After the readiug of tho names of
those promoted and on the honor list,
Mr. Bums made a short speech, in
which he dwelt on the good work that
hud been done during the past year,
despite difficulties arising from inadequate acommodatioiiH. Thu enrollment
for the year wns ilflfi, with an average
attendance of 1101. He spoke of tho
difficulties tho teachers in some ot the
rooms had labored under having classeB
only for half a day, one lot of children coming iu the morniug only, and
the balance in the afternoon, and closed asking all parents to attend tho
school meeting today.
Mr. Frew was the next speaker. He
said that in Scotland for tbe first 12
years a child wns taught hardly anything but Scotch history, geogiaphy,
���to. i so that when they grew up,   aud
! no matter where they went tho im.
pression that Scotland was the finest
country in tho world remained with
them, Ho said tbat the Americans
hnd followed suit, and made the teaching iu tho Americun schools principally ou the States, thus inculcating
patriotism and thought more should be
! done in Canada iu that direction.
[ Ho then mentioned a fow of the
Canadian boys that bad risen and wero
prominent figures in tho world today,
Edison, Sir WiIlium Dawson, Gilbert
Parker, Grant Allan, unci others.
After Mr. Frew, Mr. Robson gave
a short address He said that while
patriotism was a groat aud important
thing, to make truly great men education was necessary and the better educated children were the hotter patriots
they could bo. He dwelt on Ihe necessity of never being Idle and how necessary thoroughness wns in everything.
Mr. Rose was then called on. He
told the children how the prize that
had seemed most to him was one won
at school, and said how all through
life one looked back on their school
days, and appreciated ami felt proud
of their successes there. He advised
the children all to work hard while
they were in school, so as to benefit hy
tbe opportunities thore given to them
for their betterment, and ended by
wishing I hem nil a happy vacation.
Mr. Burns then gave a short closing
talk. He told the children to got all the
fresh air and exercise during the holidays that they could, so as to come
buck in the fall ready to do their best.
He then called for three cheers for the
teachers, which wus given with a will.
Before the children were diamissod
Miss O'Reilly spoke a few words on
the coming school meeting and how
sho hoped that many of the parents
would spare enough time to attend.
Mr. Soady, the principal received
a letter from Alexander Robinson, superintendent of education, congratulating him on the good work the school
had done durum the past year and
staling that he thought the staff had
done remarkably well.
ALL WAITING FOR THE 'ANOTHER ACGIDENT
ARRIVAL OF DREYFUS
Great Excitement at the Port
of Brest.
AT TEE WAR EAGLE
EVERYTHING IS SECRET
THE NEW  CABINET MEETS.
to
Propares the Lines of a Declaration
Be Made.
Paris, June 23.���Tbe first cabinet
council of Ihe new ministry was held
at the Eylsee Palace at fl o'clock this
evening, President Loubet presiding.
At this meeting tbe general lines of a
declaration, to be made by the gov era-
meut Monday were decided upon. A
ministerial statement will ho decided
at u council to be held Sunday at the
instance of General, the Marquis of
Gnlicft, Minister of War. Tbe council
deoided upon the transfer of a number
of superior officers of the army for"in-
dulgmg in manifestations unbecoming
a soldier."
The radicals decided to support the
government provided it defends the
Republic. When this decision was
made known M. Ohailes Camilla Pol-
letnu, deputy for Aix.and a few others
withdrew from the group.
The Temps says: "The composition
of the cabinet may appear extraordinary iu the face of the material tranquility existing, but urhappily, moral
tranquilly does uot prevail to tho
same degree. The cabinet will shortly
prorogue parliament and tako upon itself alone the solution of thu Dreyfus
affair. Within the limits of its power,
the government might do some useful
work hy defending tho army agaiiiBt
the imprudent lauguage of its representatives and against the attacks of
its enemies, by causing respect for the
magistrates and tbeir decisions and by
protecting the Dreyfus court martial
against tbe menaces of some.
London, Juno 24.��� M. De Blowitz,
the Paris correspondent of the Times
says the inoogroity and lack of cohesion that characterizes the new cabinet really explain its existence. These
men have sunk their personal ambitions and antagonisms iu order to relievo the oountry from a threatened
revolution. They have devoted ttem-
selvos to the defense of the law of honor.
It is a conception of patriotism and devotion proving that Franco is by one
of thoso supreme efforts familiar to
her in emergencies, proudly retrieving
herself and resuming he - proper place
iu the work of civilization.

MILITARY SUPPLIES.
Orange Freo State Votes Money to
Purchase Military   Munitions.
Bloomfoutoin, Orange Free State,
June 28.���The Violksraad, of the
Orange Free State, has voted ��9,870
for the increase ot artillery tents and
other military supplies. A motion
was adopted directing the government
to adopt tho Mauser rifles as the national weapon A proposal to vote
��22,500 for ammunition was discussed,
but the debate was adjourned.
Trade with Capetown and Johannesburg is at a comparative standstill.
Tbo Germaus who are in sympathy

requesting Germany to intercede in behalf of Pretoria.
FINLAND CROPS RUINED.
London, Juno 24.���Eastern and
Northern Finland, aacoarding to a despatch to the Times from St. Petersburg are threatened   with'famine  and
j fiuods.    The   lato   cold   weather    has
j ruined tho rice crop.
MORE YELLOW FEVER CASES.
Santiago   do   Cuba. June   211.��� Five
I now cases of yellow fever are reported
today,   tbree   soldiers  and   two civil-
, aus.   No deaths reported,
Brest, Frnnce, June 23.���Inhabitants
ot this port absorbed in the pending arrival of Dreyfus. The question on every
one's lips is: "When will he arrive?"
But not one seems able to reply. The
town, however, iB parfeotly oalm. A
few groups of sailors and marines
when found gazing seaward from the
cliffs, admitted they were watohing
for the French cruisor Sfax, whioh has
the famous prisoner on board, bnt ox-
pressed the belief that she would not
arrive iu the dayiimo. Tbey thought
the warship would be kept oustide
the harbor until night and tbat then
Dreyfus would be landed inside the arsenal. Military and civil authorities
profess not to know oven that the Sfax
is coming to Brest.
A reporter of the Associated Press
oalled at the marine prefecture tbis
afternoon and had an interivew with
tho Port Admiral Burrere, who was
typioal of French politeness, but who
displayed most praiseworthy ignorance Taking a map, be traced a
course of the Sfax, from the Cape
Verde Islands aud said: "You see she
cannot have passed the Oanary Islands
before yesterday ��o she will not arrive
here at tbe earliest before Sunday or
perhaps Monday. I have absolutely no
instructions."
Iu spite of this Le Depeoh of this
city, publishes au interview with a
naval officei who is quo'ed as saying
positively that the authorities received fullest instructions long ago respecting military and polioe precautious.
It is understood that Dreyfus would
be landed at tbe arsenal at night, and
strict orders bave been given to prevent anyone from entering the arsenal.
He will then be whisked off to Rennes
by special train Without staying an
hour in Brest. It w-.uld be eaBy, however to land Dreyfus on the coast in
the vicinity of Brest and place him on
board a train without the faot becoming known. The military signal men
at tbe semaphore stations yesterday
received strictest orders to exclude all
strangers. The French first olasa cruiser Tage now lying in the harbor, has
been instructed to put to sea on Sunday
evening, and it is thought she had
been ordered to meet the Sfax and have
Dreyfus transferred to her. but Admiral Barror says the Tago is simply
going to sea for the purpose of experimenting with carrier pigeons.
No doubt a big crowd will be present to witness the landing of Dreyfus,
if ho is allowed to be seen, but no disorders are expected. A detachment of
secret police has arrived here from
Paris and have been distributed about
town.

A WILD APPEAL.
Benupiare Issues Hysterical Document
in Paris.
Paris, June 28.���M. Queanay Beau-
paire has issued an appeal, "To all
honest men" to unite to save the fatherland.
He says: '"I have worked several
months to prepare for the salvation of
the oountry on a broad basis. That is
tho plot I have publicly organized
without accomplioe. My dream has
been French reconciliation, whioh I
havo sought in every rank by my counsels nnd prayers.    Be a patriot."
He adds that be has sowed and earnestly hopes the country will reap the
harvest. He ends his decree by declaring that ho has witnesses who will in-
contestably prove at Rennes that Dreyfus is a traitor.
YELLOW FEVER AT PANAMA.
Colon, Columbia. June 8.���Twenty
deaths from yellow fever out of -ill
oases occurred in the city of Panama
since the first of May. Six oases are
now under treatment but there are
Btrong hopes that the disease will soon
be eradicated. Colon is perfectly free
from yellow fover.
KILLED BY   LIGHTNING.
Manllus, N.Y., Juno 23.��� Delos Ha-
gar and Orloe Hager his Bon, and tbeir
toam and dog wero killed by lightning nbout two nud a half miles south
of hore at 2 p. m. today. Hager
were drawing hay and when the storm
came up took refuge under tho wagon,
which was shattered by a  bolt.
Rossland, June 23.���Another terriblo
accident occurred in the War Eaglo
mine between 10:25 aud 10:30 o'clock
in which three men wero killed, two
dying instantly aud one in 10 minutes
after he bad been brought to the surface and one man was so badly injured that he will die.
The accident waa the consequence
of an explosion caused by an overlooked shot in which about two sticks or
a little over a pound of powder had
been left. The particulars as far as
could be gathered at the mine this
morning were about as follows:
Oharles Lee, Mike Gritlin, Charles
Sturgess and Oharles Coulson, drill-
men, and Danidl Green, mucker,
were working in the west drift oil the
62- foot level, oue hundred feet from
the shaft, having gone to work at 7
o'clock. Lee and Griffin were working one machine and Sturgess and
Corlson were working another. About
20 holes b4d beeu put in the lace of
'the drift. The cut hole iu which tbe
explosion occurred was in a about 16
inobes and oould not have held much
more thun a couple of sticks of powder. It is supposed that the concussions of tbe drills started the powder
and oaused the disaster.
The cut hole iu question was blasted
on Wednesday night and was drilled
hy the same shift which was at work
when the explosion occurred this morniug, tho hole having been drilled on
Tuesday
It is evident that the two powder
sticks which oaused tho disaster this
morning did not explode when tho
general filing took pluoe, as in the
general course of events the drilling
of the shift at work this morning
would have been finished and the firing   have   taken  place   tonight.
[ Wheat Situation Through the Northwestern  Mates.
Minneapolis, June 23,���Speaking to
a Times' reporter regarding the geueral
wheat situation, Charles A. Pillsbury
said :
"1 look upon tlio winter wheat crop
as practically a failure. Tbo winter
wheat section of tho country has not,
from all appearances, raised any more
wheat thnu we need hero at home for
our own consumption, So far as the
northwestern spring wheat urea is concerned, tbo crop is looking and doing
fairly well. In somo low places there
may be slight damage from too much
ram; but on tho whole, with favorable weather conditions from tbis timo
forward,there ought not to botany reason why wo should not huvo up here
a reasonably abundant crop. So far
as Minnesota is concerned, the stato
as a whole never sufl'ored from a crop
failure. This year it may be true that
in some localities where the ground
is flat and low and rains havo been
heavy the plant has developed too much
raukness, hut such areas aro necessarily quite limited."
SISTERS NOT   SATISFIED.
Do Not Thiuk Their Brother Received
a Fair Trial.
Buffalo,   June   23.���Benjamin   Par-
rott, who was hanged in Hamilton this
morning  has  relatives   iu   this   city.
His two sisters, Miss Parrott and Mrs.
Parks,called at a local newspaper office
today to mako  a statement  regarding
the alleged injustice of their  brother's
execution.   Miss Parrott returned from
Hamilton today.    She saw her brother
I last night.
"My brothel should not havo been
J hanged, " said Miss Parrot, "Ho has
j suffered from convulsions ever since lis
was a child and never was responsible
for hiB actions. Another thing is that
be did not have a fair trial. It ho hud,
he never   wefuid havo been executed.
"Ho was not allowed tu produce   all
his witnesses or ho might have proved
j his innocence.      My brother is from   a
| good family and   did uot receive   fair
treatment from the Canadian   authorities. ''
NEW       VENEZUELAN     TARIFF.

A Big Fire at the Leper
Settlement-
FROM THE  KL0NDYKE
Speech by Mr.  Ogihie Giving a Very
Optimistic View of the Gold
Production.
Victoria, June 23.���Word raached
here last night tbat a fire had occurred
on Dare Island at tbe Lazaretto with
loss of .life, and this morning health
ocflier Dr. Eraser went on the steamer
to investigate.
He found that the fire occurred at
1 :80 a. m. on June 15, and was caused
by one of the patients, who was, very
feeble, upsetting the lamp. The flames
spread along the six cabins in a row
which were completely destroyed.
The other nine cabins were unsoorch-
ed and in them the unfortunates took
refuge. They have plenty of provisions
and comfort, left, in faot sutiloiont for
a month. They had buried the dead
lepers and when the dootor arrived the
wounds of the injured ones were dressed.
The Klondike newspapers jnst received report Commissioner Ogilvie
to have been interviewed recently as
to the probability of the Yukon royalty being reduced or removed. He is
reported as replying thus: "Only
Mr. Siftou and the powers at Ottawa
can answer that. They fixed the royalty ; they alone can remove or amend
it. If the published utterances of
Mr. Sifton can be taken, I believe the
royalty will be left to remain as it is.
I have no direct or official advices in
tbe matter. I never advised planing
tbe royalty and I do not believe that
my reports have been responsible for
it. I bave reported a great faith in
the country, and stated tbe facts upon
which I base my faith, and that faith
I still bavo. As a matter of fact I
bave assorted, not only as the result of
my own observations, but those of
men upon whom I can rely that Bonanza creek from UO miles below to 60
miles above will be good for $80,000,-
000 and that Eldorado will produoe the
same sum and that the whole distriot
in the vicinity of Dawson will probably yield $100,000.000.

committed? Why should the Province
be bo overcome at the bare idea of going back to it? What has it doue to
cause such a universal feeling of nan-
sea? Whore is tho injury it inflicted,
tho wrong it has done? Is there not a
bare possibility tbat iu using the expression as one of derision or reproach,
our contemporary has been shallow
enough to permit itself to be imposed
upon by a phrase?
OUR   SCHOOL  AFFAIRS.
There is a very profound and gen
oral conviction that the school affairs
of Nelson are not in a satisfactory
state. A few weeks ago, as a protest
against Government indifference and
negleot, the Trustees took the (xtreme
course of olosing two of tbe departments. They were so uncomfortably
overcrowded that tbe teachers found it
impossible to carry on the work witb
any degree of satisfaction ; and as the
Government, who retain oontrol of all
school affairs down to the minutest detail, continued to ignore the representations of the Trustees and refused to
provide additional accommodation, the
drastic course of closing up was adopted This may not have been the wisest
under the circumstanoes; but it was a
spirited policy, and so far as public
sentiment could be ascertained it was
endorsed by the oitizens.
Out of this rose the further question
whether the time  had not come to re
lieve the Government  of a duty they
were so slow or so relnotant to perform,
and   have   tbe    management   of   our
schools transferred   to those whose interest in them   would be some sort of
guarantee that they would no longer be
injured by negleot.   We have a zealous
and   efficient   body of Trustees, who
are understood to favor  this step.   It
is-also believed that a majority of oi t-
izens would be pleased to have the control pass   from the Government to the
Oity.    Wh en   talking in onr parlors or
drawing rooms, or  at   street  corners,
home rule in our school affairs   is un
doubtedly   the   popular    polioy.   But
this  general   and   aimless   talk   will
accomplish nctbing.    If in earnest  in
demanding control there is oue simple
and   only   direct   way   of  getting it,
and tbat is to attend the annnal meeting this morning and put the wish  iu
the form of a resolution.    It   has been
intimated that   the   Government  will'
provide as early as possible   for  handing over the achools   to our own   control, if the people will signify their desire to have this   done.    The  Trustees
will recommend it at tbe meeting today,
and if  supported  by   the people with
that heartiness we profess to entertain
on tbe question there is no   doubt  the
Government and Legislature will take
tbe necessary action.    It   is  therefore
important  that the meeting should be
a full one,   and   that   all parents  and
other citizens who   are   interested  in
seeing our schools keep pace with   the
general    advancement   should   attend
to strengthen the bands of  tbe   Trustees.
Some doubt was   expre��sed   whether
Router's commissioner, Major Haider,
had really criticised onr mimug laws
and regulations as freely as represented
in the interview as published   in   The
Colonist.    A   day   or   two after it appeared   the Mining Committeo   of the
Victoria Board   of   Trade  telegraphed
their endorsation of  the   views   attributed   to    him,   and   the reply   very
effectually   disposes   of  any     further
doubt.    He says:   "Please   tbank   the
Mining   Committee   of   tbe   Board of
Trade for their   kind  telegram of yesterday's date,   agreeing   with my   re-
oent criticism   on local mining conditions.    Only through  the united effort
of praotioal and  enlightened men will
we suoceed in bringincr   ihe country to
its real   level   and   to a parallel   with
Darkest Africa (as one of the local papers names my   experience),   namely,
the Rand, where a half-million ounces
of gold are produced monthly.    I shall
always endeavor to do ray best while I
am here, with   the  assistance of  Victoria's Mining Committee."

TURN ABOUT.
Those  Montrealers    who    resented
what they   took   to be  discourtesy   in
the omission of the customary salute by
the Vermont   Post   of the   G. A.   R.,
when   marching   past   her   Majesty's
Btat'.:o,     were   more   easily    offended
than there was any need for.    No discourtesy was intended, and if the salute was omitted it was doubtless  because the visitors did not know it was
the oustom on military parades.   The
visit of the Post was a compliment to
Montreal,   to  Canada, and to the flag;
they did not   take the trouble to  cross
the   frontier   to   show  disrespect to a
sovereign who  is as much revered for
her womanly  virtues by the American
people as   by  her   owu.    Even   when
American feeling was bitterest against
Great Britain, it was  rare  indeed   to
hear   anything   but   warmest   expressions  of   respect   aud   admiration for
Britain's Queen.

YMIR AROUSED.
The New Westminster Columbian
is net disposed to accept tbe judgment of The Miner, in declaring for
the late Government in preference to
the present one. It wheedles us into
an expression of opinion, and then
scoffs at it. We bad almost been flattered into the belief that it was preparing to be impressed, and tbe wound
to our vanity may be imagined when
our opinion is deseiibtd as full of animus and presentiug an unmistakable partisan tiuge. This is wioked,
in that it is obtaining a confidence under a folso pr:tence; we need not re-
murk ou the cruelty of it. With all
respect, however, we must repudiate
the animus and the tinge. Unlike
the Columbirn, Tho Miner is free to
judge between men and parties, aud to
express its oandid opinion, without regard to the frowns or smiles of either
Bide.
Our contemporary professes to entertain very strong opposite viewB, as
���witness: "The idea of going back to
Turnerism is enough to make the
oountry vomit. " This Turnerism is a
qualify of peonliar character. The
other day we saw it described as embracing everything tbat was good and
honest and patriotic In The Colombian's mouth it is a term of reproach ;
it is something that is not only bad,
but repulBive. Now, turn about is
fair play, and as our contemporary
put so ne questions to The Miner it
must not object if The Miner shall
put some questions to it. What is this
Turnerism that it so despises and condemns? This is not asked idly or in a
spirit of mischief, but with a sincere
desire to get at the truth. In Ministerial papers like The Columbian we
have seen, many times these past six
months, the term used in a sense to
suggest great political and moral depravity, but we have never understood
wherein tbe depravity oousisted or
evou why it should be supposed. Will
Tie Columbian explain? What is this
evil Turnerism,   and what evil has it
To the Editor of The Miner:
Sir:���The citizenB of Ymir are highly
indignant over the actiou of ono or
two schemers who, unbeknown to tbe
residents and property holders of this
town, placed witb the Provincial authorities at Victoria, three days before
the session closed an application to incorporate the town of Ymir. This
news has only jnst leaked ont. A
large petition signed by ninety-nine
per oent. of the proDerty holders has
been forwarded to Victoria, condemning such an unwarranted move. What
raised the ire of tho people of Ymir
was the secret and cowardly way in
which this matter was taken np.
Should tbe Government listen to the
application of one who is nothing more
than a worn out political jobber from
Ontario, it certainly will not get any
support from voters here, should they
again appeal to the country.

Possibly ho was a little severe on

NEWS FROM FERNIE AND ELKO.
Mr. T. Procter returned from a short
visit to Elko and district yesterday.
Ho says that things are pretty quiet
there Parties of surveyors are busy
on the new north aud south road from
the Boundary country to Windermere.
The disaster to the Fernie mill iB not
as serious as has been reported. The
hoiler house was washed away and the
whole building hns sunk about six
feet thus putting everything out of
plumb and probably necessitating the
orection ot a new building. All the
machinery is intact however, and
most of tho logs were saved.
When the mill was constructed the
weather wise shook their heas and predicted sooner or later a "wash-out"
for they considered the site was incautiously chosen. Some authorities took
it as a mat tor of course when they
heard of th.'. disaster.
Tbe Movie and Elk rivers are very
high and angling is for the present,
out of tho question.

Work on tbe Royal Canadian group
progresses steadily. The owners are
well satisfied with the contract arrangement bnt the contractors are not
making "big money" out of their
jobs. A vein tS inohes thick has beon
discovered on the Nevada claim,
which belongs to this group. Mr. La-
ing Stocks has bad an engineer up at
the claim to report on the new strike.
Tbe vein is reported to be SO feet long
and fiO feet deep. Over two tons of ore
have been taken frrom it.
* *   *
Mr. McEwen who has recently returned from the Similkameen gives an
interesting account of that country.
At present there are no mines there;
onlv a few claims have had assessment
work done on them but tbe ore there
is very rich and those who have interests there are very confident of future
sunoess.
Tbo principal townsite is Princeton
in which Mr. Arthur Hickliug and
Mr. C. Waterman, a mining engineer
of Vanconver, are largely interested.
At present the resident population
consists of about 800. There are two
good hotels and Beveral stores there.
The townsite is singularly wel 1 located.
Mr. McEwen thinks it one of the most
beautifully situated in the Province.
A number of prospeotors have gone
into that country this spring. Seme
of them come via Spence's Bridge but a
number ride in from Rossland via
jreenwood. Fairview and Oeremers.
The country is admirably adapted
for ranohing. Fruit of all kinds grows
there luxuriantly. One ranch, that
of Mr. Richters' in particular should
be noted. This ranch was started iu
18<>4. Hern may be found peaches,
cherries, plums, pears, in fact every
kind of fruit of the very finest quality.
Mr. McEwen considers that the Similkameen country has a great future
before it.

Mr. Kelly ascended into tbe Exchequer yesterday morning. In the evening he descended into Nelson well
pleased with his visit. He states that
the mine will be shipping ore within
three weeks from date. There are from
50 to 60 tons of ore on tbe dump at the
present time. A connection has baen
made between the shaft and the tunnel
and ore ohutes are being constructed.
Stoping will be oommenoed at once.
Mr. Kelly paid a call at the Athabasca
and heard that work was going ahead
there, the mine being almost full
handed.

Wallace, Idaho, June 23.���The
Missouri miners for the Standard
mine here arrived abont 10 o'clook
tonignt, coming from Tekoa on a special train. All the way along the linn
representatives of labor organizations
bave been trying to induce the in""
not to come, and some bave stopped
over. Permits will be issued to the
men immediately, and tbe mine will
be started up tomorrow. The baggage of the advauce|guard of Missouri
miners coming to work in tbe Standard mine arrived today. There were
about 50 pieces, mostly valises, with
few trunks, all from Jopin, Mo.
Deputies of Coroner France are in
readiness to issue permits immediately
on their arrival at the Standard mine,
so they o in begin work tomorrow, if
desired. The miners are under contract to work in the Standard or other
mines near Wallace for $8.50 a day.
Mr. Smith of the mining company,
so the men stated in an interview,
has undertaken to place 1,000 miners
at work in the Couer d'Alenes. Tbis
was the first in-.tallment. The men
are all members of the miners' union
and are under a foreman named Rowe

A HOSTILE   PEOPLE.
New French Ministry Has to Face
Them.
Paris, June 28. ���Not for a long period has a Frenoh ministry been greeted with suoh sign? of unanimous hostility.
Judging from the tone of the papers ot all shades, tbe cabinet can
scarcely live a single day. It is rumored that parliament will he proro
gated in a few days to enable the government carry out its programme unhampered. No doubt the cause of hostility is the presence of General De
Gallifet and when tbe paroxysm of anger has exhausted itself it is not unlikely that a revolution of feeling will
oocur and that the government will
get a good majority in the chamber of
deputies.
It is announced that the Dreyfus
trial will bo absolutely publio. Former President Cnsimir Pener with
General Meroier, who was minister of
war whon Dreyfus was condemned,
and many other prominent men have
taken apartments at Rennes.

"DuPatyde Olam will be brought

Mademoiselle Dn Paty de Clam are already here.
It is rumored that the moment Oaptain Drefyus arrives the condemned

proposals. All that is left now is the
drafting of the regulations for the
boards of procedure. The information
from tbe Germans is that Emperor
William will separate himself trom
the other powers in the arbitration
question and German delegates antici-
pftto a favorable docisiou on that point.
Tbo work is so far advanced that tho
conference will probably take a holiday
after June 28 in order to allow tbe delegates to refer to their respective governments for final instructions. The
Turks state that no one is able to say
that they object lo the arbitration
scheme, aud that when the proposal
has been finally shaped they will examine it and onlv then give an opinion, referring to Constantinople tho
wording if the scheme contains points
not coversd by their instructions.
