Some tlmo ago thcic was a number ot

caused by tho accumulation of gas In tho

District chemist, to miko an examination
of thosnbwajs of Washington to discover
If there wcro any dangerous accumulation!
In them. Ho has made tho following re
port: Slit: Incompliance with jour request I
havomado an examination ot tlio electric

report upon tho subject: Tho loss of gas by
lcakago In our streets Is stated by the presi
dent of tho Washington Gas Company to
bo but -10 per cent, of tho amount pass
ing Into tho mains. It Is thcrc
foro Improbablo thnt largo leaks
Miould afford a means of supplying suf
ficient gas to form explosive mixtures In
subways. In fact, after carcfitl examina
tion only four mau-holes have been found
where tho odor of gas could bo detected,
namely atTcnnsylviinla uvcnuo and 1'lghth

were It so tho small space, but n few cubic

dcrcr, Nelson Colbert, tlio colored man
convicted of the murder of Philip Yvontzcl
nt tlio Columbia cur stables In October lint.
The hour for tlio hinging was fixed nt 1

manner this morning was hardly that of a
man who In staring cteriiltylu tho face. Ilo
Is Mill hopeful. Nearly nil his time has
been spent In religious exercises, nnd his

Warden Crocker called nt tho Department
of Justice this moruinglo ascertain whether

A delegation of colored pcoplo has been
calling on tho President and making ovcry

W as a general Impression nt tho Jail that tho
execution would bo postponed. Colbert's
parents nnd his nleco called on him this
morning and had u long conversation with
him. Colbert snt behind the grating which
separates tho cell corridors from tlio
rotunda nnd his visitors sat on a bcucli on
tho other side.
His father, a gray-hoaded colored man,
held n little book lu his lund, nnd from
tlmo to tlmo would carry his handkerchief
to his cjes. Tho Interview lasted about an
hour, and Colbert returned to his cell to
cngagolnhls devotion. Although tho Jail
oillclals are willing to Indulge him lu any
thing his appctlto may crave, ho cats only
tho usual pilsou fare, asking for nothing
whatever. Ho nto a light breakfast, con
sisting of hashed meat, wheat bread aud

of n stay lu lho execution or n commuta

hauglng havo been actively going on. At
tho end ot n corridor In tho northeast cor
ner of tho jail stands tho scaffold, ready
now ns It has been for years past to carry
tho death sentenro Into oxec utlon.
l'rom the place whero he stands when
talking to visitors, Colbert can look Into
tho corridor through which ho Is to take
his last bteps on earth. 1 hero Is enough ot
nn angle, however, to shut tho scattold
Itself oft from his view. There Is nothing
to bo dono to tho scaffold oxrent to fasten n
rono to tho trigger. Just to tho left Is a
cell room lu which tho mauwho pulls the

Ottvvw, Ovt., May 2. This nftcruoon
ot H o'clock Ills Lxccllcney, tho flovcruor
(lencrnl, prorogued tho third session of tho
fifth parliament of tho Dominion ot Canada
In the following speech:
Iloi.oiablo Oeiiilemenof the Senate, and
Ocntlcmcn ot tho House ot Commons
In relieving you of tho arduous labors
which tho present session ot Parliament
havo Imposed on jou, I rcjolco that I nm
able to concra t libit c vou on tho number of
Important and useful measures which havo
rrstilli.il from jour deliberations, 1 havo
reason to hope that tho nuthorlty which jou
havo conferred upon my government will
enable them to tncludo an arrangement for
ctTcctlvo steamship communication with
Europo nnd Asia, whereby tho Irado and
commerce of Canada will ho widely ox
tended nnd tho trafllc passing over her
lines of communication greatly developed.
Youhnvo again made liberal provision for
cxicuuiug ino runway lacimics oi mo Do
minion aud for Increasing their clllclcnev.
Tlio act relating to tho electoral frutichUo
will, I believe, bo found an Important im
provement tending to economs, anil cer
tainly In tho administration of that branch
of tho law.
Tho measure bv which tho svslcm of
speedy trials for criminal has been ex
tended to tho maritime provinces Isllkclj
in nrovon vaiuamn nuutiion to our crimi
nal procedure. It is gratifying to kuow
that jour address referring to the boun
daries of Ontario will lead to tho cnrlj set
tlement of tho principal nutation which
has remained unsettled to tho present tlmo
between that province and tlio Dominion
In n manner entirely satlsfactoiy to all con
cerned. Tlio amendment nt tho laws re
lating to copj right will, It Is hoped, remove
somo of the embarrassments uuder which
tho printers and publishers ot Canada have
labored for somo jear past, without doing
Justlco to authors In this or other countries.
You havo provided for greater efllclcncy
and economy In the postal service, for
giving greater facilities for the settlement
of our lands. In tho Northwest Territories,
and for lncrcalng the safeguards of life
and property on our ships. Many of tho
other measures, although of n minor char
acter, will bo found of great usefulness In
conducting tho affairs ot administration.
Gentlemen of lho House of Commons:
You havo liberally provided for tlio vailous
requirements of the public service.
Honorable Gentlemen of tho Senato and
Gentlemen of tho House ot Commons: In
taking lcavo of jou I congratultto jou on
tho Indications of prosperity which appear
In all parts of Canada nud on tho Increasing
revenue, which promises nmply to meet the
nppiopnntlons for tho ycjr. I sincerely
hope that In tho season wlirch Is now open
ing tho lnbors of our pcoplo may bo blessed
by Dlvlno Providence, nud when It shall bo
my duty to summon jou again, I shall bo
nbloto renew tho congratulations which I
have alicady expressed ou tho marked wel
fare nud piogrcss ot tho Dominion.
