RATEPAYERS PLAINLY INDICATE  THEIR WISHES AS TO OWNERSHIP OF UTILITIES.  Yesterday the property-owners of  Nelson voted on a by-law under which  an agreement was to be entered into  between the city and the West Kootenay Power & Light Compauy for the  purchase of auxiliary power for operating the city's electric lighting system.  The by-law was supported by mayor  Fletcher and ex-mayor] Neelands and  by aldermen Selous and Paterson aud  Gillett and Hamilton, and was opposed  the   by-law   was   by  property   owners  Those who favored the proposed deal  did for several reasons; among others,  that users of electric light wculd get  better light, that the tramway company  would be assisted, and that the city was  not in a position to put in an adequate  power plant of its own on Kootenay  Those who opposed the by-law did  so" because the deal was too one-sided,  in that -che city's inteiests were not  protected; and because^ it was a mere  makeshift that would indefinitely postpone action on the part of the city in  putting in its "own power plant on Kootenay river. 3  '��� Those who favored the by-law had a  fairly good organization; they had  hacks and workers arid a mayor and  four aldermen!  Those who opposed the deal were not  organized, and the vote polled against  the by-law was by property - owners  who'do their own thinking, and are not  swayed by the blandishments of class  fir the importunity of "grafters."  The tramway company was much in  evidence, as was the J manager of the  West Kootenay Power & Light Company.-Alderman Selous looked after tho  fair.sex of the.local 400, and saw to it  that thoy all voted. Mayor Fletcher and  alderman "Gillett-were ably assisted by  deacon Cameron and '���sal estate broker  Ga'mble, while Charles Augustus Waterman saw to it that cx-mayor Houston  did not intimidate the returning ofllcer  and the efficient poll clerk in the East  Ward.  Ex-alderman Kirkpatrick and "Black  Bill" McLean and "Little Billie" McLean and "Bill' McCandlish and alderman Irving and alderman Madden and  "Charlie" Wilson- did most of lhe rustling that was done on the side of the  party that have faith in'Nelson's ability  to run its own business affairs without  outside assistance.  There were few incidents worthy of  note, and the contest was conducted in  good spirit. After the result was known,  a tramway director got a trifle ugly,  and wanted to battle with a man who  had more sense than to quarrel over a  "fifht^tHa^hM^heeif^lr-^dy^^won.  The brooms and marching lamps that  were to have been used in the procession  had the by-law carried were left unpacked, and were taken back to Rossland on the 6:40 train.  During the evening none of the bylaw supporters were in evidence, except  Charles Augustus Waterman, and he  was bemoaning his financial losses.  The vote stood��� For Against  East Ward   .. ...........118 99  West Ward  .... ....  89 51  Total    ...207 150  Tho total vote was 357, three-fifths  of which is 215. The by-law lacked 8  votes of the number required to carry  it.  ENTIRE FAMILY MURDERED  Horrible Crime Near Los Angeles.  LOS ANGELES. November 19.���The  dead bodies of A.

When the president lay stricken ;  in Buffalo, though hope beat high in aU '  our hearts that his life might be spared;'"  for future usefulness" to his country, it -.  was still recognized as improbable thaU '.  he should��be able to keep the,engage-!.;  ment he had made to be with you to-;'  night and your committee did me the o  honor to ask me to come to this place.  This I have sometimes done in his life  time, though always with diffidence and  dread, but how much more amThaunted  by the duty of appearing before you  when that great man, loved and revered  abovo all, eveD while living, has "put on  the august halo of immortality. .

J  I am asked to say something about our  diplomacy. You want from me nothing  but the tTuth and yet if I confine myself to the truth I cannot help fearing  I shall do my profession a wrong in tha -  minds of those who have been in the  habit of considering diplomacy an occult'  science as mysterious as^the Almighty ~  and as dangerous to tho morals as mu- "  nicipal politics. It must be admitted  that this conception of the diplomatic  functions is not without-a certain historical foundation. There was a time "  when diplomacy was a science of intrigue and falsehood, of traps and mines  and counter mines. It may be another  instance of that credulity with which I  have often been charged by European  critics when I say that I really believei  that the world has moved onward in  diplomacy as in other matters. - In my  experience of diplomatic life, which now,  covers more years than I like to look  back upon, and in the greater record  of American diplomacy which I have  studied, I can say without hesitation'  that we have generally told squarely  Jwhat-we_wanted.lannouriced earlyjn^the  negotiations what we were willing tfl  give and allowed the other side to accept or reject our terms. During tho  time in which I have been prominently  concerned in our foreign relations I  can also say that we have been met by  thc representatives of other powers in  the same- spirit of frankness and sincerity.  "If wo are not permitted to boast ot  what we have done we can at least say  a word about what we nave tried to do  and the principles which have guided  our actions. Tho briefest expression  of our rule of conduct is, perhaps, thel  more direct and the golden rule. With  this simple chart we can hardly go far  wrong. 1 think I may say that our sister republics to the south are perfectly  convinced of the sincerity of our attitude. They know we desire the prosperity of each of them and peace and  happiness among them. We no mora  want their territory than we covet the  mountains of thc moon. As to what we  have tried to do���what we are still try- ���  ing to do���in the goneral field of diplomacy there is no reason for doubt on  the one hand or reticience on the other.  President McKinley in his messages during the last four years has made tho  subject verv clear. We have strived,  on the lines laid down by Washington,  to cultivate friendly relations with all  powers, but not to take part in the  formation of . groups or combinationa  among them. We have sought, successfully, to induce all the great powers to  unite in a recognition of the general  principle of equality of commercial ac-,  cess and opportunity in tho markets  of the Orient. Wo consider our position in the Pacific ocean as great now  as that of any other power and destined  to indefinite developments. We have  opened our doors to the people of Hawaii; we have accepted the responsibility  of the Philippines which Providence imposed upon us. We have put an end to  the embarrassing condition in which we  were involved in Samoa, and while  abandoning a number of commercial  rights in the entire group wc have established our flag and our authority in Tu-  tuila, which gives us the first harbor in  the south sea. Next in order will come  a Pacific cable nnd an isthmian canal  for the use of well disposed people, but  under exclusive ownership and American control, of both of which enterprises presidents McKinley artd Roosevelt have been energetic and constant!  champions. .��� ._   ..,..*. .:L^_____u��s_ti   '  ���rA  -���'V-1  "*" '"]  "���' .15  .- -yZ'  -XX''&1  >&  ���"*vl  #1  G5I  '���il.uA ��_������9*3?_js*��rt*a!  teftiNA".iiYj^*#i!*i  -*VTi��ir4'-v-*r"'*B*17fa"" '  "���'���*������"  li**  I',  lr'  TM JCftgQK ttMBUMI, WlMftbAf MOMIOT, mfMMM '89, 1301  ��������*���j���.^���., ��� ���..������  i i  i   ...j i. .�� ��� .  ��� ...���.������..       m __,___.___.._. ___.���__.. ik ..    ���   ���  -   .   ->^- .. -.     . _, i      i _���        in ���    j - .

They put themselves on record as being ' in favor' of the" installation of a  power plant ori Kootenay river. They,  flrst, secured a water record from Kootenay river; then they applied to purchase a piece of land in every way suitable for a power station; and they-left  their successors- in oflice a fair fleld.

Ltd.  John Houston. Manager. Nelson, B. C.  There is to be a change made at rho  postofflce in Nelson. The postmaster is  to be placed, on salary and made a civil  servant. This is not because of any  charges' having been preferred 'against  postmaster Gilker, who han held the office since 1889; but merely because it is  against the rules of the:department-to  aJIow a salaried postmaster to carry  on any other business. Postmaster Gilker knows there is more money  and less nagging and worry in selling  clothing tlian in selling postage- stamps,  and has so notified the postofflce department. Hence the change.  ~rThe"above"goes'tcrsh"ow"th"artKere are'  two elements in Nelson. One lis in  favor ofcivi2 ownership of public utilities, and can always be trusted when  that question is an issue.' The other is  opposed to civic ownership of anything  that can be operated by private "capital, and they can never be trusted.  j The Miner started out all right in the  campaign that ended at 4 o'clock yesterday afternoon; but it chaDged front  on the last day���and lost its good character.  Yesterday   The   Tribune   stated   the  city   had   treated   the  West   Kootenay"  Power: &   Light  Company  fairly,  and  cited' an .instance in which they were  allowed to sell power and light within the city limits for nearly two years  without  having paid  the  city  a  cent  for  the  use  of a  pole  line  that had  cost the close on to ?1000. This is a  statement that can  be  easily verified,  If  the  city  has  been  so  liberal  with  the West Kootenay Power & Light Company for two years when a single firm's  interests were involved, does it not appear as if the company might not return the compliment now that the city  needs about 50 horse power to help it  tide over the winter? Had the council  approached the West Kooteuay Power  &   Lighi   Company   as   business   men,  and not as mendicants, the chances arc  the city would have got what it really  | The Tribune has helped the common  every-day people in Nelson to win one  mere victory over the self-constituted  ';hest class."

Savings Bank Branch  OTniBKNT RATK OF INTEREST PAD_.  THE POLITICAL REFORMER  A Fable by George Ade.  Once upon a time a Member of the  Graduating Class advanced hi3 left  Foot:i and talked for fifteen 'Minutes  about  "The College  Man in Politics."  Some 400 other seniors in various  fresh-water Institutions had sprung the  same scolarly Discourse, including Gestures. But this Young Man thought that  he was breaking new Ground. Ho had  discovered the Formula for a Poultice  that would draw all Wickedness out of  the Body Politic. He had a large, snow-  white Utoptian Scheme for turning the  Rascals out and filling all the Offices  with pale Chaps who wore Specs and  talked gramatically.  To the Collegian, seated among the  Sofa Pillows and twanging the Banjo  in the Gloaming, this whole Business of  Reforming the Universe is as simple as  A. B. C. _      ^    .,  The first thing to do is to educate the  Masses. After that, induce Business  Men to atend "Primaries and" take an  interest in Ward Politics. Then fill all  the Minor Offices with learned Gentlemen of unimpeachable Character, -and  thero you arc! ���,-,���,  The Graduate delivered a good liarct  Roast on the respectable Stay-at-Homes.  He struck straight from the Shoulder  at the Prominent Citizen who is so busy  with his income that he refuses to get  out and give his Time and Money to the  glorious Work of  Municipal Reform.  When he returned home he told his  Father all about liis plans for redeeming  the City and State.  "Forget it!" said his parent. 'Chuck  if    Take something for it."'  "I have fitted myself for a Career,  said the Young Man. "I am away up  on Tariff Reform. The law of Supply  and Demand is- simply Nuts for me.  I can repeat the Constitution with mv  eyes shut, and can quote John Stewart  Mill by the Yard. It is a Shame to  smother these gilt-edge Talents ma  Manufacturing Business. The University  Man owes a certain  Debt to  Society.  "You bet he does!" said thc Old  Gentleman, warmly. "And if he doesn't  mind his P's and Q's, Society will throw  him down and choke him and take !t  away from him." .  "You don't seem to bank very mucn  on Unselfish Patriotism," said the Son.  "You are the Type of Commercial Cynic  that I walloped so hard in my Oration.  Personally you wouldn't blow a Safe  or climb a Porch, and yet you refuse  to Buckle on the Armor and attack the  Forces of Evil. If you don't want, to  fight the Battle of the People, at least  you might stand on the Side-Lines and  root for Honest Government."  "I rooted for one or two campaigns,  replied the Father, "and when I wanted  to get a Permit for a Switch-Track to  tlie Factory, the Forces of Evil looked  up my Record and immediately gave me  tho Boots, as it were. Fortunately, I  was acquainted with an Agent of Darkness named Fatty Dinkle. Mr. Dinkle's  '"HeadTises-straight-from-liis-collar���I-  regret to say that he is Managing Editor  of a Thirst Parlor, with a Crap Game upstairs and'a Dope "Laboratory in the  Basement. Mr. Dinkle squared me with  the Gang and I got my Permit. Iu spite  of Gratitude, I slipped him $500 for his  Campaign Fund. Since then wo have  been "good friends. He sees that our  Vested Interests do not get the Short  End of it at.the City Hall. All that no  asks in return is a little Remembrance  along about Election Time, and then an  X opposite his Name on the Official  Ballot. I would have preferred to get  tho Permit through thc Agency of our  Sunday School Superintendent. 1 regret to sav, however, that he has no  drag, so I had to get next to someone  who could deliver the Goods. Perhaps  you with your wide knowledge of Political Economy and the Principles of  Government, can you tell me of some  other scheme that I might have used.  As you know, I am a-Pillar of the  Church and do not use Tobacco in any  form, therefore it revolts .me to be  friendly with a Bum-Seller, but we had  to have the Side-Track or shut up shop.  To be sure, we might.have stood out.  We might have taken a Tip from the  College Oration and refused to compromise with the Practical Politicians,  if we had done 'so, I have a large  Oil Painting of our Competitors chipping in freely- to protect us in our  Rights."  "When the Masses are Educated such  men as Fatty Dinkle will not sit in the  Council Chamber," said tho Student.  "I thought of that at the time," said  the Old Gentleman, "and I decided that  we should have to wait 200 years to  get that Permit via the Education of the  Mosses. AVe were in a hurry to got the  Plant working and decided that we  could not wait that long. The average  Hustler of today cannot Educate the  Masses with one Hand and meet Bills  with the other. But if you want to  get Into Politics and scour it up and  deodorize it, I can promise you a Grand  Opening. I will introduce you to Fatty  and he will take you out and show you  Plenty that John Stewart Mill nevev  mentioned in any of his Bocks."  The Graduate said he was keen to  study the Problems at close range, so  he took a letter of Introduction to Old  Dinkle.  The Boss of the Ward greeted him  warmly.

Many are the tales told of Li Hung  Chang, the dead Chinese statesman, by  George H.~ Daniels, general passenger  agent of the Grand Central railroad.  When Li visited America in the summer  of 189C Mr. Daniels had him in cliarge.  He was with the distinguished Chinaman for days, and heard many of his  embarassing questions asked ar.d answered.  "He could ask more questions in  less time than any other man I ever  knew," said Mr. Daniels. "His first question to every man'he met was always  '1-1 ow much money do you make?" He  would follow that with 'How much  money have you got? .  "It did not matter to Li who his new  acquaintance was, he always put some  embarassing questions to him. He was  not less sparing to young women. After  probing into a man's financial standing Li would usually ask him how old  he was. Then invariably ho would ask:  'Are you married?'  "If the person replied that he (or she)  was not married, or showed hesitation  about telling his age, Li appeared  amused. He had no hesitancy about  telling his own age and matrimonial experience."     . '  .Mr. Daniels told of Li's journey to  Niagara Falls over the Grand Central  Railroad and his determination to gather  information about this country. Secretaries were at his elbow constantly, and  every question the Chinese statesman  asked was jotted down, together with  the answer and th'e name of tho person  who was adressed.  '"'Li came to this country in his globe-  tiotting-tour-to-get-informationr���said-  Mr. Daniels, "and before he left he had  got what he came for. I remember his  interest in the coal which was seen along  the railroad as we were going to Niagara. He asked me where the coal was  mined and who were the owners of the  mines. Then he asked me how much  of it we consumed on the railroad, how  much it-cost us and what the owners of  the mines were worth.  "The Americans for whom Li had the  greatest admiration was general Grant.  When Grant was; in China lie met Li  and was entertained by him." On leaving China Grant gave Li a handsome  gold-headed cane bearing the inscription 'To Li Hung Chang from general  Grant.' While in America Li carried  this cane constantly. Ho was very  proud of it, and was delighted when  children crowded about him and read  tho inscription aloud to him.  "I was with Li at general Grant's  grave, This was, of course, before the  tomb was built. He showed much emotion. He put wreaths of flowers on the  grave and went through tho ceremony  such as he would have gone through  at thc grave of some great Chinaman.  "The only time I ever saw Li give way  to expressions of delight was at Niagara Falls. When he stod and watched  the falls he said, with more enthusiasm  than I believed him capable of showing, "There is no other sight like this  in the world!"  "Li told me that bis ambition was to  come to America again and again see the  falls and visit the tomb of Grant. I be-  lievo he always intended making a second visit. He got lot's of information  during his first visit, but ��� he wanted  more."  One of Mr. Daniels most valuable  possessions is a dozen large scrap books  in which were pasted clippings telling of  Li's actions from the time he left China  in 1896 until he reached home again  after circling the world. The clippings  lead off witli a remarkable career of  tho Chinaman, his birthplace and experiences in time of war and peace.  There are also scores of photographs  of Li taken at different periods in his  life. One photograph shows Li talking  with Bismark in Berlin.  Li occupied a suit of thirty-four rooms  in an expensive hotel in Berlin. Whilo  there he decided to have a bullet which  had been lodged in his check by an assassin removed.

The Barnum-Bailey circus, which  opened in Paris last week, has been  taken as an object lesson there. The  president of the board of health took 1  crowd of officials to the gallery of machines, the biggest hall ��� in the world,  whero the circus is established, and discoursed thus: ' s  "Gentlemen. I have brought you here  to show you how' the Americans surpass us when it comes to solving great  problems in organization and also in  sanitary arrangements. For years we  have given our horse and cattle shows  in this hall' with nothing but surface  drainage, insufficient precautions  against fire and no heating whatsoever.  Now see what the Americans hava  done."  The party then inspected the stable  arrangements, the employees' camp, the  property room and the vast kitchens for  man and beast. Every inch-of ground  was trenched and sewered, steam heat  was installed, water under high pressure was everywhere available to flood  any part which might be in danger  from fire- Then there were" private  switches bringing within the building  the menagerie and property trains. The  tracks were covered during the day, but  uncovered after midnight to bring in  train loads of hay, litter and foodstuffs.  Electric lights were everywhere. There  were private dynamos "in the offices employing sixty "department managers and  accountants, and a private telephone  exchange' connecting the multitudinous  departments with each other, with tha  city and with all Europe. While the  visitors were admiring American ingenuity prime minister Waldeck-Rcusscau  telephoned to his' brother-in-law in  London from the manager's desk. The  manager" next called up the Barnum-  Bailey representative in Berlin, settling  several business questions iri the twinkling of an "eye, while the prime minister  was holding a second receiver to his ear.  The French visitors expressed unbounded admimtion. The circus will remain  in Paris five months, running special  excursion.trains from the suburbs direct  into "the" building." Minister of commerce Millerand, on being told~*these  wonders, said"  "That is exactly why I am asking  congress for an appropriation to establish a French government school in the  United States. Our engineers, merchants and business men of all sorts  must Americanize their methods. We  send our artist laureats to Italy and  Greece, where France maintains expensive schools. We givo our musician  laureates a five years' pension in order  to enable them to live in Germany, Italy,  Vienna or wherever they.can best complete their studies. Now we must take  every year, say a hundred, gifted graduates of technical and commercial  schools, send them to the United States  and support them for from three to' five  years while they are working in various  parts of the country in mines, in factories, on railroads, in electrical factories or in big trading establishments.  One permanent director, assisted by  .three _or_ f our_specialists,^_wiould_adyise_  the students and watch their progress."  . Missing Indian Causes Excitement.  MARINETTE. Wisconsin, November  IS.���It is stated by superintendent John  Burke of the Peshtigo Lumber Company  that there is great excitement among  ���the Indians on the headwaters of the  Eagle river in the northern part of Marinette county over the disappearance of  one of the tribe, who has been missing  fer* a week Charles Keshena, one of  the best known Indians in that part of  tho country, appeared at one of the  Peshtigo company's camps Saturday and  said that his brother Indians were  greatly excited overcthe disappearance  of. one of the tribe and they claimed he  was killed by white hunters, who-shot,  him by mistake, takin? him for a deer.

Solos were sung  by Misf Jessie Lillie and Mr. Spooner  and a quartette from the choir also rendered a selection. The chief item on  the program was an address on the Pan-  American Exposition by principal Sullivan who is a pleasing and forcible  speaker. His description of some of the  wonders of the great show were graphically given, and the address was  highly entertaining as well as instructive.      *  One of the amusing Incidents of the  election - yesterday occuerred at the  polling place in the East Ward. A hack  was driven up, a tramway man gallantly assisted a Japanese fairly to alight  anil piloted her into the polling place.  At the same time "Jumbo," the Chinjse  wash-house proprietor ambled into the  room. Both were given ballots, and as  neither could read English, the returning officer had to explain the intricacies  of the ballot to them. The little girl  from Japan, with an appealing glance at  the adjutant-general of the power company's forces, said she wanted to vote  "for" the by-law, and her ballot was so  marked. "Jumbo" needed no advice  once he knew where the cross-mark  should be put so as not to spoil the  ballot. He marked his own ballot, and  it killed that made by the little girl  whose make-up was European but  whose eyes were of the Orient.  tion. The applicant is'now serving his  second term as ** president of the local  Liberal organization, and has rendered  yeoman's service to .tliej'party in years  past. He is one of tlie'( pioneers bf Nelson and is one of its most popular residents so that it is safe'to say that the  action of the executive in endorsing him  will be heartily approved' not only by  the members of tho'local Liberal Association but by the citizens as a whole.  The question relative to the appointment of another senator ior the province  of British Columbia was also discussed  and the executive, by resolution, decided/to request W, A. Galliher, M.P. for  Yale-Cariboo, to take tho matter up  with the cabinet with" a view to having  the additional senatorship assigned to  the district of which 'the Kootenays  form a part.  There was a somewhat lengthy discussion upon the   letter   from   senator  Templeman outlining the action taken  by the executive of the Liberal Association'for the province with respect to the  ..calling^of-a^convention^for-^the-purpose-  of introducing   federal ? party   lines   in  provincial   politics.     The    communication of senator Templeman contained a  copy of a resolution which had  been  moved Ky Dr. McKechnie, seconded by  Harry Senkler, and carried, that the secretary of the provincial organization-on  the advice of the president be authorized to call a convention, of the Liberal  party of the provinco immediately it is  intimated that a provincial general election is about to be held; that such convention   be held   at   Vancouver;   that  each provincial   riding, be   entitled to  three delegates; that the Liberal members in the federal and provincial parliaments be ex-o<Jlcio delegates and that  no proxies be allowod.    From the discussion upon the communication it was  evident, that the local organization did  not agree with the finding of the provincial executive in any particular and  it was decided tc oppose it for three  reasons:    (1) That tlio place named for  the holding of the convention was not  sufficiently central, and that Kamloops  was a more desirable point;   (2)  That  the local executive was strongly opposed  to the ruling that no proxies should be  permitted; and (3) that the date for the  convention,should not be delayed until  the eve of a general provincial election  but should be hold as soon as possible.  The meeting last evening -was well  attended.    Among those present were:  John Ayton Gibson (president), Georgo  C. Tunstall (secretary), John A. Turner,  alderman    John    Hamilton,    alderman  Thomas Madden, alderman Gillett, W.  A.  McLean, John   MeLeod,   Stuart   G.  Campbell, James McPhee, J. H. Matheson, and R. C. Campbell-Johnston.  A Kaslo Man's Plaint.  KEMP SPRINGS, November 17.���To  the Editor of The Tribune: I have  often read accounts of the meanest man,  but one lives in Kaslo who, in my estimation; discounts any heretofore found.  Should there be a reward for such a  character, I stand ready to give his  name.  During the past week another party  and myself had occasion to do somo  rush work on a mineral claim at the  head of Lyle creek about four miles  from Whitewater. The only cabin between Whitewater and the claim was  under the control of the mean man. I  applied to his agent for permission to  occupy the one; within one half mile of  our" work for a few days and was  promptly refused. ThinkiDg perhaps  there was some humanity in the makeup of - the mean man, I sent a letter to  him by a special messenger respectfully  asking permission to use the cabin,  stating that we were well supplied with  everything and;i"rom his effects did not  require as much as a match. I also stated in my letter that unless 'we could  stop there we would be compelled to  camp out. in the snow.  The cabin is large enough und is  equipped with bunks for eight men.  Only two employees of the mean mau  were or will for months probably be occupying - it. They, although working  men, were gentlemen and would have  gladly shared their shelter with us, but  the mean man wired me refusing permission. - Finally we took possesion  of another cabin about two miles distant, the dcors of-which did not even  have a latch, much less- a lock. This  cabin had not been used by- any employee of the mean man for Ave years,  yet his o.gent curtly demanded who gave  us permission to occupy it and stated  he had positive orders to allow no one  its use.      ' ���  Now, Mr. Editor, I have teen in the  mountains of the far west for 28 years  and have never before ran across such  contemptible meanness. I have heard  of a man so mean he would uso a wart  on his neck because he was too mean  to buy a collar button.. Also of a man  so. mean he would swipe pickings from  a lame chicken and cross hades on a  rotten rail to do it. Of a man too mean  to pay the printer, etc., but the mean  man of Kaslo is surely entitled to the  bakery, and if there is a mean man's  gallery in conjunction with a rouguss'  gallery, I will have a snap shot taken  of the Kaslo mean man and have it  placed on exhibition.  How would; the mean man feel were  he to meet with an accident, say have  his leg broken, in front of my domicile  on a cold winter's day and I should refuse him shelter until help arrived? He  would say I was meau, would he not?  Yet .such is a possible parallel to the  way he served me.  I am writing this on this cloudy Sun-  can representative, Theodore Greener,  whose position is that of commercial  agent for the United States. Mr. Greener informed him that besides America,  France, Germany, Holland and Japan  were commercially represented. Americans and Genuans, he went on to say,  had most of .the trade. 'No man,' writes  the, correspondent, 'can come through  Siberia to such a place as Vladivostock and give thought to what Russia  has done in a generation without being amazed. England may criticize Russianmanners and growl at Russian diplomacy and wonder how people can  live under an autocratic government,  but Russia has laid hold of the east.'"  Cabinet Meetings Are Frequent. .-  NEW YORK, November 1!).���Rumor3  that parliament will meet in the middle of January serye. to explain the  frequency of cabinet rreetirgs,' says  the Tribune's London: representative.  There will be another today (Tuesday),  but the program of the session contains  little beyond drastic proposals amending the rules of the commons. Well-  founded rumors of a sharp divergence  of opinion between sir .Michael Hicks  Beach and his colleagues' representing  his financial' policy offer an adequate  explanation of the mystery. Lord Londonderry's' hollow truce has not been  much availed of, but may be patched  up again if sir -Michael proves more  flexible than he was a fortnight ago  respecting the''ways and means~of providing for tho contingency of the war.

CHICAGO, November 19.���A dense  fog was responsible for numerous accidents and collisions here today. In a  collision between two Metropolitan  trains one person was killed and twelve  injured. The fog was one of the mosit  dense that Chicago has experienced for  .years. People standing on, the sidewalks coald scarcely see passing vehicles, and street cars kept their gongs  clanging constantly.  .  Later in the day news of anpther fatal  collision on the Metropolitan became  public. One trai a was overtaken by another. Otto Leinhart, the conductor of  the first train, remained on the rear  platform frantically waving a signal  lantern, while the passengers who had  been standing with him fled irside. His  efforts were in vain. He was crushed and  died in the hospital* several hours later.  Tn all there were nine collisions on elevated  structures  during the fog.
