ACTIVITY
Both the British and Boers
are  Active  at   All
Points.
Rundle Drives the Boers from
the Hills at Dewetsdorp.
No IBoubt But That the Boer
Women are Fighting
in Ranks.
London, April 88.��� Despatches arriving from the sunt of war clearly indicate activity nt all poinls where British and Boor forcos aro in striking
distance. Intercut for the nioniuul
-centers at Dewetsdorp and Wepener,
Where lighting ia in progress.
A despatch received from Aliv.nl
North, dated the 21st, nays thoro was
ihenvy firing on the various (lays between Dewetsdorp and Wepener and
around Wepener on Saturday, lint uo
particulars hnvo beon received.
A special dispatch from Maseru,
(luted Saturday, says:
'"The investment, of Wepener continues. Tho Boers seamed determined
to do their utmost to capture the garrison before relief arrives."
The activity of tlio Hoers ut Elands-
kingte apparently has failed to draw
���General Boiler, if that was its object,
into doing moie than repel the attncl
made oi, his advance posts.
A despatch from Warrenton, dated
Saturday, snys:
"There  lias  been   intermittent and
ineffective  sniping by tho Boers, boll
during  the day and   night at  the station the past ten days. "

and brilliant servico entitled him, in
order to serve his country. Whatever
the outcome of the Boer wnr, Loid
Roberts' name will stand in England's
military annals as ono of the most
snooessful aud best loved of her commanders. Tbis fact is ever before the
publio and they believe their Gom-
niandor-in-Ohiof iu South Afrioa to bo
milos above any jealousy or rivalries
that might actuate other Generals.
London, April 21.���A letter from a
uurso, in a hospital at Cape Town,
corroborates au unpleasant feature of
tbe war. The writer says the medioal
offlore, for sanitary reasons, forced a
number of Boer prisoneis to bathe in
the river behind the hospital. Two of
them absolutely refused to strip and
whon forced to do so, it was found
thoy were women in men's olothes.
The writer adds: "Quite a number of
thn dead on Ihe bnt-th fields have been
found to ho women similarly disguised, a ml worse than all it has often been
theso women who have guilty of the
atrocities, suoh as killing the wounded, eto., mentioned iu the dispatohes."
PINAFORE
Nelson's First Attempt at Am
ateur Opera Will be
Successful.
Maseru, Basntoland, April 21.���The
Boers around Wepener have been reinforced and aro now stronger than
ever. The riling of oannon and rifles
heard tcday in the direction of Dewet-
dorp was looked upon aH meaning that
relief was approaching. Heavy firing
is hourly expected. Two huge Boei
forcos left the vicinity of Wepener
this morning, ono going in the direction of Dewetdorp nud the other
toward Rouxville. The Boers are ex-
ciled and jubilant iu oonsequence of
President Steyn's assertion that foreign intervention is certain, and tbat
it iB only nocess'arv to oontiuue the
struggle for a short timo. Generals
Dewet and Oliver are inspiring the
Bnrgberj with inflammatory patriotic
speeches. Several houses have been
lilled with Boer wounded and others
have been sent to Lndysraud.

m her life in tbo sIuhib of London and
.vcro n duplicate of the oostumo in
which tbo did her mission work in
.Vbitocliapol, Soven Dials and other
launta of London's lower classes. Her
iddress was a most eloquent one and
lelivered with great force. It carried
lonviotion to many of her hearers.
The stage was filled with Salvation
\rmy ofllcors and the baud attired in
heir sailor suits. Tho meeting open-
id by a prayer from tho Rcoreud Robert Frew nnd Miss Booth, before her
iddress played sevornl eoleotions on

Miss Booth held her nudienoo iu

CAPE   NOME.
Next week the Nelaon publio will
be entertained by the first amateur
presentation of comio opera, and in
every detail andparticular it will be of
the best kind. The eoenery, wbioh ip
remarkable effective and pretty, representing the quarter deck of a man-of-
war lying off Portsmouth, was specially painted for the oocasionh y Mr.
Helton, now a resident of tbis city.
Every attention has been given to tbe
properties in use, sueli as tbe captain's
bridge, capstan, oannon, eto. Hen
Steiner bas under bis direction a fnll
orchestra of 15 pieces, which bear evidence ot carefnl rehearsal. The tone at
present is a little too powerful for the
size of the theater and tbere ia a slight
tendency iu certain passages to mar
tbe singing of tbe prinoipals by a too
marked forte effect. There is, however, no doubt that in tbis respeot tbe
well trained and practiced ear of tbeir
conductor will tone down this slight
defeot and adjust bis orchestra to tbe
voioes.
Of the singing of the chorus, which
is a strong one, nnmbering forty-five
voices, tbe best can be said. They
produce an evenly balanced, full volume of tone.
The lady principals, Mesdames Mac
ouald, Goepel and Whalley, taking part
in tbe opera are Nelson favorites, and
give evidence of careful and conscientious study, Mrs. Macdonald as Josephine being notioeably good. Mr,
Louhore's singing in the part of Ralph
Raokstraw, will be a treat to a Nelson
audience. His voioe is a pare lyric
tenor.
A slight change bad to be made in
the cast as advertised owing to tbe departure of Mr. Wortbington, Mr. Williamson taking the part. He possesses
a rich, high baritone voioe anl does
the "business" of his part in a very
oieditable manner. Mr. James Lawrence, as tho boatswain, has a commanding figuie and a nautioal presence, wbioh, together witn hia very
pleasing voice, assures his part being
fully np to the mark. Mr. G. B. Winter, in the charaoter part of Diok Dead-
eye, is simply splendid. He baa already
proved himself a capable actcr and
there is no doubt bnt that bis part will
be thoroughly well sustained. Little
Miss Quinlan dances tbe hornpipe
daintily and cleverly and her part as
tbe rniddie will uot be the least attractive feature.
A Miner representative was presont
at the full rehearsal on Friday night
and .can assure the publio that a rich
treat awaits them when tbe curtain
rises on Nelson's first attempt at amateur opera. The chorus^ is very fine,
the orchestra full aud well halanoed,
and will be the beBt tbat was ever
heard in the Interior. As Josophine
Mrs. Maodonald will oertalnly oarry
the cnief honors. Her aeting ia very
clever and finished and her sweet and
tunefnl voice will bo heard to splendid
advantage. Mr. Fieeman Lake, at Sir
Joseph Porter, K. C. B., haB a part
tbat he is very capable of filling. In
the reberasals that are yet to oome he
should pay more attention to perfecting his lines aud making his voice fill
the house. Tils is something some of
the othor prinoipals need to give some
attention. The ohorua needa to pot
more freoneia iu their action nnd to
behava as if tboy wero taking part in
everything that, waa going ou. Mr.
Steiner, whilo probably aevere in
treating with amateurs, has aueoeeded
in getting his churns, oiohestra and
principals admirably together and a
great deal of the credit which will at-
taoh to the prodootlon will   belong to

Some   Details of  tha  Life There Last
Winter.
Victoria, April 31.��� 0. P. Dam and
Capt. Heokman, of Nome City, who
left there January 24, aud came heie
by the Katuiai route, anived in Victoria as passengers on the '.'< iInge City
this morning. They had brought out
the U. S. mail and computed the
last stage of tbeir journey in company
with J. D. Morgan nud John Fredericks, also from Nome. They had
left fully a mouth in advance of the
Messrs. Dam and Heckman, who are
of Seattle originally, while Messrs.
Morgan and Frdereioks still call San
Francisco their home.
It bas been a quiet winter at Nome
according to Mr. Dam, and while
there had been considerable scratching
of the conntry in all diretinns no re-
real ly uotnblo new discoveries have
been reported sinoe tbo last advices
from the  oamp wore sent forward.
The great dilllonlty of the Nome
oamp baa beeu cold during the no
ending winter. There has been and
still is a scaroity of fuel. Tho cold ia
piercing and the problem of getting
snffioient wood to keep the cabin holders from freezing had beoome serious.
For miles east and woBt of Nome all
the wood had been gathered up before
Jannary and consumed, and the .nin
ors getting desperate wero talking of
compelling a sharing up by those who
thriftily had gathered a store of wood
when it was available for the purpose
of ground thawing.
Stealing from the piles having
grown common, it had become the
praotioa, even before Mr. Dam started
out, for the wood owners to mount
guard day nnd night, rifle in hand,
over their property. The current price
of beach wood on Jannary 20 waa $-10
and S50 a cord, of a most inferior quality, while coal waa quoted at from.
|125 to $150 per ton. There is a fortune in it for the first steamer tbat
lands fuel in this camp this spring.
Good reports continue to reaoh

Loudon, April 21.���In England
there is only one topio of conservation,
and that is Lord RobertB' Spion Kop
censures and the possible results.
Even the piospect of an advance
against Pretoria fails to distract pubic interest from the absorbing sonsa-
tion of the hour. Tho weekliea teem
with commeul that defies a cabled ayn-
oposis. While there are expressions of
opinion rgarding the advisability of
the publication of tho report at the
persont movoinont, the Cabinet itself
appears scarcely decided what course
to pursue. Pnblic opinion is pretty
clearly defined and is unanimous in demanding the recall of Generals Buller
and Warren. It is probable the Government hopes that General Bnllor
will apply for his own recall, bnt this
seems unlikely to happen, aud now tho
conntry waits for the action that all
sections of the press declare most follow the extraordinary publication of
Lord Roberts' strictures.
A ouiious feature is that Lord Roberts, apparently, is not empowered to
deal with Geueral Buller or General
Warren, both having been appointed
by the Government, and beyond reporting, Lord Roberts is unable to tako
action. Yet for six weeks after receiving Lord Roberts' roports the Mar-
qnis of Landsowne, Secretary of State
for War, left the question ope.i, and
now, for somo mysterious reason, has
taken tho public iuto bis confidence.
Hence Lord Roberts is initially freed
from all blame and has increased popularity by being brave enough to ex-
i'osi�� tho weuk spots.

RELIGIOUS   DISSIPATION.
Jill. MARTIN'S  RAILWAY.
When addressing tho ilectors of Nol-
hiu n3xt Monday night, wo hope Mr.
Maitin will not{be as vnijno as bo has
Deen in other places in dealing with
his proposition to build a Coast-Koote-
nav railway. A Piemier who decides
to adopt the policy of Coveninient
ownership and control of railways,and
win- baa planned in his mind the immediate construction of some particular
one, should bc_able to satisfy the public that lie has the ways and menus
well iu haul",. But Mr. Martin has not
yet done this; be has not even given
the slightest evidence tbat he knows
anything abont thoso disagreeable details that ate so necessary In the building oi railways.    Instead of   reasoning
the matter Irom the bottom np, he bo-
girm at Iho top nud flounders hopeless
ly on the way down. He propouudi-
the polioy Itself, without iu tbe least
knowing how it ia to be curried out.
At one of his recent meetinga ho said
he "could not sco why ho could not
borrow money to be put into a paying
railway, when Mr. Turner conld borrow millions to give away to contractors. ' Tbat was all he could say; it
was as far as be knew. If Mr. Turner
2011 Id borrow lor contractors, ho did
not sec why ho could not borrow to
Inn iii a Government road.
Tbe mi.-i iko here is in snrposing
that Mr. Turner borrowed or could
borrow "for control tors.'' He borrowed for something more than contractors���for something; behind tho contractors, that n mil for a great deal thai
waaanbtsantial andol excellent security. Thero wns a policy at tho bottom
tbat in many places besides the Province of British Columbia has servod to
Batisfy capitalists tbat the investment
was worth tbe venture. Wo are afraid
Mr. Martin, with his very crude notions of what he is undertaking,wonld
fail lo inapiro thu money market with
Ojnfldcnce in his ability to build and
operate n railway system,as part of his
Government machinery, with reasonable proapoot of earning dividends. If
hn cannot Bee now why be could not
borrow, there is gnat reason to fenr
Hint lie would make the riiscoveiy be-
fnro liis attempt was many daya old.
A writer In The Vaccoover News-
Advertiser bas been giving Mr. Martin's railway policy some attention.
A quotation may prove instructive,
even tn tin Premier:
"Bnl lei us examine a little more
closely Into Mr, Martin's ussertiou ut
OJioniaines, In bia platform and in
several of his recent speeches, ho has
stated thn! l.o ^proposed   tn   raise   the
n  . quired for tbe construction of
his Oon nay road by loans,   He
calouluted tbat be could borrow the
money at 9 pi 1 01 nt Thii any experienced I inoier wonld tell bim is im
1 li ovon for a very moderate aoro;
mnoll more for on amount necessary
for such aii nndertaklng as is proposed. Mr, Martin eatlmatea the length
of tbe road at 800 miles, it would be
considerably longer, but wn will take
bis eetimate for the present purpose
V.i will iilfin place tbo coat of construction and equipmont at noi more than
nn avi rage of 180,000 per mile, although tbere will be considerable portion- of tin road wbioh will be exceptionally iltlii. tilt and cosily. We Will

such a latlafaotory price that the
amonut Isanod will net exceed $10,000,���
1 I. This at 4 per oent will entail an
annual cost ol {400,000. Mr. Martin
ainly assumes tbat a very small in-
oreaso in tho present rate of taxation
will provide lor this addition to the
existing dobt. Hole, again, bo shows
that bo makes an assertion without
any more knowli IgO of tbe fads than

There are open manifestations of
growing impatience with what ib call
ed the religious dissipation of these
later times. Homo life in its highest
souse, it is claimed, is fast becoming a
thing of the past. What with Epworth
Leagues,Young People's Leagues, Bands
of Hopo, Salvation Armies, Christian
Sewing Classes, Sunduy Schools, nnd
all their branches and offshoots, thero
is nothing left for the parents to do
either for the regulation of themselves
or their families. A writer in an
Eastern exchange snys: "The danger is
indeed serious, for that State is weak
indeed when home life is neglected,
and as one of an old-fashioned large
family, with sacred memories of a
goodly father acting therein as priest
of God before his children, f would
lift my voice in piotest against the
multiplying of religious meetings as a
menace to tho Christian home, in that
they shift tbe responsibility from those
upou whom God has placed it, for the
proper training of youth, and for the
development of Christian character
in nil"
This impatience will continue to
grow until the staider Christian world
breaks out into open rebellion against
it. Our educational, system lias developed into a mere machine, and cor religious life is regulated for ns by soots
aud societies who know mora about
the moans of salvation than God Him"
self. There is something unreal about
it all. It requires some moral courage
to protest ngninst it, but tho time is
coming when these excrescences of
Christian faith nud Christian nraotioe
will be recognised for what tbey aro,
aud will bo discarded us uot only unnecessary but iii their final influence
harmful.
The Sandon Paystrenk mokes the
common mistake of confounding an
election address With a party platform.
"A dozen or more different Conservative candidates, " it says, "are out in
different constituencies, aud eaoh one
has a platform of his own." Each one
has an address of nis own, ns is usual
aud proper. If in some respeotH it
diverges from tlio straight line of thn
party platform, it is a credit to the
candidate in as far as it is evidence
that be has a mind of his own njd is
uot afraid to give expression to it.
Very fow candidates can bo oxpeoted
to subscribe to ovory artiolo of a political faith.
Mr. Isaao Campbell is the ablest
and most truslod of the Liberals of
Manitoba. Whon asked a few years
ago why Mr. Martin was not taken
into tho Laurier Government he replied: "To appoint Mr. Martin would
havo been to place the Government
over a powder mine,'' Mr. Martin's
address on Monday night will necessarily he divided into sections, each
section with n Beparato head. Wo
sugest that this explanation of Mr-
Campbell's bo taken as the text for one
of tbem,
We are quite awaro that no man has
a right to breatho freely who has in-
cuned the displeasure of Mr. John
Houston, but short of living undei
difficulties there ore many rights
tiib worst offender is entitled to enjoy
with or without his consent. We
think it will bo the genernl judgment
that one of them is immunity from
such blackguardly attacks as that on
Mr. Mackintosh In Mr. Houston's paper
of yeBterday. It transgresses every
liberty the presB can claim, and the
most extreme license that public (le-
cenoy can tolerate. Mr. Mackintosh,
we are sure, would feel himself do-
graded if compelled to lodge n remonstrance with a man who conld be guilty of such ontrageona vulgarity; but in
the publio interest it becomes necessary to Inquire if something ought not to
be dene to protect it against such open
displays of a temper that is simply
brutal in its vindiotiveness. There
have been other nttacks, all without
apparent provocation, bnt tbis latest
ono is too ooarse to pass over without
protest, as a dnty to the community
that is disgraced by it.
Wo   do  not  advise any ono to go to
Mr,Martin's meeting on Monday night,
or to refrain from going. Thnt is a
maltor of personal tnsto or inclination
with whicli The Miner hns nothing to
do. It is permitted us, however, to
tnke some interest in tho manner of his
reception,aud wo therefore express the
hopo that ho will be given au orderly,
repcctful hearing. Mr. Mnrtin is a
man of considerable ability,and bis address will be worth listening to; his
position entitles him to, at least,
tho ontward manifestation of respect from a public audience, and most
of oil, tho citizens of Nelson owe it to
themselves to show courtesy to tho visiting stranger.
Mr. Smith Curtis assured n reporter
f Tho Rosslnnd Miner tbat ihi Gov-
rnment would ln,ve n candidate iu
every constituency in tho Proviuce
wilh the possible exception of Nanaimo City, which is being contested by
Mv. Ralph Smith. Ho also said that
the Government would carry a majority of the Inland seats, whereas it is
extremely doubtful if thev carry one.
Another assurance wns thnt he would
himself contest Kosslnud, in which
caso be is running an excellent chance
of not beiug a member of the next
Legislature.

tidal of 8,6-88 names now on tho list,
miioii tho largest in the history of Iho
Nelson Riding. At the time of tho
Ocurt of Revision theio wero 1.501
mines on the list. Since that timo
1,100 hnvo been added nnd Ho. strues
off by request. In the Fnrwell-Humo

year shonld bo about double. Of the
lilt) names placed upon tho list yesterdny 1111 wero placed there early in the
morning by the legislative committee
of tho Trades' Counoil, whicli has,
since Inst Monday, banded in fill ap-
plicalions. It is understood tbnt this

The meeting wns adjourned until Saturday -the 88th, when the executive
comiulttoo will report to the club what
success they hnvo had in the wny nf
subscriptions to belli the club through
the senson, ns they will need abont
$200 for various expenditures thnt will
ho inonrred in fitting cut tho club.
They hnvo alreudy received ohnllenges
from out of town clubs and aro invited to participate in the celebration nt
Knslo on the 2-Ith of Mny. A parse of

If Collector of Votes Harry Wright
rends the lnw correctly none of tbo
nnnus which have boon placed upon
the voters' list during the recent rush
enu be removed at tho Court of Revision to l.e hold on Mny 7. The law snys
that objection to namos on the list
mnst be Bled not loss thnn thirty days
prior to the duto of Iho Oonrt of Revision, and that thoso to whom objections aro made must be notified of buoIi
objection at loast twenty-one days before tho court is held. As no ohjoc-
'ions hnvo been handed to tho collector
none will now bo received for the ren-
son that but fifteen days will elapse
before the Court cf Uovision. It is a
decidedly peoulinr state of affairs. According to tho law no objection whatever oould bo mnde to any nnmes
placed upon tho list during the past
ten days. It makes the Court of Revision nothing but a fnroe. It will be
culled by the collector nnd immediately adjourned. Thus all the nnnien now
upon the list will stay tbere, whether
thoy have been placed there improperly or not. There will bo, of oourso,
the right tc chnllengo nt the polls, nnd
iu this wny only will thoso who nro
upon the list mid noi entitled to a vote
iio deprived thereof.
