NOTES AND COMMENTS.
The Emperor of Austria officially
announces that ho want* the anniversary of hia accession to the
throne to be commemorated only by
acts of publio charity. Hia fint de
mand in this direction is a request
that no addresses or deputations
make him their victim. A discerning publio in Austria and elsewhere
will please tako notico what constitutes real charity,
Education has been carried to
suoh an extent in Germany that the
government has felt itself forced to
step in, and compel a lightening of
the weight of school books carried
by the children. German children
now carry their books in a knapsack.
TMe* police aro now ordered to itop
ehildron weighted tco heavily, get
their address, and bring their fathers to court to be lined for over*
loading.
Montreal has the honour of producing the most remarkable explanation yet suggested of the Whitechapel murder mystery, says an exchange. It iB declared in oold print
that the murders are not murders at
all. The bodies found aro merely
"subjects." They have done duty
in the dissecting room, and are distributed around Whitechapel simply
because the medical schools find
that this is the easiest way of getting rid of them. This should be
cabled to tho London police for
their information. Perhaps the
polico do not know that bodies found
twoor three minutes after the breathing has stopped may have been for
days in a dissecting room.
I The statistics whioh were recently
published of the number of offences
against law or discipline committed
by British soldiers provoked many
sapient comments from the Anglo-
phobist seotion of the American
press, all reflecting more or less upon
the character of the rank and file of
the British army. It appears from
tho latest report relative to tbe
United States army that our neighbours make a less favourable showing than Great Britain Tlie maximum enlisted strength of tbe
United States army is 25,000 men,
and during the post year there have
been no fewer than 1,730 courts-
martial and 20,447 trials before garrison and regimental courts for
various offences. Thete figure* give
an exceedingly high average of infractions of discipline.
Says an oxchange: Sir John
Thompson and Sir A. F. Caron went
to New York to learn how tho Americans conduct campaigns. The
morning after their arrival they
were astonished to discover in the
papers an announcement that their
visit was in connection with the distribution of British gold to the
amount of fifteen millions ot dollars.
It appears that they were supposed
to have brought this money (ram
England via Ottawa, with a view
to expending it corruptly on* our
incorruptible neighbours. The ministers have learned the use of the
foreign gold argument in a campaign. But they need not have
gone outside of Canada for the information they have gleaned, Yankee gold is a prominent factor— on
paper—in every eleotion here.

The case of a father who took the

in the London criminal courts,

Being arretted, Young declared ho
had only intended to frighten the
man, whoso heartless selfishness was
admitted by his counsel, when the
cue came to trial, and who admitted
that he waa the father of Grace
Young'a child, and that he had
treated another girl in the same
manner, but hnd married the latter.
Young, under those circumstances,
was bound over to keep the peace
but released with a warning from
the judge.

London, Nov. 17.—Th* muting of
Russian troopt on th* German ud
Austrian frontiers is oauainir *n uneasy feeling in diplomatic etaha.
The- strengthening of th* Ruiaian
frontier forcet It undoubtedly tb* result of the Slav agitation now going on
ln Bosnia, Herzegovina and the Balkan States, and is regarded by th*
Russian authorities aa a nmmiry
preparation in view of th* inanrreo-
tioniry feeling previiling among the
peoplea of thete mull itatet, ••penally
in Servia, where King Hilan'a divoro*.
hu bo sharply divided the the Serraane
that an outbreak is potiible at any
moment Austria has been qnifily
reinforcing her garrisons in Boani*
and Herzegovnia, and hu mad* pre-
parations to send a force into S*rri»
in the event of a formidable outbreak
there. Russia hu notified the dual
monarchy that if the Austrian troop*
entered Servia the Rniaiin troop*
would immediately occupy Bulgaria,
and that it wu no idle treat I* indicated by two more division* being
added to eaoh of the frontier garrison*.
The fact is leading statewnon -mt- believe that the issue cawed by th*
Rosso-Turkish war of 1877 wu settled
in such a manner u to make it exceedingly difficult to keep the peace.
The appearance of Auitria in Boani*
and Herzegovnia, whioh wu tbmt
hailed by the central European powera
a. "glad tiding, of great joy" ia now
admitted by the repreaentativea of
thote powera to be hy far the most
serious obstacle in the way of a luting peace. It is difficult to induce the
Russians to refrain from oceupying
Bulgaria when they tee Austria in
Bowia. Rightly or wrongly they re-
gard an Austrian occupation of Botnia
and Herzegovnia u an encroachment
upon the purly Slav world, to which
they cannot aud will not content

Jliiil*) Jkiiisli Columbian
Hoiulu Kra.li>-... Iter.  It. IS«8,
Several of our coteiiiporurioat havo
been discussing recently the duty of
the "true journalist." The Vancouver' WorB in an article last weok
sums up its ideas on tlio subject as
follows: "Our conception of a truo
journalist is that ha must set aside
his personal opinions—be thoy political or religious convictions—sacrifice his own self ns it were—for
the purpose of serving the cause of
his employer.." The News, not
without reason, holds up its hands
in holy horror at the enunciation of
these principles, and, speaking for
itself, says: "Our conception of an
honest and pure press is that they
should so act in all matters that tho
groat audience they have, thoir multitude of readers, will, when nn
opinion on any subject is oxpressed
by a newspaper, be willing to accept
it as a fair and accurate decision or
view based upon a complete and intimate knowledge of the facts, and
upon nothing else." The Viotoria
Times of Saturday Inst, taking the
World to task for its views, declares
that, "The duty of the truo journalist is to expound the views and
principles of the party with whioh
he is identified, and in order to do
that ho must be in accord with the
policy of the party." This, certainly, is rather a narrow and limited
code for a "true journalist," when
one considers the multifarious questions with whioh he has to deal besides politics, but, as a motto for a
party organ, it is, doubtless, honest
and comprehensive enough. If our
cotemporary of the News sticks to
his conception of the duty of an
"honest and pure press," he is not
likely to go far wrong. With regard to tho expression of what our
friend of the World conceives to be
the beau ideal of a ti-uo journalist,
we believe it requires a littlo analysis. Our cotemporary appears to
assume, for the purpose of his argument at least, that tlio "truo journalist" is not the proprie'eor—the responsible controller—of tho paper in
which his written words appear, but a
hireling, who writes for his master.
In that case we should overlook the
journalist altogether, as n more
maohino, and hold his master, who
controls at once the journalist's
pen and the policy of tho paper,
responsible for the utterances of
the journal in question. We do
not meun to say that all journalists
(not proprietors) who write for
hire are hirelings, in the offensive
senso of the term, or more machines; but we must say that suoh
aro little better, who adopt tho
principles laid down by our cotemporary of the World for journalists
who nro employees. If our cotemporary had said that tho principles
enounced by himself wero quite
commonly practised by journalists
who wrote for hire, no one could
object to the truth of the statement.
But, however conventional our
cotemporary's conception of a "true
journalist" may lie, we must dissent altogether from elevating such
nn expressed conception into an
ideal. We do not know why the
K'orM, which, we understand, is
edited by one of its proprietors,'.- should have taken the
trouble to elaborate principles
which cannot apply in its own
case. We give our cotemporary
credit for being better than its professions.
For nearly a month back different
versions of a stoiy, to the ofleot that
a wealthy young Englishman had
wedded u Sioux Indian maiden iu
Dakota, have been passing current in
the American press, Tho Chicago
magazine, America, a most reputable
publication, gives the following ao-
count of the somewhat unique affaire
d'amour, which is circumstantial and
fervid enough to suit tho wildest
romancer: "The affections of another American heiress have been
won by a Briton, but this timo the
maiden is of copper hue, and her estates consist of wigwams and ponies,
Henry Aslibui eon, the son of a
wealthy manufactuier of Leeds, was
recently visiting a Sioux agenoy
with some friends. While preparing
dinner in their tout the first day after their arrival, a daughter of one
ot the leading chiefs entered, approached the astonished youug
Briton, threw her arms around his
neck, and repeatedly covered his
neck with kiises. Though considerably surprised, the young man
made no attempt to interfere with
the girl's 8trango bohavior — he
•eemod too well pleased with tho
performance; and when she ceased
showering kisses ho in turn caught
her up in hit arms with an affections'*, hug and kiss. Ho teemed
pleased by thit ihow of love, and returned her passionate caresses. Soon
ofter an interpreter dropped in, and
he was informed o'. the remarkable
proceedings, He told the travelers
that that the girl bad undoubtedly
taken a liking to their companion,
and, in accordance with tho Sioux
l»w*, he mutt be her brave should
ahe demand him. The othen re-
moatfittoLbut the young man was
only M»l%y to abide by that law
and make the pretty young squaw
his bride at a moment's notice. The
pleadings and expostulations of his
companions bad no effect upon him,
and the marriage ceremony was performed according to the Indians'
strange fashion. Probably tho sufferings of this Pocahontas, when
her pale-faced lord tires of her
charms, will bo no greater tlinn those
of the average American girl who
throws away hor life upon some
vicious lordling, and awakes to find
that coronets are but dross and af
foction cannot be bought."
It is positively refreshing,-.aftor
wading through tho sickening political cant of the American partisan
press, which has been aggravated
tenfold as the climax of the lute
presidential campaign approached,
to read tho ringing, truthful utterances of an honost and independent
journalist, who sees his country's
political by.pluy as others see it, and
does not scruple to toar off tho thin
veneer und expose the selfishness
and tho farcical side of tho great
presidential hipprodromo. "Now
that tho presidential contest is over,"
says America, "and the struggle for
tho Irish vote is ended, the country
will once more return to its normal
state of activity, and men's minds
will revert from the political strife
to the ovory-day affairs of life. Business interests ivill onco more assumo
a healthy guise, nnd politics being
relegated to the professional politicians, men in private life will become engrossed in private ventures,
assuming toward the affairs of the
nation an nir of supino iudiffercnoo,
Four years henco tho two great parties will renew the struggle for supremacy; a real or imaginary issue
will arise; two tickets will be placed
in nomination by two bodies of
professional politicians purporting
to represent their respective parties,
but in reality consisting of several
hundred apostles of place and plunder, and two grandiloquent declarations of principles will be adopted,
not intended to be fulfilled, but to
catch votes. From Maine to Oregon men's passions will be aroused
over the partisan struggle; a stagnation of business will ensue, and the
great mass of the American people
will bo cojoled or coerced into voting
for one candidate or the other, only
to find that in the ensuing four years
the promises of the victors are unfulfilled, and the evils of partisan
misrule aro as rife as ever. Such
is American politics. Reformers
there are, to be sure, but their efforts
to ameliorate the present state of
affairs are but puny essays drowned
by demagogic corruption. If tho
reformer strive to correct abuses
within his party he is ridiculed as
an impractical theorist; if ho withdraw from his party with the hope
of administering a deserved defeat,
he is denounced as a traitor by his
friends and viewed with suspicion
by his new allies. What is to be
donel What is tho first evil to be
remedied! These aro tho questions
which demaud a solution." After
n clear and forcible chain of reasoning, at considerable length, and
several illustrations well to the
point, the writer in America concludes perfectly logically: "Not
only should tho president be ineligible for ro eloction, but his term of
office should be extended to six
years in order that tho country may
be saved the turmoil and business
stagnation accompanying frequent
presidential elections. The arguments against such a measure are
many, but Us advantages outweigh
them tenfold. Such a reform is not
an idle demand of a sentimental
theorist; it is prompted by experience, and is aimed at ono of the
greatest evils of the American political system. One hundred years
ago, when our constitution was
framed, our country was but a
neocracy; shall wo not profit by the
trial of time and correct an abuse
which experience has proved to be
the gravest error of that constitution!" The dual reform which our
American cotemporary urges in connection with presidential matters
must strike every ono at aU conversant with tho subject as a most admirable proscription for the crying
ills which it is sought to abate. For
the credit and welfare of our neighbor, the great republic, as well as
for the peace and comfort of those
nations (our own among tho number) with whom she is necessarily
brought into contact, wo trust that
the efforts of reformers—true patriots liko America—may prevail over
rampant demagogism and corruption.

FEEING THE DOMINIE.
'. Some SensibU Suggestions with Regard
to Tbls Matter* ■—
,( Those old questions concerning paying
the minister for each special serricn as
confirmations, baptisms, weddings and
funeral services are again np for agitation aud discussion.
People are to be found who think not
■ only tbat a minister ought to work for
almost nothing aud find himself, but that
he ought to include all these special services iu the work lie does for his regular
salary.
It Is hard on the ordinary minister. As
to the few ministers Who receive princely
salaries, their fees are large in proportion. People who expect speoial services of them generally do the fair thing
as to compensation.
Such special services as ought to be
performed in ohurch when the congrega-
gatlon is assembled are usually considered part of a minister's regular duty.
Should a minister be called to a private
house to baptize a baby there la an evident propriety in making him a present
of some kind In return for his kindness
aud aa a compensation for his trouble. It
, may be in cash, or it may be some accept*
able article for table use or for household
' decoration.
People who giro hooks to ministers
generally make the mistake of selecting
. some book which the minister does not
' want. Some good people who recently
gave their pastor ft copy of the Bible did
not atop to think that be already had In
his library about fifteen copies in various
styles and languages.
' In wedding fees it may safely be said
that the man who gives none is a mean
, fellow, not worthy to bave a good wife.
\ Ho who pays only a dollar or two Is not
much better, unlets his abject poverty is
the cause of the imallness of thelee.
Why n minister should be expected to
attend ami conduct a funeral without
charge is hard to guess. It is quite aa
hard work, both for mind and body, as to
preach a sermon.
More attacks of clerical bronchitis and
■ pneumonia have been suffered by going
* to funerals than from any other cause.
The person who stands bareheaded on tbe
cold ground or damp boards beside an
open grave is apt to be reading bis own
■death warrant while he pronounces the
' words of the funeral service.
In a word, the minister ought to be as
squarely dealt with as any other man of
, any profession or calling who renders services of auy kind.—Kew Vork Press.
IQNORANOE OF SANITARY LAWS.
The Work of the Engineer as Supple-
I.       mentor/ to Tbat of tha Anhtteet.
f!   Iu his census reports Dr, Billings estl-
* .nates that in the United States 100,000
1 deaths occur over year from strictly pre*
£ ventable diseases alone.
Ji   This is unquestionably a very moderate
y estimate, and, if there are reckoned also'
Ij 13 cases of serious illness for every death,
we see what a great amount of suffering
results from Ignorance of sanitary principles.
But how Is this .ignorance manifested;*
Are not our architects competent to deal
with the problem of household sanitation?
It will be said, perhaps, that it Is tho
urovinco of tbo architect to direct tbe
entire work of house building and to
L arrange every detail of tbe fittings.
But It should bo considered that the
science of sanitation is broad and comprehensive, Yeara of study and of experi-
]l enco in sanitary work are necessary for a
I' proper understanding of the subject,
It is perhaps unfortunate that there is
so little in the severe and unpleasant
details of this work to commend it tb
those whoso tastes have led them tothe
stutly Of the more attractive principles of
artistic ceustruotion and tho science of
esthetics.
An architect should have the soul of an
i Artist, but then lira few men whose
'-'-nature is so broad as to combine truly
! artistic tastes with a love for the details
[ot difficult mechanical work, Involving
1 tha necessity for undertaking,
henslve and scientific research; '
It li the province of the engineer to
engage in an occupation of this kind.
Bis natural inclinations and bla rigid
training in scientific pursuits fit him
especially for the direction of matters
relating to drainage and sewage disposal.

Tko Discouraging Ellieriences Which
They Are Bore To Hate.
Tbe tourist, and especially tliu American tourist of the, cheapest kind, haa at
lut penetrated Into Russia, and for tbe
comfort of these travelers otrtain arrangements bave been made.
In some hotels at St. Petersburg nnd In
one at Moscow tbe porter speaks English,
and some of the waiters comprehend more
or less. French and German are more
widely understood and spoken, but it Is
useleu to disguise the faet. that, the language of Russia is Russian, and without,
at least, a little Russian the tourist must
have a guide attached to his person.
St. Petersburg and Moscow are both
vast towns; tho distances from point to
polut aro enormous; tbe squares are so
broad that ono can hardly think of walking across them; the streets measure miles
in length and furlongs ln width.
The consequence I* that ln Russia
nobody walks; oven tbekttohen-mald wbo
goes to market to buy a cabbage or a
water-melon rides ln a swift droshkn.
Now, theso droBbkas are subject to no
fixed tariff; In real Oriental fashion you
must bargain each time you hire one.
How can you bargain without1 knowing
something of tho language*
Iu tho iimsouma, the churches, the public mnniimunts and the shops, tbl. same
difficulty of language stands very much
in the way ot the tourist's comfort.
Suob being.tbe case ln tbe capitals,
what mutt be tbe atate of affitrtin minor
townsf How delightful 1* tbe lituation
of tbe tourist who starts on a seventy-
hour rallwny Journey, ln tbe course of
which he may have to change train, four
or live times, drive across towns from ono
station to another, explain to porters, ask
information from station-masters or train-
conductors, who understand nothing but
tho language of Gogol and Poucliklnel
Remember, too, tbat tbe tourist who
arrives unprepared ln the country caiinut
read even tho names of tbestatioiis.wliicb
are inscribed in Slavoulo letters only, lu
the hotels tbe bill of fare lsuulntelllgtble,
and communication with tbe waiter can
only take place through pantomime,'
On tbe otber hand it muat ho stated
tbat lu a flrst-class carriage on n Russian
railroad you never fait to find somo passenger who speaks French, and the educated Russians never seem to tiro of showing kindness and courtesy to foreigners,
and piloting' them through traveling
difficulties.      . —-_-_...

A lid* and a gentleman were traveling
'together on an English railway. They
'were perfect strangers to each otber.
Suddenly tbe gentleman saldi
"Madam, I will trouble yon to look ont

going to make seme change* In my wealing apparel."
"Certainly, sir, "she replied,wlth politeness, rising and turning her back npon
hlm.  In a abort time he said:
"Now, madam.my change is completed,
and yon may resume yonr seat."
1. When the lady turned she beheld ber
male companion transformed Into a dashing laily with a heavy veil over her face.
Now, sir, or madam, whichever you

To his great surprise, on resuming hi*

LADY. HAMILTON.
The Ml.trea. of 1***J V.lna In Connection with tor History of Adv.rtl.lng.
Iaady Hamilton, whose name is preserved to posterity in association with
that of Lord Nelson, is also curiously connected with the history of Advertising. >
Iu 1779, oue Dr. Graham, a graduate of
the University of Edinburgh nnd a man
ot elegant penon, manners and address,
after a charlatanlsh career In America,
Scotland and England, opened In Loudon
a gorgeously furnished and decorated
"Temple of Health," for th. promotion of
longevity, beauty, intellect and morals by
menus of electricity, magnetism, ozone
and music.
His advertisements, In points of rhetorical construction and mastery of tbe art
of playing npon human credulity, curiosity, and love of the mysterious and tbe
forbidden, have rarely been equalled and
probably bave never been mrpassed.
What bli advertisement* locked ln
drawing power, the fame of bis lectures
wlthlu the Temple supplied. Rut ths
real "magnetism" wlthlu this crystal
palace of humbug was to be found In tlie
extraordinary charm and beauty nf "Ves-
Una, the Rosy Goddess cf Ilenlili," who
as "Priestessof tb* Temple" ami scaled
on the "Celestial Throne," recited a lecture composed by tbe Doctor ou tho
"mesne of preserving health, beauty find*
personal loveliness, and serene mental
brilliancy,even to th* extrcmest old ago,"
serving llkewls* to "exhibit, In her own
person, a proof of the all-blessing effects
of virtue, temperance, regularity,-simplicity and moderation."
This matchless divinity, whoso "warm
lecture" was to be bad iu print fur half a
crown, was Emma Bart, originally a
nursemaid, afterwards successively a
lady'smald; painters'model; courtesan;
priestess of ths temple, as already narrated; wife of ihe British ambassador at
Naples and Imperious mistress of tbe
great Admiral.
For some yeara tbe Doctor and the fair
but frail Emma grewln fame and fortune
nnd lmpndence, and then tbey parted; be
to sink to ultimate obscurity and penury
and she to' reach In tlm* tho "bad unit-
nine." whleh for many generation, yet
to come ber memory Is destined to occuiiy,

CENTRAL AMERICAN BANANA TREE.
A OJum lor a* EuKrprlilng Mam to
Jttnke * Fortune.
A young Salvadorlan, with the dark
eye* and Inky hair of his country, talked
to * reporter th* other day about the
Central American banana tree.
Tbe tree II two and a half to three feet
In circumference at Its base. Its tapering, fibrous stem, without n branch, Is
from ten to fifteen feet tn height. The
fibres, separated by a thin pith, are as
long aa the body of the tree.
These fibres are used In Salvador Just
as they are taken from the tree ns shoe-
strlngsand cords for all purposes. The
natives use them largely for bridle reins
and lariats. The raw material costs only
transportation to tho ropewalks.
Each banana tree bean In tb* twelve
months of its existence only one bunch of
fruit, but from two to ten trees spring
from the roots of tbe one that has fallen.
In Salvador the bunch ot bananas Is
worth fifteen cents, and the dead tree
nothing.
A cordage factory or paper mill or coffee sack maker, were not the dead trees.
numbtrlM., would give for rack tree ten
time* the value of th* fruit It has produced.
Split, dried and packed, the bodies of
thibananatr.es might be shipped profitably to tbe United States. There Is no
reason why some enterprising American
should not take them In hand.

had disgraced his name, in a houso of

go homo with him. Sho did not appear at all alarmed or conscience-
stricken on the appearance of her husband, and received him as though
nothing had happened. The couple

FALL ASSIZES.
(Mr. Justice McCrolght Presiding.)
MONDAY.
His lordship took tho bench at 11:30
o'clock.
Rogiim vs. Jones, for the murder of
Frank Durant. The prisoner pleaded
not guilty.
Mr. Bole, Q. O. and Mr. McColl for
defense, and Mr. Drake, Q. C, for
prosecution.
The empanneling of the jury was
then proceeded with and after a great
many challenges a suitable twelve was
selected with Mr. W. J. Brewer as
foreman.
Frank Bruneau, sworn, said: I live
about 5 miles below St. Mary's Mission; I know the prisoner, he lives
about a third of a mile from me and
his land adjoins mine; I saw the
prisoner, Jones, the day before ihe
shooting occurred; 1 went to hii houae
with Durant; Jones, his klootchman,
Durant and I went down to Langley in
a boat together and stayed thore half
an hour; we then returned to Jones'
house, which was reached about 4 o'clock Saturday morning, and stayed
there threo hours; Jones insisted that
we should all havo breakfast with him;
thero was no quarrel of any kind up
till this time between Durant and
Jonei; Durant and I returned to tho
house about 4 o'clock in tho afternoon
and wo found Jones in the kitchen: he
was alone; wo sat down nnd tho threo
of us had a drink together and wore
quito friendly; we lighted our pipes
and talked for a while till 6nally our
conversation turned on klootchmen; I
don't know what Jones said first but
Durant auBwered: "JoneB you have a
grudge against me about Aututa, but I
declare to God I never had anything
to do with her," Jouos nnswered:
"You are a lying son of a bitch."
Both men then rose and Durant slapped
Jones on tho face several times; Durant then left the room and Jones
went into the bedroom saying: "I'll
kill the son of a b h" nnd commenced to load the gun; I saw my cattle passing tho back door nnd went
out and had only boon out a half
a minute when I heard a gun
shot; I went into the house by the
back door and saw Jones standing
with the gun in his hands and said to
him: "Jonca, what havo you done?"
and he answered; "I've killed tho
bastard." The gun was similar to the
one produced; Durant was lying at the
water's edgeand called to me: "Help
me Frank for God's sake, for I am
dying," I rati up the railwny track
and met Cadotte and Preston and
asked them to come down, as Jones
had shot Eddie; we went down to
Jamieson's first and told him what
had happened and we went to the
house together; Jamieson stayed talking with Jones while 1 went down to
see how Eddie was; before wo got to
tho house I c.lled to Jones to know if
he was still on the shoot, and ho answered: "No, I have done ull I want
to for the present." I found Durant
lying on hia belly close to tho water;
Preston then arrived with the rope and
we tied Jones up, hands nnd legs;
Preston and I went down and brought
up Durant to the ateps, thon into the
houae; the deceased's leg was nearly
off; we tied his leg with a handkerchief;
Preston went away for more neighbors
and shortly a few came in and we laid
Eddie on the bed; Jonos- objected to
us putting Durant in his bed; I have
heard Jones at different times make
threats against the deceased; he said
Durant was too intimate with his
klootch aud if he (Jones) could only
kill Durant, he would be ready to die;
1 think it muat bo two years since
Agnes left Jones; I have been in
Jones' house several times n week; I
heard him make threats against Durant two or three months beforo this
occurred; Durant was working forme
at tho time of the shooting; ho had
been working in the neighborhood for
three years; we put Jones and Durant
into a boat and brought them to Westminster, '    "" we '",f,
Cross-examined by Mr. Bole: I
have krown Jones for 5 years and
Durant for 3 years; Jones frequently
used vile language; Jones often called
a man a son of a b—h but did not
apply it frequently; Jones is not a
boasting man; I would not call him a
blowhard; ho is fond of spinning yarns;
when telling what ho has done or whst
ho intends to do Jones is in the habit
of using strong language; I visited
Jones' place with Durant on Friday;
we had no business at the time; there
was no whisky in the house; wo did
not ask for any; we remained about
2 hours before starting for Langley:
I don't know who proposed to go to
Langley; Durant did not propose we
should go to Langley and get some
whisky; I do not know who proposed
it; wo call it 8 miles from Jones' house
to Lnngley; Durant nnd I pulled the
boat down and we all assisted to pull
it back; I bought two gallons of whisky
and we each had two or threo drinks
before wo left; it was between 4 and 5
o'olock in the morning when we got
homo; we had about a dozen drinks on
the road home; I felt all right and
was not drunk; wo did not drink again
till between half past 0 or 7 o'clock;
you know what a common drink is as
well KB I do; wo divided the whisky,
one-third of which wont to Jones, and
then went home; I had four or five
drinks during tho day; Durant was not
a heavy drinker; we dug potatoes all
day; I told Eddie we would have to
go down to Warnock for a boat; Jones
was very jealous of Sophie; she hud
only one eyo and bo had SarnhJOariepy;
I have seen Sarah at Jones' house
within tho last 12 months but the day
or dato I cannot remember; Jones
never was jealous of me regarding
Sarah; Durant proposed wo ihould go
down to Jones' and have a drink; Jones
brought out the bottle and passed it
round and we all took a drop; the
bottle wai then put on the table; we
drank out of the bottle; Jones and
Durant talked about Klocohmen for a
few seconds; the conversation wu very
short; I swear Jones and Eddie did
not havo a rough and tumble fight after Eddio slapped his face; tho fight
could not have taken place without me
seeing it; as booh as he was slapped
Jones went into the room and commenced loading the gun; I was sober
at the time; I swear I did not go into
Mr. McColl's oflice and tell him I was
afraid of being prosecuted for perjury;
Shirley did the talking; Mr. McColl
told me not to say anything about the
caao to him as he was acting with Mr.
Bole for Jones; I did not tell Mr, McColl I had told an untruth when I aaid
I was out of tho house when tbe shot
was fired; there was no particular
thing I wanted to correct in my former
stutement before tho coroner's jury;
neither Shirley or myself said anything
to Mr, McColl about the evidonce
given before tho magistrate; I did not
ask what punishment I would get if I
made a mistake in the evidence; since
tho inquest I havo talked to several
people concerning the ease; Eddie's
voico was quite strong and when taking
him into the boat he complained of the
Sain that moving him occasioned; we
id not give Eddie any whisky on the
way down,
Cross-examined by Mr. Drake: I
wont into Mr. Shirley's shop and said
my memory was poor and what would
bo the result if I mado a mistake;
"Well," said he, "rather than be called a liar by Bole I would advise you to
go und aeo Mr. McColl; we went up
together and explained our errand;
Mr. McColl replied that he was in
with Mr. Bole in the case and that it
would be all right; Jones frequently
showed his jealousy of Sophio and
would nover go anywhere without taking her nlong.
To a juryman* Sophie was in the
bedroom when the shooting occurred;
deceased went out of the house before
I did; after the shooting 1 found Jones
on the verandah at the front door;
when I went out to see to my cattle
tho prisoner had the gun in his hand;
I do not think the deceased heard
Jones say ho was going to get the gun;
I did not leave the house through fear.
Charles Preston: I live one mile
from Jones' house; I remember Oct
6th; I saw Durant and Bruneau go into Jones placo, and a fow minutes
afterwards I hoard a gunshot; some
minutes afterwards 1 saw Bruneau
coming towards me and when he came
up ho told mo Jouos had shot Eddie.
Wo wont to Jamieson's and I said we
would .have to arrest Jones; while
waiting for a tope Bruneau and Jamieson walked ahead of me; when I got
