WA, !S IP Oil      SECRET PAPERS IN
TO CIVILIZATION
HE PRAISES SALISBURY
Says the Premier Should Have the Absolute Oonfidence of the
Country.
Reading, England, Dec. 19.���Ac the
opening of tbe Wellington club hero
today the Earl of Selborae, Under
Secretary for the Colonies, discussing
the foreign policy of the Government
maintained that tbe Marquis of Salisbury's management of relatious between Great Britain and tlie United
tates, alone entitled him to tho nbso-
ute confidence of the country. The
change which has taken place from
three years back, when both countries
were discussing the possibilities of
war, would not have beeu possible except for tha cool and firm far-seeing way in which the Premier had
dealt with the Venezuelan diflleulty.
Continuing the Earl of Selborue said :
"A very Simple but very great thing
has happened; a- misunderstanding
has boon removed. Tho people of tho
United States bad not understood
Great Britain's real feeling towards
them. Now they understand. That
is all. But it is immense. Great
Britain has not proposed to use the
United States for her pnrposo any
more than our friends across'ine At
lautic havo proposed to use Great
Britain for their purpose.-. Where
our interests are identical wo may
shape for co-operation. When one
country bus an interest and the oilier
has none wo may hnpo that the country not interested will do what it can
to support its friends. Where the interests may unhappily tend to diverge
they should, baslen by mutual conciliation to an understanding so as to
arrive at a speedy compromise before
there is any cbauco of a breaoh of their
friendship. " (Loud Cheers.)

KIPLING'S   "RECESSIONAL.
Rudyard Kipling has again beon
trapped by tho wiles of tbe interviewer, tbis time somewhere in mid-Atlantic. Kipling's fellow-voyager had
heard of the last attemnt of tbo author's (private) life, when in reply !o
au innocent question concerning his
poems the writer of "Barrack-room
Biillads" curtly remarked he thought
Kipling a much overrated man, and
turned on bis heol and   walked ,away.
So tho wise interviewer conversed
with Kipling on every subject undo"
tbe sun but bis own works, until in a
weak moment tbe famous author began unconsciously to talk of birnseif
and his poems. The interviewer then
ventured a cautious appreciation of
the "Recessional."
"Ah," said Kipling, "rhat poem
gave me more trouble than anything
I ever wrote. 1 bad promised Iho
Times a poem on the Jubilee, and
when it became due I had written
nothing that satisfied me, Tbe Times
began to want that poem badly, and
sent letter after letter asking   for it.
"I made many more attempts, but
no further progress. Finally The
Times begau sending telegrams, So I
shut myself in my room, with a determination to stay there until I had
written a Jubilee poem. Sitting
down with nil my previous Attempts
before me, I searched through those
dozens of sketches, till at lust I found
just one line I liked. That was, 'Lest
wo forget.' Hound these words th"
'Recessional' wus written."

NO   NEW   TREATY.
Washington, Dec. 19.���The negotiations for a new commercial treaty between the Uuiti d States and Pern
have failed, for the timo being at least
and the existing treaty will terminate
next October. It is supposed hern
that Peru was induced to abrogate tlie
treaty by reason of tbo fact that it
oontained the favored nation clause,
the object Vicing to secure freedom to
enter into some special arrangements
with a third nation to which it was
not desired that the United States
Government should bo admitted. It is
surmised ton that tbe Peruvian Government may be resentful of Iho decision of tho arbitration in the second
claim.

Paris, Dec. 19.���There was a repiti-
tiou this afternoon of the now familiar scenes in the Chamber of Deputies. M. Lasies, Anti Senite, interpellated tbe Government on the
subject of the alleged indiscretions of
the Brisson Ministry in the Dreyfus
affair. He accused the former Premier M. Brisson, of violating the constitution and violently attacked tho
Court of Cassation whose President
M. Loews, he said was a brother of
a German official. The speech of M.
Lnsies was i nterrnpted by uproar and
protests.
The Minister of War.M. Defreycinet
replied that he did not desire to appear as wishing to influence the decision of the Court of Cassation but,
while willing to submit to the court
all the official documents iu his possession, he was absolutely determined
not to submit the secret batch of documents iu the case, which, he pointed
out, contained papers affecting the
security of the nation. He added that
if the house did not approve of his
attitude, he was willing to resign.
M. Lusiea said be thought that, under
the circumstances, the Revision of the
Dreyfus trial was only a comedy and
be thanked M. Defreycinet for furnishing official confirmation of the report
that tbe secret batoh of documents so
frequently referred to. really existod.
He then withdrew his   interpellation.
Tho Chamber late tbis evening
have discussed an interpellation by
M. Miller, relative to the conditions
upon which tho seoret dossier could be
communicated to tho Court of Cassation, as he contends unless the court
were put in possession of all the
documents, the whole case of revision
was vitiated. M. Dupuy the Premier,
replied that unless guarantees of absolute secrecy wero forthcoming tho Government would not communicate the
documents to the Courts. Tho Premier also declared it was impossible to
givo the documents to the defense unless the Government were absolutely
assured of   secrecy.    M.  Brisson said :
"There is no document iu the Droy-
fus dossier that could affect tho security of the state, I examined the entire
dossier after tho discovery of tho
Henry forgery and considered them all
suspicious. M. O. Cavaignac, former Minister for War interjected:
'"Yes, M. Brisson and M. Sarrien
examined the documents. I thought
it necessary to show them. Afterwards
I offered to show M. Brissou certain
documents iu the hands of Ganeral
Uonzo iu which (here wero tho elements
of Iho conviction, but M. Brisson,
I bought it useless to examine these."
After farther debate, which bad
been of the most animated character,
the Chamber, by a vote of .570 against
80 approved tho attitude of the Government.

An Account of How the Litigation Over
the Eleotric Light By-Law
Arose.
Victoria, Deo. 19.���The full oourt
today gave judgment allowing the appeal of the city of Nelsou in the matter of the Electric Light By-Law, and
dismissed with costs Mr. Justice Walk-
em's order quashing the said By-Law.
Most people in Nelson will remember tbe circumstances which led up to
the litigation referred to in the above
despatch. Last summer the present
Mayor and Council introduced a bylaw authorizing a loan of $40,000,
which was to be applied to the pur
chase of the Btock, good will and property of the Electric, Light Company of
Nelsou, tho balance of tho monoy, if
any, was to be expended in improving
ihe plant and generally adding to its
efficiency iu any way that might bo
deemed advisable The price actually
agreed upon by the company and tbe
city was, iu rouud numbers, $35,000.
A few days before tbe by-law wns
submitted to the voters for ratification,
ii great deal of opposition was manifested in various quarters against tbe
proposed sale. It was held by those
opposed to tbo By-law that tho price
lo lie n ii w: - {^xceislve, while the
fact that tbe Mayo.- was manager of,
and a large shareholder iu, the Electric Light Company also had weight
wilh many. The opposition, however,
was unsuccessful, the promoters of
tbe By-law succeeding iu obtaining
two more than the necessary two-
thirds majority.
Tho By-law was accordingly passed,
but before it became law, Dr. Arthur
on behalf of himself aud others who
wero opposed lo the sale, took legal
proceedings to quash (be by-law.
After some delay the mutter came ip
ai Victoria before Mr. Justice Walk-
cm, Mr. E. V. Dodwell, Q. C, representing Dr. Arthur, aud Messrs.
Topper, Peters & Potts, the city. Tho
points urged by the plaintiff, apart
from those purely technical, wero
lhat fatal irregularities had occurred
in connection with tho passing of
the By-law, and that tbo Mayor was
an interested party   to   the   purchase.
Mr. Justice Walkem. in a lengthy
and rather obscure judgment, overruled most ot tho points raised, but
quashed tbo By-law on tho ground
thai the Mayors dual position as
Mayor of the oity aud manager of tho
vendor Company was such that tho
transaction could nor ho upheld.
'I he city appealed to the full court,
with tbe result that tlie decision of
Mr. Justice Walkem has been reversed.
A LUCKY BET.
The   Nelson   Hockey   Team's   Dofoat
Last Season Netted Him $1,000.
In March of 18911. when J. A. Mc-
Vichy was interested in the Sandon
rink, Nelson and Sandon hookjistS
met at tho latter place to do battle
wilh tbe puck. Local and Nolson
money was freely pitted on tho match
and after one goal bad been scored by
Nelson one of their supporters sought
Mi-Vichy, who had previously beeu
Offering to back the home team, and
wanted to place $jo on the result.
McVicbv refused to consider bo smsll
a bet, offering to take $50. Tho Nelson supporter hastily bethought himself of some wild cat mining shares
Whioh be held in tbe Kettlo River
Mining & Milling Company, aud
worth about two cents a share, so
he bet MoVioby 2000 shares and $10
against Ihe hitters $60. A rocout
strike on the property, which is situated in Ihe Boundary Creek country,
coupled wilh the building of the railroad advanced the price of shares so
I bat at present they aro worth 83
cents, aud lucky Mc's realizatiou on
the bet is, $1,(100. ���Kooteuaiau.

to (live their sympathies to the Uuited
States, on account of the principal it*
sues at stake; but they could not and
did uot approve of American conduct
in respect to the Maine. They will 1 e
the less disposed to do so in the light
of Sonor Rios' recent disclosures. It'
was natural that Spain should resent i
the charge ot treachery; and as it had
not boen withdrawn, notwithstanding thoro was uo evidence to support
it, Senor Rios proposed an international commission of specialists to
make a further investigation and thus
clear the matter up. If Spain were
innocent, let it be so declared in justice to her; if guilty, she would make
such reparation as the wrong might
demand. Nothing could be fairer,
and nothing more just aud necessary
under tbe circumstances; but the pro-
pisition was not even considered. So
far as tho Maine is concerned, Spain
comes out of tho war with greater
honor than the United States.
THAT CONTPEMT  CASE.
Proceedings were instituted several
weeks ago against the editor and the
manager of The Victoria Colonist for
contempt of court, the contempt consisting of a criticism of Mr. Justice
Martin for taking up an election case
iu which he had recently been interested as a partisan. It is not supposed
that those who moved in the matter
were influenced by a desire to pro
teot the honor and dignity of the
Court; it is more likely that the action
was a part of the political game. But
it had to be beard, and the Judge
before whom the case came rendered
his decision a few days ago. It is
published at length in a recent issue of
The ColoniBt. His Lordship made no
order in the oase, which is but an
other way of dismissing it, only that
the parties are left to pay their own
costs.    This is probably  the end of it,
There are two points, however, in
oonueotion with it that will bear no
tice. Counsel for the defence raised
the objection tbat Mr. Martin is not n
Justice, his appointment not being in
accordance with a local Act which
requires that a Judge shall be a prac
tising barrister of ten years' stand inn
in the Province. Mr. Justice Drake
refused to discuss the obi-ction, saying
that as the appointment had been
made by the Governor-General-in
Council it could not be reviewed by
his Court. It is nevertheless ijterest
ing to know whether the objection
was well taken. If British Columbia
can prescribe qualifications for judges,
it is well the fact should be clearly established. The common sense of it,
from reading the sections of the British North America Act that apply, is
that it cannot and that the Provincial
Act is ultra vires. But law aud common sense are often at variance, and
they may be in this case.
The other point suggested is that
the newspapers which were egging on
the Court to commit the defendants
were guilty of a greater contempt than
that charged to the Colonist. And the
best plea they can make in their defence is a wretched one, for the only
oonoeivable motive was their jealousy
of a rival. They thought they had the
gentlemen of Tho Colonist in the toils,
aud ached to havo them punished. It
speaks little for their humanity; it
speaks less for their foelings as journalists, among whom a sense of
frnterual kindness is supposed
strongly to provail. It is the only
discreditable feature of the whole
affair.
THE AFFAIR OF THE MAINE.
What purports to be an interview
represents the Russian Emperor as
terribly in earnest in bis desire for
peace and universal disarmament.
He suggests as a solution of any difficulties that may be in the way that
the nations bind themselves until further notice to make no increaso in existing armaments, aud that this state
of things bo maintained for at least
five years. Rudyard Kipling would
suggest in reply that in five years the
Emperor would about have completed
his enormous naval programme, and
would then be ready to sing quite un
other tune. Aud tbe muHtude who think
as Kipling does would applaud. But
there are others, more charitable, pei
haps more reasonable, who at least
regard it as a possibility that tbo Em
paror is entirely sincere.
Mr. Chamberlain cannot hut be
frieudly to tho United States, bnt
some plain truths told in an article
which ho contributed to an American
magazine will not bo any too palatable
to the American people. For insts.no
ho says: "The nation which elevates
selflshuoss into a virtue and shirks ils
responsibility to the other members of
the human race, is wanting in ib
principal elements of greatness. " That
is what the United States has beon
doing ever since its formation, and it
accounts for the fact that America) s
know less of other countries than (lie
people of any other reading nation on
earth. With the policy of expansion
that has forced itself as a consequence
of the war with Spain will come
broader views and justor conceptions
of national duty.
Whenever the cable tells of a Russian
advance in China we raise a terrible
ado, and vow and declare that
Great Britain is being outruauoeuver-
od all along the line. Yet she is doing
not so badly ; in fact, in her quiet persistent way she is doing exceedingly
well. Recently an English syndicate
obtained a mining concession in Szu-
chuau which is said to be of great
value. The Province is not a large one
territorially, but contains a population
of 08,000,000, crowded ou scale of over
four hundred to tho square mile. Its
trado will bo tapped by the English
railway connecting Chun-King with
Rangoon. In any game of this kind
Russia will find it the hardest task of
her life to get ahead of Great Britain.
EDITORIAL COMMENT.
|It has been the almost unanimous feeliug of tho civilized world that in its
treatment of the Maine Incident the
Uuited States has beon unjust to Spain.
That feeling will ho accentuated by
theporsualof the interview witb Senor
Montero Rios, procured by tbo Paris
correspondent of Tho London Times,
and the full text of which was published yesterday in The Miner. Without an atom of evidence tbe Government at Washington permitted themselves to be forced into an attitude of
the worst kind of suspicion, by tho
fury of a people who did not think it
worth while to stop and reflect. It
was virtually charged that Spanish
officials at Havana cansod the disaster
to the Maine. The Spanish Government were accuBod of tho murder of
several hundred of her crew, and it
was the rage thus funned that was tbe
immediate cause of tho war. That is,
the United States went to war with
Spain because the Maine was destroyed in Havana harbor, and on the suspicion that the Spanish Governmcrt
had beou privy to the conspiracy for
blowing her up. There was an official
investigation, but no ovidence was
adduced ou which a reasonable man
would hang a dog. The American
people wero simply crazed with fury,
���nd in thoir blind rage tbo war was
precipitated.
But although the people  may, under
great    excitement,    lose   thoir   heads,
(The Pay streak, Sandon.)
In practically prohibiting Mexican
lead ores, the American Semitepr.Hided also a smart IhbIi for tho then infantile mineral development of this
country. Yet, as said before, good
may result. British mid Canadian enp-
ilnlists are beginning to see thai a profit can be made out of smelting aud refining our own ores and are interesting themselves accordingly. The
Canadian Pacific Railroad Company
are lending in tbis movement, by making extensive preparations for handling
Slocan ores at Trail. Tho Hall Mines
smelter at Nelson is also arranging to
reduce more largely on wot ores,
while tho idle works at Pilot Bay and
Golden give signs of renewed life
and ambition. The success of these
works will result in others being established, and an honest effort will bo
made to supply the home market and
compete for a share in the undeveloped demand in the Orient.

The efforts of a section of the citizens of Nolson to have tho Electric
Light By-Law declared invalid havo
been defeatod, and the Electric Light
Company will, accordingly, get (85,-
000 for their plant on Cottonwood
creek. At the regular meeting of Ihe
oity council yesterday there were present, the Mayor in Iho ohair, and Aid-
ertnen Hillyer, Madden, Whalley and
Teetzel.
After routine a report was read from
the Publio Works committee recommending that tho City Engineer be
instructed to got out plans for a
stono culvert to take off tbe water on
Ward street between Victoria and Baker streets, and get out specifications i
and au estimate of the cost of opening
up that part of Ward street; the com- |
mittee also recommended that similar
aotion be taken with regard to tbe
grading of several other streots. Tbe
reason advanced by tbo committee for
tbe immediate doing of this work
(which had hitherto been regarded as
part of the work to be douo by the
next council) was. that the work required could be better done in winter
time. The Mayor announced that he
had come to the conclusion that tbe
comer of Vernon and Ward streets.
at the north corner of the bridge, would
be tho best place for a weigh bridge,
as it would be easily accessible from
both depots. It was resolved that
tho scales offered by the Hall Mines
Co., for "il 10,should be purchased, nnd
set up on tho site mentioned.
Aid. Hillyer then brought up some
Fire Department regulations that had
beeu drawn up by Chief of the Fire Department subject to the approval of
the council. A committee, consisting
of Aid. Teetzel. Whalley and Hillyer, was appointed to go into the matter.
After some accounts bad beon ordered paid,a resolution was passed whore-
by those iu arrears of their light aud
wator rales for the current mouth will
receive a rebate of 88 per cent if thev
pay by the 84th instant, and of 2ti per
cent if they pay by the 80th.
The final consideration of the curfew
bylaw was postponed until the next
nieeeting of tho council.
Aid. Hillyer said tho Eire boys
needed rubber coats, belts,and helmets.
At the last lire they wore all wet to
the skin in a few minutes. Tho
Mayor stated that rubber coats had
been ordered some tims back from a
local dealer, but that if the order had
not been despatched lie would plaoe it
elsewhere. Helmets will also bo provided.
The council then adjourned until
Tuesday, but. before the members separated, a telegram was brought to the
Mayor which stated that the appeal
against Mr. Justice Walkem's decision
.quashing the Electric Light Bylaw had
been sustained with costs.

Viotoira, Deo. 19.��� Argument on the
appeal of the defendants in the milling suit (or the Iron Mask vs. the
Centre Star oommenoed today, and
���will probably continue for two or
three days.
This most important mining case
has been in the courts for about a
year, and is likely to continue for
some time The facts are briefly
these: The Centre Star was located
under the old mineral act which permitted the owners of a claim in which
the apex of the lode occurred to follow the dip of the vein outside the
boundaries of their claim. Tho Centra Star people claimed to be in this
position, and Bought to stop the Iron
Mask from mining what they held to
be their ore. Litigation onsued and
the first round of the battle ended in
favor of the Centre Star.
In continuing their workings,
howovor, the Centre Star miners encountered a horse, whereupon the
Iron Mask immediately obtained au
injunction restraining them from
working further, the contention being, that to be allowed to follow the
vein outsido of the boundaries of one's
claim, the ore body must be continuous.
The facts and the law in the case
alike are complictated, and, unless an
arrangement is arrived at, tho case is
likely to go to the Privy Council, the
ore body being exceedingly valuable,
and both parties being well supplied
with funds.

ore is dry ore The property was
worked steadily all last summer,
and a large amount of development
work was done, aim there are still
180,000 shares iu the treasury, The
vendors are taking shares ut pur value
for the balance of the purchase prico
owing to them instead ot cash. Arrangements are being made to clear off
a fow trifling liabilities that were incurred last season, aud for the further
development of the mine. Operations
will be resumed iu the spring when
the suow gets off the mountains.
* #   *
One of the oldest of the old timers
spun this half prophetic yarn to a
Spokane reporter: "Every ten years
we have a mining excitement in this
country. TheBe events have boon occurring regularly every year thut ends
with tho figure 9 since the eventful
year of '49, when the famous rush to
California took place. There has not
been a .single break in all that timo.
There have been rushes between
tiroes, hut tho nine years never miss.
Some of the rushes, stampedes, excitements���call tbeni whut you like���have
been  more    noteworthy   than others,
but all havo beeu of   such   importance
as to stamp the   year plainly upon the
memory   of   mining men who participated in the   events.    Now   I mention
this because   I feel it in my bones, see
the   signs   of   the times,   scent
the air around   me   that the rush
which is duo   next   year will   start in
the early   spring.    It's   coming,   sure
as fate.    Now. just   look over the cast
50   years,   and see   if   my   theory   of
these periodica]   mining stampedes   is
not  correct.      One   of   you   at  least.'
can romember the rush   to   California
iu '40 when 150,000 men   dared   perils
of plain aud sea to  reach tho scene  of
Marshall's discovery.    Ten years later.
iu 1895, tho miners of California stampeded to Fraser   river   in   British Columbia.    It   was   a  mighty rush, and
one that was well rewarded.    It was a
Yankee   rush   too.    I believe between
75.000 and   100,000   men   went to   the
Fraser and the   districts north of it in
lhat  year.    The two stampedes which
I have mentioned were caused by   discoveries of   placer   gold.    The one  of
tho next decade was a  quart/,   excitement, and was due to  the discovery
and development of the great Comstock
ledge at Virginia City,   Nov.,   a ledge
which sot the world to   talking.    The
rrsh of '99 will be like it.    Silver hod
its innings   again   in 1879,   when the
tide of mining excitement set strongly
toward  Leadville.    But  in that same
yoar   the   free-milling   gold ledges of
Tombstone,   Arizona,     also   attracted
many.    The last   excitement   wo  had
upon a year ending  with the  figure 9
was  caused  by  the  famous  Harqua
Hala gold mines on the Colorado river,
and the silver  mines at  Chihuahua,
Mexico, both of which events occurred
in 1889, and   caused   many   thousands
of old time   prospectors and miners to
got the stampede   frenzy in their vein
once  more.    I   am not    alone  in tho
belief that   these   rushes   come   every
ten   years.    You   will find   many  an
old-time prospector and minor who remembers   the   stirring  years  I   have
mentioned,    who   is looking   forward
to the coming year as one which   will
seo the world   stirred   again with the
intense interest in mines."
* *   *
Cascade Record: Hon. J. Fred
Hume. Provincial Secretary and Minister of Mines has requested Gold
Commissioners, Mining Recorders
and others to send him such suggestions as it would seem best to make,
as regards changes in the Mineral Aot
The idea is an excellent one, for while
it is uot likely that a tithe of the suggestions will be acted upon by the
Legislature, yet some ideas for the
better, along tbe lines indicated ought
to bo broagbt out. All mining men
agree that the Act is far from satisfactory in its present form, aud yet any
changes must be such as will benefit
the many and not the few. In other
words, the welfare of tho trail-blazer
and prospector must bo looked after as
well as that of tho capitalist and investor. In several sections meeting
have beon called to consider and recommend changes, und great interest
has always been eviucod. Among
other things tbat ought to be considered are claim jumping, reduction of
recording fees, unlimited locations by
on person, laws governing corporations, assessments, etc.
Our Legislators will be watched
closely as to thoir standing on these
matters when they come up for consideration by the Provincial Parliament.
