editorially discussing the plebi��i<jte,
after commenting on the icihangml
attitude of Ontario from IHOi ijti tlie
marked redaction of the majority for
prohibition and the strongly opposite
sentiment of the maritime provinces
on the ono hand aud Quebec on the
other, says, the thought most obviously suggested by the figures is the
localization of the question. With a, majority of 35,000 for prohibition in the
maritime provinces, we have Quebec
at the other extremity with ahout that
number against und it would be futile
to shut oui eyes to the difficulty these
two facts present. They constitute almost an irreconcilable situation.
With respect to tho si/.e of the vote
the general opinion mnst be, thut it is
fairly satisfactory. There uro variations which aro difficult to account
for, but from comparison of such
figures us uro to hand, with thc vote
in the Dominion elections of 18fH>, it
looks us if the vote is entitled to be
considered as a fair test of public opinion. We would like to have K-eeu as
full a vote as at the general elections,
for no more important question could
come np for decision. It seems, however, impossible to create the same interest and incitement; there are not
the same mtditplied agencies for bringing out the vote and the feeling, thut
even the pres's shares to nomo extent,
that it is a case for each man's conscience, rather than for argument, prevent anything liko a full vote.
THE MALL-EMPIRE   OPINION.
The Mail aud Umpire says at the
close of a short* editorial on the subject
tiie interesting ft-iatuuB of the returns is
the attitude of the province of Quebec.
The campaign there -igainst prohibition bore fruits at the ballot box. On
the whole it seems' prohablt< that over
the whole country then: will be a
small prohibition majority. A good
many people havo imagined ihat this
would mean the eua.ctmeiit erf itho law.
This is a mistake. A majimtv of a
million would enact nothing. The
plebiscite was really an order upon the
prohibitionists to show np or shut op,
and we rather thinic the gov -irnU'Vtiit
will tell them to "shut up."

to get out their treasuro and deliver it
over. The gold was in the pack on
the horse. There was no help for it,
and Follner took off the pack and produced the sacks. One of the robbers
covered them while the other took the
gold. Follner handed over $1,800, the
result of two years in the Yukon, and
Fraser parted" with $2,800 taken out
this summer from a Klondike creek.
The robbers backed off into the bush
aud disappeared
The next morning and further down
the trail about four miles, they came
upon tho body of Ike Martin, a former
partner of .Tack Dalton's lying ill the
road dead with his throat cut. About
$4000 which he is known to have had
was missing. He lived out on the trail
at the Dalton post. This deed may
have been committed by Indians.
The police are hunting the robbers
and murderers, aud bv this time may
be upon the trail. There is considerable excitement among the Chilkat
Indians, as they fear they may be
blamed. Fraser und Follner didn't
have a cent, but the little steamer
Pilgrim brought them to this city
without charge.
BACK  FROM   HONOLULU.
The United States Congressional Committee at San Francisco.
San Francisco, Sept. 30.���The steamship Gaelic arrived here today from
Houg Kong and Y-okohama. vis Honolulu, bringing tbe congressional committee from the latter place. Under
date of September 23, the Honolulu
correspondent of the Associated Press
writes that the congressional committee, having completed its work,
Senator Culloni and Morgan and Congressman Hitt left for Washington,
where they will IiqIiT a meeting on
Nowiuber 14, which will be attended
by Justice Frear and probably by
President Dole.
DurifiK the last few days of their
stay iu Honolulu a number of petitions
were sent to the committee by the
various foreign residents. The American party which claims to represent
the American element in the island,
presented a memorial requesting that
the committee commeud a liberal form
of government for the territories. The
memorial further 'avors a liberal
suffrage and the extension of the
United States tariff and shipping laws
to Hawaii. The memorial asserts that
it is for tho best interests of the island
that the first governor of Hawaii
should be ono who is not bound by
any tie, political or otherwise, to any
purty or clas3 of residents in Hawaii

Victoria, Sept, 29.���Tho City of
Topeka from north ports, brings down
the following story:
On August ill last, four men, A. H.
Fraser aud E. L. Follner, of Seattle,
and Ball Blum und Sam Burrett, of
Omaha, left Fort Selkirk, coming outby the Dalton trail. They had two
pack horses. On the evening of September 16, when approaching Pleasant;
camp near the lust police, post on tho
trail, and about 60 miles from Haines*
Mission on the Lynn canal, they wera
stopped by highwaymen. The party
had got separated, Blum and Barrett,
it is supposed, aro behind and are ex-
pcted out in a few days. No suspicion
attaches to them. Fraser and Follner
were the two ahead and had one of
three pack horses. It wasi between (>
and 7 o'clock in the evening, raining
hard and quite dusk. Suddenly in

Toronto, Sept. 30.���Mr. McNicoll,
passenger traffic manager of the C. P.
R., and W. E, Davis, general passenger
agent of the G. T. R., have returned
to the city from New York, where
they attended the meeting of the
trunk lilies passenger committee,
which had under consideration a number of important railway matters. A
great deal of curiosity has been aroused
us to intentions of the C. P. R., with
regard to the local cut rates, wliich
were not restored at the same time as
tbe transcontinental rates. Mr. McNicoll states that the matter stands
just where it did when the local cut
rates were put iuto effect. The excuse for the action is considered to be
jnst as much in evidence now as it
was then. He gave it to be understood
that so long as the Grand Trunk
showed a disposition to play into the
hands of the American railways, as
against tlie interests of the Canadian
North West, by diverting their traffic
to the United States, so long would
the present form of punishment for
tho Grand Trunk be maintained.

at Pana, Illinois, whero there is
trouble between imported negroes ajud

According to information received by
tho locul Miners' Union, 100 negroes
are on tlieir way to Sorrento from
Mercer county, Illinois, to take union
miners' places in the coal mines.
Immediately upon receipt of this in
formation un alarm was sent to the

SLOAN'S METHOD CRITICISED.
Sporting papers and other journals
this morning publish comments upon
Sloan's phenomenal success here and
on the high prices realized at the sale
of Mr. Haggin's fillies. The Snorts-
man devotes an article to Sloan's success which praises highly his method,
but still is loath to believe that the
English idea of riding is all wrong.
The Sportsman expresses tho opinion
that in a close finish jockeys like
Mornington, Cannon and Watts would
have the advantage, but* says, "Sloan,
however, does not permit a close finish. ''

A NEW POLITICAL It SUE.
The struggle for prohibition in this
couutry has ouly begun. Flushed by
their success of Thursday the prohibitionists will press for the legislation which they were led to expect
when the Dominion government agreed
to submit tho question to the people
in order to ascertain publio feeling on
the subject. So prohibition becomes a
political issue which will tax the power
of legislators to deal with. The French
section of the Canadian people is
strongly opposed to auy further restrictions than those we have upon
the liquor tratlie, while the Anglo-
Saxon portion, by far the larger, has
pronounced against auy liquor traffic
whatever. This marks a aistinct division of the people, which will no
doubt lie made much of by the pro-
hibitionsits and will bring into prominence racial considerations better let
alone. If all the provinces but Quebec
can bo shown to favor the restrictive
law under cousideiation, aud if Quebec insists upon being a law unto
itself, anrl attempts to override Federal
authority by the assertion of the
right of the province to control its own
affairs in this respect, as is said to be
the intention in Quebec should prohibition be enacted, then the contest
will assume another aspect and not an
agreeable one to contemplate. Take
the situation all round aud there is
little comfort anywhere in it to the
politicians at Ottawa.
PREMATURE OBITICISM.
The Victoria Colonist, which would
not seo anything commendable in the
action of the Dominion government, no
macter how worthy of praise it might
be, indulged in criticism the other day
that was nonsensical when considered
in tho proper light. A telegraph despatch came from Quebec to the effect
that there was a proposal beforo the
conference to surrender to the Americans Canada's right to take seals in
the northern Pacilie in return for the
conceding of territory at tho head of
Lynn caual, giving an entirely Canadian route to the Yukon region. Thero
is no evidence that this despatch was
founded on actual occurences in the
conference. The gathering is ono of
diplomats selected to settle most important matters and experience teaches
that such bodies do not give imperfect
reports to correspondents to send out as
truth. If any such proposal as this
has been before tho conference it may
bo taken for granted that not the ownership of a small district at Lynn
canal,but tho whole Alaskan boundary
disputo was, under consideration, and
if Canada can settlo the difficulty by
agreeing to withdraw from pelagic
sealing in Behring sea sho would
make a good bargain. The sealing industry i.s not a permanent one. Carried
on as at present tho day must come
wheu thero will be no profit in it.
But Canada's possession of the coast
line of British Columbia, now absurdly
claimed as United States territory under the Alaskan treaty, would last for
all time and thore can be no question
of the wisdom of tho action which
would give her possession of even a
portion of it on such terms. The
Hon. Mr. Martin is at Quebec and can
be depended upon to manage this
matter with ability. And until all
tho facts aro known it is useless to
pass any opinion as to what tho government may or may not have in contemplation. To go on tho assumption
that all reports from Quebec are true
or partly true aud to found denunciation of the (-(overment upon them, as
the Colonist did, i.s shallow end unwise.
lt is said that the Germans have
been secret abettors of Aguinaldo, the
Philippine insurgent, and have supplied him with arms since long before tho war with the United States
broke out. They have had a covetous
eye upon the islands and it was their
belief that the rebellion there would
have furnished a pretext for their intervention. It is also said that it was
through German advice that the insurgent chief refused to accept American rule and declared for complete independence. It may be that Germany
will overreach herself with the unstable rebels aud bring about complications wliich may result in serious
trouble with the United States.
The lirst venture into the foreign
field by the United States has raised a
host of diffieulites and had they been
foreseen it i.s doubtful whciher the
Americans would have been so eager
to aid the semi-savages that appealed
to them in the name of freedom, uot
knowing the meaning of that word.
To manage Cuba and the Philippines
will be a thankless and exasperating
task for men not accustomed (o placating anyone ann it may be that both
will be handed over to the natives to
rulo as they see fit. Thus they will be
allowed to fight it out among themselves.
Tho anti-prohibitionists are beginning to explain their reverse on the
plea that their voters did not go to the
polls in any numbers and that it was
not a fair expression of opinion. The
prohibitionists can reply that they
had a majority of thuse who considered
it their duty to go to the polls and
that if all the electors had gone the
majority would have been much

catering to that class of trade. Our customers are many

We are about to vacate our present premises at the end

us in handling our increasing trade.
To the people we would say that if they should notice
tbat onr place of business is closed at 7 p. in., not to suppose, as did a frieud of ours who came into town to see us
last week, that we were in financial difficulties. On being
asked his reasons for his suppositions, he said it looked like
it on the face of things, and he was convinced tbat it was
a dead sure thing if we sold goods to everyone as cheap as
we did to him. He evidently forgot our motto "Fairness

YUKON OFFICIALS.
ATLANTIC
The   Toronto Globe Says   That au Investigation Should be Held.
Toronto, Sept. 80.��� The Globe, on the
Yukon administration, says:
"The most familiar charge, that of
favoritism iu registration, implies
an entire disregard for the regulations
in force. A charge made in thc Kingston Whig by Kev. D. Gardiner, is to
the effect that when an application for
registration was made, the ollieials
sent out mounted police to ascertain
if the claim was rich, iu the meantime denying registration on some
pretext, ff found valuable prior registration is granted to some favorite.
the official sharing in the proceeds of
the fraud. The charge oi' collecting
fees for prompt delivery of letters is
a serious one, although the amounts
said to be involved may he infinitely
less than in tlie recording nf mining
claims. Jnstice to tbe officials demands
that- the matter be thoroughly investigated, lt is-not the sole concern of
Hon. Sir. Sifton nor of the Ottawa
ministry; it involves the honor of the
Dominion. Tin* eves of the world are
on Canada.and it is necessary to show
the world ihat Canada is honest as
well   as   enterprising.     Let  everyone
who feels aggrieved or wronged he
given to understand that his complaints
will be thoroughly investigated, and
every doubt and suspicion regarding
the Yukon administration wiil bc
cleared away. "
