I  ' It would be difficult to imagine a  iniich faster game of ���������oasl-eMiim than  that witnessed hy a small but* enthusiastic crowd in the Opera House last  evening, the result oi winch entitles  ithe ilowery men to have another  crow, for they deieated the lire light  ers 10     points to 7. Its reinarica-  ble swiftness was, perhaps, the foa-  tureof the g������imc, although tlie c.oinbin  ation and shooting of |fc)tlv teams was  at times good. it was dear uom  the start-off that the balked*'of rivalry between the two aggregations was  'not mere talk- It existed without a  doubt,, and was the cause of some  rough work occasionally, just a li title  bit too rough. However, thc gaim:  was fun pf interest and the crowd im  partial so good* work o������ men m either team  was justly applauded.  The Bowery men claimed two points  more than they are credited  with. At.  thc eni'l of   the second half Sanderson  with a preUy      long shot   placed the  bull for thc Bowery.     Simultaneously  the half-lime whistle sounded  and the  referee, Tom     Ilarrup.  refused to allow '.,the goal,     claiming  lime  was up  before    the ball      was    placed.      The  time-keeper  had  no  whistle  and had  to sliHut      tiine to thc    referee.     lie  certainly  shouted  before the ban was  in the.net  As in the last game the "Firemen  did not show particularly good form  -until-after the- middle of the first half  although they were the fir-st to score-  Their shooting\w������as at fault and some  of them showed a propensity to  throw too high     when passing.

Winnipeg,   Nov.   3.���������A   large       increase in seiious crime iu the easier:!  judicial district of Man toba        was  made  the subject  of  Judge   I^erdiio's  adhress   at  the   opening  of  the     As-  si'cs here yesterday morning. It was  loiritod  out to the Grand  Jury  that  there were  tliir'ty cases  of criminal  LMgriifici.nce on the "docket, \vh*'|rli they  were  to  consider,   ranging  all      ������Uie  way   fiom   that   cf murder   to  pettv  tieff.  The judge stated  that the increase  in crime in the  province since     the  last  Assizes   was  a matter   for      the  gravest   consideration, and  that while  the city of Winnipeg and the province  rnighti be Kuffciriiig   the , penalty  of the  rapid      strides   made  in   population,  and wealth, the crime was otoi of all  proportion  to the increase in pouula-  lion,  and it behooved the oflicers of  thc law ��������� to exercise  the  utmost   diligence  in   Uvo ferret'ing   out   cf  ciinie  and  bringing thc offenders to justice.  One of thc peculiar cases to he. coii.-  sideren r;*s that of a si-jlf-sty.led  bishop  of  one of the Russian  sects,       who-  granted   a d vorce,   and  is iro^w charged   with   ciicouiaging  biganiy.

Scrgius  Yulcich  Wittr,   who comes  into "power  in  Russia  as  minister'  j,  president,  first  saw the light of day .  iii  the Caucasus,   being born .it Tifl- j  0,  in  18*10.  The son of a Russian lm- |  rcaucrate,   who  was a director of one  of     the  df-pailmcnl ������f   lhc ,lliss������atl   |  ministry, he was  by  birth a member ,  of the nobility.  From the public school at Tiflis,  young Write entered the Imperial university nl Odessa, where he was educated in physical science and mathematics. After taking his degree he  visileo. the large cities of. the continent. His stay was a short one, however, and he returned to Russia in-'  tending lo study and to try for a  professorial chair at thc Odessa university, nit he was compelled to  seek his own livelihood, ami thus in  187 7 he began his career as assistant station master in au out of thc  way~laccTiiTthr south  of Russia.  I\l. AVitte's rise in   thc railway service was  meteoric.    From  thc lower  rung  of  the ladder  he  became  director of Uie Southwestern railway, ami  then  chief   of   the Imperial  railroad.  In   1S!J2  he  was   appointed   imiiislcr  of communication     and    soon   afterward   ,became  minister   of   Cm$*-i'f,  holding that  position  until 190:?.  As  finance    minister  he  promoted  industrial   development,   favored   protection  of   home' industries   and   introduced the. gold  standard,  but-probably his most  important work was  -the    building    of  thc  trans-Siberian  railway.   Although   thc   underlpikins  was not conceived  by Witte, it was  he    who  negotiated   the  large  loans  and devised thc ways,and means   by  which Europe and   Asia were unit oil,  connecting the Atlantic with thc Pacific.  In 1903 he was appointed president  of thc commission of ministers and1 a  member of   the council of  the empire  This year at the Portsmouth peace  conference  M.  Witte added   lo his renown  by   the diplomatic ability      he  : displayed    as     thc representative- of  Russia.  As intcllcclualiy M. YVille is a  man of wide vision, so physically'he  towers above the common run of men  ' He is a man of strong lcinpcra*men-t,  kindly disposition and wide expedience.
