land Maitial   Law  Will be

name in the Le Roi cumpaany. The
court fees aud tho cost ot tho receivership would also have to ho paid by the
B. A. C.
Speaking of the dividend which will
be paid at the end of the month, Colonel Turner stated that as aliens can
not own real estate in Washington,
and the company owns tho Northport
smelter, the B. A. C. eannot legally
own any Le Roi stock, and consequently will not have a share in the
prospective dividend.
Kingston. Jamaica, Oct. 13.���The
trial of tho Maroon chiefs, charged
with criminal trespass and riot, who
wero released on bail last week, comes
off tomorrow. Tho newspapers today
report tho election of captains and
officers at a general meeting held at
Maroon town Saturduy, wliich portends organized resistence if the
' chiefs aro convicted.
A despatch from Anotto brvy this
i afternoon says tho Maroons nro arriving in the vicinity in threatening
; numbers, wliich is causing great aux-
! iety, although strong reinforcements
, have been sent there in readiness to
j tako summary action. Should tho
I necessity arise martial law will he declared. The Maroons themselves are
| not so much feared as the masses of
[negroes who are wandering about the
[country. Several families from the
[disturbed districts arrived here today.

All Act   for   tho   English   Provinces,
What a Clergyman  Propose.
Hamilton,     Oct.     12.���Rev.     Wm.
Kettlewill,   one   of the leaders of  the
prohibition   movement,-  says    in    a
j letter to the press that it is impossible
in view of   Quebec's   heavy  majority
against prohibition that the other provinces should coeroe   Quebec.    On the
I other hand   it   is   unreasonable    that
i when   all   tho   other provinces    want
j prohibition   that one province   should
I retard legislation   in their  favor.    He
suggests, therefore,   that   the government  should   pass   a law  prohibiting
the   importation,     manufacture    aud
salo  of liquor   in   the Northwest Territories, and   providing that each province   shall   through   its    legislature
determine whether or not it shall prohibit the retail sale of liquor.

'It is mighty uncertain now
Ivhether the British America corpora-
lion will ever again he in a position
Jj secure the minority's stock in the
[ie Roi company,'' said Colonel Tur-
today. "We gave tho British
IVmerica corporation an option several
jays ago ou our holdings at the rate
If $8.12>.^ per share. The uegotia
lions iuclnded slightly more than 204,-
|00 shares. The exact figure I think
Jas something less than 204,100. The
(lock comprised the holdings of Senior Turner and W. J. Harris, as well
i: my own and several others. It was
1 throe-day option, and it expired on
Iriday noon. The B. A. C. did not
like it up. Tlie officials told us that
f hitaker Wright himself would be
in about a month and would
lirsonally conclude the purchase. If
Jhitaker Wright ever gets tho stook

I is not cortaiu that Mr. Wright ean

"Why can't Mr. Wright buy the
lock for that figure if anybody can?"
' Woll for ono thing,'' said the ool-
liel, " the stock is now under option
I Loudon people who, it is under-
od, do not look with any particular
liendliness towards Mr. Wright, and
ncy that they will take it up. The
[tion is for tho full block of shares
jrned by the minority, and the price
8.50 per share. It will expire ou
Iturday night. The Londoners waut-
1 the stock and asked us for a price.
ft told them that they could have it
a basis of $8.50. We agreed to hold

Jtil the end of the week.���Spokes-

Port Arthur, Oct. IS.���A
mau 20 years old, named
Westornlafer, fell from tho parapet
of tho tug Georgiun, near Thunder
Onpe, and before assistance could
reach him sank to a watery gvrao.
The young man had gone out on
Hazelwood & Whalen's tug with a
party of fishermen. He wns perched
on a load of boxes at tho boat's side,
aud a lurch of tho little steamer set
him overheard. The accident was not
noticed until the Georgiua was many
yards away from him. Whon the
man's plight was discovered the tug
was switched around ani desperate
efforts made to reach Westernhafer,
who could be seen struggling frantically iu tlie water. When the Georgiua was !10 feet away from him, Wes-
ternhafter suddenly clutched his bnt
aud waved it frantically in the
water and then sank. Little or nothing is known about deoeased in Port
Arthur. He was a laborer unmarried
and had no relatives in this part of
tho country.
Tho corpse picked up at Point de
Meron is tho remains of James Edwards, formerly of Pembroke who was
accidently drowned at Kaministiquiu,
while doing mason work on the C.
P. R. bridge. The unfortunate Edwards, after falling to his death, was
caught by the swift current of the
river aud carried eastward bo quickly
that anything like rescue was impossible. The body swept over Kaka-
beka Falls, and floated along 22
miles from the place where Edwards
took the fatal  plunge.
The body of Philip Rnest, the mining man accidentally drowned 10 days
ago at Eaglo river has been   recovered.
Last week James Breen and H. C.
Bellinger of the Northport smelter
were at Sayward, four miles above
Wanota, looking over the location in
the interests of the British American
oorporation of Rossland, which is said
to be contemplating the erection of
a smelter there. But little intorest has
been taken in the visit at the time by
the peoplo there, but now the rumor
that the smelter is to be built forthwith is confirmed iu a measuro by tho
presence there of General C. S. Warren
of Spokane and H. D. Merry of Rossland, who are both connected with the
B. A. C. They have been looking over
the same ground in behalf of the big
corporation. It is belioved there that
smelter will be built either at Sayward
or Port Sheppard. The ouly thing
that will bother is to obtain good lime
for a flux..
Last week parties were at Erio to see
if the north fork of the Salmon river
could be turned so as to flow into
Beaver creek to make sufficient flow of
wator the year round to warrant
the building of a smelter   at Sayward.
Rome at the present time and the despatch came from him. It stated simply that his Holiness had made the appointment without going into details.
It made no reference to Porto Rioo,
so that the scope of the spocial mission
is confined to Cuba. Archbishop
Ohappelle will retain his present position at the New Orleans archdiocese,
the mission to Cuba being in addition
to his other duties. He is a linguist
speaking both Spanish and French, so
that his work can be prosecuted under
favorable circumstances in Cuba. The
sessions were private and it was stated
at the noon recess that nothing beyond the routine affairs of the church,
matters of organization, discipline,
etc., had been taken up.
Virden. 111., Oct. 12.���The arrival of
the imported negro miners from the
south at 12:80 today was followed by
a desperate battle. Five hundred
shots wero exchanged between the
strikers on one side and Sheriff Davenport and his deputies and railroad
police on the other sido. It is
thought that 20 men on both sides
were killed nnd wounded. The best,
information is tbat 10 were killed,
five fatally wounded, and five seri
ously wounded. A Chicago aud Alton
spocial policemau is among the killed.
His name is H. D. Kiley.
When the train bearing the negroes
arrived it was met by fully 1500 armed
millers who were lined up on each
sido of the track. The train was stopped
immediately in front of the east gates
of the stockade and there trouble began. A dozen of shots wero fired from
the stockades at the white mon while
the strikers were half a mile away.
The wildest rumors were afloat, one
being that as many as 50 miners have
been killed.
The town is in the wildest excitement and men are securing whatever
arms thoy can get hold of. Some of
the wives of the dead strikers decline
to go to their homes and are almost
mad with grief and anger.
Springfield, 111., Oct. 12.���Governor
Tanner has received a telophone message from Sheriff Davenport at Virden, that a fight between the miners
and those guardiug the stockades is going on and that 100 meu have been
killed. The governor ordered Captain Craig, of hattory " B, " and the
sons of veterans' companies at Pana
to proceed at once to Virden. Governor Tanner said: "1 shall give Can-
tain Craig, who will command the
troops at Virden, orders to suppress
the riot, protect life and property and
not to allow imported laborers to bo
unloaded at that place. Since the
mine owners have carried out their
threats, influenced by avarice and
gain, to precipitate this riot and bloodshed, I do not propose that they shall
further disturb the peace of the state.
The mine owners and managers are
responsible for and guilty of the murder brought about by the conflict and
shonld be indicted by the grand jury
for murder, as I beliove they will
St. Louis, Mo., Oct. 12.���A special
to the Post Despatch from Virden,
Illinois, says nine men on the train
were killed aud 13 wounded. Ten
miners' were killed and 16 wounded.
The train pulled out for the north
and the cars were shot full of holes. A
reporter for a Chicago paper was killed
at the Chicago and Alton depot by a
stray bullet. J. F. Fyster, manager
of the company, was shot and trampled on by the miners. Ho cannot live.
The miners aro looking for Luke,
manager of the shaft, who has hidden. It is imposiblo to find out how
mnny were killed in the stockades.
Three Men Said to Have Tried to Poison the Emperor, Put to Death.
Yokohama, Oct. 12.���According to
advices received hero from Seoul, the
capitol of Corea, Kim Hong Niuk and
two other men who are said to have
been engaged in the conspiracy to poison tho emperor, were hanged iu
prison on October 10. It is further said
that the populace afterwards secured
the bodies, disgracefully mutilated
them and dragged them about the
street. They are uow reported to be
lying iu the prison yard. The wife of
Kim Hong Niuk has been sentenced
to three years imprisonment aud to receive 100 lashes.

with Chili and declares that the maintenance of peace will allow the
country to devote its energies to the
amelioration of tlie financial situation.
He promises to administer five reforms, a decroase in public expenditures, encouragement of immigration

the various public debts to fix t 0
value of paper money, a nd to give a
limited protection to the national industries comnieusnrat 8 with the
freedom of commerce.
Washington, Oct. 12.���Secretary Alger will recommend to congress that
the existing railroad system in Cuba
be extended so as to form a line run
ning directly from Capo Maysi, at tho
east end of tho island, to Cape Antonio
on tho western extremity. He will
also recommend that this work ho undertaken by tho United States government and that congress appropriate
th    necessary funds.
London, Oct. 12.���The autumn handicap at Newmarket was won by Sacri-
pant. High Treasurer, ridden by
Sloan, was'unplaced. For the'Bennett plate, Lord Rosebery's Ibba,
Sloan up, had a walkover. Sir J. Miller's Chaleureux won the Cesarewitch
stakes. Astoria, the property of Sir
B. Wilde Griffiths, ridden by Sloan,

Washington, Oct. 12.���The commissioners of navigation today instructed
all collectors of customs on aud after
April 1, 1899, to require British yachts
visiting Americau ports to enter and
clear and pay tonnage taxes the same
as merchant vessels. This step is
taken in consequence of great Britain
imposing light dues on Americau
yachts visitiug English ports.

Washington, Oct. 12.���Tho annual
meeting of the archbishops of tho Roman Catholic church began at the
Catholic University today,under peculiarly auspicious circumstances. Just
prior to the opening session Cardinal
Gibbons, who as archbishop of Baltimore, is the presidiug officer of the
archbishops, received a cable from
Rome anuounceing that Pope Leo
had appointed Archbishop Chappelle,
of New Orleans, as apostolic delegate
to Cuba. This was the flrst official act

important church conditions in the
Antilles arising out of the war. Archbishop  Chappelle  happons  to  be in
St. Johns, Nfld., Oct. 12.���Tho col-
oninl cruiser Fiona started today to
begin a crusade against smugglers
from St. Piorre. Trustworthy information has reached the government
that there has been, of late, a largo
increase iu whiskey smuggling from
that port to both tho Newfoundland
and Canadian coasts and vigorous action will be taken promptly to
stamp it out.
Tacoma, Oct. 12.���Tho Tourist hotel

the structuro up to date -$000,000.
There was no insurance It was the
purposo of the Laud company to mako

agreement for a fight between James
J. Corbett aud Thomas Sharkey, to
tako placo on November 22 under the
auspices of tho Lennox Athletic club,
for a purso of $20,O0C, were signed
last night.
London, Oct. 12.���Lord Rosebery,
the liberal leader and former premier,
presidiug today at au agricultural
dinner at Epsom, referred to tho critical situation on the Upper Nile. He
said: "As I was responsible, both
personally and ministerially, for the
declaration of Sir Edward Grey, on
which the present policy in regard to
Fashoda is founded, and as I have no
disposition to recede from a word or
a syllable of that declaration, (loud
cheers) I feel bound to say a few
guarded, and, I hope, inoffensive
words on the subject so vital to our
interests. There are iwo or threo considerations in connection with tho question which make it of supreme gravity, the greatest being that, in face
of a deliberate warning that a particular aot would be considered an unfriendly act, that act, in spite of great
geographical difficulties, great hardships and almost insurmountable obstacles, has beeu deliberately committed. The word unfriendly used
diplomatically is of exceptional weight
and gravity, and when used to denote
an act committed by one government
against another, tho situation is
grave. On that point I will say no
"Behind the policy of the government in this matter there is tho untiring and united strength of the nation.
It is the policy of the nation itself,
and no government that attempted to
recede from it or palter therewith
would last a week. I am perfectly
certain that no idea of any weakening in this question has entered the
heads of Her Majesty's present advisors. They have only to maintain tho
attitude revealed in tho blue book and
the nation will make any sacrifice and
go to any length to sustain their action On tho other sido of the channel, the question of the flag is au element of gravity. We will honor that
flag and would not wish it the slightest disrespect, but after all, a flag is
portable, and I have some hope that
the flag in this caso is uot the flag of
Frauce, but of an "individual explorer,
and not, therefore, carrying tho full
weight of tho republic behiud it.
"Among the reassuring features is
the fact that M. Delcasse, the French
minister of foreign affairs, has received the representations of Great Britain in a conciliatory spirit. By denying the existence of the Marchand expedition he deprived the Major of the
official character which would give
the hoisting of tho flag a much more
serious aspect, aud iu spito of the contrary statements of Captain Liotard
and Major Marchand, I hope to find
that the mission of Major Mnrchaud,
conducted far from French territory,
and across territory to which France
has no claim, though other nations
have, will prove to be of a local and
not of an authoritative character.''
St. Petersburg, Oct. 12.���The
newspapers hero urgo that tho question
of the possession of Fashoda on tho
Nile, in dispute between Great Britain
and France, be settled by   arbitration.
London, Oct. Ki.���Tho Paris correspondent of tho Daily Chronicle says:
"I learn that* Major Marchand's return from Fashoda by way of Cairo

Mr. P. X. Haider, a mining engineer who spent many years in South
Africa, has just returned from the
Yukon and, speaking of that country,
gives it as his opinion, after careful
investigation, that tho region is the
greatest placer ground iu the world,
but he thinks that all the gold will le
taken out in a few years and that
the country will shortly revert to its
original state of an uninhabited
wilderness. This is tho opinion The
Miner has held and expressol frequently. Placer diggings are, hut for
a time and are soon worked out. A
few may profit by theni, but the
numbers who rush to them find the
fortune they picture for themselves
very difficult if not impossible to get.
The only permanent mining is quartz
inining and, with agriculture, it is
the basis of wealth in Canada and
growing moro important every day.
If the money w hich was put into un
productive Yukon schemes, had been
invested in mining properties in
Kootenay it would not only not have
been lost, but would have been a per
manent investment giving returns
for years to come. Speedy foi tune
was the lure of the. Yukon. To be alle
to gather gold up by tho shovelfulJwns
the dream of all who went iu there.
The slow process of delving into the
rock with blast and drill was not to
he I bought of in comparison with the
easy treatment of gold bearing gravel
iu the streams of the Yukon. Yet
long after the placers of that region
aro but a recollection, (ho quartz formations iu this section of the province
will be yielding rich returns to those
foruuato enough to possess them.
There was considerable comment
yesterday on tho action of the council
in granting the free use of the fhe
hall to the congregation of the Roman Catholic church for the purpose
of holding a bazaar therein, and the
general impression was that the council would reconsider its decisiou at
the next meeting, when the confusion
which the arrangement would cause
was fully understood. But Rev. Wilfrid Ferland. of the Roman Catholic
church has rendered any further action unnecessary by magnanimously
declining to accept the use of the hall,
or rather that ho would ask the
Ladies' Aid society iu connection with
the church to withdraw tlieir request
for the use of the building. The rev-
orend gentleman explains that ho was
uot aware, when" the request was
made, that the Presbyterians had
made a similar application some time
ago and been refused, and as he believes in equal rights to all and favor
to none, as far as tho religious denominations aro concerned, he generously
relinquishes tho right to use the hall
wliich the resolution of the council
oonfersupou him. This is a very commendable view for the reverend gentleman to take, reflecting credit on his
discernment and wisdom.
This should put an end to applications for use of tho hall for any purpose which would interfere with the
proper housing of the apparatus or
ready access to it by the firemen iu
case of emergency. And the Rev. Mr.
Ferland is deserving of the thanks of
the council for preventing thc establishment of a precedent whicli might
prove awkward in the futuro. If the
city had a public hall the granting of
it free of chargo for purposes of charity would meet with general approval,
but under the circumstances the fire
hall should not bo treated as a public
building availablo for entertainments
of any kind.
General Kitchener's arrival at Fashoda seoms to have been opportune for
Marchaud in more ways than one In
the first place it relieved the Frenchman from danger of being swept away
by the Dervishes and in the second
place it saved the major from starvation. Like the Klondikers who took
n six months trip on the Ashcroft
trail with one month's provisions,
he wns out of grub when the roast beef
of old England hove in sight aud the
Frenchmen attacked it instead of the
English and with more satisfactory results.    Great people, these English.
Rov. Mr. Kottlewill, of Hamilton,
Ontario, is of the opinion lhat prohibition should be enforced in the provinces that voted for it, leaving Quebec to follow her own devices. We
think that there will not be general
response to Bro. Kettlewill's suggestion, aud it would be difficult to secure
legislation to that end. A better plan
would bo for the prohibitionists to
undertake to convert Quebec. That
would keep them busy for some years
ti come and would give the other provinces a needed rest.
It was easier for the United Statos
to make war on Spain than it is to
got a treaty of peace, but if the Spaniards knew as much about the bar-
gain-iuaking propensities of the Americans as Canadians do they would give
over tho haggling mothods of the
hand-me-down shop and invito the
conquerors to take what they want,
for they will get it, the Philippines,
Porto Rico, Cuba and anything olso
thoy fancy.
-, It is reported that Chicago men have
found great lead-silver deposits on
Great Slave lake, and the agent of a
transportation company says that
there will be a smelter there next summer. Tho Chicago parties may have
enough wind to move a blast, but
what they will lack at Great Slave
lake is coal and coke. But, of course,
Chicago could easily grapple with a
difficulty like that.
The Americans havo discovered that a small harbor charge is imposed on yachts in Great Britain and
in retaliation tliey havo enacted that
all yachts entering their harbors shall
enter and clear and pay full tonnage
dues liko a merchantman. These are
little acts of friendship which show
tho world that the two countries are
approaching   more   friendly relations.
Mr. Ogilvie, administrator of tbe
Yukon, has rounded up the gamblers

An advance sheet of the Christmas
number of the Gentlewoman, published in Arundel street, Strand, London,
has been received. The Christmas
number of this magazine has always
heen looked forward to with considerable interest, but this year fresh attractions are promised.
This issue, which will be published
aboutjthe middle of November is almost
entirely written and illustrated by
Colonial writers and artists,which is a
distinct departure in the way of English journalism, and has been stamped
with the approval of many publio men.
A picture artistically executed upon
white satin will be presented with
each number, which is of course intrinsically worth more than the
charge made for the magazine itself.

The Slocan is a hard place upon
newspaper men. The climate causes
such a keen appetite that it is difficult
to keep it iu subjection. There are
uo farmers in the country to bring in
turnips, pork squash and other agricultural luxuries for subscriptions.
The dealer in wood has no conscience
and everything plays the limit in
price. The people are indifferent to
local papers. Most of them do not
care whether they have a paper in
their midst or not. A few are public-
spirited enough to assist the press,
while tho rest imagine that editors
live on ozone and water. If the Slocan peoplo were to become imbued
with a more generous spirit towards
their local press the outside world
could be touched for untold thousands
in the way of investments. A country
I in judged ou the outside by its pa-
I pers. If they are fat and well dressed
I with live ads the folks at a distance
naturally infer that the people supporting them are enterprising and up-
to-date. If, on the other hand, they
are lean and marked with tho staiu
of poverty, a corresponding effect goes
with them. It would bo better for a
eommuni ty to kill all its half-starved
rags than to have them go out to the

Spent A Very Pleasant Vacation in America.
He Doubted the Accuracy   ofthe Report
Thit Britain Would Ohange Her
Foreign Policy.
New York, Oct. 12.���Hon. Joseph
Chnnberlain, British sooretary of
state for tbe colonies, with his wife
and daughter, who have beeu visiting
the Endicotts in Massachusetts, sailed
for England today, on board the
White Star steamer Majestic. Mr.
Chamberlain said that until he had
oonferred with the governor of Jamaica, he could not discuss the troubles
existing in the West Indies. He said
that his vacation, had been a very
pleasant one nnd that he was sorry
that he had been unable to make a tour
of the west, as he had intended. Asked
if he thought Marchand to be simply
an irresponsible French adventurer of
the same type as Jamieson, Mr. Chamberlain said that from the cablegrams
he had read in the American newspapers, hre did not think so, because
according to these despatches the
French government seems to have
acknowledged him. '' If the cablegrams
are correct," he added, "then Marchand is a French agent. I will find
that out definitely when I get back to
Before the steamer sailed Mr.
Chamberlain said that the news that
Great Britain intended a radical
change iu her foreign policy may be
true, but that he knew nothing about
such an important move and that ho
is inclined to doubt the accuracy of
the report.

Beaton and Knappen, two of the
newspaper men who distinguished
themselves by rushing into the thick
of the fight with the United States
troops ugaiust tho savage Indians in
Minnesota on Wednesday, were Canadians. Beaton, tho Minneapolis Tribune man, whose Christian name is
Kenneth, was born in Orillia, Ont.
He is a son of D. J. Beaton, who for
years was associated with W. F. Lux-
ton, ou the Winnipeg Free Press. Ho
himself worked on tho Free Press until
about fivo years ago when he went
across the border to seek a wider field
of labor. Ho found the object of liis
search aud mado good use of it. He
was about 25 years of age.
Knappen, the Times man, whose
Christian name is Harry, was born in
eastern Canada and lived with an
uncle iu Winnipeg, who was engaged
in the hotel business during the boom

Immediately aft'ect the brain. The
French doctor says tho blood first

for hours after decapitation, during
which timo the person decapitated
retains his or her souses of hearing
smelling and seeing. Absolute doath,
Dr. Cinol claims does not ensue for
throo hours. Thus it is pointed out,
guillotining, instead of being speedy,
is one of the most prolonged and horrible   forms   of   capital    punishment.
