March 82.���(4:13 a. in.)���
Severnl telegrams have passed between
President Krnger and tlm British Government iu addition to the Sulisbury-
Krnger correspondence already publish-
ml. The Foreign Ulilee receive,! a dis-
imlcli from Pretoria yesterday. Tbo
oonteuts of these communications cannot yet be obtained. So far ns tho
military situation is concerned there is
liriiclieally nn change. Lmd Roberts
Is quietly making preparations for the
next move. As necessary to beginning, Generals Gntacre and Brabant
are swiftly moving from a point in tho
Bontnern dlstriots of tbe Free State,
dispersing or accenting the snirender
of any remaining Boers thus insuring
lbs Bafety ot Lnrd Roberts' oouimnui-
ratinns before starting towards Pretoria. A corraspondent of The Daily
News ut Springfontoin, describing the
movements, says: "General Qataore
is sweeping through the country like
< n oyolnns with ilying columns iu all
dlrootinus, His swiftness and strategy have proved of inestimable value
tn Lord Roberts. Rebuilding of the
railway bridge at Nerval's Pont will
oconpy two months. Tbe temporary
bridge will bo oompleted in about ten
days. Meanwhile suppheH are trons-
piirtcil by an aerial tramway across
the gap. Those works nccessalrly delay the providing of snpulicH for the
advance. Lnrd Metlmen's movements
north of Kiniberley are believed to bo a
prelude to the gathering of a column
ef 30,000 men, with Kiiiilurley as a
base, to strike ctistwu'd from Fourteen Streams,Into the TrniiKtival.'' The
long ami anxiously awaited newfl ol
the relief of Maleking baa not yet
been received. Mr. Sobrlener, the
Cape Ptomler, lias granted the request
of the mavoi of Cape Town that u
imlilio holiday be proclaimed throughout tho colony ou tho relief of Mate-
king.
London, March 21,���The Capetown
correspondent of Tbe Daily Mail, telegraphing Tuesday, March !)0, Hays:
" 1 have just arrived Irom Rloonil'on
toin wliire I learned that no furlhei
movement is probable for three weeks,
as negotiations are proceeding, 1 fail
to ascertain the nature of the negotiations or whether Sir A If rod Milner's
departure fioni Cape Town ia connected with them. I should not bo surprised if the war collapsed."
London, March I.���The Capo Town
correspondent of The Morning Post
anya: "On the best authority I learn
that the real objective of the Fisher.
Wilmarnus flepntaibu is Russia. 1
also hear that thsy havo taken away
all the secret incriminating documents
from Pretoria, thus making it difficult,
to implicate Steyn and tho  BouditeB."
London, March 22 ���Mr. Winston
Churchill, in a dispatch from Pinter-
niaril7,hurg, suys: "I think it may
he counted a certainty   thn  Transvaal
would Immediately comply  if Orenl

treatment for all prisoners by a threat
of reprisals ou Transvaal prisoners,"

Loudon, March 28.���The oorrospnud-
out of The Time! at Lorenzo Marque/.,
telegraphing Tuesday, says: "It is
reported from Pretoria that u scheme
has been arranged tor the amalgamation of the Transvaal nud the Free
State. Krnger will become President
nf the federated states, u'ul Steyn'
comninndaht-general of the Peer nrmy.
The thit; will he the same ns that of
the Transvaal with an additional
Orange color. Although tbis story is
not confirmed, it is not improbable.
It is a notorious fact thai General Jou-
bsrt lilts It st the confidence of the
Burghers, simply because In the lirst
place he rerused to shut his eyes to the
inevitable resnlt of the war. With
all.tho Burghers in the field it ;might
not be tlilliciilt to secure a formal endowment of this rumored scheme.
London, March 81.���The only news
from South Afrioa showing activity
OU either side conies from Warrentown,
north ot Kimberlej. Desultory lighting oecuned all day Sunday, resulting
in the retreat of the Boeis towaids
Chirstiitmi under shell fire. The progress nf this column towards Mafeking
bus either almost entirely neased or  is
forbidden   to   be  mentioned  In  dis
Hatches. Nothing new comes from Colonel Plumcr aud Mafeking apparently
siill awaits relief. The Pretoria uo-
opnut of tbo skirmish at Fourteen
Streams, March 10, says that a Poer
command wus preparing to destroy a
railroad bridge and that the engagement lasted half nn hour with tbe result that one Bnigher whb slightly
wounded, Tho same dispatch announces the arrival at tbe Transvaal
capital of General Scbalberger from
Natal. Tho Beoond editiou of The
Times todav publishes a dispatch from
Bloemfontein, dated Monday, March
10, which says: "Tbo blowing up ot
bridges hj tha Boers ia an evident
sign that the Transvanlers intend to
abandon the defence of the Free
State." All IS quiet in tho south and
west. A corps of youug Poors from
the farms surrounding Bioemtouteiii
under nn Imperial ofiicer, has been
detailed for police duty and to rrevent
furtbor looting of abandoned farms
by the Kaffirs, It is said that when
President Kruger left Bloemfontein,
after bis recent visit there, President
riteyn's parting remark was, "Mind
the British do not oateh you, or you
will get better quarters at St. Helena
tltau I." Hudyard Kipliug has gone
to Bloemfontein, The Boers at Aliwal
North are reported to be still holdiug
a position iu tbe Big Hills on the l'ree
State side.
From a Pretoria dispatch it appears
some misunderstanding regarding
Lord Salisbury's reply to Amoricn'B
offer of mediation exists there. It
had neen quoted to tho effect that Lord
Salisbury said bo could nccopt the
Intervention of no other power, which
leads to the belief that the American
representations would be listened to in
the final settlement.

Victoria, B.C., March 21.--The first
candidate to nnnouiice himself in the
Martin interests is Mr. Donaltl Piasor,
of this city. He subscribes to tho platform of the Premier, and in Ihe event
of au election will seek the stilTrugoB
of the electors of Esquimult m Mr.
Mnrtiu's iutorosts.
The Governor has published a letter
in answer to the business men's deputation. It is considered a very weak
document and is severely critlzed on
all s ties. The Times, svhieh is somewhat, inclined to lean towards Martin-
ism, ad ministers to tho Governor n
sharp rebuke for his inaction. It says:
"Tbe contention ot His Honor that
time should bo given tho electorate
to consider the reined ios proposed to
bo applied to end the past unsatisfactory btate of affairs, we hope does
not contemplate the possibilityol n Ministry, the majority of wluoh have
never represented any part of tho people of British Columbia In the Legis-
lature, administering our public attain
for nn extended length of timo with-
opt au appeal to the people.
"The intimation from the Prime Miu-
ister and Minister of Justice of Canada
that uu election should he held immediately, while probably uot adding to
His Honor's knowlcdgo on the subject, should certainly be of assistance
to him if he bad any doubts as to the
wisdom of allowing the expenditure of
mole mouev by speoial warrant than
the cxitencies of the case required.
We believo the Lionteuant-Govornor
will see to it that au election '��� k��M

"Tito Governor of Booth Australia

telegram to the effeoc that the British

Tbe Times, commenting upon the Melbourne dispatch, says: "This import
nut and wiso decision to give

otter colonies whioh have so nobly

It cannot be doubted that the Government action will bo highly appreciated. It is a graceful recognition of
splendid services freely dnno to tho
common cause under the common flag.
The offer of commissions is only u
step and not a very great one to eon-
Summation which all loyal British

About 1 o'clock yesterday morning
a fire broke out iu the deserted Windsor Hotel iu Kuskanook, uud gained
BUoh headway that, in about two hours
thu town wus almost wiped out.
Three buildings only were left standing. Yesterday morning when day
broke the townsite presented n desolate appearance for ouly smoking ruins
marked the place where only a few
hours before had stood homes and
prosperous stores. Homeless men nnd
women wero huddled together iu tho
three bouses that escaped the flames,
many of them but half clad and some
clothed only in their night clothes. Of
food there was but a seamy supply, for
nothing was saved from tho fire except n small part of the stock of H. H.
Maodonald'8 grocery store. So BUtl-
denly did tiie conflagration envelop the
town that tbere was no time to think
of anything but personal safety aud
that of thoso whose lives were dearer
tluiii earthly goods. So little was saved that almost all of the residents are
left destitute, a condition of affairs
that cannot fail to appeal to the residents of nearby towns who will be
asked to contribute to thoir relief.
Most of the women aud children are
in a pitiable condition as thoy were
unable to save even enough clothes to
keep them warm. Elsewhere in Tbo
Miner au appeal is made to the residents nf Nelson to contribute such
articles of clothing ns can be spared
for the purpose of clothing those who
have in a few hours lost their all.
Tho.things mostly needed ure women's
and'obibticn's clothing unit shoes und
food stuffs. Such contributions will
be received all Oay at The Miner ollice
and will be sent to the Sufferers by
the Bteamer Moyie tonight.
Tbo Windsor Hotel in which tho
fire sinrtcd has been vacant for two
years and stood iu the centre of a row
of business houses on the main street.
The fire, which wns snppused to be of
inceuninry origin, spread rapidly to
tho adjoining buildings aud aided by a
light wind from the south made its
wuy rapidly o/or the town. Hail
there beeu a strong wind tburo woultl
probably have been a heavy loss of life.
The blase was first discovered by Mr.
F. Frazer, who gave the alarm, Mr.
Frazer'B store was a complete loss ns
weie those of II. R. Macdonald and H.
Hoyt. The building occumeil by Mr.
O. Wi ight as a store anil post office
was burned so quickly thut its contents weie destroyed. The post ollice
safe was recovered after the tire with
its contents intact. Mr. Wright had a
sum of money in u trunk upstairs.
There was another trunk in
the same room, aud when Mr.
Wiight ran upstairs with tho intention of saving bis money,in his excitement he got bold ol tbe wrong trunk
and threw it out of tbo window,
mil left the one containing the money
iu the honse, There were four suloous
in the town doing business which
were consumed with the contents.
Tbe ollice ol the Mining Recorder was
among the buildings destroyed, bnt.
the records were suved. Tbo three
buildings that escaped were the office
of the Kootenay Valley Railway Company, the Union Hotel and a vacant
house. It was in theso buildings that
the homeless people look refuge.
Most of tbe business men had nil
they owned invested in their business
nnd us there was no insurance in the
town, owing to a luck of lire protection, they havo lost everything. Tho
heaviest losers are probubly Messrs. F.
Frazer and O.  Wiight.
When thn Steamer Moyie camo np
last night she stopped lit Kuskunook
and gave all the food supplies shu

NKLSON MlNKK I'UINTINO & PlIBLISHIHO CO
II   J    BEATON. Kditor and Manager.
HELP   WANTED.
We arc informed that tbo fire which
wiped out Kuskanook yesterday has
left many of the residents absolutely
destitute. Both food aud clothing
are smely nceidod. Tho charitable of
Nelson are appealed tj in their behalf.
Contributions towards the relief of
this afllictett community will be re-
coived nt The Miner ollice, and forwarded tonight by steamer Moyie.
Perhaps the greatest necessities are
boots, shoes and clothing generally for
the women and children, and food for
all.    Let thero be a generous response.
RUNNING   AMUCK.
In its own interest, and in tho interest of tho party it professes to serve,
The Vancouver World was ill-advised
when it consented to pull chestnuts
out of tho fire for Mr. Joseph Martin.
It ia behind the Executive of the
Vancouver Liberal Association in
tbeir call for a Provincial convention, to be held in that city on Thursday tho 5th proximo. No doubt there
will be n lutgu attendance. Thore is
probably not a constituency in the
Province that does not coutnin some
Liberals who are willing to support
Mr. Martin. In all parties tbere nre
mon who will support any leaders that
happen for the moment to be uppermost. In all of British Columbia
thero is no Conservative ��o disreputable er so incompetent, who would not
bo abb to collect a following if he
were made Premier. Aud the same of
Liberals. We do not know of a single
Liberal of nny prominence in Nelson
who would raise his voice for Mr.
Martin today, yet we shall not be surprised if tho party hero have a full delegation of enthusiastic politicians who
will piofess to represent it at Mr.
Martin's convention iu Vancouver.
So far as numbers go the convention
will no doubt be a success. The fact
that Mr. Martin has captured The
World is evidence that others are prepared to be caught. But that the convention will ho representative of the
intelligence and respectability of the
party wo refuse to believe; only the
event itself would.convince us of thut,
nud it iB an evont we as little expect
to witness ns to see two moons in the
sky. Mr. Martin does uot care what
may hapueu to the party, but it is to
his interest to get himself surrounded
with as ninny of its members as possible. Those who attend will declare
for him as Premier nnd leader; it is
fnr that purpose tbe convention is being held. And a declaration of the
kind will rend the party asunder, for
the bettor element of it will never
oonsent to follow Mr. Martin. What
thoy will do at once will be to voto for
Conservative candidates when opposed
by Martin candidates; what they may
elo ultimately time only will tell But
it can bo reckoned with certainty that
the immediuto effect of the Vancouver
convention, to bo held ou the oth of
next month, will be to drive tho bost
of tho Liberals of tho Province into
tho camps of Mr. Martin's enemies.
The World is helping to do this.
When it throw in its lot witb Mr. Martin it no doubt prepared i'self to go
nny length iu its support of bim, and
that it 'an go us fnr us to bleak up its
own party is not surprising. But in
turning over it has forfeited whatever
reimi.nn of pulihe respect was left tn
it. Hereafter, it is safe to say, it will
hiiva no influence among those members of its party whose good opinion
will count for anything. It looks like
ii case of Suicide, and in effect it is,
but there is an explanation to it.
Mr. Mnrtin is enraged ngaiust the Ottawa Liberals, aud is only uwnitiug
tho opportunity to put his knife iuto
them. The World itself hus been laboring for several years past uu.lur a sense
of wrong suffered ut Ottawa. Its disappointment has been growing more
bitter with the yenrs, and now it is
ready to join with Mr. Martin in demoralising the party iu this Province.
The work of demoralisation could not
bo more effectively accomplished than
through this Martin convention at Vancouver.
plies, which will be required immediately after tho close of tho fiscal year.
Through bis organ Mr. Martin desires
it to bo understood thnt it is ho, nnd
not tbe Lieutenant-Governor, who directs affairs in this Piovince, even in
matters that aro subject to tho prerogative of the Lieutenant-Governor. He
has His Honor under his thumb, nud
he would nut bo Mr. Martin if he did
uot exerciso his power to tho extreme
limit.      	
We have surely had examples ouough
of the mischief done by personal Government. Thero has beeu a session of
thu Legislature, but nothing wns
doue. There was not a siugle measure
submitted for His Honor's asftout
when the Housp was prorouged. Not a
dollar of supply was votod, aud it
looks now as if uouo can be voted before August or September. As The
Golden Era observes, this is bad for
the roads and trails that aro urgently
needed, for tho money will bo voted so
late in the season that winter will be
on before anything oan be done But
what of that? Politics in British
Columbia consist of ?qnnbbles for individual supremacy ; the iuterests of
the publio are a very secondary consideration, indoed.
The Greenwood Daily Times, a Liberal paper, referring to Mr. Martin's
platform, says: "He wants to revolutionise things where tho publio interest demands that matters be loft
alone. This Province is by no menus
on a permanent basis. Its chief industry is mining. Capital was being
turnod in this direction, miues were
being developed, properties were being
bonded, when lne'v and ill-advised
legislation and unsettled political conditions prejudiced capita! aud left business ut a standstill. Tho situation
will be aggravated if Joe Mu.'tin is
allowed to continue in power." These
are sentences which every roUecting
man in the country will endorse.

Continued from Ftal Pago.
Prieska, through the country, to ro establish communications with Poplar
drove. Lord Hoberts' conlideuce in
tho nbilitv of tho trnuspott to meet nil
tho immediate needs ot the nimy, deliberately left the enemy at Abraham a
Kraal to do what they liked. This
result folly justified him. The enemy
to the sooth wero paralyissd by the
boldness and rapidity of the stroke
iiiiri General Clements nud Qataere were
enabled to cross the Orange River
without opposition."
Mastuto,    Basntoland,     Wednesday,
March 81.���Everybody in   Basntoland
rejoices in the restoration of telegraphic communication with Aliwal
North.    The    proclamation   of     Lord
Roberts is  apparently effeotive as the
Free Staters are surrendering to the
Basntoland officials. Tho occupation
of N'eehi! mill Hou.wille by the llritiHh
has produced au excellent impression
convincing the Basntos that the authority of the yueeu is paramount.
London, March ID.���A dispatch to
The Stuuilnrd from Bloemfontein dated Thursday, March al, says: "Four
thousand Transvaalcrs from Colesburg
trekked on Saturday and Sunday to the
northeast, going by way of the Hasu-
toland border. Thev will probably be
caught nt one ol the passes. A striking . feature of : the advance ou
bloemfontein wns the abandonment of
our communications at Poplnr Grove.'
PLAGUE SPREADING.

A CONCERT COMPANY.
Mr. H. M. Hanaford,business manager for Miss Louise M. Brehany, is
in town endeavoring to arrange for nn
appearance hire of the company of
whicli Miss Brehany is the prima
dentin. The company is composed of
Miss Brehany who is a mezzo-soprano
ot the highest ability; Miss Jessie
Moure*1, ulto soloist, who mnde a hit
last year with the Salisbury Orchestra;
Louis J. Mintz, a tenor, with a voice
of rare quality; Forest D. Carr, basso
coutante, whom Ednoard de Retzko
praises highly; and Miss oiga
Sohrooll, a yonthfol violinist, whose
reputation is already world wide. The
company is under tho musical direction of W. Guillanme Sauvlet, who
has for years been associated with the
greatest artists ol tbe world. Miss
Brehany alone would command attention as she stands iu tho foremost
rank; of America's coucert singers.
She sang the chief part in Sousa's
famous musical pageant "The Trooping of the Colors ' and won laurels all
over lh�� country.
Dr. Sanden's Electric Belt.
Everyone knows something about my great appliance, the Dr. Sanden Electric Belt, with attachment for
men. It has won friends in all parts of the world. I
invented it as a specific for those weaknesses of men
which result from youthful indiscretions or later excesses.
It is the proper application of the galvanic current. It
gives the right quantity for good and quick results.
It is Ihe
Weak Man's Hope
We all know that Electricity is strength or nerve
force, and where the system lacks this ! contract to supply it. From the Sanden Belt you get a long continued
flow of the galvanic current. That is what is necessary.
You wear it all night for from two to three months, and
take ordinary care of your general health. That is all you require. It is a pleasant, soothing current
through Kidneys, Liver, Stomach, Bladder and Prostate Gland. It cures without danger of relapse.
You
Use No Drugs.
The current may be made mild or strong by turning a little thumbsciew regulator, which
modifies the intensity to suit the de.'.ire of wearer.
Free Book.    Free Consultation.
Drop in today, if possible, and have a look at the Belt, test current and consult me free of
charge, or write for free book, "Three Classes of Men," which explains all, sent in plain, sealed
envelope,    I answer all letters personally,     Ollice hours y a. m. to 6 p. m.
