Powderly   Says  Canada   Should Hnvo
Stricter Regulations.
Buffalo, Sept. 2. ���United Statos
Commissioner General of Immigration
T, V. Powderly took a flying trip to
Hamilton, Out, to look iuto n case
tbat had attracted his attention whilo
in Montreal recently. He had read in
a Montreal paper an item to the effect
that 40 Americans liad been imported
by Hamilton contractors to work 011 a
street railway near there. Ho said that
he found lhe men all right. The Canadian authorities, he understood, are
going to try and get theni sent back to
the United States. When asked what
he thought of the present Canadian
regulations concerning alien labor,
Mr. Powderly said:
"If Canada would adopt laws as
rigid as ours and would exclude the
same class as we do, there would be
less friction between this two countries
in the matter of immigration, "

worst case is that of Tina Yoga, an
honest fanner who was told by Guatemalans that they wanted to buy horses
and ho accordingly crossed tho line
with a large number of horses to meet
General Barrilas, who seized the animals and had him beaten. This outrage has caused much indignation and
due information will be given to the
government of this republic. The
Guatemalans appear to bo actuated by
au intense hatred of tho Mexicans,
taking every opportunity to insult and
rob tho humblest people.
Feeling is Still Strong Against Dreyfus,
Who May Not be Permitted to
Go at Large-
Paris, Sept. 2.���Speculation is keenest over the motives for Colonel
Henry's suicide. Looking to tho viow
the whole nation has adopted regarding the guilt of Dreyfus, it is argued
that Henry may have thought, he was
acting in the country's interests in
forging the letter which would satisfy
the nation of tho justice of the sentence without the production of the
real evidence, wliich would be undesirable on the highest political
grounds. In that case Henry might
have posed as a martyr to misguided
The tradition of the intelligence department, which at the time of the
condemnation of Dreyfus was under a
conspicuous anti-seiiiite movement led
by Colonel Sandherr, would probably
have led a blunt mind liko Colonel
Henry's to construe the slightest hint
from the above toward killing off the
anti-Dreyfus agitation into au order to
do so by any means.
Colonel Sandherr, who was thon
suffering from an incipient paralysis,
seems to have been the head of a general conspiracy to hunt Jewish officers
out of the French army. Dreyfus, a
man of haughty demeanor, but of vast
strategic kuowledgo, would naturally
bo selected as a victim of these
machinations. It is asserted that Colonel Sandherr's last days were haunted
liy a fear, amounting to terror, lest*
tho illegal and flippant nature of the
evidence upon which Dreyfus was
condemned should be revealed and
weaken the prestige of the intelligence
department and that he enjoined upon
Henry, his subordinate, to guard the
department's traditions at all costs.
The carelessness of the authorities in
allowing Henry to have a razor and in
uot watching him is generally interpreted as connivance and perhaps as
persuasion since ollicers under arrest
likely to he condemned, should according to military regulations bo constantly watched,while Lieutouaut Colonel Henry was left hours alono and
allowed to lock the door on each side.
If there wero persuasion it is not
likely to have been difficult. Had
Henry been expelled from tlie army
both hiin and his wife, would have lost
ull pension rights. It is expected tho
widow now becomes entitled to n
handsome pension.
This seems a more likely motive
than the alleged incoherent letter he
left behind, statiug he has lost his
reason. Tho government's position is
most unhappy, Notices of iuter-
pellation in the chamber of deputies
multiply. President Fauro is censured
for leaving Paris at such a critical
moment. Great efforts are being made
to get tho signatures of a majority of
the deputies wliich is a necessary preliminary to a convocation of tho
chamber. The movement in favor of
a revision in the Dreyfus case is growing by leaps and bounds.
The minister for war this afternoon
received in audience General Reu-
ouard, director of tlio military college,
who has accepted the office of chief of
the general staff, vacant owing to the
resignation of General De Boisdefvro.
The latter hid farewell to the officials
of his bureau this morning,
Lieutenant Colonel Henry left letters
addressed to the minister of war und
General De Boisdefvro in wliich ho
protested that he had not realized the
gravity of the aet which he committed
"solely for the good of the cause."
Final Encounter With the  Rebels Expected at   Any Momeut.
London. Sept. 2.���Great Britain was
beginning to be alarmed lest tho fato
of Hicks Pasha has betallen tho Anglo-
Egyptian army under General Sir
Herbert Kitohoner. News was telegraphed from the front on Monday-
night. Tho army was thou 25! miles
from Omdurman, tho Dervish camp
near Khartoum, whero the khalifa
was reported to bo waiting with 100,-
000 warriors well equipped witli field
guns. General Kitchener's forces consisted of 10,000 British troops und
15,000 Egyptian blacks, the most perfectly equipped foreo the government
has over put iu the field,haviug plenty
of horse artillery and Maxim gnus.
It was planned to keep iu constant
communication with tho base by field
telegraph, hence the fears that in spito
of the superiority of morale and accoutrements tlie Anglo-Egyptain force
might have been overwhelmed by
numbers." The government officers announce confidence in the outcome of
tho engagement but privately they do
not conceal their nervousness at the
lack of tidings from the front.
Tho war office was relieved this
morning by the receipt of a despatch
from Cairo explaining the sudden interruption of news from the Soudan,
which gave rise to some uneasiness yesterday as to tho movements of tho
Anglo-Egyptian column now advancing toward Oiiidnrmnii - under Sir
Herbert Kitchener. It appeared that*
telegraphic communication was inter-
raped because of the wire beyond
Nanzey island, about midway between
Metemmoh and the sixth cataract of
the Nile.hadbeen damaged by a severe
storm. Shortly after the arrival of
this intelligence came the following
despatch to the News Association from
Nazey island, dated August 80,andjfor-
warded by messenger from the camp
at the front to Nazey :
"There have been glimpses of the
euomy during the last few days aud
the first skirmish took placo today,
wheu an advance guard of cavalry located a large body of Dervishes at a
supposed outpost near Kerreri, about
eight miles north of Omdurman. The
enemy showed disposition to fight,
beating with their drums aud displayed battle bunting. The Montmorency troop emptied a few Dervish
saddles aud three gunbaots steamed up
iu front of the town and shelled the
Dervishes' position. The enemy's loss
could not be ascertained, as the
Dervishes were in a hollow, but fleeing
troops could be distinctly seen.
"The army is moving slowly. Yesterday it advanced four miles in closo
Ho Has Nothing to Say of   the Miles-
Alger Controversy.
New York, Sept. 2.���Tho transport
Mexico with General Shatter and staff
was sighted off Montauk Point at 0:40
a. ni. yostorday and au hour later
dropped anchor in Fort Pond bay.
General Shafter is now strictly
speaking, by reason of his rank, in
command at Camp Wikoff, but be will
not assume the reins of control until
his term iu tho detention camp is finished. In an interievw this afternoon General Shafter said:
"I enjoyed my trip north on the
Mexico greatly, but more so on account of the ship being a prize. From
a casual observation I like Camp
Wikoff. It seems just such a place as I
should havo selected. I shall acquaint
myself thoroughly with all tlie details
of the camp.
"I knew nothing of tho Miles-Alger
controversy until I was shown a paper
on my arrival hero. I will uot discuss it, now that I am unfamiliar
with tho phases of the case, nor will I
enter the controversy at auy timo. Secretary Alger and General Miles can
take care of themselovs aud so cau I.
"Tho Rod Cross aud other nurses did
good work at Santiago, but tho front
is hardly the place for women. There
was never any real scarcity of food in
Cuba, but* there wero no transportation facilities to get supplies to the
front other than pack trains.
"The army and sick in hospitals
clown there fared as well as possible
in such a climate. "
Toronto, Sept. 2.���A fire broke out
in Bertram's shipyard at 11 o'clock
yesterday morning. The docks of the
compauy aud tho large carpenter shop
and some small buildings together
with a barge and a quantity of lumber
wero burned. The new steamer Toronto of the Riohelieu Navigation
company is threatened and will probably be destroyed. The total loss is
about $200,000.
Toronto, Sept. 2.���M. Cambon,
French ambassador at Washington, who
has represented Spain in the negotiations for peace with the United States,
spent Saturday at* Niagara Falls and
came here for a couple of hours last
night, on his way through for a brief
visit to Ottawa and Montreal. He
naturally refused to discus the important   diplomatic   interests   he   has   in
Halifax, Sept. 2.���The military
authorities here havo been notified
that the Barracks garrison is to bo
strengthened by an additional regiment and several batteries of field
artillery. Two infantry regiments
and some batteries of field artillery are
to be sent to Vancouver, and three additional regiments will be stationed at
Philadelphia. Sept. 2.���The United
States mint has received here from
Seattle 111 tho last two weeks $1,477.-
271 of Yukon gold. A single shipment
was received yesterday of $877,000.
The gold is brighter in color thau that
received from Colorado, containing
more silver and less copper. Tho Yukon
gold assays 7!)0 parts of gold, 204 parts
of silver and six parts of baser metals.
For the Re-election of Cabinet Ministers.
Those Who Will Go to tha  People are
Messrs- Soiulin,   Martin,  Cotton
and   Hume.
Victoria, Sept. 2.���The cabinet ministers chosen by Hon. C. A. Semlin to
carry on the government of this province will return to the people for reelection almost immediately. Tho
writs have gone out to the different returning officers and are returnable on
October 15, on which dato tho new
government will be firmly seated, as it
is unlikely that* any opposition will be
offered to the return of tho ministers.
Those who will seek the endorsement
of their constituents are Messrs. Semlin, West Yale; Joseph Martin and F.
C. Cotton, Vancouver; uud Hume,
Nelson. Mr. McKechnie, president of
tho council, being without portfolio
will not bo required to seek reelection.
The above despatch again brings
into prominence the question of Mr.
Hume's re-election, ami of the rumored opposition to it. But little has
been heard of late in the town of those
rumors, and it seems to be tacitly accepted that Mr Hume will be olected
by acclamation. Tlie reasons for such
a course are obvious and convincing.
The chances of the opposition candidate would be nil. and in tho present
disorganized condition of the Turner
party no funds would be forthcoming
from headquarters. In the present
condition of things nobody is likely to
be foolish enough to lead a forlorn
hopo at his own expense, which could
only result in the further strengthening of Mr. Hume's already firm hold
upon tho electorate. Courtesy too,
would suggest the unobstructed return
of Mr. Hume, in whose appointment
to a responsible office this district has
been honored.
The   Explorer   and   His   Party   Have
Been Landed  in  Greenland.
St. John's, Nfld., Sept. 2.���Tho
steamer Hope has arrived here from
Greenland, having left the Peary expedition at Foulkeflord. After leaving
Sydney, their first landing was at
Cape York, where the natives were
expected to be found. The party was
disappointed, however, all the natives
having left. Without any delay the
expedition then sailed for Snow Pocket
bay, but hero again they were disappointed. They then proceeded to
Saunder's island, finding tho natives
there in poor condition, they having
had au exceptionally bad winter, snow
falls lasting for weeks forcing thom to
quit their old haunts in quest of fcod.
The natives were delighted to see
Capt. Peary, and swarmed all over the
ship. Tlie Hope took on board a number of Esquimaux and sailed for tho
Whale sound, but owiug to tho heavy
ice pack, was unable to get in. Sho
came out all right although she received some bad scrapes.
The party then decided to return to
Saunder's island, and spent a fortnight thero during which timo 00
walrus and a quantity of seals wero
obtained. Then the Hopo proceeded
for Foulkeflord. She met tho Windward on her way. Tho latter is a poor
ship for this work, being unable to
steam to any advantage, the Hope
leaving her far behind on every ocas-
ion when Ihey left port together. At
Foulkeflord the Hope parted with
Lieut. Peary aud sailed south on tho
18th inst, the Windward leaving at
the same time for Sheard Osbourno
Fiord, whero Peary will mako his
headquarters during the. winter. Besides sixty walrus, sixty dogs and ten
Esquimaux men and women woro
taken north. Capt. Bartlett reports
all well.

The writs for the ministerial elec- |
tions havo lieen issued and the Colon- |
ist and other opposition papers will
have to cast about for another subject
upou which to base editorial strictures. Of course, their alarm that
Hon. Mr. Semlin would shatter the
unwritten constitution by not seeking
public endorsement of his government
was absurd, bat so have most of their
comments been since Hon. Mr. Semlin accepted the responsibility which
the lieutenant governor east upon him.
These papors wished to create the impression that tho honorable leader of the
government was about to wrench custom and the law by repudiating public
ratification of himself aud liis cabinet
aud governing according to liis own
sweet will. Such talk was pure fool-
ishnes and is now silenced. It is
hoped that the ministers will be allowed to return without opposition,
wliich in any case would be factious.

those living who will see British Columbia the greatest manufacturing
region in Canada, if not on this continent. Everything points that way.
Five years have seen a wonderful expansion, and if development continues
as it has begun, the next two decades
will find this province a much busier
hive of industry than it is todny. The
"tall ohimneys which used to bo so

The Americans are the sharpest
bargainers in the world, but at tho
Quebec conference they will meet men
who have learned the lesson that Canadian sacrifices made to the United
States in the past by British diplomacy
fell short of the object aimed at���the
placating of a presumably hostile people, and these men will make no concessions for which something substantial is not got in return. In the
early days and up to a few years ago
it was tho fashion with the lords of
the British foreign ollice to view with
indifference the possessions of the
crowu in British America. It was this
indifference tliat lost to Canada the
control of the Mississippi valley, i, was
this indifference that lost lu Canada
that portion of her eastern seaboard
now comprised iu the state of Maine
nnd it was that indifference that fixed
the boundary at tho 4!)th parallel and
deprived Canada of the valley of the
Columbia, which river undoubtedly
formed tho natural boundary between
Cauada and the United States in tho
For many years England was prepared to sacrifice her relatives in this
oolouy to please the Uuited States.
But of recent years British statesman
havo had thoir eyes opened to the great
value of Canada, not as a dependency,
but as au ally; as a country certain to
become powerful among the nations of
the, earth, and now thoy respect her
wishes as they never did bofore.
Accordingly Canada has the handling
of hor own affairs at the Quebec conference aud that she will handle them
wisoly there is every reason to believe. We havo learned the lesson of
self dependence and no more sops will
be thrown to hostile interests "to
smothe their ruffled fronts." Therefore reports that the Americans ut the
conforouce will insist upou the rescinding of tho preferential tariff on
British'goods, before they will discuss
a reciprocity treaty for Canada, need
not cause alarm. Canada is amply
ablo to take care of herself.
It doos not require a high development of prescience to discern that
British Columbia must play a most
important part in the progress of Canada. The sinews of strength are in
this province as in no other. Coal and
iron lying sido by sido, with the intelligence to bring them together
profitably, made Great Britain the
greatest manufacturing nation ou earth.
Coal and iron lying side by side made
Pennsylvania and the other great  in-
American miners who complain
about the royalty collected in the
Yukon seem to forget thnt it is a privilege for tliem to be allowed'to owu
claims in that country. British subjects eujoy no suoh concessions in
Alaska or in any of the milling states
of the Union, and if Amerioans have
to pay a precentage of the product of
thoir claims to tho government to defray the cost of the Yukon administration, they lire not discriminated
against. Canadians and all others, no
matter what their nationality, are under tho same regulations. The royalty
has been wisely imposed. Only those
who have very rich claims are called
upon to pay, the small claini owner,
who can clean up oompaartively but a
few dollars, being exempt.
It might be asked the men who complain if the protection given thein by
the government is not more than
sufficient return for the outlay they
may be put to? Would they uot bo
willing lo pay a much larger sum for
the security to life and property which
the presence of even the Mounted Police
insures? Yet the Dominion government at* a largo expenditure of public
mooney scut in a military force to
keep in chock the lawless element al
ways found in the crowds that flock to
gold diggings whenever found. It is
right that the Yukon should render
somo compensation for the precautions
taken to make it a safe region for the
honest miuer, and they that take a
scnsiblo view of tho matter must admit that the royalty is just and fair.
Probably if tho truth could be known
it would be found that those who aio
making tho greatest outcry about this
royalty havo nothing upon which the
tax could be levied.

The land of Manyaua is again
troubled. The pestilential little yellow
fellows of Central America, who recently formed themselves iuto a confederacy, are looking for war. War is
their pastime in their off season,when
tho crop is in, and as they cannot very
well fight among themselves for fear
of breaking the confederacy, they aro
goading Mexico to resistence. These
peoples aro not fit for self-government
any moro than tho Cubans are and the
soouor their possessions are taken in
hand by Great Britain or the United
States, tho better for humanity.
Mr. Terence Y. Powderly's advice on
any subject is not of much value, but
he would have shown sense if, instead
of advising Canada to adopt the obnoxious alien labor act of the United
States, had he denounced all such legislation, when applied to white labor,
as tyrannical. What would the thousands of American workingmen coming
and going in this province think if
Canada should act so meanly as to ap
ply an alien labor aet to them. Yet
this is tho inference to bo derived
from Mr. Powderly's utterances.

The    Continential   Powers
Wanted to Interfere
But Britain Kepliei That, in That Event,
She Would Put Her Fleet at Mc-
Kinley's Service.
London. Sept. 2.���The Spectator
says it has reliable information that
Hauotaux, late French minister of
foroign affairs, had designed a plan of
intervention between Spain and the
United States which he in turn pro
posed to the continental powers. Tho
latter agreed to the proposal and it
was presumed that Great Britain
would also assent. The French government heard with the most unfeigned
surprise, however, that tho only intervention that England would participate in would bo that of placing her
fleet at the disposal of the president of
the United States.
Commenting ou the above Mr. Ford
in his cable letter to the New York
Tribune today says : "The optimistic
Spectator is not satisfied with explaining today that the British government,
wheu approached early iu the spring
by M. Hauotaux ou the subject of
European intervention iu the Cuban
affair, gave warning that it would
place its fleet at the disposal of President McKinley. It also goes to the
length of advocating in the leading
article the abrogation of the Clayton-
Bulwer treaty, and the substitution of
it for another treaty bv which America
shall mutually bind themselves and allow no government, except that- of the
United States to make or control any
canal across the isthmus between
North and South America. This
artiole even goes beyond Mr. Blaine's
famous letters to Mr. Lowell on the
canal question, over wliich Lord Granville quibbled and the English press
raged, aud imagined vain things 17
years ago. The Spectator's article
which deserves to be printed in large
letters iu every American newspaper,
if acted upon by tho foreign office
here, would remove the only serious
question remaining unsettled betweeu
the two countries. It would leave the
Suez aud Nicaragua canals subject to
the same general principles of regulation in peace and war, with one under
the control of England and the other
under the charge of the United Stales.
That would be an ideal Anglo-Saxon

Runs  Amuck   in Portland   and   Then
Commits   Suicide.
A triple attempt at murder occurred
at Port Townsend on Monday, iii which
one Iudian woman was killed, another
probably fatally shot through the head,
while a third dropped to the floor just
as the shot was tired. Andrew Plur-
sen, a sailor on the tug, Wanderer,
while under tho influence of liquor,
visited the house occupied by these
women, aud, without warning, opened
fire on the party.
It may he here mentioned that a
previous despatch announced there
were only two victims. Ho then visited a saloon aud told the barkeeper
what had occurred. The chief of
police was then called and Plarsen took
refugo on tho sawmill wharf, and
brandishing a gun, threatened to kill
the first one that approached. A
largo crowd assembled, wliich excited
the already crazed sailor, and it was
decided to send for a shot gun and kill
him before further damage was done.
When he got sight of the gun ho
turned the pistol on himself and sent a
bullet through his head in the presence
of several hundred poople. Uu examination of the body it was found that
Plarsen was alive and he was removed
to the United States Marine hospital,
but it is thought he will dio. Ho is a
member of the coast Seaman's Union.
The Indian women killed arrived from
Victoria on the Kingston.
Moutroal, Sept. 2.���Fifteen thousand
dollars' worth of bonds of the town of

treasurer received the bonds in a
parcel at tho head office of the Moi*
son's bank on Monday and then crossett
to the St. John's office of Messrs. Hanson Bros. When the bundle was opened
tho bonds were missing.
