Hagel and John Westlake, brought In
a verdict of guilty.
lt. A. Bonnar, K.C, took exception
to Mr. Justice Curran's charge* to the
jury which he claimed was in error
in many places. Mr. Bonnar pointed
cut that the judge had said that the
evidence was corroborative in all cases
and counsel went on and endeavored
to show that far Prom such being the
case it was very contradictory.
He read out numerous instances of
what he contended were very serious
and material discrepancies. The jury
had left the court to discuss their verdict shortly after 5 o'clock.
Recharged Jury.
.Mr. Bonnar then took his exceptions
and asked that the jury be recharged.
He then went on with his arguments,
some of which Mr. Justice Curran concurred in. While in the midst of the
argument the jury sent in word that
they had already come to a verdict, i
Mr. Justice Curran. however, refused I
to accept any verdict until they had
been recharged as had been suggested by Mr. Bonnar. Ile then sent for
them and recharged them. The jury
was told t'r.ey could adjourn for dinner. On their return the jury again
weighed the evidence and brought in
their verdict at 8:30.
Hagel se-emed to take the verdict
coolly. Mrs. Hagel, who has been a
constant visitor ln the court room
every moment of the day, turned her
face towards her husband as the verdict fell from the lips of the jury foreman. A look of agony passed over
her face as she looked long and hard
��t her husband. Slowly the sherltl
walked towards the two convicted men
and slipped the handcuffs on their
wrists, the one handcuffed to the
other. This proved too much for
Mrs. Hagel and she dropped in her
seat, sobbing silently. The two men
were taken across to the provincial

Fell From Ladder
McDonald, of number one firehall,
was on the aerial ladder when he
slipped and fell a distance of 60 feet,
seriously injuring his head and back.
He was carried to an adjacent house
where he was given first aid by the
police and afterwards taken to the
hospital. The heat of the fire was
so intense that persons standing a
block away had to move some distance further. All the available fire
apparatus in the city was brought
into use and even these were found
not quite adequate. It was three
hours before the flames were finally

The following firms were involved:
Nelson Shakespeare *& Watson, wholesale grocers; Standard Brokerage
company; Turner Bros., asbestos manufacturers, Mcl.eod and Clarkson, the
Imperial Storage company and the

opposing the stand taken by President Wilson for an honorable carrying out of the Hay-Pauncefote treaty with
regard to Panama canal tolls are turning out columns
upon columns of arguments to show why the United States
has a right to exempt its own coastwise shipping, they are
very careful to refrain from putting into print any of-
tener than is absolutely necessary the exact wording of
the clause in the Hay-Pauncefote treaty which deals with
canal tolls.   Here it is:
"The canal shall be free and open to the vessels
of commerce and war of all nations on terms of
entire equality, so that there shall be no discrimination against any such nations or its citizens or subjects in respect of the conditions or charges of traffic or otherwise."
Here also is the straightforward comment on the situation made by one of the leading American weeklies:
"Any person able to understand the English
language who reads this clause and then refuses to
admit that we are in the wrong in endeavoring to
exempt our coastwise shipping proclaims thereby
his own personal moral status.   No statesman was
ever on stronger ground than Wilson is in the matter of canal tolls."
Those papers and politicians who are advocating
preference for coastwise craft flying the Stars and stripes
make the burden of their cry the statement that the build
ers of the canal surely have a perfect right to give their
own ships a handicap sufficient to place them in the running with the more advanced merchant marine of other
nations.  They forget that the time for making that pro
vision passed with the signing of the Hay-Pauncefote
treaty and that, now, having made an agreement, they
must, if they are to be considered honorable among the
nations, live up to it.
The clause in the treaty dealing with Panama canal
tolls surely is plain enough and, while "big business" in
the United States may attempt to bring Wall street
methods and Wall street standards of honesty to bear on
the controversy, President Wilson will have the backing
of every honest American who has read and considered the
clause printed above.
Rome is in darkness owing to an electrical workers'
strike. A city set on seven hills possibly cannot he hid, but
at night it must be pretty hard to find just now.

President Wilson's Plea Will Be Conceded  But Only  By  Small
Washington, March 20. -More stub
born than anything thut has arisen
to stir the tranquility of the Democratic majority since the party came
Into control of the national government in the opposition to President
Wilson's plea for repeal of the toll
exemption provision for American
ships in the Panama canal act.
With the time almost at hand when
the question is to be decided, the
opposition of the Democrats who be
lieve it is an economic escape to reverse tho policy of the government
on the tolls question becomes more
active and iu senate und house it
promises to be ihe most vigorous that
has been precipitated by any issue'
the Democrat congress has had before It.
While Uie preside nt and Democrat
ic members in both houses who will
support this position are confident
that the repeal will pass by a com
fortable majority, few have any idea
that the majority wul be* large. Die
bate on the repeal will begin in the
house Saturday,
I'resident Wilson conferred yesterday with Senator Jones of Washing
ton, informing the senator that then
was no basis for conclusions he had
referred to in a speech in the senate
Wednesday to the effect that the tolls
repeal was the price to be paid as a
reesult of negotiations With Greer.
Uritain for non-interference by foreign powers in Mexico and for England's defence of the Monroe doctrine.
The president told the senator that
he was "skating on thin ice'' in circulating such conclusions after read
ing them in some publication. Dis
cussing the question with other call
ers, the president said his address to
congress on repe*al of the tolls clause
was written before the visit to Washington of the Uritish minister te
Mexico, Sir Lionel Carden, to whom
Senator Jones had ri lerre'd in his
speech, and that the canal controversy was not mentioned during the
minister's conference ai tin* White
Later Senator Jon< a made a state;
ment to the se*nate' asserting that he
had not wished to misrepresent anybody, that he had referred to the conclusions as he had read them in a
newspaper, and that it was due to
the president that he express to the
se*natc his  flat  denial of the subject.

' K.erytliing   is   working   smoothly
and I believe the public is finding it al
matter of great convenience,"  statee]
J. C. Gwynn, district registrar of titles
to 'lhe   News  yesterday   when  asked '
as to the workings of the uew amend-
meats to the Land Registry act whicli ;
wen- passed at the last session cf the
Seventy-three changes ln the routine
Of the department were introduced I
and are now in effect while four more I
will come Into force on June 1. Mr.
Owynn stated that the office had no
great difficulty In enforcing the different amendments, the public finding
the scope of the new act ls to facilitate the work uf the office and thus
obviate the delays which have been
a source of annoyance to patrons.
Of course there are several little difficulties In the patli of the public using
the land registry office, and one of
'.hese is iu the fact that the full name,
surname, address and occupation of
all parlies to any document produced
.'or registration must bp furnished.
Previously "John Smith, New Westminster" wns a sufficient description.
Now John Smith's description Iras lei
be supplemented with the number of
hia hi us" and the name of his street
And !f he sells to half a eloz. n people
each of that number must give a full
description of his address and business. Tin' object of this provision is
to enable the land registry officials
In tlifi event of any defect being dis-
covered In the title to he able easily
to locate or trace the parties.
Ve*t another aim inline .it is one tc-
quirlng every vendor of land under
Lgreements of sale, sub-agreements or
assignments where the purchase price
Is payable in Installments to register
his title, and eii! agreements of sale
must be in such form aud executed by
such parties that they can Le registered.
Hitherto there has been no such provision In the law, as in Battled times
and  conservative communities    it    is
usually th" actual owner of the land
who sells to the purchaser.   Ti.e re-
cent booms, however, resulted in such
quick turnovers in land that often the
final purchaser would be making payments to somebody who In turn was
paying   to   somebody   else   who   had
bought from the registered owner. In
these cases,  where one of the inter-
1 voning parties made default, the final
j purchase was left In a very awkward
predicament as he had no right of ac-
: tion against the registered owner un-
I der an agreement of purchase he had
negotiated with the middle man.
This new amendment is retroactive
and  makes  it obligatory  on  persons
who have sold land nuder agreements j
of sale and sub-agreements to deliver1,
I agreements   in  such   form   that   they
Fcan  be registered, and to proceed  to
' register their own titles as vendors. In I
/.eases where tais renue.sl is not com-1
Splifd with the purchaser may, 30 days I
after the demand, bring suit to compel
the vendor to comply  with the new
requirements  of  the  Land    Registry
act.    Where the vendor has not registered   his   title,   this   would   probably
be  a   bar   to  an  action   to  compel   a
purchaser to continue his payments.
Further  protection  Is  afforded    to
married  women wiio are, called upon
j to make .acknowledgements In regard
: to property, the amendment providing
[.that no acknowledgement    shall    be
! taken unless in addition to the exist-
' ing precautions, she is made acquaint:
' fed   with   the  contents  and   nature  r.f
j the  document and  out  of hearing of .
ithe   husband   states   that   she   understands the same, and has executed the ,
| document without fear or compulsion'
.or undue Influence from her husband,

I culion of the same.

A  precious  relic    of    Scott   has recently emerged from the strong room
of Messrs Charles and Adam liiack,
Ihe publishers in Soho Square, This
is nothing le*ss than the author's own
set of the Wavcrlcy novels, a special
impression of the' collected idition
of 1S22-T. in whicli he embodied tho
correction! and editions for what he
used io di scribe humorously aa his
"Magnum opus"- the 48 volume issue of 1829-38, published by Robert
Cadi 11   of   Edinburgh.
How Scott Worked
in ivm. after Cadell's death, this
remarkable collection of books passed Into the possession of Blacks, who
purchased tbem, along win. tin* copyright, for ��27,000. Containing as
they do. ihe* original manuscript ot
the* Introductions and notes that for
such true Bcott lovers add such
charm to the tales, tin's., volumes
are of exceptional interest to tie* professed Scit. student nnd the mere
dealer In valuable books. They are
of Infinitely mon* Interest, however,
tn those who woul gel an Intimate
glimpse at tbe literary workings of
me wizard's mind. Page after of
careful correction, of commas, testifies to  Scott's desire to repair the
j hasty   writing   so often   laid   to his
'charge.    Not that  the mere physical
. writing betrays any signs of lelsure-
limss. One suspect-, there must have
he'e'i. good reason for the author's appeal to the printer In a letter Inclos-
ing the introduction for "Peverll of
the Peak." tn tliis Interesting document, bound up here with the book.
i be beseachi b him to exercise* the*
greatest of care In setting up the
type,  reminding him  that  tbe work
: had been composed under circumstances of exceptional difficult., a
touching reference lo the financial
wearies that clouded his closing
years, The b tter itself is no easy
matter   to  decipher,    But   if  Scctt'B
! writing is sometimes indistinct���considering the spied it is on the whole*
��� wonderfully clear -lt possesses the
advantage, to our eyes at least, of
being consonant with the conception
we hav,* formed of Its great and lov-
' able progenitor.
Two Signatures
In this connection it is Interesting
to note that il." reputed Illegibility of
his sieeua ..re was a source* of consld-
able amusement to Scot.. In the
Waverly volume before me then* are*
two signatures, written on the Bame
piece of paper, one* very stiff and
formal, Intended to be reproduced In
facsimile' on  the. "Dedication to  His
1 Majesty" In the m*w edition, the other,
I written    in    fun,  to    show   his    me-
! thod o fslcning h'gal documents, This !
(latter variety was Interpreted by u.
contemporary American as "Whop!"
Ultimately, the signature, which was
; on its best behavior was rejected as
being uncharacteristic! The writer,
who has been employed in making
an Inventory of the manuscript, found
it difficult to dispel a sensation of
sacriliglous guilt, in turning over the
pages bo often thumbed and so often
; written upon by the giant of Abbots-
This feeling was enhanced, perhaps
hy the fine old Russian leather bind
Ing, stamped in guilt by the owners
alius,   ;.   stag's   head   and   the   motto
; "Vigilantia." A certain amount of
ease was undoubtedly  established by
; tin* discovery of iin* passage In a let*
! ter from  Scott  n.   Abbotsford to Ca-
; de-li "Anne troubles you to forward
tliis enclosed to    Louisa    Kerr,"    re-
treating as it ei,ee*s, a pleasant picture
nf ilie* writer its a family man. Ann',
ee.   e* iurse,   was   his  daughter,    The
s. nteuce conjures up before the mind
a vision ot demure maidenhood not
out of keeping with the baronial atmosphere of the mansion on the
Twei d.
in  the introduction  to "Roigaunt-
ie i"    poignant    evidence    is   afforded
of the final break-up in Scott's health
Here we see that  for the first time
the master's hand lias been compiled to relinquish the pen, a sentence
being broken off midway and  finish*
< el   iu  a  Strange   writing.     From  this',
tine  onward,  he  resorted  almost   en- '
tirely  lo   dictation   in   preparing   Ills I
introductions.     The   frequent   recast-
inns and  deletions that occur  in  the'
... w  hand  writing  make one  suspect i
thai   the  new  method  Of composition
was not without ils difficulties. Doubt-
less,   after  all   those  years  of  stren-!
nous work    with the pen between his*
fingers, the great magician was dis-'
concerted by the- absence of his faith-
fill wand.   Other writers lhan he have ]
been indebted for Inspiration to the
fi i I of a penholder,    An  interesting
link   with one  of  the   most   valuable
eef   the   writer's   many   friends   is  af
I'e riled  in  the original of two letters
from  tin* Scottish antiquary, Joseph
[Train,  who during  their   long    acquaintanceship supplied so much    of
the  material on   which  tin*  novelist
I .   ei his storie's.   Tn this gentleman
Scot)    was   Indebted   largely   for   the'
ei gcoverj of the* character of old Mor-
' tal Ity,   I'i    which    subject    one   of   the'
!. .. is mentioned  refers,    According
to Lockhart, he was also responsible
I for ihe whole     machinery   of   the
"Tales of My   Landlord."
Author's Corrections.
Authors    whose* agreements    with
publishers   make*   them   liable*   for  all

Rank imposes obligations���
or���as the French put it���"Noblesse Oblige.
It is a very natural and right principle that those who
by their position in life command the respect of others
should deserve it and be worthy of maintaining their
position.    "Much is expected of those in high station."
But this principle is not confined to persons of noble birth
��� it has a hundred applications. It applies, for example,
to those manufacturers of
reputation and prestige who
make goods of high quality
and who advertise them constantly in the newspapers of
the land.
By their advertising they have
attained an eminence where
the very best in quality and
good service is expected  of
them. They have set a standard and their very business
life depends on the constant
maintenance of it.
So that when you buy advertised articles you rest assured
that you are getting the best
value that money can buy.
Well may you place your faith
in advertised goods. Well
may you give them prefer*
ence over articles which you
can only hope may prove
For the principle of "Noblesse Oblige" is
your guarantee of excellence in Advertised Goods.

���Clc-Temers   in   Desert   Mining   Camps
Drearn   of   Finding   Rich
Seattle, March 20.--Dreams of millions in radium have turned tile heads
cf hundreds nf old tune, prospectors
in the desert mining camps tei the*
���southwest, says A. 1.. Ilelgesen, an
Ogde 'i, I"tali, mining engineer and aa-
sayer, who is in Seattle on his way
tn Alaska, where he will spend the
coming summer In the MjVlce of one
of the- big copper companies of the
northern territory. Where once' the'
aid-line prospector dared death in the
���trren wastes or Utah and Nevada In
tJTr* hope of "striking it,rich" In gold
t^iartz, radium is now the lure that
rai.es h'im Into the waterless wilderness.
"And the most pitiable feature of
the new craze." saiel Mr, Ilelgesen toil. iy, "is the taci thai even the mosi
e\iee*rt mineralogist and aisayers are
at the present lini" Miiflile te> pass
offhand judgment on Anlium ores.
This fact has been responsible for
much less of time, money and what
is ume!, heartbreaking toll, on the
pa     ol  poorly educated prospectors.
"Me u who ceiulil not be deceived In

i pi ���:��� on the desert, load* d wltb
worthless Iron-stained Bandstone,
ivhlch they have' mistaken tor the
precious yellow ca'motlte! the ore
*. ��� leh is the richest hi ra din in.
"Thousands  of  (Julian*,  feave    been
spi nt In the last two years in locating  supposed  radium claims of this
character and  samples brought many
miles over the desert on the backs of
burros or on the back of the prospector : imself, have be-en assayed in Salt
Laki   end  other  mining centres only
to   !:e>   pronounced     worthless.     Few :
practical   miners,   even,   realize   that
only an Infinitesimal quantity of ra- '
dlum exists in even the richest radium j
ores, and though  real    radium    ores
heive   been  found   in   Utah',    notably !
Emery county, it has been found that
the   values   were   not   reco*. erable   to |
an extent Sufficient to Justify the Investment of capital in the mines.
Slight Chance for Fortune.
"There  are   no   big  mining  compa- ���
Tiles engaged in the exploitation of ra- ;
dlum   prospects  and   tlw    prospector '
who finds real carnotlte has a  slen-
eder chance of being able1 to realize on
his   hopes   of   fortune,    The     mining
man who looks for radium as a  bus- j
im ss is on the wrong trail.   As a side ���
Issue,  tbe  prospector  searching  for
gold ;md silver Is justified In investl- j
gating  what   may   prove to he carno-
tlte    deposits,     but  the    chances    of ;
finding a fortune in that ore are one I
in a million at  best."

There are several varieties of scorpions in Mexico, some of them exceedingly venomous and others little
