Interesting Letter from
Formerly  a  Major   in   the
Kaiser's Army���Is Now
With tho Boers.
From an exchange The Miner takes
the following interesting letter Wtiten
by a German officer who was lately a
Major of tho -2nd Infantry of the
Kaiser's Army, aud is uow a Colonel
on tho general staff of the Boors who
nre beleaguering Ladysmith, "As
yon very well know (he says), in
muuy mat'.ers the Knglish nre a practical peoplc.aud in those matters which
concern them privately they exhibit a
shrowCnoss and an energy which is re-
innrkulilo nnd woithy of high praise.
it is tho more remarkable that in
matters "-ith regard to tbe praotico
of war these good qualities desert
them, I have now been for teu W3eks
employed in the operations against
the Knglish generals, Syinous, White
and Buller���and so unsystematic, nre
the proceedings���so unpractical, so
illogical, and in consequence so nnpro-
lific, of these generals, n�� equally ure
those of the Baron Methnen���that I
cannot refrain from regarding them
with senseless wonder. In this extraordinary war ihe enemy's generals
bave behaved iu 11 uiannor which must
seem incredible to those who hnve not
been here to seo for  themselves.
"But let inn leave generalities, nud
come to faots. When tho (.ioverninent
nt Pretoria had sure information from
Dr. Leyds that Lord Salisbury and
Mr. Chamberlain burl mnde their plans
for sending to Natal a reinforcement
of some infantry battalions, Colonel
Kohner, lnte of tho 14th Field Anil
lory, nnd myself went down to the
Knglish colony, nAd reninined there
until a week after tbe issue of the ultimatum by President Kruger. Thus
we were able to bring back a useful
report npon almost every point affecting tbe resources, organization, and
morale of onr future opponents. Al-
though we   lived   nearly three mouths
11 liidysniith, Piotorinnritzhnrg and
Durban, we, strange as it does now
seem, were never recognized or tbe
leiist suspicion raised as to the real nn-
ture oi our business. 1 should like to
hear what some of our good comrades
Bt Kiel, Striishnrg, or other of onr
frontier fortified towns would think of
the chances of a couple of French officers taking dp their residence for some
months in a German military centre
when war was impending with France
ud remaining undiscovered.    Apropos
of Frenoh   "Ulcers,   Major  C , formerly of the French   Foreign   Legion, 1
was sent   upon   a   similar   mission to
Oape Town.    Being   au   Irishman   he
soaped attracting the slightest inconvenient notice. Truly the English ore
the most unsuspicious of peoples muter
the sun.
"Wo are a cosmopolitan band of good
lirothers-in-arms here around Ladysmith. There is lirst iu rank General
Count Georges Yillebois de Moureull,
who was lately colonel commanding
ihe lirst  regiment   of the  far-famed
Foreign Legion of the French African army. This distinguished nllicer
Hiienks our own language very well, as
ulso he does English. He treats US
Germans ��vilh marked courtesy, as,
indeed, does all of his confreres, numbering .11. Some of these aro territorial

ton will have an opportunity of reading tniluy's proceedings iii the House
of Oniniuni]8 he will have wished that
be bad been saved from bis friends.
In reply to Colonel Prior, Sir Wilfrid
Luurier said that no order-in-connoil
hnd been passed dismissing Hut ton or
calling npon him to resign bis position
and therefore his excellency was not
askeo to sign any snch order. A com-
rnunicntion was sent to the colonial
authorities lint he was not in position
to disclose its contents to the House.
Colonel Prior put tho fallowing
question, "Hns the attention of the
government been called to the following words used by Major-General Hut-
ton in a speech delivered by him at a
far well dinner tendered to him on the
I4th instance bj the ollicers of the Ottawa brigade, ���[ have used my utmost
endeavors to ctnnto n national militia
army worthy of the responsibilities
which nre peculiarly its own and
which, to ensure success, must lie
placed upon a plane above all possibility of party political intefrerence us
regards its personal and its military
machinery. 1 should, however, feel
more hopeful of the future of Canada
if the government had even shown an
active interest ill our recent efforts for
a higher eilicieucy or indicated their
approval of principles upon which
our oforts are based. 1 would ask
you, However, in all seriousness, not
ti suppose that tbe severance of my
ties with you nre due tn petty niisnn-
dcrstiiiidiiips with the minister of militia npon minor issues of appointments
or disciplinary matters bnt that it is
one n broader, wider and vastly more
important issues.' It is true that the
government has not approved of the
policy of the major general command
ing. as set forth above. Can the Government inform this house what was
tho cause of the disagreement between
them and I he major general''*
Sir Wilfrid Laurier : "Yes. Tbe attention of the government has been
drawn to that portion of Major General Button's speech mentioned in the
question nnd to other portions officially
reprehensible. There have been differences of opinion between the government and General Huttou. The government wns disposed, now that he
has been recalled for service-in South
Africa, to let these differences of opinion pifss without uny comment The
Government had reason lo believe that
ibis was in ttocordanco with General
Button's views nnd therefore when the
subject wns brought up in the House 11
few days ago the Government refrain
cd from muking nny Statement. Tbere
ii now no reason to follow thut course
uny further. General Mutton in bis
speech bus insinuated that his differences with tbe Government nre due
10 a desire on the part of the latter to
exetoiae improper political inllueuce
on the militia ownuization of the
country, I desire on the part of the
government, lo sny Ifnt there is nhso-
lutely 110 foundation for such 11 statement. The onuses of differences bo-
twecn tho government and (ienernl
Button were not over nny broad questions of geiiornl policy. The onuses of
differences were that General Huttou
WAB insubordinate Oild indiscreet nnd
deliberately ignored   tho   authority of
the minister iii the administration of
the department. Tho Government desires to suite that while they will, at
nil times be prepared to give the most
careful consideration to any represent"
nlive which must be mad" by tho officer commanding the militia it must bo
distinctly understood thut uny such
officer, on accepting the position iu
question, becomes from that time un
olllecr in the employment of, und subject in nil respects to  the   government
of Canada, and that he is to be regarded as the advisor hut not as entitled to
control   the    department   of   militia.

Has Declared a Quarantine Feelings   of   an   American
Against the City of After Paying a Visit to
All Passengers on Boats are
Examined Before
Kaslo, Feb. III.���This town has declared a quarantine against Nelson.
Since the report reached here of the
presence of smallpox in the city ot
Nelson the people have been suspicious
of every arrival from that city. Everyone stepping from the boat lias been
carefully watched, as ilmugh Iho
germs of the disease might he seen upon his clothing aud has afterwards
been examined, Those people of Kus-
lo who have visited Nelson since the
smallpox patient wns di.-, overed there
are inclined to criticise Ihis action of
the health authorities. They do nut
believe there is the slightest danger of
the disease being carried to this paint.
For the henelit of tlie people of Kaslo
and other points tributary to Nelson
Tho Miner desiies to tell of the situation here, There is one easfl ui small
pox in this city. The sufferer is a man
named Clayton, a waiter on the steamer Moyie. He is now in an isolation
hospital iu this oity,Using eared for by
a nurse aud a doctor. Those who were
with him nn the stenuier .Moyie are
still there and will remain there dnr-
ijg the period of incubation. The
most careful precautions hnve been
taken. There 18 not the slightest danger of the disease spreading in ibis
city, aud there is still less danger of it
being curried from Nelsou to any
Other city. The case in question did
not dunplop in the city of Nelsou.
The Board of Health met lust night
with Mayor Boutson 111 the chair.
The smallpox situation wus discussed
and it was decided thut Mayor Boos-
ton should telegraph to Victoiia for
permission to publish the smallpox
regulations in the daily papers of Nelson. In order to enforce the regulations it is necessary that they be published in tho British Columbia Gazette and also in the Provincial papers.
As they have already been published
in the Gazette it is only necessary to
publish them iu the local papers in order to enforce the regulations in this
city. The Board also appointed a committee, with power to act, to engage
twn medical examiners to inspect the
passengers on all trains and boats coming into the City, with the exception
of th-- Nelsnir an.: Fort Sheppnrd Kail
wny. The pnssseugers on this road nre
���ill inspected ut the Boundary. The
above committee consists of Ilrs. Hall

Buffalo, Feb. III. ��� President John G.
Milhnrn, of the Pan-American Exposition, aud generally acknowledged as
leader Ol the bur of this city, hns returned after a live week's nbsenoe
abroad. He spent three weeks of this
time in England, having been sum-
moned there by illness of Mrs. Mil-
burn, who is srienriing tho winter near
their two sous at Oxford. In speaking
of the attitude of tbe English people
in the piesent war, Mr. Milhurn says:
"1 do not know tbal 1 ever felt such
respeel for people as was caused by
the way in which the whole matter
was taken hy the piople there, there
being no attempt to btliltlo the reverses in South Africa. All yon could
see nn every side was a oniet. grim determination that the matter should lm
carried through to a successful issue.
Ovor nnd over again I heard said by
nun tlmt, hnmwing as the experience
was, they believed the results nnarf
li'oiu South Allien, would bo of tho
greatest listing honclit. One reason
named was the drawing together of
tho mother country and the colonies
and the consciousness growing out of
it an imperial unity. There was little
doubt with military authorities thut
is was going to be a fairly easy matter, and lhe feeling that, hud grown
nu wus, thnt it was a great event that
the men from tho British army and
men from Canada, New Zealand ami
Australia wore all comprised iu tbn
same army uml lighting side by side.
"Whut was impressive was tbo utter
absence of any ntlempt to minimize or
explain away what bad happened.
Fiom my observation there is simply
un unlimited supply of men who
have serve! in the volunteers and wbo
are anxious to go, and il-ero is not
the least doubt that if the war takes
-.'.JU.OOO more men, they can be had
and that it will be cat lied through to
a lin ish."

If Mr. Charles Hillyer,who is a most
pleasant and good-natured person,
will permit ns to have a word or two
with hini, we shall he glad I" Inform
him that he made a mistake in allowing Mr. Houston to persuade him tu
write that letter lo sir. Houston's paper. In it he says Mr. Houston can
take cam of himself, That may he, hnt
if he thought so he should have left
him to do it. If in our remarks ou
those whji'f tenders Mr. Hillyer discovered any personal cause of complaint, he would have done heller if
he had confined himself to that one
point and made his vindication
through Tbe Miner. It may not seem
entirely natural to one of his comprehension, nnd especially to one of his
long association ; hut we hen to assure
him Ihat newspapers that aie eon-
ducted mi principles of honest and
honorable Joornalism, as The Miner
is, are always prepared to afford whatever redress is proper or necessary for
any injustice they may have committed.
After u careful perusal of Mr. Bill*
yci's letter, however, we fail to discover the semblance or suspicion of au
injustice in his case. Hut in every
sentence -6 detect a desire to shield
Mr. Houston.     It was written for that
purpose. As Mayor, that gentleman
has taken an utterly indefensible attitude in regard to thosa wharf tenders,
and Ihe good-natured Mr. Hillyer,wiih
his sawmill, allows himself tD be used
as a buffer between him and public
opinion. That is the consequence of
bis mistake in being influenced by
Mr. Houston to havo it written, and
in getting some of Mr. Houston's
people to write it. Hereafter, when
be has anything to say to the public
that is worth saying and that tho public may desiro to hear, .e would advise bim to put himself into thu hands
of some disinterested person, who will
reflect his own views and feelings
Tho information concerning Mr.
Hillyer's payroll I'm tho past eight or
nine months is doubtless interesting to
many, but it bus nothing to do with
the Mayor and those wharf tender-.
The town strouuly suspects Ihat if the
Saywaid concern had not heen tho

in rich emblematic bronze sockets
would represent Canada, Australia,
New Zealand and South Africa, and
upon them the standard ol the various
colonies would be hoisted on all na-
lional occasions. The Spectator makes
this significant comment : "The Colonies are not dependencies, bill pans
of a whole, of which we also nre only
the parts major. But the idea of living Hags of four free nations is cei-
tainly excellent.''

years' experience as a specialist, and how I found over a quarter of a century
ago that we should look to that great natural force, ELECTRICITY, for
strength where strength was required, and shows why
Medicines Gan Never Gure.
11 tells of my wonderful invention, the Dr. Sanden Electric belt, now
known and used the world over. This appliance combines the best elements
of every electrical apparatus known to science, and cures speedily and forever
all results of youthful errors or later indiscretions, Physical Weakness, Nervousness, Lame Back, Varicocele, ete. We give in " Health World," sent
with book, over four hundred testimonials, with names and addresses, new
every month. Don't fail to write for this book today, or, if you live near
enough, drop in and consult me free of charge. My office hours are 9 a.m.
