VOLKSRAAD  SUSPECTS-
Letter From H. M. Stanby on the Situation���Increased Aotivity at the
British War Office.
Pretoria to eonfer with Mr. Smnts, returned to Johannesburg to sustain essentially the same charge immediately
after his conference with ihe State
Attorney, Sir John concludes therefore, either that Mr. Smnts has uo
influence with his own subordinates
or that tint official Statement, aiming
to minimize the significance of tbe
arrest are falso. Iu any event the arrest, in the opinion of Sir John, is calculated to do more injury than good
both hero aud iu England.
London, Sept. 5.���Sir Henry M.
Stauloy, tho African explorer, has
written a letter to a friend on the
Transvaal situation in which he declares that the only sensible course for
Englishmen to take is to trust in Mr.
Chamberlain, who is now on trial he-
fore the nation aud the world. "If"
ho writes, '"those compliontioi. aud
wearisome irritations aud unceasing
petitions will not soon terminate they
must pass to the next Government, and
Mr. Chamberlain will havo then piov-
ed no better than the mediocrities who
made Krugerisiu possible. The Briti-
ish nation is on trial before the world,
nnd if we shrink from oompelling that
lrrasciblo old man in the Transvaal
to deal justly with our countryman, we
shall sink below zero in the estimation
of tho world aud the decline of oar
influence and authority iu South
Africa will be hastened."
Tlto Premier, the Marquis of Sulis-
btiry, will conn to London today,
(Wednesday) from Walmer to confer
with the Secretary of State for ilie
Colonies, Mr. Joseph Chamberlain,and
a cabinet council has been summoned
for Friday, urgent message haviug

their contents have not been marie public. General Lord Wolseey, Field Marshall aud 3oiiimar'der-in-Cliief, is in
daily communication with the War
Ullice, ns are also General Wood, Ad-
jutsnt-General to the forces, ami Colonel Hector Mrcdonnld, Aide-de-Oamp
to the Queen. The press association
asserts that the officers of the Highland Liiiht infantry nt Davenport,
notified their men last oveniug to prepare for depart_re7probably on Thursday. The Daily Mail expresses the
opinion that the "next move will be
au ultimatum unless President Kruger
yields.''
It declares that 15,000 meu is the out
side number that the Transvaal Government can put in the field. The
Berlin correspondent, of The Daily
Mail sayi : "I learn from Boer sonrceB
that reliable news has beon received
ut The Hague, from Pretoria to the
effect that President Kruger will not
givo Mr. Chamberlain time to send an
ultimatum, but will tike advantage
of the first suspicion ot the British
troops on the border to assume the
offensive."
The Morning Post has the following
trom its Johannesburg correspondent
wbo is now at Fietermnritburg, the
capital of Natal: "I inspected the
country carefully on the way trom
Johannesburg. Tbo Veldt is uot yet
in condition for operation. The t iwn
of Newcastle is utterly unprotected.
To seize It would assure tht, Boers

lng over rough country peculiarly suited to Boor taotics. Tho War Office

The Johannesburg oorrospeondmifc of
The Standard says: "There seems
to be some ground for supposing
that the peace party at Pretoria has
Ruiuod a temporary advantage as to
the result of influence of Mr. Fischer,
the special representative of the
Orange Ftee State.''

Transvaal Stnto Attorney, Mr. Smuts.
m the proceedings against the editor
IJf the Transvaal Leader recently ar-
Matea on charge of treason, said that a
considerable disparity existod between
the oillciai account of the affair and
the real facts. He virtually declared
'hut the wholo incident was, a mistake
hot he pointed out that according tho
newspaper reports, the public prosecutor, who went from Johannesburg  to
Pretoria, Sept. 6.���The Volksraad
today reported that Ooestor had convened a meeting to debate on the assembling of British troops along the
Transvaal borders for Thursday next.
Iu presenting his motion, Mr. Coes-
ter referred to the Jameson raid and
other outrages and murder commitied
by British troops as leading him to
distrust the present concentration.
Tho Burghers supported Mr. Ooester,
saying that, while negotiations were
proceeding all the British colonies
were offering aimed assistance; "and
must the Transvaal remain silent?"
exclaimed a Burgher, "lt is opposed
to Christianity, to conduct friendly
negotiations and yet mobilize troops;
we must kuow whore the British
troops are on our border."

GALKNA   FAKM   PROPERTY.'
A W. MoCnno and W. L. Huge,
wbo, witl, McCuuig, Rykert & Co.,
of Moutreal, have just purchased the
Galena Farm property in the Slocan,
have returned home after a lengthy
visit to their latest purchase, says the
Spokune Chronicle. The property was
thoroughly examined aud preparations
mnde to put a large amount of money
into it.
These Utah and Canadian capitalists
have undertaken u task which a strong
English company gave up in diBgust.
Over $100,000 has already beeu spent
on tho Galena Furin. The company
after spending tbis amount deoided
lhat it never would be able to make
anything out of the property and advertised it for sale. The Cauadian and
other mining papers eontuiiied advertisements offering it for some time,
but no purchaser was found until the
present owners were interested. The
following is the stcry of the Galena
Farm as told by the Salt Lake Herald:
���'About five years ago an English
company was inoooornted under the
name or tne Galena Mines, Limited
with an authoirzed capitalisation of
$.,500,000 iu $5 shares. Of this amount
$1,600,000 was issued, and sold nt par
foi tho puipose of purchasing a prop-
evty adjoining the great Payne mine,
near Silverton, in the Slocan lake miniug district of British Columbia. TbiB
purohuse was part of tbe Currau group
and is now known as the Galena
Farm.
"As a matter of fact, this property
was purchased for $70,000 for the English company. The English shareholders wero, told that the mine could
pay nbout $500,000 per annum, although at thia time the developments
consisted of a 60-foot shaft und some
drifting. The management, in the
space of about two yeurs, epent   $1(10,-
000 iu cash on the plant aud development, when the discovery was made
that tbe ore wob of a much lowei grade
than represented, and worse still, development failed to open up the -oro
body shown in the upper levels. Several reports were made on the property
for tbe English shareholders, ana it became evident that a further large expenditure would be necessary before
the mine could he put in shape to pay
dividends.
"The funds by this time had become
exhausted and as a result it became
necessary to Bhut down the mine,
and the Inst page of this portion of the
mine's history was written Borne weeks
ago when it was purchased by A. W.
McCune, W. L. Hoge and McOuaig,
Rykert & Co., of Montreal. This Montreal firm is the owner of the Payne
mine, the biggest mine and the one
that has paid the best dividends of
'any mine in British Columbia."
1 The new owners of the Galena Form
'propose   to   develop  aud  operate the
mino on scientific   mining   principles,
land considerable money will be expended in improved machinery. Recent reports  have  beeu   made   to  the
: new owner'B ot an immense body of
ore iu sight.    Carl H. Hand,  formerly
! of Butte, superintendent of the Payne
mine, bus been placed in charge of the
Galena Farm. There is already a fine
hoist and compressor run by water
power, and rapid  development of  the
j mine has been  determined upon.
MARKOV ESCAPE OF
All ATLANTIC LINER
Almost   Another   Terrible
Disaster at Sea.
STRUCK   AN   ICEBERG.
Oity of Borne Crashes Through the Edge
of the Burg in a Thick Poe���
Brit'sh Tars in a Panio-
New York, Sept. 5��� Passengers
who arrived here ou the Anchor line
steamship City of Rome from Glasgow yesterday, told of an exciting experience they had on Thursday last off
the banks of Nowfonudlaud, when
the vessel ran into un iceberg in a
dense fog, aud bad a narrow escape
f.om adding another to the list of
frightful disasters at S9n. Tho City of
Rome left Glasgow on August 26 and
had a fair and uneventful voyage until
Thursday August 81,whon early in the
day she ran into a thick heavy fog.
Her speed was reduced to about nine
knots an hour and extra 'ookouts were
posted. As the day wore on the air bo-
oame cold, and, fearing icebergs might
be the cause, Oapt Hnp.h Young and
seveial of his officers remained oou-
stautly on the bridge Tbo entile
cvew, v>ere held in readiness for any
emergency, lint no word of the anxiety of the ships officers reaching the
passengers, nnd theim iu the first cabin
who ate at the first table were at dinner when Ihe collision ooourred, at
about 5:60 o'clock Capt. Young was
pacing the" bridge, occasionally , stopping to peer into the gloom,or to speak
to ono of the othir officers, and by his
direction ono of them had just signalled the engineer to slow down still
more when tho lookout ou the starboard bow waved his hands and shouted, ."Ice dead ahead, sir !" Within a
second tho bells were clanging in tho
engine ruoni and the Oity of Rome was
hacking at full speed. Meantime all
the officers except the captain had
spiuug from the bridge and, in response to their orders, the crow were
taking their posts at the boats and
elsewheie. When the vessel slruok
every man was in his place and the
boats wore being made ready to drop
over the sides. All this was done iu a
few seconds and almost nt the same
time thore came a sharp quick shock,
under which tho vessel reeled slightly
to port for a moment. There was a
crunching noise, the bow rose high in
the air and then drooped to tho level
again aB the City of Rome crushed
through aud glauced alon* the edge of
the iceberg, passed it aud it disappeared iu the fog lt wns all over iu a
minute and then Caplain Young
sprung to the bow and lowered him-
iiself from the chains to ascertain
what damage had been done. He reappeared in about two minutes and
irhouted to the passengers, who now
crowded the decks, "No damage, iio
danger.'' What he had found was
that the bobstay had beeu bent in and
the right arm of the figure head representing Julius Ceasar had beeu broken
off. There was a scene of considerable
excitement iu the cabin when the shock
of the collision occurred and it was
only prevented from becoming a panic
by the coolness aud energy of the ships
doctor,' John K. Crawford, and other
officers, who finally succeeded in
quieting the fears of the passenpers.
Several women fainted, others became
hysterical, and a number of men and
women fell upon their knees in prayer.
There was also a new terror added
to the scene for a few minutes. A passenger who hud acted, queerly during
the voyage, and had, it is said, been
pnt under restraint, ran from his
stateroom nnd through tha saloon
wildly brandishing a knife. Within
ten or flftoen minutes, however, quiet
was fully restored, but many of the
oassengers, the women especially, remained up all night, and some took
the precaution of providing themselves
with life preservers.
Opt. Young when nsked nhout tho
collision said : '' We ran into a herg
in a fog, that's about the whole of it.
The figure head was damaged and tho
bobBtay waB bent but there was no
other damage doue, that I know of.
None of the plates were strained nor
was there an.' leakage as far ns we
could see The ship is as tight now us
the day she was built. We were going
at nbout nine knots nn hour before we
saw the berg. When wo saw the I erg
we were making about three knots an
hour. We were backing at full speed
when we strnok. We were in latitude
48.80 north, and longitude 4S. 44 west.
As to leakage, I know of none. The
ship is fit to go ronnd the world now,
but wo may employ a diver to make
sure that there has been no strain.''

Victoria, Sept. 5���(Speoial.)���Under
a big scare heading the Victoria Globe publishes this afternoon an editorial from the Nel-
son Miner headed, "Whit Does it
Mean?" Following this up witn a
futhor editorial Tho Globe says: "Tho
Globe s bound to coufess that The
Miner is justified in drawing such an
inference. Although wo have hesitated to put the cuso quite ns bluntly
as onr contemporary, we repeat that
all the circumstances surrounding the
present situation warrant the conclusion that Lit ntenant Governor Mcln-
nes .s using his official position to safeguard the interests of hiB political
friends. What else is there to think V
Let us state the facts once again:
Lieutenant Governor Mclnnes, nt
the lust general election, summarily
dismissed tho Turner Ministry although there was absolutely no evidence that thn theu Government would
not be able to command a majority in
the Legislature, Now, it is the same
Lieutenant-Governor Mclnnea who
refuses to dismiss a Government of
whoso inability to command a majority
in thu House there is absolutely not a
shadow of a doubt, and which is moreover, discredited throughout the entire
country. Now with these facts before them, what are the people to
think? It is contended, in some quar-
teis.of course,that the Lieutenant-Governor, iu dismissing the Turner Government, ignored the question of a ma
jority altogether and dismissed his advisors because tbe members of the Gov
eruent had been guilty of an attempt
to mislead him regarding tho signing
of Orders-in-Council. Well, let us assume, for the sake of argument, that
that is the case. If the Lieutenant-
Govornor is anxious to act impartially
now he may find ample reasons for
dismissing tho present Government altogether outside of the question of majority. For instance the charge made
by ex-Attorney General Martiu, when
a Minister of the Crown, that the Finance Minister had been gnilty of altering important public documents. Bnt
Lieutenant-Governor Molnues condones
the offenses of the present Government
he blinks at their criminal blundering
and permits the continuation of the
condition of affairs, working inonlcu-
able damage to tho country. Is the
preris to remain silent in the face of
this abominable situation? Are people
to sit with hands folded while an individual "clothed in a little brief authority" rides rough Hhod over their
rights? If those questions are to be answered in the affirmative, The Globe
will oommeuoe an agitation for the
purchase by public supscriptiou of a
orown, thnt a kiug may appeal iu proper equipment on the throne. "
Montroal, Sept. 5.���The following
telegram, which was received by Mr.
McNicoll, spoaksr for itself:
"Vancouver, B. C , Aug. 21.���D.
McNicoll, Asst. -Gou. Manager C.P. H.
"One hundred members of tho
Canadian Press Association are deeply
grateful to tho 0. P. R. Company for
the uureniitting courtesy and hospitality which has made their trip across
the continent the most interesting and
pleasant ot all their ontings. Though
conscious of the sterling work accomplished in the spanning of a continent,
for a large part, remote from settlement, and in the opening up of n territory as vast as some empires, the actual view unfolded in the journey has
impressed the excursionists more forcibly than words can represent. Tbe
development all along the route, iu
cities, as well as in agricultural and
grazing motions, hns been surprising
and is most encouraging to lovers of
solid progress and hopeful prosperity.
The ease and comfort with whioh the
trip from ocean to ocean is attended
in the enrs and in the C. P. R. hotels
through a sorvice unexcelled anywhere, is a triumph for Canadian skill
and enterprise, secondjjonly to the fln-
I uncial aud engineering victories ut-
' tained in the building of tho greatest
! scenic and developing line in America.

The known cases of cruelly in Vancouver are such now as to demand attention, tbe slum districts if great nlu

Thomas Hood or Charles Rendc with

THE   WALLACE     INDlOTMENTr.
Cases Postponed Because the Prisoners
Were Not There.
Wallace, Idaho, Sept. 4.���The thirty-
two indictments against the prisoners
in the military prison at Wardner will
not be prosecuted this week. Just
when they will be taken up Prosecuting Attorney Forney will not state.
Civil cases weio set for trial today
by Judge Stewart, which will occupy
the court's attention uutil Saturday
next. The prosecutor announced that he
will be ready to take, the criminal matters upou Tuesday morning, and will
push tha cases along as fast as possible.
Tho escape last week of Ionian and
Oraddock with seven othor prisoners
from the Wardner bull pou has disarranged the plans of the prosecution, as
the officers were ready to proceed today with the cases against Ionian and
Cruddock, this being tho date set for
their trials before the court adjourned
at the last term. Now other cases must
be taken up, as the attorneys desire
some timo to prepare for trial. No
intimation is given out as to which
of the prisoners will bo culled first.
Court convened at .:!!(�� this afternoon, both sides being represented by
the same counsel as ai the spring term.
After setting cases on tint oiul calendar for tbe balance of tlie week the
court annonnced that he was ready to
bear motions in criminal oases.
Prosecutor Fonrney entered a motion
to continue tho cases against the seven
escaped prisoners. Oolonel Reddy, tor
the defence, objected, declaring that
his side was ready to proceed. The
oourt ordered the sheriff to tiring in
tho prisoners, but with many blushes a
deputy sheriff annonnced that this was
impossible, ns the men had escaped
from oustody. The conrt ordored the
cases to bo continued, while the spectators and attorneys enjoyed n laugh
over the faroieal proceedings.
Colonel Reddy tfcen asked for information aa to when the charges pending
against the balance of the prisoners
wonld bo prosecuted. Prosecutor Fonrney said he would toke tho matter np
Tuesday morning. Permission was
granted the attorneys for tho defense
to visit the men in tho Wardner
prison.
The escape of last weok is still a
theme of general comment on the
streets, but tho-gh muuy rumors are
in circulation concerning the supposed
movements of tbe men, there is nothing authentic. The belief prevalis
thut the jail break was too c.loverly
i planned and executed to admit probability of re-capture. Officers are ret-
J icent about the whole affair.
Telegraphs to Emperor William and King Humbert.
DRAWING TO A CLOSE.
Evidence uf Italian and German Attaches
Most Important of Trial���Dreyfns
Confident of Acquittal.
Rennes, Sept. 5. -Maitre Labori telegraphed personal appeals to Emperor
William and Kiug Humbert to grant
permission to Ool. Schwartzkoppen,
and Col. Panizzardi, the German and
Italian attaches in Paris in 1894, to
come to Rennes to testify in behalf of
Dreyfus. This is the chief topic of
conversation in cafes nnd reports of
journalists tonight. The appeals were
c .nuhed in eloquent terms, invoking
the assistance of their majesties in the
name of justioe and humanity These
were quite supplementary to the foi-
mill application that will be made by
Government Commissary, Major
Carriere.
Tho demand of M. Labori that the
conrt martial should issue process Bub��
ject to the approval of the two sovereigns, came line a thunderbolt in today's session. This slop is fraught
with momentous consequences, as it
affords Emperor William an opportunity to assume his favorite role of abri-
trator of the destinies of the world. No
one would be surprised if Col. Schwartzkoppen, in the name of the Kaiser,
should make a declaration that would
practically dcoido the trial. Both
Schwartzkoppen und Pnnizzardi must
consult their respective sovereigns before coming, but the oounsel for Capt.
Dreyfus fully expects them to arrive
here, if thoy oome at all, in time to
give their testimony on Thursday. In
that case the trial would probably con-
���rume this week and the verdict be delivered Friday or Saturday. This is
the view that obtains tonight, differing somewhat from the feeling earlier
in tbe day, Col. Jouast told Maitre
Demange at the close of the session
tbat if he should receive au official
notification that. Cols. Schwartzkoppen
and Panizzardi would come to depose
he would be prepared to adjourn the
trial pending their arrival. An adjournment of 48 hours wonld probably
give them time to got here. A remarkable circumstance, nnd one that
is significant of tbe relations between
the two prominent advocates who are
conducting tbo defence, is the faot
tbat Maitre Labori telegraphed the
German Emperor and tbe King of Italy
on bis own initiative without consulting Maitro Demange. The appearance
of Cols. Schwartzkoppen and Paniz-
ardi would be the most sensational,
as well as the most important incident
of the entire trial. Their depositions
would be a formal and emphatic declaration that they never had any relations
with the accused and they wonld
make such statements that the* court
must older an acquittal. Those who
nre in the confidence of the counsel intrusted with the defonse express a firm
conviction that Dreyfus will now be
acquitted. Nevertheless, one of the
most prominent generals, with whom
tho correspondent coversed todny, declared himself .quite pleased with the
progress of the trial thus far und confident of u conclusion eminently satisfactory to the prosecution. Tomorrow's , session will open with dosed
doors to hear from Eugnetne Oer-
nuschi, tho Austrian political refugee,
tbe name of the foreigu attache be bas
already mentioned as admitting that
he had received treasonable documents
front Dreyfns. Tho remainder of his
evidence will be given in public. It
is reported that the minister of war
has sent orders to tbe generals and
other military witncBses to leave Rennes and return to thoir respective posts
within two hours after the conclusion
of the depositions and uot to be present during the pleadings. Tbey will
be absent wheu the verdiot is delivered. General Mercier being on tbe
retired list is not affected by this order,
but Gennrals Roget, Gonse and De
Boisdeffre must go. The orders are
intended to avert a demonstration in
favor of the generals.

A SINGULAR  APPEAL.
Ono of tho ntOBt extraordinary appeals that has ever appeared in a newspaper is tbat made by The Victoria
Globe to the son of the Lieutenant-
Governor, The Globe deolares that
the father consults the son in all matters pertaining to the duties of his
high ollice: that in all things he is influenced by his son; that, in sho-t, it
is the son who is Lieutenant-Governor,
aud not the father. It goes on to say
thero is a widespread couvictiou
thut the fathor is prolonging the present Ministerial crisis in order to turn
it to tho advantage of his son. The
appeal is tbat the son shall sacrifice his
personal ambition to the good of the
Province, and advise bis father to put
an end to the existing slate of things
by dismissing the Semlin Oovernmeut.
We cannot but hope that The
Globe is mistaken. We cannot
gather that among the people at
large thore is much respect for or confidence in the person whom a enrious
fortune has given us as Lieutenant-
Governor, but it is difficult to believe
that he is employing his position to
traffic iu the brawls of the political
parties for the benefit of himself or his
family. The continuance in office of
a Government that has notoriously
lost the confidence of tbe Legislature
is a grave public scandal; bnt if we
were to believe this story of the Lieutenant-Governor and his son, the scandal of it would be so infinitely greater that Mr. Semlin aud his affairs
wonld sink out of sight. If The
Globe has reason to think that Lieutenant-Governor Molnues is couspiring
with his son for the purposo it suggests, it should drop the Premier and
train its guns on Government House.
It must, at any rate, see tbat an appeal to the patriotism of a man who
wonid use his father and bis father's
positiou us a Lieutenant-Governor
to advance his own political fortuues
through tbtr misfortunes of the country is a waste of  good   intentions.
A PRETTY RESIDENT, HE !
The Miniug Record is not impressed
with the arguments of tbo Union
champions, who profess to hold that
the working miner is entitled to extra
pay because of tho supposed richness
of the mines of the country, and further tbat he deserves greater consideration as a resident than the alien shareholder. To this piece of stupidity
The Mining Record vouchsafes a reply.
It was scarcely needed, for it is doubtful if evon those who put it forward
have the least respect for it. A densely
ignorant person may bo imposed upon
by it; bnt there nre degrees of ignor-
nuce which it would be hopeless to
assail, and belief in this species of confiscation would be one of them.
In the course of its remarks our contemporary says: "It is asserted that
the working miner, who suddenly
and quite unwarrantably strikes be-
causo mine-owners rofuse to pay him
the same wage for eight hours as fur
ten, is entitled to more consideration
than tbe alien shareholder who has
risked his money nud in the majority
01 cases, as yet, has got nothing iu return. The alien shareholder is very
likely to come to tho conclusion that
if that is the opinion of the country
they can do without him altogether.
In such an event miner's unions would
be quito as useless and certainly uo
more ornamental than tho abandoned
and rusting machinery whoso wheels
thoy had boon instrumental in stopping. "
The alien shareholder in this oase
Includes tho British shareholder, although it sounds oddly to hoar a British subject ranked as nn alien in Canada. But whothor British or other, it
is obvious that without the alien we
cannot have the capital. Aud without
the capital there can be no mining.
In quarrelling with the alien, therefore,
wo quarrel with our own bread nud
butter, a course of conduct that lias
been regarded as idiotio since those remote days w'beu reason was supposed
to have dawned on man. But in any
case why should the country regard
tho miner with more afTeciion or consideration than the shareholder? Tho
Shareholder is not more nn alien than
the miner is. The flight-Hour law
was not in force twenty-four hours before the miners of tbo Slocan began to
/look out of the country in hundreds.
Pretty residents they wero! Tbey
huve   gouo  out  steadily  since,  until
uow it is the boast of the Unions that
the mines could not be worked even
if the increased pay were offered; The
iniili who can flit as readily as this,
and take himself off to the United
States on a day's notice because he
cannot have hia own way with the
property of others, can hardly be called a resident.
The Empire, London, claims to be
"the recognised organ of Greater Britain," and to support lhe claim devotes
the most of its thought and space to
Colonial affairs. A Canadian department is a permanent feature, in the
current issue there is a paragraph on
Canadian tobaoco, which it says is
chiefly cultivated by "tho French in
the Province of Ontario," although
lately tbe "farmers in the Dominion
counties of Essex and Kent" have
taken to it. W. are afraid thut outside its own ollice The Empire will
not be recognised as nn organ of Greater Britain until it displays a bettor
knowledge of the physical nnd political geography of the colouies than is
indicated here.

NO SUNDAY  TRADING,
Duel  Between   Alde'men Fletcher  and
Beer-Report 0f Board of Works
Oomuiittee Adopted.
When the City Council met last
night. The Mayor, Aid. McKillop,
Beer, Kirkpatrick und Fletcher, were
in attendance. The special meeting
was culled for the pnrpose of considering a report of tho Hoard of Works and
tho various by-laws that hnd been prepared.
The Board of Worki snhmittod the
following report.
"We recommend that the oontract
fur laying the water pipe up Cotton-
voorl creek he awarded to Mo Beth &
Paters fur the sum of $4,8(18 15.
"That the City Solicitor be instructed to draw up agreements for right of
way for the steel pipe line np Cotton
wood ereek over Blooks H, J, K, and
also Hlock G, and that same be submitted to owners.
"That the tenders of Campbell &
Deaonii, for tho construction of sewer
from Stanley streot to Criokmay hospital be accepted.
"That the City put iu a six-foot
water wheel at the power house in
place of the present fom-foot wheel "
Un tho suggestion of Aid, Beer the
remirt was considered clause by clnnhe.
Aid. Beer stated that t'10 last time
Hie cost of the pipe line wus diseussoo
it was thought that it conld be constructed for a much cheaper figure hy
the Oity.
Aid. Fletcher said that the difference
on ligures was abont 15 per cent, nnd
that this amount would be sunk in
providing tools nnd implements and in
more indifferent work. The t ity, he
olaimed, could not save the diffcieno.e,
which was about $800.
A geueral discussion followed and
the aldermen gave their opinious on
every nspeofof tho question but tin-
ally, on motion of Aid. Beer and Aid.
MoKillop,the first clause was adopted.
The second and third clauses of report were carried, but the water wheel
question was disoUBsed for some time.
Aid. Fletcher explained that the
present four foot wheel wns now being
driven to tbe fullest extent and that
a larger wheel was certainly needed if
the City could afford the ontlny.
Considerable chances of serious dam-
ago were being tnken with tbe present
wheel. It was decided to go into rhe
qnestion at a special meeting to be
held tomorrow evening nt 8 o'clock.
Aid, Beer sugaested that tha mutter of
meters bo also discussed tomorrow
night.
Then came the second reading of Ala.
Beer's pet lambs, the new by-laws.
The proceedings of the previous City
Council huve heretofore been distinguished for their peaceful aud almost
somnolent nature. Anyone in search
of excitement or desirious of witnessing, wh_t is known as, "a scrap"
would as soon think of attending a
prayer meeting as a solemn conclave
of the Oity Fathers. Last night, how-
over, there was u startling change. Tho
meeting wns to say the least lively and
exhilarating. One would have thought
that,like the memorable battle of Waterloo, some of the aldeimanic warriors
had participated iu "revelry by night"
before attending the meeting.
By-law 40 imposing a road tax ot $8
on every male of age was, on tie motion of Aid. MoKillop, read a second
time. Then Aid. Beer moved the sec-
end reading of the bv law prohibiting
the sale of goods, merchandise, etc,
on Sundays. This at once caused Aid.
Fletcher to sound the war note. Why
should suoh a by-law. be passed he
demanded? Then Aid. Beer explained
his reasons for introducing the bylaw. It was the almost unanimous
wish of tbe traatBmeu in tho City
that they shoidd have a holiday on
Sundays. Now one cantankerous (?)
store keeper could, if so minded, present this scheme by keeping his store
open on Sundays, for naturally his fellow tradesmen oould not nfford to lose
custom by closing their stores so long
as one remained opened. If so large a
majority of the tradesmon favored
suoh a by-law there was ample reason
why the City should pasB one so as to
assist in carrying out the wishes of
'he people.
This explanation did not suit Aid.
Fletcher who freoly and forcibly condemned that class of legislation. Aid.
Beer stuck to his gnns and was sup-
Ported by Aid. McKillop, Aid. Kirkpatrick, observing discreet silence,
though ho voted tor the by-laws.
Aid. Fletcher desired to know if the
by-law would prevent tho sale of refreshment* and meals?
Aid. Beer said that certainly was not
tho intention of the framer.
On the  motion of  Aid.   MoKillop
this question was referred   to the City
aolir ilor (who was absent).
Aid. Beer moved an amendment so as
to include tobacco and newspapers in
the goods which were unserved by the
by-law and this was cariied und the
by-law as an.en led wns read fur tho
second timo. By-lnw No. oi dealing
with the suppression of wash housfs
which are not connected with the sew
ers was read the second lime.
By-law No 52, which compels the
closing of barber shops on Sunday was
then purposed by Aid. Beer. Aid.
Fletche" again returned to the oharge
and seveiely criticised the by-law, indulging iu ono or two thrusts at Ihe
proposer which culled for retorts. The
meeting then degenerated into u duel
between Aid, Fletcher and Beer, the
former becoming somewhat, heated, but
Aid. Beer, it niny be truthfully suid,
did not '"lose his hair."
Aid. Fhtoher warned to know how
thy Mayor would vote: Mayor Neelands said that he was in favor of the
oy-law ns ho understood that all the
barbers wished   to close  on   Sundays.
The teooud reading was cariied and
Aid. Fletcher desired to record hiB dissentient vote, protesting that the
proceedings were irregular as the by-
lnw had not been read but only referred to by name.
By-law No 53, railing for numbering of the bouses and naming the
streets also passed  tlie second reading.
Aid. Beer then suggested reading
the by laws a third time.
Aid. Fletcher said that this was impossible and lhat Aid. Beer did not
kuow what he was talking about. This
lead to mere squabbling aud still more
pointed remarks when Aid. Beer hurriedly moved tho adjournment of lhe
meeting, which waa carried, and the
Mayor immediately fled so as apparently to escape being a witness at the
"killing."

The St.ir Bakery, R. G. Joy, pro-

street, recently vacated by tbe Nelson
L sundry and will take possession eaily
next week.
Owing to au accident to the wheel
of tire steamer Nelson, she did not
leave for Kootenay Landing until midnight last night, PiiBseugers fiom tbo
hotels were giveu no notice of the
hour ut which the boat would leave
auri a dozen or more stood shiveriusg
on the wharf for uearly   two hours.
The eleotrio light was even a little
worse than usual last night, it will
not amount to much until tie dynamo
nirives and is put in place. The contractor have uutil October 15th to do
this and ns contractors rarely finish a
job before it ia necessary it may be
taken for granted that the service will
be poor until thut time.
Austin J. Kellv and Thomas Cameron, whose exploits were reoorded in
yesterday's Miner, came beforo Magistrate Crease yesterday and were coin-
nntieo for trial, the one for attempted
burglary, the oiher for steulng. They
will appear before Judge Foriu together with Frank Kennedy (tbe revolver robber) and will then elect
whether they will take a speedy trial
or await, in durance vile, the next as-
ze.
The Nelsou Baseball club will bold
a ball on Thnrsday uight in the Opern

again demonstrated that sho is the superior of the Defender, the 1H05 champion, hy defeating her 10 minutes and
seveu seconds over a triangular course
in an eight-knot breeze nnd a smooth
sea. The contest wbb a procession
throughout with the Columbia leading
at the start by 18 seconds and gaining
on every leg of the course.
The tirst leg was a reach from the
starting point at Brenton's Reef light
ship southeast ono half east to a flag
mark, a distauco of 10 miles, and from
the moment tho Columbia crossed the
line she steadily sailed away from ber
rival, gvhing round tho first mark
three minutes 86 seconds ahead.   The
second leg was also a reach, a little
broardex than the tirst, but even if
the Defender did set her spinnaker
a niile from the turn she dropped two
minutes and 19 seconds more in the
run to the second mark. The third
leg of the triangle was almost a dead
beat to the finish, the two boats making a long bitch clear to theNarragan-
seit shore. The Columbia made two
other short tucks before she reached the
1'iie, hut the Defender, by holding
lonnor iu shore, managed to reach the
lightship, without another tack. Still
the Columbia gained and showed that
with sheets close hauled she is the fastest Amerioan sailing yaoht afloat. On
tbis last leg she added four minutes
and ti seconds to her lead, making a
total for the entire couise of 10 minutes and seven seconds There will be
no more official raoes, that of today
settling conclusively in the minds (if
the committee, whioh of the two
boats is fetter fitted to meet the
Shamrock. The cup committee is permitted to defer announcing the name
of the yacht selected to defend the cup
until a week prior to the date of the
first coutest aud therefore tbe decision
was not. made public. Of course thero
is not the slightest doubt that the Columbia will bo the craft chosen.
What all the yachtsmen would like
to see iB a contest between the boats
when they could carry only their
lower sails. On the run of tho New
York Yaoht club flora this port to
the Viueyardhaven, during the recent
cruise in a half sale, the Defender
practically defeated the Columbia on
time allowance, and there are today
manv who think that the; old boat is
the faster in a stiff nreeze'with lifted
sheets. On the run to the Vineyard-
haven the Columbia had a fir'mast
which no doubt handicapped her to
some extent, and what remains to be
seon is whether she is improved in
hoavy weather by the steel mast as
much us she is in moderate breezes.
The Columbia's mainsail fitted a
little bit better today than it did on
Saturday, due, no doubt, to the
stretching it received in the first trial
race and the subsequent hauling out
on the boom and gaff. Slill there is
room for improvement, as there is a
curl to the leech tbat some yachtsmen don't   like.
There will be a race tomorrow morning between the Columbia and Defender for a cup offered by William God-
darri of Providence, Mr Iselin's father-
in-law. The reason lor holding this
race is to try a now and lighter weight
mainsail on tbe Columbia.
The summnry of today's yacht race
was: Start: Columbia, ll :2<i.09; Defender, 11:20 22. Finish: Columbia,
2:48 83; Defender. 2;68.58. Elapsed
time: Colombia, 8:15.4; Defender,
3:27.81. Colombia wins by 10 minutes   seven   seconds.
The actual time in n race of close to
88 miles, for about three miles, must
be added for tho windward work sailed iu the last leg of lhe course. There-
ore tbe Columbia averaged 10 miles an
hour for the entire conrse.
TRIAL OF  THE SHAMROCK.
New York, Sept. 5.���The Shamrock
spread her wings or her fiist practice
in American waters today, and every
one who saw her move said sho was
very fa��t. It was about 11 o'clock
when the trial was started, and between 8 and 4 o'clock when it wus
over. Sir Thomas Lipton, Mr. Fif��,tho
designer of the Shamrock, and Mr.
Ratsey were abroad the Shamrock.
Captain Archie Hogarth and his assistant, Captain Bob Wringe. steered Ihe
yacht alternately. She nailed over tho
regular cup course, starting from the
Scotland lightship, u aliiug for tho
Long Island shore, then buck to tho
New Jersey shoo nnd then back to
the starting point. Aside from the
Shamrock aud hot escorts, thero wero
no boats dowu there except the press
boats.
The Shamrock, after having gotten
outside, cast off the tow line, hoisted
her mainsail and headed eastward.
The jib and staysail were broken out
nnd she appeared to stand up well.
Her sails were described as fiat as
boards. The practice rim lasted four
hours, after which the yacht anchored
inside tbe Hook. After the trial the
Shamrock with her tender anchored in
the Horseshoe, where they will remain until after tho races ure over.
Tl.e Erij, with Sir Thomas Lipton
aboard, will probably slay at Sandy
Hook until Weduesduy, when she will
bring her owner to Tompkinsville.
There will be another trial toramor-
row, with the Shamrock carrying the
same   spar.,   but another set of  sails.
The only unusual incident of the trip
was the passing of the Shamrock and
the ocean liner City of Rome, which
was incoming. This occurred when
the Shamrock had started ou her trial
and was nbout four miles off Sandy
Hook. The steamship saluted the
Shamrock with her siren whistle and
dipped her   colors    The   passengers
were all crowded to the side and gave
the Shamrock a hearty cheer.
EASILY LEAD and
MISLEAD.
The people that run after every fly-by-night
bargain sale,where something is offered for nothing, are the kind of people that are never satisfied; and no wonder, for they nevet get anything
worth wearing.
The well satisfied people are those who buy
their FOOTWEAR of reliable dealers; knowing from past experiences that they get their
moneys' worth.

been a net Influx
London, Aug, 19.���(Special to the
Nelson Miner)���No obange was made
in tlm bank rate. The directors of the
Hank of England havo now got complete control of the money market,
There bas been a considerable displacement of funds owing to the distribution of a number of railway dividends, a oall of ��1,300,000 on the Japanese loan, a call of ��500,000 on the
Loudon County Council stock and the
falling in of ��250,000 by the Innian
Council. Discount rates have also
boon firm, and the Bank of England
has again done a large business, chiefly
in three month's bills. The bank
makes a good return
reserve to liabilities
against 44 por cent,
last return thero has
of gold to tho bank of   ��494,000.
Consols have moved within narrow
limits bet make a moderate improvement on balance 106 to a 14.- Chinese
bonds have been steady ; Japanese arc
firm at 105 and }:2, silver has hardened
to 27. 11 l-6d, but Rupee paper is easier at 061$'. India stock have moved
np with Consols, tho '6}..i per cent improving to 113 8-8.
London Bank shares have been quiet
dnring the past week, but tho teu-
dency keeps firm. Changes, however,
have been few and far between. In
the Home Rail market business has
again been on a very small sale; this
is, no doubt, owing chiefly to the political outlook, while tho activity of
Yankees and West Australians is also
partly responsible for the inaction
The settlement, howover, disclosed a
shrinkage in the bull account.
Kaffir market���Although no official
announcement of a settlement of the
differences between the British Government and the Transvaal has as yet
been made, very hopeful views huve
been prevalent throughout the wepk
while authorized statements���which,
however,boars some resemblance.of iw-
thorlty���have appeared stating that
President Kruger has made up his mind
to accept our terms. Dealings, however, have nut yet assumed any largo
proportion although tho market has
braced up strongly. The account was
easily arranged, it being very small.
Rand Mines, whicn are quoted ex-tliv.
ideud of 15 por share, have recovered
to 40 ex-d. Consolidated Gold Fields
are 7 6-8, East Rands, 7 1-6 and Rand-
fontain to i). Some weakness set iu
yesterday on the reports of further
movement of troops, but the reaction
���was very slight. These are the only
movements in this market of note.
Notwithstanding all that tho pessimists may say the activity in the West
Australian market shows no sign of
abatement , and upon balance the advance had made further progress in
most instances. It is true that shake
outs have occassional!}- taken place,
bnt this was a healthy movement, and
prevented the markot from getitng top
heavy.
On every reaction, however, a fresh
"lot of buyers made their app-aranoe
and their demand for Colonial and
Continental account has not slackened.
Rates at the settlement, as the result of the enormoUH business transacted during the past fortnight, were
high. Tho high olass mines have again
been lo tho front, Associated hnvo
again beiug the prominent feature at
��18% while Hannan's Brownhill.
i'13'ij, Boulder, Perseverance, ��16L��
British Westralia ��3 have been taken
up to a ���considerable extent, anil
Brownhill Extended have nearly
doubled their price at ��7. Lakeview,
o n which a dividend Of ��1 per share
has been deducted at ��96%, have reacted towards the last,also lvanhoe ; hut a
strong demand has sprung up for Lmi-
don and Globe ou the anticipation of
a good advance arid tbey are now liiis.
Od. These are about the principal
mines in this market. New Zealand
still rerrain in a stagnant condi':ou
and little or no business Is reported in
these shares.
Although the news from tho mining district from British Columbia
lias been considered good, yut npart
from that Lo Roi would have hardened, and British America Corpoiation
shares have also improved. In both
these shares a mnch more improtant
advance would be fully justified.
Velvets havo reacted, while Ymir and
Athabasca shew little change. In the
other mining markets little or no business lias been done. Copper bus declined slightly nnd Rio Tinto have declined chiefly on Paris sales,but American copper shares have been firmer,
Anaconda are recovering a temporary
H9t back, and   Utah have been strong.
Newfoundland copper, however, are
lower, while Mount Lyoils have recov-
ered.
Tho newspapers both here and cn
the Continent are taken up with the
affair of Dreyfus, and in Paris,in fact,
in almost every oafe on hears the affair
discussed. Until this and the Transvaal affair is over we cannot expect
nrnoli business in International securities.
Nowb oomes from Rossland that W.
A. Carlyle, superintendent of the lie
Roi mine and all the B. A. C. prop,
erties.has been offered thesuperintend-
ency of the celebrated   Rio   Tinto cop- |
per mines iu Spain   at a salary of 5000 j
pounds   sterling,   or     nearlv    $26,000
per year.    He is now   considering  the
proposition, and it is thought   ho   will j
accept it.     His salary is now JtJOOO pur
annum.    He was   formerly   Pro\ incial
mineralogist, and   in that place made
a fine reputation as a conservative,
able, conscientious mining man.
Pew young men have risen ho rapidly
as Mr. Carlyle. He now has a worldwide fame.

M. de Yarennes, Managing Director
of the Certain? Gold and .Mining Co.,
Limited, arrived in Golden on Wednesday in connection with tbe business of the Oompany, says the New
Era. Among other things be arranged the completion of the purchase of
the property on Canyon Creek now being deveh ped by the company, namely
the Porphyry and Iron Hill, aud Eagle
Cliff olaims, The purchase money of
this property was about $!*,000, and
the amount involved has been duly
paid to the oredlt of the lucky owners,
Hon. F. W. Aylmer and L. H. Estell.
Development work progresses steadily. No. 1 tunnel is in 40 feet and
No. 2 tunnel is in 28 feet. Both tunnels have a showing of ore, the pay-
chute in No. 2 tunnel being Jilo feet
in toickiifss. A winter camp will
now he put in and the number of workmen doubled so as to push ou development we.k as rapidly ��s possible. If
the results of this are satisfactory it is
proposed lo build a road between Golden and the mine and to ship ore regularly to tho Hall Mines Smelter at Nelson. Mes'iv. De Varum-H, T. A.Knowl-
nn, and E. A. Haggen, the company's
engineer visited the property on Wednesday, and will co to the Certainty
mine on Fifteen Mile creek tomorrow.

Fred Robbins, consulting engineer of
the Mann syndicate, is at tbe North
.Star mine making an examination of
the property. Tlm diamond drill from
the M. C. Unlock Manufacturing
Company is new on its way to the
mine. It is the intention of the company to materially increase its force
and to take out a large amount of ore
for shipment as soon as the railroad
is completed. A new bunk house,
boarding house and other necessary
buildings are now being erected,
*   ���   ���
��� Tbo development which is being
done on mining properties in the vicinity of Fort Steele is most gratifying,
and the work In B7ery instance is productive of good results, says the Fort
Steele Prosepctor. It is said that more
work is being done during the present season than ever before in the history of the district. Continued development will attract people here who
are anxious to invest in mines having
merit. Inquiries arc received every
day regarding the mining ou'look.
Up to the present time there have I
been but few properties upon which
work enough bas been done to deter- ,
mine their worth, out now thero are
several developed to a point where they
can be shown to intending investors.
The mining interests of the district i
were never better than at the present
time, and inside of another twelve
months Fort Steele will attract as
much attention as is now being given
to West Kootenay and other sections
of the Province.
