A boarding houso (Maputo was aired, in tho County Court on Wednesday oftornoon before His Honor
Judge Harrison. A boarder at the
Alton boarding houso refused to pay
his bill, clniming that ho had done
some work fur the Aliens, for which
ho had not been paid. After hearing tho evidence un< I being treated
to a roally wonderful example ,of
Finnish volubility from the landlady
in the caso, Judge Harrison gave'
judgment for thc Aliens for $20,00
and expenses.
A second case in which Mr. Jnmos
Hill sued a Mr. Stool, of Extension,

from tho Cecil Hotel was settled out

Hadn't you better take this amount, asked his honor?
I leave it your honor, replied Hill.
Sovon and a half nnd costs, was
the verdict,
Steel was hardly satisfied, and the
expeditious manner in which the case
had been handled had left him hoi
ther timo nor opportunity to protest. He made the mistake of protesting after judgment had been entered.
A man has no right to drink whiskey if ho cannot pay for it, Judge
Harrison remarked. Ho is a' very
small mnn who will first drink whiskey and then try to get out of paying for it.

Judge Harrison on Thursday morning with having obtained from Mr.

false pretences.
Judge Harrison explained to the
prisoner that he had the option of
two forms of trial. Either he could
have a trial by jury or he eould elect
to bo'tried summarily by tho judge
Clayton elected for tho latter form,
of trial and pleaded guilty, but Hinted he was in drink at the time *...;d

Judgo HarrlBon explained that unless he meant by that that ho was
insane through drink, it was no excuse for crime. He wonted to know
if he pleaded guilty to getting the
goods, and to getting them on a
false assertion that ho was a detective.
Clayton again stated that he was
in drink and could not recollect what
ho did say.
This was as much as Clayton
would admit, and this Judge Harrison construed us a plea of not guilty. His honor, therefore ordered the
trial to take placo Friday afternoon

Education, tho editor once heard
.IrJned us "tne art of forming men."
'. here is u great deal to be said for
the definition, and it is perhaps a.
compreheusive a au'-vey of tho function of education as such brevity
would permit. Of course there are
objections to every generalization,
and the one we have quoted is no
more free from them than any other.
However, tho definition may be accepted without demur in its broadest sense, and particularly inasmuch
as it omphasizes tho absolute necessity uf education in the making of
mon, it* vital importance to th* formation of character.
Tho point to which all thi* is by
way of preface, is how do wo regard
the iiueation locally? 'Do we look
upon education as the greatest of
all moulders of character? Do wo
regard it us the most valuable as-
Bet in youth's equipment for tho battle of life? Do we consider it aa
first and luat the one grout hope for
the material and moral progress of
this weary old world, the corrective
oi vice and social evil, the death of
greed and political corrupt; iu, and
the ono guarantee of un era of Justice and pract' -ai equality? It we
do, [hen we admit it is our first dn

that our young folks get the bout

get.    Aro we seeing tr that? We are
afraid not. The met has boon ,vns constantly attended by Dr. Oau-

the education they would like them
to hav*. No reflection is Intended
on such a* thoso, but there aro even

Grover Cleveland, twenty-*econd

the only Democratic occupant of the1
White Houso since the civil war, was
bom In Caldwell, Essex county, New

by a majority of 3,500, the largest

Buffalo by nn average ol majority of

soon became known a* ths "veto

that he deemed unwise, illegal or extravagant. The reform methods of

All the traits of assiduous Indus-

ed In Mr. Cleveland's early career,
were observable during his atay in
Albany. Hie phenomenal success
in ths gubernatorial election, as indicative of . the probability of his
carrying New York and of attracting the Independent vote, secured hlmi
the Democratic nomination for the
preeldency in 1884. It has been
■aid that Mr. Clovoland was a reluctant candidate. His friends had
many consultations with him on tho
subject, but he uniformly discouraged rather than favored the movement
It waa Mr. Manning, who served during part of Cleveland's first term aa

Mr. Cleveland's nomination. The
Democrat* had not elected a president since the success of the Republican Party ln I860. Mr. Cleveland
regarded th* contest a* doubtful at

round out a successful career with a
national defeat. Ho had never

disorders growing out of the great
railroad strike that centered In Chicago. But he had lost caste with
hla own party and the panic that
swept the country during his administration made him unpopular
with the people at large. Hence
there was no talk of his renomlna-

Cleveland retired to Princeton, N.J.

Should his invention be generally

for cutting timber. The principle is
an electrical wire for felling trees.
It is claimed for the invention that
the ordinary large timber can bo
felled in 16 minutes with a 1,000

very economical, it being claimed
that an 8-foot tree can be cut down
at an expense of 14 cents in a few
minutes. The idea of the invention

Tho Y.M.C.A. club of Victoria, III
the attitude it hutj takon up lir regard to tiie sports hero on jtomlnidh
Day, hna raisod In an acuta form the
question of amateurism. 1« effect
this club argues that because thoro
lire cnah prizes tho sports are undor
professional auspices and that, therefore, as amateurs, they cannot/take
any part lu thom,
. It scoins to mo that tho Y.M.C.A.
club is wrong on both counts. First
of all, I cannot soo how tho auspices
of nny sports mooting has anything
ut nll'to do with tho status of an
athloto. An amateur, evon a Y. M.
0, A. man, could run ut a mooting
promoted by tho club's bote nolr in
sport, Mr. Con .Junes, and so long
us he run in tho amateur cluaa, his
status could not bo nlToctod.
Purtlioi-moro, it is ■ straining a
point to argue that tho sports hero
will Iio hold undor professional aua-
pices. Tho money for tho Colebra- .
tion is subscribed by tho townspoo-
ltto and by outsiders who havo Interests in tho town. Tho monoy, it is
understood, ia to bo dovotod to promoting a day's sport for tho city.
In tho city thero aro all classes, and
tlio professional has ns much right
to consideration as the amateur.
Honco thoy aro cash prizes and value prizes, but, if ono can arguo that
the sports aro under professional aus
pices becauso thore aro cash prizos,
another might just ns woll arguo tho
contrary becauso thero nro value
prizes. Tho sports aro as thoy ought
to be.
As for the second argument of the ,
YfM.O.A. boys, namely, that as ama
lours thoy cannot compote at a meet
where cush prizes are oltored, I frankly confess to not being ablo to follow it. If courso, I must plead* ignorance of tho Canadian rules., governing tho status of nn amateur. In
all iny experience, howovor, all that
the aniatour hnd to do was to stick
to his class, and participate only iu
tho events for whioh thoro wero valuo prizos, I imagine that is all that-
is uocossnry inB . 0., but tho Vic-
toria boys havo token a different
view of it, and tho Celebration Cominittee finds Itself rathor badly loft.
The quostion hus boon token up In
both tho Victoria journals, nnd oach
of them gives tho club version as if
thoro wus nothing, more to ho said.
(Personally,    I nevor look for   oithor
"light or.loading" from tho sporting
writers of oithor tlio "Colonist" or
lho "Times," but ono would hnvo
thought thoro would have boon n
word of explanation ns to tho club's:
position, somo information as tc tho

wo aro loft to puzzle the matter out
for ourselves.

A proposal, which if accepted, will
enable the C.P.R. to have thousands
of acres ol rich agricultural land on
Vancouver Island cleared and made
ready for market at little expense,
and at the some time result in the
establishment of a new and Important industry on this coast, ha* been
made to the railway authorities by
R. H. Fulton, a Montreal capitalist.
Mr. Fulton ia now on the coast investigating the timber rosources of
the Island.
As Is well known, the railway authorities have for ovor a yoar been
attempting to make arrangements for
the clearing ot a large acreage, Every tender submitted wus so high
that it wa* impossible to have the
work don* at th* price* offered, and
be able to offer the land for sale to
settler* at reasonable figures. Since
the company refused to lot clearing
contracts on the basis of the bids
submitted, tt has been casting about
tor some other method of preparing
the lands for settlement.
Mr. Fulton'* plan, ao far as can
be learned, ls to establish on the Island a large plant for the extraction of turpentine from timber stand
,ng on the C.P.R. lands, and in order to obtain that timber at as low
a cost as possiblo, he offers to do
a certain amount ol clearing. The
turpentine plnnt would be tod with
timber, tho cost of which would be
the falling and hauling, plus ths expense of clearing certain portions ot
tracts of land, so that they would be
available for settlement. In thl*
way tho C.P.R. would have lt* land*
cleared for nothing and wouii only
b* giving away such of the standing
timber as would be of use in the
manufacture ot turpentine.
In former land clearing proposals
ot tha O.F.R., It wa* Intend*! that
th* land should be divided Into 20-
