all German credit institutions. There
may not be a breakdown, but the ond
of the year will be a trying time for
Germany. The article urges the great
joint stock banks of England, by keeping heavier balances idle than is their
habit, to  keep up the   money market.
For What the U. S. Did For
The Disposition is to Give the Washington
Authorities Liberty to Develop
Their  Polioy.
Havana, Oot. 81.���Advices received
here from Santa Cruz Dol Sur say that
a majority of the representatives of
the Cnban army at tbe meetings held
there are iu favor of the dissolution of
the Cuban insurgent government and
the appointment of a commission to
go to Washington for the purpose of
thanking the American government,
for its intervention in favor of the Cubans and to put themselves unconditionally at the disposition ofthe Washington authorities sn as to enable the
latter to develop their programme without hindrance. The Cubans ure nlso
said to be in favor of the disbniulment
of the insurgent army.
Santiago he Cuba, Oot. 81.���Senor
Baltonome Masso, president of the
Cuban provisional administrative
counoil, has issued an address to the
delegates, now in attendance at the
military assembly at Sauta Cruz, in
whioh he reviews the oousidorations
incident npon the Cubans soliciting
the help of the United Stntos and indicates there was a future policy. The
address is as follows : The Cubans accepted the assistance of America, although not knowing exactly what
were the American aims, just as tliey
wonld have accepted help from any
.country in their fight against Spain.
As the ooutest progressed, tho Cubans in the field were gratified to
hear of a Bolemn declaratiou by the
United States congress, regarding tho
intentions of America and the
path it would follow in the SpauiBh-
Ameriean war. Amorica came to
our aid to compel Spain to relinquish
her sovereignty ovof Ouba in order
that the Cubans ini#it be plncod as
promptly as possible tn possession of
the island, might assume the administration of its affairs und have a gov
eminent of thoir own.
Therefore, the Cubans agreed to
co-operate with tho Americans to
obey tho ordors issrihd by American
generals and to help in nil possible
ways to establish a Cuban governiAei{t
when aver tho Amerioans took possession. Though Amorica did not recognize tho government of the Cubans iu
terms it was woll understood thnt the
Cubans wonld uot on that account
aliamlon their organization, hut ttyit,
on the contrary, the time would como
when sneh recognition would be
granted. Indood, it was assorted to
our Cuban representatives by one ot
the most distinguished members of the
United States senate, that iu order to
do away with any obstacle thnt
might hinder tho United Stares in gtt-
iug into tho fight in tho cause of Cuban independence, recognition of n
Cuban government must come later.
Nevertheless, it has not been possible to establish direot relations between
the Cnban and American governments
for the transaction of publio business,
althongh the general character of our
relations throughout the war was
friendly. Bnt wo hnvo now reached a
time when, even more than iu the
days of fighting, it is incumbent upon
all Cubans to show truo patriotism
and, while making every expression
of gratitude to America for having
given freedom and -independence, to
make prompt arrangements for paying
off the Cubans now in arms and for
getting the country into working
At the End of the Year She Will Have
to Meet Heavy Obligations.      ���
London, Oot. 81.���The Standard-in
its oity article says that betwoen now
and the end of the year many millions
of pounds sterling, borrowed in London and Paris foryuse in sustaining
German industrial and commercial
speculations, may have ��to to be paid

Mr. Justice Martin   Grants  Leave   to
Appeal to  the Full Court.
Victoria. Oct. 81.���Justice Martin
today granted the application on be
half of the City of Nelson, for leave
to appeal to the full court from the
decision of Justice Walkem, quashing
tho Nelson Electric Lighting by-law,
aulhnii/ing the purchase of a plant
from a company of which Mayor Houston wae a director.
The Premier Has a High   Opiuion  of
the Minister of the Interior.
Ottawn, Oot. 81.���The Citizen today
says Lieutenant Governor Patterson,
of Manitoba, is going to retire and
Hon. Clifford Sifton is to take his
place as governor.
The premier, seen in regard to tho
above, replied: "Yon can say there
is not even a shadow of truth in the
statement. Mr. Sifton is too good a
man nud too efficient a minister of
the interior to dispense with his services. "
Yokohama, Oct. 81.���The whole
cabinet has resigned, the ministers
being unable to agree npon the question of filling the portfolio of education. Thus the ,0rst attempt at party
govi rnment in Japan has proved a failure. It is probable that the next cabinet will be a conlition of liberals (nml
clan leaders.

Chief W. J. Thompson uud the members of the Nelson fire brigade celebrated Hallowe'en last night by visit

The difficulty of catobing the individual Chinamen for the purpose of
colloctiing the tax Suggestod to tho
minds of the city authorities that
the best and quiokefit way to get the

Accordingly about 8 o'clock'tho chief
and 10 or 18 of tho stalwart members
of the fire brigade proceeded fo the
houses whore most of the Chinamen
cougregate nightly to play fan tan,

In tho meantime the babble of tongues

The great majority of tho Chinamen
protessted that they had no money but

neither money nor frionds and theso
were ordered to an inner room, to
await the decision of tho collector.       '
The houses facing Vernon street and
the wiishhouses at the rear were each
visited in turn with the result that
about $1G0 was collected. Several of

Emperor William Will Return
Jerusalem, Oot. 81.���It is understood
that their German majesties will remain here for some days. At seven
o'clock yesterday morning Empress
Augusta Victoia attended the opeuiug
of a German orphanage in a vineyard uear Bethohem. Their majesties have spent considerable time amid
the scenes connected with our Lord's
nativity. They have visited the pool
of Bethesda, the traditional site of the
Ascension und the garden of Geth-
semane and have enjoyed the magnificent view of th<* Dead Sea and plain
of Jerichoto be had from the summit
of the Mount of Olives.
Attired simply nud like au ordinary
tourist, tho empress has charmed her
hosts by her unaffected grace of manner. Emperor William too, had appeared as a simple pilgrim, not courting auy demonstration. Nevertheless
the visitors have everywhere been
accompanied by picturesque throngs,
for the most part silent, in accordance with oriental custom, consisting
of swarthy BedouinB. fierce looking
Kurds, Jews, Levantines, and Euro-
penus, a heterogenons mixture that

are ascribed for the curtailment of the
tour, bnt it is said the main causes
are the excessive heat nnd tho discomfort of travel. Nearly 40 horses have
ulreadv succumbed and tho Emperor
has, therefore, decided to return to
Ihiilu from Jaffa by the sea. It is not
believod that he will go to  Damascus.

fiually rosouod, she was unconsci-jjpg.
Today she is confined to her room,

London, Nov. 1.���The Paris correspondent of tho Times, dilating upon
the fuct that the Dreyfus affair occurred uuder M. Dupuy's former'pre-
mi-jrship and when President Faure
wns minister of murine,, says: 'It

Loudon, Nov. 1.���Most of the papers
are full of the alleged wnr prepara-
iona, despite the undoubted fact that
the authorities are doing their best to
prevent publication aud even denying
statements that have nlrendy appeared.
Yesterday a sadden ordor was received at Dover for au experimental
mobilization of the defence forces.
All the heights nnd forts were smartly
occupied iu a manner giving full satisfaction. The arsenal at Woolwich is
working until 11 o'clock every night
the government having given large orders for guns, searchlights and other
navnl equipment.
The British Channel squadron hns

The advices from Paris in the special despatches this morning add little
to what wns already known regarding
the situation at Fashoda. It is believed that Captain Buraticr is Inking
only verbal instructions for Major
Marchand. The idea prevails at the
French capital tbat Count Mouravieff,
the Russian foreign minister, while
there on his recent visit, promised
Russinn Bupport in the re-opening of

Major Mnrchnnd will be instructed to
fall back and maintain his occupation
of all Bnhr-El-Ghuzal posts.
London. Nov. 1.���The Daily Mail
this morning publishes no news regarding England's preparations, explaining that silence is due to a letter
from tho war office nsking it not to
publish "unythiug which might be
useful to a possible enemy. "
"We intended to ascertain todny"
snys the Dnily Mnll, "from the war
office and tho ndniirn'lity exnetly what
kind of news it would be permissible
to publish.''
The Dnily Mail confirms the reports
of unexampled activity at the French
dockyards, potably at Toulon, whero
the coast forts havo been experimenting with\ melinite shells against an
old gunboat.
London, Nov. 1.���The Cairo correspondent of the Daiy . Mail snys an

Given time and n sufficiency of officers, Kngland could added to her

At tbe meeting of tho Banker's   Association held in Toronto recontly, Mr.
W. R. Wilkio, governor  of tho Imperial bank and  president of the association, in tho opeuing address, predicted
that   the   output    of  the    Kootonay
and Yukon  in   gold   in  1811!)   would
amount to $18,000,000.   Probably there
is no better  informed  mau about tho
resources of the country  generally and
their  possibilities   thau  Mr.   Wilkie,
who has  Bources   of  information  not
open to all men.    Boing a banker nud,
therefore, a gold  man   it wus not surprising that Iio   should give his attention to gold more than   to silver.    Yet
the silver production of   tliis proviuce
in the years to come will be far moro
important  to Canada  and the   world
than   the  gold.   With  silver    at    a
standard   valuo   consistent  with    its
conimereiul uses   among  tho   nations,
the mines of the Kootenay would mako
British Columbia   tho richest area ou
earth and  would   directly   and   indirectly   benoflt    millions.    We    know
that tho question  of the appreciation
of    silver    is  a  vexed    ouo   which
has led to marked   political  divisious
and caused much   alarm,   not   to  sny
dread, among the people of the United
States,yot it is plain that it is a simple
one which could be easily dealt  with.
It is morely a matter of  publie   confidence.    But at tho   present   time  tho
gold party is iu the ascendant, both in
this country and in Great Britain nnd
those who hold strong  views   on  the
ailvor question must bide  their   timo.

Yesterday evening the Bittuer
Theatre company opened a wefk's en-
cagemeut at tho Skating Rink beforo n
lurge audience. Groat pains hud been
taken to render the building water
tight, weathor proof and warm, and
with complete suecoss. Everybody
was comfortable, nnd most important
of nil, thore wero no draughts. The
management are to bo congratulated on
the improvements effected since the
Liudloy company were here.
Tho play was "The Galley Slave."
Tho first act opened iu Venice, where
Phoebe Gnv and her daughter Cicely,
Cicely Blaine aud Dr. Oliphant nr-
rive from Paris. Sidney Norcot Frank ���
Iin Fittz nnd Wesley Napier aro nlrendy
at the hotel. It was soon made evident that Cicely and Siduey were
lovers, and that it only required the
lady's consent for Fitz and Psycho to
be in tho same relation. Baron do
Bois. who followed tho party from
Puris, soon appears ou the scene and
proposes to Cicely in due form iu n
broken English which left it iu doubt
whether he wus ronlly French or Italian. After a most amusing conversa-
tiou, the Baron is rejected. Directlv
afterwards Frauciscn appears on tho
sce.no for tho first time inquiring for
oue Antoino   whom no one knows.
Wo next soo them in Home, by
which timo Psyche nnd Fittz aro engaged.
Thoy induce Dr. Oliphant to plead
their cause with her mother, Unt'or-
tnnate his overtures are misunderstood, and before ho knows where he
is he is engaged to the widow.
Shortly afterwards the Baron makes
another proposal and he is refused
and Francisco comes on the scene and
tells Cicely that tho latter's lover is
roully her husband. Cicely convinced
by oiroumstantial evidence believed
her und declines to si*i�� Sidney :*au;
Next we "find them iu Puris on the
wedding day of tlie two couples,Cicely
having accepted the Baron. After
the oeremony Sidney appears nud in a
very -powerful scone convinces Cicely
she wnl uiistnkon, tho other people
come ia aud the curtain falls on an
offeetivg mise-811-scone. ?
Subsequently FraueisCa is found
in prisou, couvicted of stealing bread,
Explauutions ensue, nnd the Baron
is given the choico of prison or giving
half his estato to Frauciscn. Ho
choccs tho latter, and things arrange
themselves happily.

The  Hew  Oemetry Fenoe���Oity
Fire Apparatus-
At the regular meeting of tlio city
council there were present Mayor
Houston, in the chair, aud Alileruian
Hillyer, Gilker, Madden, Malone
and Whalley. The minutes of tho last
meeting were read and amended to
permit P. Burns & Co. to dump earth
on the whole width of Josephine
The question of fire protection was
then discussed, and the mayor stated
that the representative of a Toronto
rubber hose company, who also represented ilro apparatus firms iu Toronto
and Brantford, was in town. The
mayor had communicated with those
firms, aud it was decided to await*
their answers before taking any step
in the matter.
Tho mayor then said that tho lowest
bidder for the removal of the bodies
from the old cemetery hnd baoked
down and J. Aunable, the next lowest, had taken the contract at the
same figure. The contract was signed
on Saturday.
A number of applications for the post
of city inspector of the removal were
then read. It was agreed that two
inspectors would bo necessary, and, on
motion of Aldrman Hillyor, it was
decided that the mayor he authorized
to make tho appointments when the
time came. Several applications for
the position of caretaker of the new
oemetery were also received aud referred to the next meeting, though tbe
council seemed to bo rather in favor of
retaining the old grave digger so long
as he gave satisfaction.
A letter was read from the Allen
Bros, offering to huy the stone now
lying on Ward street for fit) cents a
yard. As the council considered that
the stono would be needed by the city
next year, and could not be replaced
at that figure it was decided to refuse
the offer.
It was decided that thoso who paid
their October electric light rates by

The city uigiuoor then reported that
a plain board fence for the now cemetery should consist of five boards, ono
footsix inches, with posts eight foet
apart. This would entail 155,000

engineer was instructed to get out estimates for the next meeting of tho
comparative cost per foot of n board
fence aud a picket fence, and also the
cost of a coretaker cottage, tool shed,
and a building in which service could
be held.
After Alderman Hillyer had stated
that complaints had reached him of
the stato of tho grado ou Ward street,
.and it had been decided to look into
the matter, the Council adjourned uutil next Monday.

the meat safe outside the principal
