 FIVE ASSASSINATIONS IN TEXAS
In One Day.
Dallas, Texas, August 21,—Police officers Albert P. Rawlins and Charles A.
Daniels fought a duel with 15-ealibre revolvers at 'I o'clock this morning. Rawlins was shot through the heart and also
through the body from the right side,
and died in five minutes. Daniels was
shot in the upper part ot* the stomach,
the hall coming out at the back close
to the spine. He died in about an
hour. Although twelve shots were lircd
the three mentioned were all that took
o fleet;.
The duel took place at Main and Poy-
dras streets. Wildly Hied bullets shattered windows in the American National
Hank and the wholesale store of the
Knepley .Jewelry .Company, between
which the men fought.
.Rawlins had been on the police force
eleven years today. Daniels was formerly on tlie regular force, but Avas discharged about three years ago. Since
then he has been it special policeman, doing watchman's duty at tlie American
National 'Rank. He had frequently expressed the opinion that the influence of
Jiawlins and his friends was behind his
being discharged. .11 is statements reached
the., .ears of Bawlins, and ill-feeling resulted, but no one considered it of a serious character.
Rawlins was off duty last night and got
. under the influence of liquor. lie and a
haekdriver were standing at Main and
l^oydras streets. He saw Daniels on the
sidewalk opposite him, and applied an offensive term to him. Daniels walked over
to where Rawlins stood and asked:
"What was that you.'said?" Ilawlins
repeated his languagcand both men drew
their pistols and began shooting.
Rawlins was a natvc of Bloonrington,
Illinois, and was thirty-seven years old.
J le was u nmarried.' Daniels was a. native
of this county. He was thirty-five years
old, and leaves a widow, but no children.
At S o'clock tonight three more assassinations wore reported, making a
total of five iu Dal las county today. At
Sinioiisville, ten utiles from the city, tlie
wife of William Dougherty was mortally
wounded and William Lineonie instantly
killed with buckshot by Jitmes and John
Robinson. The latter ' have fled to the
timber bottoms of Cedar creek, but was
pursued by a; sheriff's posse from the
city. William Work, oho of the oldest
and best known business men of the city,
was ass'aul ted bya negro-named Sol Smith,
, who fractured his skull in two ; places.

MANY LINES OF UNINTERESTING
Evidence Given Yesterday.
Rhnnes, August 21.—There was a large
attendance at the Lycee at tho opening
of court at 0:30 this morning, in view of
the possible reappearance of Maitrc Labori, but though progressing satisfactorily, his physicians deemed it best for him
to remain quiet. The court settled down
quickly to business, and by nine o'clock
live witnesses had appeared at the bar.
If this rate continues, as calculated, the
court will bo through with ninety-odd
witnesses bythe beginning of September,
and it is considered probable that the
verdict will be delivered by September
7th.
Colonel Picquart, after protesting
against the manner in which his correspondence was tampered with, expressed
surprise that the question of the employment of secret service money should be
constantly mixed tip with the Dreyfus
case, with which, he claimed, it had
nothing whatever to do. He also denied
he had given M. Lenoist the slightest information -regarding the secret dossier,
and said the only document of the dossier
revealed; and that was not by himself,
was the "cette canaille" document,.which
had been utilized by the enemies of
Dreyfus. „ There was also the "Liberte"
document, which was delivered to Ester-
ha/.y, "who used it to levy the most
shameful blackmail on the government."
Major Lauth folloAved. r He traversed
the ground covered by his evidence before the crimiual division of the court of
cassation in regard to the circumstances
under which Henry communicated the
bordereau. He said that when the bordereau reached the intelligence, department, Henry was absolutely the only officer wlio knew the agent who furnished
it, and was the only officer known to the
government. Henry, he explained, had
appointments with the foreign spy".in.,
question only in the evenings, at eight
or nine o'clock, at various places, so it
was impossible for Henry to hand the;
papers to colonel Sandherr the same;
evening, therefore he took them home
and   brought   them/  to   'the-office; in

THE WEEKLY OUTPUT OF WEST KOOTENAY MINES
IN GOLD,  SILVER,   COPPER,  AND LEAD.
A GOVERNMENT AND A LACROSSE
In giving returns of tho weekly shipments of ores from the various mines in
West Jvootenay district, it is almost impossible to give accurate figures. The management of some of the mines, like the Silver King at Nelson, refuse to give any
figures, saying that they make monthly'..reports to their head office, etc.. etc., etc.
Of course, none of the mines controlled by the Mine Managers'Union care to give
Thr Trihune any information whatever, for if Tiir Tribune is able to show that
the ore shipments are keeping up to the average of last year, then their contention
that the mining industry has been killed by the operation of the eight-hour law is
not good. The shipments for the Aveek ending Saturday, August 19th, were as

Major Lauth's' extremely long deposition was listened to in profound silence.
He protested at Picquart's allegations
against him; in the course of the Taver-
nier enquiry, when he represented hini
as the instigator and, perhaps, also, the
writer of the Henry forgery. "I declare,"
said Lauth, "that if by inspiring or writing it I had a share iu any way whatever in the perpetration of tlie Henry
forgery, I shotild have avowed it the day
Henry committed, suicide. I am riot even
now afraid of the razor, or the rope of
Lemercier, or -of Picquart, or even of
a broKen glass of Malette." After con:
trovertingfurtherstatements of Picquart,
major Lauth, in conclusion, declared that
Henry, "who knew nobody on the newspapers, held aloof from the press cam -
paign organized iu response to the friends
of Dreyfus."i :"r }\:,/:'::..:~j. K.-//^-■:':■ ': ';.f:i:i,

In regard to the Madagascar
note, Dreyfus, Junk        claimed,
told the witness that his cousin had procured him interesting information.
Captain Junk then spoke of the efforts of
Dreyfus to secure the firing manual, and1
'discussed ther theory that Henry might
have divulged the documents in the
"bordereau. Such a supposition, the
captain dcclaredi was utterly impossible.
Later the Avitness corroborated the statement that ; colonel Picquart proposed
postmarking the petit bleu with the
view of proving its genuiness. .
General Fabre, former chief; of the
fourth bureau of the geueral's staff, on
the witness stand today said that iii his
official capacity he compared the writing
of the bordereau with the writing of
various officers in his bureau, including
the writing of a probationer, who had

Manager in Trouble.
Special to Tho Tribune.
Victoria, August 21. — Ex-attorney-
- general Martin, today answering a question whether he would vote against the
Semlin government on otlior than personal issues said that nothing would
please him better than to see the government defeated on the first day of the
session. He added that with the defection of MacPhcrson, Higgius aiid himself
there was no escape from defeat. The
Province of Vancouver (government) discussing Helgescn's declared intention to
go into opposition unless the eight-hour
and alien exclusion acts are repealed, says,
that as these form so prominent a part
of the government's policy, Mr. Helgesen
must, if correctly reported, be :counted
with the opposition, and the government's defeat..is thus made^inevitable.
Manager Wright of the Nelson lacrosse
team has been ijroving the  wisdom of
The Tribune's advice  that they should
dispense  with   a   manager   and   hire a
trainer.    In Vancouver  he has been prolonging a squeal  commenced  in Victoria
about lack of hospitality inithis city-j and
alleged cinching  of  the Nelson team for
expenses he claims  to have expected tlie
James Bays to pay.   Wright complains,
through the press of Vancouver that Victoria gave Nelson only $70, about half of
which was  required to  pa,y adyertisihg-
arid other expenses,  which he thinks the
James Bays ought to have assumed.■;;j He
adds words very offensive to Victoria citizens and newspapers.    Secretary Dallain
says in re])ly that he made arrangements
for the'match, at the request of Wright,
after explaining that as tlie game was set
for the middle of  the  week, rather than
Saturday, large  gate  receipts could riot
be    expected.      Notwithstanding;    this,
Wright instructed  Dallain "to go ahead
with  the arrangements,  and  offered to
play for net proceeds" of gate, afteripay-;
ing the rental of the grounds arid advertising.    These stipulations are contained
iri tlie  cori-esponderice;;; The  gross pro-;
eeeds! of tlie gate were $93, not ,r$70, as
Wright says.   The net proceeds liaiided to

A CARIBOO M.P.P.  DECLARES
What He Will Do Politically.   "'•'.
Ashcroft Journal.
H. Helgesen, M.P.P.;  who  returned  tcr
Cariboo this week, and is just downfrom
Atlin,  where  he . spent the' season, says
that Cariboo mines are good  enough - for
him yet, and tliat  while  there are gold
properties that will pay for  working in
Atlin, everything is as  yet  undeveloped
and the country has been unduly boomed
as  a  gold  camp.     Politically,  Mr., Helgesen said, in a conversation  with a representative     of    the     Journal,     that
the     laws    passed     last     session    had
been      in       several      cases      against
his   judgment,    and    that    the   mining
regulations      now     in      force     should
be radically changed.    That he was unable last session to  get absolutely necessary appropriations for roads in Cariboo,
and that many things should have been .
done that Avere not to i m prove Cari bob's
condition.    It being  suggested thathad
Messrs. Helgesen and Kinchant stood together and  made  absolute demands the/
government could  not  possibly liave refused any request of theirs, Mi\ Helgesen is
agreed, but stated that  at that tinie,ifoiv i
reasons it > was  impossible to give now, Mi
they did not do so.   He is now oil hisjway; ;
to visit liis.constituency and will give an ic
account of his stewardship.   Mr; Hcle-i;%
sen  authorized   the   Journal tQ  sayjvas/i"
his i unalterable   conclusions, first, that
the eight-hour law was un wise  legisla-~-
tion and should riot have been  passed,
at least  at this  time, and that various
rulings " by    the    minister     of    imihesl
must be changed ; second, that thdxanti-w

Next,  disfiussing tlie. petit bleu,; major
-Baiitli^saf&^i^
enclosed in a jiacket early in Marell,    lil-
eidentally the witness mentioned the mis*
sion to Nancy oil wliich Heui-y Went, aiid
said tliat Avhife he Wa§ [absent his wife
eanie to the intelligeiice depaytiuerit td
ask for his   Wher-abOuts,  as she knew
nothing of  his departure,    "It wag tlie
same with all the ojfeoi.'s in the depart-
mont," said Lauth,    "Gfir families neVel*
knew where we were going 'when We Were
s8ut on a mission, aiid,it was trim tlife department  corresponded  with us;    That
pt'oves tliat tilings Were not conducted in
the foitrth bureau as alleged by colonel
j*ic(juartj and the oflieei's wei'e not .so neg-
ligeiit autl careless as lie lias asserted."
The witness   maintained   this also disposed of Picquart's assertion that Henry
was    iu    the    habit    of    working    at
home   in    the    presence    of   servants.
As a matter of fact, he added, the officers were   very reserved   before their
families.    Continuing,  the witness proceeded to speak of Picquart's orders to
destroy  all  evidence  of the 'petit- blue
having been torn, and to determine the
office by affixing a postmark, etc.   "The
spy Ceurs," said Lauth, "entered into relations with the ministry of war with
the avowed purpose of avenging lliniself
on, his government.     He  refused  to  accept payment beyond his fare to Basle,
as Ceurs was evidently an  agent provocateur  who had been sent to us.   But
wo were never able to get anything of
the   slightest   value from him.    It has
been said that we bullied him to prevent
his  speaking,     I  wish  the person who
made tlie statement to come here aud repeat it.    The truth was, we bullied him
not to prevent his speaking, but because
he refused  to say anything  wliich was
not known."

Captain Junk followed. He said he was

! fus, but in anotitei' department of the
war office,    lie saw the prisoner a great
deal, and detailed eohversatiohs in■ Whi'frh,
he alleged* Dreyfus spoke of great suliis
he liad lost in gambling and in his iutef-
courso with loose women.   "One day,"
the Witness proceeded, "When  we were
visiting the  eOlorieS shipiques,  we met
three immoral Wpi-ueiij Wlio bowed to us.
Dreyfus   returned   their   greeting,   and
I   said   to    him:   ' Well,    for    a    married man, you have nice acquaintances.*"
He replied  that  they were old  friends
of his batchelorlrood, and pointing to one
of theubsaid her name was Valtesse and
that she had a house on  the Champs
Elysee where she gave nice parties, where
pretty women were to be met and where
there was much gambling.   Dreyfus also
boasted  of his large  means, and spoke
with great relish of his comfortable house
and   travels.    The   Avitness   continuing,
said Dreyfus was well acquainted with
the scheme for the concentration  of the
troops aud could trace it on the map as
most of the   other   probationer's could.
Witness then detailed the work of the
different bureaus and  proceeded  to demonstrate   that, the probationers were
cognizant of the plans of the plans of the
transport and concentration of the troops,
and how Dreyfus was ordered to draw up
a report on German artillery, comparing

ealin liieasiired tones arid his frankness
seemed to favorably impress tlie judges.
Colonel pabov.ii.1, former deputy .(fhlef
of the- fourth, bureau, related how Fabre
had shown him a photograph pf an anonymous note in wliich the writer iiiti*
inated to his correspondent, "evidently
foreign to the army," tliat lie liad coitfi-
dential ddcuineuts to communicate.   Tlie
witness tpld Fabre that the documents
mentioned, showed that the writer could
Only be an artillery oflieer, belonging to
the general staff, who participated in the
expeditions of the lieadquarters stall' in
June and July,  1804.   The position  of
Dreyfus corresponded With these conditions,  and  "To their   great surprise," a
striking resemblance Was   apparent   in
the    writings,    of     13reyfus     and   the
anonymous   letter."     Witness    further
declared     that     only    a    probationer
could       possess        the        information
mentioned in the bordereau.    It Avas not
only because of the  resemblance in the
handwriting that suspicions were directed
at Dreyfus, but because he was in a position to be acquainted with the documents
enumerated.

"Jin .Tiiiy, ,1897, a jnceting of the directors was field in, my. rjftice at Waneta, at
which president Gowixn, Who tail been
elocteii to that position the year before,,
and directors SUrtsetor and John Dawson-

was electedto fill my place, but Co Walt,
as president: of fcl.ie .company, took possession- of tlie books and records ot tlie
office ami, installed himself as manager,
jny brother remaining with him as bookkeeper. With Cowan at the head, tho
works were kept going'till September,
when they were closer! -.down., and have
never since beenstarted up again. After
resigning J. liave gone east and liad nothing more to do witli the management of
the company.
"During tlie time I had been in charge
at AVaneta, I had kept the most careful
account of all the business of the company, which had passed through my
hands. Not only did J take vouchors for
all of the expenditures marie by nie, but
even the items on the various bills Avere
copied into the journal, every cent'being
accounted for. „   .       '^,
"When the works closed down' in September, 1S07, .-Cowan returned to New-
York, taking the books Avith liim. The
company had had an account with the
Traders' National Rank of Spokane,
through which J transacted "all of my
business. When I resigned my. position
as: ■■■'manager, there,  Avas   an;   overdraft

against tho company at tho bank, and
after Cowan took charge of the affairs at
Waneta there was a further overdraft of
about $1000, making the total amount
overdrawn somewhere in the neighborhood of $0000, and this is the indebtedness for Avhich the stockholders allowed a
plant that had cost them $55,000 to be
sold on a judgment.
"T harl signed the checks as manager of
the company, and when the cash for the
overdraft was not forthcoming the bank
attached some O. K. Mining Company
stock, of which I was tho owner as security. This attachment was afterward releaser], however, .when the bank learned
the circumstances, and the property of
the company Avas held for the account.
"About a year after I had resigned, and
Avhile I was in Chicago, .1 learned that a
committee had been appointed by tho
stockholders to investigate the affairs of
the com pany, and although I was sick at
the time I hurried to New York to be
present at the meeting of the stockholders at Avhich this committee was to report. At that meeting the committee reported that it had niy books and accounts
examined by an expert and that they
were absolutely correet in every respect.
"In regard to the 2 per cent assessment. That was inatle after-1 was'oufcof
the management, and I harl nothing to do
with it, but the money raised Avasnot applied to the payment of the overdraft at
tlie bank.
"After the assuming of the control of
the management by Cowan the bank
started suit against the company for the
amount of the overdraft and some labor
bills which, had been assigned to them,
securing a- judgment, under wliich the
property of-..the-'company--."was sold, leaving it with uo assets whatever, but before
this was done the bank had released my
stock from attachment.
"If there  Avas any thing crooked in the

The Alien Game.
Toronto Telegram.
United States capitalists are in a position to seriously impair Canada's ability
to compete Avith the American irommast-
ers in the markets of the world. A little
money and less foresight Avill enable
these aliens to purchase Ontario's iron
ranges and protect the American ranges
against competition liy a long-continued
lock-up of tho Canadian deposits. Ontario is hoping for rich results from
the activity of American iron men
in this province. Their activity may
mean that they are taking time by the
forelock and getting hold of deposits
Avith intent to prevent Canadian iron
from meeting American products ou the
markets of-the world.^Ontario's timber

Convict Statesmen.
As regards length aiid variety of prison experience, Michael Davitt, M.P., is
unapproachable. He has spent nine
yottrs in confinement, and is intimately
acquainted with the interior of an equal
number of jails. He is, besides, the only
'parliamentarian wlio has turned his
prison experiences and observations to
literary account. He is the author of
"Leaves from a Prison Diary." Last, but
not least, is Edward Gibbon Wakefield,
one of the most remarkable of coiiA'ict
statesmen. He served a sentence of
three years' imprisonment in NeAVgate
for abducting an heiress, and succeeded
in living down this very unpleasant stigma of liis early youth. lie afterwards,
devoted his Avhole time aiid attention to
the study of colonization. He acted as
priArate secretary to the earl of Durham
during the hitter's mission of pacification
to Canada. He was subsequently one of
the principal founders of the colonies of
South Australia and New Zealand. To

Silk Blouses Fashionable.
NeArer Avere Avhite silk blouses as fashionable as they are this midsummer season. The fad has extended to goAvns, and
the search for novelty in their makeup
has resulted in a far more effeeti\'e
decoration than the multitudinous tuck-
ings of the last few' months. Noav your
blouse or goAvns must have applique
designs in Irish point lace, which haA'e a
transparent effect over a colored lining,
as the white silk is cut away under the
lace so as to leave this lining visible. A
Avhite glace silk gown Avhich is arranged
in this way., and is trimmed with Irish
point lace in a deep shade of ecru over a
lining of lily-leaf green soft satin, is a
thing of beauty. To bo worn Avith this
is one of the neAAresb French hats, in soft
Avhite crinoline, Avith a Avide bent-about
brim and a high transparent crinoline
crown. This hat is tied under the chin
with a narroAV black ribbon and trimmed
Avitha mass of roses, shading from the
palest pink to the deepest damask, and
tied in the centre of the front Avith a
stiffly wired boAV of turquoise green ribbon. ;
