 THAT DREYFUS WILL GO FREE  Is Not Considered Probable.   .  RKNNK.S. September 8.���That captain  Dreyfus will bo condemned is tlio almost  universal opinion hoard in Rennes tonight. Hitherto there has always been  a divergence, but now both camps, the  Dreyfusards and the an ti-Dreyfusards,  seem to be unanimous in the conviction  that the verdict will go against him.  Upon just what grounds this is based,  and the precise reason for their conclusion are a mystery, but there is no disguising the fact that from iM. Ltthori  down to the numerous Dreyfusards who  crowd the hotels and cafes, and who last  night were still hopeful that Dreyfus  would be saved, all seem now to agree  that his last chance is gone.  Tho  one  source  of   hope   is M. Labori  himself,   who said   this  evening:     "We  fear  that  captain   Dreyfus   wiil be condemned, but we don't intend to throw up  the sponge.     We shall go on fighting for  him."    M. Jauaurs,   the  Socialist leader,  tind   other   prominent   Dreyfusards expressed a similar opinion.    Excitement is  at fever heat,  aud   nothing is discussed  but   the   verdict  of   the morrow.    Tlio  military  precautions  tire of tlio most elaborate character, and no attempt at disorder is likely to have the slightest success.    Orders    have     been     issued     to  repress     any     symptom     of      trouble  with   tin    iron    hand.      A   small   anti-  Semitic mooting was held here this evening, and the complete calm that prevails  is an indication of a quiet day tomorrow.  A strong force of gendarmes guarded the  approaches  to   the  building   where   the  meeting was held and the orders were to  arrest the first man who raised a seditious  cry. Nothing, however, occurred. Indoor1,  the  inhabitants, of   the   town   seem   indifferent and  tlie   neighborhood  of   the  Lycee and the prison is deserted, save for  a few gendarmes.  The news of the publication of count  Von Buelow's speech in the Roichstans-  y.ciger reached Rennes tonight and is  considered very important on tho ovc of  a verdict wliich, in some quarters, it is  thought, will be regarded tis a' slight by  Germany if it be a condemnation, as being  'tantamount to a public refusal to take  the word of emperor William, as his minister is merely his mouthpiece. According  to the latest report, the verdict may be  delivered between 3 and 5 o'clock tomorrow morning, the court adjourning after  M. Demange's speech until-3, o'clock.

Tho lieutenant-governor���probably  because he  would  not  listen to the demands of these  writers  that  lit!  should  adopt an arbitrary and unconstitutional  course���is now deliberately charged with  manipulating public affairs   in   order to  advance the political fortunes of a near  relative."   He is held  up to public scorn  and contempt by  assertions   that   he  is  guided by tho advice���not of his responsible ministers, but of the members of his  own family, to Avhom  he  is  represented  as  giving  that   full   information   on  all  'matters of state which is supposed to be  confined   within   the   four   walls  of the  council   chamber.      Has  anything  more  disgraceful been seen in  the columns of  the     provincial     press    in     the    past.  We    think     not,    and    we    should    be  very   much    surprised     if    this    style  of       political       warfare       does       not  bring down on the heads  of  those  who  liave   originated   it,   a  chastisement as  signal as it  is   deserved.    The highwayman is a character  that calls  for   some  respect compared with these  journalistic  assassins, who  stab in the  back  a  high  official     like    the    lieutenant-governor,  knowing his position makes it impossible  for him to defend himself.    Not only our  public men, but  the  members  of their  families and their friends,  are  also considered   as   affording   opportunities for  wounding those on whom these cowardly  assailants desire to wreak their spite.  Wo are, however, coufideut that in the  ranks of tho Opposition���among Conservatives and Liberals alike���a'ro many wlio  view such actions as these of their two  journalisticsupporters with disgust, while  tliey must also be convinced that such a  style of political controversy will assuredly alienate many of those now iu the  ranks of their party.

It has been proved beyond   the  possibility of doubt that interviews published' in  tlie cdhimns of these newspapers had no  other foundation  than   thp attempt of  some penny-liner to niako a. few dollars  by pandering to tlie demands of his employers  to furnish  material to support  their statements,    hi one ease it has been  shown that the gentleman with whom an  interview  was published  had never spoken to the reporter; in another  the person   interviewed   has  declared   that  he  never uttered the statements attributed  to  him.    But notwithstanding  this, the  substance of'these interviews is made to  serve as the text of ''editorial articles in  the hope that some of the mud thrown  may stick.  The last few days have, however, developed a state of things which, while  new to this province���and, we think, to  the Dominion���discloses a lower journalistic level to have been reached than we  should have thought possible even with  the incidents which have lately been witnessed. We are accustomed in a certain  class of newspapers to read disgraceful  and calumnious attacks on members of  the government or of the legislature.  But it was not until the two opposition newspapers ventured on it  a few days ago that the representative of the crown���the lieutenant- governor of tho province���had ever  been made a target for abuse.

New Drnvbr, September 8.���Several  mine mtinagors passed through here on  their way home from attending tho mooting at .Sandon on Tuesday, among them  being J. Roderick Robertson of Nelson.  They would have little to say about their  deliberations, or the results arrived at,  stating that they were all pledged to  secrecy. However, they were till unanimous in denying that any caucus of  the association of mine owners had been  held hist week, other reports to the contrary notwithstanding. One party when  asked as to the results of the meeting,  stated that he thought the situation was  even worse now than before. Another  vouchsafed that very little business was  transacted, but the secrecy pledge debarred him from saying what. It is a  big mistake, he added, tothink that this  present difficulty is a struggle between  the mine Owners and the miners, for tho  latter were truly the best friends of the  employers. It was rather a struggle and  quarrel between the mine owners and  the government, the latter being entirely  in the wrong, .in,.making the'iniquitous  eight-hour law.  Despite these protestations, however,  the feeling amounts almost to a conviction and a certainty that the mines are  about to resume operations, and that by  October 1st everything will be in. full  swing. On every hand there are tangible  signs of this, and each creek and section  of the camp affords evidences of preparations being made for winter operations.  One point, to wit, the Queen Bess. They  have increased their bunkhouse and  boarding accommodation, and put things  into better shape. Moreover, Avoid  comes from their London house this week  that a new 2000 foot tunnel is to be commenced at once on the property, which  will take ayear to complete. In the meantime the mine.is to ship '100 tons per  month steadily while the new tunnel is  being driven.

London", September 8.���The cabinet  council here today attracted greater public interest than any meeting of the ministers for years past. A well dressed  crowd of people cordially greeted most of  the prominent cabinet ministers and impatiently thronged tho precincts of the  foreign office throughout the session.  The first indication of .'impossible decision  of the cabinet came from the stock exchange, where the markets recovered on  the report that the ministers had decided  not to send an ultimatum to tho government of the Transvaal, but to insist that  the Transvaal must agree to si conference  at Cape Towu, but it is too early yet to  pretend to give this as definite information of the action contemplated' or to be  taken.  The council was marked by absolute  unanimity, and in spite of a lack of official information and the presence of much  corroborative evidence thatthe question  is less strained, there is no sign of any intention to convene parliament, and no  immediate necessity exists to call out the  reserves. It is probable, however, that  the appeals from the government of Natal Avill result in the dispatch of a large  body of troops from England and India  to Cape Colony.  Tlie Times, in its second edition today  published a dispatch from Mafeking  which said: "Colonel Baden-Powell will  review the troops at Raniathlabara  tomorrow. Large numbers of Boers aro  moving about the border near there.  There is an uneasiness over the number  of the Transvaal Dutch here. It is feared  they might join the invaders in case of a  raid,  Amsterdam, September 8.���The members of the Dutch Transvaal commission  haA'e cabled to queen Victoria, imploring  her "in the name of humanity and God's  kingdom to preserve peace."  ; London, Septeniber 8.���Mr. Montague  White, the consul general of the South  African republic in London, said to a re  in  the float "Peace" and accompany  the Oiynipia nil the harbor* ;and sing  hymns and songs of welcome. _?eijera.i  Roe has received tippl. eatioils for places"  hi the land pai'Acle from a brigade of New  Jersey militia from 1;500 to 2000; strong.

This  title was afterwards seen to be aja'ayiug  capital too strongly against labor, following closely upon the heels of the aiu  liounceiiiont of the $._��� day, so they  changed it to the present_api'ielUVtiOii of  the Sloeau Milies Association. At "first  the owners were loud in their 'denunciation of tlie nieu and union ttictics, asserting' that hos.ts of laborers were easily obtainable .elsewhere. Failse telegrams  were sent to, and erroneous statements  made in. vtii'ious nliniiig sections of Canada, in tlie hope of securing men, but till  to no effect.. Now the owners come  down humbly, and state that the minors  are their best friends, and that tile labor  troubles are due to the government  alone.  The assertion also has been frequently  made in newsaper interviews that tlie  Slocan niines weie in the luinds of  Americans, hence the strike. This is contrary to facts, as witness the following  properties controlled ill either Canada or  Great Britain. The Whitewater, Ruth,.  Dardanelles, Rambler-Cariboo., Wclling-  ton, Payne, Queen Bess, Idaho, Bosun,  Wakefield, Vancouver, Enterprise, Com-  stock aud a number oi others. The fact  is, the mine owners see they must give  in and pay the $3.50 scale, but they want'  to let themselves down easy.  Ball Games Yesterday.  .Syracuse 9, Rochester 4.

Emperor William  in  responding  to  the  toast, congratulated the grand duke upon'.:?  the brilliant achievements  of  the  Fourteenth army corps, and indulged  in  historical     reminiscences,    lamenting *  the  absence of the heroes who led   the corps  twenty years ago.    "Ours  is the task,"  said     his   majesty,   "to    maintain   the  inheritance they have left  us.      Today's   :  parade is a source of pride to our people  and country and ah admonition for other  lands.

The effect of the new treaty is to put  Japan on tho same plane as the other nations of tho Avorld, and to make foreigners amenable to Japanese Laws, and to  open the whole country to trade. To  think that a half-century ago Japan was  leading a hermit life, and that she was  practically forced to trade with the  world, is to recall one of the most wonderful awakenings in history, for there  can be no doubt as to the intelligence,  capacity and position of the Japanese  people, or tis to their progress in industry, commerce and education. Japan is  now rocogniy.ed as one of the powers of  tho earth. Her now life shows progress  in all directions.  BANK OF  B. O.  BUILDING,  NELSON.  te-r'M's o_s_s_3:  #  NELSON HARDWARE CO.

"I   refer,   of  course,   to   the  cheap garments that   in  this section   are  sold -almost  entirely to  the negroes.    A pair of  'pants'   of that  grade contains twelve pieces, the outlines  of which tire represented  by slits in the  top of a heavy  table.    Twenty-four sections of cloth are laid on the table, and a  revolving knife  like  a .buzz-saw travels  through the slits.    As it does so it  cuts  the fabric into the  exact  patterns.    Tho  whole thing is done with incredible swiftness, and the pile of cloth is  scarcely deposited when it is fully cut.    The  pieces  tiro thou sent on an electric, carrier to the  sewing machines, which arc also run  by  a motor.    Each  operative has only one  thing to do.

The buttonholes are worked  by machinery, and as a rule the buttons themselves  are of the automatic staple  variety and  are secured by a single  motion of  a sort  of punch.   It is very interesting to watch  the garment passing from hand  to hand,  and ib reaches the inspector all complete  with a  celerity  that  nearly  takes one's  breath away.

Tho eablo news  of   the   reinstatement  . of  colonel Geot'ges   Picf.uart   make   that  distinguished soldief an   ob.jeet of  great  interest.

His persecution aiid suffering at  ; the hands of tho  anti-Dreyl'nsites  liave  ! but served to demonstrate  him   to   be a  : hero of the noblest   type.    Many  of the  : tales told respecting the conspiracy which  tried to add him to its list of victims are  now becoming public.  When Picquart started tlie movement  tending toward a retrial of the Dreyfus  case the general stall* aviis filled with  alarm. They only saw one way out of  the difficulty, and that was to get rid of  the fearless and truth-loving officer. He  was removed from his office in November, .1890, and sent away upon tin important mission, the inspection of the frontier regiments in the west of France. He  was hampered with orders which required him to give all his time aud  thought to his work. The 'moment he  performed his task he was sent to the  southern and sautlieastern frontier.  Thence he was rushed on during the unhealthy season to'Algiers, .Tunis and  Tripoli, and was required to devote most  ir of his time to those places where .Euro-  |:feppti;u^dic��'fr1��'^the' ' "  " " "  |;",,re��sG'��4"'ftis: ".1'Ko.ii  ViMxM'x^xfij\lfj^fM^xi4i iaMS^Bi y/j  |>^:'JCli_4=a1.6jispiAtbl30'fe - sbu|.:fliliui'*ihtb*  I3.$lifgiu^  L sfayage-."

'But you should have had enough to  |;how some money when you left.     You  |iay yon were going to harvest and you  eft Sunday morning.    Now,  you must  ,iave had some money coming."  'AH of which shows that you never  j travelled with a circus," was the reply of  ] the young inan, while his bald-headed  companion in the prisoner's chair nodded  Ihis Iiead emphatically.' "1 was with the  [horse outfit and this niau was with the  jblack teut gang. The pay is not large���  ]i$18 a month, if you stay all the season  ,vaud go into winter qtiraters,and if you  [don't $15 a nioiith.'.'       -. "  Is qow prepared to issue Drafts and Letters  of Credit on Skaguay, U. S., Atlit], B. C, and  Dawson City, Yuk_oii District.  *,You had your board and lodging,"  said the court, .sententiously.  "Yes, but that shows how little people  know .about a circus life. Jf every boy  had my experience, or knew of it, he  wouldn't hanker to travel with ti, show.  You see, we had to be up at till hours in  tho morning, usually 4 o'clock, and from  then until seven it is tis hard work as  you ever saw. At about that time you  tire as hungry as a horse, and breakfast  is not served until 0 o'clock. That is one  of the schemes of the show. So to fix it  for us they have a privilege wagon,  whore we can go and buy a cup of coffee  and lunch, and we need that every morning. Then ,ue have dinner, a good one,  at I o'clock, and'supper at 5 o'clock.  "Now, it is after that when we again  begin to be aware of our appetites, and  we get so hungry by about 10 o'clock  that we have to go after the privilege  wagon again, and that takes in on ey.  Then we arc always needing things. The  hard work wears out and tears clothing,  and we htive to have little odds and ends.  The circus is just like a travelling city.  You think a town gets some good out of  ti circus, but not much. None of the  hands buy anything in town.  "You see the circus people have a commissary wagon, in wliich they keep all  kinds of necessary clothing, shoes and  outfitting, and the little things men need.  It is like a mine's general store. Wecgo  there when we need anything, and it is  charged up to us. .So when the day for  pay comes around there isn't much, and  sometimes less than nothing for us, and  we htive to work a few days on the next  month to even up with the show. Thtit's  why we left the show business, and had  a mind to go harvesting."  "You look as if you had been hard  worked." said the court. "If I let you go  do.you think you can get out of town  today?"  "Yes, sir, avc want to get right out to  the" fields." ���"'���'."���.:.:'���������:' ���'-": ���'������'" -:-��� ���.._��������� -;..

A good story is told in Mainly About  People renarding the duke of Connaught's  son, young prince Arthur, who was overjoyed at the fact that he had got out of  the Saxe-Oobiirg succession. He was sent  over to inspect his possessions, and, on  returning to Eton, ho confided to his  schoolfellows that what finally decided  him to "chuck it" was his being asked to  play tennis, with three other German  princes, and finding they had balls fielded  for them by a squad of soldiers, who  saluted at attention each time they  handed the ball. This was too much for  the healthy, independent English schoolboy, ho explained, so he promptly decided  to remain English.  Alatau T. Atkinson, recently appointed  special agent of tho Census Bureau for  Hawaii, though a thorough-going American, was born in Siberia of English parentage. His father was T. W. Atkinson, an  artist and-traveller, who wrote "Oriental  and Western Siberia" and "The Upper  and Lower Amoor," which for many  years were standard works on the subjects of which they treated. His mother,  too, w.as an author, having written "Tartar Tents and Their Inhabitants," a  charming, account of the domestic and  family life of the Tartars. Mr. Atkinson  was superintendent of the Hawaiian census in 1800, and a member of the legislature in 1S98. Since 1897 he has been  editor of the Hawaiian Star.  The announcement of Walter Well-  man's early return to his post as Washington correspondent of the Times-Herald, will be hailed by delight by those  who have been interested in his efforts to  reach the North Pole. A treacherous  snow crevasse caused a severe injury to  Mr. Wellmau's leg, which necessitated  his retreat, although his party had already .advanced 200 miles nortlnvard and  discovered new lands north of Freedom  island.

It is  about a college president who is a great  gardener and wears a glass eye. One day  this college president���it being summer  and he on his vacation���rushed in from  the garden all soiled and spattered and  without his glass eye. His wife was  seated with a caller of importance. She  perceived the special unfitness of her husband's condition and frigidly said to him:  "John, go tit once to the library and tell  your master Mrs. wishes to see him."  He went and soon reappeared, clothed,  eyed and in his right mind.  This college president, it is plain, is  himself .a man of presence of mind.  There are plenty of men who, confronted  by such ti remark of genius as this would  have stared and faltered out: "But, my  dear���" and spoiled it all.  The Tremoiit Hotel  *. Burns & Co.

City engineer McCulloch has received  word from the manufacturers of the  Pelton water wheel that tliey will ship  the six-foot wheel ordered by tho city  within two weeks from tlie receipt of  the order. The new dynamos will be in  ti position within three weeks when considerable improvement is expected in the  light .service. The water from the electric light llumo is making a considerable  difference in the (low of the creek and  the city engineer estimates that with the  present arrangements he will have sufficient wti.ter at the lowest stage to develop  (lower for _*"*()() Iti nips of ](> candle power  for a continuous run of It hours. This  will mean that at the lowest stage of the  water there will be power for _500 lamps,  which with economy in the use of light  could be increased by one-third.  Messrs. MeBeath & Peters commenced  work yesterday on tlieir water main contract, putting afewmen tit work clearing  off the brush. The delivery of pipe will  commence .today and trenching will be  started on Monday."  Charles Lyons was brought to the  provincial jail yesterday by constable  Kelly.

There will be  thirty tons of this ore in the first shipment.  A. D. Westby, who has been operating  at Ainswortli for several years, and who  is president of the Canadian Mining &  Milling Company, the properties of which  are located on Woodberry creek, has  gone east for a 00-da.y trip.  When work is .commenced upon the  water main .contract there will be close  upon seventy men employed on city  Avoi'k. Hugh Nixon has about live men  working on sidewalks, there are six at  work on streets tinder foreman MeDon-  nel, at the electric light power house  there are four men employed in making  alterations, another six are at work making extensions to the city's electric light  system, on sewer work MeBeath & Pe  ters have about five, and when work is  commenced in earnest upon the water  pipe Hue there will be employment for at  least another twenty men.      ^^  The baseball dance was a social success  and paid expenses.

The alarm was turned in by telephone from the Club hotel shortly after  seven o'clock. It was unexpected, and  the men therefore had no chance to prepare. Kivo minutes after the alarm was  given the hook and ladder truck was on  the scene and the water turned on. Chief  Thompson wtis well pleased with the  test, which was very creditable to the  boys, as their horses are new atfthe business.  Roisterer ��fc Company's new brewery  is now completed, and the company will  commence moving its plant into the new  quarters within the next few days. The  new brewery will have a capacity of fifty  barrels per day, and will be up to date in  every respect. It is not so very long since  the sales of the Roisterer brewery did not  average a keg of beer a day, but the brew  has grown in favor, and the present demand will tax the capacity of the new  brewery to its utmost.
