Tenth Year
DREYFUS DAY AT RENNES
Prosecution Is Now Split Up Into Three
Distinct Coteries.
GENERALS ARE MEDITATING A COUP.
First Portion of a Condensed History of the Dreyfus
Drama-Complete Text of the "Bordereau" and
"Petit Bleu "���Barbarism in France.
Rennes. Aug. 8.��� The air of Rennes
this evening is filled with ruin ore of
conspiracies, and predictions of coups
hut nothing prooiseoan l>o ascertained.
General Meroier"a attitude dnring
the last few days has mystified his followers in the csae. He is extremely
clover nnd the general feeling is
that he is preparing something, ihe
existence of which will he revnled in
n few duys It is now accepted beyond
question that there is a serious divis-
1 ,ii of opinion on the part of generals
While tne euse was runiltng smoothly
ugninst Captain Dreyfns, they nil
pulled together hot since the tide of
evidence begun to turn in his favor, aa
was notably the oase dnring the test-
imoiiy of Oaptain freystatter and Col
Cordier, which proved much more
damaging to the general staff than the
latter anticipated, oertain dividiiiip,
lines have become manifest between
the various cliques. Gen. Roget, Major Lauth, Oaptain Ouignet and M.
Qribelliu, the principal keeper of the.
archives of the war office, form one
coterie, General Mercier nnd (ieueral
Goose, form another and Gen. Billot anil (Jen. do Boisdeffre a third. According to one report the first two CO-
teieR intend to throw over Gen. De
Boisdeffre whom they feel to ho falter.
Irg and declare that lit; is responsible
for all the errors and illegalities of
tbe court martial of 18(11, thus making
him the scape goat. According to another report, Gen. Roget, who wus nut
implicated in 18!)4 and who evou fought
against Dreyfns because he inherited
from his pjedecessors tho responsibility for so doing aud placed over-eonlid-
euce iu the accounts of the matter furnished him by the general staff, will
out himself loose from Generals Mer-
cior, Goiisa aud De Boisdeffre. This
in a plausible hypothesis, since Koget
has assumed throughout tho role of do
fonder of tho army, thus making himself popular with the army nneVwitha
large section of the nation and ha probably would not loao by separating himself from the wrong-doers of 18!)4, and
declaring that his opinion had been
changed by the evidence given during
the present trial,
Still another story is that tie gen-
eralB are going to give way cn the an-
Uiorship of tho bordereau in view of
the strong expert evidence and will
admit that Esterhazy wrote it, allowing however, that Dreyfus furnished
the information not direct to Ester*
hazy but to another party. In this
connection it whs assoited this after-
noun that Madame Hastinl, who was
housekeeper for Ool. Sohwurtzkoi-pou,
tho German military attache in 181)4,
and who is understood tohii.'e acted as
a Froueh spy has heen seen in Rennes,
��ud will bo summoned as a witness
concerning Bohattekoppen's espionage system. AU these rumors may lie
without foundation bnt in any event,
they are evidence of tho feeling in
Rennes that something is going ou under tho surfiiou, and that the present
"tngo of tho trial may be altered by
lome oonp at any moment. Iu the
matter of evidence, today was quite
a Dreyfus day, ouly the deposition of
the Inst witness, Geu. DeLoyo, being
unfavorable The testimony of M. Pi-
OOt, a uiomher of the institut , is uot
likely however to serve the cause of
the aroused materially, if at oil, bo-
�����ho his introduction of Ool. Schneider, tho Austrian military attache.aH a
Chatap|on of Dieyfns was rather calculated to; arouse resentment and adversely to inlluenoo the judges especially us it was followfd by Geu. Ro-
����'�� tactful protest against Ool.
��� ehnaider's uncomplimentary allusions
���0 1 renoh officers.
Tomorrow's proceedings behind clos
ed doors will deal with the question
whether Oaptaiu Drefyus was in a position to divulge the information regarding the army which was promised
in tho bordereau. The session will he
very important and is bound to have
a tromenduous influence on tbe judges
one way or the other because they are
all artillery officers, and will be able
to appreciate such evidence better than
the ci yptographio iutrioaoies that bave
been laid befote them by the hand
writing experts. The Drefyusards express confidence that their artillery
witnesses, Major Haremunti and Major
Ducros, will effectively satisfy the
judges that Drefyus was ignorant of
the matters mentioned in the bordereau aa an artillery officer wonld not
have been guilty of stating the enors
which it contained. The local papers
publish tno doubtful statement that
M. Oharles de Freyoinet, on leaving
the court room yesterday after his deposition remarked to a friend: "I
am    loaving    an   atmosphere  of  ac-
qu it tal."'

RESUME OF THE CASE.
Europe, in fact the whole world is
now convulsed by the unravelling of a
terrible plot, a drama of combined
cruelty and cowardice which makes
honest aud reasonable men wonder and
marvel ut the existence of mediaeval
oppression and raachiavellism in the
last days of tho enlightened nineteenth
century.
And the key to the whole tetralogy,
the "piece de rcsistuuDe" consists of a
little bit of thin paper, stfredert into
many peicea, but whioh wheu put together, means that, a traitor existed in
the highest official cireleB in France.
Tho other morning, somewhere about
tho timo when ordinary unintelligent
mortals break their fast but when that
snperior being, the journalist, should
be still sleeping the Bleep of tbe just,
a member of The Miner's staff wus
rudely awakened from his Bleep of innocence by an ardent student of the
Dreyfus case who had a complaint to
make. He and his wife had had an
argument about the meaning of "dos
Bier" and "bordereau," which might
have ended disastrously had not the
sleeper awakened and explained. Then
came a letter from another praising
the dailv reports of the oase in The
Miner, but suggesting that (as must
of necessity happen wilh telegrams)
tbe said reports were a little disjointed and that the writer would give
worlds to know what the "petit
bleu" waB.
As The Miner has not s��nt n speoial
correspondent to Rounos, it is dependant for its news of the trial on the
genius who inspires tho Associated
Press telegrams until, of onnrso, the
European papers aro received some
fourteen days old. Under these oir-
cumstances it may not come amiss to
our readers if a short history of
"1 affaire Dreyfns" he givon:
On September I, 1804, oue of the
spies employed by the Intelligence
Department of the French War Office
brought to his employers some pieces
Of paper whioh were said to have been
taken from the waste paper basket of
'Jolonel Von Sohwarzkoppon, the military attache to the German embassy.
These fragments when put together
formed what is uow known as the
"bordereau" and read as follows:
"Without news indicating that yon
wish to see me. I am sending yon,
nevertheless, Sir, somo InteroHting information. :
1. A noto on the hydrnulic break of
tho 120 and on the way in which thiB
piece behaved.
a. A   note    on   the  covering  troop
(troupes de converters).    Some modi 11
cations will he entailed   by   tbo  new
plan.
li.  A note on a modification in nrtil-
lcry formations.
" 4. A note relative to Madagascar.
li. The project for a tiring manual
for field artillery, March 14, 18114.
This last document is extromoly difficult to procure, and I can only have it
at my disposal for a very few days.
Tho Minister of War has sent a limited
number of copies to the ssveral corps,
and these corps are responsible for it,
each officer is to send his copy baok af
ter the manoeuvres. If, therefore, you
will take from it what interests yuu
and hold it afterwards at my disposal,
1 will tnke it, unless yon should desire
that I should have it copied in extenso
and then send you the copy. I am
about to go to the manoeuvres."
The alliance with Russia aud the
strong Catholic element which still exists in Franca has for some time fostered a fooling of envy aud resentment against the Jews who in Paris
represent the chief bunking houses and
iu fact are the rnonted class there. It
is the history of Europe again. The
same thing happened in Florence under
the rule of Lorenzo da Modici���himself
a Jew hanker���during the Rennaisauce.
In England Ooour do Lion pillaged
the Hebrews, who then were the usurers of Europe. But France, is out of
date or else (according to Max Nor-
dan) degenerating. No sooner was the
cry "nous Pommes trahis" raised than
it was blended with "a bas les juifs"
and thd anti-semite press weut so far
as to hint that amoug "tlie Dreyfuses,
the Mayers and the Levys" the traitor would be fonnd. On October 15,
Drefyus was secretly arrested by Ool.
Du Paty de Clam and charged wilh
having divulged to a foreign country
the contents of secret documents belonging to the War offioe. It transpired that Du Paty de Clam.suspecting.or
rather desiriug to show that the writing on the bordereau was that of Dreyfns, had asked the latter into his room
for the purpose of taking down a letter
whioh he (Du Paty de Clam) dictated
in terms resembling those of the bordereau so as to compare better the
writing. (It, should be noted that
both Dn Paty de Clam and Drevfus
were officers'on the staff of the Intelligence Department). No sooner was
the letter complete 1 than Dreyfus wus
arrested and taken to the Cherche Midi
Military Prison of which Major For-
zinctti was then governor. Dreyfus
waB escorted to the prison by Commandant Henry who gave orders to tho
governor that the prisoner was to be
secluded and treated with the rigor
meted ont to common criminals. At
the prison Dreylu.J was frequently visited by Du Puty de Clam who examined the prisoner and endeavored, but
in vniu, to wring an admission of
guilt from him. Major Forzinetti
gave a terrible account cf the sufferings endured by the unhappy man at
the Oherohe Midi nnd expressed his
conviction of the innocence ot Dreyfns
On December li), 1894, Dreyfns was
tried hy court martial at the Oherohe
Midi prison. No allusion to documents were permitted and when Maitre
Demange, tbe prisoner's counsel, referred to the "solitary document" the
Government prosecutor, commandant
Brissel, interposed and the president
finally reprimanded Maitre Demange
for "raising the discussion of the essentials of the caso" and had the court
cleared, the rest of tho trial being continued behind elosod doors. The only
witnesses were Heury, Dn Paty de
Olam and three experts in handwriting (Pelletier, Oharuvoy and Teysson-
lere). Du Paty de Clam wns convinced of Dreyfus' guilt because of the
"nervous movement of his font when
interrogated" and "tremblings" when
asked to copy the letter which he (Du
Paty de Olam) dictated. Heury said
he too was convinced of the guilt of
the accused but when pressed for a reason said "1 am a soldier, und my cup
must ignore what is in my head.'1
The evidence of tho hand writing experts was contradictory. It seems almost iuiredible that a verdict of guilty
was brought in on such miserable
flimsy pretences of ovidence as above
staled and Drefyus wus sentenced to
lifo imprifioument in a fortified place
und military degradation. Tho latter
part of the sentence was carried ont
with horrible solemnity at tho Boole
Milituire on January 8, 18!lii, amid
shouts of "A mort! Amort! Judas!
Dirty Jew I" from the crowd aud he was
then hurried away to a living death on
a lonely island off the coast of French
Guiana known as the llodu Diablo (island of the devil).
The war office were delighted with
the result of the court martial und
Du Paty de Olam was promoted to u
colonelcy.
Two years passed, a change of Ministry occurred and General Billot as
head of tho War Office in the loom of
Meeier, and Ool. Picquart, successor to
Sandberr ut the Intelligence Department appear on the scenes. In Paris
post cards aie for a sou (ono cent) dis-
putohed to auy point within the oily
by menus of pneumatio tubes. These
poatoards correspond to our letter cards
in that they are folded uud gummed
together. They aro UlDOd in thin
blue paper aud are known ns "pel its
bleiis". One dav a spy brought to (Jolonel Picquart the fragment i of u "petit blen" found, it wus alleged (simi-
liarly to the bordereau) in a waste paper basket at tho German embassy.
When put together this "petit bleu"
read as follows:
"I await before eveiything a more
detailed explanation thau that which
yon gave me tho other day upon tho
question at issue. I beg of you, therefore, to give it to mo in writing, so
tbat I can judge if I may continue my
relations with the   firm   of  R or
not."
Tho OBrd was directd to "M.le Oom-
maudaut Esterhazy, 27, Rue de la
Bienfaisance."
Picquart immediately sought out
this Esterhazy who was a major of infantry with nn nnfavoroblc record.
Bertillon, the expert who had identified lhe writing of the borloroiiu wilh
that of Dreyfus now pronounced lhe
bordereau to b�� iu the writing of Es-
terhuzy. Picquart nppea'.ed to Generals
Gome and Do Boisdeflre of the general
staff to "not at once" us he believed
Drefyus was innocent. And now began the most disgraceful part of the
whole affair. The persecutors of Dreyfns became conspirators In counteracting the work of the fearless, outspoken Pioqoart.

Transvaal Events Move Rapidly Towards Hostilities.
CHAMBERLAIN  SPEECH
It Makes the Boers Think They Must
Tight-A Warlike Storv From
Eeattle, Washington.
(Continued on Fourth Page.)
Loudon, Aug. HO.���The Pretoria correspondent of the MoruingJ Post says:
The Boer officials, nfter reading the
cabled reports of Mr. Chamberlain's
Birmingham speech, consider that war
is inevitable. The spee( h baa undoubtedly inflamed the war spirit here. The
Boers are now all alarmed except those
in? Johannesburg. Their commissiar-
iat is fairly good. All the forts are amply victualled. Ammunition whioh
Mr. Schreiner allowed to pass through
Cape Colony came direct to Pretoria.
It was never intended for the Oiango
Free Stato. Preaident Kruger does not
hesitate to express tho view that war
is inevitable. He has Btocked the
presidency with ample supplies of provisions to secure his own person from
privation and he is often heard repeating the THrii Psalm. The Boers are
energetically engaged in poisoning the
minds of tbe natives against the British and they have approached tbe Zulu
Chief Dlnizulu, who appears undecided what cause to espouse. But Zulus
are prepared for the expected fighting
and it must be remembered that Dini-
zulu waa deported to St. Helena with
several other chiefs and kept a prisoner
there by the British for several  years.
Tho Time says editorially thiB
morning: "There is the best reason to
believe that the recent noto of Mr.
Chamberlain will bo almost the last
occasion on whioh Great Britain will
ask President Kruger whether ho is
iu earnest iu his promises of concessions. Tho note undoubtedly called
for an immediate answer, and, wheu
a reasonable timo for answer has elapsed, Great Britain will no longer pay
much attention to President Kruger
but will form ber judgment bv his
actions. Tho Boers should bear hi
mind that throughout the whole controversy, the Cologne Gazette haa
warned the Transvaal that it was
placing itself iu an unfavorable position, and that in the event of war,
nobody would lift a finger to prevent
tho destruction"of tho Repulbio.''
A ROW IN THE ASSEMBLY.
Capetown, Aug. 80.���There was a
violent scene in tho Cape House of Assembly today when Mr. Cecil Rhodes
repeated his conviction that the Transvaal secret service fund was largely
used during the lust Capo Colony elections for the expenses of the Afrikander candidates. He said he hoped that
ic tho forthcoming Transvaal settlement tho secret servico payment list
wonld be destroyed as otherwise many
Capo families would feel uncomfortable. Several Ministerialists wero afterwards reproved from the chair for
fiercely retorting against this statement. The Government bus refused to
provide facilities for women aud
children to leave Johannesburg. There
is great activity at the Simotistowu
dockyard in drilling men on shore and
overhauling vessels.
MORE AMMUNITION,
London Aug. Ul.���The Daily Mail
snys it learns that u large consignment
of cartridges for the Boers has recently
been shipped through German agents.
These it says were manufactured in
England. 	
SOME GOOD ADVICE.
Berlin Aug. IK).���The Nodestea
Nachriteu, whioh reiterates its declaration regarding European neutrality in
the event of hostilities in thcTausvnul,
says: The Boom should have fooght
tbe question on the basis of theBloem-
finiteiii discussion. Tho anti-Boer feeling iu Great Britain wonld pass away
if Great Britain's demands were
granted. Franco withont Russia cannot stir a finger uud Rnssia will not.
Austria-Hungary declared neutrality
in 181)1), and Italy will do nothing.
Firmly convinced that tho Gorman
Government will maintain the strictest neutrality we consider it all the
moro our duty to warn the Transvaal
against a destructive jwlicy.

Seattle Wash. Aug. !��).-David L.
Wilson, who olaims to be an agent of
the British Government and to have
important papers for the home office,
hns arrived here en route to London
from the Transvaal. Mr. Wilson says
he has no doubt that there will be a
war. "I have beeu three yeais iu tbe
Transvaal and know the leaders of the
Boer Government well. Preaident
Kruger does not want war. He is now
an old man and as such has not the
control of the cabinet that he had
once. Tbe cabinet is composed of
young bloods who want independence
and who I may say will never give
up until they have either attained or
been wiped out of existence bv English
forces This is why I say there will
be war."

BARON   GRANT DEAD.
A Man With  an   Interesting   History
Passes Away in London.
Loudon, Ang. UO.���Baron Albert
Grant, tho oompany promoter, is dead.
His title was conferred upon him
by King Humbert in 18ii8 for services
in connection with the Victor Emanuel at Mallan. Grant wns the Hooley
of his day. Grant was best known in
connection with the Emma silver mine
scandal. The capital wns fixed at u
million shires of ��30 sterling. Three
members of Parliament wero 011 the
board of directors and Mr. Robert
Gumming Schenck, the United States
Minister to Great Britain, was also a
director. This was considered a msster-
piece of promotion, Mr. Scheiick's
name producing great confidence. The
orospectus showed that- a dividend of
80 per cent, was possible. The Americans, Park and Stewarf, the vendors
of tbe mine, turned out to be worthless. Only a shilling per share was
saved from the wreck and it afterwards
developed that Park and Stewart paid
Grunt ��100,000 promoting mouey besides other sums. Mr. Schenck is nlso
said to have collected ��10,000 from
Park uni Stewart to take shares and
become a director. A report ou the
mine purporting to come form Prof.
Gillman, of Yale, was pronounced to
be a forgery. Mr. Robert Gumming
Schenck, who was appointed Minister
to Great Britain in 1870. resigned his
position in 187(1 as a result of the failure of tbe Emma silver mine company
in which he had permitted himself to
become Ja director. He died in Wash
ington, March 21), 181)0, where he nad
resumed the practice of law.
Before the notion brought against
Grant, and directors, Park nnd Stewart,
was decided,Gront��failed,and tbo trustees appointed by the court decamped
with the prooeeds of Grant's estate.
During the days of hia prosperity
Grant presented Leicester Square to
London at a cost of ��30,000 and built a
magnificent Italian marble palace at a
oost of ��1,000,000.
Chicago, Aug. 80. ��� A speoial to tho
Tribune from Ottawa, says:
Washington dispatches relating to an
alleged secret understanding between
the United States authorities and
Premier Laurier are regarded here as
having some foundation in fact, though
they may be to some extent conjectural. Any understanding is necessarily unwritten aud private, it is
stated. It is unollicial aud temporary,
aud disposes finally of none of tbe
questions, but simply holds matters iu
statu quo.
The seciet understanding, according
to ministerial circles here, is merely
to hold in check and defer possible
demonstrations provoked by tbe iuten-
tion of the President to cede to Canada
a free port in the Lynn canal in return
for Canada's relinquishing her claims
to the entire headwaters of the inlet,
including Dycu, Skagwuy and Pyramid Harbor.
CAUGHT   WITH   THE  CHICKENS.
Brampton, Ont. Aug. 30.���John
Bntchart, who describee himself as a
commission merchant from Toronto,
was caught by Farmer Fred Brown of
Streetsville, stealing his chickens. Between Brown and neighbors with shot
Runs, Buohart was captured nnd a
wagon load of chickens, including
many which Brown identili3d as his.
Bntchart is waiting trial.

Woodstock, On!., Aug. 80. ���Mrs.
Walter Atkinson, who had been poorly
for some time died very suddenly on
Sundny evening on hearing from a
neigh'jo r of tho serious illness of her
brother. Leonard Kitch. The brother

correspondent of Tho Times, who re-
centily visited Korea, telegraphs that
he has fonnd Rusaiun ascendency completely supplanted by Japanese. He
doeB not believo that the new influence
will be easily displaced. The correspondent says: 'The Japanese in Korea

Russian move by a counter move and
multipy Japanese interest in every direction with enormous rapidity."

the Barushy division of the West Riding of Yorkshire, has had audience

NELSON. 13. C
THE GROWING TIME
Although a simpli .nir.ugli description of a oondition, this wns made to
servo as the ohiet motto at   apolitical
demonstration In Toronto a few even
ings ago. That the condition is not
confined to Canada, however, we have
daily evidence from all sides. Here
is one from Denver. Colorado, taken
from the Mining Reporter, a witness
of sober and reliable character: "The
mosr encouraging feature of the great
advance movement in the metnl industries, is tho prospect of its long
continuance. There are many logical
reasons for this belief. General prosperity will naturally involve largo increases in building nnd all manner of
constructive work, requiring the more
extensive uses of iron, steel and copper; it is peculiarly au era of naval
growth and craft building in all the
maritime nations of the world. This
work will continue for a period of successive years. The current and enormous requisitions for mining machinery for use in the mines that hnve not
until of lute reached the stages of extensive development will be followed
by similar demands as the work progresses on the miiicis of Inter discovery.
Soon it may be expected there will be
inaugurated a long period of bridge construction on the older systems of railway, while tho present wonderful "expansion of industry and commerce
surely opens the way to new Hues of
road. The demand for rolling stock
for adequate equipment of the present
linos is enormous. Under the advancement of ohemioal processes and the
employment ot electrical machinery
and appliances as a dominant force in
the world's industries, the nses of copper aud zinc must continue to in
crease. In addition to these, and other
considerations, American machinery,
so long restricted to its own territory,
is now invited into all the markets
of the industrial world. Only a few
months ago European orders began to
be placed in tho United States, mainlv
because of tbe promptness with which
thev were filled. Now the superior
merit of tho articles manufactured
forms a part of the motive. For such
reasons the foreign trade of the American manufacturer will be permanently

that our present rate of prosperous
activity will continue for years to
come."
This is not quoted here with the object of booming Denver. The Miner is
under no obligation to do thnt, nor do
we suppose that Denver is in nef.d of
such services. It is given here merely
to show that in Colorado a growing
time is so manifest that tbo ���journals
of the State do not hesitate to speak of
it. Hut the strange thing is how it
reaohed as far as that, for if the organs in this country are to be believed
the growing time in Canada is duo directly and solely lo the Government at
Ottawa. Indeed, Sir Richard Cart-
wright claimed as much in his speech
at Toronto the other night. No doubt
fair Wilfrid Laurier will be glad to
know that the influoiioe of his personality ��ii the seasons, and such other
things us combine to make good times
or bad, hns overflowed the boundary
and extended ns far into the neighboring Holds us Denver. But it in not
known if the Denver people understand
how much thoy are indebted to the
Canadian Promier. or, if they do,
whether they are properly grateful.
And as the gro-ving time extends all
ovor the United States, aud Grout
Britain,and Europe generally, the debt
to Sir Wilfrid uud his Govorument is
truly oolossal. We give the credit lo
the Canadian Premier, for iu this
co-iitry he produced the grnwiug time ;
and ns wo do not hear that Mr. Mc-
Kinley in the United States or Lord
Salisbury in Great Britain claims to
havo been the cnuso of it there, we
oan only conclude that it is an overflow from this country.
The present organs have the authority of example for ascribing
the good times to the Government
at Ottawa. One does not require
to bo very old to recall the time
when the Conservatives made a similar
claim. They took credit to themselves
for good props and good prices, just as
the Liberals are doing now. It dis
plays n romarkablo contempt for the
public intelligence to make such a
claim. The change to n Liberal Government at Ottawa bas about as much
to dn with influencing those conditions which have produced a OOmmer
Dial and industrial revival ull over the
world as has tho   Kokanee glacier, yet
the organs and politicians do not scruple to avow it. And, when we think
of it, why should thev'. If an insult
to the intelligence of the people, it is
an insult the people themselves invite,
for in the interest of party it is
thought necessary to profess to believe it.
The Martin champerty oase bus set
the newspaper tongues of the Easl
wagging. According to some of them,
the practice is quite prevalent in Ontario, where it 18 supposed to be ns
much proscribed ns it is in British Co-
umbia. Some excuse was made for
Mr Martin on tho plea thn! it has not
been made an offeuoe in Manitoba,
with whose practice in such things lie-
is most familiar.  In one sense it would
seem to be .i mere matter of professional etiquette, If a practising barrister can bargain for feos after the
manner of a Cheap John I c will no
doubt lower himself and his profession, but that is not .i crime, It was
doubtless to keep up the standard thai
champerty whs made an off.'UCO, and
it is an offence only by teason of the
oath taken on admission to the bar.
The practice may not bo a reputable
one, but there is nothing 111 it to excite
a very great degree of  public interest.
According to the dispatches, the
Transvaal nfl'ait- has assumed a more
alarming aspect than nt anytime since
the Jameson raid. Indeed, they indicate nothing short of war, for ou oue
side, it is said, the Milner demands
will be insisted npou, and on the other
they will not be conceded. It is impossible to believe, however, thnt diplomacy will not yet succeed in effecting a peaceable settlement. The Boer
leaders are not so ignorant as not to
know that resistance would cost them
dearly, und they cannot be so stubborn
as to be indifferent. In tho interests
of Great Britain, however, it is not
sure but war is the best thing that
could happen. There is a Dutch sentiment, Dutch impudence or insolence,
that will cause trouble throughout tho
whole of South Africa as long as it is
suffered to endure. Only war can stamp
it out effectually.

How an Eastern   Firm Disposes of the
Bi Products of Gas.
In \ iew of the establishment of a
gas and coke indnstiy in Nelson the
following from the New York Engineering and Mining Review will make
profitable reading.
Tha New England Gas and Coke
Company, whose great plant at Kb
vero, near Boston, is gradually coming
into use as a pioneer in the snpply of
fuel in the form of gas to a large city
is uotively at work securing customers
for tbe coke which will bo one important part of ils products. As a
beginning it has succeeded in persuading the Boston & Maine Railroad Company to try tho use of coke for its locomotives. That company has ordered
a number of its passenger engines to
be fitted with the proper grates for
this fuel, aud should the experiment
succeed���as there is very little doubt
that it will���the engines in freight
service will follow. Of course there is
no doubt that the coke will answer
tho purpose, the point to be tested being the economic one, as to its cost
iu comparison with tho bituminous
coal now used. For passenger service
the cleanliness of the fuel, the absence
of smoke, cinders, (to , constitute advantages which will outweigh some
difference in cost. We are not informed as to the prices at which coke
from the Kevere plant will be furnished to large consumers like the Boston
& Maine Oompauy, but they will
doubtless he put at a,| moderate level.
In such a plant as that of the New
England Company, the coke will be a
bi-prodnet, and the company can
probably will dispose of it at
prices in order to make a market.

EMANDED   FOR   THREE DAYS.
COMMITTED FOR TRIAL
Win. Sutherland   Will   He Tried  on u
Charge Preferred By A. B. Gray.
Tho case of William .Sutherland, who
was charged with receiving money?
ami not accounting for the same under
Section 1108 of tho Criminal Code,
wmie before Magistrate Crease yesterday. Tbo prosecutor, Mr A. B.Gray,
wus represented by Mr. R. M. Macdonald,   while Mr. S. S. Taylor, Q.C.,
appeared for the licensed.
Mr. Gray stated in his evidence
that he was a commissionjmarobant in
Nelson and that be had employed the
nnonsed to solicit orders for him iu the
Boundary Country. He gave the accused $1)0 for bis expenses. Sutherland,
instead of returning within eight or
niiin days, stayed away some five
weeks. During that period ho receiver! sundry sums of money for Mr. Gray
and it was for failing to account, to his
employer for these that tho present proceedings were   taken.
Mr. Taylor for the defence endeavored to show that Sutherland had utilized these moneys for Mr. Gray's bus-
Hi'rs, but no evidence was brought to
substantiate this contention. Mr.
Taylor further maintained that these
proceedings were not tho proper snb-
jeet for a criminal court, but were of
ilio nature of a civil notion. The criminal code could uot bo used in order to
obtain civil redress.
Mr. Macdonald pointed out that the
fact that Mr. Gray had provided the
accused with ample funds for his expenses met Mr. Taylor's argument
thai the moneys received had been
osi'd in Mr. Gray's business. The
magistrate committed the prisoner for
trial, allowing bail which ho fixed at
WOO and two sureties of #200 each.
The Suspected   Burglar Before Magistrate Crease Yesterday.
The young man who is charged with
.agrancy but who evidently knows a
rent deal about the different burglaries lhat have taken place in tbe
Oity reoently was up before Magistrate Crease yesterday, and remanded
for three days. He admits that he
sold a revolver but where he got it or
w> whom he sold it he will not say.
I'he police have evidence that he attempted to sell one on the night the
window of the Nelson Hardware Company was relieved of fourteen valuable revolvers. The prisoner's refusal
to account for haviug one in his pos-
-essiou aud also to tell where he was
on the night of the robbery indicate
that he was mixed up with tho burglary. He is discreetly sayiug nothing and the police are experiencing
considerable difficulty in getting evidence of a satisfactory nature. However the ohief is working on several
olues that may bring out part of the
truth. As yet noue of the stolen revolvers have been discovered. It is
not considered that another man arrested ou suspicion and held on a
charge of vagrancy knows anything
about the burglars.
At the Waverley Hotel tonight
those interested in minstrels aro r- -
quest, d to meet and perfect the or ���
ganlzation of a minsttel tronp to give
entertainments during rbe winter
months There is any amount of talent
in the City and if it is gather d together a first class troup can be organized.
The police commissioners met yesterday, the chief subject of discussion
being the burglary siuation. Stepa
were taken lo stamp out rhe evil. A
change was made in the police service,
the chief being ordered to go on night
duty with Patrolman Hardy, and Patrolman Smith will be on duty during
the day.
For allowing himself to get iuto|J a
condition of beastly inebriation and
making himself obnoxious on public
thoroughfares nn individual enriched
the civic exchequer yesterday by depositing therein the sum of five dollars
in addition to the amount which the
law in such cases allows to be collected
and designated as costs
Mr. H. W. Hawley arrived in town
from the Molliii Gibson mine yesterday. Mr. Hawley, who bas the contract for Ihe new wagon road, states
that the first three miles from the lake
to tho mine of the wagon road have
beeu completed. He has sub-let contracts for construction of the first five
miles from the mine towards the lake.
The roid will be about 12 miles long
when completed.
Four railway men were interested
in oases heard by Magistrate Crease
yesterday. One applied to have the other
bound over to keep the peace, but the
action was dismissed. In the other
case a bridge caretaker charged a
brnkeman with assault, but tie plaiu-
tiff and defendant appeared and stated
that an amicable settlement had been
reached. Tho case was consequently
dismissed, the defendant paying the
costs.
The C. P. R., announces that it
will grant single fate for the round trio
to those wishing lo attend tbe Godfrey Bund Conceits iu the skating
rink ou Saturday afternoon and evening of next week. The tickets will be
good for , return on Sunday to those
towns that have service on Sunday
and on Monday in other cases. The
afternoon concert will allow outiders
to attend one concert and roluru
home tho same day.
A telegraph operator who recently
arrived in Nelson from tbe East, went
mountain climbing yesterday and
encountered a porcupine. He had
never 6een one before and as the animal
appeared to be quite friendly he patted
it. Last night considerable difficulty
was experienced   in pulling the quills
out of the bands and legs of the operator who  now knows what a porcupine j
is. When he next goes mountain climb- j
ing he will be accompanied by a nurse, j

Ymir, Aug. 80.���(Special)���A big
strike has beeu made on the Big
Horn property. The ledge is now 14
feet in width between walls, rive feet
of this being solid mineral, the balance of the ledge matter being quart*
The management have decided to
commence a tnnnel -nine 200 feet he-
low the present shafts, This morning R K. Nei 11, representing Finch
and Campbell of Spokane, accompanied bv Messrs. HenneBsy Kros , left for
Sixteen Mile Oreek for the Luokj
Strike uud Wisconsin grcup of properties Rumor has it that tbe property
will shortly change bauds.
There is considerable activity in the
mining world of Ymir, a number of
deals recently going through.
* *   *
N A. Wallinger, n mining engineer
of Fort Steele. B. C, is in the city,
says the Spokes.nan-Beview. He bas
lately been spending considerable t'.me
in the Tracy creek mining camp, near
Fort Steele,' and is favorably impressed with the outlook there and with the
opportunist's offered for investment
of capital. As in all the other promising camps of the northwest. Spokane capital is already at work there,
and with favorable results. Mr. Wallinger describes the country as one
where surface showings are excellent,
but permanent development scarce,
nevertheless with prospects of more
than ordinary promise.
"The Estella is tbe banner property
of the camp." said Mr. Wallinger.
"It comprises four claims located on
three distincl ledges, and the group
hns the making of a first-class mine.
Of the three veins the principal one as
ut present shown in an east and west
vein, carrying galena, which at the
bottom of a 70-foot shaft shows 14 feet
of ore and no foot wall iu sight. This
ore consists of solid galena chiefly and
some carbonates. It makes an excellent showing indeed. At right angles
to this ledga run two ledges from two
and a half to four feet in width, carrying high values in gold,silver and copper. Upon one no work has been attempted, but on the other are two
drifts of 80 nnd 100 feet respectively,
showing no diminution iu size of ledge
or value of ore. The nroperty is one
of excellent merit, and can be made
into a shipper with but little development.
"Adjoining the Estella is the Crescent group, which has not been developed at all, bnt which bas tine sarfnce
showings with every indication of an
ore body as all Iho crevices on tne
walls of tho bulges seem to exude
galena and iron oxide, There are three
claims in tho group. "

LAGER BEER.
THE U. S. WON   THE CUP.
Result   of   the    International    Yacht
Races   at Toronto.
The O. P. R. telegraph company did
not seem to be aware that interna,
tional yaoht races took place on To-
routo Bay last week and The Miner
was consequently unable to give the
results. However, as many Nelson people are interested in the result of the
series of races for the Canada's enp,
which took place off Toronto harbor
on August ti, 23 and 24, bjtweou the
Beaver of the Royal Canadian Yacht
Club, and the Genessee of the Chicago
Yaoht Club, The Miner herewith
gives the particulars of tho race:
First Race, August 22, round triangle, 21 miles���Genesee won by one
minute 22 seconds.
Second race, August 2, to windward, iiiuu inilis and returu���Genesee
won by 3!i seconds.
Third race and match, August 24,
around t'iangle, 21 miles���Genesee
won by 11 minutes, 47 seconds.
The first day's nice was in u breeze,
and lhe Heaver was leading, with
very prospect of winning, wheu au accident to her rigigng put hor out of
thu race. The remaining races
were sailed on an unruffled sea, with
hardly a zephvt lo swell the Bails, nnd
as u drifting machine the Yankee
yacht ibowed great superiority. Had
tbere been the sembleiice of a breeze
many profess to believe the Beaver
would have wou.
There is si ill another chance left for
thn Beaver to defeat the year's winner of the Canada's cup. It is tbe R.
O. Y. C.'b intention fo challenge the
Roohester Club for tbe Fisher Cup, to
bo sailed in September, when there
Is more liklihood of strong winds
Rochester yachtsmen say m case of
such a challenge, thoy will name the
Genesee to defend, and all of them
hope for the race.
A MOUNTAIN ACCIDENT.
Zormatt, Switzerland, Aug. 80.���A
serious climbing accident has just been
reported. While two Englishmen
named Hill and Jones wore ascending
the   Dent   Blanche,   tbe ropo  broke,
und Hill and three guides were precipitated down the mounatin. Their bodies have not been found and it is supposed they have perished.
AND STILL THEY TALK.
Paris, Aug. 30.���At the Ression today of the Anglo-Venezuelan boundary commission, Sir   Robert   R. Reid,
(Continued From First Page.)
De Boisdeffre nnd Gonso in poisoning
Picquart's reputation with Billot , the
minister of war, and the auti-semite
press was used in propagating a false
rumor to the effect that the friends of
Drefyus were arranging for his escape.
In September, !!���>!)(>, there appeared
au article iu the Eclair slating thut
Dreyfus had really tren c.riivir ted, uut
on the bordereau, but on other documents, secretly communicated to the
court martial. These documents are
those iuiduded in what is known as ilit;
"secret dossier." One of these doan-
inents was said to refer to Drefyns iu
name whereas,   actually, all that   was
said   was "ce canaille de D . "   uo
name being given. Following thii
came a publication of a fnc simile of
the bordereau in tbe Matin.
Madame Dreyfns and the few friends
of Dreyfus weie now thoroughly aroused and soon many began to join their
banner. The plot of the conspirators
thicksned and forgery and lying wero
now resorted to.
in order to follow up the chain of
evidence which has led to ^tlie present
trial it will be necessary, owing "to
want of space, to continue this narrative in tomorrow's addition of The
Miner.
