��
An Option Takenjon Ten Claims
-$1,000 Paid Down--An Opportunity for an Enterprising-
Steamboat Man.
A very satisfactory deal has just
been completed which ensures the
thorough exjsloitatiou ot the Big Bend

in that district.
The terms ol the deal provide for a
thorough examination of ihe claims,
which if satisfactory, will be purchased
by the Company, lhe original owuois
retaining an interest. Of course, no-'
thing cun be done until the snow is
gone, sufficiency to allow men and supplies to be taken into the claims, but as
soon as possible work will Le co.n-
inonceil.
The company, us organized nt press

McCarier, Kincaid ami Flint, anil the
claims covered by the agreement are
owned Isy W. Dainard, P. Deacon, C.
Hatch, tt. McDougal, O. D. Hoar and
F. Halliday.
Tlse Revelstoke men are interested in
tho stt-niiiliont line which will or.eri.te
on llie Revelstoke rouie to the Big
Bend, bus next summer supplies will
of necessity be sent in over theGolden-
Big Betid route, as there is a break in
tlie waier route on the Columbia, above
Revelstoke, whicli will nccesstute an

If some entcrjirisiiig sr.eatiiliont in-iu
would place a vessel on the Columbia

No doubt the merchants of Golden, it
approached wilh a feasible plan, would

t his season, as the next season would
doubtless see the completion of the
Revelstoke route.

A REVIEW OF THE WAR.       I corps of burghers.   The oiler was so-
New York, Dec.   23.���Nothing Is swpted, and the pay was Axeil at the
' rate of 62 CeSirff per day with 50 per
cent of ths cattle captured, halt to be
happy new year.
"Trills issue ol the Era is the last
one for the first year of the 20th
Century, and we take this opportunity
to thank lhe people of the town and
district for the support given us since
we assumed oontrol ot ihe paper. Io
reviewing the past year il is a matter
lor congratulation that Golden has
sieadily grown, numerous new residences havs been erected and there is
still a dearth of accommodation lor
families who wish to locate here. Our
business meu have extended their premises and further additions are contemplated tor the near future. The
Lumber Co, has cut more lumber tban
ever before and hate more men in the
bush thll winter than in former years.
Tht discovery of mica in the vicinity
of thi town adds mother source of
wealth to tbe distriot, and we may
well look for an increase ol business in
the year 1902.
The year which is uow closing is one
that has seen two notable advances in
scientific achievement viz., the oon*
struetion tnd operation of the first air
tbip, snd the successful transmission
ol electric signals across tbe vast ex
pause of tbe Atlantic without tbe use
of wires. These, we think, aro rut
ticient to mark the first year of a century wbich will likely iee immense advances In all lines.
Iu conclusion we wish to thank all
our patrons for the favors shown us in
the past and on our part we will eu
deavor lo merit its continuance, and
wish all our readers a Happy and
Prosperous New Year.
NEW ZEALAND ZEALOUS.
New York, Due. 20���A despatch to
lhe London Times from Wellington,
New Zealand, snys: Over a thousand
volunteers tor the eighth New Z.aland
contingent for service in South Africa
presented tliemseke* in one day, exclusive of those iu several dlstrictt
from which the returns have nol come
in. One hundred and thirty three
officers volunteered for the 44 places.
Sixty-three ol them have preiiously
served in the Boer wur.
more frequently atked ot men who
come from England and South Alrita
than the question: "Is Lord Kitchener
making a success or a failure ?" There
have now reached New York tome
seriously written views of what the
Egyptains hero has done since he took
Lord Robert's place it. tbe Boer war.
These accounts are (rom the pens of
such men as Mr, H. A. Gaytine, ol
Router's Ageney, and Mr. W. Bvlloch,
of ihe Morning Post, In London. These
aro two men whose written word hat
never been called In question.
From their observations it appears
that in the early part ol the year tbe
Boers were Hill numerous aud practically overran both the Transvaal and
Orange River Colony.   Large sweeping
movements weie  Instituted  by Lord
Kitchener, which resulted in driving
the enemy out ot certain strongholds,
and   at the same time  considerably
reducing their ttrength.    Lord Kitchener then Inaugurated the tys'om of
block-house tor the protection ot the
line.   During Nov., 1900, the enemy
interrupted the lnje thirty-two times.
During October, 1901, aud up to Nov.
29, there had not been a single break,
As soon as the railway  were protected, large areas were inclosed with
block-houses.   The position thus in
closed were thoroughly cleared of tbe
enemy    and   strictly    patrolled   by-
Constabulary.   The   result bas   been
that a large and ever iucronring area
has been thoroughly denuded of the
of the enemy.    Lately a small party
of the enemy entered one of the pro
lected areas and in a ftw  hours   wat
oapured. Consquently the enemy's area
of opei-atiou is gradually  but turely
being restricted.
The average captures of the last eight
months has betn two thousand ptr
month. All the Boers, whose desire to
continue resisting wus weak, have now
been captured or have surrendered. The
remainder are desptrate mtn.
It is not possible merely looking at
the weekly summaries to form any
idea of the real progess which is being
effected. Provision ii being made by
tl.e railway lo procure the equivalent
ol o/cr four thousand Cape trucks.
It Is now possible not only to meet
the military demaud, but also lo
cope with the large volume of civil
traffic which i. beingittadly increased
by the military authorities from month
to month,
Civil administration is alrtady firm
handed over monthly and the rest to
go into the treasure ehest of the corps
for distribution later on, or to bs kept
iu order to form a nucleus for commencing farming  operations  at  tbe
conclusion ol   hostilities.   The great
. majority ol these burghers are grent
! land owners, while a lew are by-owners who might remain  members ol tho
(ores nfter the war, as a sort of lem
porarv police.   Each corps is accompanied by two British colonial officers,
one of whom uc:s as Intermediary between the Burgher commander and the
comman.lcrs of   columns,   while   the
other serves us quarter master    Since
the formation of these two corps,  a
third corps  is being   raised by Com
inuudunt Briel, formerly adjutant  to
Beyers.    A trustworthy report states
that before Delarey made bis attack
at   Moedwill   he nnd   a   "prcdikaut"
(clergyman) harangued the men, telling
them that ammunition was short, tbat.
75 rounds each would be served out���a
quantity which almost exhausted their
stock nnd that it would be necessary to
take the   Britisli   oamp,   (or il they
failed still greater   hardships would
ensue than  thos. they   were already
suffering.   Beyer is also engaged in
hunting for ammunition.

British party has been formed which,
rtcognizing the hopelesineis ot the
Botr cuute, is determined to iti utmost
under the ntw govermsnt to further ths
prosperity ol Ihe country.
What now remains to be done is
simply to wear down the Boeis still iu
the field by constantly harassing them.
Every Boer now taken fights hard before being captured; it is, therefore,
necessary to understand when reading
the summaries of the captured that
tbey represent little ufiairs which have
only been brought tb a successful issue
by dint ot hard marching and harder
'fighting, Tho enemy now left in lhe
field are determined to fight desperately.
The spirit of the army is excellent.
From the personal experience of men
who have followed the operations for
two years it is declared that the army
bas lost nothing ot its keen determination. Though they have been hard
tried by long marches and bad weather
tbe troops are quite cheerful, knowing
that their work, though gradual, ia
nevertheless uniformly successful.
It hai been evident for several

doing service in the field. The rule Is
strictly enforced that none but volunteers shall be admitted, As soon as

GET TOGETHER
Chesterfield, Derbysuire, Eng., Dec.
ltj���Lord Rosebery's long expected and
much-heralded speech, delivered here
to-night, wns received with marked
enthusiasm by an immense crowd. It
can hardly be said to have thrown
muoh light along the pathway of the
Liberal party. Resolved into its elements the speech merely said: "Get
together"
The speaker, himself, contested that
he did not pretend to say how tbit co-
nesion could be accomplished. The
tenor of the speech was lhat tho ministry was wrong, but that the Liberals
should be very careful how tliey tried
to let it right.
Concerning the* Government's conduct of the war, Lird Rosebery wat
severe and scornful. He was particularly sarcastic at the expense of tho
explanation of Lord Salisburv, the
Lord Chancellor, thnt only a sort of
warfare was now going on, and strongly condemned the scandalous misiepre
sentat'ons by which the Governinisiit
had precipitated lhe last general vine
tion. Lord Rosebery st ron.il/ blame 1
the Government tor iti taotl s-tns-.-s-s,
which had pro luced unparalleled ill
Will toward Great Erisain in European
countries, nnd which he attributed
largely to the provocative oratory of
Mr. Jos. Chamberlain.
Whilst he was emphatic on tl.e
necessity of vigorously prosecuting the
war, and expre-sel the fullest con
Sdence in Lord Kitchener, Lord Rosebery said that he tho ight that the
Government sho sld be prepared to
listen to peaee overtures, and contended that there wss nothing degrading

Boer Governmeut for the purpose of
making pea-.e.
Lord R.sebery sail that no sane
Boer now hoped for anything but an
nexation, nnd lor many reasons it was
urgent that the war should be ended
The Boers shoeld not be unnecessarily
humiliate I. To Boers swearing allegiance, ho would givo the largest possible
amnesty an 1 the fullest civil rights.
Scornfully rejeoting the idea that suoh
an empire as Great Britain tould not
provide an alternative Government to
the exlitin * ministry, he said that if
that were true, the nation was more fit
to control a cabbage garden than sn
empire
In conclusion, amid loud cheeri,
Lord Rosebery declared that hit services were at the disposal of the oountry in anything lie could do to further
the policy he had just espounde I.
Lord Rosebery spoke for almost two
hours and was reoived throughout
with tlie greatest enthusiasm.

Hade.
lt Is often desirable to join artioles witb
a strictly waterproof cement, and one
wbioh Is not affected by any ordinary ole-
mentor condition. An elastics gutta percha
cement Is ooslly made ond will be found
extremely useful to have In tho house, being readily applied nnd of grent tenacity.
In households whero tbere are children the
problem of shoes Is sometimes a serious
one, and the possibility ot putting on a
few solei without the trouble nnd expense
of sending to the shoemaker Is well worth
considering. An excellent cement for this
purpose Is made by dissolving 10 parts of
gutta peroba in 100 parts ot benzine. When
the two ara perfectly and smoothly Incorporated, add 100 parts of linseed oil varnish. Tbe whole must be tbaken and
beaten until perfectly mixed. The plecei
ot leather to be Joined ahould he rasped
with a fllo or other rough substanco In order to give tbo surfaoe a grain to bold by.
Tho preparation Is applied to tho solo of
the shoe tnd the piece of leather to be
affixed thereto. The sections must be
pressed together tnd allowed to dry for
tome hours���a day or two Ib better.
This cement Is extremely olastlc ond
warranted, if properly made and applied,
to resist dampness, to hold the solo llrmly
In place and to prove extremoly durnblc
It costs but little and Is one of those artioles tbat no well regulated family can
���fford to be without. A cement Ior repair*
Ing-rubber boots and shoes Is mndo in two
parts. The first consists of 860 parts of
chloroform to 10 psrtsof oaoutcbouo, thoroughly mixed. This Is kept In a glass
stoppered bottle and Is better If not exposed to tbo light. The second part consists of 40 parts of oil of turpentine, 10
parts of caoutchouc and t, parts of rosin.
These ere thoroughly dissolved and kept
by themselves.
When mending day oomes, mix equal
quantities of the two solutions. Clean the
rubber thoroughly, roughen It slightly
with a file or rasp, havo It perfectly dry,
coat the rubber shoo and lho patch with
the preparation and allow It to remain n
moment until it becomes tacky. Then
unite the two, press thorn closely togother
and If posslblo continue tbo pressure for
several minutes. It Is well to allow tbe
mended artioles to rcmnln In u dry and
warm atmospbero for a number of hours
before oxposlng to wot an.) cold. If they
oan be put away for sovcrnl duys without
using, It is better. Bo general Is the use
of rubber boots and shoos, and such expensive articles aro they, t-sptsclnlly where
thero are largo families, that any means of
prolonging their usefulness is likely to be
met with approval.���.New York Ledger.

"Speaking of proverbs," remarked Mr.
Blyklns, thus bringing to mind the faot
that nobody bod muntionod proverbs, "reminds me of the loose manner In which
they cau be construed. When you get
right down to facts, �� great many of three
proverbs don't amount to much."
"Tboy'ro supposed to bo tho products of

The MesacDser Boys' Shine.
The messenger boy was shining his
thoes In a new way. Ho was leaning up
against tbe side of a building, with one of
hit legs drawn up so as to bring a shoe
within rango of his onus His outfit consisted wholly of a box of tbe blacking sold
exclusively by street vendors. From this
box with the aid of a finger he scooped a
heaping toaspoonlul of gummy contents
with whlcb he carefully buttered tho toe
of ono shoe. Tben he begun to polish thll
layer of blacking with tho palm of hll
band.
"Well," Isold, "what aro you doing!"
"Blackln mo shoes."
"Why are you doing thntf"
"Soso they won't mako me go tor th'
bootblack at headquarters an get ino shoes
tblned an dock me wsget HO cents (ur It."
"How much do they fine you for dirty
bandit"
"Nan-thin, and I oan wash 'cm miners."
He didn't, however, but, giving tbem a
