Sometime ago news wus received

was sent liy cable, by Narroguin, to
tin- Colombian representatives nil
over tlie world witli Instructions to
transmit it. to the various Governments. .Minister Hart was asked to
send fuller information to Washington. It now appears that Narroguin
did not peacefully succeed Sun Clemente but seized him, together with
Ueneral l'alaeio, the Secretary of
State, and put tbem in prison at Vill-
ita. The coup d'etat took plaee on
July :ilst. Mr. Zalamea saw President Sun Clemente in prison. Tlie
President told him thut be would not

of things. Narroguin is conducting
himself in a manner little short of a
military dictatorship. Several of the

London correspondent, Many people
connect thi1 Portuguese reinforcements
with an intention to refuse tlie Hoer
fugitives an asylum in Mozambique,
and tlie determination of the Lisbon
(Iovernment to no longer permit tbe

Hay definite assurances that "this

US vlvendi was concluded, and to see

Dominion of Canada, and especially
protested against the location of tlie
boundary line along the Klebiui Uiv

���Washington, 1). C, Sopt. 7.���Tbe
attitude of the Herman Government on
the Russian proposal for the, evacuation of l'ekin has been made known
to the authorities here. It comes in a
communication from the American
Charge D'Affaires at Berlin, Mr.
Wm, .lackson, and with clearness sets
forth the Herman position.
In substance it states that Germany
is desirous of avoiding any friction
between tbe Cowers, but tbat she considers tlie conditions at l'ekin such as
to require tbe retention of the German
forces there.
There is reason lo believe that the
Herman position in favor of remaining at^ l'ekin Hnils strong sympathy
and approval at other European capitals. In this connection a great consideration has arisen as to whether
the Ministers shall remain at l'ekin
along witli tbe troops. There is no
necessity for continuing tbe presence
of the foreign Ministers and the negotiations are now taking into ciiusider-
iition the departure of tbe .Ministers
to Tien Tsin, even Bhould tbe troops
be retained. Without doubt the developments of the past :M hours are
regarded as Important by the Stale
Department and perhaps the Herman
view, taken in connection witli tin1
French response, which while not no
positive in terms is still full of significance, has determined the State Department to keep well informed.
ROCKIIII.L INDIGNANT.
Says He Did Not Give the Correspondent at Shanghai an Interview.
Washington, Sept. 7.���The State
Department this afternoon issued the
following:
"A cablegram has been received,
dated Shanghai, Sept, li, frillll W. Vi.
Rockhlll, in which he authorizes the
State Department emphatically and
categorically to deny the statements
made in correspondence relating to an
interview alleged to have been given
by him. The only interview be has
given related strictly to the circular
of July 3. lie states that no merchant vessel will be sailing from
Shanghai for several days."
The Associated Press interview with
Mr. Hockhill. dated Shanghai. Sept.
3, was sent from Shanghai hy cable
after having lieen carefully prepared
by a trusted stall' correspondent of
the   Associated    Press   at    present   in
Shanghai,
Shanghai. Sopt. 7.���Mr. William
Woodville   Hockhill.    I'nited     States
special commissioner  in china, when
questioned today regarding bis denial
of the Statement! made by bim to a
correspondent of the Associated Press
und cabled to the United States from
Shanghai last Sunday, said the State
Department bad cabled him regarding
the interview and as he considered the
conversation personal be bad fidt jus-
tiliud In replying that be had given no
interview.
The correspondent of the Associated
Press on tlle occasion in question visited Mr. Kochhill as correspondent
und for the puipusc of Inquiring
whether in Mr. Rockhlll's opinion
Itussia would withdraw from l'ekin.
As Mr. ltockhi',1   did   not request   the
correspondent to refrain from publishing his views as expressed   during tlle
i versatioii, the       correspondent
thought be desired tbem to be made
known.

that a suggestion to the same effect
was embodied in the reply of Germany that each Power reduce its force
iu l'ekin to a limited number of men.
ami the rest of the troops to be withdrawn to Tien Tsin. Tlie American
proposal will therefore be a compromise,
MORE troops SENT.
The   Loudon correspondent of The
Tribune says:
"A very suggestive item of Chinese
news is tbat the order suspending the
departure of Hie Fourth Brigade of Indian troops has been cancelled and
that tlie entire, force will proceed to
the Far Blast. Twelve hundred more
Indian troops have been landed at
Shanghai by Knglaud so that there
are now over 11,(1(111 there.
"Tbe 'German troops landed at
Shanghai yesterday and the Austrians
are to disembark a small detachment
doubtless to give moral support to the
Allies, so tbat a powerful little inter,
national army Is gradually being
formed at the Yang Tie treaty port.
It is possible that the Powers may also have to land a force fu: .her south
before long. Street rlo s a-e said to

with the unnuostlonod motive uf
desiring to catch votes.
There is no evidence whatever thnt.
the lenil mining Industry of liritish
Columbia is receiving lln* least attention from the Government at Ottawa.
.More than a year ago they were
asked to take the circumstances of its
condition into consideration, lint so
far no substantial relief has been
granted nor has any sign made itself
visible that   relief   is contemplated.
The matter was taken np at the recent meeting of the Associated Boards
of Trade of Eastern liritish Columbia, and their resolution of n year ago
was repeated. The Industry iB subjected io very great discouragement,
nil the inure inviting and Intolerable
because so easily remedied. The facts
of the case arc made tin' subject of a
strong and Interesting letter by .Mr.
tl. O. Buchanan, of Kaslo, and published in the current number of The
Mining Review,
It i.s nut as if protection was too
vile a thing to he touched by the Liberal loaders who constitute the present Federal Government. At one
time, it is true, they denounced it as
lln evil that ought tu lie stamped out,
and in 1800 gained a victory at tin-
polls un tin* Btrength of promises to
eliminate it, from our tariff. But once
in, they embraced protection with
art much real affection as their opponents would think it necessary to display. It will not. du. therefore, to
pretend that the fiscal policy of the
Qovernment will not admit of relief
to the mining industry. That, relief
can come only through a tariff provision that will protect it. against foreign competition, precisely in like
spirit and degree as wc have protected
other native industries, to the great
advantage of the country as a whole.
The principal manufactures of lead
are admitted into Canada under n low
tariff Of duties. Dry white and red
leads pay a duty uf live per cent.only,
and litharge is admitted free. These
are products that enter largely Into
the consumption of the Canadian people. Other lend products pay heavier
duties, hut in scarcely any case heavy
enough to heat off the competition of
foreign countries. What the Associated Boards uf Trade and the people
of Hritish Columbia demand is that
the Government will so advance the
lead duties as t,, Insure the consumption of our own products, and thus
give encouragement to tin- lend   min
ers nf thc Province to develop their
properties. Wc have ll wealth of lend

Conditions it docs nut pay lu worli

that he "has never hnd any political

of the Hear, reports from August. ",
to the Treasury Department on the
operations of his vessel since duly tl,
The report relates principally to Ihe
condition of the natives along Ihe
Alaskan coast and Ihe a.iljaeeul Is*
lads. At Sinrock the surgeon of the
vessel, who was scul ashore, reported
that measles were epidemic and pneumonia prevalent. At Hie Station,
where the Government has reindeer,
much sickness and many deaths among
Ihe natives was reported. Al Cape
York the same fatal sickness was
found among the unlives. Going to
Capo Prince of Walos practically tho
same desperate condition wns found lo
exists as at other places. From thai
point the Hear proceeded to East Cape
village, Siberia, and Iheiice lo St.
Lawrence Hay and Port Clarence,
Everywhere Ihe vessel touched ollicers
were scut ashore to investigate the
condition, At Teller station afl'airs
were desperate. Fully one-half of the
natives around   the station have died.
In some cases whole families have
disappeared und in others the parents
havo died, leaving helpless chlldron,
The salmon arc running, but there
are not sullicicnt numbers of well
people left to catch tbem and thus
provide for the present and the coming winter. The ravages of the disease have been so great that a panic

ancient church of St. Gudule, October

Count of Flanders, younger brother
ol thc King,is so deaf as to decide bim
tn abandon his own rights to the
throne to his only surviving sotn.
Leopold knows that his unpopularity is a source of weakness to the dynasty, and is, moreover, heartily sick
of his crown and anxious to spend
tne remainder of liis days according
to ids own desires, without duties or
responsibilities.
It is therefore probable that Hie
