USED IN UPRISING
Outbreak In St Pierre De
FACTION FOR ANNEXATION
.Riotous Atsombly Marohos to Ameri
can Consulate and Choors United
States Question of Roligieus In
struotion In Schools Has Exeitod tho
Population British Gunboat Sent,
Franco Has No Warship Nearsr Than
St. Pierre, N. F., Nov. 18.-The pop
ular revolt against the government of
this French Colony increases in
strength every hour, and many are
advocating annexation by the United
States. The police force is powerless
to restore order.
A most significant incident wss the
carrying of the American flag at the
head of a marching host of more than
1,000 men, who visited the government
house and the American consulate and
cheered the United States.
The manifestation on the part of the
populace is due to the school question.
The people of St. Pierre demand free
schools in which religious instruction
Two schoolmasters charged with con
ducting free schools were convicted
and fined $200 each, aud the schools
This inflamed the population, which
assembled on the streets and violently
denounced the French government.
British Warship Sent to St. Pierre.
St. John's, X. F., Nov. 18. Dispatch
es from St. Tierre state that the sit
uation there Is serious.
The British warship Brilliant, now
in St. John's harbor, has been direct
ed to proceed to the French town.
France has no warship nearer St
Pierre than the West Indies.
St. Pierre dispatches state that a
crowd that marched to the govern
ment house numbered 1.000 and that
it also visited the American consulate
and cheered the United States.
It is believed here that should the
French government refuse to recon
sider its action in regard to the schools
the annexation party at St. Pierre will
endeavor to induce the United States
to purchase the colony.
Faction Favora Annexation.
The action of the St. Pierre popu
lace in displaying the American flag
may or may not iudicate an organized
attempt to bring about the annexation
of the colony to the United States;
An element in St. Pierre has long
favored a transfer of the colony to the
United States, but there is no reason
to believe that France would part
with the islands.
The laws which are objectionable to
the colonists are those which the
French government adopted when re
lations with the Roman Catholic
church were severed.
NEW CABLE FOR CANADA.
