by Marquez Orchestra, which was
followed by an address from the Pre President

fuuds, iso much so, that there was a
lime when some members thought of
giving up. He, however, owed the
success which had since art ended them

to his Vice President Mr Jones, Mr J
Renwick the Secretary, and last but
by no means least to Mr Paul Leotaud
their assistant Secretary, who was
content to perform the duties of the
office without accepting the salary
attached to it. The next item on the
programme was a song by Miss Wil Williams

by Mr A Marquez. Mr Cruickshank

also gave a song, and the first part of
the programme was brought to a
close by a comic song “ More work

Marquez who ably filled the place of
Mr Giuseppi. The second part of

CENTENO vs. CENTENO.
(Before Mr. Justice G. Barnes.
(Frcmt “ The Times” 31111100.)
This was a petition by Marie Elizabeth
AndreeCenteno, nte Agostini, for a judicial
separation from Leon Centeno, on the ground
of his adultery with Elizabeth Karch,
Mr. Inderwick Q.C., and Mr. Barnard were
for .he petitioner ; Mr. Deane Q.C., and Mr,
Priestley for the respondent.
Mr. Inderwick said that the parties were
married on December 4th 1884, at the German
Registry, Frankfurt-on-Maine, and also at the
British Consulate ; and on December 6th there
was a religious ceremony at the R.C. Church,
Weisbaden. There were four children, issue
of the marriage. The respondent was a man
of fortune, owning large estates in Trinidad,
producing cocoa, sugar and other West Indian
produce. The petition contained allegations
of cruelty and of adultery, both in England
a,.d in Germany ; but evidence would be given
only in support of the last charge, as the Res Respondent,
pondent, Respondent, not being a domiciled Englishman,
the Petitioner was unable to obtain a divorce.
It would be proved that in 1897, the respon respondent
dent respondent had, while staying at the Hotel Jacobi,
I rankfurt, > committed adultery with a bar
maid named Elizabeth Karch. She subse subsequently
quently subsequently took legal proceedings against Mr.
Centeno in the German Courts and be agreed
to compromise her claim by a payment of
3,000 marks in respect of her personal claim,
and to settle 10,090 marks on her child born
on September 21, 1898. This compromise
was ratified by the German Courts, and such
ratification was equivalent to an order of
Court. The petitioner had not received in information
formation information as to this matter until after she had
filed her petition, and the charge was added
in the particulars. On November 9th, the
respondent’s solicitor* wrote to the petitioner’s
solicitor* ;
“ Our Client is not prepared to contest the
charge of adultery with the woman Eliza Eliza“
“ Eliza“ beth Karch, and we on his behalf, hereby
*' admit the same.”
In these circumstances the Court would b«
asked, on proof of the German documents
being given, to find the charge of adultery
established without oral evidence. With re regard
gard regard to the charges ot cruelty, the respondent
in his answer had suggested that be had re received
ceived received some provocation from his wife’s
conduct ; but she desired to deny on oath
that there was the slightest foundation for the
suggestion.
Mr*. Centeno, the petitioner, examined,
said :—“That in the autumn of 1897, the
respondent visited F rankfurt and stayed at the
Hotel Jacobi. Since she had received in
formation a* to hi* conduct in Germany, she
had not co-habited with him. It was quite
untrue that she had by her conduct given her
husband any reason to be either suspicious or
jealous of her.
Dr. Eduard Cruesetnann, a London Soli Solicitor
citor Solicitor and * Doctor of Laws of the University
of Gottingen, gave expert evidence as to the
certificate of the German registrar being proof
in the German Courts of a valid marriage in
Germany. According to German taw any
woman who gave Birth to an illegitimate
child bad a cause of action against the father
of her child, and the Court* had the power to
order the man to pay a sum of money to the
woman and to make provision by settlement
for the child. It was usual to settle such
case*, and the agreement, when ratified by the
Court, waa equivalent to an order. The cei
tificate* of the German Courts (produced!
recited all the facts opened by Counsel.
Mr Deane :—The adultery is admitted and
the documents are not disputed.
Mr. Justice Goreii Barnes accordingly
granted a judicial separation, with cost* ;
anu gave lbs petitioner the vusiovy of her

In either case when a message Is sent

Mr Brown. "There is not sufficient

“ But tbs Diroot Ocmpany work at

Mr Brown’s rsply was a ravelation to
which 1 would call tbe attention of all
fair-minded pecplo in considering this
question,
’•They have been oalled, he said, the
pioneer* of low rates to Jamaica, That
!â–  a superficial view. Tho truth of the
matter fs that the pioneers of low rates
to J&m&ioa are the British Government
themselves*, For nearly thirty years we
have maintained our system without
over having receivod a copper from the
Imperial Government, Wo reoelve
subsidies from the Colonies wh'oh
amount to £IB,IOO per annum or £2.10 6

sums together and you will find
that they come to £IB,IOO per an annum
num annum or £3.10 0 a mile. FuS It to your yourself,
self, yourself, As long as those Companies ar*
««» au rubsidiesj more then three times as I
largo per mile at our own, of whioh tho
Co'onies do not bear an eighth part, bow
can those Companies be oalled the pioo
eezs of low rates P Is it not clear to you
‘hst the Home Government is really the
pioneer of low rates ?"
â– ' To put the point in a striking man manner,
ner, manner, ” said Mr. Quick. ” we are willing to
oome down to a rat* of a penny a word
to-morrow if wo got a enough Im Imperial
perial Imperial Subsidy. ’
The astounding unfairness of this form
cf competition made It seem Incredible,
I asked for farther particulars and Mr.
Brcwn gave m* a oopy of some oerret oerretpon-’ence
pon-’ence oerretpon-’ence that has passed between the
Com! txuy and the Colonial Sfeoretsry, Mr
Josep ' Chamberlain There the figures
aro ell act out. The correspondence
â– how*, whatever the impression may be,
tbo West India sod Panama Company
have certainly not been linking their
own pockets at the expense of tue West
India* In the wbelo 80 years since the
original cables were laid, tho Ordinary
tibvreholders, who represent over three
quarters cf a million of money, have
rirswn leas than £lO of dividend on essh
sum of £IOO, or less than six shillings
so#- eight peoo* per ceut per annum.
8u ely evaryou# will agree that share shareboi

adequate return, and 5 per oent par

tbe bottom of the s«*. H the share shareholders
holders shareholders cf the West India and Panama
Oompony had received this rat* ol
Interest they would to-day have been in
pocket over a million and a quarter
sterling.
It Is to be assumed then that no new
Ccuipauy oould afford to ocme into tb*
fia’ri unless It ware supported by Govern Government
ment Government grants. Th* natural course
one would have thought would
bo that if a Government Grant
were once agreed to in principle, th*
Company already on the ground should
be allowed a chance cf showing what
the/ cijil do with It before a new
or mar was given tbo opportunity of
fi: ally completing the id i cf a great
oo p;>ration by oompo'iig with tbe
»*'v*otage of a Government subsidy.
What then are the shortcoming* of tbe
W -at India and Fam-ma Telegraph
Ocmpany P
I asked Mr Bn wu aboot the two
principal points that seem to he alleged
agsu at them.
(•) High rate*.
(2) Seme Supply.
‘ 1 hero told you bow rates are low.
er»d,“ said Mr Bro.vr, "through tiro
pioneering AuUSdy of the British Gov*
•rriosot. At the present rates our
tradio produced last ya..r £42,000 of
which £4,000 arcs* from exceptional

HOUSE.

oaoses, a (air figure for the future being
£38,000. There were subsides and
interest ou investments bringing another
£23,000. To ray half per oent dividend
only this m* ana a deficit of £15.000, cr
paying no dividend et all on tba ordinary
shares a detioit of nearly' £II,OOO. The
plain English of all this Is that without
adequate subsides the traffic to tba Wost
Indies will not pay expenses, and we
have novor boeu given a obanoe with a
subsidy on a proper scale such as has
boeu granted eltowhere in the West
Indies and in other parts of thn Empire
by the Imperial Government. How oan
we or anyone else lower rates when we
have already made them so low that
without an Imperial audiidy the main,
tenanoe of communication throughout
the whole of the West Indies will be
endangered ?”
"So much for high rates Now take
our news supply to the Colonies, Wo
send dall? an ample bulletin of general
news; wo are in tonoh with tba West
India Committee for special West India
nows, and wa telegraph market prices
and similar information daily. We send
free what the Merchants and newspapers
of other places pay for.”
“You must remember that we have to
pay out in actual money just as you
would for every word of tfao news that,
passes over the Atiantio cables, and we
also p*y over the IntermediAto space
separating the terminus of tho Atlantic
cables and the beginning of our owr
system. We pay row in foot for whs!
ether Companies got Paid for.”
*’ The peed -on of affaire to-day s»ld M
Quick is t wo have a double lino < f
cabin com ting up the islands Tbu
traffio tha’-, that lice has yielded has ret
paid for the cost of putting it these.
Dominica for instance ban a station with
a Clerk in charge, In a tropical count:y
you must have a second Clerk. Thou
there is a Messenger, What business do
yon think Dominion does with the Com*
pany that gives it the privilege of teles
graphic oenimunloation ? Rroueh to
pay the bare working expenses V No !it
is rsally ridiculous, but during the whole
of I net year, not doping one day cr one
week, Dominica forward* ito the whole
of North America and Europe only 553
words iuolu* ’eg Government messages 1
For the small subsidy received we keep
the station open and supply a daily bud*
get of news and market pri'-es.’’
" You will perceive' 1 continued Mr
Brown “ that the Islands are safeguarded
by duplication as far as possible in case
of a break down. It is suggested to put
in a single line In competition with ours.
Whatever facilities can bo rffered by any
usw Company we are willing to offer for
an adequate subsidy, but ft would be a
ruinous p llcy to have the two companies
side by side for such an amonnt of trafiio
as tbe islands yield.”
*' Now to bo frank,” I asked next,
what is the real reason of the complete 1
against you ?”
“ Frankly,” replied Mr Brown, •’ we
do not know, Yon see what our position
is, and oan judge for yourself, that eny
demand in reason we would be glad to
oomply wlb. Tbe pith end marrow of the
whole position lies in the feat that there
is not sufficient business in the West In Indies

BSBACH OV QUARANTINE REGULATIONS.
Philip George, John Hilaire and Adol Adolphus
phus Adolphus dikes were charged by Robert Giikes
of the Quarantine Station, wrth entering the
latter place on the I.9th ultimo, without the
permission of the Quarantine Authority.
Mr A D O’Connor, Crown Solicitor, pro prosecuted.
secuted. prosecuted.
Mr H V Jardiri ?"pearcd for the defence
and pleaded guilty on behalf of his clients ;
urging for the defence that the parties were
fishermen living at Carenage and on the
evening in question bad left the latter place
in connection with their tailing. Being
utterly ignorant of committing any offence
they had ** put in ” to Pelican Island for
the purpose of obtaining, water when they
were arrested. Although ignorance was no
excuse for a breach of the Law, be would ask
Hit Worship to lake this statement into
consideration as well as the tact that de defendants
fendants defendants had been already incatccrated for
10 days.
Mi O’Connor said he appreciated Mr
Jar dint's view. As His Worship would see,
the penalty did not exceed £250, but the
Authority would be quite satisfied with a
nominal penalty. He might however men mention
tion mention that the parties could scarcely have failed
to observe the yellow tlag which was flying at
the station on the evening in question —to
say nothing oi the facts that they were liable
to an action for the larceny of water as, well as
for trespass, which however, they bad not
been charged with,
liis Worship in disposing oi the case, . aid
that the fixing of such a high penalty, by
those who had the best knowledge ot the
necessity fo* precaution, rendered the mattei
a very serious one. Was it not that tire pro prosecution
secution prosecution only desired a recognition ot the
offence, he would have felt bound to intlict a
more severe penalty. The maximum penalty
was ,£2SU, a sum which might occupy the
balance of the defendants' life time to pay,
but he would however, order them to pay i, I
eaeh. He hoped that it would serve as a
warning to others around Carenage, ami
awaken them to the necessity of adhering to
rules which was even lor their own beuclit.
BKKAMI OF THE FOOD AND DRUGS
ORDINANCE.
Morris v Guevaira.—Mr A D O'Connor
appeared for the prosecution j and after
intimating to the Bench that similar previous
prosecutions were now under consideration,
thought it fair lor the case to be allowed to
stand over until some decision had been ai
rived at the Government.
Mr Maresse-Smith who appeared foi the
defence, thought it better for the charge to he
withdrawn, if the Government bad dis
covered that they had been acting wrongly
towards the shopkeepers ; for he considered it
amounted to that.
Mr O’Gonnor suggested that the case
could proceed if Mr Smith had any objections,
Mi he bad simply mentioned the matter
through what he considered lairnc; to the
defence.
His Worship said he was not inclined to ,;n
on, as his opinion bad been somewhat
enquired into in connection with tin lecent
similar prosecutions; and he might ah
mention that tire Attorney General was not
desuoua that the heiuuig oi .ucb easel .houid

INDECENT ASSAULT,
Cornelius Ferdinand was charged with
having indecently assaulted a little giri about
seven or eight years of age by the name of
Rose Alexander, at Belie Eau Road, Belmont,
Mr J A Lassalle defended. Through the
cross examination of the girl’s mother, certain
facts were elicit A which tended to show that
the charge was unfounded. The girl had
been taken to the Hospital, and after
examination had been discharged by the
Doctors, cm the ground that there was no
trace of violence, liis Worship eventually
dismissed the case.

THE GAZETTE
PORT.OF.PPAIN
FRIDAY, 14th DBOB 1900
His Excellency the Governor’s re remarks
marks remarks at last Tuesday's meeting of
the Agricultural Society, augur well
for the future administration of the
affairs of the colony. It is a very wel welcome
come welcome bit of information that His
Excellency takes a special interest in
agriculture ; and it is more satisfac*
tory still to learn that His Excellency
shares the view of the majority of
thoughtful persons in the community,
that our agricultural interests are
1 1 ramunnt to all other interests. 1 I
fully recognise, said Sir Alfred Mo Moloney,
loney, Moloney, ' the agricultural and cominer*
< cial importance of this magnifkient
colony. 1 recognise the prime place
' which agriculture must take here,
* because we are entirely dependent
‘ upon it for our progress.’ We be believe
lieve believe this view of the relation be
tween agriculture and commerce to*
be sound. Thera is a not uninilnen
tial body of opinion in favour of
giving greater prominence to our com commercial
mercial commercial development, but we are con convinced
vinced convinced that it would be unwise to
substantially increase the public lia liabilities
bilities liabilities for any purpose not directly
or indirectly connected with agricul agriculture
ture- agriculture Improved harbours, for instance

are a great advantage to tho country
possessing them ; but heavy expendi
turc on harbour improvements should
not bo thought of until tho railway
and road systems of the country has
been fully developed.
His Excellency's intimation that he
would not frequently preside over the
deliberations of the Society, is in ac accordance
cordance accordance with tho practice of pre previous
vious previous Governors. We ait, not quite
sure, however, that tho presence of
the Governor at any meeting has any
appreciable influence upon the free freedom
dom freedom of debate. A diverse criticism
of the government of the colony
ought not to and seldom dees move any
personal hostility to the holder of the
distinguished office of Governor ; and,
though our public ineu are not all
shining examples of fearlessness and
independence, we do not believe the
spirit of our public bodies to be so
poor as His Excellency’s remarks upon
this head, wc,.„d imply. Ilia Excel
lency’s predecessors have refrained
from regularly attending the meet meetings
ings meetings of such bodies as the Agricul Agricultural
tural Agricultural Society and the Board of
Education, mainly because they
thereby retained a freer hand in
dealing with tho resolutions passed
at suoh meetings and afterwards
submitted for the consideration of the
iiovermuent, At all events the
knowledge that His ifixcellency is
specially interested in their work
should alFord an ineentivo t to reacubled
effort on the part of the Society, and
we look forward to a more whole wholehearted
hearted wholehearted seconding of the efforts of tho
Government in the direction of agri agricultural
cultural agricultural instruction to small pro proprietors*
prietors* proprietors*

The question of the payment ot
jurors serving at the Criminal Seasions
has lately been pressed upon the
public attention. Wo are not awaro
that any representations have been
made by those interested to the Gov Government,
ernment, Government, but we have some reason to
believe that the time >• not inoppor inopportune
tune inopportune for endeavouring to obtain a
removal of this anomaly la our ad administration
ministration administration of justice. In the Wind Windward
ward Windward Islands the law provides for the
reimbursement to jurors of part, at
any rate, of their expenses and no
calamitous results have followed from
this departure from Engliah practice-
We do not forget that retrenchment
is supposed to be the ordor of the day
(although tho number of new and im important
portant important offices created since the ar arbitrary
bitrary arbitrary limit to the education vote
tends to confuse our ideas on the
subject), but it seems to us a matter
of aimple justice that jurors should be
remunerated on at least the save
scale as the witnesses in a orimina)
prosecution. It is singular that the
only other person taking part in *
criminal trial whose position, in the
matter of remuneration is similar to
that of the jorors is the man in the
dock
As will be seen from our report of
the proceedings at the Criminal
Sessions yesterday, the Chief Justieo
sentenced an East Indian uamed B&l
wantu to six months, imprisonment /or

the offence of attempted suicide. We
do not wish to discuss whether it is
light for Society to punish any ot
its members for having failed to take
his own life, but we cannot bat pro protest
test protest against the manner in which the
law is administered in this respeot.
Would-be suicides in a better social
position than this wretched East In Indian
dian Indian immigrant have been allowed in
the past to go practically scot-free, and
we cannot understand on what prin principle
ciple principle Balwanta, whose unhappy lot
furnished his excuse for the crime, has
been subjected to the imprisonment
and hard labour from which his more
cemfortable fellow criminals hl|a
been exempted.
THE LONDON COGOA MARKET*
[By Ha*ou> Hamrl Smitb.J
Dduiso tbu fortnight the ooooa
market has again been very qoiel,
and though only small quantities
have been offered, they tael with no
demand to speak of, and those who
wished to realize wero locoed to
give way, so that tbe price (or the
700 bags g red middling to good red
Trinidads whioh have ohanged bands
du-ing the fortnight ranged, from
75s to 76? but. 84s waa still oblaimd
for seme “Ban Antonio.” The trade,
on tbe strength of the present stock
of Trinidads being In exoess of Its*,
years, (30187 bags on 24tb November
agniast 20996 in 1899), seem confi confident
dent confident that they will be able to hold
out until the new supplies arrive;
when, any rate as far as Trinidads
are oonoerned, they evidently ex expeot
peot expeot to obtain lower prioei. Im Importers
porters Importers and holders however Ibis
?i' 7 o do rot seem to boos this opi opinion,
nion, opinion, ana on the whole anew no
de-ire t? forco pahs. T here has been
o niher better enquiry during tho
week, due no doubt to the tendency
on .he part of seme to accept rather
easier rates, but as far as can be
judged theme who oan possibly man manage
age manage to get ooooa over for sale in
January and February should try to
do bo, so as to taka advantage of the
prloe before the main orop will be
coming in.
Although the Havre Bgaree on 31*1
October, showed only a deficiency of
23000 bagv, equal 1 tuppoce to about
1500 tons or a little less the French
ion' stock to the same date makes
out that Franoe Is 3000 tons, or
45000 bags behind last year's stock
(11990 tons to 31st October 1900 v

uu mbsmd that the English returns
in “ Tcua” also increased the differ difference
