It   is   understood  the members of the cabinet favored a  dissolution  ol  parliament and an appeal to the electorate.   Should this  couisc  be  decided  upon,   a general election'will lake place early ^in     the  new  year.      it  is thought this decision  will  be. made,  as  it  is the gen-  eial      impression   that   the  Liberals  would decline to form a government  before a general election.  ���������.������:���������  London,  Nov.

Ru-  liiuis regarding uie resignation of tho  eaLmet, and thc diss nuuon of parliament,   haie     toeen     thick  for  three  ���������' nontiis     past  but when two of the  leading government organs today sug  gested  the iruuicdiato  resignation  of  thc  ricmiir,   on   account  of   unmentionable* breeches of the Unionist party over the fiscal question,  the ''suggestion"  was   looked  upon  as  having  been inspired by Mr. Balfour himself.  Thisi was strengthened  by  thc  knowledge that prior to the publication of  the  editorials   Mr.   Balfour   met certain influential  poisons at his official  residence  m   Downing  street.     These  two  fa,cts   when coupled   led   to   thc  belief that thc Pr-emicr had intimated  at the conference'his'intention to resign and as he just returned  from    a.  visit to  Kurg     Edward at Windsor  Castle, it t������m- vHr-.-f.vftt: _et rlis Majesty hid  been  informed of Mr.   Bai-  foui's  intention      to  lesign.   Beyond  tins, however,  there is not the slight  est     official-confirmation'of'the report.  AH politica,'  interest centre^ 'n the  cabinet meeting  to be held toinoirow  ab   which  it is understood   the  situation will be discussed.   Some ,weii iri-  re-  wouhl  the  verdict of the people became known.  The Liberal  papers  point out     that  while Mr.  Balfour   may  attempt this  "tactical, move"  they-arc conh'flcnt  it  will fail on  every' sue,  ;>nd that,  therefore,  the, dissolution  of parliament  ' is ' bclieived to be* imminent.  There is  no thought,  however,  that  a political    campaign   will fee   forced  prior     to the beginning of the year  with elections somewhere about  the  end of  January.  The Associated  Press ^understands  that forces have teen at work inside  the party for some      time to   bring  about   tbe     present   situation.    One  prominent Unionist recently wrote to  the Premier, asking' whether it would  be disloyal if he introduced eai ly in  the n-3xt  session, a resolution bringing the  whole fiscal ..question square-.  ly  before  the House.   He told'    the  Premier that,the Unionists "got tired  of being twitted concerning their attitude on the fiscal question, in   the  last' term of  parliament,   where they  repeatedly declined  to take pait   in  the dcbaUs or   divisions , in deference  to the wishes of Mr. Balfour.     The  Premier's reply   was   not  given out,  but the Associated,Press understand*;  that in  any event the Unionists     in  tended to push such a resolution, whuiY  they believed it would mean the defeat of the movement.  Tins     morning's paPers ars unanimous in   their  belief  tliat  thc meeting of the cabinet  today  will result  in the resignation of     Premier i!al-  four.   'lhe speech of Sir Henry Cam-  pbcll-Bannerman  at  Sterling is.  the  subject   cf much comment  owing  to  his downright  adoption of Home Rule  for Iicland as a plank of thc Liberal  platform.

The survey was  made in tbe summer of 1853.

The Virago.Rock in Porlicr Pass dries at a very low tide.  During   her  commission   on       this  station," ISa'J, war  with  Russia  was  declared  by  Great' Britain,  and    the  Virago was one of "the combined British and  French  fleet  that made  the  unsuccessful attempt to capture  Pc-  tropaidovski  in   August  of that year.

Christmas in Mexico is not tho typical Christmas of cold and snow rnd
Ice, but one of bright, warm sunsbUe,
cloudless blue skies, flowers in profusion, trees in full foliage and a life of
out of doom.
At least a week before Christmas in
the principal streets of Mexico niche*
are erected from sidewalk to sidewalk,
���estoontil with wreaths of flowers arid
bunting in the national colors���rea,
white and green. Under the arches
booths are erected, and every toy manufactured in Mexico is on sale.
In every Mexican house great preparations are made for what is called
the "pinata." Every ��� chird begs and
