ing of the watch, chain, and locket
among some old rubbish underneath
tho houso. No trace was found of
tho money, however, and it was given up as lost.
No further evidence was obtainod
against tho Chiimmnn, and tlio Magistrates were obliged to dismiss the
case when it came before them for
the second timo on Wednesday evening.
Now conies tho soquol as surprising as it was unexpected. The suspected Chinaman was not, of course,
allowed to re-enter thc house; but be
turnod up onrly in the morning and
wns chased out. Air. Frame, as it
happened, did not go out to work,
aud about six o'clock heard some
one come into the room. He asked
who was there, but receive'! no reply and whoever it was immediately
wont out again. Jt was the China-
He was seen to* descend the

About 8 o'clock Mr. Frnino g\)t up
to dress and on l)okiu-,p out observed Mr, Chinaman standing; in ibo

up at tho house ami down tho street
aud finally moved off in tho direction of the Post Dillcj. Ho aguin reappeared a minute later .ind when
opposite the hall door of the Temperance houso.made a clean bolt for
the stairs. Howovor, ho was seen by
tho waitress, who called < ut after
him as he raced up tho stairs, Ho
wus clearly making again for Mr.
Frame's room, and it was .leci led to
hold Mr. Chinaman until a search
had been made.
The room was thoroughly overhauled, but it began to look as if
the missing treasure was not going
to be found. Success enmo at the
very last moment. The searchers
ended with the washstand. Thero
wus nothing elso loft to investigate.

FRISCO MAN ESCAPES BOMB.
OAKLAND, April 28.-An attempt
•sua made on the life of J. L. Gallagher, one of the main witnesses
for the prosecution in the San Francisco bribery cases, last night at the
home of Wm. S. Scbeneck, his brother-in-law, at the corner of East
Twentieth street aud Nineteenth avenue, east Oakland, when a huge
bomb placed in the porch exploded
and tore away the whole front of
the house. Galagher was upstairs
with his wife at the time, and Mr.
Scheneck was in a rear room with
his wife and four'children, nnd Dr.
Guy Brown. All escaped except a
boy who woe hit in the neck by

was pierced by a missle. The residence was wrecked.
Gallagher wos a member of the

TWO CLEAR ISSUES.
It ls to bo hoped tha*. there will
be no confounding of issues on tho
ballot -which is shortly to be taken
on the now electric light by-law.
There are many people who believe
tbat even more necessary to tho
town thun lights is u sewerage system. And we ure nut sure that
theso citizens are not right. From
many points of view it could have
been wished that thc movement for
a sewer had taken precedence over
that for a lighting system. Tho
Council itself was elected on both issues, with every member of tho
Bogrd pledged to work for and as
fur as ho could, further both projects. But, as it has happened, the
question of lights has come first, or,
to bo precise, has matured for action before the other. The Council
ure even now busy with thc subject
of a sewerage system, and shouldered tho responsibility uf engaging an
engineering expert ut a cost of 9400
to prepare levels for the main pipelines, together with an estimate of
the cost. —
Meantime a movement hud been ou
foot for the furtherance of the lighting scheme. As a result a petition
was presented to the Council, praying for the introduction of a by-law
Tho Council could only do as tbey
were requested to do, having regard
to the public pledges on which thoy
took office. The by-law, which is
now betore tho voters, was prepared
in accordance with the will and
-wishes of the petitioners who represented a large und Influential section
of the ratepayers. Alderman McKinnell, on Tuesday evening, (and he
was spooking for more than himself) wished that the presentation of
the by-law to tho property-owners
for tbeir ballot could havo been delayed. He took lho ground first
that the city stood in greater need
of a sewerage system than of electric lights, ulthough ho admitted the
necessity of tho latter and had. always beon in favor of having them.
Again he argued that if both bylaws had been introduced togethor,
and referred to the voters at tho
same time, the ono would havo carried tho other through. His tear

As an odd coincidence thla is the

Aid. McKinnell may be right, but
we don't agree with him. If the citizens who signed the petition presented to the Council vote as they
at that time felt, the by-law will
carry easy enough. If they don't,
then they themselves are to blamo
for the exponse incurred on carrying
out their plainly expressed wishes.
But there is anothor point, the point
wo started out to mako, which
should be carefully considered. It is
this. Whilo a citizen may hold the
conviction that the sewer by-law
should have como first that Is no
reason in Itself why: he should vote
down the lighting proposition. The
sewerage system is no further off because tho city decides It shall have
lights. Tbe adoption ur a lighting
system dues nut mean thnt thero
shall not be a sewer. The ono dues
not affect the other, Rather we
think It will be exactly the revcrso.
Block the lighting system and the
sowor proposition will almost inevitably be rejected. Adopt the new bylaw, and the sewer will follow It in
a few weeks. The two issues should
not be confused. Deal with oach on
its own merits, nnd tho adoption of
both Is assured. Judge them, togethor and vote on any consideration
of balance and priority and wo shall
' have neither lights nor sewers.

EVERY ORGAN OF BODY OUT OP

Heart,    Kidneys   and Other Organs
Scattered About Body in Unbelievable Ways.
BALTIMORE, Md., April 22,-Sur-
goons in John Hopkins hospital during an uutoipsy 0n tho body of Judge
McKelghan, of St. Louis, wero
tonished to discover that instead ol
tho usual sotting of the organs,
those in the body were scattered a-
bout in unbelievable ways. His
heart was turned in a position the
reverse ol normal, his kldneye wore
united by a ligament in the shape
of a horseshoe, and the liver waB
upside down with the gall bladder on
top. Many of the smaller organs
were a chaos ot entangling cords
nnd fatty substances.
How tho Judge lived with such
strange transposition in his body,
appears marvelous. Surgeons are
mlstificd at it. Whether ho wns born
with his organs In abnormal positions, or tbey -were put in this state
by some freak of nature, is not
known. Judge McKelghan lived to
lie 80 years old, and was considered
one of the ablest lawyers of the
United States. Hia brain did not
seem to suffer from the state of his
organs, and ho was able to eat
heartily until within a fow weeks
of March 1, when -he was brought to
the John Hopkins hospital in a critical condition. He bad become seriously ill in St. Louis in February,
and hfs. physicians were quite unable to fathom his symptoms. Ho
wob finally brought hore where an
operation was performed, during
which discoveries wcre made of such
a startling nature that the family
consented to the autopsy, which wus
performed shortly after death.

TORONTO, April 22.-In welcoming tho Ontario Educational Association to tho city last night, Minister of Education Payne, announced
that the movement was going forward to Improve the text books of

attendance at the convention this
year was very large.
$125,000 FOR   E.   & N.  RAILWAY
LUPROVKM.H1NTS
. Victoria,. April 22. — One hundred
and twenty-five thousand dollars will
Lo spent this summer in improving
and modernizing the seventy eight
miles or roadbed ' of tho E. & N.
railway between hero and Ntinuimu,
and tliis work will start at once and
■ bo rushed to completion as fast as
'possible. This is the Important uu-
| nou'ucemqnt that was made yester-
^luy mbt'ilfng by one of tlie promin-
, ont officials of tho E. &j N. railway.
it was announced yesterday that in
tlie estimates that had been approved by the president of the company,
Sir Thomas Shaughncssy, in tho
large appropriations that had boen
brought down fur tho present year
und passed by the board of directors of tho C.P.R. was tho item
containing tho appropriation of
S125.000 for this part of the system.
Tho greater part of this outlay
will bo oxpoudod upon tho improvement of tho roadbed und particularly upon lhat part of tho line whero
wooden structures are used in crossing streams, the intention being to
replace these with permanent stool
structures. Tho larger part of this
improvement will take placo at tho
other ond of tho line and most of it
between Ludysmith aud Nanaimo although much work will be done in
building now bridges across tho Chemainus uud Cowichan rivers.
Ou this part of tho work, new
Btouo piei's will be built aud stool
bridges will supplant the present
wooilen structures. Then ubout a
utile un this side of Ladysinith tho
present obsolete crib work will i>o
torn down und replaced by a largo
urch to cross the stream that flows
into Oyster Hay at this point.
The replacing of tho old wooden
bridges by thu modern ones will
only bo made this year whero the
bridges aro found to bo most In
wunt of repair and thoso that fmio
lately boen constructed .will be tho
lust ones on tho lino to be removed.
Another important move that tho
company has decided to moke will
ho iu the building of new fences
along tho line and in this matter it
is stated that not less than forty
miles of new fencing will bo constructed during tho season. For this
improvement alono somo §20,000 has
been submitted and approved by tho
directorate, This fencing will bo
used this season whoro tho country
is most settled and whoro any stock
kept by tho settlors in the vicinity. It is understood however, that
the company will eventually fence in
tho entire length of tho road, although it will be impossible to do
all of this work during thu present
summer.

Austrian government ls convinced of
