But on the Whole a Favorable Day for Dreyfus
LABORI TO THE FORE-
Ootrscl ''Makes Hares" of the Witnesses
for  the Prosecution.��� Socialist
Leader on the Oaae-
Rennes, Ang. 23.���Maitre Labori
and Madame Labori were present at
the opening of the court martial at the
Lycee at 0:80 this morning. The
session begun with the testimony of
niiiini witnesses including Comptroller
Roy nud Major Drevill. The fourth
witness, M. Dutreuil, describing him-
nelt us a private gentleman, proved
must entertaining, and moreover, pave
Labori Hie first opportunity of malting
u few roiuts in favor of Dreyfus.
Dnbreuil, "no of M. (Joesnay
du Beanrepaire's witnesses told, a gos
uiping story of meeting Dreyfus at the
house of nn acquaintance, (M. Bob-
son), in 1804, when DreyfuB was lieutenant, nnd of seeing the latter oonyers
ing with n man described to witness ns
11 German attache. This wns the sum
of Lis testimony, L��buri took Dubre-
oil in liiui'l nnd beimtifully oseettuined
Hint lie inily knew the visitor wns a
German attache berar.se he wi s told
wi nnd did not know whether he was a
military or civil attache.
After the Dubreuil testimony, Captain Vnlnnnl deposed that at Ihe end of
May IRflH, Major Lanth came ont of
Ool, linn nils room exclaiming.
"Ah, All. nevei 111 this world."
When witness nskcil him what wns the
matter, the major replied: "He
wants me to certify that it 1b the handwriting of so and so. I will (vilify
nclhiug."
The silling if the court martial today wns comparatively uneventful.
The depositions wore not productive of
any really tlnilling incidents. The
Bjstomatio production of trash which
the prosecution deems profitable to inflict on tlie judges and which the latter accept us evidence was proceeded
with. Much of the Iidionlous testimony of the morning was devoted to
nn attempt to blast Dreyfus' private
ehuructer, sthongli wheu Maitres La
boii anil Uemange had finished with
the witnesses, their bubbles and tittle-
tattle w ere badly pricked. Much of
the time was occupied in reading tho
testimony  of Esterbaay    and  Muda-
moisellfl Pays before the court of cassation, dnring which many of the audience loft; tho court. M. Labori again
distinguished himself in laying hare
the weak points of the evidence. Ho
was less fierce, however, than yesterday, though quite aggressive enough
I" nnmsn the Intent hostility or the
judges whioh showed itself in various
little ways. M Labori is no favorite
either with Major Oarriere and the
latter makes no Serious otfort to conceal his feelings toward the lawyer.
M, Labori boro little trace of the
sffeots of tbo ontrngo upon bira.
Madame Rnjune, the Actress, wns
again an interested spectator in court
today, especially when M. Labori was
"a his feet ond his voice was vibrating
thlough the hall.
During some of the depositions M.
Labori appeared very nervous. He was
unable to rest still in his seat, twitching his Angers and shaking the papors
i�� his bunds and was almost too im-
patient to wait till the witnesses concluded thoir testimony.
The only dangerous opponent of
Dreyfni todny was Gon. Gonu,, who
mounted tho stnge with quiok step nnd
apparently light, heart, but he left
It hndly mauled by M. Labori.
Gen, Gonz began by declaring ho
name to defend his honor against those
'Drivelling" against him. But when
hin
day proved certainly a poor one for the
general staff.
Two good sairplea of the men put
up to sully Drefyus' oharaoter were
the third and fourth witnesses First
Major Du Chatelet repeated an nlleg-
ed conversation of D-eyfns regarding
a lady at whose house Dreyfus is alleged to have Rambled and lost money.
But when cross-examined, Dn Chat-
clot's memory failed liiin entirely, especially when asked the name of tbe
mily, the strei t she resided ou and the
sum Dreyfns lost.
Vext M. Dubreuil showed equally
astounding forgetfu loess on essential
points cf his evidence ooucerning Dreyfus' acquaintanceship with a foreign
attache, arid when M. Der.mngexapped
his successful examination of these
points by promising to show M. Du-
breuil's record in the courts is fur from
clear, tho witness left the stand badly
discredited.
The correspondent of the Associated
Press talked during tho afternoon with
M James, the socialist leader, who
with M. Mathieu Dreyfus sees Maitre
Labori every dny sftcr the session aud
who is acquainted with the entire tactics of the  detonce.    M.    Jaures said:
"I am convinced that Dreyfus will
bo acquitted. Ho mnst bo acquitted,
for no new facts have been brought up
against him. Tho generals I believe,
are going to make their last stand on
Bertillons system, wdiich they intend
to submit as proving Drefyus guilty.
In'elligent men laugh at it but it is
very ingenious and has the merit, in
the eyes of generals, of being incomprehensible to an ordinary man and
thus calculated to impiess him, if supported by the puppits of the general
staff."
Bertillon's theory has already been
introduced by some of tho military
witnesses, who deolare their confidence
iu it The trial in my belief will Inst
about another 20   days. "
London, Aug. 24.��� Offioial permission to appear at the Rennes court martial, if cited, has been, (according to
tbe Home correspondent of the Daily
Mail) granted to.Col. Fanizzaidi, formerly Italian military attache in Paris,
wbo recently denied, iu a communication to the Figaro, tho statement of
General lionet, in his evidence at Rennes, that Panizzardi addressed a report to Signor Rossmon, formerly ambassador to France, to the effect that
Col Schwartzkoppon. former German
military attache in Paris had relations
with Dreyfns.
Paris, Aug. 23.���The Figaro gives
nu extract from a letter written just
before he died, by Signor Rossman,
the Italian ambassador to France, to
whom Col. Panizzardi is said by General Rogetto havo aldressed a letter
implicating DreyfuB. The following is
the significant senteuoe: "I have only
oue regret and that is to die without
having seen the innocenco of tho un
fortunate Dreyfus established."
A LABORI LIBKL SUIT.
Rennes, Ang. 2!!.-Maitre Labori
has decided to prosecute La Croix, one
of Iho leading clerioal organs, and La
Libre Parole together with M. Dru-
mont; proprietor, and director of the
latter paper personally, for declaring

London, Aug. 23.���Sir Thomas Lip-
ton in an interview with a reporter
of the Association Press today said :
"I have read the remarks of American
yachting experts ma:\y of whom have
seen Shamrock through their telescopes But while these good people
know nil about yachts, they havo no
data upon which to base their opinions, except patriotic wishes Any
man knows that Shamrock has done
nothing yet beyond wear down Britannia ou time allowance and pretty
easily. So, to whittle Shamrock's
chances down to the luck of heavy
weather is beside the mark, for in my
opinion, Fife has designed an all
round yacht. Tbere is nothing absurd in the socrets maintained. We
hove reasons for it. It is quite true I
asked the Prince of Wales to witness
oue of the races. No one would be happier than he to accept the invitation
but his engagements prevented bim.
We may yet have distinguished guests
but I am not nt liberty to mention
their names.''
Continuing. Sir Thomas expressed
great satisfaction with t ham rock's
crew. He said: "Even now every
man knows his station aim his duty.
With two skilled captains we shall
get tbe highest yacht niunsliip. Tbo
Americans kuow my feeling. Wo
want to win, and if we do, I believe
thoy will shoot as loud as if Columbia
won. for our opponents are sportsmen.
If Shamrock is successful, no doubt
the Americans will iisoto the occasion
and next year make us exert our very
best effons lo retain the cup. "
New York, Aug. 2il.���On board tho
Cunard line steamer Anrania, which
nnivedj lime todoy were two carpenters from the Fife yards, Fairlie, Scot-
laud. Thoy came over io assist in getting Shamrock in trim for her com-
iug races, with Columbia. Their
names nre William Crawford, foreman
at the Fife yards and David Fife, a
cousin of William Fife, tbe designor
of Shamrock.

Santiago, do Cuba, Aug. 28. ���Five
men are dead and tet wounded as the
result of a fight last night between
gendarmes aud disappointed Cuban
soliders at Cuivitas. three miles from
: Santiago, where the payment of Cuban
; troops is progressing. Five thousand
j Cubans had gathered there to receive
I pay, and after three days ouly 580
bad been paid. Thousands who had
been disappointed at other points had
come to Cuevitiis as the last place of
payment in the Proviuce. The imperfect lists cai.scd great dissatisfaction
and a rumor circulated yestirday, that
tho ^paymasters would leave today,
alarmed tho nun who had not been
paid. They begau to collect in groups
and to show their aunoyance. Finally their threats became sorions.
Captain Baliat, with 20 gendarmes,
wus present to preserve order among
the applicants and tbe United States
troops protected Ool. Moale, the officer
having charge of the payments. Suddenly Capt. Baliat, who was mounted,
was surrounded by a mob, struck by
stones and bottles and shot iu tho arm.
His men promptly fired a volley into
the mob, three persons being instantly
killed anil 13 wounded, two of whom
died this morning. Col. Moale's
guard promptly surrounded the money
office, but took no part in tho fighting.
For a few minutes there was a
lively conflict, carbines aud matchets
beiiiK used freely.
Captain Baliat, was the only gendarme wounded. All the dead wero
colored soldiers, This morning payment was resumed under a heavy
gourd. There aro rumors that a force
is being org nized to attack the pay
offloo but: these aie probably unfounded.

Toronto, Aug. 23.���It looks very
muoh as if Canada's Cup race would
not be finished in tho time allowed today. The boats did not start until
12:25 owing to light wind. By 1:80
tho boats had gone only throe miles,
Genessee having again secured the
lead, but very slightly. At jthis rate
the race will, however, be unfinished
and will not count. The wind is still
very light. Crowds are round the
newsoaper offices watching the bulletins " Tho only way of obtaining news,
however, is by tbe homing pigeons,
whioh bring messages from the judges
boat to the oity abont every bulf hour.

against the seven Canadian fisbiiiK vessels iti American wafers. The instructions were bused on a careful investigation by the United States district attorney, who roportnd that, in
this instance, he was sitisfied tho fishermen wero uot international poachers in American waters. Tho.British

Washington, Aug. 23.���That tho
campaign in tho Phillipines is to be
pushed vigorously and promptly, s
evident from the remark Seoretary
Root made to the reporters today. He
was determined, he said, that every
man belonging to the 20 regiments of
volunti ers now t eing recruited shall
oat bis Christmas dinner in that conn-
try.
This statement was bronght by a
reference to the published report that
ten of these regiments wero to be held
in tho United States as a reserve
foroe, Regarding the reports that
General Merrit has been at Luke
Champlain in conference with tho president, "is to succeed General Otis, iu
command of the troops in the Philippines, Seoretary Root was non-committal. Ho evaded all questions on this
point and deolined to make any positive statement whatever in regard to
the subject.
The state department has been in
formed, through a diplomatic ohannel,
that Goneral Otis, has applied the Chinese exclusion laws to the Philippines. The information was a snr
prise to tho authorities here, both state
und mil.' t.-vj, ���� Vc* tfttfttenjaa^aafltt,
under consideration Ior eoao time"
and it was not known" tbat General
j Otis had put the exclusion laws into
foroe. The Chinese Government has
shown more anxiety as to the oou'se of
this Government toward the Chinese
In the Philippines than towards
thoso in Cuba, or other parts of the
world, mainly because Philippines
aro so near China and largo numbers
of Chinese aro already established there.
They carry on the bulk of the retail
trade, have au extensive quarter in
Manila and send out travelling salesmen,onrry paoks to tlio remote interior
of the islands. The only action taken
hero as .to the Chinese exclusion has
been tho ruling that they aro not n
part of tbo Immigration Act aud do
not apply to Cuba or Porto Rico.
Mr. A. C. Sutton, barrister of Grand
Forks, is in the city, says tho Rossland Miner. He reports that tho Canadian Pacilio is into Cascade Oity and
that ties have been ltiid for two miles
west of there. In addition to this the
grade is completed from Cascade City
to Grand Forks und there remains
but little to do to complete tho road to
the latter city but to lay ihe track and
to t ridge the river at a point three-
quarters of a mile from   Grand   Forks.
Ic will take about five or six days to
construct this bridge. At tho outside
it will not be n\er 12 or 13 days before the rood will be finished into
Grand Forks. Jnst as soon us the necessary accommodations uro afforded u
number of mines thero will commence
to ship.
"Work on tbo smelter is making good
progress. A large number of men arc
at work and the grading for the Hume
hns been completed, and the foundation for the smelter is being constructed. The capacity of the smelter ar first
is to bo 500 tons pel day, but it is being constructed in such a way that it
can be increased if necessary, so thai
8,000 tons per day may bo smelted.
President Miner und some of tbo other
lending officers of th'i smelter oom-
p;iuy,;bavo been ijj Grand Forks for
the past six weeks overlooking the
operations on tbe smelter.
"There has beeu an especially important strike mode on the Mountain
View in Summit camp, which is under bond to Montreal parties An im
menso copper ledge, which assays 17
por cent copner, has been uncovered,
nnd those who hold the bond feel certain that they have uncovered a bonanza.
"Grand Forks is growing very rapidly, real estate has advanced 800 per
trent in the past six months, a Still,mill
hotel has been opened, und buildings
are going up in all directions. Ono
loan company has made loans to the
extent of 160,000 there anil there are
two others which have put out an
equal amount, and it is estimated that
fnllv $200,000 worth of buildings havo
been erected in Grand Forks during
the last year.
"Debentures aro now being flouted
to tho extent of $100,000 for the purpose of improving tho electric light
and the water plants. Besides tbis local improvement debentures aio to bo
floated to the extent of $15,000 and the
money is to he devoted tu the grading
of streets and the laying dowu of sidewalks
"There was a good sized real estate
deal there the other day when Mayor
Manly sold ont the Victoria Hotel, together with the two lots on which it
stands, to Messrs. Charles OummiugS
and others for $15,000."

D. J.   BEATON, Kdliorund Manager,
A  SOUNU SENTIMENT.
The  Victoria    Tunes.   Ministerial,
says: "Kvon The Times might In
convinced that till suggested Cabinet
would lie an improvement on the pres
OUl one. us it bus never claimed thai
all tbe virtues were centred in the
Government now ruling British Columbia. But Tbe Times will he excused if it refus.-s to buy a fig in f
poke The oountry wants the names
of the proposed deliverers." This i^
(juotc'l and the seutiineiit of it endorsed by The Province, Vanoonver,
also Ministerial, But so will any
sensible newspaper endorse it. Wo do
not know the exact composition of the
"suggested Cabinet," but understand
that the objection of The Times is to
the proposition that the present Government should be defeated at sight,
lenving the country to take chances as
to its successors.
Certainly uo mistake can be made in
defeating the present Government,
for a more incapable ono it would be
impossible to form. But it is not necessary to do these things hlindly, nor
is it customary. The people have a
right to know who ore coming in. if
they put the present meu out. They
may uot want the names of all the
new Ministers placarded on the walls,
with the portfolio assigned to eacb.
That would be a detail with which
tiny would be perfectly willing to dispense. But they must know the leader.
A lender is always in evidence. That
is the rule everywhere under British
Parliamentary Government. If the
people have confidence in the lender,
they will bare confidence in his surround ing himself wilh colleagues of
tbe right sort. They must also know
the general line of policy the new
men propose to adopt. We believe
thev are thoroughly dissatisfied with
tire policy of those whom an unfortunate accident has placed in power, and
would gladly embrace the opportunity
to disavow it. But they would have
good reason to complain if another set
of men offered to take their places
who hud no policy, good, bad, or indifferent.
The people are ready to defeat tbe
present Government the moment it
oonies out into the open. But they
must know something of those who
will be responsible for the next one.
There can be no buying of pigs iu
pokes. If the Opposition present themselves leaderless and without a policy,
the people might resent the discourtesy by allowing the men wbo are now
in to stay in, It would be a very natural and proper action to take. Signs
will fail past all former experience if
there is not a general election beforo
many months. At the present moment
the Opposition are without a leader,
and are believed to bo otherwise in a
state of disorganization. They are by
no means prepared for a contest. The
people could not vote with any degree
of satisfaction, for they would not
know what would happen if they were
to turn the present men out. Thut is
not the kind of a situation thut should
exist in the face of a general election,
and if the Opposition are blessed
with even second-rate wisdom they
will see that it is amended without
loss of time.
THE PUZZLE   OF THE DAY.
A good many thousands of the six
millions and over that wero votod as
railway subsidies are intended for enterprises that are being promoted by
Messrs. Mackenzie and Maun. There
aro two bits of road in Western Ontario, between Fort William and Fort
Frances and between Fort Frances and
the Manitoba boundary, that are absorbing a good round sum. Then
thore is another appropriation for an
extension of the Dauphin road westerly
tnwurds Prince Albert. The Manitoba
Legislature is helping the same men
to build from Winnipeg to the eastern
boundary, to connect with thn Ontario
and Rainy Lak'. When the subsidies
wero up in Parliament, member after
member expressed the fear that Mackenzie and Mann meant tho 0. P. R.,
and that the 0. P. R. wero really buncoing the Dominion out of money to
build a second transcontinental line.
No one appeared to have the lenst
doubt that all this subsidising and nil
this building meant another line clear
across the continent. Newspapers bo-
came disturbed, ns well as members of
Parliament. Oue of the latest to discuss the matter is The Monetary
Times, Toronto, whioh asks, "What
are wo to think?" and then crntinues:
"It is difficult to believe that Mackenzie and Mann could do what they
arc doing without some such powerful
support nslhat of the C, P. R. They
might get subsidies, of course; perhaps
thev are, indeed they seem to be, peculiarly qualified for  that   work;   and
of tbe Canadian public is that two railways, extending to the Pacific should
iK,t be under the control of one gtchi
monopolising company. And practically the same thing as ououess of control may be done through traffic arrangements, which the Government is
willing to grant "
The Miner does not profess to be wiser
fhriu iis contemporaries, bnt it is very
strongly disposed to believe dial Mao-
kenize ami Mann and tbe C. P. R. are
not one. It believes besides that Mackenzie and Munn are building across
the continent, nd will uot stop until
they get to rhe Pacific Bnt it is
UOt SO much their intention we desire
to bring into notice, as the unusual
und very extraordinary faot that these
liieii are engaged in huge railway enterprises, the cud and aim of whioh are
the sport of speculation, Parliament
is voting them millions, and the country does not know the object of their
building, Never before was counsel
so well kept Mr. Mackenzie, the ruling spirit iu the enterprise, must bo n
wonderful man. and we shall not be
surprised if moro ��� e beard of him in
the future. A man who can build n
railway from the Great Lakes to the
Pacific, and leave tbo country in doubt
of his intention, possesses qualities
that   deserve to be ranked as great.

THE LACROSSE SQUABBLE.
Vlotnira Timei   Answers   tbe Charges I
Made by Mr. Wright.
Tho Viotoria Times devotes a great
den] of.space to the report in tbe Vancouver papers ot an interview with
Hmry Wright, manager of the Nelson
Lacrosse team wbo chnrgtri tho Victoria lnerosso men with '"cinching"
Ilin Nolson team. It was certainly a
grave mistake to make any such statements no matter whut truth there
may be in them, aud a still graver
mistake to make tbem to the papers
of another town. After publishing
the interviews The Miner explains matters satisfactorily as follows:
Mr. A. .1. Dallain, secretary of the
J. B. A. A., wheu shown tbe above by
n Times man this morning, was exceedingly surprised that Mr. Wright
Bhould have authorized such n statement. The arrangements for tbe
mulch were made by Mr. Dallain at
the request of Mr. Wright. It had
been explained to the Nelson team
thut it was impossible to have the
mutch played in Victoria on a Saturday, other engagements conflicting,
and it was also explained that tbe gate
"ii any other week day would certainly
he small. Notwithstanding this, the
Nelson team, through their manager,
Instructed Mr. Dallain to go ahead
with the arrangements and offered  to
play here for the net proceeds of the
gale, they paying the rental of the
ground and tlie cost of advertising,
these stipulations aro contained iu
the correspondence.
The gross proceeds of the gate were
168, not |70 as the Province says: the
Bat proceeds handed to the Nelsou
team were $70.
As to the complimentary tickets,
Mr. Wright was not charged Jl.715 for
the five tickets given him. but for the
printing of all tbe, complimentary tickets, which is a legitimate item in the
advertising account, ho   was   charged.
Regarding the entertainment of the
visitors.it had been intended that they
Should he taken up the Gorge on tho
evening of the Arion Club's open-air
ooncert, and Mr. Dallain weut to considerable trouble to obtain boats for the
Purpose. The concert was postponed
"v the Arion Olnb. and then it was
proposed to entertain the Nel on men
J the J. R, A. A., olub house. In
b" meantime, however, Mr. Wright
talked very disparagingly regarding
""'���I. B. A. A. in hotel corridors and
wound the city, and the management
thought Mr. Wright thus rendered
nirnsMf beyond the sphere wherein
'"''Unary oourtosv extends, and the
Proposed entertainment was culled off.
As to the advertising in the n'ty
I'aperN. Mr. Dallain's understanding
WW Mr. Wright was that the Nelsou
team, deriving all (he benefit from the
Kate Would pay all advertising, nnd as
, ���""ternary, be paid the newspapers
"j the advertising on account of the
vimturs.   To   endeavor to cast   a  slur
upon the newspapers as the Province
does, is distinctly mean and decidedly
surprising.
Perhaps Mr. Wright will learn before be brings another team to the
OOltst that whatever consideration ho
expects to receive should be stated in
advance The J, B, A. A. certainly
did as much as they were asked and
more The extra help at the grounds
was paid for by the J, B. A. A. as was
every other expense which the Nelson
manager did not expressly state be desired to be borne by liis   team.
The newspaper reports to whioh
The Times objects are as follows:
Vancouver Province: It seems a
strange thing that no athletic organization which has ever bad occasion to
visit Victeriu has ever bad a good word
to say of the treatment they received
there ur have ever expressed a desire
to again enjoy the "hospitality" of
the sporting fraternity of the oapital
oity. The J. B. A. A. is well-known
in local sporting circles as a "cinching" organization. Unless its teams
can get the best of any particular deal
they ar verv apt to ant like spoilt children and refuse to play
The Nelson laoroBse club's western
tour had Viotoira included in its itinerary and now Manager Harry Wright
is wondering how any of his men
managed to get out. of the town with
a copper in their pockets. The gate
there was under the auspioes of the ,1.
B. A. A , which in common oourtesy
should have made all arrangements
for their reception and defrayed any
incidental expenses in connection with
the mutch.
To the surprise of tho Nelsoniles,
however, tbey discovered that-Viotoria
hospitality means tbat visitors pay
for all tbey get and a little more. The
newspapers there regarded the touring
lacrosse men as their legitimate prey
and all of them including the little
Globe, fastened on tn Harry Wright
as beluga "good thing." He was
compelled to pay all the papers for the
advertising inserted bv the .7. B. A.
A. men, pay for the dodgers, for the
streamers across one of the streets, and
even for the five complimentary tickets which he received. These nlso cost
him tl 7", whereas by paying at the
gate tbe s line tickets could have been
purchased for (1.95. After all the
expenses had been tagged on tho Nelson
manager tho sport-loving people of
Victoria turned out to see tbe match
lo the extent of 470 worth, about half
of which was eaten up by the expenses
beforo mentioned
An excursion had heen "arranged"
for the visitors, bnt at the last moment
thev were informed it had tn be postponed. Under the circumstances Mr.
Wright did not feel inclined to pay for
a steamer to take bis hosts out for a
S'lil and accordingly there was no excursion.
All tbe Nelson men returned from
Naniiinio this morning on the Joan and
the foregoing particulars were obtained from their manager, who added
that in Nanaimo and in Vnncouver
thev bad all been shown ovury consideration.
Mr Wright says nil his men have
enjoyed the trip will nnd that another
visit to tbe coast is almost a certainty
next vear Bnt he remarked that unless the clnb should happen to be well
provided witb money, Victoria would
probably1 have to be left out of the
programme as it costs too much to en-
tetain the members of tha J. B. A. A.,
and at the same time provide pabulum
for the huugrv  newsDapers  there.
Vancouver World : Manager Wright
tbis morning did not rcake any bones
about talking for publication of the unkind treatment in several ways that
had been accorded the visitors at Victoria. Iu tbe first place, the people
there turned out only to the extent of
*70 gate, while they had a tUOo gate
in Vancouver, and the whole arrangements were badly managed. The Nelson men were called upon to pay $22
for advertising, while in Vancouver
nnd Nanaimo the papers either did this
part of the entertainment free of
charge or else the clubs arranged locally for the settlement. There was
one item, for instance, of $2 for hanging tho sign for the game, that should,
of conrse, have been attended to by
Victoria. Then the general reception
was very poorly looked after, and Mr.
Wright savs that altogeher their visit
to tbe capital was unsatisfactory to a
very   great degree.
SPLENDID MUSIC.
coloring and taste. The nrcbeitral
effects were heightened by the employment of two double bass in these numbers and in a Chopin waltz. The rest
of the programme was made up (if
marches by Harris and Sousa, selections trom Sullivan's "Gondolier," a
humorous sketch by Byrne, and Lieut.
Oodircd's Nautical Kmtastia "England aud America. "
The artistic performances of Mr.
Redfern and Mr. Kettlewell, tbo flute
and cornet soloists, coniiipensated to a
great extent for the absence of. Miss
Beverly Robinson, who was prevented
by illness from appearing at either
the afternoon or evening concert. Mr
Redfern's number was an air, varied
tiy Clinton, and Mr. Kettlewell gave
an arrangement of oue of Cowen's
songs.

Lieut.   Dan Godfrey and  His  British

A Buffalo paper thus speaks of the

better factor tbat Lient. Dan Godfrey
and his British Guards Band it would
be impossible to employ. With due
'appreciation of the many splendid organizations in this country and elsewhere, it may be stated that Lieut.
Godfrey's body of musicians excels any
other of its kind now in existence.
And the large audiences tbat attended
the performance give in Music Hall

uot slow to realise the fact. Suoh vigorous baudclapping and shouts of approval have seldom been hoard here iu
connection with n musical event.
Lient Godfrey is every inch a soldier,
His bearing is erect aud his manner
qniet firm. He wastes no needless
energy in his work, and it is evident
that bis musicians are not only well
disciplined, but also, diligently and
skillfully trained. Withal he is refreshingly modest and unostentatious.
Under the leadership of such a man,
the most ordinary material would be
shown to the best advantage. With
some of the finest Bolo performers of
England at his command, Lient. Godfrey produces effects that would be
highly gratifying if accomplished by a
well equipped, ably directed orchestra.
Instead of observing due order of the
programme, Lient. Godfrey opened the
concert last evening by playing "The
Star Spangled Banner" which bad
been assigned to a place among tbe last
numbers, together with th.' national
hymn of England. It was superbly
given. The first Btrains were wholly
lost in the unrestricted applause of
the audience, and the last notes had
hardly died away when the demonstrations were renewed.
Rossini's overture to "William Tell"
and an arrangement of the prmcinal
solos and choruses from Gounaud's
"Faust,"were played with remarkable  evenness of tone,   brilliancy of
AT THE HOTELS.

Tbere is considerable development
on Perry Creek, on tho well known
large quartz vein whioh thev have in
that section. Messrs. Neul aud othtrs
havo bonded the Estrella group their,
for $1160,000. The property, familiarly known as the Paris   Park group,
winch  is owned  by Fatriok MoCunn,
und which is located on Ihe north fork
of Kalso creek, has boi n bended by Mr.
George Hughes and others for $75,000.
This is a silver-lead property of considerable merit.
The Minnesota Silver Oompany,operating the lvanhoe group, near the Slocan .stur. has ordered u five-drill compressor plant. This will Le used iu
the driving of u 4000 foot tuunol to tap
tbe vein at much lower depth than

will be room in it for two trucks and
it will be lighted throughout with

brought iu in sections and will be
packed on the backs of mules to tho
site where the   plant is to   be erected.
The Copper Queen on Toad Mountain is receiving ccnsidiorable outside attention. The Spokane Chronicle
Bays:
The Oopper Queen, ou Toad mntin
tain, British Columbia, is nt present
considered tho most promising, and
on it the most development work has
been done. On this claim an open cut
lx fept long ^has boon made, from
whioh a croBscnt of ^0 feet runs to tho
straight tunnel, which is in 126 feet.
A the end of the crosscut and beginning of the straight tunnel, lead No. 1
is encountered. This is two feet wide,
and is n white quatrz, rnnuiug high
in copper values, assaying as high as
$75. At io feet iu on the tunnel stringers of decomposed quartz were encountered, assaying $10.40 in gold, but no
assay for copper bus been made. At
12(i feet the main lead was struck, and
is from three to four feet iu width of
white und gray quartz mixed,
sprinkled through with copper. On
this lead a drift in a southerly direction is now being run, and has already
reaohed B distance of 00 feet in ore all
the way. Tho management is ho
greatly pleased with the success already obtained that it is its intention
to proseeute the work vigorously, and

E. O. Eeuu of Winnipeg is becoming
largely interested in tho mining development of East Kootenay. He basse
cured several valuable claims und is
engaged iu developing them. Mr.
Egun has great fuith in the mineral
resources of the district. It was he
wbo first brought tbo Rig Chief prominently before the public, anil his recent bonding of the Golden Fleece and
Stanley in tho Trucey crook district
bus emphasized still further his belief
in Knst Kootenay mines. His latest
acquisition is the bonding for $10,000
of the one-half interest owned by R.
Rogers ill three claims known as the
Emerald group, on tho north fork of
Boulder creek, adjoining tho Big
Chief group, The ore is simiilar in
all respects to that found on the surface
of the Big Chief; it carries free gold
which is discernible in the rock.
These claims are reoeut locations, having been recorded in May last. Tho
other half interest is owned by Mr.
Egun and William Curlin.

Rossland Mine.". If, as our old oopy-
book headlines taught us to believe,
the events of the tuturo are to be foreseen in their shadows, the mining
men of this camp may look for an an
nouiicenient that will prove of the utmost importance ns a factor in tbe profitable working of the mines. Mining
men iu general are aware of the fact
that since the blowing in of the North-
port smeller, it has been found possible to reduce the ores of Rossland nt a
cost of about $8.80 a ton. Now comes
the report .vouched for by mon who
should know, thut the management of
this smelter is considering the advisability of   accepting  ore at a   net rute
of $460 a ton for freight and treatment This  will hon  substantial  cut
below the C. P. R. rato and will
bring the pay limit down very low in
deed, enabling nenrly all companies
with any bodies of ore to mine at a
profit.

It is understood  that  another   man is

plurit'S    have   been far too common   of |
lute anil opinions   nre pretty freely ox- j
pressed   that    tbe   police   authorities
should give heed   to this   fact nnd   en- j

NEW STEAMBOAT,
To Be Built By tbo International Navigation and Trud.iig Co.
Yet another addition is to be made
to the fleet of steamers on Kootenay
Lake. Owing tu the largely inoreased
traffic between Nelson, Kaslo and intermediate ports the directors of tho
International Navigation and Tradin
Co., have decided to build a larg
new ste.imer somewhat upon the sunn
lilies as tin' International only of more
modem type. It is just possible that
the completion of the Nelson Bed-
lington line has something to do with
this decision of the directors of tbecom-
pany. It is on the cards that either
the International or rhe new steamer
will rnn in connection with the trains
on that line.
This is important news both for passengers and merchants, Competition always benefits the "community at
large though railway companies nre
inclined to take u different view of the
mutter. It is not yet known when the
new bout will be readv but within
the course of the next few days probably tbo directors of the International
Nagvigation mid Trading Oompany
will havo mora news of interest to announce.
