With Great Britain.
London, September 0.—Mr. Chamberlain remained at the foreign ollice until
shortly before midnight. He declined to
make a statement regarding the Transvaal situation, but expressed a desire to
see a copy of tlie following transcript of
the Transvaal government's reply, issued
by the Transvaal agent in Brussels tonight, Avliieh was furnished to him by
the Associated Press. In reply to the
dispatch of the British government the
Transvaal government on Saturday
handed the British agent at Pretoria a,
response, of wliich the following is the
purport: The government of the South
.African republic regrets ('rent Britain is
of opinion tliat. it is unable I'.o accept the
proposals made by the Transvaal dispatches of August H' and 21st, by which
the term for obtaining the .-franchise was
fixed at live years and the representation
of the Witwaters and district was included. The government regrets the more,
as it considered itself warranted in deducing from the negotiations previous to
its formal proposals, that the latter would
be accepted by the British government.
In these conditions the Transvaal considers its proposals are annulled and
finds it necessary to .submit them to the
Volksraadt and the people. It remains
of the opinion that its proposals tiro
extremely liberal and more extensive
than those presented by the British high
c .tninissioner tit Bloemfontein. It is also
of the opinion that the conditions
attached to these proposals tire reasonable. The Transvaal never desired Great
Britain to abandon any rights possessed
by A'irtue of international law. The
Transvtial still hopes that these declarations will lead to a good understanding
and solution of the existing difficulties.
With regard to the question of suzerainty, the Transvaal government refers
to.the dispatch of April Kith, .1 SOS,, and
considers it unnecessary to repeat that
The reply then proceeds to say :    "The
government'has already, made known to
the  British   agent   its  objections to accepting the   proposals  contained in   the
British high   commissioner's   telegram of
August 2nd, suggesting the appointment
, of delegates to draw   up a, report on the
last   electoral   law   A'otcd   by the volks-

Development of the Wilcox.
The Broken Hill Mining and DoA'elop-
mont Company has a comprehensive programme iu hand for the development of
its properties in the vicinity of Ymir, tho
most promising of which are the Wilcox
and the Fourth of July. claims. The
shaft on the Fourth of July claim, adjoining the Wilcox and OAvned by the
same company, is on the same vein tis No.
2 tunnel on the Wilcox. This tunnel has
now been driA'en 255 feet and it is
the intention of the company to dri\'e it
another 700 feet, Avhen it Avill reach the
ore chute on Avhich the Fourth of July
shaft is sunk. This shaft is down (50 feet
and has opened up a fine chute of, ore,
consisting of galena and oxides mixed.
Two average samples taken across four
feet in this shaft gave respectively r$85
and .$90 in gold and silver per ton. When
the Wilcox No. 2 tunnel has reached be-
Ioav the shaft a large body of high grade

Tunnel No. 1 is now in 340 feet and a
raise has been made to tlie surface, a dis-
ttmce of 110 feet, from a point 300 feet
from the mouth of the tunnel. A shaft
has also been sunk to a depth of 00 feet
below this raise, making a total depth
from the surface of 170 feet. Another
tunnel will be driven below this to connect AA'ith this winze, Avhen another large
body of ore Avill have been developed.

John Weiler Dies in Victoria.
Victoria, September (5.—John Weiler.,
the founder of the firm of Weiler Bros,
of this city, died this morning as the result of illness extending over six mouths.
He avjis in his 7(5th year. Mr. Weiler
came to America Avhen a young man from
Mayence, Hesse-Darmstadt, settling first
in the state of New York. He joined in
the rush to the gold fields of California
in 1850, and. in 1801 drifted north to

ment'sactionin A-etoingBritish Columbia's
anti-Mongolian legislation. He said that
at the next session the matter Avould
come up again. If the government then
refused to do anything the people A\rouItl
htive to. take the matter in their oavu
hands. It was a serious thing to counsel
violence, but there Avould be no other
course open to them. The text of tho
resolution passed by the Nanaimo people
is as follows:
"Resolved—That   this  meeting   vieAvs
with    alarm     the    recent    decision    by
tho  privy  council,  which   pronounces it
ultra vires for the provincial government
to  legislate against the  employment of
Chinese.    That   Ave belieA'e  that   unless
the Dominion government  aids, the  provincial authorities  by enacting  legislation AA'hich Avill restrict oriental immigration an incalculable injustice Avill be done
to the.labor and to the business interests
of the country.    That the Dominion government and the people of the  east  generally do  not  seem  to  be aware of the
gravity of  the  situation, and  that  it is
necessary for us iu  British  Columbia to
initiate missionary  Avork  in  the  east to
open   their  eyes.    Therefore  Ave   pledge
ourselves to support morally and  financially any scheme looking to the  accomplishment of the above aims, and would
recommend that one or more able speakers  be  sent to  the  east and supported
there in active campaign along  the suggested lines.

at this moment the negotiations  are still
running, and therefore it cannot be said
that tin arrangement  has  been   reached.
It is still possible for  the Avhole scheme

the result is made public, that the United
States  has   secured  a   majority of the
points in contention, and that the opposition has made concessions of the greatest importance.    But one of the difficulties of the situation is that the  department is excluded from  making that fact
officially knoAvn out of regard for the obstacles that Avotdd be  placed iu the way
of an  agreement by  those elements  in
Canada  and  this  country who  are opposed to any sacrifices.

Great Britain has rejected Canadian dictation and abandoned the Canadian
claims in the Alaskan affair.

or to send a deposition, or what is considered still more probable, to iiIIoav his
deposition to be accompanied by the
actual documents mentioned in the bordereau, then Dreyfus is saved. If tho
emperor, however, decides that • it is not.

Justice Drake's Judgment Upset.
VlGTOKiA. September O.—Tho full court
today aliuA. ed the appeal For a new trial
in the pack train case of Bord vsVeifch, on
tlir grounds that justice Drake erred at
the trial in '(..during tlie defendant's
exclusion from the court while the plaintiffs case Avas being given. Tlie court
decided as follows: "In our judgment the
parties to tin action have the right to be
present during the trial, unless some good
reason is shown Avhy any of them should
bo excluded, and tlie mere circumstance
that these defendants Avould, or might,
be called as Avitnesses did not entitle the
plaintiff to require their exclusion. It is
sufficient for the disposition of this appeal
that no reason whatever avjis even suggested for the exclusion other than the
plaintiffs supposed'right to call for it.

Duke of Orleans Would Make Trouble.
London, Septeniber 7.—The Paris correspondent of. the Daily Telegraph, referring to the report Avhich the public
prosecutor will submit to the senate,
sitting as a high court, to try the persons
charged with conspiring to bring about
a. change in the form of government,
says: "The report will include Avritteu
evidence of a collusion between the a-nti*
Semites and royalists. A letter from the
duke of Orleans to M. Andre Buffet has
been seized, proving that the pretender
lias been subsidising and fomenting the -
labor agitation with a view of provoking
the government to call out the troops aud
thus produerog a-revolutionavy outbreak.

WEIR  Daily Kdition Fjiist Ykak, No. 210  Wekkt.v Kdition Seyknth Vkau, No. :j:i  "Sjnc'I'* the eight-hour law. has been en-  foi-ecd much litis been heard from mine  managers in Nelson, avIio oerasionully  , visit London, of the paralyzing effect  which such legislation must inevitably  have upon the investment of British  capital inj the mines of tliis province.  Those avIio ai'c not in touch with conditions as they exist in London are unable to reply convincingly to such assertions, and consequently tlie statements of  -the"mine managers htive been alloAvcd to  co almost unchallenged. Fortunately,  -for those who desire to arrive tit the  truth of these assertions, there is in  Nelson at the present time a man who  can lay claim to being a mining broker.  His name is .J. If. IJroomhead and he is  travelling through Kootenay as the  representative of The Statist, a financial  paper rather well known, Mr, Broom-  head      among      other      things      is     a  &  Headquarters for  FIRST-CLASS BUILDING MATERIAL  Wo make a specially of  Sfyplap aqd Double Dressed Material  Good Dry Rustic and Flooring  Shingles arjd Lath Kept in Stock  Ofllco and yard near C.P.R. depot   K. Q, BKKI. Agent.  member of the firm of Linnsden <fc  Myers, Avho do business in London as  mining brokers, nnd when it is slated  that they employ a sin IT of seventy-three  clerks" in their office, it can readily be  imagined that tliey do a fairly large  business. Yestei day Mr. Broomhead-Avas  asked Avhat effect the eight-hour laAv had  had in London. His reply avjis that ho  liad not heard anything about ir>. lie  then asked Avhat the law aviis, and Avas  informed that it Avas tin enactment of  the legislature Avhich limited the period  of Avork in the mines for miners to eight  hours in the tAventy-fonr. The ansAver  came as a surprise to the questioner. His  surprise A\-as that miners in British Columbia mines ever Avorked more than  eight hours. His company, he stud, had  had considerable experience Avith mining  in Ncav Zealand and a. the Cape and  eight-hour shifts had been recognized  there for years. If an eight-hour shift  AviiJ not ruin mining in New Zealand or  at the Cape, it is rather difficult to nn-.  dbrStand Avhy it .should; do. so in Ivootenay,  Ji? the members of the Melnnes family  =ai'e=uot-AveIl%nOAV'irin=British-6\jiuinbia'  it Avill not be due to any inactivity on  their part. The daddy of the family  earned a name for himself by dismissing  Turner, POoley <fc Co. from office, to accomplish which, they say, he gave to the  Old British; Constitution a black eye.  Then the son, and private secretary to  his honor, tlie father, avou fame by Ids  contributions, to the political literature  of the province, lit which lie demonstrated thatthe Mel lines avCi-c all right  and everyone else all wrong.     The other  boy is haA'ing his innings over again iioav.  A while ago he offered to save the province from impending ruin* but reckless  old 13. C. would not haA'e it- Now he is  to the front again. He is going to s_we  tho province from Laurier and the Chinese���that is if the people of thcproA'incc  Avill recognize him as their stwior and  pay due homage to the great family of  Melnnes.  It is reported from the Coast that  Forbes George Vernon Avill re-cuter pro-  A'incitil politics and endetiA'or to patch  together the pieces of the late Turner  party. The ex-commissioner and agent-  general is spoken of tis the leader of the  Opposition forces.  Defeat Sometimes a Good Thing.  Since .Spain lost her colonies in an experience which showed that she Avtis  sadly deficient in modern methods, she  has begun a iioav life, and the reports are  that not for years haA'e her industries exhibited the actiA'ity that they are sIioav-  ing today. It aviis a hard and costly  lesson for her people, but from all  accounts they have taken it severely to  heart, and htive begun to catch up.  A more interesting instance is that of  China. After she discovered that a firecracker Avar did not belong to the nineteenth century, and had paid many  millions to Japan, for her ignorance and  blindness, she opened her eyes to the  needs of the hour, and thus avc read  almost every day of some great Lchange in  the vast empire.  That the Chinese AA'all AA'as to be torn  down AA'tis, of course, an amusing fiction,  but in a figurative sense the Avail is being  torn doAvn. and commerce and capital are  being AA'elcomcd to parts of the country  which have hitherto been closed to civilization. New railroads are being projected, telegraph lines are being built,  cotton mills are 'increasing, and modern  industry is preparing many vast enterprises. The Chinese government is buying armor-clads, and cruisers, and field  guns. It may yet be that the jellyfish of  nations Avill get rid of its inertness and  join in the swim of progress.

Tli�� state capitol coinniissiou of Arkansas has decided to establish a plant for  ^the^iuaiinfaeture^of^the^brick^necessary"  for the construction of a new state house  to be built in the near future. In this  way tlie state wilt furnish work to a large  number of laborers and secure tlie ueces-  . ary material at the lowest possible cost.  According to the Ncav York World,  United States officials at Havana lire alleged to be utilizing the Cuban revenues  to maintain themselves in Jujcury, the receipts derived froni the taxation of the  Cubans being spent freely "to preserve  the dignity of tlie position'"' of those  charged Avith the duty of supervising the  Americtui occupation of tho country.  Mr. 1*. J. Morgan iii ah article in tlie Atlanta Constitution, says: "As an illustration of the manner in Avhicli the farmers of tlie country liave lost heretofore,  it is only necessary to repeat a statement  recently made by Mr. Hestei:, of New Orleans, that out of an annual cotton, receipt of one million three hundred bales  in that city over thirty-seven thousand  bales Avere made up out of samples Avhich  had been ruthlessly plucked from the  bales by the men who handled them,  which should have gone into tlie parishes  of Louisiana."  The Arkansas hot springs supply a conclusive example of the benefits of government OAvnership of land and a\ .iter. Instead of selling or giving, them away, four  sections (2040 acres) of laud, of which 800  acres has been laid out as a park, has  been reserved and held by the government. The Avater rents are used to improve this reservation. The springs yield  9,500,000 gallons daily. .

The Successful Author dropped in at  the club and looked around for some one  to Avhom he might talk shop. He spied  the Timid Aspirant in the corner and asked him to sit down. The Timid Aspirant  blushed till over, and felt that better  days Avere dawning for him because the  .Successful Author's name Avas in every  one's mouth.  "Have much trouble to sell your stuff,  my boy?"  "Oh, I suppose I oughtn't to complain."  "Never destroy a manuscript, my boy.  You don't, do you?"  "Sometimes, sir."  "Ah, don't. You never know when it  Avill become valuable. Anything Avritten  has its niche somewhere."  Then the Successful Author sank back  in his armchair and continued reminis-  cently: "I'll never forget Iioav one of my  articles fared. It Avas the fourth or fifth  thing that I had written aud it Avas called The Father of Santa Glaus. I liked it  better than any editor has ever liked  anything of mine."  . The Timid Aspirant nodded sympathetically, and the Successful Author continued: "I sent it to The Prospect and  it came back promptly. Did I destroy it?  Not at all. I pigeonholed it, and next  year I sent it to them again. Again it  came back/and once more I laid it to rest  for a twelvemonth and then bombarded  The Prospect Avith it. This sort of .thing  went on for several years, until at last,  to save time, the editor had a special  form of rejection printed for it that ran  about as follows:       " '���' _.'������'���������    .

It may relate to plumbing, or to  dry goods, or to painting, ot: to babies,  but it is of the shop, as a rule,  only literary shop talk,' as Ford calls it,  is more interesting to tin, outsider than  the other kinds. What particular de-  paf tn lent of our shop did you want me to  handle?"  "I wanted' to ask you if you believed iii  cutting .-a man's avo. k���in other, words, do  you believe in blue-penciling?"  "Ah, my boy, I see tliat they have been  coloring your manuscript with the hate  ful crayon. No, I don't belieAre iii it. I  dislike it iioav because it mars liiy work,  and I used to hate it because it took  money from my purse. Let me tell you  a little incident.  "One time years ago I AATote an article,  and after it AA'as done I figured on Avhat I  Avould get for it and with it. If I sold it  to a certain monthly I had in mind I  should receive enough to buy a new hat,  a neAV suit, a pair of shoes, ditto of socks  and a necktie, for all of Avhich I stood in  sore need. I hied me forth in all the exuberance of youth and bore my manuscript to the editor. As he AA'as feeling  good, he said he AA'ould read it Avhile  I AA'aited. At last he laid it doAvn and  said, 'That's a pretty good story.' My  heart leaped like an athlete. 'But,'���my  heart stoped leaping and listened���'itAvill  need a little cutting, and I'll do it iioav if  you Avish."  "Poor felloAA'," said the Timid Aspirant  sympathetically.  "Well, the first thing that editor did  Avas to cut the socks off of it; then he  made a deep incision in the hat; then he  slashed away at tho trousers and did  some scattered cutting, and at last handed the manuscript to me that I might see  the havoc he had Avrought in my prospective Avardrobe. Dear man, I had a  vest and necktie left, and that Avas all.  And it Avould have been the same if it had  been my dinner."  The Timid Aspirant shuddered.  "Many a young author has seen the  soup and the vegetables, and at last the  steak fade aAvay under the terrible obliterating poAver of the indigo crayon,  and lucky is he if a saiuhvich and a glass  of AA'ater remain after the editor's fell  Avork. Blessed is that editor Avho does  not care to Avork in pastel���to Avjioni the  blue pencil is taboo���for he shall be held  in honored remembrance of all Ayriters  and his end shall be peace."
