Documents seized at the bouse

were being nanufactured, reveal
that it was pari of the plot to kill

The discovery oi th? plot was
made through the arrest and con.

Europeans were killed'.

MAY DAY.
Yesterday's Mav Day celebration
will go down in history as one of
the greatest successes that ' has
marked Children's Day iu the
Royal Cjty since its inception in
1870. A new departure was���made
in the provision lor, the. children
taking part in, ths procession and
the. cbter of the children broke
along Columbia street as the sun
burst through the cloud's for a moment to smile on Westminster's
young and vigorous lite, well re-i
paid those responsible for, the happy thaught.of substituting vehicles
for the scattered march ot years
past. The main object was gained
and tbe youngsters arrived at,
Queen's Park fresh and eager fpr
the fun. The committee d\d well,
the hands did well, the ex-Queen
did well, the Queen did well, the
Boys.'" Brigade did well, the children did wejl, the mugwumps did
well, for they, were absent, and not
a complaint was heard during the
whole day. The promptness iu.
starting, the parade is also worthy
ot commendation. ��� Westminster^

p. in., the hour when all ticket offices
closed. '1'hoeafih oollectlO-t on a train often
amounted to ?o00 In one night, Tho conductor nt the end of a round trip would
tnke this money to the easblor's window
und wo'jid write a report on a sheet of pa-
Bor that would rood something liko this:
'Dear Sir���Please find inclosed WHO for

even taku a receipt from the cashier, All
tho cashier did was to smile and say.
'Good morning.'
"liut a p.qssongnr conductor today has

lng mysterious boles in ticket., v. riling
duplicate checks und making out tedious
i ft'ports. The coupon tickets are all bound
around wllh red tape. Gush collections
cause un immense amount of tediouHwurk
today. Tbo conductor must now account
for every cash tare collected by giving tbt
passenger u drawback, or else a duplicate
oheck in tho presence of other passengers
at the time thu faro ls taken.
"Then, too, tie oonductor hns to sort
all kinds of tiekets in station order and
return them in that manner, tilling out a
blank giving the number of inch kind ol

goes from station to station, and tint

It would take half a day for mo to give nil

to speak to a foreigner is to uso a low, dis
tinct tone, and, above all, pronounce oucb

which natives fall iuto of running the last

Ownership et Stnate "Bnstneaa.*'
On�� of the peculiar tilings ubout a
topj righted play is that auy little piece
of business or any new lines which
may be inserted in tbe manuscript
while a stock company is playing the
drama belong thereafter to tlie man
iWbo owns the copyright
Every time a stock company rents a
play for production from the owner ot
the copyright it is cut, interlined and
added to before it is produced. A stage
manager, for instance, may interpolate
some speeches in order to work up to
thc introduction of a song or specialty,
or be may strengthen tbe climax by
putting ln some new and strong lines.
Often these Interpolated lines prove to
be tbe most striking In the play and
make decided bits. If tbey are left in
when tbe manuscript goes back to its
owner, tbey become bis property absolutely nnd may not bc used by the
man who wrote them in any other production; therefore shrewd managers,
before they return a play to its owner,
always take great pains to erase every
scrap of correction or interlineation.
In this way only may they keep what
really belongs to tbem.-
The First Lawbook.
The well known Assyriologist, Dr.
Hugo Winckler, published an account
of the legislation promulgated by King
Amraphel of Babylon, whlcb, ao far m
is known at present, was the flrst book
of laws over given to tbe world. King
Amraphel lived 2,250 yeara B. 0. and
ls mentioned ln tbe Bible aa a contemporary of Abraham, ao tbat hia statutes
were drawn up fully five centurlea before the laws of Moses. They number
282 and contain tbe following:
"tf a woman who sells beverages
gives bad value for the money paid
her, she shall be thrown into wnter.
"If a wife be a spendthrift or If she
otherwise neglect her duties, her husband may put her away without compensation, but if a man put away his
wife for no other reason than that she
has no children be shall return ber
whole dowry.
"If a betrothal be rescinded, the man
shall pay the woman compensation.
"A widow witb grown up children
may not marry again without permission trom a judge."���London Express.
