for Trouble on the Atlantic Also
Canada's Position at to Reciprocity
Abolitlou of the Komling Privilege of
no I've ait Retaliation.
ClllCAoo, March 14. Krastus VTiman,
tbe well-known political economist and
financier, heml of the R. Q. Dun Mercan
tile agency if visiting friends in Chicago,
lie was Heen Sat unlay evening and spoke
Interestingly on the Retiring sea troubles.
Mr. Wiiiian said that be regarded Lord '
Salisbury' as a diplomat of tbe highest'
order. "The English premier's refusal of
the modus vivendi for tbe coining season,"
continued Mr. Wiman, "was no doubt de
signed to have its effect on the arbitrat
ors, to whom the matter is to li referred,
in that lie wishes to maintain the British
view of an open sea. This view a con
tinued modus vivendi might impair. It
is morally certain that tbe English gov
ernment will not yield this point.
Campaign Thunder Itadly Needed.
"It is under tremendous pressnre now
from the Canadian government, which
being Tory in complexion and strengthened
by the recent elections, is iu a mood to in
sist that Canadian sealers be protected
and given equal rights with Americans on
the high seas. Uesides, the coining con
test in England lietween the Tories and
Gladstone and the Liberals makes it in
cumbent that a diversion of Rome kind be
created to insure Tory success at the polls.
Xothing will so fire the Hritish heart with
enthusiasm as anything calculated to
maintain the fiction that llvitannia rules
the waves, and under such circumstances
it is not improbable thnt a vigorous for
eign policy will prevail during the coining
summer, iu which the peace of the world
may le threatened.
Trouble Also on the Atlantic.
"Actual hostilities are doubtful, bnt
many a war has sprung from less serious
causes and it is a fact that party exigen
cies have caused oue-ha'.f of England's
wars. While serious results may thus
impend ou the Pacific, there promises to
be trouble on the Atlantic also. For the
last four years a modus vivendi has len
granted the I'nited States by the Cauadian
parliament in regard to tbe extremely
valuable fisheries in the (iulf of St. Iaw
rence, by w hich, by the payment of merely
nominal tonnage duties, American vessels
have enjoyed all the hospitality denied
thetn by the treaty of ISIS. This conces
sion was made by Canada for the avowed
purpose of getting n reciprocity t reaty at
'YVoxbingtou for the natural products of
No Reciprocity o Moduft.
"This treaty has recently leen denied by
Blaine in tbe strongest terms, and now
there is no hope whatever of better trade
relations with Canada unless that coun
try is ready to discriminate against Great
Britain by the free admission of manufac
tures from the I'nited States. Therefore
the present modus vivendi on the Atlantic
Is not likely to be renewed, and the I'nited
States government, having by its frequent
payment to Canada of tonnage duties tac
itly admitted the correctness of Canada's
position on the interpretation of the terms
of the treaty of 1 sis, has placed itself in
an extremely unfortunate position.
Foot and Mouth Dispute in Kngland.
Washington-, March 14. The depart
ment of agriculture has received informa
tion of a serious outbreak of the foot and
mouth disease in Great Britain, and Sec
retary Kusk warns all stock importers
that there is danger of the disease reach
ing thi.-. country.
Killed the Conductor.

Unien Pacific road at Granville, Colo.,

was killed. The w reck was caused by a
runaway freight car colliding with a pas
senger train. None of the passengers was
THE HORROR IN BELGIUM.
Wiuiuu Tbinks it Would ISe a Very Itu.l
"It is too early to predict the policy of
the Canadian government on all questions.
but It is safe t say that there will be no
policy of yielding while Toryism prevails.
The threat of retaliation in the shape of
the abolition of the bonding privilege.
Vrbicb allows goods destined for Canada to
pa js through the United States without
duties, and vice versa, would lie a two-
edged weapon, far more hurtful to Chi
cago, Detroit, the Twin Cities, Boston aud
New England than to Canada.
W ill not Worry Canada.
"If this is the only retaliatory measure
Canada bas to fear, after suffering the ter
rible exclusion implied by the McKiuley
bill, it will have no effect on tbe popular
sentiment in Canada, except to solidify
the adhesion to British connection and to
strengthen the determination to keep in
dependent of tbe United States. Canada
bas the Canadian Southern, Canadian
Pacific and the Grand Trunk railways and
the gulf of St. Ijiwreuce, a great natural
highway, as channels for her commerce
and in no way has to rely on tbe United
States. Chicago would be the great suf
ferer in case of retaliation of tbe above
nature and more harm would be done her
tbau would fall to all Canada.
Not Dependent on I n a l'.it.
"It is a mistake to suppose that Canada,
larger than the Lmted States and rich in
all natural resources, is dependent on the
United States for existence. 1 here is no
real annexation sentiment iu Canada, and
none that can for a quarter of a century
take any tangible shape in practical pol
itics. On the other baud, all present con
ditions easily suggest real antagonism be
tween the two countries."

A Dog Story That May lie Said to Take

ST. MAUVS, O., March 14. Charles Bar
ber, who lives near this city, lost a valu
able hound in a remarkable manner. Mrs,
Baber bad cnt a lot of biscuits out of
dough and placed tbem near the store to
rise. Her household duties called her
away, and when she returned she found
tbe dog had eaten the biscuits. The mis

Barber tried to relieve him, but tbe leaven

The Total Death Koll 21. Women In the
Bi:rsf-Ei.s, March 14. The men at work
in the A nderleus colliery are at work at
the risk of their lives, tiie mine being in
flames. But the total list of dead has been
made u;, and it is 21.1. Of these it is esti
mated that 170 were scorched to death by
the flame resulting from the explosion.
The government has taken prompt action
to relieve so far as possible the suffering
entailed by tbe sudden and appalling ca
tastrophe. The misister of public works
has ordered the distribution of relief, and
the worl is now being carried on.
W ill Have One Good Kfl'ect.
The awful calamity in Belgium has
called general attention to the subject of
female labor in the coal mines of that
country. The employers prefer women as
miners b fause t hey are more docile and
work for somewhat lower wages than t ha
men. Tbe women receive one franc and a
half for twelve hours' work in some of the
Belgian collieries. They are mostly middle-aged
women, but females are found in
the coal i it as young as 14 and as old as
60 years of aire. Some of the married
women have been known to take their
babies strapped to their backs down into
the pit and lay the little ones near them
while thev are engaged in dicgiug coal.
t'nitrrHMl Sulti-age a Krniedy.
This is nie of the evils that Belgian
Workingnien want to see reformed. They
claim tha-., if the- bad universal suffrage,
the Belg an parliament would not be
merely representative of the upper and
middle c asses, but would legislate also
for the benefit of the toilers, who are now
little better than serfs. It is said that
some colli -ry owners refuse to employ a
miner in Belgium unless be is able to
bring one or more members of his family
into the p t with him.
FOUND AN ANCIENT BONANZA.
The Long-Lost Tinimruenrle silver Iine
S.VX Antonio, Tex., March 14. A tele
gram from Heruiosillo, Mex., says: The
long-song! t-for silver mine of Tumaca
corie bas -teen discovered, the fortuna'.e
prospector being James 1'isher. It is lo
cated i-bout twelve miles west of'i'iibie,
in tbe state of Sonora. This famous mine
was discov -red originally by the Jesuit
fathers, vl o worked it for many years.
The Apuch- Indians finally drove out and
massacred .be pioneers.
Show I Yonr Metal, Mr. I'ishcr.
The latt T, rather than leave t heir
wealth to t leir persecutors, obliterate ! al
traces of tbe mine, which lias been
searched fo-ever since by persons who had
beard the s ory handed down by the Jesuit
fathers. Mr. 1'isher slates that be lias
abundant evidence in the nature of old
workings to support bis claim of having
without qu -st ion discovered t he original
Tumacacorie bonanza mine.

Mr. D.-ibel allinns that his signature to

Loveliest Woman in Paris" How the
Ciay Capital Received the Newt.
Xew Youk, March 14. Mine. Clemen
ceau, wife of the famous French politician,
is in America awaiting to hear officially
the result of her application for a divorce
from her husband. She is visiting at the
home of her old friend and teacher. Miss
Catherine Aiken, of Stamford, Conn. A
reporter'saw her Jt here Sunday. A cable
gram announced on Saturday that M.
George Clemeuceau, the French deputy,
the leader of the extreme left (tbe Radical
party in the French chamber) and the
most prominent man in France today, had
been divorced by bis American wife.
The F.mpir too Hot for him.
Clenu nceau came to America in lsiji, as
his hatred for the empire made it neces
sary. He tried to practice medicine in
New York but found no patients, and at
last secured a place as tutor in French
at Miss Allen's school at Stamford, Conn.
One of his pupils there was Miss Mary K.
Plummer, who is described as a petite
girl with a lovely face, wonderful brown
eyes and daintly rounded figure. No one
In the school was so loved as she, no one

so thoroughly natural. She was not yet

Married by Mayor Oakey Hall.
She was adopted by a rich uncle and came
east with her mother. She had been sent
to Miss Aiken's school to complete her
education. Clemenceau fell in love with
her at once, and after she left school and
was living with her uncle in New York he
declared bis passion, and in spite of her
uncle's objections they were married by
Mayor Oakey Hall in istlit. They went at
once to France, and there Clemenceau
plunged into that turmoil of politics where
be gained renown and great power.
The Gallant Made No Impression.
An intimate friend of Mrs. Clemenceau
said Saturday: -She was called tbe love
liest woman in Paris, and the charm was
as much in her manner as iu he r face and
perfect form. It was said that mi woman
iu the capital was as graceful as she. It
was not long before she had the French
gallants at her feet. They paid her their
prettiest compliments aud were amazed to
find that they made no impression. The
purity of ht r na: ure was her shield. One
woman said of Iter once 'that she never

Mine. Clemenceau was always perfectly
devoted to her husband, and three chil
dren came to t hem. But the lovely wife
and children seemed to have lost their hold
cpon the brilliant politician. Then came
ugly rumors about M. Clemenceau. Gay
Paris laughed. It was so droll that tbe
good deputy, who bad led such a strait
laced life and who bad always talked
so much about principle iu the home life,
should do as other men do.
Laughed About the Wife, Ton.
And they laughed about the wife, too,
saying that she was so innocent that she
would not know what to do. But at last
the American woman could stand it no
longer. She applied for a divorce. The
application was made secretly that it
miyht not injure her husband. And when
everything bad been done that she could
do Mine. Clemenceau made up her mind
to quit Paris.

A. J. Blethen, tbe Briar Bluff coal op
orator, has locked out his miners at that
place. There was apptrently(not much of
a difficulty as yet between the miners
and their employer, but a bad feeling
seemed to be growing, and in order to
prevent a strike, which he felt would be
the outcome, Mr. Blethen closed tbe
mines. Tbe men were receiving 55 cents
per ton under the gross weight system,
but were of tbe opinion that they should
receive irore, which feeling was occasion
ed by the good prices paid at Cable. As
a result of the lockout 7d men are thrown
out of emp'oyment with little prospects
of Te'urning to work, as Mr Blethen
states that it is mere profitable to allow
the roal to remain in the ground than to
mine it at tbe prices paid at other mines
