Colonial troops, Mounted Infantry,

Coldstreams immediately preceded the
gnu carriage bearing the body. The
pall bearers were all generals. Oeneral Roberts, Prince Francis of Teok,
General Kitohener and all of General
Robert's stuff present in Pretoria, followed the body. At the Cathedral the
Rov. Mr. Rose, Chaplain of the Australians, received the_body,which was

mourners and a number of tbe ordinary congregation filled the building.
Tlie service was choral. The Rev.
Mr. Cox, Chaplain of the Canadians,
read the lesson. The Rev. Mr. Wilson, the Senior Chaplain of Pretoria,
and other clergy were present. After
the services at the church the procession reformed in Church Square and
inarched to the cemetery, a mile west
of the town.
Upon arriving at the cemetery the
Coldstream Guards halted and lined
the path to tho grave, standing with
their rifles pointed to the ground and
with beads bent. At the grave the
Rev. Mr. Maurice,tho Kev. Mr. Jones,
and the Rev. Mr. Mullineux, conducted the burial service. The Guards
then tired a royal salute, which was
followed by three volleys over the
grave. The Queen sent a wreath of
lilliea and carnations. Another beautiful wreath bote a card inscribed,
"From His Mother." Other wreaths
wero sent by Lord nnd Lady Rob

Lyttleton reports that Kitchener
successfully surprised the Boers during the night of November 7th. A
mounted party of the loth Hussars
and tbe Gloucester Mounted Infantry
under Capt. Chetwode managed to
pass tbe Boer outposts and while tbe
latter engaged the enemy's picket the
Hussars charged the Boors in] the
moonlight, sabering many. Chetwode
and several non-commissioned officers
acted with great bravery but tbe Hussars would probably have Buffered se

had not they beon supported by the
Mounted Infantry. Iu tho morning
artillery and infantry joined Chet-
wode's force and completed the Boer
route, who are said to have lost heavily. Smith-Dorien's wounded, who
returned from the Boer camp, report
that Commandant Prynsloo and General Fourier were killed and that General Groebeler was wounded in the
recent fighting.

THE DREYFUS CASE.
Yarmouth, N. S., Nov. 12.���The]
steamer Monticello, plying between
this port and St. John, N.B., foundered iu the Bay of Fundy, Saturlay
morning, and 33 out of 37 passengers
and crew were drowned.
The   steamer   left   St.   John at   11
o'clock Friday and had fairly good
weather until Saturday morning
when a furious storm broke which
caused the steamer to founder. Among
tbe drowned aro a number of commercial travellers representing Ontario

The authorities concerned are naturally very^reticent under the peculiarly
delicate situation in which they are
placed, tbe more so as several of these

weeks should disclose a very interesting state of affairs.

What Emiie Zola Has to Say About it
Now.
Paris, Nov. 12.���Emile Zola, asked
if the Dreyfus case will be reopened,
replied :
"Of course it will be when the exhibition is over.. 'Murder will out.'
sooner or later, it is bounrt to come,
whatever the Senate, the army and
the Pope may do or say.
"Amnesty forsooth! Who in the
world could bury this business in oblivion before it bad run its natural
course? Dreyfus and his friends are
not likely to be oblivious of their natural rights until justice is done. The
only people who want the matter laid
aside and forgotten are those who are
interested iu keeping light under a
bushel.
"If Waldeek Rousseau thinks be can
put out tbe fire by a vote for oblivion
he is mistaken. There is only one
way of ending the matter and that Is
a fair, open trial. Tbe innocence of
Dreyfus can bo proved whenever the
proper means of doing so are taken
by men not afraid of the truth.
"The Dreyfus case is purely judicial
and has nothing whatever to do with
our religious,political or social differences. Tho people who made capital
ont of Dreyfus are men who wanted to
upset the Republican regime. They
are led by the Pope, the Jesuits, General Mereier and his brother officers."
Kamloops, Nov. 12.���Mr. D. \. McDonald,

Concerning the interesting contest
between the C. P. it. and Great Northern at Rossland, first mentioned in
The Mirier, the following from The
Rossland Miner will be read with interest :
A sensational piece of railway grading and locating was done yesterday
by the C. P. R. railway on the slopes
of Red Mountain just below the Le
Roi dump, and running parallel to the
Spokane Falls & Northern line. It is
usually the custom to first run a trial
line, loeftte it. ami after the grades
have been obtained and calculated, to
next proceed to letting of contractu.
These forms were all dispell
in regular order yesterday, and there] on
wits to be seeu the spectacle
way locating, surveying and grading
all going on simultaneously. In fact,
In one place, just above the Black
Bear boiler house, railway grading,
was started before even the gradient
pegs were put iu.
The reason   for   this   haste .til   the
part of the Canadian I'aeilie was   that
the   Great   Northern   Railway hud already surveyed the very line on which
the work Is now being done, and were
liable at any moment to start   in   opposition.    Tlie points at stake are the
shipment   of   the   big second dump of
the Le Roi   mine and tlie supplying uf
the   Black   Bear   boiler    house   with
wood and coal necessary for the geno.-
ration of 2,1100 horse power steam, and
also witli timbers and other   supplies.
Tho     undertaking   wus     conceived
with tbe   utmost secrecy.    F. P. Gut-
olius, resident engineer of   tlie   C.    P.
R. at   Nelson,   brought  over  on   the
previous day, a corps of surveyors and
a batch of workmen, who were all set
to work   yesterday   morning   al  daylight.    The proposal   Is   to run a half
mile of track which will connect witli
the  line' already   laid   across the big
trestle to the  Centre   Star   and   War
Eagle ore bins.    This track   will   run
round tlio side of Red   Mountain   and
will end just  abovu the   boiler   house
on the Black    Hear   without   missing
tho Great Northern track running   up
from Northport into   the   Red   Moun-i
tain depot.  Incidentally it  will   cross
both tramways   from the Le   Hoi. Uie
main shipping tramway and   also) the
gravity tramway from the second-class
dump, which is not in use, but which
is running to  the   track of  tbe   rival
line.    This   will   permit   the    Le Roi
company   to    handle  the  ore nf   the
dump at a much   less rust   than   if   It
had to bo brought up hill so as to ship
on tbe upper siding of the 0, P. R. at
A SECOND   LIVERPOOL.
east, bad to be handled again
brought to the point required by
means of wagons. The contractors,
Messrs. Met'hail _s Tierney, have already a force of 15 men upon the
ground and a larger number are coming. Today there sliould be a gang of
at least (ill men at work. It ia expected that unless some steps are taken
by the Great Northern that the line
will be in use within a very few days.
What steps will he taken by the Great
Northern are not at present known
although it may be taken for granted
that the rival lino will not let the
matter go by default.
It is au open secret that this is   the
beginning only of   railway    .vork   In
this district.    The   C.    P.    R.  lino has
been    surveyed     to   the   Velvet  over
much the same ground, and   in   much
the same direction taken by Mr. 11. B.
id with I Smith is bis late location of tlie wag-
road   to   that   point.    This   line,
f   rail-1 however, was to have its initial point
at tlie end of the Le   Roi spur, situated 70 or HO feel above the present proposed track.
In addition to this thero is also tbe
spui to the Columbia-Kooteuay which
may be put in by either line, C. P.
R. or Great Northern, or which may
he approached from Trail as well as
from here. Besides this, certain surveys from Centre Star Gulch to Murphy Creek have been In progress
throughout the summer, and which
arc known to have bad for their object the proposed location of a line
connecting Rossland witli that point,
either with the object of establishing
a route for the conveying of lime and
water to the smelter near the city, or
with the idea of taking ore from the
camp to 11 smeltor situated on either
the Murphy or tlie Rock Creek valley.
The exact location haB not, of
course, been determined, as there is
the question of water right on the
creeks mentioned, which is a complicated one, and into which several rival interests, the city, the Trail smelter, the B. A. C. and the War Eagle
and Centre Star entor. This matter
is supposed to come up for adjudication this month, but as the Lieutenant-Governor of the Province has considered the advlsabilty of appointing
a special commissioner to Investigate
tbe whole question,the matter may be
delayed for some time before It oorncB

Now there are two alternative
routes for the C. P. R. to the country,
lying north of Red Mountain. That
which appears at first sight most feasible is the line through Centre Star
gulch, the highest point of whiuh is
practically attained at tlio uppermost
trestle. But on the further side of
Red Mountain, in   order   to   keep the
GlaBgow   Hopes   to   Become a Greater
Shipping Centre.

U. S. CABINET CHANGES.
New "York, Nov. 12.���The Times,
in a special from Washington, says:
"Tlio talk about tint Immediate disruption of the Cabinet is without foundation.    The   Cabinet   will   stand   by
the President until ids next Inauguration. Thus members who are anxious to retire will have their chance
then. Nevertheless there will be
changes on March 4th, though the
President would be satisfied if there
were not many lncmhcis nf the present
Cabinet anxious to retire to private
life.
When Sir Charles Tupper arrived In
Montreal last Friday there were let-
tors and telegrams from every part of
the Dominion, expressing sympathy
and good-will, and amongst them
there were messages from six Provinces from sitting members offering
to resign their seats,and promising to
work to elect Sir Charles. When asked shut his decision was to be' Sir
ehailes was llrm In declining, saying
that, under 110 circumstances even if
offered a seat hy acclamation, would
he consent to re-enter political life.
���' 1 am   deeply moved   by   these  expressions   of    good-will,"   said    Sir
Charles,   us  he  showed   a budget  ot
telegrams.    "But   my      decision      is
tinal.    For four years I have   worked,
iu season and  out   of season   for   tho
good of the   Party, to the best of   my
ability.     I have shortened my life   by
privations     incidental    to    campaign
work.    My friends   and  colleagues in
the   House  are  good   enough   to  say
very kind things about   me  and   that
work.    They are too considerate,   but
1 thank   them   cordially   for their expressions of good-will.   In the quiet of
my home-life I will not be an indifferent spectator of public events.    I shall
take tho   greatest   pleasure in   seeing
the Conservative Party, now united to
a man, taking its place in tbe House,
und before  the   country,   waging   its
battles, by   meaiiB   of  younger   men,
full of vigor, hope and endurance, aud
having behind it a good cause, that of
securing for the people of Canada wise
legislation,   righteous   law   and   fair
play   to all   creeds  and nationalities.
As I step  out  of   public   life,   I   am
proud to be  able   to   say that I never
used nor   countenanced   the   using of
any   but   one policy   in   each and   al)
the Provinces.    1 defy any man to say
thut I huve  ever  reflected   upon   any
nationality, or done   other than   help
to Cement the bond of    union between
all   tlie   races, as   Canadians   with   a
common   heritage   uud   u common future.    God   forbid   that   there   should
be anything out pence   and   good-will
throughout the Dominion.    There is a
great    future    for    the   Conservative
Party, and its   future  has not at   any
time in four years, looked as bright us
today.

We have received the closing number of the Paris edition of The New
York Times. The publishers of that
enterprising Daily made this foreign
edition a feature of the Exposition,
and for five months enabled visitors to
see close at band how a great newspaper is ||-t out. The TimeB is one
of the best and ablest of American
journals, and its Paris edition fully
sustained Its reputation. It lives up
to its motto, "All the news that's fit
to print. "	
Winnipeg is the latest City to enter
the lists in the contest for possesion
of the Canadian mint, and bases its
claim on the fact that it is adjacent
to the gold fields of Doth British Columbia and the Lake of the WoodB
district. The Mayor announces that
no effort will be spared to secure the
mint for the Prairie Capital and
meanwhile the Coast cities are keeping up tluvir cries for it. Witll Hall's
Siding and Sproat's Landing yet to
hour from, the result is doubtful.
It is learned from The Labor Gazette, which is published at Ottawa,
thut the Department of Public Works
there has called for tenders for the construction of the Postotlice, Customs and
Inland Revenue office, at Rossland.
As the Department is now calling for
tenders for the construction of buildings ut various points throughout the
Dominion, it begins to look as if Nelson would at last get its long promised public building, but no tenders
have yet been called for. From some
of Mr. Galliher's speeches it might al
most be gathered that the Government
is waiting to see if we earn the building by sending a supporter of it to the
Cupitul.      	
mining   interests of   the   district  ha
given a decided   impetus.
The elections in the Yale-Cariboo
district will not take place until December Oth. Nominations occur next
Monday. There is about as much interest evidenced in the contest as
there would be if the polling was to
come off some time in 1002
Every time Mayor Houston smells
gas, sees an electric car or passes on
the street one of the directors of the
Tramway Company, he immediately
works himself into a rage that is
calmed only at the editor's desk where
paper und pencils can always be
found.
Our present Mayor and Provincial
Member is not satisfied with the honors tbe citizens of this City and district have thrust upon him. He again
announces himself a candidate for
Mayor next year���this time for the
purpose of waging war against the
public service corporations of the
City.

In order to celebrate the victory of
Mr. Tarte's Government on Tuesday
the French Tricolor waved in the
breeze on the new Government build
ing in New Westminster. Tho fact
that under Tarte's regime such outrages ure becoming somewhat common
does not mukc tbciu any the less distasteful. Tho Province of tjuebec
has voted us five year's moro of Mr.
Tarte's loyalty, but the Minister ot
Public Works will coufer a favor on
the Proviuco of British Columbia if
he will see that his "beloved Tricolor" Is not raised to insult us at
such short range. Wo arc too loyal out
here, to have any but the British
emblem at the top of flag poles on
public buildings.
The Tramway Directors are not
seeking sympathy, for the renson that
they are not in need of it. They are
simply asking that their enterprise
shall not be made the victim of the
hostility of the Mayor, who embraces
every opportunity that prrsenls itself
to put liis knife into it. The City is
greatly in need of ndditioliul electric
power, and a short time ago the Conn
ell were endeavoring to obtuin It
They hud all offer frum the Tramway
Company, tbe acceptance of which
would have been a gooil thing for thi1
City, but the Mayor would ratlici
spite the Company than serve the
town and the offer was suffered to
drop. It is not surprising that Directors representing an enterprise
that has done so much to bring Nelson into prominence should resent
treatment of th s kind.

A THANKSGIVING WOOING.
Th. froat was on the cottage pane.
The skies were gray mid chill,
But with a trembling hand ahu smoothed
Her kerchief's dainty frill,
For then she Buw the youthful senilrel
Dismounting in the snow,
In velvet coat and buckled shoes,
Thanksgiving long ago.
While with her wrinkled sire ho talked
Of weather and of wheat
His ear was ever strained to catch
The music of her feet.
Her dimpled arms were deep In flour,
Her rounded check aglow.
Her fattier slept���ho stole a kiss
Thanksgiving long ago.
Bis stately mother and her guest.
Were waiting at the hall
Before the feast in silver served,
But lie forgot them all,
And at the furinor's hutnhlo board,
With curly head bent low,
Be called a courtly blessing down
Thanksgiving long ago.
Clear rose the moon abovo tho woodi,
And twilight veiled the farm,
But still lee lingered at the gate,
Tho bridle on liis arm.
"Oh, bake and brew for mo alontl
Bt mine for weal and woe.
1 love you, dear," he softly Hid '*'
Thanksgiving long ago. /_.
In yonder carven frame she standi,       j. 'j
In peurls and tilue brocade,
And still tradition fondly keep.
The pumpkin pies she made
And tells agnln the story swoct,
When granaries overflow,
Ot how the Biiuiro a-wooing went
Thanksgiving long ago.

THE WARLOCK PEAR.
MEN OF MARK.
laid to Be tin- Moat Wonderful Vi-ge-
tnble Curiosity In Existence,
Few families possess an heirloom thnt
c.n compare either In rarity or antiquity
with the Warlock pear of Colstoun,
which Is beyond doubt th. most wonderful vegetable curiosity in existence und
its authenticity beyond dispute. Hugo,
Lord de Gifford of Yester, the magician,
lived in the reign of King Alexander III
of Scotland, lie presented himself before the king previous to the battle ot
Largs, 12('e_, and is described by Sir Walter Scott in "Mannlon."
The wizard Lord of Yester gave his
daughter in marriage to a scion of the
ancieut family of Uny, ancestor to the
present Marquis of Twceddnle. As the
bridal party was on its way to the church
the magician plucked a pear from a tree
hard by and gave it to his dnughter as
her dowry, informing her that so long as
she and her descendants preserved it, so
long should they prosper. The pear was
in consequence carefully preserved na the
precious palladium of the family, whose
fortunes, during the next 300 yenrs, rapidly advanced, John Uny, in 1478, being
raised to the peerage of Scotlnnd as
Baron Uny of Yester. He was succeeded
hy his son John, second bnron, who was
succeeded by his Bon John, third baron,
whose dnughter, Jean, was married to
George Itrouu, laird of Colstoun, served
heir 1004.
The "Warlock penr," which again played the part of dowry, thus pnssed to her
descendants, the Hrouus of Colstoun, who
derived their pedigree from the ancient
kiuga of France. In 1080 Patrick Broun
of Colstoun wns created a baronet of Nova Scotia and was succeeded by his soa
George, second barouct of Colstoun, in
Whose time the pear, hitherto cnrefully
cherished and which to all appearances
wns aa fresh as when plucked, began, in
accordnnce with the warning of the en-
chnnter, to exert its Influence mnlignunt-
ly. Sir George wns married to the Lady
Elizabeth Mackenzie, daughter of George,
first enrl of Cromurtie (the famoui Viscount Tiirbut of yueen Anne's reign),
and she, not content with merely beholding the pear, longed to taste it, and, as in
the case of a remote ancestress, the temptation was too strong to be resisted.
Authorities differ as to whether the Lady Elizabeth reully bit the pear or merely   dreamed   bIis   did.    Debrett,   in   his
Baronetage, states that she dreamed she
bit It, but the late Sir Richard Brown, I
Bnrt., author of an elaborate MS. history!
of the house of Colstoun, says distiuctly !
thut she bit it, mid it is certain that there
arc murks of teeth in the penr, which Is |
now hard ns a stone.   Whether the bits '
was real or imaginary, the fact remains
that almost Immediately the family for- [
tunes began to wane.   Sir George Broun
wns soon afterward drowned In theTyiie,
_T18, and the  I.ody  Elizabeth only es-1
cape, by her clothes bearing her up in
the water.  Sir George died without heirs
mule, and the title, which was to heirs
mule   general,    became   dormant    nnd
though subsequently assumed by a collateral brunch nguin became dormant in
1770, and ao remained for more than 50
years, until after proceedings, very interesting, a young cudct of a distant branch
proved  his father to be entitled to the
bnronetcy and wob accordingly declared
heir. Tlie entire estates had passed nwuy,
and,   together   with   the   mngic   cornuc,
were become tho property of the family
of   Itumscy,   earl   of   Dnlbousic,   whose
predecessor had married tlie niece of tlie
unfortunate   Sir   George   Broun   above
mentioned.
In a silver box, with a strung casket,
BOfe under locks and bolts, the magic cornuc now reposes, in the custody of Lord
Dalhoiisie, nnd one can readily understand how highly tlie relic is prized and
how jealously preserved by the present
possessor.���Chicago News.

SOME LITTLE KNOWN FACTS.
There nre scores of places In this country where only oue rn.il comes every 14
days.
Not 0 per cent of all the women in
America spend as much money as $50 per
year on their clotheB.
Only 18 per cent of all the families in
America employ domestic help, lenving
82 per cent without even one servant.
Out of 12,000,000 American familus
the income of 4.000,000 of these families
is less than $400 each per yenr, nnd the
Incomes of nearly 80 per cent of the en
tire nuniher are less than $1,000 each per
year.
If all the dressmakers known to exist
In America worked 24 hours of each day
for n whole year without stopping for
sleep or nionls, they would still be able to
make only one dross apiece for less than
seven-eighths of the women of America.
Ask the average person where the central point of nrco Is in the United States,
and he will fix it somewhere in Illinois.
Tell him it Is nearer San Francisco, nnd
he will be incredulous until he remembers
thnt Alaska is within the boundaries of

LAVINA   GROUP.
John McICane Talks of a Promising
l.ardo Property.
Mr. John McKane, President of the
Lnvina-Huttc Consolidated, Ltd.,
whieh is operating upon the Lavina
group which is situated a few miles
from Argeuta in the Lardo district,
arrived iu Nelson today from a visit
to tlie property. The company has a
good force of men at work and the
developing of the property is Mjeing
pusued with great, energy. Mr. McKane states that the amount of work
done at the property will amount to
over 1,200 feet and the property it
showing up exceedingly well.
At presentjthe work is being centered upon a tunnel which is heing run
to tap the lead at the 400-foot level.
This tunnel will be over 450 feet in
length when completed. A shaft has
also been sunk to the depth of 80 feet,
and has followed an exceedingly rich
vein that distance. The quartz ledge
is il feet wide, and distinctly defined
by slate walls. Big showings are being made as the development work
proceeds on each of the claims. A
shipment of ore from the property has
already heen made to the Hall Mines
smelter of this city, and the returns
netted the company, after paying all
expenses,840 per ton in gola and silver
values.
Anothei shipment is about to be
made to the Kaslo Sampling Works
which is being done to give the ore a
thorough testing.
Not only this property, but all the
properties of that district are showing
up well, but the section would undoubtedly be further advanced if it
had the accommodation of a railroad.
It is rumored now that arrangements
are being made to send a surveying
party into that district, and undoubtedly when spring opens the transport
ation accommodation in that section
will be equal to any in Hritish Columbia.
The company, also needs a good
wagon or sleigh road to the property.
The Provincial Government has allowed 43,000 for this purpose, and it is
stated that the company will duplicate
this amiun; and with the 80,000, a
very good road will be constructed.
Mr. McKane stated that he thought
that the company would thoroughly
develop the property before they started to ship on a large scale,therefore it
is probable that it will be sometime
next season before the trail is constructed. The force of men engaged
at the property will continue development vigorously all winter.
Adjoining the Lavina group is the
Lost Mountain property, upon which
much developmeut work has'been done
and the property is showing up in
good shape. The company is now
driving a tunnel on the Giant claim
and they have a considerable body of
clean ore in sight. The property is
meeting with much satisfaction with
the directors, and they have decided
to push the development   all   winter.
RAILWAY TO FORT STKELE.
Will Incorporate.���Krom Crawford
Ray to Fort Steele.
The last issue of the Hritish Columbia Gazette, contains the information
that: "Messrs. Whealer and Martin
will apply for un aet to incorporate a
company to build a railway from a
point at or near Crawford Hay, Kootenay Lane, the Crawford Creek and St.
Mary's River valleys to Fort Steele,
East Kootenay. " This road will undoubtedly run over the route which
was surveyed for the H. C. Southern,
which originally intended to run to
Crawford's Hay, but the route was
abandoned owing to the steep grade
to the summit to the Hay which is
something over r>,()00 feet in 17 miles.
Should the incorporators of the road
mean business, and the road con
structed, it will open up a mineral
Held of vast extent,and he of incalculable benefit to F'ort Steele aud the
tributary country. It has been suggested that the (.ireat Northern may
be baoking this enterprise. If such
iB the case, there will be no delay in
construction and instead of one railroad Kort Steele may have two.
REMARKABLE   RECOVERY.
With Jugular Vein and Windpipe Cut
George Westall Lives.
Vancouver, B. C., Nov. 12.���George
Westall, who was stabbed twice in
the neck in Westminster by a sailor
named Wood, in a drunken row, will
live in spite of the fact that one
wound penetrated the windpipe, and
the other slit the jugular vein downwards. Westall's remarkable recovery is due to his having a magnificent
constitution.
Wood, who is -111 years of age, bears
a clean record, as a quiet inoffensive
man. lie remembers nothing of the
stabbing and explains the matter by
saying that he supposes he was mad
drunk and was not responsible for his
action.

a general glass of Robert Brown'b
