WHAT  DREYFUS   SAID
Was   Confident   That in   Threo  Years
Time His Innoi euce Would be
Kec imized,
Paris, April 19,���The Figaro contiti-
uiug today its pnblioation of testimony offered before the oonrt of cassation in the Dreyfus revision inquiry,
prints the depositions of Captain
Lei-run-Remind autl a host of minor
personages.
Madame Pays gave a series of denials
to all tlio statements attributed to her
whioh tended to incriminate Esterhazy. She denied writing the "Sper-
unza" telegrnm and said she had
inner see General do Boisdeffre, General Depelliez or General Mercier.
She deolared herself ignorant of the
authorship of the Bordereau, and
therefore could uot, as had been alleged, have reveal**/! their names. In reference to the statement of her concierge that Esterhazy deolared Dreyfus
nmoeent. She explained that what
Esterhazy said was that regardless of
the result of thn base intrigues of the
defenders of Dreyfus the latter would
issue triumphant while he (Esterhazy)
would be morally condemned,
"There" said Esterhazy, aooording
in Madame Pays, "is the judicial error". Sbe concluded her testimony by
i ailing how Esterhazy was warned
that he -would bo denounced
Captain Lebrun-Rennud, who had
oharge of Dreyfus at the time dT his
degradation, described his interview
with htm. Dreyfus, he said ar first
protested his innocence, insisting that
lie had a splendid future before him,
and adding: "I am innocent, in three
years my innocence will bereoognized
Tlie minister knows it. Colonel iln
Paty du Clam came to see mo a few
days ago nnd told mo the minister anil
others were aware that if I did give
iioeunieuts to Germany tbey wero unimportant and had the object of obtaining important ones in return. "
Captain Lebmn-Renand, then related how ho had repealed the words
of Dreyfus to numerous officers, Theu
next day he repeated them to Gene al
Mercier and to M. Dupuy, who tool*
him to President Onsmiir-Pcrior.
Tho hitler questioned him (the witness* regarding his indiscretions to
journalists Witness denied on that
occasion speaking to reporters, but he
admitted that perhaps be had spoken
in their hearing. Since that time.
ns tbe result of this blame, anil on a
warning from his superior officer. Colonel Kisbourg, he had not spoken nl
the matter except to some superiors.
He did not make any affidavit, but
an ordinary report ot tne conversation
whioh ho regarded* as a confession of
the delivery of documents. He did
not repeat the words of Dreyfus befon
M, Casiniir-Peiior or M. Dupuy, as
they did not ask him anything about
Dreyfus, but ho showed his notes of
llio conversation with Dreyfus tn M.
Oavaignao.
| Ool. Risbourg was called and confirmed Oaptaiu Lebrun-Bennud's ao-
eonut of his (Risbonrgsi reprimanding
liini and admitted that bo had not
made an affidavit of Ihe incidents because they were known to the minis
Ier and to M. Casitnir-Perior. Bonio
officers testified that Captain Atollep,
who according to Captuin Lei.run
Kenaud was present during the conversation with Dreyfus, had described
llio interview to thorn Immediately
afterwards clearly showing thnt Drey
Ies bail made the avowals. General
Hurras, whol commanded the Parade
at the execution of the sentence testified tiiiit when the judgment was read
Dreyfus exclaimed ; "I am still worthy
to belong to the army,  vivo D' Arinco,
Viva La Franoe" Barras said be heard
no othor words from linn during the
ceremony of degradation,
tho authorities tl ��� ��� assistance thoy
might; in faot, li * ���*��� are reasonnhle
grounds for the l* **l that Oasimir
hu.i obtained foe. and shelter from
members of the tribe since the murder.
The Government's prompt, offer of a reward of $200 for the arrest of Oasimir is
warmly approved, as it is believed
that lln* hope of securing this sum will
induce the Indians to betray tho murderer's hiding place. Cor.mer Clarke
is holding an inquest this morning,
The funeral of the murdered man
takes plaoe tomorrow afternoon.

oupied the surrounding hills.

the Indian infantry advanced, the Chine o retiring several miles burning
villages.
The Chinese losses are unknown, as
they carried away their dead and

Manila.
Now York, April 10. ���A special to

Among llie serious problems confronting General Otis at Manila none

n.eutal demoralization as to givo rise
io a suspicion thatj the army of ooon-
patlon was being systematically drugged or poisoued to render them helpless to resist au insurgent attack.
This native drink was generally
known as vino. It was exceedingly
palatable and inexpensive, but a single
..link of it unfitted a soldier for active
duty for the succeeding 34 hours,
while frequent potions sou tbe soldiers
to the hospital for a long period of

Speaking of the Canadian Pacilic
Company's treatment of Moyie. The
Leader of that place says: "It lias
-ignified its intention of doing the
right tiling by the people of Moyie,
and will in the near future grant them
the facilities which they deserve."
i'his littlo affair tben, may now be
iegarded as closed.
t'l-lK     REPORTS     ARM    DENIED.
AGITATION NOT WANTED.
If tho Rossland Record will permit
us, wo would like to suggest to it
that there is room for the impi'o'-e-
ment of its manners. It dots not seem
to recognize that fairness and courtesy
are quite us desirable and necessary
between newspapers as between gentlemen, if intercourse that is not offensive
is to be possible at all. Its advocacy of
tho eight-hour law does not require
that it should misrepresent The Miner,
and still less is its argument strengthened by calling names
Tho Miner adheres to its statement
that Rossland is the homo and centre
of a gang of professional agitators. As
soon as the Record can show that it
is wrong we shall be happy to withdraw the statement, and make such
amends as tbe occasion may require.
Uutil then, however, it stands. But
in saying this The Miner did not say,
or intend to say, or wish to be understood as saying, that all Rossland miners are professional agitators. That is
tho misrepresentation put upon our
words by The Record, intentionally
we are hound to believe, unless we ure
to conclude that it is more ignorant
than wo had supposed. And we presume The Rocord's mental perception
and moral discrimination will enable
it to understand how intoutioual misrepresentation ought to he characterised.
There are no doubt many excellent
men amoug the miners of Rossland.
That thoy are tbe best in tho Province, as claimed by the Rossland pa
per, wo are not, just now at any rate,
prepured to admit. If lu any reepuot
superior to the miners as a class in and
about Nolson th oy aro certainly a fine
lot. But thore aro black sheep in all
flocks, aud amoug the miners of Rosslaud aro men who aro the scum of
American camps. They are the agitators, the promoters of differences, the
provokers of discontent and strife.
We said aud say that such men should
be whipped out of the country with a
ropo's oud. The Record throws a protecting arm around thein, nud answers
back that it is lire-eaters like the Miner that bring trouble and discord.
The Miner may be very depraved, but
that would not render a class of agitators desirable. This Proviuco does
uot want agitators; the mining regions
and the mining industry do not want
them. We want peace aud contanl-
ment, the employment, of capital, the
encouragement of labor, and the happiness and prosperity that come of
these.
The Manitoba papers, without distinction of party, are praising the action of the Dominion Government in
advanoing Mr. Justice Killam to the
position of Chief Justice, recently
vacated by Sir Thomas W, Taylor. To
do the obviously right thing would
seem to be a matter of course, and undeserving of particular praise. But in
this caso the Government, aro entitled
to all the complimentary tilings said
of them. There was tlie opportunity
to provide for some deserving adherent
of the party. It is believed that this
temptation in one instance proved too
great to be withstood, hut the gentlemen who had the offer of the position
had also the self-denial to decline it.
It may be that tho offer was made ou
thut understanding. As it has turned
out, however, nothing oould bo better.
Mr. Killam is one of the best judges
in Canada, ami i be position of Chief
was his by right of merit. But he is
not yet quite in his proper place, and
will not bo until he is moved down to
Ottawa und put on the Bench of the
Supreme Court.
Tho Editor of the Rossland   Miner is
suffering great perturbation of mind,
Some oue has informed him that the
Canadian Pacific Company havo
thro'toned "to make the grass grow*
on the streets of Grand Forks, nnd
the place would be wiped off the
map." The Miner, unfortunately for
its nwu peace, has a predisposition to
helisve such tales, and being deeply
philanthropic its spirit is sorely troubled by them. It is probable that the
Oompany have made no snob throat,
but  even if they have wo bog onr con-

The Big Chief (jroup ot mines is
situated on Koulder Cn*ek, a tributary
of Wild Horse Creek, and the loea-
tion of the mines is on the west side
of the oreek, and about four miles from
the main oreek, Wild Horse, aud no;
more than seven miles from Fort
Steele. The property consists of three
claims the li;-* Chief. Ames and Golden Coin, and were located by K. J.
Highby, H. L. Ammo. Walter Van
Arsdaleu and A. B. Grace. Since the
bonding of this property there has
teen ovor .110,(100 expended in developing those claims. The ore is a por-
phyritio quartz. The ledges aro well
defined, aud have been exploited for a
distance of nearly 1,000 feet. There
aro two veins or ledges running
through the olainis, Tbe main ledge is
eight feet in width, the small ledsia is
three foot wide, and parallels the main
ledge at a distance of fifteen feet.
The present development work consists of an open cut 12 foot in length
at tho poiut where tho diseovory was
mado. Une hundred foot down the
mountain there is a tuuuel iu 50 feet
with a shaft down I*.' feet. Three hundred feet further down, another tunnel
is in 2b foot, with a crosscut to tbe
small ledge. The main ledge at tliii-
poiut has a rich pay streak on the
hanging wall; the small ledge is also
very rich in this drift. Three hundred
feet lower is a tunnel in (10 feet.
This tunnel is ruu on the veiu, aud
there is a woudoful showing of rich
oro iu the faoe, gold being visible and
very evenly distributed, through the
quartz which contains a largo amount
of tellurido. Five huud"od feet down
another tunnel has been started which
is now in some 111 feet. This tunnel
will open the ledge at tho water level
and at a depth of 1,100 feet from the
discovery poiut. The oro in this tun
nel has lost uone of ils values, on the
contrary the oro is more uniform iu its
distribution. The development work
has demonstrated that there is a ledge
eight toet in width by 1,100 feet ill
length,also that this veiu is paralleled
by another vein, three feet in widtii
for the same distance.
Au expert who returned from an inspection of the property said to a Pros-
peetor represenative: "There is ore
euough iu sight ou the Big Chief to
keep a large number of stamps going
for a good many years." It may nor
be out of place to mention a fow of tlie
many assays tbat have been mad*'
from samples taken from the numerous tunnels and drifts. The first assay taken wont $'-J,5*31 iu gold, and i?:i*i
in silver. No. 2 assay, $1, 1148.3b in
gold. A largo number of assays have
averaged from $300 to $1,501) in gold.
The largest assay wont $12,yfi0 in
gold. Tho property is uow under
bond to Mr. E. C. Egan, tho well
known railway oon tractor. Mr. Egan
has expended about }10,0(JO in develop
ment work ou the chums, besides the
cash payments that have beeu made
on the bond. ���Furt Steele   Prospector.
A despatch to tbe Rossland Minor
from Slooan City says: J. F. Galium,
the uow superintendent and manager
of the Arlington, was here last week,
aud is letting a contract for sinking
tbeir present shaft another 100 feet.
Time is not specified to complete the
contract, aud on its completion a full
force of mon will bo put to Work,
The Arlington Mining Company
has been reorganized, with Mr. Galium as general manager.
Tom Mulvey is down from the Gal-
umot and Hecla, where tho owners
have been continually working since
last summer. Tbey havo driven a
crosscut in 220 feet, cutting Iho ledge
at 170 feet depth, where the lodge is
80 foot wide. Thoy are now drifting
100 feet on the ledge, The property is
a dry ore ono, oarrying gold and silver.
Mr. Mansfield, who is working tlie
Joker uuder bond to a oompany of
Frenchmou, has boon forced to temporarily stop work owing to surface
water, but work will be resumed as
soou as possible. They intend to extensively develop Ibis property, and
have stink a shaft 100 feet deep, and
huve also drifted some 70 foot on the
lodge. This property is near tlie
Molly Gibson, and Ihe work so far lias
been most encouraging.
The crosscut ou tlio Black Priiicr
has leached the ledge, and the fir*-1
shot discovered a pay streak of I**-
lnrhos on the foot wall. Tho average
from several assays weut 00 ounces In
the ton in silver. There is also sunn*
copper, but no assay was umde for
tins.
A little macbino is working away
day alter dav at tho Cariboo mill iu
Damp MrKinney that is not attracting
muoh attention, but is destined,   if ll
proves tbo sueeoss BUtioipoted, to make
a great change in mining operation in
the northwest. The tailings from Ihe
Cariboo stamp mill are run through
this maubine after tho mill has taken
out all tho Kold it can and are handled
once more at a profit. The niaol.ini*
makes the most complete saving ol
gold ever known. Malcolm MeAulay
tho owner of tlio machine, is at present
iu the city.
"Ono of thoso machines is being
used in placer mining on the Columbia river, but I am the first to use tl e
same mechanism in handling the
tailings from a quartz mill," said Mr.
MeAulay, "The saving of gold liy
this macbino is so complete that even
tho line particles floating on (he water
are secured. By tho time we an*
through with tbo rook it Is absolutely
without value. The oro from tin*
Cariboo is orusbed in the stamp null
and most of Ihe gold taken out of ll

tailings aro then oorrled on through
