 AN EXTORTIONATE DEMAND CUT  Down to a Fair Figure.  At the meeting of the city council today the report of tlie valuators upon the  value of the lots expropriated by the  city as a site for the waterworks reservoir  will be presented. The valuators���Harold  ; Selous, Alexander Stewart and W. J. G.  Dickson���are men who are capable of fixing a close valuation, and what they  jointly arrive tit may safely be takon as  the valuation of the hind in dispute.  The valuators Avere instructed to place  a liberal valuation upon the property,  and although the exact figures will not  be published before they are reported to  the council, Tun Tiumtnu is informed  that the valuators will return the value  of the seven lots expropriated by the  city fit between $500 and $000. The  actual saleable value of the lots in question is considerably below these ligures,  but in accordance with the instructions  of the city council the value was increased to save the city costs in the event  of the 'dispute going to arbitration.  The valuators" will not allow the Nelson City Land and improvement Company anything for alleged damage to  property adjacent to the reservoir nor  for the crossing ���of lots by the-waterworks Hume. With respect to the iirst  claim they will find that instead of having damaged the property, the reservoir  has made hitherto unsaleable lots saleable. It has enabled persons desiring to  build to secure water, and the result has  been that nearly all the hind company's  lots in the vicinity of the reservoir have  been sold. The claim for damages for  the crossing of lots by the water-works  Hume is dismissed for the reason that the  city agrees to replace the flume by a pipe  line down the streets. o  TUESDAY MORNING, AUGUST 8,  1899.

Bar IIaruor,'Maine, August 0.���With  the lightest of hearts, amid laughter and  exchange of merry comment, near a  score of excursionists ran to their death  at Mount Desert ferry today. The catastrophe was frightful iu the extreme, for  it came while scores of persons, young  and old, were penned into a trap, to escape from which they fought with desperation against great odds. It was the  Worst accident remembered in the history  of the state and especially in the case of  the Maine Central railway.  The Maine Central railway today ran  excursions to Bar Harbor from all sections of the line, the attraction being the  warships which were expected today.  The train, which left Bangor  at     S:25,    consisted     ofL    twelve     cars,  -jammed with people. At Mount Desert  ferry the train is left for the boat for'an  eight mile _sail to Bar* Harbor. - The  trains run out on the wharf and it is a  stop from train to boat. ������ The' slip was  hinged at the inner end, the outer end  being supportedJ by chains by which it  was raised or lowered to suit the tide.  The wharf extends on both sides. ' When  the excursion train arrived at the ferry  there was a rush for the steamer Sappho.  The first passengers" had crossed the  plank safely, and it is said 200 people  were massed upon the plank. Suddenly  they felt the plank give way. The long  timber supporting the plank broke in the  middle. The hinges held up one cud  and the chain the other while the broken  ends of the plank dropped, and a struggling, screaming mass of humanity was  plunged into the Avater fifteen feet beIoA\  the wharf. A few clung to the inclined  sides of the plank, but at least 150 were  struggling in the Avater. The piling of  the Avharf partially penned them in on  three sides and the boat lying at the  Avharf closed the outer end of the opening.    The exact number of dead will not  -be knoAvn_foi'-Sonie_tinie_y_et, as a strong  tide sweeps under the pier and some may  have been carried aAVay by it. A diver,  who Avas set to work without delay, was,.-  engaged in the search, but only seventeen bodies were found.  Edmonton's Now Paper.  T. A. C.'regg, at one time editor of the  .Miner of this town, has got out the first  number of the Edmonton Post, Avhicli is  a well printed and carefully edited wide-  column paper.. He says: "While the  Post must alws'iys regard the Conservative party as the truly national party of  Canada, the party indivisibly linked by  history and tradition Avith the growth  and progress of this country towards'national status, the party whose theories  and principles of government have made  and are now making for the greatest good  of the Canadian poople, yet this paper  distinctly disa.voA\rs' any intention of giving to that party or to any politicians  the shwish and insensate support such  as is expected from a reckless partisan  press, and reserves the right of independent criticism of the public acts of public  men Avhen occasion arises."  School Directors Elected.  A meeting of the freeholders and householders of the Hume school district Avas  held yesterday iu the little Baptist  church. W. N. Gilchrist Avas appointed  chairman and A.Av". Peck secretary of  the meeting. E. A. Crease, A. W. Peck  and R. H. Williams -were elected trustees  iu the aboA^e order. . At a subsequent  meeting of the board E. A.. Crease Avas  appointed chairman and R. H. Williams  secretary. A site of four lots in block 11  has been promised the district, and the  government- has promised to erect the  school building. A meeting of the trustees will be held this afternoon in E. A.  Crease's office.  Apparent Reason Not the Real Reason*  Q'r����v\VA,,Ajugi'ist "7.��� A debate Avas precipitated in the house today on the Intercolonial raihray. Blair criticized the  senate, for amending the Grand Trunk  amendment bill. He .showed that tlie  reason given by the seriate for changing  the bill Avas not apparent. The senate  said it Avtis to prevent Avest-going freight  finding its way to Manitoba, the Northwest and British Columbia by American  roads. All freight that Originated on the  Intercolonial for British Columbia, tlie  NorthAvest aud Manitoba last year aviis  7(1 tons, at a cost of $218. He gave statistics to show that the receipts for the  Intercolonial for the year ending June  80th last were $3,738,321, aiid���AVorking  expenses aud whole outlay Avere $3,075,-  OSO, leaving a surplus of $(52,<M5. There  Avas paid out of this revenue $210,000 for  rental to the Drummond County railway.  There was also paid $75,000 more out of  the revenue for repairs than iu 1890.  Yacht Racing at Toronto.  Toronto, August 7.���The six Canada  cup defenders met today for the first  time. Throe races Avere called in Lake  Ontario off Toronto Island in a moderate  breeze shifting from southeast to south  and northAA'est, and again a trifle Avest.  The time of the finish of the first race  oA'er a nine mile triangular course. Avas :  Beaver 12.33-4.0, Toronto 1.2.35-45, Minota  12.30-40,Hamilt6n 12.37-45, Myrtle 12.38,  Weir 12.41.25. The second race over the  same triangular course decided on elapsed  time resulted in Toronto  1.51-09, Minota  THE SAWMILL TRUST IS STILL  Under Consideration by Mill Men.  Another meeting of the sawmill men of  Kootenay was held at Rossland on Sat-  urdiiy evening. The object of the men  A\rho met at Rossland was entirely different from that of the JuiU'men Avho met  in this city two weeks ago. At the last  meeting in Nelson the object Avas merely  too pool the output of the different mills  around Kootenay and Slocan,lake and  river points, and, by having one central  selling office for all mills in the combine,  raise the price of dimension lumber to  $12. This meeting failed in results and  an indefinite postponement was taken.  The object of Saturday evening's conference at Rossland Avas the revival of  the project of forming a lumber trust of  all the leading mills in Southeastern British Columbia. Alderman Hillyer, Avho  Avas present as the representative of the  Nelson Saw & Planing Mills, Limited,  said to a TrunuNia representative yesterday there AA-as a fair prospect of the deal  being put through. The promoter of the  trust, who is a llosslaud man, claims that  the money is ready in England to purchase outright all the sawmills in the district affected should a. sufficient number  of the mill men agree to sell at a figure  fixed by valuators to be appointed. Just  who the promoter of the trust is aldcr-  "mairHillyerdeclinedtostate^butlieiidded-  that he was a man avIio AA-as well known  in London and Avho enjoyed no small  measure of the confidence of the financiers there, whi'eli gave .considerable  Aveight to the assurances which he had  given to the saAvinill OAVners.  News Txoxa the North.  VlcfoHlA, August'7.���Among the passengers arriving by the Rosalie, tins  .mornliigWas J?. R. I��er, of'���Brae'kman &������  Kef of this city, AV'ho jiaft been to DaAV-  sot'i and Atlin on business. Mr. Iversays:  "1 left Dawson On July 22nd, coining up  the river on the steamer Canadian,  Avhich jiiadu a record trip. Site  covered the diftance from DaAV-  son to White Horse rapids in three  days, twenty-one hours and fifty-five  minutes, thus winning a purse of $500  offered by Norman Macaulay to the first  boat that should make the run in less  than four days. We saAV the steamer  Tyrrell on the beach just below Five Finger rapids. She  struck a. large boulder while going  through the rapids, stove in Her side and  received some slight damage to her boiler. There are several boulders in the  place where the Tyrrell struck and the  government has decided to blow them up.  Killed by a Fakir.  Victoria, August 7.���.Captain McCos-  kri of the Princess Louise has given tlie  police information that the so-called  divine healer, of Avhose mission here one  Eugene Brooks is head, is responsible for  the death of his young son. It seems  that Mrs. McCoskri Avas prevailed. upon  by converts to g'iAre up her regular physician and resort to divine healing, under  which treatment the boy died during the  captain's .absence from,tlie city. ...  THE DREYFUS COURT MARTIAL  Has Opened at Rennes.  Ri'iNNiss, August 7.���The proceedings of  the court martial before which captain  Dreyfus is on trial opened this morning.  Dreyfus entered the court with a firm  step, though his features Avere pallid. He  is partly bald, and Avhat hair he litis is  grey and closely cropped. He answered'  the formal questions of the judge as to  his name, age, etc. in a clear determined  voice. After satisfying the judge he. remained with his hands resting on his  knees, an impassible figure. The trial  opened as far as Rennes is concerned in  atmosphere of a perfect tranquility. The  population is apparently indifferent.  On the court proceeding to the roll call  of Avitnesses the most notable being Es-  terhazy, du Paty de Clam and Madme  Pays, Dreyfus half turned his head towards the seats of the Avitnesses, espeei-.  -ally Avhen the clerk of the court called  Esterha/.y. But Avhen no response-was'  received Dreyfus returned to his previous  attitude looking straight in front of him.  Altogether about a hundred Avitnesses  will be called on both sides.  M. Paleologue offered .to furnish the  court Avith all the necessary explanations  respecting the secret dossier, and the depositions, as Avitnesses -would be dispensed  Avith, adding that the consideration of  the dossier would probably occupy four  days. The court afterwards retired to  deliberate upon the case of the absentee  Avitnesses, the soldiers iu the court room,  iu response ��� to the .word of command of  the lieutenant in charge, carrying and  presenting arms, the judges leaving and  re-entering to the" rattle of rifles as the  line of soldiers brought their weapons,  like a piece of machinery, smartly to the  "present" and then dropped their butts  heavily to the ground. Dreyfus Avithdrew  into an inner room during the court's  retirement. On the final return of the  court major Carriere said he thought the  absence of Esterha/.y ought not to prevent the trial proceeding. "Let him come  or not," he said, "it matters nothing to  us." The clerk of the court AAras ordered  to read M, de Moschevillc's bill of indictment 194, which he did iu a loud voice,  Dreyfus in the- meantime listening unmoved as the old' charges against him  were read. Colonel Jouast read the-  bordereau ���and afterwards asked:" "In"  1S90 you were at Bourges?"  "Yes my colonel," Dreyfus replied.  Joutist���"The  120 brake Avas then  being made and you Avere iii  a position to  know the construction of the brake?"  "I kneAv the principle of it." "  "Had you any  information  respecting  its working ?"  "No, I did not knoAv the  details, never  having Avorked it."  ,'Did you have any brake at the military school?"  "1 don't remember."  "At the beginning of 1S94 you  entered  the general stall" ?"  "Yes, my colonel."  "Have you talked on gun 120 and its  brake?"  Dreyfus, Avho had then regained his  composure, spoke distinctly in a way  which carried conviction with it. Ans-  Avering the last question he said: "No,  1 never had any knoAvledge of this gun,  Avhile I was in the bureau of the general  staff.-'   " The second document of the bordereau relates to mobilization ; had you any  knowledge thereof ? " "I Vvas not in that  part of the bureau dealing'with mobilization." "You had to do Avitli transports ; now when the regulations concerning the conveying of troops in 1894  were modified there Were difficulties in  ensuring the transport of troops, and  provisional, measures Averd taken Avhich  .were changed in the folloAving Spring.  Did yon know of these difficulties" "1  had no knowledge of this, question in,  1891. I hud certain documents concerning the provisioning and conveying of  troops."' " You had papers in your possession intended for print?" "Yes, 1  sometimes made mistakes in the bureau  to Avhich they should be sent." "You  had these papers twice?*' "tI did not  have any confidential document."  " You must have known the contents  of these documents ? "  " I never asked for them from any  one."  " The third document .related to artillery formations ? You ought to be acquainted with this matter ? "  " No."  " Major Morin Milon sent you special  documents from the fifteenth to the twentieth of ��� July, 189'J, .a month before the  date of the bordereau." "I only had incomplete information." " At the of 1:891  had you knowledge of information sent  to lieutenant Bacby the third bureau of  the effectiveness of the batteries of the  120 guns ?    " No."  Jouast, Avith a movement of impatience. "This is astonishing. .The bureau  knows Avhat documents pass from one to  the other."  " What I say is correct."  ..', "I turn to the fourth document, a note  referring to  Madagascar.  "There fire tAvo papers.  A corporal Avho  who  copied them saAv   you   pass  them  through   his office   going to the colonel's  room."  "I went through occasionally."  " You could have  obtained   this  document from the corporal's desk ?  "This is not usual."  " No, but it could be done. The copying was finished on the 20th and the bordereau dates from several days later.  Noav, for the fifth document; The proposed firing manual for field artillory,did  you know the contents of the manual."  " No, never."  ���'A Avitness says you communicated it  to him." ' "    *  "No.    No."  "A major lent you this firing manual?"  "No, my colonel, I deny it absolutely."  Dreyfus then entered into an explanation of dates, but his memory failed him.  Colonel Jouast then brought up the  famous pnrase, "I am starting for the  manoeuvres." He said: "You had never  been to the manoeuvres because it Avas  the custom for only probationers to go,  but at the date of the bordereau you did  not know you would uot go?" -  "There had been fresh orders given."  Major Carriere here intervened, saying;  "But there 'were two sets of orders given.  It Avas September Avhen it Avas decided  not to send the probationers to the manoeuvres."  Jouast���"What work Avere you engaged in on the fourth and fifth- bureaux?"  Dreyfus enumerated the different tasks,  adding: "I Avas only occupied Avith current matters, and perhaps a feAv studies,  of which I forget the subject."  "At the military school you ' were reproached Avith saying tlje Alsatians Avere  happier as Germans than as Frenchmen."  "No, I never utttered such Avords."  "I-Ioav do you account for the bad note  against you Avritten by a certain general?"  "He said he Avantcd no Jews on the  general staff."  "How did you Iciioav what ho said?"  L   "Througlr conversation:"'  "You attributed this bad note to 'your  religion ?"        .     , n "_    - -  "Yes."  '-"In 1S92 you wont to Mnlhonse ; Avhat  did yoiv do there?" " .  "I AA'cnt there three  times  by  Avay of  Basle, Avithout a  passport.    Once  1   arrived at my house I never Avcnt out."  "You went there in 1S70?"  "Possibly."  "Did you folloAv the  German  manoeuvres?"  "No."  '���Didyou con verse with German officers?"  "I deny it absolutely,"  "What Avas your object in  going  to  Basle?"  "For instructions "  "You studied transports?"  "Yes."  "You   Avrote   certain   information respecting tlie manufacture  of  the  Bobin  shell.    You said this information was requested by a professor of a school."'  "This whs false."  "I am told you asked officers indiscrete  questions."  "It is not true."   llPid.yon, go to Brussels in 1891 ?" _  "No, I affirm it."  "A witness affirms you went."  "It is false."  "You had relations with a Avoniau?"  "Yes."  '"How coold yon have such relations  and you .an officer on the genera.'! stall"?"  "I committed no indiscretion."  "Ye-nr books were Avell kept. You had  special resources. Passing through the  Champs Msyees in 1891 yon remarked,  "Here liV'os a certain liidy,;'suppose we  call on lie!-. 1 have lost heavy kuiiih at  her hoiise."1  "it is false. 1; have never gambled,  never, never."  "Did   you   know   major   dn.   Paty  de  Clam?"  " No."  "Did you know-major Henry?"  " No."  "You  have  no  m,oti\'e for  animosity  against them?"  .   "No."  " And Colonel Picqitart ? "  " I don't know him."  "And colonel Esterha/.y?"  "I don't know him."  " You never wrote him?"  " No."  " Colonel du Paby de Clam says that  your writing at his dictation avus firm  when he made you undergo a trial on the  day of your arrest."  " My writing has not much changed."  Here a non-commissioned officer avIio  was standing in front of major Carriere  crossed the platform and handed Dreyfus  his Avriting on the day of his,arrest.  .-��� Dreyfus replied by insisting that there  avos nothing to show any perceptible  change in his handwriting. Colonel  Jouast. then spoke of the interview with  du Paty de  Chun   and   Dreyfus replied:  "I noA'er conversed or had any  relations  with du Paty de Clam."  "When he went to see you-in the  Cherche Midi prison, Avhat passed between you ?"  ��� "He asked me if 1 had not given unimportant information in order to obtain  other information. I replied no and  added that it avjis iniquitous to condemn  an innocent man. 1 also asked him to  beg the minister of war to seek full light  on the affair."  " Did you not say to him, referring to  foreign military that you would cut his  throat-with a poniard.".  " No, I asked du Paty de Clam to have  the investigation continued," I said :  "Any goArernnient which has means-', of  instigation can have, the foreign military  attaches questioned."  "If I .were in his place, rather than  have an innocent "���man condemned I  ���Syould force them to speak even if I had  to hold  a dagger to their throats."  "Col. Jouast then said: "Coming to the  day of your degradation, AA'hat passed  between you and captain Lebrun Renault ?   What did you tell  him ?  " Nothing, it was really a sort of broken.monologue, on my part. I felt that  everyone kneAv of the crime with Avhich"  I Avas charged, and I Avished to say I Avas  not the guilty party. I hoped to make  it clear that the criminal A\'as not he  Avhom they had before their eyes, and I  said 'Lebrun, I Avill cry aloud Avith my  innpeence in the face of the people.' "  " Did you not say : The minister  knoAVS that I handed over the documents." :  " No. If I spoke, of a minister" Avho  ,kuew I Avas innocent I referred to a conversation I previously-, had had with du  Paty de Clam.  Here occurred one of the most dramatic  scenes in the examination. Dreyfus became terribly excited, SAvaycd to and fro  for a minute, aud then all his pent up  emotion and indignation burst forth  and he cried in a piercing voice, heard  throughout the court and;'even'.by those  standing outside:  "It is iniquitous to  condemn an innocent man.    I nevei;..dicl anything, neA'er."  Dreyftis, as he littered the Avords, raised  ; antf--0nes>i.u .return��?"������; \y$CsAi*;��: M ���.����"���".*>,  -s'ay thVe%,yea;ifs?��'V."

During the visit of city solicitor Gal-  liher and city clerk Straiian to Victoria,  the desire of the corporation to secure  Avater for poAver purposes from one of  the falls iu the Kootenay river Avill again  be laid before the members of the executive. Although some interest has been c  created in this matter, it is not in any  sense a ucav question. It Avas before" the  city council in 1898, Avhen it \A'as ascertained that the securing of the water  was a seeoudary consideration to the securing of a site for a poAver house. At  that time mayor Houston and the city  engineer McCulIoch paid a visit to .what  Avas considered a desirable site, but the  difference in the Hoav at high and Ioav  ���water presented an obstacle'which it was  thought should be circumvented by the  choice of some other site.  The question Avas next brought to the  attention of the  present city  council by  W.  A.  Macdonald, while he AA'as  acting  city solicitor.    He called the attention of  the council to the  desirability of taking  steps at once to secure an amendment to  the Municipal  Clauses  Act, whereby"the  corporation \vould   be   placed upon  an  equal footing Avith private corporations,  in the recording of* 'water.    The depart- \  mental an thorities at Victoria acquiesced'  in the request for the: necessary amend-���  ment to the municipal  act to the  extent  of asking the acting city solicitor to draft v  the desired amendment. ' A copyof "thev  proposed  amending bill  Avas afterAvards : ���  forAvarded to the city council and it Avas  generally    thought , that   the    desired";  amendment  Avould be made to'the actV -  but in  some  unaccou ntable  Avay it was ':  o\rerlooked.^   It is therefore necessary for ;'  the council  to get some 'assuaran.ee. that  tlie desired amendment  Avill be  inserted  during   the   next  session   of the   legislature  aiid in  the meantime  ascertain a';.��  desirable  site  for  a power station  and r  and take such steps as may be necessary ���  to hold it.

'X&  Now thai the City has taken over the  Hall-street wharf, no end of suits for  damages may be looked for. The City, in  taking over the Avharf, has added fit least  $10,000 annually to the takings of the  members of the learned profession who  practice la,Av iu the town. The City is  good pay, and il nearly ahvays pays the  "bills of the huvycrs engaged on both sides  ,,  in the suits in Avhich it is a party.  TjfK'secrec meeting of  the Mine Mana-  , gors* Union,  held   ab  Sandon  last week,  was a stormy one.    Several of the "mem-  bers-who manage mines in  the ncighbor-  . hood of Sandon resented Avhat they called  "the " domineering pomjiousness" of men'  from other districts; and they "threatened  - to withdraw from the union.       "   -  The newspapers that oppose the Son-.  lin government; tire becoming hysterical.  The appointment  to and  acceptancp  of  . the  attorney-generalship  by  Alexander  Henderson, M.P.P., of- New AVcstininsleiy  aud his'cerla'iirre'-elcction are not  in accordance^ Avith   the   predictions  of   the  hoAvling'dervishes that control  the   Victoria Globe,,Vancouver World, Kainloops  Standard,  Vernon  Noavs,  and, last .and  "least,  the   Miner  of   this  town.    These  "howlers have  had  fin accession to their  ranks in the person of the  editor  of the  Greenwood  Miner.    He claims to  know  all about Iioav  governments   should  be  '-rumrfor he"foiartiine-JilleTpfclle-office of  mm wmm &  Headquarters for  provincial  librarian..  He  says0 that the  men now in office fire a lot of incapables.  This may be a statement of fact, but avc  have a contrary statement  from   a man  avIio Avas not  kicked   out  of  office when  the present government  took  charge of  affairs, and we prefer to lake his opinion,  for no other man in the province  is in a  better position to actually know Iioav the  business  of the  province  is  conducted.  His statement is Unit the business of the  province is well conducted���much better  than Avhen Messrs. Turner, Martin, Baker  amhKberls had the direction   of affairs  Other  testimony  comes   from  Victoria,  and it is that the  lands 'and   Avorks.department is in bettor  shape  today than ���  fit  any/time  since   the department' Avas  created.    None  of  i*hi.s. testimony "conies  from active politicians.  Tiih eleven men imported from Stid,-  bury, Ontario, to Avork six months-in the  Ymir mine, ca'Cd if a saving of fifty cents  a day is made in their Avagcs, will cost  that mine fi pretty penny. Their urans-  portation from Sudbury to the mine "cost  in the neighborhood of $500. Two men  are hired-at $2.50 a day to "protect"  them ftom the hiw-abiding people of  Ymir. Tlie apparent saving in Avagcs  Avill be $1003.75 at a cost of $ Mi 2.50 for  transportation and "protection".  As time passes, the people of Nelson  are beginning to realize that the men  Avho were entrusted with the business affairs of the City during the first two  years  did  not   overlook  finy  of its  in-  cil of 1807 believed that $500 was a fail-  price to pay for the ground needed, and  now, after two years, three valuators  ��� every one of whom opposed the return  to office of the; members of that council���A-aluo the property fit that figure.  The council of that year set apart $750  to pay for the land in question, but the  money was, without the knowledge of  the council, diverted to the "trust" fund  of a lawyer avIio was supposed to be looking after the City's interests. In the matter of power for the City's future} needs,  the men then in office took preliminary  steps to acquire Avhat alderman Beer is  now claiming credit for doing. The truth  of the matter is, the old council were business men of few words, Avhile the present  council is just tins opposite.   ���  Tim Mi nor says that hankers are not  entitled to be named in the same class of  business men as mine managers. Is this  because the Miner recently changed wet  nurses?  Tim City has  already  paid something  over $1000 to legal   gentlemen   foi   thei  aid in purchasing a piece of land that  is  valued fit $500.  Henderson a Sure Winner.  Victoria Times  George Kennedy, of the Now Wcstmin-  s(or Columbian, who came over from the  Mainland hist evening, encourages the  opinion Unit if Mr. Henderson accepts the  vacant portfolio, his re-election would not  be a difficult matter, the chance of having a cabinet minister as a representative  being of importance to any constituency  and a powerful lever for anyone to go  back for re-election Avith. Others equally  well informed as to the situation in New  Westminster are confident of Mr. Henderson's return.  mm^.^mmmm^.mm  The Metal Markets.  -Bar silver 00!  i >  J8 ; silver   certificates,  Brokers   $18.75 @  $10.

The prospectus'of a  trading company  in   this  province,, to  be styled  Turner,  Beeton & Co., Limited,  British Columbia  and London, has  been issued  in London.  This is  the company  in connection with  which Hon. J. H. Turner  visited London  about a year ago.    Mr.  Turner, before  completing all the arrangements, had bo  return   to    Victoria.      Tlie    prospectus  states  that the  capital of the projected  company   has   been   fixed  at   ��140,000,  divided into 14,000 six per  cent aceumti-  lativeopreference  shares of ��5 each, and  14,000�� ordinary    shares   of    the   same  amount.    The object of the new organization is to secure control of the business  hitherto  carried on  in British Columbia  and.London by-Turner, Beeton & Co., II.  C. Beeton <fc Co., and likewise that carried  on in Victoria by'Leiiz & Leiser.    These  are all  old-established,   well-known concerns in this  province, and from London  we learn that there is no doubt whatever  as to the successful  flotation of the company.    The  vendors,  we   are .informed,  will-take   the   whole   of   the ordinary  shares in  part payment of the purchase  "money,'while the public is invited to subscribe  for   the preference   shares..   The  purchase consideration has been fixed at  ��120,000,  payable ��50,000  cash, and  the  balance of ��70,000  in fully paid up ordinary shares.

Should Not Accept Passes.  Toronto Telegram.  A member of parliament should not accept ft railway pass, and the unfortunate  truth is that all the members and senators fit Ottawa, with the exception of  Hewitt Bostock, M.P., and two or three  -. others, are tlie recipients of free, transportation'. It is urged against B. L. Richard-  sou/M.P.,; by  the   Winnipeg  organ   of  Clifford Sifton, that he travels on a  pass.    TIm: same charge would lie agninst  l-Yank   Oliver, M.P.,   and W.   W.   B.  Me-  inncs, M.P.    Nobody   feels that   the railways are being   robbed when   they carry  members  of parliament free:  tlie objection   is to the  country being   robbed   by  the influence which the paws system exerts upon its beneficiaries in   parliament.  If a man   stands up for   tlie people, they  neod not stop to ask whether he carries a  pass  or not, and if a -member  stands in  with the  railways he need  not complain  if his .subserviency is explained by his acceptance of a pass.    The record of Frank  Oliver, R. L. Richardson, and, except for  that  unfortunate  Kettle   River   Valley  charter,  W. W.   B. Mclnuos,  M. P., lifts  these members far find away above the  other  representatives of Western Canada.    It  may be   true,  as  the Winnipeg  Free  Press  says,   that  Mr.   Richardson  carries  a pass.    It  is  true  that Hewitt  Bostock, M.P., does not travel on a pass.  It is also true that Mr. Richardson or Mr.  Oliver  in public zeal and courageous independence is worth fi dozen of Mr. Bostock^ who means well but is always overcome by the influence of the government  before he can translate  his  good  intentions into good fictions.  Too Many Laws. ;  A great many people, a majority of  mankind, in fact, and probably an unusual majority in the United States and  Canada, believe that social and economic  evils can be cured by more laws. That  is aiuistake. When it comes to'making  new laws .against this combine or that  combine, or this or that evil, the forces  entrenched behind capital will either get  into the "'law some subtle and hidden  amendment that gives them still iriore  power, or they will let a law go through  in such clumsy shape that it will break  down by its own weight, or be over turned in the courts.

Viviahi'sbill empowering duly qualified women to practice  as lawyers; It inay be recalled that a  yeflr a^o a young woman named Mllei  Oh&uviu, who had passed the reqitire=-  lnents of the French bai-, Was denied enrol Inient as ah advocate of the appefil  Court.

Chauvin will file  a now application for enrollment among  the barristers of tlie appeal court next  October* find it is considered as quite Cer^  tain that her example will be followed  by other Women, who, like her, have passed the rather severe examinations of the  law school. Although not admitted as a  barrister, Mile. Chauvin has for solne  months been established as consulting  lawyer at Passy. In her(. rooms at the  Villa de Medicis she gives consultations  daily to anybody who chooses to utilize  her profound knowledge of the codes.  Most of her clients are of her own sex, but  she is frequently consulted by barristers,  for'whom she prepares cases.  Professor Milton Updegraff, who for  the last eight years has held the chair of  astronomy in the University of Missouri,  has been appointed professor of mathematics in the United States navy, with  the pay and rank of senior lieutenant.  He will be stationed at the navy observatory near Washington.- The appointment is one held in high regard by astronomers, being for life at a Comfortable  salary and with large opportunity for  scientific research. Professor Updegraff  'will.'resign his place.in.the university,  probably  to take effect in September.  Tommy Atkins' feet.  The British government has discovered  that Thomas Atkins has feet, and that  those members sometimes prove fruitful  soil for corns, bunions, chilblains, blisters, and beside that the toe-nails have a  tendency to grow inward instead of outward, which perplexes his soul because it  vexes Ins-flesh. Tt has also been found  by years of experience that sore-footed  soldiers are not more useful'than cavalry  horses with the heaves. Therefore, the  pedtil extremities of Thomas are to be  looked after by official chiropodists, who  will make periodical enquiries of the line  as to how are their poor feet. They will  also lecture on the value of soap as a foot  dressing, find explain the pathological effect of wearing clean socks. If, with all  this care, Mr. Atkins continues to enjoy  sore feet it will be plainly apparent that  he should be in the navy aiul not in the  army. Thus the science of war is becoming more and more a. study of the raAV  materials of a battle. The better the  condition they are kept in the more effective they will be in the charge and on  the firing line. Some day the generals  of the industrial army will make a similar discovery. Then better results will  be attained, because men will not everlastingly be strained to the limit of  physical endurance.  FULL LINE OF  HOTEL  p. K.
