To this is added the statement  that the government of Great Britain  has always considered that the construction of a cable is of far greater importance, to Australasia and Canada than to  the United Kingdom. For this reason  the government considers that the responsibility of constructing and operating the cable should be borne by Canada  and the Australasian colonies, they taking the profits and the United Kingdom  giving an annual subsidy not exceeding  ��20,000 for a period not exceeding  twenty years.  Quit Negotiating and Gone to Fighting.  Associated Press.  AVashington, May 4.���The war department is satisfied from the dispatches received -from general Otis  today that the  American commander has  put  aside the  insurgents' temporizing  over   peace proposals and  has  turned   his attention to  most aggressive tactics.    The  wisdom of  this course is fully approved by the  officials  here,  who  have foreseen that the  rebels need further chastisement in order  to bring thorn,to a realizing sense of their  position.    The early despatches from general Otis clearly defined the general plan  of his latest .-movements..   He is moving  in  two  columns.    McArthur -is  pushing  straight forward over a nine-mile stretch  of country  between  Cahunpit  and   the  latest  rebel  stronghold,  San   Fernando,  and Lawton is  directing  a strong  force  under Sumner to prevent  the insurgents  from retreating from San Fernando into  the mountains  to -the north.    The later  dispatches show that there has been hot  work in the execution of this movement,  particularly so  in   McArthur's  advance  on San Ferando.     The defeat of Luna at  St. Thomas and the scattering of the insurgent   forces    leaves   McArthur   four  miles from San Fernando, with a clear road  before him.    He  will take  the  city  tomorrow   morning,   according    to    Otis'  plans.    The taking of towns is no longer  herp as,of ���  deration^  ;t5f{;to��'  ���tSlfiiisiii^ai^  SPAIN TO DEMAND TERRITORY  FROM   HELPLESS   CHINA.  Associated  l'res=.  Iloxd Ivo.vo, May 5.-- Spanish agents  are collecting evidence here; with a view  of claiming a cession of land in China, by  way of indemnity from the  ernment i>>r permitting  Abbey to leave Canton  with arms for the  The      .steamer.      Abbey  Chinese! gov-'  the   steamer  last   autumn  Filipinos,  was      seized  by admiral Dewey on September 2:ird.  She was of American register, though.  formerly known as the fa-si g. It was  reported to admiral Dewey that she was  carrying arms and supplies of Avar to the  Filipinos, and he sent the McCulloch to  intercept her. When the American cutter  finally found the Abbey in Salagas  Bay, on the southern coast of Luzon, the  Filibuster had landed her cargo of arms'  and ammunition, and the insurgents refused to give them up. Thereupon the  Abbey was seized and taken by the "McCulloch to Manilla, in accordance with,  admiral Dewey's desire to maintain the  status quo in the Philippines pending the:  conclusion of the work of the peace commission in Paris.

THE   COAST   "HOGGING"   THINGS.  SAVINGS BANK BRANGH.  CURRENT RATE OF INTKRKST PAID  PERT   AND   PRETTY   AND   PIQUANT.  Even to the vivaeions American A'isi-  tor, the Parisian girl is a. revelation.  Her piquant personality, her incessant  chatter, her live gestures, her bird-like  movements and her fund of information  on the public questions of the hour constitute her a being of exceptional acquirements and enviable gifts. To listen  to two Parisian shop-girls taking politics  is to hear a debate whose, impressive wisdom is worthy of. experienced legislators.  The Parisian girl is a born politician.  She cuts across lots in vher arguments,  handles her subject easily and confidently, has emphatic opinions in favor or condemnatory of the actions of the political  leaders and, with a pretty pertness that  is quite-captivating, guillotines them or  sets them on a pinnacle as her fancy  directs.  These shop-girls have come by tlieir  right to discuss politics by way ofthe  red rivers that (lowed through the  streets of Paris during the time of their  great-grandmothers. To "watch the animated talk of the girls when they meet  in the street gives one a fair idea of the  being in the form of a woman who sat in  judgment on the aristocrats and shrieked  for their hearts' blood in revenge for centuries of oppression and cruelty. She  would do it again too.    There, can be no  Kamloops Sentinel.  T. O. Townley, registrar of titles, upon  the occasion  of his  last official  visit to  Kamloops announced that the provincial  land registry ofiice; in this city was to be  closed,  and   bhe business  transferred to  Vancouver.    This   is   rather  a   startling  announcement,  and, if  correct, one that  will be generally condemned not only by  the  citizens   of   Kamloops, but   by residents of the interior, who have found the  ofiice  of   very   great   convenience.     No  official intimation of any such change has  so far reached   the member  for this constituency.    It avjis  understood  that the  introduction   of the Torrens  system  of  land registration would necessitate some  changes  in the various  land  offices, but  there never was the slightest reason to  anticipate the  closing down of the.Kamloops office.    At  present there  are three  offices on the mainland, one in Ara,neou-  ver, one in Noav Westminster, and one in  Kamloops.    A new office  is to be opened  in Nelson, presumably for  the Kootenay  district.    What  could be  gained by the  closing of  the Kamloops office is hard to  conceive.     It  seems   to   us   that   there  should be enough work arising from land  transactions  in Yale, Lillooet and Cariboo, to keep the off ice here busy.    Mr.  Town ley's statement was  that the New  Westminster office Avas  also to be closed,  thus leaving, only the Nelson and Vancouver offices on the mainland.    Certainly  the Nelson, office Avill have its..hands  full  Avith tlie   Kootenay business,  and  .thijj, "would ^in^jj.iijbhat^  A*er, just as strongly as (.hoy resented the  attempts of the late government to centralize everything in Victoria..  Praise for a Dead Man.  A delegation of former Colorado miners  headed by li. J. Gibson called on The  Salt Lake Tribune one day last week ami  asked that an expression of* the appreciation which Colorado miners entertain I'or  the memory of the late If. A. \V. Tabor,  and of the sorrow which tliey feel at his  death, be given in The Tribune. Mr.  Gibson, who located the famous Mollie  Gibson mine, said "II. A. W. Tabor was  the best friend that the miners or Colorado ever had; lie was the best; friend that  Denver over had ; he was the best friend  that tin* state of Colorado ever had. He  wa.s coarse, uncouth; he did many wrong  things, but he never failed wheu the  poor cried for bread, never when a  worthy enterprise needed a robust  shoulder behind it. and in balancing his  life tho good vastly outweighed the evil."

The    amalgamated    copper    company  ���which was formed on Thursday   is made  up of very solid men, such men as Rockefeller,, Marcus Daly, Alcott,  Flower, Bur-  ridge and the rest, and we are   glad  that  ���Mr. Daly has been made'president.

Our belief is that  had   he   been  less   resolute,   less game ���  game     is    the    exact    word���Anaconda,  would hii/ve  been   abandoned   years ago.  Ifc saw a vast deposit of  low-grade   copper.    He believed from his  experience in  mining  that  if machinery could be adjusted   to   do   the   most of  the  Avork it  Avould be possible  to  make Avhat looked  like defeat a victory, and  that  in doing  so he would secure to four or five  thousand men steady and remunerative Avages,  and   so   he  built  machinery on   a  scale  never seen before.    He closed in with the  large deposit, and  on the  principle that  man has dominion over all this  earth, he  established the dominion over low grade  copper ores, and he won his  victory. , It  is proper, if there is to be a copper  combination, that Marcus Daly should be tlie  president.
