This point has been decided by
Prosecuting Attorney Mackintosh,
v ho, ever since the arrest of the
women has had this point under consideration, an 1 w!io had decided on
lh" 11 urse in- .��� ...uld take some time
Mr. Mackintosh admits that if any
one desires to follow oul the suggestion made by Judge Prater from the
bench yesterday and formally charge
the women with Insanity that the
court is empowered to call a commission to examine into their mental condition, but he holds that such action
will not preclude the right to den.: :i I
a criminal trial under the laws of the
in support oi this contention .Mr.
Mackintosh advances the fact that the
only supreme - '"irt decision in this
state coveting the question is that
made in connection with tin- Cham-
peaux case and whicli holds that the
record of the examination may he introduced (luting the trial, hut that
none ol the testimony or expressions
of opinion on  the part of the  members of the commission is admissible
unless   Hie   parties   in  question     are j
placed upon the stand as witnesses in
thc  criminal proceedings.
Mr. Mackintosh believes that neith-
et woman is sufficiently deranged
mentally to excuse them of the crime
with which they are charged, and further holds that the desire to save the
county expense is far from being a
sufficient reason for turning the women loose without any attempt to
convict them. Such an act, he believes, would be equivalent to announcing to the world at large that
King county had rather save a little
money than prosecute the people who
bi  .   nit  murder within its boundaries.
Mr.   .Mackintosh   further  holds  that
an examination of the women on an
insanity   charge   would  he  nearly  as
ex ii nsive    -  a criminal trial, as the
���,    en's   attorneys   would   insist   on
calling   in   a   large   number   nf   witnesses  ai. 1  the  state would  be duty
j in und to have witnesses and experts
Its  own  in  order to  prevent   any
| miscarriage of justice.    Consequently
Mr, Mackintosh will oppose so far as
is in iiis power, any attempt  to have
a   commission   called, and  will   insist
that   t'e-   v.   .: en   be   tried     for     lhe
.Time with  which they  are  charged.

Xew York, July 24.���The defense iti
lhe cas. ..;' Hairy Kendall Thaw places .in entirely different construction
on the meaning of the letters written
'.> Mi-. Holman, Evelyn Nest.it's mother, which were made public Sunday. Instead oi conceding thai
Thaw's case had recived a hard blow,
the opinion of tin- counsel for the de-
fens, yesterday was that the etters
woul 1  aid  Thaw  materially.
"I am  not  the least bit  won i.  1
ihe publication of the letter," Clifford
W. Hartrldg'. chief i   insi i fe: Tha .v.

i-oiry me.   Neither do they worry Mr.
Thaw  or  Mis. Thaw  in  the  slightest
i may have a statement from either
o,   both of them in a day or two re-
gardlng the letters."
lt is understood ihat the defense interprets the letters altogether differently from the prosecution. Whereas
the prosecution holds that Thaw was
placed in as unenviable a light as
possible, the defense holds that White
is more injured than anyone else. The
fact that Mrs. Holman accepted money from him and also asked him  tor
money  in  the  letters  is  one  ground
Mrs. Holman. the defense holds, was
cognizant of her daughter's behavior
'' ,i> all limes and when Thaw succeeded
it, gaining Evelyn's affection she
pleaded with White to try to win her
away from Thaw. The letters, the de-
tense hi lieves, verify the idea.

I'ndet the above heading the Winnipeg Tribune enters a timely protest.
The Invitation to the King to visit
Canada, has caused a flo id Ol discussion about our loyalty. But to a certain extent the exclamations of surprise and delight, are chronic. It Is
not the highest form ol compliment
to assure a man that he has behaved
like a gentleman. II implies possibilities and doubts where none should
exist. Every Canadian should endorse
these remarks by the Tribune:
It is regrettable that no reference
to Canada can he made in Great Britain without the question of this country's -loyalty" at once being raised.
Not only are Englishmen guilty of
this bad taste; Canadians now living
in England are quite as great offenders.
The King's declining to accept the
invitation of the Canadian House of
Commons and the Senate to visit Canada has furnished the latest oportun-
Itj for those who seem surprised that
this country is not iu a constant, state
of rebellion to talk a lot of rot about
our "loyalty.'
The English papers deplore the
King's refusal���as his acceptance
would have given the Canadian people
such a good opportunity to show that
they are "loyal."
Even Lord Strathcona���a Canadian,
and therefore a man who should know
better���is reported to have commented
on the King's decision as follows:
"I am certain tljat had he visited Canada ever man, woman and
���  Child of Ihat vast dominion would
have joined together to give him
such a reception as would have
thrilled the whole empire with the
idea of Canada's loyalty."
"Canada's loyalty!"    The    constant
repetition   of   that   phrase   i.s   in   the
last degree offensive.
If It be necessary to he so constantly interested in Canada's loyalty, it;
tan only he inferred that this country
Tnight. reasonably be expected to be
A person unfamiliar with conditions in Canada would naturally conclude, from the senseless references
to our loyalty, that we were suffering
from a form of government not unlike
that which prevails In a Russian province���and that, therefore, it is somewhat remarkable that the people are
not in a state of excitement such as
Is common in  Russia at present.

A traveler who recently visited the
coast of Labrador Bays that nowhere
on earth are life and property held so
sacred as in that Utile kiiawn and barren hind. A thousand miles of lonely
seaboard, along which is scattered a
population of some 10,000 people, about
one-third of whom are white, would
seem to give every opportunity for
crime, yet there is no police officer of
any kind, un court and no jail. Nor
are they Deeded. The only criminal
charge within fifty years was one
against an Eskimo, who shot n rival iu
In addition to the resident population the coast Is visited every summer
by nbout 10,000 Newfoundland fishermen, and. while Newfoundland Itself is
not by any means free from criminals,
none appear to come among the fishers
or else the example of the natives of
Labrador causes them to refrain from
any wrongdoing while there. Years
ago 11 circuit court visited the coasl
every summer, but as it found nothing
to do it was abolished. Now should
any serious charge be made against a
nntn a magistrate would be sent from
Newfoundland to investigate it.���Harper's Weekly.

Condemned to Slavery.
Two hundred years ago, when men
and women were condemned to death
for trivial offenses, it was the custom
In Scotland to commute the death sentence into perpetual servitude to specified masters. In other words, the condemned person became a slave. It
was further ordained that he should
wear a metal collar round his neck recording his sentence and punishment.
The Society of Scottish Antiquaries
owns oue of these collars, fished out
of the Forth above Alloa. It Is brass,
with this inscription: "Alexander Stewart, found guilty of death for theft at
Perth, 5th December, 1701, and gifted
by the Justiciars ns a perpetual servant to Sir John Aresken of Alva."���

"My dear," said a vain old man to

Mere is an anecdote once related by
Herbert Spencer who, by the way,
wns rather heavy In hand when be
undertook to play story teller.  Apropos
of Huxley's humor be described a dinner of distinguished authors:
Over their cigarettes they fell to discussing their various methods <>f commencing to write. One said be wrote
and wrote, tore up, then wrote again,
and so on.
George Lewes, who wns present,
looked surprised, and then cried out:
"Oh, I'm not like Hint! I commence
to write nt once, directly the pen Is la
my hand. In fact, I boll at a low temperature."
"Indeed," ent In Mr. Huxley, "that
la very interesting, for, as you know,
to boil nt a low temperature Implies a
vacuum In the upper region."
Lewes himself was the first to lend
the shout of laughter which of course
greeted this clever repartee.
I have somewhere seen it observed
that we should make the same use of
a bonk that the bee does of 11 flower.
She slenls sweets from lt, but does not

"What 1 want," said the young man,
i "is to get married and bave a peaceful, qulei h nne."

Cbtrhlnir  OnUa  und   Albatross With
Hod   nnd   Line.
Curious though it may seem, it is a
fact thut birds are caught with rod and
line ln many parts of the world. The
pastime Is declared to be almost as fascinating as tishing. Gulls in Newfoundland are caught in this way In large
quantities. Iu New England tlsiiing for
gulls and petrels is an Important Industry.
The method of liird Ashing la practically the same as that of ordinary
fishing, Two men go out In a dory and
throw pieces of cod liver on the water.
When large quantities of birds have
been attracted to the spot more cod
liver Is thrown out on a hook. This tho
birds greedily swallow and thus fall
easy victims.
Albatross arc fished for in the Bame
way off the Cape of Good Hope. \
piece of pork is attached to a long line
and thrown overboard. The bird will
eye it for a long time, gradually and
cautiously making toward it. Suddenly
he will seize it and hold it In his beak.
When he discovers that he is caught be
wlll sit on the water and vigorously
flap his wings. However, he will be
drawn Into the boat aud made a captive.
Albatross fishing is good sport, since
the bird requires careful handling, s .
long as lie pulls against the line it is
easy enough. The moment, however,
he swims forward the hook will drop
from his beak unless it is skillfully manipulated, and the bird will And himself free.
The     Famous     Chained     Library     nf
Wimhourne. Ireland.
Wimbourne, Ireland, is upted for
mauy things, but its famous chained
library is perhaps the most notable of
Its curiosities. The library possesses
unique interest as being one of lhe
earliest attempts to disseminate knowledge among the people. The collection
was made accessible to the people in
1C8U aud numbers some uuo volumes.
The scarcity of books and the value of
the collection are both indicated In the
care taken for their preservation, and
especially against loss of such treasures by theft. By means of chains
and rods the books were securely fastened to the shelves, and these chains,
lt Is rather surprising to learn, were
not removed until 1857, when the library iittiugs were repaired. Among
the interesting works of the collectiou
ls a copy of the tirst edition of Sir
Walter Raleigh's "History of the
World." 1614. It has suffered from tire,
and tradition says that Matthew Prior
was responsible for its condition, the
gtory being that he fell asleep when
reading it once upon a time, and the
pages were burned by his candle. It
has been neatly repaired, and Its mishap now adds to Its interest. The oldest volume iu the library is a tine old
copy in vellum of "Reglnutu Auinna-
rum." It is in manuscript aud hears
the date 1343.
Fii-Ht i.llmmer of a Star.
A little girl, the French critic Sarcey
related, once presented herself at tlie
Paris Conservatoire iu order to pass
the examination for admission. All
she knew was the fable of "The Two
Pigeons," but she had no sooner recited

The Sexton Beetle Is nn Expert
GrnvediKR-er ��� \\ underfill Skill of
the Spider and (he Qreat strain
That   Bla   Klaxtic   Wei.   Will   Hear.
Long before man had thought of the
saw the saw fly had used the same
tool, made after tlie same fashion and
used ln tlie same way, for the purpose
of making slits iu the branches of trees
so that she might have a secure place
to deposit her eggs. The carpenter bee,
with only the tools which nature has
given her, cuts a round hole, the full
diameter of her body, through thick
boards aud so makes a tunnel by whicb
she can have a safe retreat In which to
rear ber young. The tumblebug, without derrick or machinery, rolls over
large masses of dirt many times her
own weight, aud the sexton beetle will
in a few hours bury Hneath the ground
the carcass of a comparatively large
animal. All these feats require a degree of Instinct which ln a reasoning
creature would be called engineering
skill, but none of them Is as wonderful as the feats performed by the spider. This extraordinary little animal
has the faculty of propelling her
threads directly against the wind, and
hy means of her slender cords she can
haul up and suspend bodies which are
many times her own weight.
Some years ago a paragraph went the
rounds of the papers iu which it was
said that a spider had suspended an
unfortunate mouse, raising it from th6
ground and leaving it to perish miserably between heaven and earth. Would
be philosophers made great fun of the
statement and ridiculed it unmercifully. I know not how true It wa.s, but I
know that It might have been true.
Some years ago In the village of Havana in the state of New York a spider
entangled a milk snake in her threads
and actually raised lt some distance
from the ground, and this, too, iu spite
of the struggles of the reptile, which
was alive.
By what process of engineering did
this comparatively small and feeble insect succeed in overcoming and lifting
up by mechanical means the mouse or
the snake? The solution Is easy
enough if we only give the question a
little thought.
The spider is furnished with one of
the most efficient mechanical implements known to engineers���viz, a
strong elastic thread. That the thread
ls strong Is well known. Indeed, there
are few substances that will support a
greater strain than the silk of the silkworm or the spider, careful experiment having shown that for equal sizes
the strength of these fibers exceeds that
of common iron. But notwithstanding
ita strength the spider's thread would
be useless as a mechanical power If it
were not for Its elasticity. The spider
has no blocks or pulleys, and therefore
it cannot cause the thread to divide up
and run In different directions, but the
elasticity of the thread more thau
makes up for this and renders possible
the lifting of an animal much heavier
than a mouse or a snake. This may
require a little explanation.
Let us suppose that a child can lift
a six pound weight one foot high aud
do this twenty times a minute. Furnish him with 330 rubber bands, each
capable of pulling six pounds through
one foot when stretched. Let these
bands be attached to a wooden platform on whieh stands a pair of horses
weighing 2.100 pounds, or rather more
than a tou. If now tbe child wlll go to
work and stretch these rubber bauds
singly, hooking each one up as it is
stretched, iu less than twenty minutes
be will have raised the pair of horses
one foot.
We thus see that the elasticity of the
rubber bands enables the child to divide the weight of liorses Into 380
pieces of six pouuds each, and, at the
rate of a little less than one every
three seconds, he lifts all these separate pieces one foot, so that tbe child
easily lifts this enormous weight.
Each spider's thread acts like one of
the elastic rubber bauds. Let us suppose that the mouse or snake weighed
half an ounce and that each thread is
capable of supporting a grain and a
half. The spider would have to connect
the mouse with the point from which
It was to be suspended with 150
threads, and if the little quadruped
was ouce swung oil' his feet he would
be powerless, Hy pulling successively
on each thread, and shortening It a little, the mouse or snake might be raised
to any height within the capacity of
tbe building or structure in wblch the
work was done. So that to those who
have ridiculed the story we may Justly
say, "There are more things in heaven
and earth than are dreamed of in your
philosophy "
What object the spider could have
had lu his work I am unable to see. lt
may bave been a dread of the harm
which the mouse or snake might work
or It may have been the hope Unit  the
decaying carcass would attract files,
which would furnish food for the eng1
neer. I can vouch for the truth of the
make story, however, and the object
of this article Is to explain and render
credible a very extraordinary feat of
insect engineering.���Follies of Science.

Hugh  McLaughlin yesterday.
McLaughlin went Into the Lytton
hotel yesterday morning for an eye-
opener, but before he reached the bar.,
his gaze became rivetted upon the
fioor. He stood as one mesmerized,
then suddenly whispered hoarsely to
thc bartender, "Give me a pin." When '
this was forthcoming, he took deliberate aim, and speared a small piece
Of tobacco leaf on the floor. This he
placed on tbe counter with an air of
much mystery, while the dispenser <>f
chi ery liquid tried to look as if some
new joke was ahout to he sprung on
him. McLaughlin explained that this
was a new species of tarantula that
he had discovered, and he warned the
barkeeper to be very careful about
it. Soon he jumped back Into a corner with a look of horror on his face,
exclaiming that the spiders were all
over the room. He refused to remain
In the place, and went outside, where
he began chasing unseen black cats
across the street. He had jus' captured what he claimed to be a particularly fine tabby when Detective
Bradshaw appeared on the scene, and
escorted him to the lockup, where he
spent the remainder of the day in company with various creatures unseen
by other eyes. He refused to go to
sleep, because he claimed that several negroes were constantly trampling on him when he laid down. He
had a few lucid intervals, during
which he insisted that the man in
charge had no right to keep him ln
the cell, a point which rhe police magistrate will decide as soon as McLaughlin is able to appear before him,
Abandoned Vessel Burns.

hull of an abandoned iron vessel was
sighted about 900 miles east of Sandy
Hook light on July 21 by the Austrian steamer Franceses which arrived here today from Trieste and Palermo. There was nothing ahout the
craft to reveal its identity. The
derelict may be the Norwegian bark

on flre July 20. the crew having been
rescued and recently brought to this

Undal was an iron vessel.
Russian Steamer Arrives.
New York, July 24.���The Russian
steamer Smolensk, Capt. Troyan, arrived today from Rotterdam with five
cabin and 915 steerage passengers.
During the Russian-Japanese war the
Smolensk was engaged as an auxiliary
cruiser and later as a collier attached
to Admiral Rojestvensky's fleet in the
Far East. The Smolensk is the first
steamer of the new line recently started between the Baltic and New York.
Other ships will follow towards the
end of the year.

Evidence   Against   the   Man   Arrested
on  Charge  of   Killing   Mary
Nanaimo, July 24.- -The post mortem
examination on the body ol Mary iiai-
Lon, the Vancouver girl who was
murdered on Saturday, discloses the
facl that each of the three shots the
murderer fired Into her body were
fatal.    One bullet  of 38-caliber was
I round In the body. Feiitherslone, who
j appeared for preliminary hearing yesterday, was remanded until Thursday.
Against Featherstone the evidence
j looks very black indeed. There are
marks on his face and hands whicli
one medical man who saw him snld
might have been caused by the girl's
nails and teeth. On a handkerchief
he carried were what happened to be
blood stains. Earlier in the day he
had entered the house of Mrs. Dick,
entering her bedroom and making
some remarks about the Dalton girl.
According lo the report he asked the
way to the Dalton house and certainly
hi displayed bis revolver during the
day. lie had been drinking heavily.
The prisoner will not talk of anything
that occurred on Saturday afternoon.
