NELSON":  WEDNESDAY MORNTNG SEPTEMBER 20  1900  PRICE FIVE CENTS  '._s  *)  STRIKE  STILL  SPREADINC  More Oollories Forced to Close.  |i Shenandoah, Pennsylvania. Sep-  I. tember 25.���The few .developments  in the striking situation here, since  yesterday, were favorable to the  strikers. Three additional colleries  were closed today in this region,  because the number of men who reported for duty was not sufficient  to operate them. In this city but  one colliery it working. That is  the Cambridge which has its full  complement nf men. Other col-  leiies in the region still in  operatian are the Bast at  Ash hind . Potts and Locust Pale,  Locust Spring, at Locust, and the  North Franklin at Treverton. The  Bast colliery is said to be short-  handed. The English-speaking mine  workers of thisr borough today  formed a branch of the United  Mine Workers, ami 250 men are said  to have joined the union. The  troops today had nothing to occupy  their time, but guard duty, practice  marches and regimental parades.  Hazelton, Pennsj'lvauia, September 25. ��� lt was learned tonight that  sheriff Harvey of this (Lucerne)  county has telegraphed to governor  Stone, asking that troops be sent to  this county on the ground that he  can not guarantee the safety of  persons or property during the  night inarches of the strikers. The  governor, it is understood, is considering the matter. lt was also  learned that the sheriff's request  was backed up by several telegrams  from private citizens of Hazelton,  who it is said are mine operators.  It i.s believed that the sheriff is of  the opinion that the presence of  troops will provent any further  marching, lessening the possibility  of serious trouble. Last night's  march of 300 men from Cranberry,  Tomhicken, Deringer and (rowan"  probably hastened the action of  the sheriff in asking for state help.  The strikers met after midnight  at Cranberry. a��ol when they  reached Tomhicken they were  stopped by sheriff Harvey and  J.0 armed deputies, who went there  oii a special train. The sheriff read  the riot net to them, The strikers  scattered in different directions and  began missionary work in preventing mine workers from going to the  Potts mines. They were successful  in preventing a large number of  men goiug to work, and in consequence the Deringer and Cowan  mines were crippled. The Tomhicken slope was only slightly affected. Four of the marchers were  arrested, charged with breach of  the peace, and were taken to South  Wilkesbarre and committed without bail.  I^,hone Trescott, a coal and iron  policeman, says he saw president  Mitchell and "mother" Jones on a  hill at Deringer, directing the  movements of the men. President  Mitchell denies this, ft was rumored that another inarch  was  to  "be made tomorrow to Black Creek,  three miles from Hazelton. The  most important developments of  the day, outside of the request for  soldiers, was the answer of G. B.  Markle &��� Company to the demands  presented by the liriu's employees  - a few days ago. The answer is not  considered satisfactory by many of  the Markle . employees, and what  action they will take at their meeting tomorrow ��� is not certain.  There, is much talk among them  tonight in favor of a strike.  The firm refuses to grant the  demand of the men for a live and  ten per cent ad vance; announces its  .willingness to pay the men semimonthly; agrees to arbitrate the  question of cheaper powder, refuses the demands of the driver  boys and engineers for more pay;  promises to adjust grievances relating to the carrying of men and  tools down through the slope in  mine cars; offers the timber men a  new seale for  propping which is  . lower than the rate asked for;  agrees to build some powder houses  so that the men will nothave to  carry the powder. The Markle  firm tonight announced that at the  request of the mine workers in  its employ, work would be suspended tomorrow in order to give  the men an opportunity to consider  the company's answer to the demands made ten days ago.  Confessed to Murder.  Hamilton, \ September 25.���  George Pearson, the companion of  Annie Griffin, who was instantly  killed last night while driving from  Watertown, confessed to the murder and is lodged in jail.   Pearson  at first said that two men driving  past .in a rig had done the deed.  In being closely questioned by the  police he broke down and said that  the girl and he had made up their  minds to kill themselves, and he  shot her and then attempted suicide, but his nerve failed him.  THE TAX SALE PURCHASERS  Looking: After Tlieir Property.  The ollice of the Nelson  government agent has been visited during  the past few days by a  number of  parties desiring information regarding the lots purchased by  them  at  auction   iu  September,   1898.     At  that time .Tohn Keen, assessor and  collector of taxes, sold a number of  lots by  public auction  to  recover  taxes unpaid by the parties holding  thoni  from   the government.   The  stipulation to purchasers was  that  if the original owners offered within two years to pay the arrears  of  taxes and costs incurred the property should revert to them and the  purchasers would be refunded their  money   with   interest.      The two  years specified lias elapsed and  the  citizens who invested  their money  are   moving  to  secure  the  crown  grants promised.    There seems to  be a   hitch  in   the  arrangements,  however, and no titles have "been  issued to date.    Tt is said  that  tho  point has arisen as to the collector's  right to sell the lots for taxes inasmuch as the properties were not  crown   granted    to    the   original  owners but were only  held  on  an  agreement to purchase.   Several of  the parcels were disposed  of at a  decided bargain, and if the matter  is smoothed out several citizens will  miiko neat turnovers.  One of the parties interested went  to Kaslo yesterday to consult Mi-.  Keen about the matter.  Must Use Hard Coal.  New York, September 25.���President Murphy of the board of  health said last night that there  would be no relaxation of the rules  agaiust using soft'eosM in, this city  on account of the strike in the  anthracite mining region. Mr. Murphy said that the law was on the  statute books, was absolute in its  terms, made no provision for  emergencies, of the present  kind and would have to bo  observed. He added, moreover, that in his opinion the  emergency was not as grave as certain people that wanted to burn  soft coal here represented it to be.  Though the supply of anthracite on  hand was ample i'or New York's  consumption for some time to come  the mere fact that those who hold  this coal had raised the price somewhat, did not, iu his mind, furnish  auy adequate reason for violating  the law against the burning of soft  coal or allowing the health of the  public to be endangered by the  smoke nuisance.   EritislrCaptureDainaged Guns.  Capetown, September 25.���A  large number of gnus, mostly damaged, have beon found along the  Crocodile river, especially near  Hectorsprnit. Practically tho whole  of the Republican railway stocks  have been captured on the Selate  line. There are eight miles of  vehicles, the majority being in good  condition.  ���   The Prince Engages Sloan.  London, .September 25.���As a  culmination of the ascendancy of  American jockeys it is announced  today that the prince of Wales has  engaged Tod Sloan at a larger retainer for J901. Many horse owners  who have hitherto hesitated to  desert the home talent will doubtless follow the royal lead.  Michael Defeats Fierce.  Hartford, Connecticut, September 25.���-The twenty mile paced  race between Jimmy Michael and  Burns Pierce, was won by Michael  by-six laps. Michael's time for the  first five miles was 8:29f; twenty  miles 34:10 4-5. Pierce's time for  the twenty miles was 35:29.  Texas Towns Are Safe.  Houston, Texas, September 25.���  The reports from Austin, that the  towns of San Saba and Marble Palls  were swept away by the Colorado  river Hood, are without foundation.  The river at Austin is now falling  and no damage has been done there.  Another Death in Glasgow.  Glasgow, Soptember 25.���This  evening another death from bubonic  plague was reported,  NELSON MINES AND MINING  London Consolidated Shipments.  Henry Roy of Rossland, general  manager of the Londou Consolidated and Richelieu properties, was  in the city yesterday.1 The compauy is arranging to contract^ for  the shipment of 5000 tons of high  grade ore during the winler, and  local men arefigiuiug on the work.  The tenders will be called for as  i ���  soon as the wagon road up Crawford creek is sufficiently advanced  to enable teamsters to size up its  teaming capacity. The first snow-  has fallen at the mine, but this is  expected to go off in a few days.  It is understood that the Jackpot  group on Forty-nine creek has been  transferred to the British Columbia  representative of an American syndicate, .now operating in the Ainsworth camp. The group is owned  and is now being worked by Swed-  berg and Johnston. The report  from the property," which includes  five claims, is that the showing is  unusually fine. On one six-foot  lead, clearly defined, auy specimen  of, ore will pan out colors. Another  very large body of low grade ore is  also uncovered.  The NationaLGold & Silver Mining Company of this city is preparing to place a large block of stock  on the market for the purpose of  raising funds to crown grant the  Ajax group at Ymir. The claims  include the Ajaxj Lookout Fractional and Gold Drop Fractional.  Considerable work has been done  on the property, but its special  claim to merit is as yet based ou  the theory that the Tamarac - lead  passes through the group.  A crew of men is at work in the  Venus mine on development. Tho  company has outlined a comprehensive line of action which will be  followed up during tho winter. No  effort.will be made to "take out ore,  the present supply on the dumps  "and in the ore bins being ample to  keep a mill running for several  weeks. A fourth tunnel opening on,  the hill near the mill is projected.  The foundations for the cyanide  building at the Athabasca mine are  about ready for the superstructure.  Considerable difficulty was encountered for a time in securing solid  ground, but this has been overcome  by erecting heavy walls, and the  future progress of the building will  be rapid. "E. Nelson Fell, manager  of the Athabasca, was in the city  yesterday.         W. F. Borland of Montreal, vice-  president of the company which  has bonded the Juno group, arrived  in the citj' yesterday and visited  the property with M. S. Logan,  managing director, and Charles  Parker, the company's eugineer.  Mr. Borland expressed himself as  vei'ymuclrpleasedwitlrthe outlook  at the Juno, and states that his  company will lose no time in demonstrating the merits of the proposition. The party will spend today on the ground and will outline  a plan of development. It is probable that one of the 'principal  features will be a tunnel from a few  feet above the point where the  Juno joins the Venus group, to  crosscut the lead at a vertical depth  of about 300 feet.  Charles Dundee returned from  Ymir last night and confirmed the  report of the strike on the Dundee.  The fire which destroyed the concentrator on the property burned  off the timber and brush, and float  was discovered indicating a ledge  on a portion of the property which  had not been'prospected. A few  hours' search disclosed the mineral,  and further investigation proved  the find to be very important. The  ledge parallels the lead on which  work has been done, and promises  to be equally good. It has been'  traced on the surface for 1050 feet.  A tunnel has been started and is  now in 60 feet, the entire tunnel  being in free milling ore. The  width of the lead will be determined later by crosscutting.  D. D. Birks of Lardo was in the  city yesterday en route home after  a visit to Rossland. Mr. Birks is  operating the Great Britain group  on the divide between Cooper and  Meadow creeks, one of the very few  properties now working in the district. He has been successful in interesting capital in the London  group, adjoining the Great Britain,  and will start work shortly.   The  properties are , silver-lead propositions, carrying gold and copper.  The outlook" 'on both is most encouraging. .'  The Tribune was in error  iu" stating -that the tool and  timber tramway about to be  erected .by B. C. Ribbet at the St.  Eugene would be the first iu the  province.' There is a tool and timber tramway,,900 feet long, wliich  has been in use for the past ten  months at the, Yellowstone mine.  All .the fittings, e?u\ etc., were constructed at-the,Yellowstone.  AMONG BRITISH POLITICIANS  Chamberlain, on the Stump.  London, -September 2��>.���Joseph  Chamberlain,, secretary of state  for the colonies, has arranged to  deliver eleven speeches in ten days  in the parliamentary election campaign. ^All-the leaders on both  sides are under- similar heavy engagements.-"'At present there is a  slight slackening of, confidence ou  the governmentjside, and a revival  of hope on the Liberal and Radical  side that the re$ult at any rate will  not be quite ,d walkover for the  Conservatives, j., Lord Salisbury's  manifesto is 1 considered rather  weak ; and .Mr; Chainberlain's characterization ofi the opponents of  the war as traitors is considered  tactless. Moreover many Conservatives, fear that there will be an inclination to, retain iu the cabinet  the marquis oi. Lansdowne, secretary of state for war,' and other  ministers in whom the public has  lost confidence. These are among  the chief i;ea%ons that have produced a, change of feeling.  ���  Mr. Goschen is said to be fully resolved to relinquish his post at the  admiralty; bift.-he announces ,this  morning, through the Daily Mail,  that his retirement is hi no way  due to any differences with his colleagues, with whom he says he has  not ceased to be in entire accord.. .  .'- Herbert-Gladstone, speaking last  nighty at .i.ggdjj.^lj.inted that rjord'  Salisbury would'retire after the-  elections, and that sir Michael Hicks-  Beach would relinquish the chancellorship of the exchequer. Other  speeches yesterday were made by  Mr. Chamberlain at Oldham ; Mr.  Balfour at Manchester; sir William  Vernon Harcourt at Ebbervale ; and  George Wyndham, parliament  under-secretary of state for war,at  1 )over.  Air. Chamberlain's attack on the  so-called Liberal-Imperialists says  that not a single one of them had  over uttered a word to help the  government, or to show Mr. Kruger  that the country was united in its  demands. He said he supposed they  had now-come ont. to protect the  baggage, and he asserted solemnly  that there were people in ��� England  upon whom the guilt of the Avar  fell as heavily as upon Mr. Kruger.  Sir William Vemon Harcourt  -1 wi tted"M r.Chamberlai nwi thbeing"  for the first time without a programme, declaring that the colonial  secretary had gone out of the secret  promise business and taken up the  pursuit of war. ' ;  " Mr. Wyndham referred to the  fact that the government was  spending ��7,000,000 .on coast de:  fence, whicli would take two years  to complete,-He said it would be  dangerous to return the;Liberals to  power as thoy had always neglected  such work. The Northampton  Liberals havo invited Henry  Labouchoreto stand for re-election.  A Big Railway Blast.  Pueblo, Colorado, September 25.  ���A special to tho Chieftain from  Texas Creek, Colorado, where  Ormau & Crook are making the  grade for the Rio Grande branch to  Silver Cliff, says: At 4 o'clock one  of the largest shots ever used in  railroad construction was fired in  Texas Creek. There were 640 kegs  of blasting powder used, besides  a quantity of giant powder,  which, altogether, dislodged nearly";  20,000 cubic yards of rock. Tiie  blast was pronounced a thorough  success. All trains on the main  line were stopped by signal several  miles each side, of the canyon, and  all the live stock in the camp were  removed to a safe distance. Contrary to expectations, the.report  was not heavy, although the shock  was felt plainly on the surrounding  mountain sides. Quite a party  from Pueblo and other points had  arrived to view the spectacle, which  was magnificent. No injuries resulted, though a shower of small  stones.which followed the explosion  covered a radius of a half mile.  LOCAL C. P. R. IMPROVEMENTS  Tenders Asked for Freight Sheds.  Johu Hepburn is expected to  commence work at once on the  C. P. R. passenger depot. His contract with the company calls for  the completion of the building in  three months, so that the station  will be ready for Christmas day.  The stone used in the consti notion  of the first story and a half will be  gray granite, the smoke and coal  dust' from locomotives precluding  the use of white stone.  The Ci. P. R. engineering1, department will call for tenders today for  the construction of the new freight  sheds at the depot. The building  is to be of frame 200x40, neatly  finished. " Outside of three offices  for the clerical staff and the customs' sufferance warehouse, the entire building will be utilized for  handling freight. The new premises will be approximately three  times the 9ize of the present shed,  which is only 100x30, and much too  small for the volume of freight now  handled at Nelson. The new building will  be completed  before  the  passenger depot.   . i  W. P. Tierney & Co. sent a gang  of 40 men, under A. McPhail, to  Farron, on the Columbia & Western yesterday, to construct the  sidetracks at that point, which has  been established as a rogular  station.    * The big steam shovel which has  been working in the C. P. R. yard  for a couple of weeks has been  shut down, and the work train attending it transferred to Slocan  Junction. Two Avorktrains are  now with the steanr shovel there,  and the fills aro being completed  rapidly.'      No Inducement to Miners.  Nkw Yokk, September 23.���  George ��� H.' Moulton of Colorado,  United States consul to; Deinarara,  British"Guiana, has arrived in' NeAV  York; beiug on leave of absence.  In discussing affairs in British  Guiana Mr.". Moulton said: The  rush to tho" gold fields of British  Guiana and Venezuela which Avas  expected to follow the settlement'  of the Venezuelan boundary dis-  puts, failed to materialize. The  new boundary fixed by the arbitration court is quietly accepted by  the people of Venezuela and  no further dispute is -likely to  arise. Gold mining still goes  in the fields. The yield of  these gold fields is about $2,000,-  000 a year. All the gold obtained  is secured by placer mining. Mining  is - attended by great difficulties,  and there is some danger to life.  The gold fields are all at some distance in the interior. To reach  them the miners have to travel  through swamp lands and dense  brush which are infested by alli-  gatorsrenormoifs "reptileTTand wild"  beasts. Everything the miners  carry along has to be packed by  men. British Guiana is no place  for American miners. They can do  better.in Colorado or Montana."  ther complicated the gas war here  by filing a bill iu the United States  ��jurt asking for an njunetion restraining the People's Gas Company  from selling gas at 40 cents per 1000  feet.    BRITAIN IS FOR VENGEANCE  U. S. TROOPS WITHDRAWN  Reduced- to a Legation Guard.  An Evening Reception.  ' Candidate MacNeill attended a  called meeting of the local'Conservative association last night. President Irvine was in the chair. The  delegates who attended the ��� Revelstoke convention gave an account  of their stewardship, which Avas  accepted. AfterAvards informal  speeches were made as to the best  way to conduct the campaign, so as  to bring the candidate in under the  wire a good length ahead of the  stahvart entry of the Liberals, It  was decided that the chairman call  a public meeting of-the party at an  early date, and organize according  to Hoyle. The meeting will probably be held in the opera house.  Mr. MacNeill intends going to Kaslo  on tonight's boat.  May Retain Their lUnderclothes.  Victor, Colorado, September .25.  ���The employees at Stratton's Independence mine, Avho struck yesterday against an order requiring  them" to strip in the presence of  watchmen before leaving the miue,  in order to stop the alleged pilfering of valuable ore, resumed Avork  today on the modification of the  order to the extent of allowing the  men to keep on their underclothing.  Chicago's Gas War.  Chicago, September 25.���Nathan  George, a Connecticut man, owning  one bundled shares of stock in the  People's Gas Corapans', today fur-  Government Policy Not Popular.  London, .September 26.���Only  through the Associated Press advices from New York, published in  this morning's papers, does the  British public learn that the  United- States aud Great Britain  are once again ranged together  against fche continental powers.  Apparently such a grouping Avas  entirely unexpected in both Berlin  and ���London, ��� and until an  official statement is made comment will be Avithheld. The  Daily Chronicle, however, . devotes a brief editorial paragraph to  the announcement, expressing a  hope that it is erroneous, and declaring that the "only way in which  England can reap the fruits of her  exertions in China.is by standing  shoulder to shoulder with Germany  and Japan. The " only effective  counterpoise to the Russia-French  machinations, and the weak-kneed  policy of America."  Meanwhile the news from China  indicates that events are rapidly'  drifting in the direction of Ava'i betweeu China and Germany. There  is the best reason for believing, says  tho Shang-Hai correspondent to the  Morning Post, that". count Aron  Waldersee on arriving at Taku, Avill  present au ultimatum demanding  the surrender of the anti-foreign  rising. After a few * hours grace  he will formally declare Avar, and  taking advantage of Germany's  position as a belligerent, he will  proceed to seize everything available with the German forces and  fleet."  It is expected that Germany AVilh  take the Wu Sung Forts and Kiang:  arsenal,- thus dominating Shang-  Hai. It is also believed she will  attack the_Kiang fort's of the Yang  Tsu from the landside,'and' endea-,'  vor to seize the Chinese fleet, in-;  eluding the valuable' uoav cruisers.  Failing this she will at least occupy  all the province of Kiang Su, north  of' tho Yang Tso' Kiang. Tho  French Avill support Germany.  This is not rumor but reliable information and Avill probably be  confirmed at the foreign office.  Prompt action is necessary to prevent a coup which Avould constitute  a menace to British interests.  Russia has handed over the  Taku-Pekin railway to Germany.  The Shang-Hai correspondent of  the Standard, telegraphing Monday,  says : "Chinese officials report that  prince Tuan has issued a secret  edict, in the name of the empress  dowager, to the effect that the  imperial court has decided to continue the Avar against tho powers at  whatever cost"TJie"edict threatens  that any official failing to support  the Manchus will be beheaded as a  traitor, his whole family executed  and the tombs of his ancestors demolished.  London, September 26.���The  Times, in an editorial on China's  non-repentant mood, . refers to  Great Britain's reply in the same  tone as the Daily Chronicle, and  says: "The country Avould be both  astonished aiid shocked if our government did not warmly support  tho German proposal. It i.s simply  inconceivable that the British, of  all governments, should refuse to  accede to a proposal at onco so  reasonable and just."  St. Petersburg, September 25.���  The war office announces that general Sacharoff, the chief the Russian  genoral staff, captured Chu Lai  Chen, near the Sungari river, on  September 12th, putting to flight  5,000 Chinese. It is added that the  Russians sustained no casualties.  The Sungari river of Manchuria  rises near the frontier of Corea,  floAVS north and northeast and joins  the Amur or Saghalin river, 135  miles southeast of the influx of the  Oosooree.  Paris, September 25.���The Temps  this evening publishes a dispatch  from Shang-Hai, Avhich says the  missionaries in China are threatened, European troops having  been sent against the Boxors.  Prince Ching, it i.s also stated, has  protested that tho yamen alone is  qualified to carry out the Boxers'  extermination as ordered by it. Li  Hung Chang, the cable message  concludes, has arrived at Pekiu, and  is negotiating for the return there  of the emperor.  Washington, September 25.���The \  United States today took the first '  step towards the redemption of its V  pledge made to the Russian govern-"'  ment   on   August   28th   last;   hy^cl  cabling    instructions    to   general  Chaffee   to reduce the"'American -  forces in China to the" proportions,  of a legation guard. Nearly a month" r~|  ago the Russian government ���wa_   ��?  told, through M.

Much thought  has been given to the'proper number     of    troops    to   be   allotted  for   this   purpose,   and   it   is   believed   1400 men   selected   will   be  quite    sufficient    to    protect, the,  American legation��� against���=any���=  force that could be brought against  it. It is noteworthy, too, that the  most complete arrangements have  been ordered for the'maintenance  of the men, while .care has been  taken that there shall not be a  shortage of aminhnition, as * there  AA'as in the British "legation during  the.siege. It is estimated that  about a' week will bo required lo  bring the 3500 soldiers away from  Pekin, bnt the start cannot be made  immediately^ and if will beat least  at tlio end of the first week in October before the movement can ba  completed.

Lieutenant. Hobson's celebrated  interview, in Avhich- be said that  Dewey didn't do it, has caused  quite a ripple in the ...United States.  Hobson is iioav. out with a correction. He says he was misquoted.  He did not mean to say thatPeAvey  was not entitled to the credit for  the sinking of the Spanish ships in  Manila bay. He now says that the  ships weie sunk by the Spaniards  because Dewey forced them to  do so,           The ex-organ of the mine owners'  associations and transient pedlers,  and present organ of the tax-evading Chinese, state.s that candidate  MacNeill has the support of all the  daily papers published in Yale-  Cariboo constituency. Yes; and it  ia just possible he has the support  of one or two dailies Avhose support  will do him more harm than  good.  The Tribune has always been a  free aud independent newspaper,  and 'will continue to be free and  independent as long as it is under  the management of its present  owners. In the coining campaign  it will "treat all candidates fairly in  both its news and editorial columns, and will take great pleasure  in showing up the shortcomings  and inconsistencies of ..both the  Grit and the Tory, parties and the  men who shape their policies. This  may not suit the politicn.ns and  party managers, but it suits the  men who "pay the pipers."  BOUNDARY   MINING   NOTES.  The Golden Ragle, which made a  trial shipment to ' the Granby  smelter some.weeks ago, has made  such a good showing that the management lias decided to send doAvn  considerable more ore. Four additional cars of fine quartz have  been sent doAvn and it is thought a  couple of hundred tons more will be  shipped before many weeks.  A meeting of the Pathfinder company is called for Monday, October  loth, for the purpose of considering  a proposition to sell all or part of  the assets of the company. It is  understood that the last AA'ork done  on the property required considerable advances, and if the deal for a  sale, which is reported to be on foot  does not go through, some arrangements aviII be made at the. meeting  to secure the creditors of the company and proceed Avith operations.  High  milk. Tho milk dealers would  ��� probably prefer that the city had  not taken the prompt action that  "lias been taken. There has been uo  impure milk sold in Nelson for  nearly a week, and none will be  sold here during the remainder of  the year 1900.  No political party that preaches  economy or retrenchment in the  expenditure of public monies voices  the true sentiments of the electorate. The people waut money expended, and the most 'popular  representative is the one that procures the largest and greatest  number of appropriations. Spend  money, but spend it judiciously,  should be the rallying cry of a  political party that wants to get in  office.        ^_     - .������ .  Candidate MacNeill has commenced the hard work of the campaign by visiting Nelson, where the  Conservative   party   is    not   only  strong in numbers, but determined  to be free from the domination  of  the men who imagine that the people of the greatest constituency in  Canada eonnot get along without  drawing' on  the granaries of gray  matter stowed  aAvay in  the heads  of Coast politicians.

Before the introduction of the  Judicature Act lawyers' bills were  much smaller and litigants had a  show for their money. But now  the chances are that if a man sues  in the higher courts and Avins he  Avill lose the amount-of the debt  and probably something more besides. He cannot form the slightest  idea as to where a suit once entered  ���will end, or what the costs will be.  There are too many appeal courts  and too many fees. A law Avhich  would wipe out half the appeals  and fix a maximum sum for costs  in a suit involving a stated sum of  money,, would be in the interests of  both, lawyers.-and litigants, for the  present high fees are .a deterrent  to litigation, many people preferring to staud a loss rather than  enter into a lawsuit rendered unduly  vexations by numerous appeals and  involving heavy expense.

FRENCH ARMY MANOEUVRES  From An American Standpoint.  Paris, September 25.���Major J.  B.MottviiHii, who represented the  United States at the recent French  manoeuvres, i.s preparing his report  to tho war department. He said  to the Associated Press today : "The  nianoeuvros proved an extremely  interesting nnd instructive study.  From several points of view the extensive use of auto-ears was a most  striking innovation, and the results  attained have fully justified the  claim for their practical utility in  Kuropean warfare. They did excellent work, enabling the generals  aud their passengers to cover great  distances in a few hours. Auto-  traction cars moreover facilitated  the task of the commissary department immensely; hauling cars  heavily laden with provisions. They  have undoubtedly eotue "to" stay.  The correspondent adds: "While  fully appreciating the service they  render to the armies of Europe,  where the highways are well built,  and the distances comparatively  short, I do not believe they would  be of sufficient value on the rough  American roads, and over-enormous  tracts of country as in the United,  States, to justify the heavy expense  of their introduction and maintenance in the American army. Our  needs differ considerably from those  of the European countries. The  . atter must always prepare for possible war on their own soil, and  THE BANK OF  BRITISH   COLUMBIA  NELSON  Is now prepared to issue Drafts and  Letters of Credit on Skaguay, U. S.,  Atlin, B. C, and Dawson City, N. W. T.  their conditions favor the use of  auto-cars, while the possibilities of  hostilities within the United States  are remote, aud their value i.s highly  problematical.  "Another feature of the man-  oeuvers which much impressed 1110  "worthe new arti 1 lery. Tlie��� latest  French cannon is undoubtedly the  most efficient weapon, and involves  a new method of working which is  a vast improvement on the old  style. The French artillerymen  know their business too, and their  prompt and effective manoeuvring,  combined with rapid serving of tho  guns, is simply admirable.  "As to the cavalry, tlieir methods  are quite different from ours.  American cavalry acts chiefly as the  eyes and ears of the main body aud  as mounted infantry. Wo consider  tnat tho days when masses of  cavalry were thrown against infantry are past. But here cavalry  charges are still considered feasible.  Another great war will alone decide whether the latter idea is  justified. One thing tho cavalry  operations brought out was the  clever horsemanship of the French  officers. They have been described  as poor riders, but all doubts on  that score were thoroughly dispelled  by the line display they made  around Charles. I came away with  a golden opinion of the infantry.  They are not merely splendid  marchers, who keep in good spirits  under trying circumstances, but  they are as independent soldiers in  supplying their own wants as any  have ever met."  Tupper's Home Coming.   _,  Toronto News.  Toronto has forgiven sir Charles  Tupper and has once more received  him into her bosom. This was  proved conclusively by the demonstration in Massey hall last evening.  Those who attended were carried  back to a certain evening in 1396,  Imperial Bank of Canada  HEAD  OFFICIO. TORONTO.

LAY, Manager.  during the stormy times which preceded the appeal to the country on  the Manitoba remedial bill. Never  will the doings of thai; evening be  forgotten. A dogged, persistent  old man faced a vast audience boiling over with resentment .and  "liostiltTfeelihg. For over an hour  he fought them, lashed them with  his tongue aud endeavored with a  perseverance that was splendid to  justify a cause that was already  lost. His words were drowned in a  tempest of those noises .which  ferocious animals are accustomed to  make and to which humanity descends when influenced mightily by  some great impulse moving to redress or prevent a threatened  wrong. The old man had his say,  though nobody but the reporters  heard him, and then with a parting  shot sat down while cries of derision  aud triumph ascended. But last  evening the scene changed. Tupper, the unpopular, had become  popular again, furnishing a valuable  illustration of how the public wrath  aroused by bad measures i.s not extended indefinitely to the men that  propose them. An audience exceeding the first in point of numbers  rose as one man to greet "Canada's  Grand Old Man," and the men who  four years ago hissed till they were  tired now cheered until their  throats grew hoarse. It was the  home coming of... Tupper, aud  Toronto made it a splendid affair,  for transcending the occasion when  the aged statesman was, figuratively  speaking, sent off in a far country.  Let Him Be Judged by His Merits.  Toronto Telegram.  There are,rights which the son of  the eminent should be conceded  just as well as the son of the obscure. One of these rights is to be  judged according to his achievements. Hon. Hugh John Macdonald is assailed as if he forfeited  all right to human consideration in  beting the son of a distinguished  premier of the Dominion. His  parentage is urged as a reason why  he should not be successful in public  life. The attacks upon Hugh John  Macdonald���personalities, calumny  and abuse���are a. disgrace to the  Liberal press of Canada. If he may  not profit from th'e -reflected glory  of his illustrious sire there is no  reason why it should obstruct his  path to political success. Hugh  John Macdonald is not what he is  today simply becauso he is hi.s  father's son. The one fact of his  being theson of sir John Macdonald  would not have developed for him  the strength which he has undoubtedly acquired. Greater men  -than-sir_John���Macdonald���lef ^offspring who lived and died in obscurity. It has, in fact, become  proverbial that the scion of the  great rarely go beyond the mediocre.  ^-M_%rr  NOTICE.  "H11.1.S oi.- Sai.k Act."
