Condition of Dreyfus Causes

HIS VIEW OF THE CASE
Giently
Trie
Surprised to Find That the
Wou'd Last Some
Time-
RelllieS, Aug. 8 ���The condition of
Drevfos is dtsqnioting. His wtvdernl
will oower is leudiug him s'reimili to
so tlironffh tin' present ordeal, Physi-
[.ally in1 is extremely weak; Hie

too As-o dated Press learns ih��t the
mirt ninrllal was only aide this
moruiim to oooBirler part of the secret
rloasier. The documents were submit ted to jndg'es In the order in which
they were classified. General Chinoinu
gave luoid explanations of paints
which were not clear to Ool. Jonausta
General Ohanoini took th \ doennients
individually and examined them Ma-
or Oaftler will later on itnte the .eon-
Olnsiriiifl lie (hew from the dossier and
Mni't'ifl Laholirl and Doiiingo, who
li? eual with nloso attention to Qpn-
t,ral Ulianoine's explanations, did not
enter mto the discussion on the subject, today's consideration of the dossier being ol a general character and
more in the nature of a preliminary
examination.
Paris, Aug. 8.���The Temps snjs tbat
Dreyfus was ure.itly astonished nt tbe
fact that he was brought into court a
prisoner. He.btlie.vot, nonording to
this paper, that be was entering into
the judicial formalities of immediate
rehabltation and was thanking Uen
Dt Boisertaffra for the revision of his
cats. He said in a firm voice:."Theu
it is still necessary to struggle. "
"Dreyfus" tho Temps continues,
"will he more snpridod wheu lie is
presented with the 300 documents
contained in tbe doss er ou matteis entirely outside his case."
Rennes, Auk. 8.���Emily Crawford
writes as follows of the trial of Cap
ti.in Drejlns: Mnitre Demnge, the
principal counsel for Captain Dreyfus,
expressed himself ns well satisfied
With yesbr lay's proceeding. Col
.liiuuus'a bnd to play the part of severe
jndge bnt if hie voice was commanding
tow arc the prisoner, his eye was kind
an I there wote attacks to press home
the points raised by the indictment.
M. Ohaiioine, tho custodian of the fn-
mos secret dossier, said it would take
four days to examine it and it would
be behind closed dons. Most witnesses have none to seasidos. Gen. De
Boisedettro to Diuarri and General Di-
onue to Param. General Mer ler
remains hern, the guest of Gene.al
Sair.t Germain who tells his friends to
be prepared for sensational evirieuoe
that must crush Drevtns and many
others with him. M. 'Onvaignuo talked

hu expected two conps de theatre. We
now hear that one will be an avowal
hy General Ballot that he said on 11'
soul uud conscieuca Ureyfus wus u
traitor because ho was misled. The
other will be Meroior driven to bay.
The letter is from this trial ruined if
Dreyfus is a.iiuitted. I hear he intends to thrown searchlight on the
secret councils of the Dupuy Government of which ho was a member iu
1801 and to bIiow what diplomatic
Wires were pulled betweeu the arrest
Of Dreyfus and his embarkation for
Liiycuue. Meroier refuses to be interviewed. Ho looks bowed down from

There seoms danger that all tho evidence relating to foreign diplomatists
will be given with closed doors.
The publio trial will be resumed ou
Sn.'urdny.
Dreyfus.a member of his family telle
ine, has not yet got over his. Rip Van
Winkle feeling He was lost, ns be
putsit. He remarked to his wife that
he was astonished to find himself 50s
teday watched by the whole world, or
its proxies, though he showed no astonishment he wus throwu in it heap
by the searching, and as he thought,
unfriendly examination by the president of the court martial. He hnd
expected more formal proceedings. M,
Demage and J.aboi did not prepare him
for a hostile tribunal nnd a scrutinizing miblic. He felt ns if the X rays
were being cast cn him for all the
time he was under publio gaze. It
was as it the inmost thoughts of his
heart were hei.ig peered into. He im-
ngilled in the proceedings would only
be formal aud that perhaps be might
leave the extemporized court house
10 walk to his wife's temporary home.
His counsel were quite right not to
discourage him before hand as his
streuKlh is low and he is condemned
to a diet ol milk and eggs which does
not enable 11 im rapidlv to recover his
lost strength. Ague has caused lesiou
of the enalorrgaus and a full diet just
now would uot fail to bring ou
Hriuht's disoase. He was at first
greatly depiessed to lenin that he
wonld bo confronted with a crow'd of
hostile witnesses and that Ihe trial
might last a fortnight and three weeks
or even longer. Then steeling himself, he cried: "x*ou most prove
yourself a man Dreyfus "Vou must,
snuggle for your honor and not .give
in until yon have cleared it once and
forever, But what have you done,
Dreyfns, to make people thus tend
you? Were you born under a malig-
limit star? if so tight, against fate
and wrestle nutil you have thrown the
evil angel"

Wtprney-Genentl, will be opposed when he comes up for re-election ano.5
^there are most excellent prospects of defeating him. Henderson is��

One Lynching Episode That Will Cause

Washington, Ang. 8.���The State Department has received from the Italian
authorities a oopy of the report made
by the Marquis Romano, Seoretory of
the Italian Embassy, on his investigation of tbe lynching of five Italians
in Louisiann. The report presen ts the
affair in a serious light and shows
that the Italian authorities view the
occurrence aa oue of unusual atrocity.
It contends that there were no mitigating circumstances, that Dr Hodges
first drew a weapon and that the first
shot fired by Defatto was in defense
of his brother, and not a wanton attack. Describing the affair in detail,
the report points out that some time
after the first two men wero lynched
the mob made a second anl then a
third visit to the jail from whence
they removed and lynched three other
Italians, all of whom, it is contended,
wero iu it or ignorance of tho wouiiel-
nig of Dr. Hodges. Conceding some
extenuating circumstances in the
lynching of the two men immediately oonoerned in Dr. Hodges' case,
Marquis Romano contends that the
lynching of the; other three was a
I hi un of particular ntrouity.

The
Ihe Two  Disinguished Diplorats Pre_
sent Th i Views of the Canadian
Premier's Speeoh.
London, Auir.8. ���Mr. Jos. B.Choate,
LI. S. Ambassador to Great Britain,
interviewed today by a representative
of the Associated Press in rogard to
the recent "War or Arbitration"
speech delivered by Sir Wilfrid Laurier, the Canadian Premier, said:
"There will be no war. It is safe to
say that no amount of politics or politicians iu either country conld occasion
war in this connection." Tbe Ambassador, continuing, snid "The Canadian Parliament was on tbe eve of
dissolution and the leaders of both
parties hnd to speak." Mr. Choate
soemed to think the latter circumstances explained Sir Wilfrid Laurier's
position and was inclined to attach
small importance to the Premier's remark. Mr. Choate added that negotiations aro progressing, "But" be explained, "tbey aie always slow and I
can say nothing at present as to their
status."
Regarding Mr. Cbonte's statement,
the Canadian High Oommissioner.Lord
Stratbooua uhd Mount Royal, said to a
representative of the Associated Press:
"Sir Wilfrid Laurier's remark wa'
merely n fieure of speech aud not a
niiirical dodge as intimidated by M-.
Choate. 8ir Wilfrid cculd not desoerd
to such n thing, nor did he in an
way mean to challenge the Unitei.
States. No sensible man could regur .
war ae'possible, but Canada is siraplv
taking a leaf ont.of the United Hta'as'
book in demanding uow what tbe
United States demanded in the Van-
ezuelau case. Canada is now a nation,
tbeiugh closely allied���to Great Britain.
As such she must protect her righte.
We merely ask for an equitable settle -
uieiit through i.rbitration, following
the United States lead. We believe
President McKiuley thoronghly in far-
nest in his ondBnvor to have tbe question honestly settled. The understanding of Sir Wilfrid's remarks bv
the United States press is uufortunxte
Any bitterness or abuse by the Can
adian press is ahsoutoly unauthorized. The negotiations are progressing
and I beliieve a satisfactory settlrnent
of the Alaskan question will be achieved. "

English Government  Has   Made
up its Mind to That.
Loudon, Aug.   8 ���In tho  House   of
Commons today the Secrtoary of  State
for India, Lora George   Hamilton, introducing   tbe   Indian   Budget,   said,
after careful consideration the Government had deliberately concluded that a
gold standard was required   in the interests of   India and   that thev   would
not be deterred   from   prosecuting the
polioy  by all thd means in their power
merely beoause   the   next phase in the
advancement  was    coinoielent   with a
temporary failure of   the   rain.   "If"
continued   the  Secretary.   "We could
establish a great bank   like the  banks
of England   and France, it would be a
fruitful   ally   in   establishing a   gold
standrad."   Continuing Lord   George
Hamilton said he hoped   the new oen-
tury wonld  bo associated with a series
of financial surpluses   in   India available for   the  reduotion  of   taxes, and
industrial development   which  would
combine to give India the fullest value
I of its association   with   tho   cheapest,
do-1 largest and most fructifying market in
the I tbe world.   The   surplus,   he said,   iu
conoluBion, thia year will be 44,0(10,000
rupes.

Mr Seuiliu's Government will
hardly dispute the contention so frequently made, that Federal expenditure iu British   Columbia are not   in
proportion to the revenue contribulcd
by the Province. Tie other duv a sum
of over six millions was appropriated
in nid;<jf railways, and not a dollar of
it come'B to us. But it is not ouly
in the matter of railway subsidies; expenditures for public purposes of
all kinds are made with sparing baud
whence, requirements of this Province are under consideration. This
has often been maele ihe subject of remark, aud the people, without distinction of party, have signified their dis
satisfaction with it. Tbey do uot
claim that revenue should be the exact
measure of these appropriations, but
believe that there should bo a closer
approximatiou to it than has yet been
mauifested in tho case of British Columbia. Even Mr. Semlin will not
dispute this; indeed, he has been
known to give his hearty assent tn
it. If the principle is good qb between
the Provinces and the Dominion, it is
also good as between a portion of the
Province and the whole of it. Tbat
poiut was mada at the convention of
Associated Boards of Trade tbe other
day. The delegates mainlined that appropriations in aid of roads and trails
in the mining districts of British
'Jolurnbia have not been commensurate with the revenue derived from
theiu. Everyone in the least familiar
with-, these matters will agree with
this. The Kootenay region has been a
largo contributor to Provincial revenue, while it is well known to bave
been treated with marked parsimony
in respect to those uescessary conveniences tor the prosecution of the mining industry, roads, bridges, aud
trails. Iu fact,development, is discouraged through want of them. It iB a matter of very great importance to thiB
section of the Province, and has mote
than once been pressed upon the attention of tbe Government. Perhaps
when Mr. Semlin and his colleagues
next permit themselves to grow indignant at the boggarly appropriations
doled out at Ottawa to a Provin a that
is generous in its contributions lo tbe
common treasury, they will remember
that they are themselves culpable in
like manner and degree.
Another point made by the convention Was tbat tbe system under which
these appropriations are expended is
not osculated to produce the best results. A change in this respect is recommended. A similar objection was
made by Tbe Miner a week ur two
ago, and it is glad to have this influ
ential endorsement of it.
bins ciiuunt be sustained, mil that we
'ahull hnve to accept the more oatural
land common sense explanation that
I tbe convention   was a   purely business
mil', with distinctly business  views on
tbo questions discussed by it.
It is wiib some knowledge of human
nnture Tbe Greenwood Miner observes: "Now that Mr. Martin is foi
the present beaten, it is not charitable to abuse him. or to exult over his
defeat. In the less refined p'lysiual
contests between opponents, it is considered unmanly to kick a man when
be is down, and The Miner does not
propose to adopi a different course
whore tbe issues of a political fight nre
involved. If the press and politicians
of British Columbia opposed to the
Altorney-Qeiurnl do not desire to turn
sympathy in his direction and reinstate him in popular favor, they should
not ndopt unmanly atactics. It was
tbe bitter attacks on him at tbe outset
thnt brought him into sudden promi-
lence in tho Province, and they rany
posaibly resurrect him."

The pos-
Winnipeg newspapers are still discussing Government ownership of railways, not a very live quesiion but one
seemingl.5 of considerable local inter
est. One of them, The Free Press,
publishes a letter from a correspondent in New Zealand, who gives a discouraging report of Govern merit operation in thnt colouy. The fares aro five
cents per mile for first class nnd throe
cents for second, while tho first
class accommodation is said to
be inferior to C. P. R. second
class. If these were the only
objections, Oanadi ns would no
doubt find a way lo overcome them.
Accommodation can be improved under the pressure of public opiniou, and
the same pressure hits been, known to
effect reductions in public charges,
postage as an example. The objections
lio deeper than these   trifles in details.
The special cm respondent nt Vancouver of our namesake at Rossland
should know that it is not left to Mr.
Henderson to resign his seat as member next week. The moment he wi s

The inout intelligent aud influential
assemblage ot business men that hns
so far heen seen in Southern British
Columbia was the convention of Associated Boards of Trade recently held
in Rossland. Notwithstanding the
eminent,respectability of it, however, it
stands!' accused of all sorts cf sinful
practices, one of the worst being that
it was.governed iu all it did by strong
political bias. For example, the
Eight-Hour question was taken np
for the sole purpose of disparaging the
Government and especially the putative
uuthofr of the law, Mr. Joseph Martin.
It is hard to say what is secretly iu
the minds of men. Perhaps the score
or twoof representative business mon
of this end of the Province gathered
from all quarters of it in order to have
a shy at a dead horse, but it is one of
the most improbable things a sane
person would dream of conceiving.
But if animosity toward Mr. Martin
was tin' impelling motive, it is some-
tluurftb tho credit of the convention
that tlie members of it were impurtiiil
in their distribution of censure. Mr.
Martin is a Liberal, and the presumption 0| that a majority of the delegates
wore"Oonservatives. Beiug Conservatives, they naturally took a delight in
opposing themselves to the person
who wus so reoently the representative of the Liberal party in tho Semlin
Administration. Unfortunately, how-
over, for their reputation for consistency, tfiey did not let it rest at that.
Nothing woulrt satisfy them until they
had thrown a stone at the leader of the
Dominion Opposition, who is the
father--of all Conservatives. Iu tho
House at Ottawa a short time ago the
Minister of Railways proposed to take
power to the Government to ootnpel
railway companios receiving pnblio
subsidies to looate their stations as directed. Sir Charles Tuppor opposed
this.and tn such purpose that the clause
covering it was abandoned, at least
for the present session. Whatldo theso
partisan delegates at Rossland do but
carry a resolution exptejsing their
regret that Mr. Blair's proposed legislation failed, coupled with the hope
that it would yet be enacted, as tho
matter was one "that should receive
the Un media t" and earnest attention ot
tbe Minister of Kail ways. "    For   par-
Mr. Frank Oliver's Bulletin has hnd
the Edmonton field (to itsolf since the
day it was established, ovor^ twenty
years ago. But at last it has a rival,
in The Edmonton Post, and with Mr.
T. A. Gregg as editor readers of The
Minei will understand that Mr. l<Jli-
ver's bed will not continue in downy
as it has been. The Post in politics
will be indepoudeut, but with a pronounced   leaning to Conservatism.

Tim Oity Olerk rend a lnttir from
Premier Sam I in in response to one
askiuu for a title to thn Government
wharf for the Cily. Tbe etter only
enclosed a copy of the Order in Counoil
deoinring the wharf to be the property
of the Oitv. This was hardlv Kood
euungb, even for the eitv Solicitor.
Aid. Kbtcher thought the Government should give the City the adjoining land as well as the wharf.
Hi thought the City Solicitor should
have a proper conveyance made to the
City from the I'rovincial Government,
with a map attached showing exactly
how much property the City wonld
acquire, Then enmo a discussion us
to what Improvements should be inailo
to the wharf, the sanie being now iu
an unsatisfactory condition and tbe
City now possibly liable for repair. A
suggestion of toll gates brought Aid.
Hillycr to the fore Ho stienonsly op
pr'sed anything that wonld iutefere
with the rights of 'ho Nelson Saw
Mill. Th conversation then drifted
round to the nation of the Turner Government in clnsing Slocan Btreet and
the sale of tbe laud there to the Hull
Mines Aid. Pleteher was greatly
distressed because the old trail to 4!i
ei ek was now closed and a road to
the mines in that locality wonld now
have to go through part of tbe C. P.
R. yard. Ho had gone to the trouble
of preparing a speoial mnp which hi
now produced before tne Council. The
City Solicitor did not feel justified
iu udvisiug anv hostile action to be
taktn by the City aud then the Coon
oil's attention switohed round to the
special business of the meeting namely
the reservoir land question.
Mr. H. Selous, W. J. G. Dickson anil
0. Stewart had been appointed^ valuators for the land aud their report wus
then read. It was ralber hard to follow but eivdently their opinion as to
the value of tbe debatable land and
tho damage done to lb was :'iifferen.t
to that of Mr. Joshua DuvieB. In faot
oue of the valuators (Mr.Dioksou) who
attended tne meeting, s��emod t. think
that the wator flume had improved the
value ot tho land. The City Solicitor
advised a conciliatory offer iu spit*
Of what the valuees thought Aid
Hillyer would not pay u oeut more for
the land theu what it was worth.
Finally on tbe motion of Aid. Beer
it.was resolved to go as tar as a certain price ( which at this stage of the
proceedings it would be as well not
to publish) and uo farther. The Oitv
also intend that the prioe tbey pay will
Rive them some six or seven lots ol
land and satisfy all demnnds..
the mayor wns authorized to send
the necessary onsh to ihaOitv Solicitor
as soon as he could come to terms with
Joshua Davits' lawyers.
Mr. Morris appeared for the gas company and dosired to cull attention to a
letter of bis, written some 14 days ago
i" which he asked the City to pay part
��t the expense of moving the rook ou
Stanley street which the gas company
are now having excavated.
Ou motion of aid. Beer it waB resolved that the Oity Engineer examine in-
10 the business and report as to the
necessity of tbe Crty doing anything to

A Eich Slocan Property��� The
Latest From Ymir.
POISONED AT A PICNIC.
Elinira. Aug. 8 ���Four young men
in Elknad, Tioga Cniiuty, Pa., died
and.Ianlv, within ~>1 hours up to 10
o'clock "this morning. All were similarly affected. Previous to death it is
thought that they all drank woofl nl-
oohol nt n picnic on Sunday. Several
others an seriously ill and two aie
expected to tlie.
Mr. 0.   S.   Drummond,   Mr.    Brnoa
Archibald, Capt. Duncan, and Mr.
Woakes, chief engineer of the Dnncnn
Mines, returned yesterday from a tup
throngh the Slocan. Mr. Druinniond
aud Mr. Archibald went to nee the
Queen Hess, thsy boing the executive
committee of the Queen Bess directorate in London. In conversation with
The Miner Mr. Drumoinnd said that
everythijg wbb very satisfactory at the
mine. Underground timbering and
carpentering work were going ou at
present. It is IS months since Mr.
Drumoinnd last visited tlie Slocan but
it is two and a half years since he
first inspected mines there. On this
trip ho noticed a general improve-
meut in tie country. The business
like appearance of Sandon was particularly noticeable and the general aspect
of the railway business was encouraging. All the mines seemed to have
become richer with depth, The Queen
Bess oertainly bad. Speaking of the
Eight-Hour law Mr Drummond said he
could not understand the necessity of it.
Taking the Queen Bess as an instance
he said that the men there were perfectly satistiel to work ten hours a day
or $3 50 aud the management was
willing to pay it as ten hour* shifts
would faciltate the working of the
mine. But $:!.50 for eight hours would
place the wages ahead of anything
paid anywhere else in the world. The
miue owners were auxiou: ti get to
work nnd the men were no doubt anxious to do likewise. A solution of the
difficulty ought to be found on grounds
fair to both uarites without the interference of people who are in no wny
interested.
Mr. Woakes. being seen by tho ropot-
ter, gave an interesting account ofj his
planB for the thorough development  of
the Queen Bess mine.    As an evidence
of   his satisfaction   with   the   appearance of the mine the   company has deoided to drive a deep level tunnel.    At
present   the   lowost tunnel.   No fl.   ia
down asn feet and the new one will go
3'<!0.feet lower, making a. total di pth of
570 feet. This new tunnel will    evelop
the property a,000 feet alonR   the vein.
It will go iu 1200 feet beforo it is ex
pectert the big ore chute will he struck.
When it is   completed   thero  will  ho
about a mile of tunnelling ou the property.    The   surveys   are   now     being
made nnd as soou as thev are completed
the  tnnuel    will   be. commenced.    It
will be driven by   contract at so much
a foot.    A Peltou wheel will operate a
fan for the purpose  of   ventilating the
tunnel.    A shaft   will   be   sunk  from
No. 6 tunnel to the   lower   one,   both
operations going on at once so that the
shaft will reach   the tunnel   as soou as
the latter   gets   to   the   pioper  place.
This shaft is   already   down   75   feet.
These new workings will greatly facil
itate the mining operations as   all   the
ore will be handled at the bottom tunnel.    At   its mouth lnrge ore bius will
be ereoted and 400 tons of oro   will  be
shipped each mouth.    The whole mine
will be   well   veutilated and   drained.
There   is   now   enough   ore   in  sight-
to keep the   management   buoy   while
the   lower     tunnel    is   being   driven,
which will take about twelve months.
The   operations   in   this   tunnel   will
Dot interfere with the steady output of
tho mine.

A group of .nining men wore discussing mining matters in general yesterday afternoon and they came to tho
conclusion that the present was about
the most favorable time to buy properties that has occurred in recent years.
Owing to the mines of tho country being cloBed down outside holders seem
to be afraid of the future aud many
good properties cnu bo picked up for a
song.
Many have heard nf the richness of
the silver ores of tho Hlocan country,
but few have an idea of how rich
thes8 ores are. By a careful OHttfstation it was recently shown that the
