THE EVENING JOURNAL THURSDAY. APRIL 8. 1897. HERE'S A PRETTY FIX ! PARK COMMISSIONERS AND THE . CUT AT LOGGERHEADS ; I.-.- J -' . ' i ' Itch About ths Raising of D ben torts for ths Payment or&ocxUff Park-City Cods dl Placed tea Corner By ths Board of Park uucnaeot : .; ' , There :la a ' big row . on between the 'vboardi.of park com- tn I mm Unorl enil Ih nttn girding the raising of debentures for the purchase of Rockliffe Parkl The difficulty threatens to open up new litigation between the original owners of the property and the city. j, ' A few days ago City' Clerk Henderson , was Instructed to ask the park commissioners for an estimate of the ccat of purchasing ; the ; property together with the accnied Interest on the original purchase price from the time of the purchase to date, in orjjer that the city might call for debentures for the sum total of purchase price and Interest, and thus not be compelled to take the 'interest accrued, amounting to about $5,000, from the year's appropriation to the board of works. In other words, the commissioners were asked to make the purchase date from the present time Instead of 2 wo years ago, when the purchase actually took place. '!.:' ': Commissioners Decline. . . .. , The park commissioners . met ; last evening r discussed the proposition, and by a vote of 3 to 2 de-lined to entertain the proposal. ' The city is therefore placed In the position that only' $44,256 or the' original purchase price can be raised by debentures, and the interest amounting to $5,250 will have to come out of the year's revenue in order to square up the purchase with Messrs. Keefer & Clarke. . ; j' At the meeting: last evening Mayor Bingham t and: Commissioner Ask with favored the granting of the. city's request, and closing the whole matter up amicably,) but Commissioners Christie, Stuart and O'Leary were opposed to it. Commissioner Patterson was absent The aldermen claim that ,tne action of the park commissioners is. a mean way to get revenge at the city council for withdrawing the suits from the Supreme Court, and the 'more recent action with the view of limiting the park commissioners' powers. They also state that the money for the park cannot be paid over by the city on account of the unusually large expenditure In the fire and waterworks departments, and In this case Messrs. Keefer and Clarke' are likely at any moment to take action against the city to recover the price of their property. '. j ; MILLION DOLLAR FIRB The Biggest Block la Inoxrilla Tenn-!.:.

(Continued from page 1) Mr. Hasley said tha' it was never the Intention to retire from lacrosse, as they had the nucleus of a good team. Mr. W. L. Maltby looked upon the question as a crucial one. They were grtat exponents of amateurism, and there was nothing to be gained by playing with semi-professionals. Pro fessionalism had spoiled many klnls of games, and it would spoil laeross. The championship was a secondary matter. I The Association was formed to make manly men.' Mr. Reed thought that It was bard that but of a membership of 1,400 they could not get a good lacrosse team as well as a 'good football -team. He did cot think that it would be to their credit to withdraw from the league. Mr. D. E. Bowie wanted them to see that the C. A. A. A. rules governing the game were carried out. i They should try and stamp out professional-Ism. I i . The chairman remarked that the players themselves had said, "Pay your players." , Mr. Reed then moved, seconded by Mr. A. A. Smith, that the report be adopted, i after striking out the recommendation clause. - On a vote, being taken this .was car-' ric-d. , . . . . Mr. A.: Gardner then moved, seconded by Mr. Balrd, that the club withdraw from the five-club league. ; Mr. Bramley moved. In amendment, seconded by Mr. Robertson, that it be left to the incoming committee. ' Tha amendment was carried. CURLERS' FAREWELL.

More Trouble Reported for the Spanish Colonial Office. New York. April 8. Dr. J. Julio Henna, president jf the Porto Rican revolutionary comiiilttee in this city says he yesterday ecelved private Information from the committee in the island of Porto Rico to the effect that the country had taken up arms against the Spanish government, the uprising having taken place In Taucayo and Ad-juntas. ( The news of the uprising, it was reported by a member at the meeting of the committee, had been also received in this dty yesterday by a well-known banking firm In Wall street Which, has, close business connection with one of the leading banking houses in Porto Rico. . An uprising occurred at Porto Rl:o in 1869 at Lares, but It was over In a day. Since then the island has always been faithful to Spain. If the revolt spreads over Porto Rico, the j Important colon yf Spain remaining at peace with the mother country wUV be the. Canary Islands.! ; Hiill-News '.'' HULL, Thursday, April 8. , Thoa O'Leary. of Low,' appeared this morning before Recorder Champagne, charged with assaulting a man named Charron. It appears that Charron, who boarded the Gatineau Valley train In Ottawa one day last March, was followed by the accused, who tried hard to pick a quarrel and finally struck Charron when he got off at Low. ; Recorder Champagne imposed a fine of $4.00 on the prisoner, who will have to pay, besides $30.00 costs. ..: j , i The ;case '.against Auguste Rivard; charged with ill-treating . and deserting his wife, was continued yesterday in the Recorder's Court. A number of witnesses were examined. The prisoner's wife swore that she had deserted her1 husband five years ago and Ilved4 with another man' at Potsdam, N. T. Mr. Foran, counsel for' the defendant, in his cross-examination; also discovered that Mrs. Rivard had lived in Ottawa in company with some young men. The prisoner said 'that he decided to desert his wife because she was conducting herself badly. The recorder, after hearing all the evidence, acquitted the prisoner. Rivard will, however, remain In jail on a capais Issued by the Circuit Court some time ago. . The wife, who had taken an action against her husband for alimony, got Judgment in her favor, and the prisoner was ordered to pay her $4 a week alimony. However, Rivard skipped from! the' town and paid no attention to' the court's Judgment Mr. Foran will act as counsel for the defendant in this case also. The Quebec government has decided to dispose ' of the: Aylmer Court House for $1,000. , A letter was sent to that effect to the village, and the offer will probably be accepted. Some time ago the village offered a higher price for the Court House in question, but the government agreed to dispose of it. The buildingIs said' to be worth more than the price asked for, and the Liberals claim that the sale la made merely In view of the coming provincial election. The Court House is mold at that price on condition that the people of South' Hull and surrounding places may have the use of It. ; Mr. Jos. Belanger. dealer In dry goods and groceries, at Gatineau Point, has assigned, to Mr. Wm. Smith, general storekeeper of the same place. The liabilities are In the neighborhood of $3,000. -i I - THE ARCHBISHOP'S MEET The Rotable Gathering la Montreal To-day at ths Instance or Mgr. Del Val ! Montreal, April 8.

A deputation of about twenty prominent ratepayers headed by Aid. Payment and St. Jean! waited upon City 'Engineer Surtees this morning and informed him that they must have a new permanent roadway covering for the street and were prepared to pay for it. ; The city engineer! promised to prepare an estimate of what It would cost for an asphalt, granolithic or brick covering for the information of the property owners. The deputation consisted of Aid. Payment, Aid. St. Jean. Dr. Valade, Joseph Boyden, JasJ Warnock, E. Leblanc, John O'Leary T. Landriault. E. Clievrier, Ex-Aid. Rowan, Jos. Egleson. J. M. Qulnn, D. V. Ranger, Nap. Valln and J. P. Goulden. j . ! . j . Aid. Payment Introduced the deputation stating that they wanted the street put in proper shape at once. - f City Engineer Surtees remarked that , he could not state the exact condition the street was in this spring as the snow was not all off it. ' Mr. Jos. Boyden "We hayev "come here to have an understanding In time as to what is to be done." ' Mr. Surtees remarked' .that he knew there were two blocks of the street from George street' down that were In heed of a new covering. No More Patching. Mr. Boyden "I object and we all object to the street being patched up any more." j ' I Mr. Surtees "You petitioned the council for the syenite roadway and you got exactly what you wanted.? : Mr.. Boyden "Yes. but we did not contract to get such a street as we have. There Is strong talk of contest. Ing the whole business but probably we can place some ; new covering on the street at a moderate cost that will ht least make It clean and respect-able."'- ; - , The city engineer said he bad put on an extra coat of. covering but It only made the street worse. Mr. Boyden "If we cannot get some hard surface like granolithic there is np use doing anything more with the street at all." Mr. Surtees "Well the foundation Is aa good as can be found on any permanent roadway In the city." . Mr. Boyden "We don't care so much about what the foundation is it we have a good surface.' . Aid. Payment "Would a brick pavement be more costly than granolithic or asphalt T The city engineer said he would require a day or two to figure that out. What of the'Rallway Company ? "If we put ob another surface how would it affect:' the jElectrio Railway Company ?" asked Mr. J. M. Qulnn. Mr. Surtees said he anticipated there would be trouble getting the company to do what would be necessary as they had fought against the city before. Mr. Boyden "Could there be enough of the surface taken off to admit of the laying of a brick pavement without raising the level of the street." Mr. Surtees said he thought there could. He' then showed samples of brick to the deputation and strongly recommended Messala brick. ' Mr. Boyden asked where this brick had been tested. Mr. Surtees replied that It was extensively used In Detroit and other cities. , :' . t - ; Mr. Boyden "I prefer a fairly good roadway, although we may have to pay something for it" Mr. Qulnn "I would never have signed the petition for a syenite pavement if I had not been led to believe that syen tte would make a good permanent roadway. At present the covering Is being scraped off the street after every rainstorm, and soon there will be no covering left." Mr. Boyden "Yes,! all the surface will be scraped off by next October, and then we will have a street In the same condition that it : was 20 years ago." ! ' i Mr. Warnock said ho had a preference for an asphalt pavement . ,! Would Prepare Estimates. Mr. Surtees 'Til tell you what can be done. The street can be put In temporary repair, and I iwill give you' an estimate for brick, granolithic and asphalt paving, and also an estimate for a new material, used Instead of cement, which I understand has been successfully experimented upon In Boston." Aid. Payment "We have bad enough of experimenting." Mr. Surtees "Yes, more experimenting." ' Mr. Boyden again we will have no 'said he was op- posed to having the street patched. "Let us decide at onoe what we want," he added. "I suggest that the engineer prepare estimates of the different kinds of pavement for us immediately." The other gentlemen on the deputation agreed to this. I "We don't want the) street pavement to cost more In. the end than It would have had we got an asphalt or other permanent roadway at first," added Mr. Boyden. "I don't think it will," replied the city engineer. I The deputation then withdrew. REV MR. RAMSAY'S INDUCTION. 'The Ottawa Presbytery . this afternoon arranged for the Induction of Rev. p. M.

Well-Known Toronto Boniface Expires Under the Surgeon's Hands. Toronto, Ont, April 8. John Wright the well-known and popular manager of the' Walker 'House, died last evening while under ' chloroform administered for an operation. Mr. Wright has been suffering for some time from an Incurable horny growth in the lower part of the back. Although it was Incurable, his sufferings from It were so great that about two months ago an effort was made to examine it under chloroform, to see If any alleviation could be effected.' Last night the same thing was attempted again. Drs. J. E. Graham, Adam, Wright Ross and Strange were in attendance. Almost Imediately after the. chloroform had been administered to Mr. Wright he died. : MINING AND THE C. P. R. Sir William Van Home's Reference to the New Developments. Montreal April 8. At the C. P. K. at'.rual meeting yesterday, the president Sir William Van Horne. said : , "One of the most encouraging features of our situation la the wide attjn-t'on the mines of British Columbia are attracting and the great activity which prevails there. The effect of the min. ing developments in that province laU ytar are manifest in an Increase of 21 per cent in the freight and passenger earnings of our Pacific division, which embraces the lines between Columbia river'and the Pacific coast "The new traffic contributed besides to the earnings of the rest of the system. "But mining developments are -lot confined to British Columbia. In the hitherto unproductive section between lake Superior and Lake of the Woods especially about Lake of the Woods, rich discoveries have been reported in great number, and mining operation are actively going on. "For these and other reasons the out-lock seems to me promising, and If w.s are blessed with average crops I think we may fairly expect a prosperous year." n ALL THE WAY FROM SCOTLAND. Four cars of Scotch sandstone arrived at the Canada Atlantic this mcrnlng for the C. Ross Co. building, consigned to Hooper Bros. & Currie, contractors for the stone cutting. The delay in getting this stone from Scot land by way of Portland has delayed the building somewhat The nature ot the article and Its niobabla consumers must always be I considered tn making up a list of media. ,' AGAIN A CONSERVATIVE VICTORY SCORED IN CHAMPLAIN COUNTY The Majority Largely, K educed. Hovsvar Toe Liberals In Ottawa are sot Particularly sorry for Thtlr Fallsn Candidate They Think hs Lacked Backbone Ste. Anne de la Perade, April 8. The bye-election (n Champlaln county for the House of Commons, 'rendered necessary by the unseating of Dr. Mar-cotte, Conservative, o'n the ground of undue clerical influence, took place yesterday. It resulted In 'the re-election of Dr. Marcotte by about 160 majority. This is over two hundred less that he received in the general elections last June, but the Liberals were hopeful this time of winning outright. Contrary to expectations early yesterday,, the total vote polled was not heavy. The roads were bad and quite a number of men are still away In the lumber woods. There are three polls remaining to be hfard from. They are situated In the St. Maurice territory and difficult of access. They will notl materially affect the result as In the 'last election only fifty-five votes were cast in all three polls. Dr. Marcotte securing a majority of 19, Compare with last year the show-ln is : Marcotte's majority, J897 159. Marcotte's majority, 1896 376.. Ottawa Talk. j The defeat of Dr. Trudel in Cham-plain' has not caused very much sorrow in Liberal circles in parliament This is owing to his declaration that he would vote against the school settlement if the papal ablegate bad decided against the settlement As the real Issue between the two parties In Quebec Is the school question, said a leading Liberal to-day, "Dr. Traders position made us feel that really there was not much difference to the rest of us who was elected, the Liberal or the Conservative. If the Liberal was to vote agarnat us on the school settlement I for one would prefer to see the Conservative elected. There were no doubt many In" Champlaln who thought as I did. "The Liberal majority In parliament Is large enough without Dr. Trudel. and the only reason for trying to capture the constituency was on account of the attitude of the clergy towards the settlement. Had Dr. Trudel acted as Mr. Guite did or as Mr. Champagne did. he would have been returned. He ought to have taken warning from what happened the most of those who took the bishop's pledge at the last genera! election. While those who refused to take any pledge were returned by large majorities those who did wer either defeated or elected in many Instances by small majorities.". The Conservative politicians are well pleased, even though the majority 1.1 reduced. They have been so hard hit lately as to welcome any kind of success. ' IAN MACLAREN. . , i The Heresy Charges Against Him Developing Into a Farce. London, April 6. At a meeting today of the Durham Presbytery to arrange for the Impending meeting of the Synod there. Rev. J. Middlemasi, of Sunderland, remarked that Dr. Kennedy Moore had laid upon the table of the Synod a petition charging Rv. Jchn Watson (Ian MacLaren). the w;!l known novelist with defective, if n?t erroneous views. ' A letter had, however, been printed In the Presbyterian Megazine In which the moderator. Dr. Balgarnie. contended that Dr. Moore's views were unsound and might similarly be described as defective. If not erroneous. 'Or. Middlemass suggest ed that the moderator put In a petition against Dr. IJoore. He'added that the spectacle of three doctors of divinity ergaged in a triangular combat might not perhaps be edifying, but anyhow. It would let the world st bow tber loved one another.
