der case of Annie Le Coney, who was

several thousand dollars for back wages.
The theory of tbe state is thalJCIiaukley
Le Coney killed his niece to save tbe
money to bimselt and other beirs. It is
believed that the girl's clothes were after
ward arranged to give the impression
that some ot tbe nrgro hands had mur
dered the girl in an attempt upon her
honor. Murray is charged with being an
accessory to the crime.

come. A federation ot labor would
forthwith be organized throughout Eng

Geo. Gerst, an apprentice boy on the
British ship Scottish Glens, deserted the
vessel a few days ago in Portland and
then burglarized the residence of a Port
land citizen and secured $40. He was
soon arrested and brought before Judge
Stearns Saturday, convicted, and sent
enced to the peuitentiary at Salem for
one year. Tbe boy was only sixteen
years of age, and as it seemed more
cruel tban human to punish so young a
person by imprisonment, the officials of
the Portland Boys, and Girls' Aid eociety
interested themselves in the boy's be
half, and succeeded in securing a com
mutation of sensenco, from tender hearted
Judge Stearns, under condition that tbe
boy would letarn to the ship. The boy
willingly submitted to the demands of
the judge aud through orders from the
society officials, Ex-Jailor Woods arrived

bon mot of the late Henry Fairbrotber.
Meeting a minister in Pawtucket one
day, with whom he was well acquainted,
tbe divine told bim he had received a call
to another parish and should accept.
'A call?" said Henry.
Yes, I have been laboring in the vine
yard of the Lord here in Pawtucket for a
number of years tor a salary of $1,000
per annum and have received a very
flattering offer to go to Brooklyn with a
salary of $3,000."
'And that is what you mean by a call!"
"Well, up at the club we should call
that a raise."

About 3 o'clock this afternoon publio
attention was called to a quarrel between a
Kanaka named J. K. Martin tnd a half,
breed named Dick Edwards, a young man
born in this city, whoso father was an
Euglishman and whose mother is a respect
able Indian woman. They first commenced
to talk loudly on the corner, opposite ths
city jail, and they came down opposite
Lawyer Condon's office, when the Kanaka
stabbed Edwards twice in tho breast By
this time the attention of the people was
attracted to the quarrel, and the marshal
grabbed Martin and Mr. J. W. Condon
took hold of Edwards. As our reporter
came out of the office he heard Edwards
say, "See what tho d d negro has done to
me," and he fell on the eidowalk and com- '
nienced to breathe hard. He was taken
to the marshal's odice and a doctor called.
Iu fifteen minutes he was dead. In nulling
up his shirt one wound was found in the
left breast near the heart and the other near
the center, either of which would have
proved fatal. Mr. J. W. Condon was talk-
ing with Edwards about some business when
Martin accosted him. aud anoarentlv forced
the quarrel on him. Coroner Miohell was
notified, and a jury impannelled and au
inquest will bo held this evouinr. An
autopsy was held aud the right ventricle of
the heart was pierced through. There wera
iour cuts, one in the back, two in tha brmat
and one in the neck.
Tho following is the verdict of tho cor
oner's jury in the killing of Edwards men.
We, the jury impanelled by the coroner
to inquire into tbe cause of tho death of
Richard Edwards, find that said Edwards
came to his death by wounds inflicted by a
knife in the bands of one James Morton,'
and tbat a crime has been committed, and

Abont Examination. '
In looking over a list of questions open
which our teacher wero recently examined
as a test of their efficiency as teachers,
which list also contains some rulings and
instructions from our state board of educa
tion a few facts present themselves tltat are
worthy of attention.
One might wo'.l suppose from the amount
of "red tape" applied to our teachers, that
our state legislature had been taxed to its
utmost, in euacting laws for the prosecution
of those engaged in the thankless occupation
of teaching. The young man wbo fits him
self for the medical profession, wbo is in
trusted with the lives and health 6f his
fellow-men, is never subjected to an exam
ination after he has entered into the practice
of his profession. The youug man who fits
himself for tho legal profession, who is in
trusted with tho liyes, liberty and property
of his clients, is never subjected to an ex
amination after baviug been admitted to
practice law. And why should the individ
ual wbo has studied with a view of teach
ing, and engages in that profession, bo
made an exception. An individual wbo
has never taught school may be found per
fect in bis examination and have been grad
uated from Yale, yet he is entitled only to
a third grade certificate, and at tbe end of
a year be is required to piss a like examina
tion, and at the end of two yean he is
again required to pass an examination, and
at the closo of three years he may again be
called upon to pass another examiuation,
each time at an expense of $10, or more,
and two and a half days of careful labor.
Again, he is required to attend a teachers
institute at least once each year, at an aver
age expense of $10, and labor as muoh of
tbe remainder of the time as he can find
employment for $30 or $35 per'month, and
ooara arouna among ins pupils, surely our
legislature has succeeded in making this an
enticing field for those seeking a profession.
But the legislature has not done enough,
the state board steps in with a scries of
rales tor the government of the examina
tions that are equally odious. Each teacher
is required to be present at tbe commence
ment of the examination and during it
entire continuance, or be is liable to be
ruled out. He is watched as closely as if
ho were a thief, and before receiving his
certificate is required to sign the following:
'1 do hereby curtity, that pnor to this ex
amination, 1 had no knowledge of the ques
tions aud have neither given nor received
any aid during the progress of the same."
Thus a teacher who has received aid and is
honest enough to acknowledge it is ctst out.
while another dishonest enough to deny it
These laws and rulo which wera doubt
less intended to benefit our school are cer
tainly defeating the very end that they
wjre intended to accomplish, aud as fast as
our teachers can engage in other pursuits
less depreciating they are availing them
selves of the opportunity. I boing one whu
deserted the ranks of the oppressed, have
no personal grievances to offer, but if we
wish our public school system to prosper,
we must raise tho dignity of the profession
of teaching and make it more remunerative.

At 0:30 yesterday evening (Sunday) a
stabbing affray occurred in which Neil Mo-
Leod, of the Cosmopolitan, was injured,
but not seriously. It soein that J. B.
Ramsey having been repeatedly through
the day refused drink ,at tho Cosmopolitan
became more and more abusive, and in the
interim, between hi demand, 'obtaining
liquor by tome means, returned late in the
evening to further increase the row and waa
forcibly expelled from the building.' He -had
after picking himself up proceeded on
his way home but a short distfeoc, when ho
began again his string of bi:se to the an
noyance of the nefghly r. McLeod fol
lowed bim (ip and takirg him by the shoul
der shoved him on V" ,rd his bouse in tha
west end. At ti- 'same time, Ramsey -struck
him a sharp .blow on the left arm '
and McLeod knocked him down when -Ramsey
again struck him, while down,
twice. - McLeod says that at the first strike :
he did not imagine the presence ot a knife,
but the two" consequent stab were palpable. '
He called to bystanders to take Ramsey
home and himself weut to his room.. Luck
ily Dr. Hollister was 'in town and being
called dreesed Mr. McLeod's injuries. The
stab on the arm was a light one as was tha
one on the left hip; but the one on tho
right leg on the inside was a cloje shave for
the femoral artery and needed but little ur
gihg to prove fatal.
. Ramsey is the same man who was blown
op by a permature blast soma two years
ago at Moro by which mischance ho lost au
eye. For the past few days be has been
