Immediate Outlook  in  Mining Affected
by Coal  Strike���Stocks Continue  Steady.
The mining situation for the week
has been dominated by the strike at
Fernie, The proepeot has lieen railier
brightened by the hope of intervention by John Mitchell, president ot the
V. M. W. of A., the organization to
which the strikers belong.
In the meantime, there is uncertainty. The Trail planl is closed down,
w-ith the exception of the lead stack,
and the date at which the Hall Mines
smelter must decline to receive further shipments of ore is measurably
nearer than It was a week ago.
The direct ri'Bult of such uncertainty Is the cessation of material reduction of activity at many mines.
In spite of a prospective period of
idleness the outlook is considered
brighter than ever. The new districts
isi sheep Creek and I'oplar and Rapid
Creeks are being steadily worked with
must encouraging returns.
Silverton has again become a centre
of activity, due chieriy to the excellent
results obtained at the Vancouver
The Ymir mine ls still Improving.
Its circumstances permit ot the substitution id wood ror coal without very

Attorney    General    of   Manitoba    Describes British Columbia Claims.
Hon. Colin ll. Campbell, attorney
general of Manitoba, on his return to
Winnipeg after the conference of premiers, was asked: "What Is your opinion or Mr. McHrlde and his contentions?"
"Mr. McHrlde very ably, forcibly
and firmly presented tbe claims or his
province, and everyone wns surprised
by his ability and the strength of his
position, shown by ihe fact lhat after
some days of struggle the Dominion
authorities were forced lo admit that
British Columbia did possess such
claims aa were decidedly exceptional
and for whicli special treatment was
heeded and should lie accorded. When
the conference was opened lhe rest of
the provinces did not think thai they
Bhould deal with British Columbia's
claims, bul upon Sir Wilfrid l_urier's
reqnesl they took it up. Ii was quite
apparent, ho_ever, that the amount
that the olher provinces were willing
to recommend was so small thai it
would be of little or no uss- and would
mil be regarded liy British Columbia
as in any degree commensurate with
Its claims. Such a small amount as
tin' others were willing to recommend
would practically do very little toward
overcoming the physical disabilities
under which British Columbia labors."
Earl Examines College.
Winnipeg. Oct. 20.���His excellency
Karl Grey left the city last evening
for the East. His excellency was accompanied by Lord Howlck and his
private secretary, M. Sladden. Yesterday his excellency visited the provincial agricultural college and was
shown through the building and over
the farm by Sir Daniel McMillan and
Hon. Hoberl Rogers. The earl showed
a keen interest in the various depart
ments and asked many questions concerning dairying and its ruture in this
country. An automobile conveyed tlie
party to and from St. Charles.

fishing vessels are now taking herring
from the Bay of Islands, securing 75

agents of the American vessels. They
left the Newfoundland shores yester-
dny nnd proceeded beyond the three-

American vessels. Herring are fairly
plentiful in the Inlets along the coast.

Tramway  Returns    Show    an  Average
Weekly  Increase of $50���Minimum
Loss on Year's Operations.
Tiu> receipt* from iho tramway ��.vp-
ten for thi- wivk ending Ootober U
were $188,76, as against I7-M0 ror ihe
corresponding week of iant year. The
retutua for the year to date are
f_,V.U.80, u-Kulnst $-1580.70 to the same
date laat year, a gain of $1011.10 for
nine and a half months, in spile of
about two months' Interruption of the
Conditions will probably not ohange
materially between now and the end
of the year, unless an unusually early
hookey and Skating season ' sliould
swell   the  December  receipts.
Leaving that possibility out or the
question the present probabilities are
Ihnt the year's receipts will amounl to
about $8000 instead of the estimated
$8000, The expense of operation will
ba aboul $0000. The cily's loss will
therefore be 40 per cent, of $1000. or
$4t��o, in addition to the cost Incurred

Agftlnsl even this small loss* the city

of advertising franchises.
The salient point, however, in a comparison of returns for 1905 and 1006 is
that there has been mi average tn-

To Meet in Conflict With
Will  Require Catholic  Orders  to
Submit to Civil and State|
Madrid, Oct. 20.���It Is safe to assert
that no session of the Spanish Cortes
in recent years has attracted the attention that will center in the deliberations and actions of the session
which will be brought lo a focus at the
present session. While lhe actual
question of separation of Church aud
Siate is not to be Immediately raised
as In France, the democratic program
of the Liberals is distinctly anti-cleri-
cm and if ii progresses successfully is
sure ultimately to lead to an open
right for the severance of the ties
which bind the Vatican aud Spain,
heretofore and now the stronghold of
The points at issue between the Vatican ar.d the Spanish government are
the control of the cemelries, civil marriages, public education, and the big
ipiestion of the religions congregaliouu
not included in the concordat of 1851.
The church opposes the municipal control of cemetrios and demands that tbe
practice of ulloting portions of the
cemeteries to Spaniards aud foreigners who do not subscribe to the State
religion shall be discontinued. In respect to the questiou of civil marriages, the church wishes to have It
laid down that the civil unions between Spaniards are only legal when
celebrated arvrding to canon law,
which is absolutely opposed to the
actual system. ltefore, during and
since the revolution, civil marriages
have always been held to be legal.
Further, marriages between Catholics
in Catholic churches and chapels must
be registered in the civil registers to
have any legal validity. Consequently,
the clergy are forced either to do this
or have a civil registrar present at the
ceremony. Itirth ani deaths are also
registered by the civil authorities with
wonderfully Improved results as far as
the preparation of statistics and proper
maintenance of records are concerned.
The attitude of the government toward the religious orders is shown in
the new law of association, which will
contain the following provisions: No
religious order shall he established
without the authorization of parliament. The State shall accord support
to any member of a religious order
desiring to renounce the vows taken.
The minister of justice Is empowered
to withdraw the authorization of any
religious order found to be Inimical to
morality or public tranquility. The
cabinet shall forthwith examine the
authorizations previously granted to religious orders and cancel those which
are illegal. Religious orders whose
membera are foreigners, or whose directors reside abroad, shall be dissolved. The authorities are empowered to
enter monasteries without ecclesiastical sanction. Religious orders shall
not he allowed to hold properly in excess of the objects for which they were
Instituted, All legacies to religious
orders, or donations to orders by living
persons, or by testimonies, or through
Intermediaries are formally prohibited.
The law of 1887 concerning the registering of religious ord irs remains in
A brief glance at the history of the
transactions between the Vattoan and
the Spanish government is essential to
a clear understanding of the present
sHualion. Up to ISON Spain tolerated
no worship hut the Catholic for Spaniards. In 1868 the revolution of Sepl-
(ember proclaimed liberty of the press,
propaganda, public meeting, education
and burial. The regime continued in
Spite of protests of the Vatican until
the end of 1X75. when tho bourbon restoration caused a reaction, religious as
well as political, which effaced tho progress and conquests of the revolution.
The constitution adopted by the Cortes
of 1870 gave back all Its rights and
privileges to the Catholic church and
re-established it as the State religion,
giving ii at the same time considerable Influence In public education.
..ver since 1876 the dynastic Liberal
cabinets have, little by little, given
back to the people with universal suffrage, tho majority of the liberties and
tights Introduced by the revohilion,
but up to the present, no ministry has
dared to attack the Constitution of
1878 as far as liberty of conscience
with the corollaries, secularisation of
public education and liberty of discussion  and criticism  are concerned.
Bill the* present cabinet of Marshal
Lopes Domingues has the unanUnoul
support of the Liberals and oven the
Republicans, In desiring clear, precise
nnd severe laws which would oblige
religious congregations ttt submit themselves to the supremacy of the civil
power.     Whether  the  Vatican   merely
wishes to fight for the re-estahllshment
of lis prerogatives, which it has allowed to fall more or less into abeyance,
or If it has a far deeper plan to precipitate the downfall of the Liberal
cabinet and tht! return of the reactionary party Is a question thnt is exciting
much   interest   In   the   political   world.
Massachusetts    Murderess    Is    Now in
Dying Condition.
Taunton, Mass, Oct. 'Ih.���Jane Top-
pan, the Lowell nur_e who killed a dozen or more persous ai various times,
is in an extremely weak condition at
the insane hospital here and her death
is believed to be a questiou of a very
short time. For a year and a half she
has refused to eat, aud her weight has
been reduced from 210 |K>und_ to 80.
it was early in \W- tbat the case
ol Jane Toppan attracted the attention
or the entire country. In November
oi the preceding year she had beeu arrested at Barnstable on a charge of
murdering oue of her woman patients.
Soon, however, the investigation of the
authorities led them to believe her
guilty of other murders. If the woman
was guilty of hair the murders of
which she was strongly suspected she
was entitled to a place in criminal annals rivalling that of H. II. Holmes,
the Chicago man who was executed
for his numerous crimes.
The specific crime for which Miss
Toppan was arrested was the poisoning of Mrs. Mary Gibbs at Cataumet,
Mass., in August, 1901. Indirectly she
was held responsible for the deaths of
three other residents of Cataumet at
about the same time. She also was
suspected of the murders of some ot
her patients In Lowell. Chicago and
other places. All of the crimes were
said to have been committed by the
use of poison. They were evidently
planned with fiendish subtlety and executed with sureness, patience and
without the shadow of remorse. Suspicion was finally awakened and bits
of evidence came out by degrees. It
was shown that all of the victims had
passed away suddenly and with the
same symptoms of poisoning. The remains of Mrs. Gibbs were exhumed
and traces of arsenic found in the
stomach. Suspicion finally pointed so
strongly to Miss Toppan that she was
arrested and held for trial. At first
Bhe took the situation quietly, but
soon after being confined In jail she
broke down and became a mental and
physical wreck. A medical commission
appointed to examine the woman declared her Insane and consequently
she escaped being tried for any of the
11 deaths alleged against her. During
the four years she has heen confined
in the Taunton asylum her condition
has grown steadily worse, and for
more than a year she has been unable
to leave her bed.
Educational Merger.
Cincinnati, Ohio. Oct. 20.���The merger of all the educational interests of

in his own words, he "came Into the

Two Old Favorites Go Under the Catholic Ban.
New York. Oct. 20.���Diahop John J.
O'Connor has sent an order to all the
Catholic pastors in the diocese of New
York warning them that the hymn,
"Nearer. My God, to Thee," must not
be sung hcrearter in any Catholic
church in Ite diocese, aud that the
hymn, "Lead, Kindly Light," may only
be sung iu a church after the service
is over, provided the pastor has given
his permission. The latter hymn was
written by Cardinal Newman before
his conversion to Catholicism. Bishop
O'Connor cites a rigid rule of the
church that nothing be sung except a
part of the liturgical service, and that
the hymns mentioned do not come under that head. ,

Steamers Wrecked,  Houses Destroyed
and Tobacco Crop  Injured���Appeal for Aid for Homeless.
Havana, Oct. 20.���Reports of the
damage done by the storm in tbe interior of the island continue to come
in slowly. The estimate of the damage done to tho tobacco crop in the
province of Pinar del Rio is not yet
fully known, but it is believed to be
great. The tobacco was planted late
this year on account of the continued
rain, hence the plants have not yet
sprouted, and a great many seeds have
have been washed out, necessitating
replanting, which will retard the crop.
The storm is reported to have been
very severe at the Vulta Abajo district of Plnar del Rio. The principal
havoc outside of Havana is reported
to have hen at Batabano, where seven men were drowned.
The American steamships Campbell
and Sara were wrecked and many
houses were destroyed, and 200 people were rendered homeless.
The mayor of Batabauo has issued a
proclamation calling for relief for the
destitute and Governor Guen/e of Havana province will proceed there t ���-
day with funds and food aai supplies.
The brunt of the storm seemrf 1o have
been sustained by the city uf Havana
and its suburbs. No more uoirhs have
lieen rejmrted.
Havana, Oct. 20,���It has now been
determined that only 24 lighters were
lost, four of which were loaded with
sugar and ihe rest with various merchandise.

Bank Discount Keeps Gold
British Financiers Cannot Ste Why
London Should Be Asked to
Finance the World.
Loudon, Oct. 20.���After the surprise
caused iu financial circles yesterday
by the exceptional increase ln the Bank
of England's rate of discount a feeling
of great relief and confidence was
manifested today, as it was believed
(hat the C per cent rate would prevent
tbe export of further gold. Neverthe-
lesB, tbe stock market this morning
continued to show much uneasiness,
but there was an absence of the fev
erlsh excitement which follows the
first announcement of Uie iniiia-ed
rate. American Securities continue-,
thetr downward movement, Uie opening prices being in marked colli'tit
to those of the opening yeit?rl_y
Union Pacific opened at 189ft, ugalrst
193%. while United Stales Steal. ��as
offered at 48%, against 50% bid jcr-
Banking circles showed notable satisfaction at the fact that the Bank of
England had been able to stop the continued heavy export of gold to tho
United States.
A British financier, discussing Ihe
situation, said today:
"The United States can hardly expect London to finance the whole
world, and we are confident that ou,r
6 per cent n te Ib a safe and permanent protection against further Inroads
on our fund of gold. There ts no
thought at present of a 7 per cent
rate, but 7 and even 8 will be adopted to protect us against abnormal depletion of the gold reserve. Therefore,
If the United States continues to require gold for the movement of the
crops, or other needs, we feel that relief should come from the other Bide.
"Secretary Shaw once before relieved the situation by decreasing funds
and we ln London cannot see why he
should sit on his gold chests while the
United States draws its needed supply
of gold from London's depleted stock."
Wrecked Bargemen Picked Up on th*
Bahama Coast.
Kew West, Fla., Oct. 20.���The Austrian steamer Jennie, Captain Duden-
ich, bound from Gulf ports for Genoa,
has called at this port to land 49 workmen picked up at sea near the Bahama coast, 170 miles from Key West.
The men were part of a force of 150
workmen belonging to barge No. 4, engaged on Eust. Coast extension work.
Most of the others were either killed
or drowned in the storm early on
Thursday. Nine other barges crowded
with workmen engaged In extension
work were at sea with barge No. 4.
There Ib no news of them and lt Is
feared all were loat.
Dudenbury. one of the engineers saved by the steamer Jennie, says the
Blorm struck them about 5 o'clock on
Thursday morning. One hour later
the houseboat went to pieces in ihe
raging sea and 30 to 40 meu were killed In the crash.
Dudenbury says nine other boats
working on the extenalon at Long Key
went to sea with barge No. 4. He has
no Intelllgnncc of their fate and fears
for their safety.
Officers of the rescuing steamer Jennie sav they heard crleB for help
Thursday night und. following thc direction of the sounds, came upon a
lot of men filiating In ilie sen cltnidng
to logs, lumber and sniill raffs. Busts
were lowered and the 49 men brought
hire  were roscued.
Three other Bleamers. using serch-
HglitB, cam.' upon the scene and assisted In saving life. How many they
rescued was not ascertained by those
aboard the steamer Jennie.
Steamers Collide.
New York. Oct. 20.���The steamer
Elrurla, while bound out of Now York

i'lu is now anchored off Tompklusvllli-.
The Minnehaha suffered no Injury, ev-
ld"ntly, us she continued on her way
and later passed out over Sandy Hook
bar. The Elrurla wus anchored near
Staten Island In a dense fog when the
Mlnnehuhn. which had been following
about 10 minutes behind, struck her
on the qunrttsr. The Mlnnehahu was
quickly slopped and somo of her boats
lowered, but there wus no danger of
any loss of life. The Minnehaha's
slern was slightly twisted, but not sufficiently damaged to delay tho ship.
She had on board 130 passengers.

lt is but reasonable to assume that in
British Columbia there are many poo*
pie, endowed with the privileges of the
franchise who are unacquainted with
the political history which distinguishes between the Liberals and the
Conservatives iu relation of these two
parties tu the province, We propose
therefore, to give as succintly as
possible, a resume of the attitude of
the two, which we shall show has been
consistently maintained sinct confed-
In 1867, when British Columbia entered confederation, it was under the
influence of a distinct pledge that a
transcontinental line of railwaj should
be constructed within a reasonable
time, set forth in tne federal agreement
which received the sanction ot the
Imperial parliament and Her lati Majesty, Queen Victoria.
While it wus recognised that the task
was a gigantic une, as early as 1872
Sir John A. Macdonald had formulated
a scheme and submitted a bill to the
house of commons at Ottawa, providing for the alienation of certain lands
and the granting of certain specific
cash bonuses to enable a company lo
finance the contracts and construct
the road. This measure was sturdily
opposed by almost every Liberal member of the opposition in every session
of the house until 1ST. when the Liberals  themselves    were    returned    to
��� ���    ���
During the four succeeding years,
under Liberal regime, nothing was
done to carry out the solemn obligation entered Into by the Dominion and
by which this province was induced
to enter confederation. It Is but fair
to state that other things than Liberal
indifference combined to hinder the
floating of the enterprise, but the records of the house during that period
show that the Liberals were never
more than lukewarm iu their desire to
fulfil the obligation Ol the terms of
In 187fe Sir John A. Macdonalr. s
party was again returned to power
with Sir John as premier and immediate steps were taken by the new government to rescuBcitate the C. P, H.
undertaking, both by himself and the
leading members of his government.
��� ���   ���
It was during this period that the
true spirit of Liberalism In its altitude
toward the west became fully revealed
Hon. (now Sir) Kdward Wake, then
leader of the opposition to Sir John,
called emergency meetings in many of
the strongest constituencies in Ontario
during the holiday season of 1S7K and
nddressed these meetings endeavoring
to prevail upon the electors to take
some steps to prevent the construction
of the C. P. R. and the carrying out
of tho project which was the chief feature tn the bargain made with Hritish
Columbia. VVe quote an extract from
a speech delivered by him In St. Lawrence hall, Toronto, during Christmas
w -k of 1878 just before the Xew Year
sessions of the house.   In it he said:
"Those of us who acted together as
the Liberal party ten years ago, opposed the terms of union with itritish
Columbia on the score of the obligations then entered Into to construct
the Canadian Pacific railway, commencing it within two years and finishing it within ten years, and we declared that a work of such magnitude,
over an unknown country ought not to
be stipulated for, either as to Its commencement or Its conclusion by any
time except that when it was possible
tc achieve it with the resources of the
country. We were overruled then as
we may be overruled now, by the majority in parliament, and the country
was in some sort bound by obligations,
the fatal extent of which is urged now
as the excuse for the bargain to which
your  assent   is  sought."
��� ���    ���
Lacking two months, that was 27
years ago. During a number of years
that succeeded, the C. P. R. was under construction and was completed In
1JS86, The next ten years of the history of the road are such as to chal-
lenge the admiration of the world. The
indomitable perseverance with which
traffic arrangements were perfected,
the strands that now constitute its
many branches woven, and the whole
system brought to a state of perfection, against universally dull limes
and depression in lhe financial markets of the world.
In 1896 the Liberal party again came
into power Just at the time when the
province uf British Columbia was he-
ginning to discover to herself and to
the world her immense and exhaustless
wealth of riches in minerals, metals,
forests, fisheries, and agricultural possibilities. Just at the time when a little help would have been of incalcu-
table value to tbe province and some
slight encouragement, from the older
and more settled portions of the Dominion, would have made this province
go ahead by leaps and bounds we are
met with the same conditions of supine indifference which was so aptly
voiced by Sir Kdward Blake  17 years
Recent students of the history of the
province know that the attitude of the
Liberal party toward British Columbia
has remained unchanged. Only by
sheer, dogged persistence was the representation in the house of commons
tttcn ased to its present number, and
11 i.- yet out of all projiortion to the
representation accorded other prov-
Lttces. Nothing but serious discontent
in the Liberal party itself gave us cabinet representation. Thc- entire history of Liberalism in Canada in its relations to British Columbia has been
such as to disgust lovers of political
justice anc] fait  play.
It is even worse In the matter of
public works. While in the Hast there
have been millions Spent in *he construction of vast public works such as
wharves and shipping facilities,
bridges, railways aud wai ���. �����* ���>_;, deepening of canals and construction of
public buildings everywhere, what Is
there in any corresponding degree to
show in British Columbia? A few of
'he stiongholds of Liberalism have had
their political reward but the country
as a whole has been neglected.
��� ���   ���
We submit that the speech of Sir
Edward Blake and the subsequent history of Liberalism in Hritish Columbia
will show that this province need never hope for a semblance of justice at
the hands of Sir Wilfrid Laurier and
lti- '���'���HeaguoH, They seem utterly mi-
able to rise to au appreciation of thc*
magnificence und importance of this
province. And if space would permit
we would carry the argument farther
and show that the action of the government  In the conference of  provin
cial premiers Is additional proof of
the genius of Liberalism and its determination to stultify British Columbia
in deference to the hidebouud partizan
prejudices of the Kast.
A local pajKT quotes approvingly an
Eastern paper which represents that
British Columbia's premier pleaded tho
poverty of this province as an excuse
for asking larger subsidies, and then
it proceeds in its own disengenuoui
way to show how the province comes
to be so  poor
It Will be news to British Columbia
people to learn that Mr. McBride asked for anything on the plea of the pOT-
eity of the province. It will be additional news to learn lhat the province
ti jtovertystricken. Never in the his*
(OH "f British Columbia has it been
so wealthy! so stable, so prosperous
and  happy  us at the present  lime.
lt was not on any of these grounds
that the claim was made for fair federal subsidies. It was simply a question of justice which was su ably argued that all except the hidebound partizan press of the Kast recognize that
fact and are prepared to admit it.
The habit of hunting around among
disgruntled newspapers for paragraphs
to suit one's own political complexion
is a growing one with some papers, but
they should try to keep somewhere
within  the  limits of truth.
