ABOOT TIE SPEECH
Salisbury's    Words    Have
Raised a Heat
ARE A GRAVE MENACE
It is Evident That the Continent, and Especially France, Dread the Alliance of
Britain and Amend-
Loudou, Nov. 11.���Lord Salisbury's
speech at the Lord Mayor's banquet,
especially his reference to America,
is making a stir throughout Europe.
The Paris ovening papers yesterday,
���Thursday, having a longer time for
reflection, bad a miicli less satisfied
tone than the utterances of the morning press in the French capital, whilo
the whole continent reflects tbe feeling that the speech conveys a gravo
menace of   the  future.
La Liberie, of Paris says: "It is a
qnestiou of an An,'lii-Aiiioriouu agreement respoctingt be Philippines directed   against Germany.
Tho Journal Desbals regards the
speech as"an invitation to America to
make au alliance against Kurope," but
doubts whether Americans will willingly play the roll of- train bearers to
English politicians."
The London morning papers revert
to the subject and again take occasion
to wish well the Americans colonial
mission.
The Times says editorially: "No
doubt the idea of La Liberte is grotesque, yet it shows a truer appreciation
of the spirit of Lord Salisbury's remarks than the singular interpretation
put upon tbem by the correspondent,
Heury Norman, wbo finds in them
tbe preposterous implication that the.
English attitude during tbo war was
due to tho notion that our interests
would bn furthered hy the United
States being plunged into war. Lord
Salisbury clearly did uot refer to tho
late war.
He paid the United States the compliment of holding that tlieir entry into
old world polities is an event of great
importance. His further remarks obviously meant that America and England would stand together in a friendship based upon community of aims,
sentiments and iuterests. It needs a
strongly perverted iugonuity to see a
slight* to America in a view of Ihis
kind, enunciated by the statesman who
directed 1 Jiglish policy throughout tho
Hispauo-American war aud the Anglo-
American reapprochmcut it produced.
German critics evidently dislike the
prospect Lord Salisbury suggested."
LONDON HAPPENINGS.
the appeal court practically admitted
that tbe magistrate's decision wal
wrong iu view of the present state of
the licensing law, but the court dismissed the appeal on a technical
point. The lord chief justice, Baron
Kussell of Kilowen, however, reoom-
niended parliament to pass a bill legal*
izing its position.
The great South Wales colliery
strike is no sooner aver than another
is threatened owing to ihe miners,
in defiance .of their agreement with
tbe employers,, deciding by a big majority to retain every Monday as a holiday. Trouble is expeoted next Monday, when absentees will be prosecuted.
The London county council last
week decided by au overwhelming majority in favor of the compulsory purchase of all the London water companies, involving many millions of rounds
sterling. Such a bill, however, will
meet with desperate opposition in parliament where the vested interests are
exceptionally strong.
Tbe wedding of the Earl of Stafford
to Mrs. Colgate will probably occur in
America. The Earl is planning to sail
soon, and has consulted his friends regarding booking on a steamship nnder
au assumed name in order to escape
attention of the American reporters,
which he dreads. Both parties are said
to desire the ceremony to be as unostentatious as possible.
CANADIAN   BRIEFS.
News Gathered From All Farts ofthe Dominion and Giving in Condensed
Form an Epitome of Events-
Interesting. Events   o    the Week   iu
the Great Metropolis.
Lord Kitchener was tin guest of
Queon Victoria at Balmoral Castle dur-
iug tbo early part of the past week,
and presoiited her Majesty with some
interesting relics of the battle of Omdurman. On Thursday the geueral
went through the quaint ceremony of
being admitted to the freedom of the
Fishmongers' Company, aud it was as
a citizen uud fishmonger that he received the freedom of the city of London on Friday.
The sword of honor preseuted to
Gen. Kitchener at the Guildhall is a
magnificent specimen oi the jeweller's
ifrt. The hilt is of solid gold, surmounted with the figure of tho British
Lion, aud bears the figures of Britannia and justice, and the monograms of
the general in diamonds, rubies and
sapphires, and British and Egyptian
flags enameled   in their propor colors.
The scabbard is finely ornamented
and inscribed with the names of the
Sirdar's victories. The blade is of the
lines!* steel, Damascened near the hilt
with gold.
The temperance party won a moral
victory last week in attackiug the sale
of intoxicants within the houses of
parliament, whioh is in the anomalous
position of breaking the laws mado by
Its members. The action was au ap-;
peal from the decision of a magistrate |
who held thut tho licensing aet did
not apply to houses of parliament, and
Tho building committee of tho new
opera hull at New Westminster, which
will be commenced at once, expect to
hive tho ball finished in time to enable
them to give an opening concert on
Christmas eve with special orchestral
attractions.
There is a report, going the rounds of
the eastern press to the effect that D.
McNichol, general truffle manager of
the C. P. H, estimates that 50,000
people have gone to the Klondike tbis
year, and that 20,000 of them will return to their homes without having
reached the gold fields. Each man
carried with him uu outfit costing several hundred dollars and his travelling
expenses were not less than $250 or
|300, making a total for eaoh of not
less tban $600, and a grand total of
$80,000,000.
James McMonies, writing from Omaha under date of the lst inst., says:
The Truus-Mississipi exposition closed
last evening. Over 61,000 entered
tho turnstiles to see the wind-up nf
the exposition of tbe century, as in
many respects it surpussed any hitherto held ou this continent, it being a
record breaker financially, tt will
please yonr patrons to hear that three
gold medals for the best cereals have
been awarded to Canada, viz., Manitoba, Assiniboia and Alberta. The Canadian oourt exhibit took the silver
medal for general exhibits. - From
some oversight no vegetables from tbo
north or northwest were on hand ; had
some of their ^famous potatoes, cabbages, etc., been sent the gold medal
would certainly have been awarded
to tbe Canadian court. In sheep Canada took the lead and was away no in
the hog lino. The British and Ciiua-
iliau-Aiiioriean club give a grand banquet next Thursday evening at the Her
Grand hotel to the Canadian exposi-
itou representatives. Ex-Canadians
are proud of tbem and the Canadian
exhibits. It will redound to Canada's
credit as a factor in settling up Manitoba and the North West Territories
as a wiser saying than Horace Greeley's is. "Go north, young aud old
men."
It is stated that the minister of
mines has written to Bossland for a
copy of the verdiot in the coroner's

two miners who lost their lives by tbe

BONDS SOLD   AT PAR.
THE PARTY STEONG
IN
The Republican Victory was
Most Decisive.
SAFE FOR EIGHT YEARS
Ths Old Party Has Now a Working Majority in the Senate and Thus Practically Controls Congress.
Washington, Nov. 10.���Chairman
Babcock, of the republican congressional committee, iu his latest estimate of tbe standing of the parties in
the house of representatives, states
that a republican majority of at least
twenty is now assured. Mr. Babcock says that the puhlie hardly realizes the full extent of tbe republican
victory ou. Tuesday Even more important, be said, than tbe fact that
the next house will be republican is
the sweeping change in the senate,
where the fruits of Tuesday's election
will give the republicans  18 majority.
'That majority cannot possibly Le
overcome for eight years," said Mr.
Babcock, "aud for ut least that period
the business interests of the country
nre safo. Bepublican counsels must
prevail for that length of time and
even if the next house and the next
president should be for silver, the republican senate would block their
path.
" Besides, the majority in the senate
will give ns a clean working majority
there for the enactment nf our policies
without* the embarrassment that comes
from narrow and unstable majorities.
There need be no deals with the
kickers. We will We a repnblioan
majority sufficient to work with
freely. What we do can be done with
the knowledge that our legislation will
have umpl�� time to vindioate itself before a hostile senate oan be elected to
upset it"
TO WELCOME MINTO.
The Cabinet Ministers  and   Supreme
Court Judgo to go to Quebeo.
Ottawa, Nov. 10.���In addition to all
the cabinet ministers who can possibly
be present at the reception and installation of the new Governor General on
Saturday, it will be tended by the
judges of the supreme court who will
go to Quebec, accompanied by their
wives. Hon. Messrs. Blair and Joly
left this morning for the Sonlanges
canal works and will continue their
journey to Quebec. At Quebec a speo-
ial official train composed of gubernatorial and ministerial cars will be
made up and will convey the ministers
and judges to Ottawa.
PKOTECTOB OF THE CATHOLICS
IS
The Pope Doos Not Becognizo Emperor William's  Claims.
Londou, Nov. 10.���The Central
News Rome despatch eays tho Pope
bas telegraphed to the czar confirming
the right of Franco as the protector of
the Catholics iu tbe esat. His, holiness adds, however, that he would
very much regret to be responsible
for any painful events which might
compromise that peace of which tho
czar is the principal exponent.
MISCARRIAGE OF JUSTIOE.
Montreal, Nov. 10.���There has been
a strange miscarriage of justico, if tbe
story that Honry Pigeon tells is truo.
Ho was arrested yesterday on a chargo
of robbiug n church at St. Liu lust
August. He admitted his guilt, but
told the detoctives that two men were
now in penitonstiary serving two year
terms for this offence of his. He
could not remember their names, but
thought that ono was Germain. Germain, be said, was not guilty and had
uever broken into a church in his life.
ni
Reciprocity Said to Be Under Discussion.
NO NEWS IS GIVEN OUT
Lord Hersoholl, Sir Biohard Oortwright,
M'. Kasson and Mr. Dingley Have
a Conference.
CHAUVINISTS HOWL  FOR  WAR.
Loudon, Nov. 10.���A despntch from
Puris to the Central News says that a
great reaction bas set in among politicians against the cast off French colonizing enterprise whicli will possibly result in the Nile question settliug
itself. The real danger is in the
Chauvinist press, which continues to
howl for war.
FRASER  RIVER   HATCHERY.
Vancouver, Nov. 10.��� About 5,-
600,000 Salmon eggs have beon collected and placed in the Fraser river
hatohery. Fisheries Inspector McNab
bas just retnrned from Harrison rivor,
where he has been collecting salmon
ova.
GIFTS FOR THE CZAR.
The oity oounoil of; Grand Forks; Moscow, Nov. 10.���The Sultan's
after negotiating lor several weeks extraordinary ambubS.idor, Turkhan
with eastern parties has sold the issue Pasha, haas gone to Levidia, bearing
of $15,000 debentures to Richard Arm- gifts and a letter from the Sultun to
strong of Rossland nt par. Emperor Nicholas.
Washington, Nov. 10.���The commission did not hold an afternoon session,
but a committee consisting of Lord
Herschell and Sir Richard Cartwright
and Messrs. Dingley and Kasson was in
session. Owing to Mr. Kasson's official position sb reciprocity commissioner and the prominence of Mr.
Dingley iu tariff affairs, it was inferred tbnt their committee was work*
iug ou the question of reciprocity. Sir
Richard Cartwright has long been
identified with the Canadian govern
nieut for reciprocity. The presence of
Lord Herschell would insure attention
to BritiBh interests in case of a reciprocity discussion one of the main factors thus far developed by the reciproc
ity discussion being as to the differential in favor of Great Britain in the
present Canadian tariff. No announcement was made as to the committee.
Tbe commission will hold sessions
daily at 11 a. m., at which tbe work
advanced to completion by the com
mittens will be passed npon. Most of
the time will bo given to committee
work us the topics are divided with a
view to having all tbe preliminary
work completed by oommittees before
the commission takes np tbe subjects,
Following the course adopted at Quo
bee, all information is to be given out
through the two chairmen, Lord Her
scbell aud Senator Fairbanks, the main
purpose being to observe reticence until tbe commission completes its labors.
One of tbe commissioners stated today that until all the subjects had
been disposed of, each one remained
open. In this view of the- case there
will be no final decision on any of the
topics under consideration until a final
decision is reached on all of tbem.
The courtesies showered upon the
commissioners in Quebec are to be reciprocated here by many social amenities. President McKinley will entertain the commissioners at dinner at
the White House and the secretary of
state will give a reception in their
honor.

Meeting  at Buffalo.
Buffalo, Nov. 10.���A conference of
representatives of the western passenger association und D.McNicoll,passenger truffle manager of the Canadian
Pacific railway was held in the iro-
auois hotel this morning. Chairman
Caldwell, of the Western Passenger as
sociation, presided and the session
lasted about ono hour. Several questions and differences arising from the
recent restoration of passenger rates,
wore discussed, bnt no definite action
was takon. However, the results attained from the discussion were mutually agreeable. This afternoon members of tho Western Passenger association and Trunk Line association met
Mr. McNicoll und discussed certain
technicalities in regard to the immigrant bureau. The Canadian Pacific
has recently been granted membership
in this bureau and naturally it desires
to secure a reasonable portion of tho
tralllc. Those present at tho conference decliued to talk regarding what
hud been done. On member, however,
stuted that everything was going on
satisfactory and that an agreement on
all points under discussion would
undoubtedly be reached.
DISAPPOINTED   ROBBERS.
Montreal, Nov. 10.���The northern

was broken into early yesterday morn-
iug. The robbers effectod an entrance

PROOFS   OF ORIGIN.
Toronto.Nov. 10.���An Evening Te'.o-
gram cable from Loudon says; Ship-
dors of goods to Cauada for which pro-!
fernntial treament is asked, aro discussing tbe requirements of tho customs department of the Dominion as
to the proofB of origin. Exporters consider that the pasting of certificates
of origin on the back of tbe invoice
Bhftuld bo regarded as complying witb
the cUBtoms regulation requiring the
certificate to ue printed or written on
I the back of the invoice.
London, Nov. 10.���Major General
Wesley Merritt, the commander of the
American military forces iu the Philippines, who is uow in tbis city, ln
an interview on Ihe result of the elections in tbe United States is quoted as
saying: "I am very glad the president's policy seems to have beeu endorsed. Although I am somewhat of
a democrat, I think it highly desirable
that there should 1 e a congress tbat
will ratify aud curry into effect the result of the war and the peace treaty."
Referring to the Marquis of Salisbury's Guildhall speech, General
Merritt said: "Most Americans, I
believe, agree, nnd our English cousins
insist, that wo should keep the Philippine islands. I don't know whether
the government is cooling towards us,
but all the ollieials I have met here,
some of them beiug in very high
places, seemed cnthusisatic over tbo
friendship between the two countries.
All tbe Englishmen I met in the
east, including governors, consuls,
naval men, military men and business
mon, tbo latter of all nationalities,
were most anxious that the United
States should retain the Philippine is-
li"ids. We have a fine trade ..Hjtis
North China wbicb could be strengthened by coaling stations and headquarters in the east without interfering with Birtish interests. I do not
think it true, as Ibo Russian papers
say, that tbe Pacific will become an
American lake, but oue thing is certain about, the Philippine islands, we
must either take thom all or drop tbem
altogether."

THE TIME TO AOT.
Jn the last issue of the Provinuiul
Gazette was a notice calling v!'"'! I1"1'
sous iu different parts uf ihe coliiitnr
to inform ihe department ol lanus
nad works of such public works us aie
desirable in their neighborhood, that
they may be taken into consideration
and atteuded to, should they be deemed
necessary. The authorities of Nelson
should lose no time in drawiug the
attention of the departmeut to Nelson's
needs in this particular aud to use
sach influence as they may possess to
have their recommendations carried
iqto effect. The court house and jail
OTe in need of many alterations to fit
tljem for the purpose for which they
wero intended. The courthouse should
be entirely reoonstraoted to render it
safe as the repository of the valuable
deeds and documents kept there and
serviceable as a place in which to
h(>ld court, iu all requirements for
which it fulls nhoit in its present condition. It is understood that the former government 83t aside $5000 for this
purpose, but the grant fell with the
ministry and nothing has been done
since. Five thousand dollars wonld be
altogether inadequate to oover the
improvements that are necessary, Involving aB they   would   tho   complete   services rendered
remodelling of the interior of the
building aud the addition *t fire proof
compartments. Indeed, the people of
Nelson would be justifitd in asking
tlje government to provide an entirely
upw building of stone which would
serve for all time as a court house.
The present structure is wooden and, as
we have before pointed out, owing to
its perishable character, repairs and
alterations done upou ic will only bc
temporary, while a stone building
could he so substantially constructed
that the cost of maiutainence year by
year would be very small. The provincial government derives a very
largH revoiiuo from this part of tho
country yearly nud tho cost of suoh a
building would bo comparatively u
���ery small chargo against it.
His Honor Judgo Form has been in
communicntion with the government
upou this subject and ns the government, through the notice referred to,
invites suggestions, an opportunity is
presented to him to renew his requests.
law. As a matter of fact, Mr. Elliott
noting for the city under ipstruotious
trom the mayor, did all the legal
vork conneoted with the by-law and
1vepared tbe case for tbe defendant
i ity rn the action brought to quash the
by-law. The bill for this amounted to
s veral hundred dollars. The mayor
' * jected to the amount and instead of
...-Icing for a tuxiug of the bill, which
i�� he proper mode of procedure in
- u.i cases, he rejected the bill aud the
i ity solicitor bad no other  course than
resign. '.'"   '
Now let ns look at the other side.
The appeal case came on at Victoria
and tbe city had counsel there to oppose the motion of plaintiff. All the
attorney work, that is, all the work ne-
cessnrv to complete the case of tbe
city in opposing the appeal, had been
done by the city solicitor here, and all
the Victoria counsel had to do was to
step iuto court aud be ready when tbe
ease came on. Tbe barristers engaged
by the citv. or rather by the mayor,
were Messrs. Tupper, Peters & Potts
nud they made but one motion in
court. This single appearance, comprising practically all the . work
Messrs. Tupperi Peters & Potts did in
tbe case, cost the city of Nelsou
t*ll��,abont 1*40 of which will be set off.
When this account came before the
counoil the mayor ordered it to be paid
aud not an alderman at the board had
a word to say by wny of protest. The
least they could have doue was to
point out that this bill of Tupper, Peters & Potts was far in excess of Mr.
Elliot's bill of costs, considering tho
and   tbat   if   objec-
It   is  generally   thought   that   Mr.
Robert Thompson, the official referred
in exercising his right us a British
to,
subject to vote according   to   his  own
opinion, thereby incurred   the enmity
of  ceitmn paltry poliiciaus of opposite
views.
This view ot the matter may be
wrong, but at any rate the citizens
here are entitled to Know tho cause,
if any for Mr. Thompson's removal If
no cause exists,except the oue inferred,
then indeed we hsve secured a retrograde government which is openly
violating the rights of a citizen and
also the first principle essential to tho
maiutainence of a good  civil  service.

KINGSTON   RESIDENT DEAD.
Kinsgton, Ont., Nov. 10.���William
Cairns, aged 44, died yesterday. One
of his sons is with the United States
troops at Manila.
REISTERER & CO.,
A CURIOUS CASE.
As showing the appreciation in
which somo officials hold the positions
they ocenpy nudjtho idea I hat they have
of the duties required of them, the following from the Victoria Times and
vouched for by tbnt able newspaper,
in interesting:
Early last spring Mr. J. Preston
Ford, a supporter of the Turner administration and a late arrival in the
se dement, was appointed to the position of assistant mining rooordcr at
Cudwaliader crock. No uoouer was he
established, says our informant, than
he hastened buck to Lillooet to get
hiurried, leaving a Mr. Collis in
charge of tho office. Numerous uppli-
eatious lo record were, of oourse,
made, the fee of ta.BO being in onch
case taken by Jlr. Cull is hut the affidavits worn uot sworn to as required
ly the act. Upon the return of Mr.
lord to his duty these affidavits wore
duly forwarded to Mr. Phair for entry
in Ihe record books of his office. But
Mr. Phuir refused to enter them, ou
tho ground that thev had not beeu
properly attested. The time allowed
for record having expired, aud none
of .the applicants having put in an ap-
pourauco, not knowing, of courso,
there was anything wrong, and not
having been notified to that effect, it
is lo bo presumed that the applicants
iu all those cusos will lose their
claims.
This would be fanny had it not a
serious sido. Mr. J. Preston Ford
may be the moans of losing valuable
chums to miners, bnt the fact stands
boldly out tba1; Mr. .'. Preston Ford
dtd not lose-Ills girl. Wo have always
noticed that when thero is a girl
the ease   all   other  considerations
tion could be raised to lhe account of
the latter, there was far greater reason
for objecting to Ihe very high charge
of Tupper. Peters & Potts for oue single motion.
But* Tupper, Peters & Potts' while
ostensibly tho solicitors at Victoria in
this matt.or for the city, were in
reality solicitors for the mayor, who is
tbe principal owner of tho electric concern which he is trying to unload on
the city nt an exhorhitunt price aud us
the mayor had in view the retaining
of the firm at tho expenses of tho citizens to fight his appeal against Justice Walkem's decision, he did not object to their first bill, which was
large, nor will he fight ngninst their
subsequent bills, which will undoubtedly be larger. Indeed the mayor is
extremely liberal iu spendiug the
city'8 mouey in efforts to further the
unloading of his property on the citizens but how long they will suffor this
to continue remains to be seen.
COMMUNICATIONS.
DIFFERS   WITH   MR. KERR.
To the Editor of The Miner,
Sir:���I notice by your issue of the
8th a letter from R. B. Kerr of New
Deuver in whicli he tries to excuse
his statements re alleged labor famine
in the Slocan. He would leave the
impression that tho labor market is
not overcrowded. Allow me to stnte
right here, there is not und never bus
beou a laLor famine in tbo district. It
is estimatfd that thero aro nearly iOO
miners in Sandon alone who aro unemployed, while tho otber towns can
proportionately supplement this number. As to wood cutters, thoy ure
offered the same prico por cord us two
years ago, but us timber bas grown
source fond inaccessible it is almost
impossible to make more thnn hoard ut
this work. Then Mr. Kerr laments
tho scarcity of pluslorors, because ill
truth ho bus ono small building that has
been a little delayed. The plasterer mny
have his work crowding him just now,
but long before he desires it, ho will
no doubt, have weeks of enforced idleness. Mr. Kerr must remember thnt
men who work for their living ennnot
earn their money with such dispatch
as lawyers.
In reforenco to his excuse of his
not being aware that his statement iu
Nelson wns for the press, it muy be
inferred thut he attacks hia own veracity. Why a statement to an individual should be iess truthful than oue
to the public is difflcnlt to conceive.
Youra truly, A MINER.

PRISONER'S DOCK
A
Proper   Reprimand   By
Judge Wurtele-
IN A MONTREAL COURT
He is ABksd to .Relieve a Prisoner From
Sitting in the Dock and He Makes
Some Sensible Rom irks
Montreal, Nov. 10.���Some interesting remarks were mndo by Judge
Wnrtele yesterday regarding the position of any one placed in thc dock,
Mr. Lee Harris, wbo is charged with
theft, the alleged offense consisting in
converting to bis own use tbo snm of
$500 entrusted to him for specific purposes. Counsel Crnnksltaw asked that
Harris be permitted to occupy n soirt
on the floor of tbe court room instead
of in the dock, as it was unnecessary
to subject him to such nn indignity.
The alleged offence was ouo whioh
before coming into operation of the
present code would hnve exposed him
to civil porceedings oniy. The judge
could see no rennet! why Harris eould
not remain in the dock. The dock
was for prisoners the bench for the
judge, tlie witness box for the witnesses and the jury box for tbe jury.
Surely it was a question of convenience nnd no disgrace iu being in the
dock. Tho disgrace camo when the
charge was proven. The English courts
required all prisoners, however illustrious, lo occupy the dock. There
wns no reason why Harris should not
be placed there jnst us if he was
merely accused of sleitliug only five or
ten dollars. Tbe fact of his being accused of having stolen $500 could not
be urged in favor of granting him any
special privileges. The jury was im-
pnunelled and the case proceeded.
