Wo hnvo also declared that iu  our opinion a perfectly n'deci'iinto waler  system for lire prol.eel.iun pin-puses cnn  i he constructed for31.,0!)0 and that in  short the siiui of $100,000 would  limply suffice to pay Iheprico asked  hy (.liu company for their plant, .$70,-  775 and ' cuttiplutu ��������� both die electric  light and water systems to the entire  satisfaction of tho 1-alopayors. Wo  propose'in this issue then to take this  sum : of $100,000 nnd show how we  should come out with it. after acquiring the plant in question.  To begin with the expense side .of  tlio ledger. In the lirst place an  iinnunl sum xtt $7713 would be roquii-  ed to he provided for the interest and  sinking fund on 25 year debentures.  Next comes Iho item of maintenance,  which includes repairs, salaries and  cuti'iMit expenditure lo run and keep  the plant in working order generally.  Thu monthly expenditure on salaries  by tho company at piesent is $200.  including tho wages of lhe electrioian,  limvcr house mini and secrelary. lt is  obvious that this latter, item, the  secretary's salary of ������00 a. month,  would be capable of reduction if tlie  cily owned i.he plant, as the accounts  would of course bo kept iu Ihe oily  clerk's ollice and a small addition to  the salary of Hint oliicial would doubtless lie ali that, would be required to  induce.him to undertake the extra  work.

"ALL  ARE FREE AND EQUAL"  Now York-, August 26.���������A number  of incipient race riots between thc  blacks and whites broke out Here todav. The ciius*. being the shooting  on' Saturday night of Jolm lirennan.  a messenger boy, aged 20 years, by  John Davis, a negro. Brennau was  one of a crowd or whites who taunted  Davis, and bullets from the black s  revolver lodged m his stomach and  chest. He is in a hospital and likely  to die.  Tho shooting was done at Sixtj-  Second street and becoming noised  about, the rough "white element began  to search for negroes. Before daybreak this meming .las Arnold, colored, while passing Forty-Sixth street,  and Amsterdam avenue, was attacked  bv a ctowd of whites and shockingly  beaten.   He was treated at a hospital.  Shortly afterwards, about two  blocks awav. the gang doled cut similar experience to Alexander Balaii-  tinc a colored man who was passing  quietly along. Tn neither cases were  arrests  made.  At 0:30 this morning. !l crowd ol  whites led by Frank Mcl'yltc, 21 years  old wont to a five story tenement on  Sixtieth street, occupied by negroes,  with the avowed ptunose of cleaning  it out. Tliev hail about demolished  all the windows and incidentally  cracked a lieiitl oi two. when the  police r.wooped down on the gang.  McPvlvC and another mini were ar-  teste'd  at 13: SO o'clock.    Jos. Doyle, 1S years old. Idled his  hat with "sloues and took his stand  at Fiftv-Ninth street and Eleventh  avenue." Ho succeeded in inflicting  scalp wounds on two colored men  before a policeman clubbed and arrested him. The above are only a  few assaults which came to light by  ai rests. The lact is that all day  long tho police in the neighborhood  mentioned were kept busy dispersing  small mobs. The consequence is that  the force is unusually on the alert  tonight and prepared to cope with  asy   serious   trouble   should   it  break  out.  . -o   BURNHAM HAD  A CLOSE CALL  HOW THE FAMOUS CANADIAN SCOUT  MADE HIS ESCAPE FROM  THE BOERS.  THE UNKNOWN BOER  THOSE STRATHCOHA HORSES  The Herald asks pardon from its  readers for recurring once more to thc  subject of tlie horses purchased by  Dr.McEachran for Lord Strathcona's  contingent. The matter has already  been pretty fully ventilated in these  columns and the outside public is  by this time fully aware that these  norses have been repudiated as not  by any means representative of the  class -which the Territories cau supply for army purposes.  It will be remembered however that  the criticisms of this and other Western papers were pooh-poohed by interested parties and their journalistic  friends in the east, and there may  have been some doubt as to whether  our criticisms were justified. There  ���������were one or two ranchers tiero at  home who had sold horses to Lord  Strathcona's agent, -ni'O took upon  themselves to deny the truth of tli������  Heraid's statements. Nob idy "ho  knew these seu'-lemtn took any stock  in their attempted explanations, and  the Herald wai.d no' ha.ve t&kcn the  trouble to argue with them.  Mr. H. S. White, whose name lc  lamlliar to the public as the special  correspondent cf the Montreal Star  ���������with the sejoid Canadian contingent  in South Africa has now returu-M to  Canada, and has given to the readers  of the Star the interesting story of  his experiences with the Cam Hai.  troops. One of the most remarkable  things in connexion with the campaign, In Mr. White's opinion was the  astonishing mortality among tho  horses. This he attributes to the fact  that ther were overworked and unde;  fed. Speaking of the Canadian liurbPs  sent out with the second contingent,  he says they bore up wondeif .illy,  and with the Australian and New  ���������Zealand-horses-certalnly���������bore^o-1-the.  honors of the campaign as far hs  ���������horseflesh was concerned. "It was  much harder on the Canadian horses,"  says Mr. White, "for in addition to  the long voyage they had their -winter  coats to contend with. Moreover,  they were perhaps too finely bred for  the work they had to do. .1 refer,  of course, to the horses so'iog with  tho second contingent. The animals  selected for the Strathcona Horse  were.much inferior. In fact, it __iay  not bo generally known that tueso  animals, after losing half their number on the passage out, actually landed In Capo Town with glanders. This  nece-flsitated the delay of the troops  in Capo Town for two or three weeks,  aa the Strathcona's when they got  there were practically dismounted and  had to wait until new mounts could  be obtained for them. They were certainly the worst selected horses In  South Africa. Very little care or  supervision could have been exercised  ia their  selection."  This is the opinion of one who saw  them or what was left of them on  their arrival in South Africa. He  cannot he said to have any Interest.  in tho matter one way or the other',  and he certainly has Bhown himself  a capable critic in other matters con-  ��������� nected with the war. In his opinion  the horses purchased for Lord Strathcona's contingent were the worst selected in South Africa. Need anything more  be said?

Lord Cecil Maimers, writing from  Pretoria, gives an interesting description of Burnham's methods as scout  and a narrative ,of his adventures.  On nearing the Boer lines thc scout's  custom is to proceed on foot, sending  one, and sometimes.both boys���������if circumstances make it advisable���������back  with thc horses. On May 18th when  he was sent to cut '.the irailway  between Johannesburg and Pretoria,  thero being a good deal of material  to carry, ho took one boy with him.  Successfully passing through tlio enemy's lines he was in hopes of celebrating her majesty's birthday by  accomplishing the first break of the  lino on that day, but just as his intention seemed to be ou thc point of  being carried out, it was foiled by  the apearance of a Boer commondo in  his immediate neighborhood. There  happened' to be some unusually large  untbear holes (those fearful traps to  tho unwary rider in this country) near  where they were, and by hastily  doing a little further burrowing on  their own account, both being men of  small stature and bulk, they were  able to go to ground themselves in two  of the holes, having previously con-  cealeed the bag of explosives, etc. ln  a third. Thoy were by no means out  of their fix, however, as the commando proceeded to camp though not  actually over their retreat, in close  proximity to it; and there they were  forced to lie for two days and two  nights, merely venturing out for a  breath of fresher air, and to stretch,  their cramped limbs, during the night,  and then only for short intervals and  with the utmost caution. Eventually  (when their endurance was nearly  exhausted) the Boers moved away,  and on the 26th, 27th and 28th Burn-  ham succeeded in cutting the line ln  three places at and near Zuurfonteln,  about 20 miles south of Pretoria.  Eventually, after many other narrow  escapes of capture, and enduring privations which would havo ended seriously for anybody less hardy than  himself aud his carefully chosen companion they succeeded in. rejoining  Lord Roberts' force on the day of  their entry into Johannesburg. The  importance of immediately destroying, if possible, the Delagoa Bay line  to the east of Pretoria was manifest,  and Burnham accordingly, on .Tune 1,  started to try and accomplish this  object He had to return, but on the  following day he decided to make  another attempt, this time again by  himself. Starting late In the afternoon (as usual mounted and with a  black boy to take his horse when  nearing the Boer lines) he rode eastward..

Instantly wheeling his  horse round and bending low over his  neck he made a bolt for it. and though  a hail of bullets pursued him, he had  got well awav���������500 yards or so���������into  tlio darkness   (this    occurred    at    10  o'clock at night) when his horse rolled   over, shot  dead, crusing  him  and  inflicting  severe   internal   injuries   in  his fall . He was insensible for a long  time..and when he woke ho found that  friends and foes had both disappeared.  There was a. deserted Kaffir kraal m  tlio distance, which in spite of severe  suffering,  ho  managed  to reach, and  after   some   hours'   rest  there,  which  partiallv   restored   his    energies,    he  succeeded  in  getting    to the railway,  fortunately   not  far    away,    and    in  blowing  up  a culvert,    after    which,  knowing, of course, that the noise of  the explosion, or the discovery, sooner  or  later  inevitable,  of the    break  in thc line, would render his capture,  if  he  stayed   there,   a  certainty,    he  dragged himself painfully away as far  as posible to some hiding-place, where  he  acmallv  lay  for    two    days  and  nights without food or drink or covering .of any  kind  save    the    sack  in  which the gun-cotton., was contained.  At the  end  of this  time  he  became  aware that his strength  was  raipdly  failing,   and   that   unless     assistance  came from  either  friend  or    foe    he  was done for.

"I shanf argue the question," said  Miss Jones, "but I'll merely tell you  what came under my own eyes the  last Lime a fire was announced at this  hotel You know the bellboy or the  clerk'raises a cry of fire about every  so often. I'm an old boarder and  consequently t pay no attention to it.  Well a few weeks ago, about 1 o clock  ln the morning. I heard a terrible  yelling of 'fire! fire.'      _ ���������.���������,-_���������_i  " 'They're at it   again,'    I thought,  and I went to the door and looked out  into   tho corridor.      Mr.   Nicely,   who  rooms  at  the  end   of  the  hall,  camo  walking down in a night shirt and a  silk hat      'No immediate danger. Miss  Jones,' ho assured me. 'Plenty of time  to  dress.'      A  gentleman      in  No.  li  stepped   out   into   the     corridor    and  carefully hung    his dress suit on  the  chandelier,    trousers,  coat,    vest and  tie        Then    he wrapped    a    blanket  around  him,  seized   his    gold  headed  cane   and   started   down   stairs.     The  door opposite mine    was open,  and I  could see the flames shooting up past  the window.     It was a real fire,  although  as    we    knew    now,  nothing  came of it.     An old gentleman stood  before  the glass putting the finishing  touches   to  his  toilet.     He    was    all  dressed   save     his   necktie,    and    he  couldn't get that in a bow to suit him.  Three times he tied it, untied it. and  began over again. Then he walked off,  and left his pocket book on the stand.  The  old  professeor who  is interested  in botany stopped    me  as    I  started  down  stairs and    asked    me    if 'this  wouldn't be terrible   on the   Japanese  lillies.'  " 'Where are they?'  I asked.  " 'Why, right there in the back end  of  the  garden,'   he  said    pointing    a  shaking finger at some shrubs he had  set out in a vacant lot 75 feet in the  rear. These are only a few of my own  observations,"    concluded    Miss Jones  haughtily, "but they convince me that  women  do  act    queer    at  fires.       Of  course they do.     But what about the  men?"  bring  the whole  thing  down    on my  head.   That didn't ruffle me, although  1 was five minutes getting untangled;  but when 1  began  lo    dress and  lost  both   collar   buttons,   broke   my   suspenders, stepped on a tack, found my  shoe strings in  a hard knot, dropped  the  soap  ln  the slop  jar and spilled  water  on  my    only    clean    collar,   I  began to get a little   warm   about the  jugular.     I realized  that I.was in for  one of those unaccountable streaks of  prety   bad    luck    that are     liable   to  transform the most amiable man alive  into   a  dangerous,   homicidal   lunatic,  and I ought to have applied the brakes  immediately,  but I  tried to brazen it  through.      It was  no    use,    however.  Before I had    succeeded    ln    getting  dressed I had lost the link out of one  of my collar buttons, cracked my eye  glasses, sat on my new straw hat, hit  my funny bono on the armoir, sprained my back trying to pull out a bureau drawer  that was stuck;   upset a  bottle of  Florida water,    mislaid  my  cano and jammed    my thumb in    the  wardrobe door.     As I was going down  stairs I stepped on the cat's tall, and,  of  course,   she   promptly  howled   and  clawed me ln the leg.     I tried to kick  the brute through the side ot the wall  but  lost  my balance    and struck  tho  landing so hard I  nearly    jarred  the  filling out of my upper teeth.     When  I   finally   reached      tho   sidewalk      I  bought   a   paper   of  a  passing   news  boy and    discovered, after   lie   dlsap  pfciired.  that it was an issue of week  before last.    Well,  that settled II.     I  was on the verge  of madness,   but  I  controlled    myself    somehow,    and as  soon as i'got to my office, I proceeded  com-ly  to  upset  the    inkstand,  overturn  the waste  basket,  break  an  incandescent  light   globe   and  drop   tho  dictionary into the grate.      The office  boy thought I was crazy, but I wasn't.  I  was  simply  pressing  my  luck.  It's  an infallible    system for   breaking    a  run.

One of these, the medulla oblongata, situated at.the head of the  spinal cord, exercises considerable  control over the movement of respiration; while the nerve which it sends  out and which is called ircm Its wanderings the vagus, has a similar  power over the action ofthe heart; so  that when these nerve masses are subjected to any undue excitement the  functions of respiration and circulation are al once interefered with.  For this reason in all cases,  whether of lightning stroke or electric  shock, the sufferer is lo be placed  without delay in the most favorable  position for breathing, so that by en-  $i$A%A������A$A$A$A$A$A$Am������A$A  aJJXBXCS0SOB33dm\  Thc_  Revelstoke Herald  "S  COMPANY.

Chinese  Situation  London, August 24.���������Fierce fighting and disscntlon arc apparently  tollowftig in the wake of the relief  of Pelcin. The Daily Mail publishes  despatches from the Chinese capital  as late as August 17. declaring a  great fire was then raging In tho  imperial city. The Russian commander had declined to accept the decision  of the other generals not to violate the  imperial precincts and street fighting was going on. General Chaffee,  so it is asserted, maintained the Chinese had been ad-quately -punished  already and that it would he unwise  to take the imperial palace. This  explains the withdrawal of the Ac-  ericans after breaching three gates,  as cabled by the special correspondent of Associated Press. The Russian  general maintained however, that his  government had declared war against  China and therefore there were no  reasons to prevent him carrying hostilities into thc sacred precincts. Judging from various, and in many cases  contradictory despatches that have  reached Europe this morning from  Pekin. the commanders eventually  adopted a middle course, for a Renter telegram says associate sentries  were placed to prevent looting, hence  It is presumed that the imperial  buildings, although captu*ed, will not  be destroyed. The fires appear to  he caused by the Chinese themselves.  All the despatches point to the fact  that the latest received here from  Pekin the commanders -were somewhat at bay regarding future action,  awaiting Instructions from their governments. The foreign residents appear to have been sent to Tien Tsin,  although the St. Petersbuig correspondent of the Daily Mail says the  ministers will not leave Pekin until  negotiations for indemnity are underway. Neither the commanders nor thp  diplomatists were in communication  with the Cfhinase government on the  17th of August. They were- then  searching for Prince Tuan. Among  - the puzzling reports as to the whereabouts of the dowager empress is  one frrm St. Petersburg that she is  in the vicinity of Pekin. but surrounded. The emperor appears to  have disappeared completely. It Is  officially reported that the minister  of the Netherlands. Dr. Knobel, was  slightly wounded during the siege.  St. Petersburg despatches announce  good progress in the Malchurian campaign. The town of Mergen was captured on -August 18th." with trifling  Russian loss while the Chinese suffered severely, having 10 guns, 700  rifles and large quantities of ammunition lost to the Russians. The report of risings in Northern Corea are  confirmed. It is believed that these  are not due to ill will towards foreigners but to local dissatisfaction.  According to telegrams'from Shanghai, considerable uneasiness is felt  there over the fact that no despatches have been received from Pekln  since August 20th. Other Shanghai  reports locate Emperor Kwang Su as  under the protection of the allies and  the dowager empress as already captured by the Japanese. Describing  the engagement west of Tien Tsin on  Auguct Gth. it special despatch says:  "The Cth U. S. cavalry worked with  drill-likepreclsion in the hand to hand  fighting and the Chinese, only escaped through the bunglinn of General Dorward." Berlin learns that  there has been further fighting west  of Tien Tsin, which clears the impression' that tho province of Peichili  must be effectively occupied before  peace negotiations will become feasible.  Che Foo, August 26.���������It is rumored  on good authority that Russia. Germany and Japan have declared war  on China and will invite England and  the United States to retire.  Washington, August 25.���������A cablegram has been received from Admiral  Remey in ���������which he states that it Is  reported that the Russian commander  at Pekin has forbidden any communication between his forts and the  Chinese. The most" unsatisfactory  development of the day so far as the  pacific programme of the ' United  States goes, was the receipt of a  despatch from Admiral Remey conveying the lepoits which had reached him of a disagreement between" the  commander of the Russian forces and  the other internationals.' The text  of this dispute was not made public,  -=������������������but��������� it���������was^-said���������on���������good���������^authority.  that the*Russian commander had forbidden communication with the  Chinese on the ground that Russia  t was technically as well as practically  at war with China.  Washington, August - 26.*���������Russia,  Germany and'japan have not declared  war upon China either separately or  lu concert. This statement ia made  upon authority of the highest character. What these nations may do  within the next 48 hours or within  the next fortnight is a matter which  no one in Washington Is prepared to  answer. A brief despatch from Che  Foo, conveying a rumor current there  that Russia, Germany and Japan  had joined in a declaration of war  upon China, aroused some interesting  comment among Washington officials  ana among diplomatic representatives  of tl>c foreign governments resident  here. ��������� in neither official nor diplomatic circles, however, was tho rumor  taken seriously. No Information of  such action^ijas reached either the department of state or the legations of  the governments,primarily interested.  This fact alone in accepted ln official  circles as a suffici .ni refutation of the  rumor. i  The rumcr of wsr hy Russia, It is  explained may -have fcrown, out of  the operation of the troops of the  czar In the protection oll.the southeastern frontier of his empire, or it  may have arisen from the statement  of . the commander of the Russian  forces at Pekln thpt his government  was at -war with China and therefore  he must prohibit communication with  the Chinese. Neither the operations  of Russia on thc frontier nor the  prohibition by a Russian general of  communication with the Chinese  would constitute, lt Ib said, a declaration of war by Russia. No gen-  oral by mere dictum could declare  war. Even his statement that his  government had declared war could  not mako It so. A declaration of  war, it Is pointed out by tho best  authorities, is a perfectly distinct and  obvious proceeding. Thc. understanding among Washington officials of  Russia's action Is that the empire has  declared the three provinces on Its  southeasterly frontier In a utate of  siege. This is altogether different  from a declaration of war. It corresponds to a declaration of martini law  hy Groat Britain, and to n. suspension  of tho right of habeas corpim by thc  United StatcB. It Is pointed out that  Russia hns two objects In hor present  operations,   thc   rescue   of   the   lega  tions and protection of her frontier.  The avowed object of the other  powers is simply the rescue and protection of the legations and other  foreigners. In carrying out Iter second object Russia has seized New  Whang. This was done to obtain a  base of operations from which the  frontier  could   be   easily   reached.  New York, August 2G.���������A London  special cable has the following on the  Chinese situation News has reached  Shanghai that the. Japanese troops  have overtaken ths empress dowager  and the Chinese inipsrial court, 80  niiles lo the south west of Pekin. It  is further stated that the emperor at  once threw himself upon the protection, cf his captors. No confirmation  of the report has, however, been yet  received  from  Japanese  officials.  The American hospital ship Maine  arrived at Hong Kong yesterday. She  will proceed on Friday next to Wei  Hai Wei.

Ottawa, August 25.���������Tho government  is making a couple of changes in tliu  regulations affecting mining in the  Yukon territory. Tho system of retaining for the government the alternate sections or block3 along the  creeks is being abandoned. This was  the plan first tlxed upon by the minister of the interior when tho country first attracted Ihe notice of tho  outside world and was deemed expedient as a means of guaranteeing  an adequate i-eturn for the large public outlay Involved in thq opening and  management of the Yukon district.  Another step the minister .of the interior is taking in the interest of the  Individual miner in the Yukon which  Is to provide that on creeks which are  worth mining by tho placer system  the preference shall be given to placer  miners over hydraulic mining. That  is to say in other words where thc  stream is rich enough to yield a fair  return to,tho individual miner such an  area is not to be handed over,by the  local authorities to hydraulic companies whose grant is a larger one  than    is    allowed    by    ordinary   free  LABOR RIOTS  At  Akron,   Ohio ���������   Several   Arrests  Expected  Akron, Ohio, August 24. ��������� There  was no trouble of any kind in this  city during the night.the streets being  practically deserted except by tho  soldiers, who patrolled all the thor-  oughfaies in the business sections.

The man prevented from landing  is John Hannu, a Swede, who is  credited with having taken the lives  of nine human beings. The captain  of the steamer when apprised of the  character of the man he had on board  his ship was greatly surprised. During the voyage over Hannu was one  of the best conducted passengers on  board. No one ever suspected him  of being a murderer. The information of his being on board the Assyrian was received here from the  department of justice. Ottawa, an  order in council having heen passed  to prevent his landing on Canadian  soil.  The murders were committed, it is  alleged at Stockholm, Sweden, where  Hannu was convicted on- the crimes.  He served 12 years of his .sentence  and then the authorities at Stockholm deported him from the country.  As Hannu had vowed to keep on  killing people, this terrible threat was  the reason for his deportation.  IMPERIAL B/\KK.  OF CANADA  Head Office, Toronto.

CRISIS AT CARDIFF  Not a Pound of Coal Moving���������Thirty  Thousand Colliers Idle  New York, August 24.���������The general  manager of the Taffvale railway in  Wales, refuses to meet representatives of the labor unions. Not a  pound of coal is moving at Cardiff  and 30,000 colliers are idle, says a  cable gram from London to the Herald. This railway Is the main artery  through which the great stream of  Welsh steam coal flows down tn Cardiff. The bulk of steam coal used  by the British navy and mediant  marine is carried from the mini's to  the coast^by the Taftvale railway. The  strike on this railway If not speed ���������  liy terminated must have a disastrous effect on shipping and seriously  embarass the admiralty at a time  when steam coal is a very precious  article.  Kincardine Review: There was once  a Politician who went to the Country  saying, "Give me that Axe and I will  cut down that Tree," His Enemies  went about saying.-'Don't give him the  Axe or he will cut dawn that Tree."  He got the Axe just the same, but  Instead of cutting down the tree he  chipped off two decimal nought eight  inches of bark. And the Tree still  lived and prospered.  Then did that Politician go about,  through the Country saying "Behold  what liars mine Enemies are! Tbey  told you I would cut down that Tree  yet it lives and liourlshes.

B.  of the prospects of the  coining election, said:  " We were asked what, the prospects  of the Liberal-Conservative party were  throughout Canada. He could 'safely  say they wure never blighter. He  would tell his hearers just why he  made this slatinent, and point out  things which indicated it. There was  no better indication than the result in  Manitoba, lt was a straight party  fight. Air. Greenway and Air. Sifton  suited that if Air. "Macdonald were relumed to power, it would be equivalent to electing Sir Charles Tupper and  his party. A band of seven men was  all I lie Liberal-Conservatives bad in  a House of 3S members. Now, Air.  Ahicdouald had a majority of 10, The  Liberals in that province "were pretty  well broken up. from the. rucoid of  the old government as it had been  shown np. In the Northwest Territories and British Columbia. he  ventured l.o say, from observation and  information received from others, that  tlie Liberal-Conservatives would sweep  them. People present could judge for  themselves as to the Aliiritiine Province  lie consider them safe. Everywhere  the party was united. It was "not sn  in lSiXi. The party was defeated by  tbe defection of members. It was  united now, and put. a uilited party  on tlie track of a discredited party,  and it. was safe to say what tbe result  would be. The electorate w-is intelligent and .honest, nud the Liberal-  Conservatives stood in a good position.  They hart lost one man who went over  to the enemy, but there was good  reason fo believe that this loss would  be repaired at the next election. lie  thought, the, party would do as well  next time as thev did in 1S0B. ft would  not surprise him if they did belter.  But. someone asks, how about Quebec?  There was 11 comforting feature in that  respect. It was there the Liberal-  Conservatives slipped up before. Sir  Wilfrid Laurier trot, a big majority in  that province. He got. so many lhat  lie could never hope to do it again.  The Liberal-Conservatives had a  chance of splitting it. They had some  splendid men there, who stood by the  policy of tlie parly in every way.  These men were meeting wilh a good  reception, and looked for gains there.  He considered the prospects encouraging from the goodness of the party's  causi and these indications.  Name  on  Every  Piece  A Fresh Supply Just to  Hand in i-2lb. and i lb.
