 SORBY'S HARBOR SCHEME AGAIN  ELATES   VICTORIANS.  Victoria, May HI.���Messrs. Trior and  Earle telegraphed from Ottawa today  that .minister Tarte had promised to have  a bill forming a board of harbor commissioners for Victoria, put through this  session, and the advocates of the Sorby  scheme for spending millions to provide  a harbor big enough for Montreal are so  elated that Sorby i.s to start for Ottawa  at once to explain his plans There may  however, be disappointment,' when in due  course the Dominion government is asked  to 'equip the commissioners, witli funds  I'or this gigantic work.  .In the meantime the city council treat  very cavalierly the proposal made by  Henry Croft, on behalf of English capitalists, to spend a quarter of a million  dollars within a, year or two in reclaiming the James Bay mud flats. The syndicate asks for incorporation and a deed  of the property for fifty years ancl exemption from taxation.  Croft's syndicate would establish an  immense amusement garden on the English plan, with concert hall, fountains and flowers, and would erect  commercial kiosks along the bridge, which  they would erect across the bay, and  which bridge would be presented to the  corporation on the completion. It is a  very attractive scheme for immediate  realization, but half the aldermen treated  it coldly because it might interfere with  the Sorby dream, and one alderman solemnly protested that to collect its revenue  the company would have to erect a fence,  Jl,)r/it,..

It does not recognize any parallel between the Canadian  claim to Pyramid harbor and the United  States claim to Dyea and Skagway. To  the latter the title has never been questioned. Canada on the other hand never  asserted any claim to Pyramid harbor  until lately and has never been even in  temporary possession. The proposition  from the British side to declare a, neutral  strip of the country leading from the head  of the Lynn canal back across the mountain to the Canadian line has not coin-  mended itself to the state department,  wliich fails to see why the United States  should voluntarily render absolute title  to territory Avhieh it is contended belongs  to the United States.  and  a fence would be an eyesore,  matter comes up again next week.  The  Story of War From the East.  Victoria, May .31.���Details were  'brought by the steamer Kinshiu Maru,  which arrived this afternoon, of -warlike  'preparations in China to resist the Italian  occupation of San Mun, and probably the  further occupation of Shan Tung by Germany. A YPekin correspondent writes  that .Japan is diligently and quietly making war preparations as she did four  years ago, and taking measures to  strengthen her coast defenses, feeling  that a war Avith Russia in the near future  is unavoidable. J-i.ii.ssia is aware of Japan's intention to contest her in the east,  and fully recognizes the difficulty iu  which a Avar with Japan would place her,  especially as the Japanese navy approaches-that'of. her own in strength,  and that additional ships are in course of  construction in Europe. _���  International Ar-itration Promoters.

Perier..  KOOTENAY MINES AND MINING  The Last Day of the Old Order.  Yesterday Avas the last day for the old  order of things that has    continued   so  satisfactory  in the Slocan since its discovery.    Today the loAver scale of  Avages  goes into effect, piwided, always,   that  the mine owners can have their own AA'ay,'  but  the result so far is  that the entire  force of miners will refuse the cut offered  and hold out for the .$3.50 rate.    It is not  expected   the  contest  Avill   last long, as  thbre are many on both sides in ���favor' of  submitting  the  question to arbitration.  As yet tliere is but scant feeling on the  subject.    Many believe that were the example of the Athabasca company at Nelsoii followed, and a reduction made in the  price of board, the situation Avould soon  right itself.    One  dollar   for   each   and  every day is a high price to pay   for  board, and there should be margin Avhere-  iui to eifect a reduction.    Living in the  various toAvns, particularly here, is  too  high, and Avith a  lower scale of Avages  the merchants   should   OA'ercome    tlieir  1892-standard and descend to the modern  percentage of profit.    On a large number  of.-���; properties considerable  surface Avork  AA'ill be done, the men Avorking ten hours  at $3.50, so that there AA'ill not be an entire cessation of labor in the camps.    The  skilled labor will turn titer attention to  tlieir  oavu properties  and claims  and to  "prospecting,    aAA*aiting   the   time   Avhen  things   Avill   become    straightened   out.  The miners are keeping their  own counsel and  are maintaining  a quiet but determined  attitude, and  there is not the  slightest reason   to   anticipate   trouble.  For the OAvners'  part, they express  lio  anxiety   as to the  situation,  and  state  they can  secure all  the  skilled  miners  they   AA'ant   from   the   east.     HoAvever,  .apart from this, the effect  upon the general business of the camp is already felt.  The impending  loss in  Avages, ore  shipments, etc., Avill aggregate  a  large sum,  and  a   general   set-back    is   given   the  country.  YMIR   DISTRICT.  R. AV.

As  from all accounts, the report of S_ S,  Jfywl-j. tlie London .& B. 0.

It is not likely  that the mine will be operated again till  August.  SLOCAN   DISTRICT.  Though the Noble Five mine has been  shut down, the concentrator will be started  up, as the ore bins are full. There i.s  enough mineral on hand to keep the mill  going sonic months, and the Avater power  is now ample.  At the Slocan Star Arery little shipping  has been done i for a year, extensive developments having been carried out. The  result has been to give ample ore reserves  for tAvo years' stoping. The mill is running full capacity.  A good showing of. ore is reported at  the present time on the Queen Bess, the  ore.chute luwing Avidened to a full ten  feet of clean galena. The Queen Bess  ought to rival the Payne, Avith such an  immense body of shipping artielcY  Alex Smith of Kaslo, manager of the  Surprise, has this Aveek been looking  for likely purchases.

They  have an ore chute two to four feet wide,  extending several hundred feet on the  property.

I?Ai-is, May 31.���The closing scenes of  the Deroulede trial Avere of a decidedly  theatrical character. When Mai tro Fal-  ateuf had concluded his plea for the.accused, M. Deroulede rose and thanked his  "dear friends" for their excellent defence, and concluded by declaring his  readiness to repeat the words Avhieh had  Jed to the A*-_olent scenes just proA-iously  witnessed.

The hearing of the theft case of Regina  A'S. \V. D. Brewster occupied virtually the  entire sitting of the assize court yesterday.    This i.s a case Avliich is more or less  mixed up Avith the case of Regina vs. Sinclair, both men having been employed by  the Canadian Pacific raihvay in its freight  and express offices.    Between them they  are supposed   to   have   got  away  Avith  $1500.    Brewster's case came on first. He  was defended by A. 11. {McNeill, Q.C., of  Rossland.    The case for the crown AA'as  handled by deputy attorney-general McLean.    There were six counts iu  the indictment, all  of which   Avere  under the  head  of    theft,   the   aggregate  amount  alleged to have been  stolen  being something under $300.  The case Avas left with  a jury composed of Gilbert Stanley, foreman, Samuel Neelands, Thomas Lillie, C  3. Wilson, George A. Hunter, J. H. Wallace, George W.Steele, Robert Ince, David  Morris, C. D. J. Christie, E. P. Whalley,  and  R.  G.  O'Driscoll.     When  the case  Avas closed justice Drake charged strongly  against the prisoner and  the jurors retired  to consider their   verdict.     They  Avere out over an hour and a half.   They  found the  prisoner  guilty  upon  counts  No. 1, 2, 4 and 5, and not guilty on counts  No. 3 and 0.    The effect of this  Avas that  the prisoner was found  guilty  of omitting and   concurring  in the omission of  making entries in  the company's books,  but not  guilty  of theft.    The prisoner  Avill probably receive sentence upon the  conclusion of the criminal cases.  of the army. The jury Avas absent for  twenty-two minutes, during which time  the prisoners held a levee.

Bruno Avas then given his liberty.  ���In (.hci-case-of-Regina-A's-DaA'isrdeputy���  attorney-general McLean applied for a  warrant for the arrest of John Cunningham of Hosslaud, a materi-.il witness avIio  ha.d disregarded the subpoena to attend.  In the case of Licgiun \*s. O'Neill a similar application Avas made, the prisoner  William O'Neill of Rossland having failed  to appear, thus allowing his bail to be  eschea-cd. Warrants Avero issued iu each  case and the men will be arrested on  ..sight..,..  So far the grand jury lias returned  true bills in every casusubiinfeted totlrein  save the cases of Begin;. A's.

Officials Don't Want to Talk.  Washington, May ..1.���Ollicials here  are unwilling to be drawn publicly into  the controA'orsy (iver the Alaskan boundary question, even though the matter  has been made the subject of a statement in the liouse at Ottawa by sir Wilfrid Laurier,'Avhieh in theordiiiarycour.se  would relieve them from the obligation  to maintain silence. They take the view,  however, that the pendency of the negotiations with Great Britain on this subject make it inadvisable at this time to  make public the ofiicial record of  the proceedings of the joint commission. It can be stated, however, that tliere is no disposition  to question the accuracy of the statement  made by sir Wilfrid Laurier yesterday  as to the position respecting the arbitration proceedings, but this is subject to  the important qualification that the  statement referred to it state of -affairs  existing Avheit the commission AA'as in session, and at its termination, but not  later. Since then tliere have been negotiations directly between the British  government and the goA'ernment of the  United States, and of Avhat has taken  place in this connection sir Wilfrid Laurier's statement takes no account. It is  reiterated in the most earnest manner  by the officials that in these negotiations  the Canadians stood in the way of an  agreement AA'hich the British authorities,  after mature consideration, had accepted  as eminently fair and just.   ������ o  Yellow Jack at New Orleans.

I "Good oldfashioned smuggling," said a  I customs officer, "does not exist to it very  | large extent today. There is still plenty  I of work i;or secret service agents, but  > tlieir duties constantly acquaint them  ( with neAV schools of crime. Ships play a  5 much smaller part, directly, in smuggling  { than they used to. There is, I dare say,  | more cheating going on through the com-  } pact cubic space of a lady's trunk than  | there is in the holds of all the 'long, low,  ! rakish craft' or tho successors of such  { craft, at present doing business on-our  ��� coasts. The total capacity of all the  | women's trunks landed from transatlan-  ( tic steainships,is very great, much great-  | erthau it used to he.  !      "The   Canadian   border    offers    some  special  advantages  for the gentry who  f match tlieir Avits against tlte collectors of  ' revenue and  the  special   agents  ofthe  | treasury.    The  character  of  the   goods  ; smuggled across the Canadian line is favorable  to  smugglers,   too.    Horses   aud  cattle  are  easily  transported,   for .they  1 carry  tlieuiseJves, and  A\rho is  to  notice  if they cross the imaginary line betAA'een  Uncle Sam's domain and the lands of the  Canucks while  grazing along  the border  and   then fail to  return to  their former  .stables?   Or,  avIio is  to knoAV  it if live  stock is driven along the little-frequented  roads until  the border 'is crossed and  the  goods sire delivered  to Avilling and  unscrupulous co-operators on the American side? -" j  "But" your veal up-tq-date smuggler is,  1 am'sorry to say, a -woiiian.  "She would  be grossly offended if she Avere described  as a criminal.    In-fact, she is not a criminal at all except in the opinion of officers  who  have become   testy and  cynical by  long   observation.      Of   course   I   don't  mean to say that men do not also smuggle  goods  by means  of tlieir personal  baggage  when returning from abroad, but  really  the most cheerful, matter-of-fact,  yet ingenious smuggler is a woman, and  the medium of her invasion of the law is  not a schooner or a sloop,  but a trunk.

He said to me:  " 'Not long ago a most respectable and  [well-to-do lady of jiiy acditaintance in  iNew York came to lny office and said  [that she had just returned from abroad.  [Then she stated the business that called  [her to my office. She had purchased Avhile  Jin Europe a number of expensive goAvns  [and some   gloves aiid   lace.    The  total  value  of the goods  was perhaps $1500.  Then she remarked in the most matter-of-  fact Avay that she "supposed  the dresses  I and things could be brought in without  any charges," and asked me if I Avould do  her the favor of looking personally after  her baggage.    I had had less experience  than I have had since, and I was thunderstruck.   As  soon as I  got over the  state   of   rattles    into   which   she   had  throAA'n me X managed to say that I was  bound-very" strictly 'by the law and that  1 could not oblige-her.   Well, she AA'as in  a hurt', though  her good breeding caused  her to show it simply by a. rather cool  good-morning and  an air qf ha\ring been  disobliged   by some one who ought to  oblige  her.     She   has   never   recovered  from the  interview, as I ."judge from hel  ls now prepared to issue Drafts and .Letters  of Credit on Skaguay, U. S., Atlin., B. C, and  Dawson City, Yul^oq District.  manner when 1 occasionally meet her  uoav, and neither Imve I, but our points  of view in the matter are apparently as  Car apart as ever.' ,  "Now, this woman would have offered  ti, customs inspector $5' or $10 if she  hadn't happened to know the collector as  a personal acquaintance, and the act  wouldn't have troubled her conscience a  bit more. The crusade against the dishonest customs inspectors is now on in  earnest, but the abuses are.a hard'.mat-,  ter to deal with. The inspectors get only  $1 a day, and there is a lot of temptation  for them, and besides, some of these inspectors, together with many other citizens, believe it is all right to cheat the  goA'ernment.  A Promising Porcupine Creek Prospect.  SeA'eral  residents of Nelson had their  first experience at mining in 188S-!) on  Porcupine creek, twenty odd miles southeast  of Donald,  in East  Kootenay,   aud  they will be surprised to hear that a railroad  iu to the creek is now talked  of.  The  foIloAving is  from  the  Golden Era:  "Mr. Graves, M.E., who is at present ou a  visit to Golden, recently paid a visit of  inspection to the Porcupine ereek properties  bonded by Messrs.  Yuill,  Denmau,  Lappan and  others to the B. C. Alliance.  He found the trail excellent and went in  and out on  snoAvshoes, Sam Yuill being  his guide, philosopher and friend, on tlie  trip.   ;He found the prospect to be a very  _promising one and the company will start  deArelopment Avork as soon  as possible.  The lead is exposed over three claims aud  there  i.s an  extenshre  mineralized  zone  shoAving on the surface to a a\-idth of 125  feet.    The  lead  proper has a  Avidth  of  from   fifteen to   twenty-fiA'e feet.    The  lead is strongly mineralized AA'ith galena,  grey copper and sulphides.    There is A'ery  little ore showing on the summit but an  old glacial  slide has scooped out a hole  500 feet by 300 feet, exposing the present  excellent showiugs on the  lead, and having thrown thousands of'tons of ore-as  float. tA railAA'ay can- be readily built to  the, property by an easy  grade up. the  Beaver canyon and a distance of fifteen  miles  froin -Beaver station.    From  this  -and other, prospects which Mr. Gravcs'has  seen in the district he thinks more of the  XJrospects of North  l_.ist Ivooteuay as a  copper-gold  belt than any other part of  the proA'ince Avhieh lie has seen, aud expresses his   intention of  putting  in his  stakes hero.    We are sure that the foresight of Mr. Graves in this matter Avill be  rewarded Avith satisfactory results."  Dreyfus an Innocent Man.  Paris, May 31.���The procurator-general's analysis of the secret documents  was A'ery close, and lie woundup Avith an  emphatic declaration that there is nothing in the secret dossier to incriminate  Dreyfus, saying: "AVe do not understand why there Avas such delay in submitting them to investigation.'" This  statement caused a   sensation.    Contiuu-  ESTABLISHED  1879.  ing M. Manau.remarked: "Ofthe three  secret documents by Avliich M. CaA-aigauic,  former minister of Avar, sought to -justify  the condemnation, tAvo were forgeries  and the third does not apply to Dreyfus." This declaration, uttered Avith impressive-solemnity, .had an immense effect  upon the audience. In conclusion M.  Manau said: "We assert that seA'eral  neAV facts exist bf such a nature as to  prove Dreyfus innocent. Therefore, may  it please the court to quash the judgment  of December 13th, 1894, and send Dreyfus, as a .defendant, before such court  martial as the court may decide."  Favorite Won the Derby.  London, May 31.���There AA'as the  greatest attendance at the Derby in  years. The two hundred and uinteenth  renewal of the Derby stakes Avas run today at Epsom, aud Avas avou by Flying  Fox.

TEETZEL & CO.  CORNER BAKER AND JOSNPHIN.fi STREETS. NELSON  THE TOWN AND THE DISTRICT  Most of the Miners Have  Stakes.  David W. lving, purchasing agent in  tlie Slocan for the American Smelting  and Refining Company of Great Kails,  arrived in Nelson yesterday, lie reports  that the majority of tlie mines iu the  Slocan have already suspended operations, and that today, with the miners  who have been discharged and those who  Avill quit work, there will be over (500 idle  miners in the Slocan. Of this number  fully 00 per cent will go out prospecting  or working claims of their own, until the  matter in dispute in regard to the eight-  hour law is adjusted. Ever since the  Klondyke boom the miners have been  saving their wages, and the majority  have now a. considerable stake .with  which to go to work on their own account. Of the balance* he thinks "aboii.  ten per cent may loaf around the towns  and thirty per cent leave for other mining camps.  Business in the Slocan towns,  a bike for himself. He has proposed a  contest wherein the homeliest man in all  Skagit county shall be given a bicycle  yet has thus far failed to stipulate that  the winner must at once mount his prize  iind scurry out of the county.
