Eiggarsborg, Saturday, March I).���
(Hoer Camp).���Tha Federals have
fallen back on the Higgarsberg Chain,
crossing Natal south of Dundee. The
retreat from Ladysmith was due to
the mistake of a certain Boer mm-
mandunt in ordering bis men to retire
from the key ol the position, withont
any reasons for the movement. On
receipt of tho bad news from Modder
River Wednesday, it was reBolved to
send the wagons back to Biggarsberg,
nnd soon long strings of ox wagons
lined the road. Over a thousand wagons took (Lu westerly route to tbe
Laager southwest of Ladysmith. Another couvoy was sent to the foot of
Drakouberg. Large numbers of tents
captured from tlie British at Dundee, and also the ammunition, were
abandoned as worthless. The chief
difficulty was in dismounting "Long

But his plans are kept almost as Bucret

are daily expected iu the Free
Stale, minora of peace are received.
The second edition of Tho Times this

(IIV ASSOCIATED PRESS.)
London,   Mnreh    8. ���(4:15 a. m,)���
Lord Koberts wired yesterday rimming
from   Osfoutein  and  in  the  evening
from Poplar Grove, 14 miles east.    By
an application ol   the eluiuntary principle of  stnitegy.the Boer positions IB
miles long   across his path  havo  been
emptied   and their holders   havo   been
obliged to retire in  confusion.    Nothing was done by   Lord Koberts to (lis-
tuib the symmetry of the deadly ingenuity ul the Boer trenches  in  front of
hini.    He marched out   infantry   estimated Irom commands mimed at 110,000
men aud   Bent   10,000   horseman  aud
iiorse arlillery in a bold  sweep around
the left of   the  Boers, whoreupon  the
Hoer oentio and right  became   nnten-
ablo.   Fifty British fell when thi cavalry came into contact with the Boeis.
The  coirespoudents  differ  as   to the
enemy's strength but  The Daily  Mail
thinks  tho Boers   number  40,000, the
Daily News   estimates   them  at  10,-
000.    As these  figures  come  iroui observations at lioadiiuarters  it   is   dear
tbat Lord   Koberts'   force  was  over-
whelniniiigly superior. He can scarcely
havo fewer than  45,000   meu immediately available as   tho Guards Btigade
reached bim from Lord   Mothuen   this
evening.    Lord    Methuou   now   commands  only   Huuter'a   and tho   local
forces  at Kinibeiley,   some of   whom
huve  goue   towards     Mafeking,    The
Boers do uot yet appear to  appreaciate
the  mobility of  Lord   KobertB coips
whioh was ablo to  strike so swiftly iu
this allair that the enemy had to abandon a gun, much   foingo   and a  large
quantity  of    camp  equipment.    The
Standard cautions Englishmen agaiust
rising to the hoight oE  serene ooutent-
mont which tho   aotuul   position   does
not  justify.    Large numbers of  Boors
are still   in   the   Hold.    Thoy  have  a
wide range of country ov:tr which they
can operate, although   their morale  is
somewhat damaged.    It would   be  too
mnoh to say that   they will not   stand
again.   Lord Koberts has gained a success but it must not be regarded   as  a
signal \iotory  until   we  know   what
damage   has   been indicted and   what
prisoners have been taken.

hns heen deoided tbat Queen Victoria
will visit Ireland next mouth staying
at the vice regal lodge in Dublin
which ban been placed at Her Majesty's disposal by the Viceroy, Earl Cad-
ogan. At no other time since the
Diamond Jubilee hns the Queen been
so conspicuous an object in the publio
mind as she is tonight. This promises to be oven more strikingly the
ease tomorrow. Her Majesty's visit
to Loudon for a drive iu semi-state
from Paddingtou station to Bucking-
hum Palace would be sullloieut in itself to oreate great public manifestations of loyalty, but the announcement this evening, that for the fiist
tune mn,.. the Jubilee, she will tomorrow drive from Buckingam Fol-
aoe along tbe embankment to si.
Peal's Cathedral aud back through
Holboru and Picadilly to St. James,
synchronizing with the new success oi
Lord Koberts, is bonnd to make tomorrow tomorrow a gala dny in the
annals of Londou. Beyond all this is
the announcement of the Qneen'S intention to visit Ireland lor the first
time since 1801. She has uot visited
thnt portion of onuntry siuce the death
of Prince Consort. This is regurded
as one of tbe most remarkable acts of
the Queen's life. No Minister of the
Crown ever .lan .1 to suggest such a remarkable undertaking. "Tho trip,"
said a well iiiformod official, "is lbe
spontaneous suggestion of the Queen
alone and the enthusiasm it is bonud
to oreato when known in Loudon tomorrow cuu scarcely ho estimated. It
is a wonderful proof of her interest
and intense devotion to her people and
her sacrifice in making thu trip at such
a season of year is renewed evidonce of
the keeuness ol her mind in selection
of a proper uct aud at the proper
timo."
Dublin, March 7.���Earl Cadogan an
uouncod the Queen's intended visit
this eveniug ut the drawing room.
The H3WB had previously been telegraphed to the various newspapers and
already known throughout the oity,
cansing muoh goml fooling. Her
Majesty's visit will be ofj a private
character such as she is in the habit of
making periodically to tlie south of
Franco. It wi.'l probably extend for
more than a fortnight. Hor Majesty's
last visit wns in 1801.

number of questions had been put and
answered, Canity once more brought
up the Pncific onhle. Prior asked the
Premier whether it wns his intention
to give representation in tho Cabinet
of British Columbia during the present session of Parliament.
Laurier���I um very sorry that 1 am
not prepared to take the honorable
Rautleiiuin into my confidence, and
therefore I ennnot gratify him with a
reply to his question.
Sutherland, replying to Prior, said
that no settlement had been readied
between the Dominion aud Piovincial
Governments in respect to the removal
of the ludians from Soughces reserve.
In reply to Russell, Fielding said Can-
ndu sent by tho first Contingent to
South Africa 500 inure nion than were
asked for by Britain. There were 14
days between the date of enlistment
aud date of sailing. The Government
offered the secoud contingent on November 2, immediately after sending
tho first. There wero 08 ofticerB, 2,202
men, and 1,1)01 horses from Canada iu
South Africa.
Fielding, in reply to Domville, said
that St. John Sun (Conservative) got
from the Dominion Government between 1882 and 18110, 1123,028 from advertising and printing, lu nnswei to
BnuraHsa. Laurier said Ihat the attention of tho Government wns directed
to a statement of Goschen in the Im-
derial Parliament when the first Lord
of the Admiralty said that be could get
a valuable contiugeut from Australia
and Canada for naval reserve organized
iu conjunction with the Colonies. The
Premier said that no negotiations had
been entered into iu connection witli
the matter bayond au informal communication received by one of the
Minister when iu England.
Casoy, on motion to adjourn,
brought up tbo Pacifio cnble soheme
askiug if il was true that Canada has
received some definite information as
to what was to be done in respect to
the Eastern Extension, obtaining certain privilevgcs from the Australian
Government which would tend to defeat the Pncific cable project. Mulock

said that tbo Eastern Extension had
not yet obtained the privileges referred to Irom Australia.

ouel Steele in reply to the receipt of
the Hag.niade a bri f speech. Dr. Borden congratulated Colonel Steele on
the appearance of the regiment which
he said was as fine a body of men us
could be got together. He had never
known such a marked case of generosity as that of Lord Strathcona iu sending such a regiment to the front.
They could accept the flag as the embodiment of freedom and equal rights
for all men. He was satisfied they
would cover themselves with honor to
Cauada whom they directly represented in South Africa. Sir Charles Tup-
por said that Oolonel Steele and meu
would no doubt do bono', to the Dominion and Empire. While be regretted the loss of blood in South Africa it
would bave tha benefit of cementing
the bonds ot union between Canada
and the Mothoi Country more closely.
He hoped they would return safe to
their homes but if thoy did not their
names would go down to remotest pos-

Victoria, B. O., March 7. ���Onoo
again has the unscrnpulousuess (f ,loe
Martin been illustrated. Thiro was
handed to the press today a copv of an
agreement entered into by Martin and
Kellie, by which the former bound
himself to support the Redistribution
measure if certain conditions were
oomplied with by the Government.
This wae done and Mnrtin surpiiscd
everyone by breaking his pledge and
voting ngninst the measure, thus defeating the Government. Iu nn interview today Matrin declared ho wns in
no hurry in filling the vaoant portfolios in his Cabinet. The Conservatives have called a mooting (or Friday
evening.
Martin tonight said his reason for
breaking tbe agreement witb Kellie
was booause the Government refused
to adopt changes he suggested in Nanaimo constituency. Ho also status
that he has asked no one to enter his
Cabinet with the exception of Brown,
of New Westminster, who refused.
At a meeting of the exeoutive of the
Provincial Liberal Association tonight the following resolutions weio
adopted unanimously :
Resolved, that this executive is emphatically of the opiuion that to conduct the coming Provinoial elections

request of tbe Kossland Liberal Association to call a Provincial Liberal
run volition, i he president be authorized
to wire that in view of thn decision of
���he executive against conducting the
coming Proviucial election on pnrty
linos and having regard to the peculiar
circumstances attending the existing
conditions of affairs it is not expedient
to call a Provincial convention of the
Liberal party at the present time.
Owing to the detontiou of the Vancouver steamer and other causes u

wbo wore at the meeting together with
those that had expressed their views

the close of tho Franco-German war.
The United States could nut be coaxed into uicddliuK. Witb these two
out, the rest of the world dure not say
boo. Vie arrive at the couclusiou that
tho bunkers must make money out of
these financial upheavals, otheiwise
tbey would not be so ready to be
frightened by them.
VEKY   MUCH MIXED.
Mr. Mnrtin has not succeeded at this
writing in filling his Cabinet, and less
than a full Cabinet will uot do. It
will not do, for the reason that the
Lieutenant-Governor made an incomplete Cabinet one of the chief excuses
for dismissing Mr. Semlin. As the
days of failure pass, Mr. Martin's
ohancos of success beco-ie less. They
are taking the crisis qaietly at Viotoria ; from anything that appears
there, the present situation may extend
into summer. Interest in it hus taken
itself off to Ottawa, and it is possible
that Mr. McluneB and Mr. Martin may
find themselves obliged to hurry matters by influences exeroised at the Federal Capital.
The feeling on the Coast would seem
to be that Mr. Mnrliu must be defeated at any cost. It is not vet apparent
that there will he any necessity for de-
featiiiR Mr. Martin. He has undertaken a task beyond his strength. The
Federal Premier intimates that thore
must be an end to the crisis very soon,
otherwise something unpleasant to His
Honor may ocenr. This means that
Mr. Martin must complete bis Cabinet
al once, and appeal to the electors for
their approval. But it does uo look as
If he oan complete his Cabinet, and
in the event of failure he will, of
course, have to retire. Thore promises
to be an extremely interesting time,
however, should he succeed iu form ing
his Government. Tho next step would
bo a dissolution and general election,
aud should Mr. Marti.1 come out of the
contest without a majority to support
him it would be bud for the Lieutenant Governor. Mr, Mclnnes took an
extreme oourse in dismissing Mr. Semlin. There is one thing thut will justify him, and that Ib tbe popular en*
donation of a Premier wbo aocepts responsibility for bis aotion. But no
one supposes for a moment that Mr.
Martin can carry the country, and his
defeat would involve the recall of the
Lienteuant Governor. Tho safety of
the latter depends on Mr. Martin's
failure to form 11 Ministry, and at the
present time it lookB as if failure were
oertain.
Thore nre indications, however, that
the leaders are preparing to meet him
at the polls. From time to time a
hint escapes that u combination is in
process that will urroy almost the full
strength of the two old parties igainst
him. The Turner paity und the Semlin party may have their differencis,
hnt it is suggested thoy ngreo in the
opinion that the misfortune of a Martin Administration must he avoided at
all hazards. All present calculations
would be disturbed by a combination
of that diameter; so much distnrhed,
indeed, that it would bo useless to
speculate on the turn our political
Bffalri arc likely to take. There would
be neither Semlin nor Turner candidates; thu introduction of Dominion
party lines would be headed off; bnt
what are to be the exact nature and
conditions of a division of which Mr.
Mnrliu is to be the chief factor we cau
only await the event itself to ascertain. There is danger iu having one's
mind  unsettled,   to try   to Imagine
where our politics will land us next.
A Mr. Simeon Ford, a bit Of a wag
and a rather shrewd observer, attended a bankers' banquet in Now York a
short time ago, and in the course of a
speech said: "I have observed that
one's reception at a bank varies somewhat with Um condition of the money
market Go in when money is cany,
and ihe  President falls on yonr neck,
calls yon by yunr lirst name, and
cheerfully loans >OU huge sums on
your Balloon Common and Smoke Preferred, and yon go 1111 your way rejoicing. Thu next day, news having arrived   that   a   Gordon     Highlander   has
strained u  tendon while   sprinting
away fiom  11   I ini, In.,an   near  Lady I
The Toronto Mail and Empire says:
"Joe Martin did not lead the Opposition iu British Columbia. On the contrary, he was a third party leading
himself. Yet Governor McliiueH culled upon hini to form a Government.
Matters in the Pacific Province are
very much mixed. That a Martin
Government will straighten tbeni out
is altogether improbable. Mr. Martin
is not popular, aud a general election
will produce a Legislature of factions." Tbat is the danger, although
just at present it is thought tbat all
the other faotions will unite in the
patriotic task of annihilating Mr. Martin.
Down in Newfoundland the Gov
eiuor insists that his next would-be
Premier must guarantee his Ministry a clear majority of tho Assembly,
otherwise some ouo else must be called
in. Out at Victoria the Governor
takes special pains to select the one
man in the Legislature who has neither friends nor followers, and sends him
out to form n Government, with the
promise of giving him n free hand to
try his luck at the polls. More oppo
site principles it would be impossible
to conceive.

Merry Mountain Mulil.
Tho host looking girl lo tin* Pino mountain country wns Susan Natter, nnd Hunan wns oxtretaelj* not to suy foolishly
[ond of Jim Davis, a young man who
was mv chief tlmlicrman In tho season
nml wiio owned and conducted a good
farm In the river bottom na n si.le issue
,iim wns.the catch of tho mountains, and,
like othor moo In that happy class, ho
was careless and stood a fair chance of
losing what outfit to lie his because ho
was I...) sure of it. Susnn was just tho
girl for him, but ho hnd almost worn out
her patlonoe hy his dillydallying policy,
nnd one dny 1 thought the end hnd BUrely
come, nnd it wns nil up with Jim, who
was n favorite of mine as a winner of tho
Susnn stakes,
"I want to boo the host dross pattern
you got in the store, colonel," she snid to
mc ns 1 sat out In front of tlie commissary one dny, "and hcin mitfily portlckelet
I wont yon to wait on me," she added,
with a smirk not usual to Susnn.
"Oh, indeed," 1 snid eliiilllntfy. coins
around behind tlie counter, "something
must he going to happou?'
"1 reckon thai* is," she admitted frank-
' "Good tor you," I laughed, "nnd I'm
glad that Jim lms got his senses nt Inst."
"Jim?" she sniffed disdainfully.
" 'Tniu't Jim e�� for es 1 know."
"Not Jim." I almost should, tat Jim
wns my chosen for her. "Nut JimV Well,
who is itV"
"Oh. Unit's for me to know nud yon to
find out, colonel," she laughed, provok-
tngly, nnd nave me no further satisfaction. She bought the goods nnd went
away, nud two hours later Jim enmc In
from work nnd snid he wns going over
the mountain that night with oue of the
Martin tfrls to a dance.
"By tho wny, Jim," 1 snid, "did yon
know" Susnn Nutter wns going to get
mur lied 7"
"Tliundcrntioii, colonel, no," ho blurted
out. "Nor she ain't, is she?"
"1 guess she is. I sold her a wedding
dress this afternoon, and she told me she
wns."
"Who's she going to marry, colonel*?
he asked, anxiously.
"I don't know. She wouldn't tell me."
"Well, she'll tell me, c.ilone," he snid,
with the lines getting hnrd across his
face nnd little wrinkles of doubt nnd
fear showing between. Jim wus fncing
0 possibility that hnd never presented itself to him In its full strength. >le went
out of the store nnd up the ron.l lending
to old mnn Natter's place. The next
morning he stopped at the store on his
wny to work.
"Did you find out who It wns?" I nsked
him at once, for I wus interested more
than he had been.
""Course I did," lie answered, with confidence.
"Who is It?"
"Me," nnd he laughed the short lunch
of the mnn who hnd been mnde to do
. whnt he knew he should have done  and
whnt he most wanted to do.
"Oh," 1 exclaimed, "is thnt It?" Ami
Inter I discovered that Susnn hnd devi ed

Jim to the point, mnd hy my unwitting,
but by no menus unwilling, assistance
she hud succeeded fully.���Washington

GRAND   OPENING
This afternoon at 2 o'clock we open our doors and present our stock for the careful inspection of the shoppers of Nelson.
Our intention is not to sell today, so you may leave your purses at home, but we shall
be pleased to meet you and let you see the quality of the goods we have selected for you
and place our values and prices against those to which you have been accustomed, trusting to a fair comparison to effect sales for us later.

which would huve caused hh heavy
losses had a day attack been made.
Tho turning movement was ueoossar-
1 ly wide owing to tho nature of the

tillrry horses are much dune up. The
fighting was practically coufined to the
cavalry division which as usunl did
excellently well and Geueral Frenoh
reports that the horso artillery batteries did great execution nniong the enemy,    Onr casualties were about fifty.
