In icllcvlng you of tho arduous labors
which the present session of Parliament
have Imposed on you, 1 rejolco that I am
ablo lo eougratulato you on tho number of
Important mid useful measures which havo
resulted from your deliberation. I have
reason to hope that the authority which you
have conferred upon my government will
ciiablo them to Include an arrangement for
effccllvo steamship communication with
Europe mid Asia, whereby tho trndo and
commerce of Canada will bo widely ex
tended nnd tho trnnlc passing over her
lines of communication greatly developed.
You have again made liberal provision for
extending lho railway facilities of tho Do

provement tending to economy, and ccr
tnlnly lu the administration of that branch
of tho law.
Tho mcasuio by which tho syslcm of

somo of the embarrassments under which
tlio printers and publishers of Caiiada hare
labored for somo year past, without doing
justice to authors In this or other countries.
You hnvo piovldcd for greater cfllclcncy
nnd economy in the postul service, for
giving greater facilities for tlio settlement
of our lands lu lho Northwest Territories,
nnd for Increasing lho safeguards of life
nml property on our ships. .Many of tho

Four Hundred. Hut all their little rngo
was ineffectual. When tlio people wautcd

Nothing in this celebration has been se
lect, nothing fashionable. Even tho lull
was n hopelessly "common" affair. In
which tho properly vouched-tor society
ptoplo touched elbows with their grocor
and tho alderman from their ward.
The great mistake of tho Four Hundred
was lu selecting tho kind of Centennial
they should honor by their special patron
age. What tlicy should celebrate Is tho
centennial of tho cravat or the Invention of
the stovc-plpo hat.

Injure his prospects for n respite.
Warden Ciockcr called at tho Department
of Justice this inorningto ascertain whether
any action would bo taken as to a rcsplto or
commutation of sentenco In Colbert's ease.
A delegation tit colored people has boon
calling on lho President nnd makliur every
cndca or to havo Colbert respited and thero
was n general impression at tho Jail that the
execution would bo postponed. Colbert's
parents and his ntcco called on him this
morning ami had n long .conversation with
him. Colbert sat behind tho grating which
separates tho cell corridors from Hie
rotunda and his visitors sal on a bench on
tho other side.
His father, n gray;hcadcd colored man,
held a little book 'in his hand, and from
time to tlmu would carry his handkerchief
to lus eyes. The Interview lasted about au
hour, mid Colbert icturncd to his cell to
engage In his devotion. Although tho jail
odlclals aro willing to Indulge him In any
thing his nppctlto may crave, ho cats only
tlio usual prison fare, asklug for nothing
whatever. He nte a light breakfast, con
sisting ot hashed meat, wheat bread nnd
coffee. Notwithstanding the possibility
of a slay iu the execution or n commuta
tion of llio sentence, preparations for the
hanging have been actively going on. At
tho cud of a corridor lu the northeast cor
ner of the Jail stands the scaffold; ready
now ns It has been for years pa6t to carry
tho death sentence into execution.
From tho place whero ho stands when
talking to visitors, Colbert can look Into
the corridor through which he Is to take
his last steps on earth. Thero is enough ot
an angle, however, to shut the sea ffold
itself off from Ids view. Thcro is nothing
to bo dono.to the scaffold except to faston ii
