Toronto, Nov.   19.—At the annual general meeting of the   Canadian     Bankers'    association     Mr.
Clouston, genera! manager   of   the
Bank of Montreal, in the course  of
his address referred to the numerous
evidences of the expansion of trade
and commerce in Canada, as shown
by the growth of the  note  circulation and bank deposits, and by  the
immense   development   of   foreign
trade.
Referring to the proposed  establishment of a  mint,   he  expressed
the opinion that decision   to  do  so
had been arrived  at   without   due
consideration.      He feared it would
lead to some disturbance of our currency system.     The use of gold instead of notes   as   daily   currency
would cause heavy loss by abrasion,
and was not appreciated  generally.
On the other   hand,   bankers  were
only allowed to hold gold to the extent of 60 per cent of their cash   reserves,    the   remainder   being   required to be in Dominion notes.    If
banks, on the other hand,  exported
gold, which   they  would  doubtless
be driven to do, they would be subject   to considerable   loss   on   exchange.     There was some profit in
minting silver, but this came to the
Dominion  government  from   England,in any case amounting to $70,-
000 yearly.      Minting   of gold entailed actual loss.

In addition to the principal of the
award  and   the   interest   thereon,
which makes a total of about   $5,-
000,000, Portugal paid $140,000 on
account of the seizure in 1840. The
Portuguese   government   has    deposited security valued at $5,000,-
000 in a London bank in  the  name
of Ambassador Choate.     A  large
proportion of the award goes to the

New York,   Nov.   20.—Forbearance has  ceased  to  be a  military
virtue in the Philippines, according
to news from the   war  department,
says a Washington dispatch to  the
Herald.     Lord    Kitchener's    plan
of operations in South Africa, harsh
though  it appears  to  be,-appeals
to  officers of the war department,
and during  the  coming  campaign
no mercy is to be  extended  to  the
Filipinos in active rebellion or give
aid and comfort to the   insurgents
The administration,   according  to
a high official, has become weary of
the long drawn   out   war.    It   has
been    conciliatory  in  dealing with
the insurgents   and the   efforts   to
accomplish   peace   by   this  means
have met with contempt.  It is   now
proposed to give  them  a taste  of
real war, and though  the innocent
may suffer, it is only by this means,
it is believed  that  the guilty  may
be    punished.      When    Secretary
Root returns  to  Washington  final
instructious will be cabled to Major
General MacArthur relative  to   the
operations   to be conducted.     Ag

United States elections.    The Dawson   Nugget    held   the    election.
When  the   votes   were counted it
was   found   that   the country had
gone   pell-mell   for   Bryan.      McKinley   was   snoaed   under by  an
even   larger   avalanche   than   that
which buried   Bryan   in   the United
States.    There   were   3,337   votes
polled,   and  of these,   2,404   were
for the  Democratic candidate, W.
J. Bryan, and 933 lor William  McKinley,   the  since-elected   Republican president.    The democratic majority  was   147.    By  the  terms of
the   election,   Bryan   will get   the
Klondike souvenii which is now being prepared at a cost of over $500,
The   Democrats   held a   big   time
after  their victory.    They paraded
the streets  in  crowds and cheered
for Bryan.
Skagway also went for Bryan,

depositors.   The alleged defalcation
of  Assistant    Cashier   Frank   M.
Brown  to   the   amount   of  about

Fatal Callslon
Spokane, Nov. 19—A fatal wreck
occurred on the Spokane Falls &
Northern railway two miles south
of Dragoon station. One man was
killed and two others sustained serious injuries.
The train was the  regular  south
bound freight   consisting  of   eight
cars and a caboose.    When  at  the
point where  the  tragedy  occurred
the rails spread because of the action of the snow and rain under the
ties,  and four cars  were    thrown
down a   rather steep grade,    The
engine and tender were left on top
of the grade,   also'the   remaining
four cars of the train  and  the caboose.
The four wrecked 'cars contained
sacked lime. In one of these cars
seventeen men were stealing rides.
One of these, John Klein, was
caught between a pile of wreckage
and crushed to death. Several
others were pinned .down by timbers. Patrick Welch and Richard
Hocking were dragged out later by
the trainmen, and the rest escaped
by a miracle without injury.

[New Vork, Nov. 15.—There is

Jcepted by Boulevard papers as
• gospel truth.

San Francisco, Nov. 15.—The
schooner Mascotte, wliich^has ar-
rived here from the South seas,
brings tales of cannibalism and the
massacre of blacks on the Savage
islands.
For the past two years the Mascotte has been trading between the
Solomon islands,^New£Guinea and
New Ireland. Its deck rails and
sails bear the marks* of the canni-
balVspears and bullets.
The*steamer*arrived at Komali,
in the Admiralty group just after
the murder of Herman Matzke, th*
trading agent there. This was on
Aug. 29. Capt. Maceo and a boat's
crew went ashore and found that
the copra house had been looted
and the trader's home was a wreck.
In the yard of the latter a big pot
was'still sizzling over the dying
embers of a fire, and in the pot were
found some of the bones of the
trader. The cannibals had not gone
far.
They had found   in   the   agent's
house 15 guns, and with tbese they
suddenly appeared and  opened  lire
on Captain Maceo and his crew,    A
hasty   retreat   was   made   to   the
schooner.      The   bullets from  the
islanders riddled the rails and  foresail.    Captain Maceo brought  into
play a small gun and its noise, more
than effectiveness, scared the cannibals off.     The Mascotte,   which  is
an auxiliary schooner in   the Caro-
lias,'notified the officers ofthe German sloop of war  Zeadler   of   the
murder.    Both schooner  and  warship returned  to   Komali   and  the
native villages were shelled. Eighty
villages were dtstroyed by  fire,   it-
natives were killed and 20 prisoners
taken.

Kngllng S)iii|iiiili)
London,Nov. 16.—Public anxiety-
remains strained until that none too
robust monarch, the Czar of Russia,
recovers. In political circles any
other issue of his majesty's malady-
is regarded as a nightmare.
The I.ondon^newspapers comment on the czar's illness with peculiar sympathy. The Times remarks that it has always been believed in Kngland tbat the czar "reciprocated the national sentiment
toward him and cherished great regard and reverence for our beloved
Queen."
The Times also says: "The czar
has exhibited consistent attachment
to the cause of peace. It is hardly
necessary to say that any event
which will lead to a change in the
occupant of the Russian throne at
tbe present anxious state in the far
east might very gravely prejudice
the situation."
ANCIENT RECORDS
Strange Revelations In Papers Found in Pekin.
Monterey, Mex., Nov. 16.—The
report that American officers have
unearthed ancient recorts in Pekin
showing that the Chinese discovered
America 1500 years ago and erected
temples in Mexico, has aroused the
greatest interest among the scientific men of Monterey and throughout this country.
The Chinese temples alluded to
are in the state of Sonora, on the
Pacific coast. The mines of one of
the temples was discovered near the
town of Ures, in that state, about
two years ago. One of the large
stone tablets fonnd in the ruins was
covered with carved Chinese characters, which was partly disciphered
by a learned Chinatmn, who visited
the ruins at the request of the Mexican government. This Chinaman
made the assertion at the time that
the ruins were those of a temple
which had been erected many centuries ago by the Chinese, but his
statement was not received with
credence.
It has long been claimed that the
Indians of the state of Sonora are
descendants of these early Chinese
settlers. They possess many traditions and characteristics of tbe Chinese. If the report ot the finding
of the records in Pekin is verified,
an expedition will go from here to
explore further the ancient temples
of Sonora.

New   Vork,   Nov.   14,—Mieheal
Davitt, M. P.,  cabled  from   Paris:
"It is a unique testimony to the
great    individuality     of   President
Kruger that his voyage  to   Kurope
is  watched  with more   interest   by
the  continental   press   than   is   the
progress of the war in   China.    All
speculation agrees upon two points,
There are   to   be  important revelations.    In one informed  quarter   it
is ascertained   that   Mr.   Chamberlain will soon have   an   opportunity
of reading private   letters   found   in
Johannesburg that   will   place   the
active   complicity   of   the   colonial
ollice in the  Jamiesot\ raid   beyond
further dispute.    Proof will also be
adduced that Kruger purchased the
ammunition for   the   Boer   armies
from   Birmingham firms,   in   which
the family and friends ofthe  colonial secretary have a large direct   interest.    The   Gelderland   will   stop
nl Port Said only   to   receive   dispatches,,    and   will   proceed   in   a
few days to   Marseilles, where she
is expected to arrive on the lytb.
A noble figure i.s taken out of
the public life of Canada by the
withdrawal of Sir Charles Tupper
Irom public politics. No country
can be the richer for the loss of a
man of great ability, true patriotism
and dauntless courage.
Lord Roseberry made a stirring

Allail.  lu f'hlna
London, Nov., 14.—A dispatch
to'the Standard from Shanghai says
that Sir. Robert 'Hart, director of
the Chinese imperial maritime customs, has-been appointed to arrange with the ministers in Pekin,
the amount of indemnity to be paid
by China and the~method of payment. An imperial edict has been
issued appointing Li Hung Chang
general issimo of the Northern
army, vice Vung Lu.
A protracted conference of the
foreign ministers was held today,
at the conclusion of which there was
a generaLexpression 01 gratification
at the progress made toward reaching a settlement. It was stated
that most of the minor points had
heen disposed of and that an agreement had b_>en reached upon several essential questions. The meeting disclosed fewer differences over
essent'al points than had been expected, largely due to the fact that
the ministers had received definite
instructions from their home governments. Minister Conger said he
was] encouraged to believe that
propositions woeld be ready to be
submitted to the Chinesejplenipo-
tentiaries at an earlier date than he
had heretofore hoped. The ministers will meet again tomorrow.

Makes a Statement Regarding English Railways
In China.
New Vork, Nov. if).—The British government having called tbe
attention of Count Lamerdorf to the
manner in which the Russian tioops
are holding * British railroads in
China, and the Knglish papers having made atticks on Russia, which,
if founded on truth, would place
this country entirely in the wrong,
the following statement has been
made by a Russian officer :
"Russia." he said, "was the first
to arrive on the scene after the -outbreak in the neighborhood of Pekin.
She found the railroaJ destroyed
and abandoned. It was a question
about wnich there was no time to
waste or to go'and ask the advice
of the Knglish who showed no
anxiety to come and guard their
road. We proceeded forthwith,
using the utmost speed, to make repairs, manned it, and placed it iu
ruuning order.
"Did tbe Knglish expect that
after we had expended an extraordinary amount of labor, and after
large money expenditures, we are
going to hand hack tbe railway at
their request. Would anyone expect that?
"We had and have no intention
of keeping the line, but certainly we
did not propose spending our energy and money for tbe benefit of the
Knglish.
"We, therefore, held, and are
holding the sections until an estimate of cost has been made out.
As fast as this is done, such sections,
with estimates, will be turned over
to Marshal Count Von Waldersee
for him to deal with. Tbis is our
plan, and it is a very simple one."

Mai-Neill Withdraw*
A. H. MacNeiil has withdrawn
from the contest in Vale-Cariboo
and will be succeeded by John Mc-
Kane in the Conservative interests.
In retiring from the field Mr. MacNeiil has given his reasons in lhe
following letter addressed to the
electors:
To the electors of Vale-Cariboo:
It is with regret that I find myself unable to give that time to the
conduct of the present campaign
that its importauce demands. Sirce
I was nominated matters bave arisen
in connection with my professional
practice that require my attention
to such an extent as]to make it im
possible for me to visit the different
parts ofthe district as I desired and
originally.intended.
Having conferred with the executive of the Yale-Cariboo association
and stated my position to them, it
was agreed that I can honorably,
and while retaining the confidence
of the Liberal-Conservative parly,
withdraw from the campaign. I
therefore asked the executive,''after
conferring with as many of tbe local
associations as time would permit,
to name a candidate in my/ place,
and I am happy to inform you that
the Vale-Cariboo executive have
chosen John McKane of Rossland
as tbeir candidate tu represent tbe
party at tbe election to bc held on
the 6th of December next.
I have known Mr. McKane for
more than 15 years and feel that be
is well qualified in every respect to
be your representative. From his
prominent connection with the mining industry he i.s particularly well
fitted to represent this riding anil to
call attention to its many needs. 1
hope the friends who have so loyally supported me in ibis cause will
give tbe same support to Mr. McKane, and 1 can assort them tbey
will never have cause to regret it.
Thanking my friends for the
hearty support tbey have given me,
1 remain,
Yours sincerely,
A. II. MacNeiil.

With MacNeiil out of the  running
iu  this Riding  and   M.Kane   in   his
place, tbe prospects forthe opposition
I is not a bright one.    By thn withdraw-
j al of their  candidate   tin;   Consurva-
l tives acknowledge a weakness that wil
'not help them   among   the  doubtful
voters.
If lhe Liberal-! win  it  will  he   be-j
- I cause they are   the  Govern.nent,    not
j because of the number  of  votes that J
their candidate may yaiu in his ttotilp-
ing tour.    The fight will develops into,
one between (.iulhh'T ami his majority
in Yale, Cariboo and Lillooet ami Foley, backed ity majority from lvist  and ,
West Kootenay
The Lib,.i-  workers,   bere at   least,!
are hardly devoiii.g as   much   interest
to their rampaigniiigas they ordinarily
do to a game nf sola    What work they j
ure doing is confined too much among j
[ those wboie votes they t,re reasonably J
j sure of getting,    Jf their man is beat- j
I en through not carrying the Kootenays j
• by a big majority that will he the rea- I
' son why.
