Toronto, Oct. 23.—Letters received here yesterday from officers
of the first Canadian contingent go
to show that the departure of tha
regiment from South Africa . was
preceded by a'regretable misunderstanding, owing toCol. Otter assuming the responsibility of intimating to Lord Roberts that the whole
force was willing to remain till the
end of the war without consulting
the regiment, which was at that
time broken up in small detachments   and   stationed   at    various
When the men learned of Otter's
action in pledging them   to  remain
without their knowledge they  were
angry and stated  that they  would
have willingly consented to remain
had they been asked,   but  objected
to Col. Otter giving a   promise  off
hand.    So strong was  the  feeling
that eventually all the men who had
volunteered    were   ordered   home.
The  remainder,   consisting  of   the
permanent corps, were grouped  together and  now  form   a  company
which remains under Col. Otter.

Nelson, B. C. Oct. 23.—[Special]
Three years imprisonment was tbe
sentence    imposed    on    Wm.    R.
Hocking,   ot   Cranbrook,   charged
with  bigamy.    Hocking  was  married  at  Salt Lake, Utah, in   1895.
They   afterward   separated, and in
i8y8, he received a Salt Lake paper
in   which  was  advertised  the  fact
that he had been  made the defendant in  a suit  for  divorce instituted
bv Winnie  Hocking,  and that if no
counter plea  was entered within Go
days  the  decree   would be granted 1
by default.
Hocking asserted lhat he took no
action   and  thought   the matter of
his firrt  marriage was disposed of.
Later, in 1899, he   met  Miss Montgomery and  married her.    A damaging piece  of evidence was given
by the second  wife who testified at
Moyie  that   Hocking  once said to
her in a fit  of passion: "Vou have
no hold on  me."    The  prosecution
held   this  statement   indicated that
Hocking knew his second marriage
was not bintling  and therefore bigamous.
In reply to the query as to whether he  had  anything   to  say before
sentence was passed Hocking made
the  neatest  speech  ever  delivered
from the prisoner's box in the court
louse.    He urged his honor to deal
leniently   wirh    him,     maintaining
strenuously    that   be   was   wholly
guiltless   of  any intention  lo break
the law  or  wrong the woman who
bad become his wife  at Cranbrook.
He was anxious   to   have an opportunity   to   see   Miss   Montgomery
before being   taken   to the penitentiary   in  order   to   turn   over what
money and   valuables  he possessed
to her   and   would   also,   if the law
permitted, marry her at tbe earliest
possible  moment  in   order that her
unborn child might have a name.
Hocking's   remarks   were   neatly
worded and  created   a  marked im-
j pression.    The   sentence   of   three
years was then passed and  the case

Territorial Integrity.
Want the Ports   Kept   Open   to
the Peoples  of  All
London, Oct. 20.- -Germany and
England have formed an alliance to
maintain the territorial integrity of
China and to keep the ports open.
The terms of this important agreement of the two countries, which
was arrived at between Lord Salisbury and Count von Hatsfeldt, Cer.
man ambassador to England, are
officially given out as follows:
"The German government and
Her British Majesty's government,
being desirous to maintain their interests in China and their right under existing treaties, have agreed
to observe the following principles
regarding a mutual policy in China:
"Firstly—It is a matter of joint
permanent international interest
that the ports on the rivers of China
.should remain free and open to
trade and to every other ligitimate
torm of economic activity for the
peoples of all countries without distinction, and the two governments
agree on their part to uphold the
same for all Chinese territory, as
far as they can exercise their influence.
"Secondly — Both governments
will not, on their part, make use of
the present complications to obtain
for themselves any territorial advantage in the Chmese dominion,
and will direct their policy towards
maintaining, undiminished, tbe territorial condition ofthe Chinese empire,
"Thirdly—In case of another
pov.fr making use ol the complications in China, in order to obtain
under anv form whatever such territorial advantages, the two contracting parties reserve to themselves the right to come to a preliminary understanding regarding
the eventual step to be taken for
the protection of their own interests
in China."

Buffalo, N. V., Oct. 22.—A special to the News from„Corry, Pa.,

this morning, when the dead bodies
of Harry Bettis and Daisy Blyden*

the deed was done was clenched in

Rossland Defaulter Caught -
Will be Extradited
Fred Yuengllng, Defaulter, Arretted at the Instance ol Lion
Brewing Co. Rossland
Rossland, B, C, October 22.—
Ered Vuengling, who left several
mementos in Rossland when he
hurriedly departed as manager of
the brewery, has been brought up
with a sharp turn. He will be extradited and returned to British
Columbia on the charge of embezzlement. Vuengling went it thick
and fast while here, and when he
departed^he borrowed right and
left and jssued~checksVhich have
been framed. Of hiirf^the New
Vork World says:
"One more checker has been
added to Ered Vuengling's already
checkered career. Hero of the
tenderloin and son of the millionaire
brewer, he nevertheless spent last
night iu Ludlow street jail. He was
locked up there yesterday morning
accused of embezzling $387 in July
of last year. His accusers are the
Lion Brewing company, of Rossland, British Columbia.
"The young man bobbed up in
New Vork a week ago after four
years absence from town. An irate
father was to blame for his sudden
departure, but reports reached the
tenderloin that the young spendthrift was settling down in Biitish
Columbia and doing a fine business
there. But the reports were not
quite accurate, for Deputy Marshall
Bernhard had a warrant in his pocket for the young man's arrest a
week ago, and he was looking high
and low for him.
"Vuengling avoided the tenderloin and that was where Bernhard
naturally sought him. But he
caught him yesterday morning in
New street just after he walked out
of the Hoffman House cafe.
" 'Is this Erederick D. Vueng-
lin?' asked Bernhard.
" 'Ves.' replied Vuengling, all
unsuspecting.    'Why  do you ask?'
"'Vou are my prisoner,' was
Bemhard's answer.
"A few minutes later Bernhard
had his man before United States
Commissioner Alexander in the
federal building.
" 'What have you to say?' asked
Commissioner Alexander of Vuengling.
" 'Not one word,' replied the
young man.
" 'I request,' said acting Cousel-
General C. Give Bayley, of Great
Britain, 'that the prisoner be held
till extradition papers can be made
out. Then we can arrange for the
return ot the prisoner to British
"The commissioner granted the
request and committed the millionaire's son to Ludlow street jail to
await a bearing on October 22.
"A few years ago Vuengling was
one of tbe most widely known men
about town. His father owned one
of the biggest breweries in New
Vork, and his pocketbook was always open to his boy. So Vuengling went the pace. He aspired to
be the best fellow in the tenderloin,
lie was—while bis father's money

New Vork, Oct. 22.—Lord Salisbury's diplomatic success in making
terms with Germany and intervening in the China negotiations without authority, silences all talk about
his retirement from the foreign office, says the Tribune's London correspondent. The most industrious
cabinet makers now admit that he
cannot be sparred from the office
and that he must be allowed to
hold it and the premiership as long
as possible. Lord Landsdowne is
now relegated by the rumormong-
ers to Dublin. Lord Balfour of
Burleigh is named for the war
office, and Mr. Richie for the admiralty. Mr. Wyndham and Mr.
Brodrick are promoted to the cabinet. Each day produces a new
combination from the friends of
ambitious or restless statesmen.

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 2ftth, 1900.
KDITOltlAI.   CltOl'lMNOS.
In light of recent devclopments.the
cry of "Turn the rascals out," is especially applicable to thc Canadian
Socialism seeks to preserve to mankind the natural products and advantages of thc earth.    It opposes
Workingnieii sliould ever carry
this principle Into practice! He just

Yon have a candidate from your own
class, standing in your defence add

support and help on the wheels of
The Independents arc vigorously
working throughout the riding, active missionary work being especially
carried on at tho mines. Foley's
majority will, it is admitted by nil,
lie a record-breaker in thc Slocan.
Ro strong is his cause, that no attempt
nt organization has been made by
his opponents, which is, in itself, an
.admission of defeat for them.
It were folly to credit thc present
Liberal government with thc monopoly of friendly acts and feeling toward Labor. The Conservatives would
have done as much were they as
favorably situated. The govern
•nenCs actions arc but reluctant testimony to the growth of the Independent Labor Party. Send Chris Foley
to Ottawa and he will assist Ralph
Smith in reminding the dominant
party of their duty to the "poor laborer."
A Severn blow has been dealt the
Liberal party by the strong public
protests of L. If. Cook, cx-M.P., and
thc Vancouver Liberal Association.
Thc former accuses his party of being false to their platform, and al
leges that he was asked to pay *?10,-
000 for a senatorship. The Vancouver men assort the government has
failed in its promises to British Columbia, especially in regard to the
Mongolians. If their own friends
condemn them, then why should Labor be asked to support Lnurier's
party ? Labor can best serve itself
by electing its own candidates.
Labor is content to take one onward step at a lime. Man's existence
is a struggle at the best of times, and
any reform calculated to benefit him
in any way has been achieved only
through seasons of struggle and trial.
In this province a breathing spell is
permitted after the victory of the
eight hour law, but the struggle is
to be waged anew for compulsorj
arbitration. Prizes hardly won are
thc more highly esteemed, and arbitration will come in due time. Tho
evolutionary process now taking
place In British Columbia will ultimately result in a condition of affairs
strongly akin to that prevailing in
New Zealand—no strikes, no tramps,
and business stability.
England is the birthplace of responsible government by the people, and
all nations have honored that "right,
tight little island" by adopting its
principle of parliament. Canada Is
one of these, but how Car short of the
ideal it has conic is seen in lhe make
up of the Senate today. We have no
hereditary aristocracy, so tbo upper
'chamber, instead of being made elective by tlie people as il should have
properly been, has been made the
mere tool of the dominant party in
power, which has filled thc soft seats
of the Ben ate with friends of iis own
for political gain and effect. Ho***
debasing this proceedure has become
is seen in the statement of II. II.
Cook, of Toronto, who, if he had pill
up a purchase price til $10,000, could
have obtained one of tliodovoted sen
ntorial positions. Shame upon n
party that would permit of such a
scandal, and thrice shame upon 0
people that would submit to such machine politics, it la high time for our
people to act for themselves,
promises to be a swell affair.   The
attendance of outsiders will be large.
Jimmy Kodgers was showing some
big potatoes here Friday. They
came from A. G. Watson's ranch
