Several Places Visited Early
Yesterday Morning.

In All the Stores the  Eleotrio Lights

Some bold, bud hmglars went ont

for months nnd the merchants contracted ii habit of Rleepiug verv soundly
at uiubt, well ntisfiod that their slock

they were iu ihe land of nod. Bnv it

terday nothing but the money wns
taken. The lack door was openrd
from the inside and the robbers went
out that way leaving the door wide
open.
McDonald's fruit store, directly
across from Hyde & Tit's worth's was
also visited. The entrance of this plnro
was a delightfully risky piece of busi-
neis and must have been enj lyod by
the bnrglnrs. Mr. McDonald's store is
a very bright place. The windows
are tirond and always kept spotlessly
clean. An abundance of electric light

feeling that they wore capitalists ntter

Into the store The till wes tried bn>
Mr. McDonald had taken oaro that
there was nothing in it nnd so the robbers got^ none Of OTurse, hnd Mr
McDonald known that nnyono wns
going to take suoh risks to gain a few
dollars he might have left some money
m the till, He now considers thnt
he owes Iho burglars something and if
iluy will call around he will give
'hem live dollars each nnd uot charge
"iivtlnng for the few cigars they took
with them. When Mr. McDonald got
down yesteday morning he found both
'he frout and hack doors open. Evidently giving up fruit dealers as bad
^"hs.after the discouraging result of the
���ut'Doiiald visit, the yonug gentlemen
'"rued their attention to the store of
A. rerland&Oo., In the rear of it
J dry goods box was placed on end
and a number of boards pil��d on it to
wing it mar a window. Then a jim-
ajy was inserted under the window and
"io snap lojk broken so entrance con Id
tie aained. Seven electric lights were
casting their lustre nil over the store
put there was uot quite enough light

1 A Oirnns   Man Who   Was   lo   Hnlurn
With Five Dollurs Change.
A young man who work* in u frnit
store in Ihe City wns a victim of a
very old triok on the nigbt tho oirens
was here A well appearing niun entered the store, explained that he had
written a letter to his mother in To
routo nnd wished to enclose five dollars in it. He therefore requested the
clerk to give him u live d liar bill for
that amount of sliver The bill was
handed o er and some silver placed on
the eonnter. The olerk counted it
nud found only *4.75 und informed
the stranger of the shortage.
"Ob, that's too bad. The fellow
who gave mo lhat must hnve made u
mistake, however I will put ihe hill
iu tho letter (which he prooe9de.1 not
to do as he fooled the young man by
some clever slight of hand work) [and
yon can keep the letter in 'ha till
while I g6t lhe ether quarter."
The sealed letter, winch was supposed to contain lhe live dnllnr bill was
given to the young man, iho stranger
scooped in the silver and departed.
Tbe i lerk wniieu i.ntil niter midnight
nud then onened the envelope to hud
novhiug in ic but a jiiioi' of blank paper.    He then went home.
A number nt such sharp practioes
wi ro indulged in during Ihe day.
However it would appear as if no

to shako off the light fingered gentry

here. Mr. Muiu told the Chief of Police lo keep his eye ou them.

London, Aug II.���The Boer organ,
in London, the Standard und Digger's New, today publishes a Johannesburg dispatch threatening Great
Britain, in the event of war. saying
the Boers aro deturuuued to wreck
mines and ruiu generally the body of
shareholders by blow ing up millions

will mean absolute ruiu to Johannesburg, both as a town and milling centre, and saying :
"While it will doubtless eud in vio-

Intiou of sympathy and tho announce^

Donan has beeu ordered to be in read-
inoss to ship a detachment of horse
I artillery to South Africa.
Rennes, Aug. 11.���Mrs. Emily
Crawford, roviewmg the Dreyfus
trial, says lhat all the notablo Drey-
fusitts here are satisfied with the result nf tho examination of tho secret
dossier. They have urgud their uews-
paners friends ill Paris to olamor for
full publicity, knowing that, if ic is
granted, the military and untioualist
parties will be utterly disgraced. They
aro convinced thut tho diplomatic nud
tvar office dossiers teem with forgeries. Of course, their impressions are
derived from five counsels present ut
the examination of these precious papers. Publicity would menu (he pillory for-General Boisdcfore aud company. Tbey would bo pelted with their
own foul eggs while Oaptnin Dreyfus
would be cleared iu the face of the
whole world Tne military caste here
are furious at tho turn things have
taken. Tho correspondent of a Russian
paper told me today that in a cafe fn-
queuted hy officers, he unfolded the
Brejfusile paper Aurore to read. All
the military scowled at bim in a
marked manner and after roughing and
Otherwise showing their disapproval
Went iu a body to the other end of the
pafe as if the Russian wero a leper.
.AUthe officers at the military olub
came out ou Iho club balcony wheu a
bundle ot Dreylusite journals wob being burned in the streets and they approved ihe porformauoe by uumistake-
able gesluies Oue now sees the wis
dom of the order forbidding officers
not attached to the garrison to stay
here during the trial. I hear tbat iu
unclean imaginings the secret military
dossier exceeds the worse topshelf literature. To secure secrecy the scribes
who worked for Henry aud his friends
did not hesitate to forgo letters from
high diplomatic personages. Nearly a
score of love letters from a lady high
in the diplomatic sphere were supposed t.i havo been seized in the dispatch
box of an embassy during the transmission to Berlin. The person whom
she is represented .is having as a correspondent wns an attache of the em
bassy there and mnch younger than
the lady, who is made to appear as an
impassioned Eloisn. She mentions
Iho Dreyfus affair nnd asks the attache
to help to v hitewusli the unfortunate
captain. Tbo inspection of the diplomatic dossier was concluded this morning Dreyfus on leaving the lycee,
looked brighter than he had ever previously appeared. Tomorrow's proceedings will be memorable in tbe history
of the affair. Maitro Demange hns
lost no opportunity to conciliate the
seven judges. He hns lot himself be
iuterivowed in order to sav nice things
about them. Thnt astuie advocate understands human nature. He remeru-
hors that tho seven are iguorunt of
law, always ready to sacrifice equity
to authority,quick to scout nt the mles
of evidence uud are members of a
caste who think they have beeu attacked by Jews, cosmopolitans and foreigners. Some of tbem boast of not having
read lhe report of the inquiry before
tho Court ot Cassation because they
thought it had beeu published at the
cost of a syndicate and intended to cast
odium on the army. Maitre Labor! is
nnturnliy sanguine and hits alwnys
hoped, but, I can gather lhat both
counsels still see that the judges aro
deeply and strongly prejudiced against
the prisoner nnd will try to condemn
him on his looks, if nil legal evidence
breaks down. Maitre Deinaugo therefore has bnt u single fulcrum, vizs, the
pleasure every human being takes in
hearing himself praised. 1 havo just
learned that tbe secret dossier contains
shocking reports of the Bpies of a Get
man Prince who has tilled; high situations under the ompirn during the last
20 years and oue of Jhem in Paris, a
place he often visits. There is oue
prince answering to this disoription,
Chancellor Von Hoheulohe. Tho po
lice spies who informed tho intelligence department at the wnr office of
the Prince's secret tloingB did not attempt to establish a connection be-
tweeen thorn and the DreyfuRites, but
one must Suppose thut the sole objeot
has been to prevent the dossier even
being published. It wonld be neces
sary to go to Catullus for parallels of
the horrors with which tho famous, or
infamous collection of documents reek.
As matters stand I think Maitro De-
mange now feels that the two Dossiers
furnish him with n case too strong for
oven tho officers to r.Rist; any way, bo
looks hopeful.
SAN DOMINGO |REBELLION.
Tenth Yoar,
August, li, via Hnyti confirms tbe oahle
intelligence telling of the Speoial sig
nifiennce of tho revolution throughout
the Dominican republic. Prominent
men iu civil and military circles, it
appears, are taking the field with tho
niidestaudiug that Jiminez is the
prime moVer and lhat he will shortly
airive tLeio from Cuba with munitions of war. Among his military ad.
heronts were tho well known general-;
Roman PiohSOO and Pablo Roiohs who
ure advancing westward by forced
marches for purpose of cutting off
Monte Christo from reinforcements
and to form a junction with tbe insurgents force from Ha\ ti thus open
ing a way for tho Jiminez expedition
Undoubtedly, tho popularity of tbe
revolution is duo to the use of tbe
name of Gomez] and shonld he (Iodine
the presidency or Jiminez finally op
pose his election,prominent leaders aro
already considering the alternative of
calling n plebiscite in order to ascertain whether the country would not
prefer to renew the vote of 1S71, for
American annexation or Atnetienn
protectorate rather than elect another
dictator, thus securing permanent
poace and prosperity.

PUNCTURED HIS TIRE
Almost  a  Nasty  Accident ��� Finals  for
the Five Mi'e Profe sional and
Amateur Kaces.
Montreal, Que., Aug. 11.���The extra day's racing of tho. World's Meet
attracted only about a thousand pejple,
indications of rain keeping many
away. The prinoiqal feature ou tho
card was the live mile amateur handicap which was won by the Australian rider, Ben Gondson who beat the
Scotchn.au. Caldow, in a rattling finish of a half wheel with Sperritt and
Boisevert,, two Canadians, close up.
There was a nasty spill in the third
trial heat of this race, Lorge of Charlotte, P. B. I.,going over the embank-
tnents at its highest part and bringing
down three other riders Lorge fell
about ten feet ou tho other side und
the fact that ho struck a bicycle with
his chest in his fall undoubtedly saved
him fruiu a broken neck. Of the others.
Riddell of Winnipeg, was badly
scratched.
In tlie preliminaries of the five mile
orofesioual handicap Nat Butler made
a great race l.u the first heat, only being barely beaten out by a short wheel
by bn brother Frank,. Nat's time
made n new handicap competition record for ihe distance. Major Taylor
was the scratch man in the second
heat, Some miscreant stuck a pin into tl.e tiro of the Major's front wheel
just before the start. It was discovered
before the start, and an effort was made
to change the wheel. Finally the
Major started on the injured wheel
but bad to give up after going a couple
nf,mileH. Tom llutlor who had jogged
behind with the Major,had to do some
great sprinting in order to beat out the
sixth man The first four meu made a
nice race nf it, Boake winning nicely
in the stretch. Tho added race wns a
third of a mile amateur sprint.
Scratching lobbed the preliminaries of
interest but, tlio Bemi-tiuals were good
events and the final wi.s a race all
tho way from the pistol to the wire.
Caldow, tbe Scotchman, got the beet
position at tho stretch aud raced home
a comparatively easy winner while
Boisvert, the Montrealer, by a great
spurt bent out Goodson, of Australia.
Jimmy Drury, tbe boast of tbe Canadian amateurs, made nn attempt to
smash the world's amateur paoed record of 1,89, made recently in Eng��
land, but iho best he oould do was
1.48 4-5, a second Blower than tbe amateur American nuuk of 1.42 4-S, Int
considerably better than the Canadian
amateur record of 1 54. Drury WM
paced by a steam motor and bad no
difficulty in keeping the paoe. He
might have even done a faster mile

It will be very   strange indeed if the
resources of diplomacy   shall not prove
adequate for a  complete   settlement of
the Transvaal   affair.    We get curious
reports of tbe Boer character now   aud
again, one to the effect that   they  ate
surpassingly   ignorant   and   arrogant,
aud not always auieuable   to the influence of their   loaders.    It is  possible,
of courBe, that   they   may take the bit
in their teeth and bolt; but tbis seems
batdly likely,   and if  the   control   of
affairs is left to President Kruger  and
bis Raad there will bo a peaceful solution of the troubles.    They   are as uu-
reasonable as the  mass, but  they   understand     hotter   how     impossible  it
would     be   to   resist   British    power
shoulu it come to an issue, and eveu a
Boer statesman knows thut   discretion
iB^the better part of valor.   Ou the side
of   tha   Uitlanders,   Mr. Chamberlain
Would   seen,   to have   taken the direction of the entire dispute into his own
hands, aud as he is uot the sort of per-
sdn to be   buTlied   or intimidated   we
muy expect that in due time Oom Paul
will realise that ha will either have to
yield   to  just   demands   cr light.    He
Will not fight. He would   like   to,   for
he is full of malignity ; but he is clovei
enough to foresee the consequences,and
they have little that   is   comforting to
offer   him.    The Uitluuders  will   not
get all they  ask, but enough to   servo
for a   reasonable   oom promise,   and   n
tomporary peace at least will be patched up.

As Parliament will be prorogued iu
u duy or two, tbe inquiry into the
scandalous practices which disgraced
tbe recent elections in West Huron
and Brookville will., have to bo abandoned iu its unfinished state or carried
over to the next session. It is understood thut the sub-conunittee appointed
ed to draft u report will recommend
tbat the_evideuce ho fur taken be submitted, and thut the inquiry be re-
su.ued when the House again assembles. Iu the meantime it is proposed
that the County Judge shull take the
ovideuce of voters in tbe case of West
Huron, which has developed an astonishing amount of rascality and of a
variety cuculuted to create very Reuu-
iue alarm for tbe sanctity of the ballot.
ThiB intelligence will he received
with general satisfaction. Manipula-
tors_of the Liberal machine have demonstrated their superior expertnoss in
defeating tbe will of the people us ox-
pressed through the ballot box, uud it
is assuring to know tbat Parliament
will demand that their methods be
fully exposed.

A   OLOSE SHAVE.
A. Moores. the man who was committed for trial at Kaslo for escaping
from jail, cnnie np before .ludge Forin
yesterdnv aud oleoted to be ttied by
Speely Trial.
The judKe seemed to have doubts
whether tho case came within his juris
dictiion.
Mr. K. M. Mncdonnld who defended the prisoner,explainer! thnt the legal
fraternity of Nelson were nf omnion
that this was a case which conld not
come under Iho Spiody Trials Act
However, Mr. Bnllcook-Webster had
enlightened tbe lawyers by pointing
out an amendment in tho Act of 1805.
The judge admitted the strength of
[tbe learned Chief of Piovinoial Police,
aud decided ti hear the case.
Mr R. M. Macdtntbl, on behalf of
his client, Ihe prisoner, plrtided gnilty.
He made a strong appeal for clemency
and laid strnes on the fact that the
crime for which the urisoner had been
convicted was a very insignicflaut ono;
nnd moreover the jailers at Kaslo had
been so slack thnt they practically in-
raited the prisoner to escape Moores
I was a prospector and during his incur-
! i oration at Kaslo, assessment woik be-
! came due on some claims be owned.
i He could not afford to pay others lo do
I Ihe work and so he walked out of
j Kaslo jail and went to his claims
i where be was subsequently found.
Evidence of bis previous good   char-
I acter bad been given nt the   prelimin-
I nrv he.iring.    Mr   Macdonald couolud-
ei hy asking the judge to consider  the
fact thnt   the   offence   was   merely   a
technical one aud, as   the prisouer had
already been two weeks in jail, he had
! suffered snlllcienlly.
'    Tho judge, however,   seemed to consider the   nffeuco   a   serious   one  and
conld   not   impose a   lighter   sentence
Hum one month.
Annie Woods theo wns called to
nnswer to the charge of wounding
Norman MacLeod at her honse at Argenta on July 29.
Mr. P Wison m-osecoted and Mr. S.
S. Taylor, t}. 0 , defended.
Dr. Hnrlin nf Kaslo. wsib called tn
testify to tbe nnlnre of the wound.
He said that MncLeod received n
wound about two i ihts long in the
chest; it was evidently made with a
sharp instrument.
Norman MnnLepd was tie next witness, He admitted that he entered the
accused's house under the inflneiico of
liquor and that sho tried to turn bim
out. He went to sleep under the house
then went in again Tbis time lhe
woman became infuriated and stabbed
him.
Mr. Taylor cross examined the v it-
ness severely. One question���a fairly
pointed one too���so excited the witness that he informed Mr. Taylor thnt
he wonld pnll his nose. The witness
seamed a fair match for the lawyer
apart from his phyeicial superiority
Mr. Taylor then called the accused
who said that the prisoner had bad a
row in another sporting house: sho
denied that she had stabbed him but mini itted"fliuging rooks at him "wheu he
was aBleep.
A witness   named Peters was onlled.
Hi had beenjpresent during the scrap
but had been too drunk to remember
what took place.
Tbe judge fonnd the prisoner gnilty
and sentenoed her to six months imprisonment.

The property is Grown Grunted and is situated
on the North Fork of Wild Horse
Creek, uot very distant from tho Ymir
mine.
Fred Hamlin and Joe Dnmont have
located two claims on the Sixteen
Mile Creek. Tbey claim that tbey nave
something good aud iuteud to do considerable work on the claims before
the snow falls.
The Little Pnil is shipping 40 tons
of ore  daily from Ainsworth.
There are SO men employed on the
No. 1 mine, Ainsworth. This property is shipping regularly.
Tbe Rockland, on Four Mile creek,
has a 48-foot lead of gold copper ore.
A tunnel has been started to tap the
vein.
Tbe Albion mine, near Ainsworth,
will renmne work shortly. Tbe company have called a meeting of the
stock holders to meet in Spoknae,
when it is proposed to levy an assessment to raise the nejessary funds.
The deal which was pending for the
ptoperty has fallen through.
A passenger who arrived on one of
the steamers Friday evening, sates
that Manager Ray, of tbe Silver Hill
mine, Pilot Bay, got off at Crawford
creek, accompanied by seven French,
men, who had a number of trunks
with them. It is believed that the
Frenchmen are miners from tbe east.
Tbe directors of tho Florida Mine
in Jackson Basin are pushing things
right along on their property. A new
steel car and track was put in this
week aud is now in operation. They
are well into the lodge and expect to
roach tbe hanging wall this week in
the long tunnel. The property is
locking well and gives promise of ful-
filfrig all expectations.
A contract was let last week for 200
feet of tonne] on tbe Black Diamond
claim, situated on tbe North Fork of
Lardo River, by A W Seigel, of Spo
kane.
A E. Lindberg bus just completed
his assessment work on the Rod Star
claim, situutod five miles west of
Kootenay lake, on the head wateis of
Scbroeder creek, and has brought down
some very nice looking galena ore,
which is now in the window of tbe
Kootenaniau office, Kaslo. Mr. Lindberg states that he has a tunnel in
about 85 feet, which exposes a lead of
one toot and that tbe oro contains (ill
ounces of silver aud TO per cent. lead.
Considerable  copper is showiug.
The Wills group at Silverton is to
be thoroughly oevtloped and Systematic work has already been started.
This group lies on Rod Mountain
aud adjoins the Little Daisy gold pron-
erty. A force of men has been employed all Bummer, stripping and pros-
pocting a big; gold aud copper ledge
that crosses the Rockland claim, one of
the group, with the result that the
company now feels itself justified in
thoroughly developing the ledge. It
has been examined by some of tht
best known oxports and pronounced
equal to anything in the Rossland din-
trio. . Last week a force of men was
put to work to start a tunnel that will
open up the vein at n great depth, and
airangements havo just beeu m .de for
the orection of buildings to accommodate a large force ofi men. This
group is owned by the Willii Mining
Company, and tha work will be done
under the management of Frank Watson, of Spokane.
There was a meeting nf'the. directors
of   the   Fern   Mine last night at   the
Merchant's   Bank of Halifax.    Tbo di
rectors discussed at length the various
proposals for the management of' the
mine. They expressed themselves as
thoroughly satisfied with the work that
bud been done. They hope in a very
few days to start tbe mill again.

Every day people :esk .no what is to

which is to be made al tbe expisitinn
after it is over,"' said Manager Bolster of tho Spokane I'.'x position, "The
same inquiries are coining to Secretary Armstrong. Many peuplo say
that Spokane ought to tn) e this exhibit aud put it where it. can be seen by
all visitors to tbe city ' This would be
a uood advertisement for the mines of
the country. Iu reply lo tbe inquiries I will say this; All exhibits
which are not returned to the senders
will be turned over to tbe chamber of
commerce under whoso auspices tbe ox-
posit inn is given. They will not be
thrown together in a promiscuous
pile, but will be carefully preserved in
their individuality. The labels and and
descriptions will be car-fully cared for
and kept with the ore. The chamber
of commerce will then be able to keep
the exhibits stored away for the following yenr,or will be able to make an
exhibit here in Spokane if it can bo arranged to do so "

What the Vancouver   lJrovinco   Has to
Say Ahout tne ForthcomitiK Match.
Tho hoys of the Vancouver team
wero out at the grounds as bright as
daisies practicing last night. They intend to make the boot J next Saturday
with Nelson interesting, both from a
spectator's point of view and for their
rivals from the Kootenay city. Word
has heen received thnt th�� interior
players are iu good ooudition. They
think that their defence field is pnr
excellence, but don't seem to have
much to say about their home field,
If this is -to they will have n hard
field day before thorn with onr team.
A novel idea has been suggested by a
young lady who goos out to see the
game, and that is that it wonld be better for the spectators if the rubber

tho idea a trial nojt Saturday?
