This high rate i.s  b.ised on the fact thai Fiance has  not given a formal declaration of air  attitude of neutrality toward the  Far Easier;! belligerents beyond a  vague statement by Foreign Minister Dcloisse. In fact, the French  government, instead of giving such  an assurance,,has allowed Russia to  use'Jiboutil, which is in >a French  Colony, al the head of the Red Sea,  as a bise of rendezvous for herfleet.  This -is' contrary to the .usage of  other neutral Poweis. Again,  French ships aird, soldiers have  been ordered to the Fast errd of th,e  Mediterranean, and this action, iir  connection with the attitude of the  government, is -thought in . many  'quartets to be significant."

These rumors included the prospective mobilization of the German  and' French armies. The evening  papers also said, that a serious influence was bei"g exercised by the reported difficulties between the Unit-  ed States and Russia, iu consequence  of the refusal of Russia to grant an  exequatur to Mr. Morgan as United  States Consul at Dalrry.       \  Stockholm, 21st:���Most unusual  naval and military activity is being  displayed, considering the neutrality  here. The coast artillery have been  oidered to be i-. readiness. Warships and torpedo boats have been  ordered to be piepared for active service at once.

It is believed heie by some that the  action of China, if she demand the  Russian cruisers withdrawal, will  have to be supported b}' the Powers, most oi',wbom have warships at  Shanghai. ' It is claimed that other  nations are .bound to help China  maintain her neutrality if she finds  she ranuot do so herself.

It i.s  impossible to confirm the statement  but the Navy Department has received no news from Admiral Togo  today and it is considered probable  that thc Admiral, who is engaged  in blockading Port Arthur, has  again attacked the Russians.   c  Victoria, 23:��� The leaders of  the Chinese Reform Parly in this  City confirm today the news of the  death of the-Dowager Empress of  China and rejoice exceedingly at  the fact.

He added,  "How the Japanese' can hepe to  succeed when our army in the east  is strengthened to :. pointequal to  that ot 0'ir adversaries, we are honestly unable to comprehend. It  will rrot be difficult to place two,  four, or even six bundled thousand  additional men in the field. When  our forces are concentrated arid  ready they will fii.ish by driving  thejapanese into the sea."  "Fiankly it seems to us that the  Japanese have utterly failed to appreciate Russian resources, or have  counted on aid from Great Britain  or the" United States, neither of  whom ever contemplated being involved.    .So far as Great   Britain is  concerned, we do not believe any  -hallucinations existed there. We  think,the British Statesmen, who-  did so much lo push Japan into  war, realized lhat'with" a Japanese  defeat they would accomplish tw.��  things for Great Britain.  First, ��� To give Russia a check.  Secondly, ��� To cripple' Japanese '  maritime power, which \\a�� beginning to be greatly felt on the Pacific Coast.' It can be said with the  most po'sitiveness that Russia will  bide her time. She will 'act on the  defensive until she is confident that'  her weight of numbars'will leave no  doubt as to the result. Reinforcements are going forward at,the rate  of three thousand per day.- Probably some time will elapse before  Russia (eels prepared to assume the  offensive.

The disturbance of  the international equilibrium, which  it might, and probably would entail, the despatch continues, might  hardly be matter of indifference toother-Powers besides England.  There is not a particle of evidence to justify the supposition that  the sympathy of thc French for  their Russian allies has iu any way  affected the Anglo-French entente  cordiale. The relations between  the two nations are as satisfactory,  as before the outbreak of war. On  the French side of the channel, concludes the correspondent, it is* unquestionable that the general wish  is l hat the good understanding continue, and that neither France nor  England become involved in the  war in the Far East.  ......   t!o ���tif,uc<l <in Eltflitl.'Pa,:*.  *3  !J  . j���.* .*���*--�����*  s-SrRKfi The Law   .  ���   of Christ.

TO PROTECT THE INTERESTS  OF UNSECURED CREDITORS.  ��Jnable .to Meet Their 'Second Payment on January 15 Owing lo  Continued Depression in Their  Securities.  Toronto,  K.Q   Ames  issued  Jan.  , &  a    letter-  expressing regret  able to meet thc  ir. ��� Messrs. A.  Company have  lo llrcir creditors  that ihcy arc 1111-  sccond payment, or  any substantial pari "of it, coming due  on January 15. Since (he arrangement in June, 'by which Ihej' made a  cash payment of 25 per cent, and were  granted an cxlcnsion of six, twelve  ' and eighteen months for thc balance  of their unsecured indebtedness, the  depression in securities has been so  severe as lo prevent tlicnr getting  favorable prices or strengthening therr  positron.  "Our   liabilities,"   says   the     letter,  "which  at  the  end of May  last    exceeded $10,000,000, now stand    at $2,-  3��7��So5.7t,   of   which   $1,784,903.82   arc  secured    and      $522,991.89  unsecured.  Against  this   amount' wc  have,    after  providing for all probable losses, $425,-  286.78  due   us   by  clients   and   $r.942-  389.03 represented by securities owned  by ourselves,  which   we  regard as  of  good value intrinsically, but not marketable at fair prices within a restrrct-  j ed time, the total of these two amounts  being $2,367,675.81. '   The secured ha-  . bilities- of $1,784,903.82 are being car-  , ned through  loans to  us  by a nurn-  i ber  of lenders  who  hold'thc    great  �� bulk of'our assets specially'pledged lo  ( them.-    The danger is that unless our  ��� posrtion is strengthened these    sccur-  ! Mies may be for-ed upon the   market,  i at such ^prices as  would  leave    prac-  ' tically nothing for the unsecured cre-  drtors. It has therefore become  I necessary to devise some plan to pro-  , tect the" interests of unsecured cre-  , ditors."  The plan .they  propose  is  to  form  i &  Joint stock company,   to   be  called  j the Securities Holding Company, with  } an authorized capital of $645,000. -   Of  . tins- capital,   $600,000   will   be   prcfer-  , ence stock with   6 per cent, cumulat-  , ive  drvidends   to   cover  the    $522,991  i of   unsecured   liabilities.       Thc   company is to buy all their assets, except  one seat on the Stock Exchange, and  to'issue to  them  $45,000  of common  stock to represent their nominal surplus^   but. the   common   stock   is     to  receive no dividend until all the preference has been redeemed.     It would  -be-a condrtion  of such  sale  that ther  whole  earnmgs  of lhe  ' firm    and -of  th�� partners individually for the next  five .years from all sources, less only  living.-,expenses ��� or $0  much  of such'  earnmgs   as   would, be   necessary    to  provrdc for thc redemption of the preference stock in  full,  should  be paid  in for .the benefit of the    purchasing,  company.       In  order that  the    plan  may be carrred out they ask the   cre-  drtors to take preference stock in sat-  ssfactron   of   the   amount   due    them,  pointrng out that it means the    actual  cancellation of the   liabilities of    the  firm to such an extent as to    improve  distinctly, its credit, it being , difficult  to conduct new business and increase  the earnings of the firm with the present   liabilities 'hanging   over  it.  Mr. A. E. Ames'has sold liis residence at 467 Sherbournc street and  Ins Glen Stewart" farm of 100 acres  ��n tlie Kmgston road, to Senator  Cox for $78,000. On June 2 of last  year he rarsed $30,000 on these properties by a mortgage, and on October 22 $29,000 additional by a further  mortgage to Senator Cox. These  two, sums, making $59,000, were turned mto the firm of A. E. Ames &  Company on the dates mentioned. The  balance of the $78,000 represented  amounts  dire  orr  the purchases.

London, Jan. 11.���The Times correspondent at Tokio on Saturday  evening says thai the situation appears  to have improved s ighlly, but the indications are not conclusive. Jrr an  earlier despatch Uic correspondent  said that arr exchange of.views was  proceeding'between the loreign office  and the Russia Legation, but the  hopes of a satisfactory settlement ar-e'  slender, inasmuch as Russia is understood lb insisi on seeking to exclude Japan from a voice in JManchur-  ian affairs. All lire important journals urge immedialc action by Japan  on thc ground ' lhat-Russia's course  is evasive, and designed with the object of gaining time. Tlie slock  mailed has recovered its lone somewhat and everything indicates that the  nation has quietly resolved to support  lire Government in a strong policy,  but will nol brook use.ess procrastination. Sending American, British  and Russian Legation guards lo Seoul  is.regarded as a wise prccanuorr.  London, Jan.   11.���-J lie Times' Tokio   correspondent   on   Sunday     night  said  that' all  reporls about  rhe   continuance ol" negotiations' on a basis oi  the recognition qf Japan's preponderance in Corea should be regarded with  extreme  distrust.      He   asserted    on  good "authority   that ��� the iCorean part  of  the   problem   never  was   a   sourccr  of  serious ' difficulty.      The   optimistic 'line   of   European  news   was. not  echoed in Japan, where public opinion  despairs of any really satisfactory^--  sue  to   the   negotiations   as   lon^^a's'i,  Russia   refuses   to ' recognize   JapWs'  right   to   a   voice   in   the  Manchufi-in  problem.

European friends,' while 'failure  would find, her'-" without, succor.  Therefore England has1 amplv fulfilled  her duty of ally and Japan owes her  a debt of gratitude for her many evidences of sympathy. Thc allusions o'f  English journals are gratifying to  Japan, but evidently there is no expectation  of active aid.  The   Press   says   the   country     only  asks leave to fight her, own battles.  J  .A  ROYAL  VISIT.  [     SHELLING SAN~DOMINGO.  Revolutionists Defeated General  Castillo.

Port,Townsend, Jan. 11.���Fifty-two  lives were lost in the sinking oi the  fine new-steamer, Clallam, plying between Seattle and Victoria, in a storm  which swept over the Slrails of Juan  de Fuca with relentless fury Thursday night. The vessel was a regular  daily passenger packet, and left Seattle  yesterday for Victoria. Site made  moderately good progress ' across the  straits' unlil Trial Island, oil the entrance io the harbor,-was abeam. Then  a terrific cross-sea pelted the- vessel,  retarding her progress. Li I lit* fear was  mauifcjslcd until, word caipe up Irom  below that the vessel was leaking. Investigation showed UraL lire waves had  slo've a dead-liglA, through which water rushed-in volumes, resisting all attempts lo stop it.  Bravely the officers and crew of the  helpless ship worked to save -the boat  and tihe sonrls aboard of her, but in  vain. Staunch as she was, the Clallam could not stand the terrific on-  '.slaug'hts of.-Uhe. seas, and just before  darkness began to .fall it was decided  to make an attempt" to save thc passengers, at least, -'by the boats. The  boats were'launched: IT-hc first contained only women and children, three  hands from the Clallihani, and Ga-pt.  Lawrence, * a Yukon pilot, who had  volunteered to command The boat  was( overwhelmed" six hundred feer  from uthc _ Clallam and its occupants  shrieked -in vain .for .aid from those  aboard'the, steamer. Not a hand  could be,raised -to help them.  . ' A second life boat, filled with male  passengers', arid in command of Second  Officer Cirrrin, was probably lost a -few  mrnutcs later..' Aboard thc Clallam,  watchers saw' waves sweep passengers  from their hold on the 'seats and -hurl  them dnto -the waters. '-��� Though thc  lifeboat was righted later, diligent  search failed to find a trace of her.  More passengers''and members of the  crew /were lost when a third- lifeboat  ,\vas swamped in an attempt to launch'  it. Three passengers were picked up  later by the steamer Bahala.- They had  fastened life-preservers around " their  bodies, and died from exposure. Their  bodies were brought to Seattle.   ���  .After the swamping of the'boats the  members of the crew and the passengers remaining,aboard, devoted them-,  selves to the task of trying to save the*  vessel. ' The pumps were useless, and  ilhr?,e. '.'.gangs of bailers were' set to  /work. In spite of their efforts the  water gained on them, and they were  about to resign themselves'- to, their  fate when the Richard Holvoke/" one  of the srx tugs which had been sent  to-the rescue,from Port-Townsend,  came in srght'. A line was thrown  aboard the tug, and with her-tow, she  started for Port Townsend. It'seemed for-a time that the Clallam was to  be saved, but the hull began to give  way before the- terriffic assaults of  the waves. '   *  At 12.30 the Clallam went on her  beam ends, and began "sinking rapidly. At 1.07 she settled, and the tow  lines were cut. By heroic efforts the  crews of-the tugs Zalion and Jlolyoke  saved the lrves of nearly all who remained aboard the Clallam. Without  a moment's hesitation, the -tugs' boats  were lowered," and thc work. of. rescue began. Before all the struggling people had been taken off the  Clallam commenced to break up, and  soon afterwards went down. All pos-  srble assistance to the rescued people  ���was given by thc two shipmasters and  their crews, and the tugs hurried to  Port , Townsen-J. The passengers  surviving, and the rcmarner of the  crew, then took-passage on the Dingo, bound-for Seattle,-  The closing scene was eight miles  north of (Protection Island, only a short  distance north of Port Townsend, and  approxrmately thirty miles -from Victoria. Tlie survivors of the wreck were  brought to Seattle' on the ' steamer  Dingo, having been landed at-''Port  Townsend by the Holyokc and Sea  Lion. Prominent 'among those known  to be on board, and unaccounted for,  is Homer Swaney, iron and steel plant  promoter and owner of valuable iron  properties in British Columbia. He  boarded the vessel here, and was not  among the rescued.  Tacoma, Jan. 11.���When thc steamer  Clallam was launched here last April  the bottle of champagne'was not broken, but fell and slid down alongside  of the vessel. Old seamen predicted  that drsastcr would overtake the vessel  within a year, and it was said at the  trme that it would be a" difficult matter  to secure a crew to man the .vessel.  Vancouver, B.

No  sign of any such was obtained, and all  arc now forced to thc melancholy conclusion that the total death* tale of 54  will not be reduced. Of the victims  a dozen at least were former eastern  Canadrans, a number of them well,  known. Miss Murray, a sister-in-law'  of E. M. Burns, General Agent of the  Great Northern at Victoria, was from  the neighborhood ol Toronto. Mr. A.  J. L.  Galletly and her daughter were,  "^ Mr. Galletly, former Monlrealers.  Mrs. S. T.

He saw the boat  swept away in thc darkness and engulfed. He himself was picked tip oul  of thc sea by the Hclyoke's cicw an  hour later.

George Herbert Palmer, professor of  philosophy in Harvard University, is op-  'tintobic in regard, to -the college woman-.  He does not believe tliat the higher education is going to Ita-m the 'true wo-  ,(man, and says 'that it does not speak  well for a woman if she can-not standi a  college 'training. His opinion on the subject has been asked, so many times that  he decided to settle the maibber once for  all, and the last time he was asked the  uaual auestion he replied briefly and to  tlie point, "I have no uae for womanhood  that won't wash."  The Climax of Savagery.   l  Never ' have   the   natives   of  a   State  been treated with moie hideous cruelty  than those of the .Congo Free State.   It  is under the personal rule of King Leopold, whose idea is that it should furnish  him  with   money  for   his  private  purse, and money he is  debermiaed to  make out of it, no matter how. Amongst  other devices, vast areas are facmed out  to companies,  in   which,   unless greatly  maligned, he is a large shareholder. These  ?prnpanie3 collect india-rubber.   The system is to force Urn natives to deliver a  ix��rtain lixed amount.    If a village does  nob do this1, the hands of the men are  urt off,^ tlie   village  i-,   burnt,   and   the  women'and  children  given  over   to  the  tender mercies of .some neighboring tribe  si savages.    This procedure is defended  by the worthy monarch, irr his leply to  the English note protesting against such  1 -regime, 03- the following economic doe-  trine:  "Natives cannot be exempted, from nil  taxation when they benefit, by the ma-  tc.ial and trnoral ad van la ires introduced  lato their country. If thev have .0  monev, thev- must pnv irr manual labor."  ���London "Truth."  A Polite Prisoner.  Thi lady who was visiting tho jail  had been much impressed with the aj>-  peairancc and behavior of the prisoners,  and she took occiii--.;! to expicss her  approval to the warden.  "They seem as courteous as anybody,"  she said, eribhiisinsf ic.illy, ''even if they  don't say anything."  "Yes, they'ie polite enough," assented  the jailer. "Bui I'm a lrbtle suspicious  of too line manners." 1  'T don't sec how you can be!" es-'  claimed the Iadv.  "Well. I inn," declared the warden,  "and I have been e\ er since one of the  smoothest of 'thorn broke out of jail  and left a note for me in which ha  wrote, '1 hopo yon will pardon me for  the liLerry of ukiig.'"  A  North-Western   land  company, va  what might bo called 'a syndicate, composed of some of Toronto's xicheat men,  has   recently   been   organized,   with  a  capital of five hundred thousand' dollars,  none of the stock being for sale.   Tire  following is a list of the shareholders of  this close corporation: Hon.-Robert Rogers, Winnipeg, president;   J.  W.- Lang-  muir,  Toronto,    vice-president;. E. .W.  Day, Toronto, general manager; Thomas  G. Blackstock, Roberb L. Pabberson, .W.  R Riddell, K.C., S. H. Janes, S. F. Mc-  Kinnon, A. D. Harris, R. Harsbohe of  WaTkworth.  This company was formed' by Mr. E-  W. Day, who as a boy went west and  resided  for  fifteen years in  Winnipeg,  making his mark with the Ma3sey-Harrra  Company  in   Manitoba.     He   left  that  company in 1S05, to become the Western  agent of the Globe Loan and'Savings Society, of  which afterwards  he became  general  manager, with headquarters in  Toronto,   which  position he held  until  1902,   when   this  most  successful  loan  company  was  amalgamated    with tihe  Colonial Loan.    A year ago he "was invited to undertake thc organizabion of a  newly-projecbed   Employers' Association,  a work which he accomplished in a wonderfully short time, Mr. Day making ib  the third largesb employers' association,  on tlie continent within one year, and it  Will doubtless  prove   to  be one of the  most   useful   organizations   w-hlrch   has  been formed.    Mr. Day,  who is still a  young man and has a-massed considerable  money, seems bo have been again smib-  ten by the Western fever, and is leaving shortly for the North-West bo take  the   uutive  management    of    the very  strong concern mentioned above, and for  a time at least Toronto will loae one of  its mosb active aud respected citizens. -  A^ prominent racing man tells the following story on himself: His jockey feU  ill on the eve of an important-race, and  left him without a rider for the horse  which he had entered for the event.   In  looking about for a substitute he decided'  that his stable-boy, who was thoroughly  familiar   with  "Spitfire'*" ' ways,. would '  fill the bill very acceptably.   "Now you .  .must  be  careful,"  lie  warned  him,  "to    -  use,'Arizona' as 11 pacer; 'he is aywonder,  and   will   lead   the   track;   follow   him  closely   until  just  before   the  finish ���  don't pass him under any circumstances' '  until you get  within a  few lengths of  tlie line;  then let 'Spitfire' out foir all  you're worth."   The capitalist paused in  his recibal, and turned his cigar oiedita-- -  lively in his fingers.   "Well, did he obey  your instructions ?" asked one ol his lis-    "  teners.   "Yes,", answered the owner, ?to '  the letter.    He kept just behind  'Ari-,  zona''until they were almost at ttho finish line," and then he spurted aQiead in  great shape,  but . unfortunately ' there   ,  were four horses ahead of 'Arizona.'"    .' .  Concerning one of Phil May's"old mo4>  els, the Sydney "Bulletin" has the foi-/  lowing:   Brooby was his name,- an ex-'  AngKoan (minister.   Exiled 'from the ministry and dreadfully down on '!hia luckil  Brophy to the last managed to rig himself out in "third editions" of old-fashioned clerical clo tires���a soait of eocles;  iastical scarecrow in had crrcumsbances.  Brophy applied to May for charity, and  the artist, much ,to the old  man's de--  light, gave him a shilling and a "retaining fee" olf half a crown a -week to nit  as a modeL   This ireally meant that for  nearly three years the old broken-down', <  parson, who' had something of it'he look'  and,sto6p of John Henry Newman, waa  one of Plril May's pensioners.   Whenever - -  he  "sat,"   Brophy,  in  adilition   to  tlio".  "foalf-orowm regular," got his dinner ond^  tea at May's.   One day the eighty-yearr-  "old model asked,.May to givelrim some  lessons in dirawing.   Tire joke-loving arb-  isb oonsented, on the understanding -that    "  Bropny was bo' leave May his skeleton.   -1  When lie died.   A contract-to this effect       .  was"written by May and solemnly.signed  by Brophy.    Brophy, who could not bo  ind/uced   to  draw  anything  save  girls'  facea and ladies of the ballet, continued  to receive his lessons and hia half-crown '" ,  up, to tho -week of May's departure frcau  Sydney.   The artist parted with his venerable model in the most comical manner.- "You've played me a dirty trick,','   ���>  said May, "hy swindling me out of that  skeleton.    I  could have, bought one, in  sound order and condition) for half tha  money you've cost me."   The" old. fellow,  -   .  conscious of 'lids base ingratitude to his  best and most patient, friend, answered,'  "Don't be angry with me, Mr. May.
