A Lady's Tribute to Firemen.
At a recent review of the Metropolitan Fire Brigade medals and certificates
were presented to a number of firemen
for conspicuous bravery or skill. The
presentations were made by Lady Arnold, who said: "I often read of heroes
of old, who, when excited by the heat of
hattit* had done brave actions which
often meant the taking away of life. It
strikes me as much more brave and
noble for a man to enter in cold blood a
house filled with fire .and suffocating
smoke to rescue a human life. ■ This is
what firemen frequently (lid and all
honor is due to them for it. Ia;:i proud
of you, and I sincerely hope tho woir^n
to whom you belong are also proud oi'
you. Lady Arnold's words might well
be written in every tire hall as they
voice the sentiments of every citizen
who appreciates the often very perilous
services of the fire brigade in "protecting
life and property,—Commercial.
No Eastern mail lias arrived in tlie
city since Thursday of last week. The
blockade on the C. P. R. still continues
und no definite word has been received
as to when thorough traffic will be resumed. This is the longest break in
communication with the East since the
C. P. R. has been in operation.
The Assizes comnien te in this city
next Tuesday.- There are quite a number of cases, including murder, rape,
and mutilating a dead body. Tbe latter
case will be of interest as it wili decide
the validity in some measure of the act
prohibiting dances and pot laches
amongst the Indians.
Mr. McManus, postmaster at North-
field sustained a fracture of the right
leg yeBterday morning caused by the
horse becoming unmanagable and" running away, overturning the cutter, and
throwing .Mr. McManus out. He was
found in an unconscious condition some
time alter the accident by a gentleman
from Wellington, who samaritan-Hke
assisted him to bis home. A medical
man was summoned who removed the
injured man to the Nanaimo Hospital,
where iie is doing as well as possible.
The Couipai ions of the Forest held a j
very successful meeting last night. One j

Mr. Pawson asked   him to go for a
doctor and a policeman.
From the appearance of the
room it seems that the deceased had
sat down in a chair near the stove
and placed the revolver to his right
twijple, and it i.« presumed that he
took aim with the assistance of a
piece of mirror which was found on
the floor. The muzzle must have
been held close to the temple, as
the appearance of the face and the
right eve indicates the presence
of powder under the skin. The
revolver was laid on 'he floor in
the pool of blood, and the bullet
was on the bench on the left of the
body, it was evidently a 32 calibre.
Mr. Pawson held the head of the
deceased until death took place
about 1:30.
Coroner Davis empare'led a jury
at 3 o'clock this afternoon, the following gentlemen answering to
their names: W. K. Leighton, (foreman), \V. E*. Norris, J. M. Rudd,

Provincial News.
The attendance at the funeral of the
late Warden Moresby on Tuesday was
very large, while the floral olierings
were more than usually abundant. For
some time before the funeral, the Warden's residence was crowded with friends
from all parts of the district, who were
anxious of having one moro look nt the
well known features of the departed. A
little after two o'clock the procession
left the house, headed by the city band,
and a cordon of twenty of the Penitentiary guards under Deputy Warden
Burke, and these assisted thc pull bearers, no hearse being used on the occas-
sion. The burial services of the Anglican Church was conducted by Rev. A.
Sliildrick at St .Mary's, Sapperton, antl
also at the grave.
All possible search is being matie for
the body of Mr. William Thompson,
who was unfortunately drowned while
trying to ford tho Sooke river in his
buggy on Monday. On Wednesday
Provincial Constable MeKenna, assisted
by one or two residents of Ihe district,
made as thorough an examination of
the scene of the accident ns was possible
while tlie Sooke river is still so high.
Mr. Thompson's overcoat, a liorse-
blanket, some books and a piece of beef
that had lieen in the buggy were found
where they hud lieen Hashed into shallow water nfter the accident. Just
above a log jam which extends from a
little island near the ford to the shore,
Constable MeKenna saw the ends of the
shafts sticking up and apparently the
body of the horse is there also, still attached to the shafts by tho harness, but
the force of water was too strong to allow them to be raised. It is possible,
too, that Mr. Thompson's botly may be
held bv the jam, or else it mny have
been carried through a small passage iu
the logs and floated down to Sooke har-
.lior. Until the water goes down it will
be impossible to make a proper examination at the logjam.
The trial of an action for breach of
promise of marriage brought against
Major Lothaire, commander of the
Congo State troops, by Madame Van-
heicks, on behalf of her daughter, has
been concluded In Brussels, thc court
granting judgement against Lothaire.
The finding of the court is thnt Lothaire
should pay Miss Vanheicks $1,800 the
the amount of expenses incurred by her
in preparing lor tho marriage, and also
pav the costs of tho suit. Madame Vanheicks sued for $10,00(1.

The Tariff Commission.
Toronto, Nov. 17.—Al the afternoon session of tbe tariff commission the dry goods men objected to
the unfair appraisements of gootls

were iu:itlicie,it and undervalued
the importers at thc larger custom
houses, where proper valuations are

They showed differences of opinion
on lhe question of Canadian manufacture, but particularly asked for
fewer custom houses and more
efficient ollicers.
Tbe crockery men had the same
kind of complaint to make, and
also recommended an all-round
duty on their imports and no reduction ur increase of the present

accomplish this. The vinegar

Constitution. Here is the proposition:    We, tbe   whole  people   ol
the I'nited States, give the land ils
value. All land not being of the
same productiveness or desirability, it would be manifestly unjust,
to give one individual a certain
very desirable or productive spot
antl another individual a very undesirable or unproductive spot
without in some way equalizing
this difference. This is, what we
propose tu do, Kach of, these pieces
uf land will have its respective
value. Suppose the better location
is worth $50,000, and the person

they also rob the community ofthe

seems to me to be a clear-cut business view of tlie whole matter.
Under  the   present   system   the
government (the community as a
'whole) creates something li <e two
billions of land values every  year,
and instead of using this themselves
,1'iey hand it over   to  a   few  indi-
.viduals to be used as these   few individuals please, and for  tlieir own
personal use; and these persons do
not even condescend to spend it in
the United States, but  go to some
foreign country, and hobnob with
Rome lord, or buy  some   duke or
earl, with a worn-out  constitution
and title, for their daughter.
Is there anything more senseless
.than for the whole people to create
this enormous land value and then
to give it away? If we are such a
charitable people, why do we not
trive it to tlie needy, who would use
it to some advantage to themselves
and the community in which they
'live? Why not take this value and

The Behring Sea claims commission did not sit on Monday,

along the C. P. R. The American party are all at the Drtard,
the greater number of them arriving on Saturday night. Judge
"W. L. Putnam, of the United

the ladies, being present, and

Beique, Q.C.; Sir Chas. H. Tupper and Mr. E. V. Bodwell, of
the Canadian counsel. The ceremony was a very simple one,
Judge Putnam taking a short

A despatch from Constantinople says: Signor Punsu, Italian
embassador, ■ had an audience
with the Sultan. He strongly
insisted upon the execution of
■the proposed reforms. The Sultan declared they would be executed. Signor Punsa pointed
out that it was not sufficient to
publish the reforms; it was
necessary to carry them out.
The Italian ambassador also insisted upon the punishment by
court martial of Col. Mazehun
Bey, who is held responsible for
the murder of Father Sulvator.
The London Daily Mail's Constantinople correspondent asserts that the Sult-m's concessions of reform to M. Cambon,
the French Ambassador, is a
mere financial comedy with a
view of raising a loan in Paris to
avert the otherwise inevitable
.financial crisis.
Evading the Exclusion Act.
The report that Chinese are
being pulled across the St. Lawrence river by means of a rope
-stretched from Iroquois to
Hogansburg, thus gaining an
entrance to the "land of the free
and the home of the brave," in
spite of the law, is being widely
circulated, says the Norwood,
* N.Y., News. The lack of particulars has led people to think
that it is no trick at all for the
almond-eyed Celestial to do the
rope passage, but people who are
acquainted with the old St. Lawrence know that it takes lots of
nerve to hang on to a rope and
be dragged from Iroquois to
Hogansburg in the witching
hours of night.
The strong current ofthe river
makes it impossible to pull
straight across, consequently
Hogansburg is somewhat down
the river from Iroquois, and in
order to keep the rope in place it
has to run through several mode
pulleys anchored on shoaling
points. These pulleys are a
source of annoyance to the pus-
seiiger, and, as it is impossible

were prosecuted about the same
time for the same charge. The
cases were heard in the U. S.
District court at Alaska, and
vessels and cargo were condemned. The Coquitlam was
released on bonds being given
for over $100,000, and an appeal
wus taken iu her cuse to the Circuit Court of Appeuls at Sun
Francisco. Argument was heard
there on tho case about a year
ago. Afterwards the question
was raised as to the jurisdiction
of the Circuit Court of Appeals
of Sun Francisco to hear appeals
from the District court of Alaska
in admiralty matters. This was
referred to the Supreme court of
the United States at Washington, which about six months ago
decided that the Circuit Court
of Appeals had jurisdiction.
The judgment of the Circuit
Court of Appeals handed down
ou Monday lust at San Francisco
has reversed the decision of the
District court of Alaska, aud
dismissed the libel against ship
and cargo-.
The principal persons interested in Victoria are Messrs. R.
P. Rithet & Co., Ltd., Thomas
Earle and William Munsie, together with several others, owners of cargo, comprising some
6,000 fur seal skins and a quantity of merchandise.
The seal skins were transferred
from various sealing schooners to
the Coquitlam off Afognak island
and other places, and some goods
had also been transferred by the
Coquitlam. It was in respect of
these transfers that .the vessel was
seized and proceeded against by the
United States. Counsel for the
owners of cargo in the District
Court at Alaska and also in the
Court of Appeals at San Francisco
was Mr. E. O, Hughes of Seattle;
and the solicitor for the owners
here was Mr. A. L. Belyea. Claims
for damages for illegal seizure will
undoubtedlp be made also against
the United States by those interested.
Archbishop Ireland Warned.
Rome, Nov. 16.—It is semi-offi-
cially stated at the Vatican that
tho reports circulated in the United
States of the intention of the Pope
to remove Archbishop Ireland, oi
St. Paul, are "pure inventions."
Archbishop Ireland has simply been
advised from an unauthorized quarter to moderate his attitude, to avoid
irritating discussions, and to conform his conduct to the instructions
of the Holy See, especially as regards education, social questions
and the favor to be accorded to religious bodies.
The Italia says the rumors of the
deposition of Archbishop Ireland
from the diocese of St. Paul are evidently untrue, because under the
present pontiff there has only been
a single deposition, which was that
of Bishop Tourney. The Italic,
however, suufw-tn as possible that,
if Archbishop Ireland committed
further imprudences, the irritation
of the Vatican would be bo great
that he might he invited to resign.
Charles Spence, • well-known personality  of  Winnipeg, dropped dead
^London, Nov. 141.• An enormous
.concourse, including the Duke of
Teek and Prince Edward and Har-
man of JSaxe Weimar, witnessed
the start on Saturday Iron the Hotel Metropole of about sixty motors
and cycles under tbe auspices of
the Motor Car Club in the inaugural journey from London to
Brighton, this being the date when
the new Highways Act came into
force. The start was preceded by
a breakfast at the Metropole, after
which the chairman, the Earl of
VVinchelsea, amid loud cheers, tore
up the red flag, which according to
law, it has hitherto beon necessary
to have carried in front of road
motors. A numlier of the motor
cars are electric, others belong to
the Britannia's Company system
and to the great wheel and carriage company. The British motor syndicate which has acquired
all the principal patents for Great
Britain was represented by over a
dozen cars and vans, and the Pennington carriages, of American invention, also entered vehicles. The
start was made from the hotel at
10:30 a.m. Luncheon will be
served en route at Reigate, and
upon arrival at Brighton a dinner
will be served at the Hotel Metro-
pole. A race cf exciting proportions is anticipated. The police
arrangements for the race are per
feet and the event attracted widespread attention. The first motor
which reached Three Bridges knocked down a little girl. She was seriously injured. Iluryee's American
motor was the first to arrive at
Brighton, reaching that place in
four hours.

The Globe says: "Probably the
biggest mining transaction Canada
has yet seen is understood to have
been concluded within the last few
days. By it the representative of
Barney Barnato, of Johannesburg
fame, have secured control of practically all the mining properties in
the Lake of the Woods and Rainy
River districts, and within the next
thirty days will have paid for options on properties valued at a
quarter of a million dollars. The
options extend over a sufficient
period of time to enable Ihem to do
development work next spring. Por
several weeks J. 1). Warren and J.
Cohen have been quietly at work
investigating mining properties in
the district referred to and securing options on them. Until a few
days ago it was not known whom
they reprssented. Warren, who
comes from New York, was supposed to represent American capitalists, hut it is now understood he
has been working with Cohen, who
was with Barnato in the Rand."

Quebec, Nov. 17.—The sixth
session of the eighth legislature of
Quel-ec waa opened this afternoon
by the Lieutenant-Governor with
the usual ceremonies. The government propose to repeal the lax hill,
to convert the entire debt of tne
province, to demand an increase of
federal subsidy in proportion to the
increase in population; to give increased aid to colonization, and to
convert the land subsidies of railways into cash upon conditions
mutually agreeable to the government and companies.

A Voting Machine.
An experiment inthe way of voting by machinery was tried in
Rochester, N.Y., at the late presi-
dental election. The contrivance
employed has a key-board, on
which appears the names of the
candidates in separate columns,
each column representing a com-
pie party ticket. If the voter
wishes to vote "the whole ticket"
he simply presses the buttton at
the top of the column and the trick
is done. The pressing of tha* one
button locks up the machine and
no more voting can be done by that
voter. If the voter, on the other
hand, wishes to split his vote or
"scratch" any portion of the
party ticket, he must press a button opposite the name of each candidate he wishes to vote for. By
this action he locks up all the other
names and prevents his vote being
recorded for a second candidate for
the one office. According to the
Rochester papers the machine
worked successfully, there being but
a few minor mishaps, due chiefly
to want ot confidence on the part
of voters. One of the papers records the fact that the return of the
polling was received from one of
the districts just one minute after
the polls closed, at 5 o'clock, and
at 5:50 the whole 70 districts oi tbe
city of Rochester had been heard
from. This was remarkably rapid
work, considering the complicated
voting that had to be done. Many
men, it is said, took no more than
ten seconds to vote. Of course these
were men who voted the whole
ticket on either side, as the majority
were sure to do.
Hon. C. Sifton was duly sworn in as a
member of the Privy Council antl Minister of the Interior on Tuesday. Sir
Henry Strong, Deputy Governor, administered the oaths of oHicp. Tho ceremony took place in the Premier's office,
Messrs. Laurier, Seo tl, and Mulock being
present Mr. Sifton is now on his way
bauk to Brandon to prepare for the election.

Yet circumstances may so arise j
as to demand a complete ami absolute change. Desperate diseases]
require desperate remedies. The
most conservative of men may
loudly demand the most radical of
changes, And when a government
has given proof of its subserviency
to monopoly: has recklessly played

away the funds entrusted to it in

country; has failed to grasp the
■leeds and exigencies of tbe hour,
and has played at politics instead
o( evolving statesmanship, it is
surely time for the best intelligence
of our citizens lo arise and turn
that government out. Such, I believe, is the position today towards
the Turner Government.
The present Government, with
Hon. J. H. Turner as premier, is
precisely the same Government in
its aims, purposes and administration as the Government of Hon. J.
Ilohson and 11.in. Then. Davie.
Tueir policy—if they over hail any

education has been obtained in the-

voice of Jacob," although the
"hands are the hands of Esau."
A-id the faults, blunders and political crimes of the previous Governments are precisely the faults,
blunders and political crimes of the
present Government.
