Mr. Demange, on the subject of Captain Lebrun Renaud's statement that

He added that he was not prepared to
deny thnt he never told Capt. Lebrun
Koii.mil to communicate the acknowledged confession but he affirmed that
he did not speak of it to him. M De-
mange then attributed the qnestion rf
a letter which the nnti-Dreyfnsites as-
peited they bad and in which they
claimed he Bpoke of engagements entered into by Oassimer Perier respecting bim.
The witness emphatically replied
that he had never entered into any such
engagement as alb ged and he asked
that the letter wbijh wns published by
the "Eclair of Paris" shonld he produced in court aud the whole matter
be cleared up Col .Imast then asked
Uretyus if be had anything to sav.
Thereupon Drefyus arose and aoonm-
pa-ying bis utterances with his hand
said: "My words havo certainly been

question of the origin of the documents
remained secret. I gave my word of
houor uot to raise this question and
that is now before my superiors in tbe

"Theu you declare false these tellers
iu v hall it is said lhat the President
of Iho Republic eulerod into certain
engagements with you."
Drnvfus replied: "In nny case the
souse bns been completely distorted."
M Perier gave his evidence with a
blanched faco but in Ihe determined
tone of a man wbo means every word
ntterod which inspired coufldenoe in
his words.
Tlio members of the court martial
listened to him respootfnllv. When
bis testimony was ended M Casimir
Petier wi.s conducted lack to his seat
by an officer and all eyes were directed towards a door to tho right. There
was a moment of pniufi.l suspense
nnd then General Meroier glided
slowly into the oouit and was conducted to the witness stand by a soldier.
He lifted up his light, hand before the
crucifix and swore to tell Ihe whole
truth. The witness npneared.to be iu
broken health, he spoke in a hoarse
voice, coughed f requently and asked
to be hI'.o ved to be seated. Meroier
was dies ed in the uniform of a general
black tonic and red trousers. As he
sar, down he placed a brilliant oiimsuu
nnd gold kept on the shelf attached to
the witness mil where it remained ns
a striking patch of color during the
tine he gave bis testimony which lasted from 8:10 a m. uutil noon. He
leaned lorwai',1 while speaking his
hands sometime) resting ou tbe rail,
but more often be was uorvonsly twist-
ing his lingers and twistiug a pair of
white gloves which ho doffed on entering the conrt Peside his kepi he
pi iced n blnok leather wallet full of
pipers mi the shell und he. accompanied
his remarks with a continual nodding
of the head. To a stringer his ap-
p'araneo and bearing produces a far
from favorable effect. He gives the
impression of shifllossness ; his forehead wus wrinkled, his eye brows
were contracted aud his eyes peered
through his puffy eyelids. Hin cheeks
were sallow aud he spoke almost in an
inaudible and weak monoroiis pitch of
voice whioh produced a Boporitio effect
on those who wore not able to distiu-
gnish his words but- who wore within
hearing of his voice. The monologue
was with hardly a (break except when
the clerk read the various documents
Meroier produced to thn court) lasted
nearly four hours, with ten minutes
suspension at eleven wheu there wns
a general feeling that the witness
wib going to prove, as the Dresyfns-
iiiw predioted, an utter fiasco. Gen.
Mercier wore on his brenst tho decoration of n Grand Officer of the Legion
of Honor. While ho was under examination Gtnorul Meroier asked Col.
Jouast to allow him to present n document showing how nn espionage svs
tern was organized in France by Ool.

Rennes, Aug. 19 ���A stirring scone
closed today's BesBion. General Meroier
had spoken nearly four hours in ruthless denunciation of Dreyfus who had
listened unmoved until Meroier oon-
clnrtod hy saying that if he hud not
bini convinced of the guilt of Dreyfus,
nud the hitter's conviction hnd not
beeu fort'liel siuco I HIM, he would admit they had been mistaken. Dnyfus
jumped to.his teet as thengh tbe words
had galvanized him into life aud
si outed in a voiae which resounded
through tho court like n trumpbot note
"Yon ought to say so now."
The audience burst iuto wild oheors
whereupon the ushers nailed for si-
lenee, but whin Meroier replied be
would ndtnit Dreyfus innocent if thero
was any doubt  the  prisoner shouted :
"Again, why don't yon then?"
At this there was another outburst
of applnnso. M. Oasimer Perior then
rnso and dramatically demanded tn he
oonfronted with General Mercier in
order to deny some of his statements.
Onl. Jouast ordered the conrt to be
adjourned until Monday at (1:80 a. m.
for the confrontation, and as Meroier
turned lo loavo the court the audience
rcse eu masso and hissed und nursed
him.

of distinguishing himself. The last two
hntsmen We'raore, and Macrae, made a
plucky nut hopeless staud.
For Rossland LeMaistre played beautiful cricket uud was ably backed up
by Qrqgau. Tho pair made 8(1 runs
between tbem before they were separated, linlleii und Hallward also played well.
The match did not commence until

to havo tho preliminary arrangtnieuts

A unniber of ladies were among the
spectators and evinced considerable interest iu  the game.
In spile of it beiug oue sided, the

S LATE COAST HBWS
TO VISIT   ALASKA.
Capt. J. \V. Troup L'dt Yesterdav For
Fort Wrangel.
Capt. J \V. Troup, superintendent
ivf Iho C. P. Rs'. Kootenay steamboat
system, left yesterday morning for Fort
Wrangel, Alaska, 011 businscdf for the
0. P. R. Mrs. Troup and duughter uc-
companion the captain to the coast aud
may make the trip to Alaska. This
journey of Capt Troup s is to wind op
the affairs of the company, so tar a
its counoctiou with Stickine river navigation and the "All Canadian Route
to the Klondike" is ciocerned. When
tbe Govermeut projected its great
farce of an " All-Cauadian" route 10
Dawsou, and attempted to subsidize
Mackenzie & Maun to tbd extent of
a,600,000 ucies of absolutely worthless
hind, tor which u railroad was to be
built to Tsslin lhke, the Canadian Pacific sent Capt. Troup to Vancouver
to buib. for them n fleet of river steam
srs, aud to Wrangel to build a dock
and warehouse, thut lhe C. P li. might
be iu a poitlou to handle the business
of tbe now route. Tho steamboats
were buiilt and lanuohed, tbe dock
and warehouse at Wrangel constructed,
and theu the Senate killed the railway
hill aud the "All Canadian'' route fel[
flat, leaving the 0. P. R. with more
than a small fortune tied up in usebss
property.
Oapt. Troup takes pride in the construction of steamboats lhat when bnilt
will overcome the difficulties of tne
waters which it is intended they shall
navigate. He also takes great interest
iu tne matter that such boats mu��t
run to tbe financial success of tbe company. The Stickine river uud "All
Canadian" route offered  Cap*.   Troup
U opportunity to display Ins exceptional abilities 111 the interests of bis
company, aud he went into the work
with high hopes. The trip he is uow
making is fur the purpose of coveriug
up the bones of the skeleton of j Hope,
whose fair form seduced 4500 trusting
Canadians nnd led them up the Stick-
iue to a failure far more miserable
than thnt of the 0. P. R's. Stickine
river fleet, and a failure more disastrous, in that the trusting Argonauts
were less well fixed financially than is
the corporation owning Canada's National Highway.

Robert Jaffray, managing direotor
of tbe Crow's Nest Pass Ooal Company, togethei with his party of

from Grand Forks to Cascade on the

reached Robson iu time to connect

this afternoon received a telegram from
Mr. T. 0. Hawkins, general manager
of the Yukon nnd White Puss Railway, who is now in Seattle: "Washington treasury department wired authority to Collector of Customs at
Skagway allowing perisbnblej goods to
be shipped through in bond, grently k-
licpiug the situation at Victoria and
Vancouver."
Police Magistrate Hnll gave jndg-
ment this moiuing in the oharge
against Clins. Brnsh, "locnl agent for
Kissinger nnd Co., charged by tlie
Provincial police with] having in his
possession for purposes of experti ���
tion, raw doer ekins contrnty to section four of gniuo net. Mr. Brash admitted having 5 000 pickled skins and
18,000 raw skins which he proposed to
have pickled nnd exported in that
state. Tho magistrute in effect set
himself two questions to answer mil
having answered them had no alternative but to dismiss tbe information.
Tho first one was: "Is the exportation of pickled deer skins similar to
those seized prohibited by section four
of the game act?
"On the evidenoe given it is dear,"
said Mr. Hnll, "tbat the seized skins
were not in their raw state and therefore their exportation was not prohibited hy section referred to."
Seoond question was: "Is possession
ot deer skins in their raw state for
purposes of converting same into skins,
similar to those seized and then exporting troni prohibitedV"
To this question nlso a negative
reply sei mod inevitable and for these
reason he dismia-e 1 ihe charge. It is
likely ihe judgment will be appealed,
the Attorney-General's department
haviug suggested thnt this course be
adoptod
If the judgment be upheld an amendment of gunio law will be neoessary if
wholesale slaughter of deer for their
skins is to bo avoided.

A BAD PRACTICE.
A German scientist has inven'ed u
inocess of making coal 'Ibis criifi-
nial full is composed principally of
earth. The invention will be welcomed as a valuable one in mnsl parts ot
ihe world, lint uufnrtnnaiely the main
ingredient of the composition is so
-carce ill Nelson and other Kootenay
towns tb it we are almost disposed to
regard lhe invention with dismay. It
would require only a few years ot' consumption lo leave us willi ni thing
hut rock, and as dirt is necessary to
that interesting occupation of pelting
he mine owners we would he in dan-
ger nt losing "lie ot' our most active industries.
HUDSON'S BAY
COMPANY.
We are showing aH
r'irst-Class Line of     '������
Tne New Westminster ��rit b.i-
hec i addressed to the Returning-Offleer
with instructions tn return it bv t u
31st August. ' That is the most^definile
information that has yet been obtained of an election which is exoiting
unusual interest throughout the Province. It is cuBtomaty in Federal and
all the Provincial elections to name
the exact date on which a nomination
or polling shall take place. That is
the old fashioned method of bringing
on au election. It is not left to the
discretion of the Returning-Offleer.
TheClOWU, represented by the Execu-
tive.appoiuts tho day. aud there is no
trifling with it.
This is ttu rule, and it is a safe  oue
to  observe   on   all   oecas'ons     Sometimes,   however,   there     is   a  depar
ture from     it,    There have   been   in-
tances of writs issued as this  one   has
been, ordering   the latest date   for  its
return, but leaving the   nomination to
the Returning-Offleer.    This is   never
done excepting when the party in power desire to take an unfair   advantage.
Fortuuatcly in Canada it is  a practice
tbat is not so common as to he regarded as an established on", and we think
it is deeply to be regretted that it  has
been   introduced   into   this   Province.
The old way is   the  best.  Let all meu
kuow with the issue of   th6   wiit   exactly when tbe election M to be   held.
Under this new sytem the wiit is   ad
dressed to  a Returning-Offleer who  is
n partisan, aud who is expected to   allow his partisanship   rather free   play
on the occasion. He is limited to a date
beyond which   the return   must not be
delayed, but withiu that   limit   be is
supposed to confer   with   the Government candidate and   between   them to
orrauge a   date   that   will put tho opposing oandidatejnt tbe greatest possible disadvantage.    Thus an instrument
of.tho Crown is made to servo the base
use of-'au   electioneering   device.  Mr.
Henderson and   his  Returning-Offleer
are cousidering wheu if will be best in
Mr. Henderson's interest   to  bring nn
the New Westminster   election.    This
is a feature which it   will be   well fur
British Columbia politics if we all resolutely determine to discounteuance.
The sentence h a little involved, but
there is no mistaking the sentiment
of the following fwjin the Government
organ at New Westminster. It approves
the conduct of a mau who straddles the
fence, and then slides down on tin
ivinning side; and because it an
proves, it is now supporting bim,
It is The Columbian that speaks:
"As Mr. Henderson was elected at the
est genera I election, principally, it
would appear to us. becv.se he so conducted his campaign that, whatever
partv might be in power after tbeelec,
tion, be could conveniently support
that party, it may be presumed that
now that through the accidents of politics, he is so fortunate as to le able to
appeal to his c mstitneots.ns the bolder
uf an in.portent portfolio in tlie Government���aid a Government whose
policy ami record are generally,rightlyi
approved by the Proviuce as a whole
���bis re-election is highly probable,
whether he  shall   be opposed or not. "

E. J. Curran. Prop.
It appears now that the wage question waHoiot considered of primary importance at the recent meeting of the
Mine Owners' Association at Sandon
So little was. it regarded that it was
pot aside in order that the attention of
the delegates might he centered on tbe
weightier snhject of the silver lead industry. So, at least,we ore informed by
Tha New Denver Ledge, which is no
doubt 111 n position to speak with
knowledge of what actually transpired.
J Supposition was enough, however,
anil the mine owners have been
duly abused on the strength of it.
Abuse and misrepresentation are their
portion, and when there is nothing
real or actual to go npnu it beoornea
nooessary to resort to invention. Then
was invention In this imtanoe. Ii
would never do to bavj it get aliroa I
lhat the Slocnn mine owners met t<>
discuss the silver-lead epiestion. That
was quite too innocent. It was impossible with that as a basis to gather
dirt enough t) make one mudhiill, in.(I
that 'any number of mine owners
hIhiiiIiI meet and disperse without
affording some pretext for abusing
them was uot to be thought of. The
silver-lead question is one of very
great importance to tbe Slocan district,
and fo every interest represented In it.
Mino owners and mino workers are
equally interested 111 having the lead
industry of this Province freed of tbo
conditions which aro now prostrating
it, and thero was great danger that a
body of men wbo wore known to have
been erthsirtering it, with the object
of having it established on a moro
satisfactory basis, would excite popular applause.
Tbis was a danger to be averted if
possible, and hence tho invention of
the other story. The mine owners met
to render more perfect thoir plans for
robbing aud oppressing the mine workers, That had a bettor ring to it, for
it left room for the customary abuse.
It is only oue of a long series of inventions, however, ihere IB a belief in
some quarter* that it is uecossary to
keep up strife between the two clasBes,
anil it has become congenial employ-
merit with certain unwearied I "wets
of ^mischief to poison   the meu's minds

namely, the five mile amateur tandem
unpaced which Hooper and Nelaou re
duced to 10.11 LB, What was expected to be the best event of the uftcruoon
the championship match between the
winners of the mile amateur and mile
nrofessional championship turned out
a disappointment. Major Taylor ro
fused to ride against Sumincrsgill, the
English champion. There was nothing
iu it for the colored flyer with no
money iu sight aud without pacing ho
refused to take any chances so Sum
mersgill took tho world's ohampiou
ship by default, riding in 2:1N li-5.
The only other championship event on
the progrnmme, the 100 kilometre
professional race was au easy thing
for Harry Gibsjn of Cincinuutti. He
had the motor to paco him. Starbuok
had uo pace aud relied upon getting
in after Gibson. He lost the puce re-
psatodly. Boake of Toronto, had a
triplet and a tandem. He rode a good
race considering. Other riders had no
paco of their own. Tho SaltonBtall
trophy awarded to tho oountry^makiug
most points in all championship ovents
was won easily by tbe United States
representatives.
The road race wus a flz/.lo; some unauthorized official turned riders back
at about half tbe distance The finish was a warm onejbetweeu three Toronto men. The Royal Canadians of
