Transvaal Events Move in
That Direction.
BOTH SIDES PREPARING.
Imperial Government Publishes Full Teit
of Recent Despatches���-Sessions
of the Volksraad.
London, Sopt. 1.���Thl situation in
Smith Africa has become rather com-
plicated. The strong feeling ot the
Dutch element in Cape Colony evidently influences the Seoretary of State
for the Colonies, Mr. Chamberlain, to
dn everything possible to avoid a
rupture, and explains the further endeavor for a conference at Capetown,
to arrange for the constitution of an
arbitration court to a deal with question of suzerainty, which, rather than
franchise, now takes place iu the
controversy. Speoial dispatches from
Johannesburg express belief that tho
Volksraad will oppose President Kroner going to Capetown. General Jon-
tiers is credited with sayiug there will
be uo war, but Great Britain will not
get all she wants. The Uitlanders are
much irritated at the prospect of further delav.
Capetown, Sept. 1. ��� Reports received here from various outlying districts
of the Transvaal described them as being iu a state of excitement. Burghers,
it is said are watching developments
keenly, but the majority of tbem hope
for a peaoeful soluiit.u ol thn crisis.
Tlio (jeDoral exodus of liriti-h subjects
from larger towns continue.
MA0DONA1D WILL BE THERE.
Londou, Sept. 1.��� Uol. Float or Archibald Maodouald, the Orudurrnau hero,
has been urgently summoned to report
at tho War Ollice. He expects to go to
Cape Colony immediately.
SWEARING IN   VOLUNTEERS.

volunteers were sworn in yesterday.
AN UNFOUNDED REPORT.
Bloomfontein, Orange Freo State,
Sept. 1.���The assertion made yesterday in the newspapers that orders
had been given for the immediate supply of equipment nud cartridges to the
Orange Free State artillery, is deolared unfounded.
IN THE VOLKSRAAD.
Pretoria, Sept. 1.���Tho VolkBraad
has deferred lhe discussion of correspondence exchanged hetween the Imperial and Transvaal Government until Monday when a motion regarding
the presence of British troops ou the
iiiinvniil border will ho debated separately, Herr Fischer, the special envoy
of Hie Orange Freo State, has arrived
here from Bloemfontein, and is consulting with the Government ou the
situation. LnBt night's session of the

FULL TEXT PUBLISHED.
London, Sopt. 1.���This evening the
Secretary of State for the Colonies,
Mr. Joseph Chamberlain, issued the
text of dispatches of August li) and 21,
and of the reply of the Imperial Government on August 20. The publication is ncompanied by a note emphasizing tbe advisability of making the
corrected versions knowu, owing to
the fact that an incorrect version has
b<ron published in Pretoria Tho Transvaal dispatch of Angust 19 contains
the proposals regarding the franchise
which go upon tbe assumption that
Great Britain will agree that the pres-
out intervention doeB not constitute a
precedent and will allow tbe suzerainty question to drop tacitly. The
dispatch of August 21 makes the proposed concessions expressly conditional
npou Great Britain undertaking not to
interfere with futnre affairs of Transvaal, not to insist upon n further assertion of existence of suzerainty, and
to agree to arbitration. The reply of
the Imperial Government,dated August
28, declares that Great Britain considers that the proposals put forward
as alternative to those of July 21, assume the adoption in principle of a
franchise which will not be hampered
by conditions impairing its usefulness
and which will assure immediate representations with respect to intervention, tbn Imperial note suys that the
Government cannot deliver themselves
fiom their rights under the conventions nor deliver themselves from the
obligations of a civilized power to
proteot its subjects abroad from injustice. The note concludes by reminding the TranBvaal that other matters
ovist which tbe granting of n political
franchise will not settle and which
aie tbe proper subjects for arbitration.
These, the note declares, will be
necessary to settle concurrently with
the qut stious already under discussion
and they will form, with the question
of arbitration, proper subjects of tbe
proposed Capetown conference. Tho
Pretoria version of the Imperial reply
was that Mr. Chnmberlniu was unable
t<> consider the Transvaal proposals as
au altenative joint commission in in-
q iiry.
LOOKING   FOR TROUBLE.
Loudon Sept. 2. ���The Johannesburg
correspondent of the Standard says:
It is generally understood that there
is the strongest inclination in Ihe Volksraad to repudiate riritish   suzerainty.

THAT WAS HMffl
BE OWES HIS LIFE
TO BIS NOBLE
Escaped Prisoner Captured!Dreyfus Had Petormined lo
With Nine Revolvers-
BUT  NO AMMUNITION.
Kennedy,  Who Broke  Out of the  Oity
Cells,  Now   in a Much Worse
Piedicament Than Before.
It is gratifying to know that the
police have succeedi d in recapturing
Kennedy and that this timo he has
been caught almost red handed for he
bad in his xrossession, wheu taken, not
less than nine of the revolvers stolen
from the Nelson Hardware Co. Yesterday Chief of Police Jarvis wired
early in the morning to Constable For
roster at Robson warning bim to be
on the look out for tbe missing man.
Mr. Jarvis also went to the O. P. R.
depot, and spoke to Mr. Alex Dow,
the engineer of the 7 p. m train to
Robson, and asked him to keep a good
look out for a man, answering the
description of Kennedy, along the
track. Mr. Dow spied his man between Bonniiigton Falls and Slocan
Junction and wired to Mr. Jarvis at
Slocan Junction to that effect. Constable Forrester received word of lhe
man being seen before leaving Robson
bo got out of the train (the one that
arrives here at 10 -HO a. m. ) some four
miles before reaching Slocan Junction.
Here be met u section man who told
him tbat a man, answering the de
scription of Kennedy bad passed by
20 minutes ago. Captain Forrester
then hurried on after his man. Happening to look behind he paw a figure
creeping down on to the track from tho
bushes by the side As he waB some
distance off, he cortjeetnred it. would
be wisest to wait as no doubt tho fugitive was heading for Robson ; so the
constable in his turn took to the bush
and the unsuspecting Kennedy soon
came up to him. Forrester jumped
npun the man like lightning and. covering him with a revolver, held him
up" in the orthodox manner. Ken
uedy only partly complied as he '' held
np his '.eft hand only while with his
right he fumbled in his coat pocket.
Forrester then became more peremp-
tor and begau to play with the trigger
of his weapoir in a business like way
so Kennedy thought it wiser to comply. "I guess you have got the drop
on me this time, partner," he said.
Forrester quickly put the handcuffs
on the prisoner then hailed some section men, who took the constable and
his captive orr a hand car to the Juno-
tin. There they were met by Chief
Jarvis who searched the prisoner and
found a revolver (unloaded) in his coat
pocket���tho pocket in which the hesitating right hand had been thrust���
and, in a sack which the prisoner carried, were eight more similar weapons.
Strange to say he had no ammunition
on bim so possibly he had been debating in his mind whether to run a tluff
on Forrester. It was just as well ior
him that bo played no tricks for the
constable meant business.
Jarvis, taking into consideration the
fact that Kennedy had showed some
aptitude in escaping from oustody put
lag irons ou the prisoner. Even then
he was not safe for he suddenly picked np two big rocks which were on
the window sill of tbo agent's room at
the depot bo his hands were nlso manacled. Kennedy had very little to say
for himself. He is known sometimes
by the name of English Dick and has
written his superscription as such on
tho wall of his cell at the Oity Jail
It ia possible that the namo he gave
when arrested, viz., Frank Kennedy, is
an assumed oue. He spoke feelingly
of other jails iu the Coast towns and
unwittingly displayed an intimate
knowledge of them. He came to Nel
son last Friday aud has had apparently
no funds during his stay in the town,
so it is extremely unlikely that be has
been connected with any of the other
burglaries.
He says that he escaped from the
jail about 8 p. m. on Thursday evening, went ut once to the plaoe where
he had oached the stolen revolvers,aud
having packed them in his sack, start
ed down the track stOfping on the
road for a sleep. He continued his
journey early ou Friday morning.
Jarvis does not think that Kennedy
oould have got away bo early as H p. m,
He did not discover tbe. escape until
11 p. m.
Kennedy seemed absolutely indifferent to the consequences of the
crime; the only thing that exercised
his mind was a craving for satisfying
the inner man.
The revolvers found orr the prisoner
have all been identified by Mr. George
Beer.
The police have shown great energy
and foresight in the matter and deserve all praise. Chief Jarvis is greatly
satisfied with the result, and whereas,
ou Thursday night ho confesses that he
expressed himself somewhat forcibly
on the situation his conversation last
night partook of the nature of " Y^a,
yea, and nay, nay."
The   piisouer   has   been   lodged   in
Commit Suicide.
HER LOVE SAVED HIM.

Touching Scene in ''curt When the Pri
oner Eclated -h^se Facts tu Hii
Judces- -PiOKrBiS of Trial
Rennes, Sept. 1.��� Dreyfus couit
martial met br hind ol sed doors this
morning and d s eis-od the seiret documents relating tn art lloiy snbjeots of
the bordereau. 11 e secret Res?i��n lasted until U:in tbo pub.ie being admitted tn the court at 9:30.
The first witness called after the public session began was Captain Lebrun-
Reuaud of the Republican Guards,
who reiterated his testimony given before the conrt of cassation, respecting
the terms of the alleged confession of
Dreyfus: "lam innocent. In three
years they will recognize my innocence.
The minister knows that if I delivered documents to Germany it w^s to get
more important ones in return."
The witness i xplained he i id not refer to the confession of Dreyfus in his
interview with President CasimirPer-
rier beci.use he overheard a conversation, during the course of which be
was called "traitor," "canaille" and
"cur." This is a surprise, tor he did
not mention this is his evidence before
the court of cassation, as Labori pointed out. Labori also laid stress on the
faot that the captain should have kept
his note book, in which he asserts lie
made a note of Lis couvertation with
Dreyfus, for four years and had destroyed it ou tbe very morning the
matter was brought up in debate iu the
obamber of deputies. The captain's
reply that lie looked upon tire copy
made by Cavaignao, theu minister of
war, as being sufficient, was considered rather lame.
Dreyfus, replying to the witness, begau by calmly declaring that Lebrun-
Reuaud's statement that certain Oaptain d'Attel was present during hiB
conversation with Lebrun Renaud was
inaoourate. Drevfus then raised bis
voice excitedly and quivering with
emotion, protested that Lebrnu-Ren-
aud should have repeated to his chiefs
hrs utterances which began with a
protestation of innocence, without
asking him to explain bis  words.
"Those are manoeuvres," cried the
prisoner, "whioh must fill all IroneBt
hearts with indignation."
This declaration made a deop impression on the audience. Dreyfns
spoke the last words through his
teeth aud wus evidently laboring under
great excitement and indignation. The
audienoe broke into a "bravo" whioh
the gendarmes immediately suppressed.
Labori then bad General Gonze called to the bar and asked bim if he had
not used the alleged confession of Dreyfus in opposing Picquart'a arguments
in favor of revision. Gonze replied that
he hnd not, whereupon Labori asked
that letters exchanged between Gonze
and Picqunrt Bhould bo read. All letters on the Bubject not being available
the reading of them was postponed
until tomorrow.
Major Forzinetti, who was governor
of the Oherche Midi prisoir during the
lime Dreyfns wn? imprisoned there
and who testified in the behalf of
Dreyfus, declaring he had never heard
of the confessions Dreyfus is said to
have made, was the next witness.
At the conclusion Ol his evidence
Drefyns, on JouaBts' invitation, and
after reference to the last interview
with Do Olam, said,looking with grat-
it 1e at the major :
"There is u mutter which Major
Forzinetti has juBt recalled, which has
greatly moved me and which 1 wish
to recall, for I wish to suv to whom I
owe the fact that I bave done my duty
and tn whom I own having done it for
five years after my condemnation. I
had determined to kill myself. I hud
made up mv mind not to uudergn the
frightful torture of a soldier from
whom thev wished to tear the insignia
of honor. Well then, let me say thiB,
that I went to tout torture I can
Bay here that it was thanks to Madame
Dreyfus, who showed me my duty, and
told me that if I wm innocent I ought
to do it for the Bake of her und our
children. If I am here it for her I owe
it, my colonel."
Here Korssinetli said : "It is quite
true. In his last interview with me
Dreyfus said: 'For her and for my
children I will undergo tortore.'"
The suasion conclnded with the confrontation of Captain Lebrnn-Renaud
and Gen. de Boisdeffre. tbe former explaining that he did not speak to For
ziuetti of Dreyfus' confession, because
be had received instructions to keep
silent. De Boisdeffre denied tbat Forzinetti bad expressed to bim hia conviction   that   Dreyfns   waa  innocent.
The major   maintained   bis aswtion,
however.   Court ttien adjourned,
DREYFUSARDS DESPONDENT.
Rennes, Sept. 1.���M. Godfrey Onv
aignac, formerly Minister of War, re
turned to Rennes tbis evening. There|
is much speculation respecting tin
motive for his re-appearance here.
The general conji ct are is tbat it implies a fresh shuffling of thn cards of
the prosecution. Bymptoins of despondency have manifested themselves
iu Dreyfusard circles during tbe last
few days.

AN   INTERESTING STORY.
Atlanta, Ga., Sept. 1.���The Jewish
Sentiment, in its regular weekly edition tomorrow will print a story bearing with almost stirtling directness
upon the Dreyfus trial, Several state
nients apparently new to tbe now celebrated case are given, together with
names of those who are said to be in
possssion of information which will
throw  new light on the trial.
For the first time, it is believed, tbe
mode of carrying documents from the
French war office to the German Gov
eminent is given. It shows that dolls
were used as the means of conveyance
aud that the papers went first to England and theu to Germany. The identity of the "veiled lady" is also made
known. The story which the Sentiment will publish comes from a man
who was employed several years ago by
Germany as document trunslater uud
maker of relief maps and who, after
quitting Germany, served in the
U.iited States army during tho war
with Spain. He shows his discharge
papers, which denotes that ho was a
staff officer. The informer says he was
born in Denver, Col 'lhe story nfter
introductory remarks, reads:
I was a translator," he said, of doc.
umcuts at tho great staff headquarters
at Konigratzerstrasse, No. 9, Berlin.
I never heard the name of Dieyfus
mentioned in connection with French
war office merchandise shipped to the

in payment for the merchandise. Theie
payments were mado in two part-
throuh Mr. Franz, a doll manufacturer of Scnnenberg, Germany, and Al-
vin Florschuets, bank director of Smi-
nenberg. The medium of women wis
employed iu transacting   the business.
"I met Count Esterhazy several
times iu person at dinners given b>
Baroness Delden, who was Estorbazy's
sweetheart. He furnished much ol
the information. These documensts
were never received at the embassy���
always at a church, a public function
or u private dinner party. The
French spies were always on the alert.
and only through such means could
their watchfulness bo circumvented.
The barouess is the party referred
to in the Dreyfus trial us the veiled

a regular pension. Every six months
remittances are made nrmonymously
to Baroness Delden through the Credit
Lyonnais, of Pnris. It is well known
at German headquarters staff that the
amounts are forwarded by Prince
Henry Pless. The Credit Lyonnais is
innocent of rhe purpose for which the
money is used. I mention this fact
because the records of the bank will
corroborate my statement. I am alsoiu
a position to name the poetofnees in
England where the money was paid
to the agents of Germany employed in
Paris.
Mr. Franz used to send dells to Paris
to be dressed. Iu the body of these
dolls important documents were concealed,and they,were then sent dressed
to a village postoffice in England and
forwarded from thero to Bonnenberg,
and then to Berlin. "

about BOO miners, fortunate and unfor-
lunate. The Laurada came from St.
Michael and the Humboldt from Skag-
way. The tolal amount of gold dust
they brought down is estimated at
half a million. The reports from the
Cape Nome district are still conflicting, but the fact remains that considerable goald dust was brought frorrr

Charles Anderson with $40,000. One
stalwart miner struggled toward the
assay office this morning with a sack
of dust 15 inches long, and was asked
where h come form : "Eagle City, sir;
aud that's ou tho American Bide, and
I am an American miner and don't

He seemed to take as much pride ot
the latter part of his statement as ho

next,   and as evidence in   support   tho

may. until after tbe determination of
the election petition peniiiux against
him, sit and vote iu the Legislative
Assembly for the Province of British
Columbia, without incurring the penalties provided by Seotion,88 of the
Constitution Act." As the case is
still pending, and likely to be, Air.
Prentice would seem to bo quite safe
should he care to appear in defence of
a Government that is alreadj a corpse
awaiting burial.
NOT ALL IVEBIT
It is claimed that the Liberals   have
not redeemed their financial promises���
their promises of economy.    For example, they had been contending for years
that the  people   had   been  too   highly
taxed ; .instead   of   reducing   taxation
they have increased it by six millons or
so.    They promised   to  reduce the un-
nual ex euditure, which they said was
much  greater than the  circumstances
of the country required or would   justify;   they have   ruu it  up from about
forty-two  millions   to  somewhere   iu
tho   neighborhood    of  fifty   millions.
Tbey said the public debt was increasing at an alarming rate, aud ought  to
be  diminished ;   they have added   six
millions aud a half to it   during   their
three years of office.    They   advocated
the  abolition   of    railway   subsidies,
which they declared to be extravagant
and corrupting; last session alone they
voted  $1,000,000    for   the Drummond
County railway, made the country liable for |I40,000 annually to te paid  to
the   Grand   Trunk,   and  appropriated
over six millions in aid of railway undertakings all  over the oountry,
Tbis is what  may be called the financial    indictment.    There  are  other
indictments,    bnt   they  need   not  be
considered   now.     All    Conservatives
join in declaring   that  the indictment
is  a true   one;   the great mass of  the
independent   element support the Conservatives, aud   a   respectable   minority of Liberals feel obliged   to  confess
that the  Government   have   not   kept
faith with the country.    Only   the organs and   the partv-at-any-price   Liberals deny the chage   and   make   any
effort to defend themselves   against it.
Tbe weight of  evidence is distinctly
against the men who have the   control
at Ottawa.   Instead of practising economy, as they promised tbey would do,
they have added to the public bur lens.
But there! is   something   tu be twiri   in
their favor.    It is not all debit.    They
may have increased the   general taxa
tiou by Bix millions,    the  public  debt
by as mucii more, the annual expenditure by eight   or ten,   and   instead  of
refusing railway subsidies have continued and enormously   increased   them;
but tbey havo made a saving by transforming a quantity of three-cent  postage stumps   iuto   twos. Last  January
the   uew   two-cent   rate    came   into
effect.    At that time there   wore   several thousand   sheets   nf threes still on
hand, costing   probably   as   mnch   as
one hundred dollars for work and   material.    These  men   who   have    been
wastiug by tbo   millions   at the bung-
hole have saved at   the  spigot by having these sheets run through a printing
press  and   marked   in   black   letters,
"two cents," thus making  it possible
to utilize   the sheets   of    threes   thnt
would   otherwise have   been   wasted.
That is   economy for    you.    By   this
brilliant stroke the country muBt have
been saved a hundred  dollars at leust,
perhaps more.      It gives a   cheap   appearance to our postago stamps,   and is
apt to provoke  unpleasant suggestions
in tho mmds  of foreigners; but   it  is
an example of economy,   and  because
of its rarity is to be prized     Wo conld
wish il had been a little more respectable in character,   for iu   affixing  ono
of these stamps to n letter intended for
foreign parts it is too much liko going
into company with u patch on the reur
side of  one's   troupers;   but   as it 1111-
pears to be the best the men at Ottawa
can do we  must accept   and   applaud.
And, besides, just think of  the   bankruptcy that might be staring us iu the
face if Mr. Mulock had sent those   superceded sheets to tho   furnuco  or rug
heap.
I lt is worth mentioning tbat London
exchanges of Saturday, August 19, including The Colonial Goldfields Gazette und Tho Citizen, arrived at the
Nelson post-office on Thursday, Aug
ust 81, twelve days out. Thut is good
time, lhe country is wailing for that
fast Atlantic service that Parliament
has been talking about these half dozen years, but when it comes it is
doubtful if it cun improve on this.

Puris, Sept. 1.���The Matin today
yubishes details of the investigation
iuto the conduct ot Oapt. Voulet and
Captain Clianoiue. charged with barbarous cruelties to the natives of
French Soudan, which led to the sending of au expedition, under Lieut. -Col.
Klobb after them. According to the
paper the two officers mentioned, who
were in command cf a column of
troops, began thei. work of barbarity
by beheading a native who had declared ho di'l not know about what he was
being questioned. A letter said Voule
captured 80 natives, of whom he killed
'M, of women and children, shot a soldier for wasting ammunition and burned a village of   10,00(1 inhabitants.
Chanoine, it is asserted, shot two of
his men without trial for not pursuing a native who had wounded a soldier. He also burned a village and having lost six men in au engagement,
rushed a village nnd captured 20 of tlie
inhabitants of whioh number be killed
ten, placing their beads on picks. It
is further reporled that Chanoine allowed his men to mutilate tbe bodies
of natives who were killed by cutting
off their hands. All these acts, according to the Matin, occurred in January last.

PROVISIONAL GOVERNMENT.
More Uuprououncable Names to Worry
the. Proof   Reader.
San Domingo, Sept. J.���The revolutionists have formed the following
Provisional Government: President,
Horatio Varquez; Minister of Interior, Joso liracbir ; Minister of War,
Ramon Cacerus; Minister of Foreign
Affairs, Domingo Ferreras ; Minister of
Finances, Samuel Moya; Minister of
Justice, Jose Mo Noel ; Minister of Agriculture, Arturo Aano; Minister of
Posts and Telegraphs, Jose Frogaz-
mau.
Tho seat of the Provisional Government up to the present has been at
Moca. There was somo disorder here.
The residences of Amaimia Diamnn-
ron, former j^inister Neuriqnez, and
that of former Governor Picliardo wero
sttned. Nobody, however, was injured. Nenriqnez has resigned and it
is supposed that the other ministers
will (io the same. A committee com-
dosed of Patiuo Mania Costro and Al-
vnro Logrone has been appoiutcd to
maintain order. The French warship
Oecille has left tbis port. The Dominican warship Kestauracion is still on
rocks at Macoris and will probably
prove a total loss.

And still more blocks for Baker
Btfeet When the six already under
construction are completed Baker street
will be the nes equipped business
snoot iu the Kooteunys, but when the
four otheri that arc certain and a fifth
that bus been practically decided on,
are up, Nelscn's main thoroughfare
will compare favorably with any in
EaBtem towns much larger than the
Queen City of the Kootenays.
Yesterday Dr. Hall bought thn vacant lot next to the Vienna Rnkuiy
for |8,000 cash, from Mr. W. H. Dow-
Hina, and will immediately commence
the erection of a brick and stone blook.
lt is understood lhat a tenuant has
already been found for tho ground
floor. Aid. Beer has one of the opposite lots between Hall street nud the
Queen's hotel aud will civet n handsome stone and briok block on it.
Mr. A E. Hodgins will also shortly
commence the erection of a block on
his property at Ihe corner of Kootenay
aud Baker streets There is a deal
now pending for the purchase from
Dr LaBnu of bis lot next to Aid.
Beer's on Baker street second from the
Queen's hotel. Whether or not the
deal goes through a block will be
erected for Dr. LaBnu intends to b.nld
if the would be' purchasers do uot see
his figures, and if tbe deal is consummated the new owners will build. So
there is no doubt but that four brick
blocks are to be added to those that
have already been announced. The
Nelson white marble will undoubtedly
be used in all the blocks which gua
rantees that tbey will be very band-
some. The block which The Miner nn-
noouced some time ago would be
erected at the comer of Baker and
Ward streets where Mills & Lott's
fruit store now is, will be proceeded
with next sprint;.
Work on tbe blocks now under rou-
striictinii is proceeding rapidly. The
Malone & Tregilus building will be
ready for oaoopnnoy shortly. The
Hoiixtou block is progressing rapidly,
and it is becoming more evident every
day that it will be ono of the handsomest buildings ill thn Province.
Tne loc 1 pressed brick and white mr-
ble arc being used with great artistic
taste. Tht foundation for the Burns
block is completed and work on the superstructure will commence next week.
Mr. Madden is o.dlmg for lenders
mid is all ready to go abend 88 soon as
the leases of the tenants in the present
buildings expire. Tlio Iniek wails oi
the Hudson's Buy Co. Iinilldiug are
almost completed. The iron pillars in
the front were placed in position yesterday. Tho new Bank of Montreal
still tiriijis along as all the material
has not yet hem reoived. The foundation for" the registry ollice on Voruon
strict is completed and tbo rest of
the workjwill be rushed forward lt
is impossible to keep truck of all the
residences that are scringing up in
every direction. In all parts of the
City nud in Bogustown the sound of
the hammer is very much in evidence.
Tukiug into account the tramway,
gas plant, sampler, civio works and all
tho buildings it has been esitmated
thai half a milliou dollars have been
spent iu permanent improvements in
Nelson this summer. This expenditure
hns kept things moving here, when
all other towns have Buffered from the
elositig down of tbo mines. There is
enough building yet to go on to make
it a lively fall, but the construction
ef the 0. P. R. from Nelson to Balfour will add to the prosperity of tbe
Oity. Within tbe next two weeks this
work will bo under way.
THK GAS  COMPANY,
Misleading And   Inacurate Statements
Ro Hall Mines.
The particulars of tho negotiations
between the Hall Mines, Limited; nnd
the (",as Company, as published inyos-
terday's Tribune,are incorrect and have
caused no little nunoyauco to the representatives of hoth parties. The
terms of tho pnrchuse are not sottlod
yet and the Una Oompany will not
commenoe to build until the conveyance is oxenuted. There is no friction "between the Oity und tho Hall
Mines" and "expropriation procceed-
ings on tho part of the Oity" are not
nm- have ever been contemplated.
There is still need for use of the
correctional ruler in the Tribune ollice,
though it is just possible that the unfortunate reporter wns partly misinformed.
The publication of such glaring inaccuracies when a deal is only pending
"hows u gross want of tuot and bad
taste us such n proceeding oan only
cause trouble and misunderstanding.

NO MORE STAGE TRIPS.

ANOTHER BIG   CONCERN.
An English Syndicate   Will   Buy  Up
All Kootenay Sawmills.
The sawmill interests of West
Kootenay and tbe Boundary country
are s'ill struggling with the qnestion
of amalgamation. Seviral meetings
have been held to bring this about and
satisfactory progress is being made.
Last night representatives of the companies met at the Phair hotel aud further progress was mado. The meeting
was adjourned until to o'clock this
morning when negotiations will he
continued.
Amalgamation will be effected
through the formation of a joint stock
company ; n valuation of the plant and
property of each company will he made
and stock lo that amount paid to tbe
company. It is the question of valuation that the meetings at tho Pbair are
settling. There were present last
night, Oharles Hillver, president of the
Nelson Saw and Planing Mill; G. O.
Buchanan,of the Kootenay Bake mill:
Louis Blue, of Rossland; Mr. Skim-
merhom.of Pilot Bay; James Poupoie,

for all other mills in the districts.
Since the efforts to effect amalgamation were inaugurated a new and interesting feature bas become iu evidence. A large syndicate, presumably
of English capitalists, will step in as
soon at the local men complete organization, and buy up all the stock, thereby obtaining control of tbe sawmill interests of the Interior. It is thought
that C. H. Mackintosh, of Hossland, is
at tbe bead of the syndicate that intends to secure tbis monopoly.

Tbe second annual ordinary general
meeting of the shareholders of the New
GoldfieUs of British Columbia, Limited, was held recently in Loudon, Sir
Charles Tapper, Bart., G. 0. M. G.,
C. R, M. P., presided.
The secretary (Mr. VV. A. Steams)
having read the notice convening tbe
meeting.
The chairman at once dealt with the
accounts. He said: The company's
positiou has beeu strengthened by the
issue during tbe year of 18.4UtJ additional shares. Part of these were issued
at the commencement of the year at
par, anil tIn- rliiectors have turn fortunate in plaoing further shures at a
considerable premium, the amount
thus obtained aggiegating ��2,��lo,
which has been placed to reserve account. In addition to this amount
��3,084 has been transferred from pro
fits, bringing the reserve account up
to ��5,000, which, considering the
smallness of our working oapital, is
a very substantial amount, and we
trust to add to this in future years.
The directors have no doubt that the
policy adopted of raising a reserve to
meet any unforeseen contingencies, or
possibly to equalize dtvdends, will
ooinniend itself to all shareholders.
The creditors are of trifling accoant,
and need no comment. The balance
of profit available.as shown by the bal
ance sheet, is __I(3,Ul7, after payment
of the interim dividend. Referring to
the credit side of the balance sheet we
find : Expenses on prop rties on hand,
��4,9t55. Your directors believe tbis to
be a valuable asset, and are confident
a good return will result from this outlay. Shares in various companies are
our most imprrtant assets.and stand in
the balance-sheet at ��43,52, the nominal value of shares being ��242,630
The shares have beeu taken into ac-
eonut at cost or under, and the present
market value of the same is very considerably in excess of the cost. Your
directors have felt it undesirable to
take credit for profit on shares until
actually realised, and the position of
the company is more satisfactory by
reason of tbe low valuation of this as-
Set. (Applause ) It might be mentioned tbe the whole of the original
outlay on the Velvet mine has been
written off. Advauoes on security
amount to ��20,142 and thiB may bo
taken as  perfectly   good,    Over  ��10,-
000 had been since the date of the
balance-sheet, paid off and the company hold ampin security for tho remainder. The cash at bank and in
haud, as shown in the balance-sheet,
amounted to ��20,195,and now stands at
something liko ��30,000, whioh, considering our total capital iB only ��89,143,
your directors think you will regard
as highly satisfactory. (Applause.)
Coming to tho profit and loss account,
under tbe head "expenditure in London" iB an item of ��303 for extra remuneration to directors, paid under
the articles of association, which provide for the payment to the directors
of 10 per oeut. of the profits divided
amongst the shareholders. Your directors feel suro that you will regard
this payment as au extremely moderate
sum in view of tbe great amount of
attention they bave devoted to the
affairs of this oompany and the responsibilities devolving upon thorn. (Applause. ) Costs of shares in subsidiary
companies, &o., calls for somo explanation. It will be remembered that an
option was hold by the founders of the
oompany upou the unissued capital of
the company,and Ihis was paid to can-
001 such option, which, iu view of the
piico to which the shares of the company have since risen, has proved a
most favorable arrangement in the
interests of the shareholders. The
whole of the preliminary expenses
amounting to ��1,0511, have been alBo
written off, which is another satisfactory poiut iii onr accounts., Looking
at the credit side we show a realised
).rollt of ��30,877, which, 1 might mention, is after making some allowance
for depreciation of part of the assets.
Interest and dividends have pioduced
��1,812, which is a very pleasing item,
and it is [a matter for congratulation
lo li nd some of our subsidiary companies milking us a good return in dividends.
The resulting net profit for   the year
Is ��17,880.   With regard to dividend,
the report has explained lhat your directors propose to pay a balance dividend for thu half-year at the rate of
20 per oont. per auunm, free of income
tax. which, with the additional remuneration due to the directors and al
lowauco for income tax, will absorb
��8,405, and leave a balance of ��82.112
to \io carried forward to next year. It
might be thought by somo that a larger dividend could be paid, but it
must be borne in mind tbat this is
only the second year of the company's
operations, and we prefer to walk before we ruu. (Applause.) Your directors have adopted a conservative policy.
Further, the cash retained will he of
great value, lied turned, we arc satisfied, to good account. It is most, necessary for a company of Ibis kind to have
ample resources. (Renewed up.
plause. ) When 1 last had the pleasure
of meeting you on .Inly 111, 1898, I
staled that a great future luy before
the company, and that Important interests wero held in various properties
thin in course of development which
promised large and profitable ret nm
to tbo sbiiniholdiiH. The ^promise of
success then held out has been realised
to tho fullest extent.

Tho lead furnace at tho Hall Mines
smelter was blown in yesterday on lead
ores, necessitating the employment   of
an additional force of men. These
men's wages are spent almost entirely
in Nelsou and it is largely owing to
the close connection that exists between Nelson and the above cnmpanv'e
mining and smelting industries that
Nelson is prosperous and thriving.
Much of the lead ore about to be
smelted comes trom the Ymir mine
in spite of the effort" of the Union to
stop the working of that property.
