As soon as Colonel Partridge was advised of the coming of the cold V!a\e, ' directions were given to section super- intendents and others all along the ;ine, to use every effort to keep tfhe ! channel open and to assist boats to their destination.

It was even able to break this up. but as the channel of the canal is so nar- row as to leave no room for disposing of the broken ice. this did not furnish the needed relief.

There is a chance, too, that Che contest may not be confined to the present candidates, Palma and Maso. One or two others, it is intimated, may get in the race before the finish. Yet when Cuba reaches the stage that she will assist in the election, as a state of the American Union, of a President of the United States, her canvasses will attract much more attention from tihe world at large than they can under present conditions That time may not be so far distant, either, as some persons imagine.

The application is based on the al- legation-that evidence has been discov- ered wihich tends to show that Frenchy was not the murderer of the woman. The argument was made before Gov. Odell by Paul Fuller, of the law firm of Coiudert Brothers. Ovide Robillard, who has been attorney for Frenchy for several years, was also present The woman was murdered in room No. 31 of the hotel. The key to the room was missing after the murder. An affidavit from George Damon, of Cranford, N. J., was presented to the governor, stating that on the night of tihe murder a banish servant employed by iDamon, and who had been secured at Castle Garden, remained away from home all night. Subsequently he dis- appeard, leaiving behind him in his room, bloody trousers and shirt, and a brass key- with: the number 31.-upon it The key has been (found to be identical with others used in the hotel wihere the woman was murdered. An affidavit from Jacob Riis, a news- paper man, of New York city, was read. He made an examination of the room occupied by Frenchy on the night of the murder, and had found no blood spots on the wall or door. At Frenchy's trial it had been shown that there were a few blood spots on the wall. An affidavit was also read tending to show that the interpreter at the trial ha,d not correctly interpreted the tes- timony of Frendhy, who spoke a slang composed of Arabic, French and Span- ish, The jury at the trial had refused to find the prisoner guilty of murder in the first degree, and Mr. Fuller be- lieved that if these facts were before the jury they would have acquitted him. In conclusion he said that if the iGovernor was not convinced of the iman's innocence by the argument pre- sented, a commissioner should be ap- pointed to take testimony.

Saturday night brought to a close St. John's churdh fair, which had been suc- cessfully carried on for the entire week by tihe congregation. As a result of their ceaseless efforts they have to their credit as a grand gross receipt the neat sum of two thousand twenty- five dollars. When the expenses of the fair 'are paid there will remain as a profit something over one thousand nine hundred dollars. The contest for the ladies' gold watch carried on 'by the Misses Alice Leonard and Alice Holland, was a good source of revenue. The amount which the young ladies deposited with the Rev. Father Savage, was four hundred twenty-eight dollars and twenty cents, of Which Miss Leo- nard received two hundred fifty-six . dollars and seventy-six cents, and Miss j Holland one hundred seventy-one dol- lars and forty-four cents, Miss Leonard thereby winning the beautiful watch.

Mr. Hag- erty is no stranger to the people of Plattsburgh, and in this instance he spoke with all the feeling and elo- quence of which he is capable. Mr. 'Ernest Langdon's sympathetic voice was next heard to advantage in that beautiful baritone solo, \Oh Morning Land.\ The closing exercises of the Order were next, and the audience joined the lodge in singing the ©oxology. Rev. J. j^ubin pronounced the Benediction, and the orchestra played as a finale, Holamann's \Fraternity.\ Thus ended the first memorial ser- vices of the Platt&U'rgh Lodge. They were neld for the following departed brothers: Solomon Scheier, William V. S. Woodward and Jofen .'Clitherow Smith. The exercises Sunday gave an op- portunity to get an insight into the Order of Elks, and if all departments of the order are carried out along lines as complete as were those of Sun- day's memorial exercises, then the or- der is to be commended on its thor- oughness and beneficence.
