ORANGE FREE STATE
STILL IN SESSION
Mr- Chamberlain Secretive,
Keeps His Own Counsel.
PEACEFUL SETTLEMENT
President Kroger Says Sitnation Will Be
come Graver but Peaoe Will
be Attained.
12:80 p.m.   Laige  crowds  assembled \f\t ]t~\ P1IMCD A I CV II|D If HP
about Downing street early in the day. | V/ U ly.        I   11lN C I\J\ L CA Ii 1 t> 11 1
Cabinet Ministers were loudly cheered,
Chamberlain reoeiving the lion's share
of the applause. Previous to the raeet-
; ing of the Cabinet, Baron Rothschilds
visited First Lord of tbe Treasury Bal-
lour. This circumstance is unusual,
and it is said to be in connection with
money difficulties the Government is
encountering regarding the prospect of
the military campaign. When tbe
Cabinet went into session no new developments in the Transvaal sitnation
transpired. Dispatches from the Oape
ooutinued of warlike tone and voioed
the indignation of the British contingent against tbe Orange Free State.
The impression ourrent here, though
not based on anything tangible, was
that publicly, the Cabinet would only
take steps tending to protract the negotiations, while secretly, it would prepare details of aggressive campaign,
perhaps deciding to convoke Parliament, though it was scarcely believed the latter determination would be
announced immediately.
New York,  Sept. 22.���A despatch to
Tlie Tribune from London says:
The correspondence between Sir Alfred Milner and President Steyn
strengthens tho ourrent belief hern that
tomorrow's Cabinet Connoil will decide to send out 10,000 to 20,000 additional troops to South Africa, and leave
all questions of diplomacy open until
their arrival Meanwhile the Orange
Free State leaders and the Afrikanders
will bestir themselves to keep peace
between England and tbe Transvaal,
mid will have the best wishes of the
English Conservatives, like Sir Edward
Clarke, who are hoping war may be
averted. Leading financiers in the city
are convinced that war is inevitable,
since neither President Kruger nor
Mr. Chamberlain can retreat with
honor, and there is no other way out
of it. That is the commonenst expression heard in Lombard street, that
each side has gone too far to turn back
and hence there is nothing to do but
tight it out. An experienced banker
remarked that the Government here is
waiting in order to put all the rein-
foi cements ashore, and tbe Boers are
holding baok for rain, which will give
water aud grass on the Veldt for their
cavalry, and that in the conrse of six
weeks there will te a quick three
weeks' campaign. Mr. Chamberlain
will provide a draft of an alternative
policy when the Cabinet meets,and bis
friuuds assert that it will turn on the
pivot of the paramount authority of
the British Government in South
Africa. Rumors that tbe Transvaal
Government will be asked to disarm
and abandon its lines of fortification in
Pretoria an I Job'innesburg are premature, bnt not nnfoni'ded Mr. Cle'.m-
hcrlain '..eps bis I ��������� ���������mm --i

Capetown, Kept.23.���.It i- <;i,,( rt oocl
hen thai tlie secret session of tin Read
of ilie Orange Free State will continue
until the beginning of  ucxl week.
Writing to an intimate friend here,
President Kruger says.
"Things are serious and will become
graver, hut a peaceful settlement w ill
be attained."
Pretoria, Sept. 22.���The Executive
Council sat until 5 o'clock yesterday
evening. A telegram containing President Stoyn's reply to the British
High Commissioner in South Africa
was londy cheered. A large order for
horses has been given in Orange Free
State. The field correspondent says
that in the event of mobilizing, 4,000
wen will be available in Pretorin
alone. It is reported that the experiment of Zeurfonte with a locally manufactured dynamite gun resulted in
the gun bursting, tnough no one was
injured
Berlin, Sept. 32.���Tbe German Peace
society, at its meeting in this city tomorrow, will adopt resolutions protesting against war between Great Biit-
��iu and the Transvaal.
Pretoria, Sept. 22.���President Kroger has been in telegraphic communication with President Steyn this afternoon regarding the situation, and the
deoision of the Raad of tho Orange
Free State is awaited with interest.
Large numbers of local Germans,
Fiernohmen, Hollanders, and Ameri-
okub have offered their servioes to
Commandant General Jonbert. In the
event of hostilities, the elder Burghers
still fail to Bee the grounds of a casus
I'elli, but if Mr. Chamberlain makes
what they would characterize as humiliating demands, such as, for in-
"tonoe, disarmament, war would be
inevitable.
Pretoria, Sept. 22.���A green book has
been issued containing the report of
State Attorney Smnts to the Government on the ponr parlers between
himself and the British diplomatic
agent, Mr. Cnnyngham Greene, leading to the conditional five years' franchise proposed. Mr. Smuts asserts that
the proposal was the result of a private discussion and an arrangement
that both Governments should informally decide about the offer and its acceptance before the offer should be
foimally submitted. He also contends
that the exact draft of the offer was
wired to the British High Commissioner, Sir Alfred Miluer, and that the
Imperial Government sent a despatch
to Mr. Green which ho interpreted as
an acceptance of the offer. Mr. Smuts
said that had the Transvaal known
that any difficulty was to be made
about sn/.ertainty, his Government
would never have made the proposals,
but would immediately have aooepted
tbe invitation to a joint commission of
inquiry regarding the proposal. He
also denies that he promised Mr.
Green that tbe new members of tbe
Raad would be allowed to speak English. All be said on tbis subject, he
decidos. was that tbe matter would
easily settle itself, and shows in the
telegram to Sir Alfred Milner, no mention was made of tbis subject. The
Goveinmont denies that State Attorney
Smuts has informed Mr. Green that
further mobilization will be regarded
OS an unfriendly net. Mr. F. W Reitz,
tbe State Secretary, says that when
martial law is proclaimed it will apply to the whole country. Mr. Reitz
has replied to an npnlioation mate bv

tegarding the Transvaal, and the same
applies, so far as I know, to Germany.
I hope there will bo no war, but things

NEARLY AN ACCIDENT.
Shamrock  Saved From a Seious  Accident by the Good Judgment
of the Oaptain,
St. Paul, Minn., Sept. 22.���Judge
Amidon, in the United States Circuit
Court, decided today that stockholders
of British corporations shall iu such
relation be governed by the oorporate
laws of Great Britain. The oases under consideration were of the London
& Northwest American Mortgage Company, Ltd., against Peter J. Giese,
and William P. Jewett, respectively.
The defendants were owners of stock
in the plaintiff's ooncern, whoso main
office is in London, Eng. The corporation subsequently became insolvent.
When called upon to make good tbo
amount ot their stock, the defendants
claimed that they wero not members
of the defendant's corporations, having
assigned their stocks. Tho corporation
claimed to bave no legal knowledge of
tbe assignment, and that if assignment
bad been attempted, the same was not
in accordance with the laws of Great
Britain and the provisions of the corporate by-laws. The defendants claimed to have given notice of tbe assignment according to tho laws of tho
United States.
The court holds that t"bis being a
British corporation, the assignment
should havo followod English custom
and law. A decision for the company
was therefore given. Both cases will
be appealed.
New York, Sept. 22.���Good judgment on the part of tbe captain iu
charge of tbe yacht Shamiock today
saved her from what might have boeu
a most serious accident. After soiling
a good strong breeze over about five
miles of the course off the New Jersey
course her crew found that the bob stay
was stretching and in danger of carrying away, so Designer Fife ordered the
���nil taken off her and ��bewas towed to

TWO MEMORIALS ANSWERED
Steamboats to Be Inspected at Kaslo���
Bush i'ire.H Will Be Looked After
The Kaslo Eoard of Trade has received tbe following answer to their
communications regarding the forest
fires and the inspection of steamboats
at the Port of Kaslo:
Ottawa, 1st September, 1899.
Gentlemen���Referring to your letter
of the 17th instant, addressed to the
Minister of Marine and Fisheries, relative to steamboat inspection on Kootenay Lake, I have to inform you that
Mr. J. A. Thompson, steamboat, inspector, will be instructed to inspoct
steamers at Kaslo and Duncan City, as
well as at Nelson, in compliance with
vour request, I um, geiiteman, your
obedient s.rvnnt, F. GOURDEAU,
Deputy Minister of Marine and Fisheries.
Victoria, Aug. 30th, 1H99.
O.    A.   Sutherland,    Esq,,    Secretary
Board   of   Trade and   others, Kaslo,
B. O.
Gentlemen���I have the honor to
acknowledge the receipt of your memorial culling nttentiomi to tbo subject of
the destruction of timber by bush fires
which is going on from year to year in
Kootenay.
The Government fully recognizes the
damage sustained by tho country yearly in the destruction of valuuble timber by fire, and the subject has been a
matter of discussion in tbe Legislature.
Provision bus been made, as you are
aware, under the "Bush Fire Act, 1806''
for the prevention, as far as possible, of
suih fires.
The great difficulty is in getting
Demons who may be cognizant of instances of violations of the act to pros-
coute, althongh the Act provides that
one-half of the fine imposed shall be
paid to the prosecutor.
Your suggestions with respect to the
appointment of btsh-rangers will be
taken into oonsideratioun.
I have tbe honor to be, gentleman,
your obedieut servant,
F. OAKTER-OOTTON,
Chief Commissioner of L. and W.

BEMAHKABLE   OBTUSENESS.
When Mr. C. H. Mackintosh gives
out an interview in tho future he
should Consider the sensibilities of
Tbe News-Advertiser, tbe paper owned
and controlled by Mr. Cotton. The
gentleman has just made a journey
Eastward, and was interviewed on the
way. He is reported as saying that
capitalists with whom he was in
touch wore so much alarmed by the
tendencies of the times in British Columbia that they prefer to look for investments further south,in Oregon and
California, for instance. The News-
Advertiser is quite overcome by tbis
intelligence. "We cannot think," it
says, "that many British investors
will be foolish enough to prefer mining investments in tho States to like
opportuniteB in British Columbia."
It is a pity its powers of thinking
are so limited. Any one else can think
what it says is so impossible to it. We
bave no doubt that even Mr. Cotton,
as he lays down his scheming for a
moment's rest now and then, can
work up imagination encugh to 6ee
with his mind's eye capitalist after
capitalist turn off the trail that leads
to tbis Province, and head for the
south. There is the less difficulty in
imagining this by reason of the fact
that it is true. If The News-Advertiser is unequal to the task of thinking
it, some serious disarrangement of its
organism must have occurred. We
should not be surprised if it were a
case of diseased liver. Healthy persons, healthy in body and mind, have
seen tbe thing that to our contempora
ry is too impalpable to present itself
even as a vision.
It would be very curious if it had
not. Our Government and Legislature
have created alarm where before there
was confidence. Conditions affecting
the mining industry have been thrown
into a state of violent agitation. We
legislate to keep aliens from our placer
mines, and members of the Govern
ment,boasting of what they bave done
throw out dark hints of something
more sweeping still. No one can tell
that a similar measure will not be enacted in respect to our quartz mines.
Without tbis, however, quartz mining
has been seriously embarrasssed by an
Act which has brought contention between the mine owners and the mine
workers. Tbe whole business has been
disarranged, with the result that development is practically suspended. Tbis
is not a coudition to attract capital;
on the contrary, it is a condition to
discourage it. Wo nil know that it
doeH discourage it. Thore is not a per
son in the Province associated with
the operation of our mines who has
not actual knowledge of instances of
investors being driven away to other
fields. However much we may regret
this, we cannot be so unreasonable as
to say it is foolish,as the foolish News
Advertiser does. Capitalists are not
Beeking investments in British Columbia so long us the mining industry is
in its present confuse! coudition. And
for the confusion it is indebted to tbe
Government of which Mr. Cotton is
the most influential member. Perhaps
that will account for the mental in
aliilny of Mr. Cotton's newspaper.
There is a strike at the Wellington
shops of the E, & N. Railway. 01
the ins and out* of the dispute between
the men and the Company we do not
get a very clear conception from an
u'count published in Tho Nanaiino
Herald; but in iis editorial column 11
makes tbis statement: "Tbe thing
which most calls for attention is the
fuet that the Company aro cutting
wages and extending tho hours of
lnbor. " We are not told why they are
doing this. It may lie there is a reason
which appeals strongly to their judgment aud sense of right, lie that as it
may, they are cutting wages and extending the hours, and The Herald
thinks tbis is very wrong. Perhaps it
is, but the Nanaiino paper should re
member, even in the height of its indignation, that with the assistance of
tho Government the Miners' Uoions
are cutting the hours of labor and increasing wages. Wherein is one worse
than the other? If the Unions have a
right to cut down tho day from ten
hours to eight and to demand the ten
hours' pay, why should not the Company have a right, to reverse the process? The Herald supports the Government and tho Unions, but condemns
tho Company. Does it bold that the
right is only on the side of lnbor, and
that employers are not entitled to any
consideration at all? If this doctrine
is to prevail, the industrial world will
soon find itself in a turmoil of confusion that can end only in ruin to all
conoerned.
Wo are extremely sorry to Bee that
the company it, keeps, is corrupting
The Columbian. We regrot this the
more because of a profound conviction
that its natural instinctH are good. It
would be honest if only lot alone. If
it were off by itself in the woods, mid
away from contaminating contact with
members of  the Government  and   the
politicians who suppoit thorn, it would
do and say the right thing according
to its own cunscitnoe. But it is rapidly getting corrupted by its associations with political evil, aud we shudder to think what its end will be. The
other day The Miner was counting
noses. It took Mr. Martin and Mr.
Higgius from the Ministerial side and
put them over witb ibe Opposition; it
out what Mr. Maopberson said against
what Mr. Helgenson said,and concluded that if they were honest one of tbeiu
muFt vote non-coofidence in the 3ov-
ernineiit; aud then counting up it
found that tbe Ministerialists, with
tbe Speaker in tbe chair, numbered
eighteen. The leekless Columbian declares that we were claiming both Mr.
Maopberson and Mr. Helgeuson'. We
claimed neithir. We simply took them
at their word ; on their own valuation,
as it were. One of them said he would
vote against tbe Government if it did
hbcIi a thing ; the other said he would
vote against it if it did not do that
same thing. Perhaps both were talking to deceive ; we do not know, and
\ery likely Tbe Columbian does. And
it is association with such men that is
destroying its innocence and reducing
its character to the level of that of an
ordinary Ministerialist.
The Kootenaian is a little puzzled
over Mr. Cotton, who visited Kaslo
tbe other day and invited the business
men of the town to interview him. Of
tho Eight-Hour Law he has nothing to
say beyond the stereotyped phrase, "it
is here to btay. " Says Tbe Kootenaian: "As Minister of Finance it was
thought he would feel it incumbent
upon himself to find out what amount
of revenue the Government was losing
by these rich mines being closed, but
he did not manifest much concern
about tbe finances." Why should he?
It was not as Minister of Finance he
made the tour of Kootenay, but as
Minister of Humbug, determined, if
possible, to beat Mr. Joseph Martin
and Mr. Molnnes at their own game
and hold the labor vote for the Government. The finances of tho Province
may suffer Dy reason of the industrial
disturbance, but Mr. Cotton's anxiety
for the public welfare is a very .small
quantity when compared with bis de
sire to hold on to office.
Bah, indeed! It is an emission of
disgust from The Victoria Globe:
"The Government is composed of a set
of incapables. With the exception of
Mr. Cotton there is not a man in the
Cabinet who knows anything about
governmental matters. Minister of
Mines Hume is in a fog continually.
He has not the remotest conception of
what his duties consist of. He knows
ha is a member of the Government
only because official papers are put before bim to sign, and he draws his
salary regularly. Attorney-General
Henderson is so intoxicated witb the
unexpected stroke of good fortune
which made him member of tbo Cabinet that be has time for nothiug else
but gating at himself in a mirror in
fond admiration. Premier Semlin is
concerning himself about the success of
his crops on his farm at Ashcroft Dr.
McKeohnic's��� let's see���Oh, yes���Dr.
MoKecbiiie, of Nanaimo. is President
of the Council. Of Mr. Cotton wo hau
spoken. Now in tho n.ime of common
sense what else can be expected from
such a clique of incompetents lint
blunder after blunder? And yi I they
aud their little crowd of mpporters
talk about this countrj receiving pood
government under their administration I   Bah I"

ITATAUCCIDENT
MB. BENNET, A MISSIONARY KILLED
NEAR AINSWORTH.
While Out Shooting His Gun Accidentally
Discharge! and Mangled Him
Terribly.
Word was receive.1 in the Oity yesterday of the lamentable death of Mr.
Bennett, the young Presbyterian missionary who has beon stationed fur the
summer at Ainsworth. On Thursday
lie was out shooting eight miles from
Ainsworth, and was leaning his loft'
nun on the muzle of the gun, when it
was discharged, the bullets fearfully
lacerating his arm and doing considerable harm to his side, besides severely
shocking his whole system. Some
miners were attracted by his cries and
came to his relief. Mr. Bennett was
placed on an improvised stretcher and
curried two miles through rough country v.'here there was no trail mid six
miles over a trail to Ainsworth. As
might be expected, he experienced terrible agony en this melancholy trip
down the mountain side. Ho was
taken at nuco to the hospital at Kaslo,
where everything possible was done for
him. But the loss of blood had b��eu
too great and his strong constitution
succumbed to the terrible strain at 4 -.20
m .!,.,. ,\   wbon be missed a��ay.
Deceased hailed from Gfiglanfl, and
studied for the ministry at Knox college, Toronto He was stationoil at
Ainsworth for six months, and was to
have returned East at the end of the
present month.
The funeral will take place at Kaslo
today, the services being conducted by
Rev, Mr. Menzie's of Kaslo. The relations of the deceased, who reside in
England, have beeu communicated
witb.       	
F. J. Bradley & Co. are now making
a specialty of signs and ornamental
painting. 	
DUNCAN   RIVER COUNTRY.
Naturally Tributary to  Nelson���Trade
Should Be Secured.
Mr. W. R. Stevenson, civil engineer
for the OP. R., who is now engaged
on construction on the road between
Lardo and Trout Lake, is at the Phair.
He reports tbe grading as nearly finished betweon Lardo and Duncan Oity,
and track laying is soon to commence,
Mr. Stevenson thinks that trains will
be running to Dmioan Oity by the first
of November,and that work on the line
will continue throughout the winter.
Prom Trout Lake the road will run
fluent to Arrowhead, connecting with
the main lino of the 0. P. K. "The
existence of Immense bodies of ore,"
siid Mr. Stevenson, "in the Dniican-
Liirilo country has had an effect rarely
ever witnessed before iu any country,
viz: Two railroad companies are building roads into a country before they
have anythiug to haul. But they are
perfectly safe. These roads will open
a country unsurpassed in mineral and
agricultural wealth, Outside of the
mines in that section the agricultural
land is of great importance Thore
me thousands of acres of Al laud on
the Duncan anrt Lardo Rivers and at
each end of Trout Lake. This land
consists of river bottoms, and part, of
it is onvered with a heavy growth of
hay and part with timber, but it is all
good. If a man should acquire a small
tract of land there now.before he could
raise a crop on it, the best kind of a
market would be impatiently awaiting
it. Everything that one could raise
there would command a high price
right at home "
Mr. Stevenson said further, in answer
to a question by The Miner representative: "That whole country is tributary to Nelson, and Nelson should
easily lie able to sccine its trade
There will bo a urge trade up there
next year, and it will rapidly increase
every season. "
Mr. Stevenson will return to his
work today by Steamer Kokanee.

THE  PASSING THRONG.
Tho   Largo     Amount    of    Passenger
Traffic to and  From Nelson.
The pagCH of an hotel register can
always be taken M a criterion of Ibe
importance of a town This year the
passenger truffle to and from Nelson
bus been much greater than it ever
was before. The opening of the Crow's
Nest Lino has brought through Nelson
hundreds of people, who, without that
route to and from the East,would have
never have visited the Kootenays. Yesterday a Miner man examined the registers of the Phair and Hume to get an
indication of the increase in travel in
the last year. The names were counted for the first 2a days ih September
last year and this. Tip to the a2nd
last year the Phair had just 1100 arriv-
ah,and np to last night this year there
were 4S5 names on the register for September, The corresponding figures for
the Hume were 1110 and 4(iii. The total
last year was therefore 810, against !I50
this year, or an inoroase of over 51) per
cent., which is a very ureditable showing. Nine hundred and fifty arrivals
for tho two hotels for 22 days speaks a
great deal for the importance or Nelson.

The Ladies' Aid of St. Paul's church
held the opening meeting of the season
this week. There was a good attendance and the meeting partook of a
social nature, tea being served. A
large amount of sewing was given out
in preparation for the sale of work that
will take place in November.
There are various by-laws that provide for keeping the streets clean, and
as soon as the building operations on
Baker street are over and the debris
cleared away these laws will be enforced. Sweeping paper aud other
rubbish in the street is an offence that
the Chief of Police will give attention to.
Two foriorn locking people paddled
up to a bonthouse yesterday, paddled
up with their hands. They had been
out boating and one of them wanted
to show how Btrong ne was. He showed, and broke the oars. They came
back with a story about a sea serpent
breaking the oars, but there are no
such amphibious reptiles in Luke Kootenay.
The residents of tbo upper end ot
Silica street would be greatly pleased
if the Oity would drain the water out
of the mains once in a while and
thereby keep fresh water for the consumers up there. The nriin has a
"dead" end above Cedar street, and as
the consumers are few and tbe main
large, the water lies in the pipes too
long for its own good.
Ohief of Police Jarvis has returned

A oarload ol pipe ui rived yesterday
for tbe Athabasca mine. The pipe is
to be used to carry air from the new
lu drill compressor which the Athabasca company is putting in. Only 5-
diills will be installed for operation,
but the machinery will be there so
that when it is needed it cnu soon bo
made ready for active work. With the I
pipe on the ground it will be but a !
short time before the compressor will
be working. Two machines will be
operated as a commencement, and the
others will be pat on as needed.

ANNABLE'S   COLUMN.
FOREMEN WANTED
RUM GUZZLER AGAIN.
Editor of The Miner :
I have read the letter signed "Teamster" in today's Mirier, with interest.
Your correspondent is certainly inclined in the right direction in desiring a
law prohibiting more than eight boors'
work per day in all occupations. I
have given the matter ronsiderable
thought while sitting in the warm
sunshine on the City wharf, during
the summer, and by the comfortable
barroom stove in winter; and my opinion is that the legislature should go
further, and make it a criminal offence
to work at all. It is that cl ss who
desire unbridled licence to work as
long as they please, who get rich; and
so by degrees create tho clnss distinction which is at the root of the whole
social trouble. I see no necessity for
work; I don't indulge in it myself
(except on those occasions wheu the
Beak has prescribed "three months
hard'' for the good of my health), and
if the law making it a crime to work
in a mine more than eight hours were
only extended so as to make work cf
any Bort a punishable offence, I should
no longer be vexed by the contemplation of the prosperity of tho wicked
workers I assure you, Mr. Editor,
there have been times when my emotional and spirituous nature has been
so wrong by the thought of the nn-
equal distribution of this world'B
goods, that I have wept.
BUM GUZZLER.

THE ALASKAN BOUNDARY.
Washington, Sept. 22.���Jchn W.
Poster has returned to Washington
from bis summer home, and has begun
to take np tbe threads of his work in
ooneotion with the arrangements of a
modus Vivendi relating to the Alaskan
bonndnry. Thero has been no change
in the status of this question recently.
At last accounts the British Government had before it Secretary Hay's
last proposition, and as it had received
the approval of Mr. Tower, tbe British
Charge d'Affaires here, it was assumed
that it would prove acceptable to tbe
Foreign Office. The proposition, however, was referred to the Canadian authorities to ascertain whether or not
they were able to discover any reason
able objection to it, aud, so faT as is
known, the two principals are still
waiting to let.rn tho disposition of the
Canadians.
