YULE TIDE IN
OLD ENGLAND
Last Christmas of the Century
Goes Out as the First
Game In.
Butlers Will Dance With Duchesses and  Cooks With
Cabinet Ministers.
London, Dee. 22.���There -ill be a
merry Christmas in England, though
in consequence, London is already
one of the dullest spots in the United
Kingdom. The fashionable, world 1ms
in-contcntedly deserted the metropolis aud sought refuge in the country
places. There will bo sueh a round of
house parties as has been unknown
lor several years. They will be ac-
Jconipiiuicil by the revival of tbe queer
���old customs, whieh, a century ago
��� made the season the occasion for un-
���restrained merry making among rich
and poor alike. At Osborne the
Queen will be surrounded by the
Duke and Duchess of York, the l'rincess of Battenburg and several of ber
grand children. At S u_driughara
the l'rinee of Wales will entertain tho
Duke aud Duchess of Fife and their
children with royal Christmas trees.
Walbeck Abbey, Blenheim Palace,
Uatlleld House and all the stately
houses of English nrtisucrney ure filled up with soores of guests, prepared
|to mako tho most of Yulotide. Hulls,
Smuttier theatricals aud entertnin-
uents have been arranged, conspicous
aieeein,- which is the old   English   eus-
Dm of a dance In the servant, hall.
It thu .'ml,.' and Duchess of Devon-
Ihires, Earl and Countess Spencers.
the Marquis and Marchioness of Londonderry and other places of the no-
bill ity,. Christmas eve will be marked by the strange spectacle of butlers
dancing with duchesses, footmen
wilh countesses and grooms with the
daughters of belted earls, while ladies
maids, chambermaids and cooks will
hang onto the arms of Cabinet Ministers and other male heads of illustrious lines. The ancient practice of the
lanil owners enjoying the servants'
quadrille had almost lapsed, except
in the cases of a few families. The
revival is, perhaps, not a little due to
ihe increasing necessity for pamper-
BR the Hritish servant. The Onlooker
ays tho householders now have to
tuily the comfort of their domestics
ib much as their own, and quotes one
lountry house, where u set of rooms
s specially allotted to them for recre-
ition, comprising a bull room, inubic
oom, library and billiard room
n which a marker is kept for tbe servants' nolo use.
(ince again Mrs. Florence Maybrick
���pends an   unhappy Christmas   In her
brlson coll.    In   spite   of   the various
[reports, her chances  of liberty are no
|brighter  than    laBt yenr.    Secretary
THay has forwarded to Mr. Choato several private letters which will shortly
be presented   to tho new Home   Secretary, Mr. Ritchie, In accordance with
Ihe custom of  approaching   eaeh new
occupant of that oftlcc.    But   tho   As-
lociated Press learns there is no possible chance of anything boing   done so
[long us Lord Salisbury is   Lord Chancellor.    Were the   Cabinet  to  discuss
the matter, as it did   once   bofore,   it
:ould only   refer   it  to   the   Crown's
ihief advisor, Lord Salisbury who np-
jarcntiy made the Maybrick case   the
basis   of  a feud   with   the late   Lord
Chief, Justice, , Baron   Russell of Kil-
lowen, and cherishes it just as bitterly now as before Lord Russell's death.
When a now   Chancellor   is appointed
Mrs.    Maybrick     will   have   a   good
chance  of  freedom.    Tho Duchess  of
Bedford, who Ib roported to be especially interested In Mrs.  Maybrick,tells
tbe  Associated   Press   that   she  only
sees  tho  oolebrated  prisoner   in   the
course of  her regular visits to Ayles
hury   prUon, but specially   in the Interest of her case, and does not intend
to express any opinion  of her guilt or
I Innocence.
W. H. Heebies, head of the recently
formed Canadian furnituro combine,
How iu London, has decided thut the
Canadians have no need of the assistance or co-oporatlon of English fin-
auciers, which was originally projected. A significant fact, showing Canada's progress, Is that sulllclent
funds are easily obtainable there,

humiliations which iv
they   may  ut   last   be   induced to resent."
The worst The Spectator says is
the following: "Apparently the object of the United States Senate has
not been to attain a particular object
so much as to insult n friendly power
and to make it tl illicit! t for that power
to negotiate in a conciliatory spirit." The Speaker will go into the
('anal quecstion historically, citing
Nicaragua's treaties with Spain in
18(i(), neutralizing the projected canal,
pointing out that theso are all in
force now except the treaty with England.

FORWARDING THE TREATY.
Washington, 1). C, Dee. 22.���The
Hay-Pauncefote canal treaty, with the
Senate amendments, was received nt
the State Department shortly after
noon today. The Department will forward the amendments in the usual
course to the Hritish Government and
they will be on their way to London
by tbe steamer which leaves New
York next. Tuesday. Tbe action is
rather more rapid than is usual iu
treaty making. Once it is taken there
will be nothing more for the State Department to do until the Hritish Government shnil have passed upon the
amendments, provided an unconscionable period of toe time shall not be
occupied.
HOERS ON THE RUN.
London, Dee. 22.���A despatch from
De Aar, Cape Colony, says that the
Yeomanry havo driven the Boers oiit

December   IS,
London, Dec. 22.���Tbe Evening
Standard says it bears a report that
reached London that Kimborluy is seriously threatened bv the Hoers. None
of the South African firms interested
in Kimberley has received information to confirm the Evening Standard's report.
LOTS OF LA GRIPPE.
St. Petersburg, Dec. 22.���The in-
uenza epidemic is so severe that the
mortality returns for the Inst week
have been tbe highest for a decade.
Tbe disease has swept the city and
every otlice hns vacant desks and every
private table has a vacant '.chair.
A meeting of physicians was summoned to discuss remedies but scarcely
half a dozen responded to the call,
the rest being overworekd or themselves ^victims of the malady. The
weather is conducive to tho spread of
tbo disorder.
MAJORITY REDUCED.
London, Dec. 22.���Mr. Worsley
Taylor, Conservative, bus been elected
to represent the Blackpool division
of Lancashire in tho House of Commons iu succession  to   Mnthew White
Ridley, who,according to Parliamentary usage, recently relinquished bis
seat in Lower House on being elevated to tbe peerage with the title of
Viscouut Ridley. In this election the
Conservative majority was cut in half.
In the general election Sir Matthew
was unopposed.
ITS   VIEW.
St. Petersburg, Dec. 22.���ThoNo-
vosti, discussing the Nicuraguun canal,says: "England is evidently incapable of opposing the United States,
the fact being that America is rising
proportionately as England is losing
prestige."
MARINE   DISASTER.
Baltimore, Md., Dee. '22.��� The
American schooner Jennie Hall, Capt.
Lawson from Trinidad, Nov. 10 for

At 7:.'I2 this morning, or thoro-
abouts, those who weie on tbo streets
of Nelson or w. oso windows commanded a southern view, saw away
up past -vhoro tbe Hall Mines train-
way takes a dip and disappears, a
mountain top sparkling in the sun nfl
a diamond cluster sparkles in tho hair
of a fair woman. Later mountain
tops to tho west' began to wink and
blink and sparkle and all naturo
seemed to havo awakened to the fact
that Christmas time wns coming and
that In the Kootenays at least it wns
to be a time of joy fulness. Then aa
the morning grew mountains nearer
home adorned themselves with bright'
est jewels from nature's crown and
sent back glad tiitings to the more
distant snow capped peaks. As the
sun climbed higher in tbe heavens the
ripples of Kootenay Lake bedecked
tbomselves and winked to the rnoun
tiiin tops, thu rays crept in through
windows and called to those still
sleeping that lightness had dawned
again, the business men and shopping
women put away their rain coals,
tbe dogs found sunny spots, stretched
themselves and slept in perfect biiss
nnd everywhere was gladness. It
j was the first sunHhiue In Nelson in six
J weeks and it was welcome.
Another Delay In the Signing
of the  Ghlnese
Note.
This Time the U. S. Minister
Is the   One Withholding.
Pekin, Dec 22.���Once more there is
a hitch in the proceedings. The preliminary joint note haB not yet been
signed. Mr. Conger, the United States
Minister, says he does not believe that
there are sutllcient reasons why it
should not be signed iu tbe near future aud Sir Ernest Satow, the Hritish Minister, takes the same view.
Dr. Von Schwarteustein, speaking for
(lermuny, believes thut the existing
agreement will bo signed sooner or
later. The other ministers also say
that th_y consider the probabilities
in favor of signing. Chinese sources
of Information, however, sav there
is reliable authority for the statement
that there is very little chance of
the note being signed   for some timo.
As a matter of fact the member of
the staff of Li Hung Chang believe
that the note will eventually h_ve to
be drawn up either in Europe or
America, probably the latter, because
they claim that the Washington Government has had most to do with the
existing modification of the various
fdruus of harshness. The United States
are looked upou by the Chinese Empire. Tbe other powers ure regarded
ns desirous of breaking it up with
the possible exception of Russia, who
the Chinese think merely favors a
postponement in order eventually to
secure a linger share.
(irave fears arc felt regarding the
health of Li Hung owing to the se
vere cold that he caught tho day he
visited lieneral Chaffee. It is said
that ho is bettor today but thero iB a
fear of pleurisy which at his age
might be fatal. It is generally believed that the Chinese got their information as to what is done at the
meetings of the envoys from son. one
connected with the   Russian legation.
London,    Dec.    22. It is  learned
hero that tbe agreement signed by
ministers of the 1'owerB at l'ekin,
naming conditions as a preliminary
to the negotiations of peace terms,
provisions aro made for the severest
penalties that Chinamen impose in
the punishment on the higher oflicials
believed to be responsible for the Boxer outrages. This refcrB particularly
to the eleven prominent Chinese nobles whose names have been mentioned in the press despatches as those
whom somo of tbe nations contended
should he executed.
Our Government has persistently
held to the position that penalties
should not bo inflicted on tho Chinese
(lovernment which she wns unable to
carry out. Tbe demand tor the death
penalty was strickej out of the agreement, and that for the severest penalties possible inserted. The agreement
probably will bo mnde public here tomorrow, if word reaches Washington
that Mr. Conger has affixed his signature to it.
London, Dec. 22.���It now appears
that tbe Hritish Foreign Office has
not rocolved direct notification from
Pekin that the joint note has been
signed, but, In view of fact that it
had received assurances from the Ambassadors in London to the effect that
all tbe ministers bail signed, the
Foreign Otlice accepted as correct the
alleged semi-ofllcial de'sputchos from
Berlin nnd I'aris announcing the signature. The Foreign Olliee still declares It has ovory reason to believe
the signing is nn accomplished fnct
and that the telegrams to the contrary are   possibly   anterior   thereto.
Berlin, Doc. 22.���A despatch from
Tien Tsin to the Frankfurter -letting, dated toduy Bays: l'rinee
Chlng's interpreter asserts that Emperor Wang Su, unaccompanied by
the Empress Dowager, left Sian Fu,
Deeeinbor 111 bound for l'ekin.
London, Deo. 22.���"The delay In
signing tbo preliminary joint note."
says the l'ekin correspondent of The
Morning Post, wiring yesterday, "Is
due to an objection from Washington.
Mr. Conger, however, has telegraphed his (lovernment urging a speedy
settlement on the ground that foreign
military control Is worse than Chin
ese management. Prince Ching says
that Emperor Kwang Su and the Empress Dowager nre both anxious to
leave Sinn Fu, as the accommodation
there is poor, lie points out thnt tbe
private, and government property
selzod in l'ekin is quite equivalent In
value to tho indemnity demanded by
tbo powers. Sir Robert Hart saw
Prince Ching. yesterday and advised
Mm against dallying with the powers
In regard to the punishment of the
guilty oflicials. Prince Ching thought
j tlie execution of two or three possible
and   the   life   long  imprisonment  of
l'rinee Tuan quite certain."
London, Deo. 22.���Dr. Morrison, In
a long despatch to The Times from
l'okin, dated December 20, gives an
extract from the joint note. After a
long preamble recounting and condemning tbe outrages he proceeds to
quote the demands which ure vlrtuul-
ly identical with the ten set forth in
the despatch to tho Associated l'ress
from Tien Tsin, dated December 14
but not as iu the case of that despatch, setting forth the amount of
the indemnity. According to Dr. Morrison's information the clause referring to indemnity reads as follows:
"Equitable indemnity is to be paid to
states, societies and individuals and
also to Chinese who have suffered injury on account of their employment
by foreigners. China will adopt financial measures acceptable to tlie
powers to guarantee the payment of
indemnity and tbe service   loans."
According to Tbe Times correspondent the note contains the following
stipulations in addition to these cabled to the Associated Press froni/Tien
Tsin. "Reparation to Japan for the
murder of Kugiyamu. Expiatory monuments erected in all forergn .cetne-
tries where tombs have been desecrated. The posting of a proclamation
throughout the Empire for two years
enumerating tbe punishments inflicted upon the guilty oflicials nnd threatening death to any joining an anti-
foreign society. An imperial edict to
be issued holding viceroys and governors responsible for anti-foreign outbreaks or violations of the treaties
China to undertake negotiations for
a revision of the commecrial
treaties."
Dr. Morrison goes on to say that In
the discussion of tho translation of
the word "comply" in the British
proposal not to remove the troopB
until the demands should bo satisfied. One Minister suggested, "Acceptor." the Gorman minister wanted
"Rerapli." Finally it was agreed to
use the expression,"Ze. eonfonner A.'.'

An Item has been going tbe rounds
of the l'nited States press to the
effect thut Lord Salisbury has never
so much as spoken to Mr. John Mor-
ley, who was one of Mr. Gladstone's
ministers, and is almost the host literary man iu England; also that Lord
.Salisbury never saw Mr. Parnell.
This was supposed to be a joke, but
the fol'.owiug, from The Ixindon Daily
Express, seems to boar out the state-
lneut as serioiis: "It is repoitedin
Downing Street thnt Lord Salisbury
lias In those reconstruction arrangements mnde the acquaintance uf s_v
eral ol his ministers. 'Who is that
pleasant-looking man who bowed to
you'." he Is said to have asked his nephew one day when they were out
walking. 'That,' replied'his nephew,
suavely, 'Is n member of your Cabinet, air. Walter Long, the Minister of
Agriculture.' The Murquis of Kolia-
hury, adds the Sussex Daily News, as
such has never seen tbe House of (om-
inoiiii. '.ml ho has been Murquis now
for thirty-two years,"

The Nelson Miner
CHAMBER OF MINES.
A short time ago Winnipeg sent a
delegation to interview the Government at Toronto, nnd also the Government at Ottawa, in behalf ot the Central Chamber of Mines, established in
that city a few months ago to encourage and promote, the mining interests
of Central Canada. This Is a public
enterprise, and one that is entitled to
public support. It is in a sense a pub
lie bureau ; although conducted inde
pendently of Government control it is
none the less designed to advance the
general development of the country.
The result'of the representations
made to the Toronto Government was
the promise of live thousand dollarB,
to assist the Chamber in advertising
the mineral resources of Western Ontario. The delegates were equally
successful at Ottawa, tbe Federal Ministers interviewed recognising tbe
claim of the Chamber to public aid
and promising to supplement the Ontario grant with five thousand dollars
from the Dominion treasury.
In a few weeks it is hoped to have
a Chamber of Mines Jully organised
sad in operation at Rossland, to do
for Southern British Columbia what
the Winnipeg Chamber is so suecesful
in accomplishing for Western Ontario.
We do not know what assistance is
expected from the Provincial treasury,
but as the service to be performed is
really of a public character it has
every claim to public support. In
carrying out its purpose it is in effect
preforming a public function, with
this advantage when compared with
a bureau under Government responsibility and control, that the service is
special and under the direction of experts who are inspired hy personal interest and whose knowledge of the requirements is of the most complete
and practical character. Such service
is entitled to Government recognition, and when the organisation is
sufficiently advanced there is no
doubt that representations made in
the proper quarter will meet with a
ready response.
Hoard of Trade, and in its twenty-
first annual report, juet issued in the
form of a handsome volume, it makes
absurd failure in the offort to live up
to its name.

THIS YEAR.
Here is a characteristic sentence,
taken from a paragraph in Mr. Hone-
ton's paper of this morning: "For
daring to even suggest thnt the City
of Nelson should be placed in as favorable a position to secure water
rights and power-house Bite as the
West Kootenay Power <_. Light Company, the Mayor of Nelson is called a
fraud and a swindler by a newspaper
that is kept alive by the business
men of Nelson." It is an extraordinary tribute to his powers, but we
are bound to confess that in this Mr.
Houston fairly surpasses himself in
inpudent falsehood. We have referred
to the sale of our present electric
light system to the City AB a swindling one,for the reason that the p-lce
was greatly in excess of its value ai. i
that the sale waB effected while Mr.
Houston was Mayor and at the same
time tha principal shareholder in the
Company. Hut this has nothing to do
with water rights and power-house
sites on the Kootenay, to which reference of any kind was never made in
these columns. So far as the Mayor
has taken steps to secure these for tho
City The Miner stands ready to applaud him, and if the Honnington
Falls people are endeavoring to gobble them all up we will cheerfully
hold up his hand, in his fight
against them,until tbe orack of doom,
if necessary. The attempt to mix up
the two is a clumsy expedient, that
will impose on no one but Mr. Houston's own personal following���and
they, it can be said without exaggeration,   will believe anything.

PHERSON CO , Limited, of Hamilton,

HE RUBENS VEST
Owing to an unhappy oversight yesterday we neglected the pleasing but
not less imperative duty of making
our apologies to Mr. John Houston.
In estimating the value of the electric
light plant which he sold to Mr.Houston, Mayor of the City, he includes
the franchise for public lighting. We
had not known that this waa his to
sell, and in our Ignorance hud confined our attention and remarks to the
plant itself, supposing that the right
to light the City was the City's own.
After this we shall not bo in the
leaBt surprised to learn that the Mayor owns the air we breathe.
If Mr. William T. Stead were an
American ciltzen, and if the United
States were In Oreat Britain's shoes
at tbe present time, Mr. William T.
Stead would either be torn to pieces
by a mob or would speedily find himself under confinement as a traitor to
his oountry. This expresses t_e diff
erence between liberty In Oreat Brit-
Ian aud liberty in the United States.
Although the quality of the former is
preferable, there is no British subject
who would feel regret if the offensive
Mr. Stead were put out of sight. He
irritates.

from those who have properties for

It Is not proposed to recommend

ilie'el lists and all available information connected therewith, and to place

caused. Only one day's mail came

travelling west had to be transported

go thiougb but returned to the City

The following item, taken from the
London Wine Trade Review, will
prove of interest to those who appreciate champagne: "An event of more
than usual interest in the London
market during the past month was
tho withdrawal from the market by
Messrs. Pommciy nf their 1885 champagnes. Messrs. I'ommery announce
as their reason for this action that
they are-satisfied that it was doubtful
whether their lstii's would keep as
long as the English market has been
in the habit of keeping their wines.
Their action will, of course, Involve
an Immense loss, but it shows how
jealously Messrs. I'ommery St Co.,
guard the high reputation of their
wines "

WATCH   YOUR   BOY.
Nine boys out of ten have a greater joy in the
ownership of their first watch than of any single thing"
that comes into their possession. Even the first pair
of top boots or the first pair of suspenders does not
excite quite the same rapture in them. The first
watch inspires certain ambitions toward manly character, in the acknowledgment of responsibility that
goes with it.
The first Watch is a true missionary.
We have a nice range of Boy Watches���watches
that will  keep time, and at comprehensive prices.
If your boy is a good boy he deserves Watch���
ing ; and Christmas is the fitting tin..' to make him
happy. ���  ">
