Important Telegraphic  News From
All Over the World.
JIM mill's railway scheme.
There is no cessation in naval
and military preparations. The
attitude of the marquis of Salisbury towards tlie commercial
side of tho question is explained
by the London Times, which,
after reiterating Great Britain's
determination not to allow
France a foothold in the Bahr-el
Ghazai province: "A French
outlet to the Nile for commercial
purposes is secured by our gen-
oral policy, and may be doubly
assured by a treaty, provided
she (France) grants Egypt reciprocal commercial facilities in the
French Congo.
The English point out that the
evacuation of Fashoda is
only tin instalment of the
satisfaction expected by
Great Britain, and that France
has yet to swallow the pill of
withdrawing.
The admiralty has suspended
its operations and the daily an
nouncements of British ships a-
broad, and naval men express
the opinion that such far
reaching preparations mean
more than naval a 'demonstration.
The whole reserve squadron has
assembled at Devonport, and is
now completely fitted out and
ready to sail at a few hours notice. Besides this, eight reserve
cruisers at Portsmouth, three
first class cruisers, and five second class cruisers have been ordered to be commissioned for
service with the Emergency
Squadron.
The duke of Orleans, who is
now at Brussels, is being closely
shadowed by French detectives,
as the French government have
been warned that he is preparing for some important movement.
The activity of Prince Louis
Napoleon, is causing more anxiety to the French government.
He is evidently awaiting an
opportunity and his chances are
infinitely more favorable than
tbose of the duke of Orlean's.
General Kitchener was the
guest of Queen Victoria at Balmoral Castle during tlie early
part of the week, and presented
her majesty with some interesting relics of the battle of Omdurman.
Victoria, Nov. (i.—The Legislature will meet for the dispatch
of business on the 5th day of
January, 18ilii.
Ottawa, Nov. (i— Thursday,
the ilth day of Nov. will be observed as a day of general
thanksgiving and prayer.
Victoria, Nov. (i.—Thomas

of British Columbia,
Wei Hai Wei.-All the British
warships are now fully coaled.
Their wood work has beon removed and they are prepared for
emergencies.
Hill's Scheme.
Chicago, Nov. 5.—The Tribune
ihe past few days, but no information of the subject is obtainable. It is reported that the
British gunboats have been ordered to rendezvous here. At
the navy yard here the ordinance
department is most aclivo and is
engaged in mounting siege guns.
The Berlin correspondent of
the Daily News says: "It is asserted in well informed quarters
that the British war preparations
are connected with the Philippine question in whioh the United States government is working
in agreement with England. The
rumors are revived that the
United Slates intends ceding to
England some of tlie islands or
granting coaling stations there.
says: "The Great Northern intends to make application at Ihe
next session of the Canadian parliament for a franchise lo extend
the Spokano & Northern through
Southern Ilritish Columbia,
The franchise desired by the
Great Northern is believed lo be
for a more ambitious enterprise
than has yet been revealed. The
roal object is reported to be a
paralleling of the Canadian Pacific Crow's Nesl line through
Southern Ilritish Columbiii.
Honk   Kong. -Extraordinary
activity has prevailed in naval
and military circles here during
HAS ON FIGHTING CLOTHES.
Spain Is In the Sulks- Refuses to
Consider Giving* Up the
Philippines.
Washington, Nov. 0.—The administration is waiting results
from the peace commission with
equanimity, in the realization
that the government is perfectly
prepared for any turn tlie negotiations may take. The United
States is prepared to block any
hostile move, and the navy is in
a state of preparedness, should
it come to a resumption of
hostilities. One by one all the
splendid fighting machines of the
North Atlantic squadron, which
had been brought uorth at the
| earliest moment,  were docked,
leaned, aud thoroughly refitted
at different navy yards. Admiral
Dewey has placed his fleet in as
good condition us possible out«
ide oui' home navy yards. Ad
miral Bruce telegraphed the
navy department that the Buffalo
and Helena have sailed for tho
Philippines via Suez. With these
accessions coming immediately
upon the heels of Captain Barker's squadron of ships and colliers, Dewey will have a formidable lleet, probably second in
offensive power to only ouo
European nation, namely, England, in eastern waters.
Seeking a Market For Coal.
We understand that the Loth-
bridge Coal Co. intend sending
coal as far west as Nolson, and
are arranging to supply the
towns along the lino. It is their
intention to ship nothing but
first class coal, and sell it at a
reasonable price. This is certainly good news for the consumers, and will be the means of
keeping the price within reasonable bounds. At present the
price of coal is too high, when
we consider it can be bought at
the mine for *2 per ton, F. O. B.
Crow's Nest Coal Shares.
Theso shares which were quoted recently at lit Iti  per share,
have now reached iHlH, and none
offered for sale at that price.
United States Of Central America.
San Francisco, Nov. 1.— The
Steamer Acapulco, which arrived from South America today
brings news of the coalition of
tho Threo Central America
States, Salvador, Nicaragua and
Honduras, which will bo conducted under a common administration, to be known as the
United States of Central America.
The inauguration of the new
regime was to be ushered in today, according to the Acapiilco's
passengers, and a grand celebration in honor of the event wns
to lie held al Amapiila, whicli i.s
to lie the seal of government,

The story that Russia has so*
cured a port oil the lied Sea
seems to be true. Of the importance of the Muscovite move
there call lm little doubt, The
strategical value of Rubella may
be guessed from the fuel that il
lies in tlie vicinity of the British
Islund of Porlm, where the
waterway is quite narrow. Its
possession will enable Russia to
have a say as to the future both
of Egypt and the sucred places
of Miihointnedaiiisin on Ihe other
side of the lied Sett.
OBJECTION   SET   A8IDE.
Justice    Martin's   Decision   in   the
Election Cases.   The Baillie vs.
Baker Protest.
Justice Martin on Thursday
gave his decision in the election
cases argued before him, dismis-
ing all tho summonses asking
that the petitions be struck off
the files. The immediate result
will be that unless the respondent in the case of Baillie vs.
Baker, appeals and get an adjournment, the case will come up
for trial on the Kith day of November, (Wednesday next).
The Nelson Tribune says:—
"Some years ago justices Crease,
McCreight and Drake mude an
order that whenever by the Provincial Controverted Elections
Act and Rules any power is
given to or authorized to be done
by the cliief justice, then in the
case of a vacancy or of his absence from the province such
authority may be exercised by
the senior pusine judge or any
of the judges. On July 25th,
1898, Mr, Chief Justice Walkein
made an order appointing Registrar Drake to be "master" (pursuant to section 209 of the Provincial Election Act), under the
said act and rules.
These two orders were attacked as being beyond the authority
and jurisdiction of the judges.
Then it was contended in the
alternative that if tlie judge had
a right to appoint a master to
perform the duties of tlie prescribed officer mentioned in the
act, then the order of Mr, Justice Crease, dated 4th of August
1894, whereby he appointed
Harvey Combe (the deputy registrar), governed and the order
appointing Mr. Drake was of no
effect.
Other technical objections were
raised, but the chief one was as
stated above, against the appointment of Mr, Drake, and if his
appointment was bad his petition
was never presented to the court,
as the act requires that
it be delivered to the prescribed
officer, etc.
His lordship held that none of
the objections were good, and so
dismissed the summonses. The
cases up were Victoria, Esquimalt, Comox and North Nanaimo. It is not known whether
tho decision will be appealed,
and, failing appeal, the Esquimalt case will come up on Monday.

Navigation of the  Kooteniiy  Rivor.
As ii means of transporliilion
a water route is ul nil times
much to lie preferred to ruilwuy
I facilities, and lo the town of Fort
Steele the Kootenay river will
ut nli times afford u direct, und
r    il  means of transportation.
It is expected that Mr. J. R.
Roy, Dominion engineer, will
shortly commence work on tlie
contemplated improvements lhat
are necessary for the navigation
of the river.
The North Star lias been haul-
ed out at Jennings und will be
thoroughly overhauled. Welearn
thut the navigation com puny are
about to close several contracts
thut will enable the boats to run
all through tlio season. It i.s
also reported thut a new boat
will be put in commission next
spring. This means that ut
least three large steamers will
ply on the Kootenay river between Porl Steele and Jennings
next yeur.
When .Mr. Ray was ul I'ort
Steele he stated that work on
the river would commence pos-
ibly in October, and as the river i.s now at its lowest, it would
be the best time to examine the
bars und see where the work
cun be done to the best advantage,

Resist American Demands,
London,   Nov.   I.    Tlie Paris
correspondent of the Daily Telegraph says:
The disagreement between tho
Spanish and American peace
commissioners, wliich under ordinary circumstances might have
caused alarm throughout Europe, is hardly noticed owing to
the Fashoda affair. The Spaniards are in a position to know
aud assert that their government
will resist the American demands, and will offer the Philippines for a lump sum. If this
proposal is not accepted, Spain
will recnll her commissioners
and let the Yankees do what
they choose. I am assured, however, that a rupture on Friday
is improbable. Spain will endeavor by arguments and appeals to gain whatever concessions are possible, but she will
not risk tlie renewal of hostilities.
London, Nov. 1.—The Daily
Chronicle suys, editorially this
morning:
"A war in which tlie justly
vanquished nation receives a
solatium of $80,000,000 would lie
a novelty so great thut it mils)
lie seen to lie believed, In any
case il would lie madness for
Spain to attempt to resume hostilities.

the
and  Silver  Product of
World Figured Up.
'The report of the director
of the mint at Washington
an the world's production of
precious metals for the calendar
ytfar of 1897, shows a total output of $2;*!", 504,800 gold, and
#236,780,300 silver, coinage
value. The amount of silver
produced during the year, 183,-
ffi»j,000 ounces, was the largest
on record, although the output
ml: the United States, 58,860,000,
was nearly 5,000,000 ounces less
than that of the previous year.
While many of the larger
silver mines of this country were
(tlosed during the year, the aggregate does not show a proportionate falling off, owing to the
increased output of silver as a
by-product of load and copper
mines, which amounted to Iio
per cent of Iho total.
The value of the gold produced in the United States for the
.year was #57,368,000, which was
nu increase of $4,275,000 ovor
that of tlio previous yoar. The
South African republic produced #57,683,«61, a gain of $18,854,-
192, and for the first time in 40
jfuars displaced the United States
fcom the lirst place in the gold-
producing countries of the
world. Gold and silver was produced in 25 states and territories, Colorado leading with 924,-
1*86 ounces.of gold and 21,086,-
400 of silver. Tho value of the
Alaskan output was #2,800.000
(or silver and an equal amount
for gold.
The world's coinage during the
jyear, including ro-coinagos, was:
Gold, #487,710,842i silver, #1-12,
380,588, or a total of #580,009,-
JK-K1 That of the United Stales
in the same period was: Hold
■"176,028,485, aud silver #18,487,-
397. Of tho latter amount #12,-
651,731 was in standard silver
-dollars coined from silver purchased under the Sherman act.
The higliest L*ndoti price for
silver during the year was 20 13-
16 pence, the lowest 23 3-4 pence,
and the average price 27 0-16
pence, equivalent to #0.60449
in United States money per
ounce fine, at which the bullion
value of the silver dollar was
#0,467.
The value of the net gold exports for the year was #512,600;
silver, #20,287,612. Gold to the
value of #11,201,150 were used
in the industrial arts in the
United States during the year,
and the world's consumption
during the same period was:
Gold, #50,005,080; silver, #40,-
435,575,
On January 1st, 1808, the metallic stock of the United States
consisted of, gold, #745,245,053;
silver, #985,310,046, or a total
of #1,380,556,017.
Awful Voyage.
The steamer Gelivera, from
Hamburg, via St. John's, Niid.,
had a hard time crossing the
Atlantic to St. John's. For days
her decks were swept, and her
life boats, bulwarks, rigging and
deck gear destroy od. One of
her crew was knocked down by
tho force of tho seas and seriously injured. The steamer ran so
short of fuel for her furnaces
that sho was forced to burn fifty
tons of sugar in order to steam
to St. John's. Such weather
none ever witnessed before.
The culminating point was
reached on the 8th when a terrible sea breached over the side,
smashing her starboard gig,
driving the boat chocks overboard and breaking the life boat
in pieces, tons of water swopt
f oro and aft. Hailstones as largo
as ducks oggs mado it dangerous
to remain on dock. At 1.80 p.m.
tlio ship lay in tho trough of the
sea, and everything movable was
carried away. No. 2 gangway
was broken into match wood,
Tho second starboard lifeboat
was rendered useless, while
water ruslmd in tons down the
stoke hold and engine room.
'l|wo days later, with the storm
as wild as ever, a soa swept tho

Just after dark a sea boarded
her, flooding the wheel .house,

the relieving tackle went away

Tuesday at 2 p.m.,the chief engineer reported the coal getting
short and at once the cargo was
breached to mix with what remained in the bunkers.
Everyone was engaged in
breaking up and cutting all the
woodwork to help the ship along

that brought her to land.
Newspaper Postage.
On the first of January, 1800,
all the newspapers published in
tho Dominion will be called upon
to contribute to the revenue of
the country by paying postage.
The rate will be one-quarter of
a cent per pound until the 1st of
July, when the rate will bo increased to one-half a cent per
pound.
The September number of
Type and Press, a Toronto journal, gives some figures showing
the outlay which American journals are obliged to make by the
postage which is paid by newspapers across the line. During
the past year the postage bill of
the Philadelphia Record was
over #18,000, and the total sum
paid for this purpose by tho combined dailies of New York, Hos-
ton, Philadelphia and Chicago
during the term was about#500,-
000. This will give an idea of
what some of the larger Canadian dailies will bo forced to
pay. Of course lho reduction of
letter postage to 2-cents por
ounce will he a considerable saving to the general public ami the
maxim of the greatest good lo
the greatest number will prevail. Nevertholoss publishers
will f«el pretty keenly the ne-

cessity of paying postage on
every copy sent from the office
of publication.
The Typo aud Press concludes
its remarks on the subject with
the following piece of good advice: "This payment of postage
should lead to the more strict
enforcement of the rule: 'All
Subscriptions to be Paid in Advance', and absolutely no deviations from this." Subscribers
should be made to pay up.
"Deadheads'' and "Slow-pays"
may add two or three hundred
to the "circulation," but they
add nothing, or very little, to
the general value of that circulation to the advertiser. They
do add to the expense bills of
the office, and the gray hairs of
the proprietor.
Now is the time for every publisher to frame and advertise
his policy. Begin now and clear
up the list before January 1st.
Weed out those friends of "long
ago," who have'nt called for 2,
3, 4, 5, years. Sacrifice them as
an offering to tho postage-god
Mulock."
The PHOSPECTOH says
"Amen."

j   MINES AND Ml NINO
There is a vast quantity of
useful antl valuable minerals in
the Port Steele district, which
are so   profusedly       „
above the water level, at least so
far as  thc  general production
of mineral is concerned.
*   *   ■+
Hut few properties iu the district have reached a depth as to
require the use of machinery for
drainage purposes, and but few
of the great silver-letid properties are  troubled   wilii   water.
Tlio majority of lhe mines are.
(Indued by natural means.
r,    tt    *
This circunislttiicc renders
mining in this dlstricl comparatively easy and cheap, and it
simplilies it so muoh us to enable
men who are not practical mln-
benefit the whole country as well
as the Canadian Pacific railway,
to whose influence last year the
defeat of the bill was due.    But
il must be borne in mind that a
great deal has already been done
to protect the interest of   the
Canadian railway and Canadian
trade.    The tariff gives a decided advantage to the Canadian
manufacturer and  trader,   and
the Canadian Pacific railway is
subsidized with money and land,
and enjoys other special and valuable privileges.    To say that
besides this we should adopt a
policy excluding other railways
in that district, and prevent a
company from building a railway with its own money without
any favors or privileges of any
kind, seems to us to pass the
bounds   of reason and justice.
No inatter where the money for
the railroad comes from, it must
to a large extent be a Canadian
enterprise,  involving considerable expenditures in Canada, and
providing   additional    railway
facilities for a large and important district of Canada.
'The questiou is really not so
much one of the rights of Mr.
Corbin and his associates as
against the C. P. R., as of the
rights tmd interest of the people
j of the territory lo be served. It
I is they who ought to be consult-
would perhaps
be bettor if the matter had boen
finally decided in the British
Columbia legislature. But if
the question comes before the
Dominion parliament it must be
decided, and we think it would
be adopting a very dangoroiig
and unjustifiable course to for-
iDuiHuin um.

SATUUDAY, NOVEMBER 12, 1808.
AS OTHER PEOPLE SEE US.
The Sullivan Group Has Sixty-five
Feet of Clean Galena In a 100
Foot Ledge.
F. P. Hogan, W. M. Ridpath
and Judge R. 13. Blake, all large
stockholders in th* Sullivan
Group Mining Company, operating the properties of that name
iu tho Port Steelo district, returned yesterday from a visit to
the mine. They found the journey an easier one than on former
occasions as tho new Crow's Nest
Pass railway is carrying passengers in luxury'into camps formerly reached only Iiy slow stage
coaches or steamboat on a stream
whoso reputation for safety i.s
not first class, The road runs
from Crunbrook to Kushottook
and tho latter point is readily
reached by steamer from Nelson.
Tho gentlemen are highly
pleased with lho showing on the
Sullivan and they bring news of
a new lind on the proporty which
is richer than any ore yet discovered. Its exact value however, is not yet determined.
"Wo inspected the property
with a view to introducing now
machinery which has been ordered for the equipment of the
mine," said Mr. Hogan last evening, "We were greatly pleasod
with tho result of development
of the Sullivan group. Wo have
opened up a voin HID feet wide
between walls and in it we have
li", feet of clean galena, lu a
crosscut on this ore body wo
have obtained an average assay
of 1(570 in silver and lead.
A I,ATK STIUKI3,
"lint the best news we bring
down from the camp is lhat in a
test pit sunk on the ledgo at a
point about 100 feet north of the
shaft we have encountered
galena of higher grade than any
hitherto found on the claim. Wo
brouglii samples to the Le Roi
smelter for assaying, and the result will be known tomorrow. It
is plain to the eye that the values
are higher than any othor ore
we have found. The strike also
demonstrates the continuity of
the ledge.
''We have a road built connecting the mine with the North
Star road and over this the new
machinery will bo taken in. The
plant will be sufficient for development purposes for some time
to come and will consist of a 25
horse power boiler, hoist and
pump.
"The tirst work done will bo
to sink the shaft which is now
down -10 foet to the -JOO-foot level
from which point the lodge will
be crosscut. Tho shaft is full
of water and the work- cannot
begin until the machinery is installed. Il is ou the way from
Monl real.
Pj, C. Smith is superintendent
of the property and has 10 mon
employed.
"It is presumed that a railroad
will be built to the camp in tho
spring from Cranbrook, 17 miles
away, on tho line of the Crow's
Nest railway. This line has
been surveyed and will run within a mile of lho mine.
"The camp is nourishing. The
North Star Company has about
80 men employed in development,
work, which is lo be extensively
undertaken during tlie winter."

The North Pacific Squadron About
to Sail.
Victoria, H. C, Nov, 5,—Tho
Imperieiise, the llagshlp of the
British North Pacific squadron,
is expected to snil tomorrow,
following the Amphion southward,
A rush order for 10 Ions of
provisions was placed with one
of the leading merchants today.
Tho Imperieiise will sail under
sealed orders, not to be opened
until the vessel is out of sight of
laud, Tho Amphion took on
board one of the fastest torpedo
boats on the station, and the
Leander now in drydock, has
also taken one on board. This
is tlie first time this has been
done in three yoars.
When the Leander comes out
of the drydock it is believed she
will also go south. The torpedo
boat destroyer Sparrow Hawk,
now a long time out of commission, will be recommissioned at
once. The torpedo boat destroyer Dirigo is provisioned and
coaled, and it is thought will accompany the llagshlp.

ment has been kept buck by the

Ottawa, Oct. (Jth.—While the

the Mail & Empire aud si.une of
its minor echoes, over what it is
pleased lo call, -'the Crow's Nest
Puss railway 'deal'," has very
little effect upon the public mind,
other than to nauseate it, it i.s

the arrangement now in force

WHY .Nor GIVE TIIK  FACTS,
[f tho opposition organ would
only drop its romancing and remind the public of a few facts in
connection with this matter, they
might begin by calling attention
to tho fact that the proposition
initialed Iiy the Hon. Mr. Hlair,
und now being carried out, calls
for a subsidy of !|!11,000 a mile,
while lhe previous arrangement,
which Sir Charles Tupper was
on the point, of closing when the
geuerul elections intervened,
called for what was equivalent
to $25,000 a mile subsidy. They
might also point out that before
tlie 0. P. R. could obtain the
contract and the subsidy, they
had to grant  reductions in the
freight   rules,    whicli    even    in
iheir partial operation, will save
lo the farmers of tho Northwest
ul least §800,000 on this year's
crops, und that this will be
doubled next year, while, with
the increasing output, at least
§1,000,000 will, in the course of
a year or two, be saved annually
to the country. They mightalso
mention that the running monopoly, which in the case of the
main line has so hampered the
west, has been done away with
over the new road, and that already a charter has been grunted
for an opposition line into the
Kootenay by way of the famous
Pass. If they have room they
might add that a maximum
price has been placed upon lhe
coal to be mined in that district
so that the smelting operations,
which will be of paramount and
increasing importance as time
goes on, will be amply protected
from syndicate and combine extortions.
Till*; HARVEST OCTLOOKE
Sir William Van Home, Presidont of tint C. P. 11., has jusl returned to Montroil after his annual tour of inspection over lhe
system, going west, Iiy the main
line, ami returning by the Crow's
N'usl Pass. Pew men are In a bet*
ter position to give reliable information upon the outlook, and
it is therefore very satisfactory
lo hoar the harvest prospects
spoken of so optimistically. Ile
is reported to have declared
that '"tho country  everywhere
Besides the splendid outcome
of the harvest. Sir William calls
attention to the magnitude of
the ocean trade'that has been
built up on the Canadian Pacific
coast, and at Vancouver especially, an example of which he
gives in the number of ocean
vessels loading in the harbor on
the day of his arrival in Vancouver, October 13th. The list included six vessels for Australia,
four for China and Japan, two
for South America, and two for
Africa; besides which there was
quite a lleet of coasting vessels
and others doing a local trade.
With a harbor on the Pacific
coast capable of being made
equal to any harbor in the world,
and with the capacity of Montreal harbor in the East, made
sufficient for tho largest ocean
boats, tbe merchant marine of
Canada, already fourth among
the nations, will rapidly climb
higher in the scale.
IMPERIAL PARTY   PATRIOTISM
Amid the anxiety and suspense
with which the nations are
watching the diplomatic struggle
between England and Prance,
much interest attaches, at least
in the eyes of the British, to the
attitude of the leaders of the Im
perial Opposition, Lord Rose
berry the lute premier, and Mr
Henry Asquith, the Home Sec
retary of his Government, and
others scarcely less prominent,
have gone out of their way to
publicly declare their entire sup
port and unqualified approval of
the policy of the Government,
against whom under ordinary
conditions they would be so bitterly opposed. His a magnificent, instance of tho high standard to which Imperial politicians
have attained, and should bo an
object lesson to partymen of all
shades on this side ot the Atlantic, when they are tempted, as
unfortunately is too often tbo
case, to throw aside all patriotic
considerations, either in homo
mallei's or In the presence of a
common opponent, if thereby
they can seize a momentary ad-
vantage for their parly.

It is generally understood that
instructions have been issued lo
the Dominion officials at Dawson
that on no considerations musi
they, either directly or indirectly, become interested in grabbing claims or in any other way
conducting themselves in an improper manner; attending strictly to the duties of their office.
Doing otherwise will result in
their immediate dismissal by the

According to the Boston Herald Mr. Kipling's poem on the
truce of the bear "is a heavy setback to his reputation for good

"thinking people" seems to mean
the Bostou Herald, tbe New-
York Evening Post and the
American Peace Society. These
cannot abide a muse that does

Vancouver—The rumor was
still in circulation around town
that the Great Northern railway
would buy the site of the Hastings Mills for their terminus in Vancouver, but P. J.
Wheeler, the agent for this
Province, said to a reporter that
he know nothing at all about it
and would not discuss the matter
further. There is no doubt about
it, that the Great Northern has
for years wished to obtain afoot-
hold in Vancouver, but their
trouble has been to secure a good
point on the inlet from which to
conduct shipping; and the fact
that Mr. Sheasgreen was accompanied by the company's wharf
building superintendent is a significant one.

Late statistics show that the
sums set apart for war purposes
by the five groat and three lesser
powers of Europe amount collectively to $691,415,859. For
British India the sum is $116, -
637,288, making a grand total of
$80H,053,1*17 per annum. Calculating the charge per head it is
found that England pays Htll. 21;
Germany, $2.70; Franco, $2.21;
Spain $2.12; Austria, $2.08; Italy
$1.40; Russia $1.17, and Turkey,
83 cents. These figures however, give a misleading impression of the relative burden of
war expenditure. The average
inhabitant of England, for instance, on account of the amount
and distribution of wealth and the
ordinary means of earning revenue, does not begin to foel his
annual contribution of $3.21 as
does the Spaniard his payment
of $2,12, tho Russian' of $1.17 or
the Turk of only 83 cents, It is
probable, also, that the burden
to tlie German of his $2,70 is not
heavier than that of $2.21 to tho
Frenchman, while we know that
tho modest $1,40 of the Italian
was ono of the things that provoked the terrible riots of last
spring. 'I'he per capita charge

Heir to Italy's Throne.
The birth of a son to Prince
Emanuel, Duke of Aosta, eldest
nephew of the King of Italy, was
a very important event for the
house of Savoy, as, unless a
change of circumstances occurs
he will sit on the throne of Italy.
It has beeu asserted that the
crown prince, Vittorio Emanuel,
prince of Naples, who was married on October 28th, 1884, to
Princess Helen of Montenegro,
may never have issue, and as the
duke and duchess of Aosta were
married, relatively a long time
without children, the enemies of
the house of Savoy, especially
the clericals, diligently spread
the idea that the absence of a
direct heir after the prince of
Naples was a result of the curse
of God for the usurpation of the
papal states.

in the royal family of Italy, and
