the same size. I could not recognize, thai

rheumatism and was not able to meet him

head over the eve brow, in close proximity to the temple—I then put my hand
over my temple to save my life as 1 did
not want to be kicked in the temple—Defendant, then kicked me on the bead—the
kicks on the bead produced the abrasion

Cross-examined by Mr. Ynrwood for
the defence—All T remember Simpson
Saving when be met me was that he wanted to see me. I am not sure whether it
was in front of Whitfield's or of Mr
Webb'sbakerv. Ihnvengnod memory:
defendant used words shmifying tbnt he
Wanted me to fight. I cannot remember
the Precise words although   it   was only
two hours and a half ago; to the best of
mv knowledge I swear that nothing was
said about a letter. II is some two months
and a half ago since defendant was pointed out to me as being "Mr. Simpson," I
was not looking about to have him pointed out to me. Tne cause of the attack
upon me was I presume because defendant had received a letter from me in which
I had expressed my opinion of him. The
letter produced, consisting of four sheets.
or sicrbt paces is the letter which I refer
to; I consider thst some underhand wort
of Mr. Simpson, which I told him was
cowardly, was the cause of the Ill-feeling'.
It was in connection with a lady in the
town, a friend of mine, at least I was under
that Impression, unfortunately the lady is
considered a "last woman." In a few
words it might be summed up as "jealousy." A woman was the cause nf it.
The woman did not "bounce" me; I swear
to It. I did not drop my cans until the
assault took placet I might liuvo done so
simultaneously with the blow.
Mr. Yarwood rend the following letter
which was put in.
Mu. G. Simpson, Nannimo,
Dear Sir—As I was called away from
Vinnimonu business before I got an opportunity of Seeing you personally, and
• -essing my exalted opinion of your,
noble, manly and generous conduct, I
take the lihcrtv of doing so now in very
pi    i  if   not llallcring terms.   To  your
pe nl character tor honesty, eic,  i
liavn nothing to lav, but of the course

affections on whom she pleases regardless
of tie worth ami Intelligence of the object
or his possession of the necessary qualifications to Insure her future happiness
The lady is an exceedingly intelligent and
noble-minded one. filled with a lofty and
soul-inspiring ambition, notwithstanding
her unfortunate condition at prossnt. It
is a mystery to me and will be to a great
number of bar friends how such a superior woman could allow herself to waste n
second thought, upon a man of your
calibre. You would certninlv be a most
congenial companion for such a woman,
nnd one she would be proud to Introduce
to the refined society that would welcome
her bnck on her return home, and of
which she is so eminently fitted to adorn,
and knowing your perfect familiarity with
the ways of good society, and your wonderful conversational powers, together
with your other brilliant accomplishments
she no doubt feels confident will reflect
great credit on her choice. "She will
surely be the envied of all" when she is
reminded nf the fact that n man elevates
the woman of bis choice to the position
be holds in society, but when a lady
marries lieneath her she has to descend to
his social level. I can amagine the ladv
in question taking you home and presenting you to her family, what a glorious
realisation of her bright, sunny dreams
and noble aspirations, "and what a lovely
prospect for the future." As you may
not find any black diamonds to dig In the
vicinity, you might gst yourself painted
in proper colors and hire yourself out foi
a barber's pole, or failing you might get a
job ys shoe-black, dish-washer, BCaveilget
or something of that kind. If you an
possessed of any business tact, "with
which I suppose yen are overflowing."
.judging from your general appearance,
and I have no doubt you are possessed'! f
the  necessary good Judgment  and  self
■confidence essential to success In business.
I would  advise   you  to start  a   pea-liul
stand and in the course of time you mm
, become a great merchant   "when the pift
ibegin lo fly."   The lady will certalnb

an! the play-toy. (?) What will she do
With it'.'. And now to enlighten you I
Ittle, let me tell you that if you knew
anything at all or bad a particle of innulj
Bride or spirit about you, you would have
scorned to touch a present from n rival
unless to cause it to be returned ami re
place it with a better one, "but no danger
qf your doing anything like that," or nnv
of your clan; for they never allow theft
generosity to carry them away, for it is
not characteristic of your race, l'.ut if
you luck in generosity or the principles of
a gentleman, 1 must certainly give yon
the credit of being possessed of unlimited
gall, to take my gift nnd place yntit
picture in it. I would fiavi
Ijied to study the countenance ol
possessed of such monumental check,
hut 1 could not on account of those heauli
I'ul locks being brought down to meet the
brows, as worn by all empty-headed
fellows and Mflcques. You will never
nd an intelligent iiian hide with his hair
is  forehead  the index   to Ills cbanictei
nnd the evidence of intelligence stamped
there by the Almighty. When 1 carried
the watch for a few weeks with your
picture in it I guarded it with jealous care
for my sense of honor and manly pride
would not allow me to touch It, although
von took French leave when you put ii
there, however, I believe your milk con i-
lennnce "if it could be seen through th'
lair" no longer adorns the watch. When
the lady took sick I did everything in my
power for her. I got the best doctor in
Nanaimo and got everything I could lliink
of or anyone suggest that would he likely
to relieve or benefit her. Before I Started
for C'omox 1 made arrangements with a
particular friend of mine, n responsible
business man, that if necessary to telegraph for the best doctor in Victoria and
1 would pay any fee be demanded. When :
I l<i't /or Comnx she had as kind. faithful |
and devoted a nurse as ever lived, I nl
poor fellow he had the misfortune to love
her with all his heart and soul. Ha gave
up bis work and waited upon her night
and day, and never hesitated to spend bis
iast dollar or borrow from bis friends to
benefit her.
How well be was rewarded for his noble
levotion, when be led the bedside for a
few moments to go to town to the drug
lore to get some medicine fnrthe patient,
n bis return be found the door closed up
n him and was informed that he was no
longer needed, in fact got the G B on the
spot. "Oh, what gratitude." l'.ut tht
poor tool has been useful since then, he
bad i'M laid awav for a suit of clothes, but
when she needed anything he drew on it,
mil would if it were his heart's blood if
he thought that it would henont her, with
the Inst $12..'ill he was allowed to pay one
of the doctor's hills. "No danger of you
Ining anything of that kind." but if you
had the spirit of n louse you would not
have allowed him to do so, "you inusl he
landy." When I came to the, conclusion that she could not get well there. I
wrote to her and told her so, and made
the necessary arrangements for her com
fort and lift my business here to go over
mil bring her.'nnd engaged the best dec-
tors on the mainland to attend, and again
got everything that be or anv one else
suggested for her   benefit.    When    I was
In Nanaimo and she wrote to me telling
e that she was better and the doctor
id that she might return home, and
begged Of Die to come at once nnd take
her home. I again set mv business aside
mil took a Hying trip over here fur her,
hut she could not come, and I bad to re-1
turn, hut I made arragements lo insure
her comfort on the next hunt. II was duo I
I 1 p.m. but was delayed,and I again set
my business aside and spent .the whole
afternoon waiting to get her home safe,
And of course you took good csie not to I
put yourself tunny trouble or expense,
vein never do. If you bud any shame or
sense of justice alioutynu you would have
known and   conceded Ihe fact   that 1 was
in titled to the ladv's society for that I
light at Least, after doing what I did for her
whilst you remained gloriously inactive,
but you ignorant boor, von took advantage of my absence to take possession of
her room ami would not leave it when she
requested you to do so. When I was at
the house the last time I was in Nanaimo
I was talking to the lady in the parlor
whilst you were in her room listening to
what I said, but, you did not dare to resent it or make your presence known.
You heard me I am sure, for you had but
to open the closet door nnd hesr every
word distinctly, and u man with your
Sense of honor would not hesitate (or n
moment to eavesdrop or do anything else
(.that a gentleman would not stoop to. As
von might not have heard all I will repeat 1
part of what I said. I told the lady that
since I first knew her I nave always en-'
tertained the warmest and purest regard
for her, in fact my love for her was ahnosl
if not wholly, plalonic, for I admired her
for the beauty of her mind and heart
alone, free from the baser or animal passion, for only hrutes in human form that
allow their animal passions to control
them; a true man orgentlenian is governed by reason and intelligence. I told her
that I was now and would be until the
hoar of my death, her most devoted
friend, ever ready and pleased todosnv-
thing that I could for her or her family
that pure and unselfish frienehip could
dictate. Were I a man of your stamp I
would have been glad of the chance that
offered to take revenge on her and forced
hev to   leave   Nanaimo,   but < lod   forbid
that I should  ever sioup in anything si
I far lieneath the dignity of a mm).    I In Flu
contrary   I    was   heartily   sorry   for he
knowing her circumstances  so well, am
■ liegged of her ii apt my oiler, allliougl
1 could have,lone much better by leltini
others have the house, which sin'' knows
; hut she had my word, which is my bond
j as everybody is aware that know- me.    I
I have promised to let her have  the housi
and to do all within toy power for her bill
Impose one condition, (viz) that she neve
J shows you to enter her room or receive ni
[entertain you in   any other   room alone
I for even the smallest space of time, if sin
i does, as true as there is a  God In Ilenvci
I the moment   I hear of it, which 1 sureh
ifcivill. I will, if absent from Nanaiino, telegraph her notice to leave the bouse, am1
will enforce it, and she knows that I
mean wbnt I say. Kiiowning the conditions, if yon have any nine love or n -
card for her. "which I doubt verv much,"
I for such as you know not whal pure am'
' unselfish love is. However. If you do no'
Wish to injure her. you will keep nwn\
from there, and allow her to koephei
premise, for I will ki dp my word let tin
consequence he what it may.   And now
sir, in conclusion let me state I am proud
to any thai I am a native born American
nnd ns such am ever ready to accord tin
respect and protection ductile fair sex
from n gentleman,   Another trait in tin
American character is that they fear ni
man, and bend lo none but God, or hif
grandest work, (viz) a true and nobli
unman, and as a rule arc polite, courteous
and accommodating. If I have offended
vou by my plain language, von will find
me In Nanaimo   about   pay-day.   when
will be pleased  to accord j   nnv satis

rheumatism will prevent nic from n oet-
big you with the weapons which notun

handle a revolver or rifle. God did not
create all men physically equal, bill Ooll
of revolver fame, did, if they have am

about that time and I promise I will not
disappoint you, fori know that you have
courage, for I have heard you call the bull

a reading room, or free library in this
city. Its need is absolute, and is daily
becoming more apparent. A free public
library Is tbe home of true democracy,
where all classes without the distinction
of wealth, birth or religiou may have
equal facilities of learning from youth to
age. It is the proper complement of our
system of free public schools which are
established only for definite terms of life.
In it there are no limitations of age, color,
social standing or religious opinten. All
are privileged alike to share tbe fellowship
of its beoks ami drink from its fountain of
knowledge. As Holmes bappilv expresses
it:
' 'Behind this ever opea gate,
No pikes shall fence a crumbling throne;
No lackey cringe, nor courtiers wait,
Thin palsce is the people's own."
No more useful service could be ren-
dersd to this city by the men who have
prospered here, than through liberal contributions of money to provide tbe c|ty
with u good public library. It would lie
the best evidence of tbe prevailing intellectual culture and social virtue of the
city. It would be the visible sign of the
culture of our people, which we may
justly claim to be as high as that of any
other city on the Paei6c coast. We have
so doubt that for many of our people, a
good library is olie of the things we lack.
We ahauld have a full collection of literature and science within the reach of ill
citizens, and the common possession of
all.
The latest fact of science, the last work
on education and religion, political economy and social science should be furnished to the public. Such a library once
started weald he the recipient of gifts and
bequests and grow with the growth of tbe
city. We trust that the meveaient which
has begun for the establishment of a
public library and reading room, will not
flag, but that it will be fostered and urged
by these who have interested themselves
in its formation as well as insisted upon
by others. Its establishment would introduce a new form among the influences
which strenghten and support the social
order.. It would lend a new impulse to
intelligence and virtue, and the social,
moral and intellectual improvement of the
whole people would undoubtedly be tht
result. :
EDITORIAL   NOJES. '
The Proposal of tbe faster, Dr. Tanner,
toll* buried alive for four weeks, and at
the end ef that period to resume consciousness, Is certainly a sensational one.
It provokes very naturally, perhaps, the
(haatly comicalities which arc going the
rounds in the shape of suggestions as to
the completeness with which the job of
Interment should bo done. It may be iu
order also to suggest that the experiment
would be more satisfactory if be would try
ere station instead of burial. Yet there is
a serious view to be taken of the matter,
Those who aid and abet the doctor in his
experiment, will share his glory if be shall
carry ant his plan of resuming conscious-i
ness; but if be should fail they will find
themselves behind the liars on a charge
of homicide.
That enormous sums of money are spent
in elections is a matter of common notoriety. The assertion that tbe Republican
National Committee sent a hundred ami
lifty.llioin.and dollars just before the clecJ
tion for use in N. Y. City has never been)
denied. "It is claimed," says Coveruor
Hill, of New York, in his recent meBSige
te the Legislatire, "That at least a huti-i
dred thousand dollars were expended in
the Twentieth and Twenty-iourtli Congressional districts in this State." We
hear of judges paying ten, twenty snd
even fifty thousand dollars to secure their
re-election. It la no uncommon thing for
rich candidates to pour out money like
water.

Canton, Ohio, March 8.—In answering
the demurrer of the Reporter Printing
Company and ex-.Tucge Lathnrs In the
damage suits brought against them fo-
$80,000 by Paul field and William Yolk-
man in the Common liens, Judge Rily
yesterday decided Ihat it was not libel for
a newspnper to publish a man before the
world as a bastard' The arlitie for which
the suit was brought the plaintiffs were
stamped as of illegitimate birth. Judge
RUyheld that "Libel was that which
would bring one into ridicule, contempt
or hatred and that which would tend to
degrade one against whom it was directed. A number of His Honor's associates
on the bench had been horn out of wedlock but they stood high in social ami
legal circles, if anything being of Illegitimate birth elevated them The decision
has caused a great stir in the legal fraternity.
