I  change  Telegraph   Company  B*«_   Paris
I says: Tlie American peace commissioners
j at Friday's joint meeting will definitely
I  insist upon Uie annexation of tlie Philip-
I  pine islands to the United "-**Uiies.
Compromise   Sttg-ffeated.
Paris,  Oct, 24.— The American pence
commissioners were in session again today
from 10 a. m. until almost 2 p. in., when
they repaired to the joint session.    They
took with them a carefully prepared written answer to t'he proposal of tlie Spaniards regarding Cuba.    It  is understood
the American reply is to a certain degree
in the nature of n compromise proposal.
It  Is Mo Compromise.
Washington, Ot. 24.—lt is expected nt
today's meeting of the peace commission
in Paris the American commissioners will
deliver to their adversaries something very
closely approaching an ultimatum.
The president is satisfied alt last that the
Spanish commissioners are purposely delaying the negotiations. This is the belief
of t'he American commission also. Tlie
time has now conic to cut off all false
pleaa and come directly to the main issue
left open by t'he protocol, namely, the dis-
position of the Philippines.
Up to this point the entire time of thc
commissioners has been consumed in repeated efforts on the part of the Spanish
commissioners to force the Cuban debt
question upon the joint commission against
the firm opposition of tlie Americans. The
latter have stated positively that under
no circumstances will tbey assume the
sovereignty over Cuba involving the assumption of the Cuban debt, and the time
has come now when, in the opinion of the
American commissioners, the Spaniards
must be made to understand that this answer is final.
The president today approved the ret
ommendation of General Wade at Havana
that tlie Spaniards bc allowed until December 1 to evacuate Cuba. Meantime.
however, the United States troops now in
Cuba antl others to be dispatched will
take possession of the territory as fast as
the Spaniards vacate it, probably leaving
Havana to the last.
lt was reiterated today that under no
circumstances would the United States assume any part of the Cuban debt or the
debt charged against t'he Philippine islands.
It might he possible the United States
would assume or guarantee the municipal
obligations or Havana or other Cuban
ehies, or would not, at least permit them
to be repudiated. Thc same might be true
at Manila; but as to the national debt
which Spain lias seen fit to charge against
Cu'ba or the Philippines, neither would be.
in any sense, guaranteed. This polity, it
was declined, pur peace commissioners
well understood and it would not be re
ceded from in the slightest degree.
Memphis, Oct. 24.—A special from Forest, Miss., says:
A.* a result of an attempt to ariest a
negro near Harpersville, Scott county, in
tlie eastern part of the state, one white
deputy is killed, three wounded, and, according to the latest report, nine negroes
hnic been killed by the citizens of the
llarpcrsville neighborhood and the sheriffs combined. The trouble originated
last Friday when a. negro named Burke
hud an altercation with his employer,
Charles Freeman, a white man, in which
the negro got the better of the difficulty.
The next night a crowd of white men,
headed by Wallace Sibley, who was deputized to arrest the mun, went to Burke's
house, which is aliout a mile from liar-
persville. When they arrived ou tlie
scene and called for Burke they were
greeted by a fusilude from tlie negroes
coiictjiled in ambush in the bushes surrounding the house and iu the house it-
sell. Wallace Sibley, -tlie leader, fell dead
at the first volley and three more white
members of the crowd, James Johnson,
James Hamilton and James Wells, were
woi.r.ded. The whites returned tihe fire,
but were unable to do any execution, aa
their assailants were all concealed. There
weie not more than eight men in thc
while crowd, and finding it impossible to
resist effectively they dispersed towards
Harpersville. It was not known at that
time that Sibley was injured, but this
morning he was found dead in the yard.
The wounded deputies were able to get
buck to town with the assistance of their
comrades. This occurrence took place
early in the night.
When tfhe crowd returned to llarpcrsville the news spread like wildfire. During the night a large crowd gathered
from the neighborhood. They went immediately to Burke's house and got from
his mother the names of all parties in
the crowds which had ambushed the men
the night before, ln all there were about
40 negroes who had gathered to prevent
th,* arrest of llurke and a list was made
up at her dictation. All of them had
fled, Then thc pursuit and search for
eaih of the prescribed darkies began. According to the statement of reliable citizens six negroes were found and killed by
the crowd of armed and determined citizens before the sheriffs arrived.
•A reliable telephone message received at
a laic hour states that three more negroes
lone been found and kiled, making a total of nine up to date, witli about 40
more to be heard from.

The Joint Trafllc Case   Reversed  by
the Supreme Conrt.
Washington, Oct. 24. —The United
States supreme court today decided the
Joint Traffic Association railroad case in
favor of the United States and against the
railroads. The case was considered one of
the most im**ortant that has ever come before the supreme court, not only to the
railroads, but to the general public, and
because of the vast railroad properties represented by the Trallic Association.
The association was formed November
1!>. lSil"). by 31 railways, representing the
great trunk lines. Thc purpose of the association, as stated in the agreement, was
to establish and maintain reasonable and
just rates, fares, and regulations of State
and interstate trallic. A similar association, on a smaller scale, vena formed
among the southwestern railroads, known
as the Trans-Missouri Association, and
the supreme court, in a notable opinion,
declares the association illegal.
Justice Peckhain announced the decision
today.    He said the court could distinguish no difference between this and the
Trans-Missouri case decided a year ago. i
He said the only new jioint involved was |
as to the constitutionality of the tnjst act.
The court had reached the conclusion tliat |
as railroad corporations performed duty of
a semi-public character, it was within thc
constitutional power of congress to regulate them as provided by  thc anti-trout
The opinion, which was very brief, was
concurred in by Chief Justice Fuller and
Justices Harlan, Brewer, llrown and Peckhain; Justices Gray, Shims and White
dissenting. Justice McKenna took no part
in the case.
Under tlie decision today the decisions
of the United States circuit court for the
southern district of New York and of the
United Stotcs court of ap-ieals, both of
which were favorable to the Joint Traffic
Association, arc reversed.

The name of the big library that was
originally organized for the use of congress, and is now housed in the finest
building ever constructed purely for library purposes, every now and then becomes u subject of dispute. The library
growing up as a reference library for
members of congress naturally took the
"Library of Congress,"-but there are many
reasons for believing that statesmen early
in tlie duys of the republic looked upon
that collection of books as a national library and fuvored a broader name than
the one now given it.
When Jefferson sent his library of 7000
books to Washington after they had been
purchased by the government for $23,900
he forwarded a catalogue of these books,
which he marked "Catalogue Library of
thc United .States." This name indicates
that Jefferson looked upon the libnuy us
a national institution, und not merely as
a congressional library. It is not unlikely
that an effort will be made in the near
future to change tlie n'ume of the big collection of books to "Library of the I'nited

the territory, and many .thousands of dol*
tars'were taken out in both quartz antl
placer mines, "(jovernor'' JJrooks discovered a quantity of renmrkably rich float
in t'he gulch in 18117. The ore was of wonderful richness. The gold bearing rock
was merely a surface deposit, however,
and search as he would Governor Brooks
was unable to find any more of it, and he
gave up the search and turned his attention to placer mining. He was successful
in that, too, for in the same gulch und
above the s*n>t where the llo.it was discovered rich auriferous deposits of gravel
were found and worked. Those diggings
yielded one of the largest nuggets ever
found in Montana, weighing a-little more
than tpMHi. When Governor lirooks left
otr searching for the lost lead, others took
it up, Shalt after shaft was sunk, and
the f-roiuid crosscut in all directions, but
to no purpose. There is left as a monument to this unsuccessful search five
abandoned shafts on a piece of ground UK)
feet square, Year after voir the search
was renewed. Ilarjiin Davis has worked
many years in the vicinity of the place
where Governor lirooks scooped out u fortune in float rock. In a desultory sort of
way he had searched for thc vein, but with
the same results that had marked the efforts of those before him. Davis finally
became Imbued with a theory of his own
iu regard to the location of the vein, and
three ami a half years ago he began work
on the property, first securing a bond from
its owner, John Mclrvine. Davis was
compelled to change his theory eventually,
but lie continued to work, and his stile object was the discovery of the lost lead.

miles from Salmon Siding. There is four
feet of shipping ore on the Copper King,
averaging $100, principally in copper. A
tunnel is in 70 feet, and this will be extended this winter. The claims were purchased from parties on the Sound. 1 am

Pariu, Oct. 25.— The consideration by tlie
peace commissioners of Puerto Rico anil
the Latlrone IhIiiihIs haa now been merge.l
with the Cuban Question, anil all the
points Involved nre being carried forward
by n Hlmiilhineous conclusion. When this
has been arrived at, the Philippine question will be taken up. Of course, there la
a possibility of u disagreement, and the
Spaniards, if the American peace commissioners decide not to assume any portion of the Cuban Indebtedness, may announce their unwillingness to proceed any
further with negotiations based upon tho
protocol. Should the Spnnish decide to
do this, lt will be because they will wish
to excite the pity of their creditors and of
other nations. The eortes may be then
asked to indorse their action. In fact,
the Spaniards may even prefer the resumption of hostilities to acquiescence In
thc American refusal to share their financial burden. The Americans, however,
hnve Intimated to the Spaniards the possibility that Spuin may at some future period be able to deal with an Independent
government regarding the assumption of
the provincial and municipal portions of
the Cuban debt, which Is estimated to
have been $1M,000,000 before the lust rebellion In Cuba broke out, and 1500,000,000
contracted since lHio.
Finally, lt Is suld that there are persons
high ln the Spnnish councils who claim
that Spain would rather submit dumbly
and helplessly to decimation or dismemberment than confront this continued Iln-
anclal burden. One course would leave
her pride unsullied, lt is claimed, und the
other Is regarded as doubtful, if not Impossible of adoption, within the boundaries of national solvency.
Spain, however, will not break off the
present negotiations before having proposed that the i'nited States share half
the Insular debt.
Such a proposition would not be accepted by the I'nited States either directly or
In behalf of Cuba.
The session of the Joint commission ended ut 1:50 p. m. yesterduy.
The adjournment of the Joint commission wus until Wednesday next. Guam ln
the I.adrone group has been chosen by th«
Americans under Ihe terms of the protocol. The chief mutter considered at today's session was the American reply to
Spain's revised and renewed propositions
of the last meetings, nnd the indications
ure thut the Cuban question will be disposed of this week. But no detnils have
been given out by either side regarding;
Spain's presentment of Friday last or the
American answer of the same date.

That Corbin will make nnother f'flT'rt
this win'or, t> secuie n railway charter from the Diiiniiiion Government,
allowing him to extend his railroad into
the Boundary country of soulhurn
British Columbia, is almost on assured
fact. And, that the C. P. Pu intends
to use its power to induce Parliament
to refuse his application for a chirter,
is evidence- by the talk made by Sir
William Van Home, president of that
li up.
Tbe refusal of the Dominion Government to grant this charter to Mr.
Corbin last setsion, at tbo request of
tho C. P. R., was un outrage on the
people of southern British Columbia
and tho part taken in it by the Boards
of Trade of our coast cities, acting entirely through inliish motives, has
served more to throw the trade of the
Kootenay people, into tho hands of
American and Eastern Canadian merchants, than anything else. It tho
coast cities would be more liberal in
their views toward Ihis part of the
province they will reap the benefit by
securing their share of Mm Kohtenay
