An objection by defendant lo  Mr.' Landmark sitting, on grounds of  bias, was overruled, and tbe hearing of  evidence began.  The complainant, was first sworn and  identified a copy of the paper wilh articles containing reference-- meant for  him. What meaning he took from  them was disallowed.  B. R. Campbell was culled to  prove  publication.   The defendant admitted  as tar as" preliminary  trial'went that,  he wrote  the  aiticles   complained 'of.  , Messrs. G.  E.   Grogan,   K.

Mr. Murphy   addressed   tlier magis-  'trates and made a really excellent de-'  'fen.-e.     He   said,   in   effect,   (bat the  matt er of'the alleged   libel  was only  one,  of   public   interest,   closely   connected with em rent politics and dealt  only wilh Mr. Sibbald in  a  public  capacity.       No    allegations     of   j corruption   ivcif,   made,   and    nothing  charged   against    complainant's   private * character.      Character,    as far  as'inlrodiu-ed, had been first mentioned  by  complainant  in   discussing  his  dismissal, and on that  alone  was it alluded to.    lie could if he  thought necessary produce plenty  ol wilnesses'to  prove that sense'of il.

What is Being Done to Stand Off the  Columbia.    ii  The  river   bank   protection   work- is  now in full swing thopgh   the absence  of the  wire  ordered   in' the   east   has  caused a temporary delay.   The new  mattress is being placed in asubstantial  manlier.    It is laid on' a frame of sawn  timbers 5x8 in size which  are grooved  and bolted   with g-inch-holts and   on  top the  timbers are 8x10 >vith  brush  between packed clcse for a depth  of  three feet.   The whole will   be. solidly  marled down with wire and, ballasted  with   rock   when   complete.    On   the  portion between where  work  stopped  last year and the old  smelter  point,  a  distance of about 1300 feet,   it is estimated   there  are  about 3000 loads  of  brush packed, and all   is  in   readiness,  in fact waiting, for the wire  to  finish-  ofF with limbers and   rock.    Over the  woik done last year tbe  new, mattress  will also extend to  llie point of com-  menceinent   opposite   the    Methodise  patsonage, but, it will not be quite so  thick there being some two and a  half  feet through.    This new mattie.-s  will  be. throughout, some 100 feel wide, that  is from side to side, and 75 feet of that '  will be in  tbe  river.    The  whole, will  be ballasted some :MK) yards of rock  being put on it.  At lhe break on Third  Street   lhe   inallres-i   may   be    made  wider and improvements  there  might  reiisoiinbly I xpected to  include  this1  cribbing,and rc-lnring of the street to  that on account of the character lie  (Air. Sibbald) had before dismissal that  anything he could say .now would not  help bis character at all.  Dr. AlcKechnie said what; struck him  on reading the "Questions and Answers" aiticle was that there had been  a misappropriation of a sum of money  by Air. Sibbald. He thought the editorial reflected very seriously on Air.  Sibbnld's character.    ,  T. E. L. Taj-leu's first impression on  reading the article "Questions and Answers" was that the money bad been  carelessly or indiscriminately used,  he had no other impressions, lie bad  formed no idea on first reading it but  when bearing of libel he had come to  conclusion slated. He thought icgard-  ing the editorial it cast a saicat--tic  imputation on Air. Sibbakl's character,  holding him up to ridicule. He did  not think it was meant to insult him;  thought it W43 mer.ely some of usual  ed between libel and.'fair comment,  thought thedefendant.li,id oversLepped  the limit and should be committed for  trial.        '  Their worships then asked that the  court be cleared for half an,hour when  they would announce their decision.  Within that lime it was again opened,  llie large audience le-assemblcd and  then Mr. Haig spoke.  The bench had given ils careful consideration to the case, to the circumstances conn-cted with it, and to the  evidence given. They bad come to  the conclusion that the defendant had  not exceeded the bounds of fair comment and they therefore dismissed the  case.  In agreeing with the decision as expressed by Air. Haig, AI:.

Wc think, anxious  one, that there's nothing very trumpery  about lhat ������10,000 lying snug   in   the  estimates for river bunk protection yet  that if_ we lenieniber aright was one of  o'ar excuses for delay.    Of course,   we,  know theie were  some   who   wouldn't  piynny attention   to   advice   in,   the.  matter,   thoy   were   going   to   "push  thing-* through,"   but   the   Mail   and  local     public    opinion     (synonymous  terms . of   course)   looked" before, rit  leaped, and now oven   the   select   few  accept tiie situation  with   equanimity,  sliiugthe.il- shoulders and say "perhaps  'lis just us well."   That $-10,000 would  ha\o been  hard   to   lloat   as    a   loan,  anxious one, and have   cost  }'ou   if   a  property holder quite a little to repay,  besides'robbing   tho   town    of   much  neejjecl improvements on(, streets,   etc.  JJe "with   the   crowd"    [Inquirer,   ancl  admit that it was better, by not letting  'auxie'fy'=Tniuun    discretion,    to   keep  incorporation waiting till  it   could   be  got'on fair and   proper   terms   to   the  town and its property holders.  ,"We think, loo, though it was not  longer than that required,in the former  niatter, that' delay could well be  justified on the grounds of llio amendments made lo the special bill of 1S9S.  .Especially could it be defended on the  amendment extending the municipal  franchise. That extension (it is unnecessary to go intO'details) to inuludc  the hundred or more who though not  property owneis are, bona fid.i residents  and slrii'ng iu their way just as much  as the best to build-up and maintain  ���������the town was a progressive step that  that -should be made in the rircum-  slance.s, and but a deserved recognition  of people entitled lo it.

Liberal organizations throughout the  district should urge, if this '-matter is  to be dealt wKh, the creation of the  Kootenays into a separate pailiament-  ary division for the next election.

It seems to'me  that I bete is really no argument,  in favor of prevenlingaiiy capitalist, American or Canadian,  i'i om   building railroads in Canada,  if be 'wishes to do so  without,   loss   to   the   public.     JI is,.I  Lbink, the Jirst, time in   the history of  Canada that, the -Dominion parliament  has deliberately excluded a "railway in  an unoccupied leiritory miller such circumstances   as   have   existed    in   the  Boundary   Creek   district..    The   fact  that, the Canadian   Pacific,  is   building  into that country does not,   it appears  to nn1, afford any excuse   whatever for  the exclusion, ol the Corbin road.     All  ���������other nails  ot   Kootenay  are  now  in  possession of railway competition, and  it, is intended by the course heietol'ore  pursued   to   (prevent    the Boundary  Creek district from reaping the benefit  of that competition.      When' il,  is  roil ii'iiilierod that the   C. P.

On lhe other band, if Lhe  Corbin   t-oad  gels in, not. only will  the  dist rict, have  railway competition,  but also smelling  competition. 'The fact  tbat,  the  oies  are   sent, lo  the   United   Slates  to be  smelted seems to nie  lo,cut no   figure  whatever in Lhe controversy.

RoMilys allowed  things to take their course. ,  Soon lhe dressing began; and she sat*  Ihronglf-itciuite calmly. When Lord  Piirkhurst rode across for a shoi t visit  'that day he only noticed that she  seemed strung-up, nervous, and that  the Hush of love which mantled her  cheek died away to pale rather quickly.

"It,   wa.s���������I   saw   him,  there,'*   said  -, Rosalys. ���������  Ten minutes later she was kneeling  against the altar railinsrs, with Lord  Parkhurst on her right hand.  The wedding was by no means a gay  one, and there were few people invited,  Rosalys, for one thing having hardly  any relations.  ��������� The newly united pair got away  from the  house  veiy   soon   after   the  'ceremony.
