SPAIN MIY TEMPT
THE FATES AGAIN
Will Not Yield the Philippine Islands.
NEW MOVE IN THE GAME
It is Said Spain's Peaoe Commissioners at
Paris Havo Been Ordered to 1 esist
Amerioan  Demands-
Madrid, Nov. 11.���The newspapers
assert that the government of Spain
is sending instructions to its commit
sioners at Paris not to yield on the
question of Spanish sovereignty over
the Philippine Islands, which is asserted to be entirely outside of the protocol aud.it is added, the commissioners
are, therefore, not authorized to discus it. It is further asserted that the
Spanish government will declare that it
has not been authorized by the cortes
to negotiate tho cession of the Philippine islands.
The Liberal advices the Spanish
peace commissioners to leave Paris,
after lodging a protest against the demands of tbe Americans.
The Spanish newspapers are angiy
at the Marquis of Salisbury's speeoh
at the Guildhall banquet ou Wednesday night, which they declare to have
been merely a glorification of brute
strength and a denial of the rights
of the weaker.
INSURGENTS   STILL  FIGHTING.
London, Nov. 11.���Advices have
been recoived nt the offiice in this city
of tbe Philippine commercial company, saying that the insurgents have
taken the island of Negros one of the
Philippine groups, separated by narrow
channels from Panny aud Zebu, and
they are beseiging Iloilo, the capital of
the island.
A THRIVING INDUSTRY.
The Kootenay Oigar Company in New
Promises���Increasing   Output.
The Kootenny Cigar company are
now settled In their new premises In
the 0. W. West block at the comer of
Baker and Hall streets. Mr. T. J.
Sims, who recently purchased the bus
iness, arrived in Nelson about a
month ago from Jamaica, where he
had a great deal of experience in the
tobacco trade. His extended personal
acquaintenoe among tobacco growers
and dealers will enable him to at all
times secure the vory best stock.
Hitherto the business has beeu confined almost entirely to Nelsou, but
it is the intention of Mr. Sims to cover every point iu East and West Kootonay with his goods. The force of
workmen will shortly be increased to
five and the output is expocted to reach
30,000 per month.
The new premises consist of a large
front office, a work room and an ex-
oise warehouse on the flrst floor and
in the basement a bonded warehouse
and a storeroom for the raw tobacco
leaf, and are well suited for the purposes to whioh tliey bave been placed.
Every box of cigars sent out by the
company bears the blue label of tbe
Cigar Makers' union. The Royal Seid
and the Kootenay Belle, whioh are favorite oigars in Nelson are products
of tbe Kootenay Cigar faotory as well
as several choice lines of standard cigars.
A NARROW ESCAPE.
Exploding   Cartridges    Prevent    Mr.
Carmichael From Burning to Deatb.
Mr. J. R. Carmichael, a cousin of
Mr. N. Carmiohael, assistant assayer
at the Hall Mines, probably owes h;��
life, says the Victoria Colonist, to the
faot that there were a number of cartridges in the house, which exploded
when fire reached them. Otherwise
he would very possibly hi ve been
burned to death on  Monday morning.
Mr. Carmiohael, who resides at 101
Gorge road, had until Monday night a
neat little frame cottage out at Oor,
dava Bay, which twelve or thirteen
years ago he built for his own occupancy. Of late years be has been using it as a sununr residenceand shooting  lodge.   He  was   sleeping  in it
Sunday night and between three and
four o'olook in the morning was
rudely awakened by the repoits of a
number of cartridges. He jumped out
of bed and waB almost suffocated by
smoke. The front part of the honse
had by this time been pretty well
burned down and Mr. Carmiohael's
only means of esoape was through a
heavy glass window. He had no
time to more than partially dress
himself and being alone oould do
nothing to stay the progress of tbe
fire. The honse waa completely demolished and with it the furnishings,
which though including no costly articles would in bulk amount to considerable. The house was insured for
$1500.
Tbe origin of the Are is not known.
Mr. Carmiohael had had a fire in the
grate in the front part of the house
just before retiring but oannot trace
the conflagration to this. He says he
is a very sound sleeper and believes he
would have been badly burned had it
no been for the cartridges.

Sierra Leone, Weat Africa,
bring news of the hanging at Ewellu,
of 13 of the murderers of the American missionaries, members of the
United Brotherhood of. Christ, in the
Sherbro district of' Sierra Leone last
May. The massacre of the missionaries referred to in the foregoing grew
ont of the dissatisfaction of the natives witb the looal but tax. A fntim-
hci- of chiefs rebelled and the insurrection spread throughout the Sherbo dis
trict, where were the headquarters of
the missionaries, among them Mr. and
Mra. Cain and the Misses Archer,
Hatfield and Scheneok.. Several of the
missionaries, Mr. and Mrs. Burtner,
Mr. and Mrs. Minshall and Misses
Muller and Ward suooeeded, after terrible experiences, in reaching Free'
town, the capital of the British oolony
of Sierra Leoue. Miss Muller wat res
cued under the mott thrilling conditions. A number of the natives,
frightfully besmeared with the blood
of their earlier victims, had already
surrounded the mission honse where
she was and she owed her deliverance
to the arrival just in the nick of
time of a boat's crew from a British
warship.
A British expediton was despatched
to the saene of tbe uprising and the
cremated bodies of several of the nis-
sidnariea were recovered. The search
for Mra. Gain, who fled to the bosh at
the time of thn massacre, proved fruitless and it was oonolnded that die had
been killed. Native chiefs to the number of 100 were arrested by the British
authorities and placed on trial for
murder. It is probable that the 18 already executed were the prinoipal promoters of the rebellion.

Untimely Interference of Hib   Brother
Loses Sullivan the Fight.
New York, Nov.' 11.���Through the
unlooked-for impulsiveness and stupidity of his brother Jack, Dave Sullivan, the little Irish pugilist lost the
bout to George Dixon, the colored
featherweight champion tonight at
the Lennox Athletic club. For nine
rounds Dixon had the call. He was
Sullivan's master in nearly every instance, but in the tenth round more
than outpointed his adversary. A left
hand hook from Dixon oaught Sullivan
on the head and almost put Dave out of
business, but be held himself together
only to go to tbe floor near the ropes
from a push. This occurred very near
the end of tbe round and Jack Sullivan evidently thought that time was
up While Dave was trying to regain
bis feet, Jack jumped through the
ropes and then ran back again. A moment later just >s Dave stood erect,
Jack jumped into tbe ring again and
ran over to the referee shouting, as be
ran, "'Time is up; timo,is up," Jimmy Colville, of Boston, who "Was referee, looked at the impulsive young-
tster in amazement and then spoke to
the time keeper, who said: "Two
forty only',' and then Colville waved
his hands to tell everyone , the bont
was over. Sullivan could not understand what was np as Dixon made no
effort to go at him, and tben tbe
whole thing flashed on him. He appealed to the referee to let bim
continue, but Oolville's handa were
tied and nnder the rules he had no alternative. This sudden termination
of the fight was a disappointment to
the orowd aa Sullivan was not beaten
whon the fiasco occurred and would
undoubtedly have gone on for several
rounds, but Dixon had suoh an advantage at the time that there is no question that be would havo received tbe
decision if the bout bad gone the
limit.

and 913,000 has been refused for a corner lot in the business seotiou.   B uild-
ing operations are brisk, too,   on   private bouses,   many   substantial   residences ot handsome design   being   under way.    That   residents   are    using
tbeir means   to   house  themselves   in
more expensive homes is a strong   indication of the increased  prosperity of
the    place    Business   houses    report
steady and lucrative tr<tdo, out of town
orders   showing   continuous  increase,
the traffic into the Boundary   country,
born of tbe increased activity  in  that
district, having become a most important, ono to tbe wholesale establishments
of Nelson.    This new channel of trade
promises   to   be   a    most    profitable
one for this city as soon ta the railway
furnishes easy means   of   communication, but even as it   is  large   orders,
especially of hardware,  have   gone  to
Cascade Ci>y and Greenwood, notwithstanding   that   the   present   route   is
roundabout  and   difficult.    If   Nelson
can retain this trade when the Canadian Pacifio gives an all  rail route into
that region it will be a source of muoh
profit to the mercantile  houses of Nelson.    It is understood that the Crow's
Nest Pass railway will be opened for
trafflo, or  partial   trafflo, next   Week,
and as soon as business regulates itself
to the   new  route  Nelson   must   feel
the good effeots ot it.   Take the Situation of the citv as a whole  and  it is
most favorable to   growth   and expansion and tbere is uo reason  why   Nelson should   not   beoome   the   interior
'metropolis of British Columbia.    Socially it|is a bright and cultured centre,
commercially   is   is   the    entrepot  of
trade embracing the entire Slocan and
covering a wide  radius  round  about,
while it is in the middle of a  mining
country   tbat   must   before   long   engage   the   attention   of    the    world.
Nelson   haa    every   reason    to    hail
the  future  as   enfolding   everything
that it is good for a city to bave.
forces of destiny that are in the hands
of God are working to bring about
close relations between the two great
branobes of tbe Anglo-Saxon * race and
it is also noticeable thnt those in
otllce who act contrary to the trend
of those forces do not stay long in
power Mr. Cleveland passed out unnoticed aud shortly after Secretary
Sherman addressed his petulant and
offensive note to Salisbury be, too,
disappeared from political life.
But the most remarkable change has
taken plaoe in the attitude of the
Irish-Americans. At the time wben
the sucoess of Irish home rule threatened to dismember the empire, the
Amerioan press and Amerioan politicians made daily apotheosis ot the
Irish as an oppressed race making a
God-like struggle tor liberty from tbe
rule of a tyrant. In this view the
late Mr. Gladstone became to Americans th�� greatest living Englishman,
tho ugh it was plainly seen that espousal of the Irish home rule cause mined Mr. Gladstone's political life when
he was in the bright zenith of hia powers. Indeed, that great, but mistaken
man, may be said to have owed his
enforced retirement from pubic life to
his advocacy of ar cause manifestly
opposed to the triumphal march towards universal supremacy of the
Anglo-Saxon race, which must surely
oome, spite of all opposition.
The Irish agitation has subsided in
Amerioa and though Mr. Redmond
and his Galway cohorts may obeer
France on to war, their unpatriotic
and disloyal action will find but little
sympathy in Eritain or America.
The Irish are beginning, to see that
Britain has, after all, been their best
friend and we are sure tbat when the
day of trial comes of the nation to
which they belong, that their strong
arms will be found in tbe ranks of her
defenders, as they have been in the
past.
It is not, therefore, too optimistio to
discern in the ntar future i an Anglo-
Amerioan alliance that will bring the
race into a cohesive whole under the
beniliceuce of which all unfriendliness
will disappear und Americans, English, Scotch, Irish, Canadians. Australians and all who are of the great
confederacy, will serve shoulder to
shoulder under God for tbe good of
man, never forgetting that He prom -
ised his chosen people that until the
great catastrophe of the end ihey
should be borne up by everlasting
arms.
their respective parts. After the
play it was announced, to everybody's
satisfaction that "La Belle Marie,"
will be put on tonight. This is undoubtedly the finest play the Bittner
company have put on here; the .proof
of which is, tbat all who saw it before
are expressing their anxiety to aee it
again. The play at the matinee tor
ladies nnd children this afternoon will
be Uncle Josh.

WHAT EVENTS PORTEND.
ANGLO-SAXON   SUPREMACY.
The republicans having complete
oni roi at Washington, there ii reason to believe that the movement to
bring about more friendly relations
with Great Britain than have hitherto
existed will be greatly expedited. The
-change of feeling ou the part of the
two people whicli has ooenrred within
the past year is extraordinary when it
is considered that at one time not
very long ugo u vory bellicose spirit
towards Great Britain waB npoarentjin
the United .Suites. This was particularly noticeable at tbe time wben
Hon. Mr. Olney, ut tbe instigation
of President Cleveland, drafted the
very offensive Veniizueluu message
There was 11 certain section of the
American people that hoped that thut
message would have tbe result evidently desired by Mr. Cleveland, and
this section lauded Mr. Olney aa 1
brave and partiotic "statesman" who
was not afraid of Kngland. Bnt tbe
great bulk of tho people saw that
Mr. Cleveland bad made a very serious uiistuke. In three days after the
message United States securities
shrank in value $500,000,000. Hon
saw that if Great Britain should
choose to accept the challenge that Mr.
To the Editor of The Miner:
Sir���I read with great interest yonr
���ditorial on the imminent "drying
up" of the Turkish empire, its relation to the sure word of prophecy. Tbe
matter ia spoken of in Rev. XVI, 12,
as transpiring under the sixth vial,
now current. It reads as follows:
"And tbe sixth angel poured with his
vial on the great river Euphrates, and
tbe water thereof was dried up, that
the way of the kings of the east
might be prepared." The overthrow
of the Turkish power iB also treated
of in the book of Daniel (see ch. 11, v.
40) where it is referred to as "the
king of the south.''
"The kings of the east," or perhaps, more correctly, the kings of the
suns rising, are regarded by earnest
and intelligent students of prophecy,
as referring ���not so much to the Jews
as some think���although undonbtedly
they will be restored tn their land as
the scripture ot- truth abundantly
shows, and of which the Zionist
movement is uo dofabt a preliminary
step, bnt rather to the 'saints, who
are to possess not only the Sultan's
present possessions of Palestine, but
all tbe kingdoms under the whole heavens, (see 1 an. 8, 27, and Matt. 6, 6.)
So really Ibe events you refer to and
anticipate are nothing less than indications on the strength of holy writ,
that the coming of the Lord Jesus
Christ is at band to raise tbe dead,
aud set np on earth His kingdom of
blessedness and  peace.
Should the Moslem |power ''disappear, " as you say, "within the next
few months," many would note the
remarkable fact of ita existence of precisely 12-30 yeara, tbat is, to say, of
the prophetic poriod of "Timo, times
aud a half," this particular "abomination of desolation," having been sat
np at the capture of Jersulem by the
Caliph Omar in A. D. 637. Yours
truly, O. H. EVANS.

The title role in this play was taken

Mr. Bittner show how the native
shrewdness of Uncle Dan'I carried
him through the snares laid for him in
Boston. Ed Mitchell wns very clever

Dutch saloon keeper, and J. Wuldron
wns good as Russel Clay, Gertie's long
lost sailor lover. Two unadulterated
scoundrels, Sandy Mitchell and
Sheeney Mike, were most realistically
portrayed by W. J. Fredericks and
Chris Moran respectively.
Gertie, the girl who loses her lover
and father and is nearly entrapped into a marriage with Simon Briggs, was

TONY HOEEC.
In the tenement���ft great beehive of la-
lwrets tn tho Rue Delambre���*here Tony
Kobeo had occupied a room lor somo time,
everybody thought him a widower, and not
long one 'or his little boy, who lived with
him, wi barely 6. Neither father not
son, however, wore a band of crape on hat
or sleeve.
Very early every day Tony Kobec, who
was a compositor in a Latin quarter printing house, started out with little Adrian
drowsily lying over his shoulder, and lefl
him at a school io the neighborhood. Thl
day's work done, he camo after the little
man, and loading him by the hand, stopped at the butcher's and tho grocer's, filling the ohlld's basket with their dinner,
as a careful housewife would have done.
Then he returned and shut hliusell ln until the morrow.
The sympathizing women pitied thl
poor father, still under 40, good looking
and so sad, with his pale faco and black
beard sprinkled with gray. "He should
marry again," said they. "A nioo follow,
never drunk. Surely he would hnve na
trouble ln finding a good girl to care fol
him and his kid Have you noticed how
well cared for the little oue is? Not a spot
or a holo anywhore. Au orderly man,
that's easy to see, and it seems lie earai
bis 10 francs a day too."
It was thoir desire to know him. Ordinarily it la not difficult to be neighborly
In tenements, whero poople live with open
doors, but Tony had such an air of reservi
and so polite a way of bowing on the stain
that he intimidated them. Kvery Sunday
the father and son, neat as new pennies,
went out to walk. They were seen oft*n
in the museums and in the Jardln del
Hunt-en. They had beon observed, too, before dinner at the little cafe on the corner,
where Tony allowed himself a weekly
treat and drank an abslntho Klowly ln little sips, while Adrian, sitting by him on
the leather bench, looked at the illustrated
papers.
"No," said the janltresn, who was sentimental, "that widower will never marry.
Last Sunday we met him ln the Montpar-
nassa cemetery. Doubtless his wife li
burled there. It was sad to see him witb
Ms orphan beside him. He must hav��
adored bar. It la rare, but titers an some
like that���lnoonsolable."
Alas, yes I Tony Robec had loved hit
wife tenderly and was inconsolable over
her loss, but he was not a widower.
Very simple and unhappy his life bad
been.
A conscientious workman, but indlffir
ently gifted for the trade, It had been late
before he could earn a passable living, and
for this reason he had no thought of marrying until he was more than 80. He
should have mated with a sensible girl.
acquainted, like him. with hardship. Bul
love does not bother with " should*."
Tony lost his head over the pretty face
of a flower maker, 19 years old, good n<
doubt, but frivolous, with no thought be
yond dross, and able, moreover, to arm;
herself like a little princess with a few bil
of finery.
He had saved enough to start nicely I

Every evening on leaving bis prlntir

look almost a gentleman, waited on tl

Ona night on coming hoiMwMfc hi
boy. whon he had picked mp ln pausing,
Tony Robeo found a letter oa the mantelshelf. When he opened the envelops, Clementine's wedding ring fsll out. Ia ths
letter she said goodby to him and te his
son and asked their forgiveness.
Oh, romantic citizens of ths Jury, you
who always acquit the outraged hushahda,
who, seeing scarlet, kill their wives, saying lt ls a passional crime, how absurd
poor Tony must seem ln your eyes, even
despicable! He felt more grief than anger.
He wept a great deal, and when Adrian
���aid: "Where ls mammal Is she coming
home Boon)'" he passionately embraced his
son and replied, "I don't know."
Clementina had fled ln early May, nnd
In the July quarter Tony sold nearly all
his furniture to pay his debts and went to
Uve in the Rue Dolambre. It was thsrs
that he passsd his days so quietly and
worthily with his little boy and that every
one took him for a widower.
Late ln September the workman reoeived
a letter from his wife, four Incoherent
pages of despair, on which th* Ink wss diluted with tears. Her protector, a medical
student, had been gone five weeks on *
vacation. He was visiting Ms family ln
the south andhadocassd to write or give
sign of Ufa. She w*s abandoned, betrayed
ln her turn, she wko had betrayed, and
sho repented, begged, implored mercy.
Tbls hurt poor Tony oruelly, but be reassured, gentlemen of the Jury, snd let ths
poor man bars your esteem a moment. Hs
was proud and ssst no word to th* guilty
wife.
He did not hear from her again until
Christmas eva On this day for several
years he bad been in the habit of going
with his wife to loy a tiny bouquet of
fitozen violets, with a chilly rose among
them, on the grave of their little Felix,
the firstborn, whom they had buried at
Uo*to*rD**m.
s or ma nrst time Tony hud to mak* the
pilgrimage without her, accompanied only
by little Adrian, and in crossing the cemetery door under the leaden winter .sky Jio
suffered more thou ever at thd memory of
the fugitive.
"Whero is she?" he thought. ''What
has become of herr" .
On reaching Felix's tomb he stopped
surprised On the stone- then were'some
poor toys���a trumpet, a Jack ln the box
and a dog on a string. They seemed t*
have Just been Uld there, for they wer*
new, evidently bought that day. "Ah,
something to play with I" cried Adrian
Joyously. And the father saw a piece of
paper pinned to the toys, which hs bent
over and picked."P-    It road:
"For little Adrian, trom Ma brother
Felix In heaven."
Suddenly the boy rrsaitd close to him
and cried ln fright, "Matntnal" and there,
a few steps away, kneeling by some
cypresses, he saw a woman dnasvd lh a
poor, thin gown and shawl���oh, so pale���
with bruised, sunken sy**. and hands
clasped pleadingly.
Between you and me I do not b*llev��
that Tony Bobeo ever thought of him who
taught byword and oxampl* the pardon
of Injuries. Tony had no religion, but his
plebeian heart knew neither self love nor
rancor. After a shudder, caused less by
anger at the wrong don* Mm than -th*
tight of th* miserable plight of this much
loved wife, he softly pushed th* Httl* boy
toward her.
"Adrian," sold he, "kiss your mother."
She seised her child In a desperate em-
bnee and frantically kissed Ms hair with
a moan of Joy. Then, rising and turning
on her husband a look that begged, sks
murmured, "How g*od you ami"
He earn* near hor, nad with parched
mouth sold, almost ' harshly: * "Do aot
