country. All the Hritish Columbia members plead that they were misled by
this declaration. Yet the papers them-
selves have never been made public,
though on one occasion Sir Wilfrid announced that he was laying them upon
the tables,
Now when Mr. Borden*; Mr. Monk and
other members ask for the text of these
assurances the Premier refuses to bring
them down, stating that they are confidential' papers, and that   while negotiations are going on  they   must  be withheld.      If   they   are   confidential   paper*
which  must  not  be shown during negotiations,  what   right    has     Sir    Wilfrid
Laurier to speak of these assurances in
debate   while negotiations  ate   proceeding ?     Eiiher   the   terms   of   that   guarantee should be known  to    the    whole

to use It to bolster up their bad  . case

of breaking a solemn engagement, and
at   the   same   time     witholding     [tapers
Which   will   show   whether  the   government  itself has deceived  the house. The
sgrowing  Impression   is  that   the  paper1;
do  not  justify  sir  Wilfrid's  assuraaofl
nf last  year to the house, and  that  the
government Is wilh-holding them in the
hope that  Mr,  Lemieux may  be able to
make an arrangement for the restriction

Berlin. Dec, BO.-*-The reassembling in
this city today of the court which is
hearing the Harden -Von Mollke libel
suit, attraced a small attendance. Harden appeared to be very unwell, while
Count Von Mollke was exceedingly
cheerful and keenly interested in the
proceedings. The evidence of Professor
Schw'einger. who was physician to the-
late Prince Bismarck, was read to the
(unit. The professor declared thai he
had no ill feeling against Von Moltke,
tn spite of the Coolness existing between
the count and Mrs. Sehwelnger
the  pii'ft.^snr saldj
tury Princess of Baxo-Melnlgeu twice in
his palace in the course of visits at
Si beneek. Uu one of these occasions
the Princess talked about General Count
Wilhelm von Hoheiiau und expressed
her sorrow that "-such degeneracy should
occur in high circles."
Professor Scbwelnger considered Mrs.
Vou Elbe, the divorced wife of Count
Moltke. to be mentally sound and hot
likely to suffer illness. The pml-���-*--��� >r
hnd heard rumors ot the perversity of
Prince Phillip Zu Bhtlenberg during the
life of Bismarck, but ihe name i , Von
Moltke was never mentioned in i tan-tic

London. Dec. 30.���The body of Thomas Charles Druce tn Fflghgate cemetery
otmm exhumed ibis morning, just forty-
three years to 8 day after his buiial.
The coffin was found to contain the remains of a human body thus exploding
the romantic tales told bv Robert C.
Caldwell and others who swore during
the recent hearing of the Druce perjury case that it contained a roll of lead.
The authorities' statement follows:
"The collin was Opened, and found to
contain the body of an aged man; the
plate on the colli n bore the name of
"Thomas  Charles   Druce.' "
The scene at Highgate cemetery this
mot ning w hen the vault was opened
was remarkable; constables seemed to
spring from every where; every bush
and every tree apparently hid ah officer
of the law. All the entrances to the
cemetery were surrounded by cordons
of police. Only those persons who had
passes from the home office were admitted to the sgrounds, George Hollamby
Druce, who claims he is the rightful
heir to the Portland Dukedom and its
\ast estate, tried twice to gel Into the
cemetery but was met wilh stern refusal. It was nearly half past eleven before the coffin, the contents of which
have aroused the curiosity of the whole
world, was brought np ready for opening and Inspection. The top was quick-
1> unscrewed and the fastening of lead
cut and there was no need for the dictum of the eminent surgeon Augustus
J. Pepper, who was appointed by the
home office to carry out th'e exhumation, to assure all present that human
remains lay  in the coffin.
The vault has thus given up its secret
alter ten years of legal proceedings
which have cost a considerable fortune.
A large part of this money was obtained
from servant girls and other workers
who were induced to buy shares lu a
company formed to prosecute the claims
of George H. Druce against Uie estate
of the Duke of Portland. The charge
of perjury against Herbert Druce Is
effectually disposed of.
London, Dec. 30.���A well known Paris
scholar has n notable article on the
Indian unrest in the Calcutta Review.
In his opinion, the recent trouble in the
Punjab should be ascribed to the educated class ol Bengalis and to the Congress party.    He says:
"The Congress party is insidiously
doing its best to lower the Kuglish in
the eyes of the people of this country, who have no longer That respect
for their rulers which they had until
the present generation. The work of
the BngUsh officials under these circuin
stances has become increasingly difficult Most of the educated class of
which the Congress party is made up

under the auspices of the Men's Rescue
mission on "Cowards ai.d Heroes." The

within his knowledge. "I prayed God,"
he said, "that I might return to Ottawa,
where I could tell of tiie work of God

so well known to admirers of the prize

John Hobson Cameron was born at
Perth. Ont., April 19, 1845, and at an
early age learned the printing trade. He
Went to the front as militiaman at the
time of the Fenian raid in 1880. aud
was a member of the Red Hiver expeditionary force 1st Ontario Mines, under
Col. Wolseley.
When the force disbanded at Fort
Garry, Mr. Cameron joined the staff of
the Free Press as city editor. Old-time
new-spaper men of Manitoba remember
him as a wonder In the matter of gathering news. Indeed it was a fact that
uo matter how little waa floating about
In the way of good news, Cameron always had au Interesting local column.
He got mixed up in politics, and an election having turned out different from
What he desired, he and a few others
destroyed llle poUfaookB, It was done in
a spirit of mischief more than anything
else, bin he had to leave Winnipeg. The
others who were implicated In the poll-
h.iok matter remained in Winnipeg, aud
nothing was ever done lo them.
Mr. Cameron wus nexi heard of as
editor of the Guelph Herald. During
his conneelion with tbe Herald it gained
continental celebrity on account of the
brightness and wit of Us editorial paragraphs. The paper was .puned all over
Canada, aud in its own locality wielded
an Influence not often attained by u
county town paper. lOnrly in the '80's
the deceased was engaged by the Hamilton Spectator, and the reBult was a
paper of which the citizens of Hamilton
felt Justly proud, in 1S83 he left the
Spectator to become editor of the Mln-
m aroiis -Tribune, bul he was too old to
transplant, nnd while his ability was
esleemed at Its true value, ho never be*
came reconciled to American Insiliu
tions or American politics. He returned to lhe Spectator in the following
year and remained Its chief editor up
to the time of his death. .

Toronto, Dec. 30.���Ned Hanlan, for
four years champion oarsman. Is dying
at his home on Beverley street, ln the
house given him by the city.
The serious illness of Edward Hanlan
will be deeply regretted all over the
world. He brought honor and fame to
his natlvt; city, and no one could point
to one dishonest act on the part of the
great oarsman. For years he remained
the undisputed champion sculler of the
wortd, and while he could have made
himself rich by selling any one of the
races In which he participated he rowed
to win, and Invariably won until he met
Beech, the Australian. It is worth mentioning thnt even after being once vanquished he could never get any oarsman
to meet him on his own water In To-
ronto bay. Of late years the famous <
sculler has been engaged In training
racing crews.

Madame   Vere   Goold    Demands   Public
Execution   by   Ancient   Laws
of Monaco.
Monte Carlo, Dec. ��^.���ilrnc. V.*re
Goold has pro-duced consternation ln the
principality of Monaco by exercising an
ancient right of a condemned person
and by demanding that she be executed
in the I-Maza, which is the flower and
free decorated space in front of the
Casino at Monte Carlo.
Ever since the trial of the Goolds for
tin- murder of ICiniiia L-evin the Prince
of Monaco has dreaded some such possibility as this. The persistent policy of
the ruler hus been to keep away, to
cover up everything that might frighten
the nervous sensibilities of the patrons
Of the gumbling establishments. If it
had been possible the trial would have
been quashed and the prisoners secretly
put away.
The idea of an execution in Monte
Carlo was horrifying enough���even if
it could be conducted In privau*���and
now this woman demands to be killed
In public and that the guillotine be set
up In front of the I'alace de Chance.
I loth she and her husband have appealed Bgalnst their sentences���his that
of hard labor for life and hers that of
the headsman���and in view of the woman's plea for a final public appearance
lt Is quite possible the appeal will be
Meauwtiile the Goolds are locked up
in the Monaco prison. Goold has sent
a farewell message to his friends in
Ireland and Kngiand, and will be shlp-
iHfd to Cayenne, French Guiana, if the
sentence be carried out. He has also
sent loving messages to the cell of his
wife, but she refuses to read them and
declares that she she wants nothing
more to do with  "that   lazy drunkard.''
Mine. Goold Is defiant in everything.
"I will go to the executioner," she has
aaid, "with my head high. AU the women want to see ine on my knees, but
they  wou't."

that iM.ndholders will receive nearly

the sum representing the end of the
year Interest and dividend disbursement
of the great corporations. Statistics
show that more money will he paid out
lo holders of stocks and bonds this end
of the year than ever before. Abonl
1105.01,0.000 is being paid out to holders
of bonds, while the dividend paying
stocks   will   distribute $77,000,000.
The fact thai oopper companies hav?
been forced to cut down their dividends
and many railroad and industrial concerns have been forced 10 either pay in
scrip or reduce their dividends hap
not changed the general total of dividend and interest payments. The reason for this state of affairs Is due to the
larger capitalizations and bonded obligations, all of which have been flouted
this year or In the latter part of 1906.
