AND   IS  John   Redmond   Holds   Mr.  ���   Responsible for tho Disorderly  Scenes  of Tuesday.  Balfour  : -   London, -March 7.���The under sec-.  * rotary of the foreign   office, lord  Cranborne,  informed a questioner  that the text of the dispatch from  the   British    ambassador   at    St.  Petersburg to the foreign office re-  i porting the oral promise of Russia  to the effect that the Russian occu-  ' nation ,of Manchuria was only, tern-,  , porary, had been seen and approved  by count Lamsdorff, Russian min-j  inter of foreign affairs, at the end?  ! of February.  The speaker, Mr. Gully, announced  that he had received a  letter from  i Jordan to the effect that he'had  'not defied   the  authority  of the  chair, when a number of Irish members were removed from, the house  rby force Tuesday, andori motion of  . Mr. Dillon Mr. Jordan's  name was  'removed from the'list of suspended  f 'members.        . c     ^, .  ,    .^,   -    ,  -   * Miv^ Balfour. ** then ^moved^his^'  " amendment to the'rule'7governing  I the "suspension of recalcitrant lrierii-  ". bers;  'In supporti'ug tlie motion, he  v .rsaid' it was 'necessary io "provide  adequate summary punishment for!  such "physical, resistance   to' the  '^'speakerte.orders >as occurred' Tnes-  "'_. day.

" -^four's amendment." , "   '  w>,Mr.wJohntRedmond said what had  > occurred was a natural,, ebullition  of feeling against an unjust closure.  .He denied   that it "was   prerriedi-'  tated, aud said the' moral responsibility for what had   occurred was  ' wholly on Mr. Balfour, whose proposal   now was   extravagant  and  unnecessary. ', -*  Lord5 Hugh^ Cecil, Conservative,  moved an .amendment providing  that recalcitrant members should  be imprisoned.'   This was opposed   .by Mr.,.Balfour.-who..pointecLout..  that it would-place too-much responsibility upon the government  and'lord' Hugh Cecil withdrew the  proposal. i   .   /  Several passionate speeches were  made and the ' scene was one of  great excitement. Finally, having  , forced a division by shouting "Aye"  ~when the speaker put the question,  the Irish members joined the rest  of the house in the "No" lobby.  The result being that no one' voted  for the amendment.    .     ,   .' ,  Lord Cecil and 421 others voted  against it. An incident which had  raised much bad blood ended- amid  peals of laughter. Several ineffectual attempts were made to adjourn  the debate. Mr. Balfour appealed to  the house to arrive at a decision before adjourning and the debate  went on.  At 4:30 a.m. he moved a. closure  on the motion for adjournment, but  the motion1 was rejected by 231 to  119 votes and the debate was resumed. At 5:15 a.m. Mr. Balfour's  new rule was adopted by a vote of  264 to 51.  * 5:50 a.m. ��� Under closure <in  amendment by'Mr. Labouchere to  make the term .of suspension two  months was rejected by a vote of  224 to 97.  Mr. Balfour moved that the main  question be put. This was followed  by cheers and uproar mingled with  cries of/'gag." The speaker then  read the new. rule and the house  divided. The house adjourned at  5:40 a.m.  were scattered and fifty of ;them>  were killed. Two of their banners'  were taken."

Sir Charles Scott  says   in   part:  "Count Lamsdorff gave me the true  version of what has taken ��place  .+very clearly.   He" said' heVhad ^read  allegations in the press that Russia  had concluded br   was engaged in  concluding with China   a 'convention    or   permanent  arrangement  which .w.ould give Russia new rights  and",, a* virtual ��� protectorate" "pver<i  Southern Manchuria.  'This, he de-  clared'to be' quite untrue, asserting  that the only ground forjthe rumor  must hafve Been theVfact^'that- the  ��� Russian military   authorities,' who  had been in the temporary occupation5 and pacification-of'the ~pro-  yihceTshould thus - elect- w.hen   re-  , instating .the. phinese 'authorities,  f'to arrange jwith.the the ^bcal civil  ^authorities a modus vivendi for the  duration of the simultaneous^ pres-'  ence'of Russians   and i Chinese .in  Southern Manchuria, with the object" of preventing5 a   recurrence of^  disturbances in'the,vicinity of- the  Russian.frontier and of protecting  resolution requiring him to leave.  The resolution set forth that his  presence on .the floor of the house  was a violationof the rule that the  three departments of the govern-  ment-^executive>,judicial and legis-  latiye-^must b^kept seperate, and  i�� was urged ^nV debate that the  governor put O^operwhere he was  with a view of\ intimidating members by letting.them see that.the  executive officer^ was taking a stenographer's' rfe^ort^of'the5 proceedings. ; ,Coop?r^as declared. by the  Republicans to'be .present as a representative of j president McKinley,  as he had been.ordere'd to transmit  a report to Washington,'but even  this plea'did not deter the independents. yfAtter? a; long, debate  they passed' the , Beckley resolution  by a Tjote of twenty to > nine, being  all the^Repiiblicahs in'the house.  \.

Pauncefote Will Remain.  Washington, March 7.���The  unofficial reports current some time  ago that lord Pauncefote, the  British ambassador, would have his  period of service^ at Washington  continued have now been confirmed,  audit appears that thexextension  will last throughout the present  year "and is likely to be followed by  another extension, owing to the  ambassador's vigorous health and  thorough acquaintance with all the  important international questions  in which the two governments are  interested. "���,  To Disenfranchise the Negro.  Annapolis, Maryland, March 7.���  The Democrats secured a quorum  in the senate today and passed the  bill which will disenfranchise '50,000  voters, mostly negroes. The Republicans now concede that the proceedings have been rendered regular  and the new election bill' is fairly  on its way to final passage or defeat.  In the house two adjournments  were taken,in order to permit the  committee on legislation to further  consider the pending measure.  .'���;. Less than 1percent of ^he land  in Norway is in use for grain floldfl.  ^ TSome details of the proposed mo-  tdusvivendr were'sent for   consideration tb St."'Petersburg,   but   no  convention; or .arrangement  with  the contra government of China of  a' permanent  character   was concluded with regard   to Manchuria,  'nor had the emperor any intention  of'departing'in any,way from   the  .assurances he had   publicly   given  that Manchuria would, be entirely  restored to its'former condition in  the Chinese empir&as soon  as  circumstances admittid.  ,  Russia was iu the' same position  with regard to fixing the final date  for evacuation in Manchuria as the  _aIlies^found themselves" in_with regard-to the evacuation of Pekin and  the province of Chi Li. When it  came to .^ the final and complete  'evacuation of Manchuria Russia would be obliged to obtain  from the central government  of China an effective guarantee  against the recurrence of damage  to her railway, but she had no intention of seeking this guarantee  in auy acquisition of territory or  by an actual or virtual protectorate  of Manchuria, her object being sira-  ������piy, to' guarantee the "faithful^ observance in the future by China of  the terms of the agreement which  .she had been unable to fulfill during the'disturbance. The dispatch  concludes by repeating count Lams-  'dorff's ' assurance . that there had  been no alteration of the former  international status of Manchuria,  which would be restored when the  temporary military measures had  ceased, and that;'everything at Niu  Chwang and elsewhere would be  replaced in the former position.  The Hawaiian Legislature.  Honolulu,' March 1, via San  Francisco, March 7.���The legislature  of Hawaii began its sessions in  Honolulu February 20th and has  been iu session since. J. A. Aiken  (Independent) Hawaiian-Chinese  member for the island of'Kauai,  was electod speaker-of ,the house  and Dr. Nicholas Russell of Hawaii,  a white man, was chosen president  of the senate. ' On the third day  secretary of the territory Cooper  was unceremoniously ordered out  of the house and escorted out by.  the sergeant-at-arms. Acting under  the section of the territorial act  which provides that he shall record  and preserve the laws and proceedings of the legislature, secretary  Cooper took a place on the floor of  the house with a stenographer to I  secure a record of the proceedings. I  London, March 8.--*-Whatever negotiations are proceeding in Pretoria, and Mr., Kruger declares they-  can only be for an-armistice, the'  government evidently has no idea  of slackening reinforcements. The  war office issued a detailed statement last evening; of 'transports  that are to sail for 'South1 Africa  "within the coming week with 12,000  troops. ,  The casualty list reveals the'fact  that two officers were killed at  Lichtenberg March ~ 3rd. Lord  Kitchener's telegram.A'Amasendiug  reinforcements," was dated March  Oth. Evidently, therefore, the fighting continued for some days, and  further advices are awaited with  anxiety. : -  According to the Daily'Mail's despatches, general Dewet and Mr.  Steyn have separated, the former  being at Petersburg, west of Bloemfontein, and the latter at Smith-  field.  The progress of ' the bubonic  plague causes deep anxiety and apprehension in Capetown. < The 'Cape  government has decided to remove  the people from one-third of the  city area and to cleanse it. Every  precaution will be taken should the  disease spread to the 'troops. The  Amsterdam correspondent of the  Daily Mail says Mr.. Kruger is informed that Mr. Reitz, former state  secretary of; the Transvaal is suffering from aberration of the mind.  The Times understands that the  remainder of the war.; loan will be  issued in consols, the govenrment  having already issued_as much in  short term loans and bonds as it is  likely to obtain from the, proceeds  of a Transvaal loan.  Capetown, March ,7.���A soldier  employed at the castletlias been  attacked by the bubonic" plague.

The Woodstock paper adds that' the  Oxford boys away. from '.home are  doing more for tlie memorials than  the Oxford boys at home.v  Tub Spokesman-Review has great  faith in James J.' Hill. In a recent  editorial it says!it still' has hope  that Mr. Hill will keep a promise he  made to the people of Spokane nine  years ago. ' This should suggest to  the i people of Kootenay the desirability of having a time limit incorporated in any. promise which  Mr. Hill or his agents may make in  return for > the railway charter iu  East Kootenay. Even nine years-  .   is a long time to wait in the west.  The city council of Hamilton has  presented to the provincial legislature a petition embodying its views  upon municipal rerorm.    It is interesting, to note that the Hamilton  alddrmen turned down the proposition  of aldermanic hold-overs by  which1 only   half  of   the   council  would retire   each   year.   Among  their recommendations was one suggesting that in case of vacancies at  the council board such should be  be filled by the unsuccessful candidate at the last election who secured the highest number of votes;  and- that in case of a vacancy in the  mayor's chair  that   the   office be  filled   from   the members   of   the  council.   It was -further. suggested  that the mayor should hold office  for two years.  Legislation will also  be asked for empowering the coun-  tfilto revise and conjtral ihp esti-  Thb possibility of the absorption  of the Canadian Pacific rail way, ,hy  the United'Sfcates trust, has awakened a great interest in the peor  ple of Canada in the nationalization  of   its railway, lines.-   This   consideration .is,, forced   upon, them  through their conviction'that once  the Canadian railway'passes under  the control of the trust,'it will be  operated   in   connection with, the  greater interests of the trusts,south  of - the international boundary -line,  without respect to the interests of  the Dominion.. And there are not  many who quarrel .with this view,  pr;with,thVflnding that such a con-  I ,di tion would place1 theentire country ���; at **the ���laneroy}- of ''the 'great  'United States trusts "which are now.  working in perfect harmony. What  is "true with,respect to the '.control  iof'. ..Canadians-railways" by-' alien-  trusts, with greater interests in the  United States than' in Canada,' is  likewise true of j the control, of���the(  Canadian,mining,andi>smelting in-1  ���dustryby a trust'which-has in-  ���finitely greater mining and smelting:  "interests in "the" United States than;  in,Canada. . Such trusts.,can*.with-*  out loss to themselves successfully'  manipulate   the lesser interest to  the advantage of'the greater,' and  for a time, even sacrifice the lesser  for the greater.'. Canada's remedy i  to protect its'-transportation lines, j  through their purchase,  would, bei  expensive, but it is a problem which'  Canada _will\probably,,'be   called;  upon-to face. iBut Canada's remedy!  toprotect its mining and smelting ^  industry presents no sucn difficulties. ���  All   depends    upon   the   manner  in( which it" shapes its railway pol-j  icy for the' future; since it is <only  with the assistance of railway feed-  'ei'Srdrawing off���necessary fu'eland  and fluxes, that any successful assault can be made >upon thisall-imj  por tan t British-r Columbia industry.  Freedom of trade may admit of' excellent reasoning, but freedom of  trade has never yet built up any  industry in Canada which had to  meet competition from the United  States.   Freedom-of railway, construction   may, appeal  strongly to  Eastern Canadians who who, have  contributed millions~of dollars for  the building of private' railways  but freedom of railway construction in British Columbia will shut  out all hope, of British Columbia  ever   establishing   its lead-mining  industry upon an independent basis.  Such a policy would enable the lead  trust to purchase such ores as it  desired at its own price, and would  render   practically valueless ' such  ores as it did not require; the lead  mine-owers would be virtually the  servants of an alien trust.   This i s  not a condition to  be desired; but  it is a condition which may be expected if the  United States lead  trust, through its ally, the United  States railway trust, gains an entrance into the coal fields of East  Kootnay.  Free Press fails to explain. Every  man-and boy ih Fernie is dependent  upon the Fernie coal company, and  when every man and boy in Fernie  laughs, and when the oflicers of the  company in Toronto laugh, the only  inference is that there is unity of  purpose up to a certain point.  ���    ���   ��� ������  Bouiiassa has ^broken loose again  at Ottawa with a notice to move a  resolution declaring for the independence of the Boer republics,  and against the enlistment of any  further troops in Canada for service  in South Africa. But there is no  commotion at Ottawa. They set it  all down to a Boer ass and let it go  at that. ���   The Nelson Miner questions  whether an increase of forty per  cent in 'the output of its > mines is a  noticeable measure of progress in  the development -of the mineral  resources of the province. Having  twice announced the demise of- the  industry, inc connection with the  eight-hour law and the output tax,  the Miner-is not so far astray as it  mighjtfbe.  *  7 Supreme C-dtirt Judge Killed.  ^^MANAGUA^Nicaragua/ March -7.���  Judge If'Mesa of ���' tbe Nicaragua  supremercourt was killed yesterday  at- Granada by;,, Senor , Lacavos,  whose father was. well known in  Nicaraguan affairs.    _  *T.V  -flfxao nmnnnmimiiiininiiuimni  .
