Happily all the pnssengors and
crew, numbering some eight hundred
people, weie tnken off the ill-fateil
Oregon hoforc she went down off
Long Island the other day. Of tho
cargo the only thing of tin value
yet saved, beyond a few mail bugs,
is the diamonds which the had
on bouid. These are of great value,
being Mild to be worth $1,000,000.
We think wu may take it for gt anted
that claims for sidvagu sendees will
be made. It is true the North
Gctinan Lloyds, to whom the lcscu
ing steamer," the Fulda, belongs, are
reDOitcd to have said, very gcnci-
ously, that they weie only too happy
to have been instrumental in saving
so manv lives, and that they waived
all claiiu for salvage. Hut even if
this statement be literally conect,
two other -essels, a pilot boat and a
schooner, played an important part
in tho saving 'of the passengers, and
claims for salvage services are,
therelote, highly ptobahle. In these
eiicumstatiees it, may be of interest
to consider how thu at ions inteiests
would be affected by such a claim.
In the Ihst place, the award of
the coutts would doubtless be a
liberal one ; for though sotno of the
ngredients such as the risk in
curred by the salvors, the skill
shown in rende'fing the services and
the time and labor occupied of
salvage services were piescnt in but
small quantities, others, viz.: the
degree of danger from which the
lives or property are rescued and
the value of the pioperty saved,
were considerable. The saving of
human life counts for much in the
assessing of salvage services. But,
in the second place, who is to pay
the sum awarded? The ship, or the
cat go, or both? Not the ship, for
she is at the bottom of the sea, a
total loss. Not thu ship-owner, for

the liability to pay for salvage
services is not a general, personal
liability, but is limited to tjje value
of the'propeity saved, and the ship
owners' pioperty, in this case, is
lost. The salvage award in respect of
both the property and the lives saved
can only be had out of the value of
the woods saved that is the dia-
At the first blush this doctrine
that the owneis of the diamonds,
and they alone, should be the people
to i enumerate the salvois for their
services, not only in respect of the
diamonds, bit .also in respect of tho
lives, may appear strange-, tirul l,cr
haps inequitable. Such, however,
is the law. When lives and cargo
ate salved fioin a ship, but the ship
is totally lost, the owners of the
cargo are liable to pay salvage in
lespect of the lives, and the owners
of the lost shin arc not liable to con
tribute to the payment. The theory
is that in case of life salvagu the
payment is made, not becausn of
any benefit conferred upon him who
pays, but lamer iiccause oi euu in
terest the community has in en
couraging the saving of life. It may
be that the diamonds will not hao to
bear the whole buidcn of the salvage.
Further attempts are to be made to
salve caigo now in the hold of the
Oregon, and, should they be suc
cessful, the cargo brought up will
also have to contijbutc to tic life
salvage. A similar case occurred
off our coast some ycais ago. The
German steamer Schiller was lost.
Some boats saved the lives of some
ol the passengers and crew. 'Die
Schiller had a large amount of specie
on board, and this was aftorward
iccovered, but not by the people
who saved the lives. "The owners,
master and crew of the boats were
held to be entitled to salvage out of
the proceeds of the specie.
W e have spoken of the owners ot
the diamonds as the persons who
pay for the life salvage. It docs
not, however, ultimately come out
of their pockets, but out of their
underwriter's, salvage being a loss
rpcoverablc under a marine policy.

A CURIOUS CASE.
Btntlbo tile Chief Justice, silting on
tho authority of the Lieutenant
Governor in council ns a ttoyal Com
missioncr nnd not as tho Presiding
Judge of the highest court of tho
Province, the question arises ns to
whether or nor ho may bo freely
criticised in the latter capacity.
There does not seem to be nny law,
Hnglish or Canadian, that piotects a
judge from newspaper criticism, ex
cept when acting under his commis
sion as such, nnd the Chief Justice
is puzzled over the case, lie held a
conference with his three associates
on the Hench privately to-day, and
it is reported that they could not
agree upon the point at issue. Ue
lleving that the position it has taken
is tenable, the Mreo ivets lias re
newed the attack, so that some
action on the pint of the Chief
Justieu is unavoidable. S. V.
DHITISH COLONIAL POSSESSIONS.
A member of the Royal Geograp
hical Society writes to the China
Thu British Islands, the central
seat of the empiie, possess an area
of 121,115 squat e miles and a popu
lation of a0,-JO0,000, but the colonial
and foicign possessions of the empire
represent an area of land of over
7, 1100,000 square miles, and a popu
lation of 10,485,000. The extent
of the land compiised in the colonial
and foicign possessions s thus
sixty-one times as large as the
central islands of the empiie, and a
population a little inoic than one
half that of the patent community.
With the addition ot India the
empire represented an area ot
8,001,254 sqniuo miles, and a popu
lation of .'115,885,000. With regard
to the revenue and public debt,
while the icvenuc of the Biilish Isles
was 88,000,000. and the public
debt 710,000,000., the entire
revenue of the colonial and foicign
possessions, exclusive of India, was
1-J.05o.000.. or nearly halt the
revenue of the British Islands.
The entire debt of the colonial
possessions, exclusive of India, was
185,350,000., or something less
than the fourth pait of the debt of
the centre kingdom. The levcnue
of India was only 8,000,000. less
than the revenue of the Central
Government, and its debt less than
a fouith pait of the debt of the
home community. The value of the
trade ol the Colonial possessions ex
clusive of India, was close upon
24.1,000,000., or more than a third
part of the value of the home trade.
The value of tho trade of India to
the value of the home tiade was as
142,000,000. to 085,000,000. Air.
Service, the Premier of Victoria,
anticipated that in half a century
the Australian Colonics will possess
a population of 50,000,000., and in
that sonso will constitute a second
United States in the southern hemi
sphere. If tho present latp of in
crease of these Colonics weie con
tinued, that number would be ex
ceeded. The population of Great
Bi itain and Ireland was at tlic pre
sent time sevep times more than it
was in the Protectorate of Cormwell.
But including the inhabitants of the
United States, the number ol people
in new lands who have descended
from the old stock in the British
Islps was floubjo thftt of the number
which remains in tho mother coun-ti'y.

AVinniped, Apill 10.A ciirious
case is occupying the legal nnd
judicial mind 'of this city. His
lordship. W. Walbridge, the Chief
Jiifatico of the Court of Queen,H
Bench, is sitting as a Royal Com
missioner investigating the chaiges
against tho Manitoba Premier, and
ob such lie has been adversely ciiti
cised by tho Yfee J'ress, a news
paper which lias printed ati otlitorpl
plainly insinuating that tho Commis
sioner is favoring the leader of tho
Government in his rulings and deci
sions. It frankh asserts tho belief
that tho Commissioner is moved by
partisan considerations, nnd tlmti in
consequence, the inquiry will como
short of public expectation and of
justice, Such comment concerning
the Chief Jjisticcs on the Queen's
Jicneli in ipfprcnco to his or their
Judicial acts would bo contempt of
court of tho most cKtieino charnclor
ami would bo punishable by im
prisonment without tho option of a

duty of tho judge thus crltlcisod to
summon tho offending editor befoio

punishment, but in Hie present in-
TO CURE STAMMERING.
Dr. Dio Lewis in his magazine
gives a uilo for the cure of stammer
ing which is certainly simple enough,
nnd which the doctor says has cured
three-fourths of all the cases that he
has treated. The stammerer is
made to mark the time in his spoech,
just as it is ordinarily done in sing
ing. At first ho is to beat on every
syllable. He should begin by read
ing ono of tho Psalms, sti iking tho
finger on tho knee at every word.
"Time can be maiked," says the
doctor, "by striking the linger on
tho knee, by hitting the liinb
against tho foreflngor,' or by moving
the largo too in the boot." The
writer believes the worst case of
stuttering can be cured if the victim
read an hour every day, with thor
ough practice of this remedy, and
