Accounts of the Sanguinary Battle Fought
at Modder River.
BOERS SAID TO BE IN FULL RETREAT
Reported to Be Retreating on Bloemfontein- -Twenty-Two
British Guns Fired Four Thousand Four Hundred
Rounds- Boers Dead and Dying.
London, Dec. 5.-4 :6l> a. ni ���There
i.s little further news from the Heat of
war. Even the latest accounts of the
battle at Modder River fail to give an
intelligent idea of what happened.
There is n feoliug of disappointment
nud a continuing anxiety respecting
General Lord Methuen.
The Times snys editorially :
"The battle afforded splendid proof
cf the unsurpassed qualities of the
British soldier, lint while victories
wen solely by the exercise of these
qualities, arejudeed magnificent, thoy
are not wnr. They illl us with pride,
bnt with pride not unmingled with
regret at the persistent perversity of
oirnumstanoes, which apparently prevents us obtaining equal or greater
results by processes savoring a little of
that military science of which we

gcrs of Commander Dutuit's foroe.
An Associated Press dispatch from
Dnrban snys that persons arriving
iheie from Pretoria assert that, the
Boers are full of confidence and are
well prepared for a six inc th's seige
of Pretoria.
Patriotic demontsratlous in the theaters and music halls of Loudon con-
tinv.e unabated. There was n remarkable scene at the Empire last evening
\ rin Mrs. Brown-Potter recited a
poem called "Ordered to tbe Front,"
with soldiers and sailors grouped
around. On each side of Mrs. Potior
stood a sailor, ono carrying the British
nnd the other the American flag.
When the curtnin fell and rose again
to an encore, she tied the two flags
together amid loud cheers, the entire
andienee rising and singing "God
Have the Queen." Lord Rothschild
and a number of other prominent men
were in the house.
London, Dec. 0. ���Mr. Julian Ralph,
describing in the Daily Mail Ibis
morning the battle at Modder River
says:
"I can tostify tbat the British never
on-'e saw the enomy, yet they were not
utile to raise hand or foot without boing riddled. Despite all this, however,
the day belonged to the artillery. The
infantry never advanced two pnees
during the day of hell. The shells of
our twenty guns wore accurutely placed in the enemy's trenobes and broke
the heart of the Boers, for after dark,
they all retreated.
munition, and thoir   guns   were   well
and smartly handled.
'Owing to tne bend in the river on
the right, tho Beors had an opportunity of cross-firing ou the British attack. A Boer Hotclikiss was directed
with marvellous accuracy against a
Britisli Maxim, killing the sergeant
in charge, wounding another oliicer and
disabling the gun. This occurred
quite at the beginning of the engagement. Whenever the Boer fire was
silenced in oue direction, it was immediately      reopened     in      another.
"Owing to the terrific firo nobody
on the plain was ont of range. Stretcher hearers found it impossible to go
forward in the few cases they were
called upon to atteud, and the wounded were compelled, if possible, to
crawl out of the lines.
"Rn quarter seems to have been
given on either side! The British bb-
soil lhat amid the bullets the ambulance wagons displaved the:r Hags
prominently to no advantage. These
were repeatedly driven back and compelled to take refuge out of sight.
"It is alleged that the Boeis used
dnin-duiu bullets i.nd made special
targets of the horses.ou the plain in
the hope of hitting the riders. While
tho Argyle Highlanders weie pushing
tioross the river they were fired upon
from a house and several fell. Thereupon the Highlanders stormed the
house and although the Boers hoisted
a white flag, no attention was paid
to it, and all the Boers wero shot.
"It is repotted thnt General Cronje,
with his contingent, retreated towards
Laugeuberg at 4 o' 'clock in the afternoon. Others followed in the direction of Jacolipdnle aim the main body
of the Boers retired with the guns
about 8 o'clock in the evening.
"On the following morning at daybreak tbe British fired a few shells
into tho village. Getting no response,
a patrol of cavalry crossed the rher
and found tho enemy's oamp deserted.
Dead Boers and many who were dying, were to be seen everywhere in the
entrenchments as well as numerous
new graves. Several buildings were
iu smoking ruius. Some of the Boer
prisoners sny that General Cronje was
in supreme command. He had to
whip his men to prevent them from
deserting and despite this, many threw
down their rides aud lied."
ANOTHER ACCOUNT.
London, Deo. O.-The correspondent of the Associated Press with Lord
Methuen's column, telegraphing from
Modder River last Thursday, says:
"Tho Waterloo of the campaign has
been fought aud won. The battle wan
conducted with unprecedented stubbornness on both sides. Thero was one
continuous roar like the explosion of
countless firecrackers. There was no
flinching on eithor pide nnd not a moment's pause.
Por five hours the Britisli batteries
poured tons of shrapnel, grapi, an l
ehells into tho Boor positions. Lord
Methuen had 22 guns, and caoh fired
mi average of 200 rounds. The Boers
had an almost equal number of (?������.
which, it is reported, were mostly
served by Frenoh and German nrtil-
loryistB.
"It is helieved that tho Boers had
occupied the position seven weeks before and had spent the interval in
fortifying it, nud rendering it, as they
considered, Impregnable. They did
not-cm to fear   to   expend their am-
IN FULL RETREAT.
Loudon, Dec. fl,���Tho special correspondent of the Daily News with
General Methuen telegraphing from
Modder River on the day nfler the
battle says: "I hear that the Boers
aie in full retreat to Bloemfontein."
London, Dec. 6.���The Times has
the following from Freie camp, dated
Wednesday, Nov. 80: "The Boers'
camp at Cnleuso, is visible from a
point near Ohioveley. It is a strong
position aud difficult for a direct front
attack. "
London, Dec. 0. ��� The Capetown correspondent of the Standard says: "The
Cape Government intends at an eaily
date to send ono nf the Ministers to
England to urge upon tho Imperial
Government the acceptance of the
Oape Cabinet's viow regarding the
final settlement after the war."
Capetown, Deo. 5 -The Capo Times
has the following from Mafeking:
"General Cronje with 100 wngous and
a large body nf Boers has left his late
lunger, prueticully raising the siege,
although desultory firing can bo
heard."

Capetown, Dec. 4.-���The British
transport Hurona, from New Orleans.
Nov. 8, has arrived here. The transport Canning from London. Nov. 12,
hns also arrived here with the first battery of howitzers.
Loudon, Dee. 1. ���A local farmer arrested hy the Boers and released November 24, has arrived at Esteouit.
He says General Joubert personally
commands the Coleuso forces. A letter
from au officer at Ladysmith, reveals a
novel feature of the modem battle.
The writer says that at lhe buttle oi
Reitfontein, "several Indies airived on
bicycles. Of course they kept at a distance, but a shell pitched close to them
caused them to pedal off to a safei position. "
A Dublin correspondent" declares
that owing to startliug information
as to the existence of a dynamite conspiracy in order to quicken tlio flow of
Boei subscriptions, the executive has
decided to double the gua'd at all the
military barracks in the district.
The afternoon newspapers welcome
the appointment of Mr. Adclbort V.
Hay as United States Consul at Pretoria. The St. James Gazette says:
"The appointment of Mr, Hay, is one
of those small but significantly important sigus by which the impartial
observer cau test the sincerely good
feeling between ourscvles and tbe
United States.'"
MONEY COULD   NOT DO IT.
American   Millionaire   Failed   in His
Effort to Get to the Front.
London, Deo. 4.���Mr. J. J. Van
Allen, the American millionaire, has
had an unsuccessful experience, it
seems, in attempting to render aid to
the British wounded in South Africa.
He first offered the War Office an
ambulance, fully equipped to the extent of -110,1100, to be officered and
manned by the English army, ou condition that ho be allowed to accompany
it to the front. 'J he War Office replied
asking in what capacity he would go,
and this produced au offer fiom Mr.
Van Allen to go in any capacity, however modest. The War Office was
compelled to decline. Mr. Van Allen
then offered the ambulance to the
Maine hospital sihp committee. The
latter finding the ambulance adapted
to land uses only, consulted with the
War Office, and eventually informed
Mr. Van Alleu that the committee
would be glad to take In in to South
Aflioa as a guest, hut that, on arrival
at Capetown, it would ho necessary
to turn him and the ambulance over to
the army, in which event the two
would become a section, possibly having to remain in Capetown. Mr. Van
Allen refused to become a mere hospital section, and withdrew bis offer.
" His mam object, it is believed, was
to get, to the front and it is thought he
had no special desire to do hospital
work, except on that condition.
An unconfirmed report is in circulation that he may make a similar offer
to the Boers.
COMPANY    PROMOTING.
Mr. Justice Wright Would Change
the Lnw on the Subject.
London, Dec. 4. ���At the conclusion
today nf the investigation into tho
concern with which Lord Mayor Newton was said to have been unfavorably
mi Ted up. Mr. Justice Wright said he
had no judgment to give. He added
that thn investigation wns solely to enable the official receiver of the company to take proceedings if he so desired. It was due to Lord Mayor Now-
ton, he declined, to say that he had
successfully resisted the attempt of
Promoter Mendel to approp'' into ��2H, ���
000 for his own purposes. Such articles of association, however, according
to tho Justice, constituted nothing
short of a scandal, and it was highly
desirable, in his opinion, that the law
should limit the powers conferred
thereby which at present placed the
public al the mercy of promotJrs,
cor.    The Culdoou was leaking but did
not require assistance.
ANO 1,0 ITALIAN     CONFERENCE.
Merely a Mutter of Boundary Limitations���No Question of An Alliance.
Rome, Dec. l.���The conference here
between Marquis Viscunti Venosta
and Commissioner Martini, the British Ambassador Sir Philip Oniric, and
Mr. James Rennell Rodd, the British
Consul General in Egypt, who was
special euvoy to hina Menelik, of
Abyssinia, in 181)7. wns solely concerned with the delimitation of the
frontier of Erythrea and the Soudan,
and tlie details of frontier arrangements affection intercourse between
the two territories. It was the presence in Italy cf Commissioner Martini, who is Governor ot Erj threa,
which suggested the expedieucy of
Mr. Rodd's presence in order to reply
to and verbally arrange matters.
The Associated Press is officially informed that Emperor William of Germany was ueither consulted nor interested in the arrangement which was
purely one of boniularies upon which
Italy, more as a matter of courtesy
than anything elso, was consulted.
No element of offensive or defensive
alliance was considered and the reports to that effect, published iu the
United States, are officiality characterized as absolutely untrue.

CHOATE ON CHAMBERLAIN.
His Sueech Must Not Bo Taken to
Confirm the Colonial Beoretary's.
London, Doc. 4.���The Associated
Press is in a posiliou to say that Joseph Choate, United States Ambassador, was not only unaware of tho tenor
of the speech delivered by Mr. Chamberlain at Leicester, ou November 80,
when he was himself speaking at the
American Thanksgiving banquet in
Loudon, but was also iguorant of the
fact that the Secretary of the Colonies
was makiug  a speech the same dny.
Mr. Choate repudiates emphatically
any tendency to confirm the Colonial
Secretary's remarks, maintaining that
he only reiterated on behalf of the
United States expressions of friendship. He does net believe there is any
necessitv of withdrawing anything he
snid, and while refusing to express an
opinion on Mr. Chamberlain's speech,
Mr. Choate drew attention to his own
speech, which included the statement
that ho believed tho watchword of the
United Stutes was still "No entangling alliances."

AN ALARMING PROSPECT.
The last of about eight bundled prisoners have been liberated from thn bull
pen at Wardner. They had been im-
prisoned.because of their connection
���with the Coeur rPAlone riots, marked
by the crimes of murder and arson. A
majority of the married prisoners returned to their former abodes, because
of their families, but tho unmarried
ones scattered. A Wardner dispatch
to ihe .Spokesman-Review says that
niftuy of them went to British Columbia.
We did not require this information
to assure ourselves that our population
had been contaminated by an influx of
these men, but the direct evidence of
this dispatch will not be amiss. The
labor troubles in this Province began
with tbe visit of a paid, professional
agitator from an American mining
camp. They hnve been prolonged and
aggravated by these liberated prisoners of Wardner, who were either murderers and fire bugs themselves or who
���were arrested and confined because of
their sympathy with them. These
arc the men who are doing their utmost to stir up strife between capital
and labor in British Colnmbia. The
respectable miners of ;.the Province
cannot afford to havo any sort of association with men whose hands are thus
stained with crime, and if they will
take time to reflect they will see this
for themselves. Citizens who arc not
miners, whether thoughtlessly or not,
are enemies to the public welfare wlio
give encouragement to the movement
iu which these agitators are engaged.
Their purpose is to introduce into
Britisli Columbia the spirit of lawlessness and tyranny that was only suppressed in Idaho by an overpowering
military demonstration. Tbat spirit
they would make supreme here, and
if successful it needs not the gift ol a
prophet to foretell tho disastrous consequences that would follow. Mining
development would receive a blow
from whioh it would not recover in a
generation. That is the situation we
are invited to contemplate by these
late ocoupants of the Warduer bull
pen. 	
cerned   they   will   do    everything   '"
their power to encourage the development of one of the richest sections of
rhe Province. They will find the residents ready to reciprocate thoir good
intentions. East and West, Coast and
Interior will be bound more closely
together, and a united Province will
work out that glorious destiny that is
iu storo for British Columbia."
This is interesting to Nolson. We
hero have been looking forward to tho
time in the near future when the absolute commercial supremacy of Nelson,
throughout tbe whole of Southern British Columbia, shall be established and
acknowledged . Wo have that expectation yet. With fair treatment thero
is no reason to fear that it will not he
realised. A large, central city is
bound to grow up in the Interior as a
natural product of its development,
and circumstances point to Nelson as
the favored spot. Unless there shall
be discrimination in favor of the Coast
cities, the business men of Nelson cau
hold the advantages which Nature
has given them. Is the extension into
the Bonnoaiy country a step towards
such discrimination?
Canadians take a deep interest in
tho Transvaal war, and a special inter-
st in the troops they have sent to take
part in it, They waited anxiously to
hoar of their arrival, and next of the
disposition the General would make of
them. On Sunday Tbo Spokesman-
Review published among its Associated Press dispatches the announcement that they, with other reinforcements, hud been pushed forward to the
neighborhood of Orange River to protect Methuen's line of communication,
and this movement waa known in Ottawa in time to enable a correspondent
to send a special based on it for publication in The Rossland Miner of the
same day. But the compiler of the dispatches prepared for the newspapers
of Kootenav did not think it worth
while to make any mention of the Cauadiau troops.
A Sandon paper that weeps sympathetic tears for the cause that filled
the Wardner bull pen discourses on
"low wages and immorality," trying
to make the point that the one is the
consequence of the other, It says iu
effect thnt the mine owners should pay
the largest wage in order to preserve
the morality of the miners. It also
says in effect���neither is intended,
but it is impossible to escape the position���that the miners require to be
bribed if they are to continue moral.
We do not know anything that could
he more insulting, and since when,
pray, have tbe mine owners been responsible for the morality of others? If
newspapers that advance this singular
theory havo not taken leave of their
senses, it is because they wore never

INTO THE BOUNDARY COUNTRY.
A somewhat notable event will be
the Railway excursion of Thursday
next. It will celebrate the opening
of tbe Canadian Pacific extension into
the Boundary country, a region that
promises to be 0110 of the richest in a
Province that is rich beyond calculation. It marks another stop in the
piogress of development; that is going
on, We are apt to get impatient at
times, and declare that transportation
facilities are not provided as fast as
required, Perhaps not as fast as tho
individual person may think who hns
interests depending on thom, but if
we put aside onr selfish consideiatinns
for a. moment we sbull hnvo to ac
knowledge that wonderful strides are
being made in the no easy task of
opening up this mountainous country.
No more convincing evidence of this
Is required than the single event which
is to have its colehration this week in
the excursion which tbeJRailwuy Company is tendering to representative
business men of tbe Province.
Wo observe that The Boundary Creek
Times, published at Greenwood,associates the occasion, to the exclusion of
everything else, with the prospect of
establishing permanent business connections with tho Coast. We quote a
portion of its leuding article on the
subject:
"Victoria and Vancouver can materially assist in the development of
the wonderful mineral resources of the
Boundary Creek country. The Boundary
Creek country can increase tho trade of
the Coast cities. Today Victoria money-
is mildewing in Victoria banks,
while Boundary money goes to the
wholesaler of Toronto and Montreal.
There is no good reason why Victoria
capitalists should not invest their
money in Boundary Creek, and no
better reason why Boundary Creek
merchants should uot purchase from
Const wholesalers, Trade can be fostered and cultivated. The Coast merchants who come on tbo 0. P. R. excursion will receive a hearty welcome.
Past difficulties will be forgotten.
They will ho able to see some of the
biggest mines on tho oontinoiit.
They can talk business to some of tlm
most enterprising business men in tlie
Proivnco. Tbey can satisfy themselves
that they have missed a splendid opportunity to reach ont for profitable
trade, and they can arrive at a deter-
uiinutionjliat so  far  us they are  con-
Since the outbreak of the war The
Toronto Mail nud Empire has beeu
publishing, by arrangement, the correspondence of The London Times, The
Telegraph, aud The Daily Mail. The
Times' service is also appearing in
The Chicago Tribune, which paper
recently accused The Mail and Empire
of stouliug its matter from The Times.
The truth is the Toronto paper has
the same claim to the eervloe The
Tribune has. and the accusation is a
bit 01 unsornplous bluff quite in keeping with its character.

Prelimina y Steps Towartk Making Nelson

���     Establishing a High School.
The usuul fortnightly meeting of
the Oity Council was held yesterday
evening, Mayor Neelnnrla presiding.
There were ultra present, Aid. Fletcher,
Peer, Kirkratriclc and Hillyer.
The Fi limine Committee reoominend.
ed the payment of accounts amounting
to $8,084.76.
A letter was read from the manager
of the Punk of Montreal statins thut
hu held the note for overdraft for ��15,-
000.
Aid. Hillyer asked wh.it interest

The Mayor replied that it would he
six per cent. There was uo overdiaft
nt piesent.
The resolution of the Board of Sohool
Trustees was read, asking iheOounc.il
to apply to tlio Government to make
Nelson a separate sobod district, and
ulso to deed a block for high sohool
purposes.
Aid. Hillyer said it would lie necessary tn have a bill passed in the local
Legislature to make Nelson a separate
school district He thought that Nelson should be a separate school district
and that a high school should be established here for tho Kootenays. He
suggested that the Government be
asked to vote $10,000 for school purposes. Aid. Peer suggested that a
committee of tbe Council he appointed to meet the Board oi: School Trustees, and with the City Soli litor, draft
thu necessary application.
The suggestion wus adopted and
Aid. Fletcher. Hillyer and Peer appointed as the committee. {The committee will meet at 10:111) this morning at the City Hull, when it is expected the members of the school board
w ill bo present.
A letter was read from the Nelson
Tramway Co., nskiug that the company be given due notice of the intention of the City to alter street grades,
excavate for sewers, waterworks nnd
gus mains, etc., on the streets over
wliich the tramway runs.
Mr. Halifax Hall appeared on behalf
of the company and supported lhe
application.
After'some discussion it ��vas decided
to instruct the City Engineer to prepare rules and regulations for the
guidance of plumbers and others who
are liable to excavate on the streets
used by the Tramway Oo,
A letter was read from Mrs. Ingram
asking that a sidewalk be placed at
her house from coiner of limes Sttnet.
Referred _ to Board of Works, as was
also a similar application from Mr.
0. H. Leicester a iking that llie sower
from Stanley nnd Mill Streets be continued across Cedar,
It was agreed to lay a crossing on
Stanley Street at the intersection of
Silica.
Aid. Fletcher suggested that slats-
be laid across the steeper of the sidewalks. He pointed ont that some of
these sidewalks were dangerously
steep, and unsafe during the winter.
Referred to the City Engineer.
A letter was lead from ReistBrer ic
Co., asking that the culvert opposite
their brewery he repaired. Referred
to City Engineer.
R. .1. Steele reported having collected $8,001! road tax
A letter was read from Mrs. Stocks,
Secretary of tho Local Council of Women, asking the Council to confer with
the society with the object of forming
Hrinie basis for the distribution of local
charity, Aid. Fletcher, Beer aud Hil-
yer were appointed.
sv. Rutherford wrote compuiniiig of
a water eoiirmi which was destroying
111* property and asking that thn
stream be dfverted, The matter was
i of erred to tlm Oity Engineer,
On the motion of Aid. Fletcher the
salary cf the Chief of Police wns raised from #(10 to $100 per month, Hy-
law No n.t, regul iting the numbering
of houses within the City limits come
up for its final reading. It provides
that thirty days notice be given to
householders to hnvo the prescribed
numbers placod, nnd should they fail
to do so, a fine of fS bo imposed.
. Aid. Fletcher brought, up the question of tho City whaif, stating thut he
believed the City wn.i incurring a
great risk hy leaving the wharf as it
is. He had spoken to tho City Solicitor ou tho subject, ami that gentleman
had no doubt on his mind that the
Oity would be responsible should any
accideut, occur tbete. He thought thnt
they should raise at least fS.000 and
put tho whurf in good order This
wonld not cost the Oity more thnn
#81-1 a year.
Aid. Beer favored the proposition.
He also suggested that 15,000 be raised to fully equip tho fire department
and provide a first chiRS lire alarm and
chemical eiikiiie.
Aid. Kirkpatrick���Wait till we hear
what the people will do wilh the bylaws tomorrow. Some of them are beginning to ask where this li going to
ond. It was Anally deoided m ask
tho City Engineer   to   prepare a   plan
aud estimate of cost tor widening the
wharf by ten   feet,   replauking same,
aud raising the giade,
Some tontine business having been

LOCATION CHANGED.-Owing to
the condition of lhe roads, tbe ball

instead ol "Granite Mine."
THIS DAY'S VOTING.
Waterworks, Electric Light and C. P.
R. By-Laws to Be Decided On.
Today thn voting will lake place on
tho hy-laws submitted to tbe ratepayers
to vote $!S,000 for the extension of the
waterworks system ; "S7,000 to improve
the electric light service ; (he by.law
for stopping up and closing certain
streets and alleys and empowering the
Council to convey same to the Oaniul
inn Piicilio Railway Co., and exempt
the company from taxation and also
the by-law tn grant to Thomas Madden
permission lo use a portion of the sidewalk on Ward Street for the purpose
of entry to the basement ot bis block
on baker and Waul slreets. There are
(iliil voters qualified to pronounce on
these issues���893 in the East Ward and
-71 in tbo West. It is to be hoped that
all will turn up and record a favorable
vote, as the by-laws nre very popular.
The extension of the waterworks system is an absolute necessity, and "insures a decent revenue to the Ciiy. Tbe
electric light system is at present lamentably defective, and to make it
anything like what iti should he more
money will have to be spent. - Public
opinion appears to be that iu purchasing tho electric light plant u serious mistake was marie, inasmuch as
it was at the time of purchase a very
ineffective concern, oven the ground
upon which the plant stands was not
tho property of the gentleman or company who sold it However, the deal
has heen made, and if tho purchase
money is not to be treated as a dead
loss, funds must he voted to render
the plant fairly efficient There will,
it is conceded, be little if nny objection to tbe arrangement witb the C.
P. R., which makes Nelson a divisional point iu consideration of closing
up certain streets and ali ywuys which
appear on the City map, but which
are practically useless. Somo rate-pay ���
ers raise the point, if these streets and
alleys aro deeded to the C P. R. and
that company fail to maintain Nelson
us u divisional point, will they revert
to the City. The third by-law. which
gives ex-Alderman Madden the right
to put down a (light of steps to the
cellar of his new block, can Boarely
m?et with any opposition. It is an arrangement made in every city, nnd
Nelson will not bo an exception to
the rule.    Vote early and often.

next few days a gang   of   men will 'ne
put to work on   the  giound.    Already
some 21  feet  of   tunnelling   has been
done with considerable  surface   work.
Cross cutting is the   main item on tbe
programme at present.
An individual of the tramp persuasion was yesterday hanging about the I
house of a lady ��� known charitable
disposition who lives on the outskirts!
of the Oity. She asked what he wanted. He replied that he did not want
money or food, but that there was a
little piece of sewing he wanted to get
done, but did not know who to apply
to in the matter. Tho lady immediately offered to do the sewing, whereupon the tramp, bringing a button
out of bis pocket, said, "Would you
please sew a shirt on this button?''
During the sitting of the Supreme
Court yesterday, old Larry, a Ymir
celebrity entered the court room with
his hat; on. The registrar, and the
sheriff in turn appealed to him to remove the bead gear, but in vain. '
Then the judge issued the invitation
but without effect, and a member of
the audience took the bat from Larry's
head. This was taken as an insult,
and the Ymir man showed signs of
tight. Ho was immediately taken in
custody and brought beforo his Lordship. "Ye have ine here uow, and
what are yo going to do wid mer"
stammered the offender, "The man
is drunk. Remove him," snid Justice Mm tin, and ho was removed.
The following members of the Nelson
Board of Trade have signified their
intention nf accepting the invitation
of the C. P. R., to take a trip through
the Boundary Country in opening railway Communication there: Messrs.
Hoderick Robertson President; James
Lawrence, vice-President: H. Byers,
John Choldich, tl. K. Martin, Pleroy
diddle, A. Chapman, H. F. Kmg-
horu, P. J. Russell, and H. J. Evans.
The party from the Coast cities will
not stop off at Rossland, as originally
intended, bnt will come ou to Nelson.
On the return trip they will spend
Monday and Tuesday in Rossland. It
would be a good idea to entertain our
visitois in Nelson during their sojourn
here, and ll "smoker'1 is suggested.
An experienced mining man suggested to n Miner man yesterday "tint uu
agitation should bj startel to compel
the Government to appoint at least one
or two moro mine inspectors li r this
Province. "In Idaho," said the advo-
cite. "they have five inspictors, nud
they are kept busy, I tell you. Here
in British Columbia we have but one,
and if he worn like Sir Boyle Roaches
wonderful bird, be could not do the
work. Tint region is too big for one
man to cover effectually. The Government (ami here a cuss word was
used) take the pains to see that tbo
miuer does not injure bis health by
working too long, or strain his pockets
with surplus cash tho result of his
camings, bin the same Government
does not mind what accidents happen
owing to a lack of culinary precaution.
Why. we ought to hnve two or threo
Inspectors, and if we bad good practical men���not political tools���many a
filial accident might be icerted. I am
tired of hearing of the iillcgid ariev-
unci's of miners. They nre holding out
for 18.150 u d y of eight hours, and on
wbal tbey call union principles. The
same fellows are lln.riling Ihe labor
market���I mean unskilled labor���and
working t1 eir nine or ten hours a day
fnr a lower rate of wage than the mdi-
n.iry laborer has been accustomed to.
Scabs, indeed. If these miners were
at their own woik, the street laborers
would be gettlna better pny."

Kimberley is the place whence

ley diamond mines, Ihiiiigh only dis-
���overed   in 1807,   now   supply   118  per
cent, of tbe diamonds of commerce,
and it is estimated that ���70,000,000
in value of rough diamonds have been
taken out since 1800, and this value
is doubled by cutting, These mines are
now worked under an agreement limiting the annual output so as to meet
the annual demand, The mineral
wealth of Kimberley exceeds even thnt
of Johannesburg,

Twenty-three soldiers Jwere wounded

of the previous skirmishes and engagements.
The battle was between the main
bodies of both factions. Tbe Indians
were finally put to flight, and this explains why so many of their women
were captured, as their retreat was
made in much confusion and the women became separated from the warriors. In addition to this engagement
there wore several others of minoi importance during the week following
that date, but no information as to the
results of the latter engagements is
forthcoming.

ZELAVA UNPOPULAR.
Kingston, Jamaica., Dec.4.���Passengers by today's steamer from Niearag-
nan ports say that there is a growing
feeling of hostility toward President
Zelayo on account of his recent decree expelling Mgr. Pereira, bishop of
Nicaragua, iu reply to the letter's protest against the law passed by tbe Nic-
aragnau Congress on October 14, declaring that all donations by the people of lands, cuttle or other property to
the church should be subjeot to lhe
civil government, Although President Zelaya is very popular with the
masses, the resident's political opponents are improving the present occasion
to tiring about a revulsion of popular
feeling by taking advantage of the powerful undercurrents of olerieal influence.
