Defends the British South
African Policy.
WHY   SHE   WITHDEEW
Lord Eeaconsiield  Had Acted Under a
Misapprehension���Hans for Future
of South Africa.
Loiulon, Nov. 29.��� Addressing a
meeting of 7,001) this evening Mr. Jos
epb Chamberlain devoted the main
part of his speech to a justification of
the Government's policy in South Africa and to a refutation of the arguments of tlio Earl of Kimberley, sir
Henry Oampbell-Bauncriuan and
others.
"According to Sir Henry Campbell-
Bannerman," said Mr. Chamberlain,
"we ought to have skulked back to onr
holes wheu Kroger refused to listen
to our peaceful representations, Tbat
would have lost us South Africa,
weakened our hold upon Iudia, and
earned ns the contempt  of mankind."
He reiterated tbat the war was inov-
iialilo, although doubtless Mr. Kruger
wonld have preferred to wait nutil
England was involved with some other
power.
.Referring to the conditions under
which the Gladstone Government
granted the convention of 1888, lie denied that tbo grant was made heonuae
Mr. Gladstone feared a general Dutch
rising.
"The real reason," he asserted;
"was because the Gladstone Government believed rhe annexation of the
Transvaal in 1877, occurred under a
misapprehension by Lord Beaoonsfleld
I lint a majority of the Boers desired
annexation. It was afterwards proved
thnt tins was not their desire, und
the annexation was oanoelled.''
Referring to the basis and conditions
uf settlement after the war, Mr. Clinm-
II rlaiu said :
" I do not like to divide the skin ho-
i. re I have caught tbe bear, but I
most insist that the Boers by their
own action hnve created a clean
sheet upon wihch we can write what
we please ; and I feel I'onvinced that
onr loyal follow subjects in Capo Colony and Natal would regard no solution as durable, wliich did not provide beyond the shadow of a dnuht, tor
the supremacy of the British Hag, the
only guarantee of settled peace and the
only security for tbo just treatment of
all the races of South Africa."
ried on. There weie probably 2,000
names entered nltogther. Almost
every section of thu United States and
Canada had representation in the clientele in amounts ranging from $10
to $1,000. These figures are interesting reading.
On October 27 and 2H the total paid
out, was $8,485, and the total received
{69,870. On November ;i there was
received $68^855 and paid out $4,884.
On November 10 there was paid out
$14,668, and taken in $"10,807. One of
tho ledgers shows this balance for the
period from October 11th to November
10, total paid out $819,060, total received $020,545; balance, $400,880.

el-red they could not regard it as a

"Fort Chabrol" M. Gueiin threatened
to shoot him with a carbine. The testimony evoked violent interruptions
from the public galleries and the President of tho Court ordered them to be
cleared. A prisoner, M. Banllier,
thereupon shouted, "It is shameful,"
and the public prosecutor asked that
M. Barillier bo punished. The Court
after deliberation sentenced him to a

Loudon, Nov. 30. ��� 4 :ii0 a. 111.���
Twelve hours reflection upon Lord
Methuen's brief dispatch has only served to increase public anxiety and suspense. All kinds of speculation is indulged iu. In the absence of any indication as to whether the Boers occupied the north or south bank of Mod-
dor River the best opinion inclines to
the latter theory and it is pointed out
that, the British must have been utterly exhausted if they could uot follow up the fleeing Boers and cre.sh
them, as the enemy crowded over the
hridge, their compulsory line of retreat. The Morning Post's military
correspondent, who has usually shown
great ability, suggests that tbe Boers
are still on the south side of the river, and that tbe bridge is in theii
bands. He points out the great danger to the small British forces who
crossed on pontoons. The importunes
attached to this pnntooning operation,
is proved by tho fact that General
Polo-Cme, one of the only two Tsriga-
dier-Generals, was selected to superintend it.
No word hns since arrived either
from Lord Methuen nor from Natal.
Speculation therefore is useless It is
believed that Lord Methuen will he
instantly reinforced from Capetown
by two battalions of infantry,a detachment of cavalry and a battery of artillery. Colonel Albroebt, who is directing the work of the Boers in opposing
Lord Methuen, was originally an officer in the Austrian army. He entered
the Free State army and soon brought
its artillery to a high state of efficiency. He is known as an able artil-
Im-yist and strategist. Some surprise
is expressed at the fact that Lord Methuen's troops had to tight without
food or water. It seems, however,
that he is not using tinned rations.
He seizes and pays for fresh food. Usually he begins a march about three
in the morning, after a breakfast of
cocoa. Then be does bis fighting or
marching, and afterwards pitches his
camp near the best water, dining when
his transport, arrives. The afternoons
are given over to renting. Only the
bare necessities of life are allowed.
As one correspondent describes it,
the British are fighting "an omnipresent, but almost invisible foe."
Unstinted admiration is everywhere
expressed for the splendid work of
Lord Methuen's column. With a force
roallv Inadequate, be Iris marched Till
miles aud fought three battles wiiliiu
seven days.   While no credence is given
to the rumor that Ladysmith bus fallen, the scare serves to impress the
public with the danger of v.hnt is still
within the bounds of possibilities
Such a misfortune would probably produce a formidable revolt among the
Cape Dutch.
The Daily News says:
"What, ever comes, we must brace
our nerves to meet it. Certainly today
if looks'as if we had beforo us a very
stern and earnest struggle, before we
see our way clear to final victory."
I ed formation at 0 :80 supported  by the
��� artillery, and   the   army   found   itself
in front of the whole Boer force, S.000
strong,    witb  two   large    guns,   four
Krupps, etc.
"The naval brigade rendered great
i assistance from the railway. After
I desperately hard lighting, which lasted ten hours, our men, without water
01 food and in the burning sun. made
i the enemy quit bis position.
"General Pole-Care was successful
j in getting a small parcy across the riv-
I er, gallantly assisted by :!00 Sappers.
I speak in terms of high piaiso of the
conduct of all who were eugaged in
one of the hardest anil most trying
fights in the annals of the Britisli
army. If I nan moution one arm particularly, it is tlie two batteries of artillery.""
A THIRD VICTORY.
London, Nov. 29. ���Following is a
dispatch from Lord Methuen describing his third victory within the week.
"Moddei River, Nov. 88.���Recon-
nnitered at 6 n. 111. the enemy's position on the river Moddei nnd found
them strongly entrenched and concealed. Tbeie was no means of outflanking
them, the liver being full. The action commenced with the artillery,
mounted infantry and cavalry at 5:80
a. m. The guards were on the right,
and the ninth brigade on the left. Wu
attacked the position in widely extend-
London, Nov. 29. ���The expected
great battle at Modder River has been
fought and General Methuen has ndded another victory to bis achievements
of the past week. That the Boers defended their position with all their old
gallantry is amply proved by General
Methuen's dispatch, and it will probably he further testified to when the
heavy British casualties shall be mado
known. There appears to be no doubt
thnt General Methuen gained a real
advantage though details must be
awaited before the full effect of bis ten
hours desperate fighting can be gauged.
Presumably the Burgher army was ou
the south bank of river, but whether
when the Boers retreated they crossed
the river northward, or retired in an
easterly direction Into tho Orange Free
State remains unexplained.
The British appear to have surmounted the difficulties of crossing tbe
river and to have seized for themselves
a position north of the stream. This
success of the Britisli clears another
stage of the road to Kimberley, the
siege of which General Cronje most
have partially raised in order to give
battle to General Methuen. The Burghers nre understood to have a strong
laager at Spytfontein, 14 miles norlh
of Modder River, so another engagement possibly awaits the British he-
fore they can commence the last stage
of 111 miles from Spyfonlcin to Kimberley, though General Oronje would
thereby run a great risk of being
caught between General Methuen and
Colonel Kekewioh, the British commander nt Kimberley.
A lnlated dispatch from Orange River says General Methuen's troops are
advancing under great ililliculiii s fighting an omnipresent hut almost invisible foe.
Enthusiastic, scenes marked the departure today of the first composite detachments of the battalion of Household cavalry going lo South Africa.
Crowds thronged Windsor, cheering
aud singing, mid similar scenes were
witnessed in London in spite of a
dense fog. Lord Wolseley bade the
Horse Guards (the Bines I farewell al
Knigbtsbridge Barracks. Ho made a
speech reminding the men of the grand
military deeds nf the Blues, saving
ho was assured they would do their ut-
i most to add to the glory of a regiment
of which they were so justly proud,
' nail wishing them God speed, good
hick and a safe return.
Struggling crowds lined the route to
the station incessantly singing and
cheering until the cavalry entrained
for Southampton to embark on board
the transport Mapleiuoie.
It was an Interesting ceremony nt
Windsor todny   when   the   Qnccn    in
spoofed   the    men   of  the Grenadier
Guards   who   recently   ii'tiirned   from
Omdurman   aud   convened    with   the
wives nnd fiiinilies of Hie soldiers who
have gone to Sonth Afiica from Wind
sor district. The weather wus.beat.li-
ful. The Queen was accompanied by
the Princess Houry of Battenlieig, and
Princess Christian. After the inspection of the troop--'. Her Majesty briefly
addressed Colonel Button, congratulating him on the splendid conduct of Ihe
guards in South Africa uml expressed
her deep regret at the losses sustained,
Queen Victoria's words were all tbe
more earnest in so much as just before
her arrival at the barracks she had ro-
ceived news of General Methuen's
great victory, with another telegram
received at the barracks, terming it
"the bloodiest   battle of the century. "
Colonel Hutton thanked the Queen
for her kind words and the gnnrds
cheered repeatedly. The wives and
families of the soldiers grouped in
front of the Royal carriage and Her Majesty sympathetically addressed them,
saying how much sho felt for them and
hoping they would have good account-
of their husbands and fathers.
There has been no news of any kind
from Natal up to this forenoon since
General Buller's message yesterday.
Independent communications stopped
abruptly with the announcement that
General Hildyard bad been ordered tu
advance to Colenso. Therefore there
is reasonable solicitude regarding the
course of events there since Mondnv.
London, Nov. 29.���A special dispatch from Windsor snys that General
Methuen's dispatch to the Queen, after the battle of Modder River says:
"The battle was the bloodiest of the
century. The British shelled the enemy out of the trenches nud then charged.    Tbe result was terrible.
London, Nov. :!0. ���The Standard
publishes the following dispatch from
Ladysmith, dated Tuesday, Nov. 21 :
"Last Saturday 1 had a whole sack
full of mv correspondence returned to
me, showing the diffloulty of communication with the outside world.
"The Boers cannonade us almost
daily, hut there have beeu few casual'
ties. Evidently the object of the enemy is to exhaust the spirits of the
Britisli troops by incessant harassing.
The prospects of tbe But ish advance

London, Nov. 211.���The revised list

SUPPLIES FOR SOUTH AFRICA.
Boston, Mass., Nov. 20.���The sailing
of the steamer Monlauk, which has
been loading hay for South Africa bus
been delayed n number of days, as
much of the buy bus failed to pass inspection. This delay is not only unsatisfactory to the Britisli Government, as the hay is greatly needed by
the cavalry in Booth Africa, but it is
also a matter of no small expense tn
the Government, in. tic demurrage on
the steamer is $150 a day. The Canadian ollicials acting [or the British
Government    have   agreed to   get   the
steamer Montauk at  Capetown by tha

NOT MANLY.
Speuking of lhe recent rumor of a
settlement of the labor troubles in the
Slocan, the Silverton paper says the
mine owners "are not as yel. prepared
to come down ell the high pedestal of
arroganoe and ignorance on which
they placed themselves at the beginning of this struggle, when they attempted to cut down the daily wage of
the Slocan miners." This is a dishonest statement, for it is not made in ignorance. Unfortunately, however, dishonest statements in newspapers supporting the labor agitators in this section of the Province are not so rare as
to call for special remark ; indeed, they
are moie common than truthful ones,
and aro fast failiug even to attract attention. We do not know whether the
falsehood in this instance has imposed itself upon the miners, but there is
reason to fear that it has been accepted by a large proportion of them.
It should not be necessary fo explain
to any one in tho   least   familiar with
the circumstances   that the mine owners have made no attempt to cut down
the daily wage.    The mine owners are
in no sense or   degree   responsible  for
the present unfortunate situation.  The
legislation which brought it about was
introduced at the instance of men who
presumed to be acting  foi the miners,
not for the mine   owners.    It   was the
miners who reduced the   working day
from ten hours to  eight  hours,   or, if
not that, it was   in   their  inteiest the
reduction was made.    This was a serious interference with production,   and
entirely upset   the calculations of   the
owners in the operation of their mines:
but we do not know   that much objection would have been made to it if the
contraction in the output bad not been
followed up by a  demand for  the  old
wage.    The  miners  were  determined
to bave  uot  only   an   eight-hour  day
but also the ten-hour  pay.    To   represent resistance to this  demand  ns  an
attempt to cut  riowu   the   wage  is as
dishonest as   it   well   could  be.    The
miners  have   been   'he   aggressors all
through, aud the owners have done no
more than remain on the defensive.  No
one surely will deny them the right to
protect thoir own   interests, aud   more
than this   they have   not   done   or attempted to do.
If the miners wanted an eight-
hour day they should be content
with an eight-hour wage. No one
pressed them to ask for the shorter
day ; it was given at their own desire
or in their own behalf, and the owners
had neither part nor lot iu it. How,
I hen, can it be said that they aro cutting down the daily wage? If tho paid
leaders and the Unions have not led the
miners on to discard all manly feeling,
they should decline to take refuge under false statements, and freo I y admit
that it is they who are responsible for
the entire trouble. There ia nothing
manly in throwing the blame on the
owners, and the miners should have loo
much honesty and independence to do
this themselves or suffer others to do it
for them. They know well it was they
who forced the quarrel, and they
should have the manliness to accept
full responsibility for it. If the owners choose to hava their business run
for them by others, to have both the
day and tho pay regulated for Ihem
without the least regard to their own
wishes or the least consideration for
thoir own interests, that is their
affair; but if they have tho spirit to resent it and to stand up aud make a
light in their own defence, tho minors
should be above countenancing statements deliberately intended to place
them in it false light.
There is a political literature bureau
at Ottawa, said tn be under the direction of Mr. Sifton. Letters 1110 prepared aud sent to newspapers iu sympathy
with tbo Government, and in this way
an effort is made to boom the party.
In tbe latest issue reference is made
to thu Manitoba elections, and to the
active part taken in the campaign by
Sir Charles Tupper. We quote the letter itself : "In spite of the off repeated protests of the Conservative leaders,
both Federal and Provincial, that the
politics of Ottawa and Winnipeg should
be kept absolutely distinct, very active
assistance is being rendered Mi. Macdonald by Sir Charles Tupper himself
and many of his most prominent colleagues of the Federal arena " The
hypocrisy of this will be seen when it
is remembered that two members of
tho Ottawa Government, Mr. Paterson
and Mr. Sifton, only a few days ago
completed a tour of the Province in the
interest of Mr. Greenway. It will be
seen with a vision emphasised if we
can remember further back, when Mr.
Mackenzie aud Mr. Blake, two honored leaders of the Liberal party, laid it
down as a Liberal policy thnt there
should be no entangling alliances between Federal and Provincial Governments. 	
A Colorado subscriber, leuewiug his
subscription to The Miner, says be
likes its course, but thinks we would
improve the character of it if we gave
more news of the St. Mary's River
mines, in which he frankly admits he
is interested. It would give us pleasure to oblige cur friend if some one
would be kind enough to send us information of the region named. The
Miner is not yet lioh enough to support a correspondent at each of the
mining camps of the Kootenays.
As the term of the present Council
draws to its close and it Is declared on
all hands that Mr. Neelands will uot
offer a second time for tbe Mayoralty,
there is a growing desire that Mr. McKillop would allow himself to be put
in nomination for the Chief Magistracy. Thero is also a wide and deep
conviction that should he do so ho
would be returned by a handsome majority over any one other candidate or
a field of candidates

As the dispatch itself says, the rumor that Dr. Borden, Minister of Militia, is to be made a knight, in recognition of his seivioes in connection
with sending the Canadian contingent
to South Africa, will likely prove true.
Not because those services deserve nny
such acknowledgement. Tho contingent wus sent, not at the instance of
Dr. Borden or of the 3overntnent, but
because, as Die Governor-General said,
the Canadian people insisted upon it.
Dr. BordeH's services wore no more
or greater thnn were natural nnd necessary from the head of our Militin
Department. But the Home Government is probably desirous of marking
it* appreciation of the loyalty  and de-
The Spokane Spokesman-Review
(those hyphenated names for newspapers are an abomination) is not pleased
at The Miuer's objection to tbe investment of Canadian capital in Republic. At the close of a fatherly lecture
it says that the Montreal capitalists
who have gone into that camp, "know
their own business best, and will attend to it as suits their interests."
There can be no discussion after   that.

there is plenty ahead to do, and hot
work at that: but given a day or two
to regain their land legs, they will be
ready for tln-ir share of it.

sum nt |564 for material supplied to
defendant, n building contractor
Tbere waB a nct-nff aoonnt of |8B4
llie acoonnts are to bo looked into bv
tho Court Registrar.
W. S. Johnson, of Slocun Oity, who
reRistererl at tho Hnmo on Tuesday
was yesterday tnkon very ill. Dr.
Hall was called in, and pronounced it
a case of appendioitls, reoominending
Mr. Johnson's immediate removal to
the hospital. Tho patient was removed
last night aud will  probably undergo
an operation today or tomorrow.
Tho case nf Brandon vs. Radollffe
ooupied the attention of Judge Forin
at County Court yesleroav. It was a
claim foi |160, the price of a lot at
Brandon, near Slocan City, which
plaintiff held he sold to the defendant.
There was  no documentary evidence
to prove that the lot iu question had
been deeded, and tlio ease was nonsuited.
The case of Thurston vs. Tattersall,
,.1 al, ocoupied the attention of Judge
Kuril) at County (Joint yesterday. This
is an action brought by plaintiff, wbi
resides at Slocan City, againBt Messrs.
Tattersall, Gwillim, Dick and Robert-
sou, owners of the Oliaploau mineral
0 aim, for commission on the sale of
the property to J. M   Williams.
Mr. li. M Macdonald and Mr. P,
Elliot appeared for plaintiff, and Mr.
W. A. Macdonald, Q. 0��� for defendants.
Tho plaintiff's caso is that through
his instrumentality tho property was
disposed of for $:io,ooo on which ho
was to get a commission of 10 per
cent. U110 installment of sjiLfloo bad
been paid, and of this be suns for commission  at rate named.
The (lofenoo sot np is that the plaintiff did not act iib tho agent of tbe do
fendants iu the transaction, hut was
really noting for Williams. His evidence was of an alleged promise on the
part of some of the defendants to pay
him Id per cent, commission, and he
contends lhat, <h�� sale wont through
on the understanding that he was to lie
paid at tins rate; that defendants afterwards refused to pay tho amount,
except an agent a ting for Gwillim,
who, for the purpose of effecting a
settlement, offered to pay five percent.
Williams, who acted for tlm purchasers was in the witness stand for a considerable time and gave evidenoe,tending to support plaintiff's case.
At tho conclusion of the testimony
for the plaintiff, Mr.W. A. Macdonald
asked to have tbo caso dismissed for
want of jurisdiction, contending that
the amount at issue, and under tbo
consideration of the Court, was not
t'.ie 00mmission ou |1,600, but was
rally a s.nn amounting to $3,000,
whioh would be the full amount of
commission al 10 per cunt, and bevoud
the jurisdiction of tho Court. This
application for the dismissal of the action was renewed after lunch, and His
Honor reserved his decision until to
day. Application was also made for a
non-suit ou tbe questiou of liability us
against defendants, and on other
fU'ouiids. No evidence has so far been
gone into on the part of tho defence.

seniira'e school district, and also that
there should be a high school ostau
li shed here. In order to bo iu a posi
tion to ask the Government for a grunt
for high school purposes, it is necessary that there should bo at least
twenty pupils qualified for the grade.
If parents who have children advanced
enongb for high school would send in
their names to Dr. Arthur, Beoretary
Board of School Trustees, they would
greatly facilitate the advancement of a
good cause.
Murphy vs. Brandon was a case
heard at County Court yesterday in
which tho plaintiff claimed $1.10 the
price of a bouse ho ^built on a lot in

lot in consideration ot certain services
he was to render in connection with
advertising tho townsite. Shortly after the house was up Brandon went

Murphy proceeded to move tho building. In this he wus prevented hy

An Ottawa dispatch in yesterday's
Miner   announced   that   a   Monlrealcr
was seeking offioial information us to
the prospects nf the frog-leg industry,
If such an industry would pay in
Montreal, Ihe opinion hero is thut it
would yield immense profits in Nelson.
The  ordinary  Nelsonlte  has  not as
yet developed a taste for frog-leg���at
least if he has the hotels, restaurants
nr fish or flesh dealers do not cater to
it. Nelson is a favorite haunt of the
frog judging from the choruses heard
in the frog season. However, the
present City Council would scarcely
bonus a frog-leg industry, whatever
their successors mav feel disposed to
do. Of ccui'BO the fish or flesh or frog
might be put up here for tbo export
trade.

I     MINING NEWS.     |
Grand Forks, B. 0., Nov. ill.���Jny
P. Greaves linn returned fro*n a trip of
inspection to the Oity ol' Paris anil
Mnjestio properties iu Central camp,
11 miles from Grand Forks
"I am "inch pleased with the pro-
mr - nf development vfork. " said Mr.
Gra'veH. "Abont 00 men are employed, We are uutting a station in the
(.'ity of Paris in the tunnel, about 850
t'.'et from the month The hoi��t recently installed will be in operation
on Monday, linking is in progress at
this station. It will lie continued until nn additional depth of 100 feet is
gaine", before crosoutting is commenced. At the station tlie tunnel is 2ii0
leet vertically from the surface. Over
8,000 feet of work luis been done on
this level in the City of Paris, aud a
raise to the surface has ,iust been completed, insuring good ventilation. A
second raise will be marie from the adjoining and connecting works in the
City  of Lincoln.
"We will shortly commence stop:ng
limn the 100 foot lovel of the  City   of
Paris preparatory fo hauling the ore to
Grand Forks early   in the   new   yeav.
Tlie Majestic tunnel is   in 400 "aet and
good ore was encountered   in   the   last
half of the  workings.   The  property
bids fair to become a good mine.    The
plant which serves  for the two groups
comprises a Rand  duplex   couipresBoi,
two (10 horse-power   hoilers and one 25
home-power hoist.    We erected a number of buildings this   fall   to   provide
accommodation for thn  men, likewise
stables.    A well stocked store conducted an a private enterprise is doing bus
iness   thore.    The   new    wagon   road
from Grand Forks is   iu   good   condition.    Over    it    during    tho   wiuter
mouths will be hauled   from   2,000  to
5,000 tons of ore.    There is 1,000  tons
of shipping ore on the   City   of  Paris
dump.    The City of Paris group  comprises three claims, and   the   Majestic
group four claims.    The principal values are   in   gold,   copper  and   silver.
Many assays of the City  of  Paris  ore
yielded one ounce   of gold, two to five
per cent,   copper   and   from 2(1   to   110
ounces silver per ton.

A special   general   meeting   of   the
Keuueth     Mining   aud    Development
Company, operating the Tamarao mine
near Ymir,   was held in   Rossland  on
Tuesday.    Mr. Rieuzi W. Macfarlano,
the   superintendent,   presentod  a   detailed   report   describing  the development work done, and   the  satisfactory
state of the mine.
Statements made by the directors
show that up to the present there are
2(1,000 tons of ore on the dump and in
backs above the drift, averaging $1.1
per ton. When tbe Work contemplated
during the coming wiuter has been
carried out it is confidently expected
that the amount of ore in sight will be
double tbe above quantity. A statement of the financial position of the
company was also submitted showiiiR
that ample funds were in hand for
necessary development, The following
directors were elected for the ensuing
year: F. W. Rolt, A. S. Goodeve,
C S. Wallis, R. Roberts, K. A. Roberts, G. H. Master, Dr. H. L. A. Keller, Arthur O. Burton, Joseph B. Dali-
ney.

The O. K. miue and mill near Ross
land have passed into the hands of the
Old National Bank of Spokane. A deed
to the property was delivered to the
representative of the Old National
Bank on Tuesday. The latter had
pr.robased the property for $50,000.
The old O. K. company owed the Old
National Bank the sum of $115,000, and
it was the heaviest creditor of the O.
K. company. The recent finds marie iu
the I. X. L. have added value to tbe
O. K, and it is the opinion of mining
men that a little oareful development
work in the O. K. will reveal that it
has pay ore chutes similar to those uow
being brought to light in the I. X. L.
There was a report current yesterday
lhat operations were to be resumed
immediately on the O. K., bnt il
could not be traced to a reliable source.
tory procedure woujd be to acknowledge the legality of that ne-inber's
credentials and refer his disputed qual-
ificnticns.as tho constitution provides,
to tbe subsequent judgment of the
house. A resolution to expel him on
the ground of bis polygamous relations
would require a two-third vote, and
the co-operation of the two parties in
the House would be more convincingly demonstrated than in auv irregular effort to juggle bim out of his eligibility on a point cl order, requiring
only a majority voto,
It is felt by the moie experienced
managers on both sides lhat tlm issue
raised by Mr. Roberts' election to be
met effectively, should be met in a deliberate, dignified and altogether regular wnv.
