There is an offence committalile  only by membeis of the legal pin-  fession. It c (insists in taking Up n case  on tho understanding that _the lawyer  gets a certain stated rake oil', if his  client wins. IT he loses, he-gets nothing. This kind of, a deal is called  champerty and is illegal. Mr. Martin  wants to legalize it. Why 'nobody  knows, since it is one of the commonest  kind of transactions, whether legal dr  illegal and his learned brethren must  have their knives into a lawyer, prutty  b,id before lie is liable to get  jacked up for it. . But Mi*. Martin wants to legalize it in the  supposed interests of the "'poor miner."  This is-entirelygratuitous. The miner is  quite capable of looking after himself,  thutikynu.' He has .no heed, of going  shares with a lawyer in order to hold  everything that is coming to him,  pel hap*-) 'abit ever. His clilims'ni.iy  not be quite all that the idiotic regulations ofthe Mineral Act call for. He  may not have, in ninety nine cases out  of n hundred us..i mutter of cold fact he  has not, packed several stakes weighing some sixty pounds apiece some five  hiindi ed or a thousand feet or more up  the side of a mountain like the side of a  house, in Order to stake out his location. His .stakes are not up to the  regulation size but then neither are h'is  neighhoi's and theie is a very clear and  definite, though quite unspoken under-  bland ing between them that strict  attention to one's own" business . will  on tlie whole be the most salubrious  course to pursui*.  But if the bona fid������ miner makes' a  sale, we will say, ton company, tfien  it is that it becomes possible for. a  combination of a shyster claimjnmper  ���������ind a chairtperty lawyer to get lheir  fine work in. The claimjnmper  knows all about the property. .He  knows that the stake?, were .nevpr" of  the regulation size. He has known -it  maybe for years but-lie also knew; too  uimh to monkey with it, at long ns Ihe  bona fide piospeetoi* was in possession.

And tlieni  Ihey.Ko whacks on what they can  squeeze nut of the company.  The Herald sees no -particular  advantage likely lo accrue to the  mining industry nf this province from  lemoving even . the meie shadow n|  illec-tlitv. which at present bangs over  .���������my such ttansac'tion as that outlined  above. Tl' onr legislators are -ho  desperately anxious to tinker with Ihe  l.iivs affecting mining, tbey-had fur  better be employed, in tediioing the  regulations with regnid to staking out  claims to something within the actual  possibilities of , the circumstances  siu rounding the' piospector when  engiured in locating his property, than  in'holdingout inducements to cl.tini-  jumpors and low grade lawyers to get  a squeeze on capital. ��������� rhip "poor  miiiei'" business is pine nonsense. The  best course for-' everv miner and  prospector in Kootenav which the  local Jegislatuie could pursue would be  to cease this everlasting tinkerinar  with the laws goyei ning mining in this  province and by so doing to give tbe  industry that security and stability,  which vcill give confidence to capital  to come in and /take hold of the  development of the mineral resources'  of the province.*.* It is this gallery play,  this sanctimonious snuffling about the  poor .miner, this constant posing with  one eye on thp labor vote, which, has  dcmaiHnd_is-doing_niorp-to injure the  prospects of mining in , this province  that every othei'adverse circumstance  with which it has had to contend since  its inception and"- Ihey have heen  numeron������ and serious pnoiiKh.goodnesa  knows.1- Ifcis this kind of hypocritical  folly coupled with the notion that. ,the  industry is peeuliaily a fair object for  taxation to the limit that has converted the fair weather pi ospects with  which .mining receiveil, its*start in  Kootenay,** few yearsago into;its present condition of gloomanduncertainty.  Big Deposits on the Alberta Side of the  Crow's Nest Pass.  From intormiition nl" an authoritative nature says Mining, published nt  Spokane we ars now able to announce  that, exteiibive coal measures have  been discoveied about forty miles eas*t  of Fernie, near the Crow's Nest Pass  railway, at, Blairmore, in Alberta, and  that a syndicate composed ,of T. is.  Procter, Randolph E. Fis-hhiirn and V.  llydo Baker have secured several  thousand ucies of the best nf this land.  The last named gentleman is the son  of Col. James Baker, formerly minister  of mines for Biitish Coliimliia. who,  with his son, owned it large portion ot  The Cat and the Hat Pin.  Much has been written of late about  the manifold uses of the common or  garden hat pin under llio delicate,  manipulation of the fni" hands of the  gentle iox. It remained for Mr. It,  Gordon's family cat to put a further  test on its capabilities. The piisscnc in  question has ,'always manifested a  strange partiality for hat pins. A  favorite form of amusement with it  wiis to climb up on llio bureau and  nibble ut the heads of the hat pins in  the pin cushion. Wednesday last it  throw a fit. .

If  our faith is justified by event* we shall  not be backward in .still further  extending our plant, in order to keep  f ally abreast witn the times. Our aim  is to make the Hkraldh standing and  ci editable advertisement of Revelstoke  to thi-o'utside woild. which judges of  it place very largely by the looks of its  newspaper. Wo believe that we have  heen successful in our efforts in this  direction up to date and intend to  spare no efforts to keep the record up  to" the'name-high etatn3ard -ju _the  future. "    ���������  Mr, Baker has known ol these immense coal uicasuies at ttlaiimore lor  some years, and it was llirough him  that the attention of the oilier gentlemen was duected to the fit Id.  GEOt.OGY OF TIIK  DlfiTltlCT  The coal measures are said to occur in  a basin on the east side of Crow's Nesj  mountains���������as this partof the Rocky  Mountains lias come lo be known  locally. It is said that the underlying  formation is limestone wliich in turn  rests uni-onfoi-iuaiily against the older  woks which rise from lhe central portion of these mountains, and which  may by their elevation have bioken  through an immense coal, basin which  at one time may have comprised both"  tlie Crow's Nest and Blairnlore fields..  Tl'e oc-ciiri ence of sandstone ui.d shules  separate the numerous seams which  vary from a. determined thickness ot  3) feet down to 4 teet. 'A belt of conglomerate overlying one of the highest  nt these seams ot coal traverses the  countiy contormably with the formation uii'l is traceable for several miles.  The general strike of the coal seams is (  ueaily north and south, with if. dip to  tlie west of at fiom 55 to 00 degiees ns  determined by. it limited observation.  The root of the seams is shales, strong  and tough, and though .somewhat  broken atsutface, show tiy the meagre  development to be less disturbed below.  The lloor is usually sandstone,- where  exposed and it is probable the rule* as  oliserved will hold, good throughout  Ibeaiea. These co.tl* measures ure  undoubtedly of Cretaceous age.  ���������      * DEyKLOp-lfENT  The development consols, of "severa.  trenches or open cuts across the outcrops of the veins or seams and'thi-et  tunnels just st.tt ted tojprove llie'seaui--.  at gi eater depth.       ..      ,*.,.',"������������������  Tunnel No. 1 is being riin trf strike  the iu,iI at au elevation above-tbe  uvei ot nUO feet, and will no doubt be  continued tin several bundled feet and  ciosscuts be run to cut oilier known  seams at depth.'- -i ���������'��������� ���������  T.mnel Nu. 2 is at .in'.elevation about  150 leet higher anil to the west ot No. 1.  i'his will be continue".! for several  hundred feet, then connected wilh No.  1 by an incline to the i-i-n-.it ut.  iii addition to these tunnel-, .t trnss-  cui, tunnel has been started some 700  feet higher than N". :. tunnel, which vs  being driven lo lhe weft lo entail the  exposed seaiii-s al lhis point. Tins al  present constitutes all the woik laid  out, but as development proceeds and  c iiise ,111 ise.-i for it. upenings will be  made.' It is the' intention, of li.e  syndicate to piove the ground as to  quantity of coal and its quality.  Parties who have gone over the  ground recently are not disposed to  make anv detinue estimaies,as ihey say  development would . not, justify lliem.  but it is generally admitted that the  showing and cbaincterislics of the coal  seams justify laige expendituics in  development,-  , The coal isvery firm and free from  grit or stone.���������bone, as the miners call  it���������and signs of t-tnlts are rai e indeed.  One exposure shows a seam of clean  co.tl, 30 feet thick, another seam over  30 feet tnnk is exposed, and otheis  down to four feet are shown by c inland exposures. We have not "been  able tosee analyses of these coals, 'but  have been assured upon reliable  authority tlfat'from-50 to 70 per cent  of carbon is piesent; with from 22 to 23  per cent ot volatile matter, and from  less than 5 to nearly 20. per'cent of  ash." Some ot the seams produce 'a  superior grade of coking coal, while  others aie non-coking but excellent  for steam purposes. ���������"  Transportation ot the best may be  afforded by, building a halfmile spur  from the Crow's Nest'railway ai Blairmore, froin.which point an easy grade  may be obtained. , y  The market for the product of 'these  colleries is excellent in the province of  Albeitn, British Columbia, and in- the  United States. There is demand in  the markets already afforded for  millions of tons additional coal  annually, and the smelting plants of  British - Columbia will hail with  gratitude this new source for coke  supply.  "Predictions as.to tho future of thei-e  Blairmore ro.il fields cannot be made  with any degree of accuracy, but it'  ordinary conditions prevail .they  promise to become' an important  source of supply. Unlike ore, the  product ,of the collieries cannot be  reduced on the grounds except inlo  coke wheie the proper class of coal  exists, but piovidea large* tonnage for  railroads; therefore we may expect to  see some active lailroad building into  tlie field at an ear.ly date; in.fact, it is  positively asserted thut - the . Great  Northern is planning an early in vtisiuu  of the territory with a view of providing themselves, and their patrons in  Jlontan.i and adjacent states with an  abundant supply of coal of a.-supeiior  quality.  noticed that the cat since refused all  food and seemed, kind of .squirmy if  anyone nffeied to touch'it. .On Monday morning one of '.lie children  discovered'sticking out behind the  animal's shoulder what he,took to be a  porcupine quill. On iuve'stigation it  was discovered to be the poitif of a pin.  Thisbeemed interesting and Mr. Gordon undertook its extraction, with the  result that a black hut pin four and a'  half-inches'long with the,iisii.il knob  on the end was taken out of the cat,  which had apparently swnlIo\ve.d the  pin, knob first on* Wednesday of liist  week and had been packing it round  ever, since, fiio ,bleeding ensued,  though .the knob naturally made quite  a wound, wheie it came out.

The "Manitoba     railway    deal   has  W&cttcallr been ratified by tho legislature of the -province, a partisan ma-  Jdrty has won. the dW and the consequences which  are bound to ensue  to the province are almost appalling.  Tie  government   assumes, liabilities  that will  eat up' almost'   the. whole  ���������revenue o������ the province'.   The liabilities are secondary lt Is true and tho  government will only bo called upon  to pay  them if Mackenzo & Mann's  road  cannot pay    the  rental  to  the  BCorthern  Pacific   and   their  own   Interest on bonds out oi tho earnings of  tbelr lines after all expenses of operation have boon paid.    It is .doubtful  if Mackenzie & Mann's company can  wen pay operating expenses in view  oC the fact that last year the linos of  tbs Northern Pacific company In Manitoba, managed by some of the ablest  financiers ia tho world, were operated  at a loss of nearly ?200,000.  The Manitoba government apparently think that Mackenzie & Mann  can achieve irnat the Northern Pacific with all the trunk facilities failed, to do, and 'earn aobut SGOO.000 per  xanum in addition. ,  Shortly after assuming office Mr.  aobln aserted that the province of  Manitoba was very hard up for  money , that there was not sufficient resources available for current  expenses and now without tho slight-  ���������est amelioration of conditions then  existing, we find him assuming liabilities that will oat up nearly every  cent of the annual revenue of the  province.  The deal is the most scandalous in  the history of the Dominion, as the  people of Manitoba will yet And out  to their cost. It is the outcome of  the acceptance of a principle ^without  paying attention to detail. Its rati-  -"-fijation-in-the- legislature shows up the  worst, sides of hidebound party politics.  Every newspaper that comes to  band tells of some fresh lynching at-  trodty across the line. It.now_.ap-  peara as if the peoplo have so little  faith in the "machinery of the law  that they mete out punishment to  criminals with their own hands.  Lynching, i.s growing in favor and if  not checked ln time will proceeds  apace and It will not l>o long until  the mobs will vent their disfavor oh  other than criminal negrors.  There aro signs that Mrs. Nation  will aoon cease to figure ln bar -oom3  aad the newspapers. Out of the cell  where she is sending the time till  the court which is to try her for her  ongoings shall meet, she issued an  order to her gang -of "home defenders"  toiling them what to do in a local  election contest. The defendenrs have  rcCosed. she denounced them as liars  and devils: and they In turn have  repudiated her. She may have to  go on her next crusade with nolioily  to applaud, which i* probably the  worst punishment a woman of her  Kind could undergo.  In discussing the Crows Nest coeal  fields matter the Fernie, B. C, Free  Press says: Every man in Fernie  is laughing at the scare talk about  coal being drained away by the proposed connection with thc Great  Northern. We have here 250.000 acres,  carrying seams that aggregate 130  feet. Cut it down 200,000 acres with  190 feet of coal seams, and we have  ������0.009,000,000 tons of coal. If we  ssreil our output to 10,000 tons a day,  we will exhaust this supply ia tho  -year of grace 8,500.

The second  of tho Ontario provincial auction sales of registered stock,  under   tho   auspcoa   of   tho   Domnion  Breeders'   association,   was    hold    nt  Ottawa on March 6, says  the Montreal Star.   Thn attendance was not as  largo as at tho Guelph    sale,    thero  being only, fivo or six hundred present,  as  against somo - two thousand  at tho western salo,  but tho gathering was a  thoroughly  representative  one, and included ��������� breeders  not only  from   Ontario   and   Quebec,   but   also  from tho Maritimo provinces, and the  United  States.    Hon,  Sydney Fisher,  and Hon. John Dryden, the dominion  and   provincial  ministers  of   agriculture,   wero   also   in   attendance,    together with several members of parliament, who aro interested in stock.  Tho sale was held in thc carriage  building   at  the   exhibition   grounds,  which   had  been  specially    fitted  up  for tho occasion.   As regards slzo and  accommodation, it suited tha purpoao  vory well, but unfortunately, it was  an extromely cold day, and as thero  was no means of heating the building  those   present   wero   anything    but  comfortable.   With this exception, tha  arrangements wero nil that coald bo  desired  and  tho sale waa  conducted  without a hitch.   George Jackson., of  Port  Perry,  wielded  tho  hamster  to  the satisfaction of all concerned,   and  contributed largely to tho success ofthe sale. ..He was assisted by T. W.  McDermott of Ottawa, and it ia worthy  of remark as showing a desire to encourage these  sales  that  both  gent-  lemont  gave   their    services   ffeo  of  charge  Thn sale was opened by Hon. Sydney Fisher, who expressed his pleasure at the action of the Ontario board  of   agriculture in inaugurating these  sales and predicted  that they *c/ould  speedily result in a marked improvement, in the live stock of the country.  It had been objected to by-some of  thoso  who  had examined  the  cattle  that they  were rather  thin   in  con-  diton.   but   this   Mr.   Fisher  thought  was an advantage, as lt would onabls  the  breeders  better  to judge of  the  quality.     An   interesting    statement  was mado to the minister   in regard  to the tuberculosis test   for animals  going across tho border.    Last week,  he said, he .went to Washington and  secured a modification of 'the regulations existing relating.to the tent of  all   animals    entering    tho    United  States, eo that, in future the _certificate of the Dominion department   of  agriculture 'would   be 'recognized   by  ths Washington, authorities.    If - Americans - present ~ purchased  stock    at  the sale the animals would be tnste'd  fro by tho officials of his department  and the certificate would be honored  at tho frontier.  The salo was    in  several  respects  somewhat of a surprise.    At Guelph.  the demand  was almost entirely  for  Shorthorns;    the dairy breeds were at  a  discount  and -found  but few  purchasers.    This,   of    course,   waa  not  difficult of  explanation.       Guelph  is  tho centre of tho beef raising district  and consequently it was but natural  that dairy cattlo should be somewhat  of a "drug on tlie markot there.    -At  Ottawa it was expected that the Jesuits   would   be   different.     Dairying  is tho principal agriculturel  industry  of the district which thc Ottawa sale  was  Intended  to    serve    and   it waa  thought that there would be no difficulty in disposing of some good dairy  cattle there. Accordingly quite a number of Ayrshlres, together with a few  Holsteins  and Jerseys,  were put up,  hut to tho surprise of all concerned,  the demand for    these    was  by    no  means brisk and the sale, like the one  at   Guelph, was largely a Shorthorn  sale.    This   breed    was  the  xavnrita  and  brought, good    prices  in  almost  every instance, and thero is no doubt  that  double   the  number   could   nave  been-sold had they been of thc same  quality as those disposed of.  Just  why   the   dairy   cattle  should  have been at a discount it,is difficult  to say.   It  is  true  that  as  a-whole  they  wore not In  as  good  condition  as   tho Shorthorns, and that some of  the   Ayrshlres   brought   good   prices,  but on the other hand some went for  less      than    lt  was     expected   the7  would bring. A nine months old Ayrshire'bull  calf  wont  for  $9,   a prlci*  at which  it would  make cheap veal,  as  ono breeders said:     another  bull  $19, a Guernsey bull all tho way from  ______pi_an__ N. .S..  the  p_nly__-one_so!d.  "realized $35: flve Jersey bulls;" wer������"  entered; but only one was sold and  he went for $15: "and three Holsteln  bulls of good breeding brought $22.  ?59 and $37 respectively.  The sale was more, or leas of a  surprise in that the prices 'realized  all round were considerably better  than those at Guelph. This was particularly the case of the Shorthorns  At Guelph the average price was  about $75 for bulla and $95 for fa-  males, whilo at Ottawa tho prices  were $135 and $141 respectively. At  Guelph the highest price secured for  any animal waa,$315. while at Ottawa  the handsome sum of $305 was realized for a Shorthorn bull. The total  ' proceeds ot the Ottawa Kale wi-ro  $5S72. for 68 cattle and ISO!) for Hi  swine, making a grand total of $62BS.  Thirty Shorthorns brought ttllii. an  average of $137.1(5. Thc lowest price  was $55 and tho highest $503. One  Hereford cow in calf went far S10O.  Two wore withdrawn on account of  tho bids not rnaching anywhere like  the price ot tho animal.-;. Thirty-two  Aryshires sold for $1289, or an averaga  for each of $46.81. One Guernsey bull  sold for $35. Three Holstenina brought  $109, or an average of $36. One Jersey went for S15. The -"< swir.o  brought an average of $1C.2*>.  Taken as p. whole the animals were  undoubtedly better than those put up  at Guelph, but. there were some  individual animals ot n������t loo i-.ood  quality. As at Gucipli the buyers  were extremely critical, and if th*3  sales had no other result they would  be of untold valuo as showing that  it is quality that counts every time.  As soon as a fine animal was put up  the bidding was brisk and the price  was ruu up in short order; wh������*n on  the other hand an animal of poor  quality was brought in the bidn were  few and far bptween, and no one  seemed over anxious to Recur'.* If-  Some of those who entered stock  were ooubtles.-. ili-ssatisfied with (his  btatfi of affair:-,, but .is a rule both  buveis and sellers were well pleased  anil it is -'-���������.'lfe to say that tlio nils  V.-.T-; oa the whole ;i pronounced f-xie-  csrs.  The Shorthorns, as has bean said,  brought good prices. Twenty bulls  sold for $2,715, an average of $135 or  SCO better than the average at Guelph.  The highest price paid was $505  which was given by tha Prince Edward Island go-ernmeat for Triumph,  a handsome 16 month* old roan, bred  and contributed by Hon. John Dryden. Triumph "was sired by Revenue,  and belongs Jo tho celebrated Crulek-  shank's Lavender family. Mr. Dryden; it is said, would; havo disposed  of him privately for $350 or $400. and  haa therefore good reason to bo satisfied with the result, of-tko sale. The  Prince Edward Island government  purchased another, handsome well  bred bull, Patrician, for which they  paid $230. Patrician was sired by  Coldstream Lad, 24808, and was. bred  and contributed by Jeffrey Braa..  Whitby. A nico young bull or royal  brooding and of the true boef type,  was-bred by William Ormston. Jr.. o������  Columbus, Ont., was purchased by W.  McGarry. of McGarry," Ont.. for $225.  This bull was slrod -. by Hon.

One of tho few that went  to Quebec was purchased by A. M.  Deschenes. of St. Roques. for $130.  This was a bull of excellent vedlgroa*  tracing back tothe famous Barmpton  and Vice Consul and waa bred by  Orlmston. o������ Columbus. G. H. Tabor,  of Beechgrove, bought a nlco straight  smooth bull for the South Onslow  Farmers' club for $110. Two Shorthorn bulls, whose dams-'are noted  milkers brought $105 each, one going  to Thos. Cox, of Buckingham, and Uio  other to Thos. Little, of Beechbnrg.  Ten females were 60ld at the very-  good average of $141. all of them entered by the same breeder. John  Bright, of Myrtle, Ont. .Seven of  them went to Mr. A. M. Todd, a manufacturer of Kalamaoo, Mich., who" "has  recently gona extensively Into cattle  raising. Thu other three were bought  by Mr. E. B. Elderkln, ot Amherst,  N. 8., who subsequently resold them  to Mr. Todd, a������ that all the 10 females go across tho border. Among  those bid in by Mr. Todd was qooea  Alexandra, a handsome eight months  old roan, for which hn paid $310. Att-  other was Lady Roberta, a nlco 17  months old animal of the fashionable  color, for which he gave $200. Prla-  cess lga, also a red, 17 months old.  cost him $100, and for' an aged  cow of good quality he gave $155.  The other three wore young heifera  from. 12 .to IB months, which he ae-_  cured for $150, $135 and |7S reanec-  tlcoly. Mr. Blderkln's purchases were  all young animals. A nice-roan, 11  months old, was knocked down to  him at $120. and for the'other two he  paid $89 and.$88. .   .     .  , The'Ayrshlres. were- rather a poor  lot.- There were some good onea  among them, but most .of them were  of nothing more than ordinary  quality. Twenty**soven bulls were  sold at prices ranging from $130, to  $9, the average being a trifle over  $40. The one that headed the Hat  was Glenora Daisy King, a handsome  whlto and red 18 montha old of good  pedigree, bred by W. W. OslllTie. Of  Lachine Rapids, Que., and bought by  Mr. W. C. Edwards.' M. P.. of Roek-  land, Ont. A nice white and brown  aged bull bred by Robt. Robertson,  of Compton, Que., and second prize  winner at tho Ottawa exhibition ast  year, went to J. W.. Bogart. Mora-  wood.

Three others  sold at $60 apiece, one brought $18.  five went for $40.each, and with the  exception of two that - wet*e knockpd  down at $9 and $10 respectively, the  others brought' prices running from  $35 to $20.  The cows made a much better  showing. Five of the six "catalogued  were sold for a total of $435, an average of $87. or over twice as much as  the bulls realized. Wm.

The Edmonton Post says:  On Wednesday an old man named  Matwig Gach, from Austrian Galicia,  sat in Mr. Micewitz's music store  weeping. "My friend," he said tn Mr.  Micewltz, "help me. It was all that  I had for all my life. It was tho  savings of my grandfather, my father  and myself. I have a wife and nine  children and this loss leaves mc very  poor. It is not right that we coma  to this country to bo treated so. In  our country the gorernment officers  are hard with their taxes, out they  protect ua. They do not rob us or  allow ua to be robbed. It Is very  hard."  Of what did this   man   complain?  Hern is his story.     He arrived' hero  last June with 1910 guilder ($764) ln  his possesion wishlag to change tha  money he applied to Government Interpreter Wagner and the latter said  that the best thing to bo:done was to  send   the   money  to   Morewitts,  the  banker at   Hamburg.     Mr.   Washer,  being a ' government    official,    Gach  gave him the money wlthoat hesitation.     This waa on the   Sth of Jane  last.     Bear that date ln   mind for it  will lie found'to dovetail with another  presently.     The money was neat off  and Gach     sat down     to wait      A  month'-went' by and no answer. The  Gachs live out    at Beaver lake-and  they anxiously waited the money aa  It was.all they had   ln tho   world.  They began to grow uaeasy and as  Mr. Wagner Bald that   he had heard  nothing, Gaeh's son, wrote   to Morewitts, the'banker at Hamburg, asking  him what had become ot tha money.  Morewitz   answered,   asking     young  Gach to Bend him aU'particulars, of  the transaction, "as ho- had thousands  such on hlB books, and'all tho details  would     make     it clearly traceable.  Young Gach wrote again, tho answer  he' got was that the ' money to   the  value, of 1800 guilder had beenaent  to Matwig Gach, care'of Philip Wagner, Edmonton.     Now,   lt waa   not  understood by'-Gach that the money  was'to  be returned  la  care  of Mr.  Wagner;      He believed    that    Morewitz, the Hamburg banker, would return the money direct to htm. Matwig Gach.     Gach applied to Mr. Wagner for the money, but the latter declared that he not received it. Young  Gach  again  wrote to  Hamburg,  and  Morewitz roplied that' the moner naa  been  sent to Gach, care of Wagner.  at Edmonton, that Mr. Wagner   had  received the letter' as the records of  the post office showed, and he, Morewitz.  advised Gach   .to    notify    the  police and have Mr. Wagner arrested.  Then search  for the    record ot the  letter began.     No trace of any letter  sent to Gach could be found. _*. Then  it struck the searchers jto' look for a  letter adrdosesd to Mr.c Wagner.  On  the 12th of July there was Mr. Wagner's signature . for a    letter. -   Mr.  Wagner was  taxed  with  having  received thiB letter, and then he remembered that he had received, tho letter  and asked where it was. he answered  that ho had lost it.  It will be remembered that Gach  says that he gave Mr. Wagner 1910  guilder to send to Hamburg. Morewitz' says that ho returned 1800 guilder, so that between Gachs' parting  with the money and Morewltz's reply  100 guilder had disappeared somehow.  It was on the*5th of June that Mr.  Wagner sent tho money to Hamburg.  On the 6th of June the Imperial Bana  here exchanged a 100 guilder. Aa  fhe money was paper curerncy no  record was kept of the transaction.  We give the facts as those who have  taken up Gaeh's case relate them. -  On Wednesday Matwig Gach visited  the -police' baracks and under oath  laid Information against Philip Wagner that he, Phlip Wagner, did. having therefore received for htm, the  said Matwig Gach the sum- of- $723.  with a direction to hand the same' to  _hIm,__the,-eaid_Matwig_Gach,i_and_jn.  violation of good faith and contrary  to the terms of said direction, fraudulently and unlawfully and without  color of right convert to hia own use  and did thereby steal the said sum of  money.  ' Upon this .information Mr. Wagner  was arrested on Thursday and taken  to the police barracks, where he waa  balled by Captain Matz'and E. Grler-  son in bands for $2,009.  The Crown prosecutor, previous to  this, when-appealed to by Mr. Micewltz to take up the caw* declined to  do so, because there waa lasnfficient  evidence. Sergeant Aston applied to  to the Crown prosecutor with llko'  result, so Gach retained Mr. H. C.  Emery (with him Mr.' W. A. Griesbach. as Junior) as private prosecutor. Why Jt might be naked has not  the Crown prosecutor taken any cog-  nzaace of this case. Did he. when  Sergeant 'Aston ask him to take up  the matter defend Mr. Wagner, saying that he would not do such a thing  and If Mr. Wagner had done lt, what  had he done with the money? Did  hf* at any time look Into the merit*  of Gaeh's cose and determine If an  uctlon would lie? These are questions that Gaeh's friends are asking.

Tha Murderer of a Woman in Texas  Dies at the' Stake-7-Flvo Thousand  Witnessed the Death of the Negro  Corsicann,   Texas, March 16.���������John  Henderson,  the 'negro  who  outraged  aiid  murdered 'Mrs.   Younger   several  daya  ago.  aftor    making, a. complete  confession, was  burned  at. tho 3tako  this afternoon by a mob in   tho presence of more than 5000 people.  Hendorson had-boon taken to Hllls-  boro in fear of. tho mob. that gathered  in this city soon after his arrest.  Last night the offlcora in charge of  tho 'negro started to tako him to  Fort Worth for safety. When the  train reached Itasca tho officers wore  overpowered and the negro taken  from them by citizens of the county,  who had g'ono there for that purpose.  Honderson was then brought hore.  When confronted with proof of hia  guilt he confessed tho crime. Preparations were made to put him to  to death by fire. Tho town was filled with people, most of them armed,  and tho sheriff .could do nothing  against their will. Sovon carloads of  peoplo came from Ennls, Texas. Several citizens made strong appeals to  tha multitude to let the law intervene, and assured those clamoring  for the negro's quick oxecution. that  he would be punished. Theso appeals  availed nothing.  At 10:45 a.m. oa Iron polo was  erected in tho courthouse yard in full  view of 5000 people who had assembled thereabouts. A committee that had  been*'appointed to see the ���������risoaer  secured a confession from Henderson,  Justice of tho Peace Roberta:  "I, John Henderson, colored., 23  years old. murdered an unknown  white woman three miles north ot  Corsicana. the 6th "of March. 1901.  Thero waa no one present but myself,  the woman and two little children;  I.murdered her and.left her In tho  house" without any sintention of robbing hor. I don't know, why I did it.  "JOHN HENDERSON."  The flrst'train this morning on tho  Cotton Belt from Hillsboro waa. bo  crowded that it'could, carry no more.  Runners were sent over the country  announcing tha arrest of Hendersoa  and his arrival here, and all th'e  morning peoplo had been swarming  into the city to take part ln or witness tho execution 1 of penalty to ba  inflicted' upon the negro.  After hia confession it was decided  to burn him at' tha' stake at 2 o'clock  but'newa waa received of rangers and  troops en route from Dallas,' due  at 12 "o'clock, and hurried preparations were 1 made to'" anticipate .Interference. A' railroad' rail' waa driven  into the ground in the corner of the  court house .lot- and -boxes and wood  piled around it and,. saturated with  oil. The crowd increased'to about  2000 at 11 o'clock.  About 40 mado a rush from the Jail  across the etroet to tho court house.  In their midst was tho negro, handcuffed. The mon formed* a circle,  holding on to a chain, which completely surrounded Henderson to prevent an attempt of tho enraged people  to get at him and tear him -to  pieces. , They rushed to tho pile ot  wood and prepared for the flre.fast-  ening the .negro to tho iron rail with  wire .and chains. "Cans of oil were  daBhod over his clothing and dozens  of lighted matches touched the - in  flamable material. At that time -the  fire alarm bell was rung, and the  stores of the city were deserted and  tho streets were full of.men rushing to the court house ground to witness the burning.  As the " pile was fired Conway  Younger, husband of the dead woman, jumped at Henderson and slashed him across the face with a knife.  As the flames encircled the negro and  ran over his clothing the crowd yelled and yelled and. Younger again  attempted to cut* the murderer.  At no time during" the burning did  Henderson give any sign. of pain or  suffering. He rolled his eyes so as to  get a glimpse of' the sea of angry  faces which surrounded him, and his  hands-moved slightly.- It was about  10 minutes before he was, dead, during which time the movements of his  hands were becoming feebler.. At no  time' did he make any outcry other  than orice a groan.  At 11:30 Lee French, husband of  the victim of the negro Anderson  Norris, who. beat her to death last  November with a 'piece of iron pipe,  and who was. taken from, the . jail  lost week by . tho officers, and 'cor*:  ried.to'a ylace of, safety, climbed "a  tree and- made an < Impassioned speech  to. the crowd, asking them to help  -hlm-get=the"-murd6rer-and-dcal-with  him as they had Just dealt with Henderson. The crowd yelled- back that  they would assist. ' '  The northbound Central train arriving here at -12'o'clock was crowded  with people from the -southern "part  of the county; who expressed 'disappointment at being too late.'

He  concluded that any such preference  was Impossible at' present but he  eould not speak for tho futuro. An  important thing was to cultivate the  good will of the British people and  leave it to thorn to .decide on.a.trade  policy which in their views was best  for their own interests.  ���������"  Adelaide, Cape Colony,-"Wednesday,  Mhrch .13.���������Kritringer's commando, Is  working northward and" has eluded  three British columns.

There can be no qaeetion that Rear-  Admiral Sampson's1"," indorsation' on  .Morgan's application' was not intended for the public eye. The efforts  he has mado to fix the responsibility for; its appearance ln print  prove that Beyond all, question, the  naval hero who was .in supreme.command when Spain's splendid ships  were sunk" or driven ashore at Santiago has no object In view except  "the good of the servce"when he  advised Morgan's promotion, that la  promotion from tho ranks of the  enlisted men of the navy. Is he richt  in his opinion? That ia the supreme  question. In' the army, promotion  from tho ranks has always obtained.  The army register shows that many  men now holding the .highest commands in the infantry and cavalry entered as privates.- Why should not  tho same system be introduce iu the  nevy. Shall the gates, of Annapolis  academy be the only portals ot entrance to tho hlghtest rank on the  man of war?,. It will be hard to  convince the American people that  this cast iron' rule should be persisted'in.  -The charge is made that   tho military and naval academies are aristocratic institutions.   The accusation ia  absurd. But if' it bo true, who is responsible?    Not the ' army  or navy.  Tbe responsibility rests with the appointing power;  that is.  with      the  president, who has less than a dozen  appointments   during   his   term,   and  -with the members of the house of representatives.      Every    congressional  district  is  entitled  to ono  cadet  in  each   institution,   and  the   congressman is the instrument   of selection.
