LONDON. September ?21.— The Daily
Chronicle finds great .satisfaction in an
alleged authoritative- statement from its
Washington' correspondent,' to which it
gives great importance and prominence,
that President Roosevelt is not pro-Boer,
in his sentiments, "and will maintain Pres
ident McKinley's : policy of strict neu
trality with regard. to South Africa. -..
"Therefore," says the Daily Chronicle, - ;
"any trustingto a chapter of .accidents,
so far as- the United States is concerned,
on the part of .the Boers, : . will be. doomed
to disappointment.". r - -■ 'vf'" 1 /^' ■"■'■--

Frank l^areck, Manager , 826 EAST : 'MAIN STREET,
They AVere Evidence* of Jjoyalty to
Great Britain During Tronblons
Times Preceding This. Country's
War for Independence..
: The^ telegram from I St. John, N. 8., a
few. days ago announcing that the Lion
arid Unicorn, originally belonging to the
Old State Ho use in Boston, were in that
city, .would lead the public to believe that
.the emblem at St. John was the model for
; the silver and gold animals recently
placed on the -famous old building..
Such, however, is not a. fact. The lion
.and -unicorn that adorned the, easterly
front of .the State House were taken
• down' on the evening -of July 18, 1776,;im-.
mediately after the reading'of the Decla,
, ration, of Independence, ■ and," together
with every sign .with any resemblance to
the King's arms, were burned in 'King
street. •' _ , ■
. I But . the coat of royal arms, which ror
years adorned the. Council Chamber, was
saved from the .general destruction' of
royal emblems, arid taken out of Boston,
never ,' probably to return^ when the
King's troops evacuated the town. ;
/ Among .the royalists ; who ..sailed with
'the 'British from Boston ; on .the
17th of March , 1776, were Edward Win
slow and •■ Ward Chipmari, both graduates
of ; Harvard College, "arid educated' for: the
"law. '■' •' Wlrislow was collector :.of customs
at; Boston"^ and registrar of probate of
Suffolk "county. <It was be .who- tore the
coat /of . arms from its resting-place,: and.
packing it among:his goods; : took .it -with
him " when ■he left Boston ;. for Ne w York.
After the close of the war they, settled
in New : Brunswick, : :Where they passed
.the remainder of their lives.. Both became
distinguished in that province; both were
judges 'of the 'Supreme. -Court, arid were
at" different : times acting ; governors 'of
- the ! province. • _ " ' . • '.
v The. royal arms were lost to view for.
several. years. The next we hear, of :theni
is at Halifax, N:': S., where, in: 1785,. Ed
ward -Winslbw- was .staying.-.-- ;In; January
of 'that year he wrote to his f riend," Mr"
-Chipman. saying: . "Give my old" custom

_ The arms of the house, of Hanover .were
similar from 171 ito 1801, when a change
was. introduced by the omission .' of the
Frencli-fleur.de lis and. a, consequent .re-:
ararigement, of the insignia. These: arms
are-carved in wood. The surface pf.thei
shield is convex. In the first and fourth.
Quarters, of . . the royal insignia are the
lions of England - and- fthe fleur de Jis of
France displayed quarterly. In the se
cond quarter is the lion rampant of Scot
land; :and in the .third is the harp- of
Ireland. The shield is : surrounded by,
a" badge, on ; which ; is the d motto "of the' ■
Order of the Garter, established by Ed-;
ward 111 in 1334. namely. :"Honl soit fivd'
mal y pense," and .on the. -scroll ; at .^the
