Francisco Church.
Special tu Tn P��y��tn>ak.
San   Francisco, Jan. 7.���Durant
was hanged this morning at 10:30 in
the San Quantin penftentary.   Hia
in -ther was with bim when the death
Warrant was read.   Ourant rumsrk ���
cd ti> the gaoler that it we* just what
he expected.   When being led out
of hiicfll 13 tbe gallon*, bis in .alter
said to the officer: "Be sure, It you
hear any knocking. tj c��me quick.
as it will be a reprieve. **   From the
gallows Duraftt ��poke ai follow* i
" to thorn who wish me to sa>a aome-
thing I would just -any this, that I
haw no snliwwlty against ��n*��* oneif��
But those who have persecuted roe,
and who have  bounded  me to my
' ave, innocent as I am. I forgive
���.item all.   They will  receive their
Just does from tbe holy God to whom
1  now go to receive my justice,
which will be the justice given to an
innocent boy, who bas not stained
his hands with thc crimes that have
heen put upon  him  by tbe press of
San Francisco.   But i forgive them
all,  fbr I do not hold anything
against them for it.   I do not look
upon them now as enemies and forgive them, as I expect to ht* forgiven
for anything I have done.   But the
fair fame of California will forever
be blackened with the crime of taking tbe innocent blood.   If the committers of these crimes are discovered or not matters little to uie now,
for I appear before tho whole world
an innocent boy to proclaim my in*
nocence for the last time.   And to
those who have Insinuated that I
was going to spring a sensation of
any kind, 1 can say there is no sensation other than that of which I
have spoken.   Tbey must consider
for themselves who wished to start
a sensation that I am Innocent.   I
say now this day before (Jod,  to
whom I IP to meet my dues, I am
innocent.
After Durrant got through talking
the drop was immediately sprung,
his neck being broken by the -flail.
The execution was a success in every
way.

THE PAYSTREAK, SANDON, B.C., JANUARY 8, im.
THE GAME OP CURLING.
Rules and Expressions -The List of
Local Members.
Tbe "out-turn" of the old year
and the "in-tnra" of the new in
���Sandon finds a large number of San-
donites very much interested in the
������turn"���not of time to eternity, but
of granite spheres, as they describe
a curve in their course on the ice
from the hand of the player to the
skip's broom. Other phrases, as un-
inteligible to the wayfaring man as
a Gaellic praver arc, "Take the
broom," "Don't be heavy," "That
look's well," "That's laid down,"
"See it up," "8weep hard," "All the
way," "Bring it over," "Take it to
Pat Bwrh*s batcher shop; it's a hog.''
To the uninitiated the game at first
seems simple, even foolish, but seme
time you try, and then find there Is
"lots in it." Even old skips admit
there Is "lots in it," as their rock
���passes through to the back yard.
It may be safely said that no outdoor game possesses greater attractions for its votaries, or is more
keenly enjoyed than curling. Unlike football, hockey or lacrosse,
where athletes alone excell, curling
is suitable to venerable years or joyous youth. As tbe pastime is quite
new to many Sandon citisens, we
give a short synopsis of the rules.
Played on a large sheet of ice
about 150 feet in length by 18 feet in
width, with large targets or circles
at either end, the game is a contest
between two teams or "rinks."
Four players constitute a rink. Each
player plays two stones, one stone
alternately with his opponents, until
the full number (16) have been played. The side having one or more
stones nearer the tee than the opposite side count one point for each
stone, and the rink scoring a majority of shots in a given number of
ends or given length of time is declared winner. Great judgment is
required in weight in making a lead,
draw or guard shot, and a true eye,
precision as to playing to the broom,
and nerve are required in running
shots or narrow ports.
The average weight of curling
stones is 36 to 40 pounds, and the
value S20 per pair. They are manufactured only in Scotland. A Scotch
cap is worth $1, a broom 50 cents,
and a season ticket to the Ssndon
Curling olub ��12.50.    .
The club bas now a membership
of 28 players. Five rinks have been
formed, taking in all members who
want their "turn" to play. Following are skips appointed and rinks
formed:
Hood, Wm., skip; N. Remillard,
W. Karr, W. C. Adams, Robert
Cunning, Bruce White.
Grimmett, M. L., skip; H. M. Martin, F. C. Sewell, A. Crawford, Rev.
A. M. Sanford, J. M. Harris.
Main, J G., skin; A. Grierson, G.
H. Winter, W. W. Fallows, F. T.

D. J. McLachlan, G. W. Grimmett,
Thomas Brown
Wilson, W. Ot, skip; B. M. Walton, Dr. Young, J. B. Cliffe, Rev. J.

Three rinks from Kaslo will play
here in the district match. Golden
will be here to play for the Bostock
cup. Borrow the "Annual" from
some of the curlers for full and complete information re rules and technical points, and visit the new rink
west of the electric light- station for
practical illustrations of the game
and ice diagram, where you will be
cordially welcomed.

Tto my mental aeuteness, and
iong time before 1 did any
ting about it.   Through the per-
live of 80 years I can see the
torous side of the case, and enjoy it
well as anybody. *
"It was the day before Christmas, in
7, 'If I remember right, that my first

"���Certainly I could clear him.' I
answered, jokingly; 'a case of thai
kind would come under the head of em-
bexslemeiit or breach of trust, inattv.il
of larceny, and it is not only unconsti
ttitional, but a violation of the writ of
habeas corpus to lock a man up simply
for emhexxling a turkey.'
" 'Mighty tickled to hear it, sah." he

"And before I could utter a word of
protest or stop him, my grinning caller
had drop.ted tne quarter on my writing
table and hastily howi-d himself from

" 'This is a fine joke on me. Wonder
if the black rascal thought I was in
en meat?' muttered I tn myself, picking
up the liberal fee which mv first client
had left behind him. The coin was of
hii ancient date, and somewhat battered, though not sutfici'Jiitiy injured to
depreciate its value as a circulailna
medium. 1 wss still examining it, and
wondering if it would prove a mascot
or otherwise, when my wife came in j
from her Christmas shopping. Handing j.
it to her, I proudly remarked; I
'"There  is my first fee. my denr.|
You may have li fbr a keepsake If you
wish.'
" 'Why, Henry!' she cried, 'where
did you get this quarter? I am positive
that it is tbe very one I gave to Sam
Johnson down at the market this afternoon when I engaged him to bring
home our Christmas turkey!'
"I didn't ask for tbe affidavit," concluded the veteran lawyer,withasmiie,
"I got the witness off the stand as soon
as possible, adjourned court, and then
went out In pursuit of fresh air and Mr.
Johnson. I found him, told him I'd
send him to the penitentiary If he ever
breathed a wotd of the affair; then 1
purchased a duplicate of the embezxled
turkey and sent him home with it (to
my home, I mean), following along behind him to see that he honestly earned
the quarter this time; snd it wss fully
a year later, when prosperity began
smiting upon my efforts at last, that I
plucked up sufficient courage to tell the
story of my fee, even to my wife."

New York, Dec. 29-���John Bergman,
who last night accosted a policeman on
T.iird avenue with: "Here, copper, take
this corpse to the morgue," and sent s
bullet through his own brain, falling
dead at the officer's feet, is said to have
been formerly a wealthy resident of
Chicago. It is said that Bergman lost
his money in speculation on tbe board of
trade of Chicago, after which he came

tlie aid which relatives extended to bim

his room waa found the following note:

MR. OAOB OKTS HIS ANSWER.
Secretary Gage of the U. S. trees-
ury recently assailed the American
Federation of Labor through its president, Mr. Gompers, tor having the
audacity to criticise and condemn, by
resolution, bis pet scheme of currencv
"reform.* Mr. Gage was apparently
mneh exercised over tbe matter, and
went ao fair as to promise tbat il Mr.
Gompers would show him that the
gold standard was injurious to the
country generally he would quit the
gold cause and get off his gilded
perch. Mr. Gage did not use this
identical language but his meaning
was tbe same. Mr. Gompers has
complied with Mr. Gage's expressed
wish and the information wanted has
been tarnished him. But Mr. Gage
will not keep his promise. None are
so blind as those who will not see. and
Mr. Gage will continue in darkness,
shaping bis currency ideas in tbe
narrow confines of Wall street, in
compliance with the single standard
policy of tbe money-changers.
Mr. Gompers' reply is very pointed
and his argument forcible, and Mr.
Gage will find small consolation in ic.
In part he says:
Those resolutions declare against
your proposal for more thoroughly
committing our country to the gold
standard, a plan for destroying our quarter ofa centary as being, In ecu-
greenbacks and substituting bank j nomic language, an appreciation ul
notes; a plan for weakening the con-igojd.   The facts are beyond dispute."
trol ofthe national government over a,��� p,^-*. ��.��__4��� 1     ...
tbat most important of all measures,  8lr Roberl8 ****** wa* * *n��*
the measure ot values, and strength
the issuance of bonds instead in the
sum of |2O0tO00^OOO, which we will
still owe and upon which we shall be
required to pay interest. Tbe incon
sistency of your statement and your
plan seems glaring.
Should Mr. Gage attempt to prove
that the perpetuation of the gold
standard would not result in making
money dearer and everything measured by money cheaper, he will have
to combat and Jisprove the compilations of such world-famed statisticians asSoetbeer, Sauerbeck, and the
London Economist. He will have tn
prove tbat dozens of men like Sir
Robert GifTen, Europe's eminent sop
porter of the gold standard, and
Speaker Reed ofthe present house of
representatives of the United States,
do not know what they are talking
a tout.
When the royal British commission
was appointed to inquire into the agricultural depression of Europe Sir
Robert Giffen was a member. The
commission reported thai the depression was directly attributable to the
appreciation of gold, the standard
money, resulting from the demonetization of silver. Sir Robert dissented from the majority report, not
on this point, however. As a remedy
fbr the evil the report suggested a
fuller recognition of silver as a standard money, if not straight bimetal
liam. It was this suggestion that Sir
Robert would not agree to. In bis
dissenting memorandum he.stated
that in his opinion "it was a great
misfortune that some monometallic,
as appeard In the coarse of the evi
dence before the commission, have
refused, and still refuse, to r-ecognize
the general fall of prices in tbe Isst
eningtbe banks; a plan aiming at
things to adjust themselves on the
gold basis; that, since the world had
what, you callVfeorrency i^orm," and ; adjusted itself to the gold standard, it
which we call bank monopoly. would ^ Qnwf8e to dhMrb ^ flnj|n

tbe sentiment of Mr. Giffen. It was
our pleasure, or displeasure, to hear
that eminent gentleman say that he
was "one who wanted to see low
his toil, cuts down wages and profits,
thereby destroying the incentive to
enterprise, leads to industrial stagnation, enforced idleness, distress ard
public suffering. . . . You should
at least show that the perpetuation of
the gold standard will not result in

Tbe gold product for the United States
