In the above summary, 2 independents in Quebec are classed with the conservatives and 1 nationalist with the liberals. One independent in New Brunswick is classed with the liberals. OTTAWA, Ont., March G.—The latest retuins indicate that the government will have a majority of from 15 to 23. The Toronto Globe (liberal) {fives them 20; the Empire (conservative), 42: Mail (independent), 20; Citizen (conservative), 37; Montreal Gazette (conservative), 2: Montreal Star (conservative), 26. In fact, it is impossible with any degree of accuracy to predict what the final result of the returns will disclose. There is no doubt that the government is sustained, but it is doubtful whether it will have a working majority. This may possibly necessitate another election should the ministers find themselves too weak to carry on the government when the house meets. The great reaction that has taken place with regard to the popular issue •before the country unmistakably points to a rapidly increasing desire throughout the dominion' in favor of the closest possible commercial alliance with the United States. The cry of treason has failed in its mission »ad it is evident that if another appeal to the country becomes necessary the liberals will sweep everything before them. The tory party lost in Ontario, Quebec. and Prince Edward Island. It holds its own in Isova Scotia, New; Brunswick, British Columbia and the northwest territories. The majority of the government at the time of dissolution of parliament was 51. There are thirteen cabinet ministers, eleven of whom have been elected and two defeated. The latter are Hon. C. C. Colby, president of the council, and Hon. John Carling, minister of agriculture. Hugh Macdonald (conservative), son of Sir John Macdonald, is elected a,t Winnipeg. James Trow, a prominent liberal, is elected at South Perth. Mackenzie Bowell, minister of customs, is elected for North- Hastings by 200 majority. Sir Adolphe Caron, minister of militia, is elected for Eimouski,' Hon. J. A. Chapleau, secretary of state, is elected for Terrebonne, Que,, by a large majority. John Haggert, postmaster-general, is elected for South Lanark by 500 majority. Hon. C. H. Tupper, minister of/ marine and fisheries, has been elected for Pictou. Hon. .Sir John Thompson, minister of justice, has been elected for Antigonish. Sir Donald Smith (conservative), has been elected for Montreal Center. Dalton MacCarthy, a leading conservative, is elected in North Simcoe. Sir Kichard Cartrfght, the prominent liberal, is elected in South Oxford by over 800 majority. Robert Beith (liberal) is elected in West Burham, defeating- G. T. Blackstock (coneervative). Mr. Blackstock, it will be remembered, defended Birchell in the celebrated murder trial at Woodstock last summer. William Mulock, liberal leader, is elected in North York by a large majority. C. C Colby, president of the privy council', who was running for Stanstead, province of Quebec, is defeated by -over 100. The city of Ottawa has elected "two conservatives. Toronto city has elected three conservatives, Sir .'John Macdonald has -been elected for Kingston by about 250 majority. Sir Hector Langevin, minister of public works, has been elected for Richelieu. Hon. J. A. Ouimet, ex- speaker of the house of commons, is elected. Hon. David Mills, minister of the interior in the Mackenzie government, is elected for Bothwell by 2 ma-; jority. ; • • ; The Globe (liberal) says that the government has been sustained by a majority which at the present writing- .seems'too small to enable it to carry on- affairs for any considerable length of; time. Its majority in the last parliament was 51 and in the new parliament will not 'exceed 13 or 15. At the outside, says the paper, it'-will' be less .than 20, and in times like these.a tory administration pledged to oppose' a trade policy which is impoverishing.the, people cannot work with so slender a majority.. The Globe says it is a case of cities- against the country on.the tariff issue and the result is such as will government from' continu- MKT WH'g ft power. The conservatives are not indulging in any great amount of jubilation. Their losses in the day's battle of both officers and men are not calculated to imbue them with any great amount of hilarity. The liberals are greatly encouraged by the showing they made in the election and confidently assert that Sir John cannot carry on the government with this meager majority and will ere long be forced to make another appeal to the country, when they expect to overcome his present small majority' and defeat him. WASHINGTON. March (J.—Secretary Bliihu- said tluit hi: had nothing to say W't.h Tojfurd to the'<Jinia.di:in olttu- tion, except that there seemed to be an impression in some quarters th;it President Harrison's administration was interested in the election. "As a matter of fact," he said, "the administration is utterly indifferent as to the result. None of the members; of the cabinet took any interest in the matter, and cared less about it than Canadians usually do about our elections." LONDON, March ('>. —The result of the Canadian election is received with general satisfaction. It is looked upon as a. triumph of British feeling and a pledge of attachment to the mother country. The St. James" Gazette is exultant, and winds up a leading editorial by declaring- "Canada is British still. Washington does not yet rule over Ottawa." A RAILROAD SENSATION. Offluiiils of tho New York, New Hiiveii A Hartford to I5<: Arrested—Held Kcspon- slule for tlio Harlem Itlrcr Tunnel Di.t- . aster—President Clark and Director Chiiunuey 31. Dcpew Among Those for Whom Wirrsmts Are Out. NEW Yoniv, March 6.—Coroner Levy has issued warrants for the officers and directors of the New York, New Haven & Hartford railroad, who have been held responsible by the coroner's jury for the deaths of the victims of the Harlem river tunnel disaster. These warrants were for the following officials: Dinners Charles P. Clark, New Hnven, president; E. M. Reed, vice president, New Haven; Lucius Tunic, general manager, New Haven; WUlliim D. Bishop, Jr., secretary, Bridgeport; William L. Squire, treas. urer, New Haven; H. M. Kocher. speiger, comptroller, New Haven; Charles T. Hempstead, general passenger aprent. New Haven, and Charles Rockwell, general freight agent. New Haven. Directors—George N. Miller, New York; Wilson G. Hunt. New York; P. H. Trowbridge, New Haven; William D. Bishop, Bridgeport; Henry C. Kobinson, Hartford; Edward M.. Reei New Haven; Charles P. Clark, New -Haven; Joseph Park, New York; Chauncey M-/- Depeiv, New York; Henry S. Lee.-Springfield; William Rockefeller, New York; Leverett Bralnard, Hartford and Nathaniel Wheeler, Bridgeport. From this it will be seen that the majority of the officials live outside of this state. Coroner Levy does not anticipate that he will have any trouble in securing their attendance in this .city. They will, probably come on here readily, for they would have nothing to gain by resisting the coroner. Should they not come, resort will be had to extradition proceedings. Coroner Levy anticipates having no .trouble with Governor Bnlkley, of Connecticut. Chauncey M. Depew and William Rockefeller will be arrested in the course of the day and brought to the coroners office where their bail will be fixed probably in 323,000. As fast as the arrests are jnade,bail will be taken and the officers allowed to depart. The district attorney's office was notified of the coroner's action. The coroner's duty will cease" with the making of the last arrest and the cases will then come before the grand jury. Inspector Byrnes has been given the warrants to execute. VICTORY FOR MINERS. Operators in the BlonongaheUi Valley Apree to Advance "Wages. PITTSBURGH. Pa., March C.—The long strike of the coal miners of the Monon- gahcla valley has ended in a complete victory for the men. At 10 a. m. the operators met here and decided to ' concede the demands of the strikers for an advance in the mining-rate of one-half-cent per bushel, and resume work on Monday. The strike was one of the longest and most determined ever known in this section. 'It lasted ten weeks and the 0,000 men lost in wages alone over SI,000,000. The absence of this great sum of money in the valley has caused great inconveniences and actual suffering among not only the miners and their families, but the great majority of other persons in the valley dependent directly or indirectly upon the mining of coal for a living. Besides the miners, this strike has affected a great army of day laborers, boat, yard and millmen, storekeepers and even farmers who dispose of their produce to the working people of the valley. The resumption of work will mean prosperity and'happiness to upward of 25,000 people. • Salvador's New President. .
