The case before them, the court ,od-  .served,  was  a most interesting stoiy.  The case for the cio.yn was that the  pnscrieis lotbed the man Johnson. The  defer sc entered w__ that The prisoners  __were_r_ot guilty,__\vhich_.ir-,effect said_to  the crown ithat it mast'prove its case.  The defense had also set up an alibi,  that the pnsor.ers vere not there wheu  tho crime was committed. It the alibi  was established to the satisfaction of  tho juroi_ the ca'^e against uie nnson-  ers dropped. An alibi -ihe,   court   remarked, was the best possible defense  to establish, Lut if it was once set ap  and failed it was��a boomerang, for the  reason that the defense would never attempt to set up an alibi  unless  they  felt (hat the evidence we*'- overwhelmingly against them, so that it became  necessary foi them to set up a false defense   It was the besi kind of evidence  when cf tallisheel,  but the worst kind  in the world when it broke down   It  wus nece-.saiy to the eutablishment of  an alibi, however to prove by it that1 it  was therefore impossible for the prisoners to commit the crime and not that  it was improbable that they had committed it.   It was albo a defense whicn  should be set up when the accusation  was fii st made, and it became a material cueum-tar.ce m lessening the weight  of such defense when It was not raised  until some time after the charge had  been   made" In   this   connection1   the  court cited an authority |->e_.nng on the  alibi and in fui tier pommenting upon  it repeated that an alibi \yas an expcl-  lcnt defense it it was established, but  il it failed or bioke down it became a  fearful thing for the prisoner.  Then taking up the ease before the  jqrpis the court went on to say that  th- rpn*e?y ghaigfid tool, pjace at about  1 o'eloek in vlhe momine* find the only  evidence as to \\bat tooK place was the  evidence ot Johnson himself He sai J  he was attar lied by two men and on3  of then gsu* .ed him About the only  other lliinj. lie knew was that 1ns assailants Wei e not Chinamen. In the sci-f-  fle bis r.ose was made to bleed. He returned to his 'iotel to attend to this and  immediate]\ alter informed the police  In the ecu-fle he also lost h's own hat,  but piehect up a hard hat. Ho did not  piofcss to be able to identify the pris-  oneis or te) say what had become of his  slouch hat So far he said the evidence  in his opinion tva_ .afficlent to justify  the jvrors in coining to the conclusion  that John .on. w-i - J ��1 .l"*Pf., 'V-- im ? .'J  he was, without ai riving at any conclusion as tei tjio mrulratiori of the  prisoners. ,  Thp i ext flpestion was who were the  guilt/ men. Wheu Jehcson came to re-  'port the eaee to the police there was a  man named Swift who said he remem-  bere'd when Jolinscn was in the Bodega  saloon drinking and that the two prisoners were diinkii.g with him. Against  this there was-the evidence of Blooru-  flele' that he did not see Johnson In the  saloon. It m'ght be possible, the'court  observed, for a n an to take a drink <n  a saloon with another and not see him  ln the sense'of being able to recognize  him agrin  There was no great weight  or sti oi-gth in Bloomfleld's denial, however,  as  the  fact  that  he  had  seen  Johnson might have slipped hia memory.   It  was  worth  bearing  in  mind,  however,    that    Swift    said    the   two  men had a drink with Johnson in the  Bodega and  the  denial  of Bloomfield  that he did not Eee him. At or "about  the time that the men had the< drlni.  Johnson got some' money changed.* It  was suggested by the crown that the  i,pnso)iers were there and were aware  that Johnson got .this,money. Johnson  then went down  to  La Ice street, and,  according to the evidence of'Reisterer,  the two prisoners were s?en down ther*)  Reisterer says he spoke0 to them and  that afc the time Bloomfield. was wearing a hard hat over his eyes.,This was  important in view of the fact, that'when  it-;was first made theie was no** adoiis-.  sion as to the wearing of'a hard hat by  Bloomfiela./rjje prisoners, however, say���  they were- not down there. There,was no"  'reason why the conversation with Reis-  teier'could not have taken place'. The  -conversation ' with   Roisterer   did . not  necessarily mean that they intended to"  ,rob -the man. They might merely have  intended to pponge upon him   It was  'not at all conclusive with''their*; guilt  that they-were down there. If'the1 prisoners'were not down *-tliere~ and. they  say they were not, their denial,becomes  impcrtant, as it shows they .were, conscious of the faot that in orde'i to'.estab-  lish"-tbeir  innoceuce'thty   must  deny  this fact It was therevore for the jurors  rto,->vdecide the amount of ci edibility to'  placo) in Reisterer.

At;the time of the hearing in the case  Rollan set up the defense that he could  not be guilty- because at. the time he.  was in bed at .the1* Sherbrooke House.  Since then he had testified that at the  time this offense was being committed  he was *iu the"company of a man namevl  Goldstein.and with* no one else arid  tliat he walked up to Goldstein's hoi^ao.

Has Rollan made good his alibi?'-  The case against the prisoner Bloomfield ran. along iri the same way. He,  was it'entifie-d near to the; scene of the  crime; Heiost 'his hat? i-tts^ vvasarrestod.:  Hia story is that he was with the other  prisonei* up to a certain hour; that he  left him and went home; that his father  trcproved him ior drinking and that ho  flung himself out of the house in a passion! and went to sleep in the bushes.  This v.as his alibi. It was significant the  court inferred,,that the father was not  called te> give any evidence as*to the  coming iiito the house'of the Eon that  night.  Had  Bloomfield _r.ade��good  his  story? Had^he established In the minds  of tho Jurors the conviction that the  story of Reisterer wasiuutrue, that'the  story, of chief .Jai vis, was untrue  that  theJstory of the man Swift was untrue.  The Swede said that in the-'scuffle vhe  had lost his hat  He found a hard hat.  It had been shown;that' Blocmfleld had  been wearing a,hat similar to-it that  night.-'Later that nightiBloomfield'appeared iu .."different.hat  His explanation was that lie had lost his hat In a  shuffle   or  scuffle.   The-hat  that, vva3  found "by Tohnson was a size 7.* A'JVZ  fits Bloomfield -"tetter.  "Just' after1- the  trial, wheu so much is^hangingvon this  hat  theory,   the'-'father  of Bloomfiell |  finds this V/a 'hat produced in court outside the house inf the- bush /I do not  'doubt, that the fathers found-that hat.  There is every reasem to, believe that he  din find it, because he" says he" did." But  it is a very, unfortunate'thing, gentle-*"  men, that when he found that hat* on  the Satm day, just ���one week'after the  offensei bad'been committed,. where it  had been lying" for a week,"; that he did  not call in some. 1 idependent person to  observe'the condition ot it.

From that time  on they were not  free .spenders;   they  saved their, wages for a rainy day.   The  rainy day came last' July/ but it found  the men with money.    Those who had  no interests in Rossland left at once for  other mining camps; and those who were'  compelled to remain "were so fixed that  they did%not need tb ask the merchants'  for favors. t The- Missourians who' have  been imported,to take the places of the  union mine '���workers are-not likely to  **be free spenders.  -They know that they'  aro considered' interlopers;   that   their  room would? be far preferable to 'their  company.-   They will save their earnings so as to beifixed1-when their turn  comes to-take a walk, which is sure to  come.   v The   stagnation ] or "- depression  that exists at .Rossland -also  exists , in'  every townun the Boundary district, and]  even prevails to ajimited extent in the  Slocan.   The* mine j.orkers everywhere  believe that-if5 McDonald   succeeds   in'  -"scabbing" Rossland,-that it 'will <on_yJ  be'a question''of~tlme.>when the same"  game will be tried 'in other camps.   The  men are prepariog'for< the coming struggle by saving their-money.    Were1 the,  Rossland mfne'.workers'paid  the  same*  wages as are paid in^all the other camps1  m Kootenay-and.'Yale, the chances are11  business men would^not be complaining'  of the thrift of the mine workers.  'The  . business men of Rossland^ by. their 'ser-v  ,vllity to Bernard McDonald, -have "caused"  the business men of Kootenay' and Yale  to lose the profits on hundredsof .thous-r  ands of ^dollars of business.'   The real  cause of the business depression'in this  country is as outlined above.   Well-paid  men not in'danger of losing their jobs  at sone time made the mining towns land  camps of Kootenay _humr with prosperity.

Before his advent, the  men who worked in Rossland's mines  spent their earnings freely, and all kinds  of business, from selling mining shares  to peanuts, was good.    Once Mr.  McDonald appeared the change commenced  ~pdTted-2475~161_pria__ips connected vvitb?  the direct -current machines and 1710* 16  c.p. lamps connected with the alternating   current   machine,   or 4185 16. c.p.  lampsln all.   ���This does not show that  the machines are "overloaded, for it is  well-known that if 4185 lamps are'connected not more than 3500 are Iikely|"to  be burning at. any one time. At the rates  charged for stores,and offices, that is,i?ll  a light for the flrst six, 75 cents each for  the next nine, and 50 cents for all over  15, and half these rates for residences  and for bedrooms  in  hotels,  the  city  should be receiving not less than $2000  a month from electric light rates, besides getting light for the flre hall, city  offices, and streets free.    The Tribune'  maintains the present ^machines would  not be overloaded if users" of electric  light were only allowed the number of  lights they pay for.   The weak spot in  the city's electric lighting system is not  at the power house, but in the city hall.  That weak spot can' be cured without  paying the ,WesV Kootenay   Power   &  Light Company 45 per cent of the gro_ls  revenue received for electric lighting. -  Among the oldest miners' unions on  the Pacific Coast are those of Virginia  and Gold Hill, Nevada.

ROOSEVELT AS A WRITER  His Former Views on Canada..  Piesident Roosevelt, besides being a  ���        soldier and a mighty hunter, is also a  writer of books.    Years ago, when he  probably entertained no idea of being  carried by events into the presidency,  and when his judgment, as wo may believe,  was  less mature ^ and   balanced  than it is today, he wrote a life of Thomas H. Benton, who was United States  senator from Missouri from 1821 to 1851.  The Toronto Sun, with the purpose of  t       arriving at an idea of president Roose-^  .       volt's views and tendencies in regard to  matters of foreign policy, recently overhauled that book and   quoted   from   it  extensively.   Having done this, it con-  ',      eluded by saying:    "It is not surprising  that the woiid has looked with anxiety,  on the unexpected rise of this writer to  tlio presidency of the United States, and*  ,      it is not surprising .that his pohticaal  ' friends "and guardians have given hurried assurances.   We shall look for the  strength of his guardians."-'  ���* It is interesting to know, what .Mr.  Roosevelt wrote in the biography; some  of the sentiments quoted by the Toronto'  Sun from it are such' as  no  Canadian  could endorse  -Benton was an extremist in the matter of the northwest boundary, and Mr. Roosevelt wrote regarding  . ' thafissue.-    ��� "*  "Benton's violent and aggressive pat-  ��� ���Tiotism undoubtedly --led lnmtto assume  -   positions,toward foreign   powers   that  "were very.repugnant to the quiet, peacc-  '"    able  and 'order-loving portion   of   the  community,   especially- when   he   gave  ^ .vent to the spirit of jealous antagonism  * towards Groat Britain, the power which  'Z held sway over the wilderness borderin  l?-___s on the north  . tude ho assumed was -more than justi-  \fied by the destiny of the great republic;  "and it would   have   been  well _ for   all  America if wc had insisted even more  than,we did upon the extension northward'of our boundaries.    Not only the  , 'Columbia, but also the Red river of the  -. ...north, and the Saskatchewan and Fraser  A'"as -well, should "he-wholly^"within   our  'limits, less for our own sake than for  - the sake of the men who dwell along the  banks."   -  Mr.t Roosevelt went further and expressed his regret that the United States  did not go to wd"r in order to secure the  Canadian Northwest, to' which the  "Washington government then laid  claim:  "No-foot of soil to which we had any  titlo in the Northwest should have been  given up; wo were the people who could  use it best, and we "ought to have taken  all.   The prize was wen worth winning,  and would warrant a good deal cf nsk  being run.   "We had even then grown to  v be so strong that we were almost sure  eventually to win any American contest  for continental supremacy.   We are near  by���our foes far away���for the-content  over the Columbia would have been settled in Canada.    We should have had  -rard-nghtin=grto~be-suierbut~sooTier~o!'-  later the result would have been in our  favor. * * *   In its immediate effects the  adoption of the 49th parallel as tho dividing line  between  the  two countries  ,was excellent, and entailed no loss of  .dignity upon either.   Yet, as there was  no  particular  reason   why   wc   should  , show any generosity" in our diplomatic  dealing with England, it may be questioned whether it would havo been better  to have things left as they wero until  we could have taken all.   Wars are, of  course, as a rule, to' bo avoided; but they  are  far  better  than   certain  kinds   ot  peace."  It would be interesting to know president Roosevelt's real opinion today of  tho above passages which he;indicted as  a young and fiery writer of political biography. Tho sentiments which he then  expressed are certainly not sentiments  that a president of the. United States  should be responsible for; and there is  not the slightest reason for believing  that Mr. Roosevelt now entertains them.  ��� Apart altogether from the powerful con-,  servative influences by which he is surrounded, he has already given sufficient  evidence of the steadying effect of his  great responsibilities, to warrant the  statement that there is not the remotest  chance of his undertaking a policy of  , ag .ression against this country. As the  ��� Springfield Republican puts it: "He is  now a practical statesman dealing with  things as they are, and not. a literary  man academically dealing with things as  they were."���Winnipeg Free Press.  A Remarkable Watch.  A manufacturing Arm of Geneva,  Switzerland, says the "Jeweler's Circular," have for many years been making  a specialty of complicated time-pieces,  and a .watch placed on vi'ew at the Paris  exposition is .regarded by them as their  liighest achievement. In it they have  overcome problems which were before  considered insolvable and have succeeded in retaining the size of the watch  within a convenient limit of a pocket  time-piece, namely, 20 linges, corresponding to the American 18 size. But  two of these watchea have ever been  constructed. One of these was pin-chased  direct from the workshop of the firm,  to be added to the magniileont watch  collection of A.

"  The Nelson Operatic Society held a  full dress rehearsal last night preparatory to their production of the garden  scene from the fourth act of Faust and  the fourth act of the popular' opers II  Trovatore. The rehearsal went off very  smoothly and Nelson's amateurs may be  counted upon scoring another signal success. Special costumes and scenery have  been secured for the performance this  evening, the advance sale of seatsnhas  been good and everything points to an  overflowing house to greet the amateurs  upon their,first appearance for the .season.

In  addition  to  the  claims  which  the  Montreal; people hold by purchse they  have t-evoral others under bond, so that  they hold altogether some .city claims.  The bulk,of-these claims have been sur-  veyed.   Tbey  comprise  two  strings  of  about twenty* each, running parallel to  each other, and through them two of  the fou.; ledges known to exist upon the  property  have been traced throughout  their, entire  length.  ....proximately   a  distance of six miles. A sliaf. has oeun  started on each of ihese main ledges,  one of which is now down 30 fe.t and  the other for a lesser oislance. One ot  tho ledges shows ti width of 20 feet of  solid ore and the other a width of 16  feet, assays from which range from 60  to 75 per cent metallic iron. Mr. Blakemore says work upon tho property will  be continued this fall as Ions; as the  weather will permit, but ihat by next  summer arrangements will be perfected  tor the continuance of work throughout the w.inter.  It is the intention ot  tho owners to continue development for  two years, but next i-.ur_-i.er shipments  of  iror   for'fiuxijig  purposes   will' be  shipped  froni  the  claims.

'.   . . ������'���  \ i        -  Word was received in Nelson last evening to the effect that the appeal in the  case of Manley ys. Collom had been dis-'  missed. This,was an action brought by  Mark tylanley as a half owner in the  Native Silver Fraction mineral claim to  adverse the i re-location of the*- same  ground by J. Frank' Collom under the  name of the Arlington Fraction. The  trial of the case before justice Walkem'  _in _this_city__occup_ied__five_days_ and re-,  suited in a judgement for Manley. From  this the defendant Collom appealed to  the full court and the appeal was argued June last, the judgment' of the  full court being just announced. As  there are several' important points involving an interpretation of the Mineral  Act it is likely that the case will now be  carried to the supreme court of Canada.
