DEARTH OF WAR NEWS
War Oflice Believed to Be Withholding
Dispatch., s���The Ex-Commander-
in-Ohief Growls.
London, Nov. 10.��� At the [Guildhall
bnnqnet, the Marquis nf Salisbury,
Lord Wolseley, Mr. Ritchie, Lord
George Hamilton, Lord Halsbury, tlio
Lord Cbicl' .luslice, the Duke of Marlborough tind n few minor diplomats
were present. Mr. Ohamberlain wns
absent. Lord Salisbury and Lord
Wolseley were warmly welcomed as
they passed from the reception in the
library into tho banquetting ball.
Lord Salisbury rising at a quarter past
nine, was greeted with intense enthusiasm, prolonged cheering and a general
waving of handkerchiefs.    Tbe   Pretn-
er said :
"I have had to answer for many
years similar kind receptions in this
hall, but never before under conditions
that justified mo in applying so confidently to your sympathy and support
as in the present grave state of
affairs.
"Before turning to this serious
point, my duty is to inform yon tbat
our situation iu Sooth Africa is the
only part of onr telatioiis witb othtr
nations to whioh any term of apprehension or donlit can he applied. Por
several years our relations with and
cordial feelings towards our kinsmen
011 the other side of ihe Atlantic have
been constantly growing, though
we neither interfere into the affairs of
their continent, nor do they interfere
in the affairs of the other.
"But perhaps you think 1 am san-
guine in saying that on the continent
of Europe we have no hostility to
fear. There is undoubtedly a certain
KcorbUy of tone among tho writers of
the foreign mess, lint I do not believe
that the trend of ibis opinion affects
tlio peoples of foreign notions. I am
quite certain it does not affect their
Governments and 1 will say thnt I
have noted, as one of tbe symptoms of
the present time, the happy relations
existing between thu United States
and ourselves, (cheers) aud tbo sympathy witb which we wnfeb their np-
pror.oh toward the sumo great problems
lhat we ourselves have had to solve.
That is not to say that I do not feel the
greatest sympathy with th?ir 1 .to antagonist, the kingdom of Spain. We
entertain the highest hope that out of
that war a blessing iu disguise will
grow, and that there will be nn abundant growth, civilization and culture
in that ancient Hurt most interesting
monarchy.
"This morning yon had Intelligence
of an agreement between ourselves and
one of tiic great continental states witb
winch for many years we have entertained relations of sympathy and
friendship heyo d others. Samoa is
not in itself a very Important matter;
I'tit it was important because it con
stunted a subject of difference between ourselves and a nation whose
Hoed will we prize very highly.
"1 do not know entirely the reason
why the German people and Government attach so much importance to
Upoln, hut tbey do, and we ure ven
glnd to Hud the means whereby, without the least diminishing the rights
and advantages of England, we are
able to gratify their views and fiouti-
ino'its.
1'The agreement is somewhat (torn-:
plicated, but roughly it may be said
lhat the Germans had great interest
in the island because thoy have invested large anioutiis in its cultivation
and boeunso they have constructed a
groat commercial tinde of   which they
are proud,   'the islands, therefore, are
'it great vnlne lo Ihem. To ns, on Jthe
ether hand, islands are generally only
valuable when they furnish good harbors, Upoln furnishes a very had bar-
hor. You will remember the great
hurricane when a British man-of-war
escaped and when the German and
American men-of-war were destroyed.
In these circumstanc3s we nre glad
to accept a renunciation of the rights
of Germany over another island, Ton
ga, where there itt in addition, au inimitable harbor, We look the hurbor
and Germany took tho territory, in
which for many reasons, tho Germans
are interested.
"I believe we have arrived at a very
remarkable phenomenon, an agreement
Which is agreeably pleasant and advantageous to both powers, hut this is interesting because it indicates that, at the
present moment, our relations with tbe
German people are all wo could desire.
THE   WAR.
"Tbe great subject that interests all
of us, undoubtedly, is this war, adorned witb so many splendid feats of heroism and skill, hut saddened bv so many
lo-ses. I have great difficulty in dealing with tbe war; and if I attempted
to deal with the future, I should be
undertaking a task in prophecy, from
W'liicb the hardiest would shrink. If I
speak at all, it may rather bo to de-
preoate      criticism     and    statements
tempt to pass judgment on what still
depends upon the future for its full
determination.
"Respecting the feelings expressed
twice or thrice that tbe want of troops
is due to a waut of action on tbe pint
ot the home Government, 1 would
point ont that there nave been two or
three voices. Two or three months
ago we were told by the most antbori-
tative voice outside tho Government
that there was no need for military
preparations. But neither of those erit'.
lcisms is at all equivalent to the
events which have been taking pine,..
It has heeii often sain, especially
abroad, that we. are a st'ong nation
.Hacking a weak one; but, so long as
tne principal part of our forces is separated hy au interval of fonr or five
weeks from tbe held of action, it
would rather be true to say that wo
are a weak nation lighting; n strong
nation. Elements of distance aie vi-
tal and essential iu this matter.
"It would have been nothing to the
purpose to issue proclamations for reserves some weeks earlier. For what
was the cause of the war, and what
wus the cause of the ultimatum? It
was not because of any demand we
made. It so happens that at the moment the ultimatum was issued, we
bad'withdrawn our demands,and there
was no demand before the Transvaal
Government. It was because we had
taken measures to increase the amount
of our fornus in South Africa, but if
that had been done a few months sooner, exactly the same result would have
taken place. The moment yon hnd
shown signs of raising your force to
an equality with tho force" opposed to
it, that moment the ultimatum would
have been issued aud war would have
begun.    (Cheers).
"it is not, therefore, right to say
that there was not adequate military
preparation. The evil dates farther
back. It dates to those unfortunate arrangements in 1881 and 1884 by which
we deliberately permitted a community, ob.'iously hostile, to enjoy the unbounded right of accumulating munitions of war against us. Year aftar
year an aconn mutation of munitions
was made which were effectively directed against ns,
"Hampered bv these arrangements,
it was impossible that we should uvoid
the interval of trial and danger which
necessarily intervened between the
moment when war was declared and
the moment when our foices could accept contest and appear upon the field.
That interval has nearly passed. Our
troops are beginning to arrive. Foreign nations have complimented us
upon the calmness with which we
have received the intelligence of occasional oheoks. Whatever strategy
there might be, wo were well aware
thnt the beginning of our conflict with
the Boots must bo marked by a retire
ment of our troops fiom positions thoy
nre not strong euough to oocupy. It
is necessary that they should wait for
sufficient reinforcements. I do not attempt to forecast the future. I only
say ibat my faith in the British sohi-
ier is unbounded, and I am deeply
gratified to feel that he is iu tho vigorous and sagacious hands of Geueral
Buller,
"Regarding the future, I will only
deprecate some very strange assertions
that I see, occasionally iu the continental press. Only the other day, I
saw it asserted, not by a chance writer, but by a man who has been a
member of a French Government, that
this war had for its objects the gratification of tbe lusts of greedy lords,
who desired to partition among themselves the gold and diamonds of Transvaal. .Now I beg to assure this gentle
mull that Her Majesty's Cabinet have
no bad a farthing from the Tiansvaal
or from any other gold fielus. There is
the Yukon about which there is no
contest. If theie had been any chance
of our gaining advantages, the Yukon
gold fields Should have yielded something, bnt 1 appeal to my trieud Lord
Hamilton to know it the Cabinet
ever had a farthing from them.
(Laughter).
"I go further, England as a whole,
would have no advantage from the
possession of tho gold mines except as
her Government conferred the hless-
ings of good administration upon those
engaged in the industry. All successful
industry breeds commerce, and all
commerce pioduced is to the advantage of England ; and all interests and
commerce flourish better under good
Government than uuder any other in-
gimo iu the world, but that is the
limit of our interest.
"What we flesirs is equal right! for
all men of all races, and seourity for
our fellow sublets and onr Empire,
The hour for asking hy what means
this result can hi obtained is not .vol
cnine, but these nre the objects, and
the only objects, wo seek. We do nol
allow any other consideration to cross
our path. I hnve seen it suggested, and
it seems to me a wild  suggestion, that
the other powers will interfere with
this country and in some form or
oilier dictate to those who are concern;
ed in it as lo what its upshot should
be Don't let any man think it is in
thnt fashion the conflict will he concluded. We shall have to carry it
through ourselves, nnd the interference of anybody else will have no
effect upon it. (Cheers.) In the fust
because we would not accept
and in the second
place, because wo are convinced that
there is no such idea in the minds of
any Government   in the world.
"Within my recollection there have
beeu some live or six great wars in

and   except in   the case

Lord   Salisbury   resumed   his    seat
amidst a tremendous ovation.
London, Nov. 11.���4:130 a. ro.���Complete silence has again fallen upon
affairs in South Africa, and the British public must perforce be content
with a brief story which the censor allows, filed in Capetown. That the
condition of things is no longer due to
pressure of work or defective oables
has been amply proven. The Eastern
Telegraph Company admits that the
delay in transmission is only about
two days. It is evident there ore that
the censorship is responsible for over
two days delay which seem to be the
fault of the despatches. This morning,
bowover, tbo Daily Telegraph announces that its "appropriated" dispatoh from Ladysmith dated Monday, which   the   War   Gffice   publish-
1 on Tuesday, was not delivered in
Fleet street until yesterday (Friday)
morning. It is believed that the War
Oflice received further dispatches and
last evening, but nothing has been
published.

for the infantry assault, bursting
shrapnel all along tho Boer position.
"Thunder clouds gathered behind
the hills and made an omiuous background, against which the lurid light
of the bursting shells showed as if it
were already night. It was evident
that the attack must bo pressed home
before night, so, with half an hour's
preparation, tho infantry received
orders to advance. The Devons were
given tho task of delivering a semi-
frontal attack with 'he Manchesters,
supported by tbe Gordons on tho right
Hank, for which they bad to make a
wide detonr. This was half-past four.
At this period rain fell in deluges for
a quarter of an hour.
"As the infantry attack began the
enemy's guns came into position, and
shelled the advancing lines of tbe Devons, who were uow stolidly pushing
acioss the open,cutting the wire fences
that impeded them. They were extended as much as possible, this beiug
the only method hy wliich the men
could face the Mauser aud Maxim fire.
Nothing could have been finer than
the undaunted front of this battalion
edging forward against tbe fire of
modern arms.
"Having seen the Devons on their
way, I joined the Gordons as, skirting
the batteries in action, they cut in on
tho left of the Manchesters. We marched stsadily on in column companies,
until the bonldered nek of the enemy's
ridge was reached. This was abnnt
three-quarters of a mile from the position of the Boer gnus. In front of the
Gordons were threo sucessive kopjes,
Cambridge I or latt)er ridges, running diagonally
across   the flat top of   the   hill.    Each

us.   We fell or threw ourselves over it.
Still sounded tho call.
"The Highlanders were about iug
above. Cheering madly we were over
a breastwork, and passed a quick-firing
gun still smoking, A Dutchman at
my feet was calling for mercy. We
wore in���were there. Some one shouted, 'Remember Majubal' Over the
brow there was tho sound of skirling
Dines.    The main kopje was taken.
"At 11:30 a. tn., there wur still tiring
below. With 'Majuba' still on their
lips, our men dashed forward to carry
the laager with bayonets, Tbe officers
held back, aud a voice iu command
h:iiii "Cense flru.'
"Again the tingle rang out, and a
white handkerchief fluttered at the end
of a rifle The enemy had surrendered, but the main remnant were pouring over the hillside, where our cavalry pounced upon them,
"It was half-past six. I had just
time to look round tho laager below
tbe. hillside, strewn with dead and
wounded, the Dutch and German gunners being distingisbable by their
brown uniform. They had fought their
guns splendidly. Two of their guns
I saw with ' Maxim-Nordenfelt,' and
the direction in English on the carriages. I had to leave at once, as it was
already night nud we were 20 miles
from the telegraph.
"It is impossible as yet to furnish
details of our losses or those of the enemy, but tbey must be heavy. At midnight the hospital train came hack
carrying 00 of our wounded, but I am
afraid the total will be double that.
This must have been a terrible night.
Many of the wounded could aot have
'leen found till the morning. Glencoe
was a sanguinary engagement, and
this was in every respect equal to it
in bloodshed, but,though the price was
high, the defeat was absolutely crushing, and the moral effect will now
be felt all through the Republics,"

A GRAPHIC ACCOUNT.
The London Times' correspondent
gives the following account of the final
stage of tho battlo of Elands
Laagte:
"Alter tho enemy's guns had censed
firing, our artillery, having now two
batteries in notion,   began   to  prepare
bad fallen fast, but the weigld of nuui
hers carried our troops on.
"It had ceased to be a general's battle ! everything depended on company
ami even on section commanders, uml
gallantly the officers and non-commissioned officers did their work. If the
men wavered and stuck under cover,
the officers sacrificed themselves to fnr-
tush an example, The fighting ou the
ridge summit was of this despriplion ;
it is impossible to give it in detail.
"Tho enemy stood to their positions
with a grim persistency which was
magnificent, and their stand nt thn
last kopje above their camp and laager
was one of tho fines! pieces of fighting
recorded in modern wars. In spite of
the united attack of the storming regiments, training their guns at point-
blank range and discharging the magazines, they cheeked the advance for
half an hour.
"It, was now fi o'clock. Thero was
only half an hour's more light, and
shattered battalions were lying round
tbo kopje where the DUtoh wore making their final stand.

hour while the troops rushed waist
deep in the surf under a heavy but
badly aimed rifle fire from the
insurgent trenches and charged

Filipinos wore captured, mostly noncommissioned officers. Several insurgent dead and five wounded were
found in a building which had suffered considerably from the bombardment.

THE FIRST ROW.
The Tramway Company have not
lost much time in incurring the displeasure of the City. It is only a few
short months since Nelson stood with
hat In hand, inviting the Company to
help themselves to anything they
wanted ; today they are abused like so
many pick-pockets. It will be well to
understand if there is any good reason for this sudden change in the relations between tho two sides. To the
mind of The Miner thero is not, and
if the circumstances had been known
as well as they are now the citizens
wonld have declined to allow themselves to he worked up to tbe pitch of
indignation that has prevailed during
the past day ar two.
The Company have closed the onlv
road that led from the City to the
Great Northern station. That, of
course, caused a great deal of incon
venience, for there is constant com
munioation with the Great Northern
and to have it interrupted is most annoying. Speaking on the subject Aid
Fletcher said : "If they had given us
nine or ten days' notice of their intention to close the rrad we might have
been able to make some arrangement,"
and, by implication, the City would
have been spnred the present inconvenience. Notwithstanding their legal
right to act as they did, the Company
wonld deserve all tbe blame attributed
to them if they had proceeded to ex
tremities without giving reasonabh
notion. Aid. Fletcher says they did

taken imwession that no uotici had
been given tbat the town became
indignant. They gu\e ten days'
warning, and at the same time invited
the City to negotiate au arrangement
by which tbe road might be maintained.
Tho fault, then, would appear to lb
more with the Council than with the
Tramway Company. Indeed, the
Mayor, with that admirable candor
and straightforwardness which have
characterised his official conduct
throughout, admits as much. It would
have been batter, however,if the Company had practised a little more patience. There could be no urgent necessity for such haste. But they are t"
be absolved of the chief blame, and
that is the important thing. Tho significance of the whole incident is that
it gives the appearance of being the
beginning of chronic wrangling between tho Company aud the City. This
is to he regretted. There is no reason
why the relations should not continue
to be of tho most plaasant character.
Under the irritation of the moment,
tho civic authorities have ordered the
Company to conform striotly to the
agreement with respoot to the condition of their lines. This is by wny ol
reprisal, In some other regard ut some
other time the Company will live ap
to some strict letter of the contract
that will not bo so favorable to the
public. And so it will go on. It is
to bo a mutual practice of nagging and
pin-pricking, not the least creditable
to either side. It began in a news-.
paper here, whose views of journalism will not enable it to comprehend j
anything better, and from that it has j
communicated itself to the Company
and to the public. It is a wretched,
childish policy, and the dignity of the
town will he consulted if all parties
concerned decide to discard it at once
The Tramway is here to remain and to
do us good service. Let each side bear
with the other, and when disputes
nrise let them be approached frnnkh
and honorably and with the single d(
sire to adjust tlnm with fairness all
around. If tl ey shall do this tbe town
willhavi no ocouslou to howl itself
into fits of indignation.
can fjivc or refuse a dissolution. We
have never heard that any one disputed this. That is not to say, however,
that Mr. Semlin, in the event of his
defeat, would not bo entitled to ask
foi a dissolution, which is quite another matter. We think he would, and
tbe opinion is bused ou the practice
both In Canada aud Gieat Britain. It
wns undor tbe Premiership of Ml,
Turner the last elections were held.
The Governor said he did not carr.\
tbe Province,and Mr. Semlin was railed upon to form a Government. It
was Mr. Semlin's privilege even then
to ask for a dissolution, if he entertained any doubt of a working majority ; but as be did not, he Iried his
fortune without and got through with
the first session Should dotent overtake him uow be could say to the
Lieutenaut-Goavernor that he desired
a dissolution, believing that he enjoyed tho confidence of the country,and if
faithful to the practice in all such
cases His Honor would be hound to
give it to him. The principle is thai
a Premier is entitled to one general
election, of course the Lieutenant-
Governor has the power to refuse, but
that does not disprove the practice.
The discussion may be an unprofitable
oue, but as the point has been raised it
is just as well that thero be a proper
understanding of it.
Tho Miner strongly urged the Provincial Government to make provision for a mineial display at tlio Earl's
Court Exposition iu London, which
ended with October last. But no
amount of persuasion could move them.
The Exposition was a great success
the attendance running up into the
millions. The British Columbia Review, published in London, thinks the
Province made a great mistake in not
being represented. Other London journals that take a special interest in
Canada have expressed similar opin-
ions. No doubt tbey are right; it was
a mistake, but qnito in line with the
policy pursued by the present Govern
ment in respect to the mining industry. That policy is to injure rathei
than help its development, in which
they havo managed to sneceed so far as
tn throw the whole business into con
fusion.

properly carry on our work. Tho ques-
tion has been solved by tbe letting of
a contract for the building of a wagon
road by wnv of Chatham street. This
is satisfactory to us, and we observe

have temporarily stopped construction
thrugh this piece of property, at a considerable expense und inconvenience to
our compnny, aud will suspend work

CLOSING THE ROADWAY.
Editor Nelson Miner:
Sir���Prom the articles published in
this morning's press, it is evident
there hns been a gront deal of misunderstanding m regard to the position
of tho Nelson Electric Tramway Co.,
in connection with the roadway to Ho
gustown. It seems to us a; pity; that
when the representatives of the City
press interviewed citizens for their
views on this mutter, thnt they did
not cull upon n representative of this
company to Ret the fnets oi' the case as
known hy us. We may sny Hint with
tho exception of the Mayor no one
made a business proposal to us in regard to the matter. We did receive nn
intimation from the Government that
they would pay $2a0 for a (iti-foot road
through our properly, but wo cxolaiiied
that wo could not possibly accept this,
for tho reason thnt to give a road of
this width through this property would
involve on our part the purchase of
further laud in thnt locnlity, uuless we
excavated tbo lots to tbo north and
thus practically destiny tbe vnlue of
the entire property. Had tho poi icy
outlined by the Mayor been followed,
we believe that a satisfactory settlement would hnve been reached aud a
road would have been iu good condition todny. It has been repeatedly
stnted that we did not give sufficient
notice of onr intention to elnse tho
road up, but we would draw attention
tn the fact that our engineer addressed
a letter to the City Council on Octo-
ber nitb, setting forth onr position
fully, and this letter appeared in the
,., luteiis Of vt nr paper, The time
given for action to he taken was
November 1. We allowed this date to
pass without doing anything and lalor
" Looking back.I see I never
saw before."
This is the exclamation of satisfied
customers.
We have fitted successfully stubborn
cases that others have failed in.
Satisfaction guaranteed.
Consultation free.

NELSON DAILY MINER, SATURDAY, NOVEMBER n, 1899.
BLACK HAW GfiODP
HAS BEEN BONDED
Mr. Mansiield Secures the
Slocan City Property.
TO WORK ALL WINTER
heen missing ninco last Sunday. It is
learned that he left on the noon train
on that day for Boston, though efforts
have been made to find him, all have
been unavailing, The assignees of the
failed concern had been at work preparing a statement, but as yet no ays-
tomatic examination of the books haa
been made to see if the accounts are
straight. It is understood that Oeer-
ing loft home without notifying bin
,vifa of his intention. He took none
if hm personal belongings with him.
Cabin., to Bo Built aud Supplies Taken
Up at Once���Two More Claims in
Camp Mansfield Bonded,
Mr   Ernest   Mansfield   does   not let
tbe grass grow under his feet. He has
bonded or staked 12 claims in Camp
Mansiield ibis rammer, and has now
added again to his holdings. When
in Slocan City between two and three
weeks ago he secured an option on the
Black Hawk group,on Ton Mile Creek,
on behalf of his London principals.
Immediately on reaching Nelson he
forwarded his report and yesterdny
evening received a cablegram in reply
instructing bim to take up the property and push development work this
winter. The bond is for $7,000 with a
small cash payment.
The Black Hawk is a galena proposition with excellent surface showings,
and assays as high as 400 ounces iu silver aud 60 per cent lead have beon obtained from the ore. The development
work to date consists chiefly of a 50
foot tunnel driven on the strike of the
vein. This tunnel will be continued
auother 105 feet, while another one will
probably be started lower down at an
early date. There are now three inches
of clean galena in the face of the tunnel, besides concentrating ore. Mr.
Mansfield leaves for Slocau City in the
morning to build cabins, get in supplies aud start work, which will be
continued night and day throoghout
tlie winter. The vendors are Messrs.
Graham and Ray.
The bonding of the Black Hawk will
be good news to Slocan City, being as
it is one more evidence of the great
mineral wealth in the hills surrounding that charmingly situated town.
Like many other places, Slocan City
has had its hard times, but it seems
now to be entering in earnest upon an
indefinite era of deserved prosperity.
Mr. ManBfield expects to return to
Nelson early next week, and will then
proceed to Camp Mansfield by way of
Kaslo to put a forco of men to work on
the Tony and Glacier group in that
camp. These claims were bonded at
the same time as the Black Hawk
group, tbe consideration being $6,000,
Tbe vendors of this group are Messrs.
Bradshaw aud Clongh, of Slocan Ciiy.
The Tony claim adjoins the Joker,and
the Glacier the Bertha Fraction and
Green Lakes. When this force is pnt
to work, Mr. Mansfield will have
about 25 men working at his own
camp.
PARIS PRESS COMMENT.
THE WALTER   SCOTT CLUB.
Mr Choato Makes a Fine Speech at
tho Animal Banquet.
Washington, Nov. 10.���Mr. Joseph
Hodges Choate, the United States Ambassador, who wns the chief guest at
ibe anneal banqnol nf the Walter Scott
Clnb this evening, me! with an enthusiastic leceptioU. Sir Herbert
Maxwell, who presided, made a cordial reference to the friendship between England and America. In the
course of a speech proposing the toast
of literature Mr. Choate said :
"Truly your couutry and mine are
lonnected by bonds of sympathy that
were never stronger and closer than
they are at this very hour. I can as-
nro you that Lord Salisbury's generous
ud cordial words at the Lord Mayor's
banquet yesterday will meet with a
iiuick and hearty response beyond the
Atlantic. It has been said by a great
thinker that 'peace bath her victories
not less renowned than war,' and this
iron-olad friendship which now prevails between the two kindred nations
is its latest and greatest victory. It
means peace, not merely between your
nation aud mine, but among all the
great nations of the earth aud it tends,
hy advancing civilization, to promote
the welfare of the whole humau race."
The remainder of the much applauded
address was devoted to a humorous
comparison of the American and Scottish character, as illustrated in every
day life and to an eulogy of Sir Walter
Scott.
CONTEST  AT RENFREW.
Premier G. W. Ross   Will   Go On the
Stump.
Reufrew, Out., Nov. 10.���The war
is a thing of secondary importance
here just now so keen is the interest
taken in matters political. The Reformers have opened committee rooms
in tbe MoAndrew block. Farther down
Muin street in the Plaunt block are
the rooms of Mr. MoGarry s followers
The Reformers, although saying that
tbey have a sure thing iu this campaign are working with great spirit.
Their first meeting was held at Killa-
loe. It is expected that Hon. G. W.
Ross and other outside help will be
here in tbe course of a few days. Air.
Ross will speak both here and at Am-
prior. The whips of tho party here
pride themselves on the fact that they
hove succeeded in rounding in nearly
nil the bolters, at least all those who
belong to the file of the party. As evidence of tliis they point to Mr. Jamie-
son's nomination of Mr. Latchford.
In the T irv camp everything is hustle and srir. Not since the Ferguson
Mclntyre election hns there beeu such
enthusiasm among the local Conservatives. Mr. MoGarry is out through
the constituency organizing, and so
are several other influent ia] Conservatives.

Leading Papers Take Morlernte Tone
Re Anglo-German Agreement.
Paris, Nor. 10.��� The more important
of tbe Paris papers comment generally
upon the Anglo-German agreement regarding Samoa in a moderate tone.
The Gaulois, while doubting that the
arrangement implies an understanding
relative to general policy, says the
agreement nuder existing circumstances is proof that the relations between the two countries is improving.
The Figaro says: "Once more England has inauoeuverod with superior
skill in a moment critical for her prestige."
The Echo de Paris says the agreement "is a political event. An event,
the importance of which, will only appear little by little."
In the Eclair, Camille Pellntiu advises Fiituco to prepare for a possible
war with England.
HURRICANES IN JAMAICA.
Kingston, Jamaica, Nov. 10.���Com-
munic'ution with the eastern part af
the island, particularly the section beyond the line from Morant Hay to Port
Antonio, inclusive, has heen interrupted since yesteiday. This evening,
however, it is being partially re-established and advices from various points
show that ou Wednesday tho heavy
weather culminated in n tremendous
hurricane, which, during the night,
completely razed the banana and other
cultivated plantations. Portland, St.
Thomas, and Morant Kay aro reported
as severely damaged. Details are anxiously awaited.

To the Editor of The Irish Times:
Sir���On leceipt of evening papers
this dav an announcement appeared to
the effect that Mr. Davitt, M. P.,
was about to resign bis M. P., ship as
a protest ag.inst the Boor war.
A telegram   was   immediately   dis
