Array RESULT OF PEACE CONFERENCE  May Settle International Disputes.  Tiir Hague, July 7.���The text of the  proposed convention is as follows:  Article 1. With the object of preventing as far as possible recourse to force in  international relations, the signatory  powers agree to use all endeavors to effect by pacific means a settlement of differences which may arise among them.  Article 2. The signatory powers decide  tluit iu case of .serious (inferences or conflict, they will before appealing to anus  have recourse, as far as circumstances  permit, to the good ollices or mediation  of one or the several of. the friendly  powers.  Article ���'*!. Independently of this, the  signatory powers deem it useful that  several of the powers not committed to  this'arbitration .scheme, shall on their  own initiative, offer, as far as circumstances permit, tlieir good ollices or mediation to the con tending states. The  ��� " right of offering their good offices be-  �� longs to powers not connected with the  conflict, even during the course of hostilities, which act can never be regarded  as an unfriendly act.  Article four sets out that the part of mediator consists in reconciling conflicting  claims, and removing resentment Avliich  may have arisen between contending  states. The functions of niediiitioncea.se  from the moment it may be stated by one  of the contending parties, or by the  mediator himself, that the compromise or  basis of amicable understanding proposed by him has not been accepted.  Good offices and mediation have the exclusive character'of counsel and tire devoid of obligatory force.  Articles seven and eight provide that  certain conventions must be entered into  in an event of good offices being offered  during the hostilities, in order to prevent  mobilization or hostilities until the acceptance of good ollices is decided on.  Articles nine to fourteen provide for  the institution of an international commission of enquiry for the verification of  facts, in cases of minor disputes not  affecting the vital interest or honor of  states, but impossible of settlement by  ordinary diplomacy. The report of an  enquiry committee will not force a judgment, leaving the contending parties full  liberty to either conclude an amicable  arrangement on the basis of tbe report  or have recourse ulteriorly to mediation  or .arbitration.  Articles 11 to 19 set forth the general objects and benefits it is hoped to derive  from the arbitration court, and declare  that signing the-convention implies an  understanding to submit in good faith to  arbitral judgment.  With the object of facilitating tin   immediate recourse to arbitration for inter-  * national   differences,   not   regulated by  .diplomatic  means.    Article' 20  provides  .thatthe signatory powers  undertake  to  organise a permanent court  of arbitration, accessible at all the time and exercising its functions unless otherwise stipulated, between  the  contending parties  in conformity with tlfe rules  of  procedure inserted in the present convention.  tmc  SATURDAY MORNING, JULY 8,  181)9.

On Tuesday they passed til rough  Ottawa in nine special trains. Of this  number eight of the trains carried Doukhobors ancl Galicians.

Lipton's Advertising Scheme.  Southampton, July 7.���Interest hi the  Shamrock's trial has been greatly increased by the authentative report that  emperor William is sending his yacht  Meteor to ..participate* in- the trial spins,  to take place early next week. Sir  Thomas Lipton in an interview this  af ternoon said the Shamrock  is  prepar  ing as fast as possible. "Tliere is a lot  to be done yet. AVe ought to be able to  stretch her sails tomorrow evening, and  she will be quite ready by Tuesday or  Wednesday, but we are not going to unduly hurry or leave Southampton preci-  pately." The trials will be over a measured course. If the Shamrock takes a  spin tomorrow she will be escorted by the  Erin, with a distinguished party on  board.  NO  INFORMATION   GIVEN  OUT  Keorganizing the   Cape   Forces.  London, July 7.���There was some lively fencing in tho  house  of  commons today over the  government's  policy  with  respect to the  Transvaal  situation.    Sir  Henry  Campbell   Bannerman,  leader of  the.Liberal'opposition, led- the  demand  for information.    After several of his interrogations   had   been   turned  aside he  said:    "It is not   \vith    regard   to   the  bringing the present military  force  to a  proper standard of efficiency that I wish  to inquire, but as to the paragraph which  appears  as  an  official   communication."  Ho . then   read   the   following   extract:  The   commander   in    chief    has     been  engaged in  completing  the  composition  and organization of a larger force, Avhieh  it will be  necessary  to  despatch should  the negotiations with the TransA'aal fail.  " It is with regard to  this  statement of  the Times, which is apparently a iicav declaration  of government  policy, that I  Avish   to   inquire."    (Opposition   cheers).  Mr. Balfour replied: "1  do  not  think  there is any new declaration of policy in  the paragraph, but   I   conceive . that the  Avar    office    would    be    extraordinarily  wanting in its most ordinary and ob\rious  duties if it were  not  prepared  for any  emergency,   hoAveA'er    undesirable    and  however   unlikely,  that  could   possibly  arise."    (Ministerial cheers).  Henry Labouchere, radical member for  Northampton, asked Avhether the officers  spoken of in the communication as going  to South Africa, Avere going into Cape  Colony and Natal to organi/.c the police  and local forces, and if so whether it was  Avith tho consent of the "colonial authorities there. ,r .        *   ,  Mr. Balfour" re plied: "I do not know."  Commander George _ Richard Bethel.  Conservative member for the Holderhess  division of Yorkshire, asked: "Would  the right honorable gentleman stiy in  what circumstances the special officers  are likely to be employed, and against  what enemies of the queen."  Mr. Bal four answered: "My honorable  friend is quite as competent a prophet as  1 am, and it-Avill require a prophet to  answer for circumstances which may  arise."  The Flood in Texas a Disastrous One.  Dallas, Texas, July 7.���Tlie flood situation is more grave today.    The  Brazos  river rose tAvo feet during the niglit and  is still rising.    Life savors from  Galves-  ton started out soon  after daylight and  are doing splendid Avork.    The Galveston  creAv brought in sixty-eight refugees last  night from the high embankment at the  Santa Fe raihvay bridge oa'oi fche Brazos,  where the people had taken refuge.    Refugees are flocking in from both sides of  _the_river���H!oiir_deaths_by-droAvning-are-  reportcd near here  in   the  hist  tAventy-  foiir hours.

The whole of yesterday afternoon and  part of   the  evening  was  taken  up   in  hearing   the   case  against  George   Holbrook, who, as sttited in the last issue of  TiiK  Tin hunk,   was accused   by   II.   W.  Hawley   of -.stealing   two   burrs  oif. his  wagon.    Joseph   Ryan,   who for a time  was driving for Holbrook, swore that on  the night  of the   15th   or   Kith   of June  Holbrook left him, saying- he  Avas  going  to get two burrs off a Avagoii, afterwards  returning with them.    He wrapped them  up in paper, - and  'placed   them   on  the  Avagon, saying he  had   fixed the  Avagon  the burrs belonged  to for  the  summer,  Tlte   night's   work over,  Holbrook  put  them in a sack and left them in a Avagon  box   near  the dumping ground,  where  Avitness found them the day of Holbrook's  arrest.    Though pressed very hard by A.  M. Johnson, counsel for the defense,  the  witness identified the burrs and also the  paper they Avere Avrapped in.     The line  of defense Avas that  the  burrs and  the  wagon they belonged to Avere Holbrook's  property, and accordingly a mass of evidence avus adduced as to  the deal.    The  story   giA'en   by   HaAvley   and  William  Ragless Avas practically identical and .was  to the effect that the hitter had agreed  to accept $10 and a scraper.'for. one of his  Avagons.      HaAvley   agreed  provided: he  could turn the Avagon .oyer, again,  and  offered it to Holbrook,. avIio agreed  to  take it in exchange for a truck that Hawley Avas then using and $10 boot, providing the Avagon  suited  him.     The three  Avent up to Ragless  place  on a  Sunday  evening, and  Holbrook  looked  trver the  Avagon and decided to take ifc, saying he  Avould  come for  it  in the morning, and  Hawley and  Ragless agreed  that their  transaction Avould be closed if he  did so.  Next morning Holbrook came down Avith  a Avagon of Ilawkey's he had been using,  Avith  his  scavenging   tank  on   it.    The  tank did not fit the  other Avagon ; Iioav-  CA'er Holbrook drove off Avith  it,  saying  he had another that Avould at home, and  as he Avent threw IlaAv.ley a  neck yoke  and ti pair of Avhiflletrees to go AA'ith the  truck hc had "traded.Avith HaAvley.  Holbrook's story Avas very 'different.  Het claimed in ,efil'ect that lie took the  ���wagon off oir the understanding that if  he could not make it fit his tanks it Avas  to be returned, and that on getting home  he found the Avagon three inches too  small, Avhcretipon ho immediately returned it. He further said that HaAvley  promised to give him back his truck, but  aftei'Avards put him off.  At the close of the etise for the crown,  A. M. Johnson moved to dismiss the information on the ground that the Avitnesses for the prosecution differed as to  when the alleged deal Avas concluded,  saying that Haw-ley had stated it Avas  concluded on Sunday, Avhieh Avould make  the transaction A'oid. S. S. Taylor disputed this, and the objection Avas not admitted. By the time George Holbrook  evidence was concluded it AA'as fl p. m.,  and the court adjourned until eight  o'clock, Holbrook in themeamvhile being  liberated on his own recognizance.  After the recess S. S. Taylor began the  cross-examination of the accused, Avhom  _hc_rather_taiigled_up_-in_inatters_of_de=-  tails. Counsel on both sides then addressed the courts and on their concltid-  hig Holbrdok Avas sentenced to a $50 fine  or tAvo months' imprisonment. The fine  Avas paid,  THE TOWN AND THE DISTRICT  A Word to Advertisers.  Tun Tkiiiunic treats all its ndA'erfcising  patrons alike.

Kaslo, July  7.-���Judge  Forin   hold  a  session of the county court hero yesterday.    The chief case was that of Sausttn  vs. the Whitewater Mining Company in  Avhieh the plaintiff claimed  damages for  injuries   received  Avhile  working in the  defendant   company's   mine   at Whitewater. Howe ver tlte case did not proceed  to trial as an application had been made  by the defendant company to have the  case transferred   to  the  supreme .court.  The plaintiffs claim for damage is based  upon an alleged faulty construction of an  ore chute in  tho WhiteAvater mine,  in  consequence of Avhich.tlie plaintiff Avas  injured by a flying piece of ore.  "  Another  case of considerable interest  was that of Dr. Rogers  vs.  the  city  of  Kaslo.     This Avas au action in .which Dr.  Rogers sued the corporation for the sum  of   $00,   being   the   hospital    fees  ou   a  patient sent to the hospital by the former  council.     The defence of the corporation  Avas that there was no provision  in any  bylaw for the care of the indigent sick.  This  technical  objection   did not weigh  Avith the court avIio took the ground that  if Kaslo had no provision for the hospital  treatment of its poor that it  av.-is  time  that such provision was made. Judgment  Avas   giA'en   for   $00.   the   full    amount  claimed.  of Uitlanders at 21. The importance of  the volksraads action, if the Digger  News tidvice is correct, can scarcely be  over estimated .as it means a compromise  whieli will do much to obviate a clash  between Great Britain .and the Transvaal. In the Bloemfontein conference  the best president Kruger could offer sir  Alfred Milner was the enfranchisement  of the Uitlanders resident before 1000 in  two years from now.   This Avas rejected.

The Wind up at Henley.  HlCNLRt*, July 7.���The Henley regatta  CJiihe to an end today under tlie most  favorable conditions. The Aveather avus  perfect but the attendance Was. not so  numerous as usual. The racing contained lio surprises aild no close finishes.'  There was a feeling of relief however,  when in the-stewards' cup- Magdalen disposed so easily of the German Crew, that  many predicted Avould win. Tlie cheers  AA'hich; greeted the Avinflers Avere  much heartier than those given  to the other A'ictors, and -emphasized, the  general joy that the trophy Was not to  be taken abroad. There was also much  enthusiasm Avhen the Etonians fairly  roAved down their strong opponents,  Pembroke college, in the ladies challenge  plate, and re-established their claim as  the holders of this handsome cup.  Howell's victory in the diamond challenge sculls Avas also immensely popular,  but he is regarded as an Englishman  rather than an American.  When lady Esther Smith presented the  prizes after the races, colonel Willan, the  umpire, made a brief speech in Avhieh he  Avelcomed tlieCanadian and foreign creAvs.  Weeding Out the Agitators.  Paris, July 0.���It is regarded as probable that general Faure Biguet Avill be  appointed military governor of Paris and  that general Zur'lindcn^ the present incumbent.of.tlit.it post,.will be transferred-,  to the^cdmmand.of an army corps.

Attorney-general Martin.has given to  the public a tAVO-coIumn letter dealing  Avith the recent split iu the Semlin cabinet. In the first part of his letter the  attorney-general enters a defence to the  charges which Avere niade against ..him,  and from this he proceeds to state what  he proposes to do and Avhat, he imagines  premier Semlin and his colleague  Cotton tire up to. This part of his letter  reads:  ."Noav Mr. Semlin, having dealt Avith  the three reasons given by yoii for asking my resignation, I beg to repeat-in  Avriting Avhat I stated to you on Saturday, that I did not propose ta resign my  position iu the cabinet, and I charge that  the reasons given by you are only pretenses, and that you have been induced  to ask for my resignation by Mr. Cotton ;  that you aiid Mr. Cotton haA'e entered  into a conspiracy to wreck the present  government and drive from it all the  Liberals, Avith the idea of forming a Gon-  scrvatiA'0 government.  "I am informed and   believe   that  you  haA'e alretidy negotiated with  Mr. Ilelm-  cken   and   Mr. Higgins  with'  a  A'iew  of  their entering a government of this kind.  I  knoAv that   you   haA'e  not   consulted  either Dr. McKechnie or Mr. Hume Avith  regard   to   asking   for   my  resignation.  This contemplated course on the  part of  Mr. Cotton and yourself is in my opinion,  a gross outrage upon the electors  of this  province.   Dominion party lines Avere expressly ignored by the  late- government  and the present government' parties in  the last general  election.    While  it appears thatthere are in fche present house  ti majority  of  Conservatives' that   is a  mere accident and they Avere not elected  as such.    For you therefore to attempt  to    form   a   government   which*   avou Id  depend for its.support upon these gentlemen  avIio  happen   to  be  Conservatives,  would, it appears to me, entirely nullify  the A*ote wliich took place  on July  9th  last.    I feel satisfied  that your attempt  to cany out ii conspiracy of this nature  Avill not meet with success.    -At any rate  you can depend upon eA'ery effort being  made by me to  frustrate  ifc,  and  1   feel  certain   that  the   Con.servatiA'es  of   the  province who voted for the late opposition Avill be entirely opposed to any such  attempt.    I haA'e urged   you   to  call the  supporters   of   the   government  in   tiie  house together in caucus, to consider the  Deadman's   Island  question,   which  has  created such an agitation in   the  city of  Vancouver.    I think that course should  still be adopted, and I  think  in  addition  that it is absolutely necessary now  that  our supporters should be called together  to   determine   Avhether   your  course   in  LACROSSE  BOYS^ COAST  TRIP  Westminster Offers Them the Pot.  The management of the Nelson lacrosse  team has received a favorable reply from  the New Westminster lacrosse.team with  respect to the proposed visit to Ncav  Westminster of the local team. The NeAV  Westminster club offers the Nelson club  the entire gate receipts of the game in  their city if they will visit the Coast. It  now depends upon the nature of the  replies received from Vancouver, Victoria  and Nanaimo whether fche local boys Avill  make the Coast trip or not. They have  ii team Avliich can be counted upon to  do Nelson justice a,nd if anything in the  way of favorable replies are received  from the other cities oil the Coast and  Island they avi'11 make the trip.  Should the trip be decided upon they  will take Messrs. Devlin, Lynch, Grant,  Thompson, McNichol, Howden, Laekie,  Jell's, Hayer, Perrier, Archibald, BlackAvood, O'Brien, Fraser, Rutherford and  Revee.

Personsally, he said, he did uot favor conscription, but he thought it advisable  that such a bill should bo in readiness if  wanted and that tlie country should  realize how it stands with regard to the  question. Already the Liberal papers  are. attacking the government and asking  what need there is of such a measure unless conscription is intended, and looking  to the fact that recruiting is dwindling  the bill will be regarded with great suspicion.

The chances are,  some of: tliose boycotting mine managers  ���would themselves, be handling pick and  shovel today had it not been for the help  given them in the early days by Bob and  Sam Green. Attempts to ruin men simply because of differences of opinion on  questions of political economy should be  ���frowned doAvn by all good citizens. S. JI.  and R. P. Green have been residents of  West Kootenay for more than a decade,  nnd no men in the district haA'e been  more enterprising and public spirited according to tlieir means. Every lover of  fair play and every wage Avorker should  resent this attempt of alien mine managers to financial cripple . a firm that has  done much to develop Ainsworth and  Slocan districts.  tor in the domestic politics of this province: no more ol' a lac-tor than is its  afternoon contemporary, tho Vancouver  World, in I'tict, the people oi the province are becoming a trifle tired ol' V.m.ii-  couA'er through its press and its poli-  ticians.  The public- in general arc fairly cognizant, of the main  attendant circumstances of the issue, upon which for the  moment we prefer to make no special comment.  The above i.s from the Vancouver  News-Advertiser and refers to the light  over DcjmIlium's Island that litis been injected into the Semlin government by  Messrs. Cotton and iMartin of ViineouA'er,  both'of whom happen to be in the Semlin government. The public in general  are not' particularly interested in the  headman's Island dispute. It is one tluit  concerns      Vancouver     alone. It     is  one between two 'factions of tluit  town. One faction is the local sawmill interest, wliich has borrowed  so much money from ji local bank,  that Avere a rivjtl sawmill started  the mills already there would depreciate  so much that their owners would be required to give the bank further security.  This faction is backed up by minister  Cotton. The other faction wants all the  lumber used on earth sawed in Vitn-  couvcr, and minister Martin stands in  Avith them. Tins Triiuink is of opinion  that neither;Mr. Cotton nor Mr. Martin  luwe shoAvn good sense in alloAving this  loctil squabble to interfere with their  duties as ministers of the ci'oavh.

Some time ago a friend called his attention to a certain popular young doctor  who sports a handsome beard.  "I wonder why Dr. Dash wears all  those whiskers?"' remarked the friend.  "I suppose he wears 'em," said the sudden-rich man in a profoundly sagacious  tone, "to give himself a more matronly  look."  Our liero saw Julia Marlowe as Rosalind and came away from the opera-house  quite delighted.   .  On the street car a friend asked him  how he liked the performance.  "It was splendid," he answered.    Then  lie wisely added:    "What a pity it is that.  that man didn't wzite more plays."  Even-Handed Justice in Atlin.

District.  ing the first few days, but in the case of  Urtiyer vs. Harrison a decision was rendered that put at rest the fears of the  Americans in tlie district that justice  would be administered on tlie all-Canadian plan. Brayer, the plaintiff, located  ii bench claim on Spruce creek last fall,  and upon attempting to record it was  told by gold commissioner Rant that he  had not then time to record bench claims.  Rant Avas appointed by the Turner government. Soon, after the mining recorder's ollice was closed for winter and Brayer was obliged to wait for spring. In the  'meantime the alien law was passerl and  Harrison, a British subject, was advised  of the circumstances by a friend occupying the adjoining creek claim, and proceeding on the more less popular idea of  jumping everything American, relocated  the claim and commenced active work,  spending, all told, about $400 in development and taking out considerable gold.  ..Brayer reappearing, tlie claim wtis laid  over by gold commissioner Graham, avIio  was appointed to office by the Semlin  government, and on Friday judge Irving,  in a scathing manner, rendered a decision  against Harrison, and- peremptorily ordered him to take liis belongings and  quit the ground now occupied by him,  and pay all costs of the case.  Title to the claim will be .awarded  Brayer on July 3rd, the day set for  granting title on disputed claims. As a  great many claims were located by Americans last fall and not recouled for simi-  H.

A Question of Manhood.  Salt Lake Tribune.  The  courage of the American  people  was on trial hist year and.they never faltered.    The  manhood   of  the   American  people is on trial this year and many are  falling  down.    For the   very meanest of  partisan purposes tliere are reproaches tit  the government and daily impeachments  of the motives  behind those  in  power ;  though Havana litis become more healthy  than New Orleans and Santiago has a less  proportniiiite  death rate  than Philadelphia; though school houses are spreading  through Cuba, and order and the beginning   of   prosperity   reveal   the   benign  work goin}? on there; the hint is thrown  out daily that there is a purpose to never  "surrender the island, and it can havo but  ono   purpose behind   it,  and  that  i.s   to  kindle   an   insurrection   there.     On the  other hand, our soldiers in the Philippines  are pictured as monsters of cruelty and  Aguinaldo as a-u. unselfish patriot struggling  for .freedom  for himself   and his  people against- a merciless foe.    The truth  is that the American people do not show  up well unless some serious business is on  hand, something so serious that it causes  them  to forget  their  selfishness and to  kindle their honest pride.    A writer from  the Philippines declared recently thatthe  American soldiers, the volunteers especially,   Avere  great   growlers;  that   they  were .indifferent to  details and that the  only  place where  they show what they  really are is on the firing line.    It is a  good deal so with the nation cat home.  Ours is a magnificent  nation in action, a  FULL LINE DF  mighty trifling kind of a nation in-uSnip,  so trifling Lh.it, the people often forget to  be just.  HOTEL   ARRIVALS.  HUME.
