 ROSSLAND POLITICIANSADITATED  Over an Appointment.  (Special to the Tribune.)  Rossi.anh, August 1'.).-���-linssliiiid is in  the throes of a political crisis over James  Martin's action ill recommending .T. W.  Ronltbee for the ollice of police magistrate. It appears that he has given dire  offence by so doing to some of his most  intimate political friends, and they have  inspired the Miner, which conies out  with an article in which many plain  things ar<i plainly said to.Mr. Martin.  His main offence is that that the dictation of the Grit caucus has not been followed in the matter. Mr. Boultbee is a  Liberal in politics, it is true, but of the  mild British Columbia typo, and not of  the virulent Manitoba type. The whole  ,.matter is a. storm iu a teapot. Where  Mr. Boultbco's appointment was not received with approval it would be with  indifference, so doubtless he will do very  ���well. Its only interest lies in the rumpus between .fames Martin and some of  liis ��� friends. The old gentleman is too  like tlie man with the ass in the Cable, he  wan Is to please everybody. lie av ill  doubtless hold his job and vote straight  till the next election, but what between'  mine owners and trades unionists, grits  and tories, namesakes and Tiirnerite.s the  chances are he has had enough of it by  that time.  There is also a municipal row in view.  The new police commissioners have had a  pile of aflidavits filed before thoin charging all sorts of things against the police  of the city. -The chances are Avhatcvcr  happens they will wish they had not been  appointed;police commissioners..  The electric compressor at the War  Eagle must be proving a failure. The  War Eagle company is so hard up for  power that it is moving the seven-drill  compressor from the Crown Point tolled  Mountain.

GENERAL BOISDEFFRE TESTIFIED  Against Dreyfus.,  Rrnnrs, August 19.���There was a further thrill of curiosity when general  Boisdeffre, former chief of the general  staff of the French army, advanced to  the witness box and took the customary  oath to tell the truth. The general remarked that in view of the exhaustive  evidence already given he would try to  he brief. He hurriedly reviewed the  leaking in the ministry of war, the discovery of the bordereau, the arrest and  trial of Dreyfus, and the hitter's alleged  confessions before the ceremony of  degradation to captain Lebrun Renault.  Witness said he believed the confessions  wore genuine. He next referred to  colonel Picquart's appearance in  the intellicnnee department. Ho  thought Picquart too self-confident  and   '    not sufficiently      deferential  towards his chiefs. "It has been said "  continued the witness, "that a secret  package of papers was shown the judges  of the court martial of 1S91. I positively  assert that, in so far as 1 am concerned, I  never doubted the guilt of Dreyfus, and  never even expressed doubts of his guilt.  When he took over the duties of chief of  the intelligence department, the first  instructions I gave him were to follow up  the Dreyfus affair, and it is well known  what was the reason of these instructions." . . '. ;'.'...  .,:���' The general next described the interviews between himself and colonel Picquart, when the latter first -mentioned  Ester-hazy, without however, connecting  liim with, the Dreyfus affairs. Witness  discredited colonel Picquart's statement  that the latter asked him not to men-;  tion the investigation to general Gonz.  "General Gonz" said Boisdeffre, "is a  friend of thirty years' standing. I have  always had the greatest confidence in  him, and should certainly not have entertained a request to leave him in ignorance of what was occurring." General  Boisdeffre, whose evidence was attentively followed, especially bythe members of  the court niartial^ then related the incidents of UiisJJ interview with Picquart,  r?i!��ic$llyMitspi��*  ioOpbrfifibft'S -to-  arbiti'sitioi r *&6r oa;  >Kt$j;^^^  'ministeKofAyar'sei^m^^  feiBjii iSsipu .to.Toi ik n ii-;. sbjm*tueam u ister> of *  r ffiVvywr &liMistrji|f #:^^hh0mm  tradoi'.i..t^-J.;tliA"..hdpudjfce: -negigii^ eAV#1|4��� be ;  ' "slfe;fee"iMr: ^r^^?U^'u^'fijetefiiini, 'ia*-'.  . ^tind ��i$]i$tf0$^��gv$��l fe>b|uld;^h# lf4U-!.

You can  sleep in peace. Tho incident has been  settled.'* Do Boisdeffre decided lie was  not certain pf what had been said in  regard tothoconfossionstocaptain Lebrun  Renault. The general was also perfectly  certain the incident at the Elysee did not  occur January 5th, 1S95. It was, he said,  the 0th or 7th. "What is certain," added  Boisdeffre, "is that when it occurred I  remained personally at tho ministry of  war."  Demange referred to general Roget's  deposition to the effect that Dreyfus was  certainly intelligent, but,, he would not  have wished to see him on the headquarters' staff,and asked witness's opinion  on the subject. The general answered :  "I can only express the same opinion as  general Roget."  Demange���Was not Ester-hazy,' with  your kn6wledge,assisted at the court of  enquiry by major du Paty de Clam, who  gave him advice?  I am not aware of it.  Colonel Jonaust, president of the court  martial, put the questions to the prisoner, who replied : "I have nothing to  say to general de Boisdeffre." Dreyfus  then immediately resumed his seat.      .    :  After a brief suspension of the sitting  of the court general Gonz, who was  under chief of the general staff, was  called to the witness stand. He explained the motives which influenced his  actions during the past few years and  said he believed heAvas "animated by the  loftiest aims, namely, the protection of  the"..'army.'.against criminal attacks made  on it from all sides." In this connection  general Gonz dwelt upon the danger to  Prance of the "system of espoinage so cleverly organized against her by foreigners,"  and said that iu spite of Esterhazy's  statement it was impossible for him to  have written the bordereau, and still  more impossible for him to have secured  the information'contained therein.

(Sensatrom)  Replying totheconrt,generalBoisdeffre  admitted that the leakage at military  headquarters, after the condemnation of  Dreyfus, ceased for a year; Tbut in 1895 a  paper was discovered proving the communication to foreigners of a document  relating to the distribution of artillery,  and showing that a foreign government  was perfectly acquainted with the  changes.

General Gonz���"I could not give a positive answer to that question."  " Arc there proofs that the documents  mentioned in the bordereau worodelivered  abroad?"  "There was no direct proof, but the dispatch was certainly announced." Proceeding, the witness disputed magistrate  Bertulus' account of the interview with  Henry, but admitted that when he, general Gonz, handed Henry his forgery, the  latter insisted it must, not be shown to  Picquart.    (Sensation).  Replying to M. Demange, tho witness  admitted he had ordered colonel Picquart  not to concern himself -with the handwriting of the bordereau when he commenced his investigations of Estcrhazy.  "Then," asked =M. Demange sharply,-  "when you saw his handwritings were  identical with those of the bordereau,  did this make any impression on you?"  "Evidently," replied the witness, "the  two handwritings had a great resemblance." -..-...���.-''       * "������'���  M.

London, England, August 19.���Though  many signs point to the  extremo likelihood of war between Great  Britain  and  the Boers, and though troops are pouring  in   the . direction  of the  Cape, and tho  British army chiefs are deep in problems  of preparations  for  possible hostilities,  the English people as a whole scarce heed  it.    The   nation   seems   completely   absorbed in the Dreyfus ease.    As each day  passes Avithout an answer from the Boers  to .the proposition'of Great Britain for a  joint commission to investigate the effect  which  the franchise   reform  legislation  Avould haA'o on  the  Uitlanders, the probability of a pacific   settlement   of the  diffieultydccreases.    Yet national  interest, tired of delay, flags as the tension at  the AArar and  colonial  ollice groAA's.     If  Avar, comes Great Britain Avill awake Avith  a tremendous start.     If the Boers  surrender to the British  demands scarcely  more than  a  ripple  of interest will be  excited, so long as the Rennes court martial holds  the  Avorld  under the spell of  its dramatic recital. From a political point  of     view     a     rapid     and     successful  war  againt the Boers  would  probably  strengthen the hands of the Conservative  government more'^ than any other outcome of the present crisis, for the vast  preponderance of public sentiment hardly  endorsed the course of Mr. Chamberlain,  and once the British soldiers meet the old  enemy, the Boers, few would remain bold  enough to openly oppose the morality of  the-Avar.     Many awkAvard questions in  regard, to  the govemmen t's home policy  are pending, and perhaps it is fortunate'  for the Conservative party that the exciting events   abroad  distract   attention:  from them. ���  The German View; of It.  Brartr.iN, August 19.���The court ���.'mar-,  tial of Dreyfus excited much comment  here this AAreek, especially the attempt on  the life of Maitre Labori, the leading  counsel for the defence, and general Mer-  cier's so-called deubuhceinents.; The lat-I  ter are not  taken  seriously.

Rykert, of the firm of McCuaig,  Rykert & Co., Montreal, Avhen asked yesterday how soon the Payne would start  up, said that it Avas very uncertain. Tho  mine, he said, Avould certainly not pay  $3.50 for an eight-hour shift. No arrangements had been made nor A\^ere contemplated for bringing in men from cheaper  camps. The program for the present Avas r  to continue deA^elopment on the contract  system.  Together Avith A. W. McCune, Bernard  Macdonald and others he had visited the  mine and says the shoAving is in  CA'ery way satisfactory. The mine  is Avorth more money uoav than  ever before . and can ship 500  tons a AArcek just as soon as it is'opened  up. In No. 4 tunnel there is an ore chute  100 feet long which averages 2i feet in  width for its Avhole length. Tho "ore -will  run 500 pounds to the cubic foot and Avill  average better returns than anything yet  'shipped; from the mine. There is not  another such a shoAving of lead ore in  Canada, and it is doubtful if there is a  more valuable body of galena blocked out  in any mine inJAincrica. ; J  Speaking of the Galena Farm, in Avhicli  he is interested witli the recent purchasers, AV. L. Hoge and A. W. McCune.  Mr. Rykert says they have" $100,000'���'.  Avorth of Ore in sight.

But a representative of an eastern company which employs a small force on a property not far  from Sandon has easily outclassed all  others.

Loxno.v*, August 19.���-Public opinion in  Great Britain is becoming agitated over  the danger in regard to the bubonic  plague, now that it has broken out at  Oporto, only three days' journey from  England. An authority ou the subject  says; "The sanitary .arrangements of  many toAvns hi .England, including London, are not calculated to defeat the  disease. If we get the plague in the east  end of London it wfll spread like Avildfiro,  The bacillus thrives amidst unsanitary  surroundings, while sunlight ami plenty  of air kills it."

As this is .simply a plain story of John
Mills, miiuir, no introduction, beyond a
statement of; tlio identity of the man is
necessary. Mills lived near Rocky Canyon, and had often aroused the people
-thereabouts (or within a radius of twenty-
live miles) to a state Of interrogative
curiosity which had never been fully
satisfied. He dwelt; alone, in a cabin not
Avorth describing, because just such
cabins have often been described before.
When ho first appeared he had said nothing as to his origin. A tall, silent man of
forty years, he went at once into his
chosen field, prospecting, asking no advice, and giving none.
Mills had a'good eye for "leads," and
had been moderately successful, for several times he had developed claims until
they had begun to assume the dignity of
mines, had sold them and niovod on. In
IS91 he located a claim that seemed promising, and for weeks toiled at it single-
Jiandled. Ho was strong and skilful, and
'his progress remarkably rapid, but occasionally he felt a pang of solitude and
thought he ought to secure help, not
only for the forwarding of the work but
for the sake of - companionship. One
-summer day as-tJio mood was upon him,
he heard r a voice at the mouth of the
slope •■'marking tlie spot .where he had
started into the side of the .mountain...

The boy did not undei'atand this, but
ho gave an- assent, and started with Mills,
who noticed' that the sole of the visitor's
" step-, "I'll cobble it after supper," was
his comment.
"But about a;job, you know," the boy
put in timidly* stepping high ou account
of the loose sole.
"Oh. that's at! right," answered Mills;
ye'i'e hired. Didn't I tell volt?" And
thuy walked on.
In the evening' tho'y grew, in a measure
coididential, although Kvibe did most of
tlio talking, «s« Millstiobbled thedbfeetlye
shoo into' a state of usefulncstf. lieforo
bed-tinie liu'bc had told of Susie Campbell, She was back in, Missouri, where he
himself had been " born and raised/*
■'* I didn't have much money after
fattier add mother died," he wont on,
simply, "and Sue—her father had a pile.
I'll bet old man Campbell lias two thousand 'dollars out on mortgage right now."
He paused to note tlie effect ; Mills drove
another peg, while Itube laughed, nervously. " I fell in love with Sue," he continued, "but she woidd'nt liave it; that
is," he corrected, recognizing tlio awkwardness of the expression, " she didn't
seein to be iu earnest about it. Not like
me, anyhow, but fiii'ly she laughed and
said that if I'd get a fortune she'd marry
me.    So I struck out west."
" Must be a fine gal," said Mills. "Hope
it ain't serious. Has she got any holt on
Rube laughed again. " I wish she had,"
was his rejoinder ; "but since 1 came
away she hasn't written. Sue's just try-
in' nie, that's what she's Join'. It's a
way women liave. When I go back with:
a pocketful of money she'll be ready.
Oh, I know what women are."
John took a last stitch in silence, and
held up the reconstructed shoe. Thus
began between John Mills, miner, and
Rube Jackson, boyish, hopeful tramp, one
of the serene friendships which list until
death. Let the limit not be placed even
tiiere; perhaps, .strengthened and renewed, they last for ever.
During the day the pair worked, speaking little. In the evenings they read and
talked, or Mills brought out an ancient
liddle whereon he discoursed melody most
fearsome, but duly applauded. The
usual theme of conversation was Sue.
Gradually, the two built up an ideal
woman, and a home that she was to
adorn after the "Millennium—for such
they had named the mine—had began to
produce. Rube would not listen to any
plan that did not involve the membership of Mills in the family.
"P'raps an' old feller like me 'ud be iu
the way," Mills would say, and, regularly, Rube would retake this view.
Yet Sue never wrote. " Mighty long
trial an' slow verdick," Mills opined once.
Rube convinced him that-this was treason.
Weeks went by and the crucial test of
the Millennium was at hand. The hole
for the "shot" which was to determine
the character of the vein toward wliich
they had been laboring had been drilled,
the powder tamped about the fuse. It
was then, stopping to wipe his forehead,
leaving it grime-streaked, that Mills delivered a speech which, so far as recorded, was the longest he ever made.
"Rube, boy," he said, "we're pardners.
Understand ? Pardners. This shot tells
whether we find somethiu lousy Avith
gold or goes broke ag'in barren rock. In
any case, thar's wages due you, an' a
coniin.' It wouldn't be no squar' deal
fur me to getrich and you only to draw
pay for days' works; so, thar'fore, I, John
Mills, miner, as heretofore and ginerally
known, do hereby make over to you,
Rube Jackson, a full half-interest in the
Millennium, to have an' to hold, an' ycr
heirs an' assigns foreArer, amen. That's
a kerrect form, I guess, and no lawyers
needed nor papers neither."

He started £or the .cabin, but Rjibtj, lingered. "Retter coftie to griib," Counseled
Mills. "The old hole won't be fitteii to
live iii fur an llOur."
Rube seenred to assent,, but he did hot
fbilow. As Mills: reached the cabin there,
was a muffled sound, a tremor of r.oek lis
tlie granite mountain quivered, and Out
Still's was soon in the eabin getting
supper.  .
In twenty minutes the coffee had boon
made, the bacon fried, and biscuits' were
crisping in the oven. Still Rube did not
cpiiib. " I wonder where lie is," said
Mills. " Roys is so reckless," „nd with an
uneasy fooling he started back lip the
"Rube, come to supper! " he called.
His voice bounded, from side to side of
the canyon, but thot'o \vas no response.
The heart of Mills sank With tlie thought
Of impending evil. Calling again and
again, lie Went to the month of the slope,
out of which an acrid vapor floated, hoy-
ei'ing iu the air. " I'm afeard Rube Went
in," conjectured Mills, and hastily removing his coat he dropped it in a powder-
keg of water, swathed it about his face
and started blindly down the slope.
At the foot of it, held down, by a cruel
block, he found Rube, inert, apparently
lifeless. With a giant effort he almost
hurled the block aside, and taking Rube
in his arms, staggered,stumblecl, crept to
the outer air. Oh! the blessed balm, of
that air as it touched his face. He took
one breath, laid his burden down, and
fell beside it, prone, motionless. The sun
was giving the loftiest peak its farewell
caress. Below a bird was singing a goodnight song. . The rosy glow passed; the
bird was still; tlie shadows crept higher.
But there, lay the dead and the stricken.
The inquest was short, resulting in the
finding that Reuben Jackson had come to
his death by a dispensation of providence,
" aided and abetted by his own carelessness, for which, he being a boy, we do not
blame him." .
There was a funeral, too, picturesque
and pathetic, where the music was the
harping of the wind in the pine-tops, and
the finest tribute the tears of John Mills.
Then the grave was rounded over, the
participants—all but ono—withdrew,and
that night the moan shone down on a
solitary figure, his head bowed in his
hands. "Too late, too late," the figure
murmured. "We're ri :h, mypardnerand
nie, and it won't do him no good." JNor
Avas Mills speaking idly, for, clutched iu
in the rigid fingers of Rube, John had
discoA'ered a fragment of quartz threaded
and bound by Avires of0virgin gold.
The next day Mills Avas in Den\rer.
His first visit AA'as to a mining expert
somcAvhat familiar with the district.
"The Millennium"—said John, pointing
OArer his shoulder in the general direction
of Rocky Canon—"she's fur sale. The
price is tAA'o hundred thousand. Take
her or leave her."
Next he took his Avay to a lawyer.
"DriiAV me up ono of them papers," he
said, "makin' oA'er to Susan Campbell, of
Missouri, a half-interest in the Millennium."
"What consideration?" asked the man
of business.
"Consideration? Why, for my pard-
ner, of course."
Necessary explanations folloAved, and
tho consideration Avas placed at ten dollars, which' Mills conscientiously took out
of one pocket and put into another. "It's
best to lnwe everything on the squar',"
he thought.
" Want this recorded ?" continued the
laAvyer, Avhen the dips, spurs and angles
had been described with.technical nicety.
"Not fur a spell," replied Mills. "Jest
give it to me." An hour later he was on
an east-bound train.
He reached a little toAvn in Missouri.
As he Avalked the streets, he thought,
with a strange thrill of affection, that he
was Avhere Rube had been "born and
raised." Every villager- kueAV the residence of Henry Campbell, and soon Mills
Avas ring the. bell. The door AAras opened
by a y.oiing Avrmian^—Sue ! But surely
not the Sue of Rube's dreams and his
oavii iiiuigiuation. She Avas pretty, in a
careless AAray, but her Avrapper Avas begrimed, her slippers, one of Avhich protruded, displayed a hole, and her hair
Avas in papers. Mills AA'as shocked and
puzzled. The girl said "Good morning,"
and awaited developments.
"I'm from out West," said the visitor—
"Colorado." Theu, after a pause, conscious of an important omission, he added : "My name's John Mills." ;
"Colorado," rejoined the young woman;
"I knew; a felloAV that went out there-
Rube Jackson.:  Come in.    I suppose you
Avant to see i^av.    Ever met Rube?"    She

"Rube? Oh, lie's all right. He's had a
streak, o' luck lately. Thought likely
you'd want to hear about it, Well, I
must be goin'.    Good-by."
Once in the street, he took a paper
from his breast—a document of legal
aspect—tore it into minute pieces and
scattered them in the mud of the thoroughfare. "God knows," he muttered,
"that I've tried to be squar' Avith my
pardner, but it appears Rube didn't
leave no 'heirs an' assigns forever.' "
"Paw," remarked Susan, that eArening,
"there aviis an awful funny man called
here today. Said he knew Rube Jackson
out West."
"Didn't knoAv no good of him," returned the father. "That Jackson, place'] 1
never bring the amount of the mortgage."
A few days later Mills AA'as in the ollice
of the mining expert. "The Millennium,"
he began; "take her er IcaA'e her?"
"Take her," exclaimed the expert, trying to conceal liis jubilation. "Here's the
papers and your check, all ready to sign.
Where iu thunder'd you go to?"
"Jest took a little business trip fur my
pardner." answered John. .
