Says Dreyfus, and not  Esterhazy,   Was
the Author of the
Paris, Jnn. 18���The Soir today publishes another interview with General
Mercier, who was Minister of War et
life condemnation of Dreyfus. Gen
end Mercier reiterates his former
statements and reasserts that the
bordereau was certainly the work of
Dreyfus and not of Esterhazy, who
was uot aware of its existence until
long subsequent to the trial. Under
the plea of professional secrecy, he
declined to explain how the war office
obtained the bordeieau, The secret
dossier, he said, consisted of war min-
istiy documents fully proving Ihe interferences deduced from tbe bind-
eieau. The suggestion that it contained letters from n foreign sovereign lie
characterized as "a pure invention," us
was also, be declared, the slatemei t
that M. Cnsiniir Perler resigned the
Presidency of the Republic on account
of the Dreyfus affair. Regarding th
motives that prompted Dreyfus to
commit the treason imputed, General
Merciet said: "Dreyfus was too fond of
lhe society ol women of a certain clnes.
Hml iu not heen for his reputation in
this respect he would have left lhe
militia college among the first three of
his class, but, owing tn his known im

that his treason was probably an net of

For the junior   championship   Sandon
London, Jau. In. The Right Honorable Joseph Chamberlain, Secretary
of State for the Colonies, speaking
this evening al. the banquet of the
Wolverhampton Chamber of Commerce, renewed, ul great length, the
various threatening foreign questions
confronting the Government. In connection with the withdrawl of the
French demand for an extension of
the settlement at Shungliia.Mr. Chamberlain congratulated his hearers that
Great Brltlan's opposition to the
French proposal bail heen strenuously
supported by the representative of the
United States.
"That, I think.'' he said "a significant and noteworthy fact. Nay, 1
think and hope it will become history
It shows that circumstances are bring
ing about the coiiiiiuinit.y of inteiests
between Anglo Saxons, which in the
future may have farreaulltng and hene-
ficieut results."
He welcomed the changing tone on
the pari of France, declaring that if
tbe French government desiied an
amicable settlement of all remaining
difficulties, Great Britain would meet
France more than half way.
Dwelling elaboratoy upon the Newfoundland difficulty, ihe minister said;
"In spiie ��� f clung' s to ihe contrary,
nobody here has the slightest desire to
evade tl e obligations of the treaty of
Ctr chti Im, we desiie lhat lhe rights
conferred upon France hy that treaty
should not be extended aud abused to
the i jury of our pocket. If, when
these rights arc properly defined, they
are found topossesa value for France,
we shnl hi* perfectly willing to observe them, or if Fiance is willing to
arrange for their extinction on fair
and reasonable terms of coiiipensa-
ti n."
Mr. Chamberlain described in detail
how the French had continually been
eccroi.chicg and striving to extend
their claims on the French shore while
at the same lime thi ir interest iu the
fishery had been continually decreasing.
"In fact," he said "bv means of alleged rights, under antiquated treaties,
they ba\e strangled our colony of
Newfoundland and have done so without a penny of advantage to themselves.
If they arc sincerely desirous of amity
with England it will he an easy matter for ihem to ubaiuluu those auti-
quated rights for u sat'sfuotory compensation.
In concluding, Mr. Chamberlain
paid a high tribute to the success of
Lord Salisbury's foreign policy, remarking: "It is ciiuse for satisfaction
that two great nations, Germany and
the United Stales, both protectionists j
ut home, have proclaimed their iu
tent ion to adhere to thn principle of
"Open Door" in their foreign possession.
"We shall regard their expansion
without jealousy and shall welcome

upon their sympathy aud assistance in

Father Litigation iu Electric Light

The opinions of The Toronto
Globe on public questions generally I
are sometimes valuable and sometimes interesting, but what it has to
say of Senate reform or Senate abolition is neither valuable nor interesting enough to warrant the expense of telegraphing it across the
continent. This is a little fact that
Press Agencies for the gathering
nnd distributing ol news would do
well constantly to keep in mind.
The Associated Press would appear
to have a correspondent in Toronto
who attaches a great deal more importance to the utterances of that
paper than do the great majority of
newspaper publishers throughout
Canada who use their service and
are compelled to pay telegraph rates
on the transmission of them. Yesterday morning there appeared
among The Miner's dispatches a
quarter column or so of very sad
stuff, taken from that paper and
wired broadcast, as if it were of the
deepest possible interest to readers
all over the Dominion. The Associated Press should lake an early
occasion to check t'tne i mbecile propensity on the part of its Toronto
The Globe says that ninety per
cent, of the Liberal papers in Ontario favor abolition of the Senate,and
that argument on the question is so
onesided that Sir John Bourninot's
interposition is to be welcomed.
This is not in the highest degree
complimentary to the Liberal Premier, Sir Wilfrid Laurier, who, in a
recent speech, opposed abolition and
gave good reasons for doing so.
That is a matter, however, which he
and The Globe may settle between
them. If the argument should appear to be onesided, an explanation
of it which may not have occurred
to our contemporary is that the ma
jority of Canadian newspapers know
very well that the Senate will not be
abolished, and therefore there is no
great necessity for showing why it
should not be. Rut it is desirable
nevertheless that anything like an
agitation of the question should be
We have no doubt the Toronto
paper is quite wrong in the statement that ninety per cent, of Ontario Liberal journals favor abolition.
It is doubtful if ten per cent, favor
such a policy; but the full ninety
may profess to do so just now, and
the reason is not far to seek. They
join in the present hue and cry
against the Senate in the hope and
expectation of intimidating it. It is
popularly supposed lhat there will be
a Redistribution Rill next session,
and as it is expected to partake of
the character of a gerrymander there
is a fear that the Scnalc may reject
il. If lhat body could be frightened
into the belief that it is to be abolished or reformed, it might consent
to let the gerrymander go through,
hence all this shouting and beating
of tom-toms. To be consistent, the
Senate could not object to a gerrymander in itself, lor before today it
has passed through gerrymanders
quite as infamous as any the Liberals can devise. Thai was for its
political friends, however, and the
country accepted them quite complacently. It might not be disposed
to do as much for the other side; indeed, there is a profound conviction
that it will not, but the opposition
will not be so much to the   redistri-
til after the expiration of  the   pre-;
sent Parliament.     This is a const!- j
tutional question which The   Miner
does not pretend to be able   to   settle, although it does not understand
why the House   of   Commons may
not at any time rearrange   its   own
constituencies.      Re that as it may,
however, tbe pretext   will   be   that
the measure is   unconstitutional, a
question which Parliament itself will
have to thresh   out.      The   Senate
will reject it.    Its motives   may   be
partisan, but the country is not going to demand its abolition   merely
because it stands in the   way   of   a
Liberal gerrymander.    There is one
only and true way to reform the Senate, and that is by and through   the
Canadian people   reforming   themselves, and showing by   their   conduct that they do   not   approve   of
political tricks   and   rascalities   on
either side.      As long as the political immorality of the day continues,
we may expect partisanship  in   the
Senate,    for   party   scheming there
w ill be   necessary    to   meet   party
scheming     in     the   other  House,
When   our people   elect   men who
will consider all public questions on
their merits alone, we shall have   a
Senate so   exemplary   as   to   give
pleasure even to The Toronto Globe.
To this end let it begin  by   reform-
ingf itself.

The strongest plea in support o
the Attorney-General's Bill to seat
Mr. Deane and Mr. Prentice was
that their constituencies should be
given the justice of continuous representation. Before the Bill was
passed or even introduced, tbe Government had knowledge of the death
of a member, Mr. Neilson, but so
far no steps have been taken to give
to his constituency tbe nearest possible approach to continuous representation. Is the inconsistency to
be explained by the fact that the two
members seated by Act are Government supporters, while in the other
case the constituency is expected to
continue Opposition?

A correspondent of a Coast paper
suggests that in the reports of the
proceedings of the Legislature the
names of members should be followed with that of their constituencies, and also wilh something to indicate their political complexion. So
few of the members were ever beard
of before that be finds in impossible
to gather from tbe reports who and
what they are. We are not sure
that it matters greatly, for after the
present Legislature expires very few
of them will ever be beard of again.
We are under obligation to The
Winnipeg Free Press for recalling
the fact that the constituency of
Macdonald in Manitoba returned a
Conservative al the general election,
and becoming vacant a few months
afterwards elected a Liberal. In re
turn for their kindness we arc happy
to relieve The Free Press of the necessity of revising its figures, and
will take into serious consideration

Kvihl mni Grant;
"Tlnii ii is ol tbe greatest importance lo the mineral interests of British
Columbia  that a'mineral exhibit be

Strong Resolution.
Government Urged   to  Mako  a Mineral
Exhibit at Paris iu
The South Kootenay Hoard of Trade
ut a mooting lust, evening put itself on
record ns being opposed to any legislation having for its objeot theexolnsion
of aliens from enjoying quartz mining
rights in British Columbia ; also that
die Government of the Provinoe should
spend �� sum of money in properly
advertising tho mineral wonlth of
British Columbia at the Paris Exposition in 1900 and that the Kootenay
Hoards of Trade should make an ox-
hihit of oro at the exposition independently of what the Government
may do.
There wero present, President J.
Boderiok Kohertson, Messrs. W. H.
Grant, J. M. Lay, Aid. Chas. Hillyer,
A. E. Hodgins, Dr. Arthur, Aid. J,
Kirkpntrick, M. DesBrisay, P. W.
Peters, A. G. Gamble, G. V. Holt.
S. S. Fowler, J. Hirsh, F. W. Swan
uell, Geo. Kydd, E. A. Orease, W. A.
Macdonald and A. H. Kelly.
President Robertson explained that
the meeting had been called an account,
of tho general interest taken in the
bills before the Provincial Legislature
and the possible effect of the passing
of the bills making it unlawful
for aliens to hold mining property in
the Province. Nelson was particularly
interested in leaving quartz mining
open to all comers. The president
thought that alien exclusion legislation would do a great deal of harm in
this district, by shutting out enterprising strangers who have done much
lo open the country.
Mr. Holt pointed out that American
money hud almost entirely opened the
country and nil we had was due to
them. The Englishman generally
waited until a property was opened up
before he invested his money in it.
while the Americans took chances and
went ahead in opening up the country.
Mr. Peters thought that it would be
out of place for tlm Board to take up a
question like the ilaoer mining whieh
did not at all concern this part of the
Province. He did not see that the
Board should tl ke action regarding
quart/, mining as 110 intimation had
heon given that such legislation was
contemplated. Ho did not think the
Government would bring forward such
an amendment. In order to bring the
matter to a head he moved,
seconded by Mr. Holt:
"That, wheras an act has been in
troduoed, and is now receiving the
consideration of tlie Houso, having as
its object tho exclusion of aliens from
the rights of holding or operating
placer mining claims, and,
"Whereas it is tho opinion of this
Board that any such legislation as
applied to lode or quartz mining
claims in British Columbia would bo
detrimental to the eest interests nf
the Kootenay district, it is therefore
resolved that this Board desires to put
itself on record as opposed to any such
legislation as effuoting quartz mineral
claims and that a copy of this resolution bo forwarded to tho Honorable
Minister of Minos and the Premier of
tho Province,"
There was no further discussion and
thu resolution carried without a dissenting vote.
J Tho Vaneouvor Board of Trade asked
the endorsatiou of the Board of a reso-
Ution adopted by the Vancouver body
urging the Government to appropriate
a sum of money not exceeding $60,000
to advertise tho Province's mineral
richness at tho Paris Exposition in
Mr. Holt moved, and Mr. Fowler
seconded, a motion heartily endorsing
the resolution of the Vancouver Board.
Mr. Fowler made u few remarks in
supporting the motion and pointed out
that too much value could not. bo
attachod to the proper advertising of
our mineral wealth. It was nociHsary
to bring the country prominently before
the public and no bettor way than by
an exhibit at Paris could well be found.
Ho thought money so spent would be
most beneficial to the country.
Tho resolution carried uiianiinously.
It was further decided that a copy of
tho resolution regarding alien legislation would be forwarded to the Vancouver, Victoria and Kootenay Boards
of Trade for endorsatioii.
Mr. Peters thought that the Boards
of Trade of the Kootenays should
make an effort to make an exhibit on
their own behalf at the Paris Exposition in addition to what the Government might, do.   The  Kootenays, bo
said  were molt interested In the mat*
necessary that the. Government of the
Province afford linmieial assistance in
cany ing this out. Bo it therefore
resolved Hull a eoniiiiitlee composed of
the President and Messrs, Macdonald,
Fletcher mid the Secretory be author
ized to draft suitable letters to oilier
Kootenay and B. U, Boards of Trn lo
with" the object of obtaining thefr cooperation in getting BUOh exhibit
together and inducing tho Government to give necessary aid."
A. VY. McVitly, Secretary of tbe
Fort. Steele Board of Trade wrote asking the Board to memorialize the Government on the Crow's Nest, mail service. Tho Nolson, Board lias already
taken a stand on this matter and a
copy of the resolution will be sent to
Fort Steele.
The mooting then adjourned,

Awny back in the fifties there \vnn a
Shawnee Indian village on the South Canadian river, about sii miles west of Smith
MoAle8ter, but tho old villiinu has long
uiiu'o disappeared. On the spot where the
young Shawnee bunk suhk his klowala to
bis dusky maiden and ooufted bis best
girl by tin. Unlit of tlm full moon only '
all occasional ruck hearth and a fow gravel
are left to Indicate tho former hunting
grounds of the red man.
Near tho old village slto now lives a
white num. Just on the border of this
man's farm Is a spot which seems to havo
been the thickest settled part of the Shaw-
nee village, and hero Is a grove of black
oak trees. In this grove are two vory
large Jiost oak troos, one In the south nnd
one In the north ond of the grovo. In the
grove can bo hoard most any day tho buzzing of a swarm of bees so plainly that the
noiso has fooled many old bee hunters,
but all their search has never revealed a
single bee.
Now comes the most peculiar part of
this most poouliartnlo. Tho largo post oak
troe standing at tho north end of the
grove Is the curiosity of tho bunch, for
not long ago a young man, hearing of the
beet, went tothe spot and proceeded to
look carefully up eaoh tree In the grove
until ho came to the north tree. Be was
within two feet of this tree, looking up,
when he hoard a noise just llkoaoarpentor
at work nailing on hoards, and the noise
seemed to come from tho tree. He went
around It several times trying to locate
the hammering, but it still scorned to
come from the tree. The hammering continued until he happened to touch the
tree with his hand, when It suddenly stopped. The man then wont away amazed.
A day or so uftorward this man hud occasion to again pass that way. He slipped
up to the tree and listened for tho hammering, and, sure enough, it was as plain
as over. He touohed the troo with tho ond
of his finger, and, as before, the noise
stopped at once. This man and several
others have trlod touching the tree several
times since, with the same result.
They Bay that the humming of bees and
the curious hammering oan bo heard any
day, but no one has been able to expluln
the mysteries ot this enchanted grove.���

Being a Short Chapter From the History ot Little Susan Gratebar.
"I'm not going to school this morning,"
says little Susan Gratebar, and Mamma
Gratebar, indulgent ever, makes no objection, for the rain is falling very heavily,
the sky is dark, the wind northeast���a
rainy day.
And so a leisurely breakfast for little
Susan, a glance at the clock now and then
as the school hour approaches, and a
sonse of pleasure as it passes and leaves
her here at homo instead of finding her in
her accustomed place at school. For this
Is a break in the routine, a relief from
school and studios, a novolty, for homo to
her in these unacoustomed hours seems
strange, just as to any of us any familiar
thing will seem strange whon seen in any
Vuine of Company Value.
