of tho Boor tricks to draw our men
out. This afternoon tho Boers blew up
two largo culverts near tho rifio butts
on tho railway line toward Spytfou-
tein. Tho news of tho proximity of
the relioving forces has greatly choered
the garrison and tho inhabitant*. A
few Boers weie seen today, but it is
believed the enemy is only in small
bands around Kimberley, lots of 50 or
so, tho greater part having gone to
Spytfoutein, where firing is believed to
havo been heard   about noon.
From Kaffir sources came a report,
that there are two large Boer laagers
at Oliflint's dam with 150 wagons foi
water supply. The Boers have cut the
existing dam three miles distant, allowing the water to run down toward
their laagers into an old dry dam on
tho farm. This is believed to be the

to shell us into submission. The
bombardment and skirmishing continue with very small results.
"The enemy's sentries drew us out
ou Saturday bv making a show of going away and leaving a big gun apparently in a state of being dismantled.
Our scouts found the enemy hidden iu

AN IMPORTANT SPEECH
Mr. Joseph Chamberlain Outlines Britain's
Foreign Policy���Tribute to
Lord Salisbury.
Loudon, Nov.80.��� Mr. Joseph Chamberlain, Secretary of State for the Colonies, in a speech at a luncheon at
Leicester today, said that ever since
the great split of the Liberal party he
had found himself a mark for slanders
and misrepresentations from ihe
"baser sort of politicians," but, he
added, he had found compensation in
tho generous appreciation of the majority of his countrymen,
Continuing, Mr. Chamberlain said
he was deeply gratified tbat Great
Britain's imeign relations are so satisfactory. Tin country owed a debt of
gratitude to Lord Salisbury for the
great improvement in Great Britain's
position. It was especially gratifying,
be pointed out. to note the friendly
relations existing between the Anglo-
Saxon branches, saying the understanding between the Uuited States and
Great Britain was tbe guarantee of the
peace of the world. This statement
was greeted with cheers.
It was of tho utmost importance,
Mr.   Chamberlain  further  remarked,
that Groat Britain should not rcri.uu
isolated in Europe and her natural alliance was with the great German Empire. They had had difficulties wilh
Germany, hut interests and sentiments were tti9 same, and an understanding between tho Teutonio and
Anglo-Saxon races might do more than
auy combination of armies to preserve
the peaco of the world. The world,
be asserted, was not governed enthely
by interest. Sentiment was one of the
greatest factors.
Referring to the attacks of the foreign press, Mr. Chamberlain said newspapers had not even spared the most
sacred person of the Queen. 'This,"
cintinued the speaker, "has provoked
a natural indignation which may have
serious consequences if our neighbors
do not mend their ways.''
An outburst of cheering greeted
this.
"It was a matter for congratulation," Mr. Chamberlain afterwards asserted, "that the worst of this 'disgraceful attack' did not appear in German papers.''
Dealing with the altitude of foreign
nations, Mr. Chamberlain said :
"I rejoice, and it   is perhaps natural
for I have taken a personal   inleiest in
tho   matter,   in   tbe   friendly   feeling ;
which I bono is   now   permanent   be- i
Iwecn the two great    brunches   of   the
Anglo-Saxon race.   I   hnvo  so many
friends iu the United States, almost
as many as I l^ivc bore, and I conceive
of no greater disaster to the two oocn-1
tries  than to  find   themselves   hostile!
to each other. Yet I remember when I
lirst visited America, my surprise and
astonishment   at   the   evidence   given
me by   statesmen,    politicians   aud in
articles in   the  press  of the constant
suspicion   of   the     objects   of     Great
Britain, constant doubts us to   her in  \
tegfity and of a   general   disfavoralilc
estimate of  our   prospects   und   char-
aoter,
"Onoe, addressing n great meeting
in Philadelphia, 1 ventured to say tbat:
what wo wanted was a new Columbus
to set out from Ameri a, discover the j
United Kingdom and return to Anier- j
lea and tell them something they did ;
not knew of the   strange   character   of
the Inhabitants of those Islands.
"This ill feeling was duo no doubt, ]
to iiiiiny causes, due to the fact that
the United States hud never been ut
war with auy great power but Kng-
land, due to their traditions extend-
Ing over a century, din to a feeling
that the sympathy of Great Britain
was not with them in the Civil war,
and to the general belief that the people of Great Britain would see with
satisfaction any harm thai might befall them. It appeared to me almost
useless to contradict these mistaken
opinions, but what tho assistance of
Statesmen could not  do, was done   by i
the sympathy we wen abb' to give
when the United States found itself
the object of thnt suspicion Which ..lli
no often accompanied om own transne
tious when engaged in a war oi justice against oppression,  a war in favor
of civilization and good government.
Our actiou proved to the Ameiioau
that we are, indeed, one people of lie
|same thoughts and guided by the same
principles. The assurance thut was
given them in the conrse of the Span
ish war will, I believe never be for
gotten and, has placed our relations in
an admirable position. The union,
the alliance, if you please, the understanding between the two great nations
is indeed a guarantee of the peace ol
the world. But thero is something
more which 1 think any far-seeing
English statesman has long desired,
that we should not remain permanently isolated from the continent of
Europe, and I think it must have appeared evident to everybody that tin-
natural alliance J is between ourselves
and the German Empire. We have hud
nur differences, quarrels anil tensions
but tbey all have been about petty mill
tors. These difficulties have beeu gradually removed until now 1 cannot conceive that auy point can arise iu tlie
Immediate future which can bring
ourselves and Germany into antagonism of interests On tho contrary, I
can foresee many things in lhe future
which must cause anxiety to the statesmen of Europe, but iu which mu interests are clearly the same as Germany's, and in which tho understanding of which 1 have spoken in the case
of America, might well extend to Qer-
many and do more^ perhaps than an;
combination of arms to preserve the
peace of the world. A new alliance
between the Teutonic race and tbe
Rreat branches of the Anglo-Saxons,
would," iiiid the secretary, "be potent in influence on the future of the
world. "
The speaker explained he used the
word "alliance" but, he added, "it
mattered little whether they had nn
alliance committed to paper or 'an nn
derstanding,' which existed in tin
n inr's of tho statesmen nnd their ro
spective countries.
"A determination in every case to
look for favorable motives upon the
part of those with whom friendship
was desired would bo of enormous advantage both to tbe nations concerned
and to others.''
ENGLISH PRESS COMMENTS.
London, Dec. 1.���It has been long
since a publio speech has been delivered that has excited so much eoinmuit
us Mr. Chamberlain's of yesterday.
Every Provincial paper, important or
unimportant, has an editorial this
morning discussing the Colonial Secretary's deliverance, the Radical papers
are naturally little pleased. Thev
think England ought to continue the
policy of withholding herself from entangling alliances and they attack Mr.
Chamberlain hotly for the threatening
tone he adopted toward France. They
remind the public that it is only a repetition of the "splash'' he mado in his
speech of May 13 last, when in tbe
same way he incensed Russia, One
journal ironically asks whether the
Foreign Secretary still exists, or
whether the Foreign Office has been
merged in the Colonial Office. (In the
other hand, most of the Conservative
and moderate Libcial organs comment
upon the speech with great approval,
alleging that thero never was n time
when such an understanding was more
essential between nations who arc
naturally allies for poace and civiliza- j
Hon.
The Daily Mail  says:    ' Once   more
Mr. Chamberlain has acted as inter-
prefer for the nation. The new alliance of England, tho United Stales
nud Germany, wiih perhaps Japan
thrown   iu   uml Austria   and Italy   in
the back ground, is something to make
these foul mouthed Parisians shiver. If
they cannot censo theii insults their
Colonies will bo taken from them and
given to Germany and Italy. England
hns no quarrel with the present
French Government, but bow long
will it stand against the maobinations
of Dr. Leyds and the general stuff.

will be glad to hem that its relations
with the United States and Germany
are so cordial and of so oloie a character as to justify Mr.   Chamberlain  In

Montreal, Nov/j:o. ��� An interesting
judgment wus rendered this morning
iu the Court of Review iu the case of
Napoleon Bouhommu vs. Robert Biokerdike, M. P. I1., a well known cattle
exporter of this city. Bonbomme
claimed $1106 dan,ages for loss sustained
by going to Edmonton as an employe
of the trustees of the Trading and
Mining Company, of Canada, Ltd.,
alleged to be then in oonrse of formation. The plaintiff bused his action on
the ground that he wus induced to go
iuto the enterprise on the strength of
Bickerdike's name which appeared on
the prospectus.
Judge Curran in the Superior Court
dismissed the action, holding it not
proved that Biokerdike knew of the
transaction at the time. The Court of
Review reversed the judgment and
held Biokerdike responsible for tbe
amount claimed on the ground that
the prospectus contained erroneous
and false statements which Bickerdike
knew. Sixteen other similar actions

FREE TO OUTSIDERS.
Tbe Province newspaper of Vancouver has joined tbs noble band nf hypocrites who are amazed and pained
io see tbat. Sir diaries Tupper aud
other Conservative leaders arc stumping Manitoba in opposition to the
Greenway Government. Two Ottawa
Ministers.assisted by two Liberal members of Parliament, both from the Atlantic Provinces, have just completed
a series of twenty-odd meetings in the
interest of Mr. Greenway, but that
is nothing; that is all right. There
is a general Provincial election in
Prince Edward Island, and at the
present moment an Ottawa Minister is
in that Proviuce, doing all he can in
support of the Liberal Government,
and actually going so far us to urge
upon the electors tho necessity of the
Local and Dominion Governments
working together. That, too, is all
right. It is wrong only when a Conservative member of tho Federal Parliament presumes to interfere in a Provincial election.
We need not dwell on tbe disgusting
hypocrisy of this; it is bo much on the
surface and so rank that it will speak
for itself. But it may bo remarked
that the time has come when Canadian
publio men aud Canadian newspapers
should realise tbat every Canadian citizen is free to speak bis mind on any
public question iu auy part of the Dominion. If a Nova Scotian has any message for the people of Manitoba, either
in reference to their local politics or
to the broader affairs of the Dominion,
afford to put ou a capable man at Montreal, whose duty it would be to prepare a connected, intelligible, and appropriate service jbnt as that would eat
into their margin for dividends, even
ever so little, it is no'- to be thought

will be commented on favorably in
these columns, and if otherwise we
shall nut have the least hesitancy iu
calling attention to tlie fact." This
statement is interesting to Phoenix no
doubt, but fancy what interest it must
have for the two Governments. Uu
less they step warily and lie
energies to promote the advancement
of Phoenix, it will be bad for them.

"If Tbo Miner liui any brains it
wonld not be no foolish," says the New
Denver paper, The Ledge. We need
net mind the particular bit ol' foolishness to which reference is made ; that
is a little thing; it is tbe implication
that The Miner has no brains anyhow
that hurts. And it makes it worse to
think that The Ledge has so much.
But the good things cf this world
never were equally distributed.

it is His privilege to deliver it.    There j tnllal(.,v   his  hurt   is   slight and may
can be no danger in the freest possible
discussion, if there is any thing to resent in the practice the people themselves will do that, and there is surli-
cient protection against the abuse of
it in the knowledge that inappropriate I
and injudicious interference would be
its own punishment. Tho only dread
in the case is that the Governments
themselves should join in the exercise j
nf undue influence. That, is possible
to them, and because it is Mr. Blake
and Mr. Mackenzie declared agaiust
entangling alliances.
The Vancouver paper thinks to make
a point by nBking how Britisli Columbia electors would like Sir Charles
Tupper to instruct them in the management of their own local affairs. The
point happens to be pointless, for in
this Province the people are not yet
divided on party lines, aud a party
leader would have some difficulty in
shaping a a course lor himself. But if
the conditions were such that party
leaders miglit be Introduced, we should
hope, as we believe, that the electors
of the Province would bo glad to wel-
eome Sir Charles Tupper, Mr. Mills,
Mr. Fostei, Mr. Pateison, or any othei
Federal politician of reputation, who
would raiso political discussious to a
higher level thun tbey attain among

a,; 1 an enjoyable time is expected.
Mr. Prank Taniblyn pi"kr'd some
sweet- pens in bis garden yesterday,
whioh is a record breaker' for this
Horn of the year. Tlie flowers wero
really beautiful,
Thero was a fall of snow in Nelson
yesterday, but the "beautiful" did
not remain on the otherwise uot beautiful thoroughfares. The surrounding
hills are capped with suow.
Tho case of Thurston vs. Tattersall,
Wl ioh was to have beon resumed at
County Court yesterday was postponed
until next session owing to the illness
of Mr. Johnson, of Slocan City, who
is a very important witness.
Kootenay Lndgo, No. 1(1, I. O. O. P.,
has elected tho following officers for
the ensuing term ; John Scoley, noble
grand; J. A. MoRae, vice-grand; J.
R. Rutherford, recording secretary ; A.
H. Clements, fiuancial secretary; A.
G. Shaw, treasurer.
Tho sale of work under the auspices
of the Presbyterian Ladies' Aid dosed
yosterday evening, and proved a great
success. Wednesday' s sales totalled
$31)5, but, yesterday's figures were not
made up, but they will substantially
increase the receipts.
P. Burns & Co., have decided not to
introduce electi ioity as a motive power
in their sansngo factory. They will
await tho advent of gas, and put in a
gas engine. They had contemplated
getting a supply of electricity from the
Bonnington Falls people.
Mr. W, S. Johnson, of Slocan City,
who was taken suddenly ill at the Hotel Hume on Wednesday and removed
to the hospital, was reported somewhat
better yes'erday. His is a case of appendicitis. It has not yet heen decided
whether an operation will be necessary.
A notice is posted in tho Publio
Library calling attention to the fact
tluit the magazines which lie on the
table must not bo considered private
property of those who may read them.
During the mouth several magazines
have been stolen from the reading
room.    This should not be.
There is 11 famine of mutton and
pork in town. For the past couple of
iIhvs not a pound of either was to bo
had in Nelson. Spring cbiokeu is the
Cavori'o substitute, but there is no certificate of age accompany ing the birds.
Then; are those who say that some of
the "chickens" are not of lust spring's
brood.
From 100 to 150 men are still employed grading ou the Kaslo and
Lardo-Duiic.iii road between Argenta
and Howser Lake, but these will
shortly be laid od' for the wiuter.
Most of the grading has been done and
about half the needed ties have been
got out, hut there is no steel as yet, on
the ground.
The Nelson Soda Water Factory is
introducing a new patent screw stopper fnr their bottles, which is mado of
vulcanite. It is claimed that it is superior to any other kind of stopper in
that one turn of the wrist is sufficient
to make it perfectly tight, whilo the
top of it is so formed tbat it oan be
taken h.dd of without any danger whatever of getting out if the buttle should
happen to break.

Editor Miner:
Sir���I notice in one   of the daily papers a resolution which has the idia of
amalgamating   tho "Charitable    Aid 1
Societies."   Has   any ono,   connected:
with this   society, ever  considered   to
whom their help is tno^t urgent?
Granted, this conutry is the only
country in tho world where a man
need never starve if he is willing to
undertake any kind of work that may
bo put beforo him ; but, and a very big
but, this country is very conservative;
and once a man sinks be cannot rise
again to his former position.
One   must   choose   whether   he will
join the laboring  classes,   and so put;
hiuisrlf out of all hopes of work 111 the !
scale  of  life   to   whioh   be has  been i
brought np, or   starve in tho hopes of
getting an opening in whioh ho is pro-'
fioient and only wants   an opportunity
to show it.    The man with   this   proficiency who is   without  interest will
starvo and the one who takes any kind
of "manual labor'' will sink, never to
rise or be recognized in Nelson  "society," be his powers what thev  may.
The question now is to whom remains the most urgent need of help,
uot of money, for most of them would
I not accept it; but of a chance to show
that only adverse circumstances keep
thelu fiom being good citizens.
This is tho conclusion nirived at by
tho writer al'ter a month's experience
of Nelson.    Yours, etc.,

,
ST. ANDRE'WS DAY.
Celel rated   By   the Sons of .Sootin   in
Nelson.
The seoond anmuii rlinuer of tlie St,
Andrew's Society of Nelson, was held-
nt the Hotel l'hnir last night. Alionl
eighty persons sut down to dinner,
which was served np in the best style
of this famous hostelry. Alderman
McKillop, President of the Society, on-
onpied the seat at tho head of the
table, Mayor Neelands being seated
lo tlm left and Alii. Fletcher to the
right. The vice chairs wero occupied
by Mr. George Kydd, Mr. John A.
Gibson, secretary treasurer, and \V. A.
Macdonald, O,. C. There was not a
vacant seat, and that the occasion was
thoroughly enjoyable jh the unanimous
verdict of all. Just a year ago St.
Andrew's Society hold its first annual dinner, aud it was such a success
that it was le&olved to banquet "the
day .md a' wha honor it" on the 80th
Novmnbor of each successivo year.
The tables were tastefully dejoratcd
anil furnished with every delicacy
that good judgment could suggest, the
result being decidedly appetising. In
addition to Piper McQuurriB, Steinir's
orchestra of four pieces was iu attendance, imd furnished an excellent pro-
giiiimiic, in which Scotch airs were
agreeably conspicuous. The third
course was that to which naturally,
most interest attached, for did it not
introduce the Haggis? Headed by the
piper, the bearer of the national dish
marched to the head of the tabblu,
where he deposited his burden in front
of the president. Captain Duncan was
called upon to give the address to the
Hasjgis, which he did iu true Scotch
style. After this amusing but interesting ceremony, the dish, which was
prepared by Mrs. Bannerman, was
again borne aloft, and carried out to
the culinary department, where it was
divided up aud served out.
Before the table was cleared Mr. R.
(J (Jampbell Johnston,attired iu High
land costume, elicited hearty applause
by appearing with the piper, and bearing aloft the British flag. This he inserted in one of the exotics, a prominent position which it bore throughout the evening. Later on the Stars
and Stripes were introduced,and placed
side hy side with "the flag (hatbraved
a thousand years, the battle and the
storm.''
At 11 :30 the chairman called order,
and road tho following telegrams, and
answers thereto:
From Revelstoke: "Thesonsie chiols
o' Revelstoke, kind greeting send to
one and a'.���H. A. Brown, President
St. Andrew's Society.''
Reply : "Tak some yersel mon. The
fun will be fast and furious here to-
ulcht. ��� A. L. McKillop, President."
From Vancouver: "Hero awa,' there
awa' bairns o' the heather this nicht
o' St. Andre banded together.���J.
Johnston, Presidont."
Reply: "It is awfu' weet here the
nicht, but we're banded togither as
banal an' I'm thinking it will be awfu' weet inside before the day dawns.
-A. L. McKillop."
From Rossland : "The Sons o' Scot-
laud iu the big, brawny town o' Ross
land send gieetin' tae britber Scots
in the wee oripple town o' Nelson.
May ye grow up and be big like us,
Jock.--John Ferguson, President."
Reply: "Mn oertes, Jock, ye'ne no
blnte a cook, aye craws best on his ain
midden hoap. We're gae crorse oorsols
the nicht.���A. L, McKillop, President."
From Victoria: "May ye be happy
an' never drink oot o' a dry coppie. ���
H. Dallas Helmcken, President."
Relpy : "Never fear that tbe chiels
in Kootenay will drink oot o' toom
cups. We're preeing oor Haggis noo
an' losh mon it tastes gran'.���A. L.
McKillop."
From Winnipeg: "Trae oronies in
Winnipeg o'er th' Rocky Montuins
hicht wo will send oor tbonkB in
flicht, sue oor spirits will be wi' ye
while we drink oor spirits. S'ye Jock,
Dewar Haggis, an' Bnbby Jock, mak
a gran' mixture. May yer teeth ha'e
a gnid edge the nicht. ��� D. D. MuMil-
lan, President."
Reply: "The storm without might
roir, an' we dinna mind tbe storm a
whistle the nicht.���A. L. McKillop,
President,"
Flora Kamloops: "When friens
meet, herts warm, happy we are, a'
togither. Blitoher may ye be when
ye rise tao gang awa' this nicht.''
From Montreal: "Lot ns tass off onr
stoops, mindin' the friendship that
draws us a' togither."
From Rosslaud : "Sorra I canna be
wicht ye tho nicht. Hope ye hue a
guid time. Dinna lot Jock Ayton lead
the piper sioh a daunce nroon the toon
as he did a year sine.���G. C. Hodge. "
From Rossland: "Regret missing
train. Am with clans here. Guesrs
no,v using our Lyddite shells. Casualties so far, fifty Dewnrs and one Haggis. Send Kruger on.���G. C. Mac-
Tnnstall."
The toast list opened with that of
"The yneen" which was received
wilh the singing of the National Au-
them. Tho toasts "The Presideut of
the United States" and "Tho Governor-General of Canada" wore received with tho song of "He's a Jolly Good
Fellow." The "Army and Navy"
was responded to iu  speech   and  song
by Mr. T. G. Prooter,   aided   by   Mr.
(Jampbell,  "The Dny and a' wha honor
it," was   done   ample   justice   to by I
President  McKillop.   "The  Land  o'

THE WORLD'S PEACE
Continued from First Pago.
let us sny, tho understanding is a natural
one, and would suicly giatify their
feelings ns much as it would add to
their Bafetj against external dangers,"
Tho Daily Chronicle says: "Mr.
Chamberlain's enthusiasm, like his
antagonism, suffers from over-emphasis. Alliances are almost out of the
question. His remarks regarding the
United States, however, iu'u distinctly
happy. Put the German public is iu
no mood for such au alliance, and Mr.
Chamberlain's uncalled for and nn-l
statesmanlike reference to Fiance is
reprehensible."
The   Daily  Telegraph   says:   "The'
future nmy or may   not see a   realization of this new triple alliance, which
would sway the destinies of the world. \
It is   sufficient  fox   the   present  thnt
the understanding between   thu   Gov-'
criiiucnt of Great Britain,  tho  United '
States and Germany is more  intimate
and morn likely to be than ever before. '
"Friendship with America, cordial
relations with Germany, tho recoil-
quest of the Soudan, and the approaching federation of South Africa under
the Britisli flag, theso are the results by
which the Salisbury cabinet has rendered as splendid a service to the Empire as almost any Government of tho
Century."
The Daily News commenting in the
same vein as the Daily Chronicle says:
"Obviously Mr. Chamberlain is very
much gratified over his conversation
with Emperor Wiliam, and some allowance for this personal factor should
be made in interpreting his speech.
However, the substance of what he had
to say is clear and satisfactory and
derives real significance from his interview with the Emperor. But thero
is a strain of exaggeration aud effusiveness, which will defeat its object
by raising the price of German friendliness. " Complaining of the tone
Mr. Chamberlain adopted toward
France, the Daily News says: "If
offensive cartoons are to be made political issues, we shall soon have onr
hands full.''
