PRESERVATION OF MINING TIMBERS The of mine by chemical treatment has not yet been adopted by the mining industries of Canada. In many localities, howev- jCr. the distances required to transport mininc timbers are becoming greater, (poorer qualities of woods have to be jiised. und the annual cost of tho up- jkeep of mine tlmboviiiK is becoming Rrealor. Slates has al- ready reached this state, and ha? done much in the treatment of mine tim- bers; where it has been proven that a treatment of creosote or zinc chlor- ide decreases the destruction due 10 decay, fire nnd this increases the life of the timbers and decreases the annual cost of replacing mine lim- bers. Timber used in mines has on the average a shorter life than wood used for any other purpose. The sur- roundings in a mine are very conduc- ive to rot. which after a period of three to five years caused the .timber to break, crumble and become useless. Experiments have been conducted in United States mines with a row of un- treated and treated mine props alter- nately placed. After eighteen months every untreated stick was weakened by decay and broken, while the treat- ed props were sound and .useful. From various practical experiments of this kind, with 'different species of wood, important results have been obtained. Kir has an average of five years un- treated life. Treated it lasts twelve Hemlock, lasting as a natural wood, five years, just doubles its term of life when treated, as does chestnut and tamarack. Spruce is one of the species which decays quickest when untreated, lasting only three years. If treated it will last twelve years, there- by increasing its life 300 per cent. To sum up. wood preservation not only prolongs the life of durable timbers. thus decreasing their anual consump- tion, but also permits substitution of inferior species, whose consider- ably reduces the drain upon the more desirable kinds.

For an incident in his! conduct of the case Newton was: prosecuted by the society before the' King's Honch division, was found! of grave professional miscon-j duel, and has been suspended for one year, besides being ordered to pay the costs of the case. It may ho that j this action, against which Newton will appeal, will he followed by a criminal prosecution, for the lawyer may have left himself open to a' ehatge of this kind through fabricat- ing a letter and confession from his wretched client. Whether he is fur- ther pursued or not. his professional career is probably at an end, for the likelihood of anyone employing him after the revelations of the Crippcn case would appear to be remote. As most Canadians are aware, there is a weekly newspaper publish- ed in London named .John Bull, and edited by Horatio fluttomley. M.l'..; a sort of sporting yellow journalist.' In his paper of November 20 there appeared an open letter, addressed to Cripprn. then lying unrier sentence of j death in prison. It was signed! "John nuii.'1 was a long appeal? to Crippen to make a confession. Hsi substance and style are well indicat-i ed .in the will just say, brother, how came you to rio it What demon possessed you 1 Relieve your burning brain by confiding all to ii7J." In the next issue .John Hull published a letter signed by "H. II. Crippen." purporting to have been written in Pentonville prison. It was{ a reply to the appeal of -John Bull to confess, and was in cflect a con-; fcssion .John Bull's enterprise in be- ing able to secure so'precious a docu- ment'was duly heralded in its adver- tising columns, and subsequent de- nials thnt Crippen had written the letter or made p. confession were not enough to make the. paper withdraw any ,of its statements. How Newton's connection with the matter was first discovered docs not appear, but it was known that he was intimate with liottomley. and when the law society investigated thc matter it found-plenty of evi- dence. It was proved that Newton had clipped thc article of Novetvbcr If, and had forwarded it to Crippen in an open envelope, with a note to thc governor of the prison requesting that the prisoner should be handed the letter. As a matter of fact, the authorities did not give Crippcn the, v! letter, but on November 21 Newton i visited his client. The interview be- tucen them v as overheard by guards; in the prison, who swore that the1 subject of the letter in .John Bull was not OH, YOU FARMER!
