WELSH SOLDIER  WRONGLY.CONVICTED  An Innocent Tommy Sentenced  to Six Months  for Theft  From His Comrade  London, Oct. 1-1.���������A military melodrama,     in  which  the  South Wales  llorderers'    played  the cenlial   pait,  "lias just ended happily, with the \fn*-  dication of the honor of the hero  who was unlucky enough, though 111-  jhocoiit, bo be punished ior theft from  .Jus chum.    The victim of this  unfortunate    miscarriage  of   justice,   William -Henry  Stubbings,   until a     few  .-months   ago  a private  in   the  depot  oil'  the South Wales  Borderers,    was  at IJrecoh on Friday released     from  prison by order of the Home Secretary.    Before  Mr.   Justice Clratanell,  at Brcconsliire   Assi/.cs,  on June 4lh  last,   Stuhillings,   wh|o   was   u,rr>lefenid-  ed,   was  convicted  of  uttering      at  Brecon post ,o!Iicc a forg<^l rccrf|rt for  . .-t.12 and of ; stealing a    Post Olliee  Savings.

The evidence  was to     the -effect that Kemp,  who  ' possessed ��������� an account  irr the Post Office' .S-a-Tiii'i-s  Hank      iiifornicd  .Stiil>  bingsion Saturday, .Mav 27, 'that     a  note of  withdrawal  for  ������12 awaited  him at Brecon post-office.   Kemp declared     that    no i������i-e besides   Stub-  bings  knew of   the  fact.    Komp  left  his   coat,   which  con-tajneid .the  bankbook;  behind the door of the      sergeant's  mess,  a short  distance   from  an open window.   To this window, 'ft  was  alleged  that  Strrbbini-s  shortly  afterwards  came  to  call  for   Kemp,  whvj  was   his companion. Eventually-,  it was  discovered that  tlie coat had  been moved arrd the book taken.  The  usual    receipt or warrant had  bwr  signed at ..the post office and  tbe mon  cv paid over.    One of thc clerks   at  the     post, office,   Miss  Clari"e Campion.,/stated tl\at a soldier called fho>-  tweerr- a (|-riarter past severr and half-  past seven p.m.  The soldier had produced   the bankbook  and-S'itcned   the  warrant.   She  then    banded     the book  to   another  clerk. Miss Bell.   Miss Campion could  rrot identify Stubbings as  the      soldier.    Miss  Bell was positive  that he  was the man to whom she gave thc  money,  and   when closely  q'ues'tioneM  by accused, she adhered.to her statement.    It was dieted, however,  that  she     and.Miss Campion were shown  SI ii Wings   alone at   the  '" post-olbce,  and  only sribsc^neiitiy was he  placed  among a group of soldiers to. be. iHen-  t'-Iicid.    In his defence Stubbings   declared ."���������'." that he was at a local inn.  called  the Uull's Head, on the night  in question  between half-past six and  a quarter to eight.  He said  it  was  common talk t-brrt Kemp bad a tanking account.    The.  landlady  of     the  BuU's.     Head and   a workman   gave  corroborating evidence to  StubWng's  statement      that be was  at the inn  during   the   time incut)piicd,- stioutly  prot(*sting   his' inn.o'cciicc,   Stiilvbings,  after  bis coriiniittal,  petitioned    tlie  Home  Secretary.

As   to the future,   Stubbings    was  somewhat    anxious, i ''What   worried  me when  I was released   was       the  Tact that 1 could not go back-to the  Army,   aind   I tneiv  that   a con-vrlcted  person  could not do mucb in       the  world.

Bowie is a Masori~"and av.is  raised by a Kentucky lodge 84 years  ago.     This is proved by recoids.  Bowie's story is that he is a Cc-usm  of the famous Col. Bowie ami that he  was bom in j Kentucky. A prized pos  session is a handsome bowie knife or  immense size, which he &ays the Col-,  onei gave to. him.

He does  a man's work every day and is strong  and active. He said he was more  than ninety years old twelve years  ago when he arrived there, and is  known - throughout the woods as  "Ninety" ' Bowie., During the Spanish war he tried to enlist, but was  rejected. He votes the- straierbt democratic ticket every electi'cin, and attributes his longevity and health bo  the fact that he drinks straight 'Kentucky' whiskey.

Sol- G-.\ Simpson, owner of the  camp and'one of the best jenown. lum  ter men'in the state has investigated the old man's story and believes  it is-tcuc.

Coirup-vsciig     nearly eight hundred  Pages   the  Statistical  Year  Book  of  Canada for 11)04 is czammed with an  amazing/ amount     of     information  bearing on the vast resources     and -  progress 'of the Dominion.  The rate of progress may be gathered from  the fact that,  while     the  average     number,of  acres  taken  up  annual ly by settlers during the period  1891-2 was  6'38,052,  the acreage  was  about seven times  that average  last year.   Nearly thirten  ini 11 ion acres 'were taken up last tyer.r, and the  number  of farms  of  160   acres  eafch  allotted     in    the     year was 79,435.  There are now  655,239 such  farms,  and 'the number of acres occupied by  settlers is nearly 105. millions.  '  An English paper says: Canada,  being pre-&nineptly a wheat-girowiirg  country. .. jt is generally forgotten  that other very large, crops are produced. For instance, last rear ov?r  111 million pounds of tobacco were  produced, and also 55| million bushels of potatoes, and over a million  pounds of hops. Over.. 18-������ inillioh-  bushels of apples were produced,  more than, half a million bushels of  peaches, and the same quantity of  pears and plums. The output of  grapes exceeded 24"*- million lb.  Over 24 million lb of butter were  exported last year, mostly to Great  Britain, and 234 million lb. of cheese  nearly  all  of > the latter going  England.   The export of butler from  the Unitetl States  is less  than half  that, from*  Canada, ami  thc export of  cheese only**a tenth.  The coal areas of the Dominion are  estimated at 97,200 square rules, rrot  including areas known, -but as yct-uta*-  developed, in the far north. In Nova Sc,otia alone it is estimated that  there are 7,000 million tons. The  total value of the fisheries in 1903  was over'������4,000,COO.'  Over twenty-three and a half million passengers and forty million  tons of goods were carried c n the  Canadian steam railroads last year.
