THIS PAPER
I'.  Itonoll & Co.'a
llic "British Columbian.
We-liiosilny Morning, .Vnv. IK, IKKJI,
current Events nnd Opinions,
Lord Lansdowne's passage over
the Rocky Mountains was mude too
soon to enable  iiiin to be present
ut the driving of the last spike in
tlie Canadian Pacific Railway,though
that achievement would take place
a few  days or weeks after he left.
With the political necessity of the
railway, not less than the magnitude and thoroughness of the work,
Iu* was impressed; going so far as
to say, on the first point, that without the road the Confederation Act
would   not   have   been worth the
paper on whieh it was written. This
is the political view of the necessity   for   thc railway expenditure
which from  the inception of the
undertaking has found expression.
Tt is a half truth that requires to
lie supplemented  by the economic
considerations   which   the cost of
the  work  presents.     Tin's  is tlie
serious aspect of a political enterprise, over wliich it is easy to be
jubilant so long as wo confine ourselves  lo nn imaginative presentation of   the political view.     The
wisdom of undertaking so costly a
work has yet to bo demonstrated.
But it is too lute for misgivings or
regrets; tho venture has been made
and the rational thing to do is to
make the best of the road now that
it has boen built.     Whatever advantages are to be derived from a
railway connection with tlie remotest parts of the Dominion aro now
within reach.    With Uritish Columbia tho rest of the country can have
very  little trade until an increase
in the population of   tho Pacific
province  takes   place.     Krojn  the
benefits   of   Chineso   labor,  which
have been very great on tlie Pacific
coast   of   the   United   States, the
Columbians   have   voluntarily   debarred themselves,   One result will
be that tho labor by which mines of
moderate richness might have boen
worked and in which it might not be
possible  to employ  whito labor at
all, will bo wanting.   As a link between Europe nnd China, the East
Indies and Japan, the value of the
rond can only lie determined by experience.    Speculation on tho question would be waste of effort.    Ou
the   completion   of   the road, the
stoppage of the heavy expenditure
on construction will he injuriously
felt along the lino; a large amount
of labor  will  lie set free, a part of
whicli amy find new employment iu
working the road; another part will
drift back whence it came, iu search
of new railway work, while some of
tlio floating laborers will be transformed  into farmers, near the line
whicli makes settlement in the distant wilderness possible.   The severest financial trials of the company
will come at first, when it has the
maximum extent of road to work
and the minimum amount of traflic
from  which to derive a revenue,
With settlement only can an increase
of business and r-nvouue come; and
the rate of  settlement cannot be
ascertained in advance.   The repayment of the loan  of five millions
obtained from the government last
session   is   au   achievement  which
few  believed  it   would  lie iu  tho
power of the company to make at
so early a period.    A set-hack came
with tho North-west insurrection;
but the promptitude with wliich the
uprising  wits quelled  liy the exertion  of tho  local force, is likely to
create   the  impression  tliat order
will  iu future bo maintained and
life and  property  made secure in
tlie North-west,    lt is due to those
to whose charge tho work of construction was coiilided, to say that
they have performed their task with
au energy and a promptitude which
are almost if not altogether without
parallel;   and  when  it is done no
one will grudge thom any benefits
which they may  derive from the
operation of the colossal machinery
which  they  have put together and
set in motion.— The. Week
.court of Xml'AC.
ttoture Jir.Jiif-.tico McCrolghi.
All Saturday wns consumed by
the court in the cuse of O'Connor, a
convict, charged with an attempt to
escape from tho penitentiary, lie-
fore hearing evidence Mr. Bole, who
appeared for the priso-ier, snid he
wished to call attention to some peculiarities of the case. If tho dilli
cnlties placed by ihe authorities of
the peiiiientinry iu llm way of him,
as counsel for theprisuner, had been
sn placed by nulhoriiy of the Dominion giivernment, it wm right felt itt
the fact should be mude public.
When he received u commiinicatimi
from the prisoner asking hit))' to act
us counsel, he supposed tliere would
ba no difficulty in gaining access
freely to liis client, bnt ho found
himself obstructed at every turn.
In all his legal experience he never
knew an instance in which a counsel was compelled to consult with
his client in the presence of the
very persons wlm would appear
against him, as had been done in
this case. Justice and fair play
was turned into a farce, for under
such circumstances the case of his
client was simply given away to the
prosecution. Not only was he prevented from proper access to liis
client, but yesterday, when the prisoner was in gaol he hud buen denied the privilege of pencil aud
paper with which to note down necessary instructions. He must now
protest against this treatment.
The judge, interrupting, said there
must have heen a mistake ou the
part of the guards. A prisonerhud
an undoubted right to communicate
without hindrance with his attorney, and without the intervention
of other parties. Such communications were always privileged, and
they could not be so if made iu the
presence of a third person. He
could not believe there had been
nny intention on the purt of the
oflicers to obstruct Mr. Bole.
Mr. McColl said he was instructed by the warden to say that, if
thore had been anything of this sort
it was entirely without his knowledge or consent.
Mr. Bolo said he was satisfied
with the remarks that hod fallen
from the learned judge, but.he believed it his duty to bring the matter before the court and the jury.
Mr. McColl, for tlie prosecution,
then referred briefly to the nature
of the charge against prisoner. It
was contrary to law for a prisoner
in lawful custody to attempt escape,
and unless punishment could be in-
inflicted proper discipline could not
be maintained. In 1883 the prisoner
was convicted and sentenced to
years iu the penitentiary, and the
attempted escape occurred in 1884.
Jas. Fitzgerald, guard, was sworn
aud testified that on tho 16th Oct.
the prisoner was taken to the warden's ofKce upon a charge of misconduct ; he was tried, und the warden
ordered him to have irons until his
conduct would admit of their removal ; after leaving the ofllce prisoner asked to see the warden again;
witness said he couldn't, but the
warden consented and he was taken
iuto the ollice again; he asked if he
might write to Judge Grey or the
American consul; the warden said
lut wouldn't allow him to write to
uny one until he learned to behave
himself; prisoner immediately pull*
ed his cap over his eyes, jumped
through thu window, and ran nbout
166 yds. to where there was a ladder
and had reached the fence top when
Smith arrived and pulled the ladder
out from under him; prisoner had
his head over tho wall and his chest
against it aud hung on with his
hands; McKenzie, who also pursued
the prisoner, fired twice ut hiin with
his revolver, tho second shot taking
effect, in his leg; the bullet passed
through the fleshy part of the leg
near the knee, and he fell from the
fence and was curried to his cell.
In cross-examination by Mr. Bole
the witness said O'Connor had been
treated the same as other convicts;
had been punished a great many
times, mostly for talking; but there
wero other convicts who had been
punished us often for trivial offences,
Murrion for one; Marrion was just
another such convict us O'Connor,
and Barry was no worse; Barry had
beeu constantly iu solitary confinement since April 17th, 1884, except
that for the last month lie has been
allowed out half un hour eaoh day
for exorcise; during all this time he
has been in irons; O'Connor has
beeu confined iu his cell since October, 1884, until lust month, but hud
no irons; there is no hospital in the
place, aud sick convicts are treated
in their cells; after Barry's assault
ou the guard, prisoner was put in
irons,
Geo. Hut-'hcsoii, another guard,
said ho had heard Fitzgerald's evidence, and it was true. In cross-
examination he mentioned some of
the ollencos for which O'Connor had
been reported iu the penitentiary;
on one occasion he hud hid while at
work, aud whon witness found htm
the prisoner lifted an axe at him;
was reported for this, but may not
have been punished; was present
when the irons were put on prisoner; usually tho convict is allowed
piece of cloth under the irons to
prevent chafing; prisoner did not
complain of the irons being too
tight; witness remarked they were-
too loose, and would slip over his
heels; heard prisoner say something
ubout the irons.
Geo. McKenzie, one of the instructors, described lhe attempted
escape, and corroboroted Fitzgerald's
evidence, hut added nothing material.
Dr. Trew, surgeon, gave evidence
as to attendance ou prisoner after he
wns shot; he attended him immediately after the occurrence and
dressed the wound; prisoner was on
his sick book about 2 mos.; during
thut time he saw him from 3 to 5
times u week ; he wus furnished with
hatever was necessary in addition
to the ordinary fare; no convict
wns put into solitary confinement
Without witness being notified; he
did not usually call upon nny convict unless notified by the officers;
thought O'Connor mid Barry were
about, equally bad.

tVeilnesilay Morning, Nov. 18, 1885,
The execution of Riel, whicli
took place nt Regina last Mondny
morning- very abruptly ends all
speculation as to his fate. Wo have
already expressed the opinion that
the execution of Riel for liis connection with the lato rebellion is an
act of doubtful policy. Abundant
evidence has been produced to show
tliat tlio rebellion was tho outcome
of great provocation, and as far as
Riel was concerned he seems to
have abstained from acts of cruelty:
At the same time he richly deserves
dentil for the murder of Thomas
Scott in 1870—a crime as bluck as
anything in Canadian history. The
execution ot Kiel, therefore, is at
nil events demanded by avenging
justice.	
We liavo devoted u good deal of
space to-day to a report of the case
in the assize court last Saturday in
which n great deal of public interest has been manifested. The proceedings were most unusual throughout. O'Connor wns being tried on
a charge of attempting to escape
from tho penitentiary, but really
the oflicers of that institution were
on trial for cruelty, especially towards the prisoner. We cannot
accept O'Connor's statement of
grievances against the sworn evidence of the oflicers of the penitentiary, and must come to the conclusion that his charges were not
sustained. Tiie only act of injustice brought to the surface seems
to be the putting of O'Connor into
a cell adjacent to three or four
howling mad men. This looks like
very harsh treatment under the
circumstances, but perhaps it is susceptible of a satisfactory explanation.
that the peoplo of Victoria havo become awaro of the folly of clinging
to the foolish expectation of being
the practical terminus of tiie C.P.R."
For publishing this comment our
cotemporary declares that The Columbia:*; was rejoicing at the downfall of Viotoria! What rot. Where
are the sign-; of rejoicing? Wo defy
the Colonist to evolve them out of
tho sentence, and we deny that
there was any rejoicing at all over
Victoria's decay. Such a thought
could only have been evolved out of
a disordered imagination such as, we
fear, our esteemed cotemporary possesses. There has never been a wish
expressed in The Columbian for
Victoria's embarrassment; but all
right-minded men must experience a
feeling of satisfaction because the
preposterous scheme of nn impracticable gulf ferry lias been quietly
shelved by Mr. Van Home. It is
tins fact that has touched our esteemed friend of the Colonist, because the scheme has been one of
his most precious hobbies.

Address,        .1. W. HODGSON,
ISnolni Sumns, 11. 0.
On llic Rniupnge.
Our friend of the Victoria Colonist  seems   to have lost liis hend
absolutely since the visit of Mr.
Van Horne, und the final settlement
of the C P. R, terminus matter.
We certainly had no intention of
provoking a fresh quarrel with our
cotemporary, since the Battery 0
discussion left him in such a pitiable
state of mental discontent.     But,
apparently,   the   merriment   with
which' Mr. Vnn flbilie received tho
suggestion of a railway ferry across
the gulf has made our cotemporary
very angry.     He cannot or dare
not strike ut Mr. Vnn Horne, nnd
he turns with reckless disregard for
facts and consequences and endeavors to assuage his disappointment
by a clumsy  attempt to sit upon
The   Columbian.     On   our   part
there has certainly been no provocation whatever; but that docs not
matter to an editor whose mind is
thoroughly niadn up to hit somebody.    Thk Columbian published
a telegram from Victoria, in perfect
good faith, announcing the completion of arrangements for the extension to Coal Harbor and the erection of terminal works there.   The
telegram also said: "Mr. VanHorne
has pricked tlio ferry bladder, and
the Colonist came out this morning
gracefully accepting the situation."
With these statements our cotemporary is very angry, and *iu his
wrath   flies   intu the old habit of
shouting sectionalism!    Surely no
person whose mind is not hopelessly
warped by sectional jealousies will
dispute   that   Mr.   VanHorne did
effectually destroy the strange infatuation of certain Victorians, led
and encouraged by the Colonist, who
supposed  that a ferry across the
gulf would  carry  tho railway terminus to Victoria.     He laughed at
the   suggestion,  and   the Colonist
published a report of the interview
without so much as a protest against
the cruel words which had exploded
and scattered its theories of making
Victoria the   "practical" terminus
of the C.  P.  U.   If silence gives
consent, our Victoria correspondent
was quite justified in assuming by
the Ctlonist's silence that it "gracefully  accepted the situation" made
so inevitably manifest by Mr. Vnn-
Horne's statements which it published.   Morever, on the 13th inst.
it   published   n   vory   brief   but
doublo-leaded   editorial   under the
head  "Up and Doing!" in which
it   again   evidently "accepted the
situation" and urged its readers to
energetic action for the purpose of
saving the trade of Victoria. These
facts seem to us to show beyond
doubt that our correspondent's statements aud inferences were entirely
in accord with the facts.   But our
cotemporary has a further grievance,

In our advertising eolumim will be

with the Oddfellows' ball.
Europe is upon tbo edge of a mine
that may explode at any moment and
result in a war such as the world has
nevor seen.
Attention is called lo the advertisement of Messrs, M. Steves ct Sons,
who announce that thoy will soil oft' at
greatly reduced rates.
At tho oloso of Ihe assize court a
very lengthy presentment wob made
by tbo grand jury, for whioh wo aro
sorry there is no room in this issue.
The vory full despatches which we
publish to-day concerning the execution of Riel and its effects in Lower
Canada will be road with groat interest.
We understand that a new survey iB
being made in tho lower part of the
city for tho branch railway, and that
it may run along Gossett st. instead
of Richard.
Wo understand that tho two boys,
Fred, and Jas. Kelly, now in custody
in connection with thu death of tho
Chinaman who was struck with a stono,
will como beforo the magistrate's court
to-day.
A littlo girl attending the publio
school was struck ou tho head last
Monday by a stono thrown by a school
boy, and knocked almost senseless,
The practice of stono throwing is vory
dangerous, and may lead to tho penitentiary.
Messrs. Robson & Smith returned

They pronounce Bear Creek u failure

Mr. Ed. 0-,-le left this city yesterday
morning for Victoria, whero ho has accepted a situation. Mr. J). Calbick
leaves to-morrow morning for his home
in Ontario, where his aged father is
very ill. Wo hope to see both young
men back again soon.
Avoid tho harsh, irritating, griping
compound;) so often sold as purging

of the bowels by tho use of Ayer's Cathartic Tills, which are mild and gentle,
yet thorough aud searching, iu their
action.
It will be scon from an advertisement elsewhere that the first Choral
Union concert for tho season is to bo
given in the Skating Rink next Monday evening. The members of the
union havo been for some time muter
training, and a good entertainment
may be expected.
As a purifier, Ayer's Sarsaparilla acts
directly and promptly, A single buttle
will provo its merits. _ Many thousands
of people arc yearly saved from dangerous fevers by the exercise of a littlo
timely caro iu properly cleansing the
aystem by the use of this remedy,
Oh Friday the charges against
Messrs. Levi and Stevenson, of Port
Hanoy and Port Hammond, fur selling
liquor without licenso, were heard beforo tlio magistrate's court. Levi was
fined 8130 aud Stevenson $80, costs
to go with judgment, Mr, Corbould
(Corbould & McColl) appeared for tho
prosecution. We understand that an
appeal will bo mado.
Dr. Trow held an inquest yosterday
afternoon on tlio Chinaman lately reported to liavo been killed by a stone.
After hearing evidence thu enquiry
was adjourned till thu 17th December, su that a full report of tho postmortem examination may be obtained.
It is rumored that the man whs poisoned, and we presume it is with a
view to ascertain ing the correctness of
the rumor lhat au analysis of the
stomach lias been ordered.
There was a mooting of the city
counoil held ou Mouday night, but the
business was chiefly of a routine character. A communication from tho
provincial secretary was read In which
it was stated that thu attorney-general
waB of opinion thut the race-course reserve could not be conveyed tu the
city without the coiment of the legislature. As tin's reserve was originally
sol apart for that purposo wa do not
see how tho legislature oould consistently object. Application was also
iiiiulo to thc council by a person who
jiropuBUS to erect a woollen mill.
Tho Reveille is permitted to state
authoritatively that early in tho coining
spring work will begin earnestly on
the U. B. & B. C. railroad. It is generally understood that 'the Canadian
Vacilic railway will begin through
trallic in May next aud desires connection with Pugot Sound, as announced by au agent of the Canadian
Pacific recently here. This information indicates that within a year active
business by rail between the Canadian
Pacilic and Puget Sound will bo established via Bellingham Bay and thu

A Liberal Victory.—Mr. Gladstone expresses confidence that the
result of the pending elections in the
United Kingdom will givo the Liberals
moro votes in parliament than the
Conservatives and Parnellites combined. A letter from London to the
New York Times says the Liberals
claim they will eleet 400 members, at
loast. A majority in the new house
will be 330. The elections begin Nov,
25th.
That Doo Cart.—In the case of
Doane vs. Weeks & Foster, for possession of a dog curt, judgment was given
last Monday in favor of plf. The
judge held that Foster, as one member
of the firm, had power to deal with
linn property, and that in his cross-
examination Weeks practically admitted that on beini' informed by Dunne
of Fester's arrangement he did not object to it, and in effect ratified it. Mr.
Bole for plf.; Mr. McColl (Corbould &
McColl) for dftB.	
Hon. Edward Blake.—The Montreal Star, an independent journal, referring to Mr, Blake's rumored resignation of the Liberal leadership, says:
"Such a course would have many advantages for Mr. Blake personally,
but it would be little short of a public calamity, Canada iB not bo rich
in able men that she can afford to lose
from tier deliberative assembly her
ableat orator, her most learned parliamentarian, her best constitutional
lawyer, a man who in publio estimation contests the tirst place with Sir
John Macdonald. The mud slinging
and the abuse of their organs have not
succeeded in blinding the eyea of the
most thorough-going Conservatives to
the fact that in Mr. Blake the country possesses a man of whom it should
bo proud—proud of him not only for
hia ability, but also because he, unlike
ninny of our publicists, wears "the
wliite flower of a blameless life."
Only those who follow the debates in
parliament closely can understand the
value and the oxtent of the work ho
doos yoar after year for the country.
A Sad Case.—The poor victim of
Chronic Dyspepsia apparently suffers all
the ills of life, living in continual torture. Regulate the Liver and the Bowels and tone the stomach with Burdock
Blood Bitters and the dyspeptic's trouble
is soon gone.
Salmon Pack,
For the present year tho whole salmon pack in British Columbia has
amounted to 100,130 cobcb, distributed
as follows:
FRASER RIVER.
B.C. Packing Co.  12,000
B. A. Packing Co  12,000
Ewen A Co  22,000
Laidlaw A Co  21,330
Wellington Packing Co  12,000
Richmond Packing Co  8,000
SKEENA RIVER.
Turner Beeton ifc Co    5,800
Skoona Packing Co    7,000
Alert Bay Canning Co    0,000
Total casus 100,130
Tho pack for 1884 was 138,045
Shortage for 1885  32,815
This gives 87,330 cases for Fraser
Rivor, 12,800 fur Skeena, and 0,000
fur Alert Bay. The run of fish wus
enormous, and 250,000 cases might
have beeu put up. But the market
price was so low and uncurtain that
very few packers cared to take the risk
of putting up a large lot.
 .-*. 	
A Certain Result,—In all disturbed
action of the Stomach, the Bowels, tho
Livor or the Kidneys the result of taking Burdock Blood Bitten is certain to
afford prompt benefit to the sufferer.
Burdock Blood Bitters cure when other
remedies fail.
More Chilliwhack Lunch!
(CorrcKpondencc of the Columbian.
Chilliwhack, Nov. 10, — Mr. A.
Emm, of the Bartlett Houso, waa up
before Messrs. O. R. Ashwell und A.
C Welts, J.Ps., on a charge of Belling
liquor without a license last Friday.
He pleaded hot guilty, but thero wero4
credible witnesses whu proved the
chargo to tho satisfaction of the magistrates, nnd the defendant was convicted. He proceeded as usual, however,
and appealed, doubtless with a view to
gutting time to continue his nefarious
practice. This iB the fourth conviction
against this family in about a year. It
is strange that these peoplo will persist
in violating the law of tho land. Their
plea is that they are persecuted because they are not allowed to continue
the illicit traffio quietly. Persona who

Aldeh Grove, Nov. 7-— Quite a

here during the year, and thoy seem
to have come tu stay. Without exception they seem well pleased with their
claims, and although somo of them
have scarcely made a beginning, in
another year thero will bo a remarkable change in the appearance of tho
settlement. They aro a vory social and
hospitable people, and quite a number
have, put up good subs-tent tai houses,
and have their families living with
them. Ou the township line, between
townships 10 and 13, north side of

he occupies as a dwelling and store.
Adjoining this claim arc Messrs. Robt.

from tho trunk road to thu river, and
although the heavy rains havu made
tt pretty bad in places, still in time
this will be a first-class road all the

(Prom First Page.)
A. H. McBride, warden, was then
called by the defence. He said prisoner had been in custody over 2 years;
about 2 moa. after coming in he was
reportod for bad conduct; according to
reports from tho guards ho was a vory
bad character; he wos put in irons
after the Barry assault, aud bo remained about 4 mos.; the irons would probably weigh C or 7 lbs.; if any convict
reports himself sick tho steward enters
the report in the surgeon's book, and
the aurgeon visits him; men confined
in tho cells are always under the doctor's care so long as they nre there; in
solitary confinement convicts are usually kept in the cell continuously; the
cells are 8x4\; thoy have no recreation
whatever; Barry has been in his cell
since April 1884; lately he has boon
allowed frum 30 to 00 minutes each
day for exercise outside his cell; he
haa been in irons all that timo, and
when he goes out for exercise hand*
coifs are put on in addition to tho
irons; O'Connor has often naked permission to write, but has boon refused
because of bad conduct; he did writo
once to Judge Gray, and since it had
been decided to bring on this trial he
has had permisaiou to writo to his
friends; ho was nnt tried sooner because nu orders had beon received;
witness never moved iu mutters of this
kind without instructions from Ottnwa; since thu olleuce was committed
several convicts and guards havo loft,
hut tho primmer was iu juat aa good a
position for the trial as ovor he was;
there is nu official in tho province
whose duty It is lo visit the penitentiary; ho had power to forbid convicts
communicating with the outside; there
was no appeal from his decision; about
7 years-had elapsed betweon thu inspector's visits; tho assistant inspect'-!1
ceased his visits about 3 years ago;
when Mr. Trutch held an iuvusligatioii
some timo ago there were several com*
plaints; the prisoners had no counsel
on that occasion; did not know what
waa the result of thu enquiry; thero
was uu other investigation into thu
treatment of convicts; on the occnsimi
of prisoner being tried for throatuning
a guard with nn nxe, theru was some*
thing said about thu guard drawing a
revotvor; the prisoner was not punished for that offence; thero are 4 insano
convicts in the institution; thoy s-mutinies screamed day and night; O'Con*.
nor was at ono time in a celt next to |
them. OroBs-exnmined by Mr. McColl,
witness said Bury was committed for
garrotting iu Victoria) onco hu Iiml
buen fl-igged ami confined in his cell
because hu threw whitewash into the
eyes of a guardand grabbed at hia revolver; he is too dangerous to be let
out of liis cell; O'Connor was reported
7 times bofore any punishment was inflicted. A list of charges, taken from
the books, was produced. It contained
about 40, of whicli these are samples:
Writing to another convict, talking,
idling bis time, having matches in hiB
cell, lighting paper in his cell, talking
while at work, smoking in bis cell,
quarrelling at work, refusing to put on
his shoes, refusing to work with irons
on, obstructing a guard on duty, Impertinent language, insolence, giving a
book to another convict, talking in
church, having a knife iu his cell, attempting to pasB a nolo out of his coll
to a visitor, attempting to escape, disturbing tho other convicts, &c. Witness said theso charges woru made by
a great many different guards; there
wero at preseut 101 convicts, and Ihu
place wus overcrowded; there wore all
sort3 of characters, and it was diflicult
to maintain order; referring to Mr.
Bole's complaint, witness snid it was
not truo; on Dominion Day lhe prisoner was taken out into the guards'
robm whoro ho had ample opportunity
to consult with Mr. Bole; Mr. Bole
hns had occasion to visit tlio prisoner
frequently, and has never been denied
access to him; as far as ho knew no
guard or ollicer of the penitentiary bud
any ill-will towards prisoner, and his
treatment had been according to his
behavior; no other convict, not oven
Barry, hud boen so often roported for
misconduct in so short a time. In
ic-exaiiiiiiatioii by Mr. Bole tho
witness said: Your statement that difH-
cultios were put in your way is not
true; when you nppliud for permission
to seo prisoner, I consulted with the
deputy-warden, and you weru admitted
tu see him; witness said ho did not
consider that an obstruction; prisoner
frequently com plained that ho was persecuted; don't remember telling him
ho could writo to tho minister uf justico if ho wanted to; whon the inspector was horo prisoner was brought boforo him.
Jas, Fitzsimmons, doputy-wardon,
said talking was strictly against the
rules; wns present when tho irons
wero put on prisoner; thuy woro not
too tight; hu would not have allowed
irons to yo on that woru too tight; he
had one of tho usual cloth pads inside;
it is only convicts of good behavior
who havo tho privilege of writing to
outsiders; the warden has powor to refuse all outside communication with
a convict; when the minister of
justico was thero a fuw years
ago tho names of all convicts who
were known to have complaints were
givon to him; when Mr. Trutch hold
the enquiry any convict who wished
could mako a complaint. In roply to
Mr. McColl, witness said thero was no
prejudice, so far ns hu know, against
prisuticr, and ho had not been treated
with exceptional so verity--indeed, ho
had got off vory lightly.
This closed tho evidence, and Mr.
Bole addressed the jury. Ho said
it was dim of the must extraordinary
cases that uver camo within his knowledge. Many years ago the condition
of prisoners iu Kngland was a disgrace
to civilization, and led John Howard
to undertake hiB wurk of prison reform.
It was not thu purposo of tho law to
follow with vengeance, but only to
exact just .punishment so that the men
might como back to their fellows botter instead of worse. But while the
prisons of England aru surrounded
with safeguards against ubuse, in this
oase wo find that tho prisoner has been
thu victim of most extraordinary treatment, and that all tho convicts are
completely at tho mercy of tho keeper.
In tho days of slavery there were
many good masters, and yet somo slave
owners plied the lash till tho life waa
lashed out of their victims. According to thu admissions uf thu warden
antl Iris deputy a convict could only
write when he pleased tho warden.
Ho may bo placed in a dungeon 8x4A,
und in this monugerio case he might
bo confined like a beast without exercise or recreation for ft year and a half,
loaded with oliuins! It was terrible to
think of a fellow being placed in such
a position, and thero was practically
uo check. Tho causes for which this
man hud boon so often punished woro
paltry; nnd for an attempt to escape
this torture ho waa shot down like a
dog, thrust intu a confined cage and
left thero for 13 months. In 7 years
thero had been only ono visit from the
inspector. Tho convict ia th* uat into
his cell, and for 4 months lies in irons
while the warden tries to obtain instructions from Ottawa. He was instructed by tho prisoner to say ttiat
hia attempt to escape was made in the
desperato frenzy of despair, because he
had lust nil hope of othorwiso letting
his voico be heard outside the prison
walls. Hu believed that if ho made
this attempt hu wuuld be brought into
court mul would havu nn opportunity
of ventilating tho grievances under
which existence bad become a burden
to him. Now, it is proposed that this
persecuted man bo sent back for nn
extended period to tho infliction of his
tormentors! Uo repeated that obstructions had been interposed when
ho sought to communicate with his
client, and ho asked tho jury, if a verdict of guilty was found, to add to
their verdict a plain statement uf thoir
opinion of tho present system of penitentiary inspection.
Upon application of Mr. Bole, tho
prisoner was thou nllowcd to address
thu jury, which ho did fur an hour and
throe minutes. Hu mnde a great mnny
charges against thu ulticers of (hu institution. The deputy-wnrdou soomed
to bu running thu institution, and tlio j
warden had no authority.   Some pri*	
Boners wore well treated and others     H WW Bar  I'raixk. — The  well-known
weru punished at ovory opportunity,   drug firm of N. C. Poison k Co., of King*
lf    "    n    n..*i...i:-   - :...  -.. I lton, writes that l»r.  Fowler's Kxtraet
of Wild Strawberry has long Wen con
visit the place at least once or twice a
year.
Mr. McColl said this was the most
extraordinary case he had ever heard
or read of. The question for the jury
was simply whether the prisoner mado
an attempt to escape, but thu trial had
been turned into an enquiry into tho
maoagemorit of the penitentiary. The
only ell'ect of proof of bad treatment,
if sustained, would bu a mitigation of
tho sentence. Whenever thu appeal
'against tyranny touched our ears it
met with a hearty responae in tho
liuman heart; but it should bo our
care not to let such appeals divert our
minds from tho stern demands of justice His learned friend had arraigned
the statesmen of Great Britain and the
United Status on prison regulations.
But tliese prison rules were made by
law, and every oflicer iu the penitentiary was sworn to stand by them.
Thc primary crime of which this man
is suffering the penalty was thu cause
of all his trouble. It was intundud
that the torm of imprisonment should
bu one of punishment and not of pleasure. It was tho guneral opinion that
he ought to hnvu had n longer term,
aud hu regretted that this court could
impose upon him no greater additional
punishment than one brief year.
The learned judge briefly referred to
tho evidence, aud did not sec how the
jury could hesitate about a verdict
Thu man's treatment could not excuse
his attempt tu escape, The 28 charges
against hiin were all breaches of prison
rules which were binding. There was
no doubt that the act of shooting an
escaping convict, who could not be
otherwise stopped, waB justified by
law.
Alter an absence of abuut an hour
the jury found a verdict of guilty.
This verdict was accompanied by a
recommendation tu mercy, and a further recommendation that thu penitentiary ahould be more frequently inspected.
On Monday the case against Wong
Hie, for keeping a disorderly house on
Front st., was taken up. Mr. Bole,
who appeared for Hie, pleaded guilty,
and appealed tu the court for leniency
because this was the first cose of the
kind, aud because the prisoner undertook to abate the nuisance. The judge
asked whether the crown counsel
wished to call evidence bo as to enable
hiin to form an idea of what sentence
should be passed, Mr. McColl said
that as Mr. Atkinson had been specially
retained in the same case, and ho (Mr.
McColl) had had no opportunity of
making himself acquainted with the
facts, he thought Mr. Atkinson Bhould
be heard. Mr. Atkinson suid he had
been retained by the Indian department, and did not wish to press for
heavy damages, but for an abatement
of tho nuisance. Judgment was $50
or one month. Mr. McColl pointed
out thut if the nuisance wub not abated
tho man cuuld be brought before the
police court any time and punished.
Yesterday thu case Regina vs. Charlie Alexis, for murder, waa taken up,
Thu prisoner through hia counsel, Mr.
Bole, pleaded guilty of manslaughter.
Mr. McColl, for the crown, stated that
ho had given this caao must anxious
attention and thought it would not be
proper for him to oppose any objection
to the reception of the plea. From
tho length of time that had elapsed,
sumo uf the witnesses of the crown
were absent and there was no probability that they could ever be obtained,
aud though from the witnesses here
tho death of tho deceased could, he
thought, bo trncod to the hand of tho
prisoner, yet he believed that the evidence did not clearly point to murder.
Then the prisoner claimed, aud not
improbably with reason, that some
witnesses whom ho relied on were absent and whose ovidonco might place
on un entirely different complexion
thu case from that of the crown witnesses. The judge expressed hia
opinion that under the circumstances
the pica ought to be received. This
completed thu calendar. The 4 pris-1
oners will be sentenced to-day.
Iu the manufacture of tobacco from
thu leaf, sugar or molassea and gum of
some kind are used. In the manufacture of the "Myrtle Navy" brand the
sugar used is the finest white loaf, known
in tbe trado as granulated. This is a
sugar iu whioh there Is seldom any
adulteration, but te guard against the
possibility of it, all sugar used in the
factory is submitted to careful tests of
ita purity. Tho gum used is the pure
gum arabic.

Rkcina, Nov. 15.—When High Sheriff
Chapleau entered the room, Kiel, alio
had been conversing with the surgeon of
the post, arose and welcomed him in a
hearty and thoroughly unconstrained
manner. His voice is modulated nnd
bo displayed no sign of excitement. His
initial greeting was, "Well, and so you
have come with the great announcement,
I am glad, Sheriff Chaplea.t," he replied,
"that the death warrant has come,"
Riel, continuing in the same cheery way,
said: "I am glad that at last I am to bo
released from my Bufferings," He then
broke off iuto French and thanked the
sheriff for his personal consideration.
He proceeded again in English: ''I desire that my body shall be given to iny
friends to be laid iu St. Boniface." This
is tha French cemetery across Red River
from Winnipeg. The sheriff asked liim
if he had any wishes to convey as to the
disposal of his personal estate or effects,
"Mon cher," replied he, "I have only
this," touching his breast above the
region of tho heart. "This I gave to
my country 15 years ago, aud it is all
I hare to give now." He was asked as
to his peace of mind. He replied: "I
long ago made my peace with my God,
and am as prepared to go now as I can
be at any time. I am willing to go.
Shsll I be permitted to say something on
the scaffold?" he said in a tone of inquiry,
and when told ho would bo allowed, he
said smilingly, "You think if I may
Bpeak loos that it will unnerve mc. Oh!
no; I shall uot be weak; I shall feel thut
when the laat moment conies, I Bhall
have words whicli shall carry me upward," Then, reverting again to the
French tongue, and iu his own inimitable winning way for which he is so
famed to all those who have known him
intimately, he spoke again of the kind
remembrance he would retain of tlioso
who espoused his personal cause. He
closed by saying to Sheriff Chapleau, in
parting: "Adieu, mon ami! You will
hud that I had a mission to perform. I
want you to thank my frienda in Quebec for all they have dene for me," His
eye was clear and unflinching, and Iub
bearing throughout was such as to leave
a sense of admiration, by the absence of
any tremor or excitement. If he over
showed the white feather under fire or
ou any occasion, ho succeeded in keeping himself admirably under command
in the presence of his own approaching
fate. Pierre Andre, his spiritual adviser, theu arrived and waa left with

Sir A. P, Caron, and Hon. Mr. Chapleau. Let everyone of you be at your
post tonight." This bill, appearing
when people wore almost beside themselves, nothing but roaring und imprecations against Orangemen can be beard
in any quarter of the city, nnd it is stated numbers of Orangemen have been
"spotted" and are likely to feel the result of to-night's demonstration. B Battery and other soldiers on garrison duty
at the citadel not allowed out all day arc
held in readiness for any emergency,
Three scaffolds were erected iu St. Koch's
and effigies hoisted and burned. Each
mock execution was accompanied by national speeches, which will undoubtedly
stir the body, I indie the enthusiasm of
the populace, and cause a riot. At a
meeting of the St. Jean Baptisto Society
held this afternoon a resolution was
passed ordering the president to have
the national flag draped in mourning and
half-masted 8 duos, Mr. Morrison, wbo
was to have been married this morning
and had the wedding postponed on account of the execution, is loudly applauded by the French Canadian papers.
French citizens in St. John's suburbs
decided to close their houses, bit-iiucss
establishments, attend church eu masse,
and sing the solemn service for the repose of Bid's soul. The liberal organ
to-night i-; draped m mourniug. All its
articles nre most stirring. All its columns
are devoted to the Riel matter. It calls
on French Canadians not to forget the
martyr who ia murdered for the French
cause. The story that the SOth battalion
is ordered under arms is contradicted. It
is believed tbat if it is called out great
disturbance will be caused, as it h entirely composed of English-speak ing residents.
Ottawa, Nov. IG.—News of Riel'a
fate was received quietly. Protestant
Conservatives are elated at wlmt they
term their triumph. Large numbers of
them waited on tbe premier and Hon.
McKenzie Bowel t, congratulating them
for carrying out the sentence. Among
French-Caninlia ns, who are in a large
minority here, there is a feeling of displeasure,
Montreal, Nov. 10.—There wasron-
siderable excitement among French-Canadians here when news of Riel'a execution was received. 500 French-Canadian
students, carrying the tricolor, marched
thc streets cheering for Riel and denouncing Sir Jno. Macdonald. Flags half inaet.
The council this p. m. adopted a resolution to adjourn as a protest against the
odious violation of the laws of justice
and humanity in the execution of Riel.
Portraits of Riel, Chapleau, and Col.
Ouimet exposed in a window excited a
crowd, who blocked the sidewalk all
day. Riel'a picture, framed iu crane,
had a French nag for a background, 'lhe
other two were prostrate, and each had
a drop of sealing-wax on his forehead to
represent Kiel's blood. Underneath
theae pictures were Freuch inscriptions,
signifying "Traitor," "Hangman," ke.
There ia a movement on foot to have
requiem mass celebrated in all Catholic
churches in the provinces next Monday
for the repose of Riel'a soul,  '
St. Paul, Nov. 10.—The Pioneer Press
Winnipeg special states that Jackson,
Riel's lieut., who had been confined in a
lunatic asylum, escaped across the Hue
and wrote a letter to hia sister from St.
Vincent, asking her to write Sir John
Macdonald begging him to shoot him
(Jackson) and spare Riel. This escnpe
wns uot disclosed until to-day,
Regina, Nov. 10,—No oue waa permitted to enter the guard rooms until
8:12 o'clock. The scene presented then
was that of Riel ou the scaffold, with
Pero Andre and Father Mc Williams with
him celebrating mass, Riel was on his
bended knees. He received notice to
-proceed on the scaffold in the same composed manner as he had manifested the
preceding night on receiving warning of
his fate. His face was of full color aud
he appeared to have complete self-possession, responding to the service in a
clear tone. Tho prisoner decided ouly a
moment before starting for the scaffold
not to make a speech, owing to the earnest solicitations of both priests attending
him, He displayed an inclination at the
last moment to make au address, but
Pere Andre reminded him of his promise
and he walked toward tho executioner,
repeating prayers to the last moment.
Thc final words escaping him were
■Marci Jesu," He died without a strug-
;le. The executioner was a man named
ack Henderson, who had been a captive
of Riel's in 71.

■cSOIc The Terminal Facilities.
Tho Times is not in u position to
announce for a certainty the exact spot
on which tlioso aro to ho erected.
Nevertheless we can state that the
wharves are likely to he constructed
along the water frontage at Granvillo
and extending along tho Inlet toward
and beyond tho Hastings mill. Theae
will consist of slips running out into
the water from the railway track.
Covered sheds will be erected on each
iuto which a railway track will bo run.
They will be of such n capacity that a
sea going vessel of 450 feet cun either
lie in front or alongside the slip. The
warehouses will be of a substantial
character. The depot, oltices and
other buildings will be located midway betweon Conl Harbor and False
Creek; tho Canadian Pacific Hotel,
which will be in keeping with everything else belonging to tho company,
and excelled by only a few hotels in
Canada, will be located about the centre of tho Granville reserve, at a sufficient distance back so thut guosts
will not experience the annoyance
causod by locomotives whistling, bells
ringing and tho general din and hum
of heavy traffic. False Creek will be
bridged for both railway and other
traffic purposes. Tlio company's car
shop, repair shops and round house
will be located on the easterly cud of
their own property. Streets will be
opened at once by thu onmpaiiy and
graded; blocks of lots will bo indicated by a trail to bo opened; the
lols staked so tlint purchasers cnu in
speot thoir properly. All this is to
be proceeded with nt onao.—Vic.'I'imes.
Wall-Street Slim-;.
Stock-brokers have a dialect of their
own that is caviare to the crowd.
Liko the trade-marks and "shop" terms
of merchants, it must be explained to
bo intelligible to the multitude. It is
pithy, pungent, scintillating, and sometimes rank. It precisely characterizes
every variation and aspect of the
market. A broker or operator is "long
of Blocks" when "carrying" or holding
them for a rise; "loads" himself by
buying heavily, perhaps iu "blocks"
composed of any number of shares-
say 5000 or 10,000—bought in u lump,
and is therefore a "bull," whose natural action is to lower his horns and
give things a hoist. Ho "forces quotations" when he wishes to koep up the
price of a stock; "balloous" it to a
height above its intrinsic value by
imaginative stories, fictitious sales, and
kindred methods; takes "a flier," or
, small side venture, that does not employ his entire capital; "flies kites"
when he expands bis credit beyond
judicious bounds; "holds the market"
when he buys sufficient stuck tu prevent the prico frum declining; "milks
tho Btreet" when lie holds certain
stocks so skillfully that ho raises or
depresses prices at pleasure, and thus
absorbs some of the accessible cash iu
the street; buys when the "market is
sick" from over-speculation* keenly
examines "points"—theories ur facts—
ou which tu huso speculation; "unloads" whon he sells what has beeu
carried fur sumo time; has a "swimming
market" when all is buoyant; "spills
stock" when ho throws great quantities
upon the market, oithor from necessity
or to "brentc," I.e., lower the prico.
He "saddlcB the market" by foisting a
certain stuck upon it, and is "out of"
any Btock when liu has sold what he
held uf it.—Harper's Magazine,
Dr. Perron's Theory.
At lirst it was thought thnt cholera
was conveyed by the living germ, tho
comma bacillus of Koch. Now Dr.
Ferrnn is convinced that the infection
is produced by a chemical poison, of
wliich Koch's bacillus is but the outward and visible sign. Dr. Ferrnn
takes the mushroom as an analogous
poison. Not only are we injured by
thu fresh-authored mushroom of an
(inedible species, but, if wo boil these
mushrooms till we destroy their shape
wo onu still be poisoned either by eating the frngiile'tits or drinking the
water in which they have been placed.
Further, during the famine in Aragon,
the peasants accustomed themselves
to uut theae poisonous mushrooms.
They only took very small quantities
at tirst, and -.'l-ndually obtained immunity from evil eileetf. This is the
process which Dr, Furrau uow follows.
Hu boils, kilts, and dissi-lvcs the microbes su that their presenco can no

Stock-Brokers and their Pay.
Generally speaking, brokers are of
three classes. Tho first does u regular
commission business; never speculates,
except on occasions, and succeeds best.
The second are the scalpers, who buy
and sell in tho hope of making one-
eighth or one-quarter of ono per cent,
profit. Theso are the physiognomists
tf tho institution. Reading tho faces
of associates who have largo orders,
they buy with the intention of selling
to them at a rise. The scalpers aro
busiest when there are more brokers
than business. Too smart to live, they
usually die of pecuniary atrophy. Tho
guerrillas are a sub-class of the scalpers, fow in number, and by making
specialty of dealing in active stocks
have formerly fixed the umavory appellations of "Hell's Kitchen" and
"Robbers' Roost" upon certain localities of the floor. The third class is
composed of traders in particular
stocks, by whose rise and fall they
strive to enrich themselves, iu some
instances closing contracts overy day.
One trader in Northwest for sixteen
years is said to havo accumulated n
a handsome fortune, Tho ideal broker
is cool, imperturbable, unreadable,
knowing or accurately guessing the
movements of the great operators, able
to buy the most stock with thc least
fluctuation, covering his tracks in tho
execution of a largo order by purchasing in small quantities, and by shrewd
selling at the samo time. Washington
E. Connor, partner aud broker of Jay
Gould, dues presumably the largest
brokerage business in tho Exchange.
Thc compensation paid to commission brokers ought to bo satisfactory.
It is one-eighth of one per cent, upon
the purchase and upon tho sale of nil
securities other than government
bonds, estimated at par value, when
made for a pnrty who is uot a member
of the Exchange. No business can be
done for less thau this rate to non-
members. Tho minimum rate charged
to members is one-thirty-second of one
per cent., except where uno member
merely buys or sells for anothor (giving up his principal ou the day of tho
transaction), and does not receive or
deliver tho stuck, in whicli case the
rate must not be less than oue-fiftiotli
of one per cent. Tho commission on
mining stocks Belling in the market at
#5 per share or less ia $3.12i per 100
shares; if at more than 35 and not
over $10 per share, @G,25; if mure
than 810 per share, $12.50. To members of the Exchange the minimum
commission charged is $2 per 100
Bhares. Contracts for a lunger period
than three dnys carry six per cent, interest. Any violation, direct or indirect, of these laws—oven the offering
to do business at less than these rates
is punishable by expulsion from the
Exchunge, and sale forthwith by the
committee on admissions of the membership of the offender. The commission broker who carries stock for his
customer and furnishes most of thu
money occasionally charges one-fourth
of ono per cent., or $25 per 100 shares.
Ten bonds, nt par of $100 each, nro
reckoned equivalent to 100 shares, and
are subject to the same commissions,
What compensation will theso rates
afford to brokers 1 For tho yoar ending
December 31, 1881, the transactions
of the Stock-Exchange are computed
to have amounted to $12,810,240,000.
Checks fur this enormous amount were
drawn and paid. The commissions
thereon at one-fourth of one per cent,
wuuld be $32,0*10,010; which, divided
eduully among 1100 brokers, wuuld
give to each the snug littlo sum nf
$20,127. This, as related to the cost
of his scat, is almost ur quito equal to
thc Israelite's "sheet per shunt.' Nut
all tho brokers receive this remuneration; some receive Ave or six times us
much. Profit is proportioned to sizo
of sales und purchases. It is impossible, without possession of an abstract
of each broker's business, to accurately
estimate the amount uf fictitious sales,
or sales on "margins,'' as compared
with sales to bona fide investors. It
enn not, we judge, bo less, and is
probably much more, than one-half of
the whole,---Harper's Magazine.
