who had been summoned to show
cause why he should not pay a license

corporation which is said to be identical with the Hartford Insurance
company, of Connecticut, the latter
being represented in this city by
White, Shiles & Co., .this firm having
paid  the   license  demanded   by     the

The case occupied the attention of
the police magistrate for over three
hours yesterday morning, judgment
being finally reserved by the court.

as prosecutor.

Alberni B. C, Jan. 6.���Preparations
an- uov being made for the opening
of a second printing house, and the
launching of a new publication In Alberni.
The man responsible for the new
enterprise is John Packard, an oil
resident of Alberni. who has been engaged for the past two years in the
cooking departments of various survey camps, Mr. Packard Is a bible
student and has become remarkably
familiar with the writings of the prophets who lived .between the time of
Moses and Christ. By mysterious interpretation, and an arduous process
of calculaJOn, he has fixed a series of
calami:.-- to materialize during the
present century, the commencement
to be within ten years of the Christinas just past.
Mr. Packard wants to inform the
world of what is going to happen. He
claims to have given out such information before and that subsequent
events, such as the San Francisco
earthquake and the return of William
.sioan !���, acclamation, proved that he
had the right dope.
That Mr Packard had foreshadowed the��� eatastrophie-s vvas known to
only :t :. w, for the reason that several
newspapers refused to take him seriously an I give circulation to his warnings.
Now Mr. Packard, who has taken
unto himself th. title of "I, John, the
Prophet," has determined that any
and all Ol ;h. .-coffers and unbelievers
shall have only themselves to blame
for future foolishness. He intends
that hi- paper shall hav. a free and

contain -nany proofs of right to the
title, art! many more prophecies.

"Arkansas has a greater variety of
hogs and less pork and lard tban an)
itate In the Union. An average bog lu
Arkansas weighs about fourteen
pounds dressed with Its bead on and
about six pt>-.mis and a bait with tti
head off. It can outrun a greyhound
jump a rail ����*.�����, climb like a parrot
and liv�� on grass roots and rabbit
tracks. It hasn't much 'nil or bristle.
but plenty of gall. It wili lick a wolf
or a bear in a fair tight. It Is called
razorback Uecavr��e it Is shaped Kke t
snnnsL. In hunting n razorbaek it
ts always shot nt sideways, for they'
IS not a ghost of a show to hit II
otherwise, any more than to shoot at
a split shingle. It can drink milk out
of a quart jar on account of Its long
thin head. This type of razor-back 1*
known as the stone hog because its
head Is so heavy and Its nose so long
that It balance! up behind The owner
ut this type of hogs usually ties a stone
to Its tall to keep It from overbalancing and breaking its neck while runr
Cing. If the stone In too heavy, It wit.

THE EXHIBITION MANAGEMENT
Now that the important position of
manager oi the Provincial Exhibition
U vacant, and another organisation is
about to launch Itself on the troubled sea of showdoni, the importance
of a suitable appointment as successor to Mr. W. H. Keary must be
urged.
The Vancouver Exhibition starts
with a park suitable for horse racing,
one of the most attractive sports, and
it will not be long before claims
will be put forward for it possessing provincial rank. It is only a
matter oi time before an effort will
be made to relegate the senior exhibition on the mainland to mere local
importance to serve the Fraser Valley,
and experience has shown what the
citizens of Vancouver want they do
not ccii.sc to ask for. Statements
will be made of the particular adaptability of Vancouver for visitors, of
ltd advantages of transportation, and
a hundred things else will be urged.
This city has exceptional claims to
remain the seat of tho provincial exhibition. It is conveniently situated
for the accommodation of visitors,
since the hotels have been increased,
transportation is easy, arrd will 'be improved when in addition to the Great
Northern, the.Northern Pacific comes
in from the south, and the new local
lines now building are opened, two
of which will foi certain ba ready
by the next exhibition.
It is no lack of respect for the local men whose names have been mentioned in connection with tho vacancy to suggest to the Royal Agricultural and Industrial Society that the
position be thrown open to the best
talent in Canada. The Society shouio
not fail to paj a suitable salary to
-.-cure :i first class  man.
Winnipeg and Calgary did not hesitate to go afield to find a good hustling manager, and a man of energy and
determination would soon make his
Influence felt on the city through the
exhibition. The one tiling for which
ibis city retains Its pre-eminence outside  the  realms of  sport is  it.-   suc-
-  Bsful   exhibition,   and   it   says much	
for the retiring manager that while'PQ
carrying out many developments he' **-^
has reduced the amount of the society's debt from over $8,000 io the
l resent small sum. What is wanted
is a thorough revision of the attractions and more evening engagements
to hold  the  people  al  nigh;.
The exhibition of 1909 having beeu
set a week after the Seattle A-VI',
trenuous efforts should 'be made to
obtain some of tli- holiday traffic
brought westward for the great exhibition, and why. if .Seattle expects
to benefit from British Columbia, and
has received a provincial us well as a
federal grant from this country,
should not this exhibition blossom
out   into   a   Pan-Columbian   fair?
The history of British Columbia,
Washington and Oregon i- closely
bound together, an the natural products are largely the same. British
Columbia fruit did well at Spokane
apple show, and why should not the
compliment be returned. A wideawake manager could travel some
��� n't of the time In the I order cltli B
of Washington, Interesting exhibitors
in the Westminster show, and we
should be certain to retain permanently some portion of the annua] north-j
bound Hood of visitors in the Fraser I
Valley.
Such an undertaking might noi Bee
its refills visible In one year, but the
foundation well la;.l ultimate success
is assured.
that a high license system la contemplated.
The buttle with the Lords must
form an important feature of the session. Premier Asquith, speaking at
the National Liberal club,declared that
it is the dominant Issue, and on .the
decision rests the existence of the
Liberal party as the factor in social
reform. He makes the following
statement:
"His Majesty's government will advise the King to dissolve parliament
not ait the time prescribed at its own
caprice by an irresponsible assembly,
but at the time, neither sooner nor
Later, which they, with the confidence
of their elected and representative
supporters, in their own unfettered
discretion, deem to be right,"
The   Liberal   party   is   divided  into
A  Pleasing  Show.
This Is th. verdict usually accorded
the Hi Henry'.- Big Aggregation of
Minstrel bright lights which will appear at the op. ra house on Saturday
night.
The HI Henry Minstrel show is
known from ocean to ocean. It bears
a reputation for its general excellency, and aims to present the latest and
best njlnstrelsy. The present season
finds this popular star troupe still
further enlarged and improved, its
IKilicy being to present each season
something better than the previous
season. Those who have seen the Hi
Henry Minstrels of the past have not

Willi every Indication of the cold
snap continuing, prospects for intercity hockey matches between Weet-

place tn Trout lake this afternoon will
not be between strictly first class
teams, as It has been round impossible to get together ihe best stick-
handlers In each city, yet the contest
should prove interesting and exciting
enough. All local hockey players
whose old I'm'- skill in chasing a
puck remains unimpaired by lack of
sufficient practice aro requested to be
at Trout lake this afternoon, when a

A ROYAL TRAGEDY.

Durhoa of Wurtteyahierm.
About the same period at whirl
Queen Caroline was enrning notoriety
(or herself there resided In ��� small
town In the north of (iermnny a man
noted for Ida skill as a public executioner. Late one evening two men tu
military uniform called upon this per
eon and requested him to accompany
them, as his services were required at
���ome distance and would be liberally
rewarded, but that he must consent ts
be blindfolded. To this, after some demur, he consented and entered the car
rlage brought by the two officers. Apparently they drove a long distance,
and nt last by the sound be Judged thai
they bad crossed a bridge and entered
l paved coiirryartl.
The carriage baring stopped, he was
assisted to alight and conducted alonfl
���corridors and upstairs till at last, the
bandage being removed, be found him
self in a lurge, gloomy room, In tbt
center of which stood a block with a
heavy sword laid on It. A door at the
Tar end of the room opened, and a tnll
and very handsome woman entered..
I led bj two men and gagged. She wa��
[forced to tbe block and the executioner
'ordered to do bis office. With soni*
hesitation he obeyed. Instantly he woi
ajrnin blindfolded, hurried downstairs.
���placed In the carriage and driven ofT at
foil speed. To all bis Inquiries and re
monstrances bis escort remained obstl
nately deaf, but on reaching his hom��
a very large sum of money was glvei
him, with a warning that be would d(
well never to attempt to soive th��
mystery or tell of that night's work.
Shortly afterward he heard that tbt
Duchess of Wtirttemberg, sister of
Queen Caroline, bad died suddenly <n.
that very ulght. She was a woman ot
great beauty an! known to be an oti
Jo< t of gnat jealousy and suspicion to
her husband, who was said to keep hei
In enforced seclusion, and. from lnqui
rles he made, the executioner felt nc
doubt that this ill fated daughter ol
tho house of Brunswick had been thi
gagged lady who had beed thus s*
eretly ddnc to death by bis band, -
