RICHMOND, Va., Oct. 81.— The tor- I pedo-bcat Shubrick was launched here to-day In the presence of President McKinley, many mem . b<>rs of his Cabinet, Governor Tyler ' of Virginia and an immense out | pouring of people. The demonstration was marred in some of its features by a heavy rainstorm. The civic carnival i parade had to be abandoned until to-mor- j I row owing to the weather, and the deco- J rations of the buildings presented a be draggled and woe-begone appearance. : Bui the people, residents as well as i visitors from other Virginia cities and J \ points outside, who came to witness the . j launching and see the President, were ; j enthusiastic.

SEATTLE, Oct. 31 —After a cruise in Alaskan waters as far north as Point Barrow, the United States revenue cutter Bear, Captain Jarvis, returned to Seattle to-day. She had sixty odd sick and desti tute prospectors, gathered up at various northland points. At St. Michaels, which point she left October 8. the Bear took aboard ten United States prisoners, five of whom are accused of murder, and con veyed them to the United States peni tentiary at Sitka. Fifteen men who had been ordered out of Cape Nome by the local authorities were also brought to this city on the Bear.^They are accused of no particular offense other than tljat they had no visible means of support and were, It is said, regarded by the Cape Nome officials as desperate men. The Bear railed at St. George Island, on the coast of which the steamer Laurada lies beached. Captain Jarvis says the Laurada's upper works are nearly all gone, and ho thinks it improbable that the vessel can be saved in anything like her entirety.

The people are doing j business on both principles and should be let encouraged rather than hindered In their efforts to increase the trade of the coun try and find new and profitable markets for their products. Manufacturing was never so active and so universally enjoyed throughout all the States.. Work was never so abundant. The transportation companies were never so taxed- to handle the freight offered by the people for distribution. The home and for eign markets contribute to our prosperity. Happily the latter has increased without any diminution of the former. Your locomotives go to Russia, the witch cases from my little city of Canton to Geneva, the bridges of Phil adelphia span the Nile and the products of the American farm and factory are carried upon every sea and find welcome In most of the ports of the world. In what respect would we change these happy conditions, with the promises they give of the future? The business activity in every part Of the country, the better rewards to la bor, the wider markets for the yield of the soil and the shop, the increase of our ship building, not only for Government but for purposes of commerce; the enormous increase of our export trade In manufactures and agri culture the great comforts of the home and the happiness of the people, the wonderful up lifting of the business condition* of Virginia and the South and of the whole country, make I this not only an era of goodwill, but an era of j good times. It is a great pleasure to me to stand in this historic capital and to look Into the faces of my countrymen here assembled and to feel < and to know that we are all Americans, stand- Ing as one for the Government we love and mean to uphold; united for the honor of the !

Both were participated In by j Virginians and both, marked mighty epochs. in the history of the nation. The one was at York- ' town In 1781, when Cornwallls surrendered to j Washington, which was the beginning of the j end of the war with Great Britain and the ! dawning of Independence and union. The great i Virginian, page and patriot. Illustrious com- ' mander and wise statesman, installed the re public in the family of nations. It has with stood every shook In war or peace from without or within, experiencing its gravest crisis in the Civil War. The othjr. at Appomatox. was; the conclusion of that crisis and the beginning '■ of a unification now happily full and complete, resting In the good will and fraternal affection ' of one toward another of all the people. Wash ington's terms of peace with Cornwall la se cure. the ultimate union of the Colonies; those of Grant with Lee the perpetual union of the States. Both events were mighty gains for j OPENING OF THE SUISSER TRIAL Only Five Jurors Have Been Secured. Special Dispatch to The Call. SAIJXAS, Oct. 31.— The Superior Court I room was crowded all day to-day with • I resident* of Monterey County, who were i interested in the trial of George Sulsser, ; I the young man who on the night of Sep tember 18 tried to annihilate the Dolaney family, attempted to murder Constable j Allen and committed arson on the De- j | laney premises and did assassinate Sheriff Henry R. Farley. Suisser has probably I the best attorney in the county, but j nevertheless the evidence is strong and i public opinion so great that it is asserted ! that the Jury will not dare under oath to ! give other than a verdict of murder in the first degree. At 10 o'clock the case was opened and \ from that time till 5 p. m. the various at- j I torneys and the Judge battled with jurors ' i In an effort to get twelve competent and ' i unbiased men. At the time the court | closed for the day only five had been se- ; 1 cured. The people were represented by District Attorney Andreasen, Deputy I Thomas J. Rlorda'n and Thomas Renison, I while C. F. Lace? and G. A. Daugherty ! represented the defendant. | Judge Dorn was as desirous of securing ; I good jurors as the attorneys were and ' the examination was exhaustive and per tinent. Seventy-five men were summoned, : but from the present outlook a special venire will he necessary before a satis factory twelve can be secured. Suissor still retains his bravado air ; and asserts he will be cleared. The jurors : selected to-day were: W. F. Harvey. J. iJ. Hendrlckson, T. C. Herbert, D. P. I i Crawford and N. T. Landrum.

Both are common heritage. The one made the nation possible, the other made the nation Imperishable. Now no Jarring: note mars the harmony of the union. The seed of discord has no sower and no soil upon which to live. The purveyor or hata. if there be one left, is without a following. The voice which would kindle the flame of passion and prejudice Is rarely heard and no longer headed In any part of our beloved country. "Lord of the Universe Shield us and guide us; Trusting Thee always Through shadow and sun. Thou hast united us: Who shall divide us? Keep us, oh. keep us The many In one." Associated with this great commonwealth are many of the most sacred ties In our na tional life. From here came forth many of our greatest statesmen and heroes, who gave vigor and virtue and glory to the republic. For thirty-seven of the sixty-one years from 1789 to ISSO sons of Virginia occupied the Pres idential office with rare fidelity and distinc tion a period covering more than one-fourth of our national existence. What nation can have a greater heritage than such names as Washington, , Jefferson, Madison, Monroe and Marshall: their deeds inspire the old and the young. They are written in our histories. They are a part of the education of every child of the land. They enrich the school books of the country. They are cherished In every American home, and will be so long as liberty lasts and the Union endures. My countrymen, the sacred principles pro claimed In Philadelphia in 1776, advanced to glorious triumph at YorktowVi. made effective In the formation of the Federal Union in 17*7. sustained by. the, heroism of all our people In every foreign conflict, sealed in solemn cove nant at Appomattox Courthouse, sanctified by the blood of the men of the South and the North at Manila and Santiago and in Porto Rico, have lost none of their force and virtue, and the people of the United States will meet their new duties and responsibilities with un failing devotion to these principles and with unfaltering purpose to uphold and advance them. Standing near the close of the century, we can look backward with congratulations and pride, and forward Into the new century with confidence and courage. ■ The memories of the past Inspire, us to nobler effort and higher en d«ivors.;; It is for us to guard the sacred trust transmitted by our fathers ami pass it on to those who follow this Government of the free, strengthening Its principles and greatenlng Its power for .the execution of Its beneficent mission. .At the conclusion of the President's speech.

The launching: which followed was a groat -success, the boat being christened by little Carrie Shubrick of Rocky Mount, N. C, great-ftrandniece of Commodore Shubrick, with the usual formalities. It was a side launching, but the boat took the water like a duck, amid enthusiastic cheering and the tooting of steam whistles. On the christening stand were little Miss Carrie Shubrick. who christened the boat: her maids of honor, Miss Mary Curtis, Elizabeth Preston and Roberta Trigg. Dr. and Mrs. John T.

M i I ■ munication by Slgnor Marconi's wireless ' I system is to be established between five ■of the Hawaiian Islands by a company of Americans. Frederick J. Cross of the firm of Catton, Neill & Co., engineers, of Honolulu, who is now in this city, has closed a contract for an American company in Hawaii. Al- : though many engineers regarded the con nection of the five islands by cable as impracticable, because of coral reefs, on which a cable is soon covered with a ooral growth, which renders breaks frequent, and repair exceedingly difficult, the Amer- | lean company had about decided to at- j tempt it, as the needs of telegraphic com- 1 munication had grown most urgent. Then Signor Marconi's achievements were heard of and Mr. Cross was sent to this country to view the workings of his sys ten^as used by The Call and Herald dur ing the international yacht races. He found that the Marconi system would cost ' much .less and be more practicable in many ways than a cable. A regular tele- ! graph business will be done by the com pany Installing the wireless system. The distances over which communication will be established will vary from eight to six- ! ty-one miles.
