A Press Censorship Has Baen
THE SILENCE IS . OMINOUS
Gathering of m Big Squadron Prepara
tions for War In Progress All Over
London, Nov. 2. The Daily Mail
this morning publishes no news regard
ing ' England's war preparations, ex
plaining that silence is due to a letter
from the war office, asking it not to
publish "anything whioh might be
useful to a possible enemy." The
Daily Mail confiims the reports of un
exampled aotivity at the French dock
yards, notably at Toulon, where the
coast ports have been experimenting
with melinite shells against an old
British Naval Preparation!.
London, Nov. 2. There was an un
expectedly gloomy feeling this morning
on the stook exohange and the Paris
bourse, both markets being influenced,
it is inferred, from the aggressive tone
of some of the French papers. Besides
this something extraordinary seems to
have happened, and it looks as if a
crisis was approaching.
The British naval preparations are
being pushed with great activity. The
British emergency squadron is gathei
ing at Devon port, ; with all possible
speed, and seven battle-ships and one
oruiser so far have been designated to
join the squadron. The officers and
sailors , have been hurriedly recalled
from leave of absence, several battle
ships and cruisers at Portsmouth are
taking full crews on board, and other
warlike preparations are being made.
A number of signalmen, now on duty
with the Birtish channel squadron,
whioh arrived at Gibraltar this morn
ing, have been ordered home for serv
ice. . :).'
A sensation was caused by the arrest
of a supposed Russian spy at a fort near
Harwich. The man was already under
surveilance, and went to the redoubt,
where he tried to obtain some informa
tion from the sentry regarding the
fortifications. He was arrested, and
inquiries are being made regarding his
. It was also asserted today that officers
of the volunteers had received oi tiers
to prepare for immediate mobilization,
and it was stated that the different
army corps had been informed as to the
ports on the southern and western
coasts to which they have been al
Thre Pall Mall Gazette this aftornoon
says: "England has been and even
now is so near war that the govern
ment has carried its preparations to
the farthest limit of the preparatory
stage. It has been arranged to call out
the reserves and militia and to mobilize
the volunteers simultaneously and to
form large camps at various important
railroad junotions where rolling stock
and locomotives will be concentrated.
Activity at Esquimau.
Victoria, B. C, Nov. 2. The depart
ure of her majesty's ship Amphion
Sunday for the Society islands, the
French colony in the South seas, did
not end the aotivity at the Esquimau
naval station. As - soon as she
left the wharf at the dook yard,
the dock-yard crew was detailed to get
the drydook in readiness for the recep
tion of her majesty's ship Leander.
She, too, is to go on a long voyage, oi
at least be in readiness for any duty
that she may be called upon to perform..
The most significant feature outsid
the departure of the Amphion, how.
ever, is the activity on her majesty'i
ship Imperieuse. Admiral Palliser's
flagship. Sunday a large number of
men were given shore leave, a very
unusual thing on Sundays, and this
morning she commenced coaling. It is
understood that she goes out under
sealed orders on Thursday, but it is not
likely that she will follow the Amphion,
as that would leave Esquimau with a
small fleet, the Leander, Icarus, two
torpedo-boat destroyers and two torpedo
boats. The White liners.
Vancouver, B. C, Nov. 2. An un
confirmed report says the Canadian
Pacific Railway Company has received
notification from the British admiralty
that the three big Empress liners may
be required at any moment, to be trans
formed into auxiliary cruisers. Gune
and othei equipments lie at Hong Kong
and Esquimalt. '
One vessel is now in Vancouver har
bor, oi Yokohama. If trouble with
France assumes its worst aspect, the
two Empresses would be ready imme

St. Paul, Nov. 2. A Winnipeg
special to the Dispatch says a speoial
naval train was derailed east of Rat
Portage, this morping, by a broken
rail. The tender, two baggage and
three colonist oars went over an em
bankment 10 feet high. Frank Fleck
ney and William Miller, boys from the
training-ship Agincourt, of Chatham,
England, were killed. - Samuel Harri
son, stoker of the Edinburg, and Thomai
Burns, a seaman, were injured.
Cnprecedented In Mining History of
Country Excitement at Fever Heat.
Spokane, Nov. 2. A telephone mes
sage from Republic, on the north half
of the Colville reservation,' says the
miners in the Republic mine have now
crosscut 24 feet of ore in the big ledge
on the 430-foot level, and the drills
are still in ore. The news of the strike
has spread to the surrounding mining
districts, and the exoitement is intense.
Conservative mining men say that such
an ore ohute with suoh values ($300 per
ton) is unprecedented in the mining
history of the continent. The great
chute has now been proved for a depth
of 430 feet, and a length of 400 feet
It is nowhere less than Ave feet wide,
and the width runs as high 25 feet.
Contrary to the general rule in gold
mining, the ledge is xiohest at its
widest points. I '
The mine is 80 miles from a rail
road, and the ore is freighted that dis
tance over a mountain road and ship
ped to a Puget sound smelter. In addi
tion to these limited shipments, the
company is treating ore at its mill on
the ground with the electro-oyanide
process. Its reciepts from ore ship
ments and mill runs are averaging
$4,000 per day, and these will be
greatly increased when the machinery
is installed for the enlarged mill.
Enough ore is now blocked out to keep
the mill running for several years.
Other big mines in the camp are the
Mountain Lion, owned chiefly in Port
land; the San Poil and the Jim Blaine,
owned in Spokane.
' Buying orders for Republic stocks
were telegeaphed today from many of
the surrounding towns. It is hard to
quote prioes on the Republio stook
Before the recent big strike it was
selling freely at $2 per share, but now
there is not a share in sight, and hold
ers are talking $8 per share.
In running the tunnel which hae
just tapped the ledge in the lower
workings the miners -have broken all
records. They cut 400 feet in 29 days.
The country rock is porphyry.
INDIAN REPORTS IN.
Some Encouraging; . Others Indicate
' That Lo Is Progressing Backward.
Washington, Nov. 2. A majority oi
the annual reports of Indian agents to
the commissioners of Indian affairs are
of an encouraging nature,' and indicate
progress generally along civilized lines.
Some of the reports, however, are not
so gratifying, and make some surpris
ing statements. Unusual in an annual
report is the following arraignment in
the report of E. M. Yerian. in charge
of the Lemhi Indians in Idaho. He
says: . '
"They are addicted . to gambling,
horse-racing and dancing, and the in
fluence of the so-called medicine man
operates to the disadvantage of the
tribe, fheir real advancement has not
jeen what it should or what it was
possible to have been under the cir
jumstances. In the agent's annual re
port for 1882, on the Lehmi reserva
tion, I find 29 Indian families engaged
in farming; 15 years after I can report
but 41 following agricultural pursuits,
an inorease of 12, not one convert a
year." ' ' f
Agent Fuller, , of the Blackfoot
agenoy,' Montana, referring to the
opening of the ceded portion under the
mineral land laws last April, says the
prospecting has been practically fruit
less, and predicts the abandonment ol

A Settled Fact That the Is
lands Will Be Taken.
NOT ONE BUT ALL OF THEM
Debt May Be Assumed If Spain Re
fuses, Hostilities Will Be Resumed
and We Will Seize the Archipelago.
Paris, Nov. 1. While the Spanish
And American peace commissioners
now stand on the threshold of the
Philippine question, it seems probable,
in the light of this hour, that the
United States will take over the en
tire archipelago. -During
the foui days just passed,
those in touch with, though possibly
not in the confidence of the coram is
Bioners have felt the concentration of
tendencies toward the standpoint in
dicated as likely to be occupied by the
United States commissioners at Tues
day's session of the two commissions.
In 1897 Spain issued, by royal decree,
bonds in the sum of $40,000,000, to
which were pledged the revenues of the
Philippines, and to which tbe Spanish
national guarantee was added. From
these $40,000,000 of obligations, Spain
realized ,$36,000,000 in cash. These
$40,000,000 represent the Philippine
debt7whioh is entirely outside of the
$500,000,000 of the so-called Philippine
and Spanish debt.
The conditions also differ, the Philip
pine debt having been created by royal
deoree because the archipelago was not
a parliamentary oolony, while the so-
oalled Cuban debt was created by law.
The difference raises the question of
the non-responsibility of the Philip
pines when removed from the sovereign
ty under which its resources were
pledged. : '
Should the United States absorb the
Philippines, none but officials yet know
whether they will assume a part or all
of this debt, or more than the Philip
pine debt. Tbe Americans have de
clined to assume the Cuban debt be
cause Cuba is not theirs; but in depos
ing Spain in the Philippines, the Amer
icans acquire the territory, and it Is
believed there will be some finanoial
assumption by the United States.
At tbis point arises the question of
bow much financial relief might com
pensate Spain for her loss of the Phil
ippines. Some well-informed persons
believe that PremierrSagasta has deter
mined to be rid of the Philipines, and
would direct his commission to sign a
treaty by which the United States
should take the islands and assume
$40,000,000 of debt. This proposition
finds support in the Parisian press,
which today declares that resistance is
impossible, .and that Spain , should
abandon the aroliipelago. .
Spain Will Resist.
Paris, Nov. 1. There was a strong
impression, which has been growing
here recently, that tbe Spanish, upon
reoeiving definite assurances of the
Amerioan determination to take the
entire Philippine group, would quit
the conference, but this view was modi
fied by the attitude of the Spanish
newspapers whioh arrived here today.
(These are found to have wheeled into
line with the Epoca of October 27,
whioh demanded that the Spanish
commissioners should sign a treaty in
Paris, no matter how onerous the con
ditions imposed by the' Americans.
Nevertheless, " despite this attitude
of the Madrid prees, and, despite the
statement given Friday last to the press
oorrespondentt by the Spanish commis
sioner, who denied that the Spaniards
had any intention of withdrawing, the
Americans here will not be surprised
if one or more of the Spanish commis
sioners resign and practically close the
negotiations. This feeling is based
upon the faot that Senor Rios early last
week would have resigned, if his so
doing would not have imperiled the
Sagasta ministry; and the reasoning is
that, if, while pressing the Cuban debt,
whioh is not mentioned in the protoool,
Senor Rios was inclined to resign, ho
might, in the open field of contention
as to the Philippines, feel that resigna
tions would help Senor Sagasta, on the
ground that the demand of the United
States for the entire Philippine' group
would be extortionate.
It is believed here tonight, on the
eve of taking up the . main question,
that the Spanish commissioners are not
likely to acquiesce here in any treaty
that the Americans would sign.
Cure for Hog Cholera.
"Washington, Oct.. 31. During the
past two years the department of agri
culture has conducted a series of experi
ments in the use of a serum as a rem
edy for hogs affected by cholera or
swine plague. The eexpriments were
oonduoted by Dr. D. E. Salmon, ohief
of tbe bureau of animal industry, and
the results were eminently satisfactory,
proving that the disease can be success
fully treated, easily and inexpensively.
This year tbe experiments have' been
extnesive and far-reaching. The
bureau treated 922 hogs. Of these, 170
died, the number saved being 81 out of
every 100. The loss was only 19 per
cent, i ' . - ' - '
