Judge Scott, of the district  court decided  that  the charges     of  attempts on  the part of Mrs.  Cody  to     poison her husband and allcga--  tions had    not been proven.    Judge  Scott  asserted   that   the -testimony  showed that Mrs.  Cody had always  been a good mother and a fond and  indulgent wife.      Judge  Scptt  said'  "The first cause of action In  this  suit is  the charge of poisoning     on  December 111.     The evidence  wholly  fails to support this issue, but shows J  the defendant  was  trying to   rescue  the  plaintiff  from  a state of  intoxication and administered, not poison,  but remedies which she deemed bene-  iicial to' hini.  'His inability, to speak  on this.occasion did not conic   icpni  these  remedies,   but came from   his  extensive use of intoxicants,"  Judge Scott also found that ther<;  was  iro  evidence  that she  had even  threatened     her  husband's   life  and  that when attending the funeral     of  her daughter  Aria at Rochester,    ..

Bczobrazoff's  in-j connection",with the Yalrr timber-concessions. .   The publications  include a  secret memorandum of General    Ku-  ropatkin  pointing out that the   war  would     be inevitable if Russian.interests     were extended  into  Koiea.  The necessity for increased  taxation  to meet the expenses Pf  the war   is -  recognised and the minister of finance  has  submitted  projects  to  the' council of the empire, including taxes on  beer,     matches,  etc.  and  graduated  tax on the salaries of government officials beginning with one per cent on  salary of over $300, which, altogether,      will   realize  about  $11,000,000.

DOMINION  PARLIAMENT  Ottawa,      March      22���������There  were  crowded     galleries in     the IIouso ol  Commons     today     when Sir Wilfrid  Lannei    proposed the second reading  of (he     autonomy bill.   He said that  on all occasions  lie had  adhered     to  (he principle    of     provincial  rights.  In (his     case as'in   the first he was  moving the following amendment:  tion.   In     1S75 be was a  member of  the     Mackenzie    government and refused to     interfere with New Brunswick legislation     because that province had no system of public schools.  Tn 1889    he supported Sir ,loim Mac-  doiuld when the latter refused to intend e with     the Jesuit estates acl.  In     189J he     bad stood    up for the  rights of Manitoba when Sir Mackenzie wanted to force separate schools,  mid now,  m 1005 he wanted lo sLairl  on lhe s_mc platlorm in-e.\ten.ling to  the minority in All.eita   and Saskatchewan,   under   lhe constitution,  tha'  light   to enjoy separate .schools which  was     given to     them     in 1875.   He  stood on     the letter  of the constitution.   IL      was said that because the  tciiitoiies were not provinces at the  time of    the -union they were not en-  _itlcd to    separate schools.     lit cited a recent   judgment  of the supren.c  com I    which held  that Canadian Pacific    lauds in      the Terntoues were  iice     liom taxation    lor all  tune to  ������01111..  i-\Ir.

W. S.

S. i. ielding and  asked an increase of the duty on corroded lead, or AvhUelead; to thirty  per cent. Thc present duty is uv.i  per cent. Mr. Fielding was called upon by Mr. Cornish, the representative of a firm which has contracts let  to thc extent of $200,000 for the erec  tion of corroding works in Montreal,  and which expects to" expend a'���������hundred thousand and obtain a plant  with a,n output of 7,0-t0 tons by November next. Thc company is a  branch of a Wisconsin firm and is to  he incorporated in thc Dominion as  the Carter Lead Corroding-Works < f  Canada.  Mr. Cornish, accompanied by J. L.  I.ctallick, representative of the silver lead miners' association of I'.rjt-  jxh Columbia, and Mr. W. A. Caliber M.

The present duly on pig-lead is ;.."������  per cent., on corroded lead, five per  cent. If the increase- should be given  there will have to be some increase  in the rat_ of duty on mixed paints,  as corroded lead is a raw material  of the pain I, manufacturer.  Air.

I   SPORTS  ���������y���������_t:  LACROSSE.  The     Seattle P.    I. in speaking "of  the lacrosse     of B.    C, says as follows:  April 8 has been fixed by the British Columbia Lacrosse League as the  date of its next meeting, and the Seattle lacrosse club has its assurance  that at that time it will be admitted  to, membership.  The Jocal organisation has appointed *H. E. Kentoly, Ed.- Milne  and Lionel Yorke as a committee of.  t/hrce to represent the ciub at the.  meeting,which takes, place at Victoria. ",.*.'       ~    '  There is every promise that th<J  meet will be a lively one. .There is  still a row on between thc Westmin  ster end and the Vancouver team over a two-year-old championship, and  that old-time troul Ic is expeeted'to  be ' aired at length. At . th3 same  . time there may be some slight opposition to the admittance of Seattle  contingent, but the locals will go pr>  pared to meet every requirement oi  thc leagus.  Each team in   the league is required to deposit $100   as un appearance-  forfeit,     and to    keep     the amomi'  posted  during  thc season.   The West  minster     people    have already questioned     whether or not   the Seattl.  team was able to meet that particu  lar point.   In    reply to the question,  the club already has thc   hundred on  deposit, and     has,in its membership  enough     more hundreds     to pay for  missing eusry    game on the season's  schedule,   should the whim strike- it.  One more question that caused worry in the British   mind was whether  or not the   Americans could lose the'  habit tihcy have    ot playing.on Sunday.   The     local club     has already  agreed    to make Saturday afternoon  its playing     day, and will shape al  - arrangements accordingly.''  There has been some talk of tin  "eluding .Tacoma in the league, but  there now seems little liklibood that  _ that town will maUa it. Taeoma's  team last year was a weak one at  best,- and seems no more promising  this scaspn. As the league requires  that clubs admitted to its membership shall lie capable of putting up a  worthy scrimmage there secms^ little chance unless -the Tacomans go  into the "importing" business pn a  large scaje.  Mm. Kennedy has news from Portland that there will be a rattling  good team in that town during ,thc  season, but that Portland will not  seek to go into thc British Columbia league, the distance being too  great and, the expense correspondingly heaw. rTowe-er, there is nothing  in the league rules which prevents _.  league member from playing exhibition matches with non-member organizations, and the Seattle club is/  looking forward to a series of off-  day matches with the boys from-the  sister state.  _o���������  - THE ' RING.

RESOURCE OK V4^  COUVER ISLAND  Vancouver     "Island  offers  as  good  chances to the farmer, prospector or  investor as does any part of British  Columbia.    It is not easy to find a  section     of country that is exactly  right in all respects. It' is," perhaps,  itiipOssjble to Vrnd'such a country', bjjt  for     a fair chance to makp a home  wifih  comfortable  surroundings     the  section of country ajjong the line of  thp Esqnimalt and Nanaimp Railway  js well worth considering.   A few of  tlie   most  prominent   of  the  island's  prgduptiops.  and     natural   respr-roes  oujy are mentioned ip this article.  ���������o���������  Coal Deposits  (a.)   First among the natural    resources are thc great coal measures  Timber,  (b.) The value of the immense timber resources     of Vancouver Island;  with its high1- class Douglass fir, ce-  -lar etc., has already been realized by  the great lumber companies.' The Victoria Lumber Company, of Chcmain-  .-���������s,  has among its' members shrewd.  Wisconsin and Michigan lumber kings  who.have"     secured, .and  now'hold,  hundreds of millions of feet of splendid  timber and ate continually     increasing  th_ir  holdings. , TKeir  . export trade now running from 30,000,-  000 to 50,000,000     of feet per year  will no doubt be. largely increase. 1 by  11 he beginning of work on thc Panama |  '    :-...',  for the demand, which will lie1  ^-.pplicd largely, from this section for  limber to uas on the great'work, will  amount to hundreds of millions -   of  feet.     Other    companies, Shawnigan  Lake," Haslam  and  other companies  are turning out large quantities'  of  lumber and- shingles.  Harbors and Waterways,  (c.)    Harbors  and  waterwaysv. in  conn action  with  Vancouver Island is  n subject-understood much tetter by  men who- "go-down to sea"     than  landsmen.   But opposite to the mainland and*,direct~across from Vancouver,      Oyster  Harbor  or Ladysmith  Bay, has long been krlown as a safe  and commodious harbor.   It is    one  where large  wharves are already, established in connection with the coal  export trade     and with the freight  business, as the point of transfer by  the C.P.R. for the Island freight. In  connection  with  this matter it     is  worthy of remark that for : the last ���������  three years the transfer barge     has  made its daily trip and has rarely, is  ever, been delayed on account of bad  weather  or x unfavorable conditions,  and has never met with an accident.  Nanaimo     Harbor",     Departure" Bay,  Chamainus and other safe harbors are  found along     the coast.   Near     the  north end of-the island safe harbors  are found that may yet he r.sed    as  last ports of call for steamers leaving Victoria *' for the Orient,     fast  trains,    connecting   from  Ladysmith  landing,  or conveying .to,  passengers  and mails. '.I'-.  Fisheries. ," .  The waters" of Vancouver Island  teeni with -fish. H.rring in vast quantities visit t>ur shores. A profitable  trade in fisheries which includes, of?  our more northern shores, halitat and  other deep sea fish, is being built up  and is capable of much greater development.  facilities, , but not until these are  provided can they ship out ore for  treatment. Another, mineral sec-,  tion is at- the Campbell river upon  what is known aa the reserve of tlie  E. & N. grant. The total value of  the mineral product to date for Vancouver Island and vicinity is given  by( the Provincial Mineralogist, Mr.  W.' F. Robertson, as 275,322 tons of  a value of $4,378,370.  Pottery Clay.  The clay found in the Extension  Mines is-regularly shipped to Victoria to the pottery works for the  manufacture of sewer pipes and pottery of-'various kinds.  Stone and Lime.  Magnificent building stone is found  at .various points.   The- quarry     at  Duncan, lying contiguous to the    E.  &  N...railroad, furnishes  high   class '  building , stone that should be in de- J  mand- where heavy stone work is re- ���������  quired, While lime quarries also   exist on the line of the railroad.  Good  brick clay is found in Nanoose harbor above Nanaimo,  and    limestone  on the line of the railroad, near    or  at Esquiaialt Harbor.  Water: Power.  Of, water, power, some .very large  and permanent streams are found  with natural' falls, some again can  without great expense be developed.  It seems safe to assume that great  water power can be secured, comparatively cheap, at various points  on Vancouver Island. Particularly is  this the case in the northern part  of the Island.  . .     Agricultural Wealth.  Agricultural' development on   Vancouver . Island' must be very    great  in the immediate future.'   Tracts of  land  will each year  be cleared0   and  J put into    crops if railway  facilities  are given to certain  sections    .that  now find valuable, farm lands too far  from markets.    Included in   farming  stock raising is becoming a marked  feature in Island development.  High  grades of     cattle are being    raised  from inported stock,  and the butter  and cheese of  Vancouver Island     is  now well known -for its high ,grade.  ��������� Hunting and Fishing.  The big gaine of Vancouver Island  has not beep hunted extensively and  is abundant in certain sections. Deer  and other four-footed game is found  in all parts of the Island.    .  Ducks,  geese,     pheasants, "grouse and quail  are to be found in season in    numbers that gladden the heart of    the  hunter.   . With the development   that  will  result  from  the  extension     ol  tlie lines of the E.; & N.     Railway,  North Vancouver Island will increase  its wealth many fold.   Mines will be  opened'and other natural souiccs   of  wealth     now valueless, '    will,  with  transportation,  soon  prove  to      the  world  that as a whole  there is    no  other part. of the rich Province     of  British  Columbia     that ��������� can    equal  Vancouver Island.  ���������o���������  Minfng.  In connection with the mjneraj developments of the Island, it must be  understood that-only during -thfs past  five years has any attempt at metal  mining been made on a large scale.  On the west coast of-the-Island,'beginning at East Sook, mineral has  been found and small shipments  made from San Juan, Port Renfrew,  Alberni, Uchueklesit, Clayoquoit,  Kennedy Lake, Taferno Inlet, - (Deer  Greek)," Bedwcel Sound, (Bear River), Trout River, Clayoquoit Sound,  Sidney Inlet, Ahousett-,:-Alktlasei.;  Nootk'a, "'' Kyuquo't and Quatsino,  while in the middle of the Island1 at  Central lake a large deposit of mineral has recently been discovered,  .

Thc Victoiia Times says:  "On     April     13th.,     the    annual  iiieet-ing ot the Victoria -Amateur Association' will,: be held  and local, clubs  in Lending senior, 'intermediate, or junior .teams  already  have ���������'.commenced  organizing.

The     question is, then, what is -to  be done?   Let us be honest with God  and with     ouisclves and go to Him  and tell     Him     that   we have been  wicked and sinful that we have   set  too much value on  pleasure,   let us  ioisake our evil ways  and  return to  the Lord who  will have mercy upon  us and  who is ever ready to forgive.  There's joy in the presence of the an-  gclsof God over one sinner that    re-  pentelh.    Let  us   weigh  the  matter  seriously and come to  a decision    on  this all.important question.   We have  everything  to gain and  nothing     to  Jose by being bumble followers of tho  Lord  Jesus Christ,    lie knows' what  is     best for     ns and  will make all  things work.together for our good..:  In     conclusion  I would say let'us'  give our whole lives to the service of  God.   Alay it not be said of the people of Ladysmith that they are  lovers of pleasure more  than lovers   of  God.   Let us assemble on the Lord's  day to  worship Him and thank Hjiui  for.
