STILL COMPLICATED
Arrests of Journalists in Johannesburg Cause Trouble.
CONTRADICTORY NEWS.
Oape Argun Denies That  Kruger  Haa
Agreed to Oo-ferenoe���Seoretary
Reitz States tbe Contrary.
The  olnet   officials  at Pretorin    con
aider war  unavoidable  and they have
prepared to   Htrike  before tbe  British
are ready.''
The correspondent of the Mail-Telegraph at Piotermaritzburg, the capital
of Natal,says things have reached such
11 puss that *ar is considered unavoidable and the impression in that the
crash will come within a few days.
Tho situation at Johannesburg ia
most anxious. The traders are unwilling to order large quantities of stores
through fear of being commandered.
Thus thousands will risk starvation
in the event of war when the railways
will he cut.
Pretoria, Sept. 4.���In oouneotion
willi tho arrest of Mr. Pukeman,editor
of tbe Transvaal Leader, and the
threatened arrest of other Uitlanders,
the state attorney denies that instructions were ever issued at Pretoria for
these arrests or that any political ar-
losts were contemplated bnt that warrants wow issued at Johannesburg
without owsulting tho state attorney.
Tbis announcement tends to quiet the
publio mind and  to arrest the exodus.
Mr. Smuts, the attorney general, expressed regret that such unfounded
statements should have caused the do-
nurture of several prominent Rand
gentlemen and specially trusts that his
assurances will be accepted and thut
th<y need not havtf the slightest fear of
any such step being taken against
tlwm.
Johannesburg, Sept 1��� When Mr.
Pakouiau editor of the Transvaal Leader whb arraigned at the bar of the first
criminal Lnndroat today, the publio
proseoutor announced thut ou the instructions of the Transvaal State Attorney, Mr.Smuts, he would withdraw
tho oharge of high treason ugrtinst the
prisoner and enter a frosb charge of
contravening tho press laws by inciting to high treasoan. This offense is
practically the same but it is oue for
which a defendant may be released on
br.il. Mr. Burgher, solicitor for Mr.
Pukeman,said he understood the original ohargo had been withdrawn,owing
to the inability of the public prosecu-
tur to convict and he wanted to know
whether the charge would again be
changed He challenged the public
pro.ocntor to supply bim with the particulars of the new charge, asserting
that it was not right to detain his client 24 hours in jail. The publio pros-
tcutor described Mr. Bugher's speech
aa an ad misericordinn appeal. Mr.
Burger then declared that the affidavit
upon whioh the oharge against Mr.
Pakenman was based contained no particulars that would justify a charge of
treason. The publio prosecutor characterized tbis statement as an "absolute lie." The proceedings were tnen
adjourned until Sept.   15.
London Sept. 4.���The Johannesburg
correspondent ot tho Daily Mail, who
paints a gloomy and pitiable pioture
of tho condition of things there, says:
"It is almost a ease of wholesale exo-
tlns and panio. BosinesB is paralyzed,
ths price of food stuffs are rapidly
rising, half the houses are empty and
the others aro tenanted hy people who
do not pay rent, tho landlords buing
��lad to have them as occupants in order to insure some sort of protection
to property. The tension has reached
the snapping point. Bankruptcy and
starvation are staring people in tho
face Anothor fortnight of susponse
will result in a complote commercial
collapse. The banks are thronged
with people anxious to withdraw their
gold and the railways are besieged by
'hose who wilh to get away. Rumor
fixes the number of warrants issued at
147,including the representatives of all
the London daily newspapers. Mr.
Monoypenny, editor of the Star, it is
reported, haB evaded the detectives sent
to arrest him acd has succeeded in
orosBin* the border. It is believed that
the mediation of Mr. Fischer, the representative of the Orange Free State,
has failed.
London, Sept. 4, -The Morning Post
Publishes the following from its spec-
inl correspondent at Oastlerio,   Natal:
"I left Johannesburg on ascertaining
that it was the intention of the Gov-
erutnent to arrest everyone who had
taken a loading part in advocating tbo
Claims of the Uitlanders. It wns an
exciting journey. Boer policemen
twice boarded the train. I saw trucks
loaded with commissariat stores and
ammunition and ready to start at every
station. The Boers declare their intention soon to rush the Natal  border.
Capetown, Sept. 4���The news received from Pretoria toaay shows the situation in clearer light. It appears that
the Transvaal's reply which has han:i-
ed on Saturday to the British diplomatic agent at Pretorin, Mr. Oonyogham
Greene, was only to Mr. Chamberlain's proposal respecting a conference
at Capetown and that another reply
will he made tomorrow to Mr. Chamberlain's original proposal of a joint
inquiry into the franchise bill. This
method of splitting the negotiationBjoy
the Transvaal is unfavorably commented upou here Tho Cape Argos officially deuies that the Government of the
South Arfican Republic haa agreed to
a conference at Capetown, and declares that the explanation offered by
the Transvaal attorney general, Mr.
Smuts, of the -nests is unsatisactory
and that the mistake is one that calls
for immediate elucidation.
Pretoria, Sept. 4.���In the course of
an interview today, State Secretary
Ueitz said the Transvaal Government
is waiting until Saturday's dispatch
has reached tbe Imperial authorities
before making its contents public.
Without, however, entering into details, he oould say that in his judgment the proposals of the Government
offered Mr. Chamberlain an opportunity of coming to a settlement regarding
1I10 franchise aud other outstanding
rioestions Ho oould uIbo say that tne
Transvaal wonld tako a part in the
suggested conference and was now
waiting tbe Imperial Government's
reply in order to arrange the details as
to a place of meeting.
London, Sept. 4.���The Seoretary of
State for tho Colonies, Mr. Joseph
Cnmberlaiu,arrived in London this afternoon aud at once proceeded to the
Foreign Office. He will remain here
until the end of the orisis. The War
Office refused to confirm the rumor
that a proclamation will be issued,
calling out the   reserves.
Loudon, Sept. 4.���Amid the crowd
of conflicting dispatcher! froui South
Africa regarding tbe Transvaal situation, it is still impossible to say
exactly what bas happened. It seems
evident, however, that President
Kruger has withdrawn the five year
Trauchise which was dependent on
Great Britain's acceptance of impossible conditions regarding suzerainty
nnd had made some sort of temporar-
izing oounter-snggestions regarding a
conference. The Standard and Digger's News gives what purports to be
a report ot tbe secret session of the
Volksraad on Saturday. Aooording to
this account, the Volksraad not only
determined to reject the five year proposal, but also stoutly opposed President Kruger visiting Capetown, and
resolved to make a Btand for the abrogation of England's claim to suzerainty. The Boer organ then asserts,
"The Government, both the Hands
und tbe Burghers, feel that they have
offered all they intend to offer, nnd
nro now resolved to Btand or fall by
this decision." Beforo statements of
this kind, coupled with the arrests
at Johannesburg, speak louder than
the wriggling pretenoes of Pretoria
about in-living nt an understanding.
Certainly Mr. Moneypenuy and the
other refuges will not be in a hurry to
return to Johannesburg on account of
the fine assurances of the state attorney.
SEAMEN'S UNION STRIKE.
Was Deolared Yesterday But Not Yot
Completely Ordered.
London, Bept. 4.���Tbe general strike
of seamen and steamer firemen, whiob,
has been threatened frr some time
was declared today. The ship owners
refused to accept the invitation of tho
seamen's and firemen's union for a
oonferenoo in regard to fixing tbe rate
of wages for firemen and sailors on
steamers at ��6, and sailors on sailing
vessels at ��4 monthly, a slight advanoe
in the average wages now paid at tbe
various British ports. Reports as to
tlie effect and thoroughness of the movement have not yet beeu received except
from South Shields where it ia stated
that two thouBiid men have gone ont.
Many meetings havo heen held in tbe
vioinity of tha London docks, the
speakers expressing the determiiiition
of tho men to remain iho until their
demands have been granted hut traffic
at this port has not yet been   affected.
It is not likely that the strike will
be completely ordered for several days
and until then its extent will not be
known or its results keenly felt. The
manifesto of tho Union ordering the
strike includes all the ports in the
United Kingdom.
IN MEMORY OF FARNELIi/
FRENCH WAR BISTER
OPPOSED TO SECRECI
Today's Session Should Be in
Full Light oi Day.
ESTERHAZY'S     VIEWS,
Considers Handwriting Experts' Evidenoe
Was Nonsense���Says Government
Desires Dreyfus' Acquittal.
Dublin, Sopt. 4.���The corporation has
granted a site near the Rotunda in Upper Sackville for tbe proposed statue
of Charles Stewart Parnell. J
Rennes, Sept. 4���As the end of the
Dreyfus court martial trial comes
within sight the French Government
is beginning to display a foar that the
verdict may lead to troubles and orders have just been received by two
regiments of infantry and one cavalrv
regiment alreidy within hail of Rennes
to hold themselves in readiness to
march into town with the first sign of
disorder, to occupy all strategical
points aud to repress manifestations
in their inception. The local anti-
Drey fusard organs, by their anti-foreign articles, have already signalled
rat foreigners as enemies of the country and there is little doubt tbat foreign journalists will be the first vio-
timB of tbe violence of he mob, not bo
much Anglo-Saxon us Austrian German and Russian Jews -who form a
majority of the press representation of
their respective conn ies. Today's
session opened rather badly for Dreyfus as a surprise was sprung upon the
defense in the advent of au Austrian
political refugee, Eugene Cernuscbi,
who came out with a flat footed denunciation of the accused which even
though it may eventually be proved a
pure tale, is bound for the moment
to exercise a magnetic influence on
tho people who have not soeu Cornosohi
aud are thus unable to form a personal
opinion of the man who launohed
these direct acusations against Dreyfus.
Oernuscb��i' testimony, whioh was in
the form of a letter to the president of
the oourt martial, was most unequivocal. He olaimed that, on three distinct oocasion, twice in France and
once at Geneva, he wns told by a high
placod foreign officer that Dreyfus had
communicated treasonable documents
to a foreign power. Iu the third
oase, he said, the officer showed him
documents emanating from Dreyfus
and that officer left France hurriedly,
two days prior to the arrest of Dreyfus. The allusion was evidently to Col.
Schwarzkoppen, whose movements
were coincident with those described
as movements of the officer of the
Cernnschi deposition. This introduction of a foreigner as a witness for
the prosecution gave Maitre Labori
an opening to submit the most important request be has made throughout
the trial, a request which, if granted
by Col. Jouast, though this is extremely doubtful, would certainly
have momentuous consequences.
Maitre Labori announced his intention, in view of the step takon by the
prosecution in calling in foreign cvi
douce, to ask that inquiry should be
made through tho legolar diplomatic
channels as to whether the documents
mentioned in the bordereau were notu-
allv communicated and if so,by whom.
This involves an application to the
GoTiuau Government which the oourt
martial is scarcely likely lo approve.
In any case, the application means
the lengthening of the trial [for several
weeks. The introduction of Cernnschi und the other developments of
the day it is generally predicted
imply another, week's sitting at tho
least. CernuBohi will bo beard tomorrow behind closed doors. At the same
time there will probably be an examination of the secret Jdoisierf to which
Capt. Cuignet referred this morning
and which Maitro Labori immediately
asked to huve produced in court. The
dossier consists of 12 or 14 documents
and it is diffloult to boo why if they
had any vote, the etat major bus not
had them produoed earlier.
M. Painelevo, the distinguished
mathomatican, onrmrd Geo. Gonze, ou
the lattoi's falsified ���"���ersiou of M.
I Inn hoard's remarks concerning
Capt. Dreyfus and the manner in
whioh Gonze squirmed and his woe
begone appearance almost arouHed pity
for him. Gen. Roget uIbo appeared to
begin to feel at last the cruel strokes
the etat majors have been reoeiving
of late. He showed naught of his
crnel brazen front today. On the contrary Ins face was quite livid when he
left after a very poor display and he
quitted the court room as soon as the
proceedings were over, excusing himself to his brother generals on the
ground of feeling unwell. The session ended with an exposure by Hen-
j on, chief of the Paris detectives, of
the disgraceful taotics of the etat major iu suppressing hiB report iu favor
of Capt. Dreyfns and inserting a document more or less unfavnrablo to him.
BOARDS OF TRADE
ON EIGHT EOOR LAW
Memorial Presented to the
Government at Victoria.
A STRONG OASE MADE.
Suspension of ihe". Fruvisi ns of the Luw
-Bked For Until tha Uext 8itting
of the Legislalure,
(Continued on Fonrtb Page.)
At the recent meeting of. the Boards
of Trade of Eastern British Columbia
atKosslaud n special committee consisting of .1. S C. Eraser, hon. T.
Mayne Daly aud J. Roderick Robertson, was appoiiuod to propare a memorial on ihe Eight-Hour law and to
forward it to the Provincial Government. The memorial drawn up aud
sent to Victoria was U9 follows:
To the Hon. J. Fred  Hume,   Minister
of Mines, Vic'orin, B. 0.
Sir,���The memorial of the Associated Boards of Trade of Eastern British Columbia, in convention assembled shewcth as follows:
1. That this association is composed
of delegates duly accredited from each
of the Boards of Trade formed in the
Districts of East and West Kootenay
and portions of tbe District of Yale,
representing the mining sections of
Eastern British Columbia.
3. That it was with regret that youi
memorialists learned of the enaotment
of clause 4 of bill No. 80, being, "An
Act to Amend tho Inspection of Metalliferous Mines Act," by whioh section
13 of chapter 1SI4, It. S. B. 0., is repealed and the following substituted
there'or:
"18. No person shall be employed
underground iu any metalliferous mine
for more than eight hours in every
twenty-four hours."
Aud your memorialists respectfully
request tbat you will not enforce the
above provisions nor caute the same to
be enforced. Our reasons for making
this request are, amongst others, as
follows:
1, lt is submitted that legislation of such importnace and vitally
affecting such large vested interests
should not have beeu passed by the
Legislature without au opportunity
having been given to those interested
of expressing their opinion upon the
subjeot.
2. That the publio generally were
uot aware that sucb legislation was beiug sought, aud the Ihvt intimation
that was bad of such legislation being
paBsed was through the columns of
the newspapers.
8. That in obedience to the notioe
and demand of the Inspector of Mines
in that behalf, the superintendents ot
mines have complied with requirements of the law complained against,
but suoh compliance wbb not made vol-
untarily.but only with a deBire to obey
the lnw, aud tho aoquiesoence therein
must not be taken as evidence of their
satisfaction with the same.
4. From the enquiries they have
made the members of this Association
are satisfied that this change in the
law was not asked for by the miners,
aud the enactment was as great a surprise to the miners as it. was to tbe
mine owner. No facts having teen
adduced to shew that the miners
working in tbe metalliferous mines in
the Provinoe of British Columbia complained against or suffered under tbe
system in vogue prior to the passing
of the aot, and in the absence of any
petition or evidence before the Legislature that suoh a sweeping change in
the law wnB asked for by those who ore
most interested in the change, namely,
the miners, it is submitted that the
mine owners are fully justified in asking you not to enforce this law. -
5. Tbo experience during the p-st
few months in the working of the eight
hour law system in tho mines in tht
Rossland and other camps olearly demonstrates that men employed underground in motallifeorus .nines cannot
do as mnch work in a working day of
eight hours as tbey can in one of ten
hours, consequently, the cost of working per foot is greater under the former than i nder the after system, aud
mine owners will not be able to bear
the inoreased burden thus entailed,
and a reduction of wages must follow.
0. Tbat tbo passing of this legislation has bad a very unsettling effect
on tbo market. Investors are timid
and capital which was seeking investment in the Province has been
withheld, awaiting the action of the
Governmi nt in the premises. That
nothing <or,Id have been more promising than tlio outlook for large investments nf I.imlish and Eastern (lanari-
iau capital in the Kootenays and Yale
at tin- beginning of the year 1809,
and, we regret to say, that the passing
of tlie legislation in question has ore-
ated s r much distrust in the minds of
the investing public that a material
change is noticeable.
8. Mine owners and others interested in milling in tbe Kootenays and
Yale have sn far had reason to congratulate themselves upou the pleasant
relationship that has existed between
the employer and  the employed,   and
it is fervently wished that nnibim-
will occur to disturb the harmony ��ud
peace heretofore existing. But, as
stated above, it will be impossible for
mine owners to continue to pay tbe
rate of wages for eight boms of laboi
that they have been paying for ten
hours ; Ihe necessary alternative will
he a reduction of wages, and upon
such reduction, speaking In the light
of experience, consequences Wrllc isnr-
that will grnatlv retard the prnpress nf
mining in the KooteuayR and Yale. If
tbe miners refuse to accept tuese reductions the alternative will be tin
closing down of the maj rity of the
mines.
It is needless to impress upon you,
sir, tbe disastrous effect such a state of
affairs will eni.il upon the people of
Kootenay and Yale, whose nil is bound
up in the progress and development of
the great mineral resources of these
districts. We, therefore, respectfully
submit that it will be in the best interest of all concerned that no stops be
taken to enforce the provisions of
olanse. 4 of bill No. 80, and that the
whole matter be left in abeyance until
the next session of the Legislature,
when both sides of the question can be
fully disoussed and laid before that
honorable body.
On behalf of the Associated Boards
of Trade of Eastern British Columbia,
we are sir, yours obedientlv, (Signed i
J. H. 0. Eraser, President; H. VV. 0.

Tbis estimate treats tho East Lillooel

should believe  himself to te qualified.
LABOR DAY AT ROSSLAND.
Heavy Rains Interfered   With the Big
Celebration.
Rossland, Sopt. 4. ���(Special)���Low
hanging clouds aud incessant rain in
the morning put a damper on Ross-
land's Labor Day celebration whioh
commenced today. Tbere were a large
numbers of visitors in town, all the
miners coming down from Ihe mines
on the surrounding hills and each adjacent town sending its quota of visitors. But it rained and spoiled everything. Tbere were no decorations, no
baseball match, no Union procession,
no trades parade, ���''no nothing." Nelson's last Dominion Day celebration
was held up as a model for the Rossland committee to work on but it was
easily seen, and generally admitced by
fair minded Rossland people, that had
tho weather been sb fine as oould be
imagined tbe celebration could not
have been compared with the splendid
success that Nelson achieved. To
start with tho local committee had little more than half the money tbat wus
raised in Nelson aud there was by no
means the same general interest taken
in the day's Bpoit. Rivalry between
the two committees, those of the citizens and of the Unions, contributed to
this Btate of affairs ns each seemed desirous of being the "whole show."
Perhaps it was a good thiug it rained
���it provides an excellent exouse for
auy deficiency that might bo apparent.
As it rained all morning none of the
events on the programme were carried
out. But the clouds broke about two
o'clock and efforts wero marie to get
the ball rolliug. The hose reel raae
took place. It was a decidedly wet
test, both teams slipping in the greasy
mud. The Nelson boys could not hold
their feet at all and the Rossland team
proved easy winners. They might
have won anyway���but again the rain
provides a good excuse. It was not
a fair teat of speed. Two wheelmen
oontcsted in two bicycle races and each
won oue, thereby scouring the handsome prizes und any amount of mud.
The Nelson baseball team came up to
play on Sunday and Monday but neither game took place���all on account of
the rain. Tbe Nelson contingent,
whioh filled throe railway coaches, did
not have an evening train as the Rossland contingent had when Nelson celebrated, so had to leave for home in the
middle of the afternoon. A few more
events took plaoe before evening but
tbe bulk of the sportH were left over
till tomorrow when the hoiso races ond
drilling oontests take place.
ROYALISTS IN FRANCE
Paris, Bept. 4. ���The police today
saized a number of papers, prospectuses
and other documents at the offi.ies of
La Croix, which are tho headquarters
of assumption fathers, and mado a
similar seizure at the offices of Le
Nouvelliste, of Bordereaux, an organ
of Junesser Royaliste (Royalists).
An Attempted Burglary Is
Quickly Frustrated.
"ROLLED" BY HIS PALS.
But Said They  Took a Oheok for Safe
Custody and the Folioe Takes One
of Them for ?ame Purpose.
Austin J. Kelly, who was mixed up
with the Lewis and Burns affair in
Rossland was yesterday released from
the Provincial jail at Nelsou. Apparently his confinement had no salutary
effect on liim.for no sooner was he set at
liberty than he started to appropriate
what did not belong to him. He broke
into Mr. Pair's residence in Cedar
sireet, and was caught on the premises
by the owner. When he saw ha was
discovered he ran away through tho
bush and was seen heading for tho N.
& F. S. railway track. Mr. Purr had
some doubt in his mind as to whether
he could catch the fugitive, and, evm
shonld he succeed in doing so, whether
he could arrest bim on his own responsibility, so he decided to give information to the police.
As soon ns Chief of Police Jarvis was
informed of the occurrence he hurried to the railway track and mauagid
to secure the use of a velocopede ut the
suction house. He also borrowed a coat
and hat there so as to conceal his uniform and, taking with him a small boy
w ho had seen Kelly climbing ont of a
window in Mr. Parr's bouse, started
on the pursuit. He managed to overtake K"lly abont three miles from the
section house. Kelly, when he first saw
the velocopede, ran up the side of tbe
hill, but Jarvis passed on unconcernedly and Kelly, his suspicions dis-
irmed, returned again to the track.
Jaivis waited for him and theu ai*
rested him. Kelly was much surprised and considered himself insulted.
He desired to see Jarvis' warrant but
the handcuffs wero the only outwaid
and visible forms of warrant he was
shown. Jarvis, who is not accustomed
to working velocopedes, was fairly out
of breath and trembled when he adjusted the "bracelets" Kelly remarked pertinently on this so, in order to
keep cooler and reply in forcible manner, Jarvis made Kelly work the velocopede back again. The prisoner waB
highly indignant at tbe high handed
treatment he received and informed
Jarvis that he "had uo use for" the
barbarous customs of this country,
which are singularly oppressive to the
free and enlightened citizens of "God'a
Country.''
Somehow the Chief of Police doea
not seem to distress himself; on tin
cr Miliary, be appears to be rather pleated with his repartee.
The capture was a smart piece of
work aud is a feather in tbe bonnet ol
Chief Jarvis.
The police bud another matter to attend to yesterday. On Sunday evening
three meu had been haviug "a smile"
or two at the Grand Central Hotel and
one of tbe trio who bad "smiled"
once or twice too often, was a trifle
unstoudv on the verandah. His treacherous companions, instead of assisting
him to his residence, helped themselves to the contents of his pocket
which consisted of a five dollar bill
aud a cheque for $15,00. A servant
at the hotel, who witnessed the occurrence, reported the matter to Mr.
Simpson, the proprietor, who at onoe
sent the servant after the meu with
instructions to demand the return of
tbe money and cheque. Tbe servant
traced them to the Silver King hotel
where they were about to cash the
cheque stolen. When taxed with tha
offence they admitted that they had
relieved their companion of the cheque
but said they had done so in order to
tako care of it for him. They returned to thu Grand Central to explain the
matter to Mr. Simpson, who promptly
sent for the police. One of the twain
dcvincd Mr. Simpson's intentions and
decamped. The other, named Thomas
Cameron, was arrested, and though
not the man who actually took tbe
cheque, will be charged this morning
with complicity in the affair.

A PROVINCE WITH A BLACK EYE.
Now that the Trarsvaal troubles
are on, Mr. Lefroy, publisher of the
British Columbia Beview, thinks this
would bo "a splendid time for making
an effort to bring   British   capital  to
Canada for   mining   purposes.
This
was the opinion he expressed to The
Toronto Mail a few days ago. No
doubt it would be a good time, and
has been a good time for tbo many
months those troubles have been acute.
Ir was thought that this Proviuce
would take advantage of it, or, without any special effort, reap advantage
from it. British capital became shy
of the Transvaal some time ago, and
quite of its own accord looked approvingly iu our direction. West Aus-
triala is developing large mineral resources, and naturally attracting a
good deal of attention in London,
whenoe it has received iv>riM .to a

bia as a mining region began to spread,
and thero was every prospect of a rush
of capital to this Province at the beginning of the present season. We did
not require to mnke auy special effort
to attract it, although if we had done
so- we would have shown no more thau
ordinary enterprise aud prudence. We
were content to rest on suoh reputation as our mines were making for
themselves, and to leave that reputation to disoover itself as best it could.
Even this, however, was too much
for our rulers aud governors. If they
bad let well enough alone, many mining properties throughout the Kootenay would be the Boenes of activity
that are today as silent as a tomb.
That was the prospect at tho beginning of the season. It has been completely disappointed by the legislation
of last session. First there was discouragement in the law tbat wns passed to tie up the placer mines of the
Atlin region, and this wuh followed
by a law tbat seriously interfered
with every operating mine in South-
' ni British Columbia. Capital at once
'���ook alarm, and where there should
lave been millions for development we
i uve not received thousands. If our
legislators had exercised all their ingen-
i ity to devise means to a paralyse the
ininiiiu' industry of the Province, they
could not have heen more successful
than they were with their Eight-Hour
law. Only a few mines have been
sunt down entirely ; the great majority of them are still in operation; but
everywhere, whether the mines are
large or small, the industry has been
crippled. Instead of attraoting Brit
ish capital, wo have frightened it o .
For the protection of capital alread
invested mines have been operated, bui
under great disadvantages; no new
capital, howevor, has sought investment, and as a mining field British
Columbia presents itself in the aspect
Of a Province with a black eye. Tbe
deplorable thing about it is that the
black eye has been inflicted by ourselves.
year. Who shall say the subsidy was
not a good investment? Indeed, Sir
Richard rings the ohanges on this, nnd
demands to know if a ret urn of half
a million on a liability of eighty
tlionasnd is not good business, Concluding his illustration, ho exclaims:
"Why, sir, today the excise revenue
in Hossland and Nelson nloyc would
more than pay the whole interest on
tho capital that has been expended by
us in oontsructing the Crow'sNest railway. "
II might be pointed out Unit there
was an excise revenue in Rossland and
Nelson before there wns a Crow's Nest
railway ; hut it will not do to be too
hard on a politician who is wrestling
so painfully with his conscience, the
more especially on a politician who
has done the State some service. But
it is fair to remind him that on precisely the same lines could tho Conservatives of old defend their expenditures. We need not tako the Crow's
Nest; that is but a small affair after
all���a mere branch. Take the main
line itself. Sir Richard will remember how he and the other lenders of the
parry denounced the Conservatives of
those days for the millions they voted
the Canadian Pacific railway. Yet the
return on tho expenditure in increased
customs and excise nre much greater
in proportion than anything ho can
show from the ('row's Nest. And
from that time on there was not a Con
servativo expenditure which he did not
denounce with equal bitterness, although each oue of them was suscept
ible of as gool a defence as he makf s
for the Crow's Nest subsidy. If he
shall say that the increase in revenue
is not to be credited to the O. P. R.,
it can be replied with equal if not
greater reason that neither can the ex
cise duties of Rossland and Nelson be
credited to the Crow's Nest railway.
The truth is that Sir Richard is now
defending himself and the Government
on exactly the grounds which he refus
ed to acknowledge in the case of the
Conservatives. His defence of today
is his condemnation in tho past.
A   DEFENCE   THAT   CONDEMNS.
By his Toronto speeoh   Sir   Richard
Cartwright virtually  admits that  his
party is on the defensive.    Ho devoted
a large portion   of   it  in the endeavor
to justify the enormously largo expenditures of the past two years.   If he had
not been so conscious  tbat he and  his
colleagues   in   the   Government  wore
put where they arc under the   promise
of curtailiug instead of enlarging thorn
he would uot be so anxious iu the matter.    This   consciousness   is   nttended
with an   uncomfortable feeling, which
may be   taken   as   evidence   that  the
great financial authority of the Liberal
party   is    troubled     in   mind; a still
small voicn is  reminding him that the
praotioe of his  party   in   power is  as
different as can be from the precept of
his party iu Opposition.    All   tbe  expenditures, he maintains, are justified
by their pioductiveuess.    As   an illustration ho oites the Crow's  Nost oase.
We do not wish to convey the   impression that it is  tbe   only   case.    There
are a score of thom, and all   as  sound
as this.    The   calculation is very sim
pie.    The annnul charge on the capital
voted as subsidy to   the   Orow's  Nest
railway is not more than 180,000;  the
ri-venne from   customs and exoise   derived in  consequence  of  the development due to tho   building of this railway is at least   1500,000  or $000,000  a
Tho Rossland Miner has a kindly
word for tho new management of The
Rossland Record That is neighborly,
at least. The Record deserves the nice
things said of it, but it will none the
less appreciate the feeling that inspires
them. Our confreres of Rossland are
evidently not hoors.

Mr. Bolster was tirst called npou anil
he briefly explained Ihe object of his
visit to Nelson. This year, he snid
the exposition would be more of a
mineral show than anything else aud
be looked to the Kootenays to supply a
large amount of ore foi the elaborate
displays that would be nia.e.' Tbe
man in Charge of that department had
appointed committees in the different
districts to collect samples but he found
that, while the smaller places were
working energetically, the larger centres were doing practically nothing.
He hoped, however, that Nelsm wonld
swing into line and send an exhibit
that would do justice to the .nineral
wealth of the district. The railways
had agreed to carry all ore samples free,
ami when they tenoned Spokane they
would be looked after by tbe exposition
people so there would be no expense
attached to making a collection other
than procuring and boxing the samples. At the exposition every attention would be given to tho attractive
display of the ore from each cuinp und
any private collections loaned would
be safely returned to the owners. Mr.
Bolster theu went ou to speak of the
prospects for an international day,
October 10 or 11. on which things British would be brought prominently to
the front. The Canton band would
play "God Save tbe Queen," the imported contralto would sing, "Hearts
of Dak, "tbe clubs would he thrown
open and a generally good time given
to the cousins from this side of the
lino. An immense parndo and a grand
displav of fireworks were also among
the attractions promised. Of course,
the people from this sido would have
to attend to make this glorious day
assured and ho extended au invitaiton
to Nelson citizens.
The Mayor followed and said that he
saw no reason why there should not be
a large attendance from Nelson. Regarding the ore samples ho thought n
very good display could be sent from
here and he promised his hearty support to any movement inaugurated.
Mr. RobertBOU, president of the Board
ot Trade, thought tne idea of an international day a veiy happy oue and he
would like to sou tho invilntiou accepted The mayor personally accepted the invitation, but said he could
not bind the council Aid. Beer
thought that the best way to interest
the people here so they would attend
would ba to send a first class ore exhibit. Mr. Macdonuld said it was a fitting opportunity for Nelson to show
that it was not only a commercial but
also a mining centre. He suggested
the appointment of committees to arrange for the local end of the affair.
He thought a large number would at
tend from here.
The following motion, (Messrs.Proctor and Dnnoan) was thou put aud car-
tied.
That this mooting of oitizens of Nelson, nil being members of the Board of
Trade,expresses its pleasure at the proposition made hy Mr. H. Bolster and thnt
a committee be appointed to assist in
preparing a mineral exhibit for the
Spokane Exposition aud that the committee bo composed of Messrs. Gamble,
Bellamy, Kelly and Procter.
Messrs. Swunnell, Christie and Allen
were appointed a committee on finance and Ihe Muyor, Aid. Hoer,Messrs.
Robertson, Macdonald and Oapt Duncan were appointed a oommittee to
sen that the international day aspect of
Hie question was properly attended to.
" M, Bolster was so pleased with the
evidences of interest displayed hy the
i itmms of Nelson that he forthwith
deoided that there would be an international day and formally invited the
peojule of British Oolumiba to journey
to Spokane and tike in the   exposition
and sights.
The committees will get to work at
mini. No trouble .will be spared in
preparing a thoroughly representative
collection of ores and mine, owners are
requested to send iu samples ss soon
ns possible as they must be classified
and sent away within threu weeks.
Ins oommittee on international day
will see thut Nolson is much in evidence in the big parade. It is prob-
able that a man will be sent to tlio exposition to take oharge of tho Nolson
exhibit and to be always on baud to
explain to visitors tho unparalleled
richness of this part of tbo country.
offensive at this time of the year  but
lie made a very serious mistake.
The big bear behaved in au extraordinary muimer and had nothing serious occurred it would have struck both
the men as being very ludicrous.
The bear seemei. to be on very good
terms with herself and evidently made
up her mind to have some fun. Before
MoLeod could reach a ulaoe of safety
the big bear knocked bim down with
such force that he was partially
stunned. Then sho commenced a
species of war dance arouud her vic-
timo, keeping her legs stiff and jumping up and down like a tracking bronco. Every time MnLeod moved she
would pounce upon him and bite him
and then commence to danco again.
MoLeod made one oi two desperate
attempts to escape but the bear waB as
watchful as a oat with a mouse and
every move meant fresh injuries for
the unfortunate 1111)11. At last he saw
only one chance of saving his life. He
had reached a log in his struggles and
lay down beside it as close as he could
squeeze himself and remained perfectly
still. The bear watched him for a
while, theu pawed bim roughly but as
tbere wns no movement she started
off and, joined by her two companions,
who had taken only n passive interest
in the affair, disappeared into the
woods. Aid was secured nnd McLeod
was oonveyed to Ainsworth, and from
there to the hospital at Kaslo, which
he reached Sunday. One leg is badly
lacerated from the knee down and one
shoulder severely smashed and chewed
up. He is suffering severely but if
bioori poisioning does not set in he
shonld speedily recover.

"I hnve taken into account the

all Kootenay points in five days, and
to Vancouver aud the coast in a few
hours longer. This, considering ths
fact thot the distance is covered by

!
Mr. Percy J. Gleazer, mining hro
ker of Ymir is here on a visit and reports considerable activity in his district. A good many deals are in th��-
wind, notably oue on the well known
Hennessey property on Sixteen Mile
creek. Mr. R. K Neil, of Spokane,
who is largolj interested in the Second
Relief mine at Erie, has been inspecting the porperty with a view to purchase. The property which is known
as the Hennessy group   consists of two
claims and is traversed t>y a great mineralised ledge over twenty feet of which
ia solid ore carrying high value in gold
and copper.
A rich chute of ore has Seen uncovered in the Porto Rloo mine and some
large sized nngge'a have been obtained,
An option hns been given on the Empress of India group adjoining the well
known Monarch group near Hall Sid-
l.ig. This property was reported on
by Frank Bobbins, M. E., of Rossland,who, on sampling thn vein,obtained au average assay of twenty-five per
cent across eight inches, the ore consisting of solid chaloopyrites. The
work on tbe Government roads is progressing rapidly. The road has heen
completed from" the Ymir to the Elise
mine aud some distance further up
the north fork of the Wild Horse. The
Porcupine road hns progressed about
a mile and a half.
In spite of the nianv disastrous accidents which have hindered the operations of the Ymir mine, Mr. Gleazer
estimates, the output from the mines
of Ymir during the present year at
some 15,000 tous. The Ymir, of course
olaims the larger part of this tonnage
hut tho crushings of the Porto Rico
aro cow averaging somo 700 tons per
mouths.

SUSPECTED ARSON.
Grave Oharge Laid   Against Two Men
at Oasoade on Saturday.
The cities in the Boundary Creek
district are iu commotion owing to
certain charges of inoendiarism which
havo been laid against two men in
Cascade. It will be remembered that
last July the Columbia Hotel was
burnt down and that the origin of
tho fire was a mystery. On Saturday
two men named Charles Mullen and
Robert Cameron were charged before
Judge Spinks at Cascade with having
set tire to the Columbia Hotel. The
evidence was of n sensational character
aud tended to conueot the fire with
the rivalry betweeu Grand Forks
aud Colombia and to implicate prominent Grand Forks citizens with the
rooent iusendiary fires which destroyed
hotels in Columbia aud Greenwood.
Cameron confessed that ho handled
8300, whioh ho said was paid by him
to Mullen, who hired another man
for S100 to set fire to the Columbia Ho
tel, Mullen, Cameron states, procured
the fuse and a gallon of alcohol and
placed them in tbe hotel office, whence
they were to be taken by the man who
was einoloyed to start tbe blaze.
A man named Rose, it is alleged,
was paid $1115 for the job, but gave the
money back and left, Grand Forks before the fire commenced. Cameron then
undertook the work.
John Wattson, bartender at the Yale
Hotel said Rose warned him that the
fire would occur. Wattson also said
that on Tuesday following the fire
Oameiou begged a drink in the morn
ing while in the afternoon Cameron
was with Mullen ana John A. Manly,
ex-mayor of Grand Forks, and mana-
gor of tbo Yale Hotel, and Cameron
displayed fully $200 and was spending
money freely.
The ev idence given alleged that
Rose, Cameron and Wattson co-operated with each other. Rose Baid that
Mullen first suggested that thev should
take a room in the Hotel Columbia,
saturate it with alcohol, pour a quantity into an open biiRiu and let a short
candle burn down to it.
Mr. W.    A.    Macdonald, CJ.   0��� left
this morning for Grand Forks as some

VENEZUELA ARBITRATION.
Paris, Sept. 4.-Sir Robert. T. Reid,
Q. O..former general of G. B., today
conolnded his argument before the Anglo-Venezuela boundary commission,
presenting tho case for England. Counsel said that England aud Venezuela
before the tribunal held absolutely
the same footing, the question being
one of comparative title. Mr. Geo.
Askwith, junior counsel, continued
the argument of England's case. He
expressed regret that his adversaries
hnd not yet given their legal view of
the controversy. Mr. Askwith referred to Spain luying claim to the
whole of America, calling tne presentation of Venezuela's case whimsical. Mi Askwith said uo European
nation admitted this Spanish claim,
aud that the Dutch, when they obtained their indpenrieuco, held their right
of settling in the West Indies and
