London, Nov. 28.���Truth announces
thut Emperor William has achieved
one ot the objects of his visit lo England in having induced Queen Victoria
to give a conditional promise to visit
the Prussian court during the last
week ot April. She will travel, it appears, from North Italy to Germany by
tlie St. Gothnrd tunnel and he Germany's guest for several days at Cob-
lenz or Potsdam. Her Majesty's visit
will be entirely private. There will
lie no invitations or reviews.
London, Nov. 3S.�����Tbo Gazette announces that Emperor William has
heen appointed an honorary Knight of
Hie Grand Cross of the Victorian Order.
Port Victoria, Nov. 2 . ��� Emreror
William, before he embarked left .-KiiOO
wilh Colonel Marshall for the henefil
of the children of the soldiers of the
First (Royal) Dragoons, now campaigning in South Africa, of which
regiment His Majesty is honorary col-
onel.
Paris, Nov. 2D. ��� Tbo Paris correspondent of The Times telegraphs the
Stibstanoe of an interview be has had
with a distinguished German who
went to England to observe what was
going on during the visit of the Kaiser and who said :
" 1 do not-think the Emperor went
to England purely for political cuds,
i r merely for family reasons. I urn
nl moat sure that without in any
v -y intervening in the Transvaal
affair he more than once expressed a
wish to flee the war hrought to a close.
"1 am also persuaded that HiB Majesty asked many questions as to the
present relations between Japan, the
United States aud Great Britain, aud
there wore many who were inclined
to detent in this curiosity something
more than mere matter of conversation. When the Kaiser's plan for a
great German Navy is realised,the Colonial policy of Germany will undergo
a complete change. It will then be seen
lhat at many points Germany and
England have the same interests and
meet witb the same opposition.
"It will then he rnderstood.peihaps,
why the Emperor has made such careful inquiry as to the attitude of tbe
United States and Japan in the far
East.."
London, Nov 21),��� The Berlin oor-
resDOndent of the Daily Mail says:
"King Humbert bus invited Emperor
William und Queen Victoria to go to
Lriiiligheru In April and both have ac
cepted. The Queen had originally intended to go to Potsdam, but this
plan was shelved in favor of a meeting in Italy."

through Boar diplomatic   cbauuels:
"President Kruger and Piesident
Steyn have instructed General Joubert
and General Cronje not fn split theii
forces into small detachments, bnt to
strike vigorous blows. General Jon-
liert has three corps, oue holding Ladysmith, the second commanding tha
Tugela and the third east of Estcourt,
iu order to cut off the British rotreat.
General Cronje's forces are divided
into three contingents, one at Kimberley, another at Modder River and the
third in the rear of Geneial Methuen's. "
London, Nov. 28.-Tbe War Office
has decided to test the Mills-Webb
cartridge heit in use m the United
States army and has given an initial
order to a Boston firm which, at the
outbreak of tbe Transvaal war, transferred a factory to England, Immediately receiving  a recompense lor this
enterprise hy the al'ornientioned order.
The British ar my is now using leather
cartridge belts which havo been found
to be somewhat still and soon covered
with verdigris.
London, Nov. 28.���The Associated
Piess learns that the action of Lord
Paunoefote and other British Ambassadors in notifying the Powers that a
state of war has existed since October
11, between Britain and the South African Republics has prompted inquirii s
hy the various Londou embassies regarding tbe nature of the hostilities.
The Associated Press is officially informed that the notification has in uo
wise changed tbe British views as to
lhe Poor status, but iu spite of the
ambiguous references in the Queen's
speech and other Offioial documents at
the commencement of the war regarding "military operations," and other
evasions of tlio usual term "war," it
appears that the United States] has
consistently recognized tho Boers politically an independetiit state, considering the olaiiu of British suzerainty
too slightly adhered to to put them in
the light of rebels.
It is tacitly admitted by Britisli olli-
thom but a severe fire opened from
a hill forced the Lancers to retreat.
General Cronje was witb tha Boers.
Among the Boer prisoners are Alderman .Tepln and Commandant Ressik,
who led the Boer force. Many of the
Boers voluntarily, surrendered.
"The Boers wero shelled during the
retreat and must have lost heavily,
but thoy succeeded iu getting away
northward with their six guns. The
British were badly in need of more
cavalry.
"Tbe bulk of tbo lighting was ou
Free State territory and the engagement was admirably planned. Thirty
Boer wounded aro under treatment
here. At the close of the action Loid
Methuen complimented tho naval brigade upon their splendid behavior, and
expressed his regret at their losses."
MORE DETAILS.
Orange River, Nov. 27. ���(Monday).
���The British arms here have achieved
a brilliant victory. The enemy,
strongly en trenched, held a range of
hills commanding both sides of the
railway at liooi Laagte,near Gras Pan.
Tbo troop under Lewis recon.loitered
in an armored tram jm Friday. The
Boers shelled tho train killing Lewis
and a private, General Methuen then
advanced. His column made a delom
and bivoucked for the night at Swinks
Pail, three miles from the Boer posi
tion. At dawn the advance began,
the guards forming the reserve. The
column debouched ou the plain, eastward of the Boer kopjes. The Boer
guns opened lire. Two batteries of
British artillery posted on each side
shelled the doers, the practice being
good ou both sides.
The Boors stuck to their positions,
tiring steadily and accurately. Tic
duel, which contiuuually became hotter, lasted three hours. Tho Boers'
shells wounded several of tbe naval
brigade. Finding it impossible to displace the Boers by artillery, Geueral
Methuen resolved upon an infantry attack. A brigade of infantry including
the Yorkshire, Northampton*, and
Nortliuniberlands, with the naval brigade on the right, gallantly stormed
the Boer positions in the fuea of a
withering lire and carried hill after
bill. The navul brigade under Colonel
Mooncy captured the main position
against a terrific lire, but suffered severely.
"The railway line was repaired to a
poiut six miles north of Gras Pun tc
day and the telegraph was reopened tc
within eight miles of Modder River,
or 8ii miles from   Kimberley.''
Later.���Gatacre occupied Bushman V
Hoek yesterday,with a battalion of infantry. His main body is at Putters'
Kraal.    Tbe enemy retired to Molteno.
BALFOUR'S  SPEECH.
London, Nov. 28. ���Arthur J. Balfour, tho Government leader in the
House of Commons, addressing the National Conservative conference at Dews-
bury today, repelled the charge that
the Government's policy iu the war in
South Africa was the acquisition ol
the gold fields. He asked if. during
the last 10(1 years, any British statesman bad dreamed ofj taxing the Colonies for the benefit of the Mother Country. Britisheri wero uow sacrificing
the lives of those dear to them, he asserted, for the sake of tbe security and
honor of the Empiio. Tho first acts
of the drama were beiug played in
Cape Colony and Natal, but tbe denouement would be played, he trusted,
iu dominions not now subject to the
Crown.
"I havo now come to the conclusion," he said, "that the declaration
of war by the Transvaal and the Free
Stato was not nny despairing struggle for liberty,but a bid to make tinm
selves the nucleus of a Dutch speaking paramount power iu South Africa,
and to exclude lor ever the hated Britisher from a dominating influence in
that part of the world. Tbe people
have risked their all upon the stake ol
war, and it is incredible that such a
risk would no run merely to prevent
tbe Uitlanders getting u vote. Tbeii
dream may bo madness, but it is intelligent madness wheu we oonBider the
whole situation and the military difficulties that beset Great Britain in a
South African campaign, They have
also vainly counted upon thu British
party system, and another reason may
be found in theii profound contempt
for British arms."
Passing to a high eulogy of the
"Brilliant bravery of our troops, the
conrag i, patriotism and endurance of
the small colony of Natal, so trau
soendeutally displayed," and the
"spirit of the Colonies generally," he
continued:
"Last but not least may wo not on
this occasion express our thanks to our
American relations who have done all
that is possible iu a case like this,
namely, have provided aud equipped
the Maine, not only in the interests of
Immunity but us 1 well believe iu their
sympathy for these engaged in the
great fight."
In tbo course of an eloquent peroration in which he said he was unable to
lift the veil hiding the future, Mr.
Balfour said ho "was confident an era
of peace, prosperity and freedom would
follow these dark straggles,"

THOUGHT BETTER OF IT.
The grain meu cf Manitoba have
complained for several seasons tbat
there was not sufficieut Cauadiau shipping to do the trade from Fort William east. From the time tbe wheat
begins to move until the close of navigation llie utmost facilities of the C.
P. R. are employed to get as grent a
quantity as possible to the bead of nav-
igatiou. The season is short, and
dealers and farmers alike are interest-
r-I in getting the advantage of tba
cheaper water rate. There has been
diHIcnIty,however,in procuring vessels
to carry the wheat away as fast as it
arrives The Canadian coasting laws
will not permit cargoes iu American
bottoms to ho carried from one Oanad-
an port to another. Shipments in American bottoms are to American ports,
and wheat thus carried is taken to
England via New York instead of via
Montreal. Tbe entire country was dissatisfied with this; it wanted our
wheat for export to go out by our own
ronte, the St. Lawrence. But if there
were not Canadian vessels enough to
carry the wboat from Fort William as
fast as offered, this became impossible. Tbe grain dealers of Winnipeg,
interested in rapid transit, said there
were not. and Montreal, that stood by
and saw the great bulk of tbe Manitoba exports go to New York, supported
them in tbe assertion.
Representations to this effect were
made to the Government at, Ottawa by
the Boards of Trade of Winnipeg and
Montreal, coupled with the prayer
that the coasting laws be relaxed so
as to permit of the employment of
American vessels. The Government:
were gracious enough to listen favorably, and an Order-in-Council was
passed throwing open to American
vessel-owners the coasting trade of the
Great Lakes. This was but a few
months ago. Last week a large and influential deputation of Canadian vessel-owners, shipbuilders, and representatives of the Canadian lake-carrying trade generally, waited on the Government and pointed out that the
change in the laws threatened destruction to Canadian shipping. They
showed conclusively that the home
supply of vessels was quite equal to the
demand ; that it was fully capable of
handling all the grain that offered at
Fort William, aud that as a matter of
fact, a Canadian vessel bad heen compelled to go on to Duluth for the cargo
it could not obtain at the Canadian
port. The facts that wero presented
to tbe amazed Ministers had tbo desired effect, ond the. Premier intimated
to the deputation that the Orddr-in-
Council would be rescinded.
It is a good thing to have a Government who will retrieve their errors,
but it is better to have one that will
not commit, them. Ministers should
have informed themselves of the circumstances, beforo taking the extraordinary step of throwing open tha coasting trade of the countty to foreigners.
That is a most unusual thing to do,
and in our case it was hopeless to expect that the Canadian shipping Intel est could hold its own against the
enormous competition to which it
would be exposed. If the privilege
wero to be allowed, the effect would
be to drive Canadian shipping off the
Lakes, There would seem to have been
the same want of consideration here
that was displayed in the reluctance
to solid a Canadian contingent in Snub
Africa.
These are days of momentous issues
and weighty discussions. Considerable space is given in an English exchange to n person described as "a naval expert," who insists very strongly
that ior transport services tbe Department should employ hired ships instead of those of the Navy. On the
latter the commanding officers of tbe
regiments are subject lo tlie regain
tions of the naval authorities, and tbey
and men alike have to strictly conform to them. On hired transports
tho commanding offiers are more independent, and for all practical purposes retain command of their own
men. The gravity of this matter IS
too stupendous for ordinary comprehension, wbioh can rise to no higher flight
than to grasp the importance of getting the regiments on the required
ground as speedily as possible. Whether Army legulatious or Navy regulations shall prevail on bonrd ship may
be of greater consequence thnn the relief of Ladysmith,but it is a hapny ignorance that cannot so   distinguish it.
Tomorrow the Sardinian will havo
heen out a ronnd month,and no tidings
of her since she passed the Cape Verde
Islands. The Cape Town people are
waiting to give the Canadian hoys a
brotherly welcome. but Canadians
themselves will be content now to
know tbey aie safe and have unt foot
on South Afiiea to strike a blow for
Queen and Empire. We do nnl think
there is any cause for alarm, but uews
of their lauding will bo the most welcome piece of intelligence tbat has
reached the Dominion these many
davs.
Mr. Cronin, of Moyie, and Mr. Fauquier, of New Deuver, are the latest
to incur the displeasure of the journalistic Thug of this City, whose conception of public duty is to use bis newspaper as a clnb with which to belabor
those who presume to hold opinions

T
HE CITY COUNCIL
FIVE THOUSAND DOLLAKS TO REPAIR THE WHARF
Ami Approaches, to Bo Asked For From
tlie Batepayers���Petition Presented
Favoring the Expenditure-
A special meeting ot tho City Council was held Inst evening at 4
li'elock, Mayor Neelands presiding.
There ware nlso present. Aid. Hillyer. Fletcher, McKillop, unit Kirkpat-
rick.
A letter waB read from Mr. F. W.
Peters inviting the May ir nnd Aldermen to u trip over the Colnmbia &
Western branch of their system on December 7, returning ou tlio llth.
The invitation was thankfully acknowledged, tha members present expressing their desire to avail themselves of it.
Messrs Ward Vivo.*,, wrote asking
that thoy be given the insurance on
the eleotrio light plant, and quoting
rates.
The subject was referred to the City
Engineer for report as to the amount
nf insurance it would be desirable to
carry.
Ward Bros, also wrote- enclosing a
oheqne for $100 ns license for the Hartford Insurance Oo., and stating that
thoy expected the amount would be
refunded in case the hy-law should be
repealed. The other companies represented by the firm hurl not yet been
heard from as to whether they wonld
continue to do business in Nelson under the circumstances.
A letter wns read from \V. F. (lore,
Deputy Minister of Lands and Works,
in reply to one written some time
ago, asking fnr information as to what
portion of the water front is held by
the 0, P. R. or private parties. A
map was enclosed setting forth the
frontage held by the C. P. R. This
showed that the company hold about
BOO feet from high water mink at Ward
Street running west, and about 100
feet along the lake shore east to the
City limits.
Aid. Fletcher moved that the Government be asked to give the City control of the water frontage from the C.
P, R. holding outward. This was approved of.
A petition was presented from the
meichauts of town asking that the
City wharf he placed in a safe and
sound condition. Aid Fletcher thought
that something should tic done in the
matter, as at pres nt the City was
incurring great risk. Having taken
over the wharf th? City was responsible for any accident that might occur
nnd might be let in for heavy damages.
Aid. Hillyer���It is dangerous now,
and since the citizens appear lo be
anxious to hnve it dnoe their request
shonld bo respeot-jd. The trouble is
that our term of ollico is so near a
i losa. How would it do to put n
watchman there?
The Mayor pointed nut that by the
time n by-lawcoiild be submitted and
funds raised the new Council would be
in office.
Aid. Fletcher suggested that the
present by-laws might bo deferred fnr
a week so as to allow one to bo sub-
in it ted at tho snmo tinio as tho others,
to raise funds for thu wharf.
Aid. MoKillop���Something must be
done vi ith the wharf.
Aid. Fletcher���We have no money,
and the only way to raise it is this.
Sonic arrangements will have to be
made with the steamboat companies
by which that wharf should be n
source of revenue to tbo Oity. They
should pay the interest on the loan and
leave us n little margin, The coat
wonld be abont |^,500, I believe, and
this would give us a wharf about ton
feet wider than at present.
Al.l. Fletcher nfovcil that n by law
lo raise $5,000, for wharf approaches
and street Improvements be prepared
and submitted.
Aid. McKillop seconded the motion,
which carried, nnd a by-lnw wns no-
cordingly introduced nnd put through
its several stages. The by-lnw provides that the debentures ihall hour
interest at the rate of 4\^ per cent,
and lie spread over n period of thirty
years. It was deoided to have, all bylaws 7oted ou on Monday, December
11, instead of on the 5th ns advertised.
Tenders were sent in for the supply
of bolting for the dynamo at the elec,
trie power house. That of tho Beard-
more Belting Co , of Toronto, wns accepted at |3,50 per lineal foot.
Tho City Engineer was instructed
to box in the pipe from tho penstock to
tho power house,nnd "Orflfl routine business having boon disposed of the
Couuoil adjourned,

The case of Brandon vs. Ratcliffe
involving tho possession of a lot iii

non-suited in County Court yesterday.
W. A. Galliher appeared for plaintiff
and S. S. Taylor, for defendant.
Chief of Provincial Bolice Bullock-
Webster leaves this evening for a visit
fo the Coast, after which he will take
a well deserved holiday in the Old
Country. Provincial Constable S. A
Kelly will be in charge of the olfiee
hero during his absence.
The steamer Moyie was five hours
late yesterday, not arriving from
Kootenay Landing until after 10
o'clock. The passengers report tbat
there was a break-down on tho line of
the Crow's Nest Pass, nnd that tho
train failed to make connections on
schedule tune.
Tomorrow will be St. Andrew's Daj,
nnil tho Sons of Scotland with their
friends have arranged to celebrate in n
mimner befitting the occasion in Nel-
sou. From the number of tickets tak-
on up it is evident tho gathering
around the festive board will be huge
one. An excellent programme has
boon provided.
Mr. B. B. Hodge had a pleasant surprise in store for him yesterday evening after dinner A number of his
friends assembled in the office of the
Royal Hotel, and presented htm with
an address and a beautiful morocco
bound Bible. From the tore of the address it, would appear that Mr. Hodue
took some liberties with a Scriptural
quotation, which his friends have duly
marked in The Book.
Two mnEiiificent onrihoo heads,
mounted and crated ready for shipment,
attracted considerable attention in
front of the Dominion Express Company's office yesterday. Thej aro the
property of Mr. Ernest, Mansfl dd, who
expressed them to London wheri one
will adorn the office of Mr. Mansfield's
associates, and the other will ho forwarded to tho Paris office. Old sportsmen pronounce one ol the beadis to bo
one of tho finest ever seen in the
Kootenays. It is really a splendid
specimen, there being 112 points on the
antlers.
John A. Morrison, West Fort William, Ont., is anxious to settle in Nelson, aud writes lo the Mayor asking
what the opening is for market gardening, ranching, dairying or uny kindred Industry, Mr. Morrison is im old
Hudson's Bay Co.'s man, and says he
has been in charge of severjl trading
P'ists fnr that company, The Mayor
uil! doubtless reply that Nelsou is not
an agricultural district,and as for market gnrdi ning, tho Chinamen appear
to have a monopoly, and can undersell
any white man. His Worship will
also probably add that there is not
room for another newspaper in Nelson,
should Mr. Morrison be disposed to
launch into a business so higby remunerative. *
The side of funoy work under the
auspices of tho Presbyterian Ladies'
Aid opens today in the store on Baker
Street, west, lately occupied by Martin O'Reilly & Co. A very choice collection of work adorns the various
stalls���so choice that thore will be
no difficulty in effecting sales. Tea
and cake will be sewed during the afternoon aud from 5:30 to 8 o'clock,
hgii tea will ho served. A choice programme of music is among the attractions, which include a candle-burn
guess-work prize.competition. The

wheu those who oanifot get thoro today will have an opportunity of securing some of the fancy work, enjoying "tbe cup that cheers," partaking
of home-made cake and candies, and
at the snmo time forwarding a very

Messrs. Wadds Bros., photographers.
have  some  splendid   views  of  Oamp
Mansfield,   taken    last  week.    There
are a couple of views of the bunk house
which go to show   that  the  men   are

mud in most  camps.    A   flash   light

UNION MINERS.
Miners That are Miners and Miners
That aro Not.
New Denver, Nov. 27.���Things remain very dull here, and despite the
repeated rumors of a settlement of existing troubles between the niino owners and the Union men, there are no
encouraging signs that an agreement
will be arrived at this side of Christmas. Tho w ish is father to the thought.
We would all like to see tho mines iu
full swing agniu and the return of
prosperity to our ;town. Most of the
good, practical miners who osod to
work at the Bosun, have left town.
They ,were picked men, aud fellows
who would readily secure employment
at any mine in the country. Those
who remain are miners who can do a
great deal of blowing���but where they
gained their experience (?) is a puzzle
to ail who don't know them. Some of
the biggest agitators we have here iu
the way of Union men, never saw a
mine until they came to this country
a year or so ago, but now they pose as
tirst class miners and talk with an air
of authority that would make a curbstone broker blush. Among tho lot
are Pyraan Poacher, an ex-Bosun mine
mucker, who possibly never was iu a
tunnel in his life; Thomas Crawford,
a farmer who arrived from the east
about twelve months ago, and stinck
a job in a mine, but now counts himself a full-fledged minor; Harry Huer,
another farmer and teamster if he was
at. his own business, but who now discourses learnedly ou crosscuts, hanging
walls, stopes, etc. Theso men have
beon all their lives accustomed to
working 20-hour shifts on Ontario
farms at from $12 to (16 a month, aud
glad to get it. But when they come
hero and join the Miners' Union, they
are loudest in their demand for $8.60
for eight hour's work.

s ni this year, an unusually brisk business is snre to mark December, and
our merchants are in better shape to
handle the trade and supply the demand thau they have been in ptevious
years. 	
The new stock of Christmas goods
just received by .T. J. Walker is well
worth inspecting. The man or woman
who fiannot find a seasonable and suicide gift in the Walkor stock, and at a
price within their reach, would bo hard
tn suit. The diamond display of this
establishment is of unusual magnitude.

It may have been noticed hy the
comparatively few readers of The Tribune that our peculiar contemporary is
inclined to give The Miner a fair
amount of freo advertising upon what
it alleges to be our "chesp advertising
rates." This is kind of The Tribune,
but it evidently does not realize that
it is stultifying itself iu this matter.
Last week the Miner aud Tribune
submitted competitive bids for the
publication of four City by-laws und
next day The Tribune exulted over the
fact that it bad underbid The Miuer
!jl:il on a comparatively small contract.
For the tobacco advertisement The Tribune so kindly refused that The Miner
might receive it, the advertiser was
glad to pay The Miner $1.50 per inch
per month, our regular Weekly rate,for
its pnhlieation in the Weekly Miner,
while it correctly placed The Tribune's
value as an advertising medlium at iiO
conts per inch per month���a conservative estimate of the value of the two
newspapers as advertising mediums.
Uur advertising books are open to all
who care to look into this matter of
the tobacco advertisement mentioned
in yesterday's Tribune. As a matter
of fact, The Tribune is generally ready
to take almost any old rato to secure
an advertisement. Oue instance we
bave in mind where |2.60 was asked
for a half column ad. in The Tribune,
und where rather than fail to obtain
the ad. The Tribune's manager gladly
accepted $1.25. Tho Miner's advertising rates are low enough���lower than
they should be--but that they aro popular rates is proven by the advertising
patronage given The Miuer hy the
wise advertisers of Nelson.

OUK LONDON LETTER.
Account of the English Market by a
Special Coirespondent.
London, Nov. 11. ���(Special Corre-
spondenoe~of The Miner).--Under the
influence of the British successes and
the landing of- the first Army Corps,
which now amounts to 84,000 men, the
balance being expected next week
when a forward move will be made to
relieve Sir Georgo White at Ladysmith, the vaiions markets have been
strong throughout. The liat'tir Circus
more particularly has improved, laud
and finance companies coming into
special favor. Yesterday being tho
commencement of the fortnightly settlement, there was some realising by
weak hull operators, bnt there is no
doubt that the market, will improve
next week.
Commencing with the African Market. Amongst the leading speculative
shares, Consolidated Gold Fields have
been most prominent on the issue of
tho favorable directors' report. These
shares have been steadily rising all
[ the week, and are now at ��8';,. Rand
Mines have also risen and are now
��41%, East Rand's have improved to
��7;'., and Rnudfontein's are strong at
fl!1.,. Modderfonteiu and Anglo-French
are also better, but the feature has beeu
tbe demand for land shares ou the
viow that the value of property in the
Transvaal must, increase to an enormous extent with the coming change of
Government at Pretoria. Amongst tho
laud shares, South West African,
South African territories, Oceania,
TransvaaL developments. Henderson's
Transvaal Consolidated lands, and
Mosambiqnes have oome into demand.
Amongst the shares of tho out crop
mines a geueral improvement has taken place in such as Ferrcia, Henry
Nourse, Wolbuter, Crown Reef, and
City of Surburbau. Barnato Consols
aud Johannesburg Consolidated investment have also been taken in haud.
In the West Australian market the
bears have been making a succession
of determined raids against the high
class stocks, one after another boing
attacked under cover of various uu-
fouudei rumors. Lake Viowh have
jumped from 211., to 83% while the
dividend of i'i a share has not yet
been deducted. Associated Gold
Mines, Golden Hoiseshoe and Great
Boulders have been attacked also.
The Home Rail Market is apparently
out of fashion, and although there ure
further substantial trallio increases, it
has failed to attract investors or spec
ulators. The tone, however, has been
vory steady. Business in thu uiaiket
for London Bank shares has heen somewhat restricted during the past week.
Tho tone, however, has been linn
nud, in viow of the harder tendency
of rates of discount, will no doubt remain so. Bauk of England stock is
quoted at ��840, Bank of British Columbia at ��18 aud Bank of British Noith
America at ��60.
Business in the Industrial market
continues to show a steadj improvement. The feature has been the big
demand for Bovril shares. Viakere.
and Maxims and Armstrongs (gun
manufacturers) have also improved.
Shares in the other industrials are
about the same.
The American Rail Market has been
In rather a  bad condition,  business
having been interrupted hy lhe State
elections anil tbo dear money bogey.
There seems to be no cheek to the
remarkable expansion ol trade iu the
States, and the traffic of tho various
railroad ss continue to show substantial increases. Tho Paoiflo stocks have
been vory active whilst Louisville,
Milwaukee anil Atchison are lower.
Canadian Paoiflo havo fluctuated wilh
Yankees, and have reacted. Grand
Trunks have given way sharply on a
disappointing traffic return. Canadian Paoifl.CS are quoted at t'lIT1.1,, Grand
Trunk al t'-'o'.j, do. seconds preference at i'oli1.,,, do, thirds al ��8994 Bm'

The only feature in New Zealand
Mines has heen the advance in Wui

seized among an officer's effects at
Dundee. The puper is a communication from a Basntoland magistrate informing the general commanding tho
Gleiicoe camp, thnt there will be no
diffloulty in hiring Basutos at five
shillings a day and saying, "Must
they bring their horses?"
General Joubert added: "Iain preserving the original of this document. "
At the beginning of hostilities the
French consuls at Pretoria and Johannesburg issued notices in tho papers
tbat Frenchmen must ohservo the
strictest neutrality. Their wise counsels wero followed, for while the Germans, Dutch and Americans formed
volunteer corps, no French corps was
formed. No Frenchmen joined the
Boers, but some entered the international police force, which was organized to protect foreign property. These
police rendered great sorvice, protecting not only French hut the English
property that had heen hurriedly forsaken by its owners.

Washington, Nov. 28. ��� It has not
been decided by tho department of
state, whether or not a neutrality pro-
clniniitiini shall be issued, based on the
formnI recognition by the British Government of a state of war between
England anil the South African Republics. It is not at all unusual in these
later days to refrain entirely from the
issue of neutrality proclamations.

There May Be Fighting in Cuba if
Natives   Are Not Satisfied,
Haviiia, Nov. 38.���Although thero
has been a Kicat deal of exaggeration
with reference to the risings in different pints of the island, thero is no
doubt that, despite the tranquility of
tho country, some apprehension exists
lest within the noxt few months some
trouble should occur in tbe event lhat
the United States Oongres* does not
^ivo definite assurances respecting the
future of Cuba.
It is asserted tbat tho majority of
Ihe police, especially the meiriheis of
tha rural guard, havo for several
weeks been adding a fraction of tin ir
Hiilnms to a fund foi use in case of an
outbreak, This has beon brought lo
headquarters by persons who have usually proved reliable. It has uIho
been repotted thut "recruiting for further emergencies' is in progress
throughout the islund.
