Kcn/.io was 11,11 old pioneer, coining to
British Columbia in ISliO from Fort Vancouver, Washington, where he was born

an educationalist of a very high order,
being a teacher in several country schools
and for many years principal of the Aric-
toria Hoys' School, and subsequently

The deceased was a Liberal in politics
and a staunch supporter of the present
.'•government. He was a member of Doric
lodge, A. F. & A. M., and ono of the most
highly respected citizens of Nanaimo.
Tho deceased .leaves a widow and two
sons, Benjamin who resides in Nanaimo,
and Colin McKenzic of Vancouver.
The Truth as to Ymir.
Much  is  made  in  certain quarters of
the  fact  that  Thk TitmuNK  maintains
that  the country is  not at a standstill
.-"merely because a few mine managers
happen-to be in a position to pursue a
dog-in-thc-mangor policy. Ymir is referred to as a town suffering from the
effects of the eight-hour law. The question might bo asked, how many mines in
the neighborhood of Ym'iv are not being
Avorked because of the eight-hour law ?
It is safe to say there is not one. The
-management of the Ymir mine have
maintained right along, through their
personal organ at Nelson, that they had
all the men: .they Avanted at both tho
mino and-mill.j If thoy have, Avhat other
mine near"Ymir is tied up? The Porto
Rico's mine and.inill are working steadily
- Avitha full force who are paid the standard
rate of Avages. The Yellowstono mine
lias  over  seventy  men  at Avork,  all ofr
: whom receive the standard rate of Avages.
Ymir, like many another toAvn, has probably been built up faster than the country on Avhich it is dependent.

National Government Not to Blame.   °
CoLU.Mtius, Ohio, August 17.—President
Ratehford of the United Mine Workers,
a 'member of the sub-committee ou mines
and mining of the industrial commission,
which has just investigated the recent
mining troubles at Wardner, Idaho, in an
iutervieAV declares the national government is in no Avay to blame for the unfortunate state of affairs at Wardner.
"Governor Steunenbcrg, auditor Sinclair,
Dr. French and others Avho are acting
under him are beyond any shadow of
doubt the only parties to whom this culpable wrong can properly be charged,"
said Mr. Ratehford. " In troubles of this
kind, Avhere life and property liave been
taken and destroyed, eA'ory good, citizen
must agree that the oxeeutiA'e of a
state has a duty to perforin. It is
his right and duty to restore Iiiav
and order, to guarantee oA'ery citizen
of tho common wealth fullest protection
of their lives and property; to give to
those Avho are charged Avith offenses
-'against the law a fair aud impartial trial
and to bring all criminals to justice.
Thus far the state should go and no further. It has no moral or legitimate right
to 'say-who shall not earn, a living by
their labor Avithin its borders; nor has it
a right to say to'employers whom they
--must and Avhom they must not employ.
That the. miners' organization is criminal

Daily More Apparent. * ;-'
Rennes, August 17.—With tlie usual
attendance and without any note ATOrthy
of incident, the second trial by court
martial of captain Dreyfus, the famous
prisonerof Devil's island, was resumed this
morning in the Lycee. Previous to the
opening proceedings it became knoAvn that
Maitre Labori, leading counsel for Di-oy-
fus, is slightly Avorse today. The fe\rer
continues to decrease and it is belieAred
he will attend court on Monday, Iioav-
ever. In spite of the difficulties encountered by the defense, today's session of
the court opened with brighter prospects
for the prisoner; Demange, counsel for
the defense, evidently came, primed Avitlv
questions and subjected general Roget,
Avho resumed his.depositiori on tlie opening of the court, dealing Avith the theft
of Esterhazy's letters from . Mademoiselle
Pays \ o a warm, fire of cross-examination.
A number of; the counsel's shots struck
bull's eyes and made the general squirm
in his seat. Unfortunately Demange is
not yet iii" a position to go thoroughly
over this AAritness' deposition, but general
Roget Avill probably be recalled to the
stand later on, General Roget Avas iiiir
able to eonceal his annoyance aiid'anger'
Avhen M. Demange scored."■'-....
Then came a witness aa-Iio proved to bo
a splendid reiiiforeemeiit for Dreyfus. vIt
Avas Bertulus, examining magistrate, who
received lieutenant-colonel Henry's confession Of forgery. M. Bertuliis gave his
testimony, Avhich A\ras a 'verRable speech
for the defence, coming from: a man of
the high legal reputation of M. Bertulus.
This evidence raised the hopes of Dreyfus immensely, as it apparently made a
deep impression on the members of the
court. M. Jaures, socialistic leader, was
among those present in court, and he remarked on the conclusion of ?the, magistrate's *estiniony: "This is the first time,
the Avholfe truth has been told before the.
judges." Di'eyfus displayed the.- keenest;
interest in the statements.of M: Bertulus.
The   prisoner appeared, completely ab-;
eA^orything arrived   in pieces.    That  is
v The court hero resounded Avith ox-
"clainations of surprise and Mine. Honry
concluded with saying : " f have nothing
more to say." M. Bertulus said he did
not desire to reply to Mine. Henry, adding
" she isonly a Avonian."
"I am not a woman." exclaimed Mine
.Henry furiously. "1 speak in tho name of
my hiisbaiid."
"How shall I reply to  madamc?." asked M. Bortulus."    She   is  defending   the
-name of a  dead  man   and   that of  her
child."    (Renewed sensation.)
After gazing steadfastly at M. Bertulus, who. aviis greatly moved Mine. Henry
descended from the platform and took a
seat beside general Zurliudon. M. Ber-
tullus thou left the court. .
Colonel Picquart AA'as then called. : Ho
_ protested most formally against allsus-
■ picioii of having caused ,the disappear-
ance of any document relating  to  Dreyfus.    Documents,  he added, had  disappeared, but he Avas  not connected Avith
their   disappearance.   He . also   repelled
with scorn the assertion that he  had endeavored  to  put'.- .another officer in the
place Of the real author of the bordereau.
.-",'-.■ ".It "is   true,"  the  Avitness  continued,
."that the name of captain  Dorval being
jnontioned to nie as "a  dangerous  man, I
had liim Avatched, and do you know, gentlemen-, by Avhom Dorval aviis denounced ?
.It Avas by his own cousin, major du Paty
de Clam."    (Sensation). ['..::
Picquart then proceeded to reply to various attacks made upon v.-him. "These"
tactics," he said, "are evidently pursued
'with .the object of lessening the value of
my testimony;" '.:.' The colonel next outlined liis connection Avith Dreyfus at the
military college and. aftervA'ards at the
liiinistiy of Avar Avhere, owing to the
anti-Semite prejudices of the general
staff, he first appointed Dreyfusto a de^

Avhich aviis Avorking on the plan of tho
concentration of tho troops and the Madagascar expedition. Ho added: "It aviis
in major du Paty de Clam's department
that the search should luivo been made,
or rather in his private room whero he
Avorked quite alone." (Sensation.) Du
Paty do Clam, continued tho Avitness, had
boon'guilty of grave imprudence iu having, contrary to the regulations, had
'confidential documents copied by simple
socretar.'c, non-eoinmissioned officers and
even privates, Avhereas the custom aviis
that such Avork Avas dono sololy by officers. Later on the witness said he avoii-
dered if it aviis hot to avoid the risk of
punishment that du Paty do Clam ••.advanced' the date of the reception
of the ^ bordereau at the iiitelli-,
genco department so as to make it prior
to the date of his, du Paty de Clam's, arrest in tlie third department. (Sensation.)

against the prisoner, but Avhen he be-
eatne acquainted with its contents he
found, that his eili-liei1 impressions Avere
entirely- WrOng.    (Prolonged sens'atioil).
Picquiirt then recalled the vehement
protests of innocence which the prisoner
had not ceased to make, dul-ing all phases
of tlie degi-adatiou. The Avitness declared lie Was quite ignorant of the confessions Dreyfus is alleged to have made
to captain Renault. Continuing, colonel
Piqiiait defended himself against the
charge .that he had alwitys directed his
efforts towards the. rehabilitation of
Dreyfus. He said he had only directed
the investigations made to that end when
he became aware that the Avritings of
.Esterhazy and the bordereau Avere identical; .and that consequently the charges
against Dreyfus no longer existed.
During the course- of his depositions,
colonel Picquart asked to be confronted
with major du Paty de Clara, and to be
permitted to deal With some peculiarities
when du Paty do Glum is in the Avitness
box. Next the colonel examined the bordereau and declared Dreyfus could not
have disclosed part of it. Regarding the
Madagascar note, the Avitness disputed its
value and said lie did not believe it was
a confidential note. He added that if
Dreyfus, in his capacity of a probationer,
hutl asked the witness for the note he
Avonkl have handed it to liim immediately. Therefore he, Picquart, Avas unable
to understand the sense iii the bordereau
reading: "This document was very .did l-
cult to obtain."
Colonel Picquart then declared ho had
never seen Dreyfus copy the smallest document in the Avar office. In tho.opinion.
of tho witness the department Avhere the
bordereau was discovered ought to  have

This is saturated with the Avater until tho lime is  slaked away. After the fire has gone out  of the lime the liquid is drawn oil*. After  this creosote of tar is added until a saturate solution results. The solution is  precipitated Avith a solution of sulphuric  acid, one part in ten. After precipitation the supernatcnt liquid is decanted  and the residue is found to consist of  pure tauric acid."  A Good Law For British Columbia.

CURRENT RATE OF INTEREST PAID   .  MILLIONS   OF   DICE..  The bone   dice   used   in   the   United  States, aiid- Canada are all imported from  France.    They  ore made in a manufacturing district  not .far   from   Paris   in  which  arc produced  various articles of  bono, and also things partly of bone, as,  for instance, tooth brushes.     Bone dice  are made in eleven  sizes, from 0 to 10 inclusive,  and in  each of these sizes they  tire made both square and round cornered, as are all other kinds of dice.    In all  kinds of dice there are sold of the square-  cornered A'ariety ten times, perhaps' twenty times, as many as of those made with  rounded  corners.     Round-cornered dice  are  often used in playing backgammon;  they - wear a br/tird less than square-cornered dice would and roll easier.    There  are made   some  black   bono 'dice   witli  white spots, but the sale of these is comparatively very limited.'   The great '.majority  of the very large  number of bono  dice sold are in the form of the familiar  white cubes with black spots.  Celluloid dice, which are made in this  country, aro of both opaque and transparent material.. Tjhe transparent dice  are made in saffron color, in magenta and  in green; the opaque in imitation of  ivory. The imitation ivory dice arc finished in various ways as to the color of  the spots, some being made: with black  spots and sonio with spots of blue and  some with red spots.    Th.e . spots on' .the  The upper eiid of the second or pharyngeal   tube���the  tube   which   takes   the  place of the pharynx���lodges behind and  below the base of the epiglottis���the leaf  at tho basso of the tongue-which  covers  the larynx in the act ol swallowing���or  behind and below the base of the tongue,  as the case may be.    Around the aesop-  hagus, or gullet, granulates and closes, so  that after the healing process is complete  the only passage from the pharynx to the  larynx is by way of the metal tube.    In  Order that fluids and solids may not pass  through this a device is provided which,  while cutting off the connection, enables  the patient to breathe freely.;-   But a substitute lias also  to be provided  for the  vocal cords.    This takes the  form  of a  metal strip, which is so inserted as to vi-;  brate under the influence, of the articulating parts.    The voice is incapable of in-;  flexion, but, although it is monotone, the.  patient  is .perfectly able to carry on a  conversation.  CANALS   COST   MONEY.  licism amount? There was a movement  among tin* clergy, caused by the fear  that the state was withdrawing its support, which took the shape of Tractarian-  ism and found its catastrophe in an inconsiderable secession. llitualism is  more love of church ceremonial aud music  than a movement of conviction. Many  people who arc indifferent to the doctrine go to Ritualist and even to Roman  Catholic churches as they would go to a.  concert or a play. The rural population  is not affected in the slightest degree.  Nor have the Ritualists among them laymen of mark. Their leading man is lord  Halifax, distinguished by nothing but his  title. England is no more likely to go back  to the religion than to the science of the  Middle Ages.  Political Promises in Canada.  The prime minister of Canada and his  colleagues tiro honorable gentlemen,  whom iii private or commercial life nobody would suspect of being faithless to  an engagement or forfeiting a pledge.  How conies it to pass, then, that in political life their conduct has filled their  friends with disappointment and dismay?  The most obvious and the principal  cause is, no doubt, to be found in the fell  necessities of machine politics. You  laboriously hunt corruption out of thebaic  lot box and  bring  to justice  its  petty:  FULt LINE OF  I* j  M^%Mm^^m^m^^m&^,  The Manchester Ship canal, connecting  Manchester and .'.Liverpool,;, cost $90,000,-  000, or $15,000,000 more than the original  estimate. 'Tlie cost of, the Nicaragua  canal, to connect the. Atlaii^ic and. the  Pacific through Central America, -and  thereby shorten the distance, between  New York and San Francisco from 15,000  to 4900 miles, is variously estimated at  from $10.0,000,000 to $200,000,000, according to the route adopted. Tee Suez canal  cost $100,000,000,:: The North Sea canal  in Germany cost $37,500,000, the North  Holland and the Corinth canals $15,000,-  000 each, and the Panama canal has cost  to date $250,000,000.     .  Canals when successful are generously  so. The Khedive's share in the Suez  canal, purchased by the British government in:, 1870' for $20,000,000, are ' now  worth more than $120,000,000, and there  arc many indications that the future  value . of the _ Stxez civnal shares will be  .' ��veil? .gre&te���B,iui:M  oh  '4i^Vi*J;iie;jJt  agents,  such  as  the  ballot -.stuffor  and  tho repeater.    Then it  presents itself in  the form of some powerful  raihvay  company or great local interest, and, instead  of buying  a single  election, takes your  Avhole government by the throat.     This  cause operates, though in a  diversity of  forms,     wherever     party    government  exists.    But  in   our   ease   there  is  the  special necessity of holding  together, as  the basis of government, a group of  provinces, geographically and commercially  disconnected.   This was compelled,  and  probably will continue to compel, grants  to the different provinces from a common  fund, the   chief   contributors to  which  will be the two old provinces, by  which,  especially   by  Ontario,  the   stress   and  burden   of    confederation    have     been  borne.    Nature  may  be  turned  out of  doors   by   political   enactments,  but in  some form or other she  will  return.    A  third cause in this particular instance  is  one.which many would deem laudable in  itself.    It is the influence of imperial connection and imperial honors, which leads  to expenditure for imperial objects, such  as political railways-, and  cables.^ There  can surely be no doubt as to the efleet of  this influence on the character aud bearing of the members Of  the  present government,   tind   especially; of the  prime  minister, since their elevation to the ser-;  Vices of the crown.

There was a general impression abroad  yesterday that the /ire limits bylaw had  been quashed, and that anybody could  get to work and erect frame buildings  within the fire limits. This totally erroneous impression was fostered by a.  statement in yesterday's Daily Unreliable, .which paid: "As matters now stand  there is unlimited opportunity for any  other patriotic: ('?) business man to add  considerable to the /ire risks of the city."  As a matter of fact the bylaw is as  good now as over it was, and persons  erecting such buildings will do so a.t their  peril. When the city"prosecuted PI 0.  Traves, police magistrate Crease -upheld  the bylaw. The injunction proceedings  down ab the Coast do not touch the validity of the bylaw, but merely the question as to whether Traves' biiiidingshoiild  or should not be pulled down before his  appeal was heard. As it is, the buildiny  will stand until the appeal is heard, and  then the validity of tho bylaw will be decided upon. In the meantime thosecrecb-  ing frame buildings Avithin the lire limits  will be running thesan e i-ksand be liable  to the same penalties and oxpouse as  Traves was.    P. E. Wilson, counsel for Albert Maslonka, intends to try today to get Ida  client out on bail, lie would have done  so yesterday had the necessary papers  arrived from Ymir. Tho charge on which  he was committed was shooting with intent to kill, so ho is debarred from electing a speedy trial.

The work of stringing the i'ecd  wires will also be commenced today by  the Jvootcnay Kleclrie Supply & Construction Company, which is making the  alterations iii the plant.

The Spokane Northern Telegraph Company has no direct comminiicivtion with  iNauaimo, so the people who were anxiously awaiting bulletins of the lacrosse  game were disappointed.  The Nelson Iron Works is an industry  that is beginning to get a foothold-  Nearly all tlie bessemer beams aiid <K>1-  uiiins used in thp brick blocks n.cAy under  ^vtiy^in^NtSlsfju^viH-e made altfTllelron  works, and much of the iron work now  used ab tlio local smelters is also made  there.  Miss Olive iTanna of Trail was married  X  to K. Ii. Lewis ab that pla.ee on the Pith  instant. As one of the first, littles girls of  Nelson, all old-time residents of the town  wish the bride a. long and happy life.  ,. A meeting of the rille association has  been called for next Tuesday evening at  S p. m. in the.Jowett building, opposite the  opera house. All interested in rille shooting are invited to attend.  Sergeant Boutledge, 'who with sergeant Carroll was sent out from Winnipeg to drill the Kootenay rille companies, came into Nelson yesterday from  Kevclstoke, where he has been drilling  the company there, and proceeds to  Kaslo on the same mission.  "*- The only people in Nelson who have  not been kicking at the web weather are  the members of the stall" of the recorder's  ollice, as their work has been materially  lightened thereby.  A special meeting of the hospital directors was held yesterday to decide upon  the course of action to be adopted with  regard to Dr. Pose's temporary inability  to practice. The special committee ou  the matter will report today, and then a  conference with the local doctors will  be held.
