ONTHERUN
A Brilliant Final Performance
by the Nelson Amateurs.
When the curtain rang down on the
magnificent tableau which concluded
tbe final presentation of Pinafoio last
night the audience���and it was one
whicb completely filled the house���
gave expression of its appreciation of
the brilliant perfomauoe by long and
load cbeers. Piosiac band-olapping
was insufficient to convey all they felt,
lint the loudest cheers conld not do
oredit to the work of the amateurs
wbo so capably fillod their parts lust
week. It was an audience that went
there to enjoy itself and their enthusiasm seemed to sproad to the stngo for
the perfomanco was certainly very
much better than ou the two previous
occasions. It went nil' with a dash
aud was maintained throughout at a
high pitch that carried all before ir.
Encores were the order of the evening
and it is safe to Bay that amateur
npera was nevei so perfeotly presented
in tbe Province aa it was last night.
The Miner has already mei tiond
th prinoipals individually achieving
great suocesa on Thursday evening, hot
eaoh of tbem gained fresh laurels in
the final produotion. Thero was not a
hitch during the evoning and nil those
connected with it must be most heartily congratulated on the wouderful
suooeus aoheivetl.
Flowers in abundance were presented to Little Miss Quinlan after her
clever danoing of the hornpipe. Herr
Steiner wns presented with a laurel
wieath aa the cnrtaiu went dowu nnd
loud cheers gieeted the act. To him
only the warmest praise can be given,
as he certainly haa done splendid work
with prinoipals, chorns and orchestra.
Nelson's first attempt at amateur
opera haa been a success beyond the
expectations of tho most optimistic It
shows tbat tbe oity possesses rare telenet and should not let its light attempt to shine nnder a bnshol. In
Pinafore Nelaon hns something to be
deoidedly proud of, and it is hored by
all who have beard it that the whole
oompany will appear at Rossland this
week aud show that oity what Nelson
can do. At all events tbe opera shonld
be presented some place else if all
those taking part can spare time.
Aa a result of the three performances
$850 was taken in, which leaves a
handsome surplus, although the management spared no expense to make the
production the entire success It was.
All accounts against Pinafore should
be sent to Melville Pairy, the honorary seoretary. by Monday evening, as
the oommittee meets on Tuesday to
wind up tbe business.
NO CONNEUTION.

White, First Secretary of the American embassy at London, arrived thia
afternoon on the American Liner St.
Ijimii nnd deniod tbe report that he

rumored tbnt he bad been oalled to
Washington to inlorm tbe President of
the sentiment prevailing in England
regarding auy proposed mediation in
South Afrioa. Another report was that
he was ooming to urge bis own ap
poiotment to the post of Ambassador.
Mr. ChoBte, according to rumor, was

about tbe matter Mr. White denied the
truth of both suppositions. He said

Rossland, B. 0., April 28.���The regular shipments begun on Monday of

BRIEF LOCALS.
Fred Lynch, well known in Nelaon,
leaven on Monday for Westminster,
where be will reside in future. He
hns secured a position with the West-
onnster electrio light plant, and incidentally will become a member of tbe
Westminster lacrosse team. Mr.
Lynoh's departure from Nelson will
prove something of a loss to the local
laorosse team.
The r'sidenta of Portland, Spokane,
Rosland and the Boundary towns were
eiven an opportunity last night of
hearing the opera Pinafore aa presented at the Opera House. The Kootenay
Lnke Telephone Company had receivers at the footlights and the long die-
auce wires carried the music and
woida for hundreds of miles. All tbe
subscribers in Nelson oould also have
heard it and those wbo knew of it enjoyed tbe troat of having opera In
their homes.
John Drydeu bad a somewhat unfortunate experienoe at Nine Mile Point
yesterday. Aft t landing from a small
boat lie seized hold of a boulder to help
him up the bank. The boulder waa not
firmly planted and fell from Its plaoe
crashing down tbe hank and fairly
into the boat from whioh Dryden bad
just landed. Whnt was left of tbe
beat, after being dried, would make
very good kindling wood. The small
stock of goods in tbe boat, amounting
In value to abont $50, was also destroyed. Mr. Dryden bad a narrow escape
but came out unujured.
Dr. McLennan has a hoodoo. On
Friday he leaned heavily on tbe cigar
case in tho Hume Hotol, and, being a
heavy man,bis elbow went throngh tbe
glass. Lnter on ho was showing a
friend how it happened, and forgetting
himself leaned nn the other glue and
ngnin disaster followed, the glasa giving way beneath the weight. Yesterday morning the glasses were replaced
and during the afternoon Dr. McLennan called ou Mr. Seaney to settle for
tho damage dona In counting out
some money he again leaned on tbe
oase and again the glnss gave way.
Three show-oase glasaea in two days
was a little more than tbe doctor oonld
stand, and now he can't be ooazed
within six feet of the cigar counter.

London. April 39.���Tha total absence
of news from the seat of war in Sonth
Afrioa during the last 24 hours indicates that operations aro progressing
hiob it is deemed prudent to keep
aeoret.
So far aa the situation in the southeastern part of the Free State can be
worked from ont the latest despatches
tbe main body of tbe Boers, composed
of the forces recently holding Thaba
N'chu and Dewetsdorp, 1b retiring,
probably with a view to joining, in
the neighborhood ot Ladybraud, the
coin mandolin from the vicinity of
Wepener who made good tbeir retreat.
Tbe main body of the Boers is beiug
followed by Generals Hamilton,
French, Brabant and Hart, while Oeneral Rundle also ia on the spot. The
British have an overwhelming foroe
and ought to wipe tbe Boers from tbe
face of tbe earth if they succeed in
overtaking them aud bringing them to
bay. It may be assumed that the
Boera are to tbe east of a line drawn
from Thaba N'ohu to Wepeuer. Tbe
retreat it seems ia being carried out
without fighting, whioh indicates that
the Boera have a good start, and as tbe
despatches state that tbey are not hampered by much transport and leave uo
tracks behind tbem on the veldt, this
mititates against the probability of
their being oreitaken. While it is
possible that news of a battle may
oome, tbe chances seem ro be that the
retreating commandoes may get away
without beiug forced to turn aud fight.
It is within possibilities that Lord
Roberta may bave begun hia advanoe
north. Tbis may be the seorel that
tbe oenaor baa been so jealously guarding. Tbe oi'tcome of this interesting
situation oannot be long delayed. The
news from other points is unimportant
and uninteresting. Some fighting continues about Warrenton, apparently ineffectually, as no casualties have been
reported on eitber aide.
A speoial despatch from Beira, dated April 27, states tbat tbe despatch
of Oeneral Oarrington's division to
Rhodesia is progressing as rapidly as
oiroumstances will permit Seven
transports have already lauded troops
and stores.
Thaba Nortb, April 88.��� General
Roadie's division haa arrived hero.
The march from Dewetsdorp waa uneventful. General French aud General Hamilton are also tbere. The
BoerB are reported to be ten miles to
tbe eastward. The mounted foroe
oame ln contact with tbem and a
slight skirmish ensued. The result of
Ihe junotion of Generals French and
Rundle is tbe clearance of tbe oonntry
of Boers at tbis point.
(SPECIAL TO THE MINER.)
Winnipeg, April 28.���Three new
oases of smallpox have developed sinoe
last evening,briuging the total number
of patients to l-i. The aoojmmodation
at tbe Logan Avenin smallpox quarantine, wbicb hns hitherto beeu oramped,
is now ample. A large staff of men
have been engaged iu putting up
buildings, and there is now accommodation for 80 patieute. A "suspect"
tent has been provided where persons
suspcted of having the disease mny be
kept until it is certain they are not
affected. Of tbe cases now at the
quarantine at least four nre very serious, including tbe two nurses vho

F.W. Thompson, general manager of
the W. W. Ogilvie Milling Co., hns
authorized a subscription of one thousand dollars towards tbe relief fund for
tbe Ottawa and Hull sufferers.
There was uo express from tbe east
today, the through train from Montreal, owing to the Ottawa lire,having
been delayed by an obstructed traok.
wide of Leeuw Kop, They arrived
about 8:45 p. m. after marching 18
miles. Tbe last stretch of the maroh
was very trying, as from tbe moment
tbe regiment moved to support the naval gnus, it wuh going constantly,
pressing in pursuit. This was an exceedingly hard d��y and the men wero
fairly done out. Towards the end of
the day the right of the line passod
through a swamp and the men drntik
bad water. Tbe rations could not keep
up and the night was bitterly cold."
Vancuovor, B. C, April 28.���Respecting tbe Government seizure of
ties and logs on the Orow's Nest Pass
line on account ot the alleged mm-payment, of timber dues, it is ascertained
they bave been released, payment
having been made under protest. Tlio
O. P. R. is taking action or trying to
tnke action through the courts to recover the money paid.

Pretoria, April 28.���Tbe representative of Renter's Telegraph Company,
with the Federals at Brandfort, ia informed that tbe British at Jammers-
drift tried lo get ammunition through
Basntoland but tbat tbe Basutos stopped the wagons and informed General
Dewet that ��� strong contingent of Ba-

Native reports from Johannesburg
��ay tbe Government inspectors are con
vinoed tbat dynamite was the cause of
the recent explosion and tbat tbe dynamiters' trail has been traced to a va-
ennt house in tbe vicinity of the first

all trains through Delagoa Bay in order to prevent the escape of tbe suspect*.
Toronto, April 28,��� There was a dig-
agreeable sceue at the meeting of tbe
Toronto oity council over a vote for tbe
relief of Hull and Ottawa when it was
proposed to give $25,000. Aid. Crane,
who is wealthy, objected to tbe dead-
beata iu the council giving so generously of the people's money. Some one
else objected. Mayor Maodonald then
said: "Oh, never mind, these illiterate peoplo must bave their joke. Crane
bas gold, but it is all he bas." Orane
got very angry, was a 1 moat speechless
with rage and attuokei the mayor
savagly, but little of what he said
could be beard in tbe uproar, exoept
that be said that it was all very well
for the mayor to vote.the city's money
while he was getting his living out of
tbe oity and at tbe same time his aged
mother was living on the obarity of a
township.
It was now the mayor's turn to get
wrathy. He loudly oalled for a policeman to eject Orane.
In the din of battle some one put a
stop to the disgraceful scene by moved an adjournment, and Crane following the mayor out of the Counoil calling him an "old slug. " The council
bad previously carried a $20,000 vote.
Viotoria, B. O, April 38.���Senator
Templemau's paper, the Times, ia
veering around toward Martin and before long it will declare itself au out
and out anpporter of tbe Premier.
Subscriptions are pouring in for Ottawa fire suffererB and It ia sure that
Victoria will contribute a large aum.
It ia announced lhat Mclnnoa will
oppose Ralph Smith in Nanaimo, but
it is oonoeded that Smith will have a
walkover with all comers.
Ottawa, April 28.���Hamilton has a
letter in tin Globe, dated March 28,
telling of the battle of Poplar Grove,
in which Roberts outflanked tbu Boers,
defeating them witb loss. ^Higher np
tho Modder River, our brigade played
an important part and Buffered a few
oaaualties, the engagement being one
of minoeuvering backed by artillery
fire. The Canadians were used as a
reserve during the filing. They then
advanced along the north bank of the
rivei for eight miles to Poplar Grove
drift There they were sent forwurd
to oooupy Slaggakraal in advanoe of
tbe Britiah main position. There they
came in touch with the Cornwalls

Tcrouto, April 28.���Faith Fenton,
writing to the Globe from Dawson,
sayB:
"One of the reoent Alaska discoveries uot yot known to the gensral publio is that of gold and oopper locations
ou Butteriok Creek and one nr two
other small streams enteiing Boring
Straits, between Cape York and the
Prince of Wales Capo. Reports appear
to have been circulated by Ameriaan
const papers that Dawson is dead from
a commeroial point nnd is almost a deserted mining camp. Your correspondent desires to give these accounts nn
emphatic and unqualified denial.
Dawson is more soundly prosperous to
dav thnn nt any time since ils inception. It decreased very mnoh in population in tbe past year, but this was as
muoh due to Cape Nome as to tbe
wild rush into the Kloudike of 18117.
Cape Nome will undergo a similar experience during the ooming year."
Ottawa, Out., April 28.���Owing to
illness in tbe family of Joseph Cole,
who wns appointed a commissioner in
conneotion with tbe proposed issue of
scrip to tbe Northwest halfbreeds, he
bas been compelled to offer bis resignation. Narcisse Cote, of tbe Department of the Interior, has been appointed to take bis place.
James Craig, of Renfrew, has been
appointed a judge iu Yukon with a
salary of $4,000 per annum with living
expenses.

manager of the Eastern Division of
the C. P. R., received a uable from
Dr. Seward Webb, wbo subscribes $500
to the Ottawa rolief fund from Mrs.
Webb aud blmself. He also expresses
deep regret and sympathy for those
rendeied destitute by the fire.
Port Arthnr, April 28.���The police
have arrested two boys, under fifteen,
wbo started three dree yesterday. They
acknowledge their guilt and bave been
remauded for eight days. They are
named Wright and Merntt.
THE EVASIVE~TURK.
A Display of Force Will Be Necessary
to Collect U. S. Claims.
Constantinople, April 27.���Tho United States legation hns not yet reoeived
the Porte's answer to the note banded
to Tewflk Pasha, tho Turkish Foreign
Minister, by the American Charge
d'Alfairs regarding tbe indemnity
claims, snd tho impression ia gaining
ground tbat tbe reply will be in the
negative.
The geueral opinion is that wlthont
a display of foroe tbe Porte certainly
will not pay the olaima, booanse It
wishes to show tbe rest of the world
that it yields only to force. It is
thought bere that a simple rupture of
dlplomatio relations will render the
Porte easier to deal witb. A rupture
of formal relations, however, ia not
thought necessary, as the sending of
war ships to a Mediterranean port
would sulllce to obtain a settlement of
tbe matter iu less than 24 hour*. The
same proposition made to the United
States for a Bettlement of Ihe indemnity question by an order for a war
ship, in the prioe of which tbe indemnity ahould be included, waa formerly
made to France and Italy, bnt M. Con-
atana and Seuor Pansa rejected the
proposition.

London, April 28.���The past week
has witnessed an attempt to oelabiate
St. George's day with the same enthusiasm that marked St. Patrick's
annifersnry. One result v/aa that iobch
slightly i.i 'leased in price abd there
wus a sprinkling of flags, hut on tho
whole the etfortH to oelunrste England's patron stunt wns by no means
successful. Except by handling the
gold coinage of the reulm, few people
here have any knowledgeof St.George,
nnd in the popular mind be retains
only nninterestiug associations, in
wbich he is connected by conquest,
over the dragon, portrayed on the hov-
erelgns, and which fail to awaken eu-
thnaiasm iu England.
The American cnmplicaticua with
Turkey continue to be the sensation of
the day. The Outlook, after declaring
the Sultan and Isaac Gordon, the notorious money lender, who died leoont-
ly, were brothers in mntters of money,
says:
"Tho Sultau has uow fallen back ou
the desperate debtor's Inst devioe of
buying more, and has offered to placo
an order for wnr vessels witb an
American firm if only the American
government will accommodate bim a
while longer, but tbe American government will do nothing of tbe kind
nnd intimates that unless tbe dollars
are forthcoming, the matter will bo
put in the hands of the United States
army."
President McKinlny'a candidature
may not enjoy immense help from a
naval demonstrtaion in the European
waters, for the European powera, who
are fellow sufferers witb America in
Amenia, are in wholesome imitation
taking steps to presa their olaims and
under such pressure Turkey must give
way.
Russia is holding aloof, but menaced
by Japan sho is hardly likely to lend
Tuikey more than eoant  aid.
During the course of a long article,

NEWS FROM THE FRONT
Miner Correspondent Tells of the Battle of
Paardeberg in Which so Many Canadians were Killed and of the Individual
Experiences of the Nelson Men.
Near Paardeberg Drift, .March 2.���On
Saturday, February 17, we continued
marching ull night. We arrived at
Paardeberg Drift about 8:30 a. m.
tired and hungry and looking forward
to spending the day (Sunday, February
lHth) in a good and sound sleep.
Breakfast of a cup of coffee and bus-
cult was no sooner ready than orders
were given to be ready to start in half
an hour's time. The Boer's laurger
being within four miles of us on the
Modder river on which we were also
camped, many like myself who were
on guard or watering the mules and
horses, had no time to drink their coffee before the cook pots, etc., were
packed away in the wagons and perforce had to be contented with the
regulation hard tack biscuit. What
revived us more than anything was
a good big lot of rum served out to
each man. Again our brigade marched
off to the drift at the river and there a
sight met us. Owing to the recent
rains tbe river was rusbibg down at a
great pace carrying all before it; men
and horses were struggling in the
water trying to cross. On the opposite
bank a riderless horse or two let us see
that the fighting was hot far off only to
be confirmed by a dismounted soldier
who had battled through the water to
our Bide of the bank; tbe only survivor
of a party of six, who bad been cut off by
the Boers. Four more of his comrades
he said had also been washed away in
fording the river. On our left the Royal
Horse Artillery were making a rush for
It, their horses being well drilled never
swerved and struggled bravely through
with the gunB and limber. Not so
with our ammunition, carts and mules,
the water being too deep and strong
for the later, who were Swept off their
feet and washed down. Two long
ropes being received we Bwiun across to
the opposite bank und made tbem fast
and then the Gordons and Canadians
started to cross four at a time arm in
arm, No. 1 holding on to the rope.
One deep pool in the middle was the
worst place and a ludieious sight it was
to Bee a pair of bare legs kicking frantically In the air as some poor Highlander would be swept off lliu feet, the
upper part of the body weighed down
with ammunition, but held safe in tbe
strong grasp of bis neighbor wbo again
was holding on to the rope. It seemed
impossible to get our inarching guns
over, but the difficulty was solved by a
small pontoon being brought down and
by dismounting the maxim, taking the
ammunition boxes out of tbe limber
the pontoon carried tbem across towing
the empty limber behind. Taking a
mule apiece and a friendly grasp of the
rope they were safely got over though
not without a ducking to ourselves,
when the rope got slack in tbe middle.
The Oordons and Canadians ull got
across safely and marched on. No. 2
maxim section was left behind to operate on the other side if necessary.
Marching for about a mile we came
upon thu Canadians lying at full
length on the ground in skirmishing
order, the Gordons on their left and
variouB eon,panics of the Seuforths,
Cornwalls and Shropshire* on either
Hank ami tbe Lincolns also on the
right flank.
Driving up amongst our regiment I
found tbey buil already been under lire
and to take cover and not move was the
order.    I    found that I was with
the maxim, in, undesirable commodity
Immediately next the men I happened to halt amongst. j\s sitting on
the limber 1 made it fairly good target
for the enemy and bullets began to fall
pretty heavily around about. One poor
fellow in I company called out to me to
uiove on for goodness, sake and the next
minute a bullet ended his earthly career. Till then I hardly realized we
were really in a light. The enemy
were strongly entrenched on our right
front along the banks of the Modder
river. Tougasor Nullaho running at
right angles to the sleep luniks of thirl ver forming natural trenches from i
to aO feet deep and filled with Boers.
The heavy foliage and trees all along
the river afforded most excellent cover
to the enemy who were (here in great
force. Directly on our front at about
lliOO yards were some Kalllr huts and
low kopje ridges running down the
trenches on the river und along this position the enemy could plainly be seen
i a lining from Stone to stone or from one
ant hill to another. Up till now the
regiment was fairly under cover from
the enemy entrenchments and the lire
from the river, owing to a slight uprise ln the veldt, and were only exposed
to a front fire whicli was returned with
interest.    But the enemy though at a
distance of about 1600 yards had our
range down to a nicety, und one or two
casualties were occurring. Captain
Bell believing be might get the maxim on to a kopje behind tbe Kaffir huts
and once there get a strong position
to enable bim to play upon the enemy
In tbe trenches and in the river, gave
me orders to get tbere if I possibly
could, the remainder of the section to
follow individually at a distance from
the gun to escape the fire it was bound
to draw. Meanwhile the brigade was
slowly advancing in skirmishing order
and the rattle of the musketry becoming greater each minute. The guns of
the artillery away on our left front,
had taken up a position and commenced to throw their shells amongst
the river banks. It is not quite the
nicest job to sit on the limber of a maxim nnd to know that you arc the object
of the perfect hail of bullets that is
flying over your head and you have not
the satisfaction of letting your rifle off
at them, r felt if I would give anything
to let one of them have it with my rifle
before they hud me. As I had orders to
get to the kopje as best I could I affected a ruse to accomplish my object, by
suddenly falling (seemingly so) off
the limber, easing the mules up and
taking cover behind a large untheap.
To all appearances I had shuffled off this
mortal coil. Looking over my cover,
dodging from antheap to antheap, followed the remainder of the section
about 300 yards in the rear and enjoying a similar reception to what I experienced, as wc were now fully exposed to the fire from river front and
trenches. Waiting for the section to
come up I once more seized the reins,
jumping or the limber plying the
whip on my unicorn team for all I was
worth and getting a fairly good gallop
out of the mules made the shelter of the
kopjes and was soon rejoined by the re
mainder of section. Our next move was
to get on a small kopje ridge 200 yards
distant and once there wc would have
good cover aud ample scope to work
the maxim and at the same time get in
a good rifle fire from our section of 10.
Having gained the section of the kopje
our detachment was joined by two
companies of the Gordon nnd Shropshire Light Infantry. Advancing to
the brow of the kopje we were met by a
heavy fire from tbe enemy's trenches by
the river and also from the Kaffir huts
now on our right flank. Several men
fell and the order given to drop under
cover, but notwithstanding the enemy
kept picking men off as they lay. The
order was then given for the maxim,
Gordon and Shropa to advance to a
small kopje two hundred yards further
on and take up their position there
while a part of the Shropa advanced on
the Kalllr huts on our right. I verily
longed for ' 'the wings of a dove'' as we
doubled across tbe open space to the
other kopje, being met by a continous
shower of bullets playing sad havoc
amongst the men. The kopje once
reached we had excellent cover among
the large boulders and quickly had the
maxim unlimbered and in action nt 800
yards, firing into the trenches and river
bank. We had a splendid position
overlooking the trenches but the dense
brush on the river bank effectually
concealed the enemy's sharpshooters.
The slightest sight of our helmets above
the boulders from which we were firing
being Sufficient to draw a deadly fire;
the bullets striking the rocks on all
sides, fragments of the nickle casing
dropping amongst us all the time.
Meanwhile some of tbe Canadians had
advanced up to the firing line in com-
pnny with the Seuforths, Cornwalls
and Lincolns and a lively lire was being
exchanged on both sides. For five
hours we lay exchanging shots, the sun
pouring down unmercifully till a welcome relief came about 3 p.m. In the
shape of a heavy thunderstorm, the
rain drenching us to the skin. The
horse artillerys'guns which had been
silent for some time now renewed their
lire with increased vigor, the shrapnel
bursting over the trenches in great
shape. At the same time the Canadians,
Cornwalls, Seuforths and others could
be seen steadily advancing for the enemy's trenches, while the Shropshire!
executed a similar movement from our
position. All day long very few of the
enemy COttld be Seen owing to the excellent cover tbey had till nt r>p,m. the
charge was given and witb rousing,
cheers our men rushed for the trenches;
where heretofore one or two of the
enemy could be seen the trenches were
now literally alive with tbem, the
Boers  standing   up   in   black   masses

men. The Oharge wan over In a minute
or two, our nien having' lo drop to
'"ver under the deadly fire they hail
in lived. Judging from the dead and
dying around our kopje the losses
amongst the Canadian regiment must
indeed he large, and so it proved to be.
Eighteen killed and UU wounded (10
Blnee died.) These were the figures
next morning. The enemy kept Bnlp-
'��(? at our men till darkness set in
when one by one we regained onr sections and stumbled back into the darkness to the drift we had crossed that
morning. Prom out of the darkness
COttld be heard the cry of the wounded
lying on the field calling for water.
Men wandering around calling for
their regiments, but all making for
the drift and what a sight met our
J��ie there! Down the steep banks of
the river was a long procession of the
���lying and wounded, a scarcity of
Mietehersjnecssltatlug improvised lit-
ters of rifles and blankets, a poor sub-
���tltute for a badly wounded mnn. The
��"ly means of carrying the wounded
over was by a miserable little pontoon
that could only take two stretchers at a
"tne. Luckily the moon was out by
"out 11 p. m. which considerably
��lded the work of the Btretcher-bcarers
'""I willing helpers. Foremost amongst
the latter wiib Lieutenant Hodgins,
Who having heen In the thickest of the
"large, was now doing his utmost for
"IO welfare of the wounded in his
oompany, All night long did he super-
intend and aid In the help of the
the wounded.

were lying dead Highlanders, the
Seuforths having suffered severely.
The casualties all told were close to
thirteen hundred for Sunday, February, 18th.
Speaking to Lance Captain W. G.  .1
ing storm swept over, soaking ns all to
tbe skin. Abont 5 p. m. the Oolonol
of the Cornwalls gave tbe oommand fix

charge we got np, Canadians, Corn
wallB, Lincolns and Highlanders and
all   charged   together.   A perfect bail
Arriving in camp about
too tired and hungry to be of
experience and which I will now put
down; "Crossing the drift about 9 a.
in , (A Company) took up our position
in skirmishing order as reserve to firing line of Seaforths, Lincolns and
Cornwall regiments being fifty yards
behind the firing line. The firing line
occupied a position like a horseshoe,
facing the trenches and about five or
six hundred yards distant. About an
haur after taking pn.iiti.in the right
half of A Company (the British Columbia contingent) advanced to the firing
line mingling with the Highlanders
and other regiments. Captain Arnold
of A Company was lying half way
between the firing line and the left
half of A Company, looking through
his glasses and directing his men when
to fire. He was shot about 11 in the
morning and while being carried
back both the stretcher-bearers were
sii"!. one through the body and the
other through the hand. I did not
seem to consider anything, but lay
down as if firing at a target. On
one side of me was a color sergeant
of the Seaforths and on the other an
N. C. O. of the Lincoln. The
position I occupied having previously been occupied by a Seaforth
Highlander who was seriously
wounded and carried a few yards
away. I realized only too well that
we were really in It now in right
earnest and took good care to keep
down in cover, except In one or two
occasions when I knelt to obtain the
correct range, as I had been shooting
at eight hundred yards and made the
any further use in the field, I turned in ' remark   to   the   Sergeant   that    our
with Handy Lee. It was a bitterly

fu hail been and are now (March ilrd).
Monday, February loth, at daybreak
""ml the enemy's trenches deserted,
��tng retired back towards the

JMjfW which was three miles off.    In
unt   of the   trenches   several   dead
Dickson,   I asked him   to give me his J storm of ballets burnt upon un, tbe en
'emy'e trenobes simply blazed fire. I
charged alongside my color sergeant
friend, two men were shot to my
right, oue in front of me and one
alongside. Yon could have covered ns
all witb a tent. At abont ilO yards
from the trenobes we got tbe order tn
drop to oover. I got behind an ant
heap and some bushesand lay tbere
till dark, still witb tbe color sergeant.
The enemy continned to shoot as the
reserve oame np and continued snip,
log at ns till darkness pnt nn end tc it
all. Tbe slightest move drew tbe enemy's fire. At dark I beard some one
calling Canadians and found it was
my section sergeant a few yardB away
from mo.Htunibliiig among onr scattered forces we met over the rise on the
veldt, from tbere we numbed hack to
the drift."
Speaking to Lee on tbe subject of his
first experience nnder fire, and asking
bim how he felt, he answered:
" I did not feel anything." " Naturally not," I replied, "or yon would be
in the hospital." Sandy Lee went on
to say, "as far as the bullets are concerned I bave often heard tbem fly
over ray head when going along tbe
road behind the ranges to the volunteer paiade gronnd at Edinburgh."
Hn did not see nny differenoe in bullets passing harmlessly over your head
and those tbat barely passed over your
head aud wbioh were meant if possible to remain there. On pointing ont
the differenoe Sandy oommeoond tbe
beginning of an argnment bow bnllots
passing safely over you from a target
and bailees passing over yon from the
enemy were ono and the same thing.
Prevlons experiences iu Sandy's theories and arguments oonstrained me to
give up the interviewing business witb
him anyway, knowing tbat Lee treated fighting as he does most othor matters and tbat is in tbe most philosophical manner and as cool as tbe best
man.
From the 18tb of February to tbe
27th of February we have oontinned

OVER ROSSLAND WAY.
For some reason Mr. Heinze is not
pleased with Mr. Mackintosh, aud bas
determined to cast tbe weight of his
influence in favor of his opponent, Mr.
Smith Curtis. Although deeply intei-
ested in the politics of Montana,where
he is endeavoring witb more or lesB
suocess to control the representation of
tbat State in the Senate at Washington,
Mr. Heinze can yet find time to take
a hand in Hritish Columbia affairs
and to influenoe as far as be can the
composition of our next Legislature.
At the time of Mr. Mackintosh's nomination and down to as late a period as
two or three dnys ago, this American
gentleman's paper in Rossland mani
tested a very strong disposition to snp-
port the candidature of the ex-Governor. Indeed, for tbe first week or
two it was most outspoken in its
friendship. Rut latterly it bas been
oalled off, and all its smiles now go to
Mr. Smith Ourtis. As Mr. Heinze was
never known to pursue an object that
did not have some I'romise at tbe end
of it of good to Mr. Heinze himself, it
wonld be interesting to know what it
is he hopes for from tbe pnblio on-
dorsation of tbe Martin Government.
Tbere must bo something in it for
Heinze, or tbe gentlemnn would not
trouble his head with the little matters
of our local politics. Wbat is itV Perhaps his paper will let ns into the
secret as tbe rampaign progresses. In
tbe meantime it may not be unprotlt-
abe to consider whether British Columbians cannot regulate their own
affairs without the interference of a
political boss wbo has done his full
share in making Montana one of the
nest corrupt States ln the American
Union.
This Is one of the abnormal conditions cf the situation in the RnsBland
Riding. But it is not the only one.
We luppis, thore are in every political
party a good many Ioobo tJBb, party-
for-revenne men. Thero would appear
to bo quite n number of that class
among the Libeials of tho Rosslnnd
constituency. There wbb a meeting of
tbem tbe other night, bold at Greenwood. It is snid thnt as many as forty
of them were present. By formal resolution tbey endorsed the candidature of
Mr. Curtis, but wero very careful to
entirely ignore Mr. Ourtis's chief, Mr.
Martin. Tbe purpose of this was to
give the impression tbat they did not
like Mr. Martin, but for petsonnl reasons would support Mr. Martin's Minister of Mines. They know Mr. Martin
was not popular, and they hoped to
gain by seeming to repudiate him.
For ouriosities in politics one requires
to make a study of this Provinoe; it is
full of them. For a diminutive example, this action of the Greenwood
meeting is one of tho most remarkable
Of Its myriad ol enriosities. We do not
suppose that ever before in the expeii-
enoe nf any enlightened conntry an assembly of alleged sane men formally
and solemnly resolvod to support a
member of a Government whose leader
they were ashamed to endorse.
If tbey are suoh obildren in politios
they should have the grace to keep
themselves out of sight. It is impossible to separate Mr. Martin's Minister
from Mr. Martin.   If these men knew
tho most elementary principles of onr
system of government, they wonld
kuow that uo member of a Cabinet
can be invested with a personality
tbat will rendor him distinot from the
Premier. Mr. Curtis can have no individuality in this election ; he is part
and parcel of the Cabinet of whioh
Mr. Martin is chief. The Cabinet is
what Mr. Martin makes it, and if the
head is condemned or rejected bo must
bo the whole of it. It is the Government that is ou dial. Mr. Martin
formed it, got bis dissolution, and is
now appeal ing for publio approval.
It is the Government as a whole we
mnst judge, and we judge it from its
Premier. If Mr. Martin is unworthy
of public confidence, tbe whole Government must go. Wa cannot onndemn
the head nnd vote that a fragment is
worthy, without vory gross absurdity
and stnltillcation. Mr. Cnrtis must
feel proud of inch supporters, and Mr.
Mnrtin will doubtless put on his sardonic grin.	
This iu from tbe Seattle Post-Intelli-
genoer: " A Vancouver reader writes
to objeot to the rendering of speoial
credit to the Dominion becauBO of
bravery shown in battle by troops io-
cruited in Canada. Of these he claims
thnt not less than SO per cent are of
British birth. lu substantiation of
this be incloses a clipping giving tbe
record of the eight meu who constitute
Vancouver's representation iu the supplementary contingent of Strathcona's
Horse. Of these eight men, six were
born in England, one in Ireland and
one in Cauada," The Vnnoouver reader bas a grent deal less wit than he
thinks. There may be no speoial credit
due at all for these oontingents and
supplementaries, and we do not know
tbat Canadians are claiming any ; but
whatever there is belongs to tbe Dominion, and not to the olouds, or tbe
sius, or to tbe sky overhanging it. We
are all Canadians here; nnd of the Dominion, whether born in England, ot
Ireland,or Canada. There were many
Euglisb who went out, brawny,athletic young fellows wbo have knocked
about the world a good deal, and who
were seleoted trim among tbe thousands tbat volnnteerod beoause of tbeir
special fitness for tbe kind of work
ahead of tbem. But they went as
Canadians, and the Dominion claimed
them as oitizene. What matters anyway? We are all whelps ol the same
old lion.
There is another politioal onrioeity
in South Nanaimo. The Liberals tbere
have nominated yonng Mr. Mclnnes
and have pleged themselves to oppose
Premier Martin. That is, tbey oppose
tbe Promier and desire to eloot a supporter of his Government. Some more
politioal infants on tbe rampage.
Their mamas should round them np
and give them a good spanking. Mr.
Mclnnes is as muoh a Martin candidate as Mr. Martin himself. He conld
not be anything else from the very nature of things. He has come up from
Ottawa to help save his father, who is
on trial u'ith Mr. Martin, and shonld
he and tbey win out he will be given
his portfolio in the reconstructed Cabinet. Tbe men who condemn Martin
and vote for Molnnes are as near
idiots as it is safe to get and keep ont
of the asylum.
At Revelstoke, so it is reported, Mr.
Martin said he had approached several
members of the Opposition with the
view of getting them to join bis Government, and as tbey deolined he waB
obliged to fall baok on the Beebes and
the Ryders. That was bis excuse for
bis freak Cnbinet. At Victoria and
New Westminster he gave a different
explanation, did he not? Hia story
there was tbat he thought it better
polioy to go out among the innocent
and untainted for his Cabinet material,
and in any case, he said, he oould not
ask any members of the Legislature to
incept a position as advises to His
Honor, after tbeir studied insult to
him in withdrawing from the Chamber when he oame down to prorogue
the House. The two stories do not
hang together.

The political Bituation iu Nelson ia
much ai. it is throughout tho province
���veiy muoh unsettled. At tho beginning of th;i past woek it looked very
much iib though by the end of tho
woek three candidates would be in the
Held, Mr. Houston, a Conservative,
and a Martin mall, Bat there is still
only one. Mr. Houston bus Ihe Hold to
hiuiself nnd will havo nntil tomorrow
night, when n Consorvtilivo ciindidpto
will ho chosen nt it convention to be
held in Fraternity Roll.   Who will be
selected Is still nil Open question. Several   names   hnve     been     mention."!,
among them will Irvino, George Nee-
hinds, John Elliot, W. A. Muurtnimld
nnd Frank Flotoher. It is likely that
all (if theso names will he placed before   the   convention.    If   tho   field is
not then cleared up  by withdrawals a
ballot will prnhntly bn taken and the
candidate chosen in this manner.
The Liberals pcoiii to hnve changed
their niindH and it is more thnn probable that they will not have n candidate, If this proves to be trap, Dr.
G. A. B. Hall will undoubtedly be
ohosen. The Liberals believe Dr. Hall
to lie one of the strongest men iu tins
Hiding, beoanso nf bis good standing
in Nelson and bis popularity nniong
the miners. He in being pressed hy
his friends to miter tho Hold and an
Riionnoement from him before the end
of the pr.vent week is not an Improbability.
In the Martin camp Mr. Charloi
Hillyer still holds the fort, and will
probably be the nomineo. With Mr.
John A. Turner ont of the running
Mr. Hillyer seems to be tbe most
available man. He ia recognized ns
tho lender of Iho Martin forces iu the
Nelson Hiding nnd it is claimed by his
friends wonld develop considerable
strength if be would enter tho field.
Mr. Hillyer himself declines to say
whether or not he will be a oandidnte.
"Yon oan rost assured tbat we will
havo a oandidate," said Mr. Hillyer
to a Miner man yesterday, "bnt who
that enndidato will be we aie not yet
preparod to say."
"Is there any likelihood of thnt candidate boing one Charles Hillyer?" h3
was asked.
"That is a hardly a fair question.
You'll have to wait awhile," wus the
reply.
Witb a Martin oandidate in the field
it will be a four cornered fight aud a
very warm one.

t Mr. bur Finds I
���������������������������������������������������������������������������
Mr. Thmoas Kenny, president of the
MeichantB Bank of Halifax, is some-
llnng of a story teller and ia therjfore
an entertainer of more than ordinary
excellence. At the banquet tendered
to him by Mr. George Kydd nt tne
Hume Hotel on Friday evening, he related an incidont which occurred dur-
iug the days of the oonstrnolion ol the
C.P.K., just at the time the Dominion
Government  bad appropriated $x,000,-
000 for construction of the road along
the Fraser river.
"Somo of the Atlantio Coast people
wero very much opposed to what thev
lislieved thou to be useless expenditure
of tuouey," said Mr. Kenny, "and
they criticised very severely the notion
of the Dominion Government. It was
the burning issue at the time and the
tiiaoussiou of it took preoedenoe cer
everything else.   At the time of wbich
1 speak I wns in New York Oity and
liad occasion to visit the house of a
friend there. I met there a prominent
oilizen of Minneapolis and wns introduced as Mr. Kenny from Canada.
'Prom Canada, eh?' said the Western
gentleman. 'Then you're one of those
wlio aro kicking about the building of
the 0. P. R. I oan't understand why
you do it. It's going to be the making
of yon.'
"1 suggested to him," said Mr.
Kenny, "that It was going to entail
Bomethiug of a hardship upon us when
��e came to pay for tbe road.'
"'Pay for il,' ho exclaimed, 'you
wont havo to pny for it. It's tbe people the road will bring into the oouu-
���ry that will pay for it; in other
words, the people who nre direotly
I'onefltted by it. Yon have nothing
to lose.'
"I called his attention then to the
valuable coal deposits of Nova Scotia
and snpgoated that they deserved more
attention than tho undeveloped western
country," oontinned Mr. Kenny.
"'Coal deposits,' he exclaimed,
wl>7 jour coal deposits oan't hold a
dandle to the wonderful ooal deposits
Shout Nanaimo, in British Ooiumbia.
There in enough coal there to supply
th" entire Paoiflo Const.'
"Then I nriolia of our lumter inter-
e"tH," said Mr Kenny, "and again be
"plied   qnickly:"
'You're lumber interests cannot be
compared with those of British Colum
bia. With a railroad into. British Columbia yon will begin th�� manufacture
of lumber wbioh will find a market in
all parts of the earth. Talk abont lnmber, why sir, tbere is no lnmber in tbe
world like that in British Columbia.
It's the grandest yon ever saw.'
"With considerable temerity," continued Mr. Kenny, "I ventured to
mention onr  fishing interests."
"'Why yon people of tbe Atlantio
don't krow anything about fish,' exclaimed    my    newly   found    friend.
CORRESPONDENCE.
Windermere, April 38.���Development
work on the Red Line mines on an extensive soale will-be resumed almost
immediately.
Tbe Joan group at Skooknmcbuok is
being worked on quite an extensive
scale by James R. MoLeod et al, of Peterborough. This property haa an extraordinary large showing of high
grade copper ore.
The Shamrock olaim, an extension
of the Paradise gronp, will  be worked

'What  do  your   ood and your herring jqnlte  extensively  during the  coming
amount to when  oompared  witb  tbe
raagnifloent salmon of the Fraser River? Some dny British Columbia will
have the biggest fisheries in tbe world
and you people nf the Atlantio will so
far forget youi fish thnt yon will dine
on tbo flsh that is found in the streams
of your Paoi flo Coast Provinoe.'
"'And in addition to all this,'he
continued, 'the climate of British Columbia is a-much better climate than
that of Nova Sooia.'
"My American cousin was certainly
enteraining," oontinned Mr. Kenny,
"and while I could uot admit the
strict accuracy of hia comparison between the Atlantio and the Paoific
Provinces of our Dominion, yet I was
glad to hear bis eulogium of British
Oolnmbia, and tbat tbe cost of the construction of the great transcontinental
railway was to be paid by the people
it would bring into Canadn. Some of
tho statements of my Minneapolis
friend have been verified. Sailing
ships in which I hnve been interested
have carried cargoes of Frasor River
salmon to London and have been loaded with lnmber at Vancouver for China and Japan and South America and
one lor London. He was right also in
his estimate of tin unportanca of tbe
C.P.R to Canada, for the construction
of that road baa done more to attraot
tbe attention of the people of England
and of the people of the United States
than even the confederacy of tbe British America Provinces. It baa made
n nation of us. All the advantages
whioh British Oolnmbia possessed
when these statements were made by
my American friend she retains today.
You have now two C. P. Railways
traversing yonr Provinoe from east to
west, and in addition yon bave yonr
recently discovered mineral deposits of
incalculable value, and wbioh bid fair
to make your Provinoe one of tbe most
wealthy countries of the world."
Mr. Konny, in conclusion, raferreed
to the advantages Nelson possessed for
the conduct of a large distributing
trade, with two railways converging
here and its large and economical
water transportation.
season.
An English syndicate expeut t:> develop the Blaok Prinoe, on Bonlder
Creek. Work will commence during
tbe early part of May.
The Jnpiter Star, adjoining the
Blaok Prinoe mine, has even a larger
showing than the Blaok Princo.
George E. A. Storke, one of tbe original owners of the Delphine mine, is a
principal owner in thia property.
The White Elephant and Holy Moses,
situated on MoDonald Creek, will be
worked daring tha coming season.
Tbey are extensions of the Red Line
group.
Peterborough is going ahead with a
rush, town lots continue to advance
and buildings are going up in all directions. Peterborough will undoubtedly beoome a metropolis of East
Kootenay within a very abort space of
time, in faot the town is going ahead
with leaps and hounds. All tbe old
timers throughout tbe entire district
bave great faith in the future of tbis
town.
Navigation has been open between
Peterborough and tbe main line for
several weeks.
W. S. Santo * Oo., Peterborough,
have their own boats for freighting
form the main line. Thia firm has one
of tbe largest atooka in the entire
Kootenay oonntry.
The Bear gronp, en Bugaboo Creek,
owned by Robert MoKeenan et al, will
be worked on an extensive soale. Thia
propeity baa an enormous showing of
oopper ore and waa located during the
month of September, 1899.
Messrs. Kimpeton & Pitts, tbe pioneer merobants, bave one of the largest atooka of general goods and minora'
supplies in the oamp. This firm has
been tbe backbone of tbe Windermere
mining distriot for quit3 a few years
and ia looked upon as tbe proapeotor's
friend.
The Peterborough stage is now running on a daily service to Athalmer
and Windermere.
Tbe Lucky Boy property, situated
on Toby Creek, baa au extenaive showing of copper-gold ore. It is understood thai this property ii owned by
William Hnd.ier et al, of Kaalo. It ia
oertaiuly a veiy promising proposition.
