the quality both in the live stock and

improving year by year, an indication
that the Canadian agriculturist has
the brains and the quick wit to benefit
by the splendid opportunities tbat tire
offered him both oy the Dominion and
Provincial governments to qualify

Canada will be able to more than hold
her own in the markets of the world.
A further matter for congratulation
is the annually increasing interest
taken by the general public in these
events. Not only have the one or two
big fairs largely increased their attendance, but the mere local shows attract
growing local interest while the competition in every class grows keener,
all of which goes tu .show the splendid
progress our country is making.

Paris, Sept. 27.���M. Sarricu, minister of justice, communicated to tho
counsel of ministers today llie terms
of the letter which he will present to
the court of cassation, demanding the
revision of the trial of Dreyfus tind
iilsii submit ted (he circular issued to
the procurer general, in view of the
energeric measures which are to bo
taken fur the repression of till attacks
upon the army in publio meetings,
ere. The present understanding is that
there is to be a re-establishnient of the
ministry.
Tlio revisionist newspapers are rejoicing over yesterday's decision of the
cabinet revising the Dreyfus case and
the anti-Dreyfuses are correspondingly
crestfallen.
Lti Voltaire says: "Now we havo
entered the path of loyalty."
The Auroro says: "The government
which supports justice and truth has
arisen."
L'lutransigante and La Libre Parole
both indulge in violent* attacks upon
Premier Brisson and Lo Petit Journal
declares: "We are iu the presence of
a political revision conceived by
politicians and organized like a conspiracy."
The Figaro says that the action of
the cabinet will result in quieting
public opinion and that henceforth
agitation will be both criminal and
stupid.
Le Matin praises the government for
its courage, but* at tho same time express fear that the anti-revision campaign will continue livelier than
ever.
SHOT BY BANK BROBBBRS.
Flora, Ind., Sept. 27.���Between 12
and II o'clock this morning the safe of
the Farmer's Bank was blown open by
robbers who secured close to $10,000
and made good their escape. Cashier
William Lemon, who was aroused by
noise of the explosion, appeared on
the scene, while the robbers were still
at work and was shot* and it is believed will die. A posse of citizens
followed the robbers for some distance,
but they got away on a handcar.
Bloodhounds are now on their trail.
There were two terrific explosions and

B.    C.   PIONEER DEAD.
St. Catharines, Out., Sept. 27.���A
dreadful cyclone swept* over Merriton,
10 miles from this city, yesterday killing three persons and injuring many
others. Tho dead aro Clara O'Neill,
employed in the Lincoln paper mills ;
Mra. John Bickley and Frankie Moore.
The Lincoln paper mills were uu
roofed as also was the power house of
the Acetylene works, the Orange
Springhall, public school, llie English
and Presbyterian churches.
A detailed description of the disaster at. Merriton says a most exciting
and pitiable scene of disaster was witnessed at the school house, the roof of
which was taken completely ofi by the
wind. Forty puuils wore in the building when the storm broke out, bnt the
presence of mind of the. teacher, Miss
Ida Smith, undoubtedly saved Ihe.
lives of many of them, which would
oherwise have been lost. When she
saw the tornado coining, Miss Smith
got her pupils out of the. building and
bade theni scatter for their lives. The
litle ones ran in every direction, but
oven then were in some cases overtaken and struck down by the flying
timbers of the roof, which fell in great
masses all about them. Others ran
homeward as quickly as they could
and by good fortune escaped death,
wliich threatened thein on every side.
Those who had been struck lay under
piles of timber and splintered wood
unable to extricate themselves tind crying in fright or on account of injuries
they had received. Frankie Moore
was the only child killed outright,
being found pined beneath the timbers
of the fallen roof, while beside her lay
little Bessie Kerr with a broken leg
and screaming piteously. She was
rescued with difficulty by many willing hands and taken to tho hospital,
while the dead body of her little companion was removed from beneath its
fatal burden. Soon there were many
people on the scene anxious to hell) or
half crazed with anxiety for their little
ones; Ihe relief was great when it was
found that the list of causalties was
no greater, as it had been feared that
many of the children would have perished.
Mrs. John Bickley was killed while
running along a sidewalk at a point
where the destruction was greatest.
She was evidently hit by a flying timber or bricks. Hundreds of people
watched tho funnel shaped monster
travelling over the canal and over
Merriton, where its funnel end could
bo seen scattering broadcast destruction. It scooped up water out of the
canal as it passed over and its gyrations made it appear as a thing of life.
It could be seen sending down its
slender tentacles,as it carried its awful
work to moveable things on the ground
beneath it.
Merriton shows the terrible ordeal
it has passed through in a most awful
j manner. Kindling wood is scattered
I over and beyond the path of the cloud
for many hundreds of yards, demolished
houses, torn roofs and upturned sidewalks testifying to the terrible force
of the storm.
IT VISITS TONAWANDA.
Tonawanda, N.   Y., Sept.   27.���The
tornado wliich wrought   such   terrible
havoc across the border in St. Catherines   and   Merriton, struck   this   city
with terrible force at   1 o'clock yesterday afternoon.   The amount or damage (lone will   exceed 1100,000. ��� Many
people are   homeless   and   several   arc

| result of   injuries sustained during the

of the steamer Vancouver from Montreal, and upou the landing of her passengers followed a woman ashore from
the steamer. The ollicers maintain
total secrecy regarding the person, refusing to give her name or discuss tho
case beyond saying that sho is suspected of murder in Canada. The woman boarded a train for London. Inspector Lament following her in the
next compartment with instructions to
arrest her if she went to a house

charged with being concerned in the
murder of Emma Gill, of Southington,

Stamford, Conn., Sept. 27.���State
Attorney Saumel Fessenden was seen

information tlmt would confirm the reported arrest of Dr. Nancy Guilford at
Liverpool, who is wanted for alleged
connection with the dismemberment
of Emma Gill's body and other serious
charges in connect inn with tbe death
of the young girl.
Fessenden said he had received a
telegram   from   Liverpool announcing
that a person answering llie description of Mrs. Dr. Nancy Guilford had
left the steamer Vancouver upon its
arrival at Liverpool this morning and
had gone to London under police surveillance. Mr. Fessenden immediately oommunicated
with Governor Cook and at his
request the governor asked tlie stale
[department at Washington to request
the United States ombassy at London
to provide for tite provisional arrest
until the proper papers could reach
there. Mr. Fessenden said he has since
learned that the state department had
cable 1 London as requested.    The state
attorney said thai from information
placed in his hands by the detectives
lie has had at work on the case, he believed that the woman under surveillance in London is Dr. Nancy Guilford.
The Peace Commissioners Instructed  to
Make a Fight for Sovereignity
in the Fhillipines.
Madrid, Sept. 27.���Tho cabinet last
evening had under discussion Captain
General Blanco's despatch concerning
American claims in connection with
the evacuation of Cuba. Duke Alnia-
dovar do Rio, minister of foreign
affairs, states that the Spanish peace
commissioners havo been instructed to
contend strongly for the integrity of
Spanish sovereignity in the Philippines, on the ground that the protocol
between Spain and the United States
was signed before Manila capitulated,
and also to make a linn stand regarding the Cuban debt and the Philippine
loan of 189B, if Luzon l.e coded to
America. . Should lhe United States
prove more exacting than is expected,
the commissioners have power to make
all possible concessions, political aud
commercial, compatible with tho retention of Spanish sovereignity in the
Philippines, but in the event of losing
a portion of the islands, they are instructed to resist to the utmost tho
attempt of the United States to claim
the right of preference over other
powers, should Spain desire to sell or
cede the remainder of tho islands. It
is understood, however, that all instructions are ouly ad referendum.
Most of the commissioners and attaches speak EngHsb
THE   UNFRIENDLY   FRENCH.
Paris, Sept. 27.���Whilo the reception
accorded tho United States peace commission here was all that could bo desired and whilo tho French foreign
office has taken great pains to treat
American and Spanish commissioners
in precisely tho same manner, it must
bo admitted that the general atmosphere of Paris, especially in the
diplomatic sphere, does not incline towards Americans. Tho genoral impression here is that the American
commissioners have instructions to
provide for the retention of Manila tind
tho island of Luzon, "and for the
commissioners to pretend to negoitate
is a f'aicc, " said a prominent diplomat.
Ho continued: "America will put
herself diplomatically, in the wrong
when she exceeds the provisions of tho
protocol which both nations signed. I
know the. Spaniards have come prepared to make concessions, but if
Americans instructions are of an uncompromising nature, which is generally believed here to be the case, you
can rest assured that the work of the
oommission will be futile. The Spaniards will retire and tho Americans
will at least have to threaten a resumption of hostilities before she will
gain her point."
The American commission, for tho
first time, since its appointment, met*
as a body today for two hours in the
drawing room of the Continental
hotel.

his authority he thrust Mr. Bulyea
and his commendable regulations aside
and declared for free trade in whiskey.
This lasted until tho passage of the
Xtikon bill, which confirmed the right
of the territories to control the liquor
traffic. This was Mr. Bnlyea's vindication. Major Walsh has heen placed
in an unfavorable lifjht by these revelations, and thoy are sufficient to warrant Premier Haultain in asking for
redress ttt Ottawa, which ho has declared to be his intention.
'I'lie festivities which have attended
the holding of the international conference at Quebec havo been too much
lor the American representatives and
they are anxious to shift tho scene of

the health of the Americans. The lirst
thought was tlmt the commissioners

descent of Clark Wallace, but the telegraph shows that it is merely a case
of too much pie.

Iii order to test tho veracity of the
Rossland Minor in the assertion that
the Crow's Nest Pass railway will follow a route to he surveyed via Salmo
and Trail and will not be built into
Nelsou, tis provided in tho agreement,
Tlio Miner yesterday communicated
with Mr. T. G. Shaughuessv, vice-
president of the Canadian Pacific vail-
way. The message which we sent
reached the gentleman at Smith's Falls
and elicted the information that tho
Rossland Miner's assertion was without foundation. This is sufficient. It
is safe to take Mr. Shaughnessy's
word as against the wild statements of
an untrustworthy newspaper.
Tho Rossland Miner knows, if it
knows anything, that on April 1, 1898,
Mr. Shaughnessy wrote to the president of the Rossland board of trade,
011 the subject of the diversion of the
Crow's Nest Pass line from the foot of
Kootenay lake to Trail, instead of
building via Nelson as contemplated
by the agreement with the government. Mr. Shaughnessy concluded 1 s
follows:
I do not think we would he inclined
to consider any departure from our
original plans, nor uro we of the opinion that any practicable route tor a
railway can lie found between the
south end of Kootenav lake anil the
Columhia river via llie Salmon river
without going South into United
States territory.
In the face of this the Rossland
Miner persists in publishing, tis wide
as its circulation will allow, the falsity
that the Crow's Nest line will not
come to Nelson. The Rossland Miner
is insane.
Col. Baker says that the dismissal
of the Turner ministry will he appealed to the Dominion government.
��� If Col. Baker stays in England until
he j;i ts hack to office by the appeal
route he will die far from the vacant
lots of his new townsite.
It is said that ''the pen is mightier
than the sword. " It may be, but it is
not so renumerative. In the short
space of twelve hours in the Soudan
men with swords earned $123,000 for
General Kitchener and elevated him
to the peerage.

COMMUNICATIONS.
MR. BULYEA AND MAJOR WALSH
Mr. G. H. Y. Bulyea, member of
the North West executive,who was out
as a commissioner to the Yukon to
regulate the. liquor traffic there according to tho laws of the North West
Territories government, makes serious
charges against Major Walsh, formerly
administrator of tho Yukon, which
may be thc causo for enquiry at
Ottawa. Mr. Bulyea is a gentleman
of probity and honor and is held in
high esteem in the territories, therefore, what he has to say ahout his ex
pcrieuco in thc Yukon is worthy of
attention.
It having   been   reported   to the territorial   government   that    there   was
goneral violation of   the   liquor law a
Dawson, Mr.   Bulyea was sent thither
to enforce order in this res] t and put
tlm traffic under license regulation, tho
only way in which it can he properly
regulated. He carried out his instructions, enforcing early and Sunday closing and bringing the sale of liquor
into order,when Major Walsh appearod
on the scene and declared that, the territories had uothing to do with liquor
regulations in the Yukon, they being
in the hands of the Dominion government, which was nboul to issue an
order-in-council on the subject, until
wliich time in one could sell liquor
without being   chi to account.
This was a Btrango position for an
officer of tlie crown tn take, considering that Mr. liulyca had acted in the
interests of good order aud served to
better conditions in the far northern
eity, where the liquor trafflo liad been
quite unrestricted until he brought if
into subjection. It was stranger still
when it is known that the jurisdiction
of the territorial government in these
parts is upheld by statute which an
order-in-council could not Buperecede,
a fact which Major Walsh must have
had knowledge of. The proper course
for the latter, 0110 would think, would
have been to let Mr, Bulyea's regulations stand until   lie   laid  received in-
To ihe Editor of Thc Miner:
Sir:���I note with pleasure the remark made in your suhleader of date
with refernece to the establishment
of a government smelter in this district. I am only a week or two resident iu Nelson and in B. C., there
fore it is not my place to discuss the
merits or otherwise of government
monopoly or the subsidization of private companies excepl to state that in
most British Colonits the government
is the peoplo. and therefore government monopoly is practically monopoly
liy the peoplo svhich is really what the
people want. However, apart from
this there is a matter which your paragraph suggests which I think should
I r brought before your legislature.
through your member, as early as possible, namely, the establishment of a
government metallurgical experimental
works. That a district* whose population numbers so many thousands
should he without such a plant is a
matter of surprise to nie.a Maorilander.
There is hardly a mining eamp of any
size in New Zealand which is without
or which is not within reach of such
a concern where samples of ores up to
live tons are assayed. Tested as to tlie
best method of economically extracting the valuable metals contained
therein. Another step which the department of mines might undertake is
the establishment of custom mills in
out districts for the treatment of ores.
There must bo (judging by thc general
appearance of the country) scores of
places in this province whero there aro
payable reefs unable to he profitably
worked because of transportation
charges. Thc object of my letter is
simply to provoke a discussion which
might bring about something practical in this direction. Tho Kootenay
has undoubtedly immense possibilities
liefore it but it seems a pity that you
should take 10 years to bring the richness of the country beforo tlio outside
world when a considerably less time
would do it. Trusting that some abler
pen than miue, will take this matter
up and thanking von ill anticipation, I

for the farmers to sow crop: and iu
February the ground will be prepared

OANADIANISM.
LACE OF ACCOMODATIONS,
The growth of Canadian feeling is
the theme of every observant visitor
to our shores. Once it* was customary
for tho people of British Columbia and
of the Maritime provines to apply the
name Canada to Ontario and Quebec
only. That custom is dying out. The
Canadian spirit* is as strong ill the
limbs of the country as in the heart.
Now comes an opportunity to give
signal proof of the sincerity of ihis
Canadianism. A great fire has do-
vastcd a British Columbia city. Hundreds of buildings are destroyed, a
thouand people homeless, the fruits of
years ot industry and enterprise swept
away. Lot tho peoplo of Canada show
by their actions that Ihey look upon
New Westminster as a Canadian city,
the loss as a Canadian loss, the sufferers as fellow-Canadians.���Toronto

Groat Inconvenience Caused by an Insufficient Court Room.
It has been lone; evident to till those
whom business or necessity bring to
the court house, I hat the accomodations
in the court room are woefully insufficient for the business wliich has
to he transacted there.
Tho present assizes have brought
this out into strong relief. His lordship, when trying a case is constrained to como down from his remote
bench, and take his seal at the table
intended for the clerk of Iho court,
who, in turn, must* sit tit the already
overcrowded barrister's table.
There is, if is true, a witness box.
hearing a strong resemblanco to an undersized pulpit, but either from its
position, or from the acoustic defects
of the building, its occupant is quite
inaudible to the jury. The result is
that the witness is perched upon a
chair, and the chair upon a table, and
from that conspicuous aud undignified
position he has to givo his evidence
Needless to say lhere is no accommodation for the press, though thoso ill
authority have promised to make such
provision as they can.
Iu this connection it may be remarked, that the nighl beforo last,
when the electric light retired for the
night at the usual hour, his lordship
was obliged to call for lamps. Only
two wero to bo found in tho building,
although it is nol long since lamps
wero exclusively used al tho court
house,    Whero are the others?
The conditions of the court house is
a blot upon our otherwise up-to-date
