personal considerution.';
Today the cheers of the workers have
suddenly been changed to sighs, for, true
to his words, Henry (leorge, the apostle
of the rights of mini, died as he wished
to die— in harness, lighting for the euuse
—toward the dose of the greatest municipal political contest tliu world bus ever
seen.
The end wus peaceful and he died without pain. This man of mighty brain nnd
undaunted courage wus physically frail, i
nnd the strain of un exciting campaign,
requiring speech making ut points many
miles apart, night after night, wns more I
than nature could stand. He kept it up
to tlie end, and only a few hours before
the dread messenger cried hall, Henry
George had addressed enthusiastic audi-
enees in three of the towns of the borough
of Queens, nnd a still larger assemblage in
an tip-town hall here. He spoke ut White-
stone at. 8 o'clock and made a speech at
College Point and Flushing before returning to New York lo spenk nt tlie Central
opera house.
At Whitestone he drove from the rail*
way stntion lo tlie meeting hull ut u gallop. To the cheering crowds he said: "I
believe thut nil Hie needed reforms nre
summed up in thut philosophy- the right
of very man lo cut. to drink, to spenk ns
he sees lit, so long us he does not trench
on the rights of uny other mail. 1 believe
thnt. Clod, the Father, can lake care of
His laws—there is no need for us to get
into trouble trying to meddle with God's
laws, to enforce them. If I um elected, as
I believe flint 1 will be. I will enforce the
luws upon the rich uml poor alike."
in the same speech he repented his
threats against Croker in a ringing voice
that greatly affected his hearers, Baying:
"Let him go to the penitentiary; he shnll
go there."
-Mrs, (leorge nccotnpunied her husband
on most of his speech making trips nud
wus with him lust night. Newspaper men
who huve been with (leorge during tin'
campaign huve felt (hut the strniu was
surely uml rapidly breaking him down.
At times he bus becn incoherent. His
whole temperament underwent a complete change. His speeches, delivered by
the half-dozen each duy, were often rambling, though their trend wus ever faitl
i year ago wus fulfilled by lhe president
becoming Hie guest ,if the Cincinnati
Commercial club ul their annuul dinner.
The function wns exclusive, though (lie
.18 members of the club present, were reinforced by 52 guests, including ex-Attorney General Judson Harmon, Colonel Myron '!'. Hcrriek, Mayor Tafe, M. 15. Ingnlls,
J. Addison Porter, Mr. I.. C. Weir, president of the Adams Express Company;
John W. It. Tuft of the United States
court, anil Colonel M. II. Cochran of tlie
sixth Infantry, C. s. A.
In liis speech President McKlnley suid:
"Commerce is a teacher uml a pacificator.
It gives mankind knowledge of one un-
othcr, Reciprocity of trade promotes reciprocity of friendship. Good trade insures good will. The heart ns well us the
mind contributes directly to the progress
of mankind, uml whenever we secure justice uud fair commercial relations wilh
other nations we nre sure to huve friendly
relations. Abating none of our interest
in the liotne market, let us move steadily
out to new fields and increase the demand
for our products in the foreign market. II
should be our settled purpose to open
trade wherever wo can, making our ships
uml our commerce messengers of pence
uml niuity. The consular service of the
government should be closely scrutinized
anil carefully officered, and we should
have at every commercial port of the
world a sensible and practical American,
who. while discharging his other duties
with honor to lhe government, will not
omit in every way to promote American
exchanges uml encourage reciprocal trade.
Finally, if we ure entering upon nn era
of prosperity such as many believe, and
all fervently hope, remembering our re-
cent panic nnd financial experiences, we
should strengthen the weak plnres in our
linuncinl system nnd remove it forever
from ambiguity ami doubt."

Washington, Nov. I.—Secretary Wilson
• of the department of agriculture, has just
i issued a report prepared under his direction by Flunk 11. Hitchcock, chid of the
section of foreign markets, thut gives
I some interesting fuels relative to tlie
i present wliciit shortage iu Austria-Hungary, und the consequent importation into
' thut country of American grain.
According to Hie United States consul
at   iteichenljun.  Austria, an  importation
of 4IHI carloads of American wheal  was
j made us curly us August, coining by the
] way  of  Hamburg.    Other  importations
] were reported, among them one of 30,700
, bushels of red winter No. 2, und Kansas
| wheat, purchased through the Vienna produce exchange,    Alter recounting these
j unusual importations of the present sen-
son, thc bulletin presents a review of tlie
grain situation in Auslnn-llungrii v dill*
| ing the pn-1   III years.
The crop of tbe present, season is remarkably small. If Uu* official estimates
quoted ure fulfilled lhe combined wheat
production of Austria and Hungary will
amount to Utile more than 130,000,000
bushels, or 00,000,000 bushels short of the
crop harvested in 181)0, Aside from the
abnormal conditions of the present year,
annuul statistics of production, importation und exportation during the decade
make it appurcnt that a marked change'
lins occurred in the Inst few years as regards the grain situation iu Austria-Hungary,
Tlie tendency of the various cereals ha-
been toward a larger home consumption
of tlie national product and consequent
reduction of Hie surplus available for ship
ment to other lands.
Most   ol  the cereals arc now  brought
into the country in larger quantities thnn j
are exported.   Hurley is t|„. only grain oi
which uny considerable amount, continue*,
to be shipped abroad.
In respect to other cereals Ilu* -lulus of
the monarchy is apparently thnl of transi- \
lion from an exporting into an importing
country.   While il is hardly to be expect  ]
cil that, these conditions will  to any c\
tent create un enlarged demand for Anicr j
Iran cereals, Hie fuels set forth ore cer i
tainly of interest, as Indicating Die [esse I    iinportnn f    Anstrin-Iliiiigun

trade with Brazil is large and increasing,
reaching 110,004 barrels per annum during 1801 It.*",. This Increasing hold upon

FAVORS REDISTRIBUTION
Thinks East Yale Should  Have  r
Members and Will Try to (let
Them For Us.
The meeting of the electors of the city
and vicinity held last Saturday evening
in Victoria hall, for the purpose of hearing Mr. Donald Graham, member of the , t0 build a line into   th s distriut  as a
rout?, it gavetwoyears time rr rfriich ic- ,
tual construction should be commenced, :
He (Mr. Graham)then moved an amend- '
mint providing that in order to receive
the $4,000 per mile subsidy lhat con- j
struction work should be commenced
within six months from the passage of
the act. This amendment was voted
down by th; government. He then
moved an amendment to limit the time
to twelve months. After a lengthy debate, the premier fearing that there was
a possibility of Its passing, consented to
a compiotrrise en fifteen menths, so 1 ow
in order to entitle any railway to the
jH.ooo a mile they must begin actual
construction before July next. It the
government Had the assurance that any
railway would commence work at once,
why did it make such a hard fight to allow two years time in which to begin
construction. For two whole days the
opposition argued on the tioor of tbe
house that the government should retain control of the railway construction
in tho province and commence at once
provincial legislature for East Yale,, g0vernrIieni undertaking. Mr. Martin
who is making his annual visit to the1
various parts of the district for the purpose of becoming acquainted with the
wants and needs of his constituents, was
a success in every respect, excepting the
manner in which the hall was heated,
it being so cold lhat it was uncomfortable and disagreeable to both the
speaker aud his hearers.
On motion of Mr. Charles Hay, Mr.
James Addison, our worthy city treasurer, was voted to tbe chair and F. H.
McCarter was made secretary. After a
few preliminary remarks by the chairman in which he stated the object of
the gathering, and referred to the un-
justness of tho municipal act, which as
it stood now, disfranchised many of Ihe
residents of the cities incorporated this
seison under the speedy incorporation
act at the approaching municipal election, and urged upon Mr. Graham the
necessity ol repealing an act that dis-
franchlsed a voter in November who
was allowed to vote at the first election six months previons, Mr. Graham
was introduced.
The appearance of that gentleman
upon the platform was the occasion of
a hearty applause from the audience.
By way ot introduction Mr. G aham
stated that this was his annual tour
which he had found necessary—owing
to the largeness of the district—to make
in order to keep himself posted with the
wants and needs of his constituents.
As there were several mutters of vital
importance outside the usual routine in
the votes for Lridges, roads, etc., which
would necessarily come before the next
session for consideration, and in order
that he might act for the best interest
of the electors of the district to was desirous of obtaining an expression of
their wishes, ln order to get these matters properly before bis hearers he
would take tbe platform formulated by
the opposition—the part*/ he represented—as a basis to work from. The fist
plank of that platforn called for a redistribution of tie districts of the province.
This question, he said, was of general
interest to all,and the ieelingwas strong
throughout the entiro province that
there should be a radical change in the
plan of redistribution inoider that every
district should be given an equal representation. Prior lo the last general election the government had brought down
a rodistributiou measure based upon no
principle of a representation, and as a
result the government secured twenty-
two members and tbe opposition eleven,
while the difference in the popular vote
had been only one or two thousand.
In the last election Caiibco with only
400 votes was given two members, Lil-
looett with 450 votes two members, Esquimau with 400 votes two members,
Cowichan-Alberni with about 450 votes
two members, while East Yale with 1030
votes had been given only one. This he
considered was a most glaring piece of
injustice. Daring the last session Primer
Turner had promised that the government wonld bring down a redistribution
bill the comingsession, and as Eas*. Yale
would have by that time over 1600
or possible   1700 votes,  he   was   of the
had also stated that he (Mr. Graham)
had moved the amendment that no company shouli receive both a land grant
and the 84,000. He was not tbe mover
of the amendment, but had voted for it,
and he did so with the strongest en-
doibation from the people of the district. That Mr. Heinze was closely
identified wilh the government there
was no doubt. The lieutenant governor had interests in the He nze company
which is said, wero acquired in consideration ot his irfluence with the government on behalf of the company. It was
also believed that other members of the
government were interested in the
Heinze company. Their eagerness to
advunce Heinze's interest whenever an
occasion afforded itself he offered as
proof ot tbis fact. It has been admitted
on the floor of the house, by Mr. Eberts,
the attorney general, that the firm of
Eberts & Taylor had boen retained by
Mr. Heinze. There was a growing feeling throughout the province against
ministers of the government being interested in corporations seeking public
favors, and the government that permitted it would sooner or later pass
out of power. He was ef the opinion
lhat if thc bonus of $4,000 a mile from
the province and the $8,oco a mile offered by the dominion government was
not a sufficient amount to induce some
company to begin construction before
tho lime elapsed in July, tbe provincial
government should undertake thc conduction of the line.
Amendments to the Land Act.
The next plank in the platform he
called attention to was the one dealing
with lhe reservation of the land for actual settlement, the reservation ot coal
lands, and timber lands. He then referred to the mal-adminstration of the
lands and works department. There
was one case he desired to call particular
attention to because Mr. Martin had referred to him (Mr. (l.aham), "People
living in glasshouses should not throw
stones." The case ht bad rererence to
was that of the Ru.kle Brothers of this
city, who through the error and neglect
of Mr. Coryell, tbe surveyor, had been
beat out of a portion of their land. Notwithstanding the fact that Mr. Coryell
had acknowledged that thistractof land
had been left out of the field notes filed
with the department of lands and works
b/ mistake, and that it had been clearly
shown that the Ruckle Brothers had
fenced the land and cultivated if for ten
years, 11 crown giant had been issued
to Mr. Johnson of Victoria, for a client
of bis. Tbe greatest ii justice had been
done these gentlemen and such tieat-
ment should condemn any government.
Other Needed Legislation.
The reorganization of the civil service
1 and tbe liberal expenditure of public
money on useful public works was also
dealt with, and he showed where misappropriations of large amounts of public money had been made lor purely
political teason and by incempent officials. Attention was also called to tbe
fact that the government, against the
wishes of their most ardent supporters.
opinion it would be the noxt thing to an ■ had always opposed any attempt to re-
impossibility for the government to I strict Chinese immigration. The rea-
ignore its   claims  for at least another  son for this was that the government
member if not two. A fair redistribution could not be expected from the
goverment as it would be almost suicidal for them to cut off their suppor'ors
in the pocket boroughs controlled by the
Dunsmuirs. There was a question as to
whether another member should be
given for the district of East Yale or
whether it should be subdivided into
two districts. The Hon. Martin had
stated to him duiing his recent visit to
the distiict, that he bud found the people in favor of another member, and not
subdivision, Mr. Graham sad that dur-
i*g his visits to Osoyoos, Fairview,
Ksremoos, Camp McKinney, Midtfay,
Greenwood, and in fact every place he
huii been, he had found the people universally in favor of subdivision. And
in order to be in a position when he
went to Victoria to successfully dispute
the statement of Mr. Martin he desired
an expression from those present on
this point, resolutions of a similar purport having bcea passed at meetings
held at the abo*. e 11-1 me places.
His Railway Policy.
The next most important plank, Mr.
Giaham said, was the railway, which
means as far as the opposition was concerned that tho province should keep
control of the railways. He had noticed by
the press that Mr. Martin had, probably
from the same platform, taken occasion
to blame thc opposition (and more particularly himself) for a railway not being constructed into this district this
year. This he most emphatically denied. The actual fact was, at the lust I
session of the legir-la'ur; the  bill  intro
was entirely in the power of the Dunsmuirs and like corporations and consequently always was found fighting for
their interests. The repeal of the tax
commonly known as the mortgage tax
was advocated. While tbis tax did not
effect the people of this er.d of the district, owing to the prosperty almost invariably found in mining districts; in
other portions; particularly in the agricultural district?, the mortgage tax was
an important issue, and he considered it
nothing less than a plan of.dual taxation.
He accused the government oi being
the champion of monopolists and sighted several cases to prove his assertion,
chief among which was their attempt
to force the city of Nelson to purchase.the
plant of the Nelson Waterworks company at an enormous figure. The taxing, by the government, of miners working for wages In the interior, was denounced, and was considered by Mr.
Graham, a gross injustice, inasmuch as
the coal miners working in the Duns-
muir coal mines were not required to
pay for the same privilege. In reference
to the municipal act reterred to by Mr.
Addison, there was no remedy. It was
on the statue books of the province and
its provisions would bave to be complied with until it was repealed.
After apologizing for keeping thoBe
present so long in the cold be closed

ment of the various needs ot this locality, as it would aid him in making out

adopted:

Whereas any delay in building a line

J
Mr. and Mrs. Langley of Chicago, Mr.

the assayer of this city, have just returned f-oni a sixteen days trip to the Siniil-
kameen and surrounding country, In
an interview wirh a representative of
the MiNEB concerning the tiip Mr.
Sheads said:
'I was employed by Mr. Langley to;
accompany bin) 011 this tup to
make assays from any desir.ible looking

my experience of anything pertaining to
mining in reference to buying, bonding, I
etc, etc. While we rid not see as
much ol the country a* we would like
to have, owing to our time being limited,

were not of the best, I have every reason to believe, that there are some good
prospects lhal will show up well, as 1
bavo got some very fine results from

"it looks as if the country was very
spotty, you wi.l hear of groups of claims
in one place and probably many miles
will intervene before you will find an
other location, or hear of any; tbis 1
think is particularly the case up ai tl
down the Similkameen river. The general formation of the country is granite
and a grey prophyty with more or less
dolomite. 1 also noticed quite a **oud

contended that tlio condition uf agriculture abroad, despite bounties and protective larilfs. was little better, ninl in some
eases was worse, than in England. He
fully agreed with Sir Wilfred Lattrier,
who declared that, any deviation from
commercial freedom would only weaken
the bonds holding tho empire together,
nnd thai anything in tlie direction nf an
Imperial zollvercin would weaken tin' empire internally ami excito Hie permanent
hostility of Hie whole world, already ox-
oiled by liritish prosperity under free
trade. He Baid he would trend softly in
lhe presence nf an idea of a zollvercin, for
he believed it already dead. It behooved
them to walk Btrongly und warily in the
path of empire, hut such a zollverein
would form a permanent menace of war.

To Cure Female Ills—Some True
Reasons Why Mrs. Pinkham
Is More Suooessftil Than
tho Family Doctors.
A woman is sick; some disease peculiar to her sex is fast developing in her
system. Kite goes to her family physician and tells him a story, but not the
whole Btory.
She holds something back, loses her
head, becomes agitated, forgets ivhot
idle wants to say, and finally conceals
what she ought to have told, and thus
completely mystifies the doctor.
Is it any wonder, therefore, that the
doctor fails to cure tbe disease? Still,
we cannot blame the woman, for It is
very embarrassing to detail some of
the symptoms of hcr suffering, even to
hcr family physician.
It was for this reason that years
ago Mrs. Pinkham, at Lynn, Mass.,
determined to step in and help hcr
sex*. Having bad considerable experience in treating female ills with
her Vegetable Compound, sho encouraged the women of America to write
to hor for advice in regard to their
complaints, and, being a woman, it
was easy for her ailing sisters to pour
into her ears every detail of their suffering. Over one hundred thousand
: women were successfully treated by
I Mrs. Pinkham Inst year. Such are the
graud resull s of hcr experience.

it should here be explained that the
title of "Admiral" was uot used In
England lu the earlier days, says the
London Nautical Magazine. In fact,
the better opinion, ls that it was not so
used before the beginning of the fourteenth century. He wns called Capl-
laneus Marls (Captain of the Sen),
"Keeper of the seacoiists," "Captain of
the King's mariners." The title "Admiral" or "Amlral," probably derived
from the Arable nnilr or emir (prefect), was used In foreign countries
much earlier than In Hnghiiid, and
, came to us from Prance. I'rynuc
("Animadversions," page loin, states
that there were admirals and an admiralty court in England ns early as
the time of Henry I., derived from our
ancient Snxon kings—Alfred, Edgar,
Ethelred and others who had the do
minion of the I'.rlllsli ocean. None ol
ihse kings probably was more potent
than King Edgar, who, possessing an
absolute dominion of the neighboring
sen, sailed around about It every year
and secured It with a constant guard.
These ships, being very stout ones,
were lu number 1,200; some writers
even affirm that there were 4,8011 sailing ships.
