A RESUME  OF THE DREYFUS CASE
Miner's History of the Drama Brought to a Conclusion-
An Indelible Stain Upon the Fair
Name of France-
Rennes, Aug 81.���At the opening of have  written  the  paragraphs  in tbe
the Dreyfus trial today M. Panl Meyer, n member of tho institute and director of the school of ancient manuscripts, was the first witness called.
He deposed in favor of DreyfnB. After Moliniere and Giry aud M Picot.
members of the institute, testified in
fnvor of Dreyfns, General De Loye
testified ngaiust the prisoner on the
artillery references in the bordereau.
The evidene of Meyer, Moliniere and
Giry, who are handwriting exports of
the first rank, was a strong point for
Dreyfus They were most emphatic
in deolaring the borderean was written by Esterhazy mid created a better
impression than Bertillon.
General Mercier asked t ' be allowed
to reply to Moliniere and then confirm ing the professors' statement tbat
Esterhazy had changed his writing
sinoe 1894, puzzled the audience. That
Esterhazy should have deemed it advisable to change his handwriting
since tho date of tho hordeteau which
appears ut first sight to indicate that
lie wrote it, aud that Meroier should
support Moliuiere.aroused discussion as
to its import,
Then' are some people who see in
Mercier's unsolicited testimony of yesterday in support of the honorable
nalnre of Mathieu Dreyfus' visit to
Colonel Sandhorr in 1894, in behalf of
his brother, and tho general's move
today, au indication of some change of
uttitndn, perhaps a pielude to a candid avowal of his mistakes of 1894.
On tbe other hand many persons think
Mercier, fearing thnt Saturday's exposure will  discredit   bim  altogoher
bordereau concerning the artillery.
] CONTINUATION OF NARRATIVE.
Continuing the oliHin of the Dreyfus
J narrative, whioh appeared in yester-
! day's Miner, it will be remembered
j that publio interest in the oase had
been revived by pnhliontion of the text
of the borde-eau. Following upon this
M. Castelin, a member of Ihe Chamber of Deputies, gave notice of an interpellation of the Government to be
made ou November 1, 1890. It now became necessary for War Minister Billot
to make up his mind how to act, as it
would rest with him to deal with the
interpolator iu the Chamber. And
now one of tho most sordid and disgraceful actions in the annals of modern histroy was done in order lo
strengthen the mind of the vacillating
war minister. Henry forged a note
pnrpt rting to come from Pnuizzardi,
the Italian, to Schwarzkoppen, the
German attache.    Here it is :
This wns, shown to Billot by Gonse
and De Boisdeffre,aud fortified by this
further conviotiou of the gnilt of Droy-
fns, Billot went to the Chamber and
siated that tho Dreyfus Court martial
had been "regularly oomposed" and
that "reasons of state'' made it unwise
to make publio the facts of tbe case.
Both the German and Italian Govern-
v.ieuts protested against the authenticity of the document bnt nothing waa
then heard of protests. Picquart, when
told of it by Billot, at once denied its
genuineness and was consequently got
rid of by beiug ordered to the Tunisian  frontier,   being  succeeded   at the
with tho   judges,   has   conceived   the
idea of giving away on certain points.   Intelligence Department by Henry
whioh, moreover, aro almost incontestable, and thus to some extent reinstate
himself by  an   affectation  of   impartiality.
M. Picot related au interesting conversation which he had with tho Au8-
tro-Hungarian attache, Colonel Schneider, mention of whoso name evoked
prompt protest front Major Cariere in
tho name of the Government. Schneider, according to tbis witness, admitted thut Esterhazy acted as a spy and
wrote the bordereau.
General Roget with bis usual shrewdness seized npou Pioot'S statement that
nohneider expressed astoniBbmcut
that French officers should have the
bad taste to question the word of for-
eifW officers to n ouut the platform
��nd make a short speech in defense of the attitude of French officers,
concluding with tho remark:
" I intervened heoanso when French
officers aie attacked they have tbe right
to defend tlieu.selvts. "
There words will be published nil
over Franco and will tend to make
Boget more popular with tho array.
General Do Loye repeated hia testimony before the conrt of cassation re-
Ming to the 120 short cannon hydro-
pnenmatto brake and tho "robin"
shell. Dreyfns in reply, made a really
rll'OT statement,explaining thnt he saw
hyliopiieumatic brake once at Bourges,
OU-oe at the sohool of war, and that he
"ever saw it used beoause while on the
he was  never present  at
general staT
"ring praotice.
Major Carriere then made applica-
"nn to have the court sit behind closed

Iu May, 1897, Picquart wrote to
Henry and complained of the mystery
whioh was being made of his whereabouts by the War office; Henry replied that this was the result of attempting to suborn officers to speak
of a "certain writing beiug that of a
certain person," and made other allusions which so alarmed Picquart tbat
be came to Paris on leave aud placed
Henry's letter aud tho correspondence
he had had with General Gonso is tbe
hinds of his legal adviser und then
returned to his duty in Tunis.
In tho meantime Madame Dreyfus
and the prisoner's brother, Matthieu
DreyfuB hud obtained another warm
ally, namely M. Soheurer Kestner,
Vice-President ot the Senate, and
(iiko Dreyfus) an Alsatian. He advised Mathieu Dreyfus to write to the
aeoretary of war, acousing Esterhazy
as the author of the bordereau, and demanding justice for his brother. This
was accordingly done. Soheurer Kestner had believed in the gnilt of Drevfus, but hearing some tules about the
prisoner which proved to be falso, had
gone into tho case fully with Picqnart's
lawyer and had become convinced of the
unhappy man's innocence. The Figaro now called boldly for a revision of
the whole case and a party to support
this demand headed by Soheurer-Kos-
tner began slowly, hut surely, to
light for that object. Ksterbazy now
came forward and demanded a court
martial in order to establish his innocence and this was (iu January, 1898)
accordingly hold. He admitted that tho
handwriting of the bordereau was hiB
own, but said that it wns a tracing
made by Dreyfus upon his writing nnd
then put together. Ho deolared that the
petit bleu had been forged by Piqnart.
His evidence was accepted aud he was
acquitted. Pioquart was then tried
on the charge of "showing and divulging documents" i. e. giving to his
lawyer the oorrespendenoe with Gonse.
He was fonnd guilty, dismissed from
tho army and sent buck to prison.
Kmile Zola now appears on tho
scene. In January of 1898 ho published
a lottor ho bad writteu to tho president
of tbe Republic, containing a series of
accusations against the court martinis
that had tried Drefyus aud Kstorhazy.
Ho hoped that by so doing he would
be proBoouted nnd that thereby, light
would bo thrown on tho whole ease in i
open ccurt. Howevei, his object was |
only partly attained as the Minister of
War, in order  to prevent a reopening I
of the Drevfus oase, confined the prosecution to one accusation only. The
presiding judge ruled that no evidence
should be called on the points raised by
the proseoution, and on the charges
marie by Zola ia the letter to the President of the Republio which was, as
aforesaid, published in tne Aurore.
Zola demanded the sanio treatment as
"thei^es and murderers" reoeivod, but
(inoredible as it may appear to English lawyers) the court decided that
no question foreign to the indictment
wonld be allowed. In spite of tbe on-
position of the court, Maitre Labori
(Zola's counsel) succeeded in elicting
from the witnesses three important
tacts, namely,the illegality of Drefyus'
condemnation, the error as to the borderean, and the identity of its real author.
The trial was remarkable for the replies of some of the witnesses. Ex-
Premier Oasimir Perier when asked
to take tho oath refused. "Pardon
me," he said to the judge, "I cannot
swear to tell the truth since that is
just what I ,oay not tell. Mv duty is
not to toll the truth."
General Pellieux, when in the witness box hinted darkly that "a day of
butchery" was coming nuon tho sons
of the jurymen if tho chiefs of the
army were discredited in the eves of
tbe soldiers General De Boisdeffre
threatened tho wholesale resignation of
the chiefs of the army, should Zola he
acquitted. The jury found Zola gnilty
���tbe only verdict they dared find���and
he was sentenced ti a lino of ��120 and
one year's imprisonment. What a mis
erable travesty of justice it all was!
Zola appealed and a now trial was ordered, but this time ho refused to appear and was duly sentenced again.
He therefore left France.
In June, 1898'came another ohange
of ministrv and M. Cavaignao became
minister of war in plaoe of Billot.
Cavaignao determined to put au end
to the Dreyfus imbroglio and gave an
immeuse amount of personal study to
the oase. He made a groat speeoh iu
the Chamber purporting to he an explanation and history of the facts upon
which Drefyus was condemnor!. His
guilt wns uuq' estiouahle, said Cavan-
aianao, for he had coufessed it. This
alleged confession consisted of a remark that Dreyfus was said to havo
made to one Capt. Authoine, to tho
effect that he, Dreyfns, if ho had boon
let aloue, wonld have handed over
more confidences than the bordereau
contained.
A further "confession" wns a remark with Capt. Lebrun Renault (who
commanded tho gendarmes who took
Dreyfus to prison) was said to have
copied down in a note book he had
since destroyed. Cavaignao, however,
said he had niade n copy of it before
its destruction.
But Cavaignao did not stop nt
speeohes. Under his direction, Esterhazy was arraigned before a oourt of
military enquiry, beforo which certain
scandalous conduct ou his part was
brought to light aud ho was cashiered.
Du Paty do Clam was also removed
from the active list.
Then came the greatest blow to tho
enemies of Dreyfus. Hei.ry confessed
to having forged the very documents
(i. e. the petit bleu and those contained in the secret dossier) upon which
Cavaignao had based his great speech,
and then ended his miserable existence
by outting his throat with a razor.
Cavaignao aDd De Boisdeffre immediately resigned. General Zurlindeu
was appointed War Minister, but after
studying tbe Dreyfus papers resigned
within a week and wns succeeded by
General Chanoine. The discovery of
Henry's forgery and Cavaignao's zeal
are mysteries which have not yet i Ben
oleared up. It is suggested, aud with
good reuson, that tbe German and
Italian Governments,who had all along
repudiated the authenticity of the petit, bleu, had brought some strong influence to bear ou the case.
The new Minister of Justice M.
Sarrion���an honest and tearless man-
aided by Picquart, now continued Iho
work of procuring a revision of the
court martial. Geueral Zurlindeu opposed tbom tooth and nail and renewed the accusations made by Mercier,
Du Paty de (31am and others against
Pioquart, Chanoine seeing tbat revision was inevitable resigned and whb
succeeded aa Minister of War by Frey-'
oinot.
Finally on October 27, 1898, the
criminal chamber of the Court of Cassation���tbo court of appeal In France-
met and proceeded to take evidence.
This oourt is divided into three cliaoi
beis, the criminal chamber, the civil
chamber and tho ehambre des roquetes.
Owing to the silly attacks mado bv
Boaurepairc, the President of the civil
chamber.on his colleagues iu the criminal chamber, the ouuo was transferred
to tbe united chambers of the three
oourts. Tho Figaro then published the
whole of the evidence which the criminal chamber had heard (how, it is not
known, as it had boon kept rigidly
secret) Felix Faure, tho President of
the Republio (a seoret opponent to revision) died suddenly,nud Ballot-Bean-
pie tho president of tho civil ohnmbor
of the oourt of appeal,presented his report to the judges of the third chamber, which was to the effect that the
bordereau was not written by Dreyfus
bnt Esterhazy. To follow the maze
of intricacies, plots, oountor plots,
veiled ladies, forgeries, etc., whioh
were dsolosed iu the evidoioe put before the Court of Oussation is impossible in so short a narrative as this.
Suffice that revision was deccidod on
and Dreyfns was ordered to bo brought
baok to Franco and undorgo another
trial by court martial,but this time not
with olosod doors.
The extraordinary secrecy which wns
preserved iu his return voyage on the
Sfax,the tale of tho horrible brutalities
endured during hiB flvo years' imprisonment on Devil's Island, his mysterious landing in Franco and journey to
Kennes, and finally tho constitution of

Wardner, Idaho, Aug. 81.���-Sergeant
Crawford, ho who liberated the prisoners from tho Wardner bullpen, was
brought over from Missoula by Sheriff'
Sutherland yesterday to Wallace. This
morning he was brought down from
that point in a Government wagon,
shackled aud under guard of mounted
cavalry. The prisoner presented a de
jected and cast down appearance and
seemed to realize tho full import of
the shameful act whioh he bad committed. He was im" cdialely placed
m an iron cell specially prepared for
this occasion, to await the court martial, whioh will probably be ordoredin
a few days by Goneral Merriam.
In an unofficial examination by Gun-
tain Edwards, Crawford stated that, be
had only received $250 for the job,
which had been paid bim by Pat Ad-
dudell, ono ot tho escaped prisoners.
This story is given sonic credence by
the authorities from the fact that Crawford was headed toward Butte, where
he is said to have expected to receive
another payment from the Western
Federation of Labor. Ho knew nothing whatever of the direction taken by
the prisoners after leaving the pen.
Although posses are continually
scouring the country positively no (dew
in regard to tho fugitives has been
obtained. Tbe luman Colfax story is
given no credence here. The deputy

description of the man given disproves

BELGIAN AFFAIRS.
Brussels, Aug. 81.���Tho Belgian
chamber of deputies todny rejected a
motion to revise the constitution, the
vote standing 9B against 111. Tho motion was intended to pavo tho way for
a universal sutfrago bill,
Kennedy, tbe young man who has
been a prisoner iu the police cells on
tho charge of vagrancy but who tha
police thought was mixed up with the
recent burglaries, escaped from his
cell last uijiht, presumably about ten
o'clock, and at the time of goiug to
press was still at large. With him
went the best opportunity the police
have had for clearing up the burglary
mysteries. Ho effected his escape hy
wrenching out a bar of his cell
window, and squeezing himself
through the space thus provide^.
There is every probability that Kennedy had confederates as it would have
been very difficult for him to loosen
tho bars himself. The police were
quite positive that he was ono of the
burglars but no conclusive evidence
against him could bo seenred. If he
was concerned in thorn he must have
bad friends ou the outside wbo
would be anxious to have him free before any damaging ndmissious were
made by him, aud they would certainly do all they could to assist him
to regain liberty. That he had some
assistance is evident. As soou as the
escape was discovered Chief Jarvis
wired to all outside points and sent
men to \*!i!r to intercept the fogitivo
if he wus going that direction. Special men vtere put to work searching
ihe City, bnt with poor electric lights
nud u rain storm it was a dark proposition.
The fact that the man escaped is
sufficient evidence that the cells are
not in proper condition. Tho polioe
cannot watch the prisoners all the time
as lhero is patrol work to be done that
must be ai tended to. If the police
airest men tho City should put the
colls into sufficiently good oondition to
hold tbem.
Since writing the abovo.Jand at an
early hour t is m. wing, a Miner representative visited the City goal Rs4
examined tho window through whioh
tho prisoner escaped. The bars are
fastened into the windows in a very
weak manner, the two ends sinking
iuto mortar ouly about half an inoh.
Thoy can easily be worked loose anil
when bent only a little onej end oan bo
sprung out. It is strange that more
prisoners bave not escaped. It is impossible for lhe police to do their work
properly with such miserable accommodation and it is not fair to expect
tbom to do so.
Patrolman Hardy wns sent to Ymir
on foot. In thunder, lightning and
rain the trip will not be a pleasant
one.

This has particular reference to The
statement that the Government was expected to introduce legislation at tho
next session which Mr. Maoplorson
would not support. The Times would
appear to havo some knowledge of the
intention, and of tho dissatisfaction
felt with it by other supporters of the
Government. There is the "risk of
a severance of party relations" in raoie
than our' quarter. Tmly the. Ministerialists are a happy family. Was there

conception nf danger is, although in
this case we understand it to mean
that the life of the Government is

will not expose itself to tbe assaults of
the enemy. It is securely entrenched,
and declines to come out into the open.
There are six months yet to run before
the Legislature need meet, and during
that period the Government is beyond
the reach of those who are waiting to
rend it. All that is necessary is to
abide quietly as it is, and tho Government is safe beyond peradventure until
the requirements of the constitution
oompel the assembling of the Legislature. In saying, therefore, that the
Government is in no danger it doubtless means that it has retired into its
hole and intends to remain there.
Tbat would be all very well aud
very simple if the personal wishes or
exoectatioDS of the Ministers were
alone to be considered. In this case,
however, there is something else, and
that is the fact, patent beyond the
possibility of misconception, that the
Government no longer enjoys the confidence of the Legislature. That is a
condition which introduces other considerations. It is conceivable that
members of a discredited Government
might desire to remain in office indefinitely. But soinethiug more than their
wishes have to be regarded. A Government that has lost the confidence of the Legislature is presumed to have also lost tho confidence of tho country, and ii^ that
case it is expected to take itselrotT or
to be driven off. And it is the duty
of tho Lieutenant-Governor to see this
done. Among tho supporters of the
Semlin Government iu the Legislature
there havo beeu sufficient open defections to leave it in a minority. The
matter is not one for speculation ; it
has been made patent by the declaration of members themselves. It is so
pateptjthat the Lieutenant-Governor
cannot refuso to take actiou in respect
to it, without virtually proclaiming
himself a partisan.
We cannot but suppose that tho full
meaning of tho situation is within
the comprehension of The Columbian,
and we are, therefore, face to face with
tho rather startling suggestion that
Ministers are counting on the sympathy of the Lieutenant-Governor aud
will remain in office until the last bell
rings The last bell in this case will
be the extreme limit of the Legislative
recess. They are in no danger, because the Lieutenant-Governor is with
them. That is a fair inference to be
drawn from The Columbian's remark.
If a misrepresentation of its position,
it can easily disavow it. But as it
stunds we take it to mean that the
Lieutenant-Governor will ignore tho
very patent evidence that tho Government has lost its majority, aud will
not insist ou an early session of the
Legislature iu order that a sniinnary
period may be put to a situation of
grave political unrest.

It is s��id that thu Light-Hour law
should be given a fair trial. It would
he more to the point if it were said
that the law should have beon given
fair, open consideration before it was
pusned. There in nothing now to try;
there was union that was open to doubt
and discussion while the niattur was
still iu abcyunoe. But a thin House
and scheming Ministers preferred a
surreptitious course, and a law of
which nothing had been heard was
sprung upon the country. It needs no
trial, for the good reason that all know
exactly what it is and what it was
meant to accomplish. It robs the mine
owners of twenty per cent, of their
production, without adding anything
to the gains of the mine workers. If
the latter were mado richer by the
mine owneis' loss something could be
said fur the law, if only from the
standpoint of the highwayman |bul all
that is accomplished by it is to reduce
production nnd give tho mine workers two extra hours of Idleness

jjjIH a. TUSNEB 18 T1EGT) OF THE
PRESENT GOVERNMENT.
Be Bds Political Ambitions and Resigns
2is Position as Gold Commissioner
and Government Agent.
Considerable comment was cauBed in
the Ci'y yesterday by the resignation
Bl Mr John A. Turner from tne office
of Gold Commissioner and Government
A���rat �� w>8 ���K Mr' Tlirner B oloS6
friends who had any idea that he was
contemplating suei. a step and the
I16w8 oonsoqnently oomeB in the nature
���f a Borptise. The reasons for tho resignation were the subjects of much
speculation on tne streets yesterday
and u host or interesting rumors were
rife The true reasons that led to tbe
ution were the extremely unbusinesslike manner in which the Government
transacts its affairs, and the ambition
of Mr. Turner to go himself to Vic-
toiiu and set things right, or, at least,
to assist in doing so. All those who
have done business with Mr. Turner in
tlm Government office have found him
to he most capable nnd obliging.
None are more ready to acknowledge
this than Mr. Turner's politioal enemies. Mr. Turner likes to do business
on business principals but ho found it
impossible to do so with the departments at Viotoria, ardent Government
supporter though he is. He found that
he would get the credit for himself of
conducting the country's business in
nu inonpahle manner, if he did not (jet
ont before the state ot affairs became
tun jpparent. So ho gets out and
praotioally tells the Government that
tbey oan run their own band wagon in
their own peculiar way.
Then there is the political side to
tho story, Mr. Turner is ambitious
ami would like to go to Victoria. He
knows that Hon. J. Fred Hnuio will
not run again for Nelson. He steps
out of office beforo he has any quarrel
with tlm powers tbat be at Victoria
and leaves his skirts clear to be classed as a Government supporter. He
knows how tbe business of bis department should be conducted nnd does not
know anyone wbo would make a better
Minister of Mines than himself. He is
siek of doing business with such a
Government, bnt is willing to become
a moniher of it. E\eryone expeets n
Provincial election soon���in fact both
political parties aro preparing for it
now���and Mr. Turner will lay his
pipes accordingly, At least, so rumor
hns il
And rnnioi goes; further Mr John
Houston is the obstacle to the achievement of Mr. Turner's politioal ambition. Them i* no doubt in the world
lint that the editor of the Daily Dynamiter has his "eagle eye" on the scat
of Hon. J. Fred Hume, if not the portfolio, and be has now snfflt ient promises of support to encourage him to
come ont. Mr. Houston nnd Mr Turner had a warm light for first term in
the mayoralty chair Since then tbey
havo been political boil fellows, but
Mr. Turner wonld like to have just one
more go at the ambitious ex-niitnorut.
Tho members of tho Government party
in the City will, of course, take a
hand. The majority Of them are much
opposed to patting up Mr. Housttn
to most certain defoat, and resent his
efforts to foist himself on tho party.
This wing would much rather have
Mr. Tarnflr,*bnt some irresponsible individuals among the rest will hold
out for Mr. Houston and so thero will
bo somo great old wirepulling bofore
the nomination is finally made. The
public, however, will not likely take
any interest in the light as neither Mr.
Turner nor Mr. Houston, would stand
l lie ghost of a Bhow ot electiou.
Tlie subject of Mr. Turner'ss nooes-
sor is also a fruitful, subject of discussion on the street. The name of Mr
W. A. Jowett at once suggested itself
to everyone, and it is considered that
that gentleman will make a strong bid
for the vacant office. Mr. Jowett lost
u friend at court when Mr. Joseph Martin oonolnded his feat of committing
politioal suioide. The nnine of Luther
Lennox is also mentioned in connection with the vaoanoy. His friends
tii ink that as be did not get the regis-
trarship he lmB something coming from
e Government.
Hut the one man that haa tho refusal
of the uositiou is Mr. John Ayton Gib-
Bon, of tbe Phair Hotel.
Mr. GibBOU always has beeu a
utaonoh supporter aud valuable friend
nf the present Government. Ho oujoys
tho eonliilence of tbe people at Viotoria
and the rospect and esteem of tbe people of Nelson, He hns n qualification
that is not always taken into consideration when political appointments
are being made and that is that he is
thoroughly (competent to 1111 tho position, ilu now bas tho oiler under oon-
Bideravion, aud it will nat be surpris
Ing it he is the next Gold.Oommission-
er and Government Agent.
Mr. Hume und Mr. Oar lei -Cotton are
expected to arrive iu Nelsou today
and tbey will probably settle tne matter. Mr Hume's committee is practically unanimous for Mr. Gibson.
11UUNS WILL STAY AWAY.
1'iovincial  Government Not  Wealthy
Enough to Extradite Him.
Tne Government have deoided not to
take any proceedings to extradite
Bnrnswho, it will be remembered, escaped from the Provincial goal at Fol-
Bon, aud was captured at Northport.
Yesterday Mr. Hullock-Wobster, received a telegram from tbe Attorney-
Goneral's omoe to thnt offoot.
Mr.Bullock-Webster says thnt no reu-
son is given for this Step by the Government. The last prisoner the Provincial Government endeavored to extradite nost tho Proviuoe about $1,000,
rnisibly this may be the reason
Whioh has eauBod the present decision
to bo arrived ut.
In conuoction with the Burns oase
the Rossland Miner says:
Thomas Bums, who received a sentence of IK monthB at Nelson, for robing two bartenderB at the oirous can
teen on the 8th of Angvgt, was evidently not favorably impressd with
the surroundings of his new place of
residence and seized the first oppurtuii-
,ty to escape'. The jail authorities at
Nelson evidently kept the matter
quiet, as nothing was heard iu Ross-
mud about the escape until today,
wheu Constable Devitt, of Trail, was
ordered to go to Northport, where
Bums was nuder arrest. Tbe constable returned iu the aiternoou empty
nauded, as the prisoner, having had
one taste of Canadian justice, was in
no way inclined to return for another
dose, and declared he would fight extradition. The police anticipate no
difficulty in securing the transfer of
tbe fugitive to this side of the line,
though there may be some delay.
The prisoner, in telliug his experiences to the constable  yesterday   said :
"Tho Rossland policy are pretty
slick, all right, but those Nelson fellows are easy." From which it may
be inferred tnat Mr. Burns has not
been unacquainted with polioe methods in the past.

REPORTED "HOLD UP.'
Considerable   Excitement   Caused   on
the Streets List Night.
There has beeu a feeling in the City
that the gang of burglars operating
in the Citv would use tbe fourteen revolvers nnd ammunition stolen from
the Nelson Hardware Company for the
purpose of holding people up. Color
seemed to be leut to this theory lust
night about midnight vhen piercing
shriekB of a woman attracted the attention of the few poople on the streets.
Chief Jarvis happened to be in hearing and made his way quickly to the
sput from whence 'he sounds came and
found a woman lying in the ditch. It
was quite close to the City Hall. She
claimed to havo been struck and robbed of her purse containing, $17,bnt after being taken into the lockup and
savored by the chief that there was no
danger sho cooled off and seemed to
forget that she had lost any money.
Sho did not look like a woman who
would havo a purse containing $17.
However, a man who was passing
saw some one approach the woman and
disappear just after the shouting commenced. It wns an extremely dark
night and it would bave been no trouble for anyone to escape had he really
robbed the woman.
Tbo probabilities are, however, that
there was no hold up. No one would
be liable to select the close viciuity of
the goal In commit such a deed.
TELEGRAMS INTERRUPTED.
Owing to nn accident to the wires
the Associated Press Telegrams were
reduced ton minimum laBt night. Tho
only information to bn gleaned from
Ihe telegraph ollice at 1 a. m., was
tbat the "wites wore down East" and
that the operator bad "done hia best. "
This is one of those unforeseen
though inevitable accidents which a
newspaper has to suffer for, nndwhicb
the indulgent public must put up with.
Possibly the violent electric storm
has bad something to do with tho interruption in the telegraphic commun
ioation.

No speoial meeting of the Oity

was expected. One will be hold
shortlv, however, the delay being
oaused by the fact that a report whioh
the City Engineer is preparing on
the water works pipe linn, is uot yet
ready for pri sentatiou.
It iB said thnt the odor arising from
the stagnant water collected at tho corner of Stanley and Baker streets is
making the hair of the manager of the
Bank of B. O. stand on end. This will
probably account in sOmo measure for
tho said bank's shyness ou   overdrafts.

MURE   METROPOLITAN AIRS.
Nelsou to Have a   Thoroughly   Up;tu-
Date Merchants Clob.
The Exchange Clnb Company, Limited, has recently been organized at
Viotoria, with a capital stock of $-5, -
TOO, with 35,000 shares of $1 each.
The officets of tbe company are, A. L.
MoEweu, president; H. R. Bellamy,
vice president; A. N. Johnson, manager; R. H. Williams secretary treasurer; A. L. McEwen, H. R. Bellamy,
R. E. Smith, C. Morrison, Capt. G.
F. Haywarri, provisional directors.
The prospectus sets forth tbat: "The
Exchange Club Co. Limited, bus been
organized for tbe purpose of establishing aud operating a Joint Stock Club,
first in the City of Nelson nnd afterwards in any town or city in which
the stockholders of the said company
mav deem it advisable to operate. A
charter has been obtained which gives
the oompany good tree scope in the extending and carrying out of such future ventures as the company may ate
fit. The site and place of business has
been chosen by the provisional :',irec-
tors, viz, tho premise s at present occupied and known as the Bodega; the
present owners having agreed to take
half tho valuo of the business in stock
and the balance in cash. Plans and
specifications have bejn made, giving
the nature and estimated cost of improvements to be made on the building. The rear of the preseut building
will be raised, and in the upper story
there will be a large front loom for use
aB general reading, sitting and commit lecvrooms, se'eral private dining
and card rooms, kitchen, etc. The
back of the present building will be
fitted up as a large nnd elegant dining room. The restaurant will he conducted in thorough first-class style
and special attention giveu to merchants' luncheons in the middle of the
day; to private luncheon or diuner
parties, und after-theatre suppers."
The opening of this club will fill a
"long felt want" in Nelson. Most of
the leading business men of the City
have subscribed for stock and sufficient
money has already beeu raised to fit
the premises up iu luxuriant and metropolitan maimer. The rooms will be
furnished with every regard to the
comfort of tlie patrons anu of course,
the restaurant will be thoroughly up-
to-date. Ouly the private rooms up
stairs will be reserved for sloekhold
eis and their friends and the restaurant aud bar will be open to tbe general public. This will make the undertaking a financial success as the
returns will not depend entirely upon
the patronage of the stockholders. The
aim if the directors is to make the
Exchange the best place of its kind in
the Provinoe und the currying out of
the present plans will assure this.
As the City grows so will the Exchange and the time is uot lik ly far
off when u gymnasium and baths wil[
be added to pit it on an equal basis
with some of the best clubs in the
East. That such a club has been needed iu Nelsou, all will agree and the
establishment, of it will place Nelson
still oue more step above nil other interior towns as a desirable residential
center.
A meeting of the stockholders was
called for lust night, but owing to the
absence of the president, who is out of
tho City, and the illness of the vice
president it wns postponed for a few
days.

EASILY LEAD and

The people that run after every fly-by-jlight
bargain sale,where something is offered for nothing, are the kind of people that are never satisfied; and no wonder, for they nevetget anything
worth wearing.
The well satisfied people are those who buy
their FOOTWEAR of reliable dealers; knowing from past experiences that they get their
moneys' worth.

Ymir, Ang. 30.���Recent develop
meuts in the Wilcox miue, owned by
the Broken Hill Mining & Development company, have served to show
up a line bodj- of ore. The shaft on the
Fourth of July claim adjoining the
Wilcox aud owned by the same company is on the Bame vein as No. 2 tunnel on the Wilcox. This tnnnel has
now been driven 265 feet and it is tbe
intention of tbe company to drive it
another TOO feet, when it will reach
the ore chute on which the Fourth of
July shaft is sunk. This shaft is down
GO feet and has opened up a flue chute
of ore. consisting of galena and oxides
mixed. Two average samples taken
across four feet iD this shaft gave respectively :*s."i and ��!��> in gold and silver per ton. Wheu the Wilcox No. 'i.
tunnel has reached below this shaft a
large body of high grade ore will
have been developed Tunnel No. 1 is
now iu 840 feet and a raise nas lieen
mndu to the surface, a distance of 11(1
feet, from a point 800 feet from the
mouth of the tunnel . A shaft has also
been sunk to a depth of fiO feet below this raise, making a total depth
from the surface of 170. feet. Another
tunnel will be driven below this to
connect with this winze, wheu another large body of ore will have been
developed. No. 3 tnunnel has been
driven a distance of 76 feet making a
total of 890 feet of worn accomplished
on the pioperty, all of which is on
ledge matter. A valuable discovery
was made a few days ago when a new
vein was uncovered 20 feet from No. 3
tunnel and running parallel with it.
This new vein carries ore exatly similar to the parallel vein in  No. 2.
It will be seen from the above, that
a large block of ore has beeu developed between No. ! tunnel and the surface and that two other blocks are partially developed below No. 1 tunnel
and on the Fourth of July. As by far
the larger proportions of this ore is
free milling it has been decided to install a 10-statiip mill at the earliest
possible date A mill site has already
been secured and surveyed and water
rights have been acquired over Wild
Horse and Avalanche creeks. The
road from Ymir to the mine will be
completed in the course of about three
weeks.
The new machinery to replace that
recently broke at the Ymir stamp mill
arrived here yesterday. It appears
that hitherto the power has been trans
mitted by means of a cable which has
been found uot to work satisfactorily
aud is now being replaced by a belting
arrangement. The mill will start up
again an soon as this machinery is iu
position.
���   *   ���
A few days ago the Revelstoke Herald annonnced n new and important
strike of over three feet of clean ore
on tne Nettie L, near Ferguson. The
importance aud richness of the ore in
this bedy was demonstrated by Assayer
Holdich, when he made an assay from
samples brought to town by the manager, W. B. Pool. The assays gave
tho astonishing result as follows: 71?
ounces of silver, 11) in gold, 70 per
cent, lead and 10 pet cent copper
Mr. Pool was as much surprised as
anyone When the result of the assay
waa made known to him, although he
was satisfied that tho strike was a rich
one, yet he did not ttgme that it would
roach the figures that it did. Taking
the figures of the assay and putting
it iu at dollars and cents, with silver
say at (10 cents, the present market
price, oopper at 18 cents per pound and
lead at $4.66 per owt,, wonld bring
the price of the Nettie L. ore up to
about $5-10.30 per ton, which is an
astonishing evidence of the richness
of the Laroeau. It is the intention
of lhe manager to start stoping oro
for shipment immediately, and already
ore sheds are being erected ou the
grounds, and by December I, Mr. Pool
expects to have 200 tons ready for shipment to the smelter at Trail. Ry that
dato the Nettie L. will be within fonr
miles of steamboat and railway transportation, as it is expected that two
railways will ho hailt and iu inn-
niiiK operations to the south end of
Trout Lake, and steamer connection
between tho end ot the track and
Trout Lake Citv.

English and   American   banking,   und

for such a man.    Mr. Charles Hnsnier.
tbe general   manager of the   Canadian

to be in Londou,   and being   consulted j

L.  Pease,    joint   general   manager   of
the Merchants' Bank   nf   Halifax,    iu |
this city.    This   wns   no   sooner   said
than a cable was flashed under the Atlantic, and the clever Montreal banker
was invited to come to Loudon.
Mr. Pease stood not upon the order
of his going, but went. Although
this docs not signify that be has accepted the magnificent offer that has
been made him, viz: to name his own
salary, and become the head of one of
the most important financial institutions in the world. In fact the statement has been made tnnt Mr. Peise
has declined the tempting offer, and
will remain with the Merchants' Bank
of Halifax, while others affirm that
the question is not vet definitely set-

BIG BANKING BUSINESS.
American Money Will Invade   the Financial Centre of the World.
A splendid compliment has just
been paid to Canadian bankers and
Canadian banking institutions, and at
the same limo a big pieoe of news has
come to light, says the Montreal Gazette of Monday. It appears that a
number of New York capitalists some
time siuee decided to establish a powerful banking Institution in Londou.
the great market of the world, believing of course that the thousands of
Americans constantly in Great Britain
and the continent would contribute to
a great extent to the success of the
financial scheme, that is so soon to be
launched in the great business and financial ceutre of the Old World. The
amount of capital to be invested is said
to be enormous, and although tbe widest figures an-afloat this part of the
story cannot be confirmed or contra-
dieted. Some say twenty millions,
some say fifty, but onr- tiling is certain, all the money required to give
this new Yankee notion a fair start
will be forthcoming, and it remains lo
be seen if the New Yorkers can give
Londoners pointers In bunking and finance.  It is said that John W.  Mackay,
(Continued From First 1'iigc.)
der the presidency of Colonel Jouast.
are stories which are still fresh in our
memory. 'Ihe sitting of that court-
martial is still pending. What the
close of it will be il would be unwise
to foretell.
A complete and perfect resume of all
the events up to the present time is
well nigh impossible with the imperfect material to bo obtained in Nelson
and tlie limited space afforded by The
Miner. But the impartial critio on
reading tins short history cannot fail
to be struck with the fact that Dreyfus, gui-ty or not guilty.bas not received that treatment which is so dear to
Englishmen all the world over, namely
fair play. And, moreover, the details
of the case form a blot on the escutcheon of the land of the Heur do lys that-
only the healing hand of time oan
erase.
