The Premier at the Lord
Mayor's Banquet
Immense Cheering Ensued Whon thelNoble
Lord Mentioned a Protectorate Tor
Egypt���No Pear of War.
London, Nov. II.���Tho animal banquet of tho Lord-Mayor of London
took place at the Guild ball tbis even-
ini?. Tbere wero about 850 guests
present, including members of tho diplomatic corps, cabinet ministers and
other distinguished peoplo and tbeir
wives. After tbe formal reception in
the library thoro was tho usual oroees-
sion to the great ball which sorved as
tho hauqtietting placo. Aftor tho usual loyal tonsts tbo navy and army
were toasted.
Admiral Sir Wm. Kennedy and
Gen. Lord Wolseley responding for their
respective forces, which were described as being iu a perfect stato of preparedness to meet any power disputing
Groat Britain's just ' claims.
Tbe brevity of tbe speeches showed
that every one realized there was general anxiety to benr the Marquis of
Salisbury, who, on rising to respond
to the toast of "Her Majesty's ministers," was greeted with prolonged
The premier began by Baying tbat
a succession of events abroad had occasioned gravo anxiety to the ministry for a year past. He alluded to
the murder "of the Empress of Austria,
for the double purpose of expressing
the universal regrot experienced on account of the crime and for announcing that Great Britain bad accepted
an iuvitntion to take part in a confer-
once which would be culled to doter-
iiiinn npon the measures which it is
possible to take iu order to blot out
anarchy. Tbe Marquis of Salisbury
ndded that at the same time be was
bound to say he had no great hope that
legislation wonld abate "this horrible,
monstrous affliotion of humanity."
After referring in a laudatory manner to the British onmpaigns in India
nnd in the Soudan, the premier turned
to the ('rolim question and the concert
of Europo. He said bo was afraid
that the proceedings of tho concert
were not always admired. At the
same time he pointed out that* patient
application, combined witb tbe moral
strength of Europe, have at last succeeded in fulfilling tho promiso made
to tbe Cretans of giving them autonomy under tho Bnzortainty of tho Sultan.
Continuing, tho premier remarked
"Thn solution of this most difficult
problem bas witnessed displays of
splendid and unexpected qualities and
diplomacy upon the part of the ndmir-
als who have successfully accomplished what the cabinets of Europe hnd
beeu unable to do. I have somotimos
thought that if tho cabinets wero all
dismissed and admirals were installed
in tbeir places, Europe would get on
Turning to the crisis with France,
the premier remarked : "We bave had
quite reoontly to consider whethor the
question of a European war was nnt
very near. Bnt with great interest
and consideration the result hns turned
out happily, through the great judgment and common sense displayed by
France under circumstances of unusual difficulty, which, I think, have
relieved Europe of a very dangerous
and threatening storm. Whilo mat-
tors were in suspense the government
wns necessarily forced to take precautions, that it should not have been
taken unawares. These precautions
were most prompt and effective, but
the immediate necessity for them has
passed off. There has been some surprise on hoth sides of tbo channel at
the fact that these preparations have
not suddenly ceased, but it is impossible to stop them nt a moment's
After referring to the various rumors
of intended action arising out of those
preparations, inoluding the seizure of
Syria and Crete and the declarations
of a protectorate over Egypt, the latter
allusion being greeted with immense
clieeriug, Lord Salisbury continued: I
am sorry to say I cannot rise to the
height of tbe aspirations indicated by
the cheering of the audience. I do not
venture to prophesy, if we aro forced by
others into n position wo do not now
occupy, what may occur; but we are
well satisfied with the existing state
of things and we do not think any
cause has arisen to necessitate effort
ou our part at present to modify it.
The position causes occasional friction, but taking tbo question as a
whole, and considering the feelings of
other peoplo as well as our own, we
can reasonably rest for the present
with thc oxisting state of nffnirs. I
must not bc understood as meaning
that Great. Britain's position in
Egypt is tho samo now as it was before tbe fall of Omdurman, but we
nro earnestly hoping tbat circumstances will not make it necessary
materially to modify that position, as
we nro convinced tbo world would not
then live so peaceably as now."
The premier also said the United
States Was now a disturbing faction in
Europpau politics, but, he added, not
to tbo detriment of Great Britain.
(Loud cheers.)

What the London Car Co.
Offered  Strikers-
The Oompany Would Take Back tho Men,
The Bulk of Whom Wonld Earn
Thirteen Oents an Honr.
London, Nov. 9.���Following is the
basis of settlement of the strike offered
by the street railway oompany and
refused by themen:
The company offers to pay 18 cents
an hour for the first year, 14 for the
second year and 15 for the third year,
the hours to be arranged by tbe men
"Upon this basis" said Manager
Carr "57 men could start to woik at
15 cents, seven at 14 cents and the remainder at 13 cents. Many of these
latter within the next month would
be increased by reason of length of service."
Carr said tbis rate was higher than
iu any oity of London's size in Canada. In other words, the men wanted
the same rate of wages as was paid in
Toronto, where the earnings are 60 per
cent more per mile than in London.
The company agreed to reinstate all
tlie men who went out and those wbo
were discharged when the trouble
Tbe arbitration clause approved by
men sets forth that the men having a
grievence may be heard by tbe manager and if dissatisfied tbey shall be
again heard with one or more of tbe
employees who oan prove the justice
of complaint. If the employe be then
dissatisfied bis complaint is to be laid
before the president. In case motor
men and conductors should be dis
missed aud it should be found that
tliey were not at fault they were to be
restored to position with full back pay.
The Union clause, as ratified by
both parties reads: "Tbat all future
employes of the oompany shall have
full liberty to affiliate with any association or club and shall not be required to sign any document to
abridge tbis agreement."

Emperor William and Empress Augusta Victoria, after visiting Cadiz,
will visit Cartagena. The queen regent will inivte them to visit Madrid.
Americans Mako Answers to Certain
Spanish  Claims.
Paris, Nov. 9.���The Americans today answered Spain's claim for tho
restitution to her of publio money
and custom collections tnken by
United States offioials since the capitulation of Manila, and they nlso^mudo
reply to Spain's claim for an indemnity on account of the alleged imprisonment by tho United States authorities of Spanish troops at Manila and
for tboir oonsoquent restraint from being of service to Spain in tbe suppression of tbe insurgent insurection and
tbe protection of property. To theso
points, tho Amerioan prepared an exhaustive reply yesterday, which
though not fully typewritten at 2 p.
m., the time fixed for tbe roeoting of
Tuosday would bave been submitted
to the Spsaniards at four p. Tm., yesterday, hnd it not boen that tbe commissioners of Spain refused to meet at
that hour, pleading other engsgo-
ments as an eicuso for their refusal.
The American commissioners held
tbat there wns justification under the
terms of the protocol for the discussion
of the futuro of the Philippine islands and they also claimed that tbe
occupation of Manila is a military occupation, whicli justifies the United
Statos in collecting the revenues, administering the government, aud exercising all the functions of possession.
After a short joint session an adjournment was taken until   Saturday.
Eig Meeting of Passenger
Agents   at Buffalo  .
The Immigration Trafflo From Europe to
Amerioan and Canadian Points to
Be Pooled.
Buffalo, Nov. 9.���Au important conference of passenger representatives of
Americau and Canadian railroads opened at the Iroquois hotel in this city
today. The representation was big,
the principal roads in both countries
having delegates present. The purpose of the meeting is to improve the
transcontinental passenger situation,
to settle differences existing between
American lines and the Canadian Pacific road, to properly maintain rates
and to adopt a uniform system of
handling the immigrant trafflo from
Europe to the United States and
Canadian points. The Canadian Pacifio having recently been granted representation in tbe immigrant bureau
at New York, is likely to become a
strong competitor for this trafflo to
the Northwest points and it is more
or less the intention to praotically po#
this issue, thus giving each line a proportionate division. Today's meeting was devoted to routine matters.
The important work of the conference
will begin tomorrow.
It Will be Built as Soon as the Country
Justifies It.
Viotoria, Nov. 9.���0. P. Wolley,
who returned from the Stiekine river
country a few days ngo, was interviewed at Wrangel by the Stiekine
River Journal. Being asked for his
opinion regarding tbis country be said
that he had been in this country only
one year, and being heavily interested
here he made it a rule not to talk
much about tbo country for fear of being accused of talking from n selfish
motive. "I will say," continued Mr.
Wolley, "that both companies of
which I am director have done all we
expeotod to do and are thoroughly satisfied. Next year we will do much
more than we did this year, and I
have no doubt it is but a short time
before this country will equal the
Kootenay country. The great trouble
with this country is that people came
bere with a rush, expecting to find
largo returns quickly, but thoroughly
unprepared to endure hardships in order to secure riches. The failure to
build a railway was no drawback to
such men, for had a railway been
buiit this year, these mon would simply have gone to the torminus of the
railway aud after staying at that point
for a whilo would have oome out and
abused tho country tho same as they
have done. Regarding tho building
of the Cassiar railway, I will say
that the Cassiar Central will be built
as soon as wo aro satisfied that the
oountry will justify us iu building it
and not beforo. As I said before,
we aro satisfied ns fnr as we have

Foster today said that the work was
fairly well in hand, although uo progress bad been made since the adjournment in Quebec. Tho discussion is
to bo taken up where it was interrupted.
Toronto, Nov. 9.���Mrs. Bonsloy,
who kept tho Maternitv hospital, or
as better known, a "Baby farm," has
ben convicted of manslaughter ou tho
child of Mary McGarviu. Tho evidence showed that tho prisonor practically starved tbe infant to deatb. She

British Capital For a Canadian Project.
Dockyards to Be Established in Cape Breton Por the Building of Large Ships.
Ooal and Iron at Hand.
Montreal, Nov. 9.���A Star cable
from London, Nov. 9 snys: British
capital for iron shipbuilding in Nova
Scotia will soon be forthcoming. This
development is dne.to the action of a
prominent Canadian who has been
prompting the scheme in London for
some time past. There are millions in
it. The plant, it is learned, will be
established at Cape Breton, where cooperation with tbe Dominion Coal
company will be assured. Iron ore is
found in great quantities on the sonth
coast of Cape Breton. Tbis, it is said,
will be treated at a smolter to be
erected at Louisburg, 0. B. The erection of the ship building plant will
follow development of the iron works.
Experts have been over the ground and
their reports are favorable. In this
enterprise, it is hoped, lies the found
ation of a business capable of being ex
panded like tbe great establishments
on the Clyde nnd at Belfast.

and Capt. Baratier start for Fashoda
on Thursday or Friday to oarry out
tho evaouation of that place by the
French garrison, which will retire by
way of Abyssinia to Jibutil, Asia
Miuor, six months journey.
Now York, Nov. 9.���Nikola Tesla,
the electrician, in a newspaper interview describes an application of eleo-
tricity whereby, without tbe interposition of any artful medium of communication, one man can control and
diroct with absolute exactitude the
movements of any type of vessel, balloon or laud vehicle at any distance
tbat may be desired.
From a station on shore or from the
dock of a vessel nndor way, ��� torpedo-
boat equipped with Mr. Tesln's controlling device may be propellod either
ou or below tbe surface, manoeuvered
at will iii uny direction and finally
brought into contact aud exploded
ngninst the side of a hostile vessel at
any point within the range of the vision of the oporator.
More than his assuming that it were
possiblo to nccuratoly locate the position of the vessel which it is desired
to destroy, tho torpedo boat could be
directed to it evo.i if the ship lay in
the harbor of Southampton ind tbe
operator was.stationod at Sandy Hook.
Kingston, Jamaica, Nov. 9.���As tbe
first move in an economio scheme
for confederating the various West
Indian colonies, Mr. Joseph Chamberlain, British stcretnry of state for
tho colonies, recently oreatod the West
Indian agricultural department. The
colouiea aro now requested to send delegates to an agricultural conference to
bo held at Barbadoes shortly. At the
mcoting of tbo Jamaica Agricultural
society today the government's proposal was discussed. The society decided to decline to incur any expenditure as tho matter being essentially
official, all responsibility properly devolves on the government. The fact
is, Jamaica will probably decline to
join the proposed federation and will
hold out for reciprocity with the
United States as the only practicable
solution of the present eoonomio difficulties.
Several   States Go Over to
Them.   ���
The1 Gains are California, Indiana,IN. Jersey, K. York, Jl.  Dakota, Wisconsin, Maine and Nebraska.
Washington, No". 9.���The election
returns establish with certainty that
the United States senate will havo a
repnblioan majority after March 4
next. The analysis of the party change
show that the republicans have gained
seven seats from the democrats, California, Indiana, New Jersey, New-
York, North Dakota, Wisconsin and
Maine, and one from the populists,
Nebraska; they may lose one, Washington, which is in doubt and gain
one in West Virginia, whioh is also
in doubt. The political complexion of
the senate after March 4 will be republican, 53 democrat, 27 ; populist, 5;
silver republican, 4; in donbt, 2.
* San Francisco, Cal., Nov. 9.���California has gone to tbe republican column with more emphasis than ever
before. Tbe entire state ticket, with
the exception of the secretary of state,
bas been eleoted according to republican
claims. The count this year throughout the state has been unusually slow
and it will be several days before tbe
complete figures are received. The republicans claim all seven congressmen
and the legislature.
Lincoln, Neb., Nov. 9.���Belated re-
tnms today continue to indicate that
Nebraska has turned a political som-
���uersault and landed in tbe republican
column. Three hundred and seventeen
precincts outside of Lincoln and
Omaha gave Hayward, republican, for
governor, 8000 plurality. If this gain
is maintained. Hayward will carry
the state by o\*er 4000.
Denver, Col., Nov. 9.���Tho entire
fusion ticket, beaded hy Charles S.
Thomas, democrat for governor, is
eleoted by a majority approximating
about 50,000.
Salt Lake, Utah, Nov. 9.���The democrats have elected Roberts to congress
and carried the legislature, which will
elect a United States senator.
New York, Nov. 9.���Augustus Van
Wyok, when seen at his home in
Brooklyn today, refused to discuss the
result of the eleotion with reporters
and replied to all inquiries: I have
nothing to say."
New York, Nov. 9.���Bar silvor,
60.',.,; Mexican dollars, 47.
Copper, firm; brokers' price, $21.
50; exchange, $13.6% to $12.75.
Lead, quiet and steady; brokors'
price, $8.50; exchange, $3.15 to
Tin, quiet; Straits, $18.80 to $18.50;
plates steady.
Four  Murderers  Sentenced to Death
in One  Week.
London, Nov. 9.���One requires to go
a long way baok to recall auother occasion when in one week London
alone has had four murder trials resulting iu death sentences. It is almost unprecedented in this city, where
juries who bold the lives of unfortunates in their hands usually are inclined to seek some loophole by which
the prisoner may at least escape the
gallows. Undoubtedly the most startling of tlio four death sentences was
that of Dr. Whitmarsh, wbo performed
an illsgal operation upon a girl from
tbo effeots of which she died. When
a few months ago Dr. Collins, a well
known society doctor, waB sent to
prison for several days for a similar
offence, the judge characterized tho
crime as a horrible one which must bo
checked. Cases of this kind wero becoming too frequent. A warning hint
was thrown out that future offenders
might be dealt with even more severely. So it turned out. In Dr.
Collins case the crime was ouly manslaughter. Dr.; Wbitmorsh's case was
called murder for which tbo penalty
is banging.
The Loudon police lately havo been
busying themselves with more than
their wonted activity dealing with the
'' Hooligans," a lot of scoundrels who
go about in bunds robbing and maltreating people even in broad daylight
leaving them lying, in many cases, almost dead. The '' Hooligans,'' created
quite a tcare. It was a difficult, not
to say dangerous job, which the police had undertaken. Nevertheless,
they seem to have secured all tbe leaders, or most of them. Dnring tho last
week the papers have contained no
"Hooligan gang," stories. THE MINER, THURSDAY,  NOVEMBER io, 1898.

Only a few more weeks lie between
us and municipal election day and all
those who wish to have their names
upon the voters' lists should lose no
time in taking the necessary steps.
The fiTSt of these is to pay the road
tax. We would again impress upon
citizens that^unless this tax be paid
the ratepayer's name will not appear
on the list, no matter if all other taxes
have been paid. The time allowed oit-
izens in which to make payment of
the road or poll tax expires on December 1, but why it should not extend to
within a week of election day it
would be hard to say. The payment
of this tax confers the right to vote on
anyone over twenty-one years of age
who has been six months in the municipality ; and practioally it is the
extension ot manhood suffrage, for a
consideration. All citizens who have
the interest of tbis growing city at
heart should pay the tax and get their
names upon the list, so that they may
be in a position when eleotion day
comes to select for the city a mayor
aud council that will transact the
city's business in a businesslike way
and creditably represent it at all
We are glad to see tbat the discussion ol the smelting of lead ores in
British Columbia so fully dealt with
in The Minor u short time ago by Mr.
Hugh Sutherland, a geutloman who
has given the subject much study, has
aroused the press of the province to
consideration of tbe question, which is
a most important ono to the miners
and mine owners of British Columbia.
Among other journals that have dealt
with the matter is tbo B. C Mining
Critic of Vancouver, wbicb does not
agree witb Mr. Sutherland that government aid to the industry could be applied in the samo way as aid is to encouraging dairying in eastern Canada.
If the Critic will read Mr. Sutherland's
interview which be gavo to this paper, it will seo that that gentleman
merely put forth the suggestion aB one
of the alternatives to choose should
reciprocity of trado in tbis product
between the United States and Canada
not be agreed upou. He advanced
none of the alternatives as a certain
remedy for the disabilities wliich .exist, but put tbem forth as suggestions,
and good ones, for discussion, leaving
tho wholo question open. Probably
what will bo tho outcome if Canada
does not secure from tho States reciprocal trade in lead products, is reciprocity of tariffs by which the snme
duties will be imposed by Canada ns
are imposed by the United States.
Tho Critic's assertion that Mr. Sutherland is iu error in bis flgtiros of the
quantity of load consumed in Canada
iB wroug. Mr. Sutherland quoted from
tho report of the British Columbia
minister of mines, who places the lend
consumption of Canada at from 24,-
000 to 25,000 tons annually nnd tho
geological department of Canada reports the samo quantities. Tho Critic's
critic must have based his assertion
on the Trado and Navigation returns
of threo years ngo, Biuco wliich time
the consumption of lead produots in
Oanada has moro than doubled But
this is beside the main question nt
issue, which should not bo obscured
by discussions likely to lead off iu
other directions. What tlio people
want to know is how best to secure
for themselves tho profits of tbe lead
industry which now go abroad, and
suggestions as to means when coming
from sources of authority aro valuable.
If Menier, the Paris chocolate man,
whoBo arbitrary rule in the island of
AnticoBti has given rise to much complaint, were an Englishman, ho
would not And so many champions
amoug Freuch Canadian newspapers
as Menior finds. In the first place an
Englishman, aud in that term is included all Britishers, would not
adopt the courso   Monior hus  pursued
in compelling deference from the di n-
izens of the island, but would manage
his estate far differently; and in the
second place, it is doubtful if a Britisher would be allowed by government
to ride rough shod over the peasantry
as Menier is reported to have dono.
But the chocolate manufacturer happens to be Freuch and any discussion
of his methods in English newspapers
must be regarded as attacks upou tbe
race, and to be so accused does uot do
in Qnebeo, where to be a Frenchman
at the present time means something
politically. Therefore when La Patrie; Hon. Mr. Tarte's paper, comes
out in defence of Menier it oreates no
surprise. That was to be expected.
Yet it will strike freeborn people as
very odd that a foreigner such as thc
chocolate man is, can come into a
British colony, buy a large island aud
enact certain laws for the government
of his kingdom. It strikes us that the
government should give Mr. Menier
and his methods some attention.
merely to ascertain whether or not
Canadian citizens and British subjects
have any right on the island of Anticosti whatever.
The results in the states of the
American union that hold their elections in November, so far as they
are known ot present, amply vindicate
the administration of President McKinley. The opponents of the republican party, after the declaration of
war with Spain took pains to point
out that the war was not a popular
one and when the people came to
reckon up the oost, the McKinley
administration would be subjected to
criticism that would tell heavily against
it when tbe elections came round.
These predictions have not been verified. On the contrary, in one in-
Btance at least, the war assisted a republican candidate to victory. This
was Col. Theodore Roosevelt, of New
York, who carried his state over Vau
Wyok, the democrat, by a vory large
vote. According to ull calculations
tbe democrats should have won and it
was believed that they would win, but
the commander of the Rough Riders,
after conducting a creditable campaign in Cuba, showed that he was
able to lead bis party to success in
New York. It was undoubtedly Mr.
Rooveselt's war record, brief aa it
was, tbat elected him and bis election
was as strong n vote of confidence in
the Washington administration as any
ministry could wish for. The democratic nominee was a strong mau in
many ways, but he bad not the sentiment behind him which was Mr.
Roosevelt's strength, nud that sentiment approved of the punishment
that congress inflicted upon Spain,
even though the cost was g.'eat.
To tho Editor of The Nelson Miner i
Sir:���The recent discharge by the
minister of mines of Mr. Sober
Thompson, from the post ion of acting
mining recorder and ;:oK oommission-
er's clerk for the Bloohlt Mining Division, without cause or reason boini
assigned, camo as a surprise to nil
who know him.
Mr. Thompson during the two yenrs
and more in wliich be has strvcii tin
mining public of the Slocan, has b\
his promptitude in performance (,f
duty his capability and his unitorifi
courtesy, proved himself in every way
qualified tto fill his position.
Will you by publishing this letter
in your widely rend columns of The
Miner give expansion to the opinion
unanimously expressed by nil of the
many to whom I have spoken in tho
subject which opinion is my own;
that the discharge of tbis competent,
honest and oonrteous official without
just cause calls for vigorous protest
against and unqualified condemnation
of Iho action taken, which is apparently a violation of the most esseutiul
principle involved in the proper administration of our civil service. Yours

referred for an account to be taken.
The defendants, sub-contractors on the

amount of monoy into court. After
listening to evidence for two or three
hours, the registrar found that thero

been wasted. G. L. Lennox wus for

Proposed Extension of the
Great Northern.
Arrangements Made IWhioh Will ^Ensure
Victory���Description   of the
Proposed Extension-
A special from Now York to the
Minneapolis Times of last Tuesday
Jas. J. Hill is busy with extensive
schemes for the construction of new
linen. Although ho omitted to take
the Great Northern stockholders into
his confidence, the speculators iu Wall
street havo insight into his designs
and lo that may be attributed the rocont decline iu the company's shares.
The financial sharps look with distrust
upon new projects of whioh, however,
they have only fractional knowledge.
Mr. Hill's immediate purposes aro:
First���To build into the Boundary
creek country into British Columbia
next summer, a line from Nelson, B.
C. This is the revivification of D.
0. Oorbin's plans of lust yonr, and of
which paragraphs have been appearing
in Canadian und American newspapers of the Inst 10 days. The 22,r> miles
of road that the Great Northern got
from Mr. Corbin, by acquiring the
Spokano Falls & Northorn railway
from Spokano to Nelson, B. 0., were
taken with tho idea of exocuting Corbin 's plan of penetrating the Boundary creek country. The defeat at Ottawa last wintor of the effort to get a
charter from tho Domiuiou government is familiar history. A charter
will be seenred by Mr. Hill this winter
so he has quietly assured certain interests here, and that everything has
been arranged so carefully that the
Canadian Pacific will be unablo to prevent tho granting of the charter. In
the meantime the Canadian Pacific is
building its branch into the Boundary
creek country as fast as it can, from
Trail, B. C.
Second���To construct a lino from
Seattle to Portland, largo portions of
which wore graded by the Union Pacifio aud Great Northern jointly.
Third���To begin nt Anaconda,
Mont., in connection with tho Butto.
Anaconda & Pacific railway, and extend by the niost foasible route from
Root river, down tho river through
Lolo pass, theuco down Clearwater
aud Snake rivers to the Columbia at
Ainsworth, Wash. From Ainsworth
tho road will run either down tho Columbia river, connect with Mr. Hill's
Portland lino, or via tho Corolitz  pass

to the vicinity to Tacoma. This line
making a now outlet for the three
states, is intended to fill out the Great
Northern system wost of the Rocky
Iu case a satisfactory deal can te
mado with the O. R. & N. Co.. Mr.
Hill's Anaconda and Columbia river
projection may connect with the Oregon at Wallala junction. The opposition that has appeared to the construction by the Northorn Pacific of wbat is
known us the Missoula & Pasco cut
off, really emanates from the Great
Northern and not from the 0. R. & N.
'Master and Man" at the
���The Temnerature Defied.
Iinst night "Master and Man" was
put on at the Skating Rink by. the
Bittner company. Tho audience was
uot quito so large as usual owing to
the cold and miserable weather, but
by assiduous attention'to their numerous stoves the management succeded
in keeping tbo building warm and
Humpy Logan a despicable cowardly
villain, wan most artistically played
by W. J. Fredericks. A ^flner impersonation of a mean conscience-stricken
wretch could hardly be imagined. W.
W. Bittner played tho cynical, heartless capitalist Robert Carlton, giving
a vory finished exhibition. The part
of Jack Walton the much abused inventor and father, wob taken by J.
Waldron in a way which confirmed
tbe high reputation he has earned.
E. B. Kelly as James Burleigh, the
workman who wns robbed of his
wife, treated tho audienco to a very
foroibl* piece of acting. Chris Moran
wns most amusing as Tom Bradv the
Irishman, as was Ed. JJMitchell as
Crispin the dude. Low Rose made
the most of bis opportunities ns Wil-
lett the policeman.
The part of Hester, who married
Jack, was played by Miss Mattie
Choate. Miss Choate found full scope
for bor powers in the varied misfortunes of tho much tried heroine. Mrs.
Ella Bittner, ns Lntty, acted, with
all her usual grace, and Miss Milly
Stevens, nortrayul of Mrs. Brady was
fully apppreoiiited by the audience.
The part of Jackie was very prettily
played by Mazeppa Kelly, a charming
little girl of eight.
Among tho specialties was a song
very woll snug by Ed. Mitchell. Chris
Moran also introduced some funny
gags and a song which was enthusiastically encored, and L/jjMcClellaud
scored another success with his Germnn dialect song and clogj dnnco. The
two latter came on again tngother and
were deservedly encorod for clever
song and danco work.
After the play Mr. Bittner announced that he liad been asked to repeat '' La Belle Marie,'' tho play
whicli so successful the 'other flight.
In order to gunge the public sentiment, in tho matter Mr. Bittner snid
that if BO peoplo would take seats for
"Ln Belle Mario" at W. F. Teetzel's
drug storo, bo would put on Jthat
piece on Saturday night instoad of
"a Country Farm."
The play tonight is "Our Boys".

The   Hundredth   Will Recruit in Canada for  Certain Reasons.
Toronto, Nov. 9.���The following
is a speoial cable to the Evening Telegram, dated London, Nov. 9.���Your
correspondent learns from the war
office that there is nothing particularly
recent in the recruiting, order of the
100th regiment. Royal Canadians, in
Canada. Sir Ralph Henry Knox, permanent under secretary of state for
war, said today that the order to recruit the 100th in Canada was issued
some time ago, and for the reason tbat
a battalion of the regiment was stationed there. No new order has been
issued. He expressed the opinion that
the less said about such matters the
better. Months ago, Baid he, Lord
Landsdowne, secretary of sfate. for
war, contemplated the improvement of
the defects of all the colonies, but the
complications which have arisen in
Europe caused people to draw wrong
conclusions regarding the present preparations for defence..

Ex-Representative Waddell presided
and read a series of resolutions reciting the determination of the white
citizens to forever rule the eity and
to commence the work immediately,
declaring that hereafter white labor
should be given preference over colored, and calling for the banishment of
Alex Manley, the negro newspaper
publisher, who printed an objectionable editorial recently. An amendment was offered calling on the mayor,
chief of police and board of aiderman
to vacate their, offices now instead of
waiting until their terms expire in
March. These resolutions were referred
to a committee and while awaiting
its report, several speeches were made,
one of the speakers, representative-
elect, Bellamy, urging tbe expulsion of
Manley in 82 hours, but counselling
moderation in other respects.
The commission reported its conclusions favoring expulsion of Mauley as proposed and urging the employment of white labor us far as possible,
the resolution reciting that the mayor
and chief of polico having demonstrated their incompetency, and their
continuance in ollice being a menace,
they should resign. The report was
unanimously adopted and a committee
of 25 was appointed to carry into effect
the resolutions adopted. It is understood that Mauley haB already left the
city. The mayor and chief of police
say they will not resign as the resolutions cnll for, but will serve out tlieir

report never got into the newspapers

"Mainly about people," "even went

Efforts   Being   -Made     to   Settle   the
Doukhobors in Amerioa.
Chicago, 111., Nov. 9.���Miss Jane
Adams, of Hull House, Chicago, bas
accepted a place on the committee appointed to bring members of the Russian sect of Doukhobors to tbis
country nnd to Canada to establish colonies. Her interest in the movement
which has monopolized the time and
energy of Count Tolstoi during the last
five years assumed a definite form
about eight mouths ago. It was when
the admirers of Tolstoi, the world
ovc, were planning to celebrate his
birthday and he asked them rather to
add their influence nnd contributions
to a movement iu behalf of the perse
outed seot in the far away land.
Since that timo.Miss Adams has been
raising money in this country for a
general fund. The Doukhobors
are a sect similar to (he quakers, opposed to war and fighting. Because of
their religious beliefs tliey have, it is
said, suffered persecutions, have been
forced into tlio army and compelled
to march continually until they died
from exposure. Aylmer Maude a disciple of Tolstoi, was engaged in the
business in Moscow and became interested in these people. Through his
influence aud euergy, added to that of
Tolstoi an attempt at colonization in
Canada was begun. Tho czar was
bombarded with petitions until he
finally consented to tlieir leaving the
country. In Canada each man is to be
given 1(10 acres of land and a shed to
livo in until houses can be built nud
provisions for a time at least. Maude
was iu Chicago recently and is now
in Khineback, N. Y., making preparations for a colony there. Luter ho
will return to England where he will
superintend the colonization of a portion of tlio refugeos outside of London.
According to the edict all of the soct
Who leave the couutry must get out
wiihin two years and it is to hasten
the exodus that the committee was appointed iu Philadelphia.
A Few Extracts From T. P. O'Connors, New Paper,
The Queen hns again taken n Btand
against divorce and divorced persons.
T. P. O'Connor in his new paper,
"Mainly about people," says: "The
Queen intimates that the pronouncement of the part of tliu prelates might
have been written in stronger terms
as 'she is totally averse to divorce under any circumstances whatsoever."
Her Majesty' is willing to admit that
in no institution are there more people
wronged than iu marriage, nevertheless, her belief is that uu infinitely
more Batisfaotory state would arise
were marriage made indissoluble
both by church andjstate. The'Queen
hus no objection to udicial separation,
her strong disapproval of divorce being due to the liberty which it imparts to tbo people, to marry agnin,
and to the re-marriage of divorced people, no matter whnt the grouudB of divorce, sho is "unalterably aud moat
strongly opposed." This is the first
official expression Her majesty --.has
given to her view ou the subject.
"Mainly About People," also says
there haB been excitement among certain of the Queen's subjects over the
fact that lawn tennis bus been played
by her majesty's grandchildren in the
grounds at Osborne ou Sunday.    There
