 ��  ���f&tf  ENGLAND'S  POSITION   DEFINED  On the Transvaal Question.  London, August 9.���Replying to various questions in the house of commons  today Mr. Joseph Chamberlain said iio  ollicial confirmation had been received of  the report that the Transvaal had declined to agree to a joint inquiry into the  effect which tlie franchise reforms will  have on the Uitlanders. Several regiments, he added, were about to be dispatched to South Africa for the defense  of Natal, in response to a -request of the  Natal government, and preparations were  being made for all contingencies.  Later, replying to T. I.'. O'Connor. Irish  nationalist member for tin;Scotland division of  Liverpool,   Mr.   Chamberlain   deprecated a. resumption of  (.he debate on  the Transvaal situation, which, he pointed oid', while serious, still remains doubtful.    The  colonial   secretary, added that  lie-sincerely hoped the report; the inquiry  proposal had been  rejected   was"-untrue.  While he regretted the necessity   of  answering Mr. O'Connor, it would be a fatal  mistake to'allow the  hitter's   view that  war was entirely needless  and   that the  government ought to express wHiingness  to wait maybe twenty-five years for a re-  dressal   of   the   grievances   which   they  com plai Lied     of,    to       be      considered,  ho  added,   "Representative opinions  of  even   a  small  minority  in  the  house of  commons, or of anything  hut   the  most  insignificant   minority    in    tho   United  Kingdom   on   the   government's   policy  have been clearly expressed.    We   recognize   the" grievances   of  the  Uitlanders,  and have said these grievances not merely  themselves are serious cause for interposition, but are a source of ''danger  to the  whole of South Africa.    We say our predominance is menaced  by  tho  action of  the  Transvaal   refusing   to  redress   the  grievances  or  give  consideration to requests hitherto put in the most moderate  language  by  the  suzerain   power.    We  say this state of things cannot  be  tolerated.    We  have  put  our hands to  the  plow and won't draw  back.    With "that  statement I propose to rest content."  The additional troops ordered to be in  readiness  for   transportation   to   South  Africa include a battalion   of  the Grenadier guards and throe batteries of  artillery.   ��� -..

LARGEST SMELTER IN CANADA  .  To Be Built Near Greenwood.  Paul Johnson, well   known  as   the  do-  signer of the Hall Mines smelter, is in the  city on a  business visit.    He  will  leave  for Greenwood in a day or two, where as  the  representative of an  English  syndicate with $3,000,000 capital, he   will-superintend tlie  construction of  the largest  smelter iu Canada.    The work will be begun at once and with   ordinary  fortune  Mr. Johnson says that it will be completed by the 1st of November. The company  erecting  the  new   plant-.is   the British  Columbia   Copper    Smelting   Company,  with headquarters  iu London,  England.  The  plant will   be   of the  most modern,  pattern, and will be devoted to the treatment of copper ores  exclusively.    Those  of the Greenwood district are well known  to contain just  about the proper  quantities  of lime and  iron  aud   the  other  .Jinxes' to make them practically, self-fluxing.    Up to the  present time, the Hall  Mines smelter has the largest copper stack  in  the world, capable  of treating about  250 tons of ore per day, and it" was constructed by Mi-. Johnson.   He is iioav going to build  a  still  larger plant, Avhich  will be the second time the largest  stack  in existence.

The three men iii the final made a  loafing race of it,  no one desiring to cut  out the pace.    Peabody w(is in the front,  with  Summersgill  iii   second place and  Caldon trailing.   They kept this position  until the back stretch  of the last round,  when Caldon inoved  up and the three  men eaiiio into   the   stretch practically  abreast.    Then it was that Summersgill  let himsel f loose;    He got a lead of half a  length and succeeded in holding it from  Peabody, avIio had   about the  same the  best of Caldon, who did not finish nearly  as strongly as he did in the preliminaries.

The boundaries of the Goat River Mining division lnwe been changed, and now  that division takes in all .of that part of  West Kootenay to the east of Kootenay  lake lying south of the height of land between Gray's and Crawford's creeks,  thence westerly to Crawford's bay, thence  crossing Kootenay lake to Proctor's  point, thence following the height of  land between Kootenay lake and Salmon  river to the international boundary.  The office of tliedivision is at Kuskonook.  The records of claims that were formerly in the AinsAvorth division but Avhich  are iioav in the Goat River division must  be transferred from Kaslo to Kuskanook.  The necessary affidavits can be made at  Kaslo Avithout expense,- and mining recorder Keen Avill cheerfully render claim  oAvners every assistance in making the  transition easy* as all the records are uoav  at Kuskonook.  Facts.  The City of Nelson commenced work on  the water-Avorks reservoir  with  the full  knowledge and implied consent of Joshua  Davies, avIio Avas then managing director  of the Nelson Land & Improvement Company.    After the Avork Avas  commenced,  Joshua Davies appeared at a meeting of  the city council and stated that the price  of the  five  lots  on Avhich the reservoir  was  being built Avould  be $1500.    The  council deemed  the price  extravagantly  high.    Three, months  afterwards, 'when  the reservoir Avas completed, seeing  that  Mr. Davies Avas unwilling to ask a reasonable figure, the then city solicitor was instructed to take the necessary legal steps  to expropriate the land.    Unless  all the  other laAvyers in the proAriuce conversant  Avith  the  facts  iu  the case are liars, he  buugledthejob. The council appropriated  $750 for the purchase of the lots, aud the  money Avas paid into court to aAvait the  award of arbitrators;    That money  AAras  AvithdraAvn from the custody of the court  by the then  city solicitor  Avithout the  MR. GRUMMOND IS NOT POSTED  money  Bcgarding Wages Paid Miners.  Tiim TitiltUN'B has no quarrel -with 0. S.  Druinmoud, who is a director of the Duncan Mines, Limited, and other milling  companies operating in the vicinity of  Nelson and in the Slocan. He and a number of his co-directors recently paid a  visit to one of the mines in Avhich they  are interested iu tho Slocan, and on his  return to Nelson he Avas interviewed by a  reporter of the organ that is now being  wet-nursed by the mine managers who  for a time are centered at Nelson. According to that interview he said:  SpPnkiiiKOf the oi{,'lit-hoiir law. Mi.'Drumnio id said  ho could not understand the necessity for it. Taking the  Queen Hess as iin - instance.,- he said that tho inc'u there  were perfectly satisfied to work ten hours a day for  SS/ifl and the management was willing to nay it, as ten-  hour phifts would facilitate tho working of the mine, but  S'i.SO for eight hours would pla-e the wages ahead of  anything paid anywhere else in the world. The mine  o\vnr-rs were anxious to get to work, an 1 the men were  no doubt anxious to do likewise. A solution of tho diili-  oulty ought to bo found on grounds fair to both parties  without the interference of people who arc in no way interested.  Mr. Drummond is an estimable gentle-  tleman, and Ave  believe that if .the question of AA'ages Avas left to him, every miue  controlled by his company Avould now be  working full forces; but he is not posted  as to  tlie  rate   of Avages paid in other  mining    countries.      Quartz   .milling'  is  iioav  carried  on  at   Virginia   City,  Nevada,  as  it   has   been  since   1859.     In  fact, many of the  ablest mining engineers and superintendents in the Ayorld re-  ceix'-ed their early .training, in  the mines  on the  great Comstock lode, and-: hundreds   of   miners   scattered  throughout  British Columbia look back to  the days  when they Avorked in one or the other of  the many producing mines  on the Corn-  stock much as college men do to the days  passed in the great  colleges  from Avhich!  they graduated.    No more scientific mining has been done anyAvhere than at Virginia, and hundreds of men are" still em-;  ployed  there.    The   A\'ages  paid in the  mines there are considerably higher than  the  wages  paid  in  the mines in West  is still endeavoring to succeed. Mitchell,  who has been training at Brighton, has  had several interviews Avith Brady and  Jeffries. He says he is anxious to meet  the American in his best form if Brady  can secure a place.

The Coast Cities, o  The Nelson lacrosse team left here yesterday for the   Coast   cities, Avhere they  will play games Avith the  Coast lacrosse  teams,    it is to be hoped that the games  will be free from the scenes that are fast  bringing the game into disrepute throughout Canada.  The following from the Victoria. Colonist is an account of  the game  played at" Vancouver on   Saturdtiy  last  betA\'cen the Vancouver and New  Westminster teams.    If Nelson must fight  its  way  to  glory  on   the  lacrosse field, let:  there be no Aveakness  shown   by either  player or spectator.    Such  trained  Avar-'  riors as "Bill" Gallihcr and "Bob" Reinvick  and "Tom"  Ward  and  "Al"  Trcgillus,  backed, as  they will, be,  by  city clerk  Strachan, Avill, if  need   be, Avipe the face  of the earth Avith all the Coast weaklings  that could be mustered against them.   ,  ���THK  COLONIST'S  ACCOUNT.  A disgraceful scene Avas enacted on the  lacrosse field at Vancouver on Saturday,  over-enthusiastic     supporters���-not    the  players���of the. New Westminster team  being responsible.    AVestminster has certainly the strongest team in the province,-  who have already a "cinch" on the championship, so it is hard to understand Avliy  their supporters "should resort to the tactics that they do.    For Saturday. Vancouver naturally put on  the strongest team  they  could  get together,  and checking  Avas consequently close. In the last game,  the match then   standing 4 to 0 iii favor  of- NeAV   Westminster,   four   inch   Avere  ruled off and a free fight occurred.    Allen  of Vancouver checked T.

It is a very creditable production, .-ind a glance at  it  suffices'to' show  the central   position  of Nelson, which is  denoted by a vat] wheel.    The network of  railroads  and   lines  of steamers   which  radiate   from   Nelson are   clearly  designated, as are the positions of the various  towns in East and .West Kootenay and  Yale.    The pamphlet is neatly gotten up  and contains some  good   cuts, especially  that of the  Hall   Mines   smelter, though  several important Nelson industries  find:  no place in it.  The members of the committee present,  namely J. A. Turner, F. W. Swannell, VA.  E. Hodgins,  G F. Beer  and   F. Fletcher, :  assembled  in  tlie  board of trade rooms,'  and tl le q uestion of  tlie  f u nds  in  hand  Avas discussed.    It  was  estimated  that ft;  there was money in hand to the: amount  S  of $805, and  that expenses  Avould  pro-Vj  bably total iip  to  Jj>4��S.    The  secretary ^  Avas instructed to present a  detailed ac-ftl  count of the liabilities and assets  to the J/  regular meeting of the  board  of trade- ;|  next Tuesday.

ARIZONA'S   PETRIFIED   FOREST.
One of the most interesting and impressive of natural Avonders is the. great
.petrified forest of Arizona, which covers
nearly 100 square-miles. The gcrvqni-
ment explorers have christened it Chalcedony Park.
The surface of the ground for miles and
miles around is covered with gigantic
logs throe or four foot in diameter, petrified to the core. Many of them are
translucent. Some are almost transparent. All present the most beautiful
shades of blue, yellow, pink, purple, red
and gray. Some tire like gigantic
.amethysts, some resemble the smoky
■■topaz,- and some are as pure and as white,
as alabaster. At places the chips of agate
for the trunks that have crumbled, lie a
foot deep upon the ground, and it is easy
to obtain cross sections of trees showing
every,vein and even bark.
A bird's-eye vioav of the petrified forest
on a sunny day suggests a gigantic
kaleidoscope. The surface of the earth
resembles an infinite variety of rainbows.
The geologists say this great plain, iioav
5000 feet above the sett, Avas once covered
by a forest, which Avas submerged for
ages in water strongly charged with minerals, until the fibres of thetrees were
thoroughly soaked and transformed into
eternal stone. Many of the trunks are
still  packed   in  a deposit of  fine  clay,

No rims arc allowed. The children have
to provide the coins out of their own
pocket money. The rule applies to their
father and me as well as to them. The
sum goes to buy now table linen. The
lirsfc year I tried this plan we had money
enough for three handsome tablecloths,
but .since then there, has been less and
less. This is the fourth year, and, although none of my four boys has as yet
readied his fifteenth birthday, and they
are by no means unusually deft in their
management of knives, forks and spoons,
they have learned to serve themsehrcs
and others so avoII that I am inclined to
think their contribution to the 'table
cloth fund' -will be very slight.
HARRISON'S   MURDER   CASE.
The scars are almost healed.; The
small boys of the civil war period .are
growing gray, and Hoosiers Avho used to
be afraid to go into Kentucky and Ken-
tuckians avIio dared not cross into Indiana now "jug" for catfish from tho
same ski IT-and swap Avar lies and plug
tobacco in perfect amity. The Avar must
be over.
Ben Harrison's appearance in one of
the greatest lawsuits in the .world's history—the boundary dispute between
Venezuela and Great Britain—is not his
first cause celebre by any -means. He
may recall one in which he participated
Avhen he was twenty-five years younger
than he is uoav, Avith Dan Voorhees as opposing counsel. He may remember it because it Avas one of the few murder cases
Voorhees ever lost. The state of Indiana,
had found fault Avith one Bill Smith—
that Avas not his name, but 'tAvill serve—
because Bill had killed a farmer. It was
a most unprovoked murder, for Bill aud a
party of roystering companions had:
stoned the farmer's house, and when he
appeared Avithout the moat to make;
physical protest they set upon him most

A PECULIAR WATER  SYSTEM.
The peculiar system by Avhich the city
of Amsterdam obtains  its water  supply
from  the sand   dunes bordering the sea
is probably not  exceeded in scientific interest by any other  method in any part
of the globe.    These dunes are composed
of sand  blown  up   from  the   seashore,
their  basis   also consisting of sand, although this is  mixed with   peat at some
points, and at the sea level layers of compressed peat arc frequently found.    It is
noticeable, too, that these peat layers are
never found on  the sides  of the dunes
next the sea.    The rainfall in the dunes
percolates  through the sand  and   flows
landward and  seaward, so  that the surface is a cone whose apex  is the summit
of the dune, Avhich,  sloping   both   ways,
forms  a   continuous   Avatershed.     Now,
not only  is the  dune water  fresh above
sea  level, but it  is perfectly  fresh  to a
depth of  some sixty-six  feet  beloAV   sea
level.    This 'fresh Avater being found at
such  depth under the dunes,  while the
water tit  the same depth in the immediate  neighborhood is salt,  goes to  prove
that either the subsoil  must be based on
fresh  water—the  hydraulic  pressure of
the dune water preventing sea impregnation—or that  the water, originally salt,
has become freshened by this'dune water
pressure. . 0

Did Not Get What They Expected.  An amusing story is told of a large ball  given recently in London. The host was  one of the new South African millionaires, and was anxious to fill his new  Park Lane residence with the aristocracy  of Kngland and was willing to pay for  the pleasure, lie was fortunate enough  to receive the assistance of a, titled woman of fashion, avIio introduced, as they  arrived, the many aristocratic people to  whom she had sent invitations and to  whom the faces of the host and hostess  were entirely unfamiliar. It had been  adroitly rumored that the most magnificent favors Avould be given away in the  cotillion. Preliminary gossip placed the  value of every guest's possible acquisitions during the evening at live hundred  dollars. So the (lower of London society  felt that it should turn out to honor a  host avIio showed such a disposition to do  the right thing. After an entertainment  as lavish as it could be made by the expenditure of money, the favors proved to  be less valuable, than they were expected  to be, although far more magnificent  than such trifles are customarily. It is  said that the shock of this discoArery so  upset the guests that they made no effort  to conceal their vexation at not getting  what they expected.  The Metal Markets.

CURRENT RATK OK INTEREST PAID  ARIZONA'S   PETRIFIED   FOREST.  One of the most interesting and ������-impressive of luttural wonders is the great  petrified forest of Arizona, which covers  nearly 100 square miles. The government explorers have christened it Chalcedony Parle.  The surface of the ground for miles aiid  miles around is covered with gigantic  logs three or four feet in diameter, petrified to the core. Many of them are  translucent. Some are almost transparent. All present the most beautiful  shades of blue, yellow, pink, purple, red  and gray. Some are like gigantic  ���amethysts, some resemble the smoky  topaz, and some are as pure and as white  as alabaster. At places the chips of agate  for tho trunks that have crumbled, lie a  foot deep upon the ground, and it is easy  to obtain cross sections of trees showing  every vein and even bark.  A bird's-eye view of the petrified forest  on a sunny day suggests a gigantic  kaleidoscope. The surface of the earth  resembles an infinite variety of rainbows.  The geologists say this great plain, now  5000 feet above the sea, was once covered  by a forest, which Ava'so submerged for  ages in water strongly charged with minerals, until the fibres of the'trees were  thoroughly soaked and transformed into  eternal stone. Many of the trunks are  sti 1J."���'���packed-,':'.in  a^ deposit jof  fine 'clay.  Is now prepared to issue Drafts and Letters  of Credit on Sl^aguay, U. S., Atlin, B. C, and  Dawson City, Yuk.on, District.  No rims are allowed. The children have  to provide the coins out of their own  pocket money. The rule applies to their  father and me as well as to them. The  sum goes to buy new table linen. The  first year I tried this plan we had money  enough for three handsome tablecloths,  but since then there lias been less and  less. Tliis is the fourth year, and, although none of my four boys has as yet  readied his fifteenth birthday, and they  are liy no means unusually deft in their  management of knives, forks and spoons,  they .have learned to serve themselves  and others so well that .1 am inclined to  think their contribution to the 'table  cloth fund' will be very slight.

Many   crystals   were   used   for  jewelry and ornaments also;  Money to Hide Stains.  Two mothers of large families were  discussing domestic matters one day, ant!  the younger of the two spoke with a sigh  of tlie way in which, Jier tablecloths were'  spotted througii the daily mishaps of her  two boys- "Perhaps you'd like to know  how 1 have helped niy boys to bo careful  at the table," said the older woman, "ft  is the plan oh which my niother brought  us iipi and I've never found a bettor.  The rule in our family," she proceeded,  when urged by her friend to explain her  method, "is this : Any one who makes a  spot on tlie tablecloth must cover it with  a piece of money, and the piece must be  large  enough to hide the  stain entirely.  The scars are almost healed. The  small boys of the civil war period are  growing gray, and Hoosiers who used to  be afraid to go into Kentucky and Ken-  tuckians who dared not cross into Indiana now "jug" for catfish from the  same skiff and swap Avar lies and plug  tobacco in perfect amity. The war must  be over.  Ben Harrison's appearance in one of  the greatest lawsuits in the world's history���the boundary dispute between  Venezuela and Great Britain���is not his  first cause celebre by any means. He  may recall one iu which he participated  when he was twenty-five years younger  than he is now, with Dan Voorhees as opposing counsel. He may remember it because it was one of the few murder cases  Voorhees ever hist. The state of Indiana  had found fault with one Bill Smith���  that was not his name, but 'twill serve���  because Bill had killed a farmer. It was  a most unprovoked murder, for Bill and a  party of roystering companions had;  stoned the farmer's house, and when he  appeared  without   tho   moat   to   make,  The peculiar system by which the city  of'Amsterdam obtains  its water  supply  from   the sand  dunes bordering the sea  is probably not  exceeded in scientific interest by  any other  method in any part  of the globe.    These dunes are composed  of sand   blown   up   from   tho   seashore,  their  basis   also  consisting of sand, although this is  mixed with   peat at some  points, and at the sea level layers of compressed peat are frequently found.    It is  noticeable, too, that these peat layers are  never   found on   the sides  of the dunes  next the  sea.    Tho rainfall in tho dunes  percolates  through the sand  and   flows  landward ami  seaward, so  that the surface is a cone whose apex  is the summit  of the dune, which,  sloping   both   ways,  forms  a   continuous   watershed.     Now,  not only  is the  dune water  fresh .above  sea  level, but it  is  perfectly  fresh  to a  depth of  some sixty-six  feet below  sea  level. .'This   fresh water being found at  such  depth under the dunes,  while the  water at  the same depth  in the immediate  neighborhood is salt,  goes to  prove  that cither the subsoil  must be based on  fresh  water���the  hydraulic pressure of  the dune water preventing sea impregnation���or that  the water, originally salt,  has become freshened by this dune water  pressure.
