It baa reniaintsd in tis noasaeitiou nearly ten aays without notice or acknowledgment. As the itub-ject is of public infe-rest and coucerns to aoiuti talent Uie whole dominion, 1 ask you, on behalf of ttiooe woo think with nie, to be j-ood enough to give insertion to my letter in your ouiuuuia. 1 am, etc., etc., . ! SaNOFoRD Flemiso. Ottawa, Deo. 8 1st, 1&94. To Ilia Worship the ju'ayor : i Sir I have the honor to address yon on the subject of tbe carnival. 1 have privately expressed the views of mauy of my fellow citizens who think as 1 oo, that this is an unfortunate time and rlace for holding such a public festival, have taken no public part in the matter until hut night, when at Ih - request of friends: I appeared most reluctantly at a meeting of the subscribers, and . at which the publio were permitted to be present. . , On that occasion I moved that the carnival be' postponed, and gave the reasons which are appeuded. It .was moved in amendment that the carnival be proceeded with, and the amendment was carried. I am not raising objections to carnivals on proper occasions, : I rejoice to see my fellow countrymen enjoy themselves in. healthy exercises, and it has always given me delight to join them. Many of the citizens, however, do not think it becoming that a season of public rejoicing should follow so soon after the burial of the deceased premier. Some, however, appear to think differently, and in the interest of peace and expediency I venture to appeal to you as the head of the municipality and chief guardian of the city O endeavour, to End a middle course. I am' unable to recognize that the meeting I attended last night was representative of the citizens of Ottawa, but accepting the decision of that -gathei. ing, it merely affirms that the carnival should be proceeded with. ! I would ask, therefore, what is to prevent it going on in February ; in place : of January f Is there any reason why it should not be a fortnight later? Every consideration, even the weather, suggests that the week of hpliday should be at a later date. j . . It is not easy for some of us to understand the important position which Canada has ' attained in the eyes of the world, but of this some indication may be found in the Imperial honors to the remains of Sir John Thompson in the passage from Windsor to Canada. We cannot set out of view that Ottawa is the seat of Government. This city is peculiarly situated in regard to the death ox the late Premier ; it ia the political capital of the Dominion, and as such the residence of the Governor General and the members of the Minibtry. The Colonial Conference held here in June and July last gave to Ottawa high rank in the Empire, and also world-wide distinction ; it is incumbent on us therefore to have some regard to the position we occupy and avoid all proceedings which may testify any want of self-respect or suggest any absence of that consideration ot the public propriety to be observed by every intelligent community. We owe this to our fellow-Canadians as fell as to ourselves, for I honestly think that toe feeling ox respect for Canadians generally will not be enhanced when it comes to be known that: the citizens of the Capital with what many may consider indecent haste, after burying the Premier, hold a week of public rejoicing. i am conscious of noeubstantiai reason why the Committee should determine not to put off the Carnival a single day. Unless it is to be divested of all publio character, I respectfully submit that it would be becoming en the part of the Mayor to uw his influence to postpone it a furtnitiht. By so doing he would gratify all tnoee wiio wish it to be proceeded wiin, while at the same time he would meet the tiews of many of the citizens who are .pained, to see active preparations 111 our midst for a week of public holiday und Bport when the whole Em. pne is iu uiouruiag. 1 humbly 'submit that . the Carnival may be, without detriment, postpoued until the first week; in February as a mark of 'respect for a distinguished ftliow citiz-u, who .in his life and in his deitlu has done, so uiucb, to use the words spoken by tne Uueeu before he passed itWAj forever, " m cementing the' lanaiian uouiuiiou closer to tne empire.

Rosalind jBertrand," wife of Jos. Bertrand, j the man alleged to have been murdered near Rockland by farmer r'rsijk Johnston," Is persuaded that her bukband Is dead,. . . i ' ' Eiceut toi the rumors she has heard she has no Idea as to how EST" came to his; death. She is -confident however, thit were he aljve he would not neglect ber so long. ; Moreover lira. , Bertrartd has ' had, so she told a Journal reporter, what she. considers "signs'1 from the world supernaL , , During tlje week following the i JOS. BERTRAWTA ' The misting mka (from a reoani photograph Saturday 41ght Bertrand was expected home), but did not arrive, Mrs. Bertrand saSv, or rather heard, the first '; "slgn-f At 7 o'clock In ; the morning first as she was about to get up she heard a voice In one corner of the .roomcall he name, "Rosalind." The name was then repeated In the opposite corner. ; . " . Mrs. BectTand was alone In the house at. thitime wit!, the children. I Alt were . asieep duv - nereeu. duo could not ricognise the voloe. As soon as Mrs. Bertrand heard this warning she' felt sure there must be something i wrong at Rockland The following Saturday night, the second Saturday that Bertrand was expected home, Mrs. Bertrand sat up till 12 o'clock watching fpr him. !' A Gruesome Sign. At about a quarter to twelve she happened to look out of the window and saw against the window ot the third house, away two small lights, such as are put around coffins. The people in all the bouses were in bed. The lights began to move away and at the same time to grow dimmer until lost in sight. 1 his second sign convinced Mrs. Bertrand that all was not right with her husband. The next morning she. insisted that her brother-in-law, her husband's brother. Should go to Rockland at onoee and investigate. He went Immediately and, oi course, made the discovery that his brother had left for home the previous Saturday night and had not returned to Rockland. The house ia which the prisoner Johnston "I . - livet, 1 Bertrand, the missing man, left home the last time at 1 o'clock on a Monday morning. His purpose was to walk to Rocicland to be there to commence work at the regular hour. When he walked out into the darkness, a lantern in his hand, Mrs. Bertrand even then had a sort of warning. -' Siie says ahe had a very peculiar feeling as he stepped into tea night, iiertrand told her that he was going to take the family to Kockland to live. If he could make satisfactory arrangements he vk.ui.-i come home the next Saturday ai d take, the famiiy aw..y with him oc MuuJa;! However If he did artaege for a hou In Rockland he said he woul.l send a card during the week to notify her (a ortier that she might get things ready for removal. No card ever came or word ol any kind. . I No Reason to Skip. - The first Saturday that Bertrand eame back after he got work at Rock-laud be left his wile i. She expected him back the next (faturdty with more money,- Bertratd had before worked at p aces some distance from home and hud not uiways eoiae home ou (Saturday .nlghte. However, when he said he would come he never tailed to do so. Mrs. Uertraud says her bnsbaad always treated bar well and they lived happily. He owed only a few small store bills and there wan no reason so far as she knows for. him to skip out. j 1 ''Saw Bertrand' Wraith. J. Deschants, a relative of Bertrand', with whom Bertrand -boarded In Rockland, told The Journal that he, too, saw what may have been- a sign." - Ou the Tueedny after the Saturday Bertrand left for home (the date oi tbe disappearance Irc.isr.ts says thnt while he was workUg at a ga.'ig saw he happened to look tp and iu one of the oaS!i6-ways of the xnlil saw what be bellsrvsxt was Bertrand, MRS BER I-- "Hello," said he to his son who was working near by, "Joe is back." JuBt-atl this moment the; "stock" as the aawn log is called, came oat and Des-ehants had to busy himself with the planks, When he looked up again the figure had disappeared. So for as known, Beertrand's last meal was taken In Descbants' house at noon on Saturday, Nov. 3. Bert rand said he' was going home that night and could not spare the time to come back for his Supper. Ac- . cordingly Mrs. Deschniits prepared a lunch to take with him. He seemed j to i act as usual In the mill that afternoon. As soon na the whistle blew for 6 o'clock Bert rand was seen by I DecchantB and quitee n number of fellow-workmen to go in the direction of:. the log-way 'Where bonts were kept.. He carried a lantern and a bundle tied up In a red handkerchief. 1 Said he had Only a Quarter. It Is known 'that besides his lunch Bertrand had In his! bundle a pair of small shoes for his slx-yenr-old child. Apparently he had only tweiity five Old shanty in which the deed Is supposed to I have been committed.. cents In money with him. When leaving Deschants' he showed a quarter , which he said he hud to pay for his passage across the river. He got Mrs. PbisChunta to buy the child's shoes for him because he bad not the time to do so in Rockland, and Edwards' "Rockland money" a local currency, is not taken in Buckingham. By those who think Bertrand ho not been killed or drowned but has skipped out-this quarter incident Is - regarded as. a ruse of Bertraml's to throw off suspicion, the Idea being that If he had only 25cte. he could not get away very far.. If Bertrand had skipped out the fact that he had completed arrangements for the; removal of his family to Kockland, might be regarded as a further effort to delude.' He had arranged to rent a houne from Eli Bergeron and until .the house was ready for him he and his family were to live with the Deschants. The latter expected) Bertrand and his family to arrive the Monday following the Saturday on which' he disappeared. Xavler Giroux for whom Bertrand worked, also understood from Bertrand that he was to bring the family to Rockland. Bertrand drew no money during the week of his disappearance. I Bertrand worked in Rockland in I all 16 days. The balance of his pay waa eolllected by his brother, Eus- tache Bertrand of Buckingham. - ". '. Did he Cross? . I Bertrand was seen golng'towards the log-way apparently for a boat to cross the river in, but no one saw him get a boat and no one can say positively 1 whether he ever got across : the river. - ' 1 Bertrcnd had arranged with Jos. Trookis, who Uvea on the Quebec side to ferry him acrose. Trookle's wife got sick on Saturday and the husband was unable to keep his appointment with Bertrand. Apparently no Rockland boats were taken that night and It Is certain Bertrand did not rent a boat. ' At the officer of the W. C. Edwards Co. a Journal reporter was told that no one had asked for or got any of the "concern's" boats on the night In question. Neither were they notified that any boats were missing or had been picked up by the Co.'s steamers. - Such occurrences .i are always supposed to be . reported, Messrs. Gaudens, pbuilot and iothers who were reported to have lost boats, said when seen by The journal that the reports were Incorrect. Every time a boat is lost, it is reported to the mill . watchmen, Jos. La vole and Jos. McKee respectively of the upper and lower mills. They then keep an eye open for the missing boats. Neither of the watchmen was told of any boat being taken on the night in question A Possibility. - There Is Just a possibility that Bertrand got a "concern" boat and crossed in it. At times when the river men missed their boats they neglected to report to the office if tiiey found them again w Ithout much difficulty. A boat taken by Bertrand might have been found on the opposite shore and no particular notice taken of the matter. Most of the men -who worked on the river in thene boats have now gone up to tbe shanties. A couple of weeks alter the disappearance of Bertrand, Estab Denaud of Thurso found a flat-bottomed boat on the Quebec shore. (between Rockland and Thurso. The'bow was stove in and the boat was half full of sand and w utcr. No such boat has however been missed .at Kockland. If Bertrand used this boat it is unknown where he got It. Denaud, In speaking to the Journal corroborated the statement of the prisoner, Johnston, that the house In which the deed is supposed to have been committed was used for the storage of beets and cabbages ana that this fact explained away tbe alleged blood stains. Several mnth Mgo while out boating Denaud sough', shelter beside the old house during a storm and while there saw the fcfek of beet and' cabbages in the house. A Rough Night. If Bertrand got a boat that i l,ht ai.d Att init-d to c:os tbe river, li is reasot ails to expect -he was drowned. It whs o.e of the roughest nighis experienced o:i the river for a lo.ig time. kl.s. Andre Trookie, wife of ue aged ferryman, has lived oil the rivar for 15 years but she narrowly escaped bti..g stamped when she crossed tho r.vcr that ulght.Burtrand was uot an experienced boatman. Mrs. Jos. Trookie, who lives, nearly oppoite Kock.and. toid t..e Journal that a t.l. I. dark man crossed the, river that night. She did uot learh' his name but he was bound tor Buckingham. He - carried a lantern and v or d rk ilo H-Vcro s?j seve.-al Saruriiays after Bertrand tlUap pea red. M. s. I-iJore Hamelln, the next door neighbor whoe uncle, John Allan, now of Three" Rivers, gave a mau some matches on the fateful night, says she did not see the stranger's face and can tot say more th-tn that he jnrore dark clothes. $he did not notice the mah ta k to himself or jerk his arras about as Bertrand was in the habit ot doing. This man may have been the one seen by Mrs. Trookie and also the oie that at Johnston's enquired as to the distance to iiuckinghani.Of course this enquirer was at first supposed to have been Bertrand. How (003 T1X d ZO OS rAGI 8) FATHER DAWSON DEAD . i . . i . :. - THE VENERABLE PRIEST PASSES AWAY BELOVED BY ALL A Cold Contracted a Few Day Ago Carried UimOfl-His Last Service Perforated on Christmas Day, A" venerable man greatly beloved by persons of every nationality and creed, Rev. Father Dawson, passed away on Saturday evening. - For over forty years he has been a well-known figure to everyone In Ottawa, and as years began to tell on him and his physlclal activity became less, many were the expressions of sympathy tor the old gentleman who in the course of nature must soon leave them. On Christmas morning be eelebruted mass in the Convent chapel of the Congregation de Notre Dame, Gloucester street, and then contracted a cold. Thoughtlessly he had gone from his lodgings to the chap el without his overcoat. He took a chilli and though he carried out the service and even later in the day went to tbe Archbishop's Palace to :ish His Grace the .compliments ot the sev-scn, bis little- remaining strength was exhausted and he returned home to die. The late Dr. Dawson was a Scotchman being born -at Red Caven, Banffshire, Scotland, on July 80, 1810. s At the.grauimer school at Portsog be became, well grounded in the classics and when 16 years ot age be went to pursue his studies at the Episcopal seminary at Paris, together with the 'late Bishop Gillies and; Mgr. Dupan-loup. Thence during the revolution of 1880 he went to Donai and wound up his studies at St. Mary's College, Blalrs, Scotland. Being successful in his examination for the priesthood he was appointed assistant In the parish of Dumfries. ' In 1862 on the Invitation of Bishop Mac Done 1 the reverned Father came to Canada. Before leaving England he attended the first diocesan y od of the church of Rome he:d in London since the Reformation. Pepe Plus IX at this time also gave him as an acknowledgment of his church services, the right or privilege' in this country to perform the church office as he had been accustomed to do in Scotland, according to the Roman order. Arriving in Bytown, after a brief, stay In Quebec, he was assigned to Upper town church and this charge he held for over five -years. In the sixties he waa selected by Commandant Lord Alexander Russell to become chap'aln to the Queen' forces. . Celebrated His Jubilee. , Of late years, the departed gentleman baa had no settled charge. In 1885 he celebrated his golden jubilee as a priest. In 181)0. his SOth birthday was remembered by his friends in the city who tendered him a reception and made him a presentation In the city hall. The affair was nuder the auspices of St. Andrew's society and was taken part in by ci'.Ueua ot all creeds and nationalities. Dr. Dawson was some time ago appointed an honorary vicar general of the dl-ecsa or Alexandria. Both Laval and Ottawa Universities bestowed the title of Doctor of Letters upon deceased. Queen's University gave him the title U L. D.' At the last anntfal convocation of Queen's he delivered the baccalaureate sermon. His effort was loudly praised. Dr. Dawsou attained tconsiderable fame in the world of letters. His best known works are his "Plus IX. and his time" and his "History ot the Catholics of Scotland." Dr. Dawson was chaplain of the St. Andrew's society of Ottawa and an officer of the S.aP. C. Dr. Dawson was chaplain of St. Protestants as 'well as Catholics could not but admire. His was a noble, generous character. His sole aim in life seemed toabe to do good. He was a man who was above all bigotry. Such religion as his would soon make the world one. The funeral will take place from deceased's late residence at 9 o'clock Wednesday morning. Jottings About Town.
