Withdraw   Resignations. I
London, March 2G.���That the gov- |
ernment is facing a situation of ex-!
treme difficulty Is proved by the fact
that Premier Asquith was not iu a
position tonight to make his promised
statement in parliament and It was
consequently postponed until tomorrow.
The air is full of rumors, among
the ��� most credible being the report
that Colonel Seely is, after all, to quit
the war office by an exchange, of
portfolios with Louis Harcourt, secretary for the colonies.
The ouly new facts In the situation
today were to be found in the resignation of Field    Manual    Sir    John
tween Buckingham palace, the war
office and Downing street were carried on throughout the day, and it
was known that the strongest efforts
were being made lo induce Held Marshal French and General Ewart to
reconsider their action. The prime
minister called a hurrkd meeting of
the cabinet at Ills residence after it
was decided to postpone the statement to parliament.
Later it was* announced, with a
show of authority that both French
and Ewart had at last consented io
withdraw  their resignations.
In Ireland no change has occurred.
French, chief of the imperial general ] Belfast remains quiet, and although

the neck and several severe wounds
over the right temple and around the
face, Walter Uoss. a widower, residing in the Sutherland hlock. Mclnnes
street, was taken to the Itoyai Columbian hospital early this morning
where he lies In a serious condition.
Three men were placed under arrest
for complicity in the fracas, one being an Italian, who is believed to
have done the carving.
According to  details picked  up by
the police immediately following tbe
mix up. it would appear that a gangot
men    approached    the    Bhoe    repair
stand of the Italian under arrest, and
made an attempt to break Into   the
premises    located    in    the    Sterling
block. Fearing that a Becond attempt
to rob the place would be successful,
a  futile  effort    having    been    made
some months ago, the Italian is supposed   to  have   armed  himself   with
the razor which was later picked up
by the police and gave chase to the
would-be robberB.
Walter Ross, so the story goeB, was
walking past the shoe store at tbe
time and when passed by the gang cf
men on the run, he called upon them
to silence the loud noise they were
making. The next thing he remembers was receiving a gash in the neck
by a sharp Instrument followed by
an attack from the front which disfigured his visage.

Whether the jury system has outlived its usefulness
is a question which was heard discussed in the corridors
of the court not a few times during the lengthy session of
the special assize just closed in this city. Elsewhere, notably in eastern Canada, the matter has been the subject
of consideration for some time.
Back in the darker ages, when man was first given
the privilege of trial by a jury of his peers, conditions
were so immeasurably different from those of today that
it would be a matter for wonderment if the jury system,
as originated then, would meet all or the majority of the
requirements of this period. In those days might was
more than likely to be right, news travelled slowly, or not
at all, and ignorant superstition and prejudice were as
often as not the guiding stars in the administration of
what vvas termed justice.
As nearly as we can judge, the jury was established
to prevent the weak being oppressed in the name of justice
by the strong. In that endeavor it has done incalculable
good in the past, but, with our modern, safety-valved and
carefully-checked system of administering justice there is
room for reasonable doubt of the jury's usefulness.
Our judges are chosen, or, at least, are supposed to
be chosen, because of their high moral standards, their exalted codes of honor and their ability and learnedness in
the law. The judge of today is infinitely and beyond calculation the superior of his prototype of the time when
juries first were used, but, on the other hand, the man who
sits in the jury box, though in education and accomplishments towering above the man who sat there several hund- Cl, w:;i. ril.=,,i:,;i,,,:i,., u ,��� ��,���

It does seem that, in retaining the jury system, we
are providing against contingencies which have been
buried under our present advanced state of civilization
and our modern machinery of the law.
It was possible before the day of the jury and even
for many years after its inception to "railroad" a personal
enemv to imprisonment for life or even to the scaffold,
provided sufficient influence was brought to bear. It was

The following article oa the situation in Ireland appears in the Spokesman-Review:
"Presently the car (a jaunting car)
stops before an extremely big red

Stephen's green, where Mr. O'Connell
says there is oue day or other to be
a parliament."
Thus wrote Thackery. on the occasion of his visit to Dublin, some 70-
odd years ago. Year in and year out,
by day and by night, when the mista*
hang low that give Ireland its distinctive verdure, as when the green
island lies smiling in its surpassing
sunshine���that dream of Irish freedom and an Irish parliament, made
up of Irishmen mailing laws for Irish
men and women, has been the haunting, impelling motive of a long and
varied struggle which has never
ceased since another false and venal
Irish parliament voted away Its very

lt seems ironically appropriate that
the old time parliament building, vacated through Rltt'l gross use of
money and official bribery, was given
over to banking uses. "The bank and
other public buildings of Dublin are
I justly famous," wrote Thackery. "In
tiie former may still be seen the
I room which was the house of lords.
I formerly, and where the bank directors now sit, under a clean marble
image of George III. The house of
commons has disappeared for the accommodations of clerks and cashiers."
In justice, to Irish Catholics the historic fact must here be added that
the Irish parliament that corruptly
voted away Irish independence by the
act of union of 1S01 was made up exclusively of Protestant members.
Catholics had long been disfranchised
and* deprived of the right to hold

Stories   nt  Ireland's   Retiring
Lord Chief Justice.
So far from resenting tbe description of "Peter the Packer," bestowed
upon blm by the Nationalists, on account of tbe manner in which he resolutely set aside jurors notoriously in
sympathy with defendants in cases
which came before him, when Mr.
Balfour was Irish Secretary and the
Coercion Act vas in force. Lord
O'Brien, who has just tendered his
resignation as Lord Chief Justice of
Ireland, has, on more than one occasion, remarked that tbe title was
quite justified.
"I certainly eliminated from the
jury-box," he has said, "those who
were prejudiced. I did so without
apology, and would do 1'. again if in
the same position. I ought to have
been called 'The Oreat Ilnpacker'."
It has been truly said that Lord
O'Brien has had some bitter political
opponents, but not a single enemy.
He is a typical Irishman ��� genial,
kind-hearted and witty, with a brogue
of exceptional strength. He was
Queen Victoria's guest on several occasions during Her Majesty's last
visit to Ireland, and he greatly amused the Queen on one occasion by describing how, wben traveling abroad
before his elevation, bo Inscribed
himself ln the books of the Swiss hotels as Her Britannic Majesty's First
Serji'ant-at-Law. Although the title
was strictly correct, 'ts pompous nature threw the officials of Switzerland into consternation, and they had
much to do to decide whether diplomatic courtesies were not due to this
high and mighty personage.
A story which Lord O'Brien Is rather fond of telling agalfii.t himself relates to an occasion when he hired a
hackney-car at Sligo for a drive after
a weary day in court. He mounted
the car beside the driver, and lhe
"jarvey," believing the Attorney-General, as Lord O'Brien then was, to
be inside tho vehicle, remarked,
"That's a  bard   man  inside."
"Ves," said Lord O'Brien, T believe he is a man with an indifferent
At the end of the drive the A��tor-
ney-General handed the "jarvey" a
gold coin, and the surprised and delighted man, looking lirst at lhe coin
and then at th" Attorney-General,
whom he then recognized, said:���-
"Well, afther all, the divil isn't as j
black  as he's painted."

blown up with a bomb if she did not
leave $4u0 under a tombstone in Calvary cemetery, St. Haul, was received
hy Mrs. Katrino Cippatino, 690 Johnston St. N. E. Saturday, and turned
over to the police today.
Mrs. Cippatino said she had heen
afraid to come down town with the
lettei until this morning, when a
neighbor   accompanied   her.
"We are the brigands." said the missive, which was scrawled over several sheets of paper, "and we ask you
to bring $400 to Calvary cemetery, between Minneapolis and St. Paul. Leave
it by the tomb, the first one to the
right of the main entrance, on pain
that we will put a bomb under your
house and blow it up.
"We have the lay (f your place

where to place the bomb. Tlve of us
will do the job. See Joe Poglkso an

We will also kill your husband if you
do not  pay."
The letter was signed "Mr. Brigand,

John Kaltieo, Italian detective, said
he believed the letter had been written by someone who wished to get
Mrs. Cippatino's boarders, who recently  left,  into trouble.

large turnout is expected an that a full

gathering most or his troops at the

his base ai Chihuahua and if these
should be cut by a force of federals
from Saltillo or Monterey the rebel
army  would be in a desperate plight.
The army strategists here are con-
ringed, therefore, that if Villa does
not succeed In breaking down the opposition of Torreon quickly, he will
be obliged to undertake a hurried retreat to Chihuahua to reorganize and
strengthen his forces.
Conditions along the Texas border
are much better than they normally
are, according to information reaching

believes that Canada has fully re-es
tabllshed confidence with British ii
nanclers us a result of the remarkabl *
transformation that has taken place
iInce the first of t.i" year.
In this connection Mr. Smith pointed out that the Canadian financial sil
nation was much brighter, which i.i
attributed to the splendid manraer in
which the Canadian banks handled
tbe situation last fall, when tin*
money stringency was felt on this Bide
of the A^lemti" ocean,
"London will take a reasonable
amount of gilt-edged Canallan securities," said Mr, Smith, "but the mar
ket for real estate and tin* sale of

for many years to come, li will !,������

Mr, Smith emphasized the fact that
notwithstanding the very heavy strain
on ('anadian credit lust year, ine Ca
nadian financial institutions bad ';ot
suffered embarrassment to any area!
extent. While they had combatted the
situation, Mr. Smith elaborated upon
the fact that while Canada will be
able to obtain all the money neces
sary, it wll] only be on the understanding that the country cleans up a large
portion of construction work and the
railway situations, nnd harvests an
other Rood iron, ���

A Straight Line Ls the
Shortest Distance between Two Points"
Whatever troubles old Fuclid gave us in our schooldays
liis axioms were simple enough, ln our business life
to-day we show a lively appreciation of the truth of this
axiom in cutting out superfluous efforts��� in the saving of
time and  labor.
In making goods the straight line is "efficiency." It is
the shortest distance between raw material and finished
5n Selling Goods, the straight line is
Newspaper Advertising.
It is the shortest distance between the seller and the buyer.
Some manufacturers are applying the straight line in the
making of their goods, but neglecting it in the selling of
them. Some have no line of communication with the consumer at all���many let their message meander along bypaths of "chance acquaintanceship" instead of telegraphing it along the straight line of Newspaper Advertising.
Newspaper Advertising is the Shortest Distance between
the two points of "Supply" and "Demand."

Starting out from England Franklin
and his party  arrived at New  York
and corns on from that place by stage

being appointed to a vessel, besides
attending to her armament and equipping her for a voyage, had also the
responsibility of furnishing ber wit'i
a crew. He set about this by establishing a recruiting offlce ashore, generally at a sailors' tavern, and placarding the fact through tbe town
and the surrounding country with
the announcement that . "Captain
Blank, R'N.. waa now fitting out
H. M. ship So and So for a cruise In
foreign waters."
Following this came promises ot
unlimited rum, prize money and the
King's bounty. When the gullible one
came to the bait he was piled generously with drink and flattery, the
King's gold Jingled before bis staring
eyes and his befuddled brain filled
with stories of the joys of ltfe ln tbe
King's navy loudly bawled tn the sea
ballads of the day. That these joys
were not unknown ls shown by the
fact that the bounty was at one time
above 1350.
When these gentle means failed to
complete bis number tbe captain sent
a few boat loi ds of sturdy fellows
ashore after dark In charge of an
ofllcer. Tliis party or "press gang"
proceeded to the resorts of merchant
