' The jury is composed ot \Vni. B. Phillips, foreman, and Wm. Potter. W. Robson, Wm. Perry and James McLaughlin. Tho first tour names are those ot miners, and it was to two of those. Hunter avid Potter, that Sherwood Vlorchmer, acting tor the CrowS N'ost Pass Coal Co., objected, upon the ground that they arc prohibited from acting because they are union officials as defined In Section T, of Part 90, of theCoal Mines Regulation Act. which provides U>at no Union official shall be allowed to sit w a coroner's jury In such cases. Harry Martin, Secretary of Gladstone Local, stated that there were but five officials in Gladstone Local, and the two men objected to were not union officials under the meaning ot the act.

PmUm BANK ERCE FOR CHURCH BISHOP '-- Ottawa, Mar. 21.-*The counting ot the votes cast during the past six months in a rather unitjue religious election for bishop of the Holiness Movement church took place in the oftice't)� the local master, John Bishop, at tlie court house yesterday. It resulted in Rev. A. T. Warren being elected bishop over Bishop Horner, tho former getting uS votes and the latter 40 votes. The constituency over which the election took place extended ovor half the globe. B^lots were oast by. conferences of the church- In Egypt, China,- Ireland and the United States and Canada, and they have been gradually coming in to the office ot the local master since last fall. The election was made necessary because of a judgment ot Mr. Justice Clute in the high court. At the last conference of the church the then bishop. Rev. Mr. Horner, was deposed and Rev. A. T. Warren elected in his place with a new secretary. Rev. S. A, Yorke. Court proceedings had to be taken because tbe retiring bishop refused to give up his position and the retiring secretary retained the desk. The | Judge after hearing the evidence in the case ordered that qualified members ot the various conferences of the church should vote tor a bishop and this was done. Bishop-elect Warren at present resides at KiUamey/ Man., and has been In charge of the work Ip thaf province for a number ot years.. TO THE DOOR HENNESEYa WILSONS .
