 Pi'��^ci-(j t]Hv-09  '���>fan  THE LAW AND THE LAW COURTS  Bannett Secured an Acquittal.  Tlie criminal business of the present  assi/.e was disposed of yesterday when it  developed that deputy attorney-general  ��� McLean had reserved the most interesting case on the list for the windup. Tlie  ctise was styled Regina vs. Bannett, in  wliich the prisoner was charged with  feloniously removing a consignment of  stoves belonging to the partnership of  Houghton ��te Bannett for the purpose of  defrauding the cl'editors of the .--aid firm.  Everyone mixed up with the case was of  the lord's chosen people, but, somehow,  no two of tlie witnesses agreed as to  what disposition was made of the stoves  in question.  The chief witness at the preliminary  hearing when the prisoner was committed was not present at the trial yesterday, lie is now in Butte and desired to  turn liis evidence to account, liis proposition was that tlie crown should pay  him $ls_ a day and expenses, in return  for which he would tell his story of the  alleged doings of the prisoner and his  . wife with the goods of the firm of Houghton & Bannett. This proposition the  crown refused to entertain, so Polsky remained in Butte and the trial proceeded  without him.  Samuel Glazan Avas one of the chief  witnesses for the crown. He said that  he had purchased tlie stoves, and that he  owed $113 for them, but that ten days  after the assignment he was given a receipt for. payment which was ante-dated.  Another witness named Gibson,.who was  employed by the firm of Houghton &  Bannett, testified to having got away  with the books of the firm for the purpose of aiding the prosecution. The  books did not disclose any entry which  could be set down as payment for the  stores.  For the defence the prisoner's wife,  -..Fanny Bannett, was put in the box. She  testified that Glazan had paid her, in the  store, the balance due upon the stoves,  and that the the money was placed in  the firm's till. She also charged -crown  witness Gibson with stealing the books of  the firm, Avith taking money out of the  till and also goods from the store.  Another witness for the defence was a  pawnbroker --named Silverstone. He  testified that he loaned Glax.an the money  to pay the balance due upon the stoves  and .'saw the 7payment made. This was  in the face of Glazan-s evidence that he  never boi-rowed the moneyv from Silver-  s ^��o"_��3 __ud^-ev*,e^  "*::!_1^_fee-p^:^  Ivi^l^iif^  ";jlil*f<lfp&  ' """   ^Wh^m^pip^^yM^m^''rt,i  THURSDAY MORNING, JUNE S,   18!)!).

Two Years for Sinclair.  Sinclair, who was regarded as the chief  offender in the stealings from the railway  company, pleaded liis age and  his family  of six   small   children   as   reasons   for  a  lenient sentence.   Justice Drake said that  he could sympathize with  the  prisoner's  family very much and added that he had  received  a   very   strong   petition.     The  prisoner, however, had an opportunity of  expressing himself and saying anything  he could in his own  favor  wliich   he did  not  take -advantage  of.    He  could   not  close his eyes to the fact  that  the  prisoner had placed every obstacle possible  in the  way  of the  prosecution   and  iu  preventing his own return to this country.    So far as the evidence went large  sums of money had been traced into the  hands of the prisoner aud had never been  traced out.    .Justice Drake concluded by  saying that he could not allow consideration for the prisoner's family to interfere with the  administration  of justice  and under the  circumstances  he  would  sentence the prisoner to two years in the  penitentiary.  Five Vags Get Three Months.  William Watson, Thomas Dunn, George  Moore, L. Dingman . aud 3. D.-Kelly, the  five men who were brought from Slocan  City last week, upon suspicion of being  implicated in the stabbing of the man  who gave the name of E. J. Mack, were  brought before E. A. Crease, stipendiary  magistrate, yesterday for vagrancy.  The provincial police officer at Slocan  City testified that the men gave considerable trouble and tliey were accordingly  sentenced to .three months' imprisonment. Mack refused to identify tiny of  the men as his assailant, but the police  believe that they had.--a-hand in the  stabbing, as they were found in Mack's  company, and had been drinking witli  him before the trouble. 7  that all work underground is eight, hours  in British Columbia aud what will follow?  It will invite the most skilled labor of all  America into our country. This alone will  advance the development of the country  to an extent that is far beyond any man's  comprehension. We all know that the  most experienced miners look for eight-  hour shifts, and these are the men who  can bury the less skilled one and give  them the advantage of two hours per  shift. And, again, when their work i.s  done it is properly done, it is safe to  say that fche best miners on the American continent are iu Butte, Montana, and  what is the percentage of killed and injured in Butte'. It is by far the smallest  of any mining camp in the world.  In the Slocan, mines are closed down, it  is said, on account of the eight-hour law.  . What has been their reason for closing  down every year since 1893? Was it the  eight-hour lawl-* No! It was on account,  of the loss it-wonlc_-eau.se operators'in  mining high-grade ore in the wet season.  To be sure, they have gone a little farther this year and stopped their development work. What schoolboy methods!  Let us uphold the law ! Let us herald  the news abroad. Let every man in  America and England know that Ave have.'  a legislative assembly who are Avorking  ���in the interest of the rapid development  of the country, an 'enormous output of  ore and humane treatment of their fel-  loAV-citizeus. Let the eight-hour laAV  banner forever Avave over the rich gold  and silver fields of British Columbia.  RESULT OF BEER'S FINANCING  M.  II.  Gilliam.

Under  the circumstances you will go to the  penitentiary for six years.  o    Brewster Given Fifteen Months.  W. D. Brewster- when asked why the  sentence of the court should not be  passed -upon him said that he had only  offended in his attempts to shield Sinclair. Justice Drake in passing sentence  remarked that the jury had taken the  A'ieAv that the prisoner Avas not guilty as  a thief, but that he Avas guilty of not  making entries in the railway company's  books, which as a servant of fche company  ifc was his duty to enter. This avus a  criminal offence, but as the prisoner had  stood his ground, and had given the railway oflicials every assistance in tlieir investigation of the accounts, he Avould  take. this  into   account  in  passing the  'ju^-fo  Hvjthifrtwo 'i|ii"fes�� of ".tlie :eity;. y'^keiiiili^  ;."3%tt^i��e;'d|^  ^pai-iy.SV ofhQe _.at/1_ictOria./ "/Tii^'Yc.epitt^  i jittoi.a\ey-gfeiiertii|iclicl'^q^Viu^ajiyJo'Djec^v  'Vtkjn^ jnit "iie��� sppiutect;.qUfcD that-'YtlfSf.i'ct^  ' jj_iat "tSl^.coj^i.^a.h-y* i-.-dflap-en" iiufl^jfed-Ayas:'  a, ''.fpi^us-'^u-vatter^ -khd' "ii^iUiatecl^-.tihli.t.'  stefisV^lto.i.ia^evkikei-fld-^fe  in -���- m   ��� _Pr n n n     _   ���  dj nn ���   .^ u n ���' u d^ii?  ger feqiiiphuiiea - of��    JUpjjise ;Di*ak<>   ex-  presSecr the "ojfpinioii tliat tlie reci^ies| Avas  "a reasonable "oUe." aifel the CaseW|fead-  '. journeel till the next assize. ��  .,- ��� ���  ..  PJSGI. SSEP   Bff��� A MINEE.  It seems tfeOeSSflfcy that the ..tii,ikhtr(I-,  bearers of the eight-hour law sho/rlcl try  and put before the public the virtues of  that niosfc righteous and humane piece of  legislation. The oppose.rs of this law are '  only those avIio are soreJieUdeel by defeat, aud if this laAV liacl not have been  _passecl_they_w:o.nl'cI_iiave.__b-acl-..to-lu*i|V-(--  attaeked some other of the reforms in-  luigufated by the present government.  Do these fault-finders ever stop to thiiilc  that they are trying 'with, all tlieit* energy  to put the conutf y back. They are crying that the eight-hour, law 'will drive  capital from the country. In their unmanly ancl short-siglited camplaints they  are impressing upoii foreign capital tlie  idea that the British Columbia government have passed laws that are .ruinous  'to'-_h_ country and the interests of capital. A Capitalist in London seeing sneli,  outrageous reports may say tliat "tliey  will get none of my nioney." Whitt  could he say after reading some of the  brilliant articles qf the opposition supporters ? Let us look at the law and the  effect it Avill have.  In the lirst plaee, I am a miner of six  years' exiierience, and have Avorkecl in a  number of West Kootenay's producing mines, and I have my first  mine to Avork in yet in Kootenay where  the shifts Avere ten hours that more than  eight hours Avere ever put in in Avork. I  know that there are A'ery f eAv miners avIio  can stand ten hours hard Avork underground e\*ery day. I know, also, that  men avIio Avork eight-hour shifts work to  their utmost capacity, ancl accomplish  even more than men working ten-hour  shifts. These are personal experiences,  ancl eA'ery foreman and superintendent,  pf any standing knows it, and dare not  dispute it except for personal gain or  oppression of the miner.  Next, how much more development  could be accomplished in a year 'under the  eight-hour law? In all the mines of  Kootenay it avouIcI assume enormous proportions, almost beyond conception.  Suffice it to say that, in every tAvo years  Ave Avill gain one year both in de\relop-  ment and hi the output of ore.  Again, let ifc be heralded along the line  Kruger Would Not Yield.  London, June 7.���Lord Selbourne,  under colonial secretary, announces that  the Kruger-Milner conference at Bloem-  fontein broke cIoavu, and is entirely Avithout results. A telegram has been received  from Miluer, stating that president  Kruger obstinately refused all concessions tending toAvarcl a settlement of the  Transvaal difficulties.

At the nieeting of the city council last  evening bylaws fixing the tax rate to be  levied upon the real property and improvements for the current year were  introduced and put through the second  reading. Put in a few words the rate of  taxation for the current year, after making allowance for prompt payment, will  be thirteen mills, or an advance of thirty  per cent over the levy of the proA'ious  year. These figures do not represent the  entire advance made in the taxes since  the assessment values upon which the  increased tax is imposed was increased  about 40 per cent over the A'alue returned  for the previous year/or taking alderman  Fletcher's figures for it, increased by .3;'.  per cent.  Tax Bates Struck.  The report of the finance committee  was read and adopted recommending the  payment of accounts aggregating $-701.  It also made a recommendation with respect to the application of the business  men for a reduction in the electric light  rates, that a reduction of 25 per cent be  allowed on the present rates to business  houses during the mouths of May, June,  July and August, provided such rates are  paid on or before the 10th qf each month.  The clause Avitli respect tq the tax rate  read as fqllcnvs : "Your committee recommend that the taxes to be levied foi'  the current year be. as folloAvs : For the  general fund, to be leA'ied upon land only,  six mills, and a rebate of one sixth if paicl  by August 31st; for interest and sinking  ofund on the $50,000 loan, to be levied on  lauds and on 50 per cent of the assessed  value of improvements, tAvo mills and  one mill respectively; for interest and  sinking fund on the $05,000 loan, to be  levied on land only, three mills -and'two  mills respectively.

In the  meantime the city probably could, in the  event of an exchange being made with  the railway company, secure a live-year  lease of the present recreation ground-:  from the railway company. The committee appointed to deal with the recreation ground question will examine the  ground referred to by alderman Fletcher  and report to the couucil.  the equalities-x>t the two .Countries.;    AC-  c6rding��tq7the c|ispateh  received "hyjpr,  ; Eoydi. president' Kruger prpj3o��e���l tli_it=  ��� re^ideifce-'qf, tWo j-e-Vrs.-be; tieeeSsa. y for  .natural!���atibl.i", ahd that the   full franchise  be   atiqUirable    _S,A_e   yei.rs   later,,  coupled with property and. other Cj.uaJiPi-  1 cations.   The British high commissioner  regarded the proposal as iusUilicleiifc, and  .made a counter proposal,  which Was rejected.  The report of the breakdown of tlte ne--  'gO-iatiOiis has created considerable  anxiety iu political and official eircleSj  and there is much speculation as to the  next iliove of the British government.

St. John's, Newfoundlandj June 7.-���  The British cruiser Counts,, commodore  Giffafd, the flagship of the fisheries protection squadron, arrived, here yesterday  from its first visit to tlie French fci'eafcy  shore. Commodore Giffard is pursuing a  policy .altogether different from his. predecessor.. He refuses.to adjudicate upon'  local civil cases arising- along the  coast, and turns them over for consideration to the colonial magistrates.  Commodore -Gifi'ard also (leeliues to recognize the status of bout fishermen from  St. Pierre, who squat along the coast, and  lie Avill only recognize sucli deep sea fishing vessels as prosecute tlieif industry in  manner prescribed by ancient treaties.  His attitude is regarded as evidencing a  change of policy on tlie part of the  British ministry, and forshadowing a  speedy adjustment of the difficulty. It is  hailed with general satisfaction.  Bank Man Disappears.  Ottawa, June 7.���John F. Henderson,  accountant of the Union bank, and Son  of city clerk Henderson, disappeared on  Monday last and has not since been heard  of. He has been ten.years with the bank  as accountant. Mr. Henderson does not  handle any money, and the manager of  the bank says he knoAVs of no reason  Avhy Mi'. Henderson should leave.

Hamilton Herald.  Wo C'anadiiins are so much accustomed  to hear the practice of drinking beer and  other beverages, malt, vinous and spirit-  ous, denounced as a sin, that it is somewhat refreshing to see the subject treated from a now and novel standpoint. Jt  was so treated by professor Jvoestcr,  principal of the university of Bonn, in a  recent address to the students.  Beer-drinking by German students is  carried to great excess. Drinking bouts  are matters of e\reryda.y occurrence, iind  sometimes they end only when one side  or the other is under the table. '."Professor Koester objects to these excesses, but  he bases his objection on the ground that  they violate the rules of good taste.  Here is part of his advice to the students:  "Drinking is advantageous for the onlivcnmont and  refreshment ofthe organism ; it widens the heart and  the brain. It i.s likowi.se profitable to the social organism  when it adds to its cheerfulness and health * " *  In the rules of drink there is charm and witchery just as  in the rules of poetry ami of (hearts. .Just as in poetry  rhythm and mot re give to slow words energy and mot ion  so do the metrical rules of drinking give a flow and an  animation, an intellect ual mobilization to (ho spirit tin!

Nelson  is  attracting the  attention of the capitalist and the liotne-  seeker, and a. high rate of taxation is not  attractive to  either.     Better loAver the  rate so that the loA*y  pre-vides  sufficient  money to pay   the  interest   and   sinking  i'uiHl charges on the debenture  debt, and  no more.    Drop   the   general   rate.

"J hate to tell this story," said the man
from Long Island, as he raked his chin
whisker with liis fingers. "It's a tale of
deception and the betrayal of the confidences of faithful, hard-working creatures.
"Well, to boil it down, it was this way.
A thin-faced Yankee moved over from
Connecticut bringing with him about
fifty hens. He fixed up the old barn on
the place next to mine, which he bought,
and he installed the poultry, with three
or four arrogant roosters, in this here
barn. He gave out, although he . didn't
talk much, that he was a-goin' to run an
egg farm. He called it an egg ranch. As
he wasn'-t sociable to,any large extent,
iind was in the habit of drinkin' by himself, nobody paid .much attention to him.
