It is a very  nice  thing   to have a surplus,   but it  is  also just   to  pay all  outstanding  accounts before declaring such a surplus.    In  lilfll,  which was the     first  year of sports in this city, a dancing  pavillion   was   wanted,   but   thc committee did vol have the cash to liquid)  one.

WM.  NICHOLAS.  gn,rd to the     Exclusion   "Act.     Both  Ohinrse and Americans are agreed up-\  on  the point   that  the exclusion      of  sink the steamer, so flu-    hih-per op- jcooik,s is thfi chief:matter under con-  ened      life   on   her.    A   lose     f  .. <\ its   Isiderafion      and   that   the  Act  deals  were fired  by  the cruiser before  St.  K'ilda sank-.  A decpatcii  dated at London at'������������������<!.  '10   this  afternoon  says:   A  considerable  stir  hi s   I een   created   in   ship-   j  ping circles as r- result of the sinking  of  the     British  steamer  St.   Kilda. |  The foreign office has been bombard- j  with the exclusion of this class. The  discussion of the subject will be necessarily prolonged and to arrange a  new convention will take time. Mr.  Roekhill, the American minister, has  assured the Chinese that America's  intentions are fair an J conciliatory,  and the Chinese board of foreign   af  fairs is apparently satisfied upon the  subject. The put lie are somewhat  alarmed,   hence  the  boycott. This*  movement   is- unlikely to  attain  any-  serious  proporlkns,   although   it.   is  significant,  indicating thc  importance  which is attached  by the Chinese'to  the questions involved in the  American   Exclusion   Act.    The . exclusion of  coolies from  the Hawaiian and Philippine  Islands  is   considered   a hardship by ��������� the Chinese, who also   complain   of   the  treatment   they   experienced at   the hands of the  American  customs officials.    Nevertheless  there'  is  a genuine desire uron   the  part  oE  t.he  Chinese government  for  a speedy  and aniica'ble adjustment jof the question at  issue.  Tn German and other circles here  the prospects rf peace between Japan and Russia are considered remote.  It. is supposed that Japan inte������-ds to  inflict a final and crusliidg blow upon  the Russian army of Manchuria before entertaining any proposition for  peace.  ������������������iff  ",������������,* 1  "^.yj  ��������� Mr  '-?-������.'I  ���������et'.T  "'I 5aE  DAILY LEDGER  THE DAILY LEOGtR  JVSV  r  s^v,\   .*i^  ^V*C^^*K\^^^^S������%^S%V������V^SS%\**V<V5X!J  fublisned   every  day except Sunday  ������Y        THE        DAILY        LEDGEK  COMP-VNY.

Solid flocks of jonqluils and pale  blue hyacinths are another combination, although theie is very little  ���������Lrilliancy in the colors. Nothing is  more effective, though, than the geraniums in thc reddest hues, in spite  of the fact that they1 werc so com-  monlast summer. They are the. hardiest of all the combinations, and do  not, like the hyacinths and tulips,  have to be replaced after a short  time.

REMARKABLE [CASE  OF   A  YOUNO   ENCJLISH   C1IRL  An extraordinary nuitfrimonial dispute all'ectir.g an Engl-ishwoiiuin has  arisen af Tnngier. A Moorish acrobat from the Sus district some time  ago married a Manchester girl aged  seventeen. The brideis fricn h.  . n  learning that he was already the .husband of ���������   another woman, requested  the   British   Consular   authorities al,  Tangier  to send  her  back  to      England.      Today thc acting cch-suIK Mr.  MitcheJI,   calii-d   the Moor  to  his office and told  him  that lie must send  the girl home and pay  the necessary  expenses.    On   the man   refusing     to-  do so,   Mr.  Mitchell  threatened t ���������  'to  hand  him over  to  ther Moorish     authorities.��������� Thereupon   the  Moor   mi-1-  denly drew a revolver on  Ihe Con ml,  but was prevented from firing  by li'r  Morillo,   thc   consular   clerk,        who  placidly sicKcd him. A  fierce struggle  ensued in thc Consul's office, and Air.  iv/oriilo was assaulted   with  the butt  of the revolver.   The Moor, finally escaped  and  took refuge in sanctuary.  The marriage' was performed .according to the Mahommodaii ceremony, and the re-gister was signed by,  a sheikh. The girl, who was only  seventeen years of age, is alleged lo  have been terrorised by the Moor.  u ^~-  A   CHEEKY  CHAPLAJN    ~~*  AND THE     POPE.
