Court ot General Assize.


Cross-examined by Attorney General.
It was used for lifting stones and rubble out of
the quarry at he time it first collapsed, the 10th
June. I don't think it was constructed altogether
for lifting weihts hanging vertically. I had the
stone about 20 feet off the ground when it col-
lapsed. That stone had not been pulled out of
the quarry slantwise. The new race wheel was
put in between the 10th June and 2nd December,
1902. I entered the company's service the 25th
Nov, 1901. I did not leave the company's serv-
ice because I was not willing to work for 7/ a day
after having received 7/6. I thought I had been
unjustly discharged by the company.
By the Jury.
I did not continue to work that crane because I
did not think it was safe.
3.55. Cour5 adjourned to to-morrow, Wednes-
day, 7th Oct, 1903, at 10.30 a.m.
Wednesday, 7th Oct, 1903.
Christiana Bryan said I am one of the contract
labourers ; I don't remember my number. That
is my mark. Walker & Company broke their
contract with me in May last year. I landed here
the 13th May. I have been here a year and 5
months. The Company did not furnish me with
house accommodation when I came. Mr. Robin-
son gave me a 6d. the day I landed. I stopped at
King's Point camp the first night I arrived, into
a room, lots of us men and women. There were
25 of us in all, men and women, in the room.
One of the contract labourers that came with me
was my daughter ; she was 14 years old when I
arrived. She stopped in the same room with me.
This was the same room where the men were
stopping. We stopped in that room, I and my
daughter, three weeks. We leave there then and
came to a next house where Mr. Zuill sent us.
We left because we were compelled to leave the
camp by the law. Mr. Zuill sent the police with
an order for us to leave in twenty-four hours.
There were two policemen who came and ordered
us out ; Mr. Zaill was with them, but he did not
come upstairs; he stopped down in the yard.
The police told me to go to this other house. I
have never worked for the company. I have been
willing to work for them. I went to the Cut
Monday morning. We were sent by order from
the manager, Mir. Robinson, that we must go out
Monday morning to break stone. We went to the
Cut and he toll us we must go back to the ferry
to the engineer. We went back and the (n-aiir I r
said he did not have anything to give us to do
and that we must go back to the camp and let
them find something to give us there to do, that
he don't have women to break stone in this coun-
try where we have crushers. We went back, and
when Robinson came we told him what I had just
said and he did not say anything. It was after
that they came and put us out. The Governor
visited the car p while we were there, about three
or four other men were with him. Mr. Zuill
came with them. The Company did not furnish
me with food while we were in the camp. My
little girl was crying one day because she was
hungry, and I went to Robinson and they gave
me something one day. Since that they would
not give anything more. The Company did not
furnish me with water. I never saw any of the
members of the Company visit the camp. I saw
four white men come there one day, but I did
not know who they were. I did not know Mr.
Carr at that time. The Company did not pay me
my wages at 1/6 a day ; the first pay week the fe-
males went to the office and did not get pay.
None of the Company or the labourers gave me
work to do and told me the Company would pay
me. The Company has never notified me to re-
turn to work or I would be imprisoned. After
being turned out of camp I lived in the next
house about 9 days. I left because the manager
told us that Mr. Zuill only hired the house for a
week and after that we had no business with it.
Starkey, the master of the house, gave us notice
to leave. I left. I went to Mr. Zuill myself and
asked him if he would tell me how I was to live.
He told me to get to Hamilton and I would get
service place. We heard when we were living
in camp that in nine days' time we would be re-
turning back in the Beta. When we went to the
other house no one gave us any notice to go home
again and we cdid not know how to go. I did not
have any money while in the house there,
Cross-examined by Attorney General :
The Company supplied all the women with food
one day, they did not get any food after that. We
landed on a Thursday night, I and my daughter
received a shilling that night for food for myself
and daughter, I got food on Saturday, the follow-
ing Saturday, the first Saturday after I came here.
On that Saturday evening Robinson told the wo-
men that they would have to turn out on Monday
morning to break stone, neither I nor any of the
other women that I heard said that they would
not break stone. Robinson went early on Mon-
day morning to take the men to the works. The
women did not refuse to go with him. The wo-
men left the camp on Monday morning a short
time after the men. I am how living on the
North Shore, Pembroke. I am single. Mydaugh-
ter is named Matilda Young. When the men and
women slept in the ame rooms they slept with
their clothes on. After I left the second house
where I was in Somerset I came right over to
Hamilton. I have never worked for the Company.
I never applied to the Company for work since
that first Monday morning. About a month after
I lived over here I went to Robinson and asked
him if he could get anything to give me to do, he
told me he would see Mr. Carr about it. When
I asked him again he said that Mr. Carr gave him
no answer because he had sent us home and we
would not go. I wished toreturn to Jamaica but
I could not understand how to go because I had
no one to give me directions. I have never ap-
plied to the Company to send me back.
Re-examined by Defendant.
I went [to Mr. Robinson and he told me he
would see Mr. Carr about it, and when I went

back he said that he had seen Mr. Carr and he
had nothing to give us to do, that he had sent us
home and we would not go and he would have
nothing to do with us. Mr. Carr did not send us
home, he gave us a notice to leave the camp, but
we had no one to direct us. Mr. Carr did not at
any dime give me money to go home. Robinson
came to the house where we were put about two
times. Robinson did not give us a penny to go
back home. We asked him how must we go and
he did not tell us anything, he told us when the
Beta came from Halifax we could come over to
Hamilton and go but we could not go like that.
By the Jury.
None of the other women went by that Beta.

By the Court.
Robinson told us that we could go back in the
next Beta when we left the camp, but he did not
make us understand that the company would send
Margaret Baker said : I am one of the contract
labourers. I do not remember the number. That
is my mark. The Company broke its contract
with me from the start. When I landed I went
to King's Point. I did not find house accommo-
dation there. I stopped there in an empty house,
there were 9 men and two women in the room
besides myself. Neither of those men was my
husband. I was there 14 days. I left because
Mr. Zuill turned me out. Mr. Zuill came himself
and two policemen. The first time I saw him
was about three days after I arrived at King's
Point he came up there. I knew Mr. Wortley from
down at Ecuador. I never saw Mr. Wortley visit
the camp at King's Point. I was contracted in
Kingston, Jamaica, in the office of Walker & Co.
there. Twenty-three came altogether, twenty-two
besides me. I have never worked for Walker &
Co. I never did no work for the Company. Rob-
inson came up to the camp Monday morning and
he told us to go to the camp to get some work to
do and I asked him what it was and he said it was
to go there and break stone, and a good lot of ns
went. I went with the rest to the extension
works, and after we reached there we saw some
white men that I did not know. I saw Robinson
and we asked him where the work was and he
shewed us some stores, and after we had been
down to the stones, a gentleman who was there,
the engineer told us that he had no work there for
us to do because he had crushers to break the stone.
Then we asked what we were to do, he told us
that he don't know but we must go home back.
I told him that we cannot live without work be-
cause we had no money, and he said it can't be
helped we must go back. I told hii- that I was
hungry and he gave me a 6d. The engineer gave
it to me, I don't know his name, and we went
home back. This is the only time that Robinson
told me what work we were to do. When we got
home and Robinson came I said to him why did
you tell us there was work and when we got there
there was none, he said it can't be helped that is
the order he got from the office. I saw the Gov-
ernor w :en he visited the camp, I spoke to him,
there were two other gentlemen came with him.
I know who the two gentlemen were. I do not
know Dr. Harvey. I know the policemen who
turned me out of the quarters, Williams and
Smith. After being turned out of the camp I was
in the road, I slept in the road two nights, I had
no where to go. The Company did not furnish
me with anything to eat while I was in the camp.
I would have be n nearly starved to death if it had
not been for the people in the country. I got 6d.
the night I landed that was all I got. We got
water the first day we were there because there
were some in the tank, after that was finished we
had no more. Then Zuill the Magistrate got carts
to take casks of water to the camp, and he put a
man there as boss over it and kept the women
from getting any until the men came from work.
We had no water to use during the time. I used
to condense salt water in a kerosene pan, I
wrote to the Company after this first Monday but
I did not get any answer. I wrote some time in
October last year. I went myself to the office and
asked if Mr. Volckman' was in and they told me
no he was not there, and another gentleman I
don't know answered me. I told him I wanted
to go home, he said yes he would send me home.
I asked him if he would give me any money that
I had none, and he said no. That was in Septem-
ber last month. I never went in person after that
Cross-examined by Attorney General.
I live at West Side, Somerset. I am single. I
do nothing at all for a living. I am still in earnest
to get work from the company. A Jamaica man
supplies me with' food and' clothes, lie is one of
the contract labourerss, I live'with him at West
Side, I have been living"with him from the time
we were turned out at King's Point, if it were
not for him I would be dead. I did not go to the
otherhouse with the'.other-women because I did
net know anything about it,' for two days after-
wards, two days after I was put out of the camp.
Mr. Zuill himself came in to the house at King's
Point and told us that the law did not allow men
and women to live like that together in this coun-
try and he told us the women would have to leave
the premises.
Re-examined by Defendant.
We were compelled to leave and we were partly
pushed out because the policemen lifted out the
things, and Mr. Zuill was standing there to give
him the command to do it, Mr. Zuill came once
and the second time :the policemen came with
By the Jury.
The policemen took the things out of the house
and put them in the yard, we would not take
them up, I was one of the ones that resisted tak-
ing them up because we had nowhere to go. The
policemen had a staff shoving me and I had to go.
The other women did not carry their things to
the other house because the house was not forti-
fied at that time. I did not know then that there
was another house being got ready. All of us
slept in that road that night, I don't know where
some go. I was looking for myself because the
dew was falling so heavy I was looking for some-
thing to cover myself.
By the Court.
Williams, the policeman, was the one that
that pushed me with his staff.
Matilda Young said, I am one of the con-
tract labourers. That is my mark. I have never
worked for the company, because they did
not give me no work. One morning they
told me to go out to break stone, I went, I did
not break it. When I go to Robinson he send me
down to the bridge to the engineer, when I got
there he told me I must go home there were no
women here who broke stone. I was 14 then, I
had not passed my 15th birthday. When I came
I stopped in a house at King's Point, others stopp-
ed there besides me. Only me and my mother
stopped in the room that night. There were men
in the room, I don't know how many. The com-
pany did not give me anything to eat, while in
the camp. I got about a couple of gallons of wa-
ter a day, I was in the camp when the company

gave me these couple of gallons of water. I went
with my mother to the Oxford House after we
were put out of camp, the house opposite the
Oxford House, the company did not give me feed
while I was there, nor water. I did not go to
the Company for work after that. Mr. Zuill come
with twQ policemen and told us to go out of camp
and told us that by 24 hours we must come out of
camp, we told him that we did not have any-
where to go and must find somewhere, I did not
find anywhere to go so he took two policemen and
put our things out. After they put the things
out in the road we still remained there. We re-
mained there 'till Robinson came. Robinson told
us to go round to the house opposite Oxford House,
and we were there one week, all the women went.
I don't remember how many women were there.

I do not know who did not go there. I stayed in
that house one week, Robinson said he put us
There 'till the Beta came in 9 days. I don't re-
member the day we left there. He did not give
us nothing to eat when we were there, we had to
find something for ourselves. He did not give us
b any water for a tank was in the yard. I am will-
ing to work for the Company now. He said he
had some things, Robinson said, and hlie sold them
to us in the camp. My mother saw to my getting
something to eat. My mother saw to my getting
some water while I was in the camp. The women
could not get water in the camp after the men
came home at night because there was not suffi-
cient, the women got water in the day while the
men were at work. A man brought us the water,
we did not go for it ourselves. We were in camp
two weeks before we were put out. Tne same
man brought the water every week, I could not
directly say the same man brought it every week.
The Governor visited the camp while I was there.
I don't remember anyone else being with him. I
don't know Mr. Carr. I know Wortley, Wortley
came there sometimes, to the camp. Dr. Allen
visited the camp while I was there. I have been
sick since I have been here when I was in camp.
I received doctor's attention but not from Dr.
Allen. I forget the name of the doctor, my mo-
ther goes to him ; I was not in the hospital while
sick. I saw a hospital there while sick ; it was in
the camp, it was a tent pitched outside of the
camp. There were men in the tent, sick men,
but not women. I don't know the names of the
Cross-examined by Attorney General.
There were two policemen with Zuill when he
told the women they would have to leave the
camp in 24 hours. I don't know their names. I
don't remember how many times I saw Mr. Zuill
at the camp, I saw him more than once. The
women went to the house opposite Oxford house
the same day they were put out of camp. At that
house there was water in the tank. All the wo-
men went to that house'from the camp the same
By the Court.
I live with my mother now at the North Shore,
Pembroke. My mother paid the doctor who at-
tended me. I don't remember when I was sick,
it was when I was in camp.
Henry Nelson said, I am one of the contract
labourers. My number is 135. That is my sig-
nature. The company has broken their contract
with me, from the time of arrival here. On ac-
count of this breach of contract it caused me some
discontent. I am still working for the company.
I was supplied with an empty house when I first,
came, ful! of shavings, I have worked at task
work. I have worked for a fortnight and not re-
ceived a sufficient amount, at task work. About
the 26 June I was sent to the fort, job work was
given to me and 8 others, and we worked as hard
as we could and did not -arn our day's pay as per
The following day I refused doing the job work
and turned to the day's work, and I work until
about 9 o'clock and the time-Keeper turned me
off and said I must go down to the extension. Mr.
Aplin was the time-keeper. I go to Constantine
the bos he says that lie is not empowered to give
me no work, those who are working at the fort lihe
is not empowered to give work to. I was losing
all that time until the following Monday I went
back to the fort and asked the bos to give me a job,
he gave me one. There were about 25 to 30 men
working there at the fort. After I returned back
to the fort I do days work until afterwards I got
task work. The first days pay for which I work-
ed at the fort I did not get. I was paid at the
office when I worked at the fort. When I first
went to the fort Aplin who was the engineer, was
the time keeper, we had a change of time keepers,
I do not remember his name. Mathieson did not
take our time while we were working at the fort.
I generally got my money while I was working
at the fort, promptly, 2 times I did not get it
promptly. The first time I worked I did not get
the day's pay and the 2nd time I did not get the
full of my fortnight's money. I go to Aplin and
asked him for it, and he said he would not give it
to me because I wanted to go and give it to Monk.
I got my money after that. There were other
men round when Aplin told me this. I think a
fellow named Small was there, I am not certain of
his name. I did not get the full of my fortnight's
pay until after, I got a part of it before, and the
following fortnight I got the balance. I don't
really remember how much I got when I got part

The Illegal 1'Av.i-yiint of Fire Arms
and oahie) dangerous Weapons.

To the Editor of The Royal Gazette:
Sir,-The above is, I very much regret to find a
practice that is very largely on the increase in this
quiet little community, where there is less occa-
sion for doing so than any other place that I know
of. It is, I presume, one of the many non-moral-
izing habits, which has been borrowed or acquir-
ed by many of our young men when sojourning
among our "' American (..u-i,-" in the large ci-
ties of the United States, where this deplorable
and delusive practice is too much indulged in,
under the unfortunate delusion that all such
weapons are self-protectors, when to the contrary
they are, besides being illegal, in ninety-nine
cases out of every hundred, the most dangerous
companions that most men-particularly those of
hasty tempers, quick, excitable natures, affected
by nervous timidity, and not of the most steady
and reliable habits of sobriety-should ever per-
mit themselves to carry. Under very exceptional
circumstances it may be advisable to do so.
Otherwise my personal experience and that gained
from newspaper reading and other sources of in-
formation all go to convince me that the man who
constantly carries a revolver or weapon ready at
hand is more self-endangered by this practice than
he is ever likely to be by an assailant having sin-
ister designs on him in this country ; so that I
would advise all persons here who may have
adopted this very reprehensible practice of carrying
illegal weapons on their persons to discontinue it,
as being generally more dangerous to themselves
than to others, except it might be in such an ex-

ceptional instance as the recent murderous attack
on Capt. Smith in Devonshire; and even in his
case a revolver would have availed him little or
no protection against his cowardly murderous
assailant, who stealthily approached from behind
and shot him without the slightest warning. This
is generally the mode of procedure, of all such
villainous assassins, not to expose themselves to
danger, so that in such cases a revolver would be
but a useless burden. I must myself, when a
much younger man, and in a country where al-
most every man carried fire-arms or a defensive
weapon of some kind, plead guilty to having car-
ried a colt's navy size revolver, foolishly encum-
bering myself with it the first two years of my
sojourn there. When I became convinced of the
folly of doing so longer I quietly put it away

under my pillow in my tent to rest and rust.,
which was perhaps fortunate for me, as one day, a
few months after, I was attacked in going out of
a house by a veterinary surgeon, with whom 1
had had an angry altercation. He had been per-
forming a post mortem examination on a couple of
large hogs supposed to have been poisoned, conse-
quently he was provided with a very sharp and
dangerous looking knife, and I having made a
sharp and scathing reply to him, and turning to
go out of doors with my back to him he made a
rush on me, knife in hand, lunging it toward me,
when he was caught by his arm and stopped in
his act. Now this man, had he not have had the
knife in his hand would never perhaps have
thought of committing such a dastardly act, and
if I had had my revolver I might probably have
used it on him. embroiling me in no end of trou-
ble, besides destroying my peace, comfort, and
happiness fbr life, thli...n. I should only have been
defending my own lite. I have only referred to
this as forcibly illustrating the danger of unneces-
sarily carrying fire-arms, &c. I think that all of
the prisoners who have for the last two or three
years been brought before the courts here for the
illegal use of fire-arms have used them unpremedi-
tatedly simply from having them too near and
ready at hand when excited and angered by others.
This, in my opinion, goes very clearly to show
that all persons illegally carrying such weapons
should be made examples of to deter others fol-
lowing a bad example, as too many of our people
here are getting unnecessarily familiarized in the
use of small arms, while there is no place where
they are so little required. Should any person
consider himself in danger of being attacked by
another and fearing bodily injury therefrom let
him apply to the properly constituted authorities
having jurisdiction in such matters for a permit
or license to carry a revolver or other defensive
weapon to protect himself in time of need. This
will doubtless be granted, should the applicant
be considered a person fit to be entrusted with
such a privilege-for my experience teaches me
that there are but few persons who are fit to do
so-not from any want of honesty or honourable
intention or purpose, but from excitability, nerv-
ous fear and other causes. From any of these I
contend that most men are far more likely, under
provocation to use dangerous weapons, when too
ready at hand, when the circumstances do not re-
quire or necessitate such precipitate action, there-
by embroiling themselves in greater trouble than
their assailant would have inflicted on him or
them, short of death. Let those persons who
thoughtlessly and inconsiderately burden them-
selves with revolvers, &c. give up the reprehensi-
ble practise, and thereby perhaps save themselves
from life long regret and unhappiness. A stout
stick, with a well directed blow across the collar
bone will place any man hors de combat without'
endangering his life--unless the shock should pre-
cipitate heart trouble previously formed. A stout
tough stick is always a safe and reliable pr: tee-
tion in the hand of one knowing how to use it,
and is quite sufficient as a protection in this quiet
little community-and seldom needed here I am
pleased to say.
October, 5th 1903.



Extracts from the London Daily Telegraph.
Take the figures of our exports for 1901, and
see exactly how our exports were divided (for last
year the result would be a little more striking
still did we make out the calculation :)
Classification British Exports, 1901.
To United States .................... 18,400,000
To Asia, Africa and South America 53,900,000
To the whole of Europe.......... 103,000,000
To British possessions.............. 104,700,000

Total......... 280,000,000
There could hardly be a simpler set of figures,
nor could any sweep more irrevocably into limbo
the contention that the Colonies are the minor
factor in our trade. They are already the vital
factor, and Mr. Chamberlain proposes preference,
not with the junior, but with the predominant
partner. America could not hit our trade harder
than it was hit by the McKinley Act, and already
as we see by the wretched minimum of our deal-
ings with her, shuts out all she can. In the
second class of commerce also our business with
tropical, Eastern, and South American markets
would not be materially affected by the adoption
of Imperial reciprocity. There will be no retalia-
tion from Pekin or Venezuela and certainly none
from Japan or Argentina, which even if we put
five shillings upon corn, would still send its wheat
and meat into British ports at less than half the
duties they would have to pay in the next
cheapest market-the German. Thus, out of the
280,000,000 we exported in 1901, practically
two-thirds would be safe or bettered under pre-
ference-the exact contrary of the Cobdenite
argument being true as we see. *
A glance at the subjoined figures will show that
our Continental commerce has been steadily de-
clining with respect to manufactured articles for
the last thirty years. In the character of our
trade as a whole there has been an immense dete-
rioration. We showed the other day that our
exports to Germany were sinking except in respect
of coal and kippers. The same statement is true
of our sales to all our industrial competitors, to
France, Holland, Belgium. And not only of
them-it is true of Europe as a whole. But what,
it may be asked, is the explanation so strange a
mystery ? How does it happen that the reality
of decay has been concealed under every appear-
ance of progress? Leaving out new ships, which
were not introduced in the returns until the
other day, the course of our European commerce
in twenty years would present to the casual eye
a not unpleasing picture.
Exports to European Countries.
1882.................. ............. 85,300,000
1902 .................................. 96,100,000

(Excluding Coal.)
To all Europe.

Increase......... 46,800,000
Or 18 per cent.

The apparent increase, therefore, is not much-
less at the best than the rate at which not only
German and American, but even French manu-
factured exports have increased in the same
period. But still the comforted Cobdenit may
protest there is some progress. Alas, there has
been no progress at all. Beneath the surface of
these delusive statistics our exports of mataufac-
tures to the Continent have been steadily sinking
for nearly thirty years. We have made up the
balance and effected an apparent increase, not by
sending our competitors more manufactures, but
by sending them less and less manufactures and
more and more coal to manufacture with. We
have been parting with more and more of our
fixed capital in order to help our foreign rivals to
swell their c-rrent profits. It is coal and coal
alone, which explains the mystery. Coal and coal
alone has concealed the truth about the condition
of our foreign trade. -* *

(From the Ottawa Journal.)
Mr. Chamberlain's ideas of British i1L intli.1l
trade are being met in Britain with the cry that
discrimination in favour of the colonies would
endanger the Mother Country's foreign trade,
"which is three-fourths of the whole." The
Journal has remarked that there is no danger "
in tlhe case, because these foreign county ii- \\hL
trade with Britain do it because they wait the
business, not because they like Britain. ThI-y
will continue to do it unless British duties become
so high as to turn the business elsewhere. 'And
that is not necessary. A very low rate of il'ity
would serve to supply an i nportant InterJInperial
But there is a further consideration. The part
of her trade which Britain needs to'be moat par-
ticular about is her export trade-the trade deal-
ing with that which she sells. Her imports-that
which she buys-will c-me anyway. Now, while
of Britain's total trade, only one-fourth is with
heu colonies or possessions, this is because she
buys comparatively little from them. She' sols
them a much larger proportion.
British imports from foreign countries in
were :,082,082,460, and from British possessions
-;.? -,, --'1,' But foreign countries bought from
Great Britain in 1901 only -*c,,000,000 worth of.
goods, while the Colonies purchased from her
'. j.;,000,000 worth. In other words the Colonies
take 38 per cent. of all the mother country sells
abroad, while nearly SO per cent. cf all she buy's
comes from foreign countries. It will )6e sien
from this that the Colonial Markets are vastly
more impQrtant to Great Bribain than would ap-
pear from the bald statement that three fourths
of her trade is with foreign countries. The Colon-
ies much from the mother country as they
sell to her. Foreign countries buy from her to
the extent of only 41 per cent. of what they sell
to her. Raw material and foodstuffs comprise the
bulk of British imports and these the colonies
give largely.
Is it to be supposed that foreign countries, which
sell to Britain four times as much'as they buy from
her, are going to try to stop doing business with
her because she puts on a discriminatory tariff in
favor of her colonies ? If these foreign countries
did try, who would be most hurt.-The. li.,, in.

The Progress of the Campaign.
Mr. Ritchie, Mr. Gerald Balfour, Mr. Asquith,
and Mr. James Bryce have, during the week,
expressed themselves upon the fiscal proposals of
Mr. Chamberlain. The Ex-Chanceller of the Ex-
chequer did not have a very encouraging reception
at Croydon on Friday evening. He asserted that
Mr. Chamberlain had given proof of inconsist-
ency because while President of the Board of
Trade he had upheld Free Trade and as Secre-
tary of State for the Colonies had advocated
Protection. If Mr. Ritchie's conception of incon-
sistency be correct then obstinacy must undergo
metamorphosis and be glorified into consistency.
Should these most nefarious proposals of Mr.
Chamberlain be carried into effect, Mr. Richie
could not contemplate the inevitable consequences
without a shudder. Socialism of the most
virulent German type was the lightest
of the evils which a tax on food would bring in its
train. He would oppose with all his strength
this new mysterious policy which was ravaging
the country like an epidemic. Epidemics are usu-
ally very impartial in the choice of their victims-
it is not impossible that Mr. Ritchie may himself
b3 seized some day.
Mr. Asquith believes not in retaliation, and so
he told the good people of Gloucestershiue on
Thursday. Germany and America have taken
Great Britain's coat and waistcoat ; what is the
use of struggling to preserve the other garments,
much less to try to snatch something in return for
those carried off ?
Resignation is a beautiful thing but retaliation
is a thing accursed. It would be an agreeable ex-
ercise for the lively fancy of Mr. Asquith to picture
forth what British history would look like had the
British people never resisted the efforts of their
enemies or their competitors.

It will be seen from the official minutes which

appear in another column, that the House of As-
sembly yesterday (Mon.Jay) appointed a commit-
tee to prepare a memorial to the Secretary of
State, for the Colonies asking that the term of
office of His Excellency the Governor be extend-

whose kindly interest in all things tending to the
welfare of the Colony has rendered him univer-

the young people of the colony.
How many can tell you what an important part
this little island played during the American Re-
volution; how it supplied ammunition to the Colo-
nials under Washington which gained them their
liberty and freedom ? Of the prizes that were
brought to its shores, which were captured by the
British, or how our ancestors took a hand in pri-
vateering, or how they sailed from port to port
all along the Atlantic coast trading into the Car-
ribean Sea and the West Indies without any of
the modern instruments which to-day go to make
up part of the nautical man's stock in trade-or
how badly off they were for members of the med-
ical profession and of the Church also ?
Such items of interest would be of great benefit
but as I have taken up much of your valuable
space in putting forth my ideas on the matter,
I must now conclude.

The Prosecution for Libel.
In consequence of the adjourned sitting of the
House of Assembly being held yesterday (Mon-
day), the case of the Crown v. Monk was adjourn-
ed on Saturday until to-day (Tuesday). Some
forty witnesses have already given evidence for
the defence, and about twenty yet remain to be
examined although it is not anticipated that they
will all be called. It is hoped that the case will
be completed by the end of the week.

H. M. S. Hotspur's Concert.
The concert given by the crew of H. M. S. Hot-
spur at the Mechanic's Hall, on Friday night on
behalf of Pearson's Fresh Air Fund was attended
with entire success and answered its immediate
purpose in a most satisfactory manner. The pro-
gramme was a lengthy one, and although there
was probably too much comic element introduced,
the various items were most heartily received.
Encores were numerous and the two humorous
sketches convulsed the audience with laughter.
A horizontal bar performance by Carline and Bax-
ter was announced in the first portion of the pro-
gramme, but owing to the indisposition of the
former it did not take place. A comic song enti-
tled At the seaside" by Greenland was' irresist-
ibly redemanded and in response he contributed
"The horse my mother dried her clothes on".
" The tea walk" by Harrison was another popular
song and as an encore he gave He called me his
own Grace darling." The huntsman" sung by
Asplet was well received, and the duet Trafalgar
Square'" by Greenland and Harrison was loudly
applauded. An amusing sketch entitled "The
Tinker's Holiday" concluded the first part of the
programme. The second portion opened with a
mandoline and guitar selection which was very
creditably performed. Asplet was again encored
for his song "The story of a tack" and as an en-
core substituted "Take your umbrella with you,
John". Greenland and Harrison in their duet
"All for the sake of Finnagan" met with a hearty
reception. Greenland also contributed "You've
made a big mistake" and his coon song and clog
dancejwas one of the features of the evening.
Harrison 'also met with great success, his song
"Something to be thankful for" was encored.
Mr. Taylor contributed the only sentimental song
of the evening namely How can I leave you"
the refrain of which was sung with considerable
gusto by many of the audience. The programme
concluded with a mirth-provoking sketch entitled

Bermuda Charcoal.
Mr. J. Falconer Smith, of Pembroke parish,
has recently adopted the experiment of converting
the Bermuda mangrove into charcoal. He is at
present burning about twelve barrels of charcoal
a week, and finds a ready sale for it. The coal is
of a good quality. The reason that induced Mr.
Smith to make the charcoal was on account of the
scarcity of coal in Bermuda owing to the quaran-
tine laws in British Guiana.

at Pembroke Church on Sunday morning and at
Devonshire Church in the afternoon. There was
no evening service at Pembroke.
The Rev. Jesse Taylor, who has been officiat-
ing at the Cathedral during the absence of the
Rev. Canon Marriott, preached his farewell ser-

pleasant recollections of his visit to Bermuda.
The Rev. Canon Marriott is expected this morn-
ing in the S. S. Pretoria.

Of the Need tor a History of Bermuda

To the Editor of The Royal Gazette:
Dear Sir,-In a letter to your paper of the 26th
ulto. Mr. McLaughlin, master of the Whitney
Institute, has drawn attention to a matter which
is worthy of consideration.
In the course of research it appears that he
found in a home at the Flatts a copy of a paper
published by a Mr. Beach in the year 1817 styled
"The Ladies' Journal," and it brought afresh to his
mind the necessity of obtaining and preserving the
past history of the island-a history mainly for
the use of the schools which would be interesting
and instructive ; abundant in the traditions of
the island and its people, which would make
pleasant and instructive reading for all ages. I
think I am safe in asserting that out of all the
children attending both private and public schools
not one quarter can tell you anything about the
history of their forbears or of the island. If in
anyway it can be possible to preserve its past his-
tory and its traditions, I am sure that it will be a
lasting boon to posterity. The old links are one
by one gradually passing away, and unless effort
be made to collect and gather the many traditions
before it is too late, the history of our past will be
irrecoverably gone.
What little I know of the traditions of my lit-
tle home are most charming and interesting, and
I hope that some one able and willing to give his

The following Message from His Excellency the
(No. 61.)
Governor and Commander-in-Chief.
The Governor has the honour to-transmit at the
request of the Board of Public Works for the in-
formation of the Honourable House of Assembly,
a copy of a report on the damage to Colonial Gov-
ernment property by the storm of the 28th ultimo,
amounting to about 1850.
It is recommended that the Legislature make
provision for the cost of repairing the damage to
the various public works, which is urgently ne-
cessary to prevent further damage, by placing at
the disposal of the Board qf Public Works the sum
of 1500, which amount,,it is estimated, in addi-
tion to such amounts as are available under the
authority of the Public Works Resolve of 1903,
will be found sufficient for the purpose.
The Governor recommends the Honourable
House to make provision for these pressing de-
mands with as little delay as possible.
Public Buildings, Hamilton,
12th October, 1903.
Mr. Vesey presented a Petition from Samuel

asking that the term of office of the present Gov-
ernor, Sir Henry Le Guay Geary, which will ex-
pire early in 1904, be extended for such further
period as His Majesty's Government may deem fit
-which was agreed to.
Mr. Wilkinson in the chair.
Mr. Peniston moved that it be recommended to
the House to send the following address to the
Right Honourable the Secretary of State for the
Colonies :
To the Right Honourable II. 0. Arnold Foster, His
Majesty's Principal Secretary of State for the
Colonies :
The Speaker and members of the House of As-
sembly of Bermuda having learned with regret that
His Excellency the present Governor, Lieutenant-
General Sir Henry Le Guay Geary, is likely to re-
tire from the Army in April next and thus bring
his term of office as Governor of these Islands to a
close, and greatly appreciating his hearty and un-
ceasing endeavours to promote every thing condu-
cive to the best interests of this Colony and firmly
believing, that if he were allowed to retain his
post here as Governor, for the usual term for
which Governors are appointed to this Country
his administration of affairs extended over a long-
er period will be conducive to the interests of this

Why there was no fire to the smoke.
To The Editor of the Royal Gazette :
Sir,-I noticed the other day, in looking over
The Colonist of the 3rd inst., an account of a fire
on the evening of the 1st inst. at Mr. T. R.
Lightbourn's store, Paget. My attention was
particularly attracted to one statement, which, if
it be a statement of fact, disposes of a belief very
widely entertained. In common with many
others I had believed that smoke was a sure sign
of fire. Judge then of my surprise on reading
that When the shop was opened, the place was
filled with smoke, but there was no sign of fire,"
clearly smoke is not a sign of fire.
In the pursuit of certain investigations anent
the smoke which was no sign of fire I stum-
bled upon an explanation which at once restored
my mental comfort. It is this :-Mr. Leseur, be-
fore apprising Mr. Lightbourn that smoke was is-
suing from his (Slr. Lightbourn's) store, had
first informed a man named Mr. Augustus Simons,
who with his son at once set out for the scene of
the smoke. He called at Miss Gilbert's house and
informed her of the state of affairs. The three had
reached the store twenty minutes before Mr.
Lightbourn, and, when he arrived, had succeeded
in getting the flame under control.
Yours, &c.

my discontent and that of the rest of the men.
These men of the riot was the disturbance. I was
not in the riot.
Cross-examined by Attorney General.
It was this year that Mr. Aplin told me that
he would not give me all the money because I was
going to give it to Monk. I could not say how
long I worked at task work altogether, I worked
more than a month at task work. Up to the end
of last November I Delieve that I did about an
equal quantity of task and day work.

Charles Hamilton said : I am one of the con-
tract labourers. My number I don't remember.
That is my signature. The company first broke
their contract with me when they did not give me
house accommodation. I worked the first Mon-
day I was here, I took sick before the ending of
the first fortnight. I was paid for the days I
worked, while sick I was attended by the doctor
at the dockyard, I was at Ireland Island hospital.
Another sick man was there besides me. I saw a
hospital tent at Kings Point, I lived in a tent
about three days. After coming out of the hos-
pital I did about four days day work, they knock-
ed me off of days work then and send me to loa.l
cars. I had fever and cold. When they sent me
to fill cars I did not go, I told Mr. Carr that I was
just from the hospital and was sick, my strength
cannot afford me to lift the heavy stones for the
cars. He says he has nothing more to do. I went

The Speaker and members of the Assembly re-
spectfully request that you will use your best en-
deavours to obtain the sanction of His Majesty's
Government to allow General Geary to remain
here as Governor for such further period after
April 1904 as in its wisdom it may deem fit.
Mr. Vesey moved to strike out all after the word
"House" and to insert instead the words "that
a committee be appointed to prepare a memorial
to the Secretary of State for the Colonies asking
that the term of office of His Excellency Lieut.
General Sir Henry Le Guay Geary be continued

ment may deem best,-which was agreed to.

ing members a committee for that purpose :-Mr.

and a strong endorsement of his present policy,

London, Oct. 9-The Anglo-French treaty of
arbitration is expected io be signed by Lord Lan-
caster and M. Cambon next week,, A great deal
of satisfaction is expressed in official circles at the
success which has attended the negotiations. The
news came as a complete surprise to the Foreign
Embassies here. It is acknowledged on all sides
that His Majesty's influence has largely contribu-
ted to the successful negotiations.
London, Oct. 9.-It is learned that in addition
to the settlement of an Anglo-French Arbitration
Treaty an understanding has been arrived at be-
tween the Governments of the two countries in
connection with the Far East. When M. Delcassd
accompanied the President to London recently he
discussed with Lord Lansdowne the possibility of
a Russo-Japanese war which might involve Eng-
land and France in hostilities. To avert this a
private understanding was arrived at-the French
Minister for Foreign Affairs should urge pacific
measures at St. Petersburg, while Lord Lans-
downe should do the same with Japan. This un-
derstanding is the most important factor looking
to peace in the Far East and taken in conjunction
with the Japanese assurances to Russia with re-
gard to the evacuation of Manchuria and the gen-
eral pacific tone adopted by the Japanese Govern-
ment and its representatives abroad, it goes far to
explain the feelings of security exhibited in Lon-
don and several other European capitals in con-
nection with the alarming reports emanating from
China and elsewhere.
Dublin, Oct. 10.-Mr. Sheahan, Irish National-
ist candidate, has been elected to represent South
Meath in Parliament by a majority of 1214 over
Mr. J. H. Parnell who ran as Independent Na-


to the bos of a gang for work, he told me he can't
put me on to work and I start working. I started
working at days work and worked about three
days and the foreman of the gang told me my
time was not taken, so I must strike off working,
I went to the time keeper, Mathieson, and ask
him if he take my time since I was working with
the gang, he said, No, he did not put me on to
work, and I left him. After 1 left him I went to
Mr. Carr he told me I should not work unless the
ti-ne keeper told me to. I wrote Mr. Carr a note
once but he simply look at it, he did not read it,
and he returned it to me. I worked for some of
the sub contractors, I was drilling rocks. The
first one was Constantine that I worked for, he
came over to the cut where we were and paid us,
he count over the money and give us. We were
not paid in envelopes at this time. When I was
paid not in envelopes my money was not always
satisfactory, they paid us what they thought
proper, Constantine paid what he thought proper.
I complained of these payments to the members of
the company, to Mr. Carr. This breach of con-
tract make me discontented. I am not working
for the company now. I get a job in January last,
and left the company, I don't remember the date.
I worked for the Company up to two days before
I left the job. The Company never notified me
to return to work at any 'time. The Company
gave me permission to work elsewhere between
June and July last year. I lived at King's Point
in camp till January. I saw the .vomen there
when I was there. They left about two weeks
after they came.
Cross-examined by Attorney General,
I went to Coombs for work after I was sent to
fill cars, I asked him for work in his gang, it was
in his gang that I started working when he told
me that I could not work there. Mr Matthieson
told me that I could not be paid because I work-
ed in that gang without leave. I was sick twice.
I was staying in the hospital for one week the
first time, and two weeks the second time. The
Company provided for me while in the hospital.
The foreman of the gang who told me my time
was not taken was Coombs.
By the Court.
I am employed now in the Dockyard. I had
permission from the Company to go there.
Joseph Maxwell said : I am one of the contract
labourers. The Company have broken their con-
tract with me. When I came first I got a house
to sleep, but no bed. I did not work the first
Monday after I came, because the pay was 3/ a
day and they said we were to pay for ferriage and
that would not make 3/ a day but 2/10. I mean
the contract pay was 3/ a day. I was told when I
went out to the works that I would be paid 2/10 a
day. I returned to work the next day, because
they altered what they said the first day and
made it 3/ a day. The Company furnished us
with free tickets for ferriage. The house accom-
modation made me discontented. I worked the
whole fortnight. I have not always got continuous
work from the Company when I wanted it. I mean
at first when I came, before the first of December.
I was sent by the walking bos to Mr. Wortley.
Richards was the walking bos. Wortley said I

London, Oct. 9-The new Cabinet Ministers
have assumed their duties, the scale of office hav-
ing been exchanged at a Privy Council meeting
held this morning.
London, Oct. 9-Mr. Victor Cavendish, nephew
and heir of the Duke of Devonshire, has been ap-
pointed Financial Secretary of the Treasury.
London, Oct. 10-It is announced that the Mar-
quis of Salisbuoy, late Viscount Cranborne, will
enter the Cabinet as Lord Privy Seal, the office
held by his father until his retirement last year,
when Mr. Balfour assumed the post. The Cabi-
net no w consists of 19 members.
.London, Oct. 9-Mr. Gerald Balfour addressing
a hu-ltin:. at Leeds reaffirmed that thegovernment
was pledged not to give effect to the fiscal reform
Pt'. until after the appeal to the country
had been made, and he intimated the possibility
that after Mr. Chamberlain had concluded his
mission it might be found that the taxation of
food was within the range of practical politics.
Sir Charles Tupper, Ex-Premier of Canada, ex-
pressed his complete approval of Mr. Chamber-
lain's policy.
London, Oct. 9-Mr. Ritchie delivered a speech
at Croydon to-night on free trade and the reasons
for his resignation before an audience of four
thousand persons. The reception of Mr. Ritchie
was not harmonious, consisting of cheers, hoots
and counter cheers for Mr. Chamberlain.
The Speaker precipitated a scene of disorder by
declaring that Mr. Chamberlain had been incon-
sistent because he upheld free trade while Presi-
dent of the Board of Trade and Protection while
Secretary of State for the Colonies. He felt con-
vinced that the present preferential proposals were
merely] an entering wedge which would ulti-
mately land the country in the same position as
Germany, where food taxes had driven the work-
ingmen to socialism. Mr. Ritchie concluded with
a statement that he opposed with all his strength
the new mysterious policy which was ravaging
the'country like an epidemic. He resumed his
seat amid a scene of disorder and a vote of thanks
was ultimately carried amid great shouts and
London, Oct. 9-Mr. Asquith, speaking at Con-
norford, Gloucestershire, yesterday, contended
that it was impossible to retaliate upon the pro-
tected countries without taxing food or raw ma-
terial, and experience proved that retaliation did
more harm to the retaliators than the retaliated.
The adoption of Mr. Chamberlain's proposal
would foment quarrels with the Colonies. It was
a calumny to the Colonies to say unity of Empire
was impossible without preferential tariffs. Mr.
Jas. Bryce, speaking at Lancaster, expressed sim-
ilar opinions.

London, Oct. 10.-The West India Committee
conveyed the thanks of the Georgetown Chamber
of Commerce to Mr. Chamberlain for his services

nent occupation of points now held as being a set-
tled policy.

nation is supposed to be Corea. It is rumoured
that the Japanese are landing men there.

ered dangerous for vessels to leave port.

several days has been raging along the North At-
lantic ceast has considerably interfered with ship-
ping, and to-day only four of the ocean liners, all
of which have been delayed, succeeded in making
New York, Oct. 9-Torrential rain commencing
early yesterday and continuing with scarcely any
intermission until late to-day, during which time
unprecedented precipitation of 10.04 inches was
recorded, laid New York and all the surround-
ing country under a flood to-day, causing much
damage. To-night the rain practically ceased,
but a coast storm is reported to be approaching
and a threatened hurricane renders it unsafe for
vessels of any class to leave ports.
New York, Oct. 9-After seventy-four hours of
heavy rain New York and vicinity suffered from
floods. Six and half inches of rain had fallen in

duit containing seventy telegraph wires was so
flooded as to disable all the wires.
Paterson, N. J., Oct. 11.-For nearly 48 hours
Paterson has been at the mercy of the Passaic
River. The waters have maintained a height suffi-
cient to cut the western half of the city from the
eastern, and almost all means of communication
by bridges has been destroyed. Two bridges
above the Falls remain but approach to them
is impossible. Three bridges below the
valley of the rocks still stand but it is impossible
to live in reaching them. The other bridges in
the city have been carried away. The inundation
of the low districts has resulted in great damage
to property. The flood however is beginning to
recede. A number of buildings fell to-day and
many others have been undermined.
Paterson, N. J., Oct. 11-The damage to mill
property is chiefly from the submersion of portions
of the plant, and great quantities of the produce.
Thousands will be out of employment for a long
time. The loss is estimated at more than two
millions. The suffering in Wallington and Dut-
tonville has been very great, all through these
districts houses and other buildings with a great
quantity of stock may be seen floating about.
Twenty-five bridges are down in Passaic and Sus-
sex counties on the Susquehanna railroad.

until to-morrow evening.

following cable to the King : Pleased inform Your
Majesty four days visit Boston most successful.

parade Sunday. Yesterday saw iu.igui>:i'ut
march and drill West Point Cadets. Command-
ant sends respectful greetings to Your Majesty.
Great cordiality everywhere toward Your Majesty
and England. Washington to-morrow and Pres-
ident receives us. Lord Denbigh received the
following from His Majesty: Delighted to hear
how enthusiastically you have been received every-
where; it is very kind of President to receive also. ,
Buffalo, N. Y., Oct. 11.-The Honourable Ar-
tillery Company of London and its host The An-
cient Honourable Artillery Company of Massachu-
setts passed through Buffalo to-day and proceeded
to Niagara Falls. Some delay was caused by the
floods in-the Eastern part of the State. During
the afternoon the party visited the points of in-
terest at the Falls and contiguous country.
New York, Oct. 9-Sir Thomas Lipton sailed
for home yesterday. He would not talk about
the possibility of his challenging again for the
America's cup.

OF A CELEBRITY occasionally throws

many curious and interesting sidelights on the circumstances
attending his rise into Public Favour.
A Well Known Composer, whose exquisite melodies have
contributed to the happiness of numberless homes in every corner
of the globe, makes a strikingly significant statement regardilig
his most Popular Successes.
It is well understood that the Musical Temperament, highly
strung and sensitive, is peculiarly liable, especially under a
physical affliction, to worry its possessor into a form of mental
activity which speedily exhausts all the available nerve forces,
and becomes a serious menace to Efficiency.
Events combined to reduce the composer to the alarming
condition described above, but (as he relates in the impressive
communication which follows) he was fortunately ordered by his
doctors to take Phosferine, which he found so beneficial that the
public have been further enriched by the delightful songs which
his wonderfully restored health allowed him to compose.
Mr. EDWIN GREENE, Buckingham Villa, Cheltenham, one of the most ftilno;is
Musical Composers, of to-day, author of those beautiful songs Springtide," T tIre is
Garden," I remember, I remember," Sing me to Sleep," songs that brought ple si. e
and consol tion into thousands of homes throughout the worl1 writes :-" Thrl'e y ;us
ago I had to undergo a most serious surgical operation (Inquinal Colotomy), t .is save
my life, but left my nerves in a frightful state. I took Phosferine on the a Ivice of in
doctors, which has so thoroughly restored my health and vitality, thau since toi?- I i1 v-'
written my most s successful songs. Altogether, since then, I have written 27, anil of hlics
published 5, three of them 1:ave been more successful thin I could i os ibly have
anticipated. I always say that it is a greAit mystery to in- th.t the e sho- Ad be a p ron
living who hIis never used or heard of the wonderful eff'.cts of Phosferine. So maiuy
friends of mine have expressed their wonder at mv wondrous vitality after so severe an
illness and operation; my answer is Phosfcr'ne. I be ieve in I' I...-. n. as I do in the
sky beirg above me. You will recolect I wrote you a testimonial before (ill March, 1900),
and now aft r a lapse of three yea's I send you this one to use as you like. I have
recommended it to scores of friends and have always found it exactly as you state. Your
Phosferine has helped me so much that you cannot possibly understand all it has been to
me."-March 7th, 1903.

Do you want to use something
to Improve your Stock-Horses
Cows, Hogs and Poultry ?
If so, we can furnish you the cheapest
and best conditioner ever made. It has
been tested for over 20 years and is
manufactured on honoar and sold on
its merits. It contains the exact amount
of necessary Barks, Roots and Seeds to
keep the Stomach soft and sweet, Bowels
regular, Water clear, Blood cool and in
healthy condition, enough charcoal to ab-
sorb, all the poisonous gases and impur-
ities of the Stomach and Intestines and
carry them out of the system.
It is compounded in a most skillful and
scientific manner and contains the exact
proportions of such valuable ingredients
as Foenegreek seed, Gentian, Ginger,
Sassafras Bark, Poplar Bark, Blood Root,
Golden Seal, Anise seed, Caraway seed,
Soda and powdered Charcoal.
To make a good Stock Food it must be
a perfectly balanced compound. If you
knew the amount to use of each of the
articles and had it compounded at your
local drug store it would cost you from
30c to 400 a pound. The manufacturer
buys these ingredients in ton lots and
buys for spot cash, We sell it to you
cheap. No one can yell you the same
grade of goods as cheap as we sell Wilbur's
Food. Anyone can sell so-called Stock
Food at a lower price per pound, but you
have to feed three or four ounces of that
cheap food every day; and then you do
not get as good results as when you feed
One Ounce Once a Day of
Seed Meal Stock Food.
Compare our Dollar box with other
foods. A 5 lb. box of Wilbur's Food
costs one dollar. It contains enough, if
fed according to directions using our one
ounce measure, to last one animal 80 days.
The ost is ents a ay. A 25 lb. pail
costs $3.50 and contains enough to feed
one animal 400 days.
Costs Less than One Cent a Day.
