Some opinions arising onr of a supposed muddle into winch the by-laws
of tbe City hnve got themselves were
expressed in yesterday's Miner In a
department that is nol charged with
the expression oi opinions We do not
Know bow grave tho situation may la.
The (.'itv may or may not he without
by-laws; bnt at the worst we do not
think there is the -lightest occasion for
excitement The instances nre numerous when muuiepalities hnve discovered that, by oversight or accident i t
���mine other cause, by-laws that were
���opposed to be and intended to be in
full force and effeot had ceased to I"'
operative. Tbere wa- a simple remedy,
although not always as readily avail-
ble as in the present case. 1'hey went
to the Legislatures to oiiiitirin the bylaws and to legalise any thing done,
act performed, or proceedings taken in
pursuance of them. That rem -ly is
available to us. and at once,'for the
Legislature is in session. If the doubts
are grave enough fo demand sucb action, let b Bill be drafted to make
good lhe by-laws that are supposed to
b" iu force, and on the pleii of urgency
the House will speedily transform it
into an Act In the mantime harm
will not come to any of ns unless we
go out to seek it.
Tbe statement is mnde llint the Mayor is the flr��t to advise thai the appeal
in the Traves ease, which appears to
be tbe origin of all the trouble, should
be dropped. This is not correct, as the
same advice was tendered in this col-
ntnn of The Miner several weeks ago.
The opinion it had then it has now.
and in this instance it can approve the
view taken by th" Mayor as being the
most sensible under the circumstance.-.
pl iud tie idea aud urge that it be car-
led out. Something less ambitions
ban tins will do. Let Rossland send
over in two or three oi half dozen
troopers a- its contribution to the forty
to he recmited in Nelson, and it will
be let oil without another word.

Just arrived from Milwaukee.
There was ninch criticism of Boiler's
message that Wnrreu intended to make
a night attack on Spion Kop, the War
Department heing blamed for giving it
ont. The Department, indeed, seems
to have regnrded the indiscretion ns
serions enough to warrant an apology,
ior it took pnin�� to explain that the
reference to the night attack was not
intended for publication nnd was sent
to the newspapers through clerical
carelessness. An eminent military
authority 111 Loudon does not understand why these precautions should be
thought to be necessary, as the ceusot
could easily prevent intelligence of
that kind getting hack to the Boers.
In tbat case one wonders why more
news of operations and movements in
Natal and Oape Colony is not published. If there is nothing in the tear that
the Boers may profit by it, it is needlessly tantalising to withhold it from
the Biitish public.

It is quite |ios��ible that Buller and
Warren and the rest nf them know
more of what they are doin^ and can
do, more of the 0).|iortiiiiities and necessities of the situation, than the
average newspaper strategist in Canada. This remark is suggested bv yesterday's news. Two days ago we eon-
eluded that the case of Ladysmith was
hopeless. Today Ladysmith say* she
is in good spirits and can hang out;
and from several different sources, but
especially from Holler himself, comes
the expression oi a belief that within a
wink his army will raise the siege.
This will suggest to the newspaper
strategists that a little more modesty
would not be unbecoming, and foi itself The Miner veiy frankly accepts
the rebuke.

Tho Miner had it sent especially to

James Sullivan and Thomas Gannon
have been languishing in jail for some
days charged with the burglary of Dr.
Lallan's house. The police had a
fairly strong case against Gannon,
but tioihitig but cirounistantinl evidence against Sullivan. The chief had
been watching Sullivan closely, and,
as 11 result of what he noticed, yesterday ho stupped him. and found a bullet wound between bis shoulders. The
men saw the game was np and confessed every thing. Dr. Lallan inspected
(he wi niuii. and is of opinion that the
bullet is in the mini's lungs and will
be a hard matter to get out. Tho man
does not appear to bn in any pain.
Mr. B. W. Musson, superintendent,

addition it may be stated that Mr.
Mussou made a brief verbal report of
this month's operations yesterday to
the director-, in which he informed
them that liming the past 80 pays tlie
work had been confined to development, no stuping being done. A drift
iu now being run on the vein east and
west at the 110 foot level, and Mr.
Mussou says that the ore there, espoci
ally in the east drift, is the best hitherto encountered in the mine. The
management has also shipped 1.000
pound) of ore to Mr. Pellew-Hnrvey, of
Vancouver, for a test as to its adaptability by cyanide or chlorination.
Mrs. Brougham is meeting with
great goooess in San Francisco, where
she is singing under hor old stage
Dame o[ Miss Frances Graham. The
Chronicle, iu reporting a performance,
says: "There is much to commend
in the staging of tho piece, and its
costuming as   well, nnd,   dually, there
is one feature of the performance that
has a value of its own and is worth all
tho rest of tho show put together. 1
This is the singing of Miss Frances
Graham, a contralto of unusual gifts,
who makes her tirst appeaiHiice in
tbii production. She has a truly fine
voice, limited in power, 'nit of a pure
and rich quality, she has temperament and style, sweetness and good
method, and is a great acquisition to
tho Tivoli forces 1 look forward
with pleasure to hearing her in something tbal gives her greater opportunity, though should it not be forthcoming, it is to be hoped hIio may bo permitted to introduce something thai
will exhibit her truly remaiknble
powers. "
