Writes a Convincing Letter Jto
His Brother. Ghrlstiai Proy
Gontlnuance of the Struggle
Means Ruin to Free
Bloemfontein, Feb. 5.��� (Tuesday.)
���The text of a portion of the letter
from Piat Dewet, chairman of the
peace commission, to his brother Christian Dewet appealing to the latter to
surrender, published in the Post today
is as follows:
Dear Brother���I hear that you are so
angry that you have decided to kill
roe, accusing me of high treason.
May God not allow you opportunity to
shed more innocent blood. When I
Baw we were beaten by the liritish, I
wrote to the president requesting him
to consider terms of pence, and rather
to surrender than to ruin the country
and starve the people. I was with
you afterwards for a month, convincing me that it was better to lay down
our arms. 1 did my duty at the battle at Chietmu with l'rinsloo, and
charged the guns when I was shamefully left in the lurch by Froneman
who fled. Convinced that the struggle was hopeless I left my Btaff and
surrendered and was sent to Durban.
You and Steyu in carrying on guerrilla warfare caused me to write to
Kitchener on November IX, requesting
an opportunity to come to the state and
persuade the men to lay down their
arms. There is no Free State government against whom I could commit
treason. Whicli Is better for the republics, to continue to struggle at the
risk of total ruination ns a nation, or
to submit?
Could wo thi*i]t of taking back the
country if it were offered us, with
thousands of people to be supported
by a government that has not a farthing but a debt of live or six millions,
even If helped by you? Do you think
any nation so mad us to have thou
sands killed and spend millions and
then give us the republics and the necessary capital to govern them?
Put passonlate feeling asirte for a
moment and use common sense, and
you will then agree that the best
thing for the people and country is to
give in, be loyal to the new government and try to get lesponsible government and as soon as the finances
will allow of us doing so, govern the
country virtually ourselves, bave our
children properly educated and save
the people as a nation, should the
war continue a lew months longer
tbe nation will become so poor that it
will become a working class and disappear as a nation. I have heard that
yon and others aconsu me of being
paid by the English government for
what I am doing. I can only answer
that there is a Uod and He will pass
ifgHteous sentence. 1 have also beard
that Kitchener's offers to me und other attempts ure considered by you as
signs of weakness on the part of the
When you cornered fifty soldiers ut
llliiawn bank, did the same to four
hundred at Norstorshuok and surrounded a small patrol at Khenoster
river, under a Hug of truce und asked
them to surrender, wub it weakness
or magnanimity on yoiu- part?
The British ure convinced that tbey
have conqueied the land and the people, and they consldei the matter ended, and are only trying to treat those
continuing the struggle magnanimously In order to prevent unnecessary
bloodshed. Believe me when I tell
you that no troops are sent to England, but thousands ure still coming
to South Africa. If you do not consider the Free State von will be insensible and not sensible burghers.
Are you blind? Can you nut see
that you are being deceived by the
Transvaal generals? What ure they
doing? They do not fight one tenth
part as much us we do. The Transvaal is not as much ruined as the Free
State. They arc Inclined to submit,
and are only waiting to see what
you are going to do. Thu moment
yon surrender, fall or are captured,
they will surrender. I pray you
again to consider, before you proceed

The Valhalla Was Sent Down

The good ship Valhalla was launched successfully at   the  0. P. K.   ship-
i yards yesterday afternoon in the pres
! euce     of   250   spectators.    The   event
came oft without a hitch and the spectacle   proved   decidedly     interesting.
The Valhalla   now   floats   in   her natural element and within   a   comparatively short time will  take   her   place
at the head of the   C.    P.    R.    towing
fleet,    a   position she promises to   fill
i with profit to the company and credit
to her designers and builders.
|    The launching was   announced for 2
'o'cluck   and   came   off   within a   few
minutes of   the   scheduled Hour.    Tbe
time-honored     custom of  breaking   a
i bottle of wine over her prow was   ob-
I served nnd a salvo of cheers   followed
the boat as she moved   gracefully into
I the water.    Quite 250  people gathered
' at the shipyards   before   2 o'clock and
I tbe   majority of   tbem   inspected   the
I craft as she stood   on the ways in   all
' the   glory   of   fresh   paint and   clean
1 woodwork.    The     Valhalla   certainly
' made a   Striking   picture.    From   tbe
1 top of her funnel to   the   ground   wus
i fully 30 feet and the lines of  her hull
I stood   out   strongly,    elevated as   the
I boat   was   from     the    ground.   The
I hull was a blaze   of   red   to  a   point
within a couple   of   feet   of  the   rail
above which the exterior was finished
in white. Flags floated from stem and
stern, the   ensemble   eliciting   hearty
admiration from those present. Shortly before 2 o'clock the steamer   Koka-
nee came down from   the   city   wharf
with   Commodore   and   Mrs. Gore and
a  party of   friends.    At 1140 foreman
Bulger     marshalled     his    men   with
sledges alongside   the   boat  and at  a
signal the crew   started to   drive   the
weilges   which   shifted the   weight of
the craft to tbe cradle resting  on   the
ways.    The   next   step  was to   knock
away the blocks and releuse  the boat.
Everything worked  smoothly   and   at
2:13   o'clock   the   last    support came
"She's off," was the cry from the
crowd aboard tho boat us the first
tremor became perceptible and the
cry wus taken up by those ashore.
Slowly the great hull started lake-
wurds on the thoroughly greased
ways. The Kokaiiee released her
deep-toned whistle and a freight locomotive passing answored with u shrill
ear-splitting whistle. Tho crowd
cheered lustily us tho Valhalla slid
into the lake raising an enormous
wave. The stern sunk deep into the
water nnd then enmc up as tlu prow
came ofl' the ways. The cradle which
had cairled the craft down tbo ways
became detached and was quickly
broken up In the swirling water.
When the boat entered she waslnelln
Ing to one side, but quickly righted
herself and floated ont to the center of
the channel, moving downstream with
the current. Mrs. Commodore Gore
hud the distinction of christening the
tug. As the vessel flouted In the water she broke a quart bottle of Pom-
mcry ovei the prow and announced
"I name thee Valhalla," whoreat tho
crowd cheered again. The boat ran
out a hundred yards or so snapping a
two-Inch hawser as though it had
been a thread. Then the Kokanee
put out after her and brought the
Valhalla into the ship yards, landing
where Bhe will be tied for a few days
while receiving finishing touches.
The Valhalla requires paint und
varnish in places after which she will
be ready to go Into commission. A
weeb'8 work will equip her for service, If lieccsBiu-y, although It Is likely that she will not be used at so
curly a date.

view   of
Feb. 9.���A comprehensive
the international situation
reveals only improved prospects
continued peace and harmony. From
the British standpoint, Queen Victoria's death appears to have
strengthened, rather than weakened
Great Britain's position among the
nations. A sufficient time has elapsed since Victoria ceased to reign for
the foreign olliee to feel the political
pulse of the capitals of Europe, and
the briefest examination, commenced
in no spirit of cocksureness, resulted
in a feeling of aafe security at Downing street.
The foremost factor in this, naturally, iB Emperor William's attitude.
Responsible officials here make no attempt to conceal their elation at the
circumstances attendant on His Majesty's visit. They do not shut their
eyes to the dissatisfaction the emperor
has caused among certain sections of
his own subjects, but rely implicitly
on the imperious force of Germany's
ruler to successfully overcome the internal objections engendered. Closer
relations undoubtedly now exist between Great Britain and Germany.
Lord Salisbury and Lord Lansdowne
ure quite prepared to bear Count von
Kuelow (the Imperial chancellor)
satrically belittle tbe effect of Emperor William's visii, but in Downing
street this will be taken as meant
puiely for home jonsuuiptlou, and as
merely more evidence of the siklful
band of the emperor.
The alliance between Great Britain
and Portugal scarcely needed the visit
of King Charles to render it stronger.
Vet the continued stay here of that
ruler is believed to be likely to bring
the peoples of Portugal and Great
Britain in closer touch thus rendering
easier the work of their lespective
governments. So far as the diplomatic phase goes, the Associated
Press is officially informed that nothing new has resulted from the King
of Portugal's stay in England. The
mutual responsibilities in connection
with Delagoa Bay were too well understood previously to need further
discussion. Thus Portugal, England
and Germany are believed to be more
closely united than ever in their history, united by a compact, that In the
opinion of leading British statesmen,
is stronger even than the Dreibund,
which is yearly becoming more of a
tradition than a working agreement.
The only feature of the recent inter-
notional happenings regretted at
Downing street, Is the emperor's dee-
oration of Field Marshal Lord Robot ts
with the Order of the Black Bogle,
It Is thought Ills Majesty went almost
too far in view of the hostile comments the German press is In the habit of showering on Great Britain's
Soulii African generals. "Still,' say
the officials, "Emperor William nevei
doos things by halves."
Neither in China, nor in other parts
of tho world do Russia and France,
In the foreign office's view, give any
Indication of counter action ugulnsl
this activity of British diplomacy.
Lord Salisbury Is said to rely on Emperor William to keep In touch and
harmony with the czar.
So long as this is feasible France
is not expected to take any serious
initiative. Moreover, according to
dispatches In the British press French
Anglophoblsm seems to have abated
since the Queen's death. Austria und
Italy ure put down us suro to do nothing contrury to Emperor William's
wish. It is easily seen thnt Emperor
William Ib now the dominating figure
In European affairs. To this Great
Britain has no objection. She hns
made it possible and trusts to benefit
by It. Relationship between the reigning families of Europe Is not held to
be of much account in the chuneeiler-
ieB, but bo far as it goes, It Is believed
King Edward VII'b personality will
tend to Improve Its degree of potency.
More Important to some cabinet
ministers tbun the European situation, Is tho belief that u solution of
the Nicaragua", cunnl dispute enn be
arrived ut without the slightest friction. With the exception of China,
this   wus   the   only   serious   cloud on
Great  Britain's diplomatic   horizon
previous to the Queen's death. Now
It Is hoped It will disappear. The
exclusive announcement hy the Associated Press yesterday that Great Uilt-
aln Ib about to make a counter proposition to the United States on the bus-
Is of the United States amendments to
the Hay-Paunoefote treaty wbich are
likely to necessitate extended negotia
lions, not a word of which Is known
in England, may ho safely described
us a pound of Salisbury and an ounce
of Lansdowne. The ugeil premier's
foreign policy has been somewhnt
justly defined as a mixture of mica
witb bearlsm nnd fatalism. Lord
Lansdowne Is said to bave taken up a' yon,
rather aggressive standpoint, insisting on the observance of the ethics ol
treaties, but the Sume spirit of compromise which it is hoped will be
shown by the United States prevailed
within the British cabinet, Lord Salisbury ae usual gaining his point. .
Whether the cabinet iB unduly optimistic in thinking the United States
will consider or agree to the counter
propositions, time alone will show.
As a foreign office official said,
"Nothing is ever settled by one despatch." ,
Simultanously with the accession of
King Edward (whom incidentally
golfers refer to as the first sovereign
who has played golf since .fames II.)
the waters of the Nile hove been turned buck. Sir John Aird cabled this
week, "The last channel has been
closed at Assuan. You can now walk
across the Nile." This will solve the
problem of supplying corn in Efypt.
The excellent piece of dam construction will have to withstand a severe
strain when the Nile rises with the
next floods.
Another American was accorded

in England, when Mr. Edwin A. Ab
bey wus elected a member of the
Athenaeum club, ufider the provisions
of the rule empowering the annual
election of persons of distinguished
eminence in science, literature and
the arts.
In the above connection, it is interesting to note that two celebrated Van
Dyck portraits sold at the Peel auction
in 1000 for 24,250 guineas have been
boneht by the Berlin museum from a
London dealer,thus being lost to England and causing the London Times
to bewail the depleted state of the exchequer which prevented the National
gallery from acquiring them.

King Edward's bestowal of the Victoria order on enlisted men of the
navy for services in connection with
the funeral of Queen Victoria has
caused somewhat of a shock to the
officers of both the army and navy and
a corresponding enthusiasm among
the rank and file. It. is quite without precedent and h'r.s done more to
popularize King Edward with his
sailors than could any other act. Th
officers ure beginning to see the King's
motive in according the Bailors an ex
ceptional honor.
Some of the army officers are bitter
ly complaining of an innovation since
Lord Roberts took command of the
forces by which they are obliged to
wear uniform whenever thev go to the
wur office. Whatever his purpose,
Lord Roberts in this woy and many
others, Is trying to down the prejudice of the majority of officers against

officers' uniforms nre likely to be as
common in London streetsos privates'

Berlin, Feb. 0.���The Anglo-Germon
relations and their surmised modifications, owing to Emperor William's
visit to England, form just now the
ull engrossing topic. Since Ills Majesty's return all Germany hns been
engaged in the discussion. The dee-
orating of Lord Roberts with tho Order of the Black Eugle and Emperor
Willium's reply to King Edward's
speech, in which the Emperor said
he wus h iiioreil in wearing a British
uniform and that tho emperor's army
would likewise feel it an honor, have
especially aroused keen criticism,
which is prlvutely expressed muoh
mine freely than in print.
The Krauze Zcltung's comment yesterday afternoon is today making the
rounds of the German press. Many
Conservative nnd ugrurlan papers
merely reproduce It without comment.
The KreU28 Zeltung said:
'We fall to see why this Boer destroyer (Roberts) should receive such
a unique murk of Emperor William's
distinction, and also why the emperor, after being horribly Insulted several ,veins ugo by the officers of his
lliltlsh regiment should now show
them marked uttertlon."
The bitterly unglophobc Deutsche
Tuges /.eltung (In spite of the fact
thut the agrarians, now less than
ever, wish the emperor to feel wroth
with them, when tbey aro preparing
In defeut the canal bill a second time
nnd simultaneously demand prohibitive cerenl duties foi their benefit)
says   it enniiot  doubt   the   Emperor's
behavior  In   England is based on the
Idea of closer Anglo-German friendship, which is Intensely unpopular
with the vast majority of the nation.
But whatever comment is made is In
cautious terms. Tho National Zeltung
(National Liberal) calls the Krcuze
Zeltung's article an untaxing utterance, and claims to doubt tbe report
of thu decoration of Lord Roberts
with the Order of the Block Eagle.
The Cologne Zeltung, the lending
Centrist organ, weighs tbe chances of
the Russian or British raporoachmont
for Germany,carefully concluding that
the beat policy for Oermuny's interests Is nn entente with Grent Britain
from the Cntholle standpoint particularly, und nlso that an understanding
with Great Britain means tho furtherance of more liberal political Institutions.

The Yellowstone mill, has now been

75 per cent.

The repots to hand from the Yellow
Jacket mine on Champion creek are
of a satisfactory nature. Tbe sawmill
at the mine is turning out lumber
rapidly for tbe mill and other buildings. The stamp mill is on the
ground and Ib being set up as quickly
as possible although the task will entail upwards of six weeks' more work.
Development Is being carried on vig
oroualy and the property continues to
improve as the workings are extended. Thomas James, manager of the
Onondaga Mining tit Milling com
pany, has returned from a trip to
Syracuse, N. Y., where he was called
in consultation with the directors.
By the time the stamp mill is operating the Yellow Jacket will represent

the property merits the confidence

The services to be held here today
by Rev. J. G. Shearer, field secretary
of the Lord's Day Alliance, promise
to be most interesting. There seems
to he a misapprehension of Mr. Shearer's mission, which he will remove
from the minds of his hearers in the
course of his visit to Nelson. The
Lord's Day Alliance does not exist tor
the purpose of compelling people to
observe Sunday by religious exercise
nor does the organization endeavor to
nictate In the slightest degree what
the individual should do with his
Sundays. On the contrary there is a
strong feeling permeating the alliance
that the hours of rest on the seventh
day belong to the individual to dispose
of as ho may desire, provided always
that the Individual does not interfere
with the masses. The alliance exists
for the purpose of preserving the Sabbath as a day of rest inviolate, leaving to the churches the tank of influencing the public iu the matter ot
religious observance, Discussing this
point Mr. Shearer says: "I personally hold very strong views as to the
proper observance of the Sabbath,
but if an attempt was made to dictate to the individual as to his course
of action, 1 should he among the first
to take the plntform In oppoBition."
Il'iving disubused the public mind
uf uny misconception on tills point, it
will lie of considerable interest to note
whut the alliance hus accomplished
in the direction of preserving Sunday
a duy of rest. In Ontario where
the alliance has 130 branches anil a
membership running into the thou
sands an aggressive programme has
been followed where attempts have
been mnde to infringe on the Sunday
obsrvniice. An Instance of this is the
euse of the Calcium Carbide works at
Mcrrlton. Ont,, This industrial enterprise could not fill Its orders in the
ordinary working hours and Instructed 25 of its employes to report ft r duty
on Sunday. The workmen nppenled to

company courteously urging him to
abandon the Idea. The euiiimuulen-

alliance took further action. The

In chambers yesterday morning a
nico point of law was decided by Mr.

���nude by W. A. Macuimald in the
matter of Cameron vs LawsoD to set
aside an order mnde by Judge Forin
as locsl judge giving leave lo issue a
writ for service on defendant out of
the jurisdiction on the ground that
nnder rule 1075 of the supreme court
rules Judge Fori ii only had jurisdiction In actions brought in this county. Mr. Justice living dismissed the
summons following u judgment uf
Mr. Justice Martin who held that
reading the rule und the net of Interpretation of the statute together with
the word "action" must be given a
wide meaning uud would include preparatory proceedings. Tbe point Involved is of very considerable Import

plication was made by VV, A. Macdonald, P. B, Wilson contra.

the principle ut stake has been to prevent any employers of labor from compelling men to work on Sunday save
where the enterprises are those of necessity or mercy. Furthermore a liberal Interpretation is taken of the exceptions.

The protests which hnve been uttered by a certain portion of the press of
the province  against   schemes   which
are said to be   hutching   calculated to
rob British Columbia   of the   fruits of
her industrial development   u.id benefit   United   States   corporations,   are
timely   and   will   meet with   general
approval.    Every patriotic   citiz.en   of
this country will not deny thut as far
as possible we should adopt the   principle   of   "Canada   for   Canadians"���
that is, shut Canadians should reap to
the   fullest possible extent the advantages  which  are  legitimately   theirs
from the   exploitation  of the rich resources of Canada.    No one will   deny
the justice   of   that  contention.    The
people of Eastern   Canada have awakened to a realization   of   the fact that
in the past they   have   suffered to   an
incalculable   extent   through viewing
with apathy the operations of   United
States speculators; and recently legislation has been enacted looking to the
better   protection   of Canadian   interests.    Signs are not   wanting that the
people  of     British     Columbia     will
shortly be called upon to   give serious
consideration to this question of   taking steps to prevent the encroachment
upon their interests by designing United States   speculators, who, under the
plea of developing the country, aim at
milking it   of   its   rich raw   products
fot their own benefit.    British Columbians will stand   shoulder to shoulder
on one common ground in the event of
such an assault   being made.    The air
is full of rumors  of the approach of a
railway war of great  magnitude.   On
tbe one   side   stands   J. J. Hill,   and
against him is the C. P. R.   The merits of the vatious contentions put forward by the great rivals will no doubt
be fully explained -, but  observing the
conflict from afar, as it is in its present phase, the sympathy of the people
of tho west   will   undoubtedly be   extended to the gieat Canadian   institution.    That opinion   may be   changed
later   on when all the arguments  are
presented and a verdict   awaited,   but
the feeling in the west at present is as
we   have   indieuted.    The C. P. R.   is
a   much-criticized    corporation,   and
perhaps    some   of   the  adverse  comment   is  justified -,   hut   it.   hns done
so    much     for    Cnnuda,   it    is    so
great     a     purely     Canadian     insti
tution, and one conducted   with   such
marked   ability   that   British Columbians will oe loth to turn from It and
extend the hand to rivals wbo are not
in any way   identified   with our   national   growth.    That   Canadians    in
the west have only too easily been de
luded by   the   promises   held   out   to
them by their  shrewd Yankee cousins
is   manifest   if   one   will   look at the
citieB   of   Spokane uud   Seattle which
huve  thrived  by the  exploitation  of
Canadian territory.
