Paris,      May  26.���������Baron   Alphonse  -de     Rothschild, head of the French  ..branch of  the banking house bearing  l.lie  name  of  Rothschild,   and  governor of the  Bank of France, died this  /irioriiiiig- at (>..'.0 from acute -bronehi-  ���������j'*s,  aggravated   by  gout'. .The eminent financier had been sinking slowly for ���������.many days  but there was   no  apprehension that his death was imminent..     .He  first   took   to his  bed  two weeks ago.  Several'''rallies gave  '���������promise'.-of his  recovery.  Two days  ago the Baron began  to fail  rapidly  and  his  condition  assumed   a     dis-  cjjiiicting form.    Although be kept up  an animated conversation  with members  of  his   family  and   the old  servants, the patient  became very weak  and last night entered upon a comatose state and passed .away peacefully   this .-morning  surrounded  by '  bis  family.  The      deceased   Baron   leaves'   two  children,-,'.Baron   Edouard  and  Baroness  Beatrix.    Me has two .surviving ���������_  brothers,   Baron   Gustav   and   Baron  Edmund.-   Baron   Gustav   has  a   son  Robert,  and. .-two daughters, one   of  whom 'married'. Sir   Edward  Sassoii,  a great friend of King Edward; and  the other .married   Baron Lamber  de  Rothschild,   of.  Brussels,   who     has  long.represented  the Rothschild's interests at  the capital and   who succeeds  Baron  Alphonse as  head     of  the Paris banking house.  The ��������� announcement  of   tbe  Baron's  death caused   widespread   regret,   for  besides his   position   in   tlie  financial  World,    Baron  Alphonse  was known  for bis  lavish charities,  one of    the  latest 'being tlie gift of $2,000,(100 for  the erection of workingmens'  homes.  The >hews 'of tlie Baron's death caused   a deep   impression  among   financiers generally.  . It .was said that his  death ��������� would    probia'bly momentarily  influence  the extensive  interests      in  which     thc house is concerned, hut  Ihat it would  not have a lasting" effect on  thc   markets.    The   deceased  will be succeeded as head of i the Paris   Banking- house  by  Baron Lamber  de  Rothschilds of  Brussels,      whose  business capacity has earned'him  a  world-wide reputation.  The burial  of  Baron  Alphonse  will .  be  most simple,   according   to     the   |  strict rule of the  Rothschild family', i  including      a plain    coffin      without  mourning   tributes.    The  funeral,   the  date of which has not yet been fixed,  will be the occasion of a notable tribute of respect.  A member of the French American  Banking Holise said: "Baron Alpho'ns  was the leading spirit of the Rothschilds in their relations with practically all the governments of Europe. Besides the collossal task of  financing the indemnity which France  paid to Germany after the Franco-  German war of 1870-71, lie actively  carried on relations with other gov'  ernmciils. In Italy these included  both Ihe gcivernment and the Vatican  finances. The house also has large  interests in Spain. It largely controls Austria's railroad development  and held considerable parts of all  tlie, old Russian issues, but the house  has not exercised a controlling interest in the new Russian loans.  The large industrial interests of Ihe  bouse iiij Russia include the petroleum  fields of Baku. It alsa lias had con-  siderable dealings with American financiers.  Baron       Alphonse   De   Rothschild,  who died  today,  was  Uie second son  of  Baron  James  De  Rothschild, having  succeeded   his   brother,   the   late  Baron  Edniond   .lames   De   Rothchild  as head   of   the   Paris   house.    Baron  Alphonse   was born   Feb.   .1st,   1827.  He  was ;a governor  of   the   bank   of  France, a member of the Academy of  Fine Arts.  a member  of  the  French  Institute,  arid commander of the Legion of Honor.  Only three Cases were Pre,  sented and None so  far Tried  1  One Case Only is put Over  Until [Next week  Monday  (Associated Press Despatches.)  There    were but three cases      to  come  before  the court when  the assizes   opened   yesterday,   with  Chief  Justice Hunter presiding.   These cases   were  Rex   vs.   Southin,   indecent  assault,  laid   over   from   last assize;  Rex.   vs.     Smith,   indecent   assault;  Rex vs.  Raines,  theft.  No hearings were held, no bill being found against Smith, and while  a true bill was' found against Raines  by the grand jury, the crown moved  to stay proceedings, owing to a daw  in the ease, and the prisoner was  discharged. The case against South-  in was not proceeded with owing to,  the illness of the prosecutrix, Miss  Alice Trumper, and the case was adjourned till Monday next.  The following grand jury was  sworn in shortly, after court opened  at two o'clock yesterday:  Jos. Dandle (foreman), Geo. A.  Fletcher, J. Fanning, Alex.. Henderson,, J. F. Doyle, Fred. Wagfdaff, T.  T. Buckle, .lolin Meakin, Win. Randle,  Alex. Anderson, Ed. Devlin, \V. C.  Scott, C. It. Masters.  The crown..prosecutor,,: Mr. II. D.  Ilelmckeii, K.C., of Victoria, then  addressed the court briefly and moved for the adjournment of (the South-  in case until the next 'assizes. He was  armed with a certificate from the attending physician, Dr. L. .1. O'Brien  that the prosecutrix was confined to  he i: bed and would ; not be able to  appear for at 'least1 three days.  Tlie defense, Mr. ��������� Southin not being  represented  by  counsel, objected  the     adjournment,      saying  ready  to      proceed   to  AGED BY TIRE  Broke out  in   the Cellar  at Late Hour Last  Night  Owing jto Good Service of  Fire Department it was  Soon (Extinguished  at  re-  POPb  WILL NOT SEND  A  SPECIAL   MISSION.  Rome,      May 2(1.���������The report that  the  pope,  will  send   a special  mission  to      the   marriage  of  Crown  Prince  Frederick      Willi am   is  not   correct,  such action  not lieing in accord with  the ens I oin   of  the   Holy   See.

Bail was fixed  two thousand   dollars,  the crown  fising Io permit the man to be    released   on      bis   own   recognizances.  Bail   was  furnished   by  a brother-in-  law of SouthinY.   The court then adjourned  to allow' the grand  jury  to  report.      It was not until '1.30 that  the  grand   jury   filed   into   the court  room,  returning a  true bill against  Raines,   but with   "no  bill"   marked  in the indictment against Smith. Mr.  Smith and his counsel, M. R. Simp,  son  of  Ladysmith,   immediately  re-*,  ceived most     hearty congratulations  on his discharge.  In  the Raines case,  prior to     the  court proceedings-to impanel a petit  jury to hear the case,  the crown attorney arose, and moved  that a stay  be taken, as  it had  been discovered  that  the chief  witness for the crown  was outside Canada ������������������and that,Ids dispositions   taken   before  the  committing magistrate had  not been signed  by  that gentleman, and that he feared     that, the indictment based upon  those     depositions   would   not  bold  good.   Mr.  F.  McB.   Young,  who appeared  for  the  defense,  did  not need  lo   press   Ibis   point,   as   the  justice  fully agreed  with  the  prosecuting attorney.   A stay   of  proceedings     was  entered  and      the  prisoner  was  discharged.    A -stay   in  this  case     amounts  practically  to  a surrender      of  Ihe case by  the.  prosecution.  The grand jury was then instructed to make its presentment at the  next silting of the court, on Monday  next, and the com:  till  that day at 2 p.m  The    residents of     Ladysmith bad  another little   fright last night,  fire  again being the     cause.   Shortly before twelve    o'clock  the clanging of  the fire bell awakened those: who had  retired for the night, and called the  fire brigade     to     their duties.   The  Portland    Hotel     was     going up in  smoke.   In a very     short lime after  the alarm   was sounded Chief Smith  bad his brigade at     the scene of the  fire, but it was fully a quarter of an  hour before     water could be brought  into   play on     the burning building.  Smoke was issuing in great volumes  from the roof   but no Hare Was seen  until the moment the water was turn  ed on,     when the bar room suddenly  became one mass of flames.   In a few  minutes under     the     mighty xow of  water the    flame in the.bar was extinguished and it     was clpar to the  by-standers that the brigade had tho  fire well under control and the quantity of smoke     issuing from various  parts of the building became less and  less:  -At, one time the alarm that the  fire had   broken     out in the kitchen  was given and the hose was speedily  taken through the passage and under  the'influence of the steady stream of  water fire   in that     apartment soon  vanished.  The firemen continued to pour a  steady flow of water on the hotel, although the fire was apparently extinguished. A few articles of furniture were carried out but that left  inside was badly'damaged bv water.  The hotel" in question stands in  <lo;c proximity to J. W. Wat-ion's  residence and had the flame got a  hold this place would have been in  great .danger, thc wind blowing the  smoke-directly over it. Fortunately  not the slightest-damagtr-was done to  it. ��������� '���������;/'     ��������� :;' , /  The fire is supposed ���������'to have originated in the cellar, the cause being  unknown.

Kishinieff,  May  23.���������In  an  official  investigation of one of the numerous  cases of' assault on  Jews  and students in the streets, it has been decided-: that  the assailants,   including  two., members;of the^noMlity and fire  burghers "exceeded their rights "by  stopping and  beating passersby.   All  of  them      were  sentenced   to  short  terms of imprisonment,  while     the  victim  of the assault who  defended  hi nisei f     with a revolver,  was fined  $12.50.

The  commission   recommends  the entire abolition of the so-called  minor state of siege,  as  a half-way  vexatious   measure  clothing  the  authorities   with  unnecessary   arbttary  power', and the substitution at times of great public stress of martial  law, so as to leave the cities either  in a normal condition with the civil  authorities in full  sway or entirely  under the control of the militia.'   o   DOINGS   IN THE DOMINION H i'.:.-K  Ottawa, May 25.���������The House was  in session most of the day.

They give way  at  tiie slightest     pressure      against  their    centre on     both  the railroad  and  the     Mandarine road.   The Chinese, explain the retirement is due to  tiouble among the reserves, some of  whom,  they     say,  are almost    in a  state  of revolt    because the govern-'  liienl has not kept its promise to "return  them ito Japan.   Ihe retirement  of the Japanese centre is' interpreted  by some of the Russian officers as a  postponement of Field; Marsnall Oya-  mas offensive" movement,  because of  the bad state of tic roads, but this  view is not shared by! all the.officers.

The  great difficulty is that many of the  properties are handicapped by the  owners not having means to do the  development work which the showings really deserve.  The mines of Vancouver Island and  the coast made a good showing during the past year, as the returns  from the Tyee smelter, at Ladysmith,  show.

KING   ICDWARD  AS  A PEACEMAKER.  It has been observed that kings  now a , days reign but do hot rule,  but whatever of truth there, may be  in such a saying, reigning monarclis  still exercise large influence for , ���������  good or ill upon the destinies of the Jj  people. , .-..������������������  The tact  and  graciousnessi of    the  ���������monarch.., who at tie'present  time  sits  upon  the  throne of the British  Empi re has  been largely responsible  for-.the.friendliness which is fast'developing. ������������������'������������������ fcHweeii;England and    her  hear neighjtinr across :the channel, andC  the  recent visit  of  King Edward to  President     Loubet,  and the cordial  welcome extended   to  him  by       the  French people will  do  much  to    cement the good-feelings  already     existing. ���������.;���������:���������'  The bonhomie of Britain's king  and his< wisdom and astuteness are  iii .striking contrast to -the swashbuckling hotheadeilness of his'brilliant nephew, who between his intermittent incursions into the regions of religious discussions seems  to delight in setting his friends and  foes by the ears. The G emmn ��������� Emperor in his "anxious. de;dre to main,  tain the peace of Europe" proclaims  in favor of "the mailed fist." lie is  reported the other day to have <le-  clarsd "that when he travelled the  world was troubled!" This may or  may not be a desirable reputation  for a monarch to attain,, alt hough it  would appear to be a serious men-'  ance.to the peace of the world.  King Edward's solicitude for the  welfare of his people has been shown  in many directions, -but in none  more than in the free-and easy  f('eiidliness with.-which he has moved about amongst the people of la  belle  France. c.  The visit of the formidable French |  fleet to Spithead which is to ' .take  place, in the near future will also go  along   way   towards   cementing     the  entente' cordiale  between   the      two  peoples whose past .history  for      a  thousand years-has  been, so-interwoven and whose future destinies     are  so much bound'up'with one another.  The  title of "Peacemaker,"  which  has been bestowed0 upon King     Edward,  will have been fully earned if  out;      of     the  better  understanding  which now obtains  between tlie two  nations there should arise a real aiid  permanent  friendship  between  Great  Britain and France.  ****t������**te*******^>A*i(������*MI'ieag'*t**#****eMt  Union  Brewing Co  NANAIMO,   B.
