The press dispatches are not telling the whole tale
of the impeachment of New York's governor and readers
between the lines can draw tlieir own conclusions from
the following facts: Governor Sulzer originally was elect-
ed to the post of chief executive of New York state by the
Tammany Hall machine   Some months ago he bolted from;
the Tammany ranks. Lately charges of crooked work have
been preferred against him by Tammany agents.  The ma
jority of the legislative committee, including the chair
man, that investigated these charges were drawn from the
Tammany ring.  The commit te has reported Sulzer as wilfully corrupt in office and Majority Leader Levy in the
house of representatives, also a Tammany man, is conducting Sulzers impeachment.
AU these facts havo no particular interest on this side
of the line except as an object lesson on the danger of a political machine with almost unlimited power.

Capetown, Aug. 12. A   new and a
strange war is being fought In South
lt Is s war In which Boer Is opposi d
to Boer. And it Is waged with pen
and Ink by post. 11 Is an epistolary
struggle for the moment, a campaign
by correspondence. What the grent
mass of tha Dutch dread more than
anything else is that it Bhould develop
into an open conflict at the polls. Por
that way lies the return of the liritish
section to power.
The forces ot radicalism ami reaction, led by General Hertzog, are attacking the nriiiy of the moderates.
which swears allegiance to General
Hnlh:'., the prime minlBter of the union.
One day there is a skirmish between
outposts in some Dutch journal in the
backvcld The next, the leaders indulge In a long-distance duel with
heavy guns���by letter. Everywhere

ore almost unknown to Kngiish poll-
tics. They are long letters, portentous
letters, letters tilling six, seven, or
eight columns in the newspaper-!, let -
terB Impossible save lu a land where
tomorrow Is also a day. They are full
of personal details, quaint expostula-
tlons and appeals, and special arguments addressed to a primitive people. The deluge of written words
would Interest very few people outside
South Africa. Vet llie letters are Important. They will Bnd a place in history. For good or 111, they are Influ-
enclng tin- future of the union of South
Africa und its relations wllh the rest
of the liritish empire. They show that
there is in South Africa a new Boer,
unwilling to follow In the footsteps of
the old liner, who made possible the
tragedy of Krugerism.
Apostle of Conciliation.
General Botha Is the new Boer. He
He Is 'hi' apostle of racial conciliation
Ever since the war he lias Etood for
the new faith. He preached conciliation as a candidate for lhe first Transvaal purlin ment. He practised it ns
premier of the Transvaal. He does the
same today as prime minister of the
same union. Between General Boths
and Sir Starr Jameson there stood
but the slightest differences.
General Hertzog. on the other hand,
has appealed always lo the old Iloer
He raised a bitter language controversy in the Free State. Ills attitude
has always given the public the Impression that he Is anti-British. He
may vow Unit he Is not���then all one
can say is that he has been unfortunate in choosing wordB in which to
express his ideas. And since General
Botha turned General Hertzog out "f
th,. union cablnel because he became
an Impossible member of a ministry
pledged to conciliation, the very vir

Bellingham, Au,;. IJ. For the dr..'
(iiiif in ilu- historj of th ��� s::'1" of
Washington three lish trays have
been seized by Un* lish commissioner
and guards have been placed in
charge to prevent the owners from j
fishing there.
The rea.-on fir the Beizure of the
traps Is beesi se of their being placed
in a greaier depth of water than 65
feet, at the lowest low tide i.f He1
year, which is tl:,- maximum depth
in whicb they can bo constructed under the law.
One of tho tr:r,is, t'n* property of
K. A. Welch, is located nt SumV. r j
bay on Ouemes island, and is regard
������rt as possibly the most valuable on
Pugrt sound. At tlie time of its being taken mi charge by th" deputl s
of Kish CommlBBloner L. II. Darwin,
it had abrrat t9,000 sockeye salmi n in
it, and them  are being held there.
The other traps are the property of
.Krank V.'Vight, of the Carl sle Packing
���company, and are known as the Village Prim and Point Mldgley traps,
and are very valuable, as ihey rani;
possibly third in Importance as lish

fMaregardlug the orders of the lish
���tsBsaait -i-. mer, nil the fish wen- taken

Mldgley trap yesterday morning.
The foreman  in charge of    taking
tomt thai fish was arrested by Deputy
r'is'h Commissioner Mlllott jus: as he
completed the work and was broughl ,
to Bell Ingham.
Actions were filed yesterday afier-

to form a new league which would
have Included New Westminster and
the two Vancouver teams Is beginning to show up ln a new light, for
yesterday it was announced in Vancouver tliat the green shirts had hung
up their slicks for the season and
would not participate In any more

Then he mentioned the name of a famous comedian.

What at first looked like a case of

simmered down to a common assault
affair took place in the Chinese quarter last evening with Wong Ting as
the aggressor.
Wong, according to his statement to
the police last evening, is a king of
jack-ofall-trados, first being employed
at Eraser Mills and later jn the river
ub a fisherman.
Sometime ago he became mixed up
in a gambling game in the lower quarter of the city, ufter which he was
creditor to Wong Sung Loo to the extent of $3. Wong, in these -stringent
financial times, dearly wanted the
three slmoleons last evening and he
dunned his former gambling pall for
tin- amount.
Would lie pay then and there? No
slree. lie would await tli" coming of
Bome kind friend whose financial
standing was on a par with a Rockefeller or Gould. Waiting did not appeal to Wong so Ting grabbed an axe.
