 THE PRESS ASSOCIATION WINED  And Dined by the City.  Tlio members' of tlie Canadian Press  Association duly arrived in Nelson yesterday evening to the number of about  70. They Avere met at Robson liy members of the reception committee and light  refreshments Avere served them on the  ...���steamer. At Bonnington Falls the train  ! was stopped for a while to give the visitors an opportunity to visit the poAver  house there. On reaching Nelson a banquet AA'as in readiness for them at the  opera house, at Avhich the guests sat  down about 9 p. in. After discussing the  excellent vcoal provided by the management of the Waverloy restaurant, a number of speeches, all of them interesting  and many of them witty, Avere delivered  by the city's guests and their entertainers. Tho visitors one and all dilated  ., upon the Avay their eyes liad been  opened, during this trip, to the resources  of this province. They came, many of  them, expecting to find rough 'mining  camps built of log houses, and they found  cities replete with all the eotiA'euiences of  an eastern metropolis. They also spoke  Avarmly of the reception accorded them  in Nelson, Avliieh, they said, exceeded  anything they had received hitherto-on  their extended tour through the west.  After the toast of " The Queen," had  been drunk Avith the usual loyal honors,  colonel Matheson, M.P.P. for South Lanark, responded to the toast of the Dominion -parliaments. He', dwelt, upon the  rapidly groAving poAvers and responsibilities oi' provincial legislatures, Avliieh Avere  once considered little more important  than county councils, and urged the  necessity of sending to them the best  -'-men of the province. George 13. Graham,  ��� of the Broekvillc Recorder, followed and  pointed out the advantages of tlie Canadian' constitution, under. '.Avhi'ch the  Avishes of the people A\'oro speedily followed by congenial legislation or a change  of goArernincut. Mr. Dingman,.president  of the .Canadian Press Association, also  spoke.  D. .1. Beaton then proposed the healths  of the Canadian Press Association in a  feAv avcII chosen Avords, pointing out that  the factthat Montreal and Ontario journalists could meet British Columbia journalists in Nelson on such an occasion  emphasized the,-.effectual union of the  great land of Canada. The toast Avas  coupled -'.with the names of president  Dingman and Messrs. Gardiner, Burke,  Cooper, Burue and Picric.  ���"**:^$:  SUNDAY MORNING   AUGUST 27, 1899.

After a. brief adjournment the goA'crn-  ment commissary major CaiTiere called  upon captain Valerie of the artillery to  explain M. Bertillon's system and to  give an opinion on the subject. The captain said ho thought M. .Bertillon's evidence might be summarized in a sentence,  "The bordereau was doctored ami the  document fabricated by means of secret  writing or Avrittnn with a key, the key  word "interest" being found on the  "blotting pad letter" attributed to Dreyfus.  "Tho system," continued the captain,  '���Avas evidently devised to offer the  prisoner two means of escape. Either he  AA'ould deny being the author of the bordereau by pointing to the difference of  the handwriting, or he Avould contend  tliat it Avas a plot by shoAving the documents avci'c traced over liis Avriting.  However complicated the ingenuity of  the plan might appear," continued the  Avitness, "I propose to sIioav, first, that  the document Avas fabricated. Second,  that" it was fabricated by means of tlie  key, 'interest.' Third, thatthe documents  were 'written by the prisoner in the war  office, and contained Avoids Avritten by  means of the same key. Fourth, thatthe  forgery was intended to enable the piis-  oner to plead there AA'as a plot against  him. 'Fifth, that the prisoner alone could  be the writer." Captain Valeric then  'attempted to prove liis hypothesis', traversing tlie same ground as already  covered by M. Bertillon.  Then Dreyfus "was'asked the usual  question, .and.-'.the- prisoner pointed out  that the evidence of captain Valerie Avas  only a repetition of M. Bertillon's, and  in consequence- what he..replied to the  matter applied equally tooValcrio.      , -    -  Major Carriere asked the court to'.confront colonel Maurel and captain .Freystaetter. As Freystaetter, his breast glittering with decorations, adA'aneed Avitli a  firm step and an air of energy, he created  a good impression.

A meeting of the directors of the  Exchequer Milling Company Avas held  last night to consider tho following communications from superintendent Kelly:  k jolly's  resignation.  Owing to business affairs Avhich Avill  require my personal attention and Avill  not allow me tho necessary time to de-  A'ote to the best interests of your company, I beg leave to tender my resignation as superintendent of the Exchequer  mine. J might add that as I am a large  .shareholder in the company I Avould not  feel justified in doing this Avere it not  that aa'c haA'e already secured the services of a very reliable and competent  man, in whom I have every confidence,  and Avho, no doubt, Avill prove', of .great;  A'alno to the company.  Herewith I hand you a summary of tho  work,done under my management of the  Exchequer mine since about the 1st of  October, 189S, at Avhich time Ave arranged  to recommence work on the property.  SUPERINTENDENT KELLY'S  REPORT.  The mon th of October Avas devoted to  initialvpreparations,. such as .making  'trails, repairing cabins, blacksmith  shops, etc. ~ '  In the beginning of November actual  mining and developing commenced, and  up',to' date the work consists of tunneling, sinking and drifting for the puspose  of developing the main ore chute.  The first Avork done was to sink a  shaft 5 by 7 feet iu the clear and 75 feet  in depth on the lead. Then a tunnel of  the same dimensions was driven, about  50 f_et in length, Avhon a short crosscut  Avas made to'the north, discovering what  Avas supposed to be the same vein as  appeared in the shaft. I then made a  slight angle in the tunnel and struck the  vein in about 80 feet, upon Avhich.

Grand Forks was jubilating last night  and Nelson Avas in tho dumps. Nino ball  tossers from the capital of tho Kettle  RiA'er valley rolled nine base btill players  from Nelson in the mud, metaphorically  speaking. For a. time it looked as if the  game would have to bo postponed, as a  driy./.ling rain that commenced Friday  night continued all forenoon and avcII  into tho afternoon. Game Avas called,  hoAVOA'er, at .').45 with the visitors at the  bat. The first man Avas retired on three  strikes; the second hit a grounder to  shortstop and Avas thrown out at first;  and the third sent a high -fly to center  field, which Avas accepted by Phair. Nelson's fii'.st man at bat (Houston) hit the  lirst ball pitched him for two bags,  and got third on Avild fielding, Avhich AA'as  the result of the visitors trying to make'  a double play off Waters' grounder to  short. .The'third.man grounded to short1  and-was throAvn out at first. Partridge  popped up an infield fly and retired.  Eacritt made a safe hit and Houston  scored. Mills sent a high fly into left  field and Waters scored. The next man  retired the side Avith a grounder, leaving  two men on bases. Y  In tlio second innings Grand Forks  made one run and Nelson . did'-'likewise.:  Neither side scored in the third. In the  fourth, Avitli two men oti bases and���;.t'woi  men out, and the jnan "at the bat fanning'  the air, Houstoh dropped the third strike5  and threAV hi gh to first, and Grand Fo'rksgot:  a life. ; Tlie next man hit a low fly into:  right that the umpire declared, fair and:  the spectators foul, and Grand Forks  scored tAvo runs.

Anti-Dreyfusites Disagree^  JlMNKCiSj August 20,���When tho coui-t  mai'tial of captstin Dpeyfus began early  this morning in the Lycee M, Alplioiise  Bertillon, resinned his testimony interrupted yesterday by tlio adjourniuent of  the court for the day. In tliis case M.  Bertillon is testifying as a handwritbing  expert and gave his reasons for believing  Dreyfus to be the .author of tlie famous  bordereau upon Which the cross-examination depends to establish tlie charge  against the prisoner. M. Bertiiion atone  jiolut advanced alleged fresh proofs  against the prisoner, namely in Dreyfus'  papers seized at the Avar office and in  which the specialist said he found two  -Avords had been traced. His lecture delivered in funereal tones began, to pall on  the judges, avIio finally paid only the  most cursory attention to the examples  submitted.  .Referring to his paper Avhich Avas seized  ���at the war office, Dreyfus said it Avould  not be strange to see notes written by  officers altered. Referring to the so-  called "blotting-pad paper" .Dreyfus'said:  "This letter is perfectly genuine. Madame  Dreyfus can. testify to that point.

" Colonel Maurel, as he  spoke, was greatly cxcitexl and trembled.  The fingers of his light hand opened and  shut nervously. Captain Freystaetter  ���steadfastly regarded liis former colleague,  his cold and determined attitude having  an immense effect on the audience.. M.  Labori asked whether colonel Mauifjcort-  firnied tire explanations of captain Freystaetter and what the latter had said regarding colonel Maurel. The latter replied: "I answered with all frankness  and all truths I only listened to the reading of the documents very absently; i|t  Avas not interesting," :  Captain Freystaetter Avas then asked to  definitely give liis recollections concerning the production of secret documents  at the court martial of 18U1. His manner  was quiet and collected as he replied:  "Not only did I see them but I assert  colonel Maurel had them in his hands and  Avhat is.more I assert he made a voluntary commentary on each document as it  passed through his hands." Colonel  Maurel, very pale, vigorously protested  against the use of the word "commentary." "I could not have acted as captain  Freystaetter asserts," said Maurel.

There Avas no A'entilation except that artificially supplied by the air  compressor, but this A\'as satisfactory.  At that tiine,as ever since, it has been  lack of ventilation that made the temperature in the Ioaa'ci- AA'orkings uncomfortable at times. The big shaft is uoav connected with No. 4 at several levels, tho  connections being made at every third  level, the leA'ols being sixty feet apart.  At the bottom of the shaft the temperature is 85 degrees, The increase per 100  feet is very small,1 but in order to determine exactly Avhat tliis'increase is, a careful test of the temperature of the rock  has been under Avay for tho past year.  In order to make this test-holes haA'cbeen  drilled in the A\'all rock. In these slow-  registering thermometers''- haA'e been  placed, and the holes plugged up. In a  month from the time of sealing the holes  are opened and the temperature taken  and l-ecorded. This plan has been followed from the surfsiee to tho bottom of  the shaft, it being the purpose' of the  company to make a-thorough and trust-;  Avorthy test, so that it may be applied to  the future Avorking of the property at  greater depths than ever yet attained.  It is desired to ascertain correctly the  temperature of the different elevations  as Avell as of the rock strata. r,   v    .-������  The circulation-'of' air in the tnihe  groAA's steadily better as the levels, are  connected with the Avorkings by' cross-  en ts."

Get Fighting Mad Over Politics.  Reports front Kaslo are amusing in the  extreme. Within a week four of the  most prominent men in the tOAVti have  engaged in rough-and-tumble scraps, all  over poll tics. One fight was betAveen two  men, both J. P.s and old enough to be  grandfathers; and the other was betAveen  two men who if they keep on fighting  never will Ha'c to lie grandfathers. Nelson Avas supposed to be tlie storm-con tor  in all questions political, but Kaslo must  be awarded that honor. Here in Nelson  the head push of the Mine Managers'  Combine and the head push of the Semlin government "smile" together at The  Oflice, and never discuss politics Avhen  they are discussing Collinses and gin fizzes at the I'hair or the Hume.  . ^-liiy-lias-r^pAyet; *tp'*^^ro^ri4t^h^S;i  ^t^fcC^tlt^l^  ;4ij|ii|i taiuingV '^nl^fetlet;; ^td^f l^tjShlnd^t  Mtii  ^tv^!^i)^T^���tffi��he��s^  ^pj|tte|ie^un'tS^iln^  ���Jf.^sfSl  �� wini x'jf.���sjtisu>v-��.j.*ii-ft.u:r^i)L.-���ii��^y-i&vAi��^U>Jl;;-.y*>".<������*  ^he^dkwnte ^itiri^^i_��it^il^Stod:M"'  i lun>r^W!npn^;G^^ty^^'|;^^    _ , *y b^i^^al^^-^M^ity'i  prop^3sitioi^wliielj7i|||!^in:p^a^^  refused eA'cn to heal:.,  -   .. ^bJ^vv"!^!

Iron Avorkors ai'e generally .1 ��11 y and  are fond of sport.

Heaters in  the Fust" earn $130 a month.    Piiddlors,  by hard work, can make $100 a month.  A veteran  ironworker says:    "Of course  Ave   are  all  glad  for  the  present  good  showing  in  the  iron business.    Wo are  also glad for the AA-ork and the present  AA'.ages.
