The Fall Sitting Opened at Donald on
Monday, Ootober 25th-.Two Oa...
Agaln.t one Mun-A Light Senteuee.
(Before His Lordship Judge McColl.)
The quarterly assise ot the Supreme
Court was held at Donald as above.
The following were sworn in as the
Orand Jury: J. Hart, J. McGiunii,
T. Baker, T. Forrest, W. S. Ruttan,
J, Edwards, J. Lee, C. Buinos, A. E.
Colpitis, W. A. Walker, J. .McRae,
W. Newman, J. Gilmour, 8. H. Bolton,   Ur. Baker was elected foreman.
His Lordship said there wero only two
oases to be heard against a man named
John Vandell, who was a prisoner and
attempted to break away, and while
doing so he rather seriously assaulted
some of the officials. Tbey would
have to enquire into this matter and
if they found there was c charge to
oome befoie the Petty Jury they would
bring in a true bill.
The Grand Jury later returned a
true bill against the prisoner Vandell
on both charges. The jury delivered
the following presentment:
We the Orand Jury, take tbis op-1
portunity ot welcoming .our Lordship
to Donald once more and also to con
gratulate you ou the lightness of the
docket at this session of the Court of
We beg to inform. Your Lordship
that we have, according to custom, inspected the Donald gaol and the premises thereto, and found them in excellent condition.
We find that its a matter of congratulation to all to know that oar dis.
trict is so orderly and so ably administered.
His Lordship thankel the jury for
their kind references to himself and
said he would forward the presentment to the proper quarter.
John Vandell was oharged witb
having broken prison at Oolden.
Acoused pleaded "not guilty"
The following common jury- was
H. Parson, A. S. Vye, i. H. Dunn,
J. Lansdell, W. Clark',, F. Whuley,
H. Williams, M. Otto, J. Jonergan,
J. Cullen, T. llrundett, H. B. Moodie
and W. Avery were challenged and
bad to atand aside.
T. H. Dunne was elected foreman.
Mr White, as Crown Prosecutor, explained to the jury Ihe circumstances
of the case and called tbe following
F. C. Lsng, constable, gavo evidence as to sending ont W. C. Miller as
special constable to McLaughlin's
camp to arrest acoused on a warrant.
Prisoner was brought in and asked
for bail. Witness promised to esk
Mr. Warren, J.P. to come down when
he sent bin supper. He did so and on
Mr. Warren coming in accused gave
him a number of names. Mr. Warren, not approving these, told prls .ue,
he would stop there. Witness aske>
hiin several times to return to his
cell, but he replied he wss going to
get out, and came forward. Witness,
who had him by the collar, tripped
him on the corridor to put him back.
Prisoner then jumped up and struck
witness in the face. He then attacked Mr. Warren and apparently endeavored to choke bim. Witness then
struck accused with his button. Mr.
Warren called to witness to strike
him on the head, which witness did.
Prisoner struck at witness, and getting his heed down tried to cbew his
neck with bis teeth. Wi.iiess go,
clear. Prisoner then said he would
show what clubbing was, snd made
for the woodpile. Prisoner picked up
a chair, but witness managed to trip
bim, and he and Mr. Warren held
him down. They endeavored to put
the prisoner back in his cell,
but in tbeir endeavor to do
so broke the bar of the door. They
had to leave him there and looked the
outer door. Prisoner bad evidently
been under the influence of drink.
Prisoner: Did I try to hit yon?
Witness:  Tee.
Prisoner: Did I try to break goal'
Witness: Tee, as I hare described it.
0. A. Warren said he was a Justice
of the Peace and want to the goal to
see the prisoner about bail. Prisoner
gave him three names whioh he did
not coneider sufficient, Prisoner said he
was going np town to see these people himself. Witness told him he
eonld not do tbat. Witness turned
���way, and the next thing he knew
wu  that the prisoner was on the
Kund. Prisoner then got witness
tnd the door and he called on the
oonstabls to hit hlm. Prisoner sub
sequently struek and kicked at witness, bat did not hit him. Prisoner
got down and they held him tbere,
end tried tc piece him in a cell, hut
oo.ld not manege tt. They then shut
the outer door and left him there.
To Hli Lordship: Prisoner had been
in the priion about half an hour when
this occurred.
Prisoner said he was arrested by
Mr. Miller, wbo told 'him he wonld
get bell, and then appear ! before the
conrt and be fined. He wanted < o see
Mr. Warren about it as hi passed the
store, bnt meeting Mr. Lang there he
instsled   on his going down  tb the
lock-up. He had been drinking but
knew what he was doing, Lang came
down wilh Warren a short time after.
They opened the door, culled him up,
and he stood with hli bsck against
tbe wail. He talked to Mr Warren
about getting bail, He ashed Mr,
Warren how much bail he wanted and
he replied 1200. Prisoner said if they
would loosen him up he would get it.
He gave Mr. Warren several names
and he said they wero not reliable
enough. Prisoner then ashed to go up
to see these people but they told him
thac he must stop there. Lang tried
to choke him, and then ho
hit him, and hard too. Tho
next thing was another man got hold
ol him and he was hit on tha head
with a club. He made n couple of
kicks at Warren. He got another
blow with a club which sent him
staggering. To stop himself he caught a
chuir, when he got another blow.
They both jumped on him and held
him till he got his senses. He was
hit again and knocked into the cell.
He put his feet into the door. They
pressed the door against him and they
oould not get his feet out. Thoy
clubbed him on the feet. Ho hnd uo
more intention of breaking goal than
he had of bteakiog from there that
day. He knew he was going to get it
hot tbere. If he had wanted io get
dot of the goal he could hava walked
out of it, but he did not want to go
out of Ihis country as he was making
good money here.
The Crown Prosecutor said that
even if they did not find him guilty of
breaking goal, tbey mnst at leant
find him guilty of nn attempt to do
eo. Accused from his own statements
brought tbis trouble on himself. Tho
ooustalilo did nothing more than ho
was called upon to do.
His Lordship said this wai a very
simple case. It was an offence for a
man to break goal. It would be a
very difficult thing to get constables
if every constable was to be exposed
lo osinult without tho protection of
of the law. Thsy had heard the story
of Lsng, who occupied the important
position of Recorder, and also of the
Justice and the prisoner and it was lor
them to say which they believed. If
thty believed Lang und Warren tlio
prisoner attempted to get out and was
reckless as to tlie means he adopted.
It was a miraa-ilous thing that neither
of rhese men was killed, and it was
very fortunate that none of these men
had been injured more. Tbat prisoner
assaulted these two men there was uo
doubt. The only reason appeared to
be that prisoner was angry with
Warren for not accepting the sureties
offered. He had been drinking hut admitted that ha knew what he was
about. It was not Mr. Warren's duty
to go there at all, but a kindness on
his part. The proper course when a
man wae arrested, waa to hold him
till ho could be brought before a magistrate, so that he did not seom to
have any reason for coojuring up a
grievance against Warren. The law
required a Justice not to accept bail
unless he was satisfied that the sureties were good enough for the money.
Tbey found a very serious assault on
the magistrate and on the constable
and the only reason tbat had been
suggested for this was lhat it was
brought about by tho desire of the
prisoner to escape.
The jury after a brief retirement,
brought in a verdict of "not guilty."
J. Vandell was then charged with
having assaulted F. C. Lang as a
constable while in the execution ot
his duty.
The following jury was empanelled:
P. Hooley, W. Lynos, U. W. Caldwell, R. Davis, J. Jarnsgan, R.
Bookhout, W. Williams, W. A.
Brown, J. Shaw, J. H. Lyons, J.
Atkinson, and J. Nelson. W. Caldwell
was appointed foremen.
W. Avery, H. R. Moodie.F. Jaynei,
A. Grainger aud C. E. Hamilton were
challenged by tho Crown.
Prisoner pleaded "nol guilty."
F. C. Lang gave evidence similar to
that In the previous case.
To tbe Crown Prosecutor: Witness
bled very much from the wounds in*
To tbe foreman: The prisoner was
under the influence of liquor.
To Hie Lordship: Tbe prisoner
knew perfectly what ha was about.
C. A. Warren also gave similar
evidence to that in the former ease.
He saw the blood streaming down Mr.
Lang's face end remarked to him "yoa
are bleeding like a pig."
To the foreman: Prisoner struck at
me but did not hit me. I saw him
-trike at Mr. Lang but did not see him
hit him.
To His Lordship: There wss no wsy
ia whioh Mr. Lang eonld havo been injured except by blows from the prisoner.
Prisoner also made a similar statement to hie previous one, bat said bej
hit Lang only once and tbat they tried
to kill htm.
The Crown Prosecutor then address
ed the jnry.
His Lordship summed up. Hc
said It was the duty of a consuble
to resirt an attempt at escape by force,
and if fores was used he wee bound to
use force to retain a prisoner, and even
to kill il necessary.     He considered

The news that the British Government has refused to aid the efforts
that have been made for the restoration of the free coinage of silver will
be received throughout the Empire
with feelings ot regret. We believe
we are im loyal to the traditions of
the Motherland as any, but when it
comos to the great powers of tho
nation lending themselves as tools to
the gold hugs of Lombard Street, it is
time for those who have studied this
problem to raise a warning voice. We
feel sure that it the British Government maintain a policy Which can
only bring ruination to many colonies
it roust load to the dismemberment
ot the Empire, and those great capital
ists who are using their power to this
end, that it may increase the value
and power of their gold, have a great
responsibility. The Australian Colonies
are large silver producers. Aust alians
have given this silver question a foremost place. India was alt along
a silver country so far as its currency
and hordes ot tho people went,until the
Government recently closed the mints
to protect British exports, nnd thereby
caused untold destitution. British
Columbia has a future that depends
more on silver than gold, and with its
immense mineral wealth this Province bears every evidence of becomiug
the great prospective market for tho
eastern producers. The silver qnestion
is as much a C.unidian question as a
Provincial one. Yet we And the Can
adian Banker's Association gave the
prosperity of this country one of the
most treacherous stabs in the dark
that could have bsen given. Withont
any publicity, so that ihe voice of the
people might have been raised in protest, this association secretly sent to
England endorsing all opposition to
bi-metallic measures. Let us hope
that the action was taken in Ignor-
ance.rather than from the point of view
tha the association should be a mere
tool of Lombard Street and a traitor
to Canada. We notice in the New
Denver I-edge an interview with Mr,
Clouston. General Manager of the
Bank of Montreal, and it will be a
fair proposition to take bis view as
that of the Banker's Association. Mr.
Clouston said: "Oh! free silver is a
practicable Impossibility; one of those
financial heresies that will come forward at times; something similar to
the system of finance which under
John Law made Frenoe rich for a
few yssrs in tha airly part of tha
eighteenth century." Now suob a
statement either shows gross ignorance on the part of the banker or also
an intention to deliberately mislead.
In Barclay's work on'The Silver Question and The Gold Question" there Is
a very complete table showing tbat
up to the demonetisation of silver by
Germany and tha United Slates in
1878. free silver waa a solid (aot,
and would hava bean till thia day,
but for Legislative interference and
the bribery and corruption of Lombard Street to bring about the demon
atisation of silver, Mr. Barclay gives
the faot in than words: "For
seventy yeara prior to 1874 (and for
an Indefinite time also before tha beginning of that period, thongh lass
perfectly) bi-metalllsm was practically
In force for all the purposes of international commerce." Mr. Clouston
than want on to ssy thst thay might
as well try to regulate the price of
wheat by act of Parliament aa to
gulate tha price of silver. Mr Clouston
must know, If hs knows anything,
that It is the law thai flies the price
ol fold at lhi> English mint, nnd that
gold conforms to that price all over
the world, It the price of gold oan |
be fixed by law, so can that of silver.
If the price of stiver, so the price of
wheat. If the law required the Dominion Government to give a certain
price for all wheat delivered at
Ottawa, the price of wheat would be
regulated thereby all the world over,
the only differences' being those caused
by the expense or difficulty of delivering wheat at Ottawa. We admit at
once, when Mr. Clouston came to
speak of the currency of this country,
that he expressed sound views and
doctrine, but we do not agree with
him when he aays that the currency
of this country is sufficient. We do
not think it is. The currency is ouly
$8 a head, wtiereas in the most prosperous periods of the world's history
it was 850 a head. If currency is
shor! it stagnates business and causes
commercial troubles. We have review
cd the position on this great question
at some length because of its immense
importance to this country, and we
hope it will cause those who have
not thought about it to do so. The
action of the Bank of England in endeavoring to bring silver back to the position it should hold as a monetary
metal, ought to meet with tho support
ot all the Empire. The Bank of England has as its guiding stars the
ablest financial men of our time, and
while it is fighting against the prejudices of the great gold bug capitalists
it is adopting a policy tbat will do
more than all else to consolidate the
Empire by bringing about a
stable condition of affairs commercially and financially. The Bank of England has always been a progressive institution. More than once it has come
to the rescue of the nation amid the
howls and ravings of the great capitalists, and its policy has proved in the
end to be'the right one. We believe today that the Bank has inaugurated a
movement which will be second in importance to none of the previous phases of its policy and we can only urge
those who may come within our
"sphere of influence" to do all they can
to atew public opinion along with the
advance guard of the bank in this
great reform, which will do more than
any present day problem to advance the
interests of the Empire ns a whole and
particularly of our own Province, so
richly endowed by nature with the
white metal.
The Canadian Bankers Association
has made a frightfully cheeky pro
poaal to the Government. It is that
the Government should permit the
banks to deposit their gold with
the Government and chat the
Government should pay them
three per cent Interest lor gold that it
doesn't want, and should give the
banks in exchange a note issue whieh
they could relend to the publio at interest also. The banks would thus draw
interest twice on the same money
first of all from tbe Government on
the gold and in the second place from
tha public on the notes which would
roprasont the same gold. We can conceive of no more despicable attempt to
rob the pnblic than this suggestion,
and we say at once that no honest
hanker would make such a proposs).
We admit tho system is in vogua in
the United States, but that it should
be adopted in that land of corruption
and bribery is no argument for its adoption in Canada. The people of tha
United States bave cried out long and
bitterly against tbe operation of suoh
an unjust system in tha States, and
that very outcry ought to be a warning to onr own Government. The
Canadian Government can get all the
gold it wants by operating a branoh of
Circulating Department of the Treas-
Tressury in tba Yukon, and buying th*
gold Irom tbe miners, giving them
Dominion currency in axchange, and
such gold would not cost tha Government a dollar in interest, or in fact
anything beyond tba cost of printing
the Dominion currenoy and managing
the circulation office. We confess wa
an utterly surprised at tba monstrosity of tha suggestion made by tha
Canadian Banker's Association.
The verdicts ot tba juries in the
oases heard at Donald on Monday were
very extraordinary. A prisoner makes
a oharnel house of tbe lock-up, assaults the constable and magistrate,
giving as his reason that he is not going to stay there. The constable Is
bound hy law not to let his prisoner
go, bnt to take his life if need be in
the attempt to keep him in sate custody. Yet in spite of these facts a
Donald jury says the prisoner neither
attempted to break gaol, nor injured a
oonstable in the discharge of his duty.
The foreman of one of the juries became counsel for the prisoner and, evi
dently with a view to proving that he
did not hit tbe constable, asked the
Justice whether the constable was not
wounded by falling, or whether be saw
the prisoner strike the oonstable, when
the defendant himself admited
that he hit him and "hit
him    hard    too." Such    were
the verdicts of Donald juries and their
methods of doing business The judge
made matters worse by blaming the
Justice for not going to the assistance
of the constable, whereas the constable
says that the Justice gave him all the
assistance in his power. As a matter
of fact a Justice has {nothing, to do
with the use of physical force, bu. is
rather enjoined against it. If tbis is
how justice is going to be administered
we shall find the men of the police
force who are any good resigning their
positions, as the salary is hardly
enough to cover the pounding which
Donald juries seemed to think they
should take quietly and even gratefully. No man witb any self respect
will act as Justice of tbe Peace under
similar circumstances. A man may
paint the town red and a Donald jury
may be sworn in to say he was "a
jolly good fellow." As an American
citizen said to us after these cases,
"Don't tnlk to us any more about 'the
administration of justice on the other
His Lordship Justice McColl is
evidently a mm who desires to dispense justice with the strictness fairness and impartality. The sentence
which he impose! on Vandell was
clearly a stricl application of the ver
die! of the jurr. As his Lordship
remarked, lie himself took a much
more serious view of the mutter and
so will the more intelligent section of
the public, but he did not allow that
to weigh in the judgement. From what
we have seeu of his Lordship's discharged his duties at the last two
sessions of the Supreme Court at
Donald we feel sure that in his appointment, although a recent one, the
Supreme Court Bench of British Columbia has secured a judge of great
ability, and of the strictest integrity
in his desire to administer justice with
an impartial hand.

A reporter recently called at tbis
famous seat of learning And was
shown into the room of the President,
Prof. Alvin P. Barnaby. When last
seen by the reporter Prof. Barnaby
was in delicate health. Today he was
apparently in the best of health. In response to nn enquiry the Professor
������Oh yes, I am much better than for
some time. I am now in perfect
health, but my recovery was brought
about in rather a peculiar way,"
"Tell me about it" said the reporter
"Well to begin at the beginning,"
said the professor, "I studied too
hard when at school, endeavoring
to educate myself for the profession.
After completing the common course I
came here, and graduated from the
theological course. I entered the ministry and accepted the charge of a
United Brethren church at a small
place in Kent County, Mioh, Being of
an ambitious nature I applied myself
diligently to my work and studies. In
time I noticed thnt. my health wns
failing, My trouble was indigestion,
and this wilh other troubles brought
on nervousness.
"My physician prescribed lor me for
some time, and advised me to try a
change of climate. I did as he requested and was aome improved. Sion
after I damn here as professor in physics and oheinistry, nnd later was fln-
aiicinl agent of this college. Thc
change   agreed   wi-.li. mc,   unil for a
bile my health, was better, but my
duties were heavy, and again I found
my trouble reluming. This time it
was more severe and in the winter I became completely prostrated. I
tried various medicines and different
physicians. Finally I was able to return to my duties. In tbe spring of
18981 was elected president of the
college. Again I had considerable
work, and the trouble, which had not
been entirely cured, began to affect me,
and last fall I collapsed. I had different doctors but none did me any good.
Professor Bowman who is professor
of natural science, to>d me of bis experience with Dr. Williams'. Pink
Pills for Pale people and urged me to
give them a trial, because they had
benefitted him in a similar case, and
I concluded to tiy them.
"The first box helped roe and the second gave great relief, such aa I had
never experienced from the treatment
of any physician. After nsing six
boxes of the medicine I was entirely
cured. Today I am perfectly well. I
feel better and stronger than for years.
I certainly recommend Dr. Williams'

and Great Care
Paine's     Celery    Compound
Should be used this Month
Our changeable Autumn weatb-r
brings fear to tbe hearts ot thousands
of rbeumatia sufferers who are unable
to go to warmer climes. The present
month with its wet, cold weather and
chilling northeast winds will, without
donbt, increase tbe agonies of those
wbo are afflicted with acute, chronio,
Inflammatory and sciatic rheumatism.
The uric acid in the system, which
the kidneys have not removed, is poisoning tha blood, causing stiff and
swollen joints, twisted legs, arms,
Angara, and contracted cords. When
it reaches the heart it generally proves
Rheumatic sufferers, why remain in
agony and peril? There is a sure
oure and n naw life for all if the proper agency is made use of, Paine's
Celery Compound has triumphantly
met hundreds of cases far more subtile
and dangerous than yours; it will
surely meet your troubles. It is for
you to determine this day whether you
shall be free from suffering and take
on a new life, or remain in a condition
of helplessness and torture that may
drag you to your grave at any time.
Bear in mind that Paine's Celery
Compound cures all forms of rheumatism, and does the work so well that
the disease never returns. Mrs. M, J.
Vince. of Barrie, Ont., says:
"I am happy to say that I have
taken Paine'a Celery Compound with
great results. I had sciatica so badly
that I could not turn in bed or walk
without help; and for a period of three
weeks was helplessly laid up and
suffered pain that was at times unbearable,
������I tried many medicines, but all tn
vain, I was afterwards recommended
to try Paine's Celery Compound. I
used six bottles, and am entirely cured
and enjoy good health. I take great
pleasure in recommending the valuable
medicine that cured me." 207

' A few weeks ago the editor was

dangerous he took immediate steps to
to bring about a speedy cure. From
the advertisement of Chamberlain's
Cough Remedv and the many good
recommendations included therein, we
concluded to make a first trial of tho
medicine. To say that it was satisfactory in its results, is potting it
very mildly, indeed. It acted like
magic and the result wasa speedy permanent cure. We bave no hesitancy
in recommending this excellent Cough
Remedy to anyone afflicted with a

Mr. Warren did not come to the assistance of the constable as he really

In the name of common sense what was
Lang to do under the circumstances?
Thev had either to accept the statement of Messrs. Warren and Lang as
to the assault, or else the prisoner's
statement that he acted as be did to
prevent himself being killed by Warren and Lang. The prisoner wounded
Mr. Lang, tbere was no doubt about
Tbe juiy returned a verdict of "common assault under great provocation."
His Lordship: I think I know what
you mean. It is practically a recommendation to mercy,
The foreman:   Yes.
In reply to his Lordship, prisoner
said his home was in Quebec. He
had been in Revelstoke this spring.
His Lordship: I took a more serious
view of the matter than the jury, who
evidently think that Warren and
Lang did not aot as reasonably as they
might have done. I shall adjourn the
court till tomorrow at 10 o'clock to
consider the matter.
On the court resuming on Tuesday
morning prisoner was asked if he
had anything to say why .entence
should not be passed upon him?
Prisoner replied that he should not
be sentenced, as they had tried to kill
him and he only acted in self defence.
His Lordship said he would caution
the prisoner to be careful of bis conduct in future. He waa liable to
two years imprisonment and be did
not know but what the prisoner deserved the full penalty of the law. He
would however take into consideration
the verdict of the jury, and would
sentence the prisoner to a month's imprisonment in Donald goal, to find
sureties in $200 to keep the peace for
12 months, and in default of his finding sureties that he should be sentenced to a further term of three months
