Public Opinion Changes.
London, July 15.—Another week of
bickering, oi' heated invective and A'itu-
peration, accusations of tyranny on one
liand and treason on the other, of increasing distress among tlie Uitlanders of the
Hand owing to tlie dislocation of business, of military preparation, and,
throughout all, the apparent maintenance by the Boers of tlieir stolid attitude of indifference. All the representations made have only served to add to
the perils of the Transvaal situation, and
everything tends to confirm the opinion
that the imperial government means to
obtain reform.
The ministers have practically pledged
themselves to enforce the reforms, peacefully if possible, otherwise forcefully.
The empire appears absolutely united on
the subject. On top of the Queensland
offer of troops to serve in South Africa
should an emergency arise, tlie reports of
the debate in the Canadian parliament
and the tone of the remarks of sir Wilfrid Laurier and sir Charles Tupper have
caused the greatest satisfaction here.
The  startling   telegram   published   on
Friday by the Boer organ   here, the Diggers' News, showing apparently that the
Transvaal had given in, and   that cordial
relations had been   resinned,  which-was
promptly   denied   by   the  secretary   of
state for the  colonies, .Josepli   Chamberlain, though evidently tinged to suit the
susceptibilities of the papers, was so circumstantial       iind apparently      authoritative       that       the       hope       Avas
aroused   that   the  end   of   the  quarrel
was   in   sight, but   the  only foundation
for the  dispatch was  found in the fact
that Air. Chamberlain on Wednesday, before the new franchise bill was introduced
in   the   volksraad,   requested   that   the
text be communicated  to him and sug-
geeted   that  the  debate   be   postponed
pending such representations in regard to
alteration   therein as the   imperial government might desire to make in the interests  of peace.     The refusal of president Kruegr to accede to  the request is
regarded here as fresh   evidence that the
president   is   still    dominated    by    Df.
• Leyds,   the  European   representative  of
the Transvaal, who has heretofore piwed
the  evil  genius  for the Transvaal, and
continues to delude the Boers ..with the
theory that if they can only gain time by
simulated concessions no real reform will
be necessary, as a new ■.■grouping  of the

Day's Shooting at Bisloy.
To I {onto,, July If).—A special cable to the Telegram, dated Bisley Camp,
July I nth, says: Four members of the
Canadian team captured pri/.e money in
the Prince of Wales competition. Lieutenant II. A. Robertson of the Thirteenth
battalion, Ha.milton, did some splendid
shooting and stood tenth among the winners. Private A. B. Fleming took 22nd
place, and private I, W. Simpson of the
10th Royal Grenadiers 2-ltI'i. The three
get money prizes of £-'i each. The only
other pri/.e winner on the Canadian team
was lieutenant II. C. Blair of the 79th
'battalion, who secured sixteenth place
and a prize of £2.
Shooting at the 000 yards range in the
Association cup competition today lieutenant IT. C. Blair made a possible. Captain Cartwright got within the bull's eye
in each of his ten shots at SOO yards in
the Burt competition.
Lord Strathconn. and Mount Royal, the
Canadian high commissioner, has invited
the team1 representing Canada to a garden
party at Kenworth, his county seat, on
the 22nd.
Today in the experimental No. 2
match, sergeant major S. C. Huggins" of
the 11th battalian scored a ijossible.
The distance in this competition is 500
yards and there are twenty-seven prizes
amounting to £30.. The target is an experimental second class, having a 24-ineh
circular visible bullseye, the remaining
six inches being included in the 30-inch

Will Insist on Reforms.
Bkui.ix, July 15.—Now that a plan for
arbitration has been adopted at Tho
Hague anil the articles regulating warfare on land have been published, the
press is paying much attention to the
work <if the peace conference. Notwithstanding the skepticism with which the
conference is generally treated, the opinion is freely expressed that tho result
may be of considerable value and permanent. It is added that the exaggerated
hopes indulged in by some that the conference will do something to make war
well nigh impossible in the future have
not been fulfilled, but it is pointed out
that the conference is not therefore a
failure by any means.
The Cologne Gazette says: Although
the conference does not offer a guarantee
against war, it has erected a barrier
which in many cases may prove effective. The Pan-German Deutsche Zeitung
referring to the arbitration plan, is exceedingly uncomfortable over the thought
that Germany may be "caught in this
trap," and says it thinks the permanent
bureau will become the "arena for English intrigues.''
In treating the question some of the
papers point out that the United States
and Great Britain have not shown iu
practice as -much zeal for arbitration as
they have displayed at The Hague. The
refusal of the United States to arbitrate
the difficulty with Spain aiid Great Britain's refusal to settle the Transvaal difficulty are mentioned as inconsistent witli
their position at The Hague.
The sub-committee on arbitration had
a short session today in order to clear up
some objections from the minor powers
to the arbitration 'scheme,- prior to the
sitting of the committee ou Monday next.
The amendments proposed are calculated
simply to protect the minor powers that
they will not be forced to accept arbitration umvillingly at the hands of stronger

'-*■  Montana Man Looking for Mines.
The eight-hour law   does   not  seem  to
keep mining   men   of   recognized   ability
from looking up good properties.    George
Doyle of Nelson returned this week from
a trip t;o the headwaters of Kettle river,
wliere he   is   interested   in   placer claims
recently     discovered     there.     On      his
way out he met -I. L. Toole of Anaconda,
Montana,   who  is one  of  M;ireus Daly's
trusted experts.    Mr. Toole was going in
to look at the quartz   properties   belonging to the Old   Brothers   of   Fire  Valley
and Robert Shiell   of  Nelson,   which are
situate pn the main fork of  Kettle   river
and about thirty miles west of  the   Columbia  river.    Mr. Doyle  says  that the
placer ground in which   he  is   interested
will pay about a dollar a  yard, and that
the wash is about fifteen feet deep.    One
outfit  has  built  a  liume 3000 feet long
and others areopening up their  ground.
The  best  way   in is by way of Fire Valley, although there is considerable fallen
timber on the trail.

Barbarian Brown's Big Suit.
Victoria, July 15.—Another step has
been taken in tlie celebrated suit of R.
I'D. L. Brown, tlie America*"! mining engineer who is operating in the Slocan,
against the Tj-ansvaal gOVerunient, in
wliich nejtrly two lnilliQ!) dolhirs are involved.. Aii appeal to Washington to enforce the payment of tlie amount of the
judgment .secured by Brown has been
forwarded through, the American consul
here. This appeal sets forth tlie particulars of the litigation at great length, giving tlie judgment ofthe Ti-ansvaul chief
justice in Brown's favor, aud showing
how far tliis judgment was subsequently
dismissed' by president Kruger.
Cashier Short at Least $140,000.
Nb\v York, July 15.—It is estimated
. that the theft of George M. Valentine,
the defaulting cashier of Middlesex
county bank at Perth Amboy, New Jersey, will, amount to $110,000 or more.
The bank examiners are rushing their
work as rapidly as possible, but the exact amount will not be known until the
examination has concluded. Valentine
has made a confession in which he says
every cent of money was lost by him in
stock speculations.

An Acquittal fiooked For.
PiRls, July 15.—M: A^aughnj editor of
the advaneed Dreyfus organ, L'Aurore,.
the slightest doubt of the acquittal of
captain Dreyfus. I say this, not because
I have overwhelming confidence in tlie
idea of justice being done by the Rennes
court-im-i'tla., or aiiy other military tribunal, but because the court of cassation
has alL'eady outlined the course which
the Rehnos judges liiust folloAV. They
must confine their attention to the bordereau ; Otherwise tliey Will disregard
tlie decree of the highest court of Franco;
If the Reinies judges call new Avitnesses
or take new evidence they will be acting
like a second court of cassation. Tliat
would be a judicial paradox." If new
evidence should be given subsequent to
the examination, trial ot' whatever one
may please to call it, this might grow
out of tlie Rennes case, but the coming
trial must be confined exclusively to the
bordereau. Tlie officers of the Rennes
court-Jnartial know this perfectly well.
Alaska Boundary Dispute.
London, July 15,—There is a great deal
of anxiety regarding the Alaska boundary dispute in political circles, though
the general public does not attach Jiiuch
importance to the matter. Jingo papers
like the Saturday Review grasped the opportunity to air their anti-American proclivities. After asserting that the Canadians desire to finally decide the matter
by impartial arbitration while the United
States demands a tribunal wliich will
be either a farce or unlikely to settle
anything, the Review says : " AVe
cannot concede more to the United States
Avithout Canadian acquiescence, aud our
own experience in that direction does
not give much hope. If the Anglo-Saxon
entente does nothing to modify the
American attitude towards Alaska it
will have proved to be more useless than
the bubbles of the champagne in which
it floated, into existence;'' -.■..'

At Work iu Mines on Eagle Creek.
A business man   of  Nelson paid a visit
to Eagle creek yesterday for the purpose
of shedding a tear  OA'er  the ruined mining  industry  of  Nelson   district*   which
Avas out off in its prime by the eight-hour
laAV.    Upon his return he described it as
the liA'elicst corpse he had ever seen.    At
the  Granite   mine  he   found  a force of
about sixty men   working in Avhat promises to be one of the   best mines in West
Kootenay.    The bulk of  this work is being done  under  contracts,  and  tho men
say that they are  all   making the union
rate and  a   little   better.    On  the same
property   there  aro   also  about tAventy
men at work constructing a stamp mill,
wliich is   presuinablj-*  being  erected   for
the.purpose of attending the wake of the
great mining industry.    A short distance
from   the   Cranite    there    are   another
twenty men Avorking on the Royal Canadian, which is  being  operated  by'.virtually tlie  same company  as the Granite.

The Victim Was a Canadian.
The steamer Moyie, .Avhicli'arrived"-in
from Kootenay Landing on Friday night
brought full particulars of the homicide"
wliich  occurred at the  Port Hill dance
hall early Friday morning.   °The victim
Avas a 'Canadian   named AVilliain Reese,
who  Avas   the  proprieter of  the dance
hall.    From the story toldby passengers
on the Moyie the killing Avas in a measure done in self-defense.    It appears that
Reese was fighting  with one of the inmates of the dance hall  when Denruni,(.(,.
who is a peace officer, Interfered  to pre-
\rcnt the Avoman being injured.     Reese
then turned on the peace officer and the
latter beat a hasty retreat.     In retiring
he stumbled and fell over a log.     Reese
advanced upon the prostrate officer, the (■■-.
latter d re av a reA*x)lver and ordered him ?
to halt.     Reese paid no attention tb the
command  and, Denrum  then   fired, the:?
first    bullet   passing    through    Reese's i :
heart.    The  feeling   in the   vicinity -Of;
Port Hill is that the killing Avas justifiable.(yy
The .victim ofthe shooting came froni?

The   above  is  the  way the  Spokane  Chronicle heads  an  article  referring to  captain Duncan's remarks on  his  return  to Nelson from a trip to the  Queen Bess,  a mine in the Sloean which is uoav under  his" 'management.     Captain   Duncan   is  '* also,the reputed -manager of  the Granite  .and Royal Canadian mines in the neigh-.  . borhood of Nolson.    Tlie Queen" Bess is'a  L developed property andjias been'stocked  ��� in  the  old  country.   The ore minecLis  r good grade, and work was not suspended  .at the mine'because the ore had petered  out, but because the"management refused  ,to pay the skilled'millers Avorking underground   $8.50   for   an  eight-hour   shift.  The management -offered   $3,  and    the  miners  refused  to  accept the offer.    If  .the  country  is  ruined, who  is  more to  blame than  captain  Duncan?   But the  'country is not ruined, and captain  Duncan   kuoAA-s   that   it   is   not.      Captain  Duncan refused to pay $3.50 a day In tho  Slocan,  where  the  ore is  rich  ancl the  mines Avell  able to pay a good  rate of  Avages, yet he pays $8.50 a day at Nelson,  -where  his  mines  are   undeveloped  and  have not shipped a ton  of ore.    This is  -not-consistent.   IP the mines in tlie Slocan were shut  d0A\yu every time the pi'ice of mining supplies, such as poAvdei*, steel, rails, tiinljei'j  and candles, were increased, the eohhtry  AVpilId be "ruined" at least olice every  slx month... Tlie prices of steel and rails  have been  increased from   10 to 3,0 per  cent Avithin a year. The railways' have  advanced the freight rates on ore arbitrarily, and smelters have clone likeAvise  on treatment charges, but the mines Avere  not closed down. It is only when the  man Avho furnishes labor for the mines  raises his price that the "blue ruin"  cry is raised ancl mines are closed cIoavu,  yet labor is the one thing that cannot  avoII be dispensed with in operating a  mine successfully. The trouble is, there  is an irrepressible feeling of antagonism  between the men avIio manage mines and  the men avIio Avork wider them."

I think the first impression wliich  George Meredith made on me Avas that of  extraordinary and exuberant vitality.  When I saw-him for the first time lie had  left his younger days a long way behind  him, and yet he had the appearance and  the movements of one endowed with a  youth that could not fade; energy was in  every movement; vital power spoke in  every gesture. He loved bodily exercises  of all kinds; he delighted to take long,  brisk walks���"spins," as he called them���  along the highways and the byways of  the neighborhood, and he loved to wander through the woods, and to lie on the  : grass, and I have no doubt he would have  enjoyed climbing the trees. He seemed  to have in him much of the temperament  of the fawn ; he seemed to have sprung  from the very bosom of Nature herself.  His talk was wonderful, and, perhaps,  not the least wonderful thing about it  was that it seemed so very like his writing. Now it was Richard Feyeral who  talked to you, and iioav Harley Adrian,  tind then Beauchamp���not that he ever  repeated any of the recorded sayings of  these men, but that he talked as one could  imagine any of them capable of talking  on any suggested subject.  am not  sure that I  can  very  iq .what, Is sliQiil*;! wish.to  Now,  sCleayly  wrote the letter had spelled agricultural,  with two g.s. Parnell looked at the letter, smiled sadly, and handed it back to  inc. "Do forgive me," he said, "and tell  me all about it. 1 couldn't read through  a man's letter who spells agricultural  with' two gs." it Avas indeed a curious  stroke of fate wliich [.led the unhappy  author of the Parnell forgeries to ornament his letters with flagrant examples  of bad spelling. -  Merits  of the Corset.  Chicago Chronicle.  Students at the North London collegiate school for girls recently held a  friendly contest Avhieh for novelty certainly took front rank. For a long time  routine school work 'had been sadly interrupted day after day by animated discussions concerning the merits or demerits of wearing corsets. It Avas finally  decided to settle the matter by a practical exhibition.  The non-Avearers of corsets issued a defi  to cope with the corset-inclosed girls in  any form of exercise suggested. The  challenge AA'as accepted instanter and  sixteen girls AA'ere selected on either side.  No men Avere admitted to vieAV the test  but it is safe to say that tickets for the  performance, if put up at auction, Avould  have brought prices to make prize light  figures blush into the background.  The first trial was'at leaping. Neither  side scored an appreciable advantage.  The average- leap for the corset 'wearers'5  Avas _'��� feet.7 inches,-while the abstainers  made an average of 3 feet 6 1-11 inches.  Then came a long leap, in which the corset champions cleared 9 feet 1 1-4 inches,  and 'their ������rivals 9 feet 4-11 inches.  Among the non-corset wearers, however,  AA*as one girl avIio out-stripped them all  Avith a leap of twelve feet.  All the girls had trained hard for the  tug-of-Avar. The sixteen aa'Iio never wore  the Avaist embracers easily had an advan-  tage OA'er their sisters, aa'Iio were tAvice  dragged OA'er the line. On the programme there AA'as also an endurance run,  in which it Avas shown that the corset  girls had an advantage in the matter of  respiration rates. In the way of pulse  rates the other side scored. The breathing capacity furnished a good test and  the corset wearers Avere found to have  had their capacities diminished by 0.8  cubic inches. On the other hand, after  the hard run, the abstainers' breathing  capacity was found to have increased 4.1  cubic inches.  The test didn't definitely decide the  question, but it gave the young Avomen a  novelty with plenty of fun thrown iii.  Milks Six Cows at Once.  In Germany they haA'e invented n. machine for milking the cow. The inventor  is named JMurchland, and his machine is  now in successful operation. The principle of the machine is merely suction  through long tubes. The advantages of  it are the -saving of expense and the  greatly increased cleanliness due to the  fact that human hands do not have to  come in contact AA'ith the coav or the milk.  An iron tube, about an inch and a half in  diameter, runs all around the coav shed  at a-height of about three feet'above the  animals' shoulders. This is the distributing pipe, and from it descends to the side  of each -animal, a sterilized rubber tube,  ending in the milk reservoir, placed under  the cow. These reservoirs are of cylindrical form and air tight, Avith a thick  glass  cover.    From the.reservoir,'a''tube  FULL LINE OF  with four mouths connects with the four  udders of the cow. Instead of a handle,  the reservoir litis two hooks at the side,  to which is attached a hand, AA'hich passes  over the coav's body and holds the reser-  A'oir at the right place.' All the tubes are  in connection with a groat cylinder, installed in the ceiling, and from Avhieh a  tube descends vertically into a vat of  pure Avater. A hand pump serves  to draw the air out of the cylinder.  Rarefaction takes place aud extends  throughout the system of the tubes.  The connection between the pneumatic  cylinder and the vat of water serves to  regularize the pressure. A few strokes  of the pump starts the work of milking  the coaa'.s. There is a faucet at the end  of the tube leading to each reservoir, and  as soon as this is opened, the AA'ork of  milking begins.  HOTEL   ARRIVALS.  TREMOXT.  II. Fr anncl", JCaslo I Mr*. A.

Presently a iJoWerf.nl voice filled the hall,  iind I soon became carried aWliy by a  flood of noble eloquence, the like of .which  1 had not heard .since some of the most  'Splendid efforts of Bright or Gladstone,  I could not help whispering' to my Wife,  who was with me, "Why, this man is a  greater speaker than Wendell Phillips."  It Was,, in fact, Wendell Phillips himself,  whom I had not before that time had a  chance of hearing at his very best. I  have ahvays thought it���selfishly  thought it, perhaps���a pity that fortune  did not place Phillips in the house of  ��� cqmmons." How he would have sustained  thp cause of Gladstone, and rivaled the  eloquence of Bright, and outsatirized the  satire of Disraeli, and answered Avith  pitiless sarcasm the" sarcasms of Robert  Low!    I once handed Charles Stuart Parnell a  letter which I had received from a constituent of mine, asking me to call Par-  noil's attention to soine improvement  ��� which lie'thought might be made in a bill  then .-before the: house dealingwith' the  , subject of agricultural occupation of Ireland.   2 Unluckily ��� the   poor . man ../.who/  LODGE   MEETINGS.

The other evening  the ex-ol'/ieeholdec was impressing upon  some of Nelson's visitors the sagacity of  the government of which he was a member in having Nelson reserved as a government townsite. The way he put the  matter was that lie sent captain Fitv.-  sttibbs up to Nelson to reserve and stake  oil' the townsite.  The Miner yesterday morning took occasion to enlarge upon the blunders of a,  Ti!im*i\i'_ reporter in connection with his  account of a real estate transfer which  was put through by Messrs. Gamble &  O'Reilly. Among other inaccuracies the  Miner complained that the name of the  purchaser was not given correctly, it  then stated the name of the purchaser as  Thomas Raymond. Messrs. Gamble &  0'J.ioiI'ly yesterday requested Tin.  Ti*ihi;a'I_ to correct the Miner's error, as  the name of the purchaser is .Thomas  Itayiion and not Raymond.  A row occurred at the Bank of Montreal building yesterday morning which  Avill probably be ventilated in the police  court. Thomas Powell, a mason, and  David Laclare, a hod carrier, were  the principals. They had words over  the maimer/in Avhieh Laclare was doing  his work.

It  weighs six and a. half tons, and is the  largest boiler ever taken up to the  mine.  Although two weeks have elapsed  since the six special constables quilled  the Ymir mine, .I. Roderick Mobertson  has neglected so far to return the special  police badges with which his kniclcer-  bocker brigade were armed. This omission gives rise to the rumor that the president; of the board of trade intends to  use the badges ,again for six special constables to be sworn in I'or Tuesday afternoon's meeting of the South Kootenav  Hoard of Trade.  At the meeting of the board of license  commissioners for the Nelson district,  which was held in the court house yesterday morning, the application of  ���Joseph Campbell of Erie for a hotel  license was granted.
