GETTING CAUTIOUS.
London, Oct. 21.���The morning
apers have cooled down to an oxceed-
ngly cautions and conservative tone
1 dealing with the Fashoda qnes-
lon, apparently realizing thnt i< the
nlil ic on both sides of the channel is
eated to  the danger point.    There is
i marked effort to avoid nu offensive
ine. The Times says: Sir Micheal
,icks lli'iii'li has gone some way to
ersunde our neighbors that we really
tenn what we say. The time has
^me when it is absolutely necessary
expel French dreams on this suli-
���ct, unless very dangerous consciences aro to result, but the chancel-
r of the exchequer might havo per-
inned the operation more dexterously.
The Daily News, whioh voices the
moral feeling, says tho country is de-
rmined to maintain its rights, but
sere is no occasion to provoke onr
oponeuts or to add fuel to the con-
aversy.
J The Trafalgar celebration falling to-
liy is n particularly unfortunate co-
licidence and may have just the
Yoct   of   adding   the fuel which   the
Iaily News deprecates, if any warm
ooded patriots take advantage of the
casion to get up n Fashoda demon -
rat ton,

Toronto, Oct. 20.���There is a pretty
well accredited rumor afloat in Mon-
troiil to the effect that Lord Strathoona
will soon resign the high commission-
ership and will be succeeded by Sir
Richard Cartwright. Many beilove
the story, although it is not felt that
the change will take place before the
end of the coming session of parliament. It docs not follow, however,
that Lord Strathcona will return to
Canada, should he decide to vacate
the position.

DEID OF HEART DISEASE.
Verdiot ofthe Coroner's Jury at the Inquest
on the Body of E- Vinoenzo, Who
Died Wednesday Morning
Thc inquest to inquire into the
death of E. Vinecnzo, who died suddenly ou Wednesday morning at the
Kootenay hotel was held yesterday afternoon in the fire hall hy Coroner Dr.
Arthur. The following jury were em-
panneled: John McAlinan, foreman;
J. L. Vanstone, W. MoCandlish, Clifford Louden, Phil Roy and Steve Hawkins.
The flrst witness called was D. Mag-
lio, day bartender at the Kootenay
hotel, whose evidence in the main corroborated the facts of the case ns given
in yesterday morning's Miner. He
flrst saw the deceased at Brooklyn
about two weeks ago. He said ho was
ill aud tried to get into the railway
hospital there, but the doctors said he
was not sick enough. Vincenzo came
to the Kootenay hotel on Monday and
np to the time of his death slept most
of the time in a chair iu the barroom.
He did not nsk for a bed but took several meals, for which he paid. Witness
told him tbat if he were sick he ought
to see a doctor, to which deceased replied that he had not money enough
to pay n doctor, and nlso that he
wnn ted to go to New York. Witness
saw him sitting in the chair shortly
after six o'clock on Wednesday morn
ing, when ho said ho "as feeling bet
ter. About 8 :80 he was noticed to be
breathing heavily and on being aroused
fell on the floor dead. The deceased
conld not speak English.
Policeman W. J. Thompson said
that he was sent for from the Kootenay hotel about 9 o'clock on Wednesday morning. Upon arrival he found
the body of the deceased lying on the
floor. He searched the body and fonnd
an Italian passport 10 years old, and
in a handkerchief tied around the
right leg found eight $10 bills nnd one
|5 bill.
Dr. G. A. B. Hull, testified to having made a post mortem examination
on the remains and having found that
the heart was greatly enlarged and
that the kidneys wore grently^diseased.
In his opinion the cause of death was
heart disease.
The jury returned a verdict iu accordance with the doctor's evidence,
that tho deceased came to his death
from -heart disease.
MY LADY'S DICTUM.
|iy Their  Excellencies  Wonld  Not
Patrouizo a Theater Opening.
iToronto, Oct. 20.���The World's Mon -
fal correspondent sends the following
)ipatch to   his  journal:   The gover-
general  of Canada does not like
riot girls nnd   for   this reason Mould society is greatly depressed.   All

of  November 7,   amid  a dazzling

CONSERVATIVE ELECTED.
London, Oct. 20.���Hon. Arthur
Stanley, third secretary to the British
agency in Egypt, was yesterday elected to parliament to fill the seat for the
Ormiskir division of Lancashire, mnde
vacant by the doath of Sir Arthur For-
wood, conservative. Mr. Stanley is
also a conservative and; is the fourth
son of the Earl of Derby.
Manzanillo, Oct. 20.���Colonel
.Sanchez Parron, the former Spanish
commander here, told the correspondent of the Associated Press before
finally leaving Manzanillo en route for
Spain, that, in some respect, the loss
of her colonies wonld not prove an unmitigated evil. "Hereafter," said
Colonel Parron, "the youth and
strength of the country will uot have
to be given up to the extent of 90 per
cent of the whole for military  service
pestilential climates. The death
rate will decrease so that the manhood
of Spain will be enhanced and new
commercfi will make the land rich, so
that in the course of the next century
Spain will be once more a colonial
power." ���
The Cuban insurrection sprang
up", said Colonel Parron, "through
flu! kindness of Spain and the efforts
of a few foreign renegades like Gomez and the agitators, who inflamed
a lot of crazy ex-slaves and mal-cou-
tents such as can be found in any
country, but for whom in Cuba this
was a good prospect of living in one of
the richest countries on the face of the
globe, without any work and without mnch fighting. Moreover, as a
rule, the revolutionists were in absolutely impregnable positions. Still, if
as many Spanish soldiers had been
killed by the Cubans as was represented hy the American press, we would
have lost more men than we ever had
on the island, but, thank God, we
still have a few thousand left.
SPANIARDS DISCOURAGED.
London, Oct. 21.���The Paris correspondent of the Times says, I had a
visit on Thursday from a great Spanish personage, who seems to have been
commissioned to ascertain the trend of
public opinion on the negotiations here.
He appeared much depressed. He has
found great and general sympathy with
Spain, but hns been unable to discover any possibility of obtaining
moral support against the American
delegates, who are inflexible in their
demands, and with much polish of
form have hitherto categorically refused to make the slightest concession ou any of the instructions received by them. The friend who called
told me he bad fouud his countrymen
much discouraged. "Being convinced
that we are in your hands, you are
the victors. We for once committed
the folly of going to war with yon because you left us no time to avoid
it, because you treated us in such a
way that even nt the risk of suicide
we were bound to plunge into war,
though the result of it was evident to
ns. But we will not commit the fresh
folly of recommencing war in any
form. We are, therefore, at yonr
mercy. We shall submit to your dictates aud shall leave the world to
judge of these dictates; but no human
force will compel us to susoribe to
them and we shall not subscribe.
This is what our delegation ought to
say to the Americans on this Cuban
question. As for the other points,
they will wait to hear what they are. "
ANARCHY IN THE PHILIPPINES.
Manila, Oct. 20.���Well authenticated reports have renched here of a
terrible state of anarchy in the southern Philippines. The Spaniards there
are cooped up in the principal towns.
The Americans continue capturing the
rebel vessels as thoy arrive at Cavite.
Two have been captured this week.
CABLE   NOT CUT.
London, Oct. 21.���The oastern telegraph company says there is no foundation for the report circulated in the
United States, thnt the cable between
Manila and Hong Kong has been cut
by Admiral Dewey. The cable is
working this morning.
THE BUBONIC PLAGUE.
San Francisco, Oct. 20.���J. Franklin Brown, the hypnotist, Known a'.l
over this country and in England for
his performances in mind reading died
today at the Geman hospital here.
He tried a few months ago to hypno-
ise a lion at the Chutes iu this city
nnd the beast resented his familiarity
by biting him on the head. The
wound seeemed trifling, but blood
poisoning supervened. He was kept
in a hospital for some weeks and was
Anally discharged as cured. A few
days ago he scratched his hand, blood
pensioning set in and he died.
A KLONDIKER ROBBED.
His Valise, Containing $17,500, Stoleu
From a Train.
San Francisco, Cal., Oct. 20.���
Charles B. Montague, who has just
returned from the Klondike and is
now n guest at the Palace Hotel in this
city, was robbed of 70 pounds of gold
dust valued at $17,500 on a train coming from Portland. Montague had all
his treasure iu one valise which he
kept concealed in the section of the
Pullman car occupied by his wife and
himself. As the train approached
Mount Shasta, Montague and his wife
went to the plaform to view the scenery. When the train arrived at the
next station, the valise * was found to
be missing and no clue to the thief has
been found.

A FATAL TRIAL TRIP.
Astoria, Ore., Oct. 20.���Thetorpedo
boat Davis, which stnrted ou its official trial trip today, was disabled by
the bursting a of a number of boiler
tubes. Eight of the crew were badly
scalded, and three of them died soon after reaching here. Lnte tonight fonr
more injured men died, making the
total deaths seven.
The new addition to the Nelson public school will be completed in about
three weeks and is expected *�� be
ready for opening about November 15.
It is 84 feet by 28 feet, two stories
high with large baiement. On the
first floor, at the entrance there is a large
court 22x26 ft. in which is a double
stairway leading to the upper floor
and a double stairway to the basement.
On this floor there are two class rooms
26x84. capable of seating 60 pupils
each, six cloak rooms and a teachers'
room. On the second floor thore ore
two class rooms of the same size as
tliose on the first floor, fonr clonk
rooms and a teachers' room. The
basement contains two large playrooms, one for boys and one for
girls, furnace room, boys' and] girls'
lavatories closets, etc., completely
shut off from ench other. The closets
are provided with automatic flushing
apparatus, to flush every fifteen minutes. In the class rooms all the wall
space, exclusive^of windows and doors
will be covered with blackboard. The
seating is being so arranged thnt
light will be admitted from large windows on the left and at the rear of the
pupils. The ceilings are 14 feet high
and the regulation amount of air and
floor space has been provided for each
pupil.
The building as it now stands presents n rather unfinished nppearauce
but as soon as necessity arises the old
building will be remodelled to agree
with the new part now nearing completion, and the completed building
will be an ornament to the city. The
square selected for a school site is one
of the best in Nelson being high and
dry and affording ample playground
for the punils. Five teachers will be
employed after the opening of the new
school, and the staff are said to he
well qualified for the work they have
in hand,.
The new building wns constructed
under the supervision of Ewart &
Carrie, architects. W. Conuoll was
the contractor and the Lawrence Hardware company are putting in the
plumbing. Tho cost will be about
$5,500.
ESTERHAZY TO SUE.
Brockville, Oct. 20.���A fiendish attempt at train wrecking took place
on Tuesday evening on the Grand
Trunk a short distance west of Brockville and but for the successful working of the air brakes many lives wonld
have beon lost. The train was the
Toronto express, due here at 10.80 p.
in. Many Brockville people were on
board returning from tho consecration
ceremonies at Kingston. Just as the
train reached a point half way between Lyn village and Brockville
a sudden shock was experienced. The
engineer, John Kain, quickly applied
the air brakes and brought the train
to a standstill in a few seconds. Then
investigation showed a now steel rail
of heavy pattern, twisted and bont iuto the form of n "V" lying on one side
of and still partly on the track. Tho
crossing planks wero torn out, bnt
the engine had remained ou the track
and averted a terrible accident. Tracks
visible iu tho sand showed the work
apparently to be that of one man. Local trainmen say that similar attempts
was made against the same traiii a
few nights ago and are inclined to be:
lieve the would-be train wrecker is
some ono who has been put off the
traiii and has a 'frv\~V��(;; : gainst the
crew.

would appear that what the Miner
wants is a government assay oflice
where men cau have thoir ores tested,
and not a school of mines with college courses and curriculum, where
young men will study for degrees. Of
necessity such an institution, when
all the details shall have been settled,
will be located iu Nelson as the official
aud intellectual centre of Southern
British .Columbia, near whioh nil
kinds of mines can be fouud, nnd the
government assay office can go to
Rossland without the least objection
from this part of the couutry. Bnt
Rossland should try to curb its propensity to claim everything as sacrificial offerings to its undoubted greatness.

�� ARTHUR R. SHERWOOD, AG'T. :
Mr. Robert Jaffray, of Toronto
president of tho Globe printing company of Toronto and director of the
Crow's Nest Pass Coal company, spent
yesterday in the city. He gave most
gratifying accounts of the progress of
work in the coal fields, whence unlimited quantities of coke will come as
soon as the railway is prepared to
carry the commodity. It is understood that the entire supply of the
Comox coke ovens has been contracted
for in the United States and that in a
short time no supply from that source
for Kootenay smelters need be looked
for. In view of this impending stoppage of necessary fuel form one source,
it is gratifying to know to that the
Crow's Nest company will be able to
more than meet the demand and that
if there should be any cessation of
work at the Hall and their smelteis
through lack of coke it will be of short
duration.
There are demands from all quarters
for supplies of coal. The pa*i compauy
of Spokane is desirious of filling its
retorts trom the Crow's Nest Pass,
being willing to tako a large quanity
weekly. Considering the many ordeis
which have to be met, it will be impossible to doal with the Spokane proposition at present. The intention is
to first ttrmly ' establish the business
in British Columbia bofore turning to
the foregiu market, which cau wait
its turn for supplies. Besides, while
it would bo eextremolv difficult just
now to mako arrangements for transportation that would admit of sending coal expeditiously and profitably
to Spokano, no obstacles whatever
present themselves to easy delivery of
fnel iu all the principle points which
the C. P. R. system touches in British Columbia. Probably wheu traffic
is opened with the Spokane market,
the route by Bonner's Forry will bo
chosen, the coal being floated from
Kuskonook to that point. As to Nel-
Bon, Trail and Rossland and other
smelting and manufacturing points now
in existence or likely to spring up, they
will have easy communication with
the coal fields, the proximity of which
decides tho question of choap fuel for
the Kootenay for many years to come.
WILL THERE BE WAR?
Despatches from Franoe show that
the nctivity at the naval depot of
Toulon continues and there are indications that the French are iu earnest
in their preparations for war. The Lon-
on press realizes this and according to
advices from there is becoming more
subdued in their referrences to the
Fashoda incident. It may be that
Franco will grasp the opportunity of
engaging in a foreign war to relieve
the domestic siuation, conjested with
matters extremely hazardous to the
existence of the republic and the re
pu tai ton of the army. With Franoe
alone to deal with Great Britain
wonld make a short work of smashing
that nation, but it is difficult to say
whord hostilities once begnn wonld
end. Should Frauce be so suicidal as
to embark in the game alone, she
would but invite the fate that Spain
called dowu when she braved American hostility.
That Great Britain would fight ov er
the Fashoda affair there is every reason to believe. Lord Salisbury has
taken a decided stand and he has it
united people at his back, the liberal
leaders having approved of his attitude. France must comply with British demands or fight, and the next
few days may usher in a time of trouble such as there public hns not known
since the early seventies.

ROSSLAND'S AMBITION.
The Rossland Miner,enjoying sources
of information altogether cloiod to the
uninitiated, sees in the trend of affairs
nt the present time a disposition to
slight the importance of that interesting town nnd establish the provincial school of mines at Nelsou. Not content with being the greatest on earth,
not content with having in its midst
the richest mines iu the world, with
being tho headquarters of tho B. A.
C. and tho sauntering placo of that
distinguished Canadian, Hon. Charlos
Mackintosh, Rossland's consuming
desire is for something more. A
short time ago the Miner expressed
a longing to grasp the drossed hoof
monopoly from Mr. Burns, suggesting
that this would bo an easy thing to
do with $100,000 capital, and now that
uneasy journal deplores in deep dejection the perversity of men iu continuing to regard the city of Nelson as the
proper seat of a school of mines, notwithstanding the attractiveness of
Rossland as a cultured center of art
aud industry. There are, says
Rossland Miner, 10,000 of a population I
in and around that city whoso yearn- |
ing for scientific instruction can only
be satisfied with a scliool of mines iu
that busy mnrt of stocks and shares.
The  inference   to   be   drawn   from ;
what the Rossland Miner says is  that
these   ten thousand   eager souls wonld j
imniedateily    become pupils   at   tha
TO BUY OUT THE SEALERS.
It is Believed That U. S. Will End the
Difficulty   in  This Way.
San Francisco,   Oct. 20.���It is   generally believed in   shipping   circles  of
San Francisco that   the United  States
government will settle the question of
tho   clnins  of   the   Canadian   sealers
jby purchasing the entire fleet of   sealing vessels  making their headquarters
! at Victoria.    Captain Thayer   the rep-
j resentative   of   the American   Lloyds,
; has gone to Victoria, and it is said on
'good authority that he   will   be   com-
] missioned by the   government   to   ap-
1 praise the  value  of the vessels of  the
j Victoria fleet, with the idea of possible
I purchase of the vessels  by the government.
OAPT. THAYER'S MISSION.
Washington, Oct. 20.��� Inquiry  here
I develops the   fact that the mission   at
I Victoria   of   Capt. Thayer  has   been
j misunderstood.    Instead of going there
j to appraise the value  of   the  Behring
! sea fleet with a view   to the   purchase
S of the vessels   by   tho  United   States
I government the real object of his mis-
] siou is to   be   found   in the following
i statement:   Questions have  arisen   as
j to the value of the interests that would
! be destroyed by the abolition of pelagic
I sealing aiid itis   quite   probnble   that
I tho experts may have  beeu directed to
'ascertain the facts with n view to pre-
I venting   any   excessive   claims  being
lodged by a party in its interest.   It is
improbable that onr government should
contemplate   the purchase   of   such   a
fleet.

A Crowded Audience Assemble in the
Presbyterian Church.
A very large audience of the lovers
of music came to hear Mr. Durward
Lely at the Preabyteriau ohnrch last
night, prncticallly every seat in the
building being sold.
Mr. Lely sang a selection of songs
calculated to please the most exacting
tnstea, oompriaiug as thoy did an nria
from Balfe's Maritana, French, German, English, Irish and Scotch songs.
Perhaps Mr. Lely was heard at his
best in Tosti's "La Serenata," a song
which gave full scope to the play of
liis fine tenor.
Mr. Lely sang several Scotch songs
by special request among them being,
"O'a the airts the winds can blaw,"
"the Laird o' Cockpen" and "The
Bonnie Banks o' Loch Lomond."
Among the Irish and English songs
"Savourneen Deelish" and "By the
Fountain," wore posaibly the beat received.
Never before, probably, ha8 Nelson
had the opportunity of listening to a
tenor voice like Mr. Lely's, whioh
is remarkable for ita compas8, purity
nnd the complete control exercised over
it by tho singer. Mr. Lely interspersed his songs with sundry, whimsical anecdotes, full of characteristic
Scottish humor, nnd whioh were
thoroughly appreciated by the large
audieuce. Mr. Lely was tastefully
and accurately accompanied by his
handsome wife, who opened both parts
of the programme witli piano solos.
Mr. and Mrs. Durward Lely leave on
thia morning's train for; |Rossland,

COAST DEFENCES.
Winnipeg. Oct. 20.���General Seymour, commander-iu-chief in Canada
has returned from British Columbia.
Ho said that ho had not found everything satisfactory, no official ever did ;
but he was nevertheless well pleased
with the progress made with the work
of strengthening the almost impregnable fortifications.
"Esquimalt nnd Halifax," said
Lord Seymour, "are the two portions
of my command. They are the coaling
stations for the Pacific aud Atlantic
squadrons respectively, and it is most
essential that the defences should be
kept thoroughly abreast of the times.''
ADOPTING AMERICAN METHODS
London,, Oct. 20.���New fire engines, constructed on the American
plan, are being experimented with
here and horses are being attached to
tho ladder wagons. The change is in
part due to recent newspaper criticisms of the autiqnated Loudon methods of reaching fires. Chemical engines, water towers, and hooks nnd
ladders are still nnknown in Loudon.
The Daily Mail, commenting on the
matter, said: "Many of the second
rate American cities have more efficient appliances for fighting fire than
the British metropolis."
