THE ROYALTIES ON GOLD
Tke Late Administrator Makes Many Suggestions to the Government���What
the Output Will Be.
Ottawa, Nov. 5.���The report made
by Major Wolsh to the minister of the
interior respecting the Yukon distriot
has been issued. It is a comprehensive and well considered statement of
the conditions as Walsh fouud them in
the gold oountry, and it contains many
suggestions for tbe guidance of the
government. In deal"*?- with the food
question, he says to permit of this district being thoroughly prospected and
developed, the population must be assured of its food supply beyoud perad-
venture and at reasonable prices, and
the only way in whioh such a supply
can be thus secured is by providing
transportation facilities. "I strongly
call tne attention of the department
to my previous report in this connection and to . the necessity of providing
telegraphic communication the cost
of living and the price of labor will
be so reduced, aB will also tbe price of
articles and materials required for mining purposes, that thousands of acres
of land which cannot now be worked
profitably may be worked with satisfactory returns." Discussing the royalty, Walsh says: "On my arrival at
Dawson, I found a great many questions awaiting solution which could
only be disposed of by the authority of
the commissioner. For instance, the
question of royalty, over which there
had been considerable discussion, appeared to be somewhat mixed. I immediately announced that the royalty
would be collected on all claims,
leases of which were renewed subsequent to date wheu the law came into
force. Nearly all lease holders of
large prospected claims showed n disposition to respect the collection of the
royalty; others, however, were not ao
tractable; their j principal objection
being that the leases were granted for.
one year and that once being granted
subsequent restrictions oouid not be
placed upon them. I pointed out to
the lease holders that the collection of
the royalty was necessary for the
maintenance of cost of justice, for police protection, mail communication
and for publio services. While acknowledging the force of tbe reasons
they submitted tbat more thorough
examinations of the real cost of out-
putting gold would convince the government that the royalty was a severe
tax and expressed the hope that next
year would see it removed. The royally was not collected from any claims
whioh bad not got into good working
order or whioh could not show profit
after paying royalty, and this would
represent a large sum. Again, more
than half the leases were exempted
from the royalty on account of having
been renewed previous to the date of
tbe law requiring tbe payment of the
royalty coming into force. The collection of the royalty will amount to
about half a million dollars.
Major Walsh says the postoffice'
department Bhould take over the mail
of the distriot, certainly the Dawson
part of it. The service is growing
larger and requires the full attention i
of a postmaster, with a few clerks,'
thoroughly educated in the service.
It is impossible for tbe police to han-'
die it satisfactorily. He recommends
the establishment of branch postollices
at the forks of Eldorado and Bonanza
creeks.
After stating the conditions upon
which the lease of the Dawson water
front was made, Walsh says: "The
transaction being oue which I considered to be most satisfactory from every
standpoint. I at once gave it my ap-'
proval.''   go)
As; to Jorder aud Sabbath service,
Major Walsh says it has been a matter
of gratification to note the law-abiding
and orderly character of the prominent residents of Dawson and the distriot generally.   He recommends that
au assistant jadge for Dawson district
be appointed and that one of his duties
be the deciding of mining disputes.
He doos not think that any oue but a
lawyer is qualified to try the cases.
This suggestion has been acted upon
hy the appointment of Mr. Senkler
as gold commissioner. The appointment of steamboat inspectors is also
recommended.
Discussing the output of gold and
general prospects, Major Walsh snys
tho output this year from the Yukon
district will be in tho neighborhood
of 110,000.000. When be left Dawson.
August 4, the spring and summer's
output amounted to about eight and a
half million dollars. He estimatod
that there wns about $2,000,000 worth
of gold still on the dump, most' of
which could not be washed up for
want of water, that depending entirely
upou rain. This could be cleaned up
before the close of tho season. Three
million dollars was carried over from
last autumn nnd wns shipped out this
summer. This amount eannot be ac.
counted in this year's output. It will
require this year about three and n
half million dollars to do the business
of the district. Major Walsh considers
the output of $10,000,000 a remarkable
showing and justifies great expectations for the future. Practically Eldorado and Bonanza are the onlv
creeks upon which any considerable
work has been done. Tbey, therefore,
represent the output this year. Next
year with Dominion, Hunker, Sulphur
and several other creeks, as well as a
great many hills, bench claims- will
be added to the list of producers nnd
it is impossible to make any estimnte
now of what the product of gold will
be. Some less expensive way of thawing the ground will doubtless be found
and a better process of mining can
then be adopted. There is a great
field for hydraulic operations and this
system will no doubt be introduced
before loug. Work can theu be done
ou a large scale. The output of gold
should continue to increase from year
to year until it reaches a sum which
will class the district among the greatest mining enmps in the world.
THK GUNPOWDER PLOT.
Orangemen Celebrate the Two   Hundred and Ninety-Third Anniversary.
The members of Nelson lodge No.
1692, Ii. O. L., and their friends celebrated tbe two hundred and ninety-
third anniversary of the discovery of
the gunpowder plot with a dinner at
the Victoria hotel on Saturday evening. The dinner began at 9 o'clock nnd
the spread provided was one ofjthe best
ever set before n Nelson gathering aud
reflected great credit upon the host
Mr. D. K. Taylor, who is openiig the
Victoria hotel.
After the elaborate bill of faro hnd
been freely discussed the first toast proposed by the worshipful master was
the "Queen and Oountry,"to which
Rev. J. Robson, B.  A., responded.
In his address Mr. Robson referred
to the progress which soionce nnd literature has made during the reign of
Queen Vicoria. The bible has been
placed in the hands of the common
people and the result has hecu beneficial to the .Anglo-Saxon race. The
battle of the Bpyne marked a turning
point in British history and assured
the asoeudenoy of tho Protestant religion.
Mr. G. Ii. Lennox sang "True Britons," which was well received.
The next toast proposed was the
"Loynl Orange Asociation of British
North America," to which Rev. Mr.
Frew responded.
Mr. Frew recounted the history of
the events which led up to the gunpowder plot and showed the reasons
why the day should be celebrated
throughout the protestant world. The
Orange Association, in his opinion,
stood for civil and religious liberty
and as such he thought it should be
an enduring   association   in   Canada.
The toast, of "The Press" was responded to by Mr. Gregg of The Miner.
The toast of the "Ladies" wns eloquently replied to by Mr. D. S. Stanley.
During tho intervals between the
speeches Mr. G. L. Lennox and Mr.
Morrison and others rendered songs
which were greatly appreciated by tlie
audience. A feature of the evening
was the presence of about 25 ladies,
wives and sisters of the brethren present. The gathering dispersod about
11:30 o'clock;	
STUDENT   DUELLING.
Berlin, Nov. 6.���A serious blow has
been dealt to student duelling by the
action of the senate of the University
of Heidelberg, which has requested
eight students accused of challenging
to fight duels to leave the university
for the college for a half year. This is
the first time any German university
has taken serious action ngninst duelling and the fact that a university of
such standing has taken tbe initiative
is certain to liave important influence
in tbe direotion of the entire abolition
of duelling.

OF WAB GOES OH
A Timely Gift Which They Dispute With France Uot
Appreciate.
THE DECAY OF TURKEY
Sayings and Doings of the^GermanlRoyal
ties in Tlieir Vis t to Turkey and
to the  Holy Land,
Berlin, Nov. 15.��� Emperor William's
gift of the abode of the Virgin Mnry
to Gorman Catholics was a very clever
move and has mado a profound nnd
favorable impression among the Catholics and the remarks of the Centrist
press Nearly show this, for even the
usually venomous Germania accords
his majesty unstinted praise and snys:
" Tho possession of the abode which
has been the hearts' desire of German
Catholics for years aud which French
influence was unable to get from the
Snltan, was duo to the energetic and
well directed efforts of the Kaiser,
which achieved their object immediately where France notoriously
failed."
Tho empress during the whole of her
trip to the Orient has sent imperial
children, from every new place,pictorial post cards. When leaving Constantinople, her majesty forgot to post*
t:he::i aud she caused the imperial
yacht Holieuzollcrn to stop and went
ashore heself to carry out her promise.
Th" excuse of the Empress for the. delay was "I promised the children. "
The Turkish officials were horror
stricken at Von Buelow's fredom of
speech before '.he Eniporor, as at the
Hcrekeh. carpet lnctory whoro there
was some amusing disputes between
the Kmperor uud his foreign minister
over 'Some splendid carpets, ending
with Von Bnelow selecting some of the
best specimens. During the reception
of the diplomatic corps, thc Emperor
conversed repeatedly with the members of tbe Greek legation aud said it
would greatly please him if the attempts recently made to establish a
lasting understanding betwoen Turkey
and Greece proved sucessful. Another
remark attributed to Emperor William
occasioned great surprise. He is reported to have said: "During nine
years since my last visit, tho decay of
Turkey bad advanced rapidly. "
THE RIVAL CLAIMANTS.
Prince Louis  Napoleon's Chances  of
Empire   Are Better.
London, Nov. fi.���The Duke of Orleans, who is uow at Brussols, is being closely shadowed by French detectives. The French government has
been warned that he is preparing for
some important movement.
The activity of Prince Louis Napoleon, however, is causing more anxiety
to the Fiench government. He is evidently awaiting an opportunity and
his chances nre infinitely moro favorable than those of the Duke of Orleans.
TO PLEASE THE AMERICANS.
Loudon, Nov. fi.���In the Lord Mayor's procession ou Wednesday noxt
there will be a car emblematical of the
English speaking races, representing,
among other things, Britannia and
Columbia seated beneath a canopy,
while tho American flag will bc borne
by n British sailor and tho British
flag by an Amoricuu suilor. There
will also be an illustration of Admiral
Tatuall's "Blood is thicker than water," aud of Admiral Kimberley's repetition of the siuue thing to Captain
Knno after tbe disaster ut Apia,
Samoa.
THE CHOCOLATE MAN'S ISLAND.
Montreal, Nov. fi.���In n leading
article tonight La Patrie, referring to
Chamberlain's'messngo to the governor
general, ridicules the idea tbat there is
any danger iu Menier's possession of
Anticosti and adds if German or English millionaires owned the island
there would not be a word of com -
plaint. Menier, it says, is not in the
gulf of St. Lawrence to crente a state
and intends to . obey all the laws of
the Dominion. La Patrio expresses
satisfaction with Menier's ownership
of the island, as it means millions to
the province of Quebec.

READY FOR THE FRAY
Important Dispatches From London Fearing on the Eolations Which Now
Ex'st Towards Franoe.
Loudon, Nov. 5.���The Marquis of
Salisbury's declaration on the subject
of the withdrawal of the French mission from Fashoda, made at the Mansion house bauquot lost night in honor
of General Lord Kitchener, is not regarded here as being wholly astisfac-
tory.
Tho entire absence of any reference
to tho extraordinary naval preparations
is considerably commented upon, and
it is regarded how careful the British
premier was to explain that the evacuation of Fashoda was only in the nature of oil on the troubled waters and
tbat British diplomacy had not yet
weathered tho storm which the March-
ami mission conjured up. It is recog
uizod that the French premier, M.
Dupuy, and his colleagues intended to
carry out what Ihey had promised,
but u factor which must be rekoned
with is tho fact that there are influences at work in Paris which render
tbe existence of auy ministry precarious and iu the event of osrtniu contingencies, provoke a general upheaval. In such an event, tbe Fashoda
business, which has been more or less
carefully kept iu the backgrounds,
would be rushed to the front, in order
to distract attention from other
things and would be used as a rallying cry for all parties aud classes of
Frenchmen. The English papers point
out that the evacuation of Fashoda in
only an installment of the satisfaction
expected by Great Britain and that
France has yet to swallow the pill of
withdrawing from the Bahr El Ghazal
region. Under thesse circumstances,
tbe debate iu the French chamber of
deputies on Fashoda next week is
eagerly waited, as tbo French government is then expected to explain its
intentions regarding^ the remainder of
tho French posts in the Nile valley
established by Major Marchand.
In diplomat ic circles a reassuring
impression bas been made by M. Dupuy 's declaration of yesterday evening,
that the French government's policy
will bo based on well understood interests and that its efforts will be measured by the value of the objeots in
view. This is held to imply that the
present government will show a conciliatory attitude on the remaining
poiuts iu dispute.
It is said thnt General Kitchener
has prepared aud plaoed before the
Marquis of Salisbury a soheme defining tbe frontier of Bahr El Ghazal.
and tho positions he regards as vital
to the proper protection *t the Soudan
and Egypt. An indication of the probable character of the final arrangements of tho question is found in a
map drafted by Major Marchand
himself, which has reuched Paris in
which he sketched his route from the
river Oubangui as far as Fort Deassaix.
This map demonstrates the town of
Taiubura, which is close to the recognized frontier betweeu the French and
Egyptian possessions and is uaviguble
communication with tbe Nile. Tho
French officer established five other
posts on tho Egyptian sido of the Jam-
burn. These, tho British premier insists, France must abandon, but she
an retain Jumbura nnd the country
westward of that place. Thus France
will have an unobstructed water run
from the. Congo to Lower Egypt, without breaking upon the Bahr El Ghazal
province.
The attitude of the Mnrquis of Sulis-
lmi'y towards the commercial side of
the question is explained by the London Times, which, after reiterating
Great Britain's determination not to
allow France n foothold in the Bahr
El Ghazal produce, says: "A French
outlet to the Nile for commercial purposes is secured by our general commercial policy and may" bo doubly assured by a treaty, provided she grants
Egypt reciprocal  commercial facilities
i   the French Congo. "
Tho attitude of the Sultan of Turkey
and the Khedive of Egypt on the
Egyptian question is being closely
watched ni.d, it is said, the British
foreign office has received proofs of attempts upon the part of Franco to in-
fluueco both of thom against Great
Britain. The intrigues of Constantinople were greatly checked by the
present relations between Great Brit-
lin and Ibe Germans, and the diplomatic agent iu Egypt. Lord Cromer,
has taken the Khedive in hand and is
understood to ynivo put boforo him a
sort of ultimatum, whioh may havo
involved bis deposition iu favor of his
brother, wbercupou tho Khodive became submissive as indicated, as a
token of his submission is his willingness to visit England and pay his respects to Queen Victoria, ajduty which
he has   hitherto evaded, although  he
bas made   prolonged   visits to  several
European capitals.
A majority of the people here bave
been convinced that war between
Great Britain and Franoe is inevitable
sooner or later, and many expressions
of regret were heard at the military
and other clubs today that the conflict
is apparently not to take plaoe in tl e
near future, as it is the general belief
tbat the army and navy are in perfect
state of preparedness. The general
feeling in the country is such as would
endorse any warlike action upon the
part of the government. In any case,
work at the arsenals aud'dookyards actively and silently continues and information on tbe subject has been cur
tailed to an unprecedented extent. The
officials have strict orders not to talk.
The admiralty has suspended its oper-
tions and daily announcements of
movements of British ships abroad
and the naval men express tbe opinion that such far roaching preparations
means something far more than a naval demonstration. ��
The whole reserve squadron hns as
sembled at Devonport and is now completely fitted out and ready to sail at a
few hours' notice. Besides this,
eight reserve oruisers at Portsmouth,
three flrst class oruisers, the European,
St. George and Orescent, and five second class cruisers, the Latona, Naiad,
Sybill, Mercury and Iris, have been
ordered to be commissioned for service
with the emergency squadron.
PALMER WANTS $100,000.
Is Suing the BritiBh America Corporation for That Sum.
Mr. A. E. Palmer is suing the B.
A. C. for $100000 commission in connection with the Le Roi mine.
Palmer olaims this as his commission for carrying out the sale of the
mine to the British America Corporation and on Friday last Mr. McNeill,
barrister of Viotoria, acting for the
defence applied to Mr. Justice Irving
for $500 security for costs. Tbe defence admits that the corporation owns
a controlling interest in tbe Le Roi
stock but denies that it was procured
through the plaintiff. The case is set
for trial at Victoria but a ohange of
venuo has been applied for to Rossland. Application has been made to
the Canadian Pacific Telegraph company for copies of all telegrams passing between the plaintiff and the defendants.

ANTT-AMERICAN   TALK
The KJovernment and Semi-Offioial IPapers
are Silent and no Aid Will Be Given
Spain to Betain the Islands-
Berlin, November. 5.���The news
that the United States now demands
the whole of the Pbilippnes has created much interest here. The German
newspapers comment unfavorably upon
it. The Cologne Gazette says:
"The interest of (Jermany will be especially injured by American annexation, as the polioy of the open door,
whioh has hitherto reigned under the
Spanish flag, will be quickly end9d.
Moreover, the American demand from
a humane point of viow, is unheard
of. It means tho squeezing of a fallen
foe to tho last drop of blood nud would
sully the nnme of tbe victor. The
whole sympathies of tho world would
be on tbe side of Spain, brutally
ground down by her enemy.''
The National Zeitung poiuts out
that the Philippines in American
hands will become uot only of commercial value but of jiarnmount importance which all the powers having interests in the far east are bound to seriously consider. Therefore, the National Zeitung thinks some power may
oppose the change of ownership.
The Vossiche Zeitung lectures the
United Stales for its alleged greod,
and tbe Sn-tsebe Zeitung 9i�� "Jes tbn
United States' demand as a "piece of
characteristic Yankee impndence, "aud
calls upno Europe to put its foot down
while there is yet time.
The government of Germany aud
tho semi-official newspapers have been
silent or extremely cautious. But it
is quite evident that Germany will
not interfere iu this attempted settlement of the Philippine question nor
even encourage interference upon the
part of others, aud it is understood
that this has been intimated to the
Spanish governmennt.
WEDDING AT ENGLISH CHURCH.
There was a quiet wedding at St.
Saviours' ohurch on Saturday afternoon, when F. M. Oampbell-Cosskill,
of Halifax, N. S., and Mary B. Robinson, of St. Johns, N. B., were
joined in the bonds of holy matrimony
by the Rev. H. S. Akehurst. A full
choir was in attendance, W. A. Jowett
playing the organ. The bride, who
was married in a travelling costume
of dark blue, was given away by her
brother-in-law Mr. R. Inoe. Mrs.
Cosskill is closely related to Mrs.
Frank Fletcher and Mr. F. W. Peters,
thus in coming to Nelson, she comes
among friends.
After tbe ceremony a dainty collation was served at tho home of Mr.
and Mrs. Inoe, the happy couplo leav-

THE COPPER MARKET.
Jamos Lewis & Son's mid-monthly
report on copper, issued ut Liveerpool
on Oct. 17, is us follows:
The market for copper has beon vory

por cent.
From ��52 10s. for onsh on tho 3rd

GOVERNMENT  BUILDINGS.
In view of the fact that the Dominion government receives many thousands of dollars yearly from Nelson,
the return the city asks in the shape
of publio buildings is a small oue. Yet
the Dominion government has made
no move whatever to meet public
wishes in this respect. At most $80,-
000 would provide such buildings an
are needed and tbis sum represents
about a quarter of tbe amount annually
collected at tbis port in custom duties
alone, not to speak of other sources of
revenue the Dominion has If proper
representations were made to the department of public works, no doubt
the accommodation asked for would be
provided, but up to the present the
city has taken uo decided steps towards bringing this about. As we
said on Saturday, it is Mr. Bostock's
duty to concern himself in the needs
of his constituents hut Mr. Bostock is
not the only member of parliament
who neglects his duty in this respect.
Tbe city is at fault as much as he.
It should have insisted upon his
taking the matter up and pressing it
upon the attention of the government.
The difficulty is, there is lack of cohesion among the residents of the
place which amounts to a weakness.
What is everybody's business is nobody's business aud consequently public affairs are allowed to take care of
themselves as best tbey cati. If the
citizens wish to secure attentions
whioh are theirs by right of the influence they can weild, they will have
to show a little more energy in their
own behalf. By the spring the publio buildings they ask for should be

YUKON   ROYALTIES.
It will be noticed by reference to the
report of Major Walsh, submitted to
the department of the interior and
published in another column, that the
former administrator of the Yukon,
while dealing nt some length with the
question of royalties imposed on the
output, makes no suggestion that they
should be abolished. Nor should they.
If the country generally derived all
the benefit of the gold fields, then
there might be reasons why the oountry should bear tbe whole cost of governing the far away region, but as
tho output belongs largely to foreigners who carry their wealth out of the
oountry, it is right and proper that
they should be asked to dofray a part
of the cost of the protection and security whioh the Dominion government throws around theni. By fur
the greater number of claim owners
are Americans, who clean up their
properties and carry tho gold to Seattle, and so careful are the Seattle
steamship companies that everything
should come tbeir way that, they will
not allow their south bound steamers
to touch at* Victoria lest any advantage should fall to that eity. It is
right, therefore, to collect fees on this
gold boforo it leaves the country.
Otherwise the Dominion [government
would derive no return whatever
from it outside of certain regulation
fees, and all the cost of governing tho
territory would fall upon the people.
The royalty is uot heavy and it should
be paid willingly by claim owners cou
sideriug what they get in return, but
there are some who object In any kind
of taxes without consideration of tho
faot that taxes ure necessary to maintain the government and ensure security and stability in tbe state. Tho department of the interior would be justified in measuring the royalty and
certainly it shoold not think of reducing it.
he purchased from Mr. Corbin the Spokane and Northern railway. .Now
comes the report from Chicago that
the great railway manipulator is about
to extend his railway into the Crow's
Nest Pass couutry, paralleling the
Canadian Pacific through that district.
It is also said that his intention is
to build a line from the Great Northern's line at Jennings along the banks
of the Kootenay river to Windermere lake.. This latter seems improbable, but tbere is strong reason for
the Great Northern to somehow get
into the Pass, and that is the great
traffic which the ooal fields in the- pass
promise. Montana and Washington
must have this coal as it can be laid
down much cheaper than coal from
the last. There ;are tvyo ways ' in
which the Great Northern oan reach
the Pass; one by building from Great
Falls and coming in from the east and
tbe other by building from Bonner's
Ferry in Idaho, both of which places
are on the main line of the Great
Northern. There is a third way and
that iB by connecting tbe Spokane &
Northern with a line running into the
Pass.
Bnt Mr. Hill's intention seems to be
far more ambitious than this. It is
gathered that he aims at having a
line through tbe Pass and across coun
try into the Kettle river region, and
that application is to be made to the
Dominion parliament at its next session for a charter empowering the
Great Northern company to construct
such a line. It is scarcely likely that
Mr. Hill meditates operations so extended. Wbat he will apply for, it
is probable, is reconsideration of the
Kettle river charter, refused at the
last session of parliament and the old
fight will be fought over again. It is
not known what line the Canadian
Pacifio railway will take in opposing
the formidable rivalry which the Great
Northern would establish should that
company secure the privilege it seeks.
That it will oppose the granting of a
charter is certain and as it has the
faculty for securing strong support in
parliament the struggle is likely to be
a severe one. At present too little is
known about the Great Northern's
intentions to form nu opinion regard
ing them, but ono thing is certain that
the Canadian Pacifio company will not
relinquish any of the territory it be
lieves to be within its control with
out a stubborn, fight.
THE  BITTNER   THEATRE OO.
GREAT NORTHERN AND C. P. R.
A great struggle betweeu tho Canadian Pacific and the Great* Northern
railways for the traffic of southern
British Columbia is now said to bo
within the early possibilities. It has
long boen known that Mr. Hill has
had a covetous eye upou this region
and that as a preliminary to occupation of it  as   a competitor for  traffic
The   Saturday   Matinee���A    Crowded
House to See "Charley'B Aunt."
On Saturday afternoon the Bittrier
Theatre company gave �� matinee to
the children, reproducing "The Dia
mond Mystery." The small folks were
delighted . at the play, which is very
funny in places, and the fact that each
youngster received a bag of .candy by
no means attracted from tbeir pleas
nre. On Saturday evening there was
a large andience assembled to see
"Charley's Aunt," which kopt the
audience in fit's of laughter from stnrt
to finish. The plot of the play, which
is probably familiar to most, is briefly
as follows:
Jack Cbesney and Charley Wyck-
haiu, two Oxford graduates, nre about
to give a luncheon party to Kitty and
Amy, two girls with whom they are
in love, at which Don'naLucia d'Avla-
dores, Charley's Aunt.who has spent
most of her life in Brazil, is expected
to appear and chaperon tbe young
ladies. At the last moment a telegram is received from "Donna Lucia
saying she cannot be thare, and iu desperation the two -.young men prevuil
upon their friend Lord Fancourt Bob-
bersley, to personate the Brazilian millionairess, whom none of the party
have seen. Bobbersley consents, and
the most amusing complications ensue.
He kisses tbe girls on all possible occasions, to the intense indignation bf
their respective lovers, and both Sir
Francis Ohesney, Jaok's father, who
returns from India in time for the
luncheon, and Stephen Pettigrew,
Amy's deoripit old uncle insists on
proposing to him and his supposed
millions. '' Babes,'' however, succeeds
in getting Pettigrew's consent in
writing to Amy's and his ward Kitty's
marriage to their young lovers.
Tbe real Donna Lucia appears on
the scene and turns out to be au old
love of Sir Franoeis, but uot uutil
tbey havo settled to get married nt
last, is hur indentity made known,
and the various tangles straightened
out.
E. B. Kelly as "Charley's Aunt"
wus a great success. He is not indebted in any way to any of his predecessors in tho part, but took his own
lino from tho start, with tlio rosult
that his impersonations of the Brazilian millionairess was possibly the funniest thing ever seen in Nelson. J.
Widdiin aud E. Mitchell, in the
parts of Jaok and Charlie respectively
were very good, the former's Indefinite way of proposing causing roars of
laughter. W. W. Bittner made the
most of his opportunities as Sir Francis, while W. Fredericks representation of the decrepit uncle's senile love
and energertio search for tho pseudo
Charley's Aunt. L. McClellaud, ns
Brasset the Irish servant, made quite
a hit. He was vory fuuuy, and his
multitudinous duties nppenred to include lending the money with whicli
he was tipped.
Miss Mattio Choate mnde a lovely
Kitty which fully accounted for Jack's
infatuation. Mrs. Bittner, as the
lively Amy, contributed greatly to tbe
dash and go which characterized the
whole production. The refined and
dignified carriage of Miss Milly Stephens, the real Donna Lucia, was a
great contrast to the antics of her impersonator.
Amoug the specialties was a song
nnd dnnco by thoso favorites L. McClelland and O. Moran. who obtained
a well earned encore. The Waragraph
I was again to tho fore with somo good
I pictures including a Spanish bull
fight, and tho marino artillery   firing.
It may be remarked here tbat thein
I has been a good deal of  complaint of
tho way in which a large number of
ladies insist on wearing immense hats
during the performances, quite oblivious
of the fact that, however beautiful,
they are not transparent, but greatl y
obstruct tbe view of those behind,
Tho Bittuer company, who will re-
mnin in Nelson tho rest of the week,
play "Cju, Belle Marie" this   evening,
AO OIDENT AT ERIE.
Thero was an accident yesterday
morning to one of the workmen ou
tlie Erie wagon road on wliich W. D.
Glaze has the contract. It appears that
the men were blasting some rock, ami
after the shot had beeu fired, the foreman, who does the shooting, told ono
of the men that he thought that one
of the shots had not been exploded.
J. McDonald, one of the workmen, apparently did not hear him, for, on returning to the place, be stiuck an iron
scraper into a hole, saying: "What
is the matter with this hole?"
The cap instantly exploded wounding McDonald seriously about the face
aud eyes, and slightly injuring another. Fortunately the charge itself
did not explode. The injured man
was brought into town yesterday afternoon, and taken to the Kootenay
Lake General hospital under the cure
of Dr. Hall. It is hoped that Ihe sight
of one of tW'-Whu's eyes will bc saved.

" EYESIGHT
-IS-
PRTdEIiESS
Your eyesight is too precious to be npgle-ted or trifled with hy those
not thoroughly acquainted with the science of optics and retraction- .
The popular opinion that the use of glasses should be postponed as
long as possible is erronous. If vision is improved by .holding reading
matter rurther from the eyes than usual or the eyes become tired after
using them for a time at near vision, glasses should be resortsd to at
once, for the longer the eyes are deprived of the aid which they need
and consequently subjected to strain, the more rapidly will defects increase. If your eyesight'is not good or the eyes trouble you in any way
we will test them free of charge. If you don't need glasses we will tell
you so and it costs you nothing. In fact you will know yourself if the
eyes are benefited by them. If you should wear glasses we have the
largest and best assorted stock in the province and will furnish them
them scientifically adjusted at eastern prices.

THE MINEK   MONDAY, NOVEMBER 7,  1898.
THE INTRIGUER OF
TBE CRAFTY TURK
Dupuy, the French Minister
Makes a Stroke.
SULTAN SIQNS A LEASE
Of the Bahr ��1 Ghazal to tho Frenoh.
This Will Give Them Bight of Occupation and They Will Stay.
New York, Nov. 5.���A special despatch from Paris to the Herald says:
Although there is no official confirmation as yet of the news to the effect
that England has resolved to proclaim
a protectorate over Egypt, yet aotion
of this kind on the , part of England
has uot only been discussed, but been
determined upon, and the proclamation in question will be issued at an
early date.
The cause for this is the discovery
by Great Britain of certain negotiations now in progress at Constantinople ..between the French government and the Sublime Porte. The latter is so exasperated against Great
Britain for its humiliating expulsion
of the Turkish troops aud Turkish authorities from Crete that it is ready
to do anything to be revenged upon
John Bull. France is taking advantage of this ill-will of Abdul-Hamid
toward England, and in the following
manner:
Great Britain has objected to the
presence of France either at Fashoda
or in tho reconquered Egyptian province of JBabr El Ghazal, on the
ground that the latter is Egyptian territory. Now, Egypt fnr the present
constitutes legally nnrt theoretically
au integral portion of the Ottoman empire. The Khedive ranks at Constantinople as a mere provinoial govornor,
receives his investiture from the Sultan, and ranks after the grand vizier.
This being the case the Sultan has
full legal right to dispose of his provinces as he sees fit, nnd I learn on
tho highest authority that, with the
object of embarrassing Great Britain
and revenging himself upon Lord Salisbury for the affront to which ho has
beeu subjected in connection with
the Cretau embrnglio, ho has signed
a firman granting to the French government a leasehold of the Bahr El
Ghazal province, nnd conferring upon France tho exclusive right toa military oooupntiou nf tho district.
Tt is the knowledge of this intrigue at
Constantinople v. hi h reflects no little
ingenuity on M. Doloasse, the foreign
minister here Hint is preciptiating
the proclauition of the portectorate
over Egypt by Oroat Britain. Of
course there is not the slightest chance
of England submitting tamely to the
possession by Franoe of Nile provinces
which she has reconquered for Egypt
at. the expense of much blood and
treasure, and it is doubtful whether
the firman of the Sultan will ever receive execution. But at the same time
it cannot be denied that it vastly
strengthens the position of France in
the Bahr El Olinzal. In fact, it
gives Franco a legal righ t to the nro-
vinoe, which England does not possess. England's presence in Egypt is,
according to the admission of her own
principal statesmen, both abnormal
and illegal. It is based not on right,
but on might. Franoe's claim to the
Bahr El Ghazal henceforth is based
on right, since tlio Sultan has a prerogative of leasing tlie provinces of his
empire to whicliovorffpower   he   lists.
Another feature in connection with
this affair is tlm fact that, whereas
the Anglo-Egyptian statesmen are for
tho present restricted exclusively to
the bauks of the Nile, Major Marchand has during the past two years established a number of military stations in the Bnhr El Ghazal. There
is a French station and fortress at
Kodjaloh, on tho Souweh river, which
runs into tho Nile, and which is navigable. There is another French fort
and garrison at Fort Dessaix lower
down on tho Souweh at the old quarters of Gessi Pasha, who was the
prinoipal lieutenant"of (ieneral Gordon
when the latter mind the Soudnn,
prior to 1882, as Egyptian governor
in chief. Othor Kreueli stations have
beon established at the Tamboura, at
Rounbek, at Ayak, nnd about u dozen
other places in the Bahr El Gazal province.
BARATIEK'S REVELATIONS.
The French hnvo likewise on the
Souweh river, whioh, as stated above,
is navigable down to a point whore it
joins the Nile, a oouule of steam
launches, each armed with guns, ard
naniod tho Faidhorbe nnd the Nil,
and about in ligliiors of steel and
alnmiuuni, all nf which it had transported at the oost of extraordinary labor over land from tlie extreme point
whero the Congo nnd its tributary
stream cease to be navigable to the
point where the Souweh river iu turn
became navigable.
According to Cnptnin Baratier, to
whom I nm indebted for this infonna-
ton. and who, as one of Marohaud's
chief lieutenants, arrived here a fow
days ago with Fashoda despatches, all
these forts nnd stations in the Bahr
El Ghazal are well equipped and provisioned, and a significnut ntteranoe
of the captain, which indicates the
determination of Franco to hold thn
Bahr El Gnhzul stations against nil
comers, is tbe chance remark that nt
one moment last spring, when news
was brought by the natives that a
force of biack troops was on its way up
to the 1 *ihr El Ghazal provinco under white officers, measures were immediately adopted by the French
Marohand expedition to resist the advance of this force, which was believed to be that oommanded by Major
MoDonald, of tho British army.
From  this  it  will be seen that, al
though Major Marchand has left Fash-
oda, it does not by auy means follow
that France has relinquished her resolve to hold on to the Bahr El Ghazal
province, and to a foothold ou the
banks of the Nile. Of course, much,
nay, all, will depend npon the extent
to which France can look for support
to Russia in any difficulty which she
may have with England.
RUSSIA WILL ASSIST.
The Eclair today says it learns on reliable authority that the Fashoda question will be settled favorably to Great
Britain by the recall of Major Marchand. France the paper adds, yields
all, reserving only the question of the
right to the Bahr El Ghazal district,
which she does not consider as belonging to Egypt.
Continuing the Eclair remarks:
"M. Delcasse however,, has now decided to raise the whole Egyptian
question, whioh should bave been dono
at the flrst, and thus avoided the humiliation of yielding to the British
ultimatum. When the question is
thus enlarged, France will not be
alone in its discussion with the Marquis of Salisbury.
"Egypt interests all the powers.
Russia has promised M. Delcasse its
most effective assistance, and besides,
Germany has the biggest interest, in
view of her East African possessions
and trade in the far east, that the Suez
canal should not become exclusively
British, and is disposed to support
Franco-Russian arguments for a definite settlement of the Egyptian question."
