 M. LABORI SCORER HEAVILY OFF  Lying Witnesses.  Rennes, August 23.���Maitre Labori  anrl Madame Labori were present at the  opening of the Lyeee at (5.30 this morning. Tlie session began "with tho testimony of minor witnesses, includingcomptroller Roy anrl major Drovill. TJic  fourth witness, M. Peubrcuil, who described himself as a. private gentleman,  proved most entertaining, and. moreover,  gave Labori the (irst opportunity of  making a few points in favor of Dreyfus.  Duhrieul told a gossipy story of meeting Dreyfus at the house of an ncquaint-  �� �� ance in IS!)!, when Dreyfus was a lieutenant, and to seeing him eon versing  with a man described to the witness as a  German attache. This was tlie sum of  his testimony. Labori took Duhrieul in  hand and ascertained he only knew the  visitor was a German attache because lie  was told so, and did not know whether  he was a military or civil attache.  After the Dubrieiil testimony, captain  Valdant deposed tliat, at the end of May,  18!)(>, major Lauth came out of colonel  Picquart's room exclaiming: "Ah, ah!  never in this world!" When witness  asked what was the matter, the major  replied : " He wants me to certify that it  is the handwriting of so-and-so. I will  certify nothing."  The session of tho court-martial today was comparatively'uneventful. The  depositions were not productive-of any  really thrilling incidents. The systematical production of the flimsiest trash  which the prosecution deems profitable  to inflict on the judges, aud which the  latter accept as evidence, was proceeded/  with. Much of the ridiculous testimony  of the morning was devoted to an.  attempt to blast_Dreyfiis' private character, though When maitres Labori anrl  Demange had finished with the witnesses, their bubbles and tittle tattle  were badly pricked. Much of the time  was occupied in reading the testimony of  Esterha/.y and mademoiselle de Pays before the court of cassation, during which"  many of the audience left the court. M.  Labori again distinguished' himself  in laying bare the weak, points of  the evidence. He was less fierce  however, than yesterday, though quite  aggressive enough to arouse the latent  hostility of the. judges which showed itself in various little ways. M. Labori is  110 favorite either with-'major Carriere  and the latter makes no serious effort  to conceal his feelings 'towards, the  lawyer. : M.

The trial in my belief will last about  another twenty days."  Paims, August 23.���-The Figaro gives  an extract/ from a letter written just before he rlied, by signor Wossmaiin, the  Italian ambassador to Kranee, to whom  colonel I'aniz/.nrdi is said by general  Itoget to have addressed a. letter implicating Dreyfus. The . following is the  significant sentence: "I have only one  regret, and that; is to rlie without having  seen the innocence of the unfortunate  Dreyfus established."  Loniion, August 24.���Official permission  to appear at the Rennes court martial, if  cited, has been, according to the Rome correspondent of the Daily Mail, granted to  colonel Panixzardi, formerly Italian military attache in Paris, who recently denied in a communication to tho Figaro,  the statement of general Roget in his evidence at Rennes that Paniz/.ardi addressed a report to signor Rossman, formerly ambassador to France to the elfect  that colonel Schwaiv.koppen, formerly  German military attache in Paris had  relations with Dreyfus.  SITUATION IN THE TRANSVAAL  bore  little trace  of  r^rjyia^q^ji^rin-i^hlnij;  Lipton on Shamrock's Chances.  London, August 28.���Sir Thomas Lip-  "t'oii, iu an interview.--with, a reporter of  the Associated Press today, said : "I have  read the remarks of American yachting  experts, many of whom have seen the  Shamrock through their telescopes, but  while these good people know all about  yachts, they have not data upon which  to base their opinions, except patriotic  wishes. Any man knows the Shamrock  has done nothing yet beyond wearing  down the Britannia on time allowance,  and that pretty easily. So, to whittle  tho Shamrock's chances down to tihe luck  of heavy weather is beside the mark, for,  in my opinion, Fife has designed an all-  round yacht. There is nothing absurd in  the secrecy maintained. We have reasons  for it. It is quite true I asked the prince  of Wales to witness one of tho races.

TheocofifidrJh;t tones of thp general  liad by thSli subsided into tlie proverbial  =^stfl)rSmall^  ing had changed into the abashed air of  a school boy caught tolling \i lie. The  day proved certainly a poor ono for tlie*  general stajf.  Tavo good samples of the men put'up  to sully .Dreyfui' private character were  the third arid fourth witnesses. First  major dp Ghatelot 'repeated 'an alleged  conversation of Dreyfus regarding a lady  at whoso lioiuse Dreyfijs is alleged to have  gambled aiid Ipst money; biit When cross-  examined dn Chatejet's memory failed  him entirely, especially when asked the  name of the lady, tho street she  resided on, and the sum Dreyfus lost.  M, Deubrrsuil .sh.ovv.ed; oq-ually astounding frtrgetfuhidSH on essential points of  his evideiice concertiing Dreyfus' acquaintanceship with it, foreign attache,  and M. Deiniiiuge capped his successful  examination on these points by promising  to s'how that M. Deubreuil's record in the  courts is far from clear, with tlie result  that the witness left the stand badly discredited.  The correspondent of the Associated  Press talked this afternoon with M.  ".Tanres, the socialistic leader,, who with  M. Mathieu Dreyfus sees Maitre Labori  every day after tlie session and who is  acquainted with the entire tactics of the  defence. M. Jaures said: "I am convinced that Dreyfus will be acquitted.  Ho must be acquitted, for no new facts  have been brought up against him. The  generals, I believe, are going to make  their last stand on Bertillon's system,  which thoy intend to submit as proving^  Dreyfus guilty. Intelligent men laugh  at it, but it is very ingenious and has the  merit, iu the eyes of the generals, of being incomprehensible to an ordinary man  and thus calculated to impress him, if  supported by the puppets of the general  sto?

Cap^tow'X, August -23.���From an excellent unofficial sourer! of information it  is ascertained-that the substance of tho  Transvaal communication to the British  government in reply to the lattcr's demand is a concession of a nva years' (retroactive) franchise, a share in tlio elections of the president, anil an increase in  the representation of the gold fields, probably eight .additional seats, and a stipulation that all other questions are to be  submitted to an arbitrator, but not a foreign power, that Great Britain shall not  use the present interference as a precedent, and that the British government  shall relinquish all sovereignty rights.  Pretoria, August 2.'3.���Mi;. Conyng-  haino Green, British agent and charge  d'affaires at Pretoria today presented to  the government a further despatch from  the British secretary of state.for the colonies, Mr. Chamberlain, the nature of  which has not yet been divulged. The  presumption is that it is connected with'  the recent pour parlors. Tho members  of the executive are apparently more  cheerful.

It is said that on Sunday a train from Johannesburg was fired  on in Transvaal territory.

Paris, August 23.���A rumor was current in the various newspaper offices late  tliis evening that president Loubet had  been assassinated at Rambonlliet. Subsequently the report was officially declared untrue.  THE TOWNS ANDJHE DISTRICT  An East Kootenay Property.  I'oi'l. Slcjulo lYospoolor.  Four men are now employed in the development of the Brittle Silver group of  claims, which are situated on the head  waters of Sheep creek, over the divide  from Wild Horse creek. This work is to  asceitain if at depth the ore body gives  the same showing as was apparent on the  surface. The development sofar consistsof  an open cut of 15 feet in length from which  a tunnel will be driven to crosscut the  the ledge at a depth of fifty feet. On  the surface the lead was stripped across  the vein for six feet, and the indications  arc that it is fully twenty foot wide. At  present it has the appearance of being a,  true fissure, but this cannot be determined until the ledge is crosscut and both  walls shown up. It is the intention to find  out what there is in it, and as speedily  as, possible put the property on a shipping basis; in fact, the ore now being  taken out is of excellent quality, but no  ore is being taken out except such as is  encountered in the course of', develop7  ment. J. W. Arthur of Spokane is largely interested in the proposition, arid he is  of the opinion that ore for shipment  can be taken out much easier than is  usual on properties which show .so little  development. Mr. Arthur further states  that in shippi ng, the ore will have .to  come down Wild Horse creek and pass  , through Fort Steele.  Mining on the Upper Duncan.0  ; George N. Taylor has just returned  from a visit to the Upper Duncan river,  at a point 30 miles above Duncan City,  says the Rossland Miner. His mission  was to look after the Standard group,;  which is being operated by the Standard  Gold Mining company, and of the group  which is being operated by tlie Imperial  Gold Mines of British Columbia. These  properties lie alongside of each other and  tlie same vein runs through, each. In  speaking of the Standard group, Mr. Taylor said -there are two claims in the  group.    There  are seven .men  at work  yi^l^ljr^r^/a^ei^gcjifjJj  im!!g&  ^lfce'ofiHO-O^teiet)*  ''.loljl!^^  countered. A new tunnel has been commenced '150 loot below the shaft, and is  being driven on the ledge. It is in 22  feet, in ore.  Uncle Sam is Slow Pay.  Santiago dk Cuiia, August 23.���Five  men aro dead and ten wounded as the ro-  sult of a fight last night between  gendarmes and disappointed Cuban soldiers at Cucvitas, three miles from Santiago, where the payment of Cuban troops  is progressing. Five thousand Cubans  had gathered there to receive pay, anrl  after three days only 580 had been paid.  Thousands who harl been disappointed at  other points had come to Cucvitas as the  last place of payment in the proviuce.  The imperfect lists caused great dissatisfaction, and a rumor circulated yesterday  that the paymasters would leave today,  alarmed the men who, had not been  paid. They began to collect iu  .groups anrl to show their aniioyance.  Finally their threats became serious.  Captain Baliat, with twenty gendarmes,  were present to preserve, order among the  applicants, and the United States troops  protected colonel Moale, the officer having charge of the payments. Suddenly  captain Baliat, who was .mounted, was  surrounded by a mob, struck by stones  and bottles and shot in the arm. Hisnien  promptly fired, a volley into the mob,  three persons being instantly killed and  thirteen wounded, two of whom rlied this  ' '        ��� ��� i  morning. ��� Colonel Moale's guard promptly surrounded the -money/office,-but took  no part in the fighting. For a few minutes there was a lively conflict, carbines  and i machetes being used freely. Captain Biiliat was the ��� only gendarme  wounded. All the dead were colored soldiers. This morning payment was resumed under a heavy guard. .There were'  rumors that a force is .being-iorgjiiiized-'to'-  attack'-, the-.pay. office, but these are probably unfounded. c  Baseball  Games  Yesterday.

He was  determined, he said, that every man belonging to tho twenty regiments of volunteers now being recruited shall eat his  Christmas dinner in that country. - This  statement was brought out by a reference to the published report that two of  these regiments wore to be held in the  United States as a reserve force.

Baker Street, Nelson.  gone out to the shop   girls   of   the   great  city who arc without homes  and live   in  c-liciip lodgings and boarding houses.-      In  1lic.se  places tin.! accommodation is usually   comfort-loss and   often   wretched,  but  I,he poorly-paid girls can afford no better.  Air. Parker's   plan   is lo organi/o   a company to provide working girls with comfortable boarding-houses at a lower price  lor board anrl lodging than they now pay.  It   is   a   well-meant;   scheme,   anrl  does  credit to Mr. Parker's warm  heart.    Hut  it is very doubtful if the lot of the wage-  earners can be permanently improved by  such   methods.     The   chances  are   that,  even   if   this   particular    project  should  temporarily succeed, the ultimate   result  will lie injury to those whom it is intended   to   benefit.    To  supply  any   class of  wage-earners   with   cheaper   board   and  lodging is to reduce   the  cost  of   living.  The inevitable tendency of reduced   cost  of living is to bring about a reduction  in  wages. Those who live more cheaply than  others  employed   in    the  same   field   of  labor'can afford   to  work for less wages,  ill do so when pressure comes. This  is especially true of tlie unorganized classes   of  wage-earners.    For   these   reasons  women and girls have taken tho place of  "men in stores, factories, oil ices and schools,  and girls who can live at home and whose  expenses are small  arc taking the places  of   girls  .who' have   to   pay   for   their  board  and   lodging.    Wages   constantly  tend down  to  the  lowest romunoiatiou  for  Avhich  wage-earners   are   willing   to  work, and so long as there is competition  among the  workers the..minimum  wage  will   bo   proportioned   to the living   expenses of the successful competitors. The  best directed efforts-in   the cause of the  poorly-paid   classes   of   workers are not  efforts  to  reduce ' the living-expenses of  the workers, but efforts to increase thei  wages so they may increase their living  expenses. ���������'"J\ _".-._  ;    . . -   ;���'.  >-: c?-fZ:.&- <2^<��i:��2; ���sS.-'Si*  L&k  -/==������<��?  ^@ir  <����<��� <_?%s*te? <?�����_���:*_? *_?:<��?��: S^^ S^^ S?:<s:@:&-:��:& ^^^^^fe^Q^^^^^^.^^.'^^^^fe fe^fe?

Rochcfortcharged liim with boing bribed  by the so-ca.llod Dreyfus syndicate to fly  to London a.nd to admit, that lie was the  author of the bordereau.    He has always'  assumed   that   Dreyfus  is   guilty-of. the  charges laid against him.  ~. lien ri Iloeliofort d iseiisses the Drey fus  affair  as   follows:     The   proceedings   at  Ilcnnos, though merely formal, mark the.  ".opening  of  France's   trial    for  her   life.  The nation stands or  falls  with tlie decision of the guilt or innocence of Dreyfus.  Who is this central figure to whom.degenerate Frenchmen have paid homage in  the ancient Breton  town,   redolent with  memories  of llonan  and  Deiuenais?   A  self-confessed traitor you would rightly  call him.    The Arnold of France.  This man is not now and never-was a  Frenchman, no more than AValdorf As-  tor was an American. The latter is by  nature an Englishman,' the former is ,by  instinct a. Gorman.  Let  the 'Rennes court  martial decide  what it lnay, .all French ; generals know;  <|h JS^tf* )_$& rWS 'rM^irjp^^g^  Is now prepared to issuo Drafts ard Letters  of Credit on Sk,aguay, U. S., Atlin, B. C, and  Dawson City, Yulr^on District.  will throw snl'lirieiit light to demonstrate  that this man trallicked with our national .defence.  Rochofort then asserts that maudlin  sentiment, is playing a part iu favor of  Dreyfus. His wife ami children have  nothing to do with the fact of his guilt  or innocence'. Me continues: The shape  of a man's nose is of no consequence to  us. 'lint when any man or body of men,  whether .Jew or (ieutile, becomes by  shaii']) practices a bleeding sore upon tlie  body politic it is time to apply a cure.  Men -say 'there is an absence of motive  in the theory of Dreyfus's guilt. In answer���and 110 one knows- this better than  Max Norrleau, liis defender,���I say degenerate natures need 110 special incentive to  their peculiar crime.  In conclusion he says: If Dreyfus is  again condemned in .spite'of'a cabinet  pledged to liberate him, the matter must  enrl right there. "If he is aoequitted, we  are not prepared to bend the knee to the  German emperor or declare that members  of the first court-martial were fools or  knaves.  PUBLIC    OWNERSHIP    OF    UTILITIES.  This is a question of great importance  and it should' be fairly met and carefully  considered.-      .  Jf the work of 'furnishing light,Water  and transportation for the people can be  niorc economically and satisfactorily  conducted by means of private ownership  than by private corporations, advancing  eivili.J5at.iou- surely demands that the  plants be purchased and operated by  the municipal authorities.  This movement would dispense with  the expense anrl inconvenience incurred  by rival companies, and if a monopoly is  valnable thureis.no reason why the great  public may not receive the benefit, instead  of pouring the golden stream altogether  into.-.the pockets of a few-shareholders.-.-.'  It is true that the  political corruption  Gits plants it.ro also Operated \vith tnoic  nr less success by RriiKscls* Amsterdam,  and many cities in the" Rritish colonic'*.  41 fcjvery American city." says Dr. K. J.  James, " which has permitted computing  gas companies to lay pipes in the streets  has suffered through-the consolidation oi'  the companies, the capital ..having been  increased and consumers forced to pay  higher prices for their experience.  "Tho following cities have received  this treatment:. New Orleans, Louisiana.,  Providence, Rhode Island. Charleston,  South Carolina, Brooklyn, Memphis, Jersey City, St. Louis, Newbnrg, New York,  Chicago, Trenton, New Jersey, I'tullalo,  New York, ilarrisburg, Pennsylvania,  Detroit, Michigan. Lancaster, Pennsylvania, Albany, New York, Baltimore,  Maryland, New York City. Savannah,  Georgia, Poughkeopsio, New York, Pater-  son. New Jersey.  "Before consolidation the price of gas  in Now York City was 7H cents per thousand, but as soon as the six "companics  came together they raised the price $1.00  (per thousand, making it $1.75 per  thousand."  At present there arc twelve American  cities engaged in the manufacture of  their own gas. Tho list includes Wheeling, West Virginia, Alexandria,and Richmond, Virginia, Louisville, Kentucky and  Philadelphia.  "In Wheeling tho city., took charge of  the gas works in 1879, paying for them  by issue of bonds. These bonds have al!  been discharged out of the profit  011 gas, and the works are now free from  debt, and returning a substantial yearly  ^profit by selling the product ab 7;"5 cents  per. thousand feet, anrl this, too, in face  of the fact that they furnish the city  with $(5000 worth of gas every year free  of cost., ..'.-'.-.  "The city of Richmond, having niiuin-  ftietured' gas  siue'e  1852, so 1 Is  it  for  $ 1,  FULL LINE OF  and makes a large profit. This city has  secured the passage of an act by the legislature prohibiting a sale of its gas plant  except, liy a. vote of her people.  "Even Philadelphia, which has made  gas since 1811, although the nianaKoimM trims been bad in many respects, gas has,  almost without exception, been 75 cents  Cheaper than in New York."  A report by the New York state senate shows that the citizens of New York  are paying into the pockets of the private  gas companies $:j,000.000 por year more  than they would be compelled to pay  under municipal ownership and with good  management. The city rr01111c.il of New  York has decided to own and operate its  own gas plant and is working to that  end.  About seven hundred ami fifty gas  plants which are owned in the United  Slate's by private corporations pay their  stockholders over sjW.000,000   per  annum.  P. Bums c�� Co.

But the reports made at tlio end of  twouty-fivtj years sliOAved that tlie city  harl paid off More than half of the  cnorinous debt thus incurred, out of the  receipts of gas aloiio, and had also accumulated from the saine sousco a sinking fund to be applied to the balance of  tho indebtedness. While pouring this  groat volume into the treasury, the city  has at the same time reduced the price  of gas from $1.15 to 5<1 cents, and has increased tho product three fold. During  the year of 189(5, Glasgow made a profit  On hergas of $150,000.  The city of Limerick has owned its  own gas plant and manufactured gas for  thirty years. The workingmen receive  higher wages and work shorter hours,  while the consumer gets the gas at  cost.  On the ���continent we' find that in Germany alone .'530 cities are engaged in the  manufacture of: their own gas.

Tho burglars who are favoring Nolson  with their attention made their presence  i'elt again early yesterday morning,  breaking into two business places on  Jiaker street. The lOast End grocery  store, at the corner of JSakor and Hall  streets, was burglarized. The robbers  dirl not get much, limvovor, as there was  only about $.'���> in small change in the till.  The burglars were apparently annoyed  at this, for they carrier! oil' the till bodily,  though no goods were taken. They eY-  IVcted an entrance by unlocking the. back  door. Tlie Exchequer saloon, owned by  A. If. Clements and J tunes iS'eelands, was  also visited, and with better success front  the point of view of the robbers. They  took $.'50, which they found iu tho till and  marie oil'. They also appeared to have a  key which fitted the side door without  any difficulty.  Went Back on His Tender.  It is rumored that J. R.Gross of Wel-  land, Ontario, has finally decided not to  ]iurcha.se the city debentures. His tender was as follows:  I lief; to.submit, for Ihe consideration or your tininic;i-  iml council the following lender for (ho piirnliuso of S;m,-  (will of (luhciil.ni'ori of your city, licui-ing interest. ,-U, ||ns  pel1 cent,unil puyjiblo in l.woniy ye.-.rn from ihe ail.li day  of July next, iiuon (he (onus and conditions set. forth in  your nili'crl.iwmciit. in the Toronto Uloho. 1 will pay one  dolbir .and seven cent,'; for each dollar of the fnco value  of Iho debentures and will take the whole issue. This  oiler is subject, io the bylaw beins legal nnd regular.  There were eight other tenders submitted, ranging from !J9�� to 105. Tho debentures wore printed and signed, and  placed in .the .-Hank of.-Montreal, .where  they have been for a month awaiting Mr.  Gross's pleasure. A number of letters  and telegrams have passed between Mr.  Gross's lawyers in Toronto and the city  authorities. It is not likely tliat the debentures .will go a. begging, for former  issues, bearing the same rate of interest,  are held at 10.(5"; but it-is a trifle annoying to have a good deal fall through.
