Eleventh  Yeat
Ho Alone Can Bring About
Unity Among the Liberals.
Forecast of Chief Measures
to Come Before Parliament.
London. .ran. 4.���When King
Edward opens parliament on January
Kith, which will he an occasion of
even greater pomp and ceremony than
was his last appcaiance in thc House
of f.ords, one of the most Interesting
s-ssions of recent yenrs will be commenced. Before its conclusion the
whole status of thc Libcial party will
likely he altered, nnd Lord Hosebery's
(iiturii determined, Present Indications point to a split which no middle
road pronouncements ean heal, and iu
which Sir Edward fliey, II. II.
Asquith, Sir II. II. Fowler, R. W.
Perks, R. B, Oaldane and other
imperialists together with a few
niionistN, will Hock to Lord Rose-
beiy's standard and initiate an organisation with tho hope of securing eon-
trot of all thc Liberal elements prior
to the general election temporarily.
This division of the opposition will
greatly facilitate tne government's
programme, tho chief item of whinh
is a sweeping reform of parliamentary
procedure. The hopeless delay and
confusion which at present characterizes all executive labors at Westminster havo reached a point where parliament has become ridiculous in the
eyes of tne country. In the drastic
recasting of the procedure many
methods employed by the United
States congress will either he ndopted
or given a trial in modified form.
Among other* important features of
the session will he n thorough investigation of General Roller's dismissal
from tho army. This doubtless, will
once more involve the nation in a
vrhirlpool of hitter controversy.
Education nnd ilnance arc two
routine matters which will carry more
than usual interost.
The Chancellor of the Exchequer,
Sir Michael Hicks Beach, will doubtless get all thc additional war supplies ho requires, though special
measures will he necessary to raise
them, and thiB will give the Sir Henry
Campbell Banuerman section of the
opposition a full opportunity for
ciiticistng the government's policy iu
South Africa. Some sanguine prophets
also believe the war will be sufficiently near its end to enable the government to lay before the nation during
tho session, detailed plans for the settlements of South Africa. This belief,
however, does not appear to be shared
by the War office.
The steamship offices aud other
American rendezvous in Loudon are
already getting inundated with applications from tho United States to
secure seats from which to witness
the coronation procession. Nothing
definite can he arranged, as the route
of the procession is still unsettled. In
vioinities whera it is thought likely
that the great show will pass, speculation however, is beginning to get
brisk. Those who own town mansions on Park Lane and in thc ultra
fashionable squares which will be
available to visitors aie being quoted
at ��:s,0l)0 to ��4,000 for a bhort season
and smuller furnished houses usuallv
lctching ��000 arc on tho market, at
��1,000 for the season. Tho leading
hotels have already booked most of
their rooms at advanced Prices and
several of them havo s cured overflow
hotels in anticipation of a rush. The
London tradesmen openly avow that
they are looking forward to a great
American harvest, bnt that this will
not go entirely into British pockets is
evidenced by tho inquiries made by
ninny American firms regarding tbe
purchase of stores favorably situated
iu the west end.
Public feeling here has boon deeply
stirred by the alleged iihels on British
soldiers in South Africa, circulated en
the contincut. Lord Roberts' letter,
contraUioting the stories of tho violation of P.oer women and the employment of Itoer female refugees for immoral purposes, has intensified this
feeling especially ns regards the anti-
British tendencies of the German
press.   The Pal) Mall Gazette declares
that a positive duty is incuin'cnt on
the German government lo order its
military attaches ln South Africa to
announce what they know regarding
thc alleged atrocities, In all quarters
the keenest disposition is ovmced to
have authoritative denials issued and
have all accusations Investigated,
In the meanwhile thc inflation
against Germany is being vigorously
fanned by several of the London
dailies. Dr. Conan Doyle's pamphlet
on tho subjeot of the South African
charges will be shortly published.
It deals with every specific charge be
bus been able to investigate and it
will be sold without profit both here
and in the five European countircs for
which it has been translated. A New
York firm has boon given the American rights on condition that it sends
tree a copy to every United States
senator, congressman and government
In connection with the war it is Interesting to note that the War office
is considering the advisability of
supplying false teeth to ti.e forces.
Sixty per cent, of the applicants for
enlistment in General Baden Powell's
police have beeu rejected on the
ground of bad teeth, and hundreds ot
applicants for service witb the yen-
maniy were disqualified for the same
cause. The dental hospitals of London
have notified the War office lhat they
are prepared to make good the deficiency or entirely equip applicants who
are otherwise oligible at ��1 per head.
By fnr thc most important contributor to the exhibition of old masters, a
private view of which was held at
Burlington house, is J. Pierpont Morgan. He has sent a Colonna, a
Haphael, a Van Dyck, a portrait
group by Rubens, a portrait of the
Holy family by Titian, and a Rembrandt landscape. Other prominent
exhibitors are the Duke of Devonshire
and various Oxford oollcges.
About u week ago Mrs. A lee Twcedie
wrote an article for the Daily Mail on
the selfishness ef modern Englishmen,
quoting an American girl its saying
that English bachelors never returned
woman's hospitulity and were otherwise remiss. By endorsing and em-
phazing this view , Mrs. Twcedie
started a stream of correspondence and
elicited several amusing replies from
English young men. These retort
tliat'no Euglidi girl would ever expect
men to take her to tea, the theatre,
for a drive in the park or give her
landy or flowers, and that the American girl hy her willingness to aocopt
such attentions, comes in for considerable criticisms. Mrs. Tweedie also
represented the American girl as saying she would not waste hospitability
over those who would not return it.
This commercialism has been greeted
with jeers from varinuB clubmen who
have taken up the cidgels for their
sex. Mrs. Tweedie apparently only
drew a caricature of a well bred
American girl, but it served to bring
out curiously biting reflections from
men who have evidently accepted
American hospitality.
Tho action of Sir Ernest Cassol in
placing ��200,000 at the disposal ot
King Edward for charitable or utilitarian purposes which sura will be
devoted to the establishment of a sanitarium for consumptives, has brought
prominently before the public notice
one of the most interesting oharacter
in England. Comparisons are now
drnwn between Andrew Carnegie and
Cassol. In this connection the Spectator says: We hope the gilt will be
the precursor of many more. English
millionaires do not behave well In
this respect, far worse, for instance
than their American rivals who have
seut. this year ��25,000,000 in the endowment of universities, colleges,
libraries and art schools. It is
thoroughly discreditable to us that
Oxford and Cambridge lack a million
apiece required for their complete
Sir Ernest Cassol is an instance of
those wbo have worked from the bottom to the top rung of English life
He was born 50 years ago at Cologne.
His father was a German baker. Sir
Ernest entered the London financial
bouse of Bischoffshcim and Goldsmid,
as a clerk, finally attaining a partnership, lie had muoh to do with the
great English boom in Eries and was
ohiefly lesponsible in 1880 for the eon-
version of the Atlantic and Great
Western trust into thr Atlantic First
Leased Lines Rental trust. He was
made knight commander of Sl.
Michael and St George for important
financial services to the Egyptian government, and was also decorated by
Norway and Sweeden for assistance
rendered to railway enterprises in
these countries. Sir Ernest was.inter-
csted in thc issue of the  Mexican   five
Commission's  Valuation   of
Panama Canal Satisfactory. ,
Offer  Formally  Placed  Before the Secretary of
Paris, Jan. 4.���Tho dlreotors of the
Panama Canal company, with President Bo, in the chair, met at the company's office at 11 o'clock this morning and after a brief session, came to
a definite decision to offer to sell thc
canal property to the United States
for $40,000,000. This price includes
the excavations, canal, railway,
mnchlnery and all the other items
specified In the Isthmian commission's
report. The company's representative
at Washington, M. Boeufvc,   received
cable message today instructing
him to formally submit this offoi tu
the president.
Washington, Jan.4.���A formal proposition to sell the Panama canal properties to the United States government
for J40,000,000 today was submitted to
thc authorities here. It was made
by M. Bueufve representing tbe company, and Admiral Walker, as chairman of the Isthmian commission. M.
Boeufve anted under cable instructions
leceived today from tbe Panama canal
officials at Paris. Admiral Walker
brought the proposition to the
knowledge of the Secretary of State
and President, going directly to the
State department for that purpose.
The submission of this offer carries
out n plan which has been under
consideration for the last two weeks.
The first step was taken when M.
Puton retired from the presidency of
the Panama canal. In substance tbe
notification delivered to Admiral
Walker is as follows:
The Panama Canal compnny declares itself ready to transfer to tbe
government of the United States on
payment of $40,000,000 its properties
and concessions, estimated at that
amount by the Isthmian Ganal company, in conformity ^with the terms
and conditions of the estimates of the
said commission.
Except to submit the proposition in
the foregoing terms, there was no discussion with Admiral Walker as to
what further steps were likely to be
taken except to bring the proposition
to tho attention of the Secretary of
State, and the President.
It can be stated that the President
will oommunioate the proposition to
congress. The offer as made to
Admiral Walker and later communicated to the President and Secretary
of state refers to the estimates of tbe
Isthmian commission's report. This
feature of the commission's report appears under tbe caption "total value
of the Panama canal," and is as follows: Summing np the foregoing
sums the total value of tbe property is
found to be, excavation already done
827,474,033, Panama railway stock at
par $0,850,000, maps, drawings and
records $2,000,000, to which add 10
per cent, to cover commission,making
the total valuation of tho Panama
canal $40,000,000.
St. Louis, Jan. 4.���Henry C. Tatum,
aged 50 years, secretary of the Western Commercial Travellers association,
is found dead in bed at his residence here today. He had been ill for
some time. Mrs. Tatum said that
when her husband came home last
night at, if. o'clock ne said: "This is
a eold world" A physician, wbo was
called today when Tatum's dead body
waB found, discovered an empty bottlo
beside the bed, which, ho said, had
contained some kind of poison. Mrs.
Tatum told tbe dootor that her husband had swallowed tbo contents of
thc bottle before he retired.

Many Conflicts With Poliuo and
Cavalry Called Out.
Madrid, Jan. 4.���Martial law will
he proclaimed tonight in Barcelona
and its violnlty. Already there have

Bodies of strikers are constantly

of peoplo into Barcelona from the surrounding villages and tbe socialists
and anaronists are active in orgrniz-
ing attacks on the lactones which

known woman anarohist Therese
Clareraont is among the persons arrested. A feature of tbe situation Is
the militant nction of the women.
Meetings of work women during the

work per day and support tbe men
strikers. Women aro now prominent
in all tbe street demonstrations.

The United States Last Year
Surpassscd Previous
Growing Home Demand Ab
sorbs tbe Increased
New York, Jan. 4.���The production
and progress of the mining and metallurgical industries of the United
States for the year just closed were
reviewed in the current number of
Engineering and Mining .lutirnal.
Coal, upon which all the ctber mining
industries depend for fuel, waB treated
first and the total production was estimated at 300,000,000, short tons, an
amount considerably in excess of that
brought to the Biirfaoe in Great
Britain and far beyond the quantity
mined in any other country. Nearly
the entire amount was consumed at
home despite a material growth in
exports. The anthracite coal fields of
Pennsylvania contributed one-fifth of
the total.
Thc iron trade showed a production
that a few years ago wonld have been
regarded impossible and the quantity
ot pig iron exceeded the output of
Great Britain and Germany combined.
Raw iron, steel and finished products
showed nn aggregate parallel with
that of pig iron. Tbe enormous output was not in excess of the demand
nnd at the end of the year the great
mills and furnaces were almost all
behind with orders.
Ore shipments from Lako Superior
regions exceedetd 2,000,000 tons.
Tho export trade in iron and steel
showed a material falling off in comparison with 1900, but the home market made up the deficiency.
Gold production Bhowed an increase
and amounted to between $82,000,000
and $83,000,000. Sumimng up the
history of the year we may briefly say
that the total production of the mining and metallurgical industries of
the United States considerably exceeded tbe enormous total recorded in
1900, while there is every prospect that
a still further advance will bo made
in 1902.
German   Press   Dislikes   Recognising
Monroe Doctrine.
Berlin,   Jan. I.���llerr Von Pilgrim*
Halta/zi, the German charge d'ntlairs
nt Caracas handed President Castro a
fresh note on Thursday reciting io
Simple plaDC language what Germany
desires Venezuela to do respecting all
her claims nnd the question in dis*
pute. An official of the foreign ofliee
has informed thc correspondent of the
Associated Press that the new note, is
so phrased that no possible offense
can he taken.
It contains no suggestion of a ulti-
mntim ami no time limit for compliance with its terms is made, though
in presenting it to the charge
d'affaires asked foi an early reply.
The object of the note is to nflord
President Castro an opportunity of
yielding gracefully and it conveys no
intimation of what Germany will do
if Venezuela refuses to pay the tier-
man claims.
Diplomatic opinions here consider
that Germany's representation to the
United States regarding Venezuela
indicates that the German government
entirely accepts the Monroe doctrine.
The papers have partly taken the
same view. The Tngcblatt says: The
phrase America for Americans is an
Irreversible act. Some newspapers
like the Cologne Volks Zeitung (a
leading Centrist organ) sees in Germany's consultation with the United
States a necessary recognition of the
letter's pretenses in Central American
and that panel avers that the presentations of the German ambassador at
Washington were followed by a fresh
outbreak of insolence upon the part of
the American press.
A General Scuffle FoIIowb the 0-Day
Bicycle Race.
Boston, Jan.4.���In a fist tight whicb

garden ended tonight with McFarland
and Maya the winners, Leaodei
seoond, Freeman third, King fourth,
Gongolitz fifth, and McLean sixth.
The distance covered by the leaders
was 1,193 miles 5 laps. Trouble began
almost an instant after the men were
over the tape. McFarland who had
only won first place by a few inches,
jumped off his wheel and dashed at
Leandor. Other riders and trainers
made a grab for the men and got
Leander ont of the way. Freeman
next went for Leandcr and struck bim
full in thc face. Thereupon riders,
trainers and spectators took a hand
and for a few minutes the affair looked like an incipient riot. Police
officers jumped into the mass of men
and straightened out matters.

to limit the output  of   copper   to   the1
capacity of the maruels of   the   world
to   consume   it so Hint prices may   be
kept up.     As tbe parties   chiefly concerned   aro   all   anxious fur profits on

to be obvious that   an   understanding
would soon   be   reached.    Tbosu   who
are in control of the interests involved
are among the  shrewdest of linanciers

Thc    latest   copper   circular of   the
Messrs.   .lames   Lewis   and   Sons,   of
Liverpool,   Baya:     "The reduction In
the price of Standard   Copper   to  ��61
per ton appears to he part of a   policy
adopted by the   Amalgamated   Copper
Co. (or their agent, the United Metals
Helling Co.) to force the Calumet  and
1110 Tinto Cos, to agree to a reduction
of-their production so  as   to  equalize
supply ai.d demand.     We   understand
this policy to be that   of   having  fold
Home 25,000 tons of their own stock to
tbe regular customers of the   Calumet
Co. at about If) 5-8 cents per lb., with
a guarantee to the buyers   that an   allowance would be  made   to   them   of
any lower price at which the   Calumet
Co. might subsquenlly   offer   to  sell
thus  supplying   the   requirements  ol
tlieir   important   consumers for  Boino
three or four months to come, in order
to   prevent   sulcs by   the Calumet  Co.
for  still   more  forward delivery, at a
very low price, the value of   Standard
in the Loudon market was depreciated
��10 per ton���or more than 2   cenls per
lb.    By these menus the Amalgamated
Co. are relieved from carrying a stock
of seme 25,000 tons, the onus of which
falls upon   the  Calumet   Co.     It   remains   to   be seen whether this   very
determined   action  ou the pait of  the
Amalgamated   Co.   will   have the de
aired effect of inducing the other large
producers   to   join   with tbem in   the
necessary reduction of production.
"That it would be to thc advantage
of the shareholders of the lt io Tinto
Co. to reduce production���say 10 per
cent., rather than that copper be reduced ��15 per tun is evident. A fall of
��15 per ton in the value of their total
production of 36,000 tons represents
��525,000 whereas the loss ol prollt of
��25 per tun��� between '.ho cost of pro

"The depreciation iu the market
value of the Ainalgnamtcd Company's
shares durirg the past six month 1
from 81110 to |05, represents nearly
(100,000 000, and in those of the Kiu
Tinto compauy, from ��M 1-2 tu ��41
"it is incomprehensible that the
Amalgamated company with sume
180,000 tons ol copper to sell annually
should gratuitously depreciate this,
and the stock they hold, to the extent
they have done during the last three
weeks, unless they have some ulterior
objoct in view. Part of this object
may be to acquire suflicient Kio Tinto
shares at a low price to enable them
to obtain control uf the company's
affairs and so regulate its production.
"From our statistics it will be
seen the apparent consumption of
England this year has decreased 3,015
tonB, but the exports from England
bave increased 10,487 tons. French
consumption is H3.1 tons less. German
consumption shows the large decrease
of 20,800 tons���due ti) the great trade
depression developed in that CO (IE try.
Tnere are, however, now signs of an
improvement, especially in the electrical industries, and we may therefore look for an increased consumption of copner iu Germany, as well ns
in England, during 11)02. The increase in American consumption and
stocks is 00,305 tons. Of Ibis 20,000

The Lardeau Eagle takes a roseate
view uf the prospects of that district
for iWt'l. It believes that the price of
silver and lead will have risen by the
time lhe mines are ready to ship next
year as all the ure in the meantime is
being saved. The establishment of
the Canadian mint will increase to
some extent the demand for silver and
when Canadians have their own icfin-
ing works they will bo to a large
extent independent of the American
Lead Trust. Tbe MoCrossan smelter
is being built and rail transportation
is likely to materialise before the end
uf the year. All that Lardeau needs,
in its opinion,is a continuation of the
enterprising spirit that has prevailed
there in lhe past.
The value of the grain, potatoes,
poultry and dairy products raised by
the farmers of Manitoba laat year was
$4(1,(100,000. Ill this estimate is not
[poinded the horses, cattle, sheep,
hogs, hay and roots raised in the
province, which would probably swell
the total about 85,000,000. This is
wonderful but in only a measure
shows the capabiltes oi Manito a and
the Northwest territories. The section
is certain to become the granary of
the world and the home lor many
millions of prosperous and contented
people. In the Northwest Territories
alone, consisting of Alberta,
Assiniboinand Saskatchewan,there sre
:i0ll,000 square miles or 1112,000,000
acres. The stockraiser can find land
suitable to his cailing in the foothills
of the Rocky Mountains in Alberta.
On the other hand, if one desirea
dairying, mixed farming, or wheat
growing, then Eastern Assiniboia,
Northern Alberta and parts of Manitoba are open to bim. There are said
to be 100,000 square miles open to
settlement in tbe Saskatchewan
valley. This section is now being
opened by the Canadian Northern
railway and will soon be settled and
iu a short time it will be sending into

An interesting question will come
before the American congress after
the holiday recess when the isthmian
canal is up for discuision. The
Nicaragua route has heretofore been
the only ono seriously considered
owing to the prohibitive price of
tlilil.OOii.diiO placed upon thc unfinished
1'anainn canal hy the French company
owning it. The French stookholders
nre now anxious to sell for 840,000,000
and it is possible that they would
take less. While the American commission recommended the Nicaragua
route with but one dissenting voice
this was done principally on account
of the high price asked for the French
company's rights to its partially
finished waterway. lt has all along
been palpable that it would be
cheaper to purchase the Panama canal
mil (inisli itthnii it would be te construct a new waterway by way of the
Nicaragua route, provided tho Panama
rights could be procured for a reasonable figure,and considering that much
more has been expended upon it
$40,000,000 is nut an unreusouable
price.   Then, too, a canal at sea level
obviously superior to one with
numerous locks. It is possible that
the Americans may purchase the
French rights and construct the oanal
by the Panama instead of tbe Nicaragua route. The canal will be 0/

in no into tion on the part of his company to shut down operations in its

one-third of the possible production it
having been doinonstratcd in actual
practice that thu mine and concentrating mill could turn ont 3,000 tons
of concentrates per month. It is said
to be very probable that on or about
June 1st the St. Eugene will resume

William Davis, managing director
of the Transvaal-Zambesi company,
operating valuable mining pioperty
in the Krio camp, has received returns
from the shipment of ore marie from
Erie re.ently. The smelter returns
netted the company $12 per ton after
deducting all charges. The ore sent
out was intended to represent the
average values obtainable over the
property, and thc outcome is decidly
satisfactory. The development work
done on the property during the past
fall and summer has shown up a considerable body of ore, much of whieh
carries considerably higher values
than thc average of thc last shipment.
Arrangements are now being made
to get out sevrral cars of ore during
the present month.
