 F��c*iSSS��HB*ii��w������ii*��M*^^  A  &01\  m  ESTABLISHED  1892  MONDAY MORNING,  DECEMBER 23  1901  DAILY EDITION  'S  WOLSLEY HAS COMPLETED  HIS MEMOIRS.  GROWTH  OP  GERMANY'S INDUS-  TIAL TRUSTS CAUSES UN-  ,   EASINESS.  NEW YORK, December 22.���The London correspondent of the New York Tribune, I. N. Ford, in a special dispatch  published "today says: "The new Roman Catholic cathedral at Westminster  will be opened three days after the  king's coronation:' After careful -consultation with Mr. Bently, the architect,  cardinal Vaughan has decided that the  opening ceremony will take place on  Sunday,'June 29th, subject to the reservation that nothing unforseen intervenes to make a postponement necessary. Active preparations will consequently be- instituted to this end with  the new year. The opening ceremony  will be carried out on, a scale of the  greatest magnificence. The pope will  be specially represented at the function  by a high dignitary, and it is expected  that the principal sees in Europe and  America, in commuuioh���with Rome, will  also be represented. Lady Vavasour  has intimated her intention of enriching  the interior of the building with a costly  niosiac ot the Welsh saint Winifred., as  a contribution toward a scheme of decoration.  The British consul at Stuttgart, in his  annual report, on the trade, agriculture  and finances of "Wurtomburg makes some  interesting remarks on the increase  -wliich has taken place in Germany in  tho last few years in the number and  extent cf trusts. At present, he says,  there probably,- exist between one hundred and one hundred and thirty trusts  of various sizes and discriptions. Among  tbo most important may be mentioned  the coal, iron, chemical, paper, celluloid  and carbide trusts. The textile indus-,  tries do not seem to have been very successful in the formation of combinations. " Thc, duration of tho trusts is a  subject of extreme variation and speculation as to their stability is a thing of  considerable difficulty owing to tho  strict privacy in which international  affairs are conducted. The principal  object'aimed at, is to regulate buying  and selling by decreasing certain fixed  maximum .'and'' minimum prices. In  many cases districts arc apportioned for  selling purposes to various members of  the trusts and the amount of production .is. limited in order to prevent overproduction and any consequent fall in  prices. Rigid organization is absolutely  imperative and in some cases discipline  is maintained by the exaction of heavy  fines and sureties.  Pro-Bacons are not any more popular  here than pro-Boers, and when Sidney  Lee enters the lists against the disciples of the ciper, as he has' done by denouncing what he calls "the Baconian  ^bacillusiLin^aJctter^q^ the /Times, Englishmen feel con firmed^ that they=have=a=  champion on the side which they naturally prefer to think the right one.  That there are topographical peculiarities to the Shakespeare first folio Mr.  Lee admits, but after collecting some  twenty-five copies, and being moreover  thoroughly versed in Bacon's biliteral  cipher system, he ridicules the idea cf  there being any method or meaning in  these peculiarities. He declares that it  is impossible to find a cipher in the first  folio of Shakespeare because none exists.  Alarm has been caused in court dressmaking circles by the official announcement that modifications are likely to be  made in the design for peeresses coronation robes. As yet no indication of tlie  character of the changes to bo made has  been given, and while one paper says it  is expected that they will chielly concern the bodice, others say tho authorities are understood to be considering  the length of the ladies trains, which  are to vary according to the rank of tlie  wearer. With thc closing of the earl  marshall's "ofllce for the Christmas holidays', no further announcement is looked for until the new year, when the  work in connection with the magnificent pageant will begin in good earnest.  Lord Wolsely has been occupied during the last twelve months in writing  his memoirs, which are now completed.  It is understood that he will dwell with  special emphasis on the period during  which he occupied the position of commander-in-chief, and his book will he,  in the main, a condemnation of civilian  control of the war ofiice. Lord Wolsely has, it is said, taken full advantage of the opportunity to speak freely  and has produced an indictment of civilians at the war office written on the  lines of his preface to colonel Henderson's life of Stonewall Jackson.  Colonel Temple, director of the British baloon factory has invited M. Santos Dumont to experiment over the great  military camp at Aldershot with, his  flying machine next spring. M. Santos  Dumont is promised official encouragement and nil the facilities that the Aldershot factory can afford.  After exposure for two centuries to  London's acid laden atmosphere, it is  not altogether surprising that the statues on the roof of St. Paul's cathedral  are showing signs of wear and tonr.  Every statue was recently in urgent  need of repairs, but now the most dilapidated have been replaced and the  others straightened and patched. The  ri/���y.,.ofr��iin+po   aj;n. oyaot- ,rpnlip.ns, nf  the  originals as it was possible to make  them, though, of course all details have  beer, lost through the ravages of time,  ihe repairs consisted in clamping the  rotten pieces of stone with iron bands  and putting pieces of fresh stone in  where most needed, Forty men are employed year in and year out in renewing  the fabric of St. Paul's as it gradually  wears away under the encroachments  of the weather. In the crypt is a completed stone masons shop.  She May Have Elopod  VANCOUVER:, December 22.���[Special to The Tribune.]���more than one  hundred people searched today through  0 heavy rainstorm, for any possible  trace of Mrs. Powell, the woman who  disappeared from her home Thursday  afternoon and has hot been heard of  since. The whole district, of brush for  three miles around the Powell residence  has been scoured, but so far not the  slightest trace has been found of the  woman's clothing or body. Six -police  officers systematically beat up*aud down  through the woods all last night but  the result is the same as before. This  evening police declare they are prer.ty  well satisfied that the woman could not  have been murdered there, at least by  the man who called at the house on  Thursday apparently to sell poultry, and  with whom Mrs. Powell left the house.  The theory that, she may have eloped  with another German resident named  Otto Lansar who had been her lover in  Germany before her marriage is gaining  ground especially as slie and her husband had some words last Monday when  Powell came home drunk. Friends of  the missing woman continue, to -assert,  however, that she would never have  left her children,,and that she must certainly itve met with foul play. It was  reported from Westminster this evening  that a woman, had been found there  dead having apparently been strangled  but this proved to be incorrect.    -  CABLE   STOCKS  DROPPING  Owing to Marconi's Success.  LONDON, December. 22.���Owing to  Marconi's success the fall in the securities of cable companies, whicli commenced with the announcement of the  success of Marconi's experiments in having signals transmitted across the ocean  by his wireless system of telegraphy,  has been continuous throughout the  week. Since December 14th,"Anglo-  American .*���,*. preferreds" have dropped ,7  points, and ordinary shares have dropped 4 points, while Eastern telegraph  was a close second with a fall of 5 1-2  points.  ST. JOHNS, Newfoundland,. December  22.���Finance minister Fielding, of the  Dominion government, telegraphed to  Marconi yesterday morning from Ottawa, .offering him, on behalf of the  Canadian cabinet every facility for  erecting wireless telegraphy stations on  the Nova Scotia seaboard, and making  him most encouraging propositions, assuring him that there is no obstacles:  iiTthe way of his carrying out his experiments in Canadian territory, and  inviting him to Ottawa to discuss the  matter. In consequence of this flattering proposition Marconi will leave St.  Johns for Ottawa tonight He will meet  at Montreal the capitalists, who,  through governor Boyle, have offered  him financial support in his venture.

WARM  PASTORAL LETTER  ====From=Archbishop=BruchesL-*==  MONTREAL, December 22.���A pastoral  letter from Mgr. Bruchesi, archbishop of  Montreal, was read in the churches today  on the decline of Chrlstian'splrit, and the  growth of the taste for worldly pleasures.  Mothers, it stated, are too often no longer  truly Christian women, and the fathers  not always truly respected and the strong  head of the domestic circle. Conjugal confidence, it says, is disappearing, and the  voke of filial obedience Is weighing heavily. The archbishop strongly denounced  theaters and public halls. According to the  testimony of careful and prudent people,  dances that shock decency, dresses that  outrage good taste as well as modesty, and  songs of a character that would not be tolerated in more private <-.rcles are permitted and encouraged. The archbishop Is  pained at the growth of the habit of allowing young people to attond gatherings  of this kind unaccompanied by their parents whose attendance was neither reques-  ed nor desired, lie made the request to  Catholic journalists that they should no  longer continue to insert the advertising of  theaters or print advance notices or reviews of the performances.  What Rosebery Must Do.  LONDON, December 22.���The weekly reviews will endorse lord Rosebery's Chesterfield speech with singular unanmity.  But the ironclad Liberal Speaker will prove  the exception in this. The Liberal Speaker  will indignantly repudiate the suggestion  that anyone is capable of replacing sir  Henry Campbell-Bannerman In the leadership of the party. The Spectator, the  Outlook and the Saturday Review, while  differing slightly in discussing lord Rosebery's pronouncement of the varying political standpoints, all will agree that he  has struck one clear note amidst the discord of the opposition. A point upon which  each of these reviews will strongly insist  is that in order to becomo an effective leader, lord Rosebery must leave the easy seclusion of his library, face the disagreeable  features of a campaign and wrest the leadership from its present holders.  Blomberg Acquitted.  HELENA, Montana, December 22.���C. P.  Blomberg, who killed W. S. Millspaugh, a  Chicago mining millionaire last October,  during a quarrel, was acquitted by a jury  at Virginia City after having been out 12  minutes. Blomberg had been employed by  Millspaugh, but tfiey disagreed.over somo  trivial affair. Blomberg met Millspaugh in  the mountains, and considering the latter's attitude threatening, picked up a  stone and crushed his skull. The plea of  self defense was sustained by the jury.  Millspaugh was formerly general solicitor  of the Southern Pacific and an Intimate  friend of thc late C. P. Huntington.  Germany After the Trade.  NEW" YORK, December 22.���Jt Is stated  on good authority that a well known German bank contemplates opening branches  in South Africa," says a dispatch to the  Tribune from London. Such a move would  materially assist the expansion of German commerce, and British merchants and  manufacturers are warned that if the  United Kingdom is to maintain its lead  in affairs in South Africa It Is necessary to  nut forth.everv effort to secure that result.  ANOTHER HORROR  MURDERED   THE   FAMILY  WHILE ASLEEP.  FATHER ACCUSED OF THE CRIME  IN   ORDER   TO   MARR7   A  WEALTHY WOMAN.  NEW YORK, December 22.���The Paris  correspondent of the Tribune says: Public  attention in Paris and throughout France  is abs-orbed by a murder trial that began  Monday at Charles.- The tragic circumstances make it the most remarkable criminal case that* has taken place since the  Dreyfus court, martial, and owing to the  inquisitorial attitude of the presiding judge  it serves as an object lesson, arousing the  indignation of liberal minded Frenchmen  at what 'they consider a terrible fault, in  the criminal proceedure'of this country.  Balzac, .Victor Hugo and Zola have painted  in indelible- colors the : avarice of the"  French peasant.:Judicial annals teem with  cases of sons and daughters doing away  with their aged parents or grand parents  to enter upon; the immediate enjoyment'of  their inheritance. But this is the lirst time  a man has been tried in 'France for murdering his live little children;* beginning  with the- eldest, by successively cutting  their 'throats while sleeping, in order, as  ihe judge proclaims hlmselt, to marry his  mistress, a woman of reputed wealth who  dldnot want a- man with^a family. Briere,  the accused, is a hard headed, reticent peasant, the owner of a small farm near the  picturesque village of: Carranz. He declares  his innocence, stating: hoVis the victim of  hatred of his townsfolk, who at the instigation of another peasant, one Lubin, the  father of the woman he*.wanted to marry,  the man who he accuses t'o be the murderer  of his five'children, concealed:in his* stable  the blood-stained blade of a plow with  which the crime was: committed and placed  other .* blood-stained objects on the premises, thereby providing a chain of circumstantial evidence. Briere's only surviving  child, a young Parisian shop girl, strongly  affirms her father's Innocence. The evidence so far seems decidedly against  Briere, but this is no palliation of the conduct of M. Belat, the presiding-judge, who  at the outset positively stated to the jury  that he was himself firmly convinced of  Briere's guilt. The judge; refused to allow  the jury to examine the premises where the  crime was' committed and conducts the  trial as if he were a; prosecuting attorney.  CHINESE  SHOWING  SPIRIT  Will Hold Manchuria.  PEKIN, December 22.���_ine first discussion of the Manchurian treaty' between  Paul Lessar, the Russian minister, and the  Chinese plenipotentiaries, prince Ching and  Wang Wea Shao, occurred here yesterday.  Prince Ching and AVang Wen- Shao displayed much less compliance with the Russian   policy   than   had   the   late   Li   Hung  Chang. First, the stipulation of ah early  date for the withdrawal of all Russian  troops from Manchuria except the railway guard, the number of which should be  limited. Second, they opposed the paragraph restraining China from increasing  the number of her troops in Manchuria  without consulting Russia, contending that  China must be at liberty to maintain whatever force was necessary in Manchuria to  preserve order there. Third, the request  that an early date bo fixed for returning  the Chwang Shan Kwan railway, and the  considerable reduction of the indemnity  claimed by the Russians for repairing and  maintaining the railway. Fourth, the Chinese plenipotentiaries opposed giving Russia a monopoly of the mining concessions  in  Manchuria.   Prince  Ching has  received  ji Jongjelegram from   Chang .Chi   Tung,_  "viceroy oTTlariko^Wa, exhortlng^liim-to"  maintain the sovereignty of China and  Manchuria.         *   NEWS   OF THE UNITED STATES.

Hulin, former president of  the Panama Canal Company, offered to sell  the canal for $10,000,000, instead of .expecting the United States to dicker about the  price, the United States would- probably  have bought the property."

General Davis has proof  that the recently elected president and vice  councillors and the leading men of ��� Cagayan de;Misamis are,guilty of treason In  furnishing ammunition to the insurgents  within1 the past month. The evidence shows  that all these men were members of: the  secret Katiputan society. General James  Wade, commanding the American forces  on Cebu island, concurs and endorses the  request of general Davis, and reviewing  the situation in Mindanao says that he is  satisfied that the. ends of 'justice, peace  and government will soonest be obtained  by the-.' restoration of military control to  the province of Misamis, and tlie overcoming * of all resistance to that authority.

London's Moral Crusade.  LONDON, December 22.���The hopeless  answer of the home secretary, Mr.  Ritchie, to the deputation headed hy the  duke of Norfolk, from the Westminster  council, protesting against the flagrant  immortality witnessed in the streets of  London, has given zest to the press and  neligious campaign having for its ob-  ject-the. remedying,ofJ.he prebeijt conditions, Mr. Ritchie in his reply to'the  deputation, said in substance that the  statement regarding the immorality of  London had been greatly exaggerated,  and that the police had done much and  were doing more to suppress vice. It is  .maintained that, the scenes witnessed in  Piccadilly and other well-known streets  are worse now than at any time in the  history of the-metropolis. The Saturday  Review in advocating a trial of the  state regulation of vice, declares tliat  London streets nightly bear witness not  only to state recognition and tolerance  of vice, but ruinous indifference to the  course it takes, and manner in which it  works.

The people are flocking to tho rifle ranges. Each citizen is'  allowed to shoot 35 cartridges from a  Mauser rifle gratis and foreign legations  of soldiers are being organized.  The Herald expresses its approval of, /  the" recall of the Argentine minister tb   :  Chili.   The paper does not believe this  step necessarily means   war.     It  says,.,  however, that the Argentine government  could not have followed a more-dignified   course   of   action.    The   Herald, -  speaks   glowingly   of   the   power   and i  present state of organization of the Argentine  navy.

It seems likely* that  both   sides  are  equally blafneablc andr-  that Chile is chiefly' anxious for sufficient delay to enable-her to finish her  loads in the disputed territory.  NEW YORK, December 22.���Accord-,  ing to tho Buenos Ayres correspondent  of the Herald, it is now asserted that ���  the  Chilian  government has  informed;  minister Portela that Chili will not accept the second part of the protocol proposed  by Argentina, to the effect that  Chili is only empowered to maintain a>  police force in Ultima Esperanza,    The"  government    has   authorized    minister.

NEW YORK, December 22.���Discussing the South African war, the London  correspondent of the Tribune quotes the  Globe as follows:   The Globe thinks the  time has not arrived for discussing amnesty and raises its voice in protest  against Mr. Asquith's analogy in the  policy pursued toward the south by the  north at the end of the American civil  war. The question of amnesty mainly  concerns Cape rebels, and that paper  sees no points of resemblance between  their position and that of the soldiers  of tho south. "   Will Pay in Full.

Ford, in a special dispatch  published "today says: "The new Roman Catholic cathedral at Westminster  will be opened three days after the  king's^ coronation.' After careful-consultation with Mr. Bently, the architect,  cardinal Vaughan has decided that the  opening ceremony will take place on  Sunday, June 29th, subject to the reservation that nothing unforsecn intervenes to make a postponement necessary. Active preparations will consequently be instituted to this end with  the new year. The opening ceremony  will be carried out on a scale of the  greatest magnificence. The pope will  be specially represented at the function  by a high dignitary, and it is expected  tliat the principal sees in Europe and  America, in communion with Rome, will  also be represented. Lady Vavasour  lias intimated her intention of cnricning  the interior of thc building with a costly  mosiac ot the" Welsh saint Winifred, as  a contribution toward a scheme of decoration. -        i   ���    i ���  The Uritish consul at Stuttgart, in liis  annual report on the trade, agriculture  and finances of Wui'i.emburg makes some  interesting   remarks   on   the   increase  wliich  has taken  place in Germany  in  thc last few vears in the number and  extent of trusts.    At present, lie says,  Ihcre nrobablv exist between one hundred and one hundred and thirty trusts  of various sizes and discriptions. Among  thc most important may be mentioned  Uie coal, iron, chemical, paper, celluloid  and carbide trusts.    The textile industries do not seem to havo been very successful  in  the formation   of   combina-,  lions.    Thc duration of the trusts is a*  subject of extreme variation and speculation as to their stability is a thing o,  considerable   difficulty   owing   to   U\e  strict  privacy   in   which    intcrnationi-ii  affairs   arc   'conducted.    Tho   principal  object aimed at, is  to regulate buying  and selling by decreasing certain fixed  maximum   and   minimum   prices.     in  many cases districts arc apportioned ior  selling purposes to various members ot  the trusts and  the amount of production is limited in order to prevent overproduction and any consequent rail in  prices.   Rigid organization is absolutely  imperative aud in some cases discipline  is maintained by the exaction of heavy  fines and sureties.  pro-Bacons are not any more popuiai  here than pro-Boers, and when Sidney  Lee enters the lists against the disciples of the ciper, as he has" done by denouncing what he calls "the Baconian  bacillus^in^a^lcttei^toahe^Tinigs^Eng-,  She May Have Elopod  VANCOUVER, December 22���[Special to The Tribune.]���More than one  hundred people searched today through  o heavy rainstorm, for any possible  trace of Mrs. Powell, the woman who  disappeared from her home Thursday  afternoon and has not been heard of  since. The whole district of brush for  three miles around the Powell residence  has been scoured, but so far not the  slightest trace has been found of the  woman's clothing or body. Six police  officers systematically beat up and down  through the woods all last night but  the result is the same as before. This,  evening police declare they are pretty  well satisfied that the woman could not  have been murdered there, at least by  the man who called at the house on  Thursday apparently to sell poultry, and  with whom Mrs. Powell left the house.  The theory that slie may have eloped  with another German resident named  Otto Lansar who had been her lover in  Germany 'before her marriage is gaining  ground especially as she and her husband had some words last Monday when  Powell came home drunk. Friends of  the missing woman continue to* assert,  however, that she would never have  left her children, and that she must certainly ave met .with foul play. It was  reported from Westminster this evening  that a woman., had been found there  dead having apparently been strangled  but this proved to be incorrect.    -  CABLE   STOCKS  DROPPING  Faubourg* St. Antoine, December 3rd, 1S51,  tolne, a statue to the memory of Charles  Napoleon.

That there are topographical peculiarities to the Shakespeare first folio Mr.  Lee admits, but after collecting some  twenty-five copies, and being moreover  thoroughly versed in Bacon's biliteral  cipher svstcm, he ridicules the idea ot  there being any method or meaning in  these peculiarities.. He declares that it  is impossible to find a cipher in the first  folio or Shakespeare because none exists. --    .   ,  Alarm has been caused in court dressmaking circles by the oillcial annouiu-.e-  nipnt that modifications are likely to be  made in the design for peeresses coronation robes. As yet no indication ot the  character of the changes to be made has  been given, and while one paper says it  is expected that they will chiefly concern tho bodice, others say tho authorities are understood to be considering  the length of the ladies trains, which  are to vary according to the rank of the  wearer.

Lord Wolsely has been occupied during the last twelve months in writing  his memoirs, which are now completed.  It is understood that he will dwell with  special emphasis on the period during  which he occupied the position of commander-in-chief, and his book will hex  in the main, a condemnation of civilian  control of the war office. Lord Wolsely has, it is said, taken full advantage of the opportunity to speak freely  and has produced an indictment of civilians at the war ofiice written on the  lines of his preface to colonel Henderson's life of Stonewall Jackson.  Colonel Temple, director of the British baloon factory has invited M. Santos Dumont to experiment over the great  military camp at Aldershot with, his  flying machine next spring. M.

WARM  PASTORAL LETTER  NEW YORK, December 22.���The Paris  correspondent of the Tribune says: Public  attention in Paris and throughout France  is absorbed by a murder trial that began  Monday at Charles. The tragic circumstances make it the most remarkable criminal ease that has taken place since the  Dreyfus court martial, and owing to the  inquisitorial attitude of the presiding judge  it serves as an object lesson, arousing the  indignation of liberal minded Frenchmen  at what they consider a terrible fault in  the criminal proceedure of this country.  Balzac, .Victor Hugo ana Zola have painted  in indelible colors the avarice of theN  French peasant. Judicial annals teem with  cases of sons and daughters doing away  with their aged" parents or grand parents  to enter upon the immediate enjoyment of  their inheritance. But this is the first time  a man has been tried in France for murdering his five little children, beginning  with thc eldest, by successively cutting  their throats while sleeping, in order, as  lhe judge proclaims himself, to marry his  mistress, a woman of reputed wealth who  did not want a man wlth.a family. Briere,  tho accused, is a hard headed, reticent peasant, the owner of a small farm near the  picturesque village of Carranz. He declares  his innocence, stating he is the victim of  hatred of his townsfolk, who at the instigation of another peasant, one Lubin, the  father of the woman he wanted to marry,  the man who he accuses tb be the murderer  of his fivo children, concealed in his stable  the blood-stained blade- of a plow with  which the crime was committed and placed  other blood-stained objects on the prem-*  ises, thereby providing a chain of circumstantial evidence. Briere's only surviving  child, a young Parisian shop girl, strongly  affirms her father's innocence. The evidence so far seems decidedly against  Briere, but this is no palliation of the conduct of M. Belat, the presiding'judge, who  at the outset positively stated to the jury  that he was himself firmly convinced of  Briere's guilt. The judge refused to allow  the Jury to examine the premises whero the  crime was committed and conducts the  trial as if he were a. prosecuting attorney.

Depew, who arrived at Plymouth on December 22nd on the North  German Lloyd steamer Kaiser Wilhelm der  Grosse, and Miss May Palmer, has now  been fixed for December 2Sth at Nice. Senator Depew in aa interview with a representative of the Associated Press today  said: "Had M. Hulin, former president of  the Panama Canal Company ortered to sell  the canal for $40,000,000, instead of expecting the United States to dicker about the  price, the United States would probably  have bought the property." The senator  also said that he believed that the decision  reached yesterday by the Panama. Canal  Company had come too late.  & Ticket Forgers at Work.  KANSAS CITY, December 22.���A gang of  forgers of- railroad tickets has been operating in Kansas City during the last few-  weeks, according to the general passenger  agent of the Missouri Pacific, who has  been   investigating   the   fraud   with   other  railroad men. Ho said: "The losses of  western railroads will amount to thousands  of dollars. The Missouri Pacific has) suffered  severe  losses  but our  road  is  only  one of the many which have been defrauded."       WANTS MILITARY CONTROL  of the Nicaraguan canal question and  the ratification of the Hay-Pauncefote  treaty, are about to be resumed. Diplomatic overtures have again been made  to the United States to refer the Question to .arbitration. This, it is thought,  is an opportune time to again bring up  the subject, as the opinion is held that  in view of Great Britain's generous behavior touching the Nicaraguan canal,  the United Stales might consent to arbitration on conditions honorable to-both  parties. \ <   ,  Cotton to Succeed Lugrin.

In     "   -     * '        * *     '"  From Archbishop Bruchesi.  MONTREAL, December 22.���A pastoral  letter from Mgr. Bruchesi, archbishop of  Montreal, was read in the churches today  on the decline of Christian'spirit, and the  growth of the taste for worldly pleasures.  Mothers, it stated, are too often no longer  truly Christian women, and the fathers  not always truly respected and the strong  head of the domestic circle. Conjugal confidence, it says, is disappearing, and the  voke of filial obedience is weighing heavily. The archbishop ^strongly denounced  theaters and public halls. According to the  testimony of curcful and prudent people,  dances thnt shock decency, dresses that  outrage good taste as well as modesty, and  songs of a character that would not be tolerated In more private lu-c1os are permitted and encouraged. The archbishop Is  pained at the growth of the habit of allowing young people to attend gatherings  of this kind unaccompanied by their parents whose attendance was neither reques-  cil nor desired. He made the request to  Catholic journalists that they should no  longer continue to insert the advertising of  theaters or print advanco notices or reviews of the performances.  What Rosehery Must Do.  LONDON, December 22.���The weekly reviews will endorse lord Rosebery's Chesterfield speech with singular unanmlty.  But the ironclad Liberal Speaker will prove  the exception in this. The Liberal Speaker  will indignantly repudiate the suggestion  that anyone is capable of replacing sir  Henry Campbell-Bannerman in the leadership of the party. The Spectator, tho  Outlook and the Saturday Review, while  differing slightly in discussing lord Rosebery's pronouncement of the varying political standpoints, ull will agree that he  has struck one clear note amidst the discord of the opposition. A point upon which  each of these reviews will strongly insist  is that in order to become an effective leader, lord Rosebery must leave the easy seclusion of his library, face the disagreeable  features of a campaign and wrest the leadership from its present holders.  Blomherg Acquitted.  HELENA, Montana, December 22.���C. P.  Blomberg, who killed W. S. Millspaugh, a  Chicago mining millionaire last October,  during a quarrel, was acquitted by a jury  at Virginia City after having been out 12  minutes. Blomberg had been employed by  Millspaugh. but they disagreed, over somo  trivial affair. Blomberg met Millspaugh in  the mountains, and considering the latter's attitude threatening, picked up a  stone and crushed his skull. The plea of  self defense was sustained by tho jury.  Millspaugh was formerly general solicitor  of the Southern Pacific and an intimate  friend of the late C. V. Huntington.  Germany After the Trade.

First, the stipulation of an early  date for the withdrawal of all Russian  troops: from Manchuria except the railway guard, the number of which should be  limited. Second, they, opposed the paragraph restraining China from increasing  thet number of her- troops in Manchuria,  without consulting Russia, contending that  China must be at liberty to maintain whatever force was necessary in Manchuria to  preserve order there. Third, the request  that^an early date be fixed for returning  the Chwang Shan Kwan railway, and the  considerable reduction of the indemnity  claimed by the Russians for repairing and  maintaining the railway.

Goneral Davis has proof  that the recently elected prosident and vice  councillors and the leading men of Cagayan de Misamis are guilty of treason In  furnishing ammunition to the insurgents  within the past month.

BUENOS    AYRES,    December   22.���  General Mitre, president of the boun-,  dary commission and former president  of Argentina, will approve of the reso-'  lution of the Argentine government to  withdraw senor Portela, the Argentine  minister to Chili.   The people are flock- '  ing to the rifle ranges.   Each citizen is  allowed to shoot 3b cartridges from a  Mauser rifle gratis and foreign legations  of soldiers are being organized.  The Herald expresses its approval of  the recall of the Argentine minister to   '  Chili.   The paper .does not believe this =  step necessarily means   war.     It  says,,  nowever, that the Argentine government  could not have followed a more dignified   course   of   action.     The   Herald  speaks   glowingly   of 'the   power   and1 *-  present state of organization of the Ar-  .  gentine  navy.    The   Chilian   minister  here had a conference yesterday even--  ing With general Roca, president of Ar-  -  gentina.    General  Roca's  demeanor-to *  the Chilian minister was-cold and he  spoke with energy.  VALPARAISO,   December   22.���Senor  Poi tela, Argentine minister to Chili, will,.  leavo'here Wednesday for Buenos Ayres.  ���NEW YORK,'December 22.���A curious I  commentary on Chile's  claim that tho  Argentine Republic is delaying the set-.:  tlement of the dispute L'efveen the t*c  countries is the fact that in the arb\  tration  airangement Argentina's  ^se ���.  was all "furnished   many   months   ago,/  filling seven fat volumes, while the British commission was unable to make a  decision  because  Chile's case was not  yet presented, says the London correspondent of the New York Times.    As  for Chile's hope of Great Britain's good  ���.  offices, if it means fresh mediation it is   '  unlikely that this will be offered until  it is certain that both sides desire it., r  The foreign office says it is without information in regard to this latest' outbreak of the old quarrel, save that In the  press dispatches.    It seems likely that    -.  both  sides  are  equally blameablc  and  that Chile is chiefly anxious for sufficient delay to enable her to finish her  roads in the disputed territory.  NEW YORK, December 22.���Accord-    .  ing to thc Buenos Ayres correspondent  of the Herald,  it is now asserted that -  the  Chilian   government  has   informed  minister Portela that Chili will not ac- ���  ccpt thc second part of the protocol pro- ���  posed by Argentina, to the effect that  Chili is only empowered to maintain a  police force in Ultima Esperanza.   The  government    has   authorized    minister  Portela to reject the Chilian basis of .  settlement.   It is therefore probable that  "*^<!T  W*bf;.  -v.'^n  li-��,"  ���**Us  ->���/���  minister Portela will leave Santiago if  Chili does not make a better proposition.  Not Time for Amnesty.  NEW YORK, December 22.���Discussing the South African war, the London  coi respondent of the Tribune quotes the  Globe as follows. The Globe thinks tlio  time has not ai rived for discussing amnesty and mises its voice in protest  against Mr. Asquith's analogy in the  policy pui sued towaid the south by the  north at the end of the American civil  war. The question of amnesty mainly  concerns Cape rebels, and that paper  sees no points of icsemblance between  their position and that of the soldiers  of the south.  Will Pay in Full.

There was no way out of it and  the mayor acknowledged the corn. He  was therefore disqualified from filling  the office of mayor and was further disqualified for two years. Mayor Morris  owed his discomfiture to a feud between  himself and the chief of police. He endeavored to have the chief fired but  failed. At the time the chief threatened  to get even and he did. In view of the  circumstances an effort was made to  have the attorney-general lift the penalty for Morris' offence but he refused.  He held that the penalty might he severe but it was the'law, and until it was  changed it would be enforced.

It has brought home to  thocpeople of the Boundary how very  dependent they are after all upon the  gigautic trusts which dominate the industrial affairs of the United States.  But how little interest is taken in the  matter outside of the confines of the  province.. The manipulation of the: copper' market for the past week has made  it as clear as could bo that the copper  mining industry of British Columbia  could be stifled in a week if it suited  the purpose of the copper trust to will  it so. Yet is safe to say that the matter  will notreceive even passing notice'from  the press, of eastern Canada. It will be  the same:as it was when, a year ago, the  hostility qf the United States lead trust  prompted it to withdraw its purchasing  agents from tlie silver-lead districts of  the Slocan and East Kootenay. At this  time, aside from the interest which the  situation had for a few of tlie mining.  Most of the Crew Killed.

Columbia in  the east  in  their  c-fforts to secure for British Coli.'nilu'as  chief industry, any lasting measure of  ielief.   It is.therefore evident if British  Columbia is to secure from tlie east that  recognition  which  its  importance  and  the urgency of its requirements demand,  there must be stimulated there a healthy  interest in its development.   Tlie people  of  Ontario,   Quebec and   the   Maritime  provinces must be awakened to tlie fact  ihat  British  Columbia is a portion of  the Dominion, and ono of groat possibilities,   and    tliat    stagnation   cannot  come  to it without corresponding loss  to themselves.   British Columbia cannot  ' continue to be profitable market for the  manufacturers of Ontario and the farmers of Manitoba and the Northwest unless its chief industries are safeguarded.  The driving of this thought home to the  people     of     the     east   . should     be  the     work    of     the     press     of    this  province.       When     this     is     accomplished there will  be no  more apathy  when the claims of the province for consideration at Ottawa come up, and fed-~  eral administrations, whether Liberal or  Conservative,   will   be   prodded   up   to  action until the future and stability of  its mining industry is assured.    It will  then be the concern of, the federal ministers to see how far the present national policy of fostering Canadian industries can be stretched to preserve for  the mines their home market and what  other  steps may  be necessary  for the  profitable placing of the surplus products  in   the   markets   of the   world.    When  this time arrives British Columbia will  be independent of both the copper and  the lead trusts of the United States.  Don't miss seeing our  fine line of Xmas goods.

Following on  the heels ol' the awful disasters at tho  Soho furnace of Jones &. Lauglilin on  Thursday, and at the Black Diamond  Steel Works on Friday, the city was  shocked this morning: by the report of  another explosion at Singer-Nimick's..  west end plant of the ."Crucible- Steel  Company of America, in which seven  men were scalded, ono badly cut and  twenty or thirty others slightly burned.  At G:.r)5 o'clock two of a battery of  five boilers, used to operate tne sheet  mill exploded with terrific force. Scalding water played havoc among tho workmen, who had just started in for tlie  day, while parts of the boiler caused  great, destruction to thc mill .property.  Of the seven >nen scalded, two it is said,  will die. Thc cause of Use explosion is  attributed to frozen pipes, which supplied'the t*vo boilers of the fivo with  water. About sixty men were at work  in the sheet mill when the explosion of  "the boilers occurred.  THE CANADIAN  BANK OF COMMERCE  WITH WHICH IS 'amalgamated  THE BANK  OF BRITISH COLUMBIA.

Assau.t Story Denied'  -WASHINGTON, December 22.���Both  :at the Whito House and at the British  embassy an emphatic denial is made of  the published story of an assault alleged  to have been made on the president-on  Thursday afternoon. The president him-  :self declares tho story is not true, and  .authorizes * the denial of it. Lord  Pauncefote, thc British ambassador,  ���who-is said to have been a witness of  the assault, says Uis story grew out' of  l.ho fact "that an intoxicated man was  lurching along Massachusetts avenue  on Thursday afternoon as the president  ���was*** Iaking his daily walk, and that the  man brushed against the president. A  secret service officer arrested the man,  but it is understood that he'was soon  afterwards released. A senal.ional story,  that the president had been struck in the  presence of lord Pauncefote, was printed  in New York yesterday.  SAVINGS BANK DEPARTMENT: -  Intorosfc allowed on  deposits.

The  new robes favored by royalty havc0 a  long train and small miniver cape, while  the .skirt is looped back: and caught up  with bows so as to show the white un-  derdress, whicli is edged with miniver.  Though the change doubtless suits  most of thorn, it has put several peeresses and court dressmakers in a quan-  dry, for work on many of the robes had  already commenced. An interesting report is in circulation, to the effect that  queen Alexandra will be attended at the  coronation by four duchesses, dressed  iri cloth gold and wearing their robes  and coronets. Those selected are said  to be t.he duchesses .of Marlbrough,  Montrose, Sutherland, and Portland.  They are numbered among the most  beautiful women5 in England.   wTp. tierney  Tolephono 265.

Hedley of this city has been nominated by the council of the Canadian Mining Institute as one of Its vice-presidents..  .The annual meeting of the -institute will  be held in Montreal on March 5lh.  The whereabouts of an old man named  Love, is causing some uneasiness on the  part of a number of citizens who knew  lljm. Love has been out of luck for some  timo and frequently secured lodging in the  city lock-up, but he has not bee seen since  Wednesday and fears for his safety .are  entertained. "  A meeting of the flre, water and light  committee of the city council will bo held  this afternoon at 2:30 o'clock for the purpose of inquiring into the death of one of  the horses recently purchased by the city  in Rosland. In connection with this matter  chief Lillie and driver Stutter of the  fire  Dr. Forin of Slocan was in Nelson vester-  da yon his way to Rossland, where he will  conduct the medical examination of the  men to be ���recruited by major heckle for  service in South Africa. The doclor will  also conduct the examination of the Nelson  men on Tuesday and will then proceed to  Cranbrook to examine the Kast Kootenay  recruits.  A pretty wedding look place Saturday at  St. Saviour's church, Hew li. P. Flewelling  officiating, when Lillian Augusta, eldest  daughter of George Gurd of Nelson, was  married to Goorge Simpson McTavish,  manager of the B. C. Canning .Company at  Rivers Inlet, and son of the late George  R. McTavish, inspector of the Hudson's  Bay Company. E. C. Wragge supported the  groom and Miss Eleanor Gurd was bridesmaid. The bride was given away by her  brother,. \V. h'. Gurd of Cranbrook. She  was handsomely gowned in a traveling suit  of fawn broadcloth with hat to match.  After the ceremony a'reception was held  at the residence of the bride's parents,  where a few intimate friends repaired to  congratulate the happy : couple. Mr. and  Mrs. McTavish left on the evening train  for an extended honeymoon through southern California:  Word was.received in Nelson last evening  to the effect that negotiations bad been  completed in Kaslo for the erection there  of a 200 ton smelter in connection with  which a relinery will be operated. It is announced that the smelter and relinery will  be built aud operated by the Glasgow syndicate which is represented in this province  bv T. B. Stewart. This is the project which  Mr. Gintzburger, of the Monitor mine at  Three Forks,, has been nursing for somo  time past. Mr. Stewart did not arrive from  Glasgow until a short time ago and the announcement that the negotiations liavo  boen completed will come as a surprise, as  those who were supposed to be in the confidence of Use Glasgow syndicate did not  hold out anv hope that the matter would  be settled for several -weeks. If the report  proves to be true Kaslo-will soon be enjoying an era of prosperity which its people  will bail with pleasure. IL is understood  that the smelter end' of the project will  be proceeded with first and the refinery  contingent upon 'such actiqn a.s may be  taken by the Canadian Pacific Railway  Company,   Good Supply of Matte.
