Stirring Events of the Past
Few Days.
Tho  Ozar's Proposal of Continental Tis-
armament   Opens   the Eyes of
Frenchmen aB to Iheir Ally-
London, .Sept. 10.���Tliat thore is no
close time in polities has been abundantly proved by tlio events of tho past
fortnight, a period during which tbo
statesmen wore supposed to bo enjoying their holiday, but which wit-
nesso.'i a series of world slinking public events.
The czar's pe.ieo receipt, tho tragical
re-opening of tbo D- yfus case, the
Anglo-German agreement, the re-
conquest of tbe Soudan, the massacre
of British troops in Crete and the dismissal of Li Hung (lining from tbo
Chinese foreign office, aro all compressed into the fortnight ending today
and all arc still as keenly discussed
as on the day which saw their birth.
The oloser the czar's proposal is
scrutinized, llie more ihe people aro
confirmed in the belief that, it is an
outcome of Anglo-American friendship, li is patent to overy one, and the
moro rapid will be the growth of
Anglo-American cordially, which has
been in tlio air fur a year past. The
Becrotary of state for the colonies, Mr.
Joseph Chamberlain,whon interviewed
on his arrival at New York, voiced tho
sentiment prevailing when he remarked that there was nothing peculiar
about the disarmament proposal coming from such u sourco ut such a
time. In short it is regarded here as a
lullaby intended to turn Groat Britain
back to the policy of drift from which
Russia's overt acts of unfriendliness
threatened to cause hor to diverge.
Much greater faith i.s placed in tbo
pending negotiations between London
and St. Petersburg, which presage a
friendly agreement in regard to China,
than in tbo czar's millenium,
It is difficult at a disatneo to realize

|\   Spiritod   20 Mile   Go on the Manhattan Beach Track.
New York, Sept. 10. ��� Jimmy Michael, tho  Welshman, met his erstwhile
:onqueror, "Major"   Taylor, tho   col-
rcd   rider, in  a   20   milo   unlimited
iacod   raco   on tho Manhattan   Beach
icyclo track, this  afternoon and won
i good stylo.    Michael smarted under
ofoat by Taylor, two  weeks   ago,   in
lhe  best two out   of  three, one   mile
accd   heats, and he   prepared himself
irefully for tbo distance.   Taylor was
.unisy in his picking up  of   the pace
|ud lost it  during   the  contest, while
liohael'a every  move was  as perfect
S clockwork.    Both  got behind   their
aco immediatley and in the   first  lap
lylor gained 15  yards.    At   tbe   end
tho first mile the colored   rider  had
lined 00 yards. His time was 1.46 1-5
,d Michael's 1.60 2-5.   In the last lap
of the second mile Taylor lost his pace
and at the end of the second mile
Michael had pulled down Taylor's advantage to 10 yards. In the third
milo Michael got on equal terms and
soon gained 20 yards on his opponent
wbo had difficulty in keeping with
the pace.
Michael's mon worked together and
brought him to the rear of Taylor's
wheel in the seventh mile and on tho
next lap Michaels passed Taylor. Taylor was 11 2-5 seconds ahead at the finish of the fifth mile, but when the
next threo miles were covered Michaels led by 17 8-5 seconds aud continued to increase the lead in each succeeding lap. In the last lap Michael
was two laps to the good, while Taylor did not finish. The official verdict
of tbo judges was that Mieheal won by
a lap and a half and 110 yards, which
fully calculated is about lilOO yards.
Political   Affairs   in   Spain   are  Very
Much Complicated.
Madrid, Sept. 10.���The position of
the ministry has been greatly shaken
by the charges made today (Friday)
against the government collectively
and individually by Senor Caualejas,
editor of El Heraldo. and now recognized as tbo lieutenant in the newly
organized party headed by Gonoral
Polavieja. It is believed that Senor
Caualejas has documents to support
his accufa-rir.ns of thi iiicapactiy
against Lioutonant. Governor Correa.
minister for war, and Captain Aunon,
minister of marine. The majority of
the cabinet, listened to the speech and
tbo silence of tho ministerial deputies
was most* suggestive. A minister in
reply to a question as to the rumors
that a ministerial crisis was imminent, said it, was idle to conceal tho fact
that a crisis was inevitable and would
come next week, after the chambers
had adoptod the governments bill,
authorizing the alienation of national
territory   as a condition of peace.
Victoria, Sopt. 10.���Argument in

Was'the Great Chinaman, Li Hung Ohang.
Dismissed From Office���At the Instance of Sir Chas. Maodonald.
Pekin, Sept. 10.���An imperial edict,
announcing that the emporor has no
further need of Li Hung Chang's services as a minister of the Chinese
office, was promulgated on Thursday.
It is a short, eout dismissal for which
uo reasons are given. He presumably
remains in office as grnnd secretary.
The news of Li Hung Chang's dismissal was uot unexpected. A growing distrust of tbe great Chinese statesman has been observed for some time
post among his colloagnes. It will be
a great blow to Russia, with which
country Li Hung Chang has faithfully served for months past. Whenever the foreign officers received the
British minister, Sir Claude Macdonald, iu audience, Li iminediateely visited tho Russian minister and reported
tho wholo proceedings to him. Thon,
lately there have boen indications that
Li Hung Chang was wholly in the
service of Russia, and on Saturday
last, in the presence of the foriegu
officials, Sir Claude Macdonald, reproached Li Hung Chang for his conduct and his dismissal from the foreign office was probably the immediate consequence. It is said that Russia
will strenonsly endeavor to bring about
the reinstatement of Li Hung Chang.
The courage of the latter gave him
tho leadership of the foreign offlco in
which he was the only minister prepared to vigorously answer harsh foreign demands.
A panicky feeling prevades officialdom here. The emperor is daily edict-
ing dismissals or promotions without
apparent causes. A new edict required
tho viceroys to send to the capital lists
of men capable of bearing arms. This
is looked upon as indicating the origin
of a militia on tho American model.
Fire Swept Fiercely
the Town.

New Westminster, via Vancouver,
Sopt. 11.���(Special to Tbe Miner)���
About midnight Saturday fire broke out
in the neighborhood of tho Queen's
hotel, exactly how and where being a
matter of dispute impossible to settle
as yet. The fire brigade was called
out but before the firemeu got to work
the fire had enveloped the Queen's
hotel and was rapidly spreading to
adjaceut property. Tha appliances for
fighting fire though sufficient for an
ordinary fire were of little avail in
stopping a general conflagration and
that was what the fire speedily became. The water supply was totally
inadequate and it soon became evident
that the fire had tho mastery. From
house to house, from store to store, it
spread, westreward long the main
street and south towards Front street
and the water front, and structure
aftor structure went down before it.
Never was there such a sight on this
coast. The burning of Vancouver 10
years ago was nothing to this great
fire. The flames Bwept ovor hundreds
of acres, licking up everything before
them. It is impossible at this writing
to give a list of the buildings destroyed
or an accurate statement of the loss,
nor is it likely that it will be forthcoming tonight.
Between 250 and ,100 buildings were
destroyed, including churches, hotels,
stores, warehouses, workshops and
residences. 'From tho Queen's hotel
westward to the Royal^Plauiug mills
the fire made a clean swoop, leaving
nothing but ruin in its path. The
only store left is Harvey's on Front
street and Hogan's hotel is the only
saloon left in town. There aro many
hundreds homeless and penniless
through tho fire and prompt measures
of relief will have to be taken. The
disaster is simply appalling.
Great preparations had been made
for the holding of the provincial exhibition, the dato of the opening being
fixed for Ocotber 5. What effect the
fire will have upon the undertaking
remains to be seen.
nials from the government who seriously feared that if such overdrawn
versions of the affair obtained credence, Germany's friendly relations with
Russia would be endangered. The
most significant statement made was
by an official who has the full confidence of the minister for foreign
affairs, Baron Von Bulow. It was as
'' An understanding has been reached
between England and Germany on
certain points wliich have long been
under discussion and on some new
questions. The agreement is limited
and far from being of the wide reaching nature represented by tho newspapers. The reports in the English
newspapers are mostly guess work, the
wish beiug father to tho thought.
There have beeu old questions in dispute such as Poiidoland in southwest
Africa. These are now settled, besides other questions wliich might
have caused difficulty in the future,
such as Delagoa bay and a joint loan
to Portugal. The significance of the
agreement however, does not lie in the
importance of the subject matter, but
iu the fact that it furnishes the basis
for more cordial relations. The emperor's telegram was doubtless scut
after he had knowledge of the completion of tho agreement aud as indicative of his intent to carry out the
spirit of the new understanding." It
will be observed that the German
official carefully avoids the use of the
word treaty.
A high official tells the London correspondent of the Associated Press that
the agreement between Great Britain
and Germany was a necessary preliminary to their joining the czar's conference. In regard to the latter, a
member of the Russian embassay says
he does not look for an early conference and he admits the possibility of
the refusal of one of the powers to
join, in which case it would be
The foregin office says that the emperor's spesch at Porta, in which he
said a good army v, as the best assur-
.anco of peace, has been misconstrued.
It is added that his majesty, in bis
remarks, was in no way opposed to
the czar's peace proposal, which the
German foreign office construes as
merely a proposition to stop the further
extension of armaments.
Assassination ofthe Empress,
of Austria.
A Steamer on the  Route From White
Horse Rapids to Dawson City.
Victoria, Sept. 10.���Mr. James McAulay, of this city, arrived back from
Dawson today, having been one of a
party of 100 who took passage on the
river steamer Columbian on her first
trip to Whito Horse rapids from Dawson. The Columbian waa built at
Victoria for the Canadian Development
company, aud taken in by way of St.
Michaels. Though 150 feet long and
the largest craft that has yet appeared
on the upper river, she found plenty of
water Jill the way, but lost fire days
on sandbars through lack of information as to the channols to be followed.
The Anglican, owned by tho same
company, made a successful trip from
Teslin lako with a party of Canadian
troops, but returning was uuable to
proceod more than 70 miles up the
Hootainqua river. Thorefore, proceeding back down the Hootalinqua, sho
struck a rock 15 miles from tho mouth
(Aid was abandoned by the crow, who
returned to Pelly, whero they met Mr.
Maitland Kersey, manager of the company, he having boon a passenger by
the Colnmbia. The Canadian Pacific
Navigation company's steamer Yukon
reached Dawson on August 22, having
made the trip from St. Michaels in
eight days. Capt. Irving proposed
to take her back to St. Michaels.
Berlin Says the Agreement Is Limited
and Has Been Exaggerated.
Berlin, Sept. 10.���The news of the
important understanding arrived at between Germany and Great Britain has
caused a sensation. The matter engrossed public attention throughout
the week. The first reports were so
exaggerated as to  draw out formal de-

the house of W. Viner, second hand
dealer, 223 Carig stret, last night and
almost caused the death of Viner, his
wife and threo children. Viner woke
about !) o'clock in the morning with
a suffocating sense and desperately
rousing himself and opening the window found his wife and children unconscious. He called for assistance
and with great difficulty ail were resuscitated. Examination showed the
house had been entered by burglars
through the basement window and in
stepping down the burglars had broken

New York, Sept. 10.���The S. S. City
of Rome sailed at noon today for
Portsmouth, N. H. She had on board
94 officers ond men of Admiral Cervera's squadron. Some of these are so
badly wounded that they will never
reach their native land. Three were
in the throes of death when the vessel
swung into the stream. At Portsmouth the City of Rome will take on
board Admiral Cervera, his staff and
1400 of the Spanish naval prisoners.
Captain D. Victor Concas, of the Infanta Maria Teresa, and Captain Eu-

Arrest ofthe Aisassin-
Geneva, Switzerland, Sept. 10.���The
Empress of Austria was assassinated
at the hotel Beaurivage this afternoon
by an anarchist, who was arrested.
He stabbed her majesty with a stiletto.
The Empress of Austria, wife of
Francis Joseph of Austria and King of
Hungary, was born December 24, 1837.
She was a daughter of Duke Maximil-
lian of Bavaria and was married April
24, 1854. It appear her majesty was
working from her hotel to the landing
place of the steamer about 1 o'clock,
when an Italian anarchist suddenly
approached and stabbed her to the
heart. The empress fell, got up again,
and was carried to the steamer unconscious. Thu boat started, but seeing
that the empress had not recovered
consciousness, the captain returned and
the empress was carried to |the hotel
Beaurivage, where she expired.
Berne, Switzerland, Sept. 10.���The
president of Switzerland and other
members of the government were
stunned with horror and grief when the
news reached tbe palaco that the em-
prees, so beloved by all Europeans, nad
fallen a victim to an assassion within
the borders of their country. They
immediately arranged to hold an extraordinary federal council on Sunday
morning, in order to consider the
measures to take against the assassin.
The latter must bo tried according to
the statues of tho canton in which
the crime was committed, which forbids capital punishment, and makes
life imprisonment tho severest penalty
which can be imposed.
When the Austrian minister, Count
Kuefstoin, was informed of the tragedy, he hurried to the palaco and was
met with expressions of deepest sympathy. As soon as a special traiii
could be arranged, tbe misinter started
for Geneva,accompanied by the deputy
prosecutor general, who took up the
case at once,his chief being on a vacation. Ho will hold a preliminary inquiry at Geneva at soon as possible,
and return tomorrow, in order to report
to the federal council. The federal
authorities had beeu informed of the
visit of the empress and they notified
the governors of the cantons that the
empress expected to visit, instructing
them to take special police measures
for her safety, if it appeared necessary.
They were not informed of her majesty's intention to visit Geneva, nor
were tbe local officials there aware of
her presence, as she was traveling incognito, hence the police are not
blamed, though the ^circumstances responsible for the lack of precautions
are widely regretted.
All Switzerland is profoundly stirred
with sorrow and indignation. The
papers of all the cities have printed
extra editions expressing horror over
the crime. Luecheui, tho anarchist
assassin, lived at Parma, Italy.
Vienna, Sept. 10 ���The news of the
assassination became known shortly
before 0 o'clock this afternoon. It
spread liko lightning. Tho streets
were suddenly filled with people, many
becoming impassable for vehicles. Extra editions wero issued by all tho
papers. Many Vienueso considered
the report incrcdablo until the semiofficial Wiener Abeudpost appoarod
confirming tbe statemeuts of tbo othor
papers. All tho papers accompanied
the announcement with warm tributes
to the dead empress. They woro
eagerly snatched from the bands of tho
sollers and read aloud to groups of
citizens. Au indescribable griof overpowers tho pooplo. The performances
at court, theatres, and the jubileo exhibition havo beon coucalled.
Victoria. Sept. 10.���Tho iron proporty of Mr. J. C. Anderson, at Sechart,
ou the west coast of Vancouver Island,
is reported to have been purchased by
a Chicago syndicate, whose representative returned from the wost coast

A great calamity befel the town of
Westminster yesterday and one which
will arouse the sympathies of tho
whole countrv. In a few hour.-; fire
swept away hundreds of homes and
Ncores of business houses, leaving their
owners probably penniless on tho
street. It is at such a time as this
that men feel their dependence one
upon the other and when assistance
freely and opportunely offered is doubly
valued. No appeal has come out from
the stricken town as yet, but it cannot bo tbat so great a disaster could
come without inflicting much Buffering, He that givetb quickly in aid ot
distress givoth twice. Should the
facts warrant it, and there is strong
belief that thoy will, ir would be a
praiseworthy act for his worship the
mayor and the members of tho council
to devise means of relief for those
who havo been so greviously smitten.
It may bo that the disaster is not so
complete as the despatches picture, but
the probability is that tho brief talc of
ruin which our special correspondent
tolls is in no sense an enlarged ono,
but, on the contrary, only half Ibe
truth. Euthcr particulars will ba in

throws no protection whatever. He
left that to inference and that was
more eloquent than if he had entered into explanation. Certainly when the protection which is given what ave known
as the professions comes into mind, the
man who labors with his hands lias
cause to complain of the disabilities
under which he lies in Ibis respect.
Lawyers, doctors, dentists, teachers,
have tlieir special incorporation which
confers ou them far-reaching powers
in protecting themselves from (he
operations of those who havo not
sought membership in their very exacting orders. No doctor, lawyer,
dentist, or teacher can eome to this
province aud engage in professional
work without a probationary term of
residence, a special examination and
the payment of a largo fee,which must
be regarded as a tax on permission to
practice. But tho workingman has no
such protection under the law. Competitors with Iiud in his handicraft
may crowd in from the four winds,
from the pauperized districts of continental Europe or from thc congested
lands of Asia, and he has no protection
whatever. Overplus of labor means reduced wages and this is what the native workingman and those of his race
havo to endure from the unrestricted
competition to which he is exposed.
There is something dreadfully wrong
somewhere and it is in no way surprising that wage-earners grow restless and aggressive.

Spain dates her commercial, and
cousenuoutly her political decline from

wrong,and his hesitancy was strengthened by the offer of a large sme of
money by the Jews for revocation of
tho inhuman edict. But Torquemada,
manager of the Holy Inijuisition, went
to the King and remarked that. Juda
bad betrayed the Saviour for money

To the August number of tlie Canadian Mining Review Mr. Vi. tt. Johnson, B. A.; B. A. Sc., Slocan City,
contributed a valuable article upon
"Cyanide experiments upon dry ores

the genoral reader the article would be

Mr. Johnson, who has given much
application to the subject, sets down
in the Review the results of a series of

four mouths, which results he considers eminently satisfactory. The mode of

various processes being fully explaiued
and the tabulated statements establish
fully the economy of this mode of extracting from their constituents the
precious metals. The article, which

Perhaps as fine a speech as any ovor
delivored on this subject in this province, was that of Hon. Joseph Martin
on labor and trades-unionism at
Nanaimo on Labor Day. There was
one particular part of his address deserving of more than passing notice.
With a touch of satire admirably applied ho dealt with the legal profession, or rather tho law society, as the
most oxactiug trades-union in existence, a union strengthened at every
point by legal enactments which could
not bo violated without severe penalties to the offender. Mr. Martin did
not contrast this stato of things with
unionism in tho mechauioal trades

The Reason Why There was a Demand
for Candles at the Hume.
Thoro was tho usual Saturday night
crowd at the Hume. Gentlemen wero
scattered in groups around the office
Some smoking meditatively, some conversing, some shaking Winnipeg at
the cigar stand, while others strolled
about at elegant ease. Charlie Prosser
sat behind the desk struggling with
tho thousand aud ono thiugs that
absorb the timo and attention of the
up-to-date hotel clerk. Walter, the
boss of tho bell-boys, lolled in his
chair, for a long night of ups and
downs was boforo him. All was serene
and everything was lovely. Thero
wero sounds from the bar of
the preparation of mellifluous
mixed drinks and corks popped
merrily at intervals. Upstairs iu tho
parlor a numbor of ladies and gentlemen woro deep in the niceties of that
uoble game, whist. Throughout tho
appartnients tho guests wero writing,
or reading or reclining after a satisfactory encounter with tho culinary
It was 9:15
Some contend that it was only 9:10,
hut careful enquiry establishes the
correctness of the first quotation. Without a word of warning, without tho
faintest intimation of what it was
about to do, the electric light wont out
throughout tho establishment. There
were sweet but subdued shrieks from
the ladies, deep and damning imprecation from the men down stairs. Suddenly and simultaneously fifty-three
call bells crashed iu the oflice. Thore
was a hoarse whisper of "firo. " Bror
Prosser slipped from his scat and
counselled all to bo calm. As a pro-
cautionary measure, the night boiug
dark, he closed the safe aud gavo the
combination a friendly turn.
"Gentlemen," said he, out of the.
darkness, "thore isn't the least cause
for alarm. You need uot go up to pull
out your trunks. Tho portor will do
that in duo time. This is not a groat
conflagration, it is merely a snuff-out
which has como an hour and a half before its time and broken the record.
Again I assure you, there is uo cause
for alarm. This is almost a nightly
occurence and has como with such frequency of late that it uow only causes
anger wlioro it once caused astonishment. "
Not since ho gavo up ton good, big,
faithfully earned $'s for a baseball dinner did Charlie, speak
so forcibly and a murmur of approval ran through the anxious throng.
And he proceeded to ignito the emergency lamps ho keeps under the
Meanwhile, the call bells continued
to clang, and Walter, confused by so
many peremptory summonses, hurried
in to say that there was a wild waill
for more light throughout tho houso.
Lamps, suggested souieouo. Impos-
ible. Candles suggested another. "Wo
haven't any," suid Walter. "Go got
them" cried Manager Hume, "get a
wholo (rase."
And so tho guests at tho Hume went
hack to the ono-caiidlo power light of
their forefathers,and they watched tho
wicks grow long,thoy saw tho "letters
iu the candlo" of wliich tho song
speaks, and thoy remarked the liquid
grease guttoring down tho candle sides
and glueing tho dim torches to tho
tables. And they woudored how tlieir
fathers put up with this thing so long.
Then tho conclusion was forced upon
thom that ovon this huniblo light was
surer aud more serviceable than an
electric light which hasn't the strength
to go after 10 o'clock at night. Aud so

evidence of the fact that Sir Herbert
Kitchoner expects serious and important events to grow out of this new
feature in thc African situation comes

newspaper correspondents from the expedition are not allowed to proceed
to Fashoda, but havo been ordered to
return immediately to Cairo.

Peeling in France-
Paris, Sept. 10.���Expectations were
not realized today. The ministerial
council was to have held a special sitting with the object of hearing the
war minister's account of the Dreyfus
case and the newly discovered delinquency in the staff officers. But General Surlinden, finding he had not yet
the grounds upon which to form a
Bound opinion, asked for an adjournment. Ho is a worthy colleague of the
conscientious Brisson, and was chosen
to investigate the Dreyfus affair, as he
has us minister, because he is not
biased and is weighted with a sense of
the responsibility involved in the matter. If against reopening the case, he
would have retired to leave the government a free hand. Judge of the
disappointment when news was received that the council had adjourned.
The Dreyfus affair is in a good channel. The minister of justice, has named
six accomplished, experienced, keen
jurists to examine the sivret letters
and everything connected with the
case. The reopening will entirely depend on this committee. None of the
six is a Jew except one of them, M,
Oropon, has written "Monothoism of
the Jewish people," a Standard work.
All six aro men of unblemished characters and in the habit of sifting evidence. The six set to work directly
after the war minister gives his opinion.
The country being now violently
anti-Semite and Drefyus being a Jew,
the government will have to act warily. The late Lieut.-Col. Henri's confession brought public opinion round
to a revision,but the hostility to Dreyfus has not abated. Tbe people feel
that a mystery of iniquity is involved
in the affair and they want to penetrate it. They are beginning to understand that the general staff is no better
than wheu it rendered tlie military
disasters of 1K70 inevitable. Tno resignation of (ieneral Boisdfevre, as
chief of the general staff is a standing
puzzle and it arouses suspicions (hat
only a public trial can quiet. The
peoplo ask was Dreyfus an accomplice
of Esterhazy? The darkest conjectures
are seemingly justified  by the circum-
