AWAITING THE VERDICT
Decision of Oourt-Martial ��xpeoted at any

Against Anticipated Biota-
-Yesterday  cam a
Rennes, Sept. 8,
the beginning of the end of the Dreyfus trial. With the speech of the Gov-
erninput Commissary, Major Carriere,
the case entered npou the finnl stage of
nln.tling- and the verdict will be delivered on Monday. There is even talk
tonight of the trial ending tomorrow
hy holding un extra afternoon session
for M, 1 ���"'���"'���i's speech aud have judg-
v over Snnday in order to
iiiiniH which wonld
probably, .cansf! btoodsltjed -on > ,d��y
when fiie'worltmen iirilfrce'.' The Government is not only fearful regarding
Rennes, but is particularly concerned
regarding Paris and other large towns
where passions have been heated and
the'verdict, whichever way it is given, certain to give rse to trouble.
Oolonel .lonast, thiB morning took ai.
important decisi' u entirely upon ihis
cwu responsbility, although be is undoubtedly only the mouthpiece of the
whole body of judges, His decision to
exclude the testimony of Oolonel
Pohwattzkoppeu and Major Panizzardi
was most slgnicjailt, ns it meant that
the court had already reached a conclusion nnd that the pleadings of counsel
weie .Merely a waste of timo and might
he dispensed wi*b- if -they were not a
necessity, The court has mnde up its
iniiiil Imt which way? This is the
view point aud forms the sole topio
of disonssion. Both sideB are equally
cunfideut thnt the court will decide
in accordance with their views. The
Dreyfusards declare that the judges
enn not condemn Dreyfus after rejecting llio decisive evidence which Colonel Schwartzkoppen nnd Panizzardi
wonld have given in his favor.
The anti-Dreyfusards, ou the other
liiuirl, explain toduy's rulings on the
ground that the judge's recognize that
Hie evidence of tho two military a;-
tttohis would be worthless,because they
would he morally bound to save their
agent at any cost.
A sample of this reason wns given
hy un aiiti-Drefynsard journalist, who,
when praising Oolonel Jonast's decision, exclaimed: "What weight could
be attached to the testimony of
Kchwurt-koppen and Panizzardi!?
The receiver of stolen goods must
shield the thief as much as he oan,
From the popular point of view, the
8iene in court when Colonel Jouast
-Olivers the judgment will be divested
of its most sensational feature, owing
to tlie absence of the central figure.
Captain Dreyfus will be-' taken to an
adjacent room, wheu the judges retire
to consider their verdiot.. A moment
befirri; they are to re-enter, a bell will
be lung and as they take their plnceB
behind the long table on tbe stage the
infantry guard will present aims and
remain at present arms while Colonel
Jouast, standing in the center of the
platform reads the verdiot.
Oaptain Dreyfus will not be bropght
buck to the oourt room and will not be
present at the public meeting of the
JMgr.H, but when ihe court room haB
been denied by the gendarmes, wbioh
will be done as soon as Colonel JouhhI
concludes, the reading clerk of the
court will proceed to the room wbere
Drey'fuB will he waiting and read to
him the verdiot in the presence of a
couple of gendarmes. The pu. lie will
thus be robbed of the spectaole of his
emotions, which are bound to be nioBt
profound whether the decree sends him
'o the arms of bis family or hack to
'be penal settlement.
The verdict may be a condemnation,
on unequivocal acquittal or a form of
acquittal that would be equal to the
Scotch verdiot, "pot proven." The
��'t will h0 (he   eaHe   i(    the   jud(?eg
should  pronounce  against him   by   a
at liberty, while unanimity���six to
one or five to two���will convict him.
If convicted tho judgment will be
carried to the military court of ap
peals, which will be u formal matter.
The special court will only quash the
indictment and order a re-trial if it
should be established that the present
court martial bus oired in a mutter of
procedure. This is in the highest degree improbable. The court of oiihsii-
tion will also havo Ihe right to order a
re trial if it should decide that the
court martial has deviated from its instructions. This is the only loophole
for Dreyfus, and his friends will undoubtedly tight this point tooth and
nail.
Extraordinary methods have been
taken to spirit Dreyfus away, whether
acquitted or recotidemned. His departure from Rennes will bo 'enveloped
in the same mystery ai was hia arrival.
That Capt. Dreyfns will be condemned is almost the universal opinion
heard in Rennes tonight. Hitherto
there bad always been a divergence
but bow both camps, the Dreyfusards
and the auti-Dreyfusurds, seem unanimous in the conviction Hint the verdict
will go against him, Upon just what
tbis is based and the'precise reason for
their oouolusior. are a mystery bnt
thine is no disguising the fact that
from S4...%aboji down to tlie numerous
Dreyfusards who crowd" the hotels and
cafes and who last night were still
hopeful that Dreyfus would be saved
all seem now to agree that his last
chance is gone.   .
The one source of hope is M. Labori j
himself, who said this evening : "We
fear that Cnptaiu Dreyfns will be condemned, bnt we don't intend to throw
up the Bpouge; we shall go on fighting
for nim.'!
M. Janres, the" Sooialist leader   and
other promiuent Dreyfusards expressed
a similar opinion.    Excitement   is  at
fever heat   and   nothing  is   discussed
but the /erdict  of  the morrow. . The
military   precautions   are of the  most
elaborate   character   and   no   attempt
at disorder is likely to hhvn the slightest sdcc_Ks. OuteVs havo bee'i issued to
repress any  symptoms  of trouble with
an iron   hood.    A   small   nuti-Scm.te
meeting   was   held here  this  evening
and tbe complete calm that attends is
an indication of a quiet day tomorrow.
A strong force of gendarmes guarded
the approaches to   tbe building   where
the meeting   was held and   the  oiders
were to anest the first man who raised
a   seditious   cry.    Nothing,   however
ocenrred.    Indeed   the   inhabitants of
the  town   Eeem   indifferent  and   tho
neigborhood  of    the   Lycee   and   the
prison is deserted, save for a few gendarmes.   The news of   the publication
of Count Von Buelow's speech   in   the
Reichstaszelger reached Rennes tonight
and is considered   very   important  on
the eve of a verdiot,   which,  in  s'liuc
quarters it is thought, will   be regarded ns a slight   by   Germany If it he  a
condemnation, as being  tantamount to
public refusal to take the word of Em
to the Hand, nMiough the information obtained is un-iatisnctory. Nevertheless, and with a view to the result
of tin, in ugiiaiioiiH which are pending,
the Raad declares itself determined in
the meantime to maintain the right
iiud independence of the Republic"

To the Editor of The Miner
Will you kindly permit me to occupy your time and space for u few remarks on llio Bight-Hour milling law.
As it stands today on our s.atute books
it not ouly prohibits the mine owner
from employing a man to work to exceed eight hours underground, but prohibits a miner from working over eight
hours underground A penalty is at-,
tached iu both, instances,.
The b��8|i legal talent in the country
pronounce the act constitutional, That
means, then, thut the Parii-meut, of
British Columbia bus taken from the
miutr his personal liberty. In other
words the law says to the miner, jon
oauuot ex��rci.-c your strength to work
overtime for an hour, or two hours on
a shift and draw additional pay for
the same, thus increasing your income
very materially during the month
On the contrary you have ouly a right
to make so many dollars, at, your work
uudergrouud, per month. If you do
make more than the law stipulates, yon
havo disobeyed the law, and are liable
to arrest ani a penalty placer, upon
you.
In the same way it says to the em.
ployer if you allow iiliy Of your underground men to make more in your cm-
ploy than the amount stipulated by
Act of Parliament you have disobeyed
the law aud are liable to arrest aud
punishment. The act dees not say in
so many words that this is so, but no
possible conception of it, no distortion
of it can arrive at any other conclusion. There nre only 81 days iu the
longest month. At (3.50 per day of
eight hours, .108.50 is the maximum
that the miner can earn, aud that is
the maximum his employer can allow
him to earn. If Parliament can limit
the miner iu the amount of bis earrings, why can it not also limit any individual or  corporation   in   the  same
dissatisfaction expressed, exoept among
the ohrouio kiokers, nnd these, like
the poor, we always have. Other industries were in a Hour shing condition. Business men were doing well,
paokers, wood choppers, blacksmiths,
etc., were husy aud making money.
The mine owners themselves, while
not renping any rich harvest were con
tent to keep the mines running although silver was low   and   the   duty
ii| on 1 1 enormous.    Sti 1   the   mines
were running and developing. Some
of Iheiu were running behind, but de
vflopment work was poshing rnpidly
ahead.
That was the condition existing at the
time the act went iuto liberation
What are the conditions today? Everything is at a standstill. Nearly all of
the wage earners have left the country,
and the blight of stngont on is felt all
over the Slocan region.
While such ejects are bad enough
the worst remains lo be told. The
passing of this act has 1 d to an open
rupture between the employer and the
wage earner. Where all was peace and
good fellowship, now reigns hatred,
abuse and non-intereour*c. The mine
owners offered to keep the mines running if the men would accept |_ per
day, instead of |8,50. The miners refused to accept the proposed reduction
of wages with the re-nlt that meu and
mines nre both idle. Could the members of lhat wis* ( ?) body of legislators have foreseen this? Tbe law is
certainly of uo hen fit to the owner,
and just as certainly is it the oase
with the laborer. It has paralyzed the
prosperity of the Sioonn, for when our
mines are closed,activity is replaced by
inerlness,failure takes the plaoe of suo-

before noon after adopting unanimously
the following resolutions
"The Volksraad having considered
that friendly correspondence is still
passing between the two governments,
that the concentration of troops iu
great numbers near the border haB a
detrimental and restless effeot on the
inhabitants of the state and that tbe
Transvaal has lived in friendship and
pence with all nations and desires to
contiuuo to live in such friendship and
peace, now declnres its regret at the
fact of this concentration and expresses
the opihiou that in the case of eventualities, whioh might lead to enmity
or war between the two Governments,
Ihe cause would not lie  with the Re-
piildic?
" As regards the stoppage of ammunition at, Delagoa Bay, the Volksraad

But Parliament has not done this, it
bas only selected the miner who labors
underground.    Hero then is a   flagrant
act of injustice doubly done   His earnings are limited and tbe amount which
he can receive at a   giveu   wage  rate
limited.    At   |2   or   .8   per   day   the
amount is reduced, at |5  it is increas
ed     But the wage rale once agreed up
on the limit is fixed. If the act is con-!
stitutional  the   only   remedy for  the
miner, as u wage earner, is to have tha
law repealed.    Why,   iu   God's  name
did not Parliament complete  its  work
and set a limit   to the earnings of   the
ship builder, the logger, the fisherman,
the big railroad   and steainbo it corporations, the carpenter and the  butcher,
baker  aud   candlestick   maker.      The
only great industry of the whole interior of the Province   was slapped iu the
face and ordered to    retire to (he rear.
The   great   artery, the   fountain-head
of  the wealth of   tbe whole Province
severed by this aot and it is  constitutional. Well, there   is  plenty of  room
for improvement   in the   constitution.
Why, if Parliament- really  wanted   to
improve    the    condition   of    mining
men did it   not   pass   a   law   making
eight  hours  a legal  day's   labor   and
give him the   privilege   of   improving
his condition gettiug   overtime   if  he
chose to work, at any time the employer desired  his servicers.    As  a   miner
and a uni in-man I am uot prepared lo
say that  eight   hours  is   not   mongh
timo   for a day's labor.     I   believe  it
is.    Taking into consideration   tho life
the miner has to live, the time is sufficient,   iu   my   judgement.    However,
looking   the   facts   in  the   face today
from   an    unprejudicd    standpoint   I
believe the passage of even   the   right
kind of an eight-hour law last   winter
would have beeu   premature   and   ill-
advised. ���
Take for example the Slocan country.
At the time of the passage of the law
and up to tho time of its taking effect
the whole of this section was in a
thriving, prosperous oondition. Hundreds of mines were workng steadily at |ll. 50 per day of ten bouts. The
miners were   satisfied,   there  wus

REV. MR. ROSE RETURNS.
Pastor of the   First  Baptist    Oburch
Will Remain in Nelson.
It will   be   remembered   that  some
weeks ago   Rev. Mr.   Rose,   pastor  of
the First Baptist Church, tendered h is
resignation on   account of   serious  ill
health.   Mr. Rose is very popular with
the members of hie   congregation  and
tbey persuaded him to take ajhorongb
rest and after   be   gave   it a thorough
test   to consider whether or not to resign.    This Mr. Rose did, and left tho
Oity  in   eearoh   of  rest   and  health.
Last evening he returned, the very pio-
ture of   good   health  and spirits  and
bas qunite   made   up   his mind to remain in Nelson.    During   his  holiday
he left   work entirely alone and   as  a
result the ailments with which he was
suffering have completely passed away
and he says he feels  at least ten years
younger.    He will  resume  his  duties
tomorrow when he will  conduct both,
services iu the Baptist  chnroh.     Tin-
news of Mr. Rose's restoration to health
and  his decision to continue his work
in this  City   will   tie  reoeived  with
pleasure, not only by  members of  hi*
own congregation but also by a".l thosn
in the Oity who have met him ajd become impreesed with his sterling qualities.

A THIRD PARTY.
Iu The Vancouver World editorial
mention is made of a rumor thnt Mr.
Robert ion, member for Oowicbsn,
will resign in favor of young Mr. Mclnnes, who is dropping nut of Dominion politics becitase of dissoli-faction
with the Liberal party, and i< desirous
of taking a band, oi foot, in the Pro
viuoial scrimmage. The World adds
that no one need be sorprised should
the shuttle be made Is this a sequel lo
the other rumor that the yonuu man's
father, who is nlso Lieutenant Governor, is Intriguing foi tin' political advancement of   his   family,   the present
extraordinary   situation affording as
favorable an opportunity as the paternal
heart could desire'/
A fairly full report of Mr. Joseph
Martin's Labor Day speeoh at Nanaimo
is published in The Vancouver Province One hardly knows what to make
of it. He leaves no doubt as to his
own position. If no one else, he says,
is against the Government, he is.
The Government has not the confidence
of the Legislature, and ought to resign. It must resign as soon as the
Legislature meets, for then it will lie
defeated. Aud this will be followed
by n geueral election. On all these
points Mr. Martin makes himself as
clear as there is any occasion for. His
opinions may be worth much or little,
but no one is left in doubt as to what
those opinions are. He Is against the
Government, says it is in a minority,
thinks it should resign, and believes
there will he a general election soon
after the House meets. So far all is
dear, but what is to happen after dissolution?
This is a question that has evidently puzzled Mr. Martin himself, for
he touches ou it, but shies quickly, as
if he did not know what to say. He
thinks Turnerisni is preferable to Cot.
tonism, but leaves it to be understood
that he docs not want cither the one or
the other. There is a pushing reference
to division on Dominion party lines,
but without effort to make anything of
it. What is left? Reading between
the lines, one sees a deeply calculated
determination to raise up a third party
to orowd iu between the orher two���a
labor party, of which Mr. Martin is
to be the leader. All through his speech
he makes bids for labor support. He
begins it with a bid of that kind. It
is iu reference to the champerty case,
which he explains and defends as an
agreement to "help the poor against the
rich." He is on the side of the poor as
icrainst- the rich, of labor as ngaiusr
capital, of the masses as -against the
classes. Little touches here and tbere
throughout the speech nil tend to give
this impression, ns was doubtless in-
teuded.
Here is the demagogue, whose character looms up largest in the composition of Mr. Josoph Martin, and always
did. The man cannot help it. His
natural mind was neither broad nor
generous, and his training never gave
a fair chance to its development. Tur-
nerisra may be a very bad thing We
bave uot been able to discover what it
is or means, but we are willing for the
present purpose to admit that it is not
desirable to revive it. From Mr. Martin's description,there can be no doubt,
that Cottonism is very bad indeed.
Kut bad anil all as they are, we think
it well to waru nil who may feel themselves concerned that either one of
them is vastly to be preferred to
Martinism. Ab wo do not know what
Turnerisni is, we do not kuow what
barm it bas done. From Mr. Martin
we gather that Cottonism is a quality
that delights to rule, and that in in
desire to have its own way it will not
stop at falsifying a pnblio record. liet-
ter suoh evils as these than the introduction of a spirit that would never
rest until it had stirred up strife
BmO'Jg the people, having one class
fighting with another, setting neighbor against, neighbor, nnd so disturbing the very basis of society that busi
ness would become paralysed. That is
the one thing British Columbia cannot
afford. We may stand a Government
in a minority and a Lieutenant-Governor who looks on with a smile, but the
deningogism of Mr. Joseph Martiu
would be too serious a matter for a
Province that is just entering on the
first stages of its development. We
wunt harmony, not discord; confidence, not distrust; union, not division. To avert this evil that is threatened, better a hundred times that
Turneristn and Cottonism should unite
to form one party.
Mr. Cotton's paper is not pleased
with the methods of the Opposition
papers of the Coast It accuses tbem
of making personal attacks on public
men.which it thinks is very bad form,
indeed, and much to be d ipreonted.
It has doubtless most prominently in
its mind's eye tbe "attack1" on Mr.
Cotton himself, which consists of a
fair and moderate restatement of a
charge made by Mr. Joseph Martin
while Attorney-General, submitted
iu writing to the Premier, to the effect
that Mr. Cotton had tampered with
the minutes of the Executive Council
aud given tnem a meaning they were
not^ intended to have. Perhaps it is
natural Mr. Motion's paper should see
something wrong in this, but uo other
paper or person very well can And
instead of complaining about it, Mr.
Cotton's paper would be nioch better
employed in persuading Mr. Cotton to
explain the charge away���provided,
that is, suoh an extremely convenient disposition of it can be made.
One paper having said thai a million
dollars had been lost through the closing down of the Blooan mines, another
says, not so; the oro is still iu the
mines aud therefore cannot be lost. In
tbis reply we get n glimpse of statesmanship and knowledge of economics
thnt is positively blinding in its brilliancy. Why nil this bother and excite-
ment over mines and mining and
eight-hour days and] companies and
syndicates and capital? It is all a
waste of temper and energy. We are
rich withont it. The ore is in the
mines; what more oan we want? To
dig it out and smelt it mukes il no
rnoie valuable,   nor adds to the wealth
THE DEWEY CRAZE.
It is Now Breaking Out   in   its   Most
Malignant aud Expensive Form.
New York, Sept. 8.-The National
Sculpture Society today submitted
plans to Commissioner Brady, of the
building department, for the erection
at Broadway and Fifth avenue of the
Uewey arch and oolonade, Architect
Ohas. R. Laiube gives the cost as $.H, -
500. Sections of the columns which
form a part of the Dewey arch were
pnt in place this morning and one of
the colonndes is half up. The top of
the arch will bo in place iu a few days.
The figures of the Admiral's nrch are
now practically completed and the
first of tbem will be ta.eu up to the
arch Monday. They average nbout la
feet in height nud weigh approximately 7C0 pounds. Frank W. Sanger,
of the music committee, had a conference today with President Weinacht,
of the Arion Society and President
Mittendorff, of the Leiderkranz Society, it was decided that a united
chorus of 260 voices from the two organizations shall go in the float
"Peace" and accompany tl.e Olympia
up the harbor and sing hymns and
songs of weloome. General Roe has
received applications for places in the
land parade from n brigade of Kew
Jersey militia from 1,��00 to 2,000
strong. From Connecticut he has
learned of 1,000 soldiers coming mid
Ool. Stein, of West Point has announced bis intention of marching in the
parade at the head of SOO West Point
cadets. The indications are that the
visiting troops will exceed 10,000 in
number.
PROSPECTING EXTRAORDINARY,
The Rossland Miner is responsible
for the following account. Apparently the ago of miracles is not yet
dead:
"Mr. Littlojohn says a lady recently
visited Forty-Nine Mile creek, who
seemed to be able with the aid of a lit
tie mechanical device which she carried in her bands to locate ledges. The
machine is the indention of her father
She holds it firmly grasped iu both
hands and when she comes where there
is a ledge a portion of tho mechanism
swings two arid fro. She was taken to
places where it, was known thero was
a ledge although there waR uo appear-
ance of it n the surface, aud the device
would always commence to vibrate
when she stood over a ledge. Mr. Lit-
tlcjohii says that the ability* of this
wonderful woman to find ledges was
tested in a dozen different ways and
never ouoe was she at fault. No
charge is made for the woik which she
does.''
WHEELMEN,   ATTENTION ! *
A number of wheelmen met laRt
evening at the City Hall, and after
tnlking over cycling matters to some
extent, it was agreed by those present
to issue a call for a general meeting of
all the wheelmen iu tbe City. Therefore, it is urgently requested that all
interested in cycling matters meet nt
the City Hall on next Frridny evening
ut 8 p. m., for the purpose of organizing a wheeling club to affiliate with
the Canadian Wheelmen's Association.
The cyole track is in a deplorable
condition and immediate measures
should be taken to repair the same
and for its better protection during the
winter.

THE SPOKESMAN-REVIEW.
Nelson cannot fail to take a kindly
interest in ant'lit that emanates from
Spokane, tot the two cities, though of
differonl nationalities, are strongly
united by many common interests,
both iu the mining and commercial
world, iiinl moreover by that bond of
"blood which is thicker than water."
which is so clearly defined in the two
great     Anglo-Saxon nations.    Tho
Spokesman-Review has established a
large .md well merited i iroulation iu
Nelson. Yesterday Tho Miner re-
reivi'd a copy of The Spokesman-Review Quarterly, nil elaborately printed
and illoslr-ted magazine, The press
matter is. as it should lie, devoted to
mining and a large portion of it deals
with Koiileiinv. Nelson is described as
tbo "banking, commercial and official
centre of Kootenay County." The illustrations are exceedingly good, aud
the publication as a whole is one of
excellent taste, which does great credit
to the publishers.

Lieut, Dan Godfrey's British
Band appeals to the critic and
general publio alike. Lient. Godfrey a
voids all clap trap display, and devotes
himself Ui the production of pure melody relying "U it" excellence and effect
to delight every ear. The famous
"William Toll" overture is played
wilh a brilliance and charm that has
never been heard from any band. An
opposite extreme, the new "Patrol
Maroh1' by Ivan Oryll. representing
the approach, the march past and the
disappearing int." the distance of a regiment, is remarkable iu its imitation
of marching feet. In encore numbers,
Sniisii marches and other popularjiieces
found following fast upon Wag-
Gouuoud, Mozart aud other selec-
; from the great masters As a
'England and America," the
nautical number arranged by Lieut.
Godfrey especially for this tour, introduces the natural popular airs ot both
countries, while describing the union
of the flrets. Here the ability of the
band is much that no meretricious outside effects, such as real cim iron are
necessary, for the drummers represent
to tin' life the boomiug salute of the
watshlpi or the crash of thunder.
The soloists are of rare calibre and
the cornetist F. Kettlewell, the flutist,
K. Redfern, are is-stly the first ih
Great Britain,while the drummer who
gives a solo in which he plays no less
than twelve different instalments i<
little short of a wonder! These fa-

Yet, he wandered thej earth, all forgot

And ne'er till iu Heaven, had   n home

The Spoknno Chronicle tjives the following particulars concerning the sale
of the Bosun anil Fidelity piines in
the Slocan :
The Fidelity has been sold to the
Northwest Miniug Syndicate, which
owns the Bosun, the deal hi ing an
amalgamation of the two, which will
be operated under oue management
and thus great depth gained on the
Bosun at slight expense. There are
large ore reserves known to exist in both n Qf"
properties, and future operations al-1 O
ready planned will enhance greatly the
valne of the group.
The Fidelity aud Bosun, with the
numerous other claims purchased during the summer by the syndicate as
adjuncts, embrace the major part of
tbis ground from here to tbe Harris
ranch, formiug a mineral holding un- ^ I
surpassed in the Slocan.
By the use of the Bosun workings
the vein on the Fidelity can be worked at a minimum expense, as the ore
from the former is placed on the wharf
ready for shipment for 90 cents a ton ,
utside the actual mining. 10n
No work is at present being done,
owing to the labor troubles, but Mr.
Sandiford has had many improvements effected on tho sufrace, so tbat
when operations are resumed they can
be carried on without hindrance. There
will be a large force of men employed,
and as the company runs no boarding
house, the employees will, as for- ,.
merly, find lo.lgnieut in New Denver. ,

Mr. Samuel Marshall   returned   yes- tho

dividually   and in   partnership   seven ^hat
claims on Wild Horse creek. Hie prop-3am-
erty is situated iu the immediate vicin-
it) of tbe Blackcock and Wilcox   properties.    In oompany with   Mr.   S.   S.

is well developed,    The Wilcox  is nowwith
under  bond   for       .150,000.     Among
other cWims in which Mr. Marshall is
interested   are  the Pandora, Lora and   for

A THIRD PARTY.
A fairly foil report of Mr. Joseph
Martin's Labor Day speeoh at Nanaimo
is published in The Vancouver Province One hardly knows what to make
of it. He leaves no doubt as to his
own position. If uo one else, he sayB,
is against the Government, he is.
Tbe Government has not the confidence
of tbe Legislature, and ought to resign. It must resign ns soon as tbe
Legislature meets, for theu it will be
defeated. And this will be followed
by a geueral election. On all these
points Mr. Martin makes himself ns
clear as there is any occasion for. His
opinions may be worth much or little,
bnt no one is left in doubt as to what
those opinions are. He Is against the
Government, says it is in a minority,
thinks it should resign, and believes
there will be a general election soon
after the Honse meets. So far all is
clear, bnt what is to happen after dissolution?
This is a qnestion that has evidently puzzled Mr. Martin himself, for
he touches on it, but shies quickly, as
if be did not know what to say. He
thinks Turnerisni is preferable to Cot.
tonism, but leaves it to be understood
that he does not want cither the one or
the other. There is a pasfiug reference
to division on Dominion party lines,
but without effort to make anything of
it. What is left? Reading between
the lines, one sees a deeply calculated
determination to raise up a third party
to rtrowd in between the other two���a
labor party, of which Mr. Martin is
to be the leader. All tbrongh his speech
be makes bids foi labor support. He
begins it with a bid of that kind. It
is iii reference to the champerty case,
which he explains and defends as an
agreement to "help the poor against the
rich. " He is on the side nf the poor as
n-tainst tbe rich, of labor as against
capital, of the masses as against the
classes. Little touches here nnd tbere
throughout the speech all tend to give
this impression, as was doubtless intended.
Here is the demagogue, whose oharaoter looms up largest in the composition of Mr. Joseph Martin, and always
did. The man cannot help it. His
natural mind was neither broad nor
generous, and his training never gave
a fair chance to its development. Tur-
rierism may be a very bad thing We
bave not been able to discover what it
is or means, but we are willing for the
present purpose to admit that it is not
desirable to revive it. From Mr. Martin's description,there can be no doubt
that Cottonism is very bad indeed.
But bad and all as they are, we think
it well to warn all wlm may feel themselves eou.erned thut either one of
them is vastly to be preferred to
Martinism. As we do not know what
Turiierisin is, we do not kuow whut
harm it has done. From Mr. Martin
we gather that Cottonism is a quality
that delights to rule, nnd that in in
desire to have its own way it will not
stop at falsifying a publio record. Better suoh evils as these than the Intro-
dud ion of a spirit that would never
rest until it bad stirred up strife
���mo Ig the people, having one class
righting with another, selling neigh
bor against ucigbhur, and so disturb
ing the very basis of society that busi
ness would become paralysed, Thai is
the one thing British Columbia cannot
afford. We may stand a Government
in a minority and a Lieutenant-Governor who looks on with a smile, but the
demngogism of Mr. Joseph Martin
would be too serious a matter for a
Province thai is just entering nn the
first stages of its developuinnt. We
want harmony, not discord; confidence, not distrust ; union, not division. To avert this evil that is threatened, better a hundred times that
Torneriam and Cottonism should unite
to form one party.
Iu The Vancouver World editorial
mention is made of a rumor that Mr.
RoberHon, member fur Oowicban,
will resign in favor ol young Sir. Mclnnes, who is dropping nut nf Dominion politics becatase of dtssBtiiifaction
with the Liberal party, and is desirous
of takiug a baud, m foot', in the Provincial scrimmage. Tbe World adds
that un oria need be surprised should
tbe shuttle be made Is this a sequel tn
the other rumor that ih,- young man's
father, wbo is also Lieutenant-Governor, is intriguing for the political advancement of bis family, the present
extraordinary situation affording us
favorable an opportunity as the paternal
heart could desire?
Mr. Cotton's paper is not pleased
with the methods of the Opposition
papers of the Coast It accuses them
of makiDg personal attacks on public
men,which it thinks is very bad form,
indeed, and much to be d ipreoated,
It has doubtless most prominently in
its mind's eye the "attack' " on Mr.
Cotton himself, which consists of a
fair and moderate restatement of a
charge made by Mr. Jns��ph Martin
while Attorney-General, submitted
in writing to tbe Premier, to the effect
that Mr. Cotton bad tampered with
the minutes of the Executive Council
and given tneui a meaning they were
notj intended to have. Perhaps it is
natural Mr. Ootton's paper should see
something wrong in this, hut no other
paper or person very well can And
instead of complaining abont it, Mr.
Cotton's paper would be much better
employed in persuading Mr. Cotton to
explain the charge away���provided.
tbat is, such an extremely convenient disposition of it can be made.
One paper having said lhat a.million
dollars hud been lost through the closing down of the Slocan mines, an.ithcr
says, not so; the ore is still in the
mines aud therefore cannot be lost, in
this reply we get B glimpse of stubs,
niaiisbip and knowledge uf economics
that is positively blinding in its brilliancy. Why all this bother and exoite'
nient over mines and mining and
eight-hour days anrij companies and
syndicates and capitul? It is all a
waste of temper and energy. We uro
rich without it. The ore is in the
mines; what more con we wunt ? To
dig it out and smelt il makes it no
moie valuuble,   nor adds to the wealth
THE DEWEY CRAZE.
It is Now Breaking Out   in   its   Most
Malignant aud Expensive Form.
New York, Sept. 8.���The National
Sculpture Society today submitted
plans to Commissioner Brady, of the
building department, for the erection
at Broadway and Fifth avenue of the
Dewey arch and oolonade, Architect
Chas. R. Lambe gives the cost us $3(1, -
500. Sections of the columns which
form a part of the Dewey arch were
pnt in place this morning and one of
the colonades is half up. The top of
the arch will be in place iu n few days.
The figures of the Admiral's arch are
now practically completed and tbe
first of tbem will he ta.nii up to the
arch Monday. They average about la
feet in height and weigh approximately 7C0 pounds. Frank W. Sanger,
of the music committee, had a conference today with President Weinacbt,
of the Arion Society and President
Mittendorff, of the Leidcrkrunz Society, it was decided that a united
chorus of 260 voices from the two organizations shall go in the float
"Peace'- and accompany the Olvmpia
up the harbor aud sing hymns and.
songs ot welcome. General Roe has
received applications for places in the
land parade from a brigade of New
Jersey militia from 1,500 to 2,000
strong. From Connecticut he has
learned of 1,000 soldiers coming mid
Col. Stein, of West Point has announced his intention of marching in the
parade at the beBd of 800 West Point
cadets, The indications are that rhe
visiting troops will exceed 10,000 in
number.
THE SPOKESMAN-REVIEW.
Nelson cannot fail lo take a kindly
interest in anght that emanates from
Spokane, for tbe two cities, though of
iii tie run nationalities, are strongly
united by many common interests,
both in the mining and commercial
world, aiirl moreover by that bond of

l.ike an organ in its beautiful ep-
with all the variety and soft-
m nrohesrt- in its more musical numbers, with the vigor of a mill-
tury baud in its marches and popular
effects, Lieut. Dan Godfrey's British
Guards Band sppeals to the oritic and
general publio alike. Lieut. Godfrey a
voids all clap trap display, and devotes
himself to the production of pure melody relying on its excellence and effeot
to delight every ear. The famous
"William Tell" overture is played
with a brilliance and charm that has
never been heard from any band. An
opposite extreme, the new "Patrol
March" by Ivan Oryll. representing
the approach, the march past and tbe
disappearing into the distance of a regiment, is remarkable in its imitation
of inarching feet. In encore numbers,
Sotisa marches and other popular'pioces
nre found following fast upon.Yiag-
niir, Gouuoud, Mozart aud other selections from the great masters As a
finale, "England and America," the
nautical number arranged by Lieut, j
Godfrey especially for this tour, introduces the natural popular airs ot both
countries, while describing the union
of the fl( ets. Hero the ability of the
bund is much that no meretricious outside effects, such as real cunnon are
necessary, for the drummers represent
to the life the booming salute of the
waisltlpi or the crash of thunder.
The soloists are of rare calibre and
the coruetist V, Kettlewell, the flutist.
E, Redfern, are e.i>lly the first in
Great Britain,while the drummer who
gives a solo in yvhieh he plays no less
than twelve cilferent instalments i*
little short of a wotyler; These famous soldier-musicians and" their- renowned lender will he heard in tho
Skating rink this afternoon and
cTening. They nrrive from Rosslnnd at
11 o'clo.'k and at !l o'clock the first
number of the afternoon's progrumme
will he plated. The evening concert
coinciniices sharp nt 8 o'clrck, as it
mtist be finished in time to allow the
haul to tako the lato boat for East
Kootenay tonight The pale of the scats
for the two concerts has been very
large, especially for tie" evening.
There will be, however, -.aevernl hun-
dird unreserved seats aud the "general admission" accommodation will
be ample. There will be a large 'attendance from lhe Slocan towns. The
Bteamer International w ill nm a special excursion from Kaslo and will re-
ttlrll after tbe evening concert. The
band played in Rossland, Thursday
anil Friday evenings and Friday after-
mum nnd reports from there state that
the large audieuces were completely
captivate'.' The visit of such a musical organization to Nelson is an epoch
in the City's history, and is worthy
ni being marked by large audiences.

The Spokiuio Chronicle gives the foi-1
lowing particulars  concerning the sale
of tlin Bosun   ami   Fidelity .piiue*  in I
tlie Slocan :
The Fidelity bus been sold to the
Northwest Mining Syndicate, whirl)
owns ihe Bosun, the deal being an
amalgamation of the two, whioh will
be operated under one management
and thus greal depth gained on the
Bosun at slight expense, There are
large ore reserves known to esjst in both
properties, and future operations already planned will enhance greatly the
value of the group.
The Fidelity and Bosun, with tbe
numerous other claims purchased dnring the summer by lhe syndicate as
adjuncts, embrace lhe major part of
tbis ground from here to tbe Harris
ranch, forming a mineral holding nu- ^ j
surpassed in the Slocan.
By the use of the Bosun workings
the vein on the Fidelity can be worked at a minimum expense, uh the ore
from tbe former is placed ou the wharf
ready for shipment for 90 cents a ton ,
ntside the actual mining. -Ofi
No work is at present being done,
owing to the labor troubles, but Mr.
Sandiford has had many improvements effected on the sufrace, so tbat
when operations are resumed they can
be carried on without hindrance. There
will be a large force of men employed,
and as the company runs no boarding
house, the employees will, as for- ..
merly, find lo.gment in New Denver. ,

Mr. Samuel Marshall   returned   yes- tho

dividnally   and iu   partnership   seven 'ha'
claims on Wild Horse creek. His prop-;aru-

is well developed.    The Wilcox  is nowtr/ith
under  bond   for      1)60,000.     Among
other claims in which Mr. Marshall is
interested   are   the Pandora, Lorn and   for
Smuggler.    Mr. Marshall and his part-..
ners having  pushed development work,,    =
this season are   highly   gratified   overfWBt
the results of their labor, as all of theirputo
claims have improved greatly from the,omi_

which is fast   crystulizing into a   cer-l  . s

A THIRD PAKTY.
A fairly full report of Mr. Joseph
Martin's Labor Day speech at Nanaimo
is published in The Vancouver Province One hardly knowH what to make
of it. He leaves no doubt as to his
own position. If uo one else, he says,
is iiLrauisi the Government, he is.
The Government has not the confidence
of the Legislature, and onRlit to resign. It must resign as soon as the
Legislature meets, for then it will lie
defeated. And this will be followed
by a general election. On all these
points Mr. Martin makes himself as
clear as there is any occasion for. His
opinions may be worth muehor little,
but no one is left in doubt as to what
those opinions are. He Is against the
Government, says it is in a minority,
thinks it should resign, and believes
there will bo a general election soon
after the House meets. So far all is
dear, but what is to happen after dissolution?
This is a question that has evidently puzzled Mr. Martin himself, for
he touches ou it, but shies quickly, as
if he did not know what to say. He
thinks Turnerisni is preforable to Cot.
tonism, but leaves it to be understood
that he does hot want either the one or
the other. There is a paspiug reference
to division on Dominion party lines,
but without effort to make anything of
it. What is left? Reading between
the lines, one sees a deeply calculated
determination to raise up a third party
to crowd in between the other two���a
labor partv, of which Mr. Martin is
to be tho leader. All through his speech
he makes bids for labor support. He
begins it with a bid of thai kind. It
is in reference to the champerty case,
which he explains and defends as an
agreement to "help the poor against the
rich." He is on the side of the poor as
HOjainst the rich, of labor as against
capital, of the masses as .against the
classes. Little touches here and there
throughout the speeoh all tend to give
this improssion, as was doubtless intended.
Here is the demagogue,   whose character looms up largest   in the composition of Mr. Josoph Martin, and always
diil.    The  man   cannot   help  it.    His
natural   mind   was neither broad   nor
generous, imi his training  never gave
a fair chance to its development.   Tur-
nerisrn may be a very bad   thing    We
bave not been able to discover what it
is or means, but we are willing for the
present purpose to admit that it is not
desirable to revive it.    From Mr. Martin's description,there can be no doubt.
that Cottonism   is   very   bad   indeed.
But bad aud all as they are, we  think
it well to warn all who may feel themselves   concerned   that  either   one  of
them   is  vastly   to  be   preferred    to
Martinisin.    As wo do not know what
Turnerisni is,   we do not   kuow   what
barm it has   done.    From  Mr. Martin
we gather that   Cottonism is a quality
that delights to   rule,   and that in  iu
desire to have its own way it will  not
stop at falsifying it pnblio record.  Bet
ter suoh evils as these  than tbe introduction of  a  spirit that would   never
rest   until   it   had   stirred   up   strife
brnoig   the   people, having   one   class
righting with   another, setting neighbor against neighbor, and   so   disturbing the very basis of society that busi
ness would become paralysed.    That is
tbe one thing British Columbia caunot
afford.    We   may   stand a Government
in a minority and a Lieutenant-Governor who looks on with a smile, but the
demagogism   of    Mr.   Joseph   Martin
would be too serious   a   matter  for  a
Provinoe tbat is just   entering on   the
first  stages of   its development.   We
want   harmony,   not  discord;    confidence, not distrust;  union, not   division.    To  avert this evil that is threatened,   better   a   hundred   times   that
Turnerism and Cottonism should unite
to form one party.
In Tbe Vancouver World editorial
mention is made of a rumor that Mr.
Robert ion, member for Cowichan,
will resign in favor of young Mr. Mutinies, who is dropping nut of Dominion politics beo-Ose of dissati-faction
with the Liberal party, nnd is desirous
of taking a hand, in loot, in the Pro
(viiicinl scrimmage. The World adds
that no onViieed be surprised Bhould
the shuttle be made Is this a sequel to
the other rumor that lhe youii- mail's
father, who is also Lieu tenant Governor, is intriguing fm the political advancement of bis family, the present
extraordinary situation affording as
favorable an opportunity as the paternal
heart could desire?
THK SPOKESMAN-REVIEW.
Nelson cannot fail to take a kindly
interest in an:.'lit that emanates from
Spokane, for the two cities, though of
different nationalities, are strongly
united by many common interests,
hoi li in the mining and commercial
world, and moreover by that bond of
"blood which is thicker than water.''
which is so clearly defined in the two
great Anglo-Saxon nations! Tho
Spokesman-Review bus established a
larirr .mil well merited circulation ill
Nelson. Yesterday Thn Miner received a copy of The Spokesman-Re-
jview Quarterly, an elaborately printed
and illustrated magazine. The niess
niiiiter la, as it should be, devoted to
milling and a large portion of it deals
with Kootenay. Nelsou is described as
the "banking, commercial and ollicial
centre of Kootenay County." The illustrations ure exceedingly good, and
the publication as a whole is one of
excellent taste, which does great credit
to the publishers.
Mr. Cotton's paper is not pleased
with the methods of the Opposition
papers of the Coast It accuses them
of making personal attacks on public
men,which it thinks is very bad form,
indeed, and much tu be d ipreoated,
It has doubtless most prominently in
its mind's eye the "attack"' on Mr.
Cotton himself, which consists of a
fair and moderate restatement of a
charge made by Mr. Joseph Martin
while Attorney-General, submitted
in writing to the Premier, to the effect
that Mr. Cotton bad tampered with
the minutes of the Executive Council
and given tneni a meaning they were
nol_ intended to have. Perhaps it is
natural Mr. Cotton's paper should see
something wrong in this, but uo other
paper ur person very well can And
instead of complaining abont it, Mr.
Cotton's paper would be much better
employed in persuading Mr. Cotton to
explain the charge away���provided
that is, such au extremely conveil
ient disposition of it can be made.

THE DEvVEY CRAZE.
It is Now Breaking Out   in   its   Most
Malignant and Expeusive Form.
New York, Sept. 8.-The National
Sculpture Society today submitted
plans to Commissioner Brady, of the
building department, for the erection
at Broadway and Fifth avenue of lhe
Dewey arch and colonade, Architect
Ohas. R. Lambe gives the cost as $20, -
500. Sections of the columns which
form a part of the Dewey uroh were
put in place this morning and one of
the colonades is half up. The top of
the arch will be in place iu a few days.
The figures of the Admiral's arch are
now practically completed and the
first of them will be taken up to the
arch Monday. They average about 12
feet in height and weigh appioxi-
mately 7C0 pounds. Frank W. Sanger,
of the music committee, had a conference today with President Weiuacht,
of the Arion Society and President
Mittendorff, of the Leiderkrair/, Society, it waa decided that a united
chorus of 260 voices from the two organizations shall go in the float
"Peace" and aooompimy tl.e Olympia
up the harbor aud sing hymns and
songs ot welcome. General Roe has
received applications for places in the
land parade from a brigade of New
Jersey militia from 1,600 to 2,000
strong. From Connecticut he has
learned of 1,000 soldiers coming mid
Ool. Stein, of West Point has announced his intention of marching in the
parade at tho head of 300 Wost Point
cadets. Tha indications are that the
visiting troops will exceed 10,000 in
number.
PROSPECTING EXTRAORDINARY.
The Hossland Miner is responsible
for the following account. Apparently the age of miracles is not yet
dead:
"Mr. Littlejohu says a lady reoently
visited Forty-Nine Mile creek, wbo
seemed to be able with the aid of a little mechanical device which she carried in her bands to locate ledges. The
machine is the indention of her father,
She holds it firmly grasped iu both
hands and when she comes where there
is a ledge a poition of the mechanism
swings two und fro. She was taken to
places where it was known there was
a ledge although there was no appearance of it n tho surface, and the device
would always commence to vibrate
when she stood over a ledge. Mr. Lif-
tlcjohii says that the ability; of this
wonderful woman to firm ledges was
tested in a dozen different ways and
never ouoe was she at fault. JSo
charge is made for the woik which shi
dees.''
One paper having said that a million
dollars had been lost through the closing down of the Slocan mines, aiutber
says, not so; tho ore is still iu the
mines aud therefore cannot be lost. In
tbis reply we get a glimpse of states-
nianship and knowledge uf economics
that is positively blinding in its brilliancy. Why all tbis bother und excitement over mines and mining and
eight-hour days anrij companies und
syndicates and capital? It is all a
waste of temper and energy. We are
rioh without it. Tbe ore is in the
mines; what more can we want ? To
dig it out and smelt if makes it no
mole valuable,   nor adds to the wealth
WHEELMEN,   ATTENTION !
A number of wheelmen met lust
evening at the City Hall, aud after
talking over cycling matters to some
extent, it was agreed by those present
to issue a call for a general meeting of
all the wheelmen in tbo City. Therefore, it is urgently requested that all
interested in cycling matters meet at
the City Hall on next Frriday evening
at 8 p. m., for the purpose of organizing a wheeling club to affiliate with
the Canadian Wheolmeu's Association.
The cyole track is in a deplorable
condition and immediate measures
should be taken to repair the same
and for its better protection during the
winter.

opposite extreme,   the   new    "Patrol

the approach, the march pust  and   the

of marching  feet.   In encore numbers,

The Spokauo Chronicle Hives the following particulars concerning the sale
of tlio Bosun anil Fidelity piines in
the Slocan :
The Fidelity has heen sold to the
Northwest Mining Syndicate, which
owns Hie Bosun, the ileal ruing an
amalgamation 'rf the two, which will
he operated under one management
and   thus   great   depth gained on   the
Bosun at   slight   expense.    There  are
large ore reserves known to osjst in both  Dreyfus had pretty nigh
to sec.    But thoy   were   good   lookers,
that was all.    The whole lot   ot   them
didn't have enough   brains  lo   bait  u
mousetrap.    Some   of tliem were reading the morning Miner and Iho others
were waitiug to read it   Oue man laid
hia paper d own   and very sedntely remarked that "he'd see" it   coinin'   all
the time. Them Boor fellers was about
to give England   a   liokin,'   an'   that
would probably raise   the price of lend
in British  Columbia so th ��� lend   miners could make a livin' easy.'    As true
I as  I am setting here lhat gang argued
tbat question for  fifteen minutes, until our porridge got  cold nnd our heads
got hot.    We were just settling to  eat
when somebody   from the oiliir side of
the table  from   me   said   he   'guessed

A'
properties, and future operations al- whole French ai my (great sensation)
ready planned will enhance greatly the by this time.' Everyone talked at once
value of the group. |hii(I the whole table was in an   uproar.
The Fidelity aud   Bosun,   with   the I (Trernenduous    agitation)-      I    don't
numerous other claims   purchased dm- j reuiemher liow that ended, but we lost j
ing the summer by   tho   syndicate  as  fifteen     minutes   mere.    I    was  just

tbis ground from here t
ranch, forming a mineral
surpassed in the Slocan.
By the nse of the Bosun workings
the vein on the Fidelity can bo worked at a minimum expeuse, as the ore
from the former is placed ou the wharf
ready for shipment for III) cents a ton
utside tho actual mining.
No work is at present being done,
owing to the labor troubles, but Mr.
Sandiford has bad many improvements effected on the sufrace, so that
when operations are resumed they can
be carried on without hindrance. There
will be a large force of men employed,
and as the company runs no boarding
house, the employees will, as formerly, find lo:lgiiieut in New   Denver.
Mr. Samuel Marshall   returned  yesterday from a trip to Ymir, where be
holds'valuable mining inerosts ou Wild
Horse creok.    Mr.  Marshall   owns  individually   and in   partnership  seven
claims on Wild Horse creek.  His properly is situated in the immediate vioin-
it/of the Blackcock and Wilcox  pro]
erties.   In company with  Mr.   S.   ti
Taylor, <^. C,   he   owns   tho  Taylor
claim,    adjoining   the   Wilcox,   which
is well developed.    Tbe Wilcox is now
under  bond   for      *16_,000.     Among
other ehiiu.s in which Mr. Marshall is
interested   are   the Pandora, horn and
Smuggler.   Mr. Marshall and his partners having  pushed development work
this season are   highly   gratified   over
the results of their labor, as all of their
claims have improved greatly from the
work done.and gives them a new hope,
which is last   crystalizii'g into a   certainty, and a firmer grip on the beveled edge of prosperity   which they  are
SO Strenuously striving to attain.    The
properties are gold, oopper propositions
all the   way   through.    Mr.   Marshall
slates thai   more work Ins  been  done
on mining claims in Ymir district this
season than in   the   past   three  years,
and that the developments   thus   made
have been uniformly good.    "The reason for   SO   much   work   haviug   benn
prosecuted  is  very   plain," says  Mr.
Marshall   "All  mining men  realize
that in this country   tbe   day of  wild
cats has passed.    As summer  sun di
pels the fag, so has   the clear vision r
the investor   in   miniug property, ii
duced the wild cat to fade away.    Tho
wild cut boomer's occupation has eluded him, and he  is  now selling  stocks
on the lung capacity of the noisy  and
irrepressible gentlemen (?) who repre
ssnt the  civilized  world in the  prize
ring.    Mining property must ho devel
npod and   opened   np in these days   to
secure purchasers.    Work must be done
on the claim before it can be  sold,  if
for nothing more than as an earnest of
good faith ou the   part  of the   owner,
if it is   not   done   un offer to sell will
not   even   bo     considered.     That   the
Ymir distriot will continue to improve
and muny tune*, doiilile  its present oro
product isi only a mutter of time. Thut
tlio quantities and  values are there is
ier longer a matter for proof,"

THE (JROSS-EYM)  MAN.
������������������������������������������������������������������������������
The   cross-eyed   man   was mud   Isi-C
night, us be sal, bumped up in a hug
emir  on   the   veranda   of  his  hotel
Every move suggested  Bpitefnlness, o
nn Impaired digestion,   Tbe mere toa
of his head   was   a challenge and  Ins
straight eye  glared   as savagaly as
ragged piece   <>f   chilled   steel,   while!
the cross eyo was   simply an  exnggr
ated live coal.   For sometime be was
imprevious to questioning.    "1 say,
o'rl tuun; what's lhe matter.'" asked a
solicitioos friend,   "Anything  matter!
with your liver old  boy?"- simpered n
second; while a  third   solemnly  ana
unctuously inquired if be bad offended
his   wash   lady.    "May   the  dry   roi
light ou you fellows, for a lot   ol   gib
boring monkeys!   What do  you   know
about it?" Bashed the O.-E.man scornfully.    "Oh,   come,   nowi   tell us all
about it.    Do, now : that's a good   fel-
low I" In a chums.   Thus  abjured thu
man with the squint  Buffered  blnuelf
to be nullified and with a little petting
told bis tale of woe.
"When I got un this morning, I waa
alright. Never felt jollier in all my
life. I fairly beamed as I walked
down Baker streel to my breakfast, i
could have hugged thu first pretty girl
1 met I was in such a fine humor,
Well, I went into the dining room and
seated myself at  a lahle with  as  nice
remarked easy like that 'British Columbia was going to stop the importation of Chinese.' Pandemonium had
the floor. There waa talk of crooks,
drunken cooks and sober cooks, and
Chinese cooks and white cooks and
nigger cooks-1 ueliev- they said niggers���yes, I know they did. Ono imbecile said he was in favor ot the Chi-
nose, and I'm blamed if onr little girl
waiter didn't stand in with him. "
"Well," said the chorus. "Well,"
said squinty, 'that is all I remember
about breakfast, but yon ought to have
been at luucli. We were just started
to eating nicely when the big whiskered fellow looked up frim the table aud
said he 'didn't believo in burying in
the ground any more.' Said he believed in cremation, and so did his grandmother. Said the old lady always
wanted to be burned as she didn't
want worms ctawling al) over her iu-
sides after she was dead" "Well,"
chimed the chorus "Well," said
orooked-eye, "that was all of the
lnnch" And ho paused reflectively.
"What about dinner?" breathlessly
from the listeners
"Well, there was a lot of newspaper
men at the table and there wasn't an
intelligent remark made" One man
in the crowd silently and mysteriously
disappeared.
THE GOVERNOR  GENERAL.
London, -Sept 9.���Capt Lascnlles,
Aide-do-Camp to the Earl of Minto,
Governor-General of Canada, telegraphs to The Times as follows: "The
Governor-General has not received an
invitation to the Chicago festival.
His acceptance would depend on his
Oaundian engagements. He much appreciates the suggested compliment.
Sir Wilfrjd Laurier has not coiiinmni-
oated with the veterans in any   way.''
