Messages of Condolence from
Numerous Sovereigns.
SYMPATHY FOR WIDOW
M* Dupuy Says Ha Will Not be a Candidate for the French Pre-
sidencj.
Paris, Feb. 17.���The official certificate sets forth that the death of
President Faure was caused by congestion and hemorrhage of the
brain. After the remains had been
embalmed, the bodyjwas dressed in
evening dress, with white waistcoat
crossed by the Grand Gordon of the
Legion of Honor. It was then laid
on a white mattress in the study.
The remains will lie in state in the
ball room of the Palace, which is already draped with black. A mass
for the repose of the soul of President Faure was celebrated in the
chapel ot the Elysee this morning.
The family of the deceased were
present. The lobbies of the Chamber of Deputies were crowded today with members engaged in discussing the chances of the various
candidates. MM. Loubet, Moline
and Dupuy were chiefly mentioned.
The Socialists and Radicals favored
M. Loubet.
All the Sovereigns have sent condolence on the death of the President.
The oi'*: ttd the Provincas

pronounced and the bodies adjourned as a token of mourning.

grcat neighbor and ally across the
Channel in the terrible bereavement

especially at a time when difficult
external and internal problems to
be solved." He hoped tbe successor of President Faure would "show
the same justice and impartiality
and the same friendliness towards
this country as always distinguished
him."
The Earl of Kimberly expressed
his sympathy with France in similar terms. In the House of Ci m-
mons the Government leader; Mr.
A. J. Balfour, First Lord of the

In Three Years.

Olliee Depattment and replied with
considerable detail, referring to Sir
Charles' charge that there would be a
deficit of $200,000 in consequence of
tin- reduction in the Dominion postal
rate, Mr. Mnlock said that he had
stated in tbe House at the time of discussion, tbat there would be a deficit of
$050,000 in the revenue, but statistics
showed that decreased rate meant increased correspondence, and he had estimated that u reduction from the three
to a two cent, rate in Canada would result in such increased business that the
whole deficit would disappear in three
years. Mr. Mulock then read a certificate from A. Porter, assistant, postmaster at Clinton, to the effect that the
revenue in the local postofflce from
January 1st, L809 to date bad been #20.110
greater Hum during the oon-espondii g

New York Papers-Makes Excuses for Commission*
IT HAD TOO MUOH WORK
Questions Were of Sufficient Importance
to Require a Longer Time for
Consideration-
New York, Feb. 17.-Referring
editorially to the reported failure of
the Joint High Commission, the
Tribune today says: "In enumerating the controversal issues, at the
time of the first meeting of the commission we remarked that it was
scarcely to be expected that all of
them would be satisfactorily disposed of. It was not reasonable,
indeed, to suppose they would be.
The amount of work involved in
exhaustive investigation and discussion of them was seen to be too
great for a single Commission to
perform within the time at this one's
disposal. Commercial reciprocity,
Behring Sea sealing, Norjh Atlantic
fisheries, the Alaskan boundary,
Klondike mining laws, Alien Labor
laws, Fisheries and Shipping in the
Great Lakes, the Railroad Bonding
System are all questions of first rate
importance and there are many of
secondary rank. To ask a single
Commission to provide, within six
months, for the settlement of them
all in an omnibus tieaty, would be
to ask the discovery of Utopia Rut
if only a few, or even a single of
these matters shall be settled, the
work of the Commission shall not be
in vain. Consider how much labor
and expense have been hitherto expended on a single one. Over the
Behring Sea business we had negotiations and conferences and an
international court of arbitration,
and even then the question was left
unsettled. There were a few years
ago far more discussion and work
over the north Atlantic fisheries
than this Commission has given to
all the questions put together, so
the settlement of only one or two
disputes will be a not unsatisfactory
conclusion of the Commission's
work. But there is still ground for
expecting more than that, for expecting, indeed, that only a few,
perhaps only one or two, of the
questions will be left unsettled.
"The value of the commission's
work is, moreover, not altogether
to be measured by the number of
questions settled. The spirit in
which the negotiations are conducted must be taken into consideration. It may be stated confidently
ihat this spirit has been conciliatory
and amicable. ThCre has been on
both sides an earnest desire to
reach an agreement. The- Commissioners have met as friends, not
as enemies. And, however much or
little actual business has been or
shall be transacted,friendly relations
between the countries have been
strengthened and the way made
easier for future settlement of questions which now may be left unsettled. That is a feature of the
case which it is well to keep in mind
and if this is done, there need be
little talk of the failure of the Joint
High Commission."
REMEDIAL BILL.
Mr. Tarte Explains His Vote 011 it
in the House.
Goderich, Ont., Feb. 17.���The
West Huron campaign is now very
hot. Sir Charles Tupper spoke
here again last night while Messrs.
Mulock, Tarte and Landerkin spoke
to a meeting at Clinton. Mr. Tarte
devoted himself mainly to a discussion of the transportation question
but he referred briefly to the Remedial Bill, saying that at the time it
was introduced by Sir Charles
Tupper,' he, as a French-Canadian
Catholic, spoke against it in the
House, because it would have been
wrong to his countrymen and fellow-Catholics. Had it been carried
the country would have been very
near to civil war, but the question
which threatened to bring about
this had been settled by conciliation,
and for that, if for nothing else, the
Liberals were deserving of the confidence and tupport of thi people.
LOOKS AS IF WE WILL

Five Thousand Dollars Placed
in Estimates.
AN ESTIMATED DEFICIT
Speaker Would Not  Allow  the  Turner
Miiiiiitry Dismissal to Oome up
in the House.
Victoria, B. O.j Feb. 17���The so-oalled
blank warrants, whioh formed the basis
ot a oharge made by Lieutenant Governor Mclnnes against the Turner Ministry at the time of their dismissal last
aummer. engaged the* attention of tbe
Legislature for some time this afternoon.
At a recent sitting of the publio Acoounts
c mmiitleo the matter was taken up at
the instance of Mr. Turner, tbe batoh of
warrants being produced and the Audit* r
General showing that |the blank sheets
bad been inserted iu accordance with the
usual praotice, fur his convenience in
mnkii g memoianda as payments under
the warrants were made from time to
time. Every member of the committee
expressed himself as satisfied tbat the
blanks were inserted for a proper purpose. The meeting of the committees
a e held in private and therefore Mr.
Turner moved to have the facts asoer-
taiued reported to the House with the
other proceedings. Thii, however, tbe
Government members refused to do, d* -
dining to make any report whatever as
to the warrants. Accordingly when the
report of the committee was read in the
House today, Mr. Turner asked letve to
present a minority report on the subject
of the wurrnuts, the presentation of
minority reports being in accordance
with the practise of the Legislature in
the past. The .Speaker, however, refused to allow the presentation of a minority report, deolaring that this would
be the rule in the future, according to
English practice, no matter what hud
beeu done in the past, and thus the m; I -
ter ended, although Mr, Turner earliest I \
pressed to have the facts placed upon tbe
official records.

President McKinley to   a
Boston Club.
iNO CHANGES IN TARIFF
He Rejoices in the Fact That Currenoy
of the Oonutry Will Not be
Molested-
Boston. Mass., Feb. 17.���Addressing
tbe members of the Commercial Club
today President McKinley said : The
past year has recorded a volume of
business, domestic and foreign, unparalleled in any former operations of
the United States. Our enormous export trade has made Americans balances satisfactory and almost for the
first time, the money of the country
has been abundant and the wealth of
the country so great that onr capitalists have sought foreign investments.
We are fast going from a debtor to a
creditor nation. I hope nothing will
check it. We have quit discussing the
tariff und have turned our attention
to getting trade wherever it can be
Found. It will be a long time before
any change pan bo had, or any change
desired, in onr present fiscal policy
except to strengthen it. The differences 011 this question which existed
have disappeaied. We have turned
from academic theories to trade conditions and are seeking onr share of
(he world's markets. Not only is our
business good, but our money is gr��d.
there is uo longer nuv tear of debased
currency, it ha*3 been happily dispelled.
The highest and best standard recognized by the leading commercial nations has bcon maintained and it has
been done without a resort to loans.
Che cause of sound money has advanced in the last two years. Honest.
linanee has made positive gains, I do
not think we quite appreciate yet the
full measure of its success. Both
branches at Congress, 011 the fourth of
March next, will hnve au unquestioned
majority opposed to any deuioraliza-
ion of onr currenoy and the invoil-
ability of our national obligations and
���redit. The investments and other
enterprises of the people can, therefore,
he uot unsettled to sudden changes.

THE DOMINION PROVISO.
In the debate on the second reading of tbe Attorney-General's Bill to
disfranchise a number of persons
who, it was feared, would vote
against Government candidates, a
point was raised in connection with
the Dominion franchise that is in
itself a very severe reflection on the
proposed legislation. In these days
of numerous and hurried amendments, it may have been forgotten
by many that at the last session ol
the Dominion Parliament a new-
Franchise Act was passed. Hereafter the franchiae for Dominion
elections will be the franchises in
the various Provinces. The Provincial voter's lists are accepted as
the lists to be used for the election
of the members of the Dominion
Parliament. A member raised the
point that if the British Columbia
Legislature disfranchised classes of
the people, they would be unable to
vote in Dominion elections.
The Attorney-General was able to
relieve his anxiety, He explained
that in the new Dominion law provision is made to enable disfranchised Provincial voters to vote, on
making a declaration according to a
prescribed form. In the case of a
Dominion election, therefore, we
are to have the Provincial lists with
exceptions. Nova Scotia disfranchises civil servants, both Provincial and Federal; there are partial
proscriptions in Ontario and wholesale proscriptions in Manitoba, and
now British Columbia is to be added
to the lists of Provinces that den\
the rights of citizenship to an intelligent and respectable class of their
population. If exceptions were
not made the Dominion Parliament,
by adopting the Provincial lists,
would debar this class from taking
part in Dominion elections. Recognizing the injustice of such a policy
pains were taken to provide tbat
they should be enabled to vote.
The promoter of the disfranchis-
Bill in this Province .vas quick to
explain all this; but he did not seem
to realize that theation of the
Dominion Pi liament was a reflection on the local laws and in effect
a declaration th; * they worked an
injustice to those affected by them.
To Nova Scotia and Manitoba, Parliament said: You have disfranchised our civil servants and your
own; that was wrong, and we shall
restore to them the right to vote in
Federal elections. If Parliament in
its wisdom will thus go out of its
way to declare that civil servants
should not be deprived of the Dominion franchises, what possible justification can there be for disqualifying them as Provincial electors ?
If a civil servant may exercise the
franchise in a Dominion election
without danger to Confederation,
how   can   it:   be
ballot in the hands of a civil servant
threatens destruction to a Province?
If not wrong, is injurious, or dangerous in its   broader application to  ,, ������.,*,,,������ I'. : ,, ������,.,

indeed from desiring to depreciate
the value of an exhibit at Paris. It
will be worth much to us, if a thoroughly representative one is put under competent management. But at
best it will be one small feature of
many important and attractive ones.
The mining exhibit at E*>rl's Court
is expected to be one the most prominent. It will be in London,convenient to the large and rapidly growing numbers who are taking an in
terest in colonial mining. Towards
the development of the mineral resources of this Province we expect
more from London, many times ov
er.than from tbe rest of Europe combined. It is to London we look for
our capital; not to Paris, or Berlin,
or Amsterdam, although a - stray
capitalist from any of those places
may be induced to look towards
British Columbia by a Paris exhibit.
Between the two, Earl's Court
would seem to promise the most in
practical results. But it would be
better if the exhibit were made in
both, and this may still be done, with
slightly additional expense, if the
Government at Victoria will take
time enough from their absorbing
occupation. of entrenching them
selves in power to give the matter
consideration. Let the appropriation be for Earl's Court this year,
with the understanding that we
move on to Paris the next. There
are three months remaining in which
to make all the necessary preparations.

WANTS TO SUPPLY
THE CITI OF NELSON ���
Kootenay Power & Light Co.
Looks tor an Opening.
HAS NELSON IN VIEW
Would Bring Eleotrio Lis-ht aud Power to
This Oity From tho Bonuiugton
Falls Plant*
If present plans are carried out
the electric light and power system
which will soon be in complete possession of the City of Nelson will
have a strong competitor in the
Koolenay Light and Power company, whose plant at Bonnington
Falls generates electricity at the
present time for Rossland.
There is, and has heen for some
lime, a great deal of dissatisfaction
in this cily, because of the poor ser-
\ice supplied by the city plant. The
Kootenay Power and Light Co. took
advantage of this to sound several
of the patrons of the city system and
also, it is believed, concerns about
the city which require considerable
power. The result is that they have
met with a great deal of encouragement and it is not unlikely that
they will apply to the city council in
the very near future for permission
to enter the city. This is where
the city will have the best of it. The
aldermen may refuse to grant the
company permission to string wires
hut it is believed by the power company there are a sufficient number
of consumers in the city who desire
first class service to compel the
council to allow them to enter.
Of course if the council decided
at once to go ahead with the improvements on the city plant and
put in a system which will supply
all those seeking illumination and
power it is possible that the Kootenay company will decide to make
no effort to get in, but unless something is done in the very near future
they will stick to their present plans.
The plant of the Kootenay Power
and Light company is situated 12
miies from Nelson. In order to give
service here it would be necessary
for them to put in a system of trans-
formeis in order to reduce the voltage. They have power at all times
of the year and their service would
therefore sutler no interruptions.

Women's Council Will 0ommenc8
Next Wednesday-
Miss Bessie Livingstone, of Boston,
that peerless exponent of the art of cooking, will arrive in tho city tomorrow,
mni ol Wednesday afternoon will corj-
mence her course of lectures under the
auspices of the Women's Council. Tbe
proceeds of the two weeks' session
��ill be devoted to tbe Public Library.
The ladies of the council have been
working earnestly to moke the lectures
a success, and it is hoped tbat a considerable sum will be raised for the Library. The large hall ever S. Nee-
la 1 ds' boot aud choe store, has been
kindly placed, rent free, at the disposal
of tbe ladies by Mr. Neelands, and the
eel urea will take place tnere.
The opening lecture will be given
on Wednesday afternoon, and the first,
which will deal with soups, will be free.
The ladies will serve tea and it is expected that a large number of people
will attend. A large 1 umber of ladies
have handed their names to be enrolled
011 the list of those who will attend the
course of lectures. Not a few men
have also Signified their iutentiou of
doing so. In this country, where
male cooks are in larf-e demand, men
should take advantage of this opportune y of lea ning all they can ot the
art of preparing dishes.
The Vancouver Province.in speaking
of Miss Livingstone's work, says:
It speaks well for the interest and
\alue of Miss Livingstone's cooking
school course, now about half conclud-
d, that the attendance is increasing
at every leseo-. Certainly Miss Livingstone's work, apart from its piactical
value, is an education of pecular importance from tho standpoint of hygienic dieting, and she has proved herself a very capable exponent of the
now domestic science which bas done
and is doing bo ranch to revolutionize
the methods of tbe kitchen.

The Lardean is quiet just at. presenl
but it is a calm before a storm, says
the Revelstoke Herald. Tlio new
railway about to bo built into that
district this coming sprint* by the O,
P. R. will give the district a lift, and
the mines will prove their richness on
tho lirst shipment next fall to tin*
smelters. Prosperity for that district
is assured and that at an early date.
