< HEAVY LOSSES
Boers Inflict Severe Defeat
on the British and Kill
Four Officers.
In Other Engagements British Win and Kill a Boer
General.
I.iiiiilnii, Doc. 14.���Lord Kitclienor
reports that after severe fighting at
Nooltgedaoht, General Clement's force
WM compelled to retire by Command-
imt Delurey with a force of 3,'iOU
men. Pour Hritish officers were killed. The other casualties were not
reported. Lord Kitchener's nllieial
despatch to the War Office is a follows:
"Pretoria, Dec. 13.���Clement's force
at Nooitgedacht on the Magaliesburg,
was attacked at ilawn today by Bel-
aroy rc-iiifureoil by Beyer's commando
from Warnibth, making a force estimated at 'J,soo men. Though the first
attack was repulsed the Boers managed to get on top of the Magalies-
luig, whieh wus held by four companies of the Northumberland Fusiliers,
and were thus able to command Clement's eainp. lie retired to Ilekpourt
and took up a position on a bill iu
the centre of the valley. Tbe causnl-
ties have not been completely reported
hut the lighting was very severe ami I
deeply regret that Colonel Legge, of
the '.'Otli Hussars, ami Captains Mac-
llejaii. Murdoch and Atkins were killed.    Iic-iiil-rccmonts have left here."
Lord Kitchener also reports that the
Boers made an attack and were repulsed at Lyehenburg ami that General l.ettniiuer was killed. Attacks upon Bethlehem and Vrede were also repulsed,tho Boers basing ten killed and
fourteen wounded. Vryheid waa at-
tucked December 11.
Lorenzo Marques, Dec. 11.��� The
British troops at Koomatipoort arc
Standing to arms in the expectation of
an attack by the Boer forces of l,.riO0,
who are in that viciuity. It is believed to bo tbe intention of this force
tu make a dash upon the town. The
situation is regarded as serious.
TO THE FRONT
Kitchener  Evidently Getting
Reinforcements Refused
Roberts.
London, Dec. 14.���Orders were is-
s��cd at Aldorshot, Malta and other
military centres this morning to dis-
Patch all the available mounted infinitely to .Siiutii Africa.
Condon, Dec. 14.���Tlio scenes at the
��8r Olliee today recall those witnessed In the early stages of the war. A
oustant stream of excited people flll-
M the lobbies, all seeking details of
the disaster. Tho absence of the
names of any of tha ollieers of the
Northumberland Fusiliers iu General
Kitchener's dispatch leads to tho fore-
hinliiig that the four companies of the
'hsillers mentioned are in the bands
��f Urn Hoers. The officials of tho War
Oflice evidently expect a heavy casualty list, but they are hopeful, from the
���llct that the dipateh does not mention the capture of the Northumber-
LmtlH, that sueh a great ^catastrophe
''as been escaped.
London, Doc. 14.���The Cape Town
correspondent of The Daily Mail reports the arrest at Worcester, Cape
Colony, of Harold Ilarringale, alleged
'o he an American, on the charge of
fomenting an Afrikander rebellion.
I'he arrest has mado a great sensation and ��� startling disclosures aro
promised,
New York, Dec. 14.��� Dowel's rc-
"iiukable adroitness In eluding pursuit draws admiring trlbuto from a
British ollicer, who wbh captured by
him at Iteildosrbnrg last sprln?, says
"he Tribune's London Correspondent.
Ho describes the Boor leader as :\ taciturn and grim geucral, deeply   relig
ious, with a warm heart, only to be
touched by human suffering. The
Hritish prisoners were treated by
him with much consideration and
they were greatly impressed with his
dignity and ability. As for his burghers they fairly worshipped him,
and ^were ready to follow him anywhere. This British officer regarda
Dewet as the greatest guerilla leader
ever known and explains his success
on the theory that there are no traitors in hia camp,and that his men have
abaolute faith in him.
Standerton, Dec. 14.���Louis Botha
is reported to] be twenty miles from
here with 1,500 men and one gun.
He has called a meeting of the Burghers for Saturday.
Lorenzo Marques, Dec. 14.���A force
of 1_() infantry,a squadron of cavalry,
and two guns were dispnt-hed to the
frontier this morning.
New York, Dec. 14.���A dispatch to
The Herald from Vienna says: In
well informed circles in this city the
people nre inclined to give credence to
private dispatches from London to the
effect that the conclusion of peace in
South Africa is much nearer than the
Boer reports wonld lead people to believe. It is regarded as quite possible
the ex-presideut will draw proper
conclusions from the course of events
in South Africa and the experiences
he has had in Europe. This would
in no way be a humiliation for him.
Reports have also been received to the
effect that Kruger is trying to arrange an interview with Lord Salisbury. In view of the moderation of
Mr. Chamberlain's latest speech, it is
not considered impossible that such a
meeting sliould take place.
COST OP  THE WAR.
Debate in tlie House of Commons Regarding Baying  the Bills.
London, Dec. 14.���During the second reading of the war loan bill, Sir
Win. Vernon Harcourt today lengthily criticized the Government's financial makeshifts. He said the Ministers
would have strenuous support in
making the Transvaal share the cost
of the war, but the gold mines were
the only soruce of revenue and the attitude of the mine owners and capitalists was well known. If the Government wished to obtain anything
from the Tranvaal toward the cost of
the war, it would have to face the
"Kaffir Circus" In South Africa and
London and it would require all the
courage of the Chancellor of the Exchequer and the Colonial Secretary
and all the integrity of 1'arllnment to
cope with the matter. Mr. Timothy
Ilealy, Irish Nationalist, asked how
much of the new loan was to be float-
ad in Wall Street. He added: "Where
we have the unscrupulouslty of Wall
Street on top of us we shall pay dearly for the small sum saved the country in discount. The whole coBt of
the war should be plnced on the
Transvaal,"
Sir William V. Harcourt contended
that judging from the present prospects, the cost of British rule in the
Transvaal and Orange River Colony
would be far greater than Hoer rule
has been. He estimated that Oeneral
Baden-Fowell's police would cost
i ��� 1.1 ii ii i, i ii ii i a year, a Bum equal to the
last Transvaal budget. Sir Michael
Hicks-Beach said thut possibly thu
new Colonies could not bear any part
of the cost of the war for a year or
two after the war ended but he had
in mind the future derclopment of the
Transvaal's vast wealth and had
made the calling in of the various
items to enable the Government to
bear tho part which might be Imposed
on the Transvaal. In any erent no
unreasonable demand would bo made.
Without expressing a final opinion he
thought that direct taxation of the
profits of mines was a question deserving the most careful consideration. Mr. Broderlck, Secretary of
State for War, announced that the policy of tho War Oflice was not to give
commands to some of these who had
not succeeded with commands In the
Held. The supplementary wnr loan
and appropriation bills were then
passed to a second reading.
HKALY GROWS FACETIOUS.
London, Dec. 1.���Mr. Powell William, the former Municipal Secretary
of the War Office, answering a question in the House of Commons today,
said that 183,400 horses and mules
had been landed In South Africa during the war. Mr. Timothy M.
Ilealy's Interruption as to the number
of iibbcs who had been sent to South
Africa was not answered.

States and Nicaragua

English Press Views Amerl
can  Senate's Action
With Alarm.
London, Dec. 14.���In tho House of
Commons today Mr. Henry Norman,
Liberal member for South Wolverhampton, will ask a series of questions with view of extracting the
views of Government on the Nicara-
guan canal and cognate waters.
The adoption by the United States
Senate of the Davis amendment to the
Hay-Pauneefote treaty yesterday is
evidently regarded as far too weighty
a matter for hurried comment by the
London morning journals. Accordingly The Times and most of the other papers will postpone until tomorrow their editorial treatment of the
question in its present phase. The
Daily Chronicle, however, publishes
a short note, in which '.t says: "The
news is very serious indeed. It means
in a word that tho jingoes und An-
glo-phobes of the United States Senate
have triumphed and we are back again
where wo wero at the timo of the
Venezuela imbroglio and President
Cleveland's insolent and provocative
speech. The better teeling manifested during the Spanish-American war
has beeu shaken by pro-Boer eym-
pathy and it is now swamped by Senators. Tho Americans intend to fortify the canal in spite of the treaty
engagement to the contrary. We cannot possibly stand by and allow the
Claytou-Bulwcr treaty to be thus imperiously set aside. The good relations between the two countries must
of necessity be gravely menaced. This
is the outcome of Mr. McKinley's reelection. Worse could have hardly
happened If Mr. Bryan had been returned."
London, Dec. 14.���There Is a noticeable absence of comment in the afternoon papers today on the action taken
by tbo United States Senate regarding the Nicaragua Canal. The St.
James Gazette takes the occasion to
lecture "Tho Jingo Senate," which,
it says, "has again roughly rebuffed
the President and affronted the gen-
croBity of Groat Britain." The St.
James Gazette further declares that
the action of the Senate in "ordaining that one party shall keep its advantages but that the other shall not
be safeguarded ia imprudent and if it
persists in its* Ignorant and selfish
course Great Britain must fnll back
on her rights under the Clayton-Bul-
wor treaty. Thereby she Is entitled
to refuse permiaaion to the United
States to build the canal." TheJPall
Mall Gazotte^says: "British consent
to tho amendment Is impossible.
Everything for nothing Ib not a working principle."
FROM    THE CAPITAL.

Nurses, En Route Home.
Ottawa, Dec. 14.���Fire this morning did 8:1,500 damage at EarnscIIITe,

Oovernment authorities deny the
truth of the Bpcclal London despatch
In a Montreal papor yesterday, and
forwarded to British Columbia by the
Associated Press last night that the
Elder-Dempster S. S. Co., Is negotiating ith the Government rogarding a
fast Atlantic steamship line.
The military authorities know nothing about the reported Intention of
('ulnu'il Steele, commanding Struth-
cna's Horse, to return to South Africa
after bringi.ig his force home.
MARK HANNA'S  ORATION.
Washington,    I).   C,   Dec. 14.���For
nearly three hours today   Mr.    Ilnniia
ul Ohio addressed the Senate upon tin-
pending ship subsidy bill. While he
has spoken heretofore on tho lloor of
the Senate his effort today was really
bis first formal speech to the body
since he became a member of it. Since
coming to the Senate Mr. Ilanna has
devoted much time and labor to the
preparation of tho Bhip subsidy bill
and, as he is regarded by hia colleagues as one of the best informed ol
the public men on tho question, his
speech was given unusually close attention.
. ONTARIO MINES.

Months.
Toronto, Dec. 14.��� Tbe report of the
Provincial Bureau of Mines, just issued, shows that gold mining did not

A QUESTION OF SERMONS.
Hamilton, Ont., Dec. 11���A conference of working men, called by Rev.
Mr. Gilmour, was held In the lecture
hall of the St. James St. Baptist
Church, Inst evening. Questions regarding the non-attendance of woik-
ingmen at church were discussed. It
was tbo opinion that the gospel was
all right and that the church had a
message for workingmen. but it wus
stated that the churches were not
reaching the workingmen because
the sermons were not suitable, not being for that class. The remedy proposed was to make the sermons more
simple and practicable.

Chicago, Doc. 14.���The Times Herald says, in its account of the MeGov-
ern-Gans fight: "In a bout heavily
scented with crookedness, Terry Mc-
Govern became lightweight champion
of the world. Referee Silcr admitted
that the tight hnd a bad look. He did
not soo a blow that .should have put
Gans into a stage of groggineas in

the wenkest ho bad ever seen from n
man of his known    hitting   ability."

NOT MUCH IN IT.
Montreal, Dec. 14.���Principal Peterson and other oflicials of McOlt! University are much Incensed at the Importance given by some of the Montreal city press to tho Httlo disputo

CHINA NOW
READY TO ACT
Power Given Representatives
to Treat With the
Ministers.
Great Britain's Delay in Sign
ing Joint Note Causes
Surprise.
Pekin, Dec. 14.���Ll Hung Chang
and Prince Ching have sent an official
notification to the Ministers that they
have received the promised documents
authorizing them to act in behalf of
China in the peace negotiations and
announcing that they ure ready to
proceed so soon as the ministers desire.
The fact that Sir Ernest Mason
Satow, the British Minister to China,
has not yet received authority from
liis Government to sign tlie joint note
causes astonishment bore, as it is felt
that all the other powers having
agreed there cannot be anything in
tlie joint note to cause Great Britain
to object sufficiently to make her refuse to sign. Mr. Conger says he believes China will immediately accept
the terms imposed and that she has in
her power to comply with the majority of them before spring, while the
others can wait. On account of the
frost neither the court will be able to
return to Pekin, nor the troops be
uble to leave till April when, if the
peace conditions shall be completed
with, it is believed all the Allied
forces except tbo legation guards, not
to exceed a hundred men for each
power, will leave Pekin and remain
until the fall on the coast between
Taku and Shanghai. For if China
cannot behave ua a civilized power
with military compulsion it would be
necessary to   dismember the   Empire.
Col. Tullock reports the discovery
of the body of the man who gave the
British information regarding the
hidden treasure. He has been decapitated. The British have not yet reported tho discovery of the treasure,
but their return is expected tomorrow.
London, Dec. 14.��� Dr. Morrison
wiring to The Times frum Pekin,
Tuesday, says: "The general opinion is that China will willingly ac
cede to the terms of the collective
notes and trusting to dissensions
among the Powers, will hope that
time will give her an opportunity lo
evade its conditions.
London, Dec. 14.���The Times, commenting upon a despatch from its
New York correspondent, who alleges
that the American public is not able
to form a clear idea of the actual state
of affairs in Pekin, und who gives a
report that there are stiit some differences between Washington and Iierlin
says: "New York is not in a worse
ease than the public everywhere else.
Whether tho consciousness that this
perplexity is in a great measure due
to the character of the telegraphic
information coutinually emanating
from Washington, Is a cause of pride
or dissatisfaction to the Americans,
wc are'not at present in u position to
surmise." Tho Morning Post publishes n dispatch from I'ekln, dated
December 1~, which seems in show
that there is still u considerable divergence of views among Hie representatives of the powers. The correspondent says: "M. Piojum, French
Minister, is moat strenuous In de
mantling the punishment of the guilty
officials."
PROGRESS OF PEACE.
Berlin, Dec. 14.���A private despatch
from Count Von Waldersee says the
negotiations for pence with China are
seriously underway, the initial obtta-
cles having boen overcome and full
accord existing between tbe Ministers of the Powers at Pekin. The
Chinese plenipotentiaries, the despatch says, find no further difficulty
In communicating with the cuurt, direct telegraphic connection now existing between i'ekln   and Sian Fu,   via
shnnghni.   Only live days Is required
from Pekin to   Sian   Su and return.
COMING IN BUNCHES.
Manila, Dee. 14.���From Hollo it Is
unolllciolly   reported   that   the insurgents   lu   that part of tho   Island   of
Fanny are swearing allegiance at the
rate of a thousand a day. The arrest
of many prominent insurgents started
Hie movement which seems to become
universal at Jaro Molo, Maudurrido

A  BOLD ATTEMPT.
Alleged Counterfeiter Makes n Bold
Break for Freedom.
Spokune. Dec. 14.���During nn examination in progress in the rooms of
L'nited States Commissioner Marshall
yesterday afternoon Edward Hansen,
an alleged counterfeiter, the subject
of examination, calmly rose and left
tlie building. His absence was not
discovered until he bad been gone
from tbe room some time, and be
was captured two blocks away after a
chase and after being made a mark
for bullets by two ollieers. lie surrendered and was returned to the court
room in the Auditorium building to
be sent to the county jail under $3,000
blinds, liis case will come up in the
superior court.
The escape of the prisoner from the
commissioner's otlice will go on record as one of the coolest pieces of business with which a criminal has been
connected in this city. The man was
compelled to pass -0 persons before
reaching the door^of the commissioner's office, and how he escapod unseen
is a question. When tho case opened
he was given a place in the corner of
the room farthest from the door of
the room. Tho room was well filled
with witnesses and officers, fully
hnlf of thoso present knowing the
ninn as the prisoner.
Hansen left the room at the close of
tho exaininaton, and after it was
known that he was to be held. The
close of the questioning of witnesses
was followed by a general movement
of the people in tlie room and at this
time Hansen must have taken advantage nf the confusion to escape. He
left the room and went down the rear
stairway into Main Avenue. He then
struck rapidly westward. At about
the time be loft tho building United
States Marshal Ide, who had direct
charge of thu prisoner, noticed his
absence from his seat. The marshal
and Ollicer Hindtnun of the local police force tonk up tho trail ot the prisoner at once. As thoy emerged from
the building Hansen was disappear
ing over the brow of the hill leading
toward the Monroe Street bridge. He
was running rapidly.
Tho ollieers gave chase, and when
thoy came to the hill shot at HnnBen.
Tlie mnn, who is !i0 years old, realizing that ho eould not escape by running and could not get out of the valley without being captured, stopped,
lu making the capture tho officers
wore hindered by a number of people
on the Monroe Street bridge, who
yelled ein'iiurageineiit to Hansen and
derision at bis pursuers. "Had they
carried their enthusiasm further,"
said Mr. Ide last evening, "there
would have been more arrests. They
gave us no serious hindrance. "
II ii ii sc n was caught Saturday In a
shanty whine be lived, and was employed as a bridge tender for the
Great Northern west of this city. He
was arrested for stealing a bicycle
and charged witli grand larceny. Latum search of his cabin and vicinity
was made and a number of counterfeiter's tools were discovered. Since
then the ollieers have made further
searches and have found complete
sets of molds for making quarters,
half miliars.dollars and Sf, gold pieces.
A letter the mail carried when arrested treated of negotiations that
were In progress concerning the purchase of gold and silver for pluting
and uf metal for use in making counterfeit coin. A search of the premises of Hansen Monday revealed a suit
uf clothes such as ure given discharged prisoners when they leave the state
prison, at Walla Walla. Tho ollieers
have learned that McLeary, Hunson's
pal, was once the possessor of the
olotbfS, Bt was discharged from the
prison lust .1 mi,-. Hansen was bound
over yesterday by "oiniiilssioncr Marshall.

MEETS WITH
APPROVAL
Citizens Pleased to Hear of
Aid. McKillop's Willingness to Accept.
He Will Probably Be Elected by
Acclamation���No Other
Candidate Likely.
The announcement in The Miner of
last night that Aid. A. L. McKillop
had agreed to become a candidate for
the mayoralty was read with a great
deal of pleasure by the citizens of
Nelson in general. His probable election by acclamation, or hia certain
election in case of a contest would
mean that Nelson would have an efficient chief executive during the year
1001 and that affairs around the City
Hall would be conducted in an effort
to serve the best interests of tho City.
Aside from what appeared this
morning in the editorial columns of
The Triuunc���and that cannot be relied upon��� The Miner has been unable to learn anything of a second
candidate. The Tribune says that
"the next Mayor of Nelson will be
John Anthony Turner." In this The
Tribune is a little premature. Mr.
Turner informed a representative of
The Miner this morning that he had
not told anyone that he would or
would not be u candidate and that no
one was in a position to speak for
him. And Mr. Turner probably
knows.
By a friend of Mr. Turner's The
Miner was informed this morning
that he (Mr. Turner) would undoubtedly decline to run. Under certain
conditions he would have accepted the
nomination. If the requisition which
was circulated by Mr. Jacob Dover,
asking Mr. Turner to run, had beon
signed by others than only tho close
friends of the present Mayor, Mr.
Turner would have probably ncceedod
to the request, but he did not desiro
to place himself in tho light of a
straight Houston candidate, which ho
would havo been had ho accepted.
There was a desire too, to make tho
fight ono of the "Old Timers" against
tho "Johnniecomelatelies" and thls.it
is said, Mr. Turner also objected to.
Under different auspices, therefore,
Mr. Turner would probably have bo-
come a oandidate. If ho entered the
Held now he would enter it as a
straight Houston candidate and Mr.
Turner, who is no man's fool, known
that this would bu futal and will
probably stay out.
PASSED RAISED BILLS.
Two Clever Japs Caught in Vancouver, H. C.
Vancouver, B. C, Deo. 14.���Two
Japanese, Hanay Sato and Mantoka
Hamagucht, were arrested yesterday
morning, charged with uttering raised bills. A number of raised bills
have been in circulation here, In each
case tho utterer, a Japanese, claiming
that he was the innocent recipient of
the raised note Irom a fellow countryman.
From Nanaimo, B. C, also comes
the story that some Japanese there
have been passing raised bills in that
town. A similarity of circumstances
led the Vancouver police to become
suspicious of tbe .lapnneso who had
slmiliarly amended notes in thoir
possession here. The police are confident that the Japanese under arrest
are membeis of a gang who had planned to work the entire country with
raiBed bills. The work of tampering
the notes was cleverly   accomplished.
REDMOND REELECTED.
Dublin, Dec. 14.���The members of

Burke were appointed whips.

to the enemy. This may not tie the
declared purpose, but in substance it
is to have this effect. The amendment destroys the neutrality of the
Canal, which the llay-Puuneefote
treaty was intended to secure, on
identical lines with the provisions of
the Constantinople treaty which secured the neutrality o' the Suez Canal.
Whether Great Britain will sink tlio
Clayton-Bulwer treaty and accept the
amendment remains to be seen; she
has great forbearance, especially
wbeie the United States is concerned,
and it may be that she will agree to
a modification that gives an entirely
altered aspect to tho situation. But
we cannot admire the spirit which
animated some of the Senators in insisting on the amendment. They expressed the opinion that Great Britain
would never permit the resentment of
independent action by the L'nited
States to lead her to begin hostilities,
because her material interests in
maintaining peace with that country
are too great. To take advantage of
the friendly relations between the
two countries, to commit an aet of injustice or to snatch an unworthy advantage ean scarcely be considered
generous or even honorable.
FREE!
THE MENDACIOUS JOHN.
Two papers in a small town like
Nelson, opposed on many if not most
public questions of interest, can
scarcely avoid running foul of each
other at times and engaging in Controversies that too often drift off into personalities. The Miner is no
saint and does not pretend to be; it
is not meek enough to turn the other
cheek, the one having been smitten.
It haB given its local contemporary
many a hard rap, and expects to give
it many another; but it takes the
reading public of Nelson to witness
that it has never struck below the
belt. In not resorting to the ruffianly
���it would not be stronger than the
facts warrant if we said blackguardly
���methods of our antagonist, we may
probably be at some disadvantage;
but. we are quite content to submit
to the handicap rather than outrage
the decencies and violate all the established principles of respectable
journalism,as Mr. Houston does. Ills
paper of this morning contains several
examples of the very disreputable
matter that has become sojiharacter-
istic of it
We leave his rufflanisra to his readers,
however, who are probably entertained by it, and confine our present remarks to a statement that is remarkable ohiefly for its mendacity. Yesterday we took^occaaion to comment
on matters and things of municipal
interest, and we are free to contend
that no intelligent, conscientious
reader could take exception to the
manner or matter ot the discussion.
We said nothing that could fairly be
considered as unfair or unjust to any
class of our citizens. Yet Mr. Houston does not scruple to hold The Miner guilty of declaring that "the Labor Unions must be sat upon; that
they have no rights that should be
considered ; that the salt of the earth
should rule them with an iron rod."
We do not quote these words with tbe
purpose of showing how untruthful
they are; any one who cares can see
that for himself by simply reading
what we did say. No doubt these lying words are put forward in the expectation that they will incense the
Unions. All we care to say in regard
to them Is that, if the members of
the Unions are fools enough to believe that The Miner said these things
or anything in the least like them,
they have more room for common
sense and wisdom than they are likely to fill.
The Unions have combined to boycott individuals in order to iniluenee
them to some particular line of action desired by themselves. This is
a legitimate statement to make because it is true. There have been
members of the Council, depending on
the general patronage of the people
for a livlibood, who have boen influenced against their judgment by the
fear of offending the Unions, 'lliis
is carrying Unionism to a dangerouB
length, for as far as it goes it threatens class control of our municipal government. The Miner has tho courage
to protest against It; the magnificent
and generous height to which Mr.
Houston rises Is to twist it to our prejudice, deliberately falsifying our position in order to achieve his purpose.
He is welcome to the popularity he
can obtain by such methods as this;
and in case there may be any doubt or
misunderstanding on the point, we
desire toadd that his friends who encourage him in it and hope to profit
from such popularity are quite ns
contemptible as himself and as deserving of the scorn of every honest and
right principled citizen.
The United States iienate Is making
a sad mess of the Hay-Pauncefote
treaty. The purpose of the amendment
carried yesterday is to enable the
United States to make offensive and
defensive use of the Nicaragua Canal
|p its own wars and to forbid its use
It may be of interest to the readers
of The Miner to know that The Tribune of this morning, containing so
many choice roasts of The Miner and
The Miner's friends, was published
only through the courtesy of The
Miner. The Tribune press broke down
early this morning and The Miner
pressman was called out of bed at 2
o'clock and The Tribune forms taken
to The Miner olliee and the paper run
off on The Miner press. While editois
may fight, the mechanical ends of rival newspapers are always on good
terms and always willing to lend a
helping hand when a break occurs.
The Miner press groaned a bit more
than usual this morning for it is a
very sensitive creature and can't stand
for roasts. It will, however, have to
put up with it for two or three days
while The Tribune press is being repaired.	
This is from The Toronto Globe:
"Mr. W. A. Galliher, M. P.-elect for
Yale-Cariboo,was one of the.Nile voy-
aguers in 1S8:",, and possesses the silver medal and Khedive Star given for
services on that occasion. Mr. Galliher is still fond of aquatic sports, and
often recalls old times on the Nile by
shooting the rapids with his friends
near bis home at Nelson,*!!. C."
Joe Rymal was the greatest wag
that ever sat in the Canadian Parliament. He is now an old man, and is
supposed to be dying. If brought to
hiB attention, he will be highly amused at the too obvious anxiety of many
of the newspapers to publish his obituary.

Again iu Rossland.
The old trouble between the (Ireat
Northern and the Canadian I'aeilie
which was thought to have been amicably settled lias broken out afresh,
says the Kossland Miner. A motion
for an injunction wns brought before
Mr. Justice Walkem to restrain the
Canadian I'aeilie from running the
track along tlie side hill of the Le Roi
mine to the Black Hear. It was applied for by Mr. A, 11. MaeNeill on
behalf of tho Red Mountain railway.
A motion for adjournment was made
by Mr. J, L. (J. Abbott on behalf of
the Columbia and Western for next
Thursday. This was granted on the
undertaking that neither party should
duany work in the interim. Anothir
application was mado on behnlf of
the Nelson e.fc Fort Sheppard Land
Company to restrain the line being
run over the Legal Tender, Nick of
Time, Pearl Fraction.and Annie Fraction, the surface rights being owned
by the company applying.
Since the agreement which was being airlved at some time since, a connection between tlie Red Mountain
nail tlie Columbia nnd Western has
been made, just north of tlio Red
Mountain railway yard. Over this
several carloads of machinery have
been passed. It seems that the Frac-
tiiuu has arisen ill tlie other direction
���the proposed yard at the ltlack
Hear. The quid pro quo between
the two lines has not as yet been settled, and it is probably over this that
the disagreement has arisen.

William Costello, au expressman,
came before Magistrate Crease, ut the

ago four carters were up on the bume
charge but were discharged without
a line, but wero warned that the next
offender would be made an example
of. Since that time Costello was the
lirst offender and therefore, the Magistrate said that the by-law would
have to be enforced,and at one imposed the heavy fine. Mr. Costello admitted that be had driven on the walk
at the corner of Latimer and Stanley
Street for a distance of 120 feet. This
