George Hamilton, first lord of the admiralty, on rising to speak at the Con servative banquet at Acton, said that he was sony to announce that just Define he came there he received a telegram that her majesty's steamer Serpent was lost on the coast of Spam, and be feared there had loss of life The Serpent, he said, was one of our best cruisers urn} was a valuable vessel, with excellent offl cere and crew He could not tell the cause of the disaster The announcement caused a sensation, and It was evident that many of thoae present would hare thought it proper to postpone the banquet, but no action being taken to that end, the enter taminent proceeded, and af'er the guests had eaten and drank heartily Lord George Hamilton led off in the toasts with an nn usually jolly speech, his rollicking humor provoking peal upon peal of laughter Like the Gordon-Gladstone Affair. The news of this affair soon reached the London clubs and much adverse comment It is consi lered certain that Lord Hamilton's conduct will cause as much scandal against himself and the Tories as was aroused against Mr Glad stone and Ins political adherents by thi alleged presence of the Liberal premier al a theatre on the evening of the day when Gordon's death was announced In the Lon don new spapers The Duke'i Begpectfnl Attitude. When the news of the disaster to hei majesty's steamer Serpent reached Ply mouth the Duke of Ediuburgh, who is oni of the admirals of the navy, was attending a Patti concert On being informed ol what had occurred he hastily left the hall and went to the newspaper offices where dispatches in regard to the sad event were beinx received 1 he duke was deeply moved and ex pressed his heartfelt sorrow for the vie tims and their unfortunate families He did not return to hear the remainder of the concert, but proceeded directlv to hi> Absolutely .Jure. of b'Vlng ponuer.

Will he pro- test his innocence to the emit He now says he has accomplices Will he give their names at the last moment? These are the frreat q lestions and about them centers the real interest in the execution to Wife. Last nuht Mrs Birchall had her final private lew with her husband The stern rules which have heretofore demand ed the presence of a third pirty at all the interviews with Mrs Birchall were not re laxed, and a keeper stood between husband and wife while thej said their farewell words The fear that Birchall would make way with himself in some way and that his wife would furnish him the means to do it, is the cause of all this The anxiety on this score on the part of Sheriff Perry has amounted to a sort of panic and has caused many precautions which are ab- surd and some which seem almost heart- less Ihe fear however, was by no means a groundless one though it was not neces sary to go- to all the- lengths that IIIYO been gone to to prevent any such tut taking place His Mother la Dangerously 111 Mr Arthur Leetham, now of Montreal, but formerly a schoolmate of Birchall, came here j esterday With him was Mrs Ingallia of Montreal who has taken a dwfcy in pour Mrs Birchall Mr Lcctham and Mrs Tngallis went to the jail this afternoon and carried Birchall some flowers They did not see him, of course Nobody sees him except his wife, Mr Wade and the jail attendants. Birchall received a number of letters during the day The majority were from cranks, but one from England brought him the news that his mother and his half brother were danger ously 11! He betrayed a good deal of emo tiKm over this The scaffold will be put in position to- day It will be put in the northwest corner of the jail yard, and Birchall from his cell must certainly hear the sound of putting it together In the town here nothing but the execution is talked of, and it so absorbs all interest aa to notice ably affect business as was the case dur ing the trial The hotels are already fill- ing up, and there will be about 100 news paper correspondents here by to-night, HOLME IS CO-RESPONDENT Mayor Grant 9 Former Secretary Hlxed Up In a Divorce Suit.
