Further Particulars of the
Shipwrecked Vessel.
Captain Skrimshire and His Officers Ex
oeptiona.���Orime Not Laid to Brit-
i.sh Merchant Marino.
Montreal, Quo., Sopt. 90.���-Two hundred iinil fifty scantily clad, baggage
bereft men, women and ohildien were
on board on an Intercolonial special
which steamed into Bonaveutore depot
this evening. They comprised llie
greater number of those who sailed
from Liverpool on September 14th on
board tbe Steamship Sootsinan, bound
for Montreal and were wrecked on tbe
shores of the Straits of. Belle Isle at
half past two on the morning of the
21st. It was not o. ly a tale of shipwreck they- bud to tell, lint one of
death, Buffering and pillage, for fifteen
at least of the Scotsman's passengers
perisbed, All suffered terribly from
cold and privation, and, almost the
worst horror of all the men who were
supposed to succor and assist those
committed to their care, in the hour
of need, tinned on the helpless passengers and with loaded funis and revolvers compelled them to part with their
valuables saved. Oaptain Skrimshire
and his officers were exceptions. The
pasengers ascribe to them tbe role of
hems. For the honor of the British
merchant-marine, the orime may not
be ascribed to men engaged in it, but
to u gang of wharf rats and hangers-
on picked up on the docks at Liverpool
to replace the usual crew of the Scotsman, which joined the seamen's strike
iid the other side. The list of tnose
who perished is:
First class passengers-Miss Street,
Montreal; companion to Miss Duncan;
Mrs. Childs, wile of tho state manager
of the Sign of the Cross Company:
Airs. Dickson; Mrs. Roberts and infant ; Mrs. Scott; Mrs. Robinson, wife
cf the manager of too Sun Life Company of Toronto; Miss Robinson, Mrs.
Dickinson, wife of a former editor of
Ihe Toronto Globe.
Second class passengers���Mrs. M.
Scott, Mrs. "Wutsou Mrs. Talbot, Mrs.
Tnthill, Mrs. Skeltoii, Mrs. Eliza Wat-
kins, Miss B. Weavers.
It will be noticed lira! all who perisbed are women. This is ai counted
lei hy the fact that they were'" occupants of the first boat which left the
steamer aiu-i she struck, and wbiob
was swamped before it could cot clear
of the -.Inn.
'Lin Scotsman Bailed from Liverpool
1 ��� Kept,14. The passage to tie Straits
of l-el e Isle w E > tair one, though
the green new in the stoke hole lessened tho speed of ihe ship so thai
when she reached Belle Isle she was
about a day's rnu behind hei usual
average. Entering the Straits of Hello
Lie on Thursday night, a dense fog
blanketed down on tho vessel, ami
���uncle navigation, a matter of great
caution at all times in tho straits, a
precarious undertaking, The speed ol
the ship was reduced anil sho fell her
way in. At 2 o'clock there was a
s nick underneath the keel of the vessel,
lollowed by another and another. The
passengers were asleep in their berths
and all w, re uvakenod by the shocks,
i in decks, the thick banks of   fog shut
out the sight of the shoie. Passengers
ran hither and thither, lot Cnptnin
Skirmshire and his officers went
among them calming their fears. A
superficial examination of the ship told
the captain that she would be a total
wreck,and that she must be abandoned
in once. A port life boat was lowered,
and in this many of tho women and
children were placed. Hardly was it
clear of the ship when it capsized,
throning tho occupants into the
water. Those who perished were in
this boat. Some were saved, for the
ship had listed to port and several of
the ladies wore washed back on the
'hick. One lady clung to a rnpn for
two hours beforo being rescue I, the
skin being torn from her hands.
Meanwhile disgraceful scenes were
being enaoted on board. Hardly bad
I he vessel struck before the men from
���he stoke bole rushed into the nabins,
and slitting open valises and hags with
their knives, took nil the iiiluablcs
they could .Jay bunds on. Several of
I hem fired shotguns and tried to force
men to leave their cabins,
It is sniri that some of the slcnrage
passengers found ihe firemen looting
rue baggage ot tho first class passen-
B'rs. In more than one instance rings
were torn from the fingors of fainting
anil dying women. Oaptain Skrim-
sunn and his officers, liusv in caring
tor the safety of the passengers, hud DO
'',""' to interfere with the vandals.
Jlien morning came ft was found that
'"n Scotsman lay close in shore alongside a cliff fully n thousand feet high.
A second bout load of women and
I'lildren which had been sent off was
'���lined back and tho passengers trim-
snipped to the rocks alongside the ship.
Until (1::��) tbe officers and somu of the
crew of the Scotsman worked unceasingly iu petting the passengers ashore,
and when darkness and a heavy fog set
in all were safe on tbe rooks. But hera
new dangers of starvation faced them.
The lower decks of thu shin were entirely under water. A quantity of
buisouit was carried as tore, and on
this, with a very little corned beef and
wild berries, 200 people existed for
four days. Some natural springs were
found, but despite this the had condition of food and water brought on
much sickness Many of the passengers Buffered from the exposure. After
much difficulty, some overcoats and
shawls were sen-jred for the women,
nearly every one of whom had left the
ship in her night clothes. The passengers weie obliged to climb ud a rooky
cliff nearly 800 feet, high before they
could find a place largo enough to rest.
Here they staved on the hare rock for
four days and nights. The first day
thev had absolutely no shelter, hut on
Saturday the Captain sent up some
t rpaiilin and blankets. Tnese were
acceptable, as it had rained all night
and was most bitterly cold. A number
of passengers attempted to reach the
light house, which was about eight
miles away, us thoorow flys. To do
this it wan necessary to climb about
1,200 feet higher before a practicable
oath could he reached, and there the
difficulties hud onlv begun. The path
is rocky ami uneven, and is crossed by
bugh cleffH and gullies, which are very
deep. Altogether the distance by land
must have been over eight miles, and
one' gentleman took eleven bonrs to
reach it, and rested only half an hour
on tho way. It was not until tbe 36th
that the Moutford came along and was
signalled by the Belle Isle lighthouse.
A member of the Scotsman's passengers had walked there from the wreck.
8 miles as the crow Hies, but nearly 10
by the road. After bringing these
poeple on hoard, she proceeded to
whore the Scotsman lay. The weather
was blight and clear. As soon as practicable tho boats were launched and the
work began. The Moutford took two
hundred and fifty of the passengers,
and tbe steamship Grecian, which
soon after came in sight, took the remainder, excepting four who decided
to return to England in the steamship
Monterey, the next vessel to appear.
Forty five of the crew also went on
(his boat.
Skagway, Sept. 22, via Seattle, Sept
20.���The stage running between Atlin
and Discovery was held up by a lone
highwayman Tuesday nignt. There
were nine passengers, but none curriod
much money or valuables, aud the
plunder secured was light. The robber
escaped without being molested.
The highwayman hailed the stage,
saving he wanted to ride, and when it
halted he covered the driver and passengers, telliug them if they wanted
to save their lives they would give up
their money.
Cascade, B. C., Sept. 89.���Word lias
been received here of a fire which
occurred a few days ago at the little
town of Brooklyn, on lower Arrow
Lake. For some months past the town
has consisted only of one hotel and a
general store, in which latter the post-
offlce was located. There was not an
occupant for the dozens of empty
buildinps, A few nights ago fire broke
out in the general merchandise store
of B. I'lirris & Co. ,1 t. Maguey, who
was in charge and acted as postmaster,
had barely time to Hive ihe posinffjae
ontfit, the contents of tho store being
a total loss. Several other light and
Inflammable structures on tho same
block also burned down before Hip, lire
spent itself. There was a sin.ill insurance on tho Parris stock.
Madrid, Sept. 20.���The Spanish Cabinet will resign tomorrow, as a result
of irreconcilable tliferenoes among tho
ministers regarding proposals for national defense. The decision was
taken at the Cabinet council tonight.
The chief subject under consideration
was the scheme of the Minister of War
Lieutenant General Polavie.pi for an
extraordinary credit to he used iu increasing and strengthening frontier
fortifications The Minister of Finance, Senor Villtwerdo, was unable to
agree with the suggestions of General
l'ohiviejn, and a ministerial crisis fol
The Premier, Senor Silvela, will
therefore go tomorrow to San Sebastian to place the resignation of the entire cabinet iu tho hands of the Cjnccu
Washington, Sept. 2!).���Gen. Otis
cabled today the following report of
the capture of Borneo. Law ton's
troops at Calutupit nnd San Fernando
where concentration is taking place,
offered to cover the country of Mexico,
Bacolor and Santa Rica. Gen. Mao-
Arthnr is ordered to take bis troops
and clear the country west and iu the
vicinity of Poraco, which be did yes-
terduy, advancing on Porao at an early
hour with tho Oih infantry and lifltn
volunteers, capturing Porao and driving the enemy north. Wheaton at
Angeles kept hack the enemy ou his
north and moved tho force westward to
intercept the Pnrao insurgents, but
they retreated hy mountain roads, resulting in clearing the Country preparatory to future operations Our casualties at Porno aro five wounded. Wheaton does not report any casualties.
Captured one officer and several men,
some 20 of  the enemy being killed."
The Export of Live Stock, Grain and Provisions Prohibited.
Boers Say They Will Walk Over the Government Troops

Johannesburg, Sept. ail.���There is
great excitement here, owing to orders
to tbe Commanders to take tbe field.
Part of the Johannesburg corps will
assemble today. Dispatches have gone
to the frontier.
Melbourne, Victoria Sept. 29. ���A
conference of the military command
auts of all the Colonies except New
Zealand is sitting here to discuss the
equipment and despatch of an Australian force to South Africa. Volunteers
are coming forward largely from all
the Colonies. About 1,400 Victorians
have already volunteered.
Africa about Oct her 7lh, with General Sir Redvera Holler. There appears
to bo unusual excitement in the Admiralty department. Mr. Georga J.
Qoschen, First Lord of the Admiralty,
was busily engaged there for the great-
tr part cf the day. It is rumored that
unexpected complications havo arisen
and that extensive preparations are to
be mafle to guard acainst contingencies.
Capetown, Sept. 2fl.���A despatch
from Qlenooe, Natal, says:
"Telegraphic communication between here and the Transvaal is temporarily interrupted. It is snpposed to
nn7e been caused by a thunder storm.
Ihe camp is free from sickness and
patrols are tegular, especially in the
direction of Dejagers drift on the
Buffalo River, where the Boers are reported to be laagered. Tho greatest
enthusiasm pievailn The second movement of troops from Lady-smith to
Dundee was carefully ooncealod and
expeditiously carried out. The towns-
ueople only know of the niauoeuver by
the presence of troops. It is stated
that Burghers havo requested permission to cither return to their farms or
raid Natal. A telegram from Volksrast
says it is repotted that the Boers intend to take up a position at Schinons
Negte, falling back of Laings Neck if
forced to do so.
London, Sept. 29.���It was said this
evening the batch of South Africa telegrams received at the Colonial Olfice
tin's morning did not contain President
Krnger's reply,as supposed,but referred
Io others matters. The Cabinet therefore was unable to discuss the reply.
Significance is attached to the fact that
Mr. A. J. Balfour was iu conference
with Lord Rothschilds at Downing
street r,t II o'clock.
Loudon, Sept. 89.���The Capetown
correspondent of The Times cables:
"A l^iee State proclamation has
been issued nrobibitiug the export of
live stock, grain and provisions. Col-
iberge and other places in Cape Colon;
near the Freo State are taken to be
extremely disaffected. Tho English
are daily threatened,and some of them
are going coastwards for safety. I
havo accumulated evidence that it is
not mere street talk, but thero is a belief among tbe Dutch that the Beers
can beat England. A prominent Free
Slater says: ''You may have an even
chance with us if you send 100,000
men, not less.''
A Dutch lady of the southwest portion of  the Colony writes  to a friend :
"When Paul Kruger has beaten the
English and taken the Colony, I wonder will he conquer England too?"
London, Sopt. 21).���Indications this
livening tend to the belief that, i/i view
of the Cabinet meeting   tbe Boers will
probably commit an overt act, which
will bring on hostilities before the
assembling of Parliament. All latest
despatches from Transvaal show livli-
est activity on the part of the Burghers. Telegrams from Pretoria announce
that artillery is being rapidly loaded at
the station for tho front, and the mili-
tnry trains have preference on all lines.
The Oupo mnil is delayed in consequence of the large amount of rolling
stock reserved for tho forces A largf
party of Burghers left today for the
Natal border and another for Middh -
burg. Detachments of cyclists are being distributed among "ihe different
command) rs. It is understood ihe first
Pretoria force will leave for the eastern border tomorrow.
Commandant General Jonbert yesterday addressed a crowd or Burghers at
tbe Pretoria station. His remarks
were lustily cheered. The officers ol
tho German corps let for tho front
today, aud the Hollander corps paraded
iu the principal square of Pretoria and
saluted President Kruger.
Berlin, Sept. 29 -The Anglo-Phoebe
tendency of tie German press has in
no way abated by the knowledge that
the German Government not only does
share, but seeks, though in vain, to
repress it. The Neuste Nachrichten
"It would be more correct to speak
out frankly regarring the South African
crisis if tho question at issue ceased
long ago to be confined to tho Transvaal.
"The responsibiliy of the British
Government, will, therefore, bo all the
greater if it should stir up war. By
insisting that the Transvaal acknowledge British sozertainty Great Britain
cnts off every possible road to a peace-
fol issoe,inasmuch as the return of the
Transvnal to the convention of 1884
would be the signal for an interuaion-
al revolution."
The Vossiches Zeituug says:
"England's known might is partly
where smaller nations are concerned.
She does not recoil from outraging tbe
principles of a slate whose population
rank among tbe most civilized peoples,
an.1 wliich may be classed as of the
same stock us her own. "
London, Sept. I!0. ���In a few words,
the position as left by yesterday's Cabinet Council is that President Krngor
has been given another breathing space
nnd that another council will be called
next week, probably Tuesday, to give
final consent to the despatch which
Lord Salisbury and Mr. Chamberlain
are engaged in drafting, and which
will formulate the  British demands.
The official statement that no information will be given respecting mili
lary movements is interpreted to mean
important, movements intended. The
Government is actively chartering
transports in every direction. The ��x-
Igenoies of the transport service are
likely to necessitate tho oontinned
pieoee.enl embarkation of the troops
A London friend of President Kruger
has cabled advising him tc accept the
HritiHh proposals, as there is no desire
nn tho part of England to take away
Boer independence, nud a failure to
comply will mean war.
To this President Kruger replied:
"It.is   impossible to not on the lines
desired    without    losing    Independence. ''
London, Sept. 29.���The spenial correspondent of tho Morning Post in
Dundee, Natal, says:
"Boers are surprised at a rapid advance of the British troops over rocky

a stock jobber of this city, failed today. He had a largo amount with
Kaffirs which he bad been holding for

London, Sept. 29 ���Owing to the
reticence of the Ministers there ure various stories this evening. If is asu'it-
ed with some show of authority that
the despatches received necessitate further communications with Sir Alfred
Milner and tbe reassembluge of the
Cabinet next Tuesday, before the new

Philadelphia, Sopt. 29.���In the International orioket match between
Crince Rnn,jitsinjhrsEnglish team and
the Gentlemen of Philadelphia, which
began today on tho Morion Cricket
Club grounds nt Havorford, the locals
made a had si art, but manuged to score
a total of I nil for their first innings.
The match began under favorable auspices. The w.'uther was ideal, and
society wos present in force, the attendance numbering about. 2,500.
When stnmps were drawn tho Englishmen had scored 70 runs for a loss
of l wicket, with McLaren and Town-
send, two strong batsmen, at the wicket. Cnptaiu Mason, of tho home team,
won tbe toBs and elected to send his
team to the but. They received a setback, however, when within throw
minutes after play was begun, King
arid Thayer, two of Philadelphia's best
hats, were retired without scoring.
Wood nnd Graves, who came next, exercised greatest caution and the former
made 80 runs, the lnttor scoring 4,1 bo-
fore goin,,' out. Tho remarkable bowling of sTenop and Woods was the feature of the day. The Gentleman of
Philadelphia experienced the greatest
difllculty iu gauging tho ball, the
bowlers   being   aide-1   by   "kicking"
wicker, wnicb rendered the break of
the ball extremely uncertain. The
rapidity ol" tho Englishmen's lidding
compared with their work in the game
with the Philadelphia Colts was plainly notcied, A feiture of tbe game
was tbe fielding of Prince Runjitsini-
tin, whose accuracy in handling the
ball prevented the Philadelphias from
scoring a number of times.

Rossland, Sept. 29:���Prof. Frank
Miller will make a balloon ascension
and parachute jump at the baseball

The lioiso Statesman of a recent issue
has the following to say of this aeronaut's work :
"Porfessor Frank Miller, the aerial
wondor, has been attracting largo
crowds to the Natatorinm during the
past week. He has made three nseon-
sions iu bis balloon, and then, when
elevated to a dizzy height, well up
towards the region of the clouds, be
dropi to earth, his paruohnt.i bringing
him down safely. It is a daring feat
and skillfully performed.
"Next Saturday ho will make u
fourth ascension from the city, corner
Eighth   and Bannock streets.
"Mr. Miller has been 19 years in tho
balloon business, and this is his ninth
as a parachute jumper. If practice
makes perfect then he ought to have

it is evident from tho manner in which

Bridge Six Hours.
The Naval Parade a Gran-' Success ���Tbe
Greatest Pace nt in. the History of J'ew York-
New York, Sept 29.���No Roman
conqueror returned to his burburio
splendor: no victorious king or prinoo
coming home from a successful war
was ever received with such a magnificent ovation as overwhelmed Admiral
Dewey today us he stood on the bridge
of the Olyinpia at the head of u magnificent fleet of steel thunders of the
deep, followed by n thousand vessels of
peace, each tiered coal black with peo
lilt-, and sailed over the bright wateis
of the upper bay nnd up the brood
pathway of tho sunlit river.
The stately mausoleum of Grant, on
Riverside Drive, paid a tribute to the
memory of tho warrior with a national
salute of 21 roaring guns.
The fleet then anchored and then reviewed tho almost endless procession
of craft.
Toward the end of the parade they
became disorganized and it took hours
for the heterogeneous Hood to get by.
Darkness at last brought relief to the
tired Admiral, who had stood on tbo
bridge for six hours bowing his acknowledgements to the stentorian expression of homage. New York has
never witnessed before anything approaching this wonderful, remarkable
demonstration, The Columbian naval
parade of the dedication of Grant's
tomb and the reception of the North
Atlantic Squadron last fall, all pale before this gigantic ovation to the sailor
who in a Single morning destroyed an
enemy's fleet without a loss of a man
nor a ship. It is not beyond the mark to
say that three niilllion people viewed
ttie pageant from shore and that a
quarter of a million were afloat. People who went down the hay wore lost
in admiratnn of tbe bunting along the
water front. Uu tho East Rivet from
the bridge to tbe Buttery where the
sailing craft lay in grooves, the spars
were covered with such a mass of colors us might be compared to a maple
grown billaido'in the deen autumn.
Tbe tall spars of the Clippers were
oonspioiona for their ensigns and signals. The craft in the harbor wero
decked out from stem to stem with all
the grace aud attractiveness known to
skippers. But the display in the Fast
River was not to be compared with
that of the North River, up which the
procession was to pass, From the
breaks of every pier long ropes hung
with (lii^t-j c f every hue. and stretched
between posts nt the corners, the fronts
woe d iratfld   with the multitude of
gay devices, and there were flags on
die stalls and lines of flags above the
ropes. The vessels at their sides were
dressed from stem to taffrail and some
with flags on their yards, had their
deck houses covered. The wind shook
the ban ers from millions of windows,
porticos and even steeples, and never
perhaps in this generation did hearts
that love it bound so quickly at the
sight of the flag
Very early tho fleet of steamboats,

The Vancouver World stands to its
guns in battling for" straight party
government in this Province. It refuses to budge, and wo are bound to
say that it occupies strong ground. If
gooil for other Provinces, it should be
good here, for the conditions are not
different enough to make an exception
of British Columbia. The case of
New Brunswick has been noticed. If
we are to be governed by examples,
there is less reason why we. sdiould follow this one than the half dozen
others. Federal issues are not involved
iu onr local elections, and in theory,at
least, it does Bsom the most rational
course to pick out our best toon.
whether Conservatives or Liberals, and
put them in charge. Iu launching
Confederation this was tried in Ontario. The leaders on both sides came
together and formed a Government.
But the arrangement went to pieces at
the end of the first Legislative term,
and thereafter the people divided oil
the old party lines, These are not tin
most cogent of reasons, but they satisfy The World, wliich says :
"By all means let us havo party
politics. It has already been declared
for by the Conservatives, ami so far as
Tbe World is conoerned, such men in
that party as we we know to be lunest
and upright, possessed of probity nnd
ability, abo.'c suspicion ot wrongdoing 01 political iniquity, and who
have the best interests of the country
ni heart, held similar views, nnd to
these we accord cordial but independent support, !So far as Liberalism is
concerned, especially m this Province,
there is an urgent, immediate nnd
absolute necessity for it reconstruction
That there are ninnv good men and
true in tho ranks of Reform throughout British Columbia,goes without saying, but unfortunately there at present
ovists a breeob and a chasm which
will require to be bridged over at the
earliest possible period, if such a victory as was gained on the 88rd of
Juno, IShli. in British Columbia, is to
be repeated."
If it were a matternf example only
or mainly, The Miner would hesitate
loug beforo recommending that the
plunge be taken. Or if it were possible to make tho practice conform ever
so closely to the theory, we should
still hesitate. In the conduct of our
Provincial affairs Federal concerns are
not a factor, and 11 colorless Administration composed of capable and trustworthy men would best meet the circumstances. It is with 1111 entiro disregard of what thev do in Now Brims
wick, or Ontario, or any other Province that. The Minor is becoming more
and more convinced of the expediency
of adopting puny distinctions. We have
novel been able to understand that

It was an uproariously merry crowd

Tile programme was divided into three
breezes that wero chucked up fell ot
specialties that greatly pleased. The
musical part of the performance was
especially good. The principal parts
were taken hy McDowell, who was a
capital farmer, Mr. Melviu, who did
some really clover work in some scenes
iu his muddled up part, and who proved himself to be nn artist of ability,
Mr. White, who took tho part of an old
maid so widl that most people mistook
his sex. Miss Hoyue, who, although
suffering form a severe cold, which
iniule her voice unpleasant, earned out
Ihe description of her part given on
