participation. Com inning the paper
says:
''We do not know whether thorn are
many clear headed people who believe
it tbe duty of the Colonies to seed aid
to England under such ciicumslatices.
Be this as it may, it is a singular
spectacle in history to see a little people like the Boers keep in clunk, even
for a few hours, that great Empire ou
which the sun never sets "
The attitude of this paper is causing
much criticism among loyal Canadians in eastern Canada,

MOKE VOLUNTEERS.
Tbat there are nt least 360 British-
born residents in Spokane who will
volunteer for service in South Africa
ngainst the Boers when the call comes
for another Canadian contingent, is rhe
opinion nf A. W. Taylor, of Victoria,
B.C., who is in the citv on mining
business. Mr. Taylor is clo��elv in
touch with military matters on the
other sido of the linn and, having
been in this city for several davs. he
has had an opportunity of inciting
many of the British residents and of
making a pretty accurate estimate of
the number who will take the first op-
portnnitv to re-cross the line to Rossland and enlist with the second enntin-
Said Mr. Tavlor: "The second
Canadian contingent will consist of
from ��,(100 to. II 000 men nnd of this
nnm er British Columbia will probably furnish 1,000. At least 500 nre
already ready to enlist from Vancouver
and Victoria nnd are only waiting for
the final orders from the department
as to the numbers to le allowed tn enter. Of course the enlistment of
Canadian troops for Sonth African service is purelv voluntary. No demand
hns heen made upon Canada for troops
bnt the Canadian men are eager for an
opportnnity to go.and it is probable as
many again'as are needed will volunteer. I have found a great mnnv Can
adians in Spokane making preparations
to go to Rossland, the nearest available poiut, as soon ns the inlistnieiit
rolls are opened, which will be in a
few days-and I think 2n0 is not overestimating the number who will go
from here. Most of the Canadian contingent will be mounted aud army

gravity of the military situation i-
again becoming accentuated in tbe
publio mind owing to the com oie te
absence of news. Nothing has beeu
heard from Lord Methuen since Sunday and it is feared tbat his comtuun
ications have been out.
A :orrespondent of the Daily News
telegraphing from Modder River Inst
Saturday Bays:
"The Boer position, already formidable on Deoembor 11. has since been
greatly strengthened, extending for an
area of 13 miles. It is entrenched according to the most modern methods
throughout its entire length. Wire
fences have been placed before all the
flenches nt everv point, amis huve

every evidence that the Boers are well
supplied with ammunition. Only a
powerful attacking force can hope to
make a successful assault."
The Times iu an article from the
pen of a military officer laments this
disnetsion of the British force, quotes
the maxim of Napolpou in favor of
concentration and regrets lhat Lord
Metbuen did not rotir" to Orange
River a week ago.
The latest dispatches received seem
to show that the Boer forces are standing on thfl defensive at all points,
General Holler is ordering the troops
now arriving at Capetown to proceed
to Durban tn reinforce the Natal column.
Absence of news from him has led
to the surmise that he is Hying to

The nppe Is for Yeomanry and volunteers are b'dng responded to with
the greaiest enthusiasm in all parts of
the country. Lord Wolseley proposes
that iho forces being raised by the

Tho Government expects tho total

CHRISTMAS TIME.
All over the civilized world Christmas time is a season of rejoicing, a
time when families gather together,
presents are exchanged aud the trials
and tionblus of everyday life are put
aside foi a dav or two. To many the
Christmas of 18119 will be an exception.
In many homes it will not be a merry
Christmas. Tbo shadow of war hangs
over the land. The British Empire,
while not iu danger yet, is boing seriously menaced for the first time since
the battle of Waterloo. The attitcde
of foreign nations is, on the whole,
not reassuring and no loyal, thinking
British subject will feel quite tbat
light-hearted happiness usually associated with the season.
_ This feelinR will be felt in tbe Colonies as well as iu the Mother Country. Tho danger is a common one, the
eagerness to share it is a common one
and the anxiety for the welfare of the
brave fellows lighting in South Africa
is likewise a common one. The bonds
of sympathy and unity between the
different portions of the Empire were
never more closely drawn than at prcs-
ett, aud the sad events which are
darkening this Christmas may bear
go-id fruit in forever doing away with
misunderstanding, and knitting oloser
to one another brother Britons all over
the  world.
A TRAITOROUS  ORGAN.
Wo print this rooming nn excerpt
from Mr, Tarte's paper, La , Patrie of
Montreal. Mr. Tarte either can't or
won't understand that the reason why
a Canadian contingent is being sent to
the Trausvaal is because Canadinns
know that the British Empire is being
attacked, and, since Canada is an important portion of that Empire, Ihey
wish to help in its defense. The help
is offered, not demanded or sold. Mr.
Tarte is sore .because he cinnot play
the same game in Quebec that Kruger
is playing in the Transvaal, and be is
piqued because the Government preferred to listen to the voice of Canada
rather than to the voioeof tue Minister
of Public Works.
The article concludes with a sneering reference to the "Empireon which
tbe sun never sets" being temporarily
chocked by the Boers. Wero the Empire peopled by persons of Mr. Tart3's
kidney, it would soon cease to bo an
Empire, even in name. In view of
Premier Laurier's speeches at the Juh-
ilen of 1807 and the present sentiment
of Canada without distinction of party,
il seems inconceivable that Mr. Tarte
should be allowed to retain his seat 111
the Cabinet. If Mr. Tarte coutimes
the way ho has begun he will raise a
storm of popular indignation which he
cau never offset rjy auy pnll he may
havo among French-Canadians; and
tbere is no evidence that oven the latter  generally favor his present course
Roberts' testimony was not needed.
Tbe reports of alleged disloyalty at
such a time were invented by unscrupulous politicians, who are a disgrace to
the Irish nation Hnd do not hesitate
to vilify their own kinsmen in order
to helo out thoir own traitorous
schemes.

Although they never should have been

made their removal a matter of some

no vigorous effort appear* to hare
heen made to onlleoD it. The looal
agenta objented nn the gronnrl that tin-
Imprint was Msorhitttnt, iiiirt as a ie-
suit of their notion ir was reclncid to
SliK). Mir.viv.'r, they Hill maintain
that this figure is too higb, and refuse
to tmy it. threatening to put on an
extra 16 p-r cent ou all policies should
the Council insist on collecting the
tax. Oulv ono comniiny, so far. hns
paid, and In this instance the money
was handed over under protest, Tlie
Mainland Underwriter's Association
have notified the Council thnt if the
license be enforced, the policy holders
will have to pay it. At Monday evenings meeting ot the Board of'Aldermen the matter was disnnsserl ami duly
reported in The Miner the following
morning
Mr. Hugh Cameron, who represents
several important insurance aompanics, was yesterday seen hy a Miner reporter, and askod to t tate the insurance
men's siile of tho ease. Mr. Cameron
said:
"We think $100 a year is altogether
too much to tax us for doing lm*inpss
here. Wo already pay a business li.
cense of $25 a year, and we carry very
considerable risks. Some people complain that onr rates are high, but they
ought to consider the risks taken. Nelson hss enjoyed a happy immunity
from lire, but should we have a good
blaze it is hard to say what onr losses
would be."
'What are your rates?" was   asked
"They   run    from   \y���   to  1%
per
The
cent," answered Mr Cameron,
lower rates are on detached residences
nnd die proof iiuiloing, and the
higher figures are demanded on greater
risks. For instance the Mock ot buildings on the north side of Baker 8treei
frcm Ward to Stanley, is charged l'-j
per cent., the highest rate that pre.
vails in Nelson. At the other side of
tbe street betwoen these points, the
rate is li per cent. Yon can readily understand why this is. If a tiro were to
break out in the McArthur building,
for instance, it would be hard to save
it, with the present fire appliances.
Frame buildings are a log risk. Yes,
the Ifi per oent. additional will he
charged it the Council insists upnn collecting the proposed tax. The insurance rates charged in Nelson nre as
low as is consistent with tho risk incurred, and tliHy will mohably be kept
up uutil better lire apparatus is supplied. We want n lire alarm system
bore, a good chemical engine, and a
paid, and well equipped tiro brigade.
When all these tilings are provided,
there is no doubt that thn insurance
companies would reduce the rate nt
piesent charged."
