Indianapolis,Ind., Aug. 16.—Attorney-
General Miller was seen again at liis residence yesterday and asked if lie had
anything further to say aliout the Bhoot-
ing of Judge Jorr.y by Marshal Nagle.
He replied: "I see from the papers that
the action of tlie deputy is pretty gener
ally endorsed. It appears to be considered that Nngle's presence was necessary
aud liis action justified. I do not core to
speak of the legal aspects of the case. I
do not know any case analogous to it in
our history, anil I do not recall that it
has ever been necessary before to provide
protection for a United States judge. If
the case comes to trial I suppose I mill
be called to testify, but I question whether there ever will he a trial." The
grand jury may refuse to act, or the coroner's jury may find it a cose of justifiable homicide. I hove net examined the
legality of the question, however. I
thought that the protection of the officers
of the law might be necessary antl I
know something about the desperate character of the man with whom Justice
Field had to deal. I thought ol trouble when 'the trial began, but of
course I did not look for it at a way station or upon the train. If the justice's
life was in danger, though, he was sb
much entitled to the protection of an
officer at an eating house as in a court
room or upon a bench." Though the
attorney-general was very guarded ia his
utterances, liis manner indicated very
plainly that he believed Deputy Nagle
fully justified ia shooting Terry.
BALE OK TIMIIKK LIMITS.
Ottawa, Out., Aug. 15.—The largest
sale of timber limits ever held iu this
district took place yesterday, when the
whole of E. C. Eddy's limits and saw
mills were put up Ior auction. The lumbermen present at thc sale represented
over $60,000,000. There was about one
quarter of a million dollars of limits sold,
the remainder being withdrawn, owing
to the price offered being insufficient.
Mr. Eddy wishes to retire from the lumber business and is going into tlie manufacture of pulp for paper.

Minneapolis, Minn., Aug. 10.—The
subsidiary high court of the Ancient
Order of Foresters yesterday voted to
sever all connection with the high court
of Knglaml and organise an American
high court. Differences arose over the
admission ol colored men to the order,
the English high court insisting on it and
tho Americans objecting. On opening of
the afternoon session the six who voted
against, the declaration of independence
withdrew their votes and made it unanimous. There was some discussion over
the adoption of a name for the new
order, but the convention fully agreed
upon the "Ancient Order of Foresters of
America." Tlie term "high court" was
changed to "supreme court," and all
changes were made in order to Americanize ns far as possible tlie new organization. The was a parade anil banquet this
evening.

Weller was tho first man ho met and he
I fired  a   heavy   load   of   shot   into  the
I deputy's face "producing a fearful miitila-
i tion.   Weller fell dead and before his
companions could take action   Hrownell
' had made good his escape.    He is hiding

I likely he lynched, as public feeling is
much excited.   Weller was 28 years old

Washington, Aug. 16. — The department of state bas referred to the Attorney-General the case of Captain Duyer-
gier, recently convicted of killing an
American consul named Stanwood, at

are not extensive it is proposed that l)u-
vergier be brought to this country hy a
United States war vessel and confined in
this country until the expiration of the
term. The'question that arises is whether a legal right existB to imprison him

grant a writ of haieas corpus on thiB
ground. No precedents exist by which

It iB pointed out hero as an indication
of the result of to-day's conference in the
Maybrick case that the l,ord Chancellor,
who took part in it, is rarely consulted
except in cases were a reprieve is meditated. Here is on excellent reason for
believing that Mr. Matthews and the ex
perts engaged with hint in going over the
evidence given at the trial, began their
work with the assumption that Mrs,
Maybrick was not guilty ol the deliberate murder of her husband. With this
idoa they sifted every scrap of evitleiieo
and noted especially the testimony as to

Mr. Rudd as a token of the good will and
esteem in which lie was held by his
friends in Nanaimo. After which those
assembled sang "He's a jollv good fellow" in a most lusty, heartfelt manner.
Mr. Rndd, in reply, stated that he was
quite overwhelmed bv the many unexpected marks of triendship that had been
showered upon him during the evening,
traits had been discovered in his character by his friends that he did not dream
he possessed but hoped he deserved
them. Nanaimo would alwas occupy
a warm spot in his heart, it had been his
home ever since lie had lieen in British
Columbia, he might almost say since he
had lieen in America, and "having to
leave it,and his many friends,caused bim
many a heartfelt regret. His sojourn on
the west coast had opened np a new
phase of life to him after living in England, and nearly all his happy memories
in America were associated with Naaaimo. Words would fail to express his
feelings to those who had assembled at
the festive board to wish him God speed.
Mr. Galbraith was call upon for a song,
but was afterwards allowed te give a recitation, "Tho Death of Marmion," which
he rendered in a most masterly manner.
Mr. E. Pimbury, in proposing the
health of the Mayor and Council, complimented them on heing the tmiBt progressive body that had ever sat in ths

Aid. Nightingale responded saying that

Aid. Mahrer was also called upon to
respond and did so in a few well placed sentences in which he said that he entirely
concurred with his brothei Alderman

duty as long as he was honored by representing a ward in the city.
Mr. A. Richardson was called upon for
a recitation anal favored the audience
with tho milliner in which a lady was introduced into the mysteries of Odd Fellows which was received with applause.
Mr. Tagart. proposed the toast of Our

at length. Aid. Mahrer in response said
that the la'st guarantee he could give of
liis faith in the industries of our little
city was that, he had embarked a large

Thkkk were self-sacrilia'ina; heroes before Father Daniien. Moravians. ICng-
liskt and Herman, have been working
among lepers for more than hall a century. In 1818, long before the brave
father was thought of, 11 Moravian missionary and his English wife entered
upon their perilous -juties at the Leper
Hospital for Hottentots in South Africa;
antl Robhen Island with its hundreds of
pitiable sufl'erers, is a standing witness
to many years of devoted and successful
efl'ort. In 1807 a similar work of mercy
was begun among the numerous lepers
af Jerusalem. The original asylum once
enlarged to meet the demand for admission, has now been superseded by a
capacious building. And at this moment
no fewer than four devoted Moravians
are consecrating their lives to this service.
Cmtiois etiquette prevails at State
balls in Kngland. A sharp distinction
is made between those who are of royalty, er iu theroyol set, and those who are
not. It is obligatory to respond to a royal
desire (or a dance with a particular partner, and the Lord Chamberlain is the
intermediary in the negotiations. Everyone at a Slate ball has been presented
at Court, and therefore all are supposed
to be on terms of saluting acquaintance
with royalty. But the distinction between royal persons and the other guests
is curiously shown in oho little matter
A glance of recognition from 11 royal personage entails upon both ladies and gentlemen so honoured a special acknowledgment. A lady bends "the knee witli
a swift ducking gesture," and a man
"merely bows." An observer, who lias
studied a State ball in its spectacular aspect, remarks that "the elicit of this
ducking as a prince passes on reminds
•ne of a gust of wind bending a Held nf
Bowers."
A vkik or two ago dealers in and owners of precious stones were startled by
the announcement that a French chemist
had succeeded in manufacturing artificial
rubies, uiidistinguishahle in all respects
from the natural gem. Nothing came of
the discovery, however, rubies being still
as scarce and as dear as ever. It is now
the tarn of the emerald, which two
French scientists, MM. Ilautefeiiille
and Perrey, claim to be able to imitate
>o successfully thai the most practised
expert will fail to detect any difference
between the artificial and the genuine
Stone. They make rid mystery of their
process, which consists in "(using silex,
aluminium, and glucine iu certain proportions with traces ol oxide of chromium in the molvbdate acid of lithine"
—the mixture to he kept at 11 heat of
somn 700 degrees ceutrigrade for lifteen
days. Bnt, as was the case with the
artificial rubies, tlie crystals are extremely minute, and contribute as little to ornament as to use; so that unless the manufacturing process be greatly perfected,
the emerald will maintain ils price ns the
ruby has done..

King George nml  Shakespeare.
A fashionable uuthoi-ess of tho last
century wus Miss Fanny Burney,
whose "EvQlinn" delighted Dr. Johnson and Sir Joshua Reynolds. When
sho had become famous she was the
gtiest of Mrs. Delaney, n venerable,
cultured lady, who lived nt Windsor,
uot far from tho castle whero George
IU and Queen Charlotte resided. Tho
king and queen frequently called on
their neighbor, and shy Miss Funny at
such times sought her own room.
But ono afternoon she and Mrs. Do
laney were in the drawing room, when
suddenly the door opened. A large
inau entered, wlio shut tlio door without speaking. Tlio star on his breast
revealed to Miss Burney that sho stood
in the presence of the king. She re
treated to the wall. The king advanced lo his hostess and in a loud
whisper asked if thut was Miss Burney.
Upon being assured that it was ho
drew near and entered into conversation witll her.
"But what— what—how wns it—how
camo you—how happened it—what—
wlint—what?" be asked, in bis usual
odd manner. Believing ho referred
to "Evelina," sho replied that it had
been written ut odd hours for amusement
"But your publishing—your print-
.-ig—how wus that— what— what?" bo
asked;   to which   sho  answered:   "I
thought, sir, it would   look   woll   in
fa,    print," at whicli ho wus vastly amused.
Soon sho becamo familiar witli Iho
presenco of royalty, and on one occu
sion had tho advantage of hearing bis
majesty's criticisms on somo famous
men. Voltaire bo pronounced a monster, and Shakespeare ho considered
little better than a fool.
"Was thero over," cried out this
royal Solomon, "such stuff as grout
part of Shakespeare?—only ono must
not say so. But what think you—what
—what—is there not sad stuff—what
—what—what?"
Fanny Burney ventured to assert
that the Bad stuff was mixed with many
excellencies; but he interrupted her to
ejaculate;
"Oh, I know it is not to be said—but
it's truo—only it's Shakcspearo, and
nobody dares abuse him; ono should
bo stoned for saying so."—Youth's
Companion.
A Comfortable  View of Crime.
It will throw somo light on tho in
habitants of Fernando do Noronliit lo
know how crime is looked upon by
tho common peoplo in Brazil, and 1
cannot better show this than by re-
luting a bit of personal experience.
Iliad tho misfortune at one time to
wound a Brazilian laborer—in liis dignity. He thereupon threatened to take
my life, and was by no means careful
to keep bis resolution to himself. As
tho carrying out of such a determination on his part would haro caused
mo much inconvenience, I called upon
him in person, with tho purpose, if
possible, of dissuading him.
I found (hut lie did not look upon
thu condition of a criminal with dread
at all. Ho told me frankly tliat, if lie
should succecccd in carrying out bis
design, ho know perfectly well whut
liis career would bo. "At present,"
said he, "lam obliged to work for u
living; if I am sent to jail, my living
will bo furnished ino, and I shall havo
nothing lo do. If you aro dead, thoro
will bo uo ono to uppcar against mo in
tho courts as my licenser, and in the
course of a your or less I shall bo set
frco, woll rested, and with tho reputation in lliocoiiiintiiiily of being a man
of courage."
In this caso 1 saw lo it that bo had
tho opportunity of enjoying the coveted otiuin cum diguitato in jail witli
out having to commit a crime. But
in a country whero wrong doing sets
so lightly upon tho conscience, aud
whero it so frequently goes altogether
unpunished, tho criminal class is large
as wo should expect.—John 0. Bran-
iior in Popular Science Monthly.

Advice to invalids—If you wub to opttun
quiet refreshing sleep, free (run) headache,
relief from pain and anguish, to calm and
assuage the weary achings of protracted
disease, invigorate the nervous media, and
regulate the circulating systems of lhe body,
you* will provide yourself with tnat marvellous remedy discovered by I Jr. J. Collis
Browne (late Army Medical Stall), to whicli
he gave thc name of CHLORODVNE, and
which is admitted by the profession to lie the
most wonderful and valuable remedy ever
discovered.
CHLORODYNE is the best remedy
known (or Coughs, Consumption, Bronchitis,
Asthma.
CHLORODYNE acts like a charm in
Diarrhoea, and is the only specific in Cholera
and Dysentery.
CHLORODYNE effectually cuts short all
attacks of Epilepsy, Hysteria, Palpitation
and Spasms.
CHLORODYNE Is the only palliative in
Neuralgia, Rheumatism, Gout, Cancer,
Toothache, Meningitis, oV: , &c.

Chemist*. M*»rliml Halt, Simla. January 5th,
1880: To J. T. Davenport, Esq., 33 Creat
Russell Street, Bloomsbury, London, Dear
Sir:—We embrace this opportunity of congratulating you upon the wide-spread repu*
tation this justly esteemed medicine, Dr. J.
Collis Jrowne's Chlorodyne, has earned for
itself, not only in Hlndostan, but all over
the Fast. As a remedy of general utility,
we much question Whether a better is imported into the country, and we shall be
glad to hear of its finding a place in every
Anglo-Indian home. The other brands, we
are happy to say, are now relegated to the
native bazaars, and judging from their salet
we fancy their sojurn there will be but
evanescent. We could multiply instances
infinitum of the extraordinary efficacy of
Dr. Collis Browne's Chlorodyne in Diarrhea,
and 2nd Dysentery Spasms, Cramps,
Neuralgia, the Vomiting of Pregnancy, and
ab. general Sedative, that have occurred
under our personal observation during many
years. In Choleraic Diarrhoea, and even if
the more terrible forms of Cholera itself, we
have witnessed its controlling power. We
haVe never used -iny other form of this
medicine than Collis Browne's, from a firm
conviction lhat it is decidedly the best, and
also from a sense of duty we owe to the pro]
fession and the public, as wc nre Of the
opinion tnat the substitution of any other
than Collis Browne's, is A DELIBERATE
BREACH OF FAITH ON TIIE BART
OF THE CHEMIST TO PRESCRIBE
AND PATIENT ALIKE. We are sir,
faithfully yours, Symes & Co., Members of
the Pharm. Society of Great Britain, liis
Excellancy the Viceroy's Chemists.

Our esteemed evening contemporary
has dropped in the moralizing stale, as
witness the following:
"A woman does not became a mother! she is one from her birth. A
numerous fninily satislies her vocu-
into; it does not create it."
We have studied this righl side up, upside down, crosswise and every other
way Imaginable, and have come to tbe
Conclusion thut it needs an explanation —
a sort of key to its solution. No doubt
