Movement's of Political Leaders iu the
Mainland  Capital,
Vanoouver, July 81��� (Special to The
Miner).���There has been quite a number of prominent opposition and liberal
leaders in Vancouver lately. Mr, Semlin was here yesterday, but went home
today, and Mr. Hewitf-Bostock intends to return home tomorrow.
No decision bas been yet arrived at
as In the titular leadership of the
opposition. This point will be decided
OU August 30, In the event of the
opposition party getting into office,
the general impression in well informed circles here is thai Joseph
Martin will either take the premiership or else that he will not, for the.
present at any rate, lake office at all.
Ho is anxious thut Messrs. Cotton and
Semlin should have the opportunity to
reap Ihe reward so well earned by
their long up-hill light, and also to

Friederiehsrhuh, July IIO.���Prince
Bismarck has passed away peacefully.
Berlin, July 80.���Princo Bismarck
died shortly beforo 11 o'clock this
Details of the death of Prince Bismarck are obtained with difficulty, because of the lateness of the hour und
the strenuous endeavors of the attendants of the family to prevent publicity.
Tbe death of the ex-ehane.ellor comes a
as surprise to all Europe. Despite tho
family's denials thero was a considerable apprehension when the sinking of
tbe prince was first announced, inspired more by what tho family left
unsaid than by any information given,
but when the daily bulletins chronicled
the improvement in the prince's condition and detailed bis extensive bills
of fare aud told of his devotion to his
pipo, lhe public accepted Dr. Schweninger's assertion when he said there
was no reason why Bismarck should
not reach the ago of IIO yenrs. The reports weie deemed to be a repetition of
lhe alarm thai" Prince Bismarck was
in extremis, which bad been often repeated in the past. All the Saturday
papers iu Europe dismissed Bismarck
with a paragraph, noting his improve
ment, while bis condition was completely overshadowed in the English
papers by the condition of the Prince
ot Wales' knee,
It appears that the ex-chancellor's
death was not precipitated by sudden
complications, Imt was ruther tho otil-
mination of chronic disease, neuralgia
of the face and inflammation of the
veins, which kept him in constant
pain that was borne with tho iron
fortitude which might hnvo been expected.
Prince   Otto   Edward   Leopold Bis-
i marek-Schonhauseu was born of au old
land   noble   family   of    the   "mark"
j ( Brandenburg) at Schonhauseu,   April
j 1, 1815.   He was created a count  September Ki, 1885, and prince (furst) von
Bismarck   in   March,   1871.    He was
I educated at*   the   University   of  Goot-
| tingeufaud Gieiforswald.and spent some
time   ill   the   army, but   subsequently
settled down as a country   gentleman.
Brought up   iu   the   political  faith of
the   Junkers   of   the   Prussian    Tory
Squirarohy,   he  became,   in   1H4H,   a
member of   the provincial diet of Saxony and of the Prussian diet, in which
lie first attracted attention by his fiery
speeches in defence   of   the  old  monarchical party.
During the revolutionary period of
1SIK the service be rendered in the
public debates to Iho conservative
cause led to his appointment as the
representative of Prussia in the diet,
of tbe old German bund at Frankfort,
Austria was then powerful in tbo
German bund, From ihe time of Bis-
marck's appearance, however.the voice
of Prussia began to have increasing
I weight.
The successful audacity with which
j lie checkmated Austria in au intrigue
at Franktort was the source of constant irritation nt. Vienna, and natnr-
! ally (elided to produce some estrangement between the Austrian and Prussian courts. Bismarck was sent* as an
! ambassador to St. Petersburg' in 1869
j aud held that position until lSti'.'. In
May, lsiis. he became Prussian ambassador at Paris. Five months later
he was made first minister of tho
j Prussian erown. Within the next ten
| years he bumbled Ihe Austrian empire, destroyed the French empire and
created the Cerman empire. He re-
inodled the map of Europe, dismembering Denmark and France, He enlarged tho frontiers of Prussia, and by
the annexation of the various provinces, including lhe dominions of three
dethroned German princes he succeeded in placing Germany,whioh had
previously been the weakest and least
respected of the great powers, at the
head of all the states of Kurope. The
Oerman bund, having at Bismarck's
instigation resolved to invade the Elbe
j duchies in support of the claim of the
Duke of AugUBtenburg, Austria, Prussia and Saxony were entrusted with
the execution o'f tho task and a war
broke out in 18114 with Denmark, resulting inthe loss to her of the duchies
of Sehleswig-Holstein and Oldenburg.
Instead of giving them up to the duke,
Bismarck, who was now a count, determined if possible to annex them to
Prussia. The Austrian and Saxon
troops wero recalled and the quarrel
eventually  led to a war between Prus
sia and Austria, in lSliti, tho last
named country being joined by Bavaria, Hanover, Hesse-Cassel, Hesse-
Darmstadt and Nassau. The arms of
Prussia wero victorious, and Austria
suffered a crushing defeat at Sadowa
(Koniggratz), in Bohemia. Hanover
and tho South German empire states
likewise wero vanquished, and the
war, whieh was over in seven weeks,
led to the treaty of Nikolsbtirg, by
wliich Austria was permanently excluded from the Gsrinan bund, and
Hanover, Nassau, Hesse-Cassel and
Frankfort, as well as Sehleswig-Holstein and Oldenburg, were annexed to
Prussia. The North German confederation, with Prussia at its head, was
established in place of the old bund,
while with tho South German states
an offensive and defensive alliance was
concluded, giving the King of Prussia
supreme command of iill tlieir troops
in time of war.
He Statos That He Personally   Invited

Washington, July ill).���The vsar  department has received the following:
Santiago de Cuba, July 20.��� To
Hon. R. A. Alger, Secretary of War,
Washington : I have the Sun, of Saturday, July 2'i, in which comments are
made as to my treatment of General
Garcia. I desire to say that General
Garcia was invited by nie personally to
go into the city at the time I entered,
but lie declined upon tho ground that
the Spanish civil officers were loft in
power. It was fully explained to him
that thoso officials were only to be
continued in power until it was convenient to change them for others,
(ieneral Garcia's'assistance to me was
purely voluntary on his part, nnd he
wns told at tho bogiuning thut I did
not exercise any control over him except as he chose to give it. The trouble
with (ieneral Garcia was that lie ex-
nected to lie placed in command at
this place; iu other words, that we
would turn the city over to him. I
explained to him fully that we were
at war with Spain, and that the question of Cuban independence could not
bo considered by mo. Another grievance was that, finding that several
thousand men marched in without
opposition from General Garcia, I ex
tended my own lines in front of him
and elosed up tho gap, t, , Z si. * ��� that I
had to depend on my own men for any
effective investment of tho place.

Distinguished  Men  Decline   to Wear
the Cross of tho Legion of Honor.
Paris, July 80.��� Thc expulsion of
M. Emile Zola from the Legion of
Honor promises to oreate a serious discussion in the ranks of that organization, The well known author, M.
Jules ' Barbior, resigned yesterday on
account of M. Zola's expulsion, and
this morning M. de Presence, tho distinguished editor of tho Temps, took
a similar course, saying it is "repugnant to wear a decoration which still
ornaments the breast of a man liko
Esterbazy, while it has been removed
from that of a great writer simply because he demands that the most elementary principle of law and justice
be respected."

Oambon  Was Spain's Plenipotentiary-
His Eloquenco Achieves a Groat
Diplomatic  Victory-
Washington, July 80.���At 4:15
o'clock the French ambassador left the
White house,his call having lusted two
and three-quarters hours, it was announced that the United States'
answer had been placed in the hands
of the French ambassador and that
nothing eould be said as to its nature,
until it had been received by the
Spanish government.
Washington, July 110.���Events of tho
most momentous character occurred at
the conference at the White houso this
afternoon, when tho president, Ambassador Cambon of France and Secretary of State Day were carrying the
peace negotiations far beyond the mere
submission of terms of peace by the
United States and reaching the point of
a preliminary basis of peace between
the government of Spain and the government of the United States, needing
only the ratification of the Madrid
cabinet, which was today to bring the
war to an end. This was accom-
plshed on tho part, of Spain when Ambassador Cambon presented the president credentials he has received from
the Spauish government appointing
him envoy extraordinary and plenipotentiary with complete instructions
as to the manner of le'tiu; upon every
one of the peace conditions presented
by tho United States, including the
disposition of Cuba, Porto Rico, the
Philippines, the Ladrones, indemnity,
armistice and all other questions likely
to arise in tho courso of the negotiations.
With those credentials authorizing
him to speak as plenipotentiary for the
government of Spain, with full instructions on every point at issue, Ambassador Cambon, on behalf of Spain,
not only received tho peace conditions
laid down by the American cabinet
early in the day, but thereupon entered upon their full discussion with a
view to reaching final and complete
After some argument the president
and Secretary Day consented to a
modification of the American terms.
To what particulars the modification
relates was not disclosed, hut it is not
believed that it applies to the independence of Cuba, the cession of Porto
Rico or tho granting of adequate coal
stations to the United States in the
Pacific, or to diminish in particular
the terms on which peaco will bo restored. Tho modification brought
about practical unanimity between the
president and Ambassador Cambon as
plenipotentiary for Spain, nnd the latter has transmitted the. result of the
conference to Madrid for approval,
which, if given, will end the war.
The profoundly important results developed today came about most unexpectedly. Since the original proposition of Spain was presented last* Tuesday M. Cambon had prepared himself
to speak with authority on the questions which were to arise. The. president himself preferred the source,
though outside of himself and the ambassador few were aware that the latter
would come ready to treat as the envoy
of Spain.
The first instructions to M. Cambon
made him merely a medium of communicating Spain's first note, but now
be appeared with all tho attributes of
the direct diplomatic officer of Spain,
empowered to act for the government
within liis very complete instructions.
The meeting was held in the president's library, and both in the subjects
discussed and the impressive manner
in which tho argument proceded it
was a conference which will be memorable. After M. Cambon had presented his credentials as plenipotentiary aud they had been examined and
his status recognized as the envoy of
Spain, the lirst business was the presentation of terms laid down by the
United States. Secretary Day read
tho terms, pausing at tho end of each
sentence to allow M. Tliibault to interpret into French,as the ambassador's
knowledge of English is limited. This
reading by Secretary Day and interpretation by M. Thi haul t took but 15
minutes. Then began tho discussion.
Tho president and the ambassador addressed each other direct, with' the
greatest freedom and frankness, each
maintaining tho justice of his position
on the sovoral points involved, when
at last, after au eloquent  plea  by  tho

surily condensed, is perfectly easy to

Insure change,
We have received n leiter. which we
publish in another column, from tho
legal representatives of the captain
and officers of the steamer Nelson, asking us to publish an article, which they
very kindly provide, withdrawing tl.e
"base insinuations" made in a
recent article on the conduct of ihose
in charge of this steamer.
Iu reply we would say that we very
much regret that WO are unable lo
comply with this request. It is not
the habit of Tbe Miner to make
chnrges of the kind complained of
without lirst going carefully into the
matter, and taking all reasonable precautions ns to the correctness of the
facts stated. Our informants on this
occasion nre two gentlemen of standing and repute in the town who had
personally suf'i'ereii the inconveniences
complained of, nud who expressed
themselves us willing   to   substantiate
their statements on oath.
So fur from being actuated by
"malicious'' motives, The Miner hns
beon very slow to tnke action in this
matter. The original complaint wns
made to us several weeks ago, but we
advised the complainants to speak lo
the steamer officials on the subject, us
we were unwilling to give publicity to
what was possibly a single and accidental instance. The same thing, however, recurred several times���hence
mir article.
Wo only received the communication referred to last (Sunday) evening,
and consequently we have been unable
to take any steps in lhe matter. We
intend, however, in   our   next issue to
ublish affidavits by both our informants which will completely substantiate nil our assertions, for The Miner
declines to stultify itself liy withdrawing what it knows to be true.
The conduct of the captain and crew
of the Nelson bus caused a great deal
of inconvenience to prospectors and
others, who form no inconsiderable
section of the public in this district,
and we are entitled to comment on it,
aud if further instances of the same
character are brought to our notice in
the future, we. shall have great pleasure
iu again commenting on them in
such terms as we muy deem lifting
and proper Io the occasion.
Many will no doubt remember that
when Premier Turner visited Nelson
during the recent election campaign he
made the statement that a wagon road
was being built from Glenora, as the
Mackenzie-Maun railroad scheme had
fallen through. A perusal of the reports of ihe premier s speeches shows
that he made this statement constantly
throughout his campaigning tour of
the interior of the province. It transpired very soon afterwards that lhe
wagon road wus not being made, nnd
thai the old trail wus merely being
pntched up, This fact wns very properly published by almost the entire
opposition press, the government
organs maintaining a discreet silence
the while. Now, the Vancouver
World, quite unabashed, in an article
ou the question, makes this statement:
"The foregoing will set at rest any
doubt which the opposition obstructionists entertained concerning the
statements made by Premier Turner,
to tho effect that arrangements had
bten completed by the government for
the immediate construction of a trail
from Glenora to Toslin lake." The
premier said, beforo elections, that a
wagon road was being made, and uow,
aftor the elections, ono of   the leading

Dear Sir���With reference to the editorial nu silver-lend smelting in this

of those interested, copies of a telegram from lhe Vancouver World nnd

To the Editor of The Miner:
Hear Sir���We have been consulted
by lhe officers and captain of tho
steamer Nelson nbout whom an editorial appeared in your issue of this
date, to demand an immediate und
complete  apology  of    the     contents
We are advised that if you have been
informed as stated therein lhat such
information is entirely untrue, and we
say that we do not quite see or understand why you should publish it without inquiring of the captain the facts
as ho states them. Hence, our clients
feel justified in believing that the
article was written from a malicious
or improper motive.
It is a well known fact amongst
numbers of passengers who travel almost daily on the steamer that tho
captain and officers are most obliging
and especially to passengers of way
ports, not regular landing places, und
their desire to very strongly object to
such base insinuations as are contained
therein is easily understood.
Another article iu reply or rather
in explanation has been prepared,
which we enclose herewith, and we
must o.i behalf of the captain and
officer demand that this be published iu
the same manner as tho article in
question, otherwise we are instructed to take such steps as are
necessary and we deem advisable in
the matter, but we trust this will bo
avoided by your prompt attention to
the publication of the enclosed, in
Monday morning's issue of your paper.

Van Home und Hill's Meeting at St.
Paul Settled  Nothing.
Despite the many rumors that the
conference recently at St. Paul between Sir William Van Home, president of the Canadian Paciiic, and
President Hill of the Great* Northern,
had practically settled the rate war
question, these two railroad presidents
are steadily denying the story. The
Toronto Globe prints the following SI.
Paul despatch on the subject :
"The rumor has been very active
and persistent for the past few days
that the trip of Sir William Van
Home, president of the C. P. R., to
the western railway centers [had something to do with the rale war, but*
(hat gentleman says it is not so. The
story went on to say that tho highest
official of the big Canadian road has
gone so far as to settle tlie matter with
J. J. Hill the leading man of tho
great* railway interests. It was a
statement of this nature which was
handed lo Sir William this morning
iu his private ear at the Windsor
street station. The president hud just
arrived back from Iho west, the
Saskatchewan being attached to tlie
Chicago train which arrived ibis
" 'I don't know anything about the
rate war, and my trip to the west was
on entirely different business,' was
tho reply whieh Sir William gavo.
That was all he had to say on tho
matter. "

Berlin, July 80.���While  tho qnurrol
between Emperor William  and Regent
Lippe-Detmold is only a  tempest in a |

court   etiquette, ii   has  occupied  the
press lo the exclusion of iiliinisl   every-

ministry of the interior hns briefly out-
lined tho facts in tho case to llu
spondent   of   the    Associated
They are us follows :
The regent was already offended on
account of various alleged slights for
whieh he Illumed tho emperor, when
tho general commanding tho troops 111
the principal cities ordered his .soldiers
henceforth not to make the salute prescribed in case ol' ruling sovereigns or
to show the customary marks of respect to the regent's family. The
regent thereupon deeming his rights
under the military convention of 1878
to have been slighted, appealed tothe
emperor in a personal letter for redress.
This letter contained several passages
which were construed by his majesty
to bo purposely offensive, whereupon
ho sent tho regent u telegram wliich
traversed a dozen hands and then
reached the newspapers substantially
word for word. Then followed the
deeply offended regent's appeal to the
sovereigns of Germany and to the
bundesrath. The matter is expected
to remain in statu quo for some time.
The correspondent of the Associated
Press learns from another source lhat
Emperor William's anger was partly
aroused by certain references in the
regent's letter to the empress and her
family, apparently being drawn on the
question of rank in both eases, and
his majesty's ire was increased by the
faot that the legislature of Lippe-
Detmold, at the regent's behest and
without awaiting the decision of the
bundesrath, passed a law in March
prejudicing the chances of the succession of Adolphe of Siehaumburg
Lippe, Emperor William's brother-in-
law. The majority of the newspapers
uphold the regent. A Bavarian editor,
Herr Minninger, who lirst published
the story, publicly declares that he
only refrains for patriotic reasons from
publishing furl her details of (he goings
on at Berlin.
The newspapers here continue to
misunderstand or misinterpret the
temper of the Americans. They assert
that the latter are ready for peace on
almost any terms providing Ouba is
granted independence and that the war
is most unpopular, notably in business
circles, in spite of the phenomenal
successes the Americans have already
secured. The military editors continue
to assert that the TTnited Statos will
lind it more and more difficult lo
achieve an ultimate military success,
especially in Ouba,
As a reason for the delay in pressing
the German merchants' claims for
damages, whieh are alleged to have
arisen through the war in the Philippines, it is explained that the German
government considers it unwise to
push the claims now,while the Americans are more or less incensed against
His  Murderers Unearthed   Two Years
After lhe ('rime.
London, July Illl.���Advices have "heen
received here from the United States
to the offoct that three natives have
beeu arrested in connection with the

was reported on Tune 15, 1896, to have
been assassinated south of Tripoli.
The advices add that the prisoners
have confessed to the murder. The

Osier, Q.C., Will Assist Hie Magistrate
at the Preliminary Hearing.
Napanee, Out., July 30. ���It has been
definitely   arranged  that  B. B. Osier,
[Q. 0., will attend tho preliminary investigation into the bank robbery caso
next week and will be present* in the
interest of the erown. Magistrate
Daly is not ;t lawyer by profession aud
will therefore be glad to have, eminent
: counsel to assist hint iu deciding
whether evidence sufficient to hold
the prisoners exists. This is the lirst
time in many years that so eminent a
counsel has been asked to undertake a
preliminary examination, but in view
of Ihe public agitation in connection
with tlie ease it is conceded that there
Bhould hereafter he no question as to
whether the case has bien properly
conducted from the start. Some fifty
witnesses will be subpoenaed for (lie
crown and as many more for Ihe defense. The more sensible portion of the
citizens, although they are in the minority, are contented to await the evidence before pronouncing innocent or
guilty the parties under arrest. Interest in the ease does not abate and tbe
proceedings will be watched with
much interest.
A Strange Outbreak Among the Cattle
and Horses of Ontario.
Kingston,Ont., Jaly 110.���Tbe farmers
in the vicinity of Elginburg have become greatly alarmed at a mysterious
disease whieh has made its appearance
among the young cattle of that vicinity. The disease ..ittacks COWS in tbe
eyes, which bulge out, after which
they go blind. The disease is not eon-
fined to eows, several horses and even
chickens having been affected. Dr.
Bell, Y. S., says it is a comparatively
new disease and many appear in enzootic or epizootic form. As it appears
in county Frontenae cattle are attacked at all ages, but dairy oows
seem lo suffer most*. The disease is
most prevalent in the hot and dry summer months, but may appear at any
time in the vear.

ambassador, it Was agreed   to   modify
the conditions iu oue particular.
Secretary Day withdrew for half an
hour and attended to the drafting of
ihe modification, This accomplished,
thc ambassador addressed himself to
the president, not so much as Ihe advocate of Spain, but personally. M.
Oambon is a man of fervid eloquonee,
and he spoke with an intensity of feel
ing whieh made a deep impression on
the president and the others present.
He spoke in French, each sentence
being caught and interpreted by M.
Thihault with rapidity, so that the
earnestness of the ambassador's impression lost little by this indirect
method of communication. The president spoke with equal frankness, and
an earnest and lengthy discussion took
place. There was scarcely a.point in
the whole length of the war which
was not met and freely discussed.
What the modification i.s that has
been agreed on can only be conjectured. There is reason to believe
that it relates either to the lime when
actual hostilities will bo suspended or
else to the extent of the Americans'
interest in the Philippines. It is now
for the Madrid government to give
iheir final approval to what was
partially accomplished today. It is
even possible that this approval may
eome very speedily, for there is no
need of extended conference or correspondence, But it is for Spain herself
to determine whether she will have
paeee or war.
