Wholesale and  Retail  Grocers Discuss Their
Prospects of Amicable Agreement Are Far Away
as Ever,
Al tin' meeting of the retail and
wholesale grocers which was held last
evening those present of tho two associations were, C. Morrison, J. Irving,
J 1;. MuEwen, T. H. Wilson, G.
iicll, 1'. ���'��� Soanlan, .1. (lallagher of

II. (Ireen, Kaslo, nnd S. DesBrisay,
Ymir. The whoesaleis were represented by Messrs. P. Chapman, man-
agor for A. Mllcdonald and Co., and
R. Itnbeilson, of J. Y. Griflln, and
The meeting lasted several hours
anil a good ileal of disenssion was indulged in hut praoticall/ no progress
wns made, neither sido manifesting a
pive ami take .spiiit. The retailers
were evidently annoyed at the small
representation of the wholesalers, and
the fact that tho latter had not come
prepared to deline any settled platform.
In opening the meeting President
MePliorson, of the retailers, spoke of
'lie last meeting and how the position
ol the retailers had been defined and
siiil ho hoped that the wholesalers
were piepared to state th ir position
in tho matter.
1'. rii.-ipiiiiiii said he had given the
platform as laid down by the retailers
every consideration. lt was not a
matter, he thought that the wholesalers as nn association could deal
with, lint individually, speaking for
A. Macdonald and Co., he could not
accept the pliitform laid down by thc
Q, Hell stilted that the matter oould
never he settled individually. It was
11 matter entirely between the retail
anil the wholesale grocery trade, and
the agreeing of any individual firms
would not alfect the question as a
Mr. Champan���I am not here to
speak for any one but our own firm
lint I would ask, can any of the gentlemen present show where A.. Mac-
ilonald and Co., arc not treating tho
retailors fairly? Thc whole question
should he looked at and judged by the
spiiit in which business is conduoted.
A long discussion followed as to
how much a wholesaler might sell to a
mine or mill without infringing on
tlie rights of thc retailer.
Mr, Robertson rose to make exception to the stntement of one of the retailers thnt the wholesalers were seeking retail trade, "We have never encroached on it, and we absolutely refuse to sell to boarding houses or
hotels. 1 do not believe in a whole-
Nder selling to n mine or mill where
less than from do to 75 mon are em-
Ployed, When over thnt number is
employed I think they are entitled to
ileal with wholesalers direct.

Secretary Wilson Objects to Canada
Appointing a Ilritisher.
Washington, Nov. 'Hi.���At a cabi
net mooting todny Secretary Wilson
talked to the cabinet for a short time
about what ho regards as the failure
of the Canadians to keep an agreement with the United States as to
the bringing of cattle to Canada and
this oountry from Great llrltnin, Scotland and Ireland. This agreement
mnde a number of years ago provided
that an American and a Canadian m-
pector of cattle should be kept in
Ureal Britain to inspeot cattle coming
to Canada destined for Canada or the
United States. This was to guard
ngniust getting disease into this
country. The information Secretary
Wilson has Is thnt the Canadians
have withdrawn their inspector nnd
permits the Inspection to be made by
a citizen of Great liritain who may bo
competent but who does not have the
same interests that a Canadian would
have in the examination of cattle.

Union Miners Protest Against Attempt
to Out Wages.
Nanaimo, Nov. 20.-A strlko, the
ultimate cause of whieh is the refusal
of Manager Faulds to recognize thc
union's protest against an attempt to
cut rates, has been dcolarcd at thc
Alexandra mines, worked by tho
Wellington Coal Co. Three hundred
men are affected. Premier Dunsmuir
at present Is on his way from California and therefore, nothing will bo
dono till he gets back. Faulds says
they can do without coal for two
months. A year ngo a strike started
at the same mines which lasted six
her of dealers who were not in accord
with the views of those   present.     He
was not prepared to accept   the   plat- \
iform nf the retailers, although   ready I
to   protect   their interests to the   best
of his ability.
Mr. Morrison asked if tho wholesalers oould not select a committee
of their members to meet a ooinmittec
of the retailers and try to arrange
matters. If two or three met together
they would probably be able to arrange the questions entirely.
Mr.Green of Knslo thought that the
wholesalers were not meeting the
issue fail ly. It was not individual
oases were wanted but a settled arrangement.
Mr. Scan Ian would like to see the
wholesalers bring something forward
for themselves. Mr. Chapman seemed
lo be acting on the defensive cntiroly.
Mr. Chapman answered that this
hnd been forced' on him. lie was
acting on the defensive and would as
long as he considered that his compnny was attacked.
Mr Irving rose to say tbat as he did
not see that they were making the
slightest progress towards a settlement
of the questions that they had met to
discuss that in his opinion the best
thing to do was to acjourn. He therefore moved that the meeting adjourn.
An informal disoussion followed
after this iu which another meeting
to take place today was suggested, to
this however, Mr. Chapman objected.
Uo had given a good deal of bis time
to the matter, and did not see any use
in drawing it ont. Maodonald and
Co., were treating their customers
fairly and purposed to continue doing
so. He did not see how they could
make any chungo in their business to
suit the retailers.
Mr. (heen then arose and sal.', that
under those circumstances he had
great pleasure in seconding Mr.
Irving's inction. The meeting then

Boiler Explosion Spreads Terrible Death and Destruction.
Colon, Nov. 20.���The
gunboat General Pinzon
in Colon harbor this morning. Her
commander said there were only 100
men out of the original 000 troops
carried by the vessel now on board
the gunboat. The balance had been
landed at Porto Hello, about 10 miles
distant from Colon. The presumption
is that the 500 men are marching overland to join tho government forces
under Ooneral Alban. The ground
they have to cover is difficult and the
troops will doubtless occupy a few
days in reaching their destination.
The Liberal forces control San
Pablos station and llainacoa where
there is a large bridge over the
Chagrcs river. This is a critical point
offering the Liberals a splendid means
of attack when the government forces
attempt to cross it. It is generally
admitted that if (lencral Alban succeeds in crossing thc river at Baruaooa
his inarch towards Colon will afterwards be an easy task. General
Lngo, thc Liberal commander, is at
Ilarbacoa. Thc Liberals retreated
from Emperador owing to lack of ammunition. They admit having lost CO
men in killed nnd wounded nt Einper-
ador.and that among the number was
Colonel Qyas, but they claim that the
government's loss was over 150 mon

Passengers, however, will still carry

An over due passenger train with a

the effect that General Alban with
about 300 government troops has
crossed Ilarbacoa bridge, and he discontinuing his march to Colon. He in
now at ravernilla where ho is resting. The Liberal forces continuo to
retreat before him. They explain their
retreat saying they hnve no ammunition. All the fighting todny occurred at Barbaesa bridge. Passengers by the delayed trains assert that
fully 100 Conservatives were killed
and wounded during the fighting
there, and that the Liberal losses
were insignifloant, the Liberals are
now approaching datum station,
about five miles from Colon, and it is
believed a decisive engagement will

Detroit, Mich.,Nov. 26.- -Twenty-five
men are dead, 5 of them unidentified,
and so terribly burned and blackened
that identification is impossible, and
24 other men are lying in the various
hospitals of the city Suffering from
tcrriblo cuts and burns and other
injuries, all results of thc explosion of
one of the boilers in the Penbcrthy
Injector company's large plant at the
comer of Abbott street and Brooklyn
Ave., at 0.30 o'clock today. In addition to those more seriously injured
a dozen or more of the employees
suffered comparatively slight injuries
and were taken directly to their
homes. Twenty-five men and boys
have not yet been located, either at
their homes or at 'he hospitals. Tonight a great force of men is searching the ruins by electric light and
this work will not bo stopped until
every foot of the debris has been removed. The Penborthy Injector company's plant occupied half a squnre
at thc corner of Abbot street and
Brooklyn avenue. It was composed of
two briok buildings separated by a
sixteen foot alley. The rear building
in which the boiler was looated, was
completely destroyed,was threo stories
high. Tho boiler room wns located
at the northwest corner of the lmitiling on tho first floor. It was in this
building that most of tbe manufacturing was dono.
It is Impossible to tell exactly how
many men were at work in the various departments of the rear building
whon the explosion occurred but the
officers insist tbat the number was no
over 85. The awful crash came without warning. The floors and roof of
the rear buildinsg bulged upward and
then crashed down a mass of debris.
Windows in houses for a block around
were broken by the concussion.
Flames broke out from the ruius
almost immediately and the horror of
fire was added to the sufforing ones
imprisoned. Calls were sent out for
all thu ambulances in the city. Pending their arrival neighboring houses
were turned into temporary hospitals.
Iho first ambulances on the scene
were inadequate to carry those who
had already been extricated and express wagons and all classes of
vehicles were pressed into service.
All the laborers who could work to
advnntnge were clearing away the
The lloors and roofs had fallen at
nn angle and formed a sort of hugh
covering under which the fire burned
fiercely. Not until the firemen had
chopped through this did their streams
begin to have an appreciable effect
on the flames.
Gradually the rescuers worked their
way downward through tbe pile. By
HiIb time there were no cries or groans
to aid them for the flames had tics-
tioyod those unfortunates who were
not killed by the explosion or the fall,
but the work of rescue continued with
unabated haste. stretcher bearers
stood beside tne delvers and bore
away the burned and blackened
bodies. A vacant house adjoining thc
factory was converted Into a temporary morgue. In several cases the
charred corpses were so hot when
recovered that they could scarcely
be handled.
The front building of thc plant
sustained comparatively little damage
ennui Jering the tremendous explosion
within 1(1 feet of it. There were a
dozen girls among thc employees on
the fourth floor of this building but
nobody was Injured.
The property loss aooording to Secretary Chi Ids Is about T1BO,000. The
firm carried 870,000 fjro and some
boiler insurance, but how muoh of
the latter Chi Ids oould not state.
Subscriptions for thc relief of the
sufferers have been started.
Nothing is known as yet about thc
cause of the explosion. The boilers
hnd been recently Inspected and thc
engineer   was   known   as one of   the
most careful and oapable   men  in the
Man and Woman Shot in a Crowded
Paris, Nov. 20.���A tragedy characteristically Parisian, was committed
in the heart of Paris today at the corner of thc Boulevarde dee Capucincs
and the place de L'Opera. A husband
shot hi6 faithless wife and her lover
in full view of hundreds of people.
Opera square was filled wilh promen-
aders at lunch timo when a cab drove
across thc square followed by a man
running. A policeman who was regulating traftlo stopped the cab in front
of the Cafe de. la Paix, enabling the
pursuer to overtake it when the man
drew a revolver, thrust it through a
window of the vehicle, and fired
twice killing the woman who was
inside. Her lover opened the other
door and tried to flee, bnt the husband
sprang after him aud blew out his
brains before the spectators conld
interfere. Then the husband approached the policeman, handed liiin
the weapon and surrendered.

negotiations for thc lelesse of Miss
Ellen M.Stone, the American missionary and Mme. Tsilka, her companion.
The impression which prevails among
the best informed people here is that
Mr. Dickenson's departure for Constantinople will increase the dillloulty
of gaining thc confidence of tbe
brigands and expediting a settlement
of the ransom question.

Hatzfeldt was borne to Victoria station on a gun carriage and escorted by
tbe life guards.
Philadelphia, Nov. 20.���Capt. Hill

II. MucNlel, wife of Dr. MacNcil, of
Ann Arbor, was washed overboard and
drowned. There was a heavy sea
running and Dr, MaoNeil who was on
deck watching the storm went to his

steamship. The couple had been
standing together for only a few
minutes when an immense wave swept
over thc Belgenland carrying the unfortunate woman overboard. Her
body was not seen afterwards.

Favors a SyBtem of Thorough Improvement of Waterways.
Toronto, Nov. 20.���Mr. Tarte speaking here this afternoon referred to
improvement in Cunada's deep waterways and said he wished he were, as
had been claimed, master of administration,as then he would spend money
on improvements ot water��-nys not in
bits but in lnmps. Referring to
derision of the government not to
allow American vessels to engage in
Canadian trade, the minister said if
Canada had not enough vessels to
carry gruin between its own ports
vessels must be built.
Toronto, Nov. 20.���Hon. ,1.1. Tarte,

Osborne Howes, chairman of the
committee of reciprocity of the Roston
Chamber of Cominrcee, delivered an
address on reciprocity with Canada a
few days since, before the Commenca!
olub of St. Paul: In beginning he
stated that the development of U. S.
trade with foreign countries the past
25 years his been something marvelous. It has nover been equalled be
fore in the world's history. Previous
to that time his country merely sent
out these goods that It did not need
here. Now the states were exporting
goods that the foreign countries manufactured themselves, and, for this
reason it was necessary to obBerve the
greatest caution in the development
of national interests. The Ameri
can people at the present time can
produce all they need in about 42
weeks. The goods and merchandise
produced during the remaining nura
ber Of weeks ean be sent t > the foreign
countries. The commercial relations
between Canada and America are of
more importance to the States than
the business done with any other
foreign country. Canada has 5,800,000
peoplo. Last year thc country biuglit
$110,000,000 worth of goods and it
was from all clashes of II, S.trade. Of
the above amount $112,500,000 was for
manufactured goods. The country
sent out manufactured goods to the
extent ot 8400,0000,000 and Canada took
more than any other country.
Referring to trade with Canada
Mr. Howes said that only two foreign
nations, Englsnd and Germany,
bought of II. S, last year as freely as
CaiindiiuiH, while U. S. sales to them
were greater than its sales to Mexico
and all the countries of Central and
South America combined.
At thc present tune the Canadians
were justly dissatisfied with onr man
ner of treating them. They havo ln
creased their purchases from us four
fold during the past 20 years, while
we bought from them little more than
we did in 1HH0. They have pnt npon
their free list about half what they
imported from thc United States and
taxed thc remainder ?5 per cent.
Wc taxed nearly all Canadian products, our average tax rate being
about Mi per cent. Unless we can in
a reasonable timo come to some trade
understanding with her, either thc
Canadian tariff would he made, in
which event out annual sales of $110,-
000,003 would drop to half that
amount, or, through a customs federation with England, English goods
would be ndniittoit in Canada tree of
duty, while England would impose a
duty on foreign products.
Mr. Howes then spoke of Sir Wilfrid Laurier's polloy with this
country after coming into power, both
In President Cleveland's administration and in President MoKinley's. lie
said that now it was up to the
It. S. to make advancements in the
establishment of heller commercial
relations. Englnnd had it in mind,
he said, to establish, in the eoursu of
time, an Imperial federation with its
colonies, by a different system, and
Canada was looking upon thin idea
with favor. America ought to honor
Canada instead of trying to kill trade
with tariff walls. He said that at
the meeting of Ciinadinn maim factor -
ers In Montreal reoent.lv, it was the
consensus of opinion that a tariff
barrier ought to be put up and a differential one with England established.
Mr. Howes quoted from President.
MoK'Inloy's last addieHs, the hitter's
views favoring a change of trade
policy. Mr. Howes closed his address
with an eloquent flea for   the   estsb
lisliiii.-nt of reciprocal   trade relations
with Canada.
The above address will direct attention to one of the most important
questions which Canada has before
her There is no doubt that the present Chinese walls of tariff which both
peoples have reared'against the other
oould bo thrown down with advantage
to each. The question which confronts
Canada, however, is to ascertain what
advantages she would gain under
reciprocity. It is obvious that certain
of her industries are thriving under
the protection system which lias been
put into effect for their benefit, and
lhat they will grow in importance if
present conditions are continued is as
plain an a pike-staff. Whatever reciprocal arrangement is entered into
would have to be so arranged that
those infant industries should be
allowed to continue tu be protected so
that they may not be dwarfed by the
competition of the same industries in
the United States which have long
been established on a sound and enduring basis. It might be a good
arrangement to have reciprocity in
raw products and in certain manufactured articles which are not at present
made in Canada. The question Is one
of many sides, numerous interests
will have to be conserved and is one
which will require tho best thought
and consideration of our wisest statesmen before a reciprocity treaty which
will be as beuecfiial to Canada as it
is to the United States can be evolved.
It is plain that the overtures for the
proposed treaty are now coming from
Ihe United States and Canada can
take advantage of the situation and
make a bettsr bargain than if she
were still sending reciprocity commissioners lo Washington.
It was announced In the press dispatches recently that the llritish government had decided to send the Australian mails to and from Australia
by way of the American continent
rather than as heretofore by the way
uf the Suez canal. It is also announced that the French and Herman
governments intend to use the same
route in the transportation of their
mails to and from then possessions In
the South Paeiflo ocean. This means
tbat the greater portion of thc mail
sent from these three countries will
be received in New York and sent by
rail to San Francico and from thence
delivered by steamships to Australia
and other points in the Pacific ocean
controlled by the British, the French
and thc Germans, It Canada could
only establish that fast steamship
service which she bas been so long
talking about all of this mail would
be taken across tbe continent by the
Canadian 1'acitio railway and transferred at Vancouver to thc steamships
running to Australia and other points
on the I'nciiic ocean controlled by the
three nations mentioned. The Importance of this incident can hardly be
estimated. It will ail in improving
the transcontinental service between
Mow York and San Francisco and
assist materially in building up the
principal American port on thc Pacifi"
coast. It Is true that trade follows
the ling, but it is equally true that
trade follows tbe mail, and hence thc
determination of the three big nations
of Europe to send most of their mail
by the United States is an incident
whlob is pregnant with meaning
With little effort we believe that it
oould have been so arranged that it
would all come by way of Canada. A
portion of thc llritish mail now goes
by way of Vancouver to Australia und
other countries in the Pacific ooean
It is curried by the steamships Bailing
monthly from Vancouvoi'. The steamers from Vancouver take four days
longer to make the trip from Vancouver to Australia than do tho steamers from Snn Francisco, because the
later have the speedier vessels. The
service from Vancouver is not so frequent as it is from Snn Francsco and
nco the latter city will get most of
the mails to transport. With a faster
steamship service Canada should be
able to get the carriage of all the
malls from the threo most Important
countries in Europe and therefore an
effort should lie made to secure such
nu Improvement on the Atlantic and
Pacific lines as would bring about
such a result. It would result in
milking Ihu Dominion ouu of the
world's greatest highways.

Asthmalene Brings Instant Relief and Permanent Cnre in all Cases.

There is nothing like Asthmalene. It
brings instant relief, even in the worst
cases.   It cures when nil else fails.
The Rev. O. F. WELLS, of Villa Ridge,
111., says: "Your trial bottle of Asthmalene received in good condition. I cannot
tell yon hoy? thankful I fepl for the good
derived from it. I was a slave, chained
with putrid sore thront nnd asthma for ten
years. I despaired of ever being cured. 1
saw your advertisement for the cure of
this dreadful and tormenting disease, As
thma, nnd thought you had overspoken
yourselves, but resolved to give it a trial
To my astonishment the trial acted like a
charm.   Send me a full size bottle.

"The Right of Way," iB the name
of tlio latest novel, written by Gilbert
l'arle.'t. and publishod by thc Oopo.
Clark Company, limited, of Toronto,
nnil now on sale by the Canada Drug
ami Hook company of this city. In
this story tbe author tells of life of
Reality Steele, a brilliant Criminal
lawyer, an agnostic, intemperate,
foppish ami a riddle to his friends.
He is admired for his success and his
talents, but is a veritable Sphynz to
tiiopc who try to gain his friendship.
He attracts by his talents and manner a beautiful but wordly woman
Kathleen, but lie loves wine and other
women and in a Drawl in an inn
reborn he goes to see a woman whom
lie is fonder of than he should be he
is wounded on the head and thrown
inlo a river. He is rescued and
cari'icil to n distant place by the man
nlnmi ho had defended and acquitted
of tho charge of murder and after
several months is restored to reason
by an operation. On hifl return to
reason he realizes that he cannot go
baok to his wife as she has remarried
because she believed him dead. He
denounces his former life, adopts
another name and resolves to spend
the remainder of his life in the
village of Chaudeier. There he
meets Rosalie Evnntuecl, the postmaster's daughter, a deeply religious and
beautiful girl who materially Influences his destiny, makes him a bettei
man and whom he would like to
marry. Which however has the right
of way?
The spiritual struggle wliioh he has
with himself is splendidly depicted
and the pure love exquisitely wrought.
Thc struggle is ended by bis death
while defending money intrusted to
bis eate tor the bui'ding of a church.
Il is one of the strongest and most
fascinating stories that Gilbeit Parker
lias yet written. It is mucn in the
same vein as Hall Oaine's Christian,
and in some respects is superior, as
there is not a dull page in the book
from the first to the last, "The Right
of Way," occupies a high literary
plane and is well worthy of perusa-1
hy lovers of interesting fiction.
"Why Not Sweetbheart?" by Julia
W. lienshaw, who has written considerable for the coast papers under the
uom de plume of Julia Durham and
who is the author of "Hypnotized,"
"llritish Columbia Up-to-Date," and
other publieaions, :s the title of an
interesting novel pilntcd by Georgo
Morang and Co., limited, of Toronto.
The scenes of the book are laid in
llritish Columbia and it is thrillingly
Interesting. The attempted murder
in the Rossland camp is full of deep
interest, and the description of scenery sho* that the author bas rare
descriptive powers. In thc conversa
tions there are many witty and point
id epigrams. Once In a while a false
noto is struck like mistakes made by
a now nut very promising player on a
musical -instrument, but these are
napptly infrequent, and on the whole
the "Why Not Sweetheart?" should
win now laurels for its gifted author,

Hugh Freleigh was examined for
discovery before Registrar Simpkins
yesterday in the case of Frelcigh vs.
Hall Mines smelter. This action is
respecting injuries received by the
plaintiff in the crushing of his arm
in the ln-iquetting machine in Apiil
Constable Forester of Robson, was
in the city yesterday. He reports that
the Canadian Paeilic bridge across the
Columbia below Robson is about coin*
peted. About 10,000 rivets remain to
be put in to bind certain portions oi
the bridge together, and when these
are in place the bridge will be finished. The livets are being put In at the
rate of 900 a day and in about 11 days
the work should be finished. After
this is done there will be some necessary wcrk done on the approaches and
at the farthest the first train should
be able to oross the Columbia on thc
bridge early in the New Year.
In a number of eastern publications
are advertisements calling for boys
and girls to collect snbscrptions for
vnrious unknown magazines which are
generally offered for six months at
ten cents, to introduce them. To the
agent who seoures a oertain number
of subscriptions,amounting to a dollar
and upwards, prizes of different
descriptions are offeied. Several boys
in the city who took the agency for
one of these publications in Chicago
and sent in sums ranging from one to
three dollars arc still waiting to receive answers or the prizes, and the
subscribers tn receive their magazines.
The swindle is a common one and
seems at present time to be a very
successful one.

was not due and he was, therefore,
not liable to West,who had an assign
ment of thc olaim. The action wns
tried before Mr. Justice Irving at
Nelson, who gave judgment for the
plaintiff West. The defendant ap
pealed to the full court nt Vancouver
who reversed Mr. Justice Irving's
judgment. The plaintiff West then
gave notice of appeal to the Supreme
court of Canada, whereupon the defen
dant Buchanan offered settlement by
paying all his own costs and giving
West $500. This settlement was accepted and closed yesterday,the appeal
to the Supreme court being withdrawn.
