The substance of the two petitlona

"That Whereas the revenue from the

of minerals nnd tiniher deducted, is
sure to prove louilly tnadotpiule to pro

"Whereas till- experience of ail Other
provincial and stale universities hau
been thai there in an Inevitable, con-
linuouH and growing demand for more
buildings ami equipment, and
"Whereas any grant of land for tho
puriH.se of endowment would entail tar
k'BB Interference with the development
ami Battlement of the province now than
a' any future time. and. further, might
easily In- made now without any loss to
the annual revenues of the province.
"Therefore, the members of this Dni*
varsity Club respectfully urge the government of British Coluniliia in make
provision for additional endowment by
setting aside a much larger grant at the
next session of the legislature.
"Thin University cluh respectfully
urges the governmenl or liritish Columbia to appoint at tin next session of the

Provincial Dnlverelty; such hoard of
governors to have power to select a

Washington, D. C, Nov. 28���When
the Hepubllcan national committo
meets in this city one week from today it will he to decide U]*on the time
and place for holding the fourteenth national convention of the party. Times
and conditions have changed wonderfully since the Republicans held their
first national convention in Philadelphia a little over a half century ago.
The delegates were not cliosen then
on the busiB of representation which
now prevails. Kor uiBlance, in the convention of 1851S New York had Ut, delegates. Pennsylvania 81, Ohio 00. ln
the convention next year New York will
have only 78 delegates, Pennsylvania
(is. Ohio 40.
in the first national convention of the
Republican party all of the distinctively northern states were repreaented,
and. In addition, Delaware, Maryland,
Virginia aud Kentucky. In the party's
fourteenth national convention, which
will be held next June, every stute and
territory of the Union will be represented.
in 187,(1 the popular vole for the Republican caudidute lor President, John
C. Fremont ol California, was 1,:141.-
204. iu 1004 Mr. Boosevel! received
7,628,488. The state of New York has
more voters now of ull parties than
the entile Republican vote of fifty years
The first national convention of tha
Republican party declared iu its platform that "the maintenance of the pri-
clples promulgated in the Declaration
of Independence and embodied In the
Federal Constitution is essential lo the
preservation of our republican Institutions." It rebuked the Democratic
party for the latter's attitude toward
Cuba, aud UBserted that "highwayman's
plea that might makes right' embodied
in the Ostein! Circular, would bring
shame aud dishonor upon any Government or people that gave It their sanction." Since these declarations were
made the United States, under Repuhll
can adiuinistrationB, has acquired
Philippines and Porto Hico���nud
Declaration of Independence and the
denunciation of "the highwayman's
plea" no longer figure in Republican
In the firBt national convention of the
Republican pany there were two candidates Ior the Presidential nomination���
Jhon C. Fremont of California and
John McI.oun of Ohio. McLean was
the preference of the old-time Whigs
who had identified themselves with
the Republican party. He was tainted
with "Know-Nothingisni." however, and
that was the prime cause of his defeat.
When the party held Its second convention, in Chicago, In 18011, the nomination of William H. Seward of New-
York aeemed a forgone conclusion, hut
tlie honor was bestowed on Abraham
Lincoln, who was renominated In 1804
by tlie ilultimoro convention. Gen. U.
S. Grant was .nominated, practically
Without a dlBsenttng voice, at the Chicago convention of 1808, and renomin
nted unanimously at the Philadelphia
convention ln 1872. In the convention
of 1870, at Cincinnati. James G. malm-
led all other candidates for the nomination ror six I.allots. but was defeated
on the seventh by Rutherford It. Hayes.
On the first ballot Mr. lilaine hud 285
voles which were increased to 1151 on
the seventh. Gen. HayeB had only 61
votes on the first ballot und list on the
sixth. On the seventh ballot he recelv-
ed 384 votes, or Bix more than were necessary to a choice, lt was Blaine

stronger than Maine's "magnetic states
In the convention of 1880, at Chicago
the "old guard" made a desperate effort
to nominate Gen. Grant for a third term.
The general led all other candidates lor
thirty-live ballots. The unit rule received Its death blow In this convention,
and on tlie thirty-sixth ballot James A.
Garfield was nominated. Ulalne was
again a candidate, and received almost
as many votes up to the fifty-fifth ballot as Gen. Grant. Then the "dark

throne wus us follows:
"Honorable gentlemen of the senate,
gentlemen of the house or commons:
"Again in greeting you at a period or
your most convenience Ior the despatch
or business lt gives me great pleasure
to be able to congratulate you on the
remarkable expansion of the trade of
Canada with other countries, the total
irade of the past year far exceeding
that of anv of Its predecessors. A gratifying result of this expansion was that
the revenue of the last fiscal period of
nine months was more than sufficient
to meet the expenses of the consolidate
fund, national continental railway capital and special outlays, all expenses of
the Dominion of every kind, and leave
a balance of over three million dollars
to be applied on the reduction of the
public debt.
"The Btream of immigrants coming to
Canada continues to increase in volume, the year now drawing to a close
showing a larger number than any preceding year, and it is gratifying to observe the many coming from the Hritish
Islands. The Dominion has heen blessed
by a long series of prosperous years
and though at the present moment its
business Is being restricted by the fi
nancial stringency which prevails
throughout the world 1 feel nssured that
the unfavorable condition will be temporary and that the inimitable resources
of Canada and the world wide recognition of them give ns ample guarante.
of cntiliued material progress.
"The conference held in London in
the months of April and Mav lafit Ik--
tween the government of the United
Kingdom and the governments of the
Hritish Dominions beyond the seas satisfactorily dealt with many subjects in
which the Kniptro at large Ib interested
A copy of the minuti-B or the proceedings will he laid before you.
"Two of the ministers duly author
bred by His Majesty, foi- the purpose or
acting lu conjunction with His Muicsty's
ambsssador at Paris, have recently ne
gotiated n convention with the govern
ment of the French republic respecting
the commercial relations between Canada aud France, subject, however, t.

and the Canadian parliament A copy
or HiIh convention will he submitted to

having become involved In a contro
versy with ths government of the
United Stat.-s as lo the true meaning nl

cries, concluded In the year 1818 between the United Kingdom and Ununited States, and Canada being also
Interested In the question nt Issue, the
governmenl tins Joined With the govern
mont of Newfoundland In an ngreeinent
in refer all matters arising out of said
article lo the Hague tribunal.
"The difficulty or obtaining labor and
materials at a time of great business
activity has somewhat retarded the construction ol the Trans-continentai railway. Nevertheless great progress hus
hoc- mmade both on the eastern division
and on Ihe prairie section ot flu- west-
cm division. A section of the latter of
about two hundred and fifty miles has
been available for handling the traffic
of the present season. Contracts for
tne portion of the prnrie section weat
of Kdmonton are about to he let nn.1
Immediate steps will be taken for the
commencement of work a', both the
eastern and western ends of the mountain division. Thus ln a very short
time the whole work from Moncton to
the Pacific ocean will he under organ

"The suddeti und unexpected collapse
of the great cantilever bridge ln course
of construction across the St. Lawrence,
tn the vicinity of Quebec, may be regarded as a national calamity and the
event has evoked much sorrow for the
lives that were lost on that occasion.
A commlBBlon haB heen appointed to Inquire into the causes which led to the
disaster. When received the report of
the commission will he laid before you.
It will lie necessary to devise means for
the completion of the bridge within a
reasonable time.
"It. Is most gratifying to find that notwithstanding the large reduction of
postal rates which have been made the
revenue of the post office department
has continued to increase rapidly. The
large receipts of this branch of the government businesB will enable the department to make still larger provision
for tile extension of the postal facilities
throughout the Dominion.
"The time has arrived when public
Interest requires that telegraph and
telephone companies holding federal
charters should be placed under government control. A bill will be introduced
for that purpose.
"Gentlemen of the house of commons,

excitement, the women marched
slowly forward to the rythmical clapping of hands, chanting as they went,
to the river bank, and then, with wild
shrieks and peals ot laughter broke
their ranks and raced to bathe their
hands and faces in the water in which
the king's boat uwam.
Luanika - eldest son, Letla, immaculately clad in an English shooting
suit, was busy on the bank with a fwll-
pl*te camera. After a few minute's
panse Luanika himself stepped ashore,
habited, alas! in a grey frock coat,
pinkish trousers and a black opera hat.
The high commissioner, with Lady
Selborne and their suite, rode quietly
in from the veldt some days after
Luanika's coming. Two days later the
utllcial meeting of the white and the
black ruleit* took place in a room, open
on two sides, built of grass and reeds
enclosed by a reed fence.
In the evening the paramount chief
presented Lord Selborne with a young
hlpp'.potnmuH. This beast, which is
perfectly tame and about half grown,
had followed the chief 300 miles down
th��- river from Llnlui, taking no more
thun a passing interest in the herds of
wild "hippos" on the way. lt slept
pi'Uepl'ully through the greater part of
th'1 present at inn ceremony, and was
tlnaliy gal.untlv mounted and ridden out
of the court vard by a nieinln1!' of the

Toklo, Nov. 28.���Hon. R. Lemleux.
Canadian postmaster general and commissioner of labor, who is on a mission
concerning emigration, had an audience
today and lunched with the empress at
the palace. The usual ceremonies were
observed. The emperor was afflicted
with a cold and was unable to be present. Mr. Ishil. chief of the bureau of
commeice or the Japanese foreign office.
Is expected on the 30th of November.
After his arrival, it is believed, negotiations concerning emigration to America
will proceed more rapidly, lt is under-
tood that VlBCount Hnyashi. minister of
foreign affairs, has assured Mr. Lemleux that the Japanese government Is
prepared to meet the views of Canada
regarding limitation of immigration.
Toklo, Nov. 28.���It is understood that
the United States ambassador, Mr.
O'Brien, has officially called the attention of the Japanese government to the
great increase In the number of Japanese arriving on the Pacltg* coast. He
presented the view of theTrtate department that this cannot be considered in
accordance with the promises of the
Japanese government and therefore requested a rigid Investigation with
prompt measures to prevent the Immigration Into America of any person who
entered as a student who might afterwards become a laborer. -There ls
reason to believe that the emigration
companies in Japan are taking advantage of the laxity of inspection qualification for emigrants and becoming
bolder In practising fraud, hence a meeting of the emigration companies has
been called for December 3rd.
At the foreign office lt was stated to
a correspondent of the Associated
Press: "We are now considering the
best methods of controlling and further
limiting emigration and correcting any
mistakes which may have occurred lately. Conditions here are different from
those in America. Japanese students
who have reached a certain grade in
the Japanese schools, desiring to visit
America, register as students In good
faith. But, reaching America, they secure work to enable them to prosecute
their studies. It is quite probable that
frauds have been committe but without
the cogntzance of the government. We
are using every precaution to prevent
the recurrence of such frauds."

Moslem   Prejudice   Overcome���Induced

Disease   is   Prevalent.
Lahore, India, Nov. 28.���The efforts
of the Indian government to stamp out
the plague have up to the present time
been enormously hampered by the refusal of the Mohammedans to evacuate
in villages on the ground that they were
forbidden by tlu Koran to "Flee from
the wrath of God," and fully a quarter
of a million deaths from the plague
have been due to this belief. Hut now
the heads of the Moslem faith, urged
thereto by th*1 government, have issued.
a proclamation pointing out the unten-
ability of this Idea and declaring that
the Koran expressly enjoins Mohammedans to quit places smitten by Allah
with the disease. The government is
publishing the  proclamation widely.
London, Nov. 28���Ever since the
politicians began their annual autumn
stump campaign, the screaming Suffragettes, led by Christabelle Pankhurst
and Annie Penney, have with monotonous persistency done their utmost to
break up meetings addressed by ministers and other prominent Liberals.
Their female interruptore were all Invariably ejected, screeching and struggling in a munner which is now too
familiar to call for special notice. Their
tactics usually have led only to the
temporary stoppage of the meetings.
Sometimes, however, they have practically prevented the making of speeches.
The public is getting very weary over
th,- fooling of the Suffragettes, which
weakens instead of strengthening their
The Pankhurst gang, apparently realizing their failure, invoked local
Socialist males at Leeds to protect them
f'oin ejection from a meeting addressed
by Mr. Gladstone. The plan succeeded,
and for the first time the Pankhursts
won an overwhelming victory, completely preventing the meeting. Mr. Gladstone, his wife and others were driven
from the platform by a rush of women,
supported by their Socialist allies, and
a free light between the latter and the
Liberal audience long filled the hall
with uproar. There were many bloody
noses and black eyes given and received.
A tew nights ago the Suffragettes'
tactics were tried against themselves.
They were holding a meeting at Birmingham, where the university students
raised a pandemonium. Among their
other pranks, they threw tubes filled
with sulphuretted hydrogen, which
caused dismay among the Suffragettes.
The PankhurstItes became wildly Indignant. With red faces they raved at
the ill-mannered hoys, much to the lat-
ter'B huge and noisy delight, until a
shower of dead mice brought the speakers from the platform.

Pretended  to  Be  a Tramp. Sold  Stolen
Watch for 75 Cents and  Escaped.
Gait, Ont., Nov. 28.���The county police have a mystery on their hands.
Tuesday night two strangers were seen
ante-ling an old harn on the farm of
Willi;un LHC-B. near Sheffield. The
next morning one of them was seen
walking towards Gait, but nothing was*
seen of the second man. On going to
lhe barn shortly utter wards, a farm
hand found au open razor on the floor
flose io a pool of blood. Tracks led
from lhe barn to a ci-fllc near by. where
a torn necktie, also covered with blood,
was found, The ibeory was that some
tramp with a wounded limb had slept
in the barn, used the razor surgically,
and g<me to the creek to wash.
On Wednesday Henry Witham, a boy
residing at. Sheffield, while driving to
Gait, overtook a young man of disreputable appearance, who was hobbling
along, supporting himself with a broomstick. The stranger had previously
been In the village and begged at several houses. Witham gave the man a
HTt in his wagon and listened to a hard-
luck story. In which the nan said he
��as anxious to reach some place where
he could get money. He then offered
lhe boy a new silver watch for seventy-
five cents. The offer was promptly accepted. On arrival at Gait the stranger
boarded a car for Berlin.
On the return of young Witham the
neighbors concluded that the mysterl*
rus si ranger was either a fugitive from
Justire. or had been shot or stabbed in
S brawl. Chief Twiss of Dundas visited
