I  ESTABLISHED  1892  FRIDAY MORKLjTO,  OCTOBER 4,   1901  DAILY EDITION  WINDANDWATEB  ...  v.  In '  WERE BOTH TO THE LIKING OF SIR THOMAS.  BUT HIS NEW SHAMROCK COULD  NOT SAIL AS FAST AS OLD  . COLUMBIA.  U  NEW YORK, October 3.���In the second .race between Shamrock and Columbia for tlie America's cup the wind was  fresh from the north northwest, which  'remained true and < maintained its  strength throughout the day . In a glorious whole-sail breeze-, which heeled  the big cup contestants down," their lee  rails were awash in the foaming seas  Hcrreshoit's white wonder, Columbia,  today beat Watson's British creation  over a triangular couise of 30 miles by  2 minutes and 52 seconds actual time.  With the 43 seconds which Shamrock  must allow the American boat on account ,of her large sail plan,, Columbia  won the second race of the series''by  3 minutes and 35 seconds, the' fastest  race evei sailed in a cup contest. It was  not only a royal struggle from a spectator's point of view," but it was absolutely decisive as to the merits of the  v,   two lacing machines. There was not a  '   yachting sharp who witnessed the race  "today  who  is  not convinced that the  ���defender is the abler boat, blow high  or. low,  beating,  reaching or,. running,  if  fc  I*//  r  pi  j  i> -'  and sir Thomas and his merry Biitish  tais are doomed to return home empty  handed.,,     , ���. ,- ,  . ���  Again the-'ancient piece of silverware  brought across the ocean fltty years .ago  is safe. Again American, supremacy in  marine architecture has been vindicated.  Sir Thomas has been wishing tor wind  that would bury Shamrock's lee rail,  .and today, he had it. The wind today was  strong and true, blowing around 18  knots from the northwest, and at every  point of sailing, except perhaps running  belore the wind, in which the defender  has already^ taken'the measure ot-Hhe  challenger, 'the Yankee, sloop proved  herself abler than Watson's model. From  f*-< the time'* she crossed*.ttie starting'line,  _ 1 minute and 43 seconds behind the mug-  l_> hunter, until, she pickeu and passed the  Irish boat, three miles* after rounding  the,second mark, Columbia's pace'was  .faster and she behaved better than her  "rival.  Reaching for the flrst mark, 10 miles  'down Long Island shore with the wind  abaft the beam, she gained 22 seconds.  In the close reach for the second stake  i       she gained 30 seconds, a!nd in the thresh  |       to windward on the leg home she gained  "       2 minutes. Not perhaps as thrilling as  '      the remarkable contest of last Saturday,  .*j      ioday_.s irace was  neveitheless  stirring  {      ."rom start ,to finish, and as a marine  l      .spectacle it could have hardly been surpassed.  ,'. It was an  ideal   October   day   also.  ! * There was just enough frost to clear  j the atmosphere and make the whole  .       course visible from the shore. The breeze  '/_ from' the land piled up little swells, but  it was -not strong enough to whip the  froth out-of the racing waves until it  "whitened the face of the sea. Its claws  ���caught the black smoke from the stacks  of  the   excursion  steamers  and  white  -steam   from   their   exhaust   pipes   and  tore them into fragments. The ensigns  and flags with which the vessels were  '     dressed stood out in line like painted  j     _>oaids. The tall canvas-clouded racers  lieeled as the wind smote them  until  '    their  crew  could  "with   difficulty  keep  their footing on the slippery decks, and  the spurting spray was tossed thirty feet  high as they shook their noses free of  the foam crest. On the thresh to windward  tlieir  decks  were  a  smother  of  white   and   fountains   of  foam   curled!  '    away from their bows. The Yankee vlc-  !    tory began  with  the start,  when  the  crafty Barr/by .a system of manoeuv-  '    ring,  convinced  his  opponent  that he  j    was trying to cross the line flrst. Cap-  /. tain Sycamore promptly, took the bait,  ���i   and,, rushing his boat into position sent  �����  lier away almost.in* the smoke ofythe  / sun-'Thereupon captain Barr having ac-  / "wimplisJied.his purpose/tacked back .on  ���iY the line and ���held .off,for,overa'minute.  J YThen-with'a:flying start he went over  / just before the handicap'gun was ��� fired.'-  / Some; of the -patriots j were disappointed  ���/ until the expertsY-iWPlained: that there  I was no windward berth in a-reach where  j the boats could, lawtheir YepHrse straight  ���'"���ior  the ' mark,  and - that the. position  ���"  astern where he .could Ykeep yhis' .eyes,  l' on" every ��� moyeY. of his '."rival 'was; tjio.  ������*��� commanding : one. lie; couldYwatch Ythe1  > Shamrock like a hawk, ��� knowing .that  ,|'. when the gap between them --yras closed,  �����_ the- race, was his.     -y y VYV'* '.  Por the first 15 miles no one Yc9u|(J  fi tell which ship, if either, was gaining*,  so closely were they matched. But grad^  nally it .became apparent that-Columbia,  was overhauling-.theYcJiallenger. Slowly,!  If foot by foot, the white Jjoa-t gained. Both  [were going at a terrific pace. The pa-  \ trol fleet to leeward steaming ahead at  . intervals of four hundred yards had *.<.  \{ difficulty in keeping the excursion fleet  clear of v the winged giants,  ..  overboard before the racers were on her.  As the boats approached the outer  mark, a stream of signal flags were set  on the revenue cutter Gresham, the  flagship of the patrol fleet, instructing  them to change direction by the right  flank. The patrol boats swung around  to lino of west and charged down upon  ���the excursion fleet.  The latter, with bells clanging in the  engine-room for more speed, turned tail,  leaving the flrst mark on the starboard  hand, the racers gibed over their big  booms and went for the ten-mile mark,  Columbia gaining slowly but surely. They  had coveied the flrst ten miles in a little  over 20 minutes. When they swung  around the second mark they took in  their baby-jib topsails and hauled their  wind for the beat home.  Both yachts heeled until their under  bodies veie lifted high over the water,  and their lee rails dipped a foot in the  swirling .billows. In, five minutes after  rounding the last*-mark, it was apparent that Columbia was footing faster  and pointing higher. The rush of the le-  vethians on tlie final tack was magnificent. The excursion boats, black with  people from gunwale ,to- pilot-house,  gathered about the finish as a great  horseshoe. As the white'flyer came on  with a big bone in her teeth well in the  lead, the patrol skippers, with their  hands on their whistle coi ds, could hardly restrain themselves. As she swept  across the finish the din .was soul destroying The concort of sound was terrific until after the gallant Shamrock,  beaten but.*not disgraced, crossed a min-,  ute and 18 seconds later.  Sir Thomas/ on the Erin, did not approach within half a mile of the"flnish  line.) He had seen his high hopes blasted, ���  and presumably he did not care -to be  in at the jubilation at the'defeat of his  champion. But like1 a good sportsman,  after Columbia went over the line, he  ran the American flag'up to the forepeak1  and fired a salute in its honor. The rival  crews cheered each other as they were  towed home behind their tenders.  ' -Within half an hour after the 'conclusion of the.race, the committee; boat,  in accordance with ��� the agreement ��� to  race daily from now on, set the signal for  the lace tomorrow.*       ���<   ".**  '  Sir Thomas although plainly depressed  at the result/of therrace, stoo'd bravely  at the gangway of the Erin, and cordially bid adieu to his guests. He also  entertained a large party,of yachtsmen  and ladies who visitea the Erin after  the day's guests had departed. When  asked what he thought of the race1 he  ���said. "I admit frankly that I got licked  by the best 'boat in a fair* wind and  ���square race, and i maintain and,believe  that there is not a* better sk'ipper. afloat,  than ' captain .Sycamore, norY a" better  crew than-mine. I have as'much esteem  Ior'my captain and cr'ew'asw-tien rcairie  to this side; but they can't do impossible things. They "took as much out of  the boat as could be taken. I am very  much disappointed at the result," -continued sir Thomas, "and the only consolation I have'is that I 'have been licked  by a good, honorable opponent. I know  that the wind was true and that the Columbia won without any fluke."  When asked by a visiting yachtsman  if he felt despondent, sir Thomas pluck-  lly replied: "As long as the. Shamrock  flag flies there is just as much lighten  me, and until I am beaten in the third  raco I'm just as hopeful." , *  CAN FURNISH RIGHT  Sort of Troops.  The Ottawa Journal publishes the fol  lowing interview with major Merritt  in regaid to the efficiency of the mounted troops which were engaged in the  South African war:  A letter regarding mounted soldiers  and the Boer war was repiinted a few;  days ago by the Journal from the Toronto Globe, written by major W, H,  Morritt, of Toronto, who Is at present  here at the musketry school at Rockliffe,  The letter raised some points of interest and as major saw some exceptional service in South Africa,_where  for nearly a year he was aide-de-camp  to general Brabant, commanding the colonial division pf Cape Colony, a Journal reporter called on him yesterday to  ask somo questions regarding points in  his letter..Major Merritt had referred to  the unsatisfactory equipment of the Imperial-Yeomanry or other troops operating in South Africa, and of the mounted'  corps of Eastern Canada. ,  On being asked what changes from  those existing in the Imperial Yeomanry,  he 'advocated, major Merritt replied  that he did not think that at this nib-  mout it could do much good to enter  into details, but he contended that possibilities existed in Canada at present  wanting in South Africa, which if prop-'  erly handled, would result in a force  more mobile, and more effective for that  reason, than any which he had seen  theie. ��� ��� ���  He said that of course the Cape Colony aud Natal Yeomanry made splendid  ���irregular horse, but they unfortunately  could not obtain certain requirements  which could be readily supplied from  Canada, as locu] conditions here had developed exactly what wgs needed to supplement the lacking conditions of mobility oh tho British side.  Jt m^y be remembered that major  Merritt was author}-ed by the Imperial  government to raise a mounted corps  iri Canada if the YDo'mini.uiu ggyernment  consented (the Imperial goye'riiment' to  Rangers" for service in South Africa.  "But do you think the men could be  got?" waa asked major Merritt.  "I believe,',, be replied, "that far from  tho people of Canada having lost all  interest in the desire to stand side by  side with our comrades from Australia,  New Zealand and South Africa, and with  the volunteers and. yeomanry of the  Motherland, who '-'are . still fighting  month after, month, that we could raise  half a dozen moi e regiments.- You must  remember,',' he added, "that besides the  attractions of sentiment and 'military  experience, a rate of pay from N. C. O.'s  and men of from ?1.25 to $2.25 is offered,  with everything found and that the regiment would be disbanded in Canada at  the end of the wai, and^the whole thing  would not,cost .Canada accent, and much  money spent in the country to horse and  equip the corps."  ' ��� 1 ���.,  In reply to a remark of the reporter  that he remembered seeing some sort of  statement that the' Dominion government had.made an,offer recently .which  has' been' refused by the war office.  Major Merritt said that he did not feel  at liberty to go into particulars, but he  would say that as the government seemed to .contend that he should not have  .sent an" offer, through the Canadian  high commissioner, all he wished was  that a second offer he had made .through  the usual channels here might'be'sent  on to the British government.  "I 'believe,"- said the Journal, "you  are taking a course of musketry here.  If you will excuse the question, is it  not-.strange that after a-recent campaign you should go to a school for the  rudiments of fighting?"   '  -The 'major   laughed - and   answered  that he did not mind the question at all.  "This question,"   he"   said, "from   a  fighting point of view, is by all odds  the best for infantry and mounted corps  that F has been inaugurated in Canada,  ^n the'other schools much time is taken  up in learning details connected with  barrack-room   life   and  parade   movements that never takes place before an  enemy, and are not,necessary for,"citizen/soldiery,"   but   in   the, course   at  Rockliffe the whole instruction is in the  actual art of''killing,' (as the Boers say)  .with a rifle." v ' ' '    '  "Supposing that every man in Canada  was an expert with the rifle, and understood the ordinary* movements of riflemen under a leader, what" an'���arm we  'would have," continued the" major.  '/'Well, there is where 'we would be if  the'simple and practical course of instruction'given here was carried broadcast through Canada. . ZZ' '  1 "Of 'course," he'-'concluded, -'I am first  and foremost, and all the time, a lover  of cavalry, and with'increased-'facilities  for mobility, there'is nothing to prevent  the now" prevalent' idea that /cavalry  must', have,' a,t.allr.times,' the-very-best'  shooting iron going,"* no���matter'what it  is. Hitherto no attention has been paid  to the rifle by my arm of the service,  and that is why I am trying-, to remedy  past deficiencies."        >    (    r  To a reference to major Merritt's allusions to the "unsatisfactory condition"  of 'the Eastern mounted corps and an  inquiiy as to why, the "word "Eastern"  was used. The answer* given was 'that  in the matter of mouile efficiency he  'believed there was? no comparison between the splendid practical efficiency  of the mounted police of the Northwest  Territories and the less- ({satisfactory  conditions of the corps of'Eastern'Canada; that he knew nothing or had  asked nothing about the arrangements  in connection with the mobilizationv of  the mounted corps that went from Canada to South Africa, but he would not be  surprised that if the mounted police had  had complete control of the equipment  rof~a~corps~_or~South~Africa��� something  much nearer the maik would have'been  obtained--than was the case.

LONDON, October 3.���The inquest  over the remains of the victims of the  disaster to the turbine torpedo boat de-  .stroyer Cobra was resumed at Grimsby today. A diver testified that he found  the Cobra broken, the end of the forward half >vas jagge4 and looked like  that of a cane broken across a person's  knee. He did not find any trace of the  Cobra having touched a sand bar or a  wreck. She broke olf close to one of her  boilers. The stein half could not be discovered, though the diver searched for  ten fathoms around. The jury rendered  a verdict that the men had been drowned  through' the unexplained buokling of the:  Cobra, and.added a rider to the effect;  that the Cobra had been, too lightly,  built. This seems to dispose of the sug-;  giestion of faulty navigation oil thej  part ���of..,lieutenant B. ��� Smith, commander'���  of the Cobra, who has many friends in  the, United States, his wife being an  American.

TORONTO, QStybsv 3,���George Towns,  the world's champipn oarsman, W3S the \  gue^t q$ Zkonpr ajt a dinner Jasf gyeijing.'  jSpeeeheg *ygj*�� delivered by representa.  tives of the rowing chibsYand athletic'  organizations of the eity. It was hinted    which they tinderbid'the'.'outside'houses,  by one speaker that the Argonaut crew, '���'��� If the' local wholesalers*'were out of the  iAt the meeting of the Nelson Board  of Trade," which was called for last evening, it.was .expected rthat'the differ-  'ences which' have, cropped up between  ' the retail and v. holesale traders of the'  "city and the special committee  of," the'  board upon the question of railway rates  would have come up for consideration,  _but-the meeting .fell short of a quorum  1"and nothing resulted.  'With a' view to ascertaining just how  matters stand at present between the  contending forces a Tribune representative secured-an interview   withy Percy  Chapman,.president of the local wholesalers association,, and chairman of the  special committee of'the board of trade  appointed to draftlat memorial to railway commissioner -McLean upon the occasion-of his* recent'visit to this city.  In   answer   to -a" direct   question   Mr.  t Chapman' admitted that the special committee of the, board/on   railway   rates  had met with some opposition, and from  'an unexpected quarter in their efforts  ���to advance the ^welfare of the wholesale  .houses that were seeking to have Nelson, recognized as the wholesale center  of the, southern',portion of the interior'/  Mr. Chapman-said that matters had virr'  tually been brought to a head by reason  j of-a, letter .which-had, been addressed to  the retail traders, throughout.'the disr  trict'by the'localVetail traders associa->  tion. > Mr. Chapman'declined to divulge  the contents of the letter   at' present  further "than to-say-that it evidenced,  the avowed<purpose"of'the Nelson'Re"-  tail  Traders Association   to   defeat if  possible,.the aim- of, the, special' committee of the board of trade to secure  for the wholesale traders of Nelson a  wholesalers tariff -on* goods -reshipped  ,from Nelson< to retaihtraders rin'an area  .to be_recognizedwas tributary,to Nelson.  In view of this, while" it was evidently  the'purpose ofthe framers'bf the letter to .prevent the locabwholesale houses  from making their,'present-hold upon  the local trade more secure,  they had  struck directly,at the Nelson board of  trade   through- its   special   committee,  and for this reason he thought that the  matter should be   brought' up   in   the  board of, trade before 'being-given further publicity.   If  the   board of  trade  stood for anything he considered that  it certainly stood for' the   commercial  interests of the city.   For'several years  efforts have been directed   toward   the  building up of a wholesale business in  Nelson, and the report of the special  ���committee of the board asking for a  wholesale tariff for the men engaged in  the wholesale trade was but the natural  sequence of these efforts.  Personally   Mr.   Chapman   said   the  present   complications ��� presented   three  _sides_to_him���In_a_m'easure,-as-presi-  dent of the local   wholesalers   association, he represented their interests, and  as chairman of the special committee  of the board of trade he had the interests of the board to consider, and in  addition there was the very considerable  number of citizens, who from the standpoint of city pride were anxious to see  Nelson's claim to commercial supremacy placed beyond dispute.   This threefold position he said made him somewhat reluctant to give out any information until the   organizations   most   directly concerned had an opportunity of  placing themselves on record.    Personally he thought that many of the retail  merchants who   had   been   induced   to  countenance   the   circular   in   question  had done so as the result of being misinformed as to the end sought to be attained by the special committee of the  board of trade in asking for the wholesalers tariff, and he felt sure that-when  the matter was   presented . in its   true  light there   would   be   a   considerable  falling away on the part of the rank and  file of the retail traders from' the' advanced position taken, by ' the   leaders  who were seeking to kill the effect of  the  board- of;, trade's  efforts to secure  for- Nelson due   recognition % from   the  transportation companies' as/a distributing center. Y.Y .....   ;y;;  One ground upon which this opposition to the local wholesalers, is'based is  that they come in direct competition  with the retailers in. the supplying-,pf  large mining companJesY and Yrailroad  contract?..,,, This, however, is friotion  which has cropped up in every center  in which ..wholesale houses/have been  started, especially in their infancy. But  there is a tendency in the present case  to assume that if the local wholesale  houses were deprived of- this business  that it would go to the'local retailers.  This is a fallacy. The conditions of this  trade at present were that the local  wholesalers were put into competition  for it with the wholesale and jobbing  houses in Winnipeg and at coast points.  The tratle that the.local wholesalers se-  'cure from the mines and railway contractors is in the main only that fpr  their own stores, and if Nelson wholesalers refused to sell them they would  simply transfer their business to wholesale centers where no such restrictions  were permitted. So far as his experience went, Mr. Chapman said it was  the exception and not the rule for local  wholesalers to withhold every reasonable protection to the retail traders.  Through its committee the board of  , trade was already on record-upon the  cuestion and its members were not  likely to recede from their present po-���  sition, which would be an admission  .that, in their former action they had'  acted prejudically to the trade of Nelson. In addition to the attention which  the retailers circular"will receive at the  'board of trade'meeting there are "other  matters which will- receive special at7  tention from the wholesalers association  as directly concerning its members.

The extreme penalty of the law has  been meted out to a man named Cal-  istro for violating one of the sections  of a law passed by the parliament of  Canada. Another law passed by the  same parliament has been trampled underfoot repeatedly, yet, as far as heard  from, no one has been punished for violating it. Is there one interpretation of  the law for poor and uneducated men,  like Calistro of Rossland, and another  interrelation for thexe_n_;se_____ir<_. ol.  According to advices -from- -Victoria,  premier Dunsmuir will hand in his resignation   today   and   recommend   that  Hon. D. M. Eberts be sent for to form a  government, and that  the I government  so  formed  will  be   Conservative.

A strike that-has for ten \veeks interrupted business in San Francisco, and  to a certain extent interfered with normal business conditions in many sections of the state of California, has been  declared at an end. For ten weeks the  'men who do the bulk of the wholesale  business of San Francisco fought the  men who worked for them as teamsters  and clerks and laborers, and at the end  of the ten weeks the fight is declared a.  draw. On thes one side was arrayed arrogant wealth; on the other side bull-  headed obstinacy. It seems strange  men who- have the ability to successfully build up large business enterprises cannot realize that the same  forces that have made them successful  are at work trying to improve the material conditions of the men whom they  are compelled to employ. Brains are at  work on both sides; and brainy men  should realize that differences between  capital and labor, which are very seldom  personal or individual, can best be settled by conference. Had the Employers' Association of San Francisco been  less arrogant and the City Front Federation less bull-headed, there would have  been no strike in San Francisco, and  thousands of people in California, in no  way parties to the local dispute, would  today be better off financially. A fight  of much the same kind is going on at  Rossland, in this province. A couple of  arrogant mine managers, whose directors are in London and Toronto, respectively, have undertaken to smash a  miners' union, because Individual mem,-'  bers ol tho union have displeased them.  The _3ght Ms been going on Har months.  when, it is safe*1 to say, it would never  have been 'commenced had the parties  , engaged ,in. it .used a little common  sense. There are mine managers in  British Columbia who have such a proud  contempt for the"average mine worker  vthat it is a wonder there are not frequent cases of personal violence.   The av-'  ��� erage -mine-worker, on the "other hand,  'refuses to ".recognize -'the  mine  mana-;  '*ger's claims, to superiority, and too < often, takes .offence at trivialties, the rej-  suit is friction-that ends in a strike and  resulting-loss fnbt only to'the employer  ;and .employee, but to the" community in  , which they-:live.'  '. "���'.__-   -*i���r-*���: i  i , There ,is little wonder that the British  . net - worste'd so often in South Africa.  Lord'Kitch'ener'recently'issued the folf  lowing^ order:* "The commander-in-  ���"chief in .South  Africa  desires  to'im-  "press officers' in command > of mobile  -"columns that, the 'object of such' col-  "umnfis mobility,^and that he has'learn-  "ed"~tha_ such forces,carry with them  -"furniture, kitchen ranges, pianos, and  "harmoniums, which nullify'that object.  ^'These articles must be handed over, to  , "the nearest stores."  ** ; * ,  ,,,     Protection'-for Miners.-  Seventeen lives" have already been reported, lost as a result ,.of "the Namainio  .explosion and fire." It is* feared the mine  "will have to close do-vm and. hundreds  of w;prkmen thrown out of employment  just at the begining of winter. \ This is  ttie fourth- disaster at- the. place within  the nast'year. There'.is one fact-to add  to these : that miners'.are more cut/oft  from the world in general and~desen-  dent upon employers for conditions'sur-  roundina their place of work than any  other industry in the., world. In no place  can-careless-and eheap-makeshifts-be so  successfully concealedas in a mine.-The  Nanaimo affair may have been an 'accident* and unavoidable. But such accidents have become altogether too common. A criminal liability for neglect  to provide safe appliances is the only  remedy that can be successful. Make it  a penalty that the mine operator can not  afford to incur for merely allowing a  dancerous condition, to exist. No so  called remedy in the way of an action  for damages can do any large amount of  real good. The workman and master  are certainly not on an equal footing for  a battle in the courts. Even if the  miner eventually recovers a sum, sure  to be small, it is no help for the seriod  of starvation which followed the Injury,  but which passed away before aid from  the courts arrived. The laws will be  slow to move in the cause of a small  class, but the public will not see men  murdered and women and children  starv.ed much longer without realizing  that those who kill are murderers, and  those who destroy innocent lives are assassins.���Spokane Chronicle.

Every great city seems to have its own  particular, individual fragrance,   scent,  I,   aroma���what  is  the ,word  to Indicate  '.   something that "smell" is   too   strong  j for, and "scent is too pretty for?

It is'at once  $ 'sharp in your  nostrils ��� and pleasant���  }/ part of the dark, stimulating, and in-  a timate charm of that hoary old town.  '��     There is something intoxicating iu the  ,"/  smoll of   Paris.    It   has   the   scent   of  horse-chestnuts in it in the spring, and  in the" winter a sweet, sharp frasrance  M of wood fires.    It is a trifle heady, as  .j-  the sunshine is in Paris.

There  j- "is a sort of vast, unencumbered airiness  , about it���a look as of a great city of cool  *. stone 'buildings and* straight-walled,  |/. long" draughty streets. The "impression  is almost > like that 'of a _ large house,  swept and garnished, with windows set  ��� , wide for'the air, and with few people in  I.' its empty,echoing chambers. Jt struck  me all the more forcibly,'as a Frenchman I had met shortly hefore-I left told  I.  If  *!me New", York seemed--to-him so .dirty  "-"after ^th'e~tfee-irnS*d" boulevards'*bf 'Paris.'  Paris has1 a sort of elegant, coquettish, .prettishness that makes,one over-  ���look the-mud on the boulevards, and the  m sombre   sunlessness   of   little,   furtive  streets.. But London despises prettiness  of any kind.    It has   magnificent   bits  that New   York   can   never   rival; the  river, down", from   Westminster   bridge,  with'barges training along its swollen  suiface, the fairy spires of the parliament buildings pricking che sky, and the  old arch'1 of the   bridge "sp-nnin._  "the  lasy^current; tho encrusted fianks'of the  Abbey risin_r from their green lawns "in  .".     the heart of the city's; sweating .traffic;  the mossy  centenarian,. trees * in   Ken-  ' '.   sington park���the trees thatonce made  "the Kensington "Woods," where Anne  :      Bolcyn rode in .the   early   spring   to  ;      gather the first branches of the May.  !

In, tho  purlieus of Threadneedle and Lombard  '     streets, where the land is said to be the  i      most valuable in the world, the build-  i      ings are not comparable in general air  of "triumphant prosperity with those of  ,     lower   Broadway   and   Wall street.    In  i      fact, Europe has nothing to offer in riv-  ,-'   airy with the huge modern splendors of  this part of   New   York.    This is   the  .   stronghold of the great American eity  ���the place where its life is at the high-  -   est pressure, where it realizes itself, and  its voice speaks loudest.  When vou go up higher and como to  ���where "the Mile of Millionaires" begins,  yon again find the same suggestion of  extraortliriay wealth and shining clean-  llne-.". Every building is gorgeous in  its ileckless freshness. I saw no i-laco  ' in Europe whero there were so many  fine houses so close together, unless it  - might be the Faubourg St. Germain in  Paris. London has individually what I  should call finer houses���finer, that is,  in their suggestions of a ripe antiquity,  coTored by time into a mellow richness  of tone like a meerschaum pipe. I know  no house in New York that strike*, jne  as _uite so eloquent of'stately uses, aa  having housed princes in a princely way,  as Devonshire, House on Piccadilly. Yet  it,is grim with-"soot, and fronts frown-  inglv on a gravelly court that looks like  a stable-yard. --A few dreary laurels in  tubs deck the balcony over the entrance*.  I- have several times wondered if I had  seen it in Chicago would I have regarded it with the same respect. I showed  it to a friend of mine as my ideal of the  mansion of nobles, and she said, scornfully: "That old barrack* It looks like  .somebody's stable."  U^'t the place; where New York is far  ahead of London or any other continental city, is in its surface transportation.  It is superior in every way. to any system abroad.

Still moie excitedly he cried "Don't you see we're  full up?" I didn't see it at all, and said  placidly that it didn't mattei', I would  stand on the platform. One doesn't run  and jump on an 'omnibus often, and  one likes to "enjoy th'e sensation to the  full. The conductor then became distracted and cried his woes to the surrounding air. I was evidently infringing a rule that was of life and death  importance; but I could not get off when  the omnibus was going at full speed and  I told him so He appeared to think differently, for, in the midst,of out parley,  he took me suddenly oy the "arm and  .pushed me off."Why I was not brplten  into, pieces or run over, I can't imagine.  The-proyidence that takes care of drunkards and young children must have had  me in its special care.

Certainly, the  English type of' beauty���which is near  upon six 'feet in 'Height, and the same  width alljthe'way up, with extraordinarily, slender-arms, long, cool throats,  and narrow feet m highheeled slippers���  has nothing' like the^suggestivenes of  vitality and robustness that marksi its  American sisters;" These New'York women must be almost twice the weight  and very nearly the same'sheight as the  English beauties I had'seen in Hyde  Park and Bond Street. .A comparison is  hardly fair,.as they are notjof''the same  class, New York being void of its fashionables, of which.

When the float was located by the secretary of the tramway  company a dicker was started between  the plaintiff and the defendant Mason  for the surrender of the float to the  company. It was contended that the defendant Mason offered the sum of ?5,  but that Robitaille held out for $25.

C/'ftfr 1st?  the occasion of, the second trip went prepared to take the float away by force.  Robitaille admitted in his evidence that  he had defied the officei to take the float  or to remove the articles which he had  upon it preparatory to moving the float.  His explanation of this ,act was that  he had no proof either that Mason was  the representative of the tramway company or that'Young was a police officer  as represented. Under cross-examination  he admitted that something was said to  him by the police officer in'the nature  of a warning in Refusing to surrender  possession of the float,  in connection  with which something was said about  him rendering himself .liable for three  year's imprisonment/but as he does not  understand  English  very well ,he  did  not grasp the meaning'qf .the officer.  While admitting resistance" to the officer  in his first efforts to takevthe* float he,  added that when he was ^placed under  arrest and the "'officer .showed,him his  ba"dge he surrendered1 quietly'and held  -out his hands -for the bracelets, which  ���(were put upon him. Upon being'brought  to Nelson Robitaille, secured* bail, and  when the case was'heard'before stipendiary magistrate,Crease he was honorably discharged.* From* the general trend  of,the evidence it ,was shown that the  trouble arose over Robitaille's. notions  j-as   to   salvage   upon 'materials .founfl  adrift in the lake, which were gathered  'from the customs obtaining in the lumbering  distiicts-.of  Canada,  and  it is  .apparent that issue  in .this  case will  "in a measureYturn.upon this.,   >  /'-.When the^fce for .the plaintiff was  .closed, W.rf^Macdonald, wlio appeared  for. b'ot__ atpmAants, "moved for a nonsuit and^^lengthy^'argument ensued.  VJfith respect to the case against defendant1; Young, he   endeavored ' to   plead  the | statute which requires that' in' actions, of .this nature against police officers j^they. j*. eye, entitled to thirty days  notice. This,-notice had not been given.  The coin*t hehX^with this, but Mr. Macdonald-was at.fault in that this defense  was, .not set'out in the defense as filed,  and "forf this reason he refused to .consider it. Aside .from this Mr. Macdonald  argued that the police officer had reasonable ground for belief that he was acting within''the law in making ther arrest  without a warrant. He also devoted'eon-  siderable time to .he malicious prosecution part of .the case as set out in the  pleadings.   In   the ^end, 'however, .the  court refused the application for a,ndn-  'suit as against either of the defendants,  and the case for the defense will lie proceeded with this morning. *   "'  ',,f        '  The hearing of the evidence of the  plaintiff Robitaille, brought out a lively  tilt  between  judge   Form  and  lawyer  _Macdpnald.YRobitaille_is_a_Frence-Can__  adian and evidently impressed tlie judge  very ,favorably. It .soon developed that  the witness and the court had a common  knowledge of salvage customs obtaining  with respect to  drift logs in Ontario.  This prompted the court to cite some  of   his  earlier    reminiscences    around  Belleville, Ontario, and the disposition  which he and his brothers made of saw-  logs which they found adrift. The trend  of the judge's story brought him pretty  close to the section of the criminal code  under   which   the   prosecution   against  Robitaille was laid in the flrst instanee,  which prompted Mr. Macdonald to BUg-  gest that the section of the criminal code  under review might have been framed  for the single purpose of dealing with  such diversions as the court had just  rocited, The lawyer further interrupted  tho  flow  of  the  judicial  recollections  with' the suggestion that they he recorded by the stenographer.  This raised the temperature, of the  court room 'a few degrees and some  very sharp passages followed between  the judge and the lawyer. One retort  from the court was that Mr. Macdonald  was the one lawyer who had practiced  before him and shown persistent insolence, and the rejoinder was that the  judge was the one judge, who in his  twenty years practice as a barrister  had treated him with studied contempt.  The heat was but momentary, and in the  course of a few minutes the justice mill  was grinding along as smoothly as  could be desired.
