Criticises the Spirit of Jingoism and Imperialism-
Says the World is Nearer the Beginning 0
its Difficulties Than the
London, Jbd. 17.���The Bight Honorable John Morley, Liberal member of
Parliament from Montrose Burghs, addressing bis constitutents this evening
at Breslin, said he entirely oonourred
with the reasons whiob led Sir William
Vernon Harcourt to resign the leadei-
ship of tbe Liberal party in the House of
Commous. It was bis own intention, he
declared, to retire from active and responsible participation in tbe formal
oounoils of the heads of the Liberal pai -
ty, although his zealous and eager oi ���
operation oould always be counted upon
for the Bdvanoement of every Liberal
Mr. Merely p.oceeded to criticise the
"Prevailing spirit ot jingoism and imperialism." He denounced it as "entirely
opposed to all the lessons of Mr. Gladstone, lessons to whieh be would feel
himself untrue, where be to allow himself to drift in acquiescence with a course
of polioy of which he believed injurious
to our material prosperity, to tbe national character and to the strength and
safety of the imperial state."
He frankly admitted that he took a
pessimistic view of the difficulties threatening throughout the worh-i.
"I think," be exclaimed, ''we are nearer the beginning of them than the  end."
It was hiB Arm conviction that "The
prevailing spirit ot Imperialism must inevitably bring militaryism to a gigantic
daily growing expenditure, increased
power to aristrocats and privileged
classes and war."

old, a car driver of 65(1 Tenth Avenue.
He is a very laige man, being six feet
tall, weighing 200 pounds. Weinhold
was taken to bellevue hospital this
morning gasping for breath. There
wns an enormous growth on the right
s'de of his face. He wns unable to
speak and could neither tell his symptoms nor explain the cause, although
the doctors attribute it to either the
extraction or decay of a tooth. There
was not even time for an nnacthetic to

used at once by Doetor Bart Wilson.
A Few More Words About  the Senate
Toronto, Jan 17.���The Globe says
editorially under the heading of "Unnecessary Excitement": More fuss is
being made over the remarks of Bourt-
not an the senate than is warranted by
the importance of the incident. We
are in favor of the abolition of the
Senate and we find on looking through
exchanges at least 00 per cent of all the
Liberal journals in Ontario and a large
proportion elsewhere are of the same
opinion, but we fail to see any formidable objection to Sir John Bonrinotor
anybody else wiiting ou the. other side.
Strictly speaking, we suppose, civil
servants ought to keep out of political
discussions but in this case, argument
is so one sided we feel like allowing defenders of the Seuate all the latitude
they desire. In any case we see veiy
little to object to in the remarks of the
Olerk of the Commons. He said in
the most inoffensive language that the
objections to the Seuate will hardly be
removed while its members are the

perfectly sound propositions. He also

And First  Successful  Operation  For
Ludwig's Angina.
New York, Jan/ 17���The first success
ful operation for Ludwig's Angina, the
third case of its kiud in medical history, was performed at Bellevue hospital today. It is that peculiar and
fatil malady in which there is an accumulation of pus in the throat that
chokes its victim to death. Only two

of Andree's baloon.
Washington, Jan. 17.���The Democratic opponeuts of the peace treaty were in
conference several hours today devising

Bay, Drowned on Toronto
Toronto, Out., Jan. 17.���About 2
o'clock this morning the loud barking ol
a dog ou the frozen bay nttraoted thi
attention of a watchman to au ice hole.
He tried to chase the dog away but thi
animal would not go. A search showed
a seal cap lying ou the ice ueai the boh
and foot prints in the vicinity ns if somi
one had gone through. The police were
called aud after much effort succeeded
in bringing out the body of a drowned
mBU. ThiB morning it was identified as
that of Rev. Thos. McAdam, He was 55
years ot age and was a minister of the
Presbyterian ohurch, though at present
without a ohuroh. He was lately stationed at North Bay and prior to that
was a professor in Moriu oollege, Montreal. He was a scholarly mau and had
many friends iu the city, where he had
been stopping for the past ten weeks.
Lust Suuday he preached twice to Wesl-
min ter ohuroh. The cause of the
drowning is a matter of conjecture.
Whether death was the re .i.lt'of acii lei t
or not is not known. The remains were
identified by his wife, who with him,
has been stopping iu the oity for the
past ten d��ys. Deceased was in full
possession of his faculties last  evening.
The Natives are Very Troublesome in
Specimen, China,
London, Jan, 17���A Central News
despatch from Szeohuen conttima the
report of an attack upon foreign missionaries at that place by Chinese. The
Church Missionary Society has re.
ceived a letter from the Protestant
mission at Szeohuen, which says that a
tierce attack has been made made by
natives upon the Catholic mission
there, but at the time of writing the
Protestant MLslon was still unharmed,
although the anti-foreign feeling wns
increasing. The people, lhe letter
says, are taught to believe that tie
saints' bones displayed in the Catholio
re.ics, are really the hones of Chinese
who had been murdered.
London, Jau. IB.���The Odessa correspondent of the Standard says: "The
Russian Government is arranging for
combined military and naval evolutions
on a grand scale next spring in Russian
China, a feature being au assuult upon

England Now France's National Enemy-
The Iron Chancellor Hoped to Live to See
France Forced Into Such
an Alliance.
Paris, Jan. 17.���Ever since the much
discussed conference in Berlin on Jen.
8 between Emperor William and the
Marquis de Nacilles, Fienohmen have
been aotively discussing tlie possibility
of a French-German alliance. The idea
is meeting with approval in certain quarters, now that Frenchmen have come to
regard England rather than Germany as
the national enemy. M. Ernest Daudet,
the novelist, is an advocate of such an
entente which the Courier du Soir considers "Quite possible."
Le Soir publishes today some alleged
conversations of the late Priuoe Bis-
mark during the closing year of his life,
according to which his dream was to
found a colonial empire. Fearing, however, that this would alarm British in-
terestsjhe determined to force France into colonial enterprises, hoping thereby
to embroil her with Gieet Britain and to
hive her into the arms of Germany and
This new triple alliance, Bismarck believed, would force England to draw
back and allow Germany to establish
colouies in complete siourity. the exposition of Bismarckiau policy, says Le
Soir, explains the whole secret of the
present attitude of German.
The Ambassador at London Speaks
Words of Paaco.
London, Jan. 17.���The French Ambassador here, M. Paul Cambou, replying to au address of the International
Arbitration Association at the embassy
here today, said that no feeling of
hostility towards the British existed
in France. The presses on both sides
be added, hud exaggerated tho little
frictiou over the Fashoda incident,
whieh was only temporary. France
eordially supported the Czar's aims,
hut the Ambassador feared that their
praotical realization would be a long
time coming.

Causing Some Frictiou.
Belli . Jnn. 17���In the Reichstag
today Heir I.eiizmann Freisinnige,
Peoples' parly, raised the question of
theLippe Detmold succession, strongly
criticised the decision of the Federal
Counoil, and called upon the people of
Detmold to draft their succession law
without delav. This evening papers

Hohenlohe as very unsatisfactory and
as leaving the vital points untouched.
Meanwhile Lippe has beeu further annoyed by powerful Pllissiu. The Lippe

because it was f< und that the railway
project with the West Pluilian Railroad Company had failed, owing to the
opposition of the Prussian Government.

Work On the Flume To Begin at Once.
One Portion of it to Be Bushed to Completion- No Trouble in Securing
Water Eights.
The first section of the flume proposed by and npon which work was
commenced by the council of last year
will he completed by the present council. This was the decision arrived at
at a meeting of the counoil yesterday
afternoon. The work of construction
which had been suspended during the
past few days will begin anew nt once
und within two veeks after he gets
the lumber on the ground, City Engineer McCulloch promises to hnve the
tlume completed, assuring good eleetrio
light service to business houses and
residences alike aud permitting buildings which are not now wired to have
snch improvement made.
Yesterday's meeting was called to
order shortly after 2 o'clock with a full
attendance. After some matters of
minor importance had been attended
to , the electric light flume question
was taken up. Aid. Fletcher stated
that he had spoken to the Gold Commissioner with regard to the water
rights and had beeu informed by him
that the city could undoubtedly secure
the rights if the matter was taken up
at once. The application of the Dominion Development Co. and F. August Heinse was for water in Salmon River at a point near Erie and
did not affect the water which the
city had staked. A payment of $44.50
must be made at ouce. however, on the
application originally made. Iu addition Mr. Fletcher learned that the city
could take advantage of the application any time within tbe next (10 days,
and that if any extension of time was
required it would undoubtedly be
The question of the necessary legislation required to enable the city to
acquire the water rights was then
taken up and Messrs, Macdouald and
Johnson were Instructed to prepare it.
In this connection City Engineer McCulloch was instructed to at once make
application for the water, amending
the original application to provide for
water for domestio as well as industrial
The matter of tho water rights practically settled, Aid. Thomson thought
that the ouly thing to be discussed was
whether or not work ou the flume
should be continued. Hu believed that
all of the aldermen were of the same
mind in the regard. Over $1000 had
already been expended nnd lumber had
been ordered. It was necessary that
the electric light plant should be increased iu capacity and he bolieved.
therefore, that the first section of the
fhimo should be immodiatly bnilt.
There was of course the question of
ways and menus. The first section
would cost $7500. Toward this there
was $4000 from the electric light de-
hentures, leaving a sum of $)1800 to be
raised in order to complete the work.
Aid. Fletcher suggested that the
city would in all probability be required to make a loan of about $!15, ���
ooi) for needed improvements on the
water works, sewers aud electric light
plant, and in view of this ho thought
it would bo wiso to go ahead with the
Hume work at once, leaving tho matter
of finances to ho discussed at a later
Aid. Thomson acted upon Aid.
Fletcher's suggestion, and moved,
seconded by Aid. Hillyer, that tho
mayor be authorized to instruct the
city engineer to rush the work ou the
first seotion of the flume, the money
for such work to be paid at present out
of current receipts, the question as to
whether tho charge should be made to
"current" or "dobenture" uocount to
he laid over till some future period.
In answer to  an enquiry City Engineer MoOulloch stated that within two
weeks  after   the  lumber   was on the
ground  the flumo  could be completed.
In accordance with instructions
given him at Monday's meeting, City
Clerk Straohan and that he had spoken
with ex-Mayor Houston regarding the
hook and ladder truck and had learned
that the apparatus in question had not
been ordered. Upon motion of Aid,
Hillyer the Mayor was empowered to
appoint a committee of two to enquire
ana report as to apparatus needed for
the fire department, His Worship naming Aid. Hillyer and Fletcher as the
committee. On motion of Aid. Beer,
seconded by Aid, Kirkpitrick, the
public works committee was instructed
to report as to the desirably and probable cost of au electric fire alarm system.
Aid. Thomson presented a resolution
providing that all cheeks drawn on the
city's account be signed by the mayor
and acting city treasurer and that Aid.
G. Frank Beer he appointed acting
city treasurer, whioh resolution wns
Aid. Beer asked for an opinion in
regard to the matter of employing
British subjects on public works instead of aliens. He did not mean to
be entirely exclusive but he thought
men who were citizens should he given
the first opportunity. It would also
have tho effect of inducing foreigners
to become naturalized. Aid. Beer's
sentiments met the approval of his
Aid. Beer asked if it would not be
advisable to secure from a valuator a
statement as to the value of the electric light plant. The other aldermen
did not thiuk so. The plant had already beeu purchased and it would do
no good they thought to secure a valuation now. Aid. Beer therefore let
the matter drop.
Aid. Fletcher, McKillop and Hillyer
were appointed a committee to negotiate for a settlement of the difficulties
now in litigation in regard to the
electric light plant.
The city engineer was instructed to
use all efforts to remedy the existing
trouble in the water main on Victoria
street between Josephine and Ward.
The conucil then adjourned until
next Monday at 7 :!!() p.m.
Power   of   Parnelism    is  on the   Wan
and the Labor Party
Is  flaming.
Dublin, Jan. 17���Judging from the
results known at midnight, the elections held today have been remarkable
for the success of the.Laborites and the
waning power of Pnrnellisin. The
new feature is that women wero allowed to vote for the first time. In
Dublin the representation of labor has
1 een quadrupled, while the Parnellites
have secured little more than half
their former strength, although owing
to internal dissensions in Mr. John
Redmond's party, it is rather difficult
to give an accurate estimate. Mr.
Redmond himself has been elected for
oue ward, but he did net head the poll
and therefore misses the aldermanship. Mr. Tim Harrli gton, member of
parliament for the Harbor division of
Dublin, is iu the same boat, having
been topped by a new Laborile. In
Cork the Parnellites have done better,
but they havo failed to retain their
f ,rmcr ascendancy, having now only a
majority of one over tlie Dlllonites,
while the Lahorites have secured nine
scats. Wherever, however, the issue
was between a Parnellile and an atiti-
P.iruelliteand the question was squarely fought without internal squabbles,
ns at Killkenny and Wexford, the
Parnellites were victorious. Speaking
generally, there is an increase of Na-
tiona'.ist power, but nothing like a rigorous exclusion of Unionist,

Bishop Potter Startles a Temperance Gathering.
Refers to the Saloon as Snch���More  Poor
Thau Bich; More Saloons
Than Clubs.
New York, .Ian. 17���Bishop Potter
startled the members of the Church
Temperance Society at a meeting in
the Waldorf-Astoria hotel hist uight.
In his addre?s he s_nid the sa'oon was a
necessity under the present conditions
ofaffaiis. Joseph H. Choate, in a
speech, took the opposite view. The
meeting was held to gather money for
the proposed Squirrel Inn, a temperance establishment for the Bowery,
where the working people can go and
spend their evenings. Bishop Potter
was to speak upon the "Church and
Temperance," but he confined himself
wholly to saloons as a necessity.
"We may abuse it." he said, "anathematize it. but it is ii necessity as a
social intercourse. Relaxation and refreshments are necessities. The
saloons exists because you and 1 have
given our brother uo better lliings. It
is the (ruth; you may not like to hear
it, but it is s<\ We, who belong to the
so-called favored classes,have our clubs.
But the poor man cannot afford $100
a year for a club and so he frequents
the saloons. Let there be no mistake,
the man who keeps a saloon defends
t, and justly, as the poor man's club.
There are more pool than rich, more
saloons than clubs. The man who
keepsthe saloon and who says it is
I be poor man's club tells the truth.
Can anyone blame the poor laboring
man, weary of his day's work, because
he leaves his squalid home, his wife
and his squealing child-en and seeks
in the brightly lighted, comfortable
saloon, the Society of congenial com-
The temperance people present present were startled at such sentiments
from Bishop Potter, but be was thoroughly in earnest. His address had
the effect lo cause the rich men present to go deeper into their pockets for
funds to establish the Squirrel Inn.

Mail Orders
A Speciality.
There are some features in the
game of politics as played at Victoria that outsiders do not readily
comprehend. Resignations are not
a usual or popular thing with members,but just now they are as numerous as blackberries in June. A few-
weeks ago two of them resigned for
some trifling breach of the Act to
preserve the independence of the
Legislature,and they were re-elected.
Since then four others have resigned
for similar reasons, and another
four are making inquiries to ascertain if it is necessary they should do
likewise. These latter comprise tu o
members of the Government and
two leaders of the Opposition. It
is difficult to decide if this is play or
whether it is all meant seriously.
The nature of these pretended
breaches may be gathered from the
character of one of them. Col.
Baker is mixed up with the Canadian
Pacific Company in the ownership
of a townsite. He is afraid the Company may have had some dealings
with the Government, in which case
he would be an offender against the
Act and to escape punishment would
have to resign.
No one supposed for a moment
the Legislature ever contemplated
that these acts should be regarded
as violations of the law. It is trifling with the common sense and
gravity of the people of the Province
to pretend that because a Government Police officer bought a few
cartridges in a store, the owner of
it, who was a member, thereby forfeited his seat; or because a road
gang on some Government work
bought hay at the Premier's ranch,
he is thereby disqualified. Why,
then, the resignations and threatened
resignations? Are the people at
Victoria such desperate hair-splitters
that an innocent thing like these is
to be magnified into an offence?
They may be violations, according
to the strictest reading of them. If
we are to take as law the finest
technicalities of the law, it may be
that there have been breaches of it.
But it requires that there shall be
some one behind, insisting on the
technicalities and threatening vengeance. Who is it? Are these
members actually being threatened
with proceedings for these trivial
and unconscious . offences, or is
it merely a game among the members themselves to force a crisis?
Whatever the cause or motive, the
thing itself, so far as the public can
understand it, is supremely ridiculous. It looks like very ill-judged,
inconsiderate  fooling.
spect to these, our contemporary's
point is not nearly us good as it
Its greatest mistake, however, is
in assuming that Conservative
Senators are bound to regard public
questions precisely as Liberal members of the House of Commons. If
we concede what The Globe expects,
that Liberal members are always
right, then Conservative Senators
do wrong in resisting anything they
propose. The country, however,
does not concede this. The Senate
may have been extremely docile
during the years named, but it was
because its members believed as the
Conservative majority in the other
House believed, We have no right
to charge them with too ready submission to the majority in the Commons, because, being Conservatives
themselves, they believed in Conservative policy. And il is a much
too extravagant demand to say that
they shall repudiate their Conserva-
ive principles merely because the
majority in the other House happens
to be Liberal. The Senate is to be
judged, not in regard to its attitude
towards the Commons, but rather
its attitude towards the country. If
it can be shown that during those
years it permitted measures to pass
that the country did not want, or in
more recent times refused measures
the country did want, it is put on
the defensive. Otherwise it is serving the purpose for which it was
created, and a very useful purpo
it is.

Nelson, worked with a vengeai.ee.
Nothing wns left undone to place before the Provincial authorities the true
situation of affairs. Letters were
written and telegrams sent and the
majority of them were from supporters of the present Government For
instance, one telegram sent yesterday
hy a Hume supporter and n ninn who
took nn active part iu his campaign,
read as follows:
"A dispicnble move on to have Police Magistrate Creas�� removed. Iu
tense feeling here aiuoDg your strongest supporters. 'Am writing j ou full
particulars. Don't allow anything to
be done until yon get my letter."
This was but one of many of a like
nature. It was sent by a geutleman
who had been out of the city and who
only returned yesterday and learned
of the affair.
It is generally believed now, however, that the efforts to have Mr.
Crease removed have failed. It is
thought that Secretary Hume would
not dure sacrifice what political interests he has here by sanctioning such a
"Those who seek to remove Mr.
Crease," paid a gentleman yesterday,
"have been turned down by the people.
The Provincial authorities; of course,
know of this aud it is not likely they
would care to make enemies of those
of their supporters wlio are defending
Mr. Crease and who were on the win-
niug side in the municipal election. It.
is a matter of politics at Victoria, not
of sentiment or of propriety, and it
would indeed be poor politics to take
Mr. Crease's head."

If tbe weather continues for two or

likely that another fall of snow will be
required iu tho near future in order that

it was anything but desirable weather.

Those who have not actually seen
the work of building the railway
through the McRae creek pass and
alnug the North Fork of the Kettle
river, says the Boundary Creek-Times,
can scarcely realize the difficulties
which modern engineering skill can
overcome���ard yet the construction of
the line from Rob'on to Boundary
creek attracts little comment outside of
the local press It is a strange fac*,
but the praises of this feat of engineering will probably not be loudly sung
until construction days are a thing of
of lhe past.
