paid over as a ransom to secure Miss
Stone's release.
NEW YORK, November 13— Ivan
Milochoff, a Bulgarian clergyman from
Uscub, in Macedonia, has just arrived
from visiting Miss Stone, and is now in
consultation with Mr. Dickinson, says
a Sofia, Bulgaria, dispatch to the Journal and Advertiser. "Miss Stone," he
said, " is in the house of Bekir Bey in
the town of Ceres, Macedonia. I left
her two days ago, coming direct to Mr.
Dickinson to try and arrange for her
release. Miss Stone and Mme.. Tsilka
are well, but the strain is terrible and
there is danger that Miss Stone may
lose hor mind. To 'be-always in the.
same surroundings is likely to drive
her crazy. Constantly looking at the
same objects has semi-mesmerized her^
and she has had a presentment that
evil '■will.'befall her. The brigand chief
informs me that he'will not insist oh
the full ransom. The length of time Miss
Stone has been left on his hands leaves
no margin for bargaining. The name of
the brigand chief is Dervich Youaouss
and he is an Albanian; Bekir Bey, "in
whose house Miss Stone is confined, is
hand and glove with the - brigands.
Bekir Bey assisted the brigands; by;
keeping Miss Stone .for thirty days in
the mountains before taking:her to his
. house. There are about 150 Macedonians imprisoned in connection with the
Stone affair by the Turkish officials.
I want no personal compensation, but
I want the Macedonians released. If
thc American, English and French consuls at Salonica insist upon Bekir Bey
releasing Miss Stone it-will not be necessary to deal with the brigands—and.
we can get her released without paying
ransom." '**'*' '■*.-'   '.'.''
SOFIA, November 13— The Bulgarian
officials-; disclairrv any  intention  to  interfere with consul general Dickinson's
private negotiations for the release of
Miss Ellen M.   Stone from  the hands
of the brigands, but they decline to become a party to an agreement sanctioning the brigands  or  the emissaries  of
the • brigands   coming   into   Bulgarian
territory to treat for tho ransom Of persons  captured   in  a  neighboring  state.
In defense of the interests of Bulgaria
the Officcials cannot show weakness towards   the .brigands   or   repudiate   responsibility for the consequences. Thc
government' would, however, subject to
certain  conditions,   respect   safe   conducts granted by Mr. Dickinson personally to private emissaries. It is suggested that Mr. Dickinson give the brigands a fixed  time in which to accept
tho amount offered and the conditions
of   payment   as   the   only   means   of
bringing the  matter  to a speedy conclusion, inasmuch _as__the_ i.reslige__.o_fl
"the United States is injured by the present   inconsequent   negotiations.   Hardly a day passes without, persons calling at the hotel where Mr.  Dickinson
and the newspaper correspondents are
staying with information to sell regarding tho case. This information is either
stale or fictitious. A Greek priest was
introduced yesterday.

BOSTON, November 13.—The Executive oflicers of the American Board of
Foreign Missions, concerning the case
of Miss Ellen M. Stone, issued a statement today intended to bo corrective of
erroneous reports that have been widely
circulated relative to tho conditions attending her capturo by tho brigands.
This statement affirms that Miss Stone
was in pursuit of her customary duties
as a missionary when she was captured.
The route ever which she was traveling
is one continually used by the missionaries and without reason for apprehending any special danger. No warning
whatever was given to Miss Stone as
to this particular journey by the Turkish or Bulgarian authorities. Sho had
the usual escort of eighteeo. or twenty
pecple and was accustomed to- carry
with her a Turkish teskro, or permit
to travel. One of the missionaries acquainted with the. region states that
t.he route Miss Stone took was tha
safest of any in that region.-The statement further affirms that there is no
ground whatever for criticising Miss
Stone for wsnt of precaution in making this journey.
WASHINGTON. D. C, November 13.
—Such official information as comes to
the state department irom Sofia and
Constantonople is confirmatory of presy
reports of Mr. Dickinson's negotiations
with the Bulgarian government regarding Miss Stone's ease. It is believed
that the consul-general's efforts to secure Miss Stone's release by negotiations with the brigands without interference hy the Bulgarian government
will be successful. It is apprehended,
however, that through his declination J

Sensible Kin/? Edward
LONDON; November 13.—In view of
the recent attitude of count Goluchowski, the Austrian-Hungarian foreigu
minister, in regard to the indifference
in the standing of the heads of republics
and of monarchies, the dictum of king
Edward; holding that the honors to he
paid to presidents and crowned heads
at the time of his majesty's coronation
shall be identical, has special interest.
Tlie question arose during discussion
of the details of the decorations to be
bestowed and the mode of entertaining
the heads of states attending the coronation.^ The king refused point blank
to distinguish between the titles of president, king and emperor, arguing that
his object was to honor the state not the
man. No distinction will be made, except possibly in the case of near rela-
tionss of the royal family.

different towns and cities, have reached
through their indoor gatherings some
1,241,587 persons and through their outdoor agencies 1,864,951 persons, have
heard tiie gospel." Mrs..Booth speaking
of her work said: "We are in intimate
touch with over 20,000 men who have
been in prison and this means that we
have reached hundreds of thousands of
others through their agency. * "I
fully believe that 75 per cent of those
who have promised to reform are leading useful lives." .*-'■'-..■■

Must Re-enact Geary Law.
SAN FRANCISCO, November 13.'—
The warning given by president Mitchell to. the miners of Pensylvania, that,
failure to re-enact the Geary exclusion
law would result in the immigration of
millions of Chinese, who will take the-
<place of white men in the mines and
workshops and reduce wages, is noted
with interest by labor leaders and men
in public life here.
A well-known labor leader, whose attention was called to Mitchell's brief but
significant remarks on tho subject, said
he was surprised to learn that working-
men in the cast were awakening to the
danger, because the east had had no experience with the Chinese as competitors
in any line of employment affecting large
der the impression that the Chiaaman
could do nothing but wash clothes.
"John Mitchell," he. said, "does not exaggerate the peril to skilled whito labor
that lies in the effort now  being made
by the Southern Pacific and other transcontinental railroads having interests in
steamship lines and coal mines to prevent tho re-enactment of the Geaiy law.
It is not a question of the admission of
lauudrymen and  cooks;   it means  tho
importation   of   innumerable   laborers
who arc fit for any sort of hard work
and.willing to do it for wages below the
limit of subsistence for white men. Until the builders of the Pacific railroads
imported hordes of stalwart coolies to
grade and lay their tracks, and then remain on the line as section  hands or
scatter in to the  mines  and   upon   the
farms, there was no Chinese question in
California.   That the Chinese do not get
a fothoold in quartz   mining   was   due
solely to the determined attitude of ihe
miners' unions and their physical ability
to enforce their views.    The Comstock
miners forbade the railroads to employ
Chinese in that part of Nevada, and 'forcibly stopped work until white men were
substituted,     thereby     defeating     the
scheme to introduce   Chinese   labor   in
the mines of Virginia City. Such prompt
action kept the wage* ot miners up to
$4 a day and a day's work at eight hours.
There are many Chinese miners in California today, but they are employed in
the placer districts, and some of them
own and work their claims.   They are
still employed on the railroads as section hands, work*on the farms and in
factories, and do every sort of hard labor
at wages that no white man could support himself ou decently, to say nothing
of a family.   It is not In the least improbable that the railroad-coal combination means to introduce Chinese labor
ori a large scale in the east, counting on
the supposed ignorance of the miners on
the subject of Chinese competition  to
enable them to get the system established  before  its  consciences are understood.    The mine operators  have  tried
the experiment of importing cheap labor
from Europe, but it has not been wholly
satisfactory to them, for  lhe European
is not  docile and  is very troublesome
when he thinks he is imposed upon,"

.. WASHINGTON, November 13.—A distinguished -bcdy,,representing thc commercial organizations of New York, Boston,. Buffalo, Pittsburg, Cleveland, In-'
dianapolisand Cincinnati called on the
president to urge the importance of reciprocity, with Canada. The delegation
included Gustav H. Schwab, chairman;

committee of foreign commerce and revenue laws of the chamber of commerce
of thp state of New York, and C. H. Keep
of Buffalo, representing tho Lake Carriers Association. J. R. Leeson of the

that next to Great Britainand Germany
the trade of Canada with the United
States represented more money to manufacturers and producers of the United
States than that of any other country,
and that unless something was done to
further that trade in the way- of reciprocal concessions all of it might, be endangered. 'The president received the
delegation".cordially. He said that he
did not need to be reminded of the importance of: a question of which he had
given much .thought and attention. He
said,. bowever*,,*tliat"-he.-. aid" nou_r.)iink -it-

the process of wearing down," he exclaimed. "We intend to provide lord
Kitchener with fresh troops to replace
the tired ones. Only today a certain
colony made an offer to help." Mr. Broderick said he was sorry anything had

Colombia's Governmental Tangle
WASHINGTON, November 13.—The
Colombian government is making an
earnest effort to solve the troubles which
have arisen in its; executive branch.
The first official act of a new Colombian congress is to appoint a "desig-
t.ado," an official who succeeds to the
presidency upon the retirement of both
the president and vice-president. General Rafael Reves, Colombian minister
to France, now in attendance upon the
congress of American republics at the
City of Mexico as one of the Colombian
delegates, holds that position. Information has reached the Colombian iegation
in this city "to tbe effect that a commission comprising three Colombian officials
is about to leave Bogota for Mexico City
to endeavor to induce general Reves to
accompany it back to the Colombian capital* and take up the reins of government.
Notwithstanding the fact lhat the former president, San Clemecte, has been
out of office for some time, it is true
that he is still the constitutional president of Colombia and he has yet to tender bis resignation from that ofiice.
However San Clemente, it is stated, has
said he will tender his resignation provided president Maouquin, who is constitutionally only the vice-president;
v.ill do likewise. A great many of the
present complications in Colombia hava
arisen out of this situation and the
strong factions lack of the commission
see in general Reves an officer with a
clean titlo to the presidency, as they
confidently believe the president can be
induced to ielinquish his office. -

SCRANTON, November 13.—No sign
of surrender appeared on either side today in the controversey over the blacklist between the Temyie Iron & Steel
Company and its coal miners. Conditions
grow more threatening for a general
strike/which shall embrace the whole
anthracite industry, a repetition of.the
great struggle which took.! place in
September a year ago.
S. Brinkenhoff Thorne, general manager- of the Temple Company, refused
today to. comment on the order issued
by president Nichols, of District No. 1,
United Mine Workers, directing 5000
dent that the company is determined to
enforce its position, and make the blacklist a feature of the employment of
The miners are no less determined.
All the local unions will meet tomorrow night, and the strike order will be
thoroughly considered in its full import. Each local body will decide for.
itself, but it is believed that all will
agree that they must either stand or
fall together on the issue of the blacklist. Officials of the miners' union are
watching other companies closely to
see whether they will attempt to impose the blacklist. If it is done, tho men
say, a strike will bo ordered at once.
Thero is a general belief among tho
miners that the intention of the operators is to force a general strike. They
declare that to blacklist men from ono
end of tho anthracite region to the
other is to make it impossible for a
man -to' obtain work anywhere, once
he has incurred the displeasure of a
single company. The issue is regarded,
therefore, as one which affects every
miner, and a general strike would bo
the only possible result. This, the men
believe, is what the operators desire.
Immense amounts of coal have been
mined and stored during the summer,
and the companies are in a position to
close their collieries without serious
loss. Hence the burden of a general
strike would fall upon tho men and their
families, with the prospect of carrying
the fight through tho winter. Such a.
struggle would threaten the existence
of the United Mine Workers' organization, and leave it unable to enforce the
agreement with the operators which is
to be made next April. In this district
sentiment in favor of the employees of
the Temple Company seems to be growing. Among business men the prevailing opinion is that the company did
not act fairly in discharging men after
they had been at work. Had their first
application for work been refused, there
probably would have been no trouble.

in Little Rock and when cloeely questioned he stated that his wife was in
part of the conspiracy to secure insur- '
anco money illegally,  although he in--,
sisted  that she  was  entirely innocent
of complicity in any plot to put Goodman out of the way. At first Rathbone
stated   that   his   only   confederate was .
a  deserter from the regular army by,
the name of Blanchard, but he finally
admitted that this was false and that _
Blanchard was fictitious. He then stated
this  morning that he had  worked thioi-
plot out alone. The suspicions of cap-,
tain   Sullivan   were   aroused   by   news '-
from Little Reck that a Miss Corinne
Prior  had   stated   that  Rathbone  had
proposed   a  very   much   similar   plot
of d.efrauding an insurance company to
her and said that if she would marry,
him and cany out her part he would
send a corpse home;   that it could ba
buried   as   him   and   that   he  and   sho
could divide the insurance money. Ha
also learned that Mrs. Rathbone insisted  that the corpse sent from Jeffersonville and  now in Little Rock waa
that of her husband.

Sunk Into the Ground.
JOPLIN, Missouri, November 13—In
^a^cave-at-Oronogo-near- here-today-tha—
entire plant of the Aurora Mining Company, one of the great zinc propertie-3
in the district, was swallowed up. No
lives were lost. The plant composed a1
hundred ton mill, oflice buildings and
engino house, all of which were engulfed together with six gravel carg
and an immense tailing pile. On entering the ground a short time before tho
cave-in occurred workmen heard tho
timbers cracking and signaled to bo .
drawn up. Tho last man had reached
the surface only a few minutes before
the timbers collapsed, the earth yielded
and the whole plant sank into the abyss.
Further caving is feared and work ic
the vicinity has been suspended. It ia
impossible to estimate the loss.

Mrs. Roosevelt went to New York last  [, week to do some shopping beforo the  ' social season in Washington formally  begins.   Her reason for going outside of  | Washington is said to be due to an incident which occurred a snort time ago.  Mrs. Roosevelt" was informed that in  Washington the smart set has its gowns  made, in a certain fashionable establishment. The wife of the president recently  visited the. place and found the waiting-  room crowded/Word was conveyed to  the proprieife&s that a lady wished to  > consult hereabout some gowns. She sent  a reply that she had engagements for an  [hour, and could not be interrupted.   Her  'cmt   message   was    repeated    to    Mrs.  1,Roosevelt, who patiently waited for almost an hour. Profuse apologies were  made by the dressmaker when she discovered what. had happened, but Mrs.  Roosevelt, it is said, was not sufficiently  'impressed to leave an order.  Father Jeremiah J. Crowley, late pastor of St. Mary's church at Oregon, Illinois, has been excommunicated by archbishop Feehan. of the Chicago diocese.  The order of dismissal was the direct result of repeated attacks made by father  Crowley upon fe)low-pastors of the Catholic church, and charges of favoritism,  fraud, and cruelty which he made at the  time father Muldoon was consecrated as  ���auxiliary bishop of the Chicago diocese.  Father Crowley was warned repeatedly  to desist, and finally archbishop Feehan  compelled him to resign his pastorate.  An hour later father. Crowley withdrew  the resignation, but it had already been  accepted by chancellor Barry, and it was  made absolute. " Then father Crowley  started legal proceedings to keep his successor out of the pastorate, and renewed  his, attacks en bishop Muldoon. The  papal delegate at Washington went to  Chiicago recently and took final action.  He gave father Crowley a choice of two  things���to make humble penance and  accept without protest life within ths  confines of a monastery, Or to be dismissed forever .from the,rights and privileges of the Catholic "church. Father  Crowley was given a few days to decide,  and, as nothing was heard from-him, an  order of "'excommunication was' sent' on  October 27th by archbishop Feehan -to  every pastor in the diocese. It is said  that father Crowley will appeal to the  pope.    "'Flirting'**Made a Crime.  The course of true love is made rough  for sweethearts in. many towns in the  United States by the interference of the  law.  At Scranton, .���Pennsylvania, lovers are  apparently regarded with especial disfavor. The shaded streets of the aristo-  oratic section of the town known as  Green1 Ridge are favorite resorts of  courting couples. The residents, however  do not'take kindly to the presence of  lovers there, and the other day five  couples were caught and hauled before  the court! What is more they were actually fined $3 each.  Atlantic City has also adopted repressive measures. The poiiceman who patrols the beach each evening was last  summer furnished with a baton which by  touching a button could be converted  into a brilliant incandescent lamp. With  the rays of this light beating into every  ""nook^and^cornei'T^the-officer carefully"  searched all the pavilions along, the  shore for couples who might teen spooning there.  ' Trenton, New Jersey, is another rough  place for the cooing lovers. Not long  ago the residents of West, State street  called on tho police to tako action  against strollers, and now- any man or  woman found billing and cooing in that  section is taken into custody.  Lovers will do well to steer clear of  Suffolk, Virginia, another town which  presumes to regulate courtship,- for seven  young men, who were all members of  prominent local families, wero recently  prosecuted there for flirting with some  cf the collego girls. lUve of the latter  wero funimonod, much to their humiliation, as witnesses against the desperately  hardened criminals, who were reported  to have obtained a withdrawal of the  warrants agaiust them by paying court  cr.sts and apologizing to the lady principal of the college. !)  At first thought it would seem that  cemeteries would he anything but .suitable resorts for sweethearts, but in Ger-  mantown, Pennsylvania, the Norwood  cemetery became so popular as a rendezvous that the directors fouud it necessary to interfere. Hence the notice,  "Flirting is Prohibited," which adorns  the entrance.  Courtship in Russia sometimes involves couples in very serious consequences quite in accord with the tyrannical rule which there unfortunately  prevails. In that benighted country, as  well as in some parts of the United  States it is a crime for lovers to kiss in  public. A few weeks ago (wo young men  and two young women were arrested  in Odessa for this terriblo offense. It  waa committed in a restaurant, whero  the culprit?; had been dining together.  Several other persons wore present at  the fatal moment and witnessed the  deed. Having hoard the evidence, the  judge declared that the prisoners had  been guilty qf "shameless conduct in a  public place."' He therefore condemned  them to imprisonment for several days,  whereupon they promptly appealed to a  superior court against his decision.  Their counsel a.rguecl that kissing could  not be considered "shameless conduct,"  inasmuch as it was generally regarded  as the most legitimate and naluial  method of showing affection. The ap-  real was, however, dismissed. . ,  ' Strathcona and-the Railroads.  ��� NEW YORK, Novembsr- 13.���Accord ���  ���ing to. the Times, a,series'of. quiet conferences have been going on during the  past 24 hours,among the various representatives of theulii'ferentinterests which  are.trying.to effect a settlement'of-'the  Northwestern railroad . situation.

Houston Block, Baker Street  THE  BI-ND3RY DBPABTMHNT OV  j&&jsa&MJ>&xrW8S&a0'80  BOOK BI80INC  smm wm &m w��{$  Sheriff Tuck yesterday received a  request from tho under secretary of  state, Joseph Pope, C.M.G., that he inform Thomas M. Beamish and Joseph  Colistro that his excellency the governor-general dees not see fit to exercise thc prerogative of clemency in  their eases. This means that the- men  who were sentenced to two- months'  imprisonment in connection with the  labor trouble at Rossland must complete their terms of imprisonment.  From the manner in which they received  the intimation it was evident that they  did not pin much hope upon the appeal to the governor-general.  The frequent failures of the police  to get the necessary machinery in working order in time to secure the conviction of those who fail to observe the  provisions of the trades license by-law  have called forth the suggestion that in  such general information should be laid  against the persons offending and summonses served upon them to appear in  the police court upon their failure to  produce the necessary transient trader's license. It some scheme ot this nature in adapted the police will bare a  chance of securing conrictkau^ bet on-'  iier tho present procedure by the time  thc specific information is secured the  trader wanted for infringing the bylaw has completed his business and  moved out of the jurisdiction of the  municipal officers. A case of this nature  occurred on Monday. The police secured  ample evidence that the by-law was  being violated, but by the time th ly  were ready to move the man they  wanted was gone.

If the miners of Kootenay  are helping the farmers of the Northwest why shouldn't the farmers of the  Northwest, through their representatives in the house of commons at Ottawa, help the miners of Kootenay?  Word was received in Nelson yesterday by Messrs Elliot & Lcrnie to the  effect that. the motion of the plaintiff  in. the-case-of:.the Merchants' Bank of  Halifax vs. T. M. Ward for a variation  in the judgment of the supreme court  of Canada had been refused. This case  arose out of* the litigation in connection with some saw logs supplied to the  Gray mill which were claimed by the  Merchants' Bank of Halifax. The judgment which it was sought to vary was  one allowing the appeal of Ward with  costs. By the motion is was sought to  vary the judgment by securing judgment against the estate of T. W. Gray  for the costs of the action and the appeals and a declaration that the bank  was entitled to certain machinery in  priority to the assignee. The motion  came before the October sittings of the  supreme court and was referred to the  chief justice in chambers. The decision of the chief justice has just been  announced, refusing the motion and affirming the judgment given on appeal  in favor of Ward as assignee.  AT THE HOTELS.  MADDEN���P. J.

Nelsoii'Cases Disposed Of.  Several of the Nelson appeals were  disposed of yesterday at the meeting of  the full court in Vancouver. The most,  important from a local point of view  was that of Hall vs. LaBau. This came  up in the way of an appeal from the order of judge Forin in saddling the defendant with the costs of the case up  till_his application for a motion to  amend his, defense, in connection with  which the judge refused to allow defendant's counsel to withdraw his application .for amendment "after the terms  upon "which the amendment ��� would be  allowed had been stated. The appeal  was allowed with costs of the appeal  and of the court below. W. A. Macdonald appeared for LaBau and S. S.  Taylor for the plaintiffs, Hall & Rose.

The plaintiff was  ordered to amend his statement of  claim, with costs in any event to the defendant.  The appeal of plaintiff Malone in t.he  case of Malone vs. Ferguson, an action  respecting the responsibility .of an express company as a common carrier,  was dismissed.. This case was tried before judge Forin at the last session of  the county court, who gave a verdict  for the defendant. From this S. S. Taylor appealed. W. A. Galliher appeared  for the defendant Ferguson. The appeal  in the case of Waterland vs. tin city of  Greenwood was heard and stands for  judgment. This was a suit against the  city of Greenwood for damages resulting  from flooding. At the trial the plaintiff  secured a verdict for ?3000 and from this  judgment thc city nppealed.  Outlaws and Officers Clash.  GUTHRIE, Oklahoma, November 13.���  A pitched battle was fought yesterday  afternoon between deputy sheriffs on  one side and a band of outlaws on the  other near Pickee, a village of Kay  county. The officers state that the outlaws are some of the escaped prisoners  from Leavenworth, The battle was the  result of an attempt made by the outlaws, who were masked, to steal several  horses in the neighborhood. Several of  the combatants are reported wounded.  Officers in all parts of Oklahoma have  been notified and the escape of the  gang seems impossible.  Drowned in Sight of Thousands.
