Nelson,  British Columbia. Wednesday, June 7,   1899.
Tenth Year
OF THE COURT
Brewster Found Guilty
the Charge.
of
SENTENCE    POSTPONED
Jury  Was  Out About an Hour���Other
OnseB That Were Dealt With
Yesterday.
The fiist case on the list for yesterday wns thnt of Regina vs. Sinclair.
Tim prisoner was defended by Mr.
Macdouuld, of B'jsslond, who at the
outset demurred to the indictment ou
the ground that the charge therein
differed from tho charge ou the war
rant. The judge held that the
charges, though different in form
were identical in principle, and
came under the same acts. He, however, reserved a case for the decision
of the full court.
Tho trial thou preceded. The Deputy Attorney-General in opening the
case stated that the prisonser, James
II. Siuolnil', was charged with stoal-
ing from his employers, the Dominion
Bxrpess Company, at Trail, B. 0.
various sums amounting in all to $.r)0().
Ho outlined the evidence he proposed
to call and referred to the fact that
tho principal witness would he tirew-
stur, the man who had been convicted
list week. Twelve witnesses wer
called by Iho Crown to prove the payment of spceilied sums to tho
Prisoner. Brewster was then called
and upon his evidence the case for tho
Crown hinged.
Constable Devitt proved the arrest
r.f prisoner at Spokane (hy extradition).
The case for tho Crown being closed
the defence railed Messrs. Fred Irving,
Thaokabury, Fisher nud Gilker, to
testify to the prisoner's reputation for
honesty and integrity.
Mr. Maodonald then addressed the
jury for the defence. He pointed out
the impropriety of connecting Ihe evidence given at Brewster's trial with
what they hud heard that day.
Brewster's evidence was that of an accomplice aud therefore should be given
no credence, moreover ho had strong
reasons for wishing to shift the responsibility for the crime ou another's
shoulders.
Brewster was the person responsible
for the money yet when he iirst discovered that there was a shortage he
did not keep a tight cheok on the prisoners dealings but allows the offence
to continue at intervals for another
year. In fact Brewster's conduct was
incomprehensible unless it was that of
an accomplice or tho actual culprit.
That being so Brewster's story in the
witness box was untrue and therefore
must not be believed. The Crown had
onlv proved a general shortage in prisoner's accounts. That was not sufflci->
ent; thoy must prove that particular
sums were actually taken by the prisoner and converted to his own use.
Tho entries made by prisoner in his
books go to prove his innoceuco for
lie would not have made them if guilty.
Prisoner was a married man with a
large familv <��nd deserved sympathy.
He had lived a steady life and nothing could be proved by the Crown as
to what had beconio of the meney,
assuming he had slolen it while Brew-
ster on the other hand had been living above his income. Finally the
case depended solely whether Brewster evidence was to he believed or not.
If not tho jury could not convict tbe
prisoner
The Deputy Attorney-General for
the Crown carefully went over the
points touched upon by the prisoners
council. He pointed out that the fact
that tbo Prisoners had beou proved
to have received certain sums of money
which he had not accounted for was
sufficient evidence for the jury to con
victhira. In the ordinary course nf
business these sums should have been
forwarded at once to the consignors of
the goods for which the sums had
been received. The oise for the Crown
did not rest on Bewster's evidence
alone. The prisoner had written to a
friend (letter produced in court) asking him to do his work for him as he
desired to go to Rossland and raise
some money in order to get, "straight
ened up" with his employers; another
important point was that when the
auditor is expected the prisoner departs
to the United States and reiuses to re
turn and meet tho charge against him
until he is extradited.
The judge then summed up. He
reviewed the evideuce which counsel
had dwelt on. He pointed out to the
���jury that although Brewster might not
be blameless yet if his evidence was
corroborated it should bo considered.
The fact that Brewster was mixed up
in tt>9 affair was no argument that
the prisoner was not guilty. The jury
should consider carefully the prisoner s
letter and the fact that he loft the
country and refused to return. Was
that the conduct of an innocent man?
Tbe plea for sympathy was not for
the Jury to comider.   Family ties and
reputation aro no excuse for a crime,
hut ouly to be considered hy a judge
when passing senteuce.
Tho jury retired and returned in
about an hour with a verdict of guilty.
Sentence was postponed.
Frankio Smyth, a colored lady, was
charged with unlawfully wounding
another woman named Holmes at Fer-
uio. The prisoner pleaded guilty to a
common assault which plea the Crown
accepted and the judge sentenced hor
to two months Imprisonment with
such hard labor   as she could porform.
Tho case of Regina vs. Banuott, Mr.
Macdonald, on behalf of the prisoner,
made an ineffectual effort to quash tho
indictmont on the ground that the
same did not con,,: within the criminal
code. The cuso will be triod this
morning.    Tho  court then adjourned.
THEY SALUTED ADMIRAL DEWEY
The Return of the Famous American
Admiral.
Hong Kong, June ti.���The United
Statos cruiser Olympia, with Admiral
Dewey on board, left hero at 4 o'clock
this afternoon. The weathor was
wretched. It was blowing and raining hard at tho time of the warship's
departure.
Hong Kong, June 0.���While passing
the British crnisor Powerful, the band
of the Olympia played the British
National Anthem and gave a bugle
salute. There was no firing. The
Powerful replied with a similar salute and her band played "Hail Columbia". As tho Olympia passed tho
Italian admiral's ship the Olympiu's
hand played tho Italian Anthem and
gave an admiral's salute which compliments were returned. Then the
Olympia's band played, "Auld Lang
Syne" and the band of the Powerful
played "Home Sweet Home." Admiral Dewey is apparently anxious
to avoid nil denioustrnitons.

mode a statement ou the subject of the
German Spanish treaty for the cession
of the Caroline, Ladroue and Pelew is-
lanps. He said that in order to round
off the Gorman possessions in the Pacific and iu view of German commercial intorests which had long existed

group so that in the event of a ohange
in ownersihp it should not be lost to
Germany." The minister then read
tho text of tho agreement which was
concluded February 12, 1809.
"First���Spain codes to Germany the
Caroline, Peluws and Ladroue Islands,
except the Island of Quara in consideration of a compensation of 25 million
pesetas
"Second-Germany concedes to the
Spanish trade and agricultural enterprises in these islands the same treatment and facilities as to German trado

"An understanding has also been arrived at with Spain regarding the mn-
tual granting of conventional tariffs

the matter. Until then we hope the
Reichstag will defer its decision bnt of
international courtesy."    (Cheers.)
A   NEW    LINE   OF     STEAMERS.
Will Operate Between Montreal and
Bordeau, France.
Montreal, Jnne 6.���A new company,
known ns the Societe de Navigation
Franco-Oauadienne will early in July
operate a new line of steamers between
Montreal and Bordeaux, France. The
Hon. Mr. Desjardins is adminstrator
for Canada, and Mr. M. Poindron is

inception. It promises to transport
freight to France without charging the
specifio tax of 72 cents per 220 pounds,
now levied on all products exported by
way of United States or Great Britain.

of both capitalists from France and
French Canadians resident in Montreal, The Societe do Navigation

According to the Skagway Alaskan
of May 81, the water iu Lako Bennett

expected to be Juno 10 before navigation will open.
The Alaskan said : "According to information received by wire from Bennett yeBterday, there is no necessity
for any one hurrying ovor to Bennett
in the hopes of catching the first
steamer down th3 lake, for the reason
tbat the water in the lake, is so low
that the steamers, which are all out of

therefore, for people having to go to
Dawson City to remain comfortably in

LARGE    STEAMERS    BUILDING.
If not   already   embarked,   Dreyfus
will   in   a  few hours be on board  a
French   oruiser,   on   his way  back to
France.    It   was   in December,   1894,
he was  pronounced by   court   martial
guilty of selling military secrets to a
foreign   Power,   and  having been degraded in tbe usual way  was  sent  a
prisoner to tbe Isle of Devils, off the
Ooast of French Gniana.   It is known
now; it has been  known  for at least
two years, that the evidonce on whioh
he was convioted was forged  and that
those   who   gave   it   were  perjured.
Those who prosecuted  him knew from
tbe beginning tbat  he was  innooent
of the   crime   oharged   against   him.
Those who  tried him knew   tbat  his
conviction was being supported by forgery and  perjury.   And  members  of
tbe Government and high army officers
who for two years have been resisting
with all their might the effort to  obtain a revision of his oase have known
tbat he was the victim of a   conspiracy.   One officer implicated in it committed suicide; another is a fugitive;
a third is in prison.    A noted  anthor,
for championing his cause, is in exile.
Families   have been rent by it;  parties divided and estranged. For months ,
Paris stood on the brink of revolution
beoause of it    Rioting has   been   frequent.   Nothing    has   transpired   in
France for many  years that has created so much violent  commotion.    And
through it all men in the highest   positions labored   day and night to prevent tbe truth from  being discovered.
They have been more active and earnest in endeavoring to  leave the stain
of guilt on an innnocent man than they
could ever be provuilad upon to display
in having justice  measured out to a
guilty one.
It is in all respects tbe most extraordinary oase of the century. Entire
Cabinets have thought it their dnty to
France to leave this innooent man to
his disgrace and punishment; they
were willing tbat he shonld die in bis
prisou rather than have tbe truth exposed. There have been many conjectures as to the real facts at the bottom of it all, but the secret has been
so well kept tbat even yet the publio
are not in possession of them. But
these are of little interest in comparison with the remarkable energy of
those in authority to prevent a revision
and to deny justioe to an innocent man.
One is simply amazed at it. But'in
spite of all opposition the trnth at last
has prevailed. A revising court, after months of siftiing and inquiring,
has come to the conclusion that Dreyfus was unjustly oonvioted. It cannot
annul the sentence, but it has done the
next best thing in ordering a new
trial. Truth never before had such a
struggle to reach the light. It was predicted some time ago tbat the Dreyfns
caso wonld destroy the Republic If
this is a fruit of tbat form of Government in France, tbe civilised world
will hope that it may be destroyed.
Tbat the innocence of this victim of
as foul a conspiracy as was ever hatched will now be established there is,
happily, no longer any doubt, Proofs
of forgery have been discovered, and if
this were not enough the principal
tool of the conspirators has confessed
to the authorship of the document on
which the guilt of Dreyfus was mainly
based. Dreyfus is not only going
baok to France, bnt to liberty and
honor. Never man went on more joyful voyage.

There has been little heard of tbe
Winnipeg by-election recently, but it
is supposed to be still in conompln-
tion. As the voters' list was more than
a year old a new one was declared
to be necessary, and stops were taken
to prepare it. But tbe work has progressed with a leisure that must be
full of delightful suggestions of n picnic to those engaged in its preparation.
It is evident the Government are in
no hurry. They have an admirable
candidate, tbe best the party in
Winnipeg can afford, but they are in
no haste to ohallenge a contest. There
is a fly in the ointment, Mr. E. D.
Martin, a brother of the only Joseph,
whom British Columbia is so fortunate as to possess as Attorney-General,
has announced his intention to become a candidate in behalf of tbat considerable portion of the party who are
disaffected, and the machine men are
in the agonies of consternation in
consequence.   This explains the delay.

NELSON'S BOATING
APPRECIATED   BY   RESIDENTS OF
OTHER CITIES.
A Rossland Man Grows Enthuslastio Over
Nolson'B   Advantages  aB   a
Summer Resort.
A Rossland man who had no-^or lio-
foro visited NbIhoii was in town for a
tow days this week. Wliilo hero n
friend invited him lo go for n sail on
tho lake. Thoy went flown to tho boat-
house, hired a oatboat and started.
There wns a stiff breeze blowing up the
lake ns thoy lofr tho wharf and the
Kosslandor who had never before boon
in a Railboat clntehod rather nervously as tho first y>uff of wind takiiiR
tho sail laid tho boat over till the
Ktinwhnle was under water, Ho soon
got aooustomsd to tho motion however
and as tho boat out through   the erisp-
iiiK waves sending glittering showers
of spray over tho bow ho could hardly
contain his enthusiasm.
"I don't wonder now that von Nelson peoplo nro in such a hurry to net
baok to yoni town when away, "he
said. "A trip liko this I boliovo would
do a man more Rood than a month at
a sanitarium. I never imagined that
Nelson had suoh splendid facilities
for boating. Why.il' wo had this water
at Rossland we would have half a
dozen yacht elubs."
Tho boat was bronbt about and ran
down past Squire's ranch to near tl e
mouth of Grohmnn Creek, where they
landed and a visit was made to Iho
falls, which if placed in a country
less richly blessed by nature with
scenery would be a regular pilgrimage
point. Again the "cat" was header)
eastward and running free (]uioldv
made on to Fivo Mile Point, passing
on the way tho beautiful panoramic
view of Nelson, backed by the eneir-
olinR mountains, which familiarity
has mado almost unnoticed hy many
residents of tho City.
The many natural ideal camping
places along the beaches between the
City and point were noted, and by tho
time the return trip was ended tho
Kosslandor was so deeply impressed
that he had made up his miud to bring
his family from Rossland to Nelson
for the summer.    As bo remarked :
"In Nelson one oan have all Ihe advantages of tho best snmmer resorts,
and I can run down mjself occasionally, und it will be a great dei.l bettor
than sending thoiu away to somo resort where oue hns to go beyond civilization In order to bo supposed to enjoy tho summer."
not nn expert canoeist and it was feared
that somo mishap bad befallen him.
On Monday Oapt. Troup organized a
search party and sent them oat to
scour the lake in the hope of Hulling
tho missiug man.
Yesterday the search party reported
that Mr. Fletcher s canoe with his
namo on it had been found floating
bottom upwards on tho lake, about six
miles from Kootenay Landing. Orders have been sent to the search party
to endeavor to find the body.
The authorities have very little
doubt but that the unfortunate man has
been added to tho already numerous
victims of Kootenay Lako.

CATASTROPHE   ON   THE   LAKE.
About a wonk ago Mr. Fletcher, tho

but did not return.    Mr.   Fletcher was
LOCAL AND PERSONAL
The regular weekly prayer meeting
of the Presbyterian church was held
last evening.
Mr. W. A. Jowett left town yesterday on a visit to Knslo and the sur-
rouudiug district.    .
Tho wet disagreeable weather of the
past few weeks has been general
throughout Canada.
Mr. W. F. Armstrong, Gold Com-
missiouer, from Fort Steele arrived in
Nelson yesterday afternoon.
The excavating for the Hudson's Bay
Company's new building has now been
completed, and work on the foundation started.
Mr. R. Marpole, general superintendent of theO. P. R., Western Division has been staying at the Phair hotel
for the past two days.
High water is creating quite a cur-
reut iu the lake opposite Nelson. At
ihe C. P. R. wharf it is runniug
nearly three miles an hour.
Mr. Geo. E. Nunn is to bo congratulated on the arrival of an infant
daughter on Sunday last. Both moth-
3r and baby are doing well.
At a meeting of the committee
which had in charge the Library Rail
it wns found that $160 had been cleai-
ed.   This is a very encouraging report.
The parlor social at the Methodist
parsonage today will be from 6 to 9
o'clock. A nominal chaige of ton
ceuts will bo made. Ice cream nnd
light refreshments will be served.
The boom iu renl estate has subsided
temporarily we hope. This is no doubt
owing to the tact that nearly all the
real estate brokers have been engaged
in juries during the last few days.
The rowing committoe for tho Dominion Day sports will meet the coin-
mitteo of the Nelson Boating Club to
arrango tho events of the celebration
at Mr. Haines' rooms at 8 o'olook this

E. Stucky, of Pincher Creek, was
nnited to Miss Marv McEaohern of
Nelson, also O. W. Dodd and L. N.
White, both of Kaslo.
Dr. LaBau mforms ns that the gen-
tloraan, apparently his brother who
has accompanied him lately to his
daily drive, is only a brother medico,
namely, Dr. Macdonnld, of Brandon,
a brother in blood of Mr. W. A. Mao-
(lonald, Q. O.
Tho severe weather of the paBt
wintor is responsible for many rough
places iu the Citv streets. Drains
wore dug to get at frozon water pipes,
nud afterwards fillod in with frozen
earth, which after the frost went hns
subsided into ditches, making many

Windermere, June 1.���James Farrol,
mining engineer from San Francisco,
airived on the 29th instant.
S. S. Duchess made bar initial trip
arriving at Windermere on the 31st
instant from Golden B. O.
It is understood tbat the owners of
the Union Group have accepted an
offer of |50,000, ten per cent down.
The Union is a copper proposition assaying on an average $154 tu the ton,
has two well defined leads four and 13
feet respectively. It is one of tbe most
promising propositions of  the district.
Delphine mine on Toby Creek is
looking better tban ever, having uncovered another large body of high
grade ore, regular shipments will be
made commencing in   the near futnre.
The following propositions have been
bonded during the past  six   months.''
Red Line group, $50,000: Dividend
group, $100,000 ;White Elephant group,
$500,000; Sitting Bull group, $85,
000; Union group, deal pending, $50,
000; Swansea mine, floated with a
capital of $80,000.
During the coming season the following propositions will be developed on
a large scale: Delphine mine on Toby
creek; MoLeod group on Hismarck;
Sitting Bull; Dividend, White Elephant ; Red Line; Hot Punch ; Morning Glory; Swansea; Jap grouu;
Pretty Girl; Vulcan ; Delos; Union ;
Silver Hill; Mary G ; Caretaker; Craig
group; Thomas Cat; Arvide; Chris
tina; Nigar; Breadwinner; Three of
a Kind; Equitable; Brown group;
Sinolair; Pet; B. O. and Chilberry;
Burton group.
Athalmere saw mill is now running
full blast and will endeavor to catcb
up with the present demand for lumber.
It is understood that 1,000 prospectors
are camped between Elko and the
Boundary line on their way to the
Winermere district.
Construction work will undoubtedly
be started on a railroad either from
tbe Crows Nest or American boundary
line within three months, Windermere
being the objective point, tbenoe via
Toby Creek valley to oonneot with the
Arrowhead branch in the Duncan
country. The route via Toby oreek and
thence down Hail creek is considered
in every way feasible one, and won 14
open the greatest mineral bearing country in existence.
From present indications there  will
be an unusual   large influx of prospec
tors and capitalists into   the   Winder
mere district during the  coming sea
son.
The prinoipal mineral bearing
creeks of tbe district are Toby, Horse
Thief, Number Two, Boulder, Law,
Dutch. Besides the Rocky Mountains
in the immediate vicinity of Windermere, tbis district offers more inducements to tbe prospector and capitalists
tban any other in British Columbia,
having tbe greatest surface showings
in existence and from work already
done has shown the country improves
with depth.
The Trail through Toby Oreek and
down Hammil oreek to Argenta on
Kootenay lake known as Well's Pass
will soon be open and large crowds
of prospectors from West Kootenay
will come in over the trail instead of
via Fort Steele B. O.
���  ���   ��
Mr. Charles Dundee has just returned to town from Ymir. Owing to the
recent fire no work has yet been com-
meneced at tbe Dundee mine. The
property is looking better tban ever
and is being well oared for by the
foreman, Mr. Finlay.

ese from $50 to $500. He made a long
and effective speech. J. V. Ellis of St.
John, raised the point of order that
as the bill proposed an expenditure of
money, a private member couid not
move it. Sir Wilfrid Laurier said he
point was not well taken, and at nny
rate he would ask the Spenker not to
give his ruling until others had an opportunity to speak on the subject. Tho
debate was adjourned.
