Nelson, British Columbia. Sunday, August 27, 1899.
Tenth Year
Canadian    Pressmen    the
Guests of the Oity.
A Largo Number of Oitizens Greeted the
Visitors at the Opera Honse
in tho Evening.
The advent of the Canadian Press
Association has excited consideralbe interest iu this (own. That the pressmen
theniselvps reciprocate this feeling is
evident from the large nnd influential
body of representatives that arrived
last night, by far the largest that has
ever yet visited Nelson. Some of the
members of the oommittee who have
been chosen to entertain the visitors
went down to Kobson yesterday to
meet them. These consisted of the
Mayor, Alderman Beer and Messrs.
Lay, Jowett and Benton.
Upon the arrival of tho steamer at
Robson after the usual courtesies of
greeting worn exchanged a light repast
of tea ami sandwiches was partaken
of anil then the ttnin took them on to
Bonuitigton Fulls. Here a halt was
made to enable them to inspect the
powerhouse anil mnohinety. Although
tbe shades of evening had fallen be-
fore the party nnivrd there yet tho
glorious fulls could hardly have been
seen to better advantage, The pale
twilight wus brightened by the white
masses of fniini and tho grey,low hanging hunks of mist on the dark green
hills formed a fitting background to
the perfect scene. The wonners of
(li'i'trir'iiv paled before the impressive
marvel of Nature and there were few
wbo failed to' rightly appreciate the
mugnificeut panorotna they witnessed.
Tho twilight had sot in before the
party wended their steps from the
Falls hack to the oars. Nelson was
reached shortly before 8 o'clock. The
visitors spoke in the warmest terms of
the reception thoy had received in the
sister city of Hossland. As they were
coming dowu the Arrow Lakes the
president and secretary of the Association and thn 0, P K. representative
were presented with addresses and son-
It was shortly nfter 0 o'clock wheu
oim hundred and fifty ladies and gentlemen seated themselves at the tables
in the Opera House. The ladies who
attended to the decorations of tho tab-
las had done their work splendidly and
the result was that the tables presented a beautiful sight. It was a cold
dinner and the different dishes admitted of tasty decoartious which were
availed of. The interior of the otherwise desolate looking Opeia House
was tastily decorated with flags.bunt-
ing and Chinese lanterns, until at presented a very pleasing effect. The
Mayor was seated at the head of the
table which ran aloug the front of the
��tW and from it three other tables ran
towards tho entrance of the house.
It was the first attempt of the manage-,
went of the Waverly Hotel to stt a first
class supper and tho success of this first
attempt wtiR certainly decided. Mr.
Grosser prepared a meal that would
do credit to any Oity in Canada and
Hi" warm words of praise expressed by
tho visitors showed that they thoroughly appreciated it. The service,
too, was of the very best.
Herr Htoiner's Orchestra supplied
the music, They were niOBt diligent
luring the time thnt the good things
were beiug discussed and later played
appropriate airs for the different
toasts When the inner man bad been
"'tended to, tho   Mayor  proposed  the
a mighty Province in the Dominion
that ouly awaited development British Columbia was a Proviuce of vast
resources The Parliaments had neglected this part of the country nnd he
was sure that the papers of the East
would now urge upon the authorities
to give it the attention it deserved.
Mr. Graham auother member of the
Ontario Legislature followed Col.
Matheson. He said that the Canadian
system of Government was the greatest system ou oarth. He paid an elo-
quout tribute to the different Houses
of Parliament and before he finished
he expressed tho pleasure he had derived from tho genial hospitality of
the NelBon people.
Mr. D. .1. Beaton, in a neat speech,
proposed the health of the Canadian
Press Association. This wns responded to hy Mr. Dingman who thanked
the proposer for his kind words and
tho citizons of Nelson for their more
than kind reception. Mr. Gardiner
next responded to thj toast. He was
very happy in his remarks concerning
tho Hamilton Mountain as compared
with some of the lofty peaks he bad
seen in the west. He is a fluent
speaker and made a distinct impression on his hearers. Mr. O Beirre, of
Stratford, Ont., followed. Theu
came Secretary Cooper, Mr. Burk and
Mr. Pierie. All made very accept
able speeches. Mr. Pirie bas the
reputation of being one of the best after dinner speakers in Canada. He
was not up to his usual mark last
night but certaiuly made the roost
humorous speech of the evening. He
too, had a sneaking regard for tho little
pap r which he runs "down East" but
he found that the mountains grew ou
him. In fact ho wus covered wilh
Mr. Pense, the proprietor of tbat
sterling grit paper, the Kingston
Whig, then proposed the toast to the
City of Nelson. While he was talking
it dawned upon thoBe present that
the visitors had several very fine
speakers amongst them. Mr. Pense's
speech was one of the best delivered
dnring the evening. That the toast
wns heatily drunk goes without say-
i.ig. Tbe members of the association
stood iu their places and gave three
very hearty cheers for tbe citizens.
Mayor Neelands, Aid. McKillop's and
.1. RndcricK Robertson's names were
connected with the toast. Each made
a suitable response. Nelson's speakers
did wish to fill the visitors full of a
whole lot of facts concerning the City
but left this to the visitors themselves
to imbibe today. Next came the in-
evitabe toast to Iho ladies To Mr.
Crease wns entrusted this important
toast���made doubly important by the
attendance of a host of charming
ladies. He proved himself a master of

Borlin, Aug. 2(i.��� Tbe political
situation this week bas been highy interesting. The unexampled defeat of
the Government in tho diet, wbioh,
after his emphatio uttoranoe at Dor-
mund, was a personal defeat for Emperor William, has engrossed attention
to the exclusion of almost everything
else. The faot that tbe blow was dealt
by tbe conservatives, a ptrty whioh
bad been favored and nursed for generations at the expense of every other
party, made the event tho more sensational. Detailed reports have been
wired to the emporor by ever)' member
of the cabinet and hiB majesty wrote
and wired brief replios, in which it
waB apparent ho felt a keen sense of
personal outrage and mennt to deal
punishment to the worst blunderers
and offenders. It was represented to
his majesty that the elections might
not result in a majority for tho canal
projeot, while the dismissal of tbe oab-
iuet and the formation of a new one
would present at this juncture, new
and almost insurmountable difficulties. To break with the conservatives,

Rennes, Aug. 26.���When   tbe  court
martial of Capt. Dreyfus   began  early
that the evidenoe  of Captain  Valeriio
was ouly a repetition of M. Bertillon's
this morning in the Lyoee M. Alphonse : and iu oonsequenoe, what he repliod
Bertillon resumed his testimony which i to that ma tier, applied equally toVal-
was  interrupted  yosterday by the ad- i orio-    Reference having heen made  to
| doctored words in minutes written bv
him at the war office, Dreyfus pointed
,,     ��� .       , , ,.   ,,   |out that  these   minutes were  writteu
ing Dreyfus to be   the  author  of  the  ,��� f. ,    .������       . ���      ,
. B        ,     ,   >n tne presence of witnesses    Hi  also
famous bordereau upon which the cross
examination depends to   establish   tbe
oharga  against the prisoner.    At  one
point he advanced   alleged fresh proofs
journinent of the court   for   tne   day.
M.Bertillon gave his reason forbeliev-:
against the prisoner, namely in the
Dreyfns papers seizod at the war office
aud in which the specialists said he
found two words had been traced. As
be prooeeded witness became embedded in paraphenalia. His lecture, delivered in funereal tones began to pall
on th* judges who finally paid only
the moBt cursory attention to the examples submitted.
Referring to hiB papo- which was
seized at the war offices, Dreyfns said
it would not he strange to see notes
written by officers altered. "I was
shown" said the witness yesterday, "a
note relative to General De Miribot.
There w-ere in the document corrections made by the chief of the department himself which shows that immediately after having writteu a note
Dreyfus handed it. to the chief of the
departmeut "
Refering to the so-called, "Blotting
pad letter" Dreyfus said: "This
letter is perfectly genuine. Maflame
Dreyfus can testify to that point. No
one here will doubt the word of Madame Dreyfus, aud you gentlemen less
than anyone," he added, looking
steadily at the judges.
After a brief adjournment the Government oommissnry, Major Carriere
oalled upon Capt. Valerio of tbe artillery to explain M. Bertillon's system
and to give an opiuiou on the subject.
The captain snid he thought M. Bertillon's evidence might be summarized
in a sentence,"The bordereau wus doctored and the document, fabricated by
means of secret writing or writteu
with a key the key word "interest"
being found on the "bloting pad used
for the letter attributed to Dreyfus
The system" continued the oaptain,
"waa eivdently devised to offer the
prisoner two means of escape. Either
he would deny being the author of tho
bordereau by pointing to the difference
of the handwriting or he would oou-
tend it was a plot by showing tho doc
uments were traoed over his writing.
However complicated the ingenuity
of the man might appear I propose
to show, first, that the do anient was
fabrioiatod. Second, that it was fabricated by means of the key 'interest."
Third that the documents which
were written hy the prisoner in the
war office contained words written by
moans of the same key. Fourth, that
the forgery wbb intended to enable
the prisouor to plead thore was u plot
against him. Fifth, that the prisoner
alone oould be the writer.''
Oapt. \alerio then attempted to
prove his hypothesis traversing the
same ground as already oovered by M.
Bertillon. The witness declared that
as he wished to remain on scientific
giound he would not attempt to de-
flue the motives actuating the writer
of the bordereau,but ho added ho was
oonviuoed it oould only have been
Dreyfus. Esterhazy had declard himself to be the writer bat tbat could not
be true because it had been proven thut
tho bordereau was forgod. In conclusion Captain Valerio declared that the
oourt now had in itB possession matter
which was conclusive proof of the
prisoner's guilt.    (Sensation |.
Then Dreyfus was asked the usual
question.    Tho   prisoner  pointed   out
dwelt upon the facts that ho had already acknowledged the genuiueuess
of the "Blotting pad" latter which
he reaffirmed,adding that the hypothesis that he doctored the bordereau in
order to have means of defence fell to
the grouna of itself, siuce he had
nexer attempted to turn the systum to
us. (Sensation.)
"All M. Bertillon's measures are
false; all, without exception." exclaimed tlie prisoner vehemently.
Major Carriere asked the court to
confront Col. Maurel and Captain Freystaetter. As Freystaetter, his breast
glittering with decorations, advanced
with a firm step and an air of energy,
he created a good impression. He deposed saying : "I was a jugde in the
court martial of 1894. My belief in
the prisoner's guilt was due to tbe
evidouce of experts and Ool. Henry
and Col. Du Paty de Clam. I should
say it was strengthened by the reading
of the doenmonts which were communicated to us, tho judges, in a private room. The secret dossier contained, first, a biographical dossier, imputing to Dreyfus acts of treason com-
mitted at the military college, and at
Bourges the headquarters staff. Seoond, the documents known as the
'"Oette canaille de D.-��� document.
Third, a letter whioh, bv showing
the resemblance of the ha'ndwriting
proved the genuineness of the "Cette
oaoaille de D���. document and which
will be oalled the "D'Avignon letter". Fourth a telegram from a foreign military attache very distinctly
asserting tha prisoner's gnilt. Tbis
telegram, if I remember rightly was
in the following terms, Dreyfus is arrested, emissary warned." (Renewed
cries of "Oh! Oh I)
At this juuoture, General Meroier
and Ool. Maurel jumped up together
and asked for permission to spoak.
Their action caused inteuse excitement which became breathless as Col.
Maurel stood up and both the former
judges confronted each other with do-
flant looks. Col. Maurel said: "I
have only a word to say. The other
day Labori drew me fiom the ground
of argument to the ground of secret
deliberations. I told him I hnd ouly
read a single document. These were
the words, I onlv read one document.
I did not say only one documint had
been read. " (Sensation). "I [did not
go further than that as 1 did not wish
to violate the secret of the judge's deliberations." Continuing Ool. Maurel
Baid: "In reply tn the questions of
counsel for the defense who would
have made me say more than I wished I deolared I hod only road nno document. After hearing that document
I handed the others to the clerk say.
ieg I am tired."
Tbis remark created another great
sensaiton, whioh caused Col. Jouast to
order silence. Col. Maurel, as he spoke
was greatly excited and trembled.
The lingers of his right hand opened
and shut nervously. Cpt. Freystaetter
steadfastly regarded his former colleague, his oold determined attitude
haviug an Immense effoot on the audience. M. Labori apked whether Col.
Maurel confirmed the explanations of
Capt. Freystaetter, aud what tho lattor
had said regarding Col. Maurel. The
latter ��eplied : "I answered with all
frankness and  all truth.    I only   lis
tened to the reading of the documents
very absently. It wus not interesting."
The wituess concluded with saying: "That is all monsieur 1 president
I remember nothing else."
Capt Freystaetter v,as then nsked to
give his recollections concerning the production of the secret documents at the court martini of 1894.
His manner was quiet and collected as
ho replied : 'Not only did I see them
but I assert tbat Col. Maurel had them
iu his hands and what is more I assert he made a voluntary commentary
on each document as it passed through
his hands."
Col. Manrel, very pale, vigorously
protested against the uRe of tbe word
"commentary". "I could not have
acted as CaDt. Freystaetter asserts
said Maurel. "I was too conscientious
of my duty to allow myself to influence
in auy way the judges, whose president I was. If what Capt. Freysuett-
ter has just said in regard to me, had
been done in my presence, if the president attempted to exercise pressure on
me as a judge, if he attempted tn influence me notwithstanding bis age,
rank or functions, I would have reminded him of his duty. I would
not have waited five years before
coming forward to provoke an audience
in court.    I have finished.
Addressing Col. .Touast Captain
Freystatter said : "My excuse for
my attitude my colonel, is my ignorance of legal regulation. I did not
know at all that it wns forbidden to
make any communication in the
judge's room. Moreover on A pril 8th
last I wrote Col. Maurel clearly explaining everything I intended to do
when I learned that it was irregular
to communicate documents in judge's
room. Col. Maurel admitted tl.e
truth of this statement adding j
"Oapt. Freystaetter refers to doubts
which had been awakening in hiB
mind by Col. Henry's forgery. He
spoke in the anguish by which hia con-
soienoe was tortured. I did not reply
to Captain Freystatter because I am
aoenstomed to allow every one tbe
liberty of  his opinions.
M, Labori reqneuted the judges io
note that no contradiction was offered
Captain Freystaetter, that the Paniz-
zardl telegram of November 2 was
communicated privately to judges in
1894 and under circumstances General
Mercier having testified that he had
giveu an order that the telegram should
not be oommunioated and whereas bo
had also testified that the order was
carrid out. Counsel begged the president of the court to ask Geo. Mercier
for explanations concerning his statement which contradicted his evidence.
Gen. Meroier who paid rapt attention
to what was going on, pointed out
Capt Freystatter had spoken of an act
of treason allegod to have been committed at the 1894 court martial us
having been committed by Dreyfus nt
the pyroteohnic school, adding that
Frestaetter "seemed to retniu very exact recollections of tbedoouinents communicated and asked what was referred to in the letter mentioned.
Capt. Freystaetter: '' It referred to a
shell; I see the document now perfectly iu my mind's eye.
Gen.  Mercier: " So Capt. Freystaetter was caught in tbo very aot   of   lying."
"I repeat it."
The general continued cooly amid
renewed  protests
"As a matter of fact the Robin shell
to which he refers, was only adopted
by Germany iu '95; we wero only informed of the fact of treason in '9(1."
Capt. Freystaetter adhered to his
statement thut a shell was mentioned
in tho commentary submitted to the
gonerals iu '94.
Gen. Meroier: "As fcr the telegram of Nov. Si, I maintain tbat it
was not communicated iu report of
Capt. Freystaetter: "lam oertain
that there was a telegram with words,
Dreyfus is arrested,emissary warned.'
I do not know if these words affected
the evidence of the prosecution, but
I have only testified to,that of which I
am Btrictly oertain."
Gen. Meroiier reiterated that it was
impossbile to communicate in 1894
regarding the Robin shell. M. Labori theu said : "In view of tho incident ocouring, I must insist that the
condition of Col. Du Paty de Clam be
examined into by impartial physicians.
Gen. Mercier bas stated that the
packet containing secret documents
wbb separated by Col. Du Paty de
Gen. Mercier interrupting: "Pardon me, I said I hud learned from
Gen. De Boisdeffre that the package
was brought by Ool. Du Paty de Clam.
But I also said Col. Saudherr prepared the jjaoket. "    (Sensation. ]
M. Labori: "Always the dead
Saudherr, the dead Henry. Their
testimony is constantly beiug cited. "
Continued Activity  at the
War Office.
Uncertainty as to Whether Decisive Ultimatum Pent.���Qufstion of ��uzer-
ainty to be Solved.
London, Aug. 20��� Though no aotnal
developments have apparently taken
place since the Transvaal situation
was previously reviewed in the-o dispatches, public interest in the crisis
hns been wonderfully quickened. This
is due to the dawning realisation that
Great Britain is making the most
mothodicnl   preparations   for  war.
The utter lack of official news and
the serious outlook have made the week
one of tension. Contradictory reports
from home and abroad have flourished
and on the strength of these the newspapers have see-sawed from peace to
war and vice versa hopelessly  at   sea.
Endless speculation has been indulged in regarding Kruger's counter pro
positions; but from a broad point of
view such details are not so important
as compared with the fact that tbe
President has refuse,! (some say, evaded) the "Irreducible minimum" of
Sir Alfred Milner, the Governor of
Cupo Colony aud British High Commission of South Africa.
It is now nearly a week since the
British Government has been in possession  of Kruger's reply.
Whether, in the interests of peace,
powdrs higher than Mr. Joseph Chamberlain are still temporizing or
whether or not a decisive ultimatum
is alrearty on tbe way by post to
tho Transvaal is a mere matter of conjecture. Tho n.ost conservative opinion is that the Boers will ultimately
break down but thero are no signs,
judging from the military activity of
the British war office and some activity in the South African Republic,
that such is likely to be the oase
though both sides may be using the
movement of the troops as a bluff.
That Mr. Chamberlain is not in a
pacific mood is evidenced by the puhli-
ation, subsepuent to tho reception of
Kruger's reply, of tho correspondence
between the Boer Government and Sir
Alfred Milner. Definite prognostications ns to tho outcome of the Transvaal crisis, hedged in as it is with unusual Becrecy nnd countless loopholes,
through which either side might orawl,
are thus debarred. All that can be
said is lhat in a very short period,
probably less than a week, the world
will know definitely whether President
Krugr-r finally acknowledges British
suzerainty and its potentialities or
whether he really intends to resort to
arms in order to defend hia contention.
It is palpablo tbat Great Britain
will now refuse to accept any evasion
of her suzerainty olaims whatever
other concessions President Kruger
might make.
Roads and Side Walks   to Be Repaired
���Outside Taps to Be Removed.
Tho Board of Works hold n short
meeting vesterday morning at the
City offices. Mayor Neelands, Aldermen Fletcher und Hillyer were present.
Tho following recommendations
wero made:
To lower the sidewalk on Victoria
between Josephine and Stanley streets
to the level of the road.
Thnt tbo City Enginoer be authorised to bave all streets, oroBsiugs and
sidewalks repaired.
That all service pipes on side walks
lie lowered and made level wiiti the
walks and tbat in future no service
pipes be allowed to be put in above
that level.
That the side walk on the north side
of Silica street be extended across
Kootenay street.
That the City Engineer shall havo
tho bank of the reservoir planted with
clover seed.
That the water commissioner be instructed to remove all outside taps in
connection with the waterworks excepting those used for   lawn purposes.
The desirability of having a larger
wheel for the eleotrio power honse and
also tho repairs of the wharf were also
dismissed but nothing was definitely
deoided on. The City Engineer waa
instructed to lay a box drain in Vic-
toira Mtreet from tlie ooruor of Ward
street. Messrs. Stiachan's bill for
plumbing was considered and left to
be dealt with by the Council

Nelsou Music-Lovers are Given a Sara
Opportunity for Enjoy-
���   ment-
There occurs here shortly an event of
historic and- international interest from
a musical view point, because fur the
first time will be heard in this City the
music uf un English military baud.
England's crack oragnization,the British Guard's Bund, led by the must distinguished bandmaster the annals of
England have ever known���Lient Dan
Godfrey���arrives here soon, Lieut.
Godfrey bas led the music of the British Army for forty years as conductor
of Her Majesty's Grenadier Guards,
which is the first regiment of Infantry
in the Queen's service . He is Queen
Viotoria's favorite bandmaster,and has
received many honors from her royal
hand, including the Jabilee Meial of
1887 nnd the Diamond Jubilee Olnsp of
1897. He is a lifelong friend of the
Prince of Wales, for whose marriage
he composed tho "Guards" waltz,
and is a prominent office-bearer nnd
founder of one of the most notable
Masonic lodges in the world���the
Household Brigade Lodge���of whioh
the Prince of Wales is Worshipful
Grand Muster and Lord Skelmersdale
is D. W. G. M.
The members of tho Band have all
served iu the crack Guards regiments,
and many of them wear medals for
bravery on the battlefield, one member,
Thomas Brady, trombone soloist,
having no less than four. The soloists
of the band are the finest in England
aud include F. L. Kettlewell, the premier cornetist in Great Biitain, E. S
Redern, the most notable flute player
in the British Isles, and Thomas
Byrne, a remarkable drummer and
xylophone player, who gives a solo in
which he plays no ess than twelve
different instruments. Of all the older
composers and corductors Lieutenant
Dan Godfrey is alone aotive
and vigorous today. Like Johann
Strauss, Dan Godfrey has been
composing music for the last
half century, but uulike Strauss,
who is ou his deathbed, Godfrey belies
his sixty-six years and with hair and
mustnche  still  ruddy, with firm   step
and alert vigor he is Btil! the Garter
King of English Bandmasters, Among
the best known of his waltzes which
are now almost classics and found in
every musical exorcise book, i- tin'
Mabel waltz. Older people will remember the wondefrul voguo of this
waltz. At the time it wns wri'ten
Lieut. Dan Godfrey says thnt there
were not twenty giils of the uame of
Mabel in the whole of England, and
he took the title out of a dictionary of
girls' names. The popularity of the
waltz was such that it made the name
of Mubel popular, and it is now on its
wane ns a baptismal name because it
has become of trio common use. The
waltz ruiue out to tbe United States,
and had a great run   in   this  country.
American ingenuity wanted to find
words to fit its catchy air, with the
result that "Mother may I go out to
Swim" was devised. The tunc of
the Mabel waltz has been used for years
in variety theatres to (it any new song
or amusing words requiring u tunc.
and it is sufe to sny Hint no danoe
music hail a wider or inoie world wide
The present tour of the bund through
tho United States bus witnessed
many interesting evidences of the good
feeling now existing between the two
great peoples of tho Anglo-Saxon race.
To the music of the "British Grenadiers" the Fifth Muss. Regiment
marched np Buuker Hill in Boston the
other day lead by Lieut. Dun Godfrey
and his British Guards Bund. It
was a unique scene, recalling how over
a century ago the red-oouted English
soldiers had marched down that same
hill under fur different circumstances
than amidst the cheering and the applause of the thousands gathered on
Boston Common. This was ouly one
of the many instances of international
good feeling which has marked the
progress of the most famous of English
Bandmasters and his red coated
guardsmen during their tour of America, the first note of which was struck
at the White House before President
McKinley. Splendid ovations have

beeu equally divided between the personalities of the war-scarred, medal
marked defenders of Her Majesty, and
the magnificent melodies which they
have been producing. It was of

the New York Herald said : -''The band

Warm welcomes are sure to greet the
Garter King  of  Bandmasters  and the
men when they arrive here, and their
appearance may well be considered the
sensation of the musical season. The
programme ranges from grave to guy,
in.in tbe beautiful Classic William Tell
Overture to tho Drummer's Dilemma,
in which one artist plays no less than
twelve different instruments. The
critic will be delighted with the softness of tone, tho beautiful smooth
effect suggesting both the organ and
the orchestra and the elimination of
all Dressiness and harshness, To note
again from an American critic:
"Comets soft as lutes, clnironets sympathetic and melodious as the violin
of Oie Bull, the busses thrilling with
expression und velvety richness, uud
over all a precision and u quality of
sentiment, a oneness of idea, and an
ensemble so complete and so perfect
us to appear phenomenal."
The concluding numhei tn tho evening's programme, "England and
America,"   was  composed   especially
for this tour by Lieut. Godfrey, and
represents with prophetic genius the
union of the English and American
fleets, au event which actually took

cablo report tells, "The British and
Americans fought splendidly together. " where Ensign Monaghun of
Spokane and an English lieutenant

It Takes the Money to Run u Newspaper.
St. John, (Kansas) News.
What an exaggeration ! what a
whopper! It bus been disproved a
thousand times; it is a casi of airy
fancy. It doesn't take money to run
a newspaper. It can run without
mouey. It is not a business venture.
It is a charitable institution, a begging concern, a highway robber. A
newspaper is the child of th a air, a
creature of a dream. It can go on and
on, and any other concern would be iu
the hands of a receiver aud wound
up with cobwebs in the windows. It
takes wind to run a newspaper ; it takes
gal] to run a newspaper. It takes a
scintillating, acrobatio imagination
nud a half dozen white shirts and a
railroad pass to run a newspaper. But
who ever needed money to conduct a
newspaper? Kind words are the medium of exchange to do the business
for the editor���kind words and church
ooiable tickets! When yo'i see an editor with money, watch him.    He'll be
paying   his  bill  nnd   disgraor'ug   his!
profession.    Never   give   money to nn
editor.    Make   him   liade   it up.    Ho
likes to swap!
Then   wheu   you   die, after   having
st I around for years and  sneered  at
the editor and his little jim crow paper
In- -ure and have your wife Send in
for three exir i copies ly one of your
weeping obildien, and when she reads
the generous and touching notice about
you forewarn her to neglect to send IE
ceuia (0 tne editor. It would overwhelm him. Money is a corrupting
thing. The editor knows it; what he
wants is your heartfelt thanks. Then
he can thank the printers aud they can
thank their grocers !
Take your job work to' another job
office, nnd then come and ask for freo
church notices Get your lodge letter-
beads ami stationery printed out of
town and then flood the editor with
beautiful thoughts in resolutions of
respect and curds of thanks. They
make such snicy reading and when
you pick it up filled with these glowing ami vivid mortuary articles, yon
. are so proud of your little  local paper !
But money���scorn the filthy thing.
Don't let the pure innocent editor
know anything nbout it. Keep that
for sordid tradespeople who charge
for their wares. Tho editor gives his
bounty away. The Lord loves a cheerful giver! He'll take care of the editor 11,1 bns u charter from tho State
to act 11s doormat for the company.
He will get the paper out somehow ;
nnd stand up for the town and whoop
it np for yon whim you run for office,
and lie about your pigeon-toed daughter's tucky wedding, nnd blow about
your big-footed sons when they get
a $4 a week job, uud weep over vour
shrivelled soul when it is released from

among'the moat distiognished of the
lournalists of older Camilla, whom it
is a privilege to entertain. They aie
here,many of them, foi the first time.
Iu see the things tbey have heretofore
bat vaguely comprehended. They
have heanl of the salmon of the Frawr
and of the mines of the Kootenay.
Before Kootenay was, indeed, they had
heard of Oariboo and Gassier, and other
of-onr-rich gold fields; bnt not nutil
now did they comprehend that British Colombia waa one hnge mine of in
calculable richness, and that no man
conld estimate the tremendous effect
its development was bound to have on
the fortunes  of the Dominion.
There is personal pleasure in knowing these visitors,hut the advantage of
the acquaintance on both sides will
lie iu the fact that thev carry away
with them impressions of British Columbia that will give them broader
views and greater confidence in estimating the possibilities and contemplating the future of lie Dominion.
Canada iB richer in promise than they
had thought. The fertile fields and
boundless forests of the Canada they
knew were sufficient tc make a great
country, bnt when to these are added the
Tailed and illimitable resources of the

they had conceived to be possible.
Let tbem spread the light when they

hasten the work of development.

inflicting great injury on the Province
nnd it is high time tn pot an end to it.
The Globe d.ies right to oall attention
to it in this pronounoed manner, mid
if His Honor will convey to Mr. Sem
tin an intimation lhat a.'tion of some
kind is necessary in the public iuterest
he will do what is expected of him to
help put matters right.
The Victoria Globe prints the following, in paragraphs double leaded,
as its leader of a few days ago:
"The Lieutenant-Governor knows
that the Semlin Government does not
command a majority of the House.
"Tne Lieutenant-Governor knows
that the Government has not the confidence of the country.
"The Lieutenant-Governor knows
that the Qcverntueut will be defeated
immediately the House is called together.
"The Lieutcnaut-Uovernor knows
that there is a feeling of nnrest
throughout the entire country
"The Lieutenant-Governor knows
that it is contrary to the intent of the
constitution to permit the minority to
"The Lieutenant-Governor knows
that the Ministers are incompetent.
"The Lieutenant-Governor knows
that they are only clinging to office
in orriex  to draw their salaries.
"The Lieutenant-Governor knows
that the people expect him to dismiss
the Semlin Government and thus restore public confidence.
"The Lieutenant-Governor knows
that Mr.Semlin knows he oarnot command a majority of the House.
"The Lieutenant-Governor knows
that Mr. Semlin and his colleagues
will not resign until he compels them
to do so.
"The Lieutenant-Governor knows
that the people expect him to compel
them to  do so.
"The Lieutenant-Governor knows it
is imperatively necessary that much
obnoxious legislation enacted by the
present Government should be repealed
at tho earliest possible moment.
"The Lieutenant-Governor knows
that that obnoxious legislation will be
reiiealed by tho Government which
will succeed tbe Semlin Ministry, and
that sucr action will meet with the
hearty approval of tho country.
"Tno Lieutenant-Governor knows
that British Colnmbia stinks iu tlio
nostrils of tho financial world in consequence of the freakish policy pursued
by the present Government.
"The Lieutenant-Governor knows
that the country has recoivod a setback from which it cannot recover
for a  number of years.
"The Lieutenant-Governor knows
thatJeveryJilBy the present abominable
crisis continues- the Province is suffering incalculable injury.
"The Lieutenant-Governor knows
he bus the power to set mattors right
by dismissing the Government.
"But the Lieutenant-Governor's
name is Molnnes. ���'
We do not knew that the Lieutenant-Governor knows all these knows,
but he knows enough to kuow that the
political siutation is becoming intolerable and that something must be
done very soon to relieve the anxiety.
It is not merely a matter in which the
politicians are concerned ; if that were
all it could be endured. If it were
only that Mr. Semliu was sparring for
breath, the people might look on with
patience. But unfortunately the business of the Province is influenced by
it. People are waiting, many with
apprehension and all with curiosity,
to soe what shall come out of it, aud
in tho meantime business affairs uf

Those who follow the great trial at

comprehension of all it signifies if thej

Would all esc pp. At Rennes the great
struggle is to prove the Army innocent, and to do this guilt must be fastened elsewhere, whether by perjury,

The Canadian Premier has a good
deal of work cut out for him during
the next two or three mouths, according to the dispatches. He is to make
a stumping tour through Ontario; he
is to go to London on the Aiaskau
boundary question ; he is to assist at
some elaborate function in Chicago
in connection with the laving of the
foundation stone of a large public
building, and he is to visit British Co
inmbia, These are his engagements
so far; what ethers may be made for him
by the busy correspondents future dis-

Some three years aw the Intending
settle' in Nelson would be greatly exercised in his m""1 HS t0 WDere to lo'
,..,1,. liis future home. Land agents
^ould point to Stnnley street as being
the most desirable residential street.
I ���ts there above Latimer street ouuld
then have been purchased at a oompar-
,ltivr|y small sum, but Stanley street
above that point was then more like a
rcggefl preoipioe than a street. In sum-
������.r when nut too hot it would not be
surh an arduous climb, but the very
thought of snow and frost was enough
tosraroawny the tenderfoot, "Oh,but
then we will have an eloetrio tram up
thero" some enterprising agent would
Kiy. The idea of such a thing seemed
lurliorouB theu for a one horse town of
baraly ^"0() inhabitants to havo a
st net railway when oven in Viotoria
such nn undertaking did not pay ex-
penses. Why, who would be foolish
enough to invest money in such a mad
soheme ?
Then the road to the S. F. & N. R.
station was at times well nigh impas-
snhle.and of course a sidewalk had not
even been suggested. There were certainly some nice building sites along
Water street hut the distance and tho
veritable slough of despond that tbe
so oalled street sometimes presented
made the stranger light shy of that
quarter for a homestead.
And yet if only those who then
oame to Nelson oould have peered into
the glass of the future he wonld have
seen that the snnguine agent's prophecy would come true. Tbe period
of discomfort would bave had to be
endured and theu would , have come a
rich reward in the form of an enormously increased value in land and a
delightful situation for a residence.
It is uot to be thought for oue minute that any disparagement on the
successive publio works committee
is intended. Far be it from this, for
thoy havo done their duty nobly and
have judiciously expended tbo money
thev have bad at their command in
street improvements and sidewalks.
Hut there is a limit to grading and
distance from business centres alwnvs
exists. And now these remaining
obstacles will be overcome by �� street
railway. For the Nelson Eleotrio
Tramway Company is now an accomplished fact. The rails are p.irtly laid,
the plant has been ordered nnd is now
well nigh completed, the company
has beeu registered, commodious offloOB
opened, and wo have the managing
directors assurance tbat, should nothing unforeseen occur, wo shall have the
electric cars running before the end of
The Nelson Eleotrio Tramway Company is an offspring of tbe largest eleotrio tramway oorportiou in the world,
namely the British Electric Traction
Oompany, the head offioe "f which is
in London, England. This corporation
is the parent ot some forty tramway
oompanies spread over the United
Kingdom and a few iu other European
A noteworthy departure on the part
of this great corporation is that Nelson is the first town in the Dominion
that they have singled out for an installation of their system under the
direction of a   subsidiary   company.
Mr. C. S. Drummond, the London
direotor of the Nelson Company nud
also a director of the British Electric
Traction Copmany is probably in a
great measure responsible for this. He
has many interests in Nelson both in
real estate and in mines. He is one
of tho leading spirits in the Dnnonn
Syndicate, the Granite 3old Mines
Limited, nnd the Queen Bess Proprietary Oo., Ld., all of which said companies have their head offices for tho
Province in Nelson. And doubtless
he hns found an able seconder in his
colleague Capt. Unncaii. The latter
oame to Nelson some years ago, with
little or no capital. By sheer hard
work, energy and thorough knowledge
of his calling be is now in a fair way
t" fortune, lt wonld bo hard to find a
man in Nelson who wonld begrudge
thi' gonial enptain his well earned
position for there are fow men who are
better known or hotter liked.
Thi' new line will run from the 0.
1J. It. depot along Baker stroet to Josephine street. Then down Josephine
street to Vernon stroet it will follow
tb" latter road to Front street thence
along Front street to the wharf. This
part of the lino will be the main central and from it will bo run branohes
tn tho various residential portions of
tlio town. One branoli will be run
fiom the wharf along Front and Water
Ntteots to the Eastern limits of the City
to be extended later on to Bogustown ;
another will run from Bnknr street up
Stanley Btreet, then via Miues Road,
Ko itenay and Houston street to the
skating rink, the whioh by the way
belongs to the Tramway Company.
A full description of the electrical
empnient ordered by the company has
"beady been given in The Miner. It
moy not bo amiss, however, to give a
brief resume of the contract for the
H'luipmont whioh has boon made with

This however, concerns tho company
and its shareholders and it is well to
note that Mr. C. S IJrmnmond haB
openly stated that he does not expect
much profit for the first few years
Without doubt the direotors have great
faith iu the steady incroaBe ot the town
aud its ultimate importance for on
that alone can tiny rest any open for
a fitting reward for their enterprise. It
is said that it reqnires a population
of at least 80,000 iu order to make a
street railway pay a reasonable divi
dend. If this is true the directors of
the British Traction company will give
all owners of real estate food for reflection as to whether they should sell
at the present high rate for real estate
or wait for better things. As far ns
oan be judged from the past there is
every hope of these expectatious being
fulfilled. There is one poiut in con
neotion with the street railway that
all citizens would do well to consider
and that is that whatever may be the
ultimate advantage to the Nelson Electric Tramway Oompany therjresent advantages are wholly in favor of tho
citizens. The luxury of a street railway cannot be over estimated let uloue
the enormous economy in timo which
oan be obtained by patrouising it. It
therefore behoves everyone to give
what encouragement they Dossibly oan
to the new enterprise and" thus show
tneir appreciation of the benefits that
they have received from those who
have hid the courage to speculate
their money on the prospective rise of
the Queen City of the Kootenays.

The weather clerk kindly suspended
operations long enough yosterday afternoon to allow the baseball game
between Nelsou and Grand Forks to
be pulled off aocording to schedule
The recent rains had left the diamond
in bnd shape, but nevertheless the
game wns one of the best and most interesting played here this season.
The Grand Forks nine won with a
score of seven to three. This is the
first game that the Nelson team have
lost this season on the home diamond.
The teams are about evenly matched
aud the Nelson boys oan lay t'ie defeat
rather to a run of hard luok than to
being outclassed, as the score stood
three to three until late iu the game,
when a Grand Forks batto lost the
ball over the grand stand, thereby
bringing in one man and making a
home run, wliich turned the tide in
their favor. Considering the fact
that Nelson had not played ball since
the Dominion Day games the boys put
up a neat aud   almost   errorless game.

The Miner yesterday Mr. David Morris, the engineer in charge of the gas
plant now being put in, sdirt that his
company would install in Nelson a system thut would have the advantage
of all the modern conveniences that are
known to the grs world. The Economical Gas Apparatus Construction Company. Limited, is one of the foremost
corporations of its kind in tho world
ami it has a reputation for doing nothing by halves. Its officers are: W.

Morris is the resident engineer in
charge of construction. He has nad
long experience in the gas aud coke
business in England and came out to
this country by speoial appointment to
remodel and put in thorough working
order tlie gas plants at tho Coast. His
work there stamped him as a first
class gas engineer in every   particular.

the same mast,   equally   well   cnokert,

fully  demonstrated   by ti^ts made   hh
der the auspices of lhe Franklin Institute, Philadelphia.   A coal range dries
the meat; a  gas range rooks  it.    The
baking oven can quickly  be brought to
the  required   temperature,    and   kept:
at a uniform heat ns loug as necessary,
thus  assuring .perfect bread  and pastry cooking.   These, nnd othei advantages to all of which users of gas  will

of gas as a fuel fur cooking even if the

Fine Cigars Every
Ihe Kootenay OiRar Manufacturing
Company is a sample of what oppor-
tnuities ��here ore for the right man to
WOrk op n large business in tho Koote-
mi with Nolson as his headquarters ' In April. 1898, Messrs. Ehrlioh
and James Neelands, opnned the factory for tlie purpose of supplying the
local trade On September 1st of the
Kime year they wero succeeded by the
(inn of Simpson & Donnelly, who in
turn disposed of the business to its
present proprietor, Mr, Thos. J. Sims,
Cll November 1st of last year. At that
tinin two nun and a boy were the
builds employed to turn out the cigars
to meet the orders. There are 32 new
bands employed by Mr. Sims. From
supplying the looal trade the business
has iirown to supplying the whole
Kootenay. Every month sinoe taking
the business over Mr. yims has had to
nwke additions to bis staff and to
enlarge the size of bis  premises.
Tlie two agencies that contributed to
this surprising growth of so young a
business were the excellence of the
goods manufactured and Mr. Sims careful attention to every tranch of tbe
industry. Ilnlling originally from
England, Jlr. Sims spent 10 years in
Jamaica, Wost Indies, where he
wus connected with tbo cultivation
of tobacco. Looking about for a good
field for investment he came to Nelson
last year, and a month after his arrival purchased the business that he now
controls. His experience in Jnmaicn
stood him in good stead us he knew
where to purchase tobacco to the best
advantage and as a consequence his
cigars have become great favorites on
account of the uuifom excellence < f
their leaf. Next he secured the best
oigar makers he could, bringng them
from San Fianeisco, Chicago and
oth.'r centres. None but tho best
goods were turildd out and tbey quickly
obtained a firm hold ou the market.
Mr. Sim's leading brand is the
"Royal Seal." lt is a cleat Havana
cigar, and is undoubtedly the best $70
article on the market today. Other
brands manufactured by the Company
are the "Little Gem," "Blue Bud,"
anil "Bonnie Five." The "Royal
.seal" and "Kootenay Belle" nre the
standard brands.
When Mr, Sims took bold of the Nelson factory the output was 7,000 cigars
per month, and the sales less. Now
tlry are producing 70,000 cigars per
month, and have no trouble in disposing of all they manufacture. He now
has a business iu which $15,000 i�� invested, and the output, demand nnd
capial invested nre daily growing
One feature io which is due a part of
tho Kootenay Cigar Company's success
is the prejudice possessed by West
Kootenay citizens iu favor of patronizing home industry. It is this spirit,
combined with the proof they give that
our country can turn out ns fine a manufactured article as can be procured
away from home, that builds up
great enterprises from small beginnings.

The mortality of Nelson is remarkably small. The City is adapted by
Nature as a health and pleasure resort.
No better front fishing oan be found
anywhere iu the world than is supplied by the lake and streamB within

Such figures tell stories.
The West Kootenay Brick and Lime
Co., with headquarters at Nelson employ more men than any other similar
concern in British Columbia.

held yesterday at the Company's offlc.s

Nelson, August 20, 1899.
To   the  Direetors   of   the  Exchequer
Gold Mining   Oompany.   Jjd.,   Ly.,
Nelson, B. 0.
Gentlemen���Owing to basines nttnirs
which will require my personal attention and will not allow me the necessary time to devote to the best interests of your company, I beg leave to
tender my resignation as Superintendent of the Exchequer Mine. I might
add that as I am a large shareholder
in the company I wonld uot feel justified iu doing this were it not that
we have already secured the services of
a very reliable'aud competent man in
whom I have every confidence and
who, no doubt, will prove of great
value to the company. Yours very
truly, A. H. KELLY.
Nelson. August 26, 1899.
To   the   Directors   of   the  Exchequ?r
Mining  Company, Ltd.,   Ly.,   Nelson, B. 0,
Gentlem.'ii���Herewith I hand you a
summary of tin' work done under my
management of the Exchequer Mine
since about the 1st October. 181)8, at
which time we arranged to re-com-
mence work on the property.
The mouth of October was devoted
to iuitialp reparations such a-i making trails, repairing cabins, blacksmith shops, etc.
In tbe beginning of November actual
mining and developing commenced
and up to date the work consists of
tunnelling, sinking and drifting for
the purpose of developing the main ore
The first work done was to sink a
shaft Bx7 feet in tbe clear and ?"> feet
iu depth cn the lead. Tnen a tunnel
of the same dimensions was driven
abont 50 feet in length when a short
crosscut was made to the North discovering what was supposed to be
the same vein as appeared in the shaft.
I then made u slight angle iu the tunnel and struck tin- vein in abont ;10
feet upon whioh vein we drifted about
70 feet showing   a   well   defined   vein
about three feet wide bnt of lower values than we had iu the shaft. I en-
gn ed tho services of a mining engineer
(Mr. ILiSBon of the Athabasca Company) to give a point from which to
upraise to connect with the bottom of
ihe shaft. After making the necessary survey lie advised mo that he
was of opinion tlint we were drifting
on a (liferent lelgo from that in the
shaft and that the shaft ledge should
be a short distance t) the south (say
10 feet); the air uring bad I considered it advisable to n ake au upraise and
eminent with the boliom of -he shaft
which was some 211 feet siuco which
timo we have had good air aud have
driven a short crosscut some eight feet
and strnokthe shaft vein showing the
same character and grade of ore as was
found in tho shaft. We have also
stripped the vein ou the surface and
made several ouen cutH demonslrat
ing the continuity of the veiu on the
There nre fully 200 tons of ore now on
the dump and a shipment of the first
class ore is ready to be made
The qnestion of the cheapest and
best mode of carrying the ore from
the shaft to the Hall Alines Tramway
has been under my consideration and
after consultations with some engineers on tho subject I hnve arrived at
a conclusion aud the cable and other
appliances are now at the mine ready
to be placed in position. Yours verv
trnly, A. H. KELLY. '
Mr. Kelly's resignation was duly accepted, the board tendering linn their
hearty thanks for his past services
uud Mr. Musson, C. E., of the Athabasca mine was unpointed superintendent in Mr. Kelly's stead.
Mr. Musson will take charge of the
mine from tbe 1st of September next
nud will have the assistance and
advice of Mr. Nelson Fell of the Atlia
basoa when needed. The new superintendent will make surveys of the
work and report from time to time to
tin- directors on the progress und condition of the mine.
The directors expressed themselves
as highly satisfied with the present
aspect of the mine, in fact it had exceeded their most sanguine expectations. Shares have been recently sold
in Chicago, Toronto and Nelson at 16
cents. Specimens of the ore have been
sent to the Spokane and New Westminster exhibitions.
Mr,   Kelly will personally   supervise
the coufltruc'ion   of   the   aerial   tram
whioh will connect tin' mine with  the
Hall Mines Tramway.
