 HORSE THIEF AND OTHER CREEK  Claims Showing Up Well.  F. M. Chsul bourn * ore purchaser for the  Hall Mines smelter,  returned   yesterday  from a, bii.sinc.ss trip through East Kootenay iu the interests of the smelter.    He  says that there is considerable movement  and excitement in properties in the AVin-  dermere district.    A great deal of development work is being done and the majority  of  claims  are  showing  good   returns.    The   principal   interest  is   being  taken  in   properties on Toby creek and  its tributaries,  North and  South Forks,  and Horse Thief creek and its tributaries,  anil Boulder and  Law crocks.    Over one  thousand locations have boon recorded at  the   Windermere   office  this  year.    The  mines   are    situated     from    twenty   to  twenty-live   miles  up   Toby  creek  and  Horse Thief creek from Windermere, but  as yet only  small   shipments   have   boon  made   from   the Dclpliinc and Swansea,.  Other claims   have  high-grade  shipping  ore on the dump  and  arc only awaiting  transportation   facilities.    It  is believed  that the  Great Northern   railway   will  build a branch lino over the divide from  Argonta  and   down   Toby  creek, which  will be a great boon to the district.    The  people are also looking to the Canadian  Pacific  to  build a  line3to   Windermere  from Fort Steele.    The  ore  is  a   high-  grade lead carrying   grey   copper.    The  Mackintosh, syndicate   has   bonded   the  lied Lion and Silver Thread  claims,   between   Law  and   McDonald  creeks,   for  $100,000,  which,   judging   from   .surface'  showings, will prove a bonanza.    Tho future for Windermere district was never  so promising.     Four townsiles, Windermere, Athelmar, Petcrboro and Johnston,  have been laid out and lots in all of them  arc selling rapidly.  Mineral Exhibit For Paris.  The preliminary "shipment of mineral  specimens for the Paris exhibition is being prepared, as is attested by the large  boxes now outside the Bank of Montreal  wliich contain the samples donated by  that institution. The specimens collected are being boxed by the Nelson Saw  <fc Planing Mills by the directions'of W.  F. Robertson, provincial mineralogist.  The samples collected in the Nelson and  Goat River mining division aggregate, so  far, iii the neighborhoood of four tons,  but of this the Bank of Montreal collection, wliich includes many Slocan samples,  forms a large part.

If this is true���and every  Canadian has reason to hope that it is ���  it almost justifies the extravagance of  the eulogies of Mr. Mackintosh uttered at  the recent memorable banquet in his  honor at Rossland, where one of the  speakers styled him "the Cecil Rhodes of  the Dominion."

Victoria, August IS.���Reid lias retired  from the field in New Westminster, and  Henderson's election will be unopposed.  Tho reason is that ambitious politicians  of the Royal City believe that tlie collapse of the Semlin government is close  at hand, and none of Henderson's influential enemies will help a rival to secure a  claim on the seat for -which all -will  scramble at the general election.  MacPhcrson of Vancouver wished to  resign his seat and contest Westminster  as champion of Martin's- cause, but the  c uicus -a'"-' Van'-ouvcr dissuaded him in  the ground that the only result of his  success in New Westminster would be the  defeat of the government, while his vote  in the house will secure this in a simpler'-  way. MacPhcrson is 'determined to stand  by Martin in wrecking the government.  Martin announces today that upon the  meeting of the legislature he will formally press his charge against Cotton for  falsifying the records of the0 executive  council.  Semlin .may not meet the house in view  of the certainty of his defeat, but if he  does his executioner .may be Higgins  rather than Martin, and it is not at all  ^ouo|jl?isy.pinit iarge^ HS.-\v^l|i"Kj^:tJ:fOiri"se'lye^"���  -?a;u-9.i't��is";tb -bo i^gr��6ttell��' Aha* dQ'an&hf s  -V^;^;f5#t:f'!iff��-'i&"n��*o:ut? to.n |jsi4��Ui^tfi,^\o^i:i3jiiib.'  b BwT^-eif���Mie:inis.'��jSxsf34!^i^' nlay^eAt^o��.1iite> %iv'  - "46] i&Va-liiJj 'he \y ills p^ababjy ���gO t,i\ Rosslaiid:  ^"t']'li^r%y^inVig>fe 'lo��K lifterrthc!

Rkxnrs, August IS.���When the Dreyfus trial was resumed in the lycee at  7:3:5 this morning, colonel Picquart was  called to the witness stand and continued the deposition which was interrupted  yesterday by the adjournment. Speaking of the letters of which M. Bertillon  affirms he saw photographs iu May, 1S00,  and made, a note of them, tho colonel  contended the letters Avere not written  on that date. Tho conflicting testimony  of Picquart and Bertillon on this point  had been used to discredit the former's  evidence. Colonel Picquart continuing  said du Paty de Clam, on seeing the writing, forthwith decided it was that of  Mathieu Dreyfus, the brother of captain  Dreyfus.  The witness  continuing  said;     "You  know he maintained that the bordereau  is the joint work of Alfred and  Mathieu  Dreyfus."    M. Bertillon said:     "That is  the -writing of the  bordereau."    M. Bertillon tried to discover where I had obtained the handwriting, but tlie only information   I  imparted   was   that  it was  current.    At M. Bertillon's request J  loft  the photographs with him.    Whcie he returned them he said  he adhered   fco  his  opinion and earnestly asked  to  sec   the  original, when I saw beyond a doubt that  the handwiiting of the bordereau  was  Esterha/.y's     and      seeing     that     the  ���documents'" mentioned    therein    might  have     been     supplied     by    Estcrha/y  that the words "I am going to the manoeuvres"  could  perfectly well  apply to  Esterhazy; and that Esterhazy had secretaries at his disposal to copy a document  so voluminous as the firing manual, T resolved to consult the secret dossier to see  Avhat part of the treachery might  be ascribed to Dreyfus, and  to assure .myself  whether the dossier contained 0anytiling  indicating  Esterha/.y.    I frankly admit  I was stupefied on reading the secret dossier.    I expected to find matters of gravity therein, and found, in short, nothing  but a'document .which might apply just  as -much to Esterhazy as to  Dreyfus, an  tiTiVnnptoitei^ JJav-  nguoLifand * doauiileiitfwl��e>.��itj�����^eeinod  at once left the room," added the witness.  "That is what occurred. I know my  account of this is disputed, but I positively swear it."  The colonel next described his intentions with regard to Rsterhazy which  generals Gon/. and de Boisdeffre had forbidden him to carry out. !le attached  particular importance to this point as it  contained a Hue to subsequent occurences. Later the witness said that while  du Paty <le Chun evidently acted strongly in disguising himself with n false beard  and blue spectacles, perhaps he was  n.uthori/.ed to do so. In his opinion the  only event of importance in the Dreyfus  affair since tho discovery of the bordereau w;is the Henry forgery perpetrated  October .'31 st. 1 SOfi.  Shortly before Henry perpetrated the  I'ovgcvy, an agent named Guenee, Henry's  right hand man, prepared a report declaring M. Castelin (Republican revisionist deputy for the Laon division of Ais-  ne) was about to play the hand of the  Dreyfus family by unmasking in the  chamber of deputies the accomplices,  thus having the affair reopened. Dealing with the mission to Tunis which Pic-  ncighborhood  of   Belfort,"    replied  tho  witness.   "Finding ourselves on the point  of being discovered,  wo  naturally  took  measures to avoid it.    That  is  why  Ga  lanti was sent to Switzerland."  "Then you wrote letters," said Roget.  "And J add that colonel Henry aviis not  concerned in this affair, he was scut to  Belfort against his will by colonel  Picquart."  The witness acknoAvlcdgcd writing letters but wanted to know their text. lie  said he Avould like to sec them so that he  could be more precise.  "You have seen," he said, "how much  falsehood there has been in this affair."  In replying to further questions Picquart admitted sending documents to  Belfort for the use of the Qucnnilli case,  "but," Picquart added, "they were  handed to the public prosecutor."

I said nothing more until the return of  general Gouz, September 15th. At that  time Esterha.zy was at the .'great manoeuvres-.  Next the witness dwelt on tho rumors  in September, 189(5 of tlie project of replacing Dreyfus by ii inan-of-straw and  the discovery of tlie forged letter supposed to be connected Avith the same project.  At about the same time the campaign for  and agaihgt Dreyfus was Started by the  ���newspapers;  At this stage colonel Picquart, avIio  had been speaking for four and a half  hours-, was visibly distressed. Ho had  occasional attacks of coughing, but managed to continue,, colonel Jonaust not  shOAving any inclination to suspend the  Session of the court in order to give him  tlie needed rest. The Avitness then  turned to the newspaper--, attacks on  Dreyfus, saying that the information regarding the bordereau contained in them  couA'ineed him that they had been inspired by some one closely connected  with the Dreyfus affair. Thoy could not  be attributed to the Dreyfus family,  Avhile they contained expressions familiar  ito du Paty do Clam, AA'hom it Avould be  interesting to hear on the subject. Referring to his interview Avith general  Gonz on September 1st Picquart said,  "Avhen I asked for permission to continue  the iiiA'estigation, insisting upon the danger of allowing the Dreyfus family to  proceed Avith their investigation alone,  the general replied that it Avas impossible  to reopen the affair. ' if you say nothing  nobody will knOAv.' "  General, I  replied  firmly, "What  you  tell me is  abominable.    I  do  not. know  what I shall do, but, I  won't carry  this j  secret with me.".   (Great sensation.),  "L)  quart said ought to have been   entrusted  to a commissary of police, tho Avitness declared  it  aviis  then that Henry, abandoning his underhand intrigues, began a  campaign   of open   persecution.     Henry  wrote   to the  Avitness   accusing  him  of  communicating information to the press,  disclosing   tho  contents  of secret  documents and Avibh  attempting  to  suborn  officers on connection Avith the petit bleu,  ft AViis then that Picquart learned of  the  existence of forged secret documents directed against him and   foresaw his  own  r  in if the Dreyfus affair was  reopened,  and to safeguard himself ho entrusted to  ii  lawyer friend   a certain   letter  from  general Gonz, at the same time acquainting   the   lawyer   with   what   he   knew  of     Estcrhazy,     and      instructed     the  lawyer     how    he     should     intervene.  "If      the      occasion      demanded      it."  when Picquiirt's furlough was  due,  general Leclerc commanding in  Tunis, was  ordered to send Picquart to the  frontier  of Tripoli. , Leclerc .commented  to the  Avitness on this abnormal order and Picquart confided to the general the reasons  for it and his belief in- the  innocence of  Dreyfus.       - ,        _  1 PiequartOicre created a sensation by  incidentally remarking that the judges in  JS01 Avere shamefully deceived in having  the document containing the Avords  "cctte canaille de D-' communicated to  them. Witness then bitterly recited details of the various  machinations Avith the view of incriminating him and instigated - by Henry.  Esterhazy and Paty de Clam. Colonel  Jonaust. president of tho court, having  asked for explanations on certain points,  Picquart said : " ff I tell you all this, gentlemen, it is to shoAv what must have  been the mental attitude toward me of  ihe members of the court-martial which  tried Esterhazy."  (Murmurs of assent).  The Avitness said he regretted that he  had not been given an opportunity to  contradict his accusers at that court  martial, "f have almost finished my  task," added Picquart, " but I ask permission to refer to the Avay the bordereau  came to the Avar office. I have doubts in  regard to the persons Avho brought the  -bordereau;���T wo-qu i tc���d i H oreiTt"]person's'  could certainly have delivered the bordereau in liSOl. But if an intelligent person had delivered it he Avould certainly  have insisted on the value of the contents." Generals Roget and Morcicr  having intimated a desire to i-peak, colonel Jonaust asked Dreyfus if he had anything to say and the prisoner replied in  the negative.  General lloget then mounted the platform and asked colonel Picquart for explanations regarding the Qucnnilli affair.  Colonel Picquart .--aid Hogct attacked me  this morning in regard to my speech for  the prosecution on tho subject of the  Qucnnilli case.  lie said he was not present/ when the  case aviis in progress. He asked colonel  Picquart if he denied that he wrote captain Mareeha! an order to connect him  with Galanti, that he wrote to the public prosecutor, enclosing documents, and  that he Avrote to the public pi'oseeutor a  second, time, July 15th. " If he denies  this I ask the court to send for Mareehal  and tlie dossier in the Qiiennilli affair."  Colonel Picquai-t replied that there was  no need to threaten to produce the dossier in-order to make hht> reply, lie  added: "1 did not say t Avas absent during the Queunilliafi'air, I said I AA'as absent  part of the time and that painful duties  did not permit mo to participate iu it as  1, Avould otherwise have done.  '���Did yon Avrite these letters?" asked  Jonaust.  "Yes," replied Picquart. "I remember  writing letters in the case though I do  not remember exactly their terms or  dates." - -  Colonel   Jonaust  then said:   "General  Roget asked if you deny you.wrote a fet?  ���tor-sending Galanti. to Switzerland."    :  ;,  "Galanti AA'as sin agent who gave :us in-  forniation about the: Italian forts, in ; the  LAND COMPANY WOULO HOG IT  Over the Reservoir Question.

The development of these mines has  been going on steadily for three years,  but until the advent of the Ci-oav's Nest  Piiss railway, the cost of transporting tho  ore to tho smelter was considered too  great a waste of money, and consequently  no attempt has been made to make a  showing of the mines' capability.  Over 7000 tons, hoAvcver, Avere  shipped to the Great Falls smelter, Montana (22 miles by wagon road, 100 miles  by ri\-cr and 480 miles by rail), Avhich,  according, to the smelter returns in possession of the company, yielded an iiA'cr-  age gross A'alue of $(K).  The    lode    Avas  located   iu   1S02,   and  since that time has been  so developed as  to expose one of the largest bodies of silver-bearing galena ore  yet  uncovered iir  the province.  Tho plan sJioavs an ova body having a  length of 450 feet, and .-in extreme Avidth  of 00 feet. Although ore is known to exist outside of these limits, Avith the exception of Avhat is- called " Ncav Discovery," none of'it has entered into the calculations from Avhich -.the amouutof ore' "  in sight is determined.  The   quantity of  ore  blocked .out  in  the,mine" ready   for  extraction amounts  to 23,500 .tons,1 the ave'-age  contents, of  which per touTaro -''JlTf ounces - of 'Silvbr'"  and 52.4 per cent of loiwl.  ' At this rate .the  ore in  sight  has   a  gross  Aralue  of $01.93  per ton, equal, to  ..# 1,158,355; which, after deduction of cost "  of   mining,    transportation,    duty    and  treatment, Avill yield a net profit per ton  of $22.21, or a  grand   total of ~$521,935,  available for dividends.    This will.enable  the company to pay ] per cent per month  on $1,300,000, the present-'issued capital,'  for-a period of ovei- three years from orb    -  in sight alone.  Arrangements have-been made Avith  tjie Canadian Pacific railway to construct a branch line to the mines,avhich  will probably be completed by October.  The company Avill contribute '$50,000  towards the cost; but this- amount will  be refunded by a rebate of 33/. per cent" ^  of all charges on all freight going o\'er  the line until the $50,000 is fully repaid,  Avhen the railway company will own the  branch.  The Old Country Idea.  N^y Denver j.edKC.  It is a noticeable! fact that Ihe mine  managers in this district and in Xelson  who are taking the most active part in  the present effort to cut down the wage  scale for .miners are representatives of  largo English concerns. The cry from  across the Avater to managers here has  over been, "wages too high.." It is but  natural for tho managers to attempt to  carry out the Avishcs of their directors,  but they should remember that the mining region of British Columbia, at. the  present stage of development, sit least, is  a poor field for the inculcation of the old  country idea that money is lord and master over all.  Manitoba Pioneer Dead.  Mudicixh Hat, August 1,8..���There  died at Medicine Hat today Mr. I).

Municipal ownership of public franchises pays the City of Manchester well.  That Mnglish municipality has by the  operation of its own immense gas works  reaped a profit of ��71,052 in respect of  last year's operations, Avhilst producing  and selling good ga.-5 vary cheaply to a  consuming population of over (500,000.  Of this profit. C51,000. or Over $247,000,  have been applied in reduction of city  taxes. Mancheslcr also makes large  yearly profits by owning ami working  its own public markets, electric light ami  wtitor-pouer services, whilst a municipal  Ava tec-works service, which cost over  C 1,000.000. supplies the purest water in  abundance at very low rates, which yet  hiillicc to make the undertaking pay its  way. Manchester also owns and gains a  goodly profit rental out of the local  tramway lines and Avill, shortly acquire  find work its own triinicac .service by  electricity on the trolley system,  the Burglar Was Caught.  OWRX SoiTxo,   Ontario,  August   IS.���  A daring burglary aviis attempted  here  yesterday by  Robert Scott, tinsmith  of  Chars worth.    He effected an- entrance into the house of John   Lemon  through  a  back window.

The  burglar  closed  the  door from  the inside Avhen he found himself discovered and prevented it from being opened.-  Then after a while he suddenly burst it  (men and threw himself on the  members  of the family outside,fighting desperately,  but was finally beaten doAvn and captured.    On  him Avas   found   Lemon's  gold  watch and pocket book containing $107.  Scott is a member of a very respectable  1 family. r.ME TRITVUNE:  N HI,SON, ]1C.  SATU]}]>AY, A.UCJUST 10,  1890.

Jnger-  soll was delighted with the globe. lie  examined it closely and turned it round  and round. "It's just what I wanted,"  he said; "who made it?" "Who made it?"  repeated Beecher; "who made this globe?  Oh, nobody, colonel, it just happened!"  C.'S. Batterman, one of the best-known  mining men in the Rocky Mountain  states, was on tlie stand as an expert in  an important mining case iii Nevada, and  was under cross-examination by a rather  young and "smart" attorney. The questions related to the form that the ore was  found in, generally described tis "'kidney  lumps." "Now, Mr. Batterman," said the  attorney, "how large are these lumps���  you say they tire oblong���tiro they as  iong as my head?" "Yes," replied Mr.  Batterman, "but not so thick." The attorney subsided, and even the judge  could not help smiling.  Judge Martin Grover of Troy, New  York, was at one time approached by a  young citizen who wished to be nominated to the state assembly. The shrewd  old judge had certain doubts about him,  which he expressed somewhat freely, and  yet he" was willing to afford him it trial.  He  therefore addressed  the aspirant in  ��� this way: ".Young man.', if you wiil "give  me your word that you'woii!fcsfceal wlieuir  you get torAlbany,  I'll see what kin bo  done about sendin' you there."    "Judge  0rover," replied the young man, drawing  *himself  up with great  dignity/ "I go to  Albany unpledged, or T don't goat all."  An Australian, coming up on a recent  steamer, fell in with two sharpers who  led him into many wagers. They were so  invariably successful that he-became suspicious that they were "fixing" the bets,-  but each new proposition was so tempting that he could not resist it. At last,  as they approached the Golden Gate, he  counted up the remnants of his roll.  "Gentlemen," he said to them, "J find I  have just twenty-two dollars in American money left. Now, 1 will ri��k it all jf  you will lot me name this last bet." The  others were curious, and knowing they  could not lose much, consented, and asked what his proposition was. "Tt is this,"  he said; "I'll bet you twenty-two dollars  that I can yell louder than the ship's  steam whistle. Of course, I'll lose," he  added, "buti by jingo, 1 know the whistle  "latu'rbe^fixgd:"^^  Mr, X)������, of Boston, visiting in one of  tho small' towns of western Massachusetts, was taking a spih shortly after his  arrival, When he was run down (as he  claimed) by a negro and knocked oil' his  bicycle. When he got Oh his feet 'again  he was so tljigry that he picked up ji  stouo and fc'hi:c3\y it With .accurate aiin at  tlie colored 1111111 ami brother. This resulted in his arrest and conviction in tlie  local court of justice. "I will lino you  five dollars,1' sa;fd tlie judge; "have yon  anything fro say?" "Nothing/' i-cplied  D���-���, uumolHficd, "except that T wish I  had killed this fellow." "that remark  will cost you five dollars more," rejoined  his hoijoi-. ft -'S temper was nob improved by tliis fresh dispensation of justice. ''Conversation' seems to conic high  iii this court," ho observed. "Five dollars for contempt," promptly responded  the bench; "have you ahything more to  say?" "I think not," ansAvered the defendant: "you liave the advantage of mo  in repartee." Payment of the fine closed  the case.  The Hon. William Wortliam, long state  treasurer of Texas, was in a New York  jewelry store one day, when lie noticed a  show-case filled with splendid jeweled revolvers with silver and gold grips and  chased barrels, having precious stones set  into the butts. "Lemme see one of those  guns." he said to the clerk. "Which one,  sir?" "The gold one with the big ruby  in tlie handle." The clerk took it from  tlie case. It was marked three hundred  dollars, and it looked worth even more.  The Texan took it tenderly iu both hands  and held it admiringly up to the light..  Then drawing himself up to his full  height, which was six feet and a half, he  rested the revolver-barrel upon hisi'.Jeft  elbow, crooked for the purpose, and looked over the sights down the long store.  Those persons who saw him involuntarily dodged. "Say," said Mr. Worthain,  with quiet but intense enthusiasm, as he  returned the weapon, "if I was to wear  that gun down in my state the people  would be falling down on-their knees  bogging to be killed with it."  "When I was iu Mexico last year," relates a consulting engineer, "I was one of  a party, of foreigners invited to take a  trip at the company's expense over a certain railroad.    The first day of the journey I was sitting smoking on the  rear  platform of the observation-car while we  stopped to take water at a lonely station  Just as the train was pulling out, a��disreputable individual swung on the bumper and started to climb over the railing.  In costume he resembled one of Buffalo  Bill's   'greaser',  cow-punchers,   only   he  looked dirtier and was ragged.    I sized  him up for a Mexican tramp, and I blocked  his  way.    He hung on  the   railing,  swearing in Spanish at me, and, though I  couldn't get get the drift of his remarks,  fused the worst Spanish words'I knew  in addressing him.    The train kept gathering  speed,  and    I  don't  know    what  would have happened if another "man of  the ,party hadn't come out on the platform and asked  what was the trouble.  'I'm keeping this trainp from stealing a  ride,'  I   explained.     'Stealing   .nothing,'.'  said he; 'you're fighting with the brake-  man.'    Nowadays I don't judge a man by  his uniform. ���   . ��� ..��� ���.-  Smoke...  ROYAL SEAL AND  KOOTENAY BELLE  CIGARS   UNION   MADE  Kootenay Cigar Manfg. Co.  NeKon, Rrlti-.li Columbia.
