Africa Parcelled Out by England and Trance*
One of tlm mo*t important of

���-roar powers was announced last night

The consequences of this agreement
means so muoh lu the future of Africa
in the way of settlement and govern -
mont tbat their importance oan hardly
lie ovor estimated. While tlio olimata
forbids white settlement of much of
Africa, yet there are lurno elevated
plateaus, where the climate is fairly
temperate, similar to tlio hill country
of India.
Paris, May 13.���The chamber of
Deputies today approved tho Anglo-
Frauco-Niger-Nile convention.
This agreement between (-ireat Hrit-
ain and Prance disposes of hundreds
of thousands of square miles ot African
territory, and loaves only four reoog-
nized independent slates throughout
the continent. Morocco, Abyssinia,
Liberia aud the Orange Free Sc:itc.
Au important feature of the agreement
provides for an equality in the commercial treatment of the territory between Lake Touad and the Niio.

New York, May 11.��� When the 72-
hour foot race started again for today's
plugging, only 11 men came to the
scratch. Hanson remained off the
track for a short time, and thou took
up his 12 hours' walk. Hagelmau,
Oox and Glick were the three lirst in
tho race, so far as the scores went, aud
they held their positions practically
all through the day Igo had almost a
mile the best of Guerrero, but towards
evening the latter kept gaining aud
exchanged places with Igo. The rest
of the men trailed along in about
this order: Barnes, Day, Hanson,
Craig, Noremao and Gary, Glick
slowly worked np to Cox until shortly
after 8 o'clock, when he had tho latter four laps to the good.
J Just lioloi-e 10 o'ol ok Hauson
withdrew. The spectators did not
take kindly to this movement but subsequently news was brought from the
dressing room that he had collapsed
entirely. So grave was his condition
that his trainers grow alarmed, and
every method to revive him was without success. Sanson was taken to
Flower hospital. The physicians said
it was a bad case of collapse and thai
Hanson was in a serious oondition.
Between !) and 10 o'clock Gary started in to our down the lead, which
Noremao had over him. Ho succeeded
in doing this at 10 o'clook, and by
13 o'clock was almost eight miles
ahead.
At midnight the men were trailing,
with Hegelmuii in the lead, and
Glick, Oox, Tracy, Gutrrero, Igo,
Barnes, Day, Craig, Gary and Noremao strung along iu that order.
Score a 1 o'clock: Hegelnian, 281.1 ;
Glick, 268.4; Cox, 2111.1; Tracy, 868.6;
Guerrero, 2,41.1; Igo, 2!l!l: Burlier.

he had anything to say about the caso
be replied:
"Nothing whatever. I have been
trying for several years to got report ���
era to understand that I do not talk
about my affairs through the newspapers, but you all sohiii to be unable to
grasp the significance of mv declaration. "
Whilo Bishop Potter will not indicate in any way his purpose, Die growing opinion throughoul Protestut Epis-
copal oiroles is now that tbe ordination nt Dr, Brlggs will Le postponed,
The clergymen who give this out as
their opinion are careful to state that
it is nothing other than their opinions.
Due of thoso is tbe Hev, Dr. lln
Costa, who has written to Hishop Pot-
tor, stating that ho is prepared to
bring a speoifio charge against Dr.
Brlggs.

AND DELAS3IE-
Trouble in the French Chamber of Deputies-One   Member  Challenges Another,
EPISCOPAL   CLERGY     PROTEST.
Do Not Want the Rev. Dr. Briggs Ordained.
New York, May l'i.���Another formal
protest presenting tha views of a
large number of Protestant Episcopal
clergyman aginst tin proposed ordination of tho Rev. Dr. Briggs has beeu
forwarded to Bishop Potter. The protest was the outcome of a largely attended meeting of the New York Oath-
olio Olub, held at St. Ign.icius Cnurch.
and was unanimously adopted.
It was decided by the members of
the club not to give out the protest for
publication until it had reached Bis
hop Potter's hands.
It is understood, however, that the
protest calls attention to the religious
principles of Dr. Briggs, as evidenced
by his writings and by his sermons ;
points out that doubt as to his eligibility bas beon raised in many quarters ,
notes that a strong demand for an investigation as to his standing aud regularity has beeu made; suggests the
improoriety of a secret ordination and
UBks for the appointment of a oommittee to investigate the case. Otherwise,
it is declared, lhe danger of fnrthei
dissension in tho church will be great
and a  rupture may follow.
Bishop Potter still maintain** his si-
lonce iu ibe matter and no sign whatever has oome from him as to Ins  in -
Paris, May 12.���In tho course of his
speech today M. Deloasse deolan d that
in reply to his demand for reparation,
Major Gmgnet wrote regretting the
publicity givou his statement, but dc-
olining to withdraw it, M. Deloasse
then demanded that translations of
the Panizzardi telegrams should be submitted to the court of cassation iu order that that tribunal might determine
which was correct.
M. Delcasse protested against the
charge of having dictated M. Puloo-
logue's evidence, and said that he had
only desired that M. Palonlngoo prove
to tho court the good faith of the Foreign cilice (sensation).
The translation made fur the Foreign Offloe was   countersigned   by   M.
Ohanoine, Major Guigoec; and Paleo-
loguo (cheers and prolonged uproar).
It was this Statement, M. Delcasse
continued, whieh the Foreign Offloe
sent to tho Minister of War, und therefore Major Guiguot's charge was a
gratituous falsehood, ai he bad himself admitted the correctness nf the
Foreign Office's translation by countersigning it. The nationalist deputy
LasioH sent his spoonds to M Deloasse
to demand explanations of the hitter's
statement in Iho Chamber of Deputies
yesterday, with reference to M. Lasie.s
'attacks, to the effect that be spurned
tbem with his toes, although that was
more than tbey deserved.
M. Deloasse informed M, Lusic'H seconds that, ho had nothing to add to
his previous remarks and that he
declined to appoint seconds. M. Crns-
jean, a judge of the Versailles court
and an intimate friend of Major Qnig-
net, has been cited to appear hefero
the superior council of magistracy
tomorrow, to explain his participation
in the divulging of matters published
in the Petit Journal.
Ley ton, Fug., May 13.���Having recovered somewhat from the disappointment experienced in their drawn
mutch against the south of Eugland yesterday, the Australian
cricketers began a game hero against
Essex.
Essex won iho toss and the Australians, as iu the opening game had to
tnke the field. H. G. Owtus, the
Essex captain, started the baiting with
Carpenter, and an exoellent beginning
was made. The telegraph showed 60
before a wicket fell but both men left
suddenly and five wickets fell quickly.
A. P Bucau and Russell then got together and soou put a different complexion on tbe game. Lucas played
in hue steady form and he held up
his wicket to the end, wheu he was
credited with -1(1, not out. Young,
who came in as last man, put on
83, and tho innings ended with just
one run short of 200.
The Australians made a bad start,
both Iredale and Darling were quickly
disposed of. Hill and Gregory, however, made a good stand. The latter
played with great patience and allowed Bid to do most of the running.
The left hander put o.i iiii in short
order aud with Gregory 20 out and
Kelly also at the wickets, play ceased

sister union,   announoing   that  under
tin* laws governing tin* Trades
Oouncil an injustice tn the sister union
becomes the   concern    nf   all. It   is
aiinminced that if tbe gas company
cum imios Its eonr.se against organized
labor nr attempts to put non-union
plumbers  In tne plaoe nf those   who
walked out, the Trades' Council will
declare a sympathetic strike. Few
people have nny oonoeption of what
this would menu. It means that
every union workmen nn a building
iii which tho gas oompany attempted
to do any work would be called oil
and work un that bubilding would remain al a standstill until the matter
was settled. When the amount of
building now in progress Is takeu into
consideration, together with the fact
that the gas company has many contracts to supply gas pipes and fixtures
for those buildings, the matter assumes
a  serious aspect.
London, May 12.���A deputation, including tho Right Rov. Mandoll
Oreigbton, Bishop of London; Mr.
John Bums, the labor loader, aud tho
! Rev. Hugh Price Hughes aud others

today upon the Right Hon. Sir Matthew White Ridley, socretary of stato
io the home department, objecting
against seven day newspapers,
Mr. John Burus said that Sunday
was the British workingmen's treasure,
and that Sunday newspapers were unnecessary. The Hume Secretary said
thai he was entirely in sympathy with
tho deputation, but that be was afraid
that the Government could do nothing in tho matter. However, he would
fully consider tho matter. Sir Matthew White Ridley added that he
would be glad to authorize local authorities to frame by laws with the
object of discouraging Sunday editions
of newspapers.

Wall Papers    THOMSON'S
Deadman's Island isavery live question.    Before the row is over  it promises  to  disrupt   n  Government  and
relegate   au   extremely fussy mid mischievous   politician to   a shelf in   the
Ministerial      deadhouse.    The       two
strong men   of   tho  Cabinet   are   Mr.
Carter-Cotton   and   Mr.    Martin;   the
vacillating   one   is tho   Premier,   Mr.
Semlin;   the  others  are moro figure-
beads,     Mr.    Carter-Cotton   and   Mr.
Martin   are   divided   in opinion as   to
the ownership  of   Deadman's   Island.
The former thinkB   the   Province  has
the strongest  claim   to  it, and it was
through his influence   the Government
claimed the right   of  possession.    Mr.
Martin,   as   Mr    Ludgate's   solicitor,
thinks that the Dominion is the rightful owner, although ho   is careful   not
to insist too   stoutly on this   in   sight
and hearing of the  public.    His opinion is   influenced   principally   by   tbe
fact  that  his    client,   Mr.   Lndgate,
holds a lease of   the  Island   from   th?
Dominion Government, and   therefore
it is most desirable in the   interests of
both   of   them   that  the    Dominion's
claim should be recognized.    Whatever
contributes to Mr.   Martin's  gratiticn
tion is invariably the right and proper
thing,   and just   now   nothing   would
gratify him more thau   to earn a comfortable fee   by   helping to place  Mr,
Ludgato in  possession  of  Deadman's
Island as the tenant  of the  Dominion
Government.    If any one supposes this
is not reason enough   why   the   Island
should belong to the Dominion, he has
a good deal yet to   learn   of  Mr. Martin's very peculiar character.
However, the present purpose is net
to discuss the question of ownership.
*j'*hnt*is a matter for the courts, failing au agreement between the contestants themselves. It would not be surprising if in the end it wero discovered
to belong to the Admiralty, and that
neither tho Dominion nor the Province
has anything to do with it The matter is interesting, no doubt, but of
more present interest are the relations
between Mr. Carter-Cotton and Mr.
Martin which havo sprung out of it.
The Finance Minister owns a newspaper, and a very good one it is. too.
The other day n reporter on the staff
was assigned the task of interviewing
Mr. Martin in regard to certain statements that gentleman had made respecting certain proceedings taken by
Mr. Carter-Cotton. They were in
relation to a discussion of island
affairs at a r.'cent meeting of the members of the Cabinet, when these two
Ministers took opposite views, and
the Prem ier was understood afterwards
to have sided with his Chancellor
of tho Exchequer rather than with
his Lord High Chancellor. Mr. Martin was not pleasod at an instruction
giveu by Mr. Cotton as a result of tho
meeting, auu the reporter's business
was to discover what he had to say
about it.
"Mr. Cotton aud I hold opposite
views with reference to tho Island."
snid Mr, Martin, "and I claim that
he had no right to send tho telegram
ns the opinion of tho Government under these circumstances." Thut is
plain talk, espeoiallv from a Minister
of his colleague, Further on ho says :
"The ^Premier says he understood
that the Government arnvod nt an
opinion us Intimated in the telegram.
I distinctly understood several members to state that the matter would bo
laid ovor. Mr. Cotton says he has the
Premier with him, and intimates that
that is all thut is necessary to settle
it, the voice of tho whole Council not
being needed That is where I differ
with him. I cannot understand Mr.
Cotton's notion in this, which'suggests
that no others of the Executive Council
havo n voice In the matter. I have a
voice as well us the Premier or others.
I think it was entirely improper to
send the telegram as from the Government. Mr. Cotton practically admits
this by his allegation that only the
opinion of the Premier and himself
is needed in tho matter." This is positively refreshing It is believed that
spats between Minister-* hnve oc-
ourrod beforo this, but they have been
conducted in privacy and invariably
denied. Hore wo hnve tho angry
comment of one Minister openly published in tho newspaper of another.
There is no denying this, Mr Cartor-
Oottou and Mr. Martin ure fighting
like cat and dog with the trembling
Premier us a helpless spectator.    If tho

Tho Counoil  Mnk�� f-'eveml Amendments
Favorable to tbe Oity-A Fire
Instilancti Inspector.
The bargain between the street railway company's representatives mul
the Oity is uow ������im'iicall.y oompletod
as n result of iintiilii'i Unci! hour's
soKsiou yesterday afternoon, nnd when
the oommittee reported progress there
only remained two points yet to be
deoided Several questions cropped up
rather unexpectedly unil Mr. F. Pot-
ers and Oaptaiu Dnnoan wore seut for
by Mr. \V. A. Maodonald us he did
not feel authorized to grant till the
oonoesaions asked, Those preseut included Mayor Neelands, Aid. Pletoher,
Thomson, Kirltpatriok, Beer and MoKillop, the City Engineer and the
Oity Solicitor us well as the representatives of the oompany. Dr. Doolittle was also present, but seoini-
there was uo ohanoe of his coke aud
gas franchise being reaohed, he did
not stay the proceedings nut.
Wheu thu meetiuB was called to order Aid. Beer directed attention to the
state of Vernon strict between Ward
nud Hall which he snid was iii a bud
state of repair, and wns offensive m
places on nccouut of refuse being
thrown on it. It was decided thut
the grade on that portion of the rouil
should be lowered, aud the street fixed
up.
Aid. Beer proposed that tlm Council
call for tenders for siwer pipe, so thnt
should the bylaw puss, which is ubout
to be submitted to the people, they
would be in a position to go on with
the work at once. The resolution was
carried,
Aid. Thomson then introdnoted a
resolution endorsing the recent action
of the local lire insurance agents in
asking for the appointment of nn in-
snector who should be resident in
Kootenay. Attached tn the resolution
was a letter from some of the lending
fire insurance agents, pointing out the
existing inequality of rates was owing
to tbo absence of such 11,1 iuspeootor.
It was decided to send a copy of the
resolution nnd lfittfir to A, w, Roh.i of
New Westminster, secretary of tlio
Board of Underwriters.
Tho Oouncil then resolved itself into
a committee of the whole, with Aid.
McKillop iu the chair. Aid. Beer then
introduced two alternative propnssnl
on the question of| the fares to he
charged by tho street railway. One
was that wheu the Oity possesses a
population of 12,000 people, the maximum fares be reduced from 10 cents to
5 cents and 2}., cents. The other
was that when the company makes an
annual profit of 15 percent, on its
original investment,the company shall
pay the City one per cent and reduce its fares from ,*i cents ro 2}u. Several members thought the oompany
could so.iix it that their books would
never show 16 per cent profit, instancing the Government's experience with
the C. P. R, The chairman though
the only way to get at them was to
touch their press earnings. Mr. Muc-
donulil did not feel disposed to agree
to either proposition, nud sent for his
principals. The matter, however, was
not taken np again, as Aid. Beer had
to leave the council, und it will be
brought nn ou Monday afternoon.
The next thing there wns a difference
of opinion about wn sthe service to be
given. The Council wanted a certain
daily service guaranteed. Mayor
Neelands said : "We must havo a proper service. Ono car au hour is no
good, wo should have at least throe
cars an hour. If thn company expects
to make money from the start, we
should get something substantial for
onr franchise." Some of the Aldermen
thought three tars an hour all over
the system too much too ask, and Mr.
Macdouald flatly refused to consent it.
Eventually �� clause was drafted binding the company to pive a daily service of Mi cars daily both ways over
their system. Tho oompany's repro
sentatives did not specilically accept
the clause, but the matter was practically agreed to. In thiB connection it
should be remembered that when tlio
population of Nelson reaches 12,000,
the question of tlie daily service will
apaiu come before tho Council.
Another discussiou arose over the
right of the company to use earth and
rock moved by them in making their
road and "not then required'' by the
City. The City Solicitor on being appealed to gave it as his opinion that as
the clauBe stood the conmnny would
have a right to such material unless
it was needed by the City for worK in
progress at, the time. Aid. Fletcher
argued strenuously in favor of striking
out the word "then." His contention
was that the company might want to
use rock and road material which
would naturally bo used for filling up,
say, depressions iu rond close hy. It
might bo possible that for lank of
funds, or for other reasons, the work
might be deferred till the next or other
years, but that was no reason why the
City should givo way material which
was clearly near at hand, and thon
next yenr have to haul material considerable distance at* groat expense.
Thero was no intention of dealing
harshly with tho company, bnt it was
generally felt that occasions might
easily arise when the Oity would lose
n good deal of money if they were
forced to givo away all material not
needed for work actually in band,
Tho word "thei ' was eventually
struck out. A clause wns inserted
that all car shops, sheds and oflices of
the company, except the  power house,
must be located within tlie City   lim
its.
Colored end lights will be used at
night on the cms A heated discussion
thou arose when   least expecled.     Aid.
Fletcher wished to inseil a clause pro'
Viding that tin* company should no)
"utilize or dispose of power except
for the purpose of running their tramway. " Tiie Company's representatives made strenuous object ions, ami
eventually Mr. Macdonald made a
clean breast ol it. He stated that by
Iheir contract with tlie Bonnington
Falls people I hey wero obliged to buy
mure power than tbey could use, and
they wanted to sell their surplus.
Tbo mayor said they could nol think
ot it, and Aid. Thomson agreed, adding if tbe company were obliged lo
keep tbeir surplus power they would
probably run more ears.
Mr. Mnodonald wanted to know what
harm such a privilege could do the
Citv. nnd Aid. "Fletchei replied.
"There is a power company supplying you and we don'! waul tId-in lo
enter tbe City without having some
control over them, Moreover wu have
a light and power plant of onr own
in which we have invested $56,000,
and il ever we are in a position to supply electric power wo don't want you
competing with us. Dr. Doolittle
bus au application for a franchise now
before us, one of whose objects is to
supply gas for Ibe generation of power.
It would not be fair to him."
"It will iniike a difference .if thousands of dollnrs to us," ejaculated
Mr.  Macdonald.
Several members of the Council coin-
plained that tbe thing had been sprung
upon tbem, but Mr. Macdonald assured (hem that they had not thought of
the idea until Aid. Fletcher introduced
bis motion.
M lyor Neelands said it was uo good
wasting time on the question as the
Council would never consent. Mr. Peters then offered to accent the clause if
the word "utilize" wero struck out,
lint apparently they were afraid of tlie
company starting np some other industry of their own. Eventnolly the
clause was agreed to with the words
"or purposes incidental thereto" added. This permits the company to use
the power for lighting their cars and
running car rciiairing machinery
etc., otc., if they felt so disposed.

LYCEUM OO.   IN    A   NEW PLAT.
"The New Madgalen" Played   at  tlie
Opera House Last Night.
The piny last night was a new departure, and, as tho title
dealt with the temptations
tuues of a "woman with
The play is in many respects an effective one, and tbe title role affords a
splendid opportunity for tbe "emotional" actress. Last night, however,
was the first time the Lyceum Company have ever played the piece, and
this may be taken as a valid excuse
for the prominence of the prompter,
especially in the first act. With one
or two more performances the play
Will doubtless receive the polish it
uow lacks, and then the dramatization
of Wilkie Collins' well known novel
Will he a powerful addition to the repertoire of the company.
Tlie title role was taken by Miss
Clare Lawrence, whoso representation
of Portia was so much admired on
Wednesday night. The part evidently
suits Miss Lawrence, and, when the
rest of the company bave shaken down
into their respective parts, she should
make a great hit in it. As it was
she treated the audience to a very diver piece of emotional acting. Needless to say, she looked charming. Miss
Hoyden was fair as Lady Janet Roy,
aud Miss Cameron was very effective
at times as Grace Rosebery, tiiou*-li
Inst night she was too dependent on
the prompter always lo do justice to
the part. Mr. Edward D'Oize was
good as Julian Gray, but Mr, Leland
Webb was afflicted with such a bad
cold that be wus terribly handicapped.
He took the part of Horace Holm -
croft, "Magdalen's" fiance. He was
also at times too extravngant in his
grief for a broken hearted swain who
was so quickly persuaded to give up
his beloved.
Between the second and third acts
Dr. Doolittle announced that Mrs. W.
F. Brougham had consented to sing,
"The Lost Chord, " between the second and third acts of the performance
this evening, Between the first and
second acts Mr. Steiner. acempanied
on tha piano by Mr. W. F, Brougham, will play a 'cello solo. Mr.
Steiner's orchestra of seven pieces will
play at the performance tonight beginning at 8:06 p. m., so that those
fond or' music can come early and listen. The curtain rises at 8:80 p. m.
Nobody will bo permitted to enter
the theatre while the actors are on the
