Dewey Said to Have Fought
With the Rebels.
He Contradicts  Agoncillo's
With Dewey That the Fillippino* Should
Have Absolute Freedom in Ketum
For Their Assistance
Paris. In reply Admiral Sampson personally dietated a brief note stating
emphatically that December 1 would
be the positive date in which Spain's
rights, claims aud sovereignty in
the island of Cuba would cease to exist.
Londou, Oct. 19.���Major General
Wesley Merritt who has arrived here
from Paris, where he has been giving
the United States peace commissioners
the benefit of his observations as commander of tho Amoricau forcos at Manila, iu an interview with a representative of the Associated Press discredits
the statement attributed to Agoncillo,
tbe agent of Aguinaldo, in an interview
witb a Globe correspondent at Hong
Kong, previous to Agoncillo's departure for San Francisco, Washington and
Paris. Aguiualdo's agent is quoted
as declaring tbat the insurgents had a
formal agreement with Rear Admiral Dewey, whereby absolute freedom was promised tliem in return
for their assistance. General Merritt
said that from conversations which he
had with Admiral Dewey, he was
satisfied that no arrangement had
been entered into with the Philippine leaders.    The   general added :
"That if the Filippinos were allowed
independence now. it would result in
fighting betweeu tho leaders, which
would be more disastrous than auy revolution which has hitherto broken out.
Aguinaldo's "following is slim and
if there was an election today I do not
bolieve he would be president. "
The   thread   of    General   Merritt's
view or advice furnished to the United
States peace commission at Paris may
be gathered from the  following state
ments which he made today.    "While
some  of the Filippinos are able, I am
not acquainted with  any one of them,
who ig capable of governing.    I do not
believe the insurgents will   resist  the
Americans but there is oue  certainty,
they will never submit to being  ruled
by   the   Spaniards.    If America takes
possession of the Philippine islands it
! will result in a new era in the Philippines and in our  own  country.   The
islands are of immense strategic value,
navally  and commercially,   and  they
: could bo easily   defended.    My   study
I of tbe British colonies  has greatly in-
f terested mo.   They ought   to prove  a
valuable subject lesson   to   the United
1 States.   The   British    system    is  as
I perfect as any devisable.
Washington, Oct. 19. ���Admiral

Jnavy department, placed in command

A Brief Sketch of the Late Correspondent of the N. Y. Times.
London, Oct. 19.���Harold Frederic,
the well known writer and London
correspondent of the New York
Times, died this morning at Henley,
of heart disease. He had been ill for
gome time but recently was much improved in health. Mr. Frederic showed
symptoms of heart failure early yesterday morning.
Harold Frederic was born at Utica,
N. Y., on the 19th of August, 1856.
Ho was the son of Henry Deraotte
Frederic and came of Dutch, French
and New England ancestry. He was
educated iu the public school of Utica
until he had reached the age of 13.
He began work as a draughtsman, became a reporter in Utica in 1876, and
editor of the Utica Observer iu 1880
aud editor of the Albany Evening
Journal in 1882. In 1884 he went to
Europe for tbe New York Times and
did correspondence work for that paper uutil his death.
An Unconfirmed Report Omnes hy Way of
Madrid of Troublo With the
Natives  at Manila,
A|Party Fiom Toronto Arrives inthe Oity
Yesterday Evening Over the
Grow s Nest Pass Line
A party of Toronto capitalists con-
si tiug of Mr. Robert Jaffray, '^Senator
E. W. Cox and Messrs W. G. Jaffray
and Aaron Cox arrived in the city yesterday ovening by the steamer Nelson
aud are registered at the Hume.
To a Miner reporter Mr. Jaffray,
who is a director of, the Crow's Nest
Pass coal company, stated that the
party had' a vory pleasant trip over
the Crow's Nest Pass railway, the
journey from Cranbrook to Goat river
lauding being made on a construction
train. A regular passenger service
extends from Lethbridge to Cranbrook.
At the coal mines 50 coking ovens are
nearly completed and 50 more will be
built shortly. The "company expects
to be in a position to ship coko into
the Kootenay as soon as the railway
is in a position to handle it, probably
about Novomber 15. The output of the
mines at the present time is between
120 aud 150 tons per day, but the force
of men will in a short time be increased by the addition of 200 skilled
miners from Capb Breton. Mr. Jaffray
expressed his confidence that the coal
will greatly exceed the expectations of
the company both as to quality and
quantity. This is his third visit to
British Columbia and on every hand
he sees great advancement since his
visit in April last. This was particularly noticeable in Nolson in the general appearance of which ho sees a
marked change for the better.
Manitoba and the North West territories are also enjoying a year of great
prosperity. The party will spend today in the city.
London Oct. 20.���Madrid con
spondeut of the Times says: "Captain
Aunon, minister of marine, has received
a despatch from Manila announcing a
naval engagement between the Americans and the rebels in consequence of
Admiral Dewey forbidding the latter
to fly the rebel flag from their ships.
The despatch adds that there were
losses on both sides, but that the
Americans oaptnred the rebels' ships. "
The scene of tho engagement is
not stated, but it is supposed to have
been Manila bay.
for himself and colleagues to request a
postponement of any further conferences until Friday next A courteous
reply was returned by Secretary
Moore on behalf of the American commissioners, granting au extension
of the time for the next meeting as requested. While the deferring of the
conference for two days in not in itself
an important request, the delay by the
Spaniards at this juncture, is something more than significant.
The game of diplomacy now pro
grossing here has reached a stage
which makes it interesting to watch
the next move to be made by the Spanish commissioners. They are confronted by the plain fact of tlieir protocol agreement to relinquish and evacuate without "ifs" or "buts. " It has
become clear here that the Spaniards
cherished the hope that they would un-
conditionallv covenant to follow a
given path and ultimately wander
elsewhere and do less or more than is
named in the protocol compact. The
American commissioners however,
have firmly adhered to the boundary
lines already mutualy established and
within which they injjst the Spaniards
as well as themselves, shall duly proceed.
The Cape Government Will Recognize
the South African Republics.
London, Oct. 19.���A despatch to the
Times from Capetown says that Mr.
W. P. Schreiner, the new premier,
aud leader of the Afrikanderhund,

new colonial government in the Cape
assembly yesterday. The government,
he said, would reoognize the independence of the South African republics
aud work harmoniously with them,
leaving external relationship with them
to be dealt with by the British high
commissioner, whom the government
would support in the de,, elopmeut ot
South Africa. Tbe government
would also carry forward a bill for a
new onstoms convention with the
South African republics and introduce
a proposal for a contribution on the
part of tho colony in support of the
British navy.

It is reported directly from high
court circles that the engagement of
the young Queen Wilhelmina to Prince
William of Wied is a settled tact.
Youug womeu all over the world will
be glad to learn that this is a love
match. Prince William is 22 years of
age, four years older than his royal
fiancee. He is Queen Wilhelmina's
second cousin and his mother was
Princess Marie of the Netherlands who
married the reigning Prince of Wied
in 1871. Prince Wiiiiam's father was
conspicuous at all the brilliant and
joyous ceremonies attending Queen
Wilhelmina's coronation early lust

mother will go to Stuttgart next week
to be present at the marriage of the
Princess Pauline of Whurtemburg and
Princo Freiderick, of Weid, Prince
William's elder brother. This wedding takes place on October 26, aud it
is probable that the announcement
of Queen's own engagement will be
made tben.

St. Johns, Nfld., Oct. 19.���The entire coast'line of the island has been
swept by the recent storm and it is
feared there has been great devastatiou
the northern mictions and along
the Labrador coast. It is already
known that two men wero drowned at
Rose Blanche, 225 miles west of St.
Johns, and it is feared many others
have shared the same fate, because a
number of vessels were driven seaward near that point. Owing to
the fact that most of the smaller harbors have no telegraph lines it is impossible to obtain details, but serious
damage to shipping is inevitable.

Extraordinary Utterance of the IParisian
Journalist in His Paper Anent.tho
New York, Oct. 19.���A despatch
to the World from Paris says:
Henii Rochefort is believed to have
gone crazy over the Dreyfus agitation.
The repoited decision of the court of
cassation that Madame Dreyfus' lawyer shall see the Dreyfus dossior has
caused Rochefort to demand in his
paper, L'lutranigeante, that the
members of the court of cassation
having beeu previously drawn up in
single file an executioner duly trained
to the work should cut off their eyelids so as to leave the eyeballs denuded
and then spiders of the most venomous
kind should be enclosed in nutshells
and applied to tho eyeballs, properly
fastened behind  the   culprits'   heads.
The spiders in a famished condition
would slowly and gradually feed on
the culprit's eyeballs until nothing but
ghastly cavities"remained. This done,
these hideous 'blind men should be
chained to a pillar erected before the
palace of justice, and on their chests
a placard affixed bearing the words,
"Thus does France punish traitors who
attempt to sell her to the enemy.''

Washington, Oct. 19.���The house
of bishops of tho Episcopal convention
took final action today on tho establish
ment of a bishop in Brazil. There
has been a division of sentiinnt as to
whether this bishop should bo directly responsible to the church in the
United Statos or should be freo from
responsibility here. A compromise
was finally adoptetd by which tho
church in Brazil will remain directly
responsible to the authorities hero
uutil it has advanced to the point, of
having three bishops, at which time,
by the joint action of thoso threo, a
national church for Brazil, Independent of the supervision of the United
States, may be established. The bishop
will hold a special eommunieou servico
at St. John's church tomorrow moru-
ing, after which they will proceed to
elect four missionary bishops, uamely
those for Brazil, North Dakota, Sacramento aud Boise.
Kingston, Ont. Oct. 19.
course of a speech last night in
to the civic address, Sir Wilfrid Laurier said: "You speak in this address of another subject, tho great international conference which has been
sitting iu the City of Quebec to settle
differences of opinion between us and
our neighbors to the south. Sir, I
can say, I can claim only oue thing in
regard to that.
I claim no merit or credit in regard
to the commission, save this, that I
have doue my best to bring about
such a conference and to give us an
opportunity of settling our differences.
I claim soineth ing more, I claim that
at this time we are presenting a spectacle to the world at large that is
teaching how a simple colony can becomo a nation not by revolution,
but by evolution. (Cheers). We. exercise today a power of sovereignty.
We are negotiating, or trying at all
events, to negotiate, a treaty with our
neighbors. This we do with the
sanction of the mother land. We give
the further lesson to the world that it
is possible to be an independent nation
while maintaining our colonial ties.
(Cheers.) This is au example whioh
was never given in mr- part of the
woild ei in my i\r*'iS. xon would
search in vain the annals of all humanity and you would not find such
an example. As to the result of this conference, I will not venture to predict.
IJiave hopes, but I have no certainty.
Inave hopes we will be ablo to meet
our neighbors to give aud to take and
be able theroby to settle our differences
aud improve our relations. You say
very truly in this address of yours
thut wo want to be on terms of
friendship with our neighbors, aud
we should, make no disguise of it.
For my part I have abundant and deep
sympathy in my heart for the American republic. (Applause.) I love England well, I love Canada best of all.
(Cheers.) But Sir, while I hope that
we shall be able to obtain an honorable treaty. I say I am not disposed to
obtain anything from our neighbors
except by an honorable concession
which will stop short of our national
dignity. (Cheers.) We will do tbe
best that is possible to settle our differences and to have immediate peace betweeu us, but wo shall not either
now, or at any time, purchase that
great boon by the sacrifico of our
manhood or the loss of our national
dignity. (Cheers.) Lot me hope,
however, that wise counsels will prevail on either side and that we shall
do something to bring together the
two great branches of the Anglo-Saxon
race. If we fail, we shall not be discouraged, bnt wo shall meet the
situation liko men. And let me tell
you we shall thrivo and we shall be a
nation yet. Tho fate of this vast
country is not dependent upon the result of the negotiations wliich have
taken place at Quebec and which are
to be continued at Washington. Thoy
may help. I hope they will, but if
thoy fail, wo shall continue' to be a
nation as we are at the prosont time.

WILFRID'S  PATRIOTISM.      otio a way.    Mr. Charlton   was at ono
  time  so intensely   American   that  he
Sir    Wilfrid   Lauder's   speech    at  was looked upon  as an   annexationist.
Kingston had the truo   ring   about  it  Tho wav in wliich he opposed  an   ex-
port duty upon saw logs, aud how he
lobbied at Washington to secure legislation uot favorable to the lumbering
industry in Canada were inexplicable
until it became known that the mem
ber for Norfolk had saw mills in Michigan and New York wliich he supplied
with Canadian logs. Mr. Charlton is
a temperance advocate, a Sunday observance man and author of an aot regarding seduction, and he regards the
world as having been made especially
for him to get all ho can out of it.
Accordingly, to aid John Charlton's
business he was prepared to deliver his
countrymen to the Americans. Ho was
a prominent member of the annexation
I coterie that Sir   Oliver   Mowat  dealt
and he enunciated sentiments which
must find an echo in the heart of every
patriotic Canadian. Trenching as he
did upou diplomatic questions, the
premier could not be explicit in his
references to the progress made by the
Quebec conference, but he said enough
to assure the people that Canada's
interests would be fully protected. He
voiced the national fooling wheu he
said that there was a deep desire iu
this couutry to establish the most harmonious relations possible with the
people of the United States. Canada
would probably go to great lengths to
bring this about ou the prinoiplejof give

Keep Abreast of the Times, That's Our Motto.
Next week you will find us in our new quarters, just one door east of the
old premises, where we will lie in a better position than ever to cater to and
supply the wants of our many customers, both in the line of close prices and
prompt attention.
We have been neglecting some of our customers during the past week, having had two carloads of goods lying at the station awaiting the completion of
our new premises before unloading, thereby causing a little delay on thn part
of filling ordei'H. However, we are pleased to say that the goods are all in our
warehouse now and next week we will have theni 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* coin-
' plete in B. O. in the line of Fancy Groceries,  Biscuits,   Bottled
and Canned Goods.
To Close Buying Mining Camps
We would say that our stock is larger than ever in our line.
See our warerooms. A glance over this department will convince you that wc are your money saver. Our prices are so
that we defy competition where full weight and honest measure
is considered.    Call and get acquainted with us anyhow.

The Couucil Discusses the
Matter at Length.
The Bodies Will Moved to the New Cemetery by Contract��� renditions of
the Cemetery.
Atthe   spe;ial   meetiug   of the city
council   held   yesterday  afternoon for
the purpose of considering   the   cemetery question thero  were   present   the
Mayor,   Aldermen   Whalley,   Hillyer.
Madden   and   Malone.    A   deputation
from the   I. O. 0. F. was also present
'with the object of  seourinf?  two ncres
'of ground   for the society in   the  new
'burial ground.
There  wan   a   good deal of   discussion as to the price per acre to be asked
of the churches and   tho   different  societies.    Aid.   Hillyer    .wai    of    the
opinion   that,  $200    would   be  a  fair
'price, but on the  expenso hitherto incurred by the city  being  figured  out,
���it was considered that the  figure was
* too high.    Eventually  ou    motion  of
Alderman   Whalley and Hillyer it was
decided   to  chargo   all   churches  and
societies $150 per acre.    This was   accepted   by the   Odd   Fellows' deputation.
It was .decided to   have   the   bodies
moved   from the   old  cemetery to the
new by contract,   and  the   conditions
I were agreed upon   by   the council.    It
I was agreed that   all  contractors  must
[provide a covered zine lined wagon box
[for the removal of  tho bodies, or   else
'.ine lined boxes   of   sufficient size  to
contain the coffins.    Lime must be put
fin tho coffin and   the   old   graves  nn-
l'ler the supervision  of an   inspector to
Ibe appointed   by   tho city.    The  city
[will provide the  disinfectants,   and a
marked check   for   $250   must accompany oach tender.
It was further decided that all bod-
j es for which tho city bears the re-
luoval expenses, will bo buried in the
mm num burial ground, but that all
I takes or other marks of iudeutifica-
[ion will be transplanted.
Those removing bodies must go by
lhe Water street route, and all conditions imposod on contractors will
I'pplv to private parties removing
I he bodies of tlieir friends.
It was decided to charge $2 for a
linglo grave and $4 for a plot and also
[hat all persons desiring to bury any
Ine in the city cemetery will le
[harged $1 for "a burial permit. It
[-.���as further agreed to appoint a grave
I igger and caretaker who should look
lifter such portions of the cometery as
Ire not* disposed of, and also dig the
lauper graves. The grave digger will
le entitled to charge $5 for digging
jihor graves.
J After instructing the city engineer
I) get out specifications for a fence to
lirround the cemetery tho council ad-
liurned until noxt Monday at the
final hour.

the correspondence between Great

facts were undisputed.

skold, professor of mineralogy at tho
Upsala University, has returned
from the Yukon gold fields where he
has been to report tor the Swedish government on the formation of the eountry, its richness uud future outlook.
He says tlw Yukon country is very
rich and will be productive for a
long time to come. "I have a very
large edlection of minerals for mv
government, I disagree with '.ill those
minoralostists before uie. I olalm that
huge deposits of quartz hivn or
will bi' found that ar.' responsible
for the vast ureas of auriferous gravel.
The gold at present found comes nn-
donbtedly from the old river beds, but
they aro very different from the Arctic
rivers ou the other side of the world.
The field must be limited. The
quartz will be low grade aud found
near by. The gold bus not been carried by glaciei'3. Tlwo will be no
other Klondike in the ' ^kou. The
Stewart river district is since, consequently disappointing tor gold. Pine
creek is uot rich. I have investigated
the entire country. Tho rich auriferous gravel is in a comparatively
small area."
