Oct. 11.— In regard to Sir Frederick Borden's statement at Bos ton, It is said here in official circles that, so far the British Government has" not ?" tatcd what it will do toward the estab ishment of a fast Atlantic Canadian line.

The investigation by the local United States inspectors' regarding the strike on the steamship George. W. Elder came to an abrupt end to-day. The sudden ter mination was caused by the refusal of Third Assistant Engineer Huston to tes tify as to his reason for leaving the steamer on such short notice' When he was called to the stand, he immediately refused to be sworn, and said that, act- Ing on the advice of his attorney, ha would decline to answer any questions that were put to him. His action left the board with no alternative to revoking his license, which it did at once. PORTLAND, Or.. Oct. 11.— J. P. Sulli van, C. F. McKenzie and E. B.

Order of Druids has sent a circular letter-to all of the local groves of the order "calling attention to the fact that the first meeting night in the-month of ¦ February in ; each year has \ been set apart as a memorial -¦ day, upon which each grove . should hold . service in mem ory of- those ' T -who during, the. previous twelve, months were "called from : this sphere. : He also states that Noble Grand Arch Gugllelmonl i requests each of the groves tp send a representative to Druids' Hall on.the . 25th 'inst.- for the purpose of making arrangements for a joint memo rial service, in -this city, i '-/ Druids' Memorial Day. Taylor asserts that ; while he is practi cally the Republican nominee, he : real izes that the oversight In j the j election call may technically prevent him from having his name go on the ballot as the Republican nominee. He has therefore filed ,a. petition, and will appear on . the ticket in the Independent column. .Tap pan has done likewise and the campaign is being waged with vigor. Both candi dates were opponents in the last munici pal election for City Recorder, Tappan running as the Republican nominee jj and Taylor as an independent. Taylor won. Tappan was a delegate to the late State Convention at Sacramento and was one of the firmest supporters of the candi dacy of Pardee.in the entire - Alameda County delegation. , When the nominations of . the candl 'dates were filed, a protest was \ lodged with the District Attorney against per mitting an election for such an office upon the ground that it would add an un necessary burden to the taxpayers of Alameda. The District : Attorney . has de cided-that such an, office as City Justice of the Peace exists in Alameda and: has allowed both nominations ' to go on "the official ballot The one who. Is elected will have to fight for his office, for; the City Trustees do not favor the creation of this place, and the two candidates . are running for an . office, that the voters of Alameda would abolish if they could. ¦ . • VOTERS OPPOSE OFFICE. nomination at the recent County Con vention for City Justice of the Peace and was given a certificate of "nomination. In the election call the office of City Jus tice was omitted and for this reason R. B. Tappan claimed that Taylor could not be the Republican nominee, as there was no such office before the convention for which a nomination could be made. . LAMED A. Oct. 11.— Two candl f\ dates, M. . S.. Taylor and R. B. jfc=V Tappan, each" claiming to be the *¦ Republican nominee for the place, are out for the position of City Tustice of the Peace, which office the district Attorney holds exists now in Al meda, against the desires of the town -fficials and many voters. There has ever been such a local-official, the duties .hat would come within the jurisdiction •f that magistrate being performed, as it present, by the City Recorder. - If Is he difference in the salaries paid that -Hakes the office of City Justice of the Peace more attractive than that of City Recorder. The single change of title from City Recorder to City Justice means an Increase from $960 a year to $2000. The office of City Recorder is a consti tutional creation and cannot be abolished by the Board of City Trustees, although hat body has the power to fix the salary and may reduce the same to a nominal sum and will probably do so in case the municipality has to maintain a City Jus tice of the Peace. . • ¦ - . By section 103 of the Code of Civil Pro cedure, in force In 1880, it was provided that in every city having more than 10,000 inhabitants there should be one City Justice of the Peace. ; In 1890, the census having shown that' Alameda had more than 10,000 residents, R. B. Tappan ran for the office and was declared elect ed. As no nomination had been regularly made or call issued for the election of a City Justice of the Peace/ Tappan' s right to the office was denied. He Bued the city of Alameda and lost the case on a technicality. In 1891 an amendment was passed by the State Leg islature raising the minimum of popula tion of a city in which it was required to have a City Justice of the : Peace to 15, 0001 E. K. . Taylor, then City Attorney, was mainly instrumental in securing the passage of an amendment. Now that Al ameda. has a population of nearly 18.000 it is generally conceded that the office of City Justice of the j Peace exists and can te legally occupied. M. S.
