THE CRISIS IS AT HAND
Vi

Imperial G-overnment Must do it.
ENGLAND WILL NOT BE SURPRISED.
Straining Every Nerve to Equip and Transport Troops to

London, Sept. 20.���Despite nil out-
wind show of calm, Groat Britain is
in practically tbo nnmo condition us
was the United States a few weeks before the opening of wur with Spain.
Beneath the crust of diplomatic reserve
the military official, aro working night

hostilities, whether it comes or not.
England is not to be naught napnlng
any more tbini the Transvaal. While
Lord Salisbury is quiet nt home in
Ilatlit'lil House, Mr. Chamberlain is
buried in work at the Colonial office,
ami forces at the Koyal Ai senilis (look

Britain hns demanded tho dismantlement of the forts at Johannesburg, together with a material rednotlon in
tlie armauient of tho Burghers, the
Colonial Ollice tiuiav would neither confirm nor deny, although
it is imioh doubted. Meanwhile the
Marquis of Lansdowne, Secretary of
State for War, who returned this morning from Dublin, has held lung conferences with General Lord Garnet
Wolsoley, Field Marshal, and General
Sir Evelyn Wood, Adjutant General
tn the foices, and the activity at headquarters is reflected in the contract,

This evening the Marquis of Lane-
il'rwiie issued strict orders to the staff
of lhe War Office, warning nil subordinates to refrain from giving the press
any information without authority of
Iheir superiors, and calling attention
to previous breaches of duty in this re-
apeot, which, the order suys, "will no
longer be tolerated."
Advices from Capetown this evening
nre to effect that the Uitlundors declare
the Transvaal will not reoede,and tbat
if the Imperial Government does not
recede from its present position war
is inevitable.
Tbe South African News supports
the contention of the Trmisvunl that
the convention of 1884 abolished the
suzerainty. According to other nil-
vices the Burghers nre rapidly going
Into Laagai, while tho exodus from
Johannesburg yesterday exceeded 10,-
000 persons. Tbn stonk exehnnge at
Johannesburg hns resolved to close, the,

the meantime the merchants nro erecting barricades in front of thoir shop
windows.
Al Pretoria the inttrest seems to be
centered in the meeting of the Orange
Free Stato Volksraad tomorrow
(Thursday) which it is hoped tuny
somehow suggest n modus ..vend! that
would save the situation. On the other
baud advices from Hlnemfoiitcin announce the arrival  there   of   a   large
number of members of the Raad, adding that the result of tomorrow's sitting is already agreed upon, us the Orange Free State will throw in its lot
with the Transvaal, all the Freo State
Burghers being fully armed aud ready
to start a moment's notice.
" A special from Johnnesburg says that
450 persons left by one train today.
The Kigbt Hon. Sir Wm. Hnrcourt,
Liberal member of Parliament for
Weal Mnniouthshiro, and former leader of the Liberal opposition in the
House of Commons, in rhe course of an
iiddrcs- m his constituents this evening in Tredgar, said he could not read
tlie persistent attempts of the war
to aggravate the trouble in the
Transvaal, without indignation and
reprobation. "Grent. Briitaoi," saiid
the   speaker,   "ennnot   olnim   general
Duur>.'.iitl.     ���       . i   -    fn .        ,
has only partial suzerainty,and Kruger
can't claim for the Transvaal the position of an international sovereign
state. Both sides, therefore, have
made allegations which cannot be
maintained by either.'"
Sir William declared that there was
no casus belli, and expressed tho hone
thnt a shameful catastrophe might be
liveried.
Natal, addressing tho Australian mining officials nt Karl's Court, London,
also referred to the probability of war. I The New Mncl
He hoped pence wns still possible, but
if war came he prayed that the sword
might never be sheathed until Great
Britain hnd gone to the root of the evil
which bus caused the present difficulties.
Aooording to tbe Capetown correspondent nf rhe Daily News, President
Kruger in bis personal appeal to Hev
Majesty addressed the Monarch as
"Dear Queen."
A special dispatch from Rome says
that thn Italian Government, in reply
to Mr. Kruger's request for intervention, bad advised him   to yield.
The Johannesburg correspondent of
the Morning Post says:
"The Boer proportions are as complete as tbe Government can hope to
make them. It is believed that Martial Law will be proclaimed ou Thursday, if no reply is received from England by that lime. It is understood
thai tbe despatching of British troops
to South Africa will he regarded as
caucus belli."
Tho officers are urging the Government to begin hostilities forthwith. It
is felt that tho Orange Free State can
best ba forced to action by a successful
military demonstration on tbe part of
the Transvaal.

MUD BESPATTERED DYNAMO.
fa
Capetown, Sept. 30.���Sir Alfred Milner's despatch to President Steyn informs him flint the British and Transvaal Gcvernnients are still in hopes of
a friendly settlement. Should this
hope be disappointed, Sir Alfred says
he looks to the Qiange Free State to
preserve strict neutrality and to prevent military intervention by any of
its citizens.
iiiiery Slipped Oil the

it now appears that Ihe electric service will not be up to the mark by tbe
16th of October, the date set for the
completion of the alterations hy tho
contractors, Tho dynamo, which arrived some davs ago, wm received in
very bad condition, as it bnd slipped
oil' lhe Hut car on which it was loaded,
and It'll into n bank of mild. It looked
inure like a clny model of a piece of
machinery than the machinery itself.
Tbe car must havo becomo lopsided in
rounding a curve and so dislodged
its cargo, It will take some time to
put tbe dynamo into proper condition,
and this will, of necessity, deluy the
completion of the contract. The O. P.
R. may be held responsible for the de-
lav. The woik is being pushed ns rapidly as possible, and no time will be
lost in improving the service.
Meanwhile consumers wbo arc
grnmhlirig so vigorously about the
present condition of the light should

is doing its best to make the light perfect, mid that it cannot be up to the
mark while the work of improvement

WAR IN SIGHT.
Events will move so rapidly from
now on that tho prediction of the morning 111 regard to affairs iu the Transvaal
may be disproved before tbe afternoon is half spent. Anything like
speculation,therefore, is apt to be dangerous. Among yesterday's dispatches
is an unobtrusive intimation that in official circles in London there still remains the glimmer of a hope that war
with the Boers may be averted. There
is little in the other intelligence 00m-
municated to encourage us to share it.
When on both sides is observed nervous
activity in preparing for the worst, we
have little choice but to conclude that
the worst in on the point of happening. If Mr. Chamberlain were dealing
with a less obdurate race, it would be
permitted us to cherish a hope that negotiations might even at this late hour
aohieve something. But such a storm
has beeu raised in tbe Transvaal that
even the wily Kruger, if ever so much
disposed, could hardly lay it now ; aud
there is no occult evidence that he is
in the least disposed.
We take the situation of the moment
to mean that the London authorities,
despairing of a peaceful settlement,
are playing for time. That would bo
natural, and as prudent as natural.
They have been depending too much
ou diplomacy, and have not hurried in
those precautionary measures which
are now felt to be necessary. The Boer
President would seem to have a similar
to advanoe his own preparations. If
this is the position of things, an outbreak of hostlities may ocour ai any
time. And in any case it would require an exceedingly sanguine temperament to hope to discover in tbo present critical situation the leajr ground
for hope that it  may not occur at all.
cd up tn the time of the Rennes trial |
An acquittal might have been the
spark to cause the explosiou. Evidently the authorities feared it might be ;
and against reason anil common sense,
and in contempt of all evidence worthy
of the name, a verdict of guilty was
brought in. That pleased the Army,
which was more on trial than was
Dreyfns. Now comes the pardon,
which pleases Truth aud Justico without reviving the animosity of the
Army. The latter, iudeed. is too re-
Ijoioed at its own escape to quarrel
I with il. Thus peace is restored in distracted France. It looks as if all tbis
bad beeu planned in order to avert the
danger of a revolution. The liberty
or life of an individual may count for
little in the balance against the safety
of a nation ; but what a confession of
instability, and what an unnatural and
extraordinary price to pay for present
peace!     	
In spite of very gross mismanagement the Atliu country ie prospering.
Speaking on this subject in the first
issue of the paper, tbe Atlin Globe, recently established, said: "Was ever a
country more unfortunate in the conditions under which it began its business career than this one? From the
very moment that the first discoveries
were made last year, mistake after mistake, blunder after blunder, official
crime after crime, followed one another with a regularity and certainty perfectly frightful. The original locators
staked under tho misapprehension that
Atlin was in the N. W. Territories,
causing endless confusion and loss; the
Government passed au Anti-Alien Act
that paralysed in a moment the efforts
and hopes of hundreds of American
citizens who were prepared to throw
in the might of their labor, intelligence, experience, and capital into the
development of tho district. This summer, for twj months and a half (the
best working lime of the year), the
mines of the district were tied up
through tbe direful inactivity of the
Government aud the delays of the law.
Nevertbe'ess, what do we find now?
Atlin now, amongst those who know
the district,has a fairer reputation and
a more brilliant future in sight for it
than ever before. It ib a testimony to
the ascertained richness of our mines,
aud an indication that among those
who know there is an unquestioned
faith iu tbe future." We require to
have a country of more than ordinary
resources to stand all the ill usage it
gets.

The pardon of Dreyfns has been accepted in Paris without any manifestation ot feeling on either side. There
is au entire absence of anything like
excitement. And if this indifference or
quiet satisfaction or acquiescence prevails in Paris, we may be sure it will
throughout France, aud even more profoundly, for of all Freuohmen tho Parisians are the most easily swayed by
emotions. Not at any time during
the closing century have a people Been
more roundly abused by the other nations than were the French during the
past week or two for their treatment
of Dreyfus. In fact, two years ago and
more the civilised world became convinced of the innocence of tho Devil's
Island prisoner. Other Europeans and
all Americans and Britons everywhere
had no doubt that he hnd been sacrificed in order to conceal official stupidity and rascality. That conviction has
grown since, and when Dreyfus was
declared guilty a second time, nn evidence which would not be accepted in
a British oourt to impugn the oh irao-
ter of a dog, popular indignation rose
to a high pitch and Frauce was called
all tho hard uurnes tho tongue or pen
could invent.
Was  tbere  method in France's outrage on justice?   Tho  Miner ventured
to suggest as mnch wheu the   last verdict   was   pronounced.   Tbe   Oourt of
Cassation   which   ordered   a   revision
virtually declared   Dreyfus to be innocent.    President Loubet, his  Minister
of War, and  indeed   all  his  Cabinet,
are  understood to have been convinced
of   bis  innocence.    Yet at the Rennes
trial there was a public  proseoutor  in
the person of  Commissioner  Carriere,
who manifested as much eagerness for
conviction as the   most  bitter   of  the
prisoner's enemies. There bas not been
a feoture  of  the oase throoghout that
docs not seem strange and bewildering.
Thore  most have been method iu this
national madness, and we find   tbe explanation   of  it   in the cable dispatch
which tells us that the pardon of Drey-
fus has failed to create the   least   feeling.
For two years past Frauce has been
on the brink of a revolution, mainly
through the Dreyfns affair. History

MATTER IS ENDED
OITZ s��.TTLE3 THE TROUBLE OVER
RESERVOIR LOTS.
Aid.   Beer Wired  Yesterday   That   the
Owners Had Aocepted $1125 as
a Final Settlement.
The lonf? standing trouble between
ihe Nelsou Oity Council and the Nel-
inn Laud and Improvement Company
over the lots that were calmly appro-
Piiuted bv the first Council for reservoir purposes has been settled. Three
City Councils nnd three sets of lawyers
have wrestled with it without success,
and it remained for City Clink Stra-
rban to try the effect of bis sunny
ways ou the owners at the coast. He
came hack a few days ago with tho re.
port thnt the matter could probably bo
settled for 11,300, although the owners
placed $1,000 as their minimum figure.
Then Aid. Beer went to the coast to
settle the matter for not more than
$l,.0l), and yesterday ho wired tho
ayor that a settlement had been effected for $1,125. Tbe general feeling will
bn that the Oity is well rid of a
troublesome question and has made i\
highly satisfactory settlement.
THE BOUNDARY COUNTRY.
Interesting News Gathered By a Traveller in That Region.
Mr. R B. Dixon, who has travelled
extensively throughout the Boundary
oountiy, in speaking of that region
says:
"One bas only to say he came from
the Boundary country and he is askud
a dozen questions in one breath by as
many people, such as 'What kind of a
place is Phoinix?' 'Is Grand Porks a
goal town?' 'What do yon think of
Gieenwood?' 'What are they doing ont
there anywayV 'Tell us all abont it.'
"The people have not heard of Columbia and Summit City fownsites because thoy are not fully advertised,
these two places afford just as good
opportunities for the persevering and
industrious business mnn to settle in
us any town in the  Boundary country.
"Cascade is the first regularly constituted cily one meets with on the
road to the Boundary, either by stage
or railway.
"It was built up last year during the
construction of the Robson-Midway
railway and its immediate future prospects are very promising. As it now
stands it is bounded on the south and
east (I had no compass and am speaking from memory) by the celebrated
Burnt Basin mineral deposits. Also
the many promising claims located
and being vigorously developed in
the vioinity of Christina Like.
^ "So soon as these properties reach
the shipping stage, the Cascade people
say the C. P. R. has promised to erect
a smelter there. The facilities are all
that could be desired.
"The Cascade falls are beiug conserved by the company having the
franchise for developing and supplying
sufficient electricity to supply all the
mines in tho Boundary country with
electric power for all purposes.
"The city of Cascade boasts of
Messrs. Ruchison Bros , general store,
with branches at Gladstone aud Christina Lake. MinerB, prospectors and
mining men generally find this establishment a great convenience, as they
carry everything peculiar to the mining industry, as well as all things, including the proverbial needle and
anchor suitable for the general publio.
Tbere are fourteen hotels, a wholesale
liquor store, a very nice post office, a
good school and all the ether minor
establishments peculiar to a go ahead
wostorn town. Running a newspaper
in A small community is up hill work
at the best, but it is at the same time
the mnin feature in making a real city
out of a town on pnpnr. The Cascade
Record deserves everv credit in tbis respect. The paper is bright and racey,
up to date in everv respect, nnd it is
hoped will he a continued success.
"Two've miles further west we come
to Grand Knrks. When we realize that
we really are iu the wild aud woolly
west. Here is to be fonud nestling
cosily under a hnlf-oiroletl rnnge of
bills through which the North Fork of
the Kettle River flows, the city cf
Grand Porks, with the most liberal
and perhaps tho best system of municipal government enjoyed by any incorporated community on the continent of
Amorioa.
"The Mayor, City Council and
Board of Trade are up to date men
fully imbued with twentieth century
ideas, whi.h are always red hot and
humming over for expansion and the
general giod of the commonwealth.
"The city is beautifully looatod, tho
Btreets suitably laid out, graded and
tho sidewalks sufficiently wido to urive
a carriage and four on and have a foot
path to sparo. The city comprises
everything one needs. General stores,
fanny goods,druggists, the medical and
legal professions. All denominations
are represented. A nico, well conduct
ed poltofflot, fire hnll, police, who by
the way, do not look for orimo, but on
the contrary try to always suppress it,
believing in the good old theory that
'prevention is better than cure,' and
last but not least there are several flue
hotels, wher(, really good accommodation is afforded,
"Grand Forks is surrounded with
some very valuable mining properties,
out on Hardy's Mountain and ou the
next range north of the Kettle River,
then up the south side of Kettle River
nro the Pathfinder, English and Piench
mines and many others. The Granby
Co.'s smelter is being erected jnst one
milo out from the city on the bank of
the river. There are three or four saw
mills running night and day in the
vicinity, anil ns many brick yards. A
weekly paper and a promised daily puper, all of which go to build up a city
in a  hurry.
"The railway is now running iuto
Grand Forks,and the hardships hitherto experienced in getting there are a
thug of the past.''
LOCAL  AND  PERSONAL

Company is expected to attend tbe

Another acetylene gas generator, tho

Phair.
While not laying claim to special
knowledge in matters pertaining to
natural philosophy, the mining editor
of The Miner cleBires to say that after
careful researoh he is prepared to state
tbat the evil work ascribed to the alleged "kissing bug," was oerpetrated
either by tbe melonolestes picipos, the

ho in a flna condition. The reoent

por and .ilvei i.- still holding out and
getting better. Tho oro is of such
high grade and so clean that it needs
no sorting. It is believed that this
vein is the main ore carrying fracture
Of   the group, though there are several
others showing shipping mineral.

Tin' True Blue, on the mountain
west of Kaslo, hus slatted again wth a
small force of men.
* *   *
The Leviathian mine, at Kaslo,
which has been working steadily since
last winter, has closed down. It is
thought for only a shore time. The
Leviathan is situated across Lako
Kootenay from Kaslo, on Campbell
(.'reek, aud is considered one cf tho
most promising prospects for a mine
in the district. It has an enormous
vein of arsenical iron aud yields in as-
sny values from $8 to ..lo in ��old pel
ton. It canies a good per cent in copper, which will undoubtedly increase
as depth is gained on ihe lodge.
* *       *
The True Blue is to be pumped out
preparatory to starting up again. \n
effort will ho mado to pump it out by
hand pumps. II this cannot he done,
it will he necessary to start Iho machinery which will necessitate putting
iu new pipes, as the chemical properties of the water in tho mine have so
eaten the pipes that they leak badly.
* *   *
Work on the governmeut wagon road
ou the South Fork of Kaslo Oreek, ii
being prosecuted vigorously. The road
work commenced this summer at the
Montezuma concentrator. It will 1
built on about six miles further this
fall. Mr. Alex McKeuzio, who has the
work in charge, expects to finish some
time next month. This road is of greal
mportance to mine owners on the
South Fork, for wheu it is finished it
will give them an opportunity tn get
iheir ores to market.
* *   *
The long tunnel mil by the Noblo
Five company at Sandon, to tap the
Last Chance ledge at a depth of 1500
feet, is reported to be within 80 feet of
its destination. The work on tbis tunnel is being closely watched by mining
men in Spokane, us, should tho tnnnel
strike the Last Chance ledge in ore, it
is freely predicted that Noble Five
stock will go at par.
* *   *
Two hundred aud fifty tons of machinery for tho Mountain Lion mill at
Republic, is arriving at Grand Forks,
hy rail. It will be hauled iu wagons
to its destination. The Mountain Lien
oro will be treated by stamps and
cyanide, known as the combination
process. Tho Republic mine will
shortly begin the shipment of thirty
tons of ore daily from Grand Forks to
the Trail smelter.
��       ���       *
Mr. Hugh Sutherland in an interview
with The Rossland Miner of thi rj-!,i
inst., in speaking of the large mining
properties in which he is intere.-b ii,
says: "Wo are now installing a great
deal of new machinery at these mines,
and in a month will be ready to employ a large force of men continuously,
but I cannot sav just what we will do.
As matters look at present in regard to
labor, wo will certainly stand pat, and
do little or uo underground work.
It wonld he impossible at tbs present timer to interest capital under tho
existing state of affairs. "
