DEATH IN A TL'NNEL. Explonlon of Giant Poivdor Instantly Two Men and Six Oth- ers. Col., Got. terrible explosion occurred at the Ivanhoe-Busk tunnel on thf5 Midland road, ton miles west of here, Tuesday morninp One of the workmen entered the tunnel with a box of giant powder, removed one of the sticks and accidentally knocked it acrainst the wall. It exploded, killing bim instantly and frightfully mangling his body. The force of the explosion caussd the entire box of powder to explode with terrific force, killing- a man who was working near by and badly injuring eight others, six of whom will die. It is impossible at present to get a list of the gle to despoil the people. With a few honorable killed and iniured. exceptions, the entire public service is domor allzefl. In the Inaugural address delivered to you last January you were advised that "in justice to the people of that city as well as In furtherance of sound political principles, you shosld eareful- Ij consider, toature and formulate a charter trhich would give them an opportunity to man- age theirown affairs through ctiottn by iKemtelkfS."

The only improTB- ment In its construction was a Uuit the members, although originally appointed by ibe Governor, should "be subsequently'elected by the people. This advantage was offset iy the failure to empower the Governor to remove bis appointees should they prove to be ineffi- cient or dishonest- A change for the worse was a provision that tnree members Instead ot four :ould transact busme'ss, thus enabling thoxt unite and control public affairs. present board entered upon its duties under favorable auspices Although, It soon subjected to criticism (much of it unjust) for its manage- merit of the waterworks, it was. in the a tell meaning, and honestly conducted body Later, however, it retrocradad rapidly.

The Mulmorby, Captain Olben, sailed from Quebec, Oc- tober 1, for Groenock, with a cargo ot square timber.

A er was spoken Wednesday, which lay by thorn and supplied them with food and other necessities. At this time the ves- sel was a helpless wreck. Sho drifted about in this condition until Sunday, she struck a ledge near Roy's Isl- and. Then Captain Olsen, the pilot and fifteen o' tho crow started in tho ship's longboat to reach shore, but the surf was so violent and auch was the awful force of the vndertow that only one man, tho pilot, succeeded in reaching shore; all th" others wore drowned. The Urriblo caUmity was seen by crowds of ,'plp on horo, who made de- termined to launch boats, but the sea was so angry th it no bo.it could livo in it.

Offlvlali In ThU Opinion by the United Court. TVAsmxoTOX, Oct regard to dispatches from London assorting that Spain can not negotiate a reciprocity treaty with the United States for tho Cuban trade without violating the "fa- vored nation" clause in her existing treaties with other nations, it is said at tho Department of State that this point was discussed and finally decided in 1SS4, when Minister Foster negotiated a reci- procity treaty on the same basis that is now proposed, and is now revived, not by Spain, it is stated, but by the com- mercial interests of Great Britain for an obvious purpose. State Department officials 9ay that the United States also has the "favored na- tion" clause in moat of her commercial treaties, but this will not embarrass tho Government in tho negotiation of re- ciprocity treaties or arrangements with other nations, because the Department of State has uniformly held, from the time of Joflerson as Secretary of State to Mr. Blaine, that tho favored nation clause only applies whore privileges are (ranted freely and without considera- :ion; but wherever a special consider- ation is made tho condition of a favored rrant or received, the farored nation clause does not apply. This interpreta- tion has brien recently sustained by tbe Supreme Court of tho United Statei in its opinion in tho ease of Bartram vs. Robertson. This case arose under tho Hawaiian reciprocity treaty.- It was claimed that and molasses imported from the island of St Croix, a colony of Den- should be admitted free of duty under the favored nation clause of a treaty between tho United States and Denmark, because like articles were admitted from the Hawaiian Islands. Tbo Supreme Court rejected the claim, Stating that the "treaty with Denmark does not bind the United States to ox- tend to that country, without compensa- tion, privileges which they bavo con- ceded to the Hawaiian Islands In ex- change for valuable concessions."

What our Customers Say:

"It is amazing how easy and exciting it is to access all of this information! I found hundreds of articles about my relatives from Germany! Well worth the subscription!" - Michael S.
