 rra^  /'���   ,.*���::  x-ZVti  -.'-'������'������y !*gy.^'T^?T.....^  0 ��������� n  ESTABLISHED   1892  FRIDAY  MORNING,  NOVEMBER  8,   1901  DAILY EDITION  TALKS ABOUT LI  SIR HENRY JOLY WAS HIS  CANADIAN ESCORT  WHEN   THE   NOTED   CHINAMAN  VISITED THIS COUNTRY       .  IN   1896.  VICTORIA, November 7.���No one on  this continent outside of his own  countrymen knew. Li'Hung.-Chang bet-  rer than the lieutenant governor of  British Columbia, sir Henri Joly. De  Lothinicre. In 1S96, when earl Li vis-  ited this country on his way home to  China after a trip to the European  states and Great Britain, sir Henri, who  "was then*.comptroller-of inland revenue,  "\vas selected to represent* the government and to accompany the distinguished. Oriental statesman on his trip  through this country. Sir Henri recalled  many incidents of the he paced  up and down his office in the parliament buildings and dwelt upon the  deep impression the great Chinaman  had madd upon; him. "He was a most interesting man," he said, as he* recounted  the incidents of the trip.  "Have you ever gone through the formalities of an Oriental introduction?"  asked his honor, and then he described  bis meeting with tlm deceased stated-  man at. Niagara Falls in August, 1S96.  "I was staying at the Clifton houso, on  the Canadian side, Li having boen accompanied to Niagara Falls' by a representative of the United States government. He crossed to the Canadian side  and w brought him up stairs in a sort,  ���of litter. He would not walk. I believe  -at that time he was suffering from somo  infirmity. However, I was told I must  provide earners for his litter, although  lie had a personal staff. Well, we had  a rewption of a ecitain number of people of Niagara and I remember one of  the first things he said to nie was that  ho was glad he was under the British  flag. According to the etiquette of his  ���ccuntry, he began to put. me through my  'lacings by asking mc" how old I was.  "When I told him he replied, 'May you.  honors be as great as your years.'" He  then asked mo why I was riot speaker of  tho house of commons.. I replied that .  i over had any ambition to be speaker,  the more no ue the speaker was a man  who was unable to" speak. Then he  a.-ked no if -the members of the. commons wero wealthy, and I replied, they  ,are wealthy in devotion to their cbun-  'try, at which'-he'smiled very knowingly.  In his suite were about thirty people,  -about b'alf of .whom were princes of high  -tank-and..the remainder personal attend-  ���,'mts. One of the first nariied ;was Leo  3fung, who afterwards became Chinese  ambassador to Great Britain and was  knighted. Leo was.interpreter and with  sucli an intelligent man I found no difficulty in carrying on p. regular conversation. Li did not know a -word of English. I could scarcely believe this at  first, until I caught the change of"expression on his face the. moment he  ^caught the meaning,, through the interpreter, of what I had been saying to  him." " -  A. s*Docial_car was placed__at_the__di3-_  ing a costly coflin of teak wood, beautifully lacquered. This coflin Li Hung  Chang tcok on his trip around the world,  and ho brought if from Canton when he  camo to Pekin to settlo the Boxer  troubles. Since that time it had been  kept in a temple here. The body will  bo placed in the coffin tomorrow with  tho customary rites. On Sunday there  will be a ceremonyOcorresponding to a  lying in state, and all the Chinese of!.-,  cials will p<iy their respects. A separate  day will be designated for the ministers^  of the powers. The body has not yet  been decorated for interment. A memorial was telegraphed to the court announcing his death and a circular sent  to the ministers of the powers. It is  said that when the court received the  news an edict was issued .bestowing  posthumous honors upon the deceased,  and probably advancing him to the rank  of marquis, whicli title will descend to  his eldest son. The ministers of tho  powers are personally sending messages  of sympathy. The first letter received  at the Chinese foreign office came this  morning from Mr. Conger, the United  States consul, saying that secretary Hay  had instructed him to tender tho regrets  of president Roosevelt and the United  States government at the death of the  great viceroy.  The Chinese officials were unable to  obtain communication with prince Ching  today. The governor of Pekin, the provincial treasurer and tho generals commanding the Chinese troops have sent  a -joint telegram to various points recommending prince Ching to proceed and  join the court in order to present to the  court the. facts of the situation in Pekin  before returning "to "tlie". capital. There  are no signs of mourning in" the. city,  although the populace is considerably  excited. The ministers of the. powers  consider Yuan Shi Kai the strongest man  in China after Li Hung Chang.  At the headquarters of the Liberal party  in this city all were jubilant at the news  of the fall of Panama. Dr. Restrepo,  who is the head of the junta here, said:  "All foreign interests will be protected.  Tho isthmus will be kept open and the  Panama railroad guarded from guerilla  attack if necessary. Everywhere its government is established the rights of foreigners will be secure."  COLON, Colombia, Noveniber 7th, via  Galveston.���There is absolutely no truth  in the report circulated in the United  States that Panama has been captured  by the Liberals. No fighting whatever  has occurred. The state of affairs is the  same it has been for weeks past.  THE  MISSOURI  SUSPECTS  pcsal of sir Henri to convey his guest  along the Niagara river and to view the  wonders of that stream. During the trip  -sir Henri received a telegram from the  .manager of the exhibition at Toronto  asking that an effort he made to get the  -.i.itor to come there. To this proposal  the earl assented and manifested the  keenest interest in everything that was  to be seen there  "He was a profound admirer of beauty  in the female form," added his honor,  laughingly, and paid humble homage  to the beauty of Canadian women, or  Gladstone, with whom he had several  conferences, he spoke in terms of great  respect. Seldom have I scon a man who  carried as far as ho did the love of his  fellow countrymen. He often spoke to  ime of his race who had settled in Canada, and the last thing he said to mc as  I bade him goodbye was to recommend  them specially to me, asking me oarn-  ��� estly to take care of ther.i. Ho made me  ,stop the train, too, in the middle of thc  ���night so that, he might give a Chinese  :lady who had married an Englishman,  .and who.was settled in Ontario, an opportunity of seeing him, and he and all  ;his staff treated her with the greatest  Tkindness'."  Sir Henri added that the short interviews he had with him impressed him  deeply.with his great intelligence and  acumen, and he expressed the greatest  regret in hearing of his decease.  Ii Hung Chang's Closing Hours.  PEKIN, Novenrber 7.���The end of Li  Hung Chang was quiet. His vitality  slowly ebbed away. For a time ho'lost  consciousness but he showed great tenacity and rallied at midnight, partook  of nourishment and appeared to vecog-  ���rize his relatives. The foreign doctors  left him early yesterday, saying that  nothing more could be. done. His per-  .-soiml physician, Dr. Watt, then took  charge. The controversy between tho  foreign and Chinese doctors had no effect upon the patient, for he was already  beyond the hope of recovery. The flames  of' paper effigies, chairs, horses, etc.  burned in thc courtyard of the yamen to  ��� carry his spirit, to heaven told the crowd  of officials: who. were gathered in the narrow street that the end had come. Soon  Afterwards a procession appeared bear-  Trying to Force a Confession.  ST. LOUIS, Missouri,- November 7.���  The man and the woman who have been  arrested here suspected with complicity  in the robbery of an express car near  Wagner, Montana, July 3rd last, when  the safe was blownvopen and a consignment of unsigned notes for the National Bank of Helena, Montana, amounting to ?i'.0,0u0 or $100,000 were  stolen, were put through a process of  "sweating" last night. The woman finally admitted that her light name was  Laura Bulliu and that her home was  in Knickerbocker, Texas. Her grand  parents, Byerly . by name, leside at  Douglas. ~ Af-i'/onn . Her. companion.  Longbangh, admitted that he' won  the morey by gambling, as ho at first  stated, and said that in due time he  would prove to the officers how he had  secured it. Then he resumed his stubborn attitude and maintained it. When  the woman was asked by chief.of detectives Desmond. where -she"',', got the  money she said: "Lprigbfiugh gave it  to me. My share of the money was over  $7000 ar.d he had as much." She would  not admit that she had any knowledge  cf his complicity in any robbery or  that she had participated in any holdup. The woman-laid great -rtress upon  the respectability of her grand parents  iand begged tho officers to withhold  the. fact of Iter'arrest from. them. Chief  Desmond it is understood is of opinion^  that Miss Bnllin, disguised as a man,  actually peitieipated in the express  robbery.

MONTREAL, November 7.���The Canadian Manufacturers' Association asked  many things of the government, represented by sir Wilfrid Laurier, Hon. W.  S Fielding and Hon. W. Paterson, at the  Windsor hotel today. They asked for  a railway commission, a direct steamship-service between an eastern port-in  Canada and South Africa and Australia,  and a readjustment of duties on woolen,  iron and other products of Canadian  manufacturers. The -ministers promised consideration. Subsequently Hon.  William. Paterson said "that it was roost  satisfactory to find the manufacturers as  a whole were satisfied with the present  tariff, but admitted that there was reason for changes.  HALL MMW CO.

Conditions ja. Congo Free State.  LONDON, November 7.���Edward Ca-  nisus, au American who recently retired  from the employ of the Congo Free  State, confirms the terrible stories,told  about the condition of the natives, especially in the portions termed the  state domain, where strangers are seldom admitted, .c.anisus, who accompanied major Lothaire, commander of tins  .Belgian troops, in the Congo on his  .recent expedition after rubber, says  ;)00 natives v.ere killed in six * weeics  during that expedition, while a smaller  expedition commandeci by a Belgian  lieutenant, killed 300 natives jn three  weeks. Tho district is pracitcally under  martial law, and on the strength of it  such barbarities are committed that  the natives are continually terror-  stricken, lie further declares that tin?  so-called punitive expeditions are in reality rubber-squeezing raids conducted  wit': such iniquitous methods that tho  natives are in a constant state of revolt. While t.he conditions are somewhat improved in the territories worked by tho concession companies, the lot  of tho natives in the state domain,  Canisus declares,, is far worse than. before the advent of the whites. The natives are practically forced to -work,  rubber at the muzzles of rifles, receiving two cents per pound for what is  sold for 75 cents at Antwerp, Thou-,  sands of the natives have fled to the  bush and live like wild animals. Along  the junglo paths the bodies of those  who have died of starvation are frequent sights.  Stories Are Rather Conflicting.  NEW iTORK, November 7.���The Herald prints the following: From a  source of information on the' situation  in Colombia which thus far has furnished no news not subsequently verified* by  wire the Herald has received the copy  of a cablegram saying that the city of  Panama has fallen and is in the complete control of the Liberal party. It is  believed by the New York representative  cf the Liberals that geneial Alban, the  governor of Panama department, is a  prisoner unless he has escaped by sea.  Severe Electrical Storm at Victoria.  VICTORIA, November 7.���It is seldom that lightning in Victoria is sufficiently severe to dazzle the eyes of hundreds, or the thunder so strong as to  make buildings tremble with the vibration of the air. Such, however, was the  unique* experience cf Victorians tlild  morning. The storm lasted but a short  time. The electrical features of it consisted of but. one 'real peal of thunder  and one Hash of lightning, so close  and strong and so utterly foreign to  residents of the eity that hundreds did  not realize until after a few moments'  .reflection'what it was. It dancea on  electrical wires, assumed .curious "shape.:  in  many places,  and  in   one instance  Ji.urled__a=motornian=rroni���his���position"  in, front of a car,: disabling the tram  and sending it to a repair ..hop, for a  new armature.  Too Much Publicity.  SOFIA, Bulgaria, November-7.���Consul-general Dipkinson of Constantinople,  is greatly chagrined because the face  that ho had received a letter from Mis.3  Ellen M Stone leaked out. He says it  is calculated to affect seriously, if not  completely, the progress already acheiy-  ed. On two previous occasions negotiations with the brigands who abducted  the American missionary wore abruptly  broken off by the former, the  premature disclosure of secrets which  the bandits regarded as being a breacn  of the understanding with them.' - Mr.  Dickinson informed a representative ot  the Associated Press today "that it was  absolutely, indispensible. if Miss Stone  was ever to be released,, that tho course  of the negotiations be kept inviolably  secret. Her release is hopeless except  the brigands, place . confidence, in the  negotiators.' ^  -  Csillard Lands at Mitylene.  PARIS, November 7.���5.40 p.m.���A  dispatch from admiral Caillard has just'  been received announcing that he landed  marines on the island of Mitylene this  morning and occupied the customs at  Midilli without resistance.  . The French government has received  satisfactory replies from all the powers,  without exception, to its note explaining the measures taken against Turkey.  An excellent impression has been created  in official circles by the tone of the response of the United States, which is  couched in the most friendly terms.

Tho report, balance sheet ind profit  and  less  account  of  the Hail  Mining  &   Smelting   Company.  Limited,   which  were submitted to the shareholders of  the company at their annual meeting  on Thursday last, reached Nelson, yesterday. While the showing made by the  company  during  the  year's operations  has not been such as would warrant a  stampede for the purchase of the stock  it   is   nevertheless   \ery  .encouraging  when everything is taken into consideration. The report covers the flrst year  of thv company's operations following  its  reconstruction,  and  shows  a,.net  loss on tho year's operations', of -��3659  In  connection  with  this  statement  It  is  worth  remembering,  kcwever,  that  during the whole''of the period covered  by the ieport there were but 5243 tons  of ore shipped from the mine, the bulk  of which was used at the smelter merely as a flux for the treatment pf customs ores. Since the 1st of July, however, and up to the 9th of October, 'ihe  shipments from the mine to the smelter have -been regular, averaging close  upon 100 tons per day. inc total for the  period being 5?.CjO. tho net proceeds from  which were $101,020, or a shade better  than $10 to the ton. With a full year  coerniv ga regular-shipping period it is  easy to understand that n more favor-  al le showing would have  been mad*,  the record  of the mine ,for the threo  mod-is following the--completion of thu  fiscal year indicating net returns to the  mine   from  the-.proceeds  of  ore  shipments  of something over 8350,000  per  annum. This improvement is not alone  due to tho tonnage, as the value of the  ore for tho three month,, following the  completion of tho fiscal year has more  than  doubled-that .shipped during thn  whole of the fiscal year..  In their report lhe directors set out  that the sum of ��24.72S 6s 4d were,  spent in mine development, - of which"  ��5156 10s 4d were charged against revenue, and they expressed their concurrence with captain Gifford in his opinion that thc results attained were very  satisfactory.  With leference to the sme-.ting branch  of the company's business tbe directors  set out that the large furnace was in  blast 268 days, and the small" furnace  105 days, and treatpd in the. aggregate  21,657 tons of purchased ore.. The result of tho smelting operations.-wouU  have been more satisfactory but for the  decline in thc price of silver and lead,  which commencing in. the early part  of the year was continuous throughout  the whole of the fiscal year. The decline  . in the price of these metals was severely felt by the mines upon whosp .out-  ;put=the=smelter=was=dependenti=somo=  of whieh closed down, thus materially  affecting the smelter returns. The directors point out, however, that the results show the business .to be inherently  sound, and under normal conditions  should yield a good profit. The smelter  manager's report is referred to as stating that the company's connection as  a customs smelter wan considerably increased and strengthened, that arrangements with railways for the carriage  of ore have improved, and that with  t.he prospect of continuous work the  board look forward to good results during tho current year.  In explanation of the debit balance  shown in the accounts the directors refer to tho fact that on the beginning  of July there being sufficient ore in  sight, the board decided to convert, tho  small furnace which had been smelting lead ore into a copper furnace for  the treatment of Silver King ore, ami  the profits resulting to the mine therefrom, from. July 1st to September 30th,  were estimated at ��.��,.'.00, while in addition the returns from the smelter to  the same date were approximately  .1.4000. so that the debit balance shown  in the accounts was already more than  arovided for.  The report of captain Gifford, the  mine manager, is of interest as .bowing the work that has been done since  the reconstruction of the company. It  sets out that the work of pumping out  the-mine was commenced on July 16th,  and completed on August- 16th, 1900.  Se.eral months wore lost after this was  clone, as it was found that the machinery, in the mine was not adequate to  the work of sinking tho main shaft,  ahd it was not until tho 26th of the  following January l.hat sinking of the  main shaft was resumed. Sihce the  mine was unforked 2772 feet of work  has been dono in it. Of thi.. the main  shaf. accounts for 208 feet, raising 162  feet, winze sinking 128 feet, and drifting 2274 feet. All of the drifting has  been done on the 6th, 7th, and 8th levels, no work of any kind having be..n  carried above the f>th level. In addition  to the above work 1S71 feet of diamond  drill boring has been clone in the search  for oro bodies.  In speaking of lhe work done on the  No. 6 level captain Gifford .ays the  work on No. fl level west, across tho  vein, was suspended alter 120 feet of  drifting had teen done in search to see  if the ore found in winze K" would continue south, but without success. A  small bunch of ore was found at this  level, but after sinking on it for 57 feot  it pinched out.  No. 6 level east, south vein���In testing the ground to the north of the old  drift run cast by the former management, at fivo feet north of said drift  and 1C0 feet east of the shaft, a good  body of ore was found which in spots  carried high values, from which several thousand tons ot good paying ore  may bo expected. To open this up 14'J  feet of drifting has been dono and the  indications are that thp west limit of the  high grade shoot has been fourid. The  length of this shoot between 'the fifth  and sixth level is about 250 feet, with  an average width of 4% feel. The oro  shoot which contains lhe best values is  at the west end of this ore body, on an  average of about 45 feet in length and  6 feet In width. The vertical depth of  the ore body had not been" ascertained  at the time the report was written, but  the indications were that the rich ore  would go to the 7th level, if not below.  The-. character of this ore as found lu  the rich shoot is bornite and grey copper, with considerable chalcopyrites.  There are no regular walls to the ore  body and the course of the ore Is very  erratic and uncertain, but pufflcient  work has been done to that it ex ���  tends below the level of the present  lowest drift, No. 8 level east.  No. 7 level west���About 415 feet of  work has been done on this level to  ascertain if the cross vein?, as found  in the .Bth and 6lh levels, extended  down. When the mine was last nperatei  by the Hall Mines a diamond drill hole'  had been run in from the then end of  the furthest workings west nt a horizontal distance of i'S feet, and 5 feet of  core was taken out which af.sayed 64  ounces, silver and 5.7 per cent copper.  On re-uming work this ore body was  drifted fer.. It \yas found to be very-  bunchy and erratic. 11 was drifted on  fer 70 feet, .when it cut out entirely. A  raise was put in on it. but the streak  was" so narrow that a continuarce of  "work upon it- was not warranted. A  winze was sunk 43 feet ou it, whon  finding tho ore nearly pinched out'  woik was suspended.  ���- No. 7 level east, south vein���A crosscut was s.larted south from the end of  No. 7 level east, to ascertain if the  south vein ore body continued down  The crosscut was run 135 feet. At about  90 feet a" good body of ore was found  and wan drifted on east for a distance  of 80 feet and west for a distance" of 10  feet. The ore found bore tho same character as in the levels above, no walls,  very bunchy and very erratic in its  course. When first cut the width of ore  -wat3 14 feet, - narrowed down  when drifted on to 4 feet A careful estimate of the ore found at this level  was 10 ounces silver and 5 per cent copper. The length of the oro body at this  It; - el is 250 feet.  No. 7 level east, main vein���About  240 feet has been drifted east on the  main vein, but no ore of sufficient value  to pay expenses was found. The lode  so far as drifted upon averages about  8 feet in width, and at certain points  small strii.-gers of high grade ore were,  found, but not in paying.quantities, yet  the ledge showed marked improvement  in chaiacter iu comparison to what haj  been shown up by drifting- on the same  vein in the No. 6 level.   -���'*..  No. 8 level���A crosscut was run  about 330 feet, uearly due. south from  the main shaft, to ascertain if the cm-is  vein ore bodies extended down, but  without finding anything. About 210  .feet=from=_tho^shaft=the=fouvh=dyke=wasi  cut through. At a distance of 180 feet  from the shaft a drift war. staited .east  to search for the south' vein ore body.  At a distance of 200'feet frum the crosscut a bunch of ore wus cut through  about 13 feet in width, the assay value  of which was 14 ounces in i-ilver in-1  4V2 per cent copper.  Main shaft���Thc main shaft has been  sunk from the No. !���' level station 10S  feet. No. 9 and No. 10 Maticns have be'.n  cut and drifting from these points has  been started to find thc values of th-j  main south veins at this depth. To  ascertain this about .f>0 feet will have  to be driven on the .'ith level and about  550 feet on the lOllt level, assuming  thero is no change in tho dip of thc  veins.  In speaking of the ore reserves captain Gifford points out lliat It is not an  easy matter to make calculations as  to the amount of ore in sight in such  ore bodies as there aro in the Silver  King, and for this reason in making  an estimate, he has endeavored to be  as conservative as possible. He estimates that there are in the No. 6 level  10,400 tons of an assay value of 16  ounces r-ilver and.4.5 per cent copper.  Between No. 6 and No. 7 levels 6000  tons of ar. assay value of 12 ounces silver and 3.5 por cent copper. Between  No. 7 and No. 8 levels S500 tons of an  assay- value of 14 ounces silver and 3.5  per cent" cupper. Total 19,900 tons. He  offered no estimate as to what might  be found below No. K level, yet from the  time the oro was cut there the drifting  has shown that tbe best ore was in the  bottom of the drift.  With respect to proposed development work the captain says the only  work he can outline is the running of  the 9th and 10th levels, as everything  with regard to the future will depend  upon tho results of thc work in theso  levels. He recommended the installation of a 30- drill compressor to be operated by electric power from Bonnington Falls, a quotation having been received from tho power company for the  supplying of power at tho rate of $-10  per annum per horse power. He furthor  recommends that the tramway bo operated in one length, as wa_ done when  it was first installed, which would effect a saving of ��7000 per annum in  the maintenance of tho outer station.  He concludes his report with the observation that considering the fact that  work was started in July last without  a pound of oro in sight, and tliat active  development was not commenced until  January Seth, the result of operations  have been very satisfactory.  Accompanying the report is a cable  message forwarded by captain Gifford  bearing date of October Oth, which is  much more encouraging than anything  contained lu the report itself. This  shows that the value of the ore in tho  6th, 7th, and Sth- levels has considerably in creased.and that the net returns  to the mine from' ore phlpments for a  period of 100 days.prior to that date  had been over SluOO per day. The message reads: "Estimated leserves of ore  (broken down) in stopes at that date  1200 tons; average - ��ssay value 13  ounces e.'lver and C per cent copper.

WASHINGTON,   November   7.���After  a sitting covering forty days and with  a record   which   when   completed   will  cover about 2000 pages, the Schley court  of inquiry today at 3:45 p. m. adjourned  its last public session.   To captain S. C-  Lemley, the"judgeradvocate, had been assigned the duty of making the closing  argument in the case and soon-after-he  had    completed. his    speech    admiral  Dewey, bringing his gravel down'upon  the big table, said:    "There being no  further,   business,   this   court   is  -adjourned."   As was  the  case  yesterday  when Mr. Raynor spoke, the attendance  was large.   There was only one session  during the day.    It began at 2 o'clock  and was devoted   to captain   Lemley's"  address.   He read his speech in clear and  distinct tones and was given careful at-  tetion.   This speech in the main was an  analysis of testimony   and   conclusions  drawn.   Frequently there was criticism  from   counsel   present.     Speaking   of  commodore   Schley's   conduct,   captain  Lemley .aid:    "From my knowledge of  the man, having served under his command on two services, I have never believed nor do I claim from the evidence  that personal misconduct or, to call a  spade a spade, cowardice, was exhibited  by commodore Schley in any part-of his  career   as   cbmmander-in-cliief   of - the  flying squadron.   But I submit with regret that the passage from Key West to  Cienfuegos, while at the latter port, en  route to the southward of Santiago without settled   destination,  in   the   retrograde movement, in the return toj/ho  -vicinity-of-Santiago^and=iri=thcrafi'alr"of"  May 31st the commodore exhibited unsteadiness of purpose and failed to obey  orders."   This statement was made toward thc close of captain Lemley's remarks. After adjournment the members  of the   court met admiral Schloy    and  many   affectionate   words   of   farewell  were spoken. AdmiralSchley as usual was  ealled upon to receive the greetings of  a number of admirers   and  a   hundred  more' people waited at the door of the  building to bid him adieu.  ESCAPE  DESPERATE DASH FOR LIBERTY IN KANSAS.  BY THE AID OF TWO BEVOLVJ3RS  TWENTY-SIX PBISONEBS    *  GET AWAY.  LEAVENWORTH,,' Noveru-i  ber7���One man was killed,'three others  dangerously wounded and 26 convicts  are at large as a result of a mutiny-  late this afternoon at the site of ifyi  United States prison, two miles southeast of here, where 400' prisoners from  tho federal , pi ison in ��� charge of ;��  armed guards, were at work. When tha  trouble began tho rebellious prisoners  had only two revolvers. These had beeu  secreted in one of the walls of the  building by some unknown persons.  When T. E. Hands, superintendent of  construction,  and  three  aimed, guards  prepared to round up the. men' at tkc|_  end of the day's, work, the armed convicts covered thera with revolvers au.l-  encoursged by tbo other mutinous ccn-  .victs  forced   the  men  to  walk  befora  .them to the northwestern corner of the  stockade, where they expected to make -  a'rush  through   the  opening.   On   the  outside of the stockade was an armej  guard and the convicts weie met at the  opening by- C. E. Burrows, a guard, who '  fought thera back, but who received two  shots ia the reck.  The convicts then '  ri'shed  over to  the   nouth   wall   to an,;  opening thero and were met by Arthur  Treelford, an armed guard, who is,m-  chargo  of  all   the  convicts. > Treelfordl  resisted   tho   convicts   and   was   snot  twice,   but   not   dangerously .wounded.''  -Defeated in their "attempt to escape at' "  ttis point the men rushed to,'the guard  house,    a   temporary    frame    structure  where the arms are kept. The guards  from the outside rushed ijrat this,point  and drove thb convicts__away from" the  guard house. J. D. Waldrupe, a guard,  shot and killed Ford Quinn from Ryan.  I. T. Thc prisoners then made a rush'  for tbe main entrance and 26 of  succeeded in escaping.  The men went  in   the  direction   of  lTa. ton.   Missouri,  and it is leported here that they held  up   many   farmers,   taking   horses   and  clothing.   They  are   being  pursued   by;  the Fourth cavalry from Fort Leavenworth.  Turkey Comes to Time.  PARIS, November 7.���-The French  government is fairly satisfied with the  progress already achieved in the dispute  by tho naval demonstration. The sultaa  has promised to. settle all monetary  claims and has offered guaranties which  falls little short of those demanded.  France, however, will insist on full  guaranties and will also consider Turkey's evasion of treaty rights bofore  evacuating Mitylene. No international  complications are anticipated in view  of tho powers responses to France's  notes and no trouble is expected on the  island Itself. -  For Closer Trade Relations.  BUFFALO, November 7.���Next Thursday the boards of trade of a large number of leading cities of the United States  will have representatives in Washington  delegated to call upon thc president and  solicit bis interest in the matter of closer  trade relations between the United  States and Canada.

The  union men at Northport had a jubilee  last night for l.abarthe's appointment.  Many of them have worked under aim at  Trail, and they all appear tr; regard his  appointment as a welcome change from  Bela Kadish.

There,is a stretch of country along,  the   international., boundary   line   west  from   Midway, to .Princeton   that   is  without railway,facilities.

For tho first time Mark Twain is tak-  j, ing,part in a political campaign.    It is  not a particularly active part, but it is  I-articularly   earnest   and   active.     The  humorist declares  that people will not  take him seriously, except under protest,  , but ho tries to keep il.�� ludicrous-out of  j'Jiis efforts now.   He is for" Seth Low for  \ mayor, hut not so much been use he is an  admiier of Mr.  Low  as ^because  ho  is  against Tammany.. He says ho thought  in earlier days that Tammany was unconquerable,   hut  ho  has  changed,  and  now* believes lhat Manhattan can throw  off the yoke, and vote for chief Croker a  permanent vacation.    At first his work  for thc ynti-Tamirany ticket was limited  to interviews with police officers, and he  was soon convinced that he had found  "fruitful soil.    Ho interviewed the members of the force who passed his gates  at Rivordalc. and who met him in  his walks, and ihe results-were cheering.  ���There could be no happier illustration of  Mark Twain's gracious confidence in his  fellow-creatures than his statrmenrs of  trust in the secret desire of these polia.-  ���inen to see the presont city government  ���overthrown.  > Up iri the quiet precincts of Rlverdalo,  -v. hero Mr. Clemens and his family took  ���possession of the old Appleton mansion  three weeks ago, there is the right kind  of atmosphere for dreams of T.liat kind.  The house looks down upon the placid  Hudson. The fine, old trees, nearly bare  of leaves, arc the home of dozens of  .-squirrels, and when the sun comes out  after a day of autumn rain, they frisk  ���ui- and down the mossy trunks, and gambol and chatter on the lawn, undisturbed  'by their hosts or neighbors. It is rumored that Mr. Croker has under consideration tho idea of moving to Riverdale,  . ���r*nd,_no_icing_this,_Mr._01eniens_said_i_e_  would i'eei safer under the same roof  with the Tammany chief than, elsewhere,  for. all thieves, burglars, and��������� second-  story* men would.surely keep away.  As was to be expected, Mr. Clemens  was asked many times to make some  ppeeches curing the, campaign,   but he  declined.   He gave many reasons..nearl7  all amusing, however seriously worded.  He'said he never could remember what  he had Intended to say when the time  canic'foi- him to speak, and if he spoke  .merely what  occurred  to  him  at  tho  moment he woulC expect to find his remarks very feu lish when thoy appeared  -in print next day.    "I dread a speech,  ���anyway," he remarked, "especially one  ���I make myself."   But.his disinclination,  ���was paitially overcome at last.   He had  .joined the "Acorns," an anti-Tammany  ��� society,   and   he   finally   consented   to  rend b( fore tho members of the club an  -article on tho political situation in Manhattan, which he had prepared for the  North American Review.   Last week he  ���fulfilled his promise, and his article was  a vigorous denunciation of chief Croker,  and  the  great  organization   under   his  control that is responsible for misrule  ��  in New York.  ji      With all its vigor, however, the article  !���;  was hardly an up-to-date campaign doc-  ".   ument.   There was too much of history  if, and long-drawn.parallels in its rhetoric.  ;' It was as sci'thing as his papers on tha  i,'  missionaries in China, but it is not safcir-  l  ical.   In its entire length there was no  :��� flashing of his rapier of wit.    It is a  \ paraphrase   of   Edmund   Burke's   im-  :.;' r-eaohment^of. Warren  Hastings.    The  i   nia-ladministration   of   the   East   India  '-Company is declared to be an English  -example  which   Tammany   has   copied.  [-"Let the   supreme   masters   of  British  '������ India, the giant corporation of the India  i; -Company in London, stand for the voters  I, of the City of New York; let the Great  i-Council of Calcutta stand for Tammany:  'i'let   the   corrupt   and   money-grubbing  :'��� great hive of serfs which c-erved under  i'the Indian Ttirnmany's rod stand for the  i_Ne.v York Tammany's   serfs;    let   the  ���"Warren Hsftings stand for Richard Cro-  : "ker, and it seems to me that the parallel  ; .is exact and complete."  j "  Occasionally the humorist would interject a sentence or two, inspired by the  'j occasion.   Here are the most striking of  "them: \~"'*1  "The Calcutta Tammany���like our  own Tamri'iany���had but one, principle,  one moving spring of- action���avarice,  money lust. So that it got money, it  cared not" a rap about the means and the  riethods. It was always ready to lie,  forge, betray, steal,-swindle,- cheat, rob;  and no promise, no engagement, no con-  tratt, no treaty made by its boss was  ���uorth the paper it was written on or the  polluted breath that utterrcd it. Now,  the mere*I-compare Hastings and, Croker, the more those twins look' undistiu-  guishable. Why, look at that man Croker, and see what he has done for this  town.."... For, is not. its unsanitary condition' and^ its big death rate;: so - muc*i  greater than it has any "^business to *' he,  a sort of assassination ?"  The^address was given in the Myrtle  ,room.ofcthe Waldorf-Astoria, before a  hundred and fifty,-invited guests, nearly  all members of the "Acorns." ,:��� Joseph  Johnson, the great oak of the order,  introduced the speaker. On the platform  were district attorney Thilhin, fceorder  John W. Goff; and judge James A., Blanchard. There were no other speakers.  Mr. Clements' reading was frequently interrupted with applause and. cheers, and,  at its close, the humorist was greeted  with .all the enthusiasm so staid and  self-contained an audience could'manifest. It is to be hoped, however, that  this new reading of an old page from  history will not be followed by further  parallels. Burke and Fox'and Sheridan  ard Grey arraigned Warren Hastings,  and the seven years' trial ruined the accused, but he w;as acquitted in the end.  Croker could wish for no happier conclusion. Seven years' further distinction  ac the center of metropolitan strife, and  then a pension for life from his East  In dia Company of serfs, would not seem  ��� especially dreadful, no matter what history would say of him.  Befcre the hour of the address, Mr  Clemens was the guest of Mr. William F.  King at a dinner in the hotel, and there  were-a dozen others about the board.  Altogether, the evening furnished one  of the * happiest and most picturesque  evonts^of^tho^campaighr^-s^ff���_895r  even clubmen and clubmen's wives aro  thoroughly engrossed in the political  game, and no circle is exempt.  A Comparison.  The official announcement hy the  United States Steel Corporation that, its  not earnings iu the last six mouths exceeded $54,000,000 gives some idea of the  magnitude of this unpareileled aggregation of capital, but the extent.of its operations will be better grasped with tho  help of comparison. The total net earnings of tho Ji871 national banks in tho  twolvo months of 1900, according to tho  controller of the currency, were $69,981,-  810. Ir. twelve months, if its earnings  do not diminish, the steel corporation  will have earned $40,000,000 moro than  all the national banks. It will have  earned, in fact, according to tiie Financier's calculation, as much as all the  banks of every kind in the United States,  their total number being about 14,000.

Laura Faulkner continued her testi.  mony. The clerk informed a representative of the Associated Press that enough  witnesses had been summoned to keep  them going for weeks. There were no  women in the audience. Thc testimony  was largely a reiteration of that previously given. The most dramatic incident today was when. Laura Jackson began her customary badgering cross-examination of the witness. The latter  turned and pointing her finger at the  ���female prisoner vehemently denounced  her as the author of her ruin. The  audience raised loud applause whereupon  the presiding judge threatened to clear,  the court.
