 if--- t-*-^���-�����~^--_n iti-i_t _THa>n^marrrtTg;fi  M. BERTILLON'S CRAZY SYSTEM  Excites Derision.  Rennns, August 25.���The court martial  of Dreyfus opened at 0:30 t.Iiis morning  Avithout extraordinary incident. Tlio  clerk of the court read a medical certificate signed by tAvo doctors Avhose names  wove unknoAvn to the audience, declaring  it impossible forcolonel duPatydoClani to  leave his bed to come to Rennes and  testify.  M. Bertillon  AA'as called   as   the next  witness.     He   woro   a   dark   bluo   coat  and.    to     the      general      surprise     of  the   audience    entered  the court   room  without a single paper.     But tlie astonishment Avas short-lived,  the lirst words  of Bertillon lining  a  request  to  permit  his diagrams anrl papers  to  be  brought  in.     The request being granted Bertillon  retired for a  moment.    He  returned   at  the   head   of   a  squad   com posed   of  an  infantry sergeant and   four privates,  all  staggering under the Aveight of immense,  leather satchels bulging with documents,  charts,    etc.,     Avhich     they     deposited.  0ou       tlio       stage       as      a      roar      of  laughter    echoed    through    the    court.  Bertillon   commenced   his   deposition   at  8.30 a. m.    it occupied the  whole session  and  Avill   perhaps occupy-the. Avhole of  tomorroAv's   session.       Bertillon,   whom  Dreyfusitcs   describe   as  "a   dangerous  maniac," spent the three remaining hours  of the  session  explaining  the  unintelligible terms of his " infallible system "of  proving Dreyfus Avas the authors of the  bordereau.    After M. Bertillon had concluded  the  lirst  instalment of   his so-  called demonstration of theguiltof captain  Dreyfus a prominent Dreyfusard referred  to him as "the fin-de-sioclo  Cagliostro."  Dreyfusards  refuse    to    regard  him  as,  anything but the prince of quacks. They  cover liis remarks Avith ridicule and  protest that the admission   of  his  fantastic  theories  as    evidence   before  the  court  martial  is a disgrace to Prance.    "C'est  line honte" Avas the remark heard on  all  sides  Avhen   the  session  closed  and the  audience, mainly made up of Dreyfiisards,  AA'as being pressed out by the gendarmes,  avIio  clear  the  court  room  as   soon  as  court adjourns.    Nevertheless, even   tho  Dreyfusards do not deceive themselves as  to the effect of JVI. Bertillon's ��� testimony,  or " Demonstrations " may have upon the  judges, avIio, they fear, Avill be gulled  by  what the Dreyfusards consider spurious.  All the judges haA'e  passed through  the  ecole polytechique, the highest school of  science in France, and they are thus pre-  SATURDAY MORMNG, AUGUST 2G,  1899.

It is  very likely, Mr. Swouey says, that both  the Gcuussec and the Beaver Avill enter,  as the conditions of tho races, which have  not yet been fully developed, will include  their class. The series of races are to be  sailed in American Avaters, and will probably take place off the port of Charlotte.  GRAND FORKS BALLTOSSERS WILL  Try to Humble Nelson's Pride Today.  The Grand Forks team, Avhich plays  Nelson 'today, is one of the best teams in  Southern British Columbia. They haA'e  played eight matches, and aa'oii them all  except that against Nelso n on July 1 9th.  The teams they beat include Nortliport  and Rossland. The Nolson aggregation  has played six games, of which they Avon  five. They lost one against Rossland,  but beat them in the return match on  July 1st. The Grand Forks team has  been strengthened since the last match,  and a close game is expected. The game  will begin at 3 o'clock. The teams are  composed as follows:  Grand Forks���Davy c, Fleming p, Russell J b. Sullivan 2b, E. Davy 3b, Fitch ss,  Welch If, Connors cf, DeRush rf, and  Foley spare man.  Nelson���Waters c, Rockenfield p, Partridge }h~, Eaeritt 2b, Campbell 3b, Houston ss, S. Neelands If, Phair cf, Moore rf,  and Smith aud HaAvkins spare men.  " Billy " Connors, one of the best ball  players in Spokane, is Avith the Grand  Forks team, and will no doubt catch in  the game today. Nelson brought  " Billy" up from Spokane in -1895 to help  out in a game Avith Rossland, but the  Rossland team kicked and Avould not let  him play. He is a clean ball player and  .will-show our boys Iioav to play the position of catcher.  ...; .;JNELSpN.,-i;,;,.,/,.i  A marker  has  been  engaged for the  rifle shooting this afternoon, and by next  Saturday the ne\^^  yrblepTt/Allah'fl^ifefolrd? j\fe  iiv: of; #>jiii��M:CMar^  ' Vslio^yissi-ft^  ^uin'ohC^^  filjfe.iitv^as^uiviicda^vte  .^x&dfespaee^^  " �� |iiii^|;li^c^viflsiBJj-^f WeSjTii^jAd;obt;iti"��^  {i   ���jVb��s;^yibi'f:"';<?'f. * .^^Iti'^^jSj^11'^   nienj-/  r/"*'fti$)ie$V%^'^  i . -���wi:rtiil|f �� Avhif^p;^l&y; Aybu^d/^rpdiiee- in/  3   "-c^urfe���{neM^wfej3loi^ 'TIiiS  ; ��� .c^re'^^ Press iii-  qiiirfecl as to1 this" ;iti, doinpeteiifr $r"eyfijsr  /tfar^VrJi^i^ . ^liejw&s as"-  sui'ed that the stilbteiiieht Avas" erroneous,   j.mtTjwna also told_that ���__the���defetice__1'q_.  ;��� ble>iS}if nibhtlis^oldjisbij  wCek  tended/ iii Ihe" event of captain Dreyfus  being re-coridenined', to ask the German  grtv_rii,infi-eii't to communicate these documents, proving liis innocence, aiid that  they had reason to believe such a request  Avould be granted.

The importation  of mine A\'orkers for  the silver-lead mines of the Coeur d'Alenes  lias   resulted   in  making  that   country  worse off than Avhen  under the rule of  tho  miners'  unions.    According   to the  Wallace Tribune, e\'idence is not wanting  to sustain the assertion that the troubles  in the  Coeur d'Alene  mining district is  not entirely one-sided.   The fact of the  matter is there is  not a single mine in  tho Cami' d'Alenes that has pairl one day"  of profit since the neAV men Avore  put to  Avork, and some of them have fallen far  short of paying  even running  expenses,  and operations are  carried  on  Avith unusual friction aud irritation.    Mine managers anrl bosses look  worn  and  forlorn  and the situation is anything  but  pleasant to them.   To successhilly operate the  Coeur d'Alene mines requires  a class of  skill acquired only through  long  experience iii  them, and  Avhile  the  new men  brought here are  doubtless  doing  their  best and making  every reasonable effort  to satisfy  their employers, it  Ls reasonably certain that they  are not succeed- '  ing and ah  undercurrent .of dissatisfacr  tion is growing bu both sides;'   Inside advices  say  that about September 1st the  permit proclamation Avill be reeihded and >  the mine operators will be given free lati-"  tude  to  employ  Avhom  they please.   If  this is done it will  open  the';'way for the :  re-employment of a  large number of the  old force and .will, again  place  the Coeur  d'Alene mines on a  firm  basis  of-iprofit  and  productiveness.     An order of this  kind Avillbe> hailed with deiightjbybbth  miners 'j and-    mine   " operators:    and  will   dp   much   to ;healv .oyer ?the   Old ���'.���-.,'���  sores     arid     the      radical     differences  groAving out of the  recent troubles.

The mine owner's lookout is rather
amusing, aside from the evil effect it is
having ujion this particular section. It
is a lockout that injures most of the mine
OAvners, or they who carry the key.
Since the association niines shut doAvii to
$:{.50-a-day men, they haA'e been losing
money daily. On the other hand, the
miners who Avcro throAvn out of AA'ork by
the shut doAvn have secured situations
elsewhere and have been making money
daily. Kvory miner avIio can be spared
has either gone outside of this immediate
vicinity anrl secured employment or is
away in the hills. The whole trouble
has now centered in this A'icinity, and.
with the exception of the Yinir mine in
the Nelson district, all the mines that are
refusing to pay the standard scale of
wages are situated within a, radios of ten
miles of New Dem-or. Nino out of ten of
them aro dividend payers, Avhen Avorking.
The managers ought to recognize the
hopelessness of their case and proceed to
business like men of reason. If they had
succeeded in operating a single mine under the association scale in the past three
months thereinight be some excuse for
their hanging on, but they haA'e failed
utterly, and they stand iu the position
today of the boy who has locked himself
out of the jam closet. While -every.man-
attempting to do business in the district
is suffering AA'ith the mine owners, the
mine.Avorkprs are not injured by the folly
of the situation.

'That's  easy to aiiSAver,' he replied instantly, ' so  long as ITayti, Porto Rico and Cuba are  parts of it.' "         Sometimes it is a pleasure to ansAA'cr  questions CArcn if the questioner may put  them in an unpleasant Avay: "What do  you do for a living?" asked a lawyer  frrnvning horribly at a hatchet-faced  young man avIio aviis undergoing a cross-  examination. "I, sir," answered the Avitness hastily, diving into his sidepocket,  "am agent for Dr. Korker's celebrated  corn and bunyon destroyer. Greatest  remedy of tho age; used by all the  croAvncd heads of liurope; never knoAvn  to fail to'remove the most obstinate corn  in,less lhaiwtA\'enty-four hours or money  cheerfully refund���������" Here the court  interfered;    ./* _-._- .=/.."        -*_  A.

When "good-night" AA'as reached,  the Avheels Avere all restored to their  owners without the least confusion.- But  there followed a painful scone oi' suppressed profanity. The servant, it Avas  discovered, had pinned the checks to the  tires, and," where tho pins' Avould not penetrate tlie rubber easily, had driven them  home Avith a hanmer.  The lato colonel Ingersoll Avas riding in  a street-ear one day, Avhen the Rev.  DeWittTalmagc got iii, and they presently fell into an argument. Finally  Thgersol! said: "Then you Avould like to  live in a place, brother Tahnage, Avhere  every one had to be good by law?" "Certainly," said Tahnage, "Yon Avould like  to live.

The day  before the ncAvly organized journal AA'as  to make its appearance, Collins came into  the editorial room. The editor aa-Iio was  writing an article that subsequently led  to the doAA'iifall of the higlnvay ring that  had the municipal life of Philadelphia in  its clutch. Collins walked up and down  the dingy, dirty room for aAvhilc, anrl  suddenly said : " McClure, excuse me one  moment. This is a great enterprise that  avo'a'c gone into. I have put more money  into it than any other man, and AvhateArer  the outcome may be I AA'ill not squeal ;  but in conducting this newspaper I AA'ould  simply like to address to you one suggestion.". The editor looked up inquiringly, poised his pen, and said: "What's  that?" "Why, run it as you damn  please."  The London papers are telling tho story  that a AA'ell-knoAvn American jockey Avas  dining a few nights ago, Avith kindred  spirits, at a hotel in the Strand. "Let  me introduce these lads to you," presently remarked a passing acquaintance.  "Say, you felloAA's, this is Mr. Bland, manager of the Frisk Variety Theatre."  " Pleased to meet you," Bland observed  affably, shaking hands AvitiY the' avcII-  knoAvn jockey, "and all of you. I hope  some night to see you at the theatre. I'll  send you stalls some day." The jockeys  remained dumb. " I can send you stalls  some night," Bland repeated, "almost any  night, Avhat night shall it be?" The  popular jockey glanced up at him carelessly. Then, " What's the matter with  the boxes?" ho asked, dryly.  French Domestic Life.  A curious episode of Parisian domestic  life has just been lwealed by the courts.  Two families living in the Rue Ilivoli determined to join forces aud set up housekeeping, thus lessening expenses. The  arrangement did not last long. Thei'o  ,A\'as a general grand break-up and each  husband Avent to liyein undisturbed felicity Avith the other man's. Avifc." Double  divorces,'Avere^ soon "obtained and",two  fresh marriages celebrated.. Finally the,  children in the case constituted, the element of dissension, iii the harmony of the  new arrangement.:. One of the husbands,  who had three of his oavh by his first  wife, volunteered to take tlie tAvo child-  'dren of liis second wife by, her  first Husband also under his care.  But before, long the'fond father and  foster-father began "to find' that liis  'household was rather- expensi\'e, and  after trying in vain ; to have the other,  couple contribute their share for the support of/the children, "brought an action  against his former Avife and his Avife's  former husband for forty-five thousand  francs, being half the amount expended  by him on the children since thetAA'o  divorces aiid subsequent Aveddings.  About ten days ago the court dismissed  the claim, on the ground that " the duty  devolving on parents of bringing up their  children is not a matter of solidarity."   ;  a. personal and religious history of the  applicant preacher and members outlined  in writing. The order' further decrees  that all who desire to establish or build a  temple, church, preaching or lecture house  for religious purposes must apply for permission, furnishing the folloAving particulars: "Why such a building is necessary.  Information relating to the site and  structure* also a plan of tho edifice, the  name of its religion, method of control  and maintenance; AA'hen there is a church  Avith a preacher, his qualifications and  method of his election." If the building  is not completed Avithin the term stated,  the permit .will bo null and A'oid. If  pi-eachers are to be changed or their number increased or if any change occurs  bearing on any tenets or plans or anything connected with tho faith, if it is desired to.moA'o the building or if anything  is AA'anted the preachers or those in  charge must go to the governor for permission. Even if a sect is to go out of existence the governor must likewise liave  his say about it.  V  A KemarkaMe Lake.  The most remarkable body of Avater in  the Avorld lies in the vicinity of the Colorado river, in southern California. In  this region of ugly volcanoes, desolate  Avastes and slimy SAvamps, the strangest  phenomenon of all is Avhat the,naturalists call a "lake of ink." No other description fits as Avell. The strange black fluid  that forms the lake boars no resemblance  to water.. The pool of ink is situated  about half a mile from a volcano. It is  about an acre in area. The surface is  coated with gray ashes from the volcanoes to the thickness of about six inches,  thus concealing its real nature. Experience has proved that the black fluid of  the lake is not poisonous. It acts as a  dye, and cotton goods soaked in it keep  their color for months, oven when exposed to the sun. They also acquire a "stiffness''similar to that produced by Aveak  starch. The fluid has been analyzed, but  its component parts have not been made  known. As to the source of the supply  of the lake, nothing definite has been ascertained.    It is undoubtedly of volcanic  FULL LINE OF  origin, but nothing more definite is  known. This is a bad land that has  nevei* been traversed. Human beings  haA'e 'tried it, but they never return to  tell of their experience or their discoveries.  Osier is Bellicose.  Toronto, August 25.���Speaking at a  smoking concert held last night liy officers attending the Ora mutches, E. B.  Osier, M. P., said he Avas opposed to doctrines of universal peace and Avas of the  opinion that a strong force of soldiers  was an an attractive feature of any  country. "Wo used to be taught to  spread abroad the doctrines of peace,"  remarked the speaker, "but I do not believe these arc correct.
