Ottawa, May 31.—Sir John. Mac Do
nald's condition is practically unchanged,
since laat evening, except that bit vital
powers seem to be gradually weakening.
Touching references to the dying pre
mier were made in all the churches,
both Catholic and Protestant, this morn
ing. Hon. David Mills, M. P., a promi
nent Liberal and an authority on consti
tutional law, gives it as his opinion that
in the event of Bir John's death, the
cabinet ministers would not have to
resign and appeal to the people before
accepting office under a new chief. He
said a law was still in force that allows
a minister to resume office within thirty
days after his resignation' without re
" Sir* John's life now hangs only on a
slender thread. He is righting with his
characteristic tenacity against the dread
visitor; but with his vitality slowly
ebbing away, the unequal struggle
cannot be mvcb longer maintained.
Since Friday afternoon, though de
prived of the power of speech, he.has
maintained the cheerfulness for which
he is noted in health. Though still
conscious, he realizes that' his doom is
approaching, and seems prepared for the
final call. With his left arm, which ie
still serviceable, be makes known hia
desires. He passed the night quietly,
.and enjoyed periods of brief rest.
Whenever Lady Mac Donald enters the
sick room, his face, which has assumed
an ashen hue, lights up. Nothing can
describe the attachment he entertains
for the talented woman who for many
years has been tbe wife of Canada's

bury, the Marquis of Lome, Lord Lands
downe. viceroy of India, and scores of
otlier distinguished people have sent ca

at tbe premier's condition.
A crisis in political circles is immi
nent. The cabinet sat six hours yester
day, but as if by arrangement the lips of
all'ministers are sealed as to what was
done at the met ting.
Sir Hector Langevan, as senior privy
councillor, will, in tbe event of Sir
John's demise, be summoned by the
governor-general to assume charge of
public affairs. But in view Of the fact
that grave charges for malfeasance in
office are at present hanging over the
head of the minister of public works, he
will naturally decline, leaving the ques
tion of leadership between Sir John
Thompson and Sir Charles Tapper, the
Canadian high commissioner in Eng
land. The government has already held
an informal conference with the minis
ter of justice. Indications are that a
large wing of the Conservative party will
insist upon she selection of Sir Charles
Tupper as the next premier, Sir John
Thompson being a Roman Catholic. A
caucus of the party will be held at an
early date, and parliament will be
asked tomorrow to adjourn, probably
for three weeks. The general feeling is
to the effect that Sir Charles Tripper's
antagonism to the Grand Trunk railway
will prove a serious obstacle to hia suc
cessful administration of affairs.
At 5 o'clock this afternoon the pre
mier partookv df some nourishment
which he swallowed more easily than
usual. He then dozed off and awoke at
about 7:30. t
There is no change in his condition.

Nebraska's Governor-Elect Does Not
Expect to be Seated.
Cincinnati, May 81.—The Commercial-
Gazette's Janesville, Ohio, special says:
Hon. James E. Boyd of Nebraska, who
is here attending his father's funeral,
stated to old friends that there was very
little hope of the decision of the United
States supreme court relieving him of
his disability and putting him in the
gubernational chair, by reversing tbe
decision of the Nebraska supreme court.
He thought, moreover, that the act
making the territory of Nebraska a
state, with the provision tbat all the
residents should become citizens, would
have no weight against the statutes of
the United States, on what constitutes
citizenship. He says he never suspected
that his father was not a naturalized
citizen until after his flection.

Splendid Performances at the Inter-

the day, especially in the athletic line.

his own. The races begin at Westches

THE OAKLANDS NOr IN IT.
San Francisco, May 31.—The Sacra
mento team won both games from Oak
land today. The morning contest at
Emeryville was closely played and the
pitching on both sides so strong that
very little safe hitting was done. Work
did most of the hitting for his side.
Brrttain's error was very costly, and
was partly responsible for Oakland's de
feat. Score: Sacramento, 6; Oakland, 3.
In the afternoon the Senators assumed
lead at start. In the fourth inning, with
with two men on bases, Hardie knocked
out a pretty home drive and tied score.
In the fifth the Oakland pitcher's wild
ness filled tbe bases, and Sunday brought
in three runs by batting out a two-base
hit. Score: Sacramento 11, Oakland 9.

ing fine, 3000 people attended the Recre

score of 4 tq.2. Both teams put up a re
markable game, the fielding being at all
times brilliant and sensational.

Seattle, May 31.—One of the sleek

east, having corralled everything in

Flaisig formed a partnership with J eter
Bauman of this city, as agents for the
Garden City Billiard Table company of
Chicago. As early as last December
Flaisig made his first move toward leav
ing the city and his creditors, by attempt
ing during his partner's absence to dis
pose of their goods for cash. Flaisig's
proceedings did not excite suspicion un
til early in May. Bauman was absent
and Flaisig seized the opportunity
to dispose of the stock and make his de
parture. The company got wind of the
trouble and sent out an agent, who ar
rived the very day Flaisig left. Aa ex
amination showed that Flaisig made a
clean sweep of everything of value: and
raised money on it, and borrowed
money on fictitious securities. Since
that time drafts on himself, ranging all
the way from $50 to $200, have beencom
ing in from towns along bis route east,
the last being from, Helena, Mont. The
Garden City company is out about
$1000. The agent says Flaisig left his
young wife practically penniless.
Four years ago Flaisig was
traveling" for the Brunswick-
Balke-Callender company, making
J3t. Joe his headquarters, and wa* dis
charged for loose business methods. He
then went into business in Salt Lake
City, and wound up with a large crop of
lawsuits. After this he represented a
Cincinnati firm, and threw their affairs
into confusion by misrepresentations,
causing them immense losses. He was
discharged by them, and then engaged
in his laat venture. Banman, his last
partner, is practically ruined, and sev»

ARREST! N(i A TERROR.
A Florida Marshal Conducts a Fool
'Stakke, Fla., May 31.—A terrible
tragedy occurred near this city late laat
night, by which D. W. Alvarez, city
marshal, and Prince Albert (colored)
lost their lives. Prince had accidentally
learned the hiding place of a negro
desperado named Murray, who was sup
posed to be the man who shot aud kill
ed Deputy Sheriff Robinson, two weeks
ago. Prince told it to Marshal Alvarez,
who made up a posse- of five men, arm
ed with Winchesters, and rode to the
cabin of a negro named Frank
Adams, about three miles from
here. The posse surrounded the house
and Prince went inside, unarmed, to
arrest Murray; who resisted and shot
Prince dead. Alvarez and his men
opened fire on Murray, who stood on
the porch. He returned it without
anyone being hurt. Finally Alvarez
and bis men exhausted their cartridges.
The marshal agreed to stand guard
aljne while the posse returned to town
to get more men and a supply of ammu
nition. Two hours later they returned
to the cabin and found it deserted. Al
varez was found in a corner of the yard
with a bullet hole in his head, dead.

Paris, May 31. —The Imperialist ban
quet tonight was the first since tbe
death of Napoleon 111. General Dubar
aie, in a speech, alluded to the restored
unity of the party and predicted the
ultimate triumph of the Imperialists.
He summarized the programme in
these words': "All for the
people, by the people." Referring to
strikes, crushed by volleys of Lebels,
he declared that Napoleon HI. supported
tbe liberty of combining; gave to wOrk
ingmen permission to defend their
rights, and created co-operative socieiies
and superannuated funds. No matter in
what direction working reforms go,,
they must meet the glorious name and
large heart of Napoleon in. Prince
Victor, he declared, meant to continue
tbe work that the democratic emperor
had commenced, and would found a
reign of social brotherhood, and give a
government by the people, under a
powerful chief. The party must re
new its energetic demand for a
plebiscite, which alone was capable of
establishing a legitimate governing
power, in the absence of which anarchy
would become supreme. Other fervent
speeches were made. All the speakers
expressed full confidence as to the
