POPE  TAKES  A  HAND
His Holiness Announces HiB Intention to
to Address a Letter to the
French Nation-
London, Sopt. 16 ��� M. Do Blowitz,
the Paris correspondent of The Times
says: "I learn that Capt. Dreyfus
will shortly withdraw his appeal for
a revision of the Rennes trial which
will leave the ground clear for the
Government to take immediate steps
to pardon bim, This pardon will not
iiiiinil the civil and military oonse-
quennes of tho verdict, and he will,
therefore, no longer belong to the army.
There is nothing, however, to prevent
liim from applying to the Court of Cassation to qush the Rennes trial, whenever the new fact required hy law is
produced. When liberated he will
settlo in the south of France, as tlie
members of bis family do not wish to
expose him to such demonstrations of
sympathy abroad as mi.ht. he used
against him by his adversaries at
home "
The Paris correspondent of The Daily
News says: "The Promier M. Wal-
derk Rousseau has promised definitely
to propose a pardon for Dreyfns at nest
Tuesday's council.

Melbourne. Vil torin, r' nt 15.���A
large publio meeting was' held here

New York, Sept. 15.���News of the
progress of (he Venezuelan revolution
lias been received hy a prominent
South Amerioan by mail in this city
from the military committee in charge
of the affairs of th) rebels. This committee is located now on one of the
West Indian islands an_ consists of

tiou is progressing ranidly and has

TO TRY CRAWFORD.
Ho Assisted Eight Prisoners to Esoapo
at   Wardner.
Wardner, Idaho, Sept. 15. ���Oiders
for convening of the court-martial to
Ivy Sergeant Crawford are daily expected by the military authorities at
the bullpen. Crawford is the sergeant of the guard who assisted tho
eight piisoners to escape from the pris-
"ii about three weeks ago, and was later naught at Missoula. Seven of Ibe
prisoners were under indictment for
the murder of James Oheyne on
April 21). The othor prisoner was
charged with conspiracy in the riots of
the same date.
Ii waB at first intended to tako the
sergeant to Fort Robinson for trial,
hut upon roconmiondation of Majoi
Smith the court-martial will ho held
at Wardner. Owing to tho number of
charges against the prisoner, he will,
il coavioted, receive sentences which
will amount to imprisonment for many
years,probably for life. In uddition to
this, he will be dishonorably discharged from tfie army, a disgrace whioh
every soldier dreads more than Imprisonment or lines. Among tho charges
"gainst Crawford Bre quitting the
guard without leave, accepting luihes,
wilfully; aiding and assisting in the
esoapeof prisoners oharged with crime,
conduct  unbecoming    u   soldier   and

non-commissioned   officer.    There    is
also another  oharge  against  the prisoner which is not specifically  defiued,
hut is of equal gravity with the rest.
The court-martial may consist of
from live to 18 commissioned officers,
nnd its findings and sentence are final.
Unlike courts of justice, there is no
appeal from the -judgment of a court
martial after its work has been reviewed by the officer in command of
the department. In case of error
found by the reviewing officer the case
goes back to the same court again for
trial The President is the only authority who can grant a pardon or reduce
the sentence.
SILENCED THE NATIVES.
Washington, Sept. 15.���The .Wowing dispatch has been received at the
navy department:
-"Manila, Sept. 15.���Secretary of
the Navy, Washington: Davidson,
commanding tho Paragua, reports a
sharp engagement at Malemao The
vessel was stnrck many times by rifle
shots. No causualties. The Paragua
silenced the insurgent's fire in 20 minuets at a range of 400 to 900 yards.
The occasion was the capture of a Filipino schooner, which Daivdson de-
sroyed. WATSON."
Mulameo is in the Province of Mas-
bate, south of Luzon and north of Vis-
ay as.
Manila, Sept. 12,via Hong Kong,
Sopt. 15.���Tho local papers assert that
Corporal Damhoffer and Private Conine, Company B, Sixteenth infantry,
huve beeu sentenced to death by court-
martial and that Private McBeunett
has been condemned to 20 years imprisonment fur having criminally assaulted native women in Manila a month
ago. The crimes, it is said, greatly
aroused lhe natives. The papers assort
also that General Otis nas recommended tbat President MoKiuley approved
the sentence and that ho desires a public execution of the men sentenced to
denth as a warning against a repetition of the crime.
COMMISSIONERS   RECALLED.
Manila, Sept. 16.-11:50 a. m.��� Col
onol Charles Denby and Prof. Dean
Worcester, members of tho Philippine
commission, have received instructions
from President McKinley asking them
to return as soon as possible. Thoy
will embark on tha steamer Empress
of India, which sails from Hong Kong
September SB.
It is not known whether the clerical
force will remain or return with them.
The commissioners have just moved
into new offices and expected to spend
somo months working on the establishment of  municipal government
The Nevada oava'ry was unable to
sail on the Newport. They will tnke
the next available transport.
THE REASON WHY.
Washington, Sept. 15.���It is said at
the War Department that the return of
tho two members of the Philippine
Commission remaining in Mnnila
Messrs. Denby and Worcester, is in order to ad\*_e the President respecting
the very latest aspect of affairs so that
ho may use the information in his
message to Congress. There is an intimation conveyed that the advices
brought by President Schruman and
Senator Beveridge and other persons
recently returned from Manila aro not
in all points in strict accord though the
items of divergence aro not known beyond tho While House. It is said that
as Admiral Dewey is Hearing the
United stales the opportunity to have
a meeting of the full commission, of
which he is a member, is one that
should not bn lost and the report that
may be expected to sum [np their work
will be indispensable to Congress in
its efforts at. legislation for tho islands. No statements can be had officially as to tho future of the commission, but it is not regarded as probable
that it will return to the Islands, at
least not without a considerable change
in personel. The recall of Messrs.
Denby and Worcester will leave Goneral Otis the sole representative of tho
United States in the Philippines.
DISMISSED WITH COSTS.
Berlin, Sept. 15.���The District Judicial Council has dismissed with costs
the action brought hy tho Berlin municipality against tbe chief of polioe
who was charged with having prevented the erecting of an arch in the

Within a Measurable Distance of War.
THINKS SHE IS TRICKED
rl he Transvaal Adheres to the Seven Years
Franchise���Willing  to  Consider Suggestions,
London, Sept. 15.���8:20 p. m.���At
this hour South African advices continue most conflicting regarding lhe
lenor of Krugers answer to Chamberlain. The Morning Post, in a sec-
oud edition, prints a special dispatch
from Pieterinaritzburg, capital nf Na
tal, saying the reply is "truculent
loquacious aud blashpomons,"
The Manchester Guardian's correspondent at Capetown, telegraphs, say
ing the outlook is of the gloomiest
character. Capetown papers themselves take a more hopeful view of the
situation, basing their belief on the
probable acceptance by Kruger of the
franchise measures suggested in Chamberlain's latest dispatch. But even
they admit it is impossible to learn or
foreshadow Kruger's attitude toward
suzerainty of Great Britain, which, after all, is still the main issue.
Pretoria, Sept. lo.���At the close of
the days session both Raads met in secret session to riisouss the final draft of
the Traii3vual reply, which will be
handed to Mr. Coiiyngham Greene the
British Ageut Here, in the morning.
It is understood the reply is courteous,
urges tho acoeptanceo of a joint conference and maintain! tho convention of
1884.
London, Sept. 16.���The Times says:
"We cannot believe that President
Kruger will reject the latest proposals
of the Government aud we would
rerilind him that even Mr. Morlev
has endorsed the five year franchise
and urged him to accept the Capetown
conference.''
It is understood that the Cabinet
Council will be gammoned as soon as
tho Transvaal's reply is received.
The Pretoria correspondent of the Manchester Guardian telegraphing Friday-
says: "Tho situation has become
extremely grave. The material chau-
ges in the draft of the reply delivered
to Mr. Greene today aro due to the
representations from Bloemfoutein and
the disposition af the Volksraad."
The dispatch then gives what purports to he a summary of the reply
whioh is similar to the other forecasts
concluding as follows: "Tho Transvaal feels at liberty to depart from the
joint inquiry, which she accepted|in
the bonn fide belief that it -would lead
to final settlement." The correspondent adds: "Both the President and
the executive council are firmly convinced that no finality is intended and
that further concessions would only
postpone the struggle. The Trausvaa]
regards herself as trioked into a proposal by Mr. Chamberlain. The Orange
Free State will certainly stand by the
Transvaal''
.Manchester, Sept 15.���The Right
Hon. John Morloy, Liberal, Member of
Parliameut for Montrose liorough while
addressing n peace meeting in this city
this evening, at which a sou of the
late John Bright, the distinguished
British statesman and a friend of peace
presided, was frequently interrupted
by crios of "Mimlui hill" and othei
auti-Boer demonstrations. In retorting
to the Interruptions Mr. Morley suid.
" A year or two ago the United States
saw only one aspect of war and what
are they doing today? They aro repenting. They havo their yellow pross
and we have our yellow press. If I am
asked to speak iu his hall ajy.aror two
later, I shall find thosa who now oppose
me, repenting also."
The proceedings finally became so
noisy that Mr. Morley had great difficulty in obtaining a hearing. Ho urged
an adherence to the five years franchise proposal, and advised President
Kruger lo accede to Groat Britain's
suggestion regarding tho conference.
Mr. Leonard Courtney, Unionist,
Member of Parliament for the Bodmin
division of Cornwall in seconding Mr
Morley's resolution in favor of securing reforms by pacific moans advocating the remitting of the question of
superiority to the Privy Counoil. Mr.
Morley's resolution was carried by a
largo majority, the noisy minority
ex-pressing its dissent by hoisting the
Union Jack.
London Sept. 15���A special dispatch from Pretoria says: "TheTransvaal reply will be an the following
lilies���The Transvaal adhors to Ihe
seven years franchise law but U willing lo consider, and, if necessary to
adopt auy suggestions Great Biitaiu
may make with regard to the working of Ihe law. In rogard to the other
points of Mr. Chamberlain's dispatch
the   Transvaal  boldly  stands by   the
London  convention.     It   is   said   the
reply jh couched iu polite terms.''
State Secretary Reitz in the course
of an iuterviw today, expressed some
doubt as to whether any alteiation
would be made in the existing franchise law, but said ho believed a way
si,o j Id and could bo found to establish
an arbitration court. As tn suzerainty
the least said, the soonest mended, remarked the State Secretary. In the
forecasts of President Kruger's reply
then.' is undoubtedly a large basis of
truth which seeins to be the dispute
within a measurable distance of war.
Last evening tho Press Association
isSued a curious statement to the effect
that as soon as the garrison at Natal
had heen sufficiently strengthened the
Transvaal Government would be called on to accept a new convention already drafted, whioh, while guaranteeing the intergity of the Transvaal
State provides for the demolition of
the forts, und limits the armed foe of
the Transvaal to a number deemed
sufficient to maintain   internal   order.
According to the Press Association
the convention will demand the diplomatic agenoies be suppresed and the
judicary be nude independent of the
executive. This statement, which
realizes the extreme demand of tbe
Uitlanders must be accepted under
reserves. At the prosent, but it is not
unlikely to be a semi-official hint as
to the next move of the Government,
should President Kruger prove obdurate. The morning papers' editorials
regard the crisis as having reached its
most acute phase. The Daily News
says: "We refuse to believe that Pros
ident Kruger is so foolish as to reject
Mr. Chamberlain's moderate demands.'' The Daily Chronicle which
appeals again to Mr. Kruger "to accept
while it is time and before England's
terms become harder" says: "A refusal of the present terms will involve
the ruin of the Stale over which Presi ���
dent Kruger presides. The British
Government have played their first.
aud second moves in the game aud
must perforce nlay the third, and then
the fourth. If Mr. Kruger haggles,
tho sinister conditions in|Sonth Afrioa
will grow worse, until a catastrophe is
reached.''
Other papers talk of the imminence
of war and all the dispatches from
Sonth Africa continue to desoribo the
military preparations on both sides.
The Pretoria correspondent of tho Daily
Chronicle says: "The Boers assert
that Mr. Onnynghnm Greene (British
Diplomatic agent at Pretoria) knew
it was their intention to adopt tbe attitude they have been regarding suzerainty and that he tacitly encouraged
them for this as documents show.
His 48 hour demand and the string of
blue book innuendoes, for which he
and Sir Alfred Milner are responsible,
havo produced an official atmosphere
in which anything is possible, at the
s3mo time Mr. Hoffmeyer, and practically every member of the Cape Afrikander citv have wired urging acceptance of the British domains."
Tho Pretoria correspondent of Tho
Times in his forecast of the Transvaal
reply declares that tho Boers will lay
stress upon the seven year franchise
law though offering to considor the
British suggestions as to workings
'tint for tho rest, take their stand on
the London Convention.
Capetown, Sept. 15.���The British
lligh Commissioner Sir Alfred Milner,
has issued a proclamation prescribing
severe penalties for inciting the natives of Basutoland aud othor districts
to rebellion.
Johaunesburrg, Sept. 15.���The Eastern Star of Johannesburg asserts that
a martial proclamation is being printed, It is reported here that the reply
of Transvaal Government to British
note will suggest a seven years franchise.
IN THE THICK OF IT.
London, Bept, 15,���Mr. Joseph Have-
lock Wilson, Radical Member of Parliament, for Middleborougli. said today :
"We have now got into the thick of
tin" light, but tho agitation must be
carried mi for three months in order to
obtain success.''
TIED UP HY THE STRIKE.
London, Sept. 15.���Seventeen steamers were unable to leave the Tyne today owing to the shipping strike. The
Montreal liner Oervon ami the steamer
Silverilale   have conceded the strikers'
demands,    The  seamen   aro   jubilant.
FROST DKSTKOYS  CROPS.
New York, Sept. 15.���The unlocked
for cold snap and tbej frost of the last
two nights has destroyed the fruit and
grain crops e.f the interior ]>ointH of
Long Island and the farmers will lose
heavily -in consequence. The fruit
left on the trees for full pioking ia reported to be a total loss.
ROUGH  WEATHER.
St. John. Nfld., Sent. 15.���A violent
hur.icano swept this seotion of Newfoundland last night. The Allan liner,
Corean, from Philadelphia, had a
frightful passage and the steamer
Silvia from New York was delayed 24
hours. Four fishing boats were driveu
oil' the St. Johns Coast and three men
and a woman drowned. Widespread
destruction of fishing premises and
gear is report**" and it is feared that
there has been much damage and probable loss of life at more distant points.
IAS
SECOND TRIAL
The Broken Gaff Has Been
ThoroughlySRepaired.
SIR THOMAS ON BOARD
Under Her New Sails Is Qoite a Different
Yacht���An lObjeot of Admiration to Everyone-
New York, Sept. 15.���The Shamrock
had another trial roday. The Irish
racer was taken in tow by the tug
James A. Lawrence at half past ten
o'clock aud a few minutes later she
had turued the point of Sandy Hook
and was proceeding out through the
main channel. She had her jib and
stay sail in steps and tbo mainsail was
ready to Vie hoisted. The broken gaff
bad beeu repaired. A new plate had
been put in and the jaws made stronger than ever, so that another accident
suoh as that nf Thursday,is believed to
be impossible. A thorough examination was made of the spar at the same
time and no other flaws were discovered. Sir Thomas Lipton came down
to Sandy Hook Bay, and went on
board the Shamrock before she left her
moorings. Mr. Fife, the designer of
the green craft, and Mr. Ratse, the
maker of the sails, were also on board.
While the Shamrock was still in tho
bay channel her crew was ranged along
aft with peak and throat haliards in
hand, tho work of hoisting tho big
mainsail was begun. Tbere was apparently more effort necssary than
ever before and it took a great deal
longer to get the jaws of tho gaff up
even to the regions of baby-spread
point. The Shamrock crossed the bar
with mainsail beiug slowly drawn
out of a goose wing condition and
headei for tbe Sandy Hook Lightship.
Under main sail, staysail, jib, jib
topsail, club topsail and spinnaker the
Shamrock crossed the starting line of
the 'cotland Lightship at 10 :45 to sail
over a measured conrse. Tho wind from
the west was blowing a gentle breeze,
weather clear and a light sea. She
headed about east, her sails full, making the tug boats crowd on steam to
keep up. Tbo Shamrock went east south
east before a. wind that increased to
15 miles, her great spinnaker bellying
out as sho Mtarted with her taffrnil log
trailing behind her. Tho intention
was to go over the regular conrse,
then run to leeward and beat back.
No one could help ulmiriug the Irish
boat as she flew along under her tre-
menduoiiB spread of canvas. Her men
kept well aft and she slipped along
gracefully, not once dipping her noee
into the sea, as she did on other occa-
fions. Tho Shamrock under her new
sails waa quite a different yact.
DRUGGED AND ROBBED.
Waverly, Wash., Sept. 14. -JaB. Sut-
ton of Chowelah, died in great agony
hero this afternoon from the effects of
drugged liquors, believed to ha"e heen

hours afterwards when Sutton's condition was discovered. Prompt und
energetic efforts were made by physicians to save hia life, hut in vain. He
died ut 4180 p. m., without having regained sufficient cons3iousnuss to give
lhe slightest clue to those tcapoiisibl.

Columbia which could possibly be improved by the construction of the railway. He found that iu 1897 these
ports yielded 1880,378, and In 1898,
1382,900, or a decrease of $48,000, instead of an increase of $(100,000. He
challenged anybody to dispute these
figures. Foi the year ending July 1st,
1899, the receipts from those ports
were 1877,909,ox 18,000 less than before
the Crow's Nest Railway was built.
Those who hesitate between the two
must take the Blue Books for it, and
ascertain for themselves. It is only
fair to remember, however, that Sir
Richard contented himself with an es

only by the powers of imagination or
the political exigency it is designed to
serve.

there can be no doubt; while the meddling rjf the Government aud Legislature in affairs that had been progressing harmoniously and satisfactorily is
an example he would not recommend
for general adoption. We have pleasure in quoting the letter in full:
"As the columns  of your   paper are
always tpen to tho  discussion   of  any
subject of vital importance, I take the
liberty to say a  few   words upon   the
Eight-Hour law.    Three months  have
passed since  this   law  became   operative, and there is no growing  time  in
the Slooan. Eight years ago last Saturday the fiuding of   the   Payne gave to
(Jai.ada its great galena  camp.    Since
that time   the   Slocan   has had   many
trials.    It has suffered from the  crash
in silver, tho gold boom, the Klondike,
and a second panic   iu   the silver market   Through  all   this  trouble   wages
were iii.no for 10 hours  under ground,
while men and owners worked in harmony.    1'he   passing of a law making
it punishable by a tine to work   longer
than eight   hours underground has restricted   the  freedom of  the   subject,
temporarily  destroyed  the   prosperity
of the blocan, and   wrecked   the   harmony hitherto existing between   labor
and capital.    The largo mines are shut
down,    while   here   and   there   small
numbers of men are working tho regulation hours at the former wage.    The
managers or   bonders of   some properties deem it better to accept the situntion under protest rather than do nothing  and bo worried by  their   backers
or stockholders.    They are not satisfied
wilh the law, and some   of   them   do
not   want it at any  price.    They   also
state that men cannot do as much work
in eight hours as thoy cau in   ten, and
that the system   might   work in   some
camps, but not in   the tunnel camp of
the Slocan.    Capitalists also state that
the   Government   has   been   dishonest
with tbom, by increasing  the   cost of
mining after they had put their money
into tlie country.    Some think that the
Government should havo fixed the scale
of wages as well as   the hours of labor.
Iu the meantime  capital   stays  away,
as it does not want to settle down in a
district rendered almost   sileut by legislation;   prospects  are    decreased   in
value , and business  exists principally
in   memory,    The    mino owners  who
have money can wait.   The miner who
has nothing  ut   stake can work somewhere else, if ho bus strength.    Neither will suffer much.    The mine owner
with little   capital,    the  miner   with
olaims, and the   business men   are the
fellows who havo to tako  the financial
hell i.i this conflict.    They have   to bo
crucified ill order  that  an   experiment
may bo   tried.    If   tho Slocan   cannot
stand its medicine, it  cau  die.    If   it
cau stand it, labor will ho jubilant and
prosperity will again   mingle with ns.
until   some new   trouble   attacks   the
oiiinp   I believe that eight hours is long
enough to  work   undergtonnd     What
it is worth I do not know.    Tho  mino
owners r-ay   it is   worth |8, while   the
miners say it is  worth  IB.80,    A uiff-
erenoe of 60 cents cause* many of us to
mourn     If both patties could agree on
some   basis   long  enough   to give   the
law a fair trial, we   would have  more
knowledge of its practical  nature.    In
the meantime  the Lord  will   nave  to
look  after   tho   Slocan.    The   miners
and mine owners are too selfish to care
for  anybody's   interest   except    their
own."
Mr. Cotton says the Eight-Hour
lavv should be given a fail trial before
being condemned. Ihis is the reply
ho makes to the request that the law
be suspended uutil a commission, after
careful investigation, should n port on
its effect on the mining indnstry. By
a trial we understand him to mean
lhat mine managers should ascertain
by actual experience whether the men
could not do as much work in eight
hours as they formerly did in ten.
This is a sort of trial that has heen
made at various times ever since man
was created. It began with Adam,
who discovered that he could not walk
as far in eight hours as in ten, or do
as much delving in the garden. And
all down the generations since, it has
beeu ascertained that more can Le done
in the longer time. A man can lay
more bricks, or nail more boards, or
saw more wood, or set more type, or
shock more wheat, or pan more gold,
or drill more holes iu teu hours than
he can in cighr. The trial bas been
made, and it is quite needless to do it
over again. Ten hours are longer than
eight hours. Until this reckoning of
time is reversed by a law of nature
theie is uot the slightest necessity for
experiment. Mr. Cotton's suggestion
of a fair trial, therefore, is entirely su-
perfloas, although probably it was
thought to be cunning enough to deceive

THE CITY COUNCIL

Aid rman Loaves Th - Mornine for the
Coast Authorized to Settle the

Tl���.r,. was 11 Hpocinl nieetins of the

l'l,e'roHorl that City Clerk Strachan
l������l to offer, concerning the various
mutters of cosiness lhat the City hud
i,, settle with oompanies operating in
,,, ',,,ist cities. There were present
iho Mayor, Aid. MoKillop, Kirkpat-
,.i(1]C[ Boer, Fletcher, and Hillyer. Mr.
Strnchnu was first called upon anil
1,ml his roooi't us follows:
I have to report that in accordance
with the request of tlie Council that
during inv visit to Victoria I should

1 jovernraRnt on sevt nil matters affecting the Oity, -1 lnid interviews willi
1I1" linn. 0. A. Semlin, tho Hon. F,
(niter Cotton, the Hon. .1. Fred Hume
ami the Attorney-General, I, with
the Oily Solicitor, met the four named
Ministers together, and wo mentioned
verbatim the various matters we
j1;i-l io bring before them.
I, As regards the order in Couucil
whioh had been passed vesting the title
to the wharf at tbe foot ot Hall street
in the City, the Ministers considered
the request that not only the wharf but
the land forming tbe approaoh to it
nud appurtenant to it should also be
conveyed u reasonable one, and promised that a now order-in-Couneil would
be passed, und a proper deed issued
grunting what the City desired, aud
this I have since been informed by the
linn. F. Carter Cotton, the Chief Commissioner rf Lauds and Works, bun
been done
3, The Ministers also promised that
n bill would be introduced at the next
session i f the Legislature amending
the Water Clauses Consolidation Act
bu as to give to municipalities the same
rights as arc possessed by .Industrial
compuuies to secure water rights, so
that by the passing of snob bill tho
Oity would be enabled to secure the
water rights they desire on Kootenay
river, aud I vvdB requested to remind
tliciii of the mailer before the Legislature met, so that the proposed amending hill could be prepared and introduced,
3. With regard to the question of sr>-
r i nn., a gruiit of the ~3 lots fornilun
the [ri-.-r--i-.il recreation grounds, I with
Iho Hon. .1. 1'icd Hume, bad an interview with the Chief Commissioner of
bands and Works and Mr. W. S. Gore
ihe Deputy Commissioner. I also saw
thn H -ii t). li. Martin tbe late Chief
Commissioner and he very willingly
offered In do all in his power to nssisi
iii- Oily in tha ii,utter. In accordance
with the promise he mads me he culled mi Mr Hume mid informed bun of
��� ���it- understanding betwsou the late
' ivernment and the '. P. K. company
and also wrote to Mr. Robt, Marpole,
gr'ncral superintendent of ihe 0. P. K.
i upany on the subjeot reminding
Ilin of tlir' arrangement came to ss to
llio obooige of lands by the Government
ami thnt company,, i afterwards saw
Mr. Mnrpnle nt Vancouver, and although he admitted tnat an under-
'st.vuniug was come to betweeu the lale
Covernment and the company with re-
gnid to the exchange of lots the arrange
, bad not been curried out. He
informed me, that be had received a
letter from the Hon. G, II Martin on
the subject. Although he did not
hold out any hope of tlie grounds being
transferred lo the City, he stated that
Mr. I'hiinghnessy, the president of the
0. P. lt. and be would be in Nelson
shortly when the matter conld be again
discussed. Mr. Cotton has also promised me that bo will be in tho City
wilh Mr. Bhaugnessy and Mr.Marpole,
and lias expressed bis willingness tn
rlo all he could to further the City's in-
irivsls in tin' matter.
-I. 1 also drew the attention of the
Uoveruinent to the fact that n petition
ior school accommodation for the chil-
ilren living in the Eastern part of the
City and iu the Hume Addilion and
liogiiBtowu had been forwarded to
them supported by n resolution of
Council,bnt that up to that time nothing so fur as was known bud been
done. The Ministers oroinised to look
into the matter ut once, nud on my
subsequently calling at tbe Government buildings I was informed that
four lots in the Hume Addition bad
lii'iin secured and plans prepared for u
school bouse aud instnotlOUS given for
its immediate erection; a oopy of tlie
plan was given to me which I now
submit,
^ ���"'. Willi regard lo tbo streets the
Western end of the City closed by the
Hall Mines. Limited, I again saw the
Chief Commissioner of Lands and
Works and Mr.  \V. S. Core the Deputy
Commlsiloner,   The  latter explained
Ihttl a Crown grant which included tbe
pans of stroels closed wus issued to
the company hh a bonus for the erection of a uustoin smelter. The company were to receive the equivalent ol
���' iriwn lots, anil the arrangement
was brought tihout by an interview
with Sir Joseph Trutoh.in 1898. The
plan of Nelson is not a registered plan,
nnd there bad been no regular dedication lo the public of the streets cloned
and the grant was regular. Mr. (lore,
however, stated that the City has power to appropriate the Silica street purlieu for street pnrp rses, und cau by so
doing maintain the old highway to
I'oity-Nine creek.
'i- Before my interview with (he
members of the Government lhe City
Solicitor bad seen Mr. Sonilin and Mr.
Hume with regard tn Mrs. Gilbert's
acconiits for hospital cure aud board of
hiuu from the Orow's Nest   Puss Kail-
1 1 and the matter was again brought
"!' an 1 fully explained, and I have
' -iiry   reason tn believe   that the mat-
I r will be favorably enn-idored and
:' ill  .villi by the Uoveruinent.
'    I also saw Mr.    M.    B, Smith the
'jnditor-Uenerol who  kindly gave me
1 Information f  asked for regarding
II largo quantity of sewer pipe whiob
wns sent toNelBou shortly before its
'"corporation 'or drainage purposes,
ni'd whioh, loss a quantity which  baa
nam Hold hy Messrs. Tamer, lleelou &
"���. hus   beeu ever   since lviug in lhe
yard of the Nelson e. Fort Bbeppnid
Railway, inspected tlm voucher for
tne pipe and procured a copy of the
sumo which  1 herewith  submit.    Mr.
Smith is my presence stated to the
Chief Commissioner that it bad always
-sen considered that the pipe belonged to the City and remained subject io
the order of the City Council, I have
since with tho Mayor again seen Mr.
Cotton on the subject, aud bis Worship
can state to the Couucil the present position of the mutter.
8. I also drew attention to tbe delay
in completing the Board of Police Commissioners, and the matter wus at once
attended to and a third member appointed.
I).   With regard   tn the   claim of   the
Nelsou City Land and Improvement
Oompany I with the City Solicitor,
culled nu Messrs. Fell and Gregory
the Company's solicitors. Mr. Fell
who is also president of the company is
in England and his partner Mr. Gregory declined to discuss the matter. I
again saw Mr. Gregory and met Mr.
E. Chit Baker the secretary und one of
tho largest shareholders in the company. He readily consented to meet me
and go into the matter. We met and
we.t fuliy into the question of the
company's claim. Ho frankly admitted that the claim made was in his
opinion an unreasonable oue. He,
however, could not agree that thero
was no damage. Ho felt that the closing of two streets must of a necessity
depreciate the value of lots in the immediate neighborhood of the closed
streets near the reservoir. As the result of two long interviews. Mr. Baker, without landing his company,
expressed himself willing to come to
a settlement on the following basis:
The City to take up tbe present
flame and replace it by a pipe main on
the streets. The company to convey to
the City the following lots, viz. :
Lots, t), 10, 11 and 12 iu Block 23,
Lot I (150 foot frontage) in Block 38,
17.601 Lot, 2, (1,10 ft. front.) iu Block
33. $270; Lot 2, (150 ft. front.) in
Block, 34, $270. Total, 1,290, or say a
lump sum in payment for the land
and in full of ull claims of the company against the City of $1500.
Mr. Baker stated thut the company's
solicitors will leave a considerable
bill of costs against tbem iu the matter; that the irregular way in which
the land was taken possession of was
the fault of the City und not of his
company. He discussed the whole
matter with me in a spirit of fairness,
and with a desire so far as he was concerned to have the mutter amicably
settled nnd without lecourse to legal
proceedings. The question as to whether or not tho City has forfeited its
right to go into Arbitration in the
matter is one upon which the City Solicitor will advise you, and it is for
lhe Council to consider whether the
matter is now in such a shape that a
proposal can be made which will bring
about a fair and salisfactoryjsettloinent
of this long pending question,
!(). While ut the Coast I visited tbe
Government dockyard at Ksquimalt
ami saw the stone erushot in use there.
The foreman in charge informed me
that ii had been in use for a number
of years and that it did its work most
satisfactorily. Its mechanism is extremely simple and it is easily adjusted to break rook to various sizes. 1 saw
a large qimtitv of stone which had
beeu broken by it. He promised to
look up and forward to me for tbe information of the Couucil the name of
the makers and tlio cost of the nm
chine
11. 1 would like to add that while
at Victoria the Hon. J. Frod Hume
lent me every assistance and was always ready to do all in his power to
further tbo City's interests. I nm
gentlemen, your obedient servant,
J. K. STRACHAN, City Clerk.
Concerning tlio reservoir land Aid.
Beer said that it was more a question
of settlement than of value. Expediency was what tbo City should aim at.
There was a liability of the City
being led into tbe pnymeut of law-
costs that might bring tho prico up
above the $1500 for whioh the company
wns willing Lio settle. City Solicitor
Galliher nlso advised  along   this line.
Aid. Beer here moved |that Mr.
Strachan's report be accepted and
that the thanks of tbo Council be tendered bim for tbe efficient maimer in
Whioh ho bad transacted the City's
business while nt the Coast. The mo-
lion was seconded by Aid. McKillop
and carried.
The Mayor was iu favor of making
a check for $1000 aud giving it to Aid.
Bier, who leaves this morning tor
Victoria, to tender it to the Company
in settlement.
It was moved by Aid. Hillyer nnd
seconded by Aid. McKillop and oar-
ried, tbat Aid. Boer be authorized to
effect a settleinert.
The mutter of settling for the dnm-
uge done to lots by the water overflowing from the electrio light dam
wus thoif considered. The Mayor stated thut a settlement could be arranged
uu a basis of $1000. On motion of
Aid. Beer the matter was left to the
Board of Works to settle.
Whether or not wharfage dues shonld
be charged to make the Oity wharf self
sustaining wus the next question discussed. It wbb left to the Board of
Works.

I MINES OF I
I       KOOTENAY '
***************���***���*+**+***.
The Ymir mino and concentrator is
running regardless of the strike. Tho
management is bnsily engaged cleaning up the dump. Bnt no further development will re undertaken unlil
some definite settlement is made respecting the Eight-Hour   mining law.
* *   ���
li is rumored with a reasonable certainty, that the Queen miue, owned
by Messrs. Turner anil Waldie, adjoining the Yellowstone, is bonded to a
Canadian  syndicate  for   the sum of
|6fi, 000.
��� *    ��
Twenty five specimens of good ore
have already been collected at Ymir,
fnr the Spokane Pair and by the end of
the present week ut least that many
more will be secured. Joseph Petrie,
the locator of the Ymir mine, is iu
charge of the exhibit and will leave
for Spokane abont the end of tho
month
for one additional judge advocate general, two inspector generals, eight
quartermasters, nine commissaries of
subsistence, and two engineer officers.
The adjutant-general has called upon
the head., of these different bnreans to
designate officers for this duty. As
!the importance of having 'all the offi-
loers of the staff asked t'r .i- before the
1 next active campaign begins is recog-
i Di-.'.ed by the department.

ACCIDENT AT  THE PORTO RICO.
A Miner Falls 40 Feet  and is Severely
Injured.
There has been another accident at
the Porto Rico mine. Yesterday a
man by the name of Pat Kelly fell a
distance of 40 feet in the mine, and
was rather severely injured. Dr. Keller, of Yuiir. was immediately summoned���but says that on account of
internal complications it will take
him at the least .4 hours to diagnose
t he case.
THE INSURANCE  RATES.
The Visiting Officials Have Something
to Say to tbe Question.
The question of insurance rates is
one that is now agitating the business
men of Nelson. The Miner, the other
morning, presented what it thought
was tbe true stnte of affairs, but it has
beeu corrected by some insurance people \��ho are now visiting Nelson.
Among them are Mr. A. A. Boak, president of the Mainland Board of Fire
Underwriters; Mr. T. J. A. Liede-
mann, inspector of the Scottish Union
and National Insurance Co., Mr. O.
E. Dickson, representing R. P. Rithet
& Co., Ltd., Victoria. Theso gentlemen were interviewed by The Miner
yesterday. They stated that there
would be a readjustment of rates, a
question that would bo taken into their
consideration by tho Board of Underwriters at an early date. This has
been brought about by the enterprise
of the Nelson property owners in
ereotiug brick blocks and thus breaking up the long stretches of frame
buildings, known as "ranges" in insurance parlance���and greatly decreasing
the chances of a fire spreading when it
once breaks out in one of the bnild-
inRs. .
Should any reduction be effected it
will not be tbe result of any pressure
brought to bear by no-board oompan
ies, but will bo carrying out the prac
tice of tbe board to adjust rates to
meet the ohanges that may take place
from time to time in the way of improvements.
