URGES BOERS
TO SUBMIT
Paul Botha Issues a Sensible
Appeal to His Fellow
Boers.
South African Provinces Will
Form a Nation Always
Under Arms.
Capetown, Deo. 5.���Paul Botha,who
was _ member of the Orange Free
Stale Volltsraad for 'Jl yearB, lias issued a pamphlet appealing to his fellow country men to accept the inevit-
| ablo and recognize Hritish rule,
which, he says, is alone possible iu
South Africa, although great Britain's
���weak aud   spasmodic   history   in   the
Ipast whs a grave mistake, lie says
that he has repeatedly   but vainly ap-
< pealed to Steyn and Dewet to eoase
fighting. He bitterly attacks Steyn.
He predicts that Britons and Boers
will eventually live peacefully together   under the British Hag.
Johannesburg, Deo. 4.���Governor
McKenzie made an important speech
_t a bauquet given by the Caledonia
Society last night in honor of St. Andrew's Day. There was a brilliant
gathering, including representatives
if tho army and administration. Gov-
iroor McKenzie said   that   he  would
illow the custom observed in many
the Colonies of the   Ministers mak-
ig a forecast of the Government's pol-
y at banquets given on St. Andrew's
���'Bay. Ho declared that the decision
had been taken that all British subjects of suitable age should in the fu-
"ture bear arms.     .    	
He expected that th, elli.ons of Johannesburg on returning to the district, would make a force of 30,000
men, which would be named the Rand
K> ies. This force would be able to
defend the district against any possible hostile force in South Africa.
This was In the interests of the people, who would thus be enabled to re-
Kiiine- industry without, fear of interruption. A probable result of the war
would be that the principle of a nation of arms against a great standing
army would be aoceptod throughout
tbe Empire. Ue believed that the
beneficial training, physical development, and Independence of the race
would not Interfere with itB commercial and industrial progress. Germany, with conscription, was making
a great industrial advance. The
plan be mentioned was not conscription but voluntary training. Messrs.
Buskins, Dunn and others referred to
the war as inevitable, saying it resulted from the irreconcilable conditions in South Africa, which were due
to the Boers having diverged from
their peaceful progrosB of 50 years.
The Hague, Dec. 5.���During the do-
bate on the budget in the second
Cnamber hero today the Premier, Dr.
Plerson, deolared he could not at
present foresee the physchological
moment when the Netherlands would
be able to propose arbitration between
Great Britain and tho Transvaal.
HE MUST DISBAND.
Shanghai, Doc. 5.��� An Imperial
edict deprived General Ting Fu llsa-
lng of his rank and titles but permits him to retain commund of the
troops. Ho'has been ordered to disband live thousand and to withdraw
to the Province of Kan Hu with tho
remainder. The ediot deprecates his
ignorance and roughness in dealing
with foreign affairs,, but it Is not regarded as a serious Import. A recrud-
escnee of tho southern rebellion Is reported ', the Tarangs arc said to bo got-
tlng fresh suppllesof ammunition and
to be preparing out breakB In the
Provinces of Kwang Tung aud Kwang
Su. Native papers express tho belief
that the oourt Is preparing to return
to Pekin. Orders have boen issued to
send the rice tributes thero instead of
sending it to Sian Ku.
STILL DRAGGING ALONG.
Pekln, Dec. 5.���Ab was oxpoctod
the meeting of the foreign consuls to
day did uot rUHtilt In any definite con
elusion owing to the lact that not
all of the Governments have notified
their representatives as to the form of
the preliminary note to the Chinese
plenlpotontarles.   Mr,    Conger,    the
United StateB Minister said after the
meeting: "Apparently it is the desire
of ull to arrive at a satisfactory conclusion. I believe., the next meeting
will be tho last, but not be called
until evciy minister has received definite instructions covering all contingencies. Personally, I am satisfied
with the result of the proceedings to
day."

not a bit of truth in the reports that
tbe new boat will embody striking
novelties, a cup challenger Is scarcely
tho kind of a boat a designer would
choose for experiments. The Shamrock II will be like some of the other
big boats in existence. Whatever novelties there are will be in construction
details."

London, Dec. 5.���John Luke Hely
Hutchinson, Fifth Earl of Donogn-
mor, at ono time assistant commissioner In eastern Roumlay, dlod of
paralysis In Loudon today,
Did Not Present His Charges
to the Committee This
Morning.
Another
Effort  to
Secure
His Presence to
Be
Made.
Aid. Arthur, Irvine and Hall met in
the Police Court room at 11 o'clock
this morning to begin the investigation of the charges made by Mayor
Houston against Fire Chief W. J.
Thompson, that he has neglected his
duty and has certified to incorrect pay
rolls. The Mayor was notified of the
meeting and should have been present
to substantiate his charges and to
lend all assistance possible to the
work of investigating, but he did not
turn up. He crawfished, nc may
have had some ground for his charges,
but his action of this morning would
indicate that he is afraid of the consequences of his latest rash action.
Cbiof Thompson was there prepared to
do all in hiB power to help the Aldermen out. He has not yet been notified officially that charges of any ua
turc have been made against him, but
was present at tho meeting of the
committee this morning because verbally invited by them. The committee looked over Chief Thompson's pay
roll book, which he took with him,
and found no irregularities. Adjournment was then taken until II
o'clock this afternoon when another
effort is to bo mado to secure the presence of the Mayor. It is the duty of
His Worship to lay all the evidence in
his possession before the committee
and to prove, if he possibly can, tbe
charges he has made. If be does not
do this ���well there's no use trying to
guess at what will happen then. The
people of Nelson will stand for most
anything from His Worship. They
will forget all about it in a few days
and friendB will say its "John's way"
and smile and vote for him if he ever
runs again.
STILL A SECRET.
Curiosity as   to   the   Ownership of   a
British Yacht.
London, Dee. 5.���rhorc is a persistent rumor   that   the inysteriouB   new
yacht building at the Henderson's is
for the Prince of Wales. It is learned,
however, In spite of Lord Lonsdale's
denial, that It is more probably the
order of Emperor William of Germany. Which ever it is of these Royalties, it can be said that tho Prince
of Wales will be on board the new
craft when she sails in thu Shamrock
II.'8 trial races on the. Clyde, in these
trials the new Shamrock will have as
trial horses not only this new royal
yacht and the old Shamrock, but also
tho Sybarita In addition. Thero will
be a great race off Cowes between
those yachts and perhaps the Meteor
and others, for which the Prince of
Wales or Emperor William will give
a cup. The Prince of Wales Is taking
the keenest Interest In the new challenger, lie intends to personally test
lu-i sailing qualities before she crosses thu Atluntlc.
The now yacht bcfjiff built at the
Hendersons' the Identity of whose
owner is so closely conceded is chiefly
interesting from tho fact that the Instructions given to George L. Watson,
who is to design her, wore to do his
work in such a manner as to make
her the most useful trial bout for the
Shamrock II. The real object of Sir
Thomas Lipton's recent visit to the
Hendersons was to compare her lines
with those of the new America's cup
challenger whirl* is being built at
Dennis.
No more generous tributo to the
American jockey's horsemanship could
bo written than appears in tlie Sporting Times over the signature of John
Corlctta, one of the best racing authorities In England, himself a horse
owner. He points out that no less
than live Americans lire Included In
the first ten winning jockeys of the
year, and says It would have been six
if Maher had come over curlier. He
Continues: "Then' Is no sii.li conservative body anywhere ns the English
turfmen and we hnve said enough to
show tho amount of prejudice the
i American jockeys huve hud to  con
quer. There is one thing, however,
that the English turfmen, thoroughly
believes in, and that is 'getting
there.' This the Americans have dono
with a ve.igeance and it is sheer merit whloh has secured them the position they now hold even in England."
DISASTROUS WRECK.

ELECTION
TOMORROW
All Parties are Confident of
Success for Respective
Candidates.
Indications Point to Victory
for the Liberal-Conservative.
The Miner's political man Interviewed leading men in tbe Conservative. Liberal and Labor parties this
morning and has arrived at a conclusion in regard to the outcome of tomorrow's polling. It is quite apparent that this district is to have three
representatives In thu Dominion
House. The Conservatives are sure of
the. election of Mr. John McKane.
The Liberals say tbat Mr. Galliher
will surely be elected and Mr. Wilks
and others are equally confident of the
success of Mr. Foley. Therefore all
three candidates are to be elected and
everyone Is to be quite satisfied.
But if only one man Ib to be.elected
Tbe Miner inclines to the belief that
John McKane is tho gentleman's
name. Mr. McKane was the last man
of the three in the field but he has
put up a wonderful fight, has succeeded In enthusing his supporters and
from advices received from all parts of
tbe district it is quite apparent that
tbe Conservative vote will be out tomorrow and will go solidly for tbe
Conservative candidate. With tho
split in tho Liberal ranks because of
Mr. Foley's candidature it should not
require more than about sixty per
cent, of the Conservative vote to elect
Mr. McKane and this he will surely
get. There ara In the ���entire district
about 13,000 votes Not more than
10,000 of these will be polled, perhaps
not iiio'i. than ii.ooo and the man who
gets 3,500 votes Is going to come very
olose to  election.
If, by an chance, Mr. McKane should
fall,It is hard to say which one of the
two remaining candidates will suc-
ceed. Indeed, there never has been
an election In the.dlstrict In which
forecasts wero more difficult to make.
Polling In Nelson will take place in
tho rooms on Vernon Street which
have been used ua ooramitteu rooms by
Mr. Galliher. The polls will open at
U o'clock und will close at 5.
Last night the Labor men had a big
meeting, addressed by Mr. Foley and
others. It was very successful. Tonight at 0:15 the Liberals will rally
lu thu Opera House and listen to Candidate Gallihci, Aulay Morrison and
others. Tomorrow Mr. McKane will
be electod.
Persons who have votes In the Slocan Riding and who will be in Nelson
tomorrow can vote at the NewltnR
House cioss the river from the City
dock.

A vote for McKane is a rebuke to

of fact Mr. Galliher signed two petitions against tlio enforcement of the
Eight-Hour law, one as a business
man and member of a mining company, and the other as Clti.en Galliher, described as a barrister. Mr.
Houston knows this well; why imitate the disingenuousness of Mr. Galliher, if lie thinks it necesBary to refer to the subject at   all?
CHOOSE WISELY.
The citizen who believes that it is
a matter of indilference which candidate may be elected has made the
world no wiser or better by being
born into it. If we wero all to act on
the strength of such a belief, what
political morality it may be out boast
to possess would soon degenerate into
political profligacy. There should be
no such indifference in any election,
and we are very certain that except
among the very ignorant or the very
profligate it will not prevail to any
extent tomorrow, when the electors of
Nelson will be called upon to select
one of three candidates to represent
us at Ottawa,
There are good practical reasons
why it should not prevail. All will
not agree as to thoir sufficiency, and
it is to this difference of opinion we
owe that healthy condition of the
public mind whloh keeps our rulers in
check. Mr. Foley, for instance, has
a large following, composed exclusively of a class, who believe with all sincerity that he would be the best man
of the three to elect to Parliament.
That they take a narrow and selfish
view of the matter does not in tho
least diminish the sincerity of it.
Citizens inlluenced by other interests
and with broader vision believe amis-
take would lie mnde by electing Mr.
Foley. It is not expedient now to go
into the principle involved; a practical consideration that will appeal to
the every-day experience of each one
of us will better serve the purpose.
The Miner has already said, and re
peats, that the election of Mr. Foley
would be an intimntion to all concerned that Southern Hritish Columbia had abandoned itself to
Socialism. Sucli an impression,
while it might not prove fatal, would certainly have a most injurious effect on the material development of this portion of the Province.
Capital is necessary to the expansion
of our mining industry, and capital
will not be attracted to a region in
which Socialism is rampant. The
two ure as antagonistic as fiio and
wuter. The Interests of Yale-Cariboo
would suffer severely through the
election of Mr. Foley.
Among houest men, Who desire that
our politics should bo marked by
the same rectitude of prlnciplo und
purpose us the personal conduct of the
individual citizen, the present Liberal party is a discredited one. Tho
constituency can gain nothing by electing the candidate of a discredited
party. Its leaders havo ubuudoned
their principles and broken their
pledges, In their eagerness to obtain
office. That is writ so large in the
history of tho past few years that it
cannot be necessary to Insist upon
It. iiut aside from all this,there is a
practicul consideration which should
prove fatal to Mr. Gallihei, the candidate of the party led by Lauricr
and Tarte. We read rainy of a dem
onstration lu tlie French Chamber
that was exceedingly unfriendly to
Great Britain. When we sent a con
tingent against the semi-civilised
Hoers of eSouth Africa, Tarte was lios
tile and Lauricr reluctant. The feel
ing in France is bitter, and is dully
growing so much worBc that uny moment something may occur to provoke
hostilities. In the event of war with
Franco, which cun almost be said to
be imminent, complications may
arise to place the Mother Country in a
critical position and in sore need ol
the help of her Colonies. If there
wero so much difficulty and trouble
In sending a contingent against the
Hoers, with Laurier nnd Tarte
power, what might wo not expect if
the enemy were Franco'.' It will be
better and safer to send to Parliament
a man who will give strength to the
Oppobltlon.on whom loyal Hritish (an
ndiiiiis can rely, and that mini le Mr.
McKane. It dues make u difference,
therefore, whom we select, anil the
wise and thoughtful citizen will so regard it,
Nelson docs not elect the member
tomorrow, but tlio vote of Nelson may
determine the result. It is a good
thing to remember in elections that
every vote counts. There are enough
Conservative voters in Nelson to give
Mr. McKano a majority, and with a
majority from tli is town his election
is regarded as absolutely certain.
There are many disaffected Liberals
who will vote for neither Mr. Galliher nor Mr. Foley, and there are ulso
a respectable number of independent
voters���voters thnt are not bound to
either party. All of these should, and
doubtless will, go to Mr. McKane. It
costs little trouble to attend at the
polls, and every good citizen who has
a vote should turn out and mark a
ballot for  the   Opposition   candidate.
The Miner yesterday presented to
Its readers a fairly full report of President McKinley's Message to Congress. A paragraph referring to the
Alaskan boundary was of special interest to Canadians. The modus Vivendi of October a year ago has worked satisfactorily.but tbe President recognizes that no temporary shift will
serve in a case of thut kind nnd that
a permanent settlement should be
made as soon ns possible. One cannot
but wonder why the simple expedient
of arbitration docs not commend itself
to our American friends. They were
violently in favor of that principlo
when the disputo was on between
Great llritain and Venezuela, but
when the case is their own they grow
suddenly distrustful of it. Do they
want more than an honest interpretation of the letter and spirit of the
treaty of ISL'.'i is likely to give them?
It is difficult to account for their reluctance to resort to arbitration ou
any other theory.

POSTMORTEM.
Rubble tipped liis .hair buck from
e ticket-office stove in the station
_, read the express-agent the follciv-
g from the Arizona Arrow, to show
e_iat the new linotype machines are
bing for western journal ism, and to
Bdicate in what manner the town-
Ik amuse tliimiselvo-: "A rare treat
iWoman'a relief corpse celebrates.
e woman's relief corpse gave a box-
gupper last night at the Methodist
Bunch south. An excellent piogram-
me was rendered by Hue ladies of the
corpse anil thoir children and a number of old soldiers. The lirst tiling on
tlie programme was a song, 'There's
a tot time in tlie old town,' by a number of the corpse ladies. Supper waa
served in boxes which were auction-
Hj Col. Cano said he would take his
Bins trip to the Klondike to remind
film of friends far away, and particularly of the woman's relief corpse. He
made a resplendent address, with wo-
men as his text, and said it was a
grand thing for this nation to havo
them today in the form of a relief
corpse. He closed by saying that 'it
takes the woman's relief corpse to
make things go, and long may it

TENDER   RECOLLECTIONS.
The balloon was tugging at its rope
and bouncing about clumsily in the
puffs of wind. A widow stood regarding it with streaming eyes. She was
alone, but a crowd gathered abont
heri attracted by her untimely tears.
Stie sobbed for ten minutes, while
tb* crowd restrained themselves, but
at last an old gentleman whose long
white hair and saintly face declared
his oelief that he was privileged to
thrUSt himsolf into anybody's business, stepped forward and said :
"Ifadauio, why do you weep? Why
these tears?"
The woman snulllcd loudly and
then replied:
"It's the balloon."
"But," queried the old gentleman, "why does the spectacle of a
balloon cause you to weep? Did a loved son once perish as an aeronaut?"
"No," replied the weeper, "it
wasn't a son,   it was my husband."
"Ah.your husband was killed while
ballooning?"
.''No, be wasn't; my husband died
in his bed, but ho weighed twenty-
dfae stone, and that jumping balloon
reminds me of just how Henry looked
the last, time I saw him dancing.
His figure was just like that!" And
tho widow again burst into tears.���
Pearson's Weekly.
WHY HE DIDN'T PLAY.
A showman recently advertised a
"piano-playing elephant," and drew
a crowd for the first performance.
After some preliminary remarks describing the talents of the beast and
his education, the elephant was led
into the ring. He stepped up to the
piano, ran a scale, stopped, lifted his
trunk and ran bellowing from the
tent. The showman stepped forward,
not a whit embarrassed.
"Ladies and gentlemen," he said,
"an unfortunate occurrence prevent;;
the intelligent animal fiom continuing the performance. 1 am sure thnt
you will all respect his reason for this
abrupt conclusion. He has just recognized his dead mother's teeth in the
pi-no keys."���Tit-lilts
EXTREME CON SERVATISM.

��� HE MAY CALL AtlAIN.
Sam l'easley was an odd character.
He Used to go and sleep in the graveyard���said it was" better than sleeping out-doors, anyway." Judge Saw
yer once built a new tomb, and Sam
took the first night after it was done
to sleep in it. Meeting the owner
next day, he called out: "Hello,
Judge! I laid in your tomb before
you did." "Did you really, Sam?
Well, did you see anything?" "Noth-
Ing much. Toward morning the devil
Mme along and looked In, but be see
'twa'n't Sawyei, so he went away

H MRS. STOWE AND THE MONK.
��� One of the best stories that Dr.
Wise told related to the time when
Dr. Henry Ward Heecher, Mrs. Stowe
���nd he took   dinner   together.    After
dinner Mr. Heecher told Mrs. Stowe
that her Dnole Tom's Cabin had been
translated into Italian by a monk;
that a letter full of adulation had
been received from him, and lie .stated
that if he eould kiss tlio woman who
wrote the book be could die happy.
Mr. lleeoher then added: "Well, I
sent him a picture of you, Mrs.Stowe,
and nothing has been heard of him
flinee."

Leod of Nelson, wns married to Mr.
Harry Wright, the well known mining recorder at tbe Government offices
in this city. The Kev. II. S. Ake-
tiur.st officiated at the ceremony nnd
the Church was prettily decorated
with evergreens and holly. The pews
reserved for the family were decorated
with holly and white ribbons. Carnations were used to great effect on
the altar. Promptly at twelve o'clock
Miss McConnon, who was at the organ, began the wedding inarch and
the bride entered the church upon the
arm of her brother, Mr. Harry Mc-
Leod. She was preceded to the altar
by the ushers MessrB. F. Irvine, Perry
Wright, Dr. Stoddard, antl Dr. McLennan. They wore black cutaway
coats nnd light trousers with bouton-
nieros of carnations. Following them
was the maid of honor, Mrs. Herbert
Irvine who wore a handsome gown
of white satin trimmed with chiffon
and carried a bouquet of carnations.
Tne bride wore a beautiful trained
gown of white satin, trimmed with
chiffon and a veil of white tulle. She
also carried a bouquet of carnations.
At the chancel steps she was met by
tho groom accompanied by bis fiest
man, Mi. Herbert Irvine. During the
ceremony appropriate music was played by Miss McConnon and when the
final words had been pronounced
again tbe wedding march was heard
and to its strains the happy pair passed down the aisle and wore driven to
tlie bride's home where a reception
was held for their intimate friends.
Many beautiful presents were received
by the bride and alter a journey south

SINCLAIR RELEASED.
Aid. Will Irvine So Informed From
Ottawa.
Aid. Will Irvine is to be congratulated upon his success in securing,
through Lord Minto, the release from
the Provincial penitentiary of J. H.
Sinclair, implicated in tho lirewster
defalcation; at Trail, This morning
Aid. Irvine received the following letter from the Under Secretary of State
at Ottawa:
"Sir���With reference to an application from yourself and others for the
exercise of clemency in the case of
one J. II. Sinclair, I am commanded
to inform you that bis Excellency, the
Governor-General, has been pleased to
order that this convict be conditionally set at large, in accordance with
the provisions of the Ticket of Leave
Act, lsil'J. Tho warden of the British
Columbia penitentiary is this day instructed accordingly, I have the
honor to be, etc."
Sinclair's wife is in Nelson at the
present time and the husband is expected to arrive here in a day or two.
SAW DEATH   NEAR.
"It often made my heart ache,"
writes L. C. Overstreet, of Elgin,
Tenn.. "to hear my wife cough until
it seemed her weak and sore lungs
would collapse. Good doctors said
she was so far gone with Consumption
that no medicine or earthly help could
save her, bnt a friend recommended
Dr. King's New Discovery and persistent use of this excellent medicine saved lu-r life. " It's absolutely guaranteed for Coughs, Colds, Bronchitis,
Asthma and all Throat and Lung diseases. 50 cents and 81.00 at the Canada Drug Sc Book Co. Trial bottles

PRACTICAL PATRIOTISM.
Ladies of Canada:
Inter-mutual trade is the true basis
of the federation of the Empire. So
far as possible, one colony should
consume tbo produce of another.
Canadians and India and Ceylon
tea planters fought side hy side in Africa. About lo pur cent of the latter volunteered for the war.
The Teas of Ceylon, and India are
the Lest and purest the world produces. Already the Black Teas of
those colonies have captured the Canadian market.    The Green is now fast
I displacing  Japan's colored    article.
[Quality and sentiment, unite to recoin-
��� mend it.    Canadian ladies who   drink
i Japan    tea   should   help   the    British
planter by drinking Ceylon green tea.
Hlue   Hibbon,     Monsoon   and   Salada
packets die ready for   you.    Colonist.
A GOOD THING.
German Syrup is tbe special prescription of Dr. A. lloshee, a celebrated German 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, removing, as it does, the cause of the alTcc-
ton and leaving the parts in a strong
and healthy condition. It is not an
experimental medicine, but has stood
the test ol years, giving satisfaction
in ovory case, which its rapidly increasing sale every season confirms.
Two million bottles sold annually.
Boscbe's German Syrup was introduced in thn I'nited States In 1S(!S,
and is now sold in every town and
village in the civilized world. Three
doses will relieve any ordinary congS.

evidently an eye for detail, in his
article in the Mall describing the
effect of Lord Roberts' advance upon
Pretoria on the prisoners at Watervaal

peasant, prisoner and warder, joined
in a universal scene of congratulation,
in a mutual expression of esteeu and
a general glass of Robert Hrown's

the lot of the prisoners who were able

prices.
Handkerchiefs
