Toronto, April 4.—At tlio Young Liberal banquet here last night Mr. Shielding
dec-hired   sir   Hibbert   Tupper  had   not
made   a    definite    and   specific-    charge
against ..Mr.   Sifton.    If  he   Avould lay a
charge   in   parliament   against    him   it
would   be   inquired   into.     Mr.   Fielding
vindicated the course of the government,
maintaining, with regard to   the  surplus
and the charge that  it was  obtained by
juggling with capital   accounts, that the
accounts are kept now on the same principle   that obtained   under Conservative
rule,   and   that   if capital accounts were
included in the outlay, every one  of the
sixteen   or  seventeen   Conservative  surpluses since confederation   would   disappear.  This year they would have a larger
surplus  than   there  ever had been.    He
expected the Intercolonial railway would
pay its way very soon.    He  cited figures
to show that in 185)5 the annual expenditure   was  $7.n'l   pel'   head   and   in   .185)8
$7.37.'   The   increase  of  the public debt
was due to the expenditure on transportation systems like the Crow's  Nest Pass
railway.    The Conservatives, however, in
seventeen   years   had   increased the debt
at  the  rate  of $0,000-000   per year, and
the Liberals in two years hail   increased
it only by $5,000,000 in all.

of Montrealers are anxiously looking for
II. E. Lowe, who last October opened an
ollice iii this city under the name of tlie
British American Patent Investment
Company, to handle patents f r their
owners and buy and sell rights oil commission. Mr. Mallette, an experienced
patent manager, was induced to enter
into partnership and put up $2400 for the
privilege. The day after securing his
partner "'Mr. Lowe sailed for England, and
nothing has since been heard of him.
Lowe originally came herefrom Toronto,
where he is said to have been' connected

Bi.iu.ix,  April   4. Dr. Von  Hamnian,
under secretary of the German foreign
ofiice, was -asked today for a statement
regarding admiral Ivaut/.'s charge made
against Herr Rose, the German consul at
Apia. He said : "That is admiral Kaute's
'view, the other-view is that the whole
trouble Avas caused by others in the royal
election. We have no official news about.
Herr Rose having issued a •■proclamation.'
We cannot tell what its contents are.
That Herr Rose protested at the consul's.,
meeting we know, but that is a different
thing from a proclamation."
When he was questioned as to the
status of the negotiations on the subject
of Samoa, Dr. 'Von Hammen replied that
Dr..Von BuIoav. the minister of foreign
affairs, has taken his leave.and returned
to Berlin, because he.desires to carry on
the negotiations himself. He 'hail a long
■conference- yesterday with the British
ambassador, and today he conferred with
the United States ambassador. He said
it is true that England is thus far holding back against Germany's pioposal to
send a joint commission to Samoa.
Special to Tho Tribune.
Ottawa, April 4.—-In the house of
commons today Hon. Clifford Sifton, minister of the interior, replied to sir Hibbert
Topper's charges against the governments
administration iu the Yukon. The speech
of minister Sifton Avas described by his
political friends and opponents alike, as a.
masterly effort. He refuted every insinuation, every semblance of charge made
by Tupper, and produced evidence to
show that there was not the sligetest
atom of truth in them. Sifton -was not
only congratulated by all his colleagues
in the cabinet and supporters in the
house, but many Conservatives admitted
that his speech was more than an answer
to Tupper, for it gave an opportunity to'
the minister to show the difficulties that/
existed in the way of governing that distant and almost at one time undesirable
part of Canadian territory, and notwithstanding these, how successful the administration had been carried on.

the view-to .bring about a reunion of the'

Toronto, April 4.—Faith Fun ton, writing to the Globe from Dawson says: ■-Although the royal commission   to  inquire
into   the   charges   of   corruption   made
against'the Yukon officials has been open
tA\o   weeks,   nothing   has  been  proA-en.

ansAvering a question  and  avIio  said  he

been liberated.    He-swore he kneAv nothing against any  official.    Other  charges
^against   Fawcett .have, been   taken  up
and are still under inquiry.  Thus far not
the slightest stigma, is  attached to his
reputation.    He has  been able to rebut
ad\rerse  evidence  at  eA*ery step, wliich
has proved of marked  interest.    Pulford
cwas arrested, for refusing to say Avhether
lie Avas in the pay of the  GttaAva   young
Conservatives.    He    admitted "sending
them   information.    The   Globe  on   the
Yukon charges says:    "Suppose  Tupper
can  establish gross  inisconduct on  the
part of officials in the   Yukon, Avha.t fol-
IoaVs?   He has to'show that the minister
of the interior can be fairly held responsible..  If, for "''example, it is  shoAvn  that
the minister appointed men wlioin public
opinion accepted as  eminently  good appointments, surely  the  minister  cannot
be held responsible, because he could not
anticipate Avhat no one else anticipated."

from here by the agents of Aguinaldo.
In the present instance the insurgents.'
agents claim to have obtained their information from American sources at

mysterious intrigue between,, the Vatican, major-generals Wesley • jVIerri tt, presi -
dent McKinle^ niajor-general KIwell S.
Otis and archbishop Ireland, leading to the Iatter's journey to Rome.
Continuing the statement says: "Tlie

Manila Avere suspicious. Noav, in conjunction Avith archbishop Nozaledas, who
is intimate Avith general Otis, tliey are
endeavoring to procure the former ascendency of the church in the Philippines.
Tlie Paulist policy is more subtle than,
that of the Jesuits, and unless they are
promptly recalled they Avill work further
mischief. The Philippines are a valuable
hunting ground for the church, hence the

Every old-tinier in Tacoma., or, in-fact,  in the state of Washington, either remembers- or had a personal acquaintance  Avith attorney Frank Clark. Clark has  been dead some eight years, but during a  conversation between attorneys his name  came up followed by the narrative of  this incident in his career:  "Twelve years ago," said the lawyer  telling the story, "Clark had as a client a  mail' arrested on the charge of cutting  timber on government land. The United  States was represented; by-two federal  attorneys, brought from a distance, either  Portland or San Francisco, if I remember  aright. When these lawyers came into  court there followed behind them a. porter who unloaded upon the table fronting the judge's bench armful after armful.  of books. Clark strode in .with three  volumes of. law under his arm. The jury  was composed entirely of loggers and.  ranchers. Opening the case, the imported lawyer., delved deep into the tomes of  law before them and cited decision after  decision bearing on the case on trial.  Then using language, one-half of the  words' of which were two extenshre for  the jury's understanding, they launched  into their argument.

Still, the fact that governor 'Brady of Alaska appealed to the government at Washington regarding the  alleged Porcupine river- encroachments  suggests that a meridian on paper will  not prevent trouble unless it is represented, at all important points, by visible  monuments in the soil. Jt has been reported that our surveyors fixed the  boundary where it crossed the Porcupine  river, but that the Canadian surveyors,  who were cooperating with ours, did not  complete their work there, so that the  Dominion miners may have taken this  excuse for not accepting oui-survey ���. as  binding.  The main difficulty, however, is not in  the Kloiidylce region, although that may  cause temporary collisions until the meridian is more adequately marked, but  along the coast strip in the southern part  of Alaska. There the demand of the  Canadians for a'port oj their own on  Lynn canal continues to be urgent. It is  Avell understood that this subject had a  great influence in causing the joint high  commission to adjourn its session until  August without reaching any basis of  agreement.  Public opinion on the Pacific coast insists that the British demand for a port-  shall not be conceded, and it is supported  by the obvious purpose of the original  treaty of February 28th. 1S25, between  Russia and Great.

When   a   mine  becomes  a   shipper  ami  dividend-payer the value of its stock  advances  in   proportion to its assurance of  future returns.    Investment  would then  be on a legitimate financial  basis, gh*ing  a reasonable assurance of fair  interest.  But  that is   not  what   the  speculative  buyer of mining stocks wants.   He thinks  of the great profits that have been made  from  the  dividend-payers, sees  the   impossibility of getting shares on a ten per  cent basis  and   takes  advantage  ofthe  first available opportunity to buy an in-,  terest in  a   proposition'close  beside  it.  Such opportunities are  always  open, for  the success of'a mine in any district is,  aIw-iys followed by the  incorporation of  several   companies    to    work   adjacent  claims, the issue of glowing forecasts and  the liberal advertising of treasury stock  for sale.

'  Thei'e is no more marked feature in  business today than the tendency toward  investment in miuing stocks. There  seems a revival of the speculation so  eager tAVO years ago, and.��� savings are  freely invested in "treasury stock" in  the certain hope of future values and  even dividends. This is by no means  confined to salaried clerks and other employees. Merchants- of standing find in  mining stocks an outlet for spare capital  and a field for iiiA-estments large and  small. Domestic 'savings, life insurance  benefices and other thrifty safeguards  against a time of need are converted into  .mining shares Avith unquestioning confidence. At present Montreal is the chief  mining centre of the Dominion from the  promoter's standpoint, but Toronto, in  ���spite of the discouragements of the recent  mining boom, still, affords a good -market  for the disposal of shares.

A fine body of arsenical iron ore has  been encountered in a crosscut driven  from the 200-foot level. A win/.e has  been sunk seventeen feet .at the end of  the crosscut and is all iu ore, which, it is  said,* Avill average $1(5 gold per ton. This  ore could be very easily stoped, and the  present equipment of machinery at the  mine is sufficient to handle and hoist a  considerable daily output.  w  ANTED���A  WANTED.  good  waitress.
