While agreeing with the principle

with hetween $125,000 and $150,000 in
Klondike gold dust and paper. There
were about 80 miners, including William Munsie and Mr. Bloomingdale,
of this city, both of whom are just

Admiral Sampson was present. Senor
Giranta, secretary of the Spanish commission presented the American commission an official note setting the
time when'the next detachments of
Spanish troops will leave the island.
It. is reported here that many of the
officers of General Gomez's staff havo

Washington, Oct. 17.���Information
has reached the war department that a
high offloer of the Spanish army very
recently made the statement that had
the Spaniards beeu aware of the condition of the American army, its inability to withstand the hardships of a
campaign, its lack of medical and
other supplies and general inefficiency,
as told in the American papers, the
Spaniards would not have given up,
but would have continued fighting for
a'long time to come, fully believing
that they would have been able to
prevent the capture of Cuba by the
American army. This statement is
known to have beon made to tho Americau officers now in Cuba, and causes
some uneasiness in official circles, as
it may menu that the Spaniards are
uot ready to yield the island under the
terms of the protocol.
It is believed by officials in Washington that had it not been for the
outcry regarding tho army and the
conduct, of the war that there never
would have been any question raised
by the Spanish peaco commissioners
regarding the Cuban debt. It is pointed
out that under the protocol the sole
question left for the commissioners
was the settlement of the Philippines];
and that there was nothing about the
Cuban debt or any other Cuban question say those who are in a position to
know. It is asserted that the Madrid
government was aware when it asked
for peace and when negotiations were
opened that it was useless to ask that
the Cuban debt be taken into consideration by any commission and that it
is only siuco the reports of the bad
condition of the United States army
bad reached Madrid that the question
had beon raised.
Another matter that caused grave
consideration in tho war departmennt
is tho temper of the Spaniards in
Cuba, and the fear that tho impression which now prevails there may
lead them to regard the American
troops of not much account and act
accordingly after the occupancy by the
United States. The matter has been
discussed in the war department and
it is probable that when the troops are
sent to Cuba they will be a force of
such size and character as to give the
islanders a different impression of
United States soldiers than they now
entertain. "The impression among
the Spaniards in Cuba," said an officer
in a position to know what is going
on, is that the American soldiers are
weak and puny, incapable of withstanding hardships and whom it will
be an easy matter} to vanquish. This
feeling may make it difficult for the
Americans at first. This impression
is due to the charges that have been
made against the war department
with such virulence and insistance
during the past few months."
Judgment   Has   Boeu    Rendered��� An
Outlino of th e Case.
Washington, Oct. 17.���The decision
of the arbitrators iu the McCord case
has beeu rendered, but its purport is not
yet known to tho state department.
The arbitrator was Sir Henry Strong,
chief justico of Canada. He telegraphed the state depatmeut that he
had rendered his decision on Saturday

McCord was an American civil engineer living in Peru, whose person

Secretary Oluey to secure au undertaking oh the part of Peru to submit

driven by a strong wind. Wires are
down in all directions and railway
traffic is delayed. Snow followed after
24 hours of steady rain. Tho sidewalks aro covered with three inches of

in the temporature and the suddenness
of the storm, coining as it has upon

Chicago, Oct. 17.���During the day
rain set in and continued at intervals.
The bicycle parade sheduled for tonight was ordered postponed until
Thursday night becauso of the inclement-weather. In mud bespotted carriages, drawn by dripping horses, the
presidential party, escorted by a party
of distinguished citizens, arrived at
tho residence of the president, W. R.

this afternoon. The pouring rain, or
the ankle deep mud, had no terrors or

crowds about the residence and
cheered the president as his carriage
came in sight and long after he had
entered President Harper's house.

that a sewer bo laid from Stanley
street to Kootenay, provided the

London, Oct. 17.���Mrs. Nancy
Guilford, tho Bridgeport, Conn., midwife, was again brought up iu the
Bow street police court today upon extradition proceedings, and further remanded.
Paris, Oct. 17.���Tho peace commission wili meet again Wednesday next.
During today's session the commissioners were occupied with the. Spanish presentation of Tuesday last, aud
tho American answer submitted on
Friday, relating to Cuba and the debt
of that island. Tho examination of
the American views on the subject
was not concluded today but will be
concluded at the next joint meeting
following which the Spaniards will
doubtless roply in writing, the conclusion ot tho subjects soon followiug.
The interchanges regarding Cuba are
now so far advanced that the Spaniards will not fail to understand the
United States determination not to assume part of the so called Cuban debt
of $400,000,000. It should not, however,
be understood that the Americans during tho course of the controversy
have been unmindful of certain local
burdens liko tbo municipal obligations of the Cuban cities, railroads and
kindred properties, local and permanent, lt should not bo forgotten, howover, that the American attitude in
Cuba is held not to bo that of an acquiring power, either of territory or
its real or constructive obligations.
The opposing Spaniards keenly contend that sovereignly involves burdens
as well as blessings and that both
should pass togothor from Spaiu.
Closely following this contention, the
Spaniards are pressing for a construction of tho word "relinquish"
in the Cuban articles of tbo protocol.
"We must consent" they urge, "to
relinquish sovereignty over Cuba,
but to whom ? We have not agreed to
relinquish it to the Cubans, we relinquish it to tho United Statos. " Thus
crystalizing tlieir reasoning, the Spaniards bind debt and sovereignty together and urge that tho relinquishment must bo to tbo United States.
While this contention is keenly aud
vigorously supported, it has uot shaken
tho position of the Americans, who
cut the thread of Spanish diplomacy
in the middle of tho word "relinquish," by practically assuring the
Spaniards that they need not cherish
anxiety as to whom to relinquish but
to conform to the fourth article of the
protocol, which pledges Spain, "that
Cuba, Porto Rico aud other Spanish
islands of the West Indies, shall be
immediately evacuated.
Briefly tbo American response to
tho Spanish diplomacy as to construction and definition was. that tho
words "relinquish" and "evacuate"
are interchangeable and have the same
meaning. Thus, threo sessions wero
given up to patiently meeting Spain's
view and contentions touching the
protocol to relinquish their sovereignty
and title to Cuba and there is a possibility of two sessions moro.

By the Claytou-Buhver treaty between the United States and Great
Britain both nations aro enjoined
from having an armed fleet upon the
great lakes. The first, mentioned government wishes to havo the treaty
modified so that it can put armed vessels on inland waters as part of its
naval equipment. The reason given
is tbat the United States wishes to
encourage ship-building on the inland
waters. This is not a good reason and
Canada must view with concern the
placing|of armed vessels on the lakes
where there is uo need whatever for
them. No foreign loo conld ever penetrate Canada to the lakes and through
thom invade or even menace the
United States, and tho attitude of
Canada towards her neighbor is not
such as to warrant the presence of a
lake fleet, for such a fleet must beget
a similar one on Canada's part, which
would necessitate a needless expenditure of money.
Again, the fortifications at Esquimalt ou Vancouver island can be understood as being a provision against a
descent on that coast of a foreign fleet,
but tho necessity for fortifying Montreal is not readily seen. With Quebec
furnished with modern artillery it
would bo impossible for a hostile vessel to pass up the St. Lawrence to
assail Montreal, or auy other point on
the river or lakes. Perhaps these in
land fortifications were planned merely
to gratify local militarism and to
throw a little money into tho country
to show that Canada has not been entirely overlooked in the expenditure
for purposes of defence. But such
works are not needed and tho expenditure is ill-advised. There will never
be war between tbis country and the
United States, the only misfortune
which could render the U. S. inland
fleet and Canada's inland fortifications useful, aud these warlike preparations servo only to create distrust
and apprehension for which there
aro no grounds whatover.
However Hou. Mr. Turner's friends
may view the statements of that gentleman beforo the commission appointed
to enquire into certain transactions in
connection with the contructiou of
the parliament buildings at Victoria,
they are not satisfactory as au explanation to the public. Mr. Turner can
be shown to have been in error iu
many of bis answers and tho whole
examination does uot leave him in a
favorable light in tho eyes of tho people. Tho News-Advortiscr of Vancouver accuses the lato premier of dolit-
orato falsehood in his examination
and it deals the prostrate foe sundry
knocks which aro quite unnecessary
considering that the ox-premier hasjost
everything and is out of public affairs
in this province for good. It was
gonerally folt that his government
could not last becauso it was responsible for acts which could not bo do-
fended. Investigation bbs shown tbat
tho ways of Mr. Turner's government wero vory lax, to uso a mild
term, but his rule is past and whilo
indignation may rise that such a stato
of things was allowed to continue so
long, furthor denunciation of tho men
responsible serves no purpose but to
please the vindictive. The culprits
are answerable only to public opinion
aud tho public, having placod them
where they can do no further harm,
will let things go tlieir way, confident
that their successors as far as in their
power, will repair the defects of the
past and give this province government
which will put to shame those who attempted to fasten Turnerism permanently upon it.
Elsewhere will be found tho unexpected and surprising announcement
that Mr. E. C. Senkler, of the legal
firm of Bowes & Senkler, has been j
appointed gold commissioner of the ;
Yukon in the place of Mr. Gordon
Hunter, who has resigned.
We say surprising not because Mr.
Senkler is likely to be anything but an
ornament tb his now position, but because his name has never been mentioned iu that connection, nor was he
known to have any ambitions towards
tho gold commissionership. In fact,
it is generally stated that the appointment came as a surprise to Mr. Senkler himself.
While practicing law here Mr.
Senkler showed that he was possessed
of ability, integrity and many other
sterling qualities, being deservedly
and universally popular. Now that
ho has | gone, The Miner joins with
his numerous friends in offering Mr.
Senkler its heartiest congratulations,
and good wishes for that success
which will surely attend him in tho
wider sphere of action on wliich he has
Our despatches this morning say that
Lord Charles Beresford has arrived iu
Pekin. He was sent out, not as the
telegram says by the government, but*
by tho London chamber of commerce,
probably tho most influential body in
the world. With an able and outspoken Imperialist like Lord Charles
Beresford in China, with Lord Salisbury's firm attitude with regard to
Fashoda, and with the cordial support
of the English liberals at home it
seems probable that tho British gov -
eminent is about to take a firm siand
such as will astonish the world iu

however, proved satisfactory and New
Westminster now rests contented over
a work well done.
It is odd to think that French naval
vessels visit the shores of Newfoundland, a British possession, land crews
and knock the people about who are
engage in the lobster fisheries. The
French do this under the treaty which
gives them shore rights on certain
parts of the coast. Recently they put a
stop to miuiug operations on the
coast. It is not surprising that the
British subjects of Newfoundland
ask, "Under which flag?"

He won a fight in Rossland last
December, and moro recently vanquished the champion of tho North
West Territories at Dawson City.
Despite the odds against him thero
were many who fanoied Ooolgardie's
chances, remembering the cleverness
and dash shown in previous contests.
Comparatively little money changed
hands over the result, for, while there
was plenty of money to say that Smith
would last the 10 rounds, thero were
not many who backed him right out
for any amount of money.
Tho'fight was not a very exciting
one, as Smith, realizing in tho first
round that he could not. win, adopted
falling tactics from the outset. He
fell several times in each round, taking his full nine seconds on each occasion. He clinched whenever an
opportunity showed itself, and generaly availed himself to the utmost of
all the resources of ring generalship.
Notwithstanding all his efforts, howover, Jlia was badly punished, and,
his friends say, broke a rib towards
the end of tho fight, but he was still
on his feet when tho gong sounded at
the end of the lOlh round, so thc
contest was declared a draw.
The hall was packed   to   its   utmost
capacity, and though the mill was disappointing in a souse,   it   was  agreed
on all sides that the contest was a gen
uiue ono.
