Commissioner Selous���Did Galli-  hor & Wilson get any proportion  of this check?  Mr.-Wilson���The payment to the  firm was made-on January 18th.  Commissioner Fletcher ��� This  check is dated January 18th.  Mr. Wilson���We received no  money since January 13th.  Mr. Wilson, in answer to commissioner Fletcher,.said he had interviewed Calkin, who told him that  he had got $40 from Kerr, and in  view of Egau's suit to recover the  money Mr. Wilson said he had advised-Calkin to fix matters up with  Kerr. This probably accounted for  Calkin's statement that he (Wilson)  had advised him to give Kerr a receipt for the $40.  To -' commissioner ��� - Cameron the  witness said that'although the $25  was paid to-Mr. Galliher'he was under the impression, that the money  was paid by Calkin.  Thomas Egan was-then-recalled  for the purpose of ' examination as  - to the amount he owed Kerr. He  repeated that when he received.the  first letter from Kerr he owed him  $2: He denied that he had borrowed,  'any money from *him since and  altogether,'repudiated the alleged  obligation of $6.50 since he returned  , from the Molly Gibson mine.  Mr. Kerr was given a chance ,to  cross-examine'Egan upon this point,  'and although' he endeavored to refresh the memory.'of the witness  upon the recent loans alleged, Egan  denied them with emphasis.  '    Chief Jarvis was  called for the  purpose of fixing the date of the'  McAllister conviction which he said  was 'January 12th.  rTbis concluded the evidence, and  commissioner Selous -proceeded to  sum up .against Kerr.   He held in  his hand   the��� copy- of "the six or  seven "charges which chief Jarvis  had   preferred 'against   Kerr, but  which'had) "not beenrread at any  'stage of.the proceedings.   He said  that six or seven charges, or rather  /counts, had.been made against Kerr  - by'th'e> chief, but of theni. all-the"  first one was-the-dnly one'"deserv-  ing' of an- inquiry. * The fj six others *  might-be--regarded ���'merely^as  re-  ^ports.fromthe chief to the commissioners/ The~ charge which had been  inquired ^into was 'the-one -which  had   engaged .the    time^ ,of . the  afternoon,   -that    of - a '".constable, -."of "_* the - corporation ...taking   it a upon-, himself %.to (-write  to.-the  friend   or-?a?��� prisoner- for  'money for his defense,' which- in the  first place the commissioners' con-;  sidered irregular. .-.Subsequently-it  came to the commissioners, knowledge that the $50 received had not  been used-> for  defense; .purposes.  The money arrived -too. late, to be  so used, as the lawyer had been paid  his fee.   The explanation of Kerr  . was that there had been some transactions between himself and. Egan,  the man who sent. the $50, which  left jEgan. $10 in his debt.    This  was denied by Egan, but even if  Egan did owe 'Kei r the money commissioner Selous held it ������ furnished  no reason why Kerr should f reeze onto $10 and hand the other $40 over  to^=_Calkin._i_He__then_raised_Jthe_  question   whether   the   $40   was  handed over to Calkin as alleged  by Kerr.    The receipt-was dated  February 20th, but Kerr admitted  that it was not signed .then.   The  evidence went to show that it was  'signed-on the 20th or 27th just before Calkin's departure -. for South  Africa.   ��� Personally   commissioner  Selous considered the receipt not  worth the paper it was written on.  It was a fraud on the face of it. He  further thought it was a most incorrect' thing for constables to> take  a leading- part in the negotiations  between prisoners and their friends  with a view to getting funds for  their   defense,   but   when   such- a  thing was done the constable should  be" careful to turn such money over  to properly qualified-people.    He  then moved the following resolution:  "That, having reheard the evidence and weighed, additional evidence, the-commissioners decide to  adhere to their decision- contained  in  their, resolution.passed  on the  10th of February."  Commissioner Cameron - seconded  this without comment.  Commissioner Fletcher said he  agreed with the remarks of commissioner Selous. Police* officers  should know better than to mix  up with prisonei s in securing money  for them and handling their defense. There were lawyers to undertake that business. The other  charges did not amount to much,  but the commissioners had taken  everything into consideration' and  dealt with the matter as they  thought best to secure the efficiency  of the police department.  9)  m  ���m  tixrtiTTyririTTmxiTiimTTTiiixmT^i  Spikes and Ribbon Ends  Just in  a New Lot of  Spikes and Eibbon Ends  L        Spikes fTom  5 Cents to 50 Cents  nminunmi unimuimi.

Wednesday,^ niglit . as "a  miner employed at the- Silver Hill  i   mine a^Crowford^Bay^was return-  1 ing-to-work after his midnight meal  he Rencountered - a   strange^  man  sitting Inear one 'of the crosscuts  leading from No. 1- tunnel -to No. 2.  ���i   He   noticed _ the   figure <a,t~. some  ' distance ahead of him,-but as.he  approached,'the'figure arose from1  1   its half stooping posture, andshad-  .~ing a candle he -held,in -.hia 'hand;  started up--the crosscut���= and,dis-  appeared. I.The 'figure, was taller  than any of the "men*-working on  the shift, ami thevobserve'r asked  shift-boss A. J. Rainville who the  newsman was. '_ Rainville -said no  new ��meu had been put on, and the  miner' then related the .incident.  Rainville walked up the crosscut  some 100 feet, and the strange man  .,��� appeared - as before,'half   sitting,  with his back against the -side'vof  the drift.- Rainville advanced but  as* before the "figure, disappeared.  It wore a "wide-brim hat and was  dressed in a complete suit of' overalls.   Rainville  called, but got no  answer. * , '  ,       By this time J." H. Park entered  _ithe drift to put-up^a-timber,-and-  together he and Rainville followed  the direction taken by the appari-  tion,~as they now concluded it was.  They soon came upon it,, and Park  advanced,a  step   nearer when it  suddenly   turned   and again   disappeared.     At this 'the- boys decided to return to 'the bunk -house  for reinforcements, although Park  says, he -was - no coward," *but had  .stood bravely by-Coxey's iside .in  his   triumphal" march from   California to Washington" 1  Tho men who made iup? the reinforcements were-Frank Phillips,  *W. J. Bavefstbck,* Stanley McLellan  and   the   head chef, Mike   Clark.  They proceeded single file into the  tunnel, with Clark in the rear, and  opposite the .crosscut, as before, the  spook was seen in his usual position.  The party stopped at some, little  distance   back   and   held   a1 consultation.     They decided  to send  . part i  of     the      crowd     around  to the  other end of the crosscut  eo as to intercept all' travel that  way.   Phillips and Baverstock were  detailed to that duty.' When all  were ready the first party advanced  steadily and'when "near the ghost  it arose and glided into the crosscut. " The men  followed   on  until  they met the men stationed at the  other end.   No one had passed, so  they stated, but nothing was to be  seen   in   the    crosscut,    and    the  searchers were no wiser .than beforo,   However, Phillips,requested  a fellow miner to keep him company    for  - the      rest    of     the  shift, as also did John  Sink, the  blacksmith.   AU agree  as   to the  appearance; of   the   spook   except  r Phillips .and; Ba-verstdck, who. claim  the .stranger   carried  no   candle.

''  One hundred   years [ago - today  France, with a population of 33,-  000,000. and-her "natural frontiers,"  represented one-fifth of the whole  of Europe and was in almost eVery  respect its -leading nation.    Great  Britain then had  16,000,000, Russia  only- 36,000,000,  what is now the  German-Empire 25,000,000,-;Austria  25,000,000, and the balance was divided ^ between' Sardinia,   Naples,  the Papal States, Tuscany, "Spain  and the" other second-rate powers  of the time.   Today - France, witli  contracted limits, has but 38,000,000  people, and instead of numbering  the fifth of a Europe of 175,000,000  she is the tenth of a Europe of 392,-  000,000.   England has 41,000,000 inhabitants, Germany 56,000,000, Austria ' 45,000,000," Russia  130,000,000^  Italy  35,000,000.    Meanwhile -the  United States of 'America has increased from   5,000,000 . to fifteen  times   that   number.   A   hundred  years ago "active humanity" numbered less than 200,000,000, of whom  the French were one-sixth, and in  every way powerful and pre-eminent.   Now   the   progressive   peoples number 800,000,000, and it is  not only in numbers that the French  are- surpassed.  These comparisons are not the  work' of an enemy. They are  quoted by the >Tew York Nation  from an article by M. Jules Roche  in the Paris Figaro. But the saving clause remains to be added:  "Nevertheless," says the Nation,  again transcribing from M. Roche,  "in the 'real superiorities'the French  people are not backward. As M.  Roche concludes, the subjugation  of the forces of nature, to which  the increase in human population  is due, owes nothing to arms, to  emperors, to legislatures, to governments. The true potentates have  been the men of inventive genius,  of devotion to science, whose discoveries and whose energies have ren-  ovated. the7 earth and/ knit; its remote parts together. They' have  made greater changes than 'all' the;  princes; all the conquests,:? all the  foundations and all the falls-- of  kingdoms and empires.' -Tin7..;thisn  J lioble domain of  ideas-mere-nqm-  .
