Prior  to coming  to  Vancouver Mr,  Schumaker  placed   orders   with   various mills on Pugct Sound for nearly  a.OOO.C'iO     shingles.   Mr.  Schumaker  stai. .1   today   that   there   is   a growing , i.*ui:iiid      for   British   Columbia  he   stoui'ly   protested   his   innocence,  but he was found guilij   and sent  to  prison  for eighteen months with hard  labor.  Two   weeks ago  John  Doyle, ]  a young  fellow  of twenty-five,     who  , had been  convicted   several   times   of  theft,  voluntarily surrendered  himself  to  ihe police,  and  confessed   that  he  had B'lolon  iS\r.   Seme's   watch.   Loudon  having grown  a hit  too  hot  for  him,  he had  been  "lying  low"     for  some   time  in   the provinces,  he said,  and   had   only   just   heard   that   Flynn  was   "doing  time"   for  the' robbery.  Ife had come forward,   therefore,    to  get an  innocent man  out of jail,  and  was quilc  prepared   to   take  his place  At     the la'tit   Clerkcnwell   sessions  Doyle   reiterated   his   confession,   but  the  police  declared  their  belief that  it   was unlrre   and   bad been      made  sobly  for  the  purpose  of getting judicial   clemency   exorcised   in   Flynn's  behalf.   Kvcnl'.ially   (he  case was postponed  for further iii,vestie.viliou. Doyle  was  arraigned   ag*a n   recently.      The  prosee-iung attorney   slated   that   th3  in\cslii**ition  which had been made Iw  the  police on   behalf of the  Home  Office  had   only  strcngllic*in*d   their  con-  "Vou  sav vou arc guillv?"  "Yes,  sir."  "What else have you to say?"  "Nothing,  except   that Flynn is  innocent."  The judge,  whose  decision  docs' not  admit      of revision,     then   sentenced  Doyle   to   eighteen   months'   hard labor���������the same sentence  that  had  been  passed   on   Flynn..   No   consideration  whari. was  shown   Doyle  bscause  he had \oI.n, a.ily surrendered himself to save another man from'punishment'.  And  this sacrifice is  without avail.  If the.judge's assumption that he   is  guilty  is correct,   Flynn   is   innocent.  Doyb's  conviction  should  have been  followed   immediately   by  an       order  for Flynn's. release.    But Flynn still  rontini.es  to serve his  sentence. Tho  only course open   to  him is  to appeal  to   the Home Oflice,  and  the      Home  Ofiice having put  on  record  its opinion   that,   Doyle  did   not steal       the  Watch,   will  not  stultify  itselT      by  pardoning lhe.man who was first convicted  of  the crime.

A,pergonal sketch of Governor L*  Toilette contributed to Harper's Weekly by Earle Hooker Eaton contains a  new and entertaining anecdote of President   Roosevelt   which   Mr.    Eaton  quotes in the president's own words.  Mr. Roosevelt, It seems, was present  at a reception attended by Governor  and Mrs. La Follette.   The president  and M!rs. La Follette were standing in  one  comer  engaged In   conversation  nnd eating ice cream.   He was doing  the bulk of the talking:, and she was  an attentive and unwavering listener.  "Suddenly  I  discovered," savs  the  pr������iident. "that for at least five min-  xites  I bad  besn  pouring ice cream  dowa the front of her handsome evening gown.   She had known It all the  time,' but bad not Indicated It by even  the quiver .of an eyelash or  by the  ���������lightest change to tha amiling, Inter-  ���������ated expression .upon her face.   Su*  had simply been too polite to Interrupt me by word or look or move, n������  matter what happened to the gown."  I bed of the, channel may be as easy to  bore through >as the engineers anticipate, and as geological researches appear to show. At the same time, unexpected difficulties may crop up, and  a capital of ������10,000,000 may prove  to he very inadequate for .the purpose  intended.
