No Confirmation of Rumor of
Col. Baden-Powell's
Death.
(SPECIALS TO THK MINER.)
London, April 13.���ElaudslaaRte aud
Wepener still monopolize attention.
At both places a series of actions are
occurring.
The Boer reports of the lighting on
April 10 at Elandslaagte aver that the
advanoe on the British oamp was made
with n loss of ouly three mules and
two horsis. and that the British Iobss
nirnt havo beou heavy. The bombard
meiit limti'd all day.
Nothing has been learned regarding
the rumor of Colonel Baden-Powell's
death, nor is thore anything tending
to show how long the general advance
towards Pretoria will  be delayed.
The Boer announcement of tbo re-
ooenpation of Sinithflold by the Bnrgb-
n'H. just received, is no news, as the
���amll British foroe of tbat place withdrew after the Reddersburg  affair.
A special despatch from Klands
laagte, dated yesterday, lays:
"Fighting wae renewed beyond
Elandslaagte this afternoon. Thu Boors
steadily advanced upon tha British
positions. There was a continuous
rifle flro and the Boors' big gun was
in action. Tbe British replied effect-
ively aud after two hours fighting tho
Boers were checked."
Tbe Times publishes the following
dinpatoh:
Cape Town, April II.���A Drachoen-
der cortespondent states that Goneral
Settle's column reached Uppington on
March 30. Oolonel Hughes, Canadian
M. P., and the chief of General Settle's staff, with two City Volunteer
Oyoliats, two Canadians and two
other Colonists seized Pont. The rebel
tear gnard evaouated tho town hastily
after firing one shot, nnder the impression that a large foroe was upon
them. Rev. Mr. Shroder.a member of
the Cape Legislative Assembly, wbb
captured 75 miles west of Uppington
and bronght in, Rebels are surrendering thoir arms.
Uppington, about 150 miles wost of
Kimberley, is a small town whioh .has
long been held by the rebels.
Aliwal North, April 13.���Tbe Colonial troops are still holding their own
splendidly at Wopener. Cannonading
recommenced this morning. The Boer
attack yesterday wbb not very serious.
Tho British are cnrefnliy husbanding
their ammunition aud their gnus an
making cxoellent practice. The Boers
are short of ammunition. A pntrol returning from Smithfleld reports that
"mall groups of Boers are visible.

Last Night.
New York, April 13.���Under a Pretoria dnte comes to the Herald an interesting despatch telling of tbe fighting and tbe state of foeling in tbe
Transvaal capital, aud oonveying tbe
newB that the Federals have taken
fresh courage and bave no idea uf
lnying down their arms. The dospatuh
is dated Monday of tbis week and
reads:
"Tho relief of Ladysmith and Kirn-
berloy aud General Cronje's disaster
ooming together canned the Boers to
become panic stricken and temporarily abandon Bloemfontein.
"Had Lord Roberts been able to follow up bis success the war might have
been ended now, but tbe British
reaohed Bloomfontein utterly fagged
out and recuperation was absolutely
necessary. This afforded time for tbe
Boers to recover and now tbe military
situation ia not necessarily more favorable than two months ago. The
fuiut-hearted bave been weeded from
the Reserves and tbe fighting oom-
iminders are now composed of reaolnte
men. The deoision to send the captured Boers to St. Helena makes it
certain thnt the Boers will not surrender except in the last extremity. The
iverage Burgher prefers death to exile.
"A military attache, who ia ranch
respected, thinks six months the lowest probable durance of the war. The
Boers will probably continue to fight,
even if they lose Protoria,which is unlikely to occur  for a long time yei."
New Yoik, Aprii 13.���Great Britain
has to a large extent stopped buying
foodstuffs for ber army in South Africa, from thiB country. Aooording to a
local steamship agent, shipments to
Sooth Afrioa are now confined almost
exclusively to hay, oats and mules,
with au occasionally larger order for
canned goods. Said one of them today: "The War Department found
(hat they could get oorn and meat6
quicker and oheaper from Australia,
and sinoe then the shipments have
boen dropping off.''
Policy in Regard to the Exclusion of Aliens at
Atlin.
Provincial Gazette Announces
a Number of New
Appointments.
MIMIO  WAR.
(SPECIALS TO TUB MINER.)
Viotoria, B. C, April 13.���An important statement of policy was made
today by Hon. Smith Curtis, Minister
cf Mines, in regard to the exclusion of
aliens from the plaoor fluids of Atlin.
Briefly it is to the effect that American oompauiea, which incorporate under the laws of the Province, will be
granted free miners' licences. ThiB,
of course, applius only to companies,
us the Government is powerless to
grant free miners' licenses to individuals until the Placer Mining Aot iB
amended by the Legislature.
Speaking this morning on the new
policy, Mr. Curtis said it was ���not a
general concensus of opinion that the
exclusion of foieign capital from the
Atlin region was detrimental to that
district and that, in consequenoe, tbe
Martin Government hnd deoided to
grant those orders in every reasonable
case, so tbat, if Americans wish to
invest in Atlin, all that is now necessary for them to do is to form a oompany nnder the Provincial laws and
apply for an order in council, whicb
will enable them to get a free miner's
certificate,
Incorporation takes little time and
there need therefore be little delay in
getting the free miner's license where
ibe proper steps are taken. Should
ibis change of polioy lead to the tbe
incorporation of a.number of companies, quite a revenue would be derived
by the Provinco from incorporations
and license fees.
Tonight the Promier and Minister of
Mines will open the campaign at
Snenlohton and tomorrow evening
they will go to Metohosin. At the
beginning of tho week they will commence the campaign proper and will
prosecute it vigorously until tbe oon
elusion of the fight.
II oi. Smith Curtis states this morning that, unlosB his plans obange, be
would seek a sent in Rossland. A stiff
light may therefore be expected in tbat
constituency, as Charles H. Mackintosh has been selected to bear the Conservative lance.
Aliwal North, April 13.���News from
�� Boer souroe at Woponer, officially
oommunioatod, says that four Boer
gnus have been disabled and four commandants killed or wounded. Ou
Thursday night tho British made h
sortie, capturing a Boer gun and tnk-
Ing some prisoners.
Bloemofntein, Apiil 11.���According
to information received here, the Boer
activity eastward of the railroad, and
in proximity to the border is largely
dne to the faot tbat Presiuents Kiuger
and 8teyn bave found tbey are unable
to keep their foroea together if Inactive, the Burghers declaring thoy are
unwilling to remain wth their oom-
inandets unless actively employed.
They are convinced the British game
'���' a waiting game. It is believed the
Boer commanders originally designed to oblige Lord Roberts to woaken
his fnroea at Bloemfontein in order to
protect the railroad. Then the Boers
wonld have attempted lo recapture Ihe
eapital. The Bnrgbers are evident lv
ignorant of the enormous (oroes L>rd
Roberts has at his disposal.
Even That Sometimes Has Its Casualties AIbo.
New York, April 13.���James H.
Whito, general manager ol a kiueto-
soopo company, and Wm. MoCarthy,
weie yesterday engaged in taking n
picture of tbe "Battle of Bpion Kop,"
wbich they had arranged on the rocky
slopo of tho second Orange Mountain,
at Oiungn Nek, when they were seriously hurt by the explosion of a oan-
non. More than 300 men had beon
hired, half of the nnmber iu Boer costume being plaoed at the top of the
rooky slope, while the others, in Biit-
ish uniforms, prepared to storm the
kopje. A onunon was added to increase tho picture effect. Why It exploded befora the kinetosoope and the
storming started is not olear.
Victoria, B. 0., April 13.���Steamer
Willis, from the Went Coast, brings
news of the finding ot a ship's boat
near Cloose, containing water and
food, as If provisioned for a large party to land after the wreck of tbeir
ship. Other evidenoe tends to oonfirm
the supposition tbat tbe ill-fated ship
is tbe lumber carrier Dominion, from
Taoomn for Sydney, Australia. She

The English Stock-Holders Decide
Ro Organisation.
on
There was a brief oable from London yesterday afternoon, received at
the office of the Hall Mines, announcing that a meeting of shareholders just
held had decided on reorganization, on
the basis of a fresh assessment of five
Bbl I lings per share. Tbat was all. It
is permisssble to infer, however, tbat
the work of reorganization will proceed at onoe, and tbat soon the enterprises of the company, so valuable
to Nelaon, will once more be iu full
operation. What changes will be involved in tbe staff bere, if any, mnst
of oourae bo mere matter of conjecture; bnt it ia safe to Bay that the
citizens of Nelaon will hope sincerely
that tbey will be the fewest possible
consistent witb the company's future
polioy. The Hall Mines icdustriea and
the Hall Mines [eople are alike held
iu high appreciation in this city.

Loudon, April 18.-4:05 a. in. ���Lord
Roberts, whon wiring the Princo of
Wales at Copenhagen congratulations
upon bis escape from assasinatinn, added two or three hopeful sentences
portending an eaily advance with
effeciive combinations. Assurance
exists among military men thnt Lord
Roberts ia employing his grent army
effectively aud that the Boors' commandos are likely to be enmeshed.
A detail of news here and there
hBVe reached Englnnd tonight over
comparatively idle onbloB, but th��y do
not illuminate tbe situation. The
Colonials at Wepeuer still hold off the
Boers. Lord Methnen has worked
eastward until ho is within 80 miles
of Kroonstadt. Boera could have gone
around Ladysmith and havo appeared
at Dewdrop and other places iu General Buller's flanks nnd rear. The
officers of Buller's irregulnr horse estimate Ihe Boers in Natnl at 18,000, but
these numbers are probably in exoess,
10,000 boing regarded here ob the outside number. After General Hart's
brigade leaves bim General Bnllor will
have olose upon 85,000 men. It is
generally assumed that this brigndo ia
goiug to join Lord Roberts,but its destination is unknown.
The Boer note to Portugal regarding
the use by the British of tho Biera
route for the transportation of traops
to Rhodesia may, if the Boers act
against Portugal, load Great Britain to
land troops at Lorenzo Mnrquez. This
possibility has been seriously disrussed
and is referred to at longth in the
morning papers todny.

Minister of Foreign Affaira has replied

There was a Mr. McGeer at tho
Rump Convention who made a speech,
a great portion nf whicb was devoted
to tbe defence of Mr. Ryder. He resented the indignity which he supposed was pnt upon tlmt gentleman In
describing his occupation as thut of a
pedlar. Mr. Cecil Rhodes, said tbis
extraordinary person, began life as a
pedlai, and so did oilier ntou who
afterward rose to eniinen.'c. And then
namo this burst: '"I sny tbere is not
n solitary man on this continent who
ought not to Ie proud of the fnct tbat
he has beeu able lo improve his position.'' Bnt the mnn has not improved
his position; it was Mr. Mnrtin who
improved it,and it came about by accident. A man may be sain to improve
his position when, through bis own
abilities and achievements, he compels
recognition. Mr. Ryder did not do
this, for until Mr. Martin stumbled on
him no one had evjr heard of bim.
And be was not chosen beonnsa of bis
abilities and achievements, but because of Mr. Martin's desperate necessities. The man was pitchforked
into greatness, ns much to his own
surprise, no doubt, us to that of a
eiimimiiiitv who had not the slightest
previons knowledge that the geutle-
man wns in exis'euco.

CREDIT-WHERE   DUE.
"The labor trouble in the Kootenays
has at Inst been satisfactorily settled,"
says The Kamloops Sentinel. "To Mr.
Ralph Smith, M. P. P., of Nanaimo,
is due in a very large measure the
credit of bringing about the settlement. " It seems so hard to be lair iu
politics. Tbe Sentinel is not entirely
a bad sort, but In such a simple matter
as the Kootenay labor trouble it care
fullv refrains from telling tbe whole
truth, bncnuBO if it did it would be
obliged to give credit to political nn
friends. Rather than do that it oon
cents the greater part of the truth ; it
can be laid, indeed, tbat it roisrepre
sonts the whole nf it.
Mr. Ralph Smith hnd little to do
with the settlement of the labor trou
ble in the Kootenays. Tbe lirst aud
most important step towards tbe ao
ooinplisbment of that good work was
takeu by tbe miners and mine owners
of the Slocan at Sandon. After pro-
prolonged negotiations, carried on between themselves and in a spirit creditable to both sides, they agreed on
conditions, and the men went back to
work. It was their own arrangement,
brought about among themselves and
without aid or suggestion from any
outside source. This Sandon settlement
v. i- the breaking of the ice. The next
to tnke action were the mmere nnd
mine owners of Nolson. They, too,
axreed among themselves. So far as
Mr. Ralph Smith having bad anything
to do with it, he did not oven know
that concessions on either side were
being considered. Neither members of
tin Legislature nor Government Commissioners were consulted, or had any
knowledge of what was taking place.
The principal credit, as the men themselves will admit, is due to the mine
owners. They took the whole matter
into thuir seriouB consideration, and
After a careful study of the situation
in all its aspects and out of legard for
tbe gonoral public interest, they ro-
solved to offer terms so liberal that tbe
men conld have no excuse for rejecting
tbem. If Mr. Ralph Smith had been
in the moon, he could not hnve had
less influence in bringng nbout this
settlement.
With ihe Slocan and Nelson lending
the way, thn rest was bound to follow.
Trouble -till prevailed at Rossland,
however, nnd to make some oapital for
himself, as he intended beooming a
oandidate in that oonstitnency, Mr.
Smith Cnrtis visited tho oity and
proffered his good offices. Mr. Ralph
Smith was invited to join him, which
ho did. Good progress bad already
been made townrds a settlement, bnt
theso gentlemen were in at tho death.
Mr. Cnrtis has since been claiming all
the credit for himself nud the Government. The Sentinel, as we see, claims
the principal share of it for Mr.Smith,
and says nothing of Mr Curtis. Tbe
Sentinel does not like Mr. Martin nnd
opposes his Government; thnt will explain its silence in respeot to Mr.
Cnrtis. Mr. Smith nnd The Sentinel
nre adherents of the Cotton party,
which will explain the praises of Mr.
Smith. Mr. Maokintoah and Mr. Daly,
however, took quite aa influential a
part in the negotiations as the gentlemen named; and a more nsefnl  pait,

As lecently as March ailrd Mr.Chamberlain, for tbe Ininerial Government,
protested agninst the Japanese legislation at Victoria, in the session of last
year, in a dispatch to the uttawa Government. He said : "Her Majesty's
Government mu^h regrets to find tbe
Government and Legislature of British
Columbia adopt a courso regarded as
offensive by a friendly Power.and they
hope that your Ministers will be able
to arrange for the cancellation of the
objectionable provisions, nndthe substitution of a measure whicb, while it
will seoure the desired exclusion of undesirable immigrants, will obtain that
remit by means of some such general
test as tbat provided by the Natal Immigration Aot. In any case Her Majesty's Government strongly doprecatas
tbe passing of exceptional legislation
affecting Japanese already in the
Province." This is the legislation
that Mr. Martin says ho will have re-
enacted if given a majority in the
next Legislature. That gentleman is
not deterred by such trilling considerations as Federal or Imperial interests.

Mr. Boobe has explained why ho wns
taaeu iuto the Government. We quote
his own words, aa reported in Mr.
Martin's only orgnu, The Vancouver
World: "Mr. Mattiu seemed to bu of
the opinion that aa I bad taken an act-
ivo interest in the Local nnd Central
Institute, and had been nn exhibitor, I
was tho man he wanted." Anybody
oan tnke an interest in a Farmers
Institute, but everybody cannot be nn
exhibitor. It must have beon because
he was an exhibitor that he wns chosen. It is nu In r a novel qnnliofiation,
and opens upunlimitel possibilities.
But bow does it come thnt tbis gen-
Neman who wnB selected because of
his bucolio tastes and acquirements
was mado Provincial Secretary, while
tho portfolio of Agriculture wns given
to the pedlar Ryder?
Tbe experienoe of Canadian Legislatures has beeu that "Independent"
candidates aro men who seek tho election in order thnt they may put themselves up or sale to the highest bidder.

Because a Watch has
run for years is no indication that it does not
need cleaning. Many a
watch is ruined by being let run too long without it. The oil becomes
dry and invariably the
little machine becomes

a watch throughout if
necessary. First-class
