Berlin, Dec. 80.���The German
Foreign office authorizes the Associated Press to announce there is no
truth whatever in the despatches from
Caracas saying that the German min
ister has left the Venezuelan capital
afler a heated exchange of words with
Presidnet Castro. The German charge
d'affaires, Herr Von Pilgrim-Ballazi,
is still at his post and is continuing
neeotiationB with President Castro.
There has not been any question of
breaking off diplomatic relations with
Venezuela. The German minister to
Venezuela, Dr. O. Schmidt-Leda who
has been on a vacation here,is now on
his way to Caracas.
The Foreign office again solemnly
reiterates tbe statement that it does
not contemplate territorial acquisition in Venezuela. Replying to Germany's utterances to the United States
regarding the formers' plans in connection with Veneuela, the Foreign
office here has received an answer
from Secretary Hay expressing full
satisfaction with Germany's position.
Germany still hopes to oolleot her
claims peaceably.
The Tageblatt, tbis evening.prints a
double leaded cable from Washington
setting forth that the principal military and naval authorities there consider that the war between the United
States and Germany, sooner or later is
inevitable. The United States Ambassador Andrew D. White, today informed tho German newspapermen
who called at the embassy that the
reports of the possibility of war between the United States and Germany,
were the "thinnest kind of sensational nonsense." Not one of the
authorities referred to in the Tagblatt
despatch, he added, would under any
circumstances disclose such an opinion, least of all when the relations
bewteen the two countries are so good
88 at present. Moreover, said Mr.
White, President Roosevelt, the com-
mauder-in-chiet of both the army and
the navy, it is well known, entertains
not only official personal predilections
fur Germany, whieh have beeu made
known, nut only officially to the
German government but which have
long beon known among his friends.
He studied in Germany, reads and
loves German literature and has a
most sincere personal respect tor the
German emperor. Auy utterance of
the kind alleged, by au officer of
either service, would be sternly rebuked by President Roosevelt.
WANTS MANAGER K1KED.
Venezuela Accuses Berr Knoop of
Helping the Insurgents.
Caracas, Dec. 30.���The Venezuelan
government has sent a request to Berlin that Herr Knopp, manager of tbe
German railway board,be discharged.
It is said the manager will be expelled. The official gazette published
today contains a resolution of the
Venezuelan government setting forth
that Herr Knoop is unfit any longer to
deal with the government as he is an
accomplice in the present revolution
and must be discharged. The resolution further pays that Herr Knoop
will probably be expelled from Venezuela, Traffic over the German railway continues to be suspended. It
can be stud upon excellent authority
that Germany's contemplated naval
demonstration against certain Venezuelan ports will be postponed until
the termination of the present revolution against President Castro.

GERMAN CRUISEKS LEAVE.
Several Vessels Prepare to Menace the
Venezuelan Coast.
Berlin, Dec. 30.���The small Oerinun
cruiser Gazelle was today ordered to
sail immediately from Kiel to Vene-
uzela waters. The government intends to send one or two other small
warships to reinforce the present German squadron in the Caribbean seu.
Tho additions to Germany's naval
force In the Caribbean will not be
sufficient to give rise to suspicions
among the people of the United
States that Germany mediates anything teyonl the collection of claims
due German subjects. The German
government desires beyond anything
else in this mutter to avoid disturbing the government or the people of
the United States. Tho German newspapers published today articles full of
expressions of this kind and many of
these expressions are so much alike
that it is easy to infer their utterance
was suggested by the government. A
remarkable thing is the fact that
there is not a single unkind expression towards the United States in any
of this newspaper comment. Even the
dispatch from Washington to a New
York newspaper, printed yesterday to
the effect that persons of importance
in the war and navy departments consider war between Germany and the
Unitod States to be inevitable has
been reproduced everywhere   through-
Practically All the Republics  Read to
S'gn Arbitration Convention.
Washington, Dec. 30.���The state
department received a despatch from
Mexico city making clear for the first
time what is to be expected on the
subjeot of abritn.tiun which has been
the most important and the most
difficult problem before the congress
of American republics. The advices
came from Mr. Buchanan, the American delegate who was assigned to look
after this particular question. He
status that an agreement on the lines
of The Hague conference appears to
be favored by the majority of the republics and that this probably will be
the basis of action to be taken by the
congress. He also states that the
republics which desire to get
further than The Hague agreement
very likely will sign _n independent
convention for compulsory arbitration. The congress is rapidly drawing
to a close and another fortnight will
probably bring a final adjournment.
The understanding here is that the
following countries are favorable to
arbitration according to The Hague
plan, namely the United States,
Mexico, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador,
Hayti, Nicaragua, Salvador, 3osta
Rica and Honduras. There is some
dmiiit as to Brazil aud Guatamela, but
the latter is expected to join the other
Central American countries in favor
of non-compulsory arbitration. The
countries which sign an independent
convention for compulsory arbitration
ure Argentina, Venezuela, San
Domingo, Peru, Bolivia, Uruguay and
Paraguay. That Venezuela should
favor compulsory arbitration causes
some surprise here, but it iB said to
be due to President Castro's desire to
force the Colombia controversy to arbitration. The position of San
Domingo grows out of her boundary
difficulty with Hayti. This was referred to the Pope, but as satisfactory
progress has not been made, San
Domingo now wants compulsory arbitration.
In case The Hague convention is
accepted as the basis of an agreem. ut
It will provide means and a moral influence for adjusting various differences by arbitration and yet each
country will be left free to determine
whether arbitration shall be applied
to any caBe in which It  is   concorned.
FLOODS ON SUSQUEHANNA.

place close to the river have abandoned their homes and taken to high

Toledo, Ohio, Doc. 30.���Fire tonight
totally  destroyed   the  Casino theatre,
Mauniee Hay,   four   miles  below this
city. It was built at a cost of (50,000.
London, Dec. 30.���Commenting on
the statement of the Washington correspondent concerning the probability
that Secretary of State Hay and Lord
Pauncefote, British ambassador at
Washington, are arranging a commission in which the United States, Great
Britain and Canada will be represented for the settlement of the Alaskan
boundary and other outstanding difficulties between the countries in question, the Daily Mai I thinks that having secured the Isthmian canal treaty,
without an equivalent the United
States should now prove reasonable.
"Although it can hardly bejbopeil.''
said the Daily Mail, "that [Canadian
claims will be conceded in their entirety, perhaps the wisest course
would be to resort to arbitration and
on the question of warships on the
great lakes, to permit thc understanding to continue undisturbed.
The Dally News expressed the sincere hope that the correspondent's
statement is a correct forecast of
Anglo-American negotiations but is
not sangnine of results from the commission. The Daily News characterizes as very significant the Canadian
claim to negotiate tbe reciprocity
question independently.
The island of Lewis, the northern
most and largest island of thc outer
Hebrides,has been the scene of serious
religious riots, raising from the union
of the Free and the United churches
of Scotland. The islanders retused to
countenance the alliance and when
the minister at NeBS joined the United
churoh they locked bim out of his
church. A strong force of police was
sent over from the mainland to open
thc doors, whereupon the islanders
congregated and throwing volleys of
stones at the constables, drove them
inside the building and bombarded
them with rocks until they capitulated and agreed to leave the Island.
Every member of tho police force was
more or less seriously wounded. It is
probable that a detachment of troops
will be sent to subdue the rioters.
The Evening News this afternoon
prints tbe following despatch from
Belfast: A well known Scottish
artist, John Dalryraple, died of starvation here on Christmas night. His
body was found in miserably squalid
surroundings. Dalrymple exhibited

Tramway oCpmany Wants its Guarantee and Lillie a Month's Salary.
At thc meeting of the city council
Inst evening very litlle business of
importance came up fur consideration.
The report of the finance committee
was read and adopted. On motion of
Aid. Selous, seconded by Aid. Irving,
bylaw 100 was reconsidered and
adopted.
A letter was read from the superiu-
tenent of tbe electric tramway company, asking for a refund of tbe check
placed by the company in the hands
of the city as a deposit at the timo of
applying for the charter and also as
guarantee 'for tne continuous operation
of the line, with interest on both to
date.
Of this request it was decided on
motion of Aid. Gillette seconded by
Aid. Irving tbut the sum of (375.04,
being the interest at 5 per cent, of the
amount deposited as guarantee, should
lie placed tj the credit of the company
on the tax account, but that the (2,000
iefund asked for, being the amount of
check given wilh application for submission of bylaw shonld not be refunded. The reason for this, it was
pionted out, was tbat the city had in-
Currei? a considerably larger bill of
expense in connection with the drawing up nf the tramway agreement, advertising and other things than the
amount paid in by the Tramway
company.

A TURN FOR THE BETTER.
The teduction in the freight and
treatment of silver-lead ores and the
announcement thai a lead renlicry is
to be erected nt Trail are important at
this time when the silver-lead mining
industry is languishing through low
prices and wheu it needs just this sort
of encouragement. The freight Hnd
treatment charges during the year have
beeu $10 per ton on ores containing
4n per cent, lead and 20 per cent, deduction for each unit of lead less than
this down to 10 per cent, tor which
S13 per ton was charged. A %i rcdtic-
iton on this rate, where the ore contains less than 8 per cent, zinc and of
S3, where it carries more than 8 per
cent., is fair and is about as cheap
us the smelters can afford to give. It
will be such a saving that many of
the mine uwners, who were contemplating shutting down on account of
the lew price of metals, will continue
operations as they will be able to do
so at a profit. As the announcement
marie by W. H. Aldridge, the manager
of the Canadian Smelting works, says.
the reductions will not compensate the
miners foi their losses in the decline
of metals from the first of the year to
the present time, but it is hoped the
mines will find it to their interest to
continue operations lit these figures.
The more important announcement
is that a refinery will b'i erected at
Trail, as it will iniiiU the commencement of the production of pig lead in
Canada. The refinery, on which construction is to ne begun at once, is to
be completed on May 1st. and then
the turning out of pig lead will be
commenced, Canada prcduced last
year, according to tbe latest revised
ligures, about 31,OUO tons of lead,
nearly all of which was refined in the
United States refineries and shipped
to other countries und sold there.
This was done because the duty on
lead ore going into lhe United States
is 2 1-8 cents per pound in the form
of pig lead und 1 1-2 cents whin in the
ore. Tbe censupmtion of lead and its
products in Canada is about 13,001)
tons per annum. When the pig lend
is turned out it will be necessary, in
order to supply the home demand,
that factories for the making of
white lead, lead pipe, shut, and other
products of lead be established. One
thing which has prevented the corroding of lead into white lead in Canada
so far is the tariff. Lead coming iuto
Canada is charged an import duty of
25 per cent, nil valorem, while corroded lead or white lead, which is used
in painting, is charged only 5 per
cent, ad valorem. This curious phase
of thu tariff must be remedied and the
duty ou white lead and the other
manufactured products must be raised
tu such figures that the Canadian
manufacturer of the products of lead
may have what amounts to a monopoly in the home market, The peo
pie who are behind the refinery'project have amide capital witli which to
cany on the business of turning out
pig lend und doubtless will eventually
embark iu manufacturing some of
the other products of lead.
When   the   home factories   begin to
turn out the manufactured products of
lead Ihere should be a cheapening of
these products, becHuso after the
industries get fairly stinted they
.'.hould be able lo make them just
us cheaply as they can be in the
United States. Tbe consumer should
get them foi the same price that he
pays at present less the import duty.
This should increase the quantities
used in Canada so that it should come
tip to the per capita amount used iu
the United States. The consumption
oi lead in Canada is a Utile over 2,000
tons per annum to the million inhabitants, while in the United States it
is 3,000 tons to thi million.      In   pro
portion to the population   Canada produces   more    lead   than    lhe     United j
States, and therefore   in proportion t& I
her population   she   will   have   more
lead for export after the home demand
is supplied than the United States.
What will he the ultimate effect O
the establishing of the lead reflnery
and its kindred industries in Canada'.'
The silver-lead mines here, when tbe
new plants are in full operation,
will be almost as valuable as the
same class of mines in the United
States. As we will have to depend
considerably on the outside markets
for the major portion of the lead
output we will realize a little less for
it than the Americans, its when we go
into tin.' markets of the world we will
have to compete with the cheaper
leads. Some say that the markets of
the Orient will afford an unlimited
market, for the lead which is exported
there from British Columbia. Chira
imports about 15.000 tons of lead and
Japan about 5,000 tons. There, however, we would have to compete with
the Australian and other leads and
would have to meet their price whatever it mny be On the whole the
condition of tile silver-lead miner will
be considerably improved, because he
will be free from the domination of the
American lead trust, and will not he
compelled to have his products subjected to the long hauls and vexations
exactions which out down his profits.
In the home market he will have a
monopoly, provided tho Dominion
government acts wisely and puts up
r.he import duties high enough, and on
the whole his condition will be considerably bettered because he should
In time get a much higner price for
his lead than he does at present.
Aside from this, the refining of lead
and the manufacturing of it varied
products will result advantageously
to the commonwealth. The wages for
transportation, treatment, refining
anrl manufacturing will be paid out at
home instead of going abroad to en
rich communities in the United
States. In .1 very short time after tbe
manufactories for the products of lead
are established they should be turning
out a surplus over the home demand.
This surplus ean be sent abroad and
sold in competitions with the other
Countries and if we ean manufacture
as cheaply as our rivals can, and we
believe we can do this, considerable
can be disposed of in this way.
Taking all of the foregoing into
consideration it is obvious tbat the
establishment of tbe reflnery is a
most important incident as it represents a turning point for the better in
the silver-lead mining industry of this
section.

The Fernie Free press has just
issned a Christmas number. It con
tains a histcry of the town aud
states among other things that "the
population of Pernio today is 3,000,
which entitles it to be regarded as tin
third largest town in the interior of
British Columbia, Rossland coming
first and Nelson next. Taking the
present output of the Fernie mines ns
2,0111) tons per day and the demand of
the Great Northern, as repeatedly
stated by its representatives, at 10.000
tons h day.and add to this the daily demand] of the province, which is 2,000
tons it will be seen how rapidly the
town is destined to grow If, however, the present requirements of trade
are 12,000 tons a day it is not likely
long to remain at that figure as the
natural development of the west, on
both sides of the line, will continue
to raise it higher and higher every
year, it looks therefore, as if the pos-
siiblitles for business in this valley
are practically unlimited, and that
for some yeais to come, however rapid
our Jevelopraent we shull overtake it.
und in saying this we have no desire
to create a boom or fo suggest a speculative in vestment. Fernieites claim
that tbey have a genuine foundation
for industrial prosperity and that
nothing short of chaos ean prevent ti.e
growth of this district. The growth
of Ferniu during the present year lias
been considerable although there has
been no undue rush. More than fifty
stores and dwellings have been erected
and every lot on the townsite has been
bought ana there is a clamor for
more, so that there is no doubt that in
the near future the authorities will be
forced to extend the towmite in order
to make mom for the large influx of
settlers which may reasonably be
expected. This being the present
stiite of affairs we cannot forbeat

**************************
O. O. Uuchanan, of Kaslo, was at
tbe Phair yesterday anil aa he has
made a close siody of the silver-lead
question he was askud his views as to
the reduction in the freight aud treatment charges and of tne establishment
of a refinery at Trail. lie replied thht
the immediate effect of the cut In the
freight and treatment rates would be
to encourage tlioso mine owners who
have hitherto been shipping to such
an extent that they would continue to
do so. Of Source mines, like the
Rambler-Cariboo, with largo deposits
of high grade ore could afford, he
raid, to ship, even If the price went
lower than at present. Tho refinery
project, ho thought, would result
advantageously to tho country, as its
tendency would be to raise the price
of lead. In order to secure the full
advantages of the tinning out of pig
lead in Cunada he thought the business of making white lead should be
encouraged us well as those manufacturing other products of lead, Tha
white lead making in Canada had
boon hampered by an idiosyncrasy of
lho tariff. Lead is charged 25 per
cont. ad valorem, while one of its
manulactiired products, white lead,
pays a duty of only five por cent, ad
valorem. This pesjuliarity of the
tariff had boen brought to the attention of lhe government and an amendment wae promised as soon as a Canadian refinery commenced to turnout
pig lend. Mr. Buchanan thought when
the manufactured products of lead
were made in Canada that thtro wouli
result an increase in their consumption, iieciiuse they should be somewhat
cheapei. For instance, he said, there
arc many houses and barns in this
country which need painting. If
white lead were cheaper, they would
be painted. The people of Canada, he
said, did not use as much lead per
capita as tho residents of the States,
but he thought after lead was manufactured into its various products at
home that instead of only 13,000 tone
being used tho quantity would be increased and with the steady augmentation of the population there would
he a steady enlargement in the consumption. Canada because it outputs
moro load than the United States in
proportion to the population would
have more of a proportion for export.
This would have to be marketed in
competition with the product ot other
countries and the Cfnadian producer
roust bo prepared to sell at the ruling
figures in the foreign markets. On
the whole, he thought the reflnery
marked the first step in a change for
the better and he believed it would
ultimately lead to an increase in the
price which the lead producers receive
for their product.

The much debated question ot the
apex of the Slocan Star ledge has not
yet cost tbe Byron N. Whiteoompany
anything, says the Paystreak, of Sandon. It has a very profitable sequel.
When action was commenced last
summer by the Rabbit Paw people,
claiming to havo the apex on the
Rabbit Paw aud Heber Fraction,
the White company set to work to
prove by exploration that they have
tbe apex on the Silversmith group. A
crosscut tunnel was run in 00 feel to
strike the ledge and a drift run to the
west. This drift is now in 200 feet
and shows one of the prettiest ore
chutes ever opened in the Slocan
country. It is 24 inches wide in the
face and gives average assays of 1,500
ounces of silver to the ton. The ore is
a steel galena and gray copper, carrying low percentages in lead. The
showing is at a depth of 150 feet.
Although a surface showing of clean
ore was long known to exist on the
Silversmith, this claim has not, until
recently, received much attention by
the While company. Added to the
enoimous oie reserves already blocked
out in tht Slocan Star and Slocan
Kiug ground, the opeuing up of this
strike on lho Silversmith will place
the Byron N. White properties away
ahead of any of the other mines of the
camp and give it rank among tho best
silver load mines of Iho world.
Thc ore shoot in the No. 2 winze,
which is boing such from No. 5 tunnel
at the Payne is still widening. The
winze is now down 75 feet and shows
four feet of clean high-grade galona,
carrying no zinc. This is tho lowest
level yet reached on the vein. At 1U0-
foot depth drifts will be run and a
new block of stoping ground opened
