One of the several crimes in St. Lawrence county's record for the past few months has been cleared up. This is the famous Lisbon assault case. Luella Scott, the alleged injur- ed party, is reported to have made a full confession before Justice McRos tie, of Ogdensburg, followed by her marriage to her affianced lover, George Gregory. The confession completely exonerates Homer Moore, who was thought by some to be the criminal as charged by the girl at the time. This is a scathing rebuke to various persons and a few papers that have made great efforts to fix the crime upon an innocent person. District Attorney Hale seems to be all right.

So Rumored In Havana, According t o a DUpatch to Paris. Paris, France, Deo. 21.—A dispatch from Havana says that while the in- surgents report the execution of Lleut.- Col. Ruiz after court martial, rumors are also current that he i s still living. BEET SUGAR. A great impetus is being given to the beet sugar industry in various parts of the country. Experiments in the culture of sugar beets have been preceding in many localities in which agricuLurists never before thought of making such tests, and in nearly all instances the result has exceeded the expectations. The sue cess attending the factories now be- ing operated in Nebraska and Cali fornia has had a general awakening effect. To come nearer home, several counties are preparing to follow the example of Oneida and build a plant next year. W e understand that sev- eral up-to-date farmers around Mas- sena are to try the experiment of raising sugar beets next season, and w e p*ediQt that within three years a t o turn the huge grinders being fur- nished by the St. Lawrence Power Company from the world's greatest power house on the banks of the Grasse river. There seems t o be no good reason why St. Lawrence coun- t y should not raise as good sugar beets as any locality. In Oneida county the climate is quite as frigid as our own, while no better soil is to be found in the state than on the banks of the St. Lawrence. The establish- ment of a home sugar industry inde- pendent of outside supplies would S2em to have a great influence upon the political and economic questions ofthediy . The pioneers in this en- terprise were obliged to import their machinery but it is now built here and at a lower cost than is charged by foreign makers. Thus the ma- chine shops will be kept busy. Enor- mous sums of money, amounting in some years to over $100,000,000 will be retained in this country and dis- tributed chiefly to the farmers This cannot help but assist very material- ly in establishing a permanent bal- ance of trade in favor of this country and greatly add to the nation's wealth Official Report of tbe Execution. Havana,' Dec. 21.—The official state- ment as t o the execution by the insur- gents of Lleut.-Col. Joaquin Ruiz, aide- de-camp of Capt.-Gen. Blanco, says that he was shot last Friday, by order of the insurgent commander Alejandro Rodriguez, with the approval r.i the in- surgent colonel, Nestor Aranguren, whom he went to see, to induce him to accept the Spanish scheme for autono- my. The general opinion here is that it was a barbarous act. Wcyler'i Plan of Campaign. Madrid, Spain, Dec. 21.—The National gives prominence to a double-leaded editorial, under the caption of \Wey- ler,\ to the effect that the latter's prin- cipal mission in life a t the present mo- ment is to defend the army and his command in Cuba against the \insults\ alleged to have been contained in President McKinley's recent message to Congress, and that he will energeti- cally protest to the Minister for War- Gen. Correa—and to the Queen Regent against these \insults at the same time justifying the acts of the army. • METHODIST. The members of the Sunda schu will render the following program < Christmas night.

The indications, however, are still that the treaty will not be ratified. ST. JOHN'S EPISCOPAL.
