Paris,   Sept.   28.���Tlio Ganlois, this
I morning, publishes an interview wilh
the minister of the eolouies, M.
JTrouillet, who is qnoted ns saying
that it is not true that Major Marchand has been abandoned. Up to the
present the minister added, tho French
'government hud heard only the British version of tho Major's occupation
of Fashoda and no steps would be
taken in the matter until   tne  French
1 officers' reports are received. Tho
minister further remarks that no
essential point had been secured in the
[avoidance of a collision between
���French and British   troops aud that it
about establishing means of self-protection. A militia company was
organized tind Thos. F. Bayard was
elected its first lieutenant. Iu June 1,
1861, the famous peace meeting of
citizen was held in Dover and Lieutenant Bayard AVils one ��f tho principal
speakers. He denounced the war and
his remarks on that occasion have been
qnoted in lato years as an argument
against his availability as a presidential candidate. Meawhile Jlr. Bay-
lard's popularity in his mit ive state
l kept growing rapidly and in INliS he
; was elected to succeed his father in
i the. United [States senate and was subsequently twice re-elected. As soon
as tlie result of the national election of
1884 was positively known, Mr. Bayard was the flrst democratic statesman
invited to consult with Presidentelect Cleveland and it was generally
understood that he was the first offered
a place in the cabinet. He finally accepted the state portfolio. At the close
of Mr. Cleveland's administration,
Mr. Bayard returned to private life
and to his legal profession. In March
1893 Mr. Bayard was appointed ara-
liasssador to the courl of ttt. James
and served during Mr. Cleveland's
second term.

The party chatted briefly upon generalities and tho minister finally assured
the commissioners of the great pleasure cxperienceiiby France in the part
she has taken in effecting a suspension
of hostilities between Spain and the.
United States, and expressed the hope,
of having the pleasure of meeting the

In the Notorious Dreyfus Case���Why a
French   President Resigned.
London, Sept. 28.���The Daily News
(his morning commences the publication of a scries of articles which it
alleges explains the Dreyfus affair.
Today's article concerns tho resignation of M.Casiiiiir-Perier of the French
presidency, which it describes as a
strange, sad story.    The article says:
"The persons in the socret are the
kaiser, Count Von Munsier, M. Dupuy,
JI. Hauotaux, Genoral Mercier, General Boisdefve, Colonel Schwarzkopen,
Count Esterhay and the lato Henri
Saudherr. Besides the French ministry others had the affair in their
"In Decombcr 1894, a detailed report
of the Dreyfus affair which Count
Yon Minister sent by the usual sources
to tho kaiser, was intercepted aud
photographed at the French frontier.
Yet it reached the emperor without
delay a fow days later. This fact became known to the information bureau
at Berlin aud Germany ordered Count
Von Minister to demand his passports
for the offense was regarded as robbery
and an offense to the emperor on the
principal of extra territoriality.
"When Count Von Munster made his
demand at the palace of the Elysee,

whelmed with the suddenness of the
revelation and was beside himself.
In an extraordinary scene he gave his
word of honor, repudiating all connections with or knowledge of the
affair and solemnly promised to pro-
vent a repetition of it.
"Count Vou Munster issued and sent
a socond report of this interview. This
document was similarly intercepted
and photographed, tho negative arriving at the French foreign office
within 48 hours.
"Somo days later, on January 12,
1895, Count Von Munster called at the
palace of tho Elysco and suddenly announced that Germany would mobilize
her troops forthwith unless satisfaction
was given for this new insult. A
dramatic scene followed. Count Von
Munster, a prey to violent feelings,
reproaching M. Casimir-Perier with
having dishonered him in the eye of
the empire. M. Casimir-Perier was
crushed and could not repy at first,
but presently said:
"Tell your emperor, I myself will
give hiin satisfaction. I do not want
to sacrifice the country. 1 will leave
the presidency. I pray his majesy
to be satisfied.'
"Two days later M. Casmir-Perier
consequently resigned.''

Woman   Suspected of   tho   Bridgeport

London, Sopt. 28.���Tho detectives
lost sight of the woman they shadowed
after her arrival at Liverpool yesterday morning off the steamer Vancouver
from Montreal and are now ransacking
Loudon hotels and boarding houses,
The woman referred to is supposed to
bo Dr. Nancy Guilford, mid-wife, of
Bridgeport, Conn., who is wanted by
tho Conneticut police for the murder
of Emma Gill, of Southington, Conn.,
whoso body, cut into several pieces,
was discovered sometime ago in the
Yellow Mill pond, near Bridgeport.
The woman thought to be Mrs.
Guilford was a second class passeugor
as Mrs. Wilbur and occupied berth No.

lookout, Mrs. Guilford was not arrested becauso of insufficient proof of
her identity. It is supposed Mrs.
Guilford at onco took tho train for

Quebec, Sopt. 28.���There seems to bo
no doubt that   the  commissioners   are
maikng  substantial progress, and that
not one of  two   but  the  bulk of   the
questions in tho protocol   are in a fair
way of  settlement.    The   Behring sea
and Alaska  boundary  questions  have
been   the   first   big   problems   to    be
brought to  a  point  of solution.    Mr.
Joseph   Martin,   attorney   general   of
British Columbia, is said to be coming
here to protest in the interest of future  .
generations   against   the   sale  of  our
right to tako seals in the  Behring sea.
But a treaty would   not   be possible if
the   questions were   all  viewed  from
this   standpoint.    Speaking with only
a glimmer of knowledge of  what  has
been agreed   on, it  may  be said   that
Canada will  not  surrender  this right
without   a cash   indemnity  from   the
United States as payment for Canadian
sealing ships and their outfit, and also
a  substantial concession   in return for
our surrender of the right  to continue
operations.    The   probable   concession
to Canada will be   the   transfer of territory at the head of  the  Lynn canal,
thus  giving   sufficient  access  to   the
Yukon all the year around.    It is possible  that  as   a result of  arbitration,
Canada might swvw-e   this   wifhotrt  a
concession, bnt  the arbitration would
be long, tedious and costly, and the result extremely doubtful.   The reciprocity problem is   admittedly  the  worst
of the issues given the commissioners,
and it was  believed the determination
of Canada to stand  by the principle of
a preferential tariffi   would be used as
a  good   excuse  by the Americans  for
their refusal to  talk  free  trade.    Tho
commissioners   of  the United   States
have   not   taken  such  an  unbending
stand.    In accepting the   facts as they
exist they are seeing   if  it  would not
be possible to mako a limited reciprocity treaty, embracing  articles   in   the
sale of which   to   Canada the  United
States   and   England   are    not   competitors.    There   are   more   of    these
articles   than  might be imagined and
from them   a list of   the   natural   and
manufactured  products   may probably
be compiled and   the  free list for both
countries  increased   to   their  mutual
Victoria, Sept. 28.���The news from
Quebec respecting the reported agreement on the Alaskan boundary dispute
is received hero with incredulity, as
involving the surrender of territory
and rights without, any return. The
Colonist says: "By every principle
of international law the right ot pelagic sei.ling is vested in the people of
Canada. By every principe of intena-
tional law aud by the only roasonable
construction of the treaty of 1825,
Canada already owns both ports at tho
head of Lynn canal. Yet we ars told
we must surrender all those, our undoubted rights, and accept in lieu,
through the gracious consent of the
United States, permision to retain control of our ports.
"It seems increditable that so complete a surrender of.Canada's right can
be for ono moment contemplated. If
developments prove that the roport is
corrects, wo submit that the strongest
kind of a protest ought to be made
by tho people of British Columbia. Iu
common with othors we have no wish
to seo anything dono that will embarrass ttoe British members of tho
conference, but this feeling must give
way when it becomes apparent that
valuablo rights aro to bo given up for
no equivalent. Canada does not need a
port at the head of Lynn canal so
badly that anything of value ought to
be given up for it, even if it belongs to
the United States. There are other
routes into Yukon.

Col. Walker a prominent railway
man in the United States and formerly
a member of the interstate commerce
commission, is at Quebec on an important mission to the international
confereuco in session there. Ho bears
nothing loss than a request from
powerful railway interests in the
states that the Canadian railways lie
brought under the operations of the
United States interstate commerce
law and that in any treaty with Canada this form a clause uf the agree-
ment, any breach of the arrangement
on lhe part* of Canadian railways to be
met by action on tho part of the commission depriving the offending lines
of the carrying of United States goods
frcr one point in that eountry to another.
This ���would be   a  very agreeable arrangement for the United States lines,
but, they will  not   have   the gratifica
tion  of  seeing   it adoptod.    The mis
take the United States  people make is
in refusing to regard tlie Canadians as
an independent people.    It   is  a popular fallacy   across   tlie line that   if "all
communication   with     CaUada    were
shut off Canada would speedily starve.
As to the railways they are. looked upon as mainly  subsisting  upon United
States   trade.    The   Canadians are   an
energetic, industrious and perservering
people and it, is   not   likely   that   they
would sit down in despair and 'die  of
inanition if  the  poople of the United
States should refuse to extend to them
their   distinguished   consideration    or
that rust would   eat up tlieir railways !
if  they  wero  deprived ot  trade from
point to point   in   the United   Statos.
Therefore, it is absurd   to talk of Canadian railways surrendering   their liberty of action to an  alien  commission
entirely out of sympathy with thom.
The war correspondents, British and
American, who were  with   Kitchener
in   tho   Soudan, complain of   ths disabilities   under   whieh   they   worked
owing   to    tho    restrictions,   if   not
slights,   put   upon   them  by   General
Kitchener. Tho English correspondents
are rapidly falling into  tho error their
American  conferres   generally   make,
that they have special privileges which
place them before   others.    The  newspaper man, no matter what his standing, has   no "rights" which   are   not
enjoyed by other individuals. Through
courtesy newspaper men   enjoy certain
privileges not   extended  to others, but
none  of   these   can  bo claimed   as  a
right   and  if   any of   them   be withdrawn tho newspaper man may be   incommoded but tbey cannot complain of
any   infringement   of   their  liberties.
American newspaper men   proceed  on
the   assumption   that   they   are privileged persons   and   tliey thrust themselves into  all   companies   publishing
what they hear, and   often what   they
do not hear, without   regard   to consequences,    Among   the   duties   of   the
Spanish   spies   in   Canada   during the
late war with Spain was   lo watch the
American press   for  information valuable to   the   Spanish   government and
the reckless way   in which   the   New-
York     and    other    papers    revealed
military and naval plans made the spy
service valuable.    English correspondents, however, and English  papers are
not given to  prying  into and publishing government   matters which should
be kept secrot and  it is difficult to understand why   General  Kitchener  refused to allow them to accompouy him
to Fashoda.    He had   his   reasons   or
he would not havo taken  such action.
During the rebellion in   the  Canadian
North West the   lato General  Middle-
ton excluded newspaper correspondents
Tin' Methodist conference at Toronto
bas   decided   that   members   of     the
church who  go to theatres  or  dances
or   have   dances   or   card  playing  iu

the   debate   Mr.  Edward   Gurney, the
well known Toronto  manufacturer  in
reply   to   Mr. John T. Moore, another
well  known   Toronto   man,   said   he
would as soon play a game of  cards as
read a novel, yet   it was  asserted that
card playing led straight to hell.   Bro.
Moore    replied   that  not ouly    card
playing but dancing,  though  countenanced by Victoria, the purest sovereign
nn earth, led   down  to   hell,  to wbicb
Mr. Gurney   made   rejoinder   tbat the
man wbo thought,   so   was a candidate
for   a   lunatic   asylum.    The   freedom
with   which   some   persons   condemn
otliers to hell would be indeed shocking
did we not know that   the   destiny   of
men is in mighty  hands,   which   will
deal leniently,  is the   confident   hope,
even    with   offenders   so   debased   as
those who so far forgot   themselves  as
to dance or touch cards.

Mr. P.   Vi.   Peters, district,   freight
(tent uf the 0. P. R., has returned to
telson after a trip over the Crow's
feat   Pass   railway, aud  has an inter-
^tiiiK story tn tell regarding Ihe new
liiVvav      and   the     country    through
[nich it runs.
The immediate object nf Mr. Peter's
lip was to make arrangements fnr tlm
landling of freight over the new line,
Vhich will he open ns far as Kootenay
kke landing by October I. As the
l:ows and steamers necessary to make
tater connection   between   Kootenay
muling and Nelson arc now available,
lie through line will bo almost iniine-
fiately open, though it is not antioi-
fated   it   will   be   possible to   handle
egular traffic   before    the end of   No-
| ember,
Until the road between Kootenay
Janding and Nelson is open,the former
fclace will be the terminus of the line,
fhe comoany is not bound by its
Charter to' have this part of the line
L'pen until 11)00.and it has not yet been
' eided, whether or no lhe full limit
\.{ tune will be taken advantage of.
Mr    Peters   was   shown     over   the
Jrow's Nest t'oal company's  mines at
Fernie, and  says   there   are  immense
Quantities   of  ooal   tbere, tbe   mines
feing   probably   the   largest   in    the
���,-orld.    It   is   of   very   fine   quality,
���arni},' an unusually   large percentage
hf fixed carbon.
The coal is   now   being   used on tlie
comotives   in   the    line,     and   Mr.
[aiicv savs it is tlie  best coal for locomotives   that   he  has  ever seen, as it
BUerateS more heat and   leaves   fewer
linker than any other.    Tbe I!. P. R.

Mr. Peters has made arrangements
lor the immediate shipping of five or
lix cars of tho coal, one of which will
le sent to each of the different smelt-
lrs, and also a ear to each of the towns
If Nelson, Rossland and Sandon. As
Iio coal is peculiarly adapted for
lomestio puproses, house holders will
lhus have an opportunity of testing it
efore making their arrangements tor
Bio winter. The shipment may hi expected in Nelson in ahout two weeks
The   construction     of   the    Crow's
est Pass railway is a  record for good
ad rapid   railway construction.    The
B2 miles of road has been   laid   ia   13
lionths, notwithstanding  great   natural obstacles and the   distance of   the
fork   from   the  base of   supplies.    It
jas been necessary to   build   a   wagon
pad the entire   ltngth   of   the line in
Irder to get   in   the necessary supplies
If the   immense  number of  laborers.
lul this has considerably retarded contraction.    Since   crossing     Kootenay
[ver, tracklaying   bas proceeded at an
���Wage rate of 3:,.i miles per day.
1 The credit of   this spleudid aehieve-
leut is duo to M. J. Haney, who  has
tccessfully surmounted the  numerous
fffleulties and   delays necessarily   at-
Imdant   on   a   work of   such magni-
[ule, everything   being   so   organized
hat the whole undertaking   proceeded

] Mr. Peters also gave  a  very favor-
pie report of the mines he had visited,
the St, Eugene, the Moyie and the
Lake Shore more especially. Each of
these properties contains immense
bodies of galena ore, larger, probably
than any to be found in the Slocan,
the ore, however, is of lower grade than
that which usually obtains in the latter district, bearing about the same
values as are generally found iu the
shipping mines of the Coeur d'Alenes.
The ore, too, is easy to mine, aud the
lust transportation facilities are now
available owing to the advent of the
Tho St. Eugene is owned by Messrs.
,T. A. Pinch aud John Cronin, one of
the original locators. They intend to
erect a concentrator in the spring.
Tbe Movie is now under bond to an
Engl ish" syndicate for $125,000. All of
these mines will begin shipping as
soon as the railroad cau handle the
After returning from the Crow's
Nest Pass, Mr. Peters proceeded to
Sandon in company with Mr. James
Oborne of  the  0. P. R., who is Mr.
Shaughnessy'S assistant. He reports
lhal the mines are looking well, and
that, the business conditions of the
great, silver eamp are improving in a
most  satisfactory way.
Tho party paid a visit to several
mines, and Mr. Peters reports that the
Last Chance, ou which a tramway is
being constructed, is showing up well,
the Noble Five is being systematically
developed wilh encouraging results,
while the Slocan Star never looked
better. P. Hickey is working the Ivanhoe on Sandon ereek, and has a large
body of ore blocked out. He intends
to start rawhiding as soon as the
snow comes, and will put in a tram
next spring.
In this connection it may be stated
that hitherto, all Sloean ores destined
for eastern smelters liave been sent
liy way of Hevesltnke. Nnw that the
(jrow's Nest Pass road is available they
will pass through Nelson instead and a
considerable   increase in the local staff
f llie O. P. R. will be needed, in
order to handle the large amount of
freight from this source.

Cook wants Situation,
Antonio Bruno Tried For His
Life a Second Time.
No Fresh Evidence is Produced   R-
Macdonald Makes a Fine Speech.
Jurors Discharged,
The second trial of Antonio Bruno
011 the charge ot murder began yesterday morning before Mr. Justice Irving, nnd lasted the whole day. The
evidence produced was ulraosl identical with that elicted in the former
trial which was reported with considerable detail in a recent issue of The
Miuer. No attempt, therefore, will
be made in tliis article to an over the
ground which has already been covered.
For the benefit of those readers, however, who may not be acquainted with
the facts a brief outline of the case
i) subjoined.
On Saturday. August 6, tho prisoner
and the deceased, one Guiseppe Piero,
who had been working on the Crow's
Nest Pass railway, were paid by the
on four miles of heavy rock immediately east of the town.
P. Burns, who has the contract to
supply Messrs. Mann, Foley Bros., &
Larsen with fresh meat.is now supplying the local marker.
A steamer, the Myrtle B, under command of Capt. Benjafield, is now plying on Christina lake, having been
brought in from Arrow lake.
Owing to a scarcity of lumber, build-
in;; is greatly retarded at Cascade. At
least a dozen large buildings are under contract to lie contracted as soon
us the necessary material can be obtained.
All the sub-contracts for railway
work between Cascade City aud Grand
Forks have uow been lee, and work is
being pushed ahead as rapidly as possible the chief obstacle being met with
Icing the scarcity of men.
Provincial Veterinary Inspector
Christie has discovered another outbreak nf glanders on Boundary ereek.
He is hopeful that it can be stamped
out before it spreads.
Residents at Christina lake are reported to be clamoring for the establishment of nost offices at (Hailstone
aud English Point.
Piero   had   a
owing   to   the
time check, which,
insertion of another
man's name , the paymaster would
not cash. Bruno also claimed he was
short in his pay.
Accordingly, early Sunday morning
the two started out from their camp,
which was situated some eight miles
west of Moyie, to get their mistakes
recitfied. Pierio was going to Cranbrook to see the man whose name was
on his check.
That evening Bruno returned home
alone explaining, though the details of
his story vary, that he had met one
Luigi and another, that they had gone
on with Pierio, and that he had felt
sick and had turned back. He said iu
evidence he had been to Hannington's
camp to cash his check, meeting he
said Mr. Fraser. the timekeeper, at 10
a. m., but Mr. Fraser says it was 4
p.  m.
Ou Tuesday afternoon lie started for
Goat River with the dead man's
things without saying good-bye, and
travelled night and day.
Iu the meantime, the dead body of
Pierio was found 41., miles from Co
camp, and Bruno was arrested ; t
Goat River, and the check Pierio was
to have got rectified at Cranbrook is
fouud on his person.
A number of witnesses were examined, several of whom were Ittal-
ians, Alexander Rozzato interpreting
for them most i ffectivi lv.
At about 7 :4o p* m. the judge tegan
to review the evidence, his charge
being generally looked upon as unfavorable to the prisoner, and the jury retired to consider their verdict shortly
before 9 o'clock.
In the course of his remarks to the
jury his lordship took occasion to compliment Mr. R. M. Macdonald, counsel for the defense, on his powerful
aud eloquent address to the jury.
At about 10:4") tho jury, having
been out for two hours, were recalled,
ami the foreman slated that
there was no prospect of their
arriving at a verdict. The jury was
accordingly dismissed. The judge then
discharged the jurors in waiting.
The names of the jurors engaged on
the second trial are Thomas A. Mills,
foremau ; A. H. Clements. Vi. N. Ironsides, J. Paterson, J. Duhamel, A.
Ford, E. H. Stanley, Duncan McDonald, J. Miles, F. B. Lys, E. Vi.
Matthews and A. (i. Simpson.
Workmen    on   the   Rohson-Penticton
Railway Narrowly Escape Death.
Two remarkable escapes from death
were had by two workmen on the
line of the Robson-Penticton railway,
this week.
A man named Purcell while striking
a drill on Burns and Jordan's sub-cou-
tract, about four miles below Brooklyn, lost his balance and fell down a
precipice a distance of 80 feet aud
afterwards rolled ^00 feet further. No
Innes were broken although he received severe scalp wounds, but Dr.
Dutton, the surgeou, says ho will recover.
On the same day William D. Johu-
sou, who was working at a high elevation on the contract of Olaf Olson,
~'ii miles from Brooklyn, lost his balance and fell backwards a distance of
2'. feet, receiving serious wounds on
the head and breaking his arm. Old
railroaders regard both as hairbreadth
escapes from instant death.
Kingstou, Jamaca, Sept. 2$.���A despatch from the British colonial office
has been received here, vetoing the
offer of the Jamaican government to
contribute to the fund for the relief of
the sufferers by tho recent hurricane.
This action is taken as implying the
Imperial government's assumption of
the entile burden of the relief of the
devasted islands which will appreciably
affect the public subscriptions.

Arrangements   Mado    for   Separation
From New Westminster Diocese.
The committee having in charge the
details of the formation of the Koot-
cuay diocese of tho Anglican church
met on Tuesday afternoon at St.
George's church, Rossland. Those
present were Rev. Irwin, rector of St.
George's, Rev. Akehnrst of St. Saviours', Nelson, Hon. T. Mayne Duly,
John Harris and Alfred Dyer of Ross-
laud. It was decided lo recommend
the partition of the New Westminster
diocese by making the 120th parallel
,of longitude the dividing line. On
this basis the   Kootenay diocese would
be bound by the international boundary line on the south, the 120th parallel on the west, the northern confines
of the province on the north ond the
summit of tho Rocky mountains on
the east.
It was also recommended that the
Bishop of New Westminster remain
bishop of the Kootenay diocese until
such time as it is expedient to appoint one for each diocese.
Tho committee also discussed tho
question of division of the church fund
of the New Westminster diocese as ir
exists at present, and it was suggested
that upon the creation of the Kootenay
diocese the division should be made in
proportion to the population.
