Of a Coward.
Risnnrs, August 10.—One of the chief
witnesses before the court today was
general Roget. In the course of liis evidence lie said: "M. Casimir-Perier deposed before the court of cassation that
an ambassador called to demand an official denial of the statement that important documents were, found at his embassy. The ambassador, however, knew
ib was a fact, but, admitting that he did
not know it, then; is nothing surprising
in tlie Occurrence in view of the facility
with which attache "A" (1 do not mention his name because the minister lias
forbidden it) allowed compromising hitters to lie around. I read one such letter which was very compromising to a
person whoso name 1 cannot mention.
Why, therefore, should not the bordereau
go astray?"
Tho general insisted  upon tho truth of
the statement that military attaches "A"
and "B," under -which letters he referred
to colonel Se.hwathenbass of the German
embassy at Paris and major Panr/ardi of
tho Italian  embassy,   who  were  at the
French capital  at   the  time,   worked together almost   daily,  and   ho  quoted  a
passage from a letter exchanged between
them as follows:   "M. Hanotaux, the sly
' follow, is glad that the embassy is denying.    The embassy must deny."    In the
same document was the name of Dreyfus.
The name of Estcrha/.y, he added, was
not found in any of the documents, none
of which conld  be  ascribed   to him with
the exception   of   the   petit bleu, which
colonel   Picquart  discovered   in such an
extraordinary .manner.   The witness said
he then   felt  great  uneasiness in regard
to the  document  containing   the words
"cette canaille dn].)—7—."•   A certain military attache, said  tlie  general later 011
in     his     testimony,    informed    colonel
Sandherr    that   there    was    some    one
who imitated his handwriting perfectly.
The name Dubois, the witness  said  further, was found in the correspondence of
the  military attaches.      "Dubois,"   the
general  explained, was the  unfortunate
who futilely tried to sell the secret of the
smokeless 'powder  used  in   the  French
army.     "If,"   said   general   Roget, "No
-other person can be found to  whom  the
initial D. can apply, to whom does it then
"■'As he made these remarks the judges
faced about and looked fixedly at the
prisoner, who, however, merely shrugged
Jiis shoulders.
"No," continued the  general, "the  ex

hours Avithout adding any new facts, only"
reiterating   in   tlie  most  forcible  terms
what has been dandled about in the anti-
Drey fusard press for tho year past.    The
most interesting   part  of  his   testimony
was his attack on colonel Picquart, which
will undoubtedly lead  to   the con frontal
of  the  two  men.     Me  treated Dreyfus
without inerey,both in wordsand attitude.
It seemed at times as though he would
provoke the prisoner  into striking him.
The general's   manner  was 'most picturesque.    In his outburst at tlie end of his
testimony he uttered the last ruthless attack  with   the   air   of  ono.  delivering a
pleasant Sunday school  address, leaning
over tho front of the witness rail, sipping
from a glass of  water with his lips, and
.mopping his brow with perfect self satisfaction, but again   and: again  he would
half turn  in   his   chair  and, pointing his
finger  at   Dreyfus,   would   repeat  some
cruel    accusation,    at    the    same    time
fixing  his    eyes    on    Dreyfus.    He   inclined   forward,    like   a   cobra   waiting
tlie moment to strike.   Dreyfus, however,
was not a hypnotized rabbit, and steadily
returned his gaze, sometimes throwing a
glance at the   president  of the court as
though appealing for permission to reply;'"
Once Avhen general   Roget had flung one
of these darts he stopped and deliberately
paused.    One could  see  the fire in Dreyfus'eyes', and in   his  tightly closed jaws
could divine the struggle that Avas going
on Avithin him.   The captain of gendarmes
sat   beside   Dreyfus   aiid-'watched him
closely.    The seconds  passed  like hours
and  the   spectators   held   their, breath.
General Roget seemed" to prolong the silence in order to  make a deeper impression. It Avas a perilous moment, but Dreyfus Avon the battle "over his passions, and
Avhen Roget's voice  was  at length-heard
again  everyoim  kneAv   that  the  danger
Avas passed.
Rbnnes, August Hi.—The second trial
by court ma.rtial of Dreyfus continued

The half-yearly general meeting of the
shareholders of the Bank of British Columbia has been held.    In addressing the
meeting  the  chairman said that  trade,
Avhethcr as regards California, Oregon or
British Columbia,was favorable, bearing
evidence to increased activity and to developments  of   enterprise;   but  on  the
other hand avo have to report that with
improving prospects come also  increased
competition,' and consequent  thereupon
increased difficulty of obtaining remuneration for the bank  on   the old scale, or.
on a scale  Avhich,  in  the opinion of the
directors, is commensurate. Avith  the accommodation   they  are  called: upon   to
afford.    This Avill lie readily  understood
when     I     inform     you    that,    Avhore-
as  a few   years   ago  there   Avere   only
two banks,  there   are   iioav  more  than
eight banks operating in ■'thp province of
British Columbia,  in   addition  to other
financial institutions Avho advance money
oil loan.    The problems which* Ave  have
to work out are,  to combine enterprise
with caution and to meet the gro\ving requirements'of British Columbia with ceo-,
noniy in expenditure. The problems, how-'
ever; are  not  left solely  to Ourselves to'
solve; they constitute  the difficulties of-
kindred institutions;  but  Ave .trust 'that;'
the position Avhich Ave hold in British Co-;
lumbia,   and   the   loyal   connection   by"
which we are  supported  and  Avhich we"
strive to cultivate,.will enable us to sIioav
at the end of the year a result not unsatisfactory  to   the   shareholders.;  British
Columbia, the  chief seat of our operations, is a  country  of large possibilities,
but,    OAviug   to    its    small   population,
of    comparatively   sIoav     development.
It   is    gifted    by    nature    Avith   quail-
ties -which"  ■'warrant    belief    that   at
some  future time it  Avill rival the  old
country in  population,  wealth and  industry, but these developments will  not
be in the time of any of those present in::
this room today.    We must becontent to

Cannot Be Held as a Mineral Claim.
Mr. justice Drake's decision in the
Charles Darts a^s. St. Kevorno Mining
Company case is uoav the law of British
Columbia, as the time for taking an appeal has expired. The point is one of
great importance to the locators of mineral claims. By the decision, a mineral
ciaim must be one piece of ground, and
not tAvo or more fractional pieces.       ->.
The point was first raised in the fall of
1805-by. a AveM-known mineral land, surveyor of Nelson, avIio, in writing to the
lands and works department, held that in
running lines as boundaries of mineral
claims it was... necessary to'stop on arriving at the boundary of another survey,
or the boundary of another, claim
though unsuiwcycd. Thepoint AA'as submitted by the survey-general to thp-attorney-general for an opinion, and that
official, through'deputy'Arthur G. Smith,
wrote that "a locator under the Mineral
Act is entitled to all available land that
twould fall within the limits' of ..his. claim,,
and I think the survey should be conducted, in the first instance, irrespective
of any prior locations, and- these should
afterwards be shown, on tho plan aiid deducted from the surface to Avhich tlie-
locator is entitled."

;Mr. justice Drake for making the decision:

documents tending to compromise Dreyfus. As the geuci'ivl AS'aS evidently greatly fatigued* colonel Jonaust suggested
thStt lie continue his testimony tomorrow.
The colonel then addressed the prisoner,
asking him if lie had anything to say in
'reply to general Rogeb. Dreyfus replied:
" No, my colonel. It is frightful that
day after day for hours, I should thus
have my heart, soul and my very entrails
torn without being permitted to reply.
It is a terrible: torture to impose upon an
innocent and loyal soldier. It is a frightful thing, frightful, frightful."
The outburst caused a great sensation.
The audience Avas profoundly stirred and
begau to applaud but the applause Avas
quickly suppressed. Colonel Jonaust
pointed out to Dreyfus that he had been
giA^en an opportunity to speak at the end
of every deposition and the court Avould
continue to do so. The court then adjourned.
As the prisoner passed out in front of
the seats assigned to tlie representatives
of the press his face Avas pale but animated. He seemed to be in a state of
great nervous excitement and in a furious
temper.   General Roget spoke for three

Ayith M. Jlatliioil l>reyl'us tins afternoon
respecting: tho decision of the Court
martial, the gravity of Avhich is
fully recPgni/.ed. Bl. Deniange is
much upset by the loss of
the assistance of liis colleague, M. Labori,
particularly as the latter had prepared a
special set of questions for general Roget,
aiid the absence of this, together with,
the fact that Labori's secretary Avas cpm-
pelled to be aAvay, places M. Demange at
a great disadvantage. Counsel for the
defense, howeArer, will take general Roget
in hand the first thing tomorrow. The
great preoccupation of the Dreyfus family and M. Demange, hoAvever, Avas the
result of the court's decision to adjourn
when applied for this morning. This is
considered of grave portent, and is taken
to mean an indication that the members
of the court-martial have already made
up their minds unfavorably  to  Dreyfus.

gave ns a game  on   Saturday  that  Avas
worth  going : miles to  see.    Your uncle
Reuben, from Stoveston, Avas there, and
so Avas Alex. Turnbnll of NeAV  Westminster,    The latter, who is looked   upon  as
.a-master.of all the Aviles and mysteries of
lacrosse, Avas exuberant in his praises of
the'playing of the ambitious Nelsonites.
They—the    visitors—expected    to   AA'in.
They  knew  they  had  speed, endurance
and  an  experience  of the game  dating
back    over    many    summers,    and,   in
addition,    they    had    the   avoirdupois.
Their team in Aveight totals 1920 ijp'uiids,-
equal to 100   pounds   to   the  man,  and

them they one and all  proved, time  and

Victoria, August 10.—Ncav Westminster    advices-   confirm    tho    statement
wired-yesterday that  R. L. Reid Avill oppose Henderson, and adds that he scarcely has a fighting  chance.    The  evidence
of the political unrest prevailing isshoAvu
by  the   fact  that tho  NeAvs-Advertiser
thinks that it is necessary to combat the
suggestion that  Peters  may  enter  pro-
viucial   politics.    Cotton's   paper   urges
that while  Peters has  been  premier  of.
Prince Edwards Island, affairs there are;
much  easier to   manage than those   of
British Columbia, and also that Peters is
too new to this  province  to be  familiar
with its requirements.    This,  no doubt,
is another  slap at  Martin, Avho  arrived
at   about   the   same    time   as   Pofccis.

Vancouver and' Nelson p]ayed lacrosse
on Saturday afternoon, and those of us
who were fortunate enough to see the
match have not stopped talking about it
yet. We have gradually drifted into the
most reprehensible habit, here on the
Coast, of imagining that all the players of
the game in the province are scattered
around amongst the three cities, Van-:
couver, Victoria and Westminster, and
that the "great interior" was incapable
of turning put anything in the lacrosse
lino, at  least, that  could  do more  than
Free Milling' Ore in Atlin District.
Nevvs lias reached Vjetorlu of a wonder*
fully rich find of free milling pre in feho
Atlin district. The find was made by 0.
A. Anderson, of North field, who spent
several years1 pn Toxada island prospecting, ainl J. Pearson of Yakima,, tVaHliing-
ton. The strike Avas made in what is locally known as tlio Big iloi-u district.
Assays of tlie rock rim from $2000 to
nearly $i;3,Q0Q in gold to the ton. Samples .of tho ore wore sent to Atlin to be
assaj'ed. Mi-. Pinder, of the Bank of
British North America, avIio did. tlie
work,' certified as follows: No, 101,
$12,052 gold; No. 102, $12,300 gold; No.
102, $222 silver; No. 168, $2904 gold.
The ore, it is said, was taken indiscriminately from different portions of the
ledge. Two pounds of the rock was
roasted, powdered and Washed in a prospecting pan. It yielded ■$(). Tlio gold is
of a leafy nature, running through the
rock in layers. A stringer of molybed-
ntun is running in the lode.

The perplexity could notarise if the policeman Avould  remain true to his employers and not accept a bribe, but the Ne\Ar York policeman never thinks of that. The Mazct investigating committee haAro discovered  that chief Dcvory has overlooked the  presence of gambling and opium .dens  and thus added something to his salary.  Society has come to expect nothing bettor from New York police officers, and  the only remedy open to society is to  make applicants for positions on the Now  York police force "pass the long green"  and pay a commission from their salary  or be removed from oil ice. The corruption cannot be removed; it cannot be condoned.  Guerin Still Holds Out.  Pa his, August 10.���M.

An event of more tlian passing interest  to Monti-ealoi's is the early home coming  of Major Gironard, the dashing young  Canadian..oiiieor, whose name is almost as  Avell known throughout.' tho British empire today as that of lord Kitchener, of.  Khartoum, says tlio Montreal Star.  Girouard's achievements in the recent  Soudan campaign must be considered its  being only second in importance to those  of the sirdar, for Avhile tho latter put to  flight the armies of the khalifa, the for-,  mer to a greater extent than most people  imagine made it possible for hiiii to do so.  For it was to him that general Kitchener  entrusted the task of engineering the  construction of the Wady Haifa railway,  aline that crosses the Nubian desert and  saves over six hundred miles of transportation around the great bend of the  Nile.  Major Gironard,  as  has  already been  stated, is a Canadian  by  birth,  having  been born in Montreal on  January' 2(ith,  1807.    He is the son  of  Mr.  justice  Gironard, of the supreme  court  of  Canada,  and his birth  is  contemporaneous  Avith  that of tho Dominion.    After completing  his studios at the elementary schools at  Montreal, ho attended, successively,  the  ...commercial academy of Three Hi vers, and  the Royal military college in Kingston.  He entered the latter in 1SS2.    On -finishing his course in 1SS0, lie triod.to obtain a  commission  in tho lloyal engineers, but,  failed. He also  made tin unsuccessful attempt to outer the lloyal artillery. In this  he was strongly opposed by his - father,  who  wished him   to follow  the  profession  of tin  engineer,   for  Avhicli he   had  boon educated,   -failing to obtain a com-  . mission- in   her majesty's  service he  entered'tlie service of the Canadian   Pacific  railway, and was employed for a  period  of/fifteen mouths on the survey and  construction   stall's.    At   the   end  of  that  time he gained his commission uas a  sublieutenant in the Royal-engineers.    He-  Avent to Chatham,- England; whore lie remained for two years extending and perfecting his engineering studies, and was  subsequently appointed   superintendent  of railway traffic at the Woolwich arsenal. *He filled this position for a period of  five years, during Avhich .time ho  gained  a practical knowledge of raihvay working.    He was first brought prominently  before  the  British  military authorities  through the agency of a paper which he  wrote in  1801, aud in which  he outlined  the engineering works necessary foi; the  :pi?ateetioi.i of the coast Of lJUlglaiid.    He  was then in lu:4 24th year. ���jriiis  paper  =W{ts=ai'terA\7trds=the=Snpject=0f^aii=artic]e=  in thei%rtnightry Review from the pen  of colonel   Boxall.    In   tlie   autumn   of  1,805, he visited Oanattti.   Tlie stay was a  short one, however, and in the winter of  iSOfij lie joined tile  c&pecfitioiiai-y force  uhder general Ivifcelieuer fot- the reeOn-  qsiest of the Soudan, and wiis placed iu  eoiniiijtnd   of  the   railway   ednsti'tietion  biitalioiij wjtiv the rank of "biiiibaRlli/' Or  iiiajor in the Egyptian artlly.  He was present at cvtwy engagement  in thjit iilemotfaljle eampaigii, which only  ended with tlie iiiagnificeiit victory at  Oindlirinan and tlio evacniltioii of Khar-  toiun, the scene of Gordon's tragic death.  Jilajor Girouartrs chief Avork iii the  Soudan caiiipaign was, as litis already  been stated, :the superintending of the  construction Of the Wady Hal fit -railway.,  In this undertaking he .had to face almost insurniountabie difficulties, but his  Canadian pluck and determination impelled him forward until at last the road  was an accomplished *act- The route of  the road was from Wady Haifa-, at the  second cataract, to Harrar and Akasheh,  near the fifth cataract, a total distance of  250 miles. It was rendered necessary in  Order to afford speedy transportation for  tlie Euglishiiind. Egyptian forces to the  higher reaches of the Nile, Avhence they  could bo conveyed in river steamers to  Omdurman and Khartoum: The task of  placing and building the necessary machinery ond Avorkshops at Wady Haifa  and the organization of a construction  staff of native Soudanese, was not an  easy one. Then there Avere the desert  storms and the heavy rains to combat.  Time and time again the line Avas buried  under sand or swept away iu the mullahs  or water courses by the torrents of water.  Iu such cases the buried rails 'were dug up  and relaid, the tracks carried away Avere  recovered and again put in place, and at  of Credit on Sk,aguay, (J. S.  Dawson City, Yul^on District.  Atlin., B. C, and  last,  hi June,   1800,  the  road   was completed as f.'i!' as Akasheh.    Then  ensued  the memorable   engagements at Tirkeli  and Dnngola, in both of which the expeditionary  force, Avith  general Kitchener  at its  head, routed   the dervishes   and  paved.tho way. for the further construction of the road and the advance of the  English   and   Egyptian   forces   towards  Omdurman and  Khartoum.-   During the  next few months the construction of the  railway  was   pushed forward   with   all  possible despatch.    In: a very short time  Kormoh,    which   lies,  beyond   the   first  series of cataracts, was reached.    Thence  the road was continued round the southern  frontier of   Dongola to  Moraur,   at  which point the work AA'as stopped until  the following year.    The reason for this  postponement avjis that the fourth cataract, Avhich lay between 'Moraur and Abu  Hamod, constituted a very dangerous and  difficult.-obstacle  to   the forwarding  of  supplies  by the  river and to transport  supplies "for OAron a small force by camels  or other animals AA'as  an "expcusi\re and  stupendous    undertaking.      The   sirdar,  therefore, decided to construct a railway  across  tho -Nubian'  desert   from  Wady  Haifa to Abu Hamod, audit was to this  road that 'major Gironard devoted most  of his attention. . He got his construction,  battalion to work on the lino in 1807, .and  thereafter the undertaking progressed at  the rate   of about  two miles. per   day.  Concerning  the construction   of this lino  the correspondent of the London Times  Avrites as folIoAvs:  "Great as were his achievements in  ���railway construction, movement of materials and supplies, its avoII as of men  over long lines of communication in 180(5,  he (general Kitchener) has surpassed  ��� them. in'.'.l.S07-8. , Iii no-campaign,'in any  country litis the work of.a magnitude to  compare Avith his ucav line from Wady  Haifa across the desert to Berber and the  Atbara ever been attempted. The inception of such it line was more than bold  ������it Avas daring, while the-iexecution of  tho Avorkjias been' signalized by the display of the highest skill in overcoming  difficulties. The solution' of the transport difficulty meant the certain and  relatively easy roeonquest'of the Soudan.-  Sir Herbert Kitchener addressed himself  Avith courage to theta.sk. He struck direct from Wady Haifa across the desert  to Abu IJamed, and so gained at a bound  the upper reaches of the Nile."  THE   BOYCOTT.  All real friends of the cause of humanity and sympathizers with the oppressed  will not fail to extend their best Avishes  and perhaps substantial aid to labor  struggling under tho heel of tyranny, but  those avIio have the best interests of  trades unionism at heart Avill regret the  system of .terrorism adopted by the  strikers of London and Cleveland. Tt is  nil very avoII for Avage-earners to endeavor to improve their lot by refusing  tOAVOrk until certain concessions arc made  by capitalists, but it is a mistake to resort to mob' law and to boycotting, em^  broiling the whole coniiniuiity in the dispute. The power to lay all classes of  eitizeiisninderaHuoyeott^  thei'n into obedience shows; the great  strides which trades unionism lias imule  diTring this century, but when this power  is used despotically, the pendulum will  begin to swing back to the other extreme.  It is indeed lamentable that the  cause of honest labor must suffer  from the domination of half-brainexl,  tyi'ithts iii the ranks. There may be dire  oppression on the pitt'fc of tile ina,s,tor,,but  this: is no excuse fol* iingoveruable rage  on the part of the servant, when, he finds  himself suddenly possessed of power.  Trades Unions, so soon tis they got tlie  whip hand, sometimes overstep the mark,  and in their, blind stubbornness inflict irreparable injury on their own order. A  number of years ago shipbuilding flourished oil tlie Thames, but the union element led to such unbearable insolence  and dictatorship' oil the part of the workmen that capital Avas handicapped and  the laborers soon found themselves turned .adrift, for'tlie industry had. been  established on the Clyde, -where- trades  unions as yet were unknown. But  history repeats itself. Today the  Clyde shipwrights have become saucy,  ugly and imperious,,and the consequence  is that capital is subjected to great losses,  and is becoming more and more unable  to compete with United States and   Gcr-  Telephone 93  FOR  ICE  CREAM  ANB  FRESH  FRUIT OF ANY KIND.

Some day the bull-  headed workmen Avill wake up to find  Germany monopolizing the business and  themselves loft destitute. Of course, tho  same conditions do not apply to London  and CleAreland, but the same churlish,  stubborn spirit is manifested among the  strikers, and this -will inevitably bring  disaster on themselves. Conciliation is  tho only true Avatchword both in the  camp of labor and of capital. Emancipation is to be secured not by violence  nor by ungovernable excess, but by moderation and peaceful methods.  The Virtue of Care.  Toronto Tolcgram.  Boys need not be taught to go around  trembling and fearful that the next  breath may be their last, but instruction  in the habit of carefulness should be a  part of every boy's education. Perhaps  the public schools cannot be expected to  educate pupils in the art of taking care  of their OAvn valuable lives. Yet it is  true that the educational authorities  might do Avorse than give tho virtue of  carefulness a place on the public school  programme. A good half and more of  the tragedies which darken the brightness of these summer days are due to  carelessness.

The institution of property has been  piwcd by experience asAvell as shown by  reason to be vital to industry and  civilization.    Communistic experiments have  had no lasting success.    The  whole  primeval  history  of man  may, in fact, be  stiid to haAre been an experiment in  common  ownership, which failed and  gave  place to1 bhe system of private property,  though traces of it still remain iu Russia,  Afghanistan  and    Hindostan.     Yet  instances of the unequal and unjust distribution     of      property      often     occur,  Avhieh     incline      us      to     sympathize  with    . communistic    aspirations.     The  other   day    wo    had    a    glowing    account of a party   of   youthful', heirs of  American    multi-millionaires   who,   had  just left  college  setting out on  a tour  round the Avorld Avith a corps of attendants and a fabulous amount of baggage.  These boys had never done, nor will the3r  ever do, a stroke of work  with, hand or'  brain; probably they will  never  do society any sort of good.    It, is  too  likely  that they may do  society not'a little  harm.    Yet the product of countless laborers is devoted to their pleasures ; they  are Avorshipped lords of the community,  revelling in  luxury and splendor, while  those by whose labor their expenditure is  supported are struggling, Avith their families, for bare bread. c,���'...
