wiros to the War Offloe, from Bloemfoutoin, nnder date of Tuesday, April
10th, ����follows:
The oiiomy have boen very e.ctivf
during the past few days. One commando is now on the north bank ol
the Orange River, not far from Aliwa;
North, while another is attnnkim
Wepeuer The garrison tbere is hold
inn nut bravely and yesterday lnfliotnc
serious loss on the Boers. Majoi
Springe, of the Oape Mounted Rifles,
waa killed.
No other casualties havo been reported aa yet.
Tbe troopB are being moved rapidly.
A patrol of six men of the Seventh
Dragoon Guards, under Lieutenant
Wetherley, who had been reported
missing since April 7th, has returned
safely,
Aa thn foregoing does not mention
the alleged British reverses on Saturday, at Merrkertsfontein, the Boer telegrams aro discredited at the Wai
oilii'i', and tbey are further discredited on account of tbe discrepancies Ir
the dispatches. Merrkertsfontein ii
one message is located near Braudfort,
aud in another it is located southeast
of Bloemfontein, the places being 10(
milea apart.
General Qatacre's return to Englnnci
ia acoepted aa beiug tu the nature of p.
recall, thongh no reason is given foi
n,.iinl it will be associated in the public mind as resulting from his laok of
���kill. Lord Robert* critioized hii
management of the Stormberg attaok,
and possibly the faot thnt Gatacre
arrived au tour and a half too late to
reaoue the Reddersburg force inny havi
decided bis return. General RundH
seemingly succeeds General Gataore,
and, aooording to a disputch from
Bloemfontein, the commanders of several brigades are abont to  be changed.
The Reuter Telegra.n Company's
correspondent at Aliwal North, wiring
at 9:30 tbis morning, says there is no
further news from Wepener. It is too
elondy to heliogiaph. More British
Hoops am arriving now.
It is learned that the Boer Government bave lormally notified Portugal
that they consider the shipping of
hritish troops and munitions of war to
Kuodssia.by way of Beira, Portuguese
But Africa, to be tantamount to hostile aotion. This, however, will not
"top General Sir Frederick Carring-
ton's foroe from eutering Rhodesia.
Whether or not tbe Boers will make
reprisals upon Portugal remains to be
���eon, though the best Infounod opinion hero iuclines to the belief that the
Boera are not likely to hank up their
protest with action that would bring
them into hostilities with still another
power.
Oolesburg, Oape Colony, April 11.���
In view of the state of uniest across the

nut from a kopje on the'rigbt, when u
Hritish ulii'll alightod on tho spot oocu-
liml by their gun. Another commando
was seen moving toward the British
left, apparently with the intention of
Hanking them. But the British shells
forced them to retire. Tbe British
advance pickets were oontinnally
cuiped, but few oasunlties have been
reported. In the afternoon the Naval
Brigade Hied a fow shells. It is rumored tbat a body of Boers bave gathered southwest of Elandslaaute with
the apparent intention of culling the
British line of communication. General

ifter showing considerable dash, wavered when it oame to the scratch and
itruck at the least vital point, where
hey are greatly bandioapped by tbeir

Owing to the strategical conoentra-

tbe close of the meeting, a statement
was handed out to the effect that
while Great Britain should he given

when prosperity was not so marked.
Before any further prelronce was given that conntry, it was urged tbat
every effort should bo mado to have
the Bnid preference apply only to British manufacturers, it being well
known that manufacturers of foreign

ihair goods fiom British ports, there-

leading features of the programme, tbe
comedietta, "My Uncle's Will."   The

and Messrs  R. M. Maodonald   and 0.
B. Winter.   This is one of the bright-
oat  and   most   sparkling   comediettas

Whnlley,     to     whose     indefatigable
efforts the  success  that tbe entertainment   will   surely meet   is   due, will

neoessity ot gathering stores and supplies. Sir William Gatncre's sudden
removal is the theme of much speculation. The curt manner in which it iH

Viotoria, B.O.April 11.���Yesterday thu Governor dissolved the Legislature. The following dates were fixed
for the different prJliminary events in
the electious to tbu lute House: May
'Jilth for nominations; June oth.for the
general eleotiou ; June :10th, writs to
be returnable, and July 5th for tbe
meeting of the Legislature.
Such were tbe facts as elioited in
conversation with Hie Premier this
morning. He added that tbe date ol
tbe election bad been brought on a few
days earlier than wus originally intended, but that the reason for this
were the representations, made by
friends of the Government, that it
would not be wino to have tbe date of
the eloction conflict witb the meeting
of tho Grand I. 0. 0. F., whiah meets
in Victoria on the lllth, l-lth nnd loth
of Juno. Their delsgates will naturally want to be home when the oleotion
tnkos place.
Ou being asked if the attitude of the
party leaders at Ottawa had anything to
do with the hastening of a dissolution,
the Premier simply replied tbnt he had,
upon assuming tbe reins of Government, declared for a dissolution and
general election at tbe earliest powible
tuonieut. The present step was merely
in pursunnoe  of tii is policy.
F. Cortor Cotton, leader of tbe Provincial party, arrived in town last
night and was asked this morning
what effeot the action of the Conservative convention would have on his
policy, or if, being Conservative, he
would plnco candidates in Ibe field in
opposition to tbe party to wbich he
bulonged. Mr. Cotton replied tbnt he
i- ni Id not yet discuss the matter. That
his visit to tho capital was on purely
private business, aud bu could not say
what courso he would puisue. It ia
not icgaiilcd as probable in politioal
circles, however, that Mr. Cotton will
1 nu as a candidate in Victoria in op-
position to tbe Conservatives,but that
tho light will b3 between the Government and Conservative candidates,
with the Liberal free lancu in b
matter.
Mr. Cotton thinks tbe Rossland settlement will not strengthen Martin,
boing attributed solely to Mr. Ralph
Smith. In other rospuats Mr. Martin
is losing grouud, in bis o^iniou.

bad man, whom nil honest Liberals
are warned to shun. Mr. Peters was
chairman uf the convention, and
when exception was taken to Mr.
Davis's resolution of nou-cniifldenae in
the Martin Government, he ruled that
it was in order and might properly be
considered. That is why Tbo World
has changed from ndorntinii to execration. Iu other words, Mr. Peters is
not a Martin Liberal, ami therefore
must be bad. Ho would deserve com-
inisoratiou if it woro not that ho has
so many others to keop him cotuito-
nance. When the Duvis resolution
name np Mr. Mnrtin protested thnt tbe
convention had nothing to do with
the Martin Government; that it was
not called to consider it, und had no
right to discuss it. Yet when the Martin rump met after the adjournment,

POSTAL VAGARIES.
If haste is a ooniii iration and you
want to post letters for Rossland, send
tbem by express. That may be a bull,
bnt it is unquestionably good advice.
Tbe Miner is fortunate in having a list
of subscribers in RoBsland. Tbeir pa
pers are posted here iu tir.ie for the
first train out, the O. P. It., whiob
loaves at 8 o'clook. Passengers and
express by this train make olose con
iieetions at Robson, and arrive at
RosHland at noon. But all mail matter is held here for tbe 9:15 train over
tbe Nelson and Fort Sheppard, which
does uot arrive at Rossland until three
iu the afternoon. Subscribers have
complained of the delay, and uow The
Miners destined for tbat oity are sent
by express.
It is even worse np through the SIo
can. Miners by mail on tbe 9:00 train
out may roach tbeir destination the
same day, or the next.or the next. I
we take Alamo as an example, it is
invariably next or next, never tbe
same. If put into tbe Sandon bag the
papers reach Alamo at 8:80 the follow
ing morning; if into tbe Three Forks
bug they do not arrive until the same
hour tbe second day. Tbe two bags
aro used indifferently, the choice de.
piuding ontirely on whiob ono is most
convenient at the moment. If gent b
express, papers for Alamo arrive on
the afternoon of tbe day of publication ! The express beats th - post by
sixteen hours in tbe one case,and forty
hours in the other.
Whorever tbe express oan go the mnil
csu go. Coth are carried by tbe same
train, and tbe same train oan serve
bnth nt the same time. There ie no
reason why the Rossland mail should
not be seut ont by the early O. P. R.
tiam, which cniries pasengers and express for that city. There is no reason
why the mail should not reaoh Sandon, Three Forks, or Alamo as soon as
the express, for tho train that canies
the express could cairy the mail.
These things do not happen, however,
and thev do not happen because tbe
postal authorities are careless of the
public convenience throughout the
whole of Southern British Columbia.
It is not as if the railway fnoilities
wore still tn their raw state; thoy
w-re established several years ago,
nml have been operating regularly ever
sinoe. It spanks badly for our mail
service when (or tho public oonvcu
iencn it is necessary to resort to the
express. No blame attaches to the
Mellon PostJCfflci,which is obliged to
follow instructions. If this matter
weie properly repiesented to the authorities at Ottnwa, Ihe disgrace of It
would surely limine them into aotion.
The Inspector in this district should
be Informed that expedition is the
most essentiul requirement of the postal service. This is something he does
not appear to know. At ths same time
ho should be instructed to have a bag
supplied for the Alamo mall. Ho or
his superiors have frequently beeu
asked for this, but so far the reqnesl
hns boen ignored.
Reviewing the oonvention, Tho
Daily Times, Greenwood, strougly
Liberal, says:" "If these Liberals,
who wero enamored of Martin's npe-
ciouB arguments, are uot now convinced tbnt he is anxious to exploit
his perHonnl Interests rather thnn advance the Liberal cause, nothing will
convince tbem. If ihe Liberal party
hope to sneccod, hope to maintain tho
proud position it always occupied in
the politics of this conntry. it must be
purged of every semblance of Muitin-
iBin. it can now be clone only at the
polls. The unpleasant duty may mean
await of 0 few years for party success,
but temporary defeat uuder the circumstances would eventually mean a
glorious victory for Liberalism." It
is unfortunate for the Liberal party
thut this marplot has stumbled in to
disrupt it; but if given n crushing de-
fiat, as no doubt awaits him, we shall
have the last of Mr, Martiu and the
party can luisn its head again.

I Martin O'Reilly & Co.*
To suoie a poiut, Mr. Martin proclaimed from the housetop that
Orow's Nest oonl was not subjeot to
royalty. It wns clearly shown that it
wns and is. Mr. Martin wrote a letter
ucknowlodging his mistake,whereupon
The Monetary Times, Toronto, remarks: "This is, perhaps, about the
only instance that ever occurred in
wbich Mr. Martin was glad to find
and admit that be was in the wrong.''
Our contemporary has a good idea of
his obaraoter, bnt does not quite know
bim. Much as he hates tbe Crow's
Nest Coal people, bo would rather they
escaped royalty forever than that he
should be discovered in making suoh a
flagrant blunder. He would rather be
a million times wrong thnn once found
out. His admission was not an aot of
grace, but of policy.

An old friend, leaflets of Canadian
History, published by Mr. G. U. Hay,
of St. John, N. B., ban strayed into
The Miuer ollice. and ia as welcome
as the flowers in May. These leaflets
are published quarterly as a supplement to The Educational Review, and
have for their subjects some striking
event in Canadinn history, written by
men eminent iu Canadian letters. In
the current issue Sir James LeMoine
bas two papers, Benjamin Suite one,
Rev. Moses Harvoy, of Newfoundland,
one. Amoug the other contributors to
tbe series aro Sir John Bourisot, Mr.
Haiinay, Prof Qanong, nnd others
equally capable. We do not know anything that will tend more to popularise Canadian history than those bright,
olever papers, as interesting as a
novel.
Dewey does not say that he in a candidate for Presidential nomination,
but that he is willing to become one.
Mr. Cleveland is icported to be strongly in favor of his being taken np bv
the Democrats. In the interview
purporting to gjvo his views the
ex-President is made to say, in tefor-
once to tho demoralised condition of
the Democrats: "A pnitv mny be degraded iu n short space of tune, but a
strong man, who is the incnrnnliou
of principles whicli tho   people beliovo
In, onn at   a favorahlo    nt   stem
the tide and the disrupted party nou
begin a njw chapter." Admiral Dow-
ey is not that strong man, and the only
person in sight who will answer to tho
description is Mr. Cleveland himself.
Mr. Martin has gained hia point,
wbioh ia also the Governor's point.
The elections are held baok until new
lists oan be prepared, and in tbeir
preparation we may be sure tbat the
Government will press for all the advantage the opportunity will afford
them. The desperate character of their
fortunes will make tbem reckless;
they must win, or forever disappear
from tbe political stage. Tbey will
stick at nothing, and they have a cunning, resourceful, unscrupulous leader.
The great bnlk of the Liberals in
Nelson are opposed to Mi.Martin. We
understand they are anxious to join
forces to insure not only tbe defeat of
bis oandidate, but of any other
amorphous oandidate who may set np.
Let tbe sober, sensible heads get together and see what oan be done abont
it.

POLITICS
situation ln tho city 01 Nelson In a
Very Unsettled   Condition
at Present.
What is Being Done Politically ln Othor
portions ol the Provlnca.-Gen-
oral Local News.
The political situation in Nelson, as
it relates to Proviueial iiliuirs, is in a
uliglitly unsettled condition. It In is
generally believed, However, that the
contest here will bo upon party Hues.
The nomination of  Governor Maolclo-
toil) at Rowland, and the detilaraticm
Of the Victoria Conservatives in favor
oi pnrty linos, it is believed will hnve
its effeot upon other pnrtH of Iho IJrov-
iuoa for party lines where the situation was before in doubt.
The Conservatives are certainly taking the lead in the matter, as ihey already have candidates ohoson at small
points in tho Province. Some are
runuing on a straight party line platform. Others, while Conservatives,
are boing supportod by Liberals who
are oppnied to Martin ami his administration. Taylor, iu Revelstoke, is
miming on party llneB and will proh-
nbly be opposed by Kelly, a Libeial,
who in as strongly opposed to Martin,
an iB Taylor. It is not likely a Martin
candidate will enter the field tbeie.
Toulton is rnnning as a Conservative
in Kamloops and iB reoeiviug Liberal
snppoit also. McBride iu Dew<lney
bun uo opposition up to date. In Sem-
lin'fl old eonBtituenoy, Mnrphy is rnnning, nud he will have for an opponent
Hon. George Washington Beebe, the
only oandidate so far seleoted by the
Martiu administration aside from the
Premier himself. Pour Conservativen
will contest the Vnnoouver oonstitnen-
eiei in a straight party line fight.
These bave not yet been seleoted, but
the following names have been mentioned: Wilson, Seymour, Tisdal, McAllister, Cowan and BaBcombes. It is
supposed tbat Cotton will endeavor to
put up a ticket, and Martin, of oouise,
will do so. It is understood, too, that
tbe TradeB and Labor Council ol Van
conver,will put some men in the field.
In Esquimau the Conservatives will
have two caudidateB and in Viotoria
them will be Turner, Helmoken and
McPnillips, with a fouith to be
chosen.
As already stated, the situation in
Nelsou is unsettled. The Conservatives claim to bave a majority* and
have declared for party linos. Prom
indications it would appear that the
Martiu following will out but littli
figure, as tne strength ot the Liberal
party is opposed to him. The 011I5
candidate so far spoken of is John
Houston, who is apparently seeking
the Liberal support by his abuse uf the
Conservative party. The Liberals,
however, do not seem to warm np to
him and Home prominent ones express
the opinion tbat, if the Liberals do not
put a candidate of tbeir own in the
field, a great many of *theiri will sup
port the Conservative nominee. It i^
understood tbat the Conservatives will
meet shortly to determine whnt stops
will be taken.

Because a Watch has
run for yenrs is no indication that it does not
need cleaning. Many a
watch is ruined by being let run too long without it. The oil becomes

little machine becomes
cut and worn. We have
every facility for replacing any part, or making
a watch throughout if
necessary. First-class
work onlv.

lietter now. For 80
yearn I have been treating
those peculiar nervous
symptoms which result
from youthful errors or
later excesses, such as
Drains, Impotency, tame
Hock, Varicocele, etc., from
so vaat au experience I can
usually offer men. Bingle
or married, valuableadvico
Reader, I wish it was
within my power to show
every weak man what results I am getting from my
famous appliance the
Dr. Sanden Electric Belt
and suspensory attachment.     It is a never failing- restorer ol   strength  if used
properly
You may believe when I show you 7000 unsolicited testimanials of absolute
cures���names and addresses���received during 1899. This belt is the result of
patient years of study
DR. M. SANDEN, 474 Main Street, Winnipeg
Office Hours:    9 to 6.
It developed from a
portable chain battery I
invented twenty-five
years iijjo. It has undergone many changes, un
til today it embodies the
best features of all electrical appliances, ami
constitutes what I consider a perfect home self-
treatment for men. It
is really a portable battery of 30 elements.
Weight 6 ozs. Current
instantly felt though
regulated to any degree
of strength while on the
body by using regular
thumb screw. Worn all
night. Soothes,
strengthens, cures   while
you sleep

Alalmstinc is especially adapted for plain tinting and whitening, and is easily applied in snub work- by anyone who can read
our simple directions and handle a brush:
IT   IS   SANITARY
and cleansing, as well as beautiful, and is positively permanent;
that is, when applied on a Bolid surface the coaling cnn be
repeated in thin coats from time to time for years, aa long hs the
plastering stands, without retu6ving the old Alabastine coats, and
every coat so lidded strengthens thu wall and hardens with age.
