All will agree that a business house that woulc sell you a suit for $zo after at effort to get $15 would rob yot of $5 if you did not ward then off in stating these facts. We appeal to the public: "Which most deserves your patronage, the one price dealer, or the hovse which would rob you if you weuld allow it?" Whal Shall We Buy? Why, boys' clothing, of course, and if you haven't boys of your own,-present them to your more fortunate neighbor. They're so cheap-you will smile when you hear the prics.

The Charleston and the Omaha Cruising for the Steamer Itsta. No Oclal Intermatioa Obtainable in Washaington-Chillan Revolutionists Voefident ef Their Triumph. Los Aaoxeiss, Cala., May 10.-Deputy United States Marshal Anderson, on the tug Falcon, eaptured the schooner Robert and Minnie about three miles from Ban Diego yesterday afternoon. The arms said to have been on board had disappeared and are believed to have been transferred to the steamer Itata. Before the schooner was captured Supercargo Burch and Pilot Dill, who took the Itata out of San Diego har bor, weat ashore. Dill was arrested at San Pedro. Burch came to Los Angeles and was arrested by a detective, and is now in the custody of the United States marshal. Burch says he landed the arms, but declines to say at what point, bat it is supposed to have been at Catalina or San Clements. Gorge Bart, agent for the Chilian insur gents, and who had charge of the Robert and Minnie cargo, and who is now under arrest here, in an interview to-day, insisted that he had violated no law, and seems to be confident that he will be re leased. When pressed to speak of the voyage, Bart said it was nothing mysterious at all. Arms had been shipped by rail from the east and loaded in the vessel in broad daylight. When boarded by the customs officer at Cataliang the vessel's papers were at once shown The officer at first said there was something suespicious about the vessel and left a man on board, but after telegraphing to Wash ington subsequently took him off. The vessel then cruised about several days, fin ally putting into San Diego. Here Burt sighted the steamer lying in the stream which at once put about. Shortly after wards the tug, on which was the United States marshal, steamed within one hun dred yards of her, but did not hail her, much to his surprise. Thursday they discharged cargo and after taking Pilot Dill on board sailed to San Pedro where they arrived yesterday. Burt refused to say where the schooner discharg ed cargo but did not deny that the arms had been placed on one of the small islands in the San Celeminte group. Burt expressed himself confident that the Itata could not possibly have been detained by the force at the command of the United States marshal, as the crew would certainly have resisted any attempt to board her. Burt has tel egraphed the facts of his arrest to Senator Trumbull, engaged attorneys and will fight the case. Pilot Dill, in an interview to-night, says that he had no alternative but to take the Itata to sea. He says the captain put three armed Chilians on either side of him and remained himself with a revolver to see Abat he did not rust the steamer aground. Dill says the Itata was a veritable man-of war when he took her out of the harbor. The federal officials here are very reti cent and decline to say what orders, if any, have been received from Washington. The Charleston After the Itata. SAN FRANCISCO, May 10.-A morning pa per states that a telegram was received by Capt. Remy, of the Charleston, which took over three hours to translate. All visitors were then ordered ashore and the Charles ton hastily put to sea. The Charleston is provisioned and coaled for a long cruise, and instead of going outside to try the guns, as was the general supposition, it is stated that she has gone in pursuit of the Itata. If the Charleston does not catch her, the orders ae to keep on until Ad miral Brown is encountered in Chilian waters. The Itata has a start of thirty six hours and 500 miles. The Omaha Also Cruising. SAN DIEGO, Cal., May 10.-The United States man-of-war Omaha steamed out of the harbor yesterday and after passing the Heads stood out to sea in a southwesterly course. Com nder Cromwell received a mass of corres ondence in cipher from the navy department and, it is understood, has instructions to cruise around Coroado isl and San Clements to And out, if possible, where the iata is and to pick her up if sighted. SECRECY IN WASHINGTON. Nothing Given Out Regarding the Orders of the Charleston. WASHINGTON, May 10.-While there are no new developments regarding the revorted issuance of orders to the cruiser Charleston and the men-of-war composing the south Pacific squadron to go after and seize the insurgent vessel Itata, which is now sup posed to be on her way to Chili with arms taken from the schooner Robert and Min nie, it is believed that orders have been sent to Admiral Brown, commanding the Pacific station, and to Admiral McCann, commanding the ships of the south Pacific station, to capture the Iata, by force if necessary, and take her to the first Ameri can part. The greatest air of secrecy sur rounds the sifrir and to-night it is utterly impossible to learn that any orders of any nature regarding the Itata have been issued by the navy department or would be issued. Secretary Tracy left the city yes terday on the Dispatch, in company with Comodore Folger to inspect the new naval proving ground down the Potomac and has not yet returned. At his house it was said he had probably continued his trip to Fort Monroe or gone down the Cheepeake to stay over Sunday. He left word that he would not return until noon tomorrow. Commo dore Ramsey, chief of the bureau of navi gation and who issues all orders directing the movements of the ships of the navy, was seen to-night, but declined to say any thing on the subject. There is the strong est reasons for believing that the orders weio issued yesterday before Meoretaiv Tracy left the department and that the Charleston is on her way south after the ltate. Commodore Itamsey said to-night he had recolved an unoficial dispatch this morning from San Francisco saying the Charleston had gone to sea to test her gune, but had not returned, its has been stated. Orders were issued some time ago by the navy de partment for the'Charleston to go to sea for the purpose of giving her eight-inch rifles a trial in tiring while the ship executed car taii maneuvers, hilt whether the orders were further suppletmented by sealed orders cannot hti learned. Assistant Secretary of the Navy Seeley has been absent from the department since Thursday, and when seen to-night he also declined to say anything that could throw any light whatever on the subject. Seeley 1aid he was not fully in formed as to what had transpired at the department during his absence and was not in i position to any anything in the absence of the secretary, who would return to-airr row. lIe also dealined to afnrm or deny that any orders had been issued by the de partment in consequence of tho sudden departure of the liata. Naval olliOers in Washington who ares coneresant with the coast of lower Califor ali say it is likely the schooner Robert and Minnie may have deposited the rides in tended for the Chiliens on some one of the small outlying islands near the coast and that the Rata procured them there instead of taking chances of sighting the schooner at sea, as thie is the most practi cable scheme, and, moreover, would not lead to susploion by the United Stales sauthorities, as would be the case should the schooner be seen lying off the coast. The Itata is an from screw propeller ship of 1,200 tons, and was built in England in 1878. She has compound engines of antiquated make, and is not probably capable of steam ing more than nine or ten knots an hour. She was formerly owned and operated by the Chilian steam navigation company, and how she came into the bands of the insur gents is not known here, unless she was seized by them at the beginning of the in surrection. The United States vessels in Chilian waters are the Baltimore and the flagship Pensacola, with Admiral McCann in command. The San FrlA oisco, when list heard from, had left Peru, and will likely join the Baltimore and Pensacola early this week. With the Charleston the admiral will have under his command three of the finest ships of the new navy, besides the Pensacola, which is the best of the wooden clase in service. With these four ships it is not anticipated by naval ofilcers that much opposition wonad be met with should the United Slates see fit to capture the Itata, even should she be reinforced by the best ships of the insurgents. CONFIDENT OF VICTORY. The Chillan Congressional Learners Certain That Balenaceda Must Fall. PARIS, May 10.-The Chilian eongression al leaders here deny that the failure of peace negotiations were due to thedemands of the congressional party. Their advices state that President Balmaceda, after of feriag to treat, changed his mind upon hearing of the sinking of the war ship Blanco Enoalada and made the publicity given to the proposals of the congressional party an excuse for rupturing the negotia tions. The leaders of the anti government party say their losses on sea will not affect their final victory. The congressional party according to the same authority, possess an organized army which is about to march on Santiago. Even if the troops be confined to a threatening inaction, Balmaceda must surrender within three months because of the collapse of resources. The $15,000,000 reserve which he held prior to the insur rection is exhausted, and he has no source of revenue. Fifty steamers at Valparaiso, laden with coal, which were detained by or ncr of Balmaceda, have been released un der pressure from foreign powers. They are now trading at posts held by the con gressional party, These vessels will load with nitrates, the duty on which will'bring the insurgents a large sum, Although Godoy failed to raise a loan in Europe, the agent of the congressional party has been promised assistance here. DOING COLORADO. The President Addresses a Sunday School Meeting. GLENWOOD SrINGos, Colo., May 12.-The train bearing the presidential party arrived here at 4 o'clock this morning. About 8 o'clock, a committee from Denver, includ ing Governor Routt, ex-Senator Hill, Mayor Rogers and others waited on the party and assured them a cordial greeting at that city. There were no formalities. Soon afterward the visitors were welcomed formally by Mayor Rogers, of Glenwood Springs, and a committee and escorted in carriages to the Glenwood hotel, where breakfast was partaken of. The president and Postmaster General Wanamaker afterwards attended divine service at the First Presbyterian church. During the afternoon the president received a delegation from Leadville, Aspen, Col orado Springs and elsewhere. The delega tion from Aspen presented him with an ele gint souvenir, a beautiful plush case con taining, in letters of sterling wire silver, the words, "Free coinage-Aspen silver Colorado honest money." A children's mass meeting was held at the opera house this afternoon in honor of the visitors and was attended by an im mense crowd. The president and the post master-general made short addressee. In his speech the president said this govern ment was instituted by wise men; men of broad views. It was based on the idea of the equal rights of men; it ab solutely rejects class distinction and insists that men should be judged by their behavior. "That is a good rule," he said. "Ihboe who are law-abiding and well-disposed; those who pursue their voca tions lawfully and with one respect to the rights of others are true American citizens. I am glad to know that the life of our insti tutions is so deeply imbedded in your hearts. It has been a most delightful and cheering thing to me to see that the starry banner, the same old flag that was carried amid the smoke of battle, is in the hands of such children." In conclusion, the president said: "Men should have one free day in which to think of their families, of themselves, of things that are not material but are spiritual. I desire to express my sincere and earnest heart thanks to you all for your kindness. giving you in return simply a pledge that 1 will in all things keep in mind what seems to me to be the true interests of our people. I have no thought of sections, no thought upon any of these great public questions that does not embrace the rights and inter ests of all our people and alil our states. I believe we shall find a common interest and safe ground upon all these great ques tions and by moderating our own views and making reasonable and just concesisons we shall find them all settled wiraly and in the interest of the people." After consultation with the railroad offi cials, it was decided to take the party to a quieter spot and accordingly at sri otclork the train left for Gypsum, twenty-feuri miles from here, where it was ciketracked. It will leave fo~r Leadvilleat two o'clock 10 morrow morning. ONLY ONE SURVIVOR. Out of Fifty-SIx Who Started Out From Tacoma on April 01.

SLICED AND SEHEADED, A Woman's Execution in China for the Murder of Her Husband. The Imperial Tomb of the Minga not In Condition for Royalty. A Body Buried Twelve Tears Is Turned to Stone- Other News of the Orlent. SAN FRANrIsCO, May 10.-Pacific mail ad vices from Hong Hong anctYokohama sany Ma Pi-yao, the governor of Knangei, China, reports in a lengthy memorial to the Throne, a case of triple mnurder committed by a woman in P'o-pel Heiep. The woman, whose maiden name is Chpo, was married last autumn into a famil named Wang, consisting of a father and three eons, whc gain their livelihood by tilling the soil. She objected to their poverty when het parents made the mateh. When she en tered into the Wang family she always re fused to work. On several occasions bes husband, Wang Jeh-chang, reproved her for her idleness, and more then once he ad ministered something stronger than kind words. When her husband scolded or beat her, she generally ran away to her mother. One day she stole four hundred cash from her husband's brother, which on being discovered caused her husband to feel disgraced among the peopla. On this co oasion, he gave her a sound thrashing which eventually cost him his life. From this date onward, the woman used to wan der nlone on the hille seeking for poisonone herbs. An old woman named Huang in formed her of a certain plant which is a violent poison. Of this, therefore, she gathered a large quantity and boiled it down to an essence, which she mixed with some vegetables, which she prepared for the noon meal of the family, when they re turned from the fields. Her husband, his father and brother sat first at the table. No sooner had they finished their meal than they were all seized with internal pains. The other members of the family, alarmed by the cries of pain, assembled on the scene. The woman, knowing the severe action of her poison, had gone to her next door neighbor on a pretended er rand; uppn her return, she assumed innocence and asked what was the matter. The doctors, on being sum moned, pronounced the case hopeless, and the sufferers died about three o'clock the following day. The rest of the family ens peated Wang Joh-chang's wife of being the murdereas. The case was reported to the magistrate, Ku Sae-ohang, who held an in quest and found the verdict: noieoning. 'ihc family delivered the woman to the maalattate, who held a Itt,. trial, and owing to the complexty of the laws bear ing on it lie referred the case to the Pro vincial Judge Te'ai, who after a patient in vestigation, confirmed the verdict of wilful murder, and sentenced the culprit to death by the slicing process. The murderess was duly executed according to the sentence of the Provincial Judge 'Js'ai, but as the law requires that the murderer of a husband and brother be beheaded. the woman was beheaded as well as sliced. Outside the Taiping gate of Nanking are the imperial tombs of the Ming dynasty. The site in a very large one and was once covered with palaces and other costly buildings. When the present dynasty took possession of Nanking. the place was kept strictly up. Every article, even to the brick, and tiles, were preserved. Repairs were occasionally made, and the tombs were often visited by tourists who wished to examine the style of the Ming dynasty, by scholars and by lovers of antiquity. For over 200 years not a human hand ever did sacrilege within the presincts of the walls that surrounded s'a sacred a place. But at last the rebels caine. In their ravages nothing was held sacred and nothing was spaied. The tombs suffered terribly. The palaces and the buildings were burned to the ground. Even the walls were thrown down, and only heaps of bricks remained. Only the immovable stone images of men and horses are left in solitary silerec to guard the remains of emperors wto once reigned all over China. The travelier on this road now sees only runu and devasta tion. Pending the czareveob's viat the acting viceroy intended to put the place into its former grandeur and magniticence, as the Russian heir apparent might wish to see the tombs. An expectant taotai and a general were despatched to examine, sur yev and report as to the time and mosey needed. They made up two plans with sketlhes for the palace and buildings. One was to restore the place entirely on a meg nificent basis, which would cost about 1.000,000 taels. The other was to make Rone repairo simply, which cannot be done for less than a lakh or so of money. But in either case time was insutlicient. The viceroy expressed much regret, and the Ming tombs will have to wait for snother visit of some imperial or royal peraonage before having pomething done to them. The stories hose Europe and America about the bodies of buried people turned into marble in their graves. tind a parallel in Japan. In the Saga Prefecture there lives one Stusyoshi Kumakiohi, a mer chant., whose grandfather tobei, born in the year 1806, died in 1C78. and was duly interred, the corpae being placed in a pine wood coffin one inch th ek. On the lrit of last month it became necessary, for some unexplained reason, to remove the body to another place. The grave wis opened for that purpose, when it was found that about one-half of the cosfin had beei decayed from inmmersion in water that had drained into the grave. A part of the corpse thus x posved looked curi outly white and sndeoayid and felt ets hard as stone. The exhuming folks, much astonished, removed the lid of thIo crilin-presuatably a tab in which the corpse had beat placed sitting, after the ordinery Jlapineee fashion--and saw old iobei just us te had iipeared twelve years previously, the day after tuis death i a chistpler of ieads about his steck. unti his bol.y perfectly inttaut, exeet that it. hid ieritd to elloie, tsid esiiiied as though cut tuit of solidilled liase. After long woider uset, tie removal of the corpse was pro creded with, but ere it. could be traeis.orted ' to hel new burial ground, crowds of ieople assenlubled to witness tie slratige, spectacl", ande rovoeshi found it expedient to give the neighbors a few dieys to satisfy their curiosity before io-into ring the petrhiled body. tionio of thste who ca+.ue to look are I said to have worshipped li if in the ttla of, a eeirneulous muenfestatiin. From the waist downwaisl the eorpst was blacksseues by the aebion of water ii the grave, but the upper part Ra. quite white. ltnst yeara deieuty from the burenu of the city,police of 1'atkiine mistook an tune cent nsult for a thief, and using torture to ext s e a iotifesiion eaused tli death. The tatler wAe brought by the victim's iirtaily to the notete of the higher authorities, who tied the' deputy looked in to await ase ix amiesisation. When II. IX. Shea took over the. sealt of the viceregal oti.e the affair was presented to bne for dreisosn. il. IL. ordered the deputy to be cashiered, stripped bies of all his rank by memorrtabiing the threas on the otleuse and handed hein over to district magistrate for trial as a common subject. The name of the deputy is Uhun. lie Is a scion of one of the highest families of Hunan, and is the son-in-law of thero. ernor general of Kanel and Shensi. With all influence and high standing, nothing can save him from the full penalties of the law if the charge asainst him is proved. Outside the Waskin ate of the city of Wuchang, Chine. is a bill. On top of the hill there Is a temple in which live three monks, one cook and a pedagogue, who makes a precarious livelihood by teaching village urchins. A few nights ago, a band of robbers entered the temple and took away everything of value. The monks and cook were thrown into a closet and looked in, while the poor schoolmaster was badly wounded by the robbers, who objected to having Confnulan morality dinned into their ears as they went about their evil work. It in alleged that -he piece of vertebra at the nape of the'*Eeok, ground to powder and made into an incense stick, produces a poisonous gas, when lighted, which inhaled causes insensibility, Thieves employ them to aid them in their nocturnal operations. This theory explains the outrages which oc curred in inngkiaug. of coffins being brok en into and pieces of the vertebra stolen from dead bodies. Since last winter an epidemic has been raging in Canton. People are dying in great numbers. Three persons in one household died in soccession within twen ty-four hours. Idols are being carried about the street to drive away the evil spir its who sow the seeds of infection, and re joice in the death of mortals. Apologized to Mackey. Pants, May 10.-The Galignani publishes the decision of the Paris court condemning it for libelling J. W. Mackey apropos of the Bonynca trouble. The paper accompanies its retraction with an expression of regret for the unfair statement which aupeared in its columns. France Gainleg on Germany. LONDow, May 10.-The census in France shows an increase in population of 1,080,000 yearly as compared with an increase of 480,000 yearly in Germany. FOR A DEPLETED TREASURY. Queen Bees to Be Taxed When They Have No Pedligrees. WASHINGTON, May 10.-Some of the recent decisions of the treasury department offi cers on questions relative to the interpreta tion of the McKinley tariff law indicate that the authorities are fully aware of the depleted condition of the treasury and pro pose to get every dollar possible out of the paragraphs of that law. It is charitable to suppose that nothing but an urgent necessity for an increase of revenue could be responsible for the deci sion that queen bees, imported for breeding purposes. must pay a duty of 20 per cent. ad valorem, as "live animals not specially pro vided for" in the act, because, in order to come in free, these "animals" must be "duly registered in the book of record as tablished for that breed," and be accompa nied by a certificate of such record and of the pedigree of such animals. Heretofore customs officers have not re quired the importers of queen bees to pro duce the pedierees of the "animals': and have failed to colleet duty upon them. Hereafter a 20 per cent. tax will be levied upon the queen bees, and thus the govern ment will get a little more income with which to meet the demands of the billion congress. Another decision calculated to swell the receipts from the customs taxes is that inst made by the treasury department to the effect that the Girls High school of Brooklyn is not an insti tution established for the encouragement of the arts and sciences. Under this deci sion certain photographs imported for per manent exhibition at that school must pay a tax of 25 per cent. advalorem for the ben efit of the depleted treasury. Had the Girls' High school been an institution for the encouragement of science, or art, or in dustry, the photographs would have been admitted free, and Secretary Foster would have had just so much less money with which to mxet the obligations of the gov ernment. WANT THE CONSUL RECALLED. Citizens or New Orleans Worked Up Over a Statement of Signor Corte. New ORLEANS, May 10.-On the 7th inst. Signor Corte, the Italian 'consul in this city, addressed a communication to Fore man Chaffee. of the grand jury, charging among other things, "that an extra judicial body had been appointed by the mayor from the beginning, premediated for a political purpose, the killing of prisoners." This statement has given the mayor great offense, the extra judicial body to which reference is made being the committee of fifty appointed by his honor immediately after the killing of Chief Henessey. That they should be characterized as a murder ous body for political purposes had oc casioned great indignation. The commit tee have commenced preparation of a re port which will give in detail their connec tion with the matter. This will be sub mitted to the mayor and council on Tues day and on the basis of the report the mayor will take the necessary action lead ing to the recall of the Italian consul. A Pension Fund of Their Own. WAsunioroe, May 10.-The Sunday Her. ald says a movement is on foot in the vari ous departments of the government located in this city to establish what might be termed a comparative pension scheme for the benetit of those clerks who, through advanced age or physical disability in curred by their service, become unable to attend to their duties. By a fund estab lished through a small monthly deduction made from the salary of each clerk, those sick or eged will receive a pension during ins time of their disability, or for life when regularly retired by the authorized board. The number of clerks of advanced age who tire retained in the deoartments simply be cause of their faithful service for many years is very large. With a pension these could be retired with the result of a num ber of promotions all along the line. A itonaway Train and a Mishap. 'riumitume.

Campbell Bros. The Ht. Rev. L. B. Brondel, first Catholie bishop of Montana, recently lecture on his visit to Rome and the Holy Land. The lecture took Place in the Catholic church. Protestants as well as Catholics heard it, but the crowd was so great that many were unable to gain admittance. The Protest ants were so pleased and so many of their members were unable to be present that the bishop, at the request of some proini nent Protestants, graionusly consented to lecture for the whole community at the rink, which is the most spacious auditorium of the city. At 8:80 o. in. all the seats were filled by the beet citizens. The bishop, accompsanie by the Rev. Father Coopman and the prin cipal bankers, physicians and lawyers. William Harmon, J. B. Jordan, Senator Redd, Dr. Fish and the Hon. Charles B. Middleton appeared on the rostrum. Mr. Middleton in a most happy and eloquent address introduced the bishop who ay. peared in canonical robes and held his audience interested for more than two hours in the recital of his travels to and through the Holy Land. His references to "Christian charity towards mankind of every description" were eloquent and mag. netic. The pope's solicitous inquiries, kindly wikbes and blessings to all Montan., tans were described with such a pathos and beauty as to satisfy all that Bishop Brondel is not only a most eloquent divine bat & grand American citizen.

The Northern Pacifil Takes Possessien of 160 Acres an the West tide. Mr. C. W. Cannon has had his land jump. ed so often that he has become used to its it did not surprise him very much yester day morning when he heard that 160 sares of very valuable ground on the west side had been fenced in by a gang of men in the employ of the Northern Pacific Railroad company. While Mr. Cannon was at the Montana club last night about 11 o'clock Mr. Thomas Cooney, chief land examiner for the Northern Pacillo in Montana march. ad at the head of about fifty men equipD with picks and shovels. The proceajion started from the Northern Pacific depot and followed the steam motor track until a spot was reached a short distance beyond the residence of Mr. Frank L. Sizer. A gentleman who noticed the movements of the men found Mr. Cannon at the club and caked ift he had heard any. thing about his land being jumped. He said he had not. Across the table from him were F. M. Dudley and J. U. Handers, two attorneys of the road. They said noth ing. At midnight Cooney had his men at work digging poet holes on the boundary lines of the 110 acres and at seven o'clock yesterday morning posts were in position all around the tract and a siagle line of barb wire nailed to the posts thus enclesing the entire piece of land to which Mr. Can non received a government mineral patent eleven years ago. Mayor Kleinschmidt and Marshal tims went out to the place during the forenoon and found everything quiet. A shack had been erected in one corner of the tract and here some of the men were resting. At the request of the mayor Mr. Cooney cut the wires where they ran across Hauser boulevard and the steam motor line. During the afternoon the agent of the railroad com pany had his men digging post holes on both sides of the boulevard where it runs throngh the 100 acres. To-day three more lines of barbed wire will be attached to te posts, which will complete the fence. Mr, Cannon went out on the ground yesterday morning where he mnet Mr. Coonsy ana Messrs. Dudley and George F. Shelton. at torners for the road. Mr. Cannon quietly served notice on them to cease operatious but no attention was paid to his rweonest lie walked about for a while, looked into the shack and then returned to the city. He was surprised, lie said, that a great @o0 poratioi should adopt such methods in its tight against him. "It resembles the work of road agents." he said. Mr. Cooneysaid he was ordered by his company to take possession of the land and was merely obeying orders. He said action taken by his company was in lIne with the opinion of Judge Knowles, rea dered a short time ago in a case brought by the railroad company ageilrt Mr. (Han non to recover 1E0 acres on the east side, known as the C. W. Cannon addition. JI was held that the company should first be in lissession before it could proceed in the United States court to establish its title to the land, which it claims was granted tel by cong ress. The tract on the east ide eatitiated to be worth $110,0t0), and t1 acres on the west side must be worth eon. sitlerable more. No one is living on the e side tract, although Mr. Cannon has posed of a few lots there. When how he proposed to meet this move s the corporation, he replied that he rest on his government title.
