I L.niyer'fl Itrrnch nf Confident-.
A queer ense 13 reported from Sydney,
Australia. A man was convicted by a
lury of having tried to poison his wifo
with arsenic. His lawyers obtained a
reconsideration of tho sentence by a
commission nppointcd by the legisla
ture, consisting of two doctors and a
lawyer, which pronounced him inno
cent, the doctors voting down tho law
yer, who thought him guilty. Tho man
was set free In consequence. Subse
quently ono of his lawyers, moved
by conscience, told another mem
ber of the bar that tho man
had confessed his guilt to him at the
timo of the trial nnd the matter wao
brought beforo the legislature. Law
yers and clients have been arrested
and are to be prosecuted for conspir
acy to defeat the ends of Justice. Cora
munii tions between lawyer and client
are apparently not privileged in Aus-
Hotting on the Racm.
The big trottlng-horso people in Buf
falo and western Now York, including
C. J. Hamlin, are said to be preparing
to make a determined movement this
year to secure a moderation, or, possi
bly, the abolition, of the present anti
bettinp lans of the state. The unsuc
cessful f , meeting of Inst
summer . b- - ' an argument
that It will be imr ui'oconducttrot
ting meeting.? pronto lily without pool
selling of some sort. These interests
are powerful ones, and if banded to
gether would malte a strong fight.
sSlnce God doth will that some shall
dwell at ease,
And others ahull know hardness, thia
The lot that fits each nature He for-
And wherpfore murmur when wet
Some day His loving wisdom will ba
As the sweet sunshine following after
rain." Mary Bradley.

make loans to stranded landlords, hns
advanced nearly its entiro capital of
J250.000.000, and received but llttio 10
