 WAR PREPARATIONS CONTINUE  Kruger Seeks Intervention.  London, September 19.���The Fall Mall  Gazette prints t\ dispatch from Capetown  which says:. Tiro general impression is  that the Boers will at once take the initiative, and an attack is expected at any  hour. There is an unverified rumor from  Capetown today that the Boers have delivered another message to the British  high commissioner", sir Alfred JMilner,  more conciliatory than yesterday's message. The rumor, however, fails to obtain  credence and is not taken as iu any way  mitigating the seriousness of the crisis.  The Uitlander press sees nothing but war  ahead and urges tho Uitlanders to leave  immediately.  The Daily Telegraph publishes a  communication from a  military  correspondent  who,  discussing  the  effects  of  fie  f)rn.ngo   Free  State   throwing   in   its lot  with the Transvaal, says :    "In the event  of   war   this   will   greatly    increase  our  difficulties and will lengthen tho duration  of tho campaign, but the   work   will be  accomplished and  the   Union  Jack  will  float over consolidated South  Africa  between the Zambesi  and  the  Cape.    The  principal danger which besets the British  .position is ,a sudden outbreak of hostilities, enabling the Boers to secure  a  few  minor successes, wliich would bringdown  upon iis ovory.Dutchman in South Africa.  The   ���f-talemont   that    the    Boers    are  sei:li   ;      compressed      forage    to    tho  Nata.   border,   seems   to    signify    that  will       not       wait       for      new  but  are  preparing  for  an iinmo-  advanee.    For this, we   certainly  aro not yet prepared,    ft is  doubtful if  the  few  troops  and  volunteers   now in  Natal could even maintain the defensive.  The   Cape   frontier, from   Makefing   to  Kimberley, including the. diamond fields,  is practically defenceless, and a.eombined  attack by the Orange Free State and the  Transvaal  might.,result, in disaster and  the retreat o| oiii'"'threes toward Durban,  leaving the border towns in the hands of  the enemy.

The steamer .Jelnnga, willta.ko.���������'OO  troops from Britain l��'i<u,d..'-"for Natal tomorrow, and she will emb-��k a rifle brigade at the Island of "Qv.te icy the Cape.  According to a desp ��� ;'-\ *roi..V.Durban,  Natal, the premier of ��� .ie co'ony "says  that the alarm of the people of J-.'ir.ai at,  the unprotected condition of border  towns is quite unwarranted, and thao all  efforts to incite the Zulus have failed.

Paris, September H).���M. Jules Guerin,  the French gentleman who for the past  six weeks successfully resisted the siege  of the army of France and all attempts  to capture him. Iras surrendered. It-happened something'like this:  Pauls, September 19.���At 11 :.30 tonight  M. Lucien Millevoye, one of the deputies  for the department of the Seine, accompanied by the brother of M. Jules Guerin,  the anti-Semite agitator, entered the  grand Occident, the building in the Rue  do CJiabrol, whore Guerin and his companions have long been beseiged. They  left the building at -12:30 o'clock. -M.  Millevoye's mission was a failure. It is  said that he strongly urged Guerin to  surrender, but .the latter imposed impossible conditions.

London, September 19.���The Royal  West Sussex regiment sailed- today for  Malta, where it will replace the First  Border regiment, which goes by the same  steamer to .Natal.  Lo^vnoN", Septeniber 20.���The lull in the  Transvaal crisis gives opportunity for the  continuance   of   unolTicial   negotiations.  The government  of the  Netherlands  is  privately exerting its influence  in favor  I of a peaceful solution,  and  it is  under-  fitond that president Kruger, through Dr.  Leyds, the plenipotentiary of  the South  j African Republic to the governments of  (Europe, has unofficially approached three  mowers with a view to securing their in-  ltervontion.    From Capetown comes a re-  Iport that the government of the  colony  |Ci)nteniplates"introduciirg"a_!trotioirin"tlie~  [Cape assembly urging  tho Transvaal to  liccept the demands of Great Britain.  Sir Alfred Milner has addressed further  inquiries to president Steyn of the  [Orange Free State. Whatever the official attitude of the Orange Free State  tuay be, the temper of its burghers, judging from numerous meetings held in  [Bloenifonteiu and elsewhere, is to assist  s Transvaal. The free state com-  luandants in Pretoria are now discussing  ���the position with the Transvaal officers  luid the meeting of tho free state volksraad tomorrow (Thursday) will have an  (important influence on the situation.  London,  September   19.���The corros-  liondent of the Daily Mail  at Picterniar-  t/.burg, Natal, telegraphs that the  military   authorities   there    have   received  fvarning from  Johannesburg    that   the  Joers have purchased great quantities of  "pyanide of potassium for the purpose of  poisoning tire streams in tlie Transvaal  [ikely to be used by the British troops.

Wanted to Hang the Bakers.  Havana, September" 19.���An attempt  was made today to rob and perhaps lynch  the Spaniards at Regla, a suburb of  .Havana.    The Spaniards had arranged a  FURTHER APPROPRIATION MADE  For Columbia & Kootenay Improvement.  Word was received in Nelson yesterday to the effect that the Canadian Pacific Railway Company had made a further  appropriation'for the work of straightening out and improving the Columbia &  Kootenay branch between Nelson and  Robson. Early this year an appropriation of $50,000 was made for this and  other work on the Columbia & Kootenay  branch, the greater part of which was  expended upon the contract which W. P.  Tierney & Co. secured from the company  and which is now receiving the finishing  touches. The second appropriation is  for $30,000, and it is understood that this  work will also be performed by Messrs.  Tierney & Co., and that the contractors  will have sufficient to keep them going  until winter sets in.  The action of the railway company's  directors in making this second appro  priation close upon what was virtually  the completion of the first contract gives  color to the rumor that work upon the  Columbia & Kootenay branch will be  continued from time to time until the  branch is put in first-class shape. As  the work must be performed so as not to  interfere with the company's train service, thus confining it to limited areas, it  is regarded as altogether likely that this  second appropriation will be followed by  a third. In the spring it has virtually  been decided to put on a steam shovel  and fill in most of the1* wooden trestles, as  by this means the company will avoid a  heavy expenditure upon repairs.  RAILWAY   AND   STEAMBOAT   NOTES.  CONVICTED OF HANDLING LIQUOR  Without a License.  R.-P.

' .  The first passenger train over the Rob-  son-Penticton branch made the return  trip from Grand Forks to West Robson  yesterday'..afternoon. On the inward  trip there were two coaches full of passengers, fully one-half of whom were  from Nelson. Nearly every wholesale  house in the city had a representative  aboard the train, which goes to show  that the local merchants do not propose  to lose their hold oir the new district  which the road'will open up to them.  It is predicted that the steel on the  Robsorr-Penticton branch will be laid into Greenwood inside of three weeks.  ��� P. Burns & Co.,, received- a-carload of  hams and bacons over the Crow's Nest  branch yesterday.  Frank G.

Estimates place  the entire number of Oddfellows in the  city at 50,000. At the session of the sovereign grand lodge today, little business  was done. When the call for new business was announced, so many propositions  were presented that all wore referred to  committees without reading,  Victoria Will Now Pay Up.

He said he was at the Perry  house on Sunday, when he was invited  by Perry to have several drinks. He did  not tender any money, but Perry volunteered the information that he would  not sell to anyone until he secured his  license.  The evidence of W. H. Bullock-Webster, chief license inspector for the Nelson license district, went to show that  Perry was carrying oir a regular business  in the disposal of liquors without a  license. Alice Perry, the wife of the defendant, having applied for a license for  the premises, he went down to inspect  them. He found a regular bar outfit  aiid a stock of beer, liquors, cigars and  glasses. He then proceeded to trace to  the Perry house a supply of liquors from  Nplson dealers dating back to September  1st. This evidence was objected toby  the defendant's counsel, and the inspector  then testified to having seen a keg .of  beer discharged from the steamer- International, which Perry admitted was-his  aud consigned to the premises.  Lawyer Lennox then asked the inspector whether- he had any personal  knowledge of any liquor* having been  sold on the Perry premises. The answer  came promptly: " I have never bought  any, but I have seen a great many-people1 who have."  The defence did not offer any evidence,  contending that as there had been no  sale or barter proven there was no  offence. In reply to this the inspector  stated that under the Act of 1899 the  gratuitous disposal of liquor in premises  for which a license had'been applied for,  but had not been granted, was an olfehec  under the act, the penalty!for which was  a fine of not less than $50, nor more  than $100. "'-     *��� ''-       _  When the ease was closed the magistrate said that it was common knowledge  that Perry was selling liquor without a  license and that he had been so selling  for a considerable time. Ho sentenced  the defendant to pay a fine of- $75, or iu  default to spend three months in jail.  The fine will be paid.  The Situation Seems to be Brighter.  The general situation  seems  to  bo  a  trifle brighter, and it is now believed that  most   of -the  mines in the Slocan will  resume   operations  on  or_ shortly after  October 1st.    The mine managers do not  like to acknoAvledge defeat, and the mine  workers are not doing any  unnecessary  crowing.    The latter have prrt up a much  better-fight than the fornier.    They have  appealed  to  public  opinion, and public  opinion has backed them  np.     On  the  other hand, the mine managers relied too  much on  tlieir supposed  influence  with  influential men   to help them out.    They  appealed to prominent men in  the  East  to-use-theii-iufluencet<rhaAe the~Domin-~  ion government'disallow  the  eight-hour  law; to others they appealed for help to  send miners here to take  the places of  the    men    who   refused   to   work   forth c   three-dollar-a-day    wage.    They  appealed       to        the       transportation  companies for special rates for men from  the East; but the answers were refusals.  They are now said to bo  willing  to pay  $-3.50 a day to good men,  provided  tliey  are  not  members  of the  union.     They  claim that  the;   men  are  not all   worth  $.'���5.50 a day.    The men will probably concede as-  much;   but  they say  that  the  niaiiagersaronotcompelled to keep in their  employ   men   who   are   not  worth   the  standard wage.     Were the  mines  that  are  closed   started  up, the  chances  are  that within three months the best miners  on   the  Pacific Coast   would    be  found  right here irr Kootenay.

When the department of justice  decided that the permit was valid the  department of the interior so advised  major Walsh, and he released the liquor,  but in the meantime Dewdney alleges  that tho price of whisky had fallen, and  he claims that he lost a portion of tho  profits which he otherwise might have  made. He now sues major Walsh for  damages. The government, of course,  stands behind major Walsh and will defend the action.  DREYFUS RECEIVES HIS PARDON  Dewdney Wants Big Damages.  Ottawa, September 19.���Hon. Edgar  Dewdney, who was manager of sir-  Charles Trrpper's Klondike company, is  suing major Walsh for $35,000 for keeping liquor* out of Yukon and the Northwest ou a permit which he had hist year.  The liquor got irr later but Mr.. Dewdney  claims this amount as damages. Sir Hib-  bert Tupper's firm is acting for Mr.  Dewdney.

The pardon will take  effect in a few days. Dreyfus has relinquished his appeal for a revisal of the  judgment of the court martial.  The situation is that the government  holds it impossible to reconcile absolute  justice with the interests of the country,  hence it seeks a via media for accepting  the verdict, while it is proposed to pardon  the prisoner at the earliest opportunity.  The government feels tliat it is impossible  to override the verdict arbitrarily, in view  of the enemies awaiting on all sides for  the first misstep,  A leading writer for the principal Dreyfusite journals say that, in addition to  the reasons sent from Rennes, it was  further impressed upon the judge who  ���was wavering as to his verdict, that:  Dreyfus insisted upon-beiug reinstated in  his regiment, that he be promoted to the  rank of major, and that he be granted a  decoration as compensation for his unmerited sufferings. Furthermore, it was  said that behind Dreyfus were all the  enemies of the French army, while all  the officers of the 'regiment"' to whom  Dreyfus was appointed would, immediately resign if he were reinstated.

Toronro Globe.  The position  with  regard to lead  in.  Canada   is   by   rro   means   satisfactory.  The possibilities for lead  production in  British Columbia aro very great, but the  handicaps  under  which the  business is  carried  on  make  it impossible to work  any but the richer deposits and  those in  which silver conies in to swell the values  to a  profitable  total.    The bulk of the  lead ore produced iu British Columbia is  smelted in the United States.  Our neighbors have fixed their tariff as  it  relates  to lead in much the same manner as obtains iu other cases  where  tliey do not  object to the raw product,  but discriminate against the more  highly  manufactured article.   The  position  is  not  exactly the same, however, as in  the cases  of nickel matte-or spruce and   pine  logs.  These are  on  the free  list;  lead ore is  subject to  a duty of li cents a pound,  while the duty on pig lead and   lead bullion is 2jJ. cents a pound.    There is a provision, however, that lead .may be smel ted  in bond, which greatly helps the smelter  interests in the  United  States,   it enables them to purchase ore in Canada and  Mexico, and after smelting and  refining  them  to sell  the  product  abroad,: thus  giving them a good  grip of the  world's  lead  markets, while not permitting the*  foreign ores to.compete with   the 'native'  article.   ���   .:'. - ._':' -. ;-i.'-r,''.::y:'-'--..  These are excellent .arrangements  for  the encouragement of silver-lead  mining  and smelting and refining in   the  United  States, but their effect is  to  make it especially difficult to establish  the smelting or refining industries in Canada. The ;  customs duty of 2^  cents  per  pound on  pig lead cuts us off completely  from the  American market.    The arrangement for  smelting in bond exposes us to  the  com-  petiorr of the product of our own  ores if  we seek to gain a footing in  the  foreign  ..market, and our own inarket is denied to  us for a reason that will be  readily seen.  The Canadian rniner, after having his ore  'smelted and refined in the United States,  cannot profitably, receive  it  back-over  the border again, for it is then subject to   :  the Canadian duty of 15  per  cent.   The  fact that the duty on lead  coming, from  England  is ��� 25 ' per  cent  less than if it;  came from the United States causes what-   3  may well be called a  fiscal  freak.    The  lead extracted from Canadian ores in the,y ,  United States .is sent to England, where yi-  it has free entryp.and then ityis  retiiriied&yy  S%iBvJthjs. iur^tisftrMl^ptMj^alfa1:r^  'k0^bj0-egM  e  ^Tho  ���ixb j||.n v(|lf|fetiJlfe r*Sr)jrg  #eserya^i$iiy^  ^rK't^'0^^  ���fating  ie#ripoti Wgf liteMfitr^^  19.���The Truth,  paper, protesting  condemnation of  the Dreyfus case,  ''tj&'an-';^  vtrM-mai-^^^^  Td-;'iicc��ffiplM:*- tlite ^^^^tf^^^^yf,  wofiid"' have to bje ��ri��:f!fe{l^  VM'teleri^'J^^  pfi-fc -ceii ti While JMd^rolip  from 25 per can't ;to'3Q--$&v'^  raised from S. per "pest.'.���'tp*. %0 \i(g'K:-i;eiJt^-:-^y_S.*:  IitiUti'^-*.rars.ed=.^  In addition to this the tariff woliM Jrav'e " ^  to be altered- so as ;t]0 put lead; ��titt*l:tiSd W . ^  Canada but refined iif the United States. :.;���*  on the free list. ,.o-'k  The proposition to i-'nisd tlie dirties Oh ...-'.'������'!  white lead, red lead and  lithai^ge is a,  serious ono.

The obstructive tactics  of the opposition, which sir Wilfrid  Laurier and his friends so piteously lament, did not defeat the government in  its intention of giving the C. P. R.'s partner, Mackenzie <& Mann, a million or so of  railway subsidies at the last session of  parliament. Equally impotent was tins  opposition's obstruction Avhen, for the  sake of purely party advantage, the  government spent weeks in securing the  passage of a redistribution bill. When it  was a case of serving the interests of the  party or the C. P. It. the government was  able to remove all the barriers an alleged  obstructive-government could rear. When  it came to a measure that would put the  C. i*. .1.1. out of the business of oppressing  towns in the west or of enacting anti-  (Jhiiiese legislation that would eat into  (J. P. .1?..

CUHUKNT I1ATK OK INTKl'tlCST PAID  THE    AUTHOR   AND    THE    ORIGINAL  of "David Haruiu."  ..liy Minnie 'Jean Nisbet of Haniilton.    "  A 1-oeeirfc review says tluit "David  ITai'iun" lias had the gi-oiifccsfc-sule of any  book Avliieh lias been published in Ainci-i-  ea. Within six months of its appearance  about; two hundred thousand copies Jind  been sold, and the demand continues to  be as great as ever. This seems to prove  the truth so often stated by publishers  and doubted by writers, that the fact of  an author- being known or unknown has  no weight; that a good article.will always find a market. Mr. Wesfccott was  unknown to the literary world, and had  no influence in that line, and yet he  achieved the greate3t success of any modern novelist.  Edward Nbyes\Westcott, the author of  "David Harutn," was born in Syracuse,  N. Y., September' 3rd, LS-17, and died  there, of consumption, March 31st, 1898.  His father, Dr. Amos Westcott, was one  ofthe loading* citizens of that city. Jle  was a surgeon dentist, and performed  many wonderful operations in altering  the shape of jaws. etc. People came  from all over the United States to be  treated by him. One gentleman brought  his daughter, a. young girl of great  beauty (the only drawback being her  lower jaw, which was shaped like that of  a dog).' Dr. Wesfccott gradually pressed-  otit the .jaw by'means of instruments,  and when hor father caine to take her  Home all trace of her deformity had disappeared. Without asking for his bill ho  wrote a chock for $1000, which he said  was given with gratitude. Dr. Westcott  used to take a cast of her mouth and jaw  every morning, to sec what change there-  was, and he showed them all to the"  writer's Father, ile was also a fine geologist, and was a state authority on that  subject. Jle was mayor of-Syracuse during the civil Avar,  Edward Noyes Wostcofct "was head of'  the firm of AVestcott & Abbott, bankers  -and brokers. In persona] appearance lie  av-ik tall and slender, with a graceful  figure, and handsome intelligent face, his  smile being cordial and his manner majestic aird attractive. He married a Miss  Jane Dows of Ca/enovia, New York, avIio  died in 1890/ leaving three children���Harold, Violet, and Philip. He was a fine  musician, .and had a superb baritone  Aroiee, and possessed considerable talent  for musical and poetic composition, having published a number of songs of Avhich  lie composed the words and music. The  trials  of John  Lonnox_iii_theJIomcA"illo  universal   necessity   in   those   days.    He  had variousojlatent rights, among them  one  for a churn  Avhich he sold for five  thousand   dollars.    During   my  father's  boyhood   both  Dr.   AVestcott  and   Dave  flannuin   were  constant   visitors  to  his  father's house, and both have been guests  at our home in   Haniilton.    Mr. Hannum  was merely a suggestion of the character  of "David  Harum."    J To aviis better educated and more refined; used no dialect  such as Harum did, but he had the same  humorous, pithy way of expressing himself.    He used to say of certain inhabitants of Scolt, a neighboring village, that  "tliey avoi-o so narrow fourteen could sit  on   a   buggy   seat and   not   cover   the  cushion."    He used to call the flax-pickers on the hills "sidehillers," and insisted  that     their     occupation     had      given  to each of them one leg shorter than the  other.    It is said only one man ever got  the better of Hannum in a horse trade.  He sold  a kicking horse to a neighbor,  Avho,   in   turn,   sold   it    to   postmaster  Dwighfc Miller.    He.trimmed the horse's  mane and tail, clipped  the breast, and  sold it back to Hannum.    His comments,  Avhen he learned the fact are not recorded.  In a letter written not long before his  death, Mr.  Westcott  says:    "If 'David  Harunr' Avere to be published even Avithout much delay, it would in all probability be posthumous.    I  have had the fun  of writing  it anyway,  and nobody will  ever laugh over'it more than I have.    I  never could tell Avhat Da Add Avas going to  do next."   I think these particulars will  be of interest to readers of Tiie Tribune,  Big Sc(]oon,er  Beer or Half=  and=i-falf....  the book is so -widely known. It is said  the sales now average one thousand a  day. It seems very pathetic Avhen one  reads the book to think of its being Avrit-  ten as a solace to the man Avho avjis suffering the agonizing pain of that dread  disease, consumption, and who kneAv that  only death could end his pain.  I forgot to say that Dave Ilannirm Avas  very charitable, .and avjis fond of doing  odd things. AVlreir travelling shows  came to Homer, he Avould buy tickets for  every poor boy in the village. A few of  David's sayings Avould make a good book  of proverbs:  "Do unto the other feller the AA.iy he'd  like to do unto you, and do it fust."  "Some feller said, 'Fannin' was workin'  all day .and doin' chores all night.' "  "The air of out home Ava'aut cal'ljited  to rjiiso heroes in." 0  Tho AvidoAV Ciillom'f. idea of champagne  is original: ''Well, it tastes jis if I avjis  drinkin' cider and snuffm' horseradish at  the same time."  "You" c'n pump him dry in a day or  tAvo. It luiint rained Avisdom and knoAV-  Jedgc iu his part of the country fer a considerable spell."

The cable of general Otis informing the  secretJtry of AV.-ir that at Aguinaldo's request his representatives avouM bo .allowed through the American lines for a  conference Avith general Otis regarding  the release of American prisoners avjis  laid before the meeting by secretary Root  and discussed ab some length. Alluding  to general Otis' despatch regarding si  conference Avitli the insurgents, three of  the cabinet agreed in expressing their  opinion that too much significance should  riot be attached to Aguiiutldo's proposal.  Secretary Root himself said that so many  similar conferences in the past had come  to naught that he doubted very much  whether this one meant anything toward  the establishment of peace and good order in the islands.

Ahout S.'.O o'clock last evening the fire  department received a call to the residence of \V. \V. ]}eer, on the corner of  .Silica and Ifendryx streets. Mr. Beer,  while chopping some kindling in tin*  basement, broke a coal oil lamp Avhich  AA-as setting on the stairs, and the oil  escaping upon some shavings started a  fin;. The blaze Avas extinguished before  the firemen got to the premises, although  they made very good time up the hill.  Tho early closing movement of the  merchants of Nelson may be regarded as  a thing of the past for tlie present year.  Those who haA'e complied with the early  closing agreement complain that others  are gradually extending their hours of  business. Jacob Dover has decided to  break away from the movement and announces that from this on his,jewelry  store will be open iu the evenings until  8.���'���!') o'clock.  .lohn Ivirkup of liossland, avIio is  assessor* and collector for the iN'elson and  liossland ridings, yesterday commenced  the Avork of making rip the roll for the  Nelson riding.

There is more lumber- sold in Nelson  than in any other- town in British Columbia. .1. A. SayAvard, one of five  dealers, "will dispose of three million feet  this year, proAn'ding there is- no setback  this fall. When it is taken into consideration that tho lumber sold at the  Say ward yard is all transported to Nelson from Pilot Bay, the amount handled  is not so small for* a country town.  . There Avill be a meeting of the board of  trade at five o'clock on Thursday at the  board rooms to consider an invitation to  the board to attend the Spokane fruit  fair in a body.  "Tliey had better spend the money for  brains, and they AAront lnwe to pay out so  much for freight charges," Avas the AAray  a Avell-knowu hotclman pub ib, when told  that the organ of the mine owners' union  intended to spend $10,000 on new., plant.

They  have relief on board capable of forming  a naval brigade of 1000 men.     Summons  were   issued   late   this  afternoon   for  a  cabinet council,.which   it   is   understood  will be held on l-Yhlay.    This is regarded  as the result of the visit of lord Salisbury  (���<> IiOinlon, whence   he  came   this  afternoon, remaining at the foreign office from  ���I:.'���() p.m. to (1:2() p.m.     The  secretary of  state for the colonies was present iu the  building   at  the   same   time,   and  as  a  private doonvay connects   the   offices, it  is presumed   that the  summonses Avere  the result of their quiet deliberation. Tho  lack of all  excitement  in official  circles  bears evidence of the deliberate manner  in which the highest officials are handling  the crisis.    Nor is ib by any  means  certain that the cabinet council  will  adopt  extreme measures, in spite of the uncompromising nature of the Boer reply. This  deliberation on the   part of  the  government is interpreted not only in  London  but in other European capitals as a. desire  on the parr, of Great Britain to gain time  while the transports are hurrying to Cape  Colony.    The Berliner Ruestenachrichten  commenting  on  this today says:    "Tho  present  calm  is  only meant to deceiA'e  the Boers.    When England feels equal to  the task of facing the Boers this peaceful  tone Avill giA-e way to a blatant cry for  Avar."    Even   rumors  of a movement of  the  Boers  across  the Natal border apparently fails to excite the  military  authorities here, avIio profess at least not to  fear  such   contingency for the present.  ���In the meantime the movement of troops  continues.
