Ottawa,    April    5.—A     considerable
change in tho sentiment., of the house has
been wrought by  Sifton's  reply   to  sir
Hibbert   Tuppei-'s   arraignment   of   the
Yukon administration.    The   feeling, especially on the government side,  is that
.Sifton's answer was fairly complete, and
that the bottom is largely knocked out of
any statements made by Tupper.    Sifton
had many   letters  and   facts   to  submit,
which certainly went far to either  dissipate or minimize many of the statements
read by Tupper.    Sifton handled the case
very well.    Me   was   markedly  cool   and
defiant and made a favorable   impression
among  the   Liberals.    -He   hurled out a
bold defiance in his   concluding   remarks.
While almost all members on  both   sides
are    prepared    to     admit    that    there
was       sea 11a-waggery        and        scound-
relism   on   the   part   of   a   number   of
officials, and that there  must  have been
serious offences when there was so much
general  indignation   and   criticism,   still
the feeling seems to be that Tupper went
further than the facts   of   which he was
possessed would warrant.    There is much
talk about his attack  on   Walsh,   Wade
and M'aguiro, and many think the attack
on the former to be uncalled. The friends
of Walsh, and he has many, declare that
he is a man of proverbial sobriety; indeed
all seem to say that he  has always been
a. most abstemious man, if not a total abstainer.    Sifton  read   Walsh's  letter  of
denial with great  emphasis  and   it was
well received.    Sifton scored a   point   by
reading Tupper's   letter  giving Wade a
certilicatc of character.    Sifton admitted
it was a. mistaken policy to allow .officials
to stake claims, and ou his recommendation it had   been   rectified.    The   policy,,
however,    had   been  adopted under the
Conservative mining   regulations,   which
did not prevent the staking of claims by
All Canadian News.

London, April o.— The fact that the
contract to build the bridge over the At-
ba-ra river, a branch of the Nile, has been
awarded to a. Philadelphia firm, continues
to create a- groat impression here, and the
Evening News today refers to the matter
as an "Egyptian Avar office scandal" and
characterizes the whole transaction as
The News declares that the specifications were altered in favor of the American contractors, adding: "It is .only explicable if one remembers the habitual
animosity shown by the khedive and his
government to tlieir habitual protectors.
If the bitter antipathy to British engineers revealed in the proceedings cannot
be traced to.the khedive, and is the result of foolish and unpatriotic prejudice
on the part of the English advisers, the
sooner those' advisers are brought to
book the better."
The same paper publishes an interview
with Dr. Westwood, of the linn of West-

Roberts, of the Pencoyd Bridge Works,
in which Mr. AVestwood declares that the
Egyptian war oflicc altered the design of
the Albara bridge to suit the Americans,
-while-it did not give the British firms

NELSON, April 5th, 1899.
To the Editor of The Tribune:
Mr. M. S. Davys has instructed us to write J ou with
reapeel, to two articles which appeared in your issue of
(he 20th of February last. One of the articles in your
editorial column states that men had been discharged
from tho SilTerKing mine who aro known to havo voice!
for Mr. Hume at the late election, and suggesting that
the mine management had bettor be changed. Youthen
(to on to state that mine superintendents should understand that this is a free country, etc. Tho whole i fer-
encc to be p'ainly drawn from tho nrticlc is, that Mr;
Davys discharged men from the cmployine t of the Sil vor
King mine on account of their having voted for Mr.
Hume. Mr. Davys denies any such state of ailliirs, mid
feels that the remarks are calculated to hurt him in h's
position with respect to his employers, and af-k.s yon to
retract the statement, whieh, we trust, in all fairness,
you will do. He feels that he is also justified in finding
fault with a statement in your local news column as to a
petition being circulated with respect to tho taking away
of tho license of the hole] owned by Mr. Morice. However, as this does not refer to bin; pointedly, we do not
feel that lie would be as much injured through this as by
the article first mentioned. Wc would n_.k you to retract"
through the columns of your "paper "the statement contained in the first'article above referred to. yours truly,

Ai.uanv, N. Y., April 5.—Jn the senate
this afternoon the bill of senator Willis,
which provides that cattle brought into

Senator Maiby* IfdVve*j*er, Veproseuting, an
agricultural district, d'efcJuded the bill.
He said the state had expended a great
deal of -ivoney in the exaniination of
tiibercufdSis iu cattle aiid had a right to
require that cattle should  be protected
to the state from Other localities. Aii
the Noav England states on the east, and
Canada oil the north, required the tuber-
coiosis test of Oattle imported into their
locality, and the result wfts that NoW
York m.trkcts hiid become the dumping
ground for all kind of cattle in the
State. The bill was finally progressed to
the Order of _in.U passage.

Ottawa, April 5.—When the house
met today, two bills Avere introduced, one
by Mr. Fortin, to amend the winding up
act, and the other by Mr. Beatty, to
amend the act respecting the salo of rail-
A\*ay passenger tickets. They wore read
a second time. Mr. Borden, of Halifax,
proceeded to reply to minister Sifton on
the Yukon charges. He said that Avhile
the Nova Scotia and Ontario mining laAVS
preA*ented any official from being interested in mining claims, still Yukon officials
Avere privileged to deal in them. Iu regard
to the goA'ernment .having acted promptly
he denied that such Avas a fact. Commissioner Ogilvie, he maintained, Avas
not able to make a thorough, and .satis-'
factory inA*estigatioiii and he quoted an
article from the Toronto Globe which
said that the investigation might not end
Avith the Yukon commissioner,''as bearing
out his contentions. He said that there
were difficulties as great to contend with
in British Columbia,; Avhen gold Avas first
found there, as there were in the Yukon,
yet no scandals occurred in British Columbia. He maintained that the charges
of the member from Pictou—sir Charles
Hibbert Tupper—were supported by evidence, and that the correspondent of the
London Times had also given particulars
of the charges.

Ore Shipments from Moyie.
Moyie Leader, April 1st.
During the month of March
shipped twenty carloads of ore
smelter at Trail. This is in tho neighborhood of 412 tons of a. gross value of $32,-
9(50, and a not profit to tho mine owners
of nearly $10,000. The St. Bugone shipped 870 tons and the Lake Shore made
up the balance of 42 tons. Since the first
of February, 1,800, Moyie has shipped 822
tons of ore ol" a total value of over $0;"),-
000. A.s there wore 28.days iii February
and 'ill days in March, »{) days, in all, it
Avill be seen that-. Moyie's ore shipments
have averaged' considerably over $1000
per day for that time. Thereisiio longer
any doubt about the building-'of tho St.
Eugene concentrator, flume and tramway,
for preliminary operations having already
Want a Wagon Itoad.
The fifty-odd settlers along the north
shol-e of the outlet, 'between _STelsoli and
Kokanee Crock, do not take kindly to the
raise in r.ites by the two companies operating .steamboats oii the lake. They
chum tluVt four coats a mile for steamboat travel is not in proportion to the
rates charged on railways. Tlie settlers
aro willing to build a good AA'agoli road
through ■tlieir own lands if tlie government Will build the road through
the crown lands. Tllcy estimate that a
good road can be built from fvokaiiee
Crook to Nelson, a. distance of twelve
miles, by the expenditure of $>'J00 a mile
on the part of the government. At Nelson a ferry would have to be put in, but
the settlers claim that would bo done
once there was traffic enough to justify it.
What Silverton Has at its Eack.
Silverton has a coming bonanza at its
back in the Noonday, now being developed by Stewart Brothers and Bonedum
under lease. It Avill prove the salvation of the Galena Farm and the
vicinity. A.s development progresses
the vein steadily improves. There is
three foot of ore, ten inches of which will
ship without sorting and it is very high
grade, it has been demonstrated that
the vein runs -more cast and west than
expected, following the course of the
creek towards the lake, and bringing into
prominence a number of other claims.

to 20 ]jer cent on the capital, but 50 per

is a good surplus on hatul. The capital
of the syndicate is .£20,000, of which only
_£750() lias been called up. Tho shares
are in demand in, London and are at present quoted at £8 for £.1 shares, a pre-

A most interesting trip wliich I took  some time ago with a party of 'English  people in Central Asia furnished an opportunity to observe Russian plans and  methods. It was an undertaking of  Woolrych Perowne, a young man who is  just now doing more than any other  Englishman to introduce Russia to his  countrymen, who, up to that time, was  the only person that had succeeded- in  persuading the Russians to permit him to  conduct a -party of tourists through the  Trans-Caspian provinces. These provinces are under the management of the war  department at St. Petersburg, and the  law is that no foreigner is to be allowed  in them without the special permission ofthe minister of war. The reason of this  regulation, according to the Russians, is  that the provinces are in such a transition  state that it -would not be ad visible to  allow strangers to wauder through them  at will, but the English have thought  thatthe regulation pertained mainly to  them, and .that tlie Russians do not  want them to find out what they are doing there.  Whatever the real -explanation may be,  Mr. Perowne, with tlie help of influence  at St.  Petersburg, got an Otkritki List,  _ au<J;  .au  Is t]ow prepared to issue Drafts and Letters  of Credit on Skaguay, U. S., Atlin,, B. C, and  Dawson Citv, Yul^oq District.  his control, and it was an opportunity to  study Russian management of conquered  territory such as none of us will probably  ever have again. We talked politics from  the beginning of the trip to the end, and  Ave were free to put any questions to our  hosts that Ave liked. They did not always answer us as fully as we hoped they  Avould, but they let us roam about without any hindrance Avhatever, and took us  Avithin 'thirty-six hours' journey of Afghanistan anjl within forty iniles of the  Persian frontier. We .were consequently in a position to observe pretty carefully the lines on which they are likely  to expand when the right moment comes,  and Ave Avere allowed to see with considerable mineuteness their machinery for  expansion.  Their entertainment of us Avas a matter of wonder to every member of the  party. From the moment we arm*ed at  lirasnovodok until we sailed away from  it back to the Caucasus Ave were treated  practically as a political embassy from  England, and I hear that more could not  be done if the queen herself visited the  country. We were wined, dined, entertained with sham battles, talked to,  preached about in the churches, and  toasted as if Ave 'were Russia's fondest  admirers, and at. the last big function  toasts to an alliance of England with  Russia formed a climax.

We were seventeen days travelling from  Krasnovodsk to Samarkand and back,  and lived the entire time in a special  train which Kourapotkin put at oui* disposal. We had three baggage cars, a  hospital car, a dining car, three sleepers,  three salon carriages and an observation  c.ir. As guides Ave had a gentleman from  the foreign office at St. Petersburg and a  colonel of tlie railway regiment which  looks after the interests of the Traus-Cas-  piau railroad. We saw the usual things  of interest along the route, and coidd not  possibly have seen Merv, Bokhara and  Samarkand under .more auspicious circumstances, but.entertaining as all this  sightseeing was, what interested me  most was the significance Avhicli the Rus-.  sians gave to our visit.
