 Enderby, B. C, May 13, 1909  AND      WALKER'S      WEEKLY  Vol. 2; No. 11; Whole NoV. 63  ���������������������������xx  WHAT IS TO BE SEEN IN THE WAKE OF THE FIRE BETWEEN ENDERBY AND MARA  =xx:  Did you ever ride thirty miles  over a district browned, charred and  blackened by the cruel hand of fire?  Did you ever see miles - of the  brightest green birch and' poplar  thicket, forests of pine, and spruce,  hemlock and- cedar transformed into  gaunt, black poles, with not a branch  left upon them to mark the species?  Did you ever sec miles of white-  red ashes winding snake-like along  the''sides of the highway and across  the fields, marking the trail of the  old rail fence?  Did you ever see cedar swamp  land, so thick with the growth of  bush and shrub, brakes and climbing  vines as to be impenetrable by men,  swept clean of vegetation and the  trees uprooted, their smoking trunks  lying naked of branch across the  shallow marsh pools; the only vestige of green to be seen anywhere in  the path of the fire being the hooded  spathe of the skunk cabbage, and  even these scorched, nrimplcd and  blackened to the surface of the bog  but of which they grow?  Did you ever see the'"whole mountainside, heretofore a mass of variegated green; swept clean from base  to summit, with here and there only  a charred .tree-trunk standing, and  these burned to the very.top?.' :  -  If you never, have ��������������������������� and wish to,  take a saddle-horse and travel to  Mara on.one side of the river and  back the other.  You will see things that will make  you heart-sick, and then again, you  will see things that will ,m'ake you  glad.  You will', see smouldering . logs  buried " in pits strewn' with ' bed  springs, battered stoves and cooking  pans, all that is left of' many a  farmer's home.'  You will see where the barn stood,  and beside it tho twisted tires of  farm wagons, sleighs, cutters, and a  mass of iron scrap, out of which  farm implements were made.  You will see where the chicken  house stood, the pig sty, the horse  corral and hay shed. -.  You will sec an old sow, having  lost her young, making, or endeavoring to make, a baby out of the calf.  You Avill sec the horses and cattle,  _Jn_most instances. say_ed,_but_ypu__wHi_  not see a chicken on tho place. The  fire came and caught them alive on  the roost:  You will see where heros fought,  on the way to Mara.  It was an awful fire that swept  the district last week. The early  reports, while bad enough, told but  half the story. The individual losses,  as near as they can be computed are  given below. The loss to the country at large is great, but this is offset, in a' measure, at least, for the  fire opened up the country as it never  could have been opened up in any  other way, at least for years. In  some ways the fire has been beneficial. It has placed thousands of  acres in a position to be cleared for  $25 an acre that would otherwise require the expenditure of $100 an  acre. It has shown where thousands  of acres of the best land lies.  The country between Enderby and  Mara is the finest to look at out of  doors. The hills, the river banks,  the low lands and plateaus, are a  mass of brilliant green at this season of the year. Spring-time in this  section of the Okanagan, is as near  the common conception of ' the  Garden of Eden as can be . found  anywhere. The birches appear \ in  their prettiest tints of green, the  alders are scarlet with budding life,  the wild thorn and wild cherry blossoming white, and the syringas putting forth their beauty of leaf and  bud, all intermixed with the deeper  greens of' the firs and cedars and  pines. The meadows are succulent  green, the roadways and byways and  hillsides flower-bedecked with spring  beauties.  In the midst of this, the pathway  of the fire looks all the more severe.  It has cleaned up every vestige of  herbage m its path, and left behind  blackened poles and parched lands.  At the bluff point on the road to  Mara, even the moss on the barren  rocks 'was .burned and the. rocks  themselves look-- as If they were  blasted by, tlie -heat. .:-V/Lt: this, point,  all the force of the *wind:and:.fury"of  the, flames' must have beat against  the bluff for an hour or more.  At the home of a. H. Duncan the  destruction was complete. He was  surrounded'by fire/ against which no  human being, could stand. The Indians he had helping him, and Heze-  kiah Elliot, did all that could be  done to save the buildings, but left  until it was too late the releasing of  the horse in the stable. They had to  run for safety, leaving the animal,  the chickens, etc., to be roasted  alive.  But the fire had not reached its  greatest fury yet. Not until the McManus home- is reached are there  signs of any terrific heat. Here the  timber was larger and more dense,  and the force of the gale must have  been awful. Mr. McManus was a1.  work at the Hazelmere Farm when  he realized the danger that his home  was in. He immediately hitched his  team to his wagon and started by the  back road at a break-neck speed for  home. - By the..time-he. reached''the  heavy bush-to the north of his clearing it was ablaze on' both' sides of  the road. He'managedto plunge his  team through" the-worst-lb t dt before-  th_y" could" slacken their speed,-and'-  they sped on' .to the clearing. ��������������������������� - He  found Mrs. McManus 'fighting the  flames alone.. All she had was a-wei  blanket.    The   springy from   which  they take their water is 100 yards.or  ' more from the house," and all about  it the fire had caught and was burning^ About every- fruit tree on the  hillside,. the straw manure was  burning. His barn and implement  shed were ablaze,; and alKthe. other  outbuildings soon caught.' He stationed himself behind a fir tree along  side the house, and from this point  fought the sparks and.flames as they  reached from the other buildings to  lick up his home. It is one of those  miracles born of heroism and hard  work that his house was saved.'    .  From this point the fire swept'the  valley and hillside in' the direction  of C. S. Handcock's, W. Mbnck's,  Geo. McEwin's, J; Lambert's, and  Gerald Nave's. The place of C.. S.  Handcock was saved by Ed. Mack,  who happened to be driving along  the. road and saw Mrs. Handcock  fighting off the sparks, which were  burning within ten feet of the hay  shed. He .tied his team and set to  work. Mr.' Handcock was away  fighting the fire in the direction ��������������������������� of  the Monk' and McEwin residences.  The ha.i'dsome new home of Gerald  Neve escaped ''by the flames being  driven over" it to the bush beyond.  From the- slashing on the McEwin  place the fire jumped half a mile to  tlie bush about the Lambert home.  Then -tO"hisJ*barn.\'a_.d^outbuildings'."  The, fire on the'.porch of- the dwelling-  was .fought put, but the outbuildings  with contents disappeared.  . In the-Lambert home, Mrs:. Neve  had gathered a number of the school  children of the -vicinity for safety.  When the building caught, fire,they  hurried to the big meadow.' Mrs.  Neve rushed back to the home for  some valuable papers, and on emerging from the house found that, she  had been cut off from the children .by  the ��������������������������� fire. Wetting, a bath towel, she  threw it about her head and rushed  through;1" About this time Mr. Lambert had returned from fighting the  fire, elsewhere. The children * were  piled into'^a wagon, and all were  rushed, to the home of Robt. Waddell, This was a rendezvous of safety  for many. Mr. Neve staid behind to  save the residence. ��������������������������� -  .It was now a case of every man  for himself. The concerted fighting  was given up. Men rushed to save  what little they could from their own  homes. The worst of the blaze, about  Mr. Monk's buildings had by this  time been checked, and his only loss  is a stretchJof fence and-a bridge'or  two. Mr. McEwin" lost cabin and  contents, fences, rails, cord-wood,  etc.  At the Hazelmere Farm, Mr. Waddell and his workmen were fighting  the flames which followed the.fences'  or swooped  down  upon Jan isolated  brush-pile   or  out buildiiig.' -At  the  same time Mrs.'.

" " >  ���������������������������>**r>*t~  __������������������rr*w  FROM ONE MAN'S POINT OF VIE Wi  >"*cxz  FOR a period covering many months,  official Enderby has oeen endeavoring  in a half-hearted way to. cause Mill  street to be opened for traffic. The railway crossed tne street, rail-high above the  street level, in direct violation of the railway law and all civic law governing chartered streets. The city council appealed  to the railway company, then demanded,  but somebody winked on the side and the  railway company smiled blandly as railway  companies do, and did nothing.. The city  council laid down.  A few weeks ago the case was submitted  to the railway commission, not by the city  whose business it is to keep its streets open  to traffic/ but by a ratepayer whose property was injured by the street being unlawfully closed. It was a very simple case.  The railway claimed that Mill street is not  a street. The commissioner said, "the  onus is upon you to prove that it is not a  street. I will give you two weeks." Of  course the railway eompany could not  prove black was white, and the crossing  was put in as required by law. And the  city has a street opened and the making of  a very popular thoroughfare.  In referring to this case, I do so simply  to show how quickly things can be. righted  when the right course is pursued. British  law and British character are the same.  There is a clean-cut frankness, ���������������������������blunthess,  if-you^willf���������������������������which=-appeals-to=the-fearless  heart, and it does not ask to hear your  prayers or see your piccadilly before granting you your rights. The railway commissioner did not ask to seethe petitioner's  church papers, or the color of his hair.  He did not stop to enquire if there wasn't  some other way. There was the right  way, and the right way-was good enough.  COLONEL LOWERY proposes "in order  to make Greenwood a lively town, to  shortly commence the publication of  the names of all the men in the Boundary  who have been in the habit of hugging  their cooks, chambermaids, typewriters,  and other ladies they have no right to."  Colonel Lowery does not state whether he  or Jim will head the list.  ���������������������������������������������������������������������������������__      _���������������������������____���������������������������_____      _������������������_i  IF you want a piece of advice that is  worth a lot but does not cost anything,  here it'is. It is from the "Old Man" of  the Cranbrbok Herald: "You cannot make  a successful board of trade by attending a  few meetings during the year. Work between meetings. Talk up the country and  your town. Tell the truth. That is enough,  but for goodness sake tell it. Get your  friends to become members. Get them to  talk. Get them to write to their friends in  the east, in the old country and in the  states. In other words, do what you can  for the District."  line of poultry houses.

J. .Lucky") Baldwin, a fa-  r mour t_irfmau and plunger, recalls to  old Caiifornians .1 poker game in which  Baldwin sat. some vears ago and during the comsc of which lie won a pot  containing $-165,000, the largest, it i.s  -aid. in the history of the game in the  Golden Stale. Baldwin was a thorough  ���������������������������port, cool, calm and dispassionate, and  as-.^a big poker player lie probably never had his equal in this or any other  country.  The old Palace Hotel, in .an Francisco, owned for many years by the late  Senator Sharon, of Sarah Althc-a Hill  fame, was the scene of the most remarkable poker games ever played in  that city, and that is saying a great  deal. The old California pioneers were,  as a rule, inveterate gamblers, and  Rinono- the devotees of the game who  were wont to gather iu the private card  room of tlv. Palace at tlie invitation of  Senator- Sharon were men high in the  professions���������������������������eminent lawyers, prominent politicians and wealthy men who  forgot the cares of business in the  excitement of the game.  PLAYED I'OR HIGH STAKES.  into the pot, making the total $5,SO0.  "I'll see it," said Mac,, recklessly,  hoping to,, fill a. flush. Tie ��������������������������� found his  checks were ir.su ffioie.l. and he asked  permission to sec Sharon's raise on his  t. i >.   .... w'ji _!i     u? granted.  '.colt he-dialed, for a moment, then  declared- himself out of the pot. Smith  tossed la-; ham! into the di;fk. rd, and  Prown . .iid wittily that "a hog knew  whfu he had enough," and followed  Smith".- example. This left Baldwin  with Sharon. .Mac and Scott behind him  to meet any raise that might he made.  '���������������������������People may disagree'us to mo being  a hog,'' remarked _>: tldwin, "but ia a  smart poker game like tii is J. seldom  know when 1 get enough.

O.  L'. for the stun into the pot. "Guess  that'll make you go some, Lucky."  It was' .Mac's turn to wonder what  sort of hands he had dealt. He figu. _d  that ids flush was -worth at least a call,  if not ;i raise, and, morally sure that  (h. iixnu'v was his, he merely called the  bet. lie v/a_ given a severe jolt when  I .tldwin. in his cool manner, not    oniv  It was not an infrequent spectacle lo  see Senator Sharon and "Lucky'-' Bald-  wiu stand at tlie 1'alace Hotel bar and  shake direc by the hour for the drinks,  while a    side    bet  of    anywhere  from  $1,000   lo      .1.0,000.       Senator   Sharon  wasn't what* is  known    in  poker    language as a   "hard  loser,"  although  he  was   known   to   be      worth      at    least  ���������������������������520,000,000.   Baldwin,   ,  on      the  other  hand, smiled blandly when he lost small  fori.nea,    and hi.s smile was    no more  pronounced when he  raked in his  winnings,    which  at  times    reached  enormous figures.  There was a gathering of the elect at  the Pa-lace Hotel one   night.    Sis   men  had  gathered  at  Senator   Sharon's   request to    indulge  in  a  quiet game of  draw.   Aside   from   Sharon   and    Baldwin,   there  were   wealthy  Nevada  men  whom wc. will call Smith aud Brown, a  Texas   cattle   man   of      great   wealth,  known  as Scott,    aud one. of the- most  prominent    members of  the Sau  Francisco Bar, now deceased, whose love for  poker was unbounded,    but whoso propensity to bluff      against   Baldwin on  short hands  kept  him  constantly  in   a  state of financial    depression, This lawyer, for the purpose of explaining the  game definitely, will be known as "Mac.  Shn-ron sat  at: the  head of the table,  with Baldwin  to his right and Afac to  his  left.   Nest lo  "Mac  sat Scott,  then  Smith ,.ud  Brown.

The ante wa.s a white  chip,  and  every  pot  wa.s a jackpot in  accordance   with     a     rule     prcviou.,1 v..  adopted  by the' players.  The  play was desultory  for an  hour  or  more,  few  bets in  excess of  ..1,000  _    made.

Led the First Successful Party in California   Gulch.  ...."When the history of Lcadville is  written," said Max Boehmor, of l>env������������������r  in talking of the early mining development of thf, district to-day, "there  should be no mistake as to who actually  matlo tho first discovery of gold in California Gulch. The man wa.s Abe Lee,  who died iu Park county a few years  ago. lie was one of tho best known characters in this section. Hc was the first  recorder  of Lake  county.  '"Tlie first prospecting party that entered the gulch was under the leadership of Abe and they had not been very  successful. They worked all the way up  the gulch from below Granite without  finding any values, and all of them were  nearly blinded by the. snow. They were  about ready to quit when Lee suggested  that they try another pan. He dug down  until he struck a layer of cement, and  below this the gravel was softer. Lee,  although suffering terribly from snow  blindness, managed to pan the gravel,  and .the.result was such that they at  once recovered confidence; He worked  the gulch for a long time and made  plenty of money.  "The" question "has also been asked,"  continued Mr. TJoehmer, " where did the  millions of dollars taken out of the California gulch placers in early days go?  "If I remember rightly, no one made  a very large pile, but there were scores  of men who left the gulch with $25,000'  or $30,000 and went back east to eatab- "  lish themselves in business or to buy  farms. As a rule they were sober, iudus-  trious men, and the fortunes thoy made  in the gulch gave them a competence  which enabled them to prosper in their  undertakings in other parts of the country."���������������������������From the Denver Rcpjublica ..

As a Hibernian admirer  of Iters once remarked, "Wu have to1  go  back  to vcrv ancient times for a  parallel  to  Tsu  Hsi.  and  oven  then  wo  do   not  find   one."   A   sketch  of  tho main episodes of her living and  striving,   her  reverses   and   triumphs,  painted   in   colors   sufficiently     dc-op  yet  faithful  to  the   tones  of history,  would   stir   tho  souls   of   impressible  renders   with   strong     emotions.   For  despite many serious defects of mind  and  soul,   Tsu  Hai-was   not only ��������������������������� a  commanding 'personality   in   her   age  and country, but she was also endowed with some of the sterling qualities  of  absolute greatness,     hike, the green  leaf of tlie lotus tha'c sprouts up  from  the slime, she raised herself aloft by innate ' worth,   tact   and   will-power   from  nothingness to a dizzy height, where, she  maintained ' herself   for    forty years in  spite of the rigorous prohibition of her  country's laws and the stern disapproval  of her" country's enemies,      Alone  she  repaid.   Thereupon  sign   to   her   eldest  fought the battle of individuality  against a nation of -100 millions of living men and myriads of the dead, whose  spirits are still quick and influential  there. And by dint of energy, resourcefulness and perseverance she scored a  signal victory over them all.  Seventy-four  years   ago   one   of   the  busiest,   wealthiest  and   most  populous  haunts of men was Hankow, ou thn llun-  kiang.   Even at present it is one,of 'the  most prosperous marls in China, but in  those-   halcyon    days    its    inhabitants,  counting the population of the two adjacent  towns,  numbered    several    millions, with not a whiie-skin among I hem.  Tliat,   however,   was   before   the   rebel  Taepings   destroyed   il,   before   foreign  consuls were admitted, when only sailing" ships and houseboats  plied on the  ���������������������������river.    One  sultry  evening  in  August,  .lS.i-i, a, quaint Chinese houseboat, bearing a widow with her two daughters, and  a coffin, was moored to the left bank of  the Hankaing    The lady's husband had  1 .en serving the Cro .n in the province  jo ������������������._!3_u v .uav aq su qi. | ��������������������������� _.������������������ni{aoz g jo  'Peking, his body had 'to be buried in ill _  latter place.   They had halted there on������������������  their way to Peking.   Their stores were  exhausted, they lacked the wherewithal  to replenish them, and, bereft of funds,  had but slender hopes of pushing on io  the capital.       And   the   widow's   only  chance of saving her little family from  starvation  seemingly   depended   ou  her  Teaching Peking.   For there she intended  to petition-the authorities to a.dmi'c her  .little daughter to the'palace as a candidate   for   the  imperial   haroni.     Tho  girl's  qualifications  were  her  Mandehu  extraction, her rank as daughter  of a  third class official���������������������������of hini whose body  was  now being conveyed  to its  native  noil���������������������������her    comeliness,    aptitudes,    and  grace.. Presentation at court under such  conditions is more than a mere privilege  ���������������������������it may be the s'tnrting-point of a brilliant career.   From'among the numerous  girls upou whom this honor is conferred,  the Empress Mother selects for the fu-  =1 i:r _= Ei.peror-his-f i rs Ha v.- f uKwit _jHwo=  other  spouses,  nine concubines,  and   a  goodly number of handmaids.      Hence  hundreds  of families   that  po.-_se.ss   the  requisite qualifications  strive after the  honor for their daughters.  Next day about noon another boat  .lay to alongside that of the widow. On  board was a functionary from the province of Hupeli, who had just been appointed to the post of Tao Tai or Gov-  f,rnor,_and_was .on his way to the.capital to do homage for this mark of favor.  A new Governor is a monarch in miniature, and many officials of his province  make an earl}' bid for his favor. First  ia (.he field here was a city judge, "YVTi  T������������������ing by name, who despatched his servants with refreshments and a present  of about ...'10 in money. The messengers, boarding the wrong boat, presented  th.? widow witlt the edibles, the coin,  nnd tho good wishes of their master.  Pleasantly surprised, the lady mentally  set down the offerings a. tokens of the  gratitude of some friend of her deceased  husband. She accordingly charged AV'u  Tang's messenger to express her indebtedness to their master, and to ...iy  that she would be much pleased it" he  could do heV the favor to come and receive the expressions of her gratitude.  The servants returning delivered the  widow's message to Wit Tang. Wu's  anger knew no bounds. He cudgelled  them and threatened the chief on. with  death. But his wrath subsiding, he consulted a certain councillor of the tribunal, who advised him to look upon the  money as lost, and to call.on the widow.  Boarding the houseboat next morning,  the judge performed the traditional ceremonies, before the coffin. Meanwhile  the lady came out of her apartment,  fell on her face before him, and offered  her heartfelt thanks for the kindness  which had prompted him���������������������������the friend of  her deceased husband���������������������������to help her in  her hour of need. Tho present, he had  sent would enable her���������������������������she said���������������������������to  reach Peking, where she hoped to arrange her affairs. She could not tlinnk  him adequate1.*,' in words but "as a token  of my gratitude and devotion, T hereby  give you mv oldest child as your  . adopted daughter."

Wu returned ��������������������������� the greetings, recognized  the chiid as his daughter by adoption,  and soon after took his leave. The  same day the houseboat sailed down  the Yaiiglse, bearing the girl, whose  name was Yehonala, (At her birth, a  Chinese girl receives a temporary  name, which is generally suggested by  an object just seen by one of the parents���������������������������as, for .'.stance, a flower." Si.  or seven years later another name ���������������������������  containing a flattering allusion���������������������������is substituted for this, but nobody may'utter  it excepting her grandparents, parents,  and professors. Iler brothers are not  excepted), . ou to" the high seas of  life, where, under the name of Tsu Hsi,  she was to grannie successfully with  circumstance.  Twenty years later the curtain,   was  raised on.tlw second scene of this little  drama.    Meanwhile   a   deep   dent   had  been left on the history of the Celestial  Empire, deeper tb.?-ii any the preceding  hundred years,had made. Hankow-had  been, destroyed   in,  the   Taeping   rebellion, which cost tlie natiou twenty million   lives. fChina,  theretofore   an    embalmed  corpse,    enfolded  iu  silk  cerements,   covered   with   ancient   inscriptions,  was being slowly  shaken  out of  the   lethargy   of   ages.   Monarchs    had  come   and   vanished,   the   dynasty   had  been   endangered,   the   throne   shaken,  the empire itself had well-nigh      gone  to pieces.  But  Wu Tang had  survived  all   changes, plodding   tamely on   with  the flawless serenity of spirit which so  many  of his countrymen  seem to hold  ever at command. Dogged perseverance  and length of service at last won recognition.   Wu   Tang   was   promoted   and  transferred _to the province of  Kan  si.  Joyful he set out on a visit to his new  chief.  But the Marquess Tseng���������������������������a polished  man  of the world  and moderate  reformer���������������������������was" disgusted with the dense-  uess of his new subordinate. Tseng, who  was   striving   just' then.     to      gather  around him a band of enlightened workers, had  uo use  for W . Tang as sub-  prefect, and deemed it his duty to get  the  appointment .quashed.  The Viceroy  accordingly  dismissed  his  visitor  curtly,  and  despatched- a  damaging report  about him  to Pekiug. '*  In the fullness of time there came  a strange reply. Tseng was informed  that the Empress-Eegcut had been  pleased to raise "Wu Tang from the post  of sub-prefect to that of Prefect. At  this the Viceroy marvelled. The Empress, he concluded, could i_ol have received his report. He therefore wrote  again. Quicker than before came the  answer. It was another edict of promotion. It now pleased her Majesty to appoint "Wu Tang to the post of Tao Tai,  or Governor. The mystified Viceroy sent  for Wu Tang. 'Who are your influential friends at court?" he asked. "I possess no friends, no influence, no acquaintances there," was the answer, and its  accents carried conviction. "Then it is  a mistake after all," the Viceroy argued, as he turned the matter over iu  h.sT.Fdr^'an^.'^it^iTi.t^  So he despatched another letter to the  Empress, this time asking that her  Majesty would vouchsafe to honor Wu  Tang with an audience.    ���������������������������  Shortly afterwards the new Tao Tai  was summoned to Peking: On the morning fixed for the audience he entered  the palace in trepidation, his eyes  downcast. Iu front of the imperial  throne, congruously with custom, he  fell upon his knees.-The Empress commanded her awestruck subject to rise  up and draw near. Startled at the voice,  which caused a dim memory to flit before his eyes, the new Tao Tai did as  he wa3 told, his gaze riveted to the  floor. "Look into my eyes," was the  next behest A hasty glance brought  baek Wu Tang's thoughts to years gone  by, and ha recognized in the all-powerful monarch the girl who had once prostrated herself before him as his adopted daughter on the site of old Hankow.  The helpless little Yehonala had become the mighty Tsu Hsi. And he trembled with tumultuous emotions. But  the Empress, in caressing accents, told  him limy glad she was to meet again  the benefactor whose friendly hand was  once stretched out to help her from'  among the weird shadows of the grey  world, at sight of which her child's  heart was swelling. She then dismissed  him to his post, .promising to turn a  deaf car .to all calumnious denunciations  of .him.:' .'���������������������������������������������������������������������������������;��������������������������� . .  But. to return lo her early -career.  Soon after her father was laid to rest  in his native soil, Yehonala was presented at court. The maiden's good.  looks, blithe temperament, grace <\  gait and bearing, and those winsome  ways that elude analysis and are connoted by the word charm, induced the  palace authorities to receive her. Accordingly she entered the "sacred precincts," which no girl candidate, once  admitted, can ever quit alive. Like the  Roman vestals, they arc cut'off from  the world whose pleasures they have  renounced. During several months of  probation .under the eye of the Empress  Mother, their aptitudes are noted, their  defect.-corrected.

For concubines enjoy  few privileges. They are cloistered in a  pavilion, where they fill in -their day  with sewing, embroidery, breeding silkworms, sauntering about the spacious  grounds, or boating on the garden lakes.  They rarely receive their parents, and  never anyone' else. If,' however, one  among them becomes the mother of male  offspring-, she has established her right  to a high-sounding- title during the remainder of her life, a tablet over her  grave, and household worship after  her death. And that seemed the dizziest  height attainable by Hsicn feng's fifth  concubine, who was then a winsome girl  of sixteen. -'  .Five more years rolled over the Empire of China and the harem of Hsiei:  feng. and the fifth concubine had become a favorite. The Son of Heaven,  yielding himself more and more to the  soothing spell of the. daughter of earth,  made her his boon companion, his solace  in trouble, his counsellor at all times.  Within the harem she began to discharge  certain of the functions which belonged  of right to the chief spouse, yet without  arousing the envy of her rival���������������������������a meek,  loving, devoted wife, who felt remorseful regret that she had not yet borne  her lord and. master a male heir. At  last the fifth concubine presented the  Emperor with .a boy, and rose at a  bound to the highest position in the Empire. Festivities were organized at court,  wild rejoicings followed in the capital,  and an amnesty was granted" to criminals. . The Dowager Empress assigned a  separate palace to the mother of her  grandson,, who was thereupon promoted  to the rank of a "western consort"���������������������������the  first spouse being termed the eastern.  Ou the happy mother the Court also bestowed the name of Tsu Ifsi, or '-'clement  benefactress."  At'this period of her career. Tsu Hsi,  native chroniclers tell us. was a girl  with the budding charms of an ideal woman. Prepossessing iu person, she was  so kindly i������������������ manner and suave of disposition that she- won every heart, persuaded every hearer, disarmed envy and^  hatred. .All who came .in contact with  her describe her as a fascinating talker.  Her language abounded in witty sallies,  quaint notions clothed in racy words,  embellished with poetic images, bright  with bursts of musical laughter. People '  loved to listen lo her, were proud of her  notice, and captivated by her smile.  =-Whilc-shc-spoke=nn-iiiteris .-fire=lighte&  her eyes, kindled her mobile tongue, and  as one of her countrymen puts it, "made  her lips drop honey." People of character wore drawn towards her despite  their will, and clever statesmen were  swayed by her despite their intelligence.  A magnetic force seemed lo go out from  her. hypnotising her environment, and  making instruments of all who came  wihtin the radius of its operation. It  was thus that while supplan'iing (he  chief spouse in the affections of the i .n-  peror, she contrived  to win her friend  ship and to keep it. And it is worth  noting, as a proof that she eschewed foul  means when fair methods were obviously  adequate, 'that that same lady, with  whom she lived and worked in amity for.  many years, died a natural death in'  1S81. The eunuchs, who are an all-present, all-powerful, and permanent element at court, were the next to yield to  Tsu Ilsi's fascination. Their obedience  was prompt, thorough, cheerful, theii  co-operation precious, and their attachment partook of the nature of religious  worship. And in this boundless devotion of the powerful body which carried  out all the palace revolutions, lies a  clue to much of what seemed mysterious about her marvellous success. The  Empress remained their staunch friend  until her death. Last year, when reforming or abolishing other antiquated  institutions, she refused to meddle with  the eunuchs.  Another five years passed into history and well-nigh dragged the Mandehu  dynasty with-them. The Taeping rebellion, which stirred the nation to  its foundations, made upon the mind of  Tsu Hsi a deep and lasting impress.  Its victims arc computed at twenty millions. The foreign invasion of China  administered another painful shock. For  the first time m history, it was borne  in upon the rulers of the Empire that  their naive faith iu their superiority to  the rest of  ..6LECTED SCALD .CAUSED  MONTHS OF A6fl._Y.

The  Anglo-French    campaign    against  Ohina culminated in the capture of Peking,   the   humiliation of  the   imperial  family,  and   tho  insertion  of  the  thin  edge of the wedge of western civilization  in the massive  realm  of  the far east.  But iu the midst of the wild confusion  at court there was one person who remained  cool.  -When  the Emperor  was  making ready  lo  flee  his capital, and  his panic-stricken courtiers were urging  him to lose no time, Tsu IIsi strove to  dissuade him.   She would have had him  hold his ground and make a fight for  the rights of his house and his empire.  But   her   advice  was   disregarded,   and  Hsien feng repaired   lo  Jeliol -in Mongolia.   Tsu Hsi, ever a model spouse, followed  her  lord and  consort,  zealously  guarding   her   priceless    treasure,- the  five-year-old  son,   through   whpm   she  had won title, dignity and power, and  bereft of whom she would again become  the merest cipher���������������������������secluded for the remainder of he- life in a palatial prison.  .Such  was   the  politcal  debut of  the  charming woman who. as a pretty maiden, had a few years before so narrowly  eluded the grip of misery on the banks  of  the llankiiing  "River.     Within .that  brief span she had raised  herself to a  loftier  eminence  than  that"once  occupied by Semiramis or Cleopatra, Catherine II, or Maria Theresa.   She now held  the destinies of a fourth of the human  race in the  hollow  of her hand.    And-  shc  bore  good   fortune   splendidly.    In  the new as in the old role, she was simple,   ready,  resourceful.. .That  she   retained her modesty is proof that it was,,  deep-rooted, for  her advisers  did their"  utmost  lo cure her of it.    Eitnes> for  great opportunities  and a  capacity  to  create lesser ones were among her main  characteristics..   Success never seems to  have   intoxicated,  nor  failure   to  have  demoralised her.   Jn politics, which may  be described as the. art of ihe possible,  Tsu Hsi, like^thc ���������������������������-world's, great statesmen, was an opportunist. She made the  most of changing circumstance, and V_hcn  unable      to      alter      conditions      lo  suit      her      plans,       she       modified  her     plans    and    adjusted    them    to  tho   conditions. t   Ilouco   .she has   heen  charged by the. Conservatives-with excessive 'readiness   to   humor   the   while  men, and  by  reformers  with harboring  rancorous hatred of everything that was  neither,  CHINESE NOll MANDCHU.  In truth, she merely utilized the foreign  -elemcnfc���������������������������foi-the=good-=of=iher-^enipireH������������������cl-  dynasty, her personal weal. It was ever  her way lo use mankind as a bridge over  which to pass to her goal, and having  reached it she generally tried to draw  Iter people after her.  During her first regency Tsu Hsi, then  iu the flower of her age, indulged, it is  said, iu the passions of a Messaline and  the cruelly of a Bluebeard, putting several of her ohscure favorites to death. A  priori the slory may 1_ true. It is safe  to assume,"however, that many acts of  the regent, which l.uropeans would condemn and Chinese condone, have been  magnified by enemies into heinous  crimes. As a western critic once cautiously put it, "half the calumnies spread  about the lady are in nil probability  untrue." Doubtless Tsu Hsi perpetrated  crimes enough to kindle raptures of  moral indignation in the West. But it  would be well to remember that she  had not only no scruples of any sort,  but no indwelling source of r.ny. A eon-  science formed no part of her equipment.  She dwelt beyond the domain of right  and wrong.  Thus Tsu Esi. who was the first Empress, was also tho last autocrat of  China, an autocrat by nature as well as  by law. In a country where centuries  of 'peaceful toil and military quiescence  had contribtikd to the decay of energetic passions, she was an epitome of  much that was great in healthy human  kingship. And her death was worthy  of her life. Such was Tsu Ilsi's zeal  for the public service that during her  last agony she insisted on being present  at a state council, and, lying dressed on  her couch, she took such part in its  deliberations as the rapid advance of  her malady permitted. For the freshness of her soul was unimpaired in a  body that years had enfeebled and disease undermined. "1 ran bear no more,"  were the last articulate ���������������������������sounds that  passed her lips.

WRIGHT, Proprietor  Enderby  News Leaks Out of Warfare In Depths  of British Columbia.  In the remote sections of the interior of British Columbia life is still  held pretty cheap, and although, the  white man is generally safe from molestation the Indians themselves are  wont to settle their little troubles in  time-honored fashion, without calling  upon the courts or representatives of  tho Government to assist them.  The latest of these little affrays is  mentioned in a report just received by  the Attorney-General's Department  from tlie headquarters of the Northwest Mounted Police, which speaks  of two tribes having gone on the war-  pnth, with the result that some ten  men were killed and others injured.  The report goes on to say that further  trouble  is  expected.  The scene of the fight is situated in  the northeast corner of British Columbia, and it is an object lesson of the,  immensity of tlio distances in -this  province and how little is known of  the vast interior spaces,,' that this  foray occurred in the spring of last  year and yet the news has only just  leaked out. The belligerent Indians  were the Dog Eibs and the Sikannis,  who are understood to be old-time  enemies, and the. authorities are not  always able to prevent spasmodic outbreaks from time to time.  A more serious report coming from  the same source is. that a "Roman  Catholic missionary who was traveling  on .the Laird river, alone in a canoe  is thought to have been killed also.  The Indian who brought the news  stated that while Ins effectsjiad been  found, he himself was nowhere.-to be  seen. 0  These events arc supposed to have  taken place near the confluence of  the Nelson and the Laird rivers and  such meagre details as arc known hero  are to be found in the report referred-  to, the essentia] portions of which arc.  reproduced below:  "On June 4 last B. G. Clarke of the  Hudson Bay Co. at Vermillion reported-to me having met an Indian (Dog  Rib) at Hay river post, 100 mile?  north of Vermillion, on the Hay river,  who had come on a hunting trip from  the .Laird river leaving there in the  summer of 1907. and this Indian told  him that the-Si"-anni and Dog "Rib  Indians had been fighting during the  early spring of 1907. Ten men were  killed and several wounded and ho  .believed that move tro.ble would follow. 'The fight occurred near "where  the Laird and, Nelson"rivers join and  on' the Nelson-river.   ,- "  "This; Indian flso reported that p.  brother 'of the' Roman Catholic mission was. traveling on the'Laird river  in a canoe, alone.-.- His canoe, clothing, and food, were found, but''that-  he was missing and .could, not bo,  found. Some of the Indians believed  that he had been killed also.  "The Indian who- niade his statement to Mr. Clarke left at once to  hunt back toward the Laird river,and  will reach there sometime, the next  spring."  A CANADIAN SINGE!.  Mme.

Indians  Fought  Fire.  Colin Fraser, one of the best-known  fur-traders of the north, has arrived  in Edmonton with his annual harvest  of'peltries.  Mr. Fraser stated that he was present at Fort Chipewyan, which is 600  miles north of this city, at tho time  of tlie fire at the Roman Catholic Mission in June. The fire broke out in  the night, and when the alarm was  given tho storehouse ' was in flames.  About sixty Indians turned out with  kettles, and managed to put the fire  out with water from the lake. A large  amount of the stores for next year  were burned and several sleigh  dogs; but the priests' house and the  mission wore saved. Great credit is  due to George Lontiet, steersman on  the H. B. Co.'s boat, and Captain  Kelly for their work in checking the  flames.

The cultivating of silage com should  be as thorough as for any corn crop,  and it safe to say tin- more thorough  the   cultivation   the   better   the' corn  Many   mistakes   have   been   made   by  planting a variety of corn which will  not mature.    The corn should  be cut  at the stage of maturity when it contains the largest peiveniage of digest.- \  ble nutrients.    This is when the kernels are  well  glazed and  beyond the  roasting stage, but not dead ripe. Then   .  every portion of lhe plant is eaten and  is uot only palatable,  but it contain.  a    higb    coefficient    of    digestibility.

The testimony of his accuser,  Miss Blanche Choquette, aged 21,  was the chief evidence.  Following her statement, Dr.  McLeod, who had been called in  consultation, was sworn. He  said he had been called and Dr.  Verner was on the case. The  girl was sent to the hospital.  She told him she had brought  the trouble upon herself.  Mrs. Marie Louise Choquette,  the girl's mother, was the last  witness.   She said the first she  knew of what had been done to  her daughter was when on   a  certain Monday her daughter became worse,  and Bert Barclay,  the man who was said, to have  been responsible for the girl's  condition,  sent for Dr. Verner.  He came in the afternoon, but  she could not see very well what  he did at the time.   Dr. Verner  later advised calling a physician  in consultation, and Dr. McLeod  was called.   Later she asked Dr.  Verner for money and wanted a  check.   She explained there was  no intention to blackmail,   but  that she desired to secure a payment from the accused physician  as she believed it would be a  strong acknowledgement of his  guilt and she wished to trap him.  She said she had been advised to  do this by LeBaron, a private detective, who is working for the  prosecution.  I The defence did not introduce  any testimony, and the cross-  examination of the prosecution's  witnesses was not severe.  Mr. D. G. MacDonnell undertook the cross-examination and  disclosed the probable line of defence. He brought out forcibly  the fact that the girl had told Dr.  McLeod she herself was responsible for her condition. She again  stated that she told this at the  request of Dr. Verner.  She was then asked if it were  not a fact that her mother had  gone to Dr. Verner and demanded money, threatening exposure  if he did not pay.

The  court   declared   that it  could not accept her story, not  even being favorably impressed  with the manner in which she  gave her evidence,  while Mr. D.  G.  Macdonnell,  K. C, again repeated that in this case the defence had to do with blackmailers  as the chief crown witnesses; The  story of Blanche Choquette was  entirely   beyond    belief.    The  crown was wrong in its dates,  and   had   hopelessly  failed to  establish its case.   The   doctor  was emphatic in his denial of che  whole story.   Thereupon the case  collapsed.   Mr.   S.   D.   Schultz  appeared with Mr.  D. G. Macdonnell  for  the   defence,   Mr.  Charles Wilson, K.C, acting for  the crown.   The doctor was congratulated by his friends upon  his acquittal.  Where We Learn Sidestepping  "Jack, I'm grieved to hear that  you have lately told your mother  several falsehoods.

Two red foxes are roving wild in  "Washington Park. The animals are living in holes, slinking forth at night to  trap their prey. Indiana is believed to  be 'the former home of the invaders of  civilization.

In former -winters Washington Park  was almost colonized by rabbits, but  this winter the long eared creatures  have been comparatively scarce.

Tii. widespread public iiuerf.L in the  Kinriide murder mystery has served to  cail attention to the different methods  ui' IVit. ling out crimes pur.-:u.d by lhe  police of Lurope. the United Slates and  Canada, and particularly in view of the  comments made by newspapermen from  across the border, in attendance at the  coroner's investigation, who have made  special allusion to the fact that the police here ignore the "third degree/'  '.Die "third degree'' is a term one frequently hears applied in big criminal  ca.es in Uncle Sam's domains, but it is  doubtful if a majority of people in any-  city ou this side of the frontier know its  meaning, for it is not tolerated in Cannon. Jt is frowned down by Canadian  jurisprudence. In brief, the ''third degree" i.s a "confession" obtained, from a  prisoner under duress and by means of  force.  The Montreal Herald, commenting on  it. points out that foreign' writers^ unfamiliar with the broad spirit of British  institutions which pervades every agency  ol' tbe government in its relationship to  the private citizen, of course cannot ^understand why an individual against  whom there is* nothing but suspicion is.  not placed under duress and "made to  tell" what he or she knows.  The Herald publishes the following  ���������������������������jpccial article by Maxwell Smith,, showing how the "third degree"' is worked in  United States cities and elsewhere.  Are all the horrible phases of the  "third degree" published in the newspapers the truth, or are they only canard? aiming-at sensationalism?

Wilhclin, and a man named Nicholas  Sicca, who are in custody charged with  the crime, were subjected to the most  revolting measures in the effort to secure admissions from them.  l.oferring to the Newark case, ono  of the foremost criminolog.il* in Canada��������������������������� ..-here, he said, he knew of no  occasion on which coercion was used  to make a prisoner speak���������������������������remarked  that such a* loathsome thing as to  carry the corpse back to the scene of  the crime and make the suspected man  stumble over it in the dark, and then,  as he lay on top of the body, to switch  on a blaze of light; or to take the dead  man's wife to the morgue at midnight,  without giving her any inkling of  where she was going, and to suddenly  put her into the'room where her husband was laid out in death, was���������������������������why,  lhe idea was unspeakably repugnant  that it was hard to credit it to even  a police officer. Both of these happenings are. said to have occurred in the  initiation of the two prisoners in the  Newark tragedy referred to. but they  nre emphatically denied by the Chief  of Police, of that city.  The Newark murder, and the process  adopted by the police to extract information are .o recent and fresh in the  public mind that it is hardly worth  while recounting all the details.

To Chicago  is ascribed the doubtful honor of coining the phrase, if not the inquisitorial  ..ystem which it signifies.  Y.ai. ago, it i.s told, when Chicago  earned its title of "the iough<-_ city in  .\mcrica," the greater part of its "population wsis of such a motley and .scoundrelly nature that, to gain information  and suppress crime the mo.t extreme  ineasui.. were nect _������������������ary.

There is one case which the writer re-  enlls-n which the victim was driven permanently insane. Ic occurred in a large-'  city in Michigan. A young mini was accused of the ���������������������������murder of his.employer, but.  he pleaded ��������������������������� innocence. The 'police were  satisfied that he was the slayer, but  lucked sufficient evidence to convict  him, so, after all other expedients had  been 'tried, resort was made to the 'Third  Degree."  Here, however another line was followed from that employed in the Newark murder. In the infliction of the  "Third Degree" the coqxse generally  plays an important part, the accused  in most cases being unexpectedly confronted with the victim-of the crime al  some stage of the operations.  With regard to this youth,.the police  used only a rigorous method of cross-  examination, which, although it was continued until the prisoner was completely  off his head, failed to induce a confession. J.very four hours, half a dozen  officers, would enter the imprisoned  man's cell, and, grouping themselves  around him, would pour in a- pcr_.ee  fusillade of question-.  The prisoner would be engaged by an  officer facing him, when one in his rear  would suddenly break in. One after the  other they threw at hini queries in. the  effort to demoralize" him; 'then all would  'caJk al the same time and overwhelm  him with the weight of their, int.rroga-.  tion,-which required"thought if non-committal an.w.r wa. to be made. Thus  for one .hour out of every five was the  prisoner siibjcct.d io this nervt.-rackiug  oi.Ieai.  ���������������������������'    DENIED iUM SLEEP.  Nol only in the day_iinc did they pester him, but at nigiiu too. He was prac-  ticauy denied sleep. Hardly wo ma uc b?  oil'-to the land oi dreams b.fore an officer awakened him to ask some pointed  question. As soon as he wa. again dosing another would appear with further  inquiry. He would go away but as soon  a a the prisoner was once mo-re asleep  he w.io aroused and que.rioned again.  Day and night was the tin fortunate  youth persecuted in this fashion with unceasing examination, but throughout il  ad he never incnminat.il hinrscii, or, in  fact, displayed any inside knowledge of  the'murder. .The'hitter is all the more  rcniai-1. ible when it is considered that he  was taken uuawares so..often, especially  . _~fl mT_ iii_ If r_ iiii er^-i f-a w a k e n l-u���������������������������f r o_>_-  slunibt- and given a pertinent question  to answer, the interrogated person, I. -  ing iu a sub-consciousness state, general.,' unwittingly tells the truth.  '_ he outcome of this horrible period ot  iin.wering and unsleeplesiiiess was, in  the natural order of'things, that thu mail  went to pieces. Tired by the deiual of  lhe rest which it craved, the nuurs brain,  ulreadv over-tuned and supersensitive  wi'ch trying to anticipate the next examination aad have answer ready, became hopelessly involved.

Hc was convicted, to be sure, but''  he was mad at the. time of his trial.  Even the "Third Degree" had failed to  .drag from him a confession.  '     A CANADIAN CASE.  The foregoing story brings up a case  of a similar'nature, in so far as it was a  preying on the mind without any bodily  violence, in Canada���������������������������the only one on  record. The Canadian case was nothing  like so protracted���������������������������it lasted but a couple  of hours���������������������������and while it was the practice  of tho "tliird degrca,'.' it was in a mild  form and unattended by any of the terrible incidents which usually make up  the American, procedure.  The occurrence, of quite recent date,  was in respect to a ��������������������������� particularly brutal  killing, in which both an axe and a shotgun had been used. The crime took  place in a country town, and through  clever and quicks work on the part of  the detectives a man was speedily in custody. -He was arrested some distance  from lhe county seat, and as that , was  the location of* the nearest jail, aud  there was no railway connection, a horse  and rig were procured to convey hira to  the lockup.'  As they were getting into the rig,o..e  of the officers conceived the idea of placing the axe and gun, which had also  been secured, __iu front of the prisoner  to see what effect their presence .would  have on him. Accordingly, they were  stood up against the side of the.wagon  in lull view of the prisoner, and that  the scheme might be fully-worked out.  a circuitous route was taken to the jail.  Before they had gone far one of the 'e-  tectives contrived to rattle the blade of  the axe against the gun-barrel. The manoeuvre had an immediate result. When  the weapons came into contact with a  clear cold rattle the prisoner was observed to 9hudder and turn his head away.  PRISONER BROKE DOWN.  More convinced than ever that they  had the right man, tho detectives set  about playing the game for all it v _"s  worth."MileH and miles they drove, ;-nd  every few minutes the axe blade aud  gun barrel clashed against each oth.v.  Each time the sound arose the agitation  of the prisoner increased. Hc shuffled  his feet, moved his position many times  to the minute, and looked everywhere  but at the axe aad gun. More and more  .restless. he_ got._and���������������������������n9___w_ith__Mathias,  who murdered the Jew iu "The Bells''���������������������������  when the metals were now actually rattling, his imagination conjured up the  sound. At last, when the detectives were  wondcriug how "much" longer they  would have to drive round about their  destination, hc broke down totally and  confessed to the murder.  CONFESSION NOT ADMITTED.  Of course, a confession or informatiou  extracted by means of threats, torture or  promises of benefit is not permissible  by law, bul in the case just mentioned  uo such thing was attempted. The matter wa.s simply one of making a suggestion which, preying on a guilty conscience, bore fruit. H wins therefore  quite within the letter of the statute,  which, regretfully, cannot be. said of the  methods  of the'United States  police.  Only one case is recollected, south of  the line, in which lhe court declined to  allow a. confession gained through the  "third degree," although the law there  regarding threats, etc.. is the same as  in Canada. That was tiie murder of a  woman in Detroit, of which a young  Canadian wa. accused, about eighteen  months ago. Notwithstanding the confession lie was acquitted. ,  There is not a little similarity between  some phases of the American third degree process in its later refinements and  the French system of detective work  known as the"''reconstruction" system.  In the hitter an-effort is made to take  the suspect through the whole performance of the crime, repeating all lhe  event'-, and circumstances connected with  it. and making the suspect himself go  through the actions ascribed to the doer  of the crime, as far as possible exactly  as if the thing wore being done over  again. The object'of all this is partly  the psychological effect upon the suspect, but partly also (o give the police an  accurate notion of the attendant, circumstances from which they often d.  rive valuable pointers.  The French and American systems have  undoubtedly reacted on one another to a  considerable degree.. A case in Michigan  not long ago was virtually "reconstructed" in full detail, with good results. The  case was one arising from a violation of  the tenth commandment:' "Thcu shall  not covet thy neighbor's wife."  A man was in love with another's wife  and. wishing to have her for his own, he  proceeded to remove the stumbling block,  that is, the husband. The '"Jove pirate"  boarded with the couple, so that the work  was infinitely more easy than under ordinary circumstances, and one night  when he was alone in the house with his  rival, overcome by his all-consuming  passion for the woman, lie killed him.  The murderer had an express wagon,  and having stowed the body in a trunk  he drove it right across the city and cast  it into a swamp, under the impression  that it would be immediately ..wallowed  up and the man's disappearance consequently enshrouded in mystery for evermore,   lie thought wrong.  Within ii few hours the body was discovered and identified, and, the murderer's love for the newly-made widow  being well known, suspicion at once fastened upon hint. People who had seen  him driving across the city when he had  the body on the trunk as a passenger  was found and with these posted at the  various points they had occupied at the  time he passed, the suspect, under the  direction of detectives, was made to recover the route over which hc had driven  the body, so that hc might-be identified  and the net drawn closer around him.  His nervousness increased as the journey progressed, but had he known what  awaited him at the other end of the ride  he would probably have refused lo go  on, for when they ultimately arrived at  -the swamp,,,.there ' .the police had the:  corpse stretched out for his benefit. A  confession resulted, 'and, backed as this  was by.the identification of the horse,  the vehicle, and the man, by the people  who had been posted along the way, he  was sentenced to life imprisonment. In  this incident there was nothing especially  [abhorrent' except that the body of the  murdered man might have been given its  place in the mortuary decently and substituted by a "dummy.  The above instances serve to illustrate  the working of the '-third degree"  against which there,is always a storm-of  condemnation when'lhe story leaks "out.  The practice may be reprehensible in  some respects, but in others it has its  good points, and while it savors of the  barbarous, that some such measure is  essential with criminals who are known  to be guilty, but against whom proof-  cannot be found, seems, looked at from  "an unprejudiced ��������������������������� standpoint, right enough. Why should a person whose guilt  is beyond question, hc allowed to go free  on account of lack of evidence���������������������������and  there are many that way���������������������������when he can  be persuaded to confess? That is how the  police, in the United States consider the  matter.  The fact that they know they 'nave the  right man does.not exonerate them if he  was to be released. They are called- inefficient nnd many other hard names if  thev do not niuke arrests for crimes j but  arrests,are no good if a conviction cannot b.-secured.' ''We are''inefficient' if  wc do not get.a conviction,' they argue.  "Why, therefore, let this "man���������������������������who we  arc convinced is-guilty���������������������������go free because  there is not enough .known evidence to  convict him? If the 'third degree'^ will  extract a confession, why not, initi*te  him?" And there is .some sense in that  line-of reasoning.
