the orders of the premier.
Ad incident yesterday evening at Saint-
Meen, eighteen mllea from Brest, shows the
spirit of tha peasantry. Two newspaper
men of Brest drove there In an automobile

The population of Landerneau, twelve

from Mou that the Canadian Pacifio
railway had. At the requeat ot the Cana
dian ministers now In London, offered to es
tablish and work a weekly fast service be-
ween Quebec and Liverpool in the sum
mer and between Halifax and Liverpool In
the winter, with a good freight service, is
causing considerable etlr In England, where
It la hailed with delight aa being an offset
to J. Plerpont Morgan'a shipping combine.
The evening papers have flaming placards
reading: "English Combination to Fight
the American Trust," etc. The officials ot
the Canadian Pacific railroad here deny
that they have any auch Intention, but
they as well aa othera believe that the
long discussed Canadian fast service Is
nally approaching realization.
The chief Indication of this Is the fact
that the offer waa made by the Canadian
Pacific railroad at the Instant. of the
Canadian ministers now here and that they
were fully aware of the conditions the im
perial government Is prepared to accede to.
Lord Strathcona and Mount Royal,' the
Canadian high commissioner, aald in an In
Whilo I am unable to add tn tha In
formation already printed, the terms seem
reasonable and probable. The members of
the Dominion government eome years ao
were authorised tv the Canadian Parlia
ment to offer a subsidy of 150.000 for thla
purpoae. Bo rar as 1 know thla offer haa
not been Increased. The reported subsidy
of 280,000 shows an advance over the
original offer, but it baa always been un
derstood tnat ureat Hrltaln would supple
ment Canada's offer, though I am not say
ing to what extent.
Canadian Pacific railroad directors con
firmed to a representative of the Asso
ciated Press every particular of the Cana
dian Pacific's offer to build and operate
a subsidised line, and both he and othera
lntereated were confident that the project
would be accomplished.
The chief requirements of the Imperial
government will be that the steamera shall
become auxiliary crulserc, the same
the Canadian Pacific railroad's Empress
(Pacific) liners. The principal points on
which the Canadian government will In
alst relate to refrigerating planta, apeed
and cargo capacity. It la admitted on

outcome of the formation of the American

says: "Naturally a suc-aioy win oe ex

the leaat difficulty In financing the acheme.
Apart from the etimulua It cannot fall to
give to Anglo-Canadian business. It will be
most helpful In perfecting all ths British
lines of communication with the tar eaat.
The Pall Mall Gazette aeea In the Cana
dian Pacific railroad proposal a guaranty
against the Atlantic becoming "strictly a
preserve of the American shipping trust
and adds: "It waa only becauae the At
lantic trust had command of the railways
of the United Statea that they could hope

They did not expect competition irom

LONDON, July 25. The whole aesslon of
the colonial conference today waa devoted
to the discussion of Imperial defense. An
Interesting proposal waa submitted by
Richard J. Beddon, prealdent ot New Zea
land, looking to the establishment in each
colony of a military reserve selected from
the local forces of the colony. The matter
waa thoroughly canvassed, but no action
The war aecretary, Mr. Brodrlck, It la
understood, submitted certain plana of hla

by tha varloua delegates, who will there
after acquaint the Imperial authorities
with the military reaourcea and require
menta of their reapectlve colonies.
The representative of the War offlce are
aald to have been disappointed at the lack
of enthusiasm shown for the scheme of
Imperial defense. Mr. Seddon's support ot
the Idea waa nullified by Canada and Aus
tralia atandlng aloof, Sir Wilfrid Lauiier
and Edmund Barton, respectively prime
ministers of tha Dominion aad the Aus

they had no Intention to ask their parlia

of our people, to raise your voice In behalf
of these Catholic mlsslonera, the friars of

Resolved, That we energetically nrotest
aa-ainst the concerted effort which Is being
made to defame and to vllllfy the friars of
the Philippine Islands and to alienate from
them the love and reverence or a people
whom they have ransomed rrom ignorance
Resolved. That we. deolorlng the seemlna
disposition of our government to discredit
the services of the friars In tha Philip
pines, do regard any hindrance to tha
legitimate exercise of their labors as- a
serious menace to the civil and moral well-
being of the people of these Islands and
unwarranted urecedent fraught with nerll
to the Catholic church in the United States,
a grave violation of the treaty of Parla and
a ratal departure rrom the time-honored
American principle of separation of church
Resolved. That we protest artlnst the
general condemnation of the friars for
what may have been the errors of In
dividual members of their body, and de
mand for them that same measure of jus
tice and protection which Is so truly ac
corded all other persons and corporations

Resolved. That we. sensible of the un-
morlted obloquy heaped upon the friars In
the Philippine Islands by roul slanders
emanating from misguided friends and
treacherous foes, do proffer sympathy to
our suffering brethren and encourage them
to conrrae in me nope mat our govern

PENDER, July 25. (Special.) The
Omaha Indiana are waking up In earnest to

always kept up a eemblance ot their tribal
organization and whenever the lntereata ot

take action. In purauance of thia custom

Whereaa, or mere than ten years a sys

of which our said rights have been disre

our full rights and benefits of our lands,
although laws and rules are made for our

Fleetlns; Jeffries Lands
RINGSIDE, SAN FRANCISCO, July 25.
After fighting a battle ot eight rounds that
waa fraught with brilliant and courageoua
work, Robert Fltzstmmona tonight for
feited bis last claim upon the heavyweight
championship. He wss knocked to th
floor by Jamea Jeffries and counted out
after he bad so badly punished the cham
pion that it waa a foregone conclusion
among the spectators that the Cornlshman
muat win. Bleeding from a number ot
gashe. in the face, apparently weakening
and clearly unable to cope with Fltzalin
mona superior skill, Jeffrie delivered two
lucky punchea as Fltzslmmona paused tn
hi fighting to speak to blm and turned
the tide. The battle waa brief but note
worthy and will llvn in pugilistic history.
Fltzslmmons tried once to rise from the
mat, but eank down again In hslplraanesa
and heard himself counted out, where but
a moment before he bad apparently all
the better of 11.
"I will never fight again," said the bat
tle-scarred veteran of the ring when he
had sufficiently recovered to talk. "The
fight waa won fairly and to the best man
belonga the laurel."
You are the most dangerous man
alive," aald Jeffries In return, "and I con
sider myself lucky to have won when I
Fltzslmmons had been fighting at a fu
rious gait, cool and de-liberate, and chop
ping the champion to plecea with the ter
rific rlghta and lefta thaj. have made him
Jeffries All but Lost.
It waa the draught horse and the racer
from the tap of the gong. When the men
came together Fltzslmmons appeared
rather worried, hut on the opening of the
first round he assumed an-air ot absolute
confidence and' fought with the deliberation
of the general that be la. As early as tbe
second round Fltzslmmona hsd Jeffries
bleeding profusely from mouth and nose.
Again and again he landed oa hla bulky
opponent, getting away In auch a clever
manner that It brought down tha great
bouse with cheers. It seemed, indeed, that'.'
Jeffrlea could .scarcely weather 'out th?
gale. Then the eighth round came. lad.,
under a aerlea of hot exchangee Fitzalm- "
tnona paused "With his guard down and
apoka to tbe champion. Th latter, reply
consisted of the two terrifio blow, that
brought back to him the fleeting champion
ship and forever removed the veteran
Fltzslmmona from the fistic arena. Fltz
slmmons took hla defeat with amazing good
cheer. He walked to tbe center ot tbe
ring and, raising hla hand, addressed the
The best man has won. Had I beaten
Jeffries toi.lght I should have conceded
him the championship and forever retired
from the ring. I retire Just thesame now,
but without having accomplished my am
bition. I am satisfied.
Statement of Jeffries.
After the fight Champion Jeffrlea wa
teen in hi dressing room. He wa jubilant
over his aucoeas, deaplt the terrifio scar
of battle. He said to tbe Aasoclatad Press t
Well, I have won. Juat aa I expeoted to.
It waa a fierce Mailt, the fiercest I ever
had, but I won. Yea, I not a aood beating -as
far as the marks of battle count but
then I rather expected that. I knew Fits-
slmmons had a cutting punch and would
land It at aome time of the fla-ht. But the
few marks and the loss of a little blood -wont
hurt a man. I took them and oniv
waited for the onoortunltv tn land my
Jiunch. I found out Kltxsimmona could not
ar me, even with his famous right. He
rue me up, or course, out tnat old not
hurt. I never was tired at anv stsge and
was stronger than Fltzslmmons at ail
stages. You saw that he wore heavy
bandages and it was these that nut me up.
I wore no bandages. Fltzslmmona cer
tainly It. a wonder. He is the greatest
fighter of hla weight that ever lived. Aa
old as he la, he Is the shiftiest and the
cleverest and the hardest hitting man I
ever met. I want to aive him credit, ns I
know all - who saw It will, for the great
fight he put up. I have no plana for the
Immediate future, as I have not thought of
anything but thla riant for some time and
will not do anythln for a lone oerlod. I
I will take a rest after ths lone siege of
hard training. I think that Fltzslmmona
can defeat any' other man than .myself.
What Fltssimmons Buys.
Cheerful In the face of defeat and full ot
praise for his vanquisher, and writhing In
agony on his couch, surrounded by a score
of friends offering their consolations, Flts
simmons, between short sentence. Inter
spersed with groana, announced that he
had fought his last battle.
I fought ths best I could and the best
man won. He la a arrest fla-nter ani tied
I been awarded the decision tonight - I
would have turned around and eiven him
the championship, for ha is th only man
In the world capable of defending It. 'The
blows that put me out were a left short
arm Jult under the ribs and a right to the
,1w. Aft?r reeelvlna: the terrific body
bl w I knew I waa gone and told Jeffries
to keep away, but he was anxious to finish
me and sent a right awlna to my Jaw. I
fought in the way I did because both my
hand were gone when I entered the ring.
I Injured them on Wednesday hnxlng with
Hank Oriffln. My rlaht hand In nnrtlciilar
was almoat useless. I sm ennfldent, now
even more so than ever, that in mv first
battle with Jeffries I was Ann. Hla show,
ing tonight proved to me conclusively that
my defeat at his bands In our previous
battle waa unwarranted.
Asked why he did all tbe leading. Flti- .
Simmons Indignantly denied the allegation
and aald that Jeffrlea did a great deal of
the work, especially In tbe clinches and
at close range. "He la aa strong aa an ox
and his blow hurt ma considerably, espe
cially his terrific left to the body," said
Asked In regard to hi. plans for th fu
ture. Bob facetiously remarked: "I gtn
going back to Densonhurst and attend to
tbe development of the youth of America
and try to make them like ma a vlguroua
old man, past bis fortieth year and a. bale
and aa hearty aa a man well within bl.
At this juncture Dr. I. C. Cox, who h4
been summoned to attend lb fighter, com
menced an examination of the defeated
pugilist. After a careful examination tbe
doctor announced that Fltzslmmons' ribs
were not broken, but that his ''ft r'df
