Cieelman was the  man to whom McLean made confes-  sion while Creelui.in :doing service us  a stool pigeon, was confined with Mo  Lean in one cell at Walla-Walla, and  'it,was on Creelman's testimony ttia$  the officials largely relied to convict McLean of the Lewis murders.  When Joel Ilindmaii, .detective for  the Northern Pacific railroad, began'  his investigations into the past life  and caiccr of McLean, hoping .-to-, secure evidence to ' connect the half-  breed with the Boaimouth hold-up,  in Montana, - he decided to place a  man in the cell with McLean in thc  hope of securing <a confession. Crcel-  inan was then serving time at Walla  Walla for burglary, and Hindman selected lum to play the part of confidant of the bandit.  The plan worked out better than  was hoped. McLean becoming convinced of Cieeluian's friendliness,  told him, Cieelman says, of many of  hTs cumes, including the double niui-  dei of Judge and Mrs. Lewis, i at Al-  liiiia, in Lincoln county" arid, so the  o/bceis state, 'of several other murders and other crimes.   ,     '     *  Cieelraah's sentence'was served and  "he secured his liberty several weeks  ago.

Yesterday  afternoon  Provincial Officer    Cassidy  learned  that    Metral  hi ought a deer into  town,   and after  securing a search warrant, went    to  Metial's house,  where he found    the  carcass of  the deer,  and took away  same to be used as   evidence in   the  c.ise,   which   was  tried last   evening  bcfoie Justices of the Peace   Ma the*  son and Stewait.    Mr. Russel Simpson, repiesented the accused.    On the  information   being  lead,   Mr.    Simpson stated that it would be unneces-  saiy to take evidence in the    case,  as he  would plead guilty to the offence, but he  wished to ask that    a  nominal fine be imposed in view    of  ..the     fact'   that it was the fust oi-  tenee.     In fact the act had been en-  tiiely unprcmediated.      Metral    had  gone out hunting for  wild   pigeons,  with  a shot    gun.     The deer     had  juniued up in front of him, and without thinking, Metral had raised   his  prisoner had pleaded guilty, and no  evidence taken. rThe cases had been  taken to a higher court and thrown  out, it being decided that the conviction had been made without any  evidence.  Mr. Simpson admitted that such  was the case, but offered to waive  any evidence of the prosecution, admitting whatever they might have to  produce without having the witnesses sworn. He was, he said, willing  to sign a paper to' that effect if  their honots desired. The-fact of  the matter was, the accused was  guilty and admitted it, -and as 0ha  had not put the prosecution to any  expense or delay and it was the first  offence, counsel asked that the Jus- '"  tices deal leniently with him. Justice Matheson said he did not bc-  lievcin being too, easy in these  cases. While the house was m session last winter, he had noticed that  this question of leniency amongst the  Justices of'the Peace of the Province had come up for discussion and  the piactice had been condemned.

The Vancouver World says: There  is a probability .that when the Mc-  ,Biide government appeals to the people for a verdict on its long list of  things done that should not have  been done, Mr. J. H. Hawthornthwaite, socialist member for Nanaimo, Avill be a candidate in Vancouver for "the Provincial legislattue.  Seen today at the Dominion hotel",,  Mr. Hawthornthwaite said: "Yes,  there is a movement among the mem  bers of the socialist party in" Vancouver, to have me inn here. -I, like  my two colleagues, am in the Jiaiuls  o! the party. If it is considered in  the best interests of socialism as  ���������we' understand it to run here I will  do so. Peisonally ,1 would much  prefer to remain with my friends in  Nanaimo, who have stood by me in  the past and who, I feci, deserve  my best efforts at all times."  Other socialists seen cxpicssed  themselves as anxious that Mr. Ilaw-  , thomthwaite should run here. They  'think that some other good man endorsed by him could carry Nanaimo  and that he would undoubtedly be  elected in Vancouver if he ran here,  and in that way the socialist party  would gain a seat.   o -  HANDWRITING AND HEALTH.

Union-made Capital & Nugget Cigars  SUMMER DIARRHOEA  IN CHILDREN  During the hot weather of the summer months the first unnatural looseness of a child's bowels should have  immediate attention,(so as to check  tlie disease before ib becomes serious.  All that is necessary is a few doses  of Chamnierlain's Colic, Cholera and  Diarrhoea Remedy followed by a dose  of castor oil to dense thelsysteim.  Rev. M. O. Stockland, Pastor ol the  first M.E. Church, Little Falls, Min-  ncsots, writes: "We have used Chamberlain's Colic���������' Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy for several years and  find it a very valuable remedy, especially for summer disorders in children."

Tt took   ten innings   to decide   tho  question  of supremacy,  and     thong  the    home    boys   finally  lost,   it     is  no    discredit   to them having put up  such a game   against  the strong lin  up   of the visitors.  It  was  praclically  a pitcher's  battle   from Jir.sl   to  last.    P.ot'h   Miller  for   the  homo   team   and   llolness    o  Victoria were in tine form, the form  or  allowing     six  hils  and     striking  out eighteen men,  while tho latter a  lowed   only   four      hiUs  and     struck  out four opponents.

As Mr. TtawUiornthwaitc ha4 nothing to say in thc political line, tho  subject drifted to tlie industrial aspect of things in thc various centres  visited   by the Socialist leader.  British Columbia, he said, is iu  tho midst of one of the greatest  booms in tho history of tho country. Every point he had visited,  with the single exception of the Slo-  can country, was forging ahead by  leaps and bounds. Mines were work  ing full time. Uie saw mills werp  running full force, aud labor was  everywhere in greater demand, than ,  for many years past.

Fear was  expressed tjhat the demand . for labor  would cause the repeal of the $500  head tax on Cliinfcse. He hoped, however, that this would not be tyie  case, for ho liad strenuous objections to any oi the Asiatic races.
