 MERCIER SEVERELY QUESTIONED  By Maitre Labori.  Rrnniis, August 21.���When tlio court  martial of captain Dreyfus opened in tho  Lyceo here at <>:10 a.m. today, colonel  Jonaust, president of tho court, ordered  that the evidence given by M. Penot, a  friend of the late colonel Sandhorr, chief  of the intelligence department, be read  by the clerk of the court, lb was to the  '���effect that colonel Sandhorr said that the  Dreyfus family offered lfiO,()()0 francs on  condition that he would clear Dreyfus.  Maitre Demange for the defence, disposed  of this allegation by reading the actual  note on the subject written by Sandherr,  thereby proving that the colonel's remarks had been distorted. Preyfus's  brother only having said in his letter:  "Wo are convinced of tlie innocence of  our brother and will spend our entire  fortune to discover, tho truth."  The testimony of the first witness of  the day, that of Linollo, a former official  of the government, was also in favor of  Dreyfus, as it was in direct contradiction  of what M. Dubreuil deposed yesterday  regarding the alleged intimacy of Dreyfus with a German attache, at the house  of M. Rorlson, a mutual friend.  The president of the court then called  colonel Maurel, who aviis president of the  Dreyfus court-martial in ISO I.    Complete  silence fell upon the court as tlie infantry  sergeant, Avho. Avas  acting  as   usher, entered   the   hall   and   conducted   colonel  Maurel to the   bar.    The  colonel, attired  in a black frock coat, wore the ribbon-of  the Legion of  Honor in   his  buttonhole.  His hair is grey and he has a ragged iron  grey mustache.   His face showed anxiety,  as though he were conscience-stricken, as  M. Labori lashed him Avith   pointed questions.     The   colonel   hesitated  and   answered in a  short,  choppy maimer, and  Avhen M. Labori finally-disposed   of  him,  the Avitness left the platform with a pale  face and the scared  look of  a  man who  has  awakened   from   a nightmare.    The  counsel harl drawn from  the  colonel  the  confession   that  the  secret  dossier   was  communicated to the judges of the court-  martial  of  ISM  by  colonel  du Paty do  Clam.    This aA'owal produced a sensation  in   the  court,   and   Mam-el's  declaration  that he only read one of  the  documents  did not affect the main  fact.    AVhile  his  protestation that the reading of the document had no effect upon him, as his ���mind  'was' already  made  up, aviis  nullifed   by  his subsequent declaration that this  one  'document.sufficed to convince him.

M< Labori^-" Giiiii -colonel Maiirel tell us  to 'what he attributed, tlie secret comliiii-  nieatiou of the dossier,? "  Colonel Maurel���" I have notthe slightest idea."  These replies Avei'e tantamount to a  confession that colonel Siiiirlhew and  licufconant-colouel Henry played with, 'tlie  nnnistor of war, And even that genoffat  (*<(��)'/:, assistant chief of the lieartquarters  staff oi: tlie intelligence depar'tjnonti, Was  shown as keeping. from the lattoi' jnst  what he pi eased'. Tlleh Laboi'i proceeded  to trap tlie Par'isszarcli despatch and  bring out contradictory translations of it  and the falseness of the filial version.  After hearing general Mereier and general Chanoine on the' subject* colonel  Jonaust declared the court would rule  the despatch out of evidence. The examination of general Mereier having  been concluded, colonel Jonaust asked  Dreyfus if he had anything to say, and  the prisoner, iu a calm voice, replied to  Mereier'-, statement that lie (Dreyfus) could have obtained the  information 'about the artillery  promised in the bordereau Avhile staying  at Bourges, where: the artillery trials  Avere being held Dreyfus entered into  an explanation as to how he spent his  time, showing he could not inform himself about the trials of tho new gun-  brake.  General Risbourg recounted Avhat captain Tehran Renault said about Dreyfus  and this brought the latter to liis. feet.  Avith a thrilling declaration. He pointed  out that the captain shook him by the  hand when he returned to the prison,  which is at variance with what general.  Risbourg recounted. "MoreoA'er," continued Dreyfus," when a frightful charge  has been hanging over a man's head for  five years, people ought not to talk of convictions but should bring proofs, otherwise 1 cease to understand the matter."  This indignant protest caused a deep sensation iu court. Continuing, Dreyfus  proceeded to deny the story that  lie made a confession to captain Lebrun  Renault/.  In the cross-examination of colonel  Maurel, one of the members of the court-  martial that condemned Dreyfus, M.  Labori asked : "(Jan you tell us the name  of the officer who brought the private  letter?"  Colonel Maurel���"It was du Paty de  Clam."  M. Labori���"Were there many documents in this secret dossier? Can you  state Avhat they Avere?"  Colonel Maurel��� "1 only siiav one of  them. I did not look at the others, because my mind Avas already marie up."  M. Jjabori���" Had tlie other members of  the court also made up their minds?"  Colonel Maurel���"Yes." Witness added, that,, two .-members of the court  confided in him on this subject.  M. Labori���"Can you tell us how,  knowing, as the judge, that it AA'as your  duty to seek conscientiously for information and to expect a sincere communication from the public prosecutor, that is  to say a communication setting forth all  the points;--, in the case, both for and  against the prisoner, yon could be of the  opinion your mind was loyally made up  after reading a single document."  Colonel Maurel said he failed to clearly grasp the question and M. Labori repeated the query, Avhereupon the Avitness  replied that he could not answer, because  if he did he Avould haA'O to speak of the  first document in the dossier, "which convinced the court of the prisoner's guilt."  At this point M. Labori said he would  like to confront colonel Maurel Avith captain Freystatter, another of the judges  at the court martial of .1804, but Freystatter was not present and colonel Maurel promised to wait'a few days and give  the captain an opportunity of attending.  A  lively incident folloAA'ed.M. Tjiibori  haying asked leave to in terrogate general  ��m{t$S"tiw^p  .'ffi' ,,��,��.���-��:�� >.K��/i    ."���^f.-"^-r^'"   "    '"'"       ���"  -- iu     "  'in  ;imi  Ws$l0  'ii'j$fi\re"r^^  1 it.v-i-all?/.V'TJigEiinjir.essU>n},4the  the contradictions in the eA'idenoe of the  officers of the headquarters' staff regarding the importance ami nature of the  contents of the bordereau, and ��� asked  general Mereier Avhere Dreyfus could  haA'e obtained particulars about the  pneumatic brake. Mereier then said he  thought Dreyfus might hiwc had cognizance of the brake at Bourges, adding,  "in any case he harl a better chance to  obtain such knowledge than Esterhax.y  could possibly have had-"  M. I_abori���"General Mereier says Dreyfus might have had cognizance. I desire  to enipha.si/.e that expression. We shall  uoav prove. Dreyfus could not have had  cognizance of the brake."  The counsel proceeded to demonstrate  Iioav rigorously the secret of the construction of the brake Avas guarded, and  asked Avhy in 1894 the charges regarding  the robin melinite shells Avere not dealt  with.  General Mereier���"That arises from the  simple fact that it Avas not knoAvn until  1S05 or 1S97 that information on the subject A\ras being divulged. The existence  of treachery in regard to the distribution of heavy artillery among the army  corps was unknown until 1895."  The passages-at-arms betAveen M. Labori and general Mereier Avere followed  Avith the keenest interest. Both men  were -wary and ...-mutually'- suspicious of  each other, and there was considerable  acerbity, colonel Joiiaust finding difficulty  iu preventing the discussion from Ayan-  dering outside the legal paths. Continuing, M. Labori asked AArhy general Mereier did not have a report -prepared regarding the confession Dreyfus is alleged to have made to captain Lebrun-  Renault.  Mereier���" The question of the confession was of uo importance, as a revision  of the case seemed impossible."  M. Jjabori���" What does general Mereier think of Esterhazy and the part he  played?" ;  General Mereier���"I do not know Es-  terhazy and I do not think about him at  all." '.. ���  M. Jjabori���" Did he knrnv you at his  trial in 1898?^' ; ^  connected with the preliminary inquiry.  General Gonz said the document had  been in the possession of colonel Sandherr and it AA'as by him placed in the  secret dossier for comparison with other  papers.  ���M. Labori asked for explanations in regard to the commentary- on the secret  dossier, and general Mereier admitted he  destroyed it in 1897. General Gonz, Avho  was examined on the same subject, declared that it was by order of general de  Boisdeffre that he returned the commentary to general Mereier. Answering  another question, Mereier said the Pan-  izzarrli telegram was not communicated'  to the court martial of 1S91. He was ordered by general de Boisdeffre to include  it in the secret dossier.    (Sensation).  Counsel next discussed the three page  document, claiming that the false reading of the Panizzardi telegram aviis to  point directly to Dreyfus as the traitor.  Mereier asked to be allowed to converse Avith general Chanoine before  attempting to explain. General Chanoine thereupon ...advanced and explained about the document .which  had been handed him by general Mereier.  He said he conceded inaccuracies in it  and resolved not to use it. Witness, had  been carried away by testifying. He  read a page of the document, and it; was  after a friendly conversation with maitre  J-abbri that he read the entire document  in court at general Mercier's request anrl  returned him the document. General  ���Mereier .acknoAvledged' the accuracy of  general Ghanoine's statement, adding  tliat it Avas colonel-du-.Paty de Clam who  had given him the documents. (Sensation.) Counsel had the document re-read  aud offered the two Versions of the' two  telegrams of November 2nd, one designating Dreyfus as communicating documents to Germany, M" Labori pointing  out M Paleologue, of the foreign ollice,  denied,tliat the minister of foreign affairs had communicated -this: version, and  asking Avhy general Mereier had'received  it through dn I'aty de Clam,  :At     this     juncture    general    Roget  mounted the platform and expressed sur-  tfr#$^e$TO_\^  ^0liut^��eSte"rjl^  ferring to the Aisit of du l'aty de Clam,  the minister is Avell  aAvare  that  I am  innocent.   What I meant to intimate was  that I   had   apprised   the  minister,   in  response to steps which du Paty de Clam  had   taken    against    nie,    that   J   was  innocent.      Du    Paty-de   Clam   visited  me    and    asked     for    information.      J  replied     to    him:       J    am      innocent  absolutely.   I replied verbally to du Paty  de Clam, and in writing to the  minister  that J Avas perfectly innocent.    That Avas  what I meant-by the AA'orrls : 'The ministry  is  Avell  aware  that J am innocent.'  Then J reverted to the A'isit  of du .Paty''  'do.Clam  and  said  to   captain  l_obrun-.  Renault: 'Du Paty de Clam asked'ihe if  [had not giA'en documents of no importance  in  order  to  obtain  others  in   exchange.'    I replied only that I  Avas absolutely innocent, and that  I  desired that  the whole matter should   be  cleared up.  Then I added I hoped that within tA\'o or  three years my innocence Avould bo established.    I told du Paty. de  Clam  that I  wanted full light on the matter,���that..an"  injury  had  been  done  and   that it \vas  impossible for the government to fail to  use its influence  to "discover the whole  truth.    'The  government,'  I  said,  'has  means,   either    through    the    military  attaches or through diplomatic channels,  to  reach  the  truth,'  and   I  also   said:  'It   is   aAvful   that    a    soldier    should  be     convicted     of     such    a    frightful  crime.    Consequently it seemed to me, I  who only asked for the truth  and light,  that the government should  use all tho  means at its disposal to secure that light.  DuTaty de Clam   replied :     "There  are  interests   at   stake higher, than   yours,  these channels cannot be employed,"   He  added, however, that the inquiries Avould.  be continued.    It Avas on the strength of  du ]?aty de Clam's promise to try  Avhat  means could be found to reach/the truth  about this aAvful crime that I said that J  hoped that in two or three years , my in-  nocenco Avrmlrl be proved, for'.du lJaty de  Clam told me   an   investigation   Avhicli  Avould  be  of the inost delicate' nature  could not be undertaken immediateljr. ,1  think I lnwe expressed my .'������"whole '"mind.'

Rosuiiiiiig iiiaexivin'iiia-  tion of geiiiiral 'M-ufclcuv M. Jjabori asked  liiin several questions as to AVliy  lie at first ascribed the data of  the bordereau to the month of April.  General Mereier said that iu 1894 he Avas'  only acquainted with the general reasons  Avhicli. existed for believing Dreyfus  guilty, and had not paid much attention  to the details. The general refused to  reply to any further questions. For instance, he declined to say Avhethcr lie  had examined the proofs advanced against  Dreyfus.  M. Jjabori���"In short yon considered if  iu the nature of a sensational move to  have Dreyfus prosecuted and sentenced,  Dirl you examine previously the charges  against Dreyfus?"  General Mereier���"I only examined the  nature of the documents betrayed."  M. Labori���"Was it not necessary for  that purpose to fix the dates of the  bordereau."  General Mereier���"I do not think so,  further, I declare that Labori is discussing the whole trial of 1S94. That may  have some interest from a historical  point of view. But since the court of  cassation met it seems to me it is not for  us uoav to revert to the various features  of that trial."    M.

Jjivbo-ri jioiuted <mt that the plticeof  origin had been mentionud in court, lyld  then asked for explanations in regard to  the peipetration of tlie 1891 forgery.  The croSs-exainiiiation of general Mereier  ber'aine more and inore heated, and so  rapid that it AvaS dinicult to '.olIoav:, and  many of the answers were confusing. As  the questions of the counsel touched upon the secret dossier and a certain document in blue pencil, general Gonz, general Roget, M. Gribblin and major Jjiitith  also participated'in the discussion which  almost degenerated into a wrangle.  The commissary, major Carriere, protested against such a discussion. The  commissary said an attempt was being  made to show there afresh forgery Avhich.  was used for the purpose of comparisons,  to Avhich M. Labori retorted that major  Carriere Avas mistaken.

Major Rautli said he believed a clue to  the bine pencil document existed before  the trial of 1804 anrl M.Labori asked Avhy in  iii that case, it Avasnotproduced at the trial  since it incriminated the prisoner.

On the Avay from the  prison La Sainte, captain Ijebruli-Renault  shook hands with me, a fact .which is  contradictory Avith his statement.  besides, when such a, terrible charge has  been hanging over a man avIio has resisted  for five years, witnesses should not come  here to merely speak their beliefs, but  ought to bring proofs, positive proofs,  otherwise, I am completely nonplussed as  to Iioav I can reply," Continuing, Dreyfus said: "Reference Avas also made to  confessions.

Estorhazy was seen entering  the German embassy on several occasions,  ahvays quite openly but dressed in eivil.-  ian clothes.  WORK HAS FAIRLY STARTED ON  The Big Tunnel at Ainsworth.

It is expected that this Avill give  ample power, at any season, to driA'e  both the compressor and the concentrator.  The tunnel is 8 by 8 feet in the clear,  and Avill be double tracked. About (JO  tons of ore froni the Little Phil mine is  being run through the concentrator  daily. If this tunnel outs tho veins that  show on the surface, Ainswortli will be  one of the best camps in British Columbia.    Semlin Saws Wood.  (Special U) the Tribune.)  Vjctoiua, August 21.���Alain's circus  Avas the lending topic of .conversation  yesterday on account of their levying a  dollar rate for admission in place of the  usual four bits, but today the political  ring again engages the attention of those  with time to spare from their oavii business. Premier Semlin politely informs  intervioAvers that he has nothing to say-  on the situation, so, iu the absence of  fresh facts, the opposition continues  figuring. The Colonist counts that the  government uoav has but sixteen supporters, classing Martin of Rossland  as independent on the authority  of his own declaration, treating Helgesen  as conditionally opposed, Pi-entice as unable to take his seat, and giving Higgins,  Joe Martin and MePherson as straight opposition. The lieutenant-governor relieved Turner because he could not show  lip more than nineteen supporters of his  government, and" the Victoria Globe  shrieks with indignation at his continuing to ignore tho defections which have  brought the Semlin party, down to..six:  teen.

SAVINGS BANK BRANCH.  niJIlltKNT IIATIC OK INTKRKST 1'All)  THE   CUP   CHALLENGER.  "When llorbnvii frl.-idstoiio declarer 1 in  liis speenli m, Mie laiincliiiif? of tho Shamrock that every man and woman in tlie  eriuntry admired sir Thomas Lipton's  "tfererosily, pluck, and determination in  his sportsman-like endeavor to win back  tho cup," he recognized tlie popular interest in the owner of tlie new yacht,  liis predecessors among tlie cup-challengers were not known as sir Thomas is  known. The people have read the Lipton  advertisements for years, there are Lip-  ton shops everywhere, and Lipton teas  and Lipton jams are household words.  These facts are intimately connected  with the possibilities of tlie present, for  they have given sir Thomas a power  which sir Richard Sutton, lieutenant  Jlenn, or lord Uunraven rlid not liave���  the possession of millions of pounds  sterling.  Notwithstanding the general acquaintance with sir Thomas Lipton's challenge,  anil his lavish expenditure of funds in  preparation for the international contest,  his project is not made much of by thy  journals. Indeed, it would seem that  the sentiment of loyalty alone was responsible i'or what little is said of it.  The launching was a private afiair, but  among the guests were the carl of Clan-  william, countess (Jlaiiwilliain, admiral  lord Charles Bcresforrl, the marquis of  Dufferin and Ava, anrl the right ITon.  ' Herbert Gladstone. Lady Russell performed the ceremony of christening the  vessel, and while the few words she sairl  were reported in the London newspapers,  there was no extended^description Jof the  great central figure of the event: At her  - trial before the breeze ab Cowos,,which is  a yachting centre, there were nob more  than three-score spectators on the beach,  and though tho prince of Wales visited  tlie yacht���at some risk to his royaLpor-  son. as the sea was rough���the initial  races'were not set down as scenes of excitement.  Tho .owner of the Shamrock does not  " mind this evident coolness. * He" is able to  measure the value of journalistic aid and  to command it,as occasion may seem to  require. Thirty years ago he began in  poverty tlie career which placed him ac  the hear! of the great tea-merchants of  "the world, with branch concerns and  connections in all civilized" countries.  His name is, perhaps, as well known in  America as here, for in your great Western centre of trade, Chicago, he owns immense packing-houses, and a line of refrigerator-cars is managed from his  offices there. Yet sir Thomas has earned  his   prominence   fairly.      His   charities^  "have been numerous, and-in one instance  ��� that of his maguilicent subscription to  the princess of Wales's fund for the poor  during the queen's jubilee���are almost  unparalleled in the history of beneficence.  His knighthood, bestowed upon him last  year, was a reward for his business-like  philanthropy.  Although Glasgow was sir Thomas's  birthplace, his parents were Irish, and  that he lias the pride of race is shown by  his selection of the name Shamrock for  his yacht, anrl the fact that she flies the  flag of the Royal Ulster Yncht Club. His  latest efforts to bring still greater honor  to Ireland were recognized by a pretty  gift recently sent him from Fontafoi'ry,  County ��tfwn, in the shape at (i box of  Irish linen handkerchiefs of delicately  beautiful \Vorkmansbip, embroidered in  shamrocks surround ing the Celtic word  signifying "good luck." These tokens of  esteem came from a regatta committee of  forty members from the' district club at  Belfast.  From the moment he decided to challenge the eup, sir Thomas gave his orders  without regard, for expense, and now that  the Shamrock is across the Ocean, the  maghiMde of his plans becomes apparent.  Yachting lias been his diversion for  years, and even if he does not rank with  the great experts in this line, he is able  to engage the services of the best. Tho  racing vessel is accompanied on her western voyage by the Erin, sir Thomas's  steam yacht, which he purchased from  count Florio of Genoa. The Shamrock  has two captains and a crew of twenty-  seven men, and this force may bo doubled  at any time���and will be ou racing rlays  "���by a draft on the crow of the Erin.  Accompanying the sailors are some of the  most skilled among the builders, polishers, and sail makers of the great Thoruey-  croft yards. The Shamrock was insured at Lloyds' for forty thousand  pounds just before starting.  Sir Thomas will go to America on a  steamer which he has charterer! for the  voyage, and will be accompanied by a  large number of guests, who will bo entertained by him during the entire stay.  Mr. William Pife, Jr., the designer of the  Shamrock, who goes to Avitness her contest with the Columbia, has been in  America twice on decisions similar to the  one now engaging his attention, as he  saw the cup races in which the Thistle,  anrl afterward the Valkyrie, took part.  His interest in this event is second only  to that of his patron. There are whisperings, as usual, that some new secret of  especial value is hidden iu the construction of the Shamrock, and her performance may demonstrate that his faith in  his latest creation is fully warranted.  Some show of secrecy concerning the  shape aud appearance of the Shamrock  has been attempted by correspondents,  but her officers contend that this is entirely unnecessary. The points in her  description which seem intelligible to  those of the nautical world may bo stated  in a brief paragraph. She is sairl to be  one hundred, anil twenty-five feet long,  her water-line eighty-five feet, beam  twenty-five feet, and draft eighteen feet  six inches. Her sail area is much greater  than that of any previous challenger for  the cup, anrl is not less than thirteen  thousand feet. Unlike tho Valkyrie, she  is steered with a tiller instead of a wheel.  She is very handsome in her coat of  emerald-green, with highly polished  bronze mountings. Her trials showed  that she turns with extraordinary ease,  and that she sails up to windward closely  with remarkable speed.  Whatever may be the outcome o�� the  races with America's cup-defender, Sir  Thomas seems prepreparcd to accept the  result with good nature. In an address  to his crew just before the Shamrock  sailer!, he told tho men that he avould appreciate their success in a way that would  be satisfactory to all, and tliat they could  depend ���upou it that they would get as  fair play'iu New York as anywhere in the  world.' Should sir Thomas be forced'into  the ranks of those who have challenged  only to, meet rlcfeat, his striving will have  been sportsmanlike, even if spectacular.

Ohio has forty municipal electric light  plants; Michigan has thirty-five; Illinois,  thirty-four; Minnesota, twenty-fivojlowa,.  twenty-three; Missouri, ' nineteen ; Indiana, eighteen ; New York, fourteen ;  Pennsylvania, thirteen; Massachusetts,  eleven. Tho average saving over private  ownership is abovt one-half.  Jacksonville, Florida,-gets about $1000  per month from its municipal electric  plant, besides furnishing tho city with  free light worth about $1700 per year.  Chicago paid $250 a year oer light under the system of private ownership.  Avhile under public ownership the city  pays only $90 a year por light.

Ex-governor Pati-  Son says that the people have already  been robbed of nearly five hundred millions of dollars by these roads.  What have the people's representatives  been doing all this time?   If the  people,  through land grants, etc., built the roads,  why don't they own them?   Their earnings ou a legitimate basis would go along  way   toward   paying    govern meat   expenses. _______  Street Railways.  In the matter of carrying passengers  upon street rail ways, the trend of thought  in the United States, Great Britain and  on the continent is strongly in the direction of public ownership.  It is only about fifty years since this  improved method of transportation was  used in New York city, and it was hardly known elsewhere in America until  about the time of thecivil war.  Of course the first developments in  street railways, both in Europe and  America, Avere due to private enterprise,  and at first the private ownership of  the lines Avas universal. Noav, hoAvever,  street railways are owned and operated  by thirty-three cities in England and  Scotland. The city of London has acquired the plant of several operators and  in a feAv years will be prepared to operate  a complete system.  The case of Glasgow is again Avorthy of  especial study. She began the operation  of street railways in 1804, and one result  of tho matter is that thirty-nine per cent  of the ear fares in that city are only one  cent, the general-avorage being about  tAvo cents for all the passengers carried,  as they have a schedule of prices for the  various distances Avhich are traveled.  The directors say: "It is doubtful if  the public fully realize the benefits they  are deriving from the present fares of  the trannvay system as compared with  those charged before the city took the  Avorks into their oavh hands. Supposing  the 90,000,000 who traveled by the tramway last year had paid the fares charged  three years ago, it Avould havo cost them  about 180,000 pounds storling more than  it has done."  Here is $900,000 saved on their car fare  to the inhabitants of a single city in one  year, and that city only about half the  size of Chicago. To employes the directors have granted an increase of Avages  amounting to about $2(3,500 annually.  Two uniforms each year are also supplied  to employes, and still, Avith high wages,  low fares, and good service, they are  making excellent profits.  Sheffield completed her first year in the  street-car business in August of 1S97 Avith  a net gain of over $40,000 to the corporation. They also reported 2,000,000 extra  passengers. They paid to employes an  increase of Avages amounting to $12,500,  besides furnishing uniforms and allowing  shorter hours. We might cite also tho  successful ventures in  this direction by  FULL LINE OF  Dublin, Halifax, Huddersfield,'Plymouth,  Newport, Leeds, Leicester, Bradford and  others.  Switzerland, Holland and Germany are  also falling into line along these great  reforms.  In the city of Berlin no attempt has  been made to reduce the fare, but the  street railways thero are paying millions  into the government treasury.  In America there are very few cases of  public ownership of street railways. The  combined cities of New York and Brooklyn, however, have since 1S83 successfully  operated a cable road one mile long over  Brooklyn bridge. At Port Arthur, iu  Canada, the municipality operates a line  eight miles long. >  Water Works.  At the beginning of the nineteenth  century the water., supply of nearly all  cities Avn-s obtained from private sources  or private corporation?, but there is now  no city having public water works Avhere  intelligent voters would deliberately go  back to the olrl methods.  The city of Chicago, for  instance, built  a maguilicent and expensive water system,  by issuing bonds against it.    The big engines haA'e Avorked away, pumping Avater  into   the   mains,   and   money  into  the  treasury     until     they     have      earned  ��� enough to   pay off all of the .bonds, and  ,last   year   harl     three   million   dollars  to    their    credit,   anrl   this,   too,   notwithstanding  a   bail   civil   service   and  much political  corruption.    In   1882, St.  Paul,  Minnesota,   purchased   her  water  Avorks for $510,000,  the total investment  to date representing about $4,000,000. She  I has reduced  the  rates very materially,  'and still  has  the  plant  more  than-half  paid for.    These arc only fair samples of  Avhat many other cities have done.

A. Qilker  s The Ftirnlsher  Hospital to be Enlarged.  The contraet 'for  tho  construction   of  the addition to the Kootenay Lake  general hospital has been awarder 1 to Toyc &  Gardiner, and the plumbing work in connection therewith to the LaAvrence Hardware  Company.     This    work  will   cost  $���1200.    The question of heating is under'  consideration, but the  contract has   not  yet been let, though it is estimated   that  this item will amount to at  least  $1000.  Towards this expenditure the committee  has    in     hand     only    $2500,   but     tlie  town    has    not    yet   been    thoroughly  canvassed, anrl no doubt   is   entertained  but that  once   the   work   is   begun,   the  needed money will be easily secured. The  contracts lot must be  completed by November loth.     The "main entrance to the  hospital will be on   the  ground   -floor  of  the now addition, and the whole is so designed that a  second   wing  can   at  any  future time be added to tlie new addition  now   being   made   without   in   any  way  interfering with the interior economy of  the hospital.     Tho  directors  anticipate  the necessity of such a further  addition  before  many  years  elapse.    The  rooms  on the ground floor will be nine feet high,  or    a   foot   higher  than   those  on   the  ground   floor  of   the   present   hospital,  and will consist of  a  spacious   reception"  room,   a   dining   room,   kitchen,   pantry,  laundry, boiler   room, etc.    On  the  first  floor are the operating  room   and  three  wards.    The dimensions of the latter are  14_ by 101, m by -10  and   _7_   by  15j.  Very   complete   sanitary  arnangoments  and two bathrooms are  included   in' the  design for this floor, where the rooms are  11 feet  4 inches   high.    There   are   five  wards on the second floor, IS  by 10J, 14i  by-lOi, 11J- by 10_,"i'l_ by 15, and   10  by  lOi.    The building will  be  a frame one  with a  stone  basement,  and  the  plans  Avere drawn byBwart & Carrie.  Vancouver hospital.   The remains will be  brought to Nelson for interment.  I!. J I.
