Great Democratic Defeat in
That State-
OTHER ELECTION NEWS
Tha  Bopublicana Appear to Have Held
Their Own in All Parts ofthe
Oonntry.
New York. Nov. 8.���Shortly after-
the polls olosed the crowd:, began to assemble in front ot the newspaper
offices on Park Bow to watch the bulletins announcing tho returns, which
were flashed at intervals of 10 or 15
seconds. In less than one honr that
thoroughfare from the Brooklyn
bridge entrance to the post-oitice was
thronged with thousands of mon and
women. Thc street curs and mail
wagons were blocked with the unusu-
ally large assemblage und Ihe police
had plenty of work to keep the sightseers from being injured wheu tho ve-
hiclei made their way slowly through
ihe cheering mass of humanity.
The earliest returns from tlie city
districts favored Roosevelt and the
wearers of the "Bough Riders" but
ton rent the air with yells of victory.
A little later when the bulletins unnounced the plurality in the city proper for Van Wyok and the gain in the
adjoining boroughs tho Tammany cohorts took an innings. The most
eonrenative democrats watched the
tell tale figures as they appeared on
the several sheets of canvass aud said
that the eity voto was away behind
expectations. A prominent Tammany
leader said: "Van Wyck is beaten
and New York city has dofeatod him.
The vote of tbe state for Roosevelt
will smother out looal advantage and I
think the colonel will win by 20,000
nt least." That this man has serutin-
ireil the returns carefully was soon
clearly demonstrated, when one of the
leading Tammany newspapors conceded
the victory tp Roosevelt by -10,000
plurality. This concession wns hailed
with delight by the followers of Roosevelt At nino o'clock the democrats
had given up all hope of success mul
began to figure how far ahead their
opponent would go.
Rough estimates were made that
Roosevelt would win by from 2"), 000
to 80,000, bnt some of tho moro sanguine democratic organs kept liashiug
the cheering news that Van Wyck's
majority in Greater Now York would
more than offset Roosovelt's lead in
the rest of the state. It was Ihe most
orderly eleotion gathering that the police had ever boen oallod upon to handle, ouly one arrest being .niiido.
The utmost good fooling oiisted among
spectators.
IN MASSACHUSETTS.
Boston, Mass., Nov. 8.���Returns indicate the elootion of Wolcott, republican, for goternor. The repub)icnus

one.

OPINION OF THE TIMES
It Hopes lhat the Amerioans Will Show
Themselves Generous Towards a
Fallen Enemy-
Paris, Nov. 8.���The Gaulois, this
morning, referring to today's sitting of
the peace commission says, it will in
uo way modify the Spanish-American situntion. "As the Amerioan
commissioners have orders to await
further instructions from Washington." The Gaulois then says these instructions will depend upou the results
of the elections, whioh, the paper mentioned thinks, will be favorable to the
republicans, adding: "The Amori-
cau government will eventually recognize that pecuniary compensation is
doo to Spain for the evacuation of the
Philippine islands and the negotiations will continne and be brought to
satisfactory conclusion in a friendly
spirit.
Madrid, Nov. 7.���The premier,
Sonor Sagasta, was questiouod today
as lo whether it was n faot that the
Spanish government had addressed n
note to the powers, asking the lattor if
they would support Spain in protesting against "the intentions of tbe
United States towurds the Philippine
islands. " He replied that such a note
lind uot vet been despatched.
BB1TISH   OPINION.
London, Nov. 8.���The Standard says
editorially this morning, "we can see
no allernntive. Spain must aocept as
inevitable the loss of the Philippines.
No doubt the United States will assume n hoavy and scrions responsibility, bnt it adrgurs well for the futuro
tbnt the public mon of Amorica appreciate and are ready to meet it. England will wntoh the experiment with
bvery wish for a favorablo issue.
The Daily Nows wondors whothor
trouble is brewing in the Philippines,
arising from German opposition to annexation.
The Dnily Mail this morning urges
tho American people to pronounco
boldly iu favor of rotaining tho Philippines, "for, otherwise, there will bo a
scramble for ooaling stations that will
endanger the peace of the world.''
TIMES SAYS, BE  GENEBOUS !
London, Nov. 9. ���The Times snys
this morning: "Wbntevor may be
the result of the elections ill tho
United States, the administration has
gono too fur to retreat on the Philippine question, The American reply
mny, perhaps, modify the original
proposals, but thero is no doubt thnt
tho mnin demand will be pressod to a
successful conclusion. It is impossible
not to feel sympathy with Spain und
wo trust thnt, on lhe financial side,
the Americans will show themselves
generous toward a fallen enemy.
After expressing satisfaction that future misunderstanding will be avoided by tho immediate adoption of a solution which was ultimately inevitable, tho Times says: We trust thnt
America has learned to appreciate tho
fuct* thnt commorcinl restriction am'
imperial expansion do not thrive together, but it mnst lie ennfessod that
our sympnthy with tho Americans in
thoir new course suffnrs a great strnin
liy such blunders as tho order for the
regulation of trade at Porlo Rico,
which reads as if borrowed from the
British navigation notj whicli the
Americans found so oppressive "
The editorial concludes by expressing
tho opinion that the now policy and
the promising economio situntion, will
prevent nny recurrence of nny ncute
currency crisis.

IS NOT PLEASED
There Were Jarringlncidents
in His Eastern Trip.
DOGGED BY THE FRENCH
Tho Fieoe of Land That the Sultan Presented to the Emperor Was Forcibly
Taken From the Owner.
Bayroot, Persia, Nov. 8.���Emperor
Willinm is much displeased over several jarring iucideuts of his trip to
Jerusalem. The reply of the Vatican to
his notification of rights acquired at
Mount Zion is considered extremely
curt, while ou nil important occasions
tho French cnusul-gcncral attended
in order to assert France's guardianship of holy places. Moreover, it appears that the Sultan practically took
forceful possession of the land he
presented to Emperor William, the
owner objecting to sell ecclesiastical
property. The authorities here tried
to clear tho harbor of all shipping yesterday in viow of the arrival of their
Gorman majesties, but the steamers
of the Messngeric Maritime, the
French steauiship.compnuy, refused to
leave.
AT  DAMASCUS.
Damascus, Nov. 8���The visit of Era
peror    William    and    the    Empress
Augusta  Victoria   to   Damascus    has
proved most successful and interesting.
Their majesties have visited the
principal nights. This afternoon the
omperor reviewed 6000 mon ot the
Turkish garrison. This evoning a
grand banquet was given iu the em*
poror's honor. The city was bril
liautly illuminated and the streets
were filled with  enthusiastic   crowds.
Tho omperor telegiaphed to tho Sultan an expression of his great gratifica
tion at the cordiality of the   welcome.
ODE OTTAWA LETTER.
Twaddle in the Eastern Papers Regarding
the Position of the Minister of
the Interior.
Ottawa. Nov. 6.���An excollent example of unscrupulous sensationalism
is to bo found in the Toronto Mail-Empire nnd the Ottawn Citizen of the
31st nlli., in an article rehashing tho
old chesnut that "Sifton must go,"
In a half column or so of veriest twaddle, it is onco moro announced to tho
long suffo ring public that the other
members of the Dominion cabinet realize that, to save thomselves, they must
get rid of tho miuistor of the iutorior,
that he has beeu offered tho lieutenant-governorship of Manitoba and that
it remain* to be seen whether ho will
accept or not,
CLEVER MENDACITY.
Tho paragraph is cleverly written
inasmnoh that it appenrs to stato a
great deal and it practically snys
nothing. And uo hotter evidenco of
this is neoded than the little paragraph in nu obscure corner of the next
day's Citizen aunonncing that Mr. Sifton will not go and that the Citizen's
forocast of his intention had been confirmed by the premier. The only
"fOTJOait," in the previous day's ar-
tinle is thut Iho minister would probably stay. The Mail-Empire and Citizen might uow proceed to forecast the
coming of Christinas, aud some warm
weather next July and August with
occasional frost iu tho interim ; they
can securo quite a reputation for prophecy if it is only worked np carefully
upon safe lines ns herein suggested.
NOT A TRUE WORD IN IT.
It is not likely that a half dozen
reodors of either paper set any stock
in the yarn, but for the benefit of oven
that half dozon it mny ho remarked
inoidontly that thero i, no dosire on
tho part of tho Hon. J. O. Patterson to
rotiro before his term expires early in
the next century, and therefore thoro
is no immediate prospect of a vacancy
in tho lieutenant-governorship of
Manitoba, aud therefore the minister
of tho interior has not refused it for
tho oxcoileut reason it has not been
offored to him, and therefore tho Mail-
Empire and Citizen mado the story out
of whole cloth, nnd they know it.
A. NEWSMAN'S   OPINION.
Nowspnper men nre generally credited with being observant and well
posted, their profession nnd daily experience enabling them to form opinions and nrrivo at conclusions, that nro
seldom very far astray. Such being
the ense, it is interesting to note tho
opinion of Mr. Lester M. Hnworth of
tho Yukon Midnight Hun, who iB nt
present down Eust. Ho declares that
"mining men nnd tho  representatives
of the transportation companies say
the Yukon will be a better country 20
years from now than it is today nnd
that mnny of the best posted men and
thoso representing vast amounts of
invested oapital :��.-ne that the country
has a long lifo. " The great thing at i
present required is easier and cheaper j
transportation whioh will make ingress and egress simpler nnd place
the mining camps beyond all danger
of starvation or privation. "With railways" adds Mr. Hnnworth, "good
roads for hauling machinery, and labor at $8 a day the Yukon would ahow
marvellous results."
It is interesting to note also that although the Midnight Sun has been
credited with some of the worst stories
of administrative wrong-doing Mr.
Hanworth indignantly denies that
tnere is any truth in the "yellow
yarns" thst have been bo industriously
circulated by the patriotic, purist opposition press, but on the oontrary declares that his special and most thorough investigation as a journalist,
into each and every story, that has
oome to his notice has proved all of
them to be without foundation.
FROM A BANKER'S STANDPOINT
The annual meeting of the Canadian
Banker's association, recently held
in Toronto, has been, as it always is,
an occasion of great interest and importance to the Dominion, for no business or profession is so closely in sympathy with the prevailing condition
of trade aud commerce and nowhere
can so sensitive a barometer be found
to indicate the state of tbe country.
Tho proceedings throughout, from the
address of the president, and tho discussions at the business meetings, to
the speeches at the banquet, were of
the highest value, though it is true opposition papers would seek to qualify
their significance by a querulous criticism thnt there was a little too much
of a political flavor therein. Of
course, if to point out as did President
Wilkie, that bis year of office bad been
marked by an increase of trade, and
manufactures, by an improvement in
the prico of farmer's produce, by a
development of the gold area in the
Yukon, and the mining districts in
British Columbia and Ontario, and
by the addition of many millions to
the nntion's wealth, if to mention this
is showing undne political bias, then
not only he. bnt many others who
took part, will have to admit the im
peaebment.
NO POLITICS IN IT AT ALL.
Unlike the aforesaid oppositionists
these nre hard-headed business men,
wbo care nothing for the politioal as
pect. to whom it never occurs thnt
there is n political aspeot; for in these
matters, their business is carried on
along recognized economical and commercial lines, and they go at onoe to
first principles for tbe interpretation of
existing conditions, and for the guidance of tbeir operations. It is therefore the more satisfactory and valuable
to find tbe entire proceedings carried
through withont a minor note, everything is prosperous, everywhere is confidence, tbe fnture is as bright as tbe
past has been dark; and that blue
ruin and national disaster, which were
so confidently predicted before the
general elections if that should happen
which has since occurred, is evidently
further off; today than it has been in
a geueratiou.
AU BEVOIB.
The social event, or rather series of
oveuts, of this week has been the farewells to the governor general and the
Countess of Aberdeen. While nnder
any circumstances, the deference dne
to their high ollice, and tbe requirements of social custom, would demand
recognition of the fact that tho viceregal representatives were about to
leave tho country, the functions of
this past week havo, throughout, partaken of a personal character so a most
noteworthy degree Evory organization that has hnd ditrect contact with
their Excellencies and have felt tho individual advantage from that association, and what organization in this
cily nud indeed throughout the Dominion hns, not, appeared to feel an
individual desire for a personal farewell, nnd as a result the past week
hns been tnken up, literally hour hy
hour with valedictory receptions
and   leave-takings.
ALL BEGBET THEIB DEPARTURE
Wlioro evory function has been so
hearty and the oxpression of feeling
iluroat so spontaneous, it is perhaps
Invidious to particularize; still reference may be allowed to the incident of
St. Andrew's church on Sunday morning, when the members of the Gov-
ernnieut houso party, who have worshipped thoro during Ibe past five
years, said good-bye to thoir fellow-
worshippers, amid ovidences on both
sides that tho parting was the occasion of doep rogrot. The Russel house
banquet, tendered by the citizens of
the capital on Tuosday night, and
the genoral publio farewell reception
in the Senate chamber on Wednesday
night offered occasions when similar
proof was in evidence that there was
nothing superficial or prefunotory in
the proceedings. Lord Aberdeen and
his estimable consort will leave the
shores of Canada with the warmest
good wishes of overy class in the community, and their torm of office will
long be remembered as among the
brightest and best since Confederation.
AN UNLAWFUL  POOL.
IARCBAND SORRY
He Makes a Speech at a Cairo
Club.
BRITISH  SHIPS READY
A War With Franoe Will Speedily Settle
the Shore Question For Hew
Foundland.
Cairo, Nov. 8,���Major Marchand,

holdjherself in readiness to scour tho
Grand Banks for the enemy's shipping if war should be declared.
AN ISLAND IN DISPUTE.
Tbe  Chocolate  Kings Ownership of
Anticosti Contested.
Montreal, Nov. 8.���The story that
Chamberlain bad made enquiries of
the governor general regarding the sale
ot the island of Anticosti to Menier,
the French chocolate manufacturer,
has caused the statement to bo' published that Menier's title to the island
is in dispute. Sir Fitzroy MacLean,
O. B., one of the oldest Scotch baronets, writing his relatives, Lieut. -Col.
J. MacLean, of this city, says he has
in his possession a Latin charter from
King George of England, granting
to one of his ancestors in the early
days after Oanada was ceded to the
British orown, the island sitnated in
the Gulf of Bt. Lawrence, known as
the Anticosti. Wben stationed at Halifax, SO years ago with his regiment
(the 13th Hussars), Sir Fitzroy says
he paid a visit to the Island. Neither
he nor any of his ancestors ever assigned this charter, but in recent years
tbey said little attention to their
rights, supposing the lands to be valueless.
Heirs of Francois Bissot, now
living in Franoe also claim the title,
and Messrs. Taillon Bonier and Moran
acting in their behalf, have prepared
a memorial to parliament to establish
them in possession of the island, alleging that the present owner of the
island. Henri M. Menier, obtained his
title to the land under right of purchase from the corporation whioh had
usurped the title of tbe rightful owners.
Cincinnati, Nov. 8.���The grand jury
of Konton county, Ky., sitting in Covington, Ky., today returned indictments against 58 of tbe leading fire in-
surnnce companies of the United
Stntes, Canada and England. The
indictments charged that the companies hove formed nn unlawful pool to
prevent free competition among all insurance companies and their agents doing business in Covington and thns
extort a greater premium rate tban
otherwise would bave to be paid.
STEAD ON   THE OZAB.
London, Nov. 8.���W. T. Stead, writing to tbe Daily News from Sobasta-
pol, after haying had an interview
with the czar at Livadia, reiterates
his conviction of the earnestness and
sincerity of the czar's purpose in proposing disarmament. Mr. Stead says
it is impossible to repeat tbe conversation but be adds: " But my opinion is
summed np in a remark which I made
to a princess of the court, who meeting me as I was leaving, asked me
"Well, what is your opinion?" "I
replied simply,: "I thank God for
him, if he is spared to Russia that
young man will go far. "
Mr. Stead adds that he fonnd the
czar possessed of an exceptional rapidity or peroeptlon united with a remarkable memory and a very wide
grasp of an immense range of facts.
APPEAL ALLOWED.
Victoria, B. O., Nov. 8.���The full
court today allowed with costs the appeal of the defendants in Volkonburgh
vs. the Canadian Western Ranch company from the judgment of Mr. Justice

GRANT TO GERMANY IN TRIPOLI
Important news comes from the east.
As a mark of his great regard for
his new fouud frieud the Emperor of
Germany, the Sultan has decided to
give tbe Kaiser the right to plant a
German colony along the Tunisian
frontier of Tripoli. Thus the Sultan
serves a two fold purpose. He gives
the German emperor assurances of his
great consideration, a concession never
made to a hat3d Chritsian beforo,
and he interposes between his territory
of Tripoli and tbe French colony of
Algiers a power that is likely to
make the frontier line respected. This
grant will givo Germauy a loothold in
northern Africa she is likely to improve upon. When the dismemberment pf Turkey comes, it is highly
probable that all of Tripoli will fall to
Germany and that will bring German
influence to the border of Egypt, over
which and control ot Palestine the
great battles of the fnture promise to
be fought. It is difficult to say how
Great Britain will view this grant.
While Frauce's title to tho Bahr El
Ghazal district will be disputed to the
utmost, doubtless the presence of
Germany in Tripoli will be welcomed,
for whatever may have been the irritation wliich Emperor William caused
in Great Britain by his erratio actions
and his thoughtless utterances it has
never been supposed for a moment tbnt
the German peoplo wero at any time
imbued with n warlike feeling against
Great Britain. Iu fact there is reason
to believe thnt should open hostilities
ensue between France and Great Britain over the occupation by the former
of territory on the Upper Nile, Germany will serve with Great Britain
in the land of the Pharoahs.
Anyone who has watched the trend
of events of recent yenrs must have
been struck by the way in which the
nations have verged towards Egypt,
the centre of the laud surface of the
globe. Italy endeavored to found n
colony on the Red Sea and was driven
ont by tho Abyssinians, actively supported by the Russians, it is now
known. Iu fact this effort almost
made Italy a bankrupt. France now
tries to get a foothold thero and is insensibly tempting ruin, nud now Germany will become firmly established in
Tripoli aud will probably grasp the
whole territory. The ouly one, however, that has met with any Buccess is
Great Britain. That nation has been
tho practical ownor and ruler of Egypt
for some years and she is evidently
nbont to assert that ownership openly,
which may incite armed discussion of
tho matter. However, there is scarcely
enough power in the world to make
Great Britain relinquish her hold on
Egypt, whore she has beon planting
principles of government that cannot be pluckod up.
CHEAP  OOAIi.
Tho first consignment of coal from
the Crow's Nest Pass railway has
boen put upon the Nelson market and
is selling ut $5.75 n ton, wliich is n
groat reduction on last season's figure
when tliis cheap supply was not available. It is of fine quality ns fuel aud
is considered to give much better
results than tho Jcoal formerly iu use
here. Rogular and continuous shipments from the mines to Nelson are
not possible yet.owing to the fact that
the Crow's Nest railway is not now in
a position to handle tho product [as
far ns Kootenny lake, but in a very
short time the road will bo ballasted
aud in fit condition to handle all
sorts of freight, aud nnlimitod coal
can be laid down bere. This is a great
advantage to this placo aud to tho
neighborhood, and when coke can be
supplied, which will be shortly, industries throughout the district will
bonoflt. ft is very fortunate thnt
Nolson is so favorably placed iu this
respect, the principal city on wluil
will be the greatest coal ruilsvftj oil
the oontiuenl, for rlvc ���
ooal measures any    i re ���;   thin

THE   BITTNER  THEATRE OO.
Stirring   Play    Produced
Skating Rink.
at  the
Last night the Bittner company put
on "Michael Strogoif," a stirring play
which abounds in dramatic incidents
and exciting situatious. Space forbids
a sVetch of the plot, but it should be
said that John Waldron as Michael
StrogofT, the courier of the czar, gavo
a very fine exhibition of clever acting.
Tbe part suited him to perfection
and he made the most of it. W. J.
Fredericks, as the Tartar villain, Ivan
Ogoreff, was seen at his best last
night. Mr. Fredericks has given sev
eral able impersonations while in Nelson, but this was the cleverest of them
all. W. W. Bittner played the several
characters of Governor, Emir and
Duke, with his usual finish aud skill,
as did E. Mitchell who took uo less
than four parts, those of the general,
landlord, the fugitivo and the Tartar
captain. E. B. Kelly and Lew Rose,
as the rival war correspondents, were
extremely good, their competition for
right of place at the telegraph office
being especially amusing.
As Martha Sti-ogoff, Michael's
mother, Miss Mattie Choate showed
all her usual skill. In the scene, wheu
she was confronted with Michael
and tho latter's eyes burned, she gave
an exceptionally powerful and effective
piece of work. In the role of Zangarre
the Gipsy, Miss Milly Stevens gave
another proof of her talent, us did
Mrs. Bittner as Nadia, the plucky
young girl who goes to join her father
in exile and falls in love with Michael
on the way.

A Oerman War Ght,j.
On tho night beforo the battlo of Saal-
fleld Prince Louis of Prussia and his adjutant, Count Nostitz, were chatting in
the Schloss Schwarzburg-Iludolfstadt.
Tho prince was anticipating victory when
he suddenly turned pule and rushed from
tho room, pursuing through tho hall a
Shadowy, whito robed figure. Tho soutiuul
saw it also.
Next day Nostitz and the priuco saw the
whito lady on a hill wringing her hands
in despair as tho Germans fell buck. A
few minutes later Louis was killed und
Nostitz wounded. Nostitz told thc story
to his son, and tho son to "Unser Fritz,"
father of tho present emperor.
Tho whito lady's first appearance was
when she was seen in Iho palace at Bai*
reuth in H8(). She appeared eight or ten
times iu tho next century. When thc
French ollicers wero quartered iu I3td-
rcuth, sho frightened tbem, in particalur
General d'Espugnc, who, the day after he
had seen her, pointed to a portruit on the
wall and cried: "It Is shot That means
my death I" He wns killed soon afterward.
Tho superstitious Napoleon wouldn't

bi wc him elsewhere Sho was seeu before

of Frederick William III, of Frederick
William IV, of " Unser Fritz" himself and
of many other members of the reigning
house of Prussia.

A Lincoln attorney who is a church
member wns figuring on taking his son to
thc circus to seo tho animals this year, as
hns been bis custom in tho past ever since
tho youngster has beon largo enough to
appreciate tho menagerie attractions. Tho
son is 16 years old, and he recently announced to his father that ho wus big
enough to go alone. The father was tnken
considerably aback, for he had not counted
on being deprived of the excuse for going
this year that ho had always used beforo.
"Why do you want to go alone?" the father asked.
"I don't know," replied the boy in a reluctant iniyiiier.
"Yes you do,'- said his father. "You
wouldn't tell me that you want to go
alone without a reasou."
"Well, papa," he said, "1 want to stay
out in the animal tent longer than you
do."
The man's wife was in earshot, and ha
has not yot heard the last of the incident

IS   MACPHERSON LOST?
Mr. Welter B. Macpherson of Montreal is causing considerable anxiety
to his friends as be has not been
heard of since October 16. Mr. Macpherson, who had been surveying on
the Crow's Nest Pass railroad, left
Proctor's oamp for Nelson early ou the
morning of the ISth ultimo, and,
so far as is known, has not been heard
of since. It is oonjectured that he
may be with one of the numerous parties of prospectors and surveyors still
in the mountains, nnd will yet reappear. It is stated that Mr. Macpherson's brother has set out from Moyie
City to look for the missing man. Anv
information will be gratefully received by R. S. Kinghorn of tbis

CIVIL SERVICE EXAMS.
There  Will Be a Mid-weak Sailing Prom
Liverpool, Though the Companies
Strongly Objected-
Ottawa, Nov. H.���The contract between the Dominion government and
the Dominion aud Allan steamship
companies for a wookly mail sorvico
betwoen St. John, Halifax and Liverpool, during the coming winter has
tet i signed. The delay iu the execution of the agreement rose because of
the disinclination of tho steamship
companies to arrange their sailing
dates in such a way as to make the
���ervioe most usefnl to Canada. They
insisted tbat their vessels should leave
Liverpool for Oanada on Saturdays,
bnt as the Cnnnrd liners leave there
on that dny for New York, it wns desirable that mid-week sailings be arranged for the Canadian boats so as to
secure the full benefit of the mail subsidy. The government took the position that no object would bo served in
starting two mails from Great Britain
on the same day. Reluctantly the
companies yielded. Thero were also
differences as to tho dates of sailing
from St. John, the desire being thnt
thev sbonld not confliot with New
York sailings. Loss importance is attached to this than to sailings from
Great Britain, as the distance from
St. John to Liverpool ij six hundred
miles less than between New York
and Liverpool. It has been agreed that
for tbe first five trips ouly the sailings
���hall tase place from Liverpool ou Saturdays, bnt after that on Thursdays,
the first sailing from Liverpool on
Saturday, November Vi, and from St.
John on Wednesday, Nov. 30.
Whether the departures from St. John
will be continued on Wednesdays all
winter is not yet definite. Tho vessels
that will be in the service are the
Parisian, Numidian, Califoruian, Labrador, Vanoouver, and Scotsman.
Most of the existing contracts for
steamship service out cf St. John and
Halifax have been renewed.
J. Macdonald, of the firm of D. Mc-
Arthiir & Oo., who lias the contract
for building the new 0. P. R. passenger wharf at Robson, left on last
night's train with a gang of men to
com in ence operations.
J. Martin died yesterday nftornoon

The Ladies Will Canvass for   the   Necessary   Subscriptions.
A meeting was lield yesterday afternoon in tlie board of trade rooms to consider tho question of a public library.
A committee of ladies was present
consisting of Mesdamcs Roderick Robertson, Goepel, Day, Arthur, Taylor
and McCulloch.
The following gentleman were also
present. Mayor Houston, Judge Forin,
Dr. Hall, and Messrs. Bowes, Kydd,
J.. A Turner, Hedley and Crease.
It was decided that the most eligible
rooms available were throe in tho Carney block, which could be obtained
for $16 a month..
It was also stated that the Rev. Akehurst had the offer of the old lending
library from Mr. T. Ward for $110,
which offer Mr. Akehurst was willing
to turn over to the public library, lt
was estimated that the books thus
available had cost between $110 and $70.
The question of raising the necessary
funds was then discussed at great
length, and it appeared that the only
funds now available were $300 promised by the city, and about $1611 more
which might be counted ou from other
sources. It was estimated that about
$1000 was needed to start the library
properly, and that the current expenses, including the attendant's salary, would bo about $75 per month.
Tho mayor suggested that a membership fee of $10 per year should be
charged, the library being free io all,
with the proviso that non-members
wishing to take away a book must
pay a deposit on tbe volume, and also
10 cents for its use.
After a long and rather desultory
discussion, it was decided that the
membership feo should be $10 for a
year, $5 for six months, aud $2.50 for
three months. The ladies also agreed
to canvass thu town for subscriptions,
and report tlio rosult nt a meeting to
uo held next Friday week. In the
meantime no formal steps wero taken
(or the organization of the sooiety, or
(or tho drawing up of by-laws.
The travelling libraries supplied by
the government were also considered
but it was generally agreed that the
terms on which they were lout mnde
them unsuitable for tho present purpose.
All lhe gentlemen present promised
to take an annual subscription.

Schoolgirls Criticise a Madonna.
It is interesting to watch the attitudes
and tho expressions on the faces of the
multitudes of people who go lo see the
Slstlne Madonna of Raphael at the great
art gallery ln Dresden. It ls perhaps the
highest example of human art It represents tho Holy Virgin with the Child ln
her arms appearing to St, Sixtus and St
Barbara, with two cherubs looking over
the balcony beneath, says a foreign correspondent uf tho Chicago Record. It brings
hundreds of thousands of dollars to the city
every year. It occupies a room ln a distant corner al tho royal gallery without
anything else to distract the attention, and
scats have been placed around the walls
for tho benefit of those who desire to study
lt Some stand rapt. Others kneel to
pray as if the Mother of Christ were a living being. Some kneel and cross themselves, while others coolly Inspect the canvas with thealrof critics and connoisseurs.
One day a bevy of schoolgirls came to
seo the painting. They stopped suddenly
before lt, and one of them, more Impressionable than the rest, exclaimed, "Mercy,
Isn't it beautlfull"
"Yes," replied another, with a drawl,
"hut don't you think lt would look better
If tho Virgin were a little t-allerf"
The Song of the Urea.
Several years ago, when the famous old
siren whistle waa blown so frequently at
tho rlvor mouth���no, not by the river
mouth���.a certain cast end family owned a
cow. She was Just an ordinary cow In all
respects save one. The siren whistle had
a remarkable effect upon her, Kvery
blessed tlmo ths whistle started ln to wall
and moan that cow started up a vigorous
series of moos. And the most curious feature about it was that the cow's vocal effort ran up and down the scale In a fairly
close Imitation of ths whistle.
"Too-oo-oooo-oool" would go the siren.
"Moo-oo-oooo oool" would go the cow.
But there was always a wild crescendo
shriek at the end of the siren's effort that
no cow���no matter how accomplished���
eould hope to rival. And this cow���being
a sensible and rather phlegmatic animal���
didn't attempt lt. But her efforts within
reasonable limits never failed te arouse
the hilarious attention nf ths neighbors,
and frequently causod strangers to pause
by the fence and listen open mouthed to
the astonishing performance.���Cleveland
