Tllfi IIaoum, July 5.���The American  delegates scored a great success today in  obtaining from the peace conference a  unanimous vote iu favor of having the  question of private property a,fc sea in  time of war dealt with at a special conference to be summoned hereafter, flinch  diplomatic management was necessary  and many obstacles had to be surmounted  before this result was reached. In the  course of a clear and eloquent statement  of the American case Andrew I). White,  head of the American delegation, .said  tlie United States government had  accepted the invitation to participate  in the conference with alacrity because  of the opportunity it was expected the  conference would afford for preaching  the true facts regarding the immunity  from capture of private property .at sea.  JIe admitted, however, tluit the United  States government recognized that it  would be hopeless to expect any decisive  result from this conference, owing to the  absence of instructions from powerful  governments, doubts as to competence of  the conference and the length- of time  necessary foi- a discussion of all the bearings of the case.  Another General Checked Up.  R15NNES, July 5.���There were interesting developments today in the "Saxce  affair. General Julliard, commanding the  garrison here, issued to the troops an  order of the day upon the occasion of the  departure of colonel Saxce of the Tenth  artillery, to take up the new command to  which he was transferred as a disciplinary  measure by the minister of Avar. General  Julliard, in the order paid colonel Saxce  high tribute for his brilliant qualities,  and declared that he enjoyed the entire  confidence  of his chiefs.

ATTORNEY  GENERAL   EXPLAINS  He Won't Get Out.  Victouia, July i>.���Attorney-general  Joseph iMartin was interviewed by a  Globe reporter today and made the following statement about the incident of  premier Semlin refusing his resignation.  When asked if the story published in  'Vancouver was correct, he replied, "Yes;  it is perfectly correct."  'To tho question "Do you intend to re-"  sign?" Martin replied in his well known  emphatic way, "Certainly not. If any  one should resign it ought to be Mr. Semlin, for he has not the confidence of the  whole of his cabinet nor of the members  of his party in tho house."  The whole proceeding on the part of  the premier Mr. Martin pronounced as  most extraordinary. "As was well known,  the position of "premier" is not recognized in the constitution, and because he  happens to disagree with certain members of his cabinet no premier has the  right to request that member's resignation, especially without consulting his  colleagues.  "Mr. Semlin did not consult his colleagues," went on Mr. Martin. "He acted  on his own responsibility, or rather on  the advice of Mr. Cotton, as -Mr..Semlin  is a weak man and is governed by what  Mr. Cotton says. The whole thing is a  conspiracy between Mr. Semlin and Mr.  Cotton. Cotton is one of those men who  Avould rather stand behind a '.tree and  push someone else forward to do his  work. As for the reasons Mr. Semlin  gaAre.for asking me to resign, it is most  extraordinary that he would have acted  without overrequesting me to give any  explanation. I told him so plainly on  Saturday.  "It is very ridiculous for Mr. Semlin to  charge me with neglecting my department after he made such a muddle of the  lands and works department that we had  to move him into the much less responsible department of provincial secretary,  and he is not eSren equal to carry ou that  in an efficient Avay.

Moore, ore buyer for the Trail  smelter, yesterday sold a ball' interest in  the Ocean mineral claim, on Payne mountain, in the Slocan district, to A. 13. Hand  of ATew Westminster for $10,000, with a  cash payment of $500, the balance to be  paid in equal installments in one, three  and six months. Mr. Rand owned fche  other, half interest and will place a force  of forty men at work on development.  The property i.s situated about one thousand feet from tho Payne mine and has  one hundred feet of tunneling done on it.  Assays from the lead give good values in  silver and lead.  YMIR.  ��� W. N. Blanch field, J. Goodlad, C.  Creamer, Peter and John Philbert are the  owners of a group Of five mineral claims-  situated on the divide between Sixteen  Mile and Grant creeks, about three, miles  from the Hennessy group and one mile  from the Cariboo mine. They are named  respectively Enico, Leadville, Stem-  winder, Yukon and Goldbottom. The  lead, which is outcropping on the surface,  is well defined and can be traced for a  considerable distance, and galena ean  very easily be knocked off the top. The  characteristics of the ore, Avhieh is a very  hard Avhite quartz, are oxides and pyrites  of copper, galena and pyrites of iron.  The assays ran from $12 xo $17. A small  force of men -luwe been busy putting'in  shots all along the lead, which is visible  through all the claims. Jack Goodlad,  Avho is an old miner in the Kootenays,  considers it one ofthe best things he has  ever been connected .with.  At the Cariboo mines, in Avhieh W.N.

The Nelsoii Tribune long enjoyed the reputation in this  province of being not only a political back-biter, but a  willful fabricator and a most wretchedly conducted concern.  The above is from tlie Vancouver  World, tiie only paper in the province so  mean as to take advantage of a section in  the postoffice regulations framed specially for pa,pei*s in the backwoods townships of Ontario, through which tlie  editor of the World used to peddle sewing machines and bibles.

But the statemoiits  made above are not what the opponents  of the eight-hour law like to see in print.  The most virulent opposition to  tlie law  comes from men who are not interested  in   tlie  mining   industry.

All'i'od Dreyfus, ton years ago a private soldier from tho lost provinces of  France, lias become the most pathetic  figure ol the last decade of the nineteen th  century. Simply told, freed from the  coin plications which have gathered about  it, there is no more touching story in the  whole of history. He is one of four  brothers, and was born in happy circumstances, his family being well-to-do manufacturers in Mulhouse. France never  had more loyal sons than the four  brothers at Mulhouse, and wlien, in 1872,  they had either to declare themselves  Germans or quit their native land, the  three younger brothers, including Alfred,  swore eternal fealty to the land of their  fathers and went to Paris. The elder  brother, Jacques, remained behind to keep  intact the business on wliich the family  depended, but his loyalty to France, apparently less ardent than that of his  brothers, .was evinced in a striking manner later, when he 'determined, to make  naturalized Frenchmen of his sons.  Though the act exiled them from their  native country for nearly thirty years,  Jacques Dreyfus made each of his six  boys citizens of France, and since 1S0-.1,  when the name of Dreyfus became a  name of scorn in Paris and throughout  all the departments of France, this patriot lias  left Alsace, with his youngest  n biji^flgiijlie' C^ifti|fcl^*GoJfe^:i*iuci'' tli&��<H*> -  '"Xe^e o/SlilUt.

In fourteen  ySJirs,   in spite of  the obstacles lie met  Avitli   as a Jew,,   he had raised   himself  froni the position, of a private pupil in a  military   school to  oiie   of the   liighest  posts in tlioitriliy.    He Was the only Jew  among tlio 200 of the geneva,! staii.  That, ib would seem, sliould. have won  for IXreyI'iis the esteem of liis comrades,  and made his position secure. Instead, it  brought about liis doOin. It trailspired  tliat secrets were being betrayed by  someone on tlie general stiUT_ Iii, September, 1$01, an Alsatian servant brought  tho famous bordereau���-a, letter showing  that militai'y secrets liad been betrayed,  ���to the intelligence department of the  French war office. It was torn in many  pieces, which were pasted together, iind  colonel Sandlierr, to whom the investigation was instructed, was only too ready  to believe the tale of two officers, who  came forward and declared tho bordereau  to be in the handwriting of Dreyfus.  The colonel, now dead, was a notorious  enemy of tlio Jews, and he readily  pounced upon Dreyfus as the guilty  ���traitor.  It only remained to bring the charge  home���not a difficult matter once the colonel's mind was made up. Commandant  Du Paty do Clam was charged to conduct  a preliminary inquiry, and the story of  how this wretched man trapped Dreyfus  is told in a semi-official document which  has been inade public. It will enable the  reader to form an opinion of the worth of.  tlie document, however, to state here  that the day before". Dreyfus was "examined," the-prisqn authorities had been ordered to prepare a cell for him! Du Paty  asked Dreyfus to attend at the war office  at 9 o'clock in'the morning of October  15th, to receive an important  conimuni-  cation and on his appearance Du Paty  began to dictate a copy of the bordereau  to him.  "At these first words" (says the document referred to) "the captain turned  pale, his hand trembled, his pen wavered.  " 'But, pray, write straight, my dear  fellow!" said tho commandant.  "Dreyfus'tried to recover himself, but  almost at once his hand was shaking and  trembled nervously.  " 'What is the matter, then.?' asked Du  Paty.  "'My lingers are cold,' he answered,  after some hesitation and stammering.  "That day the temperature was fairly  good, and there was a fire in   the bureau.  "The coininandantcontinucd to dictate,  but Dreyfus soon said:  " 'I don't know what's the matter  with me, but I find it impossible to write.'  "Then the commandant got up quickly,  stepped to the door of the next room and  opened it.  "M. Cochefert, chef de la surete, and  commandant Henry, employed iu the department of statistics, entered the bureau.  "M. Cochefert stepped up to Dreyfus,  laid his hand on his shoulder, and said:  " 'In the name of the law, I arrest you.'  " 'But why ? What do you accuse me  of?' asked the captaia.  " 'You know well enough,' replied Du  Paty. 'Your emotion in writing the letter which I dictated to you "just now is  sufficient proof.'    *  " 'I assure you I do not understand,'  replied Dreyfus, quite upset.  "Come, come! It is useless for you to  argue before sucli evidence. Your treason is discovered.'."���  And in spite of his protestations, Captain Dreyfus was thrown into prison.  Not a soul outside tlie general staff knew  what had happened. His name was not  entered in the prison register, and only  the chief warder was allowed to take him  food.**" BMaioirFoi-,sinetti, thesQQinmaudan.ts  -yj.n..y^_unp-^-A,dp .'.a%..u,a__..>>_��n__^5,__,D^_ .^"'.'ijpj.H ..$.  fethe^pv.isoner.;  "^fOdpikh^'  h%x "rri.z^x _.....  ,.._ Ji"22idiK'tov^oire1 i'^ai'd^hj{i_r���ffs:��i;dau^|4t>y!  , on:t,;��"taik ."Jt^jtlfe."ipp'ypi Jhis'V^oic^j'.al.ways:  ;"pvdfestih;i|*Mi�� innocence, �� tie ifefew^ 'him,-'  self" against" the furniture^ a|faift.s��i3"the;  ."*#vl'i_3V a"n,dD appear.etl . itji-dijseidjYs"-of'the.  h\i(-,ts he0 hxllietedy o}\ hiiiiselfj Fie Iliad  mot. a^sijigjle moineilrfr's, rej)0ss<j ��� aiul when  he, AVas. pjoustr��a|.ed by suflel'iug and.  fti^gX^^JLtP^ivisxY ji|iiisel|, withiSiit hu-.

For seven weeks the unhappy  prisoner was not allowed to: Avritc to his  wife, but on Deceinbei* 5tli, lS9i, a fort-  niglit before his trial, tliat: series Of letters commenced wliich, by their intense  pathos, their expressions of profound af-  fections their heart-breaking protests of  loyalty to "my own deaf Prance," are  enough to move a h,ea(rt of stone.  *'To have worked all one's life for one  single end, and that end the taking of revenue against that infamous robber who  had despoiled us of our dear Alsace, and  then to see oneself accused of treason towards that country---'no, my darling, my  mind refuses to take it in. Do you remember hpw 1. told you about my being  ten years ago at Mulhouse, in the inOilth  of September it was,and 1 heard one day  passing under our window a German  band celebrating the anniversary of  Sedan? My anguish was such that I  wept witli rage, tliat I bit my sheets with  anger, and swore to consecrate all my  strength, all niy understanding, to tlie  service of my country against those who  thus trampled on tlie Alsatians in their  anguish."  On January 5th, 1S05, there came a,  rude awakening for Dreyfus. At 9  o'clock in the morning the troops gathered in a public square," where, the mob  looking on, Dreyfus is to.vcceive the last  degradation a soldier can suffer.  " Hearts cease to beat," says one who  witnessed the supreme scene, "and all  eyes are turned towards tho right-hand  corner of tlie square, where Dreyfus is  shut up in a little building on.the terrace. . . . . Dreyfus walks with a  quiet, firm step. 'Just look how erect  hc walks, the scoundrel,' i.s the remark  one hears. The officer in command makes  a sign, and the drums beat and bugles  sound; then there is a- fresh _spell of  silence,  this  time  tragic in  its   import.  The gunners who accompany Dreyfus  fall back a few steps and the~co_idemued  man is seen alone and apart. Tiie clerk,  turning towards Dreyfus, reads out, in a  loud, clear voice the judgment' which  sentences him to deportation to a fortified station and to military degradation.  Dreyfus has listened in silence^ The  voice of general Darras is next heard.  It is raised and slightly touched with  emotion, and ono hears clearly the words :  'Dreyfus, you are unworthy to bear  arms. In the name of the French people  ���we degrade you.' "  At that supreme moment Alfred Dreyfus threw up his arms, and, head erect,  and in a strong voice, shouted, "I am innocent. I swear that I am innocent. Ou  the heads of my Avife and children, I  swear that I am innocent. I swear it.  Vive la France."  As the troops tear his clothes and  bieak his sword in two, the few seconds  seem like a century, and above the noise  and the shouting of the mob rings the  clear voice.of the degraded soldie r: "You  condemn an innocent man." Passing the  reporters. Dreyfus, his clothes hanging in  threads, says: "You will tell the whole  of Franco that I am innocent," but his  voice is lost in the cries of "Dastard!  Traitor!    Judas!"  "My heart has bled too much this day,"  writes Dreyfus to a friend, when it is all  over. "Innocent, I have faced the most  awful martyrdom which can be inflicted  on a soldier. I have felt all round me  the scorn of the crowd; I have suffered  the most terrible torture that can be  imagined. How much happier I sliould  have been in the tomb. All would be  ended. I should be at rest; all niy sufferings forgotten. But, alas! I am  obliged to live���obliged to allow myself  to be martyred for long weeks to come,  before tlie truth can be discovered and  my name rehabilitated. Support me,  dear master, with your burning and eloquent words. See that this martyrdom  lias an end, that they despatch .me1 as  soon as possible yonder, where I sliall,  along with my wife, Avait patiently for  them to throw light on this mournful  business and give me back my honor."  It was the hope of Dreyfus iu his  darkest hour that his wife would be al;  lowed to accompany him, but that couso-  latiou has been denied them both. Mine..  Drefus, the brave, beautiful mother of  tAvo children, has not, hoAvever, been idle  duriug the last five years. Not for one  moment has she forgotten the man Avho  AA*as so ruthlessly torn from her side.

It is enough to say that the  whole civili/.eil Avorld outside of France  is on the side of Alfred Dreyfus as  against a cruel military conspiracy. Ea-ch  if he is guilty nobody denies that Dreyfus was unjustly convicted and it is becoming clearer every day that the  "evidence" of his guilt was manufactured  after his coiiA'iction.  "I have nearly reached the limit of my  poAvers of resistance," Dreyfus wrote on  the day of his degradation. Since then  he has had four years in a wood hut on a  lonely island, "all around him," to quote  from his letters, "profound silence, broken  only by the moaning of the sea." His  very jailers curse their lot and one of  them has been driven mad. Dreyfus Avas  the only captive on the island. From  sunrise to sunset he Avas free to walk  about his rock, but he could never wander  out,of sight, and on no pretext dared his  guards speak to him. All night an armed  sentry guarded the door of his cell.
