Patriotic Words of Lord Roberts at a Presentation to Him Yesterday by
Capetown  Citizens.
Capetown, Dec. 11,���At the reception in honor of Lord Roberts yester-
day,whon the liritisli commander rose
to reBpond after the presentation to
him of the sword and casket, all present rose to their feet, cheering and
waving handkerchiefs. The demonstration continued for some minutes.
At its conclusion Lord Roberta made
an eloquent address. Aflor expressing
thanks for the honors accorded him,
he said the war in South Africa had a
peculiar interest for him in us much as
it enahled him to bring, to what he
hoped was a successful conclusion, the
work entrusted to him twenty years
ago, that of quelling hy force of arms,
If necessary, the aspirations of the
Boers to render t-emsuivos independent of British control. Referring to
his abortive visit to the cape iu 1881,
he said : "The wisdom of this world is
foolishness with Hod. The guiding
hand of the Omnipotent will bring
good out of what to our finite under
standing wat> the most unfortunate
war of 1881, for that war eould not
have consolidated the whole Hritish
Empire as firmly together as this has
done, because it was fought by regulars alone whereas the present war
Was fought by the militia, the yeo-
mtuny and the volunteers, the admirable and worinanlike colonial contingents, all fighting as brothers in arms
Under the dear old Hag of the Quean."
In this respect Lord Roberts said he
$ield the unique position of the first
field marshal! having the honor to
command such an imperial outburst.
He waB convinced, he declared, that
this spontaneous outburst of patriotism was not ephemeral. England had
only to give the signal and her sons
would again Hock to her banner from
t"e ends  of the world.    Never had   a
mother more reason to be proud of her
sons than had England today. God
had brought them out of what im the
dark days of December had appeared
to them the valley of the shadow of
death, and they could now remember
the days of tribulation with deep
gratitude for tho mercy vouchsafed
Lord Roberts then paid a deeply
moving tribute of gratitude to those
who had worked with him. lie added
that his interest in South Africa
would uot cense on leaving its shores,
but he should watch its sctlcment
with utmost eagerness. Dwelling upon the necessity for co-operation between tlie Dutch and English, he said
it would be his pioudest boast if he
could claim to have done nothing
but what stress of war had compelled
to hinder the friendly fusion of the
two iaces in the Republics. They
must try to forgive and forget all that
tended to bitterness of feeling, leaving
the idea that nothing remained to be
atoned for  on either side.
"God has given into our hands,"
said the Field Marshall, "a g.eat heritage for which a heavy price has been
paid in the blood of the best nnd
bravest; and we must not be neglectful of the trust, as we have been in
the past, but. must he able to give a
good account of our stewardship and
must remember there are other duties
than national glorifications."
He declared to could n.t better conclude his speech than by quoting the
first verse of Kipllngs1 recessional:
"God of our fathers, known of old,
Lord of our far-flung battle line
Beneath whose awful   hand we hold
Dominion over   palm and   pine.
Lord God of Hosts be with us yet.
Lest we forget, lest we forget.''
Smoke, Cinders and Noise of Engines
May Soon Ho of the l'ast.
New York, Dec. 11.���Final tests are
now being made on the New York
and Putnam Railroad of a new system
of storing power. If it proves a success, it is said that it will revolutionize the locomotive building industry
and solve the problem of producing a
smokeless, noiseless, and cheap motive power. Officials of the New Yolk
Central and Hudson River Railroad,
the Pennsylvania Railroad, and representatives of Rochester Street car
lines will he present at a private test
to be  made today or tomorrow.
Steam still does the work. The revolution is in the method of producing
and applying steam. Water, by subjecting it to enormous pressure while
heat is being applied, is made to store
a quantity of power in the form of
heat���a quantity which would be impossible under normal conditions. Its
capacity to Btore up heat is limited
only to the strength of its enclosing
tubes, which arc of stool, able to withstand a great bursting pressure.
Healing plants at intervals along
the length of the railway do all the
work of superheating the water, and
the present locomotive, firebox, and
tender are to be things of the past.
Tbe superheated water Is forced, under great pressure, Into a tubulnr reservoir under the lloor of the car. Its
Store of heat is retained by thick insulating jockets of magnesium, und,
according to the inventor, tho loss of
heat by radiation is almost imperceptible,leven in winter.
By an ingeniouB device tlio water is
i released, drop by drop, into a high
. pressure cylinder, where, through Its
own store of heat and having room to
expand, it bursts into steam. The
working power of the motor ia limited only by the exhaustion of its supply of superheated water. This it is
planned lo renew ut the plants along
the road. Long distincos, it is claimed, can be traversed without recharging.
Nearly the full pov, _r of the steam
Ib utilized, it is sail, by means of
compound engines. The exhaust of
the high pressure cylinder is admitted to .a low pressure engine on .tbe
same truck���a feature novel in this
It is maintained that when used in
this form the stored power will propel
a train at a high rate of speed. In
tests made between High Bridge and
Dunwoodie a rate of forty-five miles
an hour has been obtained.
The saving over steam is said to be
about one half, for, while it is estimated that tlie average yearly cost
for operating a car by the old system
is four cents a mile, by means of superheated water, it is asserted, the
cost is not more than two cents a
Each car is to be managed by one
man. If ic is designed to use the power for long runs, as from New York
to Buffalo, a locomotive can be used
as a storage car,in which arc contained sufficient cylinders to carry tlie
train that distance without recharging, and the use of cylinders on each
car will thus be made unnecessary.
Among those who are interested in
the new system are \V. Seward Webb,
formerly president of the Wagner
l'alaec Car Company; lion. Andrew G.
lllair, jMiniHtei of Railways of Canada; and J. \V. Allison, United Slates
representative ol  Canadian   railways.
Victoria, B. C, Deo. 11.���Neither
the people in Charlotte Island nor
those of Atlin had a chance to cast
their ballots in the recent election for
tin) Dominion House for lluiraril, the
necessary papers not reaching them
in time.
Durban, Natal, Dec. 11.���Replying
to n resolution recently adopted by a
mass meeting here protest log against
the attacks on Sir Alfred Mliner, Governor of Cape Colony, by tho speakers
of the Afrikander Congress, Sir Alfred
has telegraphed that while he retains
the confidence of tho loyalists he can
afford to disregard such attacks. Ho
added that thero was no fear of tho
Afrikanders deflecting  the policies of
annexation   for   the conquered   ten!
Dally Mail, that Queen Wllhelmlna
will intervene after her marriage.
This is meant to blind the public to
the real facts, which arc that she
wrote personally to every Europeun
ruler on Mr. Kruger's arrival in Europe and from two countries at least,
Fiance and Russia, received conditional promises of help in the direction of intervention, but the plan
failed in Berlin.
C. C. Thompson, a Vancouver Boy,
Talks of His Experience.
Vancouver, B. C, Dec. 11.���C. C.
Thompson, of the first South African
contingent, formerly Duke of Con-
iiii ii;; lit 'k Own, Vancouver, lias arrived home and was heartily greeted by
his friends. He replied as follows to
questions asked by a correspondent;
"Our marching was very favorably
commented upon. One niglit, after a
hard inarch, when wc had outstepped
all the other regiments, the Gordon
Iliglilaners sent a message to our
camp which was as follows: 'To the
boys of the Royal Canadian regiment:
What in hell are you trying to do
with us'," "
Thompson fought trora 9 until
wounded at 4 :30 at I'aardeberg. He
was a few yards from Major Arnold,
commanding tho Canadians, when he
fell. Everyone liked Arnold ; he did
well for the regiment. Thompson
"I was 500 yards from the enemy
when I fe'.t as if my arm had been
smashed with a sledge hammer. I
jumped up, shook myself and ran.
Then I felt a sting in the leg. I ran
on and tho next second I felt as if my
back had been ripped wide open;
then all was blank. My arm will bo
stiff for life. You couldn't see the
Boers. We only saw one man all day.
ne got up on the trenches and
pushed n tree aside. There was a yell
from the crouching Canucks and the
next day we found him behind the
trenches at the foot of the tree. We
counted sixty wounds in him. The
hospitals were all right. I would
have had no kick coming if the orderly hadn't touched me for 83.50, all I
Thompson looks in perfect health in
spite of his three wounds.
Christiania, Dec. 11.���Henry Ibsen,
the dramatist, in the Orebladet, reiterates the statements he previously
made against the Boers, claiming
that they themselves formerly oppressed weaker peoples. He says he thinks
the Boer sympathy manifested In so
many countries is unwarranted and
rather ridiculous.
London, Deo. 11.���Dr. Leyds and ill
friends aro spreading  a  report,   says
the Amsterdam   correspondent of  tbe
The   Lardeau   Eagle   of   last  week
J. Ernst, a knight of the grip from
Nelson, representing tho California
Wine Co., waB In town on Satuday.
While here Mr. Erneat secured a bond
upon James Comerford's property at
the head of McDonald Creek, known
as tho Mountain Vlow and Blue Jay.
The bond covers from now until A ug
ust 1, 1001. If the deal goes through
all right it will be the biggest one
ever turned over in the Lardeau. Mr.
Comerford's assessment work last
summer proved the property's Win th.
There is no doubt about it, Mr. Comer-
ford has one of the biggest and lest
surface sliowingB ever produced in
this country and Mr. Ernst is more
than fortunate in securing a tie up
on so merited a property. That the
bond will be taken up even before ItB
expiration the Eaglo has little doubt,
for Mr. Ernst Is a rustler from the
toes up and with the financial assistance of seeking investors at his back,
a happy combination Is formed; and
all to the mutual advantage of this
district. Gentle people, wc have a
grand country with unbounded resources, nnd the time is not far distant when thousands of people will be
kicking themselves for not having
come in here sooner. With transportation a certainty for tlio immediate
future we need have no fear. Our
mineral, timber and agricultural re
sources will do the rest.

Toronto, Dee. 11.���Ilarwlck, Aylcs-

Reynolds, of rlrockvllte, has filed at

ford's statement of claim in the .10,-
000 slander action against N. Clarke
Wallace, M. P., for West York, in
connection wilh ante-election charges
made during the recent campaign.
Senator Fulford asks that the action
be tried at Broekville, and makes_the
following statement:
"The defendant is a professional
politician, and was ut the time of the
publication of the slander complained
of, a candidate in West Yoik.
"On the 25th day of October, 1900,
the defendant at a public meeting in
Toronto Junction falsely and maliciously spoke and published of the
plaintiff the following words:
" 'Senator Fulford paid 850,000 to
tho Government for his title, and is
now advertising in Europe that be
was made a Senator by the people of
Canada because of the incalculable
benefits that had been eonferrcd_upon
them by his discovery iu pills.'
"Meaning and implying thereby
that the plaintiff had corruptly bribed members of the Cabinet and had by
means of bribery and of corrupt ami
dishonest practices obtained his appointment to the position and office of
Senator, and was unworthy of the
confidence and trust of tlie people of
Canada, and that the plaintiff by ren-
son of such corrupt and dishonest
practices was unfit to occupy the office
of Senator, and had been guilty of
the ciime of purchasing, or giving a
reward, or profit, foi tlie purchase of
the said office, and fuither meaning
and implying that the plaintiff was
publishing false and misleading advertisements boasting of his appointment and falsely exaggerating the
medicines manufactured by him.
"By reasorAif this the plaintiff has
been greatly tnjured in his character,
credit, and reputation, and iu liis
office as Senator, and in his business
as a merchant, and has been brought
into public scandal, ridicule, and
contempt. "
They May Control That Body During
Coming Session.
Ottawa, Dec. 11.���The Government
will have control of the Senate very
much earlier than is generally supposed. If the Liberals who were appointed by the present Government
would attend regularly, they Would
be able to outvote the Constirvati rOfl
before the approaching session is over,
as some ol tlie latter will be unable
to attend. When the Liberals came
into power, they had nine Supporters
in the Senate, and now they have 2M,
with there vacancies. One of these
was caused by tho death of Senator
Mi'I ie in"', ii a,I may be filled any day.
The other two will have to be declared vacant by tho ,Senato, as Senators
HeeBor and Sir Frank Smith have not
been present for two session!, Senator RceBor Is a Liberal, so that the
strength of the Government in the
Somite will only be increased by two
voteB out of three appointments. This
will make thirty Liberals. It Is cal-j
culatcd that about thirty-four will be'
enough to have control, ufl there arc a
��� umber of Senators who are too Infirm to attend the sittings. As there
are HI Senators. 41 votes are actually
required for a majority over ull.

They are in Nelson and Bids Will Be Asked
For-Building to Be of Granite
and Pressed Brick.
The plans for the new Postoffice,
Customs office and Inland Revenue
building for Nelson arrived in the
City last evening from Ottawa and
are now in the bands of Mr. James A.
Maedonald, of Cane & Maedonald,
architects, who was appointed by the
Department of Public Works to superintend the work during tlie construction of the building.
The building when erected on the
Government's lots at the corner of
Ward aud Vernon Streets will present
a splendid appearance. The lirst story
and basement wall of the building,
which is three stories high, will be
built in rock-faced marble with dressed marble trimmings, while the second story and brick work of the attic
will bo of pressed brick. The roof
wiil be laid with slate and the cornices finished in copper. In viewing
the plans this morning a prominent
contractor of the City suid that the
building will probably cost over 875,
000 before it is finished.
Tho building is to face Vernon
Street witll a frontage of 59.II feet extending backwards along Warn
Street 120 feet, or to the rear alley.
At the northwest corner will be a
largo tower which projects a considerable distance above the building proper upon which will be a tall Hag
staff. Four windows will admit light
to the interior from the front of the
building while on_thc west there will
be seven windows. In the Second
story there arc many windows on
both sides while tbe attic Btory will
be ornamented with several dome
windows. Over the dormer window at
the front will bo placed the figure,,
"1901" showing the year of tlie erection of thu building. The main entrance to the postoffice department
which is 59.3 by 119 feet, is from Vernon Street by heavy double
doors approached by stone steps..
The entrance loads to a tyl-
ed Hour vestibule. In the tow-
or which is to the right of the entrance will be a fltalrway leading to
tlie otliees on the second lloor.
Hack of the main building will he
an annex, lis.l'i feet, facing Ward
Stteet and extending aloug the alley
:.'.", feet. The annex is only one story
high and will he used as an examining niieiii and warehouse for" the Customs department, and the gas Inspector's office.
This will be approached by granite
steps and over   the   dour will   lie   in
scribed "Custom and Inland   Revenuo
Tho basement will be under the
main building, 59.3 by 39 feet, and
will be used for heating purposes. Arrangements have been made for the
storage of a large quantity of fuel.
The plans do not state or show how
the building will be heated.
The quarters on the ground floor
which will be used for the distribution and delivery of the mail will bo
3(1x50 feet. The entrance to this for
tlie receiving of mails from the trains
will be at tlie rear.
From the Ward Stroct side there
will also be a stairway leading to the
offices of the second lloor. On this
lloor, und near the centre, is a large
corridor leading from the tower to tlie
rear of the building, from which open
six offices, all of which will be used
by the customs and inland rovenue departments. To the east of the corridor is the customs long room 11,6x66
feet. This is where the general business with the public will be transuded. Adjoining this Is the customs collector's office which Ib 11.0x17.9 feet.
Adjoining and to the south of this
will be the office of the postoffice inspector, 11.6x18.8 feet. On the west
of the hallway, and udjoining the
tower will be the Inluml Revenue
long room, 11.0x17.9 feet. Back and
adjoining this the iniand revenue collector's office 11.al8.3. Just back of
this and near the stairway from the
Ward Street entrance Is the inland
revenue labrntory 18.6X16.4 feet.
The attic, or the third story, will
be set apart exclusively for the caretaker's quarters. In the front of this
story is a parlor 18.6X17.8, Adjoining it is the dining room 17x17.��.
There is a hallway leading to the
tower, which will be set aside for use
as a private library. At tho rear of
the parlor and dining room are four
rooms, tbrefl to UBed as bedrooms and
one as a kitchen. Each room Is
about 18x16 fee,t.
Each office is furnished with a wash
buflin, and each story Is furnished
witli toilet rooms with tile floors. The
Interior of the building will be finished in Cosst cedar. All floors that
are not tiled will be laid double with
heavy Coast fir. All the material used
for the construction of the building
will be obtained locally iks far as possible.
The tendors for construction must
bo in the hands of James R. Roy, secretary of the Dominion Public Works
Department, on or before January 3.

An exchange speaks of "tho social

nothing socialistic about this "doctrine of public utilities;" it is an economic question pure and simple. The

Word comes from Vancouver that
Mr. Garden is to be allowed to retain
his seat in the Legislature,on the pretext that his resignation was not accepted. This ie a foolish story. Mr.
Garden's resignation took effect the
moment he was nominated as a candidate for the Federal Parliament, and
the formality of acceptance by the
Speaker of the Provincial Legislature
was not necessary. Resides this, it
is inconceivable that either Mr. Garden or the members of the Government would be parties to a trick of
that kind, even if the purpose of it
were a feasible one. Such trilling
with the law would have a bad iniluenee ou _ public scnitment that in all
matters of a political nature is already loose enough. We shall be quite
safe in concluding that there is no
foundation for the report. At the
same time thero will be a general
wish to see Mr. Garden back in the
Legislature. Should he devote himself to politics, there is every reason
to believe that a career of great public
usefulness would await him.

In Mr. Houston's paper this morning it is said that, before putting the
motion for the adoption of the report
on the Thompson investigation, the
Mayor made a statement in connection
with the matter which he desired to
have incorporated in tho minutes.
The statement comprises about half a
column of matter. We do not gather
from the report of the pioceedings
whether this request was granted by
formal motion, but without it the
Mayor has no more right to have his
opinions recorded on the minutes than
has the man on the Btreet. It will be
an exceedingly irregular proceeding
without justification or excuse of any
kind, if the statement referred to
goes on record, and if there it will be
tho duty of the Council, at the first
meeting, to order it. expunged. It
would be a dangerous precedent to establish, one that would court all sorts
of abuses in the future, if it were allowed to a Mayor to put his harangues
on record as part of the proceeding of
tbe Council.

There are a great numher of Conservatives in Yale-Cariboo who have
much to learn of their obligations to
their party,and of loyalty to the principles they profess by being members
of it. In Nelson a very considerable
Conservative vote went to Mr. Oalliher. In (ireenwood, according to a
local paper, the Liberals stuck to
their candidate, and the Conservatives
voted for all three. In Midway they
voted almost to a man for the Liberal
oandidate. Conservative electors who
oan do thifl must care littlo for thoir
principles: perhaps it would bo nunc
correct to say they have no principles
to care for. But they should take
into consideration that tlicy owo
something to the candidate who puts
himself into their hands, and relies
on their political professions to sec
him through. If men are to lie held
justified in such grave tiifling as this,
no person of spirit and honorable feeling will care to offer as a   candidate.

little plays, which have become bo
familiar that we do not apprehend

jjVlrHfliilii Slaves Who Wero Whirled

Bin 1790 a colony of six runaway alnvoa
Mint' lei (lie Sle.ikliiiil-c vnlley, tho first
tf llint line ever seen in .Minlisou counly.
Jho history o�� these six slaves is full of
^tomiiniv, tier they were no cnnnium men.

Waves from Virginia nnd hntl heen bound
��Dt by their muster for 21 yenrs on a
Whaling vessel that was owned by a com-
Kny In New Bedford, Mass. The ship
B' started for tile south sea, to be gone
K| cruise of three years.
(Hvhcii about Till miles out nt sen from
New Bedford, the lookout discovered a
large wliule and ordered those six sudors
to go in a small boat nnd follow the
frhfi!'.'. When lie eiiine to the surface, one
Of the sailors, v.-lio was nu expert, threw
a barpoou at the whale. Inslend of striking him Just back of tho head, which is
the usual way, the harpoon struck the
whale about ten feet from tho end of the
toll, which is of a fibrous nature and
caused no loss ot blood to the whale.
Then the great monster shot off wilh
wonderful rnpidity toward the middle of
the ocean, carrying tho boat, and that
vai the last tho captain of that whaler
over saw of his six sailors,
This narrative, as related by Paul Cuff,
the sailor who threw tho harpoon, reads
like a fish story, but the circumstances
connected with It afterward proved Its
truthfulness, as It was corroborated iu
(nil by all the other sailors. After this
whale had gone about 50 miles In a
straight course nt sea, carrying the sailors behind it In a small boat and some of
the time going nt the rate of In miles an
hour, it turned Hb course back toward tbe
shore and then turned again back to sea.
Sometimes tlie whale would dive down
500 feet and rise with great fury and
beat the ocean to a white foam. At Times
he would spurt a volume of water _00
feet In the air.
"All this time," said Paul Cuff, "we
were riding over the sen in great splendor, harnessed to the biggest fish In tho
world aud making the fastest time on
record." They saw and passed great
merchant ships bearing their country's
flag, but they had no ling, no country, no
home. They pussed an English man-of-
war that gazed with amazement at the
singular sight. They thought it wns the
devil Incarnate h-fched to a drngun and
fired a broadside at them, but their
cannon balls passed a mile behind the
sailors, so rapid was their course. On
tliey went like a comet shootiug its fiery
flame across the sky.
After riding in this style for almost
three dnys up and down the ocean hitched to a whale's tail by a slender cord the
great fish took u singular turn nnd a
'hicky one for the six sailors, lie steered
his Course southwest nnd by accident
Struck the bay nml outlet of the Karitnn
river, on tho coast of New Jersey. The
water was deep, and ho followed ita
Course for two miles. His iioso struck
the piers of a bridge that cost .7,000,
��� nd It fell with a crash into the river. The
whale then struck an oyster sloop and
shivered thnt to atoms, drowning three
sailors. On he went, but the witter soon
became so sballo^v Unit he lauded nu the
, shore, and iu three hours he was dead.
By this singular accidcut the six negroes became the owners of the whale.
I They sold it to an English oil merchant
In New York city for $l_,0tK) in gold who
i did not know they were slaves bound out
' in the marine service and not entitled to
the  whale  under tho  lnws.     His  title,
1 however, proved good, for the company
��� in New Bedford never heard of the
e transaction in 20 years. The whale was
, really worth about ipi.OOO and was the
largest ever found on the Atlantic coast.
After receiving their money the slaveB
made an equal division, which gave them
$2,000 each, and, through the ndrice of
their leader,   Paul Cuff,  they  set their
. faces toward  tlio western  wilds of the
, state of New York.    When they reached
' Albany, they met n Pequod Indian who
wus returning  from  piloting  some  mis-
j sionaries to the Stockbridge valley.   The
l Indian gave them a line description of
I the country, aud tiicy induced liiiu to re-
[ turn  witli  them  for a stipulated  price.
I He did so and lived with them in this lo-
I callty  until   he died.    They   bought  on
contract with the Oneida Indians about
' 200 acres of land for each at a nominal
j sum.'  Afterward  the  titles   were  confirmed by the state of New York.    They
all lived to a line old nge, and all were
j highly respected.
f All of tlicni died here except one, who
i returned to New Bedford after a lapse of
, DO years and died there about 40 years
[ ago. Tbe remains of the others nre laid
i to rest side by side iu the old Indian
J "graveyard at Vnlley Mills, nnd there is
I nothing whatever to mark their graves.
|- There was ouce a sinull slnb at the bend
I. of, one grave of rude form and chiseled
i by an unskilled hand. Tlie inscription
] ttai as follows: "Jack Morgan, n rutin-
! way slave, who chased the whale."  Tlieu

D, Weaver, the clothing man, was a
little careless Monday night, When
closing time came he took in the usual line display of goods hanging outside to attract attention���at least he
thought he did. It has been his custom of late to hang two natty suits
over the front entrance door, placed
there by a pole with a hook. Hut ou
the night in question ho forgot these
two suits and there they bung until
the weo hours next morning, when
Fred Hosquot and his worthy right
hand supporter came along to open up
shop and concluded to teach Weaver
a lesson. They got the two natty suits
down and took them over to the
Crown Point bar, where tho first
morning's smile was drank by pawning the goods. Other smiles were
taken by others, until Weaver didn't
know which was best to do, go and
take the suits out or let them remain
in pawn. He finally settled tbo bill
and will probably be moro careful in
