 n itir'   ���"-���  -*��--- ^-^= -*-~-.-~���*fiT- *.���* ���- -*h.^~  A FIELD DAY FOR THE EXPERTS  In Handwriting.  Rrnnrs, August 2S.���The first Avit-  ness called today Avas JI. Paraf Javal, the  di'iuiglitsinan aa'Iiosc eA'idence Avas interrupted on Saturday by adjournment of  the court. Javal AA'as called by the defence to refuto the .system by Avhich Al-  phonse Bertillon attempted to prove that  Dreyfus had written the bordereau in a  disguised hand, and by means of a key  word, " interest," and that it could not  have been AA'ritten by Esterhazy, although  the document was in haiidavciting resembling that of Esterha/.y. With the aid  of a blackboard M. Javal demonstrated  the fallacy of M. Bertillon's calculations,  and criticized the hitter's unfairness in not  fi submitting ISstorhazy's handwriting to  ���' the same tests as Dreyfns's. At the  same time the draughtsman declared,  even if Rf. Bertillon had done so, the results Avould piwe nothing.  In brief, the   morning   session   may- be  said   to  haA'e   been   a   field   day for the  handwriting experts, Avho dcA'oted tliem-  seh'es to demolishing  one  another's evidence.   M. Lessoniore's testimony against  Dreyfus followed, and then.M. CharaA-ay,  the expert who previously declared Dreyfus was the author of the bordereau, AA'as  called   as   a    Avitness.      His   testimony  proved to be of the  greatest  interest,"as  lie came to confess he had made an error,  and  said   he  Avas  convinced  Esterhazy,  not Dreyfus, had Avritten'the  bordereau.  "In   1S!M,"  said    M. Charavay, "I, with  tAvo    colleagues,   though   acting    under  separate instructions,  Avas commissioned  to examine the bordereau, and a number  of documents, for comparison, unsigned,  and   in   different   handwritings.      I  examined first the latter documents, and by  the process of elimination, fixed upon one  .resembling  the   bordereau.     I   was also  furnished with specimens of handwriting  in question, but. was not told the name of  the  writer.    I  asked   if the  documents  could be regarded  as  genuine,  and Avas  told   the   place  whence they emanated,,  which could  not  be  mentioned  by  me,  and -which could lea vo no doubt in regard  to its  value.    I   make  this   remark, but'  I     think     it    ''explains     my     opinion,  for     I    could     consider    a     document  of this nature Avhich was not marked by  a certain kind of hanchvriting.    I therefore attributed to dissimulation the difference I Avas careful to note  in  my  report.    Now I must inform the court, that  in A'ieAV of the fact  that  a  handwriting,  which-' AA'as  not  produced   in   1S94, and  which-is evidentlyakin to the haiulAvrit-  ^/eei%im'Cyvtho"eon|l^^  ^rej^r^ja^y^  TUESDAY MORNING   AUGUSTo29, 181)9.

Pelletier,  "On October 22nd I Avas entrusted with  the verification in question. I handed in  my report on October 20th, and it was iu  November that I Avas summoned to  undergo a cross-examination on a complaint lodged by the military authorities.  General Mereier in short, had not the  slightest reasons to suspect the conclusions Avhich I had reached." After  replying to a question or tAvo from the  court, M. Pelletier continued: "After  settling this personal matter there remains nothing but to maintain in their  entirety my conclusions to tho effect that  there is no likeness in the Avriting of the  bordereau and that of the prisoner."  Continuing, the Avitness said after a  fresh superficial examination of the  writing of Esterha/.y .and Dreyfus, he  expressed the opinion that the bordereau  could only be ascribed to Esterhazy.  Before adjourning the court for the  day colonel Jonaust announced that M.��  do Freycinet, former minister of Avar, M.  Gallichere and colonel Coddiere Avould be  examined tomorroAv. The government  commissary, major Carriere, rose and  said: "I'have handed the court a letter  regarding the health of colonel du Paty  de Clam. It indicates that dn Paty de  Clam is Avriting his evidence, and that he  Avill send it to us. That deposition has  not arrived. I therefore ask the president to instruct the reporter of the court  martial t.6 have the evidence of du Paty  de Clam takeu by commission. Colonel  Jonaust assented to this, and at 11.45 the  court adjourned.  Rrnnes, August ��2S:���The balance of  eA'idence today Avas in favor of Dreyfus.  Five Avitnesses Avere for^ him and tAvo  against him.' The most interesting testimony was that of chief handwriting expert Charavay, who-had come to declare  he had changed entirely his1 opinion,  which in 1894 Avas against, and iioav is iu  favor of Dreyfus, whom he today affirmed  aviis not the author of the bordereau.

''It is a great relief to  my conscience/ M. Charavay added, "to  be able to say before you, and before him  who is the victim of my mistajkei tliat the  bordereau; is pot the work of Dreyfus but  of Esterhazy/' Aii immense sensation  Was caused in eourt by this stateineiit.  Replyiiig tq..colonel Jonaust, the Avitness  said that the mere examination of the  bordereau ftind the documents presented  for Comparison were sufficient to convince  hini that the bordereiin was not in the  liaiidw''ith'g of Dreyi-us. The p^isouer,  on being asked the enstoniary questions,  requested thitt Charavay give firi-tlier par-  ticulars of the reasqils Avliieh led him to  modify his opinions in regard to the  writer of the bordereau, Avhereupen the  Avitness Aveivt into a lengthy detail. He  expiitiued Iioav lie found unmistakable resemblance betAA^een the bordereau and  Esterhazy"s Avritin g<  M. P'elletie'r, another expert, prefaced  his evidence by saying he desired to  make a definite statement on the point  upon which he Avas in entire disagreement Avith general Mpreier. Tlie latter  had testified-that the Avitness refused to  tise clsitaiii documents submitted to him  for comparison in common Avith the  other experts, and said he had been led  to regard M. Pelletier's Avords wifcli sus-  jjicion, because of certain incidents. M.  Pelletier being summoned to appear simultaneously iu two different courts, had  Avritten to both excusing himself on tlie  ground of attending at the other. General Mereier declared this made him suspicious of M. Pelletier's report in faA'or of  Dreyfus, inferring that his failure to  comply Avith the summons of the examining magistrate in November 1S94, AA'as  contained in his report, whereas the report, the Avitness pointed out, Avas handed in ou October 20th.   ..

Speaking of the probable outcome of  the dispute betAveen the Slocan mine managers and the mine Avorkers, one of tho  best known railway contractors in British Columbia, avIio is uoav in Nelson, said:  "The miners have practically avou the  fight by leaving the country. Had they  remained in the toAvns idle, there Avould  haA'e been more or less desertions from  their ranks and more or less trouble.  There does not seem to be an idle man in  the country, for Ave are paying $2.50 a  day, and even then can't hold our men,  for many of them are quitting for the  harvest fields of Washington and Oregon,  Avhere harvest hands are getting $3 a day  and board." That contractor has the situation sized up about right.- There is a demand for skilled and unskilled labor all  over the country, and Avages are going up  instead of doAvn. The Slocan mine managers had better get in out of the Avet.  Silverton Ore Shipments.  Silver ton Silvcvtoniiin.  Forty tons is the total for the ore sent  out from the lake region for the week.  This ore consisted of tAvo carloads shipped from Silverton to the Trail smelter  by the Noonday mine of this place. This  brings the total shipments for the year  from this propeity up to 480 tons, and  brings the amount of ore shipped from  Silverton since the first of the present  year up to 1503 tons. All ores so far  shipped from this point have been heavy  galena ores, and it is safe t�� s^y that it  has averaged 150 ounces iu silver and  OArer 40 per cent lead per ton, so that the  value of the amount of Avealth that the  mines of Silverton are contributing to  the Avoi-ld can be easily estimated.

The.matter was referred to  the public Avoi'ks coninlittee AA'ith iJOAver  to act.  The   city   engineer   stated   that   the  teamsters wanted $&jjOji/toi^for hiuiUng  HEhe steellSipe, audTt~^vas decidetlto rise  the city team, uoav stailding  idle  iii the  fire hall, for that purpose.  A eoiumuiiieation was read from, B, S.  Tayloi-, announcing tliat the Hamilton  and Giant Powder Companies hud removed theft' powder to their new maga-  /,h.je, iUitl asked the leave of the eoiiiieil  to 'keep 8000 pounds of powder in their  old niaga'/.iiie on Hoover's point. The  mayoi- was strongly opposed to granting  tlie companies any favors, and asked, for  a inotiion to the effect that the companies  should only be allowed to store the  alnoui.it fixed by law. Alderliian rjillyer  thought they inight be allowed to keep  1500 pounds at the old inagazine,  lie said that niiriiiig men, especially in the Ymir and Suhno  districts, wore being put to great  inconvenience througli not being able to  secure suftieient quantities of poAvdor under tlie neAV arrangement. The powder  Could not be brought in on a passenger  steamer, nor in a row boat in rough  Aveather. Alderman Beer Avished the matter: left to the mayor with poAver to  ac't��--\ Eventually"the' communicatiori A\'as  laid on the table, until the next meeting  of jthe council, Avhen, it was hoped,  there would be a larger attendance.  Jjssias Thompson, contractor, here made  a ! personal reipiest to the council  fori the sum of $125 which had  beep disallowed by the city engineer.  He'claimed he had done work Avorth this  sum over and above Avhat the contract  called for. He also said his contract Avas  for $185 and he was $300 behind on it.  The city engineer subsequently explained  Thompson liad had tAvo pieces of Avork,  and that owing to a clerical error, he was  instructed in his contract Lo excaA-ate  two feet too deep on the ,one, and two  feet less on the other, though the total  amount of AA'ork to be done remained the  same. Thompson Avanted to be paid  extra for the extra tAA'o feet in the one  case, but objected to having the two feet  Avhich he had not exciiA'atcd deducted in  the other. The mayor Avas authorized to  look into the matter, with power to  act.  A letter Avas read from J. F. Gross explaining that the delay in sending the  purchase money for the city debentures  AA'as due to his Toronto laAvyers not  having yet given their opinion upon the  bylaw. He Avill Avire the money on  getting the lawyers' opinion.  The request of C. II. Bi'oavh for the  sewer, at present laid to the Star boarding house, to be extended up the alley to  his house AA'as referred to the public  Avorks committee.  The city  engineer AA'as instructed to  put   in  catch  basins  at  the corner of  Stanley and Mill, and  at  the corner of  Stanley and Victoria Avhen he deems it  advisable.  Alderman Kirkpatrick called attention  to the state of the road to the cemetery.  It AA'as so bad that at a recent funeral  the hearse AA'as upset. The hearse was  no longer taken to the cemetery, but the  coffins Avere transferred to ' Avagous. He  suggested that an alternative route to  the cemetery could be obtained by going  doAvn Houston street, Avhich could be  fixed up at a small cost. The alderman's  suggestion Avas agreed to, but no motion  aviis made as it Avas held that the geueral  clause in the public Avork's committee  report empoAA'ering the city engineer to  fix up the streets covered the case.  Thequestion of additional seAvers came  up, but it Avas decided to do nothing until the report of the city engineer had  been handed in.  Attention AA'as drawn to the destitute  condition of Mrs. Sinclair and Mi's. Maslonka and their respective families, and  the mayor A\ras authorized to look into  the matter and take measures for their  relief.  The advisability of calling a special  meeting of council to pass the road tax  bylaAV, a tux Avhich the council intends  levying at once, Avas discussed but no ac-  tiqn^akgn.

Many,  very many, who joined in blazing trails  to the El Dorados in the far Ave.st, Avho  [have built their humble log cabins where  [prosperous towns or cities haA'e long since  [displaced them, avIio set their stakes and  Jspent months or years to develop pros-  ipects into paying niines, Avhose hopes of  [striking -wealth  ended  not  in  fruition,  I whose tenacity of purpose and  bull-dog  lliang-onativeness led them, over and over  jigain, to venture their time, their labor,  [their all in other equally disastrous ven-  [fcures, haye either passed "over the range"  [to prospect for a home "not made with  hands, eternal in  the heavens,"   or are  [now Avith whitened locks, and .furroAved  [checks,  with  bent   forms and faltering  [steps, patiently Avaiting for the summons  [to lay aside their picks, pans and shovels  and drills and spoons and hammers, and  go up higher .where short, Avater and bar-  I ion rock aro knoAvn no more forever.  AVe  say  there are  many  old  miners  I waiting to join their comrades avIio "nave  [gone to find a bonanza iu  the Great lie-  jyoiui and Avho leave the world as they  [entered it, with nothing to claim save the  lair they breathed.    Hut tliey have done  Ji good  Avork,   they  lived   not  in   vain.  Il^ifty years ago they crossed the Missouri  (river and entered the "Great American  [Desert," into an' almost unknown coun-  Itry,  bearings their lives in, their 'hands,  [iiecting  and  overcoming; obstacles  and  lungers of Avhich they knew not, fright-.  [tiling or driving the savages of-the ]>1 tins  Yoni their pathway, and the less savage  (tniinals from 'theirJ lairs, but defying all,  followed tlie setting sun on its course to  hho  golden sands  of  tho Pacific, whore  jihoy founded an  empire   in domain, a  storehouse abounding in gold.    But they  [juiided   better  than  tliey knew.    They.  [>pened the AA'ay for others to follow.    In  luliixiiig' the   trail   to   the   Pacific   they  pissed over great stretches of plains and  Inountains, out of which Nebraska, Color-  l.do,  Wyoming,   Utah,   Idaho,   Montana  nd 'Nevada have been carved each treasure vault "froni Avhich countless millions  avu been emptied into the busy Avorld's  lhannels  of trade,  creating millionaires  jnd   multi-millionaires  while   the trail-  [la/.ej'S themselves wereawakening echoes  It camps that added more millions to tlie  I'oalth of countries and their people.  All hail to the old miner! He opened  [io gates through which the more for-  [mate passed to wealth. He unconi-  'iuliihgly ���euttui'ed the jirivatioos and  itrdshipsJAvluch^are o^eiLjlieihandinliids^  |"tlie pioneer. His youth .disappeared- in  combats with an adverse fortune.  Jid<ll6-aee claimed him before he fi.ui_.h-  his battle,and old age lias seized him.  |lysieally broken, 'down, but rejoicing,  i :liiis lived to see an empil'e in the west,  111 of whieh lie saw and part of which  Was." Envy possesses not the old  liner's soul. It��� -Will be a short timeoilly  lieii the busy, hustling, bustling throng  |��W around hini, grasping for the "al-  |ighty dollar," Will also fern,vol the road  jidiiig to the uiifciiowii hereafter, which  is prepared to. take when tlio signal is  Ivdtt' to "strike en/nip.'*  mouth an' say nothin'; an' more'n that���  you'd better mosey aAvay from here."  The man rode away, and the inspector,  addressing the postmaster, asked : "Why  didn't you give that man his letter?"  "Kase ho Avorked agin me when I  run for justice of ther peace."  " Yes, but the government doesn't  care anything for that." "lleckun not;  but I do." "But you were appointed to  'swerve tlie people." "Yes, an' i sarvo 'cm  too���sarve some of 'em liko old nick."  "My friend, I am  a  travelling  postoffice  inspector  and- "     "All   right  then���  travel."    "If I report you  to  the post-  office department, Avhich 1 shall  be yory  apt to do, you'll  travel."    "Reckon   not.  This establishment b'longs to me, an' nobody's got a right to tell me ter get out."  "How   long   have you  had  the office?"  "Ever since  I  built  it."    "I mean   Iioav  long have you been postmaster?"    "Bout  a year, I reckon."   At this juncture an  old follow  who  was  cautiously  picking  his AA'ay among  the  bushes approached  the  postmaster,  who  upon seeing  him,  sprang to his feet and exclaimed, "What  in thunder do you want here, Abe Smith?"  "Come after that paper."    "Didn't I  tell  yer that yer kain't git it?"    "Yes, but I  'lowed that yer might change yer mind."  "Wall, I hain't.     When  yer  refused  to  lend me yer slide 'an hoss t'other week I  told yer that yer couldn't git nothin' else  outen'this office."    "I'm  er goin' to  git  that paper."    "Not 'lesson  yer a better  man   than  I  be."     "An'  that's   erbout  what I think."     "Wall,  help  yourself."  With agility surprising for such old men,  they grappled  each  other and  began a  desperate struggle.   Abe Smith succeeded in throwing the  postmaster.    "Now,"  said    Smith,   as    he    began    to   choke  old  Plunnner,  "going   to   let   mo   havo  that   paper?"     A  gurgled  "Yes,"  came  from tho postmaster's throat.    Smith released his hold, antl suffered Plummor  to  get up.     "Wall," said the postmaster, as  he   stood   brushing   tho   fragments    of  leaves   and   bark   froni  his   beard.'   "I  reckon I Avas sorter mistaken  in  yei\    I  didn't know yer was' such  a  nice  man.  Come in, Abe, an' git yer  paper,  fur yer  have earned it like a man."     "Ain't thar  a letter for me,, loo?"    "Yas.'\ "Well,  I  want it."     "Kain't git it, Abie.     Yer  fit  fur "the  paper an'  not  fur the  letter."  "Got to have it, Plummer."     "Not lessen  yer Avhip nie-ergin."     "B'lieve  I  kin  do  it."    All right, Abie."    They AA-ent at-it  again, pranced around,  striking  at eaelr  other.     Finally Plunnner  struck Abe a  heiwy blow and felled him ; then, seating,  himself ou the 'prostrate  man,  he  said,  "Don't want ther letter,  do yer,  Abie?"  "Reckon-not,  Plummer."   "All" right���  come erhead an' git  yer  paper."    When  Abe had gone, the postmaster turned to  the inspector and said,  "Want anything  outen mo?"    "No, I think not."    "Ef yer  had er letter here an' 1 didn't Avant yet-  to haAre it, yer Avouldn't argy ther p'int,  would yer ?"    "I don't think so." ' "Don't  want no ti-uek Avith nie?" "None." "Wall,  then, good-bye.    Got ter go in  iioav an'  make up ther mail."  to groAv larger. It Avas now too late to  do anything, so I just pulled her Avide  open and old 211 hit that buiich of cattle  'kabif.'  "To paraphrase the language of Tennyson, avIio glides into raptures of admiration over the charge of the Light Brigade  at Balakl iva, there Avere just simply cattle to the right of us, cattle to the left of  us, and more in front of us. After it Avas  over our thoughts reverted' to the hobo  on the pilot. 'Go out and see if he is still  there,' I said.  "Well," said an old brakeman, under  Avhose feet the frosts of many Avinters had  crackled as he Avended his way in the  dark over many a long train of box cars,  avIio had been listening to the story,  "Well." said he, "was he killed?"  "No," replied the engineer. "There he  sat, as large as any hobo could sit on the  pilot, with an oyster can milking one of  those durned coA\rs."  A Burglar Paid for His Protection.  All sorts of odd incidents occur in England's banking circles, Avhere strictest  measures are taken to protect treasure  from the robbers and burglars. Some of  the institutions pay cash for information  of, and in some cases from, the criminals  themselves. The Bank of England's  yeai-ly budget always contains an expense item due to such outlays. The  first experiment of the kind dates back  to 1850, when the directors of the bank  listened to a startling proposition made  by; a "ditch digger." The laborer told  the directors that he had discovered a  neAV and unsuspected method of getting  into the cellar vaults, Avhere the gold and  silver bars Avere kept, aud that he Avould  sell''his secret to them for money. The  directors hesitated, believing that, they  had taken every precaution against loss  ���from' the vaiilts, in putting up heavy  masonry, with plenty of iron bars, and:  by manning the building Avith armed  watchmen. But they finally granted the  man, Avho seemed to talk fairly, a chance  to try his plan, and a night was named  for the undertaking. At the appointed  time a committee of the directors  descended to the cellar and heard a pecu  liar scratching sound  under  their feet.  Two hours later the floor opened aiid the  ditch digger bobbed up serenely, like the  evil  spirit in a spectacular drama.    All  "around them lay bars of precious metal,  totalling in value $1.*3,()00,()()0.    The man  explained satisfactorily how it was done,  and  as a rewai*d  the directors assured  him an income for life on an investment  of ��10,000.    The crook AA'as content, and  it is believed he  remained  honest ever  afterward.    But other cracksmen   Avere  tempted  by  his  luck  to  try  the  same  game, ond the directors AA'ere inundated  with    suggestions   and     tips    on    neAV  methods of burglary and how-to prevent  them.    Among  other  things  they   paid  $20,000 for a process invented by a young  chemist, for copying ink, paper, water-'  marks and designs  of the banknotes so  perfectly as to defy detection.    The directors found they could employ his system  more  satisfactorily and  profitably  than the ojie they Avere using in the production  of their currency.    Despite the  fact that these expenditures have run up  into big figures in the last half century,  tho directors  of today say  that all the  money Avas well invested.  The Tremont Hotel  P.

The first three  got away i'rom the chain gang when  out  at work,   but  on   Sunday,   between   one  and two p. m. Thomas Burns got out of  the prison  yard,   Avhere   he   and  other  prisoners   were    taking   exercise.      The  jailer on watch was called into the office  where a. friend desired to  speak   with   a  prisoner.    Sunday  is   visitors'   day.    lie  was absent in all about half an hour, and  when lie returned tlie bird had flown.   ]t  seems that by some means he got  up to  one of tho windows, climbed up the bars  and got  hold   of   the  gutter under   the  cave of the building.    1-1 o went along this  hand   over  hand   until   he   reached   the  stockade, then   lie;  swung   himself over,  dropped on the other side and made  off.  He is supposed to  have  taken supper at  McBoallfs camp, near the Hume which is  been built  to  Cottonwood   lake,  and   if  that is the case the provincial police are  confident   of   intercepting   him,   though  they are by no means certain  that he is  the  man.     Captain  Fitzstubbs, warden  of the jail, attributes his escape to the  fact that owing to there being no inner  or outer guard appointed, the jailer has  to'be in two  places  at  once.    The  men  are supposed to be constantly watched  while at exercise, and the rules also state  that   a   jailer  must  be  present  during  interviews between  prisoners  and  their  friends.     The warden was out at church  at  the time.    Thomas  Burns  was  sentenced to eighteen months' imprisonment  for holding up a saloon at tlie ball ground  at liossland.    Professor Frank Lewis and  several others are  undergoing  terms of  imprisonment   for   being   implicated in  the same scrape.  Are Over 2500 Strong.  .Tames Wilks, secretary of the Nelson  Minors' Union and district organi/.er of  the Western Federation of Miners, is  back from a trip through the camps of  Southern Yale. He organized a union at  Phoenix with a membership of 54, one at  Greenwood with 45 members, and one at  Camp McKinnoy with 45 members. There  are now unions at liossland, Phamix,  Greenwood, Gamp McKinney, Nelson,  Ymir, Silverton, Sandon, Whitewater,  Fernie and Lethbridge, with a total membership of 2500. The unions pay a sick  benefit of $10 a week and are not formed  to antagonize capital.  doctors enquire into her sanity, and if  they adjudge her insane she will be sent  to the New Westminster asylum. She is  suffering from the delusion that detectives are after her, and that someone is  trying to poison her.
