 yr y^^Jr,>mm^:^^Sk  ESTABLISHED  1892  EEIDAY  MORNING,  OCTOBER-IS,   1901  OF   WHOLESALERS   AND  - RETAILERS..  REPRISALS ABE THREATENED BY  BOTH UNDER CERTAIN  CONDITIONS.  The joint meting of the-retail and  wholesale grocers which was held in  the Miners' Union hair last evening was  probably the warmest thing of the kind  that has ever been pulled off in the  ^Kootenays. It was generally understood  that the meeting was called for*tha purpose of arriving-at something in the  way of a settlement of the differences  which have cropped up m Nelson 'between the retail and wholesale tiadera,  and that it was one m which"* both sides  would give ond tako with a view of ar-  * riving   at   some   satisfactory   solution,  r   but   the   meeting   had   not  progressed  very far when it became evident that  each side was disposer to talce all there  was,in"sight and give'as little as pds-'  fiLle and at times the discussion became  -rather acrimonious?  .       The meting was the outcome of a areolar which the letail men caused to be  isMied to the reta'il tnde throughout the  district asking tbe retail ?trade-to. cooperate in^ an-effort to defeat the* action of tho Nelson Board of Trade m  .seeking to'secure for the'wholesalers' of  Nelson 'a .wholesalers tariff similar to  ���those .obtaining' in other wholesale centers under which .the -wholesalers,would  ��� leceive a cut in freight' rates on goods  |    reshippod from Nelson" to retail traders  ".-within a ceitain,area,to be recognized  ���as tributary to Nelson." This circular received attention from both'the board of  ..rado and,tho loeal'wholesalers'-association. Tho board of trade considered the  ���circular indiscreet and appointed a' special  committee ot three-to,-, wait, upon  the retailers and urge the .withdrawal  of this portion' of the'circular,* and the  wholcsaJers ir.a communication, to. .the  f��-wJStoUo-p|'-iexpressecJ'Hheir^illingness-lo  ["y -a: ectHhe" T etailers art*(Tdisauss and griev-  " ances that they-might/have ^against the  manner in which- the'wholesale" trade  was handled  in Nelson,  but declining  to touch the?clause in tbe report dealing with the securing o�� the wholesalers  ta.-1-f. With a view to bunging matters  io   a   head   the   wholesalers   suggested  that  the  retailers  should  define  what  they considered as their field. T  _. At the meeting last evening practically every retail grccei in the city was  j ��pi escnted. T. S.- McPherson was in'the  chair and Chris Mom.on' acted as scc-  ictary.

Mr. --iQlia-pwa'ii*-.pT:  The A.   Macdonald  Company was-woii  prepared-''in?-this respect, and produced  large number cf dbs-'umants*' to -.bear  jjiut- his contention. The tai kins; far. -tin.  Cfailers was chlefly: done; by secretory  i6rr_son, Ceorge' Bell; T_ j. Scanlan,  S. Dc-Bricay of Ymir, and II. Geigerich  of Sandon. With tho exception of Mr.  J-esBrisay they contended for the limitations of the wholesale trade as deatied  in thoir memorandum,-and in support  of their contention cited a number of  ii stances  that had  come within their  own .knowledge  of wholesalers  selling  to families in the city and district and  of tho demoralizing effect of such practices upon  thoir trade. Tnis phase of  tho difficulty was fought back and forth  with  no  progress  being  made' toward  a'--settlement,   the  letailers  contending  that, they did ^not buy from the local  wholesalers  for  thi)  rtason  that  they  competed with them in-what was legitimately   the   letail   trade    and  the  wholesalers m their turn holding that  tho retailers in requesting them to foie-  go  tho contractor's trade and that of  the large mir.es were ar king them to let  go  the  substance for the  shadow,  as  the local 'retailers would not buy from  ihom without .ubmitting them  to tho  impossible  competition  of  special  cn-  cumstances as presented by the traveling salesman from out_.de wholesalers.  There was for a tnre a disposition on  tho part of the retailers to force the  3iands of   the   whol'^-dc   men   present  and  ignore  their  request  for  time  to  meet and cmsider the definition of .tbo  retailers as to their field and this in"the  end caused Mr  Robertson to go on record that so far as he was individually  concerned ho'was not prepared to accept the teims proposed that the wholesalers-should  not  sell/to  ccnti actors.  PIad-_.it  not  teen *for  the   contractors'  tiade   he  had   seemed   since   his  firm  opened theii Nelson bianch their business would rot have amounted' to very  much," and  m  sapport of this  he in-*"  stanced a recent case in whicli he had  sold a ontractor a bill of goods aggre  gating- el?ht  carloads    So   far < as  the  trade with the large mining companies  was concerned he said he had been'talk-  .ing the matter over^with the managers  of some of lhe laigest mining companies, arid one mining 'ir an in particular  had informed him that if hit. companv  was   debaired   fiom   Diiying  from   the  local wholesalers thoy would buy fiom  outside .wholesale  houses   He  did  not  wish to be understood that some understanding n isht not ba arrived at with  respect to this tiade in the wav of 11m-  iiations, but as.the limits had boen laid  down by the retailers he tor one would  not accept,them.  .' The objections taken by Mr. Robertson were supported by Messrs Chapman  and Hamilton, and the latter. supplemented what Mr. Robertson had said <by  saying that he .had been ynformed by>  captain Duncan tha. in'the event of the  large mining companies being deprived  of the-privilege of'buying from the local  .wholesalers" they, would pool^their ship-  .ments.and'bring-m their supplies m car  lead lots from tho "east '  This was challenged by.Mr. Giegench,  who volunteered the' information that?  at the .last meeting of the Mine Owners'?  Association ,the    question    had    been?  brought*up and 'voted��� down, the*ohly-i  members in favor* of it being captain;'  Duncan.oj. Roderick Robertson and one-  other member, whose name he did no��  remember.   This in turn was replied toby Mr. Chapman, who said that t'ne mat-'  ter-referred to by'Mr. Hamilton was of;  a more recent date than that covered by?  the action of the mine owners at their  last meeting,      v , ���'  ..;, Mr..Robertson then.asked tor,-some es-��  _Pressipn?;qfy'bpiitfo^  ithe Retailers ^thought* they .'could .reasoii-?  :ablyi'';imip3qn: up^  whplesal,ers?and-eo'ritractors."'- lie ihquir-^  ;ed'; specially? whether, it Wasythegdesire:  ofy the:'retailers;* to viriterfereywithV'Such  ^a}ii^s^-Jie?badIhj-(-2jyith^  :which involved .the sale of :two car-loads,  of,.butter:at:a.Crack-'*arid orders of.egiial*  - size. .:cHe- wanted:-" to? knbw.ywhetheR the;  ^retailers *of ��� Nelson:, desired?:the Vlocal?  wholesale men to.set an.;example-to. the:  "rest of the wholesalers of the Dominion.  ���The retailers -did-.not -appear ready to  ���answer.;this, y One   suggested   that; no  trade could, be':done- with contractors,  another, that such trade should be con-  firied ;to caryload lots,- and another that  the-wholesalers should be permitted to  ^secure such of this trade.as they, could.*  A similar question was raised with respect .to" the tradeVwith .the mines;    In  reply to tH? somet of the retailers held'  that mines were   riot? entitled   to buy  wholesale, even when they had a store  in connection with their-mines, 'ori the  ground thaf the chief business was mining and not retail "dealing, in merchandise,   The:dispUEsi,bri upon ?this became  very heated and  for a tinio'van"open  rupture wa�� threatened, in th�� cpurse of  which one of;the .wholesalers intipia'ted"  that if such a rule, wad enforced hJs firm  might contemplate entering into the retail trade.

No  such sum was ever before demanded.  Brigands��ask about ��1000 and then  agree to half. Twenty-five thousand  Turkish pounds-means two horse loads  of gold and that is more gold than there  now is in Bulgaria. Besides, the brigands demand payment in Turkish gold,  for which it would be necessary to1 send  to Constantinople. I should not give the  brigands the ransom until Miss Stone Is  safely delivered to us,-as they might  murder her after the ransom in order  to seal her lips forever. We have three  theological institute students who were  captured in the Stone party. One tells  pathetically how he was robbed of  money intended to pay for his tuition.  CONSTANTINOPLE, October 17.���As  no news has been received here from  Mcssis. Baird and Haskell, the missionaries who have been attempting to get  into tou\;h with the two brigands who  abducted Pliss Ellen M Stone, a third  missionary'has been dispatched in quest  of them and the briganos.      .

NEW YORK, .October 17.���The New  York Medical Journal for Saturday, October 19th, will contain the full "official  report of the surgeons who attended the  late   president,   William  McKinley,   in  .Buffalo.^The report contains upwards'of  15,000 words 'and- constitutes the'.official  record of the (fase.   This ieport is signed by doctors'C.**M. Rixey^Mattliew D.*  Mann, Herman  Mynter,  Roswei 1? Park,"  Eugene Wasdin, Charles McBurney and  Charles G. Stockton, as members of the  medical staff attending the late president*.  The;'report( p?C  th'e   autopsy-is  -signed by Dr^Harvey R. Gaylord,' pathologist,' -while,the-report on the.bacteriological examination bearsi the 'signature of Dr? Herman G. Matzinger, bacteriologist to the New,York State, Pathological 'Laboratory.    The   ieport   describes in detail the, events immediately  following the, shooting, which/'are already familiar-to thespublic.   Then fol-  'lo\vs1.a description.) of the operation in  all. its, technical minutae.   The"*.utmost*.  ��care ^as .used. to j prevent infection, ot  'the abdominal cavity-. and followed by'  'the most approved modem methodst of  .surgical-cleanliness.- The wounds m^the  -stomach were i saturated with siflc.-vus-.  _mgvdoublei- rows ,of_jstitches, arranged.  >that the^greatest possible secunty.was  ���"given. .The application of these stitches  .was  accompanied   Dy great difficulties,  ' especially" the -suturing _oi the*" opening  in the posterior wall-^of the  stomach.'  The chief tiduble.was the depth^of the  "abdominal cavity,' the   lack  of ^.instruments to draw the ..edges ol* thejwound^  (aparfdunng the sewing and^-thejack of-  good light.' ln his comments on<Ahe re-  poit of the operation'Dr Mann-pai ticu-  larly emphasizes the disadvantages un-  jder^-^hic^he laboied-when suturing, the  wounas'in the stomach, with-tlie failing-  light of a September afternoon.   Later  ;>on m the operation a movable electric  light was,used with advantage.'   Speaking of the ^search-for .the'bullet during  'the opeiation the report says  'Tlie operation on the stomach now  being, finished, Dr. Mann mtioduced his  aim so as to note carefully all the-deep  suuetures behind the stomach. No iraCe  'of'bullet or-track of bullet could be  tound. As the introduction of the hand  in this ,way seemed to have a bad m-'  fluence on the president's1 pulse, a pio-  longed seaich for further injury done by  the bullet, or for the bullet itselt, was  desisted from " *  Further search might have caused the  death of the president upon the operating table. At the close of the operation  the surgeons present unanimously assured Dr. Mann in answer to his questions that they were perfectly satisfied  thateverythmg that was 'possible had  been done and that they had no further  suggestions to make.   It was also dccid-  fairly good quality right along the sur-  ���geonsfdid not attribute very-great importance  to  this  symptom.     On   the  seventh day. towards noon the pulse began to grow weaker and grew rapidly  worse.   Stimulants were given'and the  food was discontinued, while castor oil  and an anema of ox gall were given to  move the bowels. At midnight there was  some improvement in the pulse after the  injection of salt solution., in  the subcutaneous tissues.  On the eighth  day  the  condition of  , the president was described as very serious, as he did not respond to stimulation.   Stimulants and injections of salt  solution, coffee  and jbroth' were  given  and continued for some hours. ''At 6:30  the president was restless, at 10 p.- m.  he lost consciousness and continued to  sink until he died at 2:15 a.,m. on Sep-  tember,14th.     - /      .  r Speaking of the criticism that the X-  tray should have been used to'locate'the  bullet, Dr. Mann says   m   the' report-  We were often asked why, after the op-  eration.we did not use the X-ray to find  the bullet.   In the-fiist place, there were.  a.ttno time any symptoms that the bul-  . let was doing harm.   To have 'used the  X-ray simply to have satisfied our curiosity would not'have been warranta-'  b]e,*-as it^would have 'greatly'disturbed  and annoyed the * president and would'  have subjected   him .jalso  to ascertain  ,-nsk.   Had there been signs "of abcess  formation then   the   X ray   could , and*  .would have been used."- *" <��� ' <        "--t   *  ? Dr. Gayloid's repoit of. tWautopgy is  lengthy and detailed.    .Nothing* of'importance was noticed about^ the^woUnd  on < the chest caused by .the  first''shot  J except that the area of skin affected was  found to be a discoloied greenish'yellow*  and that .there was a hemorrhage into*  _the fat under the'skin" beneath" this area/  .The abdominal wound * showed "no evidences of necrosis or'sloughing.;.'No inflammation   of   the   pentonitum   was  found.   The wound m the front wall of  the stomach was fourid .'lield?intact by  silk^ sutures,"   but   the .area ���**of-.the  stomach wall wound was "a-discolored  '. grayish green and'easily torn.Vrhe area  around'the wound on the posterior wall'  of the-stomach was" also *a  dull' gray  color,-but the sutures held* the ..wound"  intact.

Services Cyer Alba's Eemains. .-.*���  NB"W"-. YORK, October 17.���Services  were held in tho chapel of St. Leo's Roman Catholic churph oyer, the remains  of Calos, 16th duke of Alba, who died  Tuesday night at the. .Holland ho_ise.  JJev. Father Nucey the pastor officiated.  ed not to introduce any gauze or tuba  into the abdomin for drainage, as this  was not necessary, but the wound was  not sewed up so tightly that drainage  could not take place naturally.  The report then continues the histoiy  of the case after the operation. The  pi esident's illness is given day by day  and the bulletins as given out by the attending physicians aie incorporated in  the report. On tho fifth ,day, September  10th, took place the much discussed ic-  moval of the stitches from the wound  in the abdominal wall. The repoit  says.  "In the evening the dressings were examined and as there was considerable  staining   from   the   discharges   It   was  thought best to release four stitches and  to' separate the edges .of?the' wound. A  ; littlo slough was observed near tho bullet, covering a space nearly, an inch wide  the '��� thickness of four lap's.   The suppuration seemed to extend down to the  muscle."   The remainder of .the'wound  looked healthy and it-was: thought that  the .infection was,due to 'the, bullet or  io n piece of ��� clothing which -had been  * carried into the wourid at\the- time of  trie ; shooting.    The   wound '(was -then  dressed and on the following day the  patient's condition \ was -very much'improved.   The findings at the autopsy, as  well; as the developments of the case during the last days, exclude'all possibility  of, absolute > injury to the stomach  by.;  the 'premature giving of solid food, as  was alleged .at the time when; the unfavorable, symptoms   camb; 6nf,;after   a  change to. solid: diet.   On;-��� theftfifth day'  -the president sipped hot-water, on the  sixth he had beef; juice,-the first food  ; taken by moutii since the Operation. In  the meantime��� uutritive/'anemas   were  ' coritfnyed but were not well retained.  ;   At 8:30 pn the mprnjng pf the seventh'  day he was allowed  chicken broth, a  very; small piece-of toast-and a small  cup of - coffee.   He did not care for the  toast and' scarcely ate any of it. y The  wound had in the meanwhile been doing very well and had been dressed daily  after the removal of the stitches and the  sloughing tissue.   The president seemed  at his best arid a favorable result was  now confidently predicted. There was no  sign of blood poisoning or of inflarnma-  tion   of   the   perltdnltum.:   The   only-  alarming symptom was his rapid pulse;  and as.the  president  had naturally a  rather rapid pulse and as it had been of |  Thfe   gangrenous, cavity   found-? behind  the stomach involved the pancreas and  the'surrounding loose tissues," the bottom 'of;a* blind pocket' being formed by  -the upper end of tho left kidney, which  was ,found to be lacerated at/that point  to the'extent of about-two centimeters.  .The track of the bullet was then traced  behind^the kidney to the muscles of the  back^wall of the abdomiri;;the direction  *of .the;bullet/however, "could "not   be'  ttracediany further. 'The search for the  bullet was^mosf'thbrough   and   painstaking, but m spite of all efforts it could  not,be-.found and the autopsy had to be  discontinued because the time allowed  ,to it by the family of the late president  had already been exceeded.   Dr. Gaylord  adds:    "As we were satisfied that nothing could be gained by, locating the missing bullet, whicli had set up no reaction  search for it was "discontinued."   Exam-  mationefvthe heart muscles show that  it was affected  by fatty degeneration,  and in some places   the  muscle   fibres  showed groups of dark b;own granules,  demonstrating***^ disej-.eu  condition of  the cardiac muscle.     Dr.   Gaylord   believes that the repa-r  to  the  stomach  wounds had been effective and that the  gangrene around these wounds does not  seem to have been the result of any well  defined cause     He attributes the gangrenous condition of the tissues solely  -to the low-vitality of the-pjXts-TlTtTap^  pearance   of   tho   gangienous   tissues  shows   that   tho   gang,ene   took place  shoitly before  death.    In speaking of-  Hthe casuat.on of the cavity behind the  stomach he says that i<, must be largely  attnbuted to the'action of the missile  It may have resulted from the rotation  of a neaily. spent ball, oi from tha simple concussion of a bullet as it passed  into the soft tlFsues.   The Injury to the  pancreas produced a cavity, which oc-  cuired during the passing of the bullet,  because the cavity was found walled off  by iibor in an advanced stage of oigan-  i7atloa    Tho extensive gangrene of the  pancreas seemed to havo been an Im-  poi tant factor In tho case, though it had  never been shown how much of this organ, must be diseased to cause death.  The wound"in the kidney is of no importance except as showing the track of  tho: bullet. .The  diseased  condition  of  the.heart muscles shows why the pulse  was so freqtiont and why it did not respond to stimulation at the critical moment.  e_i  Bratnober.     ^"T-^^fiSHfeS  M-.n-' 1S���high.y Pro^bletthat;B-ern&a-*  McDonald will -'soon ^retire rfr6mAth^  -management' og the .

BRIEF   CANADfAW   TELEGRAMS  The report of the, bacteriologist is  largely what the doctors call "negative."  It concerns rather the absence of germs  than their presence, -;; A "culture taken  from tbe -wound during life showed several varitie's of germs There were present two of the ordinary germs of suppuration, and one gas-forming germ of  unknown identity. As, a result of the  examination of the various tissues and  fluids removed during: the post mortem.  Dr. Matzinger concludes that the absence of known pathogenic bacteria, particularly In the gangrenous cavity, warrants the conclusion that bacterial infection was not a factor in the condition  found in the autopsy. :.  A chemical arialysis by Dr. Hill of the  remaining bullets and of contents of  cartridge remaining in the murderer's  pistol showed that there was no poisonous matter, thus disposing of the theory  of a poisoned bullet  Foiil Play Is Suspected.

"It ��� is generally. accepted in mining  circles that Bela Kadish of the North-'  port smelter will retire in the very near  futuro from the management of that  property. There is excellent reason to  believe that he has already tendered hiss  resignation. It probably has not been  accepted, as there is some doubt as to  who will bo named to succeed him.

The. Behring sea  sealing fleet have an average catch, a little lower than last season, accounted for,  the skippers  say,   by  the, unfavorable  weather and consequent restlessness of  the seal   herds.

Trouble in Malta.
To understand the conflict at present
going forward between the British government and a section of the population
of Malta one must not lose sight of the
local conditions prevailing in tho Mcd-
ltoiraean naval and military base.
Tho total population of Malta, Gozo,
and the other islands of the group forming the British colony is, roughly, two
hundred thousand, of whom about fifteen
thousand are British troops. Of the remainder, something like a hundred and
iitty thousand or a hundred and sixty
thousand belong to the industrial ela&s,
and some eighteen to twenty thousand
to the middle or** professional class,
while there is a small native order of
nobility, embracing twenty-nine families
and their connectiqns, numbering, perhaps, fifteen bundled persons in all.
The huddle and noble classes speak
Italian, and form the Clerical or Italian
-.party. The whole of the rest of. the
native population—nearly nine-tenths
of the whole—speak their own Maltese
dialect, a strange patois which is as
great a mystery to philologists as is the
origin of the people who speak it to
ethnologists. It is probably derived
from some Carthaginian or --Aiabic
source, and should be classed alongside
Hebrew among Semitic tongues, -while
the people who speak it are probably
Punic in race.
From this it will be seen how little
there is of Italy, about eicher fJie bulk
of tho population or their language. But
if these facts were not sufficiently staking, the following should certainly prove
that the present agitation in favor of
Italian is m no sense a "popular" movement. _ '
Originally Italian was the official language of the island, for the simple reason that it was the language of the educated clafas and of the clerics.    It was
used exclusively in tho legislative and
in the   administration   of   justice,   and
there is no doubt that its use ih the
courts of law gave rise to innumerable
,  , ( cases ot miscarriage of justice,' for it was
bj i as. much a foreign tongue to the vast ma-
(    if jbrity of the suitors as it' would be in
a Shoreditch county court
' At' last a crisis was reached when a
lew years ago a British officer, colonel
Hew son, was committed for coiiteinpt of
couit in not undeistanaing Italian.    So
flagrant a case awoke the home authorises to the injustice of perpetuating Italian as the official language, and in 1S99
English  was  by order-m-council   made
alternative in legal pioceedings deal.ng
with  alien-born  English-speaking persons.    This was the first small step towards remedying the evil.        °
Meantime,   in the   schools—Malta   is
-i.les.-ed with an ideal system o. primary
education by the way—all  teaching  is
imparted for the first-two years in the
native Malteso tongue.    After that pe-
-■tiod the paients have to choose whether
itheir children shall learn, as an alternative language, Italian or English, both
.ol" which aie taught by means.cf the na-
JLive patois.    No pressure is brought to
hear on tho parents in coming to a decio-
iou.    Yet in 189S, 97.8 per cent of vho.ii
favored English, in 1899, 9S.C per cent
r.-vere of like mind, and jn 1900 the pio-
pcttiou rose to 99.4.
I'hat is to say, nine-tenths of tho
-who-i.*1 population, when-making individually a voluntary choice between English ana" Italian, were as nearly as possible unaii'uioud m lavor of tho former.
These fieri .res wore remarkable. Tnoy
made it evident that, when the present
-childhood of tho itlands has grown up,
tho whole population, with negligible
*o\coptions, will understand ahd speak
tho English tongue, while Italian will
more than ever be a foreign language to
It would obviously, under these circumstances, have been a gross und cruel
Injustice to huvo continued to enforce
: Italian as the .official language of the
■Island. Consequently it was, by an cr-
, dcr-in-couiicil in 1899, decreed that after
March 22nd, 1914, the official language
of Malta should.be English.  '.*•'•
Such a degree was:only a fitting interpretation of  the  voluntary  expression
of'popular opinion   a.   oiibwn   in   the
^school returns..-, But it, did not' at all*
i'sait •the'ipurposes of the small middle
..cii-ss oligarchy.   The strength and security of this cla_}s   has   for   long: very
largely rested   on- the  fact,-that   ..hey
speak the official' tongue, and are thus
yraised a-bove" the'^level 'of.the* less educated bulk'of the p. pupation. ? Italian is
-the polite language of Malta, .the tongue
•of the .upper classes.* The "common peo-
yple". are as Zigno rant .of it as are the
;.hulw,ark ofthe aristocracy, just as the
-'■•popular* ignorance 'of the Gaelic tongue
:was the mainstay of the Norman barons
:lh fedual times in our own lands.    To
-.sweiep away Italian .as the official language; of Malta and'.to (substitute in its
/.place a tongue intelligible to the whole
population, is to wipe out th«j power of
the Maltese upper class and to ^drait
• on a constitutional 1?vel with them ihe
-yrhole, population.
For. Malta has a constitution of its
•own, though a - somewhat paradoxical
•one. A.t present 130,000 of the "population of 180,000 are debarred by their
.'ignorance of Italian troya. any parti. 1-
ypation in the government of their country,, and the .whole administration is—=-
•as it is now seen—at the mercy of? a
-small minority the tyrannical' aristoc-
ing colony, but,, on the other hand, it
has a share of autonomy not usually
granted to crown colonies. It is primarily a na.al and militaiy base after the
style of the eaily Koman colonies. Its
government consists of a general officer,
who is governor and commander in
chief—in the present instance sir F. W.
Grenfell. He is assisted by an executive
council consisting of seven official and
three unofficial (nominated) members,
and by a council of government, consisting of six official and thirteen unofficial elected members.
Just as the house of commons at home
has sole authority over supplies and
matters of public expenditure, so all similar affairs are in Malta in the sole
power of the council of government, on
the presumption that it is a representative body.
By tne extension of the constitution
m 1S87 the principle that there should
be no taxation without representation
was still further recognized, and it was
still further decresd that a majority of
the,so-called popularly wit'ted members
of the council of government should
have a veto on all proposals involving
the expenditure of public funds.
Thus it is that at the present moment seven members of tlie upper classes
can bring the whole public business of
the colony to a deadlock. And this is
just what thoy have done. Enraged by
the prospects of losing their unfair supremacy, the Italian party of Malta has
avenged itself by bringing the whole
affairs of Malta to a-standstill.. They
refuso to sanction any public expenditure whatever or to vote any supplies
at all:
Foitunately, Malta is sufficiently a
crown colony to bo within the power of
the home authonties, through the governor, summarily to suspend the con-
situation. To this step Mr. Chamber-
_lain reluctantly had recourse to get out
of tho difficulty.
This "high-handed tyranny .was sufficient excuse for the political agitators
to raise a whirlwind of abuse in 'the
colony. Malta, it must be remembered,
is like all southern countries, in being
the very home of intrigue andt agitation,
and leaders of any seditious movement
are never wanting. ,
A ceitam Dr. Fortunado Mizzi and a
Mr. Azzopardi at once started an outcry against the home government. Curiously enough they were ably seconded
by the Clerical party and the priesthood, .who certainly, as a rule, are not
sympathetic towaids things Italian. But
they have never forgotten or forgiven
the British government's decision on
the question'of mixed marriages in 1S96
—a decision which at the time was considered an outrage to Rome.
Tho clergy not unnatiually carry with
them in the agitation a very laige section of the uneducated populace, and
the result is a seemingly national protest, backed by apparently every class,
and couched in the most passionate'and
heai tf elt phraseology • f i om the people
of Malta.
Hence it is that we arrive at the Gil-
bertian position of the people of Malta
supporting their oppiessors against
their deliverers, anrt opposing a reform
thoy have shown to be absolutely neces-
They aie hot blooded, easily moved

man comes along.    He s elected by an
'awakened public conscience'; he denes'5
the politicians and ignores the politics
of his office, trusting to the people to
re-elect  or  promote -him.    When  his
term expires the politicians are awakened; they have been attending.to his
business and theirs;  and the people—
those busy business men—satisfied with'
the good business man's conduct in office
are busy   They do not'go to the primaries; they stay away from the polls.   The
good business man is defeated, and returns to the business he   knows,   respected, but retired.    (Abram S. Hewitt,

Chicago's Sewerage System."
LONDON, October 17.—Alex J. Jones
of Chicago, who is here investigating
sewerage systems, will proceed to Paris
in a few ' days   and • continue'.his   re-
      searches there, so as to be able" to pre-
self.   He may say that he saved his self-' .sent scientific testimony when-the nor-
tion of St. Louis vs. Chicago, relative to
esteem and his good name, that he is a
merchant and'his term in office was a
side-show;   but his words   are   hollow
boastings.    Confession of failure hurts,
and what is the use to a community of
a political side-show?  4'Reform waves'
do no. good except .where they improve
and strengthen the machines ,they were
meant to demolish.   That they often do.
Tammany has been  helped   by  refoim
movements in New York   city;   never
harmed. A whipping at the polls teaches
a man like Croker,that, for example,
New   Yorkers   really   care   for   clean
streets.    Colonel  Waring's  administration taught the boss and the people that
clean streets were possible and pleasant;
so Mr.. Croker-was able to say to 'Big
Tom' Brennan:    'Here, Tom, you .won't
do as commissioner of street cleaning.
You will have .to be satisfied with  a'|
commissionershlp   of   charities.'     The
big Toms recognize this as good politics,
and Mr. Croker is in a position, without
hurting himself with the boys, to give
a, little better government and thus establish more soundly hjs machine;  _o£
the people say, 'Well, Tammany gives us
1 clean streets, anyhow.'"    ».' I >      .
Politics a Business
"Politics is a business/' starts J. Lincoln Steffens in an article in Alnslee's
Magazine.    "That's what's the   matter
with it!   That's what's the matter with
everything—art,     lite, m ure,     religion,
journalism, Jaw,   medicine—they're, all
business,  and  ajl—as   you  see   them.
Ivlake politics a sport, as.they do in England, or a profession, as they do in Ger-
njftpy, and we'll have—well, something
else i-Jian we have now, if we want it,
■vyhich is another question.    But don't
try to yreforn) politics with the banker,
the lawyer and?thp dry goods- merchant,
if pr'.these are business ipen, and there are
two .great hindrances to .heir ?achieve-
ment' of reform—one is that^they are
different from, but not much better than,
the politicians; the other is • that politics
is not in their line.   There are', exceptions
both ways.   Many politicians have gone
into business and' have done well (New
: York city has ex-mayor. Grant, John D.
Crimmins, and others) and a few business men have gone into politics and done
well (Mark" Hanna).    They haven't reformed their adopted trades,  however,
though they have sometimes reorganized
and developed them.
•. "The politician is a business man with
a. specialty.   When a busness man learns
the biisiness of politics, he is a politician? ' Th_.ro s not much reform left in
him' .What thg ppmmon, ordinary business man means, however,   who   never
fails to neglect' politics, ]§   that   some
Other business man should gj.y.e ixp his

How to Decrease „ Drunkenness
"Are southern^ nations less  addicted
to   alcoholism * than- northern?"    This
quest-on' gave rise to an 'exciting  and
acrid debate at1 a meeting-of,the Society
for the Study of Inebriety.' Dr. Reid of-
the editorial staff of The Lancet, of Lon-
jdon, England, started the debate thus:
"Teetotalers make more drunkards .to
redeem.   Wherever they succeed, in securing coercive legislation   against   al-
•coholism, they swell the tide of inebriety.
Among the   southern   nations   of' the
.world,  where alcohol  is found'as one
of the everyday beverages of the people,
excessive di inking and consequent druk-
enness are reduced to a minimum. London, Chicago, and New York,-which are
without  prohibition,   have   respectively
only 7, 13, and 23 drunkards'per 1000,
while Portland, Maine, the classic prohibition state, has forty-two.    I would
advise temperane'e enthusiasts to cease
their work and let law solve the question
of alcoholism.   Then eventually we' will
see diunkards eliminated and the human
family made immute from the disease
of drunkenness."
After an eager and contused struggle
for the floor, secretaiy Charles Smith
of the Kent County Temperance Federation, obtained lecognition.   He said:
"Dr. Reid's statements are preposterous. Caielully prepared statistics just
published hy tbe Board of Tiade show
that southern nations diink 5S per cent
moro than northern peoples. High«
.authorities assure us that southern Europe swims In wine, and hence heads towards a social decomposition and a
political impotence. England has free
access to alcohol and yet it is becoming
a land of topers. Dr. Reid's American
statistics aro not worth the paper on
which they aro writer*. He says that
Portland, Maine, has -13 drunkards per
1,000. Is tho mun ignorant, or would he
deceive us? lu Portland overy drunken
man is arrested; henco thoso figures.
The statistics of tho City of London and
its own magistrates agree that not one
drunkard in ten is ever arrested.?
the .sewerage system of the latter city,
comes up in   the  supreme   court.    Mr.
Jones told a representative of the .Associated Press today that his investigations satisfied him that the money spent
on Chicago's drainage canal had been
well expended. -The septic tank .system
for sewage treatment reported by a number of comparatively small cities in England, which is advocated by the opponents of the Chicago' system, Mr. Jones
considers? is well adapted to towns of
100,000   inhabitants,   but   impracticable
for^larger cities.   The perlin system of
sewage farms, -while sanitarily successful, (involves an expenditure three times
as great as that of Chicago.   The Parisian method .greatly'resembles  that  of
Chicago.        /   \

H. Geigerich, one of the pioneer merchants of the Ainsworth mining division, is in Nelson. Speaking in a general  way of the condition of business at  Ainsworth and Kaslo, he said times  were rather quiet; but the reason for  this was, in the main, due to the fact  that there were too many businless  houses for the amount of business 'offering. When" the different camps were  having their booms, business was good;  but now that the booms are over, and  the country is settling down to bedrock  conditions, some of the business houses  must of necessity-, be doing a smaller  amount of .business, and hence are making small, and. in some cases no profits.

The case of the Royal Bank: of Canada vs. John M'. 'Harris was disposed of  before Mr. Justice Irving yesterday and  resulted in a victory for the bank. It  was an action on the part of the bank  to recover the amount of a couple of  promissory notes signed by Harris. The  bank came into'possession of the notes  as security,' for ��� discount made upon a  note of a "man named Clarke. The total  amount of the notes,' together with interest, amounted'.to $957. The defense  to the action was that the notes represented a portion of a gambling debt.  They were given at the close of a big  gambling game in Sandon in November,  1897, during 'thei progress of which  John Harris? of "Sandon is said to have  been relieved1? oft, close upon $10,000 in  cash and Reco stock.. In the game there  were Clarke, Sam Arthur, a man named  Peterson, and;-another named Hank,  and it was'currently reported that they  made a special trip in to Sandon for the  privilege of- playing with Harris. After  th.

A crowded house house  greeted  the  production from II Trova'tore and Faust  by the members of the Nelson Operatic  Society at the opera house last evening,  and the members  of the  society  have  every reason to feel proud over the success which they scored.   After a select  overture the curtain rose upon a massive  prison scene in II Trovatore.   The most  of the work in this scene fell upon Mrs.  Melville Parry. * Her rendition was the  work of an artist and her high top flats  rang out with the clearness of a bell.  Mr. Lahore was also heard to good ad~  vantage from   behind   the   scene   in a  sweet and sympathetictenor voice.   The  concert part of the program opened with  a solo by Mr. Halt** of Spokane, who was  Well received.   The violin solo numbers  of Mr, Headley were also well received.  Mrs. IJ. Young made her debut as a soprano and acquitted herself creditably,  and the concert part closed  with two  very   enjoyable  cello   solos   by   Herr  Steiner.   Tbe garden scene from Faust  was thei heaviest' part of the society's  work and enjoyed by the large and appreciative audience   that  witnessed it  The honors went to the prima donnas-  Margaret, taken by Mrs Melville Parry,  who after her jewel song was the recipient of a very handsome boquet.   Mrs. M.  S. Dav/s as   Martha  acquitted   herself  well,   John Lahore, who has given up a  great deal of his time to the.work of the  society, sang the tenor role in a pleasing and artistic fashion,   Mr, Haltz had  the responsible role of Mephistopheles  and It may be remarked that Spokane is  to be congratulated upon having so fine  a baritone.
