impossible to bold the whole summit, General MacDonald constructed a
strong works across the oentre which
were held by the Seaforth Highlaud-

the Ninth Lancers patrolled the left

Things wont on quietly until Wednesday when the Boers advanced along
tbe ridge within i'OO yards, mounting
two mountain seven-pounders, which
were invi��ible from the plain. They
also hold a smaller drift three miles to
the west. On receipt of this uews

The next morning it was found thnt
tbe Boers had fled from the lower

Large Rewards to Engineers
For Excellent Work.
Loudon, Feb. 10.��� (3 p: m. j���General Bnller is once more f-outli of the Tugela River aud General MooDounld is
hack at the Modder Hi ver. yet today's
news bv no means cnoses tbe acute
disappointment attendant on the failure to relieve Ladysmith. This eiiu be
attributed tn three ennses.
First.���There is a strong belief tbat
General Buller's but attempt was only
a demonstration on n large scale.
becond.���The wiser critic bad warn
*ert*_he pulilic not to expect the immediate relief of General White.
Third.���The Nation has settled
down to the realization that tbe war
will laet a long time, and they are not
���wayed-aa ar first by minor reverses
and viotories. The second and third
reason* are self-explaining.
Tbe first requires considerable elucidation in fnvor of the opinion held by
Mr Spencer Wilkinson, the military
oritio of The Morning Post, that General Bnller did not intend immediately
pushing on to Ladysmith. There iH
now overwhelming evidence to show
that Field Marshall Lord RohertH ordered sytematic activity ou tbe port
of all tbe forces. Ou this basiB, Gen-
eral Buller's movement mny only be a
repetition of Generals MacDonald's
and French's recoiiiiuissance.
Mr. A. J. Balfour's stateninnt about
waiting tbe completion of plans is an
othor stinug reason for belcving that
General Buller nevor intended to mnke
the main ndvanoe via Vnal Kraut z,
but was noting under tho orders of
Lord Roberts. It is also curioos Ihat
the news of General Buller's regiment
flrst came from the Boer Head l.nnger,
near Lady-smith, and that the British
correspondents were freely allowed
to send dispatches before anything
from General Buller wns published.

Our force ut Voal Kraut?, ontreuched
itself as well ns possible, but nevertheless continued to lose men and no advance was made. But the Boer artillery fired incessantly, and ns Wednesday proceedad, it was ihcrense.-tlv apparent tbat although tbe infantry
might, hy' u very determined assault,
force its way through the sentre-of* the
Boer position,it would become impossible during the subsequent operations
to maintain the seourity of the lines
of communication, and tbe evacuation
ih decided upon. The retirement commenced nt B o'clock at nigbt, the pontoon bridge being removed after General Hillyurd's force hud crossed this
morning. The whole force retired beyond range of the B-iei Runs, which
continued shelling."

semitu  announced   that
nif.it wns acting along these lines,
and was corresponding with the
Dominion Government on the matter
and thnl of Ohinese Capitulation tax.
This brought Martin to his feet nob
be accused the Government Of parting
fiom a policy that it had decided ��s
hest when be was a member of it. The
Government Inst year declared that tlie
Nuthl act would not be effectual tor
tin* purposes described. Now it made
a dlstinot change of policy, nnd was
p.epared to accept the views of the Do
iniiiioL to put in force the Nntal act.
The Finance Minister classed Martin's speech as clap trap uud ahsuni.
lib challeugeii his contention that the
Government had departed from thi*
position it 'md taken upon this ques
tion. Taking np .Martin's reference
that the Province should fight the Do.
million over the disallowed anti Chinese and Japanese^ legislation, jnnt us
Manitoba did over the Northern Paul-
tin Knilway entry matter, Cotton said:
"1 think the opinion we must have,
of the gentleman's acts and career in
Manitoba can be formed by his retirement from that scene."
Martin did not catch the reference
uml had ('iitliiu repent it. Cotton was
proceeding with his speech when Martin shouted something nbout cowardly
tnctics, uud snid Cotton was afraid to
repent the statement. The Finnnce
Minister retorted thut he was afraid
of nothing,and repeated the statement
Martin declared it wus tho most contemptible statement made on the floor
of the House. The Sneaker called
Martin to order, and rhe hitter's interruptions became so numerous tbat the
Speaker said.be would have to nuine
him if he did not, cease. Cotton said
he hud not mdulged in personalities,
whercnpnii Martin said be hud un hesitation to go back to Manitoba at any
tune, bnt lhe Finance Minister dared
not go bank to Colorado.
Amid uproar, Cotton asked who wsh
iictiug in n cowardly fashion uow.
Martin said :
"I have no creditors waiting me in
Manitoba; 1 dofniudad nobody." The
Speaker said thnt if Martin did not
keop order he must name him. Cotton
then   niiule bis speech.
On conclusion, Clifford, who "its
next ro Martin, moved an amemlmeul
which gave Mnrtin nn opportunity to
mnke a snnsiitionul attack on Coltou
ns to his actions in Uolnrado. He took
up Cotton's remarks us to his (Martin's) leaving Munitobu ; snid he wus

First came tin- Vint Eagle and Centre
���Star, then the Ball Mines, ami now
the Le Rni. The Payne closed down
many months ago. These are by all
odds the largest mines In the Koote-
nays, and in a few days the last of
them will cease production work. If
the Legislature had kept its hands off,
there would Imve l,e,-u no interruption: the mines would continue to
work full-hand,-d.and prosperity would
reign throughout the entire region,
Men of little minds nn- influenced by
a phrase, a orv. The Eight*Honr
law here is just and right, because it
is the standard day in other mininp
legions. Especially is tbe example of
tho Australasian mines cited in support
ot* the action of our Legislature. It is
true they have an eight-hour day in
ihose Colonies, bnt it wns not brought
about by hard and fast legislation, as
in this Province, it was a matter of
mutual agreement between the owners
and the miners, and in making it no
one dreamed of the folly  of tacking on
�� provision that a miner must  not
work longer hours. He is left free to
do as he pleHses. He can work ten
liouis, nr twelve hours, or lift-en
hours, if desirous of doing so and be
oan find any one to employ bim. The
regulation day is eight, but bv agreement the working day may be anything. The liberty of the subject i��
not taken from him. A reasonable
standard wage for the standard flay is
also matter of agieeiuent. In Hritish
Columbia the miner is deprived of the
ngbt to work longer than eight hairs,
and the manner of the legislation invited him to strike I'm the old pay for
t**n honrs.
It was not to he expected that the
mine owners could submit to these restrictions and exactions. For months
iiii-y have struggled on in tbe hope
that reason wonld prevail and they
woold have justice nt last, but so far
there is no  sign   of  either.    There   is
Cnptain Bobadil's method   of defea'-
Ing an army has never been   improved
upon.    Yet if   The Miner  were  Field
Marshall,   in   command of the  South
African   forces,    it would   proceed   on
different lines, it would first strengthen Methnen, and  at the same time order   Kelly.   Gatacre,   and   French   to
unite.    This done, Methnen would   be
told to   advance   in   the   direction   of
Bloorafontein and cut hi�� way through
at  any  cost.    It would  be   a  itittUh
bit of   work,   and   would   cost  some
live.; but   better   -i.COo   casualties   ill
one decisive -ngagement   than 4,000 in
half n dozen, with nothing substantial
achieved.    The    other  column   would
way,   nnd
after dispersing  or  taking  prisoners
Cronje's army tho two  united, or Separately, should make for the   Drakens-
berg on   forced   marches.    If  Joubert
took the  alarm   und   started   for  Pie-
totia, he should be   headed off;   if   he
took up 11 position in the   Drakensbeig
he would find   himself in a very  bad
box, with Methnen hammering bim in
front and   Buller ismuding hiin in the
rear.    After that, matters might safely
be left to take care of themselves.

General   Sherman   that wur   is   hell.
Some one bus dug np out of oue of  his
works, as appropriate  to the present,
the following:   "When I tell you that
war is the foundation nf all tbe arts, I
meuu also that it  is  the foundation of
all the high   virtues  aud faculties of
men.    It is verv   strange to me to dis- |
cover this and very dreadful, but I saw
it to be an undeniable   fact.    .    .    .
1 found, in brief, that all great nations
learnt their tiutb of word and strength
of   thought   in   wai, that  they  were
nonrisbed in war and wasted by peace,
tnngbt by war and deceived  by peace,
trained by war and betrayed by peuce;
in a word, that they were bom in war

It was quite expected that the local
organ hen- ol the Montana l-'edeiation of
Labor would attempt tn break thn force
of the announcement regarding the
Hall Mines by making a coarse attack
on the management. That is so entirely in ki-epiug with its character
that any other course' would have es-
ci ed surprise. It requires a good deal
of assurance on the part of an outsider
who is not an expert tn pass judgment
on the business method! of a Con_ern
of which be'ean know absolutely nothing, but the editor of the organ is
,-,|UBl to Ihe occasion.

Loudon Feb. 10.���There exists today
what praotioally amounts to a defensive and offensive alliance between
(4renr Britain and Portugal. For th��
past week and longer there has heen
circulating through the English pres��,
irrespective of party lines, a nervous
eppiebensioan ot European opposition
aud still more nervous appreciation of
tlie fact that (jreat Britain at the present moment is unable to fare u with
honor to herself. Constant editorials
in most nnsensationnl papers bave almost developed this phase of animation into u national nightmare. In
the first place much of the press clamor for a tieniendi.il- army in order to
meet unforeseen emergencies is originally iunpited with a view tr. compelling Parliament to pas, quickly any
financial measures proposed by tbe
Government, and make the same popular with ilm people, who through additional taxation may lie called upon to
add their mites toward.- the stnpendous
plans uow pending to place the Briti.ih
Empire uimn a military eminence so
supreme, ns to be beyond tbe fear of
Russia's activity in China and Persia, aud French and German antagonism are freely paraded before the nation as uu incentive to be up and arming, even if it needs to be to tbe point
of pelting into operation the Militia
Ballot Act, which is almost -ynono-
nions with conscription. Yet the accounts cf anti-British activity all the
world over, as disbed up for British
readers, are not causing the Foreign
Unlet* nuy serious anxiety and they do
not include any icul reason for the
tremendous military nativity, which
is a determination to convince Portugal that it is advisable tor her to meet
Great Britain's demands regarding tin-
ports essentinl for carrying on the
Boer wur, namely Delagoa Bay und
Biru, und at the sara,- tunc, having secured Portugal', assent to every -proposition mnde. to he in a position to
support her jagainst united European
oppression. No word of this ia hinted
nt here, but the reporter of the Associated Press learn, that pressure is being
brought to lieai upon Portugal by continental .'powers to prevent her from I Carnival at Rossland thi, week, prob
giving aid to the British.
Portiiguls Minister here. Senor Pinto de Several, is almost as much an
Englishman as Portugese. He la only
too willing to do everything beyond
the bounds of neutrality to help, if
Great Britain will protect Portugal.
Lord Salisbury is determined that
this shall be done, nud is counting
on the 0O-operatlOn of his countrymen
tn put the nation' on a footing to defy
European oppression. H,- has this week
taken definite measure- regarding the
aforementioned ports that can only be
described as daring. Portugal, bending
to the medium of coercion nnd convinced that Great   Britain   is! able; to
Nelson Hookey Team Loses By a Score
of Six to One.
The Rossland Victorias proved too
much for the Nelson hockey team lust
night, a ratlin inn-resting game re*
snltiug in a vi.-tory for thu visitors hy
six goal- t.. one. The visitors proved
to be a very fast lot. and although
oramped on a much smaller rink than
they an- used to. got in some effective
team piny tbat produced goals. The
two most glaring faults of tbe Nelson
team wen- the constant bunching of
the forward i and their utter inability
to shoot. Almost every time tbe pock
was worked into the enemy's territory
the bit of brilliant work would termi-
nine in n poor shot that gave the puck
to the opposing defence. But be thut
as It may, the fact remains that tbe
local boys weie outplayed, and tho fact
that there has been ice in Kosslanl for
some time was demonstrated in the superior condition of the visitors. The
Mist half was very much in Rossland*s
fnvar, the score at tho end of it being
live to none against Nelson. The .second half, however, produced some excitement, for the hoi.ie team struck a
livelier pace and held the visitors
down well. There was a semblance of
team play among the local forwards,
bnt the luck nf abooting powers rendered some pretty rushes useless, lu
this half each team scored once.
The Victoria defence is a very strong
one, O'Brien being especially effective, while the forwards aie fast, and
on a huge rink would no doubt bold
their positions well. Under the close
checking Tom Doucau was not as conspicuous as usual, hut he played a tine
gume. Vi. Duncan was Btrong on tbe
defence, and Neelands mnde Bonie
pretty stops.
The match was over sn hour late in
starting, which did not particularly
please those who went to the rink to
skate when it was finished. The teams

risking his array, but short of that is
to give the Boers as much to do in Natal as he can. His attack of the past
we.-k was hardly -Aided out with the
push that marks a mau resolved to
win or bo broken. In any case it is
00 easy task to cross a river in order
to pierce tbe front of an enemy posted
beyond it. Modern weapons favor
au attack which envelopes a flank, but
not an attack which tries to break tbe
centre of an army.
The new plan involves prompt and
successful offensive operation* ngninst
the Free State forces iu the west���a
series of crushing blows. Any failure
in their execution would leave tin-
hold on Ladysmith which nothing
but disaster in the west and certainty
of more to follow, will make them let
gj. But Lord Roberts is a strong mau
With a big heart, a resolute will and
a clear head. His presence with n
British army has a maguetic effect,
and when be moves be probably will
make the Boers move. He hns reinforced Methuen with n cuvalry brigado
nnd horse artillery, nnd there is probably nn infantry division to follow.
Looking at General Buller's action by
itself tbe impression it makes, recalls
General McClcnnan, who though cautious and knowing how to preserve his
army, hardly ever displayed the innate power to run risks, and the self
reliance of a great commander.
To all .appearances, Genernl Buller
has given up his third attempt before
his attack was fully developed. A telegram received this evening from Lorenzo Marquez speaks of a sortie irom
Ladysmith on the night of Thursday
or Friday. Such an attempt of General
White to cat his way out us was probable, and may succeed, although tho
nature of modern weapons is against
him and there would be heavy loss
nnd many stragglers would be captured. The likelihood of General White
trying to fight his way out would explain the reticence of the War Office.
It would also explain the demonstration from Chieveley of which we bave
heaid only^throogh a Boer telegram.
"No decided opinion on tbe operations
of the pas;t week can he pronouncpd

Editor Miner:
Sir���In nn editorial in the late issue
of The Tribune it is stated that the
Ymir mine is being worked by a crew
of imported miners, and that Captain
Forrester 'isitcd the mine for the purpose of securing volunteers for sevrlce
in ihn Transvaal, and found but one
was prepared to serve. From
these false premises the writer proceeds to moralize on the danger iu
peopling a Province with sm-b an element.
We desire to state emphatically thnt
those assertions are wholly false and
without  the  slightest   Foundation   in
fact, and cast uncalled for reflections
on nearly 100 loyal British subjects.
To tho best of iiiii knowledge ami belief, there is nol oue miner on the
property who was imported by the
company, or at their instigation. A
careful census of thi employees, taken
on tin--.'ml of February, resulted as

The assertion tbal tne Ymir is an

Grnnd Forks, B. O , Feb. 10.���A
sensational shooting affray ocomred in
the Windsor Hotel tonight. Morris
O'Connor, while iu a drunken frenzy,
wounded his brother Pal. Miss Maggie O'Connor, a sister, is suffering
from a scalp wound supposed to have
lieen inflicted with the butt' end of a
revolver. Her injuries nre not serious.
Two bullets tore through the frontal
lionn ol Pat's skull. At this writing
the victim has not loit consciousness.
His recovery is likely. According to
the police, Morris hud been drinking
heavily this afternoon. Before taking a room at the Windsor tonight, he
created a disturbance, and his mother
and sister attempted to qniet him before sending for the police. When
Chief of Police Sheads and Constable
Mills arrived, tbe frenzied man stood
at the top of the stairs brandishing a
revolver. O'Connor, on perceiving
them, tired several shots, but missed.
Tho officers replied with a fusilade,
but none of I hn shots took effect. Pat
O'Connor, who bad been sninnnmed,
rushed upstairs to act as peace maker,
only to be shot down. 'Miss O'Con-
ner, it is supposed, was subsequently
Htruck with a revolver in the hands of
her infuriated brother. After a further
exchange of shots with the police,
Morris O'Connor walked downstairs
and surrendered. He is now in custody. "Gave up because my revolver
is empty," be observed to the chief as
In. handed tbe weapon to him. The
shooting attracted a big crowd, aud
created no little excitement. While
the shooting was in progress, a Are,
whose origin is unknown, broke ont in
n he-Loom on tie ,-uine floor as that no
enpied by the desperate man. The
fire brigade was called out, but no
damage wns done.
