NERflL BULLER
TO THE FRONT
He and His Staff are Reported to Have
Already Reached Frere.
MODDER RIVER BRIDGE IS REPAIRED
Artillery and Other Reinforcements Have Reached General
Methuen, Who May Move on Kimberley Shortly.
Comments by the London Press.
Londou, Dec. 8���(5 u. 111.1���General
Buller's arrival at Frere ia held to in-
dii'iito that nil tho preparations for- an
advance to tun relief of Ladysmith are
complete and that stirring news will
soon be received. The font that Lord
Methuen is announced as resuming his
command nt almost the sumo moment
is interpreted iu some quarters to
wean that battles will be fongbt sim-
ultanenuslv in Nntal and Spytfontein.
H appears doubtful, however, whether
(reiiernl Methuen's force is yet ready
for what will be a heavy encounter.
The construction of the temporary
bridge across Modder Kiver has entailed enormous labor and even now
the structure it is liable to be washed
away should a heavy storm come. General Methuen has been expected to
move his camp a mile in oonssquence
,il tho insanitary stato of the si renin,
ib " to the prironnce of the bodies of
dead liners. As the railway bridge
wns completely destroyed, he bus heen
compelled to give n considerable force
to   protect     his    oomrunnications.
A correspondent sent the interesting information regarding Boer tactics
that Commandant General Joubert bus
given general orders to reserve live until tho Britisli are within the close
range of 400 yards. At the Modder
liver battle the Free Stat'.* Bnrghers
l.u'.inie nervous and opened fire pre-
i i '.urely, thus tevealing their oppo*i-
tion and frustrating the Boers'   plans.
now employed sweeping doors and
washing paint in England is not sent
out to haudle the naval guns instead of
tbe hurriedly drafted men, unfamiliar
with these weapons, who have gone.
The Government has decided to dispatch to South Africa at the earliest
possible moment a cavalry brigade of
about 4,000 men.
Baron Loch,former Goveruor of Cape
Colony and British High Commissioner for South   Africa, was   interviewed
iu London last evening,   in   regard   to
his experiences with President Kruger.
Ho said tho   remarks  of the Transvaal
President  years ago   showed   that  he
contemplated  just the  state of affairs
i which has   now   arisen.    Mr.   Kinger
I even expressed a   desire to have a sea-
! port und said the   Transvaal hoped   to
liuvs ii navy some day,
The Times commenting ou Lord
Loch's reminiscences, says that they
proved np to the hilt the Dutch ambition for Dutch supremacy in Sonth Africa.
Modder Rivoi Station. Dec. il.���General Cronje, who is camping below
Spytfontein, about six miles north of
hero, lias beeu reinforced by H,000
Boors from Natal.
The now bridge over Hie Moddor
Kiver. which is being constructed hy
the engineers, is rapidly nenriug com
nletion. 3eneral Methuen is waiting
on this to get the artillery across,
when ho will be in condition to advance on the last stage to Kimberley.
Some Natal guns with lyddite shells
are expected here shortly. Methuen
' has beon reinforced by the lath Lancers and mure Held guns havo arrived, the latter with tents and stores It
is understood further reinforcements
will be here in another week.
Twelve of tho Biitisli wounded died
yesterday. A few cases of fever have
appeared,    probably   because    of    the
rnrpsea in   the   river.   Consequently
tllfl camp has heen shifted   hack.    The
1 oultb. of the troops Is excellent.
London, Dec. 7.���Tlio Daily Mail
publishes a dispatoh "torn Oaptain
Ralph, at Modder Kiver, who says:
"The Kimberley people are troubled
by the necessity of fejding 10,0(10 Basutos in the Diamond fields whom lhe
Boers rcfuso to allow to depart, and
who, should they fail to get enough
meat, would become restless. On
the night ot tho battle at Modder
Kiver, Kimberley, missing the ueens-
tiriiied signals from hero was in great
anxiety, fearing thut we had been defeated. The fact wns that we did not
use oui search light for feur the Boor
guns would wreck the apparatus, Five
hundred and thirly British wero killed or wounded in the battle here. That
number hns already beeu accounted
for, and the enemy's losses were probably much heavier."
London, Drc. n.��� The Morning Post
publishes an article warning the British public that "the disillusionment
already experienced respecting the
Boer forces in Natal is likely to be
repented en the western border,"
It snys thut men arc wanted everywhere and asks why the splendid body

London, Dec 7.���Tho Berlin correspondent of the Daily Mail says tho
German steamer Konig bus just arrived at Lorenzo Marques with the German mid Dutch contingents. She has

Manila, Dec. 7. ���Fiom indications
it would appear that Aguiualdo has
escaped to the north with a larger body
of troops than at tirst supposed. This
force is reported at from 2,01)0 to 8,000,
originally recruited in the northern
Provinces, and the men are reputed
to be good fighters. Accoidiug to advices received hy Otis, Lawton is coming south toward San Isidore, whence

THE FRENCH CHAMBER.
Old Relation Between Church and
Stntc Has Been Re-established.
Paris, Dec. 7.���In the Chamber of
Deputies today there was a lively discussion on the subject of credits for
the ministry of public worship. The
socialists opposed various credits. M.
Bernard, Nationalist, amid tumult
moved the separation of the church
and state. The Premier, M. Waldeck-
Houssenu, opposed   the motion   which
was defeated by '428 to 12SI votes.
M. Chunvier, Socialist, then proposed to suppress the entire credits, which
wus rejected by !IS8 nays, to 198 yeas,
nnd M. Waldeck-Rousse.tu's motion to
reestablish the credits for.tbe stipends
of tho Bishop und clergy which the
budget commission suppressed, were
adopted by 82U to 184 votes.
THE O'NEILL CASK
Mrs. O'Neill Distributes Her Belongings About the Country.
Lansing, Mich., Dec. 7.���Judge
Siootte, of Montreal, who Is taking
testimony in the case of Mrs Evangeline Clare O'Neill, of Cbioflgo, examined several witnesses heio today. It
was developed thnt Mrs. O'Neill visited here early in November nnd left
several pnrcels of goods ot tha resi-
cence of hor brother. She hud several
trunks with her, ono of which she
shipped to Baltimore nnd iiiiothni to
Montreal.    It did net appear, however,
thut she   left   any   great  quantity  of fVuncouvci will be considerable,
goods hero.
STRANGE OCCURRENCE.
Expected   Buck   With a  Largo   Army
in Province  of Cavito.
Manila, Dec. 7.���The expectation of
catching Aguiualdo has beeu practically abandoned and the probability
now is tbat he will turn southward if
he is not already there with his deslillation Cavite Province, his home, and
whore the insurrection began and
where it still bus its greutest strength.
The Filipino soldiers iu thut Province
have recently been showing increased
enthusiasm nud boldness and enptured
insurgents say that Aguiualdo is coming to join them with a largo army.
The sumo belief prevails among'the natives at Manila and elsewhere, that
Aguiualdo intends to make his headquarters in Cavite Province. There
are 8,000 insurgents before Imus and
Bacoor, keeping the Americans sleeping on their arms, nud nightly awaiting utt'iok. The Filipinos have several cannon.
The first mayor ot Imus under the
American regime, who ultimate!
deserted, is their lender in the uss:iults
und is ambitious to take the town.
Three soldiers of the fourth infantry
have deserted nud are now with the
enemy. Most of the inhabitants of
Imi.s are so strong iu their sympathy
with the insurgents that it is neees-
surv to use a part of the regiment to
patrol the streets and to prevent shoot-
iug from housis when an attack begins. The American force in t*ie
north have separated into ninny small
commands and aie pursuing bands of
Filipinos.
In two constituencies   in   Manitoba, 1 MANITOU.
Dauphin aud   Gimli, the elections are John Brown, Government,
deferred a week,   for   what   renson   it Robert Rogers, Opposition     84
1,1. Woods,
would be hard to say it one were to
stick to reason nnd the truth. In the
thirty-eight other ridings, elections
were held yesterday, with the result
that the Government is defeated by a
small majority. From an Opposition
standpoint the notable victory of the
campaign is Hugh Johu Mncdonald's
election over Attorney-General Cameron in South Winnipeg, a gentleman
whose personal popuhitiy is almost if
uot quite as great ns Mr. Macdonald's
own. Another crushing blow dealt the
Government is the defeat of the Minister of Public Works in Portage La
Prairie. It is evident from the re
turns thnt the Premier himself escaped
the humiliation of personal defent only
by reason of the gerrymander which
| regard for his safety suggested as an
net of prudence ou his part. A fourth
Minister Mr. McMillan, has hud the
mortification of seeing his old-time
majorities of two nnd three to one cut
down to a beggarly hundred or so.
The tie will goto the Government as
a matter of course, and of the deferred
elections Diinphin is likely to 1 ��� curried by the Opposition. Gimli is purely
Icelandic and therefore strongly Liberal; il will be safe to count it for the
Government, With the returns all in
the two parties iu the Home will stand
���Conservatives, ^H ; Liberals, 18, giving Mr. Macdonald the comfortable
majority of fo*ir, with the promise ol
healthy giowth.

A FARCICAL  BEGINNING
"A thousand Canadian miners, with
their wives  and  families,   uiv   being
crowded out of the Slocao by imported
Italians.    Come  and   help   un.   or we
perish,"   These   are   not  the  precise
words, but they   fairly  represent   tbe
substance  of   a   telegraphic    message
sent the Canadian  Premier at Ottawa,
under instruction and with the authority of tbo Miners' Union   nt   Sandon.
The   Government    responded   by   appointing a legal gentlemau  of Toronto
to visit the Slocan and ascertain   with
as little delay   as   possible   the  exact
measure of this outrage   on   Canadian
citizens, und   according to   the   emergency of bis   report   action   wonld   be
taken.    The   investigation   opened   nt
Sandon ou Wednesday.    The  Commissioner, Mr. Clute, would   uot   require
more than the evidence of this opening
day to   become  convinced    that     the
inquiry was obtained   on   the strength
01' false representations.    The  witness
whom he examined is  an active agent
of the Unions,   whose   duties   require
that he should he well informed ns   tc
all conditions affecting the mining industry of the Slocan.   He testified that
there were not more thun   five  or  six
hundred miners nil told.    He did   not
know how many of these were Btitish
subjects, but all   ot  them   were  not;
nor did he know   how   many   of them
had wives untl families,   although it is
a matter of   common   knowlodgo   that
the proportion is very small.   He knew
of only five or six aliens who had been
brought   in   to  rob   these hundreds of
their daily bread,   and   of   these   two
only   were   Italians.     Thn    thousand
miners dwindled at once   to half  thnt
numbor under formal and   official   investigation, and of   these   only an unknown proportion   were   British  subjects; a still smaller   proportion   were
men of families.    The  imported   Italians, according to the best of his knowledge, uumbersd just two.    The disgust
of the Commissioner may be imagined :
we are sure it is quite too hot   to  per-
mit of any description.
If Mr. Clute had come out to inquire
into the oppression of these thousand
Canadian miners only, he would probably have thrown up his commission
ut the end of the first day's inquiry
and departed for home. But it is understood the Government imposed
other instructions, and that ho is required to inquire into all the circumstances bearing on the present labor
(roubles. At any rate, the investigation is taking other directions. Tho
witness referred to was asked if the
miners could do as much work iu eight
hours as iu ten. He would not say
they could us a rule, but for himself be
would answer yos. He would not say
that the output of a mine worked
eight hours a day would be as great as
if worked ten. These are matters having an important bearing on the dispute between the mine owners and the
miners, but Mr. Olnte was nimble to
obtain any light on them from this
representative of tho Unions. The
wltuess was wise, in not answering lor
others; it was better to confine tha
misrepresentation to himself. Agriculture in Canada is a much older and
much more general industry than
milling. The farmers havo a busy
season. For generations they have
been working from sunrise to sundown in the hurry of the harvest,
many of thom and often from dawn to
dark. They do this because they know
they enn do more work in sixteen
hours thnn they eun in twelve, or ten,
or eight. If thoy could not, they
would uot try, for farmers ure much
too wiBe to slave for nothing. During
harvest their work is harder and morn
trying than mining. Thoy work under
pressure, and no manual laborers iu tho
world know hotter than thoy whether
us much can be done in B short dny ns
in a longer oue. What their judgment
is we see in their long harvest hours,
and it is lis unbiassed ns enlightened,
for thoy nro their own masters and can
do 11s they please, The man who snys
he can do as much manual labor in
eight bonis as in ten is either a fool,
111 which case he deserves to be pitied,
or a scamp, in which oase ho deserves

Not withstanding ils pretensions
;iucl impoitanae as a Province, no absorbing interest would huve been taken
in the general election in Manitoba
yesterday if it were not thut the result
wus supposed to give some indication
of popular feeling with respect to the
Federal Qovernment. The men at Ottawa kept un anxious eye 011 the returns last night, and they saw in
them for the lirst time tho mysterious
�� riting that warns them of their own
fate Inter on.
Few thought Hugh  John would win
out as  handsomely   :is   lib   has   done. I
Mr. Greenway wus   strongly entrenoh-
ed.    Hebud   thu prestige   of throe  or
four overwhelming   victories; he   had
a gerrymander; he  had _a registration j
system   thut   could   be turned to great
practical advantage j he was  supposed
to have   a   barrel, and   it  v. as known
that, the "mashine"   was   at   his   disposal ; yet in spite of all these au   Opposition lender who never had a seat in I
the Manitoba Legislature  hus defsuted |
his Government   by a vote of 2\ to Hi, !
with one riding a tie.    Tlie latter will |
go to the Government   ou the   casting
vote ot the  Returning-Oflicer.   There
are two   deferred   elections,    in   Dauphin, and in   Gimli, both   of wliich it
is possible   Mr. Greenway may   carry,
although   Dauphin at least may be regarded as doubtful.    In any case, however, lie is in   a   minority of two   and
there is a veiy large  probability   that
this will increase to four  by the   time
tho writs ore ull returned.
For the first time in its history Mr.
Greemvay's Government has been tried
on its merits. There were no adventitious aids, such as wild railway agitations and frenzied school questions.
He wns obliged to appeal strictly on
his record as an administrator of public affairs, and the people have declared against him. With all his failings
and shortcomings, he is a stronger
man in Manitoba than is Sir Wilfrid
Laurier. who will see in the loss of
that Province a most convincing argument for postponing the Federal geueral election until the lust  bell "rings.

Americans of the Croniu kind; but
Americans of the Cronin kind owe a
good deal to the er'itor of The Tiibune.
Had it not been tor the stand repoat-
etlly taken by the editor of Tlio Tribune, Americans would have beon

can pledge the veracity and stake tbe

those century-old traditions of the
British nation, which uccora equal justico and protection to alien and subject, then he was certainly a potential

OLD TIME TALKS.
A JOHNNI-OOME-LATELY WHO WAS
NOT HriEE.
John Houston a Tenderfoot���First Begiatry
Offloo Was at Bogir.town, and Not
Next the Tribune.
"I read with interest yonr odd tulka
with olil-timors," said an curly settler
yesterday to a Miner man. '' I observe
that onr friend John Houston taken
you to tusk ns a Jobniiy-Oume Lately,
I read tin arti :ie and it was substantially oorreot. .Tolin was a tenderfoot
in the days of which you speak. Ho
was bumming round town for several
months before his abortion of a niiws-
puoer appeared. Of course John knows
it all, and dors it all, but I would like
to renii'd bini that, his ambition nnd
egotism are nw.iy nut. Beforo Houston
over stmnk "Nolson, I pulled down inn
boat to Anderson's ofn>e In Bognstown
to record a olaitn. His ex-worship says
that tlie recorder's oflice was next to
the shack now occupied hy The Tribune. Ho is olT. The nnuiual oflice
of the recorder was nt Bogustowu until
Jndge Sproat brought it to Kelson.
These were before the days of John
Houston's advent. 'He is right about
the post olllce, and the fellow that told
yon it, wns at the oorner of Hall and
Baker Streets was off his liase. But
John is a sharper. Let me refresh bis
memory, Tbere was a oaynse raffled
hero on a certain occasion and the animal was docked-on a shroud and tied
np opposite the houso of John, There
was considerable talk abont the same
incident, wliich possiblv John will
remember. Then there was a httla
music box story whch went the rounds
in those days with which his ex-worship may ho familiar. But we havo
history without John Houston. As
1 buvo said ho was a tenderfoot in
those days, aud when be undertakes
to correct an old timer's story, John is
not in it, He thinks he can boss the
job, but John will get left. It is modern history iu which be iignres, and n
.'nrhuiiy Uomo-Lately can size liim up.
In view of the approaching elections
it might bo well to say a word or two
about John's career, as it is known by
we old-timers. I will dive you a hit
of hihtoiy in that point one of these
lino days which may possibly be read,
nble.
"No thank you, I never do. I was
one of those who first went into -1!)
Creek. The trail was then Ofened ill
the expense ot Bob Lemon. He ran a
store here in those riavs, and with his
usual enterprise cut the trail to bring
custom.
"I don't know who tho lirst pound-
keeper was���Jim iilaney or Paddy
Milos. But iu the early days the r.nly
thing that one had to einpnund was
tramp printers, I will tell you more
another dny."
The tramp who was brought before
Magistrate t'reuse on Wednesday, and
givoii two hours to clear out of town
was again in custody yesterday morning. He was given three mouths' imprisonment.
John Julesburg was yesterday married 10 Miss Aunie Rutherford". Miss
Rutherford, now* Mrs. Julesbnrg, is
receiving the ooneratulations of her
friends upon the change of name and
circumstances.
Mr. Redman who was recently appointed on tbe staff of the City electric light service, hns severed his connexion. It appears that he could not
get wiremen and was not disposed to
do the work himself.
The railway contractors who have
figured on lhe Balfour extensiin of the
Crow's ^est Pass, are si ill anxious to
know who the successful man is. They
have ficured pretty close, but thev
went to know who has got it.
Martin O'Reilly ic Co. havo the
name cf the firm very conspicuously
displayed on their window front.
Some purple think that the lettering
will interfere with window-dressing,
but Mr. O'Reilly says that is O. K.
Th" sum of $50 has been guaranteed
towards the expenses of a smoking concert on Satnrduy evening which win
i.e given for the entertainment of tlie
Coast contingent of the Boundary en
eiusion, at which tin- Nelson Minstrels
will give an entertainment.
It is stated that Mr. Bernard McDonald will take Mr. \V. A. Carlvle's
place ns consulting engineer for the
B. A. C. Mr. McDonald has been as
sociated with Mr. Whitnker Wright,
of the London and Globe, and B. A.
0 , ill mining operations in Idaho,Colorado and Now Mexico for the past SO
years.
A serious accident was narrowly
averted at the City wharf yesterday.
A horse harnessed onto a City laundry
wagon took fright nt the whistle of nu
incoming Bteamer and started off at a
pace more lively thau he is accus*omed
to dovelop. There was considerable
commotion for a while, but no serious
accidents to chronicle.
The Nelson Rifle (.'o. have decided to
hold their smoker on the SSna inst.
They have telegraphed Will Risiug to
let then' have tlio Opera House on that
night, but Will had not replied up to
yesterday afternoon. If he does uot
yield np the house, the local warriors
intend to uot the Odd Fellows' Hall or
the Hudson's Bay Co.'s new store for
the occasion.
Tuesday next is the day fixed for
tbo Dull Fete to be held by the Ladles'
Guild of SI. Saviour's Church, 'ihe
store lately vaented by Martin O'Reilly
��� Co., is to be used for tho occasion.
Although culled a Doll Fete, it must
not be supposed that th��ro will be
not' ing but dolls lor snle���many other
attractions are promised. Lunch will
be served from \2 to '2 nnd ten will be
provided during the afternoon. Presents have beon donated for prizes to
the successful candidates in clock and
bean guessing competitions. A (Ish
pond for the children and a literary
salad for (be adults will   prove sources
of amusement,

���������������������***������������������������������������������������������������������
At the second ordinary general meeting of the shareholders of the Dnncau
Mines, Ltd., held on the 14th nit., the
Chairman said in part:
"In regard to tbe properties and interests in propettieH which we possess,
ami wliich are detailed in the schedule
annexed to the repoit, we nre not in
a position to say much at this time regarding them, and for these reasons.
Onr time and resources have been so
mnch taken up with the proviBg end
development of the properties sold to
the CJueeu Bess and Granite Companies, and issue of theso companies, that
we have been unable to devote much
attention to the development of other
properties. Besides, our manager and
engineer, to whom the development of
these properties are entrusted, have
heen badly hampered by the labor
strike, and the former, who is also
manager of the Granite Gold Mines,
has experienced great diffloulty in
keeping a sufficient stall' of men on the
Granite Mines. The engineer has been
specially occupied with the development of the Granite and yoeen Bess
Mines When you conssider that these
gentlemen had to conduct the negotiations with the Nelson Poormau Company, which were both troublesome
aud prolonged, it will be apparent
that ever since Mr. Woakes arrived in
Nelsju, on the 28th day of July, their
time has been fully occupied. Now
that these negotiations bave been
brought to a successful issue they bave
more fully turned their attention to
the examintion of the other properties,
and will send reports to us from time
to lime. Our policy is to work these
properties for the purpose of proving
their value without expending larger
sums than are necessary or called for
by the particular circumstances or location of them. Work has been done
on several of these properties witb very
satisfactory results, and on one of
them, conveniently situated near the
Granite Mine, a vein has been discovered, 12 indies wide, thu assays of
which average $79, or nearly four
ounces to the ton. We are confident
that others of the properties will prove
equally valuable, and, generally, we
feel satisfied tbat the value we have put
upon this item in the balance sheet is
well within the mark. In regard to
the management in British Colnmbia
we are greatly indebted to the able administration oi our manager, Captain
T. .1. Duncan, and to our engineer, Mr.
Ernest R. Woakes. Captain Duncan
has been with us from the first, aud
we owe much to bis knowledge und
experience. He has devoted bis whole
time and attention to his duties,
which, as you will readily understand, are very exauting, and he was
mainly instrumental in currying
through the Poorman deal. Despite
the labor difficulties which compelled
other mines to remain idle, he has always managed to keep a large staff ol
men working on the Granite Mines,
and the last cable we had on the subject announced that work at all the
mines was proceeding satisfactorily
ou day waRes. We consider that the
company wsb fortunate in securing
Mr. Woakes1 sorvices, whioh have already heen of groat value to them.
Mr. Woakes is also ongineer of the
Granite and Queen bess Companies.
Mr. Drummond, our managing director, and Mr. Archibald, a director of
both our subsidiary companies, wont
out to B. C. with Mr. Woakes, and
both gentlemen rendered great assistance in the earlier part of the negotiations which resulted in the acquisition
of the Poorman Mines. As has al
ready been said the profit shown is
mainly represented by shares of other
companies, and even though these
shares are now of much higher value
than they have been taken at, we
think it would not be at all in the in
terests of the company to realise any of
them for the purpose of paying a divi
(lend. Onr policy all through has been
one of extreme oantion, and at this
early stage of our existence we think
it advisable to husband resources and
strengthen the position especially in
view of tbe present state of the market
and the labor difficulties, in B. 0. An
additional reason is thit we required
to retain our cash in hand both for
purchases then in contemplation, and
which have since been concluded, and
also for the development of onr properties and interests. We are confident
tbat this policy J will commend itself
to the shareholders as being much
more to their benefit in the immediate
future than wonld be the temporary
effects realised from the payment of
a dividend.''
