A large number of ilelival.es were.
in attendance yesterday morning,
liev. Thomas Crosby, Ihe veteran missionary to the Indians on tint Pacific
coast, conducted a prayer and praise
service. Dr. Carman, general superintendent, gave a thrilling address on
moral, social and spiritual questions.
He was delighted with tlie progress
made iu this province and especially
in the Kootenays of which the city
of Nelson is the center. He was
glad to notice that the outlook in tlie
church was bright. The Twentieth
Century fund had been a grand success VI,200,000 bad been subscribed,

a course in aits in Victoria University, Toronto, he graduated li. A.,
in 1802, and has taken a deep interest
in the publication of "The Recorder"
whicli is published at Victoria in the
Interests of B. C. Methodism. Last
year he was elected secretary of conference which position he has rilled to
the entire satisfaction of the conference, and hns been raarkad out for a
higher position iu tho church. Centennial church, Victoria, li. C, is
proud of its pastci and he is a general favorite with the young people of
that church and of the conference,

officials enforce the law
regarding potlaches, which aro detrimental to the true interests of the Indians.
As thc ranks of the ministers had
not heen broken by death, the conference united in singing   the Doxology.
A report was read from Kev. Dr.
Williams, of Montreal, pastor of St!
���lames Methodist church, regarding
Ihe linaneial standing of that church.
Gratifying information was given
and it is understood that the full

that while fighting cleanly and coolly
li ill' could not get Hie steam into his
delivery and as the contest was supposed to be for a knock-out if possible,
not merely a spurring match for
points, thu referee was probably justified in not awarding (loft' the purse.

really lacked t>e ability as a lighter
to linisli his man.    On the   whole   the
fight was   a   disappoint! it   from   a
spectacular standpoint. Both men
were iu lo will and in this respect the
promoters must have credit for pulling
oil' the. contest strictly on its merits.
Goff's friends thought his waiting
game would result in tlie undoing of
Burns and the latter's admirers figured thai an advantage in weight
would offset superior science and that
Burns would have a chance in the
course of the light to land a knock-out
blow similar to tlie one he administered in Rossland and that bis capacity for punishment would carry him
along until the opportunity lo get in
the oulininu'ing blow occurred. Doth
factions were disappointed, anil as far
as this feeling is concerned the eon-
test may be properly described as failing to come np to tlie expectations of
the men who had averaged up the
chances.
Burns got into the ring first with
bis trainer tlcorgo Lawler and Billie
Phi Hips as supernumerary, lie was followed shortly by dolt' wbo entered
witli bis brother Bill Holt' and Dan
Cronin of Nelson, at 11.03, Halt an
hour was spent in adjusting the gloves

the gong rang and the contest commenced. A. Allen, a stranger, ollici-
atcd as rclcrce, and Dan Thomas of
Rossland held the watch, with Harry
Ashcroft and Ralph llarron ns assistant timekeepers, l'rioi to tlie arrival
at the ring Lawler raised a kick over
the stake money. Burns, he said,
wanted the "rocks" deposited with
someone' he knew, hut the management, backed up by the crowd who
heard the ilisciis.si.in, refused to take
the purse out of the bauds of the original stake holder, Charles Ink.

About seventy Rossland sports came
over to witness the Burns-lioff mill,

heard of arranging another meeting

"Not Guilty," was the verdict of
the jury in the Des Revieres murder
tiial yesterday afternoon. At fi
o'clock, the twelve good men and true
returned to the court room, after only
fifteen minutes deliberation. The
verdict did not come as a surprise to
those who had heard the evidence.
In referring to Ihe summing np of
Mr. Justice Drake, tt well known le
gal visilor remarked on the cxcccil'ng
fairness of Ilis Lordship's ehnrge to
the jury, nnd predicted an acquittal
before the decision of the jury was
rendered, his legal acumen being demonstrated by the facts.
During thc course of the examination, the demeanor of the prisoner
wus practically the same as on the
previous session, except that perhaps
he was a shade paler nnd indicated a
little more anxiety. This, however,
was only natural under the circumstances, but apart from this, his bearing through the whole course of the
trial was such as wonld only lead
one to suppose that he anticipated no
other verdict than the one found by
the   jury.    At   the close of   the   trial

severely cross examined witness in
regard to the omission of the statement that deceased had called prisoner a d���d liar in his eivdenee at the
preliminary trial. Upon witness reasserting the statement, Mr. Davis
contended that it wus very strange
that P. E. Ballet and Coroner Jakes
had each omitted the statement from
witnesses' depositions, and preferred
to think that their written statement
of evidence, taken down at the time
was more to be depended on than
thnt of a man relying exclusively up
on his memory.
Percy Qodenrath, journalist of

that he knew both prisoner and deceased, but not personally. He Identified the body ol Hurry Rowand in
the cabin, but only gathered the story
from overhearing prisoner and anv
other   available   source   foi the paper
he represented.
Dr. Poster, of (ireenwood, testified
as to the nature of the wounds found
on the person of deceased, and speculated as to the way in which they
had been Inflicted. Hud found a
match in thc mouth of deceased,
which led him to the opinion that
there had been no struggle.
At 1. o'clock the evidence for the
crown was all in and the defense began by the prisonci being placed on
the witness stand. Stop by step the
prisoner's story was dieted, aud in a

fate if his knife had   not been handy

backwards on the stove and  in trying I
to liberate himself was tlirown across t'
the font of the bed.    By this time de- \
ceased hud his other   hand  on piison- *
er's   throat   and prisoner   came   neur K.
being   strangled.    Unable  to cry   fori
help, antl feeling that lie was "a gon- II
er," he changed the   knife  he held in i
his right hand to his   left   and struck I
Ins untagonist, not   knowing   at   the \
time   whether   the blow  was   in   the 2
back or   the side.    Prisoner   felt   his I
strength waning fast   when   deceased ��J
suddenly relaxed  his   grasp  and   fell
heavily to the   floor.    Ue called Jones
to go for tlie doctor, and   then finding
Ilis senses returning, braced   up  to go
himself,   He weut across to the Wind-  ��
soi hotel and asked them to send for a
doctor.    Several of the hoys went over
wilh 11 i 111 to thc cabin,and he requested them to leave everything as it   was
until after   tile coroner's Inquest.    As
thoy departed ho locked   up tli. cabin,
put the key iu   his   pocket and   went
over to the Windsor hotel, prepared to
five himself up to justice.    The prosecution   then   rehearsed   the scuffle
cross-questioning   the   prisoner,   but
loft his evidence practically unshaken
and at 15 minutes   to   two   the   court
adjourned for luncheon.
After   luncheon   the   prisoner   was
further   cross-examined,   aud   Dr. La
Han nnd other witnesses   were   heard
in tho defence.
At a quarter   past  three Mr.   Davis
oininonced his appeal to the jury and

INTO   ALIEN   HANDS.
The New Vnrk .lournnl is not one
of the newspapers to which the intelligent publio go for inforinution on
whicli absolute reliunce is to he placed, it is of the yellow variety, and
often manufactures .'.news by the minified process of a lively Imagination.
All its news is not of this character, of course, for if it were even tlie
dullest Constituents would find it out
in time anil the popularity of.tbe paper would surfer. lis readers are kept
enteituined in trying to distinguish
between the natural and thc artificial
product, often with the result thnt
they are obliged to confess themselves
at 11 loss. The other day it published
an article in whicli the unqualified
statement wns made thnt Mr, James
J. Hill and Mr. Plerpont Morgan bad
just completed a deal by whicli they
were obtaining control of the Canadian Pacific railway. The Northern
Pacific, the Canadian Pacific, and the
Great Northern were to become one
concern, aud "in some manner" not
.specified tlie Urnnil Trunk was also to
be included. This would bo "very
startling information if it were not
N. Y. .lournnl information,
Canadian Pacific Htoeli went np to
117, the highest point ever reached,
just at the time this deal was being
consummated in the columns of tlie
New York paper. At frequent intervals (luring the p.iHt two months it
bus been said that Mr. Ilill was buying Canadian Pacifies, and that be
wns to become associated with that
Compuny. There is the possibility
thut these stories have some foundation. A few weeks ago one of them
appeared with such circumstance Hint
Mr. Shaughnessy did not think it unbecoming his ilignity as l'resident to
permit it to bo made the subject of
an interview. It was said thut Mr.
Hill anil others weie endeavoring to
get a. controlling iniluence in the
ntTairs of the Canadian Pacific. This
of course was received with a smile;
stories of this kind, whether true or
false, usually are at first. The smile
signified nothing, but Mr. Sliuugl
nessy added to it that he did not
believe there was anything in the report. Of course, he said, money could
do anything; it was possible to buy
up a majority of the stock, but he
thought there were few tilings in the
world more improbable than that the
control of the Canadian Pacific should
be bought away from the present
holders. Altogether he gave the impression that the story was without
foundation, and that there was no
danger of tho Canadian Pacific falling into alien hands. There is no
doubt Mr.  Shaughnessy   wus   sincere.
Money can do anything. It is doing
some wonderful things these days. If
there is enough loose Canadian Pacific
stock lying about for sale, it is possible for Mr. Hill and Mr. Morgan or
others to get possession of it and control thc Hoard, If they did this they
would practically be making it an
American road. Canada hns put
about sixty millions into the Canadian Pacific, partly in order to cement
Confederation and partly to serve the
Empire by establishing a new route
to th. Farthest East. Railway manipulators and stock gamblers may agree
on a dent, hut before the Canadian
Pacific passed into alien contro', the
Canadian Government aud Parliament
would probably have something to
say. The people who contributed
those sixty millions will insist that
the road shall remain Canadian, let
the stock go where it will.

GOOD FOU JOSEPH.
"Mr. Joseph Martin," says Tlie
Vancouver Province, "was elected as
a representative of the city of Vancouver in the Local Legislature. Mr.
Maitin is not the representative of
the City of New Westminster." It is
added that this information is given
for the benefit of Mr. Martin's constituents. That can hardly he, however, as liis constituents are fully and
perpetually aware of the   fact.    It   is
Intended for the benefit of Mr. Martin
himself, who is assumed to have forgotten what constituency he represents. The occasion of the reminder
arose through or from the following
circumstances: Certain individuals
in Vancouver moved to have a Mining Recorder's otlice established in
that city. The Conncil was induced
to pass a resolution favoring such a
step, and a copy of this resolution
was duly forwarded to Mr. Martin,
with the request that he would back
it up with such intliience 'as he could
command. Mr. Martin implied that
he was not in favor of the proposition; that already there wus an ollice
of the kind at New Westminster und
that it wus not inconvenient for persons in Vancouver wishing to do business with it. He thought it was
rather a small matter, and benealh
the dignity of the larger city, to endeavor to rob the other of the oflice.
Hence the paragraph in The Province
which opens with thc above quoted
sentences.
Mr. Martin bus many enemies, and
he is not at all'a likeable person; but
he would soon command very general
respect and admiration if he wore to
continue to act tlie same manly part
as he has done in this instance. It
is observed as a characteristic of politics or public sentiment in this
Province that a man is expected to
support any and every proposition intended for the advantage of the place
ill whicli he lives, whether moral or
immoral, just or unjust. If anything
is mooted for the Kootenays, for
example, in which there is 0 promise
of the least local benefit, we are all
bound to shout for it, even although
opposed to every principle of right or
reason. Vancouver wus suffering
nothing from the want of a Mining
Record olliee in that city; those
having occasion to use one had it at
their very doors almost in the office
at Neva; Westminster; Mr. Martin was
above the contemptible theft of taking it from them, and he had the
courage to say so. Should he never
do anything worse than this, he will
be able to make himself more fortunate in bis colleagues the next time
he is commissioned to form a Cabinet.
In Eastern cities rumor is busy
with probable changes ill the Federal
Cabinet. It is said that after the session Mr. Mills, who is Minister of
Justice, will be appointed to the Supreme Court in succession to the late
Judge King. Judge King, however,
was a Maritime Province man, and iu
obedience to the sectionalism that prevails tbe appointment should go to
another of like habitation. Of Mr.
Mills the lawyers must speak of his
legal attainments; but in personal
character and general literary quail-
ch'ations he would adorn the Iionch.
Sir Richard Cartwrlght, it is said,
will go to Government House in Toronto on the expiration of Sir Oliver
Mowat's term. This would be becoming in every respect. Sir Hichard
would make an ideal Lieutenant-Governor. Then it Is said thnt Mr. 'Parte
Is to resign "and take a trln around
tlie world." This is extremely unlikely. There is no money in a trip
around tlie world.
A London cable to a New Y'ork paper deals with the correspondence respecting the King's title, thut issup-
poscil to be in progress between the
Colonial Ollice nnd Ottawa. It is suid
Hint the original intention was to
name the new Confederacy the Empire of Canada, Why it wus not is
thus explained by the cable eorre-
ponilenl: "It wns a sort of British
deference to the American views expressed in the Monroe doctrine. Queen
Victoria and her advisers knew Hint
the American opposition of the duy
would avail itself of Hie proclamation
of the new Canadian Confederation as
an empire, to   assail   the Washington
Government on the plea that it had
permitted a defiance of the Monroe
doctrine, anil would avail itself of
this pretext to inflame public opinion
in this country against the Administration. That is why the word 'Dominion' was substituted at tho last
minute in lieu of the word 'Empire'
of Canada." Until better informed,
we shall take leave to doubt every
word of this.
Said Mr. Maxwell, on his return to
Vancouver the other day: "I think
I have something to say about Mr.
Dunsmuir. Most uf the people of the
Province are await that the Premier
and Attorney-General went to Ottawa
lominally in the interests of this
Proivuce. As far as the public are
aware they took for granted the re
turn that was brought down in the
House as a true indication of tlie way
they impressed the interests of the
Province upon the authorities at Ottawa. It is not in my line to ciitiolze
what has been done, still the Prem
ier has net disclosed the fact that the
chief tiling lie wanted when there
was a grant of $10,000 per mile for 860
miles of a road on Vuncouver Island
in which he himself was directly interested. As far as I could learn, if
the Dominion Government had granted that subsidy, tlie rest of the demands made by him might have gone
anywhere. He contended that that
road was a national undertaking,
which is ridiculous." The Victoria
Cclonist, speaking for Mr. Dunsmuir
���as it has good right to do���says Mr.
Maxwell is ull wrong, that, iu fact,
he is lying. That may be, but the
Impression is growing that Mr. Dunsmuir is iu politics for the good of
Mr. Dunsmuir's pocket.

"When the Laurier Government
came into power," says the Victoria
Times, "there were only nine Liberals
in the Senate. Now the Conservatives, if all their forces were mustered, would only have a majority of
nine. It is doubtful.if all the members are capable of taking their seats,
nnd the chances are that even now
the Government on ordinary occasions
will have a majority. The crooked
things are being made straight gradually." When the Laurier Government came into power there were
more like nineteen Liberals in the
Senate. But let that pass. Whatever
the number, the rapid and substantial
increase of Liberal members has put
an effectual stop to the cry for the
abolition of the Senate. With the
prospect of a Liberal majority, the
Senate has become one of the most
popular institutions in Canada.

Ves, August Flower still lias the lar-
gest sale of any medicine In tlie civilized world. Your mothers and grandmothers never thought of using any
thing else for Indigestion or Biliousness. Doctors were scarce, and they
seldom heard of Appendicitis; Nervous
Prostration or Heart fa/'m-e. eto,
They used August Flower to clean out
the system and stop fermentation of
undigested food, regulate the action
of the system, and Hint is all they
took when feeling .lull ami bad with
headaches and other aches. Vou only
need a few doses of Green's August

A "KNOCKER."
I .mi)! On Many Tallica.
People will "sine;'' themselves with
coffee and then bunt around for mtd-
icine to cure them of the trouble
coffee produces, but they kct'D on
drinking coffee anil making new dis
eases right along. Tbat is, some people do There are thoughtful people,
however, and tbeir number is growing
greatly every month, wbo prefet
good, sturdy health to sickness, unit
they leave off coffee because it is a
drug that produces disease.
Many people bave to learn tbat this
is true by hard knocks, and tbey get
the knocks all right if tbey stick to
coffee.
Mrs. Ida Jl. Nowyce, of Anderson.
aS. C., says, "For years or more before leaving off coffee and beginning
the use of I'ostum Food Coffee, my
healtb became very much impaired,
as I discovered afterward, from
coffee drinking. I suffered from
shortness of breath, pains about tin-
heart, anil the slightest exercise completely exhausted me, .My digestion
was bail anil gas wonld form in the
stomach rendering me wr.tebcd, ano
my life 11 burden. Medicine did not
help the trouble. I was on the eve of
giving up In despaii when my attention was I attracted to tlie statement
that coffee caused some of tbe svmp
toms that I had. I determined to abandon it and try I'ostuni' Food Coil'ee.
I had the Postum well made and
the result during the pust twelve
months has been something wonder*
fill. All of the old troubles left. 1
have been in excellent health, and mj
friends all notice It and speak of it
I never lose an opportunity of tell
ing tbem that thc change in m\
health wus caused by leaving off .-
drug called coffee and taking ,111 a
liquid food drink like I'ostum.
No argument from any source coulil
convince me to tbe contrary1 of what
I have found out. I bave seen niuel
the same results 111 my  sister's famtl.i
an. among other acquaintances,"
