The Figaro Continues to Publish the Proceedings
PICQUART'S    EVIDENCE
Every thing Goes to Sliov.* That Dreyfus
Conviction ,was  a Pre-deter-
mjged  Affair.
Paris, April 17,���Tlio Figaro, continued its publication of testimony
offered before tlio court of cassation in
the Dreyfus revision proceedings gives
another instalment of Onlonel Pie-
quart's evidence. Oolonel Pioquart
denied that lie had expended 100,000
fiiincs in his inquiriesoonoernitig oora-
niiindant Esterhazy, on the contrary
lie said his expenses uutlor this lie ui
Wi re very small. When the Eclair,
in September 18i)0, published an article first mentioning that secret documents had been eommnnicuted to tlie
court martial, Pioquart supposed it
was a manoeuver of the Dreyfus family
to get the trial annulled, and be endeavored to ascertain the author of tbe
Eolair's article.
From the timo when bo mentioned
this regarding Esterhazy to General
(louse, Pioquart fell, be believed, a
disguised hostility on thn pnrt of
(louse towards himself, lie referred,
in tbis connection, ro the ignoring by
Generals Qonse, Billot and Ue liois-
deffre ot bis proposals that measures
in* employed regarding Esterhazy.
Wben the Matin printed the bordereau
n detective was charged with Iho duty
of watching Esterhazy, and Pioquart
noticed a great agitation on the part
of|lhe Cunimnndunt, who gave the impression of being cu-rected.      ,
Oolonel Pioquoit described nn occasion iu IH'.ili when General de Bois-
ilell're invited him to go for a rine and
discussed the affair with him, The
general at the time exhibited a marked
reluctance to accept evidence tuvor-
nlile to Dreyfus. On another occasion
General Billot having mid Pioquart
tlie contents of n document signed
Maximilian, which be (Billot) regarded as proving the guilt of DrnyfllB,
Oolonel Pluqunrt expressed doubts oi
its genuineness to General (louse.
The bitter replied "When a ministei*
tells me something I always believe
it." Pioquart remarked that tbis was
extraordinary and that the document
must have been sent by Lieulon ml
Oolonel Henry to General Gouse di
rootly, without bis (Pioquarts) oogniz*
insinuations of "in ;nlai-tv"in culling
tor the lenders tins fact would com.
pletely dispose of them ns Mr, Kydd
bad his figures decided upon long before the ten lers were culled for. Tbe
latter follows:
H. G. Neelands, Esq., Mayor, Nelson,
Dear Bir:���Qn belialf of the Merchant's Bank of Halifax we take execution to tho unbusinei * like treatment that is being received by that
bank with respeot to the Olty account.
In July lust the bunk tendered for
the.debentures of the Oitv to Hie ex*
eut of 120,000, at par, "less legal ex-
penses not to exceed 9150, but. their
tender was uot accepled and the debentures wero sold to the Bank of
Montreal at OK'*., cents on the dollar.
It was not at that time considered necessary to disclose the figures at which
tbe bant was prepared to carry the
Cty's account, and i* *vas decided to
ullow the matter to remain in obey-
ance until somo ange had taken
place in the personnel of the Council.
Upon the advent of the new Council
the General Manager of the Merchant's Bank of Halifax for this Province authorized Mr. George Kydd at
the proper time ta make an offer for
the carrying of the City's account
nnd tbis authority was complied with
to the letter by Mr. Kydd in the offer
be has lately made, aud which wus
accepted at the last meeting of the
Counoil,
g As evidence of Mr. Kydd's au-
tbority in the matter we enclose you
herewith for your perusal uud that of
tbe members of your Council the letter dated tho 8ld day of February,
from Mr. Botsford, General Manager,
a portion of which gives the authority
above referred to. On the strength of
t is authority,nnd upon being requested to do so, Mr. Kydd on the -iTtli day
of February submitted his proposition
to the Council, and subsequently learned that his offer was tho lowest, the
oilier three banks ull having proposed
to take the City's account at the same
figure, but higher than that of the
Merchant's Bank of Halifax.
This seems to he u simple proposition, and we are surprised to learn
that uny insinuation should be made
ugainsl the methods on the part ol
the bunk of its looal manager in making this offer,
In view of your ha'-ing vetoed the
resolution passed by the Council in tin
matter, we are writing simply to lay
the tacts before yourself and the members of your Council. Yours truly
MACDONALD St JOHNSON.

STILL TALKING   ABOUT HANKS
The Letter   Which   Came   Before   the
Council on Saturday.
The position of the City Couucil
on the bnuk account question was n
matter very freely discussed yesterday. The reports of the proceedings of
the Council on Saturday morning did
not assist very materially In helping
lo arrive ut ll conclusion. However, as
no resolution touching the question
wus moved at the meeting it is pretty
well understood (hut tho session on
Buturday does not count us anything
beyond a sample in what u ridiculous

nccount     ui      ibe   old   figures,    This
means thut the city would continue
to borrow money ut the rate of 1   per
cent.    For such gill edged security this
is regarded ns u rate that should not be
considered for a moment as Ibe Oity
Oounoil could get a   better rule almost
anywhere, The new offer or tbe
Bank of Halifax Montreal wus it per

Hillyer strongly support the peculiar
"land of Aid. 'Fletcher���but they urn
about tbe only ones who do.
It will be remembered that some
Weeks ago the Oity Council met, and
appointed Aid. Fletcher noting Mayor
during the abseuoe of His Worship  al

Philadelphia, Pa. April li.���Some
startling fuels were brought out today
in the trial of ex-Senator Quay on the
charge of conspirnoy to defraud the
state. The prosecution are endeavoring to prove that Quay had for a number of years used the money deposited
by the State People's Bank to his personal advantage. Expert accountant
Meyer Goldsmith who had examined
tbe bank's books was on the stand today. He testified that during the year
ISOil-IM and 96 the stute deposits ranged
from $4-10.000 to $2,000,000 und during
the same period Senator Quay's loans
from tbe bunk run as hieh as {886,000.
No interest bad apparently beeu paid
by Quay on the loan Iu tbe following
vour the s'ate deposits varied from
1400,000 to |625,000 and Senator Quay
wus loaned $141,000. Tho bank nls'o
bought for Quay during this time
stock aggregating in value $500,000
but no payment of interest by Senator
Quay on these transactions wns shown
by the books. In 1807 the stute deposit
was ill tho neighborhood of 1560,000.
Quay's louns aggregated (185,000,
ind the bank purchased stocks ro the
i-nlue of $14)1.000 for Quay nnd no interest was paid on either the loans or
tho stock transactions. According to
-be books of the bunk, it wus shown
bat of this last deposit by the state
it $540,000; tw-mtv -per cent, was nsi ,*,
liy the bunk without interest, (200 -
000 was set aside for the Use of Qnnv,
md tbe interest on the balance was
���iiiiiputed and divided between Quay,

through whom Quay transacted nil bis

"You have interfered witli it pretty
much, " wns the retort.
Mr. Croker declared he bad nol

leadership of Tammany Hall, He had
merely stated that he would remain
iu Tammany Hall as long us he lived
Mr. Croker suid he' bad not paid his
last year's personal tax nf $50,000 because the mortgage on bis real estate

;,' "What personal estate did yon hnve
when you went to make your affidavit
in tlie tux olliee," asked Mr. Moss.
~ "Nothing" said Mr. Croker.
J "That is what I meant when I asked
you the question. Perhaps it is au objectionable term, but were you not
broke when you came buck from England?" suid Mr. Moss
"No sir, I was not," replied tbo
witness, nnd bo added, "I brought
buck some English money with   inc."
"You wont a municipal gas plant

"Yes" said Mr. Croker.
"With contracts carried ont by members of the organization?"
5 "Yes "
"Tammany right olean through?"

Oompany received a permit to open
the street und install their eleotrioal
equipment thnt there was a large payment made by some oue connected
with the interest of Tammany Hull to

nothing about such a payment.
"Have, ymi during the last year received lurge sums of money from individuals which wero not your profit, or
earnings from any business?" asked
Mr.   Moss.
"No" said Mr. Croker, and he repented bis answer.
Mr. Moss said that ho had some

MUNICIPAL FARCE.
Tbe speciul meetiug of the City
Council which was held on Saturday
last was uot creditablo to an intelli
gent and progressive City like Nelson
A half dozen of school boys should
have known better. There was no ir
regularity in the proceedings which
terminated iu the resolution to trans
fer tbe City's bank uccouut. It was
(luite proper for the Finance Commit
tee to make inquiries among the banks
as to tbeir rates ;it was quite proper to
make a recommendation based on the
iuformatiou thus received, and it was
quite within the right and the duty Of
the Council to adopt the recommendation if it accorded with their views
So far everything was perfectly regular. If the letters from the bauks were
received and read at different times,
there was, as we all know, good rea
son for it. Mr. Kydd had once before
been buncoed by members of the City
Council, and he did not propose to be
n victim a secoud time; he therefore
held his letter until the time came to
consider it. There was nothing improper in this, on the contrary, it
was high testimony to his discretion,
and as no law, rule, or understanding
was violated by it, it cannot by any
conceivable construction be held to vitiate the action of the Couucil. It
may serve as a pretext for obstruction
by men resolved on obstruction, but
no oue with a grain of sense attaches
the least weight to it. Down to the
passing of the resolution, therefore, au
thorising the transfer of the account,
everything was perfectly proper and
regular.
Then followed the farce. Tbo Mayor
exercised his riglit, to veto the resolution. We nesd not stand on his man
ner of doing it. ns His Worship does
not profess to be versed iu municipal
or parliamentary procedure, and he is
nouo the worse man or citizen for
that. He did veto it, and that is
sufficient. And next he called a special meeting to consider tho veto ami ro-
consider the resolution. This was the
first blunder It wus for thoso opposed
to bis action to take steps against it,
if not satisflod to accept it. He and
bis supporters should have rested con-
t ut with the veto until challenged
But by calling the spuciul meeting
they put themselves in the position of
the assaulting party, nnd woro therefore obliged to take the lend. The
faroe was heightened, however, by no
one taking the lead on either side.
Tbtre wus a vote on the veto without
u motion to vote ou, ami a vote on a
resolution which had been passed at
the lust regular meeting of the Council,
without a motion to reconsider it! Six
grown up, bearded una, aotlng solemnly m thoir capacity us members
of the City Council, took part in this
screaming lures. For all legal effect n
could have, they might us well hnve
voted on u resolution passed nt the lust
sessiou of the French Chuinhor of
Deputies, or on the declaration of tin*
ulmimim thut, tbo moon will be full
in a few days. There is this excuse
for the members of tlm Blnanoe Oom
inittoo, thut thoy were acting on the
defensive uud merely repelled nttiick
from whatever quarter it i-iimo. Hut
bow His Worship could bo so imposed
upon as to suppose that bo wus engaged in serious business is beyond
tho reach of ordiuury imagination,
The votCH of Saturday's meeting
have no more force or effect than lust
summer's winds. There wns nothing
to vote on. The Mayor might invite
a vote on his voto, bnt no proceeding
hud beeu taken to challenge it; thut
would come up at the next regular
meeting iu the usual coursa. Tho rnso
lution adopting tbe recommendation of
the Finance Commit te whs not before
tho mooting, for no motion hud been
mndo to bring it up, and therefore it
was impossible to vote ou it. That resolution stands today, and under the
authority conferred by it, thn Finunoc
Committee may transfer the account
to thn Merchant's Hunk of Halifax
whenever tbey please, The Mayor's
veto tails to the ground, tor noting
under bad advice he liimselt asked to
have it, sustained mid it was not. It
is therefore ns dead us '.iiieen Anne,
and by the hands of its own friends
Aid.   Fletcher,   who   was and in   the
prime mover in tliese discreditable
proceedings, simply overreached himself. He killed the veto, and the resolution to transfer the nccount remains
absolutely unaffected.
We may laugh nt Hie farcical proceedings, but tbey hnve tbeir sorious
side. They bring discredit on the City.
It is humiliating enough to think that
tho Council cau engage in irregular
procedure throughout nn ontire sitting, but it is worse when we know
that the deliberate purpose of it is to
perpetrate a job ut the expense of the
ratepayers. No one is disposed to be
too severe on the Mayor who is well
understood to be as clay in tho bands
of Potter Fletcher. This latter gentleman, however, bus denlt u blow at his
own reputatioH ns a municipal representative which will require his best
behavior during the next eight
months   to repair.    And although in n

It is worse than we thought, Here

conversation in the House on tbe mm-

Sir Charles Tupper asked if tbe report
were true:
Sir Wilfrid Laurier replied that
there was uot tbe slightest foundation
for the report. There was uo modus

"Nor even proposed or discussed,"

Union at Sandon Wired Offering to Send
Men, and Ten Miners are on
Iheii Way.
Tlio AthubiiRc.ii strilco lms fallen flat,
and the Striken* now nre a vory sorry
set of men disavowed us they have
been by somo of tbe lending labor men
of the Kootenays. It will bo remembered that thoy -struck, not boeimse
then \vn(*es were boini* rednoed or
beoause tbey were asked to continue
working at a lower rnlo of wages than
the brethren in other mines, but because tho management desired to reinstate the former system of a 10 hour
shift for $11. no the government having
decided to suspend the action of the
eight-hour law. How the mon first
agreed and how many of them alter-
waids went back on their bargain is
already known to readers of The Miner
Developments yesterday showed how
completely the men were in the
wrong in listening to bad. counsels
and acting on the impulse of Iho moment. The Miuers'Unioii at Sandon bave
been hoard from und they emphatically
disavow the action of the ���\tiiah.iseii
strikers. Tho Union consider that
i bey were wrong in striking as no re-
dnotion in wages wns being made and
1 hey wero only being asked to work
the regular number of hours at the Uu-
ion wages. The Sandon Union telegraphed offering to send up as many
union miners as were wanted, thus taking an unmistakeatilo stand in the
matter. Mr. 0. \V. Riley,the foreman,
telegraphed back for ten miners who
will fill nil thf vncancies. The Snn-
dou Miners' Union aro to be congratulated ou tho position tbey have taken
which will greatly strengthen their
hold on public opinion as it is considered evidence that tbey are willing to
consider a caso on its merits aud are
not anxious of "hogging"  it.
It is hard not to be sorry tor some of
tho strikers who were undoubtedly
intimidated by the others���in fact several have asked to be reinstated���foi
though many of them were undoubl -

TWO HOURS   OF   CHOICE MUSH'.
Successful Concert Under the Anspioes
of the Presb*. torinu   Ladies Aid.
A full house and a choice programme
do uot always go together but when
they do nn enjoyable evening is the re*
suit. The happy com bi nation greeted
the Presbyterian Ladies Aid last even
ing when the concert was given in th
Nelson Opera House. It was a higl
class programme from tho openim
strains of one of Handel's trios to the
dying notes of tho National  Anthem.
The audienoe was a largo one
which insisted on supplementing the
regular selections with several encores
and the concert ended just as it should
���with the peoplo wishing there hud
been more of it.
The opening selection wus a trio by
Mr. Brougham, piano, Mr. Harris,
violin and Hon- Steiner, 'cello, Hun
del's Largo iu C, nnd Cibulku's, "An
Dieh" were played in a tnnelv musical manner. Then Mr Kydd snug
Abt's, "Good Night My Love" and
Pinsutis' "yueen of tiio Eurth,' It
wns ipiite nu ordeal to sing two such
selection in such quick BDOoesaion, but
Mr. Kydd acquitted himself admirably,
He has a very sweet tenor voice thut
never fails to plenso. Hon- Steiner wns
next on the programme, playing Reiver's Hungarian Concertn with a
skill that but few possess. He is d
'celloist of whom Nelson may well
feel proud. His execution is very fine
and the broVlth of tone that he develops
from his instrument betokens the
true artist Later on in the programme
be played Qolterninn's Adagio. Mrs
Melville Parry wns down for the 'Jewel
sung' from Faust, Herr Steiner played
u 'cello obligate. Tho charming selection was beautifully sung and Mrs.
Parry wus neeorded un enthusiastic encore. Mr. Harris followed with a well
played violin solo. A great trout was
Mrs. Brougham's singing uf Sullivan's
"Tho Lost Chord. " She wns i00om-
panied by Brougham, piano, Herr
Bteiner 'cello and, Mr. Haines, organ.
The pure timbre of her exquisitely
trained voice und h��r perfect enunciation brought out ull the chnrms of the
beautiful composition. The nccom-
p'.inimont udded to the pleasure from
tho selection. Mrs. W. A. Maodonald
scored a decidod triumph. Sho was
encored for hor singing of Hawloy's
"Beoause I Love You" und tho encore brought an enthusiastic recall.

,\ representative of The Miner yes-
icnliiy interviewed Mr. H. K Oroas*
ihiile, general   manager  of   the   Hull
Mines Co.. Limited, who has recentli
returned from a prolonged visit to
the old country. Asked as to the in
ten tion of the oo Ull nny Mr. Croasdali*
replied 1
"There will lie no ohange in tlie iiul
icy of the npinpan.v. We shall con
tiinio to develop the mine ill the sunn
systematic manner which has been
pursued I'm the last eight or ten
months."
"Was the recent flotation of debenture stock, a success, Mr. Oroflf-
daileV"    asked The Miner man.
"Yes. The entire issue was not sub
scribed,but the majority was taken up,
chiefly by shareholders. The issue
wns not underwritten, Enough money
wns raised to perforin the objects we
hnve in view."
" As far as   yon   could   judge, what
is the feeling   in   the   London   money
market   towards  British  Columbia?
was tho next question.
"Well," replied Mr. Croasdaih*.
" they look   rather   askew   at   British
Columbia just at present, You Bee,generally speaking, no money has been
made in London out of British Columbia, while some have lost money. It
tbo Le Roi begins to pay dividends
again, it may make a differ Mice.
Montreal is much more favorably dis-
posed towards this country than London,and it is nu Important money centre. Montreal people have made mom y
here, notably in the case of the War
Eagle. War Eagle stock is largely
held in Montreul. "
Mr. Croa.-daile further stated thai
the big oopper blast furnace would
start up towards the end of the month,
Mr. R. Hedley superintendent of the
smelter, was also seen, and in reply
to questions, he stated that the lead
fnruace was running smoothly, the
new water jackets, manufactured by
the James Cooper Mfg. Co . of Montreal, giving every satisfaction. These
bitter tit perfectly, and are a comph tr
sneces-*. Silver-lead bullion is being
turned out dally, nnd shipments will
be made very shortly.
A vory important strike was mode
on Saturday ou the Venus claim west
of the Athabasca on Morning mountain. Men have been employed foi
some days oleaning away the snow ami
opening up several small veins known to
exist. On Saturday work was resumed
lower down the hill, and a vein fom
feet wide wns uncovered, which bas
been opened up in places for several
hundred feet. Some extremely rich
specimens hnve been brought down,
and a sample assay, taken across the
lead, gave returns of considerably ovei
$100 in gold to the ton. The ore is n
free milling quartz. The hill is very
steep, and the vein runs up and down
the hill, so it will be possible to economically develop the property by tunnelling in on the vein, thus avoiding
any dead work. The property is under
bond to Dr. Doolittle, who represent**
a Toronto syndicate. The terms an
���fil,000 iu cash, aud the balance in
-took, it being intended to stock the
property if it turns out well. The
lirst payment ou the bond is due on
Mayl, and the second nud final pay-
��� lent on September 1.
