March 2.���Tho steuuor City of  So-ittle arrived   from' Alaska   yesterday  after a stormy trip.   She had a iiumbor of  p.i��sengi'i--, who brought lato news from  the   interior.    G.  T.   Howard,   who   left  Rampart  City    about    December 15 Lh,  brings a story of a party of ten tender-  feet, who started out late in October to  go from  Rampart City  to the Koydkak  river.    They employed John Folger, an  old-time miner of  the  lower Yukon, to  guide them.   After they had  been three  days on the trail a snowstorm  came up  and three of tliem turned back, reaching  l-'irapn'i't City safely.   Two days lateran-  other bli/.-.ird came up"and the thermometer dropped   to 42 degrees  below zero.  Latejii November a party arrived from  tlie Koydkak and reported that the  men  under Folger had not arrived.    Mr. Howard floes not  know  their names.    W. P.  McDonald, a United  States  mail carrier,,  who  left Circle City   on   January  23rd,  brought sixty pounds of mail.    He says  that the first mail from St. Michael, since  navigation closed last fall, will reach Dawson within ten days.  "Jim" Hill May Build Steamships.  Seattle,March2.���The Post-Intelligencer  says there is understood to be one of the  greatest deals on hand, as affecting the  interests' of the northwest Pacific coast,  that has yet been accomplished. It is the  building of. several new steamships, which  will he.put on a line between Seattle and  the Orient, by the Great Northern Railway Company. This is supposed to be  the real significance of the present visit  to the sound of president Hill and other  prominent, railway officials. Ib is the intention to' run the service direct from  Seattle to Yokohama and Hong Kong,  with other vessels going to Vladivostock.  For this it will be necessary to have at  -least six vessels to give a monthly service.  There will be $10,000,000 spent in this  enterprise,, most bf which will go to purchasing and building vessels. Ibis believed that it will be at least a year before  the line will be in operation.  Experiments to Cure Pneumonia.  Berlin, March 2.���Professor Wassernmn,  . one of professor Koch's .ablest pupils, is"  believed tp have discovered a new serum  V for the cure of pneumonia.

France, Receives Warning.  Paris, March 2.���La Temps in its leader  today points out thab a stronger bond exists between England, the United States  and Germany than most Frenchmen care  to admit. The paper says that the American's forbearance towards Germany in  tho face of certain provocations and Germany's evident desire to make amends  for her former appearance of hostility  may be regarded as sufficient indication  of such understanding. The article concludes with a warning that in view of the  above it will bo a dangerous undertaking  for France to direct her policy toward an  European coalition against England and  America. .      V '  Secured a Week in Which to Plead.  New York, March 2���Roland Burnham  Molineux, who stands indicted on a  .charge of murder in the first degree for  the killing of Mrs. Katrine J. Adams, by  sending poison to Harry Cornish, was  brought from bhe Tombs into the general  sessions court this morning for arraignment. He was a trifle pale, but imperturbable and as smiling as ever. The  courtroom was packed with people anxious to get a glimpse of him. Mr. Works,  counsel for Molineux, asked that one  week's time be given the defence befqre;  pleading. Recorder Goff granted the request.  A Storm Causes Distress.

Akron, Ohio, March 2.���There was practically closed iti this city yesterday a deal  for the combination of all independent  strawboard factories in the country. P.  H. Biunin of the Ohio mills is the chief  promoter of the new scheme. Mr. Binnin  states that the new company, which will  be called the Western Strawboard Company, will have a capitalization of $5,000,-  000. It is thought, here that the scheme is  merely a plan to force tho American Paper Company into buying out the independent factories. "  ���. One of the Family Not IU.  New York, March 2���Mr. Doubleday  this morning announced the serious illness of two of Rudyard Kipling's children. They are the two girls, Josephine,  six years old, and Elsie, three years.

Apply sweet oil to the stocking  where the rub comes. Ib is better than  applying to the boot, because ib sofbens  the inside of the boot, where it is needed,  instead of the outside. Sweet oil is an excellent household companion. Ib heals  burns and bruises. Used in the form of  baths it feeds the skin, prevents colds and  gives flexibility to the muscles. Delicate  people derive the greatest benefit from  being rubbed with olive oil, aud for fragile children it is invaluable, especially  where there is any tendency to weakness  of the chest. A soft corn may be cured  by placing a tuft of cotton wool, saturated with olive oil, between the toes and  renewing it every day. The corn will  soon disappear. When the hair is dry  and brittle and easily breaks off when  brushed, a little olive oil well rubbed into  bhe scalp every night will give nutrimenb  to the hair glands and strengthen and increase the growth. .  Is the Consideration Paid for a Group of Claims,  on Hall Creek.  Kaslo, March 1���The Bannockburn group  of claims, on Hall creek, a tributary of Dun'  can river, has taken up no small amount of;  the  mining   recorder's   attention  during,  the past few days...   In  tho   first place,  Philip   McDonald,   Neil   McFadden   and  Daniel D.  McPhail convey to Oliver T.,  Stone a three-quarters undivided interest  in the Silver B-tttoai, Silver Reef, Buckeye, Evergreen, Iron Mask and Fossil, and  a five-eighths interest in the Bannockburn  claims.    Of these McPhail contributes a  one-eighth interest in the Bannockburn.,  The consideration named in  the bill  of.  sale   is   merely  nominal.     Then   Henry  Griffiths transfers to  Alexander   Smith,  another one-quarter interest in the same  claims for the sum of $5000, of which $3000.;  is paid in cash, and the balance of $2000 in  one year from February 21st, 1899.    Then  begins a series of transfers from O. T.  Stone to various persons of the following  interests:    To E.  H. Tomlinson,  a one-;  quarter   interest for $5000;   to John M..  Schwariz,   a  six-eightieth   interest    for  $1500 ; to Dennis Miller, six-eightieths for ...  $1500 ; to Jacob Bean, four-eightieths for'  $1000 ; to Robert J.  Farringtou,  a three-  eighttieths interest for $750 ; to Archibald ���  Gutline,   a   ten-eigthieths    interest   for  $2500: to Charles Ffolliott, six-eigthieths ;  'for $1500; and to Robert Irving of Kaslo,  five-eigthieths for $1250.   It will thus be.  seen that the sale is upon the basis of  $20,000 for the entire group.    The claims  are said to be very promising and to.have,  been   the object of strict examination on;  the part of several of the purchasers.  There was a gala time at the Kaslo)  skating rink on Tuesday night. The oc-J  casion was the visit of the curlers and!  hockeyists from Sandon, who took the^  town by storm and were agreeably enter-  taiued by their hosts. The UOckey match,'  resulted finally in the victory of the  Kaslo players, but the victory was not a  walk-over. It was hotly contested from  start to finish. The visitors were Hammond goal, Griersou point, McVickie  cover point, with Gusty, -D. J31ackwood,  Crawford and Cliifaas forwards. vKaslo's  beam in the;.same relative positions were  Lovett, Moore; Dill, Young','.Frosty-'Connelly and Hunter.r Two goals in the first  half went to'Kaslo. In the latter , half  Sandon. took two, and ih playing oft five  minutes- to eiich end,>Kaslo won. The,  curling 'match "wasalso"won bytheliaslo'  rinks skipped by -Waugh and Hall. The  score at the conclusion was 17 to 15 in  favor of, the home curlers. The guests  . wereentertained at a dance given at ,the  Kaslo Auditorium aiid subsequently the  Kaslo curlers and "hockeyists sat down" to  "a supper. About forty covers, were laid  and the feast of' reason guilder the direction of W. E. Hodder was simply delight'-,,  ful.

Captain   Erskine,   her    commander, has sent the following dispatch  to the agents of the steamer at Liverpool:  "Labrador^ran  on   Mackenzie  rock in a  thick fog at 7 o'clock Wednesday morning,   four miles from  Skerryvore.   Ship  was caught amidships, the seas  breaking  over her.   The passengers, and crew were  saved in the boats and by the German  steamer Viking.   No steamer is obtainable to return for the passengers.   If the  ship is not broken up we will endeavor to  ;save the mails when a steamer obtained.!'  ;���;   The Librador had a good passage until  Sunday, when she entered a fog bank and  lost her bearings.   Most of the passengers  were still in b'ed when the steamer struck  and there was much excitement.   But the  passengers were calmed by the assurance  of the officers and captain, and the. boats  were lowered without a hitch and all on  board left the steamer  in   safety;   The  passengers and crew lost everything they  possessed.   Captain *Erskine   endeavored  to save the mails,   but   was  obliged to  abandon them owing to the vessel breaking to pieces.   The women and "children  'were put in the first boat in charge of the  fourth:   officer,    the   other    passengers  iw.e.re  placed in  the   second  boat   under  command   of   the    second  officer.   The  ci'ew of the Labrador then took the other  ;boats, and as they left the steamer the  "wheat was pouring into the sea from her  hold."   After three and a half hours the  boats met the steamer Viking from Norway,  which took them  on board, though  'the condition was dangerous owing to the  heavy swell, the seas breaking over the  Viking's   funnel.     When   the Labrador  was last seen she was settling down by  ^th'e stern. .  The passengers of the wrecked steamer  are  full   of praise  for   the   Labrador's  officers and crew and for the conduct of  the captain of the Viking.

'   Canada For Canadians.  [Toronto" Star, February 2.'ird.]  Sir Charles Tupper struck a ringing note  and one that will wake a responsive chord  in the hearts of the people of Canada,  who are thoroughly disgusted with the  conduct of the United States, and especially with the cheek of the demands concerning the Alaskan boundary, which is  the crowning insult of years of tariff hostility an unfriendliness. Self respect demands bhab Canada mark its resentment  in such a manner as to bring the Republic  to its senses, aud at bhe same bime pro-  mobe Canada's brade, and keep our resources for bhe sole benefib of our own  people. To keep our nickel for ourselves,  our logs for our own mills, our fish for our  own fishermen, and our silver, copper and  gold for our own miners. We .might even  throw up the bonding privilege arrangement, and thus keep the trade for our  own ports, and our own railways, even at  some little temporary expense to ourselves. Canada can live within itself, and  once we adopt that principle, the United  States will begin to realize that some  other white people live on this continent.  -'.- Henry Labouchere, iii London Truth,  has. replied to .

It Has Been Found In Placers in Elevated  Places.  "Jack" Hauley, now at Juneau, Alaska,  fourteen and a half days from Dawson, is  much chagrined at not having beaten the  record out. He is one of the lucky young  men who have all the gold they can dig  out of the ground in the next two or  three years. _ It has been some time since  a gold story has come out of Dawson.  Hanley says some of the bench claims,  almost literally on top of the mountains,  are proving as rich as many in the bottom  of the creeks, and this fact almost'takes  the breath out of the bodies of the old  miners, it is so unprecedented. One of  these top-mountain claim-owners, Martin  Walstad, is now here and sick. Neither  of these young men knows how much he  is worth. Both knocked around Juneau  several years, taking what work they  could get in winter to buy grub to prospect on in summer, not knowing the store  of gold ahead of them. vr  Hanley says the total output of the  Klondike mines next clean-up iu the  spring will exceed that of last year by  .several millions. One reason for this is  that a good deal of ground was not  worked last year on account of the royalty. Hope of its being reduced soon has  been abandoned aud succeeded by the  conclusion that life is too short and there  is too much of a good time ahead to wait  longer on the possibility, of saving a few  thousand dollars. - , ',.-..,- . ��� \  ,. The situation at Dawson is about the  .same. '.The town is comparatively, quiet.  .''They 'are-not1 coming in-bunches as  thoy were last, winter," is the way.Hanley  puts.it. "Still Dawson is all right and  will be a good camp for some years, but I  do'hot think it ever again will be the  town it was last winter and summer." ;  .This supports the statement made to  me by another Klondiker two weeks ago,  that Dawson has seen her best days. :.  Klondiker Hanley said experienced  miners would never prospect in Canadian  territory again, which accounts, for so  many going to Eagle City and elsewhere  down, the" Yukon. This- is on accounfof  the royalty; the licenses required, the size  of claims (250 feet), with ten claims below  discovery reserved by the crown, as well  as every alternatei ten claims.;       ,��� L.'  Many men are. still out of work at Dawson, but they have plenty of food.. Hundreds are on the. trail coming out.   The  trail is in good shape, and traveling.com-  paratively easy.  Some new towns are springing up on  the river. At the present rate of de'vel-  opmeht there"wiirobe" townsViiiA year or  two not very.far apf\.\t sallthe *va'y to  ^_3_��Wson.=^Qiute=a=settiiemeh ^  up at the mouth of the Stewart river5 and  and another at Thistle creek. Siibstan-  ti-il buildings are beih|r erected. Hanley  Says he talked with severalacfiuaintahCes  On the way out who had claims on Thi-tle  creek and all expected good pay in th6  spring.  Canadian mail has gone down thfe  river cjuite regularly during the winter,  but tlie American mail hh_j. been allowed to stack up And, liguratively,  grow nlQuldy, cliidfiy at Tagish lake, since  the middle'dl October .last. It is wejeome  news cct thodsauds in the States that the.  American inail is now beginning to move.  flafil'Sy met at Lubarge dog teams carrying about a ton of it, and thes'e teams will  get through to Dawson ail right, if they  are not already at Dawson by the time  this shall have been published. Information is meagre as to liow regularly the  mail will keepi��K nloving. There is need  for the postal department at W'ashington  to get a "move on" in making conjunetion  with the Canadian postal authorities, or  the American mail to the vast and growing interior will not move until aft^r the  ice does this winter or next. The system  of letting contracts for the delivery of  mail to Alaskan ports and towns affords  an excel lent opportunity for improvement.  The idea of Skagway being annexed to  and made British territory has subsided  from a temporary paroxysm to a serene  impossibility.  The news of the exclusion act, which  does not affect British Nortlnyest Territory,, had got down to lake Lobarge about  six days ago and will reach Dawson in 10  or 15 days.  Recording of claims which stopped at  Atlin during the last of January has not  been resumed, and things are still at a  standstill, although there is still considerable travel there and to Porcupine, in  American territory.  NOT WANT THE PUBLIC  To Know What is Bone In  Committee of the  Whole.  There was a special session of the city  council yesterday afternoon for the purpose of considering, in committee of the  whole, the revised bylaws of the corporation.    It  was   a   meeting  at which the  windy members of the reform party were  present,   while   the   brainy   luemberH���  aldermen Thomson and McKillop���were  absent.   Consequently the reform party  got into difficulties, and the consideration  of the revised bylaws "was given second  place to the consideration of the enterprise of The Tribune in publishing the  proceedings of the previous session of the  committee, when matters of considerable  importance   were  dealt   with   in   their  initial stage.  Among the changes which the representatives of the reform party have introduced is the practice of shaping all their  businessin com mitteeof the whole, coupled  with an intimation to the press representatives that they must not publish any of  the proceedings of the council while in  committee of the whole.   As there is no  reason why greater secrecy should attach .  to the   proceedings of the committee of  the whole of the municipal council than  attaches to the proceedings of the provincial legislature in committee of the whole,  .TheVVTrihuni- ou  Wednesday last  published   a summary of  what occurred, in  committee.   At this meeting it will be remembered that it was decided to smother  the scheme of the chancellor Of the municipal exchequer, to impose an additional  tax upon the wholesale merchants doing  business in this city, and if The Tiui-UNE  bad not announced that the council had  decided   upon   dropping   the   matter,  it  could never have been mentioned save by  interrogation at the council meeting.  Another matter which was broached at  the previous session of the committee of  the whole was the desirability on the part  of the reform party of increasing the  number of the saloons and hotels in the  city. This was a reform which received  the special attention of the chairman of  the public works committee, who maintained that an injustice had been' done" to  the residents of the West ward, in that  they had not been furnished with a sufli- -  cient number of saloons and hotels.  . The publicity given by The Tribune to  the rejection by the committee of. alder- -  man Beer's increased tax upon wholesale  merchants and of alderman Fletcher's  policy of saloon "and hotel expansion annoyed the' two", chairmen. " They did not  state their grievance in open council ou  Monday, but reserved their indignation .  for tlie session of the committee yesteiv  day afternoon.' They are not willing  that r,he ratepayers shall- know what  transpires in committee of the  whole, and the city solicitor was requested  to give a legalopiniou as to the privilege  of the press in-publishing any report of  such,proceedings." This he was not prepared, to do offhand, "and something  .weighty in the way of an opinion upon  tins subject may be expected. "  j  . When    Trii_   Tribune'  question   was,  dropped, the   committee   considered  the  revised plumbing bylaw and progress was  re'portcd.        ' - r   ��� "  The question of saloon and hotel expansion wa9 not' reached." This a rock  which threatens to wreck thereform party,  so that.action-will probably be deferred  as long as possible. - L   -  Trout Lake District.

Tlie Porto Rico mine sent out 20 tons of  concentrates to the Northport smelter on  Tuesday. They carried gold values of  $.'-0 to the ton, the entire shipment being  valued at $(100.  the placing of two new properties on the  -.hipping list this season. They are the  Nettie Laud St. Elmo.  The snowfall so far at the Silver Cup  ha*, been 272 inches. Last year' about  this time the snowfall at Ferguson, some  -3000 feet lower, was 47 feet, the snowfall  at Trout Lake being about the same.  0n Tuesday last a strike of ten inches  of almost solid gray copper was made on  the Silver Cup. The new strike is one of  the richest ever made even in this rich  property1. For the past four or five months  this property has been employing a developing force, and the property is rapidly  blocking out ore against the time when a  railrOad will be running through the  valley.   Mining a Profitable Business.  The metal production qf Colorado in  the calendar year 1S9Sj aSi reported by H.

The figures are as follows:  Gold, 1.1SS.G57 lino oz.., at ��20.07 .$2!;53-,050  Silver, 24,47%345 line oz., at 5SJo  ���.  H.S����;7'_3.

Moreover, there is every indication that  these values will be equaled, if not exceeded, during the current year.  Silver Shipments to Asia.  The exports of silver from London to  the east in January show* a considerable  decrease this year, the total value having  been ��6-11,880, against ��738,765.   To China  there was a large comparative increase,  the total being ��225,380, against ��114,271  in 1898; but tne shipments to India and  the Straits were ��416,500, against ��624,494.  The   value of the silver shipments from  San Francisco to China showed a decrease  of 16 per cent, the total for January last  having been $710,937.

Teackle Wallis, for many years the  leader of the Maryland bar, was noted fpr  his wit and sharp tongue. On one Occasion  it; was remarked to him that a certain law  firm, suspected Of not being altogether  reputable; had a fine practice. "Yes,"  said Wallis, "their practice is better than  their practices." Of a well-known judge,  ..jWhpse opinions were generally eharacter-  izea'by a great vacillation and indecision  of mind, he once said :     "Judge B is  certain of one thing in a case, and that is  that there is a doubt in it."  Lord Palmerston never quite gave up  his attentions to young married women.  Remonstrating with him on this habit,  one of his serious relatives-, a lady, began  by describing ib a.s ungentlemaiily; it was  also, she said, contrary to religion; finally  she urged "it can never answer."

When Ernest Terah Hooley, the famous  promoter, became a bankrupt, last June  the world at large was astonished, although the said world ought to be prepared for any little eccentricity on the  part of Napoleons of Finance, even if  they do not assume the title. Mr. Hooley  promptly announced that he had been  forced into bankruptcy'to protect himself  from the harpies who had been living off  him," aud the world, was inclined to believe him, especially when he began to  unfold a long listof peers and other titled  English persons who had received money  from him. The official receiver iu bankruptcy filed his repoit recently, and it is  quite as interesting in its way as much of  Mr. Hooley's testimony, and, being official, it is undoubtedly quite as true. Besides, it is colorless, and it is only by reading between the lines that one sees all  that the official receiver saw.  To begin with, the liabilities are placed  at abou.-S-o_.--15 Ss. Sd., and the assets at  an amount sufficient to afford a dividend  of four shillings in the pound. The report  .sets forth Mr. Hooley's business life iu  some detail.

He paid  ��3,000,000 for the assets of the I^neuuiatife  T'ir6 Company and ��3QO,000 nioi'e for certain patents, and sold them to the Dunlop  company for ^OOOiOOO, making a gross  profit of ��I,7OOj0OO. His expenses here  Were heavy. It was for thi _ company  that Mr. Hooley said; he hat! to iilal.e his  largest purchases Of peers; he ��aid he had  to buy the earl of Albemftrle and the earl  De La Waiffaird others for tlie purpose  Of getting ''the good names oil the front  page of the prospectus," aiid, as a result,  the issue of bonds was over subscribed.  He had given various papers the right to  call shares On him, and its the dear public  had Unkindly bought up all the shares,  when the free find independent press  called them, Hooley had to pay heavily  for them. So, in spite of the gross profit  of nearly two millions, he had a clear  profit Of only about ��172,000.  On the promotion of the Cycle Manufacturers' Tube Company, Limited,  worked in -be same month of May, IS'JO,  he lost ��5846, and on the Trent Cycle  Company, Limited, promoted in the same  month, he lost ��23,000. He had a lot of  titled persons in this deal, for whom he  had to spend: i-H.nejr, It seems as if the  advice "put not: thy trust in princes" or  even in peers might have been given to  Mr. Hooley with propriety. Out of the  Singer,. Cycle Compauy promotion he  cleared in June ��08,400, and in August,  1890, he lost _S40,454 oii the Dunlop Pneumatic Tire Company (Prance), Limited.  The same two earls, De La Warr and  Albemarle, were said to have been paid  well for "going oh the front page." In  October he lost about ��122,000 on the  Clement, Gladiator and Hum ber (France),  Limited, and made ��24.405 out of the  Swift Cycle Com pans', Limited, of course.  He lost ��106,400 on the Pedersen Frame;  Company. These were all his cycle companies, tifteeu in all, with capitals of ��10,-  035,000; his profits were ��42-1,430, but Mr.  Bucker got h half,   so that Mr.  Hooley  cleared only ��212.218.  In August, .189(5, lie bought 1183 acres  near Manchester and tried to sell the  tract in small lots, but lost ��160,214. In  November ho promoted Eovrii (British,  foreign and colonial), Limited, out of  wliich he cleared about ��34,135. Jn May,  1897, he promoted Schweppes, Limited,  with a loss of ��36,190. The British Embroidery Machine Company, Limited,  cest him ��26,079, but he made ��1030 out of  the Dee Estates. Limited, and ��12/934 out  of the Blaisdell Pencils, Limited.  His biggest loss came in the promotion  of the United Ordnance and Engineering  Company, Limited : the company went to  allotment, but only ��80,000 were subscribed, and poor Mr. Hooley lost ��473,000.  Then he lost various small sums (small for  him), like ��2000 in the Lee-Metford Small  Arms Company, Limited. Altogether he  went into promotions involving ��18,610,-  000, wherein his consideration was ��14,132,-  442, and the purchase price was ��9.103,534,  so that the gross profit was ��5028,908, and  the expenses were ��915,912, and the losses  through selling shares at a discount and  buying at a premium to deliver on contracts/etc, were ��4,097.781, so that the  gro��s profit became a loss of?��89,312.  The official receiver remarks that "all  the companies were largely over-capitalized and the subscriptions thereto were  obtained through extravagant gifts in  money and shares to obtain directors, and  large fees for the introduction of and payments to titled and other persons for the  prospectus." Fiom this it may be inferred  that the denials of the various titled and  other persons did not impress the official  receiver.  Then Mr. Hooley made a little profit,  about. ��4124, out of a flyer in Hum ber  stock, and rigged the market in  the matter of the Beeston Pneumatic Tire Company, so that he made ��22.750.   On the  strength of a bogus bid: of ��8 per share,  the stock advanced,  he and his  friends  realized���and   the   public realized  later,  too.   The official receiver reports that the  transaction Was fraudulent, and that the  bankrupt was a party to the fraud.

I am an  Irishman, and it has been said that when  an Irishman can't find a fight he picks  one. But in this case it is different. I  believe the course I am championing will  bring peace, universal peace. The sphere  of influence idea has proved wrong, and  in every instance it has brought friction  between nations and between them and  the races they have sought indirectly to  rule.  In his desire to learn American feeling  on subjects iu which he was interested  the admiral did not hesitate to become a  questioner.  "Now, don't you really think," he said,  "that the sentiment in America is more  friendly to England than it ever was before?"!  "It is undoubtedly," was the answer  given, "becauae of England's friendly attitude to us during the Spanish-American  war, aud it would be more so at this  moment were it not for your fellow  countrymen."  "I know that, I know that," he responded musingly, "and, do you know, I can't  blame them much. Jam an Irish landlord and am against home rule, for it  would destroy the empire, but if I had  been a tenant before the act of* 1870 I  would either have been confined in an  Irish jail or I would have left my native  isle   to become a citizen of the United  The Tremont Hotel  th$t!'".the��c^  i'protftsy'S-Vlh'oiig  ^business, .he- gaveVhis- lordship:- sharesnii'  '  ."l^'q..r*^l   *   "^-T..P." ���  .��pp    flrt^^nV.-o �� &",.��� */.   ~.L,D.hu     .'uW/j"*';_r  ^the^Hoolev;Jrtineson/svndicate,s^alued*at  ile3O���OO0.*. ^"Mrr^IVJJ^Pal^^ y^as"^ubt.her;  a_YircJ_^se/,��^  ^a%IiVit4Cnftib^ ���  > ?;_a_fc%_ff&iip-��^  ;h"iis"iio-.^ai^e^tn'.biiglij fp'1 .\3a!y"IF shillings  ���"iir tlie pqundj* thsitt ���h^'lia'sCiiOt^lcept ^v'rd-.  .per.bpofe,, aud'.'liS-}' ;contributed��� to������;iiis  l_?.nkr��iVp^cy���6y extmya  tion;, abd���has"befeh^giUllt^pfjfft":aud". ancl? ��8f,  misconduQt in ��"pj.i,yiiig ��"la_rg��:"s"ums- to - "dlr  r ec toiis0 a ii d o,t hers, *& n d !h a^ b.feen flVpriyy* t d -,  the. de-!t*iicfiiqti.

Hut Irish-Americans do not understand that conditions have changed  now, that rents are fixed by the courts,  that the tenant is master of the land, and  that the landlord has no absolute rights  over him. Ireland is prosperous today.  I travHlle.fi through it from end to end last  summer and I found that the savings  bauks contain ��10,000,000 more than they  did nine years ago.  "J ask of tny countrymen today to forget old scores. I don't blame them for  their feelings in the past any more than I  blame the Americans of '70 for breaking  away when George III. played the tyrant  over them.  "Irish generosity and chivalry have  been headed the wrong way for the last  century, but I think now that the wrongs  are nearly right and that-England sees  with a clearer vision. Irishmen, Englishmen and Americans, why should they not  live in unity? They are of one blood, one  system of laws, nearly of one religion.  Humanity and Christianity would be the  lasting gainers by a bond uniting the  three.  In the detail of his account of his mission to China, lord Beresford said:  "I was asked to go to China by the associate chamber of commerce of England  and report upon its political and trade  conditions. I esteemed it a high political  honor that I, a naval officer, should have  been selected for the mission. Although  I had no official status it is likely that my  report, which will be lengthy, will be  made a parliamentary document.  "I went to China to gain exact information, not for British gain but for the advantage of trade at large. At Shanghai  immediately prior to my departure for  America, I was given a banquet by the  Euglish, German, American, Japanese,  Chinese and even French foreign residents. They informed me that the work  I was doing was for the common good.  "I was in China and Japan from September to January. In that time I paid  personal visits to six of the eight viceroys or received calls from them. I do  not exaggerate when I say that the Chinese government would welcome'today  the interference of an alliance strong  enough to say to prowlers 'Hands off.'

Me said England, America,  Germany and Jap-ih .should unite in maintaining tile ''open door" to China, peaceably if they could, otherwise if they must.  Franco and Russia, he said, had no place  in trade calculations, their aim being  territorial domination and the consentient  tax levy upon conquered subjects. The  coalition of France and Russia ha named  as the common foe, the Bear and the Fox*  who must be met at once with iora and  craft. In China, rebellion swep1-, bankrupt, tottering China, lord Beresford  ' asserted he saw ready to hand the weapon  to check Russian insolence, French deception and the dissolution of the Celestial  emuire itself.  "Put backbone into the Chinese government," said lord Beresford, "have its army  organized with English, Ameruan, German and Japanese officers, let them make  it into a force capable of protecting China.  Have China make the declaration that its  ports are open to the trade of the world  and place it in a position to say it can  protect investors. China would welcome  such aid today.   It wants to be braced."  Lord Beresford smiled at the suggestion  that Russia and France -might oppose  actively such a consummation of world  trade doctrine.  "What of it?" he said with a laugh���a  naval laugh it might be designated. It  gave a yearning expression to his face  and caused, the muscles to giow tense  with an expression not lamblike.  ���"Then, I think, would be the time i'or  R. HURRY.  Prop.  BON TON JBSTAURANT.

The aunual meeting of the Nelson Liberal Association was held last evening in  the Hume Plotel hall for the purpose of  electing officers for the ensuing year. The  association is now practically two 3'ears  old, and tlie circumstance that last evenings meeting drew an attendance of 2S,  was sufficient to gladden the hearts of  the members of the old guard who have  been acquainted with the days when the  Liberals cut a much smaller figure in  Nelson.  The election of officers was commenced  by making Hewitt Jioscock, M. P., hono;-  ary president. This is the second honorary presidency which has beeu thrust upon Mr. Bostock. On the eve of the la-c  Dominion campaign he was made honor-  -ary president of the Nelson Boat Chili,  and it is now openly hinted that if he will  secure for Nelson the necessary public  buildings, an effort will be made to secui e  for him an honorary office in the Sociei y  of Kootenay Pioneers. i  There was a lively contest for the office  of president. The candidates were W. A.  Galliher ancl Dr. Alexander Forin, The  issues iu the contest appeared to be the  question of aid to the sister's hospital,  and whether or not the changes made in  the present city couucil were desirable or  not. The former president of the association was Gilbert Malcolm Sproat, but as  his name does' not appear on the minutes  furnished to The Tkh_uni_, it��may be presumed that he was not in the race for reelection.  There were three ballots necessary to  elect. On the first Dr. Porin secured  11 votes, W. A. Galliher 9, John Ay ton  Gibson 0, and John Anthony Turner 2.  For the second ballot the two lowest men  were dropped, when Dr. Forin secured  three additional votes, while Galliher  made a gain of five. This made both candidates tie with a vote of 14 each, aud a  third ballot became necessary. It resulted in one of the supporters of Forin  abstaining from voting, aud-as Galliher  Secured his full fourteen votes, he was the  winner by one vote.  For the offices of secretary and  treasurer there was no contest.   In George 0.  iTunstall, junior, the tweuty-seven members present recognized that the association had au efficient secretary, and his  election was   made   unanimous.      Something of  the   same   nature cropped   up  ;when the office.of treasurer was considered.   The zeal  with which John Ayton-  ���Gibson    espoused   the    candidature   of  George C. Tunstall, junior, for  the office  :of secretary was but equaled  by the zeal  with which the secretary advocated the  election of John Ayton as treasurer, and  4his.telftctioii \yaSjalso made unanimous.  ���^T^e^el^ppidnlpf^Biii executive for   the  ,jkslso'ciat1on^��^hnpjwe,cl^ what  'a   mixed-up^  /aff-uif.^ is,  viewed  'sfiioiulwpfp^incial^a'iidL 'milnicipal-,stand-  ^.poia^sV^lTh^^lec^oTn resulted in,.the re-  ?t\vi'b''^csB^^*;"._|^Miitiftr,- "James;Banherman,.  :G.s��l^rank��"BeBr/^:.lKI.Johnso.., Div G.'

'  News has been received at Toronto of  the experiences of a party of half a do/.vn  Torontonians, including Alfred and Frank  Davidson, J. R<ie, E. Eitiboden, Edward  Ivenrick and Joseph Montgomery, who  started last February for Dawson by the  Edmonton route. They left the latter  place on March l*t, comprising a party of  ;ten men, with 30 horses and about a ton  and a half of provisions for each man. As  the journey progressed, the party found  that their provisions were somewhat of a  burdeD, especially when the horses were  attacked by disease, wliich carried off  .twelve of them and made the others look  like wrecks. At the Peace river there  was a quarrel, and some of them returned  home. The other members of the party  made boats for themselves and floated on  down the river slowly. When the last  letter was written, on October 20;h, the  ;party had passed Fort McPhersou, and  were pushing on to the L-ipeer's house.  They expected to build shanties in which  to pass'.tlie winter, and when spring comes  to float on down to the Yukon and thence  to Dawson.
