The candidate of the opposition was Senor Rayes. It was reported that Senor Errazurez expended more than $400,000 in his campaign. Senor Rayes, on the other hand announced that he would not spend one cent. Before the election Rayes issued an address to the electors, in which he said that what he had amassed he should save for his chil dren. He said that he was unalterably opposed to wasting: money to satisfy the personal vanity involved in a de sire in become President. He announc ed that he objected to the nse of large sums ot money m the political campaign, because if the practice continued only wealthy men could hope to obtain the higher offices. The election was -very close and the result will probably depend upon the rretnrns received and the members elect ed from some of the most remote prov inces of Chile. On account of the close ness of the vote it is feared that a revolution may be attempted, no matter which candidate is triumphant. There is little talk of a third or compromise candidate. . : : 'P1 SAW CRACK PLAYERS. S. G. wilder Tells of Splendid Games of Tennis at Xewport, B. L Eidiii Cosiest Berween rel aai Wreaa. Soae Soasi Pointers For Hoaolala PUyers to FoOow. In a letter from Samuel G. Wilder dated from Xewport, R. L, and received recently were remarks bearing on tennis which will prove of great interest to players here since it gives an insight into the respective games of the Eastern cracks. Following are a few extracts: "Mrs. Wilder. Jack Atkinson and myself are staying at the Aquidheck hotel. The "Casino which Is a large dnb. is about a five minutes walk away from the hotel. It is very large and a great many people here belong. Upon the grounds are twelve of the finest tennis courts It has ever been my fortune to see. They are turf and as. smooth as a blUard table. The grass is Terr short and yon can see the clay A steam roller is used to keep these coons in such fine condition and they are marked by a machine once every day. The lines are 24 inches wide. I sawKeeI and Wrenii plzy day and I declare they did play ten- nis tor 2u teat was iau. u ine nrst sec Neel bz& Wrenn 5 to 2, but he lost his grip, Wreaa braced and won the set. The second was 11 to 12 in favor of Wrern who won by simply tiring oet his opponent. "Both players advanced and retreated together. The service was easy and the runs up to the net frequent, dermg which times there was swift ToBeyiEg back and forth, Xeel was at the serrice line a great deal and it was rery hard work for Wrenn to pass him. Keel wears glasses and has a handkerchief tied arennd his head while playing, like George Carter at faonse. In the games between these two players I natie&i fhat the server said ncthing, bat stood ready until his opponent codded his head when he began serrfte. In all the games there was Tery little swift serrice, bat a lot c lobafng. ' "Xeel itaadz to receive a ball in the backhand position, bat drops bis thumb down to the forehand position if the tali comes as. biz -right. "Wrenrj is left 'cznied, bat he can play like a breeze. He will play Larced vcnicrrow. "Hover is on the conns erery day. They say he has a sore wrist, but I hare seea tins psr up a very ztiff game with Campbell who by the W27 Jj oat diOJTS. "It is TttZGT&i here that there are s BEACH. mile across town, widening as it three or four men in Newport who can beat Hovey. "While in Newport Mr. and Mrs. S. G. Wilder and Jack Atkinson were the guests of Mr. McCaleb who was here several months ago." NOXIOUS PLANTS. , What R. L. Stevenson Said of Samoa's Deadly Enemj People who understand the serious loss which has been caused the fanners of Oregon by the introduction of the wild oat ftom California, the "corn flower," "bachelor button," or French pink, and other noxious plants, will be interested in reading what Robert Louis Stevenson, the celebrated writer. whose pen threw a glorified halo of word painting around every subject it touched, wrote in regard to the "sensitive plant" in the Samoan islands, where it Is called tuituL" Mr. Stevenson, it will be remebered, settled on an elevated location above Apia, where the climate was found to be best adapted to his health, and where he built a home, cleared a tract of land, wrote a number of his books and stories, and finally died of consumption and was buried on the summit of the moun tain. He used occasionally to work with his men at what he called "weeding," but which was really clearing his ground of trees, roots, weeds, etc, and preparing it for cultivation. He said that in going around to look over the work that had been done, he found the "tuitui" springing up at the heels of the men clearing the ground. The sensitive plant is a low plant growing m thick masses, like wild clover, which, at a distance it resembles. Persons who have crossed the isthmus- of Panama may have seen it covering the embankments along the railway. When touched by the hand or by a switch passed over it, the leaves droop as if wilted, by heat-In writing to a friend of his experience in weeding on one occasion, Mr. Stevenson says: "I found a great deal of tuitui, our deadliest enemy. A fool brought It to this island in a pot and used to lecture and sentimentalize over the tender thing. The tender thing has now taken charge of the island, and men fight it with torn hands for bread and life. A singular, wondrous thing shrinking and biting like a weasel, and clutching by its roots as a limpet clutches to a rock. "Tuitui is a truly strange beast and gives food for thought- I am nearly sure I canno be quite that even at the instant he shrivels up bis leaves he sticks his pinchers downward so as to catch the uprooting finger. One thing that takes and holds me is to see the strange variation In the propagation of alarm among these rooted beasts; at times it spreads to a radius of six inches; at times only one individual plant is frightened at a time. We knew how long It took one to recover; 'tis a sanguine creature, and was all abroad again before two minutes. It Is odd how difficult in this world it is to be armed. The double armor of this plant betrays it. In a thick tuft, where the leaves disappear, I thrust in my hand and the bite of the thorns betrays the topmost stem. In the open, again, and when I hesitate if it be clover, a touch on the leaves, and Its fine sense and retractible action betrays its identity at once. Yet it has one gift incomparable. Rome had virtue and knowledge; Rome perished. The sensitive plant has indigestible sfAs, and. It will flourish forever. I give my advice thus to a young plant-have a Htrong root, a weak stem, and an indigestible seed; so you will outlast the Eternal City and your progeny will clothe mountains, and the irascible planter wiil blaspheme In vzin. The weak point of tuitui Is that Its stem Is strong." A CURE FOR BILIOUS COLIC. RESOURCE, Screven Co Ga. I have been subject to attacks of bilious colic for several years.

Some important (business has followed Mr. Chamber lain to his retirement at saiem, .siaas. The most energetic of Cabinet cnulfl scarcely divest himself en tirely of pubjlc affairs; nor has Mr. Chamberlain attempted to make his ...... UUUIU1J lUlWKIC ,.H w u.. ....- work. His presence in the United States is expected to be associated win interviews bearing on Canadian relations to his zollverein proposals and the Pacific cable scheme. The change of Ministry in Canada has rendered it necessary to reopen the whole question of the Pacific cable. It Is doubtful whether the Commission will continue to exist. It Is still a question whether or not Mr. Chamberlain will retain the Colonial Office. On the eve of his departure for the United States it was affirmed and denied that he desired to resign hi3 present office. During the present week the balance of opinion tends to a conviction that he will not long remain at the Colonial Office. It Is not because his zollverein scheme has met with rebuff from the Colonies, nor that ho is tired ot facing South African troubles. As a tenacious fighter, ha would be more likely to stick to his post so long as any tension existed with the Transvaal. But he is and long has been dissatisfied with tho measure of support accorded him within the Cabinet In his policy of thoroughness in dealing with the Boers, and dissatisfied also with the public attacks made upon him by inspired Conservative organs. If there be-any changes in the Cabinet before Parliament resumes, Mr. Chamberlain, according to the, best Information, will vacate the Colonial Office.' Talk to Xew York Importers. NEW YORK, Sept. 6. A special to the "Herald from Danvers, Mass., says: "The Right Hon. Jos. Chamberlain was seen this afternoon at the residence ot former Secretary Wm. C. Endicott of this town. He was told that a cablegram has been received saying that his criticism of Healy was being quoted in England with ridicule. "That's nonsense," he replied. "The English are not that Eort of people. The only thing I said of Mr. Healy was that he Is the ablest Irishman ot the day. This I repeat It Is not a question worthy discussion, but a simple facL It is foolish to deny a man's ability because you do not agree with him. Mr. Healy is no friend of mine nor of the Government I disagree with him on almost, every point but yet I believe him a very able man. It is useless for the English people to deny it and compare such men as Mr Dillon with him." Are you going to visit Secretary Olney?" I asked. I am not" "Are you goingf to Canada?" No. I am not. I have bad an invitation to go to Toronto and visit the Exhibition there, but I have personal reasons for wishing to remain here during my abort stay In this country. I shall go directly back to England." "What of tbe Pacific cable?" "Well, there's been very little done abour that A email committee has been appointed, who will report at a future Bession It ia proposed to lay a cable between Canada and Australia.
