Britain is excit-  .ing lively interest among the members oHhe diplomatic corps fhere  and on some phases of the controversy their information seem to * be  'more exact than that from Paris  'and London. The despatches' today attached much significance to  the absence of the' French Ambassador from London; and it was stat-  that France would show her animosity by not continuing an Ambassador at London.  WAR MAY TBE RENEWED.  ' London, Nov. 3-The Paris correspondent says, "It is expected that a  rupture of the peace negotiations between  the United States, and Spain will be  officially announced on Friday." The  feeling here is that the attitude of tne  Spaniards is irrational in view- of the  financial proposals of the' U. S. and that  they may ultimately regret having failed  to agree with their adversary.  -  GOVERNOR OF KARTOUM  -London',  in their evidenee,   and they were   close  by.

On Tuesday fifteen minutes of 2 p. m.  (town time) a gust of wind came  circling  over the  mountains,   gyrating into  the  city.   Just before  reaching   Cumberland  it took a set-to with the new board fence  between the premises of the U.  S.   Consul and the new school grounds,  landing-  the fence its entire length flat on its back;  then  it  boldly passed   First  street.   A  little girl was walking up Dunsmuir avenue; it faced her about   and gave her a  push  along.   Then  it danced   over to  Alderman Calnan's new  carpenter shop,  lifted it up, fanned it apart  and Jet it iali  in a heap.    The shingles  look as though  they had suffered an% attack of muscular  rheumatism    They will, never.be  themselves again, but the  boards  if properly  treated will   "become   as   good   as  new.  After this last trick the wind disappeared  as  quickly  as it  came  and  no  further,  trace of it can be discovered.

London, Nov. 3.���������The Vienna  correspondent says the Austrian  cabinet considers an English protectorate of the Philippines the  only proper solution of the question.  Their Loss Our Gain.  The district of East Wellington'will soon  feel the same loss hhat was so   reoently   experienced by Wellingtou people in   the   removal of Mr, T.F, Bate, who goes to Union1  on Wednesday to assume a position in   connection with the mines thore.      During   his  trief term ot residence at.-East Wellington.  Mr. Bate has become very prominent in   all  matters of local interest.    The church, public school and other kindred  matters   hav  occupied a good deal of Mr. Bite's attention  and we think   much   to   their   advantage.  Union will gain what East Wellingtou loses  and The Enterprise will voice   the   feelings  of a large circle of friends in  wishing   Mr  and Mrs. Bate every prosperity in their new  home.���������Wellington Enterprise.  Thursday evening about 6   o'clock   word  came up.from Japtown that a   murder   had  been committed.      Officer Thompson immediately proceeded to the scene of the  crime,  near No. 1 slope.    Dr. Lawrence   was   also  summoned, but the Jap���������Aquiciti Toichy���������  was already dead.      His murderer,-O. Mi-  ura, -another   Jap,   was   nabbed   on-  the  street, near about,   shortly   after   reaching  Japtown and brought up   and   incarcerated  in the lock up, as   were   three   other   Japs  who were   wanted   as   witnesses.    Coroner  Abrams was at once notified, and ordered  a  jury empanneled which was   quickly   done,  as follows : John Bruce,   foreman,   George  Sutton, Alfred Joyce, Thomas Reed,  James  Halliday, John Richardson and Wm.  Nose-  worthy.    The Jury went down to   Japtown  about 8:30 that   evening   and   viewed   the  body, and then adjourned to   Friday   even-  ing at 7 o'clock, to hear testimony.  So far as can be learned at the time���������Friday morning-it was a drunken row.. , Just  previous to the murder, the Jap who  killed Toichy, stabbed another Jap in the  head and gashed his shoulder when Toichy  interfered to protect the wounded man, and  seized 0. Miura by tho wrist of the arm  woildiugthekuite. O. Miura dexterously  passed the knife to hia other hand and  thrust it into Totchy's body just balow the  heart. The latter ran a few steps and fell  dying in a few minutes.  ���������Since-the above was   in type   the  in  quest was held���������Friday evening.  Dr Lawrence testified that when called  he went down and found a lot. of men  standing around a person lying upon the  coal dust. The man was dead and his  clothes saturated with blood. There was  a large gaping wound zk inches below  the left nipple, near the anex of his heart,  caused by a sharp instrument driven  with considerable force. The wound  was the cause of death.  Three other witnesses were called who  saw the murder.    There was  no conflict  NOTICE.  IN    THE     SUPREME    COURT  BRITISH COLUMBIA.

The Pathetic Story of an Irish Boy and a  Priest.  It is the general  opinion  that  a  man  must be pretty bad in order to  be fit to bo  hanged.    There  was  one  man, however,  who used to take exactly the opposite view  of the case.    To  him  it  appeared  that a  man must be pretty good in order to bo fit  to be hanged.    In his  entertaining ���������'Recollections" Aubrey De Vere tells an interesting story of how this  good  man, who  ���������   was  an  Irish, priest,   once  succeeded  in  helping a man to become good enough for  the gallows.  There was a boy whom the priest had  taught to shoot, but unfortunately tho lad  went further than his teacher intended and  showed his skill by shooting a gamekeeper  Then camo remorse, and by and by It be  uiiuo so strong that it overcame tho fear  of death.  "I'm tired out. I can't bear tho pain  in my heart any longer," said tho boy, so  he went to tho priest and told of his crime,  with tho intention of giving himself up.  ������������������Is it to be hanged you havo come  here?" asked the priest.  "It is to bo hanged, your reverence,'*  was tho reply.  "My boy, it's a very serious thing to die  and meet one's. God," said tho priest.  "I'm afraid it's a long Limo since you  wero at church and that you have forgotten your religion. Let me hear now if  you can say the "Apostle's Creed.' "  The youth strove to repeat it, but failed.  "This is a strange thing," said tho  priest. "Here is a man who does not  know a B from' a bull's foot, and yet he  thinks he is fit to be hanged. Where are  you living, my boy?"  "lam .living down there, your reverence, about a inile to tho west,'' answered  tho youth. ,  The priest replied: "I will go to you every night about 10 o'clock. I'd bo afraid  of going before it was dark, for I might  be hanged myself as an accomplice. As  it is, it's a likely thing enough if they  come upon us.''  The priest kept his word. Every night  found him visiting tho self condemned  youth, teaching him tho fundamental  truths of the Christian faith. Ho made  him this promise: '' As soon as ever I find  you are fit to bo hanged I will.tell you so.  Till then don't dare to do anything of the  kind."  Many nights, at the risk of his own  safety, the priest made his way to the boy  and taught him till the repentance that is  , only the sting of remorse passed into that  . truer repentance that is born of love.  One night, before giving the young man  his usual parting blessing, the priest said,  "1^promised,.my boy, to let (you know  when I considered you fit to be hanged,  and now I have tho satisfaction of assuring you that I never knewT a man fitter to  be hanged than yourself."  Tho lad thereupon informed against  himself, but' instead of being hanged, as  he and his friend had expected, he was  transported.  Sulphur Matches.  Sulphur matches havo now been almost  wholly supplanted byLtho more modern  odorless parlor matches, but somo are still  sold, and of those sold in this country  more are sold in the long settled east than  in tho west.  Somo people use sulphur matches for  safety's sake. Sulphur matches are used  in somo hotels for this reason, though  where parlor matches aro not used safety  matches that havo to bo scratched on tho  .box are more likely to be used, and such  matches are used also in sleeping cars and  elsewhere. Sulphur matches ai*e still used  by some old fashioned people who cling to  old customs. Their use is not due to reasons of economy, lor parlor matches are  now as cheap as sulphur matches���������if any-  . thing, a little cheaper. In this city substantially no sulphur matches are used on  the east side, where the bulk of the foreign  population is located. Tho sulphur matches  bui'ned here are used on tho west side.  South America has still a demand for  some sulphur matches in combs or : cards  in which the matches are made in little  ^sheets, separated from one another for  rthree-quarters of their length like the te^th  ..of a comb and joining in continuous wood  at the base. Such matches are broken off  ono at a time for use.' Matches of this sort  were once familiar in this country, and a  few aro still used here.���������New York Sun;  t>  What 'English Means.

Auger a Disease.  An English  journal   thus comments on  the  injurious  effects  of anger:   "Anger  serves tho unhappy  mortal who  indulges  in it much  the same  as intoxicants constantly taken do the inebriate.    It  grows  ��������� into a.sort of  disease which   has  various  . and terrible results.    Sir Richard   Quain  said not long ago, 'He is,.a  man very rich  indeed in physical power who  can   afford  tp be angry.'    This is true.    Every time a  man becomes white or  red with anger he  is in danger  of  his  life.    The   heart and  brain are the organs mostly affected when  i fits of passion are indulged  in.    Not only  | does anger cause partial paralysis  of  the  i smali blood vessels, but the heart's action  becomes intermittent���������that is, every   now  and then it drops a beat���������much  the same  thing as is experienced by excessive smokers."���������Medical Record  NOBLESSE OBLIGE.  Some Eminently PJ������;isuiit Tiiinjf-. Said   of  the    Late    Lord    iU".uuni-s(iulil    anil  night Hon. W. K. Gladstone.  ��������� 'With ceremonies as deeply affecting as  any that can appeal to the imagination  and the heart ot man, tho body or ulad-  stono was laid at rest in that great ."temple of reconciliation" whero so many  British worthies are entombed. He was  not buried by tho grave of Lord Ueacons-  ileld, ' his illustrious rival, aa tho despatches erroneously state, for Boacons-  lield's remains rest at Hughenden by tha  side of his wife, hut his monument is in  Westminster, and ifc is near this that  Gladstone lies. And as the- sculptured  forms of Pitt and of Fox. confronting  each othor in the same great abbey, preserve in dumb show one splendid "epoch  of Knglish history, so shall th-j slatues of  Uladstouo and of Beaconsfield relate another. *  Nor was the oppugnac'y lotween   Gladstone and Disraeli greatly dissimilar from  FIRING A BIG GUN.  THE   FRIGHTFUL FORCE GENERATED  BY  THE   EXPLOSION.  Chat of Fox and P^tc, for it was based on  temperament and mental aptitude. Fox  and Pitt, liko their later successors, were  at tho beginning members of tho same  political party, bnt in a fow years there  camo a separation, and tho lifelong rivalry  for power ensued.  Gladstone, though the younger man,  enterod Parliament in 1333, and Disraeli  in 1837, both supporters of Sir Koborb  Peel. When Peel changed front on tho  Corn Laws Gladstone followed him. while  Disraeli opposed him, aud from that time  until Disraeli in 1870 left the House of  Commons to sit in tho Housa of Peers as  Lord Beaconsfield, a period of inoro than  thirty years, tho two statesmen were  rivals and antagonists in the greatest  parliamentary and political contests of  English history. In every great debate  these leaders followed each other with an  eloquence and a power that has seldom  if ever been equaled, the victory sometimes being with one side and sometimes  with the other,, and each triumphantly  reaching the goal of ' his ambition, the  Premiership of England.  Gladstono survived his distinguished  rival seventeen years, and twice again became Prime Minister, but tho party  which Disraeli built up and led to power  still survives and rule? Great Britain today.  At this moment, when Balfour and  Chamberlain and Salisbury have paid  such glowing tributes to the 'memory of  Gladstone, it is pleasaut to remember tho  eloquent address delivered by Gladstone  on tho death of his own great political foe.  , When the motion was made in the  House of Commons that a monument to  Lord Beaconsfield be erected in Westminister Abbey, Mr. Gladstono. who was  then Premier, supported it. and spoke of  the great qualities and intellectual  powers of the statesman who had passed  away. He likened him to William Pitt,  and eulogized his long-sighted persistency  (of purpose, his remarkable, power of self-  government, and his superb parliamentary courage. And not the les3 beautiful  and commendable, said Mr. Gladstone,  wji3 Lord Beacohsfiuld's sympathy and  helpfulness toward men of letters, and  tho touching devotion to his wife, which  has led to his foregoing the honor of a  public funeral.  This eloquent and generous speech was  felicitously called by Sir Stafford North-  cote a "more enduring monument to  Lord Beaconsfield than could be carved  out of stone."  Thus it is that Englishmen honor then-  great leaders and statesmen, whose patriotism and devotion to duty have mado  England what England is.  The Daku ot' York  Sack   Coat.

It has been calculated that only about  43 per cent by weight of the powder is  converted by the explosion into gas. The  remaining 57 per cent becomes a liquid  tho moment of explosion, and on solidifying becomes potassium sulphate, potassium carbouate and potassium sulphide.  A great many other combinations' take  place, and various solids are formed which  have never been successfully analyzed.  The ordinary charges placed in the 12  inch guns of tho United States warship?  during tliis complicated chemical- transformation exert a pressure on tho walls ot  the cannon of about 43 tons to thc,squarc  inch. This force serves to start the projectile and .develops a speed of 2,019 feet  per second by the time the shot reaches, the  muzzle of the cannon. Up to this stago of  tho explosion the chemical action has gone  on in perfect silence. Tho tremendous report which plays such havoc with the  nerves of the gunners is not caused by the  explosion itself. But as the projectile  emerges from tho muzzle it leaves behind  it ft vacuum in the barrel of the gun, and  the report is caused by tho air in its rush  to fill up this empty space.  Tho forces exerted by these gases in .expanding seem' to radiate in all directions  from the cannon, as ripples arc caused by  dropping a pebble in a pool of still water.  As a matter of fact, it has been discovered  that those linos of forces are exceedingly  complicated affairs aud play very queer  pranks about the cannon. As a result,  few pcopleknow just which is tho safest  or the most dangerous position for a gun-"  nor to take beside his gun. Tho center of  disturbance at the moment of explosion is  the mouth of tho gun. In the case of the  ��������� groat 13 inch guns on our monitors a position back of the gun is much easier than  one nearer tho muzzle. ,    ,_  In addition to this force there is an immense pressure exerted on the sides of the  cannon, so that another distinct scries of  shocks also radiates outward from the barrel of the gun'. These are iu turn more or  less compensated by the forces of the air  opposing them as it rushes into the mouth  of the cannon when the projectile, leave?  it. As a result of all these forces tho atmosphere is, of course, violently disturbed.  Although no projectile strikes tho gunner,  who must stand by, it will be soon that  the air is full of missiles in the form of invisible lines of force or vibrations which  bombard, as it were, every part of the  gunner's body at the same time.  An examination and analysis of the  effect produced upon tho human system  and the mind by tho firing of a cannon is  most engrossing. Men generally accounted courageous tremble violently in their  knees, others feel nauseated, some have  severe headaches, a few have had their car-  drums split or the action "of their heart  affected. .'      , ���������'  Take the vital organ, the heart, first..; In  the space between the right auricle and,  ventricle arc a set of fine, threadlike cords  called the tehdihaj. The coiicussion  makes them tremble like timbers in a  building when thero is'an earthquake. In  a weak man the chamber of. the heart is  left open for an instant, the opening and  closing springs lose their control,, the  heart shakes, possibly the chordaj tcn-  dina> are snapped, contraction or dilation  of the organ ensues and in some instances  death follows.  Deafness induced by an explosion may  be traced to the sudden pressure, upon the  inner orificeof the ear and tho tremendous  vibration set up. The thin, transparent,  fairly bright membrane called tho drum  of the ear is burst, like a piece of t i.-.:.iUi\  paper held taut and forcibly blown upon,  a temporary disturbance of tho mind occurs'and the sufferer becomes dizzy.  When tho knoes tremble, it is duo to the  nervous shock produced in the cerebellum.  All tho nerves and muscles are thrown into atonic contractions and relaxations and  the knees appear to give way.  Nausea is also caused by the physiological change that takes place in tho brain  Thero is a pressure of blood thore, and the  stomach, responding, tries to empty itself.  The whole nervous system, which resembles a mass of fibrous roots running  all over tho body, is affected when a can  non as largo as an 8 inch gun is firod in  close proximity. '  Other outward manifestations occur  when a gun goes off. For instance, clothes  may be torn or a man even knocked down  by the concussion. At the battle of the  Yalu Captain Philo McGiffin, who was  standing near a 6 inch gun, had his trousers torn into ribbons on one leg and a long  rent in the other, his uniform was as full  of holes as a n*>theaten jacket, and he  was nearly blinded an*1 stunned.���������New  York World.

Century  A Russian   Nobleman   Gave   the  Plant Its Name.  About two centuries ago a Russian no  bleman traveling  in Mexico  saw and admired the maguey plant, which is a native  "of Mexico..,  Tho plant was so much admired by the  Russian for its beauty and utility, that he  was eager to have growing specimens in  , his own country. So when leaving -Mexico  he procured some roots to take home to  the czar as a present.  On his first visit to court, after he reached tho capital city, ho told of tho wonderful plant and asked permission of the czar  to present to him tho specimens which ho  had. Tho czar graciously granted his request and gave tho roots to tho court gardener, who promised to givo tho plants his  best attention, but' unfortunately beforo  he could plant them properly as he intcntl-  'ed, ho was taken suddenly ill and died  without having accomplished anything.  Another gardener' was appointed. In  the meantime tho roots lay in tho sack in  which they were first placed. Tho new  gardener, not knowing their value, throw,  the stick away, and it lay unheeded in a  corner of tho garden day after day. Some  time afterward his littlo daughter picked  up ono of tho roots and in a playful mood  planted it, but paid no further attention  to it.1 Tho czar hud forgotten all about it.  In course cf time tho ruler died and also  tho second gardener.  ��������� The plant in after years put.out a few  spikes for leaves, but did not thrive in the  cold air of Russia. It grew very slowly  and its origin was not known to any ono  save tho wife of tho former gardener, and  the child that planted it.  Years passed, and still the,strange plant,  with its thick, long, straight leaves, now  nearly 6 feet tall, did not bloom.'but as it  grew taller it attracted notice, and tho  now czar sometimes looked at it and \von-  dercd if it would ever bloom.- '     ,      ;  , In timo ho, too, died, and still the maguey- bloomed not.       ��������� -  But just after the coronation of another  czar a stalk shot up from tho root of 'the  plant and rapidly grew to the height of 20  feet. Soon 'many clusters of small buds  appeared, which slowly unfolded and became white blossoms... The wonderful  plant had.bloomed at last.  Tho gardener said it-was 100 years old  and had bloomed in honor of the newczar.  Word was sent to him, and he and hia  whole court visited and admired tho flowers and tho plant. -  The poor exile from the sunny skies of  Mexico had earned its reward and a' new,  name, for ever since that day it has been  known as " the century plant."

At 12 years of agecI struck up a friendship with a young Polo named Gojeski,  1 who was in tho same classj with mo at  school." We became inseparable < chums.  Year after year wo wero ^ promoted at the  .same time. . We" took our university degrees the same day,- entered the military  school in the same year and received our  commissions, in tho.same regiment. ���������   L  Short, fair and almost beardless, young  Gojeski was called "lo petit lieutenant"  by tho soldiers, who all idolized him.  At the battle of Worth, Aug. 0, 1870,  after holding our ground from 9 in the  morning till 5 in tho evening against  masses of German troops exactly six times  as numerous as our own, we were ordered  to charge the enemy so as to protect the  retreat of tho bulk of tho army corps. A  glanco at tho hill opposite convinced us  ��������� that we had been,,commanded to go to certain death. The' colonel drew us up to  battlo line, picked up a Prussian helmet  with his saber, held it up high in the air  and said to us, "Forward, boys, and remember that a" bullet in the back is as  painful as in the chest, and it doesn't look  so nice!"   *  ���������Down the hill wo went liko the .wind  through a shower of' bullets and shells.  Our colonel was tho first to fall dead.  Two minutes later about two-thirds of the  regiment reached the top of the opposite  hill. Tho rest were on tho ground. We  were immediately engaged in a desperate  hand to hand fight���������a scene of hellish confusion. And there, amid the awful din  of battle, I heard dear Gojeski's death cry  as ho fell from his horse a few yards from  mo, and I saw a horrible gash on his fair  young head.  ^ I fought like a madman, seeing nothing  l*ut that dear mutilated face before my  eye's.

You can best observe the mosquito in'  action by letting ono settle undisturbed on  the back of your hand and waiting while  sho fills herself with your blood. You can  easily watch her doinjc so with a pocket  lens. Like the old lady in "Pickwick,"  she is soon *' swelling wisibly." She gorges  herself with blood, indeed, which she  straightway digests, assimilates and converts into three hundred eggs. But if  while she is sucking you gently and unobtrusively tighten the skin of your, hand by  clinching your fist hard you will find that  sh^ cannot, any longer withdraw her,man  diules. They are caught fast in your flesh  by their own harpoonlike teeth, and there  she must stop accordingly till you choose  to release her. If you then kill her in tho  usual manner by a smart slap of tho hand,  you will see that she is literally full of  blood, having sucked a good drop of it.  The humming sound itself by which the  mosquito announces her approaching visit  is produced in two distinct manners. Tho  deeper notes which go to mako up her  droning song aro due to the rapid vibration of tho female insect's wings as she  flics, but tho higher and shriller notes' of  tho, complex melody are duo to special  stridulating organs situated like littlo  drums on the openings of tho air tubes.

"���������-Washington Star.  One of the Peculiar Methods Adopted by  the Natives.  In capturing monkeys it is said that  their curiosity is tho thing that makes  them an easy prey. Nearly all of the mon-  ., keys that \ye see in this country come,from  Gornona, a littlo village situated a short  distance from tho Panama railroad.,  The, inhabitants of this district are  "mostly native negroes, for few white men  ��������� could bcar^thc climate. The whole region  is marshy and covered with tropical vegetation. At night there arises a thick vapor  laden with fever, which hangs over the  woods like a cloud.  W .This region of  woods isrthe��������� paradise of  the monkeys.'    They travel in troops, led  'by* ah older monkey.    When the people roj,  ceivo   information, that   the   "traveling  monkey, troops" are near the village, they  go to the woods iu crowds to chase them.  ^    Their- plan  is very simple.    They cut a  hole in a cocbanut largo enough for a'  monkey's paw to enter. .  Tho nut is then  'hollowed  out,   and a'picco of   sugar  is  ���������placed in it.  A piece of string is then fastened to it, and it  is placed  in tho road of  tho approaching monkeys.  It is well knowTn that monkeys are very  inquisitive. When they seo tho cocoanut  in the grass, they hurry to examine it. It  does not take them long to find out that  the inner part contains a piece of sugar.  One of the boldest and greediest sticks a  paw into the nut to get the sugar and  grasps it as firmly as he can. But his fist  is so large that he cannot draw it out of  the holo again with the sugar, to which he  holds fast, cost what it may.  The natives now pull the string until  nut and monkey arrive in the vicinity of  thoir ambuscade. In the meantime the  other monkeys wonder what is the matter  with their comrade. They hurry to see  where he is being pulled to with his paw  in tho cocoanut. They crowd around him,  chattering and gesticulating, and the natives, who have a large net ready, cast it  over them, and beforo they know it all are  prisoners. They are sold to the employees  of tho Panama railroad and reach the  North American markets through commercial dealers.���������Philadelphia Times.  Why He Holds Back.
