Thabanchu by 8.000
Boers.
Loses His Baggage and Seven
Guns-Casualties
About 350.
(SPECIALS TO THE MINISll.)
London, April 2.���The War Ollice
reports that Colonel Broadwood lost
seven guns and all bis baggage iu an
ambush laid for him by the Boers ou
Saturday. Tho casualties numbered
350.
Loudon,   April 2.���The  War  Ollice
has received   the   following  dispatch
from Lord Roberts,dated Bloemfontein,
April  1:   "I received uews  late  yei-
tnrday nfternoon fiom  Colonel  Broadwood who was at Thabanchu, 8H miles
east  of  here,   that   information  ha<i
manned him thnt the enemy  wm   a\ ���
proaohiug   in  two   forcos    from   tbe
north aud the east.    He  stated that if
the reports proved true, he  would   retire towards the waterworks, 17   mill a
nearer Bloemfouteiu, whero   wo hnvo
dad a detachment of mounted infantry
for the proteotion of the works. Broadwood was told in reply that the Niuth
Division of Martin's mounted infnnlry
would march at daylight todny to sup
port him, ugd that   if ho considered ir
necessary   he   could   rotiro   from   the
waterworks    He moved   there during
the  night.   At   dawn   today   ho was
shelled by the enemy, who attacked ou
t'uee sides.   Ho immediately dispatched two  horse  artillery   batteries nn.l
his baggage  toward Bloemfontin, oov
ering some of tbem   with  bis onvuliy.
Some two miles from the  waterworks
the mad crossed a deep nulla,or spruit,
in which during thn   night a   (orce  nf
Boers  had concealed  themselves.   So
well were they hidden   that our   leading scouts passed over the   drift without discovering them,   and it was   not
until the wagons aud guns were entering the drift that   the  Boers showed
theniSHlyes and opeued   tire.    Many of
the drivers of tho artillery horses wiro
immediately Bhot down nt short   range
and several of the guns wero captured.
Tho  renin iuder galloped away covered
by  Roberts'   Horse,   wbich    suffered
lioavily.   Meanwhile    Lieut.   Chester
Masters, of Remington's Scouts, fi.uud
a passage across the  spruit,   uninterrupted by the  enemy   wbiob   tho  remainder of Broadwood's foroo crossed.
They reformed with   groat  steadiness,
notwithstanding all  that   had  previously ooourred.   Broadwood's   report,
which hns just roachnd me, aud which
contaiuB no details, stated that ho had
lost seven gnus aud  all   bis   buggRge.
He estimated all bis casualties at about
850, including  25   missing.    On bearing this morning that,  Broadwood was
herd   pressed  I  immediately  ordered
General French with   two  remaining
canvlry  brigades to follow in  support
of the Ninth DivisiDii.    Tbey later, after a  niagnilloent  march,   arrived  on
tho scene ot action shortly after two p.
in.   Broadwood's  iorce   consisted    of
the  Roynl   Household    Cavalry  nnd
Tenth Hussars, "Q" and "U" batter,
iesof  the Royal Horse  Artillery  nud
Wisher's battalion of   Mounted Infan-
try.   Tho strength of tho enemy is estimated at from H.00O   to   10,000   with
Kims,   tho number of whioh is  not re-
liurtod.''

London, April 8.���Tbo Bloomfontein
correspondent of Tho Timos,telegraphing Kuuday with reference to the
capture of the convoy says: "The
whole affair was a flash intended to
frighten the Free Staters who were
desirous of surrendering to Lord Roberts. When Oonornl Colville arrived,
although ho was almost destitute of
mounted men and bad marobed IS
miles he determined to turn tbe river
crossing at BOme point lower down
than that occupied by tbo enemy. Accordingly, General Smith Dorrien's
brigade including tbe Canadians, at
tempted another drift wbich turned
the enemy's original position. For
some reason, Lieut.-Col. Lint's artillery was detached at 2 o'olock to the
right.where it remained for a considerable period shelling at fi.OOO yards
range, three of the enemy's guns that
were placed iu the open iu tbe vicinity of Colonel Broadwood's encampment. Consequently a large foroe of
Boars visible ou the far side of the
Modder escaped punishment aud retired slowly as our infantry advanoed.
Finally our nuns took up a position on
rising ground between tbe two brigades, thus commanding both drifts
but by that time tbeir support was
not needed, as tbe only resistance to
the udvuuce of tbe British infantry
came from gnus firing shrapnel at fat
too long a range. We could, however,
seo tbo enemy in foroe in a laager at
the foot of some bills lying between
tho Modder and Thalia Neliu nod we
could nlso see tbem move off our convoy to ibe rear."
STRIKES
London, April 8.���The Bloemfontein
correspondent of Tbe Daily Chronicle
telegraphing Sunday and describing
the loss of the convoy says: "The
Boers opened with a murderous fire.
It was simply slaughter. Tbe Kaffir
drivers of the convoy ran away having their loams and"it was impossible
for onr men to hit tbo bidden enemy.
Out Runners fongbt bravely, trying
tn suvo tbe gnus, but onr people were
greatly hampered by tbe Kaffirs, wbo
run hither und thitbor looking for cover from the fearful fire that poured
in on nil sides. Meanwhile the enemy
wore hotly pressing Colonel Broadwood, whose -nouuted troops were completely surrounded. The British showed uiugnifiaout bruvery. Tbe officers
were quite cool and composed directing tbo operntious. Tbe opportune arrival uf reinforoemeuts saved Oolouel
Kroudwood from annihilation. It is
reported that two guns bave been recaptured. The whole force is retiring
ou Bloomfouteiu."

Bushman's Kop, Sunday, April 1.-
I'lio Boors wbo woro bidden in the
"Pmit when the British guns woro
captured yesterday wore commanded
by Reiuhmnn, a Qormnii-Aniniionn.
The roooipt of this dispatch settles tbo
disputed point arising from the rtis-
ciepanoy in the dispatch from Bushman's Kop of Satnrday, and Lord Robots'dispatch of yosterday, referring
to the time tho engagement between
tbo British and tho Boors occurred,
wbich is now shown to be Saturday
��nd not Sunday, as might have boen
judged from the niossags of the Commander-in-Chief. Tho Boors retired
this morning when they discoevred
the British scouts, leaving two Dutch
military attaches, ono of them dangerously wounded, in the hands of
���be British. All the woundod nre
doing wsll.   Everyone  agrees  thnt  if
" nart "0* been for Broadwood's splendid handling of his troops not n  mom-
n* of the force would   have  escaped.

Tho Health of the regiment is generally good. The men who were left at
Belmont when the ndvauco began are
being transferred to tbis place. Reports from tbo hospitals indicate that

Hamilton, April 3 ���Two hundred
men employed by the Hamilton steel
works went out on a strike yesterday
morning, causing thn laying off of 160
othor workers aud closing of the
works. The strikers were employed
as finishers in nine and ten inch mills
and olaini that under the western
scale of tbe Amalgamated Association
of the Iron and Steel Workers of
America, they were entitled to an advance of four por cent, in their wages
on Maroh 1. At this advance was not
discernable in their last pay, although
Major Wilcox was aware it wns duo,
tbey refused to work any longer until
the inoreuse was granted them. Tbe
workers in tbe finishing departments
uuinber 100 and were compelled toquit
work when thn other men   went  ont.
St. John, N. B., April 3.-Indications today are tbat a strike of I. O.
R. employees will take plnce if the
telegraphers demands for a two weeks'
holiday is not granted. Tbe executive
of the telegraphers communicated with
the Minister of Railways hoping that
tbe latter will use his influence with
the general manager. It is snid that
the traianmen; eiiginoofs and conductors are in sympathy with the telegraphers and, it a strike is ordered
will give tbeir support, and if necessary, will join in a walk out with tho
telegraphers. Tbe opinion here is that
the company will bave to accede to Ihe
demands or submit to a general
tie-up.
Pioton, Ont., April 2.-Goo. W.
Piatt, the manngor of tbo Co-operative
Employment Association of Cauadn,
was committed (or trial by the Police
Magistrate hare Saturday ou the charge
of using mails with intent to defraud.
Tbe fuels in the case furnish an interesting story.
About u fortnight ago nn advertisement appeared in tbe Toronto papers,
stating that "A yonug lndy of good np-
pearanne was wanted as companion to
n lady goiug to tbe Paris Expositiiu
at a salary of IM per month, for six
months, and all expouses paid. Address George W. Plntt, Pictou." Numerous complaints from parties answer
ing the advortlsomeut renching the
Attorney-General's Uepartmeut, Inspector Rogers was detailed to look
into the caso. It was ascertained that
no less than fourteen bundled applications had been sent in for the position, soven hundred applicants forwarding their photographs. A few
days after forwarding their names,
tho applicants received a circular,
which aiming other things, snid that
if a foe uf II to covor expense of advertising, eto, aud un agreement to
soud twenty per cent commission of
the lirst mouth's salary were sont,
the applicant would by roemmended.
Of the eight hundred to whom this
ciroulur was foiwaidod about fifty had
seut tbo nocassury two dollars, when
the law stepped in. A largo number
of applicants aro members of well

London, April 3.���(13:10 a. m. )���
Qneen Victoria left Windsor Castle at
half past nine last night euroute for
Ireland. Her Majesty is ooomponied by
Princess Christian and Princess Henry
of I'.ath-nliorg, and is attended by the
Countess of Autrime. Hon. Harriet
Phipps, Sir Arthur Biggs, Private
Seoretary of the Queen ; Sir Fleetwood

Qu3en had driven out to Frogmore
during the afteruoon amid considerable
.���nihn.-:.i.-iii ou the part of tbo towns
people and her departure irom the
station was quiet. Never in the history of tbe Great Western and London &
North Western Railways have greater
precautions been observed to protect
the Royal tiniu than those which had
been perfected when Her Majesty
started north tonight. Those officials,
wbo have superintended the transportation of Princes of nil nations in
and out of Windsor,bave exerted themselves beyond precedent to insure the
safety of tbe Royal train between
Windsor and Holyhead. Royal trains
seldom run at night, but tbe Queen
wbo is especially adverse to fast travel
stipulated tbnt the trip should occupy
11 hours, although it is usually covered iu six. Tbis slowness, at a time
when fcafflo is lightest, was one of tbe
reasons for deciding upon a night run.
Leaving Windsor tbe Royal train waa
in tbe hands cf the Groat Westorn
Company's oflicials to Bushberg,where
the Loudon & Northwestern Oo. assumed the responsibility. At raid-
night when the journey by way of
Creve nnd Chester to Holyhead begins tbe officials of the latter road will
hnve little sleep tonight. Operators
and trnck inspectors at every station
along the route, no matter bow small,
were required to be ou duty half an
hour before tbo train was due, to examine personally as to signals and
switches and see that ull was in proper working order. Tbe pilot engine
named "Prince of Wales" ran a quarter of nn hour abend of tbe Royal
train uud after its passage all lines
wero kept clenr. The Royal train wns
drawn by two locomotives.

Ottawa, April 3.���Genernl Hutton
issued an Order-in-Comici! giving
Lient. Colouel Kitson precedence over
other Liout.-Colonels in tbe Canadian
Militia, aud also putting Major Stone
over the heads of the Canadian olliceis
who were his seniors. An order now
bus been passed restoring Colouel Kit-
son to his original position. At present be would be senior to Colonol Aly-
mer, wbo is iu command. Major
Stono wns put over Lient.-Colonels in
the Canadian Militia by Goueral Hutton, and this order hns been cancelled.
The order of General Hut ton was iu
direct viulattnirof rc(.uluti<i,;s, which
provide that Imperial oflieers serving
with Canadian Militia shall or,ly bo
entitled to tbe rank of precedence
given tbem by their commissions.
Tbere is a paragraph in tho Militin
Act which provides that officers of
the Imperial Army shall have precedence ovor Canadian Militia oflieers of
tbe same rank while in Canada, but
this was at a tinie when tbe British
army was largely represented here
and worked with Canadinn Militia
officers. It is probable the uot will be
changed in this regard. In the case
of Major Stone, who hold tho local
rank of Lieutenant Colouel, he was
placed over ofllcors who were his seniors.

THE LABOK TKOUBLES.
Ab anticipated by The Miner, it
van not intended that the muckers
should stand iu the way of a peaceful
eettlemeut cf tbe unfortunate differences that havo caused buch disturbance to mining operatious iu this district during the paBt ten months.
The Sandon scale has been aocepted
111 its entirety, and the meu have no
longer nny reason to hold out. Under
the Saudon agroemeut operations
throughout the Slocan have either been
renewed or preparations are being
made to that end. The Nel��ou, Ymir,
and other district miueB will be scenes
of activity in a Bhort time. At Hobs-
land the managers and the meu hnve
reached au agreement over the difficulty that arcne there���whotbor or uot
oontract work would be allovod.
Throughout the Boundary country the
same spirit of conciliation will doubtless spread,aud if nut alroady no doubt
within a short time the whole of Vale
and Kootenny will be hives of mining industry.
It is a happy termination of a most
unfortunate atfair, wantonly precipitated by a Qovernment who had no regard for the publio interest when tbo
opportunity ottered for a little cheap
political capital. It bun cost the country untold 1 none,mil-, and ib tbe sacrifice it has been called upon to make to
the demagoguery of tbo men who have
been ruling it. All the injustice of
it has fallen on tbe mine owners, and
it will be remembered to their credit
that it hns been through their advances
peaoe at last has been olitainod. It is
worthy of remark, too, that the self-
control of tiio miners and their respect
for the law have been admirable.

tbis one, bnt it is supposed to bo made
up mainly of ConservativeB who do uot
believe in party Unas, but who cannot
support Mr. Wilson, or Mr. Martin, or
Mr. Cotton, or the no-party Liberals.
What it staudB for it would puzzle
forty Solomons to make out. There
will be au Independent pnrty, nnd it
is believed thnt events nre shaping to
launch a Labor pnrty. Here are seven
parties, all struggling for recognition
und all claiming to be tbo real fltiv-
iouiH of tbo Proviuce. Could there be
a stronger argument iu favor of forcing a division on the old pnrty lines,
and thuH minimising the confusion'/
Each clique or faction,   let  ub  say,
will   elect   its     representatives.    Mr.
Maitin,   baviug   the   prestige  of  the
Government behind him, will pull out
with ten or a dozen ; each  of   the others will hnvo four, five, or six, no two
in harmony,   nnd   one   jealous  of the
other.    Can any one imagino how governmont would bo possible under  suoh
ciroumstancesV   The     factious   would
unite in driviug out Mr.   Mnrtin,   but
theu what?   We would be a fnr asever
from a settled,   stable   situation,   and
if there   is   one  thing   on earth  this
Province wants more thnn  another   it
is  political  rest   and   stability.    The
leaders   of  tho Cotton party   and  the
Turner party will   have   much to answer for if they persist iu goiug   to the
extremity of   putting   up   candidates.
The    bolting    Liberals   are  patriotic
enough to repudiate   Mr.   Martin ;  let
them   oarry   their   patriotism   a   step
farther and join   forces with the  only
legitimate party   that   will   be in the
field.    "What!" they   may  exclaim;
"help to put the Conservatives in power?"   Why not: Mr. Mnrtin has hopelessly divided the   Liberals,   and  thns
tbrowu the gamo to the Conservatives,
if those opposed  to him will   sacrifice
tbeir Bellisbness  nnd join  together for
the good oi the   Proviuce.   With   Mr.
Martin smashed, be   would disappear,
and   tbe   Liberals   would  bo  ngnin a
unitod party.   If the Conservatives do
net give  ns   good  government,   there
will be plenty to  unite   to  turn them
ont   when  the   Legislature    runs  its
course, and then will coins the turn of
tbo Liberals.    To have   stable government we roust have paity government.
One of the two   parties must havo the
first try.    The acoideut of Mr.   Martin
has given tbe chance  to the Conservatives, and nothing now   can   inteifere
with the inauguration of  a  new   and
better era in our   political life but tbe
selfishness nf the fnetions.

The Rosslaud Liberals claimed only
half the delegation to tho Vancouver

to the Bonndary. At their meeting
the other night thoy elected one delegate, and clothed him with1 the authority of the whole five. Why not have
done tho snme here? It Beeins a useless

ff NELSON DAILY MINER, TUESDAY, APRIL j, <t)6d,
WEAPONS  OF ANIMAL3.
Claws, Teeth, Hum. and Hoof* All
Come Iliimly at Tlmei.
Many animals, Including both those
that kill and those thut are killed, uro
endowed with special means of offensive
and defensive combat. Tho latter aro often furnished with weapons of effective
value, such as tho horns of cattle and
goats and the hoofs of horses.
Even some of tho largest animals
which are not carnivorous ami may be
���aid to havo uo enemies possess special
organs that they call use for indicting
wounds, tfiich aro tho tusks of elephants, tho horn of tho rhinoceros and
the antlers of the moose. Their primary
purpose, however, is to aid iu procuring
food and in cleaving a way through forest aud jungle.
With beasls and birds of prey wcap-
ens of attack are Indispensable. Among
the most highly developed aro the retractile claws of the cat family, tho cut*
ting and tearing teeth of the wolf family and (he talons of eagles and hawks.
Even iu lower forms of life we find highly specialized weapons, chief among
which are the fangs of venomous serpents and the stings of bees, wasps aud
hornets, rendered far more effective by
tho presence of n powerful and bouio-
tluies deadly poison.
While noting the liberal endowment of
creatures that prey upou animals, we
must not lose sight of tbe fact thut certain vegetarians are also equipped with
weapous ot combat. Tho mules of the
bovine and the goat tribes In tbe wild
state uso these weapons largely in their
combats with rivals of their own species,
while tbe females employ them chiefly in
defense of their young.
The bull fights wilh the head down, often with the eyes closed, and the horns,
being usually short and nearly straight,
can bo used only one at n time, aided by
the toss of tho powerful neck. The horns
of the cow in all the commoner breeds
are turned somewhat forward, so as to
be of the utmost service, and the faithful
mother fights for her calf against dog or
wild beast with her head raised and eyes
wide open.
A stag brought to bay sometimes presents his antlers to the hunter. With
some species these branching horns are
shed at certain seasons, and during their
renewed growth are for a time soft and
useless as weapous. They gain strength
and toughness at tho season when rivalry and battles between tho males are la
order, and it is therefore natural to infer
that the antlers aro intended chiefly for
this purpose.
Against many foes, however, man Included, the deer family find their best
weapons in their hoofs, with which thoy
strike and cut as with knives, sometimes
killing dogs, wounding hunters and at
other times cutting coiled ruttlesuukes
iuto pieces.- y ';,

the Btate schools thero was caught iu the
act of reading this book of fairy tales,
which hud been prohibited by the censor
on tho ground that certain of tho tnlea
might be applied to Russian conditions
and ltussinn politics. The boy expluiued
that the caretaker of the school buildiugs
bed lent him the book. The principal of
the school reported the caretaker to tho
police, and on the ground of this denunciation the offender wns sent to Siberia.
The officials of tho Institution, together
with several parents of pupils, were so
indignant at the conduct of the principal
that they drew up a protest describing
his denunciation as a mean snd despicable act. The only consequence was that
the officials lost their posts, and, together
with the residents who had signed tho
protest, wero expelled from the provinco
of PoltOVB for three years. Tho order of
expulsion wus extended to nil tho relatives of the offenders, so that 17.r> persons
were sentenced to this severe punishment
on account of a book of fairy tales which
in other countries is given to every child
to read.
Women Students In Rnasla.
If a Russian woman wishes to study at
any of the universities in her own land,
etiquette does not allow her to do so until
she is married. Not infrequently she
goes through the civil ceremony of marriage with a man student whom probably
she has never seen before, and this marriage is quite legal, though perhaps the
couple may never speak to each other
���gain, '.'a the other hand, If they like
each other and they ao desire, tbey are
married for life. If they do not, the mar-
rluge Is dissolved when their university
course is finished, and they are free to
marry some one else.
The celebrated mathematician Sonya
Kovulevski went through the marriage
ceremony with a student whom she then
BSW for Ihe first time nud who afterward
became her husband. The education of
women in Hiissiu stands better thnn In
most European countries owing to the
persistent cfTorts of the Uussiuu women
themselves.

i Tlm pinkots placed hy Ihe miners on
the Athabasca and Granite and Poor-
nan roads wore called oil' on Sunday,
Biid yesterday morning miners were
BOaroer in Nelson than they liave been
for some time past. Sixty meu were
taken on at tbe Granite and Poornian

mine is again in shape tt omploy more
111011 tbey will be employed. The Aiha-
uaHCU, which lias been operating slielit-
lysbortlianded.will take on all the men
it needs and will work to its full capacity.
The wages the Oranito nnd Athabasca nre paying are not exactly the same
as tli'< Slocan scale calls for, despite
the statements made to tbat effect.
The scale adoptod by tbe mine managers as outlined in last Saturday's
Miner is the Bcnle which is being paid
In the Nelson district. This is $3.25
for drillers and from $3.50 to $!i for
mockers, with a uniform reduction of
$1 per day for board. The mine mau-
agera aro, however, hiring only tbe
very best underground muckers and
nre paying tbem $!) a day and if tbey

more. This, at least, is the policy
b��ing pursued by Captain Duncan of
the Granite and Pnnrman. Ho has selected none but good men for the underground work at li per day and for
tbe men on the surface he pays from
II PO to $11 aocortling to their worth.
Tbe minors see the justice of tho cap
tarn's position und have gone to woik.
Mr. Wilks, tbe leader among the

"I am glad Unit affairs have beeu

Wilks to a Miner mini yosterdny.
"Thero is uo one bettor pleased with

That. W. J. G. Dickson was not

was evidently written later than tbe
one from which tho above is an extract. It tells more of the battle in
which the Canadians distinguished
themselves and speaks of Cupt. Harry

THE LIBERAL CONVENTION.
Prospects of a Very Lively Timo at the
CoBBt This Week.
The Liberals of the Provinoe are
somewhat agitated over tho convention
to bo bold at Vancouver on Thursday
uf tbis week. The Conservatives have
been having so niuuy conventions of
late that the Liberals thought thore
was one big convention coming to
them nnd llus they decided to hold at
Vancouver this week. Well defined
rumors have come from tho Const recently that Mr. Joseph Martin, the
pnsent Premier of the Province, would
make a big effort lo capture the Vancouver convention and in support of
this statement the personnel of tho Vancouver delegation to it was advanced,
Hut up country there are iiiuiiy strong
Liberals who insist upou beiug counted in when the Liberals of tho Proviuce meet nnd these refused tn be slated as amongst tbe lervile slaves of the
Hon. Joseph Martiu abovo mentioned.
Of this latter ilk are tho Liberals appointed by the Nelsou Association to
go to Vancouver. They leave tonight
but just who they will be is uot yet
decided, However, whoever tbey
are, they will go to tbo Const decided
to oppose two things: One is, the
introduction ol part} lines iu tho
forthcoming Proviucial elootiouB uud
the other is to oppose to tho last, Hon.
Joseph Martin us tho leuder of British
Columbia Liberals. The convention
promises to be a very lively one and its
outcome will be watched with the
greatest interest by both Liberals and
Conservatives alike.

Thn Nelson Opera House has heen
somewhat unfortunate in its career in
booking attractions which have been
positively no good. One of the most
unfortunate bookings was that of the
Columbia Comedy Co., whioh held tbe
boards last night. There was absolutely nothing about the performance
to commond itself to intelligent theatre goers. Tho plnyy was a wretched
ono and the actors and actresses worse.
Until (be agent of tho Opera House
can book porformancee that can better
please the pnblic it had better keep
the Opera House dark.

Mr. Shelton flaid that tho people nf

A DOUBLK FUNERAL.
The Impressive   Ceremony Took Placo
on Sunday Afternoon.
Never befoie in the history of Nelson did such au impiessive funeral
take place at that of the late Harry A.
Gervan and Win. Way, on Sunday afternoon. It was impresive for several
roasons, first, because one of the deceased was one of Nelson's most popular young meu, and secondly because
it was the first military funeral that
ever took place in the Kootenays.
The Piesbyteiian Church was crowded
whon tho service over the bodies took
place and when tho cortege formed upon the street iu front of the church
many hundreds of citizens bad gathered. The procession moved away
fiom the church as follows: Filing
party of the Rooky Mountain Hangers,
Mavim gm division of the Hocky
Mountain Hangers hatling tho gun
carriage which bore the body of Gervan, chief mourners, Alux McGibbon,
uncle of deceased j T. J, McCamuion,
n iisin of deceased ; hearse conveying
the romain of Win. Way, followed by
bis brother, and members of Young
Canada Olnb, of which Mr. Gervau
had been a member since coming to
Nelson, members of-Nelson Minstrels
and friends. The Salvation Army
band preceded the body and their
strains ns they played appropriate
musio, made the occasion doubly im
pressive. The cullin of the lale Mr.
Gervan wbb covered wilh boauti-
ful floral tributes to the memory of
the unfortnnate young man whose taking off waa so sudden. Among these
tributes were a pillow with the words,
"The Boys," from the members of
tbe Young Canuda Club, and tbe Nelson Ministrels, and n wreath placed
on the casket hy T. J. McCammon,
bearing the words, 'From loved ouos
at home.''
It had boon arranged tbat Mrs. Cole
should sing u solo nt the service nt the
ohurch but uiifortunutely the sndden
obange in the timo of the funeral had
not beeu communicated to her and she
arrived nt the Church us the cortege
was moving away.
The streets of the procession were
lined by hundreds of citizens as the
bodieH of the two uufortunutu victims
of the accident at tbe powder works
\inre convoyed to their last resting
place. At the cometary the firing
squad fired a volley over the grave of
Private Gervan and iu thoir plot the
Odd Fellows performed the last sad
rites over the body of Mr. Way.
on the group. This property is undoubtedly ono of the best in tho district Mil will go far toward making
Nelsou known as a mining centre.

VENUS   MINE.
Grent SbowDg For the Year's Development   Work.
Yestordny was annivoisary day nt
the VennB Carup, on Morning Mountain, juHt one your ago the first work,
consisting of crosscuts to prove tho
vein, was commenced. From that timo
until tho present the development
work has been pushed aud today the
Vanus Oompany, after but one year of
work, have onongli ore actually blocked out to justify the erection of a 10-
stamp mill, the amount of ore now
ready for stumping boing 17,00U tons.
This amount of ore haH been blocked
out by throe tuuuels whioh have been
run in ou tbe vein, and connections
made by upraises, which huve proved
tbe oro to be of a high grado aud continuous throughout all the workings.
No. 1 tnnnel in in 108 feet, No. 3, 4311
feet and No. II, ull) feet. Upraises anp
crosscuts 3111 loet. Total development
1,111)5 feet. The vein is about six feet
ln width with an averago paystroak
ol two foot and is between well defined walls, laying ut an nnglo of about
118 degrees. The oio is decomposed
gold quartz, carrying iron and u small
percentage of galena, and the average
values over the whole mine uro nbout
fill to the ton.
Development work will be continued
with a full force. Tho company are
awaiting returns from a shipment of
ore sent to a Culifonia linn to determine tho best method ol treatment,
and will, probably coinmenco tho construction of :f mill within the next
three months. Tbe Venus Company
are the owners of the mineral claims
Venus, Jnpiler, l Irion, Mars, Astral,
Cosmopolitan and Cambridge. All the
development work sn fur has been
done on Ihe Venus claim and further
exploration will no doubt lead to tho
discoverj of otli3r voins of good  value
purposes taking nn active part in the
campaign. Its members will give a
vigorous support to the political paity
which gives a positive understanding,
in the eveut of success ut the polls,
to repeal the Eight-Hour law or modify its so-called obnoxious clauses.
The local Liberal-Conservatives held
a political love feast here last night,
when addresses wero delivered by C.
E. Race, of Rosslnnd, and several
prominent citizens. Conservative opinion in the Boundary has crystalized iu
favor of the selection of Hon. 0. H.
Mackintosh, the hero of a hundred political lights, as tbo local candidate.
Among old line Liberals, who do not
relish the Martin dispensation, the ex-
Governor seems to have many euthusi-
astio friends and supporters. The
feeling exists that just such a constructive statesman us Hon. Mr. Mackintosh is needed after the elections fnr
the solution of many perplexing social
and political problems. Old timers
from the east,familiar with his career,
are recalling the peculiarity confidential relations he enjoyed with the
late Sir John A. Macdonald. To tho
deceased premier ho was simply
"Charlie," and numerous have boen
the forlorn hopes that "Charlie" at
various periods, bas led to victory.
The training Mr. Mackintosh gained
during an active participation in politics for upwards of thirty yenrs is simply invaluable, und tho knowledge he
thus secured in statesmanship and
practical politics promises to beadvau-
tageonsly used in clarifying a Provincial condition at once murky, turbulent and perilous.
Max Runts', wns iu tbe city today,
fiom Brown's Creek, where ho has
boen developing his group of claims,
the Iron King, Knpper Queen, and
Columbia. He is confident of being
able to make continuous shipments
within tho next six months. On the
Iron King he has a tunnel in 06 feet
on the ledge with no sign ol the wall,
and a shaft is down 40 feet in good
mineral. A 30 foot tunnel on the
Kupper Queen hns shown up a good
ledge. The Columbia has n 3'1-foot
shaft on the footwnll and a tunnel 88
feet on tho hanging wall. Tho lead
here is about 235 feet wide on tho surface and his both walls well defined.
AssayB ffoin tho group in which
Charles Comings, ol Grand Forks, has
a joint interest ran as high as I'M in
gold and four per ccut coppor.
Systematic development work will
be commonced next week on the St.
Ann's group situated on the left bank
of the East Fork of Kotlle River, and
about 12 miles above its junction witb
the North Fork of Kettle River. Tho
distance from Gruud Forks is about
forty miles. This group, whicli is
owned by D. D. McDougall, A. Lang-
ford, A. McMillan and F. H. Knight,
comprises tho Bt. Ann's, Sunday
Queen, Rose of York, and Rose of Lancaster claims. On the Sunday Queen
aud St. Ann's open cuts exposed a
large, well defined ledge of gray
quart/., heavily miueralized with buI-
phides of iron and copper nnd traversing the full length of both claims. The
oro lies between walls of blue lime
and porphry. Three miles northeast
of the camp is the Marlorlmugb
group, also of foni claims, owned bv
the same parties and named tho Mail-
boroiigh, Blenheim, Nelson nnd Wellington. Crosscuts on the Marlborough
and Blenheim show a well deflued
eight-foot ledgo of quartz, heavily
stained and minoralized with oxides
and sulphides of copuor.
