THE GERMAN PRESS
Comments on the Philippine
Question.
THE COURT IS FRIENDLY
And ls More Than Ever Desirous of Fostering tha Good Will of the
United States-
Berlin, Nov. 36���The Germnn press
this week has busied itself ti great
deal abont the Philippine qnestiou
and the pence negotiations at Paris.
Nearly all the oomment hns been uncomplimentary to the United States,
which is charged with excessive greed
and political indecency in formulating
new demands. President MoEinley
is also aoonsed of "inconsistency"
nnd "lack of bnokbone" in not withstanding the "increasing demands of
the imperial party. "
A number of German newspapers
have now adopted a strain indicating
a desire to obtain a portion of the
Spanish-Asiatic possessions for Germany. The Ereuz Zeitnng, which
has much more influence at oourt and
in army oircles says: "Germany is
materially interested in the outcome of
the peace negotiations, more particularly, with respect to the Sulu archipelago, where Germany and Great
Britain possess the kind of commercial priviliges granted to them by Spain
in 1877 and in which Hamburg aud
Bremen are largely interested. American annexation of this group, besides
being a matter of strategic importance,
would mean, in view of America's
prohibition tariff policy, the destruction of both the German and the British trader there. In short, on understanding with Great Britain or joiut
action and intervention is absolutely
indespensable. The theory of "an
American sea" cannot be accepted hy
any of the European nations. Mr.
Kasson, therefore, has been indulging
in day dreams.
The Deutsche Zeitung, organ of llie
Pan-German party, says: It is particularly painful that with the Carolines
to which Will possibly be added the
rest of the islands, a piece of Spanish
goods ia disposed of to which we hi d
a historical preemption claim. The
Deutsche Zeitnng concludes with a
suggestion to the government to seize
the occasion to acquire a portion nf
the Carolines, or. at least, to secure
compensation in Samoa and also obtain a guarantee for the future of Germany's commercial interest in the
Philippines and the Sulu arohipelngn.
"Guarantees" it says, spitefully,
"which will hold water even against
Amerioan interpretations."
In spite of these newspaper comments the correspondent of ine Associated Press is informed on good authority that Germany still does not
contemplate interference, active or
otherwise, with the American claims,
at least, as long as no concerted notion is proposed or carried out jointly
by the European powers. This statement tallies with the assurances givjyi
by the foreign office here. So far as
the United States emlassy is concerned no proposition of any kind
has beeu made by the German government and before the United Statos ambassador, Mr. And ew White, left Berlin on his two n ��� nth'a leave of absence, lie came to th < concision that
Germany, under no circmstiincea, will
undertake important steps dining his
absence. In fact, the Geriiian prigs
utterances, urging Germany to secure
special benefits from America or Spain
during tbe peace negotiations, are
solely an expression of the wishes of
the German people and they in no way
bind the government, which is now
more than ever desirous of fostering
the good will of America.
ESTIMATING THE FUTURE.
London, Nov. 28.���Conversations
whioh a representative of the Associated Press has had with politician!
here indicate that the interests of
Englishmen iu tbe United States eastern tariff is increased hy the b'l.ef
that once embarked in colonial acquisition the United StnteB will be compelled, as Great Britain has been, to
constantly  add to her colonies posses
sions whioh mny be thrown upon tl e
market, merely to 'prevent tliem falling into the hands of her rivals. The
inauguration of a "closed door"policy,
they think here, would do much potential damage to Britain's interests
aud every utterance tending to foreshadow tho "open door" policy has
been eagerly seized upon and magnified by the editorial writers.

-   GERMAN POLITICS.
Tho Emperor Returns to Find a Spirit
of Unrest aud Groat Dissatisfaction.
Berlin, Nov. 26 ���Emperor William
has retnrned home to find Germany in
a seething political ferment. All
clnsses of society seem permeated with
the spirit of unrest and dissatisfaction. In liberal and radical circles is
a feeling that there is too much personal rule element in the government
of the oountry and that this personnel
rule is doing much mischief. This
feeling haB found expression in a strong
article in Vorwaerts which discusses
the matter in its usual sarcastic and
able wny. It says: "There is an imperial chancellor and there are imperial Prussian ministers, but who hears
of them? Where is Prince Hohen-
lohe's? Whnt is he doing? No one
knows. We henr day after day of tbe
personal acts of the emperor, which
iu general pass for the nets of the government. The emperor is everywhere
and the chancellor is nowhere.''

MURDERED   FOR   HER   MONEY.
Rt. Louis, Nov. 26.���Aged Mi��.

lies across the river from here, was
murdered on Friday night, or enrlv
Saturday morning hy robbers, who ent
her throat and left her dead in fhe
front yard, after ransacking the house.
Mrs. Wvnne. who had frequently
considerable mqnev in the house, lived
entirely alone. The murder or murderers left no clue. It is not known
how much money they obtained, but
the amount must have been considerable.
Draws a Gloomy Fioture of the Outlook in
the Philippines���Carries
No Weight.
London, Nov. 26.���The London
office of a Philippine company has received a letter from its agent at Manila, dated Octorber 18, in which he
says: "The rebels are prepared already tu resist annexation. I am in
the confidence of their chiefs and I as-
ure you they are quite prepared to retire to the bills if more than a protectorate is attempted. I hope it will
not come to warlike proceedings for
it wonld be a very protracted affair.
The Americans would not find the
rebels as enBy as they did the Spaniards, for they formerly had only four
hundred rifles, while the rebels now
have 80,000 and 80 cannon, including
several maxims."
The Manila correspondent adds:
" Americans are not allowed to pass
tho rebel lines, without passwords.
A party of German officers thut attempted to do so without the password
were mistaken for Americans and
'ere refnsed permission. When it
was discovered they were Germans the
officers were permitted to proceed.
Tbe manager of this Philippine company, who has spent yearB in the
Philippines, does noi attach any importance to the foregoing plans. He
says the Americans have magnified
the importance and influence of Aguinaldo throughout.
There is n report in commercial circles thnt Spain will reorganise her entire financial system and readjust her
bonded indebtedness after the treaty
of peace is signed. This report disturbs the bondholders of Spain.
AFFAIRS AT  MANILA.
Berlin, Nov. 26���The Cologne Gn-
zetto publishes a letter from a correspondent at Manila asserting with
keen regret, "that half of the United
States hind and naval force there is
composed of Germans, " and giving a
far from flattering picture of American
rule at Manila. The Manila corre
spondent of the Vossische Zeitung
draws au eveu more gloomy picture,
dwelling upon the alleged prevalence
of drunkenness and other excesses
among the troops.
THE WRECE IS TOTAL
Hobson Reports to the Government on
the Marie Teresa.
Washington, Nov. 26.���Constructor
Hobson, arrived in Washington today
from Norfolk aud came directly to
the navy department. He has returned
from his trip on the Vulcan to Cat island, the Bcene of the casting away of
the Marie Teresa. He brought with
him tho report of Captain McCalfa,
who was in charge of the expedition
sent on the Vulcan to endeav.ir to save
the vessel. The report is merely nn
elaboration of the history of the "journey and its results, contained in the
telegraph report to the department,
and toiiches upon the present condition of the Teresa aud make the
wreck appear oven moro hopeless than
MeCnllu's telegram. HiB statement
wns strongly reinforced by' Hobson's
verbal report to Acting Secretary Allen today. Capt. McOalla resumes his
duties ns captaiu of the Norfolk nav
yard. Constructor Hobson goos to An
iinpolis to take np tho direction of his
course on naval architecture. He wns
desirous of returning to Santiago and
endeavoring to raise the Colon, but the
department hud mnde other arrangements that mndo this impracticable.

and development of the Kootenay, and
it is with this object that Mr. Gregg

COME TO TERMS
The Peaoe Treaty Will be
Signed at Once.
BIOS IS SO INSTRUCTED
It Will re Signed Without Reserve, as to
do so Under Protest Would Leive
Matters as They Arr>
Madrid, Nov. 26. ���The Imparcial today says: "The Spanish government
think that after the signing of the
peace treaty friendly relations between
the United States and Spain will be
resumed and the government would
negotiate directly on matters of secondary importance. The United States' last
requests were tbat the Paris commissioners be empowered to arrange a revision of the treaties of commerce and
a special treaty for the Philippines,
as well as to settle otber questions.
The Spanish cabinet is eager to accede
to tbe request and, therefore, several
additional sessions of the oommission
will be necessary -after Monday's sts-
sion.
Instructions were sent to Senor
Montero Rios to order him again to
insist that the absolute rights of Spain
in the Philippines should be maintained in accordance with tho very
clear toxt of article three of the protocol. However, the government declare
that Senor Montero Rios will sign
the peace treaty without reserve,' as
its signature under protest will deprive the treaty of a definite character
and leave matters as bad as ever, and
we have ministerial authority for saying that the government desires the
speediest settlement of these matters,
as otherwise they may result in grave
danger to Spain.''
ONLY ONE   DAY   TO DECIDE.
Washington, Nov. 26.��� Last night
Judge Dny cabled for instructions respecting Spain's latest propositions,
because that he felt that his hand
would lo strengthened by formal instructions, and lie waB told as he expected lie would be. tbat the president
preferred that the American commissioners should closely adhere to their
last offer relative to the Philippines.
Therefore, the American commissioners will meet the Spanish commissioners ou Monday, the last day of
grace so far as the Philippine proposition is concerned, under express aud
unyielding instructions to offer $20, -
000,000 for the cession to the United
States of the entire Philippine group.
It is not doubted tbat between now
and the honr of meeeting the Spanish
commissioners will have devised several other more or less plan sable propo
itions to offer in lieu of the American
ultimatum, but as indicated by thoir
instructions, their efforts will he unsuccessful ns Monday's meeting must
mark either the pructicnl cession of
the Philippines to the United States or
the final break iu the negotiations at
Paris, resulting from the seizure by
the United States of   the entire group.
BERNHARD WALTHER
A Musical Trest Enjoyed at the Presbyterian   Ohuroh   Concert   on
Saturday  Might.
Those who board Mons. Bernard
Walther at the concert hy the Nelson
Musical society on Thursday last were
glad of Ibt' opportunity t'i hear the
groat violinist again aud to have their
friends participate in the pleasure.
The opportunity was afforded on Saturday evening, and the Presbyterian
church wnB orowded on tho occasion.
The programme presented wns varied
as it was select, and although most of
Mons. Walther's numbers were of the
high classical typo, they were appreciated as keenly as if they were popular old favorites every bar of which
could be authoritatively critioized. Tho
programme opened with a beautiful
violin solo, by Wieuinwski "Romance
nnd Rondo, " which ut once stamped
the player as roaster of the king of
instruments. His style is thoroughly
refined and devoid of the slight! st
semblance of that coutortion and head
shaking which characterize the performances of many violinists of repute
if not fame. The tone produced was
beautiful, the bowing easy and elegant
and the double stopping extremely
skillful. Following this solo came
Fanuing's "Song of the Vikings,"
which brouuln iho Nelson Musical
Society ou (1.0 plulfuOn. This was to
have been the opeuing peice but several membefs not being on hand on
time, its place on the programme was
altered. As it was there were half a
dozen absentees, but nevertheless the
good ohl part song was so spiritedly
presented that a delighted audience
imperatively demanded an enoore. The
last verse was  repeated   in   response.
| Mr. Brougham wielded the baton with
' his well recognized effectiveness.
! Madame Walthi r was accorded an ui>
niistakeal In welcome as she appeared
for a first time h fore a Nelion andl
euoe. Her song was "For tbe Sake i f ,
tbe Past," (Tito Matei.) She is a
lady endowed with a mezzo-soprano
voice of great range and expression,
nnd aone who possesses tho bunny fac
ulty of selecting pieces admirably sui *
ed to her style. So pleasing was 1 I
rendering iu Ihis instance that i-iio
wns obliged to respond to the onci -e
demanded. Sho aid so by singing a
littleSeotoh ballad. "Hal Muoh I love
Yersel," Then followed a oiano solo
"The Flatterer," (Chamiuade) in
whioh Miss Eschelmann distinguished
herself for true expression and delicacy of touch, and received at tho
hands of her auditors a full meed of
appreciation. Mons. Wulther's violin
solo, "Adagio Pathotique," one of
Godard's gems of composition, fairly
brought down the house. To a greater
extent thnn eveu in his initial piece
did the talented artist show the extremes of pathos of which the violin
is capable. As might be expicted, he
was vociferously euoored, and treated
his auditors to another musicial gem
"Simple Aven," one of Shome's best
knowu efforts. Mdme. Waltbers followed with au appropriate little trio
of songs. "At Parting," "Tbe Ring,"
and '' Come Dance the Romiiikn.''
In these she was heard to great advantage, perhaps more particularly in
the sprightly lomaika���a moonlight
dance peculiar to tbe youth of fair
Greece in celebration of the feast of
May. Sainton's "Romance," which
waB set down to Mons. Walther to be
played on one string, was a novelty
which did not materialize much to the
disappointment of the audieuce. The
fact was that Mousiour wns not feeling
well and did not feel equal to the
effort. He. however, gave n beautiful
mazurka by Wieuinwski and a serenade by Fierne. In tbe latter he introduced a mute whioh had a charming
effeot upon the tone of an otherwise
voluminous instrument���when volume
of souud was desired. "Au Rouet"
was the last and tbe best piuuo solo iu
the nuuio of Miss Escholmnuu.but during its rendition the audience were left
almost in darkness owing to the failure of tlie electrio light. However tlie
solo was beautifully rendered���so much
so that ere the plaudits ceased the gifted pianiste had to resnme her seat at
the instrument. Hor response was
"Papillon," (Grieg). The song "Berceuse," with violin obligato and
piano accompaniment, again brought
Mdme '"altber forward, and so pleasing wai. che effect, that she hnd to ri -
appear in response to an encore. She
did so very pleasingly by singing Tom
Moore's little ballad "Love is Kind. "
The last item ou the programme was
a violin solo, "Scotch Airs," arranged
by Mons. Walther, in which he introduced a capital imitation of the bug
pipes, and a number of popular airs
including "Cock o' the North, " "Auld
Robin Gray," "Try, ��� Try, Try,
Again, "and 'Robm Adair." The
singing of the National A them,
brought to a close a most enjoyable
concert.
HELD, FOR MURDER,
A Toronto   Mun
"OESTION OF
Beat   His   Wife  ho
Badly That she   Died.
Toronto, Nov. 26.��� Rebecca Taggurt,
a woman who was so cruelly beaten
by her hnsbaud yesterday morning,
died enrly this morning nt tho genmal
hospital. An inquest will be held
this afternoon. Her husband is in
gaol and will undoubtedly bo tried for
murder.
VICTORIA'S SEALING FLEET.
Victoria, Nov. 26.���Several of the
sealing men have boen seeu in reference to the press despatch from Washington, saying that it is understood
that the values both Canadian nnd
United States appraisers put upou the
sealing fleet will not exceed half a
million dollars. Leading sealers, such
as Mr. Richard Hall, M. P. P., and
Mr. E. B. Marvin state that the number of sealing veBseils valued was 04,
and the value not less thun three-
quarters of a million dollars. The
United States' contention that ouly 110
vessels are actnsally engaged in sealing, Mr. Hull pronounces absurd,
as although only 30 vessels were out
last season, it was bocauso tbe Indian
crews could not bo secured, owing to
exceptional circumstances, the Indians
having taken a notion to go into thn
salmon fishing insteud. The vessels-
thut did not go out did nothing else,
und tbis idleness would only apply to
the oun season. As to the price to be
awarded, if the United States paid a
fair valuation for tho vessels, they
would make ouough ont of tho seals in
one year to pay buck the whole threo-
quarters of a million dollars.
WILL NOT RESIGN.
Montreal, Nov. 26.���Charles Langs-
lier, prints a loiter in ^e Soliel, denying that ho will resign his candidature in Levis at the request of Mr.
Tarte and declares that Mr. Tarto, instead of being opposed to him, is in
his favor, as will appear during the
election. Pacaund declared in Le Soliel the other day in favor of keeping
federal and provincial interests separate at Levis, intimating thnt other
wise tbe feeling against thn federal
ministers there would jeopardize
Langelior's eloction to   the legislator''.
JUDGMENT DELIVERED.
London, Nov. 26.���Judgment wus
given by the judical committee of the
privy council toduy refusing the loave
to appeal sought by President Mackenzie, of the Toronto street railway compnny, in his suit with the Building

] ment of tbe supreme court.

COL. PI0QUARTS   CASE
A Deputation of Senators Interviews the
Government and Asks That the
Trial be Postponed.
London. Nov. 26.��� President Leo*',
of the Paris court of cassation, in replying to tbe question of an interviewer, who asked "Is there any real jui-
tioe in Franoe?" said: "Ths very
case before the court is evidence that
the spirit of justice still lives in
Franoe. It is because many people
fear that thore has been a miscarriage
of justice that we are now passing
weary days and sleepless nights. This
will be carried on until all doubts ot
the -guilt or innocence of the Individual is olear. We shall endeavor to
perpetuate tbe time-honored tradition!
of onr oorirts We don't claim infallibility, bat tbe supreme oourt is so
hedged by precautions that our conclusions art ns just as human ingenuity
can make them. We are an emotional
people, but we are u just people. "
COL. PIOyUART'S   TRIAL.
Paris, Nov. 26.���A committee of
Leftist senators had an interview today
with the premier M. Dupuy, the minister of war, M. lie Freycinet; and
tbe minister of justioe, M. Lebre. The
senators demanded that the trial of
Lieutenant Oolonel Picquart on the
charge of revealing important military docnmen'B to his counsel be postponed .intil .������������ leoisiou of the conrt

did not indicate their probable action
in the mutter, M. Dupuy contenting
himself by saying that he wonld refer
the matter to the cabinet aud give tbe
committee u reply tomorrow. Several
deputies huvo announced tbeir intention of introducing on Monday a bill
niodifyug the military laws and - permitting appeals from conrt martinis
to tbe court of oassation.
NEARLY 80   YEARS IN   PRISON.
The Story a German   Deserter   Brings
From Algiers.
Berlin, Nov. 26.���A sensational story
ia related by a German named Fisher
who has returned home after five years
service in the foreign French legation
at Saidi, province of Oran, and elsewhere. Fisher, it appears, deserted
three months ago, succeeded in reaching Morocco and from tbere travelled
to Hamburg. He has now informed
tbe military autbori ties here that a .
Gorman hus been kept in severe imprisonment in a tower at Saids ever
since tho Franco* German war. According to the Vossitche Zeitung, the

Loudon, Nov. 26.���Ian MacLaren,
Rev. John Watson, lecturing ou Friday lust, described tbo typical American as beiug '' Tall, sinewy, nervous,
eager, self-confident and bright, with
enormous intellectual possibilities."
He added: "The New York man is
the money maker and the Boston man
is the book worm. Philadelphia is a
city of old families where each man
knew his neighbor's grandfather.
Chicago is the citv of hurry, in a
sense, a coarse oity, bnt one where the
navvy rises to own splendid art oollec-
Ijrs."

MUBIO IN NELSON.
Ne son num ers among Its population several musicians of more tban
ordinarv ability and it possesses two
vocalists in partioular who are probnbly tbe highest cultured and most accomplished of any in the west. Besides these there are many of lesser
note who are glad of an opportunity
of gratifying their lcve for the divine
art. We are glad to see that an effort
is being made to gather these ladies
and gentlemen into an association so
that they may bave better opportunities of indulging their taste for ipusio
for by such means tbe music-loving
public, and tbey form a large proportion of the populutiou ure i . r-tl that
they, too, can participate in the
pleasures such an association will
afford. Uf the elevating character of
good music, its refining influences and
moral effect, it is scarcely necessary
to speak, and we are safe in saying
that musical societies or unions havo
as salutary a result in maintaining
the moral tone of a community as the
churches hnve, and fill .an equally important part and one far more beneficial tban we give them credit   for.
There bas always been a musical
circle in Kelson, and this formed the
nucleus of the present Nelson Musi-
oal Society, which now numbers forty
members. They gave thoir first concert in the Presbyterian church on
Thanksgiving night nnd scored a marked success. The great lack hitherto has
been auy attempt a; classical or refined
music aud the way in which the
Nelsou society acquitted themselves
on this occasion caused as much surprise as delight. Tbat the very large
audience present understood and appreciated good music wns freely seeu
in tbe manner iu which the excerpt
from Tanuhamor was roceived.
That the number was rendered wiib
precision aud power charming to tho
musical ear was plain to every judge
of music, and that this difficult score
of Wngner's conld be so thoroughly
mastered and so effectively rendered
showed not ouly that the singers mast
have subjocted themselves to close
and careful training, but that it must
have been a labor of love with them.
Such excellence in so short a time must
be most gratifying and encouraging
to the couductor and malingers and it
gives promise of a great fntnro for the
society. Such au organization should
enlist the servics of all the musically
inclined, iuaasmucb as it will ensure
them practico with and training under efficient teachers and in compnny
with those aiming to excel in music.
It is deserving, ton, of the liberal
support ot the public, inasmuch as
such u society is a rouroe of much
high class outortaiumont and should
receive all thu eucourugement possible
for the great good it will do in this
respect.
CHINESE IN THK SI<OCAN.
A Sandon correspondent  who sent u
communication to The Minor on Saturday regarding the   outrages npon Chinese   in   that   neighborhood,   beggars
the   question   by   allowing his prejudice against   the Chinese   to  condone
violenoe   done   unon   thom.    Whether
the Chinese are objected  to   as   undesirable   is   not   tbe matter The Miner
discussed.    What   we held and do bold
is that these   objectionable   foreigners
purchase their admission to this couutry by bnying a certificate  at the port
of entry and that   having   gained   ad
mission thev are entitled to the protection of the law against niolestinu   just
as  white  or  any  other    meu    are.
There   ure some wbo   seem   to  think
that individuals have tbe right to take
tbe law into their own hands  against
persons obnoxious to tbem, bnt if that
were   permitted    persecution     woul
flourish  on all sides.    The Miner protests against mob  law.   It   is always
reokless,   unjust, revengeful aud cruel
and the vioionsness of it is   something
to be feared.    If permitted to vent  It-

it is the duty of every good oitizen to
oppose any proposal to resort to private means of revenge or repression.

would shrink as offensive to his self
respect. It is doubly offensive to say
tbat they compete with white meu in
these callings, bnt even if they did,
the law is npon their side and until
tbat law be changed they cannot be
forcibly driven off without exposing
tbeir perseoutors to punishment.
It is in tbe annals of tbe Slocun that
a certain mine manager did not want
to operate his mine on Sunday. Hib
miners were from the Coeur d'Alenes
where Sunday is a working day tbe
same as any other. They expressed their
preference for Sunday work, but the
mine manager had scruples upon that
subject and refused. Thereby he became obnoxious to them. So they
waylaid him at night and beat him on
the bead with rooks and would have
killed bim but for his strength ia repelling them. We understand it wus some
of this same imported stock that were
tbe leaders in the attempt to drive
Chinamen out of the Slocan. That
was our information and we believed
it to be true. But whether from the
Coeur d'Aiene or not the conduct of
theae men was reprehensible and the
best evidenco we have of this is that
the people of Slocau protested, as did
every respectable newspaper in tbat
district.
THE   EDMONTON   ROUTE.
S everal eastern papers, particularly
the Montreal S tar, have recency published narrations of returned gold
seekers who attempted to reach the
gold fields of northern British Columbia and the Yukon over tho Edmonton
route und because these men failed,
the papers draw the inference that it
is the trail that is to blame. The
route by Edmonton to the Peace river
is ns easy a way as any of getting into
tbe northern part of thin province. It
is all a question of the man. One
would not expect shopmen, mechanics,
laboring mon and others who were
roared in cities to go out into these
unknown rogions and pass through
them with the Ase of the practical
woodman and voyager. But because
totally inexperienced men who know
a saw-borso better than they dn a pack
saddle are not successful iu getting
aorosB country that does not siy that
th e country c��tunot be got across easily
and safely by men who know their
business. Men who could not begin to
paok a horse, who never bundled an
axe save to cut kindling wood and
then preferred a hatchet, who hud
never seen a river boat in their lives
or would not know a gold pan from a
wash dish when they saw it, started
out from tbe eaBt on whnt many of
them regardod as a summer outing.
These are tbe men who failed. And
because they failed, they manlike,
attribute their misfortunes to any
cause but tho right ono.
The Peace river route into thu gold
fields will yet bo n favored ouo and ouo
of importance to this provinco, inasmuch as it will opon up large tracts
of farming and timber lands belonging
to British Columbia, farming land
whioh for productiveness cannot lie
equalled any whore on tho globe. Bofore many yours a railway must go iu
that way, if it be not projected already, nnd would-be gold finders with
tender feet aud limited experience
should wait for that time. A railway
will admit of machinery being tnken
in to work tbe quartz claims of the
upper Peace and for hydruulicizing the
many auriferous bars and bunks witb
which the river and its tributaries
abound. Miners and prospectors with
knowledge of their busiuess will go iu
there and come ont rich und those who
turned back for want of pluck and
stamina to go on, and who now give
out their complaints through tbo
press, will increase their disappointment. Huudreds have gouo in by way
of Edmonton and hundreds will follow them to fortune in the gold territory, which grows in area each day,
and while the weak may sit down by
the waysitle to mourn, tlie strong will
press on, that tbey may share iu the
good things behind the mountuinp.
But the newspapers will always find
eomplaiuers and will always continue
to sensntionalize tbeir woe-begouo experiences.

LOOAL AND PERSONAL.
OAUSESGREATSURPRISE
It ii Looked Upon aa a Move to Nullify
German Power���Britain
Indifferent.
London. Nov. 26.���France and Italy,
after a decade of tariff wnrfare, have
surprised their frieuds and enemies by
concluding a commercial treaty whicli
promises to shift the balance of power
in Europe. But for the friendship of
the United States, which emboldens
Great Britain to comparative indifference regarding continental combinations, the British would be alarmed
at this prospect of Italy direoting the
triple allianoe anil; adding her formidable navy to the Franco-EuBsian com-
paot, which is held to be the inevitable resnlt of the re-union of the two
estranged Latin nations. The critics
here deem the treaty to be a sequel to
the Fashoda incident. France's decline in Egypt opens her eyes to the
necessity of increasing the number of
her ; friends. This fact has hastened
the negotiations with Italy whioh will
give her weaker neighbor the benefit
of tbe minimum tariff, long and vainly
sought by the latter. The Italians
estimate that under the new arrangement a millions hectolitres of heavy
sonthern wines, which are used in
mixing the lighter French wines,
will be exported to Frauce annally, resulting in a great impetus to Italian
industry. In return France expects
to remove the danger of having to onpe
'with the Italians navy in the Mediterranean in the event of a German war,
and also to nullify Germany's policy of
isolating France. Freo trade Britain
hns no subsidy she can offer to retain
Italy's support, but in the present
position of the world's politica, she is
not so solioitions for it as she should
have been a year ngo. What Great
Britain loses in Itt.ly, she gains iu
the Philippines.

Leave Man,'' was put on the boards,
and enjoyed by a well filled house.
There was a matinee in the afternoon,
"The Arabian Nights," which was
mainly attended by school children,
special inducements having been offered them at the ticket office. Although
the plot is by no means a deop oue, it
proved too much for many of the lit
tie ones, Thoy, however, appeared to
thoroughly enjoy the more ludicrous
positions in which circumstances
placed tbe mother-in-law and those
with whom she was reluo tantly
brought into contnot. The comic
singing of Paul Bordman Wai nlso a
very acceptable feature of the entertainment.
On Saturday night the "Ticket of
Leave Man" proved a good drawing
caid. The play was surprisingly well-
staged considering the accommodation, and if iu this particular it lost
anything, it wns moro than compensated for by the excellent manner in
which the vnrious characters were
sustained. R. E. French made an
ideal Bob Brierly���Iho dejected and
penitent ticket of leave man, while
Mamie Holden left nothing to be desired as the sportive young Sam
Willoughby. James Dalton, the man
of alinses, gave C. A. Smiley work
for which ho is well out out. Paul
Bordmau, aa old Moss the Jew, was
quite at home, and portrayed the cunning knave ns the author of the character would like to see it played. Eva
French created great fun as Grandmother Willoughby, and as the heartbroken but faithful little wife of Bob
Briorly Blossom Bordman was a great
success.   Hawkshaw,   the    detective

CHILKOOT'S FIRST VICTIM.
Louis Dahlman  Caught in a Storm on
tbe Pass und Frozen to Death.
Hoary Chilkoot'a victim of the winter of 1898 is Lous Dablmau, formerly
a well-to-do business!) man of Dyea.
Dahlman lost his life on Saturday,
November 12, while tryiug to make
his way through a blinding blizzard
from the summit of Chilkoot pass to
Lake Linderman. He ignored the entreaties of his companions to remain
at camp, and started early on the
morning of November 12 for the lake,
eight miles away. The following
day his body was found frozen stiff
behind a boulder only 1200 feet from
camp.
Dahlman started with a pack train
and a party of five men from Dyea,
Friday, November 11, for Atlin district. The pack train was owned by
Archie Burns, who started the flrst
steam hoist on the Chilkoot pass last
winter. Burns was himself in charge
of the party. They carried a small
outfit of freight and supplies for the
Atlin district. Arrived on the summit tney found a terrifflo storm raging. The snow oame down in such
quantities as to entirely obscure the
trail, and the wind was icy and blowing hard. On the summit the horses
refused to go farther, knowing by
instinct tbat to prooeed over the pass
was to invite certain death. The men
in the party, after trying in vain to
get the pack animals to continue over
the summit turned back and made
camp in a sheltered spot. Thnt evening Dahlman said that he had some
business to transact at Lake Linderman and intended pushing ahead of
the puck train the following (Saturday) morning. The other men in the
party tried to dissuade him from the
undertaking, which all realized was
hazardous in the extreme. Dahlman,
however, was confident that he could
make the journey of eight miles in
safety, end so on Saturday morning
he started.
"The storm did not abate any during Saturday and the men with the
pack train remainod in cnmp moat of
the day. Sunday morning broke
clear and calm and members of the
party set out to reconnoiter Jthe trail.
Twelve hundred feet from the camp
they found the dead body of Dahlman
lying frozen stiff beside a boulder
aloug tbe trial. It was surmised that
he had proceeded some distance along
the route to Linderman and then turned back, fearing that the storm would
be too much for him. It was plain
that he bad become exhausted and had
sought shelter from the fury of the
storm behind tht boulder. There his
faculties had succumbed to the frightful cold and he had simply frozen to
de'tth. The body was being brought
back to Skagway when the Laurade
loft.
LEVIATHAN   MINING  CO.
Good progress in now being made
with development work on the 11
claims constituting the Leviathan Gold
Miuing & Milling compauy, limited,
opposite Kaslo. This proposition
promises to become a very valuable
property, the iron capping, in places
BO feet wide, which can be traced for
ovor three miles, all within the company's property, a sufficiently good
indication that pay ore can be easily
reached. Economical working is assured from tho fact that the property
is ouly three miles from Kootenay
lake by un easily constructed wagon
road. An inquiry for a block of a million shares for London, England, has
beon recoived and indications point
to considerable interest in the company
being manifested, owing lurgely to its
otcoptional acreage iu addition to
general possibilities.

soon after the treaty is signed. He
declares that a loan has been fully
financed and that it is divided
equally between France and England
and adds that after the English cap
italints were shown the evidence on
whioh Don Carlos chances ^of success
are based, tbey offered several times

would have been secured bad it not
been[for;the fact that Don Caros stipulated bat there should be no assistance from the Jews, as be is apprehensive of them obtaining^ financial
control of the monarchy. Continuing,
it was asserted that the Spanish government has known for some time
that Don Caros possessed an army, organized into battalions and batteries,
officered and fully armed, but tbe
Spanish ministers counted on hia failure to secure fnnds. Therefore, tbe
Spanish government is said to be
panic stricken and co be endeavoring

to the Indian wotnan's'stories, was refused.    A   consultation   wasjield   by
tbe Indians, who ' decidedjto  kill (the

nights after,   Whitehall  were  asleep,
tbe Indians made a rush on the  camp,
killing the^entire   party fof  eighteen,
including    Missionary    Webber,   his
wife and   child.    After thejmassacre,

TJieir ConnsuJ  at Vancouver  Defeud
Them From Aspersions.
Vancouver, Nov. 28.���D. Alister,
an official of the Britain customs in
Shanghai in an interview says that although the educated Japanese are n
very lovable people the coolie class nre
intolerable to foreigners. Speaking if
the result of the revision of the treaties with the powers interested, Mr.
Alister says that the present maludmin-
stratiou of justice us far as foreigners
are concerned will be intensified to
an unbearable extent when the new
treaties come into force, doing away
as they will in thoir revised state with
consular courts and compelling a foreign prisoner to go before a native tribunal for trial. Mr. Alister sars
that the deatb rate iu Japanese prisons
is about five to Jone as compared with
tbe death rate outside of Japanese prisons and that he hus known of tv Britisher arrested as a simple drunk compelled to lie in theso prisons for days
before being liberated. Under the revised treaties he believes matters will
be more intolerant to foreigners than
ever. Japanese Consul Shimezu at
Vancouver, on being made aware of
Mr. Alister's opinions, said that very
often the foreigners iu Japan nre not
desirable residents. As an illustra
tion the British and Americans seem
altogether different in a British possession or in the United States from-the
British or Americans met with in
Japan. He did uot wish to make further inviiluuus distinctions except to
say that many foreigners in Japan
have a teutlnncy to lord it over the
poor ignorant coolie and sometimes
strike the luborer or jinriokshaw
men for the most trilling cause or for
no good reason whatever. These domineering actions are frequently resented and the foreigners severely pun
ished by the abused man' 's friends.
The reports go abroud that foreigners
aro assaulted without cause wheu the
contrary is very often the case, frequently the foreigner being, entirely, to
lilnme. As for Japan's prisons, he
supposed that the free air of heaven
was considerably more hoalthy thau
that to be found within the atone walls
of a prison, but the Japanese wore a
very cleanly people! nnd* be. wiw not
prepared to acknowledge tbat tbeir
prisoners were not in aa good conditions as those found in other countries. As regards tho revised' treaties,
it is true criminals will be tried after
July next by native tiihunals and
not by consular courts as heretofore,
but prisoners us usual may appeal to
the couusuls representing the conn-
tries in which they4 clttim oitizenshii-.
The treuties ask for the identical
privileges enjoyod by all other civilized
nations in their relationship to the
powers���equal rights for all.
