case of ex-poliec officer Wm. St. Thompson, who shot nnd killed ('has. Rosen-
beck, a young coal yard employee, on the
night ef December 0th, for interfering
while Thompson was ill-treating o disreputable woman. The attorney for the
defendant then outlined a theory of
defence to thc jury to the effect that
Thompson fired the fatal shot in self-
defence, and that being interfered with
as an officer, he used such means as he
was provided by law to resist the attack
made upon him liy the deceased. Counsel admitted that Thompson was ofl duty
and very drunk when he fired his pistol.

NEWSPAPERS.
There arc newspapers and ni wtpapert.
. This sentence maybe somewhat chest-
nutty, nevertheless il Is true, it may be
snid that people know all about the true
value of a newspaper, but they  do  not.
' To some, all newspapers are alike, so long
os .they have fourpages, so mo reading mat-
tor and—advertisements. They do not appreciate tho contents, thov think not at
,ill of Its Influeuco nor th t amouni of its
subscription list, it is n newspaper, and
one is as goo 1 as another, and all of thorn
might bO a great deal heller. This Is perhaps true in pari, but, the discriminating
man expends his monoy where there is
the best chanco foi nn adequate return
tor the money invested. Thc man who
subscribes to a paper expects to get the
worth of his money, and tho advertiser
does not advertise, simply for the sake of
encouraging his home journal. He ex-
peels some reward for tlie money he invests in printer's ink, and il is right that
he should. Ho expects a return for his
capital. But there aro plenty who want
all, and who will give nothing in return,
and they imagine that a newspaper is a
bloated bondholder; thoy seem to think
that it possesses the famed philosopher's
stone, and everything it touches, turns lo
gold. They therefore expect their work
done for absolutely nothing, and we regret
to ."late that pari oi the press cater to their
expectations. That same povlion however,
is without the pale of legitimate journalism, il does not live, it only exists. It
does not believe in a "lairday's wage for
a fair day's work," and by methods known
only to those of that ilk, it secures a certain hold upon  the  public  through  its
. very—cheapness. Influence it has none,
aims il has none, save only the eking out
of a miserable existence, contemned by
man and scorned by its contemporaries.
Such sheets exist, wo aro sorry to say.
The press ol British Columbia will however, for honor, Uprightness, and fraternity stands pre-eminent. As far as our
acquaintance goes these journals or the
great majority of them' are a credit to
their constituencies, and for enterprise,
pluck ond energy, discount those oi the
effete East. Our newspapers are
generously Kiipporc.'d by the citizens oi their respective localities.
In regard to newspapers, their influence
and objects, it may be said that thoy have
no prescriptive rights. It cannot be
denied, however, that a newspaper cannot live on air or empty promises—a
politician may; but strange as it may
seem to the uninitiated, a newspaper has
.1 stomach and must be fed. It is not a
Pit. Tanner, md cannot fust for forty
days without sustenance. Neither can it
lie run for glory. A good paper is entitled to and should receivo the support
of its constituency, It ;s an exponent
of thc views of the people; it is the
champion and the guardian Of Iheir privileges; it Bounds the note ol warning; it
hoists thc danger signal. It is the conservator of human liberties and the
rights of (ho people, From a small beginning) from tlie weakly insignificance
of an a'most barbaric infancy the newspaper has progressed steadily, grown
powerful, und to-day it stands foremost
among the institutions of the universe.
It has proved itself worthy of the support
which it receives from the world, its
[lower good ever increases, and thc good
work it has done In the past will be but a
lithe of that which the future has in reserve for it.
failure to attend regularly is not due to
any misconduct on their part. Whatever is practical to secure their attendance, even irregularly, in larger numbers
and to encourage in them the desire to
learn, should be done.
EDITORIAL  NOTES.
Ir Stanley can be Induced to forsake
his American allegiance and become an
Englishman for the sake of promised
honors it will be a great disappointment
to the world. Brave and truly great
men need neither titles nor decorations.
Tennyson was never sn small, as since
he became a peer.
There is no longer any question in the
minds of the enlightened educators concerning the great value of industrial training as an element in any symmetrical
culture nf tho young, whatever station
in society the pupil may occupy.
It has of ton be Baid thai an Indefinite
number of signers may be obtained tor
any petition, no matter how absurd or
Improper, most people signing almost
everything that   comes to  thorn "as n
personal favor," and the cases are many
where the same person has signed two
petitions iu direct conflict with each other.
Countess Orosy, a lady of tho Austrian
nobility, and one ol tlie finest horsewomen in Europe, has become a circus
manager. She lately inherited fl fortune
of a million gulden, and has built an enormous circus building at Vienna. She
hopes to take her troupe to Ibe Paris Exposition and exhibit it. Herpoculhvr fad
is encouraged by ber friends, who admire her originality and vigor.
Destiny, while il onthralls and defines
individual ability and therefore lias its
reflex on the individual life, has nol so
much to do with the happiness or unhnp-
piness of man. Our content or discontent is esoteric; that is, it proceeds outward from tho action ot the spirit within.
It. is Independent oi our surroundings.
This much we know, Unit happiness is
nol tho creature of power, nor honor, nor
knowledge, nor wealth alone. Happiness
seldom finds a placo on the throne or in
tho mansion. It is of tenor found In tho
cottage "f the jioor. Where you find content there you will find happiness as
near as it can exist iu this world. No
matter whether clothed in velvet or rags:
no mailer whether tho man has Mends
or none—if he is content, is cheerful and
happy. It 's a simple thing to be content and cheerful. A little discipline will
make you so. it comes hy introspection.
Tho contented man need not envy tho
emperor in tho glory nf unbounded
power, lie need not envy tho scholar.
He need not envy the rich. Tho noblest
gospel which ecu be preached to mankind Is the gospel oi contentment. Destiny, however it may enthrall us in other
respects, cannot deprive us of Ihis. We
are masters of the situation. Take whal
is your lot ;'i life without a liiU'nnir.
Thai is Ihe text of this gospel. Fortune
n iv come to you when you least expect
it, or il may never come. OlNClNATOS

UNGRADED SCHOOL ROOMS.
The present method of grading In tho
public schools is the outgrowth of expe-
rienep and is believed by many oducntors
to be more conducive to the general
progress oi tho uverogo scholar than any
other plan which is ol practical application, Classes ni" necessarily bo largo
that special attention cannot be paid to
Individual pupils, and asoheme ofrogii'
Int work 1 ■ th. reforo marmod out, in
which teachers and pupil- mil t conform,
Tin idea bos latterly gained ground—il
is, indeed, but tho adaptation oi an old
idea to modern school development—
Unit grading pupils in each study accord-
big In Iheir proficiency therein Is belter
calculated to facilitate progrct thnn li
grading hv general avoragOB, The plan
has been tried i" nconi idcrablo extent In
some cities, with gratifying results ; and
if it have the Buperior merits which Its
advocates claim for it, it will, in the
course of lime, no doubt, become general.
While this question of grading ir' deserving of earnest thought by those upon
whom devolv the management and supervision of the Bchoola, there is, in con-
noption with it, another which also needs
to be taken into serious consideration, especially in largo cities. There are in
such cities ninny children who, from
force of circumstances, enn only attend
school nt intervals. They cannot go regularly and cannot keep up with the class
work. Doubtless many of thorn wholly
cease attendance because they feel
ashamed to appear backward and do not
relish Lcing grouped, with pupils much
younger than themselves.
Thc question is vphethev the schools
make suitable provision foi what might
be termed the "occnsionals." We do
not refer to the vicious or unruly, for
whoso special benefit tho ungraded school
has been  provided, but to those whoso

gratulfttlng you upon the wide-spread reputation this justly esteemed medicine, Dr. J,
Collis ..rowne's Chlorodyne, has earned for
itself, not only in ITindostan, but all over
the East. As a remedy of general utility,
we much question whether a l>etler is im-
potted into the country, and wc shall be
glad to hear of its finding a place in every
Anglo-Indian home. The other brands, we
are happy lo say, are now relegated to thc
native luuaars, and judging from their salct
we fancy their sojurn there will be but
evanescent. We could multiply instances

the more terrible forms of Cholera itself, w
have witnessed Its controlling power. We
have never used *.ny other form of this
medicine than Collis Browne's, from a firm
conviction that it is decidedly thc best, and
also from a sense of duty we owe to the pro]
fession antl thc public, as wc ire of thc
opinion tnat the substitution of any other

Just at dusk last evening persons walk-

shouts ol "pull it through, foul, foul, &c."
Quite a little crowd gathered together and
it was discovered that two ol our local
sports had been engaged in an impromtu

with hands down, as his opponent stopped rowing. Only two boat loads of people were out to witness the contest.

The corporation workmen have been
employed laving the new sidewalk on

to the usefulness of that road. Cornish-

We are verv sorry to hear that Mrs.
R. Whitfield is at present in a very critical condition. She has been confined to

placed the estimable lady in n very precarious state. We hope however, that she

more than a temporary fence.
Coal Found nt Vancouver.
' I 'In sinking a well for the Vancouver
Lumber Company on Saturday, the contractors struck a thin vein ol coal at a

by the Government last year to report on
the coal formation of that district, predicted that coal would lie found there.

Dr. Walkem's residence at East Wellington will also be connected this week,
which will prove a great convenience to
many of our citizens who have frequently
required his medical assistance but had
been unable to obtain it on account ol the
distance and lack of speedy communication.
The Courier ofllco will also join the
throng in this respect in a few days.

Nanaimo is to have another band. This
time it is to be composed ol riles and

instructor, and will no doubt be able to
fill the bill. The membership already
amounts to fifteen and there is room for
more. The members are very enthusiastic and say they will be sufficiently organized to have a street parade on the
Queen's birtbdav. The first practice will
be held in the I. 0. G. T. Hall next Friday night. Nanaimo is not going to be

Mr. Chamberlain goes to Tacoma, W. T.,
where he will bo engaged in holding

nnd the fervent good wishes of all will go
with him to his new field of labor, and
many warm frionda will welcome his return to Wellington, where he has proved
himself a firm friend and a faithful and
devoted pastor.
'Ihe < hluc s, Question.
A mass meeting of working men was
held nt Vancouver on Saturday night to
condemn the policy followed by many
employers of labor in this province in
giving employment Chinese, when t hero
are so many white men and boys seeking
work and literally starving.   W. Macey
made some very telling remarks relative
to the question at issue,   lie stated that
he had seen a boy picking pieces of bread
and broken meat from a swill barrel, and
when asked thc reason of it, the boy said
he was hungry and his father was out of
work.    Mr. Macey said the only remedy
for this state ol ail'airs was the total exclusion of the Chinese.   Wc in Nanaimo
have done a great deal towards solving
this great question.   When the Chinese
were  excluded  from   working   underground, Nanaimo entered on an era of
prosperity she had never before experienced.   The influx of white labor to replace that formerly done by the Chinese
gave Nanaimo an unprecedented hoist.
White labor is sufficiently  cheap, and
plenty of men and boys are willing to do
the work originally done by the Chinese.
and there is no visible reason why Chinese should be employed in the placa of
otfr white brethren.   It is a well know
fact that Chinamea are not a source of
revenue to the trades people and consequently one would expect the latter to
assist the workingmen in any endeavors
they  may  make to   exclude the  Mongolians.

[From our Special Correspondent.]
Texada, Headquarters of Courier,
Surprise Lode. April i8, '89.
My last, hearing date of the 14th inst.
was   necessarily   brought   to  a sudden
close by the unexxected shriek ot the Rustlers' whistle, and as my mail must go ou
her, finished or otherwise,—if  I  would
havo it reach Nanaimo in time for publication—I hurriedly collect together tho
scattered sheets of manuscript that lie on
the ground about me, and hasten down
the rough trail, at break-neck speed to
Miller's camp, a half mile distant, where
the steamer usually makes her landing,
I arrived just in time to witness the first
boat load of passengers make their landing, for as there is no  wharf here, the
steamer has to convey her freight  and
passengers to  the shore bv means of a
small boat.   Thc new arrivals represent
all classes.    There was,  lirst  and paramount, the Capitalist, then following in
their regular order or classification, came
the  Mining   Expert,   the   Mining   Engineer and Assayer and last but not least
the hardy   Prospector   who   invariably
does all  the work and usually gets  left
when  it  comes to handing around tlio
"pie." The names of these representative persons were II. E. McKee, of Vancouver, B. C, representing the Texada
Mining Company,   of   Vancouver;  W.
L. Fagan,  Provincial Tax Collector; Dr.
W. Bredemeyer, also of Vancouver, Assayer and Mineralogist; S. R. McGowan,
Mining Expert of San Francisco,  late of
Alaska,  two prospectors,  Richards and
another whose name I did not ascertain
and A. Roper, our fellow townsman who
has large interests here—being part on ner
of the now famous Surprise Ledge, over
which there is now so much dispute as
to tge ownership.   On the return of the
boat to the steamer—which  was about
100 yards distant, 1 took advantage of the
opportunity and went on board where I
met the genial skipper, Cant. Le Blanc
from whom 1 gut a copy ol The Coniiicit,
which is much Bought after hereabouts
for general  news, and after a pleasant
chat—tbe boat in  the  meantime being
freighted—wc pulled for tho shore, and
bade adieu to the Rustler, the captain and
the jolly crew.   On shore all was activity
cacli one collecting together  his  belongings.     It     would     be      useless      for
me    to    attempt     11     description     of
the many things strewn along the beach,
suffice to say, there wero eatables  of  all
kinds, and as for tools everything was to
be found from a needle to an anchor, and
when I scrutinized some   of   the heavy
tools I sympathized with the poor fellows
who must soon shoulder them and  commence the ascent of   the mountain.   On
my return trip to camp, 1 fell to ruminating, and could not help   thinking  of the
sad experienco of many prospectors, who
alter weeks   and   months—aye,   and in
some instances years—of  toil,  hardship,
and privations in   tlie   search   for gold,
whoso efforts were about to   he   crowned
and their hopes realized by its discovery,
but who   too  otton   fell   victims   to the
clutches  of  the  omnivorous  capitalist,
from whoso grasp they never were frood
until tho rich reward of their   unceasing
efforts had been wrested from them.   I
trust tbat tho old story may never repeat
itself here on Texada Island, and that the
honest and hardy prospector may reap
the harvest of his well earned  toil.   The
foregoing is not penned to discourage or
prevent capital from seeking investment
here—and it will come, have no fear on
that score—but it is  written to  put the
workingman on his guard, whose friend
I am and ever shall be, and as I am now
thoroughly  convinced  of   the assurred
richness of the mineral deposits  of this
island— for seeing is believing—I am desirous that the deserving shall not bo deprived of that which is his due.    In   my
previous  lettera  I have  described the
salient features of all claims that I  have
visited and shall now continue by   Speaking of the Blue  Bell   Company's  claims
and in connection herewith   I   will give
the reader to understand that I havo personally examined each claim of which I
write, taking my notes from the ledges as
I came across them. Tlio first then is tho
Blue Boll" This claim is running south
and fs really an extension ef the  "Welsh
Oak"—the property of the Invincible Co.
Thero has been no work done upon it as
yet, though it  was  one   of  the earliest
claims staked off.   From  surface indications it displays  a  good   looking ledgo
which can be traced for 11 long  distance.
We next came to the "George Denning"
which is an extension on the south of tho
Blue Bell, this claim like the  above  has
no    work    done     upon     it,   but    has
a good lode upon it easily traced for somo
distance.   We are   now on   the   Roving
Clan, which is next   to and west   of the
Denning, running paralled with it, There
has been no work done upon it worthy ol
the  prospector's  immediate   attention.
Next conies thc Grade, which has n g""d
looking   ledge upon   it, fully   exposed to
view below the  surface.    A  tunnel lias
been run into the hillside looking Smith,
which   shows  the  lode   to be 8   feel in
width, with good indications uf widening
as the   work proceeds;   the rock   is of a
greyish   color,  showing   pyrites of   iron
and copper with a streak or white quartz
following on ils side.   This   ledge has all
the appearance of carrying  much silver,
and is a fine looking prospect.
On my way down to the next claim, 1
saw the posts of the Ontario lode, which
belongs to a Victoria company. This
claim has a very good looking ledgo upon
it. Also came across the El Padre claim,
located by Paul Santiny, which runs
Southeast and Northwest. This property
runs along thc side of a steep bill, and
has several small ledges crossing it. It is
probably the private property of the locator. There has been no work done upon
it.
The next claim, belonging to the Blue
Bell Company, was the Peg Top, which
should havo been named the Tip Top,
for it has a fine looking ledge upon it,
which can be traced for some, distance,
and which would not long remain hidden
from view, if it was my property. It
being about lunch time, ami finding ourselves in the neighborhood of Kirk's
cabin, wo strolled over in that direction
to seo what we could find to eat, and on
our way over passed the celebrated Nut
Cracker claim, owned by Messrs. Evans
and James.   The outcrop,   showing the
frold, was covered up, so wc did not mo-
est it; the rock all about, however, was
noticeable as being auriferous. On arriving at the cabin we were given a cordial
welcome, and soon were discussing the
latest mining news over a well cooked
meal of bacon and beans, with bread and
chocolate. Our host, Mr. Hugh Kirk,
was the first to discover the Nut Cracker
claim, but through some means allowed
it to slip from hiB grasp into the hands of
his late partner, Mr. Degnan, who sold it
to the present owners for the
MERE PITTANCE
of $1500. *
After lunch, we took leave of our hospitable host, and next paid our respects
to the Swamp Angel. There is no work
done upon this claim, though it has a
good looking lode running throughout its
length and several crossing it at right
angles.
Next came tbe Jessie, which had some
work done upon it, and which is looking
well, and has a good lode upon it, though
I should say that the rock is of a low
grade, but what does that signify, if there
be lots of it? and to all appearances this
is the case.
The Bear's Nest, on Douglas Island,
Alaska, which was sold last summer to
an English syndicate, for $2,000,000, only
averages $li per ton ; and if the Jessie can
only hold its own, and 1 think it can, it
is reasonable to believe this lode will yet
dime to the front.
The Flora Hays claim was the next
presented to our view. This little claim
is destined to be one of the richest properties owned by the Blue Boll Company,
although the smallest, and is a fractional
parcel bounded on three sides by the
Jessie, Gladstone and Yellow Jacket, and
was probably located on account of its
supposed richness, the close proximity of
the celebrated Nut Cracker ledge, possibly suggesting to the locator the advisability of staking it off. The surface indications are similar to those ofthe Nut
Cracker, upon which so much gold has
been found. If I were the fortunate
locator of this claim,! should at once
sink a shaft, in the expectation of bringing to light some of thc precious metals
which are undoubtedly stored beneath
the surface. In Ibis claim alone, 1 consider the Blue Bell Company the possessors nf a genuine bonanza.
The Lizzie was the next seen. It is
full of cross ledges, and is sure to he a
paying claim if properly worked.
i saw one prospect hole which looks
well, and a further prospecting will un-
doubedly give better results.
The Nancy was the last of the Company's claims I visited. It is a daisy, and
is carrying
MICH     S1LVEB
and I would not be afraid to venture a
small amount that the outcrop would assay from fifteen to twenty dollars to the
toil. There is one hole sunk on the
mountain side to a depth of 16 feet which
shows the lode to be .", feet in width, the
ledgo is running N. E. and S. W., though
a little to the North. The lode is begining
to expand in width. The Nancy is a fine
claim and the company are very fortunate
in being the possessors of such n tine
looking prospect. In my travels I also
ran across several flood looking claims,
prominent among which were the Jones'
lode, belonging to the Lady of the Lake
Company, Victoria, the Yellow Jacket
which has had considerable work done
upon it, the Little Gem and tho Northern
Spy, which latter is very rich in copper,
and also carries considerable silver. In
fact the whole island shows itself to be
very rich in minerals and ere long must
undoubtedly prove to the most skeptical
of mankind that the riches yet undeveloped within her borders are second
onlv to the celebrated Comstock Lode
which in a few years made so many
millionaires in the United States west.
