Eleventh Year
INVASION OF
CAPE COLONY
Great Britain Has Few Details of Actions of
Invaders.
Said to  Be  a Scheme to
Secure Better Terms
of Peace.
London, Jan. 12.���History fulls.to
furnish a parallel to the Iloer invasion of Cape Colony. A whole month
has elapsed since the Republicans
crossed the Orange River, and Still
Great Britain knows next to nothing
of their numbers, whereabouts or doings, and still less of the objects of
tbe Inroad. The only thing known
with tolerable certainty is that they
are progressing southward, over some
sparsely inhabited roads where they
escape observation. Other logical explanation seems to be the largely accepted idea that the invasion forms
part of a great, organized scheme of
General Dewet to strike terror into
the British colony which, unquestionably, is nearly denuded of troops,
and trust to the chapter of accidents
to aehieve suoh success as will enable
the Roers to look for better terms of
peace. The halting policy of the invaders, however, seems to. threaten to
, defeat their aims and has enabled the
hastily enrolled levies of volunteers
to occupy vital strutegiq points, while
there are some signs that'the gathering of troops in the rear of the Burghers is beginning to press them
southward into the arms of the British moving from the southward instead of attempting to drive them
back again across ti.e. Orange River,.
where they might be enabled to rejoin
General Dewet.
Seldom has there been such a universal condemnation of the utterances
of a public man as greeted the recent
address of the Duke of Norfolk to the.
Pope, expressing hope of the restoration of the temporal independnnce
of the Pontiff. Bitter as have been
the denunciation of the Italian press,
the comments of the London newspapers have been quite as caustic.
"Nothing could be more contemptible
than the Duke of Norfolk's behavior, " says The Dally News. "If the
Italian Government had known he
was visiting. Rome for the purpose of
protesting 'against their presence in
their own 'Capital they would have
been perfectly prepared. Not content
with insulting the King of Italy and
the people of Rome his despicable address alio condemned the toleration of
Italian pratestants by the Italian
Government."
SEES THE INEVITABLE.
Salisbury Recognizes Russia's Hold
Upon the North of China.
London, Jan. 12.���The Dally Chronicle makes the following important
statement: "From a trustworthy
source we learn that Lord .Salisbury
has agreed to cede ��� to Russia the railway from Nil* Chwang to Shan Hi
Kwau. It is not known whut compensation will be received for the
concession." Leading financiers
versed in Chinese affairs, who were
interviewed,- appeared to think that
if tne news ���'tons correct it Indicates
that Lord Salisbury recognized the
Impossibility of preventing the par-.
tition of China and that Russia would
?et the north and Great Britain the
ang Tse Valley. The original prospectus of the railway company stipulated that (be bondholders, mainly
British, could be bought out at any
time at the rate of .t'l'in per ��1(1(1 bond.
The Dally Chronicle In an editorial
on the subject taunts Lord Salisbury,
Russie. The Minister of Marine has
asked for particulars regarding the
acts of bravery, and in response to
the proposal of several Senators, tbe
men will be decorated. Subscriptions
are flowing into tbe newspapers.

A HIGH SCHOOL
Nelson is to have a High School at
once. Dr. Arthur, secretary of the
school board, received information to
this effect this morning from the Department of Education
Only tbe bare statement was made
and nothing further is known. It
does not mean, however, that a hitrb
school building will be erected here
nt once as for some time all the pnpils
who will attend will be able to be
accommodated in quarters to be rented in existing buildings. It is a very
important thing for tbe City, however, as it manes Nelson tbe educational centre for the Kootenays. In

Power Plant on Kootenay River.
Aldermen Go In by Acclamation and Will Be Sworn
In at Once.
The new Council which will sit
about the long table in the City Hall
during the year 1901 will probably
hold its first meeting on Monday
night, as stated in The Miner yesterday. It is understood that Mayor
Fletcher, and Aid. Gillette, Irving,
Paterson, Selous, Madden and Hamilton will ask to be sworn in as soon
as they are declared elected on Monday at 2 o'clock, and that a meeting

for the sale of bonds for the erection
of an electric lighting and power
plant near Bonmngton Falls. It is

OUT TO KILL
At six o'clock on Thursday morning
the thermometer registered 11 degrees
below zero at Slocan City.
The committee appointed by the citizens of Slooan Ciiy some time ago
to look after the water rights on Goat
and Springer creeks, intend leaving
for Nelson on Monday, to attend the
sittings of tbe water commissioner's
court. It will be held in Government
Agent Turner's office, on the 15th. It
is understood the private company
seeking the privilege on Goat Creek
will combat the citizens pretty strongly for tbe right.
Engineer Brock and Fireman War-
nock got up against it last Sunday
while coming down the grade from
tbe Fernie mine. The braker refused
to work and the train got beyond control. As a result the train began
turning reverse curves at a rate that
prompted Brock and Warnock to jump
for safety. They did so,and Warnock
escaped uninjured but Brock was unlucky as usual and got pounded up
badly but broke no bones. The train
held the track and stopped at the loot
of the grade. Messrs. Cunningham &
Andersen closed a contraot with tbe
smelting department of the British
Columbia Copper Company for the
complete installation of the smelter
electrical machinery plant. . Work is
now in progress. This firm is also in
receipt of the electrical plant for the
Standard Pyritic smelter which they
are about to install.
Captain J. W. Troup, Superintendent for the 0. P. R. for the Kootenays
and Yale, Mr. F. P. Gutellus, the
resident engineer, and Mr. John S.
Lawrence, the trainmaster of the Columbia Sc Western, were in the olty
yesterday, says The Rossland Miner.
Capt. Troup says the business of tbe
C. P. R. is very satisfactory in the
Kootenays and Yale. Of ore alone
40,000 tons per month is being transported and an increase is looked for
during the spring, summer and fall.
A rotary snow plow hag been stationed at Trail for the purpose of keeping
the road from Trail to Rossland open
and also between Robson and Cascade. Should the fall of snow be
much greater it would necessitate Its
belig put to work. The big Shay
locomotive, which operates between
Rossland and Trail, has considerable
difficulty during the pnst few days in
making the trips. However, should
the snow get too deep tho rotary plow
would clear off the tracks very quickly.
At the II. C. mine Summit camp,the
main shaft is now down past the 400-
foot level and Is Oeing continued. The
pay roll averages 105 employees, and
this will doubtless be Increased when
new levels are opened up. Thu new
year starts off in a satisfactory manner in ore shipments, the total tonnage from the first of the year being
140, says the Slocan Drill. Of this
amount the Arlington shipped 100
tons, and the remainder is credited
to the Two Friends. At the outset
the latter property has doubled its
export over last year, and it is In
shape to continue regular shipments.
Ore is coming down freely from the
Arlington and Its output will be kept
to three figures for many weeks to
come, wild the practical certainty of
exceeding Its record for 11100. Next
week will see the Black Prince and
Enterprise enter the list. It is expected the Bondholder will soon have
another oar down, while the Speculator may commence shipping at an
early date,
Thomas McAllister Goes Gun
nlng for Policeman Hislop and Is Arrested.
A sensation was sprung at the po
lice court this morning when Thomas
McAllister, who has been in the em
ployment of Steeper <fc Co. for some
time past, was brought before Mag
istrate Crease to answer to a serious
charge. He was charged with carry
ing an offensive weapon in the shape
of a 38 calibre revolver for the pur
pose of killing Charles G. Hislop. The
only evidence given in tbe case was
that of Mr. Hislop, who laid the information, and the case was remanded until Monday morning so that
further information could be obtained.
The charge is a serious one, the
maximum being five years in the penitentiary. The trouble between the
two men aud the story of the arrest
are best told in Mr. Illslop's own
words. In giving his evidence he
said: "I was on duty at 10 o'clock
last evening and met the prisoner
on Baker Street near the Tremont
Hotel. We both walked to the Bodega saloon and here I stooped to
pict a piece of paper from tha sidewalk, and at the same timo I heard
something click like a revolver being
cocked. On looking up I saw him
put a revolver in his pocket. Prisoner then went into the Bodega saloon, and whilo getting a drink sal.i
to the bartender, 'I will fix him.
The accused also displayed his gun
and said, 'There are four bullets for
bim und one for myself. They will
never hang me.' The bartender tried
to get hliu to give up the gun but lie
would not. Constable Kerr wus then
culled, and the accused was followed
to the Queen's Hotel. Ho talked
with Kerr, and said, '1 will till him
full of lead.' I was standing In the
door of Mr. living's store and when
the accused came along I sprang
out and arrested him."
Considerable difficulty was encountered before the prisoner wub locked
up, and several times he tried to
bring his revolver into play. McAllister was once before arrested by
Hislop and that is where tho trouble
started.
TO PROLONG LIFE.
A Vancouver Student Hopes to Discover a Chemical Aid for Nuture.
Vancouver, B. C, Jan. 12.���There
is a student in Vancouver who has
been giving up almost his entire tlmo
for the last four years in an attempt
to discover the mystery of the decay
of the human tissues. He has acquired a library of books treating on the
subjeot, and claimed to The Miner
correspondent lately that ho expected
to discover a system of treatment
which combined with a chemical preparation would prolong the lives of
the present generntion beyond a hundred years. Ho nlso believes that ho
can, when ho has made the discovery,
take a healthy child of twelve or fourteen as a subjeot, train the child to
observe certain laws   of  health  well
known to every medical man,and pro-
ljng the child's life with his poison
antidote to 125 years.
He says the way men live now is a
violation to nature, and when a man
reached 40 years his bones are so saturated with the poisons of decay that
he commences to gradually die, while
at that iijfe thu supply and demand of
life should be equally balanced and
for many years after; that in spite of
the race of sickly men on earth he believes science will find an antidote to
check the deposit of these poisons in
the blood, and tbat men at sixty will
be as full of vitalty and youthful vigor as they aro at forty today.

Mr. D. A. Crawford, who has been
engaged upon the construction of the
concentrator at the Highland mine at
Ainsworth, arrived in the City yesterday. He reports that the work upon
the mill has progressed satisfactorily
and that tbe mill will be in operation by the 15th of this month. At
the present time about 30 men are cm-
ployed and the work is being pushed
as rapidly as possible. The work upon the mill proper has been completed
and only a few minor matters remain-
to be completed. The heating plant
has been installed and Is working to
perfection. The power plant was completed a week or so ago. It is of
such a capacity that it can furnish
power enongh to run a mill twice the
size of the one that is being erected.
The tramway has been in operation
and the ore bins at tbe mines are full
and everything in this respect is ready
for the operating of the mill.

familiar with Nelson's leading citizens unless il is thoroughly acquainted with them. The idea of calling
the former C. P. R. freight man
'Charley" Peters and our prospective
Mayor "John" Fletcher.
JUST ANOTHER LAPSE.
We cheerfully acquit Mr. Houston
and his paper of the slightest taint of
malice in their latest slap at The
Miner. It names two Toronto newspapers which it charges with treachery against one of tho Mayoralty candidates in that city, and says The
Miner is similarly guilty towards Mr.
McKillop. The papers in question are
understood to have encouraged Mr.
John Shaw to offer as a candidate; hi
did offer, and for a time they gave
him their support. Then they deserted him and went over to Mr. How-
land, who has just been eleoted by a
largo majority. Baldly stated, these
appear to be tbe facts of the case; but
at tbis distance we can scarcely judge
of the motives which governed the
two papers in their course, and we
certainly do not feel disposol to accept the version of a prejudiced and
not always scrupulous rival like The
Toronto Telegram. We have no doubt
those papers had good reason for their
action, but if they had not it dees not
happen to be any concern of the people of Nelson.
It was not through a malicious spirit that Mr. Houston accuses The Miner
of a like treachery.   It was because of
an ignorance too dense   to distinguish
the very great   difference in   the   circumstances.    The   Miner had nothing
to  do   with   the   candidature of  Mr.
McKillop.    It   did   not know that he
either desired  or would consent to be
a candidate, and   until the announcement of his   acceptance was   brought
to us for publication it   did not know
that any influence was being  brought
to bear to   persuade   him.    It   has so
high an opinion, howevor, of Mr. McKillop, both as a   private  citizen and
us a public man,   that it did not hesitate a moment in expiessing its great
satisfaction   that    he  bad  consented
to run.    A short time  afterwards Mr.
Fletcher    announced    himself.    Here
were two candidates, either of   whom
The  Miner   could   cordially   support,
for both were   good men.    It did   not
hesitate to express its regret,however,
that Mr. Fletcher should have thought
it necessary to  oppose Mr. McKillop;
but having done so,   the people   could
choose between them, with confidence
thut thoy would   have a safe   man   in
either case.   Subsequently Mr. McKillop dropped out, and   wo are sure   he
will bo the first to say that   in   doing
so he was not in  the   slightest   influenced by anything Tho Miner said   or
did or did not   say or  do.   That  Mr.
Houston sees In these  facts something
similar to tho condition as represented
in Toronto, is only one more, instance
of   the  crass   stupidity   with   which
that dlstinuglshed publicist is   so   often and so unuacountably overcome.
We have not yet seen it stated
whether the census to be taken on the
1st day of March next is to be de jure
or de facto enumeration. Both systems are in favor among tbe nations*
md at different times both have been
employed in Canada. Under the de
jure system, those who are legal residents only are enumerated, and under the other only those who In fact
are resident at the time the census is
taken.
A Chicago astronomer has ascertained by exact calculation that in three
million years from this date tho sun
will be burnt out. Everything will
then, of course, freeze up, and the universe will forever be in darkness.
We would beg Mr. Galliher to call Mr.
Mulock's attention to this, and to
suggest that if be intends to make
any improvement in the Kootenay
mail service lie had better "get a
move on." 	
Seattle is booming The enterprising citizens of that city subscribed
$100,000 in order that a firm of shipbuilders should secure a contract for
constructing a United States battle-
ihip there. Andrew Carnegie has do
nated $200,000 towards the erection ot
a public library, and the City has
promised to spend 850,000 yearly on
its maintenance. The next thing we
know the Seattleites will make it
stop raining on the Sound.
The Victoria Colonist quotes a
sharp wigging which Tbe Guelph
Mercury admisters to the Canadian
people for their indiscriminate use of
Ihe American flag in all public and
so many private decorations. Tbe
lecture is a proper one. We can respect the flag of the neighboring Re
public without so constantly flaunting it. It would be regrettable, indeed, if Canadians manifested towards
it the contemptible hatred to which
the average American gives expression whenever the British flag is displayed ; but in our greater generosity
und friendliness, it is not necessary
that wu should pay so poor a compliment to our own patriotism as to put
a foreign flag on a level with our
own.
Theru is certainly no limit to the
march of progress or the opening up
of possibilities in the Kooenays. The
Miner's announcement this week that
native duvulopmenc had commenced on
nn Iron mine within a few iiiIIch of
tho ''Ity caused not a little surprise
It was woll known that there were
largo Iron ilupoHits In the Kootenays.
but they were all lo apparently remote
ftOtn transportation that the development of any of them was not looked
for. Tho nniiuncnnint, too, that the
deposit which Messrs. Teutzul and
Devlin have secured, Is one of very
great extent, opciiH up almost limitless possibilities in the way of ilovol-
opment. With unexcelled water power within a few rods of the claims, it
. Is not too much lo expect that sonic
day Sloean Junction will be turning
out all tbe iron and steel required for
the manufacture of machinery for the
mines of this wonderfully rich
country.   ^^^^^^^^^^^
Tho Toronto Globe gives notice to
all concerned, through tho medium of
a leading article, that the Dominion
Government aro breaking with tbe
Canodlan Pacific Railway Company.
The tenor of tho article will be understood from its opening sentence:
"Thu huge mistake of turning half

Alfred Harmsworth's iden of a
twentieth century newspaper is better
���than Pulitzers', anyhow.���Syracuse
Post-Standard.
He may suit the English taste in
journalism, but he is still several laps
behind the plain American night editor with a corncob pipe and a vai legated vocabulary.���Chicago Chronicle.
Mr. Harmsworth claims that he can
save the time of the reader by giving
him a book instead of a newspaper of
the size of the Hartford Times. In
act, he does nothing of the sort.���
Hnrtford Post.
The news is given in cleur concentrated form. We could wish that
there were fewer and less flamboyant
pictures, but we nre lhanfkul for the
retrenchment effected by Mr. Ilarum-
worth. We cun, however, pay Air.

it was reported at the annual meeting

TRIED THREE TIMES
To l"ft Ooffor to a sensitive Body.
Thore nre great numbers of highly
organized people upon whom cotl'ce
acts ns a clearly defined poison. In
Rome extreme cases tho poisonous
effects will show in from three to five
minutes, in other eases a long time is
required, and in some cases the body
can stand the effects for years, but the
olt'ects nre very sure, and many times
result in a fixed condition of orgnni
disease that is difficult or impossible
to be rid of.
Mrs. .1. W. Grant, of Deepwater
Mo.-,writes interestingly of her experience with coffee. "After using coffee
a number of years and gradually failing In health, I got so I could eat but
very link* breakfast at any time and
many days could not eat nt all. 1
would drink a tup of eoffeo and try to
ont n little bread.
"I knew the coffee wns hurting
ine but I did not seem to be able to
take anything else. .Inst the uiinulc I
took n switllow of coffee my norves
would begin to tingle, a weak, faint
sensation would run ail over my body,
my wrists burning and aohing, the
buck of my neck hurting, until it finally Rot so bud that 1 would have to
hold my head on my hand while
drink ing my cup of coffee.
"I would frequently have to run to
the door for breath, feeling as
though'1 would faint away. I got so
I O'inid scarcely sit up to oat mv
Utile breakfast, f)o It went no until
1 run Into nervous 'prostration completely. Nothing would stay on my
Stomach, I called In physicians, who
told me   I must travel, and gave   men
but littlu enoiuragemtnt  of getting
well.
"A friend told inn mv trouble wis
Coffee I I didn't believe It, hut fur
some reason I Concluded to stop drinking coffee nnd try tho Postum Food
Coffee that bad been so highly recommended. 1 was greatly astonished lo
find that In a few day I bad no more
of the nervous i-pells at breakfast nnd
begun lo eat food of most any kind
and every kind.
"I begni, to recover very quickly,
but, like lots of coffee nnd tobnceo
slaves. I thought I would like to try
the coffee ngnln, so I started In on it
and the old trouble came rn. I
stopped again and went to Postum
and begun to improve in health. I
did this foolish thing three different
times, nnd cncli time thnt I would on
back to coffee I would run down lu
health nnd was threatened with the
snmc old troubles.
"I final I v learned how to make Postum so well by letting It boll long
enough, that it tnsted ns good ns fine
Java coffee, nnd from thnt limu on 1
have never bad any desire to go baik
to coffee. I am now well, and there
is no question but that my recovery Is
due enllrelv to the leaving off of coffee
and using Postum VqoA Cppec."
The tug Procter which has been lying Idle during the past week was to
have gone iuto barge service this
morning, but Captain Kurtz was taken sick with a severe cold and is now
confined to the General   Hospital.
Mr. Melville Parry, honorary secretary of the Nelson Operatic Society,
has just received word from Herr P.
Steincr, of Spokane, stating that an
operatic society had been formed
there and in the near future the
(Icisha would be produced. If arrangements can be made the play
will be produced at the Nelson Opera
House.
The new tug, which is being constructed by the C. P. K. at the local
shipyards, will be ready to launch
within a week or 10 days. It wns intended to have it completed betore
that time but the work wus retard
ed owing to the non-arrival of ma
teriul. The lighting plant is bding
installed und will be completed in a
few days. A portion of the upper
deck is yet to be completed nnd then
the boat will be ready for service.
There is n City ordinance or bylaw which provides that residents of
Nelson should k��ep the walks abutting on their property free of snow.
Some of tho residents are now observing this ordinance hot the majority
are not and as a result many of the
streets nre in an almost impassnble
condition. Women find walking riifr!
cult and a blocit of unclean sidewalk
is sufficient to thoroughly souk their
skirts.    The City officials should   act.
The old store just vacated by
Messrs Kirkpatrlck and Wilson, on
linker Street is to be remodeled considerably. Mr John Hepburn has
been yiven the contract. The lo.;er
portion of the building will be converted into two ofilces, oue to be occupied by Mr. II. li. Cameron. The
front of each office will be fitted with
plate glass. The upper story will be
arranged for apartments. A stairway
to the upper portion of the building
at the east side of the store will be
constructed. Work will be started on
Monday.
Capt. Fall.lately from South Africa,
the officer appoinled by the Imperial
authorities to take charge of the recruiting in Canada for Baden-Powell's Constabulary will Mkely arrive
from England within the Jext week
or two, when the recruiting *n this
country will start in earnest. As one
thousand men will be taken from Can
tula, and all difficulties regarding
pay and transportation of the men to
South Africa have been settled, there
will be no difficulty in getting the
full complement of men required. A
large number of young men in Nelson
are anxiously waiting the opening of
the recruiting office here and there
will be no trouble in securing' from
s25 to 50 picked men in this City.
WELCOME THEM HOME.
"Citizen" Thinks   Returning Soldiers
Should Be Feted.
The   following     letter    has    been
handed The Miner:
Editor Miner:
Sir���In reading your press dispatches I notice meniton of three returning
members of the Second Contingent to
South Africa, who enlisted in Nelson, nnmcly, Brown, Eaton and
Forbes. These aro well known men
in this City and they have a large
circle of friends who are glad to see
them return in good health. In all
the Eastern cities we rend of the
grand receptions the returning volunteers have met with. Now why cannot our City Fathers make the return
of theso men a civic event and keep
Nelson'b end up? We gave them a
good send-off. Why cannot wo give
them a warm welcome back? The
cost would not amount to much. It
could he easily arranged either by
public contribution or by a grant
from the City. For instance could
not the City arrange a procession
composed of the militia company,who
I am sure would turn out, firemen,
band and citizens, and in tho evening
a publio reception which might tnkc
tbe form of a smoker or concert under the auspices of the City. The
proceeds of tho smoker might go towards making a presentation to each
of the guests. It Is useless for us to
expect a militia company of thirty or
forty men to make a success of any
reception without the support of the
citizens nnd judging from the Bupport
Nelson has given our militin company,
deserving as it is, that would not
amount lo much. Let our City Futh-
eri make up and complete their term
by a good act. I believe Mayor Houston, who has never been found wanting in patriotism, would take up thiB
mutter, if backed up by the Council.
It would be a shame to Ignore the
return of these Nelson hoys.

clerk had made a mistake in the price.    It was marked $20.00, but I felt relieved when my neighbor came home with one exactly
the same at the same price.    This is the way'they are selling them all now." '
