Wallace really represents  the nianu-

and   whose   mission   here   is   re-

Paris, Sept. 23.���Madame Piiulmier,
wife of M. Charles Paulmier, member of the chamber of deputies, from
tho deportment of Calvados, has added
another tragedy to the bewildering intricacies of the Dreyfus affair. Madame Paulmier today entered the office
of La Lanterue and asked to see M.
Millerand. M. Milleraud was absent,
M. Ollivea who was present stepped
forward to receivo the lady, who without waiting ior nny explanation,
whipped out a revolver and fired twice.
M. Ollivea fell to the floor wounded.
Ho was taken to a hospital. Madame
Paulmier was taken into custody and
whmi questioned, coolly announced "I
wished to kill M. Millerand.'' She
explained that La Laiiterno bad slandered herself and her husband because
her husband had written a letter to |
General Chanoine, the minister of i

to tho attacks upon the army provoked
by the Dreyfus affair.
The military authorities have accomplished their plan of stifling Colonel Picquart by placing bim au

been denied admission to tbe prison.
His counsel, Matiere Laborrio, has
twice applied at the oftiec of the clerk

permission to see his client. On both
occasions he was informed that Picquart had been placed in secret and

Victoria, Sept. 23.���News came on
tho steamer Princess Louise, arriving
here this morning, of tho wreck of tbe
Victoria steamer Barbara Boscowitz,
in northern waters. She was driven on
a rock four miles above Kitkatlah,
about noon on Friday last, white on
her way northward, by the swift current, and is a total loss. At high tide
she is all but coverod. Tlie passengers,
crew and most of the freight were
taken ashore in Indian canoes, the
salvage party being still aboard when
the Boscowitz keeled over and sank,
until she rested ou the rocks with only
her upper works visible. The Boscowitz was built here in 1883 and was
120 feet long, 23 feci beam, and 10 feet
hold. She was built by Capt J. D.
Warren, her present owner, although
she has not been iu his possession ever
since, having been sold about 12 years
ago to Capt. .1. S. Williams, for $20, -
000. He cleared $22,000 ou her the
flrst season. She has been a money
maker ever since she was launched.
The steamer Amur arrived from
Skagway and Lynn canal ports this
morning with 105 passeugers, mostly
from Dawson, who came up the rivet-
on the steamer Columbian and Canadian.' The passengers report that
Dawson has a complete modern fire
fighting apparatus, especially adapted
to the climatic, changes existing there.
Tho engine is one of the latest models
and ean bo operated in the coldest
weather. Tho hose cart and other
paraphanalia are all of tho best aud,
together with its well organized fire,
department, gives Dawson better protection than many older towns.
The gold bearing country is very
much larger than was supposed. Late
prospecting showed up the fact. It
is now known that it extends from below discovery on Pine river up to
Surprise lake, and covers much of the
territory embraced in tho different
streams" flowing into that magnificent
body of water. Surprise lake is estimated to be 75 miles long, and many
steamers enter it on oither side, all of
whioh so far as prospected, show up
rich iu gold. In the district so far
known to be gold bearing there is
room for 50,000 miners, and many old
miners lately arriving hero for supplies state that the diggings will rival
tho Klondike and will hold the attention of the world next year as tho
Klondike did the. past season.
News reached Wrangel, shortly before tho Amur sailed, of the death by
suicide of Gardner E. Richardson, of
Battle Creek, Mich., at Telegraph
creek. The suicide was tho direct rosult of hardships and privations due
to an attempt to reach the land of gold
over tho Ashcroft trail.
Among tho passengers trom thc interior is Major Talbot, paymaster of
tho Yukon force, who is going to
Quebec, where his wife is dangerously

There were 130 at work at the time
and but 50 escaped without injury.
Fivo men aro believed to havo been
killed and a large number entombed.

miners returned to town, having escaped by traversing a mile aud a half
of underground passages, coming out at
the opening near Lyon ou the Bed
stone branch of the Pennsylvania railroad. This point is four miles from tbe
opening on Monogaliola river. Another body that of Robert Davies, has
been recovered, making eight dead.
Nineteen miners are unaccounted for.
Nearly all who escaped are injured or
burned, either slightly or seriously.
The dead aro unrecognizable, being
burned and mutilated. Explosion is
said to have beeu caused by the loosening of a large block of coal, which
opened a pocket of gas. Tho entry
where the explosion occurred is located
a mile and a half from the pit mouth.

of 150 sovereigns, for three year olds
and upwards, was won by Queen of
Manila, Sept. 33.���A careful investigation of the attempt to poison Aguinaldo shows the cook is not dead, as reported, and that no priests are implicated, as alleged by the insurgent-.
Several Spanish cazadores were allowed to remain at liberty at Malolos
and two of them were employed iu
Aguiualdo's household. One of these
put a packet of oxalite of potash
powder in the soup and the cook detected it immediately, but nobody was
injured. A packet was found in thc
cazadore's pocket. There is no reason
to believe he had any accomplices.
The Filipino government proposed
to send a long despatch to President
McKinley, protesting against certain
alleged Spanish misstatements being
calculated to "undermine tne friendship betweeu the Filipinos and the
Americans. But, instead of doing so,
they simply sent a despatch tendering
to the American government and tlie
American people, through President
McKinley, an expression of "high esteem and unity of sentiment towards
the champions and protectors of
oppressed peoples, and sentiments of
liberty and independence."
On Thursday, the Filipinos intended
to have a grand festival at Malolos in
celebration of their independence.
The Filipinos Nat in",')1 assembly has
decided to request ihu Amtiricaus first
to recognize tho independence of the
island ; second, to establish a protectorate over their external affairs, and
to induce the powers to recognize their
independence; third, to appoint a joint
commission of Americans and Filli-
pinos for the arrangement ot details to
'' reciprocate the American services.''
The Railway Kate War is Ended and the
Old Figures Restored on Through
Passenger Business-
A Minor reporter yesterday interviewed the representatives of the Canadian Pacific and tho Great Northern
railways regarding the report that* the
old passenger rates, prevailing prior to
the rate war, which was commenced
last February, would bo restored on
Sunday the 25th inst.
Mr. W. F. Anderson, travelling passenger agent of the C. P. R., stated
that he bad received instructions from
headquarters that ou aud after September 25, the old rato is to be
charged. Tho rates over tho C. P. R.
as restored are as follows : From coast
points to Toronto, $05 and $55; to
Montreal $(19.10 and $58.05; to Halifax,
$85.00 and $08.55.
Tho rates from Kootenay points to
the cast have not yet been agreed upon
but pending a meeting of all tbe lines
interested the old rates will hold.
These are as follows : From Nelson to
Toronto, $00.05 and $60.05 ; to Montreal, $72.55 and $05.35; to Halifax,
$87.90 and $70.15. The rate given by
thed C. P. R., to eastern points ou the
late cut were : $-17.80 and $37. SO. Al
though the above, rates will be iu force
on and after Soptcmber 25, the Canadian company will give the lowest
rate allowed by anv American line.
The differential of $7.50 and $5.50
formerly allowed the C. P. R. on
through trafflo has been done away
with and the Canadian compnay has
been placed ou an equal basis with its
American rivals in the competition for
passengers trafflo. West bound rates

Tho Chinese   Potentate  Fears  an Attempt Upon  His Lifo.
London, Sept. 23 ���According to
special despatches from Pekin members of the European community there
believo the life of the emperor of
China is iu danger. It is added that
the dowager empress desires to place
Prince Kung's grandson ou the throne.
The emperor, it* is added, realizes the
strength of the conspiracy against him
and has ordered the guards at the palace to bo strengthened.
A despatch to the Central News from
Shanghai says that the report of the
death of the Emperor of China is not
confirmed. It seems however that his
life has been endangered, Tbe Latoi
governor of Shanghai offered a reward
of ��200 for tho capture of Kung Ku,
Jr., the leader of the reform party,
who is accused of being the leader of a
plot to murder the emperor, but
whether there was an actual attempt
to kill him is not known. Tho authorities nre now searching vessels arriving
from the north in the hope of arresting Kung and his confederates. A
Pekin advice received iu Shanghai
says the city gates are closed to prevent the escape of Kung. Search is
being made for him throughout the
city but without success.

Cretan disturbances and all the powers
aro of ono accord that the rights of
Mohammedans should be respected
equally with tho Christians. Europe,
consequently, would have to decide to

It has always been a strong argument by those who contend that railway fares are altogether too high and
should be fixed on a niillage basis by
the government, that low rates' induce travel and that, what tl.e companies might lose between tho high
fire and the low would be offset by
the increased volume of business. Tho
r3cent rate war between the Canadian
Pacific and the American trans-continental lines, or rather the different
lines that make up United States
trans-continental systems, has been
an impressive object lesson for the
railway companies of the valuo to
them of low fares. The Canadian Pacific railway never carried so great a
number of passengers by many thousands as is did daily during tlio rate
war, and although the Amerioan lines
may not bavo secured so large a sharo
of tho business, yet the season was a
profitable one to them.
This is evidence enough to support
the contention that while low rales of
travel are advantageous to the public,
they are also beneficial to the companies. The American roads bavo had
this conviction forced upon tbem, but
they aro all antagonistic to the Canadian Pacific and in order to prevent
that line securing tho bulk of tbe
trans-continental trade, tbey invoked
the powers of the Interstate Commerce
commission to compel the Canadian
line to restore rates, which bad been
reduced by the C. P. It. line becnuse
of unfair methods resorted to bv tho
American lilies. Constrained by ilie
decision of that commission tho Canadian Pacific decided to restore rates
to what they were before the cutting
began. Had the O. P. R. refused to
accept the decision of the commission
serious complication might* have ensued, as the Amerioan railway managers bad raised the cry that the Canadian line was intent, upon wrecking
tho United States railways and were
calling upon congress for protection
from the encroachments of tho alien
We do not think that tho increase
rates will last, tthe immediate effect of
restoration will bo to decrease travel
and as the railways have to run their
trains they wiil uot be satisfied with
the reduced receipts which must ensue. It is hoped, for the benefit of tbe
country, that tbere will be a speedy return to lower rates.
this is useful in  two ways  to  an
' editor. Tho statement he complacently
utters as a convincing truth today he
ran soberly correct as ail unverified re>
port tomorrow. Thus ho has two
items  of  so-eallod "news" and gotB a
1 name for vigilance and deep penetra-
linn.    But this sort of "news" gather-
I ing brings its punishment with it, inasmuch   as   it   discredits   the   trust'
i worthiness of the journal that engages
in it* and renders even its truthful
statements doubtful.
Mr. T. G. Shaughnessy wus in this
oity in June last. Ou June !), in The
Miner, appeared au interview with
him which closed as follows:
Mr. Shaughnessy further said that
it was most certainly his fixed determination   to   bring  the   Crow's Nest
! Pass railway into Nelson, thus there is
nothing to fear from the reports so
industriously circulated from time to
time in Kossland that it was intended
j to divert the road from the route originally laid down.
It is safer to depend on the utterances of Mr. Shaughnessy than upon
ihe irresponsible deductions of the
Rossland Miner which are evolved out
of vacuity.
Last Saturday evening, just* one
week after the disastrous tire which
I devastated the, city of New Westminster
land destroyed nearly the whole business portion of the city, tbe Columbian
resumed publication. This is tbe second time during the past nine years
that the Columbian plant and offices
were swept out of existence, tbe
former occasion being ou the night of
December 27, 1889. As the Columbian,
nine years ago roso from its ashes,
with renewed vigor after passing
through tho fiery ordeal, so will it*
again rise to brighter aud more prosperous future. Iu its affliction tbo Columbian has the sincere sympathy of the
newspaper fraternity of the province.
Its first number is very creditable one
under the circumstances and is an evidence of tbe energy of the publishers.
A company bearing tho abovo title
has been incorporated and registered
with a capital of ��200,000. This company is a subsidary company of the
London and British Columbia Gold
Fields, and has been formed to acquire

The stock of the new company is
not, however, being offered to tho

The Hon. TrAb^nT Daly, Q. C,

', tbat there were no very recent developments in the Le Roi litigation. The
mine is again under the old management, and is shipping 200 tons a day.
Mr. Daly expected that the appeal
from Mr. Justice Irving's decision,
as to Judge Spinks' jurisdiction iu his

The. Rossland Miner comes out periodically with a statement to the effect
that the Canadian Pacific railway company is surveying or about to survey a
new location for tho Crow's Nest railway via Salmo and Trail, this abandoning the route by way of Nelson,
The Rossland journal seems to dwell
with deep satisfaction on th:'a
thought and to take delight in frequent* expression of it in order to ticklo
the vain expectations of those who
share its fallacy. But tho thought is
vain and the expression of it culpably
misleading. Tlie Rossland Miner
knows that what it says is untrue.
The lino will como to Nelson and beforo many months bave passed this
city will havo all rail connection with
the east. The, route was definitely
settled long ago. It cannot be changed
without the consent of the minister of
railways and the government. Such
consent could not easily be secured.
Besides such a chango would violate
the agreement and upon that agreement depends the payment of the subsidy.
The Rossland Miner, while n good
and reputable paper in many respects,
has Hie defect so often met with in
western ipers, and probably attribut
able to too close connection with the
reckless press of the western states, of
publishing so-called information without   making   any  effort   to verify it.

Some   More    Applications    on   Civil
Cases  Dealt With.
At 10 o'clock yesterday morning Mr.
Justice Irving sat in chambers for the
purpose of hearing various applications.
The first, on tho list was iu tho
case of Pendor vs. The War Eagle company, iu which W. A. Galliher applied
on behalf of the plaintiff for a change
of venuue to Rossland. The application was opposed by E. C. Senkler.
After some argument the case was
adjourned until Monday.
In the caso of Kelly vs. Hall Mines

of the defendants for an extension of

England. Tho extention was granted

Another    Varied   Programme���Fresh
Songs, Fresh Dresses and Pictures.
Last night the Cosgrove company

at* the Rink, under the auspices of the
Nelson baseball club, and with the exception of one or two most, attractive
items there was a complete change of
Miss Ada Cosgrove repeated her hit
of thc night before of "The Masher up
to date," giving as an encore "On the
Broadway." Later on as a little girl,
dainty and cspiegle as ever, Miss Ada
Collins delighted the audience with
"What a wicked young man,'' and received an encore. Her graceful dancing, too, both alone in the Highland
fling, and in company with Miss Lillian Cosgrove in the Gypsy dance was
one of the features of the entertainment.
Mr. Harry Fay confirmed the popularity ho hod acquired the night before
by his inimitable rendering of several
comic songs. Mr. Pay is a first class
low comedian and gained a well deserved encore in each case. The "Shop
walker" and "I can't change it,"
were perhaps his best efforts.
Space forbids a detailed notice of all
the turns, hut Miss Lillian's dancing
in the gypsy dance must not be forgotten, nor her performance on the
guitar and with tlie musical glasses
and the bells.
Jliss Evelyn Mackie gave fresh evidence of her skill as an elocutionist,
the pathetic story of "An incidental
a railway station, " being most artistically delivered.
Mr. J. Cosgrove showed great skill on
the mandolin and banjo, tin encore of
a solo on the latter being insisted on
by the audience.
The kinetoscope views were new
and as good as ever, though it is impossible to dotail theni here. The
stereopticon was used most effectively
in illustrating Miss Ada Cosgrovo's
well rendered song "Better than
gold," Mr. R. Cosgrove accompanying
this and all the other songs with taste
and accuracy.
Tho performance closed with the
vivd presentation of naval scenes from
tho Spanish-American war.

��� Giroux,
between Sandon and Kaslo. The town-
site was recently purchased by the R.
B. Brown syndicate, owners of the
Whitewater Dcop mine. The population tit the present time numbers about
-100 people, and every line of busiue'is
necessary is represented. Tho future
prosperity of tlie towu depends upou
the development and success of the two
mines iu tho immediate vicinity, tho
Whitewater mine, owned aud operated
by tho London aud B. O. Goldfields
and Ibe Whitewater Deep owned by
tho R. E. Browu syndicate.
At tho Whitewater mine about TO
men arc employed und theree car loads
of oro are being shipped per week. A
concentrator is being built and part* of
tho machinery has been installed.
The miue is luting developed by seven
tunnels running in on the lead one
below the other. Tlie highest tunnel
is now in about 8S0 feot, about 250
feet below the Apex of tho hill. The
other tuuuels arc in respectively (iOO,
600,480,860,820 and 1100 feet. They are
all connected by winzes.
The ore throughout is of that rich
character of shipping oro in the Slocan
tind is particularly amenable to concentration. Itis a galena oro but in
places grey copper is met with, which
materially euchauoes its value. Development work in sloping is being
actively prosecuted, work being done
in five of the tunnels.
At the Whitewater Deep 50 men are
being employed in development work,
and ii new concentrator and air compressor are being built, for which 10
carloads of machinery have beeu received. Handsome, and commodious
otliees Hilda beautiful residence for the
manager, Mr. F. Riffle, have been
erected in the town, about half a mile
from the mine.
The Canadian Paciiic railway company have had a party of engineers in
the field for the past couple of months,
locating a route for iho extension of
tlieir lino from Sandon to Whitewater
in order to secure a shnro of the output nf the two mines mentioned abovo
as well as that of other properties in
thc vicinity, which are expected shortly
to bo opened up. The O. P. R., extension will likely bo mado early next
year aud will assist greatly in the development of the mineral resources of
the district.
