Eleventh  Year
No Prospect or a Settlement
of the strike Yet In
An American Compares Kru
ger  to William  of
Pittsburg,   Pa.,   July     81.- -"Hope
deferred   maketh   the   heart    si'ok.''
This is exprO'sive of   thc  feelings  of
the majority of   Pjttsbiu-gora   tonight
outside   of   the   inner   circles of   the
Amalgamated  Asssociation  executive
board, who have bi 3n <onsidering the
proosals  for a   scttlon ent of the steel
strike   fjr   two   days  wii'iout agree
ment. How the members of the board
feel is known to no   one  on  the   outside.   The second day of the executive
board's    deliberations    was    notable
for the  many  rumors  iu   circulation
nnd  for this conspiouoc. oefitll of results.   The absence   of  t.i'ee  of   the
principal members of tbo board would
tend to show that the members  differ
in their   ideas of the peace  proposals,
and that in ordor to   satisfy   all, Secretary Williams had been sent to New
York   tn   seek   modifications  at    the
hands of Messrs. Morgan and Schwab,
while Assistant   Secretary Tigne   and
Trustee Morgan   had   received a co.i-
mission to visit   Senator Banna to secure   his   aid   in   bringing about   an
amicable arrangement.    No,ring tangible   could   bo   learned    concerning
these supposed trips, however, and all
talk in relation to them must  remain
merely conjecture uutil the   rolurn of
these members and their lips  are  unsealed.    Newspaper   men   ;n theii endeavor to got news eoccerning the pro
gross of the conference spent   a weary
day on thc sidewalks around the heart-
quarters,   orders   having   been issued
that reporters should not be  admitted
during session of the board.   The conditions    of   affaiii'1 tonight,   may   be
summed up in th's para;, jpb.
The steel workers strike against thc
United States Steel Corporation is
still unsettled. The status of the contest is unchanged,"the men are lighting for every advantage while the companies are stengthening their position
as ranch as possible. The conference
of the members of the general executive board of the Amalgamated Association which was expected to Bettle
the trouble one way or the other, today adjourned at 0 o'clock tonight,
without accomplishing its purpose.
San Francisco Cal., duly 31. There
wero but lew changes in the local situation today. Both employers and
strikers aro standing firm, and each
side claims confidence in winning
without drawing on its reserves. No
serious disturbance of tho peace has
occurred. The strikers aro observing
strictly the injunction to abstain from
violence. Thc employers hold out no
hope for a speedy settlement of the
troubles, say there is nothing in sight
but a hnrd battle. The intimation
was made that the steamship companies will if uece.-sary, bring men to
San Francisoo from other points in
the United States.

Kruger, who received him cordially
Mr. Van Shack, his wife,and Mr. Kru

Humors of War Among the Little
States Bordering on Austria.
London, July 31.���Nothing bas boen
received here to confirm the news contained in the despatch of the Pall Mai!
Gazette, from Buda-Pest and outside
of Vienna, scant attention is paid to
tlie alleged political intrigues whicli
arc asserted to be at the bottom of the
present agitation in Albania. Accord
ing to a sensational Austrian news
paper, Italy and Montenegro started
the Mussulmans in Albania on then
pre ent anti-Christian campaign with
the view of obtaining an exce:,e of
some kind for intervention, the object
being to checkmate the Austrian
priority claim on Albania, iu the
event of its separation from Turkey.
Italy has several times denied the:*
allgod designs on Albania. The Italian papers asieit that its only objeet
is to prevent Germany from utilizing
the Dnebund for the purpose of securing German predominance in the Balkans and to re-establish the equilibrium oh the Adriatic, which has been
disturbed by Austria's supposed designs on Albania. There is no indtci-
tion at present, however, of the Balkan question being brought up in a
serious manner in the immediate future.
Naples, July 31.���The bulletin issued tonight regarding Signor Fran
cesco Ciispi announces that he has
suffered a relftpse and is weaker. His
terrible struggle for breath can be
heard even in the roadway of the
street where he is residing. The members of his family and of his two secretaries are around his bed. It is
reported that the family have refused
priestly offices. The latest words pronounced by Signor Crispi were on
hearing the telegrams from King Victor Emmanuel and Dowager Queen
Marguerite: "Oh, God; good king,

The Cornwall  Canal Badly
Damaged by a Steam
Freight Rates Between Mont
real and Britain Very
Cornwall, Ont., July 31.���Four lock
gates in the Cornwall canal were
curried away today by the steam
barge Hebron. Navigation will be
delayed a couple of days at least, as
all vessels coming up the St. Lawrence have to use the canal to avoid
the Oalops rapids. Vessels going
down river will not be hindered; as
even schooners, etc., arc towed dowr
the rapids.
Montreal, July 31.���The ocean rates
from .Montreal to Great Britain are
lower at present than for years. Corn
is being carried to Glasgow for six
pence a qua.-ier. Rates are an per
cent lowor than last year. The reason given is that buyers in Great
Britain are holding back waiting for
a break in the price of grain, only
ordering enough to keep them   going.

Wa.-bington,    July   31.���Up   to   the
hour when tbe departments closed today the state department had not called on the navy department for a ship
to go into Venezuela waters. In
view of the serious condition of affairs
there and the unsettled condition in
tbe neighboring republics of Colombia
it ts not improbable that an American
warship will be sent to the scene of
trouble for the protection of American
interests. I" a ship is called for.
some difficulty might be experienced
in finding a suitable vessel for the
mission. About tbe only ship available at this time is the small gun boat
Maclnas. fitting at the Boston navy
yard. Tbat vessel, however, would
not he ready to Bail for about two
weeks. There is not a single American
warship in Southern waters. In case
of extreme urgency one of the battleships now in commission, of course
would be sent.
Atlanta, Ga., July 31.���Governor
Chandler satd today he had not agreed
to let Jeffries and Ruhlln fight noxl
October in Savannah. "I have co authority to license prize fights in this
state," said the governor. "Anv
gentleman may come into Georgia
and depart unmolested, unless he
while here violates thc law. In such
cases he will be held and punished
for his crimes. There is no law
against prize fighting in Georgia and
Bhould the contest take place the participants could only he arrested on a
charge of assault and battery.
London, August 1.���"I am informed

Pittafleld, Mass., July 31.���E. L. Fob-
burg, the father of May Fosburg.

Only  Booty a  Oold Watch
Taken From the Engineer.
Chioago, 111., July 31.���The Baltl-
mo.-e & Ohio passenger train from the
east tonight was held up oy five masked men at 8 o'clock between Edgemore
and Grand Calument Heights, tndi
ana, 31 miles out from Chicago. One
of the mail cars which contained no
money was dynamited and wrecked.
The attempt at robbery was made after tiie two mail cars had beeu detached from the train and rrn a quarter of
a mile ahead. The failure of the robbers to make a rfch haul was due to
the fact that the express car which
contained the train's treasure was in
an unusuul place. It was the third
oa.' in the train. ALer wrecking the
mail car and obtaining no booty the
robbes disappeared in the darkness
without attempting to rectify their
mistake. The only loot they carried
away with them as a result of their
adventure was the gold waioh rf the
engineer. The train was the New
York and Washington vestibuled limited. Most of the trainmen were shot
at and had nairow escapes 'roro the
bullets. No person was inured eil-er
by the dynamite or firearms. Tne
train was running at. a high rate of
speed as it pa.sed Calnmet Heights
and immediately after pa-sing out of
sight of the station, Engineer J. W.
Collins saw directly in front of his
engine a large fire on which some
rails had been placed. He slowed
down and as he did so, three men
wcaiing masks jumped into tbe oah
and covered Collins and his fireman,
James Whipple with revolvers. After
mounting into the cab of the engine,
the robbers coveting the engineer and
Bremen with their revolvers, made
them step dow.i and go back the
length of two car-. They ordered the
men to uncouple the first two cars,
which was done. They then hustled
the two trainmen back into the cab
and still keeping the engineer covered with revolvers, directed him to
pull up some distance from the rest of
the train. He did so aud while one
the men remained to guard him, the
others jumped off and hurling dyna
mite burst open the door. Hastily
climbing in to get at the safe, they
were astonished to find that they had
broken into a mail car; Tbey threatened the engineer with death for not
telling them that tbe cars which he
had uncoupled were not expreBs cars
and ordered him to return at once and
uncouple the next car behind the baggage cars. Climbing once more into
his cab, he coupled onto the third car
which tbe fireman was made to uncouple at the rear and and still with
the muzzle of the revolver at his head
was ordered to run down the traok as
before. He d.ew away from the balance of tbe train about the same dis
tance as on the first occasion, and the
robbers still leaving him under the
charge of one of their number, made
for this car. When thoy reached it,
they found to their great wrath, tbat
they bad attacked another m*U oar
and that it contained no money. Tbe
train had been delayed now fully 30
minutes, and fearing that if they delayed it any longer help would be
coming to the train c/ew, the robbers
gave up their attempt to'rob the train
and jumping down ian into a thicket
of scrub oaks at the side of the traok
and disappeared. The train was hastily made up and come on to Chicago,
arriving here somewhat late, a stop
having been made at Whiting to report the robbery.
Tony Leydon Once Moie Proves that
Stone Walls do Not a Prison Make.
It is not a cause of much surprise
that the Provincial jail is such a popular place with the evil doers of the
community, when it is such an easy
matter to got away from it when the
surroundings become uncongenial, or
when confinement becomes oppressive.
On frequent occasions there have been
complaiDts of   the  frequency  of  es-
on the Kokanee at
capes from "durance vile."   Since I In-
new warden has boen appointed   there
has  been   a      markod     decrease    in \
breaks for liberty, but   Tony Leydon, I
who was imprisoned   in the jail on   ii
charge of   previous jail   breaking,   is 	
once more free.    Yesterday a'ternoon,
iat about li.io it was found timt i.ey. RallwayLaborers Raise a Row
, don was nol. al his poit of duty and
at once a hue and cry was raised.
A reward of 82,1 is being offered for
his recovery, a graphic dcsoiiption accompanying the announcement of the
reward. It appears that when he was
supposed to be out in the yard, tho
warden noticed that Tony was not
present. Diligent search was made
for him around the grounds,but without avail. It was then ascertained
that he had made his escape over the
high board fence, which encloses tbe
whole of the jail grounds. A search
party was at once formed and the bush
in the neighborhood was scoured for
the missing man, but without avail
It was concluded that he has mude his
way ac-ois tbo la ;e. In order to
complish such a hasty flight it is
ideut that he had accomplices as he
was in prison garb, and irons. Petrie, who had been ono of his prison
"pals" was let out of jail early this
week, and though he was supposed to
have left the city yesterday morning,
it is surmised tbat he has been an accessory to the ilight. Up to the hour
of going to pre:;s no trace of him had
ben found.

Excellent Hand Concert Last Even n;;
Attracted Crowds to tbe Park.
It was a happy thought of the
Tramway Company to have the band
concerts at the Pain. The first one-
was held last evening and it taxed
the capacity of the ears to the utmost
to carry all those who were anxious to
enjoy the sweet mus c wnich wa:i
made sweeter by the freshness of the
lake breezes. The bund's programme
was excellently arranged and each selection wns a gem in itself. Perhaps
the most popula.- piece was the II
Travotore selection which was rendered with great artistic kU,11. In the R.
M. R. band Nelson has a musical organization Lli.u It uas ever;; rea~0_ l'��
be proud of. In connection with
these concerts, which will be repealed tomorrow and Sunday nights, the
Tramway company wishes it to be
understood that the first announcement that there would be a concert
on Saturday night, was an error. It
was arranged for Sunday night but a
mistake was made and Saturday was
printed on the bills. Thc band will
give its usual concert on Baker street
on Saturday night and the company
never intended to interfere in anyway with the anangements to that
The Nelaon ngaita boys returned to
the city last c<cuing and although
they have not brought buck the prlz?s
they are in the best of spirits. They
express themsehes In eloquent aid
glowing terms of the treatment thev received from the coast people. Tbey
declare that they nover were better
used in their lives. The Vancouver
regatta club used them espocially well
and sent over their senior crew to
coach the Ne.bon crew, and assisted
them in every wa> they were able.
As far as the race wns concerned the
bovs are not at all disconraged at the
result. The Viotoria ciew had their
rudder unshipped and the boat became
unmanageable and fouled with the
Vancouver boat. This euu>,ed a collision with the Nelson boat, and resulted in their oars becoming locked.
Notwithstanding this bad luck at the
beginning of the race, and although
they were nine lengths behind tbe
Portland crew, they succeeded in
pulling up six leugtliB, and when the
race was concluded, they were only
three lengths behind the winning
boat. This in addition to the fact
that the Portland crew had been
practicing for at least a month prior
to the event, against the two week's
training the Nelsou boys had does not
in the least discourage them. They
are confident that if they had the
chance to race the event over again
under favorable conditions, the result
would be differently reported, nnd they
hope to be able to make a record for
themselves next year when the regatta
ts held iu Nelson.

Kaslo, B. C, July 31.���A free fight
on board the steamer Kokanee wus a
feature of that steamer's departure
from here last night for Lardo with
75 laborers foi the Lardo-Arrowhead
road. The men were under contract
to work fork Carlson and Porter on
the new road at $3.50 per day. On
reaching here they were informed that
the rate was $2..50 per day. Some of
them refused to go any further and resorted to force to secure possession of
thei:-baggage and in the general rough
and tumble which ensued committed
oveit acts whioh landed two of them
in the eity jail. About 30 of the number taken up last night returned hero
today on the steamer International, and
as they are all union miners from
Rossland it is tbeir intention to go
into mines here, where there is demand for their services. The trial of
the prisoners is tonight.

London, July 31.���Today, in tho
House of Commons, Mr. Lamm-here,
radical, protested against granting
gratuities to military men while nothing was given to civilians who wero

the opinion of experts at homo anil
abroad, Lord Robert's failure primarily was responsible for the continuance of the war.
Mr. Swift, Irish Nationalist, said
he considered Lord Roborts operations
were conducted with a maximum of
cruelty and a minimum of humanity,
and that his farewell speech was horrible hypocrisy and blasphemy. After further debate for and against the

Free Traders in Great Britain arc
beginning to -'under if. aftur all, the
prosperity of England and tin- unity
of the Empire would not bo better
preserved by the adoption of a policy
of piotection. It is a live topic in
the newspapers and tho eonntiies.sacb
as Canada, that have prospered under
protection, are being used to
strengthen the arguments of the anti-
free traders. One correspondent in The
London Express writes: "K'ee trade
is foredoomed because its successful
work depends upon tho violation of
true economic laws We hive opei.ed
our raiiikets to the fliLod of foreign
produce, buying eagerly of their
waies, and endeavoring to sell ours in
competition with their protected] arti.
eliiH. That we are failing to do the
latter can astound nobody, ln buying
of our neighbors we bave boycotted
home produce. In endeavoring to break
through the barriers of foreign protection we hnve failed miserably.
The proof of the pudding Is in the
eating, ami here we have the proof:
"In 1K40 the United Kingdom
mined 3,51)0,0(10 tons of iron ore, while
the rest of the world mined only 3j900,
000 tons; in 1894 our iron ore production wns only 18,400,000, as against
the colossal aggregate of 40,800,000
tons produced by all other manufacturing countries. Taking the figures
of tbe United Stales, the greatest protective country in the world, we find
them startling indeed. Tile output
of iron ore in tlie States during 1840
was 5110,111)0 to.-is; in 1804 thc output
had increased to 17.000 00(1 tons. The
remarkable growth of the country under protection is further shown bv its
revenue receipts. In I860 the revenue
of the United States was ��11,600,000,
and its expenditure -13,10(1,(10, being
a deficit of 81,100,000, During last
year its revenue was 6116,600,000, and
Its-expenditure B101,600,000, leaving a
balance I" ll�� fnvor of ��15,000,000.
In face of inch facts as these, can protection be dubbed aught else than n
The Board of Trade,meets tonight to
tako steps towards preparing a statement on railway rales to lay before
the Commission on Hie freight question whioh will shortly sit at Rossland. Every member interested iu this
question Bhould attend. Nelson can
be made or marred by freight rates and
is consequently at. the mercy of the
railway companies. Wholesalers and
other shippers here claim Ihey have a
grievance. Now is the timo to formulate tbo charges against tho companies. The Hoards of Trade in tlie East
are preparing elaborate statements
for tlie commission and judging by
the reports of the proceedings a strong
case against the rottds is being proven.
The Nelson Hoard should also take up
the matter of the sitting of the commission. It is announced that the

Manitoba's grain crop is estimated
at 00,111111,01111 hu6hels, the principal
part o" whieh, of course, is wheat.
The failure of crops in other parts ol

a largo amount of wheat will havo to

is usunlly thc case, will assure the
farmers of the Vrairio Province the
most prosperous season they have evor
had us the price should be larger than
that provLiillng for some years.
It is hard to be a hero in the Unit-
eil States. Hobson and Schley were
great heroes after the Santiago naval
fight. The former kissed his reputation away and the latter, it seems, is
about, to have his investigated away.
Of the two methods Hobson probably
adopted the most enjoyable and instead of reviling him the publio must
now give hiin credit for being long

Cornwall and York, the heir apparent

going to cut New York out of his

Mayor Van Wyok might inBult him in
order lo curry political favor with
the element that usually trains in the
Tammany crowd. It is believed that
Mavor Van Wyok is quite capable of
doing siK.11 a thing, but perhaps he
would not Venture to do ho while his

Mayor Flcteln-r yesterday explained
to The Miner that, the City Council In
no way is responsible for the selection of plans 01 letting of tin; contract
for the High School building. The

In-a nominal advisory capacity. Such

The oi-agni/ers aro particular to say
that they only purpose to work by
pcacoi'ul means, and tbat they will
do nothing calculated to givo offence
either to Canada or to Croat Britain,
but to our way of thinking, the formal ion of suuii an orgnnl/jttlon is an
affront, or rather, it would be in any
countiy where international courtesy
is respected, Paul Dana, of the New
York Sun, is ut tlio bead of tho thing,
and wc observe the names of a number of then, prominent in public life,
on the roll of membership. Conspicuous on tha active work ia Francis
Weyland (lien, who has for some
veins past been making himself un-
pleasatly conspi. nous by his misrepre-
sentatlons of Canadian sentiment. He
is now making b^insolf -obnoxious by
telling tin- people cf Camilla, through
the columns of such papers as will
print his eU'iipions,. that the objeet of
the organization above mentionen la
to relieve   Canada    from   tho   burdens
and disabilities attaching to Hritish
Connection, and of course, to promote
the material welfare of the Dominion.
He is endeavoring to gijd his annexa
tion pill in the hope that it will be
more readily swallowed. We arc not
surprised at anything Mr. Olcu muy
say or do, nor is it at all extraordnary
that the New York Sun should endeavor to create any sensational discussion, but it is astounding that
men in responsible public positions,
such as members of the MjKinlcy
cabinet, should lend their countenance
to what is a piece of international impudence.

A Carload of Scenery
In regard to thc above the Rossland
Miner yesterday says: The people
who bought into Itambler-Cariboo
when the shares were selling under
.in had their innings in earnest, and
the movement of the stock will be remembered in Rossland Tor many a day
as one of the most sensational incidents in the history of stock trading.
On Monday BambHr-Carlboo was held
at 43, nut no one would touch it on
���bhange at this figure. Now most of
the dealers regret that they did not
plunge at 13. Yesterday the stock
oneiied strong nnd sales were mnde
at 48K. Tlie sensational incident in
connection with the stock transpired
during tbe afternoon, when the stoek
went up by leaps and bounds to the
highest figure reached since Rambler
started from the 22 mark last, winter.
At a o'clock last evening one firm of
brokers sold a block of 10,000 at 40,
and a few minutes later thoy received
a wire from Spokane stating that a
salo had been made at BO,
,1. VVerldon hns   completed   the season's assessment   work   on the King
stou   group   of   claims   on    Morning
Mountain, belonging   to   T. J.   Sims.
There are four claims  in   the   group,
viz.,   the     Horse    Shoe,     Kingston,
Lucky May and Oro.    The claims   are
situated one above  the   other   on   the
same lead which   is six feet wide   between clearly   defined granite, walls,
with n   porphyry   contact.   The   lend
haB been stripped   for   400 feet on the
Kingston and   Lucky Mny   cluims, on
which the   prinoipal   work   has been
done.    Oi the Kingston a 37 feet tunnel   hns   been   run,     the     paystreak
being 21 inches at   tlie point reached,
The or- is   a   free milling  gold, running from 88 to 816   on   the   average.
On the Lucky   May, some 300 feot below the tunnel on the Kingston, a 24-
foot tunnel hns been   rnn, the ore being of the same quality as that on the
Kingston.    At the Oro   l othing much
haB  been   done except   stripping   the
ledge and running a few shnllow open
cuts,but n shaft will probably he sunk
shortly. The claims are situated n'.out
two miles   from   town, there being   n
good trail   out   to   connect with   the
Granite-Nelson    wagon    road.     The
ledge is easily traeed from the lako up
for n couple of miles and several other
claims have   beon   located   above   and
below   Mr. Sims'   on the   same   lead.
There was a bowling match held
yesterday between two teams of government employees and teams captained by Messrs. 3. F. Weir and .1.
II. Wallace. The challenge originated with the government team who

There will he a special meeting of

It was reported late last evening
hat Tony Leydon had been seen yesterday afternoon taking a tie pass iu
the direction of Robson, An interview with the police gai'e uo eoiilirm-
ation of the story. Jn making his
escape it appears he found a ladder
conveniently placed against thi- high
board fence, tvbloh not only faeili-
tateil his escape, but also led to the
conviction thut he had heen assisted in
bis escape by Home outsioo fiiend.
The police commissioners had a
short meeting nt the city hall ycstoi-
ilav afternoon, to consider the ease of
P. C. lleabenor.who had it melee with
a man named Cunningham on Monday Inst. The ease hail been postponed until iho conclusion of the trial of
tne man who attacked him which had
oceupieil the whole of the morning.
As all the witnesses in the ease were
notjpresent and as I'liiiningli.-iui is not
leaving tin.' oily it was decided lo postpone the examination until this morn
ing nl l�� o'clock.
Evidently H Line people prefer the
tender cure of thi: look-up to the fron
air of hi'iivi-n. and   .Ion Ilovvnes has a
different opinion of the   "iron bins''
and "stone walls'' than Tony Layilon.
At the time thnt Leydon wns escaping Joe was qualifying for the position being vacated, As Ihe chief of
police wu* passing the government
buildings lie I'oiiml .Lie intoxicated on
the step of Ihe building. Ilo wns left
in that condition until the search for
Tony was completed, Joe was then
taken on an rccproBS wagon lo the
lock-up, where ho was still oblivions
to tlie fact that he was again a guest
of the eity.
There will be a great game of baseball at the recreation ground at i
o'clock this afternoon when teams representing Hie legal profession of the

Thc Richards it Pr-ngle's Minstrels
.vill present a mammoth bill of merry
minstrelsy at the Nelson Opera House
next Monday. This season the organization numbers fifty performers and
presents a cboiee collection of mirth
provoking and novel acts never seen
here before. The whole bill is a
"screamer" from beginning to end.
Every phase of gooii minstrelsy and
vaudeville is presented and the programme is crowded with big hits, in
tlie way of latest songs, dances, acro-
batisms, eomeiliflns, aerialists, quartettes, the miitiary sensation, "The
Black Watch Drill," a score of funny
i-ml men, an oriental first parr, with
brilliant Japanese settings and cos
turning���a'positive novelty in minstrelsy���and an abundance of other
features that stamp this organization
the besi and most liberally equipped
of its kind playing here this season.
It travels in its own train of private
ears, carries a magnificent orchestra,
two brass bands and stylish English
dog-carts drawn by Kentucky thoroughbred horses, all of whicli are seen
in its attractive stroet parade, which
takes place Monday at 9.80 p. m.
The beautiful scenic settings for the
first part of the big minstrel perform
nnce is an exact reproduction of a
Japanese village.with it breezy luxuriant perpeolive and unique architectural conceits. The idea is refreshingly
novel and adds a striking oriental
beauty and splendor to a usually ster-
otyped part of a minstrel show.
Every feature of this big combination
is presented in the same meritorious
way���different from any other similar
organization and of the very best.

Stanton vs. Cunninghnm   Heard   Yesterday at, the Police C^ourt.
The     Stanton      Cunningham    case
came up for bearing yesterday   morning   at the police   court,   before   His
Worship, the Mayor.    The   complaint
made   by   Stanton was that  he  wcnl
into the Madden house   oue   day   lust
week, where   he  had   been   drinking
and while there had met the prisoner.
It appears that   there   bad   been   bad
blood between them for the   last   two
years and   witness was   struck  across
the mouth by Cunningham.    While in
the hotel they got up an argument,  in
which the accused   lnsinna'.eil that bo
(Stanton) had   no money.    He  stated
that he then left him, but wus followed by   Cunningham.   Witness   warned
him   tbat   he   did   not want to   have
anything   to   do   with   him or to   be
bothered with him. Cunningham then
proceeded to attack bim and succeeded
in knocking bim down  nnd   then proceeded to   kick him when he   was  on
the ground.    Br.  Rose   testified   that
Stanton was suffering from a  fracture
of the   rib,  which   might  havo  been
caused by falling on a table or a blow
from some   bard   substance.    Ilo  also
stated that the witness   was   disfigured about the eyes, and the  Ride of the
face, as thougn he had received a succession of blows.   The injuries received, would piobahly lay him  up   for a
period of three weeks before he would
be able to resume work.    John Grant, i
hHitonder, testified that he heard tbem
arguing as bo went out   of  the  room
for a few minutes.    When he returned
he found Cunningham on   the   top   of
Stanton, holding him   by   the   arms.
Stanton mi., calling on him to let him
up.    The   evidence of   a   man   named
Fraser, who was a witness fLir tbe ill--
fence, went lo show   that   the   couple
were in a mix up fight   and   that   the
plaintiff   said   to   Cunningham. "I'ul
up your   hands, " and made a   pass a I
him.    The   prisoner then   bent  down
and   caught   Stnnfon   Vy     the    legs,
throwing him heavily to the  lloor and
hold him by one arm at the same time
striking him on   the side of the   head
two or three times,    The   evidence   of
the ilel'eiidanl   went   to show   that be
had been threatened   by   the plaintiff
who had said that if be said any more
he would "slap his   face."   Cunningham followed   him   and innile a   pass
at him and aftir catching   him throw I
bim down   and   held   him there,   lmi
did not kick bin when he was   down.
The   mayo;-,    is    summing   up   the
case, said that as  Stanton was a man
of B0 years,   that lie should  have  had
some    consideiatlon     and      however
much Cunningham wus abuseil, he was
not justified in  taking   the   law   into
nis own hands and therefore   Inflicted
a fine of 81.1   and   costs,    which   was
paid on the spot.    The  case lasted all
the morning and did not conclude until 1 o'clock.    Taylor   .i   Hannington
appeared for  the Crown   nnil   QalllbOr
&   Wilson for the defence.
