Sandy Hook gently tugging at a green

Columbia there was no aotivitv, early
ill the day it hnd been the purpose of
visitors ro go outside with the Shamrock and test her new equipment,
bur though she came down the haibor
from her remeasurenient early this
afternoon, the shortening daylight
afforded too litllp time after nil her
rigging being snugged, Half punt, four
o'clock the Erin steamid dowu from
the upper bay to hfi' moorings within the Ho"k. Standing on ihe bridge,
tho Shamroek's owner observed the
lust deinil of ber preparations un, h s
hope for ii spin out today pave wiiy io
a conviction of it-i impossibility, As
the Erin's screw censed turning nnd
she slowed down for her mooring, Sir
Ihinias was peering through bis glass
towards the Narrows where he sighted
the big liner Oceanic bearing down,
outward hound, "I shall go outside
wiili the Ocean ie," he said, "to bid
good bye to Lord Beresford aud other
friends on board." A little Inter,
while Sir Thomas chatted nnd lei nel
on the quarter deok bulwarks, a little sloop sailed by within hailing distance. The man tlmeon held aloft a
mug of beer nnd shouted heartily:
"Here's loos to yor for rcrnwrow Sir
Thomas "
A half amused sniilo overspread the
face of tho Si amrnck's owner as he
heard, and he lifted his cap,
"Do yon know," be ejaculated,
"there huve eonie to me many evidences of good v> ill, here for instance."
Sir '1 hoinas, selected one of the
several telgrums that he hid jus1 been
reading, "bote is some friend who
says: 'Dou't be discouraged, Sham-
-ook may lose, but Sir Thomas wins
the respect und goon will of millions
of Americans.' "
"And if the Shamrock should lose
now, how long before In r owner may
appear with another bi ut to lay siege
to the trophy," wus asked,
"Ah, that brings mo back," snid Sir
Thomas, "to the gteatost rlifflonlty I
huve confronted here, 1 must be sure
of a designer I cannot design a boat,
and 1 must bo certain on that point
before I pun talk of another attempt,
should the Shamrook lose now.
"You sie I am seriously embarrassed

We do not know whether the Shamrock hns ever in these waters sailed on

Lipton took his defeat with the spirit
of n true sportsman.
'It wns a fmr nud squnre brace,"
said ho to an Associated PreBS representative, who saw him on bonrd the
Erin. "We were beaten fairly. No
two boats ever sailed n better race and
they were equally well hnndled ns fnr

Speaking of thu Columbia, he said :
"She is a flue fast boat and was splendidly sailied. We gave three rousing
cheers and her people responded right
heartily. Mr. Iselin nnd those associated with him on board are honorable
gentlemen and I wish to say that it is
a pleasure to sail against such competitors. ''
Asked if he wished to say something
about the Shamrock, Sir Thomas said:
"My boat was well sailed and the
sails were well handled. I have no
ooinplaint to make. As I said before
it was a square race and wo were

to the members of the United States

called Cabinet of Aguiualdo. and alleged letters written by Mr. Wildninn,
Unitod States Consul nt Houg Kong
to Aguinaldo in June and July of lart

the Spaniards here. Replying to
Agninnldo's request tbat the Americans
would arrange for ships.for Spanish
prisoners to Hong Kong, relieving the
Filipinos of the expense of liiaiutniu
ing them, Mr. Wilduian wrote:
" Never mind feeding tbein. A meal
overy day of rice and water will be a
good diet. They have been living too
hiKli during the last few years. As
the Spaniards want more bloodshed in
the Philippines, I trust yon will let
them havo a taste of real war. Do not
be so tender with tbum. Hnndlo them

Mr. Wildman's letter dealt largely
with the shipment of arms. The

anxiety is felt on his account, for the
Natal country where tbe engagement
it is expected is fairly open, ind although the work of moving t-uem will
he difficult the guns are likely to do
good work. The country is not favorable for Boer tactics and it will be
very difficult for they to avoid the exposure of their flanks to attack by a
vigorous and mobile enemy already on-
copying uieful positions; that is, sup
posiug thoy really mean to light and
not merly to attempt to draw General
While further out, with.a view of surrounding him. General White has n
large body of excellent cavalry which
will tie put to good use.

London, Oot. 18.���The Daily Telegraph correspondent at Ladysrnith
bays no newspaper reports are allowed
to proceed from there, either to Best-
era station or Acton Holmes, and adds
that General Joubert's forces are moving against Gleucoe and Resters station on the Harrismith Lynch line.
According to the same authority,
some volnnteeis who hnd just come
from Bester's station und Acton
Holmes before tbe dispatch wns sent,
reported tbat three hundred Boers tried
ineffectually to cut off small parties of
British troops, bnt the militia men
were too wary to be caught, and retired, firing. Tbe enemy as usual, hid
themselves behind hill and rocks und
in gullies, but were unable to advance.
They used cannens against the British riflemen, who nevertheless, maintained a stout resistance. The firing
was very heavy. Tbe country about
Acton Holmes being more open, the
British mounted volunteers there are
retiring upon Deudrop. Two thou
sand Boers were engaged at Acton
Holmes and rather fewer at Rosters
station. It is reported thnt tbe eneinv
is hemmed in   nnd suffering  sevrely.
The Dailv Telegraph commenting
npon the foregoing despatches says it
is difficult to Understand the references
to Glencoe and BeBter's station, except
upon the theory that Commandant
General Joubert is dividing his forces

this morning! referring oditorially to
the coming visit of tbo German Emperor savs : "There is no reason why
he should not meet with a hearty reception. The Emperor's nentrnlity
and pacifio counsel to tho Boers, has
atoned for bis famous Kruger telegram.
It is quite clear that some new negotiations of which Samoa is the turning
point, are in active progress. And the
onderstiinding will probably extend
far beyond the Samoan question."

all reports tend to confirm the belief
tbat Colonel Baden Powell is holding
his own and no credit is given to vague
rumor that u flag of truce had been

A considerable engagement is anticipated in the vicinity of Ladysinitb today. The combined advance of Boers
and Free State troops in this direotion

Sir Wm. Harcourt Maintains
Integrity of Dominions.
NO RIGHT TO GO TO WAR
Deliberately Avoided Peaoeable Settlement
���Nothing Criminal on the Part of
TranBvaal Government,
Loudon, Oot, is. ���Sir William Vernon Harcourt, Libera] Member for
West Monmouthshire and former official lender of the Liberal party following several minor speeches for aud
against tbo Government said it wns
the duty of tbe House to Support the
Government in maintaining Integrity
of the Dominions of the Queen, but
that they had a light to speak of ihe
policy of the Government in an altogether different tone. He went on tc
justify the nppositiou criticism of the
conduct of the negotiations prior to
��� he rece.pt of the ultimatum, declaring bisbeliif that there were salient
circumstances in the transaction which
did not tend to a peaceable solution.
"Although I do not charge the Government" snid Sir William, "with
deliberately avoiding a peaoeable solution in my opinion there is no justification for saying that there Ins been
mything criminal on.the pint of the
Transvaal. Step by step, it will be
found, on wise advice from the Orange
Free State and t.'ie Government of
���tape Colony, the Transvaal, until tho
door wus shut, yielded and was 000-
Inning to rield ti our pressure." He
then proceeded to contrast Mr. Cbam-
i rutin's previous utterances with   bis
resent altitude and asserted that
ibere was absolutely no need to reject
the Transvaal offer of August 5, Tho
language used by Mr. Chamberlain,
jest after that .lffar was made and
when the negotiations hnd readied n
most promising point, could not be
���onsidered favorable to peaceful settlement. Discussing the cause of the dual
breach, Sir William snid: "On Sopt.
ii the Transvaal sent a despatch pressing for a promise of a joint commission to consider their offer on condition that suzerainty be dropped.
Everybody is now convinced that suzerainty was dropped in IKH4 (loud protests Ministerial) utuny rate successive
Secretinlos of State were of that opinion."
Mr. Chamberlain omphatically dissented. Sir William, resuming, went
on to rumurk that suzerainty wus only
formally announced to President Kruger by Mr. Chumhcrlain iu 18110. Ho
commented upon the extraordinary
delay in sonilitig the final proposals   of
Great Britain.
"The British nation,'' ho exclaim*
ed, "has a right to know what the
proposals of the Government. Tbo
Government have no right to involve
the nation in a war in the dark. I
cannot conceive why the it^iiid ofllceB
of tho Orange Free State were reject-
"tl und I tnink the negotiations might
have been conducted differently with
a different issue. 1 disassociate myself
altogether from responsibility of any
kind for the measures that have led to
this war, although I am prepared to
rapport the Government in the conflict
in which we are engaged,"

ITS ORIGIN AND EFFECT.
How we came to get the Eight-Hour
law is thus told by Mr. Hugh Sutherland, through Tho Winnipeg Free
Press:
"Au agitator named Boyce, from
Idaho, came to Kossland with the Bill
already drafted, and accompanied by
two or three agitators, all foreigners
by the way, proceeded to Victoria,
where they prevailed upon tho Government to pass the Bill as drafted in
the States, Now all the miners were
satisfied with their wages and hours
of labor because the former were very
high���13.50 per day for hand work, $4
for machine men nnd fnr very wet
work 50 ceuts a day was added to these
prices. There was no public pdtice of
any kind nor any agitation in favor of
the Bill twenty-four hours prior to
the Introduction of the Bill in the Legislature. It was then smuggled into a
Bill designed for tbe protection nf men
working in mines against accident and
so forth. Iu facf, the Legislature had
prorogued before the mining community understood what   the Bill meant."
Other extracts from this interview
will make interesting reading just
now. Even the mine workers will not
object to this:
"The objection that mine owners
huve to the law is not that eight hours
is au illegal or an unreasounble day's
labor, hut that it restricts the liberty
of contract by declaring that uo man
shall be allowed to work in a mine
more than eight hours, nor can a miner contract to work more than eight
Hours lot him ie ever so willing 01
able without incurring the liability of
a penalty of $500, and his employer incurs a similar liability. It is this
penal clause that makes the law unworkable, and mine owners are often
obliged for the protection of their
mines to employ workmen over-time,
for which they are willinp to pay
handsomely, but under the present lnw
this cannot be done. Now tho miners
find that they are restricted from rank-
ing more money than they can make in j
eight hours, so that the law operates
against the miners and mine owners
alike, and is giving satisfaction to
none except a few professional agitators who are paid by the Western Miners' Association of tne United States.
These ring-leaders demand that the
mine owners shall pay the same wags
for eight hours that was formerly paid
for ten hours, aud tbat no contract
work shall be taken by miners ut any
price. On the latter point, bjwevor,
they have gone too far, and in some
places the miners are taking contracts.
Even under the contract system tho
same restriction regarding the hours
of labor applies.''
That the mine owners do not s'anri
unreasonably in the way of a settlement will be judged from the following:
"The mine owners offer tbe following wages, and wherever mines are
working this scale has beon adopted:
|8 for hand work in drifts and tunnels
per day of eight hours; $3 50 for shaft
sinking per day of eight hours, aud 50
cents per day additional when exceedingly wet work is encountered ; for
machine dri'lers 50 cents a day, extra
011 the foregoing wages is paid for
tho same working day of eight hours
1 believe that this scale of wgaes is
higher than is paid in any other country, but still the Amorican Union,
which controls ttie local organisation!
in British Columbia, forbids its acceptance by the men.''
Of the general effect and the ontlook
Mr. Sutherland   says :
"As to the prospects of the mines
generally, the most of them never looked better? but ns it takes about three
yours to develop a mine, we aie in
most cases in the second and third
stuges of development, only a limited
uuuibei so far paying regular rtivi-
depds. If it were not for the present
trouble, times would he exceedingly
lively this winter In the Eootenny district. That the trouble must end very
soon goes without saying. Tho law
must bo repealed, at least in so fur as
tho penal clause is concerned I want
it to be distinctly understood thnt the
mine owners make no objection to organised labor or miner's unions, or
anything that contributes to the personal safety and comfort of the miners, or as to what shall constitute a
day's work. All we request is a law
that is good for both the owners aud
the men. So far as tbe Dominion
Copper Company is concerned, we have
alroudy ordered a large number of very
comfortable dwelling houses to be
built on tbe Company's property for
married miners in onr employ, and in
other respects we hope to do a grcut
doal, not only to promote the comfort
of tho miners thomselves, but of the
education of their children: as well us
supplying storos for their families at
the lowest possible nrico The same
Bpirit no doubt animatos every roput
able company in the country, and
they ask for nothing but that thoy be
allowed tn develop their mines unrestricted nnd nnlinmpored by nnrenson-
able and unjust laws."
ere related, they will feel inclined,
we are sure, to throw their scheming
and selfish leaders over and hereafter
do their own thinking.
WE MAY KEEP OUR SYMPATHY.

Presbyterian Council at Washington
was thu Rev. Dr. Stewart, for the past
thirty years n resident of South Afrioa. He would be a remarkably unobservant man if, throughout that long
period, he had failed to inform himself pretty thoroughly of tbe condi
tions that have led up to the present
unpleasantness From an interview
which he was induced to give we
gather an impression of the exact op
posite. Ho knows bis South Africa
like a book, and he assures us that
sympathy for Kruger and hia Republic
would be a waste of honest sentiment.
He explains the origin of Boer discontent in a manner not usually found
in thn authorities. It began as far
back as 1888. When Great Britain
abolisbd slavery and paid one hundred
millions of dollars as indemnity to the
owners, tbe Dutch slaveholders of
South Africa received but $6,150,000 of
that sum. The compensation was re;%
garded as insufficient, and *in sddition
to this grievnnce they were disappointed at the loss of a lucrative business.
If they could not engage in the slave
trade in British territory, they would
go of to a new region and make a
country for themselves, where traffic
in hiinau beings could be pursued
without molestation. That was the
origi:i of the groat Boer exodus, and
the foundation also of Boer hatred of
British liberty nud enlightenment.
Although ttie Boers got themselves
to the far side of the Vaal, they did
not place themselves beyond the reach
of civilisation excepting for the time.
In the course of development in that
quarter of the world the British aud
the Boers came into contact again, to
the disadvantage of the latter, who
had tbe influences of modern progress
and euliglitenment always against
them. They were enveloped, indeed,
in tbe march of civilisation, and because they could not wholly escape they
have ever since chafed with resentment. It will be interesting at this
time to quote Dr. Stewart's opinion of
Boer character and policy :
"No superfluous pity or sympathy
uteri be wasted on President Kruger or
the Transvaal Republic. The latter is
a shadow of n name, and as great a
travesty and burlesque on the world up
it is possible to conceive. Four-fifths
of those who have made tbat Republic
what it is by tneir energy, brains und
capital, and their discovery of it as
the richest gold field in the word for
its sizo. if not absolutely, may neither
peep nor mutter. 80 fur ns public life
is concerned, they are liko men gagyed
and pinioned. A few of them don't
cars so long as they are allowed to
make money, even though thev pay
half us much again for dynamite as
they need pay, in order to fill the rockets of those who have arranged with
the Government. Punl Kruger is nt
the present moment the real tl'Oublor
of South Africa. If the spirit nnd
principles which he himself and bis
Government represent were to prevail
in this struggle, it would arrest, tbe development of the sent hern half of the
continent. It is too late in the day by
the world's clock for that type of man
or Government to continue. The plain
fact is this: President Kruger does
not intend to give, never meant to
give, mil will not give anything as n
concession in the shape of just and necessary right3., except what he is forced to give. He wants also to get rid nf
the suzerainty. That darkens und poisons nis davs and disturbs nis nights
by fearful dreams. There is no excuse
for him, and, as I say, there need be
no Boiitiiuent wasted on the subject.
Let President Kruger and his supporters do what is right, and give what is
barely aud simply aud only necessary
as well as right, and the whole difficulty will puss into solution, lo the relief of all concerned, aim the preserve
tion of ponce iu South Africa. If
not, the blame must rest with   him."

COURT J)F_ ASSIZE
FLiNAGAN poUflD GUILTY ON THE
PI11ST CHARGE.
The Presentment of the Grand Jury WaB
Handed in at Yesterday's Session of Oouit,
'Hip rase of Hesziua vr. Miislouka
was resumed yesterday morning be
fore Mr JnBtiofl JMarttn, when cnnn-
scl for both sirli'H nddrossoil the jury,
who bionght in a verdiot of not*gniHy,
Deputy Attorney-General McLean
iippeiirorl for the Crown nnrl Messrs.
Gallihei  & Wilson for tlio prisoner,
Regina vs. Flanagan was the next
oose, tlm facts of whinli linvo already
been referred to in Tlm Miner, Suffice
it to s-av that the prisoner was founil
guilty of attempting au indeoent a��-
siuilt upfin Essie Frost, a chilli of less
than five years of ago, The jury was
mmle up of tho following : W. Irvine,
foreman; E. B, Phair, W. F. Anderson, T. J. Sims, L. A. Arm it, T. Miul-
ileii, Melvillle S. Parry, A. E. Esk-
rlgge, W. Gillette, \V. Tyler, R. Rob-
erison and C. Morrison.
Flannagan was then arraigned on a
similar charge committed against Mary
Mnslonka, a girl of eleven, fly fi :30
p, m. the cose was still proceeding,
and .is tnere was no chance of its being terminated yesterday, it was adjourned uutil today at 10 o'olook. At
the same time all the jurors, oxeept
those engaged in tho case, were excused from further attendance nt this Assize.
During tho afternoon tbe Grand Jnry
brought in their presentment and llin
Lordship promised that it would by for
warded to tho pnpor quarter. The
doomneut read as  follows:
"In view of the fact thnt every presentment made by previous Grand Juries has received little or no attention
at the hands of the Government, this
Grand Jnry is very loath to bring in
any recommendation ns to the requirements of tho district But, hii-ring
beeu advised hy your Lordship that
it is our doty to draw attentiou to such
matters as we deem beneficial to the
puiilin weal, we earnestly hope that
our views on set forth in this presentment will meet with some recognition
from the proper authorities.
"We congratulate your Lordship upon the light criminal docket in this
rtiatriot, affording ample proof of tho
niuli standard of oharac.er of our citizens.
"Our attention has been drawn lo
llie following matters:
"Firs'���We cannot too strongly cou-
demn ihe present state of tbe Courthouse, which is totally inadequate to
meet ihe den.anils of Ibis rapidly growing district It is entirely too small
for the needs of this miction, hud (he
total absence of heating arrangements,
the apparent neglect as to cleanliness
want of veutilation and lac': of decent
accomodation for judges, juries and
Court officials has become apparent to
every Grand Jury aud to every Judge
who has held Court here in the last
lew years. As we understand that an
appropriation has been made providing
Iho necessary means, we cannot understand tho delay in remedying these
evils.
"Second���We inspected tho Provincial Jail and found that its administration wns a credit to the warden in
charge. The accomodation and cleanliness of the jail strongly contrasted
with the absence of tho same in tho
Conrt House. As it is a matter of public knowledge that four prisoners have
escaped from Iho custody of the jail
during tho last sii months, we carefully
looked into the details of these cases,
and we came to the conclusion that
either the staff supplied the warden is
too small, 01 that he has been given
incompetent warders in sonio cases.
Wo note that the most serious case was
that of one prisoner who escaped from
the jail yard, and with very little expense a repetition of this caso could be
avoii od. With reference to this particular case, tbo piisoner escaped
aoross the International Boundary, and
through the promptness of the Provincial Chief of Police was re-arrested at
Northport on an extraditable offer.ee,
and held by the United States authorities until o r Government was communicated with, we find that it refused to take the necessary action to
have this prisoner returned. This in
our opinion was most regrettable. Our
neighbors we:o willing to assist us
in bringing this criminal to justice,
and oor Government was to parsimonious to sustain our reputation for keeping law and order, and promptness in
bringing criminals to justico at whatever cost a reputation which has been
of such inestimable practical value.
"We recommend that arrangements
be made with the City of Nelson to
have the prisoners break stono for the
streets, as a means of providing employment for the prisoners, and a benefit to the public in general.
"Wo note that owing to the liberal
support of our citizens tho local hospital is being enlarged to double its previous capacity, and we most urgently
recommend this institution to the Government for a more liberal support in
the near futnre.    (Signed)
"FRANK FLETHCER,
"Foreman."
THANKSGIVING.
For a number of years our Governments at Oitawa followed the United
States in naming the date for Thanksgiving Day, putting it as late as the
third or fourth Thursday of November.
In many p.irts of Canada the weather
at that time was anything but favorable to tho enjoyment of a holiday,
and instead of giving thanks for the
bounties of Providence the people gon-
ueriillv were more in the mood of cursing Ministers for their stupidity. But
this is now changed, and today marks
a departure which may be taken as a
declaration of independence of American custom. This is Canada's Thanksgiving Day, for which let us give
thanks.

from a desire to avoid giving evidence

prosecuted the ease of Regina vs. Davis
to tlio Grand Jury and that the ends

mider consideration and while stating
that he would rigidly enforce the
obeyniR of snbpoenns in all cases yet
in view of Mr. Gallihor's explanation
and the fact that he had acted for the
Crown in presenting the case he would
consider the imprisonment of Cunningham under the Bench warrant issued
in the matter, a sufficient punishment
in this case and allowed him his
liberty.

Messrs. D. .1. anil A. A. Steele, will
leave tomorrow for their property on
Forty-Nine Creek, known ns the King
of Forty-Nine to put in a winter's
work developing Ihe property. This
property has already a shaft 4u feet
di ep upon it beside several small tunnels! This winter's work^will be devoted to running a tunnel to tup the
main ledge upon property. They expect to tap the ledge at about 800 feet
depth. The King of Forty-Nine is a
gold-copper properly and runs high
enough to be considered shipping ore
from the start. There is a good trail
to the mine and a wngou roail within
one and one half miles
TO CORRESPONDENTS.
There are two objections to Orlando
MoSwat's letter, one that it is much
too long for our contracted space, and
the other that it ie not accompanied
with the writer's name. Considering
its character, the latter alone is fatal.
If any person desires to criticise tho
attitude of the ladieB of Nelson with
respect to the proposed musio hall, he
will either have to do it over his proper name or communioate it to Th*,
Miner as a guarantee of his responsibility and good faith. Fair Pluy will
uuderstaud from a paragraph elsewhere in this issue why his letter does
nut appear.
SHIP   DESTROYED   AT TAOOMA.
American   Bark     Wilna   Is   a   Tora]

Lumber Company's mill for Australia
nnd had 400,000 feet of lumber helow
decks at the tirnu of the lire. This,
with the vessel, which was insured,
will make the total loss (31 000 The
Wilna's berth was iu the centre of the
St. Paul's long wharf, and vessel lay
close on both sides of her. Bnt for the
prompt notion of a numher of tugs,
which immediate!7 pullod the burning
craft out into the stream, the lire
might havo communicated to half a
dozen other vessels loading at the same
mill.
Tlio Wilna was anchored at a safe
distance from the other shipping and
firebouts and tugs played streams on
tin burning vessel, but without effect.
Miles aud Burdeau, of San Fra, ���
eisco owned the Wilna, aud Captain
Slater hnd been her master for ten
years, She was built at Freeport,
Me., and at the time of the fire was
uninsured.

Fast Riding   Kills   a Vancouver  Carpenter.
Vancouver, Oct. 17.���Walter Burse,
a oarpeuter employed at the sugar refinery here, met death in a peculiar
manner this morning. He stnrted
around Stanley Park for a morning
spin on his wheel at 9 o'clock. He got
nearly opposite the Deadmun's Islajd
bridge when he must have felt siek
and naturally ran his wheel to the
side nf the road. There is a cut in the
tra.k at this point, and the bank on
the inside of the road is five feet high.
It was against this that Burse was
found leaning by two sailors, who happened to pass that way at 10 o'clock,
dead, but still with his bauds on the
handle bars aud himself astride of the
machine. Death had been caused by
heart failure, induced by fast riding
of the wheel.
