With Snow , Rain , Slush and Mud
Norfolk Will Badly Need Pavement
Norfolk has been particularly free fiom muddy streets this
summer , owing to lack of rain. But with the snow of winter , the
slush of spring and the normal rainfall of summer , this city is used
to having streets kneedecp in mud n good portion of an average
Everybody realizes the importance to Norfolk , from every view
point , of providing a paved street to the new Third street depot , so
that visitors won't have to ride through a mire for an hour before
getting up town. Lack of pavement In muddy weather works very
serious Injury to Norfolk In every way. It keeps people away from
town and makes them knock when they have to come. It's a big
black eye.
We've wasted ono entire summer this year , not laying a single
paving brick. Are wo going to shiftlessly repeat that performance
next year ? If we're not , NOW'S the time to get the paving petitions
up to the council , so that work can start In early spring.
Every summer Norfolk loses , without adding paved streets ,
keeps the town back. And If we're ever to pave ( which everybody
knows we are ) why not do It , and begin getting the benefit of it ?

Discussing the situation last night
the premier said that the government
would respect the right of the work
ing men to strike so long as they
pursued lawful methods but at the
.same time he made it clear that If the
employes of the public services quit
work without having given the notice
required by law summary measures
would bo taken to end the move

be , ho said , the signal for troops to
use their arms without hesitation.

gold shipments are thoroughly under
way. Curiously enough money re
mains remarkably cheap and plentiful
and the Bank of England stock of
bullion stands near $215,000,000 but a
measure of protection Is considered
necessary In view of the continental
political situation and the advanced
bank rates at Berlin , Belgium , Sweden
and Denmark with early rises possible
at Vienna and Paris.
The London discount dealers' pro
gress forced the private rates over
the bank's minimum of 3 percent ,
causing an Inundation of bills to the
Bank of England , another factor in
the addition of higher minimum.
Brussels , Sept. 21. The rate of dis

1. Abe Attell , the featherweight
hamplon , tried the Impossible last
light by conceding about thirteen
> ounds In weight to the English light
veight , Matt Wells , at Madison
Square Garden. Wells was as clever

It was a fast , clean and clever ex-
ilbltlou of boxing with none of the
bloody features of the Flynn-Morrls
contest at the same ring here last
The fight was a handicap match
and Attell Is given credit for the
jame stand he made against his heav

St. Petersburg , Sept. 21. It is re-
orted that the most beautiful face

tarred by command of the czar , in
r.vdor ihat tk.e Grand -Duke Michael ,
ho czar's only brother , might be re-
tored to the honors which he for-
eited through his infatuation for the
The story is replete with romance ,
itrlguo and statecraft in which the
; zar , the grand duke" and the beauti-
ul Ekatarlna , a girl of high social
landing but not of the royal blood ,
lay the principal roles. When the
rand duke's infatuation with Ekat-
rina first became known to the czar
he was very much incensed. Soon
fterward Ekatarina married a rich
loscow banker , Mamontoff , and the
.ffalr with Michael passed from the
ndulgent brother to the province of
he holy synod , chief authority of the
irthodox church. Mamontoff Is the
ichest man in Moscow , the town of
Russian millionaires , where Ekatar-
na's parents likewise are leaders In
Mamontoff quickly developed the
ealous temperament of an Othello ,
ind watched his wife like a Turk.
iovo making between Michael and
Ekatarlna was reduced to the ex
change of burning letters , but when
pies delivered one of the duke's mis
sives to the banker , he gave an ex
plosion of wrath that startled Mos
cow society.
Mamontoff was not only jealous ,
but brutal. Winding Ekatarina's
blond tresses around his arm , he drag-
; ed her on the floor of her boudoir ,
demanding all letters that the grand
duke bad sent her before and after
ho marriage. When he got them , aft
er many denials , attended by tears
and protestations , he "beat her like
a mujik , " and threw her out of doors.
The matter was taken to the czar and
Batched up. One night , however ,
Mamontoff returned unexpectedly and
found the grand duke in his wife's
boudoir. He assailed his imperial
liighness with bitter words.
Taking Ekatarina In his arms
Michael ran into the street , followed
by the banker.
'I will hitch her naked to a carl
and lash her through the streets of
Moscow , according to the old cus
torn , " shouted Mamontoff.
"You will do nothing of the kind
replied the grand duke , "and the holy
synod will give you a divorce. "
And a divorce the banker obtained
Michael then wed Ekatarlna morgan
ntlcnlly. This coming to the czar's
knowledge , the girl was sent to Hol >
Trinity cloister. Her lovely hair , eye
brows and eyelashes were cut off , and
the duke was sent to Orel.

Montreal , Sept. 21. Canada is holdIng -

tory , to register its decision as to
whether the government and recipro
city are to be endorsed or defeated.
In all the ten provinces polling
booths were opened at 9 o'clock and
will close at 5 o'clock this afternoon.
The Australian ballot system prevails
throughout the dominion. Even in the
smallest constituencies an hour will
be required for the counting of the
votes , so no result will be known before -
fore G o'clock. As many ridings are
very largo and their population is
widely scattered , results in them will
not be learned until after midnight.
However , unless the decision is very
close , enough constituencies probably
will have been heard from before 10
o'clock to indicate accurately the
general result.
Today's vote is being taken In 214
of the 221 constituencies. Seven are
not voting. Three of these counties
gave their decision on nomination day
a week ago , returning government sup
porters by acclamation. In the re
maining four , owing to wilderness con
ditions which retard official election ,
voting has been deferred two weeks.
When the polls were opened this
morning there were crowds at every
booth waiting to vote. Both sides
continue to express confidence.
