A Well Contested Game and
Ideal Weather-
Nelson Wins By Fifteen to Seven���A Pleas-
sant Game���The Rosslanders
Wero   Hospitable"
This, tho first Rugby match iu
Kootenay, was played in Kosslund
on Saturday in ideal weather. The
game took place on the Black Bear
ground before quite a number of spectators, who evinced considerable enthusiasm during its progress. As the
gams was an initial one old footballers
knew it was useless to speculate as to
the resnlt. Both teams continued tho
names of several players well known in
the football annals of tlie Paciiic coast
of British Colombia, augmented by
recent urri"ttls from the mother country. So far as training and condition
were concerned uoi th,!'sido had any
advantage as the match was arranged
ou somewhat short notice, aud facilities for practice aro limned iu both
The teams faced each othor shortly
after 2 :30, the Kossland captain having won the toss. The visitors pressed
the home team but Tait, an old Midland county three-quartor buck, did
grand work for Rossland, who gradually worked the ball up to the Nelson
26, from which it was eventually
rushed over the goal line aud a try obtained. The place kick at goal was
After tbo kick opt the Nelson backs
were conspicuous for some good pursing, but they coujd not get past the
opposing three-quarters. Eventually
Tjtit of Rossland managed to obtain a
successful drop kick at goal. A splendid nisli of tho Nelson forwards
headed by Hector Sproat enabled that
veteran forward to secure a try wliich
was not converted. When the whistle
Hounded for half time the score stood :
Kossland, 7 points; Nelson,   :i   points.
Before resuming Capt. Haines of
Nelson decided to slightly alter the
position of his men, by taking Macrae
ont of tbe scrum and placing bim iu
the three-quarter division, a courso
which was justified by after events.
During the second half Nelson had
the better of the game, continually
foroing Kossland to thoir 25. Haines
scored a try, but the kick was difficult
and waa not oonvcrted. Later on Tod
dropped a neat goal. Rossluud made a
determined effort to equalize, hut Macrae again secured tho ball, and eluding the entire back division of Rossland, touched down directly behind
the goal. The kiok was again entrust
ed to Tod who sent the ball neatly
over the bnr. Shortly afterwards timo
was called. Score, Nelson, 15 points;
Rossluud, 7.
Considering the limited extent of
the ground and the fact thut neither
toam had ever played together before
the game was interesting from start
to finish. Nelson had nearly always
the bettor of the scrum, aud at times
tho baoks displayed good combination.
Haines at half played a great game
never sparing himsolf nud he was
well supported by Blest. Tod, Macrae
and Williams played well ut three-
quarters, whilo Sprout, Siirgennt and
Hodge wore perhaps the most brilliaut
of a hard  working  set  of  forwards.
��<U Rossland Tait at the three quarters played a sterling gamo and was
well booked np by Grogan and Beeches,
The veteran Oowper-Coles was always to the fore on tho forwards.
After the match the best of feeling
prevailed between the two teams Ross-
lnnd sparing uo effort to entertain
their visitors.

play a return mutch in Nelson next

An Important Decision Given by Mr.
Justice Martin.
Decision in the last of the arguments urged for striking out the petitions iu the protests against Messrs,
Builer, Duusmuir, Pooley aud Bry-
den nnd McPhillips, was givon Thursday at. Victoria hy Mr. Justice Mar-
tiu. His lordship agreed with the contention of Mr. Duff, who onposed Mr.
Oussdiy's motion, that under section (IB
of the election act of 1888, which empowers the judgo of tbe supreme court
to make rules for tho effectual carrying
out of tho net and tho object and intention thereof, the rule of August,
18114, was valid. This rale gave Ihe
senior puisne judge tho right, during the vacation of the office of the
chief justice, to appoint the prescribed master. Tbe effect of this is that
Mr. Drake's appointment us master
hy Mr. Justice Walkem is u valid oue.
The motion, therefore, to striko out
the petition against Bullen, which
was the test case, was dismissed. The
trial of the election case protest of
Jardine vs. Bullen conies up today
af Victoria before Mr. Justice Druke
aud it is understood that a great army
of witnesses, numbering 00 or more
have beeu subpooued.
Cooking   Lessons    Fov    Ladies���The
New Public Library.
A meeting of the National Couuoil
of Women wus held on Saturday afternoon in the lecture room of the Presbyterian church, and several Indies
reported ns to the success Ihey had
had in getting names for the couk-
iui' lesions which iye to he held in
Nelson. -July 20 names have been
secured, which aro uot enough to
make the venture n financial success,
but after some discussion it wus decided to go on with the plan inthe
hope tlmt other names will be obtained. It is earnestly hoped thnt ninny
more will take advantage of this unique opportunity of being initiated
into the mysteries of the culinary art,
ns nil profits will go to the fund for
the establishment of a public library,
w Inch is urgently   needed in Nelsou.
Tbe committee then discussed the
library question, and it was decided
to try to get a committee of gentlemen to take the matter up, and
give it the benefit of- thai** iuflueuco
and experience. As the gentlemen
named hud not been previously consulted tbeir names are not published
here, but it may be stated thnt the
proposed committee consists of representatives of the municipal authorities, bankers, professional and business men of the city.

The special sittiings of the supreme
court which have been in progress iu
Rossland since Oct. 4, closed yesterday, and Mr. Justice Walkem will

One of of the longest actions tried
wus the Nelson case of tho bank of
Montreal vs. Wilsou. The case consisted of 14 distinct claims, and was
very complicated. It involved the
���ale of time checks in connection with
the buildiug of the old Trail creek
tramway, now known as the Columbian & Westoru railway. The judge
deferred his decision until he could
hear the evidouco of F. P. Gutolius,

There Will Be no Suspension of Penalty

Puris, 21).���The decision of the
court textmilly, is us follows: In
view of the letter of the minister of
justice, dated Sept. 20, 1808, iu
view of tho nrgnments of the punlic
prosecutor denouncing to the court the
condemnation pronounced by the first
court martial of the military government of Paris ou December 22, 1890,
against Alfred Dreyfus then a captaiu
of artillery attached to the general
stuff; in view of the documents iu
the ense, and also of articles 44!j to
���140 of the code of the criminnl procedure, amended by Ihe law of June 1,
1805, relative to the advisability of nn
application in proper form for revision. Whercus the matter has been
brought before the court by the public prosecutor iu virtue of thi express
ordor of the minister   of justice.
Whereas.the application comes within tbe cutegory uf the cases contemplated in article 8 nnd has been introduced within the period fixed by
article 444.
Whereas, tho judgment, a revision Of which is demanded has been in
foroe as n "chose jugee"
Whereas the documents producod do
uot placo Ihe court iu a position to decide all the merits of tbe case and
there is ground for making a. supple,
moutury inquiry,
For these reasons, the court declares
tho application to bo iu proper form
and legally admissible, nnd slates thnt
it will institute complementary inquiry uud declnres tbore is uo grouud
nt Ihe present moment for deciding
on the public prosecutor's npplicntion
for a suspension of the penalty."
The judgos of the court were occupied for three hours und a half iu considering the judgment. The publio,
whose admission to the court wns
rcguluted with the greatest care, uwnit-
ed the decision with marked calmness.
During the suspension of business
tho publio crowded into the lobbies
nud there was evident anxiety to hear
the result. There was no demonstration when the court rose.
Londou, Oct. 29.���An article iu the
National Review written by J.
Maxse, who bus previously showu himself to be woll informed in the Dreyfus
nffnir, hns caused some stir. He
nflirms thnt tho ozar is now become
convinced of Dreyfus' innocence nnd

Turbulent Chinese Troops iu the  City

London, Oct. 20.���News received
this weok from tho far oast has been
of a somo whnt disquieting nature. It
appears thnt tho residents of Cnnton
are iu a stato of alarm at the draft
going into that city of lnrgo bodies of
Chinese troops, us a counter poison to
the recent arrival of guards for tho foreign legations. Tho native soldiers

It is Believed That Marchand Beceived i
Hint to Leave Fashoda and That
He Will Not Beturn.
It is Auuouuced That the Powers Will
Send Delogntes to tho Confercnoe.
Loudon, Oct. 29.���It is announced
from St. Petersburg that all the powers
havo uow accepted tho czar's invitation to soud delegates to the proposed
disarmament conference. Each power
will be represented by three delegates
and it will be n record diplomatic assembly iu point of numbers. Count
Mouravieff, the Russinn minister of foreign affairs, is going to Livudio, where
bo will confer with tho czar ou tho
outlines of the programme which
will be submitted to the delegates of
the powers. The Russia�� minister is

is drawn up in the regular form of
the universal postal union.
London, Oct. 29.���Tho arrival of
Major Marchand nt Khartoum, ou
his way to Cairo with tho portion of
his roport which wus uot finished
when Oapt, Bnrutier left Fashoda, is
regarded us a rift in the clouds over-
h tinging Anglo-French relations, for
iu spite of the semi-officiul denial issued in Paris thut orders were sont to
the major to go to Cuiro, it is fully
believed bere that the French otllcor
would not be ou his way to Curio unless he had received n hint to that
effect from the French government,who
cousider thnt his leaving Fashoda will
take the sting out of the situation
nnd at the samo time prepare France
for the eventual withdrawal of the
whole expedition, which now consists
of seven * officers aud 120 men. Tho
British view of the latt st. move is thut
the Marquis oi Salisbury and bis ministers are delighted to afford Major
Marchand facilities for reaching Cairn.
but thoy would hurdly cure to send
him back excepting on the cupaoity
of guest or scientific explorer; that is
to say, that France would first hnve
to renounce ull political claims based
on his mission. In the meantime ou
the voluntary return nf Major Murch-
uud, the French minister of foroigu
utfuirs M. Delcasse, uud the goveru
ment of Frnnco have got over n ares
difficulty from u diplomatic, lnmom
propre.poiut of view. M. Delcasse had
declared tho Frcnoh government could
not do tho impossible, thnt is to sny
recnll Mnjor Marchand ; therefore, the
latter's return hus enabled tho French
government to "change face", as tho
saying goes. It is recognized, however, that even if tho tri-color of
Frauce is hauled down nt Fnshodn,
tho uiniu subject of dispute remains
aud may causo ai.xious moments in
both countries before loug.
The Bnhr-El-Gnhzal question ' is
settled aud there has beon u confident
feeling for the last few days that war
will bo avoided. Tho Frcnoh ministerial crisis nt first iucrensed the feeling of nuxiety which prevnilod ns
to tho prospects of a peaceful solution,
but in the list of probnblo now ministers the British newspupers see n body
of experienced nnd capable men wbo
nre nhle to lend French opinion. The
retention of M. Delcasse at tho head
of the ministry of foreign affairs, however, is not regarded favorably, us ho
is the father of the so-culled Marchand
adventure. Tho French newspapers
seem to havo little faith in Russia
helping ber ally in the present* crisis,
whilo Russian despatches to tho British papers affirm positively that tbe
czar is decidedly opposed to war and
has counselled the French government
to abnndon its untenable attitude. It
is even said tbe czar has characterized
the French attitude ns reckless. Iu
the meanwhile, military nnd naval
preparations continue on both sides of
tho channel. There was talk at Dev
oiiport today of u flying squadron he.
ing commissioned, but a reassuring
feature is tho departure of Sir William Whito. the director of naval con
struct inn for thu British navy, on a
two months visit to Egypt. No cx-
tioino measures, therefore, are expect
od by the admiralty officials at the
present moment nt nil events.
Mr. George Wyndhnm. conservative
member of parliament for Dover,
speaking to liis constituents, has made
a compnrisou between British and
Americau aims. Ho said in Egypt we
were actuated by the very sentiments
which actuated America in' the recent
war. In the case of the Philippine
islands, Americans could not tolerate
the situation there and having undertaken the task she objected to being
hamperod by Goriunny, und so mnde
it pluiu. thut since sho is engaged on
n laudable enterprise in a sphere in
which another power felt itself called
upon to meddlo, she must have a froo
hand to bring it to a successful issue.
That is precisely Iho position of tho
British in the bnsin of Upper Nile.

of German newspapers express the
opinion thnt emperor Willium's trip
will yield litllo tuugible good but will
create much jealousy upon the pnrt of
the Interested powers, who will endeavor to destroy any Germnn projects
in Asia Minor. Tho German comic
papers are ulso poking fun nt the emperor nnd tbe uew crusnde is leading
in some cases to prosecutions on the
charge of leso majesto. The polico
confiscated the last number of Siinpli-
cissini owing to its compilation of a
poem entitled "In tbo Holy Land,"
ironically congratulating Palestino
ou receiving such august visitors and
saying Golgotha will bo ablo to boast
uoi only of hearing tho last words
from tho cross, but tho first of Emperor William's. Tho Gorman newspaper correspondents with the Emperor
William highly praiso the lavish hos-
pitnlity of tbo Sultnn of Turkey which
however, bus crented intense dissatisfaction among the Turks. Placards
hnve been posted on tho mosques aud
iu the streets of Stamboul denouue-
ing lliu extraordinary sums spent ou
the emperor, which money, it is further pointed out, comes out of Moham-
luedall pockets.
It is said thut the Sultan offerod to
present Emperor William on tho occasion of the latter's arrival nt Jerusalem, with the famous "Chamber of
the last, supper" hut that tho German
emperor thanked the Sultnn nnd declined the proposal on the ground that
the building also contained Turkish
religious relics. The emperor, it is further asserted, will got sumo other
valuable present instead.
Another roport snys tho Sultan insisted upou paying thn exponsen of
the emperor's tour out of his own private purse. Tbe German newspapers
iu asking for u denial of this report
declare thnt whilo tho emperor wns

Now thc information conies that he is
nt Ooueva, and that he has raised a
large sum of money for some purpose.
It is romarknblo thnt army intrigues
in Franco huvo become bolder within
the past fow months. There has heen
a tendency on thc pnrt of the military loaders to supercede tho civil authorities and they have over-ridden the
civil authority in tho case of Picquart.
There aro rumors, too, of plots in
whioh the Josuits figure, to completely
ovorturu the republic aud declare n
military dictatorship. That such a
plot wns afoot and failed of execution
because of the discovery of a suspicious
letter to General Zurliuden, commandant of Paris, was denied, but the
Times oxprosses the opinion that there
was gootl evideuco that such a plot
was afoot, nnd tho Times would not
put forth nn utterance nf thnt kind if
there wus no foundation for it.
How fur aro these strange und ominous occurrences to Franoe traceable
to the intrigues of those who wish to
substitute Bouapartist rule for that of
the republic? Geneva is not so distant from Paris thut it would not bo n
convenient pluce from which to foment n revolution, nor loo remote us
tho waiting placu of the ohief conspirator in the game of winning an empire. Tho Bonapurtes iu the past
were adopts at coups d'etat and if
family traits bo strong in this young
mun, ho, too, must bo a proficient iu
the art. Tho fact Hint ho hus raised
a large sum of money is un indication
that thero is something unlownrd
afoot. What* can u colonel of Russinn artillery need Hint he should raise
a large loan ou speciul  security*'   Was
it with tho intention of buying ihose
in position in France whom [lu uld
uot win hy persuasion? However,
the secret must come out liefore long,
nnd it would in no wny he surprising
to thoso who hnvo watched events to
seo Prince Louis Bonaparte enter
France, pluce himself ut tho head of
tho army und seize the power thnt his
great uucle ulovcd so and so grossly-
If this prince he llie man the world
is looking for, the man who will head
tho foroos of evil, thon destiny hus
cast him tor oue of tho most melancholy roles that over it wus the lot of
man to play. With his accession to
empire should ho achieve it, we may
look for troublous times such as tho
world has uover Been, of widespread
and bloody war affecting every nation
on the globe.
may ho ours. The party press, that
is the party-first-of-all press, tho "are
ye wid us or agin us" liberal nnd
conservative papers thut are always
looking for a fight, proceed on the
assumption that ;i sacred duty impels
them to combat by every menus in
their power nny nssortion mnde hy the
other side without regnrd to its truth.
Therefore wo have the spectacle presented to us of a press which should
he about more conimeudublo business,
uetuullly defending grout public
wrongs against criticism nud the i s-
snults of those who know them to be
wrongs uud seek to sweep theni
away, A politioan is acoused of conduct unbecoming an [oflice holder nml
a gentleman nnd immediately the
press of the purty to which the poli-
ioian belongs hastens to repel the accusation, without making any enquiry
whatever ns to the truth or fulsity
of the cliurge. Tho system of ethics
which is supposed to govern our actons is framed nfter and founded upon
tho toachings of men of old, whether
divinely   inspired or not it is not  our
provinoe  to   determine,   They have
long been regarded us the fouutuin
head of wisdom as to what is seemly
und righteous in human action aud
among othor things thoy taught that
wo must not justify tlio wicked for reward. Yet this is what the partisan
press does continually whenever an
effort in made to bring an offender to
account. Wc have it upon the highest
authority that it is good to hide the
fault of our friend, but wc nro nowhere told thnt when tbo faults of that
friend become so glaringly offensive
that they call for public reprimand or
punishment thai.*} it is good for us to
riso up and vehemently protest that he
is entirely without fault, nnd thut
whoever says that he is not is n fnlsi-
lier nnd a scoundrel. Yet' those nro
the taotios of the party press.
If u yellow dog belonging in tho
entourage of a politician should he accused of boing too yellow, tho press of
the purty to which the politician nnd
yellow dog belonged coultl be depended
upon to como valiantly to the defence ; to indignantly protest thnt the
tlog wns not nearly so yellow us the
green eyes of hatred pictured bim ; to
aver thnt those gross chnrges against
the complexion of tho dog wore instigated by those who wanted tho dog's
position ns yellow heeler to the politician ; to proclaim with glaring eyo
tlint this wns n cowardly and huso ut-
tuck upon tho government with tho
tlog ns a vehicle ami to solemnly demand that, tbo miscreants   who had so
foully aspersed the huo of  the dog
should produce proofs of their chnrges
or stund forever condemned ns despicable viliflcrs.
When men consider such vagaries of
minds diseased by over-iudulgenco iu
pnrtyisin, is it nny wonder tlint* their
belief in thu truth, the fuirnoss, lie
honesty of thc press is shaken? And
is il surprising that a press running to
absurd lengths of deolnmation in defense of ils party, right or wrong,
should find that it is losing or has
lost its grasp upon public utloiition
nnd permanently impaired the power to
sway tho opinions of men il i ncc po.
The Victoria Colonist says, there is
somo truth in The Miner's assertion
that tho intensely partisan churacter
of the purty press has done more thun
anything elso to destroy the power tho
press ouco hnd. We nro glutl that the
Colonist sees even a inotlicmn of truth
in what we fluid, for the Colonist hns
been an offender in this direction and
perhaps the rowurd of those who lend
���the erring into  ways that are straight*
Tho remarkable action of Justice
Wnkem in giving judgment for n defendant company after a jury bad
fouud against it, is certain to excite
widespread comment. His lordship
justilies his action ou thc ground
that tho jury was a subservient one
and did uot tuko into consideration
points of law applying and laid down
aud consequently their verdict wns not
a sound one.
The action was one in which a mun
sued, uuder thu employes liability not,
for damages sustained in a mino, duo
to uileged negligence on the pnrt of
tho compnny owning the proporty.
It is woll known thut jurors in such
cases nro prone lo decide against tho
compnny involved   nnd   few nctioiiB of
that character [fail of substantial damages whenever tho jury is oom posed
of workingmen, becuuse of sympathy
for tho plaintiff. Iu this case, us we
understand it, the jury brought in a
verdict for -funto damages and the
courl recorded it, Iwo days after which
his lordship   gave   judgment   for   the
oompany for the reusous  mentioned,
Should not the procedure, to he legal,
have boon to dismiss tho jury without
accepting their verdict nud to order a
new trial? It strikes us that n jury
oase is a jury caso nud cannot he made
n non jury caso after the evidence hns
heen submitted to tho twelve on]pan
nelled men and a deliverance given
upon that evidenco. Tho jurors wero
sworn to "give a truo verdict according to tho evidencu" and if they vio-
lute their oath tho onus was upon thom.
Justice Walkem8' unusual way of
trusting tho mutter is certain to hegot
protests against his disregard of the
duties of jurors, which, if generally
adopted by the bench, would mean tho
destruction of that sucred right, trial
by jury.

Saturduy evening, und wns voted n
grent success in every wav. The contest botween Miss Simpson und Miss
Agues Campbell for the gold watch
and chain donated by Mr. Jncob Dover, was the feature of the evening.
On counting np tlio votes, which cost
10 cents npieco, it was found that
no less a um thun $11148.50 hnd been
oolleoted bv this means. Of this
amount Miss Campbell's supporters
had contributed 1800,50 nud Miss Simp
sou's $758. Miss Campbell was accordingly adjudged the watch.
The post office created a grout deal
of amusement during the week, und
especiully ou the Inst two nights.

however, wns not on the premises, and
ho accordingly turned it over to n
fair lady on the spot, who doubtless
still cherishes it as n treusured possession.   A prominent and popular locnl
jeweller, too, seemed to stand high iu
tho estimation of the ladies of Nelson,
judging from the size of his mail, It

Browu. It was generally known thai
Mr. Brown was iu Kootenny looking
after zinc ores, but thero hns been
some misapprehension in to lhe objects of his mission, which Mr.
Brown's rare visits to town made it
hard to rectify. Mr. Brown informed
a Miner reporter on Saturday that
though he hnd heen looVint for zinc
hearing oros, yet, contrary to the supposition of many, it was not zinc he
desired to buy. The,fact of the matter was that the company lie represented controlled a new process by
means of wliich silver could bo extracted from zinc just ns ensilv us
from lead. Mr. Brown declined to
describe the process, contenting himself with saying that it wus a smelting process, nnd the flux used was
sulphate of sodium, known to commerce as suit enke. The introduction
of this process will render valuable
hundreds of silver properties which
are now worthless owing to tho pres-
nce of an exoessive nmount of z.uc
in tho ore. For instance ore bearing
fill ounces of silver, 80 per cent lend
and 80 per cent ziuc, can be handled
by the now treat nent so to lenvo tbe
mine owner a handsome profit. The

now a daily capacity of between 850
and -100 tons, a capacity wliich
can he ineroiiscd indefinitely us circumstances may require. There is
practically unlimited capital behind
the schema. Mr. Brown has entered
into several provisional contracts for
large amounts of ore, ami the only
thing that remains lo be settled is the
freight rate. If he cnn obtnin a
reasonable rate, nnd he ht's overy confidence in being unie to do so, the
new industry should attain large proportions. It is tho intention of lhe
company to have the oros sampled ut
the nearest s.impling works, mid the
full value of tlie ores, after deducting
freight und treatment chnrges,
will then be paid in ensh at current
English prices to the mine owners.
This will be n great help to property
owners without much capital, as nt
preseut they have to wait some time
before getting the full returns.

May Get That Ruler Into
The British Will Not Declare a Protectorate
in Egypt, But May Substitute Ma-
liaiiii'il Aii as Khedive.
Loudon, Oct. 80,���The rumor from
Paris of the intention of the British
government to deolare Egypt tinder the
protectorate of Groat Britain has attracted little attention us tin- general
feeling is thnt the moment is clearly
inopportune for such u step. It would
ouly bo playing Into the hands of
France. There is a probability however, of Great Britain adopting ex-
tremo measures towards tbe Khedive
of Egypt unless ho modifies his attitude. It is well known that he returns from eaoh of his visits to European courts filled with sinister ideas
against British tutelage. But every
net of petulauey has been met with
au iron hand. It is asserted; that the
Khedive hus shown no onpaoity for
government and is a mere puppet in
the hands of French Intriguers. Oon-
sequel)tiy it has heen mooted that he
is likely soon to be deposed in favor
of his brother Miiliiimineil Aii, who was
born is JHTii, and who is a brighter
and moro amiable youtii*
Tho plans for the organization of the
newly conquered Boudau, have already
been drawn up and the Egypt government has decided that iho lirst
credit of ��850,000 is to be chiefly devoted to extending ilm railroad to
Khartoum, and organizing a Kiiiiilan
polico forco.
