New York, May 17.���������Weather  conditions 'early today were much   aore  favorable for a start of .the yachts in  thc trans-Atlantic race than on Yesterday.       Just  before eight o'clock  thc wind was blowing eight knots an  hour     from  the northwest,  the sky  wa.s cloudy-and the air clear: ������   At  that time it was possible  to clearly  observe objects ten miles away. The  Sandy Hook lightship could be plainly  seen  from  lhc  highlands of Nave-  sink.  The first of thc fleet to make sail  for  the starting point was the little  tschooner Fleur de Lys,  which   began  hoisting  her  mainsail  at. 9.15.     i>e-  fore      lhe sail   was up  the German  schooner Hamburg started out of *he  hay in  tow of a tug, preparation being made to set her sails after yetting   outside   lhe   Hook.

The air was also q.uite clear,  and  there  was no indication of a return of yesterday's fog.  taken off .about the same time, and a  tug, ran alongside  the big three-master.        At !U0  Lord  Brassy's Sun-  (>   At  10     o'clock  the oilier  English  "competitors,  (lie ship Valhalla,    lhe  'largest vessel in  thc fleet, came     up  >oil"  Sandy   Hook.    Shortly  after     10  ^o'clock  the  committee  in   charge   of  f;the  race  hoisted   the signal   ".Get  .ready    for    sea" and  the  American  fe'-aehts   began  leaving the bay.     All  the yachts in going out went just  astern of the stranded Caronia, and  were given signals-of "Good luck,"  by thc -big Curiardcr.  At 10.40 the entire fleet was on  the way to the starting line at the  Sandy Hook lightship. At that -Amc  the weather began to thicken' ������:p  again, and it looked as though there  might be a return of yesterday's fog.  At-11 o'clock the fog Vegan to thicken and the lightship, from .which the  start was to be made, could not be  seen from shore.  At  12.15,   the  time arranged      for  sending  the  yachts' across  the  dne,  lhc  wind  on shore had  hauled  about  to   the  same  quarter  a.s   yesterday,  and  had  brought back with it great  masses of fog, which had caused; yesterday's     postponement.    Thc   wind  was  rolling  the fog into  the  Jersey  shore  in  thick banks.  An hour after thc time set for -the  start., the wind was- from the east,  although it freqtiently shifted a few  points noith.or south of that direction. At J. 15 the wind was blowing  about 5 knots an hour.  In'ian easterly wiud that was   .at  all  that could he desired, the eleven  Atlantic,   Hildcgarde  and   Endymion  yachts finally got away.   The  Ailsa,  crossed on. thc port tack'and were almost  bunched,  and  it seemed       as  shough  they   would  hit  each  other,  bill - they got away safely after get���������  ting  over   the lines, .and. were  soon_.  lost in the haze.  The  Ailsa  was   the first to  cross  the starting line, at 12,  16,0.0, while  lhc  last to cross  the line,  the   Palilalia went in Irons in the light wind  and did not. cross  until  12 5.

GOVERNOR-GENERAL KILLED  Ufa,  Russia, May   16.���������Major General  Sokolovsky,  governor-general  of  NANAIMO.  It was somewhat of-a surprise here  that Dan McLeod was so easily defeated by Caskeek at Vancouver last  evening.    Evidently   Dan  is  not    >s  young as he used to be.  The  killing of   the  femal  panther  and two cubs near Englishman's river by Messrs Craid, Parks and- Juck-  son  is  a reminder   that  there     are  many     such animals  on  the Island.  One young man  on a ranch not far  from here has killed six within      a  year.   They are not nice, customers  lo  meet,   but it is  very  doubtful if  they  will  attack a man under  ordinary circumstances. .  The McEwaii���������Watson  fight      has  caused a great deal of talk, and given  the young men rather more     unpleasant notoriety than they are,en  tile province of Ufa, was fired at sev- .titled to. Many young fellows have  era! times and. seriously injured this been, equally foolish, and the public  morning in the public garden during never found it out. They are ,iot  ail entertainment.

Vice Governor Bogdonovitch has taken over the administration of the  province.  St. Petersberg, May 17.���������The shooting of General Sokolovsky, governor-  general'of Ufa, yesterday, is the second crime of this character which has  occurred at Ufa, his predacessor,  General , Pogdonpvitch, having been  assassinated on May 19,  1903.  General Sokolovsky, who. was governor of Orenburg and later as military governor of the .same province  acquired a reputation as a stern and  vigorous officer, appointed to restore  order in the turbulent government of  Ufa and adopted a representative policy which long ago caused him to be  marked for the same fate as his predecessor. Numerous revolutionary societies were broken up by General  Sokolovosky and manifestations from  them were not permitted under his  administration, and the last acts ol  the governor-general were lhe dispersal of an anti-Oove*fnment club and  thc suppression of the 'May-day demonstrations, with the arrest of many armcc' demonstrators.  People in  Nanaimo  expect,      vith  the change iiuownership ������f/ the E. &  N.  Railroad,  which will very likely  be announced the first of next month,  to     see arrangements made for  ihe  extension  of  this  road north���������probably  to  the end of  the Island.    It is  only   a business-like   preposition     *id  will,     it is believed; be undertaken  very  soon.    The   building  of       this  road north will make* more >travel m  the   railway  and   will  open  up a  remarkably good country to settlenunt  It  will build up a city on  the north  end  of  the  Island,'but all  of  these  things will help to build up Nanaimo  for this will bring  the people by the  thousands   to  Vancouver   Island,    nd  as   it     is  impossible  lo  have ciries  without .people,  Nanaimo will benett  hy   the development   work   that     is  sure   to  be   done  under   the   C.P.U.  management  along  the  railway.

MURDERED BY  NATIVES  (Associated  Press Despatches.)  Chicago,      Ills., May ,h7.���������Word of  tlie death of Lester C. tp/interton, as  the  result of a night attack by-i.a-  tivc-robbers at Wadyhalfa,  Soudan,  lias  been  received by his paresnt in  Chicago.    Winter ton headed  a   prospecting     party   which  started   from  Louden several, months ago for  Soudan.    On  the  night of March   18th,  Winterton and his assistant,  named  Bowden,     were asleep in _ their hut,  when   two native  thieves entered .'.nd  attacked them with axes.   Winterton  and Bowden  fought desperately,   but  were knocked  senseless.    The  thieves  then  ransacked   thc  house for  gold,  and,      failing  to ��������� discover  any,   fed.  Bowden     recovered, but Wintertou's  injuries   were  by   far  most  serious,  aiid lie died on April'11th.   Hc   /a's  '36 years old.  sians.    Almost at one sweep       the  whole burden of  the vexatious    es-  trictive laws -in Poland and the   Baltic provinces have been removed and  the privileges for which the natives;  have  been fighting for years are restricted, the assemblies of ijthe Polish  nobles are re-established and all the  harsh administrative measures intro-  duced at the time of the, policy     of  reaction on  Russification   was  abol-  lished  after  of ������������������residence of the artisan class. The  question  of its   entirety  is   cf  such  great importance that it has been -'e-  cided to resort to the s������miiig general assembly.  The -Emperor's action h?s -roduced  a splendid impression among the reform t elements, which are expressing  the highest satisfaction.

San      Francisco,     Cal.,   May  17.���������  Capt, Kitsclia.plrfi', of the Russian An**  iliary  cruiser  Lena,   which   has   been  detained at  Mare  Island by  the   ' Init  ed Slates    .130 vein men t,     for several  months,  is about   to leave  for     St.  Petersburg,  whither he has been sum  moiied  by   the   war   minister.   A   request  for  the parole of  the captain  recently  was   made  by   the   Russian  authorities   and  he  has  been advised  by the secretary of state-that he, is  free to return  to St.  Petersburg at  his earliest convenience,  A great deal of interest was manifested yesterday at the announcement  of a match being arranged between  Sine Swanson and Ralph Johnson,  says the Herald, and there can he  no doubt that a large crowd will be  J in attendance to witness the event.  It appears that both these men have  been willing to-meet each other for  Koine time past, but Swanson was  not prepared to go on the mat tinljss  there was a substantial purse in  sight, while Johnstone was not prepared to put up a very big stake.  The Athletic Club then stepped.in  and offered.to put up a. purse of J. 100  for a contest between them provided  it was pulled off at tho same time  as   their    Hurst  chalieni-.i* cup   finals,  .which, after some negotiations with  the men themselves and an arrangement for a side, het .sufficient fo double the purse, was agreed to.  Large window cards announcing the  event are already V'H- and llie Athletic Club    will make   every arrange-  1 nient for  tho accommodation  of  the.  ^crowdx  footing. There' is little doubt that-  the meeting will be a large one, for  it is safe to assume that all who  are interested in sport, and there ������'.re  few people in Ladysmith who do rot  lake an interest in some branch of  it, will be present with (the full intention of getting down  to business.  All who were in Ladysmith last .  year will remember what a Jiu<re sue-I  cess  the July 1st celebration     was,  and the trustees-have a tidy ium,  which can, if the- meeting is agreeable tnnighI, 10. used for helping rn  the ���������celebration this year.  If things were so successful last  year there is certainly no reason  why it should not be the  same again on the coming Dominion  Day. To make this the case one r.nd  all should make a point of being present at tonight's meeting.  GRATTER  FREEDOM  FOR POLES AND CATHOLICS.  (Associated Press Despatches.)

Opinions of members of both parties,  howevsr, inclines the belief that Mr.  Ralfour is now tin a strong position  to dictate terms.  m  Urn  I  i[  ii  J  I  . 'ml  *ihl  RBI UAXtVYT LEDGER.

It could not l.p sawed  olY at the base and allowed to fall  into the street; so Walter Hyde, a  professional pole-c|iinber, was employed to ascend thc height. He  hoi.-ited himself inch by ..inch, by  means of a slip-knot, from, which depended a bo's'n's chair, and had no  oiler support.- When he had raised  himself to within six fe.t of thc gilded ball an the top of ihe staff the  great pole swung, backward and forward under his weight; nevertheless,  lie sawed off a four-foot section, and  having fastened- this-to a rope which  ran through a pulley attached to his  own body, hc lowered it to men on  the roof below. Lowering successive  four-foot sections as fast as he. could  saw them off, Hyde came s'.owly  down the pole, until there was no  more of it left. His task was accom  rlished in Hired hours, nwl his rav  \ ir.c-nt for the work was $150.  J.PlEfiCY AND CO.  WHOLESALE DRYUOODS.  Victoria, B.C.

Not far from this road of Na-  poleon's, at ovcr>'i,C0j(feet above the  sea, stands thc Hospice of St. Bernard, the name of which is known all  over the world.  The dogs they keep have a wonderful instinct for tracking out travel^  lers who are lost in the snow. They  came originally from the Spanish  Pyrenees, but are mixed now with  Newfoundland blood. There are two  separate buildings here, one the actual monastery, with the chapel, the  monks cells, etc. Then there is a  store house and the kennels. There  are only about a. do7.cn monks in this  Hospice. Others of the same order  are found on the Simplone and in the  Rhone valley.  Some idea of the-cold here is  reached when one knows that even in  summer there is generally a thin  foating of ice over the lake near hy.
