"Hoodlums" and anally thundering:
"You are Incited to this by your
teachers, who fear that faith healing
will ruin their profession." After u
scene lasting several minutes the students retired.
London, Oct. Hi. ��� Loul Roberts from
Pretoria, under date of October 15th,
reports us follows:
'���French started from Maohadodorp
towards Heidelberg to clear a part of
the country not yet visited by our
troops. Malum, commanding tho
mounted troops, successfully engaged
the enemy on October 13, but our
losses were severe, three ollieers antl
eight men hilled, and three ollieers
and 25 liu-ii wounded. French occupied Carolina yesterday, capturing a
convoy during the nini-ch."
Lord Roberts ulso reports a number of minor affairs, showing that the
Hoers are slill active over a wide
Held.
Pretoria, Oct. 15.���Commandant
Midler, with a number of burghers.
lias surrendered to the Hritish in
Stniiderton. The remainder of the
commando it is said Intended to hold
mil until yesterday whtn they would
also surrender if they were not joined
by a huge force of Americans, who it
was Bald, would arrive on that day to
aid them.
The Hoers have burned a number of
farm houses in the Standerton district belonging to Englishmen. Commandant Erasmus is coining in to arrange the terms of surrender. Generals Barton and elements have surrendered command to Zewart Kopand It
is expected the whole force will be
captured. The Hritish at last reports
were shelling them and bad killed
and wounded a number. Borne prisoners had been taken. Generals Barton
nnd Clements fought for three days to
drive the Hoers into the position they
arc Irving to hold.
At a meeting of the executive committee of the Johannesburg Caledonian Society, it was resolved to apply
to the military authorities for permission to raise a regiment to be known
as the Transvaal Scottish Volunteers.
Tin- idea is to have a complete mili -
tary unit with mounted anil foot soldiers antl artillery.
Il is staled on good authority that
the national bank of South African
Republic will in the future be known
as the National Hunk of South Africa.
The head olliee will be in London.
The bank is in a thoroughly sound
position it having evaded the Government exactions through   the   care and
vigilance of the management.
The men of colonial regiments have
been given the option of receiving
their discharge or taking a three
weeks furlough after which they must
rejoin their companies. If they choose
to lake their discharge, they will lose
certain emoluments. About to members of the Imperial Light Horse have
signified their intention to take furloughs. The others will take their discharge. The volunteer companies of
some regiments aro beginning to
leave foi home.
General Roberts hns issued an order
announcing that General sir Bedevera
HiiUcr has relinquished the command
of the Natal fortes. In the order General Roberts thanks General Bullerfor
his services and says that his ability
and great success caused the collapse
of the Hoer iinny in the custom part
of thu Transvaal.
A train has  been derailed   at   Knap

the doings of the company before and
tlui ing the war, especially in the matter of blowing up bridges so as to stop
the Hritish advance antl iu assisting
the Transvaal Government in othet
ways.
WHY HE STAYS.
Lord Roberts Postpones Departure He-
cause of Renewed   Hoer Activity.
London, Oct.   10.���Commenting upon the   activity   of the Hoers and the
statement from Capetown that  Lord
Roberts has postponed his home coming The Standard says:
"There are certain indications
pointing to the conclusion that unexpected difficulties have arisen which
Lord Roberts deems grave enough to
demand his presence for some time to
come. All the facts suggest that it is
impossible yet to denude South Africa
of any substantial portion of the large
army now- engaged in dominating a
sullen and recalcitrant population."
The editorial finally calls for the severest measures against irreconcilable
Hoers, for a prom [it anil ruthless punishment for every insurgent burgher
caught in delicto. The editorial concludes with the statement "the imperial Government has the country's
mandate ami need not he afraid to act
vigorously."

Evidently the C. P. R. is in deadly
earnest in its intention of cutting the
Grand Forks Railway promoters out
of their line to Republic and means
to get a road in there first or
something, says last week's
Forks Grazette.
Tlie first of the week its preliminary
locution survey was made in :.M hours
so the filing could be mado at the
same time us its local competitors,
and now the big Canadian railway
Company bus begun the work of running its permanent survey.
Word was brought from Republic on
Thursday to the infect that a party of
engineers hail left there to make the
permanent survey of the MeCuaig Republic-Grand Forks Hailway and enquiry by telegraph disclosed the fact
that this report was true. The engineers, .lames N. Ralston and E. 11.
Warner with, a survey party started
out Tliursdny morning and aro working north us fast as they can. The
line being located is that which will
be followed by the railway when it is
built, and from the haste with which
the work is being pushed through the
intention is very evident to build
through at once.
Nothing has been given out for publication By the local promoters for
some days, but that is by no means an
indication that they are sitting idle.
Their work has now gone us fur us
it can go until some move is made to
commence actual building operations.
.lu;;t when any further move will be
made by them is not certain but they
will undoubtedly have something to
give out before long.
A story was on the street here last
evening to the effect that the Great
Northern had quietly sent agents to
Washington. 1). C. und arranged to
have its franchise over the reservation extended for another (ill days. If
this report should prove true it would
teem that both the  competitors  from
this side of the liiiv were cut tint for
the time being as the .Mm Hill charter gives him the right to traverse
iiiiv part of the reserve desired, antl
his asking for an extension of HO days
only would indicate that be intends
getting something done before that
time. Dp to the time of going to
press, however, nothing more definite
than rUmor is known regarding   this.

Amateur Operatic Society's Production of
"The Mikado" Proves a Splendid
Success.
The Nelson Operatic Society is to
be congratulated upon the very marked success it achieved lust night when
Gilbert nnd Sullivan's famous ami
popular comic opera, "The Mikado"
wus presented nt the Opera House.
Nelson certuinly lias reason to be
proud of its amateurs, for a performance such as that given Inst evening
would tlo credit to u city ten times the
size. "The Mikado11 is an opera that
lends itself to pretty staging, elaborate costumes ami beautiful settings.
In this case these opportunities were
taken full advantage of, for when the
curtain was rung up after the overture the people who crowded the house
looked upon the best stage picture
ever presented in Nelson. The scenery was very effective anil the striking costumes of the men in the opening chorus completed an attractive
picture. Applause greeted the raising
of the curtain and it was almost continuous throughout the performance,
all the principal musical gems being
enthusiastically encored. One feature
that the society is to be congratulated
upon was the abundance of lights, instead of the bleary, hazy ones that
generally mange to make the people
on the stage look ghastly. (Ireat
pains were taken with the supplementary wiring of the house ami the
regular lights were more than
doubled, The entrance of the "Three
Little Maids" was perfection itself.
Prceeedctl by a beautifully costumed
chorus of ladles they Come on to complete a picture that was already nearly perfect. The tlnalc of the first aet
showed evidences of careful stage
work as did the eoinini-ncemeii', of the
Second act, where the ladies were
grouped on tho   stnge   very   prettily.
All the   entrance! and exits of the
chorus were extremely effective,
night. Her voice, though low, was
sweet und expressive und every note
reached her bearers, In all of her
number she sang with u finished grneo
und her acting wns replete with
spirit und showed a thorough conception of the part. Her dancing
called forth rapturous applause, whloh,
iu fact never failed to attend her
every sally, throughout the evening'.
Miss Johnson, as "Peep Ho," hntl
a  most   thankless   part and  is  to bo
iiighh mmended    for the manner in
which she played a role that gave
little oportunity to such a conscientious worker. The littlu she hail to
do was well done and she never failed
(o carry out the -picture" in every
detail. In fact three more charming
"Little Maids" would be hard to im-
ngine.
As -Katisha" Mrs. Davys, made a
decided hit Her make-up was excellent and she showed how perfectly an
attractive personality can he sacrificed to the cxigiencics of such a role.
Her acting was thoroughly up to the
mark and the spirit of the part seemed never for a moment to tlesert her.
Ilcr voice wus excellent ami'was made
submissive to the part at all times.
Especially good was her duet with
"KnKn" in the last aet, when she listens to bis story of "Tit Willow." It
was an excellent piece of comedy anil
tit-served the   applause il called forth.
Mrs.   Davys  is to be congratulated
for her clever inanipulutioii of a very
difficult port.
In the male parts Mr. (leorge Williamson made the greatest hit in the
character of"KoKo." His low comedy work was perfect ami "he was
thoroughly ut case in the role. He
never failed to "get his laugh" and
���bowed n clever nntl original conception of a   part   that   has   been plnyetl

ore's voice is too well known to need
any praises anil last night it was as
sweet us ever, his o|H-ning solo being

note was as clear as a hell and his
other numbers were equally well

Tin-   work   of   the chorus cannot bo
too highly commended, it was well

a smoothness that showed a careful attention to their work. There was
none of the stiffness usually seen in
amateurs and just here can be suid a
word of praise of Mr.   Melville   Parry
who has worked arduously training
them to tin- perfection they attained

The volume of sound wns nt nil times
good nnd the tones harmonised splendidly. The one weakness, characteristic til all amateurs���slowness iu attack���was in evidence ami should be
remedied at the coming performances.
The "business'' of the chorus Is exceedingly well done and reflects credit
on the stage manager, The chorui
is the great background of any open

background  was  remarkable  for its
perfection.
Coining to the principals it is difficult to say which one scored the
greatest success. They were all excellent. Mrs. Melville Parry, us Yum-
Yum, the chief female role, was in
excellent voice ami carried off the
part with a charm of manner that was
most effective. Her work throughout
was up to the high Standard that was
expected by those who have heard her
voice before.    Ilcr  greatest    success
was ill the solo. "The Moon ami I"
which gave full opportunity for her to
display the range of her voice. Her
low notes were sweet and true but
sweeter and clearer still were the sustained high notes in the number.    An
enthusiastic encore  followed  the last
note in this as well as in the other
numbers in which she took part, lu
short Mrs. Parry sang ami acted the
part throughout iu a manner mill
equalled by the best of professional
artists.    The   two   costumes she won-
were most becoming ami tin- simple
make-up" only served to render her
appearance most attractive, as a prettier "Yum-Yum" could hardly gladden the heart of a stage lover. Equal
lv at tractive was Miss Heiisiisnu us

an Inconvenience. It is all shockingly
immoral, but it seems to appeal to
the taste of a considerable class of our
little community. To them it is not
shocking; indeed, it is dillieult to imagine anything short of murder that
Would be.
On his way to his own constituency
In the far cast, Sir llibbert Tupper
stopped oil' at Brandon to meet Mr.
Sifton at a public meeting which had
been arranged by telegraph. The ar-
angement was that each should have
an hour antl a half, with a half hour
to Sir llibbert at the   close.    Hut Mr.
sifton had drummed  up  a  suitable
crowd, and when the half hour came
Sir llibbert would not be heard. The
chief topic of discussion was Mr. Sifton's administration of the Yukon.
He made some wild and daring statements, but was careful that there
should he no reply to them. The only
purpose served by the meeting was to
show that Sir llibbert Tapper was not
afraid to meet the Minister at hisown
home, and the Minister was afraid to
have the truth heard.
The Toronto Mail describes Mr.
Cook's letter as a bombshell in the
camp of the Liberals. And well it
might he. For years Mr. Cook has
l���. -egarded as the patient draft-
horse of the party, willing to be driven any direction and to undertake any
load. H a heavy contribution to the
party funds were needed, he was the
first to whom the hat was presented ;
if there was trouble in getting a candidate, the managers demanded that
lie give up his business and step into
tin- breach, and he invariably did.
lie was the stand-by of the party, always available in an emergency, and
ever ready to make any sacrifice that
was demanded of him. That he was
conscientious as well aB patient and
long-suffering never occurred to them,
nor did they think that it could enter
into the case ; they were so long accustomed to using him that they took his
submission as granted. It is not surprising that the sudden balk of this
old war horse should create something
like consternation,
Mr. Cook docs not break with his
party without reason. And it is the
same reason that has driven so many
others who are so inconveniently constituted as to possess a conscience into the camp of an enemy who have
higher notions of political honor. Mr.'
Cook accuses the men who are at present the leaders of having betrayed the
principles of the party, of being false
to their pledges, and of having broken
faith with the people of Canada. It is
not only a general accusation. He
goes into details, antl proves each
charge, up to tho hilt. They pledged
themselves to maintain the indepemt
ence of Parliament, which was en
dangered by the Conservative practice
of appointing members to oHiee. The
Conservatives in IS years made 17 appointments; the Liberals in four years
have mado 11. They promised to
reduce the expenditure; they have increased it by twelve millions. They
promised to reduce the public debt;
they have increased it by eight mil
lions. They promised to reduce the
taxes; they havo increased them by
seven millions. They promised to
abolish protection; tho tariff is substantially the same today as it was
when they took olliee. Tell them of
these things, antl their only reply is.
Ah. ye. but see how prosperous the
country is!
They promised to get a preference
for Canadian products in the British
market; they gave a preference, antl
asked for nothing iii return. They
promised to prohibit the liquor traffic
if the people by'plebiscite declared
against it; the people did, but there is
no prohibition They promised to di
tnlnlsh the Cabinet; the numbers re
main as they were, but the salaries
are increased by S-i.noo a year. Tbey
promised    to   make  Parliament   the
judge when Ministers were act-used;
they armed a Commission in the Yukon case anil then spiked their guns
Ye-, yes. they will say; but what of
It? Sec the prosperity we have: Loot
at tin- inci eased exports, at the ill
creased bank deposits! That is all
they can reply. They have no other
reliance. And iu taking credit for the
prosperity they are usurping the power of Providence itself. Was then
ever such a hypocritical crew?
It is tlie policy of the Conservative
party to foster every native industry.
This is not a matter of mere assertion ; an experience of eighteen years
has given practical demonstration of
its truth. The lead industry in the
Slocan is languishing for the want of
the little protection necessary to put
it upon its feet. The Liberal (lovernment have been asked to take action,
but declined. Mr. Galllher, if elected, could tlo nothing for the lead industry, for tlie party with which he
is allied arc Indifferent, if not hostile.
Mr. Foley could tlo nothing, for he
belongs to no party antl would have
no influence. Every man interested
in the lead industry, owner or miner,
will vote for his own good if he gives
his support to Mr. MaeNeill antl thus
help to return a Conservative Government.
There is no need    for   further   can
Vasslng in Yale-Cariboo.      The organ
Isatlons may be dissolved, and   canili
dates ami helpers may sit   down   with
folded hands and await   the    issue   in
tin- rest of the Dominion.    For as the
i iitry   goes   so    will    Yale-Cariboo.
Tin- other constituencies will decide
the elections for us without our taking the least trouble in flu- matter.
��� If the country   goes   Liberal,    Vale-
Cariboo will   return  Candidate Gal 11
her.     If llu-   Conservatives   enrry   the
country Candidate MacNcill will be
easily elected." Why bother, then,
when the issue will be determined for
ns by others'.' Never mintl our principles. Principles in politics count for
nothing; in fact, to have tIii-iii at all,
according to the comfortable doctrine
that runs through our locul contemporary's deliverance this  morning', is
Something new has been introduced
into our election methods by the Conservatives of Nanaimo. There was a
meeting to consider Mr. Bryden's letter declining a nomination, anil after
accepting his decision with regret another candidate was chosen, hut the
name of the person is withheld. We
suppose the intention is to elect hiin
without the knowledge of the people.
There are Immense dangers in this
practice, for if it were to become general we would soon have Parliament
Oiled with members whom the people
would not stomach. Hut what a splendid opportunity it would offer to politicians with more ambition than popularity !

Says The Revelstoke Herald: "The
ippointnient of F. (I.    Fauquier, Min-
ng Recorder at Nakusp, to the posi-
,ion of Gold Commissioner here will
be a popular one in   the district.    Mr.
''auquicr is an old servant of the Pro
incial (lovernment and the person to
whom the olliee sliould in the natural
course of events pass.    The Herald be-
ieves that he will prove a thoroughly
acceptable and efficient administrator
of the affairs of tlie district."

To have one thing
laughing at the other
displays bad taste.
If you are wearing a
first-class costume in
every respect but the
Shoes, in that way
the Shoes are laughed
at.
It is not necessary
to wear a small size to
have a neat Shoe, a
large size foot properly
fitted looks equally well
Dont get a broad
fitting Shoe on a narrow foot. Have a
Shoe fit snugly around
the instep and roomy
at the toes.
A slender foot with
a high instep is a perfect foot. Get your
Shoes a half size long
and one width narrower. We can fit your
foot as we carry widths
from B to E. Give us
a trial fair.

LACROSSE BOYS HOME,
Winnipeg Players Tell of  the  West
minster Team,
The Winnipeg   Tribune   says;     I'hc
Winnipeg lacrosse team returned   Inst
night on the Imperial    Limited   from
New   Westminster   nnd   were given n
hearty greeting despite the fact Hint
they huve not returned with the scalps
of the Westminster men dangling nt
their belts. President A. E. Warren
met the hoys at l'oi-tuge and returned
with them to the city. Three of tinmen, Con Marrln, .las. Murphy and
Manager McQowan dropped oil' along
the way to visit friends, hut the remainder who returned arc delighted
with their trip and express the keenest pleasure at the sportsmanlike way
in which they were treated. The
general opinion expressed is that the
const men play nn entirely new and
almost unbeatable system of lacrosse,
and the New Westminster team have
a gootl right to tlie title of champions
of the world. A great part of their
success has been due to the fact that
they have played the same system together for four years and have reduced
the game to a science under the instruction ol' Turnbull and Cheney,
pastinastcrs in the nil of tossing tin-
hall. The Winnipeg boys describe the
gume us u whirlwind one from start
to finish and admit that in the lirst
match they were a trifle  nervous   nnd
excited. The taciics of their opponents completely mystified them and
the 'Pegs did not seem to know how-
to light them, 111 the Vancouver game
the TegS wiic iiioie.it homo, and tin
New Westminster team wen- delighted when   the   hoys   from    the   prairie
Province came "lit on top. In the
third  match  with   tin-  Westminster
team the hoys were much more at
home and played a very Interesting
match, Evon tbelr oppononts noticed
the Improvement mode, admitted Hint
w ith a little practice the prairie boys
would he almost their in_tch, Capt,
Kwing promises that next year they
will have a team fully equal to anything on the i M and llii-.   sentiment

the Supreme Court of Hritish Columbia in the ease of Cullaghen vs. Coplen. This is nn interesting mining
case and deeides the ownership of the
tody 1- ruction and .Inker Fraction.) wo
valuable properties in the Sloean. adjoining    the    Freddie     Lee.    Coplen
maintained thut his claim, the Cube
Lode, extended in an opposite direction to that which has now heen decided, and if his view had heen sustained he would have been given possession of the greater part of the Cody
anil .Inker fractions. The legal light
has heen a hitter one. The ease was
lirst tried at Nelson early ill 1800, nnd
turned upon the construction of section
38 of the mineral net, respecting the
certlflcate of work. Justice Martin
gave judgment in favor of Coplen,
nnd the ense wns Immediately appealed, in the full court nt Vancouver,
Justice Drake und Justice Waller
awarded the case to Cullughail, while
Justice Irving held it gave the claim
to Coplen. regardless of the defects in
the steps taken hy him under the aet
to locate it. The supreme court of

THOUGHT HONORS ABOUT EVEN.
Possibly the most novel response
ever made to u request lo return a
vote of thanks to a chairman was
mado by Mr. Moody during his lirst
visit to England, lie had attended
u     meeting    ut    which   the   Karl   of
Shaftesbury was chairman, The dutv
of proposing a vote of thanks was
assigned to him, ami the announcement made:
"Our American cousin. Rev. Air.
Moody, of ( hloago, will now move u
vote of thanks to the noble earl who
hns presided on this occasion,"
The whole thing was quite out of
Mr, Moody's line. Knglish formalities
might or might not have come gracefully from his lips had he attempted
tlicm. hut lie did not. With an utter
disregard of  conventionality lu- burst
upon the audience with the cold nn-
niiiiiici'inent:
"The speaker has made two mis
lakes. To begin with, I'm not. BeV.
Mr. Moody al all. I'm plain Dwight
I,. Moody, a Sunday School worker.
And then I'm not your American cousin; hy   the   grace   of   Cod   I'm   your
brother, interested with you In our
Father's work for his children.
"And now uhout this vote of thanks
to the 'noble earl for being oUr chairman this evening.' I don't see why
wc   should thank    him any more than
he should  thank  us.   When  at one
lime they offered to thank our Mr.
Lincoln for presiding over a meeting
iu Illinois, he slopped it. lie said
he'd tried to tlo bin duty, unti they'd
tried to do theirs, lie thought it wns
about an even thing all uround."
Thut opening fairly took the breath
away from Mr. Moody's hearers. Such
talk could not he ganged by liny
known standard. Mr. Moody can led
his Knglish audiences with him from
that beginning to his latest labors,
