It Is an open secret that what Is known as "pet ticoat Influence" has been far too strong at the War Office ever sines the Duk* of Cambridge resigned and the present com mander in chief has not escaped It, Therp are many people who are Inclined to ap plaud the speech of H.

War Office reforms Into his own bands' there might be great reform, at the War Office. • "I am told," says the Informant, tt tia.t ever since General Buller refused to cor rect his Spion Kop dispatches he has been subjected to the bitter hostility ot Lad/ Roberts, who used every eftort to force her husband to demand his recall. Within the last few days her antipathy has fotmtl fresh vent owing' to this Westminster speech. It is said she compelled 'Bobs* to go to the War Office and demand oZ Bro'drick that he should issue an order for General Butler's resignation. "Such an order was Issued, but rili Buller replied with a flat refusal to resign. Then Lord Roberts and Mr. Brod rick put their heads together and waited for the King's return to London to lay before his Majesty the alternative of Buller's dismissal or their resignation. -"It was by n:> means a pleasant inter view. At first the King refused point blank to countenance any such drastic proceedings. He defended Buller right and left and declared that such a provo cation as anonymous attacks were no warrant for such an explosion on the part of a bluff old soldier, but Lord Roberta and Mr. Brodrick were equally stubborn.

PEKING, Oct. 23.— There i3 strong oppo sition among conservative Chinese officials to Wu Ting Fang, Chinese Minister at Washington, retaining a foreign mission. Those who take this view consider that hi» popularity abroad is a proof that he is not sufficiently loyal to the interests of China. It is probable that he will be recalled and given a position on the new Board of Foreign Affairs, where, his linguistic and legal attainments may be utilized under the eye of the Government.

Congressman "Woods also promised to prepare a mineral lands bill, copying it from the old bill that failed. He also forcibly urged that tho convention should -adopt resolutions con cerning the Chinese exclusion act that the California delegation in Congress might have behind them the moral effect of the action ol the California miners. Congressman Coombs spoke of the Yuba dam and other matters. He said that th; Congressional delegation should give the Yuba works all the support they could in Congress. Congressman Coombs also spoke concerning the exclusion of Chinese from the United States., He said that r. was whispered 'about in the East that the farmers and miners of California wanted more Chinese laborers to develop their lands and mines and that rallroa-1 builders also wanted the Chinese. He dui not think that representatives of these in terests in California would sit silent un der these imputations. He was largely acquainted with the farmers and thought that he knew their wishes concerning- the exclusion of the Chinese: - If there was not enough labor in Cali fornia to Immediately develop its re sources it was better to let them He in abeyance • until • they could be developed by Americans.

OHIOANS HEAR FROM KILBOURNE The text of the resolutions adopted by the convention that dealt with topics of the greatest general interest is as follows: lows: Resolved. That in the Judgment of this as sociation, the mining industry of this country with its output of raw material amounting in 1900 to the sum of $1,070,108,883 in value, its tremendous significance to the industrial pros perity of the nation, and its still more splen did promise for the future, warrants and de T mands the governmental protection and assist ance that can be adequately extended only through a cabinet department of the executive branch of the Government. We therefore hear tily indorse the now national demand for \u25a0 a Cabinet Department of Mines and Mining. Resolved, That the committee on legislation be requested to prepare a bill embodying the Important Resolutions. Whereas, We cannot but look forward with dismay and alarm to .that untoward event which shall precipitate upon our shores the alien hordes of Asia without let or hindrance; therefore, be it Resolved, That we hereby request our dele gation in Congress to endeavor to procure the enactment of another Chinese exclusion act. and that wo further hereby request our said delegation in the prosecution of their efforts in this behalf to exercise the greatest diligence and vigilance. Whereas, The Chinese * civilization In our midst has proven to be wholly alien to ours and to our Institutions, and the presence of the Chinese among us has been shown to be a blight and a curse upon our people; and Whereas, The Chinese race has been proven to be wholly unasslmilable with the Caucasian; and The enactment of a new Chinese restric tion law \u25a0was advocated. The administra tion of the State Mining Bureau under Lewis B. Aubury was approved and the Legislature was asked to make a liberal appropriation for the support of the bureau. Land Commissioner Binger Her mann was commended anew for suspend ing agricultural entry upon California lands supposed to be petroleum-bearing. Thanks were voted to the merchants, manufacturers and business men of San Francisco for financial support given to the association and also to the press of San Francisco and of the mining counties of the State for aid to the association and to the mining industry of California. The resolutions that were submitted by the committee on resolutions, of which "W. C. Ralston was the chairman, were really an epitome of the history of the important doings of the convention during the week. The reports of all committees, with the recommendations made therein, were sent to the committee on resolutions after they had been read to the convention and the last named committee embodied the sug gestions that met with the favor of the convention in their final report. The text of the resolution reported by the committee and finally adopted by the convention concerning the Chinese exclu sion act is as follows: \u25a0Whereas, The Chinese exclusion act, so call ed, is about to expire; and Whereas, Upon Its expiration, unless Congress shall enact another law of similar-purview, this country, and particularly the Pacific States and Territories, will at once be flooded with Chi nese; and the Immediate purposes of the as sociation vrore Bet forth in no uncertain terms and by electing officers of the next year. Tho officers elected are: President, E. C. Voorheis of Amador County: first vice president, Frederick Zeitler of Ne vada County; second vice president, Lewis E. Aubury of Los Angeles; third vice president, M. E. Dittmar of Shasta Coun ty; secretary, E. H. Benjamin of San Francisco; treasurer, S. J. Hendy of San Francisco. They constituted the old board of officers and were re-elected, with the addition of M. E. Dittmar, .who occu pies the efflce of third vice president, which was created by amendment of the by-laws cf the association, so that the northern counties, about to form a Miners' Association of Northern California, might receive proper recognition in the State body. The more important aims of the asso ciation that were mentioned in the reso lutions that were adopted are easily sum marised. The demand for a national. De partment of Mines and Mining was re newed. A national law was asked for to provide for the location of 160 acres of petroleum-bearing land as a placer claim and to give the locator an opportunity to make technical discovery of mineral as a precedent for location. A national law was also asked for to throw the burden of proof in a contest in the United States Land Office, between a scripper and miner, upon the scripper. The restrain ing works for the Yuba River were "ap proved and additional restraining works upon the tributaries of the f Sacramento and San Joaquin rivers were advocated to enable miners to provide for the resump tion of hydraulic mining in all parts of the State adapted thereto. Once more the passage of the mineral lands bill was urged and it was voted to send a representative of the mining inter ests of California to Washington in that connection if the executive committee should approve. The executive committee was instructed to defend a case properly brought to test the Caminetti law. Bring ing persons before the Federal Grand Jury, who falsely make non-mineral af fidavits for the purpose of fraudulently procuring title to mineral lands, was de clared a purpose of the association. A na tional forest patrol, reserving from sale all public forests and the enaptment of State penal laws to protect forests from tires were strongly advocated. The amendment of the Federal statutes to pre vent the prolonged holding of mining claims without the performance of annual assessment work w4s also favored. Chinese Get Attention.
