Loudon, Feb. 8.���Public attention
bas again been turned to South Africa
by the despatch of reinforcements
and the publication of Lord Roberts'
mail despatches. Humors have been
circulated that Mr. Chamberlain had
reconsidered his South Afiican policy,
and was contemplating a round table
conference witb John Morley and Sir
William Vernon Harcourt, and the
recall of Sir Alfred Mllner. The Daily
Mail, however, says lt is able to assert on Mr. Chamberlain's authority,
that tbe whole story is a lubrication
and that the government retains the
most absolute confidence in Sir Alfred Milner.
"Mr. Chamberlain flatly denies,"
Bays the Daily .Mail, "that he has had
any communication either verbal or
written with any member of the opposition on the subject of the war."
I Lord Roberts' despatches  in the pa
nel's are not   regarded   as giving   any
further elucidation  of  the oonduot of
1 tbe war, but tbey are   interesting   as
proving that throughout the campaign he never had sufficient men,
horses, or supplies to cover such a
vast field of operations.
Looking at all the circumstances,
Lord Roberts says the campaign is
unique in the annals of war, and pays
tne nlghest tribute to the gallantry
and worth of the troops, declaring
tbat "no finer force ever took the field
under the British flag."
There is a general idea that, the despatches have suffered considerable
excision at the bands of the war office.
They do not throw any further light
on the summary retirement of General
Colvllle, or any other matters regarding which the public is anxious to
The appearance of bubonic plague
at Capetown seems likelv to add to the
difficulties of the situation. The authorities there have decided upon a
wholesale extermination of rats.
Should the disease spread, it will
necessitate changes in the military
Today, Sir Alfred Milner makes
another earnest appeal to employers
to allow as many men as possible
to enroll in the colonial mounted defence force. From Delagoa Bay it is
reported that the British bave occupied Ermelo and Carolina which until
recently were Boer depots. The Boers
held up a Natal mail train near Vluk-
fontein. The few soldiers on bourd
exhausted their cartridges and the
Boers then robbed the passengers, afterwards allowing the train to proceed.
Lord Roberts' detailed mall despatches ranging from February 6th
to November 15lh, 1B00, were gazetted
this afternoon. They fill 157 quarto
pages and make up the official history
of the war, although without throwing new light upon several inteiesting
disputed subjects Buch as the Sannas
Post affair.
Hundreds of officers, non-commissioned offlceis and'men are favorably
mentioned, including Lord Kitchener, who is referred to in warm terms.
Sir Bedvers Buller comes in for criticism. The first despatch undertakes
to "give a concise account of the
state of affairs In South Africa on my arrival on January 10." It describes the foroes aB
much scattered. "1 decided to leave
General Holler with a free hand in
Natal, but otherwise to remain on the
defensive until reinforcements arrived
and until the transport had been organized." Hefound no transport corps
existing. The colonial forces had not
been sufficiently used, and Cape Colony was restless.
Writing from Jacobsdal, on Febru
ary 16, Lord Roberts says: "General
Buller on Februaiy 6 wired that he
bad pierced the enemy's lines but that
to drive the enemy across the Lady-
smith plain would cost from 20,000 to
30,000 men. I replied that he must
relieve Ladysmith even at that cost.
Buller telegraphed on February 9
that he was not strong enough to relieve Ladysmith without reinforcements, and regarded the operation in
which he was enguged as impracticable. I replied that my instructions
must hold."
In the course of a sketch of the capture of General Oronje, the occupation
of Bloemfontein and the long wait
there, he wrote: "The enemy knew
exactly.how we were situated and had
accurate information ns to the coudi-
iton of our supplieH transports, artillery and cavalry horses, nnd they regained courage."
Tbe marches to Johannesburg and
Pretoria were uneventful as described
by Lord Roberts, his chief concern
being to provision the array. "We
were practloally living from hand to
mouth." he wrote, "and at times had
not even one day's rations to the
He finds that no specific blame can
be attached to Colonel Broadwood in
the Sannas Post affair as "the disaster was mainly due to the failure of the
patrol at Boesman's kop to warn their
comrades that an ambush was prepared." Tbe officer who was pluced in
command of the patrol is not mentioned.
Writing from Johannesburg on November 15 he said : "With the occupation of Kooroatipoort and the dispersal of Louis Botha's army the organized resistance of the two republics
may be said to huve ceased, but tnere
still remains much for the army in
South Africa to do to meet conditions
of guerrilla warfare with forces broken up into small columns and operating over an area laiger than France,
Germany and Austria combined."
Incorporated with the despatches
are reports from subordinate commanders, including the narrative of
General Baden-Powell, who says the
newspaper correspondents gave him
much trouble, as the enemy received a
great deal of information bb to our
circumstances in Mafeking from the

Two of Them Sue For Libel and Other
London.. Feb. 8.���The King's bench
division of the high court of justice
today found in favor of Victor Michael
Ruthven, described as an ex-priest, in
a libel suit brought ugainst Emil de
Bom, a Catholic priest, for circulating
a leaflet averring that Ruthven's lectures were indecent. Forty shillings
damages were awarded. The court
found in favor of De Bom, respecting
the publication of Ruthven's record,
copied from the Cleveland Universe,
of March 1, 1805.
The Hev. J. G. Paton, a Presbyterian missionary of New Hebrides, testified that Ruthven's real name was
Riordsn and that he had given evidence against him In America where
he was sentenced to a year's imprisonment for swindling In 1895,a man well
known in America.
The court also rendered a verdict in
favor of the Rev. Bernard Spink, who
was sued for libel by the Rev. Tuber-
ville Cory Thomas.of Chicago, formerly a pastor at Ishperaing, Mich., on
the ground of having imputed immoral conduct.

Business Men Have Been Dealing With
Manila, Feb. 8.���Since the arrest of
Theodore Cabranza and D. M. Carman,
a former Californian, who are charged with furnishing supplies to aid the
insurgents. Evidence has been rapidly
developing tending to show that not
the Carman company alone, but many
business men in Manila have been
having relations with the   insurgents.
The secret service officers today
brought from Pagsanjan, three natives, members of the general Cailles insurgent committee in that district.
The papers found on them were so
personally incriminating that they
were led to divulge damaging information concerning Carman and others
not arrested.
One of them acknowledged he wus
Carman's partner in insurgent trading. The police learned that Fabellu
an ex-president, and an ully uf Carman's in his Lagune de Bay dealings
has $10,000 in insurgents money deposited in the Spanish Filipino bunk
at Manila. The officers confiscated
this money. Manager Balbaso, of th 3
bank, who had loaned Carman considerable money without security is
under suspicion. New batches ot incriminating evidence were received
by the provost marshal   today.
General Young, the commander of
Northwestern Luzon, is to return to
the United States. General Bell, tbe
provost marshal of Manila, will succeed him.
Buila Pest, Feb. 8.���In the lower
house of the Diet today, a member of
the opposition, Endroy, having charged the minister of justice with foic-
ing the judicial authorities at Marosh-
Vasaihely to support the ministerial
candidate in tbe election, the minister declared tbat Endroy's statements

Vancouver,    Feb.    8.���Vancouver   is
Buffering from a log   famine   us   well
as a   vexatious   scarcity   of   potatoes
and hard   coal.    On the 10th of   February a   steamer- is   due in Vancouver
to load lumber for a foreign port; the
mills will have difficulty in completing
her eargo. Owing to the slack demand
and   poor   prices     for   logs,   coupled
with a long stretch of wet.cold wenth-
er, loggers became disgusted all along
the const and closed down their cnmpB.
As   shipping   rates    were   high   und
charters   few   and far   between, local
mill men were unable  to give the loggers any   encouragement, but realised
when the supply of logs ran   out   that
they were unprepared   to meet the demand   for lumber   made   upon   them.
In   the   meantime   American   loggers
crosBed   the   line   and   started io log,
and   as  there   is  no duty on  logs  u
large business   i��   being done by   the j
Americans   who   rnft   the   log*)    into
Washington state.    The principal log-1
gers now doing business here are Mul- j
Iny and Larkin who own two mills in
Washington   state, and   Mr.     Larkin I
who   is. superintending   the work   ifl j
steadily   shipping large ^quantities of !
logs to Blaine.    In   the   meantime lo-1

And ad. in The  Miner want column
always brings results, ,
E. Nelson Fell, manager of the Athabasca mine, was  in   the  city yester-
i day on business. Matters are progressing smoothly at tho mine.and the mill
runs for the past   two months, which
| wil be issued shortly, will be well up
| to the standard of (lie  past year. The
' cyanide   plant at the mine   is   almost
completed   and   shiuld    be in   steady
operation within   She   next fortnight.
The stump mill has! been closed   down
| for a duy or two   while the   necessary
'collections with the cyanide   building
were made. The  final  details   of  the
j transfer of   the Exchequer property to
! the Athabascu mine, Ltd,   are  understood to be complete and the Athabas-
i cu shares due the owners of Exchequer
stock   on account of   the transfer will
liKely   be   distributed   within a short
time.    While   no   announcement   has
been made on the subject it is thought
that nothing will be done   in   the direction of resuming work at   the   Exchequer until spring when the weather conditions will   be more favorable.
The first step after the resumption   of
work on the   property   will   probably
be the erection of  a  tramway to convey ore to the Athabasca   mill   where
the   product   will   be   treated   by the
Same process used in the reduotion   of
Athabasca ores, a  preliminary stamping operation, with the cyanide plant
for handling   the   concentrates.    It is
believed tlmt  the   Exchequer ore will
be amenable to this process.
Excellent reports are to hand from
the Creole group on Lemon creek,own
ed by P. W. George of Nelson and
partners. The property is located a
couple of miles up stream from Lemon
creek siding and includes four claims.
A well defined ledge crosses the
group carrying oxidized tellurium in
wbich the values frequently run high.
A tunnel has been driven on tbe vein
for 500 feet exposing a strong lead.
Assays have been had from surface
specimens as high as ��15.! in gold and
70 ounces of silver, while in the tunnels specimens bave been taken which
ran $585 in gold and $102 in silver.
The ownerB bavn had a number of offers to bond but up to date bave retained their interests. Some 40 tons
of high gr; vie ore are now on the
dump and it is possible that a trial
shipment may be made shortly.
Messrs. Procter and Fishburn returned last night from Blairmore
where they spent most of the week In
going over their coal property. The
result of their inspection of the work
done since their previous visit was
eminently satisfactory and both gentlemen are thoroughly satisfied that
in the Blairmore coal fields they have
the biggest ooal proposition in the
west. Sir J. Gait,who Ib prominently
identified with the Lethbrldge mines
visited Blairmore early in the week
with a party of friends aboard a special train, and spent a day going over
the ground.
Fifteen men are at work on the
property now, and the operations are
of un exploratory nature, designed
to determine with some measure of
accuracy the exact extent of the
scums. Tinee tunnels ure being driven, all of which uie in solid ooal, the
quality of which appears to improve
as the work gets beyond tbe point
where thu elements have reached the
deposits. To further establish the
widtli of the various seams, Mr. Fish-
burn laid out a crosscut tunnel to
start on one side of the hill and crosscut ull the known seams. As the veins
are close together the task of oross-
culting will necessitate only a comparatively short tunnel.
Ab already stated the work now un-
derwuy is largely for exploration purposes but us ull the tunnels are in coal
a considerable amount of the product
will be mined in the ordinary course
of development. It is proposed to
ship on a small scale first, probably
live cars per day, certainly not less. If
worked for commercial purposes solely the property would produee 20 cars
per day at the present time, but the
owners prefer to confine their attention largely to development for tne
present at least. Bunkers and screens
for handling the coal are to be erected
at once, the site chosen being at tbe
iiMnn.li of the one crosscut tunnel.
From here to the railroad is an easy
grade, tho contract rate for delivering
coul at the track being 00 cents per
ton. Eventually bunkers on a very
large scale will be erected, the management having in view a daily output of not less than 100 cars.
Several hundred pounds of specimens were brought down from the
mine for exhibition and test purposes.
The samples include steaming, coking and blacksmith's coal. The latter
is of special interest Inasmuch a* good
blackmail's coal is difficult  to secure
and is in considerable demand. The
English article now in the market sells
at $2(i per ton, and blackiniths in tbe
Blairmore district state that the product from one of the seams on the
Blairmore ground Is equal in every
respect to the English coal. This
promise to be a strong factor in the
future of the property. A quantity
of the blackmith's coal will be
brought to Nelson for testing about
the 20th Instant.
The owners have in view tbe establishment of coke ovens at the property. The demand for coke is lame
and will grow constantly as the smelting industry extends.

Big Cash Offer From   English
cate May Be Taken.
Vancouver, Feb. 8.���The Britannia
Copper syndicate held their annual
meeting this week,over 80 per cent, of
the stock being represented. The
three-tenths Interest held by the original owner, Mr. A. J.Boscowit of Victoria, was absorbed by the company
and Mr. Boscowit taken into the company. This property is rather famous
owing to the fact that so many oilers
ranging from half a million dollars
cash to a mllli*. - and a half dollars In
cash und.equivuleiit in stock huve been
refused In spite of the faet that the
proper' v haB not been worked to any
extent,and the tremendous copper-gold
showing is all on the surface, one side
of a high blnff being all in ore. During tbe progress of the meeting three
more offers were made for the property. One from the Elliott syndicate
of San Francisco, one from a local
syndicate led by J. II. Adums of
Butte, Montana, and one from the
Valentine-Scott syndicate of London.
The latter offer The Miner correspondent is in a position to state positively, was ��160,000 cash, pnyable to
the Britannia mine representative in
person on his arrival in London it his
earliest convenience. It is thought
altogether probable that the company
will accept this cash offer and the
claims will pass Into the hands of a
wealthy syndicate with unlimited
means who are prepared to spend at
once a million dollars in development.
The properties are situated on Howe
Sound, but a short distance from Vancouver.

Ghat With F. E. Hobbs. Mechanical Superintendent
of the C.P.R.
Nelson Will Be the Headquarters for All, Engine
"The C. P. P.. power in the Kootenay and Boundary is today in perfect
condition and cannot be surpassed on
any division of the system for effec-
tivenesB. Every locomotive is in first
class working order and can be relied
upon to the utmost degree of its power in any emergency," Ib the very satisfactory summary of the situation
given by F. E. Hobbs, mechanical
superintendent for the Pacific division. Mr. Hobbs is one of the very
busiest railroad men who ootne into
Nelson. On his shoulders is the re-
ponsibility of 84 locomotives, not to
mention the big repair shops ut Revelstoke where 115 mechanics are employed.
Mr. Hobbs has been in thia province
since 1880, however, and has grown up
with the country. More than this he
has kept in advance of the times and
has advanced ideas of the future of
the inland. Ilia statement regarding
the condition of the 24 locomotives in
use in the Kootenay and Boundary
division means much to those who are
aware of the conditions prevailing
here. The sharp curves and heavy
grades Incidental to railroading in
the districts specified shorten the usefulness of a locomotive by one-third
in comparison with the conditions in
other portions of the province and to
have the entire 24 engines in perfect
working order at one time is a record
of whicli the C. P. R. men are pardonably proud.
The mechanical department bas
to made marked progress in the district
operated from Nelson during the last
few months. At the present time there
are 15 locomotives on the Boundary
division and nine on this side of the
Columbia. One of the spokes in the
wheel of progress has been the building of the new roundhouse, turntable
and coal pockets at the depot,the ideas
for Yfbich'were drafted by Mr. Hobbs.
He regards the facilities *iow available as the best In the province and
expresses the opinion that the exigencies of the service are provided for
the next two years, at the expiru-
tion of which time the company will
undoubtedly be compelled to make
further provision by reason of the
additional business which will undoubtedly have grown up in the interim. The coal pockets, which will
shortly be in operation at the yards
are a special hobby of the master mechanic and their usefulness cannot be
contradicted. The pockets are arranged to hold quantities of coal ranging
from two tons upwards. When an engineer wants fuel he bucks his "mill"
to the pocket containing the desired
amount, releases the trap door in the
bottom of the pocket und couIb his
engine in three minutes instead of a
couple of hours as wub formerly the
case. Coal pockets have been erected
at Eholt and at Smelter Junction
where the scheme operates most successfully In saving time and labor.
An interesting change has been
made in connection witli the servico
on the Rossland hill by the introduction of the Shay engine, No. Ill, to
take the pluee of the ordinary locomotives formerly used on that grade.
The Shay, with its remarkable departures from the ordinary stile of construction, has done splendid service.
Witb it a load of 285 tons is hauled
on the hill in tho same running time
occupied by the best engine on the division of ordinary build In hauling
132 tons, in addition to which the
Shay economizes in coal, water and
labor. The success of No. Ill on the
IloBslund hill has been Bo marked that
the management  proposes to displace
the Moguls now in use on the Kicking Horse Pass grades with locomotives of the Shay pattern. This will
bo interesting rending to railroadmen
as it is probably thu first time the
statement lias appealed in press.
According to Mr. Hobbs the com
pletion of the bridge across the Columbia will bo of prime importance
to Nelson. In the rlrflt Jplnee it will
hrlng about the construction here of
a thoroughly equipped machine shop
capable of handling all the repairs for
the 24 or more locomotives whicli will
then be running on the two divisions, To handle, this work, a considerable stall' of skilled mochunics will
be required, anil practically all the
work now going to Kcelstoke will
be done in this city. Tho plans for
the building arc already decided upon.
It will be located immediately behind and adjoining the round house
to which it will be connected by two
trackB. Furthermore Nelson will be
headquarters for all the locomotive
crews on tbo two divisions, except the
Bossland hill crew. This will locate
more than twice the number of highly
paid railroad men In Nelson than are
now residing here, a fact which will
materially benefit the city.
Mr. Hobbs goes ncross the river
tonight on business and returns to
Revelstoke in a day or two.
How a  Peace  Envoy Was
Shot Down in Gold
Gen. Dewet Was Present and
Gave the Gowardly
Bloemfontein, Feb. 2.���(Saturday)
���An influential burgher gives some
details regarding the treatment of
the peace envoys who went to General
Dewet's laager. It seems that they
were ordered to remain with a cart
until the mules arrived as the Boers
were breaking laager in the expectation of a British attack in the morning. Commandant Kroneiuau came
up and asked them why they had not
inspanned. Norgendael replied that
they had been ordered to wait for the
mules, whereupon the lioer commandant immediately sjamboked Morgen-
dael on the head and face and said lie
felt inclined to shoot him.
General Dewet coining up at the moment said, "Why dou't you shoot
him?" At this Froneman tired at the
envoy who died of the wound. Mueller and_another envoy were sjamboked

The Nelson Miner
Published   Every   Morning  Except  Monday
���by tuk���
LiMiTBn Liability.
With the announcement that Mr.
C. A. Gregg has assumed the editorial
control of the Nelson Miner something may appropriately be said regarding the future policy of the paper. A strenuous endeuvor will be
made to make The Miner a newspaper
worthy of Nelson and the Kootenays.
It will have but one mission���the
publication of all legitimate news
and the exercising of every effort to
advance the interests of the district
in which it is published. Nelson ib
big enough and Kootenay important
enough to support in an excellent
fashion a thoroughly up-to-date newspaper. But it must be a newspaper���
not an organ.
Like everything else, running a
newspaper is a business proposition.
The Miner can only hope to succeed
by observing that truism���and it intends to do so. It thinks it can adequately represent Nelson and Kootenay and hopes that its efforts in that
direction may meet with the recognition and support at the hands of tbe
public which they deserve.
All that is asked is that The Miner
may be given "a fair field and no
favor." If in tbe past there has
been a laxity of persistent adhesion
to the broad policy above outlined,
shown in its conduct, the promise is
now given that there will be no cause
for complaint on that score in the

The Miner and its new editor now ask
for a friendly reception at the hands
of the people whose sympathy and support they hope to merit and receive.

extraordinary compound of opposites,

whose fortunes we delighted to follow. It is more us a lover, however,
he is now presented to us. Kings muy
be lovers as well us us more common
mortals, and this one excelled in his
expciience of the heart as be did in so
many other things. In his creation
of Jehave Mr. Hewlett has introduced
us to one of the noblest of women,
one who will ruuk high among the
best whom fiction Iiub given us. If lovers have a Heaven of their own, she
has long been exalted as a saint. It is
said that all the world loves a lover;
theie will be few readers of Richard
Yea-and-Nay, therefore, who will
not love Jehuvc. With its other merits, the book is unusually close to historical fact in the events which infuse
so much life into it. For sale by

An interesting circumstance in connection with the growth and progress of Nelson is the fact that there
is no lack of appreciation shown by
the people of the coast and elsewhere
at the marvellous record'' made by the
metropolis of the Kootenays since
its municipal birth. Go where one
may on the coast and at distant outside points and inquire about Nelson
and the answer is immediately forth-!
coming "Nelson is all right; it is a
fine city���perhaps the most progressive
of its size in all Canada. " This is aB it
should be. Nelson thoroughly deserves
every word of praise which has ever
been uttered regarding it. Its business men are progressive and enterprising; its civic equipment up-to-date
in every particular and a credit not
only to Nelson but to Western Canada.
That it has a splendid future is admitted by all; and when that high
position among the large cities of the
west which awaits it has been attained, there will be no disposition to deny
that it lesulted mainly owing to the
pluck and enterprise shown by its citizens in the early days of its history.

The coast cities are to witness a
lively scramble among transportation
companies next season for the Yukon
traffic. It has been officially announced that the C. P. R has purchased
two very line steamers to be operated
on the route from Victoria and Vancouver to Hkagway. With the steamer
equipment it obtained in the purchase
of the Canadian Pacific Navigation Co.
the C. P. R. will now be In splendid

Lord Kitchener has taken the trouble to deny the Btory circulated by a
South African editor that he Issued
instructions to his troops to take no
prisoners. Tbe yarn was obviously a
base calumny on the face of it. as all
who have Knowledge of Kitchener's
splendid reputation well know, but
perhaps it is well that the unscruplous
individual who printed the story
should be arrested and punished for
his misdemeanor. Kitchener's task Is
hard enough without his being continually subjected to lying statements
by enemies in the camp.

During the last week Rheo was obliged to turn away many who sought
interviews and so has decided to prolong her wait in Nelson. Her success
speaks for itself. Ilor character delineations are correct and her prophesies made in many different parts
of the world have come true in numberless cases. It is not necessary
to canvass at length the foundation
upon which this knowledge of future
events is based. Observation of the
repeated occurrence of particular
marks or signs in the hand has served to furnish the data for making predictions. Careful examination,through
identification und generalization
weie the processes by which the laws
of scientific prediction were arrived

Why is it that I cannot read
like others at night without
getting my eyes tired and
inflamed ? Why ? Because
your eyes are defective, and
unless you wear glasses that
will correct the error the defect will become chronic and
incurable. Ninety-five per cent of eye trouble can be cured
by wearing glasses.
