HALF A MILLION MEN
Great Britain's Army to Reach |
that Total.
Statement to the House of Commons
by George Wyndham, Parliamentary
Secretary of theWar Office.
London, Feb. II.���Tbe house of commons was crowded to-day in anticipation of a statement from George Wyndham, parliamentary secretary of the
war office, in regard to the army measures. Joseph Ghoate, United Stales
ambassador; Henry White,  secretary of
the United States embassy j and W. T.
Baker, president of the Chicago Board
of Trade, wore among those present in
the distinguished strangers' gallery.
Mr. Windham arose amid cheers
when the house wont into committee,
and said he did not wish to discuss the
question of the prosecution of the war,
but would immediately outline other
military measures necessary for placing
home defense on a satisfactory fooling.
The government, be continued, had nol
even considered tbe question of compulsory service, which was entirely unnecessary in view of the active recruiting for ton auxiliary forces.
During the spring and summer tlie
volunteer artillery will be rearmed,
Mounted infantry in tbe volunteer corps
will be formed. Artillery services ami
the corps of engineers necessary for two
additional army corps would he raised
forthwith, namely, 80 liuld batteries
and seven horse batteries. The speaker
also said it bad been decided to raise II'
additional infantry battalions. Mr,
Wyndham .(aid the existing cavalry
forces would also be expanded by several   regiments,   and   thai   nuns.inns
would be offered to militia officers, to
the colonies ami to the universities,
At present, the speaker further pointed out, there were 100,000 regulars in
the country, and tin' increase was anticipated to b,' 80,000. There were now
238,000 in 'ii in '.In- auxiliary forces, and
It was estimated the inorease would he
60,000 men. So, altogether, the conn-
try would soon have at least 517,000
men, and Mr. Wyndham anticipated
that the number would be nearer 000,-
000 than hnlf a million.
The secretary of state for war. Lord
Lansdowne, furnished the house of lords
with a statement similar to that of Mr.
Wyndham. The Prince of Wales and
the Duke of Cambridge were interested
listeners in the house of lords.
Price a Heavy One.
In the courae of his remarks, Mr.
Wyndham referred to the government's
' confidence in the power and splendid
efficiency of the fleet, Baying that ii was
never greater nor more legitimate than
now. The government, Mr. Wyndham
���'said, was not making an appeal fur
money and men in a spirit nf panic.
The risk was nol much nearer than a
year ago, but it laid increneed in exact
proportion to the reduction of the home
military defense, which sufficed to justify the present demands for an increase of tb" resources for home defense.
The liberal leader, Sir Henry Camp-
bell-Bannerman, who followed, said he
had heard of the great scheme for the
administration of a great army���but
had not heard of a single figure mentioned as to the cost thereof, nor even in
regard lo the particular vote. How
much of the money required was due to
the present war? To this question Mr.
Wyndham replied ��+20,000.
Sir Henry Campbell-Bannerinan said
he could not he expected to pronounce
an opinion on the scheme suddenly, but,
he added, be believed nine-tenths of bis
hearers were ready to do almost anything for th�� purposes of the present
war. bill would like to regard it as a war
measure alone, leaving the question ol
the future evpenses open for the future.
It wm believed that Mr. Wyndham
meant in convey that all tho supplementary estimates asked lor were due to
the war except 6420,000, required fm'
the new scheme to close the financial
year of .March 81.
KIMBERLY RELIEVED
A BRIGHTER OUTLOOK
The Strike in  the Slocan  is
Finally Settled.
The Situaiion in the Boundary District is Practically Uneft'ected by the
Partial Close Down at Rossland.
General  French   Succeded in
Raising the Siege.
Cronge and His Army are Retreating Toward Bloemfontain��� Rejoicing at the Good News.
LoNOO.v, Feb. I(i.���Lord Roberts sends
the war office the following:
"Jacoiisdal, Feb. 10.���2 a. m.���General French, with a force of artillery,
cavalry :un\ mounted infantry, aeached
Kimberly this evening. The liners retreated before General French, leaving
live laagers, great quantities of cattle
and 2,000 sheep."
J.\i otisim,, Fob. Iii.���The following is
from General French: "I have completely dispersed the enemj from the
southern side of Kimberly, and am now
going to occupy their ground. I have
captured the enemy's laager and Btore
depots, supplies and ammunition. The
casualties are about 20 uf all ranks
wounded.     Kimberly   is cheerful and
well."
London, Feb, 17���1:45 a. m.���General
Cronje, with a start "fa day or tun, is
seemingly in lull retreat. With the
cavalry be simply stayed over night in
Kimberly and then pushed ou to get in
touch with his retreating army. in
their hasty departure the Boers lost
quantities of supplies and ammunition,
Military opinion her" is that Lord
Roberts will not push far after the Doers
immediately, because ol tbe transport
problem and the troop's need of rest,
lie has In feed 70,000 persons in his
army besides the whole Kimberly population.
General French lost, only a few men in
action, but the forced marches and
kieat have probably made many ill.
All over England tonight there have
been evidences of public joy. In every
theatre and public meeting, around the
railway stations, aud in the streets,
there have been expressions of gladness
and jubilation over the news.
Tbe I'. ('. Hotel w ill change bads next
week, A. I) McLennah retiring, aim L.
I.. Flannagan and James Hagan assuming the control aud management,
The air has been rife with all kinds of
rumors in regard to the closing down
of the mini's in this vicinity since the
receipt of the news announcing the partial shut down of the Le Roi and War
Eagle mines in Rossland camp. However, up to this writing no decisive move
towards a general close down has been
made, and those in a position to speak
by the card say there will be none.
Early in the week work on the Dominion Copper Company's properties in
(Ireenwood camp was discontinued, and
Frank Robbins, engineer in charge,
said: "I got instructions from the east
lo follow the lead of the Kootenay
mines, on account of the eight-hour law,
and consequently closed down all work.
We have to-day paid off 55 employees.
I cannot say when we shall re open."
Thursday the force at the Jewel mine
was laid off, with the exception of eight
or ten men. With these two exceptions
work on the various properties in the
vicinity of Greenwood is going along as
usual.
The Rosslaud Miner of the Kith says
that the strike in the Slocan has been
practically Bettled, and that the Union
miners are returning to work at tho rate
proposed by the mine owners some time
since, namely, $8.25 per eight-hour day
for miners, and $3 for muckers and car
men. II is said the Union is not recognized by the mine owners, but the
miners are accepting the owners schedule.
I'lie Morrison mine, situated in Dead-
wood camp, has resumed operations
with a force i.f ton i     The stock   has
been made assessable to the extent of hi
cents porshare, and when the 500,000
shares of treasury have been exhausted
it is probable that assessments will be
levied. It is thought, however, before a
great while the  property  will  be on  a
I paying basis, aud there mill be no necessity of levying assessments.
The Rossland Miner dismissing the
partial shut dowai of the mines at that
point says:
"Hardly bad the camp recovered from
j the news announced  on  Tuesday   when
(the l.e Roi company laid off some hun-
I dred andsixty men, and announced that
all ore shipments wouid at once cease
until all the new plant ordered last fall
had been installed.     Mr. McDonald, the
; manager, claims that the plant in use
was no longer available  for economical
1 mine working at the present depth attained in the Le I'oi.    Like the manager
! of the War Eagle, the Le Roi manager
declined !" lix any date for the resumption of shipments, hut stated that  work
! would be found for about 200 men. He
further added that he did not think
ile-iv would be any further material reduction in   the   l.e Roi force other  than
might be necessary to accommodate the
. mine service to a non-shipping standard,
and that the other mines owned by the
British American corporation would
probably run along as tbey were at present. This latter statemiit was made
in response to a question based on the
street ruumor that the No. 1, Josie,
Nickle Plate and Columbia Kootenay
had, or were about to close down entirely.
The closing down of the Nelson smelter and the Silver King mine there, announced on Friday, and claimed by the
Nelson Miner to be avowedly on account
of the working of the eight-hour law,
has convinced a great manv people in
this city that behind the alleged machinery deliciencies, is the labor question,
and no statement to the contrary will
convince them that the whole movement had not been arranged by a combination of the mine owners.
One result of this camp's ceasing to
ship is the closing down of both the
local smelter at Trail and Northport,
which wa'll entail a loss to tbe railways
of some $14,500 per month, a sum they
would otherwise have earned by hauling ore.
So far as Rossland is concerned, the
earning power of the camp has been
seriously diminished,  but if the worst
has been made public, and it has been
authoritatively stated that it had, a very
respectable sum will still  be disbursed
every  month  until the shipping com-
I mences once more.    Meanwhile, until
j some assurance is given that the camp
I has reached the end of the matter a
good deal of uneasiness will continue to
prevail."

SLOCAN STRIKE SETTLED.
i The Terms of Settlement as Agreed Upon Between the Mine Owners and Miners.
The terms upon which the Slocan
trouble has been settled, are set out in a
communication from the Silver Lead
Mines association, under the date of
December 23rd, to the following effect:
"The Silver Lead Mines Association
of British Columbia, being desirous to
effect a permanent settlement of the existing wage differeeces which prevail between said association and the miners'
unions of the Slocan for an eight-hour
day, is prepared, and do now make the
offer of a compromise on the following
basis for underground work: Miners
in shafts, $3.50 to $4; machine men,
$3.50; hand drillers, $3.25; carmen, $3;
laborers, $3; timbermen, $3.50 to $5;
engineers, $3.50 to $4: blacksmiths,
$3.50 to $4; laborers on surface (ten
hours) $3. [Note���As formerly, men
working in unusually wet places, and in
bad air, were compensated with shorter
hours, we now offer under similar conditions, $3.50 per shift of eight hours.]
In making the above offer of a compromise as to tho wage scale for an
eight-hour day, the association reserves
tbe privilege of employing or discharging till men. whether Unfon or nonunion,  upon   the  basis of   capability
alone,  and  agrees that   no  discrimination shall be made against  any man   Hy
reason of- his* affiliation with, labor ��r-
ganizations." < THE   GREENWOOD   MINER.

OPENING THE NORTH HALF.
County Commissioner Wilmot of Republic Expresses an Opinion.
The Republic Miner says: County
Commissianer Wilmot, who is in town
this week, was asked if he thought the
visit of the Indian chiefs from the Col-
ville reservation to Washington would
delay the opening of the north half.
"No," he said, "I do not think it will.
Congress has passed a law prescribing
how the north half shall be opened, and
the government will proceed on those
The president will listen to the com-
pfaints of the chiefs, and he may recommend some measure looking to the
payment to them of a certain sum of
money, but this will have to be carried
out by a new act of congress. In the
meantime the north half will be opened
as soon as the surveys and allotments
to Indians of land in severalty are approved. At a certain time the president will issue a proclamation, and six
months after that the lands will be open
to white settlement. I am confident
the opening will take place some time
this year."
When Mr. Wilmot was asked if be
thought much of the land could be used
for agricultural purposes he replied in
the affirmative.
"There will be more land cultivated
than people imagine. But the rich soil
is in spots���sometimes three, five, ten,
or twenty acres in one place, and these
patches of good soil may be on top of a
mountain. But the soil is very fertile
and will produce any kind of grain-
wheat, oats, barley, or rye���and all the
hardy vegetables. I have seen oats
���even feet high at the foot of Mount
Bonaparte, where tbe elevation is greater than it is here. Yes, I think the
north half will support a large and
thrifty agricultural population, and
there will always be a good local market here at Republic."
MINING NOTES.
Toronto stockholders in the Athabasca have received a report from London
of the January cleanup of the mine in
Nelson district, B, C. During January
405 tons of ore were put through the
mill, and from this run $13,200 was obtained in bullion. It is interesting to
note that from month to month the results obtained from the mine are steadily improving. This is due to the fact
that the mine is getting into better
working shape, and that the peculiar
characteristics of the ore have been ascertained by the management, and they
are able to treat the rock accordingly.
For the twelve menths ending. November 1st last the total yield of bullion was
$120,000, an average of $10,000 per
month. The return for November was
$11,600, and for December $10,400, the
mill only running a portion of the time
in that month. The return for the
month just noted, therefore, is somewhat of a record breaker for the mine.
The Bosun mine in the Slocan Lake
district has resumed work. The announcement a few days since was that
it had suipended for an indefinite period, and that Manager Sandiford was
leaving for a protracted visit to England. A New Denver correspondent
says that a force is being put on at the
compromise rate of $3.25 for an eight-
hour shift.
Rossland Miner: The Lardeau country seems to have mines that have high
grade ore. D. T. Eaton, of the Lardeau
country, is in the city. He reports that
some good results are being obtained
from the Silver Cup and Sunshine properties, which are owned by the Sunshine
company, limited, a subsidiary company of the Horne-Payne syndicate.
The Sunshine ore runs 140 ounces in silver, besides gold and lead, and the Silver Cup ore 200 ounces in silver to the
ton. About 170 tons have recently been
shipped from these two properties, One
hundred tons have been shipped by the
Nettie L., and 300 tons hy the Beatrice.
The ore from these properties runs over
130 ounces to the ton.
Gum boots, one buckle, $1.50, two
buckles, $2.00, and two buckles and lace
high, $2.75, at Williams. Two weeks
only to clear,

A CHILDREN'S'   PATRIOTIC   KIM),
Tlie  movement started in (ireenwood
for the ereation  oi a school  children*'
patriotic fund is 0118 which  will  doubtless extend throughout British  Columbia, and the Dominion of Canada as
well,   There   are  in  the   various   provinces, in public, and other schools an
attendance of over 1,000,1)00 pupils, ai.il
an average  contribution of ten   cents
would give   the important aggravate of
$100,000,    a  sunt     which     would     he
of material  assistance to  the Canadian
volunteers, and  to those who are dependent upon them.   There is another
important feature in connection with it,
and not the least  noteworthy, and  that |
is the development of a patriotic spim
anion;.' the children, aud  the cultivation
of a spirit of generosity which in a Selfish
age like this is too apt to be overlooked
in our educational efforts.   The fund in
question should he devoted exclusively
to the benefit of the Canadian soldiers
and their dependent families, and especially to children who may he elicited
by  their  {joint;  to  the   war.    Many nl
those will possibly never return, Whether parents sympathize with the war or
not, they   can  appreciate  the   fact that
loss and  suffering must ensue, and that
it is their duty to eucourage their children to  contribute  to   their  alleviation.
We  are  pleased   to  know   that   such a
movement has,originated in Greenwood
and that the children have responded so
quickly and generously to the needs of
the situation.
THE RACE PROBLEM IN POLITICS.
The MlNBR is in receipt of the Annual
Report of the Council of Public Instruction,' .North West Territory, for
1808. Ii appears to he somewhat late
in being issued, but il is ot BuHiuient interest, even at this dat
perused. The re]
octavo pages oi printed matter ami n
consideration oi t he letter press would
suggest that if the Department of Education in British Columbia would deal
less with tabulated statements of attendance and more with educational
matters, such as appears in the report
tu be carefully
ft contains about .s:i
: efit than it is at present. Mr. Goggin,
the Superintendent of Education, in his
remarks deals with problems of education as presented in the North West, in
a clear and lucid manner, and his recommendations are such as to prove him
a master of modern methods, and not a
fossilized specimen of educational routine. The MixEitnot being perse an educational journal, will not deal with the
Ballient points of this report, there are,
however, one or two observations of
more than passing interest from a political point of view. For instance, Mr.
Goggin says that one of our most serious
and pressing educational problems arises
from the settlement among us of so
many foreign nationalities in the block
or ''colony" system. There are colonies of Swedes, Finns, Bohemians, Hungarians. Jews. Austrian!,Germans, Bas-
sians, Icelanders, .Mennonites, Gali-
cians and Doukhobors,
He says that il would lie criminal to
shut our eyes to the fact that this rapid
increase of a foreign and relatively ignorant population  is at once a challenge
and invitation to our institutions.    This
increase,   he  remarks,  will  add  to our
numbers and wealth in a material sense,
but it cannot be expected that they will,
for some time accept  intelligently these
institutions  which  characterize British
civilization.     Mr.   Goggin    adds   very
pertinently, "It is not thequantity but
the quality of this manhood  that determines the status of a nation."    "To assimilate these different,  races," he goes
on to say " to secure the co-operation of
these  alien   forces,   are   problems   de-
manding for their  solution,   patience,
tact and tolerant, through  lirm  legislation,    Only through our schools getting
early hold of  the children of these settlers can we hope to train them  to live
according to our social  system, and to
understand and appreciate the institutions of the country  which  they are to
form an integral part of.    If in these respects we plaac these peoples two generations  hence  where  their Gnglo-Saxon
neighbors now are. we shall  have done
well.    In  the  meantime the  need   for
action is pressing.   To delay undertaking the education  of these children is
but to Increase the difficulty of assimilation ; to undertake it at once demands
large expenditures and skilled teachers
with something Of the missionary spirit
actuating them."
It will be seen, therefore, what a responsibility tho government has accepted in its policy of immigration,
I'uiler one political system, these will
all become in time ���'elements" to be
pandered to and coddled. [|1 fact, during the last provincial election the Icelandic and Doukhobors determined the
fate of several candidates.

The military spirit of the time is largely reflected in the Canadian magazine

infln nee, aud will probably limit the
demonstrations for which the city is
noted. In social functions, banquets,
patriotic outbursts, public Meetings-, and
other avenues for venting the latent
spirits referred to, Rossland takes the
cake. Figuratively speaking, it would
fiddle if on fire. Xt i.- a splendid sign,
showing the amount, of energy of which
it is capable. It does nothing by halves,
and when it undertakes to get up a stock
boom it goes. It is a place of great enterprise and go; and one reas,,n why
Rossland keeps so well to the front is
that its people will not be downed. If
there are no opportunities it makes
them.
But to return to the present situation,
there is certainly a temporary lull. No
one expects it to be permanent. Business still keeps up pretty nearly normal,
and will probably until the end of the
month, when the reduction in the wages
to the extent of $85,000 or flUO.OOO will
be visibly fell. A good many miners are
going nut of the town, and probably
some others as well The situation is a
complex one, While on the nice of it
the mines have closed for the installation of new machinery and further development, there is n general feeling
that tlie labor trouble is really at the
bottom of it, it being a peculiar circumstance that the cldsing down of the Hull
smeller mid mines should he contemporaneous. The House is in session,
and wiBeacres say that the moral effect
of this new move will be strongly reflected at Victoria, It is rumored here that
half a dozen mines in tl e Boundary will

It is hoped that the smallpox will not
prove epidemic. \ smallpox epidemic
is as had as a lire, as the experience of
Victoria a few years ago will bear witness. However, every precaution is
being taken. Hundreds are being vaccinated, and the physicians are doing a
land ollice  business���the sole  evidence
activity in the midst of a series of depressing conditions. As I said, though,
t  e average Rosslander is lull of hope���
fact, many of them welcome the sit-
. precursor to a better state ol
rs.
Then- has been a great burst of patriotic ardor hire, and the practical
t, st of public feeling is found in the fact
i ll young men in business, with good
prospects, have gone to the front eagerly. There are suns of men, too, like
ll.iu. C. il. Mackintosh and lion. 11. M.
Daly, who are willingly taking their
lives in their hands, actuated certainly
by no hopes of bettering their position
in life. In war. as in other matters,
Rossland does not do things by halves.

"TEE   ABSEHT-MIIfDED   BEGGAR.'
(Flftyl
(Contribution to the cause oi soldiers' families)
When you've shouted "Rule Brittanla," when
you've sung "God Save the Queen,"
When you've finished killing Kruger with
your mouth,
Will you kindly  drop a shilling in my little
tambourine
For a gentleman in kahaki ordered South!
He's an absent-minded beggar, and his weaknesses are great,
But wo and Paul must take him as we find
him;
He is out ou active service wiping something
off a slate,
And he's left a lot o' things behind him.
Duke's son���cook's son���son oi a hundred
kings,
'ty thousand horse and foot going to
Table Bay),
Each of 'cm doing his country's work (and
who's to look alter their things)
Pass the hat for your credit's sake and
pay���pay���pay!
There are girls ho married secret, asking no
permission to,
For lie knew he wouldn't get it if he did;
There is gas  and  coal  and   vittles,   and the
house-rent falling due,
And It's more than rather likely there's a kid
There arc girls he walked with casual; they'll
be sorry now he's gone,
For an absent-minded beggar they will  Iind
him;
But it ain't the time for sermons with  the winter comin' on���
We must help the girl that Tommy's left behind him.
Cook's son���Duke's son���son of a belted
Earl,
Son of a Lambeth publican���it's all the
same to-day;
Each of   'em doing his coantry.s  work
(and who's to look after the girl?)
Pass the hat for your credit's sake and
pay-pay-pay I
There are families by thousands far too proud
to oeg or speak,
And they'll put Iheir sticks and bedding up
the spout, .
And they'll live on half o' nothing paid 'em
punctual once a week,
'Cause the man that earned the wage is or-
ordered out.
Ho's an absent-minded beggar, but he heard
his country's call,
And his regiment didn't need to send to Iind
him,
He chucked his job and joined it-so the job
before us all
Is to help the home that Tommy's left behind him.
Duke's  job-eook's   Job-gardener,   baronet, groom ���
Mews or palace or paper-shop���there s
some one gone away.
Each of 'em   doing his  country's work
(and who's tolook after the room?)
Pass ihe hat for yuur credit's sake and
pay���pay���p��y!
Let us manage so as later we can  look him in
the lace , ,
Ank tell iiiin���what he'd very much   prefer-
That while he saved the Empire his employer
saved his place.
And his mates (that's you and me) looked out
for her.
He's an absent-minded beggar, aud he may tor-
getitall;
But we do not  want his kiddies to remind
him , ,,     ,   .
That we sent 'em to Ihe work-house while their
daddv hammered Paul.
So we'll'help Ihe home that Tommy's left
behind him.

Michael Joseph  Barry, the poet, was

An Irish   American was brought  before
him charged  with  suspicious conduct, !
and the  constable swore, among other |
things, that he was  wearing a  "repuh- ]

The oldest Daughter of the Revolution,
Mrs. Sarah Doran Terry, who lives with
her granddaughter in Philadelphia, is in
her one hundred and ninth year, having
been born at Pemberton, N. J., on September 26, 1791. Her father, Stacy
Doran, was a soldier of the Revolution
and the head of a prominent family.
She rode in almost thelirst railroad cars,
and she remarked while riding in an
automobile carriage recently that this
seemed a fulfilment of one of Mother
Shipton's prophecies: "Carriages without horses shall go."
The mantle of Sir Boyle Roche has
descended upon M. de Blowitz. In a recent issue of the London Times he
achieved a bull which rivals the famous
"Sir, I smell a rat; I see it in the air;
but I will nip it in the bud." A passage
from the Paris I.iberte prompted M. de
Blowitz to this surprising piece of natural history: "I quote this because the
Librete is one of those amphibious jour-j
nals that, waiting to see which way the
wind blows, sometimes unexpectedly
turn the scale."
A "befo'-de-war" matron was teaching one of the little darkies on her plan
tation how to spell. The primer she
used was a pictorial olio, and over each
word was its accompanying picture, and
I'elly glibly spelled "ox, ox," and
"b-o-x, box," etc. But the teacher
thought she was making too rapid progress, so she put her hand over the picture and said: "Polly, what does o-x
spell?"       "Ox," answered      Polly
nimbly. "How do you know that it
spells ox, Polly?" "Seed his tail," replied the apt Polly.
"Before I agree to undertake your defence," said the eminent criminal lawyer, who had been called in, "you will
have to be perfectly frank with ma, and
tell me the whole truth. Did you embezzle the $20,000 you are accused of
having stolen." "Yes, sir," replied the
accused man. "I'll not attempt to conceal the fact from you. I stole every cent
of it." "How inn h nf it have you
still?" 'It's all gone hut about $10."
"Young man," said the eminent lawyer, buttoning his overcoat about him,
and putting on his gloves, "you'd better
plead guilty, and throw yourself ou the
mercy of the court." "I'll do it if you
say so sir. What are you going to
charge me for the advice?" "Ten dollars."
The question was recently asked
Messrs. Rockefeller and lingers how
many enterprises engaged the attention
of the Standard Oil people. The question was provoked by the fact that
neither of the gentlemen could remember anything about a $000,000 check in
which the company was interested.
They both declared that they were often
ignorant as to the details of the office
work, and a $000,000 check would be a
very minor detail. The opposition attorney in the Brooklyn I;nion gas litigation asked the question about the enterprise. Mr. Rogers' view of the case
was somewhat disputed by the attorney
and Mr Rogers said that he would inquire of his secretary, and enlighten
the member of the bar. At the next
hearing Mr. Rogers brought the memoranda from his office, and the footing of
the number of enterprises claiming his
attention was 120.

GRATEFUL SOLDIERS.
Greenwood's   Contingent  Not  Unmindful  of
Their Admirers.
The Greenwood contingent appreciate
the interest taken in their welfare by
our citizens, and bave sent the following
graceful acknowledgment:
Nelson, B. 0 , Feb. 9, 1900.
My Dear Whiteside:
We bave just rececivod your telegram
announcing the most munificent gift
with which the people of Greenwood
City are presenting us, and the whole
of the Greenwood contingent thank you
from all their hearts. The patriotism
and good will to ourselves, which has
prompted vou to such an act ol benevolence, will urge us to uphold the fair
name of (ireenwood through all trials
and dangers which we may have to face
in South Africa. It will interest you to
hear that we are to be drafted in the
same section, and to ride on duty and
in battle together. We are few, but we
Strtist our hearts may prove as stout and
willing as those of men representing any
other town in the country.
Once inure thanking you, and wishing
every one happiness and  prosperity, we
bid you all
very since:
farewel
sly,
Believe ua,  yours

Tbe Nelson Tribune  pays  Lieutenant
Leckie the following well   merited  compliment:
"While tbe rank and file of the. contingent recruited in the Kootenay fur
tho Strathcona Horse are in the main
natives of the land across the sea, the
one officer that lias been alloted to Kootenay is a native of Canada. Lieutenant
Leckie will do honor to tbe land of his
birth, and if tbe fortunes of war permit
of his return, the reception that awaits
him in Kootenay will eclipse tbe send-
off that was given him and his men."
NO MORE BAD NEWS.
The Managers of the War Eagle, Le Roi and
Centre Star Make Ho Changes.
Kossland Miner, Feb. II: There has
linen nothing particularly new in the
mining situation in Kossland since last
Saturday. YV. Kirby of the War Kagle
was seen yesterday, but he only staled
that he hiul already given out all the
news about both the War Kagle and
the Centre Star. "I have no more bad
news," ho said. "The public know all
there is to he said about the situation
up to the presont time���there is nothing
more to add." The manager concluded
by again expressing his great regret that
the two companies in question had been
compelled by the circumstances they
had found themselves in to cease shipping ; adding that the greatest care bad
been exercised here in making the announcement last week, and that he was
satisfied that the premature information
complained of by the Montreal stock exchange had certainly not come from
Rossland.
There wns no fresh news yesterday
from the Le Roi or from tbe other working properties of the B A. C.
Tbe camp generally lias pretty well
accepted the situation, and 1ms taken il
philosophically. The news from outside camps still keeps alive an uneasy
feeling in Kossland, which time alone
| will settle. In the east the stock market has improved, and War Eagle and
Centre St:ir shares have recovered somewhat from the drop they took last work
when the unpleasant announcement
was made.
No one at all posted in mining matters, either bare or in  the east, believes

DEADWOOD, the latest town to seek public favor, is situated in the
heart of Deadwood Camp, about three miles from Greenwood, and an
equal distance from the B. C. Copper company's smelter. It is reached
by a spur of the Columbia and Western railway. It is surrounded by
such famous mines as the Mother Lode, Sunset, Buckhorn and Morrison,
which of themselves assure a Large Payroll, but exclusive of these there
are a hundred partially developed properties surrounding the town, many
of which will become paying mines, so that it does not require very much
foresight to decide that the Town of Deadwood will have in the near
future a sufficiently large payroll to support a city of some importance.
For price of lots and other particulars apply to.

for a moment that, there is any depreciation in the mines themselves, or pays
any serious attention to tbe hundred
and one "fairy tales" that continue to
be wafted about. The only rumor that,
obtains credence at all is tlie presistent
one that the whole movement is connected with the agitation by the mine
owners generally against the eight-hour
law, and despite any statement to the j
contrary, this is pretty generally believed. '

meeting of the stockholders of the   War

niissionor Clute   lo  the   Dominion government on his recent Investigations in '
