were twu cases for adjudication, one a
cuse of drunkenness uud Ihu other one
uf common assault, lu the first Instance Mr. lluggli'H iii.nl, a pertinent
siiggcstiun which is worthy of Immediate consideration, The magistrate
called attention tu the fact that prl-
•suiters, coulil not be sent down to Nuw
Wostmlpstor for a period less tban
sixty duys, which term wus too severe
a one lo Impose in many cases, He
considered that if offenders hud to be
detained iu the city guol for a rather
less periotl that some definite work
shoulil be given In them. Mr. Hug-
glcs Instanced lhe custom in the Hast
where prisoners were put onto stone
brooking. In Hie case of Josopb Lc
Plant, who wns thc lirst offender tu

but wbo was by nu moans making his
initial appearance ill the local court,

Worship assurud Mr. Huggles that he
could 'safely depend upou the eo operation of tho city cuuncll.
Mr. H. X). tiehulii. remarkod that
there were at the present time inuny
indications of the city's growth. The
appointment of a police magistrate
was one more. Ou behalf of thu bur,
Mr. Scbull congratulated the city on
the appointment uf Mr. Ilugglos, It
was uuly right at this time, the speak
er added, that a tribute should be paid
tu those who had administered justice in the past Ifi wss confident
that Mr. Hugglcswuuld, in tbo execution uf his new duties, maintain the
best traditions of British equity. Iu
this respect, the bar would be only
tuo euger to co-operate with him.
Mr. llugglcs, replying, suiil that he

Testing Out
Ouf impujies cannot always bo ill
ponded upon, and while wo claim that
a constant am) iliacouraging review of
thu past ia us unwise us it iu uuwhulc
some, yet wu must admit that, to gu
forward steadily ami with conscious
lei'liimle, an occasional summing up of
jvhat lius behind is inevitable.
Wo may woll question oursulvus as,
to the uiiteotne of thut momentary lit
qf passion and resentment; not with
tliu purpuse of reliving ami resuffering
it, but as a preventive uf tlm mnn
lack of ,■!' • .'inii'i today. What guod
did Ihu outburst ucciiniplishf It bono-
flttcd—wlionit Surely not the individual who forgot himself, hiu self-respect
and the forbeuriiuce due In others; ami
by uo means Ihuf uue upun whuso head,
whether guilty or innocent, our wrath
wus poured.
In glancing backward iu the face of
present danger we liud that such uu
experience dues not test out sotilfuo
torily. Wu do not cure to invite u return of the self-loathing we cun recall
without effort. Heller try another plan
in the fuce of the former result.
Huw ubuut the business transaction
iu which we took advantage uf ll less
knowing une lluili ourselves, who left
