France Could Make no Stand
Against England-
Trance MuBt Beat a Retreat From Fa'hoda.
The Irreparable Blunibar the Be-
publio Hae Made-
Paris, Oot. 26.���M. Paul De Cassag-
nac in a remarkable article on the
Fashoda question in the Antorite
writes: '' How conld we make a stand
against England in case of war? She
possesses means of gripping us every
where in onr colonies and in onr naval
cities along our open coasts, whereas,
wo cannot lay onr hands on her anywhere. She could make short work
of onr fleet. War with England wonld
pnt ns in the position of Spain towards
America. We should fight heroically,
but we should be beuwni. * (j.ie*-t*i-
miral Oervera is already to thl front.
It is admiral Fourneir, who enjoys
the blind confidence of tho repnblioan
government. It is not. alas, Santiago
that we should lack. Later on we
should have to pay the hill with Algeria or Indo China.
"Therefore, it is materially nnd
morally, forbidden to think of war.
This would be madness, blindness.
Nobody goes to oertaiu disaster with
his eyes open. Thero still remains
the other alternative, to beat a retreat
and we shall not escape it. It is not
the evacuation of Fnshoda that constitutes our low, the republic having
already committed the irreparable
blunder of coldly abandoning Egypt
to England. It ill becomes her today
to quibble about this or that portion
of the Nile valley which in reality
would be useless to us.
Paris. Oct. 26.���General Lord Herbert Kitchener, commander of the Anglo-Egyptian forces in the Soudan,
and Captain Baratier, the French officer, who brings Major Marchand's
despatches from Fashoda, arrived
hero at 10 o'clock this evening. Gen-
eral|Kitchener left the railway station
unnoticed. Capt. Baratier received an
ovation from hundreds of members of
the���patriotic league and others. M.
Marchell Herbert, a member of the
chamber of deputies, on behalf of the
partiotio league, presented Captain Baratier with a gold medal. The friendly
demonstrations continued until Capt.
Baratier reached his residence. There
was no further iucident.
Paris, Oct. 26.���The  Soir  hears  in
diplomatic circles that France is  prepared to evacuate Fashoda,   with  the
reservation that she shall receive somo
1 compensation,   to  be  arranged bere-
, after.   This result,   says  the Soir,   is
tho outcome of a  new   argument  ad-
I faiiced by Lord Salisbury, to the effect
1 that as the dispatch  of   the Marchand
I minion was not notified to Great Brit-
I niu in accordance with  custom, Great
I Britain's is entitled to dispute the majors right to hold the   territory   occupied.    "As the Quay d'Onay is  thus
placed in a false position through  the
fault of M. Hanotaux, the predecessor
of M. Delcasse, tho latter is forced to
recognize  the justice  of  the British
I objection.''
I Many Prominent Men Speak on the
Fashoda Affair.
London, Oct. 20.��� This evening has
|witnessed a great outpouring of ora-
itory on the Fashoda question.
I Speeches were made at various places
Iby the Hon. Charles T. Ritchie, president of the board of trade. Sir John
IGorst, vice president of the committee
lof council and conservative member
���of parliament for Cambridge Univer-
Isity, Mr. George Wyndhain, under
laecretary of  state  for war; Lord Ed
mund Fitzmaurice, nnd Mr. Alfred
Lyttleton, liberal member of parliament for Leamington. All recognized
the gravity of the situation but declared that even at the risk of war it
was impossible for Lord Salisbury to
recede from his position.
Lord Salisbury held the usual foreign office reception this afternoon
French Ambassador Baron de Courcel,
wns conspicuously absent. It resulted,
therefore, that whatever proposals
he bears from Paris were communicated yesterday to Sir Thomas Anderson, permanent under secretary of
state for foreign affairs.
A report was in circulation in the
oity this evening that the Rothchilds
had been informed that Franco had
afned to evacuate Fashoda, but the
foreign office has no information on
this subject. The activity in naval
preparations continues on both sides
of the channel.
London. Oct. 26. ���The keen desire to
hear the views of the liberal leader
in the House of Commons, Sir William Harcourt, on the Fashoda question was satisfied this evening by his
speech at Aberystwith, Wales. Sir
William Harcourt said it was the urgent duty of everyone, without regard to political differences, to support the government in maintaining
tho rights of the empire in tho present
crisis, n crisis "specially dangerous,
owing to the unexampled situation
in France."
Montroal, Oot. aO.-pThe French
CaaaiiCn papers arc f-r'iA-r '���riticisiug
England over its courso in Egypt.
La Patria, the government organ,
states that though they were loyal
snbjeots of the empire, they were
Frenchmen also.
La Minerva says: "Tho English
do not admit either discussion or arbitration. They simply ordered the recall
of Marchand, nud if this demand is
not complied with they are ready to
make war. This reminds one of
the procedure of the United States
against Spain. Right is nothing to
the Anglo-Saxon from the moment
he is certain he is the stronger.''
London, Oct. 27.���The Cairo correspondent of the Daily Mail telegraphs
a curious report that Major Marchand
has been requested to withdraw from
Fashoda by the way he reached it.
They Thank the TJ- S For Assistance and
Wish the Americans to Withdraw
as Soon aB Possible
Santiago de Cuba, Oct. 26. ���Major
Pettit, in command of the United
States troops at Manzanillo, and military governor of the ci ty, telegraphed
today that the Cuban General Rios
offers 2000 armed men to assist Americans in preserving order, merely asking rations in return. General Wood
sent the following reply: "Certainly
not. The only conditions on which
rations are to be given are the complete disarmoment nnd disbandment of
the Cubans."
The Cuban General Maya Rodrigues
virtually voices the sentiment of the
Cuban army when ho said: '' We
thank tho U. S. for the assistance it
has given us, but the time has now arrived when Cubans should be placed
in the highest office; and should prepare
to take over the island on the departure of the Spanish.''
Cuban extremists here are jubilant
at the reported attitude of the Cubau
assembly at Santa Cruz del Sur, where
the delegates, while expressing their
gratitude to the Americans, practically
demand a distinctive Cuban goveru-
emnt. The Cuban moderates, on the
other hand, regret this stand, thinking
it best for the United States anthori-
ties to continue in charge of affairs
for a year at least, so as to get things
going and to prevent any complications with foreign governments. The
foreign consuls are considering the advisability of appealing to the powers to
prevent a too hasty recognition of the
Cuban government.
But There is Suppressed Excitement on All Sides.
President Faure is Taking Things Easily
And is Looking Around For Material For His Cabinet.
Paris Oct. 26. ���Although there is evidence of suppressed excitement on all
sides here, there has been no disturbance of public order up to the present
time. The police and municipal
guards are out iu strong force and they
will not permit the crowds to assume
dangerous strength, but the situation
was eagerly discussed by excited
groups in the streets.
President Faure this morning received in audience Senntor Lou bolt, president of the chnmber of deputies. It is
the intention of M. Faure to form a
cabinet as rapidly as possible, and the
names of M. Ribot, and de Freycinet
are the most prominently mentioned
in Qpnnoction with the premiership.
During the afternoon M. Faure consulted with M. Leygues, vice president of the chamber of deputies, who
advised the president of the republic
to form a concentration cabinet and to
include among its members M. Ribot,
and Dupuys as the principal ministers.
In the lobbies of the chamber of deputies today the deputies of all shades of
opinion expressed the conviction that
M. Delcasse should remain at the head
of the foreign office, in order to assure
the continuity of the Fashoda negotiations.
General Chanoine is the fifth minister ot tx** who has 3#��lnr*��l hiuoeeJf
absolutely convinced of the guilt of
Dreyfus and the third who has resigned ou that account. Yesterday
was the first time General Chanoine
ever sat on the ministerial bench and
his colleagues' knowing that he was
unaccustomed to the tricks of oratorical effects such as M. Deroulede indulged
in, tried vainly to prevent him ascending the tribune. He spoke briefly,
with painful incoherence, and then
literally bolted from the chamber. A
^wpmnn who was leaving the gallery
after the adjournment on being asked
by a deputy how she enjoyed it all,
replied "Immensely. Wasn't it delic-
ous. So much better than the comedie
"Yes" replied the deputy, "and this
is only the beginning.''
Paris, Oct. 26.���A feeling distinctly
peaceful regarding the Fashoda affair
prevails in Paris this evening. President Faure is taking the crisis quietly
aud the belief is stronger tban it was
yesterday that M. Brisson fell because
he wished to fall. It is now rnraored
that General Chanoine resigned the
war office portfolio out of pique at the
refusal of the general state committee
to give bim command of an army
corps. Extraordinary police precautions have been ordered against possible disturbances at the court of cassation tomorrow, when the Dreyfus revision appeal will be heard.
London, Oct. 26.���William Waldorf
Astor writes to the Times denying
the story that he recently won a bet
by giving a dinner to 27 guests seated
around a table cut from a section of a
red wood tree. He says that the section of a tree placed in the grounds of
Clevedon was placed there as an object
of curiosity and was never intended J;o
be used ns a dining table. No bet was
ever made as to the seating capaoity of
the section. Tho whole story wns a deliberate false accusation. He has entered proceedings against tho paper
which published tlie story. Tho account of tho alleged dinner appeared
in the Dailv Mail.
A Resolution Calliug For a Restrictive
Law in the  English Provinces.
Peterboro, Out. Oct, 26��� The following resolution will come np this afternoon for consideration at the Ontario Sabbath School association convention. This convention composed
of Sabbath school workers of all denomination throughout Ontario,
while kuownig that the province of
Quebec gave a very large majority
against prohibition and cried loudly
that she should not be coerced into accepting prohibition, urges upop the
Dominion government that the several provinces that havo a much larger
vote" for prohibition shall not  be   co
erced into continuance of legielatory
sanction of the traffic and hereby demands that the government shall place
on the statute books a law prohibiting
the manufacture, importation, or sale
of intoxicating liquors. Several members of the association have, however,
given notice of their intention to oppose it.
The   Politioal   Situation   at    Madrid
May Delay Proceedings.
Paris, Oct. 26.���The meeting of the
commissioners lasted an hour and fivo
minutes and was adjourned until tomorrow. Both the Spanish and American commissioners were more reticent
after this session than ever before.
The Americans fully appreciate not
only their own serious responsibility,
but also the delicate position of their
Spanish colleagues, to the burden ot
whoso duties here is now added the
critical polictical situation at Madrid,
which may compel the president, of
teh Spanish peace commission, Senor
Montero Rios, who is also president
of the Spanish senate, to leave   Paris.
The Madrid correspondent of the
Temps adds: The result is that an
open crisis seems to have been avoided
until conclusion of the treaty of peace.
In any case this has done away with
tho necessity for an ad interim government which was lately suggested as
likely to be the only solution of pres
ent difficulties.
The   C.   P.   R.   To  Get   Its Share of
Traffic From U. S. Lines.
Buffalo, N. Y., Oct. 26.���D. Mc-
Nicol, of Montreal, passenger trafflo
manager, and E. V. Skinner, general
eastern passenger agent of the Canadian Pacific railway, arrived in Buff-
falo this morning eu route to the
'' What effect, in your opinion, will the
decision of the joint traffic association
case have?" was asked of Mr. McNi-
"It means that another association
or agreement must be formed by the
lines interested which will be legal.
The joint trafflo association was organized principally to assist in the
maintenance of rates and in other
matters arising of that character."
"Is there any possibility of Ontario
local rates being restored?"
"Yes, just as soon as the ofranrt
Trunk and its western connections
confine themselves strictly to tariff
rates. The North Bay agreement has
nothing to do with keeping the Canadian Pacific and Grand Trunk ronds
apart. It was simply a question of accepting terms which wero not agreeable to us that we cancelled our contract to use the North Bay line. You
see, the Canadian Pacific has boen laboring under n boycot on the part of
the American roads. This boycot
was instituted to prevent us from getting any immigration traffic but it
has been raised and I- am now on my
way to Chicago to confer with American lines representatives. Things
will-shape themselves eventually and
we will all live to enjoy the blessings
of restored rates.''

He   Oan Transmit   Power
Without   Wires.
he Distinguished Electrician Says That He
Oan Transmit Power Through the
Air to Any Distanoe.
New York, Oct. 26.���S. Nikola Tes-
la, the electrician, describes in today's
issue of the Electrical Review a possibility in electric power transmission.
His inventions for transmitting elec-
trioity at high pressure over long distances have been successfully applied
at many natural sources of power..
Probably the most important of these
plants in the United States, is at Niagara Falls, which supplies electricity to many largo factories and supplies electric power for running the
trolley lines of the city of Buffalo, 26
miles distant. Tho announcement is
now made that by omploying apparatus
which he had invented capable of generating electricity pressures vastly in
excess of any heretofore used and lo-
oated at the natural sources Of power,
the current can be conducted to a terminal maintained at an elevation
where the rarefied atmosphere is capable of conducting freely the particular current producod; then at a distant, whero the energy is to be used
commercially to maintain a second terminal at about, the same elevation to
attract and receive the current ai d to
convey it to tho earth, through special
means for transforming and utilizing
it. With the article an illustration
is prezcateil si kjv ;������.;;������ .-itrKwiia uf
electricity issuing from a single terminal, giving electrical pressure of
two and a half million volts.
The Electrical Review comments on
Mr. Tesla's novel idea, as follows:
"Tesla now proposes to transmit without the use of wires through the natural medium, tbe earth and air, greater
amounts of power to distances of thousands of miles. This will appear a
dream, a tale from the Arabian Nights
but the extraordinary discoveries Tesla
has made during a number of years of
incessant labor, makes it evident that
his work in this field has passed a
stage of laboratory experiment and is
ready for a practical test on an industrial plan. The.success of his efforts
means that power from such sources as
Niagara will become available in any
part of the world, regardless of distance."
Vianna, Oct. 26.���Tbe excitement

In order to secure satisfactory city
government it is necessary for the
citizens to take au interest in municipal affairs aud to use their influence
to secure the very best results. There
is need of reform in the administration of affairs in this city, aud there
nre strong reasons why the citizens
should at once set about the work.
The business of the city should be
conducted on business principles and
at present that is far from boing Ihe
case. The men in control of affairs
act as if they were in no way responsible to the ratepayers and that they
art in office to carry on public business not to meet public requirements,
but merely to suit their own ideas and
to serve their own ends. There are two
men in the council who have tried to
assert their independence of coercive
control, but they have been unable to
carry out their views as to what the
administration should be, an opposing
majority that has no regard whatever
for public opinion, being too much
for them.
The electrio light scandal is enough
to convince the citizens that their
affairs are in bad and untrustworthy
hands. The mayor of tho oity is interested in the electric light company
and he was the chief instrument in
forcing through tho council the sale
to the oity of tho company's effects at
a price far in etcess of what* any sane
man would offer for tho property. And
notwithstanding that the courts sot
aside the by-law and vitiated the sale
on the grounds of the mayor's illegal
position in tho affair, he continues his
connection with the company and has
carried through the council a resolution to appeal the case. This questionable conduct ou tho part of a mayor
would not be .tolerated in any well
organized community for a day and it
has become intolerable in this city.
A mau of honor who iu auy way valued publio respect would not occupy
this position. He would either resign
from the mayoralty or sever his connection wich the company, upon his
connection with which Justice Walkem
based his quashing of the electric light
by law.
The people of Nelson have endured
for some years the very objectionable
municipal government thrust upon
them, in the hope that time would
work a remedy and afford them relief,
but it is plain that their forbearance
has beeu mistaken for weakness aud
that this objectionable government
will continue indefinitely unless they
rouse themselves to action. The city
is attracting attention from all quarters as the most important placo in
Southern British Columbia and business of all kinds will find its way hoie
iu tho near futuro. It will not do to
have it go abroad that tho govcrunient
of tho city is not in safe hands, and
tho sooner the change is mado the
better. Tho credit of this city cannot
be hazarded that slip-shod methods of
management may prevail.
Every citizen of Nelson should, there-'
fore, bbo thnt his name is on tho "ot-
ers' list and that all of his rates, particularly the road tax, are paid. He
will then be iu a position to assert
himself at the polls and leud a hand in
electing a mayor aud couucil that will
be creditable to the city.

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

our new premises before unloading, thereby causing a little delay on the part
of filling orders. However, we are pleased to say that the goods are all in our
warehouse now and next week we will have them on our shelves, disposable
at the same low prices as have always prevailed here and brought our name so
prominently before the careful buyer.

The Attitude of the Liberal
Party Thereto.
The Eeport of Dun & Oo Shows the Oountry to bein a Prosperous Condition
Death of W. Cochrane-
Ottawa, Oct. 28.���Among tho many
subjects of cuirmt political controversy and criticism there is perhaps none
upou which greater and more honest
misunderstanding appears to exist
than that of the attitude of the Liberal
party upon the question of tariff reform. The Liberal party in Canada,
as iu the old country, has always been
thoroughly identified with the inalienable principles of free trade, and the
local conditions that have compelled a
modification thereof have been submitted to as a matter of necessity and
never ot choice. When therefore (he
Liberal speakers and writers havo declared their unshaken fidelity to free
trade they have declared for the principles and for their fealty thereto, both
personally antt as party representatives,
and wheu they have declared for a
modification of thpse principles in the
field of practical politics, they have
simply recognized aud submitted to the
inexorable logic of the then prerniling
There is nothing incousistent in
such a position ; it is the attitude of
all practical men.
Upon every live issue with scarcely
an exception the policy of auy mau
or any party, if it is worth calling
a policy at all, is teutative aud pro
gressive, moving as the world moves,
progressing as conditions advance.
It is scarcely likely that any student or even fairly close observer of
events will question this in thoory,
but many fail to apply the principles
practically. For instance, it lias been
declared weekly, aud almost daily
during the past two weeks that (he
liberal party has gono back upon the
position it to<:k prior to the general
election in 1896, when it is asserted
that it declared for free trade. The
premier and other prominent meml ers
of the government have been quotod
and misquoted iu support of this contention, the position of the critics
being accuvatoly sum mod up in a sentence by Professor Goldwin Smith in a
publishedjarticle a fow days ago when
he asserts that "at the time of the
election we heard a great deal about*
free trade aud very little about neres-
s:iry caution and delay.''
This is not an acourate statement
of the facts, as may be see by reference to the proceedings of the liberal
convention in Ottawa which formulated the platform upon wliich that
election was fought. Thore is no mention of free trade there, the fact being
recognized that such an ideal condition was impossible under existing
circumstances in Canada; but what
was declared for was, "the adoption
of a sound fiscal policy which, while
not doing injustice to any class would
promote domestic aud foreign trade
and hasten the return of prosperity to
onr people ; aud to that end the tariff
should be reduced to the needs ot
honest, economical and efficient government. " Such was the declaration
of faith, reduced to black aud white
iu June J803, upon which the election
campaign in the spring of 1800 was
conducted, upon which the election
campaign of June 1896 was fought aud
by which the policy of the government since its accession to power has
been guided aud governed ; such is the
declaration of faith of the liberal party
in October 1898, and such will it be to
the eud of the chapter.
It meets 'all possible contingencies
that auy houest government should be
called upon to meet. As conditions
improve and tho industries of the
country recover from the perusicious
effects of artificial protootion, nud as
the country increases and develops
with tho naturally resultant prosperity, moro reductions may , be put iuto
effect. The "needs of houost, economical and efficient, government" will
be less dependent upon the tariff, ns
the natiural resources of the country
develop, and tho "sound fiscal policy"
will adapt itself to tho improved conditions and will carry the [country
nearer and nearer to its ultimate goal
of free trade.
This is tho common sense position
for any government to take, this is
and always has been tho position of
the liberal party, this is the policy
which has so materially augumentod
the present wave of prosperity and development, ' this polioy will assist in
establishing that prosperity as the
permanent, aud notJJ tho exceptional
condition of the country.
The counter charges filed by the liberal member-elect in East Northumberland against Dr.; W. A.'Willough-
by, the late conservative member, aud
defeated candidate of tho last election,
contain several personal allegations
against the doctor as startling and as
serious as have ever been  sworn to  in
an election trial.    It is alleged for ex- ]
ample that in  more than one  part  of ,
the constituency, on the  night  before
the    election,   there   was   a   general
round-up of doubtful  voters, aud that
liquor,  which   had  been    previously j
(Hugged uuder the candidate's person
al ^superivsiou, was freely distributed.
There are not a few liberals who know
and respect Dr. Willoughby as a  mau. '
who sincerely hope   that thero may be .
just as much, and   no  moro,   fouuda- '
tion for  theso  personal  charges  than !
there was  for  the 110,000  corruption '
fend yarn,  �� I
The well known mercantile agency j
of R. G. Dunn & Co., open their last
trade review with the following sen- i
fences: "It has never been possible to
make a more satisfactory quarterly report of failures during the five years
which are covered by the returns made
exclusively by this paper,'than can be
made for the past quarter. While
a very few heavy failures swell the aggregate for the last quarter, those in
real estate, brokerage or, speculation
alono counting more than 11| per
cent of the aggregate, with as much
more in operations not at all reflecting
the geueral state of business,' the aggregate was nevertheless smaller than
iu any other month covered by our
returns for many branches of business. In some branches the failures in
September or August were the smallest
in uny month and also in manv others,
'' the failures for the quarter were the
smallest in any quarter. "
By the unexpected and universally
regretted death of Rev. William
Cochraue, D. D., of Brantford, Canada loses a most estimable citizen,
and the Presbyterian churoh a valued
and much beloved leader. Dr. Cochrane was known from Halifax to Victoria, and in fact far beyond the confines of the Dominion; and wherever
he went, his bright cheery personality, and keen business acumen, made
his reputation among those with whom
he was brought in contact. His busy
life has been fruitful of good works,
and whether as a churchman or a citizen, a preacher or n teacher, he has,
for longer thau the natural term of
one generation, stood foremost in his
church aud in the land of his adoption.
