Russia and France Avoided
Offending the United

How Each Power Acted Upon
Austria's Proposed Joint
Note.
now is, extremely desirous of maintaining amicable relations with the
United States. Russia never had any
intention ot participating in any collective step in the Spanish-American
dispute, which did not directly concern her. nor did Russia receive any
proposition haviug such action in
view. Indeed, we received no information regarding Austria's alleged
initiative or about an attempt on the
part of any of the powers to interlcrc
in the interest of Spain.

GOOD WILL SHOWN.
Paris. Jan.22.���In view of the statement made by Lord Crannorno, the
llritish under secretary of state for
Foreign affairs, in the House of Commons ou Monday, on the subject of
the reprcsentaticn made to (Ireat
Uritain before and after the outbreak
of the Spanish-American war and the
despatch of the Associated Press from
Iiondun yesterday on tne same subject, the coirespondent of tho Associated Press made inquiry in an
amlioritutive quarter here and received the following explanation
which throws a somewhat different
1 irrht on the question.
In the first place, in the Spanish
negotiations at the end of March,
1893, to secure the intervention of the
powers in her favor, Groat Britain
took the same attitude as France and
the other poivers. She neither renounced nor consented to join In eol-
letivc action. All the powers were
hesitating until they ascertained the
intention of the others. Russia
clinched the matter by the late Count
liuravieff's blunt rejection of the proposal. Subsequently, after General
Woodford's conference with the Spanish premier, and Senor Gullon, tho
Foreign minister, at which the latter
indicated the extent of the surrender
Spain was willing to make to tbe
United States demands, the Anstraiu
government believing that Spain's
surrender was sufficiently complete
to satisfy thc United States,instructed
its ambas-adors to propose to the
European governments that notes tie
presented at Washington urging the
United States to accept Spain's offer
ami avert war.
Tlie Spanish ambassador In London
saw A. J. Balfour, tbe FirBt Lord of
the Ticasury, who must at that time
have been aoting as secretary of state
for Foreign affairs during the absence
of Lord Salisbury at Ileauliou,Fr��nce,
who promised to instruct Lord
Funncefote to aot alone, or with his
col leagues, with the view to maintain
ing peace. No collective action was
agreed upon though Russia, France
and Germany were disposed toward a
movement which would avert un outbreak of hostilities. A few days before the war, howcver,it was declared
that Mr. Halfour had raised the objection to whieh Lord Cranuo me alluded
In the House of Commons on Monday
against any note whion would have
the appearance of putting pressure on
tlie United States, or offering an
opinion on the attitude of the United
States. The Austrian proposition then
fell through, and the subsequent joint
resolution of oongr.iss rendered any
further action out of the question.
This was the extent of Great Britain's
action iu favor of the United States,
The statement of a prominent British Foreign olllee. official, quoted in
the l.i.i-ilou dispatch of the Associated
Press, regaiding France's alleged sup-
pert of the Austrian proposition, is
declared to be incorrect, France did
riot back up tho proposal and the
French ambassador In London confined himself to making un inquiry
as to what view tbe British government took of tho matter, France's attitude thionghout was friendly to tho
United States as well as to Spain. She
took no Initiative in any suggestion
tending to put pressure on the United
States, nor at any time requested
Spain to resist. Her influence was
always directed in tbe poor parlers of
tbe powers to maintaining peace.
St. f'etesburg, Jan. 22.���The corre-
respoudent here of the Associated
1'ress has obtained the following
statement from tho Russian oflice regarding the announcomont made in
the llritish House of Commons on
Monday concerning negotiations between the Powers be fnre and after thc
outbreak of tho Spanish-American
and   the   assertions   made   by a
Expiessions of Good Will   For the U.
S. In the Reichstag.
Berlin, Jan. '.'2.���Fluting the debate
on the estimates of the chancellor's
dopurtinent in the Reichstag today
the Imperial Chancellor Count Van
Ilnelow, referred to the pleasant relations between Germany and lhe
United States and to the approaching
visit of Prince Henry of Prussia.
The chancellor found his opportunity in the remarks of Dr. Barth,
leader of tbe Freisinnige party, who,
in discussing the budget said : I want
to touch upon the political relations
between Germany and the United
States, which are traditionally friendly in character. Ofe hindrance to the
promotion of this friendship in the
protectionism now prevailing in Germany. It is pleasant, ou the other
hand, to see thut the projected visit of
a German prince to tbe United States
bas disclosed the existence of a large
fund of good will, certainly among
the American poople, for Germany.
We recognize in the union not merely
a great and economically effective
community, but we know the achievements of the United States in other
fields such as oiivllzution and culture,
are very important. The cultivation
of the friendship of the two countries
is a thing to be grateful for."
(Applause).
Replying Count Von Buelow said:
I expross my thanks to llr. Barth for
the words and manner iu which he
lias spoken of our relations with the
United States. I still must ask him
not to overestimate the difficulties
from the way in which we formulate our tariff policy. I can only
repeat," continued the chancellor,
''whst I said three years ugo in the
Reichstag, and I believe the views 1
tnen set forth in detail will today
meet with thc concurrence of the
house, namely that we are filled with
an earnest desire to maintain on the
basis of reciprocity and mutual appreciation the traditional good relations
which havo always existed between
ourselves and the United States. The
voyage of Prince Henry to America
is an expression of those good relations, and I am convinced his reception will be in accord with the
friendly feeling the two great naiious
bave for oue another.
The chancellor's statement waa
greeted with prolongod cheors.

New Bridges and Buildings to Be Constructed.���.A. Cradle for Steamers to
Be Made in Nelson.
During the coming summer thc C.
H. R.will spend upward of $250,000 on
betterments of its lines iu West Kootenay and South Yale aod on improved
accommodation for and repairs to the
vessels on Kootenay and   Arrow lake.
This large sum of money will be
distributed from end to end of the
lines, practically every part getting
some. Among the larger individual
expenditures will be tho construction
of a steel and stone bridge on the
Kootenay river about four miles from
Nelson. The siding has already been
built to the rock quarry and the work
of getting out the stone will commence immediately. This work will
require a small alteration in the*roadbed which will remove a curve and
increase the speed at which trains
may n.i- at thut paH of the line. The
expenditure for labor will be a large
proportion of the aggregate cost. Another important work will be tho new
bridge at Slocan crossing. This will
also have stone abutments and steel
superstructure and in ibis work also
the amount of labor to be done will
be large,
river and Grand Forks numerous cuts
will be widened and tbe material
thus obtained used for filling up
bridges that eau be done away with,
and in places curves ��vill be reduoed.
Extensive additions will be made
to tbo siding accommodation at several points in the Boundary, particularly at the Granby smelter where
the yards will be enlaiged. Tbe yaras
at Phoenix ure to be enlarged and
improvements will be made at Eholt.
Much work is also slated tu be done
on the roadbed in the Boundary.
The Nakusp and Slooan line comes
in for its shair and on it several
bridges are to be improved, and out-
tingswidened as well as on tbe Slocan
lake branch.
In addition to these works various
small sidings will be put in, section
und station houses built, fencing done
and smaller Improvement made.
Besides the repairs ordinarily required for the steamers on the lakes it
is the intention of the company to
construct at Nelson a cradle for hauling out the vessels for repair. This is
expected to cost in   the   neighborhood
Various  bridges   on   the  Columbia i0f   $5,000   and will no doubt  prove a

At Castlegar two sidings will be
put in and at Trail smelter also there
will be additional siding accommodation provided end various improvement), made on tbe Bobsou-Rossland
line.

STRIKE GOES
TO A BALLOT
TWO PECULIAR CHIMES.
Stolen Communion Plate Recovered
and a Sloop Stolen.
Vancouver, Jan. it,���Two curious
oases are occupying the attention of
the local police. The first concerns W.
Shebley who was sentenced, two years
agi, to a long term of imprisonment
for rape. During his incarceration
several packages were sent to the jail
trom store rooms whose owners alleged that Shebley had deposited the
same witb tbem for safe keeping.

were found to contain a oommunion
plate stolen from St. James' church,
Vanconver, about three yeBrs Bgo.
Shebley is now being tried for this
theft bnt swears he, never had anything to do with the goods nor did he
deposit any packages in the storerooms in question.
The other case involves a charge uf
piracy, two men having stolen a sloop
and some money from Vanoouver harbor and sailed to Nanaimo where
their arrest was effected. The men
were brought back by the police and
tbe sloop banded over to two sailors
to bring baok. En route the prisoners informed the police that the two
sailors had been originally associated
with them in the theft and thc statement is confirmed inasmuch tnat
neither sailors nor sloup have boen
seen since they left Nanaimo.

A REFORM NEEDED.
The cable news furnished by the
Associated Press is prepared by its
correspondents in the several capitals
ot Europe especially for readers in
the United States. They know that
the republic is peopled principally by
either those who left tha Old World
because of dissatisfaction with the
political or sociHl conditions or their
desceudents, and as a consequence,
thev write so as to cater to the ranial
feuds and political ideals of the people
of the republic What occurs in
Europe which these purveyors of the
news consider fit pabulum for their
republican clientele is put on the
wires and sent across the Atlantic.
The result is much distortion, much
misrepresentation, and it may truly
he said that a vast quantity oi���roisin-
formation is disseminated throughout
the length and breadth of thiB continent by iiiciriH of these oblique
visioned correspondents and the Associated Press. The oorresponents are
not so much to Dlame as they cater to
a public that asks for the sort of
material that is furnished and if they
did not please those who pay for the
news those who would please would
quickly take their places.
These cables are used by the press
of Canada, only two or three of the
leading papers of tlie Dominion receiving special cable service. As a
result of this the cable news disseminated by the press of Canada has a
strong American ilavor and is often
offensive to the people here, who entertain views different lrom those
which attain among the people of the
republic.
As a remedy for this and in order
lhat thc people of Canada may get
their European nows pure and undented it has been frequently suggested
that the Canadian papers form an association on similar lines to the
American Associated Press, aud,
through this medium, obtain its own
special cables from Great llritian and
othor portions of the Old World. The
press of Canada is now catering to the
news wants of Ave and a half millions
of people, and should be financially
able to do this. The wants of a nation
of such importance are worthy of
being looked after in this regard and
Id energctio effort should be made,
and at once,to properly look after ic.
Thc tendency in this, as it has been
in smelting and lead refining, has
been to lian on that which the people
of the United .States have built up.
When the newspaper of Canada tirflt
begins to branch out and to take considerable telegraphic news they found
lhat the Associated Press was established and na.l a splendid Dews service which not only covered the
United States, hut Europe, South
America, and parts ot Asia. Naturally they secured this valuable news
service. For many years they have
been content to take this news arid at
the same time, owing to Its heavy
cost, many of the papers have neglect-
id to cover their home Held us well as
It should be COVerel, and tie re is
today no comprehensive and complete
system in vogue for the gathering and
disseminating the news of the nonunion. As a result of this lamentable
condition of nffaiis the home daily
capers contain every day more tele-
graphc dispatches concerning happenings In the United .States than they do
events in their own country.
Tlii" Is nnt as it should be and an
effort should be made to rlevote more
apace to home events than to those of
the United States. Besides this a
special Canadian cable servioo from
(Ireat Britain and other parts of
Europe should be Inaugurated, This
can be dono by an organization of the
papers of Camilla into an Canadian
Associated Press on a plan similar to
thnt which characterizes the Associated Press in the United .States. When
this is dnnu thn desired improvement
ln   the   news   service of the papers of
Canada, both in   its I and foreign
news, will have been made, but It
will not eventuate until this has been
done.
The   Canadian   Pacific   railway intends   to   spend   $250,000 this year in
betterments  of its system   throughout
the   Kootenays.       This   will   furnish
employment   to a   number of   men, as
most of the amount disbursed will   be
for labor.     The lead refinery plant at
Trail is already   under   way and is to
b3 finished in   May.     When the plant
begins to turn out pig lead the   silver
lead mine owners should receive more
than at present for   their   lead.     The
railway   leading   into   the     Lardeau
section will be completed   by   March.
This will open one of the richest mining sections in British Columbia. The
mines   there will   send   out   a   large
tonnage   of   high grade ore this   year
and add considerably to the prosperity
of   the   country.      The   railway   line
leading from Orano Forks to Republic
will   he finished within a few   weeks
and thia will render the rich mines cf
Republic   section   tributary   to Grand
Forks   so   far as   the reduction ot   its
oies   is   concerned.     The smelter   at
Marysville,   Bast   Kootenay, is being
built, aiid in   a few   months   will   be
finished.    This will cause such mines
as the Sullivan, North   Star   and   St
Eugene ta resume operation, cause the
development ot other mines and bring
renewed   prosperity   to   East   Kootenay.     The British Columbia Southern
is being   constructed   from the Crow's
Nest mines to   Kalispel    and will be
completed iu a few months.    Tbe road
will   be   the avenue   over   which     a
large   quantity   of   British   Columbia
coal   will   find   lis   way   out   ofthe
country.     The   outgoing   coal,   however, will be mined   in   Oanada,   and
its   Drice will stay at home  to enrich
the   country   and   add to the   general
prosperity.     The syndicate wbich intends to erect ircn works near   Kitchener   has  reuently   added to its holdings of iron claims and   intends  just
as  soon   as   the   snow disappears   to
resume  operations   on   tbe claims  on
an enlarged   scale,   with the ultimate
intention of   erecting   immense   steel
and iron making plants.     The enterprise of   the   syndicate promises to be
one of tbe most important yet inaugu
rated in the province.    It will furnish
in time   employment  to  thousands of
men   and   aid   materially   in the up
building ot   British   Columbia.     The
increase in the capacity of the   smelt
ing plants at Grand Forks and Greenwood will soon be completed aud then
these  plants   will   reduce   twice    as
much ore as they Oo now.     This will
of conrse,   enlarge the forces  engaged
in the smelters and in the mines. The
mineral   output   of the  province   last
year was  over   J20,000,000,    bnt   this
year it will   be, closer   to  $30,000,000
than to   $20,000,000.     The   year   has
many   good   things   in   store and   as
copper,   Bilver   ana lead are certain to
advance   during   the   year to   higher
figures   the   outlook   is   much   better
than   tbe pessimistic   would   have us
believe.
The motto of all should be to work
and push the country instead of sitting down and mourning over conditions. If this is done the country
will be more prosperous as all who
are callable of making an effort will
do well.

GOVERNMENT   OWNERSHIP.
The question of government ownership of telegraphs will be brought
before the next Dominion parliament,
The government owns about 2,751 1-2
miles of land lines besides 20'/ 1-2
miles of cable, and in addition to this
the line from Ashcroft to Dawson
The government lines have been run
at h considerable loss for the reason
that they are built over routes which
private companies do not care tu occupy. The line to Dawson is a case
in point. It is certain that it will not
pay for a long time to come, out th
peoplo of Yukon demanded it and it
was built at. great expense by the
government in order to accommodate
them,
Considerable can be said in favor of
government ownership of telegiaphs
aH they constitute something which
everyone uses at onu time or the
oilier. The sending of and receiving
of telegraphic messages should be just
ss much of a function of the government as thu handling of letters and
papers. Governments oan afford
to handle telegrams lor much less
than private companies. Government
ownership prevents nows monopolies
and other evils that inure to private
owners'..ip as the rales are alike to all
and there is no discrimination in
favor of any class.
Tn Gtcat Ilritain and other European
countries government ownership
prevails and besides the land lines
the llritish government owns a number of cables reaching to various parts
of the wui-1 I. In Australia, India and
other British colonies, government
ownership prevails, tho system has
worked to thc advantage of the
people, and nowhere is there agitation
in favor of the old system. Canada,
therefore, will be the last of the British dependencies to wheel into line in
the. matter of govornincnt owned telegraphs, and it is almost certain that
there will be little or no opposition to
the measure if it In brought down hy
the   government. |

COST OF PRODUCING COPPER.
There has been considerable talk as
to the cost of producing copper, and it
is claimed for the Honn.liiry mines,
owing to the easy fluxing of the ores
and the cheapness of mining, as a
result of the unsually large ore
bodies, tho metal can be produced
there for less than anywhere clBe
under these favorable conditions. A
profit, it is claimed, could be made
were copper to sell as low as !) cents.
At the Calumet and lleela copper is
produced fpr 10 l-'l cents per pound,
the Quiucy, in the same distriot as the
Calumet and Hccla, produces copper
for about I'l 1��9 cents, and the Anaconda at Butte at about 8 i-'l cents a
pound. The other mines in the Butte
camp produce copper at from 8 to 9
cents, while at tlie United Verde the
production costs about H cents. The
average cost of the production is,
therefore,trom (I to fl 1-3 cents.

GEORGIAN BAY CANAL.
Its  Construction   Has  Been   Favored
For Many Years Past.
/_ Ferland, thc well known rner-
choDt of tbis city was seen yesterday
and m speaking about the Ottawa and
tlcurgian Bay canal said: "I have
been reading the articles in The Miner
concerning this proposed canal with a
neat deal of interest. Io February,
1806, a deputation of about 200, composed of the mayors, reeves and representatives of different boards of trade
-j a nnmoer of cities, towns and
places, from Quebec City to North
Hay Ont., waited on Premier Bowell.
I was a
from M'uttuwa
sought in interviewing the Dominion
,���veinn:ent was to get assistance far
tin- Georgian Bay canal scheme. At
that time McLeod Stewart, ex-mayor
ot Ottawa, who was the originator of
the pl��n to build the canal,hnd organized a syndicate in England to build
the canal and the syndicate desired
the government to guarantee interest
on tlie bonds to the extent of about
$20000,000, It waa then intended to
construct a canal with a depth of
about 12 feet.
''Premier Bowell received the deputation very favorably and said, as an
humble follower of the late Sir John
MaoJopald, he was heartily in favor
of tlie canal project and promised to
do all he could to further it.
He believed that the time was not
fur distant when the canal would assist in bringing to the markets of the
world the products of the west. He
favored the construction of a canal of
a sufficient depth for the passage of
ocean going vessels that would curry
very large cargoes. It was inferred
form his reply that he thought thc
plans  of   the company were not oom
ire-liensive   enough.      Sir

tided to the canal as an important
national project and concluded by saying that so long as he was in public
life lie would endeavor to assist the
canal as well as all other works
which were in the interest of the
country, Tlie otl.er members of the.
cabinet present on this occasion were
the Hun. John Costigan, Hon. Mr.
Uesjiitdins, Kir Adolph Caron and
Hon. Mr. Ives. Sir Mackenzie Bowell
soon after wont ont of oflice and was
unable, therefore, to Oarry out his
pledges concerning the canal.
"Since then the lion. Mr. Tarte,
minister of public work, has been
taking a deep interest in the project
and is now determined that the government will build it.and it will have
instead ol a depth of 12 feet a depth
of :o feet. Thia will allow the passage of very large vessels, which wiil
be able to load at the several lake
towns aud cross the ocean with their
cargoes. Besides its use to transportation the canal wonld open a fine
agricultural, timber and mineral
country. Another feature would be
the development of a lurge quantity
uf water power which could be turned
into electrical power and sent here
and there over wires t" turn the
wheels for various manufacturing
plants. The country fairly teems with
natural products and especially wood
suitable for pnlp making. The supply
of pulp wood is practically unlimited, and the demand for the commodity being exceedingly large and
increasing all the time.
"It may not be generally known In
the nest but it is a fact tbat the British Admiralty sent a corps of engineers to O.nuda about three years
since who made a survey of the proposed route. It was stated at the time
that this was done so that the canal if
oonstrueted oould be used for naval
purposes. It is a considerable distance
from the border line and would have
groat strategic value.
"Mr. Tarte takes such a deep interest in thc proposed canal that last
Bummer he made the trip in a bark
canoe, accompanied by two of the engineers of the public works department, from Ocorgian Bay to   Ottawa.
"I, in common with many others,
would like to sec this canal built, as
I feel certain that it would confer
quits' as much benefit on Canada as
the construction of the C. P. R. has.
it is a measure which has the hearty
support of nearly all the members, not
only of Quebec,and Ontario,but of the
Northwest territories, Manitoba and
Dritish Columbia." concluded Mr.
Ferland,
the right bank of the Kootenay river,
between the international boundary
and Kootenay Landing, and has an
area of 1831 1-2 acres. The Indians
living on it number itifl, aud depend
chielly on hunting und packing to the
mines for a living. A few of them
are beginning to raise cattle. They
generally put up snflieiont hay to
carry the stock safely through the
winter. Some cultivate little gardens
and are succeeding fairly well. During the year they visit the mining
towns around Kootenay lake and earn
a good deal of money by picking and
selling berries. Tbe women make
moccasins and gloves, which they dispose of readily to the miners. Ail the
Indians of the district in religion are
Roman Catholics, there being a mission church at each uf the reserves,
with a magnificent large church at Ht.
Eugene's village in Kast Kootcuay,
where the Indians from the various
reserves gather to celebrate the chief
festivals of tlie church. The two leading Indians of the lower Kootenay
reserve mentioned in the report are
Anastas and Little Cyprus, whose
farms are spoken of as comparing
very favorably with those of their
white neighbors. The ageut states
that without exception the Indians of
this agency are the most temperate
and moral he knows of. They use no
intoxicants, are law abiding and industrious and their progress is most
satisfactory.

Rival Factions Regin Shooting and
Death and Wounds Follow.
Belleville, Texas, Jan. 22.���Early
this evening an affray occurred here
wbich resulted in three deaths, the
fatal wounding of one and the slight
wounding of three others. The dead

fatally wounded, Walter Pennington
shot through thc bowels, the bullet
going entirely through the body.
Slightly wounded: Elihu Pennington, Antonio Dippert, of Belleville, a
bystander ; John Havkvath, of Sealy,
a bystander.
The circumstances which caused the
battle with its disastrous results,
was the meeting of the Pennington
and Odom factions here today. Walter Pennington, under indlotment for
the murder of John Odom, a brother
of Milam Odom and a half brother of
Raymond White, was being tried in
the district undo large nutno-er of people came here from Walhs as witnesses, among them the relatives of
the deceased. There was no outbreak
until the parties met at tbe depot
where a large crowd of people assembled awaiting the train. Just how the
affair started no one seems to know
definitely, bnt it is claimed that the
first hostile act was committed by the
Odom faction. The first person
wounded waH Walter Pennington, He
opened fire and in an instant the
shooting becawe general. The two
Dipperts were stanoing together und
had no chance to get under cover.
Henry was struck by a bullet and
dropped dead where be stood. Anto-
ine s wouud is in the side and it is
believed will not prove dangerous.
Uavkvath was shot while trying to
get out of range. When tbe shouting
ceased it was fouud that White nnd
Odom had been instantly killed,
White dying with his pistol cocked
and ready to fire. He und Odoru were
lying close togethetr. Walter Pennington was carried to thc hotel
where he now lies in a dying con-
dtion. His father Elihu Pennington,
was struck only once,the ball ploughing through his hair under the scalp
on the lull side of his head.
