Kitchener Says Lord Roberts
Is a  "Tower of
Strength."
Latest Report from Colonel
Baden-Powell at Kimberley.
ISPBCIAM TO THIS MINKll.)
New York, Maroh 81.���A baton of
mail correspondence received today
from Louilou, contains   the following:
"IharialwayB wished," writes the
hero of the Soudan to a correspond-
ent, "to serve under Lord Roberts, aud
1 inn thankful to have had this opportunity. He is a very tower of
strength." Such magnanimous praise
from General Kitchener, shows not
only that he is above all pettv jealous-
iea hot Hetties definitely the rumors
that Roberts was only a figurehead.
Tbat a man nearly seventy years ol age
conld do all tbat Holierts haB done in
South Africa in the way of mental and
physical labor never ceasen to be a
theme of pruise and wonder iu England.
London, Mnroh   II.���(U��45 a. DM���
Tho Wnr Oftloo has posted tbe follow-
Ing dispatoh from Lord Roberts, dated
Bloemfontein. March 80, evening:
"Reports point to ibe enemy leaving
Brandfort and proceeding in a northerly direotion. Tbe casualties in yesterday's engagement were more numerous than at, firft reported. Oflicers killed two, wounded eight; rank and file,
killed ten, wounded 150, missing
three.''
Bloemfontein, Maroh 80.���Tho attack
njon the Boers holding tho kopjes near
the Karee Siding station, a few miles
south of Brandford.waa made by Tnok-
er'a Seventh Division with the cooperation of French's cavalry. The
attacking troops included a large force
of Australians. Colonel Knight with
fonr hundred New South Wales Mounted lufantry included in Legallais' Brigade attacked the right flank, a long
chain ol kopjes was held by tbe Boers
and.there waa severe firing all nlouk
the lino of attack. The appronob was
very steep like n fortress aud tbu troops
were unable to make headway until
the infantry inado an attaok en tbe
front. The oavalry went around the
tight flank of the Boers aud used their
Viotois-Maxim frboly. An army hospital was established in a cottage under
the shelter of a large kopje. Tho Boor
Hindis came right over the kopje aud
lauded near the hospital, which it
waa found neceBary to evacuate. The
Boera slowly retreated upon Brandlord
taking their dead and wounded with
them. Meanwhile the oavalry including the Australian Horse and the Sidney Lanoeis under Captaiu Cox brigaded with Porters Brigade. The Oatbiu-
eers, SootB GreyB and the Inniskillings
received a sovere shell fire. The Boein
had evidoutly marked the range as
when the troopB advanced tbo enemy's
Hie waB less accurate. Tbe Colonials
displayed great oooluess under lire.
Many harsoB weto killed iu tho cavalry's flank attack. The BoerB fled and
..Il our troopB pushed forward and uow
hold an excellent position upon the
large kopjes recently held hy the
Boers. Tbe farmers are in tho laager,
lighting, leaving the women and tbo
children upon the farmB, which they
are confident the English will not
touoh. Mauy ol these fnrmois would
surrender their arms but for the fear
that tho Johenneshurg Polico would
attaok their faring in revenge for their
ho rtobg. The Boen are known to
hold Brantford iu some strength, probably flvu thousand. Reinforcements
are afraid to move diroot to their support aud are content with holding
their position whioh is threatened by
the_ oavalry advance We have now
scoured a flue natural position fnoing
the huge plain before Brantford. Mr.
Rndyard Kipling was preseut during
Ih light.
cavalry
London, Maroh III.���Even tho details
ol the engagement yesterday at Karoo
Biding station, a few miles south of
Brantford, felled to institute muoh interest here. H appears to hnvo been a
one-sided affair althogh the Boers
Btoutly held thoir ground for about
three bouts, when, foreseeing the dun-
gor of the British cavalry ��L" J' j
their flunks the Burghers withdrew *. "
their main body at Brantfot, whioh
aooording to Lord Roberts, they seem
to have decided later to relinquish
with the view, doubtlesB, of oooupyiug
a prepared position further north.
Thore will probably be a general shifting of camps on the part oi the British, a new position being made the
base of a further advance aB soon nB
the rnilroad shall have been repaired.
Lord Roberts today reported to the
War i illi��� tbat he had received news
from Colonel Baden-Powell at Mafeking up to Maroh 10, when the general health of the garrison and its spirits were good. The locally made guns
search lights and ammunition were
good. Tbe food was holding out well
aud the paper currency whioh the
British Commander had issued wbb
satisfactory.

New 'iork, Mnrch 81.���In describing
tho fnmrul of General Joubert a dispatch to The Herald from Pretoria
says: "The aged President, as he delivered an address of farewell over the
body, wns bowed In grief. Before the
funeial train left Presideut Kroger
broke down completely, sobbing out
again aud again tbat bis brother, his
right hand, was gone. Why should he
alone be spared to live and Bee the
old brigade of men this orother had
created, the brigade tbat had done to
much for the country's liberty, taken
one after another from the people.
'Gen. Joubert'bdeath," said the President, "is an irretrievable loss. His life
aud deeds are the history of the Republic. " Piesident Kruger said it bad
been tbe general's desire to see General
Louis Botha elected in his place.
Frora Cape Town it is reported tbat
President Steyn has gone to Pretoiia
after issuing an order that all British
Burghers refusing to join the Boer
army, shall be shot. Tbe stories of re
fugees, however, are notoriously unreliable. The news from elsewhere is
meager though the last reports from
Natal indioate the seedy clashing ot
the opposing armies.

London,March 81.���Tbe Life Guards,
couriers, carriages and other para-
pbenalia have already gone to the
Emerald Isle which eagerly awaits
Queen Viotoria to follow. How Her

of her doings iu Dublin have quite
overshadowed all othor topios even in
a woek whioh has been marked by the
annual Intor-VarBity boat race, tbe
resignation of the Duke of Norfolk uh
Postmastor-General, the announcement
ot the Delagoa Bay Railway award
and the rumors of possible war in tbe
l'ar Eiiet. Great Britain's own war
in South Africa has almost been forgotten, so uninteresting line been the
progress of peace in the Orange Free

Boers Threaten  Retaliation
for Transporting Prisoners to St. Helena.
(HY ASSOClATl'lf) PUKSS.)
London, April 1.���(5 a. m.)���The
War Office issued no further news tonight and the few dispatches reoeived
from the seat of war, benr evideuce of
having beeu delayed by the Censor.
According to a special dispatch from
Pretoria, dated yesterday, Lord Roberts has oommenoed hiB advance northward. The dispatch says that they aro
daily skirmishing and tbat a big battle ia imminent. This, bowover, may
refer to the operations preoedmg the
engagement at Knreo Siding, which
has apparently cleared thu wny,as well
as secured an advantageous position
wbenoe the next operations may be
conducted. Tuokera' Division is uow
strongly occupying tbe Boers camp at
Karee Siding witb tbe way clear to
Braudfort whioh is reported nlready
evacuated.
Orders have been reoeived at Cape
Town for the 8tb DiviBiou to be disembarked and sent uorth immediately
on its arrival there. Tbe Boer forces
in the neighborhood of Paardeberg are
reported to bo actively engaged in
marauding aud in attempting to capture British horses left on the veldt
owing to tbeir weak condition. Six
hundred Barkley refugees, sent back
irom Cape Town are stranded at Kimberley and the military authorities are
refusing to allow tbem to proceed.
Muoh Kaffir looting is reported at
Klipdatu. An active campaign is in
progress on the part ot the loyalists of
Cape Colony for the annexation of the
Republics and the puuisbment of the
Colonials wbo Berved in the Boer army.
Meetings in support of its polioy bave
been held in many important centres
under the auspices of the Sooth African League. The transportation of
prisoners to St. Heleua is arousing
tbe anger of Boers who threaten to retaliate by Bending British prisoners to
Komatzpoort, reputed to be_the worst
fever den in South Afrioa. The transport Norfolk Bailed from Southampton
yesterday for Capetown and had an
enthusiastic send off.
Bloemfontein Maroh 81.���The Boers'
position yeetoray was one of great
strength. Only the turning movement
ot General French and Major Legalais,
the latter commanding the Mounted
Infantry, on their flank, insured the
BritiBh success. Tho Bhape of the
kopjee wbb irregular. The Boers' right
flank consisted of a long hill with
wooded sides connected with < the
main position by a long low ridgo
tbiokly wooded. Major Legalais was
unable to move until late iu the day
while General French moved early.
Thu latter made a wide dotour towardB
tbe rear of the Boers but was unable
to complete the movoraent before tbo
Boers porcoivod his intention and
abandoned the position. They retired
iu good order botweou General French
aud Major Legalais, where the main
body of Boers with four guns hold un
exoelleut position ou the edge ol a deep
Donga whence tbey shelled Guuerul
French. The infantry attack wbb
delivered ut midday, when the Nor-
folks opened the fight by seizing the
lower slopes of un ugly kopje. Steadily tbey worked thoir way to tho crest
of tbo bill where the   engagement
was hotly contested. The Lincoln-
shires occupied tho hill on tbe right
proteotlug the 18th Buttery, which
dragged its gons up hill with tbo groat-
eBt difficulty and opened a heavy fire at
close rauge, meanwhile the City Imperials, getting in touch with the
Boers, tho remainder of Tucker's Division advanced across in a Humi-oirclo
through which a railway ran. It wns
very open ground nnd the Hours in
the detached kopje aud ridge did heavy
tiring. In spito of this, however, the
British moved on as steadily hb if on
parade. The advance was protected
by guns whioh vigorously Hhelled the
BoerB. About 4 o'clock tbo British
advanced simultaneously and occupied
the Boer position, from which au excellent view could be had of Brand-
fort, 15 miles distant. Tho Boers loss
is unknown.
WILSON
Conservative Leader Has an
Interview With Premier
Macdonald.
Campaign  Must Be Fought
on Party Lines. Says
Mr. Wilson.
(SPECIALS TO Till''. MINER.)
"Winnipeg, Man., Maroh 81 ���The
Winnipeg Tribune publishes the following tonight:. "Mr. Charles Wilson, Q. C., of Vauoonver, is in the
oity today ou bis return from a
month's visit to Montreal and other
eastern cities, Mr. Wilson accompanied by Senator Loughead, of Calgary,
and Senator Kirohoffer, of Brandon,
paid a visit to the local Cabinet Ministers this morniug aud had a brief interview with Premier MaoDonald.
"You are the leader of the Conservative party iu British Columbia, are
you not?" was asked Mr. Wilson by a
reporter. He replied affably : "Weill
don't know, some people say I am and
some I am not. I suppose it is between
nie and some of tbe others. Cotton
aud the rest of them will have to get
into line aud fight the campaign on
straight party principles or they will
find themselves in tbe rear. The trouble is that there are several who have
held office so long that they think
tbey have a life lease of it, and thete
are a great many others who want to
be made Attoruey-Geueral, Minister
of Agrioulture, Provincial Treasurer
or something ot that kind. That is tbe
trouble with the Conservative Party.
Just before J left Vancouver a mouth
ago, Sir Charles Tupper gave an expulsion of opinion against party lines
and laid there were things a party
government could not handle. An example of this was Confederation. He
mentioned two or three more, and a
fuurth oiroumstance which a party
govrnment could not handl j was Joe
Martin, the bold, bad man. Now I dj
uot see tbe use of such luetics. Tbere
is nothing to be gained by setting your
opponents on a pedestal as lions to be
feared. If any other man than Sir
Charles Tupper had said the like be
would bave been brought to tusk by
the Conservative party for it."
"Do yon think Martin will win?"
"Well, as to that I can only say tbat
I hope he will be very well lioked."

Persistent Rumors of War in  tho Far
Enst.
London, March 81.���Russian activity has beeu the international factor
of the week, and diplomatic functionaries attached to the Court of St. James
are asking themselves what does it
mean and whero will it end. The
Russian ambassador smiles and assures
his friends that it means nothing, but
just the same speculation is acute.
There are many men of fair standing
and a good knowledge of international
under current, wbo are willing to say
that war between Russia and Japnu
has now ooiue within a measurealile
distance. Of these Henry Norman,
who bas just returned from a trip to
Russia is one. But the Associated
Presa learns tbat no such view is taken
by tha British Foreign Office, which
during recent troubles sized up the
international situation with wonderful
correctness. The uext few weeks may
bring up a tremendous war scare but
tbe silent faot remains that Japan is
not ready tor hostilities. Alarming
telegrams Irom tho Fnr Ennt may increase aud multiply nnd Korea my
seem to bo on tbo verge of annexation
by Russia, but the calm ol Downing
Street is not likely to be disturbed.
Korean matters have been arranged by
treaty and Lo.d Salisbury does not
believe Russia intends to break th*
treaties though ber relations with
Japnu may become Btraiueii to a serious point. As far as Great Britain is
oonoerned, Russia's military rather
than naval activity is oertainly interesting though the press is not allowed
to take up its cue iu this matter. The
Foreign Office, while only faintly interested in Korea, boing Bure tbat no
serionB trouble will result there, is
devoting careful iuvestigatiou to the
wurlike preparations ocourring in
South Russia. There seems no louger
to be any doubt that Turkey, lor her
tardinoSB in meeting the Russian de-
mauds regarding railway concessions
is being menaced by hor northern
nieghbor and many signs point to tbe
lact that Russia intends to settle her-
! sejf in the northeast of Asia Minor
i-rfbiosB Turkey gives in. To whut extent British moral assistance can be
given to Turkey, notwithstanding the
Russian demands, is a questiou whicb
is occupying Lord Salisbury's attention to au oven grenter extent than
tbo South Africau war. Iu view of
the troubles in South Africa, it is
more tbnn possiblo that Turkey will
meet tne demands and that Russian
troopB will be withdrawn. The scare
about Rnssiau troops concentrating
in Afghanistan apparently atone from
this movement in the direction of
Turkey in Asia Minor, nnd Afghanistan has passed into tho category of
peaceful unintersting speooh.
Tho lack of all interest from the developments in South Africa, except
the death of General Jonbert, which
brought forth most generous tributes
from all classes iu Great Britain home
politics, havo undeservedly claimed a
large share nf attention. Parliament
has soaroely been as instructive uud
interesting as the aldeniinnio proceedings of the smallest city in the United
States, its tremendous mentality being
largely confined to dismissing the relative merits of flogging nnd detention
ns   punishment   for juvenile offenders,
Tho publication of dispatches relating to the actions of the Nnvul Brigades with Generals Methnen nnd
Bnller, give n line idea of the splendid
work accomplished by the snilors, nnd
among those singled ont for distinction and mentioned in dispatches, is

PORTFOLIO I
roctly reports the opinions held by the
busiuess men ot thu East with whom
he oame in contact. Those opinions
are of a character to set British Columbians pondering most sericusly.
Mr. Martiu is much better known arid
understood in tbe East than he is
here. If he were to succeed in capturing tho couutry and getting himself
entrenched in power, the distrust
that is so etronlgy entertained of bim
among the business men of Eastern
Canada would unquestionably affect
ih" ilmv ol capital into the Province.
Can we afford to invite ,m aggravation
of the present unsutisfatory conditions? Neither Mr. Martin nor any
other man living could utterly ruin the
prospects, of British Columbia; but if
we shake confidence in tho Proviuce
us a field for investment by petition
ourselves in the hauds of a demagogue
nnd wreokor, we shu 11 pay a penalty
in the shape of arrested development.
Why should we ruu the risk?
They wero colleagues nt tbo time these
compllmonts    were    exchanged.    The,
most curious thing   about it   was tbnt
both were right.

THE LABOR TROUBLE.
There was something overlooked, it
would seem, in the announcement
that the Nelson Association would
adopt tbe Sandon scnle from this date
forward. Miners will be paid $!i. 26,
wbich is satisfactory, but nothing was
said of muokers. Wo are not informed of the intention of the mine owners
in regard to them, bnt cannot believe
thnt thoy propose to content tbemselves
with a half step towards a settlement.
Tbe Sandon scale oalls for $8.00 per
day for muckers, and for ill the difference it will make the owners will no
doubt round off tbe gracefulness of
their concession and deal with muckers
with tbe same liberality ns with hammermen.
WHY, INDEED?
There was a hot time in tho new
town of I'unconvor tho other night.
The occasion wns the Liberal meeting
oalled to eleot delegates to tho convention. Tbo convention itself is culled
by the Exoontive of the Vancouver As-
���'iii-iat inn, a purely local body, having
uo authority to speak or act In the
name of the Proviuce. A formal protest was lodged against the convention on that accouut. The proceedings
were wild. Mr. Martin's friends weie
tbere in force aud determined to carry
things witb a high hand. Appeal
was made to know if tho procedure nt
tbo convention was to bo subject to
the authority of the Provincial Association or of the Vnncouver branch of
it. The Chairman replied: "I will
sny tbnt the Vancouver Executive have

The trouble and expense of u journey
to Vancouver may be spared; forty
delegates were elected iu thnt city
the other night to endorse Mr. Martin
and to advance him to tho leadership
of the Liberal pnrty of the Province,
and they "will engineer it to the finish." Tbe convention is already as
good as held.
In our Victoria correspondence two
or three days ago brief reference was
made to some views held by Mr. Beaven���tbe Hon. Mr. Beaven, us be is
styled in 'I lie Colonist, on what authority we do not know. The full report of Mr. Heaven's ioterivew is now

Company tbat is strong iu nn.nes. Tbo
President is Mr. H. S. Howlaud, who is

"The v irious gentlemen whom I have
mentioned nnd outers equally as prominent in business circles, ure all of the
OpiUlOU that the dicci'SH of Mr. Martin
ut ibe polls Would oca serious blow to
ihe welfare ol this Pioviuce. . . It
was the same story everywhere among
Ihe orominent business mon nf Cauada, and from what I have henrd I am
sure that Mr Martin's success will result in ill- ultuost complete with-
ilniwal of capital for investment purposes from British Coloiiihin. Everybody admits tbe great possibilities for
legitimate investment which exist
here under reasonable conditions,
but these nre not sufficient to conuter-
bnlniici. tho genernl dread engendered
hy Mr. Martin's political reputation."
Many ol our readers know Mr. Heaven belter thnn The Miner can pretend
to do. We understand, however, tbat
he is a gentleman of good reputation,
nnd one of the last to come buck with
idle stories or to impose false ones on
the community in which he lives.
Less thnn two yenrs Bgo he was him-
self ontiusted with the task of forming a <ioveiunmet, and hu has been a
member of more than one Ministry.
He is, therefore, �� gentleman of experience and ol good standing. We have
eiory reason to   believe   tbat   be   oor-
Because Mackenzie, Maun & Co. retained Messrs. Bodwell, Davis, and
Gregory to protect certain railway
interests of theirs that were up before
British Oolmbiu Legislature, Mr. Martin, nt his meeting in Viotoria the
other night, aooused these gentlemen
of having sold their principles, and
charged tbat they were now opposing
him because be had resuned the plunder from the grasp of those robber
contractors. Mr. Martin did not tell
half the story. He knows tbat bis
abuse of those distinguished members
of the B. C. bar was wanton and undeserved, and probably snspeots that it
will bave no more effect than would
the hooting of on owl. If ho had been
honest he would havo explained that
his violent hatred of Mackenzie and
Mann was owing to tho fuct that they
made a deal for the Dauphin railway
in Manitoba with Mr. Sifton, shortly
after Mr. Martin so unexpectedly let
himself out of the Government, and
that it was Mr. Sifton instead of Mr.
Martin wbo gathered in the incidental
advnntnges und soon afterwnrdn betook himself to Ottawa. Mr. Martin
hates Mr. Sifton worse than he hates
rattlesnakes, nnd it waB /^"vi-iso he
could not forgive him the' L.'._ '-in
deal that be despoiled Mackenzie and
Mann of thoir V. V. & E. charter.
His public policj jb nnd nlwny.i has
been founded very largely on hatred.

Thnt consistent mid unbending Liberal paper, Tbo Greenwood Times,
says: "It is evident that whatever
may bo the result of the convention nt
Vauoouvor, the Liberal party will lie
broken Into factious, because of Martin's assumption of tho Provincial
leadership. Mnrtin is not tho mnn
who will step down and out if the
Vancouver convention is against him,
neither will a large body of Lilierals
follow him. Tho unfortunate condition of allium within tho party is
mainly due to the fooli-h action of
the Governor in culling upon Martin,
who in turn announces himself ns the
lender of tho Liberal party. Martin
can never bo the leiulei of a united
Lihernl pnrty in this Province, anil the
only hope for the party lies in tinning
him down. If the Liberal) who tnse
pnrt in tho Vancouver convention hnve
the iuterests of the puny at heart they
will do this. If they wish to wreck
the party thoy WlllendOTM Joe Martin
ns their leader." Anyone witli a grain
of sense, nnd who is acquainted with
Mr. Martin's past, knows how true all
tbis is.

Described by a Noted Author.
The developments of the war in South Africa, its serious conflicts, the deeds of heroism of its participants, the great massing of Boer Armies and the unprecedented forward
movement of British troops to the Cape, coupled with a universal desire for information
concerning a country cf which very little is known, have intensified public interest in the
subject to an extent hitherto unequalled. With .characteristic entetprise, this paper will
supply the demand for South African Literature that present conditions have created. To
this end we now offer our readers the first number of a magnificent art series to be issued
in weekly parts under the title of "Glimpses of South Africa in Peace and War." Illustrating and describing the current military events of the day and the sights and the
scenes throughout South Africa by aid of camera, pencil and pen, presenting a pictorial

They Alone Stand In the Way
of a Settlement of the
Trouble.
Hold Out for a Uniform Scale
of Three Dollars Per
Day.
Ihe iinomiccment in The Minor yen-
t���nluy iiioriiinK thnt thu mint) managers bad deolfled to adopt tho Bloom
Boole of WBgei w���� received with B
grent fled of Joy by inerohjnti nnd
Lin.��� men ol the Oity, who ilrmly
believed thut this concession ou the
pnrt of the mnnnnern would lead to n
full settlement of the riiffloultlei so lnr
dh tho Nelnon diotrint wan concerned.
Hut there wns one point in the agreement adopted hy the mine roanatfera
which wn�� not aooeptnhlo to the miner). There demand for *:i.25 for hiuiri
drillers, deducting; *1 fer bonrd, was
ooniiled with B demand for |!t for
mnokers.tlio Hume Honle whicli is being
pnid in the Slocan. Tho mine muna-
g���rn offer the miners from 11.50 to *!)
for imiokers, because they claim there
ia .1 grent difference in tho nn'omit of
work different men nun do. They do
jot want to pay n poor workmen the
aamo wage as they wonld be perfectly
willing to pay a good man. To the
good men they are willing to pay |8 n
day bnt thev do not want to bind
themselvea to pay the same amount to
lenn tmpatle men.
This is the only point which re-
niniua to be nettled. If tbe mine malingers and minors oan get together nnd
agree upon a settlement so fur aa the
muckers aro concerned the pickets
will be at once oalled from the roads
leading tn tbe Athabanca and Granite
mines and the manage ra of both properties will he able to pnt all the men
to work that they require. The miners, however, insist upon a sonle similnr to tbut agreed to between the mine
managers aud miners   of  the   rjlocnn.

Thero was an entire nnanimity of
opinion when the question of the introduction, of party lines into Provincial politics was introduced aud n
resolution of James Bunnermnn, seconded by W. Rntherforri, that the
Nelson Liberal Association pet itself
on record as being most emphatically
opposed to the introduction of party
lines into Provincial affairs, met with
the enthusiastic approval of tbe meeting.

i fore   the   Vancouver   Convention   the

BOAT RACE.
Cambridge Wins from Oxford In the
57tti Annual Contest.
Pntnoy. EnK-, March 81.���The fifty-
seventh annual tmat race between
oiews representing thH Universities of
Oxford and Cambridge was rowed today, over the usual comse fiom Putney to Mortlake and was won by Cambridge. The two boats took up their
psitious at 1:50 p. m., and started at
1 :58. Cambridge promptly took tbe
lead. At Walrtetis, abont one mile from
the Btart, Cambridge was two lengths
ahead. Passing Crab Tree Cambridge
was 14 seconds ahead and off tbe saccharine works the Light Blues were
leading by six length". At Hammersmith Bridge, less than one mile and
three quarters from tbe start the lead
of Cambridge had been reduced to five
lengths. But the Light Blues maintained tho lead. At the Lead Mills
they were rowing 88 to Oxfords 34.
At the Doves, about one mile and
seven-eighths from the start the lead
of Cambridge had been reduced to fonr
lengths. But at Chiswick Church,
about two miles and three-quarters
from the stait, the race had developed
into nothing mote lhau a procession.
As the Cambridge boat passed
Thomeycroft's, neanug the three mile
post, tbe Light Blues led by ten
langths. Oxford then began to show
signs of distress aud at tbe Devonshiie
Meadows, over three miles from tbe
start, eleven lengths separated the
boatB. At Barnes Bridge, about three
and a half miles from the starting
place, Cambridge was forty lengths
ahead. Tbe Light Blues then eased off
and won by about twenty lengths.
The Oxford crew was greatly distressed at tbe finish. The race was favored
by magnificent weather. The bright
sunshine attracted immense crowds
which, from an early hour, congregated along the course, on steamers, in
boats, on the bridges and on the buildings overlooking tne scene. Every
point of vantage was crowded, in spite
of the gem ml belief thut it would be
a cue sined mniest Oxford won tbe
toss and ono* the .������u.iey Station. The
crews (in! in ... 'i at 1 :.j0 p. ni. Cambridge finished very fresh and paddled
past tbe stake l>oat at Mortlake thn
easiest of winners. Oxford, however,
came in for a full share of cheering.
The official time wus 18 minntes, 17
second j.
LETTER FKOM AFRICA.
With      the     Life    Onards    at    tbe
Front.
Tbe following letter was sent to Mr.
Elwell of Foit Steele, from his brother wbo is with the Life Oaards in
Sonth Africa:
Strnmfoutein's Farm Camp. Expedi-
tioning Force.Son h Africa.���"This is
the first chance of writing to yon since
leaving Cape Town. We had a week
at Maitlaud Camp, to recruit the
horses.and then we hnd an awful three
days journey to DeAar and fiom theie
to Renshurg Camp. We were Beven
men in a carriage and some carriages
had no places to sleep in, so we had to
sit upright all through the hot night
which was so wretched. Simply nothing to eat or drink,and things were so
expensive, two shillings a small bottle
for beer, three pence for a cup of
coffee, and bread a shilling a smnll
loaf, but at last we arrived here about
three days ago. We have had a very
rongb time; nothing to eat bnt salt
bully beet and hard biBonits, and last
Saturday we got some fresh meat,
and a few hours' sleep. We bad been
ont since - :H0 in the morning, got in
and finished about 11 :;!() a. rn. and got
the horses put away and all had a
���leep nntil dinner time, when at last
tbe grand dinner of stewed mutton
arrived. We all sat down and were
just in tbe middle of it when we
heard sneb a bang about a mile away
and a shell oame just over our tent
and fell iu the doorway of a tent nf the
2nd Life Guards. Up we all got iu a
moment and then another one came
and we all mounted in a minute,everybody swearing like anything nt having to lesvo nearly all onr good dinner. Well, the Boers pot seventeen
shells into onr camp. It wns a most
miraculous thing that there was no
one hurt. The officers said it was
aimply extraordinary. We were all
out, artillery, etc., in less than five
minntes, and we did not get hank nn
tll 10 p. m. We had nothing to eat
nntil next morning, and I hnd lo go
ont nn pinket all th ��� night and go to
the field the next day. One has no idea
of the hardships. We go for six or
seven (lavs nt a time without taking
onr boots off, on gnard five and six
rl.ru si i< -ini'M snd then sometimes we
all get pp lor   about an hour   or
two von   hear    "Turn   Ont"

deied to retire. Well we were on the
edge of a ridge ("A" Troop) tlmt is
my troop. We had our photograph
taken about twenty minutes before, by
an engineer officer, which included
Mr. Ward, three others and myself, so
look ont for it in one of the papers.
Well, things were very quiet for half
an hour, when a bullet came just over
Thompson's head and mine and we
dared not show ourselves as two were
right ou tho top of the hill looking
out with spy glasses. Bnt these beggars crawled right np within 20 yards
of all ot ns, and by Gad, tbe bullets
oame round like rain. Then we heard
Major Carter shout out "Retire.'
Thompson, myself and two others
were the last to leave.
IN THE PHILIPPINES.
Execution of Filipinu Loadors MoraleB
aud Gonzules.
Washington, March 81.��� The execution of Mooralos and Gonzales, the
Philippine leaders, it is said at the
War Department, marks the inauguration of a new policy in the Philippines. This is the exeontion of the
death sentence, by the order from mili-
taiy officers in command, in tbu cases
of persons, natives or others, convicted and sentenced by military commissions, organized nnder the rules of
war. Morales and Gou/.ales were convicted by a military commission of the
mnrder of Filipinos and were sentenced to hang near Bayan, March 80, and
the press dispatches from Mauiln show
the ssntence wns carried out. No official report of the oase has beeu received
at the War Office fi it is stated that
General Otis bas acted entirely on bis
own responsibility in tho nintter, under authority conferred by the Articlos
of War.

WINDERMERE CORRESPONDENCE
There is quite a flurry in Peterbor
ougb town lots. Prices are firm at a
100 per cent, advance. ���
Peterborough and Athalmer saw
mills nie working overtime.
W. S. Santo & Co., Peterborough,
have filled their store with nndonti-dly
tbe largest stock in the interior of
British Columbia.
Prospectors have already arrived
upon tho scene, and are preparing for
the prospeoting season which will not
open for some two months let.
The Ooiumbia River and Windermere Lakes are now entirely free of
ice. .Navigation between the main C.
P. R. line and this point bus already
praotically commenced. Undoubtedly
tbe town of Peterborough will catch
tbe mining trade on account of its
geographical position ns all trails and
roads conneot there.
The Delphine mine bas improved
very ranch with the development now
going on, the ore house being full
with high grade ore, and a large
amount blocked ont in the mine. Tbe
ore will be shipped to the Trail
Smelter in the near fnture.
Extensive preparations are now being made to develop the enormous
showing of carbonate ore on the Paia-
disc group on Spring Creek.
Arrangements are now made to develop fully fifty properties as soon ns
the snow permits.
Everything points to a big rush of
proBpeotora and mining men the coming season.
The Silver Tip is another property
that is showing np exceedingly wall
witb the development now going on.
Anothei saw mill is now being
ereoted in the Yv..w4.J- of Peterborough.
