Cruelties of Russia and Austria No Standard to
Follow.
London, Oot. 31.���John Morloy, M,
P., addressing his constitutnts today
at Arhri-ath said : The government is
aggravating the e'samial mischief of
tbe situation in South Africa by their
management of the concentration
oamps The death rate of children,
measure it as you will, is hideous,
excessive and appalliDg. The policy
of devastation has been admitted to
be a mistake.
I wonder what Lord Palmerston
would have said of a government justifying themselves by Baying that
Russia in Poland and Austria in
Bosnia had done ^something like tbe
same. The war has entirely changed
in character and is drifting into a
war of extermination of a people
fighting for their own land.
The policy of unconditional surrender and submission moans extermination aud annihilation. The presoni
attitude of the government is one of
sullen desporation. There is nothing
woise than mottle in a blind horse.
Tho King porhaps at no distant date
will have to seek other ministers with
a better insight and a more pliant
mind in face of the dangerous and
complex situation whicb confronts the
country.

Admiral Gaillard'a squadron consists
of two armored cruisers, two second
class cruisers, and one third clnss
cruiser. Tbo crews aggregate 3,286
men, but the vessels will also carry
landing parties. The Journal des
Desbates says; Everyone at Constantinople and the other capitals
must be aware that the Frenoh and
Russians arc completely in accord in
tbis matter. Under these circumstances it is difficult to believe that
the Ottoman government will not
come to terms and recognizing its
error before it is to late, relieve us of
the necessity of using other means
than those of diplomacy and courteous discussion. La Liberte remarks
that tbe fact tnat Admiral Gaillard
has embarked 2,000 marines is a
warning to the Potre that France will
not stop before a slight show of insistence but will go to the end even
though, war should ensue.

FRENCH FLEET RETURNS.
Paris, Nov. 1.���A despatch from
Toulon to the Figaro confirms the report of the return of the entire squadron, and adds that Admiral Gaillard's
division is held in readiness to sail at
a moment's notice. Editorially the
Figaro and other morning papers ex-
pieas surprise at this perplexing and
unexplained move after the dispatch
of Admiral Gaillard to the Levant had
been officialiy;annouricd. The Marseilles correspondent of the Matin
says the return was due to the fact
that the squadron left with only two
day's rations.

almost completed. A temporary structure has been erected in plaoe   of  the
destroyed   Cbien   Nen   tower,   under
which Emperor   Kwang  Su will pass
when he will enter the forbidden oitv.
It   is   painted   to   resemble   the  old
stone tower with   cannon in the win-
cows and looks like a piece of theatrical scenery.     Every   effort   is  being
made to ooneea!   from   the   Oourt the

Glasgow,   Oct    81.-The    bubonic
plague   has   reappeaieci   here  during
the week.     Four suspected caseB were
removed   from   the    Central   Station
hotel   belonging   to   tbe   Caledonian
railway and one died Saturday.     The
hotel has been closed  and   the  guests
leave by noon tomorrow.
It  appears  that all tho oases under
suspicion   are  serious   at   the   hotel.
An examination of the baoterii proves
conclusively  that   the   disease is  the
bubonic    Plague.     The      municipal
authorities   in   a  notioe  announcing
the fact, urge all householders to destroy rats. ______

NO CAUSE FOR ALARM
Washington, Oct. 31���M. Margorrie,
the charge of the French embassy
here, had a short interview with Secretary Hay today after which they
left at once for the White House. M.
Margerrie feels confident that there is
not the slightest danger ol the dissolution of the concordat owing to the
action of the French government in
sending waiships to nuake a naval
demonstration in Turkish waters and
to seize a customs port. The other
natious are parties to the concordal,
understanding tbe situation perfectly,
and in fact most of them ha/e grievances aud olaimB themselves like the
French complaints so they may look
with complacency upon the effect to
make the Porte meet its obligationnsj
There is also precedent for this action
as a few years ago Austria seized a
Turkish port in the gulf of A.'oxandria
and held it until her claims were
paid, yet the incident did not oause a
protest by.the other powers or even
attraot much attention, It is confidently expected that it will not be
necessary for the French admiral to
p-occed to any great lengths before
the Turks will meet his demands,

NICOL WAS ACQUITTED.
About three years since the Province published several articles in
which it was alleged that Messrs.
Turner and Pooley were using their
positions in tbe provincial government
in the interests of ocrtain mining companies, also that they were receiving pay for their service, which service consisted in allowing the uso of
their names by the companies. Tbe
companies were formed in London for
the purpose of operating mines in tbe
Klondike. It was alleged that the
companies weie of dubious merit and
tbat tbe names of Merers. Turner and
Pooley were simply used to befool tbe
British investor.
At a result of these publications
Mr. W. C. Nicol, editor of the Prov.
ince, was arrested on a chaige of
criminal libel aod the obarge has
been hangingjover him till a few days
since tbe case came to trial and resulted in tbe jury bringing in a verdict of "not guilty."
Tbe jury in effect held that the
strictures of the Province were justifiable and that Messrs. Turner and
Pooley while publio officials had no
business to become involved in tbe
affairs of mining companies and that
they should not have lent their names
and offloial positions to furthering the
interests of such corporations.
In defence of their action Messrs.
Turner and Pooley claimed tbat they
hud no intention of wrong doing, and
that their only (It-she in allowing
tbe companies to use their names and
the names of their positions was to
foster tho mining interests.
It is obviously a bad practice for men
occupying public positions to allow
tho use of theii names by companies
whose success is problematical. The
mere fact that they permit.it is wiong
as they are used as^a lore and many
innooent people Invest their money
becanse they feel certain that a company indorsed in this way mnst have
merit or prominent men like a premier of a province aud one of bis cabinet ministers would not be connected with it. Under such circumstance prominent names have been
frequently used as a lure to catoh the
unwary and to fleece them. If the
plea put forward by Messrs. Turner
and Poolev that they were disinterested in the matter and cbat they were
innocent of wrong doing is correct It
shows that they must, indeed, be
utterly lacking in the ways of the
world, and should hardly be trusted
to go about or to transact business
without the intervention ol gnardians,
Such simplicity is almost childlike
The verdict of the jury is publio
notice to officials in the future to not
lend their names to corporations, and
if tney do and are criticised severely
for it by tbe newspaper) it is certain
tbat they will not be justified when
the come into oourt seeking justification. The acquittal of Mr. Nicol is
simply another verdict in favor of tbe
freedom of tho pi ess.
HOUSEFLY   PLACERS.
Late news from the placer find ou
tho north fork: of tho Horsefly tend to
confirm the idea that they are
both extensive and rich. Mr. Joseph
Stlrsky, the dlscovorer of 'he ground,
states that already about eight miles
along the creek have been taken up.
He further says that this iu only "the
starter of it and it looks as though
we are going to have another Klondike." Further on he says tliu development work will not be expensive
and that he expects a great rush into
the country in tho spring. Making
due allowar.ee for the enthusiasm ol
Mr. Stirsky it looks as though the
Horsefly placers are really important,
bnt at the same time it would not be
wisdom to encourage a rush thither
until it is ascertained beyond a doubt
that they are extensive and rich. It
would be entailing unnecessary haid-
ship on a number of people to do
this.
It bas been suggested by one of the
coast papers that it would be a wise
move far the provincial government
to send an expert into the district to
examine tbe placers and to give unbiased information abont them and,
In a measure, advise the people.
Official information from a government source would serve as a guide, it
It suggested,   to  those   who may  be
thinkng of trying their luck in the
new Eldorado. If such action is to be
taken the expert should be sent in at
onoe in order to take advantage of the
exceptional weather which is said to
be prevailing in Quesncl at present,
and it is anticipated that the existing
fine weather may be broken up at any
moment and then prospecting will be
difficult it not impossible.
The coast papers speak of the new
find being in Cariboo when as a matter of fact it is located in the southern
part of the Quesnel division. Cariboo
forms the northern boundary of Quesnel division and Clinton, Kamloops,
Revelstokc and Oolden divisions abut
it on tbe south. The eastern boundary
line is Alberta. The coast papers
bave been in the habit of calling Cariboo and portions of the other divisions
by tho same name, but uccording to a
map issued by tbe British Columbia
department of mines tho new placers
aro in (juosnel,
A GOOD SUGGESTION.
The following very sensible suggestion is found in the Empire published
by Roland Iielfort in London: "Tbe
annual reliefs for tho British troops
in India which were suspended two
years ago on tbe outbieak of the
South African war are to be Bent out
this year as usual. These drafts will
set frue some 25,000 or 30,000 time-
expired men, tough and hardened by
years of service and training in a
tropical climate. They are indeed an
army of veterans such as would have
delighted the heart of Napoleon
Why should not these men be offered
a special bounty to serve for, say
year, in South Africa.? Lord Kitchener's greatest need at the present
time is for seasoned and experienced
troops. Here, then, is a uniquo opportunity to supply him with suoh
troops. The vast majority of these
time-expired men would gladly welcome the chance of active service.
Many of them have taken part in
recent frontier fighting in India and
have rendered good accounts cf themselves. They are thoroughly inured
to tbe vagaries of a tropioal climate
and to 'toughiug it,' to a certain extent. If raw, untrained leomen,
whose ba I horsemanship is only
equalled by the eccentricity of their
shooting, aie worth five shillings a
day in South Africa, at tbe presont
lime, what would be the worth of
these 25,000 seasoned soldiers?"
THE LIGHT MATTER.
The West Kootenay Power & Light
Company should accept the offer of
the city council to make the minimum
quantity of power to be furnished 125
dorse power instead of 150, as out
lined in the recent ultimatum of Mr.
L. A. Campbell, the manager of tbe
Power company. The city should not
be compelled under any circumstances
to take more power than It needs just
beoanse the Powor oompany has it to
Bell and is inclined to be arbitrary.
The looal tramway oompany was compelled by tbe power company to take
and pay for more powor than it needs.
is sorry that it made suoh a bar
gain and is talking of suspending
operations partly on account of the
one-sided arrangement which it is
tied up to. It would never do for tbe
oouncil to enter into a like bargain
and be compelled to pay for a greater
quantity of power than could be con
sinned. If tbe Power company is inclined to be unreasonable, and we be
Hove it is inclined to bo so, tbo council bas the propositions of the Noison
Saw &. Plauiug mills, the Nelson Coke
& Gas Co., and Mr. Crofts for consid
oration. If these are deemed unsatisfactory the council can supplement
the present light plant with additional
steam equipment of a sufficient capacity to meet requirements until the
city is able to put in its own large
plant near Ilonningtun Falls. Fifty
dollars per horse power per annum is
too high a price to pay for electrlo
energy,
EDITORIAL NOTE?.
Environment and t mining have
mueli to do with the point of view
from which different people look nt
things, says the Greenwood Weekly
Times, Often what one considers
tragedy appears to another as burlesque. Americans who atendud tho sitting of the Supremo court this week
were not favorably impressed by the
wigs aud gowns worm by tho judge
and lawyers. To them these antiquated accoutrements made the court
appear like a masquerade. Men from
the East where wig and gown have
been discarded years ago or were
never introduced were more amused
than imprusBOd, The old time resident of lliitisb Columbia, however,
has become accustomed to wigs and
gowns and the court would not look
properly dressed without them. There
is something in appearance but it is
not everything. People were more
Impressed by Mr. Justice Irving's
dignity on the bench, by tho caroful
and incisive way in which Mr. McLean presented the facts in tbo criminal casei; in fact by what the chief
actors were, not by what their dross
made tbem.

As a r'.'snlt uf the recent strike of
free gold on thhe 12. It. fraction on
Norway mountain, owned by Messrs.
Terzick and Carpenter, the Trail
smelter has Bent a confidential agent
to examine it, Should the report of
the agent be satisfactory the smelter
management will take hold of tbe
property. Ore oarrying such values
as claimed for the ore of the E. R.
fi-ac.tiuii would be of benefit to the
smelter by increasing the value of tho
matte shipped.
The steamer Kaslo yesterday
brought in one oar of ore from the
Summit mine at Cody, for the Trail
smelter, ono car each of ore from the
Reeo and Rambler-Cariboo, both for
the Selby smolter at San Francisco,
and one car from the Bismarck, sooth
fork, for the Uall Mines smelter.
Operations will be resumed on the
Highland mine near Ainsworth on
January 1st and It is anticipated that
a fnroe of 125 men will be employed.
It is a\'o intended to restart the large
concentrating plant of the Highland
Co, which is looated on Kootonay
lake, at the mouth of Cedar creek.
Tho Rambler-Cariboo Mining Company on Wednesday paid a dividend
of one cent per share or 812,500. The
total dividends paid by tho company
up to date is 8180,000. The mine ��s
producing about $30,000 per month
und the ore averages atout $100 to the
ton.
At present the output of the mines
of the Crows Nest Cual company is
1,800 tons a day and ii is expected
within a short time that this will bo
iucreaaed to 2,000 tons.

Wednet'���,y night from accompanying
Thos. Tait, manager of transportation, R. Marpole, general superintendent of the Pacific division, and party

sup. Accompanying Mr. Tait, were
his brother-in-law, Major Cockburn,
V. C, L. A. Hamilton, formeily land

others of the party were Mr Downie,
J. S. Lawrence, trainmaster, and R.
A. Hainbridge, resident engineer nt
Nelson, and Mr, Armstead, Mr. Mar-
polo's sooretary.      '
The party left Nelson on Sunday
morning and went direct to Phoenix
where tbey visited the mines there
which are making excellent progress.
They then went back to Hartford
junction where they inspeoted the
new loop under construction to avoid
tbe switchback into Phoenix. Thoy
then went into Greenwood where
they spent the night.
On Monday morning tbey left for
Midway on an inspection of the line
which they bad found in excellent condition throughout tbe division. Returning to Greouwood, the party
visitid the smeltei ol the B. C. Copper
company which has been working so
satisfactorily since its construction.
One additional furnace is being put in
and theso will be ready for operation
in a month or six weeks when the
smelter will have a capacity of from
1)00 to 1,000 tons per day. The party
then went ovor the Mother Lode
branch of flva miles, nnd visited tho
Mother Lode and Sunset mines.
Granby was their next point to stop
and there they went through the
smelter which was a scene of great
activity. Two frrnaceu are being
added which will make four in all
and the works will have witb these a
daily capacity of about 1,300 tons.
Tbo manager stated tbat it was the
intention of tbe company to add two
fumaces whicb should be in operation
by tho first of June next. The party
then returnod to Grand Forks and
after going through the city took
train again going direct to Rossland
where they arrived in the evening.
After spending the night there thoy

and found them in good condition.
Tbey left Rossland on Tuesday afternoon for Trail whore they spent a
short time inspecting the smelter and

On Wednesday morning the party
went to Sandon and after making inquiries into the prospects of the mines
of that vicinity they left for Nakusp,
were transferred to Arrowhead and
thence went to Revelstoke and Van
couver.
Good progress is being made with
the now steel bridge across the Colum
bia river at Robson. Train, will be
able to pass over it by the end of the
year. There is yet considerable grading to be done before regular traffic
can be maintained over it. In antici
pation of the changes this will cause
nn enlargement of the round house
and repair shops at Nelson. These
will then be tbe ohief repair shops Of
all tho rolling stock on the lines
from Nelson westward. It is expected
that the staff in the engine room,
shops and yards will numbor 100 men.
Tbe round house at Eholt is being
enlarged to do repair, ou all the stock
used exclusively in the Boundary.
Tho repair Bhops now at Trail will
ho removed to Nelson.
Mr. Tuit and Mr. Marpole expressed
themselves aa well pleased with tbe
condition of the lines in Kootenay
and with the prospect for the trade to
be done there.
It is practically settled that there
will be a double train seivice on the
main lint of the C. P. R. next summer
beginning when tbe Imperial Limited
is put on. The present mail, express
aud passenger service will oe continued and the Impelial Limited will
probably carry only first class passengers. The time of the last two years
may yet be shortened a little.
