LILLIE  BROS.
Great Excitement Over an
Alleged Plot.
ARMY MEN IMPLICATED
General Zurlinden Aoquitted of Complicity-Due to the Orleanists.
Official Denials.
Paris, Oct. 14.���The Liberte asserts that the following military mon
ore alleged to havo heen concerned in a
conspiracy, namely, Generals Bois-
deffre and Pellieux. Attempts, it is
alleged, were also made to compromise
General Zurlinden, the military governor of Paris, who for a short time
was minister of war, hut it appears,
tbe present minister of war General
Chanoine, refnsed to countenance it.
According to the rumor, the plot
arose from a forged letter purporting
no have been" sent by General Bois-
deffro to General Zurlinden, containing the words "Let us be ready for
Saturday.''
The semi-official Temps this evening
minimizes the affair and says the officials of the ministry of war formally
deny that a plot existed. The Temps
suggests that a misinterpretation was
placed ou somo of the numerous despatches now beiug exchanged hetween the different garrisons in connection with the present movements
of troops whioh led to strange reports
of plots.
THE TIMES' VIEW.
London, Oct. 15.���Tho Paris correspondent of tho Times says: "It is
impossible to obtain clear proofs of the
existence of a plot. I believe, however, that the idea of some act of force
haunts certain military minds, maddened and stung by violent, criticisms
of the army, arising out of the Drevfns
case. They are especially irritated at
the attitude of civilians, iu claiming
to interfere iu the detention of Col.
Piquart for which rhe entire military
authorities are responsible.
"Looking to the excited state of
men's minds at the present time of
conflict between the military and
civil authorities, it is only surprising
that such alarms ore not more frequent."
THE ORLEANISTS.
Paris, Oct. 15.���It   is impossible  to
pick out   the   truth from the mass of
minors  current  regarding the alleged
military plot. The general idea is that
it was intended by a  pretended  revisionist  demonstration   to   provoke the
army into somo act which might have
led to the incarceration of a   Dreyfus-
ito ond the proclamation of a military
government.    Apparently,  the Orleanists were at   the bottom of  the   move
and an   Euglish   duke -is   mentioned.
There is little doubt that the plot  has
been frustrated, but a very uneasy feeV-
ing prevails,
j--^.The Jfaot   that   General    Boisdeffre
how   just undergone   an   operation for
anthrax   is regarded  as  showing that
he had nothing to do with the conspiracy.   On the   other  hand, it  appears
1 that quite  recently the   Gendarmerie
> were withdrawn from the great towns
[ as of Normandy and Pioardy to Paris,
but it may bo assumed that this  fine
j body, under  orders from the perfect
of police and the minister of  the  in-
[ tenor can be put in   movement   with-
lout flrst proclaiming a state of siege.
j   A reliable  estimate of tbe troops re-
J cently  brought  to  the capital on ac-
Icount of  the   strike puts the  number
1 now here, or within easy distance, at
[40.000.     A   long   ond  vogue    semi-
lofficial statement appeared this evening
J suggesting various possible  motives,
���such as Dreyfusite intrigues or an  at-
[tteinpt by the socialists to frighten the
[government iuto dispersing  the troops
(that  now prevent the  success"^ the
Istrike to explain   the rumors of a mil-
litary conspiracy.   The mysterious al-
llusions,  however, ond the absence of
any straight-forward donial tend to
encourage the belief that there must be
somo ground for the rumors.
EVACUATION OP CUBA.
Arrangements    (o    Deport    Spanish
Troops Prom   the   Island.
Havana, Oct. 14.���Tho Spanish military commissioners today delivered au
official note to the American commissioners, giving the number of the
Spanish troops shipped to Spain up
to the prosent at 6617, not including
those who go by the Montserrat at
Migi.elj, which will take 2200 additional men. In addition it was announced that transports to carry the
entire garrison of Gibora, Holguin and
other places in these divisions, will
leove on October 20, 24, 25 and 30.
After thoy have sailed, it is pointed
out, half the island of Cuba will have
been entirely evacuated. General
Luquie, thi commander of the Spanish troops at Holguin, has assured the
commissioners that if the American
troops happen to arrive at the end of
the mouth at eastern points, beforo
they are completely evacuated, the
Spanish forces remaining at these
points will be camped iu separate
places.
ASKS   POR   THE~EMPEROR.
The Emperor of China  Closely Guarded���His Power Gone.
Pekin, Oct. 14.���The new Italian
minister, Signor Martino, has arrived
here and demands the customary
audience of the emperor. Much interest is aroused in the part the dowager
empress will take in the ceremony.
The French minister M. Gerard has
strongly urged the immediate neces-
ity of obtaining the release of a
Frenchman who is now iu the hands
of the Szechuon rebels and has threatened to take strong mensnres which
will include French troops crossing
the frontier. The emperor is practically imprisoned in tho island palace,
which is strongly guarded. Not a
boat is allowed to land there except
with the expressed consent of the dowager empress. All the decrees ore
now issued by the dowoger empress,
the lost pretense of the emperor's
power having been abolished.
WILL BE AT  WASHINGTON.
Canadian    Representatives  Will  Ask
for an Adjournment.
Ottawa, Oct. 14.���Sir Wilfrid Laurier, Sir Richard Cartwright and Sir
Louis Davies, Canadian representatives
at the international conference will
be at Washington on November 1 preparatory to the re-opening of the conference, but will it is said, ask for an
adjournment to about the 8th to enable
them to visit Quebec, to say good bye
to their excellencies Lord and Lady
Aberdeen and to welcome the new
governor general Lord Minto.
LEITER'S PRESENT.
London, Oct. 14.���The Chroniole
says that for the purpose ot morking
his satisfaction with the fact that his
daughter will be the flrst American
vicereine of India, Mr. Levi Leiter,
the father of Lady Kedleston, Mrs.
George N. Curzon, will present to her
a residenoe in London. The place will
not be occupied by Lord and Lady
Kedleston until the former's term of
offlco as viceroy of India oxpiros, although it will be at his wife's disposal
if she visits England whilo Lord Kedleston is in Indio.

the cose against them to one of a simple trespass under tho civil code.
Later���The Maroon leoders have heen

And Now That Country, Franoe's Natural
Ally Should Aid Fianoe Against
England-
Paris, Oct. 14.���M. Delcasse, the
royalist leader, in a letter published
in the Gaulois, says that at the conclusion of the China Japanese war,
France unhesitatingly assisted Russia
and that the time has now come for
Rnssio to repay that service by helping
France against England. It is evident he says, that if it should be necessary for England to go to war,
France would be helpless alone. Russia is the only power that can contemplate war with England with serenity, for she is invulnerable.
A REPORT FROM FASHODA.
Cairo, Oct. 14.���A steamer having
on board an officer belonging to the
French force, under command of Major Marohand, now at Fashoda on the
Nile, has arrived at Khartoum. This
officer is the bearer of the report sent
for by the Frencn minister of foreign
affairs, M. Delcasse, by courtesy of
the British government over the Anglo-Egyptian lines of communication.
It is presumed the officer will proceed
to Cairo in order to be oble to use the
offloial cypher of the French consulate there for transmitting the report
to Paris.
A DEFEAT  FOR FRANCE.
St. Petersburg, Oct: 14.-The No-
voe Vremya, commenting on the British blue hook giving the correspondence between Great Britain and
France concerning Fashoda, says it is

Great Britain desires. It adds that
France, thanks to her present rulers,
finds herself on the verge of a serious
diplomatic defeat.
FRANCE VS.   ENGLAND.
Rome,   Oot.   14.���The  Italia    says
this morning:   "France has concluded

SIR WILLIAM ARRIVES.
The Crow's Nest Pass Will Oome Through
Nelson���The   fiobson���Pentioton
Extension.
Sir William Van Home, president
of the Canadian Pacifio railway, arrived in Nelson yesterday evening by
special train and registered at the
Phair. Included in the party are R.
B. Angus, Montreal; William Peterson, principal of McGill University;
W. Ogilvie, the millionaire miller;
Master Mechanic Cross; W. Whyte,
manager of the C. P. R. lines west of
Winnipeg; R. Marpole, superintendent of the Paciiic division; E. Alexander, Sir William's private secretary;
D. F. Coyle, Mr. Whyte's private secretary ; and J. P. Geddes, private sec-
rotary to Mr. Marpole. E. B. Osier,
of Toronto, who was one of the party,
caught cold at the coast and decided
to go round the othor way, meeting
them ou the Crow's Nest Pass railway. J. W. Whitlow, of Winnipeg,
is also one of the party.
When asked by a Miner reporter for
a definite statement os to whether or
no it was decided to bring the Crow's
Nest Pass railway through Nelson,
Sir William replitd, "We don't want
to go over the tops of the mountains.
It is too ridiculous to talk about; of
course we ore coming through Nelson. '' .
Sir William declined to speak positively as to whether Nelson would be
a divisional point or not, as many
things had to be considered, and the
question was not yet decided.
It was the intention, however, of
the company in the future to build
numerous local lines, whose exact location would be determined by the results of the development of the mines
in the different sections.   Sir William
stated that it always had been, and
still was, his opiuion that Nelson,
by reason of her geographical position, and her communication facilities, was the natural center of the
Kootenays.
Sir William thought it probable
that Mr. J. Hill and the Northern Paoi-
fic would make another application to
the Dominion parliament this winter
tor a charter to build into the Kettle
river valley.
The Robsou-Pentictou extension was
progressing well, but it was uphill
work, a great deal of cutting and tunnelling being necessary. He had been
to Brooklyn yesterday, and had seen
part of the line. He considered it the
hardest hit of railroad construction
the O. P. R. has yet oncountered. It
was much harder than hod been anticipated. It was almost like going over
the tops of the mountains.
Tho party leaves this morning at 7
a. m. ou theTsteamor Kokanee, aud
will proceed to the east via the Crow's
Nest Pass railroad.
LOST IN NEW YORK.
"DROWNING LIE RATS"
Steamer  Wrecked   off the
Lizard.
BODIES   OAST   ASHORE
A Civil Engineer From Toronto Reported Missing.
New York ,Oct. 14.���The World tomorrow will say: A young man giving his name as Horvoy Haggard, a
medical student of Toronto, called at
the World office last night and told the
following story:
'' I came to New York on Tuesday
morning from Torouto, with Henry
Allen, a civil engineer, and we were
to leave the following day on the
Majestic for Queenstown and then go
to Dublin, where Mr. Allen expected
to take a professorship in mathematics
at the University. In the afternoon
about four o'clock, he left the hotei
Bradford, of Eighth street, for a walk.
He had but $1.40 in his pocket.
Since then I havo not seen him,
though I have searched throughout the
city for three days. I found that he
bought a bottle of whiskey near the
hotel and asked his way back. That
was the last trace I could find of him.
He had no reason for disappearing
so far as I knew. I hove about $500
in cash and other valuables belonging to him. He may have got lust
while under the influence of the
liquor.''
Haggard says tLi-.V'Allcn is rvorth
about $70,000.
O. P. R. AND GRAND TRUNK.
Comment of the  Financial News on
the  Situation.
Toronto, Oct. 14���The following is a
special cable to the Evening Telegram, dated London, Oct. 14. : The
Financial Times soys editorially to
day, that the speech of Sir Charles
Rivers-Wilson at the half-yearly meeting of the shareholders of the Grand
Trunk railway company yesterday was
not altogeher cheerful, though it was
optimistic in parts. The outlook for
the Grand Trunk, it adds, does not appear so rosy as it did a few days back,
a fact made evident by the market yesterday. The Financial News says it
is a great pity that Sir William Van
Home does not realize the great change
that has taken place. The Grand
Trunk will no longer submit to the
dictation of the Canadian Pacific.
THE PEACE  COMMISSION.
The  Philippines    Question  Not Yet
Entered Upon.
Paris, Oct. 14.���The American
repiy to the Spanish presentation of
Tuesday was submitted at the session
of the peace commission today and
read. An oral discussion followed, occupying the time until about 10 minutes past six, when the commissioners
adjournned until Monday next. The
Philippine question has not yet been
entered upon. The Spanish ambassador, Senor Leon Y Castillo, will give
a breakfast in honor of the Spanish
commissioners on Saturday and the
United States ambassador, General
Horace Porter, will give a breakfast
on Tuesday, at which M. Cambon, the
former French ambassador at Washington, General Wesley Merritt ond
Commander Bradford will be present.
ANARCHISTS   ARRESTED.
Italians Who Plotted   Against tho Life
of the Emperor.
Alexandria, Egypt. Oct. 14.���The
Alexandria police havo arrested nine
Italians, anarchists, since lost evening and have thereby frustrated a plot
against Emperor William, now on his
way to the Holy Land, to bo present at
tho consecration of the church of the
Saviour at Jerusalem. Tho first to be
arrested is a cafe keeper, a woll known
anarchist, iu whoso house tho polico
discovered two wire wound bombs of
great strength, full of bullets. This
arrest was mado in consequence of a
notification from the Italian consul
general at Cairo that two anarchists
had |left Cairo for Port Said. The
liveliest satisfaction is felt ovor the
smart captures and tho German consul
has expressed his warmest thanks.

Loudon, Oct. 14.���The Atlantic
transport company's stoamer Mohegan,
formerly the Cleopatra, of Jthe Wilson
and Furuess Leyland line, which left
London for New York yesterday with
50 passengers aud a crew of 150, is
ashore off tho Lizard, between the
Manacles and the Lowlands. It is rumored that there hns beou a great
loss of life, a coast guard messenger
reports that the passengers arc"drowning like rats." Another report says
that bodies are washing ashore, one
being that of a lady with her legs severed ond lashed to a plank. Particulars as to the disaster are difficult to
obtain. It appears that when the
Mohegan struck, a gale was blowing and the sea was running high.
Life boats put off from the Lizard and
from Falmouth.
MANY LIVES LOST.
Loudon, Oct. 15.��� 3:80 a. m.���According to a despatch just receivod
from Falmouth out of the 200 persons
constituting passengers and crew of
the Mohegan, only 81 have been saved.
This intelligence was forwarded
from the coast by telephone to Falmouth.
Later���A life boat has landed 30 of
the Mohegan's passengers and returned
for more. Ono lady died after she
was brought ashore.
Several were drowned, it is reported
on the passage of the life boat to
shore. Another life boat saved six
persons. The coast at that point is
dangerous and has been the scene of
numerous wrecks. A later despatch
from Falmouth says the Mohegan
foundered and was probably blown
ashore by the heavy oast wind after
hor machinery was disabled. All tho
Falmouth tugs went out but none
were able to approach the vessel.
SETTLERS   MOVING  IN.
A Large  Addition to  the Population
in St. John Lake District.
Ottawa, Oct. 14.���The Lake St.

Canada and the. United States, visited
the country and 1029 new settlers havo
arrived there, 573 from the United
States and 456 from different parts of
Canada. It is expected that the whole
parish of Arcadia, Maine, headed by
the mayor and the priest will be
transferred to Honfleur parish on tho
Peribonka river, nine miles south of
the settlement of those who came from
Detroit last year.

THE POWER   OF  THE PRESS.
The intensely partizan nature of
the party press in Canada renders its
opinion on any subject relating to the
administration of public affairs of
little weight. Tho conservative
press took up the charges
against the Yukon officials with
avidity,not because it was particularly
concerned about the proper administration of that region but because the
charges offered on opportunity to fasten blome upon tho government. The
liberal press, ou its side, flew to the
defence of the officials anil the department and branded tho statements of
the conservative press as wilful falsehoods. Were the cose reversed so that
conservative officials were the objects
of censure, the rosult would still be
the some, the liberal press would at-
tock aud the conservative press would
defend, while between the two the
public would be as much in thc dark
as ever. It is this sort of thing that
deprives the press of the influence and
strength it should possess.
The most independent paper in tho
world is the London Times. Money
cannot buy it^ nor could tho mighty
sway its opinion ou any subject. No
brighter woman ever visitod this
country than Miss Shaw, the colonial
editor of tho Times. Sho was sent out*
to write articles on tho Yukon and
she came to her task unbiased and
without prejudice. She visited the
Yukon and after careful investigation
she, in letters to her paper, reluctantly
confirmed the stories of discreditable
conduct on the part of government
officials there.
Note the result. The Times has
won a world-wide reputation for fenr-
less independence and respect for the
truth. As soon us Miss Shaw made
public the result of her enquiries, lhe
Toronto Globo whioh at one time
might, hove been styled tho Times of
Canada so independent wns it, Imt
which, when its party oatne into
power reverted to the position of organ, suggested that un investigation
into the charges was imperii tlve after
what the Times had said. Yet tie
Globe has repudiated these charges as
the fabrications of falsifiers on the
Other side of politics.
So that if an investigation bo held it
will not bo because of the influence
that the press of Canada had upon the
government, but bocanse that it is
not pleasant to have the Loudon Times
deplore dishonesty among Cauadinn
officials, who should bo as freo from re-
proaoh as British officials are everywhere. Yet the Times has said nothing that the Canadian press has not
said over and over again. But, unfortunately, tho Canadian party press has
written itself into a position where its
advice is no longer respected and its
power no longer strong.
ties. The United States has a race
problem of its owu and would not be
likely to undertake the settlement of
tho race problem in the West Indies,
a subject which has given successive
British governments concern for years.
The time must come when the
blacks, ever increasing in number,
must oust tho whites from the islands. The process has been going on
for years und now the black population
far outnumbers the white. In a
short time control must be relinquished to them and thoy will be left to
their own devices. The result in San
Domingo and Hayti has not been such
as to impress the world with the capacity of the negro race for self government.
NOT   VERY   PEACEFUL.
While the czar is arranging to hold
his peace conference, there are rumors
of wnr upon all sides. The trouble
between the United States and Spain
is still unsettled, tho Ohinoso situation
is filled with danger, Franco is on the
ovo of uphoaveal, rebellion in Italy is
ouly kept down by the military arm ;
thero is revolt in Morocco and an
uprising against Menelek in Abyssinia.
Oil iti and the Argmitiine republic are
just cooling off trom tho heat of their
warlike attitude of a few weeks ago.
Ovor all this tho czar hopes to cast
tho beuizou of peace. Wo do not think
he will be successful. War may be the
pastime of the barbarian, but it is
also the business of the Christian at
times whon civilization is in danger.
Therefore, there need be little hope of
peace while men and nations live os
they do today, gun in bond and nady
for battle with or without provocation. The only two persons who seem
to think otherwise are the czar and
the pope, neither of whom will cut
much figure when the great crash
comes.
SIR   W.   C. VAN HORNE'S VISIT.
Sir   William   Von   Home and party
arrived in tho city yesterday by special
train and left on   the steamer Kokanee
for  Kuskonook   this    morning.    Hale
and   hearty   and   alert in his   mauuer
as ever,    Sir   William   met   many  of
Nelson's   prominent   citizens   at  the
Phair last night   and   settled   conclusively the   question   of tho   coming of
the Crow's Nest Pass   railway to Nelson.    In convention Sir William said
that Nelson, situated  as  it  in is  the
centro of   the   mining   country, must
become   a  most   important   oity   and
tho Canadian   Pacific   railway  would
prove nn important factor in   bringing
aoout  the  result.    Round   about   the
city is a rich mining country and with
direct communication east  ancl  west,
such as tho city would   soon have,   it
I should  become  the  hub   of  southern
! British   Columbia.    Already it is   the
i official centre and rapidly growing in-
i to the wholesale  centre  and   through
j it must   bc done tho bulk of the trade
| of the Kootenays.    Of   course   control
; of trado   depended  very  much on the
amount   of   energy   expended   in   the
securing   of  it, but that a very  large
I trade   could   be   got   by tho  business
I houses of Nelson was beyond question.
The  ooihing  of the new line  would
also place Ivelsou in a favored position
as   a   manufacturing      poiut,   where
i there would bo   unlimited   supplies of
j cheap   fuel.    Altogether   he    thought
| Nelson had   us bright prospects of becoming a  great and influential city as
any placo iu the land.    There ore few.
taking into consideration the fact that
iu a week or two   Nelson will be in  a
measure   tho   terminal  of   the    most
important  extension  of tho Canadian
Pacific railway, who would undertake to
dispute what  Sir  William   has   soid.
There aro   those   who have hud  faith
in this town from   the  beginning and
it   is  safe to  say that tho hopes   they
havo   cherished of seoing Nelson stand
in the   first   rank   of Canadian   cities
will be realized.
JAMAICA'S  RACE   PROBLEM.
One effect of tho success of the Cubans in their strugglo for independence, whioh they scoured, so for ns
Spain is concerned, by the good offices
of the Americans, is seen in tho uneasy and threatening attitude of the
negro population in the British West
India inlands. It* is snid thnt there nro
manyJAinerican sympathizers in Jamaica who are agitating for annexation with the United States.
It has been pointed out that the
Americans aro the friends of freedom
and that if the negroes rise against*
British rule they could count upon
American support in driving European rule out of tho islands. They mny
find themselves mistakeii in this,
Bhould they press   matters to extromi-

The Quebec  Majority Against Will  Fall

French Press.
Ottawn, Oct. 14.���Tho expectations
of tho anti-prohibitionists will likely
bo disappointed when tho plebiscite
returns have boen ollicially compiled
uu'.'-'publishod. The majority for prohibition in Ontario will bo greater
than tho opponent^ of prohibition nre
now Willing to coneedo and greater
than somo prohibitionists anticipate.
It will bo in tho neighborhood of !!(!,-
000. On the other hand the majority
against prohibition in Quebec will be
considerably short of the figures which
aro appearing in tlie French Canadian
newspapers. It will be in the vicinity of 70,000. As high nn adverse majority ua 00,000 hns been claimed,
The Ottawn Citizen makes (he state-
niont that the experience afforded by

anything else both in East Kootenay
and in Nelson, is. the oonfldence everyone feels in the future of the country,
a confidence bomo out more and more
everyday by facts.
At tho coast, times.aro good, in
Vancouvor more especially. Thore are
no empty houses there aud many substantial bindings are being put up,
but not for speculative purposes, th e
builders intending to occupy them

After leaving Nelson, Mr. Oppenheimer will proceed to Rossland, returning to the coast via tho Boundary country aud Penticton.

not Mr. Oppenheimer'S flrst visit to
Kootonay, ns 80 yenrs ago ho camo
through the oountry by way of the

Mr. Oppenheimer has occupied himself

That  tho  Liquor Traffic  is  Allowed

meeting of the sub-committee ou homo
missions of tho Presbytorian church
of Canada held on Thursday, claims
for Western Presbyteries were considered iu dotail aud passed. Of tho
amounts appropriated, the Kamloops
Prosbytory received (3388175 for missionary purposes.
Rov. O. W. Gordon of Winnipeg,
who visited Nelsou and other points
in the Kootonay about a month ago as
secretary of tho mission board present
od a vory gratifying roport regarding
tho missions in British Columbia,
which he- nas recently visited, but
complained that thc liquor traffic was
allowed almost riotous freedom, in
striking contrast with the conditions
under which it is carried on in the
Territories. In tho same way Sab-
hath desecratiou was very wide spread
and shameless all through the province and it was becoming a question
"whether our best traditions are tu
be preserved aud our moral and religious life to be upheld in British Columbia or are we to drift away in such
conditions as prevail south of the
border?"
