The New Leaders Arrive at the Seat of War
Ready for Business
There is Still Firing About  Ladysmiih.   The Loudon

War-���The Seizure Question-
London, Jan, II.���11 m. 1���During
he interlude of npp-ironl military Inactivity ami offloinl secrecy. Lord Roberts and Loril Kitchener have arrived
nt the scat of war. It is assumed Unit
tbeir clear vision, supported by 85,000
men who are due to arrive in South
Africa within thirty days, will alter
the situation and that the fourth
month of the cainpui.n will witness
the beginning of victories for the Hritish arms. They are not, however, ex-
neoted to produce definite results for
some days hut their mere presence "ill
restore tho confidence of the men si
the front. Lord Roberts funis 120,000
men on the defensive or watching fnr
an opening Lord Methuen's heilth,
according to the Daily Mail, 1ms tun
ken rlown and the Field M rsliall may
relieve linn.   Possibly some others will
bo relieved   of  Important  commands.
There iR certainly plenty of rank 111
evidence in South Africa. In addition
to the Kick' Marshall, tin re B.C two
lull generals, four lientennul genrruls,
and IS or 14 major-generals.
The list of victims nf disease issued
by tho War Office gives ._ ilcith- from
enteric fever ami ilyscutry in Lady
smith in four days, revealing Uf 1.11 1
that the bcselged nre existing amid
iimi sanitary conditions.
The standard summarizes the general situation thus: "The campaign
has lasted three mouths. We have
something like 110,000 troops in Smith
Africa. With this huge army distributed   over the   cuuntry   we   arc still
powerless to relieve thne garrisons
from investment We have still to see
large portions of iiotli Colonies In lhe
bands of.the enemy. We have driven
the Invaders biok at no single point.
We arc actually further from lie hostile frontier than we were on tbe dnj
thnt tlm ultimatum was delivered.
Tho work which Ministers believed
could be effeotually performed with
1)5.000 men Ims not been done."
The authorities hnve urged tbe ci n -
mlltee r.r the Yeomanry hospital fnud
to provide for BS0, Instead ol 160 ids.
and the committee is appealing foi til
least M0.000.

London, Jan, 10.���Sir Charles Dilke,
member of Parliament, speaking at
Cindeifoi'il tonight declare! that he
was prepared to ask in the House of
Commons whether the Government
had taken sufficient right steps in the
military situation with due regard to
the facts known at the time.
"The languaxe Lord Salisbury eni-
ployed in Parliament," he continued,
"constituted an unnecessary menace,
tlie vniciug which Mr, Balfour said it
was a Government's lirst duty to nh-
st.iin from���nnd made war prolinhlo.
Mure than this, tlie Government is re
sponsible for the fact that the outset of
the war were without yvtns enough for
one army corps."
sir Charles criticized the Government's refusal of oupn.lo colonial
troops, qualified to ride and shoot and
theii acceptance instend of these ol
in iiiiii Imperial Yeomanry. Of the latter, he said it had been allegl d that
thev were neither good horsemen imr
.mill shots. In his own opinion, the
Yeomanry, he said, probably redo well
enough hut there was a very ureal
doubt as to shooting capabilities of a
large percentage.
Loudon, Jan. 11.-The Calcutta correspondent ol tbe Daily Mail says.
"While the ollicials lament Hint no
alarm is felt concerning Afghanistan,
il is quite true i have goml reason to
believe that the Indian Government
has received disquieting Information
regarding Russian movements in thi'
direction of Persia. Russia is taking
advantage of thu Trnnsvaal trouble to
strengthen her urninnieuln nnd to push
forward her (imposts along the Persian
frontier with a view of ultimate annexation, a design in which Germany
wonld probably acquiesce in consideration of receiving railway concessions,

Electors of the West Ward will do a
generous thing if they do not forget
the absent candidate today. Mr. Fit-
land has duties which bave called bint
elsewhere, nml he was obliged to leave
hi 1 candidature to the favor of the people. We hope and believe they will see
that his interests do not suffer by his
Ilea-.. 11- would reoeivu little attention mi the morning of election
day. The voter who has postponed
his decision until this late hour is
not likely to be influenced by argument. Between Mr. Fletcher and Mr
Houston the publio judgment has been
formed, and it only neuls to be recorded. That will be doue through
the instrumentality of tlie ballots, nnd
the principal work now remaining is
to see that they are dnly deposited,
Mr.    Fletcher   should   be   our   next
Mayor.    A   good   deal   is allowed to a
mining camp   in   both   manners   and
conduct; but Nelsou iii something more
tlinn   a   tinning   camp, nnd   it   has a
rigbl to look   for   both   manners   and
conduct  that are   befitting   its character.    As Chief Magistrate of the City,
Mr. Fletcher will be equal to any dutv
and will do credit to any position that
can possibly   be  associated   with  lhe
office.    As   a   man of   character    and
Standing,    the   respectability     of   the
town will lie safe in bis   keeping; as a
man of   ability,   we can entrust  him
with the tusk of seeing   that   its business   affairs are conducted with nietb-
ud and   elliciency.    A mistake will be
made   if  the   electors   do   not   regard
tin as things and govern themselves accordingly���a mistake   wo may run bitterly   before    tho   year   is   out.
Tho Mayor should be supported with n
good business Council. AgainstMr.Madden personally   wo   do   not know thnt
any one has n word to say; but in other Provinoes of   the   Dominion,   with
more knowledge and experience of municipal   affairs    than   we   can   claim
here, his occupation is regarded asu bar
to bis election   ns   a   municipal representative.   In souii! of those Provinces
the law expressly disqualifies the bolder of a tavern   license, for   the   reason
that the two positions   are believed   to
tie Incompatible.    Mr.   Irvine, another
candidate for the   West   Ward,   stands
for   Mr.    Houston   and   Mr.    Houston
alone. The three remaining candidates,
Dr. Arthur, Mr. Ferland, and Mr. McKillop, stund for the people, and
because they do they should be elected. Mr. Morrison iu tbe East has hnd
municipal experience, and in thnt re-
-pi "t possesses an advantage over the
other candidates ; but a safe oboioe will
be made in this Ward if the electors
decide between him, Mr. Byers, Dr.
Hall, and Mr. Wilson. .Six out of these
.even named will make u cnpiitiln and
said Council.
Mr. McKillop and Dr. Arthur will
not complain if the electors of West
Ward place Mr Ferland at the head of
the poll, But they themselves must
be goml secondd, i r a good second and
There should he hesitation about the
West Ward. The Miuer would r.nt
tiarin a hair of the head of either Mr.
Madden m Mr. Irvine, lint it will be
better to have in the Council, Dr. Ai-

The  Kenutui  Why au  Indian  l'rir.. ���
Xo Louver Ugea Tolincco,
Once upon n time, whether near or reunite does not uiattcr, there lived a great
Indian potentnte, to whom is .1 no the
honor, though be was unaware of it hitu-
Kelf, uf having 1 n an ancestor uf our
famous cricketer. This .rent lord's rule
spread far aud wide, his I lood wns of the
bluest, his caste was of tbe highest. But
be was a man with n weakness, if weakness it can be called. He was an inordinate lover of tobacco���the pipe, so to
speak, wns never out of his mouth.
One day this eastern votary of "My
Lady Nicotine" was out hunting���like his
descendant, he was a great sportsman���
and by Bome chance became separated
from his followers. Alone in the depths
nf a forest and tired with an arduous
chase, he sat down to wait until ho wns
found. A meditative .niukc wns just the
thing to while the lime away. The king
felt the desire strong In him, but alas bis
pipe hearer waa ainmig those front wliuin
he hnd strayed. When nu ordinary man's
longing is balked, it usually becomes
keener nnd inure intense. What, then, if
a great ruler's taste cannot be gratified,
aud that, ton, his pet one? As time went
ou hi- anguish became terrible. Indeed,
it had ..tiiie near an articulate cry of
"My kingdom for a pipe," when the
sound of approaching footsteps caugbt
his ear. He wus ull attention In u moment. A peasant appeared and, recognizing his master, saluted him,
"Hast thou n pipe and tobacco?" demanded the king.
"I have, your highness," replied the
man wouderingly.
"Then give them to mc. I wish to
The peasant gazed for a moment in
wilii astonishment, then, with a low
salaam, replied:
"Your highness must forgive me, but I
"You cannot?   Why not?"
"Your highuess well knows that whatever touches his lips must never have
touched another's."
The king still Insisted, but the man was
quietly and respectfully firm.
"Yum- bighness forgets the greatness of
his euste nud the meanness of mine."
At length the reaction came iu tbe
king's breast. He saw how near he had
heen tu losing the most precious posses-
slon of tlie Hindoo���bis caste���for a mere
temporary gratification of little account.
And su violently did he resent his weakness that he resolved from that moment
never to smoke again. Not only did he
keep his word, but he made an ordinance
prohibiting the use of tohacco in his family forever. To us westerns this seems
nu extreme, even absurd, use of power.
Nevertheless "Itunji" docs not smoke.���

Kens,,ns w..ulii t'eceive liitlu attention on the morning of election
dny. The voter who has postponed
his decision until this late hour is
not likely to be influenced by argument. Between Mr. Fletcher and Mr
Houston Hie public judgment has been
formed, and it only minis to be recorded. That will be done through
the Instrumentality of the ballots, and
the priuoipal work now remaining is
to see that they are duly deposited.
Mr. Fletcher Hhould he nui next
Mayor, A good deal is allowed to 11
mining oamp in both manner- and
conduct I but Nelson is something more
than a mining oamp, and it has a
right tn look for both manners and
conduct that are befitting its character. As Chief Magistrate of tlie City,
Mr. Fletcher will be eqnal to any duty
and will do credit to any position that
can possibly he associated with thu
office. As a man of character and
standing, the respectability of tbo
town will be safe in his keeping; as a
lean of ability, we can entrust him
���with the tusk of seeing ihat its business affairs are conducted with method and etlicicncy. A mistake will be
made if the electors do not regard
these things and govern themselves accordingly���a mistake we may rue hit
terly   before   tho   year   is   out.
The Mayor should be supported witli n
good business Council. AgninstMr. Madden personally we do not. know that
any one has a word to say ; but in other PiovinoeB of  the  Dominion,   with
mere knowledge and experience of municipal affairs thou we can claim
here, his occupation is regarded as a bar
to his election as a municipal representative. In some of those Provinces
tho law expressly ilisirualities the holder of a tavern license, tor the reason
that the two positions are believed In
be incompatible. Mr. Irvine, another
candidate for the West Ward, stands
for   Mr.    Houston   and   Mr.    Houston
alone. The three remaining candidates,
Dr. Arthur. Mr. Ferland, and Mr. McKillop, stand for the people, and
because they do tbey should be Bleated. Mr. Morrison in tbe Enst has had
municipal experience, and in that reaped possesses sn advantage over the
other candidates; bnt a safe choice will
bi made 111 this Ward if the electors
decide between him, Mr. Byers, Dr.
Hall, and Mr. Wilson. i-Six out of these
seven named will make a capable and
safe Council.
dtiys ago, the knowledge of it might
have had a most beneficial influence ou
thu situation at Victoria, ami might
possibly have been of some use lo II u
Canadian contingent in South Africa,
While in Nelson we go around in dread
of that august individual, few of us
we are sure ever suspected he wus a
pet son of such tremuudonscousei|neiiei.
Mr. Houston should have spoken
Ele.'tors of the West Ward will do  a
generous thing if they do not forget
the absent candidate today. Mr. Ferland has duties which bave called bint
elsewhere, and he was obliged to leave
hii candidalurs to the favor of the people. We hope and believe they will see
that his interests   do   not Buffer by his
Mr. McKillop and Dr. Arthur will
nut complain if the electors of West
Ward place Mr .Vrl.tiul ut the bead oi
the poll, Hut they themselves must
be good second-.. 1 r a good second anil
There should be hesitation about the
West Wind. The Miner would r.ot
barm a hair of the head of cither Mr.
Madden 01 Mr. Irvine, but. il will be
better to have in the Council, Dr, Ai-
thur. Mi. Ferland and   Mr.  McKillop.
Mr. Ferland may not be an absent
minded beggar, bnt he is an absent
candidate. See that he is not a sufferer by It,
Take your choice of these four for
the East Ward: Byers, Hull. Morrison, and Wilson. You cannot make a
mistake if you keep within this limit.

Tfte ilrnmn Why nu Indian I'm,, ���
No Longer V.-11 Tobacco.
Once upon a lime, whether near or reunite dooa nol matter, there lived a great
Indian potentate, to whom is due the
honor, though bo was unaware of it Liiiu-
Helf, of having been nn ancestor uf our
famous cricketer. This great lord's rule
spread far and wide, his blood was of the
bluest, Iii- caste was nf the highest. But
he was a man with a weakness, if weakness it can be called, lie was an Inordinate lover of tobacco���the pipe, so to
speak, was never out of his mouth.
One day this eastern votary of "My
Lady Nicotine'' was out hunting���like his
descendant, lie wns a great sportsman���
and by some chance became separated
from his followers. Alone in the depths
of a forest and tired with an arduous
chase, he sat down to wait until he wus
found. A meditative smoke wns just tho
tiling to while the time away. The king
felt the desire strung in him, but alas his
pipe bearer was among those front whom
lie had strayed. When an ordinal, man's
longing is balked, it usually becomes
keener and more intense. What, then, if
u great ruler's taste cannot be gratified,
and thul, too, his pet one'.' As time went
on his anguish became terrible. Indeed,
it bad come near an articulate cry of
"My kingdom for a pipe," when the
sound ut" approaching footsteps caught
his ear. Ho was nil attention in a moment. A peasant appeared and, recognizing his master, saluted him.
"l.nst thou a pipe and tobacco'/" demanded the king.
"I have, your highness," replied the
man woudcrlugly.
"Then give them to uio. I wish to
The peasant gazed for a moment in
wild astonishment, then, with a low
salaam, replied:
"Your highness must forgive me, but 1
"You cannot?   Why not?"
"Your highness well knows that whatever loaches his lips must never have
touched another's.1'
The king still insisted, but the ninn was
quietly utul respectfully firm.
"Your highness forgets lhe greatness of
his etiste and the meanness of mine."
At length tlie reaction came iu the
king's breast, lie saw how near he hud
been to losing the most precious possession of tlie Hindoo���his caste���for a mere
temporary gratification of little account.
And so violently did be resent his weakness that he resolved from that moment
never to smoke again. Not only did he
keep liis word, but he made an ordinance
prohibiting the use of tobacco iu his family forever. T > us westerns this seems
an extreme, even absurd, use of power.
Nevertheless "Hnnji" docs not smoke.���

Mr. Fletcher's Campaign Was
Most, Successful
Hone Doubt That Mr. Houston Will
Defoi.teil.--A Pew Reasons Why
He is Not Wanted.
Today is pulling day and the municipal contest is nearly ovei. The issue
of the contest no longer rests in doubt
and impartial observers aRrno that the
citizens will again, and more emphatically than last year, express their dis-
approval of the lloostnu form of
municipal Government, Mr. Fletcher
and his supporters liuvo worked hard
and conscientiously nnd the result of
their labors is that Mr. Fletcher's election is now conceded to bo certain.
TT10 campaign has boon conducted
fairly, and nothing was criticized thnt
was not fair matters for publio criticism. The only excoption to this was
yesterday's issue of Tbe Tribune.
That enlightened sheet, which hnd
wisely been keeping practically silent,
felt liouud to say something, It could
Hnd no arguments to adduce, so It proceeded to neensn Mr, Fletcher of intending to vote dead men ami absentees. These accusations were the
laughing stock of tbe town yesterday.
hot their source was considered and
no 0110 got very angty or took tlinin
seriously. There was general astonishment Unit any one should have thought
it worth wbilo to spring such a worn
out, low down electioneering dodge.
What steeius to be weighing greatly
with many electors is the recollection
that when he lost held office Mr. Houston nsed_to neglect his proper duties us
Mayor to go pottering ronnd trying to
do the work of thn City Engineer, tbe
street foreman nnd other official". He
always bad time to make a muddle of
some, one else's department, lint never
_nv to fulfil bis functions as repre
sentntive of tho City of Nelson. Did
any prominent person or Intending investor   come   to   town   there wes  no
ban if the Mayor meeting him.    If
the party iii question mannge.il lo Hnd
the Mayor, bo was usually received
with tho utmost rndoness, and there
were several cases when capital was
thus driven away, not to mention the
bad impression left of a town w 0
wonld elect, such a mnn.
Notwithstanding the counter-attraction at the Opera House, tbe rally nt
Candidate Fletcher's committee rooms
last night was very larRo nnd enthusiastic The opinion of those best quail-
tied to judge of tho result of the campaign could easily be read on theii
Pleasant [aces. They bad been among
the citizens and hnd talked witb them,
nnd found they had not forgotten.
Nelsou wants no mora of the man who
sold the City an ""electric light plant in
which ho was interested worth .7,600
for 186,000 nnd which has cost, first
mil last in the neighborhood of .75,���
nun, who bought tlie lumber for tbe
City from a mil! of which he -was In
possession as mortgagee nt a higher
figure than it could he obtained elsewhere, who left the City accounts in
such a muddle that thoy had to be
audited for a long timo back before- the
Oity'B financial status eonld be ascertained, and who at hits best was no
better than an Indifferent street foreman reoelvina tbe handsome remuneration of t_i 000 a year nnd opportunities.
The gnat majority of the citieziis
have expressed tbeh intention of voting for Mr   Fletcher and B coiitiiiiiunce
of clean, sound munlolpal Govern-
ment. The pulling booths will ba
open from h a, m. to -I p. m. and will
see few but Mr. matcher's supporters
during that time.
One of the stiiogs   Unit Ml.  Houston
persistently   harps   upon is that he   is
tbe workingmau's friend, There is no
person who derives such direct benefit
from the expenditure of money on
public works as does the workingman
yet Mr. Houston opposed the expenditure of a cent of money in the City
last year. Had he had his way the
..(15,0(0 expended in the City would not
have been voled.    He also   opposed the
Introduction of capital Into the City
fm- modem improvements, An instance of Ibis is the Gas r_ Coke
Works, which,    when   completed   will
represent  an expenditure of  ISOO.oOO,
2 As Mr. Houston inns it. it is rather a snap being Mayor. Ho has been
paid (8,500 hy the City for his services
in the Mayor's chair and The Tribune, bis paper, has heen subsidized to
a like amount to say nothing of the
fat cheque he made out of the electric
light plant. The latter wns a kind Of
a double barrelled action ns both the
plnnt and tho City  were sold.
As he is after the money it might be
a good idea for the Oily to pnv Mr.
Houston ii salary if he would withdraw.     II    would   prove   cheaper    for
tho ratepayers in tbo long run

interview with the Marquis of Snlis-
bury this afternoon and received n verbal  reply to   representations of  tlm
Washington Government, The British note on the subj90t wns sent later
tt thn United States embassy. Tbe
first of it was cabled to Washington,
In brief it said food stuffs are not con
sidcred contraband nf war unless in-
teuded for tbe enemy.
The Foreign Ollice only arrived nt a
decision today and it was not until after Mr  Ohoate'B interlvew  hnd   ended
that a note embodying  tbe provisions
wns drawn up. Several of tho Government's advisers wanted tn make a
regulation regarding canned goods,
but this was decided to be unpracti-
cable. The decision tn make tlnur aud
grain, in transit to the enemy, contraband, is evidently hedged in many
difficulties of execution. But the Foreign Office believes that investigntioii
will generally determine whether the
groin is really meant for consumption
at Lorenzo Marque/, or iu the Transvaal. Mr. (Tioate cabled Lord Salisbury's note tn the State Department at
Washington tonight und Colonel Hay
is expected to reply accepting the
terms. The latter step was not taken
by Mr, Cboate as ho hnd first to receive authority from the State Department tn do so.

The finanoial statement of tho City

credit to Nelson  and   (he   Mayor  nnd
Counoil that ruled tho destines of the
City for tlie pest twelve months. It is
in striking contrast to thn bunnlintj
statement   (?)   made by Mr. Houston
when he vacated   olllco a year iibko.
That Mr. Houston realiMI that his
liKht ir hopeless was evident from lhe
tenor of The 'ITibnne of yesterday.
The bitter remarks were such that
ci,tno only from u badly beaten man.
The assertion that tho Fletcher committee had decided to vote nil sorts  of

It is   rather   a lntdonoholy  thought
that Houston, Oreenway   and   Serolin
London, Jan. II.���The Tines, iu a
special article, dealing with the Hclii-
Roa Bay question, expresses tlie opinion that the endeavor ot the Boers to
over run Natal lends eoulirniulion to
MsortiotiB made before the war by
prominent Boers that they would seize
Durban as a port. The article pin-
cecds to point out that by the tliiiiu���li
rate system, OBpucinlly favorably to
the Transvaal shipments over the Del
iinoa Transvaal Bailway, (Tcin.sn ship
owners have been able to secure traffic
with litllo risk of examination at continental ports or at Delagoa Bay.
The writer ROea on to say: "II Is
not known that in anticipation of future military developments ill the
Transvaal toward the Zonptuthsrg .tin-
trici a considerable amount of stores
and munitions of win have ticn forwarded for sonic time past, ohiefly
from the {continent, it is [understood
that the Union Steamship Company,
besides ceasing! to have Hen I'olt, tbe
Ttans-tuil   CousuM'oncr.l at   Lomiwi
Marques, as  their  .mint,   hns  with
drawn their steamer from tho Delagoa
Hav   route.    The Castle  Company has
done the same and made arrangements
that will prevent any use at DelsgOl
Hay of their vessels for unti-l'ritish
purposes, Measures in the same direction have been taken with regard to
the Empress Landing Company, The
withdrawal of  tbe steamers of two
British innil companies may, however,
increase Oretit   Britain's  difficulties
by throwing the carry ing trade still
.note into the hands of continental
shippers    and   diverting   business   to
America   for    handling by   lorelgn
steamers from American ports."
The article concludes by mum mn
im- the Government to endeavor to so-
core a more ntrict examination.

finally weeded out and an excellent
class secured. It wns u most amusing entiitainuii'tit and the audience
was in  roars of laughter most of the
time. Many opinions were expressed
as to tlie genuineness of the ex.-Mi-
