Emperor's Palace Closed.
Rennes, Sopt. 11. -The judges of the
DreyfuH court-martial today by mutual
agreement expressed to the President
of the Republic through Gen. IiQCDS,
the commander of the armv corps nt
Rennes, their siuoore desire that Drevfus would uot be submitted to a fresh
degradation. Another report says
Hint the court-martial signer! a formal
recommendation for mercy this atter-
110011. Its ohjeot is to eliminate tho
degradation feature of the puaishment,
The recommendation was handed to
Goneral Lucas for President Loubet.
When M. Labori's secretary informed
Dreyfus of this action he was greatly
affected and said: "I still have hopes."
Paris Sopt. IL���The Anrove publishes this morning a long letter from
11. Em lie Zola, the novelist, which is
-pendant to his famous "J'A.oouse"
letter in the early stages of the revision movement, It concludes as follows
perate conflicts. Public opinion, it
adds, is quite prepared for eventuality
of Dreyfns pardon.
Berlin, Sept. 11.��� The private agitation against the Paris Exposition is
beginning lo tinil vigorous  expression.
The Vossiohe Zeitung says this evening that a onmher of the largest German firms hnve pledged themselves to
withdraw. The Berliner Tageblatt
says the Berlin Counoil at its next session will consider a special motion to
withdraw the Berliu municipal exhibit. On the other hand the correspondent of the Associated Press learns ou
the highest authority that the Gorman
Government considers the Dreyfns
oase now, under all conditions, done
with, and does not intend to relinquish
offioi il representation at tho Exposition. The olbeials responsible for this
assurance added that it would be
borne in mind that,despite the Dreyfns
c.ise, the official relations between the
two Governments had steadily improved during recent years.

THE MINERS PROTECTED! HILLYER OPPOSES HIM.
"The Ministry which its agents have
betrayed, the Ministry which had the
weakness to leave big children with
muddled minds, to play with matches
nnd knives, the Ministry which has
forgotten that to govern is to foresee,
lies only to hasten to act if it does not
wish to abandon to the good pleasure
of Geimany tho iifth act of the drama,
tin' denouement beforo which every
En '.. o.h i ii a n suou.d [Tblll-le,
"His for   the   Government   to play
this  fifth   act as soon as  possible,   in
order to prevent its coming to ns from
abroad.     The Government can procure
the documents.    Diplomacy bus settled
greater difficulties   than  this.    Whenever it ventures  to ask for   the   document   enumerated    in   tho  bordereau
they will be given and that will he tbe
fait aoauyea   (new   fact)   which   will
necessitate a second revision before the
court  of  cassation,   which  would   be
this time I hope, fully   informed  and
would quash the verdict sans renvoi in
tho  plenitude   of   its foreign  majesty 1
but if the Government were   to   recoil
against the'defenders   of   justice ond
truth   will do  what is necessiuy. Not
one of us will desert  his  post. Proof,
invincible  proof, we shall finally  end
by   obtaining.   On   November 23  we
shall be at  Versailles.    My trial  will
recommence, inasmuch as it   is to recommence in all its fullness, if  meanwhile justi-e is not done, we will again
help to do it.    My beloved, my valient
Labori, whose houor   has  but increased, will, therefore, pronounce  at Versailles, the address   which he was unable to pronounce at  Rennes, aud it is
verv   simple.    Nothing  will   be lost.
As for ma  I shall not  be  silent.    We
will  merely   have   to  utter the truth
without fear of injuring me, for I   am
ready to pay for it   with my liberty
and my blood.   Before tho Seine assize
court,   I   swore   to   the innocence  of
Dreyfus, I swear it   before  tbo  entire
world which   now proclaims  it   with
me,   and   I  repeat   truth   ia  on   the
march.   Nothiig    will   stop    it.    At
Rennes it has  just   made   a  giant's
stride.    I need no longer have any fear
except that I may see   it arrive in  a
thunder clap of the avenging  nemesis
devasting  the   fatherland,   unless  we
hasten ourselves to make it shine forth
under the clear sun of France.'''
Berlin, Sept. 11.���The National Zei-
tnng says it has been decided that
hereafter the privato apartments of the
Emneror here and at Potsdam, will be
closed to the publio, even in the absence of their majesties. The decision
to close the apartments of Emperor
William of Germtny to the public is
probably duo to the fact that a witness
testified before the Dreyfns court-
martial that he had seen a newspaper,
tho Libre Parole, in Emperor William's bedroom nt Potsdam, and that
on the paper were certain words in
German meaning, "Dreyfus has heen
arrested.'' The correspondent of the
Associated Press at Berlin, however
was assured that this could not be
possibly truo as the Emperor did not
read newspapers except in the form of
marked dippings.
Raand Company Notified That Men Will

There Was an Irregularity.
Newcastle-on-Tyne, Sept. IL���W.
D. Stevous, a ship owner and Royal
Commissioner to the Paris Exhibition,
has declared that as a result of the
Dreyfus verdict he will not put his
toot on French soil. He adds that lots
of his countrymen will do the same.
Several important firms havo already
declined to exhibit at Paris.
London, Sept. 11.���A demonstration
of sympathy for Dreyfns is projected
for next Sunday afternoon in Hyde
Park.
Now York,Sept. 11.���At the meeting
today of Methodist Preachers' Association of New York resolutions were
unanimously passed deploring "the
shameful miscarriage of justice in the
recent condemnation of Capt. Dreyfns."
Pretoria, Sept. 11.���The   British diplomatic    agent,     Mr.    Conyngham
Greene has made  a   representation  to
the TraiiBvaal   Government  regarding
the recent arrest of Mr. Pakeman, editor of the Transvaal   Leader,  ana   the
Government is to send a reply.    President Kruger has issued a notice warning Burghers who  intend to go shooting beyond the River Limpope,  which
forms for many   miles  the  northwest
nnd north limit of  tbe Tranvsaal, thut
they will bo severely   punished, unless
they first obtain  permission from   the
local   authorities.   The    tension    remains   high,   pending   ihe   receipt of
Mr.   Ohamherlain's despaeh.    It is asserted ou excellent   authority that  the
Transvaal Government with a view of
keeping   the   miniug  industry goinjr,
has decided to protect it in overy  possible way.    As a first step the Govern
incut has notified the  Rand companies
that their mon will  receive protection
so long  as  they remain  peaoefnl  and
shonld war  unfortunately occur,   the
men will be given  a  reasonable  time
to leave the country, if they desire.   It
is officially announced that the  article
in The Gold  about the  confiscation of
claims and mines  belonging to  people
convicted of   treasons   or   conspiracy,
against the  state, winch was last year
eliminated,will be reeuforced.   The article also gives tbe  Government power
to order that the mines be worked, and
provides that, if tbis iustruotion is disregarded,    the  Government may work
through    its    owu      agents.     Commandant   General Joubert denies that
the War Department is ordering heavy
ordnance and  rifles.    He declares thut
he is anxious for the  preservation   of
peace.
Washington, Sept. ll.���It is believed
that when Congress assembles there
will be a considerable agitation for this
Government to abandon its part iu the
Paris exhibition. It is known that
expressions hostile to the exposition
quoted from Senator Stewart are very
widely sympatized with and it is
thought that if the conviction of Dreyfus is permitted to stand, thore will
be very little friendly feeling for
Franco among members of either Houso
or Senate.
Washington, D. C, Sept. 11.���Representative Grosvenor of Ohio, has
just returned from Paris. Sneaking of
the Dreyfus case he said: "It is a
good thing the appropriation for the
exposition has Leen made. Congress
wonld hardly be iu the mood now to
appropriate money.
Chicago, Sept. 11.���A monster mass
meeting to protest against the sentencing of Oaptain Dreyfus is being
planned in Chicago. Prominent Obi-
oagoaus are said to be conoerned in the
movement which was started yesterday
at a mass mooting held in the Jewinh
section of the oity.
Tho Mothodist ministers' association
of Chicago, at the regular meeting today put itself of record as protesting
against the injustice of the verdict in
the Dreyfus case.
Johannesburg, Sept. 11.���Tho officials
of the Netherlands Railway Company,
have been notified to hold themselves
iu readinessoto guard the line in event
of war. The Italians in the Transvaal
have decided to remain neutral, should
hostilities arise. The Tranvnal Hollanders here, held a meeting today and
adopted resolutions of sympathy with
the Transvaal Government, pledging
their support.
FIREMEN KILLED.
Cincinnati, Sept. 11.���Two members of the fire department were killed
by gases iu a vault today. Monroe
Dent, aged four, fell into the vault in
the rear of his fathers house in Clinton street and the flro department was
appealed to for aid. Thomas Bland
and Harry Heinsheimer responded
with a ladder and descended, were
suffocated by the gases. The bodies
were all recovered.
Paris, Sept. IL���It is unaerstood
that President Loubet opposes such
an extreme course as', prosecuting Mercier or tho other generals. Ho is rather
inclined to the conciliatory policy extending even to a pardon for Dreyfus.
M. Demange has been blamed for
conooding so many points in his speech,
but it appears that ho did so in the
hope of winning another waverer
ainoiiR tho judges, who, however, final'y joined the majority on condition
that the verdict would be accompanied
with the provision as to extenuating
circumstances.
Paris, Sep. 11.���The Journal des de
Bats says it hopes that after the Rennes verdiot the sentiment of humanity
will find scope evon  in the most   des-
GETTING THE FLEET OUT.
Sault Ste Marie,   Mioh,   Sept. 11.���
All precautious for   averting accidents
to the delayed float; whioh is crowding
through  St.   Mai'y's  river  are  being
takon.   Capt.   Davis,   ot   tho   revenue
outter Morrill, has good  control of the
sitnation.   Hay Lake,which is 14 mileB
long,   was dotted today with  bunchos
of steamers and towB for nearly tho en-
tiro length of   its channel.    The  tows
are gutting under way at safo distance
from each other, and tho long   proces
sion is neoesaarily   a   slow  ono   until
deep water   is  reached.    By   to-night
tho entire fleetjof vessels will be in the
rase for the lower landports  and  evi-
denca of the blockade  will  have vanished.

Paris, Sept. 11.���Examining Magistrate Valles, having confronted Sebastian Faure and two companions with
tho witness of the fight in the Hue des

tinned his argumont in bohalf of Venezuela before the Anglo-Venezuelan
boundary aribtration commission
claiming the Spanish title to Guiana
was established before the arrival tf

with the ruleB of law which he considered applicable to the cause.
At the meeting of the City Council
last night Aid. Thomson alone was
conspicuous by his absenoe. The City
Solicitor and Engineer wero also present. Business commenced with the
reading of the report of th.' Finance
Committee. A number of bills and accounts were recommended for payment
amounting to over 13,800, the prinai-
pal items beiug $680.55 for sidewalks
to Say ward & Co., $526 and $581.90
to McBeatb & Co., for sewers. The report was received without discussion.
The report of the Police Commissioners (which has already been published
in The Miner) was then read. The report was received aud the Mayor aud
City Engineer were requested to take
immediate steps to remedy the defects
in the jail which were coraplaiued of
by the Police Commissioners.
Aid. Beer said tbat many complaints
had beeu received about stray animals
and wanted to know what tho pound
keeper was doing. The mayor throught
the latter official had not been too
particular in attending to his business
of late. It was resolved on the motion
of Aid. Beer that the services of the
present pound keeper be dispensed
with and that the Mayor be authorized
to engage another one. and that the
by-law with reference to stray animals
be rigidly enforced.
Mr. Bradley addressed the Council in
refereuce to a temporary sewer that
bad been suggested in Viotoria street.
He was atraid that owing to tho extent of rook a temporary contrivance
would not be Batisfaotory. The house
holders had expressed their willingness
to share a portion of the expense of
laying a proper sewer.
Aid. Fletcher Beemed to think
that exponse was the chief obstacle. The City had already spent a
considerable sum on sewers, Aid. Beer
would like to see lthe sower made even
if there was a deficit in funds. On the
motion of Aid. Hillyer the question
was referred to tho Board of Works
with power to act.
A petition from several householders
praying for the grading of Baker street
from Railway to Slocan streets was
rend. Tbe petition was referred to
the Board of Works.
A petition from the residents in Park
street calling attention to tho danger
arising from blasting operations and
begging the City to protect them was
read. On the motion of Aid. Fletcher
the petition was referred to the Chief
of Polioe with instructions to see that
if auy nuisance was being committed
tbe police should abate the   same.
A letter from J. J. Driscoll calling
attention . to tho drainage in front of
bis residence was referred to the Board
of Works.
A letter from E. C. Arthur in reference to tho off cots of a storm in tho autumn of last year which caused some
damoge to his property (adjoining the
now Hudson's Bay building) was re-
reived and filed.
A letter from D. O. Lewis pointing
out that Hoover street at tho juuctlon
of Josephine street wan impassible owing to excavations for sand made by
contractors, also that a side walk there
would be convenient, was referred to
the City Euginecr to report on.
Mr. Ritchie's application for a side
walk from tho corner of Ward and
Latimer streets to Mill street was referred to the Board of Works.
Mr. Pfeifer wrote asking to havo a
hole in front of his house on Carbonate
street filled up. This was also referred
to the Board of Works with power to
aot.
A tender from J. A. Laughlin for
putting in electric light poles at $3.50
pei pole (tbis price including tho digging of the holes at least six feet deep
and the delivery of the poles) was accepted
Aid. Beer then proposed that the
house go into a committee of the whole
to consider the new by-laws with Aid.
Fletcher as chairman.
Aid. Fletcher moved as an amendment  that  Aid.   McKillop   take the
i chair, but this was lost   and the origi-
I nal motion carried.
Aid.Fletcher then took the chair and
the  Council resolved itself into a com-
I mittee of the whole.
The first by-law considered waa that
for tho mad tax. Aid. Hillyer Beemed
to think that assessed property owners
should bo exempted, Aid. Beer said
that as the City was already lightly
taxed be did not sue why. auy exemption should be made. The tax had been
included in the estimate for revenue.
Aid. Kirkpatrick moved tho by-law
be reported complete. Aid. Hillyer
moved an amendment that the clause
"all male persons" be struck ont but
as no one, seconded the amendment the
original motion was carried.
The by-law restricting the Bale of
goods on Sunday waB then, on the mo-
tiou of Aid. McKillop moved to be
read clause by clause.
The motion was lost, the voting being as follows Aid. McKillop, B"er,
aud Kirkpatrick ayes.aud Mayor Neelands, Aid. Fletcher and Hillyer, noes.
The result being a tie, Aid. Fletcher
had a casting vote which he gave
against the motion.
Aid.   Beer   begged    to say   a   tew
words.    He had been accused of  being
against a wide open town.    If by that
was meant the keeping open   of  noisy
and gambling houses on   Sundays,    he
seriously     waa   against  a   wide open
town.    Aid.    Hillyer    protested    that
Aid.Beer reflected strongly on the conduct of the police ;   he had no business
to  do   so.    Aid.    Fletcher  considered
that the good souse of the people should
be first   considered  before   taking any
further stopa.    Only   tho   small   fruit
vendors would   be injured by   the bylaw, and thoy did   nobody auy   harm.
He  considered   it   a   narrow  minded
grandmotherly,  piece    of  legislation.
Aid. McKillop thought  that tho small
business houses   shonld   follow the example   of   the    larger    houses.    Aid.
Fletohor said that the question of convenience to outside people who come iu
for the week end   ouly, should bo considered.    He   did not think Aid. Beer
was honest for he   did   not  go to   tho
root of tho matter for he exempted   liquor and tobacco; he was only playing
to the  gallery.
Aid. Beer said he was opposed to all
Sunday trading save for necessities.
Ala TTlatohotr <�������.��� -_K,J moias mere
was no motion before the committee
they proceed to business. On the motion of Aid. Beer that the City Solicitor give his opinion on the by-law as
to whether it restricted the sale of
lunches and meals, Mr. Galliher said
that in his opinion "meals" wero
"goods" and therefore would be restricted. Ho thought therefore the bylaw would not be good as it was too
wide. Aid. Beer wanted to move an
amended by-law but the chairman ruled that he could not do so in committee.
The by-law for closing barbers' shops
was then read. Aid. Hillyer moved
that the by-law be read six months
hence. If the barbers wanted it they
could mutually agree without the
need of legislation. Aid. Hillyer's
amendment was then put and lost.
Aid. Hillyer protestod that the bylaw was a gross piece of bigotry and
an injustice. The motion that the bylaw be reported as consideied was put
and carried, Aid. Fletcher and Hillyer dissenting.
By-law 53 for nnmbenug the houses
and naming the si recta was then read.
Aid. Hillyer objected to the by-law on
the ground of expense. Aid. Fletcher
said the scheme would cost at least $250
aud at present there was uo immediate demand f ir it. At tne present moment there wero a number of houses
which would be includod in tho soheme
and which would shortly bo removed.
Tbe City wanted every dollar for publio works and not for luxuries. Aid.
Beer said that if the streets were numbered there would be a groat convenience in collecting accounts. Aid. Hillyer said that next year tho Oity
wonld not havo so many sewers to
put in aud then they could add on a
few "frills." Ho moved that the bylaw stand o'er nntil prices could bo
quoted for painting the numbers.
The motion was carried.
The Sunday closing by-law was then
brought up again, amended by the
City Solicitor. Aid. Hillyer moved
that it be road this day six months.
Aid. Beer begged that the by-law be
read so that the Counoil oould hear
it. Tho motion was carried Aid. Beer,
McKillop and Kirkpatrick nays, and
Aid. Fletcher, Mayor Neelands and
Hillyer, ayes.
Aid. Fletcher gave his casting
vote for Aid. Hillyer's motion.
The committee then rose and Oonnoil resumed the sitting. Aid. Beer then
moved that by-law 41) (the road tax
by-law ) be read   a   third   time.    Aid.

Kingston, Jamaica,   Sept.   11.���The
Bush   negroBB of Suramin, Dutch Gui ���
ana have just been calling attention to
thomselves iu a rather sensational   exhibition   of savagery   aocording  to  a
newspaper  published  at Nickerie,   in
that colony.    These  poople are  today
what the Maroons of  Jamica  were  a
century or more ago,   with this difference, that they are  descendants of fugitive slaves, who havo completely relapsed into savagery making Goebjaba
and the  other territories occupied   by
thora^counterparts of equatorial Africa.
The Dutch Government long ago   concluded to let them alone.    The trouble
that has just brought them iuto prominence, grew out  of u fishing   dispute.
Sorae^of their neighbors   poisoned   the
fish in a creek  that  appears  to  havo
been common to both parties. The Goo-
jabaus thereupon went ou tho watpath
but apparently got the worst of  it, for
their village was burned and they lost
six wairiors killed and many wouuded.
It Is  not   improbable  that   later   advices will bring  further  details  of  a
general   scrimmagej in   that  distriot.
The incident is important   as furnishing the Dutch authorities a pretext  to
intervene and bring  tho natives under
subjection  to  the laws  of the colony
whose  peace  they  occasionally   menace.
THE   STORM   IN   NEW   YORK
Mow   York,   Sept.     11.���A    strong
soutneast  wind, at   times almost   approaching hurricane velocity prevailed
in this vioinity for  Beveral Jhonrs tbis
afternoon und did^considerable damage
to shipping in  the  harbor   aud  property ou Staten   Island  and sovoral   of
the towns along  the   Jersey coast. At
Highlands several  houses were  blown
down  and  Sandlass hotel  was  badly
damaged.    At  Perth  Amboy,   several
buildings were blown  down chimneys
blown off and treeB uprooted at a number of other   New  Jersey   towns.    At
Tottenville,   a   number  of    buildings
were destroyed.    At  5:30  o'clock  the
wind reached a velocity of 65 miles an
hour    and   several  small   boats  were
smaihod   in  tho  lower    harbor.    The
float of the Staten Island  Yacht  Oln
at Stapleton was   wrecked^ as  were
sail boat and a barge belonging to  tin
Ocean Yaoht club.    The yachts iu  the
Horse Shoe did not  appear  to   suffer.
The Shamrock and her tender were apparently    unharmed.    Several    small
yachts off Atlantic Highlands lost their
anchor but with one or, two exceptions
were brought up before  being  carried
out on the beach.
FRENCH   MISSION   WIPED   OUT.
Tripoli, Sopt. 11. ���A courier who
has arrived here reports that tho
French mission, headed by H. Foureau
and Major Lamy, has beeu annihilated. He says the mission was attacked
by an immense body of tho Tuarogs,
who after suffering terrible loss, killed
all the members of the mission by
force of arms. Official dispatches re-
oeived in Paris from Biscay, 214 miles
southeast of Algiers, March 23, said
tho Foureau aud Lamy expedition arrived at Agabios months ago. This
setting at rest a report circulated tho
day previous iu Algiers, that a party
of Tuarogas recently attacked a European expedition whioh was on its way
to air in the Sahara, inflict in;: a loss
of 100 men, killed on the expedition

was then said that the expedition at-
taoked must have been  the  Foureau-
Lamy expedition.

THE   COLUMBIAN'S JOKE.
Our    excellent  contemporary,   The
New Wetstminster Columbian, bas au
excellent joke on The Miner and ou The
Viotoria Globe: on The Miner in that
it deceived itself over the st .terncut
of a very obvious fact, and on The
Globe in thnt it allowed itself to be
deceived by the deceit. When it stated, or, which is quite the same thing,
wheu it quoted to endorse the statement of another, that the Government
was in no danger, it merely meant,
what every one knew, that the Governmeut had a majority and was consequently safe. The Miner built np on
this very innocent foundation a
"huge fake sensation,'' and saw in it
some "mysterious ulterior reason,"
to wit, that the Lieutenant-Governor
wua standing between the Government
and harm. What nonsense this is,
thinks our contemporary. The assumption that the Government is in a minority "is, of ennrsp, directly contrary
to the facts; which, being remembered, makes still more ridiculous thsir
flamboyant mare's nest about the Lieutenant-Governor. "
It is pleasant to see The Columbian
enjoy its laugh so much ; but we pray
that it \ii\l be good enough to hold
its sides for a moment until we can
see whether the matter is as funny ay
it pretends. Wo iuvited our contemporary to put itself right if we were
mistaken in the inference drawn from
its remark, that the Government was
not iu danger because His Honor was
protecting it. The ouly explanation it
makes is that the Government is not
in danger for the reason that it is
'int. in iiiiiiiini'itv. The Mr,... lm.i ������
sinned that it was ami is. If tlie assumption is wrong, the inference falls,
of conrse ; if right, our contemporary
has made no explanation, and its hilarity cornea under the suspicion of being feigned.
At the close of the session the ar
ties stood���Ministerialists, 2(i; Opposition, lfi. Wo have not hoard that -any
of the latter have deserted. Of the
Ministerialists, Mr. Martin says he i��
against the Government and Mr. Higgins says he is aguinst the Government Here aro two certain defections.
Mr. Helgensen says he will oppose the
Government if certain legislation is
not repea'ed; Mv. Macpherson says
he will oppose if that legislation is
uot retained. In the fipe of suoh opposite positions, the Government is
bound to lose one of these. Without
looking farther, we get tho result that
nineteen are for the Government and
miueteen will vote to defeat it
With the Speaker in the chair, tho
Government is thus loft in a minority
of one. Giving it tho Speaker's vote
there would be a tie, and we have
never heard that, in any British dominion, under British responsible government, the affairs of a country were
carried on with parties equally divided. Perhaps The Columbian has, and
it may have the goodness to enlighten
us. It might be added that other Ministerialists are understood to be disinfected, but it is not necessary to the
present purpose to inquire further,
The Government is not in a position
to control the Legislature, and that is
enough.
The Columbian knows this, nud His
Honor the Lieutenant-Governor knows
it.    When,   therefore,     it  says    that
the   Government   is   not in danger it
must have  some "mysterious   ulterior
reason" for thinking  so.    What can it
be   if it is not its coufidcncc in the expectation that the Lieutenant-Governor
will protect   it���thut   there   is nn understanding that   tho   Government   is
not  to be disturbed'.'   Who else can insure its safety until the  House   meets,
uud who else can  compel   the Government to hasten or  delay   the meeting?
These   are   times  of fresh   and   startling developments.    Since Tho Columbian gave its   sigh   of relief over  the
safety of the Government, young   Mr.
Mclnnes and Mr. Martin huve  met on
a  Labor   platform    and   indulged   in
what Tho  Victoria  Times   very properly    condemns     as    Inflammatory
speech.    Evidently they nre looking to
the  organisation of a party that is   to
bo subject  to  their   own   leadership,
The Columbian may  have been consoled with tho  thought  that the  present
Opposition   would   not, be  allowed   to
endanger tWi life nf the  Government!
what does it think of the suggestion of
the Nanaimo  demonstration, that its
life is being  prolonged   in   order that
Mr. Warren Kennedy writes t<��� a
Toronto paper to commena the Rev.
Mr. Gillespie for condemning tbe Passion   Play  as  an    impious  travesty
Better men thnu Mr. Kennedy and
Mr. Gillespie have  witnosnel the Pos-
sinii Play without any suspicion of a
shock. They >houll tutor themselves
to allow others to bold their views of
sacred things while entertaining their
own.
"We are glad of an opportunity to
express our pleasure at the growing
popularity and observance of Labor Day
as a RevelBtoke holiday," says Tne
Mail of that thriving town. It was a
sad enough affair here; not because ot
the rain merely, but because no oue
bad the least heart for celebrating it.
We have made it the fashion here to divide off. We take Dominion Dny, and
ask Rossland tn joiuns; Rossland takes
Labor Day, and wc are supposed to
give them a hand. It is getting more
doubtful all the time whether it would
not be much more sensible for each to
celebrate for themselves, and when
we have reached the conclusion that it
would be fat from clear; we can then
participate as wc would like in what
ought to be one of tho most successful
holiday celebrntions of tne year,
At "one o'clock noon," so reads the
notice in the Official Gazette, on Monday, the sivth day of November next,
Mr. D. A. MoBeath, "Collector of
Votes for rhis Hiding, will open a
Court of Revision, for the purposo of
hearing and determining any or all
objections against the retention of any
names on tlio Register cf Voles for
the Nelson Riding of West Kootenay
Bleotoral District." There is much
n.-Hvity 1,11 ���ver the Province in respect to voters' lists, and oue is almost
driven to the conclusion that a general
electiou is in u,.   ,.;�� ,.���.i   ���,������ _,.
oipitated any time soon. This suggests
that those who aro entitled to the
franohise should take pains to have
their names entered and to sen that
they duly appear on the list as presented at the Court of Revision. If
thero is to be an electiou shindy, every
qualified citizen of snirit will desire
to take a hand in it. Register, and,
watch the revision.

Heretofore the Institute has had  its

membership of over three hundred.
But tbere bus always been a big membership in the West nnd it was thought
ndvisable to have a meeting here in order that these members oould attend
without the necessity of making loan
trips mid losing considerable time. As
ihis is tbe busy season for mining men
tin' attendance of members from the

Bentative of the membership of the

A meeting of unusual interest was
held yesterday afternoon iu St. Paul's
Presbyterian church, under tbe auspices of the Woinens' Foreign ���Missionary Society. The object nf the meeting wns to meet, with nnd hear ail address from Mrs. Jell'ray, of Toronto,
the secretary nl' the YY. V. M. S.,of lhe
Prtsbytetian ohurch in Canada. Mrs.
Jeffray has been in Ilin West several
weeks visiting the numerous missions
and training schools undei the care of
the Sooiety throughout Manitoba,
the North West Territories and British
Columbia.
After devotional   exercises, conducted by the pastor,    Mrs, Jeffray was introduced, nnd   spoke   to   the    wcnieii
present:   about   the    ninny   phnses  of
work which is being done by the Society for tho women   in   India,    China,
Formosa   and   among the  Indians  of
Canada.    Tho   Zurna   work   of   India
is of particular interest  and   opens up
a vast field in whioh mission must  be
conducted by   women for women  and
this appeals in a peculiar   way to  the
sympathies     of   the members  of   the
Society.
In dealing with the work being   carried on nmo'g our Indians the speaker
compared tbe conditions as sho found
liem on her recent visit to tho  Indian
Schools nnd mission, with those which
existed   nn the occasion of   a  previous
visit mado some years  ago.    At  every
point tho advance has beeu remarkable
nnd the result s have been   most satisfactory.     Mrs. Jeffray gnvc some idea
of tho extent of  the Sooiety's missionary   enterprise   when  she stated that
some $65,000, will be  required to meet
the expense of the   current  year.    Tho
address wns listened   to   with   marked
interest  and  was thoroughly   edjoyed
by the .'urge  imiiher of ladies present,
ninny of whom remained at   the  close
of tbe   meeting   to meet Mrs.   Jeffray
ind Miss McLaren,of tlie Indian schorl
at Biitle, Man ,    who has   been   with
Mrs. Jeffray ou her return trip.

MULLEN COMMITTED KOK ARSON
Press Bureau Censured by Judge
Spinks For Misleading Reports.
Grand Forks. Sept. 11 -Chas Mullen
was committed for trial on tho 10th,
charged with arson, in connection
with the destruction of the Hotel
Columbia last July.
W. A. Macdonald, Q. C of Nelson,
appeared  with   Messrs.     Miller    and
Morrison for the defense. Mr. McLeod,
of Midway, acted as Crown prosecutor.
The defense claim that the sensational
disclosures promised by tho Crown did
not materialise.   Boyce was called for
cross-examination.       John       Watson,
lute bartender   at   the   Yale, for cross-
examination and   Robert   Cameron for
cross-examination    and   examined in
chief,   Tho case  for   the   Crown  has
uot   yet   been    completed.     Cameron
swore that he had   lived   in a   tent In
Brand Porks  witn  ono   Stnbbs,   The
witness,   according   to his   testimony,
paid   Stnbbs $100 but maintained   that
ho nevor asked   Stnbbs to do a "job."
He .sowed |300   from Mullen,   retaining one half   for   himself.    Stnbbs   ho
said, was iu   Rosalia,   Wash.,   nt   the
time ho (tbe  witness)  loft   thero  recently for  Grand Porks.   Royoe under    cross-examination     contradicted
ninny of bis previous statements.    The
matter having been  brought up by the
defense, the wituess  was severely  reprimanded   by   the court for tho cowardly  assault upon  Walter   Miller,  a
citizen of  Grand  P.rks, on Thursday
evening,     Royce  was   a   ptisoner-at-
largo at tbe time.    Tho   witness swore
Chas  Mullen gave bim $180   the   Friday  before  the   tiro.    Then   be  went
to Cameroon   who  refused   to   do  the
job unless the  fnll  amount  was  paid
over.    Royco oame   baok and  returned
Hie money to Mullen, but explained to
the lntter that the job would   be  done
that night,   Witnoss added that he and
Cameron   went  to  Columbia   to  look
over the ground, never intending.however, to sot  lire to the hotel.    He said
he   had   several     conversations   with
Cameron  who   declined that the  first
conversation he bad with   Royco about
the   matter,   occurred   on   the way to
Columbia.   On  the  way  back  Royce

this onse the contractors will leave at
least one-eigth of the street for ordinary trallic.
.\ correspondent desires The Miner to
draw attciilinn to tbe prevalence of lhe
loathsome and digesting habit nf promiscuous exo'ctoralion in the pnblio
streets. For fear of offending a number of snbsorihers it would be unwise
to publish nil his diatribes against this
obji'ciioiiable peculiarity of somo people in tins Western Hemisphere. Unfortunately this correspondent entered
into an altercation with an individual
who exuded his saliva uncommonly
near the objector's person, and wns
immediately teferred to by the offender
as an Englishman. Onr correspondent suggests the passing of bylaws preventing tlie offence in public
as lias been dono in New York, nlso
Spokane.    Why not?

Iu an interview in the Ottawa Free

Mr. Eddy:
"There is room in the Northwest

25 years there will he more people

development and all they want is encouragement. ���
"Nobody knows the oountry unless
they have seen it. An instance of this
is in the town of Eernie. Last year
there were hut three huts ; now 1,000
people reside there.'' Speaking of thu
Crow's Nest Pass Railway, he said it

The Board  of   Trade   Almost   Had  a
Quorum Last Night.
The majority of   the members of the
South Kootenay Board of  Trade   seem
to be   quite   satisfied   with   the  way
things aro goiug.    They   have  become
so  inocul ted with this idea that they
never turn  out   to attend   a   meeting
of the Board  at  which the   welfare of
the   Oity   might   be  advanced.    Last
night was to be  the  date of the regular monthly.    Ten is a  quorum.    One
hour after the time at which the meeting was supposed   to  open   there wero
present only eight,   viz., J.   Roderick
Robertson,  George Kydd,   J.   M. Lay,
H.   J. Evans,   David   Morris,   T.   G.
Procter, H.   R.    Bellamy   Bnd   Y.   W.
Swannell.    The Prosideut  hecamo discouraged and commenced   to  make  a
nent little speech as a  prelnde  to  an
announcement   of  adjournment  when
J. Y. Weir walked in and cut the per
oration short.   Frosh hopes were raised
that one more moraber might be secured.   The Miner representative remeni
bered having seen a  member  in what
seemed to be a permanent position on
the top of a counter, so he was sent out
on  a foraging   expedition.    But tho
member  had   meauwihle   put ont  his
lights    and  gone    home.    A   search
among adjacent business houses  failed
to scare up another   member  and  tho
scribe returned to the   meeting, minus
the much-needed man   who   had  paid
his dues.  As there was nothing else for
it the meeting adjourned sine  die.    A
mouth from last night tho   Board will
meet to decide how   it   will  entertain
the members of tho Canadian  Mining
Institute, who will then be once  more
in the Eastern home.    But   they  may
come again in a few years.

the  Foot
Receptiou   Given
Guards at Albany.
In speaking of tbe recent visit of the
Gov.-General's Foot Guards from Ottawa, to Albany, N. Y., The Albany
(N. V.) Times Union says:
"At this time, when international
disputes are iuvolving the attention of
statesmen of all nations and sentiments
of intense rivalry are engendered
among all peopleB, the cordial intermingling of the soldiery of Her Majesty the Queen with the militia and
citizens of the capital city of the Empire state is a most gratifying spec-
taole.
"In every manner possible byword
and deod, the members of the Tenth
battallion and the citizens of Albany
havo endeavored to make the welcome
of the Foot Guards of the Governor-
General of Canada cordial, and their
stay in this city pleasant. The Canadians .have expressed their extreme gratification at the reception accorded them
in terms of intense cordiality, aud
their visit here cannot but promote the
growing feeling of friendliness among
the oitizens of the two greatest divisions of the eastern world, and between
their respective Governments representing the Anglo-Saxon race.
"Today the oity of Albany is wide
open to these Canadians. Governor
Roosevelt, through his military secretary, bas extended to them a welcome
to tha Btate, and this afternoon the
soldiery of a rival nation are permitted
to inspect one of the largest ordnance
stations of the Government in their
visit to the Watervliet arsenal. In return, the Canadian visitors havo givon
the people of Albany an exhibition of
their most elaborate drill in the trooping of the color in Washington Park.''
Referring to tho visit of the Guards
the Albany Argus commences a lengthy
aud complimentary article thus:
"Three hundred and twenty red-coated
Canadians descended on the town yesterday morning, and are now enjoying the best that the hospitality of old
Albany can afford. Thoy are the Foot
Guards of the Governor-General of
Canada, and their home is in Ottawa,
but thoy received such a welcome as
uo regiment of British soldiers bas
been accorded since the flag of England
floated over the blockhouse on lower
Broadway. It is said that the Governor-General's Foot Guards is the fhst
body of Canadian soldiers that has visited this city, and their British uniform and military tactics attraot not a
little attention. All told, they aro a
fine lot of men and exceptionally well
trained for a volunteer regiment,"
SEKIOUa FIRE   IN FRANCE.
A DISTINGUISHED   DIVINE.
Rev. Prof. Hammill, of Belfast, Ireland,   came    in   from   Rossland  last
Marseilles, Sept. 11.���Extenssivo
fires aro raging in the woods near Marseilles and Toulon at least ten mileB of
forest being in flames. A number of
chateaus have been destroyed and others are threatened.
Paris, Sept. 11.���A serious fire
broke ont this evening in the Rue Dar-
boy near *th�� church of St. Joseph,
which was recently invaded hy an
arcbist rioters. A largo warehouse,
filled with upholsterer's material, Iris
already been destroyed. When the police attempted to clear the streets they
were hooted by roughs and several lire-
men were severely injured.
Paris, Sept. 11.���Late in the evening
an attempt was made by a band of men
shouting "Vive L'Anarcny" to break
ii to St Joseph's church The Sacris
tan, armed with a gun, appeared in
the doorway of the church aud threat
ened to blow out the brains of the iirst
man who entered, The crowd then
retired. Shortly afterwards, a force of
police appeared aud clear id the streets.
During the struggle a revolver was
fired at the officer in command but no
one was injured. Except for the foregoing disturbances, Paris has remain
nnexneotedly quiet, but this condition
of things is not likely to continne
Tbe long heavy rain yesterday combined with the act that the leadtirs of
the opposing parties were all at Hen-
nes, prevented any organized demonstration. Then, too, the general publio wore delighted with the verdiot as
confirming the Ohosee .Tugee. Now,
however, they aro beginning to see the
want of logic in con.eding "extenuating circumstances" tu a convicted trai
tor of concession which' exists doubles
the strength of_the case against Dreyfus. Moreover,'pnblio opinion is being
sobered by reading the comments of
the world at largo, and by the prospect, however remote, that the exposition will be boycotted which would
moan a loss of millions to the country.
There is little doubt that the trial of
the Deroulediats next Monday, nt
which it is asserted sensational evidence will he developed, and the reopening of tho chamber of deputies
will be signal for_ fresh troubles. At
present both parties are taking breath,
but the latest animosities areuudimin
ished. It is estimated tbat the last
year's proceedings have cost the Dreyfus party at least 100,0(10 franees.
They don't intend to let matters rest
and rumors are revived of the impending arrest of General Mercier, he do
clares that he does not care what happens, being quite stisfied that he has
done his duty.
Tboro were over eleven hundred people in the Kink on Saturday evoning

Godfrey cleared $1.200 and as Mr.

asked $1,000 for a guarantee Lieutenant Dan should be well satisfied with
