Sebastopol in the Hands
SOLDIERS JOIN SAILORS IN OPEN
London, Nov. 24-A despatch to Reuters Tele-
gram Company from St. Petersburg says it is re-
ported that there has been a mutiny in the Black
Sea Fleet and that portions of the Sebastopol
garrison have mutinied, killing the chief of staff
and wounding a colonel.
Sebastopol, Nov. 25-The expected mutiny of
sailors who have been on the verge of revolt for
months has come and Russia's stronghold on the
Black Sea is in danger of falling completely into
their hands. The situation is critical. All the
shore equippages are in open revolt, having driven
away or taken the officers prisoners. The Brest
Regiment of Infantry has gone over in a body to
the mutineers. General Nepluff, the Commander
of the Fortress, is a captive. The Bielovok Regi-
ment the only other regiment in the city received
the mutineers with cheers but-thus far it remains
loyal. Some Artillerymen have joined the revolt.
The seventh Army Corps has been hastily sum-
moned from Simferopol eight hours distant. Dur-
ing the night the sailors with Social Democratic
leaders elected, officers and decided upon a pro-
gramme pledging themselves not only not to
pillage, kill or drink vodka but to take measures
to prevent rowdyism.,
Sebastopol, Nov. 26.-Though the mutinous
sailors have not yet submitted but on the contra-
ry have received promises of support from the
crews of the battleships Panteleigh (formerly the
Kniaz Potemkine) in the Cruiser Otchakoff and
though they are in complete possession of Admi-
ralty Point where the barracks are located there
were no: disorders today and the situation is re-
garded as much improved. The mutineers have
been deserted by the Brest Regiment which march-
ed off under arms to a camp formed by loyal sail-
ors and sent a message to Vice Admiral Chouknin
asking his pardon and saying they were ready to
return to duty. The crews of all the ships ex-
cept two refused to join the mutiny or to answer
the signals of the sailors on shore.
The, men of the ships named have not yet mut-
inied. The Government buildings are guarded by
troops. The mutineers apparently are in a state
of excellent discipline. They have constructed
barricades and have placed a guard at the stations
which supply the barracks. They declared to-day
they had risen because their commanders with-
held concessions promised by the Emperor and
that they were ready to hold out until these were
put into execution. The strike of the railroad
men in sympathy with the mutinous sailors is de-
laying the arrival of troops. Fugitives from this
city went in carriages to Simferopol to-day, but
the panic was abated to some extent.
Sebastopol, Nov. 25.--The sailors of this port
:and the Brest Regt. have mutinied and joined the
workmen who are holding a meeting under the
red flag. The city is in a state of panic.
Kiel, Russia, Nov. 24-Troops are pouring in
*to reinforce the Garrison in Poland. One ad-
Sditional regiment arrived here yesterday and two
regiments passed Kiel, marching in the direction
:Warsaw, Nov. 24.-The Governor General has
sent a confidential circular to the temporary mili-
tary Governors recently appointed to the ten Pol-
ish provinces ordering them to consider agitators
ii and rioters as insurgents and to shoot them down
'until they are all exterminated and to disperse
public meetings by the use of firearms.
Mosoow, Nov. 24-By a scanty majority of
!,twenty, the Zemstvo congress yesterday accepted
S the first sections of the resolution declaring the
solidity of the Congress with the principles of the
!Imperial manifesto of October 30th. And assuring
S the government of the support of the Zemstvo
I and municipalities in carrying into effect the
liberties promised by the manifesto, but laying
down as the only means of guaranteeing the
authority of the Douma and restoring order in the
'country, the election of representatives by a
i general direct, equal, and secret ballot, and the
'formal grant to the Douma of the power to elabo-
rate a constitution for the Empire.
Moscow, Nov. 25-There was a sharp division
,of sentiment on the question of Polish autonomy
lat yesterday's session of the Zemstvo Congress
which was devoted to the consideration of the
Polish problem. Over fifty speakers demanded
rto be heard on the question, and while the ma-
jority of them sympathized with the request of
Poles for the abrogation of martial law, many
were opposed to autonomy, looking upon it as the
;first step towards the breaking up of the Empire.
The Executive Committee took into account this
sentiment in adopting the resolution declaring
the Congress accepted, the decision of the Septem-
ber Congress with regard to the autonomy of
Moscow, Nov. 24-The resolution in support of
the government as completed, contains the follow-
ing additions to the measures which the Congress
deems necessary to be adopted before the assem.-
bling of the National Assembly. The abolition
of all exceptional laws, martial law, the state of
siege, and all the special laws in regard to nation-
alities. Permission for the organization of
societies for local self protection is also requested.
Warsaw, Nov. 26-Two bombs were thrown
through the windows of the Cafe of the Hotel
Bristol to-night. The explosions resulted in the
destruction of furniture and the slight injury of
a few persons. No one was killed.
Saratoff, Russia, Nov. 26-A bomb burst to-day
in the lodging house of a student, demolishing
part of the house and fatally wounding the
St. Petersburg, Nov. 24.-The employers of St.
Petersburg have taken the lead in resistance to the
workmen whose constant alternately on political
and economical ground have utterly demoralized
business and brought ruin to all branches of in-
dustry. They have formed an association and
have mutually agreed to pledge themselves not
only to refuse strike pay but to absolutely decline
to treat with their employees op the question of
wages or hours of work until the National Assem-
bly acts. Count Witte has decided that similar
action be taken at the Government works.
Moscow, Nov. 26.-The strike here is spreading.
Crowds of strikers are plundering factories, private
houses and state liquorshops. The military is op-
erating the telephone system.
Moscow, Nov. 26.-The Zemstvo Congress has
resolved to send a deputation to Count Witte to
present the resolution passed by the Congress con-
cerning Poland and to give the Premier a detailed
account of their demands.
St. Petersburg, Nov. 26-Count Witte called
an extraordinary session of the Cabinet this after-
noon and another is to be .held to consider the
situation. Graud Duke Nicholas Nicholloitch,
President of the Council and Commander of the
Imperial Guard was present. This caused a
revision of the question of the Grand Duke being
appointed Dictator but the question has not yet
been decided. It is feared that if Count Witte's
Government continues its present policy it will be
powerless to cope with the increasing problems
by which it is constantly confronted. The Revo-
lutionary tile subsides only to rise higher and the
extreme elements convinced that the Government
must fall are raising their demands proportion-
TURKEY AND THE
PORTE INCLINED TO YIELD TO
THE POWERS DEMANDS.
London, Nov. 25-The commanders of the allied
fleet at Piraeus held a conference yesterday on
board the Austrian cruiser St. George, as the re-
sult of which it is expected the fleet will sail to-
day to seize the custom houses of the Island of
Mytilene. Doubts are expressed as to whether
in the event of the Sultan proving obstinate the
combined fleets wouldd establish an effective block-
ade of the Dardanelles. According to the Stand-
ard, should the naval demonstration be disre-
garded the Powers will give Austria a mandate to
take the necessary military steps for the carrying
out of the proposed reforms.
Vienna, Nov. 24.-The Neue Friei Presse asserts
that the only reply to the Portes' final note will
be the issuance of instructions to Adml. Von
Jediua to begin operations
London, Nov. 24-The Vienna correspondent
of the Standard thinks that Austria may re-open
the question of the conversion of her occupation
of Bosnia and Herzogovina into actual possession.
The Ottoman provinces of Bosnia and Herzogo-
vina were by the treaty of Berlin handed over to
the Austro-Hungarian Government for adminis-
tration and military occupation.
London, Nov. 24-The Vienna correspondent
of the Daily Chronicle says that the Bulgarian
Government has notified one of the signatory
powers of its determination to march troops into
Macedonia if the powers fail to carry out their
plans for Macedonian reforms.
Vienna, Nov. 24-Various and most alarming
rumours have been current here for the last two
days to the effect that some of the Balkan States
are considering a plan to take advantage of
Turkey's present predicament, and to start a
serious movement against the country. These
stories have received credence from the fact which
was learned to-day that Austria had addressed to
the Powers signatory to the treaty of Berlin, sub-
mitting to them the advisability of forwarding to
the respective governments of the Balkan States a
collective note, setting forth that these govern-
meuts must not misinterpret the naval demon-
Berlin, Nov. 25.-The Foreign Office emphat-
ically denies that Turkey's attitude is due to Ger-
many's influence. So far from this being true it
is said that the Sultan is actually angry with Ger-
many because the Foreign Office has repeatedly
advised him to accept the Powers demands.
Athens, Nov. 25.-The international fleet sailed
at noon to-day under sealed orders. British and
French torpedo boats were left behind to keep up
communication with the fleet.
Constantinople, via Sofia, Bulgaria, Nov. 25-
There is absolutely no sign among the Mussul-
mans of Constantinople that they are in the least
way di.tnrtled concerning the question of the finan-
damage. No lives were lost.
Washington, Nov. 24.-Three first class battle-
ships of at least 18000 tons displacement and 18
knots speed, three scout cruisers of 5000 tons dis-
placement, five gunboats with additional torpedo-
boats and torpedo boat destroyers, are the princi-
pal recommendations of the general board of the
navy in the programme of new construction to be
authorized by the next Congress which is now un-
der consideration by the Board on construction.
Tokio, Nov. 26-The steamer Ikuta bound
from a Liaoyung port, collided with the steamship
Fukura, near Shimonoseki last, evening. The
former sank immediately. Eleven of the crew

cial control of Macedonia. The majority are not
aware that such a question exists. The aspect of
the city is perfectly normal and there appears to
be no chance of any anti-Christian movement un-
less the word is given from high quarters.
Constantinople, Nov. 26.-A sign of the yield-
ing sentiment of the attitude of the Porte is that
the Foreign Minister, Tewfix Pasha, on Saturday
visited the British and Austrian Ambassadors with
the object of proposing a modification of the Mace-
donian reform scheme by which the financial dele-
gates of the Powers in Macedonia should be ap-
pointed by the Porte andt designated "Ottoman
Financial Councillors. It is doubtful whether the
Powers will accept this modification but the po-
sition is more hopeful.
Constantinople, Nov. 2q-The fleet of the allied
Powers arrived at the Island of Mytilene to-day.
GREAT B ITAIN.
London, Nov. 24-To-day's Cabinet Council
was attended by all the members with the ex-
ception of the Man is of Sali.milnr, President of
the Board of Trade. It i umlei.-tood that the
resignation of the Marquis of Londonderry, the
President of the Council and the President of the
Board of Education was tendered a few days ago.
The question immediately arose, whether the
collective resignation of the Ministry would not
be preferable to its gradual disintegration, and it
is understood that this was rejected, and that the
Ministers arrived at the decision that it would be
better to dissolve Parliament themselves and ap-
peal to the electorate. Should this course be
followed it will be largelyidue to the well ground-
ed belief that the Liberals would decline to form a
Cabinet before a getieral election places them in
possession of a Parliamentary majority to carry
out the Liberal programme.
London, Nov. 23-The Marquis of Doonshire
has agreed to sell his agricultural lands in County
Down, Ireland, to the tenants The estate is the
largest in Ireland and is valued at about 3,-
London, Nov. 24-The -Marquis of Londonderry
has announced his resignation from the Cabinet.
BUSINESS ACTIVITY IN VLADIVOSTOCK.
Vladivostock, Nov. 24-There has been no
further disturbances here and order has been re-
stored. Ships are arriving daily. There is great
activity in the port. The warehouses have been
burned and nearly all the hotels have suffered
from the torch. The few remaining hotels and
private houses are crowded with hundreds of busi-
ness men who have poured into Vladivostock
since the declaration of peace.
A DEATH AT HAVANA FROM YELLOW
Havana, Cuba, Nov. 21- Mabel Israel, an Am-
erican Jewess 15 years ol;l. lied to-day from yel-
low fever. Two sn.-,e,' '.:ere lakru to the Las
Animas hospital to-day.
ENTERTAINMENT BY MR. NORMAN MAC-
DONALD AT JAMAICA.
Port Antonio, Ja., Nov. 23-Lost night Mr.
Norman MacDonald gave a highly successful en-
tertainnent in the Town Hall here. By special
request Frau Giacomo" was given. Mr. Mac-
Donald and his sister played their parts to perfec-
tion and won praise from all sides. The attend-
ance was not very large, owing no doubt to the
inclement state of the weather.
Lincoln, Mass., Nov. 26.-Fourteen persons
were killed, twenty-five were more or less serious.
ly injured, and probably a score of others cut and
bruised in the most disastrous railroad wreck re-
corded in this state for many years, to-night at
Baker's Bridge station a mile and a half west of
Lincoln on the Fitchburg division of the Boston
and Maine R. R. The regular Sunday night
express from Boston for Montreal ran into the rear
of an accommodation train bound for points on the
Marlboro branch line from Boston.
Harrisburg, Pa., Nov. 24-One trainsman was
killed, and several others injured in a wreck on
the Pennsylvanian Railroad at Thompsontown
Jefferson City, Nov. 24-Eight of ten convicts
at the State Penitentiary suddenly mutinied to-
night, and shot two guards, killing them im-
mediately. Prison ftlii.als succeeded in prevent-
ing the escape of all but four of the convicts, and
pursued the others, overtaking them later. A
fight ensued and three of the convicts were shot
to death, the fourth escaped.
Halifax, N. S., Nov. 24-The Turbine steamer
Turbina arrived last night. She is from Hamil-
ton, via Quebec, and will be in port a week or two
overhauling and h.iving a tank built. The
steamer is to run between Cuba and Jamaica for
the winter. The Turbina came from England
over a year ago, being the first Turbine steamer
built for the Canadian service and has been
running on the Lakes.'
Paris, Nov. 24-A despatch from L'Orient, says
the cruiser Jeaubart will take on armament De-
cember 12, for the purpose of forming part of the
division charged to make a demonstration in
Venezuelan waters. The Foreign Office officials
insist that no division has yet been taken to use
force, but that the Navy department is taking pre-
partory measures so as to be ready in the event of
the failure of the negotiations, to secure a pacific
St. Johns, Nfld., Nov. 23-As indicating the ef-
fect of the retaliatory policy against American
fishermen the Colonial Customs Department pub-
lished to-day a statement showing that thirty
American fishing vessels with cargoes aggregating
45,000 bar rels of herring, sailed from Bay Islands
up to November 23rd last year, while only one
American vessel with 1,300 barrels has sailed to
this date during the present year.

'Turkey and the Powers.
Affairs in the Far East having been brought
into something like order the powers are at leisure
to devote a little time to those of the Near East.
If some of the rumours current in Vienna have
any basis of truth the powers are likely to have
a tolerably large amount of business to transact.
It is alleged that some of those turbulent Balkan
States, taking advantage of what they conceive
to be the present unpopularity of Turkey, are
bent upon settling old scores. In consequence
.As.tearibala'.-ptl ut-0 to the other signatories of
the Berlin Ir.-.ay, ,lie--artvisatmlrty of guara-
ing against a possible misunderstanding of
the naval demonstration. Should hostilities
in the Balkans synchronise with the seizure of
the custom-house at Mytilenes, Lemnos and Tene-
dos, a situation would be created which might
bring about a great European war. The allied fleets
reached Mytilene on Sunday ; and on the same
day the Turkish mi. ist r for foreign affairs by
his visit to the British and Austrian Embassies
signified a disposition on the part of the Sublime
Porte to negotiate. A modification of the scheme
of reform was proposed in accordance with which
the Financial Delegates of the Powers might be
styled Ottoman Financial Councillors. Probably
the astute Tewfik Pasha himself has estimated the
chances for and against the acceptance of his pro-
posal. Germany, so at least it is announced from
Berlin, indignantly denies being in any way res-
ponsible for the Sick Man's refusal to take his
-medicine. On the contrary, the very insistence
of this most conscientious of nurses that he should
swallow the dose prescribed by his kind physicians
hascaused him to conceive for her strong a dislike ;
and, dreading the effect that her presence in the
sick rooV must have upon the patient she has
voluntarily absented herself therefrom.
It may well be that the present expedition into
Turkish waters is intended to convey a moral
lesson both to Turkey and Germany. A state of
continual unrest in .laicedinia does not contri-
bute to the strength of Austria whose weakness is
Germany's advantage. Should Austria as is
most probable receive from the Powers a mandate
to organize the Balkan States a very effectual
barrier to German ambitions in Turkey would be
The whole matter is one of deap interest ; and
the outcome of the present expedition will be
awaited with some degree of concern if not in-
K d illth anxiety.
Captain Richard Falconer on Bermuda.
Mr. J. C. L. Clark, author of Tom Moore in
Beimu la has kindly favoured us with some ex-
triacts iiin' a rare and curious old book on Ber-
muda Written by one William Rufus Chetwood a
bookseller, and published in 17720, the book pur-
ports to be a narrative of the voyages, dangers
and hairbreadth escapes of its author one Captain
Richard Falconer, and written by himself. The
valiant capt in obtained his information respect-
ging Bermuda from one John Rouse, a native of
the Islands and remarkably well informed as to
the history, natural political, and economic, of
his native country. Until Mr. John Rouse came
to the front the Ceders of Lebanon had held a
position of eminence in the vegetable world,
which they had to abdicate in favour of those in
Bermuda, the l:migst in the Universe," with
leaves downy at the end, ever in flower, and con-
stantly laden with green as well as ripe fruit. On
reading of the forests of mulberries producing
prodigious numbers of Silk-Worms," one
cannot help thinking of what a paradise such as
Bermuda would be to those interested in sericul-
ture. From the silkworms in their thousands
spinning silk of the colour of the berries it is but
a step t) the shore of this Bermuda ; and there
were to be found turtles laying eggs as big as
tennis balls, and requiring full six years for

r Irving or Shaw ?
Mr. Bernard Shaw complains that he has looked
in vain for a word of sane and sober truth in
the "tornado of obituary mendacity raised by
the death of Sir Henry Irving. It is safe to pre-
dict that no such tornado will mark the obsequies
of Mr. Bernard Shaw. Such remarks over the
grave of the honoured dead contribute little to the
increase of their author's fame; and save for a
snarling cynicism Mr. Bernard Shaw has yet need
of much to entitle him to a lasting plac2 in the
memory of his countrymen.

A cool proposal is made by the Paris Revue Bleue
which says that the removal to the Pacific of
the British Atlantic Squadron shows an inclination
on the part of the British government to leave Ja-
maica and the Bahamas to the protection of the
Monroe Doctrine. Mr. Von Schierbrand, a Ger-
man publicist, thinks "it would be a great satis-
taction to the Americans if England could decide
of surrender to Uncle Sam her possessions in the
West Indies, including her naval stations : this
would be in truth a convincing proof of her sincere
feelings of friendship.
"The large floating dock at Bermuda is no
longer the largest of itst kind in existence. It has
been surpassed by a German dock which has just
been finished at Tsingtau, Kiao-Chau. The length
of the new dock is 410 feet, its width over all is
128 feet and the inside measurement is 98 feet,
while the height is 62 feet," so says the New
York Post. As a matter of fact the Bermuda float-
ing dock is 545 feet long, height 53 feet 3ins.,
width over all 130 feet and inside measurement
100 feet. We are not told the lifting capacity of
the dock made in Germany," but the Bermuda

neen registered in pursuance of the Act, a Court
of Summary Jurisdiction on complaint in writing
by any person, may make an order directing the
club to be struck off the register on all or any of
the following grounds, namely-That the club has
ceased to exist, or that the number of members is
Less than 25 ; that it is not conducted in good
faith as a club, or that it is kept or habitually
used for any unlawful purpose ; that there is fre-
quent drunkenness on the club premises ; that il-
legal sales of intoxicating liquor have taken place
on the club premises ; that persons who are not
members are habitually admitted to the club mere-
ly for the purpose of obtaining intoxicating liquor;
that the club occupies premises in respect of which,
within twelve months next preceding the forma-
tion of the club, a licence has been forfeited or the
renewal of a licence has been refused, or in respect
of which an order has been made that they shall
not be used for the purposes of a club ; that per-
sons are habitually admitted as members without
an interval of at least 48 hours between the nomi-
nation and admission of members ; that the sup-
ply of intoxicating liquor to the club is not under
the control of the members or the committee ap-
pointed by the members.
The report of the committee of the House of As-
sembly appointed on September 11'h to consider
the question relative to he conditions under which
dangerous commodities are imported and stored
have recommended that three warehouses suitable
for the storage of petroleum and its products be
provided at the public expense, one in Pembroke
Parish at a convenient distance from Hamilton,
another at a convenient distance from St. Georges
and the third at'some convenient locality in San-
dy's parish, and that such warehouses be placed
under Executive control, and be managed by the
Revenue Department. In order to defray the
expenses connected with the keeping of the public
warehouse a change is recommended to be trade on
every barrel or package deposited there at the rate
of ten pence and two pence respectively to cover
storage for a period of one mouth. The committee
were of opinion that a limit should be placed by
law on the quantities of petroleum and its pro-
ducts to he kept by dealers or private persons,
without a license, and that in the case of ordinary
petroleum used for illuminating purposes, the
quantity should be limited to 130 gallons, and in
the case of naphtha, gasoline, bensolene, benzene,
or petrol; the quantity should be limited to ten
gallons, contained in proper metal cases. It is
recommended that the times during which petro-
leum should be allowed to remain on any wharf
or elsewhere should be forty-eight hours, and in
the case of any of its products twenty-four hours.

Bermuda Hunt Club.
At a meeting of the Bermuda Hunt Club, held
in theCity Hall on Friday evening last, permission
was granted for the use of the Shelly Bay Race
Course for the holding of Trotting Races on Box-
ing Day. It is possible that the programme may
include one or more running events. Mr. A. W.
Bluck, the Honorary Secretary-Treasurer, an-
nounced that on account of the pressure of business
lie would be unable to accept nomination at the
next Annual Meeting. In the event, however, of
there being any difficulty experienced in filling
the office of Secretary-Treasurer Mi. Bluck would
be prepared to carry out the arrangements for the
next Spring Meeting.
"The Graphic" Christmas Number.
Two fine coloured plates are given away with
this year's Christmas number of The Graphic. Of
these, one is a charming study of a young girl by
Mr. St. George Hare, R. I., entitled ''Memories,"
and the other, by Mr. Arthur Wardle, entitled
'Got Him," shows a small boy capturing the
Christmas turkey. The Christmas number which
was published yesterday is, as usual, illustrated
throughout in colours, and is bound in an artistic
cover, on which is a beautiful reproduction of one
of Sir Peter Lely's exquisite portraits. It con-
tains a capital collection of short stories by Frank-
fort Moore, S. Baring-Gould, Eden Philpotts,
Max Pemberton, Halliwell Sutcliffe, F. M. White,
and other famous writers, with drawings and il-
lustrations, grave and gay, by H. M. Brock, C.
Napier Hemy, Claude Shepperson, Reginald
Cleaver, John Hassall, Johln H. F. Bacon, Frank
Dadd, John da Costa, C. E. Brock, Lawson Wood
and others. An advance copy has been forwarded

be a 20 increase on his present salary, and which
should include travelling expenses. If the In-
spector of Schools did a good amount of walking
it would do him good (Laughter). He remem-
bered that on one occasion I e received the advice
of one of the best doctors of Bermuda who re-
commended him (Mr. Cooper) to walk five miles
A Voice-Did you do it?
Mr. Cooper replied he did not do it. He could
not spare the time (Laughter). He was conu
vinced, however, that walking was a very good
exercise. Personally, he thought that walking
would do the Inspector of Schools good. It cer-
tainly will (o him no harm (Laughter). He
was willing to vote for this official having an
extra '20 a year, which would help him to keep
a nice little horse and buggy.
The Hon. Attorney General said that in several
instances the out of pocket expenses of public
officers were paid out of the Public Treasury.
With regard to what the hon. member for War-
wick (Mr. N. A. Cooper) had said, even if a
parish constable was sent out of his parish on
duty his expenses were paid. The peculiarity of
the duties of the Inspector of Schools was that the
more work he bad to do the less he got because as
his expenses increased so the amount of salary
available for himself diminished and the fairest
way to deal with the matter would be to give
him a certain amount which would represent his
remuneration for his own services and -to make
him some allowance for his travelling expenses.
Mr. Vesey contended that the House had no
right to increase the salary of the Inspector of
Schools at the present time. If the Bill was car-
ried giving effect to the report of the Education
Commission which would impose additional dut-
ies on the Inspector of Schools, he might come to
the House and apply for another increase. He
thought it would be far better to wait.
The Hon. C. Peniston said that the hon. me.n-
ber Mr. Vesey had stated that the Inspector might
come to the House later on and ask for another
increase. He (Mr. Peniston) thought the reverse
would be the case. If the House increased his
salary now, lie would hardly have the conscience
to come and ask for a further increase next year.
Mr. Vesey.-No conscience, eh That won't
Mr!n. u. Middleton said that the present In-
spector of Schools was a most energetic officer and
he should support the larger amount.
Mr. N. A. Cooper's motion was negatived by 19
votes to 13, the ayes being Messrs West, N A
Cooper, Vesey, Spurling, Pearman, Wilkinson,
Mercer, Boyle, W S Frith, H S Cooper, C A V
Frith, Dr T H Outerbridge, Dr S A Smith.
The Attorney General's motion was affirmed by
20 votes to 12.
It was decided that the salary of any Inspector
of Schools hereinafter appointed should be com-
menced at 250 instead of 200.
The Bill was reported to the House, adopted
and ordered to be engrossed.

SIR;-A member of the House of Assembly is
reported to have said in the discussion upon the
Petition for Local Option that he presumed from
the names that he had heard read that more than
two-thirds were the signatures of persons under
the age at which an individual is capable of un-
derstanding the nature of such a petition.
In correction I'wish to say, first, that when the
petition was sent out for signatures particular in-
structions were given to those in charge of them
to see that only those who were of age signed
them, these instructions I have good reason for
believing were practically carried out Secondly,
I do not believe there is one whose signature is
found attached to the petition who is incapable of
understanding the nature of such a petition.

Follows Popular Custim-
A significant sign of the times is the cordial manner in which responsible
people of all creeds and conditions support the views which are ably set
forth below by the Rev. Geo. B. Taylor, a Colonial Clergyman. In words
of unstinted praise this gentleman says emphatically that all the social,
mental and ecclesiastical work of his position is only made possible by periodical
doses of Phosferine, which repairs the Nervous Waste his system suffers
underWest Indian conditions ofj ife. Men of Intellect, and Men of Muscle
alike, vouch for the amazing restorative power of Phosferine in all cases
of Nerve Disorder or Irregularities, and with Rulers and People of many
lands, it is an established and Popular Custom to rebuild and re-inforce
the Nervous System with a course of Phosferine.
Which He Strongly Supports.
Rev. Geo. B. Taylor, St. Luke's Parsonage, Barbados, writes:-" I have,
for a considerable time past, used your Phosferine with very great benefit
to mind and body, and especially is this the case on Sundays, when I
always have three Services and Sunday School, and frequently Open-air
Services as well,with Baptism twice a month, besides a good deal of work
during the week, such as instructing in Schools, Conducting Mission
Services in School Houses, Regular Weekly Services and Daily Services,
besides a good deal of other duties which fall to the Pastor of a large
Congregation. I always take two or more doses of Phosferine on Sunday
and on other days when I have any mental work to do, and particularly
when I have any heavy brain work to dischare, I always fortify myself
with your world renowned Tonic, and I assure you I have often been
considerably assisted in mySermons-both the preparation and delivery-
and in the nervous strain which a long day's work entails. I may add that I
always recommend it to my friends. Acting on my advice a lady tried it a
short time ago who suffered from ,leepiessness and nervous debility,and she
Informs me that she hasderived considerable benefit from it."-Oct. 8,1904
Phosferine is used by i" Royal Families of Europe. which, in
plain language means th.at every user of Phosferine knows and
feels that theTonic is commended by the greatest living physicians

that acted so good as ', Save-the-Horse'' and he had fired, blistered and all kinds of things to save a

as directed, he made a great success and perfect cure. He came in to-day to buy another bottle to try

CURED BY NEW
If there has ever been a human ail-
ment that deserves the united s4udy of
specialists that ailment is Piles. Every
method hitherto employed, not surgi-
cal, has been inadequate to bring relief;
and except in the very severest cases,
recourse to surgery is inadvisable. In
the Prevention Pile Pencil will be
found a method and remedy for piles
that will at once appeal to every suff-
erer as being practical. The Preven-
tion Pile Pencil is a medicated appli-
cator, not an ointment or suppository,
that reaches thoroughly and complete-
ly the entire inflamed surface thus it
cures when everything fails; its strong
healing power immediately removes all
irritation and inflammation. Each Pre-
vention Pile Pencil contains enough
medicament for 25 applications. For
sale by druggists at 50 cents.

Sir,-I am directed by the Governor to forward herewith, a copy of

His Excellency would be obliged if the Corporation would, if possi-
ble, in the interests of greater clearness furnish! replies to the following
questions, with reference to thew information desired, as to the width of
the roadway known as Front Street:
(1) What is the width of the public highway of Front Street, i.e.
that part of it which has already been, dedicated to the public as a
highway, irrespective of the Ordinance now under consideration?
(2) What is the width of the roadway in question, which, under the
terms of the Ordinmnce, is to be kept always clear as a thoroughfare?
(3) 1s the roadway, proposed to be kept as a th oroughfare under
the Ordinance, of greater width than the present highway, and if so, is
it the intention of the Corporation to dedicate such wider roadway as a public

FROM THE CORPORATION OF HAMILTON
TO THE COLONIAL SECRETARY.
Hamilton, 18th November, 1905.
Sir,-I am directed by, the Corporation of Hamilton to acknowledge
the receipt of your letter No. 549, dated 17th instant, forwarding a copy
of a Message from the Legislative Council to His Excellency the Governor,
dated 14th instant.
During the last twenty five or thirty years the wharf front in Ham-
ilton, South of the limits of Front Street, has been cmlside i'-,ly extended,
and it has been possible from time to time to make additions to the
width oi Front Street which have n ateriallyv increased the amount of
roadway ordinarily available for public trntlic, but it has been frequently
necessary for the ace,,',,al..ilill of the trade of the port, to use temp-
orarily the Southern portion of the r,,adway opposite .the Slleds now
numbered 2, 3 and 4 for the deposit of imported goods and in some
cases for the deposit of empty casks and agrivult'ural produce intended
for (.xplrt, afnd' the 1t(1iTp.1'riry use of such portions has not infrequently
diminished the width of the thoroughfare to twenty feet or less opposite
Sheds 3 and 4.
It is not practicable to give a specific answer to the first. question
in your letter, but it may be stated generally that the part of Front
ti,-.,t between thI' sheds and the sidewalks already dedicated to the
public as a highway, is of a width considerably less than that which it
is now proposed to dedicate to the public.
I ant directed to forward herewith the original map of Hamiilton,
from which it will be seen that Front Street was, in its narrowest part,
less than twenty feet, and nowhere letw'ieen Parlialment Street and Queen
Street more than twelity five feet inclusiv'e of th'at rtionf1 now Occptllied
by the sidewalk.
I am directed to forward a plan of the portion of Frint Street
opposite the Sheds, showing in yellow the spaces referred to in the
Ordinance now before the Legislature, the Northern limits of which it is
i,,, ...il. d to define by embedding in the romad way small co"-l:t' blocks,
the surface of which will be level with the roadway, and which are
shown on the plan by small red squares.
The green line in this plan indicates the approximate Southern limit
of Front Street about the year 1883.
The widtl of the roadway on Front Street which, under the terms
of the Ordinance, is to be kept always clear as a thoroughfare is thirty
eight fet. from the Eastern end of Shed No. 4 to about the middle of
Shed No. 2, gradually diminishing from there to the Western end of
that Shed %6 a little over thirty one feet, exclusive of the concrete
gutter, from which point to Heyl's corner it is rather over thirty seven
From the eastern end of Shed No. 4 to the Eastern limits of Ham-
ilton the whole of the roadway of Frmit Street between the Southern
limits of the sidewalks and the gutters, on the South side of the Street
is to be kept clear as a thoroughfare.
It is apparent from the foregoing facts that the roadway proposed to
be kept clear as a thoroughfare under the Ordinance is o6f greater width
than the present highway, and it is the intention of the Corporation to
dedicate such wider roadway as a public highway.
It is also the iite-.ntii.n of the Corporation to petnrmit traffic over
those portions of Frout Street which are coloured yellow on the said

"Captain Richard Falconer on Bermuda.
Editor of the Bermuda Royal Gazette:
A few days ago I came across, and bought for
my collection of Bermudiana, a curious old
volume, The voyages, dangerous adventures
and imminent escapes of Captain Richard Fal-
coner, written by himself, now alive," published
in London in 1720. The book, far from being a
genuine sailor's narrative, is pure fiction, much
on the plan of Defoe's Robinson Crusce," which
appeared the preceding year. It is known to
have been written by William Rufus Chetwood,
the bookseller who published it. The imaginary
hero of the book gives an account of Bermuda
which he professes to have derived from one John
Rouse (also imaginary, no doubt), remarkable for
its lack of knowledge. "Captain Richard Fal-
coner was, indeed, quite an engaging liar. Some
of your readers may be interested in the part
relating to Bermuda (especially in the engage-
ment with a pirate-ship in Harrington Sound !)
as a specimen of the stuff, in these and similar
"voyages," which doubtless many persons swal-
lowed with ease. Although five editions of the
book appeared between 1720 and 1738, it is not
very common. Ninety years ago Sir Walter
Scott wrote that he had sought ten years before
finding a copy.
The narrative of "John Rouse is as follows :
Bermudas, (the Place of my Birth) or the
Summer Islands, is supposed by some, to take its
name of Bermudas from certain Black Hogs that
came out of a Spanish Ship that was cast away on
those shores. And by others from one John Ber-
mudas, a Spaniard, the first Discoverer of the Is-
lands. The Name Summer Islands, is deriv'd
from George Summers, an English Man, who
suffered Shipwreck there. They are situated in
thirty two Degrees, and twenty five Minutes of
Northern Latitude; Sixteen Hundred Leagues
from England ; Twelve Hundred from Maderia ;
Four Hundred from Hispaniola; and about Three
Hundred from Boston in New England. The
Spaniards had it first, and after them the French ;
but the Supplies that were sent 'em from France
miscarrying by Shipwreck, they were oblig'd to
abandon the Islands. After this, one Wingfield, a
Merchant in London, sent in two Ships, Captain
Gosnel and Smith, with People to settle there ;
but there was not much do-ie till 1612, when a
Company was Establish'd at London by Letters
Patents, given by King James the first, who im-
mediately sent Captain Moor with sixty five men,
where he was two years fortifying the Islands
against the Attempts of any Invasion from either
French, Spaniards or Indians. In the mean Time
a sort of Rats so increased that they devour'd
every Thing that was Green in the whole Island,
and had like to have starv'd the Inhabitants, if
Providence had not timely sent a Disease among
'em that consum'd 'm all. In about three years
after the first Plantation by Captain Moor, there
was sent 'em another Supply of Men and Provision,
by Captain Bartlet, who returned with a Hundred
Weight of Ambergreece. The next year, there
arrived five hundred Men and Women, with
Tradesmen of all Sorts. In 1616 one Tuckard
succeeded in the Government, and was very ser-
viceable to the Plantation, in bringing and plant-
ing several Trees, and Tobacco. He also divided
the Country into Acres, and parcell'd it out to
the Tenants. Itencreas'd daily in Culture and In-
habitants. The Form of the Islands as they lie,
resembles something of a Lobster with its Claws
off. The chief of the Islands is called George Is-
land, and is divided into Eight Parts, besides the
General Land. 1. Hamilton Tribe; 2. Smith's
Tribe; 3. Devonshire Tribe; 4 Pembroke Tribe;
5. Paget Tribe; 6. Warwick Tribe; 7. South-
ampton Tribe; 8. Sandy's Tribe. The Islands are
all surrounded by Rocks, that at High-Water are
dangerous to Strangers. The chief Harbours are
Southampton, Harrinton, and the Great Sound.
Upon St. George's Island they have built several
large and strong Forts, whose Chief are Warwick
and Dover Forts. The soil in some Places is
Sandy or Claye ; and in other Places Ash colour'd,
White and Black ; about two Foot deep under
the Ash, is found great Slates, which the Inhabi-
tants make use of several Ways ; and under that
Black is found a Stony Substance, something
like a Spunge, or Pummice-Stone. The Wells,
and Pits, Ebb and Flow with the Sea, yet pro-
duce excellent fresh Water. The sky is generally
serene ; but when 'tis o'er-cast they have dread-
ful Thunder and Lightning. The Air is much
the same as with you in England. They Sow in
March, and Reap in June; then they Sow in
August, and Gather in January: And from that
Month till May, the Whales frequently swim by
them. They often find great Quantities of Amber-
greece, and sometimes Pearl Oysters. No
venemous creatures will live in any of the
said Islands. The yellow large Spiders have
not the least Venom in 'em. There's Plenty of
all Sorts of Cattle, both Wild and Tame, especially
Hogs, who have mightily encreas'd since their
first Landing; but they are not altogether so fat as
we could wish, feeding only on Berries which fall
from the Palmeto-Trees, which are very sweet.
There's Plenty of Mulberries, both White and
Red, which produce prodigious Numbers of Silk-
Worm; who spin Silk of the Colour of the Berry.
The Trees are here of different Kinds; the Cedar is
reckon'd the Largest in the Universe. The Leaves
are downy, and prickly at the End. The Berries
that it produceth are of a pale Red which inclose
four White Kernels; the Outermost Skin is sweet;
the Innermost that contains the Kernel, is sharp;
and the Pulp is tartish. The Tree is always flour-
ishing, being at the same Time full of Blossoms,
green, and ripe Fruit. The berries when ripe be-
gin to gape, and fall off in Rainy Weather; leaving
a round Stalk on the Boughs, which loses not its
Rind till that Time two Years after. The Berry
requires one Year before it comes to its full Ripe-
ness, which happens about December. The Boughs
shoot upwards, and in a little Time are so heavy,
that they weigh down the Body of the Tree.
There are many Plants, as the Prickle Pear, Poy-
son Weed, Red Weed, Purging Bean, Red Pepper,
and the Costive Tree, and the Sea Feather, which
grows on the Brink of the Sea. There is another
Plant called Nuchtly, which grows in the Niches
of the Rocks, washed by the Waves of the Sea, and
produces a Fruit like a Pear, which they call the
Speckled Pear, from its spots. For Fowls, we have
all sorts that England produces, besides a great
number of Cranes, larger than any I have seen
elsewhere; with a sort of Fowl that lives in Holes
in the Rocks, like Rabbets. As for Tortoises,
they are as good there as anywhere. They catch
them in this Manner; they watch for'em at Night,
when they come on Shore to dig Holes to bury
their Eggs in; while they are doing of it, they
turn 'em on their Backs, and not being able to get
upon their Legs again, they are easily taken
Some will have a Hundred Eggs in 'em about as
big as a common Tennis-Ball, and very round;
but a thin Skin, and the Yolk lies on the Side of
the Skin, or Shell, and may be seen on the Out-
side: These hidden in the Sand, are nourish'd by
the Sun, and never minded by the Tortoise that
lays 'em; and as soon as they have broke the Shell,
they all run into the Sea. Some say they are full
six Years a Hatching. They are excellent Meat,
(for I can't call 'em Fish) and very nourishing,
and we use the Oyl instead of Butter. which
will keep longer, and is reckon'd much
wholesomer for many Uses. Besides, it is
good to bathe, the Place that is stung by a little
Insect, called Musketto. The Largest of these
Islands, is Long Island; the next St. George's
Island; after that Somerset, and St. David's;
next, Hibernia, or Ireland Island; then Longberd,
Cooper's, and Smith's Island; Nonesuch Gates;
and the Brothers Island; with many others as
well inhabited, and provided with every Thing
for the Life of Man ; which is elegantly described
by your English Poet, Mr. Edmund Waller.
" Bermudas, walled with Rocks, who does not know
That happy Island where huge Lemons grow,
And orange Trees which golden Fruit do bear !
Th' Hesperian Garden boasts of none so fair.
Where Shining Bearl, Coral, and many a Pound,
On the rich Shore of Ambergreese is found.
The lofty Cedar, which to Heav'n aspires,
The Prince of Trees is Fewel for their Fires:
The Smoak, by which their loaded Spits do turn,
For Incence might on Sacred Altars burn :
Their private Roofs, on Od'rous Timber born
Such as might Palaces for Kings adorn.
The sweet Palmettos, a new Bacchus yield,
With Leaves as ample as the broadest Shield:
Under the shadow of whose friendly Boughs,
They sit carousing where their Liquor grows.
Figs there unplanted through the Fields do grow.
Such as fierce Cato did the Romans show :
With the rare Fruit inviting 'em to spoil
Carthage, the Mistress of so rare a Soil.
The naked Rocks are not unfruitful there,
But at some constant seasons e'vry Year,
Their Barren Tops with luscious Food abound,
And with the Eggs of various Fowls are crown'd.
Tobacco is the Worst of Things, which they
To English Landlords as their tribute pay :
Such is the Mould, that the Blest tenant feeds
On precious Fruits, and pays his Rent in Weeds :
With candy'd Plantanes, and the Juicy Pine,
On choicest Melons, and sweet Grapes they dine,
And with Potatoes, fat their wanton Swine.
Nature these Cates with such a lavish Hand
Pours out among 'em, that our coarser Land
Tastes of their Bounty, and does Cloth return
Which not for Warmth but ornament is worn.
For the kind Spring, which but salutes us here,
Inhabits there, and courts them all the Year ;
Ripe Fruits and Blossoms on the same trees live,
At once they promise, what at once they give.
So sweet the Air, so moderate the Cl,',,
None sickly lives, or dies before his Time.
Heav'n sure has kept this Spot of Earth uncurst,
To show how all Things were created first.
The tardy Plants in our cold Orchard placed,
Reserve their Fruit for the next Age's Taste :
There a small Grain in some few Months will be
A firm, a lofty and a spacious Tree :
The Palma Christi, aind the fair Papah,
Now but a Seed, (preventing Nature's Law)
In Half the Circle of the hasty Year
Project a Shade, and lovely Fruits do wear.
And as the Trees in our dull Region set,
But faintly grow and no Perfection get;
So in this Northern Tract, our hoarser throats
Utter unripe, and ill-constrained Notes :
While the Supporter of the Poet's Stile,
Phoebus on them eternally does smile.
Oh how I long my careless Limbs to lay
Under the Plantane's shade
There is now in the Islands of Bermudas, near
Forty Thousand Inhabitants, most English. The
Laws are the same as in England. The Religion
and Divine Worship the same. There are Three
and Twenty Parish Churches, besides Chappels.
In the year 1616, five Seamen set sail from thence
in an open Vessel of about Three Tun, and after
having suffered several Storms and Tempests, were
safely landed at Kingsale in Ireland. The French
and Spaniards have made several Attempts upon
those Island; but were always drove away with
About a Month before I embark'd for this
unfortunate Voyage, we took a French Pyrate,
who was so insolent as to come into Harrinton's
Sound, even at Noon-Day, and cut the Cables of
a Merchant-Man, richly laden bound for England ;
but by good Fortune run upon the Flats in the
Mouth of the Sound, in going out again : So we
had Time to Man some Boats with some of the
soldiers of the Garrison, and send to their Relief,
where there happened a desperate Fight for some
Time; but more Forces going to the Assistance
of the others, they took 'em after an obstinate
Resistance, killing twenty seven of their Men, and
losing eleven of our own. The Captain made his
Escape in his Boat, in the latter End of the
Engagement, when he perceiv'd his Danger; but
was obliged to go on Shore on Ireland Island
for some provision, where he, and four Men
that were with him, were secur'd, and sent to
Tucker's Town ; where they were to be tri'd the
Day I came away."

The Humours of Examinations.
From some answers written by candid es for
commissions in the Army and printed i he Scots-
man, it would seem that their knowledge of geo-
graphy is not what it should be, and that Lord
Roberts's frequently expressed wish that officers
should be proficient in the common method of
spelling their native language has not yet been
accomplished. The candidates had been asked to
show how the position of Edinburgh fitted it to
be the capital of Scotland, hut most of them seem-
ed to have only a very faint idea as to where
Edinburgh is. It was said to be "on the Firth
of Clyde," "on the Firth of Tay," "on the Sol-
way ;" others mistrustful of the sea, placed it in
"Lynlythgowshire," "in Perthshire at the foot of
the Grampians," "in Fife," while one gentleman
probably a strong Unionist, relegated it to Ire-
land. Another feeling thit information is noth-
ing without particulars, declared that it stood on
the River Sterling, was defended by Stirling Cas-
tle, and its port was Perth Of the future of the
city the candidates, as a rule, were most despon-
dent. Others did not wish to be so disparaging,
as, for instance, Its prosperity was going, but is
supported by the Rubber Trade." Again : "The
climate is good, but subject to a prevailent wind,
which comes from the south, or rather, as the
earth is not stationery, from the S. W. to fill the
vacuum caused by the Trade Winds. It is well
situated : the Castle is on Arthur Seat, and the
whole of the city is perched on a rugged cliff."
Another candidate asserts that Edenborough is not
so good a capital as Glascow, but is enabled,
owing to its plimoxity of its harbour Lieth, to
have eisy axes to a free esturary, the Firth of
Fourth." The candidates whose answers are re-
corded are still, it need hardly be said, without
