for
London,    Nov.    33.���A   dispatch   to
IReuter's   News   Agency   from Pekin,
elaieel Nov. 22, says:
"Competent   independent  judges of
|the present critical stage of the negotiations opine   that the   consideration
pt all the peace   preliminaries   should
-be transferred to Washington, or to a
Jpuropean capital,and be placed in the

Sfcf full powers to arrange the terms to
He imposed on China.    Once the terms
BJire agreed on they should be present-
I ed as a demand not requiring negotia-
�� tions  with   the Chinese   Cominission-
(ers.    It Is felt that the present discus-
[ sinus of the Ministers who do notpos-
��.sess the powers to  decide ou the mul-
[ tlplicity of propositions without refer-
, enoe to their Governments   are   bound
indetcrminedly   to  drag   out the pre-
| liiiiinaries, nnd   result   in long delay,
[ causing the greatest Uneasiness in the
foreign communities;   who   anticipate
astly increased difficulty in reaching
settlement   owing    to   the  alleged
��aste of time."

Payment-. j
j    New York, Nov.   23,���American de-
apatclies, says The Tribune's   London
Correspondent,  Indicate   that the Chinese situation   is   regarded more seri-
fously   in   Washington   than   it  is   in
I London.    Tbe theory  that the Hritish
; Government will joiu Germany in lin-
i possible demands on China is not supported by the   fact   as  understood   in
' diplomatic circles in the British oapi-
' tai.    The two powers are working to-
L gether.but clearly the British Govern-
I ment will not persist in demanding an
impossibility, when   the   interests  of
the mercantile community in England
require the restoration   of   trade relations with China at the earliest possible date.    Premature   action   by   the
L'nited   States   Government   in withdrawing from negotiations will retard
that  settlement.    The   Herald   has   a
Washington despatch   which  says the
Administration lias   adopted   a   waiting policy in the matter   of tbe Pekin
negotiations. No action has been taken upon Germany's proposal   to   make
the execution of the   lioxor  leaders   a
condition   precedent   to tbe   continuance of   negotiations.    Tho   President
has  decided,   it   Is   understood,   that
UiIb matter can well rest until further
developments show   that   tho   German
and otber Governments  propose to do,
at the same time Mr.Conger In accordance with his instructions, will advocate that the powers adopt  a   demand
which   tbe   Chinese Government   enn
meet.
REJECTED THE REQUEST.
Constantinople, Nov. 23.---The Porte
has definitely rejected the request for
an exequatur for a U.iitcd States consul at llarpoot. This refusal is regarded by tbo l'nited StatO: legation
as a direct violation of treaty rights,
consequently, despite thu refusal, Dr.
Thomas 11. Norton, who was appointed by President McKinley some timo
ago to establish a consulate ut llarpoot, hiiB been directed to piocoed to
this post. Tbo expected visit of tho
battleship Kentucky to Smyrna Ib bo-
liovcd to relato quite us much to this
mattur as to thu Indemnity   question.
Great Lake Boat Builders Will Branch
Out on a Large Scale.
Duluth, Minn., Nov. 23.���Arrangements are now being completed for
the construction of steel ships on the
lakes on a large scale for ocean service. These ships will not be limited
to size by the length of tbe new Canadian canalB.'but will be of any length
wanted by buyers. Six or seven large
and completely equipped yards on the
lakes are in the scheme. The large
ship builders have now drawn plans
for ships of from 350 to (550 feet in
length, but of no greater width than
43 feet which they have submitted to
ocean ship owners. They have also
submitted their designs to the bureau
of navigation and it has approved
them. The plan is to build in sections ships of a greater length than
the present locks will carry, join
thein temporarily in the ship yard,
run them down tho Great Lakes and
to Montreal and then put them together. The hulls will be built complete at the lake yards with a.bulk-
hoad both sides of the centre line.
The space at the centre between the
bulkheads will be framed but the
plates will bo bolted temporarily.
When completed the centre plates will
be taken off and the ship launched as
two boats. Then the rear part containing the machinery will hitch on
the forward end nnd one end will tow
the other. It is the expectation of
lake builders that they can compete
not only with the reBt of tho United
Status but with foreign builders.
Kaslo & srocan Railway Tied
Up by the Government
Agent.
CONSERVATIVES
TO REORGANIZE
Monster Convention Suggested  at an  Eastern
Point.
Strong Plea to Make Hugh J.
Maedonald Leader of
the Party.
The Kaslo St Sloean railroad was
yesterday seized and all traffic was
tied mp. \The cause of the action was
that the companj. refusefl to pay the
timber tax of which they were in arrears." Mr. John Martin, deputy inspector, went to Kaslo from here yesterday and seized the road. He placed
the roundhouse under lock and key
and demanded that there should be no
admittance. The train had left for
Sandon when- this was done and so
Mr. Martin remained to seize the engine on the arrival of the train at
Kaslo last evening. It is not known
how long the road will be tied up but
it is thought that the revenue will bu
paid over by the company at once and
ii a Hie will be resumed. Mayor 11,ms
ton und lion. Mr. Meliride, Minister
of Mines, arrived at Kaslo last evening ana they were at a loss to know
how to get to the Slocan' district. The
company and the Government are in
dispute regarding the ownership of
the timber and the seizure will bring
matters to a head. It is understood
that the seizure does not effect tho
company's lake propertied and the
boats will run as usual.
FLOODS IN  CALIFORNIA.
VERY SAD DEATH.
Serious Damage Dono to Real Estate
and Railroads.
Aneheim, California, Nov. 23.���This
city is threatened with inundation by
the rise of the Santa Ana River. Over
one hundred families have already
beon driven from their homes near
the river and it is feared there has
been loss of life in the low lands below here. Anaheim is 100 feet lower
than the river and when the water got
over the banks there was no way of
checking Its Bpread. During thu night
the Catholic cemetery was flooded to
the depth of one foot while the peat
lands where a largo crop of celery is
growing, havo also been Hooded.
Along the Los Aliniitos branch of the
Southern Pacific lailrond more than a
mile of track has been washed out.
The Saute- Fe trains arc sta'.lcd here
by the flooding of 3,000 feet of track
beyond Fullerton.
THEY DON'T WORRY.
London, Nov. 23.���The morning papers devote an unusual amount of
space to Mr. Krugcr's arrival at Mar
seillcs and his doings, but are inclined to treat the matter editorially
with comparative indifference in the
oonviction that nothing oan alter the
course of events in South Africa. No
resentment Is displayed at what is regarded as, ".the harmless enthusiasm
of Frenchmen."

��� The London News, Independent,
says: The King is dead. Long livo
the Ring.
The Conservative party at present
lacks a leader, and from end lo end of
Cnnada newspaper men and politicians arc asking with wondrous unanimity who is to be the new leader.
The suggestions are many. Hon. N.
Clarke Wallace has his.supporters. So
has W. F. Maclean, editor of the Toronto World. So, too, have the Hon.
T. Chaso Casgrain, E. B. Osier, M.
P., Hon. Geo. E. Foster, and B. L.
Borden, snatched as a brand frum the
burning down in Nova Scotia.
But why this sudden dropping of
Hugh John Maedonald'.' Did not Hugh
John lay down the premiership of
Manitoba to throw himself into a
hopeless fight to oblige tho Conservative party and the Conservative leader? Did he not to oblige his allies,
go into a game where the other fellow had all the chance iu thu world
to stack the cards and load the dice?
Did ho not do all these things and
more for the Conservative party? Why
then lihould that party leave him to
private' life, instead of going on with
the pr egi-nimnc of having Hugh John
succeed to the leadership?
Sir Charles Tupper was boaton. but
no one doubts his ability. Foster was
beaten, but no one doubts his ability.
Hugh John was beaten in a contest
whore the chances were about seventy-
live thousand to one against him.
Why doubt his ability?
It is the custom of certain papers to
sneer at Hugh John Maedonald as the
son of his father, aud of certain cartoonists to picture Hugh John aB
chiefly hats and boots inherited from
his deceased parent, and these tactics
have not been without effect. Mirny
who do not know Hugh John regard
him as nn amiable and well meaning
man, who lacks the ability to _ju���o a
success of politics, lacks the steadfastness of character to stay either in or
out of it for any length of time, and
who trades and thrive! on the merits
of his dead father.
That Is a popular but mistaken Impression, which has all his life been a
handicap to Hugh John Maedonald.
lie- has been steadily sneered at, and
persistently depreciated by men with
less brains than he has, and ho has
consequently hud to make headway
not only against thu obstacles that ordinarily beset man's pathway bnt in
the face of nn opposition all the more
deadly beonuso it professed to be good
natured.
Nevertheless Hugh John Maedonald
went ahead. Iiu mado a success of his
life in a pilvnta capacity by displaying ability of his own and he made a
success of his political career by rehabilitating the I'nnsotvntivo party in
Manitoba, when It wns reduced to a
disorganized bamlful and succeeded,
where others had fuilod, in routing
Hon. Thus. Greenwny, horso, foot,
and artillery.
Had Hugh John Macdonuld wished,
ho could hnve hud thu pick of dozens
of safe scale Bad ho done so nnd
been elected we doubt if there would
have been any talk now of any other
leader,but had he dune so lilsabilities
would have been neither greater nor
less than they arc at present.
He Chose a riding, however, where
as we have said, the chances were 7S,-
000 to one against his winning and
lost.
I'he News has no brief to plead the
ciiukii .if Hugh John Macdonahl. The
News Is not a Conservative organ and
speaks fur no party, but this paper
sees in Hugh John Maodonald quite as
much ability anil lender like qualities
us it sees in any of thu other gentlemen, save perhaps Bon. Geo. K. Foster, whose Dimes are being mentioned,as iHisslble leaders of tho Conservative pnrty.
affords a much needed opportunity for
thorough reorganization and for the
appointment of a leader who will
command the confidence of tho party
from oue end of the country to the
other, says the Calgary Herald.
Since tho death of Sir John Maedonald the Conservative party of Canada
has never boon called together in convention. Since the death of Sir John
A. Maedonald the Conservatives of Canada have bad no real voice in the selection of the many leaders who succeeded that illustrious statesmen. Men
became leaders who did not possess
the confidence of the entire party and
cabals were formed with the pitiable
results which are to be seen ever today. * * * In the first place let a
thoroughly representative convention
of Conservatives be called to meet at
Toronto, Ottawa, or Montreal during
the next session of Parliament. Let
each constituency in Canada be represented by say 20 of its leading Conservatives. The convention should
include between three and four thousand delegatus. Let tbe policy of the
party be put clearly before the country. Then let the whole Conservative
party in convention assembled proceed to appoint a capable leader.
lie may be in the Houso or he   may
not, but he   must   bu   above   and   beyond all a man of first rate   executive
ability���with special talent for organization.    He must be clean,    lie must
be popular.    Hut   he   must   bo   above
all a man with a capacity for management. Politicians generally ate n slipshod   lot.    Their   principal   stock   in
trade consists of   brass bauds, processions, flag waving, oratory   and   hurrahing.    There was a day   when   this
sort   of   campaigning    was   effective.
But the schoolmaster has been abroad
in the land and newspapers have been
read as they   were  never read before.
Tho average voter nowadays knows as
much about the political   situation as
did    the   stump   speaker   tweuty-flvc
years ago.    The   halcyon dayB of oratory havo passed, A big newspaper, a
great wholesale   hoUBc, or   a  railway
managed by the   mothods of the aver
age    politician   would   quickly   meet
with disaster  as   great as that which
recently    overtook   thu    Conservative
party.    The truth is that the methods
of the party aro out of date.    The political leader  of   thu future must discard the beuting of tom-toms and   use
instead tho calculating,exact, business
liku methods of the   general   manager
of a railway.    lie must surround himself with   lieutenants   of   commercial
honor and political capacity.  He must
cut himself loose from the blow-hard,
the   whisperer and   the   boodlcr.    He
must cithur reorganize   or abolish tho
party's campaign   literature.    It costB
thousands  of  dollars   and    probably
never won u vote.    Tho   same amount
of money spent In getting a good Conservative newspaper  into every   home
in the   country   would   accomplish   a
thousand-fold more.
It is impossible to exaggerate the
effect a great convention of threo
or four thousand Liberal-Conservatives would have in creating enthusiasm throughout thu ranks. Hut enthusiasm tilonu will uot carry an election. Thu convention muBt place In
itself In the petition ot the shareholders of a great business concern. It
must talk business and it must elect a
board of directors and a president
who will property manage the affairs
of tho party.
The organisation of the Liberal
parly won them the recent elections
before a single votu was pulled. The
policy of tho Conservative party Is
nod en,nigh to commend itself to thu
electorate. Given a capable ami ii.ijiu-
lur leader t" Superintend tbt proper
Organisation of the party and success
is assured.
IDLE THOUGHTS
OF A BUSY MAN
De Wet Has a Remarkable
Dream and Relates It to
His Troops.
Says Queen Victoria Has Fled
to Cape Town to Escape
the Chinese.
Krongspruit, Orange River Colony,
Nov. 22.--General Uruce Hamilton's
column arrived hero yesterday after
scouring the Lindley and Heilbrun
districts. The troops brought In a
number of prisoners. The latter relate the remarkable assurances they
received ut Thalia Nchu from General
Dewet, a fortnight ago. Dewet, they
saw, urged the Burghers to hold out
till December 10th, when: "All the
Hritish were going home." He added that the Hritish had the permission
of Russia to fight for a year only.
Queen Victoria was at Capetown,
whither she had fled to escape the Chl-
noso, who had captured half of England. General Botha had driven the
Hritish out of the Transvaal and had
taken Pieterinnritzburg, Dewet himself was fighting in Cape Colony,burning fnruiB, and Lord Roberts, wounded by three bullets, bad beon taken to
lleilhron to die, and had been buried there   beneath the town ball.
London, Nov. 23.���A special dispatch from Middleberg,Transvaal Colony, says that in the surprise ot the
outposts of the "Huffs" (Third Infantry), south west of Balmoral, Nov.
loth, the Hoers lost (10 men killed and
wounded. The Burghers, the dispatch
adds, simultaneouly attacked a garrison of FuBileerB on Wilge River but
were beaton off with the loss of 120
men killed und wounded.
London, Nov. 23���The   Star   today,
commenting on the report  that   General Botha with his command is close
to Dowetsdorp,   regards   the news   as
most disquieting and says: "We have
heard   many   strange and unverifiable
stories but one thing   we   know, that
French was pursued all   the way from
Middleberg   to   St. Anderson and   got
through the   terrible   neck   of mountains only by the skin of  his   teeth."
Proceeding    the   Star   suggests   that
General   Botha   pursued   th,r British,
inarched south   and joined hands with
General Dewet and that  thus   Bloem-
fontein is endangered  and the Orange
Free Stnto will have to be re-conquered before the subduing  of   the Transvaal can   be   commenced.    In   connection   with   the   above a belated   telegram^ today   announces   that   General
French arrived at  Johannesbug.
TO SUCCEED "BOBS."
London, Nov.23.���The Cabinet today
decided to recommend Queen Victoria
to make Mujor General Lord Kitchener, a lieutenant general, so as to enable him to tuke over the supreme
commniid iu South Africa, when Lord
Roberts Bhull louve the country.
BRIEF LOCALS.

Conservative principles and abandoned
their own, and not content with this
they copy their evil deeds and improve
on them. The time for protesting an
election is limited to a certain number of days after the return of the
member is gazetted. The Conservatives were blamed, and perhaps with
reason, for delaying tbe returns of
their opponents and hastening their
own, in order to gain an advantage
in the battle of tho protests. This
was a sharp and entirely unworthy
practice, and Liberal leaders so indignantly denounced it in Parliament
that the Clerk of the Crown in Chancery was allowed to gazette the returns as received. Now the Liberals
are doing the very thing they grew
purple with rage in condemning a
few years ago. No other name fits
them so well as that of the party of
organised hypocrisy.

THE DUTY BEFORE US.
Tho political apatli.v in Nelson may
not be as great as surface appearance
indicates. It may be that the mass of
the electors are quite alive to the duty
they aro expected to discharge on the
sixth of next month, and that they
are only refraining from a condition
of useless excitement In the meantime. We shall at least hope this,
for the electiou of a member to represent a district in Parliament is never
a trifling matter, and the people who
meet it in a trifling spirit are not
good citizens of tbe State. Two hundred and eleven of the two hundred and thirteen members of the
Canadian House of Commons have
heen elected, and the fate of parties
for the next five years has been decided ; but that is not a reason why there
should bo indifference iu respect to
the remaining two. The electors of
Yale-Cariboo and Hurrard cannot disturb the conditions at Ottawa, but
they can speak in a tone that will
command attention if they but give
discretion to their verdict.
For party reasons some of the leaders iu Quebec conducted a long campaign, with the object of exciting the
racial prejudices of the people of that
Province. They were successful beyond their expectations; beyond even
thler hopes, it is now believed. Thoy
made almost a clean sweep of the constituencies, and Canada presents today the anomalous spectacle of a great
British Dominion being in the hands
of a majority who take pride in
claiming that they are of nn alien
race. It is easy and amiable to say
that there is nothing in this; that
we are all Canadians together, and
that it can matter little who are iu
possession of the Government. But
with the spirit that developed with
the Boer war so recently in evidence,
it is not tho highest part of wisdom
to count too confidently on this. And
at any rate the electors of Yale-Cariboo should regard it as an obligation to their patriotism to send to Ottawa an opponent of the Government, as a protest against an order of
things that is not desirable from any
view that may be taken of it. The
election of Mr. Galliher would be accepted ns an expression of welcome to
alien domination.
Thero is another reason why electors should bestir themselves in support of the Opposition candidate. The
Labor Unions are untitled to representation if they can get it, but would
it be wise to stand quietly and allow
them to put in their man? The cause
of labor is not the only one to be considered in this constituency; indeed,
we are not aware thut it is suffering
from such neglect or disabilities us to
require any special consideration at
all. Members of the Unions are quite
as capable of taking cure of themselves as are those of any other class
in thu community, and do not need
that any one should be sent to Parliament to look after their special interests. The question has another side
to it, however. The election of Mr.
Houston lust June hud a bad effect on
mining devlopinent in Ibis portion of
the Province. Iiu stood as a Labor
candidate,and for a year had been one
of tbe most active of Labor agitators.
His election was nn intimation to
foreign Capitalists that Labor was
restleBs and was determined to bo triumphant. That duy's work drove
away many thousand dollars that
would otherwise have been invested in
our mines. Follow thia with the election of another Labor candidate, and
the effect will he most depressing. It
is not necessary to pursue the point;
the intelligent elector can do that for
himself. The conclusion must be that
it is thu duty of every citizen to vote
on tho (ith proximo, nnd bis interest
to voto for Mr. John McKane.
The question of a leader for the
Conservative party is not a difficult
one to solve, as there is a fairly generous supply of excellent material
from which to make choice. A happy
and easy solution of it, however,
would be the selection of Mr. Hugh
J. Maedonald, to whom Mr.Boyd will
gladly yield the seat he wrested from
the Liberals. There is this to be considered, however. Maedonald is not
a safe Conservative seat under all circumstances, and the influences that
were used so lavishly aud shamelessly
to elect Mr. Sifton in Brandon would
be employed to defeat Mr. Maedonald
in Maedonald.
The Territories were not unanimous
for the Government, as generally supposed. Mr. Walter Scott, the gentleman who defeated Mr. Davin in West
Assiniboia, is himself authority for
classing him as Independent. In an
address to the electors after the event,
he said : "The victory in West Assiniboia is not to be classed as a Liberal
or party victory. Scores of staunch-
hearted Conservatives and Independents joined with the Liberals in the
contest."
To the admiring thousands who
welcomed his landing at Marseilles
Oom Paul proudly boasted: "The
Boers would never yield their free
dom; they would rather be extermi
uated to the last man." This con
summate old humbug and hypocrite
took precious good care, however,that
he should not be tbe last. We are
afraid history will never make a hero
of Paul Kruger.
No one is surprised at anything the
Liberals do now. The dissolutions
in Quebec and Prince Edward Island,
following immediately on the Federal
election, are the most flagrant instances of that "entangling alliance"
which a former Liberal principle so
strongly condemned.

THE RUSSIAN ARMY.
Interesting; Facta About Its Organization and Numbers.
Lieutenant W. C. Rivers, United
States Army,gives in the October Cosmopolitan somo interesting details
witli regard to the "Organization of
the Russian Army." The general obligation for military seivieo in Russia,
he Bays, extends to all able-bodied
men from 21 to 43. A low estimate of
the Russian active army In peace puts
the number of officers at 30,000 and
the rank and file at 800,000. In war
it is .alculnted that 03,000 ollieers
would be required and that there
would be available 3,440,000 trained
soldiers for the ranks.
Tho army In war would consist of
tho field troops, reserve troops, depot
troops, fortress troops, local troops
and the Imperial militia.
All citizens on becoming 21 years of
age are liable for service with the
colors. The term of active service
with the colors is four years, aftor
which the soldier passes from the
standing army into tho reserve. He
f remains 14 years in the reserve, being
called out each year for a short period
of tiaining.
The Cossacks serve under special
laws. They are liable for service
from 18 to 38 yenrs of age. The first
three years they are not actually in
service,but are in the preparatory category. For four years they serve in
the standing army, most of them as
cavalry. For the next four years they
are allowed to go on furlough, but
; must keep thoir arms and horses ready
for instant use if called out. For an-
i other four year period they are also
on furlough, but must keep in readiness their arms and equipment only.
Then they pass into the reserves and
(are liable to be called out only in
ca��e of war.
The standing army is organized into 29 army corps. All the corps contain two infantry divisions, and most
of them oesides a oavalry diviaion of
regular or Cossack cavalry.
The division consists in tbe infantry
habitually of two brigades of two
regimonts each. A regiment has four
battalions of four companies each, or
10 companies.
Tho peace strength of an infantry
regiment is 70 ollieers and 1,81(1 men;
the war strength, 71) officers and 3,-
874 combatant men.
The prevailing color of the Russian
_rmy uniform is dark green for
blouse, trouBors and cap. White linen
Biiifornis are-worn iu hot weather.
Infantry as well as cavalry wear a top
boot, the ordinary shoe being unsuitable for the muddy roads of the country.
The Russian cavalry is armed with
a rifle and bayonet.as well as a saber,
but revolvers are not carried by the
cavalry soldiers.
The field artillery is composed of 414
batteries���98 heavy field batteries,
with the remainder light batteries and
mountain batteries,all possessing four
guns in peace and eight in war. Resides, there are 23 horse batteries of
the line and 24 howitzer batteries of
six guns eaoh in peace or war. Im-
' mense parkB are maintained for the
supply of tho artillery in time of war.
There are also 42 reserve field batteries, which is war would expand into 104.

A SCOTCH STORY.
A recent address by Ian Maclaren
contained many Scotch stories, told
with admirable skill���skill so admirable tlia^ it would bo shameful to attempt a repetition. One Btory, how-
over, may be told, because it seemed
to have a real touch of Shakespearian
humor. I_ a dull Scotch village on a
dull morning one neighbor called upon another. He was met at the door
Iiy his friend's wife,and the conversation went thus:
"Cauld?"
"Ay."
"Uaen to bo weety(ralny) I think."
"Ay."
"Ia John In?"
"Oh ay, ho's in."
"Can I Bee him?"
"No."
"Hut a wined to see him."
"Ay, but you canna soo him.
John's d.ld."
"Dell?" *
"Ay."
"Sudden?"
"Ay."
"Vory sudden?"
"Very sudden."
"Did he say onything about a pot
of green paint before  ho deid?"
Creek), where it was thought gold
would be found in abundance. But
thoy had left tho gold and it took
time to pick it up again. The boom,
says the New Zealand Star, if boom
it can bo called, dates only from
March, 1896, when the Electric dredge
got her first big return. Since then
claims have been taken up in all directions throughout Otago and no fewer
than seventy-two dredges are i:ow at
work,the majority of them payingdlv-
idends to tho amount of ��137,820 or
8089,100 have been paid up to tlio 31st
of October this year from twenty-
three concerns and it is estimated
that ��770,000 or 83,850.000 in gold has
been taken from the "streams in Otago
since 1890.

dredge Ounedin was launched iu the
Otago district. But the Dunedln at

LIGHTNING ROUS ON ST. PAUL'S.
A New System   of   Safeguards   to the
Cathedral.
A total rearangement of the system
of lightning conductors on St. Paul's
Cathedral 1b now virtually complete.
It is interesting to learn from Killing-
worth Hedges, M. I. E. E., the electrician under whose Buperlntendence
the work has been carried out, that
the old Idea that the erection of a
lightning rod on the highest point of
a structure ptotected an area all round
it is quite illusory. Tho safeguarded
area was supposed to bo the space
within a circle whose radius was
equal to the height of the lightning
rod. This theory, we understand, is
now discredited, and the Cathedral
has been protected by a system of conductors, perpendicular and hortizonal,
comprising over a mile of cables, on
which at various prominent, points
aie placed about 50 " aigrettes"���
group of solid copper spikeB raHating
upward and eventually connected at
the baso with cableB.
The old system of jolntmnklng by
"junction pieces," or spicing and
soldering, has also been abandoned, It
having been fonnd that if surfuceB
were merely screwed together they
were apt to oxidize and Bet up resistance, nnd If they wire noldercd the
soldering sooner or Inter would bo
very likely to become loosened and detached by the natural expansion and
contraction of the metals.
A new method of running to earth
���ins also been ndopled. The UHiial
plan Is to connect the conductors with
plates of copper embedded deep down
In the moiBt earth, and these plates,
to bo effective, must be of considerable si_e. It Is often dllllcult to get
them down low enough. At St. Paul's
Cathedral they have made earth .on-
uectlon by means of ironplpes perforated at the bottom and driven Into the
?round by special tackle, thua aftord-
ng a paasage down the conductor is
passed to the necessary depth, and by
means of whieh, If necessary, the earth
below may be watered. The wnole
work hns been carried out by tho Cn-
thedral surveyor's staff under the personal superintendence of the electrician.���London News.

HORSE STEPS TRHOUGH.
The IIolo Was a Small One Hut the
Animal Managed it.
Chief of Police Jarvis is feeding a
horse which is imprisoned in a hole.
By the alleyway across Ward Street
from The Miner Oflice is an excavation which was long since covered tip
with planks. A hole was gradually
worn in them and has now reached
the respectable dimensions of two feet
square. A horse of an inquisitive turn
of mind ventured too near the hole
anil the result was that in some remarkable way it managed to fall
through and is now in tlie cellar witll
the sole occupation of eating and
drinking what Chief Jarvis brings to
him. When seen by a representative
of The Miner tlie horse positively
refused to be interviewed or to explain how under the sun he managed
to negotiate such a small hole.
He apparently was very much satis-
fled with his quarters and when nsked
if he had taken to the cellar to avoid
the disastrous effects of a cyclone
which he might have expected he simply winked at his friend the chief and
continued to eat his oats. Steps will
soon bo taken to get the horse hack
to civilization again. Meanwhile tin-
owner will get into trouble under the
cruelty of animals act.
Liberal   Offer   Made   By   Postmaster
Ollicer of Nelson.
Thirteen two-cent stamps for a cent
and a quarter! This is the bargain
that is offered by Postmaster James
A. Gilker. It has been made known
to only a few up to date and these
have taken udvantage of it. Now
that it is laid before the entire public there will probably be a rush for
stamps while tlie barguin sale is on.
The Miner's first intimiition that anything of the kind was being done
came with the following letter:
"Vmir, B. C , Nov. 22, 1U00.
"Editor Miner: Is it true as we
have heard here, 'that the (lovernmeut
is to have a sale of stamps at the rate
of one cent and a quarter for thirteen
two-cent stamps?' And is the Nelson
postoffice to sell nt these rates'.1 Yours
truly, A SUBSCRIBER."
Upon receipt of this letter a Miner
man immediately started out to investigate. He called at the postoffice
and found Mr.Gilker,who, when questioned in regard to tho   matter, said:
'' Yes, we sell stamps at that rate.
It is no new thing,though there seems
to be a great many people who have
not found it out yet We have been
doing so ever since I have been in
oflice. However, there seems to bo
but a few people who take advantage
of this extremely liberal offer. For
some reason the great majority of people who buy stamps in this quantity
buy twelve twos and one one-cent
Btanip for a quarter. If they will but
give us a cent more we stand ready to
givo them thirteen twos instead, but
few people seem to care to secure the
advantage in purchasing them in that
manner. You may tell your Ymir
correspondent aB coming direct from
mo thnt we aro always ready and willing to soil him thirteen stamps for a
cent and a quarter. Hut in coming
for them he should not neglect to
bring his quarter.''
THAT NEW  ARMORY.
Local Members of the R. M. R. Are
Anxiously  Waiting.
The local members of the R. M. R.
expect to hear any day from Lieut.-
Col. Benson, of Victoria, concerning
the new armory which is to be elected here. Some timo ago Commanding
OHicer O.S. Hoer furnished the Colonel with the necessary data and yesterday a letter wus despatched from
here asking for information so that
the work upon the building could be
started at once.
The proposed building is to bo 1.10
feet long by .10 feet wide. It is to be
furnished with n gallery around tho
entire Interior. At one end of the
gallery a band stand is to be  erected.
At the rear of the building will be
placed suitable mess rooms for the
ollieers, non-coinmissioned ollieers aud
privates. There will also be in connection with tho building n well
equipped reading room. It is thought
that by the end of this year thu company will have enough money on hand
to furnish the reading room with all
tho latest reading material.
Since It has become known thai Xel-
son is to have a good armory many of
the ex-members ot tbe militia are
talking of re-entering  tbe company,

formed, too,that recounts may chango
several constituencies In Nova Scotia
and New llrunswiek, where election
officers, in some instances, have laid
themselves open to very grave charges
by their extreme partisanship and
worse, which put us greatly in the
disadvantage.
"The race cry will undoubtedly be a
factor in the disintegration. The Liberals undoubtedly started the race
cry, upon which Sir Wilfrid Laurier
secured power four years ago. I had
promised to bring in a strongor remedial bill. I stated at that time that
Protestants should not place confidence iu such a man as Sir Wilfrid
Laurier, who, although a Frenclimnn
and a Roman Catholic, had promised
to bring in a stionger lemedial measure than I, a Protestant. Thoy distorted these perfectly fair and true
remark of mine into an attack upon
French Roman Catholics, and then
made a race cry out of my innocent
remarks. That was the first instance
of race cry. The second waa the outgrowth of a statement in tho speech
from the throno to the effect that
every man, woman and child In Can
ada favored sending a Canadian contingent to South Africa. Mr. Tarte,
who with the 1 lovernment shared responsibility for this statement, denied
Its truthfulness, staling, in an interview witli the representative of a
French paper, that no Freuch-Can-
iii 1 iim favored sending troops,nnd adding that if England andj France wero
at war. England need expect no aid
hum Canada. For theso statements,
Mr. Tarte was brought to book, not
In e'.iiise be was a Liberal, nor because
he wus a French-Canadian, but because he was a disloyal man.
It was clearly the Liberals who
started the raco cry for their own aggrandizement in Quebeo,and they will
eventually Suffer   tlie   penalty.    They
will lind it rather dangerous playing
with lire, and mulling a business of
Inflaming racial passions. But the
blood will be on their own heads."

Since the Payne Mine of Sandon has
been under new management, which
took charge a month ago, rapid progress has been made in its development. Mr. Lawre, of Colorado, is the
new superintendent. Mr. W. E.
Zwicky, who held that position, has
been appointed lesident manager,
while C. II. Hand resigned that position and is now the consulting engineer of the company. Just before this
change took place, it is said, that
there was an order issued to reduce
tho force of men which number 125, to
half that number. Hut the order was
subsequently concelled, work was
carried on with more energy and now
there is more ore in sight at the mine
than ever before in its history of six
years steady development.
Although the company is now engaged in doing mainly development
work, regular and large shipments are
being made. It is said that tho output for a previous mouth netted the
company over 825,000. The net average per ton is about 885. Some tons
exceed this and have gone as high as
8400, while others bave gone much
lower than the average. The company
is working a large force of men as
tbe monthy pay roll amounts to about
811,000.
At present development is being
largely confined to No. 8 tunnel which
is being run to tup tho lead at the 800
foot level. The tunnel has now been
run about 000 feet and it is expected
that the lead will be reached in 100
to 150 feet farther. Work is being
pushed hero by three shifts and with
the aid of drills operated by compressed air, the machinery for manufacturing the latter being put in last June.
Although it iB exceedingly hard rock,
the tunnel is being driven at the rate
of over fivo feet per day. When the
lead is reached which will probably
be some time next month an upraise
will be made to connect it with No.
5. tunnel, where the main bulk of ore
is now being taken.
Work in driving No. 4. and No. 5
tunnels is also being eontinucd. The
latter has been driven about 1,700 feet
while the other has been advanced
still farther. The ore taken from the
entire mine amounts to about 40 tons
per day. These tunnels have been on
the lead all the way. The ri,ch paystreak of tho load averages about
three feet, although at places it become much larger than this. No. .1
tunnel is being laid throughout with
new tracks which indicate that a
rush of ore is at hand. The company
is also contemplating tlie erection of
an aerial tramway from tbe mouth of
No. 3 tunnel to No. 8, to facilitate
the handling of supplieB and tools.
The price of the Payne stock now
stands at about HO cents und owing to
the work being confined to development the demand for this stock has
been rather slack. But fiom now on
it^is believed that the demand will be
como stronger. For when the main
lend is encountered in No. 8 tunnel,
it is expected that the price will advance to 8L50, and even 82.00

Alderman W. E. Hoddcr, of Kaslo,
arrived in the City to day on business.
In speaking of the mining operations
there, he said that good work was be
ing done in connection with the True
Blue property which wns lately bonded by Mr. J. 0. Drewery of Rossland.
A good foreo of men have been engaged in doing work upon the trail and
erecting bunk houses. All the preliminary work has been; dono and the
men ure waiting for orders to start
development. At present Mr. Drewery is in Montreal in connection with
tlie new company.

Mr. S. S. Taylor, Q. C, who haB
just returned from tlie lloundary,visited the smelters of that dlstiict and
was greatly Impressed with tho progress that Is being made. The Gran-
by smelter nt (Irand Forks has mado a
record run. It Is now treating 7.10
tons per day, while the capnclty of
each of the two furnaces is only 2.10
tons per dny. The oro upon which
the record was made wns shipped from
tin-mines al Phoenix. Tho oro there
Is of such a nature that It can bo
rapidly reduced. Good progress Is being made in connection with the
building of tho two smelters at Greenwood.

A GOOD THING.
German Syrup is tho special pro-
sciiption of Dr. A. Hoshee, a celebrated Herman Physician, and is acknowledged to be one of the most fortunate discoveries in Medicine. It
quickly cures Coughs, Colds and Lung
troubles of the severest nature, reniov
ing, as It does, the cause of the affec
ton and leaving the parts in a strong
and healthy condition. It Is not an
experimental medicine, but has stood
the test ot years, giving satisfaction
in every case, which its rapidly increasing sale every season confirms.
Two million bottles sold annually.
Hosche's Oerman Syrup was introduced in the United States in 1888,
and is now sold in overy town and
village in the civilized world. Three

Lucky Soldieis.���Lord Rosslyn has
evidently an eye for detail. In his
article in the Mall describing the
effect of Lord Roberts' advance upon
Pretoria on the prisoners at VVatervaal
and other guards, he wrote: "Hollander and Hrltisher.soldicr and lloor,

to soothe their sorrows with so famous a brand as Robert Brown's
" Four-Crown."
