NELSON, B. C, SATURDAY, JULY 15,1905.  NUMBER 1  APPEARANCES  OF GUILT  That Have  Placed Innocent  Persons in Jeopardy.  "One of tho most terrible frightsit  ever had in my life," were the word's  with which Lord lluss.U of Killowen,  fie lute Lord Chief Justice, used to introduce an experience of his younger  days, says Lhe London Answers. He  was unknown and almost friendless in  London, and had gone one night to  tlie theatre, to forget in the amusement of a comic piece how badly  things were fining with him. Tlie  present and the futuie seemed alike  dark to him ; but the play was amusing, anil young,Russell became oblivious of all his troubles as he looked and  laughed from his seat in the gallery.  As, he and tho3e about hirti  were about to leave at the end of  the performance, a person close by dis-  c ��vered that. he ha! been robbed of  his gold watch, raised*an alarm, and  the police wereealled in.  "The robbed "person had been sitting  close to me," said Russell, "and my  heart stood still as it suddenly flashed  across me that the thief, iu terror lest  he should be caught 'with the stolen  watch upon;him, might have put it iu  my pocket. V If suspicion lighted on  me, and the watch were there, what  would become of me?     The thought  . Ailed me with such ..terror that I felt  ��� a cold perspiration "break <��ut on me.  Such a thing woul<_ mean absolute and  irretrievable ruin.'" But the police did  not light on me, anil I passed out as  calmly as I could.     As soon tn "i-"l��acl.:  ������' got a little- distance away I carefully  went through-all.iny pockets.   -The  '.watch:., was not   there. , I gave a sigh  of  relief as if I had escaped from some  av.Tui peril.".        ".'���/���''.���.  ... lliisseli's terror was by no means un-.  foutided. Thieves have often resorted  to the trick of "planting." property  they have feared to carry ih the pockets of perfectly innocent people. One  of the most famous instances i-i that of  a Bishop who, a few years back, on re-  itufaiii if from a fas'.'iiotiabl- society  fu net ion. was amazed to Unit a valuable gold watch in one of the pockets  ���of his episcopal coat.  ' He, of course, took it to Scotland  Yard with  explanations, and lhey be-  " ii nga-tilready-ii Hh^c-oiii iz_ unica! ion���wii h.  itiie owner of the missing valuable,  .handed it to him. The thief was never  .discovered. It seems impossible - for  ithe human mind to associate the steals  Sng-of gold watches with a Bishnpi  but had the defectives in proieeutinf  their search lighted up;>n an unfortunate and equally innocent party  of less dignity aiid character with the  watch in his pocket, he would have  found himself in a terrible dilemma. -  . A week or two bauk a lady appeared  in the courts to claim the contents of a  purse of which she became the possessor iu a most remarkable manner, and  under' circumstances which m iii lit  have proved most embarrassing. With  a little girl she was entering an omiii-  ,- bus in the West end ol" London, when  a passenger wha had just alighted discovered that she had lost her purse.  Inquiry was 'made among ull Ilie passengers in the vehicle without result.  The robbed lady went her way, and  the new passenger took her place in  the omnibus with her lillie companion. "N...-  Wlien she arrived home slit-, to lier  amazement, found the missing purse  atthe bottom of a small bucket that  she bad bought for the child \Vilh her,  and which sbe had been carrying in  her hand- Having at once communicated the fast to S-.Hlan-l Yard,-every  step was taken to discover Hie owner  of the purse and its contents���something like ��10.  the omnibus compuny.   The court decided iii favor of the ludy.  .  A m*n-suspected of burglary at Cardiff found himself placed in dire peril  through a woman's dress discovered iu  his box. A girl's dress had been stolon  by the burglars and had been .most  minutely described to the police by the  girl to whom it belonged. She identified the dress found in the prisoner's  box without the-slightest hesitation,  and it agreed in every respect with the  particulars she hud supplied the authorities. One of the jurymen, however,  wiis, In spite of all, not quite satisfied,  and he suggested that the girl should  retire with the dress and put it ori.  Fora long time the court waited, and  then the woman in attendance on her  came back to say that the prosecutrix  could not get the dress on. It had  been 'made foi- some ohe^much more  slender and smaller. The prisoner was  acquitted, but it had been a "close  shave" for him.  A witness in a Glasgow murder case  narrated how he hud saved himself  from a most unexpected and terrible  situation. ��� Walking* dowii a lonely  street one night he had suddenly come  upon the body of a woman lying upon  the pavement. -.-She had bee'n stabbed  to death and horror rooted'him to the  spot beside" her. While he was standing there other, people came up, ana  he liwokeat last to the fact that there  was a ciuwd of angry and threatening  persons arouiid him who regarded him  as the murderer.  He was in terrible danger, when a  means of escape Hushed across his  mind.

The doctor was sent for, and he administered  fresh restoratives. The woman recognized the doctor and spoke to him."  Incidents of this kind are far more  common in civilized countries to-day  than the layman suspects, familiar as  he may be with stories of premature  burial, it is averred in the newly issued  second edition of Premature Burial, by  William Tebb, F.E.G.S., and Colonol  Edward Perry Vollum, M; D., late  medical inspector in the United States  army. The authors point out the desirability of "waiting mortuaries"  such as exist iu many German cities,  the establishments in question being  supplied with every appliance for resuscitation, while qualified attendants,  in telephonic communication with a  medical superintendent, are ready for  instant action should that become advisable. A writer in the London  Standard avers that the authors of  this book have conferred 'a-lasting.service upon mankind :  "In some cases of coma, trance, catalepsy ,ft etc., the activity of, the vita}  functions is suspended-Sri a wiay* which  so exactly simulates death that, to all  outward appearance, even medical experts may be deceived. Many cases  are recorded in this book in which the  victims of these death counterfeits  have very narrowly escaped live sepulture, whilst many others have been  actually consigned to this ghastly  doom as shown by the most confirmatory evidence, such as, in vaults, the  body being found outof Ihecoftln, and,  in upturned., graveyards, a changed  po ilion, iu the coffin clenched fists  full of hair, bitten and mangled flesh,  atid the grave clothes torn to shreds.  And when it is remembeteJ what few  exhumations take place,  the conclu  sion seems warranted that the number  ofsuch cases thus brought to light can  be a small portion ot those in which  these post-burial death struggles reailly  take place, and whose only witnesses  are the biurds of the cotlin which imprison thc victims. High medical and  other authority is given for the statement that the only certain sign ol  t death is putrefactive decomposition  and that all other known tests, either  singly or combined, may fail to prove  its presence."  s  City Treasurer Wasson   is now the  proud   father   of  a- young son.

It started as a Conservative paper, and hss not changed  its politics during the eight years of  its existence. . Some of its contemporaries' have had a new set of  policies and ' political princ'ples  every day in the week, but The  Economist'has'been content to adhere unwaveringly to one political  faith.

From a spectacular point of view the eccentric  mayor may be interesting, but il is  a luxury that Nelson is paying  ��� dearly for at thc present lime.  It is generally believed that the  Conservative candidate in Alberni  ���will be elected. The reasons for  this belief are many, but the principal one is that the voters have absolute faith in Premier McBride  and his Government.

"WELLS, In a brutallj  frank article In the "Fortnight-  ly Review," gives us a striking  ". glimpse Into the future througt  what most people will consider a very  highly colored lens. His description of  the Nev/ Republic 5s, of. course, an arraignment of the present order of so-  tfety.  "The men of the New Republic," says  Mr. Wells, "will not be squeamish  either in facing or inflicting death, because they will have a fuller. s%nse of  the possibilities** of lif_e than we possess. They will have an ideal that will  make killing worth 'the while; like Abraham, they will have the faith to kill,  and-, they will have no superstitions  about death. They will naturally* regard the modest suicide of incurably  melancholy or diseased or helpless per-  sons as a high and courageous act oi  "^dutynratHei^tlWir^^cr^  they will regard, as indeed all men  ���raised above a brutish leveL do regard.  a very long term of imprisonment as  Infinitely worse than death, as being  indeed death with a living misery addled to its natural terror, they will, 1  conceive, where the whole tenor of a  man's actions, and not simply some  Incidental or Impulsive action, seema  to prove him unfitted for free life in  the world, consider him carefully and  condemn him and remove him from  being. All such killing will be done  with an opiate, for death is too grave a  thing to be made painful or dreadful  e.nd used as a deterrent from crime. It  deterrent punishments *re used at all  ln the code of the future, the deterrent  will neither be death, nor mutilation of  the body, nor mutilation of the life by  Imprisonment, not any horrible things 1  like that, but good scientifically caused ;  |W.ln, that will leave nothing but a  memory. Yet even the memory of overwhelming pain is a so__ of mutilation  of the soul. The Idea that only thosa  who are fit to live freely in an orderly  world s-tate should be permittedNto live  Is entirely again-st the use of deterrent -  punishments at all. Against outrageous  conduct to children or women, perhaps,  or for very cowardly or brutal assault*  of any sort, the men of the future may  oonsider pain a salutary remedy, at  least during the ages of transition  while the brute is still at large. But  since most acts of this sort do, under  conditions that neither .torture nor exasperate, point to an essential vlleness  ia' the perpetrator, I am inclined to  think'that even in these pases the men  of the.coming .time will be far less disposed to torture than to kill. They  will have another -aspect to consider.  Tb.e conscious Infliction of pain for. the  sake of the pain Is against the better  nature -of man, and lt is unsafe and de-'  moralizing for anyone .to undertake this  duty. To kill under the seemly conditions science will afford is a far less  offensive thing. The rulers of th* future will grudge making good people  inito Jailers, warders, punishment dealers,' nurses and attendants on the bad.  People who cannot live happily and  freely In the world without spoiling the  lives of others are better out ot it.  That is a current sentiment to-day, but  the men of the New Republic will leave  the courage of their opinions."  ________  A somewhat apocryphal anecdote of  Sir Wilfrid Laurier is going the rounds  of the United States press; During the  last general elections, it is related, a  Quebec Liberal, 'whose acquaintance  with Sir Wilfrid was only political,  sent this telegram to'-'his leader, who  was in Ontario on a speech-making  tour: "Report in circulation In tlils  county that your ��� children have not  been, baptized. Telegraph dental." To  which despatch the Premier sent this  reply: "Sorry to say report ls correot.  I have no children."  Dr. MacNamara, -in nfs collection of  child stories, tells one concerning that  wonderful, dream of Jacob's and the  angels going up the ladder to Heaven.  "Please, sir." asked one of the boys in  the class to which the story, was being  rehearsed, .'-'.why did the angels' want  to go up the ladder when, they had  H-wings?^-This-nonpluss&a=-tae-teacriJerr  who took a strategic mo veir nt tenths  rear by saying, "A'h, yes! % y? Perhaps one of the boys oan answer that."  And one. did. "Please, sir," said he,,  "because they waa a-moltlng." . -  Thomas A. Edison ls deaf, but, like  man'y whose hearing' is defective, lio.  sometimes understands what ls said  when it Is least expected. There were  visitors one day at hi3 laboratory, to  whom, as usual, he . was polite, although -busy, and., he patiently answered many questions unnecessarily  shouted at him. Finally, one of the  visitors,. the humorist of the party,  said to another: "I bet he'd hear If  we ask hiin to have a drink." "Yes,"  said" Edison, looking directly at th��  man and smiling, "I would; 'but no,  thank you, not to-day."  The late Lord Dulterin was fond of  relating an amusing experience, which  occurred when he was returning to  Ireland from a diplomatic mission to  ���be'married, and his engagement to the  'beautiful Miss Hamilton had Just been  announced. He landed one evening on  the platform of a small country station near Clandeboye, and hired a  driver, to tak* him the fou. or five  miles, but he was so muffled up that  the driver 'failed to recognize him.  Presently Lord Du(Tetin aske^: "Any  news about here?" "No news,"  grumpily replied the man, "except that  the beautiful Miss Hamilton ls goin*  to marry that ugly fellow. Dufferin!"  John Townsend Trowbridge, one of  the few surviving Intimates of Walt  Whitman, relates these anecdotes In hia  "Reminiscences" of the ��� "good, -gray-  poet" in the "Atlantic Monthly":  "When, at dinner, preparing my dish  ot salad, I remarked that I was employed as1 his critics would be when  his new edition was out, he queried,  'Devouring Leaves of Grass?' 'No,' I  said, 'cutting up Leaves of Grass*���  which amused him more, I fancy, than  the oitt'ug up aii which came later. As  the r.ftei noon waned, and he spoke of  leaving us, somebody placed a hook  before the face of the clock. I said:  'Put Leaves of Gras3 there. Nobody  can see through that.' 'Not even tha  author?' he said, with a whimsical lifting of thu browd.  SMOKE  THE   CELEBRATED  BRIAR  PIPES.  co  UJ  Q.  <  CO  a  z  a  <  _j  ~J.  Id  I  h-  Ll.  Q  ui  _��  O  CO  W.
