Famine In India.
Well authenticated reports frum India sh*w the condition of the famine
stricken districts to be simply appalling. It is sstimated that six millions
ot British subjects are on the verge of
starvation. Already the famine has
claimed thousands of victims. The

SATURDAY, FEB. 5, 1897.
Liberty of tho Press.
The action of libel differs from other
actions in one important particular.
Usually tbe jury pronounces upon the
facts, and the judge applies the law.
In libel, however, the jury decides
both as to the existence of tbe alleged
facts and also as to tbeir legal bearing
The object of this is to protect the
liberty of tbe press. During tue last
century an unknown wricer, who called himself "Junius," made a series of
tremendous attacks on the leading men
in puplic life in England, no-withholding his bold hand from the Kin--
himself. Iu his celebrated letters lie
employed wide learning, remaikable
' argumentative-dexterity, biting satire
and terrible invective, clothed in pointed, diiect and trenchant prose, which
has never been surpassed for its own
The letters of ������ Junius" were published bv a printer named Woodfall,
wbo was accordingly indicted. Previously, at the trial of Wilkes and the
printers of the " North Briton," Lord
Mansfield had laid it down that it was
the province of the judge alone to
judge of the criminality of a libel.
When Woodfall came before the court
His Lordship told the jury that "as
(or the intention, the malice, the ded
tion or any harder words it might he
given in informations for libels, public
or private, they were merely formal
words, mere words of course, mere inferences of law���with which the jury
were  not   to  concern   themselves."
Again, in a case against the " Evening Post." His Lordship directed them
lo confine themselves to the fact of
These decisions left the real decision
virtually to the judge, and were seen
to be fatal to the liberty of the press
and of the subject. A powerful agitation was set iu motion against such
a construction of the law. The liberal
view was espoused by such great men
ns Mr. Burke, Lord Ashburton, and
Lord Camden. Mr. Erskine maintained the rights of juries in the courts,
and finally Mr Fox brought in a bill
which was passed iu May, 1792, 32
George III., chapter 60. This bill
settled the law as it has remained substantially to this day. Of it Lord
Macaulay says: ''Fox und Pitt ure
fairly entitled to divide the high honour of having added to onr statute
book the inestimable law which places
the liberty of the press under tho protection of juries."   Ex.
The Philadelphia and Heading railway hue-paid almost a million dollars
so far in damages to the relatives of
these wbo suffered at tbe great disaster at Atlantic City last rummer,
when 44 persons lost their lives and *
large number were injured. This is u
terriffic price to pay for the carelessness of an employee, or for some defect
lu the system, but a few such lessons
will teach American railways to be
mors careful of human life. The number of fatal accidents in England is a
trills compared with what ic is iu
America. Everything is doue there to
render travelling by rail as safe as
walklag slong the streets.
A City of Rich Churches.
There are one hundred andeighty-'two
permanent places of worship in Toronto, not including various gospel and
mission halls.
The value of church propertv used
for places of worship in Toronto is
nearly five millions of dollars.
Toronto has a church for every
twelve hundred of its population, not
including missions, of which thero is
one to almost every church.
The protestant churches of Toronto
are worth, with the ground on which
tbey stand, over four million dollars,
and the Roman Catholic nearly one
million dollars.
The Salvation Army has over eighty
six thousand dollars worth of property
which is used iu its work in Toronto.
A Map of North Kootenay.
P. Leake M. E., who has been engaged for the past two months in preparing a mining map of North Kootenay, has now completed his work and
will shortly forward the map for pub*
lication. It is a very complete map,
giving the watershed of the Upper
Columbia in very minute detail, some-,
thing never before attempted. It does
the same for the river system of Trout
Lake. It places as neurly correct as
possible all the properties of the various camps, and locates all the principal townsites, trails and railway routes
as correct in every particular as far as
research and information can go, and
it will be a most useful and important
factor in advertising and making
known this northern country and its
camps. It will be printed in colors,
and will be in size 24 by 20 inches. As
it is the first of the kind overproduced
for North Kootenay it would, perhaps,
not be amiss for the Government to
purchase a certain number for use in
the recorder's offices and, may be, for
distribution. ���Kootenay Mail.
Vancouver Gossip.
Vancouver, B. C, Jan. 80.���The
city through its representatives in the
council demands that the Dominion
government shall continue the Crow's
Nest railroad route through to the
coast. Nothing else will satisfy public opinion in this part of British Columbia. A long document setting out
in detail the claims of the coast and
the advantages of the route, is to be
sent to the minister of railways under
the seal of the city and a mandate will
be given to the Dominion members
from this province to press the demand
with all possible vigor.
Democratic ideas are making headway in the wild west. Tho Vancouver
city council is ubout to consider an application to the legislature to amend
its charter by abolishing tbe ward
system and property qualifications for
mayor and aldermen, uud substituting
for the latter an occupation franchise
as in England and Scotland.
The labor party demand also the
abolition of all contract work by the
city, aud a substitution nl day labor.
This lust change is not likely to be
made, as the city already employs day
labor in all cases where it is thought
possible, and only gives contracts
where absolutely necessary.
Many citisens 61 Vancouver are indignant ut the funeral obsei-uies'wliich
took pluce over a monkey. A pnt
monkey, which had been living with
a Vancouver family for yeurs, went
the way of all flesh, and it wus un-
nounced iu the local press, that the
monkey's mistress had been nervously
prostrated for severul days over the
shock at losing her companion. The
sequel to the story is that a handsome
casket was purchased for the monkey
whose remains were buried in a plot
in the cemetery. Some treat the matter us a jest; others declare in ull
seriousness that the monkey line
should be drawn on cemetery intor-

The Famine Relief Fund.
Ottawa, Jan. 29. ���Replying to a
cablegram from the Governor-General
with reference to the movement for relieving the India famine, the Seoretary
of State for the Colonies has telegraphed to His Excellency remarking that
the energetic action of Canada will be
warmly appreciated. His Excellency
has arranged to send the results of the
Canadian subscription direct to Calcutta, in care of the chairman of the
central relief oommittee.
The Montreal " Star's" Indian famine relief fund had reaohed lit noon
$16,000 and this afternoon another
thousand flowed in. The 116,000 was
forwarded by the '��� Star " to the Governor-General to-day. Among the
the large subscriptions received hereto
day were $500 from tho Canada Life
Assurance Co., and a like amount from
the Union Bank.
The Manftoba Government will give
92,000 to the fund, the city of Winnipeg probably tl,000, and the city of
Toronto 91,000.
An advertisement should be so arranged that the first glance conveys
the idea.
The exposure to all sorts and conditions of weather that a lumberman is
called upon to endure iu the camps
often produces severe colds which, if
not promptly checked, result In congestion or pneumonia. Mr. J. 0.
Davenport, ex manager of the Fort
Bragg Redwood Co., un immense institution ut Fort Bragg, Cal., says they
sell large quantities of Chamberlain's
Cough Remedy at the Company's store
and tbat he has himself used this remedy for a severe cold and obtained immediate relief. This medicine prevents
uny tendency of a cold toward pneumonia and insures a prompt recovery.

The Port Steals Kail Bobbed---very letter
in the Hail Deitroyad.
The Fort Steele mall was robbed at
Wasa, ou   Sunday  morning between
the hours of 12 and 4 a. in.   The letter
sack, was   enclosed in  a  large sack
which the robber carried into the brush
about 300   yards   from   the   waggon
where it was ripped open and the letter
sack taken away by the robber,   He
was trailed to Fort Steele, and captured within six hours from the time  he
done the robbing,     Tbe robber proved
to be Alexander M Leitch who has resided nt Fort Steele for some  months,
His record is not what   it  should be
and if reports are true, he has  turned
several tricks that would place him behind the bars.     Suspicion was turned
towards Leitch on account of several
forgeries that have been committed, as
was supposed by him also the breaking into a building and robbing a till,
he has been suspected  of committing
these acts though  nothing could  be
proved; we ulso learn   that   he   was
cuught tapping a till nt Wasa.     Constable Barnes has been watching bim
for some time, and in 20 minutes after
the arrival of tho stage  hud  captured
his man, and recovered 91,100 supp ised
to have been stolen from the mail.
About 1 o'clock on Saturday night
he broke into the stable of Charles Levett, saddled and stole a   horse,   and
went to Wusa, he succeeded in getting
the mail pouch, returned to Fort Steele
und turned the horse loose,  took the
mail pouch to  his  house   and   went
through the suck and   letters   ut   his
leisure,   enjoying   a   cotufartuble tire
supplied by the letters stolen,  and ns
is supposed, getting the sum of 91,000
in cash, destroying every  letter  that
was in the pouch after gettiug what
money they contrined.     The officers
upon searching his house  found  the
iron attachments to the mail suck in a
stove in which everything wus burned,
ulso a watch that was in a registered
package.   Two weeks ago Leitch went
to Wasa ou Friday which is   the day
tbe mail arrives tliere, aud the supposition is thut the opportunity did uot
ocour (or the successful taking of the
mail suck.    A lnrge sum of money has
been expected on the lute mails, whicli
did not arrive, parties have been closing several mining deals and one directed that 91,000 iu cash  be sent hiin,
this is probably the money taken from
tbe prisoner.  SavernI cheques amounting to four or  five thousand dollars
should also have been on this mail, also money aud oheques to other parties
in all it is estimated thut about six to
eight thousand dollars iu cinques and
money were in the mail. It. is probable
that all the cheques ure destroyed. The
loss will be trilling us the cheq.es cun
be replaced.     This is the first time in
the history of the district that an attempt has been made tc rob. the mail,
and the efficient manner in which the
robber was capture.! is highlv  to the
credit   of   constables   Edwards  and

A Victim to Cold Chllla. Violent H'uiui-
neheaaud Palpitation oi'the II. art-
Three Months Mitt leal Treat meiit
Vailed to Help Hlm,
There are few troubles which result
more' disastrouly to health than un attack of la grippe The patient may
recover from its immediate effects, but
it nevertheless too ' frequently leaves
behind it a wrecked constitution.
Among those who have suffered severely from ils baneful effects is Mr, Harry
Dagg, a well known fanner who lives
eight miles south of Ninga, Manitoba.
It was when la grippe swept over this
country in a fierce epidemic during the
spring of 1893 that Mr. Dragg's trouble
���t began. The disease left him a victim
to cold chills, violent headaches and
dizziness, accompanied at times by
severe palpitation of the heart. Mr.
Pragg went to Boissevnin to consult n
doctor, who told him that the trouble
was liable to develop into consumption
and advised him to uiscontimie all
work. For about three months he remained under the doctor's care, but
instead of getting better was gradually
growing weaker, and had become so
run down that the slightest exertion
would completely use him up. At this
stage a neighbor handed him a pamphlet advertising Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills, and after reading a number of
the testimonials he determined to give
the pills a trial,   He felt that his case
' was critical, and wisely decided that
the merits of the Pink PiUs should be
thoroughly tern-..), so he procured a
dosen boxes After tukin-- the third
box he says titer, was no doubt in his
mind that they were helping him, aud
even the -litr.hr improvement noticeable
gave him fresh courage. He continued
taking the pills throughout the winter
o. 1K94 ami when spring wns come ln's
health was completely restored, und
he was as strong and vigorous as lie
had ever been, and (ram. that time forward he has enjoyed the ln~_i of heult'li.
Mr, Dragg states that liu still uses 1 In-
Pink Pills in spring and full us ti topio
und always feels the better lor their
use, and he is certain if others will
follow his example there would he less
sickness and suffering throughout the
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills strike nt
the root of tbe disease, driving it from
the system and restoring the patient io
health and strength. In cases of paralysis, spinal troubles, locomotor ataxia
sciatica, rheumatism, erysipelas, scrofulous troubles, etc, these pills are
superior to all other treatment. They
���re also a specific for the troubles
whioh makes the lives of so many

���oiler Staff Inadequate for ���ncfmene
Area la Distress,   .
Kaipur, Feb. 2.���Tbe correspondent
of the Associated Press who ia inquiring into the famine iu this, tbs largest
distriot of the Central province, having
a population of 1,500,000, finds the
situation very grave. This is tbs centre of the rice-growing industry, which
is the only orop grown, and ss it hss
failed, there is a total extinction of
foodstuff in this locality, and real
famine exists. About 1,300 villages
are affected, and 5,000 persons are employed on relief works. Ths worst
part of the district is the.Dbarmi.para,
80 miles from here, where lamentable
conditions prevail. Many people bsvs
already lost their lives in tbs struggle
with hunger, and many others, are
dying. The staff employed in tbe
work of relieving tbe sufferers is inadequate for the enormous area. If
Ibe work of relief had been properly
arranged earlier, the mortality would
bave been knur, as ths rains are Increasing the spread of ths disease snd
it will take three good years to recoup
the losses io this distriot. The poor-
bouses are a tait criterion of  ths con*
- dition of the people. Besides the pro*
fsssioual beggars, they are crowded
wfth laborers, reduced to the lsst
stage ot skeletons. Their stomachs
���re hollow, aud the skin is hanging in
largo folds. Other* have -.vollt-u
stomachs, a sign of acute privation.
It is found that tbe esttitnucn snd
ryots, or field workers, usuuily laity
men. are unable to do anything, snd
tbs womsn are in the same condition.
Ths dols of food is only enough to
kssp body snd soul together. It does
not suffice to build up the system
���gain. This is where private charities are wanted. This is ths worst
distriot yet seen, snd it is in argent
need of funds. But tbs correspondent
bears thst tbe Jubbulpors district Is
worse. If seed is not sown people will
be utterly incapable of procuring food,
���nd ths conditions nsxt year will bs
too ���wful to oontemplste. The Gov-
srnmsnt was lata in realising ths situation.     Earlier measures would bsvs
��� prevented much of ths distress exist-.

Golden wss represented at the 3rd
Annual Bonspiel of the Calgary Curling Club by the following rinks:
F. H. Bacon, C. A. Warren, W. Mo*
Nsish, H. G. Parson, skip.
'  T. Todd, J. Lamontagn, D. M. Rae,
J. Rae. skip.
G. S. McCarter. J. Todd, G. Wood-
ley, P. White, skip.
There were 19 rinks competing in
the Bonspiel, 8 Calgary rinks and 11
T.slting rinks, which were ss follows:
Goldsn 8, Edmonton 8, Fish Creek 3,
Sbeep Creek 2, Innisfsil 1.
The Bonspiel opened on Tuesdsy,
January 26th, ths following is a record
of play of esob of the Golden rinks:
parson's rink
Un Wednesday morning this rink
met Hunter of Sheep Creek in tbe
Wslkerville snd defeated him bv 1
point, tbe score being 15 to 14. Ia the
sscoad draw of this competition Parson
was not quits so successful, being vanquished by Oowsstt of Calgary after a
most exciting gsme, tbs score being a
tie on tbe 14th . end; in the play off
Dowsstt scored two points lesving the
gsms 14 to 12. Tbs result of this
gsme put Parson out of tbs Walker-
villa competition.
On Wednesday evening Parson was
defeated by Klnnisten of Calgary by 8
to 17 in tbe McNeill competition.
In the third event, the Bannerman
A Critobley competition, Parson again
met Hunter of Sbeep Creek defeating
him by 1 point the score being 14 to
13. In the second draw Parson defeated Johuson of Calgary 20 to 11.
This put the Golden riuk in the semifinal ; in the' next gime however Parson suffered defeat at the bands of
Laudar of Edmonton, the score being
14 to 8.
Person still had a show for 3rd
place in tbis cuiupetition having to
pisy off with Walker of Calgary. He
was however knocked out by 3 points,
lbs score being 12 to 15.
In tbe Visitors' Trophy Parson met
and defeated Vance of Edmonton by 12
' In the semi-final be met Douglas ot
Inhisfail aud was again victorious
winning by a score of 12 to ll. In ths
final Parson met Aird of Fish Creek
and after an Uphill gams won first
place ia this competition by 14 to 9.
Tbe trophy is uow on exhibition at
the Big Store and is a veiy haudsome
cup, the design being a set of
brooms crosssd surmounted by a our*
Hug stone. In sddition to tbe trophy
tbe indivudal members of the rink
were esob -.resented witb a gold watch
white's rink
wss defeated by 4 points, score 14 to 10
In the Wslkerville first round he
met snd defeated Turner of Sheer Creek
to the tuns of 19 to 7.
In the second however hs had a hard
row to hoe against Dowsstt of Calgary
who again defeated him; the score wss
a tie on the 13th end but on the last
end Dowsett added 2 to his score,
winning the game by 14 to 12.
In the Bannerman A Critchley competition Rae put up a great game
againat Kinnisten's rink���which is
said to be the crack rink of Calgary-
defeating him by a score of 15 to 9.
The victory was a most popular one
and at the conclusion of ths gams the
Golden rink waa cheered to the echo.
In tbe second round Rae met Walker
oi Calgary and was defeated by a score
of 14 to 9.
In tbe Visitors' Rae was knocked
out in the 1st round by Aird of Fish
Creek, losing by 8 points, score 12 to 9.
Taking tbem altogether the Golden
rinks made a very creditable showing
in the Bonspiel and are very well satisfied with themselves, and no doubt
Golden will be well represented at the
next Calgary bonspiel; it is their in
tention however to practice the knockout game in order to cope with aome
rinks whom they bad the misfortune
to be defeated by owing to tbeir deficiency in tbat style of play.
Spiice will not permit us to give an
account of the banquet which was
held at the Queen's hotel, suffice it to
ssy that it was a grand success.
During .their stay in Calgary the
boys were royally treated and the Calgary bonspiel will be talked of for
time to come, and next year's bonspiel
will be looked, torwsrd to with interest.
