The delegate held his ground nntil

under construction with the least poH-

THK WHARF TENDERS.
Wi- think vie are safely within tlie
mink in saying thai the sober, intelligent, reflecting port inn nf I lie community are profoundly surprised Unit
Mr. .lohn Houston shnnld have found
anyone iu the Couooil in support
bim in his attitude on those wharf
tenders. His report ami his arguments
supporting it, when- not absolutely
stupid or dishonest, are lmt crude hits
of very cheap socialism, which he
has imbibed without himself ever having understood them. He is still play
iug to the labor gallery. He is not sat-
isiied with the incalculable mlsohlet
he helped to do ill egging on the min
ers in the dispute that is now happily
nettled, iii magnificent contempt of all
his teachings and preaohings; lmt litis endeavoring to pose as the champion
of the workiugninn in the City, while
if the tiutb were knnwu we have uo
doubt it would be discovered tbat ho
has some end of his own to seive.
'the intelligent workiugman must
himself by this time lie growing impatient of the patronizing attentions
thus forced upon bim.
Tbere is not a sensible man in tbe
community who does not believe with
Dr. Hall, that a contractor will get
more nut of a clow nf men than a
municipal corporation. We have had
several fine buildings put op iu the
Citv dnring thn past year, each costing
many thousands of dollars, In not
one instance were they erected* hy day
labor. The Bank nl Montreal, the
Hudson's Kay Company. Mr Burns,
nnil Mr. Madden all asked for tenders
and had the work done by contract,
knowing that iu doing so they would
get better value for their money. Mr.
Houston himself had a block erected.
ami the work was by contraot. Why
did be not give practical effect to this
day labor theory in his own case': We
need not scurry around for a reason ; it
wns because be was then acting for
Mr. .loliu Houston, aud bad a regard
lor the dollars. In the case of the
wharf h�� is net ing for the Oity, and is
reckless of its interests so long us there
is something to be gained   by himself,
The Whole double is that Mr. Say*
ward's tender for lumber is the lowesl ;
the contract does not go lo the old
sawmill Ihat looms so largely in Mr.
Houston's affection, 'ibis lumber is to
be brought from an outside point, and
the |ioor laborer here is robbed for the
benefit of the laborer at Pilot Bay.
The City must have lumber that is
sawed by the labor of the Oily. This
is a curious argument to advance in
behalf of a Oity that is seeking to become the great distributing centre of
Southern British Columbia. It will never be so thiough 11 poliey of selflshness
anil exclusion. Besides, the ratepayer, who figures pretty largely in the
matter, does not care to In, lined to tbe
extent nf the difference  between the
two tenders ill support ni any such be-
niglili'd poliey aH that. And above
and beyond all else is tbn imperative
duty Ol evi'lj    good   citizen   to   frown
down every attempt to foment and In*
alts class prejudices. There has been
ton much of that already. No man
can tell yet what evils will grow from
tbe seeds sown during the past few
months. Iu our little community of
Nelson tbete is iullneme enough to
discourage local efforts of the kind if
we but   exert   it.    This   panderiug   lo
class is a monstrous abomination, and
there is no higher duty than that of
ridding ourselves of it as ipeedll] aud
as completely as possible.
,d 1 Iif wirepullers and bosses of the
parly have been struggling for the
mastery. It is said that thu successful
clenient, with the sanction of Mr.
Bostook, has pitched upon the corner
of Ward aud Veruou streets, opposite
the Hume Hotel in one direction and
the Grand Central in another, with
Tin' Miner office close up nu the flank,
lhe Hume, Grand Central, nnd The
Miuer form goodly company for a Oov-
eminent building, but thev do not continue the City. They are important
and command consideration,but neilh-
1 llcy nor the few wholesale houses
down in that part of the City must be
allowed to dominate the whole. The
convenience of the majority should
govern in the seleotion of a Post-Office
site, and the convenience of the majority is certainly not considered in selecting the corner of Ward and Vernon. We are strongly of the opinion
ihat a mistake is being made, and the
citizens should at onoe nrotest agaiust
it. A Post-Office building in Nelson
should not be located 1101th of Victoria
street, Victoria is as convenient to
the main business street ns Vernon,
and it is immensely *noro convenient
for the great bulk of the population
who do not herd in stores and otllcos.
Under lhe host ol conditions there is a
great deal of climbing bills iu Nelson,
more than the ordinary citizen cares
for; to nut this Post-Ollice building at
the curlier of Ward nnd Vermin would
lis tn compel a very considerable quau-
tity ol extia climbing. It may suit
snnin wirepullers to select the site pio-
posed, but it would entail a wholly
needless infliction on four-fifths of the
population who daily uso tho Post-
Ollice.      	
Mr. lireen and Mr. Hamilton Byers
have telegrnp'ied in Kaslo from Victoria to say there is untiling in the report, as far as they know or can ascertain, thai the Government intends
in increase lhe ins on minea aud their
output. Nothing of the kind has yet
been proposed or suggested. We do
not think there need be any apprehension on this score The Government's
means nnd oppotrnnities fir further
mischief art' about at an end.

Mayoi Houston's net inn in ennnce
tion with the lenders for -applies for
mid the ooustrootion of the City wharf
extension is being severely criticized
by business nicn cf Nelson. The Ken-
oral impression seems to be that much
belter results can ho obtained from
contract labor thun from dav labor.
It. is pointed nut that the men employed by the company making the lowest
hid for the supply of liiinli*r spend all
their money In Nelson and that tbe
lowest bidder for the construction will
engnge tho same men who would have
to be engaged by the Oity. Tho contractor, too, is iu 11 position to begin
work nt once whereas the City would
have to secure pile drivers, etc., before
anything could be done. The feeling
is that the bids are as low as e.-iulrt
he expected nnd that the work should
be done by those who were asked to
bid and who put in the lowest tenders.

LONDON'S  ONLY   TOPIC
London, Feb. 17.���With Oeneral
Cronje in full retreat and General
Kelly-Kenny harrnssing his rear, hopes
run high tbat a docisive action will
occur, if it has not alreidy beeu
fought. The dispatches from Jacobsdal confirm this belief, saying General
Cronje bos beeu obliged io"outspnn'
from a laager oi camp, m other words,
in order to rest his oxen. This explains Gonernl Kelly-Kenny's Into dis--
patch referring to shelling the laager,
which dispatch also brought tbe long
expected word of General   Kitchener's
whereabouts,   The   general   who   so
relentlessly pursued the Khalifa to his
doom is supervising the pursr.it of
General Cronje and adds greatly to the
confidence of the nation,now so engerly
wniting furthel news. General Tucker
with tho Seventh division is able to
effect the projected junction with the
forces of General Kelly-Kenny while
the Ninth division under General
Colvillo is rapidly coming np trom the
rear. The hero of Khartoum should
then have u sufficient force to decisively engage General Cronje and
prevent him from reaching Bloemfon-
tein with an   effective force.
Over the whole Modder Kivor district there is such tremendous military activity that it Is hard to realize
tho area covered or grasp the full
meaning of   the movement.  The Boers
though retreating from  Magersfontein
ure aotive elsewhere. A special dispatch frinn Orange River,dated Priday
Keb. 10, says they are attempting lo
cut tho British line of comronnontiona
at Graspan, lint it is suid tbey arc not
likely to effect a serious result, though
they nre undoubtedly making a Mruim-
ous effort to cut the British lines to Ilo
Aar.
On the other hand conies the news
that General Macdonald has again occupied Koodoosberg What precautions
Loid Roberts has adopted agaiust attack are nut known hut war office and
public are thoroughly convinced thai
he is fully able to c.pe with all contingencies and thai if it is within  Iiii-
nian poslbllitiea will Inflict tbe_defeat
on General Cronje tbat is so much
more important than the relief of Kimberley, hrillant as was the latter
achievement. While General Kelly-
Kenny's or rather Gererul Kitchener's
dispatch referred to the Boer rear
guard as being Geueral Cronje's, it
still is doubtful if Ihe General is personally with it, and it is possible he
may bo employing more than one linn
of retreat. The reported capture of a
large British couvoy by the Boers is
not mentioned otliciallv.    There  is  no
uews of importance frmu elsewhere on
the sceue of the war.
Dispatches Irani Capetown announce
that enthnsinslic demonstrations were
made on the announcement of the relief of Kimberley. Government House
was surrounded by hugh crowds and
the British High Commissioner ami
Governor of Cape Colony, Sir Alfred
Ullner, received au ovation. The house
which Lord Roberts occupied on his
arrival at Capo Town was similarly
feted and there wore parades through
the city, cheering for   "Bobs."    Flags
wore fiying aud hostile demonstrations
took   place   nutsido   newspaper   ntliees
sympathetic  to  the Boors and before
iii" reeldon.es nf the ministers supposed Ui bo ill sympathy Willi Iho Burghers.    Tho relief was similarly celobrat
>"I in other towns of Capo Colony.
The llrat unit nf the special   corps of
Yeomanry culled the "Dnke of Cambridge's iivmi," left London Ihis
morning to *inbark  ut   Southampton
for South Africa. The force is composed entirely of men of good social
position. Lord Ablnger wean corporal's stripes while Lord Aileshury is

London, Feb. 18.��� 8:80 a. m.��� The
war ollice made the usunl statement al
midnight that it hnd no news, hut al
about the same time dispatches arrived
from Durban dated last Saturday even
ing with reports of the renewed fight
ing on the Tngela whore the cinsoi
had stopped all telegrams. Arrivals al
Durban from the Tngela snys import
ant operations uro progressing ami
that lighting has occurred daily since
Iho commencement of tho week. In
these engagements tlio British casual-
tics hnvo been comparatively light.
According to these unooiifiimod re
ports General Buller bad occupied Vunl
Kraiitz and the Boeis had retreated in
the direotlon of the Free State. In
the meantime wounded ollicers and
men arc arriving daily nt Dmhau and
aie placed aboard the four hospital
ships now there. Dispatches from Zu*
Inland received ut Durban sny the
country is quieting down, thanks to
the uppeaiaiice of the flying column.
The Boers seem nervous and uncertain and havo stayed their advance.
Paris, Feb. 18.���The London correspondent of The Figaro says ho learns
that President iMcKinley recently
sounded Lord Pauncefote, with a view
of asceratining how un offer of mediation in the Tiansvaal difficulty on the
part of tho Uuited States would be received and that the British reply was
that suob au offer made officially

cess but tho more valuable result���tho
destruction of a part of the Boers
aimy���has not boon secured. It cuunnt
ho said unrter the circumtsances, that
this is attributable to weakness in
llrilish generalship which seems to
have hoen excellent." There are disputing features in tho news. The
capture by Boeis. said to have come
fiom Colesburg, of a large British convoy may diminish the mobility of the
llrilish force nnd is n proof of the energy of tbo Boor leaders. The vigor
ens attack on the British at Rensburg
shows thnt tbe Bo:*rs mean to reply to
Lord Roberts advance by striking nt
his communications. Until the issue of
the operations mound Kimberley is
fully known, it is useless to speculate
upon tho next move of Lord Roberts, The fact that Kimberley has
been relieved and that Cronje baa to
make a hasty retreat nre to the good
side of the account. The opiuiou is
widespread that the invasiou of the
Free State will bring the Boar army
or nt lea-t. the Free State contingent
out of Natal. Upon this point I am
less sanguine than most of tho English
observers, but the news of Roberts' allowance will encourage General White
and his men to prolong their   defence.

Jacobsdal, Feb. 17.���Lord Roberts'
troops hnve entered this town which
hns been in the possession of the British since yesterday. Tho utmost order
prevails. Military police patrol the
streets but not a stick of furniture, not
even un opplo from tho trees has been
taken. A sentry is placed before each
store nnd soldiers are ouly allowed to
enter and purchase whnt they require.
Everything is so peaceful that the
Inhabitants express the utmost surprise
as it has heen reported that the British occupation meant iustaut looting.
Judging fiom tbo conversation of inhabitants the Free State is weary of
war. It is openly said that President
Stuyn betrayed the people. When the
latter became satisfied thoro was no
truth in the statements of tho looting
proclivities of tbo British the townspeople welcomed the troops as friends.
Since tho battle of tbo Modder River
the town bus not been garrisoned bnt
bus been merely used us a hospital.
When the Boers fired on tho British
Wednesday the townspeople protested
althnngh the British shelling yesterday
considerably frightened tho women.
The shells were ouly directed at the
range beyond the town which wns entrenched. The large German hospital
remains in beautiful order. It is el6.ui
nnd sanitary and wcumled on both
sides are well tabou care of.
A coirespondent talked with a number of the Boer wounded after tbo
Burghers suirendered. Even now they
are under tbo impression that the sole
object was the capture of Jacobsdnl.
When informed of tho relief of Kimberley they were first incredulous und
then astonished. Tho Landrost remains iu town.
News reached here thut tho Boers
are leaving Magersfontein nud are returning in disorganized masses to the
farms. The invasion of tbe Free State
has undoubtedly stiuck a hnrd blow
which may result in the defection of
large numbers of the Free Staters.
