savs a Paris dispatch to The World
His statement may bo relied upon ns

Regarding the Boers' ability to hold

"There is not thn least doubt of their

London,Fob. (i.--Tho Impression that

it has no news to oouflrm that belief.
From Oape Town, under today's date,
comes the Statement that up to this
���i." uii)", nothing   bns been beard there
regarding   General Buller's re-oroaa-
iug the Tugela Kivor, while Field
Marshall l.nrd Huberts, in n dispatch
dated Monday February B, reports no
ohnnge in the situation. In view of
the bitter's ilispntches it seems hard tn
credit tbo circumstantial reports of
the engagement ot-General Buller's
troops. The complete silnnco from the
front and at home may be significant,
as the witeanree nver, but it more
probably represents that period of preparation which precedes nn important
movement.    In   other   units tluin   the
Tugela the conditions of Information
are fonrcflly more satisfactory, There
is an inconclusive vagueness regarding
General French's reported intention
to seize Norval   Font,  with   an   over-
wheliuning foioo of Infantry, While
news of sharp fighting in the neighborhood of Colesburg can be fairly expected within n few days, it is lint likely
that it will assume greater proportions
than reeounaissnnces and skirmishes
for the pntpne of holding the uilvane
Bd positions of the forthcoming main
advance by way of Bloemfontein,
General French is Btrategionlly prohibited from running any serious risks.
Lord Roberts' reply to Presidents
Kruger and Stoyn creates an excellent
impression hero.
Frum Kimberley and Mafeking there
is nothing now, so it ciiu be presumed
that the Intermittent bombardment of
theso pluces continues.

The immigration of Chinese may
be au evil. Many in Hritish Colombia
seem to havo adopted that opinion,
whether or not it is founded on reason. It is uot necessary, however, to
take up that question iu discussing
the legislation the HouBJ is being
usked tD euuet looking to their tx-
1 In',11 ni. We do not need tn read anything into tbe Bill Introduced by Dr
McKechnie; it speaks for itself, or, it-
it does not, the hon. tho Picsident of
tho Council speaks [or it. Iu the original draft it is provided that no person
shull be permitted to work in a coal
111 ine who cannot rend the pit instructions in English, This was aimed at
tho Chinese exclusively, but it was
soon seen that it wonld apply to others as well���to the illiterate of our own
race among the rest. It is Intended
to move an amendment iu tbe Committee stage that will overcome this
objection. It wus so aiinouneid by Dr.
McKochnio when moving tho second
reading of the Hill, We shall quote
a seutenco or two of tho hon. gentleman's speech. "Iho miners employed at Nanaimo, ho Bald,"at tbe Union
mines, at tbe Extension mines, and
others, include,! Belgians, Finns, and
others who wero found to bo good
miners. They would bo permitted by
this amendment to have nu entire
year in which to familiarise themselves with reading in English one
single document, namely, tho special
rule." So much lor them. Then he
went on: "With regard to Chinese
and Japanese, ho did not intend to interest himself very much with them.
He believed that their employment ill
this Province was a direet detriment
to the Proivnce of Hritish Columbia,
and he did not think that this or any
other 1 "'.''niiiii nt should lay themselves ont to think very mnoh about
the welfare of   Chinese   or Japanese.'
These will not be given 11 year's pro
batlon ; they will not be permitted to
familiarise themselves with the reading of one liltle sentence, or n Iini
oven ; they nre to bo snuffed out, killed off, summarily without benefit of
clergy. If tho Kill hud named them,
the purpose could not have been made
moro direct. It ar pears at this moment as if the legislation thus amended will pass. In elTect it will bo neither more nor less   vnlid   than   tho   Act
hat the highest judicial authority in
tho Umpire bns already pronounced
to be oltra vires of the Provincial Leg
slature. It will not bo woith tho pa
per it is printed on. Kut two ends
will bo gained by iti it will gratify
the labor agitators, and it will put
those terrible Duiisninirs to tbe expense of contesting it in the court(
nud ultimately having it declared invalid by tho Judicial Committee of
tho Imporinl Privy Council. Tbo
work of legislation in this Province
has been degraded to tho wretched
level of pandering to ignorant prejudices uml passions, and nf annoying
and persecuting thn most enterprising
citizens of the Province for tho offence
ol being wealthy. Wo ilu not know
that ani'thing could hn said to Stay
this madness, but our legislators will
some day renliso that they are raising
a demon which will co-it us ninny mix
1 iiiih and tmuhlous inomcnti.
His Excellency's Speoch on thn opening of Parliament very appropriately
t<sik oo-iiizaiiie of tho splendid generosity ol Lord Strnlhcona iu furnishing
a tnsip at his own expense for service
in South Africa. It is miiunilicent. It
is a sordid view to tuke, no doubt,
but there is aim In it an immense ad*
vertisemint  for Canada,   Ureal Krit-
11111 und Europe generally have Lan;
regarded Ibis country bs limited in re-
sources and Opportunities. The yniiiiK
Englishman who had thousands to invest and looked to make them millions went off to Austniliu or the United States, for from these countries came
stories of   vast   wealth iu   mines   and
ranches. No one hud beard of wealthy
Canadians, and the natural  conclusion
The Premier wus asked iu the House
the oilier day if ho had submitted In
the Dominion authorities the infers of
Victoria uimI Vancouver, to supply
fifty mounted men "uch in addition to
the bundled whom tho Province bus
Offered to furnish, Mr. Sum I in replied that he had not felt himself justified in forwarding tho oilers, as he
had no evidenoe that those municipalities Were prepared to make them
good. Tbo reply was au eminently
proper and sensible oue. As Premier
of the Government Mr. Bemlin bud no
right to make himself responsible for
any proposals of the kind. Ho might
with eipial reason have added that
tliese displays of patriotism are just
a trillo overdone, and that tho Province is milium: the risk uf making itself n laughing stock for thu rest of
the Dominion, Au agitation is on
foot to influence the Federal authorities to send ten thousand nddittouul
troops to Soulh Africa. Ono wonld
think it was Hritish Columbia thnt
wns at war with the Hoers, and not the
British Empire, Por a while yet this
exuberance of patriotic ardor will pass,
and until it does our remarks will bo
susceptible of misconstruction ; but the
time is near at hand when wo sha
realise that Great Britain can settle
this affair of tbe Transvaal without
every man in British Colombia offering to resolve himself Into a couioany
of rough liders or 11 battery of mountain artillery.
On bis motion for the second lending
of tho Bill to amend the Coal Mines
Regulation Act, Dr. MoKoohflie mode
a long speech, and closed with the
following: "Wh havo cot lu pnt our
foots���onr feet���down /irmly, look this
thing straight in the face, and even if
some persons nre trodden upon at th
outset, we have got to turn over a new
leaf and keep on tho right truck, onre
wo are started." This is a little
ambiguous. Are we keep on the
track of the foots, of the thing with
tho face, or of the new leaf? Heal
thi learned   Doctor ought to   hu  asked
to esplain.
Mr. Mulock is announcing with n
gront deal of pleasure, aud apparently
not a little  surprise, that   the   loss of
revenue oansed through  the reduction
of tho postal rate will be made good
in a few months mole by tbe increase
in correspondence. Thnt has so in
variably been ihe experience both hen
and in oilier countries,when rates have
been reduced, that nne is curious ti
know what Mr. Mulock finds iu it tn
bo surprised at.
Wo gather from the Speech at Otta
wa the other day that Parliament wil
be asked to make Federal provision
for the arbitration of labor troubles,
There is to bo a Board, not exactly ol
arbitration, hut of coiicilation���snnuy
smiles, ns it   were.    If  sunny   enough
to effect settlements, it  will deserve a
warm welcome.

The Coon Town   41)0   Play to a  LnrKe
Audience.
A clean, clever entertainment is always well patronized in Nelson and
the reception ncconled the Coon Town
400 is another proof of it. The prr-
fonmince was bright and clever
throughout, the singing and dancing
Leing Bpeoially pood. Miss Adams
sang the ' Suwnnee Kiver" vory
sweetly, and Miss Blantou brought
down the house with the "Soldiers tf
tbe Queen." Churles Arnold, as com
eilinu, nnd Will Humphrey's banjo
playing received tho applause they well
merited, while the audience could not
have euongb of Dude Kelly's ilnucing.
Ho is certainly the best dancer in ins
own lino that hus ever appeared in
town.
Touiubt will be a minstrel performance, a complete change of programme,
nnil at reduced prices. Rudynrd Kip
ling's "Absent Minded Beggar" will
be one of tbe songs nunc tonight.
