(SPECIAL TO THIS MINER.)
London, June 13.���A lengthy despatch forwarded to tho War Ollko by
Major Qanera] Knox from Kroonslaill,
presumably sent there by messenger,
reads as follows:
"Kroonstadt, June 19.���Have been
requested to forward you from Lord
Roberts the following despatch from
Pretoria at 8:08 a. m. today:
' "Pretoria, June 18,���Pretoria and
Johannesburg are perfectly quiet and
several of the inhabitants have expressed gratitude for the peace and
order.which prevails.
' "After surrendering the city Botha
retired to a place about IB miles  east ,
of the Middleburg Road.
��� "He had a small force at first, but I
during the lust few days his   numbers
increased.   Being so near the town, he ]
kept up tlie excitement in the country,
preventing the   Burghers  from laying
down their arms  and Interfered with
the collection of supplies, it therefore
became  necessary to   check him, and!
this occurred yesterday.
" 'He bad a very strong position, practically unassailable in trout, which
enabled bim io place the main portion
of his troop on his Hunks, which, as he
knew from former experiences, were
his vulnerable parts.
"'I sent French with Porter's nnd
Dixon's cavalry brigades and Button's
mounted infantry round by oar left, and
Ian Hamilton with Broadwood's cavalry
brigade, Ridley's mounted Infantry nnd
Bruce Hamilton's infantry brigade
round by our light.
" 'Both columns, met with great opposition. At about II in the afternoon I
saw two of Hamilton's infantry hiittul-
lioua advancing to what appeared to be
the key of the enemy's defence on their
left Hank. This was almost gained before dark and I ordered tho force to bi
vonuc on the ground they had won.
" 'l'ole-Cnrew, with his division, occupied our oent re. Ab I have explained
he could not nttnek, hut he gradually
hdvaucsd so as to support Inn Hamilton and when I left the Held he was on
the line held by the enemy's outposts
in the morning.
'"I bnrried haok to got news of Met-
hnen's movomants, on homing thnt the
Free Staters hnd taken advimtngo of
onr crossing the Vaal to liitorropt our
line of ooniunuiinntious. I sent Kit-
ohuner with snch troops as I could then
spare to Vredefort with orders to pnsh
south and commnnioate with Methnon.
who I knew had a 'cry onmpaot foioe
ln tbe vioinlty of Hnilhron. I also
despatched a spooial moimonger to
Mothnen Instrnoting him to pnsh on
at all speed to tho main line of the
railway.
'"These two officers mot ntVredelort
* Road Station on tho evening or June
loth. They marched yestorday to
Rhenoster River, whore Methuen
gained a complete victory over Dewet
and took possession of his camp and
Mattered bis  troop, in oil directions.
He and Kitohoner marohed today towards Kroonstadt.
"���We have conimeninated with Boiler, who will no doubt soon make the
presence of his force in the field fait.
Onr losses yesterday wero not, I trtist,
serious, bnt I deplore the death of tbat
gallant soldier the Earl of Airlie.
The only other casualties reported as
yet are: Seventeenth Lancers, Major,
the Hon. Lionel Fortescne nnd Lien-
tenant, tho Hon. C. Cavendish, both
killed.' "
General Knox adds that Kroonstadt
is quite Hiife.
Lord Roberts' despatch isregarded
as eminently satisfactory. It ends a
period of suspense caused by the
cutting of his line of communications
and indicates what a strong grip he
has on the situation,
Tho result of the battle between
Lord Roberts' forces and those of
General Botha is eagerly awaited
here, but it is believed that the Boer
commander will only complete his
retirement, whieli seems already to
have commenced.
The decisive victory scored by
Generals Methuen and Kitchener is
regarded to have more fur reaching
effect than any other recent action in
the Orange River Colony. General
Kitchener's progress south, it is believed, must have almost equalled the
records of all forced marches. Ills
detachment from headquarters was a
mere routine procedure ub the Chief
of Stall' is responsible for tbe line of
commoniciltiolis.
General Buller is rapidly fulfilling Lord Roberta' hope that he
will make his forces felt. A despatch from Jotibeit's Farm, "under
today's date announced the continuation of Buller's successful march,  the
occupation of Volksruat without opposition and the capture of a number of
prisoners, while the Boer casualties
yesterday arc reported to huve been
very heavy.
1 "A special despatch from Cape
Town report! that thu Boers recently
captured a train at Small Heel nnd
destroyed two miles of the lines. But
subsequent despatches show that (leneral Hunter routed all the Boers In
that neighborhood.
The Eni'l of Airlie, whoso dontu I/ird
Roberta deplores, was one of tbe most
popular members of the nobility and
coiiiiiiimiled the Twelfth Lnnoers. Lieutenant Cavendish was tbe son nnd heir
of Lord Obesbam, Major Eortescue
wns formerly an aide-de-camp to Lord
Seymour in Canada.
The following despatch has been received at the War Ollice from Lord Roberta! "KutslioBch, June 12.���Ill yestci-
day's engagement Methuen bad one
killed and eighteen wounded. Among
the latter is Lieutenant Carle, of tho
Twelfth Rutlallion of Yeomanry. On
June 7 the Derbyshire's Militia lost 80
killed and 104 wonuded, all of whom
were iu tho Yeomanry Hospital, whioh
was captured by the Boers and retaken
by Methuen."
(DV ASSOCIATED I'llKSS.)
London, June 14.���4 a.ni.���Tho despatch from Lord Roberts clearing up
situations at Pretoria and along tlie
communications stands alone. Military
observers, noting that no mention is
made of prisoners, assume Unit (leneral Dewet got away with his forces intact.
General Buller entered Volksrust
Wednesday, passed through Charleston
and encamped near Laing's Nek. The
tunnel was not much damaged. Both
endB were blown tip, but the engineers
think repairs can be effected in four
days.
The advance troops of General
Buller saw the Boer rear guard four
miles distant yesterday. It is estimated that 8,000 Boers wero withdrawn. The townspeople at Ermelo
counted 18 guns.
Three hundred Free Staters, released
from guard duty, have gone to join
President Stcyn's force in the eastern
part of the Orange River Colony.
General Rundle has sent notice to the
Free Staters that unless tbey surrender by June lfi.th their farms ami
other possessions will   be   confiscated.
President Kruger, according to a
despatch from Lorenso Marquez, keeps
a locomotive with steam up attnehed
to the car in which he conoeutrat9B
the exeontive offices of the Government, and intends to leave Mnobe-
dorp Boon and to ostablish tho Transvaal Oapital at Nel?pruit,in tho mountains in a fine defensive region.
It is again reported at Lorenso Marquez that the Boers bio advancing
through Swasiland. Lord Roberts, it
appenrs, has countermanded the order
given to Strathconu's Horse to land on
the coast und to penetrate to the
Transvaal through the   Swasi country.
Mr. Sohreiuer, the Premier, and his
oollengnea, resigned Inst night. Sir
Alfred Milner aceerted tbeir lesigua-
tioiiB.
General Buller's casualties to June
13 hnve been issued by tbe War Office.
They were 27 killed, 107 wounded, 3
missing.
The Portugese Government is again
reported ns fearing that the Boers will
enter Delagoa Bay when forced to retreat from Lydenburg. The Portugese
have only 1,600 troops iu East Africa
and would bo powerless to prevent an
incursion.

"Tbe Europeans and other troops

London. June 14,���The Chinese are
entrenching outside af Pekin to oppose advance of International column.
A despatch from Tien Tsin, dated
Tuesday, June Vi, says: "Tlie Chinese have guns trained on the American Mission and British Legation.
Two thousand Russian cavalry with
artillery have landed at Taku.''
A despatch from St. Petersburg sayB
that tbe Bhips of the Russian Pooific
squadron on tho active list, as well as
those at Vladivostock, have been
ordered to-proceed with quick desputoh
to Chinese waters.
The Foreign Ollice confirms the report of the eugngemc'it between troops
ofthe International column and the
Boxers ou Monday. It snys So or 40
were killed.
London, June 18,���In regard to the
reports that Japan is about to declare
war on China it was learned, by a
representative of the Associated Press
ut the Japanese Embassy today, that
the attitude of Japan in the Chinese
crisis is to co-operate loyally with
the European Powers. Iu the existing
situation Japan would not be willing
to see any single Power take the lead.
London, June 13.���The minder of
the Chancellor of the Japanese Legation at rckin is regarded as likely to
lead to serious complications, but no
decision has been reached iu Japan as
to what political measures will be necessary to meet the situation. Relative
to the reports that tbo Japanese Minister at Pekin is pressing for the recognition of a Japanese sphere of influence to include the provinces of Choking, Fokien and Kiang Si, it Is pointed
out Jnpan bus obtained n promise that
the province of Kicn should not be
alienated, while Kiang, situated at the
month of the Ynng Tse Kinug River, is
in the British sphere. Jupnn is uot
likely to take a step winch might be
distasteful to Great Britain,
Hong Kong, June 13.���Orders have
been issued to the contingent of British
troops assembled for service in the
north to start for Tien Tsin June 14th.
Major Morris, of the artillery, will be
command.
ed bb a bit ol    inspired   intrigue   designed to   create   the   impression   that
Russian sympathy is with the anti-foreign element it is pointed out that
Russia's course hns been innrked by
the utmost reserve, for, while it would
have been possible at nny time for her
to land large forces in China, the Russia force actually landed has been comparatively insignificant, mainly for tlie
leasou that Russia desired to be wholly
free from auy imputation of ulterior
motives. It was stated that the Belgian Secretary of the Legation at I'ekin
was probably Mr. Philip May, formerly with the Belgian Legation nt Wush
ington and prominent in social nudofli
cinl circles,

EARL   OF   AIRLIE.

plores, wns the eighth Kail of  his line. I
Tho title wns (treated in 1880,   Tho Earl |
was born in 1858 and  succeeded lo the i

Mabel   (jure, eldest  daughter   of   tbo
fifth Karl of A nan.   Their eldest  pon, |
Lord Ogilvie, born In 1803, succeeds to
the  title.   The  deceased   leaves   two
other sous and five daughters. I
Washington, June HI.���The State j
Department has heard nothing about
the reported killing of the American
missionary and Japanese Secretary of
Legation at Pekin officially. In fnot,
nothing has been heard from Minister
Conger sineo his cable last night, np
to the close of offloe hours. The news
of the killing of Iho American missionary caused a shock at tho Department, where it is realized that it adds
greatly to the gravity of tbo problem
awaiting settleniont by tbe United
States.
Definite official information was ro-
ooivod today, from Hie foreign offioe of
one of the most iniportnnt continental
powora, statiug that Tnimg LI .amen
had notified the Minister of that power
at Pekin that the Dowager Empress
would not object to the presence of
foreign troops in Culm's        -itory.
The Empress Dowagi .. acquiescence
in tho plans of the Powers is felt to
remove a threatened complication nnd
at the same time to give evidence that
the Empress Dowager is no longer j
yielding to tho anti-foreign clamor.
In official Russian quarters, tho ru.

Men Engaged In Street Work About to
Demand It.
It would nppenr that the City Council
has nothing whatever to sny iu regard
to the number of hours men engaged
in City wcrk shall work. Yesterday a
crew of 11 men were put to work lulling
out rook on Josephine Street. They began at 7 o'clock iu the moruiug nud
promptly nt 4 o'clock quit, declnring
that hereafter eight hours wns to constitute a day's work for meu engaged in
taking out rock for the City, So |far ns
The Miuer could learn last evening not
one of tbe City Aldermen was 'aware of
the intended action ot these workmen.
If there is nny understanding with any
City official in regnrd to the matter of
the eight hour day it E is witli Mayor
Houston. It is understood thut James
Wilks iB the man who engineered the
scheme to reduce tho working dny in
this manner. To a Miuer man last
night be claimed that the men were perfectly justified in quitting work at 4
o'clock, an hoiu^enrlier than in'tbe pnst.
He based this contention upon tbe fuct
that Rossland and some other towns
whioh be mentioned, bud uu eight hour
dny for men engaged In such work nnd
claimed thnt they were as much entitled
to the short hours ns the meu working
in niinos.
Tlie Miner wns informed last night
that there was a move on to curry the
matter still further and that all
engaged in city street work were
contemplating a demand for an eight-
hour day. This part of the affair
was current on the street yesterday
and caused a great deal of talk among
business men.
"If the money the City Council is
asking of us for street   work is to be
expended on the understanding that
the men engaged in the work arc
to have an eight-hour day,'"1 said n
businessman yesterday, "I nin afraid
there will be some difficulty in securing the passage of the by-laws. If
these demands nre not soon stopped
the laboring men will lind there is no
work for tllcm. If the wages were
reduced in proportion to the reduction
in the hours of work it would be u
different thing but the wages are to
stay where they are. The men who
have already struck for eight hours,
because they are working in rock,
are not miners and cannot be classed
as such. They were getting S.'i.:.'.', for
a nine-hour dny which is much more
than the ordinary individual gels for
a ten or twelve-hour day, and, to my
mind at least, quite sufficient for the
work they do. If these labor troubles
arc not   soon   settled   I  will feel very
much like pulling out of the country.
It seems as though every concession
is to be followed by u fresh demand,
A few months ago men on street work
had a ten-hour day. At their request
tho Council reduced this one hour,
making a nyie-hour day. Now then
comes the eight-hour proposition anil
the Lord only knows what will collie
next."

The Premier returned from the mainland tonight but he hud nothing to say
for publication.
The local papers print important, interviews with Robert Benven aud Ex-
Hpeaker Higgins on the crisis. Mr.

QovepiOt Melnnes. Raid/ '��� understand

power and appeal to tbe people.'
'' The electora have answered : ' We
do not want Martin's Ooveriiment.'
thus endorsing the viow beld by the
Leginlnture uud condemning His Honor's conduct.
"There is only one answer nnd one
course open for Martin and no doubt he
hns taken it. That is to resign to His
Exoellency, the (Iovernor General.''
Mr. Higgins was asked when he
thought the crisis would end ami
said: "Soon, if the members will lose
Bight of every other consideration save
that of expediting public busiueas."
"Do you think a strong ministry
can be formed ont of the new House."
"Yes, there is fine material In tbe
body without resorting to coalition
with tbe members who were elocted to
support the Premier."
"Do yon think the Governor will
resign?"
"Certainly. Have wo not tho statement of the Hon. Mr. Midlines that
His Honor has twice tendered his
resignation and tho ^further statomnnt
of Sir Wilfred Laurier and Sir Dnvid
Mills thut in calling on Mr. Martin

REDEEMING PLEDGES.
The Manitoba Premier, Mr. Macdonald, is redeeming bis ante-election pledges with :i fidelity that is
proving not a little startling to the
mass of the electors. At the time of
the prohibition plebiscite that Province voted yea by a considerable
majority. Mr. Macdonald, who is
not himself a prohibitionist, accepted the verdict and promised if returned to power to give effect to
the wishes of the majority to the
full extent of the constitutional
powers of the Legislature, The
temperance people had lieen asking
Mr. Greenway to do this, but under
one pretext and another he had always declined. There was also a
deep-rooted suspicion that the Liberals at Ottawa had been playing
with the question, and altogether
that party had been regarded with
a good deal of distrust. Mr. Macdonald frankly acknowledged that
the voice of the majority should prevail, and went to the country committed to that principle. Many did
not think him sincere. Total prohibition in a Canadian Province is
an extreme course, and it was
thought and said that when brought
to the test the new Premier would
funk the job. But not a bit of it.
He has faced the issue, and is giving the Province a measure of prohibition that will make it as dry as
the most ardent temperance advocate could desire���provided always,
that is, that his Act escapes the
hidden pitfalls that lie between the
Legislature and the Imperial Privy
Council. What effect it will have
on the future political fortunes of
Mr. Macdonald remains to be seen;
but it requires no prophet to predict
that three or four years of prohibition will work wondrous changes
in men's minds as to the wisdom or
the 'ightcousness of it,
Another thing Mr. Macdonald
promised to do was to abolish a
somewhat rascally Election Act
that our Mr. Joseph Martin had
devised and passed while Attorney-
General of that Province. 'Ihe Act
gave into the hands of the Government entire control of the voters'
lists, a control that enabled a Government not loo scrupulous in its
methods lo doctor the lists in any
manner most favorable lo itself.
Those who know them do not need
to be told thai a Government having Mr. Greenway and Mr. Martin
as two of its members was not likely to throw over its shoulder any
advantage of this kind. And by
way of parenthesis it may be said
there were alrendy indications that
Mr. Martin contemplated introducing his patent voters' list process
into this Province, if the people had
been guilty of the madness of confirming bim in control here. That
Act is being abolished, and an honest one substituted.
In connection with this and the
franchise generally, Mr. Macdonald, alarmed at the invasion of
Galicians and Dmikhohors, had
been maintaining in ante-election
days that good British subjects in
Manitoba should not bo left at the
mercy of these scourings of Europe.
in three years they would become
naturalised, and although ignorant
of tbe most rudimentary principle of
responsible government, would have
n- much to say, vote for vote, in
the   election  pf   Legislatures   and
Parliaments as those who were
bred and reared in the shadow of
it. Many of the Galicians are prepared for naturalisation now under
the law, and there is little doubt
Mr. Sifton hoped to have their aid
in carrying Manitoba at the next
Federal election, driving them to
the polls like so many sheep. Mr.
Macdonald regarded this as a
grave danger, as it undoubtedly
was, and he is now redeeming another pledge to guard against it by
framing an Act which refuses the
franchise to Galicians and DoukllO-
bors until they have been seven
years in the country and are presumably intelligent enough to understand the form of government
under which they are living. With
these evidences of political integrity
and ability, there will be a feeling
of very general satisfaction if Mr.
Macdonald shall decide to go up
higher and take charge of his party
at Ottawa, when the present veteran leader shall see fit lo retire.
It is unfortunate for the Post-
office people that the different mails
come tumbling into the City within
a few hours of each other. Before
one is distributed another is on top
of it. That is awkward and may
be annoying to the Postmaster and
his clerks, but good-natured, easygoing Nelson will be ever ready to
make allowances. But it is highly
desirable in the public interest that
some of these mails should be distributed more promptly than they
are. The mail from Vancouver,
for instance, which is usually an important one, arrives at 6:45 p. m.
Our mail to Vancouver goes out at
7:10 a. m. Unless the incoming
mail is distributed at once, it will be
impossible to answer a Vancouver
letter by return post, and in matters
of business it will often be necessary to do this. Indeed, the arrivals and departures are so arranged
under the new time card that this remark will apply to all the mails.
The Postmaster is not responsible
for the rush during the few closing
hours of the day; but in all postal
matters the accommodation of the
public is supposed to be the first consideration, and if the Postolhce staff
is not sufficient to cope with the
work the Postmaster-General should
be asked to increase it.

hut (hey were not granted, as fhe Bonrd
thought there were enough hotels in

The members of the Congregational
Church held a business meeting at
the home of J. Watson last evening.
Two new members were registered
and the various ollieers for the church
were appointed. It was decided, that
in order to sooner place a building
on the site for the new church at the
corner of Stanley and Silica Streets,
that an appeal be made to tbe sympathy of friends in Nelson for support.
A subscription list has been opened
by Mr. L.W. Cribbsand Mr.J. Watson
for  that   purpose.    This  list will be
"BLUE RIBBON TEA IS DELI0I0U?." I
circulated   by    authorized    collectors!
and it is hoped they   will   meet   with
kind and liberal support.
Om of the results of the regatta to
be held here during Nelson's Carnival
will probably be the purchase by the
Nelson Boat Club of one or more
niper bouts. Interest in rowing here
is on tlie increase and during the paHt
few days a large number of new
names have been entered upon the
membership rolls of the club. Nelson
has several fast men on the water
and with paper shells they could make
i good showing against any of the
���oast crews. Following the purchase
if the new shells application is to be
mode for membership in the Coast
Rowing Association, which holds
;innual regattas. This would insure
for Nelson n big regatta every few
years and would bring many hundreds
of people here to witness the' various
events.
William Bums, public school ill;
sp'iotor for division No. !i, has returned from an extended trip through the
Boundary, Nicola and Knmloops district. Mr. Bums said yesterday that
tlie schools hnd progressed wouderfuly
both iu work and discipline sinoe his
visit a year ago. He also said that the
attendance of the various schools hnd
increased over 10 per cent, and in
several of the larger towus, it had advanced much more than this. Several
new assisted schools will he established dnring the month of August,
throughout tho Kootenay district. At
several of the towns Mr. Bums held
the eiitrance examination   upon which
a number of the pupils wrote. Mr.
BnniB left Inst, evening for Greenwood,
where be will nlso hold examinations.
Here a large number of Jpupils will
write as tho ohildren of four schools
will be represented. June Ulst and
2!iid the examinations will bo held
in the Nelsou Publio sohooi, nnd at
the lirst purt of the following week
they will bo held nt Rossland. The
questions which hava been sot for these
exnraiuations under tbe direction of
the Frovincinl Government, nre of the
sauio stnudnrd as former years, and it
is thought that thore will be n large
number of successful pupils.
In a day or two work will begin on
tlie lowering of the sidewalk on Ihe
south siife of Baker Street between
Ward and Josephine. The stone
curbing is now in place along' the
entire block. The change In the
grade of the sidewalk will necessitate
changes in the fronts of the stores of
the Kootenay Butcher Company,
W. A. Thurman. the tobacconist,
the Wallace & Miller Company and
the Madden House. The Kootenay
Butcher Company and W. A. Thurman will lower their floors and the
latter will put in a large plate glass
front. The Wallace & Miller Company will put ill steps to their store
and Thomas Madden will tear down
the balcony in front of the Madden
House and put in a new brick front.
When the changes are all made Baker
Street will present a very much better
appearance.

There was nn exhibit of flue laces
aud embroidery yesterday afternoon at
the Hume Hotel, under tho auspices of
Mrs. Kenly, who has been holding
classes hero for the last two weeks. The
feature of the exhibit was the work
done by those who have been studyiug
nnder Mrs. Kenly, and in all about seventy-live pieces were shown. They
elicited the highest admiration from
all present and greatly redounded to
the credit of the makers. When the
exhibit opened the parlor was filled
with the class and their friends, to
whom Mrs. Kenly exhibited the vnrious
pieces singly upon nn easel, nnd nt tho
same time pointed out their merits.
During the nfternoon she nlso gave u
lecture upon the rose, nnd used the natural Mower to illustrate her remarks.

before Mrs. I. li. Hunt of l.inie Ridge,

to cure her of a fright ful case of stomach trouble and yellow jaundice. Ho
didn't count on tlie marvellous power
of Electric Hitters to cure stomach and
Liver troubles, but she heard of it,
took seven bottles, was wholly cured,
avoided surgeon's knife, now weighs
