"We are just hegiiining to realize how many of us there, are," said Rev. Dr Spenser B. Meeser, of the Wood ward Avenue Baptist church, who returned Friday from a meeting of the executive board of the general -BaiJ-tlt convention of America. "There are, all told in the United States, Baptists." The meeting of the committee, held in Louisville, was for the purpose of deciding upon a place otmeet-ing for the next- general.coaveption Judges Come and Go, But "Jimmie" Mc-Ewan, of Sandwieh, Still Shouts "God Save the King." James P. MeEwan enjoys the distinction being the oldest official, in point service. -in the Essex county courts. For thirty-four years "Jimmie" has acted as court crier at Sandwich, and he bids fair to open and close the sessions for many years to come. A court at Sandwich would not appear natural if "Jimmie McEwan" did not stand up in-his place and open the proceedings. He recites some lines in opening the court, but even the regular attendant has never been able to catch the meaning of any of the fittje speech, except the time at which the court will reopen and the closing words of "God save the kins." During his incumbency of the office Mr. McEwan has acted as court crier for all the prominent judges of Ontario, and he is known to all the lawyers and a great majority of the people who attend the sessions as jurors or witnesses. His duties are to call the names of the jurymen and see to it that every man in the jury box subscribes to the oath. The crier is very particular, and if a juror does not take hold of the Bible in the proper way he is officially called down by "Jimmfe." He also the names of the witnesses in the cases and when the court is running smoothly "Jimmie" sits back in his chair and sometimes sleeps away the hours when a tedious case is under consideration. He is the son of the late Sheriff MAY DIVIDE OFFICE North Essex Likely to Get Its Own License Inspector. PAUL MORAND IS MENTIONED In That Case Gaspard Pacaud, Persona Non Grata to French Canadians, Probably Will Retain Windsor End of the Position Salary Hay Be Split. It is rumored that a change is contemplated In the office of license inspector in Windsor. At the present time Gaspard Pacaud is Inspector for both Windsor and North Essex, and it is intimated that the office is to be divided, with the appointment of? an inspector for North Essex. Paul Morand, of Tecumseh, is favored for the North Essex position, if the government decides to make two separate offices. He is a stanch Conservative, and is highly respected among the French Canadians of the county. A certain element in the Conservative party has been asking for the removal of Gaspard Pacaud from office since the party came in power last January, but Hon. J. O. Reaume, who has the say in these matters, did not take very kindly to the proposition, in consequence Inspector Pacaud was left undisturbed, even in the face of a petition to Dr. Keaume asking for the inspector's dismissal. This petition was signed principally by French Canadians. It is believed that the French Canadians will be satisfied, if Paul Morand or some other Conservative, is appointed license' inspector for North Essex, where they are more interested. Just what will be done regarding the salarv question is not known. If the government splits the salary now paid to Inspector Pacaud the half will not be sufficient for the Inspector in the city to live on. and he will have to take up some side line in order to make both ends meet. The change, if made, will probably go into effect prior to the granting of the licenses for the fiscal year, beginning May 1, 1906. The Inspector would have to receive his appointment several months prior to this date 'n order to give him time to visit all the hotels in the riding. He 'has to report on ail hotels before' the applications for licenses will be granted. plan to Save Canadian Game. Hon. O. Reaume, minister of pub lie works, makes the statement that the province of Quebec is ready to cooperate with Ontario in passing game laws. The laws of Quebec allow the hunters great freedom, and, in consequence, deer, moose and other large game are slaughtered every fall. Tlw Ontario laws limit the amount of game to be taken by eatfh individual hunter, and Quebec in all probability will pus a similar law. PLACES TO GO IN WINDSOR. The Merchants' Sank of Canada.
