I can assure yon that  1 received no news to that effect  official or otherwise. I suppose  what yon meant was that the Liberal party or rather members  thereof needed squaring, which is  indeed trne, going on the pledged  word of Sir Wilfred Lanrier that  the V.. V. &E. railway "should  go through Canada unless prevented by engineering difficulties."  I am "endeavoring to get the railway, to do s">. I trust we people  np here will get your assistance in  the matter, which is more than-1  can hope from the Boundary Creek  Times, which some timo ago published a short misleading article on  the subject.

The Latest Ottawa Scandal  Briefly put, the latest Ottawa  scandal, the Alberta Irrigation and  graxinglaud deal is as follows:  In May, 1905, changes were  made in the regulations governing  the disposal of public lands, by  which J. D. McGregor, a politician,  who had been exceedingly prominent in the Yukon during the Sif-  ton regime, and A. Hitchcock, another friend of the ex-minister,  were enabled to secure 96,482  acres on terms that were changed  back to those formerly prevailing,  almost immediately after the concessions had been made.  80 favorable were these terms  that these gentlemen were able to  sell oat in September, 1906, to a  London syndicate at a profit of  9350,000.  Messrs. Hitchcock and McGregor  also received a grant of 380,000  acres of public lands at 93.00 an  acre, it being stipulated that, if the  grantees dig irrigation ditches to  water one-fourth of it, they get the  entire block for 91.00 an acre, a  discount of $760,000!  These terms were also 00 favorable that the fortunate grantees  were enabled to sell out to the  same London syndicate at a profit  of $500,000.  Mr. Campbell, head of the irrigation branch of the Department  of the Interior, reported to the government recommending "that the  mailoaum price for lands within  the tract disposed of by the depart-  men be fixed at $5 aa acre, exclusive of water privileges." Apparently, in the interests of Meesrc.  McGregor and Hitchcock, this ex-  Amende Honorable  We want to do the square thing,  wrote . the editor . of the Hickory  Ridge Missourian, to old Spike  Thunderbush, of the McKinutry  neighborhood. Our readers will  remember that we have spoken of  him sometimes as the ragtag and  bobtail of all creation.  > That old scalawag has pUyed  more- mean tricks on us than he  has warts on his hands, and we've  given it to him hot and heavy  every time. We don't allow no  man to get the bulge on us without  coming back at him.  But .we've forgiven old Spike.  Last Saturday he dropped into our  sanctum and asked how much he  was behind on subscription. We  told him eleven years, and he dug  down in his jeans, fished np a dirty  wad of bills and squared up. ..Its  the deenntest thing he ever done  since we've been running a paper  in this town.  The old scarecrow was drunk  whenhe done it, but we don't lay  that np agai nst him. Old Spike has  some good points, and we shan't  say another mean thing about him  until he tries to run for office  again. We'll show him up then  in all his hideous deformity, but in  the meantime him and us are good  friends.���������Chicago Tribune.  Life in a Siberian Prison  Winter, fanged and remorseless  as winter is in these regions only,  had fallen on Siberia with a sort of  hungry vengeance, and lengthened  the long journey interminably.  Cooped up in a convict car, which  was divided np into some twenty  small, badly venlilated cells, it  seems- a miracle that we did not  peiisb miserably on the way. One  or two emaciated wretches, bitten  deeply by exposure and consumption, did, succumb, while the remainder of my companions  dwindled gradually in numbers as  we crawled tortuously from station  to Btation���������prison to prison���������over  the barren leagues between Russia  in Europe and the confines of the  empire. Akatui, a decrepid village at best, was more than half  buried in show when' we���������myself,  two other prisoners and guards-  arrived, after sedging the last fifty  mile stage of the journey. Rising  over the town, at one end was the  gray pn*Bon, surrounded by high  and and massive walls, built, it is  said, of material, taken from the  great wall of china. Half frozen,  nearly famished, and wholly discouraged by the. first glimpse of  what was to be my residence for  neariy two years, 1 was lodged in  a roomy cell in company with two  other prisoners of hope.  During the wretched eighteen  months that followed, every Bpare  moment we had was spent in planning an escape, but so heavy was  the guard maintained over the  town as well as the prison, and so  vigilant were the soldiery, that two  years passed before my dream of  escape came true���������two years of  d.'tidgirig, unremitting labor in the  silver mines of the region; two  years of rigor and hardships which  only the strongest constitutions  may possibly survive.

MARSHALL, Prop,  ,"*(Ever since Harry JK.- Thaw shot  and killed Stanford .White there  has been a great deal of discussion  of' "thes Unwritten Law,"  sometimes called "the Higher Law."  It was instantly cited as authority  for the murder of White, and for  some  weeks'-after' the tragedy it  was announced that Thaw would  plead justification, and rely on the  unwritten  law'to secure his uc-  quitat.     There, can   be no doubt  that if he had been tried immediately  after the Bhooting an average jury would not have convicted  him, for a large seetiou of the prres  teemed   with, dingraceful. .stories  about White. "He was represented  as a monster,  of equal fame as a  builder of houses and a 'wrecker of  homes.     The average opinion wa������  that  the   world   was   well rid of  White. .  -  - '     , THE REACTION  . It    was   inevitable   that  there  should be a reaction.' Here a mau  and there a man rose to i>peak for  Stanford   White.%- It  was hinted,  and then "boldly-asserted, that the  campaign  to blacken' him was inspired    by    Thaw.'    The"' people  paused and  began to doubt if ever  a mau lived as depraved as the  dead  architect   was-represented.  Stories about Thaw began to circulate aud about the artists' model,  who is his wife, and who is at,the  bottom of the quanvl.     At that  time the general opinion seemed to  be   that   Thaw   was a thoroughly  worthless char;t<-ter, and that, at  least,  there  was some good about  his victim.     The lawyers for the  defense have been quick to recognize  the change iu ' public sentiment,  and  it was expected that a  plea of emotional insanity would  be entered, 'for they believed that  if Thaw is,to esvapi punishment  he   must  shelter  himself behind  seme -.written law.     Since then,  however, ]the -wife of the accused  man has gone on the witness stand,'  and   has told a story, with every  mark of sincerity, that represents  White as a .monitor.   There can  not be the slightest doubt that if  the jurymen believed her they will  be inclined to free Thaw, no matter what plea is entered on his behalf.  'the famous sickles case .  Many homicides have pleaded a  higher law, and have escaped the  penalties of their rash deeds.    The  California lawyer, Delmas, who is  the chief of Thaw's counsel, has  made his fine reputation as au advocate of the unwritten law.    In  the  United  States the expression  seems to have originated with the  Sickles-Key case, many years ago.  Key was the son of the author of  "The Star-Spangled Banner," and  Sickles was a general in the United  States army.     Key became intimate with the general'^ wife, and  the husband heard of it.    He surprised the pair exchanging caresses,  and then,   getting a revolver, followed Key out of the house. He told  bim his offense could be atoned  ouly by death.   Then he shot bim,  was tried and acquitted.     After  the trial he created a profound sensation by offcriug to take his wife  back again.    She remained a good  wife until her death.    AH through  the   trial   public   sympathy  was  unanimously with Sickleu,.and he  left the courtroom a hero..  CHARACTER   O.V TRIAL  - It is to the Sickles case .that tho  scores of men and. women who  have since pleading "the unwritten law" go back for a precedent.  They have sought to shelter themselves not only; behind the general'*  unpunished deed, but behind his  chivalrous character as well. Many  of them have learned to their coat  that in cases of this kind the character of the slayer is as much on  trial as the nature of the deed.  It is not competent; for any blackguard to plead higher law justifl-  cation for. the slaughter of some  faithless boon, companion. There  is an old legal saying to the effect  that he who seeks ��������� equity must do  equity. Tne character of the victim is also an important consideration with a jury despite the axiom  that all' men are equal before the  law. It is amazing'that in a land  where divorce is so swift and easy,  unwritten law. should be so frequently invoked. If a man were  compelled to live with a woman  after she had proved faithless  there would be much greater  avenging his wrongs upon her betrayer.  The BrnDSoNG case  A few  weeks ago the unwiitten  law received a ttemendous reverse,  in  one of the'most amazing  verdicts ever returned.    The case was  one in-which a Mrs. Birdsong shot  and   killed  a ' Dr.   Butler.    The  The woman learned that the doctor had been boasting about her being in love with him. ' Her friends  began to cut her on  the street, and  and sue was driven desperate with  shame.'   So she got a revolver and  went to Dr.   Butler's home.    She  claimed  that wheu 8he\ entered his  office he   tried   to kiss her.    She  shot him a couple of times aud followed   him   out on the verandah,  emptying her   revolver into   his  body.    She was arrested, pleaded  the unwritten  law,   but was sentenced to five years imprisonment for  manslaughter.   .The amazing thing  about .this trial  was that it hap-  in chivalrous Mississippi.      Mrs.  Birdsong belongs to one of the oldest   families   iu   the  state.    Her  uncle is a Uuited States senator  and dufcuded her.    -There was no  doubt but what she had been slandered by T)r. Butler,' and at a time  when-'evcryone was discussing the,  unwritten   law. in  relation to the  Thaw case, it sent her to.prison. ||  LAWYERS AND UNWRITTEN LAW  Another notable case of unwritten law is that of Congressman-  elect George K: Favrot; who kiiled  Dr.   H.   H.   Aldridge,   of Baton  Rouge, Miss.,  because "the latter  traduced his wife. * Favrot   was  himself a good lawver'and a respected judge before the deed, aud  should know what, he is talking  about when he says ..that the law  gives  uo   proper   redress   for the  wrong done him.   -. His case has  not yet'"been    disposed   of,   but  Judge Kernan, who advocated the  principle of the unwritten law at  the American bar association's annual meeting, has been employed  to defend him. Another,celebrated  case now peuding,.is that of Mrs.  Anna Bradley,  who killed Senator  Brown,   of Utah,   in Washington.  Brown was an immoral brute, who  had wronged the woman, and probably inherited the fate that overtook him.     Whether the jury will  think Mrs.   Bradley had a right to  become bis executioner is quite another question.  A REFORM NEEDED  The unwritten law is a kind of  lynch law, and the one is as much  opposed to our modern civilizatiou  as the other.    The euro for one ia  the cure for the other, and that is  A revision  of the  unwritten law  making more severe penalties for  the slander and betrayal of women.  If these punishments were made as  severe as those meted out to forgers  or burglars, and if one or two hotheaded: pleaders of the higher law  were banged, there would bei a falling off in crimes of the Thaw, type,  ���������Mail and Empire.  ��������� = ; = *���������T  sertion and he tried again.   ' j  , , Gentlemen, he said,  I.kin lick  any man in the whole state of Vir-  ginny.  The words were hardly out of  his month before a'tall,'sinewy  man from his own part of the  state entered the game-and gave  the'boaster a good thrashing." ? .  The mountaineer had a sense of  humor He slowly picked himself  up arid faced the group to which he  had 'boasted. -  ' Gentlemen, he said, I am now  ready to acknowledge that I kiv-  ered too much territory in that  last statement.
