Captain Bender's  plans, as published by Markham,  contemplate the departure of the  expedition from Vancouver with a  wooden or steel ship and a crew of  six sailors and five scientists to  enter the polar basin a month  earlier than Nansen did. The ship  would begin to drift 300 miles further east than Nansen's vessel did.  The   expedition  would  winter  Capo Town for Canada direct on  the steamship Roslyn Castle .about  the first of December. The thousand men and fifty officers referred  to must be members of the Royal  Cauadiau Dragoons, Canadian  mounted infantry aud. royal Canadian artillery.

New York, November 27.���A  great gathering of business men  responded to the call for a conference at the Chamber of Commerce  today to plan a campaign against  vice. The feature of the meeting  were the retirement of bishop  Potter from the ranks of the movement. Charles Stewart Smith presided over the meeting and G. Foster Peabody acted as secretary. A  letter was read from bishop Potter  giving his reasons for non-attendance at the meeting. The bishop  wrote: "I shall not be able, owing  to a trustee meeting, to attend the  meeting at the Chamber of Commerce today, nor, I think T ought  to add, should I do so if I were  free. The aim of such a meeting  should be primarily to unify the  forces on the side of law, decency  and the protection of the weak in  this community. The clergy may  exercise the office of rousing, warning and entreating, but in social  and political movements their best  service will bo done iu the ranks,  leaving to others the task of generalship. New York wants a  strong committee of three or five  trusted laymen to ordinate and  cement the purposes."  Chamberlain Explains. �� *  Loxoon, November 27.���Mr.  JosephJ Chamberlain, secretary of  state for the colonies, replying to  incessantly repeated accusations  that ho is a shareholder in a com-  ^anj^pi'otiting^by^gcwernment.con-^  tracts, has made the following  statement to Mr. J. M. Wanklin,  M. P. for Bradford, with the  intention of having it published:  "I hold a very small portion of the  stock of the Birmingham trust. I  do not know and never did know  anything about its investments,  which of courseare constantly changing. I did not know it had any investments in the company called  the 'Lubes Limited,' and I did not  know the company was interested  in government business. I was not  aware of these facts when I asserted  in the house of commons that I had  no interest, directly or indirectly,  in any firm supplying military  stores to the government."  A Game Fight.  Chicago, November 27.���Tommy  Ryan, who claims Chicago as his  home, defeated Kid Carter of  Brooklyn in six rounds at Tatter-  sail's tonight before a crowd of  5000 people. Ryan had the best of  the mill all the way, witli the exception of two intervals, the lirst  and second rounds, when Carter  sent him to tlie mat with right  swings. Carter was beaten fearfully about the head and face,  and although he went the limit  he fought the last three  rounds without knowing much  about what lie was doing except  that there was a man in front of him  whom he hit. He fought gamely to  the last, and his superior weight and  strength were a heavy handicap to  Ryan. The latter, however, was  too clever for Carter and got inside  ber   26th���The   war   office   states D   that 1000 men and 50 officers of the j nearly- every swing he made, and  ���Canadian   contingent    will    leave I blocked  three   out  of  every five  blows that were sent to his body.  George Siler awarded, the purse to  Ryan amid loud cheers from the  crowd, the applause being fully as  much for the game boy from  Brooklyn as for the victor.  Made a Sieve of Him.  Lake   City,  Florida, November  27. ��� Spencer   AVilliams,   a negro  gambler, was shot to pieces near  this city by a mob.    Williams, who  recently arrived here from Pensa-  cola, last night shot and dangerously wounded city marshal Strange  and William Strickland of this city.  Marshal Strange was attempting to  arrest the negro.   As soon as the  news of the shooting became known  citizens formed a posse and overtook Williams this morning in a  swamp.     Williams   was   literally  shot  to pieces.     Fully 200 bullet  holes were found in his body, which  was brought into town and placed  iu front of the court house, where  it was surrounded all the afternoon  by a crowd.  After Dewet.  Lourenzo Marques, November  27.���A detachment of 20 mounted  Portuguese troops with two guns  crossed the river this morning to  Calembo. It is reported that General Dewet is in Portuguese territory, and in that district.  LIVELY POLITICAL MEETING AT  HEVELSTOKE.  Correspondents Disagree as to Which  Candidate Was Victorious and the  Reader Can Take His Choice.  A    niFFFRFNfiF-   OF    OPINION    minister of public works.   Mr. Gal-  h  uirrcnuiuL  ur   urmiui, i ]iher had no qiiarrel Avith theLabor  party for its presence in the* contest, but claimed that its interests  could be best served by supporting  the government, which had proved  its sincerity by favorable legislation. Tie challenged McKane to  stump the mining districts witli  him.  Neither candidate impressed the  audience as favorably as did Mr.  Foley when here, who proved a  much more eloquent and forcible  speaker than are either of. his  opponents.

IN  Is Perfectly Satisfied With the Reiffs  and Thinks the English Stewards  Were Misled.  London, November 27.���Richard  Croker goes to Carlsbad in a few  days for three- months. He had a  long farewell talk touight with the  Reiffs, who sail for New York in  tho Deutehland ou Friday. Mr.  Croker has engaged both the Reiffs  and his-trainer, Wishard,-for next"  seasou. "I am satisfied that had  the Jockey Club limited its investigation to tlie running of Scotchman II," said~Mr. Croker to a representative of the Associated Press,  "it would long ago have been  settled, but having entered into the  question which lord Durham's  charges stated the steward? I think  have found that those who tried to  put up the game exposed the  weakness of their own hands to an  extent they little anticipated, and  that they unwittingly opened a  field whicli , has surprised and  chagrined them. I have just returned from Newmarket and all my  information has strengthened ray  faith in the Reiffs and Wishard. I  am perfectly willing to abide by  the result. The matter is giving  me little trouble.  "I had to laugh at the alleged in-  .teiwiews=with=me-in=the=--papers=to-  day. The idea that I am going to  France is utterly, imaginary, likewise the expressions on American  polities. I have not talked with a  correspondent except the correspondent of the Associated Press  since my arrival. Little Johnny.  Reiff is going to the United States  to attend school. He gives the  world evidence of the kind of boy  the American boy is. With all his  success on the English turf he is  not satisfied. He is preparing for  a useful life. While many jockeys  are content to spend the winter un-  profitably around the training  stables, Johnny Reiff is not willing  to limit his future to racing alone.  I think this tells the whole story of  American success on the English  turf. Education is the best medicine I know of for either horse or  rider."  Wainted to Kill Roberts.  London, November 27.���The war  office publishes the following dispatch from lord Roberts, dated  November 20th: As reports of a  plot against ray life will probably  reach you I think you should know  the facts. It is my belief that  there was a full-fledged plot in existence, and five Italians, four  Greeks and a Frenchman were arrested on November 16th, and are  now awaiting trial. Their intentions were to explode a mine under  St. Mary's church during the morning services held at 11 o'clock on  November 18th."  Toronto, November 27.���The  steamer Persia was badly damaged  at her dock last night.  up the broken pledges, corruption  and disloyalty of Tarte. He proved  and made Galliher. admit that he  signed the petition against the  eight-hour law. Galliher claimed  he was forced to sign by the Dundee Mining Company, and signed as ���  vice-president. His heart was not  in it. McKane pronounced him a  political Judas and.a traitor to the  working- men. While grasping  their hand in friendship he stabbed  them to the heart.  F. J. Deane tried to break up the  meeting, but-McKane   called him  down with a thud. - Pointing at  Deane he exclaimed : . "Mr. secretary   Chinese' Dearie you are. a  political brat; it would-be better  for you to be earning your salary  at the Chinese legation than trying  to break up political meetings in  this great riding."     This brought  down the house,' as Deane is disliked   here.     McKane also stated  that the committee to investigate  the charge against Galliher was adjourned at the request of .T. B. Me-  -Arthur,"   chairman   of the Liberal  executive- committee,   who stated  that Galliher   could not   be communicated  with,* as he (Galliher)  was in   Kelowna.     This  was unworthy of McArthur, as Galliher  .was here from 8 o'clock thi�� morning.   McKane is a-'strdngpforceful  speaker   and   it was   entirely his -  meeting.    Great cheers were given  for McKane, our next member.  The Other Story.  Revelstoke, November 2(5.���  [Special to The Tribune.] ���Tho  McKane meeting at Revelstoke to-night, though previously arranged  with the local executive committee  to be a joint meeting, resulted in  Galliher capturing it. The meeting  opened with a Liberal speaker, and  Galliher spoke before McKane.  McKane was rough on Foley, calling him a Liberal, and saying that  Wilks, Foley's lieutenant, regretted  opposing Galliher, who was" ,i good  friend to labor. Galliher challenged McKane to say what the  Conservatives had done for labor,  or what McKane had done for it,  and said that his meetings were  =fixed=to��election=daterbut=he=would-  give McKane a meeting in which to  explain his position, and he would  speak first, too.  McKane attacked Galliher for  supporting the mine owners' petition against the eight-hour law.  Galliher explained that he did not  personally do so.ashis record would  show. Although McKane asserted  he was anxious to meet him, he  would only give him five minutes  to explain. He was enthusiastically cheered. Galliher's short, forceful explanation, and the personal  attack made him lots of friends  here. The meeting' was a warm  one at the close, but decidedly a  Liberal arid Galliher one, though  called against agreement by his opponent.  And Still Another.  Rossland, November 26���[Special to the Rossland Miner].���The  second meeting of the campaign  was held here tonight by John McKane. The audience was not largo  and entirely lacked enthusiasm;  two features which characterized  the previous occasion when Chris  Foley addressed electors here. Mr.  McKane said his party in making  him its standard bearer was influenced very largely by the fact that  he was heavily interested in mining in the various camps of the  country. He objected to Mr. Foley  as an extremist to whom no attention should be paid by Conservative workingmen, whose allegiance  was due to the Conservative party  for its national policy.  W. A. Galliher was also present.  He was assisted by Hon. James  Ross bf the Northwest Territories,  generals in South Africa. He  added: "If Roberts were taken  but of command in South Africa  the English army would mutiny tomorrow. They love him, but they  hate Africa. The man most hated  in South Africa hy the Boers is  Kitchener. There is not a man in  the Boer army who would not shoot  him on sight. He is the man who  butchered the Negros and he would  not serve them much better."  NELSON MINES AND MINING  THE WEST FORK  COUNTRY AND  ITS PROGRESS.  Chapleau Officials Return to France-  . The Exchequer Deal Not Consummated���Other Mining Matters.  present  as was  goveru-  West-  not  J. A. Tuzo, a well-known  mining  man operating on' the .west fork of  the Kettle- river near Beaverton,  was in the city yesterday and gives  some    interesting   details   of  the  country.    "The section;"   he says,-  "is practically new, but it is sure to  become- a- - busy . mining ���--* center.'  The   progress   during the  year was   not as  marked  hoped, largely because the  ment   "wagon    road    from  bridge   to    Beaverton     was  completed and packing by horses is  the only means of access at present-  to   the heart   of  the district.   A  sleigh  road  will be run from  the  end of .the wagon road this  winter  and the   properties now working  will not have to suspend operations,  while the completion of the wagon  road   next    summer    will    enable  teams   to    haul   in   supplies    and  machinery      at     a      low     rate.  The     west     fork     has     several  mineral  belts.   About   Boomerang  creek    is    a     free   milling    belt,  but the owners of these properties  have not done much   with   their  =locations=fois=some=reasonr==At;  other points the mineral is clean  galena, while elsewhere the galena  Carries copper.   Last year ,a couple  of prospectors  went into the district and staked a number of claims  which they sold at good figures, and  a rush followed.   The Carmi group,  of which Bob Longley, formerly of  Nelson, is superintendent, is working and has from 1500 to 2000 tons  of ore on the dump which they have  contracted to deliver to the Standard pyritic   smelter   now   being  constructed   at.'* Boundary    Falls,  near   Greenwood.     The   Belle, at  Beaverton, is undoubtedly a valuable high grade galena property,  and in the same vicinity are a number of promising properties.   Barbarian Brown has a crew at work  on   the   Washington   and    Idaho  group, and the showing is said to  be excellent.   Considerable trouble  has arisen in connection with town-  site disputes, but  these are settled  and the country will doubtless progress rapidly next year.   The absence of a wagon road and a Raw-  mill prevented the town of Beaverton from growing as it would have  done under.other circumstances.  Back to France.  Viscount de Grammont and F.  Mourgues of the Chapleau Consolidated Gold Mining Company, left  this morning for New York whence  they sail for Frauce. The former  will not return in the immediate  future, having dispatched the business committed to his charge by  the board of directors. He is well  pleased with the country and believes the Chapleau will be a valuable property.   Mr. Mourgues goes  Another    lighthouse    may     be  erected on Kootenay lake, the site  suggested for the beacon  being on  Cape Horn in the Pilot Bay neighborhood.     W.   W.    Strumbles   of  Ottawa, an official of the department    of   marine    and    fisheries,  arrived in the city yesterday en  route to the capital, after spending  four months in British Columbia on  business   in   connection with   the  fisheries section of the department.  Under   the    marine    section    Mr.  Strumbles takes special cognizance  of the. buoys  and   lighthouses in  Dominion  waters.     He remains a  day to inspect the buoys on  the  lake, and will leave this morning  with captain Angus Campbell, mas-  tea of the tug ��� Hercules, to inspect  the   thirteen   cage   and   platform  buoys on the west arm of the lake.  During his visit it was suggested to  Mr. Strumbles that,'a new lighthouse would be of great service on  the lake if placed on Cape Horn,  where steamers plying to and from  Kaslo, Kuskonook and Nelson are  sometimes placed in jeopardy.   The  matter will be brought before the  attention of the minister of marine  and fisheries on Mr. Strnrable's return to Ottawa.  Considerable   interest   has   been  excited in the Dominion fish hatchery at Shuswap, near Salmon Arm.  Referring   to   this   Mr.  Strumbles  says:    The building is  170x3*5 feet  in dimensions, and will contain  90  troughs for  salmon  culture, and a  number   of    smaller   troughs   for  -trout*-culture.   - The- building-] is.  completed outsile and  in with the  exception of placing the troughs in .  position, and laying the 1000 feet bf  steel pipe which conducts the fresh  water from   the'" head of   Granite  creek over the spawning beds.   The  cost will be $11,000, and. the capacity will  bo greater than the Fraser  river hatchery, where,  from 2,000,-  000 to "3,000,000 eggs are frequently  hatched at one time.    The building  is substantial, and is quite equal, if  not superior, to any hatchery in the  east, while it is  not surpassed by  anything J have  seen  on the west,  coast.     The   marked   scarcity   of  salmon   this   year    has    made   it  difficult to stock the hatchery, but  the ova of the steel head will probably   be   secured   for   a   start   in  February. The period of incubation  is about three months. The smaller  troughs will be utilized for  hatching ^cj^p^iesof^ront^s^ma^be^  Tiliouglit mostHesirabltFto cultivate.  The impression somewhat general  that trout hatched in the hatchery  are necessarily to be deposited in  the immediate vicinity is erroneous.  The department makes provision to  send these fry to any point where  they can be safely transported if  proper   representations as   to the  desirability of such action is made.  Thus fry could be secured for Kootenay lake without difficulty.   Since.  -. ~��l  ��� I  arriving in Nelson I have been ap-,^ h?J  proached with the object of secury-T^'l  ing a salmon runway at Bonning-'  ton Falls, but cannot see my way*1  to    recommend    action    in    this-  direction.   From what I have seen*  of  the country and knowing the''  habits of the salmon I should say-  that   any   outlay   along  this  liner- 4?<&|  would only bring fish to the nets off  the   American _ fishermen  on f the" *  Washington   stretches of the Qo-~'-  lumbia.   As ' far as the  trout*- are:jVv-^  concerned it is a different matter, ���'���;?%  and   a   runway   for. trout   would-y^  doubtless be a good idea. '.'-' :n_y&,  Mr. Stumbles came to British Co-, -;  lumbia four months ago, being .ap-'t-  pointed overseer bf fisheries for the'i  province, to expedite his work.-Part'  of his time ,was devoted to the Shuf  swap hatchery and the balance to  the coast fishing industry.    Toucfi-y4"i  ing   on- the canning   industry hey^s*  says:   "The soekeye  salmon yveve.s-^f  practically   a   failure     this    year,;t||?  and      packers      have     had]    tb"''^  fall    back     on     the.,   dog, ^salmon,      which      has      heretofore  been     regarded    as   an ' ��� inferior^  fish.   The difference is largely, thatyfr  the soekeye is richer in oil "and, re- f ;"-$  tains its high color in the .catming-'/^T  process.       The   Japanese r market"']^  appreciates the dog salmon, liow.--^1  ever, and will take' all the.pack if-^fS-  necessary.   -The minister of-marine_~'''$%\  arid fisheries has extended tlie.open'-;*;.^  season for fishing, so that. the /sea^-tlli  son  now  lasts from March 1st tores'  February, instead of having a close  season from  August  25th  to  Sep-'  tember 25th.   Tt.is  surprising that  so little, interest is taken in the  -deep.sea fisheriesi,on_;the Canadian  side of the-line," and-wb" are-en-"  deavbring to bring about a new or- .  der of things.    Halibut abounds ou  the  coast,* particularly about the  Queen Charlotte' Islands/where this  magnificent fish is" especially, plen- -  tiful.   At present the fisheries are *  in the hands of-the New England'  Company,   an   American . corporation, and the Canadians are neglecting an important industry."  Under the marine' section of his -  department Mr. Strumbles has done*  considerable,  work.     In .the ^past-  four   years    the   department   has.  erected eight lighthouses along the  coast besides placing a -number of  large buoys.    It is now prepared tof^  build a large lighthouse at Friday';  Island on the Skagway route.  ThiSj  northern   passage   has   become  so  important now  that  further safeguards   to   vessels   are    thought  necessary.

He will reside in  Nelson as the resident engineer of  the company. Mr. Mourgues spent  yesterday at the mine and states  that the mill is working smoothly  and will beoperatiug steadily within a few days.  The Monashee Ore.  A handsome specimen of oro from  tho Monashee mine is on exhibition  at Vaustone's store. The specimen  is rich in free gold, and would assay away up in the thousands. If  the Monashee had been properly  equipped ou the start when it was  first opened up a couple of decades  ago, its after history would proba-  ably have been a different story. A  rotary mill was installed, however,  arid it would not save the values  which ran out with the tailings and  carried the reputation of tho property along. Tho recent deal on the  property will probably inaugurate  a new condition of affairs, and the  district generally will profit thereby.

This issue should  not be lost sight of in the dust that  is being raised over small- matters.  Another issue is, shall the city's  business be conducted on business  lines,   or be   shaped in  the ante  rooms of* fraternal societies or in  the back-rooms, of saloons and  hotels?     ", .    ''"'     "-." " V  In suspending  the chief  of- the  fire   department   the   mayor  'has  acted entirely within his rights and  for the best interests of the eity.  Nelson has passed beyond ithestage,  of a volunteer brigade with a figurehead for chief, -and the- time -has,  come when.it should have.a trained  fireman in  charge of the department   and   enough   .trained    men  under him to handle the city's fire-  fighting      apparatus      effectively.  There is no-politics iu the^question,  so far as the mayor is  concerned,  however much there.may be^inithe  bonnets of some of the. men, who  are threatening, to. scalp .him..   This  year, up to October. 31st,, the, .volunteer members ;pf the brigade.-haye  been  paid .$2283.50, and .the.,paid  members     $1755,     or      a ������.   total  of over   $4000.    In   addition .--free  quarters have been furnished tohpse  who    lived     in     the     lire ��� ;; hall?  The issue is, whether  the  council  shall control the cost of the fire department, or whether the cost shall  be at the caprice of the members of  .the department.    For the.month of  Oetober the amount disbursed on  payroll account was  $465; for.the  month of September, $452:50; for  the month of August, $437.50, and  for the month of July, $410.   These  THE.  DRlNKjNQ  qualities in the cup are the important features _  to be considered in purchasing tea.  The most  DELICIOUS  flavored tea obtainable is a pure Ceylon of *  choicsst quality.   This tea is put up in lead  packets, on the estates where it is grown.  It is known as  HONDI  C EY LO N TEA       C E Y LO N  TEA  figures show that the mayor vory  properly (.'ailed a halt in tlie expenditures, and they also show that  a paid fire department would not  be more expensive than tlie present  volunteer one. A paid department  would be more effective at performing the duties for which they would  be paid, but probably not so eifect-  ive in nursing prospective candidates for political honors.  The campaign is getting hot, find  the hotter it gets the more conflicting reports are oC meetings.  There is a good .sample .of these  conflicting-reports ou the first page  of today's Tribune. A -meeting  was held at Revelstoke on Monday  night. The Conservatives sent  their account of the meeting ; then  came one-from the Liberals. The  third is a special - that appeared in  the Rossland Miner, a newspaper  that-is supporting the Independent  Labor party candidate. From the  Conservative report, the reader  would be led to-believe that candi-  date McKane swept the platform.  The Liberals have it that candidate  Galliher. made his opponents feel as  if they were not in his class. And  the Rossland Miner report is to the  effect that the meeting was not at  all. enthusiastic as compared with  the -meeting held, by candidate  Foley.  WRITTEN   BY   LABOBERS.  Tii** Tribune lias placed a part of one column  at, the disposal of the Independent Laborers,  whose views   will ho  expressed therein from ���  time to time during the campaign.    A like^pri-,  vilego is accorded ihc Conservatisms   and the ���  Iaiberals.    Thejndependent Labor party, on  reading yesterday's Tribune, were  pleased to find a tribute for unselfishness from the literary- champion of the Liberals, who denounced  the Conservatives as unmitigated;  liars and prevaricators of the truth  for daring, to .assert, that W. A.  Galliher had signed.the petition  againtt the eight-hour law. But  what, a fall from the lofty pedestal  whicli culminated in .sympathy for  .labor, biit unfortunately has no  roots-to circulate and disseminate  tlie necessary sap of brotherly feel-  ring which-is-"sd^essential for^its"  . growth, and development.  The..choice expressions and elo-,  quentiy      expressed      statements,  .denying the possibility of the Lib-:  .eralxcandidate ever signing such a  disgraceful.-petition against the .in-,  terests of, labor, are, now proved by;  tlie,admission of',the candidate himself ;-to be, ,-th.e- ��� actual -pei'verters of  the'-truth. - Where.is now  the confidence, .of   the   Liberals  in   their,  chpsenieader, the man whom McKane called at their last meeting at  Revelstoke "one' who while grasping   their    hands    in    friendship,  stabbed them to tho heart?"  Now fellow workers and you  straightforward electors who side  with the Liberal party can you  conscientiously vote for a candidate  who possesses such a versatile inclination for double,dealing?  The members and followers of tlio  Labor party are perfectly aware  of the mean, shallow artifices .used  by the disreputable . tools of both  political parties and can point with  equal, .discrimination to the disgraceful actions of both when labor  attempted to assert its rights.  We have put a candidate in the  field ;whosc honesty and integrity  is unimpeachable and who will devote his energies to champion the  rightful cause, of.labor and also to  promote any. measures that may  prove.beneficial to the country and  people, at .large.  There, miist be no crying back.  Foley is in the field and he will  surely succeed if the mass of the  voters carry out the principles of  the cause which ie now at stake.  Since   the   great   "washout"   of  November-7th, it must be considered it matter worthy of congratulation to the survivors that they  are here and there beginning to pop  up their, heads to make a last, gasp.  Game to the heels, they are trying  to crow once more before making  the final plunge whicli they well  know will be tho last for many  years. Scill, the public should give  them credit for their nerve. Determined that the show shall still-  travel thoy have changed manager.--, and although without the  slightest hope oi success they travel  on, Micawber fashion, "waiting for  something to turn, up."  Is it possible that they are fol-  lowing'the example of P. T. Branum,  the great circus man who,, having,  lost his leading attraction, Jumbo,  had the dead elephant mounted  beautifully and set upon a pedestal,;  and still continued to exhibit him.  Jumbo was a noble brute, but he  will never again" reach' out''his appealing trunk to*, partake -. of -the  sweetmeats offered 'by his. admirers. It is to be hoped, however,  that the "mount" will ever be  looked upon with respect by the  public as the bygone leader of-an  almost extinct race.  While this procession passes  along the Labor party will watch  with intei*est, tlie actions of the  anti eight-hour brigade on the  next street, and will not be surprised to hear of that student of  Siftonology being offered a portfolio  for having made such a brazen attempt to strangle the naked truth.

OP  INTEREST   TO   LABORERS.  The formation of a new party, in  Great Britain by workingmen is  partly due to the decadence of; the  Liberal party with which labor  generally fused. With Gladstone  the Liberals were a power, without  him the party has dwindled-'-away  to little more than a name.  Another reason is- that, the men,at  the head of a score bi* more reform  movements believe tho time, ripe  for uniting upon a common .platform of simple principles.' "A, third  reason is the hope that the masses  may, through a democratic party,  be led away from their old political allegiance aud educated into a  new political belief.  Afc a meeting of the board of directors of the American Window  Glass Trust it was-decided to fill a  vacancy on the board- by appointing a member of the -workers' association. In arranging the wage  scale for next year the trust offered  the workers' union 5000 shares of  stock, the par-value of ���which is  $100, at .$27. a share, to be paid for  from dividends, providing the  workers resume work two months  earlier after the summer shut-down  '' "Insurance ag.ainst strikes," is the  object of a new association of manufacturers in Austria. Each member pays a weekly premium equal  to from 3 to 4 por cent of the  amount .of his.pay roll, which entitles him, to an-indemnity of 50  per cent of the wages paid to his  employees'in. caseof a strike. How-  over, no,indemnity' is paid, if the  confidential agents- appointed by.  the association declares a, strike,  justifiable.  The visit to Paris of sixteen  prominent English labocjeaders led  to a remarkable demonstration on  the part of the French workingmen.  The Labor Exchange,"in which the  delegates presented their address,  was crowded by 4000 men and  women. The delegates contended  that the interests of the workers of  England,and France were identical  and war would ruin the industries  of both.    The New Zealand parliament at  its latest session passed a law.fixing  a. minimum wage-for children. No  boy under 18 may now be employed  in a factory or workroom at less  than $1.25 per week, nor a girl for  less, than $1. This statute is intended to correct the abuses of the-  apprentice system.  General Secretary Frank lleonen,  of the Brotherhood of Painters and  Decorators, reports: "In unorganized cities painters, are only getting  $1.75 per day and less, while in or  ganized cities union painters are  getting from $2.50 to $3.00 per day  and more, and are treated as men."  General President G. W. Perkins  of. the Cigar Makers' International  Union, reports that the Socialist  Trade and Labor Alliance is supplying scabs to the factory of Hirshorn  & Mack, one of the most persistent  and meanest of the New York combine or trust bosses who ha^e bneii  . engaged in the long lockout.  The incomo of the emperor of  Russia, for one day, is $25,000;  sultan of Turkey, $18,000; emperor  of Austria, $10,000; German emperor, $8000 ; king of Italy.j^q^OO ;  queen Victoria, $8500 ; president of  .France, $5000; president of the  United States, $125.  It is proposed to make street railway strikes impossible in Chicago  by inserting a clause in all railway  franchises providing for compulsory  arbitration. ���  Of 47,901 unionists reported to  the American Federationist, 1,111  (two-thirds per cent.), were unemployed during September, the lowest mark reached this year.  Four classes of factory hands in  Melbourne have had their hours reduced from 00 to 48 through the  influence of unionism within a few  months.���Sidney Australian Star,  October 4th.  Is now prepared to issue Drafts and  Letters of Credit on Skaguay, TT. S.,  Atlin, B. 0., and Dawson City, N. W. T.  THE    MINT    VERSUS    BANKING.  Toronto Star.  Ifc is quite natural that the establishment   of  a   mint   in    Canada  should bring a protest   from the  bankers.    The fact that Canadian  banks can issue demand notes of $5  and upwards to the full amount of  the paid-up capital of the banks, to  all intents and purposes doubting  their capital, must be considered a  great privilege.   It is from a fear  .that;   this   paper! note-circulation  would be displaced to some extent  by gold coin that our bankers object to a mint.    It is also claimed  that a gold coinage is not necessary,  as   Canada   has   no    large    international     settlements    to     make.  These settlements may not be large  as   compared   with  Great  Britain  and the United States, but they  are growing fast, and they have to  be made in London or New York  instead  of some Canadian center.  As our foreign trade   develops so  ought our facilities  to  effect exchange increase.  It is acknowledged that the weak  point about the Canadian banking  system is the meagre cash reserves.  As an-offset to this, however, our  banks- have twenty-five to thirty  millions of dollars in sterling-loans  in New York, -- Chicago, etc., on  which- they make a fair profit. The  groat bulk of this money is no  doubt an immediately , available  asset; but would it not be.better.if  this money was available for  domestic - trade, instead. of for  United States business ?

[ Tni* Tribune has placed a part of ono column  at the disposal of the Conservatives, whose views  will bo expressed therein from time-to time during the campaign. A like privilege is accorded  the Labor party and the Liberals."  The spectacle of the aged baronet, sir Charles Tupper, addressing  meetings in '-furtherance of the  cause-which he believes to be right  should act as a tonic on all apathetic Conservatives. Like every  man, he has made some mistakes in  his active life, but few will deny to  him that respect due to untiring  energy, broad patriotism and to  one of the founders of confederation, of whom few now.remain. If  for no other reason than this a  warm reception should bo accorded  liira on Saturday next.  The Hon. R. McBride'***, minister  of mines, presence at the McKane headquarters last night gave  a vim and snap to tlie whole proceedings. Tlie attendance was remarkably good and promises to con-  tinue^so from now on. In addition  to assisting the election of John  McKane, the attendance at the  committee rooms; does much to enlighten hiany on historic points of  interest, besides, giving others who  have hazy ideas of the true principles of tlie Liberal-Conservative  party a ' clear-* conception of what  they are fighting for. '.....'������  They are fighting for something  more than a-mere desire to see  John McKane in parliament. They  are fighting for one empire and one  flag, recognizing in the light of  history that vigilance is as necessary as ever if we would be spared  bitter dissensions and inward strife  later on. So long as the world is  as present constituted, so long will  men's minds, warped by priestly  dictation and grooved iu dogmatic  teaching, tend to rebel against  those of diverse tongue and possessed of different ideals and tra-  i ditions, who, conscious of being in  the .right, 'will maintain their  position amid' abortive attempts to  dislodge them from the impregnable rock on which this great empire has been built.  That petition and more particularly that circular must be  bothering the Vernon street committee no end. A discreet silence  would have been wiser under the  circumstances, . but the general  blustering that is going on in the  Liberal camp is quite calculated to  impress calm, onlookers that Bill  Galliher did sign the document in  question and is horribly sorry now  he did so. 'The column takes occasion  to say.- that;it_did not publish the  circular in question. The Conservative candidate is giving the matter  all the airing it needs.  PERSONAL.  J. A.

Professor Alexander entertained  another crowded, house last night  and clinched the favorable impression made on his initial appearance.  The topic of his address was  ".Success in Life," and around this subject he succeeded in weaving a most  interesting     talk,    replete,     with  humorous climaxes, yet not  wanting in the more serious situations.  Laughter   and   applause   followed  'each   other   in    rapid   succession.  ���Possibly the greatest interest centered about   the public   examiu.i-  tions  after the lecture.   The subjects were Dr. Rose, Charles Leicester and mesdames  Scott of Nelson  and Hoyt of Ymir.    In   each  instance  the  character   delineations  were     interesting    and . .explicit.  Various      characteristics        were  pointed out and proved so accurate  that the spectators applauded with  pleasure, and altogether this section of the program was  most entertaining.     Tonight   the   lecture  will  be   on   "Our  Greatest   Bene-  at reasonable prices.' Apply iKll Latimer street,  Hack   calls left at   the   Pacific  Transfer  barn on Yernon street.
