Ottawa, Aug. 25 - Returns bearing
upon the trade of the Dominion for the
financial year ending June 30th last,
place the aggregate trade, imports and
"Dons at $819,988,774 against *304.-
478,780 for the previous year, a gain
in a single year of fifteen and a half
millions. Goods entered for consumption and exports together show
*3il,278,013, against 1294.850,689 last
yar. The following are ttbe entries
under tho two tariffs:

Preferential
Tariff 25,729,209 26,595,540    5,181.861
To this should be added goods oom-
Ing under the French treaty and en
titled to preferenoe iu oertain   lines as
follows:
Imports   ConHum'n      Duty
671,892        557,018       153,980
Total dutiable goods therefore:

The estimated exports not account

050,680 whioh brings the grand total
�� exports to $f58,875,903. No fair
basis of ^comparison ia to be had for
the consumption of the effect of the
Preferential tariff. One month this
year the goods of Belgium and Ger
many reaped the advantage of twenty-
��*�� per cent nnder the reciprocal tariff. Ofthe immense inorease in the imports amounting on goods for consumption to $81,704,104, it ie  impossi
ble to show tho gaiiiH. Development
is indicated along almost all branches
of trade. Large as the gain in imports ie, they show an increase of
thirty millions over tho average of the
last ten years. - Though the exports
show a decline from 1898, iu reality

PEACE AND   POWDER.
MeKiuloy Compares Old Glory to the
Emblom of   Christianity.
Ocean Grove, N. J., Aug. 85.���President McRinley, addressed 12,000 persons in tho auditorium this afternoon.
He was introduced hy Bishop Fitz-
goiald who said tbere is no conflict
between the Stars aud Stripes and the
flag of the Cross, and that they flow
side hy side for humanity, liberty and
truth.    The president said :
"Love of country is not inconsistent with religious faith. I believe that
there is more love for our country and
more people love tho flag than ever he-
fore. Wherever that flag is raised it
stands not for despotism und oppression, but for liberty, opportunity and
humanity, and what'that flag has done
for us we want it to do for all people and all lauds which by fortunes of
war have come within its jurisdiction. That flag does not mean one
thing in the United States and an-
other in Porto   Rico and Phillippines.
There has been doubt in some quarters respecting Ihe policy of the Government in the Philippines. I see no
harm in stating it in this presence
that we desire peace first; then,with
charity for all, establish a Government of law und order protecting life
and property and occupation for the
well being of the people who will participate in it under the Stars and
gtripes "
When tbo president finished the
big building shook with the intensity
of tbe applause

OITY DEBENTURES.
Yesterday the Mayor received word
from Mr. Gross's Toronto solicitors
that Mr. Straoban's declaration as to
the eligibility of the voters in the Eait
Ward for voting on tho debentures bylaw was not forthcoming. The Mayor
telegraphed to tbe Oity Solicitor at
Viotoria as to this matter and received a reply to the effect that the declaration in question had been aant to Toronto more than a week ago. It Is just
possible that the letter containing the
same may have miscarried. As soon
mi thiB declaration is received it is
anticipated that there will be no far*

Mr. Iselin is as determined as 1 am

civil section of the court of cassation,
that he had seen La Libre Parole bearing a postage stamp in Emperor William's bedroom at Potsdam, having on
the paper certain words in German,
meaning: "Dreyfus bas heen a treated," could not possitrly be true. It
was pointed out tbat His Majesty invariably puts his desk in order before
leaving his room and that nothing is
left lying around or open. But, if be
should fail to do so, it is the duty of
his valet to put his things away. Besides it was also said, the Emperor

only marked clippings which, Inter,
are incorporated iu scrap books.

cordon, if established, will produce a
famine more injurious than the plague.

only exit is hy the soa. At at largely

Bertillon  Makes a Demonstration.
THE FARCE AT RENNES.
Court Martial Degene.-ates into a Panto-
mine.��� Sorniany  Oould  Prova
Dreyfus Innooent.
Rennes, Aug. 25.���Tbe adjourned
court martial of Dreyfus opened at 0:80
tbis inorniug without any extraordinary incident. The clerk of tbe court
read medical certificate argued by two
doctors whose, names were unknown
to audience,declaring it waB impossible
for Col. Du Paty de.Olam to leave hie
bed to comes to Rennes aud teBtify.
M. Bertillon was oalled as next witness. He wore u dark blue coat and
to tbe general surprise of the audience
entered tho oourt room without a single paper. But the astonishment was
short lived, the first words of Bertillon
being a request to permit bis diagrams and papers o bo brought in. His
request was granted and Bertillon
retired for a moment. He returned
later at the head of a squad composed
of nn infantry sergeant nnd four privates all staggering under tbe weight
of immense leather satchels bulging
with documents, charts etc., which
they deposited on tbe stage as a roar
of laughter echoed through the court.
Bertillon coniiuenoed his deposition
at 8:80 a. in. It occupied tho whole
day's session and will perhaps occupy
tbe whole of tomorrow's. Bertillon
whom the Dreyfusards describe as a
"DaugerouB maniac" spent the three
remaining hours of the session explaining in intelligible terms his "Infallible system" of proving Dreyfus was
the author ot tho bordeerau.
After M. Bertillon had concluded the
first installment of bis so-oalld demonstration of tbe guilt of Captain Dreyfns, a prominent Dreyfusard reiwrred
to bun as, "The fin de siecle Oaglios
tro"
Tbe Dreyfusards refuse to regard
him as anything but tbe priuoe of
quacks. They cover his remarks with
ridicule and protest that the admission
of hia fanatical theories as evidence
before tho court martial ia a disgrace
tOvFraitoe. "O'est unnjhonte" waa the
remark beard on all sides when the
session closed aud the audience, mainly
made up of Dreyfusards, was being
pressed outside by tho gendarmes, who
clear the conrt room as Boon as the
court adjourns. Nevertheless, even
the Drefyusards do not deceive them -
selves as to the effect of M. Bertilion's
testimony, or "demonstrations" maj
have upon the judges, who, they fear,
will be gulled by what tbe Dreyfusard
consider spurious evidenoe.
All tbe judges bave passed tbrongh
tho Ecole Polytechniqne, the highest
school of soienoe in France, and tbey
are thus particularly interested in such
evidence as M. Bertillon's. A remarkable feature of M. Bertillon's deposition was the oxoitement he put
into what wns expected to be a calm
dispassionate exposition of his theories. He thundered, shouted and waved
his armB as though engaged iu some
terrible dispute. Once he literally
shrieked and numbers of tbo usual audience, who ha 1 beeu unable to follow
him and wore taking the air iu the
court yard, rushed baok into the hall
breathlessly inquiring what had happened and imagining that he was fulminating some dreadful denunciation
of the aocoBed. Their excitement was
turned into hilitarity when they found
that he was merely impressing upon
the -judges the significance of the exact
spaoe measures between two words in
tbe bordereau.
The Echo do Paris announced today
that the counsel of Dreyfus had obtained possession of certain documents
mentioned in the borderean in Esterhazy's writing which they would produce iu oourt next week as a coup
d'etat, Tbe correspondent of the
Associated Prees inquired as to thia
from competent Dreyfusards this afternoon. He was assured that the statement was erreonoua, but was also told
thut the defence intended, in tbe event
of Oaptain Dreyfus being re-oondemn-
ed, to ask the German Government to
communicate these documents, proving
his innnooence, and tbat they had reason to believe suoh a request would be
granted.

THK NEXT   ASYLUM   BUILDING.
Tbe lNter-t report of the, Medical Superintendent of the H'.-pitai for the
Insane, New Westminster, that has
been received at tbis office is for tbe
year ending 81 nt December, 1NI7. Tho
total unmber of patients under treatment during the year waa 2411 ;the admissions were 74, the largest iu tbe
history of the asylum. Several times
in the course of the report the Superintendent speaks of the rapid increase
in the numbor of patients. Tbey had
increased largely in the pBst, and
wera still increasing. So great were
the demands on tbo accommodation
afforded by the asylum building that
the Government   wero   constrained  to
authorise   an  enlargement,   and this
wink was iu progress when the report
was being   written.    Since   that   time
it is nndesrtotod that tbe attendance
has again ranched, or will soon reach,
the utmost limit of tbis increasd provision, and unless the Province is to
allow this unfortunate portion of the
population to go unprovided and uncar-
ed for it will he necessary at an early
day to prepare for still further accconi-
mudation.
The present Hospilal building is
scarcely suitable for further enlargement. When the question comes up for
consideration, as it must in the uear
future, ^tbose wbo regard it from an
architectural and sanitary point of
view will agree that it would be inexpedient to add to the present building. It will be agreed also, by those
who have expert knowledge of tbe
treatment of the insane, that three or
four hundred patients are as many as
it is advisable to congregate at one
place. Iu tbe treatment of all classes
of tbe helpless we believe tbe Province
of Outariu leads the world. Experience there has taught the wisdom of
division, and iutead ot huge institutions, under one management, there
are four���at Toronto, Weston, Hamilton, and London. In British Columbia we shall do well to profit by that
example.
More asylum accommodation will
Boon be neiessary, tbe present building has reached the limit of its usefulness, and it is desirable to segregate. The next qnestion, therefore,
to come np for decision will be that of
a site for a second asylum. In considering this tbe first point to be taken
up will be tbe section of tbe Province
iu which it would be the most convenient to locate it. Tbis convenience will
have to be regarded from several
points of view. The matter of population will bave to be taken into ac
count, for the larger the population
the larger naturally will be the contribution to the number of patienta. It
will be necessary also to consider the
facilities for transportation, and ques
tions of health, economy of niainten
ance, aud others of like character will
all have their weight in influencing
a decision. Whatever may be tbe
present conditions, there can be little
doubt tbat tbo southern portion of tbe
Province will iu a short time be tbe
most populous, the most progressive
and altogether the most, important,and
just as little doubt that Nelson will
be even moie than it is now the centre of that portion. Here will centre
all lines of transportation, whether
of Inn 1 or water, thut are already or
may be established between tho eastern
boundary and the Pacifioand the southern boundary and the main line of the
C. P. R. Here, then, shonld bo locat
ed the next asylum building, and if we
use reasonable diligence and discre
tion in presenting tho advantages of
Nelson tbere need be little fear but we
shall get it.
In order thnt The Columbian may
have no excuse for misunderstanding
The Miner, it will perhaps be well lo
state in explicit terms that in its opinion the Opposition aro not demoralised,
us our New Westminster coutempcrarv
would bave it, or disunited, as the
more cautious News-Advertiser describes their condition. We do not admit, or believe, or fear that tbey are
either demoralised for disunited. They
are merely disorganised, or, more correctly speaking still, unorganised.
They are without a leader, and a political party without a leader is in no
shape for a contest. That they are not
demoralised or disunited Mr. Semlin
will discover to hia entire satisfaction
if be will havo the grace to advise the
assembling of the Legislature. He
will then find sixteen regular members
of the Opposition united as one man
to turn him out, with reinforcements
of four or more who are not of the regular Opposition, but who are equally
impatient to send bim to Coventry in
the quickest possible time aud by the
shortest jsissible route.
Yes, it is open to Mr Semlin to
cluiui anything; but it is not usual to
allow u Government that is clearly
iu a minority to remain long above
ground to press its claim. There is no
doubt whatever as tn llie requirements
of the situation. Mr. Semlin should
either get out at once, or advise His
Honor I" call the Legislature together
and leave to it tbe settlement of any
doubt or dispute that there may be.
And failing tbisjlis Honor should dismiss Mr. Semlin, Whether the Premier is entitled to a dissolution���that
is, a geueral election held under what
may be called the auspines of bis Government���is another question, In the
opinion of The Miner be is, if ho
chooses to claim it. Tbe peoplfl, bow-
ever, aie equally entitled to tbe right
to reject him, which .they will gladly
do the moment the opportunity   oilers.
One of the first things Mr. Frank
Oliver did after arriving homo at Ed-
moDtou from attending the session at
Ottawa was to make a friendly call on
The Post, the rival newspaper estab-
isbed during his absenoe. Thut is what
a gentleman and journalist wouli naturally do. In the Kootenays, many
of whose newspapers are conducted by
liorsoiis wbo nre neither gentlemen nor
journalists, tho practice is different.
We are advised from Kamloops that
Tho Standard of tbar enterprising centre is proposing thai it shall take the
initiative in calling an Opposition convention foi the purpose of organising.
It matters little where the movement
begins, so long as it is carried out.
If this step shall lead to decisive action, Kamloops will deserve great ored-
it for its practical and very desirable
display of public spirit.

naui that no business man shonld leave
money in his till over night. But Mr.
Barry did not practice as he preached
and now is sorry that ho spoko.
The qnestion of burglaries is becom-
ing a serious one. Almost every
uigbl one occurs and although no
large amounts have vet been procured
by the thieves there is no Haying where
it' will on I When the question is
gnne into it will be seen that the merchant are greatly to blame as the condition of some of the entrances to their
Stores invites theives. Chief of Police
Jarvis is leaving no stone unturned
tn put a stop to the practice and to put
the guilty ones behind the bars, but
to Bee wliat uart of the blame can be
attached to storekeepsra he has, within
the past, few days, visited nearly all
the business houses in tlio City. In
I lie large majority of cases he found
that very ordinary locks were used,
especially on the back doors, which
oould he opened with an ordinary key.
Others had new barricades on their
doors, evidently being placed in position after the first burglaries had beeu
committed. In a very few caues the
lucks weie sufficient to foil a burglar.
It is an easy thing for a thief to
open a.i ordinary look, slip into a
store, rob the till and Hlip out agin,
the whole process ooenpying a very
few minutes, The police cannot be
blamed for not stopping this as it is
impossible for two patrolmen to be
everywhere at once another difficulty
that the police meet with is the fact
tbat only money is stolen. If any
thing else were carried off there might
be some chance of running down the
gnilty parties but it is impossible to
trace money. For the past few nights
the electric lights have been out on account of till Improvements being made
tu the svstein and in the inky black
dark loss a partn] man might pass
within a few feel of a suspicious looking party without being aware of his
presence. The lights, however, will
lie on again tonight, It wonld not
seciii that increased police service
wonld iln any good at the present
time. The City has two patrol men
on duty all night, one who is always
1111 Baker street and another who
roams about the Oity, Merchants pay
a third man to patrol tho business
section. This force should be sufficient and will be ns soon as the met
ohnnta make it difficult for a man to
secure entrance.
Chief Jarvis is constantly making
"hoboes" leave town and that class of
men ii giving very little trouble.
The burglars nre evidently local men
who know the City well and who never give themselves away by spending
money freely.

The recent hre on the steamer Rossland (of which a full report appenred
in The Miner) has served to demonstrate the perfect order and discipline
which is maintained on the 0. P. R.
boats on the Kootenay Lakes. The
passeugers who were on the Rossland
when the lire occurred have considered that such conduct should not pass
nnuoliced and have accordingly drawn
up the following testimonial.
S. S. Rossland, Arrow Lakes, 2.3rd
of August,    188!).
We, tho undersigned, passengers on
board the steamship Rossland, hereby
desire to express our high appreciation
of the able and effective manner i-i
which Capt. Albert Foreland, Chief
Engineer Fyfi, Purser Taylor, and the
officers and crew of the S. 8. Rossland
conducted themselves iu combating and
extinguishing the fire which broke out
ou the S. S. Rossland on August 23,
189, whilst on her regular trip from
Arrowhead to Robson, especially in re-
gard to their successful efforts to pro-
vile tor the safety and comfort of tbe
pas-ieugers, and tbe protection of their

LET YOUR   LIGHT SHINE.
To the Editor of The Miner :     Sir-
I understand that the committee iu
charge of tho reception of the Canadian Press Association have made no
request to the citizens to have their
houses lit up tomorrow evening at the
time the train arrives, between 7:30
nnd 8 o'clock. A beautiful view of the
City is to be had from the train as it
conies up the river nnd I think that if
lights were put in as many windows
as possible that face the water tlie
visitors'first iiew of Nelson would be
a decidedly favorable one. It will be no
trouble to anyone to do tbis, I, for
one, will do so.  Who else will?

"If a thing is worth doing at all  it
is worth dr.ing well'' is Mr. W. F.
Robertson's maxim, When that gentleman was instructed by the Government to collect specimens of ore
from B.C. mines for the Paris Exposition he made up his mind tn entor
thoroughly into the task and get as
good and us exhaustive a collection as
it was possible to get. It is an
unpleasant fact but a true one that
Mr. Robertson has not received that
hearty co-operation from some of the
mine owners and managers,in Kootenay that he might have expected. A
large number have indeed ably seconded his efforts but owing to a certain amount of apathy shown by some
Mr. Robertson has bad an arduous task
to perform. Hownver hi' has so far
met with success. Today the first
consignment will be shipped to Ottawa
for classification. By the etirl of September a second shipment will be made
aud specimens for this shipment must
be sent in before the 21st of next
month.
Mr. Robertson has requested The
Miner to again urge all those
mine or prospect owners, or man
agers of the same, who have
not yet contributed specimens to forthwith do so. The advantages to Kootenay iu having a thoroughly represents-
sive exihibt at Paris cannot be over
estimated. It must therefore be in the
interests of everyone wbo bas any
dealings at all in B. C, mines to assist in making Mr. Robertson's mission a thorough success.
The following is a complete list of
the mines and prospects which havo
already contributed specimens. If
there are any that aie not mentioned
it is because their samples have not
yet been received, and it is hoped that
tbey will speedily remedy these defects by sending the best specimens
they can furnish to Mr. Robertson at
the Government office at Nelson.

time, only oue car of ore being sent

���ample shipment, and if it justifies
will 1 >.- followed at once by others.
A large amount of ore is in sight in
this property aud it is no* only a question of whether it is of high enough
grade to stand packing, freight and
treatment.

present week from January 1, 181)1),
has been as follows���
From Bosun Landing���Bosun, 640
