New Trial to Patrick
New York, June 11.��� Recorder Goff
today denied A. E. Patrick a new trial.
The judge In his decision declared
thai on not one of the grounds urged
ln the motion was there sufficient
cause to grant a new trial. Of the
witnesses who testified at the recent
hearing concerning alleged denials by
Valet Jones  of the testimony given
by him at the trial, the decision says:
"It would ��e taxing human credulity
to a point beyond forbearance to even

probabilities of their stories, the

Aii interesting Incident occurred
during the riveting. A leopard,
which had previously devastated the
hen roosts of evei.. one in our own
locality, besides taking sundry dogs
and cats, was run over by an engine
one night. He had apparently been
dazzled by the headlight and had lain
Ion the track. He was seen by ...e
driver, who pulled up. The skin was
found to he scarcely damaged.
The deep pools among the islands

rifle and other gear and had to swim
to one of the Islands, where he remained all night.
Anothei- adventure, that befell two
of our rivetters, Is perhaps worth recording. Thev went a little way along
Hie gorge and there found the remains of a reedbuck. They started to
cut out the horns. Suddenly they
heard a growl behind them. Turning,
they saw a lioness with her two cubs,
who was evidently annoyed at this in-
' terference with her dinner. The two
: men did not stop to argue, but made
' a bee line for the Rorge, down which
they jumped���ahout as dangerous a
preceeding, one would think, as facing the lion. Luckily they stopped
sliding a good way down, and returned very much bruised and excited.
The lioness was followed next day for
some distance, but the party were un-
?.hle to come up with her.

Lye. Vancouver.    Bible reading, Mrs. | citizen   as   citizens   go,  If   we   forget
bis potency for great  good.    He had
enormous powers of organization and
acquisition.     But the strange feature
about his post-mortem praises was the
fact that one and all of his eulogists
felt   it   necessary  to say that,  though
rich, he was honest.    They said   thai
j he made no money in    Wall    street,
v Inch  was false;  they said he hated
i Yerkes, which was true; they said he
paid good wages, which was dubious.
| and that he opposed stock  watering,
1 which he did in a measure.      It used
1 to he "poor but honest," now it is get-
I ting to be Required of a man    that
he show that he is   honest    if   rich.
Isn't that hopeful?

TUESDAY, JUNE  12,  1906.
In connection with the double-headed campaign which is   now   in    full
swing In ihis province, at least as far
as the papers supporting the government at Victoria are concerned, there
is one Important point thai should
noi be overlooked; thai is the test of
policy by results, li requires bul little acumen to see thai such prosperity as this province has enjoyed during the pas: few years has been in
spite of, and nol because of, the policy of the provincial government.
The denunciation of the Ottawa governmenl by the provincial Ministers
and    iheir    satellites is a  peculiarly
malodorous than any they are attempting to fasten upon Ottawa; ihey have
n ached oul for every dollar they
could grab under the name of taxation; ihey have starved those works
oi development whicb are so constantly and sn urgently needed in a growing country; and they, or ai leasi
some of them, for the conduct of individual members of the cabinet varies in thai matter,   have   spent    the
time which ihey are paid to devote
to the Interests of the country in
holiday trips, with traveling allowances and "per diem" drawn from the
treasury, having "a good time" or
looking after their political interests
by the performance of that statesman-
liki operation known as "jollying the
At Ga&ges harbor, S. S. island,

their friends held a inert ing last.

tilde: since il is reasonably certain j organs, there was a large audience,

bellion by this time had noi iis bad heve the organs, but as usual, when
effects been so largely offset by the one comes to search the reports for
progress and prosperity which weowe   the utterances which evoked the con-
to the wise and energetic policy of Ottawa.
This is emphasized by the fact that
the policy adopted by the Ottawa government for the settlement of the
Northwest is made a principal ground
of attack. It is easy, of course, when
a department of government is doing
such  a   rushing  business as that pre-
statu hurricane (as reported) of enthusiastic cheers, one is puzzled to
know what it was all about. The
.Ministers appear to have been on the
defensive; or perhaps one should say
in apologetic mood: from first to
list. Th'ey acknowledged that they had
done the things they should not have
done and left undone the things they
We are afraid that some of our
conservative friends are not clear as

which is made oul of simple assertion aud one that is driven home and
clinched by hard facts and ii disputable figures. Yet the difference io

skilful politician can make the appear-  just the point.   They   are   miserably
ance al  least of a charge against the j incompetent
administration.   As Mr. Hole, of Winnipeg,  inn   it.  with  40,000 homestead
entries each year, it would be a wonder indeed If some mistakes were not
made;    and   this   has   all   the     more
force when one remembers that    the
people  who make ihese    enl lies    are
not  for  the  most   part,  business  men.
A majority of them, indeed, have had
no    experience    in    business    transactions.   As a matter of fact, tbe land
and limber policy of the preseni government at Ottawa stands oui in most
favorable contrast  with thai of their
predecessors.    Take  a   few  instances.
Between 1873 and 1896, 24,500 sq mre
miles of timber berths were lei  without compel Ition. Bul In 1903 one man,
and  he  was a  good   Liberal,  had  to
paj  a bonus of $15,000 for one little

knows whai a dismal failure ihe Conservatives made of iheir settlemenl

Ihey were in giving away the public
lands to railways. The Conservative
record is 31,500,000 acres in grants to

Liberal record is 2,(Km,nun acres to

Seattle, June 11.���Antonius F.
Slander, builder and owner of the
Slander Hotel and holder of several
hundred thousand dollars' worth of
other valuable Seattle realty, was
sued for divorce in the superior court
this afternoon by Violet L. Stander.
The complaint not only asks for a
divorce but for an injunction restraining Slander and F. M. Jordan, his
agent, from disposing of any of the
Slander holdings until the determination of the divorce proceedings. The
divorce is asked for on many grounds
of   cruelty   and   infidelity.
The complaint sets up that in 1897,
at Dawson, Slander entered into an ,
agreement with the woman suing for i
a divorce that if she would live with
li��� in as his wife he would give her
one-half of all the mining claims that
I.e owned in the vicinity of Dawson.
li was further agreed that at some
convenient time legal marriage ceremony should lie i -1 formed. The couple
lived together man and wife until
.Ian. 27, 1901, v, .en they were legally
married in San Francisco.
For four years the wife declares
that Stander has been on a continued
spree and ihat during that time he
has treated her cruelly. The cruel
treatment began in Dawson, according to the complaint, when, after the
woman had fled from the cabin to
avoid being seriously injured he pursued her, throwing rocks at her. On
another occasion complaint is made
that Stander severely beat her in the
Dawson cabin and while she was lying
prostrate on the floor threw a lighted
lamp at her which exploded. The
woman was obliged to spend the night
in the hills back of the cabin while
the husband went to the Forks, where
he shot up  the  town  and landed in
In June of last year the wife alleges
that  her husband  threatened to take j
her  life   with   a  revolver  unless  she
would sign a deed transferring to him '
a" her interest in the Stander Hotel.
When she refused he said that he
was going out to get a drink, and
upon his return would carry out his
threat, uie wife says only the intervention of the police saved her life.
For several days the wife accused
Stander of carrying a revolver about
the streets, looking for her.
Last March, the complaint sets up,
that Stander chased her from the
corner of First avenue and James
street to the corner of Madison street
;md assaulted her. A police officer
who witnessed the assault placed
Stander under arrest. Since that time
the couple have not lived together.
Since that, time, the wife alleges,
Stander has heen living with another
woman as his wife.

Montreal, June 11.���The trial of
Thomas James Hackett charged with |
the murder of little Edith May Ahern,

witnesses was begun, the father of
the little girl was the first called and
he broke down when called upon to
identify the clothing of the little one.
Father Brissette, of the parish of

the clothes of the little girl into an
open window of the basement of the

It  was announced a few days
e C. P. R. telegraphs would
complete the stringing of a- ditional copper wire to Montr \a a few
days. B. S, .lenkins, g*fieTal superintendent western lines, interviewed
bj a Free Press reporter in Winnipeg
las; Thuredaj stated that the wire had
bei a fconvpleted and is now in service.
This makes the fifth through wire to
Mm.i real, all live worked duplex, one
Ich is a direel duplex wire to
Vancouver from Montreal.
Mr. .lenkins stated that while con-
sin ion had been very heavy for
several years past, this year would
exceed any previous >e;e,' in the
amount of construction and that over
850 miles of pole line won I n constructed along new lines of railway.
Abou! too miles would be reconsti
ial along the older lines. Aitei this
season reconstruction between Poi
\ninii ami Vancouver would be complete throughout wiib the exception
ol a gap of aboul fifty miles.
The Free Press announced in the
beginning o thai an additional copper wire would be provided between Winnipeg and Montreal, and
additional wires between Brandon
and Strassbiirg over the Pheasant
Hills branch; an extension of heavy
copper, Minnedosa and Sheho, over
the Yorkton branch for direct through
connection with Edmonton when railway construction is completed; two
wires. Brandon and Wolseley over the
Reston-Wolseley branch; Brandon and
Regina over the Areola branch; and
a new copper wire between
Revelstoke and Vancouver. Mr.
.lenkins now states thai his recommendation to Mr. Whyte and the nian-
agei of telegraphs Eor further additional wires, lias been approved so that
In addition to the above, another copper wire will be sirung between Winnipeg and Calgary, and additional
wires between Portage la Prairie and
Xecpawa, Regina and Prince Albert,
Calgary and Edmonton and Medicine
Hal and Calgary via the Crow's Nest
ami Macleod branches. Altogether
over 1,000 miles of wire will be strung
vvest of Lake Superior this season.
A heavy metallic long distance tele-
phono circuit has heen provided connecting the company's hotels io the
mountains, To maintain uninterrupted communication east of Winnipeg
en account of double tracking operations, is a very difficult matter but so
far has heen very successful. The
poles and wires have to taken down
and moved temporarily for long
Stretches and in many places where
such an arrangement is not possible
on acouht of water stretches or other
obstructions, many miles of cable carrying the necessary number of conductors is utilized.
Owing to pressure a quadruplex ap-
paraius will be shortly installed at
Winnipeg, Fort William and Port Arthur, by means of which four messages can be som over a single wire
at the same time, two each way. Two
copper quadruplex circuits are also
worked With Minneapolis in addition
to local way wires.
The telegraphone system will shortly be tested between Winnipeg and
Brandon. By means of this system
a single wire may be utilized for both
telegraph and telephone purposes al
the same time without interference.

He   Laughs   When   Told   That   Democrats Want Him as Their Candidate.
Berlin, June 11.���"This is too sudden," said William .1. Bryan with a
laugh when he was told today of the
adoption by recenl state Democratic
conventions of the resolutions favoring his nomination for the presidency
of tbe I'nited States in 1908.
"This is the lirst announcement of
the news to me," Mr. Bryan continued. "I have been off the main
caravan route for some time and have
teen absorbed in what I have been
seeing and  doing."
Mr. Bryan had heen moving so rapidly since he left Vienna Friday that
letters and telegrams for him did not
icach him until today. As to the possibility of his nomination he had little
to say, declaring it is too early to
speak on that question.
Washout on Northern Pacific.
Butte, Mont., June 11.���Transcontinental business is effectually suspended on the Northern Pacific Railroad by a serious washout on the line
between Glendive, Mont., and Dickinson, N. D.
Trains arriving late today carry
nothing from east of these points. One
train will be sent from Castleton. X.
D., over ihe Great Northern line to
Helena, carrying belated passengers
and mail, but all other Northern Pacific trains will probably be held
awaiting the repairs of damage, which
will have been accomplished by tomorrow morning, or noon at the furthest. This is the most serious interruption of traffic on the Northern
Pacific for several years.
The Great Northern main line and
the Montana Central have been open
to traffic since Saturday afternoon.

"Bubbles"  Barred.
A petition is about to be circulated,
if if has not already started on Its
journey, requesting the Councils of
Surrey and Delta to prohibit the use
of the river road to automobiles.
We are perfectly in accord with
the idea. The river road is much too
narrow for such fast and recklessly
driven machines as automobiles. A
team and an auto meeting on ihe
river road would, no doubt, mean
death to someone, therefore, tbe
besl thing to do will be to prohibit
autos using it.���Delta. Times.
