Sloane did hot display any, great  amount of nervousness, but stood  perfectly still while the. information  was being, read. While one could  Bee that he was worried, he kept  himself well under control and judging from his appearance he would  never be  taken as a murderer.  Judge Heueke asked the boy if he  was guilty or not guilty, of the  murder of his father.  "Not guilty," answered the boy.  He was immediately taken hack to  his cell by the deputy and will probably remain behind the bars until  the days of his trial, the date of  which will be set later by Judge  Huneke.  bailor Kelly being given the decision.

Probate Judge Boomer,  Daniel Webster Leisure, a pioneer-  deputy sheriff of this district, who  . came here 20 years ago; and who  was one af the defense's star .witnesses, -advanced to the centre of. tho.  courtroom, and doffing his hat, asked courteously of the judge if lie  might make' a  raqluest.

"In this case," answered Judge  Boomer, "you had better go out in  the hallway and stay with your dog  and when we want you we will see  that you're called," and with childlike acquiescence, the big; ex-deputy  sheriff and pioneer bowed and ambled out of the room to join his best  friend.

Suddenly there'was* a, terrific explosion, and Miss' Muolmun fell dead,  struck in the breast by a piece of  shell. The whole house was wrecked, every pane of glass, every window frame and every door being  cast to the ground, and most of the  furniture being upset, and smashed.  A VAL'UABLK  ASM .PILE.  of Uie lvasaan bay ciimiery by lire  ubout two wool*.S ago, ibut Hid not  luaru the detail.-j or the lo-ss of the  l.acic ou hand. J. p. JJarron of tlie  L*'untur Day cannory canu- out on the  Humboldt ,wilh his wife. W. D.  Drown of tho t'eteisljiirg* cannery,  uus also a pa.s.si-ngc-r on the \esset  ito ,was accomjjanied by the members  of  bis  lamily.  Tlie Uuuiboldt brought oig-hty oab-  stutgers and a ticasuro shipment of  ^37.430.  O-DAY Mr.  11.  Robinson, local a gout for the E. & N.   Railway  Company,  received a  new   freight  rate  schedule  affecting   Ladysmith,  Avhich  practically, cuts the existing rate on groceries, lifcuor,  oils, hardware, elc, etc.,   in half.     Iu other words,  Ladysmith    merchants  will now  obtain  the/  Lipgur propoition of the froight at about  one-half the cost  of   former ."ates. ,  This is one of  the most Avolcomc  pieces  of news  received  in   Ladysmith   for many  months,   and     the '  Board of  Trade,   who have been -agitating the jtnuestron for months,   may  well feel  satisfied with    their  i c  efforts in this respect.  It will he remembered an account appeared in The Ledger some  few weeks ago of an interview with  various merchants of the city,   containing  the expression of their views regarding the advisiMlity of call '���������  in il a sitting of  the railway commissioners lip re to try  and oh/tain   better freight rates.     In  this inter-  icw the majority of tho merchants evpresscd their belief that if the matter was laid before the proper ollicials of the ('. P. R., they would take steps to remedy the complaint,'and in this they were  not   mistaken,   as  the  instructions .received by Mr. Robinson from   Mr. W.- B. Greer, will prove.  It will also be reinem-bcred that Ralph Smith, M.P., recently interviewed C.P.R. officials in Vancouver regarding ,thc fixing of a date upon which a meeting might take place between a delegation from  the local Board of Trade and the Company ollicials. At the time Mr. Greer, of the C.P.R.., had promised to interview Mr. Courtney, of the E. &.. N. line, and endeavor to (arrange a more satiisl|actor*j<  schedule. Mr. Greer's promise to Mr. Smith, has evidently been kept, and the neAV rate has Jjeeii the  result. , .'-''���������  The following goods arc affected by the   new rate, and it will be   readily seen that they include near-  , ly everything which is handled   in   quantity   hy' Ladysmith merchants.  Boots, shoes, dry goods, groceries, hardware (not otherwise spocified),. articles ,of iron, liujuor in  wood, 15 cents pet"'hundred pounds. Tho rate formerly in existence an these articles averaged from  22  cents  to 27  cents  per hundred   pounds.  Liquors in glass,  20 cents per   hundred  pounds.    The   former rate  was 5-1 cents, per hundred pounds.  Oils, illuminating and lubricating, candle.-;, gasoline, naphtha, .benzine, ('any quantity) 10 cents per  -hundred   pounds.    The   former   rate ou these articles was 2L cents  per hundred pounds.  Sugar,   I2i cents per hundred   pounds.     Formerly 17 cents per hundred.  These rates apply  only f'om   Vancouver  to Ladysmith,  and went   info effect    on Sept.  15.     In    the  typewritten schedule rcoorvod today,   it is  stated  that this rate   is   effective until Oct. 15th, but this is  taken to mean  until such  time   as  a printed schedule  can be p-apared,    when   it is  likely    that   very  little,   if any,  change  will  h    made  fiom that contained  on   -lu ty pewritten sheet.  <*-^^.^^������-^-*^^V^^*V--^V\-VW*A***V^*VV^.>^lWA^  LIVES THREE  DAYS WITH  BKOKEN NtCK  Chatham, Out., Sept.. 10.���������On Sept  IS), .1.003, there was a ^lur-glary from  the jewelry store of Walter Poilc,  of Tilbury, now in business here in  .vliieh "a notorious Texan, afterward  shot while trying to escape from  London prison, was concerned.

That the  boy was able to live in his condition for three days the physicians  consider extraordinary, and though  they, were prophesying his death hour*  after hour .from'the time he was  brought to a hospital here, the boy  hung to existence until Saturday  morning.  Allison was a hook tender. lie wjas  standing near a big cedar log Wednesday which a crew of men were  getting into position for a donkey  engine to pull to -a skid .road. The  log rolled over and snapped a small  tree off at the butt. The tree Hew  through the air and struck Allison  on the head, crushing him to the  earth. The .blow dislocated and  smashed the vertebrae of the neck.  Allison soon gained consciousness,  and kept his wits almost to- the moment of death.  Mr. J.

Huneke's  court  Saturday  morning  when     the  1 judge asked him whether he was  guilty.oi' not guilty of murdering his������  father J.  P.  Sloauc.  The murder of J. F. Sloanc last  month was one    of the most > cold-  . blooded deeds that have ever ' been  committed Jin Spokane and young  Sloane calmly admitted the day after the killing that he himself had  killed his father and that he.- had  done it .with an axe.  ; The boy was taken before Judge  Huneke Friday afternoon, but as the  defendant's attorney, F. C. Robertson was out of the city, the' infor-  ma tion was not read.  Upon the opening" of the court at  9:30, Sloane was led-from his cell  in the county jail to the court room  by Deputy Sheriff JI M. Hone and  took his'seat just-inside the railing  His attorney, F. C. Robertson, ,was  with hinv, but made 'no statement  this morning.  The room was crowded with attorneys, this being the regular law day  in the superior court anda/jgirealulca  ��������� of interest was taken in the young  murderer.  ��������� Prosecuting .Attorney Richard M.  Barnhart, asked tlie prisoner > if his  name was Sidney Hull Sloane and,  upon Sloane's' answering ..."It is,"  read the -information to him,,which  charges -him with'killing his father  with an axe and charges him with  murder in the first, degree.       - ,  Sloanc did not display any," great  amount   of   nervousness, but   stood  ��������� perfectly, still -while-the information  was- being read. While one could  Bee that he "was (worried, he kept  himself well under control and judging from his appearance he would  never be taken as a murderer.  Judge Henekc asked the boy if he  Was    guilty or    not guilty   of    the  . murder of his father.  "Not guilty," answered the boy.  He was immediately taken back to  his cell by the deputy and will probably remain behind the bars until  the days of his trial, the date of  ��������� which will be set later by Judge  Huneke.

TRAGEDY OF  The Natal Mercury (South Africa)  tells the (-.foiy of a Bom larmei  named Alootmaii, who found a 4.7  naval shell lying on the veldt uuex-  ploded and took it home to his sister. She wanted the shell for dc-  coiation purposes anil began lo dig  out the ���������lyddite, and to soften it  poured cold water upon it. .The lyddite and water begun to ufmrvuscu,  and the -girl went indoors and from  the end of the passage watched the  shell, 'which lay upon the doorstep.  Suddenly there was a terrific explosion, and Aliss' Moolrunn fell dead,  struck in l/lie breast by a piece of  .shell. The/whole bouse was wrecked-,' every pane of glass, every window frame and every door being  cast to t'he ground, -and most of tiro  furniture being upset, and smashed.  A VALUABLE  ASH PILE.  , This is one of the most welcome pieces of news received in La'dysmith for many months,, and the  Board of Trade, who have been agitating the jmuestioii for -months, may well feel satisfied with their  enorts in  this respect. ' ' ,' ���������  It, will be remembered an account appeared  in The Ledger some  few  weeks ago of  an interview with  various merchants of the city,   containing the expression of their views regarding the ad visibility or call'  ing a sitting of the railway commissioners here to try  and obrtain   better freight rates.     In  this inter-  iew the majority  of the merchants expressed  their  belief that  if  the matter was laid before the pro- '  per ollicials  of  the 0.  P.  R.,   they  would    take steps to  remedy  the complaint, and in this they were  ���������rot   mistaken,   as  the   instructions .-received by Mr. .Robinson from  Mr. W.'-B. Greer, avj'11 prove.  It will also be reincm-bcred that Ralph Smith, M.P., recently interviewed C.P.R. ollicials in Vancouver regarding .the fixing of a date upon which a meeting might take place between a delegation from  the local Board of Trade and the Company oflroials. At the time Mr.. Greer, of the C.P.R.,*had pro-  niised"to interview Mr. Courtney, of the E. &. N. line, and endeavor to tarran-cje a more satisfactory  schedule. Mr. Greer's promise to Mr. Smith, has evidently been kept, and the new rate has Jjeen the  result. ��������� , . .''.'���������  The following goods are affected by the new rate, and it will be readily seen that they include nearly everything which is handled   in   quantity  by' Iawlysmith  merchants.  Boots, shoes, dry goods, 'groceries, hardware (not otherwise specified), articles of iron, liquor in  wood, 15 cents per 'hundred pounds. The rate formerly in existence an these articles averaged from  22  cents   to   27  cents per hundred pounds. , - .       *  Liquors in glass,   20 cents per   hundred   pounds.    The  former rale  was  fS-1 cents, per hundred pounds.  ,   Oils,   illuminating and lubricating, candles, gasoline,  naphtha, benzine,   (any   quantity)   10   cents     per  -hundred   pounds.    The   former   rale on these -articles  was 21  cents  per hundred pounds.  -   Sugar,   I2i  cents  per hundred   pounds.     Formeily 17 cents per hundred.  These  rates  apply  only  f'om   Vancouver to Ladysniith,  and went   into effect    on Sept.  15.      In    the  typewritten schedule received today,   it  is  stated that" this rate   is  effective until Oct.  15th, but this is  taken to mean  until such  time   as a printed schedule can be p-apared,   when   it is likely   that   very  little,   if any,   change  will   h    made from that contained on   -hj typewritten sheet.  vvs^^^v^A^������v^^^^^^^^^N^v^^  LIVES THREE  DAYS WITH  BK0KEN NtCK  Chatham, Ont.,.
