Lonoon, October 9.���The duke of  Devonshire, lord president of the council,  speakiug at Sheffield today, said that the  deductions made from his recent speech  at Manchester regarding tlie Transvaal  sitxiation, had warned him that a member of the government could nut be too  " cai"eful in what ho said. "Matters liave  not become more critical during the last  few days," remarked tho duke, "and I  trust this interval for rellection may  eonduco. to a pacific settlement." His  grace, however, added that ho was afraid  the only hopeful sign was tho fact that  tho government of the South African  Republic did not appear inclined to precipitate any acts of aggression upon  British territory, such as tlieir previous  preparations led tlie British government  to anticipate as Avithin the bounds of  possibility. No doubt the longer such an  attempt should be delayed, the less would  be the probability of oven a temporary  success.  "Although tlie government does not  consider it right," said his grace, "to relax any measures deemed necessary, and  although preparations for the campaign  arc still in pi*ogress, I think I may say  that the country may rest assurred that  no irrevocable step will be take until'the  Transvaal has received .and has liad full  opportunities to consider these demands,  which the British government considers  are necessary to protect the rights of  tlieir fellow-citi/.ens and to safeguard  British interests in South Africa. Under  these circumstances there_ is a chance,  perhaps only a remote ch.ance, that  wiser counsels than have hitherto  prevailed, ������.'may assert themselves.  I do not complain of the speeches of  the independent politicians, although it  may' be doubted; tha,t such utterances  tend to peace, but a different kind of responsibility rests upon those directly connected with the government. Although  1 do not regret anything I said on a former occasion, when dealing .with, this  question, yet the" handle which that  speech has given to certain irresponsible  negotiators to open communication on  their own account, has warned me that,  at the present time, a member of the  government cannot be too careful of  -what he says, and that the wisest thing  perhaps is to abstain even from good  words. There is no reason, in my opinion, to apprehend that matters liave assumed a more critical aspect, and I trust  -S**7  p\*VCV  .^  V>  ss^v1  TUESDAY MORNING, OCTOBER 10, 181)9.

According to advices tho burghers aro  still iirrivihg at Sandspriut, and it is estimated that 13,000 are concentrated there.

The bylaw is drawn as an amending  bylaw to that known as the "Trades Li- |  cense Bylaw" and tho preamble sets out  that it is considered advisable and expedient to increase the number of saloon  licenses and to make rules and regulations  for the proper conducting and managing  of any concert hall or music, hall for  which a license may bo granted and to  iix the amount payable for such license.  The first enacting section iiroposes to  increase the number of saloon licenses  which may be granted in the city from  five to six. The second section requires  that before any- such license is granted  the applicant shall submit to the council;  a-plan of the building proposed to be'  used as such concert or music hall, and;  that after the approval of such plan rib.'  alteration can be made in the premises-  without the approval of the council.        ^1  The." third section provides that a-  license of five dollars shall be collected1  for each and every day, except Sundays,'  during which such concert hall or music-  hall shall be open to the public. |  The fourth section recites that the. pro-.'  prietor of such music or concert hall shall,],  in  addition to being liable to all other j  penalties prescribed by law, enter into a  bond with the city in the  sum  of  $1000 ;|  for the proper conduct of such premises,'���;  and in  the  event  of any conviction for:  any offense connected with the manage-;  ment of such premises the  license  shall  be  forthwith revoked  and the  sum  ofi  $1000 forfeited to the city. ;���  The fifth section provides that the concert or music hall shall close at 11:30;  o'clock on Saturday evenings and at mid-;  night on all Aveek days.  The sixth section provides that the'  concert hall shall have; in constant  attendance a duly appointed police constable to assist in maintaining order..  This constable is to be appointed by the;  police commissioners and subject to dis^,  'missal by them, but paid by the proprietor of .the concert hall.   .,-'.-���,.;  >���!.  is",-������.s__laerma;n; Speneefiwho���.has;a'^nQtice"AO"6  fniptioji^on .the;^  f'^iiri^^dnif&y^o  ;iti*aGt^|in^ay/jiabsdi^ na^Sil��U'"3d?:.auwQp  ;''^i|ti3p?to^'thi^at^|^  y;f Oil p^yju ^^g|*uiigifM ^ fefr-Wgfc". ;Q^��if^fv6--  'ilpostiiy:-- ^i^^,Moj[ivif0' iffim'^w'd^&vii  ;:'s"lto_ten'e]lf^h^  -; da^Ml WJ_"t'|e:|Cji>_ :^%^^lp^;;^ift- 3'^;.:'-&^?*i  ���������^ladjfi (^ri^i'3ym^t;anaSffi^e;^3  1'ipm% Tip) -%$p1o^elfe';-'^  are;  A Tribune Correspondent.  ���New Denvrr, October 9.���The Miner's  "SilverySlocan Soundly Slceping"iiursery  tale was written by a reporter of  that paper after spending a few days in  the Slocan taking observations through  the bottom of a glass. Most of the observations were taken at Silverton,  where the Miner has one subscriber and  no friends. ' .;  The  mines  in  the  Slocan  are not all  closed down; there is  not  one  hotel in  all the Slocan that is  overcrowded With'  idle men.    Were the  mine  managers to  give the word   to  resume  work in* the:  closed-down  mines, several  days would  -be���required before any number  of men  could  be    obtained.       Around   Sandon  tliere are few miners who are not at work-  on contracts or at properties paying the  standard wages.    Those  who are  there  are paying their Avay, both at the stores  aud   tho   hotels, with their   own   good  nioney.    The hotelmeu in the Slocan are  reali/.ing 100 cents  on the  dollar.    Merchants are not only making expenses, but  are doing business enough to make some  profit.    The best evidence of this is that  tliere are no closing-out sales; no suspensions ; no bankrupts ;  possession.  That the government  porters in the Slocan  with the other statements in the article  in question. It is not to be denied that  the members ef the Silver-Lead Mines  Association and the few member's of the  learned professions resident here are  opposed to the government. An opposition candidate would not save his deposit  were an election held now.  Those in the best position to know are  sanguine that work will be resumed in  the mines before the end of this month.  The mine managers are running tlieir last  bluff, and it. is conceded that the only  thing that keeps them from declaring tho  lockout at an end is their pride ; they do  not like to aidmit that they have been  worsted by men whom they have declared  they had not called at the residences of  any of the people living near the lake  and the worst was then feared. The canoe  has since been found drifting on tho lake.  It is supposed they were overtaken by  rough water, tho canoe capsized and that  they were drowned. The bodies have  not been recovered as yet. W. G. Mit-  chell-Innes left Golden for Windermere  on Weducsday morning to obtain particulars. Much sympathy is felt for him  iu tho family bereavement, which it is  now certain has been sustained.  no  sheriffs in  has  is  m  few' sup-  keeping  Development Work Stopped.  Development work was stopped on the  Yellowstone inine on Saturday. The final  payment of $22,000 was made ou the bond  on Friday, which completed the i>urchase  price of $50,000. The company has quite  a force of men on the pay roll getting  things in shape for future operations, but  no further development will be attempted  until the water power is ready for use.  The Yellowstone mine has been most liberally treated by its present'? owners'' in  the matter of development, and it is now  looked upon as one of the promising properties of Kootenay.

HovelKtoko Hornld.  It's an ill wind that blows nobody good,  and the partial closedown of a few Slocan  mines has had a woudei'fully beneficial  effect in the Lardeau. Some of the'best  Slocan miners, are securing positions on  good prospects, which are now being developed in the Lardeau and Trout Lake  district, and the Lardeau prospect owners  pay the scale willingly. A large number  of important locations have been made  this season, many of them by these same  Slocan miners, who will soon be mine  owners themselves, with the hearty  assistance they are receiving on every  hand. If the prospect owners think the  eight-hour-$c5.50 scale in opening up such  a purely speculative piece of property as  a mineral claim, works them no hardship,  it is hard to see ho*n it is going to ruin  the owners of the Slocan dividend  payers.   Will Hand Over Documents.  London, October 9.���The Paris correspondent of the Daily Mail says :���"I learn  that Germany is about to hand over documents which-will lead to the quashing  of the Dreyfus verdict."     ���  he Upses or en*joys ill his spo^e^ime Wliat  he earns hi his Working tinie. The man  Who has moi'�� time to talk and listen will j  be a bettei'inan. Ho has time to go to  lneetings. He joins a lodge, or a union.  He thinks more and thinks better. He  has broaded ideas; He lias more desires.  He feels that he needs many things that  lie did not feel the want of befOre. His  standard of living goes up again. Men  tliat liave more spare time will take more  iuter6st in public affairs. We will have,  more brain power at work on the great  pvoblikna of Hie. We Will have more  religion and' better religion, and more  politics and better politics, and better  laws, and better aldermen, and better  government, and everybody; will bo benefited. In conclusion, Mr. Spence sums up  the results of the-success of the movement as follows: (1) A lessening of tlie  number of the unemployed. (2) An increasein the rate of wages. (3) A higher  standard of living. (4) An increase in  tlie eomfol't and intelligence of the people.  (5) Better markets, better prices and the  stimulation of industry and commerce.  A General Election is Imminent.  Toronto, October. 9.���-A Toronto observer just returned from Ottawa says  the talk there among both parties is that  a general election is imminent. The feeling at the capital reflects the feeling of  the country at large. The reasons i">ut  forward are that the Laurier government  is anxious to take advantage of popular  enthusiasm before the flood tide of prosperity has had a chance to ebb; also to  be safely entrenched in power before the  moribund Hardy government may meet  its possible death, and so tarnish the prestige of the Liberal party in the Dominion.  In short, the Laurier government wants  to swing with the forward stroke of tho  ���pendulum,     ;-'.';'  :yG��iiad^s;$rima:;-m^  jiiiyjiiti^ Jii ^;;eqrl#|mpS vi&f I  ^k^Ms^'t^  ^Driilfl&ffvmM^  y'tg*;,: yajgdi-ess^-.to  ��style.  ^Man^.-of.thoser.;:inv^^  'jO0:&^$yi, :cfrii>'; o| .il'fe* .j^'u^ieri^'yfe *'Say-  ��:5^^j^mg ������''iri^-'Mnpfeifc ;jtoyi  1"0iis;y.i;fique;syt),;ihe::'"8&il_.!f': ^^L-lisi^rietl.;"witiii.  ;-gjpjOEijt, plgajsiji^ the. hir-,  :'vl|^iiph.AiEl^ befen' lii^irSss^ci-itQ1 arieY  ;by;;my-.ii:ieu"fcijfc..-tlie-^^^^^ >'I woi:iM':  idli^ilyyjepiiipiy 'W^bii it but fbr one i'easbn.,.  ���^Twi;i|���gj^iey'y^n^t'hl. - ,reas.ohy."^hy^i GiAniiot:  f*Jri^^;^mttfnyStattoii-a's'' I would A^isiii;  In tl|e Jrionfehyof: January Iftst t Was in  ;tlie; Gityy :���� Wtighirigtbii, actiii g -M-.British .-  eommlss;i6uer to endeavor to settle cei-  tain diilieultiesWliich we had with our  Americaii neiglilDOrs. incidentally I inay  ^sayrladies=and-geritlenien^tli<a  the best of faiiiilies little quarrelsome  times occur and it so happens that at  this moment there are not. what I "would  Call a qxrarrel but a iiuuiber of diflicnlties  about the Alaskan boundary question.

The next bylaAV up AA'as the first reading of alderman Beer's bylaAv,for the  numbering of the houses. Tho promoter  said that he had found that it Avould not  cost the city more than one cent per  number, for lead numbers.  Alderman Fletcher at once objected.  He did not like the numbers which alderman  Beer  submitted  as specimens, and;  in any event, ho thought it more impor-J  taut to haA'e the names placed  upon the !  streets   than   to   have    numbers    upon;  houses on iinkiioAvn streets. He expressed i  the opinion that there was more iiriporr ;  taut   Avork   for   the    members    of   the  finance committee to deal with than the  ;  numbering of the houses.    He said  that  since the present council had been  returned there had not been one  estimate  brought down from the finance committee.

In the fuse place, the wording of the  bylaw is ambiguous as to the amount of tlie  license.   It states that a license fee of $5  shall be paid for each night a perfoun-  ancc  is  given.    A performance may be  "given  one night a week,  and- liquor  be  sold tlie remainder'of the week without a  license being  paid.    If a saloon license  must first be obtained, and Jj5t5 a night in  addition paid, the' license would amount  to $2000 a year, estimating 800 days (exclusive ol?  Sundays and leg.al holidays)  in  a year.   Again, instead  of licensing  a respectable music hall, the business is  condemned without a li earing by requiring  tlie proprietor of   the place  to go  into partnership with the city iu maintaining  the  police force.    The building  must    be    constructed    on - plans    approved   by   the   couucil,  which, constituted as  the   present council is, melius  nothing, for  have  they uot allowed the  fire limits by-law to be violated time and  again?   Alderman Kirkpatrick should attend the meeting of the council at which  the by-law is reconsidered and move for  its recommittal until it can be licked into  workable shape.  With  everyone   predicting   that   the  his foremen and superintendents to hire  none but union men. Were he to do this,  he would cut the ground from beneath  some of the aspiring politicians of Kootenay, and at the same time bring gladness to sad hearts throughout Slocan  and dividends to many a, weary shareholder in the land beyond the sea. Is  J. Roderick equal to tlie occasion?  Ik tiir Conservatives of British Colum-  o  bia   want to  win at the next general  election, they must adopt a platform of  principles that deals with live issues, not  dead ones, and take for standard bearers  men who have convictions and are not  ashamed of them. The people of British  Columbia-except a few mossbacks and a  few narrow-minded intolerants���are progressive. They will not live in tlie  past politically; they have no use for  men Who have been tried and found  wanting, and thoy will not battle on  issues that are dead. They will not support a party that merely sympathizes  with a principle. They want a party that  will adopt principles and light for them.  If the presidential nominating conventions of the two great political parties  of the United States were held Avithin a.  month, admiral Dewey a. ouid be the unanimous choice of both parties���and he  Avould make a president tluat the people  of the United States Avould uot be  ashamed of. ���-���   On the third page of today's Trihune  avj'11 be found a Avonderfully constructed  political document.

Concerning Canadian Troops for the Transvaal.  Month mai,, October 9.���Dr. Rordeu,  minister of militia, was in Montreal on  Saturday, and when asked his views regarding the proposal to send Canadian  troops to the Transvaal, he said: "I believe, with sir Wilfred Laurier, that all  action in this direction would be premature, and before anything can be done it  will be necessary to summon parliament  and ask its advice. There is nothing to  prevent any man or any body of men  from going to the Transvaal and fighting  in the English army."
