 BANKRUPTCY AND STARVATION  In the Transvaal.  .foHANNESi.UKCi, September 4.���When  Mr. Packman, editor of - the Transvaal  Loader, was arraigned at the bar of the  first criminal land rost today the public  prosecutor announced that on the instructions of the Transvaal state attorney, Mr. Smuts, he would withdraw the  charge of high treason against the prisoner and enter a fresh charge; of contravening the press laws liy inciting to high  treason. Tlie offense is practically the  same, but it is one for \\ hich a defendant  may bo released on bail.  Mr. Hui'ger, solicitor for Mr. Pakemnn,  said he understood the original charge  had been withdrawn owing to the inability of the public prosecutor to convict, and he wanted to know whether  the charge would be again changed. lie  challenged the public prosecutor to supply lijm with the particulars of the new  charge, asserting that it was not right to  detain his client 2*1 hours in jail. Mr.  Burger then declared that the allidavit  upon which the charge against Mr. Pake-  man was based contained no particulars  tliat would justify a charge of'-treason.  The public prosecutor characterized this  statement as an "absolute lit!." The proceedings were then adjourned until  Septeniber 15b\x.  The correspondent of  the  Daily Mail,  who paints a gloomy and pitiable picture  of the condition of things here, says : "It  is almost a case of wholesale exodus and  panic.     Business   is   paralyzed   and  the  prices  of food stud's are   rapidly  rising.  Half the houses are empty and the others  are tenanted by people   who  do not pay  rent, tho  landlords being glad   to   have  them  as  occupants   in   order  to   insure  some sort of protection to   tho   property.  Tho tension   has   reached  tlie  snapping  point.    Bankruptcy  and   starvation arc  staring people in the face.    Another fortnight of suspense will result in   complete  commercial   collapse.      The   banks   are  thronged with  people  anxioVis to  withdraw    their    gold,    and    the  .railways  aro    besieged    by     those     wlio     wish  to'get away.    Rumor fixes-the number of  warrants issued at 147,  including all the  London daily newspapers.     Mr.   Money-  penny, editor of  the Star,   it is reported,  lias evaded tho  detectives  sent to arrest  liim and   has' succeeded  in crossing the  border.    Tt is believed that the mediation  of Mr. Fischer, the   representative of tho  Orange Free state, has failed.  .LoiVDON,   September  4.���The Morning  Post   publishes   the   following   from   its  special correspondent at-Cnstleric, Natal.  "I left Johannesburg on ascertaining that  it was the intention of "the  government  to arrest every olio who had taken a leading part in advocating the "claims of the  Uitlanders.   It1 was an exciting,journey.  Boor policemen twice boarded the   train.  \ I saw" trucks   loaded   with commissariat  'stores and ammunition ready to start at  ��� every station.    The Boers  declare   their  intention soon to rush the Natal   border.  The' chief  officials  at  Pretoria   consider  -war unavoidable, and they have prepared  to strike before the British are ready."  >   The correspondent   of   the  Mail-Telegraph at I'iotcrmaritzburg, capital of Natal, says things have reached such a pass  that war is considered   unavoidable, and  tlie   impression   is   that  the  crash   will  come within a few days.     The  situation  at  Johannesburg is most anxious.    The  traders   are   unwilling   to   order   large  quantities of stores through fear of being  coinmandored.    Thus thousands will risk  starvation in tlie event of war, when the  railways will be cut.  Caimo Town, September 4.���The news  received from Pretoria today shows the  situation in clearer light. It appears  that the__^i*atvsyaal^-_l'6rjiy,-^wh-ieli-\va__  TUESDAY MOHNtN"G; SEPTEMBER 5, 1891).  PUBLISHED AT NELSdN, BRITISH COLUMBIA.  DAILY (BY MAIL) $5 A YEAR;  WEEKLY, $2.  London, September 5.���Amid the crowd  of   conflicting   dispatches    from    South  Africa, regarding tho Transvaal situation,  it is still impossible to say exactly what  has happened.    It  seems  evident,   however,  that  president   Kruger   has  withdrawn    the   five   year franchise,   which  was     dependent     on     (treat    Britain's  acceptance    of     impossible     conditions  regarding suzerainty, and had made some  sort of  tcnipori/.ing counter  suggestion  regarding a  conference.    The  Standard  and Diggers News gives what purports to  be a report of the  secret  session   of  the  Volksraad   on   .Saturday.    According to  this account the Volksraad not only determined to reject the  five, year  proposal,  but also stoutly opposed president Kruger  visiting Capetown, and resolved to make  a stand for the abrogation  of  England's  'claim   to suzerainty.     The   Boer organ  then asserts : "The government, both tho  Kaads and the Burghers, feel that  they  have     offered    all    that    they     intend  to offer, and are now resolved to stand or  fall by this decision."     Boer statements  of this kind, coupled with the arrests'at  Johannesburg,   speak  louder   than   the  wriggling   pretences  of   Pretoria  about  arriving at an understanding.    Certainly  Mr. Moneypenny ami the other refugees  will    not" bo   in    a    hurry   to    return  to   Johannesburg    on   account    of    tho  lino   assurances   of   tlio state  attorney.  GETTING IN SHAPE TO WORK  handed on" Saturday to the British diplo-  in-jibic agent at Pretoria, Mr. CoMygham  Greene, wi$ only to Mr. Chamberlain's  proposal respecting a conference at  Capo ToWn, andthat another '.reply will be  made tomorrow to Mr. Chamberlain's  original proposal of a joint inquiry into  the l*VanCh;isc bilk This method of  splitting the negotiations by the Transvaal is unfavorably commented upon  hoi'ti. The Cape Argus officially denies  that the government of tlio South African  ���Republic, hits agreed to it conference a*  Capetown. The Cape Argus also declared'  that the explanation offered by the  Transvaal attorney-general, Mr. Smuts, of  the arrests is nii-satisfactory and that tlie  mistake is one that calls for immediate  elucidation,  Piibtoima, Septeniber 4.-���In the course  Of an interview today State secretary  Reitz said that the Transvaal government  Was waiting until Saturday's dispatch  reached the Imperial authorities before  making its contents public. Without,  however, entering into details he could  say that in his judgment the proposals of  the government offered Mr. Chamberlain  an opportunity of coming to a settlement  regarding the franchise and other outstanding questions. He could also say  that the Transvaal would take part in  the suggested conference and was now  awaiting the Imperial government's reply  in order to arrange the details as to a  place of meeting.  London, September 1.���The secretary  of state for the colonies, Mr. Joseph  Chamberlain, arrived in London this  afternoon and at once proceeded to the  foreign office. He will remain here until  the end of the crisis.- The war'office refuses to confirm the rumor that "a  proclamation will be issued calling out  the reserves, -    .  Equal Wages For Equal Work.      .  ..Kansas City,  September 4.���A petition has been filed   in  the  circuit  court  for a pro forma decree of incorporation of  the American Equal   Wage  Union.    The  headquarters are in Kansas City,  and   it  is   expected   that   other  lodges will  bo  formed all over the United States. -  One  of'the organizer's  said  today:    "The object of  tlie  organization   is to do away  with woman labor as much as possible iu.  all departments of commerce and industries generally.    Women  have to a  certain  extent  taken   the  place of men in  some  occupations.     The  trouble is that  they are not paid the same wages as men  and that  they  keep  men avIio  are   the  heads of families out of good  positions.  AVe do not object to women working, but  we are-opposed.to their taking the places_  of men for half and   often at a third of  tho wages"that would be paid to men for  the same Avork.-   We  will  work to have"  all   persons  paid- equal  wages for equal  work."-       _ __________________   '  French Government Prepares for Trouble. L  JtisjCNUS. Septeniber 4.--As the end of  tho Dreyfus court martial trial conies  within sigiit the French government is  beginning to display a fear that the verdict may lead to troubles and orders have  just boon received by two regiments of  infantry and one cavalry regiment already within hail of Rennes to hold themselves in readiness to march into town  with the first sign of disorder, to occupy  all strategical points aud to repress manifestations in their inception. The local anti-Dreyfusard  organs by their anti-foreign articles have  already singled out foreigners as enemies  of the country, and there is little doubt  that foreign journalists will be the first  victims of the violence of the mob, not so  much Anglo-Saxon as Austro-Gerinan and  Russian .Tews, who form a majority of  the press representatives of their respective countries.  French Coast Controversy.  St. John's, Newfoundland, September  4.���The colonial cruiser Fiona, which,  arrived here last night from a .revenue'  cruise along the south coast, reports that  the French fisheries, on the (3rami Banks  are Very poor, owing to the colonial  policy of prohibiting the French from  securing bait. lYustworthyjinformation  goes" to show that the French, government is desirous of settling tlie treaty  coast controversy, the governor of St.  Pierre' having been recalled to Paris to  assist in the negotiations.  Fighting in Afghanistan,  BOMIUY, September 4.-���The civil and  military Gazotte reports severe fighting  iu the district of Peujedeah,a Turcoman  camp in Kokoorassaii about 135 miles  north of Herat, between Sirdan Mahomed  Ismael Khan, son of fsaKhan, and colonel  Mui' Hauied Khan, commanding the  trooos of the Ameer of Afghanistan.  The Afghans suffered heavily until reinforcements arrived, when- Ismael Khan  was defeated. The latter escaped into  Russian territory. _  Distinguished Servian Statesman Dead.  Belgrade, September 4.���M. Jean Ris-  tics, the distinguished Servian statesman,  who was regent in 18(58,-after the asssas-  si'nation of Prince Michael, during the  minority of Milan, and who was one of  the three regents who followed the abdication of king Milan, died to day in his  09 th year.   Builders Will Eesume Work.  COPENtiAGNN, September 4.���The lockout of employes in the building trades,  which had been in force here for some  time, has been ended. There were 85,000  persons involved, but it is thought that  ail will be working again by Thursday.     I  Slocan Lake Mines.  .Hpc'riiil t<> Iliu Tribune.  Nkw Dknvh'ii, September I.���The  owners of tint Simcoo group. Ten-mile,  will erect winter quarters aud proceed  with tho.development of that property.  During the past week the wires have  been kept hot arranging the terms of  several impending deals in this vicinity.  An eight-inch vein of quartz has been  uncovered this week on the United Empire, Ton-mile. It carries- considerable  iron and a streak of high-grade sulphide  ore, running high in silver. The discovery was made in the creek- bottom,  near the, sideline, and just below the  Weymouth ground. It is being developed.  Alex Smith, manager of the Surprise,  has purchased a five-twelfth interest in  the Bird'..Fraction and one-half in the  Summit Fraction from H. T. and H. M.  Walker of this town. The fractions adjoin the Surprise.  Mrs. H. J. Robie and family have removed from here to Nelson.  The electric lights were turned, on  Thursday night, after a summer's rest.  St. Stephen's church is in the hands of  the painters for outside decoration.  The owners of the Anglo-Saxon group,  east of the Mountain Chief, are ground  sluicing as. well as tunneling. In the  new workings they are 15 feet under  ground, the ledge showing quartz mixed  with iron and bunches of galena.  The local owners of the Queen Fraction, on the Galena Farm, state that they  broke into eight inches of ore on Thursday night.  Improvements are being effected at  the Queen Bess and accommodations increased for 100 men.  The government will repair the Three  Forks-wagon road, and next spring lend  aid to build the proposed Silver mountain  road to the California and adjacent properties.  The Payne made the big shipment of  five and a half tons of ore last week,  with three more from, the Coin.  Several properties arc putting on outside men to-got tilings in shape for the  winter.    - - .  The Lawyer Smooths Things Out. J  Phrtohia", Septeniber 4.���In connection  with tho arrest "of Mr. Paekman.edito'r of  tho Transvaal Leader, and the threatened  arrest of othei' Uitlanders, the state'at-  torney denies that instructions were over  issued at Pretoria for these arrests, or  that any political arrests were contemplated, but that warrants were issued at  Johannesburg without consulting the  state attorney. This announcement  tends to quiet the public mind and to arrest the exodus.  Mr. Smuts, the attorney-general, expressed regret that such unfounded  statements should have caused the  departure of several prominent Rand  .gentlemen, and specially trusts that his  assurances will bo accepted that they  need not have the slightest fear of any  such step being taken against them.

At one o'clock, however,  the i'ii in having ceased,, tho "hose teams  lined up for., a hub-and-hub contest.  Hossland's team was the same as contested at Nelson, and Nelson's was a  scratch team picked up merely to fill in.  Rossland won easily in 23 seconds, Nelson  tailing iu behind with three men in the  harness, the others having dropped out.  There were but two contestants in the  bicycle race, which was won by Mcln-  tyi'e, Cassidy, the winner at Nelson getting second.  In tho one hundred yards race for  union men there were three entries, and  it resulted: Wilson first, Roby second,  McLeod third.  In the coupling contest���fifty yards'  rim and a three thread couple���Collins  and Boyd won in 5{ seconds.  '.In the 220 yards footrace there were  four entries. Frew, Morris, Smith and  McBride came in in., the order named.  Frew is said to have had the best of the  start several feet.  The free-for-all horse race had three  entries, two horses from Idaho and Miss  Miller that ran in Nelson. Miss Miller  was fractious and did not get off well in  either heat. Hattie Watts, a black mare,  took both heats��with apparent ease.  Colonel Nipper, a big brown gelding, took  second without an effort, and Miss Miller  tailended. Hugh R. Cameron, of Nelson,  was starter. -  . The pony race was won by Mollie  Leech, the Trail mare that ran at Nelson,  Arlington, an outside horse,'' taking  second. .-���-������������    '"    ',."

He refers to the late lieutenant Henry,  major du Paty de Clam and himself as  being "victimized by the general staff to  cover their ovvn faults." He says: "France  is being devastated by civil war all the  more abominable because it is not being  fought with arms. Tlio Dreyfus verdict  will not end tlie strife. The acquittal of  Dreyfus, for which the government is  working secretly, will result in the complete disorganization of the French military system and the triumph of the  socialists." ^  Finland's Last .Chance' Gone,  ���: Stockholm, September 4.���It is announced that the emperor of Russia has  appointed privy councilor de Pioliiie  .minister-secretary of state for Finland at  St. Petersburg. This post has always  been held hitherto by a Finn, so the  grand duchy thus loses its last chance of  reaching the ear of the czar through the  person of a Finnish citizen.  t . i     , i *  Parisian Police Make Seizures.

It appears that the Columbia townsito  company, believing the lire was the work  of an incendiary, secured I'inkerton detectives. They worked quietly and scarcely  anyone knew of their presence in the district until the arrests were made. One of  the detectives was hereabout two weeks  ago. lie registered at the Imperial hotel  as M._F. Donahue of Den\Ter, Colo. He  claimed to be a mining man, appeared to  bo anxious to figure on the purchase of  the water power at Boundary Falls. He  was in fact hunting for Cameron. One  of the theories of the detectives is that  the Columbia hotel fire and tho burning  of four hotels in Greenwood were the  handiwork of the same gang.  Slocan Mines Will Resume.  The Now Denver correspondent'of the  Spokesman-Review, in treating of the  wage difficulty in the Slocan, says:  "While the question of miners' wages is  still unsettled and some of the large properties are Avorking full forces, all are  employing some men and .promise to increase their forces soon.

Given favorable Aveather the  local brick yards could have been depended upon to supply all the brick required  by the local building trade as well as  furnishing considerable brick for the outside trade, but owing to the wet Aveather  tlie brickmakers have averaged but tAvo  working days a week for some time past.  Lost time cannot be made up in brick-  making, as the frost regulates the season.  As tho wet Aveather has been general tlio  stocks of bricks at other points has been  depleted, and an advance in price is  among the probabilities.

TWO PROPERTIES CONSOLIDATED  Economy Will Be Effected,  " Special to Hie Tribune.  Nrav    DbnvbiV   Septeniber    4.���Two  months ago the Eastern press announced  the sale of tho  Fidelity  mine,   near this  town, to Montreal  and  Spokane parties;  This has turned out to'be"incorrect, as T.  J. Lendrum when bore last week,  stated  that tho mine had been sold to the Northwest Mining Syndicate,   who owned  the  adjoining  property,  the Bosun.    W. II.  Sandiford, manager of the syndicate here,  explains that the deal is in the Avayof an  amalgamation of the two properties, both  to be  operated   under one  management  and from tho lower and   more advantageous workings of  the Bosun.    Tho idea  of the scheme was  formulated by II.  C.  Oswald,   a   director   of   the    syndicate,  while here in May last,  but he  left the  details to bo carried out under the supervision of Mr. Sandiford.    By this amalgamation, a combination  has  been  formed  that will  havoa marked effect  upon the  mining industry in this .vicinity.    Soofar  tho actual conditions and terms have not  been made known, but sufficient has been  gleaned to warrant the assertion that the  properties  Avill develop' into  big  things  tinder the new  arrangement.    The accidental discovery of tho Fidelity,  its subsequent development, and its final passage-,  into the hands of Scott  McDonald  and;  his associates is'sufficiently well   known  by   this    time.    There   are    large   ore  reserves     known     to      exist   in    both,  properties, and future operations already  planned will  enhance greatly the value  of the group.    The Fidelity   and  Bosun,  Avith   the  -nuincrous   other claims   purchased during the summer by the syndicate as adjuncts, embrace the major portion of this ground from here to the Har-  ris ranch, forming a mineral holding unsurpassed in  the  Slocan.    By the use of  the Bosun Avorkings the A-ein oh the Fidelity can be Avorked at a minimum ex.-  pense,   as  the  ore   from  the  former  is  placed on  the wharf  ready for shipment  for   90   cents a ton  outside  the  actual  mining.    No  work  is   at  present  being  doneowing to the labor troubles, but Mr. -  Sandiford has  had many improvements  effected on the surface, so that Avhen operations are resumed they can be carried  on   without  let  aud   hindrance.

Lon'ihiX, September I.���The general  strike of seamen and 'steamer firemen,  Avhich lias been threatened forsome time,  aviis declared today. The shipowners refused to accept the hrvitatinn of the .Seamen and Firemen's Union for a conference in regard to fixing the rate of wages  for firemen and sailors on steamers at a  slight advance on the average wages now-  paid at the various -British ports.  Ileports as to the effect . and  thoroughness of the movement have not  yet been received, except from South  .Shields, where it is stated that two thousand men have gone out. Many meetings  have been hold in the vicinity of the London docks, the speakers expressing the  determination of tlie men to' remain idle  until their demands have been granted,  but traffic at this port has not yet been  alloc tod. It is not likely that the strike  will be completely ordered for several  days, and until then its extent will not  be known or its results keenly felt. The  manifesto of the union ordering the strike  includes all the ports in the United Kingdom.  Honored and Relieved.  Bkiu.in, September' 4.���The official  Staats An/.ieger today says that Dr.  Bosse, Prussian minister of public instruction, and baron Von'.Der Rockd Von  Derhorst, minister, of the interior, have  been relieved of their portfolios at their  own request. The paper .'adds, however,  that they both retain their ranks as ministers of state. Dr. Bosse has received in  addition tlie crown of the Grand Cross  and the red eagle, while baron Von Derhorst has received the grand cross and  the red eagle. Herr Studt, governor of  Westphalia, will succeed Dr. Bosse as  minister of public instruction, Avhile  baron Von Kheinbaden, governor of Dus-  scldorf, will succeed baron Von Derhorst.

Ho isgoijor-  al do Gollil'ot. With this m.-tn at the  helm in the betfinniiiK tho .Dreyfus affair  would never have become the scandal of  Europe. With the marquis do Ciallfet as  minister of war the famous bordereau  would never have been forged. Now,  within a few weeks,- lie has wrought order  out of chaos in the Dreyfus case. And  yet no soldier has loved the "honor" of  the army more or fought more bravely  to defend it than de Gallifet.  De Gallifet wns retired in 1805 at sixty-'  seven years of age. He felt the blow very  much. "The army was my family, my  work and satisfaction; now the, sooner J  die the better," he exclaimed. He did  not dream that his greatest work was yet  to come with his appointment as minister  of war.  Fate has delighted in providing opportunities for Gallifet. He fought in  France, in Russia, in Italy, in Mexico. He  was one of the figures of the second empire, the most brilliant general of bhe  third republic; when his career finds its  historian the writer will unfold a long  recital of fabulous feats, of extraordinary  love affairs, wild Avagers, insane duels, incredibly senseless challenges to death.  It is said of de Gallifet that his'physical existence is today a work of art.  Thirty-five years ago he came to Mexico  to fight for Maximilian. In a battle at  Puebla, De Ga Hi let's abdomen was torn  open with a "shell. Calmly'pressing his  lint into the terrible wound he made his  way^to the ambulance. The gallant gen-  -cral came back to France witli a silver  door on that side of him which was never  turned away from a Hon���the famous  necessary shield made necessary by his  Wound. ''Silver-bellied Gallifet'" has been  his nickname since'  Hut lie went on duelling and lighting  as ever. During one of his engagements  a spent ball rattled agaist hissilver shield.  "They'll have to use armor-piercing  shells if they want to kill me," ho laughed  to an ollicer wlio stood near by.  One year later, at an official dinner at  Paris, Napoleon 111. was saying that silver was getting cheaper and cheaper,  when Gallifet exclaimed:  "Ah, that's why our prime minister is  so sad. He lent me some money recently,  and he knows that my plaque is his only  security."  As a boy Galli&t wanted to enter St.  Gyr, the West point of France, His  father pro-tested, Tlie young man, not to  be balked of liis eai'eer, entered the I?U's't  Hussars as a 'ptf'vate. De GiUijTet, the  nfeu^eiuint���p mmojiion^  Is now prepared to issue Drafts and Letters  of Credit on Si\aguay, U. S��� Atlin., B. C, and  Dawson City, Yul^on, District.  and signed it "General de Gallifet." Napoleon III. wrote opposite that daring  signature, "('ranted."  lint the republic had al ready been proclaimed, and Gallifet had to win the title  a second time.  From captivity in Germany Gallifet  went homo to command part of tho army  of Versailles���to light Frenchmen. The  Paris commune, backed by the rough element of a great city, defied the national  power. Ono morning president Thiers'  said to Gallifet: "Take four squadrons:  to the bridge of the Hergeries. Vou can  capture there three or four hundred na-  tionol guards; they do not expect attack  so soon."  As the general drew near the Hergeries, instead of three or four hundred he  found three or four thousand soldiers  waiting.    He could not withdraw. c  Hut'he kept moving forward; and suddenly came the saving.idea. He stopped  his troop and called to his aid-de-canip,  lieutenant d'Harcourt, "Follow me."  Quite alone, they advanced aba leisurely trot. The insurgents deployed in a  half-circle to capture them. And no captive lived. Lieutenant d'Harcourt lit a  cigarette and said, "General, have a  smoke; we'll never return from this."  When they came within hearing the  colonel of the communards demanded:  "What do you want within our lines?"  "Listen," answered Gallifet, reining  his ��� horse, "so far there has not been a  bullet fired between Paris and Versailles.  If you surrender, all will be pardoned.  If you persist, tomorrow will see the beginning of a fight without quarter. Now  choose. I'll take your ansAver to the  president."  Indignant clajrours and threats answered his speech. Gallifet was waiting  Avitli folded arms and defiant mien.  At last the gray old colonel of the communards rode forth. "Say to M. Thiers  that avc refuse to surrender."  "Very well," was Gallifet's curt reply  as he rode aw.>y, conducting his escort  .back to Versailles iu^ safety. When at  -last the national troops overpowered the  commune there was no quarter. It Avas  as Gallifet had promised. Day after d.iy,  as the presidential lines closed about the  heart of Paris, trembling bands of communards Avere brought before Gallifet.  As one group after another filed before  him, this man of iron moved languidly  his white right hand that had smitten so  many, antl the sIoAV-inoving of it meant:  "Oh, take them aAvay; take them aAvay.  Let them be shot. Don't bother nie  longer; let them be shot!"  No, there Avas no mercy. This was the  procedure: When a band of communards  Avas brought in general Gallifet would  say in his languid tone of exquisite politeness, "Pray cause these gentlemen to hold  up their hands.  "Yes, general."  . "Ah, thank you. I perceive that there  are  powder  stains.    Messieurs,  I regret  Hurnicse embessy. The empress was  warned, that Burmese etiquette av.is peculiar. It was. The envoys alternately  rolled on the floor and turned clumsy  somersaults, led by a very fat old man.  The empress gravely, SAA'eetly smiled.  Every one else laughed. Then the old envoy's Avig fell off, revealing De Gallifet's  face. Tlie empress burst into tears, complained that she hail been insulted, and  ditl not forgive De Gallifet for Avceks.  De Gallifet married the daughter of  Lafitte, the banker. They do not live together, and he affectionately speaks of  her as "Little Pig." o  It Would Affect the World.  Salt Lake Tribune.  Things again look threatening in the  Transvaal. If Ave woro to be asked what  is the greatest present hope for silver re-  moneti/ation, Ave should say it would be  a Avar between Great Britain and the  Boers. Tho reason is that even if the  Boors did not succeed in destroying the  shafts and hoisting works of the mines of  the Rand, they would stop the production  of those mines, and what that would be  to the financial world can bo estimated  from the fact for the first six months of  the present year the yield of those mines  was '3,012,000 ounces of gold, or more than  $120,000,000 per aimum, or in round numbers, one-third of the product of  the world. With that shut off,  the depression in Europe Avould be sonic-  thing frightful. It Avould be very  liable to be communicated to this coim-  : try. It would be very natural for banks  once more to.withdraw their accommodations from all except special customers,  and if an absolute panic Avere avoided,  there Avould be a congestion which would  .fill the country with distress. Just iioav  this country is running on an even keel,  with engines at full speed and unlimited  coal in the bunkers, bub the nations  which-furnish us the coal are in sore distress, and to stop suddenly one-third of  the gold production of the world', would  bring a shock to every business center of  civilization.  The Venezuela Commission.  Paris, September 4.���Sir Robert T.  Reid, Q. C, former attorney-general of  Groat Britain, today concluded his argument before the Anglo-Venezuela boundary commission, presenting the case for  England. Counsel said that England and  Venezuela before the tribunal held absolutely the same footing, the question  being one of coiuparati\re title. George  Askwith, junior counsel, continued  bhe argument of England's case.  He expressed regret that his adversaries  had not yet given the legal view of the  present controversy. iSlr. Askwith referred to the statement of Spain laying  claim to the whole of America. He said  no European nation admitted this Spanish claim, and that the Dutch when they  obtained their independence upheld their  right of settling in the West Indies and  carried it into effect.

Ms captain was there, eapfcain Lourdey.  Tlie limine is remembered only lis the  name of a man killed by Gallifet. The  horrible duel they fought With cavalry  swords has remained Legendary. CJallifefi  Was almost hacked to pi-.oe_ai They carried him away with an ariii cut to tlie  bone, his right flank open, and with another murderous gash fi-oni liis left  shoulder to his right side. But lie had  killed liis man.  Noble exploits were Gaijifet's in the  rather ignoble Crimean war. Said an  English colonel to liim: "There is not a  limn in our army who does not wish you  were at the head of one of our regiments."  It was Gallifet who led the historical  assault on tlie Green Hill, and won by his  gallant conduct a decoration upon the  battle-field.  "We're lost! Now, Gallifet, a last effort for the honor of our arms!" cried  general Ducrot at Sedan.  "Anything you order, general," replied  Gallifet, wiping his bloody .swoi'd on his  sleeve. Colonel Gallifet led the terrible  charge, drawing cries of admiration from  Bismarck, the king of Prussia, and the  German military staff. In the melee he  lost liis cap. As he galloped back with  what remained of the Third Light Cavalry, Gallifet, with the point of his sword,  picked up from the field a general's kepi,  which he planted ou his head, saying to  Ducrot:        .        . .  "I deserve it, don't I ?"  A few days after he sent a request for  an interview with the imperial prisoner  Then that slow wave of the hand, the  gesture tliat meant death.
