London, Oct. 21.���The Speaker iu a
long article on the pence commission
says: The reluctance of America to
escape the burden of tbe Cuban debt
and at the same time the doctrine of
international law by which a debt incurred by a ruer binds his successors, rests noon some foundation.
It is monstrous thnt a tyrant should
be able to burden future generations,
simply because he is iu fltjjriwrlftn of
the material government. If investors felt that iu international law loans
incurred against the will of tbe people would not attach to the country
iu the event of a obauge of government, there wonld be less of tbat
monetary support of misgnvemmeut
which hns disgraced the high finance
of the nineteenth century. For 50
I years Spain has ruled Cuba in defiance
; of the will of the Cuban people, and
in spite of the constant protest o! the
United States. The cost of her military operations were met hy loans,
specially chargeable on Cuba, in tlie
first place, in order to punish the Cubans, and in the second place, in order to arrange for a cheap retreat in

SAUSBURYCONFERRING
H. W. Tarr & Co. The judge dismissed the charge, as it had not been
proved that the parties had anything
to do with the firm. In rendering
judgment the judge expressed the
opinion that it would be as hard to
stop speculation by legislation as it
would be to stop men from sleeping
)-oi talking. It was no more against
the law for a stockbroker to deal in
futures than for a farmer to sell in
March his future hay crop. The decision practically allows bucketsliops to
continue in business.

'In a word, the debt hns been
charged upon Onba largely with the
object of saddling it upon the United
States. The bondholders were encouraged to look to tho supposed doctrine
01 international law as part of tho security, while they knew they were
J lending to Spain against the will of
both Cubans nnd Americans. It is
Imped that the United States,   assutn-
ing sovereignty over Cuba, will refuse
o pay any part of the debt, except
be money used in the development
if the island, thereby setting a most
isoful precedent by which tyrants and
Innnciers will do well to take   noto. "
FROM EAST KOOTENAY.
T. G. Proctor, manager of the

from
Paris, Oct. 21.���A despatch to the
Temps from Loudon asserts that the
precise position regarding the Upper
Nilo question is this: Great Britain
having declared her claims on Fashoda, asked France to submit whatever
proposals she wished to make. M.
Delcasse, the French foreign minister,
replied plainly that France demanded
an outlet on the Nile, a reservation
being made concerning the geographical points to be determined upon.
Lord Salisbury, the British prime
minister, is now consulting his colleagues on the subject.
RUSSIA SEEKS  A LOAN.
Berlin, Oct. 21.���The St. Petersburg
correspondent of the Cologne Gazette,
in n despatch to that paper on the
political situation, says: "Here
also, interest in the Nile question is
rapidly increasing and Russia's conduct in this matter will conform to
the expectations formed in connection
with her alliance with France. "
According to the Gazette's correspondent the Russian finance minister,
noting in concert with Count Muravieff, minister of foreign affairs, has
attempted to raise a large loan in
Paris and n similar attempt will be
made ib BerhTT
IRISH CHEERS FOR FRANCE.
Dublin, Oot. 21.���Mr. Wm. Redmond, Pnrnellite member of parliament for East Clare, addressing a
home rule meeting here this afternoon, called for cheers for Major
Marchand, which were given with
great heartiness. Mr. Redmond
"The sympathy of Irishmen is
France."
READY TO MARCH.
Paris, Oct. 21.���The Temps
evening publishes a despatch
Nantes saying that the fourth battal-
liou of the infantry regiments comprising the 21st division, with headquarters at Nantes, have completed
tlieir equipment for wnr. Each man,
it is added, hasj received 120 rounds of
ammunition and his camp outfit and
the officers of all the four regiments
of that division hnve been supplied
with revolver cartridges. The division is now in readiuoss to march
whew ordered, and it is believed these
troops are intended for coast defence.
The defence of St. Lazare is also being organized.
BRITAIN WILL STAND   FIRM.
London, Oct. 21.���Government circles here are apparently satisfied that
the Fashoda question will not lead
to war. At the same time, the determination is reiterated not to budge
from the posiiton which the British
government bus taken up, no matter
what the outcome may be. It is said,
on good authority, thut the British
government has also determined not
to brook unreasonable delay. In the
event of France declining to evacuate, the Marchund party will be removed from that place, although it is
not expected that it will be necessary
to resort to such extremes.
THE FRENCH INFLAMED.
Paris, Oct. 22. ���A remarkable change
has como over French opinion on tiie
Fashoda question during the last 48
hours. The attitude of the public is
more inflamed and more defiant.
This is partly due to the tone of the
British press, but more to the threatening manner of the British chancellor of the exchequer, Sir Michael
Hicks Beach, which the Autorite calls
"a provocation that is almost a threat
of war.''
The municipal council of Paris is ab-
bused on all sides for exhorting; the
government to avert war. In government circles, the disposition seems to
be resist the British demands. It it
reported that the policy of France, as
definitely stated to Great Britain, includes the retention of Fashoda.

Londou, Oct. 21.���Extraordinary exhibitions of rowdyism have characterized the opeuing of the winter session
of the Scotch university. Principal
Story's inauguration address at the
University of Glasgow was interrupted
by great disorder on the part of the
students and eventually the principal
left the hall in disgust, without finishing his address. Professor S.iintsbury,
occupying the chair of English literature in the University of Edinburgh,
was similarly interrupted yesterday.
He made repeated appeals for ordor,
but despite his remonstrances, the disorder increased until it almost assumed
the oharacter of riot, when Professor
Saintsbury indignantly quitted the
hall. __

HELD FOR MURDER.
London, Oct*. 21.���The inquest over
the remains of Harold Frederic, the
newspaper correspondent and author,
who died suddenly on Wednesday
morning at Henley of heart disease,
was adjourned today until Wednesday
next. The evideuce presented was
somewhat sensational. A despatch
from London to the Asociated Press
on Thursday said it had been learned
that Mr; Frederic, previous to his
death, had been in the hands of
Christian Scientists and that a doctor
was only summoned to attend him a
few days before ho died.
During the inquest, today, Mr. Frederic's daughter, Ruth, said her father
did uot believe in doctors. Shefcdded
that it wns with his couseut, but under the influence of others., that Mrs.
Mills, a Christian Scientist, was*
summoned to attend him.
Kate Lyon, a member of the Frederic household testified that the deceased had asked her to call in Mrs.
Mills and the latter eume to the houso
aud oxpounded the system followed
by the Christian Scientists. On the
same day Mr. Frederic dismissed tl;e
doctors who had been iu attendance ou
him. Most of Mrs. Mills' treatment,
f.-.ntiuueif-nie v. * i-. . wad what was
known as "absent treatment." At
the request of the friends of the sick
mnn the doctors were again summoned
but deceased informed them that
when they had previously boen attending hiin he had not followed their
drections. Mr. John Stokes, Mr. Frederic's amanuensis, testified that he
had informed Kato Lyons she might
be charged with manslaughter if Mr.
Frederic died without receiving
medical troatinent.
Doctors Brown and Froidberger,
physicians who had attouded Mr.
Frederic said the deceased hud snffored
from rheumatic fever and that he was
paralyzed ou one side. His death, they
snid, was duo to syncope Both declared thoir belief that with proper
treatment the patient would have recovered. The inquest was adjourned
until Wednesday, in ordar to allow for
the attendance of Mrs. Mills.
REGARDING BUCKET SHOPS.

in Their Favor.
Montreal,   Oct.   21.���Judge

in the inquest over tho body of William. Walker, the prize fighter, killed
iu n fight at South Omaha by Andy
Dupont, last Monday night, returned
a verdict this afternoon, holding Dupont as principal and (thief of polico
Carroll of South Omaha, accessory to
the killing. The testimony shows
that Carroi had received money to nl-
low tho fight to proceed. Warrants in

THE ATHABASCA   COMPANY.
Hold Their First General   Meeting in
London,   Eng.
The first general (statutory) meeting of the Athabasca Gold Mines, limited, was held in Loudon England,
ou September 30. Tho company is
operating tho Athabasca group on
Morning mountain, 3% miles from
Nelson. An account of the operation
on which appeared in tho Miner of
September 20.
Tho report of tho manager, Mr. E.
Nelson Fell, was read to the shareholders showing what he had accomplished,
within the expenditure sot by the directors of the oompany. The report
was considered highly satisfactory and
a vote of thanks was tendered to Mr.
Nelson  Fell   by the  shareholders.
When tho Athabasca mines, limited,
took over the property on April 12 of
this yoar, Mr. Fell was informed that
thore wus available for development
purposes a fund of $50,000, and with
this ho was instructed to erect a 10-
Btamp mill and tramway and mnko
the balance go as far as possiblo in tho
development of the proporty. The
mill is now iu operation and the manager's report states that ho has sufflciont
high grade ore to keep it running foi
six months. The proximity of such a
rich miue, so well managed, to the city
of Nelson should have a beneficial effect
on the development of other properties
in the vicinity wliich hnvo as rich
showings as the Athabasca had when
the preseut company took over tho
proporty.

WHY NOT   INVESTIGATE.
put themselves to the trouble aud ex
pense of visiting the show. There is a
suspicion of bunco about the game not
in any way creditable to the proud city
of Spokane, wliich the Columbia valley has made great. But gratitude
is an unknown quantity. It may
once have existed bnt it has beeu a
long time dead. And Nelson meu and
women should spend tlieir money at
home, whore the face of a dollar is its
passport anywhere and disoeuuts do
not prevail.
Newspaper discussion will never
settle the question whether or not the
Yukon officials first sent into the
country by thc Dominion government
aud who have siuce been supeeeiled
by othors, were honest in their dealings with the public. Thia journal
takes no stock whatever in the stories of
disgruntled men coming dowu from
that region who attribute their non-
success iu gold getting to the machinations of the officials. Disappointed
men are prone to give any cause for
their ill-fortune but the right one, uud
as it has become common with some
to blame the officials for throwing obstacle* in the way of claim hunters,
this plaint has served many as a plaus
ible oue in explaining"', their failure to
secure riches where there is said to be
much of it. But allowing for all this,
there is evidence that officials staked
claims and there are seemingly well
founded charges of money paid for
informtion, and to get at the truth the
government should proceed with au
investigation. If the officials acted
honestly all tllrougji they have noth
ing to fear from an enquiry, but on
the contrary should court it as offering
a sure means of vindicating themselves
and sotting nt rest the stories that have
been so damaging to them. If, as the
papers say, there are no grounds
whatever for the charges, then uu investigation will hurt no one, but evidently nn investigation is what a portion of the press wants to prevent, the
reasons why probably being best
known to those concerned.
Her Excellency Lady Aberdeen seems
to have thought when her patronage
was asked for a performance of "The
Ballet Girl," in Montreal, that it was
one of those vulgar exhibitions in
high-light tightn which are said to so
charm the first row bi.ld-heads, so
she declinod on the plea that his excellency was not partial to exhibitions of that kind. Yet "The Ballot
Girl" is nn inoffensive show as shows
go. It would be interesting to hear
Aberdeen's opinion on the subject.
BASE INGRATITUDE.
The Seattle papers have brought
down so much gold dust from the Yukon that the placers of that region
must be well-nigh exhausted. 'It
would be n poor ship, indeed, hailing
from northern parts on which Seattle
reporters conld not find a million or
two, and we do not |kno\v which to
wonder nt* most, tho magnitude of the
cargoes or the magnificent imaginations of the newspapers.
Several Nelsou citizens who visited
the Spokane fruit fair return with
complaints against the shop keepers of
the American city, who refused to
accept Canadian silver or bills at par
in payment for purchase and demanded
discount rates. Prosperity has made
Spokane proud. Thoro was a time in
the life of that place when it was
glad to get any kind of Canadian
money in exchange for its goods;
when, indeed, it ranched out both
hands to grasp all the money Canadians could bring it without question
of discount or silver depreciation.
And not only into British Columbia
did it reach but out from Spokane
came those alluring mining propositions that drew the dollars from the
pockets of eastern Canada without
any dispute as to their parity with
the shifty dollar of the republic.
So having glutted itself with tho
money of Candians until it has be
come surfeited, it uow turns disdainfully on the friend it once gladly welcomed and says to tho Caudinu dollar "you are no good hore without a
bonus to cover the cost of exchange."
Thus do tho arrogant spurn tho ladder by which they climbedjto affluence
nnd paid off their mortgages.
We can suggest no remedy for Nelson
sufferers save to keep off Spokane
grass in future. It was real moan of
that city to have the fair advertised
for nothing in the Kootenay press,
and then tax our peoplo ton cents on
their good  sound  dollars  wheu  they

The London Times has been giving
some thought to the cost of gold production and hat, published considerable
correspondence on the subject. It is
estimated tbat 20,000 persons went into tho Yukon country at an estimated
cost for transportation, supplies, etc.,
of ��100 for each person, making a total expenditure of ��3.200,000. It is
doubtful if the year's product of gold
will amount to two-thirds this sum
when correct returns are made, and it
can be easily seen that the loss is
largely ou the side of the gold seekers.
This large sum put iuto permanent
mines in tbe Kootenay would have
insured profitable returns for years and
would have opened up properties that
would have an ever increasing value,
but tbo slow proct-sses of rock milling
must ever suffer in comparison with
the easy working of rich but limited
placer ground. Yet long after the
Klondike shall have been worked out,
the great quartz ledges of British Columbia, now scarcely uncovered, will
be adding to the wealth of the world
und enriching thousands who had
tho foresight to secure interests in
thom.
Thursday was the anniversary of
Trafalgar, yet the French kept right
on with their naval preparations at

warehouse now and next week we will have them on our shelves, disposable
at the same low prices as have always prevailed here and brought our name so
prominently before the careful buyer.
To the Private Families
We would say that our stock will be the finest and most complete in B. C. in the line of Fancy Groceries, Biscuits, Bottled
and Canned Goods.
To Close Bnying Mining Camps
We would say that our stock is larger than ever in our line.
See, our wnrerooms. A glance over this department will convince you that we are your money savor. Our prices are so
that we defy competition where full weight and honest measure
is considered.   Cull and get acquainted with us anyhow.

j Walkem   gave   judgment   ou the finding of the   jury   in   tho  Clabou-Scott
case, tried   in   tho   Supreme  court   a

} dee company on   consideration   of  re-
Iceiviug  one-half  of tho 60,000  shares

jiff, Clabon, bo paid tho value of the
26,000 shares at the time of tho trial,
(viz., 27 cents or a total of $0750 and
[costs of the action. This was based
I on the fact that tho shares had been

WOMEN'S COUNCIL OF CANADA.
Taking   up   the   Question of Cooking
Classes for Nelson.
A meeting of the Nelson branch of
the Women's Council of Canada was
held yesterday afternoon in the school
room of the Presbyterian church at
which the question of tho establishment of cooking classes for the ladies of
the city was discussed. Any ladies
who wish to join the classes are requested to send in their names to the
secretary Mrs. Day at as early a date
as possible so that the council mny
have an idea of the number before
sending for Mrs. Livingstone who will
be in charge of the classes to come.
The fees to be charged are $3 for {he
course of the lessons and 50 cents for
each single lesson, and the profits
will be devoted to the fund for the
proposed    public   library.
A public meeting of the Women's
Council is being arranged for next Saturday afternoon to which all are cordially invited. The members of the
Women's Council are hoping for the
co-operation not only of the ladies of
Nelson but also of the men, in their
efforts to establish a reading room and
library and hope beforo long to have
the institution in running order. They
wish it distinctly understoood that the
