Stevensville, Feb. 1 .-(Special.)
Interest on the part of the Christian
pIeople continues to increase in the re
vi\al meeting in progress at the Meth
odist Episcopal church, south. The
meeting this week has been dedicated
largely to the church people, and a
general interest together with a
spiritual uplifting is manifest. The
members of the other churches have
attended well and taken an active
part in the services, and their min
isters have attended when it was pos
sille for them to do sio. Rev. -Mr.

Mr. Rees, of the Presbyterian church
have attlendied the meetings, and have
taken an active part in the same. Rev.
Mr. Salsman, of the Baptist church,
has not been able to attend on ac
count of ill health, but he has mani
fested his interest in the meeting by
making it possible for his people to
attend by discontinuing his prayer
meetings during the revival. It is
planned to have day services next
week, and a general effort will be
made for the conversion of sinners.
"Sin" was the subject discussed last
evening by Rev. Frank Hopkins of
Butte, who is doing the preaching.
Again he called attention to the great
ness of God, and portrayed His greatl
w\isdom, together with the folly of
sinning against Him. Great interest
was taken in the sermon, and at the
conclusion of the same all the Chris
tians met in the altar, shaking hands
with each otlher while they sang,
"Blessed Be the Tie that Binds Our
Hearts in ('hristian love." Mr. Hop

A REAL CHINOOK.
Hamilton, Feh. 15.-(Special.)
Hamilton was visited by a vigorous,
active chinook yesterday, one that
waded right through the heavy fall
of snow which was recently visited
upon this city and vicinity. The balmy
breeze melted the snow with a magic
al hand all of the day with the result
that what was left at nightfall lay
mighty c(lose to the ground. The work
ef the chinook did not stop with the
S o'clock whistle, but the melting pro
cess was continued just as diligently
through the night. This morning the
landscape was covered with water, all
that remained of the heaviest fall of
snow seen here in several years. Wihole
flocks of robins can be imagined with
consistency today. Secretary Hayden
of the chamber of commerce oiled the

constitutional guaranties. of citizens,
he has rights under this law which
must be respected."
The court points out that Castro's
case falls within the class of persons
convicted or who admit having been
convicted of a felony or other crime in
volving moral turpitude, and con
"(Congress has required in respect
to this particular class of aliens proof
of a specific kind and no other, viz:
Either a conviction in the country
where the crime was committed or an
admission by the alien. There is no
pretence of any conviction, and I
think ordinary proof is not sufficient.
Testimony of unimpeached eyewit
nesses that they had seen General
Castro kill General Paredes with his
own hand in cold blood would not only
be insufficient, but ,would be wholly
incompetent. Therefore, telegrams
passing between the state department
and its representatives at Caracas,
upon which the board relied, are no
evidence whatever to connect General
Castro with the death of General Pare
des. When examined before the spe
cial board he had the right to insist
that proof on this point be restricted
to that required by the act, viz: His
General Castro said tonight that
whatever else he might do, lie planned
to be in Washington for the inaugura
tion on March 4.
