For self preservation he was foiced to  keep the secret of his prison e^penence  during the period which elapsed between  his tiamping t into Columbus footsore  andlpenmless, twenty yeais ago, with  his cobbler's kit -.lung over his back  the piesent, when he has a foi tune  Half a dozen only knew his life Some  gave him then friendship and suppoit  Others saw iu -.his secret a means of  blackmail. Secure at last in his standing m the business world, he himself  is lesponsiblo for giving to.the'woiid  the story of his past.

One night a  tiaveler told Ijnn of a scahdal which had  stined Cataract The storekeeper had  attacked tho character of his pretty  s.xt een-year-old cousin. The vilhage  liad waited for the father-to defend his  daughter's chaiacter, but tho postmaster*  did not Wolfe went to the i escue. The  storekeeper threatened him." Wolfe  drew his revolver.- Halt a-do;.en loafers  ���attacked him Some one hit him .with-a  club, but he fought until insensible, and  -was" kicked into 'the stieetv.He was  taken to ins uncle's home.. That night  the storekeeper and his "friends sui-  rcunded the house. They demanded  that Wolfe bo turned over to them He  defended himself and flied at .random  into the crowd He was overpowcitG  and taken to the county .ail He was  charged with assault to kill.

Without money or fnends he accepted and the  next week entered Jeffeisonville pn_ou  lor five >ears. He was placed in the shoe-  making ! department. Armed with his  piifaon-gaincd knowledge of manufactui-  mg shoes by machinery, he came to Columbus upon his release and began repairing shoes He prospered, started a  shop and is now worth a million  Twenty_years aftei ,weai y of the mach-  another slaughter of American troops by  insurgents has been avoided. It seems  that lieutenant Baines discovered a prisoner re-entering a cell at Calbiga, island  ot Samar, where several were confined,  through a hole that had been made in  tho wall. An investigation showed a plan  to All the jail with bolomen and to call  the guard, which would be necessary to  get the door open, and then to. attack  tho gan ison. It also developed that the  instigators were a priest and tho presi-  donte, both of whom have been arrested,  together with several prominent persons. Other attempts have been' discovered, but fortunately frustrated, at  Parabujan and other places in Samar.  Several persons have been arrested in  connection with these Reinforcements  aro being rushed to Samar. Three hundred and thirty marines under lieutenant colonel M. C. Goodrell have gone  there on boai d the United States cruiser  New Yoik and two battalions of the  Twelfth infantry will stait immediately  for the same destination.

His cousin, the innocent cause  of his trouble, lies m a quiet counLij  church-yard at Cataract. While she  lived his lips were sealed Now he feels  at liberty lo defend himself.

U Game's N��vel Propositions  LONDON, October 20.���Hall Caine has  consented to become   a   candidate   for  the Manx,  Isle of Man, parliament in  hehalf of the town of Ramsay.   His opponent is a local lawyer.   Mr. Caine's  address has created consternation even  among his own supporters, for he advocates sweeping changes that might well  ,be planks in a national platform of some  great lefoim party.    Fust ot all, Mi  Caine wants to nationalize the steamship service connecting the Isle of Man  with England, running it without profit,  Then applies himself to the Manx steam  and street railways and would apply the  same radical system to them. Land must  must be treated m a somewhat similar  manner, the Manx parliament controlling drainage, cultivation and tree planting.   The banks, of course, are included  in his nationalization scheme, by which  Mr. Caine believes that such financial  scandals as occurred m the. Isle vof Man  .last year would be avoided.   Mr.-..Caine.  justifies the apparently unprofitable national undertaking by pointing put that  the ���primary: factor- in Manx's prosperity.  Is the island's popularity as a holiday report and that it must prosper or. decline  as it meets the needs .of- the visitors.

This is shown by the characteristic explanation which he ' has made of the  difficulty and delay in settling the  claims of the membeis of the Inipenal  Yeomaniy. Proofs of identity have be\i  indispensable and "a few additional  clerks are expected to clear up all the  arrears-bfthe^businessr Mr ."Broderick  can reoiganize the army on a puiely  imaginati.e basis, filling out the papei  schemes with recruits who have not enlisted and appointing ab fighting gea-  erals officers who cannot be allowed to  conduct a campaign, but when asked  for back pay for veterans who have  served their time he is a stickler lor  legularlty and demands absolute proofs  of identity.

Lord Salisbury is not expected to  speak before the Guild Hall banquet,  and the cabinet is not likely to meet until November.  JUDICIAL   APPOINTMENTS.  The judicial appointments have been  left in the lord' chancellor's hands and  are highly acceptable' to the legal profession. Justice Collins? the new master  of thp rolls, is a most eminent, capable  judge and justice Matthew, who takes  his place in the court ^of appeals, has  long boen marked out for promotion.  Each is an Irishman by birth, and justice Matthew has been a strong Glad-  stonlan home ruler and is a devout  Roman Catholic.* Sir Robert Finlay, the  attorney-general, was mentioned as a  candidate for master.of the rolls, but  his appointment would have involved  important changes in the law* offices of  the crown and at least two bye-elections. He is the "natural successor of  lord Halsbury as lord chancellor and is  in the prime of life and can afford to  await the king's  pleasure."  EDITOR t NOT YET CHOSEN.

Mr  Frecheville and his own immediate staff  at Le Roi headquarters and in the mine,  some se. en ail told, decline to make any  statement whatever for publication, and  th9 public are left to draw any inferences they please. The fact that no de-  m il whatever has appeared in Bernard  McDonald's paper concerning his departure tiom Rossland, as outlined in  The Tribune last week, has led his own  class of down-town followers to accept  tho statement as correct, and to excuse  it as best they can.

Mohneaux, who is under sentence of  death foi poisoning Mrs. Katharaine J.  Adams of this city, has been granted a  new trial by the couit of appeals, sitting at Albany The justices without a  dissenting opinion, decided that the expert handwriting testimony taken ir\  the case was illegal. For this reason  alone, the young clubman, whose tri.il  here twb"years'ago created a sensation,  is entitled to- another hearing. A majority of the judges also decided that  the. admission of the testimony concerning the death of "Henry C. Bar net,  anassociate of Molineux, in the Knickerbocker Athletic Club, was unwarranted. On the adrnissk-n of the Baruet  testimony the court stood four to threo,  Molineux is in Sing Sing, and will nqt  be officially aelvised of the action of the  court of appeals until a transcript of  the" decision is received from the clerk  of the court of Albany. He will be detained in the condemned cell for three  or four days, when it is expected that  tho court order will be formally entered  and he will, be returned to-this city to  await the district attorney's plans.

Sections  of the province in which agriculture and  mining are the main industries should  be given a member on a basis of 3500 of  population. This would give Victoria  district 1 member, Nanaimo district 1,  Cowichan 1, Comox 1, Delta 1, Richmond  1, Chilliwack 1, Dewdney 1, southwest  Yale with Princeton as a center 1, that  portion of Yale that has Greenwood as  a center 1, that portion that has Grand  Forks for a center 1, that portion that  ��nda_d"__^Tuc^s,iu��cv,ary"i_onrh at ��*0 I ias Ver*on for a center *��� that JPortion  p.m. sharp.

This vote  was a" snap'one; for when it was taken1  a large nuniberof the members were in  -the^parliam'enti-.buildings ^-restaurant-  drinking ' cold tea.-   Once the' vote was*  made known1, Green of Slocan and Houston of Nelson, gave  notice  that  they  would move that'Bill No. 50 be restored  to the order paper.-  On,Friday, August  24th, .the bill was so' restored. On Thuf s-  day, August 30th, the bill was read a  second time on the following division:  Yeas���Mclnnes, Gilmour, Stables, E. C.  Smith,  Oliver, ' Kidd,, Brown,   Martin,  Curtis, Green, Ralph s>mith, Houston,  Eberts, Clifford, Garden, McBride, Taylor���-17.       Nays���Hall,     McPHILLIPS.  HELMCKEN, Turner, Dunsmuir, A. W.  Smith,   Ellison,*  Fulton,   HAYWARD,  Prentice, Wells, Pooley, MURPHY, Hunter, Mounce���15.   The bill was passed by  the same vote at 6  o'clock  on  Friday  morning, after an all-night session.   It  will be noticed that four members (McPhillips, Helmckfen/Hayward, and Murphy) voted against the Kettle River bill  at every stage.   Yet that bill was merely  to charter a railway to run from Grand  Forks, British Columbia, to Republic, in  the state of Washington.   Its promoters  were not asking  for   any   subsidy   In  .either money or land; they were simply  asking for the privilege of building a  local road that when built would haul"  ore from Republic to Grand Forks to be  smelted.   The road was not to be a part  of any transcontinental system. Yet Mc-  Phillips find Helmcken aud Hayward and  Murphy did not want the road built. The  road is being built today, and will probably be in operation within six months,  and when in operation will be doing just  what its   promoters   said   it would   be  doing, that  is,   hauling  ore  from   the  mines at Republic, Washington, to the  smelter at Grand Forks, British Columbia.     McPhillips   and   Helmcken   and  Hayward and Murphy did not want the  people of Grand Forks to have railway  connection with the state of Washington in  August, 1900.    In  April, 1901,  these four gentlemen were} -bund to be  --'A; W.

Mr.   Smith,   if  The'  Tribune is riot" mistaken, is serving his  fourth term< in the legislative' assembly,'  He was always elected as a supporter-  bf the Victoria regime, and he has not  been  in 'opposition  except during" the  time  the .

A year ago McPhillips was most bitter in his opposition to the Kettlb River railway, whose  owners were not asking. for any ,sub-  ;_idy from the province; now he is fighting for a subsidy for the'V. V. & E.  Railway,   which    parallels   the' Kettle  River railway. Last year Smith Curtis  would  have no railways  built by the  aid-of subsidies; he wanted all railways  b'uilt.by the government;   he waa'an  out-and-out   advocate   of   government  ' ownership of railways.

Organizations  of  capital  into  trusts  1 and of labor into unions have certain  common features. In each case their  object is to wield power and the inertia  oi the mass as an aggregate���to substitute the effectiveness of an army for the  impotence of a mob.  For   most   effective' distribution   of  wealth produced���that is, apportionment  among producers���experience has shown  i that wage-earners' unions are necessary.  If labor is not   combined,   capitalists  have it at their mercy���the weakness or  necessity  of  some  laborers  constantly  making them allies of their fellows in  their efforts to secure fairness in distribution'of wealth produced.  If labor is combined, it has the world"  i   at its mercy;   for capital.can scarcely  exist, either for use or advantage, except  through labor of others than its owners.  The interests of capital cannot be safe-  ' ly intrusted to labor, nor can those of  labor be safely intrusted to capital.  No't because either as actually inhuman, or intentionally unfair, but because  neither, generally speaking, fully; understands the other.  Labor is ordinarily not competent to  administer'capital, or to apportion" its  own product; and capital still less appreciates or knows the human conditions  on which depends the welfare of labor.  And neither can be safely trusted to do  what it does not know how to .do._  Werhave the world's experience behind  us. _ _ '      ��� '  Every combine of wealth that was  successful enough to get control of labor  has started in or degenerated .'-into  oppression of labor, and has. grown less  capable of being fair or businesslike,  until it had to be swept aside'-as an obstacle to progress.  On the other hand, every successful  combine of��� labor by whicli, on the  whole, the share of the wage-earner in  his product has been - increased,, has  bettered his country and the race, and  almost uniformly increased the ultimate  'returns ���*of capital in the product most  directly affected..        ' ���  The general ��� tendency of wealth in  power has always b'een to degrade labor;  that of labor in power to protect and  respect wealth.  It Is the wage-earners of our country  whose protection gives value to the  wealth of our trust capitalists.  ' In short, the few are more safe in the  hands of the many than are the many  m the hands of the few.  . And this is because the many are the  ���many���whose weal is the common weal  ���and -the few are the few���whose weal  is not necessarily the common weal.  The common prosperity of all���the  mass of our people-^is the only condition on which labor can prosper.  ���)���-��� .n\ ition   and   (.^gradation   of  tin  masses, so long as they will endure it,  are entirely consistent with the presen.  prosperity of a few whose greed in seiz-  -__ing_a_large_share_of-Jvealth���produced  may leave so little for their fellows.  4    It is true that in the long run the in  ,terests of capital and laoor axe identical.  It is equally true that in the long run  virtue  has  its  own  reward;   that  in-  .    herited wealth oppresses the heir, and  that selfish gain hurts the getter.  But it i-i only in the very Ions; run-  too long much to affect our acts���thai  this is true.   %  It,\ therefore, capital and labor are t<  war, whatever be the merits separate!-*  considered in any one. or another engagement, the safety of'our institutions  the prosperity of our country and thr  interests of humanity require tha latbor  conquer In the ond.  "Do you favor socialism?"  This is, perhaps, not an unfair ques  tl'on; but it is pointless unless asked bj  one who can answer that other one: "D(  yon favor plutocracy?"  All civilization is���the valuable producl  * r ,-nriplism. winnowed by .the winds ot  4the past���small 'indeed compared with  the chaff blown but in the process���bu)  all that we have of progress.  As for government by the few, whatever may have been its apparent or temporary success, it has constantly had to  ie cleared out from the path of our race  On the whole we are gaining.  Intelligent labor** no longer dreams of  Utopia.      i  Intelligent capital more and more appreciates the limitations of its power.  The panacea���and I believe there i.  one for the troubles referred to���is better acquaintance between capital and  la'*"*ii'���a broader outlook for each.  If capital appreciates the lives and  aspirations of labor, the lessening brutalities of wealth would disappear.  This state of things is fast coming  about. Labor has always had the power  to run the world, provided it knew how;  but until lately it not merely did not  know how, but could not learn how.  It is less than a century since, the  great mass of labor in civilized countries  went to bed hungry most evenings.  11 is less than twenty-five years that it  has had leisure after work and sleep to  -.think and learn. ���    .  A/nri this: is no fault of wealth. ,  Until late invention increased control  i-t natural* forces. The world's nrochic-  -was not enough, Tipweyer,shared, to do  much more than it did.* Now, in this and  mother civilized countries, labor is sufficiently "well nourished to ba mentally,  j&ound. and has enough leisure to cons.  der what it knows, and shares the swiftly increasing facilities for knowing  more, which, for all time until lately,  had been almost exclusively those of  capital.  Therefore, while capital will still grow  more powerful, because more intelligent,  the power of labor will much more rapidly increase, until this and every other  country will be ruled by labor���and better ruled than now, because with more  intelligent regard for the interests of  the masses of its citizens.  Trust methods are in the way, because  in essence they are an appeal to force. '  And labor union methods are subject  to the same criticism.  ' No country can thrive with its' people  warring against each other.   . .    ,  But war is often the only way to decide what motives shall dominate.  Organization of capital has always  been further advanced than that of  labor.       **..   ,,  ,  That labor is learning more effectively  to organizers a sign of the. times���a  good sign.  If, indeed, it means more strenuous  war, it means the approach of the only  lasting peace���when labor (the masses)  shall have conquered its own���a world  in which < capital will be more safe and  better rewarded than ever before.  If capital has not learned much of late  as to the rights of and interests of labor,  its present domination would be far  more deadly than it is.      -~      *    "  Until labor shall have learned more  than it now knows of the rights and interests; of capital, it would hurt both  labor and capital to give* labor full control. - ' u -. ,  No-onlooker, can^ assume to judge in  each instance whose is the right in the  pitched battle he sees.  Still less can he fairly ask the combatants not to fight it out, or to refrain  from every means^ that is fair in war.   .  But, while they" are fighting, to succeed in war each must carefully study  ,rth- enemy's position.  , And those engaged in war. at all other  i times, and others at all times, can and  should, by increase of mutual acquaint-  ��� ance with each others interests, and regard for them," more and more to pre-  'vfent war. -,.    -  *��� As to your specific questions:  1 I see no fear that labor1 unions, if in-  'corporated, would not receive fair treatment from the courts. The trouble, it  ,seems to me, is this: ' In questions between labor and capital that would require litigation, the issues are of endurance���of war. *��� '���  To decide these legal methods are in-  .appropriate; and would tend to "prolong  .instead of shorten contests, in which, as  Idelay lengthens, flesh and blood is at .  .cruel disadvantage when pitted against  ; capital.  \ It seems to me that arbitration is a  ���casual expedient for settling difficulties  'between two parties who are at agree-  'ment in temper and nearly so in fact���  ���not the means by which they can be  "brought to that point.  j Labor's proper share in the joint pro-  jduct of labor and capital will constantly  ���more nearly approach tho whole in proportion as the increasng protection of  !capital_by_ labor shall lessen the element  |of risk���that is, should constantly increase. '  ; . As to the rights of employees in the  plants they have helped to create, if  (they include the means by which natural  'opportunities are monopolized, these  should be and will become the property  of the community���that is, ever more  largely labor's own.         .  As to model industries, profit sharing,  etc.. the fleld for successful experiment  In these is narrow, but will steadily.expand. t i  As to socialism: There 'is no gulf  wider than that between1 the old socialism, which restricted men, and the new  socialism, which proposes to increase  tho iacuities of each to do as ue pleases.  As to tho single tax: Its principles���  thnt proper uso is the only excuse tor  possession of land; that the value of  that possession is something for which  Iio cominuniiv that ci edited it should  be paid: and that not until the community has collected and spent its own income should it tax its citizens���once  conceded, as it seems to me they must  be, the only question is this: On  whi_ terms and in what shape can this  adjustment best be brought about?  , As lo the right to work���that is, the  opportunity to earn one's living���a man  refused this right is under no moral re-  strait from taking what he needs. Society, having made him an outlaw, cannot  complain.  As to free trade, that, is the natural  right of every man.  Protective tariffs are extortion, to  which no one has the right to submit,  except because, and in so far as, he cannot help himself.���John De Witt'Warner  in San Francisco Examiner.

The serious thought,.which I[  have given to this proposition and to'  another   which   the   representative   of  these newspapers has likewise submitted  to me, namely, to make a tour���of the  world in less than a lunar month, are  evidence of the little heed paid by those"  .who "-say a'balloon steerable in the wind  tis. an impossibility.   Furthermore, I am,  in a position to state that a race among'  'airsh.ps next year is ' now a  certainty.y  ���M. Besancon's ship is practically'ready,"  and others, of course, are in preparation..  I confess that the idea of breaking all  records by making a tour ofthe world in1  less than a month, in other words, racing the moon, has an originality'about  it which captures the imagination/yet as  a student of science, -I should prefer a  .trip to the pole.

For instance, where thousands t  had assembled at the Aero Club Park,  bent upon seeing me 'sail   around" the  Eiffel tower,-it   required   some, moral  courage on my part to say tho event'was  off, as the weather v/as unfavorable.  . In regard to reaching the Pole, Dumont will have a submarine competitor  in the person of .ty^chutakamf, a discipline of the prince^of Monaco.   According to this explorer, the ice fields of the  polar regions are not more than thirty  yards in depth.   He is building a boat  which ho believes will sail under sixty-  five yards of water and remain thus deep  for fifteen "consecutive hours. Within  that time he is sure to find some unfrozen spot, or at least ice break enough to  ^permit him to break through to the surface. . He says he will carry, out in reality fhe conquest of the North Pole, as  Jules Verne.has, done   in   imagination  .with,the Nautilus.    Prince   Albert _of  .Monaco, the best .living oceanographer,  is heart and soul with the project and  jmay take charge pf the expedition.  '    *".*���-'��� ���   ,'     .  ,l.

So far the^police know nothing of  the* affair beyond what Burns has been  able to tell them." His story is in effect  that he was walking along Ward street  in the direction of the Catholic church  and when a short distance above Carbonate street he was assaulted by being  struck on the back ot' the head. The  force of the^blow was sufficient to daze  him and when he looked around he says  there was a man within thirty feet of  him. The man immediately made off  and .Burns started down town again to  have the wound in,his head attended to.  It consisted ofi a" deep cut which ; bled  profusely.-. Whether robbery or spite  was'the motive which prompted the offense is not -known,' but it is" thought  that the robbers made a mistake in their  man and that'when they found this out  they, made their, escape. Burns has no  enemies and-, his'own solution of the  matter .is that being dressed up his assailants mistook'him for a capitalist.'  -u-"  --PERSONALS.

The information leaked out late today  that the young men had been speculat-'  ing and had lost heavily. Realizing that  detection must come, and in order possibly, to secure immunity from punishment, it is claimed that on Thursday  night the men went into the bank vault  and took all the money there deposited.  This, it is said placed them in a position to compel the bank to make terms.  This seems to resemble, a former bank  defalcation here, in which the delinquent  took all the money he could find in the  bank, and with the late general B. F.  Butler as counsel, made a settlement  and escaped punishment. The bank officials would not express themselves  when told that the shortage was reported as being ?90,000 or $100,000.

Neither side was satisfied with the showing made yesterday,  and orders went out from both headquarters to urge everyone of the known  recalcitrants to record his name before  night. The total record for the three  days' registration ending last night was  502,209, which was 37,653 behind the total  for the same period last year. The record for the election of 1897 was, however, left nearly ,45,000 behind by the  compilations' completed last night.  Many of the. students attending Columbia college, of which Seth Low, fusion candidate for mq,yQr, v.a.3 president,  hare registered, and the legality of their  registration has been questioned, on the  ground that they are without legal residence in New York. Summonses for 20  students were issued today, and they  will answer in court on Monday.  Young Men Lost Heavily.
