YESTEKDAY AT
Evidence Not Calculated to
Strengthen Either Side.
FREYCINET A WITNESS.
Largest Attendance Since Opening of Trial
to Hear Former Premier's Eridenoe-
���Mercier Still Defiant-
Rennes, Aug. 29.���Neither side was
pleased with the outcome of today's
prr ceediogs before the eourtuiartial.
Tlie Dreyfusards expected Ool. Cor-
(Her, who was deputy chief of tho intelligence department under the late
Ueut. Col. Henry, would testity that
the bordereau was received directly by
the late Col. Snndberr. Had this ex-
pectatioii been realised the testimony
.,-i.i:ii.rv boen a strong point in favor ol the accused because it would
hnve been a reply lo the auti-Dreyfus-
ards, who have nil along contended
that Henry received the bordereau, mill
forwarded it to Bandherr, a thing ho
would not have done had the bordereau
been, the Dreyfusards assert, written
by his accomplice Esterhazy, for in
thut event he would have recognized
the writing when be received the hor-
ilerenn from the Girmau embassy, and
would have suppressed it instead of
forwarding it^to Sandherr. Col. Cor
dier, however, tes'itied todny thnt he
wns absent from tho intelligence department when the bordereau arrived
but thnt he believed it was received by
Henty, Naturally this statement elated the iiuti-Drefynsards, but tho Drey
fusimls had good reason tn congratulate
themselves, upon the renuiudor of Cor-
ilir'r'e testimony; as it was wholly in
fnvor of Dreyfus. Ou the other hand
the precaution of tbe general stnff
who demanded nn opportunity to confront Ool, Cord Ier was a good piece of
tnotica from the point of view of the
nn ti-Drey fnsarfls because all the points
tbey contested were not of the first importance, yet their very uppearnnce on
the stage and their contradictions of
some of Cordier's statements left a
disagreeable impression.
The appearance of General Mercier
tn qnestion Col. Cordier came as h surprise lo many in the audience wbo bad
supposed that after last Saturday's
scene when Meroier was confronted
with Captain Freystatter, he would remain quiet, but Mercier is game to tbe
death. His action today is interpreted
ns intended to show that he is not
going to throw up the sponge. The
pnrt he played in 1894 lays him open
to arrest, nnd tbis is a constant topic
ol diecunsion in tbe cases r��nd at other
meeting places iu Rennes. There appears to be an excellent reason wby
the Government would uot take any
suoh step until tho trial is over. Col.
Jouast, president of the court martini,
could Brtjonrn the trial indefinitely if
Herder, who is an important witness, were arrested. If the trial woie
adjourned for more than 48 hours, it
wonld ^pge nud the proceedings
Would havo to bo gone over again from
thu beginning,
Todays' attendance was tho largest
Binoe the opening of the trial. Everybody was ou the qui vivo to hear tbe
testimony of M. Charles do Sanies de
1'ieyeiiict, sonato'r, former premier,and
former minister of foreign affairs,
���this adroit politician, the "Whito
Mouse ' of French politics, sat upou

I'lr'ssion of a fear.that the Drefyus ug-

President Loubet, violently protesting
against the "Gross calumny involved
in sending me for trial as a Royalist
conspirator" and demauding to be
tried without further delay. He declares that vhe Drotests and demands
of the League of Patriots are "Tbe permanent result of your (Mr. Loubet)
policy of basement in the faoe of a forger. " After referring to M. Loubet's delay in signing tbe decrees and
sending him bofoie the high conrt of

Jows: "Why wait to sign tomorrow
what your master desires? Let us

the people, and you as a defender of
the usurpations, abuses and crimes of
parliament.''.

THE   ONLY WAY OUT.
Mr Macpherson will not say that
be is at enmity with the Government
and desires its overthiow. In an interview with a Colonist correspondent
a few days ago.be declined to be led into committing himself as far as that
would take him. But in effect he said
several things thnt meant quite as
much. For example, he took the ground
that a representative should be governed less by his own views or prejudices than by the opinion held by his
constituents, and a little farther
on he expressed the belief that he and
Mr. Martin could be re-elected in Vancouver and that Mr. Cotton could not.
He could not be re-elected unless he
possessed the confidence of the majority, and as thnt majority nre against
Mr. Cotton���that is. against the Government���it follows that Mr. Macpherson cannot be in sympathy with him.
And as he pnts himself side by side
with Mr. Martin, be indicates with
sufficient clearness where he is to be
found when the time comes. Asked
the straight question, however, he declined to sny whether he was Government or Opposition, which merely
proves tbat Mr. Macpherson is no
wiser than the ostrich, and thinks by
sticking his head in the sand nobody
can   see  him.
There were some things of interest in the interview nevertheless. "What is the use of talking about Opposit.on':" was his querulous response to a question. "The
Opposition anil the Government cannot
compromise ou the issues of the day.
There will be no amalgamation, and
neither paity is strong enough to carry
on the government of the country.
Therefore there must be an arpenl to
the country. " Replying to tbis in its
editorial column, The Colonist ventures
to disagree, and expresses the belief
that "before the House meets a sufficient number of members will have declared themselves opposed to the Government to give the Opposition a sufficient majority on a vote of wa nt of con
fidence to demonstrate tbat a dissolution is not necessary." We are more
inclined to Mr. Macpherson's view of
lt.
Mr Macpherson may so declare himself; and Mr. Martin,and Mr. Higgins,
and Mr. Helgesseu, and half a dozen
others. But these men, while willing
enough to defeat the Government, will
not work with the Opposition. There
are really three parties at present,Ministerial, Opposition, and Adullamites,
neither one of which can command a
majority over the the other two. How,
theu, is it possible to form a stable
Government? There is uothing for it
but a dissolution. Political affairs
have become so mixed tbat nothing
short of a general election can straighten them out again. True, wo oau go
011 ami trust to chance for what may
turn up; but people who tuke such
grave matters seriously will not put bo
oheap an estimate ou their politics nnd
voluntarily assist in degrading t lem.
In the House as at present constituted
the Government cannot be defeated
without the aid of Mr. Martin ; is it
proposird that be shall help to form the
next oui'? We are afraid iu thut cusc
the Opposition would lose a good deal
of their popularity. And for whom
would His Honor send in the event of
defeat? Who is then to ropteseut the
Opposition?
There ih one wny out of this political maze,and that is through a dissolution. The Governmeut today is in a
minority, aud tho Lieutenant-Governor should call on it to resign or face
its fate in the Legislature. He oould
then give a dissolution to the present
Premier or the next, as he chose.
But. before there can be a next it will
be necessary for tbe lonul Opposition
leaders to get together and decido on
who shnll reprosont them. This should
suggest tho importance of immediate
{preparation, and whether it is to be
thai Kamloops convention or somo
other, the wise among them will see
that there in no timo to lose iu calling

which in a Provincial sense was
neither a luxury nor a accessary, but a

it seems to be without even au apology for a conscience. Is it association
with the Semlin crowd that is sn demoralising il?

NELSON DAILY MINEp, WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 30.  1899
MOM   BURGLARS
6m   AND    AMMUNITION   WERE
SECURED   THIS   TIME.
jhe N.lsen Hardware Oompiny's Store
Entered mid Relieved of a Oonsid-
erabla Amount of Stock.
Tlie question now is, where are these
burglaries to end? Hitherto the gen-
tlenieu who have been industriously
mnkiiiK their way into different stores
and carrying off the various amounts
o�� oaah that have been left in tills have
aontented themselves with cash, but
the latest delvelooment is that they
hBV0 gnns n step farther and provided
themselves with fourteen revolvers and
BoHioient ammunition to well nigh ex-
'terminate llio citizens of Nelson. That
puts a serious aspeot on the state of
affairs as there is no doubt now thnt
tin- burglars, who have heen entering
the leading stores nt will, are now
ready to repel nny nttnek that the police may make upon them. It was
from tho Nelson Hardware Company
thai tbe arms were socured. Sometime
during Monday night burglars broke
a pane of glass in thn rear of the store;
an arm was thrust through the hole
thus made aud the fastener that held
the window down unloosened, With
tbe window raised au easy entrance
was effected. In the front- window
was a verv attractive array of flrenrms
ani to it 111" robbers wended then
way Fourteen revolvers, will) an invoice price of $151, were carried off.
As revolvers are no good without cartridges ibe thieves scanned the sli.-he-
uti'i tbe result of their search was thai
yesterday the company was minus
snougb ammunition to keep the revolvers hot for several scores nf shots
There was money in He till but it was
not tenoned and'as far as conld be discovered nothing else in the store wus
molested. The burglars mnde then-
exit through the upon window, completely ignoring the more oomfortable
exit through tbe rear door that
might have been easily opened from
the inside.
Early yesterday morning the police
started ou tho case. Tho chief got
word of a young man that had been
offering a new revolver for sale the
night before. He was located in a
hotel but he gave the officers of the
law the temporary slip, and made
tracks to avoid erpfure But he was
closelv pursued and after an exciting
chasti'he was Innate.] iu a mom over
the store of Moirison & Caldwell. No
"gun'' was found on him when ne
was looked up and no information of a
satiable nry nature could be obtained
fmn him. However, he is in durance
vile 011 the charge of vagrancy aud it
ia confidently considered that he is h
member of the gang making a living
out of Nelson merchants. Tho revolver that he offered for salo has not
been found and wh.it he did with' it
still remains a   mystery.
The Nelson Hardware Company,
throng!) its manager, Mr. Ueorge H.
Beer, lias offered one hundred dollars
for information that will lead to the
arrest and couviclion of those who
stole the firearms frum tho company's
store. Whether or not this reward
will lead to a satisfactory solution if
the hurglnr trouble remains to be
soon. The police are doing their utmost to ferret out the culprits but thus
far their efforts have, not been crowned
with success. In a town of this size
the patrol men must be kuown to
those who wish tu keep their eyes on
them und it should not be n difficult
matter for anyone to "give them the
sliu" when a burglary is contemplated.
About the ouly solution is for the
iiiernbants to fix their doors and windows so that the gang uow infesting
the City will not, bo able to gain an
entrance to any of the stores.
Today the man arrested yesterday
Will oome bef 1 re tho magistrate and
nay evidence tho police havo to offer
will be presented. He says that a man
who will liberate him will appear but
who this man may JJbo no ono but he
knows. Meanwhile yon might look
out for auyoue who offers you a revolver for Hale.
JACK   HAZZAKD    BOUND  OVER.
The Preliminary   Hearing in the Banning Murder Trial.
Hepnblio, Aug. 28.��� Jack Hnzzard,
wIid has been under arrest here for the
murder of William Banning, had Imh
preliminary hearing today and was
bound over for trial, with $1,(300 bail.
Banning was murdered Sunday afternoon, Jnly 98, while leading a catalogue on the bank of Granite crook on
tbe edge of the town. His assailant evidently slopped up behind him aud with
soine sharp instrument pounded in the
head of the viotim. The murder waa
a most mysterious one, as no motive
ejnild be discovered for the crime,
"wo gold watches and $85 in money
were found on the body. Banning was
a quiet young man of steady habits
and the customary woman in tbe case
theory does not apply to this affair.
Sinoe the murder his cousin, W.
G. Kllis, has been looking into the
ease, nnd 8t his suggestion the sheriff
arrested Heizzarri, who was Banning's
room or bunk mate ut the time.
fho hearing todny developed that in
the garret of Hnzznrd's cabin Kllis
bed found a pick, upon which were
siiine inyBconons red stains and a sin-
gle hair. That was the evidence chieflv
used today for biudiug   Hazzard   over".

To the Editor of The Miner :     Sir,-
In the Miner of the 2(lth and under
the above heart will found a leading
nrlice icferring to the lntest report of
the Medical Superintendent of the Hospital for the Insane at Westminster
With reference to Nelson as a site for
a new buiding, your city lias a strong
claim by virtue of situation. Seeing
that the insane cases are increasing so
rapidly it is of the greatetst importance at due attention be given by the
Government to the cure of tbe our-
able cases. Dr. En'est A. Hall now of
Toronto has stated that a large percentage of the presont so-called incurable
oases can be cured aim ha has so far
been successful in restoring to sound
mind and body a number of female
pntients from Victoria. Although such
cures must have beeu known to Dr.
MoKeohnie P. 0. lie stated during the
last sitting of the Legislature that
there was not a, man in the Province
of British Columbia capable to take
the position at tho ARylum iu Westminster abont to be filled.
It is to be regretted that Dr. E. H.
Hall should have been passed over
after all his years of labor and fighting
before he was successful in' gaining
admission to the hospital and to obtain
the assistance of some medical men
to assist in the treatment of the first
cases. As further evidence as to tbe
value of the statement above referred
to by the learned President of the
Council, Dr. H-ll bas since heen
awarded the prize for his essay on in-
sanity read before representative medical men nf die Dominion of Canada. If
a medical man should be required in
the future it is to lie hoped that, the
powers that be, will not send outside
for one while there may be available in
the Province the best man in the Dominion.

Kaffir Market. Notwithstanding
such serious impedimenta as tbe uncertain political outlook nnd a marked
shortage in the supply of native labor
the Transvaal Mining Industry continues to make splendid progress, a
fresh important record having been
achieved by the output for July. The
pioductiou of the Witwatersraud
was 468,474, ounces and of the outside
districts 22.01U ounces; a total of
478,493 ounces This compares with a
total output for June of 467,271 ounces

Australian Market. Iu striking contrast to the Kaffir Market business iu
the West Australian Market opened
very active after tho holidays, with a
further general advance, large colonial
and continental -irders being iu evidence. The activity of this market
stands out in marked contrast to tbe
dull surroundings of departments.
and it is evident that the higher
range of values recently established
will be permanently maintained.
Lake View Consols bave been a very
firm market, lvanhoe have again taken
a jnmp. Standard Explorations are
strong, aud London and the Globe are
steady, while Oalidonia Copper have
been strong at three quarters prelum on account of their successful
issue which I understand has been
over subsciibed.
British Columbia. A quiet tendency
still prevails in this market, notwithstanding an improvement in the output of Le Roi winch have eased off.
This, however, is likely to be but a
temporary movement and a sharp rebound cannot be far off. They nre quoted uow at ��7. British Amerioan
shares are steady, and it shonld not
be forgotton in connection with these
that two important mining companies
are about to be floated for this corporation. Ymiis have not moved on
the Jnly output and Velvets have been
quiet.
Copper: The market in copper mines
has beeu veiy strong iu consequence
of the fresh improvement in that metal
which bas risen to   ��76.
New Zealand Mines: Stagnation
still prevails iu tbis part with the exception of slight improvements in
Waihi and Tnitapu, all the other shares
are about tbe same.

WHY?
DESBRISAY & CO.
SOLE AGENTS FOR NELSON.
To the Editor:
In tho Nelson Daily Miner erf the
20th and with reference to the collection of ores for the Paris Exposition
it will be seen that the colleotoi Mr.
Kolerlson is not receiving due assistance from mine owners and managers.
Juduing from tl.e uttitnde of some
large companies who arr1 purohnsing
everything within   easy   sight and not
making any attempt to commence
work, one is inclined to feel that thu
object of such corporations are to get
hold of as much desirable properly as
possible ut the lowest cost.
If the managers will respond tn the !
call of the oolleoSor at onecthe smaller
fry���who lcive not sullieient capital at
command to make mines of their
olaims Bnd are holding them for sale ���
will not i>e in a ]i anion to remind
The Miller that the objeot erf those
not contributing, i��. Bn far as possi le
to prevent tin influx of capital iu order that good undeveloped claims will
In come a drug on the market and that
further properties may he purchased at
ridiculonsly low   prices.    It does mean !
something for British  Colombia  that
Mr. Koherfson   shall pel together such ;
a display of ore tbat will command the ;
attention of the mining world.
Wheu   the   collection     ot    exhibits'
was beintc made for the World's  Fair
nt Chicago the   writer felt it to be his |
dnty to send   a   case   of   horso   slue;'.,
not expecting to   even get a   prize but
to show to the   outside   world llml   B,
O. had something besides timber,snow
und rain. To the honor of the Province we were awarded tho silver
medal. The Miner blowing out tbe
liucNt samples of ore every day is not
apt to plaoe proper estimate ou what
he is producing but if you have nny -
thing either rich or altiaclive get it
to Mr. Robertson and let the Kootenays
at least be representotd. If the poot
man sends along his ore the rioh man
will oome  from   France  to buy  the
claim. If the largo corporations withhold from assisting in making the exhibit a good one tne very rich men are
sure to see lhe point. Of two evils
choose the least and send your ore.
