the virtual British abandonment

Groat Britain is sure to lose the
New Chwang trade, of which it
has had eighty per cent."
England's Brave Tars.
Following so closely the frightful wreck and loss of life and
terrible scenes on the French
steamer La Bourgogne comes
the loss of the British steamer
Mohegan, and with it a startling
contrast in the conduct of the
crews. Ou the French steamer
the sailors, according to stories
of passengers, deserted their
posts and fought like demons to
secure a place in the lifeboats,
although the sea was calm and
the safety of every passenger assured if cool heads had directed
the launching of rafts and small
boats. Women were displaced
by burly ruffians who forgot all
instincts of manhood aud few
helping hands were lifted to
rescue those unfortunates who
were not drawn down iu the
whirlpool following the sinking
of the ship.
The English sleamer met disaster when the storm was at its
height. The fury of the elements prevented lifeboats approaching the ship in time to
take off many of the passengers,
and it was certain death to remain on the ship. Yet the English sailors remained on the
doomed vessel and saw that the
women and children had places
on the rafts and lifeboats. With
few exceptions the officers and
common seamen lost their lives,
the remnant which escaped being those necessary to man the
only means of escape for the
passengers.
Americans have learned to expect heroism of this order from
the English tar. With him duty
is first, personal safety an after
consideration. It adds one more
branch to the imperishable
laurel wreath of glory which is
the heritage of Anglo-Saxon
manhood. —Spokesman Review.

United States Refuges to Assume
Spanish Obligations in Cuba.
Paris.—The American and
Spanish commissions closed their
first two weeks' of labor here today and the progress made has
been chiefly by negative action
in the attitude of the Americans.
The first article of tho protocol
provided "that Spain will relinquish all claims to sovereignty
over and title to Cuba". The
American's opened their case by
the assumption that little or no
action was necessary regarding
Cuba, on the ground that its dis
position was definitely fixed by
the terms of the protocol. Notwithstanding at the meeting last
Thursday the Spaniards submit
ted suggestions and propositions
amounting to holding that the
United States should take over
all or part of the Cuban debt, on
Tuesday Seuor Montrios ver
bally repeated it at length and
reiterated the same iu summarized form.
The Americans at their own
session on Wednesday took up
the Spanish presentation and determined the formulation of the
answer of the United States.
Careful, exact and full was the
preparation of the answer and
therefore it became impossible
as intended, to serve a copy of it
on the Spanish before the hour
of opening the session so lhat
the oral discussion might begin
promptly.
Thus it appeared that the Americans carried over the answer,
which was submitted at the
opening of the session occupy
ing four hours, instead of the
usual two hours, on account of
the exhaustive discussion of the
matter. Whatever may have
transpired at yesterday's session
whether the Spaniards were or
were not yesterday advised that the United States declined to assume the Cuban debt,
it may be distinctly said that
with such light as it has now the
United States commission will
consistently to the end refuse to
assume any part of the Cuban
debt. The Spaniards will, if in
deed it has not already been
done, have impressed upon them
the fact that by the signature of
tho protocol they utterly relinquished all claims of sovereignty
over and title to Cuba.
Thus possibly, progress has
beeu achieved negatively, for
with the present light, tho
Americans decline or will refuse
the responsibility of a single
peseta of the Cuban debt.
Saw the Emperor.
Pokin, Oct. ID.--The French
logation physician who visited
the Emperor this morning, made
a minute examination in the
presence of the Dowager Empress, Prince Ching and a niiuiber of mandarins. The exact de-
tails of the specific disease from
which the Emperor was suffering was not obtainable. Me was
weak and anaemic and requires
constant care, but there is no
Immediate danger. He is cheerful and showed the utmost deference to the Dowager Empress,
ho doctor promised to send hhu
a prescription, It was the suggestion of the British minister,
Sir Claude Macdonald, to the
Chinese foreign office, who requested a physician attached to
the French legation to examine
the .Emperor. Tlie reason assigned for the step being, that
this physician was the only one
officially attached to a legation. Tlie examination of the
Emperor by a foreign doctor was
a complete innovation. It had
often been urged but always refused by the Emperor himself,
and the Dowager Em press has
evidently taken this step for the
purpose of silencing the rumors
concerning the Emperor's condition.
Under Secretary of War.
London, Oct. 20 — George
Wingham, Conservative member
of parliament for Dover, has
been appointed under secretary
of war in succession to Rt. Hon.
Wm. St. John Broderick, recently appointed under secretary of
state for foreign affairs in succession to Lord Curzon, the new
viceroy of India.
The Davis Has Proper Speed.
The torpedo boat Davis, whicli
has just been completed by the
Wolff & Zwicker Iron Works of
Portland, was given a preliminary trial on the Columbia river
under the supervision of a naval
board. Por 45 minutes the
Davis averaged a speed of 24
knots, which is one and one-half
knots above the required speed.
The engines averaged 8^5 revolutions, or 15 above the specifications. The official trial trip
will take place next Wednesday.
DEATH   IN    THE    MOUNTAINS.
Alone  and Sick.    Help  Came  Too
Late.   Was Buried by Pros
pectors.
The following is the report of
Mr. J. C. Hooker in relation to
the death of Mr. Earnest Terry,
at the head of White Pish creek,
in the Purcell range of mountains:
"I went into the White Grouse
mountains to do assessment
work on some properties of mine
situated in that vicinity, and
failing to get the help which I
expected, went down White Pish
creek, a branch of the St.
Mary's river, about 5 miles to
get Earnest Terry to help me.
Mr. Terry was intending to hunt
and trap .there all winter. When
I arrived there I found Mr.
Terry sick and helpless. Mr.
Terry was taken sick early on
the morning of the 29th of
September, and from the time he
was taken sick, was not able to
do anything for himself. I cut
wood and did what else I could
for him, and on the 4th of Oct.
returned to Sanca where I found
Mr. Asslin, who returned to the
camp to take care of Terry, who
showed no signs of getting better. 1 lotui'uod lo Nelson on
the night of the Hth of Oct. to
ask the gold commissioner for
assistance to take the sick man
to a plaoe where he could get
medical treatment. Mr. Dennis
rendered ull the assistance possible, I then early ou the morning of the 12th, left for camp
with a stretcher intending to
take the sick iiinn to Prico McDonald's camp in what is called
Macaroni basin. W« arrived at
Terry's camp and placed him on
tho stretcher, and carried him 5
miles lo McDonald's cabin,
where he died in about three
quarters of an hour after arrival; lhis was aboul (i o'eloek
p. in. on the 12th of Oct, We
buried him on llu; morning of
the I'lth. His grave was well
marked, and the men present
were, Messrs, Jus. Warner, .las.
Martell, Jessie Hutchinson, John
Moore, A. Asslin and J. ('.
Hooker. Mr. Terry's trouble
seemed to be in his bowels, und he
could not get anything to stay
on his stomach; he was consumed with fever and was continually crying for water. Terry's

said that he has a brother in

"As Vim Like It. Am 111. Sonne V."
In connection with the announcement made, in another column
of the present issue, by the rector of St, John's church, calling
a general meeting at his residence, Thursday evening, Nov.
iird for the specific purpose of
organizing a Shakespearean club
for a critical reading of that rich
mine of English literature, we
wish to say this paper gives, to
the laudable venture, its moral
support and influence.
It goes without saying that
several good effects will follow:—
The habit of reading good
substantial literature will be form
ed. It is beyond question that
all adults read more or less, but
all do not have a live interest in
the more reflective and meditative master-pieces, simply because a taste or habit has not
been formed. It is no doubt
delightful to road the lightest
latest thing of the hour, written
in the lightest latest sensational
manner of the hour; but after
all, what is Wi Yanittts vanitii-
tttiii. What does it leave? A
vacuum! It is therefore undoubtedly better to read the
standard authors and produc
tions though at first they may be
dry and empty. Choose that
course of action which is best
and custom will soon render it
most agreeable. The habil and
custom will come if you will:—
"But screw your courage to the
sticking place." Shak., Macbeth, Act I, Scene V.
In reading lhis particular
author systematically throughout the winter tlie thoughts and
words of the readers would be
Shakespearean in character.
Man is a part of all that he has
ever met, and by meeting this
author his very principals and
sentiments will become a part
and parcel of our mental furniture. There will, in conversation, come the appropriate quotation and apt expression, which
will be like apples of gold in
pictures of silver. It is true
that there are innumerable proverbs and sayings of Shakespeare
travelling about incognito, but
then we should see the source
and fountain, and appreciate
these household aphorisms.
What could surpass the following either in actual form or Intrinsic worth:
•'Pitchers have ears,	
Why hath a Wherefi
good heart's worth gold
not a sleeping wolf," "All hoods
make not monks," "Onnnitlance
is not quittance," "Time must
friend or end." "Something is
rotten in the Stale of Denmark,"
"Truth is Truth to the end reckoning,".
Mul in the midst of such illimitable wisdom, crystallized lu
eternal form, where shall we
select? In the midst of such
unfathomable profusion we can
not pick and choose. Hy a careful Investigation of thu plays
read, all Ihese wise proverbsand
beautiful gems would become a
isting mental inheritance. And
since memory is lhe only paradise out of which man cannot be
driven, we can live thore in
peace uud rest. Anon we could
do as Shakespeare:   "When to
ent
re-
•Kvery
" "A
•Wake
llie     session     of    sweel
thought he summoned
incmbrance,"
And again there would he true
mental culture. There i.s nothing in the world bul man, there
is nothing in man but mind. It
however needs culture and development, ll is the one thing
that needs absolute and concentrated attention. It is not
enough on the one hand to be able
to quote parrot-like poetry and
authors, ml infinitum. This does
not constitute knowledge! It is
all very well to have these fundamental facts and quotations,
but these should be only stepping stones. On the other hand
from facts and memorizings we
should rise lo reason,that this is
the highest and only distinctive
function of man. Think! think
for yourself! "f accept unreservedly", sage Horace Greely,
"the statement of no man living
or dead."
He was a wise mnn! If therefore, in the least, we may be
taught the easiest and withal the
most difficult thing In life, viz.,
to think, this reading club will be
a grand undertaking. Read,
mark leant and inwardly digest.

British Columbia's Advantages.
To the capitalist and investor
British Columbia presents one
distinct advantage, viz., it is
under the British Hag, and consequently every assurance is
given that laws will be properly
administered and ovary protection given to life and property.
It is also a great advantage to the
country that it has practically
been brought within easy touch
of the great commercial centres
of the world, since almost any
portion of il, except those outside railroad communication, can
be reached within a fortnight
after leaving London, the great-
.est possible comfort boing afford
fid moreover both by boat and
rail, to the traveller.—London
Times.
PLEBISCITE ELECTION IB VOID.
Dominion Govornmsut Will  Ignore
the Whole Proceedings.
A special despatch fromOttawa
to a Toronto paper says:
"Judging from present returns
on the prohibition vote, barely
one-fourth of those ontitlod to
voto gave expression to their
opinion on Thursday, September
29th. As a consequence it is
learned that the government
will ignore tlie whole proceed
'niK*. A few ministers in town
are reticent and decline to speak
for publication, but the fact it
known that no notice will be
taken of the vote. It is pointed
out that the largest majority recorded is that against prohibition
in Quebec, and thai apathy was
general among the voters."

SATURDAY, OCTOBER 211, b
MUNICIPAL    INCORPtil.ATIi'N.
IT will, we presume, be agreed
that uo community in the
province has uvsr amounted to
anything: tl.ut was nol iucorpor-
atetl. It is u necessary sequence
therefore, of progress.
There is no citizen   of   Fort
Steele who does not believe that
the progress of this town is to be
great and rapid.    If tliis were
not so there would be no use of
talking of the inatter at all.   The;
•only difference of opinion is, that:
..some think it would be better to
have tin' town incorporated at
jan early date, while others think
jt would be better to wait until j
jiext spring.
Wlmt we think should bedonel
is to give the citizen's of Fort
Steele the opportunity of discussing the matter, and we invite from all those interested,
"pro or con", their ideas as to
what should be dono, and when.
And we trust we shall be able to
give nn intelligent expression of
views on both sides of the question.

No one cun read the official
papers and duly credited reports
which have conic from the mineral districts of lho Fort Steele
counlry, corroborated by declarations of mining engineers and
(Capitalists of tho United Slates,
England and Canada, without
being proud of tlio prospects of
lhis district.
We have here in this country
the richest mineral areas on the
continent. It is yet in its infancy I Kvery day is proving
more and inure the value of our
mines, and the many companies
that have acquired properties

Port Steele always has been,
and   still continues to  be  the
argest  and   most   prosperous
town in South East Kootenay.
The town is commandingly situated on a bench overlooking the
Kootenay river at its confluence
with Wild Horse creek and the
St. Mary's river. It has a splendid view of the Selkirk range of
mountains to the west, aud immediately back of the town to
the east, distant only two miles,
are  that portion of the main
range of the Rockies called "The
Steeples.''   Away to the south
the mountain  ranges  on   both
sides of the valley and the windings of the Kootenay river form
a most magnificent view.    Port
Steele has a population of 1000,
is the seat of the Provincial government, the County Court hold
its sittings here, it is the hub of
the  dislrict,  as  all  roads and
trails diverge from Port Steele.
On the east side of the Kootenay
river we lind in the vicinity of
1,1(10 mines and prospects recorded, nearly three fourths of
all recorded in llm district are
found in the'main range of the
Rocky Mountains.   All this vast
territory and its mines, are supplied from Porl Steele.    Rail-
tockies ways cannot make towns, unless
mean- there is something to back up
river, the railway.   Port Steelo has its
valley mineral  zone,  upon which the

SATURDAY, OCTOUKH 21), 18118.
FRANCE   DTOST   GET   OUT.
Gnat Britain  Will Not Brook  Rivalry iu the Soudan.
London, Oct. 17.— New York
Journal special.—All signs point
to war between England and
France. England is preparing
quietly and unostentatiously to
put her warships in order, and
orders have been issued lhat no
English manufacturers are to
make or accept contracts for
arms and ammunition without
the consent of the government.
Work i.s being rushed on all the
war vessels in the dock yards.
One leading small arms manufacturer has tan asked if ho is
prepared to turn out 1,000 mag-
izine rifles weekly. This is significant when it is remembered
that the government factories
alone are turning out about 4,000
u week. Prance is not reported
to be in active service,
Prance Will Not Tight.
Prance's unusual aud warlike
preparations have caused much
speculation nnd mild astonishment iu Britain, while there is
no >var scare this sido of the
channel and most of the newspapers comment on the situation
as a "bluff" that aught to be
called aud a stronger hand of
the same kind shown. The situation as it now stands is this:
"Prance has suddenly displayed
great activity in her navy, uiob-
iliiiing ships and rushing others
into commission, and today thero
began u suspicions movement of
men towards sea coast towns.
Asked by u leading expert tonight what Hm two countries
had to light about as everything
seems peaceful enough except
the Pashoda incident: "Fight
about!" he exclaimed. •'Then'
are scores of things to light
about. No big incidenls, if is
true, but lots of lillie things, and
we have stood enough, Every-
whore England and  Franco are
rubbing shoulders., In every
movement you are always sure
to see Prance taking the opposing side against England. We
have got to have it out some day,
and it might as well be now as
ever. We don't know what this
French bluff means, but you may
be sure there is something in
the air. Still, what folly for
Prance to think of making a warlike bluff, when the English outnumbers hers almost two to one.
It may be only a shrewd move
to stir up enthusiasm in Prance
in order to make the people forget the Dreyfus and other internal squabbles. The most suspicious thing to meet is Count
Muravieffs visit to Paris from
St. Petersburg."
Paris, Oct. III.—In spite of
semi official denials. L'Echo de
?aris asserts today the embarkation of war material and supplies continues at Toulon, adding that extraordinary activity
reigns at arseiiol there. Besides
the ironclads Admiral Techou-
ard, Bouvines, Jeinmapos, and
Vnhny, the cruisers Alger, Lev-
rier and Caiman, it claims are
getting ready for service, embarking ammunition and war
materials. In addition it further
asserts that the transports Bien-
boa and Oironde are almost
ready for sen.
All the French naval officers
on leave of absence are ordered
to return to their vessels. The
naval authorities at Toulon are
reticent. A dispatch to La Petite Parisienne from Toulon, confirms tho reports of L'Echo de
Paris and says the greatest activity prevails in the navy yard
where work i.s proceeding nl.
feverish speed day and night.

SATURDAY, OCTOBKR 211, WIS.
Ottawa Letter.
frnni I'llll*  Own f'nlT.'.siiiiiiilciil,
Ottawa, Oct. 20.- The financial siiiiemeiii I'm* September is
ii worthy successor to the long'
1 ki nl' satisfactory announcements Mint Mr. Fielding has
boon nhlc lo make this year, in-
as-much ns ii shows nearly a million dollars lucruuso in the revenue, uiul ii decrease in expenditure
nnd also in tho public debt, With
September's ligures Ihn total receipts tor the yeur on consolidated lund account were-jl 1,1*11,Hill)
as against $8,1114,7*17 last year,
and increase of $8,127,152. The
decrease ol expenditure in the
same account i.s $117,114-, the
Hg'liros being $1,870,088 for
September 1807 and $1,752,141
for September 181)8. The customs revenue has increased $11*,
alii iii the same period. Of the
capital expenditure for the
month, which is $1,030,156, $515-1
1500 is chargeable to public works, j
railways and canals, the deepening of the St. Lawrence system
being the main item, and $100.-;
750 for railway subsidies, As
the public funds in September
1897 were i ui ly charged $829,0	
on these two items the increase!
in the expenditure is very much
more than accounted for.
AN  HONEST QUESTION,
The Seattle Post Intelligencer
is not generally looked upon as
particularly favorable to the
Canadian administration in the
gold fields; in fact it has placed
opposition alarmists under a
deep obligation by the amount
of ammunition it has supplied in
the shape of sonsational stories
of alleged official crookedness.
When it does happen lo give an
item favorable to the Government therefore, it will nol be
suspected of being prejudiced.
In its news columns one day last,
week if was staled thnl, al a
meeting of the Oity Ohambor of
Commerce held the previous day
"Mr. W. R, Itoone declared that
tho uiueh-talltnd-of royally of
tho Canadians was justifiable*
and that after ten years experi
once in working under the Cana
diun laws he was prepared to
state Ihey were better in every
respect ihan the American laws
and   butter administered'
will now be in order for opposi
tion papers to explai i that Mr.
lioone is a hireling ssi the "terrible Sifton" or they may even
be able to discover that he is a
relation.
"Till!-.    PEOPLE    WE    HAVE    TO
DEAL    WITH
As far back as the lirst week
of tha present year e.vgold com
It
missioner Thos. Pawe
son made a report t
traitor Walsh, from
ett of Daw-
Adininis-
which   the
following extract is taken: ' 'The
people we havo to deal with
offer bribes on every hand and
scandals were started even about
our own office, which reached
such proportions that I posted
up notices, requesting anyone
who could bring an/ evidence
of any wrong doing against any
member of my office staff to send
his name and address, and I
would appoint a time for an investigation. Thus far no charges
have been brought forward*'.
The thought naturally' suggests
itself, how can it happen that no
intimation of the existence of
this frightful den of Iniquity
reached the east in ime to be
broughl io the attention of parliament, which sat till tho middle of June? It seems to be a
pecularity of the opposition
charges that they iro always
considered, by their authors,
more likely to prove effective at
long distance.
THOUGHTFUL TOU   TIIEIIl   FEKI.-
INOS.
With ii consideration for the
feelings of his opponents, which
is us touching as It is tare, the Ontario Premier bus call id the local
bye-elections in tho two constituencies where the de'ealed min
islers, Messrs. Oibsoi and Dry
den, are the candidates, for October -7th, the earlie
moment after the va
st possible
lanclos oc
cured. Mindful of Ihe nngiiisli
shown by Ihn opposition at thc
bare thought of ministers of the
Town being without seats, Mr,
Hardy has done everything
humanly possible to alleviate
their distress, and it is only a
matter of a couple of weeks before the heads of these two important departments will bo sufficiently qualified to satisfy even
a Whitney or a Calder.
CANADIAN ENTERPRISE.
A notable line of improvement
in home industries which must
be gratifying to every loyal Can
adian is observable in the publishing business, every yoar
witnessing a larger number of
Canadian editions of well known
authors, besides excellent productions from native pens. Ono
of the most recent in the former class is an excellent volutnne
of Rudyard Kiplings short
stories, collated under the title,
The Day's Work", and published by George Moraug of Toronto. To lovers of Kipling, and
who does not aspire nowadays
tp be included in that class, these
stories will need no further
words of commendation, than
that they are thoroughly characteristic, and equal to the best
that has come from his wondor-
fnl versatile pen. This particular edition is a creditable production typographically and
otherwise and if it is possible to
make Kipling still mora popular
than he is at present among Canadians, the appearance of his
latest work from the hands of
Canadian workmen, will surely
do it.
THU PLEBISCITE.
Tho official returns of tho
Plebiscite are coming in very
slowly and it will be some weeks
yot before anything like complete returns will be obtainable.
Tlie most interesting, and at
the same time .startling, development this week is the manner
iu wliich the adverse majority in
Quebec is growing. It is oven
claimed now that if will reach
thn enormous total of 00,0110 and
this will in all probability wipe
out the affirmative majorities in
all of the other provinces and
leave a net vote throughout tho
Dominion against Prohibition.
Whether this bo so or not the
fact remains more apparent  lo
day than ever, that prohibitionists have not established a case
upon which they can hope to
induce any government to introduce prohibitory legislation, and
it is gratifying to find thatmost of
the loaders of the temperance
party frankly though regretfully
admit this. Tho Government
has carried out the pre-election
promise and given the country
as a whole the opportunity that
has been so persistently sought.
The Government and the party
both abstained in their corporate
capacity from taking any part
whatever in the contest, the conditions were absolutely favorable
for a fair expression of public
opinion, and the result being as
it is, it is to be hoped for the
sake of all parties, and of the
country, that the matter will disappear from the arena of practical politics for many years to
come.
yUKBEO CONPERKNCE.
The Quebec Conference has
adjourned once more, to meet
again in a couple of weeks at
Washington. While tho Commissioners maintain absolute
silence as to tho detailed results
of their deliberations so far, the
ollieial announcement i.s made
lhat "considerable progress"'
marks their work. Coining direct from tho chairman of the
Commission, this means much,
and there is better grounds today
for tho hope and belief that very
substantial results will be the
outcome of the Convention. The
very fact that the Commissioners
have decided upon a name for
the treaty aud a place whero it
shall be signed is excellent indication of this.
