Mr. Rnef was con scandal, and had they been properly advised mi^ht even hnve acquitted themselves creditably. But Rnef. as their political creator had {heir ear, and that led to their undoing 1 . And so with the men who paid /or privileges. They did not bribe officials as n matter of choice. They would not dared to have pursued such a course under other conditions. Hut the fact that, Jtiief was at tlie helm made bribery easy. Privileges that were for the eood of the city or which miuht work to its disadvantage AVi'i-e alike a matter of barter, and victed of a crime he did not commit. I rely upon tho testimony of Gallagher, j Wilson and Furey to establish thisi fact. The verdict is certain to be re-' versed."

Hmnr. and William* were shoveling th'' rock and dirt dislodged by slant powder, and were farthest in side the hide. Without warning the rock above be^an to fall, and although the other workmen, who saw the danger, shouted a warning, the two men were unable, to escape. As soon us the air was cleared of the dust the workmen entered the hole and sought to rescue their two comrades. Spurred on by the thought that the men might not have been killed and that quick work was necesary to presvent their suffocation, they worked heroically. The quantity of debris was more than they estimated, and more than half an hour elapsed before ] they had cleared it away. Uoth evidently had been killed in stantly.—Los Angeles Herald.
