 Bcaa-_3________i  DREYFUS COMES OUT ON TOP  With the New Cabinet.  Paris, June 22.���The appointment of  general the marquis de Gallifet, as minister of war, is an extraordinary example  of the way in wliich the Dreyfus ease  lias revolutionized political conditions.  For years past the general lias been the  bugaboo of the extremists, not only because of his monarchical tendencies, but  on account of the rigorous manner which  he took in repressing the commune. His  entry into the cabinet is undoubtedly  due to his attitude towards the Dreyfus  . case, wliich has been throughout favorable to Dreyfus, although lie holds that  the proclamation of the prisoner's innocence should not include placing the responsibility of the apparent*'judicial blunders upon the general staff.  On leaving the Elysce palace, 31. Wal-  deck-Rousseau visited M. Dupuy, the  premier, to whom he presented the president's decree naming him as the new premier. The cabinet will meet tomorrow.  Senator Waldeek-Rousseau entered parliament from Rennes, Avhere he once  practiced law. He was born at Nantes  December 2, 1840. After practising law  at Rennes he became a member of the  Paris bar. He was elected to the chamber of deputies in 1870, and was minister  of tlie interior in the Gambetta cabinet,  1881 and 1882, aud in the Ferry cabinet  1883-85. He was re-elected in 1885, retired from the party in 18S9, aud was  elected senator in 1S94. In politics he is  a republican and a revisionist.  Paris, June 22.���Le Courier du Son-  publishes an interview this morning with  general the marquis de Gallient, the new  minister of war, who is represented as  saying: "I am reproached for my attitude iu 1S71. At that time I served the  majority, the constitution and the law as  a soldier ou the active list. I have remained silent until now. Today I find  the army talking far too much. I ain as  0I was thirty years ago, at the service of  the inajority, the constitution and the  law." y     (  M. Alexandre Millevoye, a radical socialist, in an interview published by the  same paper, is reported as saying: "The  republicans have concluded an armistice  in order to meet the enemies of the republic and to restore things to tlieir  proper places iu the army, the magistracy and the administration."

Bruce  White,  manager of the  Molly  Gibson mine on  Kokanee  creek,  reports  that the season is so late iu the vicinity  of the Molly Gibson that it  Will  be  impossible to  commence operations before  the middle of July.    The first work that  the company 'will undertake Avill be the  building of a Avagon road from Kootenay  lake to the mine, a distance  of some ten  miles.     Negotiations  were  opened Avith  the provincial government sometime ago  Avith a view to securing assistance in the  building of this  road, but  they came to  nothing,  the-latest proposition  of' the  government- being   that  the   company  should build the road and put toll  gates  upon it.    The Molly Gibson  people contended that as the building of tlie road  would enable the goA'ernment to  collect  the tonnage tax upon the output of the  mine, it would from the  first pay handsomely for   the  necessary  expenditure,  and in a very short time recoup the government for  the entire  outlay.    When  the negotiations failed for the  construe-;  tion   of   the   Kokanee    creek   road,  an  attempt Avas made to get a road up from  the Kaslo side  of the divide,  but the  management of the Molly Gibson decided  that the natural outlet for tlieir property  Avas doAvn Kokanee creek, and they decided that, if necessary, they would build  the  road   themselves.    The Ayorkiug  of  the Molly Gibson upon the lines proposed  will add materially to the business of the  merchants of Nelson, and it is not improbable tliat the output of the mine  may  be treated at the Hall Mines smelter.

Chicago Buys Montreal Bonds..;-"-  ���Chicago, June 22.���Chicago financiers  closed today one of the most important  international transaction in the history  of the city.

This  is  an  age of trusts and strikes.  Capital  is massing its strength on one  hand and labor on the other.    Without  one the other cannot exist.     Capital, if  alloAved, Avould loAver the rate of wages  until the Avorkinginan Avould be no better   than   a   slave.    Labor,   if  alloAved,  AA'ould raise the rate of Avages until every -  moneyed man avou Id become a pauper.  Neither condition of affairs is desirable.  Some men,  through tlieir brains, luck,  skill and cunning amass Avealth aud hire  labor.     The   rcAvard   of   their merit   is  Avealth and power.    Other men, through  a lack of luck, brains or cunning haA'.e to. .  Avork,'   The reward.of their labor is an *  existence Avithoutjnuch individual poAver. \  ���'   Tlie loAvering of Avages is often caused,  indirectly," by  the  laborer himself.   -He  -Avishes to  get  higher pay for his work;  but desires  to ,buy everything he  consumes at" =the  lowest-4 price. ' Loav prices*/ ���  menu Ioav Avages. - In this province Avages-  are higher than   in-any other part of  , ,  Canada, yet _h6u._ands.of dollars are sent*,  monthly,to department stores in the east  ���for  goods.    In   order   to   compete  with  these stores Avestern merchants Avill have    -  to combine, buy in larger quantities and*  cheapen the wages of tlieir help.    That is*,  the  Avay it  Avorks.    Try to  get, everything cheap and you .c\rent,ually  become  the same Avay.    At one* time avo paid the  highest wages in Canada to printers, and  demanded' good prices for. our Avork.   AVe _  found plenty  of people 'Avho,  to saA'e a  dollar, Avould patronise some  scab  office  whore the proprietor lived  on wind and  paid his hands in:proniises.    That is one  reason for strikes.    Each, particular kind  of labor wants a high  price for its oavu  work, but by demanding eA'erything else  cheap it tears down the price of the labor  of men in every other occupation.

SAVINGS BANK BRANCH.  CURRENT RATE Oif INTEREST PAID  HOW   A   MOB   WAS   DISPERSED.  "1 see   by the papers," said a  formei'  resident of the west, to a Toronto Globe  /reporter, "that the French police quelled  a mob the other day by turning a hose  on then.    I saw the same thing tried under very dramatic circumstances  out in  Denver  in the early '80's.    Tliere was a  very  strong feeling against the Chinese  all though the west at the time, growing  out of Dennis Kearney's 'sand lot' campaign in 'Frisco,  and it needed next to  nothing  to.start a demonstration.    One  ��� day a few Denver hoodlums set the ball  rolling by Avrecking a laundry, aud in less  than  an  hour a full-grown  riot wis in  progress.    The mob  swept   down  upon  the Chinese section like a prairie lire and  a horrible massacre was apparently inevitable, wheu proceedings were momentarily shecked. by au  extraordinary incident.     It seemed that a gambler named  Tim Moon had dipped in  at one of the  laundries for his weekly supply of boiled  shirts and the Chinaman had  some difficulty in finding the right bundle.    While  he  was  searching  his  shelves the vanguard of rioters suddenly appeared and  were about to raze the frail little shanty  to the ground, when  Moon leaped out of  the front door with a cocked revolver in  each hand.    'Hold   on, boys!' he yelled.  'You've got to Avait until I get my shirts!'  Tliere  were at least 4000 people in the  "mob,  but Moon  was a  noted deisperado  and  nobody dared-make the  first move.  The dense   throng' stopped in almost a  *  straight line,  like'i. river"checked by an  invisible  barrier.      'Tell  him  to  hurry,  Jim!' somebody shouted from the crowd.  'Make haste,  John,' called Moon through  tlie door, 'these gentlemen   want to hang  you.'    The sally raised a laugh and for a  moment there was a gust of rough badinage,  but it Avas evident  that  the crisis  could  not be prolonged many   seconds  more.    And that brings me to the Avater  episode, from Avhieh 1 haA'e slightly wandered.  "While Moon Avas holding the crowd at  bay," continued the story teller, "a company of militia had been rushed to the  scene, but hesitated to fire. You see,  public sentiment aviis so generally AA'ith  the rioters tliat nobody cared to tako the  responsibility of ordering a volley. Just  then captain Dave Cook, Avho Avas at the  time chief of the Rocky mountain police,  came galloping up on horseback, leading  the way for a steam fire engine, and before anybody realized his purpose a four-  inch stream of ice water Avas turned on  the thick of the throng., Tlie eifect was  _^sinipiy^^iii'actllouS.=jL=-AViis^a=Ver^eold  day dud tho lio*. de Of infuriated westerner.-, avIio AROnld surely hitve stood their  groulici against a fiteilfc'lie.of riflbs, simply  turned*tail and,_i"tn.i1 .livtheir frantic efforts to get out of the way of the Avater  scores of people were kuocked-dbAVn a,nd  trampled on. It was a complete rout and  in two minute- the street Was as empty  as a drum.  "What is more the thing prevented  any reassembling at Other fioints, for the  fellows who had beeh chased by- the liose  were so chagrined at the absurd figure  tliey eiit that they immediately sneaked  off home aiid by the time they secured  day clothes had lost, all interest in the  Chinese question. Thus a riot was turned into a ��ootl joke and for a long time  afterward the happy 'expedient tliat won  the day Avas referred to as 'Dave Cook's  water cure,' warranted, to relieve any  ease of municipal congestion.' "  INDIVIDUALITIES.  After the performance of "Lohengrin"  at Windsor castle on May 25th, Queen  Victoria conferred the Victorian Order on  Jean de Reszke.       -  Sir Thomas O'Connor Moore,. Bart., has  been ejected from the room lie lived in  Avith his family at Cork, because lie was  unable to pay the rent of twenty-five  cents a week.         Senor Leony Castillo, the Spanish embassador at Paris, has, on behalf of the  queen-regent of Spain, presented to  prime minister Dupuy the cross of the Order of Carlos the Third, in recognition of  the measures taken by- the French government to prevent Carlist excursions into Spain by Avay of the frontier.

Before ..her marriage on June 9fch, 1894, Mrs. Iselin Avas  Miss Hope Goddard, only child of colonel  William Goddard, of Providence, R. I., a  multi-millionaire manufacturer. Mrs.  Iselin is an ardent yachtswoman.  Sir Salter Pyue, the Englishman Avho  has passed the last thirteen j-ears of his  life in Cabul, as a sort of general supervisor for the Ameer, has had (a more or  less serious difference regarding money  matters Avith that potentate, and has left  Afghanistan, probably for good. He says  thatthe Ameer is in fairly good health  just now, but that he has not been able  to walk, or even to stand on his feet, for  the last five years, aud that his next attack will probably be fatal.  Dr. Playfair, the London physician who  Avas condemned to pay fifty thousand  dollars damages for libel a feAV years ago  Avas hurt in a queer automobile accident  recently. He was going up a hill Avhen  something gave AA'ay and the carriage began to roll backward doAvn the slope.  The driver applied the poAver-brake to  the rear Avheels, forgetting that hc Avas  going backAvard, Avith the result that the  carriage stood up on end and tipped backAvard, bruising Dr. Playfair as it fell upon him.  In Austin county, Texas, there is a remarkable German . family consisting of  fif ty;six people.

Strangely  enough, he had but ono son.** This son,  however, whose name is John Schmidt,  married AA'hen ho was twenty years of  age, and he has raised fifteen bbys and  girls. Five of these have married, but  not one has yet left the parental roof.  These five married sons and daughts have  twenty-five children, and there are six  'great-grandchildren of Caspar Schmidt in  the family.  Professor Albert A. Michelson, head instructor of physics in the university of  Chicago since 1892, avIio has just been  elected an honorary member of the Royal  Institution of Great Britain, A\Fas born in  Strelsna, Poland, in 1852. He has found  time to invent several important instruments for measuring the length of light  waves. The invention that brought him  most fame is an interferometer, -which  not only measures light waves, but counts  the Avaves. His first notable invention  was   an instrument   for   measuring the_.  Europe of secretary Porter, Avas made  assistant-secretary in 1898, and for the  past few months has been ably filling the  principal post and conducting affairs in  the White house in an admirable manner.  Iu 18S0 he AA'as made private secretary to  the post-office inspector in NeAV irork  city. Two years later Mr. Cortelyon Avas  appointed private secretary to the fourth  a*si:-tii.t post.naster-general, then Mr.  Rathbone. In 1S92 he resigned, but Avas  at once made secretary of assistant postmaster-general MaxAvell. Mr. Cortelyon  is a laAvyer of ability. He has the degrees of bachelor and master of Iiiavs, and  his extensive experience amply fits him  for the present position.  The sensational collapse of the French  horse Holocauste, whose death represented a loss of thirty thousand dGllars to his  owner, Avas an intense disappointment to  a large French contingent Avhicli went  over to England to sec Avhat Avas confidently predicted to be a victory for their  representative in tlie great Derby race.  The Paris newspapers are furious, and  blame the Epsom authorities for leaving  the course in a disgracefully dirty condition, for-it'is gravely declared that Holocauste slipped  on a piece  of orange-peel.  FULL LINE OF  There Avas a, great rush for relics after  Holocauste was slaughtered. His ears,  mane, tail and hoofs Avere cut off, aud the  gypsies did a roaring trade in selling  bunches of hair cut from their own gray  horses and palmed off as genuine Holocauste souvenirs. In spite of the clatter  of disgruntled losers, Tod Sloan, the  American jockey, heads the list of win-  ners this year, having avou thirty-five  per cent of his races, while the best English jockey has only avou nineteen per  cent.

He says tliat G'eorge  Alexander and tliose who are interested  with him in the Alice mineral claim will  have a force of men of work in a day or  two building a wagon road to the Alice  and preparing the property for an extensive policy of development. George Arthur says that the Alice i.s the most admired prospect on Kin}, creek. Ft is  about two miles from Creston, and the  control I inK interest was .secured IVoni  Jap King and Hen Anderson for $80.10.  Tlie ledge he describes as four feet wide  and says Lhat it has been traced for 2700  feet. Of the country lying around in the  vicinity of where Llie celebrated Alice  pretends to be George Arthur says that it  is such a country as any one might envy,  but its wealth will never be known until  the proposed wagon road i.s built and ballasted and the pay car makes regular  trips between tho Alice and Creston, the  hub of the Goat river valley.  NELSON.  J. ft. Wray has removed his tailoring  establishment to the east store iu the  Carney block, between H. 3. Evans & Co.  and the Kootenay Coffee Company.  Between one and two p.m. today the  teachers of the Nelson public school Avill  give lessons to their pupils which will be  open to the public. Between two and  three p. in. the results of the recent examinations will be held, and it is also  expected that speeches will be -made by  some of the school trustees, the local  ministers, the mayor and others.  George Arthur Bigelow of Creston is iii  Nelson.  Sergeant Beer had the members of the  local comi.auy of rifles out last evening,  and spentan hour on the recreation ground  in putting them through-their drill.- The  men have a smart appearance, but they  are hampered in their company drill by  the non-attendance of several who enlisted Avhen the company was first  formed.  ���TV. C. McLean and TV. A. McLean have  secured the contract for the excavating  necessary for the stamp mill wliich the  William Hamilton Manufacturing Company Avill erect on the Granite mines for  the Duncan Mines Limited.  Petty thieving-appears'to be on the increase in this city. There is nothing daring in the work of the thieves. They appear, to make the most of houses which  are .left vacant for. a few hours iu the.  afternoon, .and larders which .arc not se:  cured with burglar proof combinations.  It is such work as might be expected from  the _ittle army of vagrants*" Avhieh has  sought refuge' in Nelson .' after being'  driven but. of surrounding places..    .  "T. Mitchell, who has tlie "contract for  erecting*the liuth eoncentrator.afc Sandon,  and the Bunker Hill ifc Sullivan mill in  Idaho, arriA'ed in tho city from Sandon  yesterday evening. Be reports that the  building for the Ruth mill is-up and enclosed ready for the machinery. The  "Bunker  Hill  <fc Sullivan   mill  building,  wliich was recently blown up by the  strikers, i.s also up, and forty jigs have  ^already been installed. The mill i.s expected to be ready by August 1st Avhen  it will have a daily capacity of SOO tons.  Hugh Nixon is putting the Baker street  approach fco the city in presentable shape  for the celebration. He is laying a ten-  foot sidewalk from Kootenay to Hail way  street, and it is understood that tlie Canadian I'acilie Bail way Company will continue the same to the company's depot.  The conimittee who are soliciting  money for the addition to the Kootenay  Lake General ilospital have secured subscriptions to the amount of :,:;.700.  The six special constables who were  rushed out to Vinir mine a short time  ago are returning home. Tin re is a  marked difference between their coining  and their going. Tliose who sent them  to the Vmir mine, armed with police  badges, thought their presence so essential that a special train was chartered to  whirl them from Nelson to Y'niir���while  sober-minded -people Smiled. Their going created a considerable stir' but their  coming will not be noticed. They are  dropping into Nelson and surrendering  their badges, and the shedding of their  authority is unnoticed.  The city clerk has received soA-eral replies to his advertisement in eastern  papers for tenders for the city debentures.  G. VV. Wood ifc Son, Amelius Jarvis<fc Co.,  G. A. Stimson <fc Co., all of Toronto, and  tlie New York Life insurance Company  have already Avritten asking for details  regarding the issue.
