COLON, Colombia, November 20.—
The liberals made an unexpected attack
on Colon at 6 o'clock last night. The
government was not prepared and thcrs
was little resistance. There was some
fighting in fiont of the curatel and in
certain streets for an hour and a half.
The liberals gained possession of all tho
public offices and the town of Colon.
The perfect guarda is a prisoner. Over
twelve men were killed and about thirty
men were wounded. The United States
gunboat Machias,. now lure, took no
part in tho proceedings. 'There has been
no telegraphic communication with Panama since last evening and it is surmised here that Panama is now being
NEW YORK, November 20.—Artudo
do Brigard, consul general of Colombia,
today received private dispatches informing him that the liberals had sur-
piised and captured tlie city of Colon
last "night. His telegrams placed the
loss at 12 killed and 30 wounded." Mr.
Brigard said the taking of the town did
not amount to much, as it was not a
- fortified place and that general Carlos
Aiban, governor of the depaitment of
Fanama, is new in the city of Panama
with 1100 trained troops. He says that
when general Alban returned to Colon
the liberals would.run away. ■
' WASHINGTON," November. 20.--The
state depaitment has received official
. confirmation of the capture of Colon by
the liberals. Transit was interrupted
for a period, but is now restored. Captain Perry of the Iowa, the senior naval
officer at Panama, has been instructed
to land marines if necessary to maintain transit across thc isthmus.' A dispatch has been received at the navy department from commander McCrea saying that 100 blue, jackets have- been
landed from'the Machias at Colon and
have taken charge of the" railway station. This was done not because of any
further disturbances but as- u matter oi
piecaution ' -   -
NEW YORK, November 20—Further
advices state that on receipt of the news
that general Alban, the military commander of the isthmus, had started to
attack-the liberals   at   Chorrora,   near
Panama,  the  latter  detached  1G0  man
under general Patino to attack Colon.
This force embarked on board a train
' Lound   from   Panama   to   Colon.    This
force embarked on board a train bound
from Panama to Colon yesterday evening at Las Cascades station, previously
cutting  off   telegraphic   communication
aciOFfc the isthmus.   Or arriving at thc
outskirts of Colon, at whicli mc government usually maintained n small guard,
the liboials left the train and in the ini-
wards Patino was killed.   The command
of the liberals then devolved on colonel
Frodcrico Barrotra and they continued
their march on Colon, arriving there a
few minutes after the train, thus surprising the whole town.    The government troops at Colon were outnumbered
by tho liberals     Fighting immediately
began at the curatel (barracks), which
vas soon taken.   A judge of the criminal court v as killed and senor Muskins,
the   disti ict   representative of thc department of the interior, was mortally
wounded.   Fighting subsequently occurred at the town hall,   which   was   also
taken by tho liberals.   Among the prisoners captured   there   by   the   liberals
wore tbo perfect guardia and the commandant, of police.    Senor Paredes, the
mayor, managed to reach  the gunboat
General Pinzin, which sailed last night
for   a. destination   unknown,   probably
Tlit! whole affair ..was over in less than
three hours. Communication with Pan-
. nma was restored today. This reveals
that no fighting has occurred there, that
everything is quiet and the country is
still in the hands of the government.
The-issue now entirely depends on the
result of the fighting wliich is doubtless
now occurring at Chorrera., news of
which is anxiously awaited here. The
liberals are now busy raising reinforcements locally. They are reported to
have several hundred men at railroad
stations between heie and Panama. The
"United States - gunboat Machias landed
_i detachment of marines here this
morning. They aro now guarding the
railroad station and other property of
the road.
COLON. November 20.—A conference
was held this morning between commander McCi'ae of tho Machias, United States
consul Malmor. colonel Shaler, superintendent of the Panama railroad, and
colonel D. Barrera. the commander of
the liberals The latter was informed
why the marines had been landed from
the Machias. Barrera had promised to
guard the city with his troops. Today or
tomorrow trains will be crossing the
isthmus as usual and there has been
no serious obstruction of traffic so far.
The news of the capture of Coio*i
which reached Panama when communication with that city was restored this
morning was a great surprise to the inhabitants of the city on the other sid<j
pf the isthmus.
A Sky Scraper for London.
LONDON, November 20.—The action
of an Anglo-American syndicate in applying to tho London county council
for a 999 year?' lease of a site on the
north side of the Strand for the erection of an office building on American
lines to cost £200,000 has caujred much
comment &nd interest and is discussed
from various poiuts of view. Many people share William Waldorf Astor's
views expressed in today's issue of the
1'all Mall Gazette throwing cold water
on tho proposed "addition to that conglomeration of architectural chaos
v.hich is modern. London." The Pail
Mall Gazette fears the mammoth building will deform the new thoroughfare.
The majority of the business community, however, share the views of the
London Times, which says: "We are
far too slow in meeting the wants of
the enormous population and are far
too much given to - muddling along
with the immediate extensions of
methods e&sentially antiquated."
Suspected Vessel Still Detained,
LONDON, November 20.—The steamer which the government detained yesterday at Victoria docks is named the
Baniigh. She had been used to carry
passengers between Lor don and Aberdeen and was sold three weeks ago ostensibly for use in the West Indian
ii uit trade. It was -suggested at first
that she was laden wtih contraband of
war destined for th.i Boers, but it is
i.ow vaguely suggested that any contraband on board of her was intended
for Colombia. Customs officers are still
on board the Banrigh.
Isthmus Transit Must Be .Maintained.
WASHINGTON, November 20.—The
confirmation of the reported capture of
Colon by the Colombia liberals caused
a decided commotion in the state and
navy departments today. There was a
long conference between the secretary
of the navy and admiral Crowninshield
and between the admiral and the acting secretary of state,' Dr. Hill. Later
the latter two Avent over .to the White
House and saw president Roosevelt.
This was the first time since 1885, when
admiral Jouctt opened up transit across
the isthmus of Panama, that communication had actually stopped in such
fashion as to seem to inquire the interference of ' the United States navil
forces. 'The first news of the trouble
came from the United States consul at
Panama. He telegraphed the state department that a considerable number
of liberals had taken possession of the
railway (he did not indicate where),
and arriving at a certain point had
cut the telegraph wires and taken up a
rail, ' thus breaking communication.
Later there came a second message from
consul-general Cudger announcing that
Colon had been taken. This was coi-
firmed more explicitly by United States
consul Malmoros, stationed at Colon.
The latter official said that Colon had
been taken' by the rebels last night.
While all business is suspended transit
is. not interrupted and American life
and property are safe and not likely to
be in danger.
Taken altogether these dispatches
were regarded by the officials here as
indicating a lack of purpose on the part
of-the-li berals -to-interf ere**-with-transit
across the isthmus. Still as the result of
the consultation today secretary Hill
cabled consul-general Cudger a direction to notify all parties who are engaged in molesting cr interfering with
free transit across the isthmus that
such interference must cease.
He was also directed to consult freely with captain Perry, commander ofthe
United States battleship Iowa, now lying at Panama. Captain Perry was
cabled by tho secretary tonight to land
marines if necessary for fre transit across the isthmus in accordance
with'the treaty rights and obligations
of the United States. At the st.me time
captain Perry was enjoined to avoid
bloodshed if possible. Meanwhile news
came that commander McCrea of the
Machias. which is now lying at Colon,
had anticipated this instruction from
the navy department by landing a foroe
of blue jackets at Colon and occupying
the railway station. The understandi lg
at the navy department was that the
landing party consisted of about 100
sailors who are employed in lieu of
marines, of whom the Machias has an
insufficient force,

this had been clouely pursued by a large
posse with bloodhounds and realizing
that his capture was ccrlain the fugitive voluntarily gave hinifelf up and
asked for protection. He was turned
over to the posse and started for Oxford, but it is understood at a late hour
tonight th-it he v/ill not be brought to

fearing mob violence. When the news
of the surrender reached Oxford the

Abolition of Free Passes.
PHILADELPHIA, November 20.—Under the new ruling of tho Trunk Lino
Association adopted by the presidents
of the railway companies belonging to
it, which is to take effect on January
1st, all exchange passes between the
reads will cease. While the action was
taken a few days ago, its strict application is only just beginning to be understood. The resolution does away with
passes of all kinds whatsoever now issued complimentary by ono road to
another, even including the presidents'
annuals. Hereafter the most important
official will have to pay his fare in
cash precisely as any ordinary passenger when he gets beyond his own company's lines. Said a railroad official yesterday: "When Mr. Cassatt wants to
go in his private car ,over the Reading, the Lehigh Valley or - any other
system in the Trunk Line Association
he will be obliged, under the resolution
he helped pass, to pay eighteen fares,
just the same a***-- a private individual chartering a Pullman sleeper.
The new order will undoubtedly shorten the vacation trips of railroad clerks
and employees who have heretofore
traveled on trip passes. They will be
obliged to pay their fares or confine
their excursions to their own compan-"
ies' lines." '
The Trunk Line Association comprises the roads east of Buffalo and
Fittsburg, including the Pennsylvania,'
Reading,    Erie.    Lackawanna,   Lehigh
Valley and Now York Central. The west
tr:; companies declined to abolish the
exchange pas's system, and are in no
way affected by the action of eastern
railway presidents.
Seattle's Lady Smugglers
SEATTLE, November 20.—Prominent:
Seattle women, wives and daughters of

from'government officials. A large quantity of expensive silks and dress goods
were smuggled into this citj from Victoria during thi past winter.

SEATTLE, November 20.—Since last
Thursday night T. D. Rush had bee.i
slowly boring his way into the Northern Pacific ticket officf- in this city.
About 6:30 Wednesday night ticket seller Kelsey heard the work going on,
but at first thought it was rats. His
suspicions were aroured, bowe\er, aud
he notified thc police department that
some ono was trying to bore his way
into tbe ticket office through the floor
in the vicinity of" the safe. The police
fet a watch and during Friday and Saturday nights the work went steadily
en. Monday morning the police made an
investigation. A ticket case standing
close to the safe was removed and two
large holes were uncovered. The would-
be burglar was evidently using an inch
bit in his auger, and there was already
fifteen holes in the floor. These holes
were within two inches of the right side
of the safe. Just under the right edge
of the big money box was r. trapdoor
about the same dimensions ar; the aperture under the coupon case This trapdoor was fasteaed by hinges and a.bolt.
Final touches on the job were completed
Sunday night. Rusn was*at'.work but a
short time. He probably put a bolt on
the trapdoor in ordy;- to cut off pursuit in oase he should be discovered
while at work in the office
Last night two policeman and private detective Hunt ambushed the
cracksman. Ruah opened the trapdoor
and started work upon the bottom cf
the safe at*about 1 o'clock. The officers
in some way alarmed him and he dodged
through the hole, closed the- trap and
stopped to bolt it. Detective Hunt fired
two shots. through the floor, one of
which broke Rush's arm and the other
oenetrated the base of his brain. He
fell from the platform on v«hich he was
standing to the ground, and was shortly afterward removed from under the
building in a dying coidition. Hs
breathed his last at the hospital at 5
o'clock this morning. Ho. was identified by a bank book foi nd in his shoe.
It is not known whether he had a confederate.
Now that winter, has locked up the
new  placer mining district discovered
during the past summer near the headwaters of the Horsefly river in romantic old Cariboo, much is being written
regarding it in the press of the province. Reports differ very much as to
the richness and extent of the new dig^
gings, but there can be but little doubt
that the discoverers of the new district
have stumbled upon what may be regarded as virtually virgin ground.  L.
S. Moulton Barrett of Greenwood, who"
is at present in the city, was in the new
district about the  time the new  discovery was made. He went in to look
at some ground which had been staked
some time before with a view to purchase,  and  was so  satisfied with  the
tests made upon it that he completed
the deal for it. In "speaKlng of the new
find  to  a  Tribune, representative last
evening Mr. Barrett said the new district appeared to be about eight miles
in extent. It was along one of the forks
of the Horsefly and was shallow diggings. After the discovery there was not
very much time for work,,but highly satisfactory   results - were   reported   from
all who secured ground. One of the locators fashioned a rude sluice box from:
a hollow log and inside of an hour he
cleaned up ?25 worth of gold. That the
district will come to the front next season is now assured, as capital has already been interested. Among the first
discoverers were a couple of men interested   in   the   Miocene  hydraulic  property  which is  operating' at Harper's
camp, as well as others who were in
the  employ   of   Mr.   Barrett.   Through
them the shareholders in the Miocene
property have been-interested.
This company's" operations 'are- being
directed by senator Campbell of California, and it is generally understood
that the Alaska Salmon Canning Company is behind it, so that it is sufficiently strong financially to carry out any
ventures which promise good returns.
Just at present one of the chief obstacles to the working of the district
has been its inaccessibility, it having
cost Mr. Barrett just seven cents per
pound for packing in such supplies as
ho required, the district being some 65
miles, from the nearest point reached by
the stage line, which is Harper's camp.
The interesting of the Miocene company in the district will have the result of cutting this charge down materially, as the company has already made
arrangements for the placing of a small
steamer on Horsefly lake, which will
overcome sixteen miles of the distance
from Harper's camp, and will render
stores at a reasonable distance.
Speaking generally of the district Mr.
Barrett said that it was necessary on
the occasion of his first trip in to cut a
rough trail for the entire 65 miles. It
is a district of big timber, with absolutely no feed for horses, so that everything that went in had to be packed on
the men's backs. He is now making arrangements for the installation of hydraulic machinery and an electric light
plant, so that operations can be carried on day and night,, as tho season is
very short. The area that he has secured is four miles in extent and the
tests have shown that it is a deep diggings. There are about thirty feet of
clay to go through, and under this
there is a body of twelve feet of gravel
in which the values are found. The gold
is all coarse, which is taken to indicate
that it has not traveled tar. There aro
evidences that the- ground has been
worked in a primitive fashion, the surface gold having been washed out, but
the bed of clay was not penetrated.
Aside, however, from its possibilities
as a hydraulic prposition Mr. Barrett is
confident that systematic prospecting
will uncover ledges which will pay to
work. Conditions heretofore would not
permit of such work being done, but
there are evidences of the presence of
ledges and with cheaper supplies it will
be possible to give some attention to
the search for them.
In the vicinity of Harper's camp Mr.
Barrett says there are three large hydraulic properties operating which have
attained different stages of development.
On the Miocene a shaft has been sunk
to a depth of 500 feet and a drift run
from the bottom of it for an even greater distance, but the machinery on the
property has proven Inadequate to take
care of the water and additional plant
is to be installed next summer. The
other properties operating in the section are the Horsefly and the Ward
claims, on both of which the indications for favorable returns are believed to be excellent, although their
worth has not yet been demonstrated
to shareholders in the way of dividends.
who is touring the United States and
Canada in the   interests   of   the   Irish
cause, arrived in this city tliis morning.
In an interview he said Ireland had as
many grievances as Canada did in her
earlier history, and, whilo   he   favored
physical force of arms   to   accomplish
the   freedom   Canada   enjoys,   he  3aid
stringency of funds prevented the object
being accomplished in that way.   They
must  consequently take   constitutional
mear_s.    They would be satisfied with
the freedom Canada enjoys, but would
prefer absolute independence.    In answer to a question regarding the Boer
war, ho said while here heQwould have
little to say in that connection, his only
mission being to elicit sympathy for the
Irish   cause.     Regarding  Hon.  Joseph
Chamberlain's   threat   to   reduce   Irish
representation in the house of commons
on   account   of   Irish  obstruction,  Mr.
Redmond said the Nationalists-did not
fear the colonial secretary, as he would
be too busy with the Boer war to introduce legislation of this sort.   He denied,
however, that the Irish obstructed legislation.   Ho was of thc opinion that the
Salisbury government would fall inside
of six months owing to the complications resting on the party.   He said also
that lord Salisbury would retire aftor
the coronation.
MONTREAL, November 20.—Messrs.
Redmond, O'Donnell and McHugh, the
Irish delegates, addressed an audience
of 1500 Irishmen in the Windsor Hall
this evening. The meeting was mo-st
enthusiastic, Mr. O'Dcnnell's speech in
Gaelic arousing great applause. The
speeches followed the general trend of
those already delivered by the delegates, Mr. Redmond ^adding that the
Irish intended remaining disloyal and
rebellious until England wanted peace
and had paid the same price it had paid
in Canada—independent, government.
Resolutions were adopted congratulating Ireland on its reunited party and
pledging the support of Montreal Irishmen in the fight for home rule.
" Important Astronomical Discovery-
CHICAGO,   November   20.—Professor
Ritchey  of Yerkes Observatory is reported to have made a discovery in astronomy which will make him and the
^observatory world famous. The disco v-
ery,' in brief, is the proof of what is
known as the nebular theory and pro--
fessor Ritchey appears to have reduced,
to . certainty what • has heretofore
been merely a brilliant hypothesis. It
-is stated that he has dene this by obtaining photographic evidence of evolution among the planetary bodies. The
result of his observations, it is asserted, not-only prove the truth of the
celebrated nebular theory- of creation
announced'by the-famous Frenchman,
Laplace, and of the widely entertained
belief that the solar systems and even'
star clusters have been formed by millions of years of slow evolution from
great bodies of gaseous matter floati.ig
in the mobservable abysses of space,
but also prove that a rebula with a
star for a nueclus changes its shape and
the quantity of light it emits, and that
these changes are so, rapid as to be

returns frcm crops in tho territories
show a considerably higher average
than do those from Manitoba, but this
is only in keeping with conditions nt
they have existed throughout the entire growing season.
We do not think the repoi ts have anything of thc "boom" collected about
them, in fact in some,.cases_ it may be
that they are rather below than above
the actual returns. The geneial tendency of the reports seems to indicate
a loss in wheat on account of the wetness of the fall, although some correspondents do not report much detriment
from this cause. It is gratifying to ob-
. serve the general immunity from damage by frosts, and in contrast to the sea
son of 1900 there seems to have been almost an ertire rreedom from loss by
winds aud hail. Taken altogether the
whole trend of the report give testimony to a satisfactory crop and one
the reflection of which will furnish good
sauce for our thanksgiving dinner.

Manitoba and the Territories,
WINNIPEG,      November     20. — The
Northwc-st   Farmer,   Western   Canada's
farm journal, in its issue of today publishes an exhaustive review of western
crop yields for thc past year gathered
from   correspondents  of  the  paper   in
Manitoba and the territories, who were
asked   to   furnish   reliable  information
as to the returns from this year's crop
and    the   conditions   during   the   past
season,  as  well   as   to   ascertain   the
amount of land in  readiness for next
year's  work.    Introducing  the  itports
tho Northwest Farmer says:    Striking
an average of the yields reported, we
obtain the following results. Manitoba—
Wheat 23.76 bushels to the acre, oats
44.44, barley 35.63, flax 13.60. Assinaboi—
Wheat 29.31 bushels, oats 56.69, barley
39.63,   flax   17.50.   Alberta—Wheat  30.29
bushels, oats 54.13,  barley .37.17.    Saskatchewan—Wheat  28.50   bushels,   oats
50.55, barley 38.33.   We think these averages  pretty   accurately   represent   the
actual crop returns for the divisions of
the country which they represent.    No
estimated yield for the crops in the territories has ever been before prepared
during the growing season by the territorial bureau of agriculture, but it is
interesting to compare thc figures obtained   from   our   correspondents   with
the August crop bulletin issued hy the
department of agriculture fer Manitoba.
That report gave estimates mads from
the standing crops as follows:    Wheat
24.28 bushels, oats 43.78 bushels, barley
33.08 bushels.   With the more actual information which threshing results havo
enabled  our  correspondents  to  gather
it will be seen that the average for tbe
wheat crop has been slightly lowered,
while  these  of  oats   and   barley havj
been raised.   It will be noticed that the
best yields as a rule arc reported from
the parts of Manitoba lying to the north,
a fact which may be moro or less due
to   the   much   greater    percentage   of
newer lands being brought into cultivation in these districts and which also
suggests that  perhaps   tho   productiveness of the land in what wo have all
along called our best wheat growing sections may be becoming impaired by too
close and too continuous cropping.   The

WINDSOR, Ontario, November 20.—
John Hager, a Sandwich South farmer,
was nearly disembowled by a ferocious

a club.
MONTREAL, November 20.—Ohara
Bayiies, a well known notary public,
was today acquitted in the courts of
king's bench on a charge of conspiracy.
The charge was based on cashing a
51500 check which had been stolen from
:i farmer. Tbe men who stele it aro
now in the pc nftentiary. Baynes had it
cashed for thera at the bank. Tho le-
fense wav. that he was drunk at tho
time and did not know what, he was doing. As he has since paid up the amount
fo the bunk his excuse was accepted by
the jury. Baynes' story is generally believed.
TORONTO, Nov., 20—Sir Charles
Tupper arrived here today. Ho will attend a meeting of the- Crown Life Insurance Company, of which he is president. Interviewed he said he believed
Canada ought tp wait until approached
by the Americans ontrcde matters.
Concerning tho sending of another contingent he said: "1 am eoiry there is
not a Canadian contingent standing
alongside of the Australians and New
Zeaianders to fight for the empire to
the end of the war. I hope the government will not only allow a contingent
to be raised, but will also organize and
equip it.
MONTREAL; November 20. —The
Star's London cable says: Dissap-
pointment is felt at lord Strathcona's
reported statement made at Queenstown yesterday that the fast Atlantic
line negotiations are yet in their infancy. Recent Canadian cablegrams give
another impression. Lord Strathcona
raid that Louisburg or Sydney would be
the besL available Canadian terminal.
He supposed one of them would be selected. Asked regarding the English terminal, the high commissioner said that
probably Liverpool via Queenstown
would be the route decided upon, but
he thought that would be left to the op-
lion of the contractor.

crash.  The  boiler of the  west bound
train is said to have exploded immedi- Z
ately after tbe crash, scalding to death' "
those of the engine crews who had not
been killed outright. A scene of awful,
confusion followed the crash". The massive engines piled up' in an indescribable mass of twisted and broken steel,
while  the  scal3in<?  steam   hung  in. a
dorse suffocating cloud ovpr the debris
from which tho agonizing cries ,of the"
injured and dyiig engine men could be
heard. The heavy composite and Pull-"-
man care jammed the baggage and dining cars upon the heated pile of debris,
carrying death to the diring car crews

meager  details  of  thj  scene  gathered
from the passengers it is learned that
the sleeping cars, with one or two exceptions, suffered light damage and as
comparative immunity from injury.
At Santa Fe headquarters at Loa
Angeles it was stated that the blame-
had not teen definitely fixed, but from
all appearances it rests with the crew
of the westbound train. The west

none wore injured. J

John Houston, Manager. Nelson, B. C.  E. V. Bodwell has announced his intention to enter .politics," not, that he  has not been a factor in politics for several years. But from this time on he  will devote attention to politics from  the standpoint of a politician seeking  office.' Four years ago Mr. Bodwell was  urged by his friends to make the declaration that he has now, made; but he  declined then for the reason that he  could not afford to quit his business in  order to look after the business interests of the people. Mr. Bodwell is a  Liberal in national politics, and as a  lawyer stands at the, head, of the bar  ir this province. He. has long been the  legal representative of the railway corporations that are antagonistic to the  Canadian Pacific, and he-has led the  forces that are now arrayed against  that company in .Victoria. He, announces  that he is no longer counsel for, any  laihvay corpci ation, and that if elected  to represent the city .of Victoria in the'  legislature and is afterwards 'in a "posi-  ���r r i ^  tion ,to lead a government that his  policy will be "a broad and "comprehensive one. It is not likely that even Mr.  Bodwell, able a man as he is, can all at,  once forget that he has been' opposed  to ceitain corporate inlerests and favorable to others; that would be too  much to expect. If he is backed up in  his aspirations for the" leadership of the'  Liberal party hy a united party, E V-  Bodwell will be a hard man to down,  and the leader of thc party who downs  him will needs be not only a man of,  ability, but a man-who will lead a party  that has a policy, and a broad and progressive one at that  (!> SPECIAL SALE FOR THIS WEEK ONLY OF LADIES' AND  CHILDREN'S FURS. ^  H\ ������*.-��� fc\  We will offer our complete stock of Furs at prices never before equalled in this city. ***  Ladies' Fur Capes, Collars, Muffs, Boas, Fur Lined Capes, Fur Ruffs, Persian Lamb Jackets,  Grey Lamb Jackets, Electric Seal and Mink Coats.

'-*' .,,:   '    .  In the United States, the Chinese Exclusion Act, which  has been  ih  force  for nearly twenty years, expires hy limitation on .May nth of next year.    An  impression is gaining ground that the  fcig industrial trusts and great railway  corporations arc opposed to a re-enactment of tho law, in order that they may  be allowed to bring in Chinese to replace the uj&hlUed white labor that they  now employ.    Tho foices that are arrayed for the re enactment of the law  claim that the act has seived to keep  down  the number   of   Chinese   immigrants, and that if not renewed they will  flock   into  the   country   by   thousands.  It is also claimed that if the law is not  le-enacted nothing but disaster can result to   Califorr.ia   and   other   Pacific  Coast   states.     Thc   Eastern   presis   is  d:scussiug the question, and the working men and business men throughout  the great industrial states of Pennsylvania,   Ohio,  New  York,  Illinois,  Indiana, Massachusetts, and Michigan aro  actively arousing interest on the question.  The question  is also  considered  a live issue in Canada, and more particularly   in   British   Columbia,   vrhem  there arc a large number of Chinese and.  Japanese,  the latter brought in under  contract to force Indian and white fishermen to wcrk for wages much lower  than they had previously been getting.  No party shoud succeed in British Columbia that is not in favor of the restriction of both Chinese and Japanese  immigration.

' ���  This is 'an admission of almost every  objection made by American ��� working-  men to   'Chinese   immigration.     It   is  more; it is a statement bf some of the  chief  reasous   for  the  anxiety  of  the  allied   trusts   to   prevent  re-enactment  of the Greary law, which expires next  May.

Among the cheerful phenomena of thc-  day, the British officer has attained a  conspicuous place. While gloom "oppresses the patient British taxpayer as  he computes the cost of conquest, the  gallant "ov'fcer man" at the front is not  disturbed. He is a prisoner of hope, condemned to fight inglorious battles for  his country seven thousand miles from  the comforts of home, and he does that  I? with a proper ^enthusiasm; but he also-  snatches recreation in tho intervals of  warfare, and his enthusiasm in this  pursuit is even greater.  It must be admitted that in the Britisher tho sportsman's instinct is'highly  developed, and with excellent effect upou his character as a man and a soldier. But when Jie persists in playing  golf in the enemy's country ho becomes  more than Type: he is a Text. And un-  approciative ciV.'ilans preach upon him.  as thus:  "Tho fact of the case is that most  of our officers are fonder of golf and  cricket than duty. Only last week two  Boers went'to one of our outposts near  hero, right between two blockhouses,  and left their worn-out horses and took  cur fresh ones without any of the.picket, knowing about it And again, some  officers wore playing golf, and they were  told the enemy wero around. They finished thoir game, and then gave orders  to fall in; but meanwhile brother Boer  had exchanged their, horses and all got  away, our men not being able to follow  on the Boer horses. -This is the kind of  thing that is keeping th<- war on."���  h From a letter from South Africa to the  St. James Gazette.  "Our garrison towns represent a state  of things utterly opposed to the idea of  a vigorous prosecution of the war. Numerous officers in Dossession of staff billets  are snugly ensconcing themselves in  comfortable bungalos, obtaining 'lodging' instead of 'field' allowance, and  drawing ration allowance. In fact, the  liberal allowances to officers > in South  Africa seems to counterbalance then-  desire for the "end of the war.  "Sport is all very well in its way, but  V.n active service the care of golf links  and tennis courts should not exercise  officer's" ability and attention, Avhile the.,  thousands of polo and racing ponies kept  by officers throughout South Africa (fed  on government rations) might profitably  he used to argument the parsimonious  supply of remounts to tho mobile columns."���From a letter from South Africa to the London Spectator.  Here is hilarious contrast���the London populace parading through the  , streets from time to time, roaring "Rule  Britannia; Britons never, never, never  shall be slaves!" and tho officers at the  front pursuing golf balls over the windswept veldt while inconsiderate Boers  round up their horses.    ���  An orderly rides furiously acrors the  plain to his commanding officer, who in  leading an attack on the north hole;  fl ings himself from- his   horse, and  breathlessly reports that the Boers are  raiding the camp, whereupon captain  the honorable Algernon Pitzmaurice;  leaning on his niblick, regards him cold-  Jv through his glass, and replies: .  * ''Very good, my man. My compliment  to the lieutenant, and say I expect to  hole out. in threo and will be with him  jn a half-hour. And tell him to keep  the Boer men off the links."  Awav goes the orderly in a cloud of  dust, and captain the honorable Algernon Fitzmaurice, poising his brassie,  prepares to drive across tho watercourse' hazard. If any one thinks this  end picture is overdrawn he is respectfully referred   to   thc   letters   printed  above. ',.'.'  I had the pleasure of observing an instance of the British officers' ineradicable passion for sport. Pretoria was taken, it will lie remembered, after a  steady advance" from Bloemfontein���  with something like fifty engagements  in fifty-six days���and the iorces sat  down to rest. The Boers withdrew to  the northward and eastward, but remained a constant threat to the outposts  of the town.  Within a week the officers had arranged to hold a steeplechase, and the  men were sent to the fiat valley on the  west of.the town to lay out the course  Ditches were dug, walls erected and  water jumps built. , On the appointed  day field marshal lord Roberts, with his  glittering staff���the "House of Lords'-  ���rode out to the field, followed by nearly every officer in the entire force.  There wero about seventy-five entries  for the steeplechase, and as they swept  j>round.,lhe>i*fcree-Tiiile course, spreading  cut in the open and closing into thundering masses at the jumps, every  thought of war was forgotten in the  thrill of the sport. Quite a number of  the men became croppers���an officer of  the Bsngal Lancers broke his collar-  hone and several ribs���and altogether  ,'*' it was a very pleasant affair.  A dav or two later word was received  c that a whole battalion���of the Scots  I Greys, I think���had been rounded up and  raptured by tho Boers within fifteen  , miles of t.he town. This incident created  i' not tiuite so much general- interest as  the steeplechase.  Far  be it  from  mc  to  persume  to  oast  aspersions  upon  the British  officer.   He is a gentleman of the most engaging    personality ��� brave,    generous  joad willing to   light   while   there   is  THE CANADIAN  BANK OF COMMERCE  with wmen is amalgamated  THE BANK OF  BRITISH COLUMBIA.

The news that Uall Caine has been  elected a key by an overwhelming majority brings to mind a curious anomaly  existing iu the Isle of Man. This httl*  islpjid, which measures only thirty-five  miles by twelve, is a remarkable survival of feudal days in the very center  of tho British. Isles. Situated in the  middle of the Irish Channel, nearly equidistant from England, Ireland and Scotland, tho Isle of Man has a separate existence and is itself a little kingdom  whose ruler is the ruler of Great Britain. When tlie ordinary Englishman is  asked what this isle is famous for he will  invariably answer its cats, which have  no tails. As a matter of fact, there is  an indigenous breed of cats without  tails, and this unfortunate circumstance  has caused the little island to h? regarded in a humorous light which its  history and its traditions ill deserve.  The government of the island was, up  till 1S66, more or less of an oligarchy.  Thero aro three estates, ihe 'governor,  the council and the house of keys or  parliament, which together constitute  what is known as the court of tynwald.  The council consists of the bishop of  Sodor and Man, the attorney-general,  the receiver-general, the two deemsters  or chief inatices, made familiar to the  public by Hall Caine's writings; the  clerk ofthe rolls, wator bailiff, archdeacon, and two vicars general. There are  twenty-four keys, and up to 18G6 they  held office by a unique method of filling  up vacancies by the self-election of  others. In 1S6U, when the second reform agii ation was sweeping through  Great Britain, this was changed. Hitherto, on the death of a "key," r-vo nominations wero made, ot whom the governor selected one for the filling of the  vacant post. Henceforward the house  of keys consented to become representative, and thoy are now elected for the  period of seven years. Hall Caine's el-  ectio;: by a sweeping majority on a  more or less socialistic platform shows  that tho doctrines of reform hold wide  sway in the little island, and when a  popular novelist becomes a politician  outsiders may look for an interesting  denoument.  Not the least interesting feature of  the Isle of Man, is The fact that is has  its own birh'op, the bishop of Sodoi and  Man, who has a seat in the house -.f  lords, without the priviledge cf a vote  however. The establishment of this  bishopric is lost in the mists oi' antiquity. It is surposed to havp boen established" by Pope Gregory iv. in tne  ninth century. The name "Sodor" is  of forgotten derivation, though, it is  supposed to mark the period when the  Hebrides were in the possession of the  Norsemen and divided Nordor into Sodor, or north or south.  The Manx language, which is similar  to the Gaelic,, is used and the people  . till-pursue-tlieii-primitive-wayrtouched-  superficiallv by (he doctrines of modern time, but little changed from thc  days when tho Stanleys held sway lr.  their kingdom.  A Mexican Croesus.  In less than a year's time Pedro Alvarado has risen from a penniless peon  to a multi-millionaire. Quite naturally,  therefore, he is the sensation of Mexico.  Everybody in that vicinity remembers  the sombreroed laborer who not many  months ago-lived in a shack in the  mining town of Parral. And it is not  surprising that everybody's eyes should  open particularly wide when there  passes by Alvarado, the owner of a  mine of magical richness, the most  prosperous and the luckiest man in  Mexico, the lavish spender of a monthly income of ?200,000. Alvarado believes  that the significance of money lies in  its purchasing capacity. So his chief  concern at present is the spending of  his income. And this, although he has  had but a fpw months practice, he is  accomplishing royally. Certain of the  man's eccentricities have been related  by Thomas Welch, an, American mining man, who has just returned from  Mexico. The interest of every man,  woman and child in Parral, says Mr.  Welch, seems to be centered in Alvarado. Since last November his net profits  from his mine, which is named the  Falmillo, havo aggregated ?1,500,000,  and prior to that time he had taken out  about $500,000 worth of ore. He will  not put his money in bank but keeps  it at his home, where it is constantly  guarded by a large force of armed men.  He has from $200,000 to $300,000 on his  person when he goes out, and an armed  guard of eight men always accompanies  him. The members of this guard are  di'essed in fantastic Mexican costume,  and Alvarado is always attired in the  height of fashion. He pays a Mexican  tailor a high price to keep him clothed  properly.  A few days ago a traveling jeweler  nnd diamond peddler struck Parral with  his wares. He attracted the attention  of Alvarado, who with his armed  guard, happened to be passing and was  asked how much he would take for his  whole outfit. The peddler replied that  he would sell out for $15,000. Without  IMPERIAL BANK  OIE1    O^-JST-A-IDjA.  Capital (paid up)   ���   $2,600,000  Rest       -      -      -    $1,850,000  HEAD OFFICE.

The man  seemed as pleased as a boy with a new  toy over- the trade he had made. A  short time before this Alvarado purchased three pianos of the most costly  make. The instruments will go to ornament the palace which he is building for  his permanent home. This building will  be the finest' private residence in Mex-;  ico. No expense is being spared in its  construction. It is estimated that it  will cost not less than $500,000, and for  that distant part'of Mexico, where adobe  buildings are the rule, it will be considered wonderful On the pretext of furnishing it -he has purchased scores of  useless articles, and simply, buys them*  for the pleasure they can give him for  the moment.  With all his reckless expenditure of  his wealth he'is displaying a philanthropic spirit. He has not forgotten the  peons with whom only a short time  ago he was closely associated. He has  undertaken the construction of a large  charity hospital for the poor of Parral. This hospital will be equipped with  all modern appliances for such institutions. .  An Englishman's Opinion.  I met a very smart intelligence officer the other day, and he said the war  could not be finished for a year yet, as  it was-such a difficult war, the country  so large, and tho kopjes so impregnable,  etc. Indeed, if for kopje you write a  bare, easy hill, for kloof a bare glen, for  krantz an easy cliff, and get rid of all  the jargon of drifts and poorts (which  are fords and, ferries) and dongas and  sluits (which are simply ravines which  a child should <?ee), you will see that  the .men have been stagc&truck with  their words, which mean nothing. If  our men got rid of their wagons and  tcok to the hills like the Boers, tbey  would come across them easy enough.  An old Boer said to me once that, if two  men go after one another and one never  gets on a road and tho other never  Ieaves.it, they arc not, likely to'meet"  unless by chance in a fog'they knock  against each other. ,The only chance  of our finishing thc war in a reasonr-bla  time is for the press to insist on true  information from the front. Many of  the best officers I have seen are eager  for full information and a state of war,  instead of our nursing the Boer women'  and children and the Boers nursing our  prisoners, They all say if no mercy  were shown on either side the war  would soon end. We feed their wives,  and they feed and soothe all our men  who hand them over their guns and  horses, and    so   thc    war    drags   on.

The assault case in which Mike Botti  charged Frank Denunzzio with striking -him on the head with -a rock at  Bersley siding did not par out very well  when thc matter came up for trial before stipendiary magistrate Crease yesterday. 3otti's recollection of the entire  affair seemed to have faded out completely and he knew nothing beyond  the fact that he had been struck on f.he  head while he was working. He did not  Fee the accused strike nor did he know  of any one els-3 who saw the blow delivered. There was nothing left for the  Magistrate to do but to dismiss the  case and if there had been any wny of  doing it Botti would have been stru.-.k  for the costs of the prosecution, but as  the way did noc appear open he got off.

The proposed deal with the Bonnington Falls Power Company having been  rejected by the ratepayers of the city  it is now open to the members of the  city council to see what other arrangements can be made for the securing of  such additional power as the city may  require temporarily for the operation  of its "light plant. Mark B. Thomas,  manager of the Nelson Coke & Gas Company, says his company submitted an  offer to the city "council at its last  meeting, on Monday evening, of which  nothing seems to have beeu heard. This  offer, according to-Mr. Thomas, was  addressed . to mayor Fletcher, marked  important, and' delivered by messenger  before the council meeting on Monday evening, and as it appears in tho  company's letter book reads as follows:  NELSON, November 18th, 1901.  "To the mayor and aldermen of the  city of 'Nelson���Gentlemen: Having  just received a communicaition from  my directors at Toronto. I beg to submit the following: Our .company will  supply gas for. engine for 100 horse  power, as auxiliary to your electric  light plant,- for the .sum of $48 per  horse power per annum; or will install  a gas "engine,- provided we get a contract for five'ysars, at tho above rate.  I have the.honor to.be yours, respectfully, '. ..MARK B. THOMAS,  Manager/Nelson'Coke & Gas Company.  In explanation of tbis offer Mr.  Thomas explained' that while the rate  quoted per horse power was ?3 higher  per annum s tfian that' quoted by the  West Kootenay Power & Light Company, the city had the very great advantage. - under it of paying for' only  such power.-^s it consumed. The gas  company would be in a position to supply the 100 horse,.power whenever it  was required, but if at any time the re-  qvirements\bf, tlio' city dropped to" 50  horse power 4t "would not be paying for  more than' jt uspd. With respect to the  installation, qf the engine necessary for  the_utilizing^bf.gas as a motive power  Mr. Thomas explained that it would  not pay the company to install an engine for a shorter period than the five  years as stated, in "view of the remarkably low price at which the gas -was  quoted-in tbe offer, which was, upon the  basis of 60 .' cents per thousand fe?t;  .but if the engine was installed by the  city at its o'w i expense the gas company was prepared to supply gas for  any period at the rate stated. The -use  of gas in connection with electric lighting is no new'thing, as Mr. Thomas explained that. many of the plants in  Germany and Great Britain are driven  by gas engines.  Should the city council at' its next  meeting evince a desire to consider his  company's offer, Mr. Thomas says the  officers of the company would_.be' willing to make the trip -from Toronto to  -arrange-detaIU,r-but-so**vfar-there-hasi  been nothing to warrant their coming.  Didn't Stay Captured Long.   .  Tho police succeeded in gathering in  a man yesterday afternoon whom they  suspect of complicity in a number of  petty larcecies 'which have occurred recently in the" transfer of baggage from  the C. P. R. wharf to the company's  depot. The man. arrested was Dan  Bloom and he would have been brought  up in the police court this morning but  for the fact that he made his escape  from the city lockup last evening.  The case upou which the police were  working was the theft of a piece of baggago which took place on Monday night,  the llth instant. A list of the articles  contained in the valises stolen was obtained from the owner and through tho  sale of lhe same to one of the second  hand dealers by Bloom, he was connected with tho theft. In the hope that a  trace, might be had of some of the other  articles stolen the police played a wait-  iug game ?iicl they were rewarded yesterday afternoon by Bloom putting in  an appearance with four suits of new  clothes which he also disposed of. He  was being shadowed and as soon as he  had-disposed of the clothes he was  placed under arrest and lodged in the.  city lockup. Tbis occurred . about 4  o'clock and the police.spent the rest of  th e after r. oor. in perfectio g their case  against iho piisoner.  Shortly after 8 o'clock In the evening  chief Jarvis and one of the special, officers made a visit to the lockup to see  how their' prisoner was getting along;  On calling into the cell Bloom made no  n.'&por.se and the officers began to fear  that he had made away with himself,  and he had. but not in the way in which  tbey feared. On opening tbe cell chief  Jarvis soon realised that Bloom had  made his escape. There was a bunk in  the cell in which Bloom had been locked. In some way the prisoner had removed the nuts which held the headpiece of the bunk. This furnished him  a lever with which he set to work upon  the bars across the cell window. Thess  were wrt-fched off and the prisoner  squeezed through the small opening and  ���made his'esenpe. ,  At the time when tha escape" was discovered Blcom could not have had much  more than an hour's dart hut it was  dark and too Jate tor the officers to do  NELSON, B.C.

" Richards and Riley had an  account with thc Bank of British North  America, opened on July 3rd, 1900.  Theso poisons were partners in the  Strand hotel and tho account was so  opened. The partners were both to  sign checks in their individual names  and not in the partnership name. Owing  to an. error in the bank account the  partners were allowed to overdraw  $199.97. ' This was' transferred from  Richards' private account in the same  bank. He sued for the amount and the  decision was against- ihe bank. The  bank" appealed. Judge Drake held that  Richards was not the causa of the error,  and although he may be responsible in  another action he is not therefore to be  deprived of his legal rights; therefore'  the plaintiff is entitled to the costs of  this appeal and the costs of the court  below.    - " --  Didn't Know It Was Loaded,  VANCOUVER, November 20.���[Special  to The Tribune.]���The four year old  daughter of Charles Berenston was accidentally shot this afternoon by a rifle  in the hands of the ten-year old son of  Charles Dibden.
