London,   Dec.    31.-Miserable rain,
fog and  dirt made Cnristuias week of
evil memory for England.   Depressing
gloom, in thorough harmony with the
weather,   settled   over   the   country.
.Tbe coasts were strewn with   wrecks,
oommerce   was out of   joint   and   the
public was bitterly digesting the criticism of the   Hritish army.
.     The demand for   Major-General   Sir
Henry E.Colville's resignation,thrown
i as a sop, only served to whet the ravenous   appetites   of    those  who    are
howliag for the responsibility   for reverses in South Airiaa   being brought
��� home to Individuals.    More heads are
demanded.    Where  so   many must be
blamable,   it   is   felt the selection of
Colviile is woefully inadequate, if not
unfair.   Indeed, it is already said had

have never been recalled.    Tho bitterness felt by these Yeomanry at   being
compelled   to surrender,    because,   as
thoy allege, Colviile refused to  render
the aid in his power, never   died out.
and It will probably   result   in one of
the most Inte'esting court martials in
the  annals of thc British  army, upon
the   result of   which   will depend the
fate of several  other high olTlCBrs who
have proved unequal to   the occasion.
The Liberal papers comment severely on the acceptance by tie War Oflice
of a contingent   of Maoris from   New
Zealand.
The Star says: "The eifect of this
stupid blunder on tbe Dutch will be
terrible. After declining to employ
Indan troops wc are taking a paltry
hundred Maoris. This will not only
infuriate the Dutch, but it will insult the Indian troops, who will regard It as a declaration of their inferiority to an inferior colored race. Go
on, Government of muddlers!"

There are few original pictures of
General Washington in England, hence
the discovery of another mininturo Is
interesting. It is by Samuel Folwell
and is dated 1701. Another by the
same artist is now in the possession
of the Historical Society of Philadelphia, dated 1700. The new find is
supposed to be an excellent likeness.
It represents Washington wearing a

Glasgow, which the Christmas and
New Year season has made notorious
for drunkenness in its streets, has acquired possession of an old mansion
house situated in a deserted part ot
Ayreshire at a cost of ��7,000, where
habitual drunkards will be sent for
terms varying from three months to
two years. The authorities hope to

The Manufacturers' Record, speaking in behalf of English trade, says:
"The men who have dominated thc
metallurgical interests of the world
for so many years, whose trade ramifications extend to every civilized
country, are not the men to yield
to American supremacy with out sharing In it hy becoming a factor In
America's production. To these giants
ot industry it is not very material
whether the source of production is
England or Pennsylvania or Alabama.
Tho peoplo of America should welcome the incoming of this capital, not
only for its material benefits, but for
that close kinship Into which the
United Stutes and Great llritain would
be drawn."
George VI. Watson's desertion of the
HendcrsonB  and   his   employment by
the Dennys.who have never built sailing yachts of any  description, to construct  Sir   ThomM   Lipton'a   seoond
America's cup   challenger has created
much   discussion,   and    hitherto   has
not been explained.    A representative
of the Assoicnted   Press   learns, how
ever, that Mr. Watson   was Influenced
by the benefits of the Dennys' testing
tank,   which   be first tried  with   the
yacht   LysiBtrata.    After this he utilized   tho   tank for a   series of experiments   to    determine    the   best   hull
shape     for   Shamrock   II.   before   he
signed the contract with  Sir  Thomas
Upton.    He is convinced that he has
discovered   a   hull muoli   better   than
anything that he has   ever   designed.
The testing tank is In reality  a pond
'.'00 feet long, 23   foot   broad and nine
feet deep,    Ovei it is a railroad   with
a car drawn by u   stationary   engine.
The modol Is attached to the carriage,
and   the speed   from   evory model for

recorded.   There aro arrangements also for testing at all keel angleB.    The
apparatus Is said hero to  be   tho only
one  of its kind in the  world.    By Its
means Mr. Watson has   tried   a dozen
models.    The   choico of these  experiments ean bo   judged from bis admission that it was duo to   a fault of the

avers that the Lindley disaster could

said it is to be fought out with some

When he returned from South Africa, General Colviile says be fully acquainted the War Office with the
facts. After .ome time he was informed by General Sir Evelyn Wood,
the adjutant-general, that Lord l.ansdowne, then Secretary of State for
War, had directed him to say that
General Lord Wolseley, the commander-in-chief, had approved of General
Colville's resuming his Gibraltar command. II. learned unofficially that
the army board of five of thc. highest
officials of the War Office had considered his statements and Lord Roberts' despatches on the subject,and bis

inquiry. To his intense surprise,
Adjt.-Gen. Wood, on Uec. 81, notified
him that Mr. William St. John Brod-
erick, the newly appointed Secretary
of State for War,held him responsible
for the loss of the Yeomanry, and ordered him to quit his command immediately and hand over his resignation. On my pointing out that 1 had
obeyed tho orders to tho letter (declares Gen.Colviile) he said his orders
wero only intended as a guide."
Gen. Colviile alludes to some of the
Yeomanry being millionaires, and
quoted Lord Roberts ns saying it was
his duty to sacrifice his force for the
Yeomanry.
"It will be remembered," Gen. Colviile says, "that the corpa in the elite

eight times that number."

lie said:    "The  partial   collapse,   or
rather eveuing-up, like water   finding
its   own   level, is not a   very difficult
problem to solve.    Over-capitalization
was dangerous enough, nnd   this   applies to all   groat mining  companies,
but   the   vital   cause   was   fust,   the
American Spanish     embrogllo;   nert,
the South Afrieun war;  then the Chinese trouble, and, again,the prolongu-
tiou of the   Transvaal   struggle.    The
latter locked up hundreds of   millions
of investments, and thus surplus capital, once obtainable   whenever danger
threatened   the   London   market, became a fixed   factor   in   South Africa.
Then   again   the     Australian   mines
made a bad showing, the   rich   veins
or ore gave out,   and on   top of   this,
the   Stratton   Independence   mine   in
Colorado was   reported weak and likely to give out.    Then   came the report
ot Mr. Hays Hammond, nntagonstic to
tho Camp Bird, said to he equal or superior to the   Independence, und   one
could feel something   in   the   nlr that
meant tiouble.    I   was   in   London at
the time and naturally enough preached   the   gospel   of    British   Columbia
mines, worked upon a practical basis.
Capital     representing   many   million
promised tn go  to   British   Columbia,
unel 1 firmly   believe   this   will   tako
place, for there must be n   pretty war
tax levied upon   South   African  property.    Of course,   Mr.    Robinson,   the
gri'Ut South   Afrieun    authority, considers this would be   killing the goose
that laid the  golden egg, and I agree
with   him;   he is a   wonderfully well
informed   gentleman,   and if he turns
his   attention   to   British   Columbia,
coulil make it a  second   South   Africa

II. Morris, auditor   for the   War   Department, died   this morning  at   tho

killing Morris, cut his own throut and
shot himself  neur   tbe heart.    It was
thought ho had a fair chance of recovery, owing to  his remarkable physique, but was determined to  die, nnd

two days he refused to  tuke   nourishment ns far as possible,and this morning   at 7   o'clock   died   quietly   and

ment   shaft   and  other improvements
have cost a large sum.    The company,
therefore, is unable to pay a dividend
at this time but we all know   that   it
has large reserves  of   ore at the mine
and that it is one of the best mines on
the continent.    It is   also known that
the improvements  cost,  according   to
the report of the   management, about
a half million of dollars, and for theso
teasons   no   dividend  was declared at
ihe recont meeting   in   LondoD.    The
machinery will enable the shaft to be
cxtonded to the   2,000  foot level.    Wo
also know that large numa liavc   been
spent on other properties and tbat the
smelter capacity at Northport is being
doubled in  order to   take   care of the
tonnuge which the B. A. C. mines are
capable of producing.    We are certain
that these   mines   can   take   care   of
themselves   now   and that as soon   as
they begin shipping  on   an  increased
scale will be able   to   pay   dividends.
It is probable that the Le Roi   at   the
next  quarterly meeting will  be   able
to declare a dividend.    So,  while   the
suspension of the   London   and   Globe
may have   a temporary   bad   effect on
the British market so far as the mines
of British Columbia are   concerned, lt
will be only   temporary, as the investors there   will   quickly   realize   that
there is   real   merit   in the mines  of
Hritish Columbia nnd that the trouble
Is nol due to any luck of merit on tbe
part of the propeities here, but rather
to   the   mnnipulntion   of  the London
stock brokors.    Then, it must be considered   that   thore are other   British
capitalist   of   standing   who have acquired interests   in the mines of   this
and other districts who  arc   perfectly
satisfied   with     tho   results   attained
and who intend to  go on   with   their
ventures.    In other words,   the   camp
and the  country   are   too  prosperous
and in too good a condition to be seriously   affected by what   is   simply a
stock deal.

THE TWENTIETH CENTURY.
If any of our readers do not know
what the Ninetenth Century haB done
for the world, wo respectfully refer
them to the larger periodicals, which
at this particular time are full of its
achievements. Aoeording to them,
there never has been such a century.
The world has made greater advanees
in all these things that go to form
and develop our civilisation than any
two similar periods in its history.
This is probably right, and at any
rate it hardly becomes those who have
lived their lives in it to dispute the
claim. The Nineteenth Centary has
been a record breaker���we will let it
go at tbat. But whatever it has
been, it is not natural that we should
part with it without a feeling of sadness. A dying year is depressing
enough to those who think it worth
while to mark the passing ot time; a
dying century is much more so. We
may profess to rejoiee at the birth of
a new one; but what has tbe new one
done for lis, that our smiles should
dry up all the tears in our eves, as wo
bid an eternal farewell to the old one
that nursed us and made us what we
are?
Tomorrow it will be the twentieth
century. It may help to drive away
a little sorrow at parting with our
old familiar friend if we reflect that
while these words are being read the
twentieth century has already dawned
for many. The fact is it will be nearly twenty-one hours old before it envelopes Nelson. If the surface of tho
earth were divided into longitudinal
strips of forty degrees each, numbered
one, two, throe, four, five, Bix, seven,
eight, and nine, beginning at the
one hundred and eightieth degree of
longitude, the conventional line at
which west becomes east and east
west, tho strip embracing Nelson and
ull the coast, out into tbe Pacific,
would be thc last on which the new
year and the new century dawn. On
the sixth stroke of the clock at midnight tonight we are passing from the
oltl century into tbe new; but twenty-
one hours earlier the inhabitants of
East Cape, Siberia, have already entered it. They arc the first in all the
world to wolcomo the Twentieth Century. Their midnight has already
come and gone, and to them thc Nineteenth has ceased to be.
While East Cape will be the first to
welcome the new century, the first
sun will dawn on Antipodes iBland,
down in the direction of the South
Pole. This is owing to the inclination
of the earth's axis. If there wero no
inclination, the sun would rise at
thc same moment all along the line of
tho one hundred and eightieth longitude. But owing to the tilt it appears
earliest at points south. Coming
northward from the Antarctic Circle,
there is no land until Antipodes Inland is reached, and the inhabitants
of that little spot will sue the first
sunrise of the Twentieth Century. It
bus utmost duwnod there as we in
Nelson arc putting up the shutters
and going homo to dinner this _l.lt
day of December, 1000.
It Is our duty, not less than our
pleasure, to wish tho readers of The
Miner on this memorable occasion
something more than a Happy New
Year. May thoy experience every
happiness and prosperity during Hint
P'irtlon of the New Century it may be
their   lot to enjoy.
matter of that objectionable tinge. A
correspondent at Montreal sends extracts from Quebec papers, rejoicing
that the day will speedily come when
the French-Canadian race will dominate the English. The low birth
rate in Ontario ia pleasing to them.
They see in it their day of triumph,
when they shall have a majority in
the Dominion and Canada shall be
once more theirs. "Courage, valiant
French Canadian mothers," exclaims
one of them, "French domination
will come about through you, and
your grateful country will elevate
you on its altars. " This is a paper,
which, The Times says,was "brought
up by Mr. Tarte to support the Government during the last election, and
which is now carrying to extremes
the race war then inaugurated."
Another extract will be interesting:
"The proof of the mutual repulsion
which separates our two races is to be
found in an article in an Ontario paper, which declures that the English
of that Province would prefer to be
annexed to tho States than to submit
to French-Canadian supremacy. Ho
much the better. Do it, then, quickly,
for the French-Canadian supremacy
which you so much detest is coming
regularly, pitilessly, as the large
hand of a clock. At the hour marked
it will submerge you beyond return.
Annex youiselves, Malthusians of
Ontario.while there is yet time. Later there will uot be time,for you must
remember that when we uro stionger
we may not permit you."
The New Y'ork Times is not sensational, and it is not meddling. It
has no interest in our politics, and
gives space to this Moutreal dispatch
merely us information to its readers
in regard to what is t-anspifing in a
neighboring country having intimate
social and commercial relations with
its own. The ruce cry started by Mr.
Tarte to carry the elections is not
dying out. French-Canadians are so
inllamed by it as to ulreudy speculute
on what they will do when the greater birth rate of Quebec gives them the
majority. But they Deed not wait for
that. The British of Canada are in
danger of being swamped without thc
prolonged aid of barrenness among
the mothers of Ontario. We have recently seen what the French-Canadians
can do in the East. We shall realise
with equal if not greater alarm a few
years hence, what Gnlieinns and Douk-
hobors can do in the West. Between
them,Canada may remain a possession
of the Empire, but it Villi no longer
be British. 	
There's trouble over the construction of the new system of waterworks
in Winnipeg, and nn investigation la
being he'd. The work was done by
the City itself, with day labor. A witness was asked if a certain piece of
defective work would not have been
pulled down and reconstructed if done
under contract, and he was obliged to
admit that it would. "That is one
difference between day and contract
labor," said tlie examining counsel.
Ybb, one difference; but in Winnipeg
and Nelson und other places where
business methods are discarded under,
pressure of demagogues and socialists
they will find other and more serious
differences as time goes on and the
vicions doctrine develops.
Mr. Williams, tho United States
Consul at Ki robe-ley, und mnnagcr for
the UeBeers,   who went through   the
���siege rendering great service, is in
Chicago at present and of course a vic-
I tint tn the interviewer. It is pleasant
to read the closing sentences: "You
can put it down, the British soldier
has uo superior iu the world ; ho has
not degenerated one jot. The officers
are the weak spot, and yet braver,
cleaner men you never saw." This
Boer war presented the severest test
of both that the world has seen for
many a day.

NEW COAL, COMPANY.
Will Develop the Measures of tho
Okanagan and Boundnry Districts.
Application is not being, made to
the Dominion Government for a charter incorporating the Pacific Coal Com-
paiiy,with a capital of 84,000,000. Sir
William Van Home, B. B. Angus,
Charles R. Hosmor, E. II. Osier, W. I
D. Mathews and several others are
named as organizers, anil the object of
the company is to develop coal properties in the legions lying between
Greenwood, Venticton   and  Okanagan
Lake.
Recent developments in this section
have demonstiated the presence of
large areas of ooal measures, some of
which give promise of being equal to
anything in Hritish Columbia. Near
Fairview, somo 20 miles from the
south end of Okanagan Lake, i_ a basin many miles in extent, where num-
��rous croppings of coal have been lo-
dated and the small amonnt of work
done up to date has'proved the product
to be of excellent quality. The belt
appears to extend over to Keremeos,
and tho Similkameen side of the
range. Geologists who have made a
study of this section have pointed out
that all the conditions are favorable
for extensive areas of coal lands.
It is understood that the new company have acquired large holdings in
tnls part of the Boundary country,and
that work will begin on a largo scale
as Hoon as the charter is  arranged.
The formation of the new company,
backed aa it will be by some of Canada's most noted financiers, will mean
much as an aid to the mining aad
smelting industries of the Boundary
country. This is especially the case
Owing to the fact that railroad facilities can be readily obtained by the
promoters of the coal company.
* It is the intention to erect ovens and
produce sufficient coke to supply not
only local smelting wants, but to compete in the entire interior markets.

i NEWS OF I
I        THE TOWN t
7 Trail is seeking incorporation, A

Tomorrow morning the Nelson and
Fort Sheppard train will leave from
the Union depot.
A meeting of the Nelson Hockey
Club will be held this evening at the
Hotel Hume at 8 o'clock.
The Operatic Society is making arrangements for an operatic concert
to bo given in the Opera liouse next

the society's undertakings.
A reception will be tendered to the
Rev. J. liurtt Morgan, the new pastor
of the Haptist Chuich, by the members
of the congregation on Wednesday evening January 9, at the church. A
good programme has been arranged
and a pleasant time is looked for.
There will be a turkey shoot tomorrow morning at the foot of Stanley
Street, commencing at SI o'clock under
the supervision of 13. \V. Steele. All
comers are welcome. Rifles and ammunition will be supplied on the
grounds.
The Maple Leaf Dancing Club will
meet at Fraternity Hall tomorrow evening. The feature of the evening
will be the social dance which will be
given after the class. An orchestra of
tive pieces will be iu attendance. The
affaii promises to be an enjoyable
one.
Spokane amateurs are going to produce "The Geisha" in the spring and
llurr Steiner, formerly of Nelson, will
be the conductor. That will guarantee thc musical perfection of the production if Heir Steiner has as good
voices to work with as he did in Nelson.
The offices on the second floor of the
K.-W.-C. block were completed today
and somo of them will be occupied tomorrow. Some of those who will go
into the new otlices tomorrow or
shortly, ure Messrs. Galliher it Wilson, Drs. Rose and Hall, Dr.Morrison,
dentist; Messrs. Oracey and Rosen-
be rger.
Thc session of Chambers held by
Judge Korin at the Court House this
morning was some.vhat longer than
usual and during the entire session
only one case was discussed. It was
tbat of Hyde & Titawoith vs. Webb,
for the gurnishee on moneys due the
defendant from the Athabasca mine.
The case was adjourned until next
court.
As stated in The Miner last Friday
a street car service to the new depot
will be inaugurated tomorrow morning. One car will run over the line
from the corner of Baker and Stanley
to the eastern terminus, while the
other will take the run from the sta
tion to the southern portion of the
City.
The Vancouver Province rises to
remark : "Tlta Nelsou Tribune of the
J5th hist, is responsible for the statement that, 'P. Burns, of Calgary, will
eat his lirst Christmas dinner in Nelson today.' Will Mr. Burns please
rise and explain? He really looks
more than one yeur old���but then one
never can rely on appearances!"
Nothing can better show the progress of Nelson during the year which
closes toduy than the growth of the
telephone systi-m. A year ago today
there were IM subscribers and today
there are 860. A year ago It took
three operators to attend to tlie central orllee: now five young ladies send
their sweet "helloes" over the lines.
During the year the company has
spent 810, not) in imprjving the local
Hystem and during the coming year
other improvements will be made.
The ice committee of the furling
Club has taken over one sheet   of   lee
at the, rink and   all day  tomorrow
the votaries of the stone and broom

the game. Only those who have membership tickets will Dc allowed to
play. Mr. .'rank Tamblyn will be ,,n
hand at bis store all day to issue mem-
bersliip tickets. It is desirable that
all intending toTfein should du so at
once as the rinks will be selected on
Wednesday night.
The cold weather of tlir- past two
days has enabled the rink management
to secure good lee and the rink will
be formally opened at H o'clock tonight,. An effort Is being made to arrange for a band. Thero will also be
���bating uitnorruw afternoon and to-
mienow evening. Tu those who purchase season tickets at 8"> the Tramway Co. will sell LM) street car tickets
for 91 for use to and from the rink.
These tickets can be had from the conductor!  of  tbe  cars, at the tramway
oflice or rink. Notice boards will be
put up at the Josephine and Stanley
street corners on Haker Street telling
when the rim. is open tu skaters. Arrangements have been made for refreshments at the rink.
TIRED OF NOME.
Mr. Dooley Would Sooner Be Somewhere Nearer Home.
"Not any more Nome for me," said
W. 0. Dooley, who spent some time iu
western Alaska last summer, and who
is now in Spokane. "A streak in
miles wide from Bering Sea inland
for 150 miles has been thoroughly
prospected and on only two small
creeks have raying results been obtained. Any of the area will prospect,
but the bench claims of the Anvil
and Dexter streams alone hnve shown
enough to make a man stay in the
country for a week. The mouth of
Anvil Creek is about, five miles up
Snake River from Nome City, and
good paying claims have been located
right from the junction nearly to its
source, but that does not make room
for 'JO,000 men. Krom Dawson 4,000
miners came down over the ice in
early spring and until the Fourth of
July, when most of their gold dust
bags had played out, times were good
in~.Nome City from a commeiclal
standpoint; after that everything
was dead. The ships remained over
for a week and by that time many of
the unfortunates who had made the
trip had found that there was nothing
in the country for them and they
went back with the vessel on which
they came.
"The boats went back to Seattle
with nearly as many men on board as
when they arrived.
"I left, Seattle myself on May 20 and
arrived at Nome City, June 14, so
that I was in the midst of thc greatest rush. I found there 7,000 men, and
the majority of these who had not
money to take them back Immediately
had to be removed by transportation
companies free of charge. Nome City
had then 8,000 inhabitants, but it
was impossible to get a job of any description. Most of the men went
stranded,and there was tbe utmost indignation expressed against the transportation companies whose representations, the would-be miners said, had
induced them to come to a barren
waflte. Next summer the bench
claims along tbe two streams I mentioned will be developed, but unless
there are soue startling improvements
there will be nothing more."

Down in Southwestern Missouri, a

quickly cures Coughs, Colds and Lung
troubles of the severest nature, removing, as it does, the cause of the affec-
ton and leaving the parts in a strong
and healthy condition. It is not an
experimental medicine, but has stood
tlie test oi years, giving satisfaction
in every case, which its rapidly increasing sale every season confirms.
Two million bottles sold annually.
Bosche's German Syrup was introduced in the United States in 1808,
and is now sold in every town and
village in the civilized world. Three
doses will relieve any ordinary cough.
Price 75 cents. For Sale by W. F.
