night, Many houses were blown down
mill unroofed, No lives wore lost hut
heavy damage was done to pnblio and
private property. The storm began
with heavy rain, when tbere was a
sligh' lull for a few hours, with the,
Wind S. |S. E., and the barometer
Steadily tailing. The wind suddenly
backed to East blowing with cyclone
mists. From b p. ni. nntil midnight it

Designer Fife of tho Shamroi I- has
been Intimately oonneoted in publio
minds with the fortunes of that craft
but uutil today his official r.-lation to

Thomas Lipton deems it wise now that
the fact should bo kuown that Mr. Fife
is bore not only in his interest, as designer, hut be will be supreme in
commanding the races. He will, indeed, sail Shamrock, His will and
rule will dominate the foreign craft
from this time forward, and so thoroughly lhat oven Shamrock's owner

a Few Weeks.

bs-ly ill. The physician sins that
Dreyfns may live only a few weeks,
and that he can live in any ease only a

of Dreyfus is such that milk and soda
water only, form his nourishment. His
stomach can hold nothing more. Figaro says that particulars regarding
Dreyfus health havo been communicated to Die Government. This matter

which tho Government will probably
intervene in the carrying out of tbe
sentence of tbo court-martial.

Court-marital The Tomps says: "Tbe
inveterate enemies of France, who are
exploiting (ho Dreyfus affair, as they
do all incidents of our nationaf life
would have made as much capital out
of the acquittal as out of condemnation. Their hatred will not change,
but they will not always have so
many listeners, for pimple people don't
hate Prance,but sincerely believe her
dishonored. They will soou return
in a more just appreciation of things
unit they will find that we are not devoured by lire from Heaven and tbat
we don't devour nny one ourselves.
Let ns work iu peace, and n sympathy
of foreigners will he restored with tho
rest.''
London, Sept. 18.���Tbe rumor was
current this afternoon tbat the Roths
childs had received word from Paris
that Dreyfus bnd been pardoned was
absolutely denied by thorn. Such action they said would tie absolutely impossible until the Council of Revision
passes on lhe appeal.
Chicago, Sept. 18.���Indignation over
tho outcome of the Dreyfus trial has
0 rused a party ot over 800 Chiongoans
who were going to the fair in a body
to abandon their trip. Louis Balle.
who is the treasurer of the party, and
who since the system was inaugurated
n year ago lias been receiving weekly
remittances from those who proposed
going,today issued notices to tlienieni-
b rs to call at his ollice in the United
States Express building and pet their
money. Immediately after the verdict
of the Dreyfns trial, Mr. Balle commenced receiving letters from member
of the party, saying thai undei no oir-
eirristauces would thoy visit Prance.
Boston, Mass., Sept. 13���The Post
today announced tbat it bns received
the following private dispatch from
Paris: Generals Roget, and Mercier
have offered on tlie part of the army
to demand from President Loubet the
pardon of Captain Dreyfus, if the Jewish Committee will drop tbe matter
and on conditiou that Dreyfus shall
live awny from the largo cities of
Prance for three years.
New York, Sept. 13.���The great
steamer Oceanic, of the White liter
Line, was sighted east of Fire Island
this morning at 8 o'coloek. She left
Queenstown at 4:45 p. m, last Thursday, and estimating that she will reach
| the lightship at 10 o'clock, the time of
her passage will be about six days nnd
two hours It is probable that owing
to hor great draught she will not attempt to cross the bar till high water,
which is at half past one this afternoon, at Sandy Hook, so ber appenr-
ance in the uppm bay oan hardly be
expected before 3 o'clock. The time
made by her may be considered very
good, as severe gales have been reported on the Atlantic, the passage was
rough and compares favorably with tbe
swiftest ocean greyhounds in such
weather. As compared with ocean
records, however there are half a dozen
steamers ahead of her. The beat timo
is that of tho Lucania, five days, seven
hours and 23 minutes and the Teutonio
live days 10 hours and 31 minutes; the
next following being Umbria, Majestio
and Etruia. Tlie Oonnic. is tbe largest vessel ever built. Her dimensions
are 704 feet loop, 72 foot beam, and OS
foot depth, with draught, light 32
feet, loaded 32Jj, feot. She registers
17,000 tons. Her engines are designed to develop .5,000 horse power. Hor
coal capacity about (1,000 tons. She
consumes about 500 tons daily. She
has two funnels each 20 feet in diameter and eighty feet above tbo fire
grates. Her passenger accommodation
is 025 onbin and 1,000 steerage. She
carried a crew of 450. It is cabled
when she sailed from Queenstown ou
her present trip that sho hnd ou board
2,044 souls. So much larger is she than
the other White Star steamers that tha
line hns built a new dock on the North
riier to accommodate her. Her ocean
displacement is 30,000 tons nnd compared with the Great Eastern, the
greatest ship ever built beforo her,
she is 24 feot longer, with horse power
immensely greater.
No day's run exceeded 500 miles but
tbe steamer is said to hnve made no attempt at records or even speed. The
voyage was pleasant and uneventful.
The engines were run through with
our a hitch, neither stopping or slowing on the way, and ber builder iho
Rt. Hon. W. J. Piere, who was ou
board, said tbat tbe steamer had come
up to his expectations in every particular. The Oceanic is a grand work of
marine architecture. There is practically no vibration, which is due to her
quadruple balanced engines. She is
the most powerfully built,and is, without question, tbe finest passenger ship
afloat. She is a remarkably steady
vessel.
The steamer on arrival nt Queenstown at the sound of a bugle call,
draped tho ship in tinge.
ARBITRATION   DECISION.
Washington, Sopt. 13. ���Information
reaching officials hero is that tho British-Venezuela conrt arbitration, now
sitling at Paris, will conclude work
and render a final decision nbout the
first of tho coming month. This is
due to tlie desire of Chief Justice Fuller, one of tbe arbitrators to return to
Washington in time for tho opening of
Supremo Court, October 1. Mr. K.
Harseu has announced to his oolleagnes
that he will make only a brief speech
and this has permitted an understand-
ng to olose the work nbout the first of
the month and to render a verdict on
tbis important international question
before the arbitrators separate.

The Head of the Commission
Makes a Statement-
A QUESTION OF HONOR,
Annexation of the Philippines a Heavy
Responsibility���No rJxcuse for Failure to Discha ge It.
Ithaca, N. Y., Sept. 13-President
Schurmun, of the Philippine Commission, returned today to his ollico in
Cornell University. Ho gave out tbe
following to the Associated Presi : In
the Philippine aff.tir it is very important that the public should know
the actual facts of the sitnalion.
Things are what thuy .tic, aud tbo
American public should understand
that whether they agree with or run
counter to tbe public wishes.
First���It requires some effort to realize tho vnstness of the archipelago,
which extends in triangular form
from Formosa to Boruen and Celebes
Sea, through 'G degrees of latitude,
No^er going out to tho Pacific on the
east nor llio China Sea on the west I
make a circuit of 2,000 miles all south
of Manila. This gives some idea of
tbe difficulties of maintaining an effective blockade as the coast of all the islands embraced iu the archipolago is
many moie thousands of miles.
Second���The multiplicity and hetro-
genous nature of the tribes in something astounding. Over sixty different
languages are spoken in the Archipelago, there areAit least half a dozen tribe"
each having over a quarter of a million
members. Tbo languages of those
people nro as distinct from one another
as Frenoh and Spanish or Italian, so
that tne speech of any one tribe is unintelligible to another. These tribes
are civilized, but small uncivilized
tribes are among them. In oue Island, also, tbere is a large Mohain-
inuned population which is indepeud-
out of tho Mohammedans in tbo neighboring Sulu Archipelago.
Third���It is tho Talalogs that inhabit somo of tlie Provinces abont Manila
wbo nre lesisting the authority of the
United States. Other civilized Filipinos are neutral except where they are
coerced by bauds of Talalogs who seized upon tbir goods during   hostilities.
Fourth���The insurrection though serious enoujib as experience has proved,
is not a national uprising. Indeed
there is no Philippine nation, us I
have already said, there is u multifarious number of tribes having only this
in common, that tbey belong to the
Malayan race, 'the inhabitants of the
archipelago uo mure constitute a nation than the inhabitants of the continent of Europe do.
Iu taking tho Philippine Islands wo
annexed great responsibility. The fact
is that the responsibility is heavier than
most people supposed, Tbere is no
excuse for failure Ur discharge it. I
repeat that the Philippine qnestion is
essentially a question of national honor and obligation. In reply to an enquiry whether anything was now left
but to fight it out. President Sehur-
mau said: "In my opinion much
good would be done by a declaration
on the part the OoUgresH of tbo form of
Government to be established iu the
Philippines Islands, or better still, lot
congress establish a Government for
tbe Philippine Islands, have it put in
force in all parts and umocg all tribes
hostile to tbe United States. This
would sorvo several purposes. It would
distinguish betweeu our friends and
our enemies and treat the former according to their deserts. It would also
give to our enemies an oraoular demonstration of free Government ou tho
American plan. A very important
point, it is remembered, that tho Talalogs claim to bo fighting for their
liberty and I bad better call attention
to the fact that tho Government which
is well adapted to one tribe may need
considerable inodicution to he available
for another."
Asked nbout tbe capacity of tho
Philippine pcoplo to govern themselves
President Scburman replied thnt they
hnd no experience in self-Gnvernmeiit
except in municipal affairs, and even
these were subject to the control of the
Spanish authorities, He thought, however, that ouch tribe might be subject
to the supervision from Manila varied
with the position whioh the different
tribes occupied in the scale (rf civilization.    President     Schurmun    seemed
ADMIRES DEWEY.
New York, Sept. 13.-Capt. Dulic-
ken, of the British steamer Clan Robertson, whioh arrived today from Glas-
gow, is an enthusiastic admirer of Admiral Dewey, lie says he will otter
the reception committee six of his officers and men to participate in the* parade in honor of the American Admiral. The Clan Robertson is manned by natives of India, and will present a novel appearance in their white
uniforms with eniefs of tbe different
castes in red sashes.

Conferring By Wire With Orange Flee
Stale.
Chicago. Sopt. 13.��� "War with England means extermination of tho Boers
in South Africa," said Rev. Dr. S.
R. Bcesman. nf Pretorin, in a lecture
delivered to 2,500 persons assembled
in the Chicago avenue chnroh to bear
a native of the Transvaal discuss the
history of his country, and depict the
present difficulties with Great Britain.
"The Boers, pud there are 300,000 of
then in tlio Transvaal, Orange Free
State and Cape Colony, would light to
the last ditch," the lecturer said, "but
there conld be co hope for them in a
conflict with the English and they
would be wiped out."
Pretoria, Sopt. 13.���A communication has boon received from the Imperial Government stating that although
noxious for n prompt reply tbe Iniper
ial authorities don't desire to tie tho
Transvaal down to 48 hours. The reply will possibly come before the
Volksraad tomorrow, Tho decision of
the executive will undoubtedly be influenced by tho notion of the Orange
Free State. The Governmeut is still
willing to attend the Joint Commission originally proposed.
Pretoria, Bept. 18.���President Kroger
and tbo executive council reassembled
this evening to consider tbe reply to bo
made to British Secretary of Stnte for
the Colonies, Mr. Chamberlain. They

outsiders.

SIR WILLIAMS DREAM.
From a London Depot Westward to the
Far East���System Will Almost
Girdle the World.
Montreal, Sept.l3.���Sir William Van
Home, chairman of the board of director of the Canadian Pacific Railway Company, has admitted what has
long been un open secret, tbat tbe Canadian Pacific is anxious to establish a
fust Atlantic steamship service between Canada and Liverpool and only ���
awaits tho promise of an adequate subsidy f.om tho Dominion Government
before putting its plans into execution,
air William also said.thut his compauv
would like to buy out the Inter-Colonial Railway from Canada and after establishing its fast steamship line would
run a special Cnnadinn Pacific train
in Eugland between London and Liverpool.
"I oould die in peace," wero Sir
William's words, "if I could see a Can-
adinn fast Atlantic lino iu connection
with the Canadian Pacific Railway nn
accomplished fact. My plan would be
to have the fast passenger ships run to
Quebec and Halifax, while great cargo
ships wonld carry freight to Montreal
and St. Johns.
"The Canadian Pacific train would
run out of Boston station in London
to Liverpool. No expense would be
spared to make it the finest train in
the world. The name of the Canadian
Pacific would appear on all tbe coaches.
Everything would be done to impress
the travolers with t he idea that they
Mere on a Canadian truiu. On every
ticket sold we would guarantee connections. Whether the traveler was bound
for points in Canada or the United
States or for Yokohama, Hong Kong
or Australia, we would guarantee that
there would hi' no delays.
"On tho Atlantic we would bave tho
fastest steamships afloat, ships of greater speed than those that run to New
York and superior to them in every
way. The result would be much the
same on the Atlantic ns it lias beeu on
tho Pacific, where since tlie Canadian
Pacific began its line from Vancouver
to Japan, we have taken practically
nil tbe passenger business from the
Amerioan lines to San Francisco.
"Before this can be accomplished an
arrangement must bo made by which
the Canadian Pacific trains can meet
the ships at Halifax aud the Canadian Pacific must have such control over
the railway botween St. Johns and
Halifax tbat wo can absolutely guarantee no delays will take place. If tho
Canadian Pacific owned tlio Inter-Col-
onial there would be uo delay whatever,
'lhe whole line from Loudon to Houg
Kong und Australia would be under
one management."
Continuing, Sir William said he believed tlie pcoplo of Canada would approve of tbe purchase of the Inter-Colonial by the Canadian Pacific.
"The Governmeut railway accounts," said Sir William,"are so prepared that tho people do not appreciate
the large amounts that are continually
bring spent on capital account. If the
Government would lease the line to the
Canadian Pacific for n long period of
time the Canadian Pacifio would bo
willing to guarantee that tho Intercolonial would cost tho people of Canada nothing iD the future; tbat tbo
maximum rales would never be higher than the present rates and that the
Government should have power to regulate them uud reduce tbem uuder certain conditions.
"If the Canadian Pacific had the Inter-Colonial it would undertake to establish a fast Atlantio serivce for a
subsidy of $750,000 that would he fnr
superior to anything yet seen. The loss
now sustained by the Government of
the equipment aud operating the Intercolonial is about as great as the subsidy required for tbe fast Atlantic service, and as this loss wonld1 be uvoid-
ed by a loss to the Canadian Pacific
the subsidy would not add to the bur-
dous of tha Oanadiau people.

DREYFUS AFDTHE EXPOSITION.
Some newspapers in England nre
strongly reoominending that Great
Britain, in view of the Dreyfus verdict, should boycott the Paris Exposition. Long dispatches from Washington tell of the feeling among tho politicians there, who aro so outraged by
the conviction of the unhappy officer
that they would be glad if Congress
wonld revoke the unexpended portion
of tho appropriation. Newspapers in
Canada say thai this country should
mark its displeasure by keepiug away
from Paris next year, aud the able but
somewhat bumptious Attorney-General
of Nova Scotia denonnoes the verdict
in a public letter and expresses the
hope that Great Britain, the United
States, aud Canada will refuse to patronise the Exposition.
The feeling that prompts the suggestion of a bocyott is admirable, and
every right minded person will share
it. But tho suggestion itself is absurd.
The Governments cannot do what is
asked of them. If the British Government wero to stop short in the preparations that are being made and were
to intimate to France that the British
nation, highly displeased because of
tho Rennes outrage, would refuse to recognise tbe Exposition, the French people would be deeply offended nnd would
regard Buch action as little short of a
declaration of war. The British Government has nothing to do with the
administration of justice in Prance,
whether civil or military. That is a
purely domestic affair, with which interference is quite out of the question.
Neither has the Government of the
United States or of Canada.
What the Governments cannot do,
however, the people may. Mr. Long-
ley can express his extreme dissatisfaction with the Rennes verdict by giving Paris the widest possible berth
next year. And so can Canadians
generally, or Americans. If they are
boiling over with indignation, as is
very probable and in the highest degree creditable to their humanity, let
them stay away. The Government;
havo made their appropriations and
engaged space, and cannot now retin
without giving offence ; but exhibitors
are not obliged to exhibit, nor are the
general public under any obligation tt
visit Paris. The Exposition is several
months off yet, however, and before
it is opeued tlie present i.iritation niaj
subside. Tbe Dreyfus affair has beeu
a conspiracy from the beginning, and
it looks as if the Renues trial wa
merely a prolongation of it. Thr
French Government aud tlie Court-
martial conspired to bring in a verdict
of guilty, in order that the nation
might escape the risk of a revolution.
This danger over, the next step in the
conspiracy will bo taken, and Dreyfus
will cither bo pardoned or his sentence
so moderated that it will lose tin' appear-
anee of punishment, The ugly feature
that will always remain is the fact that
the French peoplo wero incapable of
protesting against an unjust judgment ;
but this will be forgotten in tlu virtual rehabilitation of the persecuted
officer, and the irritation will pass
witli Ihe memory of it. Paris will
havo its millions next year, and it is
desirable that they shall have an op
portuuity to see tbe ores of   Kootenay.
maneing,   and  it may be accepted  as
tin' actual truth of tin' matter that  hi*
mission is a political one,
He has just got rid of Mr. Martin ; that
is, he has rnaneovred to get that individual out of tin' Government, but
whether be ha- got rid of him is uu-
ither question. It is the question that
just now is mi'sl troubling Mr. Cotton,
and In- is beating up and down the
country to ascertain men's minds and
gather the information on wlm h to
base an estimate of the probability of
Mr Martin's resurrection. This is a
matter of the ntincst Interest to Mr.
Cutlon, for if .Mr. Martin bobs up
again it will mean that Mr. Cotton
will have to take a header down below.
Never more call lire two men reign
side by side;their political kingdom is
not big enough for both. Much will
depend on Kootenay, and Mr. Cotton is
re to feel its pulse. If he shall
take the trouble to go outside the rath-
r restricted circle of Ministerialists,
he will discover an enormous indifference to tin' result of the conflict between himself and Mr. Martin. There
is n matter, however, personal to himself, iu which every citizen of Nelson
who reg uds good character and reputation as essential to public life takes
a dei'p interest. Mr. Cotton is accused of having I'alsilied the records of the
Executive Council. A graver charge
was never made against the honor of
a Canadian Minister. So far Mr. Cot-
toan has ignored it. He may think that
be is tlio lest judge as to the expediency of a policy of silence, aud perhaps hi' is; but there aro scores of honorable men hero in Nelson who feel
that silence under an nnjnst accusation
of that nature is impossible. We
should all like Mr. Cotton to denounce
it ns untrue, for it is not pleasant to
have to think that a British Columbia
Minister of tlie Crown is lying under
so serious a charge, We therefore extend to him an invitation to explain,
and thus relieve a great deal of very
painful anxiety. Until he does this
we can assure him that outside the
ring of professional politicians who favor his party or his Governmeut there
will he very few who will care tho
toss of a copper whether ho or Mr.
Martin shall win in the race of agitators aud deinogngues.
THE VISITING  MINISTER.
Mr. Cotton is visiting Nelson. We
may lie sure he is not here to sec that
the foundation walls of the registry
ollice are built in true, workmanlike
manner. Such little duties of inspection are left to subordinates. There is
nothinu else in the nature of a nublic
work that would call Mr. Cotton to
NoIbou, nor are there any laud transactions or complications that render his
presenoe necessary. In the performance of his Ministerial duties there is
no occasion for the trouble he is obliged
to take, or for the inconvenience to
whioh he is obliged to submit,in making the journey from Victoria to Nelson
The simple explanation is that be is
making a tour of Southern British Columbia with the object of feeling the
public pulse,anl because of its importance as a politioal centre Nelson is necessarily included in his itinerary.
He will pretend that be is hero on Departmental business; but it is well
known tbat  Ministers aro given to 10-
T'lio Associated Boards of Trade, tbe
most representative commercial gathering ever assembled iu Southern British Columbia, passed a resolution regretting that the Legislature had
thought it necessary to enact tho Eight-
flour law, whioh was productive of infinite harm to the mining industry of
the Province. Now we have the Canadian Mining Institute, which is specially interested in tlio industry and
has special knowledge of the conditions that go to its Buooess, passing a
similar resolution cf disapproval and
remonstrance. It would be hard to
find two bodies that could declare themselves with greater authority on a
question of that kind.
Leading Conservative newspapers like
The Toronto Mail and The Montreal
^tar profess to believe that a Dominion general election is among the possibilities of the year. The Slur points
to the activity iu Ministerial quarters
as evidence tbat an early dissolution is
contemplated, and insists that tl.e disclaimer of a Quebec Ministerial member is intended merely ns a blind. It
admits, however, thai with tbe sent 'if
Government in the person of Mr. Tarte
out of tbe country nothing definite
can be known.

ii, NELSON DAILY MINER, THURSDAY,  SEPTEMBER  14,  1899-
ON EIGHT-HOUR LiW
No Chance ot Present Act
Being Eepealed.
A  SHORT  INTERVIEW.
The Government Will Continue in Officii
and Pursue ihe Samo Policy They
Ilava Heretofore Acbpted.
Mr Darter Cotton, Finance and
Land and Works Minister, is staying
at the Hume,
Mr. Cotton was courtesy itself| to
Tbn Miner's reporter when he waited
on him last night at the Hume Hotel,
"But" paid he, "I bave really nothing
to say. Let me see, yen are on The
Miner's stuff. Thai, paper opposes the
Government. Well, that makes no
difference to me. T Jshould be moat
liuppy to tell you anything it' there
was anything of interest; to the gen
ernl pnblio to tell.''
Mr. Cotton was theu pressed to Rive
his opinion on the Bight-Hours act.
"People seem to imagine that the
Government can repeal the net" said
Mr. Cotton. "Of course yon must
know enough to know that that is tini
the ease. The act is now law and the
(lovernment'B duty is to see that the
net is properly carrier! out. The Legislature alone can repeal, alter or nuieml
the act and as tho next meeting ot the
House is not until January nothing
enn be done until then.
���'I nny say though" he ridded,"that
the Government, oven if they had the
power, would certainly not repeal the
aot. I, and my colleagues, havo not
lust faith in the measure. When the
nel waa passed we were firmly convinced that the Eight-Hour law wns
for the fienoial benefit c,!1 tbe Proviuce
and _s yet nothing has occurred to alter our conviction. I consider it highly
improbable that the act will ever he
repealed Precedents in Canada nud
other countries show tbat labor laws
when onoe made remain. The present
differences between men and masters
in this district, which by tbo way hnve
been greatly exaggerated in tbe press,
will somi right themselves. I would
gladly favor any conciliatory measures
towards thnt ond.''
Mr. Cotton mentioned inciflentially
that the Government would continue
Io pursue their policy ot retrenchment
and reform. Ho bad not yet beard of
a dissolution or of: the resignation of
Mr. Hume and imagined the reports
of the same emanated from the fertile
brain of somo newspaper reporter.
Tho Government were glad to get
rid of Mr. Martin. They believed lie
was doing harm to both bis party nud
the Province and nt the risk of weakening their owu cause he nnd his col-
lvmgnes insisted oil his retiring. Mr.
Martiu threatened to wreck the present Government, but little fear was
felt of his threats.
Mr. Cotton is au Englishman, hailing from Douoaster in the County of
Yorkshire. He is an old timer in lint-
ish Columbia and is the proprietor of
t'.io News-Advertiser, of Vancouver,
which paper he for some time also ed
ited. Ue leaves for Kaslo this afternoon. Mr. Cotton slated that his business iu Nelson was merely official and
in no wise political.
He said nothing of his intention of
informing tbo errantry as to tho truth
of Mr. Martin's charges against him
or why the Government was continuing to do business in the old stand,
notwithstanding the fact that they
wore in the minority in tbo House.
In fact,he stuck to the safe rule of giving no incriminating evidence.
REDUCTION IN KATES.
Insurance Men Are Impressed With tbe
Safeguards From Fire.
Ono beneficial result of tho ] largo
number of brick blocks beiug erected
in Nelson this summer will he a geueral reduction in the rates of insurance on buildings in tho business
section. The erection of a briok block
to replace a frame one makes a break
that assures a greater safety to tho
buildiugs on either side of it aud as
several of these breaks have recently
been made tbe owners of adjoining
buildings have been agitating for a
reduction in the insurance rates. Tlio
result has been that insurance men
galore have visitel Nelson of late; they
represented boards of underwriters
and insurance companies, and all their
risks in the City have beeu examined.
The locnl men hnve beeu kept busy
With the representatives of the companies. The fire system of the Oity has
been thoroughly inspected and every
"ther safeguard uoted. The insurance
people have deoided that Nelsou is iu
no immediate danger of being wiped
out by a goneral conflagration and will
so report to their companies. Those
in tho City now are obtaining plans
of the business blocks showing the new
buildings that are being erected aud
it may be expeoted  that  a consider
able reduction in the rales will shortly
be announced. These reductions will
save a lai'tni nuiouut of money to Baker street owners in the course of a
year. What brought nbout the movement towards a general reduction in
rates'.\as ihe nctiou uf two Eastern
companies, which are uol members of
the British Columbia Hoard of Underwriters, doing liuRiness in Nelson on
the basis of Eastern rates. This meant
that on some buildings these two companies could give much better rates
than the other companies offered and
many policies were withdrawn from
the R. C. oompanies and given to the
others. This set the ball rolling and
now the rest of the oompanies will
crime down. The insurance men were
aooountable for the ringing in
of an alarm yesterday afternoon from
the Hume Hotel and causing quite a
commotion. The cliisf and members
of the Fire Brigade had no idea that
the test was to be mnde but tbey ably
tlemoristinted that they were always
ready for any everything. As soon ns
thn alarm sounded, the horses dnslicd
into plnce, the doors flew open and
the rash to tho Hume commenced.
Within two minutes of the ringing of
the alarm the brigade was nn the
scene, ready to send streams of water
on the hotel. It was a very satisfactory test an I as it will no doubt decide
tbe mar ter nf a general reduction rate
payers will be reoommended for the
money tbey spent t his year in bringing the department up to its present
slate of proficiency. The insurance
men think that the addition of a combination obemioal and hose cart would
make the equipment of the City perfect.
THE MONEY   IS HEHE.
The Oity Receives   164,8.00 For Its Improvement Debentures.
Just forty days nfter it should have
arrived the mouey for tho City debentures turned up yesterday through the
Imperial Bunk nnd now stands to the
City's credit at the Bunk of Montreal.
The par value of the debentures is $._,'���
000, but iho premium amounts to $4,-
800 extra As the City has lost tho interest on lhe money since the date ou
which it should have been received negotiations have been opened with the
purchasers to 'reimburse tbo City for
this loss and tbey have agreed to do so.
The accrued interest will bo forwarded in n few days. Nearly all the money
lias already been spent on publio improvements. The public works committee has been doing the drawing
and the Finance Oommittee has boon
left to pay the fiddler witn the result
that there will be precious little left
when the outstanding accounts are
paid and the pnblio works committee
gels in some  more of its work.
THE MINING INSTITUTE.
Yesterday the members of the Canadian Mining Institute paid a visit to
the Silver King mine. The start was
originally arranged for 8 a. in., bnt
most of the members were rather late
in getting up so it was not until two
hours later thnt they began to "get a
move on," Mr, II. E. Croasdailo the
mnnager, and Mr. S, S. Fowler neconi-
panied the members. On arriving nt
the mine thoy wero met by Mr. M. S.
Davys, the superintendent, who conducted them over the mine. The visitors were extremely interested in all
they saw. An excellent lunch was
provided for them and they returned to
the Citv much pleased with this visit.
Tbis moruiug the party will leave
for Knslo returning again on Saturday
when nn entertainment will be arranged for them in the evening.
PUBLIC MEETING CALLED.
Those who realize Unit tho Spokane
Exposition affords a valuable opportunity for Nolson and the surrounding district to advertise themselves aie requested to meet iu tho Board of Trade
rooms at 4 o'clock this afternoon when
tbo committees that hnve been milking
arrangements for the ore oxhibit nnd
international da>_ will report. Nelson
hns heretofore let slip many opportunities to advertise itself to advantage.
This time several citizens have worked
hard to see that this opportunity is
not missed and it is earnestly hoped
thut the usnnl lethargy will 'oo shaken
off nud thnt a representfive meeting
will   he held.

MINES OF
KOOTENAY
A*****-**-**-**-**-******-**-*****-
News reached tins City yestrday that
the crosscut on tlie Morrison mine in
Deadwood oamp, at n depth of 3.0 feet
is o'G feet in ore and has not yet readied the hanging wall. After tlio ore
bidy was encountered !i(J days ago, the
engineer examined the property.
A eontraet was taken and it was
found that the oro could he r,eacbed i.s
feet from the main tnnnel. The air
being bad in tbe old working tliH drift
v,hh started from the base of the old
main tunnel. The ore as predicted
was fouud after driving IH feet at the
depth 1 if 320 feet, since then the work
of orosscntting at right angles to the
vein has been prosecuted, the crossont
is in lit! feet and is still in oro whiob
will average -fl'.' in gold per nm, and
three per cent copper. The crosscut
has not yet reached the rich ore chute-
down in the shaft owing to the fact
that the richer chutes in that working
lie on the hanging wall, it is claimed
that it is not necessary to strike ore
of any richer grade in order to make a
big mine out of the property as ore
running as this does is sucttiiently run
to pay dividends in the near future.
Taking smaller rates as now offered at
$6.60  for freight and treatment   there
chilled by icy waters of rivers which
they navigated. Then frequently they
would be partially wrecked and upset-
in water and again experiences would
be vailed and they wonld bave to swim
to shore. In winter their sufferings
wero terrible. During the first summer they had a gnorl dial of trouble with
Indians who wanted to colleot money
for allowing them to pass through
country, but if it had not been for Indians iu wiuter time, a good many
of men in tbat country would have
starved to death. Calberg said that
great many deaths had surely occurred
of which no tale would ever be told.
Members of his party saw other meu
who said that they left their companions up in the hills and when Indians
went to search tbey could not be found.
The men had probably got of the
trail and lost.

New York, Sept. 13.���Perhaps the
most important and interesting witness at today's session of the Mazet
Legisltaive investigation oommittee
was F. H. Piatt, sou of United States
Senator Thomas C. Piatt and junior
lriwinber of the two firms of Tracy
Boardnian and Piatt. Piatt was called as a witness for the purpose of
throwing additional light upon tin
organisations and (be plan and scope
of the Raniapo Water Co. As a matter of fact he was unable to givo very
much information in regard to the origin of this water company which hoped seoure a 42,00,0000 contract from tin
City of New York, (juodttoucd by
Mr. Hoffman who represents the Democratic Ministry in the Mazet Committee, Mr. Piatt decliuod to answer regarding tbo amount of stock which hn
held in the City Trust Co., nnd when
pressed for an explanation said: "It
is none of your business." Silau B.
Dutehe the pieBident of the Hampo
Water Co., wiih also on the stand but
he was unable to give details concerning that organization because of the
absence of the Seoretary. A number
of other witesses were called to the
stand but nothing of general importance wns elicited.
RETURNED KLONDIKERS.
Vanoonver, Sopt. 1 Si. ��� After traveling continuously for almost two years,
members of a party of men Klondike-
bound, arrivod in Vancouver this
morning by steamer Ctipilano. During this time they have been nearly
nil over northern part of British Columbia, and for some time suffered
very much like many other men who
traveled by Edmonton trail. The parly
loft Edmonton a year ago. They had
come from Wisconsin. Tin' members
of the purtyj were Jim Brean, J. N.
Bagger and E. C. Avery, all hearty
looking men. They arrived in Vancouver this morning a tired looking lot
Bagger, leader of the party left for Seattle, audjtbe principal feature of his
appearance is that he has^ not shaved
for two years nnd his hair and beard
unite behind. Thu men talked volu-
ably oi the troubles of their trip. Thero
were few days last summer when they
bad not waded for long ^distances in
water up around their waist. In tho
heat of tho day thoir heads would bo
burning,   while   their  legs  would  be
almost entirely to Halifax.
At Victoria last week the steamer
"Empress of China" arrived one night
with what is stated to be tlio largest
and most valuable cargo of raw silk
ever brought to Amen'cn, the value being placed at upwards of a million
dollars.
The Cape Cod cranberry crop is said
to be earlier than usaal this season.and
it is expected that the quality of the
berries will improve rapidly.
There were 1,543,000 bushels of
wboat in store at Fort William on
August 21, compared with 1,754,000
bushels one week previously. Receipts
for the week were 104,000 bushels and
shipments were 365,000 bushels.
Stocks of wheat at Fort William,
Port Arthur, Keewatin, Winnipeg,
nnd interior country points are estimated at approximately 3,100,000 bnsh-
elH compared with about 700,000 bushels a year ago.
TROOPSHIP DETAINED.
New York, Sept. 13 ���A despatch to
The World from Hong Koug, says: The
U.S. transport Tartar, which expected
to sail today, hus been detained by
the harbor authorities under the British Merchant Shipping Act, whereby
her capacity is limited to 750 passeu-
gers, though she bas liceusod capacity
of 1,340. Consul Wildiuan, representing the United States Government
took the matter at once before the local Government authorities and maintained that the Tartar is nn American
troopship, although dying tlie British
Hag. and not subject to the Mercantile
Shipping Act The authorities have
been considering the matter all day
and it is probable that 460 soldiers on
board the Tartar will be left behind
when she is permitted to sail for San
Franoisco. Several of the discharged
soldiers on board the 'tartar tiled complaints of her unsanitary condition,
which started the proceedings to do-

Washington, Sent. 1.��� It was stated
at the War Department this afternoon
that the Tartar matter had been referred to Ambassador Choate whioh makefl
an international question of it. The
opinion is that, notwithstanding the
Tartar flies the British Hag, the assumption of tlio authority over her is
unauthorized as she is chartered hy
the U. ti. Government.

Berlin, Sept. 1!). ���The German commissioner for the Paris exposition, accompanied by three assistants, has gone
tu Paris t" complete arrangements for
the German exhibitors. This is geu-
era'ly interpreted as indication that
Germany has no Intention as a nation
of refraining from participating therein. Many of the newspapers are pointing out thnt the exhibition is not connected with polities, and they counsel
moderation until tho action of the
other nations is determined. Germany's action, it is snid. will be governed largely by that of Great Britain,
thu United States and Austria. The
Neuste Nachiiehten says it is extremely
improbable that Germany will farther
interest herself iu the Dreyfus case by
allowing documents proving the innocence of Dreyfus aud Estuihazy's guilt
to be published. But, the paper adds,
there are reasons to believe that should
the French Government officially apply
or these papers the  documents would
be produced without tiny hesituitou.
