EDITORIAL COMMENT,  A RECENT order of the Bank off   Monti  hae fixed the minimum salary on which  employees off the bank may m*rry at $1500 a  year.  Iff a similar rule governed the school teachers  of British Colombia, there are only two���the  principals off Victoria and Vancouver High  Schools���who would be eligible.  Now it is not disputed for a moment that  hmdling bills and couuting column* off figures require far more learning and ability  than the education and discipline off children;  but is the disparity off requirement so great  as the differences in the reward indicates ?  The average salary even of male teachers  only in British Columbia is not half of $1500  a year. An accountant or book-keeper or a  salesman in any store would laugh at such a  salary as teachers receive, a; miner or other  laborer would go on strike immediately iff  offered the same reward.  In ail ages teachers have been poorly rewarded. Juvenal recorded the schoolmaster's  complaint nearly two thousand years ago;  but. until the last fiffty yearn on this continent, they have never been the worst paid members off the whole community.  Off late there has been some agitation among  the teachers off the province ffor concerted action  to secure a more nearly adequate reward ffor  their work, but the idea is repugnant to the  better class of teachers. Men who have  imbibed the learning and philosophy of the  past have at the same time acquired something  off the distaste of their predecessors fur the  sordid and narrowing details of commerce  and industry. Pride and modesty alike preclude any haggling with their patrons, the  public, as to the money value of their services.  Formerly the barrister, teacher, physician  and priest received no set reward, but were  paid by their clients according to ihe clients'  views of tbe value off their services.  Bince then the professions of law  and       medicine      have      organized        and  protected themselves, and in British Columbia are allowed by government to regulate  admission to their membership and to fix their  owjn fee?.  . '���'  But' education is a matter of such vital public interest that the government retains control bf it, decides who shall be admitted to  teach and virtually fixes the salaries (ail the  cities pay slightly higher salaries than those  paid by the government).  And what is the result ?  Teachers receive nearly two-thirds as much  for th����ir work as scavengers and pound-keepers  are paid ffor theirs. No teacher in the province  receives anything approaching the salary of a  city clerk or tax collector.  Less than a year ago an alderman of Vancouver, in criticizing the extravagant expenditure of that city on its schools, protested  that the average salary paid t�� teachers was  nearly as great as that paid to policemen and  firemen.  If the worth of an article to the purchaser  is measured by the price it comands, it is very  evident that, in the language of the stock  exchange, there ie a much weaker demand for  knowledge than for any othec article on the  market in British Columbia.  Thk recent examinations held here by the  Education Department have given us an  opportunity of comparing our school and  scholars with tho-e of the other cities of the  province. For many y**ars the only High  Schools in the province were those off the four  coast cities, the courses off study depending on  the aims off the pupils. But two years ago the  courses were remodelled on the lines of the  matriculation . requirements of Canadian  universities;  three  new   High   Schools  have  p. . o  since been opened;and it is now possible for  the public who support them to obtain an  intelligent idea off the work they are doing.  The course extends over five years with  examinations at the end of each year except  the first; thus twotyears after entrance a pupil  whose attendance has been regular and work  diligent is assumed to be prepared for the  Junior Examination, which when supplemented by a course tn the Normal School  qualifies for a Junior teacher's certificate.  This year the two latent organized schools,  Rossland and Vernon, had no candidates, but  Nelson, althou h in operation for only a year  and.a-half, entered the lists against the High  Schools off older cities. The result is very  creditable to the Nebon pupils and very  encouraging for the future of the school.  Although a third of Nelson's candidates have  attended   only one year  instead of   two, th��  n      if  '       '      i\      y      ',    '     '���     ,   ' Yy,      v  '*<�� p ��'��� p." h, ;,_..,���     I    t     '   ' ' ������   11, ��� x  percentage of successful pupils i@ higher than  that of any school in the province e^cep  Vancouver, whose staff of eight specialists  gives it a decided advantage ��ve? any rival.  Therefore the boys and girls of Nelson who  have succeeded are entitled to very great credit,  while those less fortunate have nothing to be  ashamed of in their failure.  Col. Prior, Minister of Mines, must not mistake the hospitality of Kootenay people for  evidence that  they are in  any  way satisfied  with  his Government.     Perhaps it w��uld be;  better if all our people would be frank with  the C>1. and tell him exactly  the estimation  in which his Government is held in the upper  country, but Western people are always afraid  that their  frankness    may   ba   mistaken   for  lack off hospitality.    However, we imagine;ih��;  Col. has  seen enough  and   heard enough to  convince him   that  about  the only  wayitKC  Government can -appreciate the merits of the  situation is to quietly  step  down  and out off  the political arena.       There is no use iiayingc  the Government has exhausted its opportunities for fnrthur  exercise  and  display of  its  incapacity.     British Columbia   has  the natural resources to yet become the greatest mining country in  the   world, and   when we rid  ourselves of the horrible  nightmare that  has  disturbed    our   peace    for    the   last    three  years   in   the    shape   of  the   most    incapable Legislature that ever undertook the ruin  of any  country we can   all look forward to a  long season of undisturbed quiet and complete  prosperity.  *->  'Q A'  , y f  'aW^I  �� y <H  ��� Vi  :z;>  Col. Prior has declined to express himself  on the lead question. This is really too bad.  Wonder if the Col. has ever given this lead  question any consideration ?  it* j  W. A. Galliher, M. P., has returned to  Nelson, Since the close off the session Mr.  Galliher hae been visiting his old home in  County Bruce. Mr. Galliher has great hopes  the Government will take action on the lead  question next session. Something might have  been done this year had it not been the GoV  ernmenthad decided before the meeting of the  Hou&e to in no way take up tariff questions.

This  trable condition of affairs has been brought  Ftfut by the work of  an   energetic  secretary  |>:knowsfhow to   advertise.    As a point of  lltifest for tourists Nelson far    urpasses Vic-  illMa, or anv other citv  in   the   Dominion for  matter.    Here there are   fi-hing,   shoot-  H scenery, and everything that goee. to make  flmrisfs paradise.    As a visitor to the city,  Sflw years ago, remarked, in   the vicinity of  .fffgson there is more charming scenery   than  t   which   delighis   the   traveller    through  jfltzeriand, or any  other   place   in   Europe.  Ay %\ ~ "  '['-Respect of being a delightful resort for tour  It, Nelson   stands   unequalled   and   unsur-  ";p     ���  Klisedby any place in the world.   Here there  'i if '��r "  f!|lso a tourist association, but no one seems  ii&ned to disclose its movements at the ores-  ^ijftinle."  ft' may be   that   the association is  Mking out some l^ng-headed scheme to at-  ������^s��t the tourist. If such is the case the secret  been ca'Fefully  guarded.    1   vvill   refrain  * ii T*  . n fa  blame for this lack of interest, but the local  tourist association'may have some difficulty  in acquitting itself a 1 together of responsihil-  ity for this condition of affair-. However, as  I before intimated, I have no desire to critciz ���  the association too harshly, and will refrain  from saying more, unless - it develops ihat  its sins of ommission have been too great to  be overlooked.  I am naturally fond of children, and a  growing boy is an-object of sustained interest ; hut. the iuterest is not always  pleasure, and the result is often a  painful foreboding. The boy who is  fond-of physical exercise, who is loud among  his playmates, and perhaps a' little careless of  his personal appearance, but shy before his  elders, diffi.lent about his own knowledge end  opinions and anxious to learn, will develop  into a manly man and useful citizen. But  th - ���twentieth century boy se* ms a new product of evulu ion wiih a name of unknown  derivation���-Hooligan. His best kn����wn characteristics are contempt for his elders, perfect  self-possession and self-satisfaction, a tendency  to destroy and steal and a righteous indignation at any assertion of authority over him.  lis chief ebullitions in Nelson so far have  been the damming'of the Stanley street sewer,  the stealing of skatts from the rink and ihe  breaking of windows in vacant buildings, but  an even more odious form is the general use  of slang copied from the lowest class of Amen-  }yf with the coward's consciousness that it  cannot strike back. A few arrests of this  class of criminals would have a wholesome ef-  feet, and this deterrent medicine can be easily-  applied if those who are compelled to witness  these outrages will simply follow their natural impulses to give the offenders into the  hands of the law.  discussing the Nelson association until 1   I  can farce comedies.  5fRe fully investigi ed it- methods, but I will  Klthis, that if it has permitted the   summer  ,, kPj t .i  ; pass without anything being clone, it   were  : :;er it had never been born, and the citizens  p.', i i  kelson should at once   be   informed   of all  . 'circumstances connected  with... its failure  ; 3W days ago a gentleman of this   city .was  ! iirning from a business visit to an   eastern  ! 'ail    The train on   which   he   travelled    to  i/el stoke   was compo-ed    of   several    cars  tvyhich there  were   between   two   and  three  iiidred tourists.    He   interviewed   many   of  ii ������  ., <_..  L'  11  *> *?.  i 1  \ v''  i$ travellers and wasamaze<l to find that not  : of them had ever heard of the beauties of  son.    As two of the cars were held over at  ^/elstoke, he thought be would take   a   look  j!;ough the waiting-room at the depot and get  fie literature bearing upon the   advantages  line Kootenay metropolis as a tourist reMirt.  f was surprised to find that there was noth-  of the kind in   or around   the  depot.

The arrest of a few persons  found, fl tgrantly guilty of . one of these two  most common forms of public offence is sorely  needed. There i< no way of convincing the  criminal class of the existence of.'law at all  comparable with ��he Kindergarten method of  showinu them the law in operation The  filthy-minded ruffian who pollutes' the air at  the street corner probably fancies that there  H no law in the land to protect the .passer-by  from his deliberate and oft-time* cruel ruffianism..''-His own arrest, conviction, and stern  punishment would quickly convince him of  his error, and not only that, oi course, for the  enforcement of the Jfaw aga.nst one offender  would serve as an object lesson to a whole  host of others. The need of taking a little  trouble arid expense in this matter'can not Ire  doubtful to most citizens. One need not be  much'on the street to see too frequently cases  of the most maddening cruelty to dumb  beasts, especially that patient sufferer, the  horse. In no other way, perhaps, is the spirit  of the coward so often shown in public. A  horse naturally becomes frightened at some  new terror it does n->t understand -iike a fire-  spitting    trolley    car when    the  brute    who  drives it seeks to reassure the timid animal by  lashing it with a whip. Or the hor.-e may  misunderstand some stupid direction given to  it by himself, when he again strikes it vicious-  The announcement that James   Wilks   has  threatened    to   go   to   "work   will  bring   the  uncertainties of fortune home to us all.    Even  atthe  short   distance  of   one   year ago, who  would have   dared   to  hazard the  suggestion  that   the   time would   come  when   even   my  f iend Wilkes would  have   to  cast   aside   hii*  immaculate white shirt, pique vest   and shepherd plaid trousers, and get down to work like  the common herd.    For the   last  three  years  Jim has been regarded more or*less   a   leader  of fashion in Nelson, as was   Beau   Brummell  in London in the good old days when   George  the Third was King.    And to think of it now,  Jimmy    actually   ihreatens   to   go   to   work.  Theieisa lesson'in  all this which J. Pierpont  Morgan and other   capitalists   cannot well afford to overlook.    Tnetr turn mav come next.  In some quarters it is feared that Walks' sudden and unprovoked threat tp go to  work,  if  carried into effect may result in   a   congested  labor market, but 1   rattier think   that at the  present staue of the   question  this   alarm   is  scarcely   justified, inasmuch as he has not yet  made manifest the conditions under  which he  propo-es to engage in  manual  labor  and   the;  compensation in the   way   of sordid  gain  be  will demand  for his toil. Moreover, the greatest of British statesmen, notably  Disraeli and  Gladstone, have been known to  change   their  minds   on   questions   affecting future  of the  nation.   Why not Jimmy VViIkes ?  The Jap<irie.se are   rapidly   coming   to. the  front in everything that pertains   to  civilization.    Very few countries in recent years have  made    the    same    progress   as   Japan.      In  everything thatgives evidence of scientific and  artistic development the.J.ip tuerc are apt 'pupils.    Incidental   to   development along these  lines, the Japs are   creating   a    literature   of  their own, which though  distinctly   national  in tone cannot be said to be provincial in   its  character.    Strange as   it   may  seem,  humor  constitutes it very considerable portion of this  literature.     As cartoonists the Japs   have  no  superiors.    An .enterprising   firm   of  Tokyo  pi inters are now issuing a cartoon paper that  in many respects is equal to the   most   entertaining of the humorous illustrated papers published in the world.    A   friend of  mino,   now  living in Tokyo, bus kindly forwarded   mo   a  few copies of this publication, which  is   interesting on more than one account.    The copies  before me contain half-a-dozon  or so   exceed*  ingly  ludicrous cartoons   ol'  members   of the  iiritish Columbia Legislature.    In fact the artist seems to devote   the  most  of   his spaco to  caricaturing    British    Columbia     statesmen,  .. t  H'll  Mi  f  V  -tf*rt,*jt ���*i, wy , * H  m ,, v��, t -v j ^y^ v-��^^ ^^��^y^ ift^^h^p^^i^^^*,^^ mihw( ^^  ^^^tp^j��*%i*>.'wi.vTt^ij*jM^r^tto**^��S *.    ���?*  ~-U*n^w��, b_ 1,  _ iiw��Ki--n����imo=k^H,j�� ni  :   ���jP-WJii' "���'^f-ippiP'fT"-  rrt^lTOMfeU iw^-JI  .-t��.<r-l,, -j etrgtt   *,    -PKaSjBISf-ittU^A^Jtn^,    Ij,. . ,  r  F  THE NELSON ECONOMIST  5  r,��  This shows that British Columbia is gaining  fame abroad as well as at home, but most people will shudder when they begin to realize  that this Province has fallen so low as to have  its legislators and acts of Parliament ridiculed by a semi-civilized nation like Japan.  Well may it be asked, whither are we drifting? The artist, it appears, spent three of  the early months of the year in Canada, and  journeyed as far east as Montreal.  The announcement that the British officers  do not like the colonials who have been gazetted into the regiments of the former will  come as a severe shock to colonials who are so  anxious to rub their shoulders against British  officers,  Just what part Col. Prior took in   the  settlement of the Fernie strike seems  rather dif-  Q,       I- ,     ��� ' 'XI  ��� -������    ���     ��� ���-������':���'..  ficult to determine. On the day the settlement took place Col. Prior telegraphed the  Minister of Finance as follows : '��� Coal company and miners just now signed an agreement in my presence declaring strike off.  Men go to work immediately." This telegram  was taken by the public to mean that the  Minister of Mines had been chiefly instrumental in settling the dispute. In fact, so  satisfied was the Victoria Colonist this was  really the case that it indignantly remarked :  ** We presume that political animosity will  take occasion to say that Colonel Prior did  not bring the parties to the dispute together.  But the people of the Province w��ll not ne  slow to give him credit for having greatly  assisted, both by the weight of his office, and  the common sense which distinguishes him as  a man, in bringing about so satisfactory a solution of a very serious difficulty.    .  For this fortunate release, Col, Prior is entitled to a great deal of  credit. During all his public career he has  retained the support and admiration of working men, because he betrays a true sympathy  with them, coupled with sincerity and fearlessness. We have no doubt that the miners  at Fernie were delighted lo discover the kind  of a man the Minister of Mines actually is, although those who know him well could have  no doubt that if any man could intervene in a  labor dispute with beneficial results, he was  the man to do it."  What rot! Thk Economist cannot say if it  was political animosity, but it must admit  that the announcement that Col. Prior had  anything to do with the settlement of *he strike  was regarded up here as nothing more than a  piece of cheap advertising on the part of the  Colonel his few admirers and the hirelings of  the press. The miners themselves are so very  indignant that anyone should assume that  Col. Prior was in anyway instrumental in  settling tho strike that they have caused the  following statement to be made public : "The  report that Colonel Prior, Minister of Mines,  was instrumental in bringing the strike to a  close ie not correct. Negotiations were in progress for over 24 hours   before his   arrival   in  town. The president of the miners* union and  the members of the executive say positively  that CoL Prior had nothing'to do with the  settlement, in fact that he never even  had a consultauon with them. He  came to town on Saturday evening, and had a  consultation with General Manager Tonkin,  but ignored the men entirely."  It will be seen from the foregoing that the  preposterous claim on the part of Col. Prior  and his friei ds that the former is entitled to  credit for the settlement of the Fernie strike is  simply apiece of fake advertising, perhaps a  little more transparent and impudent than the  methods by which quack doctors usually  bring themselves into notice. As yet the miners have not manifested a visible sign that  they are ** delighted to discover the kind of  a man the Minister of Mines actually is." It  does not necessarily follow, however,, that  they have not made a discovery. Indeed, the  statement quoted above would seem to indicate that they have -take** the exact dimensions of the valorous warrior, whose capacity  for " redressing grievances " is about on a par  with that of Don Quixote. Col. Prioi should  not have attempfed to repeat the Haroua-al-  Raschid act in this intensely practical age.

The following letter speaks for itself :  Victoria, July 30,1902.  To the Editor of The Nelson Economist.  Dear Sir.���If you send us down 30 more copies of The Economist in future we can sell them.  The article on "Old Tulip" is posted on our bulletin board and has created no end of fun and  comment.  Business fairly good.   Streets torn  up for block  pav 1 ng.   Weather out of sight.'   Tourists are more  numerous than ever.    The association seems to be_  doing good work.   There should be branches in  every city In B. C.   Yours truly,  Campbell & Cullin,  .'..;.' Per C. L. Cullin.  Campbell & Cullin are the well-known to-  bacconiftB and newsdealers of Victoria. They  carryall the local papers and the leading  U. S. publications.  Western people have a habit of thinking  that it is only in the the west where enterprise  can be found. Most of u* who have lived  many years in the west are apt to believe that  nothing great can be done in the east, especi  ally in the way of building up rapidly and at  the same time sub-tantially. A writer in one  of the magazines shows that this idea is wrong.  This writer, a   Mr M ox ham, points   out   that  rt\  two years ago Sydney, C B;, was a quiet little  town of  about  three thousand    mhahitante*  To-day it has over ten thousand, and is rapidly growing.    It has, so far, passed   through  its sudden awakening with credit.    Over 1500  houses have been built���a large proportion of  the belter  class;  many   miles of sewer and  water have been put  down; fire enfiines have  been   purchased^ #s$l  streets   improved  and  macadamised.   All that is done is done well,  and, what  is uaore* it is done honestly.     The  town developments are along more ambitious  hues  than   generally   apply    in   the  States.  British permanency and American speed have  been crossed, and with good effect.  **It has been an interesting study," concludes Mr. Moxham, "to note the reception  by the local inhabitants oi the many newcomers. Sydney is an old town,���& community of sturdy independence, of long settled  habits, and of intense, perhaps slightly fan*  atical religious convictions. It has been suddenly invaded by the noadescript crowd that  always accompanies the quick building of a  steel plant,--a crowd in great part aliens.  Sunday quiet that had been sacred in its  observance has been violated, prohibition itfafc  had hitherto been real, at least 8003^what  changed; peace and comfort turned ilito work vjj��^  and tut moil. Such was Sydney's trial. They  have met it well. In a broad-guaged, manly  way they are studying how to  adopt.the past  to the present; trying to hold on to what is good  * ���        * . ��� ������'  '   ��� * ��� *    ������,  and  right by weeding* out what io useless  of  the pa��t, out with ati intebi not to let the  present run into license.

McADAMS RELEASED  'pHE case of VVm. McAdams. who was found  guilty  of contempt of   court,   has   finally been settled, the defendant having made  an apology, and   the court releasing   him   on  condition that the apology be published in full  in   the  Paystreak of   August 9, and a copy   of  the same filed in the court.  ���    Wm. McAdams  was brought from  the provincial goal into the Fu'l court by Supi. Hussey.     The court consisted of the Chief Justice  and   Mr. Justice   Drake, Mr. Justice Walkem  being indisposed, and   the deputy   attorney-'  general, Mr. McLean, appeared for the Crown,  and Mr. Wootton repre?ented Mr. MePhiilip/  attorney for McAdams.  The deputy  attorney-general   opened    the  proceedings by addressiug ,he court. He said: ��� i  "Your Lordships will remember that a short   I  time ago Wm. McAdams   was brought before  I  you charged with a  gross  contempt   of court   '  contained in an article published in the Sandon Paystreak  of.  the  17th  of  May last,   ju  which   he not only   interfered  with   the due  administration of  justice by  Peking to   prejudice a cause then before the courts as far as  the  defendant of  that cause   was  concerned  but also  made an   unjustifiable   attack   upon  the  members of  the Supreme Curt bench of .  British   Columbia.      When   he   was   br���ught   j  befoie you, the accused made a quasi apology ''I  .   which was not satisfactory to your Lordships   '  and you therefore sentenced him   to a ten,, of  imprisonment   in the common  goal.     Since  then McAdams has signed a  written   apology  to the  court  in  regard   to  the   matter  ,om-  plained   of, and his   compel, Mr. McPhillip*  who is   represented  here  by Mr. Wooton, has"  undertaken   to  see that   the apology is  f-.lly  printed in the Sandon Poyslreak.    . he apology is as follows : ..  "The only motive present to my   mind   in  ���riling the article was what, I conceived to be  the interest of the public.      I wrote it on   the  impulse of  the moment.     j��� doing so 1 used  language referring to the court in terms which  were intemperate, and improper, and  void   jf   j  therespect due to their Lordships' persons and  office.      lhe expressions were not deliberately  intended to bring discredit on   the bench, but  were^the outcome of very strong   feelings.    I  deeply   regret  the  publication  of  the article  and the  inexcusable and   insulting   language  in    which   I  referred   to  the   judges  of    the  Supreme Court, and   herewith  withdraw   and  apologize for the same."  Mr. McPhillipV undertaking is as follows ���  - I hereby undertake that the written a���ol-  ORyofVVm. McAdams for thearticlein question which appeared iu tbe Sandon Puyatreak  of May 17th shall be duly published in the  issue of the Puyatreak of August 9, 1902, and  that a copy of the same will be duly filed in  the courts with the r,,Jord�� 0f lh�� case."  feigned, A. I.. Mc Phi I lips.  "Under these circumstances 1 shall move  if  your Lordships   deem ibia adequate,  that, the   |  accused be discharged   from   custodi   on con  X  i  I dition that the terms of the apology are carried out. I am inclined to think that Mr.  McAdams now recognizes that he acted  wrongly in trying to prejudice a   person   vvho  ,. had a case before  the court   and in trj'ing   to  j  scandalize tne judges."   .  J "Mr. Wootton said   that he represented Mr.  I McPbillips.     He  did   not think   the  release  j should   he.conditional, but   that it should be  I an unconditional discharge.  j       The Chief Justice  said : f* The   Court   has  I   agreed that the release 'will be conditional ��<n  |   the apology being published in the Paystreak*  \   otherwise   the    prisoner   will   be   re-arrested.   :  !   This case seems to have attracted considerable  |   attention and there seem8 to become doubt as   ;  I   to how far   newspapers can go   in   criticising  1   the   Court.      Io   the  case of   Regina v. Gray. I  ;   (Law   Reports, 2   Queen'?*    Bench     Division,  1900) Lord Russell, of  Kiliovten, makes some   .  remarks which apply very clearly to this case.  His   Lordship    said :   "Any act done or *vri>*  ing published calculated to   bring a  court   or  jud^e of tbe  courts into  contempt or to lower  ,  his authontj', is contempt of  court.    That h  one   class   of   contempt.      Further, any   act  done   or    writing    published    calculated    to  obstruct   or interfere with   the   due course of  justice or   the lawful   process of   the courts is  contempt of court.     The  former clans belongs  to the category  which Lord Hardwicke, L. C,  characterized as scandalizing a   judge.    That  description of  that class of   contempt is to be  taken subject to one and an  important quali-  j   fication.    Judges and courts are alike open to  !  criticism, and   if   a   reasonable  argument   or  .   expostu'ation is   offered   against any  judicial  act   as  contrary   to   law   or   public   good, iio  court could or would treat that as contempt of  court.    The law ought   to be   astute  in such  cases tocriticiseadversely, whether under such  circumstances    and     with    such    an    'object  is published, but it is to be remembered that  in this matter the liberty   of  the press   is   no  greater or nc   less than   the liberty   of every  subject of   the Queen.     Now, as I have said  no one has suggested that this is notcoi. tern pi  of court, and   nobody has  suggested, or could  suggest, that this falls within the right of public criticism .in-the sense-I have described.     It  i��  not   criticism; I repeat   that it   is personal  scurrilous  abuse of a judge as a judge.    We  have therefore to deal with it as a case of contempt, and we have to deal with it bren manu.  This is not a new  fangled jurisdiction; it is a  jurisdiction   as   old as the common law itself,  of which are admirably  treated in the opinion  of Wilrnot, J.    It is a jurisdiction, however,  to be exercised with care, to be exercised only  when the case is clear and   beyond reasonable  doubt, because if it   is not a case beyond reasonable doubt,  the courts   will and   ought   to  leave    the    Attorney-General   to   proceed   by  criminal   information.       How then are we  to  deal    with this   matter ?      That it is a serious   !  cane no man can  doubt, nnd I do not hesitate  to say that if it   had not been for  tho conduct  of  Horard Graw since the   publication of  the  article and especially if it had not been for the  aff&davit which he has put   before th�� court  for  its    consideration,  we   should  all   have  thought it our duty to send him to prison for  a considerable period of time. That gentleman  having apologised   and thrown himself  upon  the mercy of tne court* was iiued j��1O0 and ��2o  costs and ordered to be imprisoned until those  sums were paid."  I      "I have noticed som��comments in the news-  papers concerning   the sentence of McAdams  I which kept him in prison until securitiesfwere  j  furnished for his good behavior, but   that sen-  j   teuce was perfectly just and   proper in   order  ��� to enforce his due submission to the court.    I  communicated with the minister of justice in  regard to that, and I have received an answer  that the court   has complete power to do as it  \   pleases in the matter."  Addressing the prisoner, His Lordship eaid;  *'William   McAdams,   you   have   been  found  guilty of   what was one of   the  greatest  contempts of court ever recorded.   I have searched  the record of such cases, aud  I have found no  ei.ie which approaches this.    In such cases as *  this the court mu��l   exercise its jurisdiction,  and   ihe   only   reason the court   will   take  a  lenient course is because die press has not been  checked up in such matters a** it might   have"  heen.     Your ignorance of the decencies of one  man's behavior to another seems to he remarkable.    I have perused these few issues of your  paper which I have here, and I must say that -  a more   disreputable   and atrocious   paper^l  have never seen."  Mr. Justfee Drake concurred in the remark*  of the Chief Justice.  Tn�� prisoner was then ordered released,.and <  the court aojouroed.
