DISASTER A MEMORABLE ONE
Boer General Lets the British Prisoners Go but Keeps the Captured Guns.
London, Dec. 30.—The war office
has received a dispatch from Lord
Kitchener, dated Johannesburg,
saying that the British prisoners
captured when the Boers, successfully rushed Colonel Firman's
camp at Zeefontein on December
24th, have been liberated and have
returned to Bethlem,
The list of casualties published
indicates the entire success of
DeWit's attack.
Six officers and 50 men were
killed, eight officers were wounded
more or less seriously. The Boers
now hold the two guns captured.
The lioers appeared to have
climbed the precipice and, mustering near the top at 2 p.m., suddenly attacked the picket on the
summit.
Lieutenant Scarlett, who was
wounded, was overlooked by the
Boers and left behind. He saw two
wagon loads of dead and wounded
Boers carried off. The Boers, who
apparently numbered about 1200,
under General DeWet* behaved
well, leaving men to look after the
wounded. -
The aggregate loas promises to
make the Zeefontein affair a memorable disaster to the British.

WESTMINSTER'S BRILLIANT SCENE

Open on January 16th-Large Subscriptions to

A Denial From the Victoria
Colonist.
THE RIGHT KIND OF A WIFE
Sentenced to Be Hanged—A Peculiar Greenwood Verdict—Well
Known Editor Dead.
New York, Dec. 29.—Ford cables:
"Arrangements for the opening of
parliament by the King on January 16th are making rapid strides.
Last February two hundred representatives of the people were bud-
died together under the most unpleasant conditions, but it is expected next month 486 out of 679
members of the lower house will be
enabled to witness the proceedings
in comfort. The Queen and ladies
of the court will appear in colors,
and they will be enabled to add
lustre to the scene by wearing
jewels in the gilded chamber.
Everything points to an even more
brilliant pageant than when the
King went down to Westminster at
the beginning of his reign.
In response to an appeal for
1,000,000 guineas for the extension
of the work of the Wesleyan Meth
odist church, the sum of £722,000' Bame nrce;
has been annually paid, while an
additional £180,000 has been
promised.
The everlasting Irish question is
likely to occupy a considerable
portion of the time of parliament
during the ensuing session.
Six important acts of parliament
passed at the last session will corns
into operation New Year's day.
Three of these acts are specially interesting as showing the increasing
regard of the legislature for the interest of children.
The Antartic expedition which is
to set out from Scotland next year
will be a peculiarly a national one.
The whole of the money subscribed
towards it has been given by Scotchmen, and the scientific staff and
the officers and crew   are  of   the
communication.
Editor Evening World.
Dear sir—Allow me a little space
in your valuable paper regarding
the attack on me in the morning
paper of the 27th, accusing me of
something I did not do. Now, I
will Uke that $50 that Mr. Hooper
haa got to throw away. I can say
truthfully tbat the man was
brought out of the mine and
marched to the city horse trough
and that it was not done for a jest
or fun. And I wish tbe general
public to understand that I did
not come to Kossland on his recommendation. I have the right kind
of manhood in me not to follow a
genuine scab around the country,
and where I came from in Michigan I oan return again with a clean
record and honest face, and that is
more than some people can do.

Asthma <2ure Free!
ANOTHER    TROUBLEMAKER.
Premier Dunsmuir appears to
have gone completely off his head,
not only in political matterB but
also in regard to the management
of his coal mines. His latest unpleasant act has been to remove
the pay office for the Extension
miners to Ladysmith, and forcing
the miners to walk 15 miles in
order to get their hard-earned
wages. At the same time, it is alleged that a special messenger was
sent to Extension to pay off the
Chinese employed in the mine.
The Nanaimo Herald in referring
to Mr. Dunsmuir's policy of late in
regard to his employes, says:
"Needless to say the indignation
at Extension mines was intense,
and when a committee of the men
waited on Mr. Dunsmuir to ask as
a favor that pay be made at the
mines he added insult to injury by
dismissing them with language
more appropriate to a bowery
tough than the premier of British
Columbia."
"There can be no possible extenuation for this outrageous action on
the part of, the company. The
men lose by it; the company lose
by it, but apparently so utterly beside themselves are they in their
blind Ladysmith mania that all
interests must be sacrificed to no
advantage except that of a few
saloons in Ladysmith."

London Truth thinks that "Mr.
Frecheville has been greatly to
blame for delaying his report so
much, and even now he sends imperfect cablegrams. Why does he
not state the yield of the 13,000 tons
of the November output? Hitherto
the contents in gold, silver and
copper have always been mentioned. Why then should this information, and also the value of the
ore be kept back until he returns?
People are very generally beginning to talk about the last stage of
the management being very much
worse than the first, and that what
has occurred since the new board
has been in office is certainly worse
than what happened during the
Whitaker Wright period."
Among the alleged lost arts is
that of tempering copper and at in-
| tenuis it is stated that some one
has rediscovered this said-to-be-
secret of the ancients. The latest
claimant to the honor of rediscovering the long lost secret is a
Pennysylvania man. His process is a secret one, and it is said
that Secretary Root of the American
cabinet has interested himself in
the matter and that a government
commission will soon investigate
the merits of the discovery with a
view to using the hardened copper
for armor for battleships. It may
be possible to harden copper but
the average worker in metals
would have to see it done before he
would believe it can be done. The
Pennsylvania man is probably a
fakir of the Keeley order, who flim-
flammed his friends with 'an alleged motor.—Nelson Miner.
Manager Aldridge announces
that the C. P. R. will at once commence the erection of a refinery at
the Trail smelter of sufficient capacity to handle the present bullion
output of the country. The plant
will be an experimental one, but as
soon as it is demonstrated that
sufficient bullion can be obtained
to insure its becoming a commercial success, the plant will be enlarged or another refinery will be
built at Nelson or on the coast.
New York Life has been publishing a number of comments from
correspondents on the conduct of
the paper during the past year.
Some of these are complimentary,
others are very much the reverse.
Here is one of the latter kind: "I
have never read your bright paper
till recently. It is a conspicuous
example of fine abilities prostituted,
and I am led to feel that your ancestry must include Tom Paine
and Benedict -Arnold, your relatives Bob Ingersoll and Aguin-
aldo, and your father must have
been a copperhead, and your mother
a rattlesnake."
"Christianity vindicated the moral and spiritual freedom of men as
men, proclaimed their uniyersal
brotherhood, and insisted that before their Creator and Judge, rich
and poor, bond and free, meet together in the essential equivalence
of human personality. Victor
Hugo's picturesque saying is literally true—truer even than he realized: 'The first Tree of Liberty
waa that Cross on which Jesus
Christ offered Him. elf in sacrifice
for the liberty, equality and fraternity of mankind."'—W. S.
Lilly.
"I find abundant proof, First,

secondly, that professional crime is

wonderful effect of your Asthmalene, for the cure of Asthma. My wife has been
afflicted with spasmodic asthma for the past 12 years. Having exhausted my own
skill as well as many others, I charced to see your sign upon your windows on
130th street, New York, I at once obuired a bottle of Asthmalene. My wife
commenced taking it about the firs, of November. I very soon noticed a radical
improvement. After using one bottle her Asthma has disappeared and she is entirely free from all symtome. I feel tnat I can consistently recommend the medicine to all who are afflicted with this distressing disease.
Yours respectfully, O. D  PHELPS, M. D.

END OF LONG TELEPHONE WAR
Two  Companies In   the  Kootenay Whs
Could Not Exist In One Field.
Behind the suit for i^reclosure
and the winding up of the i ffairs
of the Columbia Telegraph &
Telephone company, instituted in
this city by Mr. R. Kerr Houlgate,
and in which Mr. Justice Irving
made an order here last Friday,
there is an interesting bit of history that the Province gleaned
from a gentleman just arrived in
this city from Grand Forks.
The story deals with the efforts
of two telephone companies to
maintain and operate systems in
the Kootenays with connections to
Spokane. As is generally the case
where two telephone companies enter into competition the strife for
patronage was great and the result
is tbat one of the companies has
been operating under great loss,
while the other has also lost
money, and the subscribers have
had to incur the expense of having
two telephones if efficient service
was desired.
Some five or six years ago a
telephone line was installed and
operated from the Kootenay country to Spokane. Systems were
placed in Spokane, Rossland, Nelson, Greenwood, Grand Forks and
other places where it was thought
business could be secured. This
line was built by the Spokane &
British Columbia Telephone company, the principle shareholders
in which concern were Messrs.
Oakes and Aris. At nearly every
point where the Spokane & British
Columbia Telephone company's
system was installed it was
forced to enter into competition
with the Vernon & Nelson Telephone company, which waB first
in the field. The inevitable result
was that rates for telephones were
cut to the ground. Lots of instruments were installed by both
companies, but the revenue derived
was not of such proportions that
either company could pay operating
expenses.
Both companies concluded to
make the fight one to a finish, and
the public laughed and imagined
itself benefited, hut it turned out
that the majority of the people ,
were forced to subscribe to both
systems so that telephonic com- j
munication could be secured wilh
all the persons who used the telephone. The result was that taken
in the aggregate the rales for service were higher to those who
were forced to use both systems
and a great deal of dissa tisfactioa
was felt.
Early in the game Messrs Oakes
and Aris felt the loss of the money
which they had invested, and finally they were forced to sell their
interests to Mr. C. O'Brien Reddin,
well known throughout the province as a mining and investing
broker. When the sale was put
through Messrs. Oakes and Aris'
losses were figured up at about
$10,000—not a small amount for
• mining man like Mr. Oakes to
pay for the privilege of owning a
telephone line for a short while.
The Columbia Telegraph and
Telephone system was maintained
for a time by C. O'Brien Reddin
who Was at that time a resident of
of Rossland. Its destinies did not
remain long in his hands for he
sold out to Messrs.Donald & Davey
of Grand Forks, and it is rumored
that when the telephone interests
and Mr. O'Brien Reddin parted
company his experience in the opposition telephone company was
not a happy one.
Messrs. Donald and Davey concluded that they - would force the
fighting and put the opposition
of the Vernon & Nelson Telephone
company on the shelf. With this
idea in view they interested the
financial aid of a well known institution of Grand Forks. Backed
by practically unlimited capital
Messrs. Donald and Davey extended tha system of the Columbia
Telegraph & Telephone company
and the plant was put in such condition that it was at all events
the equal of that belonging to the'
opposition company.   A great deal
of ready cash was invested in these
improvements, but the proprietors
found that as their operations became more extensive there was even
a greater shortage in the receipts
than had formerly been the case.
Messrs. Donald and Davey felt the
loss to a certain extent, but their
financial backers bore the brunt of
tbe cost of maintainnnce, and it is
reported that close on $150,000 was
sunk in a very short time. All
this occurred during the past two
years, and during that time the
Columbia Telegraph & Telephone
company has been steadily losing
money, and so did the Vernon &
Nelson Telephone company, till
the Columbia company was, as the
suit indicates, forced to the wall.
The suit which was instituted by
Mr. Houlgate will likely culminate
in the purchase of the Columbia
Telegraph & Telephone company
by the Vernon & NeUon company,
and so the disastrous competition,
which has been continued so long,
will end. It is estimated that after
the purchase of the interests of the
former company has been effected
the loss to the fina ncial institution
which backed it will not be less
than $70,000—not very satisfactory
to the backers.
It is but tbe natural sequence of
events that where two telephone
companies seek patronage in one
particular district one should be
forced to the wall. From the point
of view of The Province's informant
two telephone companies are a decided nuisance and competition in
such cases is a thing not to bs desired again by those who have experienced the experiment. With
few exceptions competition is a
good thing, but in the case of telephone companies it is something
which one should pray to be preserved from.—Vancouver Province.
