Hi'-, address was listened Lo  with miidi interest .by all present),  and at its conclusion brought forth.  ti hearty burst of applause.  In his opening lcinarks, Mr. Watcher referred to the kindness with  -which hotb he and Mrs. Watcher had  been ue'ehod in Ladysmith and the  excelloiiil'time which they spent every  minute since their arri\al. lie had  often in the past li.--d invitations to  attend a session.' of the local aerie,  .���������but had. hitherto been unable 7 to do  so owing to pressure of business.  While -lv* regretted at the time the  fact that it was .'necessary, to rciusc.'  these invitations, lie -was now gla.it-  that he had done, so. "Beoausej"  -continued the speaker, "If I 'had accepted ���������"���������'these "invitations,', my -visit  to Ladysmith would now have bona  a tiling of the past, and all tho  ninny pleasures which both Mrs.  Watcher and myself have c-n.ioy.ed every moment since our arrival, ami  .which J am enjoying ^at thc ^present  time, .would-, bo ovicr^" ���������'������������������__ ._  After a few more remarks on tho  above lines, tlic ���������-speaker .-referred .to  the progress of the Order' of ���������-.Eagles  in BritishColumfc.ia and the rapid  strides which it had made. A.'new  aerie had .recently been formed at.  Veinnii, where he had recently been,  and it, is now in a most llouiishirig  condil-ioiii. At Kaniloops, allhoagh  some trouble had exis-ted at one lime,  it was soon .settled, and 'be aexie  ���������was.now in excellent shape, and end;  a 1 wl every niomber of it i.s an enthusiastic Eagle. At Kove.lsloxe a  large aerie exists, and on a ifa'.'.t  visit he linil been most cor.lial'y t c-  reived Dy lbe members of ���������.h.\l city  He referred also to the, New Westminster, Vancouver, Victoria' nil  .several Other .������������������.erics, which lie --. *:s  pleased to say, are to-day in better  shape tlmn ever ])erore.  ���������Reg-anling the work done by the  Eagles, the speaker, in referring to  the Victoria  Aerie,  spoke ..'.A one case  order dated fiom JSUt', and tine speak  er "was s'.ie the. icsults were sonie.-  thing !oi c\ery Eagle-lo be proud of.

Again speaking of the coming convention iu Milwaukee, Mr. Watcher  slated that-during the afternoon he  haul -.err gingerly approached tho  worth/ past president of tine local  a'ne, Mr. Forcinuner, regarding tho  possibility- of the Ladysmilh aerie  sending, a delegate to lhe coming  "convention. .1 fe. was very sorry vu  say that he had received no encour-  ������������������.jg'ciivent.ah'bK lltjse. lines, ,and ho presumed th at "-..this was owing' to tho  fact that'.. the scareity of funds in tho  local treasury prevented tbec entertainment of tlic idea for tlic"'. present,  liow'ever; "lie sincerely ���������'wished':-' that  there might be some means of "surmounting the difficulty,"and while.ho-  did not want" to say fcclo much on  the subject, he "would urge that tho.  members get together if possible and  see if something-could not he done  in the matter. As it stands at present Canada is not well represented  at the convention, and', of course, the  more delegates sent from Canada the  better chance they will have of voicing 'their opinions to some effect. He  himself; in tended'to he present at the  convention,, along with sonic '10,000  or i0,()()0 other Eagles, 'and although  he would not amount to much in a  crow"? of this kind, still he certainly  would do all possible.  Before ^concluding his remarkis, tho  speaker"referred briefly, to. the- work  being done by the Canadian I'Jagle, a  paper for which lie did the editorial  writing, lie stated that the paper,  was doing its very be}-*!; .in the interest of the l-'aglcs, and he asked tho  continued support of the brethren iu  Ibis  matter.  At the conclusion of the .applause  with which , Mr. Watcher's remarks  had been received, Mr. Oilman, in  response to a request of the toasl-  iiiai'i'fcer, entertained1 thc company  with a song, which was well render-  MAY TIKE  tSTEBSMirCHEU  SftUTH FOR [Alii  Atiorne\s of Seattle who have be-j  come-interested in the Mitchell case',  ha\e been' raising thu .question as to [  the necessity of pulling King county}  to the expense of h.uing anothtr, I  possibly two more, liials of the pn- \  .���������ioners from Oregon, Esther Mitchell 1  and Mrs. Maud Crefeld, ou the chaJ-g^ ]  uf murder.

During lluse eighteen months, llw-  Eagles had looked after him ciinstantly, although the laws of th;*ii  order only made provision for a certain period for which a mciuhei  should receive fell benefits. However,  in   this  case,   the   Ea-glris  had    stood  "Our Aerie" was the next toast  proprped, and was responded to by  Messrs. Forcinuner and Stewart, the  former being the first to speak. In  ol.'.e.!i'ii,g his remarks, Mr. Forcimjiier  referred to the pleasure which he  tooic in  (ax per caj.ila could be easily raised suiliciently to allow of the Grand  Aerie assisting tlie various aeries to  send  a delegate  to .the convention.  Mr. .1. Stewart, in respondiing,  sy.oke on somewhat similar lines to  those, pursued by Mr. Foroimmer. In  fact, he remarked that Bro. Fqrcim-  riier had 'taken some of the words  out of 'his mouth when referring to  the good Woik accomplished by the  guest of the evening, Deputy Grand  Presid'enit Watclier. However; ibeing  treasurer of the local aerie he concurred with the remarks of Brother.  Forcimmer. alsu in tlie matter of  scwlii'ig a ���������delegate to the.-convinig".convention. Air. Stewart then gave  some ligurcs aPpnrtain-ng tji the condition of tlie financed of the aerie at  present, a"'id while they were sufficient to cover all ordinary expenditures, they were by no means large  eaion.gJi to warrant the expense incurred in sending- a dehgate to All 1-  waukee.  Mr. Watcher asked permission to  respond in a few words lo the remarks of Mr. ForcLmnier regarding  the possibility of securing a^s'^tanco  from the Grand Lodge for H.he sending of delegates to conventions. He  staled that this was a mat--  ter which had received thc full attention of the Grand Aerie, and  much work had hcen done to ascer-  tstin if it was possible to render  such assistance. Some of th'* best  linaiici'vl irieii os the order had been  railed upon for opinions, and it had  ���������;-een concluded that .the raising, of tho  per oa-pita tax necessary to cover  the expense would amount eventually  to much more for the various aeries  Hiaii  the cost of  sending a delegate.  "It must. be. remembered," continu-  the speaker, "tliatwhile this year  it might cost the Ladysmith Aerio  $200  to send  a    delegate to  Miilwau-  penses.  -  0   SI IE A R Wlv T E R K ET b RNS.

The result of the trial was  therefore a great surprise, instead of  disappointment. It is the same with  the manufacturers of Chambeilain's  Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy. They do not boast of what  this remedy will accomplish, hut prefer to let thc users make the statements. What they do claim, is that  it will possibly cure diarrhoea, dysentery, pains in the. stomach and 'bowels ami has never lycen known to fail.  For sale hy The LaAysmit'll Pharmacy.  NOTICE.
