London, Nov. 30.���A special despatch to
the United Press fioiri Rome saya that the
Credit Mobilier of that city hag suspended
payment. The news of the Buspeneion has
created a deep impression owing to the
various branches the concern had indifferent
parts of Italy, all the depositors in which
will suffer severely. The failure is attributed to the fall in rents. It is impossible to
predict accurately the results of the Credit
Mobilier failure. Many other failures will
certainly follow it. Genoa suffers moat.
The bourses there and in Florence closed
after the announcement of the collapse. The
effect ot the crash will be evident here to
morrow, when several stock exchange firms
will go iuto liquidation. The c.-euitors of
the Credit Mobilier, including depositors,
number more than twenty thousand. It is
reported to-night that an extension of time
will be granted to the Credit Mobilier. The
managers of the institution say that careful
examination has shown that more than
three-fourths of its assets are intact. The
extension waa requested merely because the
institution was unable to realize to meet all
withdrawals.
AN INSURGENT VICTORY.

London, Nov. 30.���A despatch from
Buetios Ayres gives this report of recent
movements in Brazil:���"The insurgents
have won a victory near Bage, in Rio
Grande do Sul. General lsadore, commander
of the Government forces, was taken prisoner. Many were killed and wounded on
both aides. The forts at Rio Janeiro continue to cannonade the warships in the
harbor. The iraosport Madeira recently
fired upou tho insurgent warship Aquidaban
and damaged her seriously."
A despatch from Peris eayt- t hat Senor
Guanabara, ex-member of the Brazilian
Congress, has recei ed u. deftfeatoJi from Dr.
Barbosa, Lima, governor of Pernambuco,
who reported all the members of the Mari-
armos conspiracy there to hove been arrested. '1 li�� decree of state of a siege has
been suspended. The Federates' local forces
are united in a desire to uphold the Govern
ment. The rebels lack itmi, money and
popular support. Public feeling is calm.
Business is as usual.
The Gathering of The Clans.
Montreal. Nov. 30.���The St. Andrewa'
and Caledonian Society gave a grand ball
at tho Windsor Hotel tonight, which wae
attended by the leading society people of the
city. Governor-General anil Lady Aberdeen
were present and led the dancing. The
Countess Aberdeen appeared ina magnificent
costume of grey brocade trimmed with
Gordon tartan and wore a coronet of
diamonds and other precious stones.
Harvard Triumphant.
Boston. Nov. 30.���The eleven of tho
University of Pennsylvania, was given a
royal welcome on its reappearance on Jarvia
Field, Cambridge, after an absence of four
yeara today. When ahe locked handa with
Harvard. Theywereoutplayedhow^ver,Har-
vard winning by a score of 26 to four. The
game was contested throughout on its merits
aa football and was altogether devoid of
objectionable features. Peunyslvania's in-
teiferecce at times was not effective. At
the opening of the game it was full of snap,
but it was easily penetrated. After lln>
second opening by I'euusyivania with a forty
yard gniu, Harvard wavered and a touch
down was made for Peunyslvania. This
was the only time they soored. Barring
these minutes lhe Harvard defence waa nil
that could lie desired. N> sharper breaking through the lino was ever shown by a
Harvard team. It is a strange condition
which haa brought Pennsylvania iu two
short weeks from being almost tqual equally
with a team which has since defeated Harvard to being completely outclassed by Harvard, For b��cks i hero is uo team in the
country better equipped so far as individuals
are concerned. But it is thertiu that thu
weakness comes. They never aeem to p]��y
fully in concert. The right side of the line
developed their weakness nnd it was there
that Harvard's moat frtquent gains were
made.

evening by special train from St. Hyaointhe,
acoompanied by a large retinue of bishops

be regarded aa aignificant. The delegate
spoke in Latin, and the following summary
of hia remarks was furnished by Dr. Papi,
his secretary. After a biief reference to the
dnty of Catholics to observe Thanksgiving
Day, and to pray for the prosperity of the
Republic, Mgr. Satolli said : "We may
be sure of this���that all Americans,
of whatever church they may be members,
even if of none, recognize the value of the
Catholic school. They are interested in it.
They work for it, they with it to continue
and progress. They have learned by experience thit the little ones educated iu
those schools do not fall short in their
knowledge of the American constitution,
that they do not lack in the most progressive of American ideas; that they are endowed with steadiness of character, with
constancy of purpose; that they are just,
active, charitable and generous onto sacrifice. Such is the magnificent spectacle presented to America by the Catholic schools,
not unlike the spectacle given by the first
Christians to the whole world, in the early
centuries of the Church. But thanks to
God, and glory to the men who inspired the
American constitution, such a state of things
aa obtained in Rome is not possible here,
And I will say that whoever seriously meditates on the principles of the American con
stitution, whoever is acquainted with the
present condition of the Amerioan Republic, thould be persuaded and
agree with us that the action of the
Catholic faith and morality is favorable in
every way to the direction in which the constitution turns. Furthermore, public
opinion and the Government will favor the
Catholic schools, and more aud more will
the welfare of tbe commonwealth be en-
banted. The Catholic education ia the
surest safeguard of the permanence throughout the country of the constitution, and the
best guide of the Republican civil progress.
From this source the constitution will
gather security for the perfect organization
of that progressive body, which is the
American republic. Thia is the sincere expression of my conviction and a profession of
my faith in tins matter. Up to the present
it has been inexplicable to me, and never
perhaps shall I find out what wai the origin
of the suspicion that my vows were not
favorable to Catholic schools.
"Had I spoken dif�� rently, I should be
unfaithful to my mission, ungrateful to the
generous hospitality which I have enjoyed
and am enjoying in America, and moreover
I should have given the lie to my first and
unchangeable convictions. Eveiy Catholic
school is a safe guardian of youth, and it is
at the aame timo for the American youth a
place of trlining where they are brought up
for the advantage of church and country.
Giant Heaven that the achools may continue to increaae in number, grow stronger,
reach the highest perfection, endowed with
tbe blessings of God, commanded by the
authority of the church and the Holy
Fattier, honored and appreciated by every
honest citizen, from the illustrious President
to the moat humble woikman. Those only
are tgainst them who do not know them
or who are not animated by the spirit of
the church, and aro wanting in the sentiments of true liberty."
The Pacific Cable.
Ottawa. Nov. 30.���By the Australian
mail reoeived to-duy the Department of
Trade and Commerce received advices of the
progress made in Australia by the Hon. Mr.
Bowell and Mr. Sauford Fleming in the
matter of intercolonial co-operation in the
pioposed Pacific cable. Mr. Fleming enters
into detailed calculations of the cost of the
oable, the proposed routes (specifying four
in number), and the manner iu which c ilo-
ninl asaistauco can be given to the project,
and the revenue likely to be derived. The
cost of the cable is, in round figures,
i'1,745,1:00. Within four years after completion, ho thinks, the interest on the capital will bo met, and thenceforward there
will be annual eurpluFea.
Fired Into the Mob.
J husky Cray, N, J., Nov. 30.���A squad
of special police have returned from Plain-
field with a freight train, and reported to
Chief Gregory that when near the Singer
Maying inaeliinu factory, they were attacked
by the mob armed with stoues and pieces of
00(1. After several of the special policemen
had been stiuuk with flying misiles, the
police drew their revolvers and fired into
tho crowd. Tho mob then dispersed. Tne
specials don't know whe'.her any shots took
etloot but aay that they did noi, shoot over
the heads of the mob, but right into their
mi Int. They were unable to tell whether
the men were strikers or simply men who
sympathized with the strikers.
Grovor Cleveland at Church.
Washington, Nov, 30.���President and
Mra. Cleveland attended the Central Presbyterian church, on the coiner of Third and
1 atreeta, today. The President looked
unusually well and free from care, as
did also Mrs. Cleveland. The acrviceae were
brief and largely attended. At the conclusion of the Hormon the congregation arose
aud aang "America," and the benediction
waa prouuincul by Dr. Sunderland. A considerable assembly had gathered dining the
services, and the Presidential couple passed
quickly out amid the rest of the congregation.

Washington,  Nov.   30.���In  bia annual
report to the House, Secretary of the Navy
Herbert shows tbat the   total   number of
serviceable war vessels now  in   the  United
Statea navy is 41, fifteen of which are armoured.     In addition there are 64 vessels on
the list, mostly wooden  cruisers, tugs and
antiquated   monitors   that  are   set   down
as unserviceable for war purposes.     Tables
are given showing the naval strength of the
leading  powers  and   a   comparison drawn
from them places the United States seventh
in the rank of naval powers.    The secretary
requests authority to devote  the $430,000
authorized for the construction  of a vessel
similar to the Veeuviva, to the construction
of three torpedo boats, and also recommends
an inorease of the limit of oost   of the swift
torpedo cruiser authorized  by   the   act of
1890, so as to enable the department to have
thia vessel laid down during the  next fiscal
year.      Surveying    the    whole   field,  the
secretary finds muoh to be proud of in  the
knowledge that we can furnish the material
for and build modern ships of war as quickly
and without doubt  aa well as any country
in tbe world.     He feels confident that some
of our ship yards rival the beat in Europe.
The aecretary gives a statement in  detail of
the completed   and    uncompleted    vessels
of the navy, up   to   the   beginning  of   the
present     year.      The     statement     shows
that      the     veasels      completed       since
Maroh  4tb,   1885  have   cost ��250,000.432,
and   the     premiums    aggregate    $586,916
the heaviest premium $200,000, being earned
by the New York.   This statement noes net
include the Columbia and other veseela completed aince the end of  tin   last fiscal year.
In addition to these, there are now in process   of   construe: ion, or authorized  to  be
built, vessels upon which have been expended $26,701,056. The aecretary devotes much
apace in hia report to the discussion of ordnance and armor.    He says that the weight
of foreign opinion is in favor of limiting the
size of  nuns   to   12 inch   calibre,   and the
weight to 50 tons. He believes that the new
eight-inch nickel steel gun,  combining the
employment of material  never   before  need
for guu construction, with an entirely new
process for assembling, will give an increased
tfticiency at a greatly reducod cost of manufacture.  The smokeless powder manufacture
is still regarded as being in the experimental
stage, aud if further  developments demonstrate its success, under aervice conditions,
it will be issued for use on ship-board without delay. Reforerce is made to tin remarkable success of the steel makers   in producing armor-pier; ing proj;c*iles  in   this country, and it is s���id  that  they  equal,   if   not
surpass, any shells made abroad.   The secretary reviews the   work   of the  small  arms
board during the past summer, and saya that
he has approved its re commendation, that the
navy be equipped witha magazine rifleof 256
calibre, to use smokeless powder, which will
give a   muzzle  velocity of   2,400  feet per
second, and an effective range of a nolo and
a half, and employ cartridges of bi*-' "eight
as to permit of not leas than two hundred
rounds being supplied each man.     This rifle
will be of smaller calibre than  that now in
use by any other power and it, will  give the
United States a weapon with   ballistic and
tactical qualities superior  to  those  of any
other small  arm.    The armor   plate   testa
durii'g the past year have iu cases exceeded
in severity   any   attempted   either in  this
country or abroad.    The  resultB have conclusively   demonstrated the  desirability of
usiug the Harvey process  for the  armor of
all vessels now under  construction.    These
and other experiments induced the secretary
to   order   that all  of   the   armor   already
ordered and not too far advanced should  be
treated by the  Harvey process     Touching
the stability of certain   vessels  of the new
navy, the secretary says that, the boards appointed to look inio the subject recommended a number   of   changes   in   the   Detroit,
Montgomery   and    Marblehcad,   to    make
them secure in heavy weather against  top-
heaviness and heat once ordered the changea
to be made.
The board ia now investigating tho Machine and Castine, and from preliminary
reports a'rean'y leceived it ia evident that
they will require charges of a similar
oharacter to make them safe.
Probably the most important chapter in
the report treats of tho naval policy of the
country. Mr. Herbert recalls President
Cleveland's recommendation to Congrcsa in
1S85, looking to the increase of tho naval
establishment, and Secretary Whitney's
successful efforts to inaugurate a new policy
in this respect. He says that our navy haa
not yet come up to the standard; that our
navy shall be as efficient when compared
with others as that which the country possessed before the era of modern ships and
when our seaporta were deemed to be, at
they oerfainly are not now, amply provided
with fortifications fully up to the requirements of the age. The secretary says we
have now building only four vesaels whioh
can properly be denominated fitst-olaaa
battleships. The cruisers and gunboats we
have builr, and are buili'ing constitute an
efficient fleet and will prove sufficient when
they shall all be in commission for cruising
purposes in ordinary limes and to look after
our commerce abroad. In time of war
these oruiscre, aided by the Paris, the New
York and the other ships being built by
Cramp Bros, for the American line, whioh
constitute practically all of our auxiliaty
navy that is valuable, will be of great use
as commerce destroyers. But unarmored
cruisers are not, properly speaking, fighting
vesaela.

BRITISH COLUMBIA BENEFITTED
By the Lumber Provisions of the New
Tariff Bill- Tito American Industry
Injured.
Tacoma, Nov. 29.���Juat how hard the
new tr.iitr bill will hit the lumber industry
waB outlined yesterday by Victor H. Beck-
man, associate editor of the Pngit Sound
Lumberman, as follows:���
"If the proposed measure passes Congress
there ia no question but the lumber industry
of the Pacific coast of the United States
will suffer. The lumbermen of theae states,
irrespective of political affiliations, are on
record as being opposed to putting lumber
on the free list.
"Fifty million dollars in round numbers
represent the capital employed in the lumber industry of the Pacific coast. There
are 840 sawmills and 404 shingle mills in the
states of Washington, Oregou and California, whose output of lumber footed up last
year 2,300,000,000 feetaf lumber and 2,200,-
000,000 shingles, of the aggregate value of
$27,000,000 The number of men employed
in the logging camps of these states ia 27,-
0C0, to whom are paid in wagea annually
$18,000,000. Naturally this industry, the
mainstay of at least Washington and Oregon, is vitally interested in the tariff question.
" British Columbia, which will compete
with the three states above mentioned, p js-
sesscs a greater lumber area than the three
statea combined. Last year Washington and
Oregon shipped into California, which is a
great lumber-consuming state, 325,000,000
feet of lumber aud, shipped eastward to the
prairie states 150,000,000 feet and 1,000,000
shingles. It is conceded that British Columbia will cut seriously into the California
trade, and perhaps compete to some extent
with Washington and Oregon lumber in the
eastern states, if lumber is placed on the
free list.
" The large cargo mills of British Columbia* employing Chinese and kanaka labor,
there being little or no restrictions to the
importation of alien labor there, are in a
position to unload into California vast quantities of lumber in competition with the
mills on this side of the line, which pay
white labor higher wages than obtain
in any other lumber industry section in
this country. As fully one-half of the
exports of lumber from Washington
and Oregon find the:r way to California, thin is a very serious matter. So far
as the Eastern trade is concerned there will
be but little direct competition, the British
Columbia mills not having found a market
aB yet, but directly a lot of cheap lumber
from Eastern Canada gets into the prairie
states via the lakes and on the Atlantic seaboard it will naturally handicap the shipment of Pacific Northwestern fir, cedar and
spruce by rail.
"British Columbia shingles cannot compete in the East with the Washington and
Oregon product. Unlike a sawmill, the
bulk of labor employed in a shinele mill ia
skilled, and as skilled shingle mill labor
commands the same remuneration in Britiah
Columbia as on Puget Sound, and as the
cost of raw material is also about the same
there is no danger from that source. But
the cheap shingles from Eastern Canada
may do considerable harm in the prairie
states and may naturally cause the demand
for the really fine red cedar article to drop
off in a measure."
Chairman Henry Drum, of the Democratic
state committee, is said to have anticipated
the placing of lumber on the free list by
getting poescBsion of a British Columbia
saw mill.
A Newspaper Sale.
New York, Nov. 30.���The Times says:���
The purchase of the Mail und Express by
Mr. William Walter Phelps is reported. It
is understood that the conditions of the sale
have been agreed upon between Mr. Phelps
and the executors of the estate of the late
Elliott F. Sbepard, and that the transfer
will take place on January let. Colonel
Shepard paid Mr. Cyrua VV. Field about
$350,000 for the paper. The price to be
paid by Mr. Phelpa is not known. A ion of
Mr. Phelps, a young man of ability and
promise, is at present a member of the staff
of the -1/aiY nnd Express, and the surmise
that the paper will come under his direction
is probably correct.
Trotting Horses Matched.
Philadelphia, Pa., Nov. 30.���Saladin,
'2.05j, who was beaten by Directum on
Monday last has been matched against Fly
ing Jib 2.04 for a purse of $3,000 which has

Association and haa been accepted by the
owners of the two fleet pacers. The contest
will come off at the Belmont Park on Monday next, on which day Directum, Alix and
Little Albert will go against their own
records. Monroe Salisbury haa leaaed or
purchased the fast trotting marc Alix and

sealing vtsaels will assemble io Yokohama
and fish in the neighborhood of Oshu.
The Deetroyor to Be Towed.
N��w York, Nov. 30.���The American
steamer Sanluil, owned by L. G. Burnham
A Co., of Boston, it is learned from reliable
���ources, hue been chartered by R. Flint k
Co., of this city, to tow the Destroyer, the
submarine gun vessel, to Brazil. The San-
tuil was the former British steamer Alp,
which sunk a few yeara ago in New York
harbor. The Alp was subsequently raised,
and from the fact tbat the cost of repairs
equalled 75 per cent, of the original oost of
the craft, it was possible to obtain for her
an American register. In addition to towing the Destroyer, the Santuil will carry
on deck the English Yarrow torpedo boat.
May Be a Canard.
San Francisco, Nov. 39.���It was reported to-day that the Pacifio Mail steamer City
of Peking bad been caught in a typhoon
while on her voyage to Yokohama, and had
been considerably damaged. The cabin is

Menage, the indicted president of the in-
aolvent Guirantee Loan Company. Miniater
Voting, it is underatood, has cabled that the
young man has been found in Honduras, and
aa he asked for new extradition pipers, it ia
thought that Menage had been either arrested or ia walohed in auch a manner
that his capture ia oertain now. It ia aaid
that the information leading to Menage's
discovery was given by one of his old friends
and associates, who aold it to Sheriff Ege
for $500. Menage's friends here claim that
he waa immediately advised that he had

It Surprised Them.
London, Nov. 31.���'lhe published provi-
sionaof the new U.S. Tariff Bill caused
special surprise in the cutlery, steel and
electroplate industries in She ffield. A
representative of tha United Press to-day
interviewed the principal Sheffield manufacturers trading with the Uni'ed States to
ascertain their opinion of the. Wilson Bill.
Some aaid that the reductions made were
not aa large aa they expected Others aaid
they were satisfied with the bill, aud expressed the hope that it would lead to a
revival of orders from the United States,
Those manufacturers who expected larger
reductions based their hopes upon reports
which their agents iu America sent early in
the year. They now express the belief that
the tariff bill was modified in consequence
of the results of the recent elections.
Manufacturers generally wanted to know
exactly what kind of cutlery will be allowed
to come under the 35 per cent, tariff, because if thia rate covers medium goods they
see good pi ospectB of their American trade
reviving. At tha same time, Ibey think
that the low tariff will allow German manufacturers to flood the United States with
cheap products to the serious detriment of
good American manufacturers. Get man
makers, they ray, expecting tariff reform,
have been piling up euormoua stocks ready
to pour into the United States.
Denies the Story.
Vienxa, Nov. 30'���A banker of this oity
received from Honolulu a letter from Count
Festetics, an Austrian nobleman, who married Miss Ella Noggie, an American girl,
denying the truth of the story received here
some time ago from San Francisco, saying
that the crew of the Count's yacht Tolna
had during the honeymoon, whioh was spent
on the yacht, attempted to seize the vessel
and expel the Count and his bride. The
Count in his letter says he and his wife arrived safely in Honolulu on October Kiih.

OUR  NEW STORY.
Look out for the new serial story which
will appear in The Daily Telegram in a
few days. We want to give everybody who
does not now take the paper an opportunity
to do so before starting the story.
THE LABOR
DELEGATES AT
TORI A.
VIC-
As will be observed by the report of the
conference between the delegates of the
various Trades' Unions of the Province and
the Provincial Government which appeared
in yesterday's Teleoram, what might have
been fraught with beneficial results to all
parties concerned, has for the time being at
least come to naught. This is to be regretted because had the delegates met the
Government in a proper spirit, and on
the lines laid down for them by their respective organizations, we have'no hesitation
in saying much good would have been accomplished. We believe that in order to
avoid friction between capital and labor,
and the disastrous results of misunderstandings which are always liable to arise between employer and employed, it is
necessary for Parliament to constitute a competent authority to deal
with such matters, but in doing ao
every precaution must be taken to guard
the interests not only of organized labor but
unorganized labor, and the employer must
also receive equal consideration. We believe this was the principle kept in view by
the various labor organizations in selecting
their delegates to go to Viotoria. We do
not believe that it ever entered the
minds of those bodies when appointing their representatives that those representatives were Bimply to go on a billet-
hunting expedition for themselves and
friends.
It has been claimed on behalf of the delegates that they were not qualified for the
mission entrusted to them by their respective
unions, and that they did not understand
the purport of the resolutions which
they submitted to the Government.
Whether this is the case or not,
will remain for the delegates themselves to say. One thing is certain; their
oonduct has been a serious blow to the interests of labor.
Of the Beven resolutions as represented
below, it will be observed that only two
refer in any way to the Arbitration Aot, viz,
five and seven. Following are the seven
olauses:
"1. That the delegates of organized labor
assembled strongly urge upon the Government the advisability of working tha
Department of Labor Statistics by servants
from the ranks of organized labor.
"2. That organized labor demand of the
Government the privilege of appointing
officers for  the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
"3. That organized labor demand of the
Government the privilege of nominating
men to fill the offices in the Bureau of Labor
Statistics, and the Government make the
appointments from among the men to nominated.
"4. That organized labor give no information to the Department of Labor Statistics unleBB auch organized labor is fully represented in such department.
"5. That this meeting of delegates endorse the principle of compulsory arbitration and that the Government be urged to
incorporate aaid principle in the Act at the
next session of the Legislature.
"6. That the opinion of this meeting be
that alien labor should bB prohibited from
all Government contracts let in  the future.
"7. That we ask the Government to insert
a clause in all contracts let by them to the
effect that all the trades rules in the locality
in which contraot* are let be observed.*'
One to four deal exclusively in "demanding" positions, while six would shut out
almost one half of the beat workmen in this
province. In reference to resolution six we are at a loss to
know where the delegates would draw the
line. As a matter of fact a number of the
delegates themselves weie aliens; many of
the best union men in this city and other
parts of the Province are aliens, yet the
majority of the delegates would exclude all
these from tho right to work on government
contracts.
As we said before, we regret the outcome
of the conference, becauae it has failed to
accomplish the purpose it was intended for
and has thereby caused a breaoh in the ne
gotiations wide enough in itself, but being
already made broader by the opposition
press and politioal demagogues for the purpose of making capital against the Government.
PROVINCIAL ITEMS.
First-class sleighing is reported from
K-imloops.
It is anticipated by Westminster merchants that the building of the Eraser bridge
at that point will revive business in the "city
of Balmon and sawdust."
Y.M.C.A. work in New Westminster is
reviving. Forty members were added at a
reception held on Tuesday night, and an
effort is to be made to pay its pressing debts.
The jury in the case of Thos. Carruthers.
charged with the murder of a Chinaman at
Victoria, after being out eight hours, failed
to agree, and were discharged. A new trial
will be called.
A sentence of three montha.impoBed on Geo.
Ellery at Victoria, for killing* valuabledog, in
consideration of the defendant's age and infirmity, was reduced by Mr. Juatice Walkem
to one month.
Navigation has closed for the winter on
the Kootenay and Columbia Lakes. All the
steamers belonging to the Upper Columbia
Steamboat Company have been hauled out
for the season.
Indian Jack, who, with his son, was sentenced at the Westminster Assizes to be
hanged on January 15th for the murder of
Albert Pittandrigh, has completely collapsed, and is in a very low condition. His
son Peter is in fairly good spirits.
The bed on which Stroebel, the reputed
murder of Marshall at Huntingdon, slept on
the night of the murder, has been sent to
Victoria, where-it will be set up with the
object of disproving certain statements made
by the prisoner. The case will be again tried
on Dec, 6th.
Yesterday was the last day upon whioh
tenders were received for the construction of
the new Government buildings at Victoria.
The competition for the work will probably
be very keen, as contractors from all parts
of the Pacific coaat, as well as several Irom
the East, have been interesting themselves
in the master. As the task of examination
of the tenders will be no light one, it will
probably be several days before any announcement as to the award oan be made.
The sentencing of two Indians in New
Westminster to the death penalty for shooting Albert Pittendrigh last winter has violated the Siwash sense of justice in a way
that threatens to give serious trouble. But
one shot had taken effect in Pittendrigh's
body, and why two Indians should be held
guilty of firing that one shot is more than
the Indians cen understand. To the fiiends
of the condemued men also it does not seem
just that it should require the lives of two
of their tillicums to atone for the death of
one white man. The idea of one being an
accessory to the committal of a crime is
what they cannot comprehend.���Sentinel.

Will Build New Bunkers.
The New Vanoouver Coal Company intend erecting large coal bunkers alongside
their present wharves in order to facilitate
tbe loading of ships. The bunkers will have
a capacity of 2,000 tons. Plans have been
prepared, and the work will be commenced
by the company as soon aB the weather will
permit.
There is no change in the condition of the
coal market. The removal by the United
States of the dnty on coal will assist the
British Columbia mines, but is not likely to
produce any greatly increased demand,
though possibly it may cause large exports
from Australia and Japan.. Welsh anthracite ia being sold in San Francisco and there
will probably be a large demand for it.
Mr. T. L. Brown in a Box.
Mr. T. L. Brown, of " The Box" clothing
store, has been in a queer box indeed during
the past few days. He began to move his
fine stock of clothinggand gents' furnishings
to new premises some days ago, and as a
result has had everything topsy-turvey until
last night. When seen in his new premises
at a late hour last night by a Telegram reporter, Mr. Brown was boxed up, indeed, if
being surrounded by a lot of customers
making purchases will place one in that
poaition. The new home of " The Box " is
Mr. A. A. Richardson's old stand, opposite
Pimbury & Co.'s drug store.
Almost a Bis; Blase.
About 1:30 this morning a fire was discovered in a bedroom on the second floor of
the Palace Hotel, occupied by Mr. W. A.
Calhoun, foreman oi the Telegram composing room. The fire was caused by burning
coals falling from the grate on to the floor
and igniting the carpets. When discovered the flames had made considerable
headway, having burnt a large hole in
the floor and partition. With the assistance of officers Gibbs and Brown a
bucket brigade was formed, and the fire
extinguished without the assistance of the

VICTORIA NEWS.
World's Fair Exhibits May be Bodily
Transferred���The W.C.T.U. Convention
Closed.
Victoria, Nov. 30���(Special).���The British Columbia Women's Christian Temperance Union closed its tenth annual convention this evening, the session having lasted
four days. Among the resolutions adopted
were declarations in favor of a general extension of the franchise rights to women; of
changing the age of consent from sixteen to
eighteen yearB; of appointment of matrons
for all jails and prisons; of making it illegal
for children under fourteen to be on the
streets after nine o'clock at night, and of
amending the existing law regarding the
sale of tobacco, miking it illegal to supply
cigarettes to any person under twenty-one
years. The newly-elected Provincial officers
are:���Mrs. Spofford, Victoria, president;
Mrs. McGregor, Viotoria, and Miss Mac-
Dougal, New Westminster, secretaries; and
Mrs. M. A. Cunningham, New Westminster, treasurer.
Moran Bros, will make a final attempt to
raise the San Pedro to-morrow and if unsuccessful, as it is feared they will be, will
abandon the wreck.
Thomas McNutt of New Brunswick has
succeeded in securing possession of the
estate of Samuel McNutt, a Nanaimo miner,
who was drowned while on his way from
Victoria to Seattle in August, 1883. He
left four thousand dollars in gold in the
Provincial treasury.
The Boards ot Trade of the four chief
cities of the Province interviewed the Government to-night re Provincial representation at the California Fair. It is expected
that the World's Fair exhibits will be
transferred to San Francisco in bulk.
A   VANCOUVER   BLAZE.
A New Telegraph Line���Influenza on the
Warpath���The Mayoralty Contest.
Vancouver, B. C, Nov. 30.���[Special.]���
Fire to-day destroyed the drying kiln at
Tate's shingle mill. The fire was first noticed a few minutes before 1 o'clock. The
flames spread all over the building with a
rush. The fire company got to the scene in
very quiok time, but could do veiy little, as
the suction hose became disordered. Their
work was assisted considerably by heavy
rain.    The loss will be about ��1,000.
The C. P. R. telegraph line between Nelson and Revelstoke was declared comi leled
to-day and iB now working.
Committees from the Board's of Trade of
this city and New Westminster went to Victoria today to ask help from the Government
in the representation of British Columbia at
the San Francisco Midwinter Fair.
The new buildings for the British Columbia Jute and Cordage Co. to replace
those destroyed by fire are near completion.
As soon ae completed the works will run
eteadily with a force of from 25 to 30 men.
La grippe is rampant in the city. City
Clerk McGuigrn and Col Tracy, the city
engineer are both very ill.
No reply has yet been received from the
Minisser of Militia and Defence regarding
the proposed leasing of the Imperial Opera
House as a drill hall.
The contest for the mayoralty will be a
fierce one. Aldermen Anderson, Collins
and ex-Alderman Clark are the candidates.
The coming year will be a critical one.
The annual ball of the Caledonian and St.
Andrews Society at the Hotel Vancouver
this evening was a brilliant success.
DIRECT FROM KASLO.
Telegraphic   Communication  With  tbe
Kootcnay Country Now Established.
Kaslo, B.C., Nov. 30.���[Speoial]���Direct
telegraphic oommunication with the Canadian Pacific Railway's system was opened
to-day by completion of the line from Revelstoke to Nelson aod opening of offices at all
important points in the Kootenay oountry.
The wagon road from Kaslo to the interior
has been converted into a sleigh road and a
large number of teams are now busy transporting supplies to the mines and returning
with ore. The snow is about two feet deep
on the level.
The town ia assuming a busy appearance
and many new arrivals are booked at the
hotels.
. The different mines continue to show up
remarkably well and operations, so far from
being hampered by the approach of winter,
are being pushed forward with great zeal
and energy.
(Continued from page one.)
"They can destroy merohant ships," says
the secretary, "They can tight vessels of
their own class, but they oannot meet armored vessels with any reasonable hope of
suoeass, and in time of war, scattered abroad
over the high seas as they would be, if we
sent them against an enemy's commerce,
they would leave our unfortified Boa coast
with all oities, absolutely without reliance,
except upon four first-class and two
seoond-olass battle ships, seven coast defense
vessels and two little torpedo boats. These,
if they were all ooncentrated, would scarcely be able to oreate a diversion of any
enemy's fleet, and if aoattered would not
furnish a battle ship, or even a torpedo boat
for the defense oi each city. If we carried
out such a programme during a war, an
enemy with a fleet of battle ships, could
wreck cities while we were rohbing schooners."
The aecretary makes a strong argument in
support of the contention that the navy has
now a sufficient number of cruisers and
should be further strengthened by battle
ships. If our Government in the future,
says tbe seoretary, is to have naval strength
enough to command peace and be in condition to enforce the terms dictated by its
sense of right and justice, it must have
more battle ships, and must build a reasonable number of torpedo boats. The seoretary argues that for ooast defence torpedo
boats are more effective according to oost
than any other class of vessels. He cites
the English naval mamouvros laat summer
to show that 18 torpedo boats valued at
$1,800,000, with crews of 350 men,destroyed
a battle ship and six oruisere valued at
$9,750,000, and with crews numbering 2,050
men, the difference of losses being, in
money $7,950,000 and in men 1,900. The
secretary * says that no one can
value economy more highly than he does,
but the safety of the country, its honor and
its dignity must rise above every other consideration, and the programme of authorizing the building of at least some vessels at
eaoh session of Congress ought hot to be intercepted now, therefore he recommends
that the construction of at least one battleship and six torpedo boats be authorized by
Congress at the ooming  session.   He   says
that this will rtquire the expenditure of
very little money for the coming fiscal year,
probably not more thau ��360,000 for tbe
torpedo boats and not more than one-tenth
of the cost of the battle-ship. It may be
well, he says, considering financial conditions, to make only moderate provisions for
new ships, but it would be much regretted
if Congress should, by making none whatever, indicate an intention to abandon entirely the work of constructing the new
navy at a lime when all the plants are in
operation throughout the country, ready to
build in better style and at more economical
rates than ever before.
The secretary again calls the attention of
Congress to the alarming state of the personnel of the navy. He points to the evils which
result from retarding promotions, so that
men have passed the prime of life without
acquiring a knowledge of responsible duties
or having had the opportunity to assume
the control of a man-of-war, and states that
he is engaged in the preparation of plans for
the reorganization of the line of the navy for
submission to Congress. The secretary asks
for Congressional direction respecting the
disposition to be made of the Columbian
caravels and the Viking ship. Touching the
competitive examination system of selecting
mechanics in navy yards, the secretary says
that there is no doubt that the system of
employing laborers without reference to their
politics, and making merit the sole test of
their retention and advancement, is greatly
to the benefit of the Government.
The secretary makes some recommendations touching examinations for promotions
suggesting an amendment of the retirement
acts, so as to permit the promotion boards
to inquire whether the physical disability is
the result of drunkenness, or the result of
other causes, arising from -misconduct. He
also suggests an extension of the examination system to the medical branches of the
service and to chief engineers.
The report closes with the presentation of
the estimates for the next fiscal year. These
amount to $27,885,1)14. The estimates for
the same purposes for the current fiscal
year amounted to $24,471,408, or $3,414,415
less than those of the next fiscal year. For
the current fiscal year the estimates for increase for the navy amount to $9,703,657,
and for the next fiscal year they amount to
$12,455,025, the difference being $2,751,368.
The total appropriations for the current
fiscal year were $22,504,061.
"PRINCETON WINS."
The  Yale  Football   Team   Defeated  by
Six to Nothing.
New York, Nov. 30.���"Piiacelon wins!"
was the cry on the streets to-day; and all
things went to show that it was a complete
victory, Princeton securing six to Yale's
nothing. The city's football c-xcitemont
reached the oulminating point to-day. It
may bo maintained at this point for another,
perhaps for many seasons, but it cannot
pass the point reached to-day unless nature
provides humanity with more and wilder
means of expressing excitement than were
posaessed by the mad thousands that
watched the Yale Princeton game on the
Manhattan field to-day, and the other
thousands who oould not goto the game,
but who could and did cheer their favorites
as the gay pirade passed up the avenue in
every variety of vehicle, from a dog cart
to a Bix-horBe coach. The parade did
not differ from that of other years
except in degree. There were more
alumni, more undergraduates, more
best girls, from Connecticut and New Jersey, moro flags and colors and more noiae
and enthusiasm. Nearly every house from
Washington arch to Central Park was gay
with flags, their colors indicating the college
preference of the iu dwellers. The excitement and the crowds on the streets were
quickly forgotten when one saw the grounds
and the insane crowds there, Eighth avenue
and One Hundred and Fifty-fifth street, and
other streets in the vicinity, were a jam of
vehicles, howling students and struggling,
well-dressed men and women, striving to
gain entrance at the gates. Between 25 and
30 thousand did gain entrance, and altogether paid about $40,000 for the privilege.
That ia what was paid to the management.
What was actually paid would require an
accounting from tbe ticket speculators, who
were unusually numerous and pestiferous.
The iron viaduct which runs along One
Hundred and Fifly-fifth street from Washington Heights to the Harlem liver was
black with people, so altogether it is reasonable to say that 50,000 viewed the game.
Princeton was the popular favorite, but
not overwhelmingly bo. The Columbia
boys, who were numerous, were cheering for
Princeton, and as they were not only numerous but noisy and ubiquitous they made a
big showing of partisanship for the blaok
and yellow. The excitement and pent-up
forces were turned loose in the usual way,
when the twenty-two shock-headed youngsters made their appearance, ran out on the
gridiron and began cavorting on tbe grounds,
by wild cheers, tooting of norns, etc. The
substitutes, coaches, doctors and attendants
spread themselves out on blankets along the
north side. The captains ' were called up
by the umpire for a serious word of
warning against rough play, and at last
play was called. Princeton had the ball
and defended the east goal. As the teams
lined up there were cheers for individual
players, and some general cheering but as
the players braced for the first shock of
battle the great crowd again beoame absolutely silent.
A magnificent play through the oentre and
a touch down crowned the most brilliant
series of plays Princeton has ever exhibited.
King kicked off to Trenchard and then
dropped a nice goal from the twenty yard
line, and the soore was Princeton 6, Yale
none, time, 33 minutes. The remaining ten
minutes of the first half was spent in short
gains by both teams, Yale being somen hat
in the lead. In the second half, rushing
playa much the same as in the firat half
were indulged in by both teams but Yale could
not hold her ground and was out played at
almost every point.
SPULLER FAILED
To Form a Cablnet-Felreira Takes Up
the Job���And May Complete It.
Paris, Nov. 30.���Late this afternoon, M.
Spuller informed President Carnot that he
could not form a cabinet. His efforts were
thwarted by the persistent refusal of Bur-
deau to enter a cabinet without Constans or
Casimir Peireira. He retired willingly in
favor of Casimir Peireira who consented
this evening to try to form a ministry.
This unexpected turn of affairs, has excited
a great stir among politicians and along the
boulevards. Everybody is curious to know
what means the President used to persuade
Peireira to accept the mission, despite his
oft repeated and apparently immutable refusals. One rumor is that Carnot promised
to withdraw from the contest for the presidency next year,   and to exert himself   to

Casimir Peireira will probably have his

Meantime it is regarded as certain that Bur-
deau will be minister of finance; Raynal
minister of the interior, and Spuller,
minister of public instruction. The premier
is expected to take for himself the portfolio
of foreign affairs.
Elected Without Opposition.
Dublin, Nov. 30.���An olection was held
in the south division of Wexford to-day, to
fill the vacancy in the House of Commons,
caused by the acceptance of the stewardship
of the Chiltern Hundreds by Mr. John
Barry. Mr. Barry withdrew from Parliament because he waa opposed to the policy
of his party. The anti-Paruellites nominated Mr. Peter French for the seat and he
was returned to-day without opposition.
Probably Snleide.
St. Thomas, Ont., Nov. 30.���A man
named Roger Allan, formerly a milkman,
was found dead on Woodward avenue at
daybreak with his throat cut. One hundred and fifty feet away there was a large
pool of blood, but no trace of blood was
found between this spot and the body. The
man's watch is missing and the implement
with which tho wound was inflicted has not
been found. The facts give rise to a theory
of murder, but the general impression is
that the case is one of suicide. If murder
had been done the corpse would have been
left, it is argued, on the spot on which the
man's throat was cut and where the blood
is.    An inquest is in progress.

LOCAL  NEWS.
Vale, Chief of Police O'Connell.
Yeaterday waa the last day of duty as
chief of police of the city of Nanaimo performed by Thomaa O'Connell. It ia now
���ix years aince he received the appointment
from the Corporation, in succession to the
late Thos. Miller, who gave up the position
to undertake what the present ex-chief
undertakes to-day, Ihe superintendance of a
hotel. From the first day of his initiation
by Mr. Bale, J. P , up to the preseut time
there has not b^en one tingle, w.oid ol oi.in
plaint against liini. On tlie contrary his
conduct during his term has frequently
called forth the enccmiumB of our citizens.
The care, vigilance, aud perseverance with
which he has brought to a. successful issue
many difficult criminal cases have merited
public approval. The City Council placed
complete confidence in his fidelity and discretion, the public did the same and the
local Government testified their appreciation of his meriu and qualifications by fie
quently employing him upon oases of Pio-
vincial concern���a fact which wus fluttering
in itself. The zeal and work which he gave
to the enforcement of the rules of the Hoard
of Heallh at the time of the smallpox epidemic called for a special mark cf their approbation of the valuable services rendered,
when tne Corporation and citizens piesented
him with a valuable diamond ling. To-day
the public part with Chief O'Connell with
regret, und wish him well in his new venture
in the Commercial Hotel.
The Opium Ring.
The San Francisco Chronicle of Sunday
laat contains a long article treating of the
opium smuggling industry, if such a quea
tiouable means of earning a living (are
m&rkably good one, by the way) can be
ranked with the industries. According to
the Chronicle, all the illicit opium that
enters the United States comes from British
Columbia���Vancouver, Viotoria and New
Westminster being ita groat centres. Nanaimo also is responsible for a (rood deal of
it, the drug being packed in the cargo of
ooal chips. The paper also states in a s>.-p
arate item that opium is also aent through
the maila in registered packages, or at any
rate was, for since a seizure made a few
days ago, all registered matter coming from
northwestern ports to those in lower coast
oitiessuB pcoted of dealing in opium is closely
watched. The methods of the smugglers
are described in detail; and it ia stated that
the whole business is in the iunds of
wealthy and influential citizens on both
sides of the line, who, however, are so
guarded that it is impossible to obtain convictions. Those opium dealers and smugglers who are occasionally arrested are
merely the paid employees of the more
clever rogues.
For Victoria.
Thia oity has been asked by New Westminster to join with them in sending a delegation to Victoria to interview the Government with a view of urging the necessity of
having British Columbia and its products
represented at the Midwinter Fair in San
Francisco. Mayor .Haslam had intonded
going down to meot the other delegates
from Vancouver and New Westminster, but
being not sufficiently recovered from his
late attack of influenza, Aid. K. Nightingale, the senior alderman, took hia placo
and left by this morning's train for the
eapital. A better substitute or a better
representative from Nanaimo oould not have
been eelecud than the worthy alderman,
who is thoroughly conversant with the
country's resources, especially in the district
adjacent to Nanaimo.
Complimentary.
Mr. Dwight in speaking to a repiesenta-
tive of Tiik Tklkoram said that he had
been much pleased with his tour underground in the colliery of the New Vancou-
yer Coal Company. He regretted that the
day was so unpiopitioua sb lo seriously mar
the otherwise beautiful aspect of the oity.
With regard to the electric light plant, Mr.
Dwight and Mr. Nichols both remarked
that they were surprised and delighted with
the completeness ot the plant, its thoroughly perfect condition, and the wonderful
cleanliness exhibited in the motor centre.
He said he felt sure that the worka muat be
under the superintendence of a thoroughly
practical and efficient superintendent, otherwise they would not be in such good condition. The plant was the most complete and
perfect he had aeen west of Winnipeg.
Tne Criminal Record.
Only twenty-four cases came up before
the local magistrates during the past month.
Of these, ten were common drunks, the remainder being as follows: Supplyiig liquor
to Indiana, 4; assault, 4; breach Pharmacy
Act, 1; insulting language, 1; larceny, 1;
vagrancy, 1; refusing duty, 1.

When we dressed him for the grave we
round the Lord's prayer beautifully written in India ink 011 his forearm. It was

During thr. Dutch war, hi tho reign ot
Charles II., tbe English fleet and that of
Holland fought in the Channel for three days
successively, engaging in the daytime, nnd
lying-to at night. As they were preparing
to renew the action on the fourth morning,
word come that an armistice had been con.
eluded.
Hostilities were laid aside, and the bak
ligorent parties began to exchange mutual
civilities.
On board a Dutch man-of-war, which lay
alongside an English vessel, a sailor showed
wonderful agility by running up to tho mast
head and standing upon the truck. He then
went through several manoeuvres, and concluded by standing on his head, to the astonishment and alarm of the spectators.
On bis descending to the deck after this exploit, his comrades expressed their appreciation by a series of huzzas which bad a sound
of triumphing over the English.
One of the British tars, piqued for the
honor of his country, ran up to tbe top of
the vessel's mast like a cat, and essayed with
all his might to throw up his heels as the
Dutchman had doiie; but, Jacking the skill of
bis rival, he lost his balance, and came tumbling down much faster than he had gone
up.
The lookers-on held their breath in horror,
expecting to see him dashed to pieces on ths
deck, but luckily the rigging broke his fall,
and he alighted on his feet unhurt. He shook
himself, throw up his head, and in a somewhat staggering fashion rushed to the vessel's
side and cried exultingly to tbe Dutchman,

A Library on Plants.
At Warthenstein, in Germany, there
is perhaps one of the most curiously
original collections of books extant.
This consists of a botanical collection.
Outwardly, the. books present the common appearance of a block of wood,
and that is the first impression; but a
minute examination reveals the fact
that each is a complete history of the
particular tree which it represents. At
the back of the book the bark lias been
removed from a space which allows the
tcientific and the common names of the
tree to be placed as a title. One side is
formed from the split wood of the
tree, showing its grain and natural
fracture; the other shows the wood when
worked smooth and varnished. 6i��eeud
shows the grain as left by the saw, the
other the iinely-polished wood. On
opening the book, it is found to contain
the fruit, seed, leaves, and other product*
of the tree. These are supplemented by
a well-printed description of its habits,
usual location, and manner aud growth.
In fact, everything which has a bearing
upon that particular tree secures u place
in this wonderful, useful, and valuable
collection. Here is a precedent for the
botanical societies to adopt, and although
doubtless expensive, yet it will certainly
repay in its utility.

they are much less subject to indigestion,

sometimes it is a surpriae to all but the

is allowed, but the girls may consult their

During the past month 16 births, 6 marriages aud U deaths were entered on the
books at the Registry Office.
MemberB of the Sailor's Union who were
interviewed yeBterday are inclined lo treat
the story told by Ives, who was audited
at Port Townsend aa more or leas of a falsehood.
Some of the local butcher stores are already making preparations for the Christmas boom. The same has boen long antici.
pated by the dry goods and fancy goods
merchants.
The claim, in Bupport of which a writ was
served on the bark Dominion, on behalf of
the Say ward Mill Co. of Victoiia, was satis-
fied on Wednesday, and the vessel accordingly released.
The present week cf self denial on the
part of the Salvation Army in Canada has
been well observed in Nanaimo so far.
Quite a few others besides those who sport
the red jerBey have joined in with their
mites.
The only people in the city on whom tho
present weaiher seems to have no depressing effect iB the Cninese coal heavers employed around the local wharves. The estimable people in question, spite of all that
rain, cold, sleet and biting wind can do,
atill preserve an unshaken equanimity.
The protests of those citizens who have
business at the Post Office during tuc'a
weather as the present should surely move
the powers that be to provide some more
convenient means of reaching tbe building
than that of wading through an unknown
depth of slippery slush and mud. Some of
the corners near the wharves in the same
neighborhood would stand a little more
light.

Newspaper Reports.
Since The Teleoram established itself in
Hhis city it haB received the most cordial
tupport from the business community. It
isithe intention of the publishers to keep
this journal in the front ranks of the Brilian
Columbia press and thereby not only retain
the liberal patronage already given us but
I largely increase our business. No effort
will be spared to make Tiik Tkleokam a
first-claBS paper, but in order to do so we
must have the cooperation of all those
citizens in a position to give information of
interest to the public. There are a few
people in Nanaimo, however, who do not
recognize this fact as they should do, and if
occasionally they are overlooked they have
only themselves to blame. How is a newspaper to be expected to report
an event when it has not received the slightest intimation that
it is going to occur': Most people ere
always anxious to Bee reports of entertainments and other matters appear in the newspapers, but if the papers do not receive an
invitation to be present, so as to be able to
give a proper repott, the managers of these
entertainments and otheis concerned must
expect to be disappointed. So far aB Tim
TeleiiBAM ia concerned, with one or two
exceptions, it haB had little to complain of j
but we wish it to be distinctly understood
that we do not propose to do any key-hole
reporting. We shall always be pleaBed to
tend reporters to entertainments or after
news of any kind outside the regular publio
news channels, provided we are given an opportunity to do so.

A QUEER CASE.
Mr. R. Hilbert of tho Lion House  Does
Some Mysterious Business.
A great deal of interest has recently been
taken in the movements of Mr. Richard
Hilbert of the Lion House boot k shoe
store. His mysterious manner and the way
in wbioh he approached people generally
led those who came in contact with him to
suspect that something was shortly going to
happen. One day hb became suddenly possessed of tbe idea that he should do something and to the amazement of everyone he
began to give his stock away. Not satisfied
with this way of doing things he called in
Mr. Dempster, his next door neighbor and
told that gentleman that he bad made up
bis mind to clean out his store and asked
him if he would assist him. Mr. Dempster
replied yes, and at once began. Boots, shoes
and clothing were soon being carried out in
cart loads. Those who would not pay a fair
price for them got them for almost nothing
until there was nothing left to give or sell.
Even this did uot change the mysterious
conduct of Mr. Hilbert, and today is the
first occasion that he has felt it his duly to
make a proper explanation which will bo
found at the bottom of the third page of
this paper. It is perhaps themost astonishing declaration that Mr. Hilbert has ever
made.
The Windsor House cuisine is excellent.
