Chicago, Ilia, Nov. 15.���John A. Drake,
treasurer of tbe Indiana, Illinois and Iowa
Railroad Company, was sandbagged and
robbed of $20,000 ia ihe office of the Com.
pany on the ninth floor of the Rookery
building at 7 o'clock to-day. Mr. Drake
had the money ia a little hand satchel, and
was preparii g to go out on the road to pay
employees. He bad placed the cash ia the
valise and was about to leave the office when
two men stole up behind him and
felled him to tbe floor by several hard
blowa on the head. Tbe treasurer was
knocked nearly insensible and ere he could
move a dig. r in liis defense, he claims, tbe
thieves tore the satchel from his hands and
rushed out cf ihe office slam mine the door
as they went. They iode down in an elevator very unconcernedly and made their
escape. Mr. Drake notified the Central
Station as soon as possible and by 8 o'clock
every detective that Inspector Shea could
spare was put to work on tbe case. It was
the most daring sensational rubbery that
has occurred in many years. Occurring as
it did io one of tbe best known office buildings in tha city, right in the very heart of
the business district, the crime caused
the greatest excitement The early
hour selected by the thieves is all that prevented their immediate capture. It has
been the custr m of the treasurer to pay tbe
employees of the road in checks. Had the
custom been continued the startling robbery
would not have been attempted in all prob-
abilny, but within Ibe past week officials; of
the company decided to pay the men in
currency. From ths story told by Treasurer
Drake it appears evident that the robbers
knew of this change. In tome way they
learned that Mr. Drake had intended to call
at the office get the money and take an
early train. They must have followed him into
tbe building around the north corridor
of the ninth floor, and waited until he had
secured the money from the vault. They
then sprang upon him, struck him aevoral
swift blows ou the head with a weapon,
presumably a sandbag, and when he sank to
the floor insensible, soized thn precious
handbag and successfully escaped into the
street. Where ihey went then, the detectives are trying to find out. Every effort
was made to keep the robbery a seoret. Mr.
Whitehead, general agent of the road, waa
found at the office in the Rookery at 12
o'clock and refused at first to give any details of the robbery, but finally aaid that
the amount of money stolen was about
$20,000. Mr. Drake baa been with the Indiana, Illinois and Iowa railroad ever since
it was organized. He and his father, the
president, are part owners of the property.
Unofficial Speed Trial Develops Over 22
Boston,Mass. Nov. 15���The U. S. Cruiser
Columbia was given an unofficial spin this
afternoon, under forced draught over the
measured course, between Cape Ann and
Cape Porpoise, which is a trifle less thau 44
knots long, and she made the unprecedented
speed of 22 87 knots an hour, an excess of
187 knots over the contraot requirement of
21 knots aa hour. This splendid feat waa
accomplished under conditions of wind,
weather and sea, that could not be improved
upon. Iu order to take advantage
of the tidal conditions it was necessary
that the Columbia should be gotten out of
tbe harbor early and Captain Sargent,
therefore, weighed anchor soon afier 2
o'clock thia morning, and pot away from the
rendezvous in President Roads.- The - huge
ship was anchored just outside tbe harbor
until nearly 8 o'clock, when after getting
Commander Cooper and Naval Constructor
Featoron aboard she started toward Cape
Ann about 30 miles distant. Theae two
officers, with O.ptain Matthews and Chief
Euginoer Farmer, were the only members of
tbe trial bjard on the ship, Admiral Bell-
knap, Commander Ciok and Lieutenant Commander Hempbill preferring to defer visiting the ship until Thursday, when the
official tiill will probably be made. The
first of the eight white buoys which mark
the straight line of the course was passed at
about 9:45 a.m. The speed was gradually
increased until * iihin a few miles of the end
of the course by which time the boilers and
engines had been worked up to "forced
draught" pitch. Seven eighths of the trip,
however, was mads under natural draught.
The time of the trip up the
course was a little over two hours
twenty and three-quarter minutes, one
hour being the average. This fine performance mads everybody aboard feel that something wonderful would be developed on the
return trip. A very wide turn was made
and then at 12:45 p. m. the line was crossed
on the record breaking journey. In the
meantime Cramps and (JUief Engineer John
Patterson, who has oharge of ths engine and
fire rooms, had completed preparations for
forced draught, the condition whioh develops every atom of exertion tha', can be
got out of the boilers and machinery. The
pioked force of maobinests, firemen, and
coalpaasera, who had carefully prepared
themselves for tbe four hours' ordeal they
were to jindergo, were shut out from all
communication with the upper portion of
the ship. Every opening through whioh air
anight pass except the blowers, was carefully
closed aad under no circumstances uoless
illness of u man, would Eugineer Palterson
consent to the opening of even the smallest
hatchway. The three immense engines
whi.h turned tbe ahafis connected
with the three screws were working at a speed of 134 revolu'ione
a'minute. Soon afier the startiug linn was
Crossed, this speed was increased to 135 re-
volu'ions a minute aud litter the maxium
velocity of 130 was reached. Chief Engineer Towns, U. S. Navy, who designed
the engines and who wasiu the eugine-room,
during the run says the average under forotd
draught was 132 revolutions eace minute.
Steadily like a beautiful piece of machinery,
the Columbia plougtd her way through the
water her speed being almost equal to that
of a railroad train. Time computations were
being almost continuously made by everybody on deck aud there was general
belief that more than 22 knots
would be made. In the pilot-house,
Coptain Mathews and commander
Cooper carefully observed the effect produced by the tremendous energy the en
gines were exerting. Engineer Farmer was
performing duty in the after part of the
ship. There came a display of excitement,
however, when the seventh buoy had been
passed, und the cruiser was making hor last
desperate effort, everybody on deck stood
with timepiece in hand, eagerly awaiting
the hoarse whistle, which was to announce
that the goal line had been crossed. The
moment the ���ound was beard there was a
general scene of rejoicing among the men
who had participated io the greatest speed
effort ever shown by a warship.
The finish was made at 2.08 49, the time
for the run being one nour and fifty-five
minutes and thirty four seconds. . The
course is 43 968 knots and this would give
speed average of 22.87 knots an hour. The
fact should be taken into consideration that
there were no provisions ia tbe days tun for
tidal corrections such as will be made when
the official trip comes off. The tidal corrections at moat are not expected to deduct
more than 1.100 of a knot from her speed.
This would leave to-days performance at
more than 22 and three quarter knots. The
feature ef to-days remarkable run was the
steadiness of tho ship. Old navy men on
board say they never saw a vessel behave
belter. The sea was not more than ordinarily disturbed by the swift passage of
tho huge cruiser over its surface, and there was an entire absence of
either rolling or pitching. This, according
ing to the experts, it due to the fineness of
the lines on �� hich the ship is constructed.
After tbe race was finished the machinery
was brought back to its natural draught and
the cruiser steamed back to her anchorage,
which was reached at about 3:30 o'clock.
The three engines to-day developed about
21,000 horsepower, which iB 1,000 less than
their estimated oapacity. It is claimed that
ths engines are capable of 136 revolutions a
minute, which velocity, if obtained, ought
to produce a speed of not less than 23
knots an hour, making the Columbia absolutely faster than anything afloat. Eveo if
to-day's speed is not exceeded the cruiser
will earn for her builders a speed premium
of $350,000.
After tho President's Scalp.
San Francisco, Nov. 15.���In tbe leading
editorials on the Hawaiian situation this
morning, Examiner (Democrat) and Chronicle (Republican) call for the impeachment
of President Cleveland. If while Congress
was in session the former says he scorned to
consult it and sent his herald to Honolulu to
declare war between the United States and
the Provisional Government of the Islands,
whose regularly commissioned Minister bad
been officially received at Washington, then
Crover Cleveland should be impeached and
ousted from the Presidency.
The Chronicle rays: When instructions
were given Minister Willis Congress was in
session. Mr. Cleveland informed Congress
through committee that he had no further
communication to make. He was at that
moment secretly preparing or rather he had
secretly prepared to make war upon and
overthrow the Government of a friendly
State. Congress alone has the power under
constitution to declare war. President
Cleveland for his usurping should be im-

Richmond, Va., Nov. 15.���Mrs. Julia
Reynolds, of Winston, N.C., has written to
Governor McKinley that her 15-year-old
son, J as. E. Hall, is held in slavery on

New York, Nov. 15.-The sales at the
stock exchange   were   only   189,077 shares,
and represented merely the operations of the
room traders and   othor   professionals.    At
the start the market was generally  higher,
with American Sugar in the lead.   Improve-
ment ranged J to J   per   oent.   but   before
eleven o'clock a raid was made on Western
Union   and   Manhattan   the   former being
forced down to 86 and the latter to 125.    A
decline of lg aad 2J per cent,   respectively.
The   grangers  also   suffered,  St. Paul and
Burlington   and   Quincy    beiDg    equally
weak     uuder   heavy   sales.     Vanderbilt's
stocks    were   weaker     than    for    some
time       past,       New       York       Central
selling down to 101 and Canada Southern to
48^.    The industrials outside of distillers
were   weak.     National   cordage   preferred
declined to 50.     Near the close there was a
rally of small propositions   and the market
left off barely steady.     The net changes for
the day were  merely factional  either way
except   in   the   case   of    Western   Union,
General Electric, New York  Centra',  Canada Southern, New   Jersey  Central,   which

Whioh is the Greater Crime?
Little Rock, Ark., Nov. 15.���Word
reached hero this afternoon of the horrible
execution or a negro named D. T. Nslson, at
Warner last night by a mob oompoted entirely of negroes. Last week Nelson murdered Ben Beits, a negro, and since that
time he has been confined in the small jail
at Varner, which ia a little station on the
Iron Mountain railroad, and in a sparsely
settled country. The friends of the murdered man gathered at the j*il last
night, and breaking down the door dragged
the trembled wretch out in the rain, and
darkness. They tied a rope about hia neck
and dragged him to a u ee where he waa
quickly swung up. In the meantime the
poor wretch yelled for mercy and proclaimed
his innocence. The evidence against him
waa too atrong, however, and the mob
turned a deaf ear to bis appeals. As soon
as his body was fastened to
the tree, the mob fired a volley
of bullets into tbe slowly revolving figure.
They then gathered a lot of wood and set
fire to it. The flames quickly reached tbe
suspended figure, and his clothing ignited
aud his flesh began to burn. The mob then
withdrew after warning all ooncerned not
to extinguish the flames. The rain whioh
waa pouring down quenched the flames and
saved the body from being burned. Early
this morning the body of Nelson waa foaad
lying iu the jail yaid with trie olothing
parily burned iff. The author,ties are trying tolourn the identity of the mob, but
with poor prospect of success.

Beg to recommend their Large and Assorted
Stock of
Proof of His Sanity.
Chicago, Nov. 15.���Lawyer A. S. Trude
is preparing an article for a magazine presenting a theory as to Pendergast's responsibility for his act when he assassinated
Carter Harrison. Mr. Trude's theory is that
Pendergast was sane when he committed the
deed. He oites the fact that the man was
animated by a sense of fear in fleeing from
the servant at the house of Mayor Harrison.
He cites cases where men who have committed crime while insane, appeared to have no
sense of tear and would even rush into danger. The cleverness with whici. Pendergast
���ought to ensure his own safety is cited as
proof of his sanity.

A  Fourteen-Year-Old   Boy Holds   Up a
New York, Nov. 15.���A Chester, 111.,
special says:���Turnkey Ed. Bartha of the
Southern Penitentiary was confronted by
David L. Douglas, a fourteen-year-old
youth, who placed the muzzle of a revolver
under tbe guard's noae and said, "Hand
over the keys or I will kill you." Birtha
gave up the keys. At this juncture keeper
Tinapple appeared, and Douglas fired at
him. This alarmed ihe other keepers, who
came rushing to the scene. Douglas had

He Had Many  Visions.
New York, Nov. 15.���A Time* special
from Rondout, N. Y., says: Ira Krum, a
fanatic, who for years has claimed to have
revelations from God and has livt d a hermit's life, died at his home in Snyder Hollow among the Catskills last night. Hia
death ia thought to have been caused by
starvation. He announced some time ago
that hs had had a vision in which he had
been told that if he should fast forty daya
he would be able to walk, upon the water.
He fasted a number of days and then attempted to walk on the water and was nearly drowned. Not long after this he deolared
ihe had had another vision in which he had
been commanded to fast 20 days. Then he
started on this fast, but became ao broken
down that the neighbors compelled him to
take nourishment, but the intervention
came too late. Krum was exremely religious and claimed to have many visions.
Delivered to any part of the Oity for
Russian Convicts Appeal.
San Francisco, Nov. 15.���The ten arrested Russian convicts who escaped from
Siberia and wero brought here by two whaling vessels to-day issue an appeal to the
dear U. S. people, in which they detail
what would become of them if they are returned to Siberia. They say they will be
starved, loaded with chains end lashed until
rivers of blood rnn on the ground. "It is
so cold there" the appeal says, "blond will
freeze on the ground like red ice. Then it
will be their fate to work at night in the
woods carrying great trees." If we don't
walk fast and out fast with axes, the statement continues, "They will flog us again,
then some more and in a few weeks we die.
While we are workiDg and dying slowly we
will be starved because we got away to your
country. No man in 8aghaliue eats so
much in seven days as one man in your jail
eats in one day. Rather than go back to
Russia we would stay in your jail."

He Carried It.
Three or four of us had closed our umbrellas and gathered under a store awning at
the lower end of Market street, Philadelphia,
tc wait for a grip car. Along came a colored man, carrying a faded and rent old umbrella, aud we aV noticed that he carried the
shelter tipried forward at such au au.'fle that
his feet were protected at the expense of his
"Stop, sir I" shouted the man at my left,
who had the look and bearing of a Judge.
"Yes, sah���what's wanted ?" queried the
colored man.
"I want to show you how to oarry au umbrella. Your toes are dry, while your back
Is all wet. I don't believe that oue person iu
fifty knows how to carry an umbrella so as
to get tho most protection out of it."
"It's au old one, sah."
"Yes, I see, but you don't grasp the handle
right.   Here���take mine."
"Yes, sah."
"Take the handle with your right hand,
and carry it ou a lino with your right shoulder.   There���that's better,"
"Can't git along wid sich stiffness, sah."
"Yes, you can. Now walk up to the corner and back. Hold the handle on a line
with your shoulder.   That's it���go ahead."
Tho negro marched off at a steady pacer
and while ho was stepping nil' tho gentleman
turned to us with:
"It's a knaek to shelter yourself under an
umbrella, particularly if it rains hard, and
the want of this knack provokes mo when I
see it."
We agreed with him, and the minutes
passed by and a car came down.
"Why, where did the nigger go to?" asked the owner of the uiiibre.ln.
Wo looked up and down, but he had disappeared. The man ran up tho street twe,
squares, but there was uo African carrying
a fine silk umbrella with a gold handle���not
as he could see. We started to rally him a
bit as we went up on the car, but he checked
us by saying:

Getting Even.
I had some important business to transact
with a merchant iu an Ohio town, but we
bad scarcely got seated in his private office
when iu came a drummer for a Chicago
house. He was probably new to the road,
and he wanted some ol his cheek shaved off.
He was politely informed that nothing whatever was wanted, but he talked and hung on,
aud had to be fairly turned out. In half an
hour he returned to the attack with a fresh
stock of gall, saying:
"I know you must want something, and
Vm bound to have un oilier."
Agnin he was turned away, and again be
returned to tho attack. The merchant was
now mad all the way through, but he concealed the fact and quietly remarked:
"Come to think of it, I do need a few
things.   Get out your oi'der book."
" Ah, ha! flaiew you would give me an
order if I hung on long enough !" exclaimed
the drummer. "Nothing like perseverance
in this profession."
The merchant ordered 2,000 pounds of
sugar, ten chests of tea, 1,000 pounds of
coffees, and a lot of other goods, figuring up
a good bill, and the drummer was on his high
heels as he withdrew. *���
"Pretty big order," I observed.
"No order at all," he replied.
"He'll mail it to Chicago to-night, and tomorrow I'll countermand by telegraph. Did

see. All the fun in this thing is not ou the

SAMUEL M. ROBINS, Superintendent
A New Method of Artificial Respiration.
Dr. Andrew H. Smith of this city,
writing in the Virginia Medical Monthly
for April, 181)0, describes an improved
method of performing artificial respiration. Two persons are required. The
patient lying ou the back, and, if possible, placed upon a table, one operator at
the head takes a hand in each of his and
draws the arms directly upward, with a
slow and steady pull, continuing the
traction until the maximum of thoracic
distention is obtained, which will require
about three seconds. This accomplished,
the traction is relaxed, without, however,
attempting to press the arms against the
sides. At this moment the other operator, who is kneeling or standing by the
side of the patient, presses with both
hands forcibly upon the chest in a direction backward and toward the median
line, so as to diminish both the depth and
the breadth of the lower half of the thorax. This pressure, like the traction, ia
to be made slowly and steadily and should
be continued until the maximum expiratory result is attained, say two seconds.
The pressure is then relaxed, and the
traction on the arms follows again immediately. In this way about twelve respiratory movements per minute will be
accomplished, under conditions giving
tlio largest excursion of the chost walls
attainable by manual procedure. It will
be seen that this is a combination of a
part of Sylvester's method with the
method of Howard. Sylvester's method
is defective, in that it does not provide
for efficient compression of the thorax,
the position of the operator at the head
of the patient making such compression
extremely difficult. Howard's plan, on
the other hand, does not provide for any
expansion of the chest beyond the cadaveric position, and is, upon the whole,
much less effective than Sylvester's A
combination of the two, carried out by
two persons, secures a very considerable
approach to the results of natural respiration, the action of the diaphragm
alone being unrepresented. Another
very great advantage is the division of
labor���either of tho other methods being
exceedingly fatiguing to the Operator.���

Fashions  and Customs of the Dark Con*
There is a sad monotony in our European fashions. Even the so-called changes are often fugues on a trivial theme,
or thinly-disguised variations and reproductions of forgotten trivialities. Our
now communications and lively interest
in the gentle inhabitants of Central
Africa may suggest some startling novelties. Besides the graceful extravagances of their head-dress���which, however,
hardly beat those of the seventeenth and
eighteenth centuries, reconstructed for
the public edification a few years since by
Mr. Lewis Wingfield, and which may yet
live again���there are many varieties
among our new African proteges of the
way they wear their heads. The ruling
families of the Munbutlu tribe flatten their
skulls so as to elongate their heads. The
Bari apply pressure first in front of the
ears so as to heighten the head in that
place. The Beli distinguish themselves
by extracting the four front teeth of the
lower jaw. Then there is a variety of
ways of wearing a tail, which beat the
Court train of the modern beauty in simplicity and perhaps in grace. The Madi
wear cotton tails, which swing when
they dance. Elsewhere a lady limits
her costume to a twig arranged as a tail,
and manages to seat horself at a court
fun: ti m * with th 8 appendage in a
graceful an 1 dignities m'anntrr without
throwing it over her arm, and
with the intervention jf a chamberlain.
In the matter of eating, they are catholic
and omnhorous, and nothing comes
amiss, from a banna���which furnishes
food, and when fermented, drink���to a
fat pig or a deceased wife's sister, who
give little trouble there to legislators.
Owing to their reticence as to their burial
customs���for which dark reasons are
suggested���it is difficult to pursue this
branch of anthropological osteological
research. It will be seen, from the graver gleanings which we publish elsewhere,
that there is much to interest the physician and the anthropologist, Dr. Emin

When the history of the several presidential terms which hive existed since the war
will have boon written hy the historian of
the future Grover Cleveland will, we feel
fully convinced, receive that due meed of
praise and commendation which his administration of the affairs of the great Republic
so well deserve and which is at present
withheld from him by even journals of the
Democratic stripe. The recent reverses
which his party hivo received at tho polls
and the tidal wave of Republican victories
which have swept over some of the states
have all been laid at the door
of Cleveland. It may be true that his
protective policy as outlined io his message
to Congress may have hid something to do
with the Republican victory and miry have
alienated a large workingmans vote from the
hitherto overwhelming Democratic majority
but if these protective ideas of tne President
be Bins surely they are also the sins of the
Damocratio jarly proper. His attitude on
the Sherman Ltw and the stand which he
took in regnad to tho enforcement of the
Geary Act are laid down as the main factors
which woiked for evil in the late contests
and loud and angry have been the complaints
of Democratic Journals more especially of
the Western portion of the Republic. To tbe
outside world theee attacks upon their
ohief appear to be both uncalled
for but also aslackinginthecommonest prin,
ciplcs of gratitude. To those who have
watched the career of Grover Cleveland in
the past one thing has been most apparent.
He is a man who before taking action upon
any subject of importance gives the subject
his undivided attention. He probes the
matter to the very bottom and after having
once established his case by a careful diagnosis sets to work with but one object in
view���to apply the proper remedies to affect
a cure. No party exigency���no threats or
cavilling���no protests or supplications can
swerve him from what he considers is his
bounden course to pursue. Republicans
and Republican journals have been wont to
hold him up as a man unfitted by education
and talent for t he posit ion whioh he occupies.
He has been described as a man of mediocre
education and as a lawyer only in name but
so far he has proved to them aud to the
world that be is a man who has but one
singleness of purpose and that ia to carry
on the business of his ofSoe in a manner
whioh will reflect credit and honor to Ihe
great country over which he has in the
course of events been chosen to be the
No better evidence of this can be had than
his desire to undo the great wrong imposed
upon the people of Hawaii by his predecessor in power who, if he did not directly connive at the deposition of Queen Lilioukalani, assisted indirectly to that
end. Since it has been made
apparent that it is the intention
of Cleveland's Administration to restore the
-Queen to her former position many Republican papers have been loud in their oucry
against the President the San Francisco
Chronicle and Examiner going so far as to
ask for his impeachment for no better reason
than that he desires to honorably wipe out a
blot from the psges of Americm history
which cannot be erased by any other prooeis
than that proposed by President Cloveland.
The world pasaesses a number of oU men
at present whose vigor and activity, if
somewhat abated by time, still preserve for
them commanding influence in their respective walks of life. Among these are
Pope Leo, Gladstone, B'smark, Custelr,
Kossuth, Tolstoi, Verdi, Ibsen, King Christian, Li Hung Chang, Sir Henry Parke,
Oliver Wendell Homes, Fred Douglas and
Paul Kruger. De Lessrps was until two
years ago another of the grand old men, but
ihe hss failed greatly of late.
The Prince of Wales has just rounded out
his fifty-second year. With the Queen in
fairly good health, the prophets who declared twenty years ago that he would
never come to the throne have greater
-chances than ever in favor of their predictions. Though he may miss the honor of
being enrolled among Biitish monaroha he
has had an uncommonly good time, and as
heir apparent he has filled an exacting position with trreat tact and judgment.���San
Francisco Chronicle.
A contemporary remarks:     " In view of
the prohibition movement in Canada the
plan adopted in dealing with the liquor
question in a Norwegian town is interesting.
The people of Berggen have contracted with
a company to supply beer and spirits in the
town. The shareholders receive just 5 per
cent and the surplus profits go to the authorities, to be expended on something of
public advantage. By the money thus
earned a beautiful park has been laid out,
an institution for poor boys has been established, and a road called the Drinkers' Road
has been constructed."
Constant practice appears to be making
(ireat Britain perfect in the management of
her little wars of which she has had su :h a
number in the last century. When we consider the blundering of the Afghan
war, the war with the Zulus and the sacrifice of Gordon; the present war in Africa
seems conducted with neatness and despatch.
Whether we may ascribe it to M r. Cecil
Rhodes, the energetic President of the
South African Company, or the fact that
the English Government haa let it severely
alone allowing those on the spot to conduct
the war as circumstances might suggest, or
to the unexpected weakness of King Loben-
gula, or not, the war is nearing completion
with a rapidity as pleasing ss it was unexpected.
If Lord Aberdeon took occasion in his
address to the St. Andrew's Society, Toronto, to flatter the pride of his countrymen
a little, he had very good grounds for doing
bo. A few yeara ago when Lord Dufferin
was Governor-General of Canapa, the greatest number of the most important and responsible posts in the Empire were held by
Irishmen, but since then the shamrock has
given way to the thistle. Witness, Lord
Aberdeen himself in Canada; Lord Elgin,
now Viceroy of India; Mr. Gladstone, Prime
Minister of England; Lord Rosebery, over
foreign affairs; Mr. Campbell-Bannerman,
Miniater of War; Lord Kintore, Governor of
South Australia; Sir R. W. Duff, Governor
of New South Wales; Lord Hopetoun, Governor of Victorio; Lord Glasgow, Governor
of New Zealand; Sir Robert Hamilton, Governor of Tasmania; Sir Henry Loch, Governor of tbe Cape of Good Hope and High
Commissioner of South Africa, and many
A Chicago correspondent of theJNew York
Journal of Commerce, has been counting up
what he calls the gains and losses of the
World's Fair, the oountries and states that
have derived practical benefit from their exhibits and those which have not. He thinks
there wai a certain monotony about the
agricultural exhibits of the States located in
the Valley of the Mississippi that caused
them to lose their attraction. The New
England and some of the other Eastern
States, he believes, derived little benefit
from making agricultural exhibits, as they
were so much inferior to those made by the
Western States. But what says he of Canada iB this:
"Without doubt Canada will be a great
gainer by the Fair. Its exhibits in every
department were a surprise to those unfamiliar with Canadian r tonrcea in grain,
fruit, live stock; vegetables, fish, lumber and
This entirely unsolicited and voluntary
piece of testimony is valuable. There cannot be a doubt that the money spent on exhibiting Canadian excellencies at the Fair
has been, and will be, amply repaid to us.

VICTORIA, B. C. Nov. 15.���Harry Morten
returned to-night from Vancouver, whither
lie had gone to stand his trial at Court of
Assize upon the charge of assault, preferred in July last by Andrew Leamy, of
Westminster. The incident upon which the
prosecution rested is familiar in all its details. The Viotoria lacrosse team played a
match with the Westminsters at the Royal
City on July loth, in which match Morton
had for his "check" a man named Lewis.
The latter during the game claim "d a foul
and injuries thereby. After the match
Morton was arrested on the charge
of attempted murder. Thia information
waa aubaequently amended to assault with
intent to do grievous bodily harm, and a
change of venue from New Westminster to
Vancouver having been granted, an indictment for assault was laid before the court of
assize opening at Vancouver this morning,
Justice Drake presiding. In his charge lo
the Grand Jury His Lordship briefly touched upon the various items composing the
docket, and reaching the Morton case said:
"This is a very peculiar case to bring before
a court of law. The defendant, it is alleged,
while playing in a game of lacrosse between
the Victoria and New Westminster teams,
struck the plaintiff on the head for the purpose of securing the ball instead of checking
him properly. As to the correctness of this
statement I can say nothing; although more
violence than is customary may have been
used; you all know lacrosse is a very rough
game. I leave the case in your hands, you
may oall witnesses if you like." Tne jury
retired and returning announced "no bill.''

Rev. Dr. James Stewart of Lovedale,
South Africa, ia visiting Viotoria, accompanied by Mrs. Stewart. He has been paying a holiday  oall to America, and whilst
here he has devoted special attention to tha
institutions for the education of the
Indians and negroes. Lovtdale is head
of a large missionary institution in
Kuffraria about 7C0 miles north-east of
Cape Town, an entirely undenominational
mission though maintained by the Free
Church of Scotland. Dr. Stewart has been
engaged in the work in Africa for 32 years;
he joined Dr. Livingstone on the Zambesi in
J 802 and has twice since then visited Central Africa. He is thoroughly conversant
with Africin affairs and of the| present war
he says: It was hound lo come sooner or
later. King Lobengula's territory is about
700 miles north of Capo Town and 400 miles
from the east emu. His subjects now
number perha-ps 110,000. Between
i hem and the coast, but still far
in the interior is Muslionalund, the
Mashonas uumbor about 50,000 and thty
have always been the prey of the Loben-
guclas. Their stronger neighbors King
Lobenguela gave the British South Africa
Company permission to hunt and to mine
gold in Mashonaland though excluding them
from his own particular territory, but the
operations of the Company were interfered
with by the invasions of the Lolienguelaa who
on one occadou slaughtered about 300
Mashonas before the Binishers' eyes. This
precipitated the war, a British force being
called on to drive out the invader*. That
is the war that is now being carried on with
small success owing to the small force employed by the British. The Lobenguelaa
are entitled to absolutely no sympathy for
they are only experiencing just, punishment
for their treatment of the Mai bonis.
Walter Jones & Co,
What Thoy Coat, Where They Are Caught
and How They Are Trained.
On a Sixth avenue elevated train the
other evening waa a short, thin man,
taDned evidently by exposure in the
tropics, says the New York Tribune.
He carried, covered over with a plaid
gingham apron, a curious old-fashioned
cage in which there was a fine young
green parrot. "This parrot," he said,
"is a young bird, and, as you see, well
trained. There are two ways of getting*
these birds, by trapping and by catching the young birds in the c .'St. A
trapped bird is wild and it takes two
years to train it, for it bites and fights
like a 'soger.' This young one was
trained in twelve months. Every six
weeks I go to Venezuela on a sailing
vessel and try to bring back fifty parrots with me. The Indians catch them
up the Orinoco river and whenever a
vessel comes into port there is a lively
scramble on the part of the natives who
have parrots or anything else to dispose
of. The training of parrots is a regular
business for many of the natives in the
seaport towns of Venezuela, and whenever I have touched at the ports of
Brazil or Colombia 1 found it much the
same, except that Brazilian parrots are
harder to get along the coast. Indians
do nearly all of the trapping, far up in
the interior.
"This parrot is for a friend of mine
on Forty-ninth street, to whom I have
promised one for two years, but never
eould pick up a really fine one. When
I am in port I have so little time I have
to take such birds as are offered. If I
were going to sell this one I should ask
110, although my regular price for a
young bird is 65. This is what the
bird fanciers pay me for them, and
they cost me ?4; that is what I paid for
this one six weeks ago at Laguayra.
He speaks Spanish, of course, and
swears like a trooper in a dialect of Indian and Spanish; his last owners in theJ
city of Laguayra have taught him all
the latest slang they knew.
"Yes," he continued, "$1 is all I make
on one of these parrots, while on a
trapped bird there is only 50 cents to
be made. I buy them for ?2 or $2.50
and sell them at 50 cents advance.
They get awful seasick on even an ordinary voyage and require as much at-
tion as a sick baby, and many of them
get so lonesome when they are shut up
alone in the hold that they die of a
broken heart, it seems to me.
"Oh, how easy they die," reflectively sighed the man. "On one trip I
wps bringing up seventy fine parrots
and when we were only three days out
they began to take sick and die.
The ship's doctor said it was a kind of
infectious pneumonia. At any rate
they all died but two. That was a bad
voyage for me."
Education In Iceland,
The only high school in Iceland is at
Seykjasik, and it has been in operation
for over a year. The principal subjects
taught are Icelandic in its grammar and literature, Danish, English, Slojd wood carving, arithmetic
und singing, to which from two to
eight hours a week are devoted, but
the foremost place in the educational
system is given to tailoring, by which
the hours from ten to two are occupied during four days a week. This is
because there are no tailors in Iceland,
and that the women must make the
men's clothes as well as their own-
Cooking is also practically taught.

The East Wellington Colliery.
A telegram was reoeived late on Tuesday
night by Mr. W. S. Chandler, local -superintendent, from Mr. K. D. Chandler, San
Francisco, managing owner, directing him
to wind up the affairs of the company and
close down the mines. Tho miners are to
remove all their working tools and the rails
are to be taken up and withdrawn. On receipt of the telegram Mr. W. S. Chandler
��t once communicated ils purport to the
late employees. Yesterday men wera busily
engaged in carrying out the instructions
forwarded, and a start was made in remov
ing the; rails. Today steam will be got
up on ihe hoisting engines to enable the men
to descend and remove their picks, drills
and other tools. There is a very general
expression of regret at the closing down of
these works. The property was first purchased in 1S82 Ciom the Westwood family
and in the mouth of September of the Bame
year the first shaft w is sunk by Robert
Dunn, under the superintendence of lint
indefaligable gentleman, Mr. Gabriel Win
gate, M.K,,of Astoria. The prospects at
the "winning" of the coal were extremely
good, the shaft having descended upon
pocket of good coal, but the extension of
the underground work after that period was
but a succession of bright prospects
followed by disappointments and reverses. In the face of difficulties
and hard lnok the company struggled on
spending large sums in prospecting aud de
veloping their property in the hope that
fickle fortune would favour thein with a
lucky turn of the wheel. One day the proprietors would meet with a lucky strike of
six feet and more of coal which would continue for a few days to be succeeded by
either faults, dirt or small nnpaying seams.
One satisfaction was in the quality of the
coal. It was as good as the best���and had
a great demand in the market and got a
top price. But quality without the quantity
would not keep a mine running. Up to date
no ceani of coal has as yet been tound to
justify tho managemet in keeping on the
work. The East Wellington Colliery has
hitherto enjoyed the reputation of paying
the highest wages, and from that fact alone
deserved well of the, working class and called
for some leniency from them at a time when
the mirket was dull, the prospects poor,
and money always scarce The shutting down
of|the woaks is the theme of the most sincere
regret on the part oi the public who have
already had a kindly sympathy with the
company in the development of their
Poultry Society.
A meeting was held last evening at the
Hotel Wilson of the executive committee of
the above society. Aid. Nightingale was
voted to the chair. After the confirmation
of the minutes of tbe previous meeting the
unfinished business of the society was proceeded with. Mayor Haslam was elected
vice-president, and Dr. Fraeger, J. Sharpe
(Wellington) and R. Nightingale second,
third and fourth vice-presidents. The whole
scheme in connection with the holding of the
show waa then gone into and in order to
make thorough and practical arrangements
in connection therewith. Finance, Adverting and Managing Committees are struck
off. The names of the general committees
are aa follows. Finance:���Aid. R. Nightingale, Dr. Davis, J. ��. R. Taggart and A.
Dick. Advertising: R. Nightingale K. A.

J. Sharp. R. F. Wallis, of Errington,
waa eleoted Superintendent. The Secretary
waa directed to forward the aum of $25,00
to Mr. Theo. Hewea in order toclose wiih.liis
terma as offered to the Society. The Managing Committee were instructed to make an estimate of probable expenditure in connection
with the exhibition and report at next meeting and tho Finance Committee to make a
canvass of the city in order to raise a guarantee fund to meet liabilities.     Thia  forth-
Y coming Poultry exhibit it muat be understood is the regular annual one of the B. C.

Three Tough Tramps.
Three tough-looking tramps going south
made themselves very offensive at Clover-
dale laat Sunday. Iu one house where a
lady waa alone with the ohildren, they tried
to break open the door, and only desisted
when a neighbor came upon the scene. They
were also very aaucy in other houaea regarding the food supplied to them. Altogether
there is good reaaon to believe that Capttin
Pittendrinh's suggestion of a Provincial
police officer in the neighborhood of Blaine
should be acted upon, if only temporarily,
while this tramp nuisance is so serious a
matter as it undoubtedly is at present.���N.

The enormous circulation  of
"The   Delineator" (the   com-
bined first American,  English
and Canadian editions of the
present number are ovtr 560,-
000 copies) is proof that it
sitisfies a very general need,
and our aim for the future will
be to merit an ever increasing
share of popular favor by maintaining a continual improvement in the quality and scope
of the magazine. In reducing
the prices of our Patterns we
have been actuated by motives
of regard for those wbo lave
contributed, by their constant
patronage, to our own success.
The demand for Butterick Patterns is now larger than ever
before, and we are confident
that by diminishing their cost
we will lessen the financial
pressure in many a household,
and at the same time introduce
our goods to women who have
heretofore been unacquainted
with their merits.

An Apt Illustration of Divine Charity
Humanly Kxerclscd���The Poor are
More Charitable In the True Souse
Than  tho Rich.
We meet a oase of pitiful distress upon tha
street, or one comes to our door, or we read
of one in the paper, and we put our hands
down in our pockets and out comes a coin,
and then we go off, you and I, with the
consciousness of a worthy act of charity
that keeps our hearts warmed all day with
a tine glow of self-gratilication. We call
that charity, don't wef Pshaw! there
isn't a touch of charity about it. Money is
the easiest tiling in all the world to give.
If the petitioner hail- asked some of that
precious time of yours, which you can spend
so readily for your own good pleasure, or If
his comfort were to be secured only at the expense of yours, how greatly inclined would
you bo toward the self-sacrifice I Money is
such acheap thing to give for those who have
it. It is the only the very pour who can get
tho deepest blessedness of giving out of a
gift of money���when the pennies are so
scanty thnt the sharing of them means a
sharing of the bread the givers put at
their lips. A few days ago The Sun told the
story of the snd fortunes of Patrick Shields,
whose wife died suddenly on New Year's
night, nnd left him with two year-old babies.
The Sliicldscs had reached the last penny of
their savings, and now here were death and
two hungry, hall-clad babies. Iu tho next
room to the Shieldses lived an English woman
with four children of her own to care for
and no husband to help. She was poor, too,
desperately poor, and she had known the
Shieldses only two weeks. Hut when death
came to them, in she stepped and carried the
two sickly, crying babies to her own little
room. For four nights they slept in her lied,
and she slept ou a bed on the floor, what
time she was not pacing tho lloor with the
children in her arms. Hor last pennies went
for milk to put into their mouths, and then
her one good dress went to the pawnbroker's
for money to put shoes and stockings on tho
little bare feet. She housed theninnd washed
them and dressoa them and mothered them as
their own mother would have done, and for
the four days that they were given to her, she
gave up all her outside work that she might
belong to them alone. When their father
finally found a place where they could bs
.cared for, she said, with tears rolling down
her lace, "Take them away, at once. If
they stay a day longer I'll never let them go,
and I can't work for so many." And yet
���there was nothing especially attractive about
���these children���they were sick and thin and
plain, and they had never stopped being
hungry long enough to learn to smile.
It's easy to give a dollar to a starved looking wretch, and it's pleasant to givo .a moment's caress to a rosy, laughing, vi ell-fed
baby. But when it comes to shaving your
last bit of broad, and taking your clothes
from your own body and putting sleep from
your own eyelids to bring life back to the
sickly bodies of two babies who do not even
know what you are doing���do we know anything about such charity as that, you and If
Sho was rosy and stout, this woman, she
mad a commonplace English face like thnt of
Mrs. Kez/.iwig without her good clothes
.and imposing headpiece. And yet, as The
Woman sat and watehod her croon one of
those fretful babies to sleep in her arms, she
found the real Madonna face that she had
looked for so long. For The Woman has
never seen a Madonna, in all tho long list
of large-eyed, oval-faced creatures, that
satisfied her for one instant. Some, of them
are simpering and sentimental, and their
faces no moro reflect mother love thnn
the placid face of tho child. Others look
as if they might love the one child in
their arms. But not one has the look of
Universal Motherhood, not one looks as if
she could give of her bosom to the whole
suffering child race. In not ono snd, or sentimental, or spiritual face is the look that
shone from this round, plain face as she lifted the baby's head gently in her hard palm
to her ample bosom���the look of the Mother
of tho race of men. This is the real Madonna-look, and here was the true Madonna-
heart, found, not in the dim recesses of
cathedrals, not in the galleries of the
masters, but down in the dingiest depths of
a wicked city, battling with want and care
and suffering, und knowing sin and misery,

Viae  Hone   Grafting Experiment in  Net?
York���The Actual Results Attained���
Room Coi- Hope Although This   Trial
was nut an Unqualified Success.
In the New York Charity Hospital, iu
November lu-.t, as described In these columns
early in December, Dr. A. M. Phelpsgrafted
a bone from a dug's leg in the shin bone of a
boy, under ciroiiin.->tnuces which attracted
general at lent inn. Both boy and dog were
bound side by side on a cot, whore they
might be kept as coin fort ably as possible for
several days, ftnflSsthetiOS were administered
but moderately, and a piece of tho bone
about an inch and a half long was taken
from the dog's limb uud inserted in that ol
the boy, where it. was Ingeniously secured in
position, caro being taken not to injure the
arteries or any Important portion of the
circulatory system of either. It was (Its
signed that (lie vitality of the dog should
contribute to the growth of the bone in place
in the boy's leg, which, it win estimated,
would require about thirty days, and an
artery of the dog was, therefore, conducted
to the grafted bone, and muscle was stitched
to muscle and skin tc skin, to
promote, if possible, a mutual growth.
After three days the boy and dog became apparently comfortable together, and
at the end of six days the wound was naturally healed, but at tho end of eleven days
there was an apparent shrinkagu of the dig
in the dressings, allowing of motion, and
endangering the palling of the graft from
position, and the bond of union between the
boy nnd the dog was then, ou this account,
severed. The operation had not been successful, but the bone graft was covered
with an irregular new growth, and
circulation was shown to have been established between tho boy and dog. At
the end of Ave weeks the graft
was removed from the boy's leg, but the
stimulation it had caused is said to have set
up a reparative process, which gives hope
that the original fracture may reunite. The
boy now walks with the aid of one crutch or
a cane, and the dog was carefully treated
after the separation. Dr. Phelps is confident
that the bony union would have taken place
with the graft if actual e ��� ilact could have
beeu maintained for a lo.iger period, and
says that '* the operation is a success
iu so far as it establishes the
priuciple that it is possible to grow large
masses of tissue from an animal to man, and
to establish the circulation until the union
takes place between opposite species without
danger to cither. It also demonstrates that
a growth of new bone takes place when a
section of bone is transplanted and its
nutrition maintained by the artery of the
animal. This, if continued for four or five
weeks, would probably unite a fracture "
The Electrical Heater.
One of the electrical applications which
will presently come into as general requisition rs that now enjoyed by the electric
motor is the electrical heater, It dispenses
with all dirt iu the house, and can be turned
off and on just xvfceu wanted* A large percentage of the heat from a stove goes up the
chimney and is wasted, but as the electrical
heater is light and handy, and can lie moved
from place to place with ease, the full advantage of its heat can always be secured. For
instance, if a person is writing his feet often
get cold if he is at any distance from the Are
or stove, but with an electrical heater diffusing a heat of any strength or mildness, and
costing less than 1 cent per hour, he can continue his writing in comfort. To those who
suffer from cold feet at night the electrical
heater is a godsend. It can be so arranged
as to give a gentlo heat at the foot of tho bed
for a certain time, aud theu to automatically
reduce the supply of heat and finally cut it off.
Electrical Progress.
Owing to tho difficulties that have so often
been found with the closed type of engines
for electric light machinery, the English ad-
mii alty has abolished them in recent ships
and substituted open engines of the compound typo.
A self-acting electrical balance has recently been Invented. The object to be weighed
Is to be placed iu the pan, which closes tho
circuit, starts a motor ami moves the'weight
out on the beam of the balance. When the
equipoise is established the circuit is broken.
Electricity has found a use in the stable
iu a new idea for grooming horses. The
power furnished by an electric motor Is taken
by u flexible tube to a brush that revolves
rapidly. With this brush a man can groom
a horso bettor iu five minutes than in a much
longer time by baud.

Mr. John O. Dickorsou, of Chicago, on

human skin, taken from 183 different individuals, iu January last, died on February
24. The occasion arose from the removal of
a cancer, and it was at first considered the
Operation was likely to be a success, the new
skin having begun to attach itself over ths
wound, but tho stomach of the patient gave
out, the system having been overtaxed by
numerous operations, and when nourishment
failed the wound ceased to heal.���tscienti.lc
Sunday Law In Switzerland.
In Switzerland a Sunday law lias been enacted applying to ull railroad, steamboat,
and tramway companies and post offices.
Working time must not be more than 13
hours a day, oven on occasions of increased
traffic Engine aud train men must have at
least 10 hours uubroken rest, and other employes II hours. They must also havo 52
days off yearly, aud 17 of these must, be

made for such rest days. All freight, truffle

Electrical Utilization of Insects.
An electric apparatus supplies a strong
light which attracts tbe insects and moths;
a suction fan worked by the electric current
draws them in wheu they approach the
light, and carries them into a small milL
also worked' by the electric curreut, where
they are ground up and mixed with flour
and thus converted Into poultry food of excellent quality. This is said to be a Bavarian contrivance.

ywhere else in
for a Yankee
vise a method
for ending his life, Thich litis, in all
probability, never had 11 parallel. Reproved or punished for* ionic trilling offense, lie went to his t itlier's barn and
spent three days in ris/ [ing up a guillotine, with which he su cssl'ully beheaded himself. Between I pair of grooved
uprights he fixed a btclier's cleaver,
sharpened to a razor-iw|B edge. This he
.weighted on top with���Jbox of scrap iron
and stone weighing �� | pounds. From
the top of the upright *a the bottom the
distance was five feetj and the cleaver
was held in position at*Iie top by a rope
reefed through a pullly and held by a
.wooden lever four feet in length. On
the end of this lever he hung a large tin
pail, in the bottom of which a small
hole had first been bored. The pail was
filled with water, which slowly dripped
through the hole in the bottom. After
these arrangements had been completed
the lad placed his neck between the uprights directly in line with the cleaver.
jWhen the water in the pail had nearly
all escaped the lever flew up, the rope
was released and the sharpened blade
fell like a Hash. The head of the suicide
was cut off clear and clean.
In March, 1883, a man boarded a ferryboat running between Philadelphia
and Camden, N.J., and when the boat
jwas in midstream he took a vial from
his pocket containing prussic acid. He
swallowed the contents, at tho same time
mounting the rail. Before the deck
bands could cheek him the self-murderer leaped into tbe river and as he went
overboard shot himself through the head
with a bullet from a bulldog revolver.
iWhen his body was recovered and a postmortem examination was made sufficient
'poison was found in his stomach to have
killed a dozen men.
j A few years ago a despondent German,
who had lodgings on Grand street, near
the Bowery, rigged up an old fowling-
piece in front of a table, with the stock
resting on the floor. He had first charged it heavily with powder and Blugs. To
the trigger he attached a string which
was run around tlio table leg. The other
end \yas tied to his foot. Ho had two revolvers of 42-calibre each in the right and
left pocket of his sack coat. There was
a pitcher of beer on the table. Thus the
man drank with the muzzle of the gun
pointing at his face. When lis- was ready
to die he drew out the revolvers and
placed the muzzles against either side of
his head. As he pulled the triggers he
jerked his foot. The three weapons exploded simultaneously. The gun had
been improperly set and the charge went
over his head. The bullet from the pistol
in his left hand glanced upward and
simply cut a groove through the scalp.
The other bullet entered the brain, but
did not have the effect even of producing
unconsciousness, so the suicide arose,
dragged gun and table across the room
to a bureau, and there, picking up a
razor, cut his throat from ear to ear. This
caused death.
One of the coolest and most deliberate
attempts at suicide recorded is that of
Benjamin Hunter, the murderer of
John Armstrong, in Camden, N. J., in
1879. Hunter was confined iu the
': murderers' cage" in the county jail
under charge of the deathwatch. He
complained of chilliness one night and
wus permitted to wrap up his lower extremities in a blanket. He had previously torn off the rim of his tin cup with his
teeth and had it concealed in his trousers pocket. Talking on commonplace
topics to his guard, Hunter secretly
took the jagged strip of tin from his
pocket, and concealing his movements
with the blanki.-t, begau cutting into an
artery in his left leg. The blood spurted
out in jets, und the flow was concealed
by Hunter spreading the blanket out
like a skirt. He became so weak that he
was unable to continue the conversation
and the guard's suspicions were aroused.
He made an examination and found that
the murderer was bleeding to death.
Physicians were summoned, a ligature
was applied and Hunter's life was saved.
He wus afterwards hanged and it was
pretty generally believed that lie waa
dead from fright and sedatives before
the cord tightened around his neck.
A man named Nerdinger, living at
No, 018 East Eleventh street, killed himself in April last with unusual deliberation. He went into a woodshed, and,
placing a thin rope around his neck, tied
the ends to a post. Then he walked
around and around uiud he had strangled himself.
A tailor in Philadelphia took oue of
the blades of a pair of scissors, and,
putting the point directly over his heart,
pushed the blade slowly into his body by
pressing the other end against  the wall

Dunn's Challenge
A Teleukam representative interviewed
Mr. Harry Dunn, Champion Wrestler of
Australia at the Britannia Hotel last evening. Hs stated that he had aeen McL< oil's
and Acton's challenge which appeared in the
TKi.KUKAMof yesterday. He had this to say
about these challenges that aa challenges
they were liable to give rise to disputes
which would not be product ive of a satisfactory match. I have come "said Mr.
Dunn" from Australia to wrestle anybody
bs he black, white or yellow. I have a
thousand dollars to put up on the result and
he who wins three matches out of
five takes thewhole box and dice, gate money
as well no percentage business. I want
the whole gate money if 1 win and I am
willing to give it to my opponent if ho is
successful in downing me. With retard to
McLeod'a challenge I have strong objections
to it aa it amounts merely to a time challenge or in other words to explain it better,
he might win two of the sty It s in a shorter
time than I would win (supposing I was
successful) the other three. Really in such
a case I would be the better all round man
and he an expert at two styles only. I am
willing to meet McLeod in five atyles catch-
as-catch-can, Graeco-Roman, collar and elbow, side holds and Cumberland or back
hold, and allow him $50 to meet me in
Nanaimo, which, I understand ia his own
town and for which I have taken i|uitca liking
or if Nanaimo does not suit him I will meet
him anywhere on British soil; but I cannot
see what objections he can have to meeting
me in Nanaimo���his home, so to speak���
where he is well acquainted and where he
has, I understand, hosts of friends. As for
Acton's challenge, I think he only wishes to
let people know that he's living, but you
can tell him I'll wrestle him Cornish atyle���
I know that will suit him. I think that's
all I can say about Acton." With this the
interview closed. Mr. Dnnn further stated
that he would give an exhibition on Saturday night and the public would have an
opportunity of judging of hia merits.
