Gen.  Delarey   Takes    Him
and  Four of His
Guns.
Stock Market and Parliament
Excited at the Infor-
_    matlon.
London, March 10.���It was announced that (lenora] Lord Methuen
and four guns had been captured by
tho Hours commanded by General
Delarey.
The news oame 1 ke a thunderbolt
to Loudon. The extra editions of the
evening papers giving an account of
the disaster were eagerly bought up
and hitter remarks were passod on
tho subject of the government's declaration that the war in South Africa
was over. The news camo too late to
8ffect the business on the stock exchange, but excited curb dealings
quickly followed the closing, in which
South Arioans slumped heavily.
Tbe news caused excitement in the
niino market. Shares were offered
freely at first, but by ti o'clock the
excltemont had abated and the curb
tone hardened. The news v as received in tlie House of Commons amid
great excitement. The reading or
Lord Kitchener's telegram by the
war secretary, Mr. Broderick, was
listened to io deep silence which was
broken by loud Irish cheers. Instantly there wero cries of "Shame,
shame,'' from the government
benches. Then the Irish mem bers
seemed to think better of their outbreak aud suddenly susidecl. The subsequent eulogistic references to General Methuen were roceived with
cheer.
The text of Lord Kitchener's
oespatch announcing the capture of
Goneral Methuen is as follows:
Pretoria, Saturday, March 8.���I
greatly regret to have to send you
bad news of Methuen. IIo was moving
with 900 mounted men under Major
Paris, 800 infantry and four guns and
a pom pom from Wynburg to Lichten-
hurg and was to meet Orenfell with
1,200 mounted men at Riversfontein
today. Yesterday morning early he
was attacked by Delarey's force between Twebosch and Palinietknill.
The Rncrs charged on three sides.
Five hundred and fifty men havo
come in at Maribogs and Kraaipan.
Thoy wore pursued by tho Boers for
four miles from the scene of tho
action. They report that Methuen
and Paiis, with ihe guns, baggage,
etc., were captured by the Boers.
Methuen when last seen was a prisoner. I have no details of tho casualties and I suggest delaying publication till I can send definite news. I
think this sudden revival of activity
ou the part of Delarey is to draw off
the troops pressing Dewet.
In a second despatch dated Sunday,
Maroh 9th, Lord Kitchener says:
"Paris has come in at Kraaipan, with
the remainder of tlie men. He reports
that tlio column was moving in two
parties. One,with thc ox wagons, left
Twebosch at 3 p.m. the other with the
mule wagons, startod an hour later.
Just before dawn the Hoors attacked.
Before reinforcmonts could reach
them, tho rear guard bioke. In the
meantime a largo number of Roers
galloped upon both ilanks. Those a I
first wero checked by the Hank parties
DM the panic and stampede of tbe
mules had begun and all the mule
wagons with a terrible mixture of
mounted mon lushed past tbe ox
wagons,and efforts to check them wero
unavailing, Major Paris collected a
party of men and occupied a position
a mile in front of tho ox wagons
whioh wore then halted. Aftor a gallant but useless defense the enemy
rushed into the ox wagons and
Methuen was wounded in the thigh.
1'Mris,being surrounded,surrendered at
10 a.m. Methuen is still in the Boor
camp."
The follows the number ol casualties. The killed include Lieuts. 0.
J. Venning and T. P. W. Ncsbatn, of
the Royal Artillery, who were both
killed while serving their guns with
case shot. As Lord Kitchener announced that Major Paris had surrendered and also telegraphed that he had
reached Kraaipan with the icmaindor
vt   his   men,   it would  seem that thc
Rocis subsequently released tho major
and his companions. General Methuen
was wounded in the thigh. Three
British officers and 330 men were
killed, fivo officers and 72 men were
wounded One oulcor and :.'0'1 men are
missing. The light occurred before
dawn of Maroh 7 between Wynburg
and Lichenburg, Orange rivtr coloDy.
Tho British farce numbered 1,500 men.
The Boors captured all the British
baggage. General Methuen is retained
as a prisoner.
After many months of negotiations,
Charles T. Yerkes has concluded a
deal with the Baker street-Waterloo
ailway giving bim control of four
different underground railways. Mr.
Yerkes said that tlie four roads would
form a system in connection with tbe
Metropolitan district.

Gladstone if Alive Today Would Not
Sanction Irish Home Rule.
Glasgow, March 10.��� Lord Rosebery
spoke before a crowded meeting in St.
Andrew's hall tonight. He refeired to
the Irish demonetraton in the House
of Commons today, when the reading
of Lord Kitchener's telegram announcing the capture of Lord Methuen
was greeed by loud Irish cheeis, as a
fresh indication of the impossibility
of homo rule. Lord Rostbory said
that Mr. Gladstone himself, if he-returned from the dead, could not dare
to entrust an independent parliament
to men who openly rejoiced at a British military disaster.
REVOLUTIONISTS HOPEFUL.
General Matos Claims the Vast Major ���
ity of Venezuelans Are With Him.
(Correspondence of Associated Press)
Willemstadt, Island of Curocoa,
Feb. 17.���To the correspondent of the
Associated Press, who yesterday
boarded the revolutionary steamer
Bolivar, General Matos said: The
country is almost to a man in favor of
the revolution but these people have
neither arms nor money. I, we, for
in this work I am not alone, having
with me almost all tho chiefs of the
Liberal party, have already obtained
much. My emissaries have .'jjready
set out and within two weel(S *",e re-
molest village of Guayana will know
that the hour of revolt has arrived ;
arms will then have been distributed
aud the thousands who are waiting on
us will be ready to tako the field.
To risk lhe lile of others is a matter
of grave responsibility. We are now
sowing hut tomorrow we will reap.
The current will soon be ao strong
that it will sweep everything before
it. We shall ot admit ourselves vanquished until every chief, every man,
lies down and all the resources are
exhausted.

Peterborough, Windermere District,
B.C., March C.���There has been con-
considerable excitement in Peterborough during the past few days ovor
the Pnradise mine and Monarch
strikes. Throe feet of solid high grade
gray copper and galena has beon
struck in the 100-foot tunnel on the
Monarch, situated on the north fork
of Toby creek. Tho Monarch group
consists of throe olaims, tho Monarch.
Monitor and Majestic, owned hy
Charles D. Ellis et al, of Peterborough. This property was under
bond during tho season of 1901 lo a
New Yoik syndicate known as the
Richmond Mining Co., of New York,
represei'.Jod by Wm. Alperson, of New
York,. Tho development work was
Carried on throughout tho season
under tbe direction of J. H, Jones
with sutisnctiory rosults, but for some
unknown reasun tbo company oeasod
to operate the property on the 30th of
September and threw up the bond and
aro still in debt to the miners for
three mouths wages. Chas. D. Ellis
decided to work thc property this
winter on his own account wi'h tho
statisfactory termination as above
staled aud expects to ship ore in the
near future Considerable credit is due
Mr. EII13 for his pluck and perscr-
verance
Particulars of another rich strike at
the Paradise mine on Spring creek, a
tributary of Toby croek, Paradise
basin, reached Peterborough on tlie
afternoon of the 3rd inst, to the effect
that four feet of solid ore has been
struck in the new tunnel. This is
only one of several rich strikes that
bas been made on this property during
the past winter. Ine Paradise is
without tho least doubt one of the
most promising properties in the
Kootenay country.
Situated in tne Paradise basin are
the following groups: Paradise, Silver
Belt, Shamrock, Silver Crown, the
original locators of Said groups being
John Jeffry, John Watson, Isaac
Norlan, Tom Jones, M. H. Craik, Ben
Abel, A. Symons et al. The basin bids
lair to become ono ofjthe great mining camps of the Kootenay.
The Bunyon eroup, situated on the
base of Bunyon mountain, Goldie
creek, continues to improve with
development work now going on. The
owners, Harrison, Tayntou, Jackson,
et al, expect to commence regular
shipments this spring. The ore is high
grade copper-silver-gold. Mr. Henry
IC. Noave, mining engineer, of Victoria, B.C., (formerly of South Afrioan
Mines) states that the formation that
ore is in is "koratophyre" and identical to the noh gold bsariug rock of
New Zealand. This property was
located during tho spiing of 1809 by
William H. Harrison, formorly of
Idaho. Several prominent mining men
visited tbe property last season
among which was II. E. Neave, M.E.,
The owners intend to work the piop-
erty entirely on their own account
having already refused several tempting offers to bond or lease. Tho ore
will be hauled from tlio mine dowD
Goldie creek to Windermere lake a
distance of five miles.
It is understood that the Fort Steele
stage line will he resumod in the near
future, lt is about timo that tho mail
service for this distrct was placed on
some kind of a systematic basis, as
at present, and in fact, for the past
year or mere thc service has beeu
more or less of a regular farce. Up to
the last of December, 1901, the Fort
Steele stage arrived in Windermere
Sunday morning and the Peterborough mail was not forwarded until
the following Thursoay. The Peterborough mail lor Foit Stoolo left on
Monday afternoou three hours before
the arrival of the Golden stage, which
was of no practical use whatever. Tho
Fort Steele stage should run clear
through to Pelerboonigh in two days
from Fort Steele aud thereby with <nc
iGolden stago give two  mails a  weGk
system to the district, lt is about time
for the post otfico authorities to get a
move on. Three years ago we had a
far better system tban at present.
Just why the Windermere district has
been cut off from all cominunic.ttion
with southeast Koolooay by tbe removal from service of tho Fort Steele
stage line is simply beyond any reasonable uuderstundiug, and shows
anything but judgment on tho part of
him who is responsible therefore,as the
said system has been in operation
between 15 and Hi years.
Everything points to a very lively
season in tho Windeimcre district.
The following properties will be developed : Paiadise, Red Line, Iron
Cap, Silver King, Bunyon, Shamrock,
White Cat, Silvor Crown, Silver Belt,
Dclphino, M. T. fraction, Kootenay
Queen, B. C, Chilberry, Steele, Sunrise, Silver Thread, Virginia, Juno,
Montezuma, Mineral King, bullion,
Black Diamond, Morning Glory,
Monarch, Iron King, Iron Queen,
Diamond C, and others.
During the past month Windermere
lake has beon the scene of several
very exciting races between two crack
ice boats owned by H. E. Forster, of
Peterborough and J. E. Stoddart, of
Wiudcrmere, respectively. The
Columbia, Mr, Foisttr's boat, won the
first heat.
Peterborough will soon be known as
Wilmer, B.C.

AS A PRECAUTION.
Note to Turkish Government Regarding Miss Stono Only Preliminary.
Washington, March 10���It is again
specitically stated hero that no demand has been made upon Turkey, ln
connection with Miss Stone's case.
The action taken by Minister Leich-
man, reported from Constantinople,
was simply to consorve any rights
which might bo developed hereafter,
and his note to tho Turkish government amounted to nothing moro than
a statement that the United States
government inteuded to make a
thorough investigation ofthe incidents
connected with thc kidnapping, ond
at the conclusion of that investigation, would look for redress to the
party upon whom tho responsibility
was fixed. It may be added, tliat the
whole trend of evidence so far is very
strongly against tbe Bulgarians and
not against the Tuiks.
A SENSATIONAL RUMOR.
Story Sent Out That a Rival to the

Winnipog, March 10.���The Free
Press says tonight: Among the numbers of sensational and unfounded
stories at the expense of the Hudson's
Bay Co., tnat have recently originated in Winnipeg, is ono that was
telegraphed from Winnipeg last week

Earl ofRosebery was mw establishing
a new Hudson's Bay Co, and by the
aid of some of the trappers of the
present company wero going to rival
them. Commissioner Cbipman said
today tbat the Same denial tbat appeared a few days ago in regard o a
sensational story about Andree would
apply to the prsent story. Further
than that, he did nut mire to say
anything.

Viotoria, March 10.���Hon. E. Q,
Prior, minister of mines, in the Dunsmuir government was elected today
over E. V. Itodwuli, oppositionist, by
54 majority, tlio vote being: Prior,
1,541; Ilodwell, 1,487. Tho offioial
count will probrtbly increiso tbis
majority. It was the hottest contest in
the  history of tho city.
Serious trouble has broken out at
Fort George, E. L. Kepner, Hudson's
Bay company's manager at that point,
has arrived at Quesnelle and states
thut Indians have been endeavoring to
tako po��sessinn of the fort. One bolder
than the rest attempted to throw
Kepner out of his olliee, and defeated
in this, camo at him with axo and
threatened to kill him, and to gather
tho members of tho tribe and tako
possession of the fort. Kepner barricaded the fort, left tlie cook iu charge,
and came down to Quesnelle whence
he telegraphed to the provincial
police. Attorney-General Eberts wired
to collect specials and hasten to tho
scene.    This Kepner is doing.
Jas. Thomson, local manager of the
Hudson's Hay Co., was recently
thiough the district and says the Indians there an the most dangerous In
British Columbia. Thoy nre continually giving trouble.
Fort George is situated at tho confluence of lhe Nonhaco and the F'raser
river. it is about 10 mics noith of
Quesnelle. Tho nearest Indian
agencies are at Clinton and Ha/.clton,
both a considerable distance from
Fort George. Travelling is very difficult at this season of the year, so that
tho Indians take advantage of the
lack of supervision and give trouble
without provocation.

THROIKIU lUUTISH EYES.
AoeonntB of the warfare which the
Canadian l'acific railway company has
been waging against the Crow's Nest
Southern railway and the Crow's Nest
Vass Coal Co. have reached London.
Tbe Canadian Pacific evidently has
not as great an inlluenco with the
press there as it has with some ot the
publications in British Columbia and
elsewhere in Canada, There they are
inclinsd to treat the contest in a (air
manner. Tho following, an editorial ou the matter, under the caption
"A light for coal," appears in the
llritish Columbia ltcview ol London,
and is a clear and fair exposition of
the   controversy that is now on :
Shortly after Mr. James Hill acquired an interest iu tlie Crow's
Nest Co., a charter wa? sought to permit railway connection between his
railway; system and these mines. The
C. P. H. natuially fought this very
strenuoubly, und a newspaper agitation was worked up in the West
endeavoring to show that if tho charter were granted, H.C. mine owners
would be at the mercy ot an American
railway company. The paper warfare
was bitter and facts were but slightly
adhered to; howover, the charter was
granted.
A new agitation is now being engineered by the O.P.H. The real object
of the company is to use the government as a cuts-paw in their fight
against tbe Great Northorn railway.
When the coal company acquired its
original chaiter, the government
reserved ior itself 50,000 acres of coal
lands, which they could select under
oertain definite arrangements, and the
government Is now being urged to
promptly exercise their right and
securo what is considered a stategic
site for ooal mining on Morrissey
oruek. The object of this agitation is
quite apparent.
The C.P.R. themselves, although
their line traverses the coal measures,
are debarred from engaging io coal
mining under an agreement with the
Crow's Nest Coal Co.; but now that
Mr. Hill has acquired an interest
of these groat coal measures, the C. P.
R. see the possibility of a lucrative
freight business being taken away
from them, since as soon as the Great
Not thc rn is connected with the mines
it will carry the coal and coke on its
own system to Rossland, Nelson and
Boundary, which are at present the
largest consumers of fuel in southern
B. C. If, by this agitation, the C.P.
B can induce the government to exercise their right at Morrissev creek, a
company will be formed, friendly to
the C. P. R., to work tnese deposits
under lease from the government,
and in this way the railway could
protect themselves from the coming
competition of the G. N. R, In order
to influence public opinion.it is urged
that the interests o' the Kootenay
lines and smelters most be protected
against the monopoly cf Amerioan
capitalists, etc. It iH even suggested
that Mr. Hill will supply American
smelters with fuel at cheaper rates
that the B. C. smelters in oider to
drive the smelting inciustry into the
States. Such statements are, of
course, too foolish to be considered,
and merely show the means which the
wire pullers adopt in order to influence public opinion. The Review bat
always favored competition, but under
the existing circumstances the C.P.R.
will be able to buy coal and noke at
the mines at the same price as their
rivals, and, if tbey are prepared to reduce tho cost of haulage, there is
nothing to prevent them laying it
down at tho ll.C. smelters at a price
at whioh the G.N.II.would uot care to
compete owing to the far longer haul
on their system.
at Ferguson in tlie Lardeau country
and many of the newspapers are commenting on it. Somo claim tliat it
will revolutionize smelting, while
others, liko the Trail Creek Nows,
ridicule it and go so far as to term it
the Vulcanline smelter. It has never
been tested on the ores of the Koote.
nay and until it has demonstrated
that it can treat thorn successfully
Judgment should be withheld.
It is claimed on its behalf that it
will revolutionize smelting. The
chief improvement claimed over the
old smelters is in the draught, wbich
instead of being forced into the furnace by fans or other oostly appliances is drawn in through the bottom,
the necessary vacura being produced
by a steam jet near the foot of the
flue. A simple device foi raising or
lowering tho movable crucible regulates tbe quantity of air by enlarging
or reducing the spaco between the
two. the bottom of the furnace being
entiiely open and corresponding in
sizo and shape to the top of the oruci-
ble. Speaking in geuural teims, as
the smelting of leid oies is now conducted the ranting process necessary
for desulphurising the oro represents
a laige proportion of the cost of treatment and in the case of copper ores,
carrying much sulphnr, the roasting
ls a source of considerable expense.
It is claimed that no roasting is neces-
saiy with the Vulcan smelter, and
provided heavy sulphide ores are
being ticatod, cairying 30 per cent,
sulphur, the fuel consumed decreases
considerably and in some instances
where the ore is particularly rich in
sulphur the fuel cost is insignificant.;
in other words, the fuel���sulphur���in
the ore is made to do the smelting. It
is also claimed that it can produce a
very high grade copper matte and also
a high grade silver bullion.
These claims, which are rather pretentious it must bo admitted, must be
practically demonstrated and on
Kootenay ores before tho mining men
here "ill take much stock in them.
Tho smelter at Ferguson cannot be
operated until the snow goes off the
ground so that limestone can be
quarried and used for a flux. Then
tbe smelter plant will be operated and
it will be learned if it wil accomplish
what its admirers claim for it. There
have beeu so many claims made for
new processes and new smelters and
such a number of them have proven
entire or partial failures that it is not
safe to believe all tliat is said regarding anything that is now in this line.

A good many properties in the
Kootenays and Yale are being developed by individuals, syndicates ard
companies which are not seeking
notoriety. Thev are engaged in legitimate mining and embarked in mining
enterplses for the profits which are to
be derived from it where it is conducted along proper lines. They have
faith in the properties they ore operating and are opposed to stock manipulation or to stock jobbery. A case in
point is a company wbich for several
years has been developing a group of
six claims near Deer Park, on Lower
Arrow lane. Although the property
is located only a short distance from
this city little or nothing has appeared in the papers here concerning
it. The management whon approached
for news ooncerning what they were
doing would reply that they were
crowding development work and that
as soon as they had accomplished
something that they would take the
public into their confidence. Now it
is announced that the intention is to
erect a 50-ton concentrator, the contraot for which has been let The machinery is to be especially designed
for treating the ore found in the property. A large quantity of ore has been
blucked out. The ore runs from (14
to $16 to tho ton and can be concentrated three into one.
It is work liko this company is
accomplishing, coupled with the expenditure of considerable money, that
makes it possible for the Federal
authorities to announco as they did a
few days since that lode mining last
year in Canada showed an increase ol
3? per cent.

wonderful effect of yonr Asthmalene, for the cure of Asthma. My wife has
been afflctcd with spasmodic asthma for tlir> past 12 years. Having exhausted
my own skill ns well as many others, I chanced to see your sign upon your
windows on 130 th street, New York, I at onoe obtained a bottle of Astbmalenn.
My wife commenced taking it about the first of November. I very soon noticed
a radical improvement. After using one bottle her Asthma has disappeared
and she is entirely free from all symptoms. I feel that I can consistently recommend the medicine to all who are afflicted with this distressing disease.

������������������������������-M ������������������������������������ ������
The Montana Gold Mining compnny
which is operating six claims near
Doer Park on Lower Arrow lako have
just lot a contract for a 50-ton concentrating plant. The plant is to
consist of one lilalto rock crusher, two
sets of t'orridh rolls, two four com-
pnrtinont jigs, a four-foot Huntington
mill, a Willley inble, a true vanner,
two six-loot trommels, elevators,
classiflors, etc. It is the intention to
build a sorios of settling tanks for the
recovery   of   the   silver   values.    The
machinery  was  specially designed to
treat the class of ore found in the
mine. The principal vnlue found in
the ore is thu silver and tho lead.
The company owns six claims, ilvo of
whioh are crown grunted. These
properties huve beon under sternly
development for several years and a
large quantity of ore has been blocked
out. On tho 100-oot level the oro body
has been drifted on for a distance of
ino feet. It is about niuo feet in
width nnd careful nvcrngo sampling
biiows that it will run from (11 to $10
clear across its width. Tlio Intention
Is to concontrato the ore threo into
one, A. (1. King has designed and is
to superintend the construction of the
mill. Mr, King has had considerable
experience in concentrating ores and
in constructing mills. Ho has beeu
ccnnectcd with mills in tho Cocur
d'Alenes and latterly with the St.
Kugeue concentrator in East
Kootenay.
A. F. Rosenberger and n. Z. BrooK
returned Saturday evening from their
visit to the Lardeau properties of the
Nortliwesten Development syndicate,
of which Mr. Iii'oek is the managing
director. Work has been started on a
wagon road to connect tho Camborne
group with the now townsite ot Gold-
ilelds and will be pushod vigorously
to complation. A power plant is also
to be installed on the pioperty on
Menhinnick creek, where excellent
water power is available. This power
will be used to run three power drills.
It is the intonl i"ii of the management
to run crosscut tunnels at the 300-foot
levol. A quaotity of surface work will
also bo done and the property put in
shnpe as quickly as possible, although
it is also the intention to have all the
development work of a permanent
oharactnr. The oro on this propel ty
is a high grade free-milling gold, and
Mr, Iliock expresses himself as well
satisfied with the appearance of tbo
group.
W. Kirpkatrick and A. Burgess
came in from Ymir ln-t evening.
They state that the snow is nearly ull
gone in Ymir, the sleighing having
broken up last week. A rich strixe
was made on the Union Jack on Sunday. On this property the owners gave
up work about two years ago believing tbat thoy were sixty feet from the
lead. The property was bonded le-
cently and the new holders had not
been at work a weak before the lead
was struck, and a rich pay streak was
encountered,. A strike was also made
last week on the New Victor, a property adj,lining the Wilcox group. On
this property a lead two feet wide has
been struck on which the ore runs
iioni $80 to $130. A number of mining
men have visited the caoip lately
looking over the various properties.

ALABAMA WARBLERS.
McKanlass and tbe Alabama Warblers appeared at the Nelson Opera
bouse last evening before a large and
appreciative audience. Mr. McKanlass appeared in Nelson rive years
since, and played to a good house
and gave good satisFuction and so is
no stranger to tbe looal theatre goers.
Tbe show given last evening consisted
ot up to date vaudeville by oolored
artists. It was a meritorious performance, consisting of Southern plantation songs, good clean jokes, plenty
of lively dancing, excellent trios and
quartette. MisB Lizzie Perry, tbe
Jewish ereole renaered such olassic
selections as "Twas Only a Dream,"
in an artistic manner and was repeatedly eucoied. Miss I'atti McKanlass
sang "Sweet Sixteen" to the satisfaction nf all piesent and was encored to
tbe echo. Mr. McKanlass gave violin
selections and judging from the applause given his rendition of the
"Mooking Bird," "Niagara," "Sugar
in the Gode," and "Gravy on the
Tater," they were among the best in
his extensive reportoire. He was repeatedly encored and made the hit of
evening. The comedians of the company are very funny and their jokes
short and new. The performance concluded with an old fashioned walk-
round. The company will play a return engagment on Monday, March
17, when an entire new programme
will be given, includng a grand cake
walk of three couples. The company
should be given a warm welcome on
its return.
