Defendant, "If I could sao 'what 1  wanted to say' I should say something." - . .'':''  After some argument , with the  court Mrs. Rickards decided she had  nothing more to say and that she  would not call any witnesses on the  case,:but she had a regiment of  them; when her case against Johnson  came up. She didn't care how this  case resulted -but she' would push her  case against Johnson if it cost her  $50.  Mr. Matheson announced that she  was fined $10 and costs, $13i, alto-,  gether. Defendant asked to have her  case put off until another night. The  court agreed 1 to i-dj,o"rn it until  Wednesday at seven o'clock-and told  Mrs. Rickards if she did not pay up  at once she would have to go ro jail  for a month. This gave Mrs. Richards a chance to make a little speech  and "it was not to be lost. Smiling  pleasantly'around and striking a stag  ey attitude,  she said:      "Well,  now,  that avouW give me a chance of a.  cheap trip to iVictoria. ..They  couldn't niake me' do hard labor. The  only thing they could make me do  would be to make me cook and 'then  I'd have the best of it for cook al-  Bob, where ways has the ipick of the house. I  should  like atrip  to Victoria."  She then gathered about her her  train of attendants, of all ages and  si7,es. who had apparently come to  court with the intention of defending their leader through thick and  thin, and again smiling coyly at  the blushing members of the bench  swept majestically from the court.  ma am.

Capt.

Capt. Hill was  cau'gfct iii. the same storm which-  wrecked the Melfort and his vessel had a narrow escape from, drift  ing ashore. He attributes the escape" to the-fact that the ship  was heavily laden, and also stated that, in his opinion the loss of  tho Melfort was directly due ' to  her  lightened  condition.  The Scottish Lochs came around  from -Cardiff, Wales, loaded with  coal far Bremerton. The vessel  is now discharging her freight.  ' On November 2S one of her sailors was lulled by a wave. The  man was standing on the forecastle  head when a heavy sea swept him  completely over the bow of the vessel.

A WORD ON  school mm  BY PROLETARIAN  Editor Ledger, Sir:��������� I have been  somewhat amused, ta.1 though in no  way edified hy our newly self-constituted champion of justice, who declares he willi defend his views against  all and sundry. I'm afraid his good  resolution would be shaken if the  night watchman came along. I  have not* the pleasure of the gentleman's acquaintance but from the tone  of his letter I imagine him ca table  of the manslaughter of,his own mo-  Iher-inlaw. I ta> e cxxeptio'i to one  or two things this man behind the  gun sees fit to remark. *��������� think  that although tiie Educational Department have an Inspector named  Wilson, he at least is a gentleman,  truthful and fearless in the execution  of what he conceives to be his duty,  and 1 helie\e that Trustee did not  misquote him, neither do I consider  his   remarks deictyafsory      oohceiflnung  the teacher in question.  J beheve the present Board of Trustees have worked without fear, fav'or  or part ality, studying to do justice  to the scholars, the teachers and the  ratepayers, who to a large extent  ate the most interested parties in the  whole  concern.  I believe the Trustees paid a probationer-the paltry sum of $120 during  the last three months for fifty-nine  days work of five hours each. I  doubt if G. R. Wilson could mention  r nv other probationer in a city  school in this province that receded  more during the same time, and I  fail to see why the Ladysmith School  Hoard should be called upon to pay  higher salary 1han any other City  Joard. One would imagine from the  tone of G. R/ Wilson's letter that  the probationer in "uestion had been  deliberately legislated against by the  Board of Trustees.  1 believe the Board of Trustees are  all honorable and upright men and  that all their work since incorporation will begr the strictest investigation of even the man behind the gun.  Anyhow, my embryonic Kingsley  friend,,- the elections are "Close "at  'land and after you have, thoroughly  investigated ah th'c / crookedness and  have a chance to leave your guns   why not contest the election for  ..chool Trustee?, .You will surely  come out at the top of the poll and  l.e '.-ale to pay for probationers more  ihan a paltry $10 a month. I have  no doubt that some day you. will  laUe a tumble without being knocked  down, .hut at the present time you re  mind me of a wise guy that I once  'new who was always after four he-  fo'ir three o'clock.

The French  government's position is that it lias  exhibited sufl'tcient patience in her  attitude toward President Castro  and that the latest represent nt ions'  to President Casiro do not include  a time limit and they cannot be  termed an ultimatum, but they  leave no doubt about the serious, intention of the French government and a mora vigorous tone  than any that hnve preceded. Meantime the French fleet is in the  West Indies awaiting the turn of c-v  cuts.  v ear  is  year,as can be ascertained by refer-  mg to the flguies below. The shrin  kagc 'must not be taken as the  indication that our luel req,uire-  ments have been at allless than in  lOO'l. The apparent diminished  quantity of coal fuel has been  much more than good, by an output this year of lully three million 'U[airels of Fuel Oil in excess  of last year shipments, whereas the  Australian amount has shrunk fully 40 per cent. A new feature has  recently deteliopdd itself inCoIkmial  deliveries being made here by steamers, ithere are several alroaidy chartered, which ��������� have yet to arrive,  with freight, at about 16  per ton, and with the duty of 67  cents per ton, theimporters receive  a very small compensation for the  coal; less than one half the amount demanded for British Coiiim-  ���������bia  coal   at  port   of   shipment.  Tho .{flotations of coal of all  grades have ruled very uniformly  throughout the year, the prices of  steam .girades -have favored the ,bjuy-  ers, having} Fuel Oil for a close  competitor.- This has not been  an advantageous Port for coal car  riers to come to, On Arrival here  they find no profital.������Je outward  V/tisinoss, cither in lumber or cearels  We arc promised a reduction of a.-  bout 25 per cent in tho price of  gas at an early date, this will  necessarily lead to anincreased do  mand for gias stoves for cooking  and   boating  purposes,      and will  naturally diminish the coal consum  pliou for th<*- same purposes. The  labor disturbances in Dritish Col-  j ml .Jin which lasted for about six  months this year, served to diminish the importations from tho  Nanaimo section, and helped toin-  creas2 the Colonial sections, both  as to (Quantity and price. Favorable terms were reached in NovembV''  last, and work has been recommenc  ed. and is now running harmoniously. About SO percent of the  xoal trade is under the control and  supervision of one firm locally.

The product  of 1903 was computed .< to be 21-  000,000 barrels; and for 1902, 13,-  000,000. The amount of crude oil  exported during the year will bo  in the'neighbothood of 800,000 barrels, the amount of oil intankaige  is .estimated to We about 10,000,-  000' barrels, the manufacture of  kerosene has consumed about 4,-  000,000 barrels. The quantity utilizer! in sprinkling roads," and the  manufacture of lubricating oils and  Napatha, the figures of these have  not yet been received for this year  The Railroads of the state are com.  pute-d to bo consuming about 15-  000,000 barrels annually, a greater  boom to railroads than any other  line   of  commerce.  COICE���������The total deliveries nerc  by sail during the year will aggregate 06,511 tons, as against  57,911 tons last year, over fifty  poi* cent of this years deliveries  was shipped from Great Bricain .  remainder came from Belgium and  Germany.  PIG IRON���������The total importation  of  Pigi  Iron   into   this   port wore  13,413 tons, over 85 per cent, was  shipped fiom Great Brita n nlono.  Consumers during the year have  favored   with  fairly  low   prices.  Business generally through the  year has been less prosperous in  the Fuel line than most other lines  of trade, not that the quantity con  sinned is of any diminished amount  under last year, but fuel oil has  controlled' the situation, and it  is hieing handled by n few wealthy  corporations. The outlnok for gan  eral commerce for 1906 is peculiarly promising, for mammoth increase of the Oriental trade, which is  promised us, we will make itself  felt in every branch of business.

SENT TO FIND  THE NORTH POLE  Chicago.-"Go    and find  the North ! ^JJ*  pole," said Frank     B. Noyes, editor [ ^  of the Record-Herald, to Walter Well     "  man, the star reporter of that, paper.  '���������'All right, " said Mr. Welhnaii,  who never was known to balk at an  assignment. This was a few days  ago, and,  as the newspaper man was  ^_^  given carte blanche   in the matter of. Z*&  expense, he     has aliva'iy got the pre-  iimiinai*.    irraugcn::'its      um'er   way.  M.  Santos      Dumont,   the  celebrated  aeronaut,  has been     engaged as con-,.  suiting v aeronauts engineer, and will  take charge, as an expert, of the construction    of the airship     which Mr.  Well man has already decided  shall be  his means of locomotion.  Mr. Weilman is not without some  preparation for this special work. Indeed, in a sense he may be sairt to  have created the assignment. For  months he lias been engaged in study  iug aeronautics and the polar problem, and the result of his investigations was embodied in a 25,00"  word report and submitted to Mr. ������������������^  Noyes, and the conclusion of which ' ���������'") ^  were stated    as follows: I fc :UJ  "I' now roport tn you that the at- I JM6  lainment oi the North Pole hy means i ~JSI  of a dirigible    airship   is  praf-tdcalru   ^j-sj  within a reasonable limit of cost and '3*  time, and    with minimum risk either  of life or failure.  Also that it is jiracticakie to main1-  tain well-nigh constant communication between headquarters station in  northern Spitsbergen, five hundred  and fifty miles, (geographical) and  the pole, and the Record-Herald, by  wireless telegraphy to the wireless  station which v.t* ahall establish at  Haminertest,  and   thence by cable.''  The Record-Ileraia has taken its  reporter at his word .'and has commissioned, him i to solve the problem  which has baffled ten generations along his own lines. He has Lern empowered to build an airship, and hy  ���������has arranged to take with him Santos Dumont, who has entered into  the scheme most enthusiusttitfcuLly.  His progress on.his-arduous trip is  to be reported by wireless.telegraphy  and submarine cable, the former an  aid which, had it been in existence,  might have enabled poor Andre to  sendsomc message as to the fate  which was impending n������d which finally   overtook  him.   o   THE  GRIP.  "Before  we can  sympathize      with  others,'    we must have suffered ourselves"  No  one can  realize the  suffering-attendant  upon  an  attack     of  gripp,   unless   helms   had the  actual  experience.    There is probably no disease      that  causes  so much physical  and  mental agony,  or which so . successfully defies  medical aid.    All danger from the grip, however, may be  '   avoided by  the prompt use of Chamberlain's Cough Remedy.
