BRITISH COLUMBIA STEAM BAKERY,!

The invesligalion of the charges preferred against I'aenc.i i. by the London Times
seems now to be drawing nearly to a close.
It may not be improper at this .imeto
give u brief resume ofthe fuels of the castas developed up lo the present time. Most
of tbe important witnesses by whom il
was hoped to prove, not only PARNEI.b't
iOmpUcity in the Phoenix Park murders
and other outrages, but tbe authenticity
of the letters which were published In the
Times and which purported to have been
from him have been examined. These
witnesses, as will be remembered, were a
Major Le Caron, a spy, employed by the
■English government for the purpose of
ferreting put matters connected with the
Irish Nationalist Leagues. lie succeeded
in obtaining admission to many of tin-
leagues both in Ireland end tbe United
States, and was .m tlie most intimate
terms of frienship with many of the Irish
lenders in both countries. His evidence,
however, did not direotlv Implicate Par-
nell in any of the outrages that had been
perpretrated, although it went to show
thai they had been planner! al league
meetings, ami aided and abetted by prominent members, all of whom were more or
less closely associated with PARNELL. Although be stood along and searching
cross-oxnmination very well, and stuck
pretty closely to his original story, bis
evidence is very generally de-credited
and did nol result ns injuriously to the
Trish cause ns those on the opposing side
hoped il would. Tbe very fiut of bis
being an acknowledged spy was against
him whilethe lying,deception and duplicity
be admitted to have practised in order to
gain the inforrnalion of which he said be
had become possessed, went to show that
bis testimony, uncorroborated, was, to
say the least, of doubtful reliability. Tbe
main interest, however, was centered in
the efforts to prove llio authenticity ofthe
Bo-called I'arnell letters. Had the evidence in this direction been oven ns good
ns that given by l.e Caron, the out-look
for Mr. Parnell would bo much less
hopeful, and his position before the public would lie much different to-day from
what it is. This was Ihe important point,
and this was just the point at which tin
Times case completely broke down. Mi:.
SOAMBSj the solicitor of (be Times, was
placed in the witness hri\' and he was
forced to admit that the letters were put-
chased from a man named Pigott, a person of very doubtful character, and a 1 >i I -
ter enemy of Parnei.i..
He also admitted lhal the Timesboughl
these letters without any serious attempt
to prove their authenticity or In trace
their history, and on the testimony of a
single expert in hand-writing (he Times
published the letters as genuine, and on
these based the terrible attacks which il
made on Pnrneli. The very fad that
more than $211.(1011 was paid for the letter*
whose genuineness rested mainly, on tbe
unsupported statement of n man like Pigott, when il became known, went a great
way to convince tlie public that Ihe whole
charges WOlte baseless, and that the great
newspaper had been terribly hoaxed.
The finishing touch, however, was put on
when Pigott was placed iu the witness
box. lie told hisBtory very nicely, bul
il was badly shaken in cross-examination,
and wbeii he was confronted by letters
over his own signature, and which he was
forced in admit had been written by him-
sell', offering lo sell ihe Information he
pretended to possess to both parties, he
completely broke down and showed himself tobo a rogue, poltroon and coward
From a close analysis of these inters, and
from a comparison of specimens.of Pig-
o-n's composition mid spelling furnished
in tbe court wilh similar phrases and
words in the letters, there remains not
the least doubt but that they were forged
by him nnd sold to Ihe Times. The evidence and conduct of this rascnl in thr
witness box nnd under crosK-exnininalinn
has practically given away Ihe whole case
for the Tunes and shows that it is certain
to break down, and the charges Hindi
ngaind I'ai n l . will ivl o mil with redoubled force upon itself, while the objects of
ils altiieks and malevolence will stop from
court honored ten-fold more than
ever before. The result of these
charges and of this trial will do
more for the cause of Ireland and
to hasten a solution of the Trish
qadBtipri than anything that has yet occurred, although the chtngovyill be in a
diU'ei-ent direction from that hoped by
those who made the charges as well ns by
those who appointed tlie tribunal to try
them when tho trial commenced, Tlie
tragic death of Pigott by bis own hand is
familiar to nil, and his very death would
seoiii to make Parnell's case milch stronger. An English paper sny.s that, if I'arnell
clears his character Englishmen will re
do nol look upon Ihe knight with   favor, j

of vital interest to your spirited (!) contemporary.
In seizing tho opportunity you will render it of incalculable benefit, and 1 doubt

Its moat sincere thanks for trying so disinterestedly to save it from the senile decay and premature dotage that threatens

brain-rust
"Brain-rust" would vr°bably strike
most persons as only one of those u^ly
compound \\i>n.s which Home people have
a fancy for using when simpler and more
familiar terms would suit their purpose
better; hut if we may (mat Sir J. Cilch-
ton Browne, "brain-rust" is no metaphorical or fanciful expression, but a
pretty accurate description of a physical
fact. Something, at all events, very similar to "the rugged corrosion with which
we are familiar on iron or steel" is occasionally to he found on the human bruin.
As this eminent authority has often had
occasion to warn ns of the dangers of excessive mental labor, he is fairly entitled
to he heard when he comes forward to
caution us against the cause of "brain-
rust," which Is simply tlie neglect to give
tlie brain a fair and healthy amount of
exercise. All organs, as he says, are
strengthened by use and damaged by inactivity; and this is especially true of our
brains* which actually begin to waste
away whan we leave off thinking. A
sluicing illustration is furnished by acom-
parison of the wild and the tame duck.
Dr. Orichton Browne's experiments have
led him to the discovery that the former
has, weight for weight, a brain just twice
as heavy as the latter; besides which a
"mental sprightllness and spontaneity"
are observable in the wild duck—cliarac-
li ristics never to be noted in its domestic
congener. The reason is dear. Tame
ducks have nothing to think about, for all
they need is provided for them; wild
ducks, on the contrary, are in no danger
of "brain-rust," for the simple reason that
they have to live by their wits."
Whereas it is expedient and desirable to
raise bv way of loan, on the credit of the
Municipality ofthe City of Nanaimo the
sttli. of $30 ddo payable on tlie first day of
July A. 1). 1929 with  iuictfA rt tlie rale j

6. It shall he lawful for ihe said corporation from lime to time, lo repurchase any ot*
