Six Big Creusote Guns Go Through to
the Boers.
Bjcis Repulsed by Yorkshire sod New Zealand Troops at Ladysmith;���Methuen Loses
Confidence of His Men.
There has heen very little official
war news the past week. The beleaguered cities have been subjected
to desultory bombardment, without
much damage, or any success to
tbe enemy. Several skirmishes at
different points between reconnoit-
ering squads have heen reported.
The press, however, has kept busy
with telegraphic rumors, none of
which amount to much. There has
been a good deal of preparatory
activity on the part of the British,
and a movement all along the line
at the front is hourly expected to
take place, the result of which when
it does occur, will be most important.
On Monday morning the Boers
attempted to rush the hill held by
a company of Yorkshires and New
Zealanders, but were repulsed at
the point of the bayonet. The Boers
had 21 men killed and 50 wounded.
The Delag.m Bay correspondent
of tbe London Times asserts that
six big Creusote guns and 50 tons
of shells were landed from the
French steamer Gironde, about the
middle of last month, under the
nose of two British warships, and
were dispatched to Pretoria, causing much rejoicing at the ease with
which contraband of war can run
the blockade.
The Swazi queen mother, says
the same correspondent, since the
death of King Bunu, has killed all
the chiefs who were ever in England
or Cape Town, and is now plotting
with the Boers. The situation may
be considered grave, and should be
investigated by British authorities.
Gun and ammunition houses in
;New York are busy supplying
stocks for shipment to South Africa,
and the goods are designed for the
Boers. They are packed in cases,
marked "canned goods,""groceries,"
"flour" or "molasses," which does
not suggest they are destined for
the use of the Boera, but just the
same this is the ultimate destination of these packages,
v Her Majesty the Queen has signified her willingness to become a
patron of the Canadian patriotic
fund for the relief of her soldiers
who go to the front.
The death list from enteric fever
and dysentery at Ladysmith,
averaging from eight to ten daily,
are considered more serious than
the 420 casualties of Saturday's
fight, as they indicate the frightfully unsanitary condition.
Gen. Buller completely surprised
the Boers and occupied the hills be*
yond Potgeister's Drift, 15 miles
west of Colseno, on Wednesday,
January 10th.
General Gatacre is skirmishing
around Mnlteno and Gen. French
has been throwing a few shells at
the Boers at Rensberg.
Colonel Plummer is moving to
the relief of Mafeking from Bechu-
analand. He is in command of 2,-
000 men.
In Cape Colony General Methuen
has made a demonsrtation in force
shelling the Boer works.
It is said that Gen. Methuen's
men have lost confidence and will
not follow him.
Protects His   Kentucky   Honor  by Killing
Three Men and Wounding Two Others.
Ex-Congressman David G. Col-
son shot and killed Ethel bert Scott,
Luther Demaree and Charles Julian, and slightly wounded James
Golding and Harry McEwing at
Frankfort, Ky., last Tuesday. The
killing was the result of a feud between Colson and Scott which
sprang up between them in the
army last year.
Accounts of the tragedy differ
and it is almost impossible to give
details farther than while Colson
and a party were standing in the
lobby of the Capital hotel Scott
stepped in and the fight began.
Scoit, after being shot, walked
backward toward the stairway and
fell down the stairs dead. His
body rolled over against the barroom door and as it did so Colson,
who had followed, shooting at every
step, fired one or more shots into
the-prostrate form. Demaree, who
was killed in the general fusilade,
was shot twice, one ball piercing
the heart and the other either penetrated the heart or went directly
under it.	
Camp McKinney Mines la Litigation.
The Camp McKinney Mines,
limited, have struck a fog bank.
It is not difficult for a mining company to get into debt , if it
can show some good quartz. The
Camp McKinney Mines company
is the owner of the Granite and
Banner claims. The management
has been such, it seems, that the
sheriff and federal government have
both found it necessary to make
seizures, to hold matters abeyance
till creditors can find out where
they are at in the matter. That
the mines are good and valuable is
not denied, but the management of
them has proven inefficient. The
boom pace was too swift. The affairs are to be reorganized.
Captain Trout has returned from
a business trip to the Coast. He
states that one of the leading topics
of discussion in Vancouver is the
Cape Nome proposition. They are
figuring on a rush to the bonanza
diggings in the spring and expect
25,000 or 30,000 people to go in.
With its yield of $20,000,000 in
gold made last year, Cripple Creek
attains first place in Colorado's
gallaxy of mining camps. It surpasses the output of any former
silver camp, and proves Colorado
to be the golden state of the union.
At a meeting of the directors of
Center Star Mining company held
in Toronto on the 12th, a dividend
of 1 per cent for the month of January was declared, the same to be
payable on February 10th to shareholders of record on January 31st.
Okanogan veins are free milling
at 1000 feet in depth, says F. E.
The Black Bear shaft is down 230
feet with 20 feet more to go to reach
the 250-foot level.
Lord Kitchener the Real Power Behind the
It leaks out that Lord Kitchener
is really chief in South Africa and
Lord Roberts a figure head, says a
London cable to the N. Y. Herald.
It happend thus: The national defence committee met and decided
that Lord Kitchener was the man
for the place. He was Lord Salisbury's nomination, hut endless
difficulties were in the way. t The
trouble was that Lord Kitchener
was the junior of Generals Buller,
Warren and others, but Lord Salisbury is never beaten upon a technicality, and his solution of the problem was to semi Lord Roberts, who
will restore the trust of the men
by his presence as field marshal,
while Lord Kitchener being his aid,
will be enabled, under cover of his
superior, to conduct the campaign.
A company with a capital of
$200,000 has been formed in Toronto for the manufacture of corn
starch for culinary and laundry
purposes, the factory will be located either at Kingston or Prescott.
Rossland Camp, the Miner claims,
has a monthly pay roll of $150,000.
Should Have Direct Telephone and
Telegraph Connections.
. **
Applying for a Charter to Build Lines
Throughout the Province of British
Columbia, and to the Coast.
The Western Telephone and Telegraph Co. is applying to the provincial legislature for a charter
which will empower it to go extensively into the enterprise of building telephone and telegraph lines
throughout this province.
Such movements on the part of
those who can command the means
to forward their aims and plans,
should be given every encouragement and assistance possible consonant with the general good.
Not only are the people of this
province beginning to realize its
immensity in area and natural resources, but the investors in all
quarters of the globe are investigating and investing here. The whole
province, under such conditions is
developing rapidly, and no portion
of it more rapidly than the Boundary country.
With the growth of- business
comes the demand for the most approved and modern facilities for
the handling of commercial and
manufacturing enterprises.
Recognizing this fact, the Western Telephone and Telegraph Co. is
in the field preparing to provide
the business men of the Boundary
with adequate means of communication hy electric appliances with
any other portion of the province,
aud especially with the coast cities.
Under the charter now being applied for the company will, if the
.same is granted, build a line from
the Boundary to Vancouver. Such
a line would not only prove of
great benefit locally, but to the
coast jobber. It would render their
dealings with our people more convenient and enhance their business
gretly, giving them much quicker
The distance to be built over to
reach the Boundary country from
the company's western connection
is said to be about 300 miles.
We say, let us have all such facilities we can get by proper encouragement. The more telephone
and telegraph lines, and railways
bidding for the business of our
merchants and manufacturers, the
better for them, and the less danger
of being hampered by monopolies
in this direction. THE   CASCADE  RECORD
January 20, 1800
Mr. D. McLeod has been on a
business trip to Trail.
So far this has not been a pood
season for wood and coal dealers,
nor for skating-rink proprietors.
The new school desks have just
arrived, and are being Bet up in
their places in the new building,
which will be ready for occupation
on Tuesday morning.
Rev. Mr. McCoy returned Thursday from his semi-monthly visit to
Gladstone and Bulldog tunnel district. Ha walked through the tunnel, and says the work will probably be completed in about three
weeks. Mr. McCoy reports two
Jeet of snow at Gladstone and three
at the tunnel.
Mr. Hubbard met with a serious
loss this week. He recently purchased a fine span of draught
horses from John Earle, the lumber
manufacturer of Cascade. Last
week one of the horses took sick
and Friday morning died. Mr.
Hubbard, we understand, paid $300
for the team, and valued the animal
that died at $200.
Mr. T. E. Mahaffy was seen yesterday on the sunny side of the
street under a straw hat of the
eombrero pattern. It is true the
eun was shining, and the ground iB
almost bare, nevertheless the incident made the impression that Mr-
Mahaffy was either exhibiting his
utter contempt for the season, or
was laboring under a misapprehension of its nature.
The telephone operators throughout the Boundary enjoyed the performance given in Rossland last
night by the local minstrel company of that town. At Rossland
a large speaking-tube was put up
in the auditorium where the entertainment was given, thus enabling
the listeners at the stations many
miles distant to enjoy the fun-
makers' efforts.
The attention of our readers is
called to the new advertisement on
this page of the special sale inaugurated by the English Store. The
syndicate, according to original arrangements, will re-organize in
March next, and previous to that
event the immense and varied stock
now carried must be materially reduced, hence the astonishing cut in
prices advertised to-day. This is an
opportunity that all should avail
themselves of. Read the advertisement.
Mr. T. F. Carden, a memher
of the British Columbia Mercantile and Mining Syndicate, limited,
of Ciiscade, has just received from
London direct one of the latest improved chemical balances
manufactured by DeCrave & Co.
With platinum and silver crucibles
Mr. Carden is now enabled to make
the most complete and accurate
tests of all kinds of minerals that
may be brought to the assay office
of the firm.
A Pleasant Tea Party*
The Ladies' Aid Society of the
First Pftibyterian church gave a
tea party or "social" in the new
school hoUle last Thursday evening,
which was fairly well attended.
The evening was very pleasantly
passed in social chat, innocent
games, music, etc. The acting
of charades of a comical character
greatly entertained the audience,
in which Mrs. McLeod, Miss
Darrow, Mrs. Stocker, Rev. Jos.
McCoy, Messrs. Stocker, Kell-
man, Ritchie, Simpson, Ferguson and others showed their
adaptness for home theatricals.
Tea, sandwiches and several varieties of cake were served for refreshments. This was the first of a
series of like entertainments proposed to be held at intervals during
the winter.
After lunchoen had been enjoyed
Mr. McCoy made a few remarks, in
which he said, in the behalf of the
Indies of the society, that they had
decided to broaden the title of their
organization so as to include
gentlemen in its membership, and
to that end the organization would
hereafter be known as the "Mutual
Aid Society," under which head
gentlemen would be welcomed in
fellowship to participate in the
pleasures and labors of the organization.
Thursday the Canadian Patriotic
Fund stood as follows: Amount
previously acknowledged, $12,716.-
66; Canadian Pacific Railway Co.
$15,000; Grand Trunk Railway
Co., $15,000; Mrs. H. H. Bligh.Ot-
tawa,$4.   Total, $42,720.66.
Chas Hayward was elected mayor of Victoria by a majority of 722,
out of a total vote of 1998. It is
said to be the largest vote ever polled in the city, and the largest majority ever obtained by any candidate for mayor.

Mr. Charles Tupper made 56

Mr. Thurston, tbe well known
mining expert of New York City,
who was out to the Palmer Mountain section, Okanogan, for the purpose of making a thorough examination of the section for eastern

most favorably. He made a critical examination of the larger

as most favorably impressed with

30th November, 1899, the figures
were as follows: Gross earnings,
$26,259,819; working expenses, $15,-
405,635;   net profits,  $10,854,184.
For the elevan months ended
30th November 1898, there was a
net profit of $9,196,261. The increase in net profits over the same
period last year was therefore, for
November $201,727; and from
January 1 to November 30tl . there
was an increase of $1,657.9?
It is stated in different | cations that the Columbia & \V. cin
railway corporation had been granted a bonus in land of 4,000,000
acres, and it is also said to be only
2,500,000. Which is the correct
figure we are unable to state. The
further statement is made that there
is a probability that a cash subsidy
will finally be substituted for the
land, in which case, the government will throw open for settlement
some 4,000,000 acres in the Boundary country.
Headquarters to be in Trail.
Messrs. Mann, Foley Bro<*. and
Larson have moved their headquarters office into the store on Bay
avenue formerly occupied by R. E.
Strong, on the west side of Columbia avenue. TheJoffice will remain
here until after the completion of
the Boundary road, and perhaps
longer. A staff of five or six will
be employed in the office.
Houston's Election an "Eight-Hour" | Victory.
The election of John Houston
mayor of Nelson is an illustration
of how the labor unions can help
themselves if they set about it in the
right way. The vote for Mr. Houston may also be regarded as an expression of the labor opinion relative to the eight-hour law. The
foundation on which rests the lawmaking power is the ballot. The
force that carries the day at the
ballot box is the self-same power
that makes, construes and enforces
law. If labor would defend itself
against the encroachments of organized capital, it must meet the opponent at the point where it secures
its vantage ground, at the ballot
box, and must do so in organized
form, for that is the secret of the
power of capital. Capital is but
the stored energy of labor, and
when the latter comes to fully
realize this fact, the creature will
not be competent to domineer the
Greenwood's New Daily Paper.
Volume 1, No. 3, of the Greenwood Daily Times has reached our
exchange table. It is printed every
day, except Monday, by the Greenwood Times Printing and Publishing Company, limited. Mr. Duncan Rues' name appears as the
editor. It is printed on paper
similar to tbat of the Record. The
copy before us is a5-c >lumn quarto,
being a combination of the daily
and weekly. Its general get-up is
artistic, and mechanically is not
only a credit to its publishers, but
to the workmen employed on it.
As we have given the name of the
editor, it is hardly necessary to
say that it is ably edited. Its
columns are brim full of general
and local news of the choicest and
most interesting character. If the
support accorded the Times by the
citizens of Greenwood enables its
proprietors to maintain the present
excellent standard of the paper, it
will do more to give the city a deservedly high reputation abroad
than could be obtained by any
other use of printers' ink.
Although there is no guarantee
that Transvaal gold is of standard
value, the Portugese government
compels the local banks to accept it
as legal tender the same as British sovereigns, thus giving the republics every facility for extensive
transactions here and remitting
money. This raises the question as
to whether the Portuguese order is
not a breach if neutrality. It may
be noted in this connection that
the Portugese government can settle
its currency questions regardless of
the designs of the currency specu-

Ex-Senator Warner Miller returned to the city yesterday after
an absence of several weeks in the
northwest and west, says the New
York Commercial. When seen by
n representative of the Commercial
and asked about the report that he
and James P. McNaught have acquired an undeveloped water power
in the Columbia river at Kettle
Falls. Wash., with a tract of (540
acres of land, and that an electric,
freight and passenger road is to be
built, to the young mining camp of
Republic, Mr. Miller said that tbe
statement was not altogether correct. Nothing of a definite character had been decided upon. An
option had been obtained for the
purpose mentioned and a corps of
engineers had been employed to
make certain examinations, upon
whose report would depend whether
the transaction would be carried
any further.
Official figures of the voting at
