Paris, Oct. 27.���The court of cassation which is to decide upon the question of re-opening the case of Alfred
Dreyfus, the prisoner of Devil's Island, who is alleged to have been il
legally convicted of selling impor
taut military plnus to agents of n for-
oigu power, opened nt noon today.
The hall wai very full of people but
there was no demonstration around
tho Palace of Justice. The gates,
however, were closed an a matter of
precaution aud ouly ticket holders
were admitted. The few spectators
about the palace were kept moving
by tho police und inside the building
municipal guards were stationed in all
the corridors leading to the court
room. Maitre Labordo, who was counsel for M. Zoln, during the latter's famous trial, was seated among the lawyers occupying the flrst row. Madame Dreyfus, wife of the prisoner,
was provided with u seat iu a corner
She was represented by Maitre
Moruard. The Dreyfus appeal case
was called immediately after the opening of the court. Advocate liard
opened the proceedings by referring to
the excitement and scandals caused by
the case, even before the appeal for a
revision of the triuljwas lodged. He
then reviewed tho history of the case,
f mm Jthe arrest af Dreyfus, cud said
his condemnation was for one of the
crimes wliich inspires universal horror, and it struck ono of those in
whom the country had tho most confidence.
Continuing M. Bard, spoko of tho
efforts mnde to obtain a revision of the
case, referred to the denunciation of
Major Esterhazy and reviowed Madame Dreyfus appeal for a revision
of the case. In doing so M. Bard
said Ihis appeal wus based on the assumption that the Bordeerau was written by Major Esterhazy. He then
pointed ont thut there were suspicious
facts which justify the request for the
revision. Madame Dreyfus contended
that hor husband did not write tho
Bordereau, which all the experts reported he did. Tho court, therefore,
would have to examine these facts and
decide whether a revision was justified.
M. Bard addod that the appeal for a
revision was decided upon in conse-
qutneo of the lato Lieutouant Colonel Henri's confession, that ho hnd
forged a document in tho case, but
M. Bnrd said this forgery was com
mitted in 1896 and could not be alone
regarded as ground for a revision for
on ejectment, ot tho judgement rendered in 1894. Nevertheless, M. Bnrd
then said Lieutenant Colonel Houri
hud committed forgery, his evidence
was tlie most crushing against Dreyfus and, ho continued, the evidence of
a forger is open to suspicion. There
wua, therefore, tho presumption of innocence, based upon this fresh fuct
which led to the appeal for u roviBion
of the caso, and this wus also ground
to uak whether another new fuct hns
not been brought to light and if Dreyfus was really tho author of the Bordereau and note written to Major
Ksterhuzy, and found in the apartment of Mile. Pays, in which the
writer naked what he should do ro-
apceting the Bordereau. M. Burd
next read Colonel Du Puty Clam's ro
port of the arreat of Dreyfus, then a
captain of Hie French artillery doing
staff duty, in which the colonel auid
that Dreyfus, while writing to biB
dictation "betrayed inteiiae excitement. "
"But" M. Bnrd added, amid the
surprise of his henrerB, "photograph
taken of this writing docs not give
the slightest indication that Dreyfus
was laboring uuder excitement, and
Dreyfus," M. Burd, said, "denied to
Ooi. Du Clam, that he ever had relations directly or indirectly with foreign powers. Col. Dn Clam's report
further showed that Dreyfus had to
write incriminating documents in
different ways, sitting nud standing,
with aud without gloves and-with ordinary and broad pointed pons. Later,
M. Bard cited further facts fnvorablo
to the revision   and   expressed   aslon
that if the Bordereau   was the princi
pal   factor   in   the   condemnation   of
Dreyfus  on the testimony of   experts,
his condemnation ought to be revoked.
During the session of the court of
anti-revisionist mob, numbering about
100 people aud headed by M. M. Dru-
mont, Millevoye and Lasios, shouting
'Vive l'armeo" nud "A mort les
juifs," (Denth to tho Jews) attempted
to enter the court of cassation, but
the pnssage of the mob wns barred by
the police and large reinforcements
were sent to guard tlie approaches to
the court.
Great stress was laid by M. Bard on
Colonel Picquart's lettor of July 14,
1898, to the minister of justice, in
which he gave seven principal arguments against, the probability of the
guilt of Dreyfus.Including the impossibility of Dreyfus procuring the plans
of fortresses aud projects for tho
movements of the troops undetected,
whereas, Major Esterhazy had free access thereto. This letter also cites interviews which Col. Picquart had
with Generals Billot and Gonze aud
says: "With the proofs in my bands
I have established the innocence of
To this, General Gonze replied,
according to his letter to the minister
of justice, "What is it to yon if Dreyfus is on Devil's Island?"
Colouol Picquart���" But. he is innocent."
General Gonze���"Youknow Mercier,
(former minister of war) and Saucier,
(former militnry governor of Paris)
are mixed up in this affair. Do you
wish to compromise them?"
Tho letter then continued thnt on
leaving General Gouzo, Colonel Picquart declared ho was convinced of
the innocence of Dreyfus and lie
proposed to fight the matter out and
repeat what he knew. These stato-
mets upon the part of tho advocate
caused a sensation in court.
After further reference to Colonel
Picquart's charges, that tho minister
of war and the general stuff hud tampered with the documents and bad
manufactured evidence iu the Dreyfus
case and a presentation of the contradictory statements of Colonel Picquart
and tho minister of wnr relative to
secret documents snid to have been
communicated to the oonrtmartial, the
hearing of the case was adjourned till
tomorrow. The belief is general tonight that the court of cassation will
pronounce neither for revision, nor
for annulment of the decision in tbe
Droyfus ense, as either course would
entail awkward consequences. To
avoid this it is expected the court
will decide, as the affair now presonts
itself, that there has beon no treason
nud that theroforo the condemnation
pronounced upon- Cnptnin Dreyfus by
tho court martial cannot be upheld.
Loudon, Oct. 28.���Tho Paris corre
spon,lint of the Daily News says :
"The Brisson cabinet was overturned ostouaibly because it failed to
protect tlio army from slander. The
facts are that the ministers constantly

General Chanoine's resignation was
timed to prevent the civil powers
getting hold of tho Dreyfus dossier.
It was calculated that if ho went out,
slamming tho door, tho government

We take pleasure iu pointing out to
our esteemed contemporary the Eossland Miner, which is usually wroug
on most subjects, but occasionally
stumbles on a lucid truth, that the
Nelson Miner never said, suggested,
inferred or supposed that the state of
Washington could impose an export
duty on ore or any other duty, import or export. This journal is well
aware that mere Btates that no
jurisdiction in fiscal matters,
such power boiug vested iu the
administration at Washington,and the
paragraph that the Rossland Miner
quotes from theso columns does not
oonvey nny different meaning. The
saying that "it would not be surprising to find Washington stato going iu
for an export duty ou ore" may convey the idea to dense minds, foriver
afflicted with incurable obtuseuess
not to be eradicted, the impression
thnt the power of Washington state to
impose an export duty is implied, but
if the Bossland Miner will read the
matter over again slowly and carefully
so as to grasp tho meaning of tho
Beutonces. it will see if, it wants to
see, that no such deduction as it indulges in will apply. If wc should
say, as we have frequently said that
British Columbia should go in for
certain imposts does that imply thnt
British Columbia has the power to
impose tho tux? Scarcely. Yet the
polemical soul of the Rossland Miuer
rises an exactly similiar statement.
For capacity and ability in getting
at tho meat of a matter, not the meat
of the Burns monopoly, the Rossland
Miner has wou high distinction and
it is not for us to say a word that
would in any way mar that brilliant
The posiiton of the reigstrar in regard te settlement of accounts for
meals supplied to jurors during the
sitting of the assize court recently,
does uot seem to be woll taken. It
appears so fur as the Miner can learn,
that the judge instructed Iho sheriff
to have the meals prepared for tho
jurors at a certain time and that
the sheriff, as is liis duty, took tho
men to nn adjacent, hotel where the
meals were served. The jury was an
empanelled one and wns part of the
court whether at the hotel during ro-
cess or locked up in the court room.
Had tbe meals been served to them in
the court room the caso would be the
same. These meals ure supposed to be
paid for and the question arises by
whom? Certainly not by the sheriff
who acted under instruction from
tho court. Therefore, the proviuco is
liable and the province will havo to
pay. The judge who presided ut the
sittings of the court will so decide
Bhould tbe matter be submitted to
him. It iB n very trivial affair and it
should have been disposed of at once
without being made a matter for public discussion.
found himself in such a position that
VJry grave consequences hung upon his
decision, his political opponents would
either Btand aloof or indulge in criticism for the purpose of hampering
him and weakening his action. If we
neoded an'instance of these undermining methods of politicians, we bavo
but to look at tho covert opposition
that beset President McKinley in
carrying out tho war witb Spain after
the declaration bad been mnde. Many
efforts were put forth to embarrass
him and now political sentiment
is being agitated against him on the
ground that ho has burdened tbe country with debt. The manly conduct
of Englishmen as shown in tbeir general flupport of the Salisbury policy in
Egypt is a lesson to tho politicians of
the world. There aro times when, in
the public interest, it is ucccssary that
political partios should cohese and
this was such a time. It speaks highly |
for the character of her public men
that Britain should find unanimity of
opinion aud nn unbroken frout just
when sho   needed them.
P. Hill,
To the Editor of The Miner:
Sir:���I notice a paragraph in today's
Miner iu whioh Mr. Simpkins states
that all nccounts which were preseuted
to him in tho proper way had been
paid and that if I had engaged extra
help during the sittings of tbe court
it was my own lookout to seo that
they were paid.
This statement is misleading, during the seven years that I have managed this court, witnesses, jury and
fee business thero bus never been ac-
complaiiit. Tho moment witnesses,
jury, or a special constable was dismissed I paid their fees out of the
money supplied mo by the government
agent for the purpose, but since the
paying of witnesses, jurors, etc., has
beeu handled by Mr. Bimpkins there
has been no end of kicking. Witnesses have been held over, some coming from n distance and when settled
with had to run after him and wait
over for their pay, and accounts like
these referred to which were incurred
by order of the court, and which have
always been paid before,Mr. Simpkine
refused to pay. And if as yonr article
states the government should pay
them Mr. Simpkins is the man who
should have paid them.
The government would certainly not
object. I have received nothing so
far for my services and I am afraid
that it is the registrar's personal ill
feeling toward mf that has prompted
him to do au injustice to men who
should have been paid promptly, to embarrass me in the matter and place the
government in an unenviable position
before the publie.
Yours truly,
Deputy Sheriff.

Nelson, instead of a mining camp,
an up-to-date city, with every evidence of prosperity and progress. He
also spoke iu flattering terms of the

In marked coinnim   to -what
be tlio cubo in tliis oountry tinder similar circumstances,   is  the conduct  of
the Btatosmau  and  prominent   politicians in Great Britain regarding Lord
Salisbury's position regarding the dispute with France.    Tho   British  premier  decided   upon  a certain  oourse
in regard to the Fashoda affair  and iu
order to   justify  his   action   he  nave
to the public   tho correspondence  lhat
had passed   between  tho two  govern-
ments  on    the    subject.    Tins   met
with the approval  of   the  nation and
such   men   as  Rosebery and Harcourt
did not  withhold   thoir  approbation,
hut   in   highly   patriotic speeches arrayed themselTJS   on Lord Salisbury's
side, putting away  from  thein all political differences and counselling tbeir
followers to do   the   same.    Thus  we
find a united peoplo  strengthening tho
hands of their prime minister.
This is not the rulo in this country.

An Outline of Difficulties in
the   Way.
Mr Sutherland Describes Canada's PreFent
Disabilities���Three  Solutions  of
....        the Diffioultieu
Mr. Hugh Sutherland, manager of
tbe Evening Star and Columbia mines
near Slocan City is in tho city, staying at the Phair. Ho reports that
his properties are looking well, three
Bhifts of men are working and the
new steam plant at the Evening Star
is giving every satisfaction. As an
owner of silver lead properties, Mr.
Sutherland is naturally very much interested in the question of the estab-
lijhment of local lead smelters, so
much so that he recently mado a trip
to Ottawa to lay the matter before tho
ministry, but ns a private individual
and not, as reported at tho timo, as
the accredited representative of British
Columbia miue owners.
Mr. Sutherland has made a careful
study of the question and gave a representative of Tho Miner a sketch of
his views ou the subject i'ud his reasons therefor.
The lead industry of Canada in almost exclusively confined to British
Columbia. The lead output of this
province for the year ending December 31, 1897, as given in the report of
the minister of mines, was 88,841.35
pounds. Report No. 040 of tho geological survey of Canada, covering the
same period, gives tho total product of
the Dominion as 119,018,219 pounds.
Owing to tho existing conditions,
the mine owners of this province are
foroed to seek iu the United .States a
market for tho lead in its raw state,
under the present tariff of that country the duty on lead contained in
"lead bearing ore of all kinds" is one
and a half cent per pound ; where as
the duty on lead bullion, or lead in
pigs and bars, and lead iu any form
not specially provided for iu tho act,
is two and buo-eighth cents per pound.
This discrimination, brought about
by the influence of the lend trust, was
originally iuteuded to keep out Mexican load British Columbia at that,
time exporting little or no lead.
But the result of course is to discour-
ago lead smelting in Canada. At
present prices the duty on lead bullion, or on lend in pigs and bars, is
prohibitive, whilo tho duty ou the ore
places Canada nt n great disadvantage in comparison with thc United
Thnt duty, as stated, i.s onn and a
half conts per pound ; in reality it is
one and two third cents, as, according to the roport of the British Columbia minister of mines, tho United
States smelter "ouly pays the miner
for ninoty per cent (of tho loud. " The
miuer, however, is obliged to send his
ore to the United States smelter because of the discrimination against
lead bullion. The Canadian industry
is put at a further disadvantage by
section 80 of the United States tariff
act of 1897, which provides for a ro-
bate of 99 por cent of the duty of tho
exportation of the manufactured products of foreign lend.
��� The practical effect of these conditions in to render lead mining in Canada unproductive ; in fact, the industry would be'eutirely abandoned if it
wore not for its association with silver. Thus considering the high grade
of British Columbia silvor-lead ores
and their enormous deposits, it becomes of the utmost importance for
some plan to be devised by means of
which the industry cnn be placed on n
paying basis.
An effort is being made to induce
the Canadian govermnont to raise the
duties ou lead and its manufactures
to a level with thoso imposod by the
United States, which are from two to
three times greater than tho Canadian
duties. Tne contention is that if this
wore done the homo inarkot at least
would bo secured for the Canndian
product. At present that market is
supplied almost entirely from importations. The home consumption of
lend is about 25,000 tons per annum,
while the total output of thoDoniiuion
is less than 20,000 tens. Thts the.'e.is
now a home market for 5000 Ions more
than the country picifinees, while the
production of the couutry is likely to
increase far morp rapidly than ils
powers of consumption.
it is doutbful, moreover if any duties short of being absolutely prohibitive would enable British Columbia
load to reach the markets of the eastern provinces, and duties that were prohibitive would partake of the character of retaliation It is not the pres-
out policy of either the United States
or the Canadian government to prolong thoir commercial differences. It
would not appenr to be expedient.
therefore, at this time to retaliate
by imposing higher duties on lead
and its products.
A more neighborly remedy would
bo lo prevail oh the Americau commissioners at tho Conference to accept au
offer of reciprocity iu lead. If lead
and its manufactures were admitted
free iuto both countries, the eastern
provinces might still depend ou the
United States for a portion of their
supplies, but tho removal of tho present discrimination and other disabilities would place tho industry in
British Columbia on a sound and
profitable basis.
Failing a reciprocal arrangenieut,
or the consent of the American com-
misioners to the abolition of the
present duties on lead iu ore and lead
bullion, a third plan might bear dis-
Iu Ontario and in Lower Canada, the
government advances money ou creamery products, handles uud sells it,
aud, after the salos are consummated
the balance of the price is paid to the
farmer less the necessary expenses. A
similar action might be takeu by the
government in dealing with the load
industry. No single individual or
firm could afford to store tho* lead,
and wait for a favorable market. Tho
government could, and, by operating
on a large scale, expenses would be
reduced to a minimum. Government
help might also be given to factories
who would manufacture the raw produce, and thus, not only v/ould the
smelting industry bo fos.ered and
Canada's market for lead articles
supplied from here, but Canada should
beforo very long bo iu a position to
compete in tho lend markets of the
world wiih the powerful lead trust
of the United States, a combine, it
must be remembered, which now controls tho lead markets of China and
Japan as well ns those of this continent.

The Allen Bros., have purchased the
two lots on Victoria street at the corner of Ward street, on whioh they intend to erect au opera house. The
building will be 50 feet by 75 feet,
three stories high. The flrst floor
will be divided into three stores.
The second floor will be fitted up as
an opera house with galleries on three
sides. A stage 20 feet deep will be
erected and the whole place will be
fitted up in first class style. Messrs.
Ewart <fc Carrie, architects, are preparing the plans for the new building,
the estimated cost of which will be
in the neighborhood of |10,000. The
venture of the Allen Bros., will doubt
less prove a success as the want of au
opera house has iu tho past been
greatly felt in Nelson. With tho ereo-
tion of an opera house on this corner
the opening of Ward street from Baker street to Victoria street ;will be
a necessity and the attention of the
board of works is drawn to the matter.

Kenneth Williams, lately returned
to Vancouver from tho Omineca and

particulars of a recent Hnd, a big ledge
of silver, in tlie Omineca country. Of
courso, silver 850 miles away from
Bazleton is good for nothing at the
present timo, but tho faet that silver
exists there at all is interesting in itself. Mr. Williams says that men ou
the Liard are making i*4 and $fi per day
during the season of low water panning
out gold on the bars. The silver find
was made in August by thc two sons
of u Hudson's Bay store keeper on the
Edmonton trail. The young fellow's
outfitted iu Vancouver and going up
