ARCHDEACON HARD- ING CHOSEN ;Regina, June the third ballot this morning the synod of Qu'Appelle elected Archdeacon Harding-of Indian Head assistant bishop. Rev.F. Wells Johnston, of (Moose Jaw was his closest competitor answering the 'charge of murder. Lar- j son said he had. seen, the deceased on a previous occasion in bed. He was then lying with his head pointing toward the north. When he discov- ered the body it was lying in the southwest corner of the shack which the bed was situated in, the head pointing toward the north. He also identified a pair of pants produced as being similar to a pair he had seen in the deceased's barn. An undertaker named Ixmgbottom who had the body in charge between the time it was examined by Dr. Cook and Dr. Charlton, a" period of fivfi or six days, was not prepared to swear that a different body was not substituted but at the same time he was not prepared to swear that the body was changed. The question of whether it was legal to use unsigned deposition of preliminary examina- tions caused quite a pasago. of arms between Judge Wetmore and Mr.Wood for the prisoner. The judge told Mr. Wood he seemed to think he was al- ways treading on his coat tails. This witness made the startling announce- ment that the prisoner had once told him he carried a revolver but witness had never seen him with one. Owing to the conditions of the roads, the witness concluded it would not have been easy to follow a person's tracks on the morning after the fire. G.J.
