Yesterday's Evidence Was in
Favor nf the Prisoner.
COL. HENRY'S DUPLICITY
OoDBe and Picquart Oonfronted-Artillery
Officer* Saj Tbat Bo.dereau Displays Ignorance of Guns.
ReiineH, Sept. a. ���Tbero  was a large
atteudunoe  and  n number of  generals
at tho Lyeee this morning at the open
inn of the last   session   of   the  fourth
week of the DreyluH eourt-murtial.
Tho interest centred In tho testimony
if Major Hartmann, of tbe artillery,
��� inch waa interrupted by an  adjourn-
put of court  yesterday.    The major,
nK_. ��� -.
who has done gi eat service for the defend', resumed his important deposition regarding artillery matters and
bringing out of points nnd phraseology
in tho bordereau, indicating that the
writer could not be Dreyfus.
The witness wished to enter into the
qnestion ot the Robin shell, but '.n
General De Loye objecting to a statement of the subjeot in open court, Major Harttnann askod to he allowed to
give it behind clos��d doorB, saying it
wonld take him only a few minutes to
call attention to the point he had in
wind.
Col. .lounst decided to hear this part
of the witness's testimony i" camera at
the end of today's or at tbe beginning
of Monday's session. In response to
questions from Mnitres Labor! and
Demange, Major Hartmann said auy
officer intending the Ohalons enrup
could havo obtained sufficient information to write ���oto3 ou the "overii,c' of
troops and MndnBasoar matters. M.
Labori then recalled Gens Meroier's
attack 011 Oaptain Freystattor and the
laltrrr's declaration that the secret dossier communicated to the oourtmartinl
of 10S4, contained a document cou-
cerning a shell, for which General
Me?uier called the captain a liar.
Major Hartman today affirmed that,
it was quite possible that particulars
abont a certain shell might have leaker! out in 1804.
Au interesting confrontation between
Gen, DoLnyo aud Major Hartninnn
followed, the general declaring he did
not believe the mujor was keeping
strictly to truth. De Loye then proceeded to point to what he said were
inaccuracies in Major Harttnann's testimony. He insisted that Drefyus, in
ooorae of conversations with artillery
officers,could have secured information
on the subjects mentioned in the bordereau, to which the major r.rtorted
that if any artillery officer had been
questioned by Dreyfus, ho would have
already come forward to say so, as a
matter ol strict doty.
General De Love, questioned hy M.
Labori nnd M. Demange, said that the
inventor of the Robin shell told him
that Dreyfns never asked him fot particulars about his shell, except on n
minor point. The general added that
he came its a technical witness to show
Dreyfns could bo guilty, he could ouly
��ay that Dreyfus' contention that it
whs impossible for him to know oer-
1,1111 matters referred to in the bordereau was untrue.
M. Labori nsked General De Loye if
no knew whether tne documents
which could have been betrayed hy tho
traitor, especially by the writer of
the borderean, were important, whereupon the genoral turned to counsel nnd
excitedly cried: "Don't ask me, don't
ask me," These exolaraations oreoted
a seusatiou in court, whioh wns
doubled when Gon.De Loye added that
"iore wbb sufficient iu the bordereau to
establish that tho traitor knew theirn-
dereau from a grammatical point of
view declaring it bo his conviction,after studying closely the styles of Dreyfns and Esterhazy, that the latter
wrote it. Witness went into on interesting analysis cf the phraseology of
rhe bordereau pointing ont that certain
phrases in it were met with in Ester-
uazy's letters but never in those of
Dreyfns.
He then said the influence exercised
ou Esterhazy by his linguistic acquirements showed notable traoes of German construction.
The Government Commissary, Major
Oarriere, who is always blundering,
asked M. Havet if he had been present
at the session of tho conrt before he
nud testified? Havet laid: "Yes,"
at which the major with severity said :
"Yon havo been guilty of a grave
itreach of judiciary discipline."
To this M. Havet quietly remarked:
"But I had not beeu summoned as
a witness at the time I attended the
sesions."
Major Can iore sat down cheok-
mated.
Th? letters exchanged between Ool.
Picquart and Gen. Gonse, at the time
the colouol warned a thorough investigation into the case, were then read
and M. Labori pointed ont to Gen.
Gonse that these letters weie never alluded to in the alleged confession of
Dreyfus. Gen. Gome replied tbat he
mways advised Col. Pioquart net to
mix up the Esterhazy aud Dreyfns case.
Dreyfns, "* added, had been condemned and his caBe could not be re-
..penetl, hot Ihey were bound to see if
there was uot another traitor. The
general then made bitter complaint
of the fact that his letter. had been
communicated to M. Scheurer-Kestuer,
the former vice-president of the Sen-
ttte who published them in a book entitled "Pontius Pilate." Replying to
M. Labori, Gen. Gonse insisted that
Dreyfus, having beeu condemned, it
was not his duty to go back to his
case A scene between Gen. Gonse and
Ool. Picquart followed. The latter being culled Baid he gave Gen. Goose's
letters io his lawyer, wheu he realized
that be was the object of abominable
intrigues and when he received in
Tunis �� letter of threats from the late
i.'ol. Henry, seut with the assent of
Generals Gonse and De Boisdeffre.
Ool, Pioquart added that he was not
responsible for the subsequent pnblioa-
tiou of letters.
In reply Gen. GoiiS'i said he hud not
given his consent to Henry's letter nnd
that Col. Picquart perceived maohiiiii-
tions against him everywhere Pioquart then declared that he showed
hi in the seoret dossier, therefore, ho
claimed Gen. Gonse could easily bave
acquainted himself with the probability that Dreyfus   was iiiuocont

quart was in Tunis and (louse admitted that one letter was opened and thai
tlio words of this letter were nsed in
forging a telegram which was Intended lo destroy the val e of the petit
bleu.
The general insisted, however, Ih .t
only suspected letters undressed to
Pioquart were opened.
Picquart replied emphatically tnat
all bis letters were opened.
Disoussing the  "Esperenza" letters,
Labori  said   the    last  letter    having
been preserved  and   not  returned   by
Picquart, might   bo   considered a forgery.   Ool.   Jouast rebuked Labori for
raising a discussion and counsel retorted warmly that he intended, according
to article 819 of the code, to say whatever he considered proper on a  matter
which conld bring light. Counsel then
ques'ioued  Geueral (rouse on the subject of  tho   late Col   Henry's   forgery
and the general replied   that   he  considered it  an  unfortunate   manoeuvre
diiected     against  Dreyfus     and  not
against Picquart.
Henry, desired to furnish fresh proof
against Dreyfus of which there was
really no need, witness added, as the
dossier contained sufficient proofs.
M. Labori at once asked what they
were, but Jouast refused to put the
question. Counsel thereupon deolared
he would draw up a formal application
for these papers.
The next witness, M. Do Fond La-
mothe, a former officer of artillery,
testified that ill 18114, Picquart lent
hi in a firing manual which he might
have kept as long as he pleased. "Ho"
witness added,"there was little secrecy
at tho time. Any officer could have
obtained one in August 18114. Another
point iu favor of Dreyfus is that no
probationer could have believed in
181)4 that, he would go to the innn-
oervies. "
The olerk of the envrt read the circular dated May 15, 181)4, announcing
that probationers would not go to
the manouevres.

Londou,   Sept.   3. ���This conntry   is
apparently on the eve of a sailor's and
fireman's    strike   that  will   paralyze
commerce, yet so far tbe matter has received only passing notice in tbe British Press aud has  attracted practically
no publio  interest.    The trouble a��rose
over a manifesto to the ship owners ot
the Seamen's Union inviting them to
confer ou the question of fixing a  rate
for firemen  and  snilors on steamers of
��11 and for sailors on  sniling  ships  of
��4 monthly, whioh is a slight advance
in the average wages now paid at vor-
ious British  ports.    The ship  owners
utterly  ignorod tho Union,   with the
result that  the latter have   planned   a
strike at   every    port of  the  United
Kingdom to commence   jext  Monday.
Mr. Joseph    Havelock   Wilson,   member of Parliament for Muldlesborougli,
a  Radical, but who  was elected more
particularly   as  a labor represenative,
has beeu addressing meetings at Liverpool, Bristol, Newcastle and Glasgow.
Tbe stewards and cooks, it   is  said,
have joinjid forces  with* the  seamen,
but tho wage iBsuo^ is ��� now rather, secondary to the recognition of the Union
by tho shipowners.    Any offer   ti   negotiate   byj the latter would;; prohabjy
defer and possibly prevent the   strike
The men claim that   though   the shin-
ping  trade has improved tbo   workers
condition has remained  stationery.
Already the force of the strike movement is beginning to be felt Fearing
that it would be unable to get n crew

Berlin, Sept. 8.��� The  general   opinion expressei hero is that war between
Groat Britain and   the Tranvaal is almost unavoidable.    Many articles from
the pens of well Known  writers  have
appeared   this   week     in   that   Sense.
Nearly all sympathize with the Boeis.
T >e tone of the   Independent   Press is
about tbo same.    There   is   no  doubt
that the Government,   if  not  exactly-
friendly to Great Britain in this qnar-
rel has resolved to abstain from aotive
interference.    This fact whioh the correspondent here of tbe Associated Press
has repeatedly had  from  an authentic
source,    is   again    corroborated    this
week.    The said correspondent's informant stated  that  reliablo information
which  has   reached  the   Government
for months past, made it  evident lhat
its opinion about, the Pretoria Government had to be   revised.   It  would be
neither wise nor to  Germany's   interests to take sides against Great Britain
in an attempt to right certain wrongs.
Ho   added   that the German   Government of course would be siucerely sorry
co see war break out in the Transvaal.
The Kreuz Zeitung  in a  sober   editorial   expresses   regret   that  in    the
event of war,  victory  will  finally  be
on the Bide  of Great Britaiu   iu  suoh
au unequal struggle.
oial of the Firemen's Union is quoted
as sayiug he believed tbo strike was
inevitable, but���thouglu it would only
last for a week, tbe ship owners then

The shipping Gazette, speaking for
the ship owners, says they are justified
in ignoring tbe communication from

around and responded, the bullet missing its mark but lodging in the   door.

The raft parted soon after and the mate

Rossland, Sept.    2.���A most import
ant find has been   mude in the Mascot,
a   property which is being operated by
tbe Big Three   Mining  Company.     A
vein of ore which is nbout six  feet   in
width has beeu located   which   carries
two feet of clean ore, uud the   rest   cf
mixed ore; it goes $246.61 to  tbe ton,
Mr. W. Y.    Williams,    tho   superintendent of tho property,   from tbe first
has bad fiith   in it, and   it  has  heen
on bis recommendation that the   work
bas been carried on, aud   ho is,  therefore, naturally elated over the   important find that has been made. Mr. Williams   learned the  particulars  of   the
find yesterday.    Tunnel No. S was extended 46 feet  during   the  past  week
and its total length   in now   786   feet.
The ledge was encountered in this tunnel during Ihe week and work is being
carried on at   present   along the  "eiu.
The most   sntisactory   results were obtained from the ore encountered in the
tunnel   as will bo  seeen from the following   aBiay   of  a    general    sample
taken from tho face of the tunnel, silver 201.76 ounces, value, 1121.15; gold,

per cent,   value,   $7.56.    Total value,
$264.(11.
One of the moil, gratifying feature*
of the week from a mining staud-
,r..iiit has been tbe increase in the ore
production which hns uot only turned
the 100,000 ton mark for 18"9, hut has
also broken the record for weekly shipments, and this, nm withstanding thut

PRESERVE THK FORESTS.
Tho Kaslo Hoard of Trade bus put
tlio entire Province under obligation
to it. We have to wait to see what influence its memorial will have, hut
the fact that one has been drafted and
sent to the Government is much to its
oredit, and it can uow await tbe
issue with the consciousness of knowing that what it could do it has done.
That is more thau all Boards of
Trade can say. We refer to a memorial addressed to tbo Minister of Lands
ami Works, strongly urging that the
Government should make the fullest
possible provision against forest fires.
No more valuable publio service could
be performed by a Hoard of Trade. It
may be that Ministers will ignore it
and do nothing, but that will he the
fault, not of those Kaslo gentlemen
who bave moved in the matter, but of
the Government who will prove by
their inaction that they are indifferent to tbe public interest or have not
the intelligence to appreciate it.
The time has come in Canada when the
piotection aud preservation of its forests has become a matter of vital ini-
pnrtiince. That was recognised several years ago by the older Provinces, in whioh legislation to that end
brrs been passed. It has been recognised by the Dominion, whoBO Government hns established a bureau of forestry and appointed a diligent nnd
capable official to take charge of lt.
The Dominion is a large owner of
timber lands, and realises tbe increas
ing value of them ; it roslises also tbe
necessity of protecting as well as it
can tbe timber wealth of the country
against tbe ruinous waste to which
it hns been exposed. Nowhere is tbat
necessity greater than in British Columbia. Today wo may not be able
to appreoiate the worth of our forests,
but in tho lifetime of our children not
a stick of timber in valley or on moun-
tuin throughout tbe vast region of our
Piovinoe but will have its value. The
wise man looks forward to this, and
is anxious that measures should betaken to reap tbe full   advantage of it.
That is what the KaBlo Board of
Trade desires to see done. Its members have personal knowledge of the
waste that is going on through neglect to provide against forest fireB.
Every year they witness tbe destruction of wealth, that is all the nitre
lamentable because in many instances
it might have been avoided. That destruction is eansed through carelessness, some of it so culpable as to deserve exemplary punishment. Thoy
have known fires to be started by
men who desired to clear off a slope
for prospecting. Carelessness in guarding against their spreading has resulted in great loss. Others have originated iu camp fires of wen employed
by tbe Government on public works.
In a dozen Other ways, all attended
with tne usnal carelessness, fires
bave beeu stalled that have caused loss
that it is impossible to estimate
Tncre is a law that is supposed to
guard against these, but it is inefficient It is inadequate in its provisions,
nnd no intelligent effort is made to enforce it. Only a short time ago a lire
destroyed mucli valuable timber growth
only n mile or two out of Nelsou, and we have never beard of
the first Btep or any step being
taken to discover the origin of
it, which was easy to do, and to punish tlm offenders. The memorial of the
Kaslo Board of Trade is a request that
a little mole purpose and earnestness
be put into the law and its operation,
The Government can improve on existing canditious, anil they aro asaed to
do it. That improvement is not only
desirable but nocessury, if wo are to
preserve the forests of the Province
from further destruction. In bringing
tbe matter to the attention of the Government the Kaslo Board cf Trade has
dune a good work, and that it may
bear fruit will be the oarnest wish of
every citizen of British Columbia wbo
accustoms himsolf to see beyond the
end of his nose aud who feels a concern for the welfare of the future.
The Kaslo Board of Trade is busy
these days. In addition to the memorial respecting forest fires, to which reference is made elsewhere on ibis puge,
it is engaged in piekng a bone with
the Minister of Marino at Ottawa.
Aud, as in the other ciise. it has right
and reason ou its side. Last July the
Kaslo boats were ordered to report at
Nelson for inspection. Thn gentlemen
of tbn Board of Trade believe that it
is much easier for  the inspector to go
to tbe boats thau for the bouts to go to
tbe inspector, un opinion which will
appeal to most persons us an eminently
sensible one. Therefore tlio? ask Sir
Louis Davies to order Ins inspector to
visit Kaslo. and thus save boat owners
the $20, $110, or $40 expense which
Ivoul'l be incurred in each instance if
tbey havo to wait on His High Mightiness at Nelson. There should be no
doubt as to the reception tho Minister
will give tbis request.
The accuracy of Tbe Colonist's interview with Mr. Macpherson is disputed. Mr. Macpherson declares iu a letter that ho did not say the things attributed to him; the correspondent
who took notes of the interview makes
affidavit tbat the report is substantially
oarrect in every particular. We aro
disposed to believe the correspondent,
while at the sumo time maintaining
that it does not matter a pinch of snuff
what Mr. Machperson said, or may
say, or thinks, or believes. He is n
very ordinary person, nnd by no
means the kind of one around whom
would centre a politioal crisis. He will
never make or unmake a Government.
Tbo Victoria Globe hits him off happily when it says that be de-ires to
be understood as opposing the Government, but wants to keep the fact quiet
for a time. If it will afford tbe gentleman tbe least Satisfaction, we hope
he will keep it so profonndly quiet
tbat no one will ever bear of it until
it goes off of itself.
When The Columbian, of New Westminster, abandoned its contention that
tbe new century would begin on the
let of January, 11)00, the whole world
realised tbat tbe controversy was settled in favor of 1001. But that did not
end the perplexities by any means.
Another and most vexatious one has
arisen in Germany. We have been accustomed to abbreviations, such as '84,
'9li, 'i)H; what shall be tbe abbreviation for mOO? The Courts have already
declared tbat it cannot be '00, tor cyphers mean nothing. But tbe Post-
office is less strict, and is willing to
concede tbat '00 may do. TtiB may
not be wholly conscientious, for it is
admitted in connection with it that
otherwise it would bo necessary to alter all tbo stamping apparatus used in
tbe postal service throughout the Empire. Bringing the matter home to
ourselves, a paper expresseses the belief
thnt Mr. Mulock "will deal with this
as with other mutters in a manner calculated to give entire satisfaction."
We do not know what Mr. Mulock
can do, or that he bas any authority to
do anything. He does not make our
laws, or even establish our customs.
And as there is no law to make 00
mean 18110, so there is no law to say
that '00 shall not be understood to
mean 1900.

Considerable Interest was around
wl,en Kennedy was haled before Magistrate Urease this morning. A portion of ihe customary crowd that at-
tends the hearing of criminal cases during tbe assizes was present to cheer the
heart of the prisoner with frequent
anil audible expectorations.
Kennedy is not a prepossessing looking youth. Pale, sallow complexion,
heavy features and a cast in the eyes
together with his manner in court give
one the impression that he is not n
subject to be dealt with aR a first
offender. Ho seemed absolutely unconcerned about his posilion and is
said to havo statod that if tho magistrate could undertake not to give him
> broader penalty than three years he
would plead (jnilty to whatever ho wan
charged with. What Mr. Urease had
to say in answer to this magiianionious
proposition did not transpire. No
rimibt his worship might soeut an immoral contraot but then unfortunately
the case does not come undor the sum-
mory Juirsdictiou Act, so the prisoner
could not plead guilty before Mr.
Ortaae. Kennedy has time yet to
make a similar proposal to the judge of
assize; or, should ho elect for a speedy
trial, thon to the august and learner! county court judge for Kootenay.

AN}  AMOUNT OF OOAL.
Ool Prior; M. P., has been looking
ai tbo Orow's NeBt coal fields and
iiomes 10 this conclusion: "To my
mind it wonld be impossible to place
loo great a value on these coal fields
The quantity of ooal in sight shows
that if the mines wero worked for a
hundred years on a large scale, the
"mount taken ont would be as nothing
when compared with the snpply. The
market for thia fuel, wbieh even now
is Rood, will be immensely increased
'�� tho next year or two, owing to the
������rectum of smelters in the Kootenay
"istict, and also to the fact that
American companios prefer it to other
W-ea, Already some of the smelting
oomnauies at Untie and Helena have
tried it and report it to be the best
tout thoy have over used.''

KOOTENAY   RIFLES.
Drill Hull is Much Needed and so Are
Funds For the Same.
The Nelson corps of the Kootenay
Rifles will utteud at the shooting range
for target pructioe tomorrow at 1 p. 111.
Civilians who desire to participate in
the shooting must be there promptly
at the aforesaid hour. Owing to the
wet weather the coips have had to use
the skating rink for drilling. Tho
last drill that was hold there impressed the members of the corps with the
fact that the need of a drill hall was
never greater than at present. When
the long winter evenings set iu and the
rink is frozen over it will be impossible for the companv to hi ld regular
drills which will soon tell upon the
efficiency of tho corps which was recently left in such thoroughly good
condition by Setgt. Carroll
It is hoped that some Isteps will
speedily be taken to secure the grant of
building lots offered hy the Government. To this end it is tho duty of
every member of the company to do all
in his power to raise the necessary
amount of money to erect a suita. lo
drill hall
Several members of the Rifles intend
going East'this winter in order to take
the short course in the Military
School at Winnipeg. The course of
three months entitles a man upon passing his examinations to a '"Grade B"
certificate, qualifying him for the
rank of Lieutenant.

PRESERVE THE FORESTS.
The Kaslo Hoard of Trade bus put
tho entire Province under obligation
to it. We have lo wait to see what influence its memorial will have, hut
the fact that one has been drafted and
sent to the Government is much to its
credit, and it can now await the
issue with the consciousness of knowing that what it could do it has done.
That is more than all Boards of
Trade oan say. We refer to a tnemur
ial addressed to thn Minister of Lands
and Works, strongly urging that the
Government should make the fullest
po.-isibli! provision against forest fires.
No more valuable publio service could
be performed by a Board of Trade. It
may be that Ministers will ignore it
and do nothing, but that will be the
fault, not of those Kaslo gentlemen
who have moved in the matter, but of
the Government who will prove by
thsir inaction that they are indifferent to the public interest or have uot
the intelligence to appreciate it.
The time has come in Canada when the
pioteetion and preservation of its forests has becamo a matter of vital importance. That was recognised several years ago by the older Provinces, in whioh legislation to that end
hrrs been passed. It has been ro<-og-
nisod by the Dominion, whose Government bus established a bureau of forestry and appointed a diligent and
capable official to take charge of lt.
The Dominion is a large owner of
timber lands, and realises the increasing value of them ; it realises also the
necessity of protecting as well as it
can tbe timber wealth of tbe country
agninst tbe ruinous waste to whioh
it has been exposed. Nowhere is that
necessity greater ihan in British Columbia. Today wo may not bs able
to appreciate the worth of our forests,
but in tho lifetime of our children uot
a stick of timber in valley or on nioun-
tuin throughout the vast region of our
Piovinoe but will have its value. The
vise man looks forward to this, and
Is anxious that measures should be taken to leup the full   advantage of it.
Thut is what the Kaslo Board of
Trade desires to see done. Its members have personal knowledge of the
waste that is going on through neglect to provide against forest fires.
Every year they witness tbe destruction of wealth, that is all the mere
lamentable becauso in many instances
it might have beeu avoided. That destruction is cansdd through carelessness, some of it so culpable as to deserve exemplary punishment, Thoy
have known fires to be started by
men who desired to clear off a slope
for prospecting. Carelessness iu guarding against their spreading has resulted in great loss. Others have originated in camp fires of men employed
by tbe Government on public works.
In a dozen othei1 ways, all attended
with tne usual carelessness, fires
have been staited that have caused loss
that it is impossible to estimate.
Tuere is a law th��t is supposed to
guard against these, but it is inefficient It is inadequate in its provisions,
and no intelligent effort is made to enforce it. Only a short time ago a fire
destroyed much valuable timber growth
ouly a mile or two out of Nelson, and we have never beard of
the first step or any step being
token to discover the origin of
it, which was easy to do, and to punish thH offenders. The memorial of the
Kaslo Board of Trade is a request that
a little moie purpose and earnestness
im put into the law and ita operation.
The Government can impiove ou existing eruditions, and they are asKed to
do it. Tbat improvement is not only
desirable bnt necessary, if we are to
preserve the forests of the Province
from further destruction. In bringing
the matter to tlio attention of the Government the Kaslo Board cf Trade has
ilrniir a good work, and that it may
bear fruit will be the earnest wish of
every citizen of British Columbiu who
accustoms himself to see beyond the
end of his nose and who feels a concern for tho welfara of the future.
The Kaslo Board of Trade is busy
these days. In addition to the memorial respecting forest flies, to which reference is made elsewhere on ibis page,
it is engaged in piekng a bone with
the Minister of Marine at Ottawa.
Aud, as in the other case, it has right
and reason on its side. Last July the
Kaslo boats were ordored to report at
Nelson for inspection. The gentlemen
of the Board of Trade believe that it
is mnoh easier for   tbe inspector to  go
to tbe boats thau for the bouts to go to
the inspector, an opinion which will
appeal to most persons as an eminently
sensible one. Therefore thov ask Sir
Louis Davies to order his inspector to
visit Kaslo, and thus save Imut owners
the $Z0, $530, or (40 expense whioh
would be Inourred in eaoh instance if
they havo to wait o:i His High Mightiness at Nelson. There should bo no
doubt as to the reception the Minister
will give tbis request.
The accuracy of Tbe Colonist's interview with Mr. Macpherson is disputed. Mr. Macpherson declares iu a letter thnt he did not say the things attributed lo him; the correspondent
who took notes of the interview makes
affidavit that the report is substantially
correct iu every particular. We are
disposed to believe the correspondent,
while ai the same timo maintaining
that it does not matter a piuch Of snuff
what Mr. Maohpersou said, or may
say, or thinks, or believes. He is a
very ordinary person, and by no
means the kiud of one around whom
would ventre a political crisis. He will
never make or oninake a Government.
Tho Victoria Globe bits him off happily when it says that be desires to
be understood as opposing the Government, but wants to keep the fact quiet
for a time. If it will afford the gentleman the least satisfaction, we hope
he will keep it so profoundly quiet
that no one will ever hear of it until
it goes oft' of itself.
When The Columbian, of New Westminster, abandoned its contention that
the new century would begin ou the
1st of January, 1900, tbe whole world
realised that the controversy was Bottled in favor of 1001. But that did not
end the perplexities by any means.
Another and most vexatious one has
arisen iu Germany. We huve been accustomed to abbreviations, such as '84,
'fill, '99; what shall be the abbreviation for 1900? The Courts huve already
declared that it cannot be '00, for cyphers mean nothing. But the Post-
office ia less strict, and is willing to
concede that '00 may do. Ttis may
not be wholly conscientious, for it is
admitted in connection with it that
otherwise it would bo necessary to alter all tho stamping upparatos used in
the poBtal service throughout the Empire. Bringing lhe matter home to
ourselves, a paper expresseses the belief
that Mr. Mulook "will deal with this
as with other matters in a manner calculated to give entire satisfaction.''
We do not know what Mr. Mulock
can do, or that he has any authority to
do anything. He does not make outlaws, or even establish our customs.
And ns there is no law to make 99
mean 1899, so there is no law to say
that '00 shall not he understood to
mean 1900.

NELSON BURGLAR
KENNEDY OOMWT-D FOR TRIAL
ON TWO CHARGES.
_____M_p
____:'
He Would Make a Compromise With the
Magistrate���Revolvers are Identi-
fied-fie Is Indifferent-
Considerable interest was around
when Kennedy was haled before Magistrate Crease this morning. A portion of the customary crowd that attends the hearing of criminal cases during the assizes was present to cheer tbe
heart of the prisoner with frequent
inirl audible expectorations.
Konnedy is not n prepossessing look-
111 a youth. Pale, sallow complexion,
heavy features and a cast in tlie eyes
together with bis manner in court give
one the impression that he is not a
subjeot to be dealt with as a first
offender, He seemed absolutely nn-
oonoerned about his position and is
said to havo stated that if the magistrate could undertake not to give him
a broader penalty than three years he
would plead guilty to -whatever he was
charged with. What Mr. Crease had
to say in answer to this magnamonious
proposition did not transpire. No
doubt his worship might soout an immoral contraot hut then unfortunately
tlie ease does not como under the summary JuirBdictiPU Act, so the prisoner
oould not plead guilty before Mr.
Cnase. Kennedy has time yet to
make a similar proposal to tho judge of
assize: or, should he elect for a spoedy
trial, then to the august and learned county conrt judge for Kootenav.
Yesterday Kennedy wus undefended
in fact lawyers were for the nonce
boycotted.
Mr. Bullock-Webster is an excellent
criminal lawyer and, with all due respect to the profession, can probably
get on better without the aid of any
of the legBl luminaries which Nelsou
oan produce. Constable Forrester was
the first witness. He described the arrest of the prisouer as related in yesterdays' Miner. He also identified the
nine revolversfwhich were displayed
in court) as beiug those whioh he took
from the prisoner. Eight of these
were iu a small Rick that Kennedy
was carrying at the time aud auothor
one was 111 bis pocket. The prisouer
stated to bim voluntarily that he
would admit he was guilty of being in
possession of stolen property.
Mr. Gtorgo Beor, one of tho owners
of, and manager for the Nelson Hardware Company, gavoevidetico relating
to tho breaking in of the company's
store and tho loss of 14 revolvers, and
identified the weapons iu court as beiug nine of those which wero missing.
Mr. Boei was followed by Mr. Mo-
Hardie. a clerk in the Nelson Hardware Company, who corroborted Mr.
Boar's evideuce.
The prisoner ou beiug cautioued said
he had nothing to say and was committed for trial.
The second charge, namely that he
(Kennedy) did on Ausgnst 81, he
theu beiug in tbe city jail, forcibly
and violently break out of it, was then
proceeded with.
Mr. Bullock-Webster prosecuted and
examined Chief of Police Jarvis who
proved the offence and the magistrate
committed the prisoner for this offence
also.
Kennedy asked if he could have a
speedy trial and Mr. Crease informed
him that he would have no difficulty
in obtaining oue -dioiild he so desire.
Tbe prisoner was then conducted into retirement.
Wanted���To rent, one oi two furnished rooms suitable for light housekeeping. No children. Close to Baker
street preferred Address House, Miner.

AN^  AMOUNT OP OOAL.
Col Prior; M. P., has heen looking
at tbe Orow's NeBt coal fields and
comes to this conclusion: "To my
mind it wonld bo impossible to place
too great a valne on these coal fieldB
The quantity of ooal in sight shows
that if the mines were worked for a
hundred years on a large scale, the
amount taken out would be as nothing
when compared with the supply. The
market for this fuel, which even now
is good, will be immensely increased
in the next year or two, owing to the
ereotion of smelters in the Kootenay
distict, and also to the faot tbat
American companies prefer it to other
cokes. Already some of the smelting
companies at Butre aud Helena have
tried it and report it to be the best
that tbey have over used. ���'

ONE MONTH ENOUGH.
A littio over one month of married
hfe wbb sufficient for Margaret Cham-
hers from whom her husband, William
H, was grunted a divorce by Judge
Blather, of Spokane, last week. Chambers alleged that he and bis wife were
married at Trail, B. C, in April
18118, and that in the follow ing June
hiB wife, without just caused or provocation, left him, and has since remained away, oil of which was without his wishes or consent. He doesn't
know where she is now, but the last
ho heard of hor she was  in California.
KOOTENAY   RIFLES.
Drill Hall is Much Needed and so Are
Funds For the Same.
The Nelson oorps of the Kooteuay
Rifles will attend at the shooting range
for target practice tomorrow at 1 p. m.
Civilians who desire to participate in
the shooting must he there promptly
at the aforesaid hour. Owing to the
wet weather the coips have had lo uee
the skating rink for drilling. Tho
hist drill that was held there impress
ed the members of the corps with the
fact that the need of a drill hall was
never groater than at present. When
the long winter evenings set in and tho
riuk is frozen over it will be impossible for the company to h<Id regular
drills which will soon tell upon the
efficiency of the oorps which was recently ieft in such thoroughly good
condition by Sergt. Carroll
It is hoped that Borne Maps will
speedily be taken to secure the grant of
buildiug lots offered by the Government. To this end it is the duty of
every member of tbe company to do all
in his power to raise the necessary
amount of money to erect a suitable
drill hall
Several members of the Rifles intend
goiug East this wiuter in order to take
the short course in the Military
School at Winnipeg. The oourse of
three months entitles a man upon passing his examinations to a '"Grade B"
certificate, qualifying him for the
rank of Lieutenant.

A speoial maoling of the City Counoil was called foi yesterday afternocn,
but only Mayor Neelands and Aid.
Beer responded to tbe call. Not being
able to scrape together a quorum the

The Ladies Hospital Aid will meet

Everyone Beems to expeot a Provincial election soon. Slocan politicians
are already discussing this contingency
and it is more than probable that Mr.
Wm. Hunter, the most prominent
merchant in the district, will be the
candidate in Opposition to the preseut
member, Mr. R. H. Green.
Mr R. Marpole, of the 0. P. R. is
at the Phair. He leaves today for the
Lardo country. When questioned by a
Miner reporter last night he had nothing to say regarding the company's intentions regarding tbe early construction of the Crow's  Nest  branoh from
Nelson to Balfour, However, it can
be taken for grunted that work on thi t
load will commence shmtly as the company nesiroB to escape tho trouble int t
with last winter ou account of the
freezing up of Nelsons water front.  _k
The Bawtnill men finished thoir con
ferenee at tlm Phair yestorday. It is
very probable that an amalgamation of
their interests may be effected. Iu
this event the English company will
buy up tho stock and all the the sawmill interests of tbe country will pass
into thoir hands.
A. Ferland will this week receive a
$5,000 bankrupt stock of merchandise
from Sandon, which he bought at a
low price and will sell below Montreal

STRANGE  WILL CASE.
The Free Press gives the following
account of the first proceedings in what
promises to be a cause eelebre has been
taken in the superior court iu connection with the will of the late Mine.
Maxwell Heddlet nee Dame Horteuse
le Due, the divorced wife of the late
Mr. Jehiu Prnmo, the Belgian violinist, who died last November in London, leaving an estate valued at from
$400,000 to f000,000 to the night Refuges of Paris, less somo minor legn-
oies to relatives. The action is takon
by Dr. Thomas J. J. Prume, son of
the violinist, to hold some property
and other valuables in this Province
valued at (80,000. The plaintiff declares he is legitimate, is tho sou and
heir to the late F. Jnhin Prume hy
his wife, nee Delvechee, and he adds
that after the latters' death his father
married the late Dame Horteuso Lo
Due, in Montreal, in March 28, 1881,
without a marriage contract; that
they subsequently went to Paris, and
that on May 28, 1888, Mrs. Prume obtained a divorce at Spa, Belgium. The
plaintiff alleges thut this divorce is illegal and null on the ground that the
court had no jurisdiction, the parties
being residents of Montreal and besides hiB father, tha late Jehin Prume,
had no opportunity to contest the application made for a; divorce. Dame
Hortense LeDuc died in London on November 28, 1898, nud his father having
died since, the plaintiff contends that
under the law of communiaute deblens
he is entitled to one half of the estate.

The Silvertmiian is the authority for
the statement that the muchly maligned Noonday, has been purchased
outright by Mr. Benedum and his
associates and that its showing is
richer than ever. "The present management which took a bond and lease
on this property about the first of the
present year for' the sum of $85,000,
the first payment on which fell due
yesterday, have not onlv met this pay-
ment but have also bought outright a
one-quarter interest in the mine, paving casli for it "
SILVERTON'S LITERARY SOCIETY
The Silverton Literary Society was
organized on Thursday night at a
well attended meeting held at the
home of Mrs. H. Calbick. The following officers were elRcted: President, R. (). Matheson; Vice-President, Mrs. B. Calbick ; Secretary, Miss
Duncan; Treasurer, Miss Hunter.
An executive committee was also appointed. Regular meetings will be
held every Wednesday evening during
the fall aud winter.
BAD FOR GENERALS,
GOOD FOR DREYFUS
(Continued From Firni Page.)
altered his oonviotions in favor of
Dreyfus. Lamothe relied: "At the
time I was before the Court of Cassation I oxpected proof of my comrade'B
guilt, and I wan thunderstrnok when
I fonnd the date of the bordereau, had
been changed."
Prisoner then rose to reply to De
Boisdeffre's argument. He declared he
never asked permission to go to the
manoeuvres, and recalled that when
Du Paty de Olam fixed the date of the
borderean in August, he (Dreyfus)
pointed out that hi could not have
written the phrase "I am goiug to
manoeuvres."
Roget here interposed and explained
that requests to go to the manoeuvres
were usually made veibally, so it
could not be proved whether Dreyfus
asked or not.
Tho general, however, admitted no
inquiry had ever been made on this
important point. Tbe court then ad-
jonrned for the day.
Roget was greatly excited during
the foregoing scene, but M. De Fond
Lamothe did not flinch. He retorted
quickly to all the general's observations. The two men glared at one another; once Roget was bo bullying, thnt
the audience hooted him.
