A  WEEKLY EblTlON BY MAIL  TWO DOLLARS A YEAR  NINTH YEAR  NELSON:  SATURDAY MORNING JANUARY 26 1901  PRICE FIVE CENTS  4  -'4  CLOSED TO MORTAL VIEW  COFFIN   SEALED   IN   PRESENCE  OF  KINO EDWARD.  "It Must   Not   Be   Opened Again."  Pathetic   Scenes  of the  Occasion.  Cowes, January 25.���A private  service over the remains of queen  Victoria was held this morning.  The coffin was placed on a crimson  dais in the centre of the dining  room and rested upon a silk Union  Jack. A white satin pall was over  the coffin with the royal crown and  insignia of the Order of the Garter  embroidered upon-\ it. Sentinels  with arms reversed stood at the  corners.  Cowes, l9le of Wight, January  20, 12:45 a. ra.���With a pathos and  solemnity such as Seldom mark the  passing away from daylight into  the darkness of a coffins the royal  family yesterday took'' their last  loving look at the features of the  dead queen: ' About ten o'clock' in  the morning the shell was brought  into -the bedroom," where' were  ^waiting king Edward, emperor  William, tlie. duke of Connaught,  sir James Reid, and the royal ladies.  The,latter having retired, sir "James  Reidjjyith reverent^ hands assisted  by three trusted household servants,  in the presence of the king, the  emperor and the duke removed tbe,  body from'the bed to the coffin. In  death it'was lovelier .than in'Ythe'  closing days of life. 'Not a trace pf  ravages of disease was visible. 1..  The 'servants -* having ~ retired;  queen Alexandria.the princess and  the children were recalled, .and  with lingering steps and stifled  .. sobs they passed- slowly ,before 'the  white-robed and peaceful, figure.  At the foot, never moving,, stood  the king, and when the mourning  crowd had passed there remained  only the son and grandson of the  queen. Emperor,' William- wept  even more bitterly than the royal  ladies. Fiually he also retired, and  the king .was left-alone.' Sir James  Reid, beckoning to the -servants  with the coffin lid, asked the king's  instructions. For a few seconds  the king stood speechless" stricken  with emotion at the last farewell.  Then he said quickly: "Close it  finally; it must not be opened  again."  Thus the remains of England's  greatest ruler were forever closed  from human view. Reverently the  coffin was borne into tho dining  ���room.^-Officers and~inen-^from_the  royal yachts took their stand around-  the coffin over which the king,  queen and kaiser gently laid the  robes of the Knights of the Garter,  placing at the head a diamond  crown. Beneath lay th"e royal ensign, while hanging about was the  Union Jack. At the altar was'the  rector of Whippingham who read a  portion of the funeral service in the  presence of the royal family. After  the benediction each placed a wreath  upon the coffin and all retired. A  correspondent of the Associated  Press is informed that the queen's  will has not been opened; and  according to present arrangements  it will not be opened until after the  funeral. Its details are unknown  to the royal family. There is no  truth in the statement that king  - Edward and emperor William knelt  by the bedside of the queen and  Bwore to preserve peace.  A significant feature of all the  deathbed scenes has been the  absolute naturalness and the  absence of false elements. According to a rumor circulating at  Osborne, King Edward desires himself to be styled his imperial  majesty in order to emphasize the  fact that he is emperor as well as  king. Today (Saturday) the local  volunteers and the forces in. the  vicinity will pass through the  chapel ardente, and after these will  pass tlie correspondents of the'  leading papers of' the,.world. A  very remarkable feature of all the  proceeding, is the intense martial-  air which* pervades them. The  naval parade off Spithead is to be  the greatest, if possible, the world  ever saw, and the military arrangements at Windsor will eclipse anything of the kind ever attempted.  Tonight Grenadiers are mounting  their silent guard over the coffin  with guns reversed, arms crossed  and heads bowed. The silence is  unbroken save by an occasional  shuffle from the soldiers in changing  their uneasy positions.  THE KING TO PARLIAMENT  Strathcona to the King.  Ottawa, January 25.���Sir Wilfrid Laurier has received by cable  copies of a telegram sent by lord  Strathcona to king Edward VII.  and his reply thereto. Strathcona  to his majesty: "As the representative of the Dominion of Canada  in England it is my mournful duty  to give expressions to the overwhelming grief of .Canadians on the  death of their beloved queen and to  their heartfelt sympathy with  yourself and members of the royal  family. In Canada and through-  ^ empire there will be  uni-  for the loss of a   ud held in affec-  tionaTB^^HB^^^fe by her people.  May I be perHJ^y to add my own  deepest syinpa'th;  (Signed). Strathcona." ,  King to Strathcona: "Am much  touched by your kind telegram of  sympathy and I ask you to kindly  convey to the inhabitants of. the  Dominion of Canada my warni  thanks.     (Signed)   Edward R." -  ,   - The Military Program. v  London, January 25.���It is virtually settled that there will -be an  imposing funeral procession through  London,  headed by the king, em-  .perorl William and* lord Roberts.  The route will be nearly the same  as that of lord Roberts' triumphal  entry, but' reversed. "Mr. William'  St. John Broderick, secretary bf  state^ for war,-< and lord Roberts  will go to Osborne-today; to settle  the military program'of procession  and the funeral proceedings at  Windsor.       - -> '   .d'T.^1  The Day Canada Will Observe.

Britain _ on'  the death of the queen, adds, referring to the refusal of mayor rVan  Wyck of New.York city to- lower  the flag over the1 city hall: V.The  solitary exception of this attitude  of sympathy and respect is .to. be  regarded as a matter  lation rather than of  IDENTICAL MESSAGE PEESENTED  TO BOTH HOUSES.  Glowing Tributes to the Dead Baler  From Marquis of Salisbury  and Mr.  Balfour.  London, January 25.���Bothhouses  of   parliament   this  afternoon received identical messages from the  king and voted condolence with his  majesty on his -bereavement  and  congratulations on his accession to  the throne.     The lord chancellor,  lord - Salisbury,   and the speaker,  William Cort Gully, read the message in tkie respective houses.  .It  ���was as follows :"> '^Edward Rex, the  king, is fully assured that the house  of  commons   will  share the-deep  sorrow * which 7 has   befallen   his  majesty and   the   nation   by   the  lamentable death of his mother, the  late j queen.   Her devotion to the  welfare   of  her   country and - her  people and her, wise-.and beneficent  rule during the'sixty,' years ofvher  glorious reign will ever be held in  affectionate memory by her .loyal  and "devoted subjects _ throughout  the dominion of the BritislTempire.'-  In the house of commons A. J.  Balfour, first lord of the treasury  and government leader, in, -moving  the address in reply to the message, said the house in alU its long  ^history-had never met'iundei\ sad-^  der circumstances or with a'clearei*  duty to express the universal sorrow of the world,, to Edward VII.  The sorrow~.was felt 'not Y'only ��ts a  nation, but 'as^ an" irreparable per--  sonal loss.  'Never before had, thei  national-, grief",- been . so    deeply  seated.   The end'of a greatK epoch4  had coihe and.the cumulative result;  "pf a��great'ideal���the great example  pf'queen ".Victoria���was the great-i  aalTflia'*n7r>i>la1^liai*lHovoi> 'own     ' Wen  "of cOngratu-  regret. It is  a high compliment that the memory  of our good and pure queen should  be unsullied by any recognition on  the part of Tammany - Hall and its  creatures."  The St. James Gazette says':  "Mayor Van Wyck grossly misrepresented the generous feeling of  Americans when he refused to show  iu New York tlie official respect to  the memory of queen Victoria  which his countrymen are everywhere and by all means in their  power displaying to the world."  eitrthei world -had^ever "seen. ' Her  position*- had * thrown upon her ,,a  life of continuous'labor. Short as  had been the interval between her  final signature of a public document and her final rest it had been  enough to clog- the wheels of the  administration, as witnessed by the  vast mass of untouched documents  awaitingthe hand of the sovereign.  In moving, a double response of  condolence, and congratulation, Mr.  Balfour said .they, all liad.unfailing  confidence that the "great interests  committed "* to ' the' new sovereign  were safe in his keeping, and they  assured -him the-ungrudging support of his loyal subjects.  knew what the queen thought he  knew for a certainty what her subjects would think, especially the  middle classes.  The king came to the throne with  the one great advantage of having  before him the greatest example  possible. He had beeu familiar  for a generation with political and  social life. He enjoyed enormous  popularity and was almost as much  beloved in foreign countries and  courts. .. Congratulations could' be  tendered him with earnest sincerity-  and in the belief that he will adorn  the throne and be no unworthy successor of the queen.. Lord Kimberley, the 'Liberal leader in the house  of lords and *\the archbishop, of  Canterbury seconded the address.  The house then adjourned.

Iu the house of lords  lord Salisbury moved the reply to  the king's message in a speech full  of emotion, He said that in performing the saddest duty that had  ever befallen him he was only echoing the sorrow, deeper than he had  ever seen of the nation, which had  been called forth by the singular  loss, under the dispensation of  providence tliey had suffered and  their admiration of the glorious  reign and splendid character of the  sovereign .they had' lost.* Being a  constitutional monarch with restricted powers she had reigned by  sheer force of character, by the  lovableness of her disposition' and  by her hold on the hearts of her  subjects.  The example which she set of  governing by esteem and love would  never be forgotten, nor how much-  she assisted in the elevation of her  people by their simple contem-'  plation of her brilliant qualities as  wife, mother and woman. Her  wonderful powers of observing with  absolute strictness the limits of her  powers as a ' constitutional sov-'  ereign, at the same time. maintaining steady and persistent influence  on the actions of her ministers inspired -the -greatest admiration.  She always maintained a rigorous  supervision over public affairs,  giving her ministers the benefit of  her advice and warning them of  her dangers. No minister could  disregard her views, "or press her to  disregard them 'without,' feeling he  had incurred ia great danger. She  had brought the country peacefully  through ���, a great ���: change���from. old  to new England. She possessed extraordinary knowledge of what  people - would think.

R.   for   service   on  the,  Stikeen river during the rush of'  "'98.^   They_wereT_mocked-down~and~  transported  by rail  to  the headwaters of the Yukon,  where the  hulls will be rebuilt to suit them  for service on that river.  It is understood that the Japanese government acting upon the advice of the Japanese consul at Vancouver has decided not to issue any  more passports to immigrants  bound for British Columbia on account of the enforcement .ot the  Natal Act by the government of  this province.  Ross Electod Alderman.  Greenwood, January 25.���[Special to The Tribune.]���Nominations  for aldermen to fill tlie place mode  vacant by the enforced resignation  of alderman Kirkwood for lack of  qualification resulted in the unanimous election of Duncan Ross. Ex-  alderman Bannerman, who was defeated in the recent municipal election, claims the seat as being next  in number of votes to Kirkwood.  Raised Insurance Rates.  Montreal, January ' 25.���As a  result of. three big fires .-within a  week in which it* is estimated the  loss exceeded three million dollars  the fire insurance underwriters met  this''morning' and increased insurance rates fifty per cent on risks.  Not only that but they' established  a conflagration district which  includes the entire wholesale district of the' city, and levied an  extra twenty-five cents per hundred  On mercantile property situated  therein. Certain preferred risks  are exempted from, the fifty .per  cent increase, but all are subject to  the conflagration rate. The action  of the underwriters was largely  determined by the necessity - of  improving the fire brigade.

The city of Montreal -is. at  present on the point of deciding  whether to write off one million  dollars of arrears, or to turn them  over to a collection agency.  . .. The yearly report of the Ontario  bureau   of  mines which has just  been published gives the aggregate  -value -of   minerals    produced   as  '.r$8,?8'9,90,l,to secure which $2,930,100  " was divided as wages among 10,003  employees. ���  The mine-owners of the Slocan  "*f~'are~i"'ot~the���only���ones-that���the  great American smelting trust has  singled out as its victims. The Salt  Lake Tribune , predicts that the  next move of the trust will he an  assault <upon the' United States  tariff on lead ores from Mexico and  British Columbia. The trust already  controls' the price of the refined  article, and its next move will be to  - reduce the price of raw ore abolishing the duties.  President Gompers of the American Federation oi Labor does not  . agree with the. action of the Trades  and Labor Congress of Canada- in  its endorsation pf'the principle of  compulsory arbitration.  In a recent  -report which,he  made,.upo,n   the  matter, president Gompers summed  up his objections  in   this   manner:  " Compulsion by any process, and  " particularly by.thepower of gov-  " "eminent,   is   repugnant    to   the  "principle as well as the policy of  ".arbitration.    If   organized   labor  "should  fail   to    appreciate    the  " danger involved in the proposed  " schemes of so-called compulsory  '"arbitration,  and consent to the  " enactment of a law for its enforce-  " ment, there would he reintroduced  "the denial ,of .the, light of jthe  "workmen to, strike, in .defense of;  " their interests, and  the enforce-  " ment by government of ��� specific  " or personal,service^ raud Jabpr, no  " matter how, uitfa^, or, unjust,#nd,  " brought about by any.. means no  " matter' - how questionable;   we  ** would be compelled to work or -  " suffer the state  penalty, which  " might, be    either    mulcting    in  " damages,or going to jail;4.not one  "scintilla   of.distinction,  not one  "jot removed from slavery." President  Gompers  uses  rather strong  language, and his finding can hardly  be regarded as complimentary to  the .heads of the,Canadian congress,  but it  does  not follow that he is  right   and   they   are   wrong.   He  argues   from    the    premises   that  the     wagew earners      are      the  only persons   interested   in  labor  disputes, and that all such disputes  must    be   settled   by   their   own  courts,   with   a threatened strike  held out as  an inducement for  a  speedy, and satisfactory settlement.  But   there    are    other   "interests-  wrapped up in  industrial disputes  which the members of the Canadian  Traces and Labor Congress no doubt  recognize.    Every man engaged in  business in the. community has a  direct and personal interest in the  settlement of   industrial   disputes  which threaten to   interfere with  the business .of the community.   It  is the .recognition of this principle  which makes the demand for compulsory arbitration so strong, since  it secures for all interests .a, voice,  through   the   arbitrators,   in    the  settlement   of   the   dispute.     To  enforce any demands  which they  may ;rnak;e .upon .employers wage-  earners must have  the support of  public sentiment.    They may strike  without it,'and .entail great loss to  their employers, themselves,   and  the business interests of their community ; but it is  to prevent just  such .occurrences that the system of  compulsory reference to arbitration  is   resorted   to.     When    opposing  forces get   at   loggerheads   as   to  whether a man shall receive $2.25  per day a,nd be charged ,75 cents  per day for board, or  whether, he,  shall be paid $2.50 per day and be  charged $1.00 per day for '���board,  there   is not  much  hope   of any  .arbitration   short   of   compulsory  arbitration.    There   is   no ground  for the assumption that arbitration  courts   will   be   unfair,   and   this  being so, Canadian unionists need-  have no fear that the,Trades and  Labor   Congress of   Canada   are  In the South Seas.  Victoria, January 25.���Great devastation was caused and a.number  of natives drowned  by the hurricane at New Hebrides on the 7 th,  8th and 9th of December.   According to news brought by the Aroangi,  now at her berth at - Herbertshore,  a   white   settlement,    tremendous  seas carried lighters, boats, ketches  and   wreckage of all  descriptions  ashore.     Innumerable   craft were  wrecked.      The   steamer   Stettin,  steamer Yacht Elberhard and  the  government steamer Stephen were  saved by running into. Matpui for  shelter.  The mission steamer Kingfisher was totally wrecked and the  government   wharf   was   washed  away.    On the 8th the stone breakwater surrounding the New- Guinea  wharfs gave way and vessels inside  were all-wrecked, the loss amounting to 100,000 marks.    A number of  natives  were drowned and many  injured.   Ashore trees were felled  and miles of .plantations damaged.  A fire occurred at, .Gretna mines,  New   South   Wales, in  which five  lives   were .lost.      Rescue   parties  worked all night, but were  driven  back after every effort.   Finallythe  mine, was ordered .sealed down in  an effort to,fight the  fire and the  men abandoned to their fate.    The  miners. burnt to death were John  and Fred Crow.le,   George   Fuller,-  Edwin Buck and James Hy slop.  On arrival at .Sydney, from Victoria, v the. bark Defiance reported  passing a .derelict vessel of 200 to  .300 tons,  *with a -hundred feet of  keel outward,   evidently   wrecked'  a month  or two, in 3-1 south, 166  east.   New Caledonia advices tell of  a craft .coming ,ashore at -Nakety.  .bay, which evidently -was from the'  .'wrecked vessel.   , The   lower   half;  mast was cut through, and planks <  and spars were pinei yellow painted.  A black painted cutter, which was  stolen by .escapes  from _ New  Cale->  donia. and .abandoned, after * their,  escape to the Australian coast, has  been found.on Seaforth islaud, near  ,Boweu, pn. the, west -.coast of Australia.    The news was  given by a  note   found   in   the,cabin   of   the  abandoned cutter.  *******************************t:***9.

O  SATttttDAY JANUARY 26 1901  _a____���B0u   ----���'������   i.-rrr-.r-'t'  Special Filipino Coin.  Washington, January 25.-j-Secre-  tary Gage has- devised a currency  scheme .for the Philippine islands  which has received the approval of  the cabinet and will be recommended to congress, with a request  from,the president for the legislation necessary to carry it into  effect. 'Trade jiiBt now is much  embarrassed because of the scarcity  of- Mexican silver dollars, which for  many years have been the standard  of value and circulating;medium in  all the East Indies! The scarcity is  due to' the presence of -75,000 or  80,000 foreign soldiers in China, who  have to. b,e "p^id regularly in the  n-jO-jey of vthp}r;qwn countries and  ure polnpplled" to change it for  Mexican qollars before it is of any  use to them. The Mexican government,, realizing that the unusual demand for dollars, will soon em-  barrass business in that country,  has taken means to prevent further  exportation, and the consequence'is ���  a rise in their value and tt great  scarcity everywhere.  It is thought best to provide a  special coin for tho Phillipines of  silver, because they have >,always  been accustomed.to use that metal,  exclusively, and the disadvantages  and difficulties that would attend  an attempt to introduce our own  ���system of currency, over there are  so great that the plan has been*  abandoned.

Each of these  dollars, or whatever the coin may  be called,'' will contain 45 cents  worth of silver bullion, and they  will' be furnished ' in unlimited  quantitiesito those,who are willing'  to pay, 50 cents in - gold for them.  They will1- also be redeemable in  gold at the, option of the holder.  The margin of five cents is to givs  an elasticity to-the .coin, which will  naturally , advance, the ' price qf  silver if it;is issued in ,any great  quantities.  These coins will-be disbursed by  the government in the payment of  its regular expenses at the different  army \ posts in the Philippines a.t  their facejvalue,' which is.150 centis  in United States coin, and it is believed that they will soon displace  the Mexican dollars, which contain  a little more silver,-and are there-'  fore of greater intrinsic Rvalue': At  the���present-price-of���bullion���the  Mexican dollar is actually worth  about 52 cents, and the proposed  dollar will be worth only 45 cents.  The proposed coinage would absorb  $2,000,000 to $3,000,000 worth of  silver a month indefinitely, and it  is believed, that it would;eventually  take the place of Mexican dollars in  China and the East Indies, although  the Orientals are very conservative and would hesitate to adopt a  new form of money.  The Rich Are Negligent.  Abram S. Hewitt, formerly  mayor of New York, recently, expressed the following sentiments,  which-will receive hearty endorsement at the hands of .those who are  interested in, the welfare of their  fellow beings:  The advance of industry whioh  h$a brought lis wealth beyond the  wildest dreams of avarice has also  brought on conditions ��� which make  it an absolute ��� impossibility for  some people to live decent, respectable lives. * The rich' have not even1  begun to do what they ought to do.:  Men that I almost worship fpr.  their generosity and solicitude for^  those that have less are not giving;  in proportion to their wealth- the-  half that was given by their families a generation ago. Have we  the right to take all this wealth  and do nothing to correct the $y\\.  created in its promotion?- Oa,n  you qccept these. jnftHona and shut  yoi'-jr eygg to. *feho evils which .weave  iharanelves about the producers?  Can any one be content with such  conditions ? Good' God ! Can .this  be the end to'which we have been  working all these centuries?     For  purchased at such ��� a" staggering  price ? If these terrible tenements,  these overcrowded districts, these  dark and.foul dwelling places', and  all the attending miseries "must go  with industry, then I wish to -God  that every industrial center > could  be' destroyed as was Sodom and  Gomorrah of old, and men be driven  back to the land where they can at  least have the breezes and the green  grass and the sunshine and the blue  of heaven to look up to.  Scotland a Century Ago.  In Life in Scotland a Hundred  Years Ago James Murray, M.A.,  the author, modestly gathered together much quaint and curious [  information. Turning over the  pages casually one' is struck with  the frequent references, under the  section Domestic and Social, by the  ministers of the various parishes to  the increase in the use of tea among  the poorer classes. To it and to  whisky are attributed all' the evils  of the time. "The introduction of  these baneful articles to the poor,  'tea and whisky, will soon," wrote  the minister, of Currie, "produce  corruption of morals and debility  of .constitution." Tobacco was also  in much more common use at the  end of the last century than it had  been 20 years before', and smoking  was quite common among women.  '���The use of tobacco may almost,"  said the minister of Abernyte, "be  said to be excessive, especially  among the female sex. There is  scarce a 'young woman by the time  she has been taught to spin but has  also learned to smoke." One  simple-minded gentleman, the minister of Peterculter, was struck with  the amount of money which was  sent out of the country for this  "very pernicious ' luxury," and  thought camomile flowers would  make a good substitute.  Does It Pay to Advertise?  * A good story is told .of Henry W.  Grady's career in Rome, Georgia, as  editor, etc., of a ��� newspaper whose  struggles for existence were hard  indeed. "Dolph" and "Wes" Roun-  saville, big merchants, declined to  advertise,' notwithstanding Grady's  entreaties. "We don't need to advertise," said "Wes," senior partner. "It^won't do any good. Nobody reads advertisements anyway." "Don't read 'em?" cried  Grady. "I'll show you." The next  day's paper followed one of the editor's brilliant articles with this  notice: .'.'Wanted ��� Immediately,  2000 cats, for which we will pay 50  cents each. J. W. Rounsaville &  Bio." It rained, snowed, and hailed  eats. Every boy in town stole cats  to sell.   Farmers hauled them' in  .from the country. The railroads  brought them by freight and express. They arrived in sacks, bags,  boxes, kegs and barrels. "Wes"  and "Dolph," who had not read the  advertisement, c were nearly paralyzed with fear.    It was the town's  "business"to~stand~abont~the���corner  of the store and enjoy the fun.  Grady himself leaned against a telegraph pole, splitting with laughter,  and crying with every fresh breath:  "Nobody reads -advertisements, eh?  Nobody reads 'em?" The Rounsa-  villes were glad to compromise on a  contract for advertising.  -- ������ ��� ���-> jgy*--  t  j-_j j^3��i  y y-^j  c��^**%^^��<^ <^i^***% <^<-r***% <^  C=3" (Z3 * e^' d ' <Z3�� C3 �� <_=->- c^>' (Z?  .gy.gi.cz?*-  5^> *2vS^i ^'���Q1* ^���^S^SsT*^ ijsr'^'^s? ^j^ ^s*=^'  the Battle  ���M&  of the Holiday Trade has cleared  away it is well to come back to the  every day business of the year as  quickly as jpossible.   ,  **************************  ...

SUPREME COURT MATTERS  Cases to Be Tried at Next Sitting.  Another important law case and  one which is connected with commerce was listed at the court house  -yesterday to be tried at the sitting  of the supreme court in Nelson ou  February Oth. It is that of Brack-  man & Ker vs. Oppenheimer. It  was" practically fought out in  March, 1900, on a counter claim  brought by Brackman & Ker  against -. Oppenheimer, claiming  about $3000 damages by reason of  Oppenheimer, who resides in the  state of Washington, not delivering 37 cars of hay, in accordance  with his contract as stipulated. Mr.  Justice Martin gave judgment for  the defendant Oppenheimer on the  ground that Brackman & Ker's acceptance of Oppenheimer's offer  with regard to the 37 cars, contained  conditions not included in the offer.  Hence the contracting parties never  agreed and consequently-' no contract was made. ,        ,"  The_ plaintiff' appealed to the  supreme court of. British Columbia  from that judgment and reversed  the judgment of Mr. Justice Martin,  the appeal court holding that the'  conditions contained in the accept-'  ance, which was in .the form of a  letter and which was couched in the  language of a contract, had no  effect on such au acceptance and  was simply a .collateral matter  which," 'Oppenheimer could have  regarded or disregarded. The case  was dismissed and was sent back'  for' a new trial, with the point  settled.that there is a valid contract  existing. " The trial will how pro-  ceed,'and unless Oppenheimer can  succeed in showing that the contract was waived as alleged in his  pleadings the court will proceed to  assess the damages against him.  The case involves a great niany  points of commercial law , of great  interest to wholesale men, and .will  be watched by wholesale dealers  generally. .;,- - ' " ���. 7 .  - Messrs. Taylor & Hannington are.  the solicitors for-Brackman '& Ker;  while Messrs. Eiiott & Lennie are  acting for Oppenheimer.
