Observer dated Nazey island, September -', says:
Omdurman has been after a battle of
ouly slight, resistence offered by the
Dervishes. The khalifa, who had entered tlie town, tied as we entered.
One hundred and fifty prisoners were

A   COMPLETE VICTORV.
Cairo, Sept.-I.���2 a, m.���The follow*
ing despatch dated yesterday (Saturday) has just been received from
Nazey:
Early this morning rhe Dervishes
mnde a most determined attack upon
the Anglo-Egyptian forces. Imt after
an hour's hard fighting we drove them
off.
At s :80 a. in. a general advance was
ordered upon Omdurman und again
wc were received with determined attaok on our right, but* tho Dervishes
were once more repulsesd with heavy
loss.
Tho army, under the personal command of tne khalifa, was totally dispersed by noon.
At 2 o'clock this afternoon our forces
advanced again and occupied Omdurman, The khalifa fled during the forenoon and is now being closely pursued by our cavalry. The British loss
is estimated at about 100, the Kgyptiau
loss at* about 200, Karl Neufeld was
rescued unharmed,
NEUFELD'S EXPERIENCES.
Herr Neufeld, who is referred to in
the foregoing despatch, fell into the
hands of the Ma.lhi's followers in the
neighborhood of Dongola in thn late
spring or early summer of 1NS7. Tlie
first reports received after liis capture
were that the whole party were, beheaded. A later report was that Neufeld had been spared, but placed in
fetters. Finally a letter was received
from himself, ilated Khutouiii, where
lie said he wus being treated in a very
frljjJOdly manner by tbe muhdi. He
ne&'ly " lost his life when the liiuhdi
was told thut Neufeld wus an English
or Egyptian spy sent to ascertain
whether Mudir Mustaphu Pasha was
favorable to the English. Thn mahdi,
highly incensed, declared that he regretted not having hanged Neufeld,
and ho had him loaded witli chains
and cast into prison, where he remained four years. Ultimately a
scarcity of powder arose in the Soudan, nnd Neufeld's knowledge of
chemistry was  brought   into  requisi-
1 tiou for its manufacture. It appears
that ho collected saltpeter and mado
the'explosives, but. the same narratives
i that give this information describo
him as still in fetters and carrying
iron rings around his feot.    His  noxt
, clover exploit was subsequent to tho
death of the mahdi and under the rule
of the khalifa.    Neufeld  decorated the
I tomb of tho mahdi, whoso domo the
British gunboats havo just partially
demolished, and did the work so effoo-
Loudon, Sept. !i.���The National Review, referring to tlie recall of the
United States ambassador, Col. Hay,
to becomo sooretary of state says it
considers Colonel Hay the best ambassador accredited here in recent
years, adding: "He has spoken woll
und not too often; he has abstained
from being more Birtish thnn the
British ; he has refrained from fulsome
flattery; nor has he indulged in postprandial gush ; but he has missed no
fair opportunity of promoting friendly
feeling betweeu A ntflo- Americans,
and he has been emphatically the
right man." Tlie National Review
suggests Senator Woloott as Col. Hay's
successor.

THE BASEBALL GAME.
The   Queen's   Hotel    Team  Win  tho
Match and the Dinner.
An interesting game of baseball was
played yesterday afternoon on the
recreation ground between the boarders and employes of the Queen's and
the Hume hotels. One of the condition:', of the game was that the losers
give a dinner to the winners at the
latter's hotel,so the Queen's hotel boys
are to be entertained tonight at 8
o'clock by their late opponents.
The first innings wns very disastrous
for the team from the Hume, as their
opponents mnde 11 runs, thus obtaining a lend which they never lost. In
the. last innings, howover thc Hume
boys pulled themselves together and
mnde a bold bid for victory, but, ns
will be seen by tho score given below,
the effort came too late and tho
representatives of the Queen's hotel
won by 85 runs to 80. It might be
mentioned, too, that the winning team
were never dismissed Without scoring,
while tlie losers drew a blans ou three
occasions,
Jim Neelands captioned the Queen's
hotel team, and Sam Neelands the
Hume, both brothers doing some very
effective pitching for their respective
combinations, Hurry Wright, tho
catcher for the winning team, deserves
special mention. He did somo very
good work, which was the more creditable ns it was his lirst essay behind
the bat. Bob Lemon nnd George Bigelow were prominent rooters for tho
contending teams. The former was
specially enthusistic, taking off liis
coat and vigorously exhorting and applauding liis friends, the Queenites.
The Hume boys are not content with
their beating, and there is every probability of 11 return match in the
immediate future.
The names of the players and thoir
positions nre given below :
Queen's Hotel.���Harry Wright,
catcher; W. A. Ward, lst base; J.
Neelands, pitcher; W. MacLean, 2nd

GERMANY IS JUBILANT
German Officials Oould Throw Much Light
on  tho  Subject if They Ohoose-
Was Henry Murdered?
Paris, Sopt. 4.���Tlie Dreyfus agitation is uotgabatiug. The populace was
again inflame today by posters printed
by Sieclo, with which the town has
been plastered. They reproduce two
letters which Dreyfus wrote to tho
minister for war iu 1894 and one
wliich he wrotejj to his counsel, De
Mago, in 1895, protesting his innocence and denying that he over had
been guilty of any indiscretion. The
posters also dealt at length with the
fact that Colonel Picquart wrote on
July a, affirming the falsity of Colonel
Henry's documents, und they decry
the arrest and imprisonment of Picquart.
CAVAIGNAC RESIGNS.
M. Cavaignac today sent the following letter of resignation to M. Bris-
son, premier and the president of the
council:
"I havo the honor to scud you and
beg you to transmit to the president
of the republic my resignation as minister of war. There exists a disagreement between us, which being prolonged, would paralyze the government at a time when it most needs tull
unity of decision. I remain convinced of the guilt of Dreyfus and am
determined as heretofore to combat a
revision of the case. I do not intend
to shirk the responsibility of the present situation, but I cannot assume it
without being in accord with the
chief of the government to which I
have tho honor to belong,''
These are tho circumstances which
led M. Cavaignac to resign. After
the discovory of Lieutenant Colonel
Henry's forgery the government sought
moans to reassuro the public. The
question of revision was broaohed.
Cortain ministers believed that tho
time had come to throw full light
and to establish every responsibility.
M. Cavaignac strongly objected. Ho
declared that ho was convinced of the
guilt of Dreyfus.
M. Brisson vainly pointed out to
M. Cavaignac that the revision would
be purely judicial.
M. Cavaignac replied thnt revision
could only be justified if some now
fnct developed to show that there had
been a judicial error and that no such
fact existed. Henry's forgery being
subsequent to tlio conviction of Dreyfus and only indirectly connected with
it.
M. Bourgoois, called from Switzerland, mado a now effort but M. Cavaignac still refused
Tlie latter saw M. Brisson, tho
premier, and declared that his determination was immovable and that
he would resign. After M. Cavaig-
nac's departure, Ja conference was held
at the ministry of the interior between
M. Brisson Minister Bourgeois and
M. Sarrine. About 9 o'clock M.
Cavaignaic's letter of resignation was
received. It is assumed that a majority of the cabinet accept tho views of
M. Brisson, as the others maintain
thoir portfolios. Tlie resignation of
M. Cavaignac enables the government
to decide the matter and it i.s believed
that M. Cavaignac's successor at tho
war department will soon be appointed
and a definite resolution taken.
WAS   HENRY MURDERED?
New York, Sept. 4.���A despatch to
the Herald from Paris says: Among
the many wild rumors flying about is
one that'seems too incredible to merit
oven notice, but it shows the state of
the publio mind. Tliis is a belief tliat
Colonel Henry did not commit suicide.
Figaro says that when the commissary of police arrived at Mount Vullcr-
ienlie asked for Colonel Henry's vnlise
and the razor which he committed suicido with. Ho was told that thoy
had been sent to the minister of war.
This extraordinary proceeding could
not fail to bo commented upon here,
whero rospoct to legal formality is
carried to such superstitious extent
thnt tho poople would leavo a man
hanging rather than not to wait* for
the arrival of the police. Naturally
enough, then, such detail as sending
the razor to the minister of war makes
tho peoplo ask why.
Tho Eclair, referring to the mutter,
says :*!
"This controversy bus shown us
long ago to what depth certain individuals can descend, so we aro not sur
prised to   read that the suicide of Colonel Henry wns perhaps murder.''
Tbo turn of the affair here, however, has been so startling that it is
not astonishing that* peoplo are ready
to listen to the most far-fetched ideas.
What the ordinary public sees in the
matter is thnt from a question of
treason, tha Dreyfus case has become a
national peril. What wouder, therefore, that one melo-dramatic incident
moro is credulously believed.
Tho man in the  street is in favor of
revision.    He sees a thread of  connection running  through   the affair from
the accusation  of   the   Jew, Dre.yfus,
being  a traitor and his condemnation
to  thc  forgery of  documents to prove
him   guilty,   the   arrest   of    Colonel
Henry and the suppression of the latter !
ns    an     inconvenient   witness.    This I
Shows you how passion  seems to blind |
people hero and even to drive common
souse   from   their  minds   the instant
they  begin   to  consider   the  Dreyfus
case.
J The Petit Republiquo says lhat the
afternoon of tlio day Colonel Henry
was arrested he was visited in his cell
by au officer who remained alone with
the prisoner a considerable time. The
minister of war says Colonel Henry
wns not* visited by anyone.
B The Petit Republiquo, however, refuses to accept the denial and says that
in 1894 Colonel Paty du Clam entered
Dreyfus' cell and offered him a revolver in order that ho might commit
suicide. Dreyfus refused the revolver,
proclaiming his innocence. The Petit
Republique asks if the officer who entered Colonel Henry's cell was not
charged with a similar duty. It even
regards the insistance with which the
minister of war denies that any suoh
visit was paid to the prisoner as confirming the rumor, or, at any rate,
giving it importance.
MR.    BLOWITZ'S  REPORT.
Loudon, Sept. 4.���M. De Blowitz,
the Paris correspondent of the Times,
telegraphs that he bus obtained tlie
views of a "distinguished German"
on the Dreyfus situation. This individual admitted that "Germany, by
speaking out, could perhaps clear up
the Dreyfus affair,'' but he added that
"the interests of the nation are superior to those of any man and if Germany were listened to, General Boisdefvro could not an hour remain at the
head of tlio staff, wBeretfc Germans
ought to wish to have him stay there
as long a possible.''
M. Blowitz says: '' General De
Boisdefvre.'s shortcomings are fully
understood here in France. There was
even an idea of sending him ns French
ambassador to St. Petersburg, a post
ho desired,but tho incident of the Zola
trial mado his retention as chief of
stuff imperative. Now, howover, tho
Germans no longer huvc a motive to
keep silence.''
Proceeding to relate from inside
knowledge tho history of the forgeries
of Colonel Schwartzkoppcns' (lute
German military attache in Paris)
handwriting, the Times correspondent
says tho work wns so cleverly done
as to deceive Schwartzkoppcns himself, who, when he became awaro of
it, was unable to denounce it, owing
to the introduction of certain names.
M. DeBlowitz arrives at this conclusion : " It is absolutely impossible
that Lieutenant Colonel Honry should
bavo attained the necessary professional dexterity. Tho actual forgery
must be sought elsewhere, though it
is likely enough thut Henry coucocted
tho phrases. Discovery would not be
difficult and would elict the whole
truth.''
STILL UNDECIDED.
Paris, Sept. 4.���Figaro, referring to
tho latest developments iu the Dreyfus
cose, says:
"Yesterday the consultation between
Brisson, president of the conueil and
minister of tho interior; Cavignac,
minister for war, and Suarrien, minister of justice, did not result in a solution of tho problem. The ministers are
of the opinion that the government
will not tako the initiative in the
matter of a revision of the Dreyfus
case, hut will wait until the meeting
of tho chambers, unless Madame Dreyfus presents a demand in legal form."
Guulois demands tlie intervention of
President Enure.

New York, Sept. ii.���Fifty dead and

record of the heat in old New York todny. The sun beat relentlessly on the
sweltering city all day long; night felt
almost like dny. A cold wave accompanied by a thunder storm is the prediction for tomorrow night, but until
then no relief is expected. The highest
point reached by the thermometer today was at 2 o'clock, when tho mercury
registored 113 degrees. The humidity
averaged 85 per cent.
LIPTON^ CHALLENGE.
Now York, Sept. 4.���The committee
representing tho Royal Ulster Yacht
Club and Sir Thomas Lipton" which
arrived in this city yesterday on tlie
Britannia,with the exception of Major
Sharman-Crawford,met tho New York
Yacht Club's committee iu the clubhouse of tho latter today and presented
Liptou's challenge to compete for the
America cup, now held by tho New
York Yacht club.
London, Sept. il.���Tho report was current today that Great Britain and
Germany had signed a treaty of alliance for Germany's support in Egypt.
It is said that Great Britain will
recognize Germany's claim to Syria as
an outlet for her surplus population.
Mr. Balfour, when questioned on tho
subject this afternoon, absolutely declined to discuss the reports in circulation regarding an Anglo-German alliance. Count Von Hntzfeldt, the German ambassador, who was believed to
have left London, wus again at the
foreign office this afternoon. It is reported on tlie stock exchange that the
Anglo-German alliance or understanding relates to the British purchase of
Deiagoa bay, with Germany assenting.
As a result Kaffir and Portugese securities are booming.
Syria is a division of Asiatic Turkey
wliich includes Palestine, estimated to
cover an area of about 146,000 square
miles. It has a population of about
3,750,000, mostly Mohammedans, but
including about 350,000 Greek Christ-
ains, 30,000 Maronites and Roman
Catholics, 175,000 Jews nnd 48,000
Druses.
AFFIRMED IN ENGLAND.
London, Spot, y.���Tho Pall Mall Gazette this afternoon says that it is satisfied that a general Anglo-German
agreement has been reached to act together in various quarters of tho
world. Tho praper adds that it has
verified yesterday's information, and
as an instance of when Germany's support will prove exceedingly useful it
points out that the fall of Omdurman
will chango Great Britain's position in
Egypt, and that in tho faco of inevitable French and Russian resentment
"Germany will be useful as un active
guaranteer of our permanent occupation. ''
EFFECT OF THE TREATY.
Loudon. Sept. 4.���Tho Berlin correspondent of the Observer says :
The Anglo-German relations are tho
topic of the day. They aro discussed,
too, in a friendly way, that testifies to
tho great change recently effected in
German public opinion toward England. Any agreement concerning
South Africa is likely to meet with
popular approval.
An ^identification of German and
British policy in South Africa has long
been desired in financial circles having
heavy stakes in tho Transvaal. Tho
details of tho agreement nre still unknown to the public, except that the
arrangement concerns Delngoa bay. In
any caso thero will bo no moro proclamations of Gorman sympathy with
the Dutch element. Apart from South
Africa the arrangement appears to refer to Ohina and the German sphere of
interest there. It does not affect Germany's position toward Russia or
other powers, and there is no question
of an offensive or defensive alliance.
The agreement concerns exclusively
colonial questions.
DENIED IN GERMANY.
Berlin, Sept. 4.���Officials of the
German foreign office assert tliat tho
reports of an offensive and defensive
alliance between Great Britain and
Germany aro entirely without foundation.
The National Zeitung says: "The
reports of nn offensive und defensive
alliance are unfounded. The British
government is not in a position to
concludo such uu alliance, nor does
there exist* in outhoritive quarters iu
Germany the slightest inclination to
completely indentify our own foreign
policy with that of another power.
There can only be somo colonial ar
rangeinont, the relations of the powers
in other respects remaining unaltered,
lt must bo particularly understood
that Russian interests aro in no wise
prejudiced. "
Tho Cologne Gazette says that it believes tho agreement is merely an arrangement for nn Anglo-German loan
to Portugal.

TRYING THE BACK DOOR.
When one wishes   to visit   another's
house or property in   order  to look   il
over to see if  anything   can   bc mnde
out of it, he does not  go  through  unknown  lanes,   over   obstructions   and
fences to find the back   door.    He goes
by the well beaten  front wny, assured
that that is  the   easier  and  most expeditious way.    It   wus  because   meu
did not observe this   direct manner  of
intercourse   tliat   so   many harrowing
tales   are   heard of   lhe  hardships  of
Yukon-bound parties   on   the   various
trails.    Tliey tried to enter the Yukon
by the   back door   when   the   straight
path to the   front door wns plain   und
opeu before thein     Somo tried tho Edmonton  route, some the wny   by Ashcroft, and for   one   thut   got,   through
ten   came   lo  grief.    Whatever   these
routes may become   in   the  future, at
prosont they are not practicable to the
Yukon   or   to   Atlin   lake.    For   long
distances the trail   may bo good, then
thero como formidable stretches which
try tho  mettle of the strongest men to
get over.    Horses   drop   on theni   and
often   men   drop,    too.     Supplies   aie
thrown  away as  loo oumbersome and
if tho trailer get through   at  ull, it   is
commonly at,  the   sacrifice  ot   all  he
had.    At present there is one way and
oue   way only,   into  the  Yukon   and
Northern Cassiar, wherein is Atlin lako,
and that way is hy the coast, tho front
door and   tho  open  door.    Thoso who
look for adventure my  find what suits
them on tho overland  trails, but thoso
who moan business  go the most direct
way   about   it.    Back   door   methods
have boen shown by the experience of
those who have tried them not   to  1 e
good methods.
But why try the Klondike, Which at
the best is a doubtful venture to many.
This province presents more favorable
opportunities of mukiug money and
securing a competence to those who
are active and industrious, than any
other portion of the Dominion 01 the
United States, nnd theso opportunities
will present themselves for many
years to come.
CHEAP COAL  FOR NELSON.
The Nelson district will hear with
gratification that the Crow's Nest
Pass extension of tho Canadian Pacific
railway will bo opened to Nelson in
about two months. This means much
to this city nnd tho surrounding
couutry. It will redrce the timo of
transit between here and eastern points
fully two days, furnish a direct route
iuto the Kootenays and greatly
simplify the distribution of freight.
As it is at present two sides of a long
triangle must bo traversed bofore, say
Calagry, can bo reached. The new
way will furnish an almost direct line
there, and as it will bo nil rail with
easy gradients, expeditious trips may
be looked for. This lino was needed
long ago and nothing could have boon
to bettor purpose in giving easy access
to the richest portion of British Columbia, tho valley ot tho Columbia and
the valley of the Kootenay, and when
it becomes a reality the pooplo of this
district and others which it will bring
into closo communication, may look for
increased businoss and brisker work
than ever in the mines.
But of as weighty importance to
Nelson is tlie fact that the new lino
will put this city within close and
profitable roach of the great coal
measures in the Crow's Nest Pass,now
being operated and ready to ship the
product as soon us llie railway oan
carry it. By parliamentary enactment
the compnny cannot chargo more than
,|2 a ton for coal at the pit mouth and
this moans that coal will be laid down
in Nelson for about half what it is
sold for uow, that is to say, for $6 or ,$fi a
ton. Not only this, the Crow's Nest
coal has beon shown by analysis to lo
a superior coking coal and with a
Biipply of cheap material of this description within easy each, smelters
will be able to run much moro economically, to the advantage of all
miners who employ them.
cheap means of transportation the
quarrels of tho railway companies
brought within reach of tho public.
Meu allured by prospects of speedy fortune in the Klondyke and having the
wherewithal to take them there, set
out from all parts of Canada and the
United States, and for many months
the railways did an enormous business. These travellers choose different
routes to the land of gold, consequently
remote parts of the country have beeu
opeued up, made accessible and populated. Unsuccessful in thoir quest for
gold many have turned in other directions and much land has been taken
up, especially in the territories. In
the northern part of this province
there aro towns to bo built, roads to bo
made, railways lo be constructed,
timber to be cut, and last and most
important, mines to lie opened and exploited and these taken into consideration it is almost oertain that the
province, will retain lhe population it
has und year by year attract large additions to it. Reduced railway fares
will not only prove advantageous to
the province in enabling thousands to
reach it at small expense, but the railway companies will derive much profit
from the increased business tlie low
rate will attract. The railway com-
pnnies must run their trains and it
costs them as much to run a half-filled
train as it does a crowded one, so the
more passengers they have the more
money they secure, and cheap fares
mean plenty of passengers.
The Canadian Pacific railway can
afford to carry passengers cheaper than
the transcontinental lines in tlie
United States for several reasons. In
the first place the Canadian Hue is under one management from ocean to
ocean, and it has not to pny any percentages to other lines on its traffic. It
boards and lodges its passengers, having hotels whore it would not pay to
rim a dining car, and by this means
it farther augments its income. On
tho other hand the transcontinental
routes through the United States territory are mado up of different lines
of railway, all of which must, have a
percentage on passengers carried over
their respective roads, and as they ull
hold out for a high percentage it is
easily seen that it is difficult to maintain a low through rate. But it is to
the Canadian Pacific railway that Ihis
provinoe looks mainly and, therefore, it is hoped that the difficulty
which gives cheap rates to the coast
will not soon be adjusted.

THK   PLEBISCITE  FARCE.
LOW RAILWAY RATES.
There is soino talk of tho Canadian
Pacific railway coming to an arrangement witli its rivals under which
transcontinental rates will be restored
to what they were before tho railway
War began. It is hoped tliat this report is not true. Tlie reduced fares
have been most serviceable to the west
in enabling many to remove from tlio
east who otherwise would not have
come. Consequently there has been a
largo addition to the population in
this Province and in the territories
aiid Manitoba, a high percentage of
which  is attributable  solely  to the
The prohibition plebiscite excites
little interest* on thin coast and if tlie
majority were consulted it would be
found that tlie negative is strongly in
tho lead. The reason of this is that a
mining country, more moral in other
respects, perhaps, than the pretentious
('(immunities in tho east, has no time
to give to fads of any kind. The east
may work itself into an excited state
over the question, but the blague and
bluster which resound from the contending camps in Ontario would excite
only laughter and ridicule here, aud
ridicule is fatal to any cause. Still
the taking of the voto has its attractions. It affords temperance humbugs,
who nre mostly narrow und arbitrary
in thought and argument,an opportunity of handling a " campaign fund, '
contributed by the fatuous ones who
think that tliey are doing a praiseworthy thing in sustaining these vapid
individuals beforo tho public, and it
also gives a lot of needy "workors" on
the side of the liquor interest a chance
of participating in the "fund" wliich
the liquor men are always constrained
to furnish for emergencies such as this.
So both sides will farotwell while the
light lasts.
There is little need to go into a dis
cussion ns to whether or not a drunkard can be mado a sober man by act
of parliament, and it, is a waste of time j
to contend over whnt the Bible does or
does not say on tho subject of strong i
drink. It is generally held that the
drink habit is an evil, a curse, to humanity, but the trallic in drink is so
closely woven into tlie social and commercial fabric of the country th it it
eould not be eliminated without disorganizing and disjointing business
everywhere, by wliich great loss
would fall upon ninny honest and inoffensive persons. Is the country prepared not only to make this saoriflce
hut to destroy a source of public revenue for wliich there cnn be no substi
lute? If so, well. But the day that
Canada comes under the rule of prohibition nonentities and temperance
wranglers.it will bn a country it would
bo well for freedom-loving men lo
leave nt once.

ANOTHER DROWNING FATALITY
The body of the late Kenneth Mo-
Diarmid, who was drowned'at Sloean
Junction on Friday last, has not yet
been recovered. The deceased was a
young man of ahout 26 years of age, a
native of Martinville, Out., and had
been in the country only a short time.
He. was employed by H. W. Simpson
& Co., clearing llie right-of-way for
Ibe West Kootenay Power & Light
compnny.
The particulars of the accident aro
ns follows: McDiarmid wns fording
the river on horse hack. When the
horse reached the shore lie stumbled
and it is supposed the rider jerked
his head around with the result that
before lhe animal could regain his
fooling hoth were swept away into the
swift current. The accident occurred
at the mouth of the Slocan river and
was witness by a number of people
who were unable to render any assistance. The lirovincial police at Nelson
were notified of tlie accident and have
informed the relatives of the deceased,
of the snd occurrence.
SMELTING IN   NKLSON.
Dr. Langhiiiiiiner of Seattle has arrived in Nelson from Rossland to examine the Referendum group on Eaglo
creek for a London syndicate. The
dootor is very much interested in
smelting and more especially lead
smelling. He considered that Nelson
was the natural smelting center of the
Kootenays, and that Rossland lacked
ilie necessary natural facilities. He
expressed wonder that factories for
manufacturing lead products were not.
established here, thus making a local
market for the lead from the Slocan
mines. He thought there would bo
considerable money in such a venture.
Dr. Langhammer went out to the
Referendum group yesterday and will
bn away from Nelsou for a couple of
days.
THl'l PROHIBITION  CAMPAIGN.
Tlie Rev. A. E, Green Gives a Sketch
of   His  Work.
A representative of The Miner snw
the Kev. A. 10. Green, provincial
organizer of tlie prohibition movement, for n few moments last night*
after the evening BOrvice at the Presbyterian church.
Mr. Green has been making a tour
nf tlie interior for tlie purpose of
organizing locnl committees to carry
on the campaign in view of the approaching plebiscite. He has already
visited Enderby, Armstrong, Veron,
Penticton, the various towns in tho
Kettle river valley, and Rossland.
From here Mr. Green will go to
Kaslo, where he will address a meeting
on Tuesday evening.
Mr. Green state lhat* he. wns very
hopeful of the result of tlie work, and
tlint lie had not encountered that hostility to his mission he had been led
to expect. He had observed at first a
good deal of apathy and scepticism as
to nny practical results from the
plebiscite, but he thought that was
passing away. Personally, he. believed
tlie liberal government was in earnest.
In the event of any prohibitive legislation following the plebiscite, Mr.
Green said he would be opposed to
those engaged in the manufacture or
sale of liquors receiving any compensation whatever. Mr. Green addressed a large congregation last* night
nt tho Methodist church, his subject
being temperance. It was also his
intention to deliver an address at the
Presbytherian church after the usual
service, but owing to the small number who remained the meeting was
postponed.
HIS LAST   RESORT.

A GOOD HINT.
There is near Ballina, in Ireland, a
little stone on the brink of a creek
upon which is carved this interesting
inscription intended as a warning to
travelers: "When tliis stone is out of

SWEDEN'S RAILROADS.
Though Sweden's first railroad was
opened but 48 years ago, that country
now has more railways, in proportion

YMIR MINING NEWS.
Ymir, Sept. 8.���(Special Correspoiid-
oneo)���Messrs.fcDanbey J& Parker aro
now interested in the Big Horn group
of chums situated on tlie diyidejjbe-
tween Porcupine and Hidden creeks,
nbout nine miles south from Ymir.
Five men with supplies were started
out this morning toj further develops
the property, which it' proved satisfactory will in all probability be
Blocked. Mr. S. DesBrisay, merchant
of Ymir, is largely interested in this
group"aud up till the last few days had
beon doing quite a little work on these
claims. Tliis property,whioh was only
staked last. July, has as fine a showing as niiything in the camp.
Messrs. Dabncy & Parker have let u
contract for the sinking of a shaft 100
feet deep on the Evening Star group.
This group adjoins tlie Dundee mine
and was purchased from Tom Flynn
and otliers a few months ago by a
syndicate headed by Dabncy & Parker.
Great things are expected of this property as the assays from the surface,
and from tiie bottom of the prospect
hole,havo been more than satisfactory.
The Tamarac mine owned and operated by the KiMiieth (fold Mining company is ShoWiUg up splendidly. The
shaft is now down 188 feet and tho ore
body which is gradually widening
measures four feet across. The present
contract will bring the shaft down to
tho 200 foot level, and, as soon as this
is completed a further contract will be
let to drift 100 feet either way on the
vein and also for tho sinking of a
further 100 feet on tlie sliaft.
MINING NOTES.
T. B. Smith and M. J. Burns, who
have!beon injehnrge of the development
of the Lnllus mine in the Trout lake
district, havo returned to Spokane,

deals are about   to   be   consummated,
A   mere   prospect     located     by   four
Swedes aliout three miles   from   Torut

If the present plans of the Silver '���
Cup people materialize and they arc I
able to raft their ores down tho Lardeau river to Kootenay lako it will be
of inestimable value to the district,
which is hampered now ouly by lack
of transportation facilities.
At a depth of 2lii! feet, in the bottom of the shaft of the White Bear in
the Rossland camp, a strike of black
hornblende, mixed with copper and
iron carrying some gold values, has
boen encountered. There is quite a
chute of it. It is identical witli lhe
same character of rock found in the
850-foot level of the Le Roi. It gives
values of from $6 to $84 per ton, and is j
lhe most promising striko that has
yet been made iu the White Bear.
The Commander near Rossland. recently bonded, has been unwatered to
the 100-foot level, and a machino is
now at work in the drift at that point.
Tbe machine is working in about four
feet of excellent ore. W. J. Harris,
