It was -doiie cwithout (any' special effort on tlie part 'of -the.company,  and during thc shift the box-car  loader was out of commission for  fully an hour. Mr. A. C.

Alalone, in. speaking on thc matter,  thought that the poundkeeper had  not IVc-en very (busy of late and that  the, resignation should be accepted  by all means.  Aid, Tha also" thought much of the  poun-dkeeper's urork ha-d been overlooked. He complained of the numerous cows which are tied on tho  streets of the city, particularly on  Kitchener street. He stated that  icsidents of this street were complaining-, and thought their complaints' should be heeded.

From there the party will take  the train for La-dy)mith, and after  stopping off here, will proceed to  the Extension mines. The mines  will be working on that day.  In discussing the matter last evening it was decided that, awing to  the fact that no carriages will be  available, it would be useless to at*  tempt to show His Excellency anything cf thc city.

He explained that this, , oi  course, could not come into effect  during the present, council's term  of office, but ,it could be introduced  and passed for the next council. It  was hardly to be expected that aldermen could go on serving on * tho  board if they did not receive su'fli-  cient money to defray their actual  expenses. For instance, at the  present time, if one of the board  happened to be working, on tlie afternoon Lshift, and an important  meeting was to be held that night,  it would be necessaiy for the alderman to loose a shift, or miss tho  meeting. This was often the case'  at present not only with one alderman, but with several.

Havana, Sept. 24.���������It was lumoied  late this afternoon that the government and the -moderates had tacitly  decided to concede practiceally everything to  the Liberals and rebels  TUESDAY     SEPT.   25,  190G  STIRRED THE  UPPER  CRUST OF SOCIETY  Some ajnusuig incidents have occurred along the ioute ot Lhe Vico-  lirgai party on. their present 'trip  A i .Kelson, for instance where tho  party stopped lour days a report tal>  en fiom  a Uieenwood paper says:  'lhe coming of feo many titled pei  nonages   to Nelson sturred the uppoi  crusL  of society  until   it  was t,oft  in  tho upper  sLope,  and caused a'  \ai>t  amount oi iriction between  the mas.  tes,   and   the so-called  classes.     The  .Council  decided   Lhat   tho     reception  would    be as     informal  as possible,  .with   no dance as the 'Go\einor Gen  ���������ral  came  here  to meet all  the people   and., not any particular clafeb   or  clique,     in spite  of   Un.s   facL   ' two  ladies  came to the Mayor and spoke  about- giving a  dance    to   the ladies  of sub.-royalt-.     The      Mayor intei-  ���������viewed   Captain  Trotter  who staled  that the ladies wcic   tired  'and     did  toot  wish any dance.     However,   the  ���������society of Kelson is  resolute so     on  rJ'hursday   a committee   of  nine    ladies   issued  imitations    to a    certain  number  of people  Lo   attend   a,damce  in, honor   of Ladies Sibjl and    Eve-,  I*>n,   and  the war  began.     According  to   Court      ethpict Le      the  vice-regal  paitvV  were guests of  tho Mayor and  ���������all      invitations    should   have    come  thiough him,   but  his   wife   was   noL  even on   the committee.  The leaders,  or   would-be  leaders   of  Kolson    society,  parveniT~aHd  patrician,   as  this  is  a free country had a perfect right  lo get  up   a ball  for  the delectation  of  nobility   and   themselves,   even   if  many m  the community  did consider their conduct of the  affair contra  bonos  mores.     But  in   inviting    the  iwhitc-shirted" boys    'of   the     Rocky  Mountain  Rangers  to   appear  in  full  dress,,  and   lorgetting   Lhe   -jlue-shirL-  ������d chaps,  or asking  then:   to appear  fai regimentals,  a 'bomb   was  thrown  into  the camp that is  still  sizzling.  .The   west  is too  now   for  snob  rule,  and  those members of  tho  sub-royal  fciarty   who   pandered   to   it   -in  Nelson, seemingly stepped aside from tho  finely drawn lines of exact, etiquette,  but,  perhaps their curiosity   to     see  a,  western hoe-down was greater than  their judgement..   The Earl  of Gre>  and' his party  did not" come here  to  raise  envy   and strife   in  the     community  by   favoring   any  clique     or  band   of    tuft-huntcis.      They     -were  here   in  their   official   capacity      to  meet   all on an equal plane.     It is  stated the Earl   regretted  the      unpleasantness,  that  occurred and issued   orders   that in future  cici*") thing  ��������������� his  tour ,��������� would be  sti'ictly   official    and  not    swayed    in   the   least  toy    the . desire    of     uppertendom to  bask   'in,,the. sunshine    of   blueblood  .to the exclusion of their neighbors.  His Excellency took groat inLciesL  tn -Nelson and consulted Lhe Mayor  and others upon a variety of matters concerning Lhe district.

Murder  is punished    with  a  fine  oil  about'  S3   in  lhc  land   of  the   Ma/a-'  That's All   dayas,    a  Malay   tribe  living-  on  tho  island of   Mindiano,   in the PhiUipp-  ines.    The highest penalty which,can'  be  imposed Lu the  tribe   is    a    fine  of  about   $'2o,   computing  in    American money.    This is for publicly insulting-   an old man.     This race has  many peculiar customs,  according to  reports    brought      by men returning  from service   in  the Phillippines.  All  J of them arc carefully    observed,  and  coiistitule the law,  of the land.   Any  violation of thorn are punished.   Tho  old men constitute a   legislative, jud  ical   and executive  body, and all mat  tors  in  dispute -are     brought   before  them for  settlement.     Theft is   punished  by   the    return    of   the    stolen  property, "and  if   that   is    .impossible  the   council   appraises     thc    property  stolen,   and   Lhe    party  who   commit  ted  the Lheft must pay in work,,this  amount    to  the one    from whom the  property  was talct-n.        The greatest  wrong* Lhat   a  Ma.nda.ya can do is to  show disrespect     to  the old.  To kill  a  stranger  is   thu greatest ambition  of the Mapdalayas.    They attempt to  kill  all  strangers   who]; come     among*  them, not as enemies, but merely bo  cause  they  are  strangers.     1-Je    who  Mils  a' stranger  or an enemy is g-iv-  ,cn    an  important     standing in     the  tribe,   and  after    lie bas killed  thirty he  is entitled   to the   highest hon  or,  that of  wearing -scarlet clothing.  Like the Moros,  the Mandaya's are a  deceitful   and treacherous people,  always pretending    to  be friendly,  but  only awaiting a  chance  to take   advantage  of   the  unwary,    Thej'  never  forget   a  wrong  done  them    by any  other tribe,  and,    if it  be the killing  of one of  their number,  they  will  ,if  possible,   lull two   in  return.      They  will   never   attack    openly    or   where  iheir   adversary    has   any  chance   to  defend    himself.      In  their  raids  up.  on   other   tribes  they   kill  thc     men  and   make  slaves   of the   women   and  children.
