ihe Provincial trovernment the old Pro-;

lind that a small expenditure by the:
City Council would place this in proper
conilition for the detention of prisoners
1 parly of ten men. After troublesome
search they found poor Miller's head
and some fragments nf Uesh, which were
given decent burial; no trace of Berger's
reinai .s were discoverable. The supposition is that the two men hatl taken
the explosive from the tunnel, where it
was usually kept, 10 the house for the
pniposeof thawing it out, the tragedy
resulting in some myslerious way. The

-.their calling seriously.     When
.lie resolved to enter the Church,
lie did not do so with the object
■,«f getting a /at Jiving; and when
he did (get a li-viug, he diid not
Jeave jkjffi work to be done by the
'•Curat-.-,, i«iiid himself settle down
*to eiijioy :the income.      Among
all   Use t'Jergy iu or about the
fashionable suburb of liourgois-
town, he wus thc hardest  worker, the most generous giver, antl
the  most .frugal   liver.      Yet
strange (f-erhmps) to say, he was
regarded   with  respectful aversion by  )iiis  wealthy  stock-jobbing, cetiipany-promotiiig., s.hop-
keepinjj hearers and their wives;
and wi)'ih suspicion and disfavor
even by iiis own brethren ofthe
cloth.    Among the poor, indeed,
he   was  adored  as such a good
friead   .*.jf tlie ipoar deserved to
be,   but   there   his   popularity
•might be said to begin and end.
There    were    various    good
grounds for .the dislike  towards
him manifested   by   "the smart
:people" and the clergy of Bour-
. goistown.    With the former the
■ aversion was largely  the  result
'tpf flouted love.    When the only
son   of h-ady Fanny Stedfast,
'that queen of the   fashionable
world, and of that wealthy magnate, the lute Charles   Stedfast,
came among them, their enthusiasm   knew   no   bounds.    He
united in his person everything
-'thatthey udin.iredand venerated.
Through his mother he was connected with half the noble families of England.     Through   his
father he was a leading partner
in the   great banking house of
Stedfast & Holden.      in   other
words,   he   was veil born and
•wealthy—in   both respects in-
•comparably beyond  his  venerated predecessor, the Kev.   Mr.
Sawter,  who   was   poor     and
jonly   a   Baronet's   cousin.    If,
ih'e'n,   .they   loved Mr.  Sawter
how much more should (they lov
Mr. Stedfast?     They were prepared   to   adore  him—to go to
'.church   regularly and   worship

in 'a woman's handwriting, and
that, after receiving I hem, Mr. Stedfast would often appear for several

would sometimes, in reply to an
unsigned telegram, rush off unex-

From time to time he ran up to

This constituted another
grievance with the fashionable
people. Many of them were
looking forward to meeting Lady

clearly home to themselves and
the world their own delisiencies.
At first there were hopes that
as soon «s the fervor of youth
wore off, Mr. Stedfast would he-
come as other parsons are. "Let
us get him married," said the
Rev. Mr. Earthenware. "Ifthat
doesn't bring him to his senses,
I don't know what will." No
doubt Mr. Earthenware made
this suggestion in the general
interest, but some of his fellow-
clerics shrewdly suspected that
he had also an eye to private advantage. At any rate, Mr.
Earthenware had seven fine,
strapping daughters, who were
not 'going oil'' quite to his or
his wife's satisfaction. Indeed,
although thoy had many 'idmir-
ers among the young men of
Bourgoistown, so far, they were
only admirt'd, not appropriated.
Now, Mrs. Earthenware, with
feminine sagacity, felt that if
Mr. Stedfiiist only set a proper
example, soon there would be
such a 'run' upon her daughters
that even her large stock would
scarcely satisfy it.
But Mr. Stedfast was not to be
caught by the Earthenware
family. When he saw how the
wind was setting, with his usual
straightforwardness, he let his
mind on the matter be seen. He
tood advantage of a tete-a-tete
with Mrs. Earthenware to state
his views on marriage. While

Young appeared for the Crown and
Air. H. A. Simpson for the defence.
Mr. Young addressed the jury for
the Crown. At this juncture the
jury in the Carter case came inlo
the Court room and rendered a verdict of guilty.
Airs. Margaret Hillier, mother of
the little girl, nias sworn.   She said
she  lived  al   No.   6,   Wellington.
She know the prisoner.     He  lived
ahout   150   yards from   her house.
She had lived there ahout six years;
prisoner had been there five or six
years, at least she   thought ahout
that time.      She  reinenihered   the
28th  of   Sept.  last, as a result of
what her daughter told  her.     She
examined   her   and    found   some
scratches on  her  le*.   They  were
similar to what  might   have  been
made l>y finger nails.     They  were
not Weeding.   It was abflut a quarter past five when Katie came  in.
She looked as though she hud been
crying and was excited.     Katie  is
deaf and dumb.     They  communicate with her   by   motions.     The
witness, in answer to the judge, saitl
she did not know the dumh alphabet, nor did the child.
Alary Buily, swum, said she  resided at No. 6, Wellington, and was
the wife of Richard   Baily.     She
knew Katie Hillier,   as   she lived
near the witness.    She  also knew
the prisoner, who was their nearest
neighbor.    Thompson   had   lived
near them for about six years.   On
Sept. 28th last she was going to the
tank for water (plan of house-, etc.,
admitted and shown to the jury)
about 5 o'clock.   She heard crying
in Thompson's cabin;on her wav to
the tank.    She listened at the coal-
house window.     She   did  not see
anything.   Site met Annie Hillier
at the tank and told her  to go untl
see whal was the   matter.     Annie
went   to   Thompson's   front   door
while witness remained at the tank.
Witness saw   Katie   at   the  back
dour nf Thompson's   house.     She
itood near the wall.    Witness  did
not see any more and that   was all
she knew ahutit the matter.
Cross-examined hy Air. Simpson
for the defence she answered—I did
not sec Thompson at all that day.
I saw the little girl some time in the
afternoon. I did not kn.iw anything against Thompson. lie had
always been a good neighbor.
Annie Hillier gave evidence
which we do uot deem it wise to
Richard Baily also gave evidence
to having seen the prisoner in his
cabin about the lime alleged offence
was committed.
Ci instable Stephenson, sworn,
said he arrested the prisoner on the
evening of the 28th of September.
Prisoner was sober. Wil ness was
in Thompson's house. The bed was
a few feet from the door.
Thc prisoner on being put in the
box said he was horn at Glasgow,
and was 77 years of age. He had
been in B. 0. since 1858. He knew
Katie Hillier. She often came to
his cabin and he sometimes gave
her biscuit. On the 28th of Sept.
he had some drink. He bad con*
siderable drink at the Abbotsford
and at the Wellington. He had a
cold so he took some rum; it always cured him of cold.
His L.irdship—Do you often take

Witness did not see Kate Hillier
in his house on the day in question.

NOVEMBER 27,  1896,
The Presentment.
The last, but by no means the
least, important matter which
His Lordship, Justice Walkem
had to consider nt tho
Assize Court just closed, was the
presentmeut of the Grand Jury.
It was gratifying to note thai
the iiforesnid honorable body
have done their duty, iu this
particular instance, and done it
well, for a more straightforward
and pointed document it i*> seldom the pleasure of the general
public to peruse. And wc only
JUope .that the several mutters referred to in that presentment
■will be taken up and dealt with
in the same business-like manner that has characterized the
Grand Jury in the performance
of their duty.
We are pleased to notice that
■the first question with which
the presentment deals is the
question .of carting and storing
explosives within the city limits,
.while in transit to other portions
ofthe country.
True (as the Grnnd Jury sets
forth) the Qity Council has passed a by-law prohibiting the
transferring or storing of
high grade explosives within the
.city limits. That the City Coun-
iril has the undoubted right to
make such by-laws there is no
question in the minds of ordinary individuals. Then why is
it that such by-laws are not enforced? Echo answers, why?
Is is because it is difficult to
-obtain evidence to convict the
guilty parties? Not if the Grand
jury tell the truth, for they say
that as much as twenty tons
have been stored on our wharves
at one time, and the quality,
not guntowdek, as llis Lordship seems to suppose, but high
grade dynamite, which, to be
-conservative, means an equivalent of ten tons of
nitro-glycerinc. We can, perhaps, grasp thc situation when
we remember what 4Q0 pounds
of this combustion wus capable
of doing out on the Departure
Buy road a few months ngo.
Twenty   tons    of

We also notice that the Grand
Jury ure agaiu compelled by
force of circumstances to refer to
that monstrosity of a lock-up—
the oltl Bastion—notwithstanding the fact thai the City Council have leased the old provincial
jail and nre paying a yearly

It would be reasonable to suppose that a jail that had been
serviceable to the provincial
government until a short time
ago, ought to answer the purposes of a city lock-up in preference to that relic of antiquity
—the Hudson Buy Bastion. Can
we dare to hope that the recommendation of the Grand Jury
will be immediately acted upon,
und that they will not have to
again refer to this matter in
their next presentment?
Editorial Notes.
In ihis i.-sue of the Mail will he
found an advertisement calling for
the conveyance of mails twice a
a week between Nanaimo and Comox, with a service to the intermediate points. This will be welcome news, not only to the residents of Comox and vicinity, who
will he directly benefited by this
proposed service, but Nanainio will
ub:o derive benefits by being made
the distributing point. It will also
be a mutter of importance to the
general travelling public having
business with these places, from the
fact that the company securing the
contract must run on schedule
time, a thing altogether unknown
in the past, the steamers of the E.
& N. Railway Co. having been run
to suit the convenience of the Company, no matter how much the
public may be inconvenienced
thereby. Another thin-gin connection with this suhjeet is the probable competition, as it is altogether
likely that other companies will

Halifax, Nov. 24.—Although the
Canadian authorities nt this port
profess not to believe that the steamer Bermuda Will attempt to curry
a cargo of arm--and ammunition tn
ibe insurgents in Culm, precautions
ure being taken to prevent vessels
from titling out uny such expeditions in Canadian waters. It was
learned to-day thut the Spanish
consul -general at Montreal in tin*
interests of his government lust
night notified Huu. L. H. Dnvies,
minister of murine and fisheries at
Ottawa, that the Bermuda bad carried a filibustering expedilion-to
Cuba, ami to day the registrar of
shipping here received a telegram
from Mr. Dnvies requesting him
to exercise the utmost caution to
prevent an expedition of this character from leaving imrt. Tbe fact
Ihat lhe vessel is lying deep in lhe
water, it is believed, led the consul
general to communicate wilh tbe
government. The Spanish consul
at this port is also narrowly watching the vessel.
A customs official has made a
