The remanded ease against Q. Simpson,
charged will iinnilting an aggravated
i assault upon K, McDonough was called,
Mr, R, Seoular appeared lor the plaintiff, and Mr, E. Varwood for the defence.
(leorge P.evilockwny on being sworn
said, I reside in Nan.iimo, on the Victoria
crescent; know the plaintiff and defendant, (in Friday last hearing high words
near my place of business and loud talking, I ran out of the shop and heard Simpson say "will you take it back" or something like that j McDonough in answer,
held up his hands (like this) in fighting
attitude, aboul the same time I think
i Simpson put lip his bands; the defendant
then struck out rigid and left as hard as
he could. McDonough then jumped oil
the sidewalk into the street; after he
fMcTJ) had jumped off tbe sidewalk he
put up his hands to protect his face from
tin; blows; I did not see him strike; I
thought first he was going in for a square
fight, when Simpson struck him (McD)
he fell into the mud and was all the time
calling for help ;we looked on until Simpson started to kick him (McD) when I
went over and said to Simpson, that it
was not right to kick him like that you
might kill him; there were two or three
others there and also spoke, when Simp-
so;: left him , the kicks seemed to strike
him in the head; I think perhaps the
marks on the complainant's bead were
the result of the kicking; f saw blood on
his face at the time.
Cross-examined by Mr. Yarwood—1
saw blood on his face when he came on
the sidewalk after it was done; I don't
know where he (Simpson) struck ihe complainant, but be seemed to strike him on :
the head; the marks might have been
done by the fist; I have seen marks done ;
like that with the fist; after it was over
McDonough said he was a cripple, hut if
the defendant would meel bim with a pistol, knife or razor be would meet him on
fair grounds; I did not bear all ofthe conversation.
By the court—I actually saw Simpson
kick McDonough; be kicked him more
than once; the kicking seemed lo go to:
his face; McDonough had both of his
bands up to his face while the kicking
was being done.
Peter G. Brodle, sworn said—I know |
the complainant and the defendant; on
Friday last saw them on Victoria Crescenl;
saw the complainant 011 the ground and
the defendant kick bim ; the complainant
had his hands up to his face, but can't
say whether Ihe defendant kicked him on
hands or face.
Cross-examined by Mr. Seoular—I
beard the complainant calling for help and
ran out of the bakerv at the time;, the
complainant wus on bis bands and knees,
face downwards in the street (witness i
showed court tlie position) Simpson was;
kicking (McD) on the right side.
Matthew Duffy was called as a witness ;
for the defence and being sworn said—
Know the complainant and defendant:
I saw them on Friday last on Victoria
Crescent, was with Simpson on that day
going up home when we met McDonough;
Simpson said he had received his (McD)
letter, McDonough said ''yes" and Simpson asked him (McD) if he thought he had
any right to send him that letter and McDonough said "yes"; Simpson then asked
him (McD) to take n walk to get satisfac-
tion and (McD) said bu would give him
all the Satisfaction he (Simpson) wanted;
Simpson said "let's have satisfaction
now;" McDonough put down his stick
and Simpson squared off to bim ; McDonough putup his lists to defend himself, this was before Simpson struck him
and then Simpson struck bim on the
head just about where It is sore now;
McDonough ran into the middle of the
road and went down on bis knees and
Simpson struck him when he was clown.
McDonough put his bands to bis face and
Simpson kicked bim. He (McD) had bis
hands over his face when Simpson kicked him and shouted for help; Webb ami
others came out and be Simpson stopped.
Cross-examined by Mr. Seoular—McDonough did not say he was a cripple till
after he was down on his knees; Can't
say with which band Simpson struck McDonough 1 McDonough was not thereby
defending himself the whole time; Simp
son struck the first blow; McDonough I
struck at, hut did not hit Simpson as be
(Simpson) was too quick for him.
Re-examined by Mr. Yarwood—When
McDonough went oil'tbe sidewalk be was
bleeding. This was before he was down
on Ins bands and knees, it was before the
kicking.
James render, was also called and
sworn and gave lo large extent corroborative evidence nf the last witness.
The counsel for the prosecution ami tho
defence then addressed the court al considerable length and the court having considered the evidence and reviewed the law

"Yes, sir," replied the dejected, hollow-
eyed man, "1 am the man she tries her new

"Ho Had Fifteen Dollars.'1
"I'd fifteen dollars in my   inside pecket."
He sang it ia a voice dial resembled a cross'
bctweel  a buza-saw and a horse-fiddle as he
walked  towards the Long bridge lasl night.
A stray cur alarmed nt the hideous sound set
up a howl of dismay and  tied.     A belated
Siwasll and an almond-eyed celestial, stopped
to listen and, then,   with  acceleraled   pace,
passed on.   Not so ihe scribe.   He was used

i pectantly,nnd he was nolafraid. but just then
I ihe songster's voiije ceased, and ft hand was
: laid on the singer's shoulder, a voiee from out
' ofibe darkness said;—"See here then, pay me
that $11.60 I lent yen six months ago.'    The

The Nanaimo Rovers returned home
on Sunday evening from Vancouver, bin
contrary lo expectations they did nol
bring tlie cup with them, Several causes
transpired to beat the Island team. Tbe
Mainlunderii were in good training and
played well together, which was more
than could hi' said of the Island team,
When time was called the gamestood
four points and two tries to nothing in
favor of the Mainland.
The News-Advertiser says thai the
game was contested hotly at every point
and it was played in the friendliest Bpirit,
and was a splendid exhibition of science,
which onlv required fair weather to make
it perfect.
In the evening, after the match, a large
number sal down loan elegant dinner
given iu honor of the Islanders at the
Brighton house. Mr, bister, of New
Westminster, occupied the first chair and
I'. S. Consul Hawthrntbwaite tlie second
chair. Among the numerous toasts drank
was thai of the "President of the United
states," (o which Consul Hawthorn-
tbwaite responded ill a telling and eloquent speech. Altogether the hois report
having an excellent time and received the
best of usage from their entertainers.
I'pon the conclusion of the match Cap-
lain llaw'thornthwaitc on behalf ofthe
"Rovers" challenged the Mainland team
for the championship, hut they could not
at that time state whether the challenge
would be accepted or not.
UE  WAS  HIT.
"We have—all of us, in fact, have, seen
a spoilt and wayward child, on being re
proved by its mentor for a wrong act, fly
into an angry passion, cry and kick and
scream until, at last, becoming so angry,
il is unable to articulate distinctly, but a
few disjointed and meningless words are
uttered. Such an exhibition was seen in
yesterday's issue of our contemporary, in
answer to our comment upon their publishing a bawdy letter. The exhibition of
anger was unseeraingly and demonstrates
the truthfulness of the adage. 'Those who
live in glass houses should not throw
stones.' "

Press. A libera' reward will be paid al

VICTORIA  HAPPENMGS.
Bold Burglars Make a Determined Attempt at Safe Blowing, but
Fail in their Designs,
(Spec:al t i thr Courier.)
Victoria, March 11.-Professional cracksmen made t desperate and determined attempt to blow open a safe in
Ihury Saunders grocery store early Sun-
lav morning. They entered tbe premises
from tlie rear and after rummaging the
•Imwers in the office and securing nothing
they attacked the safe in a systematic
manner. The safe is a large one. weighing aboni two tons, manufactured by Hall
of Chicago. Tin v drilled a hole in a side
of the safe, intending to strike il between
die outside and inside doors. They missed thi' right place by half an inch and
drilled into Ihe inside safe. A charge of
gunpowder, estimated by experts lobe
nbou! ten pounds, was then blown into the
safe and tired. Sacks of oatmeal were
placed around the safe to deaden Ihe
sound. The safe stood the pressure and
■he crooks were foiled. There were twelve
hundred dollars in the safe. After the
explosion and when they saw the attempt
was a failure they decamped. It is said
there are several professional burglars in
the city and the police have their eyes
open and its hoped they will be captured.

have been hurled nt us. simply because
we dare to advocate measures which, we
believed were essential to Nanaimo's progress. "What arc your arguments," has
been asked us and we have endeavored to
reply, and in a lair accurate and impartial
manner, point out the benefus which
would accrue to this city, were substantial Improvements inaugurated. We believe that a policy of inaction, as concerns
the vital interests of this city has been
too long pursued, and as we breve said before while not wishing to plunge the cltv
Into debt which would in the future.
prove too burdensome for it to carry we
are first, last and all the time ready to advocate such measures as we believe are
possible to be enacted for the city's permanent improvement. Among these is the
borrowing of money for such purposes, as
are necessary to the material welfare of
this city. It is too patent even lo
any casual observer, that our
streets and bridges are in a mis
erable condition ; our sidewalks especially
on the principal thoroughfares arc—anything but good, while some of our streets
have no sidewalks at all; then there is
tbe question of sewerage, which without
having some system, tho health of the
city cannot be preserved. And again, the
question of an adequate water supply is
one which must in the near future entail
the expenditure of considerable money
if the citizens wish to have a pure, wholesome supply free from nil contaminating
sources. In fact there are so ninny wants
that need attention, and so many grievances that need redressing that thcy_ cannot be dealt with in the space of
one short article. Xeed we
again point to tbe rapid strides made by
other younger cities on this coast as an
evidence of what tlie judicious nnd liberal
expenditure of money ran do in placing
them in a position which would be a
credit to many older, but still not so progressive towns. And yet these same
cities are not bankrupt; their merchants:
do a satisfactory and ever increasing business; their streets multiply; new enterprises are started in their midst: modern
improvements are introduced and th*
whole city is benefited. Why? Because
its citizens are alive to its requirements;
because they are not blind to all advantages; because they tire hot content'
to see other towns outstrip them iu all
things which go to make up a live, progressive city. Can this be doubted. If so,
we ask any intelligent reader to look
around him and see for himself. Note
the progress made by Vancouver, Seattle,
Taeoina, while even now the slow, sleepy
town of Port Townsi-ml is awakening and
coining to the front. Why? BscaUBe its
citizens realize the fact thai if they do not
wish to pass into a stale of "tiller forget-
fulness," that they must lake advantage
of the limes and assert themselves. VVl
believe in aggressiveness. We arc "pugnacious" and we are not ashamed to own
it.   It need not either ba taken si a vain
boast; for we have more respect for thr
man who will light for a principle than
for him who always wishes to be on tbe
safe side, and whose principles are subservient always to the whims of tlie tide,
Which will, perchance, bring the most
shekels to his coffers. He is only a time
server and mercenary to a degree. He
would sell himself for literally thirty
pieces of silver. Tlie growth, the welfare,
the health of the city is nothing to bim so
long as lie gets his piece.
But seriously speaking we want to ask
it our citizens, for the sake of their future
welfare, are prepared to vole for tho adoption of the proposed loan. I'o they consider it necessary? Is the good which
the expenditure of ths money will brine,
commensurate with the increased taxa
tion which will be levied? We answer,
unhesitatingly, yes. And the experience
of other cities will hear us out in the
statement. We ask n full, free and fair
discussion, divested of all prejudices and
partisan feeling. And we believe that if
tlie subject is considered on its merits the
answer will be advantageous to the city—
vis: in the adoption of this by-law, which
must prove of greal and lasting hem lit to
all. Let the rate payers of Ibis city
weigh the question on its merits, and we
do not fear the result.

I duet as a test for a man's release and the j
man who "knows tbe ropes," so to speak,
will live up to it. If il were in tlie power
of man to search the heart, inderterral-
nate sentences would be regarded with
unreserved favor; but with the limitations
which have been placed on human capacity, the theory cannot be accepted in its
fullness, The most dangerous class of
criminals is that which has education, j
great natural shrewdness and all outward
accomplishments. There are men to-day
in every prison iu the land who, until |
their misdeeds were discovered, passed as
good citizens and as good Christians.
Such men, when inside of the walls of a
prison, would bring {forth, apparently,
works for repentance as would melt the
hearts of wardens and prison boards who
are carried away with theories. There is
no human tribunal which can make more I
Hum a random guess at the effect of prison
life upon the hearts of these men. The
Ignorant ruffian is a much more promising
subject for reformation than these. Tliey
are not "habitual criminals." There is
no reason why they should he kept in
prison always, but there is even less reason why they should be released upon
any protestations of penitence and of conviction of sin (which they never confessed
until they were found out) until they
have had a season of restraint and reflection commensurate with their offense.
