Tenth Year
It  Makes the Boers Think They  Must
Fight—A Warlike Story From
Seattle, Washington-
Loudon, Aug. 80. —The Pretoria correspondent of tbe Morning Post says:
Tha Boer offlcinls, after reading the
cabled reports of Mr. Chamberlain's
Birmingham speech, consider that war
is inevitable. The speech has undoubtedly inflamed tho war spirit here. The
Boers are uow all alarmed except thosn
in Johannesburg. Their ooiumissiar-
iat is fairly good. All the forts are amply victualled. Ammunition whioh
Mr. Bcbreiner allowed io pass through
Oape Colony came direct to Pretoria.
It was never intended for the Oiange
Fr°e State. President Kruger does not
hesitate to express tbe view tbat war
is inevitable. He has stocked the
presidency witb ample supplies of pro-
visious to secure his own person from
privation aud he is often heard repeating the T.tni Psalm. Tbe Boers are
energetically engaged in poisoning the
minds ot tbe natives aguinst the Brit
iiih and they bave approached the Zulu
Cbief Dinizuln, wbo appeal's undecid
ed what cause to espouse. But Zulus
are prepared for the expected flghring
and it must be remembered that Diui-
zulu was deported to St. Helena with
several other chiefs and kepta prisoner
there by tho British for several  years.
Tbe Time says editorially this
morning: '' There is the best reu-on to
believe that tbe recent note of Mr.
Chamberlain will be almost the Ins1
occasion ou which Great Britain will
ask President Kruger whether be is
in earnest in bis promises of concessions. Tbe note undoubtedly called
for an immediate answer, and, when
n reasonable time for answer has elapsed, Great Britain will no longer pay
much attention to President Kruger
but will form her judgment by his
actions. The Boois should bear in
mind that throughout the whole controversy, the Cologne UiVzette hns
warned thu Transvaal that it was
placing itself in un unfavorable position, and thnt in the event of war,
nobody wonld lift n finger to prevent
the destrnotion^of the Uepulbio. "
Capetown, Aug. 80. — There was a
violent scene in the Cape House of Assembly today vhen Mr. Cecil Rhodes
repeated his convioti.cn that the Transvaal secret service fuud was largely
used during the last Capo Colony elections for tbe expenses of the Afrikander candidates. He said be hoped thut
it tbe forthcoming Transvaal settlement the secret service payment list
would be destroyed as otherwise many
Cape families would feel uncomfortable. Several Ministerialists were afterwards reproved from the oliair for
fiercely retorting against this statement. The Government has refused to
provide facilities tor women aud
children to leave Johannesburg. There
is great activity at the Situonstowii
dockyard iu drilling men on shore and
overhauling vessels.
London Aug. 81.—The Daily Mail
says it learns that a large consignment
of cartridges for the Boers has reoently
been shipped through German agents.
These it says   were   manufactured   in
Capetown Aug. 80.—At a meeting
of the Scandinavians of Johannesburg
just held—only two of them voted
in favor of forming a volunteer oorpin
case of war. A deputation of Uitlanders bas called upon the British iipent
at Viotoria regarding the great depression. A merchant whose stock is valued at £40,000 said his duily sales now
were about £8. '
Berlin Aug. 80.—The Nedestea
Nnchriten, whioh reiterates its declaration regarding European nentrality in
the event of hostilities in tbe Tansvaal,
says: Tbe Boers should have fought
tbe question on the basis of the Bloem-
fontoin discussion. Tbe anti-Boer feeling in Great Britain would pass away
if Great Britain's demands were
granted. France without Russia cannot stir a finger and Russia will not.
Austria-Hungary deolared nentrality
in 1896, and Italy will do nothing.
Firmly convinced that the German
Government will maintain the strictest nentrality we consider it all the
more onr duty to warn the Transvaal
against a destructive policy.
Seattle Wash.   Aug.   RO. -David  L.
Wilson, who olaims to be an  agent of
the British Government and to have
important papers for the home office,
has arrived here en route to London
from tbe Transvaal. Mr. Wilson says
be has no doubt tbat there will be a
war. " I have been three years in the
Transvaal and know the leaders of the
Boer Government well. President
Kruger does not want war. He is now
an old man and as suoh bas not tbe
control of the cabinet tbat be bad
onoe. Tbe cabinet is composed of
young bloods who want independence
and who I may say will never give
up until they have either attained or
been wiped nut of existence by English
forces. This is why I say there will
be war."

Result  of  the    International   Yacht
Races  at Toronto.
The 0. P. B. telegraph company did
not eeem to be aware that international yuoht races took plaoe on Toronto Bay last week and The Miner
was consequently unable to give the
results. However, as many Nelson people are interested in the result of tbe
series of races for the Canada's oup,
whioh took place off Toronto harbor
on August 22, 23 and 24, between the
Beaver of tbe Royal Canadian Yacht
Club, and tbe Genessee of the Chicago
Yaoht Club, Tbe Miner herewith
gives tbe particulars of the race:
First Race, August 22, round triangle, 31 miles—Genesee won by oue
minnte 22 seoouds.
Seoond race, August 2, to wind-
warn, nine miles and return—GeneBee
won by 89 seconds.
' Third race and match, August 24,
around t-innglc, 21 miles—Genesee
won by 11 minutes, 47 seconds
The first day's race was iu a breeze,
und the Beaver was leading, witb
very prospect of winning, wheu an accident to her rigigug put her out of
the raoe. The remaining races
were sailed on an unruffled sea, with
hardly a zephyt to swell the sails, and
"s a drifting machine the Yankee
yacht showed great superiority. Had
tbeie been tbe seinblence of a breeze j
many profess to believe the Beaver
would have won.
There is still another chance left for
the Beaver to defeat the year's winner of the Canada's oup. It is tbe R.
C. Y. C. 's intentiou to challenge tbe
Rochester Club for the Fisher Oup, to
be sailed in September, when there
is more liklibood of strong winds
Rochester yachtsmen say m case of
such a challenge, they will name the
Genesee to defend, and all of them
hope for the race.
Kennedy, the young man who has
been a prisoner in the police cells on
the charge of vagrancy but who the
polioe thought was mixed up witb the
recent burglaries, escaped from bis
cell last night, presumably about ten
o'clock, and at the time of going to
press was still at large. With him
went the best opportunity the polioe
have had for cleariug up the burglary
mysteries. He effected Mb escape by
wrenching out a bar of his oell
window, and squeezing himself
through the space thus provider..
There is every probability that Ken
nully had confederates as it would have
been very difficult for him to loosen
the bars himself. The polioe were
quite positive that he was one of the
burglars but no conclusive evidence
against him oould be secured. If he
was concerned in them he must have
had friends ou the outside who
would be auxlong to have him free before any damaging admissions were
made hy him, aud they would certainly do all they could to assist him
to regain liberty. That he had some
assistance ia evident. As suon as the
esoape was discovered Cbief Jarvis
wired to all outside points aud sent
men to Ymir to intercept the fugitive
if be was going that direction. Special men wero put to work searching
ihe City, hut with poor electric lights
and a rain storm it was a dark propo
Tbe faot tbat the man escaped is
sufSoient evidence that the cells are
not iu proper condition The polioe
cannot watch the prisoners all the time
as there is patrol work to be done that
mnst be attended to. If the polioe
arrest men the City shonld put tile
cells into sufficiently good condition to
hold them.
Since writing the above.Jand at a i
early hour this morning, a Miner representative visited the City goal and
examined the window through whijh
the prisoner escaped. The bars are
fastened into the windows in a very
weak manner, tbe two ends sinking
into mortar only abuut half an inoh.
They oan easily be worked loose and
when bent ouly a little one] end can be
sprung out. It ia strange that more
prisoners have not escaped. It is impossible for tbe police to do their work
properly with suoh miserable accommodation and it is not fair to expect
them to do so.
Patrolman Hardy was sent to Ymir
on foot. In thunder, lightning and
rain the trip will not be a pleasant
Meeting of the iVedical Association at
Toronto—Western Grain Trade—
M of a Strike.
Brussels, Aug. 81.—The Belgian
ohamber of deputies today rejected a
motion to revise the constitution, the
vote standing 96 against 81. The motion was intended to pave the way for
a universal suffrage bill.
Wm. Sutherland   Will   Be Tried  on a
Charge Preferred By A. B. Gray.
The case of William Sutherland, who
was chaiged with receiving moneys
and uot accounting for the same under
Seotion 80H of the Criminal Code,
oame before Magistrate Crease yesterday. The prosecutor, Mc A. B.Gray,
was represented by Mr. R. M. Macdouald, while Mr. S. S. Taylor, Q. C.,
appeared for the accused.
Mr. Gray stated in his evidence
thut he was a commission merchant in
Nelson and that he had employed tbe
accused to solicit orders for him in the
Boundary Country. He gave the accused t90 for his expenses. Sutherland,
instead of returning within eight or
niue days, stayed away some five
weeks. Daring that period he received sundry sums of money for Mr. Gray
and it was fur failing to account to his
employer for these thut the present proceedings were   taken.
Mr. Taylor for the defence endeavored to show that Sutherland hud utilized these moneys for Mr. Gray's bus-
ness, but no evidence was brought to
Bnbstantiate this contention. Mr.
Taylor further maintained that theBe
proceedings were not the proper subject for a criminal court, but were of
the nature of a civil action. The criminal code could not be used in order to
obtain civil redress.
Mr. Macdouald pointed out that the
fact that Mr. Gray had provided the
accused with ample funds for his expenses met Mr. Taylor's argument
that the moneys received bad been
used iu Mr. Gray's business. The
magistrate committed the prisoner for
trial, allowing bail which he fixed at
(400 and two sureties of $200 eaoh.
Scarborough, Eng., Aug. 31.—In a

Cbioago, Aug. 80.—A special to the
Tribune iroui Ottawa, rays:
Washington dispatches ielating to an
alleged secret understanding between
the United States authorities and
Premier Laurier are regarded here as
having some foundation in fact, though
they may be to some extent oonjec
rural. Any understanding ie ueces-
Burily unwritten and private, it is
stated. It is unofficial and temporary,
aud disposes finally of none of the
questions, but simply holds matters in
statu quo.
The secret uud. refunding, according
to ministerial c:r. 1* s here, is merely
to hold in check ami defer pojsibje
demonstrations provoked by the iutin-
tion of the Pivs ue .t to cede to Canada
a free port in thu l yun caunl in return
for Canada's relinquishing her olaims
to the eutii'u inm I waters of the inlet,
including Dyea, Skugwuy aud Pyramid Harbor.

school this morning. About 400 delegates were present from the various
sections in U. S. and Canada. One of
the moBt important matters discussed

Output of  Coke by Crow's Nest Coal
Co. Will Average 600 Tons Daily.
Mr. T. G. Procter  returned  yesterday from   a   trip in   East  Kootenay.
He visited Fernie and   went  over the
coal  mine   and   cokeing plant of   the
Crow' s Nest Coal Oompany, with  Mr.
Robert   Jaffray,   and was much interested in what he saw there.    As many
' as 186 new ooke ovens have been lately
J built  making  a  total of 280.   These
ovens oan turn out ou an average two
tons of coke a day or roughly speaking
the total output of coke will average
260 tons a day. The Hall Mines smelter
use about 35 tons of coke per day,
aud if this be taken as an average
there will be more ooke produoed at
Fernie than is needed for all tbe smelters iu B. C. This means that outside
trade is expeoted. If satisfactory arrangements oan be arranged for the
transfer from the O. P. R to the
American lines tbere will be no difficulty in disposing of tbe coke in the
Stales. The demand for coal increases
daily and bo far the quality supplied
bus giveu great satisfaction.
From Fernie Mr. Procter wont on to
Elko, the townsite on the Crow's Nest
belonging to tho Kooteuay Valley Land
Co. Elko is growiug in size and importance and is thought by some,
whose opinion is of considerable
weight,to be the future commercial and
inunufncturiiig town of that district.
The water power from the Elk river
theie is enormous and easily utilized.
Houses are springing op in all directions. The new hotel built hy Mr.
Hnggart is exceedingly comfortable and
the cuisine is one of the beet in th
KootenayB. Elko is also an admirable
(■.untie at the present moment for
sportsmen Mountain sheep nnd bPar
mav be had within easy reach of the
town nnd there arc any amount of
deer and a few elk to be found tbere.
The angling in the Elk lirer is first
rate, Mr. Procter's description of the
same having caused a feeling of un
est in the mind of at least one member
of Tho Miner's staff and n suggestion
that, the health of the said member requires n short holiday, the country
around Elko is open aud easy to travel.
Agricultural produce from tha To
tiacco Plains comes into tho town
daily. Tho Elko saw mill is about to
ship 100,000 feet of lumber to McLeod.
It should be mentioned that Hilko is
easily reached from Nelson, as leaving

At Kootenay Landing Mr. Procter
heard that the road to the North Star
mine  will  be completod this  full.
Tbe Crow's Nest track is now iu excellent order and delays from mud
slides need no longer be feared.
American Money Will Invade   the Financial Centre of the World.
A splendid compliment has just
been paid to Canadian bankei-s and
Canadian banking institutions, a El nt
the same time a big pi6ce of new s has
come to light, says the Montreal Ga-
xette of Monday. It appears that n
number of New York capitalists some
time since deoided to establish a powerful banking institution iu London,
tbe great market of tbe world, believing of course tbat the thousands of
Amerioans constantly in Great Britain
and the contineut would contribute to
a great extent to tho success of the
financial scheme, that is so soon to be
launched in the great business and financial centre of the Old World. The
amount, of oapital to be invested is said
to be enormous, and although the widest figures are afloat this part of tbe
story cannot be confirmed or contradicted. Some Bay twenty millions,
some say fifty, but one thing iB certain, all the money required to give
tbis new Yankee notion a fair Btart
will be forthcoming, and it remains to
be seen if the New Yorkers can give
Londoners pointers in banking and finance. It is said that John W. Mackay,
the silver king of the United States,
is one of tbe promoters of the big
American bank that is so soon to settle
down in London, aud here the part of
tbe story so interesting to Montreal
comes in. The first important thing
to be accomplished was to secure a
wide awake gentleman thoroughly conversant with the ins and outs of both
English and American banking, und
these millionaires were nn the look out
for such a man. Mr. Chnrles Hosmer,
the general manager of the Canadian
Pacific Telegraph Company, happened
to be in London, and being consulted
ou this most important matter, he naturally thought of his friend, Mr. E.
L. Pease, joint general manager of
the Merchants' Bank of Hiilifnx, in
this city. This was no sootier said
than a cable was Hashed under the Atlantic, and the clever Montreal banker
was invited to come to Loudon.
Mr. Pease stood not upon the order
of his going, but went. Although
thlB does not signifv that he has accepted tbe magnificent offer tbat has
beeu made him, viz: to name his own
salary, and become the bead of one of
the most important finnncial institutions in the world. In fact the statement has been made Unit Mr. Peise
has declined the tempting offer, and
will remain with the Merchants' Bank
of Halifax, while others affirm that
the question is not vet definitely set-
led, and that Mr Perse, who is about
leaving for Canada, in company witb
Mr. Hosmer, has asked till September
to decide.
Montreal, Aug. 31.—The Alan
steamer Parisian, Capt. Brown, from
Montreal for Liverpool, touched the
sido of tbe dredged ohaiiuel through
St. Mary'B current, when outward
hound this morning, owing to her
steering gear getting out of order.
Tbe steamer proceeded, tnt later it
was discovered that she was making
water, The ship came to anchor at
Oontrecour, and tugs and lighters
were sent down to lighten her cargo.
The Porisian will proceed to Quebec
in the morning, when it is expected
a days detention will enable repairs to
be made.
Dvlj Chronicle Doubts That Kruger Will
Meet Milner in Oape Tom.—Ho

Capetown, Aug. 81.—A dispatch
from Bulawayo gays tbat Petrui Vil-
goeu, tbe Dutchman, who was charged
a week ago with inciting the native*
ot Beohuanaland to rebel against tbe
British authorities was today bound
over in heavy securities to keep the
peace, but wus immediately re-arrested ou a charge of having stolen a wagon belonging to Cbief Khama.
London, Sept. 1.—The Pretoria oor.
respondent of the Daily Chroni.de says:
President Kruger is not likely to
agree to a conference with Sir Alfred
Milner at Capetown, but he might go
to Colesburgb, just within the borders
of  Cape Colony.
Johannesburg Aug. ill.— The Standard Diggers News of Johannesburg de
Scribes the Boer women as very warlike. They ure forming rifle clubs in
many districts, and petitioning tbe
Transvaal Governnient against granting the franchise to the Uitlanders on
the basis of a five year residence.
Bloomfontein, Aug. 81.—It is asserted try a locul newspaper that orders have beeu given for the immediate supply of an equipment of cartridges to the Orange Free State artillery.
London, Aug. 31.—The Daily Chronicle publishes the foregoing despatch
from Capteown: It is rumored here
that Sir Alfred Milner, Governor of
Cape Colony, contemplates dismissing
tho Schreiner ministry nnder his spec-
ial powers. If he does it is feared that
u rebellion will break ont, as tha
Dutch would believa that Great Britain is ugain forcing Cecil Rhodes to the
Cupet.iwn,    Aug.   81.—The   rumor*
that the Sobreiner  cabinet   would   be
dismissed cans d an   unusual   episode
in the House of Assembly.    Mr. Ce il.
Rhodes asked for a Bpeedy passage of the
estimates, in order   to enable  bim   to
go to Rhodesia.    Tbe other leaders  of
the Opposition  supported   the demand
but   the   Ministerialists, fearing  that
i lie completion of the  estimates wonld
be the signal  for  their  downfall, declined to te foroed and  after the passage of a few votes the honse proceeded
to other business.
Provincial Government Not Wealthy
Enough to Extradite Bim.
Tne Government have deoided not to
take any proceedings to extradite
Burns wbo, it will be remembered, escaped from the Provincial goal at Nelson, and waB captured at Northport.
Yesterday Mr. Bullock-Webster, reoeived a telegram from the Attorney-
General's office to that effeot.
Mr. BullocR-WobBter says that no reason is given for this step by the Government. The last prisoner the Provincial i ■ovcmiiieut endeavored to extradite oost the Proviuoe about $1,000.
Possibly this may be the reason
wbioh bas caused the present decision
to be arrived at.
In connection with the Burns oase
the Russian I Miner says:
Thomas Burns, who received a sentence of 18 months at Nelson, for robbing two hurtenders at tbe circus canteen on the 8th of August, was evidently not favorably impressd with
the surroundings of bis new plaoe of
residence and seized the first opportunity to escape, The jail authorities at
Nelson evidently kept the matter
qniet, ns nothing was beard in Rossland about the esoape until today,
when Constable Devitt, of Trail, was
ordered to go to Northport. where
Burns was under arrest. The constable returned in the afternoon empty
banded, as the prisoner, having had
one taste of Canadian justice, wis in
no way inclined to return for another
lose, and declared he would tight extradition. The polioe anticipafo no
difficulty In securing the transfer of
the fugitive to this side of the line,
though there may be sonic delay.
Tho prisoner, in telling his experiences to tbe constable yesterday said:
'The Rossland polioe are pretty
slick, nil right, but those Nelion fellows are easy." From which it may
be inferred tnat Mr. Burns has not
been unacquainted with polioe methods in the past,
New York, Aug. 31.— The American

A local paper had stated that the
work done in un eigbt-hour shift at
the Ajax Fraction was eiiual to that
formerly (lone in ten hours, and the
mnnager, Mr. Gintzburger, was given
as authority for the statement. Several of the nowspaper* throughout the
Province thut are still defending tho
Eight-Hour law and denying tha disastrous effects of it copied the report
and thus gave it further circulation,
glad, of course, to fasten on any evi-
dencj that would help to excuse the
Government that are responsible for
the legislation. Mr. Gintzburger has
deemed it necessary to put himself right
by giving the statement a flat contradiction, whioh he does in a letter addressed to The Mining Review, of
He has uot said tbat the miners at
the Ajax Fraction do as much work iu
eight hours as was formerly done in
ten. His reply to tbe assertion that
he hud said so is: "This I emphatically deny. " It will be generally ad-
milted that Mr. Gintzburger knows
better what he said and what he thinks
than does the newspaper that professed
to report him, and the other newspapers that hastened to quote what was
falsely attributed to him. He has not
been guilty of giving expression to
such an absurd opinion. It would be
quite as sensible to say that a mau
can walk as far in eight hours as he
can in ten. A sprinter can keep up a
hot paoe for one hundred yards, but
it is quite a different nfl'an when he
has to do with] miles. For a quarter
of an hour a miuer oould work ut u
fast rate, and with intervals between
for rest he could inthirty-two of them,
do more work than another in eight
hours straight. But in starting out on
a day of eigbt hours he would strike
the same gate as he would ou a day
of ten, and at the end of the
eight hours be would be short
in the quantity of work done exactly
by the two houis. It is dishonest to
p.'etend that it is or oun be otherwise.
No miner thinks of regulating his
pace so that be shall do in eight hours
what in other circumstances required
ten. Working men are not wound up
for different degrees of energy or
speed. They have their natural pace,
and tbis they maintain, whether tbe
shift is eight hours or ten. It follows,
therefore, that in the shorter day there
is a loss of twenty, per cent, as compared witb the louger.
There is not a mine worker or mine
manager in the country who does not
know this. But in defeuce of the Government it is thought to he necessary
to insist on the fiction that a man will
do as muob in eight hours as he can in
ten, for if this is abandoned the only
defence that can be advanced in behalf of the striking Unions falls to the
gronnd. These say that the miners
are entitled to tha old wage for ten
hours, because they do as muoh work
in eight hoars under the new law.
They know better, just as Mr. Giuzt-
bnrger knows better, and as a! I wbo
have a practical knowledge of mining
operations do. And the common sense
of (nose who have no practioal knowledge leashes the same, for eight are
not tea.
we reflect we   must  admit   that nothing better  could   have lieen   expected.
How could we look for  stable  government from   a party whose only or controlling  prinoiple  is faith in a  leader

"Semlin''     represent''   Tomorrow    'I
may be "Martin,"   or   "Cotton,"   or
"EbeitB. "   Tbe man may be   unobjectionable, but wbo can say what any of
these stand for? Certainly for no politi
cal principe, and we do not know why
the people  should bother over a  mere
question of personal glorification.
We believe it will have to come to a
d'.vision on old party lines before there
is rest. But that may not be neoessary
now, perhaps not even possible. At
any rate there is tmmediaie need that
all who desire to see the defeat of the
present Government should meet in
consultation, uud agree ou what shall
bo done in that event. Before they
can oonu; to an nuder-tandingj on thiB
important point, they must agree ns to
the coarse best calculated to lead np
to it. And that means organisation.
They must select n leader and lay
down a policy. This shonld be done
as soon as possible, for the present sit
tuition cannot lust and tbe only escnpe
from it is a dissolution aud general
election. Thut may come any tunc,
and it is the duty ot thine opposed to
the Government toj/be prepared for it.

who shall represent them. This should
suggest the importance of immediate
preparation, and whether it is to be
tbat Kamloops convention or some
other, the wise among them will see
that there in no time to lose in calling
ment, Dutch impudence or insolence,
that will cau.-e trouble tbrougnout tbe
whole of South Africa as long as it is
suffered to endure. Only war can stamp
it out effectually.
The proposition to hold an Opposition convention at Kamloops has taken
definite shape, thankH to the editor of
The Standard. We hope the movement
will be sucoe.3?ul, and unle.;s those
who are dissatisfied with present conditions prove themselves quito unworthy Ol the politioal freedom they
e ljoy it will be. These are numerous
enough to oause a revolution, if united
and aotive, bnt without organisation
they can do little. If they have the
least hope of accomplishing anything,
1'iey mnst see the necessity of getting
together and agreeing ou some intelligible plan of action.
The Miner is impressed with a strong
fear that political matters in tbis Province will never be reduced to a really
healthy basis until the people divide
on regular party lines. That maybe a
pity, but we fear there is nothing else
for it. We would prefer to have our
local affairs conducted without any
regard to those party divisions, or preferences, or prejudices whioh we affect
in Federal elections. There ought to
be no reason why this should not Ire
done, but unfortunately what ought
to be is not always what shall be.
We see with much chagrin and not a
little dismay  to wiiat a state of  con-
Mr Maepberson will not say that
ho is at enmity with the Government
and desires its overthrow. In an interview with u Colonist correspondent
a few days ago,be declined to be led into committing himself ns far as that
would take him. But in effect he said
several things that meant quito as
much. For example, he took the ground
that n representative should be governed less by his own views or pre
judices than by the opinion held by his
constituents, and a little farther
on he expressed the belief that he and
Mr. Martin could be re-elected in Vancouver uud that Mr. Cotton could not.
He could not be re-elected unless he
posEessed the confidence of the majority, and as that majority are against
Mr. Cotton—thut is, aguinst the Government—it follows thut Mr. Maepberson cannot be in sympathy with him.
And as he pats himself side by side
with Mr, Martin, he indicates with
sufficient clearness where he is to be
fouud when the time comes. Asked
the straight question, however, he declined to say whether he was Government or Opposition, which merely
proves that Mr. Macphersou is no
wiser than the ostrich, and thinks by
sticking bis bead in the sand nobody
can  see bim.
There were some things of interest in the interview nevertheless. "What is the use of talking about Opposit.on?" was bis querulous response to a question. "The
Opposition nnd the Government cannot
compromise on tho isBaes of the day.
There will be no amalgamation, und
neither putty is strong enough to carry
on the government of the country.
Therefore there must be an appeal to
the oountry. " Replying to this in its
editorial oolumn, The Colonist ventures
to disagree, and expresses the belief
thnt "before the House meets a sufficient number of members will have declared themselves opposed to the Government to give the Opposition a sufficient majority ou a vote of want of oou
fidence to demonstrate that a dissolution is not necesBiiry." We are more
inoliued to Mr. Macpherson's view of
Mr Maepberson may so declare himself; and Mr. Martin, and Mr. Higgins,
aud Mr. Helgesseii, and half a dozen
others. But these men, while willing
enough to defeat the Government, will
not work with tha Opposition. There
are really three parties at present,Ministerial, Opposition, and Adnllamites,
neither one of which can command a
majority over the tho other two. How,
then, is it possible to form a stable
Government? Thore is notniug for it

voluntarily assist in degrading tiem.

Our highly esteemed contemporary,
The Columbian, is quite too iunocent
for this wioked world. Its editors will
never fully reap tbe reward of all
their virtue until they find themselves
publishing a paper in Paradise. An
Eastern Conservative organ had been
predicting a general Dominion election
at an early day, basing its belief on
tbe good times. Trade is notivc, it
snid; the crops good, revenue buoyant, industries flourishing, and cupi-
tal eagerly seeking investment. These,
says The Columbian, ure "telling admissions,'' considering the Liberals arc
in power at Ottawa. They could only
bo "telling admissions" provided the
good crops and good times generally
were direotly and wholly due to Libera! administration ; otherwise they
are a simple statement of conditions
that exist iu Canada in (oininon with
the rest of the world. But the deliei-
ously innocent Columbian believes that
tbey are all due to its politicol friends
at Ottawa. It would he brutal to disturb a faith like that,
We greatly fear The Columbian
going to the bad. The other day it
permitted itself to get into a temper
and bitterly reproached the "Turner
regime" for imposing thut million dollar luxury, tbe new Government buildings at Victoria, upon a Province
"that sadly needed tho money" for
public necessaries of one kind and another. Yet it could smile blandly and
rub its hands with gleeful satisfaction
over Mr. Cotton's proposal to give a
million in aid of a Pacific cable,
which in a Provincial sense was
neither a luxury uor a necessary, but n
bit of unqualified, unredeemed extravagance. We do not know what is coming over Tbe Columbian. It used to
exude integrity at every pore, but now
it seems to be without even an apology for a conscience. Is it association
with the Semlin crowd that is so de
moralising it?
Those wbo follow the great trial at
Rennes and marvel at the extraordinary nature of it will have a better
comprehension of all it signifies if they
understand that it is not Dreyfus who
is ou trial, but the Army—the Army
as represented by the Merciers, the
Paty de Clains, aud other military
traitors, intriguers, and dupes who began with n crime and have committed
hundreds of others in the attempt to
cover it up. Dreyfus was intended to
bo the victim through whom they
would all esc pe. At Rennes the great
struggle is to prove the Army innocent, and to do this guilt must be fastened olsowhere, whether by perjury,
forgery, and other orimes, matters little to men who are desperate.
Tbe Canadian Premier has a good
deal of work cut out for him during
the next two or ihiee. months, according to the dispatohes. He is to make
a stumping tour through Ontario; he
is to go to London on the Alaskan
bouudary question ; he is to assist at
some elaborate function in Chicago
in commotion with the laying of the
foundation stone of a large public

Mr. Martin on the plea that it has not

with whose praci'oe in such things he
is most familiar. In oae sense it wonld

The Weather Braced Up aud the Sights
Were Taken In.
The visit of the Canadian Press Association to Nelsou had a beneficial
effect on the weather. After rain for
several days at a stretch the suu again
became in evidence on Sunday and except for ono innocent little shower in
the late afternoon the day was very
pleasant. Nearly all the members of
the party attended church in the morn
ing and later in the day visited tbe
smelter where they were hospitably
received by the management and
shown all the interesting points of the
big institution. The afternoon was
spent quietly, most of the ladies uud
gentlemen accompanying c'elson
friends on walks in different parts of
tbe City. A large number of citizeus
went down to the boat which left at
10:80 for East Kootenay. After the au
revoirs were spoken "Auld Lang
Syne" was sunn by both excurtionists
and citizens, the former crowding to
tlie how of the Moyie and the latter
standing iu u group on tbe wharf.
Then the quietness of the Sunday
night wus broken by the hearty cheers
of both parties as the boat pulled ont.
The delay yesterday at Fernie will be

Every member of the party was loud
iu his or her praises of tbe reception
given by the citizens of Nelsou. The
banquet was a grent surprise to them,
the presentation of the boxes of classified ore samples was a very pleasiug
incident and the thoughtfulness of
Messrs. H. J. Evans & Co., iu presenting each iady of the party with a handsome nnd costly souvenit spoon filled
tho visitors' cup of enjoyment to the
brim, in no city along the route did
tbo members of the party receive such
a characteristic souvenir im the ono of
nre speoimens and whatever idea tbey
may bave had of it before they certainly think now that Nelson is very
much of a mining town.
Mr. Dingman, the president of the
Association, in conversation with
Miner reporter before the boat left
said : "I must say—and I say it sincerely and with a very pleasing reool
lection of the kindness with which
we have been received all along the
line—that nowhere since we left home
have w e beeu so charmingly entertain
ed as we have in Nelson The banquet
v, ..s the most brilliant affair of the

the ore souvenir is by long odds the
most thougbtul present we have received. The whole reception here was
simply perfect and before leaving
your beautiful and busy City I must
thank its citizens again, ou behalf of
all ihe membetrs of tho Association.
We will not soon forget you."

the above head will found a loading
artice referring to the latest report of
iho Medical Superintendent of the Hospital for the Intone at Westminster.
With reference to Nelson as a site for
a new buiding, your city has a strong
claim by virtue of situation. Seeing
tbat tho insane cases are increasing so
rapidly it is of the greatetst importance at due attention be given by tbe
Government to the cum of tbe our-
able cases. Dr. Ernest A. Hall now of
Toronto hus stated tbat a large percentage of the present so-oalled incurable
cases can be cured and he has so far
been successful in testoring to souud
mind and tody n number of female
patients from Victoria. Although such
cures must have been known to Dr,
McKechnie P. O. he stated during the
last silting of the Legislature that
(hero was not a man in the Province
of British Columbia capable to take
the position at the Asylum in Westminster about to be filled.
It is to be regretted that Dr. E. H.
Hall should have been passed over
after all his years of labor and fighting
before he was successful in gaining
admission to the hospital aud to obtain
tbo assistance of some medical men
to assist in the treatmont of the first
cases. As further evideuce us to the
value of the statement above reforred I
to by the learned President of the
Council, Dr. Ho 11 bus since beeu
awarded the prize for his eBsay on insanity rend before representative medical men of '.ho Dominion of Canada. If

Tho Suspected   Burglar Before Magistrate Crease Yesterday.

si ild a revolver but where he got it or
to whom ho sold it ho will not say.
Tbo police have evidence that be attempted to sell one on the night the
window of tho Nelson Hardwa e Company was relieved of fourteen valuable revolvers. The prisoner's refusal
to account for having one in his possession and also to tell where he was
on the night of the robbery indicate
that he was mixed nn with the burglary. He is discreetly saying nothing nnd the police are experiencing
considerable difficulty in getting evidence of a satisfactory nature. How-
c\er the chief is working on several
clues that may bring out pnrt of the
iiuth. As yet none of the stolen revolvers hnve been discovered. It is
not considered that another man arrested on suspicion and held on a
charge jof vagrancy knows anything
about the burglars.

The committee of the Nelson Cricket
(18.) To form, promote, and estal> Clob held a meeting yesterday when a
Iisili any companies for any purposes team was chosen to represent Nelson
which may seem, directly or indi- against Ymir on Labor Day (Monday,
rectly, calculated to benefit this  Com-. Sept. 4.) NELSON WEEKLY MINER, FRIDAY,  SEPTEMBER i, 1899
A Large Number of Citizens Greeted tbe
Visitors at tbe Opera House
in the livening.
The advent of the Canadian PresF
Association has excited censideralbe interest in tbis town. That the pressmen
themselves reciprocate this feeling is
evident from the large aud influential
body of representatives that arrived
last night, by fur the largest that has
ever yet visited Nelson. Some of the
members of tbe committee who have
.been chosen to entertain the visitors
went down to Robson yesterday to
meet them. These consisted of the
Mayor, Alderman Beer and Messrs.
Lay, Jowett aud Huston.
Upon the arrival of the steamer at
Robson nfter the usual courtesies of
greeting were exchanged n light repast.
of tea and sandwiches was partakon
of and then the train took them on to
Boiiuingb-in Falls. Here a halt was
made to enable them to inspect the
powerhouse and machinery. Although
tbe shades of evening had fallen before the party arrived there yet the
glorious fulls could hardly have beeu
Been to better advantage*. The pale
twilight was brightened by the white
masses of foam and the grey,low hanging banks of mist on the dark green
hills formed a fitting background to
the perfect scene. The wouners of
electricity paled before tho iinpressivH
marvel of JS'ature aud there wero few
who failed to rightly appreciate the
magnificent panorama they witnessed.
The twilight hnd set in before the
party wended their steps from tho
Falls back to the oars. Nelson was
reached shortly before 8 o'clock. The
visitors spoke in the warmest terms of
the reception they had received in the
sister oity'of Rossland, As they were
coming down the Arrow Lakes the
president and secretary of the Association and the 0. P R. representative
were presented with addresses und souvenirs.
It was shortly nfter 9 o'clock wheu
one hundred and fifty ladies and gentlemen seated themselves at the tables
in the Opera House. The ladies who
attended to the decorations of the tables hnd done their work splendidly and
the result was that the tables presented a beautiful si^ht. It was a cold
dinner and tbe difforeut dishes admitted of tasty decoartious which were
availed of. The interior of the otherwise desolate looking Opera House
was tastily d-corated with flags.bnnt-
iii3 and Chinese lanterns, until at presented u very pleusing effect. The
Mayor was seuted at the head of the
table which run alon; the front of the
stage and from it three other tables ran
towurds tho entrance of tho house.
It was the first attempt of the management of the Wuverly Hotel to st t u first
class supper and the success of this first
attempt was certainly decided. Mr.
Prosser prepared a meal that would
do credit to any City in Canada and
the warm words of praise expressed by
the visitors showed thut they thoroughly appreciated it. The service,
too, was of the very best.
Herr Steiner's Orchestra supplied
the music. They were most diligent
during the time that the good things
were being discussed and later played
appropriate airs for the different
toasts. When the inner man had been
attended to, the Mayor proposed the
toast of the Queen. This waB drunk
aB enthusiastically ns loyal subjects of
Her Majesty might be expected to
drink it. Following it came the toast
to the Canadian Pnrliamemnts. Dr.
Forin proposed this toast in a very
happy spoech in which he referred to
the political situation iu Ontario aud
British Columbia in a very entertain
ing manner. Colonel Mntheson wub
the first to respond to this toast. Ool
Mathesou is a very able speaker and
bis every remark was listened to with
wrapped attention, He said that the
City of Nelson had tendered a more
hearty welcome to the Oanudinn Press
Aassociaiton than any other city in
the Province. The trip would be of the
greatest advantage to the excursionists
aB it would show tnem that there was
a mighty Province in the Dominion
that only nwaited development British Columbia waB a Province of vast
resources The Parliaments had neglected this part of the country and he
was sure that the papers of the East
would now urge upon the authorities
to give it the attention it deserved.
Mr. Graham auother member of the
Ontario Legislature followed Col.
Mntheson. He said that the Canadian
system of Government was the great
est system on earth. He paid an eloquent tribute to the different Houses
of Parliament and before be finished
he expressed the pleasure he had derived from the genial hospitality of
the Nelson people.
Mr. D. j. Beaton, in a neat speech,
proposed the health of the Canadian
Press Association. Tbis was responded to by Mr. Dingman who thanked
the proposer for his kind words and
the citizens of Nelson for their more
than kind reception. Mr. Gardiner
next responded to tlu toast. He was
rery happy in his remarks concerning
the Hamilton Mountain as compared
with some of the lofty peaks he had
seen in the west. He is a fluent
speaker and made a distinct impression on bis hearers Mr. 0 Beirre, of
Stratford, Ont, followed. Then
came Secretary Cooper, Mr. Burk and
Mr. Pierie. All mudo very accept
able speeches. Mr. Pirie has the
repntaiion of being one of the best nfter dinner speakers in Canada. He
was uot up to bis usual mark last
night but certainly made tbe most
hnmorous speech of the evening. He
too, had a sneaking regard for the little
papr which he runs "down East" but
he found tbat the mountains grew on
him. In fact he wus covered with
Mr. PenBe, tbe proprietor of thnt
sterling grit paper, the Kingston
Whig, then proposed the toast to the
Oity of Nelson. While he was talking
it dawned upon those present that
the visitors had several very fine
speakers amongst them. Mr. Pense's
speech was one of the beBt delivered
during the evening. That tbe toast
was heatily drunk goes withont flaying. The members of tho association
stood iu their places nnd gave throe
very hearty cheers for tbo citizens.
Mayor Neelauds, Aid. McKillop's and
J. Roderick Robertson's names were
connected with the toaBt. Each made
a suitable response. Nelson's speakers
did wish to fill the visitors full of a
whole lot of facts concerning the City
but left this to the visitors themselves
to imbibe today. Noxt came the in-
evitabe toaBt to the ladies To Mr.
Crease was entrusted this important
toast—made doubly important by the
attendance of a host of charming
ladies. Ho proved himself a master of
the art of Biying a great deal and at
the same time nothingjabout the members of the fair sex. To the equally important duty of responding , to this
toast were assigned Messrs. Green,
Grant and Walker. Each aoquittad
himself in a highly gallant manner.
Then a 11 joined hands and "Auld
Lang Syne" raug out with a toucli of
feeilug to it thnt meant that there was
a mutual pleasure in the preseuoe of
tho press men among the citizeus of
Nolson. The visitors gathered up tho
boxes of ore, the map and pamphlet
and the very neat souvenir spoons (the
latter presented by H. J. Evans & Co )
tucked them under tbeir arms, ex
pressed themselves as highly pleased
with the evening aud wended their
way to thoir hotels. Today they will
be in the bands of their personal
friends, and tonight at 10:80 they leave
for home via tho Crow's Nest Pass

This new vein carries ore exatly similar to the parallel vein in  No. 2.

leaahes Nelson ou the evening of September 1, after visiting Rossland
and other places so as to gradually
work their way up to a full appreciation of all Nelson has to offer. On
Tuesday and Wednesday, Sept. 12 and

be the guest of the Nelson local committee. They will leave on the morning of the 14th for Slocan points, and
on the 16th, as the guests of the Knslo

prominent silver-lead miues and works
on the Kaslo & Slocan Railway. Un
the morning of the 10th they return to
Nelson aim will spend two days here,
leaving for East Kooteuay on the night
of the 17th. (Sunday). They will
spend more time iu Nelson than in any
oiher point in their journey.
While here tbe members of the Institute will pay n visit to the Hall Mines

During the month of August so far
80 tons of crude ore have been shipped
and 40 tons of concentrates. The mill
hus not run at all since July 22, so that
this month will be a blank as regards
bullion saved on plates.
The following is the ofllcial return
from the Hall Mines smeller for a period of 22 days and 20 hours ending
August 4. Five thousand and eighty-
three tons of Silver King ore from tho
company's mine and 71 tous of parr
chased ore weie smelted, containing
(approximately) from Silver King
ore, 81 tons copper, 55,800 ounces silver, 121 ounces gold ; from purchased
ore, seven Ions copper, 1430 ounces of
silver, 85 ounces gold.
News has been received that the
long crosscut tuuue1 being driven on
tli« Ranibler-Curiboo mine has reached
the main ledge. The stock of this
mine bus jumped from 32 to 40. The
meaning of this is that the new tunnel
opens the vein at a point 105 feet below any of tbe other workings, thus
blocking out an immense body of ore.
A big strike of nickel ore is reported
to have beeu made on the Grace Dore
claim in the Fort Steele distiict
An average sample across the whole
four feet of vein matter went 12.15
percent nickel, valued at 185.05.

Mr, E. G. Thurston has bonded the
Viking, Crescent and Mascot claims iu
the Tracy Oreek basin, Fort Steele district.
The Emerald mine on Alki
Oreek, St. Mary's District, has
been bonded by Mr. E. J. Walsh for
$20,000. There is a 12 foot lead of copper and galena ore on this property
running high iu Vrilue.
Mr. R. R. Bruce of Nelson is now
ill the Windermere camp. He has a
force of 20 men working on the Sitting Bull group on Boulder Creek,
whioh he bonded last year.
Mr. Turner, bnt some irresponsible individuals among the rest will hold
out for Mr. Houston and so there will
be some great old wirepulling before
tbe nomination is finally made. The
public, however, will not likely take
any interest in the fight as neither Mr.
Turner nor Mr. Houston, would stand
the ghost of a show of ejection.
The subject of Mr. Turner'ss uoces-
sor is also a fruitful subject of discussion on the street. The name of Mr
W. A. Jowett at once suggested itself
to everyone, aud it is considered that
that gentleman will make a strong bid
for the vacant office. Mr. Jowett lost
a friend at conrt when Mr. Joseph Martin concluded his feat of committing
political suicide. The name of Luther
Lennox is also mentioned iu connection with the vacancy. His friends
think ihat as he did not get the regis-
tr.irship he has something coming fiom
the Government.
But the one man that haa the refusal
of the position is Mr John Ayton Gibson, ot the Phair Hotel.
Mr. Uibson always has beeu a
staunch support*! uud valuable friend
of the present Government. He,enjoys
tbe confidence of tho people at Victoria
nnd tbe respect nnd esteem of the people of Nelson. He bns a qualification
thut is not always taken into consideration when political appointments
are being miule and that is that ho is
thoroughly ' conip.itent to till the position, lie uow hns the offer under con-
sideriuion, aud it will ii.it be surpris

Mr. Hume and Mr. Cartel-Cotton are
expected to arrive in Nelsou today
and they will probably settle tne matter. Mr Hume's committee is practi
cally unanimous for Mr. Gibson.

Considerable   Excitement   Canard   on
the Streets Lust Night.
There bus been a feeling iu tho City
that the gang of burglars operating
iu the Citv would use the fourteen revolvers and ammunition stolen from
the Nelson Hardware Company for the
purpose of holding people up. Oolor
seemed to be lent lo this theory last
night about midnight vhen piercing
shrieks of a woman attracted the attention of the few people on the streets
Chief Jarvia happened to be in hearing aud made his way quickly fo the
spot from whence the Bounds cume and
found i, woman lying in the ditch. It
was quite close to the City Hall. She
claimed to have been struck and robbed of her purse containing, $17, but, after being taken into the lockup and
iis-nred by the chief that there was uo
danger she cooled off and seemed to
forget that she had lost any money
She did not look like a woman who
would havo a purse containing $17.
However, a man wbo was passing
saw Bomo one nppioach the woman and
disappear just after the shouting com
menced. It wus an extremely dark
night aud it would have been no trouble for anyone to escape had he really
robbed tbo woman.
The probabilities are, however, that
there was no hold up. No one would
be liable to select the close viciuity of
the goal to commit such a deed.
The offloial icturns from the Ymir
mine for Jnly are us follows: Bullion
from plates, $14,000; concentrates,
$6,250; crude ore shipped (carbonate
ore, 40 tons, galena, 22 tons); estimated valne, $4,000. This makes a
total of $24,250 from 21 days working,
the accident to the crushing machinery
having made a short working month.
It will be seen by a comparison with
the returns from preceding months that
the values saved are steadily increasing. The total values saved in tho
mill were over $13 per ton, and the
gross returns over  1,000 per day.    The
