I_ONDON, October 28.—The November
number of the National Review will contain an article advocating the establishment of an alliance between England and Russia mainly for the purpose
ot counteracting the alleged serious hostility of Germany toward Great Britain.
The article is written, anonymously but
the Associated Press is in apposition to
state that it is the "joint contribution of
■•writers who not only thoroughly understand the, subject, but are on intimate
terms with the members of the cabinet,
though the National Revi.w distinctly
disowns any inspiration for the article.
"Under the title of "British Foreign
Policy," the article flrst of all asserts
that the "Naval policy and avowed hostility of Germany, to which even the
British official world" can no longer remain blind, will force us to keep"on a
fair footing in the North sea a fleet as
xV powerful and eflicient as the Mediter-
rean or channel squadrons." Dealing
with Germany's part, in the intrigues
Against England consequent ,upon the
South •- African war, .it,is' 'stated that
neither the' United States, Japan, Aus-
'tria nor Italy have" at, any time'been
even remotely implicated in these intrigues. The, real origin of the South
African -war was "the ,waut of a, clear
and definite policy m that part of the
nvorld," and-this statement is followed
by a review of colonial unity in which
Goldwin Smith's work, "The^Empire,"
published in. 1863, when the--author was
rcgius professor *of history at Oxford, is
lefeired to as follows: "A book which
was received at^the time with no little
approval, not only "advocating the'disruption "of the British empire, but .actually advising'the surrender.ot important
military positions? jt is yet"pYofita'ble tb
Tread the obsolete language of a*-learned
professor, if only to _ note how cruelly
•events" hastened to stulify his prophesies
and to derive entertainment from the
self-opinionated insistence-with which
he announced the decline of,conquering
tendencies among" nations." The interesting statement is made that in 1873
Mi. Gladstone told one of the writers
of the article that he "considered it
would be a grand thing for England if
she could get rid of her-.colonies, and
, lie quoted sir George Cornwall" Lewis,
who passed for a sagacious man, as be-
'ing of the same opinion.". Reverting
irom colonial to foreign policy, the ai title forcibly traces ihe growing hostility
to England with a careful appreciation
of Germany's growing naval and commercial strengtli.aud says: - "She is al-
i cady stronger at sea than either France
of Russia." Buelow's avowed contempt
for England is shown by quotations
from his recent speeches. "It is galling
— io Englishmen.^-tbese-writers .tate-"to
jeflect that Germany was rewarded foi
attempting to raise Europe agamsL us
by an Anglo-German agreement securing
to Germany the reversion of valuable
territory to which she had no sort of
claim."   '
Tbe ill feeling existing between Russia and England has, it is declared,
teen perpetually fostered at Berlin,
•Yet "ol all tho countries in the world
the power.which would have most reason to rue the substitution of Germany
for Great Britain ar. mistress of the sea
would te Russia. If once the sea pow<.i
of England wero ovei thrown, Germnny
would be free Oto execute her hostile
policy towards Ru&sia, who is now less
in her way than we arp. Thero is an
idea growing steadily amongst the Germans that Germany should expand into un empire branching from the Bosph-
crus to the Peisian gulf. Thus would
territories be secured enjoying an excellent climate to which ihe surplus
stream of German people which now
flows to the United Slates and to the
British empire might be diverted without being lost to the German flag This
is by r.o means a new ide^; it is the revival of the old idpa and it means ol
course the supremacy of Germany 'in
the fat east and the supercesf-ion of the
Slav for the Teuton. Such is the objective of these ambitious dreamers known
as the Pan-Germanic League, a body
most terderly regarded hy the German
'government, and it embodies a policy
as antagonistic to Russia ok the German xaval rrestrain is hostile to England." No unsuTnountablo difficulties
it is held, prevents Russia ond England
arriving at a basis of mutual undor
standing The late emperor Alexander
% expressed his desire for &uch a settlement and the present emperor is credited with the same disposition. Individual cases of trouble and even treachery
between England aud Russian diplomats have, it ib admitted, occurred, br-t
"we doubt whither ir the whole rang3
of diplomacy in the course of it it would
be possible to point to the behaviour
of one great rower to another, moro au-
daciouslv cynical in its dislovaltv than
the conduct of Grrmany to England
over what count Vcn Buelow hp.s be. n
rlca. ed to christer the 'Yang Tse agreement,' except, rtrbaps, lhe treason of
Rutsia or her allies on the occasion of
■the pea.ee treaty at Basel." The recent
incident at Kowelt is taken as a strik
ing in.tance of Germany's dislike of
England, for it is alleged that "Germany
was undoubtedly egging on the sultan
of Turkey" in his endeavor to establish
a protectorate at Kowelt. Tho lrsystone
of British policy in the far* east is ia
friendly understanding and co-operation with Japan,' but that being "recognized there is nothing to prevent this
couutry from supporting a i.ettlement
of Manchurian and Korean questions 'on*
lines which would .be, regarded as fairly
satisfactory both in St.' Petersburg and
in Tokio. If the Korean, question were
regularized, Japan would have" considerably less reason to apprehend Russian
sihemes, and . Russia,' on her .„ part,
might devote herself to devloping her
far eastern dominions/without interruption from Japan. Russian statesmen
have to make up their minds whether,,
in the present condition'of Russian industries, Russian agriculture and Russian finance, a friendly understanding
with England wliich would relieve her
anxieties in the far east, and which
might result in her being, able to continue her trarfs Caucasian and Siberian railways to the shores of the Persian gulf, and whieh, last JLuit, not least,
might enable her to carry cut^her historic mission in the Balktris^ Is not
worth a high price. •. , /
' On these bases the suggestions for an
Anglo-Russian understanding are submitted:,  ', ( j '   • ,-   \*
1. Ii regard to'tho near east the,rfbas1 s
would be thnt while** Russia abstained
from any attempt to interfere with the
status-'quo'in Egypt.iwe should frankly
recognize that^the fulfillment .of*what
Ru&sia regards as her historic mission
in the' Ball-ton" peninsula "conflicts" with
no vital British interests, and., that in
Asiatic Turkey wc should abstain from,
favoring the deve'opment qf German
schemes of expansion.
2. With regard to persia'and Central
Asia we might-offer Russia our co-operation in the development ,of railway
communication -between .the"* Caspian
and the --Persian' gulf ■< and "in < securing
for her a commercial cutlet on the gulf
in return for an undertaking- on. the.
part of Russia to resnect th<> political
_tatus quo along the' shores ef the gulf
and ,to. recognize our .protectorate over
Afghanistan. - - v ->   ,
f 3. With"; regard -to the' far east the
question^ is necessarily more1* complicated, as Japan "would have to be taken
into-the councils of the two" empires
and a basis of agreement '■ arrived at
\vhich would satisfy her as well as Russia and Great Britain In" a. far as
Japan is^ concerned the^ basis-might be
found in-the recognUi6n*by*Russi_.iaiid
England of the Japanese claim to an ey-
^clu.ive' sphere^ of influeice in Corea.
'"Jap an-would presumably "in -return for
1 this 'concession have no objection to a,

Gr,eat Britain, Russia and Japan would
agree' to take nor steps "without1 mutual

a Jparty to such an - agreement would
give-.France a guarantee that her interests wouldjbe taken'into'due consideration, .while "our particpation-would afford-a-natural- safeguard to the-comrner-
cial interests of tho Lnited States. <rThe
effect of such an agreement,'a"ccompan-
ied by • the * customary ' demonstrations
"in^such cases,- publi-declarations by the
-sovereigns and . tneir official representatives and "an™ exchange' of1* views by
their respective fleets would remove the
danger of sudden explosion which must
continue to hang over th*1 whole world,
so long as the far oast remains th'e
powder magazine of international rivalry and conflicting interests which it
is nt present.
"The natural consequence of this understanding wculd he that in the event

In event of war between Great Britain
and Germany Russia would remain neutral. Russia would no longer give cause
for suspicion that she was actuating
France to make war agairst us, as

WASHINGTON^ D C, October 28 —
The cross-examination of admiral* Schley
began today before the court of inquiry
and hardly the third ground was covered
whenrthe court adjoined at,4 pn. After
admiraKSchley concludes two other witnesses will be called on his belialf—admiral Baiker and admiral Thomas Borden. The <* latter was-an ofllcer of the
marine corps aboard thVBiooklyn The

.Friday last when admiral Schley.told.the
story of the battle of Santiago;5 showed
unabated  interest  in  the" proceedings.
Nothing sensational developed'and the"
only outburst   in   the .court   occurre'd
when Mr. Raynor, admiral Schley's counsel, objected' to a line of •inquiry of 'th'e
judge advocate designed to criticise'admiral Schley's alleged failure" to formulate' the plan of battle, with the dec-'
^laration that as admiral Sampson "was
in command his junior had no right to
plan an order of battle.   Admiral'Schley.
concluded1'his  direct  examination  this
"morning*with a statement of the effect
of fire on the respective vessels at San-'
tiago, showing that 36 per cent of hits
suffered by' the enemy were scored' by
-the Brooklyn's five-inch guns, while'his
3hip received 70 per cent of the hits from
•the  Spani-h   ships.    Captain   Lemley(s
cross-examination was very searching.
Admiral  Schley, however, 'appeared" to
-be  unruffled  throughout  the' oxamina-
caslons' that   he   could   riot' remember
little details after   the   lapse   of   three
years.    One line of inauiry which theJ
judge advocate tried to  press   to  show
'that admiral   Schley   did   not   proceed
' "with dispatch" from Key West to Cienfuegos, bv attempting _ to  contrast' the
speed made between Charleston and Key
West with the time between Key West
•and Cienfuegos, was curtailed by a decision of the courtAf.which confined the
- question to the tinj^ suhseqiient to May
19th, the day on wliich the flying squadron left Key West'   The judge advocate
in his cross-examination dwelt upou the
interview between admiral Sampson and
commander Schley at Key West, before
the departure of the flying squadron, at
which the latter testified that admiial
Sampson instructed him not to expose
his ships to  shore  batteries   until   the
Spanish fleet had  been destroyed, and
the fact that admiral Schley issued no
written older of battle or the question
of coaling off Cienfuegos and.the step's

suggested' that  the' council should resolve  itself 'into   a   committee  of  the

was at present in the committee stage
This was assented ,to and the eouncU
weni ii'to committee with alderman
Selous in'the'chair: Some objection was
raised by,' alderman Irving and Gillett
to accepting, the clauses.of the deal in
committee without having time to .consider them, but the, mayor explained
that it was merely to gain-,'time. The
clauses could be discussed and as Mr
Campbell was present explanations
could be-had from'him as'the differert
clauses wero taken up. It'was not proposed to advance the, by-law ,beyond,

ting 'of' the council and' if desirable it
could be recommitted. 'The clauses were
then mn i through; ,alter -which Mr
Campbell was invited, to , address the
ccuncil.  -
Mr. Campbell in his remarks said the
council already had his' terms for tho
power and he had no changes to make
in them. HoJ added, however, that he
had a deal pending for, the sale of liOO
horse power and for this* reason he did
not wish to givo the council ar option on
300 horse power for a'preater period
than fourteen days. With respect'to 150
horse power it would always be available. . .,,

Alderman Selous then asked whether
the minimum, could, not be,reduced and,
an arrangement made for the purchase
of power by the month!1 To'this portion of the inquiry Mr. Campbell did
not give a direct-answer, but he said
the company ,would be put. to an expenditure of $7000 or $8000 and it would
not be good business to go to this expense for a" ibuslness which could be

Alderman   Selous   directed   atten tiou
to ttio fact that the option of the   city
to-reontiiuo' the   pgreement   with    the
power company, foraflve years had b. ion
cut out. This, he said, left the mati'-er
in the nature of an'agreement whhVn
had to be mutually agrepd to at the
end of each year in'order to carry it on,.
, Mayor , Fletcher    then. ( asked , Mr1.
.Campbell.if he .would;noti,agreewto cut
"the'minim urn down to'100 horse* power,
but Mr. Camrbell declined. He said he
had)- made  an arrangement -with-'the

he'succeeded in making terms with "the
'city'ho would relieve "ihe tramway com-
• pany from' having to 2 look' after * the

•had had - several talks, with - the, tram •
^way company,and he had been informed
'that the company intended to suspend

made in' its 'operating expenses.  "   ' ,
•Alderman  Selous  asked  Mr.v Campbell, how it would work in;case the city
rwanted .100 horse power throughout'the
year, but'for"a couple of months^ took
200 horse power. His'idea was1 that for
the 'months'of- January 'and 'February
.while'the water was low.^the city would
require more power ihan for, the rest^of
the-year. There was a long discussion
"bVer' the matter. In' the 'first instance,
'Mr/Campbcll'said'ho would-not-tie his.
company up -to -supply /power r for two
.months ii  the year, -,but eventually- he
agreed to a minimum and .maximum arrangement, the city to undertake to pay
'for-150 horse power and the company;tp
'hind itself to reserve an' extrai50 horse
jpower to be paid for by(ithe city ,as it
■might be'used.,c . ,   , ,    ,  ,      " if      j
Alderman   Selous   asked , the   mayor
'whether he' had received any proposi-
ition-from the gas'eompanyftuv the supply-) of ,power. Thet mayor^. replied that
he,had received a counle,"of^communications' from the gas "company"/ but a$\
yet.no propositioni bad been received.
' Tho' quest'on then came uptas to when
the* council' should meet again'-for'the
,'furtherV consideration 'of, Hhe   proposi-,
t {ion. r. The •■ mavor  suggested it an' - early'
^meeting, jtut alderman.. Irving-said he'
would^ like (at least a week to consider
ktlie* proposition'. 'Mayor' \ Fletcher   re-'
'sented'this -\ery strongly''and "from the
tone < of his remarks it was.easy to sec
that ;he -.was somewhat „sore«over' the'
way his scheme had fallen through. He
;said"the mattei  was'^takeri up_ in the]
first "place for tbe purpose of securing'
additionar.<power,'-but the council ha'd
;backed and.Allied on every proposition
that hadrcome up. So,far as he was concerned**!^ said'he'did not-care-whether,
the city'got any-more .lights or not.
He thought that the council should take
the question up and either do something
.or fIso drop it altogether. If it was ;not
' the intention'of 'the 'council to dosom-j-
thinglt'was useless to* bring in by-laws
for consideration. He said the members
of the ccuncil *. were,,.simply making a
fool, of ,the   council. and   of   himself
with   7the   people. ' What   he   wanted
was the taking'of the matter up or the
dropping of it.
Aldorman Selous counseled the mayor
to have patience. He admitted that the
progress made was disappointing, but
the council meant wen. The percentage
arrangement had fallen through and
another'proposition had'heen submitted.
He was free to1 confess that it appeared
to him to be a hard one. It was a de3-
nite, offer, however, of ?50 per horsu
,I3ower, ,-arid_he=. understood—ihcre-^-was
to be an offer from the gas company.
The city required the power and it
should purchase lit in the cheapest market This was the way the matter suggested itself to him.
Major Fletcher intimated that the
suggestion" of the gas company was one
that could not be entertained by the
council. The power would' cost over $50
per hcrse power and it could not be installed inside of twelve months, so that
it would not be available
After S'.mo further 'discussion alderman Paterson said he -thought the city
would require power for 1000 additional
lights,   taking   into   consideration   tho
overlorded   condition  of  the  machines
and tho new lights applied for. This was
the only hint as to what the-power re-
.quii-ments of the city were. Upon tho
question    of ; adjournment^, alderman
Selous', sugested' 'Wednesday   evening,
but alderman Irving held out for an ad-
' journment  bf  a !week/ He  moved  an
■amendment to  this? 'effect,: which  was

Czolgosz Sullenand Defiant.
'V AUBURN, New 'Vork,. October. "28.-^-
Czolgosz held his last two interviews
'tonight,', the rfirst',with (superintendent-
Coll_i_s;and the second'/with" his brother,
arid" brother-in-law. BotWthe--interviews
were .brief and. the interviewersl did
most of the talking until"-the question
,v   ■   -n-r    i t     <       " i    .-     "   -r.
of religion was mentioned, when Czolgosz'broke' from his seeming',lethargy
andv-*violently denounced the church and
the clergy and made his relatives promise'that'there should be no service foV
-him [living or dead. Beiore the late interviews the prisoner, reluctantly received the priests.j It was late in the
^fterribon^arid^occurred'aftei he had once
refused "to meet" them. When they
reached the prison superintendent Col--
lins conveyed the'request for an interview to the prisoner. Czolgosz sent back
word that he did not care to see them,
but the priests asked' to be allowed to
go to him despite his refusal. Superintendent Collins consented'and personally escorted them to his cell. • The
pi tests remained with Czolgosz for three-
quarters * of an hour and earnestly
pleaded with the prisoner to repent and
pray for divne forgiveness. Ho rejected all their advances, however, and
they regretfully withdrew. They told
the prisoner they would hold themselves ready to answer a call from him
at any hour of night. It was 7 o'clock
when superintendent Collins went into
the death house and tried' to got the
prisoner to talk to him. Althougn he
apparently not successful in getting anything material from him. At 8 o'clock
the brother and brother-in-law arrived and superintendent Collins took
them down to the condemned man's cell.
There was no demonstration when they
met. Czolgosz merely stepped to the
fiont of the steel cage and said' "Hello."
The brother ventured the remark, "I
wish you would tell us, Leon, who got
you into this scrape?" The assassin
answered in a slow, hesitating manner,
"No oue; r.obodv had anything to do
with it .but me."
"That is not how you were brought
up." said tho brother, "and you ought
to tell us everything now."
" I have got nothing to tell," he answered in a sullen manner. "Do you
want to see the priests again?" asked
his brother. Ho. answered with -more
vehemence thanv ho had previously
shown, "No, damn them, don't send
them here again. I don't want them.",
Tho brother-in-law . interjected here.
. "That's right, Leon." The brother looked rather disturbed by the answer. Then
stepping up close to'the bars, the condemned man said: "And don't you have
any.praying over me when I'm dead. I
don't want any of-.'their-* damned religion." There was a painful pause of a
few minutes and then the relatives resumed ; the conversation with him to
which he replied in monosyllables until
the brother-in-law"'suggested, much, to
superintendent Collins' surprise, that lie
and his brother be present to witness
the execution. -
Before superintendent Collins coulil
reply Leon Czolgosz said, "Yes, .Mr. superintendent let them see me killed."
Superintendent Collins told the trio in
emphatic terms that no such thing could
be allowed and ordered them to say
good-bye. Czolgosz walked to the back
of his cell, sat down pn the. edge of his
cot arid did not answer the last farewell.

There is hardly a family in Canada that has not one  of its members in The States. During  the civil war, thousands of young Canadians went to The States to fill the demand for labor caused by the drafts to  fill' the  Union armies.  Since the war  closed,  thousands have been attracted  thereI'because of the cheap lands in the  West.   Of  late  years  thousands  havo  emigrated because wages are higher in  The States; than in Canada., Canada has  been losing her sons and daughters to  The States, and the losses are not being  replaced.'She ' will   keep   on  suffering  such losses just as long as her employers of labor refuse tc pay as high wago  as are paid in The States. Then, again,  Canada has but the home' market for  5,000,000 people; the United States has  the. homo 'market ��� for 70,000,000. These  70,000,000     are     Americans     all     the  time;     aggressive,    enterprising,    and  proud of,their country and its achievements.  The United  States to them is  the" greatest nation' on earth. Canada's  5,000,000 people are not even Canadians  in'name; they are Britishers. Many of  them have no sympathy for Canada or  Canadian institutions; all .their sympathies are for the motherland across the  sea. Canada will never be a great country until she cuts loose from the mother's apron strings, and makes up her  mind to make this great northland a  nation with a cap N.  When The Tribune stated that Bernard McDonald, manager of the Le Roi  mine at' Rossland, and Bela Kadish,  manager of the Le Roi smelter at North-  port, would have tp go, the statement  was Jaug-.ed at by the element in Nelson  who believe McDonald is a superior be;"'  ing, not at all amenable to' ordinary-  business-usages'. Both these, men have  been conif-elled toi hand ir_ their resignations, and both resignations have been  accepted. -This does not mean that the  management of the Le Roi mine and  smelter:-will make peaee with their late  employees; * but it means" that the' new  management, can not have any personal  111, wilFagainst'th'e old employees of .the  mining and smelting companies. This  fact -alone- counts for much' in disputes  between labor and capital. When* no'  personal antaghisms exist between em-.,  ployer and .employee, disputes can be  much more easily adjusted than when  such antagonisms exist. 'The Tribune  predicts that tho trouble "ait Rossland  will be settled to the mutual satisfaction of the mine workers and. the mine  management within the1 next thirty days,  and that once the settlement' is made  there will be no more.labor difliculties  at Rossland's mines' or- ii_ Kootenay-  and Yale mining camps for many a long  day.     ���   ; >    ,-.      -      -   '  TELEPHONE 30.'

The Rossland Liberals are ,a trifle  '"sore" because the Nelson Liberals took  the initiative in-calling the attention of  the' party to the necessity of contesting  the next provincial' election on ��� party  -lines���They-claim-the^Nelson-Liberals  are not entitled to the credit that is being given them; that the credit should  oe given to doctor Sinclair of Rossland,  ihe would-be senator and all-round  Poe-Bah. The doctor has not. been long  enough in the province to. know  whether he lives in East or West Kootenay, or whether the Columbia -river  flews north' or south. The only fight he  has taken part in was .the recent one to  keep the party from putting itself on  record as favoring the impartial enforcement of all.tht- laws of Canada. This  goes to show that doctor Sinclair is unfit for party preferment, and unworthy  of being classed as a party leader.  Nelson Saw & Planing Mills  Xji_vrio:_-_3_D- \r"  .

The Victoria Post, the one-time personal organ of tho chief commissioner  of lands and works, but a journal that  is now bitterly opposed to the Dunsmuir  government, has questioned the motives  that actuated every member of the legislature who opposed the V. V. & E. subsidy scheme. , The members who opposed that outfit were all C. P. R. or  Dunsmuir hirelings; were base betrayers  of the Interests of the people; were  mossbacks who wanted to keep the provinco as a preserve for the biggest monopoly inCanada; in fact, according to  the Post, triey were everything that was  real bad. When the motives of some of  the members who favored the V. V. &  E. subsidy scheme were questioned, the  horse was of another color. All such  allusions are called "virulent personal  attacks." People who throw mud should  not squeal when they are hit with snowballs.    Moral Suasion Permissible.  At Chicago, judge Kohlsaat, of tho  United States circuit court, has modified his injunction order against  members of the International Association of Machinists in the Allis-Chalmers  case. Upon matuer consideration he now  recognizes that peaceful picketing and ���  tho influencing ol workmen Jtxy moral  * suasion are not illegal'acts and that to  restrain the   strikers   from^ employing  these means in their own behalf is not  within the power of the court. ' At the  same time he rpecially bars' in his injunction order all acts of violence or  threats-tending to"intimidation.  "Peace-;  ful picketing may easily run into intimidation,   as   judge   Kohlsaat   remarked  to the counsel for the Machinists'Association, but the only proper course of  action would then be to let each-case  stand on its own'merits.    During  the  past summer .the courts have taken, a  long step in advance of anything previously known in the matter of granting  injunctions.   On a number of occasions  in connection fith disputes between em-'  ployers and their men judges have arrogated to themselves authority not only  to create offenses not known to the statutes, but virtually to convict large or-  _ganizations_of_workmen.of.these.offensesT  in anticipation of, their commission.   In  the absence of specific laws they haVe  virtually assumed powers of legislation  and in the absence of criminal prosecution against individual  members  they  have taken to themselves the right to  act as judge and jury and pass blanket  sentences upon the entire membership  of an association.    It is well that a  magistrate of the   eminence   of   judge  Kohlaat should insist upon a return to  the regular forms   of  law.   There   are  ample legal means for dealing with disorder  and  intimidation . and   violence.  Even If there were not, it is not within  the power of theorists on the bench to  create them.   When they attempt to do  so they ursurp authority which belongs  only to the law-making branch of the  government, and under cover of the law  encourage Its  violation. ��� Philadelphia  North American.  r  "A'bad workman  quarrels with his  tools."

COPENHAGEN, October 28.���The deliberation in the negotiations between  the government and L. S. Swenson, the  United States minister, with regard to  the sale of the Danish West Indies is  attributed to the influence of a member  of the royal family closely connected  with the commercial interests which  started the agitation against the sale.

At the closing session'of the annual  synod of the Church of England, held at  New Wesmmster last week, the following is the business done that most inteiests the members of the Chuich in  ICootonay.  A very lengthy and animated discussion ai ose over a 1 esomtion 'offered by  Ven. Archdeacon Pentreath asking that  % .permission should le given to the dio-  - cese^of Kootenay to canvass In eastern  Canada, aiter a thorough canvass had  been made in the parishes of the diocese  It seems that, when Kootenay was sepa-  lated fiom the diocese of New Westmin-  Eter, an agreement was reached tnat the  new diocese should not forestall the old  one in canvassing eastern Canada for  the endowment of its sec It was to be  l el eased from this agreement tbat the  archdeacon made his request. The pi op-  osition was warmly discussed by Mr  Walter Taylor, Rev H G Fiennes-Clin-  ton, Rev. H. J. Undei hill, Rev. L. N.  Tucker, Rev. M. Jukes, and others. Mr.  Taylor said he thought that it was  hardly fair that New Westminster  should stand in the way of Kootenay  seeing the later had been idle for tlnee  years in regard to its own endownment.  1-Ie understood that the agreement was  made somewhat undor pressure, and now  the way should be left clear for Koot-   enay-to act 43n_the_other_hand _it_was.  urged that the diocese of Kootenay had  folded its arms since the separation,  and had not raised a dollar on its own  account, and now that definite andv vigorous action was about to be taken in  this diocese, it would prjeudic* the interests of the same, to have eastern  Canada canvassed before it had an opportunity of doing so.  Two amendments were offered with a  view of meeting the ��iti.iation, "as there  was a strong feeling that the sister diocese should not be impeded in its laudable ambition.0But neither amendment  seemed to meet the case, and both were  negatived And th-�� same fate awaited  the"main motions. The conditions of the  two dioceses'remain as they were. It is,  however, considered imssible that tlie  executive committees of Kootenay and  New Wesminster may be able to adjust  the matter.  Rev. James A. Elliott moved, seconded  * by Rey.^L.N..Tucker, that in view of the  vast orgihizailon of capital on tho one  hand and labor on the other, and the  consequent differences arising between  employers and employees, in respect to  tlieir mutual rights and duties, and in  consideration of tlie;fact that these questions and. conditions strongly affect the  people of this; province, be it resolved  that this . syrod take steps to inform  Itself upon'these matters with a view to1  rendering * some real assistance to our  fellow-citizens in their attempt to reach  an equitable adjustment of their difficulties and that to this end a committee be  appointed to study the question- arid  make such 'recommendation: asP may recommend themselves to J.heir judgment.  His lordship Bishop Dart named the following a committee on tlie above: Rev.  James A.: Elliott'(cenverier), Rev. L. N.  ���Tucker, Rev,:H. G. Fiennes-Clinton, G.  ���'W.'Sarel of Kamloops, A.

The letters show  plainly how strained during the entire  period of occupation were the relations  Ibetweeh the ; French general and the  commander-in-chief of J.he allies. Tho  publication, remarks the correspondent,  is significant because'it must be with  the consent of general Voyron or some  authorized colleague of that general.  The first letter upholds the French  right to protect Catholic missions,  wnich count Von Waldersee contested.

On Thursday  one evening paper gave a .list of rhe  burglanes which had been committed in  a few days in a single section with the  heading "What Burglars Are Doing  While the Tammany Police Sleep.". Another paper the same'day said: ^"Reports  of holdups and robberies are'the rulo  rather than the exception. It is a fact  that the police have orders not to make,  arrests between now and election unle.s��  absolutely compelled to do so." Th'jn  follow details of a number of cases nf  crime down town. In one case the vit'  tim shouted for the help of a policeman  who was twenty-five yards away, but  -the officer tnrned-aud-walked-in^an-op-  posite direction. A morning newspaptn  yesterday prirted a column article  headed* "Assaults, Theft and Even Murders Fail to Move the Police." It is said  that If the complaints of the crimi's  committed on Park Row made to policemen were only reported at the stations, the thoroughfare would be shown  to be as vile a resort as the Five Points  during its most evil days. Then follows  detaifed long lists of recent robberies  on Park Row.  Last Steamers From Nome.  PORT TOWNSEND, October 28.���Two  steameis have arrived fiom Nome bringing over^ 1000 passengers. The Senator  brings 525 and the Garronne* 700.; * Tlie  Senator sailed from Nome October 19th  with $500,000 in gold. For several days  before sailing snow was falling, ice  formed and preparations were being  made for a long, cold winter. The  Queen, the Valencia and .the Roanoke  will be the last steamers from Nome.  They will bring about 2000 people and  'there',, are many more who would return  if transportation could be secured, besides a large number of destitute who;  will be compelled to remain at Nome  and face, an Arctic winter dependent  upon charity. '      :    .       ;,  The telegraph line between St. Michael  and Fort Gibbon on theTanana has been  completed and is in working order.  Judge Wickers has rendered an ;opiriion  which does not give general satisfaction  to the miners. In the decision he sus-.  tains the original locators arid declares  that-the miners' rules and regulations  are inoperative when they assumes to  override or are In conflict with the mining laws of the United States.

this exhibit can fully appreciate tho care

shown in its arrangement, and the
courtesy shown to interested visitors by
the gentlemen in charge. We are sure
that many who saw the display made at
Buffalo went away with much better
ideas of tlie resources of Ontario and the
possibilities, ,of future development in
the province than they ever had before.
The^' mines. department deserves the
highest credit,for the exhibit. IL is to
be regretted that other provinces of the

i ' In- his latest report- to the, Canadian'
Mining Institute, secretary B. .A^T. Bell-
says:    "Coincident with .a^ great expan-
.sion in mineral development iri Canada
vthere has -naturally -been a correspondingly heavy "trade in supplying minesf,
.mills and smelters with.mining machinery, and supplies, a 'business in ,which
our Canadian manufacturers havo .mor|_
Ithan'h'eld their own. Th'e-manufacture
;of many'lines ";of high, class" mining ma-,
chinery has grown rapidly-during ;the
last few years, and "today '* we have
throughout the Dominion^ a number of
large establishments -which in paint of
engineering skill, equipment, and.capacity to. turn out good 'work,. will >com,-
pare-favorably with the-large-works of
cur enterprising neighbors across the
line. Naturally, we-are not yet able to
'till all the varied requirements of > our
mines and smelters, and very large trade
is done with the United States and other
countries, as a reference to the following
official statistics of the imports during

-A bail will be given this evening at
the Phair hotel, under the auspices of
the Nelson 'Boating Club. Tho committee in charge claim the dance- will
be a great success. It is not an invitation dance, but one in which the 'man
with woollen socks can have just as
good a time as the gentleman with silk
stockings. The proceeds will be used to
help place the club In a position to successfully carry out the great regatta
that is to be held here next year. Tickets
can be had from members of the committee or at the hotel.
The board of managers of the Ciori-
grcgational church have accepted the
resignation of William Munroe as pastor of the church. The differences be-f
tween Mr. Munroe and the members of
the congregation have been of some
standing and were very largely the outcome of the stand which the pastor took
upon social and trade questions. The
resignation has been in the hands of the
managers since August, but at c meeting held on Saturday evening tho pastor pressed ior action upon the resignation with the result that it was accepted. It is likely that Mr. Munroe will
continue to officiate until his successor
is appointed by the home mission board
of the church in Montreal. It is understood that thfe board of managers will
ask the mission board to raise the sti-.
