Wo had a  delightful time there. This was my first  trip through there.''  VOLUME VIII.  SHE MA  Betsey Bigley   Had  Strange Career.  CANADIAN BY BIRTH  Life of the Oxford County Girl  Whose Doings Have Created  a Great Sensation.  Woodstock, Dec. 5.���Tbe little vil-  ags of Eastwood, a few miles from  here, was the giilbood home of Miss  Betsey Bigley, who as tbe wife of Dr.  Leroy S. Chadwick, one of the prominent physicians of Cleveland, is the  ..central figure of the sensational story  which has aroused the interest of the  whole continent.  It was in the year 1878, while still  living in her village home tbat Mrs.  Chadwick first came into public notice. One day sho called at a barber  shop and having had her hair cat off  and purchased a false moustache, she  tried to raise money on a gold watch.  This aroused suspicious aud the barber, called in thc police, who notified  her father and had ber taken borne.  From this time her peculiarities began  to develop. She carried around with  her .a card, on which was inscribed:  "Miss Bigley, heiress to $13,000," and  to keep up this reputation sbe went in  for expensive purchases. She bought  hundreds of dollars' worth of dry goods  and paid for them'with a note endorsed  by a prominent farmer near Brantford.  Another purchase was an organ, for  which she gave her own note, which  she failed to pay wh'en'it fell" due, giving instead, however, a note signed  by the late Reuben Kipp.  This was forgery and Miss Bigley as  the result of the transaction found herself in jail. Curiosly enough she was  acquitted on the ground of insanity  and immediately after the trial she disappeared from tbis neighborhood, and  was seen no more until 1889, when-she  returned seemingly very well-to-do.  In January, 1890, she again came  prominently before tbe public, through  her arrest at Toledo, under the name  of Madame De Vere, on a charge of  forgery. She was accused of forging  the name of Richard Brown, of Cleve  land, to a note for ��10,000. She was  acquitted' on the first indictment, but  others stood against lier, lind'she was  Anally convicted and sentenced to'.ten  years in prison. At the end of three  and a half years she was silo wed out  on parole. .She then adopted tbe name  "Hoover," and under it wns married to  Dr. Child wick, on Aug. 26, 1897, at  Windsor.  Her mother, Mrs. Mary Anne Bigley,  now lives in a modest little house in  Woodstock, with a sister, Mrs. Campbell, whose husband died about six  months ago. Mrs, Bigley is well up in  years and is of a highly respectable  family which has lived around this  town for many years, Her father was  a farmer at Eastwood, and was reputed  to be an upright and honest man.  The family in fact have always borne  the reputation of plain*; quiet people  who paid their debts and attended to  their own business. Betsey is the or_y  member who has ever deviated from  this way of living. , (  ,. ,'"���    -  A correspondent called at the family  home on Dundas street yesterday and  asked for Mrs. Bigley- He, was received at the door by, Mrs. Campbell,  who told him tbat her mother was in  Cleveland. On the subject of her sister,  however, Mrs. Campbell was very reticent and beyond stating that she had  never known tliat Mrs. Chadwick  went under, the name of De Vere, sbe  gave the correspondent1 absolutely no  nformation.  In the meantime Wxs. Chadwi ek ap-.  pears to have secluded herself at the  Holland House in New York, where  she maintains a suite of rooms thc  year round. JHer husband and ber  daughter by a former marriage, are  supposed to be abroad.  Mrs. Chadwick herself has spent  much time in travelling in Europe and  on landing iu New York in 190S, paid  duty on $10,000 worth of diamonds and  other jewels. At the same time she  wore a $10,000 necklace, but on being  challenged regarding them she claimed  that they had beeu purchased in the  States. They were held for a few days,  but her high social position enabled her  to recover them without paying i*uty.  In the same year she lost a $4,000  brooch in a sleeper on the, Pennsylvania road, but it was picked- up" and  returned to her. J  She has been at the Holland Huuse  for several weeks registered- as "Mrs.  Cassie L. Chadwick, and it is said.that  she is under the care of, a physician.  In reply to a note sent to her apartments she emphatically denied tbe  stataements in the newspapers to' tbe  effect that' she had been known as  Lydia De Vere, that she bad served a  term in the penitentiary and that* she  bad made use of aliases.  '���It is all a wicked falsehood," she  wrote, and added that gi eat wrong had  beeu done herself "and other innocent  persons. .-���.-.'  Detective Manley,' of Toledo, says  that when she practised clairvoyance  in Teledo, she had among her clients  some of tlie most prominent.people ofthe city, some of them great financiers.  It is stated by tbe solicitor of tbe  Brooklyn banker, who advanced Mrs.  Chadwick $190,000,- that she represented that a Cleveland banking company had $5,000,000 of securities belonging to her and that she also showed  him a note for $500,000signed by a nr.an  whose financial-standing couldnol'be  questioned. He says he-was not hypnotized and that the transaction waa  purely a business oue.  TH  For ths Mayoralty and  Their Platforms.  NELSON, B. C., SATURDAY DECEMBER 10, 19C4.  THE LIGHT QUESTION  Campaign of Misrepresentation  .. ���Success Versus  V   ,-  Failure.  ��� Since the foregoing was written Mrs.  Chadwick has been arrested, and arraigned before a TJuited States commissioner, charged.with aiding and  abetting a bank official to misapply the  funds of a national bank. Tbe case is  likely to deyelop features of a most  sensational character. .  Andrew Carnegie was  very angry  when asked for a  further statement  relative to the use of his name iu the  financial troubles of Mrs. Chadwick.  Mr. Carnegie does not wish- to be  bothered any more about tbe Chad wick  woman. -His secretary said : "He is'  quite angry over this persistent use of  his name, aud wishes it- to' cease at  once. Once and for all he never knew  Mrs. Chadwick, or any other such woman, and he never signed any such  papers as reports credit him with.  That is all." .    ,  "Pretty Polly," said to bo a very  entertaining musical comedy, comes to  the Opera House next Monday evening. Its special claim to patronage, is  on account of i-js catchy songs, duets,  trios, quartettes, sextettes and dances.  A dispatch from Montreal, dated  Decern ber 6 announces that at a meeting of Conservative members and representative men ofthe party held Tuesday evening at the Windsor Hotel, the  political situation was fully and freely  discussed by nearly every person  present. It was.tbe unanimous wish  that Mr. R. L. Bordon should remain  in public life, and also retain his pos-  as,leader of the Conservative party.  Mr. Borden, who briefly addressed the  gathering, received a great ovation as  he began to- speak. He thanked his  friends and supporters for their kindness and devotion. The gathering was  informal and the leader thought it advisable to defer definite action until  the opening of Parliament, when tbe  party will be in a position to formally  discuss the situation.  To lhe Electors bf Nelson:  ��� At the request of a large number of  ratepayers of. our ~Qity, I have con-  sented to offer myself as a candidate  for the Mayoralty for the forthcoming  year. -If elected I- will give my best  efforts to carry ouCthe following, u r_f ;  1.

Botii of the  addresses app-uently recognize the  leed which may exist of cutting the  coat according to tlie quantity.of cloth  that may be available. There is nothing in the address of Dr. Rose at all  comparable in vagueness to the las,t  clause in the address of Houston,  wherein be promises to put a stop to  professional gambling-'without interfering with" thon-ea8bnable rights of in-  dividuals, watch" means anything; or  nothing according as one chooses to  interpret the' language. It was obviously so intended.by Houston.    .'  But the charge' against tbe-election  address and  attitude of Drl* -Rose to  i'��~-.    _r-��r  -.a   .  j! _, 1,   _._=_-_.y    -v     -.,-.. __^.       .  ..    r  which reference is made ' most frequently, in'-tbe columns of the Tribune  is in"regard"toltbe .construction and  -f �����     *~      a.      ���     ��i        .

Houston would have it appear���and if  strong and frequent assertions would  accomplish" thfs,&ifc. certainly would be  accepted by the'electors���that he alone  favors this; thatDr. Rose is in opposition to it, being in some inconceivable  way under tbe misineric influence of  the West Kootenay Power- and,,Light  Company ; thafefhfe alone is in favor of  tbe city of Nelson"o\Vuing and operating its ownlpo'wer station and placing  itself in a positioir-to supply'light to  the city attd cheap power to manufac-  It  his'  - - r      [       ,  address is explicit on this. point."  Houston still persists in such statement and contention. Now Houston* .well knows -that in' all this  he 'is' simply:, misrepresenting    the  Famous Men   of  Prize Ring.  THE    THREE    JACKS  Boxers .Who Have  Come.and  Gone after Making Names  ; -   for Themselves,     a  turiug industries - located therein  matters   not   that-.Dr.   Rose   iu  Above.is the address which has been  issued to theelectors of the city of Nelson Jby^Dr Rosejeandidate -for���the  "mayoralty for the yeair1905. For some  time, indeed since he anticipated that  Dr. Rose would be his opponent in the  forthcoming contest, John Houston  has been treating him to' column's of  abuse in the Tribune, and has been  seeking to raise false issues, and thereby to create a false impression regarding the position occupied by-Dr. Rose  on public questions. Throw mud  enough and some of it*will- btick���that  would seem to be the explanation of  Houston's methods.  Dr. Rose lias been represented by  him as a professing Christian and his  address as unworthy of one making  such profession. Wherein ? one would  ask after reading it. One seeks for an  answer to that question in vain. The  address is that of an energetic business  man, who, if elected, will endeavor to  carry .out such measures as he conceives to be in tbe best interests of the  city. He therein sets forth some of  the measures most needful in the interest of the city of Nelson, and he  promises his best endeavors to promote such measures. Wherein is this  inconsistent with such profession ?  Of this one may be reasonably certain, that no sane man will prefer  such a charge against Houston. His  language and methods savor more of  the gutter than anything higher.1  Having no respect for himself, he cannot be expected to respect others or to  pursue other methods.   .  Then Dr. Rose's platform is said by  Houston to be indefinite. Again, we  awk, wherein?   It is surely as definite  is   simply:, misrepresenting  attitude .toward.-.this matter and  the  address bf his.oppbn'ent.  -The latter is  ."���"      -*.*V     -    i '    *���   '        *    ' - ' .-  as strongly_ pjjedgedon this^matter as  the'forinefcan'b'e.   Yet it suits" Houst-  ton"to represent   matters  otherwise.

But over and above the election addresses of these two candidates, there  is another thought which we would  place before the electors. It is this. A  successful New York" business man  gave it as a result of his very long experience that in engaging men to do  work of any-kind. for_Lim,'_he laid_it  down as a rule not to be departed from  never to engage one who, had been a  failure so far as his business life for  himself was concerned. His long experience had taught him tna,t the man  who was unsuccessful for himself was  not likely to be otherwise in handling  the business a flairs of others. There  might be exceptions, but they were  exceptions. The application of this is  very obvious. We have before us two  candidates for the mayoralty of the  city of Nelson, one of whom by his  skill and energy has made a success of  his business, and the operations of thc  other have for himself simply spelled  failure. To whom of the two would  you most readily entrust the successful  conducting of thc business of otberst of  the municipality, with the expectation  of its being properly, energetically  conducted ? To tbe successful man, or  to him whose business life to far as he*  himself is concerned has been a failure ? This is a pertinent question for  electors to ask themselves.  Among the names mentioned in connection with seats at the council board  for tbe forthcoming" year, are A. H.  Clements, Harry Bird and R.SM..McDonald in the West Ward, and'-W. G.  Gillett and William Spry in the East  Ward.   AUJof these gentlemen are well  ���i  qualifled'for tbe office, and .it will be  to the credit of the citizens if they elect*  every one of them, aud their friends  believe that such will be the case.  "The St. Eugene has 400,000 tons of  ore ready for m inlng and shipmen t.   ���  "Those who follow the doings of the  prize ring often wonder what becomes  of all the pugilists who have helped  to make fistic .history," says the New  York Sun. ' Since John L. Sullivan  was in his primp, many fighters have  come and gone. Yet it is only twelve  years since Sullivan was defeated by  Jim Corbett for the heavyweight title.  Since 1892, when Sullivan realized  what decisive defeat meant, championships in the various classes have  changed hands many times. .The art  has improved. . Old methods have  given place to up-to-date ideas. Clubs  have been organized and disbanded.  New-referees with new iuterpretatious  of the rules have sprung into prominence. Yet the principles of boxing is  the same and will no doubt remain the  same until the end of time."  Twelve_years ago last September .the  sporting world was paying homage to  three Jacks���John,- L., Jack McAuliffe  and Jack Dempsey. With }he exception  of Dempsey, they are still alive, but  are dead as Juliuz Caesar as far as ever  lighting again is concerned. _ There is  a,peculiar trait about fighters of which,  the-public ino-wB lSttlOi.-^It Jstheir disinclination to'admit that their days of  usefulness in the ring are over. A  pugilist will do everything in his  power to keep from being called a ''has  been."- There is nothing that" pains  bin.' more than to be ignored while  others succeed him in the public affections.  Some lighters of a decade agoare still  as popular as they were in the heyday  of their career. An instance is John  L. Sullivan, who still retains his hold  on the affections of the people. The  same can be said of Jim Corbett, Joe  Choynski, and Bob Fitzsimmous.  Tliey~liave~bee n ableto keeptlieiTcog-  uomens alive by fighting. Corbett has  other ways of ingratiating himself before the public. He is a resourceful  press agent and knows how to shine  conspicuously in print. Corbett is intelligent and a good talker. He is  now an actor, a profession that invites  notoriety and fame.  ���I  ' Very little is heard nowadays of  Geprge Dixon. . He is in England and  although he fights as often us twice a  month, the results of these contests  rarely reaches this side of the Atlantic.  Yet five years ago Dixon's name as a  pugilist was something to conjure with.  Eddie Connolly, who fought best at  thc lightwoight limit; Kid Lavigne,  one of the best lightweight champions  the ring has known; Young GrifTo, of  Australia, as skilled a boxer as ever  wore gloves; Frank Craig, the Harlem  "Coffee Cooler," a negro who was near  the top of his class; Dan Creedon, of  Australia, a champion in hisday; Will  Curlcy, a topnotcher from "England;  Jack Downey, of Brooklyn, who drew  crowded houses every lime he fought;  Bi'liy Ernst, the "Bushwick Dutchman!" a great fighter;.Jack Everhardt,  of New Orleans, who had a punch that  brought his man to the floor; Martin  Flaherty, of Lowell and Oscar Gardner, the "Omaha Kid" who was the  first man to knock Terry McGoveru  off his feet, are still in the land ofthe  living, but out'of the business.

John Houston/boasts about what be  has done for tbe city of Nelson; in-1  deed lie never admits tbat anyone else I  bas ever considered the interests  of the city. Can any reliable authority give one instance where John  Houston has conferred a favor on the  cily of Nelson without being well paid  for it? Has he tilled an office to  which there was no salary attached ?  And like Oliver Twist, now he wants  more. And is it not bad enough to  pay so dearly for the services of John  Houston wiihout being foreed to submit to his coarse abuse? Everyone  who Makes part in the campaign  against this' stailfed politician must be  prepared for his*dose of slime from  the Tr ibune, and the ones'1 who \�� ill be  single d out for tbe most abhorrent tor-  ment are those who subscribed money  to keep John Houston out of the poor-  house and arc yet stockholders^in bis  paper.

After a long, useful and eventful career of twenty-eight _ .years *"on' the  bench, Judge Richardson retired last  year".' During the time that h^dispensed justics in the Supreme Court  of the Northwest Territory, he has sat  on many importeut cases,'but there is  one above all others with which his  name will ever be associated in the history of Canada. That is tlie trial and  sentence to lhe utmost rigor of the  law of Louis Riel, who fomented  two rebellions in thc Northwest, and  on whom the death sentence was  passed by Justice Richardson in May,  1886. With the noted halt-breed agitator were also sentenced a batch of  forty of the ringleaders of the rebellion  of 1885.  To a Vancouver Province representative Justice Richardson related many  interesting reminiscences of that historic trial. More than that he exhibited several photographs���some of the  lew. in existence���taken during the  trial of Riel after his sensational- cap-  ture by Gen. Middleton, while trying  to make his escape ovor the line into  United States. The pictures are excellent and show some faces that have  since become prominently: identified  with Canada's progress. One photo  shows' the Hon. Charles Fitzpatrick,  the present Minister of Justice, counsel for Riel iu that trial, who is shown  in the act of addressing the jury in th e  rebel's defence. Another personage  that has a local interest is Dr. Jukes,  then surgeon for the Northwest  Mounted Police, who examined Riel  on-his-sanity.���It'will be remembered  that the wily rebel as a last resort put  in a pica of insanity.- -Dr. Jukes had  Riel under his observation continually  after his capture an- until the conclusion of his trial. It was Dr. Jukes' evidence that was mainly" instrumental  in breaking down the insanity plea.  Dr, Jukes is father of Mr. Andrew  Jukes, manager of the local branch of  ^the Imperial Bank.  ''Yes, there was naturally a good deal  of interest taken inRiel's trial," said  Mr. Justice Richardson to the Province, "and the courtroom was crowded  to its utmost during each of the ten  clays the trial lusted. The trial-proper  lasted only six days, four days being  taken up with selecting a jury and  other technicalities. No, there was n'o  doubt of Riel's guilt���there could be  none���the only question at issue was  that of alleged insanity and���well, you  know how it ended.  "A notable fai t about Riel's trial was  that it was the firstcase of high treason  since the rebellion .of 1837. It was  tried under an old act passed during  the reign of Edward III. Tho foity  ringleaders, on the other hand were  not tried for high treason, but on what  is known as treason-felony. Their  cases were tried under an act that was  passed in 1869, when the Canadian  criminal laws were revised and passed  by the. Parliament of that year. * My.  decision was appealed to the court of  Queen's Bench at Winnipeg and again  to the Supreme Court of Canada at  Ottawa, but the sentence remained as  given."
