He had taken same and afterwards  turned it over to Constable Stephen  son.  Gcfo. Evans wras the next witness.  He had accompanied Nicholas when  getting the gun, and meiely confirmed previous witness' statd^tient in  this ledpect. Fie had, however, opened the revolver, and saw what he  called njoiwder smoke still in the bar- '  rcl. He thought the gun had been  fired very recently. Upon cross-examination, he explained that what'he"  meant by powder smoke,, was burnt  powder adhering to the barrel.  Had Killed a Man  Mrs. Lillie Graham gave what was  perhaps,    the most sensational    evidence of the day.

He tdadsplayed  a revolver, and staled" that he   ���������was  going back tp tbe States shortly. He  had, he said, killed a man over therte  a while ago, but he thought he would  go back again. Prisoner Jiad followed  watness from the store ho, the kitchen '  and back several times ,as she was doing her work,, talking most of      the  time as though he did not know what  he was saying.

Witness next produced a bullet .which had ,been found in  the pantry of the Dalton house and  which had apparently come from a  .:*8 calibre revolver. The latter was  also produced, and is  a live-chamber,  bullet he had iound in the base ol  the skull, which had apparently tra-  \cised downward and loagea at the  back of the neck.

It was  impossible without a moie thorough  e\ituuuation, to say "hether they  weie stains oi human ib-^od or not.  Witness was also asked to give opinion of scratches upon the hand of  the prisoner, but stated that he did  not wish to be emphatic upon that  jioint. Thoj looked to him as though  causud by sciatches from a woman's?  Iingei nails, although they were,-perhaps lathct wide apart ior this conclusion.

"  Discussing< the King's decision in  regard to the invitation to visit  Canada the Outlook says: "Thc tlif  Acuities in thc way of a visit. lo  Canada have been exaggerated. For  the first time the mother country  had the power to take a stop of  real importance in -the development  of imperial unit5\ The other colonics   would have been   satisfied to  bo  , represented by Canada. In according such a visit of tbe crown as a  national    recognition    the  issues    in-  ��������� volved were so vast that nothing  should have stood in "their way, except for reasons far weightier than  given  in Lord  Elgin's  despatch.  The Spectator hopes that at a  future date His Majesty will be nlilo  to visit a country of pre-eminent, loyalty, whicli by actual achievement'  and. the splendor of ill destiny is  regarded as thc first -among the alii  ed nations   of thc empire.  Recognizing  the  necessity    for    the  '    presence of thc   King at home   nov,  the  Statist  urges   a change   in    His  Majesty's  duties,  giving  more     freedom in the future.  The Yorkshire Post publishes the  new Canadian immigration law. In  an-editorial comment it says the  law might have been enacted in some  /quite alien country, instead of a part  of the empire. Canada is perfectly  right to set barriers agaiust undesirable aliens. It is a different matter, it says, to have the same right  against undesirable persons of the  same race, and protests against the  Idea that this country, which bears  the naval expenses of the empire,  has no right outside of England.  ���������At the Birmingham distress committee. Alderman Barrow- suggested;  to the distress committees that they  establish an agency in Canada, to  look after arriving immigrants.  Major R. G.

The  year just closed has been in some respects the busiest in many years.  A large oxpeiultture has been made  by the board in renewing the heating ���������olart, tiiis was forced upon us  on account-of .the'large "amount of  coal used during, the winter of 1S>05  and tt)0(>, it,was then felt that soiuq  thing must be done to .effect a.saving, and at the"same Lime gave us be!}  ler results, with this in view, tho services of Mr. W;'.Lech: of Vancouver,  an expert ' Moating Engineer, were  secured, after a thorough- examination he advised the removal of the  old plant, and the installing of ' a  warm water beating system, this was;  done last fall at a cost of. over ������1,-  500.00, the new plant has proved  satisfactory, warming the whole  premises in a proper manner, and at  t'ho same lime tho fuel bill .is much  lighter,  Commencing with the 1st. of February 'last. a training school for  nurses was established In connection  with the (hospital, Hi is step was deoni  ed advisable so that, nurses passing through n course of training in  tho hospital, could be awarded diplomas of efllcionc.y according- to their  abilities, and at the same time our  own board could depend on the services of the members of the staff for  a 'definite time.

C, 25th July.  1^06.  After a short discussion as to who  was   entitled   to vote for the new officers, it was Anally decided to ailo.w\  all present   at   the meeting 0ne vote.  Mr.   W.  H.  Morton  was appointed  Chairman   and the election  of    officers    was     proceeded  with   and   resulted as   follows:  Tresident���������J.   Booth,   (re-elected.)  Vice President���������J. Mahrer,  (re-elect  ed.)  For Secretary there were two nominations. Mr. S. Gough, was nominated by Mayor Planta, seconded by.  William Manson, M. P. V., and Mr.  John Shaw was nominated by W.  Dick, jr., seconded by F. Snowden.  On being put to a vote Mi1. Shaw,  was elected by the vote of lSto 16.  Mr. Win. Manson was elected treasurer, and the Board of Directors werd  elected as follows:   ���������  Messrs. J. Mullett, W. H. Morton,  Wm.'Dick, Jas. Booth and M. Bray.  Mr. T. Graham moved, seconded  by Mr. A. R. Johnston, a vote of  thanks which was unanimously passed to thc retiring Board for the able manner in which t'hey had conduct*  ed the business of Uie Hospital during the past year.  Votes of thanks were also passed  to tho Western Fuel Company, Hon.  Jas. Dunsmuir, Union Brewing Co.,  Mrs. Dr. Davis and her troupe, and  a special vote of thanks to the Ladies auxiliary for their faithful work  in .connection    with  the work of   the  this change in thc work of the hospital, which, at the same time plac  cd it on a better footing, considerable money had lo bo spent. At the  present .time the work is in its infancy, yet I know that thc change  has increased the efficiency of the in  stitmion, Ihe full development of the  new order of things will rest upon  the uew board to be appointed tonight,, and the successful working out?  of the scheme will largely depend  upon tho manner iin which they main*  tain the control of tho business of  the hospital.  To meet the expenses incurred in  carrying out the matters above referred to, we were compelled to  make an appeal to our citizens as  v.-'11 as to the people of the neighboring city of Ladysmith, I am  pleased to be able 'to say that wo  received a most liberal response. In  this relation I should like to make  special men! ion oi the > substantial  grant made by lhe government in  aid or tbe new heating plant, also  tho generous donations the Western  Fuel Company, the underground employees of the Western Fuel Co and  the Artizans' Club, and ,as well the  kindness of Mrs. Dr. Davis, and r-  Elugli Allan and his fellow clubmen, in getting up entertainments in  aid of the funds of thc hospital. Our  income for the past year enables us  to retire from office without leaving  any obligations for our successors,  that are not fully covered by cash  now in hand and other sums due  to the hospital.  1 would like to refer to the need  of more private wards, these are rev  enue producers, any reasonable expense that may be incurred for that  purpose will soon be returned in fees  and thus the income of the hospital  will be increased. A rearrangement  of the Fcner Ward should also receive the attention of the new  board, with these matters attended  to the accomodation will be" largely  mci eased.  "L.'fcel.   it  incumbent    upon  me     to  refer to  the satisfactory  manner     in  which Doctor  Davis has attended   to  i ~ I Hospital,  his duties  as  Hospital   surgeon,   also J,  ^ ^   votc of tlmnks   was paS9  to   the   care   exercised   by   the   mem-       ���������       ^   whohn(l..n   ftny     Jimiinel.  bers  of  the  stall'  in  the' performance ^^^     t<Wd . ltus    hospllnrs  of their duties,  tlie extremely  ��������� light  <! success  mortality during the past year shows - ^-^ ^ ^   ^^   sccotu^  that every care  is   taken    to    ensure] ^      ^ ^   ^^ ^ ^^  ed  a hearty   vote, of  thanks   for  tho  the successful  treatment of  patients.  In past .years complimentary reference lias been made to the good  work carried on by the Ladies Aux.  iliary in connection with the hospital, thc past year has not been  ail exception, the members of the  Ladies' Auxiliary deserve the best  thanks of this meeting for .their  continued exertions in aid of the  welfare of all departments of the institution.  As in ' former years, liberal donations of coal have boon received  from thc Western Fuel Co., and the  Wellington Colliery Company, tho  I lion Brewing Company has donated  ice  as  it  has been  wanted,    and  nbie manner in   which he had  carried  out 'his duties   as Medical Officer.
