A glass factory for New Westminster is now an
assured fact. The promoters A. G. Thynne and R.

over the old Automatic Can factory which they have
purchased with the attendant land.
The plant will cost in the neighborhood of $50,-

From 75 to 100 skilled hands will be employed
continually, and will be brought herefrom Quebec so
as to be in readiness for work as sojn as the machinery is installed.
A test of the sand in the vicinity of this city has
been made and it was found to contain only 80 per
cent silica which is not sufficient quantity for profitable glass making. Sand which is found to contain
99 per cent of the required silica will be brought
from a considerable distance up the coast.
The main industry will be the manufacture of
glass bottles, of various shapes and sizes and fruit
jars and sealers.
The work of fitting up the building will be rushed along rapidly and the required machinery will be
hurried from the makers as soon aa possible.

Washington, D.C., May 17.-The world's international commerce will aggregate fully $25,000,000,-
000 in the year 1906, says a bulletin issued by the
department of commerce and labor. By the terms
"world's international commerce", explains the bulletin, is meant the imports plus the exports of all
countries of the world from which statistical trade
reports were available.
The figures given indicate that the trade between
nations in 1906 will be six times as much as in 1850,
two and one half times as much as in 1870, and 25
per cent, more than in 1900.
One interesting fact, says the bulletin, which an
examination of the figures of average monthly trade
of the principal countries of the world develops, is
that the United States now stands at the head of the
worlds great exporting nations.
The monthly average exportation from the
United States in the nine months ended .with March

Justice  Gordon  of  Seattle  Gives  Decision in Assault Case to That
Seattle, Wash., May 16.- Men are
to be discouraged from walking or
talking with their neighbors' wives.
Unless they take warning and eschew
the company of any but their own
helpmeets or women having no previous marital obligations they are
liable to become fit subjects for the
services   of  a  surgeon.
The flat has gone forth from Judge [ the
Gordon's court that an angry hus-'
band's assault on the man who is walking with the aggrieved man's wife is
not such a breaking Of the peace as
to call for the balm of a heavy fine.
Instead, the naturally irritated bus-
band is allowed to go with nothing
but   words of commendation.

Bailey   Uses   Hard   Language   Against
Newspaper Correspondent at
Washington, May  16.���The
the senate's discussion of the railroad
rate   bill   was   disturbed   today   by  a
personal interruption by Senator Bailey, who rose to a question of personal

Discharges Frank Marshal.
Justice of tlio Peace Gordon's de-
Ision virtually deciding that a husband lias a rlghl lo lieal a man he
finds in company with his wife, even
if tlie wife refuses to speak to or
have anything lo do wilh her husband,
was given when he discharged Frank
Marshal, a Skagit county rancher,
who had been charged by tiie State of
Washington witli assault and battery
on Vincent Ignasiak, a bartender for
Tony Simich, who runs a saloon at 312
First avenue south.
Ignasiak was apparently too hard to
probOUnce often, for tlie attorneys in
the case referred to tho prosecuting
witness as Jo,' Bauer, and Joe made
no objections.
The assault and battery case was
the outgrowth of a suit in the su-
perlor court in which Marshal demanded damages from Tony Simich
for alienating lhe affections of Marshal's wife. Marshal got a default
judgment for $7,500, and ihe judg-
in,'in has already been settled. The
allegations in the complaint were exceedingly sensational. It appeared that,
ilrs. Marshall has long ago ceased to

Howod her affections upon tho Italian

It appears that Joe Bauer, the bartender for Simich, was an important
witness in ihe case and had been
used by Simich to help him in making
appointments with Mrs. Marshall, Mar-
si,al had warned Bauer to leave his
wife alone, ihat al: hough they did not.
now live together she was still his
wife in the eyes of the law nnd he
proposed  to  protect her.
Bauer became afraid ihat Marshal
would do him bodily injury, and some
ten days ago Bauer, in company
Mrs. Marshal, started to the office of
the prosecuting attorney to secure a
warrant for thr arrest of Marshal on
a peace complaint. Marshal met \
Bauer and Mrs. Marshal in the hallway of the Colman building, ready
to take an elevator to the prosecuting
attorney's office. There was an angry
remark, and Marshal struck Bauer full
in ihe face, knocking him flat to the
ll,ior. Tii,' angry farmer was preparing for a reward attack when bystanders interfered. Bauer had his
disfigured eye pa:,'bed up and later
caused  the  arrest   of Marshal.
On the witness stand yesterday
Marshal admitted thai li,' struck
Bauer and told in substance the Btory
related above. Charles L. Lundy, who

appeared as an assistant prosecuting
attorney in the case, l.undy grew dramatic when li,' jumped to the courtroom floor yesterday and in a high-
pltched voice declared:

been Id Marshal's place Bauer wouldn't
have fared so easily.
"I'll not say what I intended to,"
aaid Mr. Gay, "for I don't want to put
evil  thoughts  in  any  man's mind."
Attorney Lundy referred to Marshal
as 'doing a George Mitchell act and
insisted that the dignity of the law be
upheld and that a fine be imposed upon Marshal.
"Even though you know wdiat you

Mr. Gay.

Detective Scott Takes Him for a Short
Time From Care of Local
It. L. Mason, the smooth customer
wiili tlie many fancy aliases again
graced tlie dock in the police court
with his presence this morning, when
G. E. Martin appeared to defend him.
The evidence was not gone into, the
accused being remanded for eight
days. A large crowd was in court anxious to have a look at the man who
had so adroitly swindled the hotels
and banks both here and in Vancouver. The awkward position in which
h,' found himself did not seem to
weigh very heavily on Mason's conscience as he stepped out from tlie
dock back to his cell wilh a jaunty air.
Mason was taken io Vancouver this
afternoon in charge of Detective Scott |
where he will answer to the charge of
fraudulently obtaining the .sum of
?50 from the proprietor of the Empire
hotel. Mason is known in Vancouver
as Douglas, and it is getting to be a
matter of considerable difficulty for
him to remember his different aliases.
He will l,e broughl before the police
court tomorrow morning at nine
o'clock, when the preliminary trial
will take place.

Joseph    Jefferson's Works of Art    in
With her eyes suffused with tears
every time her famous husband's
name was mentioned, and her voice
Quivering ko that her words were
scarcely distinguishable, Mrs. Joseph
Jefferson, gave testimony in the supreme judicial court before Judge Sheldon, says the Boston Globe, as to what
she understood was Joseph Jefferson's
wish in regard to the disposition of
his famous collection of pictures.
The question before the court is a
petition for instruction brought by
Edward G, Black, of Hasbrouck
Heights, N. J., and Mrs. Sarah A. Jefferson, executors of the Jefferson
estate. T. H. Tindale appeared for
Mrs.  Jefferson.
The point at issue is whether the
money from the sale of the pictures,
which broughl (229,000 in New York
a short time ago, should be paid over
to the widow of the actor or whether
it should become a part of the residual 'j estate. The question is whether Jefferson's act in sending the pictures to
New York for sale deprives Mrs. Jefferson of her right to them under the
terms of his will.
By this will, he gave all his personal
property, including the paintings
which were In or about his estate at
Buzzards bay, to his wife. He directed
that all of his own work should be
divided among his own family, Mrs.
Jefferson to have first choice, and the
children to follow, according to age.
When Mrs. JeffSrBon was called to
the stand to give her testimony she
appeared exeedingly weak, and il. was
s,,m��- seconds before she could command her voice to answer the first
inquiry as to whether her husband had
ever given her to understand that, she
was to have his paintings when he
died. She finally replied thai he had
on on assured her so.
Thomas JelTerson was an attentive
listener to the ease.
The court said he would be inclined
to rule that paintings which wero simply loaned from Buzzard's bay for loan
exhibitions were really part of the
Buzzard's bay collection, but that
those that wore out for sale, even
though lt had been intended that they
should come hack were they not sold,
wore not properly any longer of the
Buzzard's bay lot.

Both are 61 years old.
Wickel was a widower. Through a
matrimonial paper he got into correspondence with a prospective bride
In Illinois. All arrangements were
made for the wedding, but when the
bridegroom put ln his appearance the
prospectice bride, who was considerably younger than the other party to
the contract, backed out.
To show she had no ill feeling in trie
matter, however, she told Wikel she
knew just the woman he waa looking
for, who resided in Mecosta < ounty,
Mich. She gave him the name and
address, and as a result of the i-orres-
pondence Wikel has just married her.
