The Hutcheson vs.
Ladysmith Case
The Nanaimo Free Press has a
lengthy account of the case of Hutcheson vs. the Olty ot LacVysroith,
Which came, belore His Honor Judge
Harrison last Wednesday. The Free
Press has considerably more than
transpired ln the Court, and the report cannot be said to be an absolutely correct statement oi thetfacts.
In the meantime it would not be justice to the litigants to. enter into
this phase of tho matter. Briefly
stated, the record of tbe case before
the court is about as follows:
' This action came on for trial on
tbe 28th instant at 1 p. m. No evidence was given by either side, the
gone Into. This was due^the fact
merits, of the case in no way being
tbat the documents were not tauten
out in the proper manner. Counsel
on behalc of the City pointed out
that the summons was sealed with
the seal of the County Court of Ladysmith, and be therefore raised the
follow objections:
1. That the summons was bad; as
by virtue of section 75 of the County
Court Act every summons beforVtho
court, should be authenticated with
the seal of that court. The act expressly provides. that this shall • be
done and a non-compliance with tbe
statutory requirements, would be absolutely fatal. Section 75 of tbe. Act
reads aa follows: "All summonses
and other processes Issuing out of
the County Court shall be sealed or
stamped with the seal of the Court,"
and the summons before tbe court
did not bear its seal.
2. That the case Bhould, not .be adjudicated upon by the judge as the
documents bore tbe seal of another
court, that is the seal of the County
, Court of Ladysmith, nnd tbe documents therefore formed a part ot the
record of that court.
3. Tbat the summons hnd never issued from the County Court ot Nanaimo as by virtue of Order XL Ruie
10 it should have been sealed, Rule
10 reading: "Before any summons,
writ, judgment summons, warrant,
order or Judgment or decree is Issued by the registrar, the same shall

Thursday's lacrosse game resulted
ln a win for the local team, the.score
being four goals to one. The spectators were treated to the best exhibition of the national game yet
played in this city. While there was
no sensational or brilliant Individual
play, both teams wor'ted well and
furnished* a good game in which thero'
was never an idle moment. Mr. Jos.
Smith refcreed the game to the satisfaction of everybody'and had the
game well in hand at all times. Tht
hall was faced off a few minutes lat>
er than the appointed time and was
secured by Extension. A foul on
Taylor caused it to be again drawn.
This time Ladysmith got possession
of the ball and took it down to the
Extension net, but lost it there. For
some minutes the rubber travelled
from end to end, a Ladysmith man
securing it and shooting after a nice
run. In the second quarter the play
was fast 'but no goals were scored in
this period. The, third quarter was
the best of the game, the play being
at all times fast, Ladysmith' scoring
early in the game. The ball was
faced off; Fisher securing, passed to
McKelvie, who in turn sent it over
to Moore, who scored 15 seconds after the face-off. Extension also
scored ono in this quarter, their only tally. The last quarter was also
fast the Bphere travelling Irom one
end to the other, Wcing Anally netted
tor Ladysmith just as the whistle
Wlcw for time. For tbo visitors Tay)
lor was thc star, Ross and Lukio also were thero ut all time and did
much to koep the score down. Loat
and Kenny McKenzie played a good
game. For the home team Morris,,
Moore and Fisher wcre the best men
on the field, while Oow tn goal was
applauded time after timo for his
brilliant stops.

"The term 'rebel,' as applied to

Mackenzie himself admitted that he
had erred, hut we need not take the
despairing apology of an exile as tho
tinftl verdict of history. There can
be no doubt about the grievous maladministration of Upper Canada, and'
the hopelessness of the Constitutional arrangement with Britain. The
question Is, would reform have come
by pacific racano? On the whole, wa,
agree with tho authcr of this book
that Mackenzie was justified by necessity. It was tbe rebellion in Canada wbich brought out Lord Durham,
and, even after his report, it was
many years before grievances were
finally remedied. In time, no doubt,'
reform would have come, but men
can not be expected to wait all tbeir
lives on tbe processes of time. Mackenzie without doubt was a great
patriot, and he suffered greatly.—Ottawa Free Press.

Do Reform Schools
Reform Boys?
Hundreds oi boys fill our refoima-
tarics all over the country, and the
question that some ol our leading'
men ask is, "What shall we do with
them 'when they are turned loose?
How shall we place them in a position to earn a good honest living?"
It is a puzzle. It is a hard question
to answer. It has been well said
that it is a great deal easier to prevent crime than to relorm the criminal. And il tbe early education ol
one-ball ol the boys who fill our institutions were not neglected tbey
would not be there, says a writer in
tho Boston Transcript.
I have, met hundreds ol man in dil-/
lerent prisons who have all sprung
from these minor institutions. II I
-had a body I would try all kinds ol
methods before I would send him to
one of these Institutions, because if
sent there be mingles with hundreds
of other boys, some a great deal
older, and in time becomes thoroughly corrupt. Take any Ijpy at a certain age and you can mould him,
you can develop his moral character,
and you can form certain traits in
that boy that will bring out pure,
true manhood in time to come.
Coming down Washington street
one evening last winter, I saw a
crowd of boys numbering about seventy-five standing in line waiting for
one ot the cheap theatres to open.
Some ol theBe little fellows were
half-clad. I saw quite a few whose
shoes were in a very bad state. There
they stood shivering in the cold,
waiting' to get a cheap seat in this
theatre. The play was of the blood
and thunder sort, where there was
much shooting, whero tho hero kills
a number of men, a sort of border
bandit. Now this is demoralizing to
youth, and a great manT ol tBese
boys are led into crime by witnessing such scenes.
Some of these boys will do anything to get money to get into one
of these cheap shows. Lots of young
criminals can be found here, where
they get a sort of inspiration that
helps them on their, downward career.
We should havo more boys* clubs
In Boston, good clean places ol
amusement where the best in a boy
can afi brought out, whero his moral
training can bo taken in hand by
good, competent teachers, and thoso
traits formed in him that will make
his atter lite a blessing Instead ot a
We have only one or two places
In Boston where anything Is being
done for this kind ot boy, and 'we
should have more, for we surely need
them. Trace the history of the hardened criminal and you will flnd, nine
times out ot ten, that tho fault lay
in bis early life. I speak from experience. I was raised a child of the
street, brought up in a boarding
house, and at the age bf fourteen saw
things tbat would appal a man ot
forty. If I saw any money lying
around I took it. Thero was no
restraining hand to stop.me j The only hard part of it was, it I got
caught there was no moral fear.
It la a pitiful. sight to see a boy
brought into court by a big, strong
policeman. It does not, Beom**to havo'
the element ot kindness in It that' Is
going to save the boy. And again,
it will always be a standing (question
whether those reformatories do the
work they claim. If a boy will not
be guided by a good mother or a
good lather, then something has to
he done. I have suggested tho Am
irlcan navy. It they will not take
the wayward boy, then of course tho
only solution la the reform school. I
do not' mean to say that some of
these institutions do not help aljjreat'
many boys and In some cases make
thorough reformation. But I do
say that a number ol boys who have
been Inmates of theso institutions do
not reform, and I have met quite a
number. I do not know the reason
why, but I would suggest that while
they are In these institutions it Is
well worth trying the great  element
of kindness, tempered with discipline,
working on the moral nature of the
boy. It may sometimes seem hopeless, but in the end, may lie a huge
Let me cite one instance oi a case
that I know to be absolutely true.
Quite a number of" years ago two
boys were arrested in Boston for
breaking and entering a store in the
West End and stealing a, lot ot stun*
tbat was ot absolutely no value. One
ol these boys had a good home, good
surroundings, had been well raised.
His people were quite wealthy. The
other boy bad no home, was a child
of the streets. Both of his parents were dead and be was stopping
here, there or anywhere. Both were
convicted.at the crime. One boy had
friends, who interceded for him, and
as a sort of mild punishment he was
sent to a private institution whore
bis board was paid and he was kept
there for some time. The other boy,
who had no friends and no one to
intercede for him, was sent to tbe
house of correction at South BoBton
for two years. And right here a
strange thing happened. Tbe boy
who went to the private institution
came out after a while a great deal
worse than when he went in. His
parents sent him off to the country,
that he might do Borne good. But
the seed was sown. He went from
bad to worse. Nobody could do anything with him. He was soon arrested for a daring robbery and received a sentence of thrco years in
state's prison. After he came out ho
continued his lite of crime and soon
became a professional thief. He
went all over the country, did time
in throe or four of the western prisons and today is doing a life sentence in Auburn penitentiary for
bank robbery and murder,
And what became of the other
boy? Just the opposite. He served
his tim in the house ol correction,
and while there the chaplain became
Interested in him, saw some good
qualities ln the boy, Iound out something ol his early life and saw that
be was simply a victim of circumstances, more sinned against than
sinning. He got him a good home
With a certain business man in Boston, who sent him/ to school, and alter a time gave blm a responsible
position in bis employ. The lad
worked faithfully for some years an<<!
today is one ot tho partners ln that
firm and one of the leading men ln
business circles here ln Boston.
Strange story, is lt not? One boy
having everything that be wanted;
the other boy a street wait. Still
the boy who had everything became
a hardened criminal, and the other
boy, who had been cast upon the
street, who had no home, no triends,
na soon as the opportunity opened,
when someone., became kindly intert
ested in him, when be knew he had a
friend, branched out into good, cleani
honest manhood. There was something lacking In the first boy, and I
think It could be traced to heredity.
I think it was the sins ol the lather
visited on the children; I think there
was something in his parents' early
lito. There is a wise saying and a
true one, that ns you live your lito
clean and wholesome, keoplng awny
from dirt, doing unto others as you
would that they should do unto you,
wise in all things, 'your boy will coma*
pretty near going the same way.
This may not be true always, but on
the whole I think lt is well worth
the French and the British. "They arc
under a government atapad to whici
colli the strains acknowledge lull
loyalty, which has exhibited a great
wisdom iu its treatment ol the Bo-
minion, and in giving to thc Dominion a practical and most complete
autonomy. The bond between them
and the Mother, country is sweet but
light, and there is nothing that prevents tho indulging on the part ot
each whether French or British in
thc traditional pride of race of each.
"Now thoy aro going on; they are
building railroads; thoy aro exercising great discretion, and tbey are
taking away from us many of our
best farmers who aro in search of
rich wheat fields in the West. All
these things, if we adopted a shortsighted policy, would perhaps arouse
in us a jealousy and a desire to
prevent a growth on their part that
we might regard as a competitor af
ours. That I think is a most short
sighted policy, Tbey cannot have a
prosperity that wo cannot and must
not share. And we cannot have a
prosperity on our side tbat they will
not derive a benefit from. Therefore,
each may look upon the growth ol
the other with entire complacency,
and with an earnest desire. that the
ideals and ambitions tbat they have
formed may be carried to fruition
and I am glad to feel, from a national standpoint, that these celebrations, these memorials, are a
permanent step forward in bringing
about the union of feeling and sentiment and neighborhood effect that
ought to be encouraged between those
two great powers of the North American continent."

Vermont, on July 8, President Taft
made a kindly and notable reference
to the Dominion ol Canada. In tho

Celebrated Murders
for Insurance
Murders in which tho criminal bas
sought to profit by insuring his victim's life, as did BaBson, tho Cape
murderer, who killed himselt on thc
discovery ot his last victim, are recorded in, the criminal annnls of all
countries. Fortunately tor society,1
tho existence ot tho motive speedily
brings its own sequel In the arrest
and conviction of the murderer.
Ono of the earliest and most notorious ct insurance criminals, says
lho London Daily Mall, was Thomas
Griffiths Walnewright. Friend and
companion ot the artists and litterateurs of the day of Charles Lamb,
Walnewright was prompted, to crime
by the reckless manner ln which ho
lived. His flrst known crime was
forgery, In. those days punishable Jby
death, Having made himselt liable
to the penalty, Wainowright killed
his uncle, bis mother-in-law and finally his sister-in-law, whoso lite he
had Insured for £18,000.
None of these crimes was brought
to his account, but Insurance companies refusing on other grounds to
pay the sum due, Walnewright took
alarm and fled to France. Here he
undoubtedly poisoned a friend wbose
life he had insured, but again ' escaped for lack of- direct evidence.
With consummate impudence he.now
returned to England and began an
action against tho companies for the
recovery of the £18,000. Accused ot
forgery, ho was tried, convicted, and
sentenced to penal servitude In the
year 1836. He died, unhanged, In tho
year 1852.
The trial ol Palmer, "the Itugeley
poisoner," In 185G, brought to light
an amazing series of crimes, all having the acquisition of woalth as their
motive. Among thoso who died suddenly and mysteriously alter being In
tbo company ol,Palmer .were hiu own
father, his lathor-ln-law, hio lour
children, his wife, brother, and a din-
soluto young man named Cook. The
murder ol his children brought Palmer nearer to the realization ot the
lortune Inherited by their mother.
Beloro ho killed his wilo Palmer insured hcr for ,615,000, which" was paid
by the companies. In the case ot his
brother, ho effected Insurances to tho
value of £13,000, but the companies
refused his application (or the sum,
nnd tho application was not renewed, Atter palmer was hanged lt
was discovered that he had endeavored to Insure his groom tor £26,000
and had suggested to tho postmaster
of Rugeley that he should insure
himselt for £5,000.
T'nited States the murder for Insurance holds a recognized-place. One of
tho most astonishing of the early
crimes was the Goss-Udderzook case.
In this famous affair the crime originated in a scheme lor the defrauding of insurance companies by thc
substitution of a dead body lor an
insured man.
In 1872 W. S. Gosb, a Baltimore
man, was reported to havo been
burned to death in a lonely cottage,
ln wbich he was supposed to conduct
experiments in rubber making. Tbe
defaced body was identified by his
wife, his brother, and his brother-in-
law, Uddcrzook. Actually, Goss was
hiding in a small village in Pennsylvania. Suspecting fraud, the insurance companies refused to pay the
sum of £6,000 for which Goss was
insured. An action was brought by
the "widow," and to the amazement
ot every one the conspirators won
the case.
The successful verdict sealed tbe
fate of tbe hapless Goss. Before a
week had elapsed Udderzook, fearing
the enraged insurance companies,
went down to the little village, tool;
Gobs for a drive and shot him mercilessly. The discovery of the body
a week later was followed by the arrest and conviction of Udderzook,
who was hanged, protesting himself
a "victim" of the insurance companies.
In all these cases the only motive
was a desire to obtain insurance
money. So, too, when Bernard Har-
tung, a supposedly wealthy Madge-
burg merchant, killed two persons;
when Mrs. Vander Linden, of Ley-
den, confessed to the killing of sixteen, and when tho Liverpool sisters
were put on trial in 1884 tor killing
four persons.
In every country tbero have been
theso calculated crimes. India ba.l
the Fonseca case in 1895, Prussia tho
Bock esse in the same year, and
France tho notorious caso of Mine.

Ah, sportsman, cruel sportsmanl
You have pierced my body through.
What harm might I ask tbee
Have I ever, done to you,
That you came from lands far distant
Over miles of trackless foam.
To slay me in the wild woods
Of my free New Brunswick home?
Ah, sportsman, cruel sportsman,
You have laid my body low
In this deep secluded thicket
Where I've wandered to and fro.
My body's on the brushwood,
My head lies on a stone
'Neath the birch and tapering cedars
Of my free New Brunswick home.
When you heard me you allured me
By that low deceptive call.
Then you lay for me in ambush
To pierce me with a ball,
Your cruel aim was certain,
It tore through flesh and bone,
And my life's blood stains the brushwood
Of my free New Brunswick homo.
Thy heart iu far moro cruel
Than that ancient tyrant lamed,
Who history tells us fiddled
While the Roman city flamed.
The only voice of sympathy
That answers to my moan
Is tho breeze that stirs tho foliage
Of my free New Brunswick homo.
Now my short career( is ending,
I soon will bo cold in death,
Perhaps an hour at tbe farthest
I will draw my final breath.
Though monarch of the forest
I am lett to die alone
'Neath the spruce and tapering cedars
Of my dear New Brunswick home..
When my eyes shall close forever
Where my helpless body fell
'Midst the brush   and tangled wild-
Of this deep secluded dell,
You might place this short inscription
On this rough and ragged stone:
I was murdered by an alien
In my tree New Brunswick home."

Naval officers do not always mete
out to the men the punishments laid
down in tbe King's regulations. They
Ir fluently adopt punishments ol their
own invention which prove most ot
iective in preventing the recurrence
of offenses. These punishments are
otten of a very curious and even ludicrous nature.
It is an everyday occurrence to see
half a dozen sailors lined up on deck

mocks on their shoulders and their
laces presenting a most woeful picture. For this punishment is not so
trivial as it appears, says London

A Yale Professor on
"Tendencies of Drama"
Protessor William Ii. Fholps, ol
Yalo University, lectured recently nt
tho Art Museum, Springfield, Muss.,
on "Tendencies ol the Drama," und
matters running in the mind ot so
distinguished an educator on this stih.i
ject as record!: d by thc Springfield
Republican, are worthy ol attention.
Professor Phelps, on the whole is
an optimist as to thc theatre. Ho
says he sees much to commend on
the stage today as well as ground
for hope that great things are in
storo fcr its future followers. The
last twenty-five years, to his mind,
has seen the production of more and
better dramas than any other twenty-five years sinco the last of the
Elizabethan drama in 1642. He regards several of the recent plays
that have won attention as beautiful
nnd bearing the marks ot the great
drama without being perhaps, Quite
literature. He notes how immeasurably behind France and Germany this
country is in the opportunities afforded to see good drama, and indicates how close to the national education and theatre.in those countries
is. He says that the so-called musical comedy is an excrescence ' which
reached its climax about 1903, and ia
falling ofl. He even thinks that there
is a chance* tu revive tho comic operas ot Gi-'jert and Sullivan.
Vaudeville causes Professor Phelps
little uneasiness, and its popularity
he thinks may have, an important effect on the regular drama. It tends
to force the drama to make a moro
characteristic and definite appeal
than that mado,by the variety*ahow,'
which aims simply to entertain with
out making any mental effort necessary. This tends to draw moro
-.bar-ply the lino between thc two.
The drama has suffered bccaimc pco
pie have been inclined to think that,
like vaudeville, it was intended only
to amuse. The turning of many novelists and men who have achioved dls
tinction in other arts of thc drama
Frofessor Phelps regards as significant. The publishing of plays which
thc copyright law has made so general is another development that he
thinks augurs well ior the drama.
The influence of Ibsen, he believes,
is the greatest of all modern influences. Professor Phelps says that
thero is otten too much scenery in
the modern drama. Adequate scenery is desirable but too much doos
not stimulate   the Imagination.    On
the contrary, it debases it. Thc
Puritan could worship in a barn, nou
because they were without Imagination, but because they had an imagination that showed them thc glory
of the saint, though they did worship in a barn. Too much scenery
leaves too little for the imagination
to do. There is mischief for the -good1
of tho drama in the witing of a play
for one actor, Prof. Phelps contends,
and be deplores a controlling commercialism in the, drama, for art of
all things must go free, lie said
lhat thc riso in prices tends to hurt
the drama;, lor some reason God has
not given tho majority; of intellectual
people a 1-aJJgc amount of lnonoy.'.The
dramatization of the novel Frofessor
Phelps regards, as debasing and with
no better reason behind it than the
making of actors out of prize-fighters. He believes It the duty of every cne to find out something about
dramatic art, to.be thus made better
able to appreciate it.
Most of the stone marbles used by
boys are made in Germany. The refuse only of the marble and agate
quarries is employed, and this is
treated in such a way tbat there is
practically no waste.
Men and boys are employed to
break tho refuse stone into small
cubes, and with their hammers they
acquire a remarkable dexterity. The
little cubes are then thrown into a
mill consisting ot a grooved bedstone and a revolving runner. Water
is fed to tho mill and tbe runner is
rapidly revolved, while the trlction

In half an hour the mill is stopped
