 DUNSMUIRS WANT THE EARTH  **w  -'*0Sa/  And the Ocean Also.  Special to1 tlio Tribune.  Victoria, Septeniber 7.���TV. TV. B. Mc-  Lines, M. P., is the most talked about  man on Vancouver 'Island just iioav, and  his ears should bo.red hot. No word of  approval is heard of liis revolutionary  appeal to the working classes to take  Upon their own shoulders the regulation  of the'question of Oriental immigration,  seeing that appeals to tlie government  liave proved useless.  The press on both sides .of politics is  ceaseless in scorching the young man,  and doctor MeKeehnio is authority for  the statement that this tirade against  capital is not well received in Nanimo,  wliich means that he has incurred the  enmity of the coal barons. There is evidently something interesting in .'tore for  the boy orator when ho carries out his  promise to resign and seek re-election.  The   provincial   government  has just  intervened   in   tin,, action   between   the  Esquimalt & Nanaimo Railway Company  and the New Vancouver  Coal   Company,  which promises to be better than a bonanza claim for the kvwyci's.    In brief, the  issue is that tlie  railroad-company  disputes tho claim of  the Now Vancouver  Coal Company to ownership of coal estimated   at   four   million   tons,   situated  under Nanaimo harbor, and to which the  New Vancouver  Cotd  Company  believe  the Hudson's Bay  Company  gave them  title.    The railway company claims  that  the coal passed to them   with their land  grant  from  the  Dominion   government,  and   the  provincial  authorities' contend  that when  the province  conveyed this  land to the Dominion for  transfer to tho  railway company  it did not convey the  right to mine coal .under the  sea  adjoining.    Robins of the New Vancouver Coal  Company stands in the same relation to  the presant gavernmont as   Dunsmuir of  the   Esquimault   &   Nanaimo    Railway  Company, stood  to  the Turner  government, a fact which lends interest to provincial intervention. :.s.. -���"  The connection between politics and  the militia is further illustrated by a  complaint wired from Otttiwti that in the  selection of aides de camp to the governor  general, colonel Gregory of this city was  passed over because he was a Liberal.  The militia department recommended  Gregory, but the selection -was made by  general Hutton, who is a stranger to  Canadian politics.

Spokanf, September  7.���There seems  to be considerable activity in mining circles here.     Heavy stiles have taken place  lately in Republic and low-priced British  Columbia stocks. Interest in this section is  being  largely  diverted to Sumpter and  the country around Baker City, Oregon,  which is now enjoying a boom.      John N.  Burke, captain  C.  H.  Thompson,  C.  S.  Warren and VV. L.  Vinson  of Magnolia  fame tire all interested there, as well  as  colonel John T. Grayson of New York, a  woll known mine owner and  promoter.  General C. S. Warren has purchased the  entire townsite of Sumpter.    Nearly all  tho Spokane men who are interested in  Rossland   and   the  Slocan   country are  represented  on  the  ground.    Many big  strikes have been reported recently and  a railroad to the camp is contemplated.  Edison, the famous  inventor, is interesting himself in  some immense mining  properties iii New Mexico.     He has purchased  the  Ortiz,  grant for a consideration of about .$3,000,000.     The gran t was  confirmed by an act of congress of March  1st, 1SG1, for 00,000 acres.     Of the original    grant  15,200 acres was sold to the  Corrilios   Coal   Iron   Company,   leaving  about ;*34,000 acres.    Electricity will play  an   important   part   in  liis   operations.  He will build a large plant for the reduction and treatment of gold ores by a new  electric process.  Real esttito is moving hero. There  have been many transfers at good figures.

The Breach Widens.  Tho council meeting last evening did*  not last many minutes. As it was supposed that the Sunday closing bylaw  would comes up there was a full attendance���saving, of course, alderman Thomson���-but the promoter of the bylaw was  not prepared to go on, and after deciding,  upon motion of alderman Fletcher, seconded by alderman Hillyer, to purchase  a six-foot Pel ton wheel at a cost of $1213,  the council adjourned.  Prior to the adjournment, alderman  Fletcher asked the mayor if it was not  proposed to go on with the consideration  of the batch of bylaws wliich were read  a second time at the previous meeting.  Alderman Beer replied that the bylaws  could come up at the regular meeting on  Monday evening.  Alderman Fletcher retorted that when  -the-council-adjournedon���Tuesday-even"^-  ing  it was  understood that the bylaws  should   come   up  again  at  the  present  meeting.  Alderman Beer at once moved that the  council adjourn.  Alderman Fletcher moved that the  .council go into committee on tlie'bylaws..  Alderman BlcKillop seconded the .motion to adjourn, aiid as alderman  Fletcher's amendment was declared irre^  gtiltir, the council acljourued in a show of  temper, alderman Fleteher giving alderman Beer a shot to the effect that the  early adjournment would enable, him to  get his editorial copy ready for the morning issue of the Nelson Miner.  The Cold Water Did Her Good.  Vancouver, September 7.���Miss H.  Straudt, formerly a housemaid at the  Hotel Vancouver, jumped into False  creek last night after a quarrel with her  lover. She was rescued by a passer by  named Peter Brusatore. who jumped into  the water .and pulled her out. The young  woman today regrets her hasty action.  CASES IN THE COUNTY COURT  Lapointe Secured Judgment.  The greater part of yesterday's session  of the county court was occupied with  the hearing of tho ease of Lapointe vs  St. Denis. This was an action brought  by John Lapointe against Napoleon St.  Denis to recover the stun of $71, being a  balance on .account for materials supplied  the defendant on plastering jobs as well  as a commission upon contracts sub-let to  him. Tho defendant however entered a  counterclaim amounting to $4(51. The  case was tried before judge Forin and a  special jury composed of TV. A. Thurmau,  James McPhce, Fred Bloomfield, E. J.  Mills and J. H. Nickerson.. The evidence  was directly contradictory. The jurors  returned a verdict for the plain ti ff for  the full amount claimed -and dismissed  the counter claim. S. S. Taylor, Q. C.,  appeared for the plaiutiff aud A. M.  Johnson for the defendant?  Sub-Contractors Claim Damages.  The case of Johnson vs Carlson was an  action brought by John Johnson and  Biagio Casco, who had a sub-contract on  the Nelson ��fc Bedlington railway under*  G. A. Carlson. They claimed that there  had been a breach of their contract on  the part��of Carlson, and asked for damages to the amount of $1000. This  amount they made up as wages fo r 101 i  days at $3 per day each and materials  supplied to the amount of $391. Tjie  claim of the defendant was that the plaintiff's went behind on their contract to  the extent of some $1700, and that there  had been ho breach of the contract on  the part of the .defendant. R. M. Macdonald appeared for the plaintiffs and C,  W. Me Ann for the defendant. '  Tlie plaintiffs failed to prove their case  and were non-suited so that the defendant's counter claim for $1700 was not  gone into.    i '  , Kootenay Air Supply Cases.  . The cease of Lynch vs the Kootenay  .Air Supply, Company was adjourned till  (the 18th instaut,by. consent. In this case  the plaintiff issuing the Kootenay.

Numerous mineral strikes and developments have taken place. Avhich number  has been added to since Monday. The  Owners of the Ruby claim, located close  to the Neglected, have been exploiting  their ground and have shown up a  healthy looking ledge. They brought  tlown some rock for assay yesterday, the  returns showing the phenomenal high  values of $23.36 hi gold .and 1343 ounces  of silver. Tho ore was taken from a  three-inch paystreak, close to the wall.  The owners, who are local men, have  commenced a tunnel a little below the  -chute exposed, and the drift will be continued to catch the ore. This, as well as  other recent discoveries, has been made  on ground which in past years has been  , held to be barren and worthless.  *"' Quite a number 'will go from here  Saturday to Nelson to hear Godfrey's  band.  , Howard West, the local assayer, will  read a paper at the meeting of the  Canadian Mining Institute at Nelson  iiext week.  ,- The wife and family of Rev.

Singer  was supposed to deposit money received  for his firm with the Western Loan &  Trust Company, sending them the deposit slips. On August 26th Feck & Co.  drew oil the Western Loan & Trust Company, for a large sum of money, which  the deposit slips sent them by Singer  'showed to be to their credit.

The Situation in the Slocan.  ' .Now-Denver Ledge.  J A general meeting of the mine managers  was held Tuesday, but up to the present  time wo have been unable to learn from  an authentic source what, if any, tiction  vi^as taken. The report is current that  several of-the big mines will be shipping  ore by the 15th; that the standard stuile  of wages will be paid, but that the union  will not be recognized. This sounds flat,  and how much truth there is in -it is yet  to'be demonstrated. The same difficulty  wpuld Joe met with that' has confronted  the mine owners since June 1st.  Thd evils ofthe sHut-down ��� have, been  sorely felt'tit Sandon. Particularly.hard  have they been" felt by J. M." Harris,,  -owner of the townsite and'many important enterprises, besides being interested  in the Reco and.Goodcnough mines, and  he is striving hard to break the combination that is checking prosperity and  throwing the district down. There are  other mine managers quite as anxious to  start work, us is'Mr. Harris, and through  their combined' efforts it is to be hoped  the outside managers will be induced to  agree upon a basis of settlement that  will permit the operating of such properties as are desirous of doing so.

Will Not Do.  A request to abolish the royalty On  gold mines in the Yukon would deserve  more consideration than the suggestion  that the ten per cent royalty on the gross  products of the mines should be reduced  to a smaller tax on the "net " output.  Transfer the royalty from the gross product to the net output and a Christopher  Columbus would be needed to discover  the net output. Subscribers to the Dnw  son City protest are estranging public  sympathy by demanding that the tax  should be upon the net output. They  have a good change to make out a case in  favor Of a smaller royalty ou the gross  output, but they are throwing away their  chance by trying^.to have the net output  established as a basis of the royalty.

Tlie present agitation   against   this   republic emanates  from a certain section of British residents  to whom the existence of the republic,  Avhich   embraces   the   most   nourishing  parts of South Africa, is a standing eyesore and who suffer from prevailing jingo  mania; partly, also, from mining capitalists  wlio are  not  content with having  the best mining laws in the world, who  wish also to have complete control of all  legislation    and    administration.       The  franchise question was taken up by England because it was thought the republic  would not yield on that point.    Now that  the altered franchise does not materially  differ from the American (in many respects easier) the agitation has become  worse.     The  object,  clearly,  is the destruction  of our republic and the complete control ofthe richest mines iu the  world." ______________  Kruger and Joubert Talk.

Pretoria,   September  7.���There   was  SATISFIED TO GIVE THE LAW  A Fair Trial;  Frank A. Heap, who is developing the  Tariff and Pontine properties iu the Ains-  Avorth camp, was in Nelson yesterday.  Although at the outset Mr. Heap was opposed to the enforcement of the eight-  hour law, ho now concedes that the" law  is here to stay, and personally he is satisfied to continue working under it. So  far he considers that the enforcement of  the law has helped the camp, but whether  it would continue to be a good thing he  could not say. At the Tariff Mr. Heap  is working a crew of fourteen men,  chiefly upon development. He expects  about the end of the present month to  put about 700 tons of ore through the  Highlander concentrator.  On the Highlander tunnel good progress is now being made. The power  drills aro being used, and as the size of  the tunnel lias been reduced from 8x8 to  5x7 much greater progress is being made.  There has been considerable talk during the last few days about a good strike  being made in the No. I mine. The men :  working on the property report striking  a nice body of ore, but the extent of the  find is not yet definitely ascertained. -  At the Little Phil property a force of  thirty-five men are. at work-'and regular  shipments are being made to the  Hall:  Mines smelter."...  Representatives of the Manchester syndicate, wliich have been picking up zinc  ores for shipment by sailing vessel to  Great Britain, have been looking over  several claims in the camp and the prospect appears bright for their acquiring "  and working several of the properties  Avhich have remained idle for" years owing  to excess of zinc in the ore.

It is the common practice among miners and prospectors and,  strange to say, among assayers, to value  the copper contents of ores on New York  quotations.    It is a' grave mistake to do  this in any case, but for the assayer to ='  basehis values of .the copper contents on ~  such quotations is a most serious mistake J':;  t;���wrhicli.\ o^fteu^ms^��Jea||s^^jugret. j_.t^disaj>^j^  fi-oi^lliMi^  S"*sSh5.Ss*  poiui&t&ii^  iieje:cti^  J^imr W'olluecji nif tl# ^6i|n tr^dlMiSsy-^  , -;��� ^sji'f e?"^^  ^".feMk unit ;Sy s$eni ���n.iiless��th":^Xai:b|aftle5.r;'"'  Jiier>a|st^  *aiitr��� \v_i$l i>:Va}hi t&g ai'iue|jf ��ut;}B^!^e%''^9jfTc_?n��*  J.S^ :_1p|f-Si  K ��f5fS;ft el  great excitement in the raa'd todjiy on  (Joestor's interrogation of tho govern*  meat regarding tho presence of British  troops ou the border and the stoppjigc^of  "ii.niinunitimi_cousignetll,o^hc_Transv��a'L  President Kruger, the members of the  executive council and most of the.principal officials were present, together with  ti largo representation of ihe general  public, including many ladies.

It seems to be all a part of their  country that you soon become an enormous, niastodonic liar. But the people  are good, whole-souled, kind follows withal, with hearts as big as their lies, who  will put on a new bonnet and choker and  come down to the boat and bid you good-  by, oven if you haven't known them more  than a couple of days.

IN   LOVE   WITH   A   PAINTER.  The Romance of a Portrait.  Jacques Bruhiere is an artist whose  mythological pictures have ti most delightful ��� modern air. His Grecian goddesses look like Parisicnnes; their windblown hair, their high-heeled sandals, and  a peculiar twirl given to their drapery  have 'captivated the Parisian ladies. So  tliey crowd Jacques's studio, and implore  him to let them sit tor Diannas and Andromeda's.. But he is a most unromantic  fellow, and is swayed by no considerations other than those of gain. Although  he is but thirty, he litis gained fame and  some fortune; and he is so industrious  that he Hies from useless words and tiiue-  coh.siiiners^-that is to say, women and  bores.. .. -"_ "  A year ago, just after the art exhibit  closed, Jacques determined to go on a  sketching tour. So he packed his trunk,  assisted by his friend, Eugene de Lassi,  and was bidding adieu to his studio, when  the servant entered with a note. It was  a nice little note, daintily .perfumed, and  the address was written in the most delicate hand imaginable. He read it,  frowned, and, crumpling it up, threw it  on the floor. o  "Confound the women!" he cried.  "What's tho matter?" asked his friend.  "Why, I'm such an unlucky fellow,"  replied  Jacques.    "There's  always some  M'Ui.Q." X,;e_.

Jacques Brnhiet'e,  liainter, set Off for Switzerland, and Eit-  =gene=de=Iiiis8irnittii-oN0ttei'Srretnainedito  personate him. But only for Mine.  Leonie. Other visitors were told the  truth���that the master wits gone.  At last she came. Eugene's romantic  fancy had painted her tis young and beautiful. B i|t she was'more than tliat���she  was divine. She .-was a brunette, and had  the most delightful nose, the most sparkling eyes, the most ���glorious hair, and the  most adorable little hands and feet that  Eugene liad ever seen. He flattered liiitit  self thtlt he was. correctly liiade up for.  liis role. His velvet blouse and jamvfcy  cap wore a little too clean, perhaps, but  that Was A good fault. '  Mine. Leono wanted her portrait painted, tind it was very difficult for her to decide how it should be done. She wavered long. One day she would be Onipliale*;  the next she had decided that to be  represented as Salome was necessary to  her peace of mind. But when Eugene  liad made his preparations, liis fickle goddess decided that Pglilah was'the character that suited her.v A^iid: then she would  wander around the studio, and drape  herself with the barbaric stuffs used by  Iongrgonfi .models, and" handle the curious  weapons, and examine the porcelains.  And then she would say that she iyas  weary, and would come the next day.  And she would go, leaving Eugene de  Lassi deeper in loVe than' ever. .'������'���  As for liim,-he was in a dream. He had  retired from the world.. At' his own  quarters his door was daily stormed by  publishers, by managers, by printers'  boys, by creditors, and by friends. But  no one knew ���tyh'eroTie'had gone' '���' He had  told his servants he was going away, but  had not told them where. It was wrong,  decidedly wrong; but he took ti certain  ferocious joy in.it when he thought how  he himself had once pursued these same-  editors antl managers.  Eugene had tit last discovered that his  inamorata was a widow, wealthy, and of  good family. Her full name was Leonie  tie Nores. He had never told his love,  but that she was blind to it was impossible. Yet she was certainly blind to his  painting, for she expressed her admiration of it with an enthusiasm that made  Ktigeno wince. But one day, when he  wtis, as usual, attempting to transfer her  to canvas, a ptirticttlarly atrocious tree  which he introduced iii the background  attracted her attention.  "Jacques," said she, "don't you think  that you are���-that you are���well, that  you're losing a little of your skill?"  "What!" shouted Eugene.  "I mean���that is���I'm afraid that I  keep you from your work so much  tliat -"  ���'1 oniy hope that you ��� may keep me  from it forever," returned the amorous  Eugene.    And so the dangerous moment  ptisscd.  *        *        *        *        *        #       *  But this state of affairs could not last  forever. One fine day, as Eugene was  seated upon a divan thinking of his ladylove, who had just departed, who should  enter but Jacques Bruhiere. Yes, there  he was, with his attendant carrying his  umbrella, his sketch-books, his camp-  stools, his baggage���a true artist just  froni the country. The false one  trembled as he thought jbhat his dream  was over. Had he been a Borgia he  would htive slain his friend. As he was  not, he pressed his hand warmly, and  bade him welcome. .  But how could he extricate himself  from his dilemma? How could he answer  to a high-spirited woman for the deception he .had practiced upon" her? As to  persuading Jacques to consent to tiny arrangement for. keeping up ^he deception  that was out of the question; where his  art was concerned the painter would  prove sis deaf as a post and as unmanageable as a balky horse. So. Eugene, was  5Jul&l.f��..-$_^  ��..3ttn;vlly��iiC*briglit idea, loecm'ijed. to/jhmi:?  ^ff&y ^^^l^yigBl^e^ ^ii^i^con|'i|;:  tiniiix -to/. J&iie..0..It���&.��I.

Tlie artist stepped to the wall and rung  the bell.   The door opened, and a servant  entered, clad in livery and Avearing im  apron���rendered necessary by tlie fact of  his cleaning: brushes.  "Did monsieur ring?" lie asked.  Leonie .tared tit bun, and grew white.  "Yes, Jean," replied the artist.    "Gather up tlie frngiiients of this trifle, which  madanio     has    unfortunately     broken.  Now," said  he, 'turning   to Leonie,  "if  niiidame will lditdly inform me to what I  owe tlie honor of tliis vis������*'"  He stopped.    Her white, set face, her  "A lackey!" she hissed; "a base lackey!  And I have loved this heartless, cruel, lying wretch!"  With a sudden impulse of fury she  snatched up a pretty toy, a silver poniard,  which lay upon the table, and sprang at  Eugene. Quick as a flash the artist dash*  ed between them. But quick .is he was,  lib was too late. The poniard struck Eugene in the side inflicting a deep wound.  As he did so, Leonie uttered a shriek, and  fainted away.  Eugene's comedy liad become ti tragedy.  "Truly a pretty sight for the studio of  an honest, hard-working painter," groaned Jacques Bruhiere, as he gazed upon  the two prostrate forms. "This comes of  obliging your friends.    Catch me doing it  again."  * .     *        *       *        *        *        *  Three years had passed. Leonie avjis  in the brilliant salon of the Comtesse de  Sagono, whose house aviis always lilled  Avith the literary men of the day, aud she  iiiArariably secured the literary lion. She  Avas making her Avay through the  brilliant throng toAvard Leonie.  "My dear," said she Avhen she reached  her, "you have read that novel of Avhich  all Paris is talking���'Les Deux Princesses?' "  "Yes," said Leonie, "it is a charming  Avork."  "Do you know its author?"  "Eugene de Lassi? No. Is he here  this evening?" .  "Yes, and I Avant to present him to yon.  Ah, there he is. M. de Lassi!" and in  another' moment there stood before  Leonie���the false painter!  For a moment she hesitated; but the old  spell reasserted itself, and she found herself listening, alniOst against her will, to  his pleas for pardon. And he pleaded'his  cause most eloquently.  "I0 am half inclined not to forgive you,"  she said tit length,' "you acted abominably  ���you knoAV you did."  "I acted like a fool and a knave," said  Eugene, "and you ought never to pardon  me; but you will, Avon'tyou?"  "Well," said the beauty, semi-reluctant- ���  ly, "if you'll be a \Tery good boy "  "Yes." ���  "And ncA'er deceive me again������"  "Never."  "And never paint any more such  Avretched trees "  "Never."  "Then I forgi\'e you for haA'ing played  the servant." *  "But I want to play it again."    ��  She looked at him inquiringly.
