The Dreoyfus trial Is still the absorbing topic in Francs. It is stated
that the Government will withdraw
the charge against Dreyfus and proceed
inatsad against General Mercier for
forging documents tocondemn Dreyfus.
Tho Nelson Miner, an Opposition
paper, is candid enough to admit that
"the real reason why Mr. Henderson
was not opposed in New Westminster,
was no doubt ths fear that he could
not bs defeated."
Hon. A. Henderson, who Wns appointed Attorney-General in place of
Hon. Jos. Martin, has been reelected
for Ntw Westminster by acclamation.
Where wore the Opposition who boasted that tho Government had gone to
pieces and that a Government candidate could not be elected for New
Westmiuster ?
Thi Nelson Tribune says: "D. W.
Higglns has left tbe Government,
party, Mr. Higglns has been leaving
government parlies sver since he became a member of ths legislature. The
trouble is, governments will not trust
tbe genial ex-speaker any further than
a cowboy can throw a bull by the tail."
According to the Inland Sentinel:
"The inability of the Opposition to
find a candidate to contest the New
Westminster by-election, is the best
reply tt all tht nonsense that has
appeared in Opposition [tapers recently

been working in the sawmill here for
quite a while and hail td leave it

had been treated for ths same here
before the accident which, I am sure,
waa the cause ol my misfortune. I
am an Old Ctuntryman, and have

write this to give the publio a cioar
idea of the accident.

The following repdrts were pros-anted
at the annual mteciug of tbe Oolden
Hospital Society \
To the Buard ol .Directors,
Gulden Hospital.
Gentlemen :
I bave tho honour to present herewith reports of Medical Superintendent, balance sheet, statements of
revenue and expenditure, and compara
tive statements for year ending Jtuie
30th, 1809.
Tbe number of patients in the hospital has been smaller then during the
previous year, the decrease of in:
patients being 16 for h total decrease
of 85 days, as compared with the pre-
vious year.
The number of out -.patients has
increased 2.33 per cent, b-.'ing 14 moro
than Inst year.
In reviewing the comparative statement of expenditure you will notice aU
items shew a decrease with the exception of salaries aud wages, b-iilding
and repairs, there being an increase of
$395.72 In salaries, aud I601.7G
in bnildings and repairs. Part of the
increase is due for extra help for nurs-
ingnud watching. $45 increase in
salary as per agreement, and t4ti paid
on last year's acoouut. Taking into
consideration the serious cases that
were treated nnd' the number of
ptitieots nt times in the hospital it
would have been impossible to do
without the extra assistance.
Buildings nnd repairs.���This shews
an increase of $001,7(1 over the pro
vious year. In thie increase are included $1000 sot apart by the Directors
towards the erection of an isolated
ward for infectious diseases.
The feven.no acoount shews ths largo
increase of $1301.1*7 over the previous
year. The monthly fees owing to the
busy season of the lumber uuinps bave
also considerably increased. In this
increase of $757.33 is included $;i'i7.yo
which should have beon credited to
189-3 account as explained by my predecessor at the lasr. annual meeting.

Tho manner iu which the townspeople hate contributed towards the
hospital hns indeed beon gratifying.
Ore-it credit is due to Nurse Holt's

Golden, B.C., Aug. 7th, 18t>&
The Board of Directors,
Golden Hospital Society,
Gentlemen ;
I have the honour herewith to submit tu you a report uf patients treated
at the hospital during the year ending
June 30th 1899.
The indoor patients numbered 75, of
whom 78 were males and 7 females.
There wero 80 patients admitted, and
5 remaining in hospital from the previous year. 76 were discharged as
cured. 3 improved (ono ef them was
subsequently treated as an out-patient,
and matte a prompt recovery), 3 remained in hospital at the end of tho
year, and 3 died. Of the deaths one
due to pneumonia in a mamagpd 78|
one to chronic Bright'** disease, aud
one to cerebral hemorrhage iu au infant two days old.
The total number of hospital days
was l4>>2, making an average stay per
patient of 17.08 days. There were til3
out-door patients. A list of diseases
treated is appended.
The cutting off of the Government
grant has indefinitely delayed the construction of an isolatod building for
the reception of infectious cases. Tbe
need of suoh a building would bo seriously felt by th* community iu the
oveut of nny epidemic
I would suggest, for your consideration, tbe necessity of a separate build
iug for maternity canes. A building
used as a general hospital Is not a
proper place wherein to receive maternity patients.
I bave tbe honour to be, gentlemen,
Faithfully yours,

On Saturday morning, as the special
with the Canadian Press Association
was coming through the Kickiughors*?
Canyon, tbo engine struck the guy
rope of a derrick in use by McGregor's
bridge gang, who were engaged in repairing a bridge, at Glenogle. The
result was tbat tho derrick swung
round, aud A. McGregor, the bridge
foreman, 'and Edward Suucie, who
were on it at the time, were thrown
down. McGregor hud au arm broken
and his head badly cut, nnd Souoie
had an arm and a rib broken. The
men wero brought on to the Golden
Hospital, Dr. Sylvester, of Toranto,
who was ou the train witb the excursionists kindly attended to the injured
men meantime. At the Hospital Des.
Sylvester and Richardson set the
broken limbs and dressed the wounds,
and we are glad to report that the
pat ion ta ere doing well.
Catarrh had Pinioned Them, but Dr. Agnew's Catarrhal Powder Cut the Cords
and Freed Them from the Disease.
Mrs. W. A. Steele, 24 Inkermau street,
Toronto, says: "For months and u.ontliH I
suffered torments from pain' in my head,
caused by acute chronic c-inutJi. I used Dr
AguOw's Catarrhal Powder nnd found ita
perfect specific. My son was also a victim
of this malady for three years and suffered a
great deal. Doctors could not euro him, hnt
one application of Dr. Ajruow's Catarrhs!
Powder gave him great relief, and It cured
bim in an incredibly short time.11

One result of the accident to an east-
bound freight 4 miles east of Donald,
about one o'clock Monday morning,
and which interrupted telegraphic
communication at that point, wns to
give ua an interesting example of the
capabilities cf the Canadian Pacific
and tbo American Postal Telegraph
systems, Ou receiving the report of
tho accident Superintendent Duches-
nay, at Revelstoke, was anxious to
instruct Field regarding the wrecking
outfit and make arrangements for
clearing tbo wreck. In a few minutes
a direct wire to Field was arranged
which enabled Supt. Ducbesnay to
make all arrangements direct. Considering the fact that this wire circled
tbo continent with the exception of a
few miles, it is certainly a wonderful
illustration of the perfection of ths
C.P.R. and Postal-Telegraph Systems.

In tbo little hamlet of Montroso
Wetland Country, resides a lady who
gives much praise to the curative
powor of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills.
The subject of this testimony is Mrs.
Richard Hanna, an estimable lady who
has resided iu that locality for many
years. A ro porter seeking an interview with Sirs. Hanna found her
willing to give full details, which are
given in her own words. Five years
ago I was taken ill, I attributed tbe
trouble nt the time to an injury
sustained by a fall, Timo went on and
I did not get better. Tho symptoms
of my complaint worn palpitation of
the heart, extreme weakness, stomach
troubles aud terrible headaches. I was
very nervous, had no appetite and experienced much wakefulness at night.
Finally I was compelled to taku to my
bed. boing too weak to ait up any
longer. Iu tbis condition I was treated at different times by three doctors,
and took a great quart ity of medicine
but realized uo benefit. Not one of my
neighbors thought I would get well.
In tbe meantime I thought myself that
death would soon end my sufferings.
One day Mrs. Smith, of Port Robinson
came to sea uie aud pnreuaded my husband to procure fur ine some of Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills, and ho purchased six boxes. After taking the six
boxes I had improved very much and
was ablo to b.r up. though yet too weak
to walk. I sent for another six boxes
and ns a result considered my cure
complete. I can relish food better,
sleep soundly, and stand more fatigue
than I could for years previous.
Although t have passed themoridian
of life I feel as healthy as when I was
in my twenties. With great pleasure
and a grateful beart I give this

The Canadiuu Bunkers association
met yesterday to receive u report upon
the affairs of the Bauque Ville Marie,
prepared by an inspector from the Bank
uf Moutreal, aud one from the Merchants' Bunk, but they decided to ludko
public nothing about the report as suoh
publicity might tend to interfere with
the liquidation of the bank, and depreciate tbe value of some of its securities. The report ouly covered points
uf the Ville Marie bank's circulation
in which other bnnbs are naturally interested, as they would bave to. make
flood whatever amount the Ville Marie
Bauk was unable to. The supposition,
therefore, is thut (hero ti a large over
issue circulation, and ou tbe street tbe
amount of over circulation is plaed as
high as $700,000.
It is stated tbe different banks of
Canada have nearly $111*0,000 of the
Ville Marie bills in their possession, as
the bank nfter suspension is said to
have redeemed abont $100,000. Thie
would amount to a cireuiution of $400,-
000; when on dune U0 the official returns gave n circulation of only $201,-
870, Whether the over circulation is
really as large as this cannot be stated
positively, as the bankers' association
decline to make public tbe. repnrfc -of.
the inspectors. In the" meantime the
bauk will not redeem any more of its
bills until after Monday, when the
creditors meet.

Reducing Yukon Force.
Ottawa, Ang. 18.���Within a month
or six weeks one-half of the military
force in Y ukou will be back iu the depots from which the men were drawn
labLyear. There bas lieen some talk
uuraug the men of the forces hete that
iu case of au outbreak of trouble In the
Transvaal a -portion of the Canadian
regulars might be despatched to South
Africa, but the story meets with official
denial. In case of the uiuiappy necessity for employing actual force in
South Africa, it is quite possible Cauada might contribnte towards the defense of tiie imperial interests and it Is
not at all unlikely volunteers wonld be
forthcoming, but our regular force is
so small thut it is felt it would be required here.

A marvellous cure of KIDNEY DISEASE by using the world-famous
Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills^^
Mrs. P. Downs, 53 Farley Avenue, Toronto, tells of her wonderful cure as follows:
" For several years I was crippled with spinal trouble and disordered kidneys, at times
the pains in the back were excruciating. I almost despaired of anything like permanent
relief, as I had tried every kidney medicine I heard of or saw advertised. I was induced
to try Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills by hearing of others who had been cured. I am
not exaggerating it when I say that, the result has been akin to marvellous. When I had
used one box I was relieved of the severe pains in the back from which I had constantly
suffered, and am today a well woman."
Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills positively and permanently cure the most complicated
diseases of the kidneys and liver. They are the world's greatest kidney cure, and have
an enormous sale in Canada and the United States. One pill a dose, 25 cents a box, at
all dealers, or Edmanson, Bates & Co., Toronto.

makers put up at a hotel at uiy borne

they would leave It with him every
night, and were particular iu sayiug
that it wns to be delivered only In the
presence of all three. It was evident,
you see, that they didn't quite trust ouo
"Well, a week or so roiled around,
ami oue morning oue of the trio cume
down rather early and called for the
cash. Without thinking of the conditions of delivery, the clerk banded it
over, ami the bookmaker promptly
skipped. His two partners were furious ami brought suit against the hotel
for $35,000, the amount lu the bundle,
"A smart young lawyer volunteered
to take lite defense, which other attorneys frankly regarded as hopeless.
When the trial came off lie waited until the bookmakers had submitted all
thi'ii- evidence, uud then arose with a
large butulle lu his baud.
" 'We stand ready,' be said, 'to rulllll
the letter of the agreement you have
just proved. This package contains
$2*i.000 In cash. As soon as the three
owners apply for It together wo are
