very long out of jail, jo having been

Ho drifted into town on Saturday,
and went to Mr. Trenbath, tho manager of the Big Store. His story
was that he belonged to tho Victoria detective force, and that he had
beon rushed away in a hurry by
Chief Langley in chase of a man
who had stolon a horse, and rig.
He had telegraphed Chiof Langley
for funds and tho latter had directed
hlm to apply to Simon & Leiser &

was such that tho manager of the
store advanced htm a sum of money on an order upon Chief Langloy,

Kino Year Old Boy Killed by a Kick
From a Horse.
The danger of little boys playing
around.where there aro horses was
painfully demonstrated in the sod
accident on Monday evening, whereby little nine-yoar-old Steve Mras
lost his life. Stove's older brother
had taken a horse belonging to Mr.
P. Magrosky to graze on the grounds
of the Catholic church, Steve
compauied his brother and whilo
playing round approached too near
the horse which lashed out at the
boys. One of the Hying ironshod
hoofs caught tho little follow right
on the base oi the skull, and tho
fluttering of Ids heart when picked
up 'was tho only evidence of life. Ue

William Brown and the doctor sont

The match cunie off, and Bruce
went riuht after his man. For fifteen minutes there seemed to be only one man in it. Then came a
change. Sandy began to hold his
own nnd Bruce wns forced into defensive work,-and in the end defeated. Sandy's frionds regnrded it as
a decisive victory, achieved by superior stamina, and this opinion
they ure still ready to back.
Bruce himself, and all his backers,
were anything but satisfied with tho
result. Bruce's falling off they;
ascribed to n strained muscle, and
c rtainly there looked to bo some-
thing more ailing him than a mere

secution ia too revolting for the Ca-L
tholic to use against the Churchman'
for the Churchman to apply to   the
Puritan, for. the latter to turn upon
both.     Truth is made to prevail by
any and every available means, and
after all it is only the truth as the
sectarian sees it.
We have risen abovo the barbarism
of. earlier methods, but the various
moral reform societies seem to see
no other remedies for prevailing evils
than thoso which are to be found in
repressive legislation, and if they
had the power thoy would cram th&ir
opinions down the throats of all and
sundry at tho end of the constable's
baton. Too little is left to tlie influence of oducution, to the power of
public opinion. Not so vory long
ago the nobility of England wero
notorious for their wine-bibbliiig.
Temperance and' abstemiousness wero
counted more ol a disgrace than
drunkenness and dissipation. , Political leaders of thc first degree have
takon their seats in the house, one
of them unable to see the Speaker,
and the others unablo to blink away
the sight of two whore there should
have been one. What has changed
these conditions and traditions? Nothing but a chiingo ln opinion. That
infinitely more ennnot be done by
the snnifi influences and done better
than by the invocation of tho law, it
seems idle to deny.
Another issue raisod is the rights
of the Individual. The sight of
drunkenness on a Sunday is not
pleasant, and there Is no getting Byway from the fact that the Sunday
trade ln Ladysmith has passed beyond all reasonable bounds. Yet it
should be remembered that for every one man that gets intoxicated,
there -re a hundred who, while taking a drink, keep themselves straight.
Would it not be better to provide
penalties for tho ono mnn, who got
drunk, and for the man who supplied
him with tho drink to make him
drunk, rather than to take awtty
from a hundred men a right which
is inalienably, theirs? The whole question should be carefully considered
Tho tendency of the day is to drive
to legislation for a remedy for ev-

■Montreal, June 20— Sir Gilbert
Parker, who loft this morning for
Bellev"- -,, expressed the opinion that
the British government would appeal to the country in two years and
there might be a change.
I think there is no doubt but
that the Socialist and Labor Party
are not able to make any headway,
and who can therefore forsee the result."
A by-law wus introduced at Monday night's meeting of the Council
which, if it pusses in its entirety,
.will assuredly raise better feelings
,n a large section of the community.
The by-law, which was brought in
by Aid. Matheson, is virtually
copy of that recently adopted in
Victoria, ami which there caused
such a storm in the licensing trade.
Not only does tho proposed measure
provide for tlie strict regulation ol
iho liquor trailic in licensed premises
in the town, but it imposes drastic
changes in the hours of closing
tlie bar-rooms.
Of ull the provisions, clause 7, regulating the opening and closing of
the bar-rooms, will cause most opposition, it enacts that the bars
shall be closed ull day on Sundays,
up to i a.m. on the Monday morning. The hotol keeper is thus specifically prevented from opening out
the bur after midnight on Sundays.
Uvery bur again is to be closed up
ai 11 o'clock, on Saturday evenings,
and on overy other day during the
.week at Iii o'clock midnight.' (Old

MONTREAL, June 20.- The Empress of Ireland, by tieing up at her

TORONTO, June 20—Finding them
selves with revolvers and dirks to
retain possession of the cars ln
which they had been living, some 85
laborers defied the officials of the 0.
P. K. to eject them, after they had
been discharged for refusing to go
to work.
The trouble started at Woodbridgt
and was brought to a termination
ln tha C.P.B. yardi at North Toronto. The police had to be called
to suppress the troubls. The Italians claim thoy quit work, because
the C.P.lt. refused td accede to the
demand for an advance In wages but
the company .declares that tha men
made no formal demand to ths

Special Correspondence,
OTTAWA, June 18.-7-By way of economy the Government is cutting
down the working staff. Mr. Stan
Held, of Colchester, points out that
the engineers have been laid off or
made firemen, firemen have been dla*
charged, conductors and brakemen
laid off and ordinary hands dismissed, causing privation and suffering.
But there is no reduction in the
staff of petty officials. On the con
trarjr, places on ths official staff are
always found for politicians and
their friends. So while the Intercolonial "wages" bill may be slightly reduced, the "salary account''
grows turgor.
A Minister's   Son-in-Law.

concerning bis contracts with thc

Dominion Arsenal from a firm in
Pawtucket, U.S., the following;
In January, 1005, the firm offered the machines at a quoted price.
The Government did not buy.
In February Mr. Macoun, having
learned of the negotiations, wrote
to the firm asking to be appointed
their agent. The appointment was

Department as agent for the Pawtucket firm repeating thoir offer.

Mr. Macoun was paid five  per cent
commission, or $310.    '
This ia a Secret.
So much ia stated by Mr, Macoun
himself and by the officials. One
thing Mr. Macoun refused to disclose. He absolutely refuses to produce a copy of his letter applying for
the agency. He claimed that thia
was private. Though he is not
ticent about other personal matters
(for he produced without being ask.
ed for it, a detailed account of Sir
Fred. Borden's Journeylngs through
out Canada during several weeks)
this letter could not be got out of
him. Chairman Flnleyson and the
Government obstructors supported
the refusal. Mr. McLean and Mr.
Carvell furiously attacked Mr. Croc
fleet for . intimating that the letter
might ahow whether Mr, Macoun informed tho firm lhat his appointment
would gl-c tbem a Government contract at their own price.
Yet. Mr. Macoun stated that the
above contract was all tho business

Paid  In  Advance.
Aa to the $70,000 copper contract,
Mr. Macoun admitted that he got

goods were tested or even delivered.

this vote with that for the Militia

get all other votes which require discussion and have not been explained.
So every man who had to wait for

rushed off. to the Ontario election
campaign and told the people., that
the Opposition waa refusing pay to

kicked on th* head by a hon* In

prefect nt Palermo, nnd in that year
ol tho revolution ho tried to restore
the kingdom of the two Sicilies to
the house of Bourbon,
This revolution wus ferocious, neither giving nor accepting quarter.
The triumphant .population committed most abominnble excesses. Human butcher shops were opened In
the publlc squnres, where the flesh
of the Italian carbineers killed at
the barricades was sold for noxt to
Rudini rlsVod popularity In order
to save Italian unity. He directed
the suppression ot the revolt with a
firmness that bordered on cruelty.
The revolution was crushed anil Italian unity escaped the peril of dismemberment, which had threatened
it for nn Instnnt. But for many
yenrs tho remembrance of this bloody
nnd morolleea suppression weighed
heavily on Signor Rudlnl's reputation.

Coast noar Santa Barbara to awntt
tho arrival ol .the British steamship
Pinna, undor charter by tho Japanese line, Toyo Kison Kaisha, Irom
Yokohama, to carry oil.
lt io understood among revenue ol-
flcors who permit themselves to whisper of tho cnso that a cable from the
spoclal agont of tho government nt
Yokohama saying that tho steamer
has contraband opium and silk and
soveral Japanese coolies aboard, is
tho reason for the nction of tho govornmont and that a revenue cutter
will be sont to Gaviota later to await developments.
The Pinna is chartered to carry oil.
It was reported whon she last landed
at tho lonely-spot that soveral Japanese without papers had boen put

clear from Gavlola is a' mystery and
tho collector of tho port of Los An-

SEATTLE, Wash., June 17,
"When I determined to close the
tlnnco halls ih the Tanana, country, 1
was told that some of the people
wouldn't stand for it," said Judge
II.,Reid, of Fairbanks, this morning.
"Well, I hnd expected something of
tho kind, but I know better than to
liullove tho dance hall men w.iuld
long resist the processes of tho federal court. So when I told i he prosecuting attorney to closo up tho
places on the ground that tliny wtuo
nuisances, I oxpocted tho order
would bo obeyed, evon if it did throw
a lot of women out of ;obs. Tho
change was, aftor all, made easily,
and quickly, and. I believe tho danco
hall in Alaska's mining camps isfor-
ovor gono."
, Judgo Rold, old-tiino Alask ills sny,
is regarded in tho North as s 'mo-
thing of a judicial wond6r, for they
reason that the danco hall was an
established institution ol lho iiining
camps, Tho old-timers assert that
if six months ago anyono had suggested thnt tho courts would closo
tho resorts, tho suggestion would
have boon received with ridicule
Evory mining camp and ovon tho
crook settlomonts in tho Yukon territory, Klondike district and on tho
Const and tho Nome country as well

In tho only form ot nmiiseiuent they
"I hnd not boon long in Aluska boforo I mnde up my mind that tho
dunce hall was- a nuisunco," said

women employed in theso places
made moro money at tho end of the
soason thun tho minors had earned tn
wages. I told tho grand Jury al
Fairbanks that I thought tho matter was one for it to Investigate.
When they reported in favor of tho
suspension of tho danco halls, I immediately ordered them to close up.
It wns not such a difficult thing to
do, after all.
"Tho dance hall ot Alaska, oven
although it had been an institution
native to the country sinco tho beginning of mining thero, is now gone
forever, in my judgment. Ono man
in Fairbanks came to me and said
thnt while It would moan that his
rent income of $7,500 a year from
ills property would be entirely cut
off, yot ho believed in tho law and
that if I ordered tho danco halls
closed he would cheerfully obey.

I heard of one man who said that
