MEN TO MEET  NAVAL STORES  SOLD  The meeting to he    held  ihis evening at Harmony  Hall,  of Uic members of the three Odd Fellows Lodges  is a    most     important     one, and it  ; would seem only reasonable to expect  every member of the different -lodges,  who can possibly be present to do so.  One     strong    lodge,     or church, or  school is certainly better than several which lack in   attendance or gcod  support.   Ladysmith     Odd      Fellows  can, by    combining the three lodges,  have a     most excellent one, and one  one which     will compare    favorably  with any in the province,   It is hoped  hy the     well-wishers of the lodges in  general that they may come to sc ue  amicable     arrangement and all unite  under one     lodge head.

The  hall was fairly well filled aiid the affair, it is understood, was a financial  success.   The audience seemed  highly  pleased with the programme and many were heard to declare that it was  the    best     heard in this town for a  great iength    of time.   The vocalists  were all in good form, and although  no encores-    were allowed on account  of the length of the programme those  in the hall would have liked to have  recalled all of the singers.  The programme opened with a piano-forte solo by Miss Bert ram, which  wns exceedingly     well    placed.   The  curtain was then rung up for lhe,first  farce Found in a Four-wheeler. This  ! was .very    amusing- and thc audience  appeared     to be    delighted with thc  I presentation. The participants in this  j were Madam     Courtenay, Miss Wyn-  'death, and     Messrs.

PERU IS  PROGRESSIVE  Washington D.C., April 17.��������� In  the opinion of Justice Peckihain the  supreme court of the United States  held to be unconstitutional the New  York State law making 10 hours a  day's work and sixty hours a week's  work in.bakeries In that state. Justices Harlan, While, Day and Holmes dissented and Justice Harlan declared that no more -important decision had l.ecn rendered in thc last,  century. The opinion was handed  down in' the case of Lock her vs. the  Slate of New York, and was based  on the groTind that the law interferes with the free exereicc of the rights  of contract between individuals. The  court of appeals of the state upheld  the law and alliriiu'd the judgment of  the trial court, holding Lockner as  ���������guilty. I  from San Francisco became, very indignant, and charged the auctioneer  with being crooked, with having been  fixed, etc. It was this way: When  the lot was offered, the Hebraic gentlemen from the south were in a corner outside lhe building, where the  boxes were piled. The auctioneer remained where he had been selling previous lots and took the bids. \\h?n  thc southern visitors found that Mr.  Goldberg had the lot knocked down  to-him for $25 they reali.ed that he  had secured a bargain, nnd they  ���������threatened dire things to everybody,  in fact, they were going home to have  the British Empire wrecked through  the exposures they would have the  .San   Francisco   lOxaminer make.  There were many shipping men present-, some of whom intended to Ul  on the hundreds of anchois and many  tons of chain that was offered. Little of this was sold, however, the admiralty having s::t a reserved price on  these things. The jun'c-dealers ring  from the south attempted to brow-  heat bidders who sought to hid for  lhc anchors and chain. They threatened some with dire, ihiiifs if they  dared hid against the ring, A local  shipping man was asked by one member;  of .l>*e  ring if he,   was going,    to  'lhe proceeds of the above entertain j._ ^ QQmi of al scssionS  Th-S  ment, which was given under the aus- K,      wjn ^   ^ for .������ r<5W  pices of the HarleoM.n Dramatic Club! hourSi      howcVcr> as thp mly  thing  wanted is the final ruling;of Justice  Gaynor on a motion asking that District Attorney , Jerome be ordered to  surrender the papers confiscated when  J.

The first  trial   was   interrupted  by   the  illness  of a juror  when  it  was  about,     half  finished.    After a wait .of some time  the  girl  again   publicly  faced  her accusers.    This   time  the  jury  was  unable   to   agree.    When   there   seemed  no      immediatr  prospect,   of another  trial   Miss   Patterson's   counsel   procured a writ of Habeas Corpus about  a month ago and had her  taken into  the      supreme court,  when  a charge  was made  that a date, for trial     be  made  at  once or   the. condemned woman   released on  bail.    As a result, ,  District Attorney Jerome was order-  place Miss Patterson on /trial May 1������  April 10 was later set for the (beginning of- the trial. \ A few days before  that date J. Morgan Smith and  his  wife,   Miss   Patterson's sister,     who  had   been sought   by  the  prosecution  for months as witnesses against the  young  woman,   were  located  in   Cincinatti.       The  grand   Jury   indicted  them on a charge of conspiracy ^  in  connection   with   the   Patterson  ease,  and   they   were  arrested   and  held foi  extradition.    Their   refusal   to   come  lo New York voluntarily  resulted  in  a postponement  of the opening of thc  trial   until  today.    Meanwhile       the  Smiths gave up the liglr; against extradition, and   they are now in     the  tombs.

The response of  France is eagerly awaited,  particularly as  to whether France admits I,  the squadron was within territorial  j  wa'Ccrs when' off Madagascar...

Telegraphic  reports  of Saturday-to  (he-cff.eet   that  a fight will  come: off  between John L. Sullivan and Charley Mitchell'shortly,  in Tacoma,  has  started the local lovers of the manly  art, speculating, as to--the outco ue. lt  is  argued   that   both   principals     fJQ  so old,      and Sullivan especially, so  out   of condition,  that neitiur v.-uld  receive much damage.; Sulliv in, 1j\\-.  ever;  is not so old but that he may  have several good punches   eitin  hi in yet.   If-these two come together-  if will not he for the first time     by  any   means.  In 1883 Sullivan knocked out Mitch  ell in the third round, and on March  Kith, 1888, ens of the longest fights  of the ex-champion's career took  place at Chantilly, France, between  he and  Mitchell.    At  the conclusion  of the     thirty-ninth round the fight  was stopped, owing to a.heavy rain,  and  was      called a'draw.    The  men  have never met, since.  Sullivan's next light was with Jake,  Kilrain,   which he won in  the seventy-fifth'round at Richburg, Miss.  On  September  7th,   1892 he  went       up  against  Jim  Corbctt in New      Or.  leans and lost in the 21st round.   His  next fight was in 1896 in New York  with Tom Sharkey.    This  fight .went  three  rounds   when: it  was  stopped,  no decision being given.  Sullivan is now 47. years old, just.  seventeen years older than the present champion, Jim Jeffries.! Sullivan  won the world's championship from  Jake'Kilrain along with a purse of  $.10,000 at- Richburg,.Miss. July 8th  1889. He lost the championship (o  James J. Corl.������tt in .1892 in the 21st  round.  Charlie Mitchell has had several  tries at the championship, losing to  Sullivan once in the third round and  again to James C'or'jictl in 180-I, the  light taking place in Jacksouvill, Fl.i.  and  lasting three rounds.

Captain  Ariilzen and Mate Bcrger,  who are well known locally, received  a few   weeks ago each  a gold   medal  from the Russian- government for successfully running the Japanese blockade   info   the   port ,of  Vladivostock  with     (he    steamship      Tcllus.    Thc  steamer is     now   in  Asiatic  waters  and is supposed   to bc attempting to  run in another cargo.  The Tricolor is  due about Tuesday  for a 0,000   ton cargo.    Last  month  twenty     ships loaded in Ladysmith,  and so far this month not a shift has  been      lost  in   flic  mines,  and  there  seems" every piospccf of steady work  for the. balance of  lhe nioiilh.      No  coal mines on the   Pacific Coast have  done  equally   well,   excepting,   possibly, Nanai'mo and Comox.  The. Circat Northern liner Minnesota     will  cross  thc Pacific next  trip  burning  Comox coal.    As   lhc  daily  cost     of running the Minnesota     is  approximately   $2,80(1,   she   will   not  visit   Comox,   but   tbe barge Oregon  will      lake down  ;j,000-tons for her.  On   the  Minnesota's  last   trip  Puget  Sound coal was used, but was not a,  success,   only   50   tons   remaining   in  her-bunkers when she arrived in port.  If any   delay  from  stoinis  or  breakage in   machinery  had  occurred      il.  might have meant   something serious  for  the boat.    So  hereafter only   Island coal  will  bo  used   in   hcr  bunkers.  We have a Fine Display of Dainty  Neckwear, new Lace Collars and  other goods too numerous to mention, for the Easter trade.
