In the Second Court yesterday
the question again arose rs to the
taking cf the ca*h by kissing She
book ; and what occurred will be
found in our report of the Sessions
in another column, It will be
seen that far from being inclined
to ridicule or ride roughshod over
the soruples, religious or otherwise
of any persons, His Honour Mr
Jostiac liiy nos regrets that he !a by
law compelled to aot as be dees In
requiring a " book” to be kissed.
That no Douay version cf the Testa
ment has been by the Government
supplied to the Courts is assuredly
not His Honour’s fault ; and itia
indeed to be hoped, as he puts it.

A IKCHNICAL OKFKNCB.
Mary Chinapoo, a Chinese cocoa dealer,
was charged by Lance Corporal Harris with
failing to make certain entries of the purchase
of cocoa as required by the Ordinance.
Mr J Ainslcy Lassalle who appeared for the
defendant, pointed out that the oOence was
purely a technical one, bis client having made
the entries on a slip of paper ; but owing to
to the illness of her “ accountant,” had failed
to enter them in her book as required, which
had regularly been done, as the Book would
shew. He alto asked His Worship to take
into consideration, the tact his cheut was an
illetetate woman, who depended solely on
another to make these entries, and might not
have realised the penalty which her neglect had
rendered her liable to. His Worship in view
of the circumstances of the case, discharged
the defendant after a warning.

During the swearing of tho jury,
Mr Whariou drew* the attention of
His Honour io tho fact that two
gentlemen, Messrs. Hamiyn and Am Ambard
bard Ambard had declined to be sworn, and
had affirmed. He believed it was not
allowable by law for either a witness
or a juror to affirm insteid of swearing
except upon consciencious objections
to an oath, or the absence of religious
belief lie did not know that either
was tho cause of the objection of these
gentlemen,
Ilia Honour said that was so by
law • and he asked the y ntiemen in
question their reason*..
Mr Hauilyn said no objected on
sanitary gro iuds : whereupon a new
Is.bie was obtained and ho waa duly
sworn,
Mr, Auibard, in reply to the
Ic&roed judge, said ho was a Catho Catholic,
lic, Catholic, and would not objaot to being
sworn on a version of tho Testament

li:s Honour aeketl tho Deputy
Register whether a Douay version

Tho Registrar replied there was

Mr Ambard that though tho versions
differed, it vvss very substantial:
and surely hie oath swan cu tho
court Testament would bo as bind binding

Mr Ainbard declined to be sworn
thereon
His Honour said Ilia only alterna alternative
tive alternative w inld be for Mr Wharton to
Oballeogo ihis^juror. But he hoped
ere long ih< re would boa law passed
in this colony to render it possible
to .sweat witnesses, jurors tind others
without tbe necessity, whioh was at
present, imposed by law, of kissing
tb Testament at all.
Me Wnartem challenged the jut or,
whoso place was taken by Mr. G A
Durity. On account of the uuaatis«
factory nature qf the evidence, the
jury returned a verdict of not guilty
and prisoner was discharged.

CONFEDERATION
The present Colonial Minister is
credited with a desire to group
together, as many of vL«. West Indian
Islands as from theiv geographical
position cau be so dealt with, as to
form a united colony or confederacy
under one cential administration.
The principal object of such a union
is aaid to be to secure greater
economy iu the administrative estab establishments,
lishments, establishments, both c’vil and judicial, but
while any such eoononiy would cer certainly
tainly certainly be a very great gain to their
various colonies concerned, it is
equally clear that the work of the
Colonial Office and the responsibili responsibilities
ties responsibilities of the Colonial Minister would be
greatly reduced by such a change.
Whatever may b« the real object of
the scheme which Mr Chamberlain
is said to be desirous of carrying
out, and although such scheme if
it really exists, has not, so far
as we are aware, taken any defi definite
nite definite form or shape, yet it has
been quite enough to give some of
our local quidnuncs a foundation for
building up an elaborate theory of
impending confederation. I lie story
as we have heard it, is, that the rea reason
son reason for his promotion to Trinidad, as
given by Sir Alfred Moloney in his
epening address to Council, was
only half the truth, and that the
real reason and true cause of the
splendid promotion which has been
accorded to Mis Excellency, was that
having been very successful in his
late Government and being person personally
ally personally well acquainted with the agri agricultural,
cultural, agricultural, commercial and social con conditions
ditions conditions of the various islands
of the windward group, he woold,
after gaining some knowledge of
this Colony and its affairs be es especially
pecially especially qualified to advise the Colo Colonial
nial Colonial Office, authorities as to the
feasibility of forming the proposed
Southern West Indian Confederacy;
and if such were decided upon, would
tie able to assist in the drawing up of
its constitution and ultimately become
its first Governor-General, Not
content, however, with drawing upon
their imagination for this “ complete
story ” our wonderful news inventors
go further and cite the recent ’'bring
ing into line ” of several of our local
ordinanoaa with those of ether Colo Colonies,

nies, Colonies, the new contract with the Boyal
Mail Company for the steamers of
500 tons to be put on the coastal and
Tobago route, the proposed Circuit
Court of Appeal etc , etc , as being
one and all of them proof positive of
the proposed confederation scheme.
This wonderful emanation of some
inventive brain, is not without some
show of foundation, and while pro profably
fably profably the author's wish lias been
father to his thought, it cannot be
denied that unless some very sub substantial
stantial substantial reduction in the overgrown
establishments of all the West Indian
Colonies, both small and la r ge, can lie
carried out within the next two or
three years, the consequences of
persistent governmental extravagance
in that direction will soon prove
ruinous even to the ftw among them,
that are still comparatively prosperous.
It must be remembered that all the
West Indiau Colonies are chiefly de dependent
pendent dependent upon their agriculture aided
to a greater or lesser extent by their
commerce and that every addition to
their Civil Lists means increased taxa taxation
tion taxation falling upon one or other thereof ;
so that evory auch addition either in increases
creases increases the price of their staples in
the markets of the world or adds
another ob taole to the growth of
their a .unerce. Looked at there ;
fore from the standpoint of economy
in the Administrative Expenditure of
the Co'onies concerned, Con federa federation,
tion, federation, were it possible, would lmvc at
least one advantage «.e recommend
it. But the physical, racial and nu numerous
merous numerous other ditfien'ties that stand in
the way of any tuch union are in our
opinion so great as to placo this
question beyond the pale of “ p setk d
politics” at least for the present.
Two things, we think, should pre precede
cede precede any attempted union of these
Colonics:—lst The Establishment of
regular steam communication be between
tween between them and 2nd The initiation of
a general scheme of West Indian
Retrenchment when these two
matters have been fully attended to,
it will probably be found that some
at least of the preseut obstacles to
such a confederation of interests have
somehow entirely disappeared
11 is Excellency’s address, when for
the first time taking the President’s
chair at the meeting of the Agricul Agricultural
tural Agricultural t ociety on Tuesday last, was
one which deserves more than a pass passing
ing passing notice-After expressing the hope
that he might not be looked upon as
being simply their Official President
but that he might be p'iveleged to
associate him*elf with them on all
occasions when matters of importance
were to be discussed : His Excellency
added •
I am not quite sure that it k desirable that I
should always be present at your deliberations
The presence of the Governor in such a body
must always be felt; and I should be sorry it
at any time any subject which might affect
the government should not receive the full
consideration and discussion it deserved just
because the Governor was present. And it
seems jnst possible that such 'night be the
result of tny presence at a time when the
Government was the victim.
It waa indeed refreshing to listen to
this frank and liberal statement of
His Excellency’s viewaon the some somewhat
what somewhat peculiar position of the Oovernoi

i when presiding at the meetings of l
j popular body like the Agricultural
i Society ; these views are so different
t from what we have of late been ac accustomed
customed accustomed to hear enunicated in regard
to the free discussion of certain
phases of public questions...that iho
statement of them, came like rain ou
a long purchased noil
It was an equally pleasant sur surprise
prise surprise to most of those present to
learn that, not otdy was Bis
Excellency thoroughly convinced
of the paramount importance of Ag’i Ag’iculture
culture Ag’iculture as being—to use His Excel Excellency
lency Excellency own words indeed the
life of this Colony,” but that Bis
Excellency hail a special fondness for
the study of Agriculture-that it
was in fact one of Ilia hobbies and
that he had long before his ap|'oint«
ment to Trinidad taken a great inter interest
est interest in the work of the Agricultural
Bocuty and had been regularly sup supplied
plied supplied with copies of its proceedings,
in our opinion, however the most
'•hearing part of Uis Excellency’s
address was that in which he refer*
re 1 to his intention to take *n early
opportunity ot visiting the various
districts of the I'oUny In regard to
this II s Excellency aaid :
It will be my futy to Only carefully
tile (notion of liow agriculture with such
ma, hiiu ry as we have now before us, may be
aulci m the Islamt. I refer more eqjccially
to i he teaching ol agriculture in our primary
schools. ! hope I may be personally able
betuie very long to go on a visit of inspection
through all the diilercnt wards of the island,
especially with a view to learning what t can
ol their agricultural conditions, and it will be
a great privilege it 1 may be allowed, while
on my torn, to visit any agricultural station
or experimental ground there may be and
upon ahich 1 shall be gtiul to be consulted.
We can usMire His Excellency that
lie will receive a warm welcome in
every part ' f the Colony and that
every as-'Stance will be afforded him
iu obtaining all tho information that
he may desire Nothing gives tnoro
pleasure to the people of this
Colony than to see their Gover Governor
nor Governor moving übout among them,
examining into their affairs with his
own eyes and hearing their complaints
with his own ears. The French
prouerb ‘ Licit du muitre engraisse
le cheval ’ bus an application far
beyond its literal limitation of attibU
economy, and it is equnlly true in
regard to supervision n all the con<
cents of life from the lowest to the
highest. There is nothing like the
occasional presence of the rkinf to
infuse activity and attention among
his subordinates —nothing like the
presence of the highest authority in
the Colony to suppress discontent,
redress grievances, encourage indus industry
try industry and discountenance idleness.
