has just Issued a circular to the shareholders, making an important an
nouncoment. It states that the directors have two propositions before
them, one from London, which contemplates the purchase of the Rathmullen properties and the formation of nn
English company, capitalized for
��200,000, with a treasury of ��r,0,000.
This arrangement would give the
shareholders stook in the new company at the par value of their shares in
the existing company, that is, each
share would be valued at one shilling, or 25 cents, so that the holder of
10.000 shares would received the
equivalent of $3,500 in English pound
shares. The other proposal ia from
the United StateB, and the proposition
is for a syndicate to purchase all unallotted and forfeited shareB, pay all
liabilities and supply treasury funds
for the permanent development of the
properties. In the meantime a call of
one half a cent per share is being
made. This will make the total called
up to date two cents per shares.

Heroically Fight to the Death Against
Over-whelming Force of Boers at
Dornbalt Farm.

With Unflinching Bravery While
Ranks Were Decimated-
Kleiksdorp, Transvaal, April (j.���

llritish had three officers and 34 men
Killed and 1ft officers and 131 men
wounded, while the Boers had 1.17
killed or wounded, show that 2,000
Iloers opened a strong attack from
different points, with three guns and
a pompom. This attack was made at
a moment when the British had left
their luggage in a laagor in charge of
a Canadian contingent and weie galloping aoross the open plain with the
intention of capturing a Hoer convoy
which had been discovered five miloe
ahead. The British retired solidly
and, having dismounted, opened a
return fusilade on the Boer.
While the luggage in charge of
the Canadians was seot or, the British
formed a camp and started digging
Tbe shelling ol the Boers stampeded
the mules and caused confusion, but
otherwise it was uot very effective as
many shells failed to explode.
The Canadian front was attacked in
strong numbers, but they gallantly
repelled everv attempt made by the
Boers to bieak through. One party of
the Canadians fought until they were
all killed and wounded, and the last
mau of this party, although mortally wounded, emptied two bandoliers of cartridges at the enemy and
then broke his rifle.
The flghtirg was severe and general
for about three hours, but by that time
the Britisn had entrenched and the
gun got into action. .The Canadian
forces repelled numerous and determined aitempts made under the personal exhortations ot the Boer leaders.
Toward night the fire gradually
ceased and the Boers retired.
The British then telegraphed for
aid and further entrenched their camp
for the night to await the arrival of
General Kitchener, but the Iloers made
no attempt to renew tbe attack.

Government Hhb   Decided   to   Publish
Al! the Correspondence.
London,April 7.���The house of commons reassembled today aftei the
Easter recess. An early opportunity
was taken to press the government for
information on the subject of peace
negotiations in South Africa, but the
government leader, A. J. Balfour,
declared the minister had nothing in

secretary, Mr. Broderick, said that
in view of Ihe recent statement of Mr.

Considerable        Danish      Sentiment
Against Sale of Wost Indian Islands.
Copenhagen, April 7.���Two more
secret meetings of the Lamhthing
were held today to discuss the Danish
West Indies islands treaty,but no vote
was reached. The opposition made
a new motion, namely, to order ..that
a plebiscite he taken before and not
after tho ratification of the treaty.
This motion will not be accepted but
it caused the postponement of a vote
to the next meeting of the house.
April ��, whioh will undoubtedly be
the last one.
A reliable forecast Indicates that the
Landsthiug will vote for the ratification of the treaty and a plebiscite
subsequent to this action.
Herr Von Fcssen who was sent to
the Danish West Indies io 1001 by the
National Tidende to stir un opposition to the proposed sale to the
United States, has returned with
glowing reports of the success of his
mission. Today Horr Von Fessen published an artiolo in the National
Tidende in wbich he declares that
influences have boen at work in the
islands whioh would render a plebiscite at this time worthless to Denmark, as tbo vote of the inhabitants
of tbe island would result in favor of
the sale. He, therefore, asks the
Landsthing to reject the treaty outright. This is believed to shjw tho
desperate straits of the opposition. It
it said that tbe socret meetings of the
Landsthing were very stormy and
tbat a proposal to reject tbe treaty
was defeated by a vote of 35 to 28.
Congress Passes More Drastic Measure Than Last
Debarred   From   Philippines
and Service on American
Washington, April 7.���The honso
passed the Chinese exclusion bill
today after having incorporated in it
several amendments wbich ineicased
the drastic character Ol the measure.
The principal one not only excludes
Chinese by birth and descent, out all
Chinese of mixed blood.
The chief struggle was over an
amendment to prohibit the employment of Chinese ssilors on American
ships. An amendment covering IhiH
proposition was ruled out ut llrst on
a point of order but was subsequently
modified to evade the ruling aud wus
adopted 100 to 74. As oassed the bill
practically erajts al! the existing exclusion luws and incorporates with
them the existing treasury regulations. It extends the sectional laws to
the Philippines and the other possessions of thc United States ad forbids
Chinese laborers in United Slates or
cloniul possessions from coining iuto
this country. By tho terms of thu bill,
the Philippine commission is directed
to adopt proper moasures fur the enforcement of the provisions of the bill
in the Philippines.

Rossland, April 7.���Some of the

scarlet fever and mdasles.
The application of the War Eagle
and Centre Star companies for water
rights on Rock creek was again before
the gold commissioner today. An
adjournment was takon to allow the
commissioner to visit tho ground and
ascertain how much water thore
actually was in existence. Tho Trail
smeltor has a record of 400 inches
from Rock creek and the city as subsequent record and the mining companies come after that. Tho flrst tvo
claim all tbe water thore is. The
eity has prior right on all threo forks
of Murphy creek and ou the east and
west fork of Little Sheep oreek. Tho
companies now put in a claim to
Stoney creek on whieh the city has a
prior chum and the smelter a subsequent one. Tho claim of the mining
companies is a new contention.

Should the legislators cease their
personal quarrels for a short peiiod
and Bettlc down to the transaction of
tho businoss of the people, for which
purpose the members were elected,
although many ol them apparently
do not realize that this is so. some at
tention might, with profit, be given to
tlie mining laws. The enactments
as to the mines have the effect of
keeping capital out of the country
and are thus delaying the development of one of tiie best mining tields
yet discovered. Tbo coast represents
lives have been in the ascendancy in
the legislature and in the cabinet ever
snce thc porvince came into existence,
They know little or nothing about tho
mining conditions in the interior,
imagine that tho const is all there
is of British Columbia, scoiu to desire
to exact every possible cent from the
mine owners and to burden their operations with useless regulations.
Out of th most onerous of the min-
mg laws in tho two per cont tax
levied on the gross proceeds of mines,
less tho freight and treatment charges.
This is admitted by ull to be onerous,
burdensome and inequitable. In some
cases, where thc ore is ol a low grade,
it is claimed that tho government is
at present making as much as some of
the mines whieh havo put iu large
sums to purchase the properties they
operate, to develop them and to equip
them with prop, r machinery. As tbis
is palpably a wrong how can it be expected thut capital will bo anxious
to invest in a place where such an
unfair Im prevails'.1
The mining laws, nnd especially
those which relates to corporations,
abound in tines and penalties for failure to do certain things which are of
no reul importance jthe penalties,however, when enforced amount to practical confiscation cf the assets of the
offending corporations. A number ot
suts aie now pending in the courts for
alleged breaches of these laws aod if
the amounts sued for ean be collect"d.
some of the companies mulcted will
be bankrupted. The violations are
merely of a technical nature and have
inflicted no private or public injury
ot momeci on anyone. The law should
at least be changed so that the penalties would be reasonable and not un-
'  usual and draEtic as they arc.
These matter* are worthy of the
immediate attention of the lawmakers. If. however, they do not do sotne-
t'lirg at once the mine owneis will, of
oourse, be oompelted tu go on under
the present adverse conditions until,
ui-der the redistiibution bill.Kootcnay
and Yale will be propeily represented
in the legislature and Dy men who
are In sympathy with tho mining
industry nnd fully understond its
wants and needs. T")en the desired
reform can bo secured aod the conditions ���Kill then be made so advantageous thut investors will no longer
shun the province, then tho mining
industry will be placed on a new and
bettor foo'ing and will have a growth
that thc natural conditions entitle it
common thing in Santa Barbara to
see horseback paries of 20, 40. 50 and
7% going for an outing for the day to
tbe mountain canyons, or racing along
the vast strctebet, of sandy beach on
the oitean shore. Then thero will be
tallyho parties in the hills aud they
return in the evening with the horses,
coach and occupants buried in a profusion ol wild (lowers: tea parties on
the boach, where all is one sweet
song; camping parties in the wild
mountain groves, where the weeks are
spent in happy relaxation fiom business, schocl and social life; mountain
parties that seek the high and rugged
peaks for seclusion und game.
Aro they tourists who Indulge in
these gay recreation*'.' In a small
degree, yes; but by far the greater
number are resideut Culilorniuns, who
are not content to point tho way for
visitors to enjoy life, but are detei-
mined to lead ln the enjoyment.
Nothing attracts attention to a point
of interest like a crowd. Of all the
residents of New Denver who piint
with so much pride to the glacier, we
venture to say that not one in '-'0 has
ever visited it and can realize its
magnizude and grandeur. How many
have stood upon its glassy s\irfaoe and
looked down upon New Denver and
scanned the rugged mountain and
placid lake scenery Iron its lofty
height'.' How many have climbed auy
of the mountains towering abovo us
and'looked down upon the lake as it
sparkles in tho sunlight or lho glorious moonlight. Wa have all stood in
wonderment and awe and looked out
upon tho loke and upwards and
around at the great snow-capped
mountains and deep oauyous iu the

Simon Guggenheim, chairman ol
the executive committee of the direc-
tois of the American Smelting and
Refining Company and one of the
best informed men on metals and tli oi
conditions in the United States, in a
recent interview at Denver stated thai
he believed the coming 12 months
will see a great improvement in the
market price and demand for all the
leading metals. The outlook for
silver is improved, he said, b'cause
the prospect of tho Philippine coinage
bill is good. The measure will provide a new market for the metal, aud
will, it is thought, materially affect
its price. Just what price wculd be
reached by silver Mr. Guggenheim
was not prepared to state.
The load situation, bo thought, was
more favorable. This is caused by
the prosperity wbi;h prevails all over
the United States. Tho farmers are
painting their houses and this means
the consumption of an immense
amount of lead used in makiig white
lead. The great amount of construction work which is being done
all over the country will require a
corresponding amonot of lead pipe.
He believed, therefore, the market for
lead will be much improved.
Copper, Mr. Guggenheim believed,
will rise in price somewhat because
of an agreement between tho various
interests which will probably be made
within the next 12 months. He did
not believe that the metal wonld go
back to the same figures as before the
recent fall, but he thought it would
reach 13 o, 14 cents, which, he said,
was a natural and normal prico. The
future he thought holds much better
prospects for the price of metals.
These hopeful views, coming from
one who is in a position to speak
authoritatively indicate that tbe
worst is over and that from now on
there is certain to result a betterment
of conditions in the metal markets
whieh will he of the utmost benefit to
those engaged in producing the precious and useful metals in tbis province.
Mine owners should feel encouraged
and should continue their operations
with more confidence than ever.
R. T. Lowery,in tbe Denver Ledge,
has been giving somo good advice on
how to make the Tourist association
a success. He says the desire is to
make it of benelit to the town and
declares it can be made a success tf

Halrao  district   has   a   remarkable
marble   deposit   which   is now being
opened   up,     about   six  miles  east.
William McrAtlnir, a   marble  expert,
who has covered a large   urea   of   the
province in a search for   marble,   has
been   successful   in   locating   an immense deposit horo.      .Specimens from
the   quarry   nave   beun examined   by
eastern experts aud pronounced as un-
ctirpussed anywhere on   the   American
continent.     The   deposit   is OOil   feet
wide.      Messrs. McArthur,   liradfoot,
Shaekloton St Simpson  have  purahas-
ed U00 acres of land on whioh the vein
extends for about   half   a mile.     The
marble is found in a number of diner-
out   hues   including   the   pure  black
vaiiety, pure white,   and   while   and
blnoK mottled.     Altogether there   arc
found   uo   less   than id different  and
distinct   varieties.     Scleral  carloads
havo been shipped to Nelson where   it
is   utilized   for   moulding and monument pnrpoees.   Tne waste has u mercantile value   as it can be made   iuto

The announcement of thc appearance in our city on April 10 of tbe
distinguished actor Frederick Warde,
cannot but be a source ot genuine
satisfaction to lovers of the drama,and
the admirers of all that is noble and
true in art. For twenty years Mr.
Warde has been recognized as one of
the foremost actors of the country
he has won the respect and admiration of the public by his devotion to
hiB profession and fidelity to tho
Shakespearian and legitimate drama.
Mr. Warde appears this time in a
character that he lias made peculiarly
his own "llelphegor.the Montebank,"
in the grand old play of that name by
D'Ennery, author of "The Two
It   is  safe   to say that no  grander
personation   exists   on   tbe American
stage of today.    Gifted by nature with
a   superb   athletic figure, trained  in
youth to study and observation,broadened and developed by travel, contact
with the world and   association   with
the   leading   artists   in both   hemispheres,   Mr.   Ward brings to his art a
sympathy and experience   enjoyed   by
few; added to this.a temperament that
finds appreciation only for the heroic,
tbo   great   and   higher   impulses    of
manhood.     With  these qualities, Mr.
Warde, in the maturity of his powerB,
is peculiarly and particularly adapted
to represent the part of "Belphegor,"
that so admirably   combines the highest qualities of the  dramatio art   aud
supported.1   by   the    best      oompany
