GREAT VICTORY
WON AT BELMONT
General Lord Methuen Scores His First
Great Success.
GUARDS WIN WITH BAYONET CHARGE
Casualties Amount to 234 Men Killed, Wounded and
Missing*���Three Ridges Carried.- Heavy Boer
Loss-���General War News.
London, Nov. 24.-5 a. in.���Before
anxiety us to the situation in Natal has
been relieved, tliero comes news of a
great battle at Belmont. This has
happened sooner than was expected.
Only tha official account is yet to
hand, but so far as can be gathered, the
fighting appears to have been almost
a repetition of the battle of Elands-
laagte. A dispatch of the previous
day estimated that the Boers in that
vicinity numbered 8,000 und that they
had live guns and judging from the
absence of a statement to
tbe contrary in the official dispatch,
it is helieved that the British were
slightly superior in numbers to the enemy.
Tne Boers had chosen a position
with their customary skill and were
strongly entrenched. The British
wero (.bilged to carry three ridges in
succession. Apparently the Guards
bore tbe brunt in carrying the last
ridge by a bayonet charge after its defenders had been shaken wilh shrapnel. Nothing is said as to whether
the positions thus gained wero held,
aud the destruction of ammunition
seems tn indicate that the contrary
was the case. While General Methuen
can be congratnlated upon a brilliant
victory, it is wilh a cost of heavy loss
of officers and men.
The diary,of events at Mafeking up
to Nov. IT) has nrived. It gives' little
that is new. At thnt date Colonel
Baden-Powell had no idea of being re-
irrTfrT for a fortnight or pel haps for a
month. Both Mafeking and Kimberley, however, seem to be quiet.
Later details regarding tbe Arundel
reccunaisanee say that the Boers there
were engage! in destroying the railway. One account of the affair says
that after the retirement an ambulance
train with doctors was sent out from
Naauwpoort. If this were so, the
British casualties must have exceeded
three.
The situation in Natal remains obscure. Fighting is reported at both
Estcourt and Ladysmith. It was at
first reported that heavy firing had
been beard in tbe direction of Willow
Grange, leading to a belief that Gen-
eial Hildyard had made a sortie, later
dispatches announce that White sortied
from Ladysmi'h and inflicted a demoralizing defeat Upon the Boers.
It would he premature to give full
credence to either report. What is
quite oertain Is that Ladysmith, Kstconrt and Mooi Kiver stations aro all
isolated, and the Boors seem able, after detaching enough to bold three
British lorees, aggregating 11,00(1, to
push on toward Pietermaril/.hurg with
some 7,000 men. A disquieting feature of the whole campaign is the fact
that tho whole of the advancing British generals report meeting tho Beors
in force.
In view of tho success of General
Jcubert iu partially paralyzing the relief columns, tho question is being
nsked what would have happened had
he, at the outset of the war, instead of
sitting down before Ladysmith, pushed
on to Pietermarif/.burg. General Gat-
acre's reports that the Dutch are vising, cause public anxiety as it tends to
confirm rumors that have long been
current.
A speeial dispatch from Dnrban announces that more big naval guns
were luuded Wednesday and hurried to
the front, Prince Christian Victor left
Mooi River beforo it was invested,
hearing dispatches to Pietermaril/.hurg.
Late last evening, it was asserted at
Aldershot that tho sixth division, now
in prooeH )f mobilization, will be   re
quired for active service. Some of the
yeomanry regiments have been warned
for mobilization, owing to the scarcity
of cavalry in Africa. It is also reported that another brigade of horse artillery will be mobilized.
THE OFFICIAL   ACCOUNT.
London, Nov. 23. ���The Secretary of
War has received tho following dispatch through General Forrester Walker from Genernl Methneu, dated Belmont, November 38:
"Attacked the enemy at daybreak
this morning. He was in a strong position. Three ridges were carried iu

London, Nov. 23.���The War Office
has received the following from General Forester Walker of Capetown :
"General Gatacre reports having yas-
terday (Wednesday) encamped a battalion of infantry near Putter's kraal,
and that reinforcements of mounted
tioops .vith half a battalion of infantry
airived at the same   camp today."
The Dutch rising continues iu the

A British force 200 stiong consisting of
mounted infantry and police with a
few cavalry, partly in-trained, recon-
uoitered toward Colesburg today under
General French and accomplished 108

party of Boers concealed on a hill,
Three men were wounded.

London, Nov. 23.-The Admiralty
announces that the First Dragoons left
Capetown today for Durhan to reinforce General Clery whose advance is
delayed by lack of cavalry.
London, Nov. 23.-The War Olllce
this ovening issued a dispatoh from
Capatown; which is a brief official
diary of events at Kimberley from No-
vember 12 to 17. It shows that no serious engagement oecuned between
these dates, that tho British losses have
beeu infinitely small, and that the
Boer's were probably very small. The
final entry indicates that the Boers,
anticipating the advance of the roliof
column under General Methuen, havo
taken up defensive positions to tho
south   of   the   town.    The  dispatches

Capetown, Nov. 23.���Sir Alfred Milner has isued a proclamation to the
people of tho Colony, in the course of
which he says:
"It is my duty to dispel false reports
regarding the policy and intentions of
tho Imperial Government. Misleading
statements from beyond the border represent the Imperial authorities as desiring to oppress the Dutch, and the idea
has spread that the Dutch will bo deprived of (heir constitutional rights.
This is absolutely untrue. The Imperial Government desires the greatest
freedom of self government for hoth
Dutch and British, and the extension,
not the curtailment of their eonstitu
tional rights, which are solely endangered by rebellion. The Innierial Government keeps firmly to the principles
of equal freedom for all loyal colonists."
Grange Kiver, Nov. 23.���Noon.���An
engagement was started on the other
side of Witleputs, just above Orange
Kiver, this morning, and lhe liritish
artillery, succeeded in forcing the enemy to retire.
Tho following is the official communication issued to the press respecting it :
"Artillery liriug commenced at 4 :4ii
a. m. iu the hills bearing east, northeast from Orange Kiver, at an estimated distance of 12 miles. It ceased ut 7
o'clock, the enemy rotiring to the
hills on the skyline, beating cast,
northeast at nn estimated distance of
ir> miles from here. The enemy is firing again."
Tho foregoing is apparently the beginning of a full description.
NATIVES WILL NOT RISE.
London, Nov. 23. ���An official dis-
p'ltoh from Sir Alfred Milner to Mr.
Chamberlain reports that thus far the
efforts of the Boers to provoke au uprising among the Uasutos, or to start
a civil war have been unsuccessful,
The Boers informed Chief Jonathan

his fellow tribesmen to pass freely into

BRITAIN'S INTENTIONS.
Loudon, Nov. 24.���The Daily Chronicle says:
"We learn that the cabinet has decided that the basis of settlement in
South Afrioa will be a united South
Africa modelled upon the Canadian
plan. The details have not yet been
settled but it is practically certain
that no terms of peace will be accepted by the British Government, short of
the Britisli occupation of Pretoria aud
Bloemfontein.
PRISONERS COMFORTABLE.
Chicago, III., Nov. 23���A Capetown
dispatch to the Record, says:
"J. J. G. Stowe, United States Consul Genera] at Capetown, today received a telegram from United States Consul Macrum, at Pretoria, reporting
that tho British prisoners held there
are in excellent condition, there being
no disease among them, as was leport-
ed. The officers chafo, however, under
confinement, desiring release on parole. Mr. Stowe also inspected the
prisoner's quarters at Bimonstown,
south of this city, where the IJoers
captuied in battle are confined, He
found they also are well treated and in
excellent health, but eagerly broking
forward to an exchange and the chance
ot another go at the British.
THE TRIPLE ADVANCE.
London, Nov. 23.���Three British
generals will vie with each other in
the next ten days in trying to win
glory against the Boers. While they
are eo-operating in a movement which
has tactionl unity in it* progress,
their commands, as far as immediate
objectives are concerned are independent of each other. As a result of this,
rivalry among them is inevitable, and
the military clubs here will follow the
three campaigns with the keenest interest. Tho three enmmanoors aro Major General Charles F. Clery, in Natal, who will lead the advance to relievo Ladysmith ; Majm General Paul
S, Methuen, commanding the dying
column which has already started to
relieve Kiinlx-rloy ; and Major Geueral
William F. Gatacre, commanding the
Brilish lorees at Ijni-enslowii, In] central Cape Colony, who will push forward to the Orange Free State borders, with the object of diverting the
liners from the twtiBritish movements
to the east and west. All three generals have served with distinction in
India, Egypt, or South Africa. Clery
ia an authority on tactics. Methuen
has commanded the Bechuaiiahmil
Horse,and knows as much as the Boers
about South African fighting; Gatacre is an nil round lighter, who has
seen long service in India and fought
with Kit"hener in Egypt.
The two lelief expeditions will hold
publio Interest from the start. They
are of two widely different characters,
Clery, in Natal, is preparing to lead
an army of horse, foot and dragoons,
with heavy guns, up through tortuom
passes where his advances will be stubbornly contested. His ability will bo
tested to the utmost, and hiH roooest
will accrue to l.ini gradually culminating in the wresting of Ladysmith from
the lloers.    Methuen's   advance   to le-

The main treaty is trilateral in character, between the United States,
Great Britain and Germany by which
the territorial arrangement of tho islands is fixed. It is quite brief, comprising onlv four or live articles, Unessential features being that Great .
Britain and Get many renounce all
claims and interests in the iBlaud of
Tutuila and the outlying islands,
which go to the United States, and
this Government and Great Britain
renounce all iutciest in Upola and ha-
vila, which go to the Germans. The
present indications are that the treaty-
will be signed in Washington, iu
which case Secretary Hayes, Ambassadors Pauncefote and Von Holleben
will be the signatory parties, although
it is still possible that the execution
of the document mny occur in Loudon.
The second treaty is between Great
Britain nnd Germany and is longer
than the firs", covering the rights and
interests in the Tonga aud Solomon Islands and other settlements brought
about by the Saraoan partition. The
Unitid States does not sjgn this
treaty, and Is only indirectly concerned. It is understood thnt this collateral
treaty lias already beeu executed in
Berlin, and that signing of the trilateral treaty will bring to a close the
negotiations for the division of the islands.

MISSING THE POINT.
The Vancouver Province is not disposed to sympathise with an intemperate attack on the mine owners which
appeared 111 a recent issue of The Revelstoke Mail, bnt in i'.-: rnmroents it
exposes a prejudice of its own which Is
much to he regretted, ll says:
"By the mine-owners' own admissions
it appears that thev havo been enable
to secure men to work for the offered
wages, and they are not at all likely
to be allowed to import inferior labor
under contract. If the Union is able
to impose its own terms, as the owners are forced to admit, what, difference does the length of the day make''"
The Province may put a high estimate on tbe ability and honesty of the
present Government, hut is it worth
while to encourage an agitation that
threatens serious consequences merely
because of a desire to maintain any
particular faction in power? Our
contemporary does not seem to realise
the extreme gravity of the situation.
The length of the day may be a trilling matter, although if as immaterial
as suggested here the wonder is the
Legislature did not cut it down to six
boors, or four hours, or to nothing at
all. We beg to assure it that in the
estimation of the owners, who pay the
wages, it makes a good deul of difference whether the day is oue of ten
hours or of eight, especially when the
same scale is demanded for both. If
the miners wero liberally paid under
the old law, os they were themselves
ready enough to admit while working
under it, it should be ohvious to auy
understanding that they are insisting
on an injustice in their present demands.
It is not a question of an hour or
two, however, although that is hy no
means a tiifiing one. It is the spirit
that is behind all this agitation. Hns
the Vancouver paper ever seriously attempted to realise what it would mean
if that spirit were to triumph'/ It
was strong enough to influence members of the Legislature to pass the law
that has caused all these troubles; but
members of the Legislature aro neither patriots nor statesmen, and as long
as they could see iu it some votes for
themselves they were satisfied. On
what principle of moral or business
right is it expected that the mine
owners shall surrender to it'J They
have not been wholly successful in manning their mines in opposition to the
Unions; if they had been, the trouble
would be at au end. But is it a enme
to endeavor to do so? They had been
paying a just wage for ten hours'
work ; alien agitators came in, got the
day reduced to eight hours, and then
put in a demand for the same pay.
Do the interests of the owners count
for nothing? If these agitators nre
permitted to impose their own terms,
how long does any one who knows the
situation suppose if would be until
Kootenay and Yale became anothei
Coeur d'Alene? The owners wonld
not havo the life of a dogjbusinBRS
would become demoralised iu the geueral alarm, and capital would give us a
wide berth.
That is the situation in prospect, nnd
whether intended or not it is the one
our Vancouver contemporaiy Is aiding
to bring about. The Unions may uot
yield, and Ihe owners in spite of theiu
may not be able to secure men to work
their mines. This phase of the situation may be prolonged, to the greut loss
of all concerned. But that is not tho
question of greatest importance just
now. It is of more interest to know
whether the Government intend to introduce some modification of the law
that ha., created this disturbance, and
behind which is lurking the evil spirit
that wonld introduce into this Province the murderous violence that has
brought such loss, misery, and disgrace
on a neighboring State.
cauce, not only in establishing Grand
Forks as a natural suioltiug oontre,
but in demonstrating the vast ore re-
Bourcrs of the country. Tbe smelting
industry at Rossland started off with
a plant at Trail in 1695, which had a
single blast furnace of abont 2ol) tons
capacity. Here we aro in tbe Boundary country, beginning with a combined capacity of 700 tons at Grand
Forks and 350 Ions ut Greenwood, or a
total of 860 ton:; a day. By the first
of next March the Canadian Pacific
will be bringing down to Grand Forks
nearly lour (rain loads of ore per day,
counting ���>{) tons to the car and ten
cars to a traiu. It niny cause a smile
of incredulity in some quarters when
we say ibis will be but the beginning.
Tho increase will he measured simply
by tin' ability to make the necessary
obanges to accommodate the increase,
We have the orr-. There is no question about that. Thero is enough ore
in sight at Phoenix camp alone to slippy ;i,00ii tons a day just as easily as
TOO. The ore bodies opened in that
camp are simply amazing. They are
beyond all precedent and they nre going to astound the whole mining
world. We have a whole Stnte of
Colorado right hero in a radius of '.'5
miles, aud something better than Colorado, for instead of silver nnd lead
wo have gold and copper."
No place will rejoice more than
NslsOU at the splendid development
that is opening so auspiciously for the
Grand Forks reeion. It occurs to us,
however, thai with all this ore in
sight it ought onl io br> necessai'3 to
hold over the whole of il until those
new smelters nre in operation. If the
C. P. R. were as mindful of the general interests ns it; might be and is
expected to be, it would make it possi
hie to have a portion of that ore treated
in Nelson. At present the rate for
hauling puts this out of the question.
Tho Railway Company could afford
to sacrifice something on freights, for
the improved Industrial conditions
that would follow would more than
recoup any loss it might thus sustain.
The Slocan mines arc closed just
now, and if the Railway would do
what is in its power to relieve the consequent stagnation, and thus restore
a measure of prosperity to the mining
industry,it would be doing a service to
itself and the community generally.
Says The New Denver Ledge :
"Tho Dominion Government has
taken prompt action to prevent the
further importation of alien labor.
The sending of Commissioner Clute to
look into the matter will quickly stop
any more Dagoes coming in, and give
to the Canadian miners a fair chance
to win the contest waged so hotly in
the Slocan."
Quite so; but. how about the American miners, who arc as much alien in
the eye of t'-ie law as the Italians?
Mr. Clute's coming probably means no
more than a cunning cast for votes,
and that nothing else will grow out of
it; but should his mission develop into Berious work, il may be that (he

SMELTING.
The Miner of Grand Forks is chuck
ling with delight ut lhe prospect of a
sec md smelter. In addition to the
Granby, with a 'capacity of 500 tons
a day, a company of business men
hailing from Denver, Colorado, am
about to erect a plant capablo of treating !300 tons a day. By March 1st
Grand Forks expects to have in full
Operation smelting facilities for 700
tons daily treatment, Wo ure not surprised thnt The Miner rejoices at the
outlook :
"Tbe scouring of a second   smelting
plant for this place is ot groat  signill-
It is said thnt there is a scarcity of
Canadian silver coins. There can be
no excuse for this, as the melal is both
plentiful aud cheap, and the 'Government makes a neat little profit on the
minting of it. With suoh an inducement the wonder is, not that thore is a
scarcity of coins, but. rather that the
country is not flooded with thom.

THE CITY WHARF
IS   PRONOUNCED   A   SOJROE
DANGER AND  TROUBLE.
OF
A Petition in Circulation Dulling Ujion the
Oorj oration to Raise Money to
Put it iu Repair.
For a Ioiir time past the dangerous
condition of tho City Wharf linn linen
the tlienie of all whose business brings
them iu connection with the rotten
uti notore. As all the steamers plying
on the lake tie up at tho wharf and receive and unload the major portion of
their cargo and passengers there, tho
traffic is greater, perhaps, than on any
thoroughfare in the Oity. The wharf
was recently taken over by the Oity
in a wretched condition, and since
then littlo if anything has been dono
to keep it oven in the stato of repair it,
was then in. The planking is worn
almost to a shell,and where the planks
have givo way tho teamsters, for their
own safety, havo here and there placed
a slab from the mill or a piece of cord-
wood. Still thera are holes iu the
roadway that ore positively dangerous.
Should an accident occur, there is no
doubt tho City would bo liable. At
tho recent meeting of tho Board of
Trade a resolution was adopted calling
attention to the matter, and asking
the Council to raise funds hy by law
to put tho wharf iu repair. The subject was discussed at Monday's meeting oi the Board of Aldermen, but
there was an evident disposition lo
shirk responsibility in the matter aud
to ieave the wharf with all it dangers
as a legacy to tbo incoming Council.
It is not at all improbable that long
beforo tbo present incumbents of office
tin ish their term some accident will
happen at the wharf wliich will let the
City in for substantial damages���a sum
sufficient perhaps, to put the structure in repair. Forewarned is forearmed���the Mayor and Aldermen know
the danger they are incurring, but do
not seem to make any practical effort to
avert it. A petition is now going rhe
rounds, and is being freely signed by
lootd merchants,calling upon the Council to take immediate action, and to
Mibmit the by-law to raise the necessary funds at the samo time as the
monetary by-laws on which the ratepayers will be called upon to vote on
December 5. It is estimated that to
make the wharf the width of Hall
Street and replank it would cost from
|0,000 to 18,000 and there appears to bo
a general feeling that this should be
done, At present there is not room
for a team to turn cn the wharf unless
at tho end, anil it is not safe to go
that fur.
whom aieeugnged in the development
work which is necessary before tile Ira-
mense deposits can yield Ihe large
daily output which is being increasingly required of them. The company
is now opening up a new camp at
Mitchell Cresk where largo deposits of
coal exist, and a side track has been
built to it from the main line. The
net result seems to be that, until the
development of the mines has caught
up with the demand, local consumers
will have to exeroise patience if the
coal ordered is not hers on tiins.

INFORMATION WANTED.
A Variety of Statistical Information
Called For as lo Nelson.
There soems to be a gentleman in
town who is anxious to let tho world
know what is being done in Nelson.
He is gathering statistics of the inland
capital, bnt seems to think thnt tbo
public ollicials have plenty of tinio at
their disposal and are over anxious to
assist him iu bis enterprise. It is not
known whether tbe gentleman in question wants to work up some adverlis.
ing "fake" or not, but ho oertainly
soems disposed to lighten his labors at
tbe expense of the public officers Ho
writes to tbe City Clerk asking that
official to compile statistics for a series of years, and np to date, os to the
City's assessment, amount of taxes collected, total debenture or other debt,
railway receipts, number of men employed in and around the City, other
receipts suoh as licenses, water rates,
number of ratepayers, number of children attending school, number of
teachers engaged in directing the
young ideas how to shoot, and '"such
other statistics as may suggest themselves." Under the latter heading
would possibly come thu number of
nickel-in-tho-slot machines in operation, number of miners wearing boiled
shirts, number of suckers who won
Australian Salesman watches or cigars, and tho percentage of the population who use oatmeal porridge at
breakfast. It will require a special
by-law to provide funds to compile the
information asked for. The letter is
dated from Nelson and is signed O

CROW'S NEST COAL.
Why it is Not   Delivered   as   Fast   as
Consumers Might Wish.
Many people just now are complaining that their orders for Crow's Nest.
Coal are not filled as fast as they could
wish, and are asking what is the reason why. The chief roason seems to
lie in tho excellence of the product,
which is uow acknowledged to bo the
best Rtoam coal to be found on this
continent. Tho result is that heavy
orders are ponriug in on all sides. Not
only do the looul locomotives use it,
but contracts for coke have been made

well as the local works, whilo the Ad- Uibly it was made at the same time ns

cards aud souvenirs that are worthy of
attention. While forming suitable
aud seasonable rememberances, they
aie also good advertisements of Nelson. The folding post, card, the interior showing nine views of Nelson and

There is a general complaint as to
the number of noises und cattle tbat
are allowed to roam at large through
the Oity, und peop'e are askiug if
there is a poundkeeper, and if so,what
aie bis duties. Enquiry at tho City
Hall goes to show that there is supposed to be u poundkeeper who works
on commission,but there is not enough
in the job to give him any keen interest iu it. It might be as well to pay
the. man and have the work done.

town on behalf of the wife aud family
of Albert Jeffries, who recently had to
havo his arm amputated as the result of a gun shot accident. There
are three children in tho family, the

are practically helpless. A little help,
to enable Mrs. Jeffries to keep iho wolf
from the door until her husband can
get about again, is urgently needed
and should be cheerfully given.

resneet to tho employment of Provincial prisoners in the breaking cf

an   arrangement.    Pes-
are George M. Davis, who makes a
living as a violin player: Julius Wolf,
who is and has been a nurse at the hospital; C. Nisbith, who is a painter by
trade, and runs a fruit store; J,
Llyod, a steamboat deck-hand; John
McDonald, a well known teamster;
Walter Smith, n street laborer, and
several others whom no person would
ever suspect of being miners. If llie
Miners' Unions of other camps are
similarly constituted the minors havo
a real grievance to remedy.
Kuniiiel Morton was up in Police
Court yesterday morning on the old
oharge���drunkenness. Samuel entered
a plea of not guilty, and protested that
he was going quietly and peaceably
bumc without the slightest semblance
of a "jug," when ;��� oonstnble arrested |
him. According to the prisoner's story
it wns the constable who had taken too
freely ol' ������the cup that Cheers, lint yet
inebriates." Unfortunately for Morton his name was on the records before, and he was fined (B or ten days.
Funds were exhausted so that he w"ill
probably make himself useful about the
lockup for tlie term prescribed.

said to dislike. His troops are in the

Meanwhile Gatnore with a body of
regulars and local volunteers will attempt to force the Boers from northern ,
Cape Oolony, capture tbe border towns j
nnd push on into Orange Free State

tract as much attention as that of Me-

Mother and Three Children Killed nnd
Mutilated,
Williamsport. Pa., Nov. 38.���The
horribly mutilated bodies of a woman
and her three children were found this
iveuing ut their borne on a small farm
about a mile from the town of Montgomery, in this county.
A short time ngo a pedlar named
Hummel] married the widow of a fur-
mer and took up his residence with her
on the farm. The widow hnd three
chidren. l?or the past week neighbors p.issing the farm noticed that
there were no signs of habitation. An
investigation was mado today, aud to
the horror of the iu-esfigntors the
boiies of two of the children wero
found hidden beneath a straw stack.
On going into the house the bodies of
the mother and the other child were
found lying in the sleeping apartment. Hummel! was seen at Montgomery yesterday, but nothing is
known of his whereabouts since that
time.
THE STEAMER COQUETTE.
Has Gone Ashore. Eleven of Her
Crew Still Missing.
Chiistiansand, Nov. 2:1. ���Word is received here from|Brutvar that the British steamer Coquette from Quebec for
Sunderland after drifting since November 19, the day she was abandoned by
the captain aud crew, has gone ashore
near here. She has been examined
and her bottom wns found injured, in
addition to some minor damages.
There is little hope of salvage as tho
stranded steamer is in n difficult position to work upon. The eleven members of her crew who left the Ooqnette
in the second bout when she wns
abandoned   have not   been heard from
Dr. Von Holleben on the Wnr nnd the
Emperor's Visit.
Washington, Nov. 2!!.���The German
Ambassador, Dr. Von Holleben, in the
course of an informal talk todny with
a representative of the Associated Press
spoke of his recent visit to Europe
nnd of some of hi3 observations there
on the trend of sentiment concerning
international questions. Concerning
the war in South Africa, the Ambassador snid :
"The sentiment in Europe BO farusl
was able to observe is one of profound
public, interest and complete neutrality. In a conflict oil this character, the
public tnkes sides. It is the same ns
here in the United States, for I huve
noticed since my return that opinion
is divided here. This public sentiment
in Germany and elsewhere, simply
shows the free play which is given to
individual opinion, but this is quite
different from the attitude of the Gov-
rnment which is scrupulously pure,
neither showing favor or disfavor to
either side. And, so far as I observed,
this is tbe attitude throughout Europe. For while there has been much
loose conjecture iu tbe press concerning intervention, such a step does not
seem to hnve bnd the slightest consideration in official quarters."
The Ambassador was asked concerning Emperor William's present
visit to England and tbe significance
Which was beiug attached to it.
"This visit," he said, "was arranged sometime Inst summer, and I huve
reason to believe it is u family nnd private trip. But I suppose it is quite
natural that members of the Imperial
party should show attention und en-
thnsiaHin, aud if ut present gossips
draw a deduotion, contiibuting to the
existing good feeling, it certainly will
be most, welcome."

Mr. S. H. Hoys, superintendent of
