Kimberley Still Actively Defended���
Boer Report That Mafeklog Hu
Fallen Not Confirmed.
London, Doq. 8.���A rumor on the '
stock exchange here today tbat Lady- J
smith had been relieved, aided the
market and oansod a noisy bidding for
South Afrioau securities. j
Xbe announcement is taade in a
special dispatch from Bloemfontein,
dated Sunday, Dec. 3, that President
Steyn, of the Orange Free State, baa
joined the Boer forces at Modder river.
His appearance, it is added, bas caused
great enthusiasm among the Boers.
Loudon. Dec. 7.���The war offlce bare
received the following message from
Gen. Foreslier-Walker, tbe British
commander at Oape Town:
"Wednesday, Dec. 7.���Gen. Methuen wires thnt he hss resumed command and is nhrhtly iu communication
witb Kimberley. The health of the
troops is excellent"
Tne Boer report that Mafeking
has fallen caunot be confirmed bere,
although tbe persistency of the report
causes considerable anxiety.
A story was enrrent at Durbau on
Tuesday, Dec. 5th, to the effeot tbat
tbe Boers made what was thought to
have beon iheir final effort to capture
Ladysmith on Deo. 4th; that they had
beeu defeated and had retreated. As
the story was brought by runners it
should bo r ccived with caution as
the unreliability of these "Kaffir-
grams" is notorious. According to tbis
report the Boeis opeued a furious bombardment during the morning ot Dec.
4th. After several hours the British
sib need the Boer guus, made a sortie
and hard lighting followed, tbe Brers
retreating after very heavy losses,
estimated in tho hundreds.
It is reported from the Orange river
today that 107 dead Boors were taken
to Kafflrskop after the battle of Bel-
A dispatch from Frere camp partially confirms the statement of the ie-
tirement of tho Free State burghers
fr in the vicinity of Ladysmith, but
does not indicate that the retreat was
the result of a defeat ou the previous
day, while the statement in the same
dispatch that the Boers were firing into
Ladysmith shews tbat tbe Boer guns
we e still active. It is also pointed out
that all suggestions of weakening" refer
to the Free Staters Apparently tbe
Transvaal Boers are still fnll of fight,
though it is reiterated they are short of
supplies. Aocording to a dispatch
irom Gen. Scha.'kburger's laager, dated
Deo. li, Frenoh and Au-ttrlian military
attaches had arrived there, while the
German attaches had gone to join the
Boer forces along Tugela river, where a
collision is momentarily expeo:ed.
Canadians at the Front.
Loudon, Dec. 7.���Fred K. Hamilton,
with the Canadian troops, wires from
De Aar: "We are now encamped at
De Aar and go to the front tomorrow,
All are well."
Although the cable is dated Deo. 6,
it was probably filed several days ago
and detained by the censor and official
business. There is no doubt, however,
that the Canadians are now with Gen,
Meihuou, and will figure in bis further movements on Kimberley.
Olery is gradually preparing to turn
tbe Boer position at Oolenso and relieve Ladysmith, while Methuen holds
Commandant Oronje's forces at Spyfon-
tbin and Jacobsdale, aud Gatacre is
playing with the Free Stato raiders
among the Dutch villages. Variations
of these three themes continue to occupy tbe attention of the military writers in the London press, and evidenoe
is found of Bullers' controlling mind
In directing the British campaign of
the expulsion of tbe Free Staters from
Oape Colony and tbe relief of Kimberley. Tho defeat of Oronje'^ army
wonld release onr forces of considerable
strength from operations remote from
Natal and open the way for the concentration of tho Dutch army at Bloemfon
tein, who.e reinforcements could be
sent to the Boer laagers between Oolenso and Ladysmith.
St. Boniface Fire.
Winnipeg, Deo. 8.���The fine residence of Mr. S. A. D. Bertram., member
elect for St. Boniface, together with
stables, barns and outbuildings, situated on Provenoher aveuue, St. Boniface, was totally destroyed by fire at
an early hour this morning. The fire
had gained rapid headway before it was
nol iced in tbe stable, and soon spread
to the residence. It was impossible to
save the stiucturos, owing to tho lack
of lire appliances. The Winnipeg fire
brigade was soon on the scene aud gave
all lhe assistance possible, bnt they
could ouly prevent the Humes from
spreading to other residences. It il
supposed that the firo was sot in tbe
hay loft of the stable aud there are suspicious that it is tho work ot an inoen-
diary. A lurge quantity of furniture
was saved by willing hands. It is nn
deistood Mr. Bertrond carried u small
amount nf insurance.

Years In fall���Nnw In HI. 77th Year.
Montreal, Dec. 7.���-There was a painful scene iu the court of Queen's b*noh
todav wheu Wm. Weir, president of thi
Bank Ville Marie, coovio:ed of tending
a false stattment of tbe bank's position
to the government on Jane 80 last,
oame np for sentence. Judge Wnrtele
first rejected the application Ibr tbe reserve case to the oonrt of Queen's benoh
iu appeal, Greenshlelds at once gave
notioe the defence wonld lake advantage ot seotion 744 and appeal to the attorney-general, who might take a different view of the legal points raised. Is
the meantime he asked that sentence
| be not pronounced.
Hon. Charles Fitzpatrick opposed lhe
application and asked for sentence.
The deleudaut would have just the
tame opportunity for appeal - then at
now. After some consideration, the
judge announced he hnd oome to the
conclusion he jould pronounce sentence
on Weir withont in tbe least jeopardising hit int rests, pending an a, peal to
Ihe attorney-general for leave to carry
the oase to tbo court of appeal. Weir,
who had hitherto occupied a teat near
hia lawyers, was then ordered to step
iuto tbe dook. For Ihe first time, he
teemed to realizu his p:eition, and near,
ly collapsed. When asked what he bad
to say why sentence should not be pro*
nonuoed the old mnn produoed a written statement, which, in a -trembling
voice he asked permission to lead.
At the request of the oonrt, Green-
shields read tbe statement, in which
Weir stated he was new lu hit 77tn
year, and fcr the patt three yean had
felt his bodily and mental strength falling. During the nine mouths preceding suspension he waa prostrated by
sew re Illness, whioh incapacitated him
from maintaining close supervision
over the b.iuk, aud he blamed himself
for coutiuniug the duties he no longer
wos able to perform. The disappearance
of to much of the note circulation
whioh led to the suspension it still a
mystery, aud be felt it oould be solved
qnly by further testimony.
Judge Wnrtelee, in pronouncing sentence, said hnudredt and thousands of
people were victims of the prisoner's
administration nf the bonk. When the
bauk got into difflcul ies, branches were
established all through tbe province,
uot for discouuting tountry notes,
but for bringing country money to the
li ad office ot the bank. Tbe spider,
wheu it gets a fly in its web, snoks I he-
blood of Us victim. Tbe prisoner and
his fellow-directors robbed these poor
people. For much less crimes, many
a man has be, n sent to the penitentiary. He had known aud reapeoled
Weir for years, but hc uow pitied him.
Owing to the prisoner's age and the re-
commend itiou of tbe jury to mercy, he
wonld not impose the uuxinioni penalty of fire yrurs in the penitentiary,
hut if the oonrt 1 uten.d to the will of
anguish all over tbe country, a mott
severe pnnistimeut, wonld he inflicted.
At Queb o, Sr. Hyociutle, Nicoletnnd
otlier places, the jndge s.ld ho had
heard mott painful Inlet of dittrett
ariting from the j risouer's maladministration. Poor people had entrusted
the bauk witb a million nnd a quarter
dollars. When was that sum now?
The deposito s would not get ten cents
ou the dollar. It was uot u qu- stion of
the past fow months, for the bank had
been rotien for year., aud Ihe president
know it. He would, therefore, Impose
a penalty of two years, less oue day, In
the common jail.
The poor old prisoner, who is very
deaf, did not hear Ihe sentence, and
when told of it burst into tears, and
was unable to leave the court room for
some time.

agonizing* of skin diseases, nothing
but torture during the day and twofold torture at night.
But there's a remedy permanently

It is Burdock Blood Bitters.

A young man nnd womnti lu this city,

undergo the rpgnlnr form which the

they can he married, The first singe In

pear at tlio monthly meeting of the
society, which Is the only time thot any
business Is done, and make known their
intentions. They both stand up before
the ineetlug, and tbe mnn snys: "With
Divine permission and the Friends' approbation I declare my Intention to take
this woman (and he oills her nnme) to
be my wife," aud then thoy sit down.
But the snnotion of the society for the
marriage requires moro than this formality. It Is never grouted unless both
parties are Frlonds, and so If one of the
young people Is out of tho fold they havu
to he married without the formal Approval of Che society.
Wheu the approval Is secured the
couple marry ilirmselvew, The ceremony
Is appointed by the society to take place

bave to occupy tills conspicuous pluce, and
have to stand up hrnvrly, without min
inter or elder, and marry themselves.

bad seen six couples stnnd up in this
way beforo tho congregattou was asked
why the young people had to do It alone,

speaks In n similar fashion.

In an exceedingly queer fashion. Tbey
have passed through several generations of the Holliday family. Dr.
Maekey, the late ex-goveruor's grandfather, was a warm friend of Lord
Fairfax, nud these gentlemen were together much of their time.
Tho boots thut nre now such a relic

Maekey became tbe possessor of them.
They have been in the Holliday family
until now. At tho request of the lute
