An Impression and delineation of Andrew

London by O. Walker Child. These are his
'This hand is character! zed by it's un
usual amallnees. the peculiar development
of the finger tips, the strong firm thumb,
and the fact that the fingers are of the
same length as the palm.' The Impression
produced Is one of proportion and exact
ness. There is Uttle idealism indicated,
and none of the excesses to which many
successful business men are addicted. Kv.
erything 1a taken from a practical stand
point The eentrai line crossing the hand
Is -toter and cleaiv and '-slightly ''separated
from the line encircling the thumb, thus
showing strong Intellectual faculties, self
reliance and concentration. The fingers
are placed evenly, the first being short
and bent the fourth long and pointed. The
former Indicates an absence of 'side.' the
latter shrewdness. The. thumb ts heavy
for the alse of the hand, and shows a mas
terful will, good reasoning power, and
combined with the strong fourth finger,
ability to control and influence others. In
a word, this hand, shows the practical man,

NEW YORK. May 7 (Special Telegram.1)
William B. Northrup, a member of the
Canadian parliament from Belleville. Ont.,
in an Interview today, told of some of the
difficulties that lie In the way of the pas
sage of the reciprocity treaty in this coun
try. Mr. Northrup is a leading member of
the conservative, or opposition party, the
party which declares that reciprocity spells
annexation, and will have none of it. Sum
ming up the situation as he uvea It. in one
sentence he declared that: "Reciprocity Is
by no means out of the Canadian woods.
II Is only fair to the government to say
that they have given all the time they
possibly could under the ctrcumstances to
the question.
"But it has been only a desultory discus
sion. The real fight Is due In the next
day or two and it will probably be a
spirited conflict. I do not wish to fore
cast what my party will do In the case, in
fact, its course will not be decided until
the last moment. It Is a tremendous re
sponsibility which Is taken when supply
bills are, held up. for the party doing so
is arraigned before the public, and If the
reason for Its course is not a good one. It
is bound to Buffer defeat.

"In the present, the situation Is a
peculiar one. fir Wilfred Laurler is bound
to try to get the treaty accepted by the
present session of parliament and as he
has booked his passage to sail for England
May 12 he has only a few days In which
to accomplish his object. Now, the op
position ts bitterly opposed to the treaty
and it might mind I don't say It will
but It might hold up the supply bills and
either force the prime minister to a com
promise by which the treaty would go
over to the next session, next November, or
It might force him to appeal to the coun
trv. "Sir Wilfred is thus placed In a very un
comfortable position. On the one hand he

of the Joint assembly were marked by the
refusal of State Senator Thomas J. McCue,

Preacher Says Only Crime Is tarry
ing; Letter from Y'onngr Man to
!!V-.V', Yannjr 0rj and I wr.te-.. "
LINCOLN. May 7. Reports have reached
this city that Rev. U G. Parker, who
recently left Sterling and waa made the
victim of several attacks at the time, is
being urged by citizens of that place to
Rev. Parker, who until he assumed
chsrge of the church In the Johnson
county town, was a resident of this city.
where he still owns considerable property,
declares that the attack upon him grew
entirely out of a thoughtless act on his
part and which was nothing mors than the
carrying of a missive from a young man to
young lady In Sterling.
A delegation of Methodists from Sterling
are said to have visited the city yesterday
urging the preacher to return to his
charge. Before taking up his residence In
this city Rev. Parker had charge of
churches at Wytnore and at Seward.
Parker Makes Statement.
In speaking of the difficulty experienced
at Sterling Rev. Parker said last night:
"Let the people read carefully and keep
posted in this case. In regsrd to the care
less reports In the newspapers about L. G.
Parker, I wish to say as soon as I receive
some important papers this case will be
prosecuted to the finish. As I stated be
fore, I carried a letter from a young man
to m young girl and if that Is a crime I
am a criminal. Some have enlarged upon
this until thny bring character into ques
tion, which In fact this was foreign to my
statement until reporters got hold of It.
"I shall let the law take Its course upon
those who did not commit crime and if I
am guilty of a single act that is wrong In
the case, I challenge any party to prove
It. I have papers I think that will settle
the case in the pudgment of an intelligent
public We will publish in a few days In
detail. I am well aware that the black
man and the preacher are subject to mob
law. A certain class of Ulbreds are always
after the preacher, but be patient and lis
ten to the conclusion of ths whole 'matter.
I have not said much about the case In
the newspapers as yet on the advice of
my counsel."

EL PASO, Tex., May 7 Fearing com

I. Madero, jr., hss given orders to all the
revolutionists on the Mexican border to
withdraw from the frontier. He, himself,
with all the tnsurrectos before Cludad
Juarez will proceed southward, his ob
jective point being the City of Mexico.
General Madero, In a manifesto to nis
army today cited the Douglas, Aris., In

of Juares might ' be an immense military
advantage, it would bring about complica

Ths pesce negotiations have been a hope

It Is no secret at the Madero camp today
that the abandonment of border warfare
Is In line with the policy of the lnsur
rectos from now on to court ssrly
recognition from the United States, of their
belligerency. MaderO'S military lleutensnts
were loath to abandon their fiosltlon around
Juarez, especially General Orotco, who was
confident he could taks the city. General
Madero, however, reassured his men of
his faith in them, explaining his plans in
the following msnlfesto:
"When, you were Invited to come and
take the important city of Juares. you all
I responded to my call with a cry of enthusi
asm. I know that your efforts would have
proved irresistible knd that very quickly
this city would have fallen Into our hands
but. since arriving at the border, 1 have
received knowledgs thst when our brothers
took another town which Is also on the
International line of the United States, the
bullets of those fighting fll onto Ameri
can territory and claimed many victims.
"This brought diplomatic complications,
which would be Inevitable if an attack
were made on Juares, and might bring
about very serious eompllcatlons with
nation which has often given us proofs of
its friendship, And it devolves upon us to
sacrifice this Immense military advantage
which would result In the taking of Juares,
which would probably result In an Interna
tional conflict.
Recognises Bis; Sacrifice.
"I understand the Immense aacrlfk-a
which we make In this. Our field officers,
especially our generals, have manifested
with great Insistence their desire to take
the city at hand or to sacrifice their lives
in the attempt.
"General Pascual Oroxo, especially, who
at the last time when he was near to the
city of Juares could not attack it, con
sidered that it was h military obligation
that he should not retire a second time
without msklng sn assault. But, showing
an example of patriotism and abnegation,
