Maher has always been, popular on the  English turf, and is quite a favorits  with,the duke of,Devonshire, in whose  name the king races his horses while ho  is in mourning.

PARIS,   Octobor   29. ��� The   Temps,  which has been publishing leports showing that English ships have been boycotted in Holland since the Boer war,  began giving fac-similes of contracts for  freight containing an anti-British clause.  It is receiving letters from prominent  French traders showing that the" same  ���restriction has been in vogue here for  eighteen months and is becoming more  and moro general.   Many large contracts  for African ahd American freight.have  only been signed after a clause barring  English bottoms had been inserted.    A  case in point   cited   is that of a   firm  which has done enough trading in China  to keep-ten English cargo boats' busy  for thelast;six* years, but which, now-  proffers slightly higher rates to a French  company, in order to take part in the  boycott.    Another instance'cited is. an  intensely pro-Boer coal merchant, who  broke the,partnership because his partners found' it to their Interest to/buy  stock, in England.,  He himself immediately opened an   independent   house,  went to the ;.'United''-.States..and   contracted for 850,000 tons to be delivered  at various French ports before Christmas. - , -'���.'.''':'  V BERLIN, October .29.���The delegation  of Dutch longshoremen which is, visiting  Hamburg for the purpose of getting the  co-operation of the German, longshoremen- in boycotting .

WINNIPEG, October 29.���Twice foiled  in his attempts to destroy himself, Robert Nicholl, a young clerk, was successful on the third attempt this afternoon,  when he cut his throat with a razor.  Nicholl was despondent oyer-a'love reverse and about a week' ago attempted  his life with a razor. He was saved by  the .intervention of a young lady, who  knocked the razor from his hand. Later  when Nicholl was taken to the general  Mayor   Fletcher   is   making   another  effort to show that black is white. .In  yesterday's Miner he says:   "Mr. Hous-,  ton slates that he secured the passage  of a bill entitled 'Ah Act to Amend tho,,  Water   Clauses   Consolidation   Act   of  1S97.-" .This amendment was drawn by,  Messrs.. Macdonald '&���' Johnson, as city  solicitors) in,January, 1899/at the suggestion "of myself "as chairman "of the  board of works of the Neelands' council,  who discovered that Mr. Houston had  expended a considerable sum of money  to bring water in from the Salmon, river  without having any legal right to do so.'  .This bill wasJ'senf'to''the Hon. "J. Fred  Uumeand the attorney-general on February 4th, 1899, but ,for some reason or  other was not passed at that session.   It  remained quiescent for a whole year un-  'til it was"drawn to Mr. Houston's knowledge when he was made a member of  the; legislature and was passed at the  last"session."     * x*..-_        \   >   ..���  s-':lt-may be'.'interesting to the-Nelson  readtis of The Tribune to know,, that  every water record arid right the city  has was"acquired' when John Houston  wai. major. The-first .water record v/as  cne of 100 iuches froni Anderson creek.  The   notice  ot' .application  was   dated  July  12th,' 1897,' and,  aiter opposition  from  Jcshua 'Davies,  was granted   or.  January 12th, il898.  The second water  record was for 200 inches from Whit".-  watei cie'ek, oh the1 Salmon river _lop,o.  Th'e  notice   of  application   was   dated  December -3 2th;'" 1898, i and  ihe   record  wa��; - granted/on   January   17th, ,1899,  without piotest. The third water record  was " fo'r '4001 inches   from  Clearwater  creek,   which   is   also   on  the   Salmon  river  slope.  The. notice" of application  was dated December 32th, IS^/anrt the  rtcord^ was' granted"* on sJanuary-4-17th,  1S99, without protest. .Both these records are for water to be used for "household purposes," etc. Both aro legal 'rec-[  ords, and no question has ever-'arisen  as to their legality. The fourth and'last  water record was for 1000 inches from  Kootenay river * The notice of application for this record was dated Decemb.3t*  12th, 1900, and was granted on January  17th, 1901, This record was^ p/otpsted by  the   West   Kootenay   Fower   &   Light  Company,   but  the   government   agent  over-ruled the protest, and the fee for  the reccrd was paid by John Houston's  private  check,  as   no  meeting  of  the  council could be held to authorize a city-  check to be issued.  On December 8th, 1898, John Houston,  as mayor, consulted with W. A. Mac  donald, who, \ihilo not city solicitor,  was at that time -.tending to any legal  business, the city had, regarding securing water records on the Salmon river  slope, and all steps that'were taken  were taken^on his advice It was during' that .consultation that the1 first  steps;were taken to secure an amend-  mert'to the Water Clauses Act to give  cities the same right under the act as  power companies had. Mr. Macdonald  afterwards drafted a bill, and sent it  to J. Fred Hume, v/ho was a minister  has. All theso rights were secured by  John Houston, when 'he was mayor,  backed up by such men as W. F. Teetzel, John J. Malone, James A Gilker,  Thomas Madden and Charles Hillyer  -as aldermen, in 1897 nnd )1898, and by  Messrs. , Irvine, 'Morrison, McKillop,  Wilson, Arthur, and Hall as'1 aldermen,  in 1900. The attempt mayor Fletcher  'makes to show that it was directly  through his effoits.that the Water  Clauses Act was amended, and that It  was -��� done in'order to'"make legal the  water records the city had secured'on  the Salmon river , slope, falls to tho  ground. He-has no evidence to support  his pretentious claims. ,  On January 10th, 1899, what is known  as tho Neelands council held their flrst  meeting. A discussion -arose as to the  completion of the Summit flume, a flume  that was commenced by thet Houston  council in December, 1898. One element,  headed  by alderman Beer; wanted to  drop the work altogether; another element, of which alderman Fletcher was  the spokesman, wanted more information*1 before .the, work   was   proceeded  with;  but the majority ofthe council,  headed by alderir en' Hillyer and Kirkpatrick, said: "Shove the work to completion!."   The  following   are   extracts,  fronr the proceedings of that meeting:  ' 'Alderman Thomson thought the most  important thing would he to ascertain  what water rights the city bad to the  streams which it was proposed vto divert.

There is" no: other house in the place'  than, the hotel,'and the training camp  is absolutely cut off from the rest of the  world.   This sort of thing would distress  some fighters, but it is precisely the kind  of surroundings/that .iim Jeffries likes.  Up to a month ago his routine of daily  work consisted of   punching, the   bag,  rope-skippingi dumbbell and rowing machine ^ exercises,  varied  with ��� an occasional run on, the road, and. quite often  by a hunting trip in the mountains.   As  a pleasant variety from the routine work-  Jefferies went oh the road a month ago,  offering a big purse to any man whom  he could not knock out in four, rounds.  Hank Griffin, of Los -Angeles, .managed,  to get the money by clinching,' and fall-'  ing, and running around in Tug Wilson  style, but big Joe Kennedy was easily  put out at Oakland in two rounds. .*. Jeffries   returned   to his.'lonely.. training  camp on October 8th,:much, refreshed  by his little journey in tho outside world  and settled down* to hard work in earnest.   He went'out hunting alone on October 9th and brought home, a fine fat  buck, which ihe had shot moro than five  miles aw,ay from the hotel and; carried  in on his shoulder.    Nearly evory day  Jeffries takes a brisk walk, varied with  sprints up and down the mountain side.  Tho champion's daily programme now  includes the usual bag-punching, rope-  skipping and ' dumb-boll  exercises,  varied by boxing with Jack Jeffries and  Bob Armstrong.

They wanted  the then .mayor' to favor >a .deal by  wjhich they > (the tramway - company)  could use the -power they were rpaying  for but not- using; they -wanted rtlie  privilege? of selling, their .unused power  direct to consumers. The- then 'mayor  said No! most emphatically.^' He however, said he would do-his best to in-'  duco the council to take the-tramway  company's ' surplus ' power off - their  hands, and payT them jvhat' they .were  paying the power .-company, .for, it.r As  an,illustration, he said:j* "You.are pay-  "ling'fov 150-horse-power-and only us-  " ing 70 horse-powver.' Now "I will try  "and , get .the^ city, to-, take-- off,,your  ".hands the 80,horse-power.you cannot  ".use, and pay you the same* rate���-for it  "that' you *are paying the power' com-  ",pany. - You, say you pay;-the. power  "companyj$9000;ar-year for power.\* If  "the city takes 80 horse-power off your  '"{hands; you will be "' saving ��� $4800 a  "'year, .which-is quite ran item." The  three directors said..they-::'couldinot;en-  ter-.into any such-a deal;?tliat the'power  company wouldrnot.a,lk.w,them to sell  their'^i'i used; power I in' any; such.-way.  If this .is a,'statement of if act, .llie power  company is unwilling to lielp-tbe tramway company in a'.way that is.effective.

Mr.  RBowerman in his presidential address  [was outspoken in despondency. Ho  ^described, the present condition of 'affairs as "intolerable," and the legal de-  [cision of which it was the outcome as  fbemg "intended to secure the legal  pauperization of woikmen." The "Daily  u Chronicle." commenting on the president's speech, is found asking if trade-  I unionism is "doomed to extinction as,  fa fighting force." The pronouncement"  'of the house of ]ords,*whiclThas carried  ! coustematior into the trade-union  , ranks, 1 elates to a question so simp1 a  that the. intellect 'of a child might' be  relied 'upon to solve it. The point is  this: Should a society be held responsible for the acts of its authorized  agents' The answer is obvious and inescapable, if the matter' is .posed.*as a  problem of equity. Until a^few weekd  ago the point of law-as it affected  trade-unions was uncertain. - It "is now  settled,, and ^settled in accordance with  plain common'sense'and'justice. It is  understood . that if the officials and  agents cf a trade-union'sanction illegal  acts to the injury of others, the funds  of the union can" be ' made "liable in  damage..  There would not at first sight seem  to be any ground for despondency in  respect to -.this'decision for it does not  propose m any way to-pfnal^e the legal action of the unions It simpl/  makes them responsible for any illegn.1  movement which may nave a detrimental effect upon the interests of others.  But the very fact that it does excite  something akin to dismay proves ai  once that fhe 'leaders of tbe unions  have hithertr not been careful to scrutinize too clo.ely the legality of their  own proceedings It is only the galled  jade who winces under a pinch'of this  "&ort"~"A-corpo'fate^body^which-has-yl-5-  ways kept sci upulously within the limits of the haw is not disturbed on being  told that it will be held financially responsible for the consequences of illcgiil  acts. The letent decision of the highest  couit of judicature in the realm tells  the unions neither more nor less than  that, and straightway "tlie position is  intolerable.' and the question of the  extinction of the trade unions as a  fighting force is guessed at by one of  their most powerful -and consistent  supporteis. It you toll an individual  citizen "If you break you pay," and if  that citizen begins to cry out that he is  in sight of ruin, you suspect him. of  having, at least, been caieless about  hreakngos. The attitude and temper of  the trade-unionists is curiously lllum-  ��� inative. No mere argument could convict them or.p.-half as conclusively as.  their own cutcry.  combination had its beginning in which  no attempt was made to* intimidate tha  non-unionist 'who dared to taire up the  woik the unionist had laid down. The  fact is humaiij natural, and the men1  who looked for anything else would be  over sanguine.     ,       " v  Trade combinations, whether of��men  or masters, are in their essence tyran-1  nies, and their - final argument is a.i  anpeal to torce. Even in conflicts  w'hiohi aie so peaceful on the surface  lhat it is.,scarcely worth ,whilc- to count  overt acts ct anger, the aim of either  side is to starve the other out,' to reduce lti resources to so low Tan ebb that  surrender shall become inevitable. Put  it how you like, it is wai, and war is^  not to be carried on, without an' awak-*-  ening of the natural passions so'inevit-  ably excited as to make it necessary that,  the legal''rosition and the legal responsibility? shall be defnitely marked  'and understood on both sides,*- and-it  is becaus-"' the late decision of the  house of lords-has made ^one, firm"step  in' this direction that it will be approved by the common sense of the  nation. '^  I  An argument as to the moral right of  any body of men to combine together to  secure and confer common advantages  ) and to resist aggression would be out rt  " date.    Such a right is everywhere admitted,   but   it   is   obviously   essential  If that it si ould be safeguarded.    Unionists are still angry with lord Salisbury  for his phrase about  "cruel  combinations," but lord Salisbury is an elderly  p, gentlemen   nowadavs, ,'ancl   it   cannot  seem a very long time to him since the  I'combinations were not only cruel but  rweie maiked  bv circumstar-ces of at  lixocity     The union of today is widely  'j! different from the union of a little over  ithirtj years ago, hut the man who for,-  |' gets "history is not wise.   It is the plain  Ijtruth  that,   since  they  first  struggled  Ilinto  existence ur.dei   conditions which  Were in the highest degree provocative  of hatred and violence, ihe unions ha^e  fj'ear   by  year  grown  mildei    in   tliPii  methods ana more jui-.t in their appreciation of their own rights and those"  of 'others*'    They   ha-ve kept   a   fairly  [equal pace in the general progress,- and  t would be absurd to saddle living men  with the faults of the: generation which  went  beforo  them.    But  the  fact  remains that they have never been able  wholly  to  distinguish   the*' limits   between  moral  suasion   and .*-' a ��������� suasion  which  is very, far  from .being moral.  They have always thought it a part of  their right to terrorize, and there .never  sw_3 ai strike1 or a .<fci_-out since trado  For a'generation' or two there haf  beenv among the workingmen of this  country si general a consensus of opinion in la^or of free trade that t.ie doctrine may almost be said tc have been  held b> them universally.

He spoke enthusiastically of the gold, mines to be'opened  up in his own rouhtry, the factories to  be established, and the general prosper-'  ity that was expected , to i follow their  return to their native land. - The prospect: of continued war-as the result of  the-effort'to'exclude the foreigners did  not;appal.the native'in thr. least; though  he spoke contemptuously of th'e opium  weakened* soldier, and; alluded to .the  historic:-, fact vthat opium was unknown  among them^until^ introduced by. the_  British 7"a hundred, years ago."
