SANDON DEVASTATED
An Appalling Fire Lays That Thriving City
in a Waste of Ruins in a
Very Few Hours.
Only a Few Houses are Left Standing and
Practically the Whole Population are Homeless
(Sl'UC'IAI.S TO THK  niM.lt.>
Sandon, B. O, via Three Forks,
May 4.���Nearly 1,300 Sandon residents
are homeless today and wbat was Sandon yesterday is now a heap of ashes
and smouldering rains.
Tlmt whioh has benn predioted sinoe
tbe days when Snnduii began to preseut
the appearanoo of a thriving town has
ocooned and .fire has swept away almost every bnilding. It oaino at midnight and at 7 o'olook this murium:
the roin was oomplete. That everyone escaped is almost a miracle. Wiib
tbe buildings so olose together and the
main street so narrow and all away
down ln tbe bottom of a gnlch, the fire
burned as in a furnace. It swept in
both directions from the placo in
whiob It originated, and, in older to
esoape it, hotel goests and residents
had to hnrry away witbont even their
personal offsets, and many nf thnn attired only in tbeir night olothes. Sov-
eral, in an effort to save n portion cf
theii belongings, were slightly mimed,
bnt so (ar as is known, up to date,
none were seriously burned. It is oos-
sible, however, that when the ruins
are searched, one or two charred remains may be found. No one has yet
been reported missing.
The fire originated in the Spenoe
Opera House, where a company had
produced "Her Atonement" on Thursday night. About 12:80 a. in. the
flames wero discovered in tbe rear of
the bnilding and the alarm given.
Tbe Are department and many volunteers responded promptly and everything posaiblo was done to obeek tbe
flames. But they sprend rapidly in
both directions, and tbe fight was a
useless one. In the narrow street
muoh ot tbe boss was destroyed, buildings falling npon it, and at n o'clock
the last bit of hose in nse was buried
beneatb a fallen wall and the firemen
had nothing then to do bnt watch the
flames as they rapidly licked r.p all
tbat stood in the path of the devouring
element.
At daylight Sandon was gone. On
the Cody road the women and children
bad congregated. Thero were little
ones with nothing on but the gowns in
whioh they were put to bed and
women little better off. Fortunately
tbe night was mild and there was lit.
tie suffering beoause of the lack of
wearing apparel. The men, many of
them totally mined, were congregated
about the smouldering remnants of the
town. They wero braver than tho
women and children but almost as
much exoited.
Sandon is 3,400 feet np in the mountains, and being built in a gnlch between two mountains. A fire started
there was almost bound to destroy the
whole place. There was really but one
"treat, a long thornngbfare, so narrow
tbat a man standing on one Bide could
almost clasp hands with a friend on
tbe other side. The houses beiug so
close together, and being almost without exception of wood, there was no
hope lor the town once the lire got
headway.
Sandon was one of tbe most remark-
able mining towns in tbe world.   It
was started as a result of a freeze out.
C. B. Wright held the lownsile of
Threo Forks about five years ago. As
a thriving town had grown up he refused to sell any lands. Two men,
named Harris and Kelly, determined
to beat Wright. They had hardly a
dollar in tho world, but went further
into tbe mountains and started in this
gnloh as two minors. Tbey put np
two or three frame building nnd started to boom tbe new town of Sandon.
So veil did thoy advertise it and so
rioh did the mineral district turn out,
that in a few months Sandon was a
hustling mining town of over 1,000
people, while Threo Forks degenerated
into a hamlet. Since then Sandon,
with mining and gambling, has always been a warm town. Everything
was wide open. Now it is literally
wipod off the earth.

J. W. Tierney, O.P.R. tioket agent
at Arnprior, Ont., whs was in Nelson
a few weeks ago visiting his uncle,
W. P. Tieiuoy, died at hiB home yesterday of smallpox. Mr. W.P. Tierney
received a message last night to that
effeot. Alter leaving Nelson Mr. Tiei-
ney went to the Coast, leaving there
for tbe East abont ten daya ago. He
was on the same train with the mau
Finlayaon, who died of smallpox at
Winnipeg. Hi waa siok when he
reaohed home and was treated for several days for a severe oold. A doctor
was oalled from Ottawa and immediately declared the patient to bo suffering from smallpox. Nothing could be
done for him, however, and he died
yesterday. Many Nelson people will
recall having met Mr. Tierney during
bis stay here about  two weeks ago.
GREENWAY SPEAKS
Wiuuipog, Man., May 4.���A oonvention of the Liberals of Lisgar was held
at Morden yesterda). Ex-Premier
Greenway made a strong speech condemning R. I.. Richardson, of the
Wini ipeg Tribune.. Mr. Frank Will-
iamBon, who nominated Mr. Richard-
son in 1896, moved the following resolution, whioh wus seconded by Mr.
James McNaughlon, who was the seconder of Mr. Richardson's nomination
in 1800: "We, tbe Liberals of Lisgar,
hereby repudiate tho articles and Ben-
tiiuentsMately expressed in thn Winnipeg Trioune, believing them to be
opposed to tho best interest of this
Dominion and not in acoord with Liberal  principles."
The resolution wis oarried witb only
two dissenting votes. Nearly 200 delegates were present at tbe meeting.
(Sl'Kt lll.s TO THU MINER.)
Viotoria, B. C., May 4.���John O.
Browne, of Now Westminster, arrived
by last night's boat and proceeded to
the Government House, where he wbb
sworn iu aa Minister of Agriculture.
Today ho is discharging tho duties of
the office in the building. Thia afternoon he said that ho expeoted to reoeive the Government nomination at
the oonvention wiiich will be held tomorrow nigbt at New Westminster.
Mr. Brown's aooeptanoe of offloe under
Mr. Martin bus occasioned considerable comment, as he assured a number
of membors in the corridors of the
Legislature, at the timo of the orisis,
that he had refused to accept office nnder Mr. Martin. Mr. Browne bas long
been regardod as nn authority on financial matters and has been a prominent
figure in political and municipal circles in tbe Province. Hia acceptance
of a portfolio will involve his resignation of tbe position of postmaster of
Weatminster.
Mr. Ryder's exist from tbe oflice of
Finance Minister wns aa sudden and
ns unexpected as his appearanoe in it.
He resigned two eveniugs ago, leaving a note on bis desk with his keys,
s.iyi:.g tbat he had been snmnoned to
Nanaimo hy telegraph and thnt he
would not bo back.
Hon. Smith Curtis will return to the
oapital on Monday, and the Premier in
ahout three weeks.
The presidency of the Council has
not yet been filled, but it is probable
that this will be done before tbe week
is out. It ia understood that the appointment of Mr. S. Perry Mills, wbo
stood aside to allow Mr. Martin's
name to go on the Victoria tioket. will
take place shortly. Government supporters hint that Mr. Mills, when he
enters the Cabinet, will not do so bb
President of the Council, but as a salaried Minister. If no, Mr. Beebs may
Bharo tbe fate of  Mr. Ryder.
Toionto, Ont., May 4.���The Globe
has the foi iwing despatch this morniug from Frederick Hamilton:
"Bloemfontein, May 8.���The Canadians participated in the capture of
Thaba N'ohu ou Weduesrtay last. Privato J. Dafoe, of the Halifax oompany,
waa killed. Lieutenant Colonel Otter
waa alightly wounded. Pte. Burns, of
tbe Ottawa company, and Pte. Culver,
of the New Brunswick company, were
also wounded. On Monday tbe Canadians advanced from Springfield, and
on Tuesday crossed the Modder River
in the face of tbe enemy's fire, helping to re oover the waterworks. They
rushed and occupied a kopje commanding the waterworks. On Wednesday
they advanced to Thaba N'chu, ooming
into action early in tbe afternoon aud
fighting until dark. Thoy captured
several kopjes. The aotion was really
a smart rearguard skirmish and the
Canadians performed the work in a
most workmanlike manner, the Boers
eventually retiring.
"Colouel Otter's wound was caused
by a Manser bullet whieh injured bis
shoulder nnd chin alightly. Ho returned to Bloemfo '��� n ou Monday last,
but hopes to join his regiment
shortly."
Winnipog, Man., May 4���As last
nights O. P. R. westbound express was
running into Ubailia, on the Thunder
Gay section, a point about 842 miles
east of Winnipeg, the engine ran into
an open switch aud was derailed, taking the baggage car, express oar and
one colonist car with It. Reports
Btate thai thore were no injuries to any
of the passengers or trainmen. A
wrecking gang was liisnatched at once
from Fort William and woiked all
night tn oleariug the wreck.
The C. P. R. officials   have failed to
trace   who   is responsible for the aoci
dent, and   the   switch   Ib   believed to
bave been opened  by some malicious
person.
BRANDFORT NOW OURS
Very Little Opposition.-Lord Roberts Has
Now Removed His Headquarters to that Town.
Winberg the Next Objective Point.-There
Roberts Would be Between the
Boer Main Armies.
London, May 4.���Lord Roberts reports to tbe War Ollice aa follows under   date of   Brandfort, May 3 :
'We ocoupied Brandfort today without mnoh oppoaition and without, I
hope, many casualties. The First
Brigade of Mounted Infantry coven d
the left flank of the Fourteenth Brigade ol tbe Bevanth Division and the
right flank was supported by tbe Fifteenth Brigade. Gen. Pole-Caiew's
division advanced Jireotly on Brandfort. The Boer army, wbich was under
tbe oommand of Gen. Delarey, retired
in a northeasterly direotion."
London, May 4. ���News of the occupation of Brandfort was published in
the War Office at 10 a. m. today, confirming a dispatoh previously received
by tbe Associated Press.
It is generally considered the most
important communication reoeived
from the front sinoe the cBptare of
General Cronje and the relief of Ladysmith. Brandfort ia the key to one of
the main roads leading to the Draken-
berg Passes, which possibly may be
the means of oo-operatiug with General Buller later on. The capture provides an advanoe base of supply and
at tbe same time menaces the Boers
now surrounding Bloemfontein. Tbis
faot is obviously tbe reaBon for the importance attached by all hands to the
intelligence.
London, May 5.-6 a. ra.-Tbe
mounted infantry witli Lord Roberts,
among whom are the Canadians, have
picketed their boraea on the south
bank ol the Vet River, 18 miles
north ot Brandfort. The head of
Lord Roberts' column haa thua ad-
vanaed 82 miles from Karee Siding in
two days, or 62 miles north of Blcem-
fontein.
Little powder was spent. The British work was hard marching, tbe
Boers retiring out of reaoh of the Biit
iah sheila. The correapondents supplement Lord Roberts' plain statement
with a few details.
General Hutton with the first mounted iimnlry brigade drew near Brandfort. He Baw a body of Boer troops.
They opened fire npon the British wbo
leplied heavily. Tbey wore the Irish-
Ainericau brigade from Lorenzo Mar-
iiuez, and it is reported tbat the Irish
lost several men.
Tbe Boer flag was flying over Brandfort as the British entered the town.
Several Britiah wounded were found
in tbe hospital. Tha BoerB' postmaster
gave np the keys of the public buildings to Oapt. Ross. Lord Kitchener
arrived at Brandort at noon and Lord
Roberts at daik.
General Frenoh's ojvalry are sweep
ing to the northward. The expectation
is tbat the infantry will advance and
will continue toward Kroonstadt immediately. Although no prisoners
were taken and no pursnit was attempted, the news bas greatly cheered
London.
General Hunter's crossing the Vaal
at Windsortnn brings the relief of
Mafeking, 196 miles beyond, almost
within a caloulable time limit. It is
now regarded as quite possible that
Mafeing may be suocored ere tbe
Queen's birthday.
London, May 4.-11:20 p. m.��� Tbe
War Offloe tbis evening posted tbe following bulletin from; Lord Koberts,
dated Brandfort Friday, May 4;
"The mounted infantry have gone
to the Vet River. The rest of tha force
will reaoh hero tomorrow. The railway bas been repaired to Brandfort.
Hunter reports very satisfactory news
to the effoct that the passage of the
Vaal bas been oarried at Wlndtorton,
without opposition."
London, May 4.���The Boer army at
Brandfort was commanded by General
Delarey. It is presumably retiring on
Winberg. Brandfort, 85 miles nearer
tbe Transvaal camp, ia now Lord
Roberta' headquarters. Wbat particularly gratifies tbe British publio i> tbe
evidenoe that the army of Lord Roberts in tbe Orange Free State has recovered its mobility aud is again oapa-
ble of undertaking the general advance ao long retarded. It ia hardly
expected tbe Boers will make muoh of
a stand south of Kroonstadt and possibly not there if Lord Roberts succeeds
in oapturiug Winberg, thus interposing hia foroes between tbe main Federal army and the Boer forces In tbe
neighborhood of Thaba N'onua
and Hourtnek. The only op-
oppositiou wbich tho British encountered at Brandfort seems to hare oome
from the Irish-American oommand.
The oentral British army is now in
line with the extreme left at Boshof,
under Lord Methnen, and tbe extreme
tight at Elandalagte, nuder Gen. Bnl-
ler.BO that the moving oftbese wings in
co-operation witb the main army may
ahortly be expeoted.
Warrenton, Cape Colony, May 4.���A
British fix inch gun opened unexpectedly on the Boer laager yeaterday at a
distance of seven milm, throwing liun-
dred-pound sheila with wonderful ao-
enraoy and causing a basty retreat of
the Burghers. The bombardment oon-
turned today at all points by howitzers
and Held guns, supported by two oom-
panies of the Minister Regiment. The
Boera were driven from shelter and
their guns quiculy pnt out of aotion
London, May 4.���The Garotte thia
evening contains General Frenoh's report of tho disaster to the Suffolk Rig-
intent in tbe Oolesberg district on January 5, wbioh he attributed entirely
to the lact that a majority of four
companies of the regiment engaged
wero seized with panio and retired.
He pays high tribute to tbe ollicers
who stood their ground and tbe men
wbo remained witb them.
Thaba N'chu, May 8.-The Bonn
bave evacuated Tbaba N'ohn Hill.
Tbey aie believed to be still trekking,
though one gun has shelled .tlm camp
indiscrimnately. Scouts leport tbat
some of the Boers retired toward*
Wepener. They believe the Boera
evacuated the position during the
night, trekking lo the northward in
three directions. General Frenoh left
bere today and General Rundle is now
in com maud. It is expeoted tbat Genie a I Brabant will effeot a junction at
any moment.

THE NEW   KNIGHT  ERRANT.
If yoa should ohauce to meet on the
streets a dark, tierce looking man,with
slouch hat, shield und breastplate,
monnted on a lean horse, with lnnce in
rest, know that it is Don John
Qpixoto Houston. He has no Sancho
I'aimi as osqnire, for although the
original Saucho wns a simple fellow,
Don John is unahb to find in Nelson
anyone simple enough to attend him
in his assinino attack on that windmill of voters' list nppetils. He is
sallying out alone. "Tbe Tribnne
stands for Provincial rights," comes
down from the figure on the demure
Rosiuante, in a voice raspy and terribly threatening, "and today its manager will take np the light of the men
who are boiug robbed of a politioal
right by a gang of as unscrupnlocs
politiciins as were ever congregated in
a single oommunity in Oanada. " It is
Don John who proclaims this, aud it iB
he yoa see ou the leun horse.
Was there ever anything so ridiculous
sinoe the attaok of the original Quixote ou the original windmill? He will
strike a blow for Provincial rigbfs.
The dear old Knight of three ceuturies
ago oould not havo heen moro delicious-
ly absurd. What have appeals uguinst
a voters' list to do with Provincial
rights? All thiB pother can bo explained in a word. Don John is running
for the Legislature. He is one of the
very smart Dons who not infrequently
overreach themselves. He collected a
great many names, some five hundred
or so, of persons vho for tho most part
have no right to vote in theoleotion in
June next. There was a sprinkling of
qualified voters, provided their names
bad been registered in timo; but it
was Don John's gnmo to keep ull under cover until what he supposed whs
the lust moment, und then to spring
them all us a surprise. The applications wonld I e bundled in on the bend
of tbo Collector of Votes, who wonld
record thorn on tho stioke of the last
bell, when it would be too Into for
appeals.
But while n Don proposes, tho law
disposes, Tho law iu this oase says
these registrations cannot he included
in the list that will be finally revised
on Monday next; they must stand over
nutil the revision of November. In
planning to bo bo late to client revision, this smart Don John was too late
by several weeks to have his applications considered at all. Foiled iu his
purpose by his own loo gieat smartness ; swing his hundreds nf fraudulent voters cut oil', and his ehanoes of
election receding and receding until
scarcely a glimpse of them remains,
even to his own sanguine sight, he
breaks ont into n tcrrihlo rnge, mounts
his Rosiuante, and oharges down our
streets with the desperate resolve to
vindicate���of all things in the world ���
onr Provincial rights nr perish in the
attempt. What a jolly old ass Don
John (jnixote Houston is making of
himself I
of distracting public attention Irom
the conduct of the Lieutenant-Governor aud liis relations with tbe polit
ienl events ot tho past few months.
lint the trick is as stale aB the ber
ring, and will not do. At a certain
meeting at Viotoria, of leading Gov
eminent politicians, a suggestion that
young Mr. Mclnnes enter the Cabinet
of ourios was apparently discouute
nancod, nml. as was made to appear,
by the Governor himself. A report of
what ooeurred shortly afterwards ap
peared in The Colonist, wherein it
was statod that thu Governor opposed,
ostensibly at least, the entrance of bis
son into the Cabinet whicb Mr. Mar
tin hod so laboriously constructed. It
would be interesting to learn who fnr
pished this information to The Colo
nist. Across the mountains has come
the whispered bint that it was the
Governor himself, and subsequent as
well as prior events tend to confirm
tho truth of it.
The action of tho Grand Jury in
finding no bill in th? proseoutiou
against Mr. Sarel, of The Kamloops
Standard, seero6 to have had a wonder
ful effeot in opening the eyes of some
people to the real state of public opinion
with regard to oertain occurrences and
certain influences affocting them. The
free hand allowed Mr, Martiu in form
ing his Cabinet and in fixing tho time
for holding the elections,together witb
tho attempt to seonre some recognition
at Ottawa, resulting so lamentably
both to His Honor and His Honor's
First Minister, all go to suggest the
prayer that mu6t be daily rising from
the altar of this little political family.
Sir Wilfrid Laurier has Btated in
effect that the Lieutenant-Governor
has taken his life in his own bands, so
it eimply remains for the people of
British Columbia to lick tbe hand
that smites them, if they desire the
presont occupant of the Government
House to continue in possession. The
oliraax is reaobed with tbe advent of
young Mr. Mclnnes to the Provincial
arena, in the effort to save necks. We
venture the opinion that, although
time doubtless blunts tbe memory, tbe
electors of this Provinoe will not for
get tbe doings of the fine Mnlnnes
band wben tbe day of reckoning arrives on tbe 9th of June next.
Some Coast papers profess to believe
that there is an nnderstanding between
tho followers of Mr. Turner and the
straight Conservatives. So far from
there being anything objectionable in
this, we oonld hope it were tme. We
nre utterly unable to see what there is
in tho politics of this Provinoe to pre
vent an understanding. It is to be ob
served, however, tbat Mr. Wilson dis
tinotly disavows anything and every
thing of tbe nature of an alliance,
either completed or in contempla
tion. It may be better so; the ways of
the politicians in this Provinoe are
past comprehension ;but we think there
are fewer things more certain in this
world's future than that a substantial
majority of Turner candidates and
Conservative candidates will be elected
to the next Legislature. The people
have had a surfeit of mongrel Oabi
nets, and have no taste for freaks, and
t) ey will turn to what they know and
can understand.
Tho only wrong iu oonnection with
thoso appeals was committed by Mr.
Houston himself. If be bad not mixed
op tho names of the few good voters
witb the many bad ones, aud bad filed
tbu applications in respect to the former
in proper time, overy man of them
would have a vote. But Mr. Houston
and his agents pnt them in bad com
pany, and in his game to stuff the
list with several hundred fraudulent
names���tho names of aliens und stran
gers who have no more right to vote
than Mr. Weet's horses���he spoiled all.
We do not wonder he is boside himself
with rage.

SUGCESSFULUBALL
Trie Opera House  Filled  Last  Night
With Merry Dancers.
The Library Ball hnH now liecome an
annual affair, and, if it is always as
itieueesful nn it was a yonr ago and last
night, it will certainly bo looked forward to by all those who are addicted
to the dancing hnbit. Tho Opeia
Hoose is not tlio loveliest looking
bnililiug iu the world, bnt it wns cer-
tniiily given flinue semblnuoo of beauty
last night. The members of the decoration oonimitee did their work splendidly and the generous use of limiting,
Hags and plnnts mnde a deoidetlly pretty effeot. The three essentials, to a
lirst class ball were not lacking. The
lloor was exoellent, almost too good,
in faot, the music thoroughly onjoya-
hle and the supper very pnlntable and
as extensive as ull such suppers aie,
which is to sny thnt there was nhont
lour Union as nmoli as those present
oould possibly eat and still be tit to go
to Pinafora Monday night.
The at tendance wus very large and
il was fortunate for those who dance
that every one elso did not do likewise
for the spacious floor was completely
tilled with the svfiiling couples who
enjoyed themselves thoroughly as
duuoers ever did. There is a pleasure
in dancing to one of Herr Steiner's
waltzes, in gliding along to tho tune
of one of his "sole" stirring two-
steps, of getting delightfully muddled
iu a set of lanoers when some one in
the set does not know how to danne it,
aud of dashing along to the lively
strains of a polka. Herr Stemer's
music is always good, nnd last night it
was just as was expected. With tbe
supper extras there wore tweuty-five
dances on the programme. A goodly
number certainly, and ninny did not
see the end of the boll, but many more
danced it out aud reluctantly donned
their wraps and doparted as the finishing notes of "Home, Sweet Home''
filled the Opera House and the mountains in the east stood as huge black
pillars against a grey backgroi nd.
The arrangements wero perfect, and
even if an especially inspiring two-
step did make it uncomfortably warm
nobody eared. Everyone wns having
too good a time to mind nbout that.
and wilted collars were quite peimis-
sable. Of oonrse, everyone was there.
The gowns of the ladies were beautiful to an extreme, and those who occupied gallery seats looked down on a
very pretty scene as the dances were
proceeding. The affair wus au entiro
suooess and those who arranged it nie
to be heartily congratulated. The
1,Unary will receive a handsome sum
as a result.

nigbt Tho Miner wns informed thnt
the Mayor of tbnt oily had called i

morning to tako action as a mnnioipality towards aiding in thu relief of tho
Sandon fire sufferers.
W. E. Boie, superintendent of Ernest

reports tbat the work is progressing

I 'Yes air, you bet, nnd yon can jnst,

was tbe way Hamilton Byers responded to tho call mnde upon him by the
gentlemen who began the move for
the Sandon henofit at the Opera House
Monday night. Others responded
equally as encouragingly if not as

Mr. F. W. Peters, of tbe 0. P. R.,
wired tbe Mayor of Sandon yeBterday
that the 0. P, R. wonld carry free all
clothing and supplies nout to the relief

The Liberals have not yet given np

not yet been mnde pnblio, hut they are
winking hard aud quietly. It would
not surprise ninny who are in touch

Houston Liberals, Messrs. GihBon,Taylor, Tunstall and a few others, are
working bard to prevent this move,
lint as they no longer oontrol the Lib

be of little avail.
R. Corlett, one of the men who entered objections to names upon the
voters' list was surrounded by a orowd
of men in front of the Silver King
Hotel hiBt night, and brutally beaten
by one of them while others stood
about ready to jump in if Corlett
showed signs of getting the best of it.
It was an exbibiton of anything bnt
"British fair play," and the men who
oheered Corlelt'B assnilaut could hard
ly have beou Britishers. It was the
first exhibition of rowdyism dnring
the present political campaign aud tbe
rowdyism wns on the pnrt of some of
Mr. Houston's suporters.
The Hon. Smith Cnrtis, of Rossland,
will visit Nelson next week and if be-
tweon tho present and the time of his
visit a Martin candidate has entered
the field he will probably adriresB a
meeting of the electors of Nelaon in

Wilkes, tbe labor leader, returned from
Rossland to Nelson yesterday and says
that he believes Ourtis will be elooted

the belief that Gov. Mackintosh iB
strong, but thinks he is not quite
strong enongb. He had a talk with
Curtis while he was in RosBland and
Cnrtis told him of his contemplated

THE   ONT.Y   COURSE.
Ijansdowno   nofends thn  Government
iu the Spion Kop Matter.
London, May 4.��� In tho Honse of
Lords today the Earl of Portsmouth,
Liberal Unionist, onlled attention to
the publication of the Spion Kop despatches, which he snid had moused n
depth of feeling difficult to.oxaggorate.
The Secretary of Stato for Wnr, tha
Marquis of Lmisdowne, in defending
tho publication of tho despatches, said
it was tho only course oron to the
Government. Proceeding be quoted
the Queen's regulations relating to the
pnblioation of such documents and
pointed ont three cases in tho Afghan
war, in whicb censorious despntohes
were puhlishod, adding thnt in those
cases other employment wns fonnd for
tho general. Regarding Spion Kop.
the Seoertnry claimed tbe Government
might hnve published nothing lint thai
tbe baltlo oost 1,000 oasualtios, nnd if
the papers hnd been withheld tho reputations of the generals would have
been damngod more than by thoir publication, t
The Secretary of Stnte for War did
not desire to divest himself of any responsibility, but if he had published
he despatches without consulting Lord
Roberts he would havo been guilly of
groat discourtesy and disoynlty to bim.
He denied ho bnd suggested thnt garbled doonments should be substituted
and claimed that what he did suggest
was perfectly honorable nnd harmless.
The oensnro hy Lord Roberts of General Buller amouutod to the oharge
that he had trusted too much to his
snboidinates. That was a very mild
rebuke. Lord Roberts showed conclusively that he had not withdrawn his
confidence in Genernl Boiler, by lenv-
ing the latter at the bend of the army
entrusted with the most difficult operations whioh were successfully carried
out.
After Lord Kimberley, tho Liberal
leader in the House of Lords, had deolared the publication unjustified.
Lord Rosebery asked if it wero true
that as a consequence of the publication General Buller bad tendered his
resignation, whioh wns refused.
Lord Lansdowne replied tbnt tbe
War Office had no knowledge of saob a
step.
Lord Rosebery deolared that General
Bnller bad been flaoed in a oruol
position, pointing out thnt after the
delicious joy of tho public at tho relief
of Ladysmith the War Office had set
to work to publish everythiug damaging, critical and censorious upon Buller in order to satisfy publio curiosity,
of whioh no outward signs existed,and
they were now compelled to wash
their dirty linen in publio. The Government, he further asserted, had.im-
paired Goueral Buller's authority, and
had degraded his position because they,
the strongest Government of modem
times, wero unable to face a few questions in tbo Honse of  Commons.
After n brief reply from the Duke of
Devonshire, President of the Counoil,
the subject was droppad.
