 Pr,  '0vkclai ri#V ^  M. CAVA1CNAC GIVES EVIDENCE  Before the  Conrt-Martial.  ' Risnnks, August 14.���There was a. great  sensation when M. Demange mentioned  the opinion expressed by M. H.-irthout  that general Billot had been forewarned  in regard to the forgery., of lieutenant  Henry. The acknowledgment that Henry  was a forger was among the faetors  arousing his doubts. Continuing, general Billot said he was immensely surprised and deeply affected by the revelation of forgery, lie said: "I never could  have believed a superior officer could be  guilty of forgery."  M.   Cavaignac,   formerly   minister   of  war, was the next witness.    Replying to  the court, he  said   he   was   the first cabinet minister to assume responsibility to  Dreyfus.    He   lind  closely   followed   the  inquiry, he  continued, nnd  still desired  to associate   himself  with   the responsibility  of   those   who   in   .IS!)I  protected  the country and the army against   treason:     (Sensation.)     Continuing  the,  witness said that among tin; principal points  upon which he based his convictions wis  the confession to captain Lebnin-li.ena.ud,  in support of which contention he quoted  a passage from an alleged letter of Dreyfus, but which in reality .was part of general Gonze's   report to  the  minister  of  Avar.    In colonel du Paty  de  Clam's report of the alleged confession, M. Cavaignac admitted  the  fallibility  of human  testimony and said that it  ought   to  be  taken into account  when  condemning a  fellow man, but he was convinced of the  guilt   of   Dreyfus  because  his  accusers  were so entirely in agreement  in  their  testimony.     The  witness   also   said   he  found additional proof for the prisoner's  guilt in   the   technical character  of the  bordereau, and that the bordereau  alone  established  the   fact  that   treason ��� had  emanated from the bureau of the general  stall'and from an officer who was able to  secure     all     the    in formation   desired.  According     to     M.     Cavaignac,     oven  iii    his   attempts    to   hide    his   crime,  the accused had allowed words to escape  him which  indisputably  established  his  guilt.      Everything,   according  to    this  witness condemned  Dreyfus, and he  declared in spite of the prisoner's denial, it  was established that he had been   everywhere where it was necessary to procure  tho   information    in   question.      ft   was  established,   tho   witness   asserted,   that  the prisoner had copied plans of the proposed concentration  of tho  army.    Witnesses, he claimed, would   testify in' support of  this  assertion.    Cavaignac next  discussed tho denials of Dreyfus, and" he  ,saidrhis excuses of lapsCrOf,memory 'jvoro  inadinissable. - Dreyfus, lie   claimed   was  aware of the changes in tho'bridgo corps  belonging to the artillery, and also of.the'  concentration.      Why,. then,   tlie   wit- -  n ess     asked,     had1     lie     denied     this  knowledge.      it     was;   impossible    according'.   ��to    M.     Cavaignac   to    credit  that Kstorhu/.y - was a   traitor  even,admitting the   bordereau   was  written by  him.    Msterha/.y, he  insisted, could only  have acted as the intermediary of an accomplice.    The  inquiry  of  the "court of  cassation proved treason was really committed,and he'(Cavaignac) had not based  his conviction of the culpability of Dreyfus   solely  on   the  handwriting  of   the  bordereau,     in    the   secret   dossier,   ho  pointed out, there  were many elements  for conviction,  and  he  proposed to discuss all the allegations made by foreigners with the  view  of exculpating Dreyfus.    For instance there would be official  dementis   (denials)   Avhicli   Avould  leave  room for the truth  to escape    Besides it  Avas quite possible the accused Avas guilty  of  treason   Avithout   having   had direct  relations   Avith   the    agents    of   a   foreign   government,   and   a   certain   am-  bassador    had  attache       had  TUESDAY MORNING, AUGUST 15,  1899.

Colonel  Jonaust then told Dreyfus to rise, and  asked him if he had any remarks to make  upon tho evidence. The prisoner in a low  voice replied :  "I am astonished that the man avIio  produced in the tribunal of the chamber  the Henri forgery can come here and  base his coiiA'ictions of my culpability- on  matters which the court of cassation had  already disposed of."

BENCHERS ARE GETTING BACK AT  $154,070  $3,662,000  THE DISTRICT AND THE TOWNS  Railway Building in Lardo-Duncan Country.

Cavaignac to explain  the discovery of the Henry forgery and  the witness repeated tlie statement lie had  already hia.de on tile subject. He dwelt  at length, do M. Gnigilot's long investigation. Colonel Jonaust then asked:  ''Wliat do you think, of the Henry forgery in relation to the facts now occupying our attention?"  "The Henry forgery, it was alleged, avms  in ordoi; to seeuro a t'OA-isioti of the caso  by the court of cassation, and Was not  even alluded to. This forgery, therefore,  .should remain outside the scope of the  cpiostions submitted to this court martial.    That is hiy opinion."  Replying to another question M.Cavai-  ignac said the statement that Dreyfus  went tb Brussels in tlie middle of 1804,  rested on hearsay. M. Cavaignac introduced during tlie course of his eA>idence,  a .memorandum Avritten in German, asking for various information AAranted by  tno embassy, Avhich appears to have been  unearthed from the archives of the bureau of information of the war office. He  said lie believed it was Avritten by a military attache. M. Demange asked Avhy  M. Cavaignac, avIio Avas so anxious to in-  ���'criminate- Dreyfus, had not produced  this document in the chamber  of docilities. The Avitness ,= replied that he had other means  of reaching the end. Counsel for the  prisoner then questioned M. Cavaignac  in regard to his statement that general  de Boisdeffre Avas absent from Paris .November 6th and general Mereier declared  he Avas there. Tlie Avitness replied that  de Boisdeffre Avas certainly absent on  that date. Colonel Jonaust remarked  tliat this point would be elucidated Avhen  evening and today put in a practice at  the Caledonian grounds.

That the Nelson boys furnish  a good exhibition game of lacrosse is  evidenced by the circumstance that the  .managementof the unitedsocioties picnic  are ciKlea\roring to have the New Westminster-Nelson game played here iustcad  of-at New Westminster. If the people  of Ncav Westminster will consent to the  change the " match Avill be played, in  Victoria.  There is not tho same interest taken in  the Victoria game as marked the game in  Vancouver, Avhere the Nelson boys received close upon three hundred dollars  as their portion of the gate receipts.  Straehan and Galliher have an appointment Avith minister Cotton tomorroAA'  morning, avIiou the matter of the recreation grounds, and the city council's requests Avith respect to the acquisition of  water power facilities of the Kootenay  river Avill be taken up. Henaviok.  Pretty Near the Truth.  The Vancouver NeAvs-Advertiser says  ^that "individually Nelson perhaps has as  fast a lacrosse club as plays the game, but  they AArerc no match for the tAvelve-barrelied, play-together Vancouvcrs. In almost  every Avay but' the right Avay they  showed skill and proficiency on the field,  but in stick-handling, catching and passing they Avere noticeably outclassed."  ���Scene- in~Court.  August 14.���During  Rknxhs, August 14.���During the adjournment of the court in consequence of  the aniiounceinontof the attempt on tho  life of M. Labori, the audience engaged in  violent altercations oA^er the incident. M.  Merciev, editor of the Gaulois, expressed  the opinion that all tlie -newspapers ought  to t'egard themselves as responsible for  tlie outrage, Avb;er0ttpon Madame Savar-  ine loudly protested, saying? "No, *tis  you Avho ou^lit to be held responsible for Avhat happened," The* clamor  finally became; so violent that gendarine.s  were forced to Separate the eoinbataiits-  and take away the sticks of all those'  present, but calm AA'as finally" restored.;  M. Jaures, tho socialist leader, who Avas in;  court, l'oniarkcd that tlie ai'i-ests made in'  Paris had for their sole object to forestall:  a St. Bartliolniow massacre of the;  Dreyfnsards, and tliat the attempt atj  murder of Labori at Rennes was one of:  the scattered acts of the projected massacre.  Dreyfus must undoubtedly- have been;  profoundly moved by the attack on his;  champion, Avho, for all lie knew, might be*  dead or dying, yet the prisoner maintained-  the same imuioA'ability as "heretofore, and  did not give in court the slightest indication of his emotions.

KOOTENAY MINES AND SMELTERS  Eambler-Cariboo Stock1 in Demand.  The reincorporation- of the Rambler-  Cariboo company as a British Columbia  corporation has not yet been completed,  although thecofficers announce that the  neAv company  Avill be formed and everything in readiness to exchange the new  stock for the present shares before the  end of the present month.    Illness in the  family   of   president   McArthur,   Avhich  prevented a  meeting of tlio board of directors in Spokane, has been the cause of  the delay in the reincorporation.    Rambler-Cariboo stock has been in strong demand and has  advanced soArcra3   cents  during  the   past two   Aveeks.      Several  prominent mining men have recently begun buying all the Rambler stock they  could   secure,  AAdiich probably has in a  great measure caused the. present boom.

It Avas complained  that the laundry in question Avas  a nuisance and a menace  to the  health of the  neighborhood.    Tho speakers also spoke '  for J. J.  Campbell.

The alderman  animadverted strongly  on the  Avay this  officer had performed  the duties of sanitary inspector.    E. A. Crease  also  spoke  of   the    luihealthiness   of    washhouses.

E. A. Crease then addressed the council on behalf of the public library and  asked for the ijviOO promised by the council. They needed $200 to tide them over  the year and Avould bo content Avith that  sum. The first year Avas always expensive in such undertakings, and the $1300  already raised aviis insufficient. He  touched on the good A\wk "done by the  library.

Harold Selous wrote asking that steps  be taken to .prevent the drain down tlie  middle of St,-inley street from flooding  his garden with sand and mud during  rainy Aveather. The council avus of the  opinion that something should be done,  and, after discussion, decided, to build a-  plank culvert over the Avest side of Stan-  fey street.  II. D. Beck, ox-comctery caretaker,  wrote asking for alleged .arrears of salary.  The communication was received aud-  "fileTl: TiTe"saine fate~Ijefel Ceorge Ritchie's request for a sidewalk from iiis house  on the corner of MWard and Latimer  streets to Mill street, and Mr. Kvan's  offer of a scavenging tank and Avagon for  $."50.  The city engineer reported that the  proposed temporary sewer on Victoria  street would bo 500 feet long, ending at  Mathesoifs property, and Would cost $2X0  exclusive of rock Avork, of Avhich there  would probably be a good deal.  Alderman Heei-said the city had $1535  of M-wer construction money Avhich Avas  not bespoken, and on his motion the city  engineer was instructed to get out a supplementary report on (he localities most  in need of such facilities.

TEEMS   C-A.SI3C  juggling With the facts which indicate  that; Manitoba in lS'Jf! was the scene of a  conspiracy to cheat and defraud tho  voters of that province? Public opinion  approved of lion. Clifford Sifton's activity and of sir Wilfrid Laurier's determination to sacrifice technicalities and  money in an effort to punish rascality  and protect the sanctity of the ballot  box. it is true that Mr. Sifton's activity  may have savored..more of a partisan desire to get after tlie other crowd than of  a patriotic determination to protect the  sanctity of the ballot box, hut Avhntever  the motive of Mr. Sifton may have been,  his act was good and the inlhience of  that act was good. It av.-is but politics  for the Conservatives to leave themselves  open to the charge of making common  cause with the rascals who rioted in  fraud at the Manitoba polling booths in  l,S!)(i. The minority report may be technically sound and accurate, but why  should the'party which condemns the a.t-  toriioy-genornl of Ontario for his apathy  in West Klgin in ISO!) also condemn the  attorney-general of Manitoba for his activity in. that province in bS'JfJ?

Toronto Globe.  At the end of "tliis long and trying session wo feel like congratulating the prime  minister on tlie health and strength  which- liave been vouchsafed to him in  the discharge of his duties of the most  honorable and most onerous post in the  public life of Canada. JA-om the moment  of his accession to the" leadership of the  Liberal party it was- recogni/.ed that an  ideal head had been found for it. Patient, calm, judicious, courageous, ho combined all the qualities needed in the direction of a party which had powerful  foes to contend with. Pitted against opponents who had been so long in'.power  that every controllable political engine  was in their grasp, the task of dislodging,  them was onie of almost insuperable difficulty. Supported by class interests, a  civil service almost solidly Conservative,  and a senate overwhelmingly- partisan,  the outlook when sir Wilfrid Lanirer took  the chief scat to the left oi! Mr. Speaker  was by no means roseate. The confidence  of his friends in his ability, to discharge  the duties-successfully was greater than  ���his own. It is no secret that he was  most unwilling to take up the work. He  had already given a great deal of timeto  -public'affairs, to the neglect, of his own  profession. The leadership of the opposition simply meant that he must neglect  it altogether, v The  earnest pressure of ;  Is now prepared to issue Drafts and Letters  of Credit on .Skaguay, U. S., Atlin, B. C, and  Dawson City, Yuk.on. District.  the Klondike itself���what .shattered  hopes, what misery, what relentless  toil has it not witnessed ! Now. suppose  that all this gigantic energy and tireless  endeavor had been used in industry hero  at home in Ontario, or the mines of  Ontario and Hritish Oohuiibiii. it docs not  seem unreasonable to believe that the  gross profit would have been far inexcess  of that from the gold fields. The satisfaction would have been greater ; comfort instead of misery and death would  have resulted, and a far larger number of  'people Avould have benefited, But the  hunt for gold seems to have an irresistible  and perpetual attraction for adventurous  spirits who are blinded to the benefits of  solid industry.   Cars Kuniiing to Cascade.  Cascade Record.  At exactly 27 minutes past ten Saturday morning the first locomotive to enter  tiie Boundary country crossed the 1000-  foot long, 135-foot high Kettle river  bridge at Cascade, and is now busy laying the heavy 73-pound Carnegie steel  rails in the Cascade yards. Tho engine  is a powerful one, with eight drivers. It  is numbered '103, and has H. N. Atkinson  at the throttle and James Ii. Baxter as  fireman, two excellent mechanic.0. Last  night the engine was decorated with  bunting, and presented a gay appearance  today,, as it pushed the track-laying  .machine   before   it,  Avhich  was' putting  FULL LINE OF  down the heavy steel at the rate of one  rail (thirty feet) every tAvo minutes. The  track was laid to the other end of the  bridge last Monday, but lists been delayed  for want of the 30-foot bridge stringers  Avhich Avere en route from the Coast. However, superintendent Stewart and chief  engineer Tye set the Avires at work, a  special steamer was sent up Aitoav lakes,  and the result of their unremitting energy is seen in the presence of the snorting  iron horse in the Gateway City today. A  ear of hogs and sheep for P. "Burns & Co.  was brought down to the bridge, but  had to be taken back to the siding at  Sutherland creek. This Avill be brought  in this afternoon Avith seven other cars of  merchandise. Orders have been sent out  to rush all Boundary freight via Robson  to Cascade. It is certain that the C.P.H.  expects to do an immense business at  this point, as three experienced employees  have been sent here to care for it. As  soon as possible a neat and commodious  station will be erected, the carpenters being already on the Avay here.  Traitor Arrested.
