These   arrangements   are   expected   to

FRIDAY'S BATTLE.
Chieveiev, Camp., Natal, Friflsv,
Dec. 15.���The relief nolumn oon tinned
its advance from Chievely todav intending to assail the I oer positions
winch were known to be very s.rong
to the westward anil nothwest of Colenso. During the two preeeeditlR rlnvs
the Boers had allowed themselves to he
bombnrded without condescending to
reply with a single shot. Thev fur
ther gave half an hour's opening this
morning without an exchange, wheu
suddenly they belched oaf a stream nf
fire from all then- entrenchments he
sides opsni' g a fearful cannonade with
all their quick fires, field nnd siege
gnus, which were posted from end to
end of their positions. When their
presence and actual positions had been
determined, the British Naval brigade
commenced shelling all the ridges
north of tho town With marvellous ac
curacy.
At this time the attillery attached to
General Hart's division was busy
among the entrenchments on the hills
on the British left, under on��er nf
wliich the Irish infantry brigade
marched nut in extended order, to cross
the river and attack. Undoubtedly
aiming nt this battery, the Rners sent
several shells near the ambulance train
wliich was forced to change its position. While this was transpiring, the
field artillery, ou the rteht were bu��y
shelling the ridges of thn Ro��r left
flank, their excellent practise attract
ing the attention of the Boeis who retaliated with a scathing fire almost demolishing all the gnus and stampeding
the gun carriage horses.
that in view of such a contingency,
immediate orders will be issued for the
mobilization of tho fleet reserves.
"The British publio is awaiting
with the keenest apprenheusion the
first indicstio'i of active hostility from
continental enemies.
" A reconstruction of tbe oahinet is
eagerly discussed in political oircles.
Many deem it imperative that, its old
and useless members, like Goschen,
Chaplin and Cross, shall be sacrificed.
Lord Salisbury, oppressed with public and private ear��8 and shaken in
health, is declared to he anxious to retire, but it is represented ro him that
his disappearance would inevitably
cause a total collapse of the administration,
"A dead set is boing marie against
Sir Michael Hicks-Beach, Chancellor
of the Exchequer, on the ground of
his alleged refusal to provide adequate
funds for transportation in the earlier
stage of the war.
"It is also suggested that Mr. Chnm-
lerbiin's retnement may be forced hy
party pressure,confidence in hitn being
completely shaken. Should the war
oontinne much longer without a decisive British success, the formation of
a national coalition ministry is cer
tain with Lmd Rosebery as fnreisn
minister and probably Mr, Asqniili as
Colonial Secretary Lord Salisbury
retaining the premiership but giving
a proportion of the portfolios to the
Literal Imperialists.
"These and other rnninrs flying wildly
arnuml m the political clubs show how
entirely the feeling that the Empire is
in danger is obliterating the most
deeply marked party divisions."

The Inns of Court volunteers, composed of London Barristers and commonly known as "Tho Devil's Own,"
have volunteered for South Afrioa.
When Kruger launched his famous ultimatum, little did bo realize what
was coming
But for an erroneous, though ineradicable, conception of the lightful destination of the human hair, a few
picked Indians might do valuable service in South Afrioa as scoots.

a secnd contingent.
When the first contingent bad sailed
to South Africa the Dominion Government offered to send a seooud if it
were wanted, but the Imperial anthoi-
ilies thought they bad euough troops,
90 the offer was declined. They were
mistaken,that offer has been gratefully
accepted, and soon there will be another thousand sturdy Canadian fighters at the front. The difficulty beforo
consisted iu making a choice out of
the thousands of applicants, und tho
same difficulty will occur again.
It was said by some when the kelson
volunteers left, tbat the war would be
over by the time they got to Africa.
As n matter of fuct the campaign has
hardly begun. Tbere has|beeu desperate
lighting and heavy losses already, hut
the strife will be keener and the carnage more terrible ere tho struggle is
ended. The Canadian volunteers are
going on no pleasure trip. They have
uot merely to face the fatigue and
hardships incidental to every campaign. They will take part iu some of
the hardest and bloodiest lighting tbe
world has ever seen. They will oppose
brave mon and deadly marksmen,
fightiDg for their homes in their own
country, It is a grim war, a fight to
the death and practically withont quarter.
The Canadian volunteers know this,
and knowing it they go forth cheerfully aud eagerly. The fighting* blood
of the British nation all over tin world
is roused, a nation that knows not defeat and rises more determined from
every check. Cauadiau blood will dye
the South African soil, many of Canada's bravest will probably never see
their homes again, but these sacrifices
will be made cheerfully, and, if need
be, over and over again so long as
Greater Britain Is menaced, a country
on whoso flag the sun never sets.

The cities and towns of the Province
having 1,000 population and over are
given as follows in the B. C. Guide:
Comox, 1,200; Cranhrook, 1,000;
Cumberland, 2,000; Fernie, 1,000;
OreenwooJ, 1,000; Kamloops, 1,500;

1,200; Vancouver. 35,000: Victoria,
25,000i Wellington, 2,500. These figures are given iu the December number of the Guide. If the Guide i e *o
have valne aa an authority, it will be
necessary to take pains to make it as
correct as possible. These figures are
not correct. Nelson's population, for
example, is considerably in excess of
4,000. It stood at that figure a year
ago, aud during 18911 it has grown
very largely, as tho scoreB of residences
tli.it have been built since last spring
will testify. Perhaps the publishers
of tho Gnido'should not be.blamed, in
view of the fact that the City authorities persistently neglect to order an
enumeration, and are themselves as ignorant as anybody of the actual population ; but no one with any judgment
in such matters would put it as low as
it appears in the Guide.

There in a prospect of more expensive litigation for the Oity. The in-
soranoe men hav�� announced their
intontion of fighting the by-law which
requires each company to take out a
��100 license. If beaten they will increase their rates by 15 per cent, in
order to pay tho tax. Either the bylaw will be beaten and the City will
ho out several hundred dollars, or the
hy-law will stand and the citizons will
have to pay tho tax. Without considering the abstract right and wrong of
the matter, is the sum likely to he
realised from the licenses worth all
this bother?

A meeting nf the Libera I -Conservative Association was held in tne Board
of Trade rooms lust night over which
11,.. W, a. Mniuii'iiulrl, Q. c., presided. The object of the meeting was to
arrange for the reception of Sir
Ohnrles Tupper. who is explored to he
here tn" orrow eveniug,
Mr MacdnuaM, 111 explaining the
object of the meeting, said that ho had
desorlhed this constituency us Knote-
niL'-Yiile.-iluiilimi, heretofore thn dis-
triot was known us Ynlo-Cnrlboo, bat
tlio impnrtanon of the Kootenays pii-
tiilnd thera to separbto mention in the
tiiln of the onnstitnemy. He had lieeu
lelgraphed by Sir Charles Tupper that
in Ins rounds of the Kootenay district
be WOnId include Nelson, hut ennld
nut give a definite date. Ho hoped,
however, to be here tomorrow (Thursday) and wonld he hapny to merit the
Litieral-Cnnservattves of this district.
The speaker dilated on the importance of h.iviim party lines clearly defined. He said that heretofore politics
in llritish Colnmbia had been run ou
the "Ins and Outs" principle, but that
the ti ne had come when partv politics
slum Id he the war cry. Iu Nelson they
hud a very effective Conservative element and all that was wanted was
thorough organic tion. The Liberal-
Conservative Association was very
strong at present, but a little working
up wonld do it no harm.
A reception oommirtee to welcome
Sir Charles Tupper wns appointed,consisting nt Messrs. D. M. Carloy, Prod
Irvine. J. A. Kirkpatrick, .1. E. Annahle, H. P. Cameron, A. (5 Gamble,

A resolution was unanimously passed
thanking Mr. F. J. Siaikey for his
services as Secretary-Treasurer, and
Mr. Ii. M. Brydges wns chosen to act
during the forthcoming year.
A resolution was adopted endorsing
the Liberal Consotvative platform, a
copy of which will he forwarded to the
Secretary of tlio   central   Organization.
Aft��r considerable discussion on details of organization, tho meeting adjourned until January lb'.

The old Victoria Hotel is >o be opened as a temperance   institution.
Dr. H. E Hall, the dentist who
practised here nbout a year ago, passed
through tho City yesterday en route to

The Voters' List for the year IWO
shows an increase of over 100, divided
between housenolders and license men.
The list is not yet co'tiplete, but City
Ulerll Stracliau gives the above estimate.
The agents of the various insurance
companies represented iu Nelson still
hold ont th ir a $100 ner iinni m tax is
too steep. They say that if the fine
is imposed thoy will pop it on to the
insurance rales, and insurers will he
obliged to pay the impost.
Mr. H. Hawson, citv editor of tho
Victoiia Daily Times, represented his
paper on the recent Boundary excursion. He is now writing a series of
interesting articles anent the towns
and country he visited. The tirst nrti-
cle appeared ou the 1-lth instnut Thev

The charities committee will meet
toinoiiow. They have a good work in
hand, and the meeting, it is hoped,
will be attended ny all charitably disposed citizens. The various church
organizations have been called upon to
attend, hut: this dons not exclude any
citizen who may take an interest in
the movement. The object is to systematize charitable operations In the
past it hns been found that professional
mendicants have hnd the best of it,
while deserving cases have beeu passed over. The committee is composed
ul' members of the Oity Council, the
School Board aud tho various chntoh
associations
A local legal gentleman found himself in nu embaimasing position a few
days ago. Being about to leave for a
Christinas holiday trip he suddenly
discovered that his traveling suit need-
���'��� * cleaning and forthwith donned
s une oliler garments and pro
(Ceded to the tailor. The tailor prom
ised to havo the suit ready before train
time and when our legal friend an-
poured on the scene fnr his cloihei he
foun ��� that a supposed messenger hnd
called for the suit a few minutes he
fore. Time was vory short and it W8I
impossible to find the supposed "mes
senger'' so onr local friend had to travel in tho aforementioned relics of bygone days.
The local railway contractors were
surprised yesterday to Hud that their
tenders were not accepted at headquarters. Tho fact was that they hao not
complied .ith the form of contract.
There are about three-quarters of a
mile of stone work between Five Mile
Point and Balfour upon which nil the
contractors figured, but their figures
do not cover the lest of the ground���in
most instances. The lesult is thnt
new tenders have been called for. As
stnted in The Miner a few days ago,
the tenders were not in conformity
with thn specifications called  for    and
hence tbe necessity for a more definite
form on the par' of oontractnis. Mr.
W. F Tye, who hns charge of Hie
work, wuh seen by a Miner reporter
yesterday, and confirmed the story.

IB it is thought tbat the present force
will not he able to cope with the situation. General Torres now haf. some
5.000 men bnt it will tako nt least that
many more or possihly twice that
number owing to tho geographical con
ditions surrounding the uprising
which prevents successful military
movements. The Indians are scattered
so that unless some troops are sent to
the front to engage the small roving
bunds they will continue to depredate
tho country and harass tlie soldiers un
Ir-r General Torres until they wear
hem ont, There are now about 1,500
Indians engaging the attention of the
soldiers, while tlie remainder of the
5,000 braves who are on the war path
have scattered into small roving bam s
for the purpose of pilfering. These
roving bands of Indians are rapturing
supply trains sent out to tbo Mexican
forces in the field. They have of late
captured    several     trains     containing

I     MININa NEWS.
The Veuns Gold Mining Company
aie wnstiiiR no time in transforming
their properties on Morning Mountain
into a folly developed mine. As Miner
readers will probably remember it was
only iu April last that Dr. Doolittlo
discovered the rich pay ore that led to
bin Toronto Syndicate' taking np the
bond on the propeity. They already
linvi' three tnnnels, aggregating over I
750 feet, run in on the rein, giving!
stupes o( 135 feet and 150 feet between I
No. 1 and No. 2 tunnels and between
No. 2 and No. 8. Two pnystroaks I
have been out into in both No. 1 and |
Nr. 2 tnnnels, the first 85 feet long
and the second not cut through yet,
and every pound of ore in the vein,
vhieh averages over 20 inches wide, is
good milling rook, averaging over $20
to the ton. Tho company are now
negotiating for a ten-stanin mill,
whioh they will instal on tbe property
an early next spring as the season will
permit and they will probably have
tin1 mill pot into the property during
the winter on the snow, so that it will
oommenoe operations very early in
th" summer. Thero is now considerably over one year's ore for a ten-
sttmip null in the slopes nnd with the
present rate of development, which will
he continued all winter, with a force
Of 1' men, they expect, to havo at least
two .veins' ore blocked out by the time
tin' mill can he installed.
H.iiso, Idaho, Dec. 111.���Last summer
a new mining district was discovered
at what is called Miller Mountain,
abont 10 miles northeast of Boise.
The ledges aie largo and numerous,
and much lino looking ore was found
on the surface. A bunch of claims was
bonded to eastern people, and a tunnel
has since been rim on two of them,
the Magnolia and Joe Jefferson.
Ir is learned that this tunnel has cut
tho ledges and that very rich ore is
found, The parties interested are re-
ticen": about the matter, but it is
known that there is a streak of somo
11 inches in one of the properties that
runs over |(100, while there is a very
large body of ore that is of good average. These ledges are from 30 to 80
feel wide.

FREIGHT   RATES RAISED.
NiwYork, Dec 10���Asa result of
the protests of shippers, the Interstate
Commerce Commission has sot a date,
December 21, for a bearing ou the pro-
po.s tl advance in railroad rates. New
York merchants claim that the pro-
posed odvanoe Is so radical as to oreate
a very serious disturbance in trade relations.
Insure your life and property with
Annable who represents only
Canadian Companies. Who is
it that shouts encourage home
industries and says buy your
goods at home, don't send your
money to outside towns ? Ask
the same man about his insurance and you often hnd he has
it placed with a foreign company. Ask him about his Fire
Insurance and you find it all in
Foreign companies. Canada
has over 25 Insurance Companies, organized with Canadian Capital, by Canadian men,
who pay losses as promptly as
Foreign Companies. Be loyal
Canada for Canadians, first,
