P. who was counsel for Morin, tie Montmagn; murderer, again pressing the Justice for the commutation of condemns man's sentence, on the ground that in the appea case one of the strongly nxpressed th opinion that the writ on which the were founded wan not taken in proper tim and the other judges bad also their doubts in the matter. Choquette now points ont4 th numerous respites which have already been given and which morally amounted to hang ing. The case is now under consideration. Mr. Sherwood, Commissioner of Dominion Police, leaves to-morrow for Albany, N. Y. to lay the charge of uttering counterfeit coin against Hopkins. It win be remembered tha the former charge of uttering failed by reason of the commisaioner before whom it came taking the view that extradition was asked for in respect to Hopkins' escape from King ston penitentiary, and not on the grounds o uttering counterfeits. This contention wil not hold in the present case, as the indiotmen on which the extradition is now asked has never been tried. Hon. O. H. Tapper, Minister of Marine and Fisheries, stated to your correspondent that the Government had received no intima tion from Newfoundland of their intention to open negotiations with the United States with regard to the fishery question. He said however, that there is no rule that Canada must be advised of mob action, if it were the intention to take it, as colony could through the Imperial government, deal with the United States without reference to th Dominion. The Minister of Marine and Fisheries has been notified by certain parties in Nova Scotia that if is their intention to ship live .lobster to the English market, and arrangements wil be made with the steamship companies with that object in view.

LONDON, Oct. the parliamentary election which took place in the Eccles divi- sion of Southeast Lancashire to day, Mr. Roby, Gladatonian candidate, was returned by a vote of to for Egerton, Con- servative. _____ The Conservatives carried Eccles by 292 majority in 1886. It was feared that the Dillon-O'Brien flight would affect the chances of the Gladstonians. .The result of the elec- tion was considered important. At a meeting held in Eccles some two weeks since the following letter was read from Mr. Gladstone, dated Hawarden Castle, October 7, 1890 DEAR MB. is not for me to in- struct the constituency of Eccles in the choice of a member which they have now to make, even though I am distinctly convinced that every voter who gives his vote at the present time to a Tory candidate becomes respon- sible, to the extent of the power he the employment of bullets an_ _____ against legal and peaceful meetings of the Irish people, which would not be dared or tolerated in England, but which on well known occasions has been practised in Ire- land, and defended by the Ministry and the majority of the House of- Commons.

Although this was the last spike here great extensions were inevitable; next summer to Battleford, and to Hudson Bay. At the banquet held this evening over one hundred sat down. Governor Royal, responding to a toast, said be expected that soon the population of Saskatchewan would surpass that of Assiniboia. When the Hud- son Bay railway was opened the Northwest could defy the McKihley tariff and Uncle Sam. Mr. Davin, M.P., responded to .the toast of the "House of Commons." He said the railway was due to the money voted by the house. When the order in-council was passed in 1888 it committed the Govemmentl to the principle of the subsidy. He considered Prince Albert had the best country in the world for mixed farming and a splendid site for a city. The railway will bring commercial men and editors, as well as visitors, who will make che country known. We must educate parliament to appreciate the Northwest. The Northwest members had secur- ed by fighting a grant of for immigra- tion. Prince Albert in the Mesopotamia of the NorRhwest would yet eclipse Babylon. This road was a link of the chain, connecting Fort Benton, Montana, and Liverpool, Bag. Mi. McDowall, M.P., spoke to the toast of "Our Railway." He said he hoped to see various industries flourishing here woollen factory, lumber, dairying, etc. He hoped to see the Manitoba and Northwestern railway next and then the Hudson's Bay road. Dr. J ardine pointed out the importance of the road as facilitating the interchange of products, and thought with other districts the condition of the country was prospering. Judge McGuire, responding to the toast of the bench, said the Northwest Terri- tories compared favorably with the rest of Canada regarding crime. He gave credit to the people of Prince Albert for their energy in sending delegates to urge upon parliament the railway legisla- tion from which other districts now reap the benefit.

The old fable ot the wind and the sun. striv- ing together as to which of them should first ennde the traveller of his wraps, is brought to mind. The wind's Muster only made the man draw his garments tighter about him, but when the genial rays of the sun fell upon him IB soon doffed his coat, subdued into softness by the gentle warmth. So .for the most part woman's power will OP chiefly felt in the ntnre when she is. the sunshine of man's life rather than when she adopts the role of the energetic north carter. The baleful influence of the Standard Oil jmpany is seen in Iowa, where a woman has amed her twin daughters Kerosene and Gas- oline.

Honla, a contracting carpenter of this city, has gone to parts unknown, huving sub contractors in the lurch to the amount of Dr. Sequard claims that his elixir hat cured intermittent fever, neuralgia, JMomnia and leprosy. white women who live with Chinamen, and whose antics bad caused complaints from the poor, respectable tenants of the neighborhood, frightened by the appearance of the detective, ran out into the streets like rats from a house afire. Only tjere they found themselves in what the French story writers would call a "cul-de-sac." Attempting to get away from the police in the houses they ran into the police at the intersections of the streets and were arrested as disorderly persons. Chinatown has seen many raids, but none like this. There was no one but an old Chi- naman in the basement of No. 6, but nine women were found on the upper floors. In the rear of the first floor the rooms had been cut up into little closets. Each of these bad a wide bunk, and each bunk was occupied when the detectives came in. There was no venti- lation and the smell of opium was sickening. The women were all young. Most of them were only half dressed, and some had evidently retired- for the night. The Chinamen scampered out of the rooms unheeded by the detectives, but the women were anxious to hide. They crawled under the bunks and slammed the closet doors in the policemen's faces, but they were shoved oub, and while some ran into the street others attempted co escape by way of the roof. It was a difficult task to keep track of the fleeing figures in i.he darkness, especially as Chinamen were watching at every room on the upper floors to sneak them in and hide them. Some of the girls wept and some laughed and seemed to think it a good joke. Most of them were half stupid with opium and half burned pipes and lamps were found in every room. The girls who had run into the street at first did not stop to dress, but the Chinamen brought out wraps to them with which they covered their half naked bodies. The next house west of No. 6 was also full of girls. They had been warned, however, by the fate of the others, and instead of running into the street they locked and barred their doors (lid pm outlthe lights. Attempts to force the doors were unavailing and the police passed on to No. 10. Three girls were found here and driven into the street to join their sisters. No. 11 Doyer has long been notorious. There is a sub-cellar here and the Chinamen retreat to it when they think the police are after them. Recently a dead Chinaman was taken from there by some of the tenants and thrown into the street. A number of girls were known to live in the bouse, and dozens of dresses and other articles of feminine attire were found in the different rooms, but the rirls had flei Nos. and 18, all notori- ous houses, were ransacked and many evidences of feminine occupancy were found, but only. a few girls were caught. They all swore that they lived there alone, but Chinamen's clothee, Chinese ornaments on the walls, Chinese opium pots, pipes and lamps all disproved it. At the corner of Doyer and Pell streets a dozen girls were found in a private room in the saloon on the ground floor. They had locked the door, but opened it after repeat- ed orders from the police. Some of them escaped, however, through the rear en- trance, and were found later in rooms in the other houses. In a two room apart- ment upstairs a girl was .found all alone crouching under the bed. She was only half dressed. The girl insisted that she lived alone, and she Was let go with a warning thai if her story proved untrue she would be arrest- ed some other time for living with a China- man. On the opposite corner a lot more girls were found. The two streets in which the raiding was being done wore a queer eight at this time. The at' the different points were formed around the prisoners, who were lauirhing and shouting all at onoe. At 9.30 o'clock the raid ceased. Nineteen girls were then held by the guard at the junction of Doyer and Pell streets, seventeen more at Doyer and the Bowyer, and twenty- one at Pell street and the Bowery, fifty-seven in all. At the worcTof coinand the two guards near the Bowery moved forward to Pell and Doyer sts. and joined the guard there. So far as possible each policeman had two prisoners. They formed in line in the middle cf the street and-marched up to Mott street, and thence through Bayard to Elizabeth street. The captain led the march back to the sta- tions. When the got in there was hardly any space to move around in the outer room. The girls were in various stages of the majority wore loose wrappers. Some were very pretty and innocent looking, but most were neitber. It took about two hoars to take all the pedigrees. After they, were locked up they kept suuring and shouting until the captain threatened to turn the hose on them.
