 ���q-  ESTABLISHED   1892  WEDNESDAY  MORNING,   NOVEMBER  6,   1901  DAILY EDITION  A GLOBE-TfiOTTEB  VISITS   HIS   BROTHER  IN  NELSON.  : expeeience:of a venturesome  canadian in various  countries.  David Nelson is in the city o_\ a visit  to his brother "Bob." The two Nelsons  have  not seen  each  other .ior several  years and have not yet completed the  'relation  of  their. eMievienccf.   of*   thoir  |<*i-cla'tion  <T- tlieir "eM-oricnees   to   each  [^either.   The   visitor   has   the   must   to  'tell.      Durins    all "   the     years     that  [''"Bob"   has  been  prospecting  over  the  K'lills   of   the    Kootenays    and    pounding a  drill  in  the hope  of securing a  ',:cinj)cteiice his brother has been globe  l.trottink and  laying in a store of ex-  LorrJcnccs   for just  such  a meeting  as  fjthat jof the past couple of days.  Just how much money David brought  [|uack   with   him   is   unknown,   but   he  hjculd  rot bo very much loser on the  |l;lrip, since, when he started out for Aus-  ra.ialia ho had nothing but the clothes it'  k'.vhich ho Mood. This no doubt accounted for the manner in which ho started,  pie -hipped on a vessel as. an A B. The  'trip occupied close upon  three months  and at the cud of it he was rated one  'of the best sailors in rhe fo'castle. He  ?&peiit a couple of years in  mining in  Australia*,  but it  is  now  eo  long ago  ��� that ino.t of his experiences, have been  (.forgotten.-Prom Australia lie stiuck out  I for  the  Transvaal.  Ho  was   in  .Tchaii-  inesbui}  ii  IMC when it was but a small  '.' town,   and   without   railway   l'ncililie:.,  /his first trip  being" made in or. an o>:  -Twagon.   David   is   of   (ho   opinion   that  \ he might have been there yet had it not  . . been for the war. He wau in Johannes-  '-,' burg at tho time of the ill-fated Janio-  jj son raid."The people who were hehi'id  *;  Jameson flyled themselves tlie Reform  <'   party.   When   tho   raider   flist   crossed  J  tho Transvaal  border the Dutch in Jo-  "I hannesburg  all   made  tracks  f-.r   P">  '   toria. This left the mining town in tho  ._>   hands   of   tlio   Reforri)   party,   ind   its.  J   loaders at ence started  in administering it. Their first move was tlie drafting in  of a  force of police and  about  .000   men   were  armed   and  3t.'.r\-d   lo  drill. David was one of the'.c   TTe wr..  ��i.t an enthusiast, but there was  very  .iltle choice for those  in iho town at  the  time.   Tho  Reform   police was  divided   into   squads   accoiding   to   their  vitionality. On one square there wouln  bo   a   company   made   up   of   Irishmen.  'Further along   there   were   Scotchmen  nnd Colonials and the Ameiicans were  known    as    tho    George    Washington  company. The Reformers had plenty of  arms   When their  movement was well  .-.inrted   they   produced   .000 .-.Lee  Met-  'lord   rifles   aud   several   Maxim   guns,  but tlie work or training th: green men  into their use was more difficult than  had been imagined. Nelson says he pro*- ���  .ably krew as much as any of the town-  guard   of  the-   use  of  firearm-?,   but-hi  could not have loaded his, rifle when ii  -was-sci ved-'out-_o-him-i_-his-li.._-luui-  rtepended   upon   it,   and   as   far  as   the  Maxims: went there was none but a lev,  _ "-ar'mv   men   and   police   knew   anything  about them.  The Reform  party lasted  ���about .even days in Johannesburg.   Bj  this time Jameson had started  on hi.,  victorious  march   to   iJrot��*>iia  and   mot  his Waterloo. It was not so much th��j  fault of Jameson  oj- the men  lie han  with him that his'raid ended so disastrously.   They  did  not  appreciate  tin.  magnitude of the task they had mapped  out for themselves. Tho Boers were well  prepared and they arranged for (he reception of tho raiders with tho precision  -which characterized the first portion of  their ceir-pa.gn with tho British. Jameson   -was   hopelessly   surrounded   and  the only thing left for him to do was  to get out of the mess as best ho could  Then the Dutch came hack to Johannesburg and  it  was time  for  Iho Reform sjmpathizers to get out. The leaders who did not were all roped in and  .ihe reform movement was dead.  ���*?'     Nol.on    remained    ln    Johannesburg  )';' -until the declaration of war. Following  ;t .this the passenger business to the Capo  fi -was very brisk. lie traveled to the Cape  7  almost   as   light   as   he  started   on   his  'i sailing tiip ���from Vancouver This trip  '���to  tho  Cape  comprised   about  all   the  -i liar-Isl-ips of war that came under his  '���'��� personal    observation,   hut   even   thi..  ,'   was -sufficient.  The trip  is about 1000  ,.'   miles   long   but   so  little  consideration  was shown to the women by the refu-  '>   -gees that thoy were onliged to remain  -*   -upon  their  feet throughout the  entire  '���   journey.   When   he   left   Johannesburg-  Nelson did not intend to do more than  1,1 -take a-holirtav until  hostilities should  ... -cease, but a few weeks' experience with  I- famine prices at the Cape and the un-  |'i rertainties  of war  convinced  him  that  V 3*-is   financial   resources   would   not   be  IV -canal   to   the   strain.   He   waited   lon.-  i enough to participate in the.welcome nf  b general Buller'al the. Cape, but did not  '���It wait for him to eat his Christmas din-  ,*"  lier in Pretoria.  During his years of residence in it  - "Nelson, was very favorably impressed  ?! -with the Transvaal as a mining ooun-  i try. The conditions, however, are alto  I aether different from those which oh-  i,*  tain in this province. AH of the man-  V i-al labor is done by blacks. Those aro  \< recruited by the mining companies from  the different tribes, some of them being  brought several hundred miles Tho  usual practice was for the company to  contract for the supply of a bunch ac  so much per head. The man supplying  tho .blocks generally dealt with the  chief of the tribe. The supposition was  that tho commission or head money  was divided between the agent and the  chief. At any rate the chiefs generally  mad*; a draft from their tribes of the  number of men required, and as a rule  the men so drafted went along with  the agent without trouble. All blacks  brought in this way were requited to  Sign an agreement for thiee years'  work. They wore paid at (he rate of  from $15 to $20 per month and found,  and tlie amount paid to the agent for  securing them came out of their wages.  Without the black labor tlie mines ot  the Rand could not work. Tho most  surprisi'jg thing" in connection with  their employment was the facility with  which they learned how to drill, .and  they were worked in the -.nines as close  as llics in a molasses nairel. They had  white superintendents who directed  where the holes should l.c driven and  when the holes were drilled they wore  charged i.nd shot hy the suporiuteu-  dents. Small as their wages appeared  the blacks were a very happy lot. As  a rule they all sang at their work, and  whore there were a number of them  working together thoy sang in choru3  and kept time with thc-ir hammers.  Upon the wages paid by (he companies  the blacks, if they saved their earnings,  could retire for life at tho end of six  years' work. In this reaped they were  not unlike the. whites���they had great  appetites for anything in the way of  stimulant., and the price did not stand  in their way if thev had it. This, together with a general disposition not  to work too hard, resulted in considerable Iosp to (ho companies in the way  of time, the average black not getting  in moie than four days' woik In the  week.  The employment of while miners in  tho Tra.ipvaal is restricted almost exclusively to superintending ihe'blacks  and ir. taking work for the compaiiie.'j  under contract. In the latter case the  manual work is also done by the blacks,  Ihe company for whom tlie work is being done furnishing the labor as woll  as tho other supplies. All company  blacks are fwrnh-br-d with a pa��s and  when found away -from their quarters  aro returned .by llio police, but-the desertions arc .frequent. There are also  some blackr, who refuse to work underground ii- r,ny .capacity, hut there is  no scarcity in the labor market. .  four miles of river. On tho Humber all  traffic is suspended.

He was  accompanied by Frank Tracey, who registered irom Bufialo, New  York.    Both  McDonald and Tracy appeared to have  plenty of money and seemed to wish to  become   acquainted   with   the   country.  About half past 7 o'clock last ovening  Ihe hotel poitor Iooued into McDonald'j  room and found him lying on the* floor  in a pool of blood.

Constable  Weir took McDonald   to   tlm   hospital,  where lie was placed In a ward adjacent  to Albert Miller, who lies between life  and death from an act committed under  similar circumstances.    The razor with  which   McDonald   cut  his   throat  was  found on the floor of tho room.   It was  a new one and had apparently been procured for the purpose.    No reason bj- _  yond a fit of despondency Is assigned  by his friends for McDonald's act.   Tin  gash in his throat was very deep, but  no vital  point was touched.    The doctors say he has a good chance of recovery.  Tho Treacherous Filipino.

In many of the up.own  polling places there'were no votois on  hand when the boxes wero opened at 6  o'clock, but in the more densely populated districts there were crowds at the  polls. In the nineteenth election district, of which state senator Timothy J.  Sullivan is Democratic leader, 560 me>i  voted in the first 42 minutes. The polling places were all closely watched, the  Democrats and the Fusionists each having at least two poU watchers in every  election district. .Two city policemen  were on duty in each election district,  seventy-flvo policemen wero on ressrve  at police headquarters and two patrol  wagons were on hand so that mon could  be hurried to any part of the city where  they might be needed.- Setn Low, Fusion candidato for mayor, \oted at 8  o'clock and 20 minutes later justice William Travois Jerome, Fusion candidate  for district attorney, cast his ballot.

JNEW YORK, November 5.���Seth Low,  former president of Columbia Unlver-J  sity, and four years ago tho citizens union candidate for-mayor of Greater New  York was today elected the second mayor  of Greater New York by a plurality  ranging anywhere from thirty to forty-  thousand, defeating Edward Sheppard  of Brooklyn, tho Democratic nominee.  -The campaign was an exciting one and  the vote, though somewhat less than the  presidential electlon'-a'-yoar ago, was'the  largest ever polled 'in a municipal contest in this counuy. In addition to the  canvass for mayor, public intorest  largely centered in the nomination by  the Fusionists of William Travers Jerome for district attorney - and mayor  Robert Van Wyck by the Democrats for  justice of the supreme court. Both the  candidate for district attorney and justice of the supreme court were voted for  enly in the territory contained in New  York county. Returns received up to  '11 p.m. indicate that Jerome has been  elected by a comfortable plurality and  that mayor Van Wyck bas been defeated.  The latter ran behind his ticket from 15  to 20,000. Returns also indicate the complete triumph of the Greater New York  fusion ticket. Charles Vincent Fornes,  the nominee of the Citizens' Union, and  the Republicans defeating George Van-  hcozen, the Democratic nominee. E. M.  Grout, for the past four years Democratic president of the borough of Brooklyn, now the Fusibnist nomineo for  comptroller, has also defeated W. W.  Ladd, Democrat.. .Reports as received  from the various sections of New York  state show that the Repuolicans will retain control of the lower house of tho  state legislature. In the various mun-  icipalitiy contests reported Irom up the  state, the most interesting elections  noted were those of Albany, Troy, Rochester, Syracuse and Buffalo. rThe city of  Albany will be carried by the Republicans. Senator' David B. Hill took no active part in tho local canvass.   ���  Tho election in Troy was lively, a  number of arrests for Illegal voting being made. Former United States senator Murphy headed tho fight for the  candidate of the Democrats, while former governor Black managed the campaign for tho progressive Domocra.-Rc-  punlican ticket. In Buffalo tho entire  Republican city and county tickc. was  elected, Erastus C. Knight, tho state  comptroller, being chosen mayor. Tho  result In Rochester was close, but mayor  Warner's friends claim his election over  tho Republican candidate. In Syracuse  mayor McGulre, for a number of years  past the Democratic mayor of the city,  wa3 defeated by Kline, the Republican  nominee.  The following papers concede the election of Low (Fusion candidate for  mayor) by a plurality anywhere from  30,000 to 55,000: Brooklyn Daily Eagle,  the Evening and Morning World, Lhe  Evening Journal, the Times, the Horald  and the Press.  Scth Low at 9 o'clock tonight said at  his home where he was receiving election returns: "I suppose il is safe to assume the lesult of the election is nov,  aesured. It Lcars out" wiiat my friend*  have anticipated and 1^ am very much  gratified by the result. 'This is a pleasant outcome of a hard struggle. I appreciate heartily tho splendid support  the newspapers have given this movement. I think they have been a splendid  and important factor in bringing about  the result.  "The outcome of this election is a  splendid vindication of universal suffrage. From all points of tho city ha/o  come the votes that have rebuked the  Tammany orgio of the last four years.  All the patronage of city and limitlea.  money have not availed against the  aroused indignation of the people anil  it is sale to f-ay that absentee government and government for private gain  will not be seen again in New York City  for many a day.   This is no man's tri  umph, but is the people's victory. Th3  agencies that have brought it about are  many. Those who labored so long to  bring about the successful fusion so loyally are entitled to the greatest credit.  For myself, I ask for the generous and  constant support of tho community in  the great task to which it has summoned me, and I dedicate every powoc**  that I havo to its loyal service."  Richard Croker at 8:45 tonight conceded the election of Seth Low, Fusion  candidate for mayor, but Mr. Croker was  not willing at that timo to give up the  county ticket. He said he was very  much disappointed at the BrooKlyn vote,  as he had expected Sheppard to make a  good showing there, it being his home  borough. As to the cause for the defeat  of the Democratic ticket. Mr. Croker  said he was inclined to ascribe it to the  large silent vote and the fact that the  people sometimes feel that thej; want a  change.  Mr. Croker, Maurice Untermeyer and  senator T. D. Sullivan were together at  dinner -tonight and it is said on good  authority that a little late-c Mr. Croker  asked senator Sullivan who he desired  as leader. Senator Sullivan answered  that John F. Carroll would be pleasing  to him. Then and there Richard Croker  abdicated * his leadership of Tammany  Hall and turned it over to John F. Carroll. The party proceeded to Tammany  Hall, whero John F. Carroll was awaiting them. He was apprised of the purpose of Mr. Croker but said nothing. He  accompanied Mr. Croker to tho Democratic club in a cab and going upstairs  remained almost an hour closeted wilh  him. It was after .this conference that  Mr. Croker announced: "This is my  'last campaign." _.    _  ELECTIONS   IN   OTHER   STATES.

SAVANNAH; Georgia. November 5.���  Captain Sam B. Hunter of Macon,  Georgia, representing a company of  English capitalists, has. taking options  ou lands in Dougherty. Lee, Calhoun,  Terrell, and other counties ir this part  of the rtate, and there has been much  inquiry and speculation as to what it  all moans.  A representative of tho Lipton Company of London. Limited, called upon  secretary of state Phillip Cook.iu Atlanta last Friday in reference to a  matter that may mean a great deal to  lhe South, and especially the southern  part of Georgia, and which bids fair  to revolutionize tho farming industry  of the South'.  This was Dr. John Alton of Loudon,  who came duly accredited as the agent  of the company of which sii   Thomas  Lipton is tho president. The public has  been   duly  informed   heretofore  of  Urn  3000 stores which the Lipton company  bas  in  ��.11  parts  of Europe,  the  hea-J-  quarterf of which arc located  in Lon-  clon. The management has found it difficult to supply tho demand for the products of the truck farms, and, after duly  considering  the  magnitude of  the  undertaking,   with   all   the  accompanying  drawbacks.- has hit upon the reheme to  establish   farming stations  at different  intervals in the s-ontheni part of Georgia. In crder to export tho products tb3  company will establish a line of steamers   between   Savannah,   Geoigia,   and  Liverpool,   England.   It   is   proposed   to  bring over  a  thrifty  class of German  gardeners,   and   thoy   will   forve   tho  double   purpose   of   bringing   the   land  up to tho full  measure of its productiveness   and   In   inculcating  the   lesson  of diversified  farming among the "natives " Tho company will establish cold  storage plants  and  will  contract with  the   faimers   in   the   neighborhood   to  take  all  the  products  of their  farms,  raying cash there for them, except the  cottor and corn. This thoy do not propose to touch at all.

Thoy   will   take   all   the-  steers   raised,  and will contract with tho neighboring  farmer for all these things, so that the  farmer  may  be   reasonably  assured   of  a mcrket before planting.  SANDON,   November   5.��� TSpecial ,to  The   Tribune.]���A   good   Uiike "is   re- '-'  ported   from  the  Washington,   in  Mc-'"  Guigan basin, today. The"mine.rs in tha  lower tunnel have broken into a body of  high-grade ore. The extent of the find  is  not yet  known,-but  it is valuable  beyond   a   doubt,   and   establishes   the  Washiigton as a steady producer. Tbe  Washington is one of the oldest properties  in the  Slocan  and  was  at one' ~  time  a  heavy producer,   but  until  recently the property wa3 considere-d to  have been dug out./The former manage- -  ment was poor and involved-the company in  debt.  John L.  Retallack was "  a heavy stockholder .and also a credit"  tor of the company to the.  extent of  S&000. In order to get even he took a"  lease  and   bond   last  summer   on  tho -  Washington   and   the   American   Boy, ���  which adjoins, lie has been working a  small force all summer with rcasonabte .*-  success in the upper levels, but had at  last decided to abandon the lower cross- >.  cut when tho strike was made. The old"  company spent a lot of money'on this-  tunnel in the summer of 1S97, but never *- ���>  exposed any values. .       "     ,     V,  Construction Work Commenced.  PHOENIX, November 5.���[Special to y'  The Tribune.]���The active work^'cbn-.V  struction on the pole lino of Ihe^Cascade/"  Water, Power &  Light Company from    -  Cascade to Phoenix was begun yesterday.  The contract for the erection of the poles - ���  and   the   stringing   of   tho   wires   was-   '���  awarded this week to Lome A. Campbjll  of Rossland, manager of the West Kootenay Power &' Light Company.    B.  O.  Boswell, who was also in the employ-of    ,  the latter corporation  until  the added  improvements to that plant at Bonnington Falls was'discontinued as a result J,  of the Rossland   strike,   has   been  ap- ���"  pointed superintendent  of   construction  of the new Boundary power line.   Both  gentlemen  were  in  Phoenix  yesterday  making arrangements to push, the work  as fast as possible.   Between 50 aud 60 ���  men will be employed and a large sharo '  of them have already started to work.  For the time being headquarters for the  construction   gang  will   bo   located   .it  Hartford    Junction,    two   miles    froni,-  Phoenix.    The poles for the. new ling -  have been distributed along tho right-of-   *  way for some weeks, and the cross-arms    ��  were recently also distriuuted.  The right-of-way has been cut out-  fiom Cascade to Phoenix, a distance of  21 miles, and is 132 feet wide. Two sep-  erate duplicate lines will be put up of tho  most substantial and up-to-date description, and every possible means will be  used to ensure a continuous current being maintained. The heaviest copper  wire will be used to this end.  ���A-contract-has-also-bcen-let-for-^tho������  construction of the power house at Cascade, whicli will be, according to the engineer's plans, 200 foot long by 15 feet  wide. John Copp of Rossland has beau  awarded the contract for the erection of  the power house and head works at  Cascade. It is estimated that the two  contracts will amount to between $50,-  000 and ?60,0C0.  The owneis of tho Cascade water  power stand in the unique position of  having business awaiting them as soon  as> they get the lino constructed and in.  operation. Both the cities of Gi ecu-  wood and Phoenix will use the power  for lighting purposes as soon as it is  available, and it is anticipated that a  number of the mines in the Boundary;  will also utilize it at no distant date.  ���fi  i "\  ���!���-, Jj  ** '"'ft  "  ���, ^1  "-   1    '^'it  '*       -\-*-  - r-M  'i A.

The  proposed by-law is a. jug-handled one,  and the manager of the West Kootenay  Power & Light Company has hold of tho  handle.    Section 4 of the proposed by-  la.y* contains the "nigger in the woodpile."   The W. K. P. & L. Co.'s nigger is  the word "minimum." That word means  that at no time can the city tako less  than so much power,  no matter if it  should not need one-half of the mini-'  mum amount. of   power   used   in   any  month during the life of the agreement.  The city must pay for J.00 horse-power  from  the beginning   of   tho   agreement  whether it uses it or not    Should the  bityuse 151 horse-power in January, it  must continue to   pay   for   150   horsepower for the remaining ten months of  the", year.    Should  201  horse-power  be  used  in* February, then the city must  pay for 200 horse-power for the remaining nine months of the year.    Should'  the city use 251 horse-power in March,  then the city must pay for 250 horsepower for the remaining eight months  of  the  year, notwithstanding the fact  May, June, July, and August/The average property owner  will   imagine ��� that  $4500 a year is not much to pay for 100  additional horse-power for a year.   But  suppose the city, from natural causes, is  required to obtain. 300 horse-power in  February, during extreme low water, the  city must then pay for SOOfhorseypower  for ten months in the year, or J10,2",0  for power for ten months, although th-3  city may not use 50 horse-power during  seven months   of  that  time.   Had  the  city gone to the West Kootenay Power  & Light Company and said:    "We will  take 100 horse-power  from   you  for  a  year, with the understanding that if we  need more during the. months   of  low  water, and you can supply it, we are to  have it for the time actually used at the  same rate per horse-power as Ave pay for  the 100   horse-power,"   the   city, would  have been protected, and the West Kootenay Power &  Light Company would  hot have been   treato-.i   unfairly.    The  mayor is reported.as saying, the city  officials will see that no more than 100  horse-power  is  ever  used.    Then  why  contract for more than 100 horse-power?  City officials.cannot always.control the  elements, and those who follow mayor  Fletcher and alderman Selous may be  just as negligent of .the city's interests  as these two   worthy   gentlemen   have  been. Every property-owner should carefully read the by-law   before   marking  his or her ballot, and if they do the cros..  mark can only be placed against its ratification.    '  The manager of the-West Kootenay  Power & Light Company says that the  machines in the .city electric light station are not eflicient.   He says the Edison machines, which have been in constant use for six .years show a loss of 16  per cent of efficiency, that is, they show  84   instead   of   100   per   cent   efficiency  They are rated   as having  a   carrying-  capacity of 2500   16   c.p.   lights.    They  therefore should- not   carry, oyer  2100  lights.    How many are they carrying?  According to the city   electrician's   report   Ihey   are   carrying  2475   16   o.p.  lights, .or 375. more   than   they   should  carry.   According to the managor of the  W. K. P. & L. Co., tho alternating machine, which has been ih use since the*  fall of 1899, or only two years, is not  efficient by 30 per cent.   It is 70 instead  of 100 per cent efficient.   It is rated as  a 2500 16 c.p. light machine.    Seventy,  per cent of 2500 is 1750.    According to  Mr. Campbell that   machine   has .been  carrying 1900 lights, or 150 more than  its: present   capacity.     These   figures  ���would-show-that-t.he_citv's nlant- is.over____  loaded 525 16 c.p. lights, or to the.extent that could be remedied by using 553.  of Mr. Campbell's electrical horse-power,  for is he not supplying 1900 lights now  with 117 horsepower? Yet in order; to  get the 33~horse-power.which.lt really  needs, the -city must take and pay for  100 horse-power,, according to the bylaw that has been so skillfully arranged  between    Mr..    Campbell    and    mayor  Fletcher.   According  to  the statements  of the  manager of tho West Kootenay Power  &   Light  Company,  Limited,   of  Rossland,  that company is  now, supplying  Nelson, with 117 electrical ltoise-powoiv  In other words,  it  takes 117  effective  electrical, horse-power   to   supply   efficient lights to all those, who were formerly served by the alternating dynamo  which is now in a repair shop in "Spokane.   That  alternating  dynamo  when  in use is belted to a Pelton wheel that  was guaranteed to develop 185 effective  horse-power. If the Pelton develops -IS;,  effective,horserpower anc' all the light3  on the  dynamo  to  wliich  it is belted  only��� require J17  horse-power . to make  therh effective, what beccmes of the d'i  horse-power the Pelton wheel develops  that is not used?. There is a screw,loose  somewhere. The Peltcn wheel must be  loafing .or the-alternating dynamo must  be out of order. Which, is it?

Bapst, '.councillor of tho.  .French legation at Constantinople,'-pro-,  sented to the Turkish government asking how Turkey proposed to pay the  ._orando claim and reiiuestiiig satisfaction regarding France's rights. The  correspondent here of the. Associated  Press is enabled to make the following  statement. When the French government .decided to send a squadron to  Turkish waters, it debated: whether to  " seize ' th'o customs at Salonica. Bierut,  cr Smyrna, as it was realized thai,  only the receipts of cue of ��� thesn  three big ports could produce . u*  sufiic.ient sum to'pay off the French  claims wiihout a long occupation, which  was coi.sidered inadvisable. The choico  of M. Delcasse fell on Smyrna, which  offers ;.dvantagcs eriual to the other  ]:orts without having Their political  drawbacks. Saturday, however, came  " .the difpatch from M. Bapst announcing  ~~ 11ter-: e,s ning-of- the-^sultairs���irade^ac^  cepting tho I-orando claim in its on-  tircty, as France had demanded. Tho  necessity* for seizing big customs therefore became loss pressing, but the necessity of occupying Turkish territory  in order to exercise pressure and in  eider to compel the porte to accede to  the demands of French treaty rights  still remained urgent. The government  therefore decided that admiral Caillard  should occupy a couple of ports on tho  island of Mitylene, which is conveniently close to' Smyrna. The French  government, however, trusts that the  whole difficulty will shortly be arranged  _ io thoir fatisfaction.  An official dispatch announces the  arrival of admiral Caillavd'-.-. squadron  this morning at the island ot Mitylene.  LONDON, November 5.���According  to a dispatch, to a French, news agency  _ho French squadron has arrived at  Smyrna, and has seized, three .ports on  the island of Mitylene.  The British government has had no  request from Turkey such as announced  by the Constantinople coi respondent  of the Echo do Paris to fulfill tho terms  of the constitution of 1S7S-, hy which in  exchange for. the island ,-of Cyprus  Great Britain guaranteed the integrity  of the sultan's  Asiatic  domains.  PARIS,. November 5.���The following  dispatch . was received from' "admiral  Caillard: Mitylene, November 5.���11: .0  a. Jn.���'Armored division, arrived nt  Mitylene. The dispatcn does not mention any incidents attending the landing, but it seems certain that the  French commander carried out his instructions by seizing three ports of thr:  island. Ono cruiser nnd three torp.Klo  boats got separated from the squadron  owing to the speed of the latter. The  dispatch beat Moutte, which had joinod  the squadron, was sent to meet them  rind accompany them to Mitylene.  Canadian Cmoiits R^a-iti Samoa  APIA, October 12.���Captain J. C. Voss  and A. K.

One of tho Nelson applicants  has received the following reply to an  inquiry set on foot by himself: "Whon  in Toronto about -che beginning of October I called at the crown lands office  with regard to your claim for land. I  was told by one of the men in tho office  that nothing was being clone at- present .and tha some new regulations and  .ery likely a new act of parliament  would have to be passed before and action could be taken beyond simply fl!  ing applications.
