NOTHING AT ALL
ROSEBERY SPEAKS OF IT
He Condemns Clminberhin's Reference to
Prance���Some Germans 'Welcome
an Und ei standing.
Paris, Dec. 1.���The Journal des Debuts says it doubts the existence of an
Anglo-German agreement as Mr.
Chamberlain asserted, and adds that it
would be cruel and indecent upen the
part of Emperor William to accept the
acclamations of Ihe Dutch and visit
their Queen, if he had really signed
what is tantamount to the death decree
of the two South African Republics.
Emperor William's visit to Holland
must mean that lie bus not taken such
an irrevocable step. The Liberte takes
the matter more seriously and urges
Franco to peek alliances, "in view of
a certain eventuality in perhaps the
near future."
Berlin, Deo. 1.���The use of the word
'���alliance'' in Mr. Chamberlain's speech
at Leicester, has caused a general
flutter in the German Press. The
Chauvinist organs protest vigorously
The Kreutze Zeitung. the organ of the
military party, oommenls nn it with
scorn and indignation The other
journals, including the Lokal Anzeiger
assert that tho meeting of Count Von
Pin-low and Mr. Chamberlain in London, was productive of results calculated to smooth away some difficulties
which bad arisen in colonial question's
but tbat no alliance exists, although
lhe conferences between Ihe German
and British statesmen at Windsor Castle left an equally good impression on
all. As bearing upon this, the Loknl
Anzeiger adds: "Germany and Great
Britain aro guided by the same sincere
\\ isb to move in a friendly manner in
mcnsional subordinate differences. At
l..u sumo time Germany does not intend to tight other people's battles."
The Vossische Zeitung says :
"We also wish to sie Germany,
Great Britain, and the United States
co-operating in all the essential ques
tions of the world's policy. "
London, Dec. 1.���Lord Rosebery
speaking at Edinburgh this evening,
deprecated Mr. Chamberlain's reference to France in his speech at Leioes-
ter and said :
"We have no right to go into the
gutters to lisb up tho derelict press of
any country, and to hold it up to scorn
or as a motive of our policy, It is
impossible that the Queen could be
besmirched by such attacks which
only reaoil on tbe attackois; and
whatever thn degraded outburst may
mean, it does not represent tho best or
highest opinion of Franco. Wo bave
been ever-ready to flout other nations
and it is no wonder than Great Britain is unpopular abroad. I trust that
ibis undiplomatic frankness will
ce.ise, for those stinging words rankle
long afterward and it is not for statesmen to speak nndor the passing circumstances of tho moment.
WILL OBJECT TO HIM.
Roberts to Be Barred From Taking the
Oath of Office.
Washington, Deo. 1.���At i confer-
once of Republicans tonight, it was
decided that the eligibility of Represents tive-eleot Roborts, of Utah, accused of practising polygamy, to occupy a seat in tbo House, should be investigated and pending the investigation be should not be permitted to take

The proposition was made iu response to a request from the Harbor
Commission tbat those desirous of

asked for twelve hundred feet of land

$1,000,000 and wanted a lease of at
least forty years, and would start
work at Windmill Point at once, to be
ready for freight next =pri g. The
syndicate would build fifteen tows
and steam barges at. a cost of $100,000
cash, and would give a bond of $50,-
000.
Tho Syndicate agrees to bring 25, ���
000,000 bushels of grain to Montreal
next season, increasing it in 1901 to

PresB  and Publ:c   Rtehtly  Grumble at
the   Inexplicable  Silence  from
the Seat of War.
London, Dec. 2.��� 4:110 a. in.���Absolute Bilsnce has fallen over allairs iu
South Africa. The War Office has
not yet received Lord Methuen's casualty list. The public and the press,
hitherto patient, are beginning to
murmur at tbe apparently needless delay win li keeps many families in'a
state of painful suspense. It is regarded as practically certain that Lord
Methuen bus been re-inforced, by half
a battalion of tbe Gordon Highlanders,
a regiment of cavalry and a batteiy of
artillery, and that De Aar is being
daily reinforced by troops to hold the
lines of communication. It is supposed
that the Natal advance has been delayed by the Locc-ssity of getting supplies to Pieterrnartizburg, but uot a
word emanates from any of tbe various commands. Liontenant-General Sir
Charles Mansiield ^Clarke, who, as already announced, will command the
Sixth division, has seen mnoh service
in South Africa, particularly in tbe
Zulu and subsequent wars. Ho has also held a number of staff appointments
at home and is reputed to lie a r*ry
capable oflicei.
A LIE EXPOSED.
Berlin, Deo. 2.���Tbe Krauze Zeitung
prints a sensational story regarding
tbe Boers' supply of ammunition. Its
purport is that Arthur Chamberlain,
brother of Joseph Chamberlain, British
Colonial Secretary, is the head of Kyu-
ooh's great gnumakiug firm if Birm-
inghain. This concern, so tho story
runs, arranged last spring to supply
tbe Boers with a number of cartridges,
which were shipped as ironware and
landed at East London and Durban by
tbe German mail steamship Bunders-
rath, which mado two trips for tbe
purpose. Tho real nature of tbe cargoes was not discovered and tho cartridges reached Pretoria safely.
Londou, Dec. 1.���Arthur Chamberlain, referring to the Berlin dispatch
says the ammunition wns shipped to
the Biers in 1890, that there was no
secrecy about the proceeding, and that
the Government was aware of it.
BERLIN AND KAISER.
The Emperor and    Municipal   Council
Fighting About Nothing.
Berlin, Dec. 1. ���Korliners are still
agog over tho bitter quarrel betweeu
the Emperor and the municipal author-
ites. The council appealed a docreo issued by the police forbidding them to
erect a walled enclose with an inscription in memory of the victories in the
uprising of IMS. The council in turn
has appealed to tbo administrative
Court which will try tho case December 14. The Emperor has made up
his mind, it is said in court circles,
that if the decision is against tho
Council, he will will confirm the elec
'ion of Mayor Von Kirsehuer, who has
patiently awaited the Imperial pleasure
since July of last year. On the other
hand, if the decision favors the city.
His Majesty, so the story goes, will
continue to withhold bis confirmation,
Baron Vou Mirbacb, Chief Chamberlain to the Empress, has gone on
leave to BelRinm for three weeks, thus
escaping lhe Berlin excitement caused
by his recent letter reprimanding tbo
Council.
KAISER AT WORK AGAIN.
Berlin, Nov.ilo. ���With Emperor William's retnrn today there was an immediate revival of political activity in
Berlin. His Majesty arrived at the

Havana, Dec. 1
editorial on the
says:
"There will ho neither revolt nor
insurrection. Matters are in a grave
condition, but not alarmingly so. The
judicious behaviour of all persons of
influence will prevent any violent or
sensational developments; There has
been no outbreak of armed men iu any
pari of the island nud as a matter of
fact the people in the rural districts
intend lo squelch auy uttenipt at an
uprising.
"The farmers who had to bo forced
to fight Spain are now beginning to
recover from the effects of that struggle. Tbey know that tho Americans
are determined lo maintain tho peace,
and they know also that the American
authorities are kept fully informed of
eveiy step taken by lhe men who are
giving a percentage of their salaries to
buy arms. The other imbeciles -tho
agitators and office holders who are
using the money they received fiom
United States to further plans which
they must know are doomed to fail-
are also marked men. The Anietic.iu
Government has in Cuba an inapproachable spy service, largely composed of Cubans themselves.''
Remarks of this nature coming from
newspaper closely in touch with the
facts of the situation and inclined to
show tho brightest side of affairs,
have provoked a good deal of discussion among Americans here, especially
an allusion in another part of the editorial * ��� tbe proj at oi tbe rura'. ganrd
to use the arms furnished them by the
United States. This latter suggestion
is thought by some to confirm tho ie-
port that the rural guard will take to
the woods in a body when called upon by the properly authorized Cuban
leaders.

M.   Deroulede.
Paris, Dec. 1.���Tho Senate as a
High Court, today, by a vote of 1114 to
08 granted the public prosecutor's request to withdraw some of his unnecessary witnesses. The reading of the
Court's decision evoked violent protests from the prisoners. Counsel for
the defence asked thnt one of tbo witnesses be heard. The Court, after a
brief secret session, denied the request
and ordered tbat General Roget be

The General described the demon
stratum of February 2.ird, at the time

MUNICIPAL.
Tne question of the next municipal
elections is beginning to excite general
interest. M->n meet and talk over the
probable candidates. Naturally the
Mayoralty is the first under discussion,
and speculation as to the contest for
this is growing apace. Before we transfer our thoughts to the new Council,
however, it will become us to dismiss
the old one with some degree of ceremony and respect. P has 11 mouth's
life still remaining, but its record is
made and it cau fairly be judged ou
what has passed. The general verdict
will be, we are sure, that on the whole
it baa been a good one. Mr. Neelands
hns proved all his fri.nids expected of
him, aud more than his own modesty
permitted bim to claim for himself. If
he ha? not beeu a showy Mayor, he has
been a painstaking and conscientious
one; if he has uot been brilliant he has
been safe. The qualities be has displayed throughout his term are the
most desirable ones after all. He allowed himeslf to be persuaded against
his will to accept a nomination. He
had no municipal experience, and was
entirely devoid of anything like pretension. He felt himeslf quite free to
express a doubt whether be could successfully cope witb the responsibilities
of the position, but his record fully
justifies the confidence of his friends
in electing him. With the year's experience his usefulness, if he would accept a second term, would be more pronounced still, and The Miner is very
strongly of the opinion that the City
could not do better at the present time
than to secure a leuewal of his services.
In speaking of the Aldermen, we
are spared tbe danger of making invidious distinctions by the fact that all
have devoted themselves to their duties
wilh au eye single to the public interests. Mr Beer has probably been foremost in courage and enterprise in facing the many problems, big aud little,
with which our growing, ambitious
town has to reckon in the immediate
future. His is the spirit of the true
Western pioneer. He believes in Nelson, and would not be daunted by auy
enterprise calculated to advance its
growth and prosperity. Mr. McKillop
is more oautiouB, but equally earnest
when he cau convince himself that ho
ison the tight track. Mr. Fletcher and
Mr. Hillyer havo been exceedingly
energetic in promoting tbe various
public works with wliich they have
been connected. The modest member
of the Couucil hns been Mr. Kirkoat-
riok, but he has uot been able to suppress evidences of a development which
will make him au extremely useful.
pnblio servant, should he decide to
seek re election. We must uot forget
the absent one, Mr. Thompsou, whom
other duties called elsewhere before
his term was completed. A man of
rare good judgment and honesty of
purpose, his withdrawn] was a loss to
the Council and to the community.
The latter is out of the question, of
course, but it is doubtful if the City
could do better than re-elect the others
in a bunch. Thoy have served an apprenticeship, and have an intelligent
grasp of our niuuicipnl needs and necessities. But if this is impossible, the
citizens should be careful to select a
safe Mayor. That is the first requirement, Wo do not want a mau who has
axes to grind or personal ambitions to
serve The next Mayor of Nelson, like
the present one,should be a person who
will put the public interests before any
other and loyally maintain them.

It is ruther far nwny, but The Miner
for several months has enjoyed the
pleasure of a South African exchange,
in The Bnrkly East Reporter. Wo
gather that the community in wliich
it most circulates is largely Boer, from
the fact that portions of it are printed
in Boer Dutch. Throughout the nego
tintioriH preceding the outbreak it was
disposed to deprecate Mr. Chamberlain's insistence, but now that war is
ni'tiiallv raging it is very pronounced
in its Britisli sympathies, Mo far it
is coming regularly, the issue of Oo-
tober 27 arriving yesterday. If, however, tbe cable report of a week ago,
to the effect thnt the town had been
raided by the Boers and Boer troopers
hnd been amusing themselves by riding
through public tuildiugs, waB correct,
there is likely to be uu interruption to

TRADE TROUBLES
THE OABPENTEh-S' UKION MAKti A
DEMAND ON C0NTM0T0RS.
Uine Hems to Be a Working Day and
$3.50 a Day's Wages���Union Men
Only to Be Employed.
There is *rouhle brewing in the
building trade. Some days ago the
carpenters employed nt Nelson formed
themselves into a Union, appointed
offloers nnd prepared a programme
wliich tliey say they will curry out to
jhe letter. All dnring the summer, the
carpenters have heen working ten
boors per day, and good tradesmen
were willingly paid J8.50 tor their
work. There were however, a nuin-
bor employed at $!! per day, on the
rougher work, and several apprentices
were also engaged, Sine the formation of the Union, it lias heen decided that no carpenter shall work for
less than $.1.50 per dnv, nor longer
than nine hours. The contractors
generally, rio not object tp the reduction in the hours of labor, hut they do
object to be called upon to pay first-
class wages to second or third rate
men. There have heen several conferences between the Union men and the
builders, and a sort of compromise was
proposed by the Union, by which contractors' would bo at liberty to employ
one apprentice or help for every three
Union men engaged on tbe work. One
of thejleading contractors says that
many men iu his employ arc. not worth
$3..10 a day, and that if he, is to pay
this rate he will send to the Coast and
get first-class men. He also thinks it
unreasonable on the part of the men
to make such demands at this stage of
the work. When contracts for the
building of the lire business blocks
now going up were entered into, the
figuring was done generally on a $!1
per day biiBis. Now tbat the masons are
through with their work there is all the
indoor, or carpenters' ,vork, to bo
done, aud if, as is threatened, the men
will all be called out on Monday morning unless Ihe employers comply with
the terms of the Union, it will seriously retard business. There is to be
a meeting of tbe Union tonight to
consider (he situation, anrl it is expected that some decisive notion will bu
taken���probably a strike decreed, as
the contractors refuse to pay tbe rate
of wages demanded unless to first-class
carpenters.
LOCATION CHANCED.-Owing to
the condition of the roads, the ball to
have been given at the Granite Mines.
Friday, Deoember nth, will lm held in
Fraternity Hall, Nelson, instead, and
all invitations issued will be supposed
to read "Fraternity Hall," instead of
"Granite Mine."
THE NELSON RIFLES.
Their Financial Condition���The   New
Drill Shed.
The Nelson Rifle Company on
Thursday evening held a meeting in
tbe Armory to look into the business
of the company and settle the plans
lor the winter. About 2o members of
the company were present.
It was found that the company fund,
derived from the pay of the officers
and men, amounted to $24(1, whiie the
indebtedness in respect of the rifle range
amounted to $175.
It was decided to pay off this debt
at once, aud the balance will bo devoted to llxing up the new drill hall.
Mr. James Liwrence lias kindly al-
liiwail the company tho use of a building behind the Presbyterian Church,
formerly used by him as a warehouse,
for a drill hall, and it will be provid
ed with some gymnastic apparatus, as
well as the usual accessories of a drill
hall. The only dilHnulty was that of
funds, as the company is not affluent.
Several suggestion were made, but
t'rnt of a smoker met with the most
approval. No definite action was taken,
however,
It was decided that the company
will drill regularly through the winter
every Thursday evening.

The plate-glnBB windows have been
put in at Iho Hudson's Buy Oo. 's new

ting dry wood for the ceiling", which
somewhat delays the work.
In the Nelsou Furniture Company's
advertisement of yesterday morning,
the discounts should have read "25
and 10 pur cent.'' Instead of 2~) and Till
per cent. In this morning's advertisement tho figures are right.
The dance given by the Smelter
Band a; Fraternity Hall lust night
was a great success Both music and
floor were above reproach and every
one bad a most enjoyable time It is
believed, and honed, that the nffaii
was also a fiunncial success.
The following telegram was yesterday dispatched to Captain A. E. Hodgins. Canadian contingent, Capetown:
"Nelson remembered you all. Family
well." This thoughtful action wns
suggested by Judge Forin at the St.
Andrew's banquet, and wus promptly
acted on.
During the year, so fur, 3?5 plumbing permits were issnad, as compared
with 2U0 last year; and 243 permits for
sewerage connections, as against 140
for the year 1899. These figures go to
show that the extension of the waterworks and sewerage system have beeu
liberally availed of.
The recent, heavy rains aro causing
oonsiderabe trouble along the lino of
the Slocan Railway. Near Park Sid-
iug the other day the rails were completely covered with mud and rock
which were hulled clown from the
hillsides. Fortunately the trackmen
were able to get the road clear in time
to keep traffic open.
Tomorrow being hospital Sundav,
there will be special services at St.
Paul's Presbyterian Church, with collections morning and evening in aid
of the Kootenav Lake Geuernl Hospital. The subject of the Rev. R.
Frew's morning sermon will be "The
Good Samaritan," in the evening
Saint Andrew will be his theme.
A number of local suckers are wondering whv their friend the Australian
.Salesman does not turn up again, according to promise, and afford them
another opportunity of parting with
their money. They would like to meet
him it' nnly to compare time between
tho watches he so freely distributed
and those sold by J. J. Walker or Paten nude Bros,
The D, P. R. train had a narrow
escape on Thursday between Cascade
City and Kobson. A boulder had rolled on to the track, and the engineer,
catching sight of it just in time, reversed ids engine nnd jumped. The
locomotive collided with the rock and
wns nearly forced over a precipice several hundred feet deep. Fortunately
nothing was hurt except the engine.
The case of R. C Ruchanau vs. the
Ymir Gold Mines, Ltd., fixed for todny, has been adjourned sine die
Ibis is a case in which tho plaintiff
sues fnr wnges. He was brought to
this Proviuce from Sudbury, to work
at the Ymir mine, and signed a six
months' contract. Having put in a
few days, he quit work and now snes
for wnges. A great deal of interest
ntttaches to the case, which will be
tried by a jnry.
That big Presbyterian candle thnt is
burning in the window of the Lawrence Hardware Co., will probably
keep people guessing for some days to
come. It costs jnst ten cents per
guess, nnd local mathematicians vary
considerably as to how long it will
take to hum the candle. The calculations range from eight hours to eight
days. At the present rate of oonsnmp'
tion, it would seem as if the eight-day
men will be nearer the mark.
Tomorrow evening in tho Baptist
Church under the auspices of the Ladies' Aid there will be held a missionary meeting. The Superintendent of
Missions, Rev. J. E. Coombs, will be
present and give an account of the
work being done in lhe Province, and
some idea of tbe work to he done. He
is bringing a large map which will be
bung in a prominent place, and which
will enable him easily to indicate each
Mission. A collection will be taken
for Ihe work in this Province.
The case of Kcgiiia vs. Walter Turn-
hull was called nt the recent Assize
Court in Nelson, but Welter, who was
out on hail, ou a charge of robbing u
man, did not respond, nor hns he

Cranhrook, and Harry Drew, of Kim-
berlcv, were bis bondsmen, and nn order wns made bv the Judge estreating

l^flMifttiMttftMi^
More substantial payments on miii
ing properties were marie here yesterday, this tiuio un mines sitnated in
(.'amp Mansfield, fcix weeks aRo,
acini; on behalf of Londou capitalists,
Mi. Ernest Mansfield took an 18
mon lbs1 bond ou the Tread well and
John A. miues from Charles Floro-
nian for $:!0,0O0. The properties have
shown up so well, however, that Mr.
Mansfield yesterday took up the bond,
paying the purchaser $ijO,000 less a discount agreed to between the parties.
Ilo also made the second payment on
the Agues Group, situated in the same
camp This group was bonded about
six weeks ago for $510,000, a cash payment of $l.o0l> being made at the time.
The payniont yesterday amounted to
|3,600, wliich brings the total already
paid up to $4,000. The property belongs
to W. E. 13oie. Both payments were
made through the Hank of British Columbia here.
All the above claims are being vigorously developed with a largo force
of men, Roth properties are provided
with well found camps, with buildings
capable of accommodating a large force
of miners.
Four of the properties controlled by
Mr. Mansfield, in the camp bearing
his name, are now being actively developed. A tunnel is being driven on
the Tory claim, where tbere is a fine
showing of silver ore. A cross cut
tunnel is boing driven on the Bertba
Fraction iu order to tap the Joker lead
on the John A. claim at a depth of
:!v'0 feet. When completed, the tunnel
will be 730 feot long. A 40-foot crosscut tunnel is also being driven on tbe
Green Lakes fraction, to strike the
Tread well and Joker load at a depth
of 2W feet.
Mr. Mansfield intends to put mere
men to work as soon as they can be
advantageously used. Camp Mansfield
is now a lively spot, and the indications are that it   will   ere long   be  a
rich mineral produdcer.
��� ���   ���
Mr. W, A. Macdonald, Q. C, has
some beautiful samples of ore from tbe
Arlington, near Slocan, at his office.
The ore is particularly rich and there
is  said  to  be  abundance of it at  tbe
mine.
* *   s
Port   Steele,    Nov.     2?.���The   news
from the  Chicanionstoue   is  most encouraging.    The  work   is] progressing
rapidly, and considerable  oro lias been
taken down   for shipment   during tbe
past few days.    There has been an immense   amount   of work done   on   the
propeity   since   it was  taken over  by
the present company   six   months ago.
There   lias   been   550   feet jat   tunnel,
shaft, winze, crosscut and open cut recorded to   date.    The   long  tunnel   is
now in 239 feet, and the work mapped
out for this winter is  a   winze  to  be
sunk at the end   of   the   long   tunnel.
This  will   be     100    feet^ deep.    This
work has  been commenced  and  good
ore is being taken out while   sinking.
A   new tunnelj 150 feet   Delow   No.   1
will be driven to  a point immediately
under  the   winze, which will   give  a
vertical depth  of 375 feet.   The fcroe
will be increased as tho workjproceeds,
The   eonsolidationn    of   the   Moyie
mines  is regarded in   this section as a
wonderful achievement   and tbere is a
desire   to   throw   bouquets   at J.   AY.
Lrewry, who   engineered the deal.    It
is about six months   since Mr. Drewry
made his first visit to  East  Kootenay,
and the results  of   his  labors are now
apparent.     This    consolidation    will
have the effect of attracting   attention
to  the mineral wealth of this  district
which will oventnally prove  to bo one
of the   riohest   sections  of  the  Province. This statoment oan be borne out.
Mineral  has   beon   found  everywhere
in  the   mountains  on either  side  of
tho Kootonay valley from the   international boundary to Golden on tbe Canadian Pacific.    Tlie country has hardly
been  prospected.   Uutil   last   year  it
was far from   transportation   and   the
prospector    was    looking  for    mines
nearer bases of  supplies, but now   the
conditions   are   changed, and prospectors are all over the country from Fort
Steele to Windermere.
Cowardly Devices   Wliich Have   Been   ;���**
Resorted To By tho Boers. j *35
The well known saying that "all is ���<*
fair in love and war'' is only true in rJ5
a very limited sense; for apart from '-��
theso treacherous artifices wlnrb no k|
honorable man wonld think of resort- ^
iug to, the leading nations of the i'__
world have settled by solemn treaty !"S
tbe methods by whioh civilized wai- *"5
fare should���and should not���bo enr- '��� US
ried ou. There is nothing wrong in ^
the favoiite Boor device of hiring the
enemy into an ambush, nud then
shooting the unsuspecting soldiers
down, brutal as it /nay seem. That
was what happened at Bronkhurst
Spruit in 1880; but the next step of the
Boers was ono of the grossest outrages ^
ever perpetrated on humanity in tbe
name of wnr.
Having drawn tbe British into their
ambuscade, tbe Boers sent out a flag
of truce. That, of course, at once
stopped the British fire, and gave the
Boers the chance of covering our soldiers with their gnus. They (hen took
deliberate aim at the redcoats, of
whom S0O, out of 250, were shot down.
This .despicable use of tho wbite flag
was described at the time as tho aot of
the basest scoundrels, and should have
shut out the Boers forever from treatment as civilized  foes.
Iu the present war the encmj has
uot scrupled to   make use of tbe  same

forbidden tactics. At the Battle of
Elands Laagte the Boers hoisted tbe
white flag in order to stop the British
fire to give themselves the opportunity
to escape. But for this their defeat
would have been still more crushing
than it was.
One of the most cowardly acts ever
perpetrated by a general was that, of
the notorious Cronje, when operating
during tbe former war, against the
town of Potohefstroom. In order that
the Britisli garrison should refrain
from tiring on bis men, he was brutal enough to place British non-combatants whom he had "captured'' in
front of his most exposed positions.
Moreover,he eomniitted'another serious
breach of the international |laws of
wnr by withholding from tho beleaguered garrison, until it surrendered,
tbe information that peace had been
concluded.
