Dreyfus Slapped  in the  Face on  First
Appearance at  His Military Club.
New York, July 20.���A social cable
to the New York Herald from Paris,
dated Wednetitlay. says that just after
being honored by President Fallierea
al the Klysee palace today, Major
Dreyfus was publicly insulted in the
Cercle Mllitaire, one of the most exclusive clubs in Paris, by a commandant, who slapped him in the face. It
was at a reception at the Cercle Mil,.
laire to the Thirteenth regiment of
artillery that Major Dreyfus and Commandant Targe made their first appearance In a military gatneriug sincu
the recent court verdict.
As soon as Major Dreyfus came into
ihe salon an officer, whose name is not
yet known, ran up and slapped him in
ihe face. The major did not reply.
Jnstanily there was almost a riot in
the club rooms. Two groups were
formed of sympathizers and opponents
of Prey is.
It u,)poa:v that tho incident was
prearranged- and the officer who in
suited DreylUK is declared to hnve de
dined to fight n duel in order to bring
opprobruim on Major Dreyfus aud

crowd is in front of the doors, which
have been closed.

minister of war authorised the ofll-
cers, upon their unanimous request, to
invite Major Dreyfus. The dinner occurred, nnd was marked throughout hy

Discusses Socialism and
Politics at Greenwood
Liberals and Socialist Leader Walk
Round a Circle and Repeat
Ancient History.
(Special  Correspondence.)
Greenwood, July 20.���It was R:S0
Tuesday evening when J. II. Haw*
thornthwaite, M. P. P., accompanied
by his chairman, F. llazlewood, Duncan Hoss. M. P., and .1. H. Brown, M.
P. P., took seals on the platform at
the Auditorium. The hall waa fairly
filled, quite a number of ladies being
present. The chairman at once introduced Mr. Hawthornthwaite, intimating that at the conclusion of his
address Mr. iirowu would speak for
naif an hour. Then Mr. Ross would
be given a half hour, leaving the conclusion  to  Mr.   Hawthornthwaite.
M r. Hawthornthwaite tost no time
getting Into action. He started out
with explanations of the meaning ot
tho terms Conservative and Liberal,
tradng them back through the earlier
Tory and Whig designations to Tthe
original of "Robbers" ana "Sour Milk"
parties. On this as a text he built up
his ariaignmoat of both parties, showing to his own satisfaction that the
Conservatives stood for the capitalistic class, while the Liberals, posing as
reformers of the capitalistic clas3,
failed to reform, and hence both parties were in league with capitalism.
He claimed ii was impossible to re
form capital; tho only thing to do a as
lo abolish it, and to do tliat was the
mission of socialism. His efforts in
the local legislature had been directed
entirely towards the amelioration of
ihe conditions of the working classes
in the direction of tho reduction of the
hours of labor, the protection of life
in betteiing tlie workers' surroundings and iu widening the iranchise.
Matters of taxation and land were of
little moment to him or the party he
represented. Tho socialist has liltle
or nothing to pay taxes on, and few
of them own auy land; hence the
greater the taxation tho better it was
for all, as it fell directly and most
heavily  on  capitalism.
The land question wns of no moment to Socialists; it was held by and
for the capitalist. Until the time
came that the Socialists took charge
of tho mines, mills and factories, they
need not worry about lands and laxes.
All the Socialist and laboring class
had to sell was labor, for which they
got In return the lowest value possible for capitalism to place on it.
In reference to the claim of the Liberals tbat be and his party held the
"balance of power" in the legislature,
and that they ought to assist the Liberals in turning the Tories out, he very
ingeniously insisted that the Liberals
had no claims on his party, because
when one-half of the measures introduced in the legislature in tbe interests of labor had been defeated, the
Liberals must assume responsibility
therefor If his party held the balance
of power.
In recounting what he had done in
the legislature, he referred to the
election day holiday, the Workmen's
Compensation Act, the coal mines regulations, amendment to the Trades
Unions Act, the smelter bill, woman's
franchise, reduction of candidates' deposit, etc. He showed where the Liberals, and particularly Mr. Hrown. had
stood on all these questions, and arraigned him as a traitor to the workingman  and  his  constituency.
Mr. Hawthornthwaltc's speech was
characterized by shrewdness, bitter
ness and even vulgarity,
In his reply Mr. Brown adopted tho
defensive, speaking in great moderation and directing his remarks to ex*
planailon and defence of his acts in
the legislature. He criticized the gov-
ernment's action on the Schools' Act,
the Kaien Island transaction and Columbia and Western land grant, and
showed Mr. Hawthorthwite's attitude
on these und other matters. He described Mr. Hawthornthwaite as one-
tenth Socialist and nine-tenths apologist  for the Conservative government.
Mr. Ross, who was in very good
form, began Ills address by remarking
that Mr. Hawthornthwaite was the
greatest "political curiosity" Jn tho
country, and ended it by declaring
him the greatest "political fakf ' In
tlie country. He directed his remark's
more particularly to Mr. Hawthornthwaite in an arraignment of his attitude on all matters vital to the Con*
servatlve government, and showed him
a time-server and apologist for Premier McHrlde nnd his party. He resented  the  Insolence    of    Mr.    Haw
thornthwaite in charging Mr. Brown
and himself as being the repreaenta
tives of capitalism, and contrasted Mr.
Huwthomthwaite's attitude as a Socialist on the stump and as a defender
of capitalism and corporations ln the
legislature. Mr, Robs also dealt with
the question of railway lands taxation
and the history of the Midway and
Vernon railway project, in each of
which he scored Mr. Hawthornthwaite
rather severely.
Mr. Hawthornthwaite's reply opened up little new ground, being chiefly
a reply personal and in explanation
and  defence  in  matters  criticized.
Extract from Speech of Speaker Sutherland  at  Winnipeg.
Hon. R. Sutherland, speaker of the
house of commons, in opening the fair
at Winnipeg, said among other things;
"The time was when one could but
hope and predict as to the future of
Canada, its west, and Winnipeg���-
when optimism occasionally faltered
and prophecy wa_ flnged with doubt.
Some in those days n��w gone did see
ahead and read the future, as, for example. Lord Dufferln, who expressed
in his' eloquent, and hopeful way, the
prospect before Canada, which,
Like a virgin forest in primeval wood,
Canada still walks in unconscious
beauty among her golden woods.
And   by   the   margin   of   her  tractless
Catching but broken glances of her radiant,  majesty, '
And scarcely recks las yet of the glories awaiting her
In the Olympus of .nations.
"Now, however, she does reck and
"Now all days of doubt are past.
"Now optimism Is abroad in the
land from Nova 9l>otIa's misty coast
to far Columbia's  shore.
"Now Canada is racing to progress
and prosperity. Now this great Canadian west is the cynosure of all eyes,
and the Winnipeg of today, great as
it is, marvellous as are its gresent
growth and progress, is conceded to
be but the precursor of that mighty
and Important metropolis which the
future will develop and disclose. The
local situation is here, the times and
conditions are propitious, and that
public-spirited, progressive and capable men are here no more practical
or powerful proof can be offered than
this fine and famous Snir.
"Our position ns a part ot the great
British empire at the present time, besides being so free to govern ourselves as that within a week or two
past Chief Justice Brewer, of the
United States supreme court, said:
'ue speak of England as a monarchy,
but Canada has greater power than
our individual states'���is at the same
time a conspicuous and enviable one.
Canada seems to be attracting more
attention at home than any other of
the constellation of young na I Ions
which in uniting with the motherland
comprise that empire."

Flathead Valley Awaiting
R. I. Kirkwood's Account of Journey
in by Way of Montana���All
Work is Still Retarded.
Probably the most urgently needed
public work in the Interior of British
Columbia at present fs a road into the
Flathead valley from a point in Brit
iBh Columbia. The district ls undoubtedly rich In oil and timber, and already the provincial treasury has re
oeived considerable sums for licenses.
But, although appropriations aggregating JC.000 have been made by the legislature for a road into the valley, tho
work has not begun, ami is apparentlf
still awaiting the determination of the
best route.
In the meantime the hundreds of
locators, many of- whom are citizens
of Nelson, with considerable sums already sunk in expenses of staking aud
exploring, are waiting with what patience they can muster for an opportunity to go ln and develop.
Before any real work can be done
large sums must be spent lor machinery, drills and derricks, aud the only
route by which they can be taken in
now Is by way of Belton, Montana, a
road only passable in winter, and difficult eveu then.
At leasi this is ithe opinion of R.
I. Klrkwood, of Slocan, who has just
returned from a visit to the valley
with I. N. Dally. Seen at the Hume
today, Mr. Klrkwood said;
"We had to go in by way of Belton.
It Is a long, roundabout and hard road,
hut the only one possible at present.
The road from Plncher Creek Is the
best in summer and fall, but it ls dangerous until the water has gone down
alter the spring floods, it is merely
an Indian trail, and follows the beds
o[ creeks and rivers. They are all
fordable later, but they are no good
for hauling.
"The road from Belton Is very
rough. iN'othing has been done on It
except the clearing of timber; even
the stumps have been left, it is 60
millet) from Belton to the boundary
line. The Flathead valley, south ot
the boundary line, has been an Indian
reserve, but it has just beeu thrown
open for settlement, and we met a
number going iu to locate. It is good
land and heavily timbered, but as far
as anyone knows yet, the oil fields are
entirely nortb of tue line. No indications that 1 have ever heard of of tho
presence of oil have been found in the
valley below the line.
"I visited my own claim. It is not
one of the disputed properties. I have
done very little on it yet, and can't
do much until there Is a road by
which I can get machinery in.
"No, there is very little work being
done in the valley. We met a few
men, but they were merely looking
over the ground, us we were. Ab 1
say, nothing can be done but wait until there ls a road.
"We visited the Sage Creek country,
where the large seepages occur. The
country was burned over last fall and
the heavy timber was completely destroyed. The ground Is covered deep
with dust and ashes, and we had some
difficulty finding the holes that were
bored there a couple of years ago In
u.e first days ot the oil excitement.
"I am not familiar enough with the
district lo express auy opiniou as to
the best route; but Mr. Dally, who has
been interested ln Flathead valley for
over ten years, ts convinced that a
roasl from Morrlssey would be the
best, giving the shortest distance to
u railway aud a very easy grade.
"Certainly British Columbia ean't
afford to let two foads, one from Mon-
lain and one from Alberta, bo the only means of access to a rich���probably.
one of the richest���areas In the province.
"My idea is that a road should he
cleared from Morrlssey, or Fernie, or
Elko, wide enough for a sleigh road,
and then gradually improved with a
good wagon road as fast as money Is
available   for   the   purpose.
"I am going down to Victoria on
business soon, and I intend to cal] on
the minister and urge the matter on
their attention. I think the locutors
ot Flathead valley oil lauds have been
as patient as any men can be expected
to be who know the*, have rich properties and are kept waiting for
means and opportunity to develop
Dr. P.  G. Clark  Ducked  by  Subjects
Under   tils  Own   Influence.
A story  illustrating the  dangers or
hypnotism  comes  from  Slocan   river.
P. G. Clarke, formerly of Nelson, is
there pursuing the double vocation of
rancher and magnetic healer. His operations have attracted a great deal of
attention and Interest
Last Sunday night a party of lumbermen appeared and asked for a
demonstration. Mr. Clarke obligingly
complied, and soon had six stalwart

But the end was a surprise. While

Exciting  Sunday  Evening   Race  From
Halcyon  to   Nakusp.
An exciting boat race disturbed the
calm of last Sabbath evening on the
Upper Arrow  lake.
Harry Mcintosh, proprietor of the
summer resort at Halcyon Hoi
Springs, has lately purchased a new
and speedy gasoline launch for the
diversion of tho guests who flock to
the springs. It was held as an article
of faith by all that the launch waB the
fastest thing afloat In Kootenay.
Lost Sunday evening R. Bulger, of
the C. P. R. fleet, appeared at Halcyon
in a steam yacht. He was leaving for
Nakusp at 7:15. Harry got his launch
in order and waited. The wharf was
lined with spectators to see the yacht
It was a very pretty race, hut Harry
got only second money, and Ihe men
who chaffed hfm over his defeat were
forbidden the ladies' society for the
next 24 hourB.
Commission      Suddenly      Terminated
This Morning Because Hlg-
gins  Wilted.
(Special to The Daily Canadian.)
Victoria, July 26.���The investigation
into llhe World charges against the
lands and works department is concluded. It proves the charges against
Hon. R. F. Green to have been utterly
false. Hlgglns (World editor) now
admits that the evidence alters his
opinion, but atatee-that at the time
the charges were made he would have
believed any charge agafn6t the government.
Commissioner Peters did not press
Hlgglns to give the source of his information on the latter saying he was
not hdldlng back a material witness.
The commissioner withheld his decision, but the universal Impression is
that the government will be absolutely exonerated.
Commissioner Peters roasted the
Times for improper comment in the
editorial columns of that paper. He
"There is no evidence before this
commission that any person was enabled to investigate the waste paper
basket of the lands and works department and to secure therefrom any information of considerable or of any
value to himself. That statement is
absolutely Incorrect. The only piece
of evidence that could be considered
ln that connection at all ls a piece ot
evidence with regard to the production of some plan���a plan of this lot���
which Mr. Anderson had said he picked up on the floor of tne lands and
works department. I think the evidence very clearly shows that tho plan
was not got there, but it was got from
Mr. Murray, who had copied it from
some other plans. At all events, It
was shown that tho document was of
no value whatever, because it merely
contained information that could have
been obtained from any plan of the
town of Victoria. It was not Information that was in any way private, or
that existed only in the lands and
works department, but It was information that could easily be obtained
by any person; so therotore I say that
these remarks are not calculated 'to Interfere with the proper course of this
Investigation, but they lack the essential element of truth. I think, having
made these remarks, I will let the Incident drop."
Annual Acquatte Contest
of N.P.A.A.O.
Kalgoorlie Gold Mines Are Annually
Robbed by Officials.
New York, July 2C���A Cable des
patch to a morning paper from Sydney, N. 8. W., says; In consequence
of a circumstantial statement that the
Kalgoorlie gold mines suffered a loss
ot .',5,000,000 worth of gold by theft,
the minister of mines employed a de/
taetlve to investigate. Ho confirms
the story of enormous stealing, which
amounts to some hundreds of thousands of ounces, but Bays the robberies
arc smaller than alleged. He adds
that certain men who are generally regarded aB upright and honorable, are
living luxuriously wholly on the proceeds of stlen gold they receive from
the actual stealers, who are mostly
officials. A district magistrate confirms the detective, l.niislsiii officials
of the Kalgoorlie companies say the
estimate of the officials Is greatly exaggerated.' The total value of gold
stolen does not exceed $350,000 yearly. The utmost vigilance fails to prevent the stealing.

In iho columna of Tuesday's Canadian will be found a reply to the contention of the Calgary Herald tbat ihu
price of lumber supplied to the purchaser in the prairie provinces is in
advance of what should ht; legitimately charged, and a copy of the Herald
has since come into ilils offlce containing the criticism criticized by us.
While little need be added to whai
has already appeared In onr news
pages, the article in the Herald is nol
only manifestly unjust, but equally offensive to the Lumbermen's Association of British Columbia ami others
not as directly Interested in the lumber trade.
We hold no brief Tor ihe Lumber
men's Association, Inn we should as
soon think of enuring upon the task
of criticizing the cost of producing
foodstuffs on one of the farms near
Calgary, and basing an attach upon
the character of the tanner or stockmen there, as to place any value upon
the tigures submitted by tlie Herald
as to ihu cosl of producing lumber in
British Columbia. Tbe scale of wages
submitted by the Calgary paper as
that being paid in this province is as
absurd as the arguments based upon
it. While we have no positive knowledge of the rale of wages paid to the
various operatives engaged in ilie lumbering and milling Industry at the
last, we can safely aaaure our Cal-
ary contemporary that in the interior
'alone it would be possible to place 500
men ut work in the woods ami mills
at an average of ten dollais per mouth
more than the scale of wages quoted
by Uie Herald, ami even al thai advance the mill owners ami ope aiora
would feel that capable men weie being secured al an advantage u\\'.' the
prices now paid.
When the Herald undertake lo tell
its readers  what  ii  costs  the  manufacturer to  produce  lumber  per  thousand feet, it is taking an unwarranted
liberty   with   the   BltUallon,     Just    as
readily mlghl a mill man Undertake to
tell  the public what   It   costs  the  pub
Ushers  of a  paper   to  produce  that
very essential commodity, and we fancy that his technical ignorance of the
subject   would   lead    him   no    farther
BBtray than it  would seem the Herald
has   wandered.     The  cosl   of   lumber
can  never  be  estimated   till   the season's  work  is over and    the    output
known.    Not  until   then can   Ihe cost
per   thousand   be   more   than   approximately known  to anyone, und. ns hns
been so often found in the past, to hazard  an estimate  before the season is
over has proven to be fatal to the existence of more  than  one  milling enterprise.    The  estimates   ot  the   Herald are therefore quite unreliable, and
a single quotation will be sufficient to
show  our renders  how  willingly  that
paper  hazards   the   facts     in   its     re
marks.    The   Herald   says:
"The largest mill  in  the Kuutenayr
can una out its product for ahout $!>
a thousand. Taking the average sell
Ing price at $17, which is an exceed
ingly moderate quotation, the profit Is
Uu  per cent."
Bul the chief objection of the Cal
gary paper to the action of the Moun
lain Lumbermen's Association Is
summed up in the following paragraphs:
"Bul the assoriatlon has helped to
stiffen the prices. It placed another
restriction upon building in the spring
Of this year that has in many cases
prevented prospective builders from
going on with their work.
"Formerly the solicitor of a lumber
company 'dickered' with a price, and
there was a healthy rivalry.
"Now he shows tbe dealer his price
list, and they are all alike. Tho advanced prices are tied upon all, aud
there is no redress. The association
is  law."
We doubt very much ff any prospective builders have been prevented
from going on with their work because
of the cost of lumber. Such conditions could obtuln only to a very limited extent, and In view of the fact
that American lumber Is for sale on
the prairie market���lumber which is
cut under very much more advantageous circumstances than that cut in
the mountains of the interior���there
must be other contingent conditions
which have had a deterrent effect upon  building operations.
Thy Herald utterly fails to consider
ihe advantages resulting from cooperation among the lumbermen, such
as the more even selling and distribution of the woody products, Ihe equalization of both price and supply, and
the general advantages which invariably result from proper organization of
the various branches of any manufacturing industry. If there is no longer
any "dickering." it is to the advantage
of both seller und buyer, for then both
contracting parties know just where
they are, and an even, steady commerce  must   result.

for the advancement of religious and

church people especially should offer

Important  Victory  for   Banks   Won   in
Full  Court on  Appeal   From
Revision   Court.
'. Burns & Co,
Vancouver, July 25.���With one
stroke of Kb pen the appellate court
haB saved Uie dozen or more banks
doing business in this province each
approximately $1,000 yearly, and deprived the provincial treasurer ot that
amount, hy deciding ihat interest paid
out on deposits is an "outgoing or
expense" properly deducted from the
banks' gross income, and therefore
nol   taxable aH  Income.
While the victory Is a general one
benefiting nil the banks with head of-
llces in the easl and branches here,
the credit for lhe victory is chiefly
due to the Hank of Hamilton, which
carried the test action to the highest
court ln the province and won this,
lhe main question in ihe case.
The second point, upon which they
raited, wus the contention that they
were also entitled to exempllon on 1
per cent., representing the Hritish Columbia branches' contribution to gen
eral expenses, such as salaries, cost
of transmission of the moneys from
the head offices, etc. Their right to
exemption on this, the court held, had
not been sufficiently shown. Hut the
hanks hope to bring this up again
next year with the expectation, of
It was upon the first, chiefly that
the cast! was fought. The court of
revision had decided In effect that
the whole Income from the banks'
loans and transactions in the province
was taxable, which in the case of tho
Bank of Hamilton was about 7 per
cent. With this infant court the contentions of the banks had no weight.
The chief of these waB that they
were charged by the head offices with
3 per cent., which went to the depositors as interest, and that at. the most
only the remaining 4 per cent, of
their Income was taxable.
Against that decision the Dank of
Hamilton for all appealed, and now
Chief Justice Hunter, Mr. Justice Irving and Mr. Juki ice Duff have upheld
the banks' contention, deciding
against   ihe  provincial  treasurer.

king of the Belgians, has just conferred the Order of Leopold, with rank
of chevalier, upon Thomas R. Smith,
