THE DIVORCE  QUESTION.
Bishop Doane Makes a Plea For No Re-
Marriage After Divorce.
Albany, N. Y., Nov. 15.-Bishop
Doane, in bis address to the Episcopal
diocesaii conventicn today dwolt at
length upon the divorce question.
Speaking of divorce he said in part:
"I am most urgent that we should
consider the duty of giving a tone to
society in the hope that when it can
be induced to set under its ban offences
against God'p law, there will be a
power at work far more efficient to arrest the, evil than can he measured by
its good influence upon those who aro
determined to sin. Speaking practically, I beg you to consider whether
the exigency of the social crisis does
not demand the heroic treatment of
absolute und unvarying prohibition.
"If this church can by any language
or by any enactment of Canon or rubric rid herself of ull responsibility for
remarriage after divorce, she will have
set np thn barrisr against the full tide
of the desecration of marriage, of the
degrading of family of the deterioration of the home, which must turn the
cur.'ent aside until it linns its way
where itjbelongs, into the se.vage, and
not into tbe sources of supply."

reaching episodes in modern history.
It does not, however, imply hostility
to any other great power. "

WHITE'S REINFORCEMENTS.
London,    Nov.    15.���The     troopship
I Ha warden Cnstle, with the second battalion of the Royal Irish Fusiloers has
! arrived at Durban, bringing   the nam-
1 her of reinforcements that have landed
! there up to   5,227 .    Five of the troop-
1 ships are now en route from Capetown
I to Durban.    The   total   reinforcements
'thnt have arrived in South Africa since
Friday, are   10,000   men,   chiefly foot,
1:1,000 horses and mules, three flatteries
of  field   artillery    and   a   number  of
quick firing   Msxim   guns.    Tha   fact
that the Britannic   has   proceeded   for

that General   Buller   is satisfied   that
the troops which have already landed,
or   are   now   on the way   to  Durban,
will be sufficient to carry out bis plans
for the relief of Ladysmith.
Capetown, Nov. 15.���An undated
dispatch from Mafeking received by
a runner via Magalapye, Wednesday,
Nov. 8, says that today all is quiet,
but we havo been bombarded pretty
heavily all the week. On Friday
night Captain Fitz Clarence and Lieutenant Swinburn, with "D" squadron
of tbe Protectorate regiment made n
magnificent bayonet charge upon the
Boers entrenchments driving them
from their position and bayonetting a
number of Boers, who lost heavily.
The charge was most gallant aud determined. Tbo party could not hold
the trenches and lost six men killed,
two prisoners and nine wounded in
their retirement. We expect a general
nttmk tomorrow. The bombardment
has been most ineffectual. Every one
remains under shell proof cover. So
fnr the shells hnvn only wounded oue
nan. The ,<nemy ii lining one 94-
ponnder howitzer and six other guns
from seven (0 1-l-poundeiH. Tbe town
is most cheerful, and determined to resist nil attacks to the utmost.
Only 55 of "D" squadron weie engaged in the attack, though they weie
assisted hy 'he flunking fire nf 'he
lt"s of thi Cnpe Pi'bce. The Peers
.. ir'n n desperate attempt to drive back
the British and their entrenchments
orieiied n terrific fire in every direction,
the flash of rifles lighting up the entire position A bail of bullets rattled
on the roofs of the houses.
TTpnn completing a oircuit of tbo
Boer front nnd the lino of trenches,
the British withdrew iu independent
lines of retreat covered bv the flank
fire from the Cope Police.
Thn Boers continued to fire vollevsat
intervals during the night. The Boer
los�� is estimated nt one hundred killed
nnd wonnded. The Boer commander
informed an officer in oharge of a flag
of truce that he estimated the attacking squadron at 1,000 nnd, he added,
bo wns nut awnre that the British
foices at Mafeking were so large.
The Boers were observed from Mafeking burying the dead all day long.
ACCOUNT OF THE FIGHT.
London, Nov. 10. ���A dispatcn tn The
Daily Mail   from   Mafeking,   sent   by
way of Magalapye, because the runners
sent southward were unable In traverse
the Boer lines gives nn interesting no-
count of the fighting during the last
week in October. Tbe correspondent
says:
"After the failure to rush tbe town,
General Cronje had recourse to the
tactics employed during Iho siege of
Potcherstroom in 1HHH, making an advance to the lown by n succession of
trenches in echelon Such n move bad
been anticipated by un for sumo time
and for that reason thero hnve been
sent oat parties to worry the Boers
incessantly bj night attacks. Those
tucties tlm enemy disliked, hut he contented himself with a daily shelling
fire, wliich exposed him to little personal risk. Then Colonel Baden-Powell played bis trump card by sending
out FitzClnrouce's party to worry the
occupants of the trenches. The little
force stole out silently in the dnrk-
ness. Not; a shot was llred, and the
men fixed bayonets, creeping nil her
than walking along the velili.ninl gradually approached the chief Boer position, near the nun conrse. Then as
they closed in, thero wns 11 shrill
screech, it wns FitzClarence's signal
for the onslaught. A ringing British
cheer, which the listeners back in
camp  caught  np,   when   the dining
party dashed into Ihe trenches. Thero
wus a feniful ntrnggle, the attacking
force   catching   and   bayonetting   the
, Boers under the tarpaulins where tbey
;crouched, crying for mercy. At least
��� fifty bayonets got to work and the
! havoc tbey wrought was terrible.
For ]ust a moment there was no systematic return fire; but then a perfect
storm of bullets poured in from the
trenches to the rear. Again Fitz
Clarence's whistle sounded. It was
"Cense fire and scatter homeward."
Tin British forces scattered silently,
crossing back under tho furious fire in
the darkness to the appointed rendezvous, where the roll was called. Colonel Baden-Powell met nnd congratulated Captain Fitz Clarence and his
men upon their splendid work, saying
that ir was n heavy price to pay, but
that the Boers had to be stopped making title trenches within range of the
town. The members of the party are
now tho envy nnd pride of the garrison. Even the Boer Commander
'���-.���:':.. xnrcsied his admiration of the
attack, and added that ho would take
Mafekiug ere long, for he meant to do
one thing or the other.
Sunday passed quietly, tbe volunteer
hand olaying iu the Women's laager.
All Sunday uiuht tho Boers poured
a rifli lire into the town. It wns set
u in. afti r dinner on Sunday evening,
when Col' nel BiMen-Powpll hoisted a
red lamp on the Communage which
was the signal of Captain EitzChir
choc's night attack. The ruso answered splendidly. Tho moment the light
appeared tbe Boers opened firo aud
their fnsilude lusted the whole night
through.
"There had beou a (rcmenduous
waste of ammunition. Indeed it is estimated that ,11),000 rounds of ball cartridges were wasted on the occasion of
flic night attack on the Boer trenches.
Donble rations hnve been served ont to
the nieu, who are under shelter, so ns
ton he on the safe side if the Boers
should sweep tho town by a lorn; range
rifle fire. The garrison is bangiug on
finely.   Colonel Baden-Powell has the
fullest confidence iu everybody, nud
especially iu the matter of implicit
Obedience to the order to bold thu fire
until th Boers get to close range.
"Tho shelling continued all Sunday
at intervals. About 4 o'clock in the
afternoon, Geuernl Cronje sent in u
line "f truce, giving Mafeking a Inst
chance to surrender at the 11th hour.
While tho flag was receiving attention,
the heavy bombardment continued."
The dispatch tben   describes General
Cronje's great attack  of   Mojdny, tbe
details of which have already been
cabled from Colonel Baden-Powell's
offioial despatches.
"Tho end came," says the correspondent, "after five hours fighting.
Tbo enemy retired, being heavily beaten for all time so far as Mafeking is
concerned. It was the hottest day of
he siege. The firing was terrific, the
Boers evidently recognizing that the
way into Mafeking, if any, wns by n
kopje which wus gallantly defended by
Colonel Wiilford's.nien. The garrison
is jubilant while tbo Boors have been
hurled back in disorder to their laager,
and will have to content themselves
with a long range bombardment unless
they are strongly reinforced, The enemy lost heavily.
'Five hours after the lighting lino
hnd been rolled back, two wagons went
���lowly along thoir position, picking
nil the dead and Wounded, The kop.10
resimblod a shambles al'tei the light.
All the men wore killed by bullets or
slulls. Tho look ont tower was shot
to pieces, while even the saddles of tbe
bones were fearfully battered. The
whole place was simply smashed up by
the concentrated lire of seven guns and
u thousand rifles.
Capetown, Nov. 10.���Friday.���A
dispatch from Bnlrnvnyo, dated Nov.
B, says an armored tram proceeded
south, close to Machudi, whore 11 culvert was found damaged. The Basuto
police, tbe dispatch adds, report thnt a
party of Boers has been looting und
damaging property.
A Fort Tnli dispatch under date of
Friday, Nov. 8, says there is great activity in the Boer camp south of here.
A reoonnoitering party sent along the
line heard heavy firing in the distance.
A party returned to Colonel Spreek-
ley's camp, on which the enemy was
advancing in force. It was shelled at
midday, stampeding every horse and
mule, but not touching a man. Tbe
Boers number 400. It appears that the
Boers surrounded Bychoster, where a
small nitrty stubbornly resisted, ultimately retiring to the bush aud gaining Fort Tuli An officer and five
troopers are missiug from Spreckley's
forcn, wliich had boon out ou u day's
reoonnoitering trip nnd which had
several skirmishes on returning to

London, Nov. 15.���The Hamburg-
American steamer Putria. Capt. Frob-
lich, Which left New York, November
���1, for Hamburg, and passed tbe Lizard
yesterday, is on file near Dover. All
the passengers wero rescued, and have
arrived at Dover.
Capetown, Nov. 15.���General Lord
Paul Metlnc'ii, of the lirst division.
accompanied by his stuff, went north
this evening by train.
London, Nov 18.���The Times publishes the following dispatch fn m Bul
uwayo, dated Thntsday the 8th : "The
Boers attacked tbo Bechuanu Chief
Khama at Sejika Kop on our side oi
Crocodile River yesterday, and wen
repulsed. Khama is confident and is
working heartily with us. He is supported by 100 men from here. Chief
Lichwe, who was at first loyal, is
thought lo be wavering.
London, Nov. J(i. ���5 a. 111. ���The
most interesting and in fact the* only
nows of the war now comes from the
western frontier, the accounts of Colonel linden-Howell's brilliant exploits
at Mafeking forming quite lively and
encouraging reading. Trench work is
quite novel in Boer tactics, and some
curiosity is evinced as to who may be
directing it and as to what is si ill to
be shown. Nevertheless both Mute-
king nnil Kimberley conditions seem
favorable. 80 far as Natal is concerned the British must possess his soul in
patience and trust to General Buller.
Belated   disputolios   from   Ludysmith.
dated Nov. 7, tell of a languid bombardment and a unlive rumor that the
Basutos are on t'no war path, which
is supposed, according to a coirespondent to have hud the effect of inducing
some of the Orange Freo Statu troops
to abandon tho siege, and to return to
t'leir own territory, and also to be accountable for the slackness of the attempts on tbe Ladysmith defences.
Another dispatch says it is reported
that in tho attack ou the Free State
forces at Dewdrop, the Boers hud iWO
in killed and wounded. If the reports
thut the Free State Burghers are tired
0' the affair and are goiug home shonld
prove true, the fact would be molt important, as their retirement wmld
probably compel General Jouberl to
withdraw northward, The fact tbat
the Boers are entrenched so closely tn
Ladysmith is held in some quarters to
indicnti that they Bre running short of
ammunition for their big gnus.
All General Buller's arrangements
for the advance from Durban, it is
rumored, are practically completed,unci
reports eny it inny be expected in a few
days,
The War Olllce has received several
dispatches relating to military details,
but it is not likely that theso will be
published.    The whereabouts rf   Gen
Continued on Fourth Pago,
London, Nov. 15.���The Russian
steamer Ceres,sighted the Patriu showing signals of distress und demanding
immediate help about 12 miles north
of Hinder lightship. Tho latter was
enveloped in smoke. Putting on full
steam the Ceres soon readied the Pa-
tria and sending 11 boat learned that
Captain Frohliob was in urgent need of
assistance.
The bouts weie got out nnd with
great diffloulty, all the Patria's passengers, numbering 160, were transferred to the Ceres which proceeded
for Dover, where she arrived just before midnight. Francis W. Prescott,
the United States Consul in Dover,
was immediately notified and ho consulted with tbe harbor authorities, who
arranged to send out the harbor tug
Lady Vita, which brought the rescued
ashore. Among the . saved are mnuy
Indies and children as well as six
babes in arms.
Tbe hurry of the rescue was indi-
cated by must of ihem being enveloped in blankets. They were rapidly
distributed among tho hotels or sent
to the Sailor's Home , nud everything
is being dune for their comfort.
According to interviews with some
of the passengi rs, which elicited the
fact that most of them are Amorioans,
who liavi crime for a vacation to Europe, all were otdered on deck nt 0
nCluck Wednesday morning when they
were informed   thai   a disastrous fire
bad broken onl a ng the gem nil <nr-
BO, and    as   the   crew  were unan'.o   to
uustei it, tl aptain said he considered it advisable foi the passengers to
inko to the boats. At thi? lime it wns
evident lhat the lire bud obtained a
thorough hold upon the oiugn. Smoke
und flames were ascending with overpowering force aud causing the gieat-
est alarm. The crew, according to
several passengers, worked like heroes
in their endeavors to keep the'flames
under, but the greol quantity of lin-
seed among tha cargo, nnd tbe oil supplied   by  this, made all their efforts
hopeless. There wus very great excite-
ment among the women and children,
but the example set by the coolness of
Cnptuin Frohlioh and the crew had a
calming effect upon the passengers
generally. The bouts were promptly
got over the side, the crew working as
if they were at drill. The safety of tho
ladies and tho children was the fiist
consideration.
As the lire bud by this time consumed the greater part ot the passengers
belongings, they had tn get into tho
boats ns they bad come up from their
bunks, and some were in very light
raiment, The scene wus a striking
one Willi some touching effects, as
husbands and fathers parted from
wives and children. Although everything was carried onl under the most
trying conditions, thanks to the great
coolness of the captain and crew tbere
was no panic, all tbo fBSiengars being
gotten Into tbe Imats and into two fish
boats said lo belong to Yarmouth,
wliich hud coinu up iu the mountime.
.lust us this Iimi been dieted, a largo
steamer was seen to be making towards
the burning liner. Sho proved to bo
the Oerei, which lirst sent a boat and
then picked up all the pnssoilgers.

"OF DIFFERENT CALIBRE.
Iu his Bath speech Lord Rosebery
said that with Europe antagonistic it
was no time for party wrangling and
party recrimination. "Wo have so
muoh on onr shoulders, " he continued,
"that we cannot at this critical junc
ture afford to waste time in polemical
discussion. I know that that is a
very unpopular doctrine from a party
point of view. (No, no.) Bnt (here
Lord Rosebery raised his anna to convey additional emphasis) I do not care
one jot or one tittle whether it is unpopular or not. (Loud oheers.) When
I think of this little island of ours,
floating, as it were, so lonely in theso
northern seas, viewed with such jealousy, with such hostility, with such
foiled ambition by the great empires of
the world, so friendless amongst nations which count their armies by
embattled millions���wheu I think of
this little island, of the work which it
has undertaken, of the Empire that it
has founded, and which it is detei-
inined to maintain���(loud cheers)���
when I think of this, of our expenditure��� 112 millions a year in a time of
peace-of the high pressure under
which we live, of the responsibilities
which we have undertaken, I confess I
hnve no hestitatiou in recurring to the
opinion of Chatham and saying once
more, 'Be one people, forget everything for the public.' (Cheers.) I do
not care, I do not view with anv dismay or distrust the responsibilities or
the engagements of which I have spoken, so long as we remain a united
people.    As our Shakespeare says:
" 'Naught shall make us me
If England to itself do rest but true.' "
Britons first, then party men. At
a banquet to a Mr. Hebette, at tbe
Windsor Hotel, Montreal, on Monday,
October (I, Mr. Tarte snid: "I return
from France, where I received the care
that French science can give and I re.
turn to Canada more French than ever.
1 am a Minister in a British Government, and I have the right to say that
I am French. But I toll yon this, if
to declare myself a British subject
would prevent mo being French, then
I would refuse to call myself a British
subject. We make 110 threats, as tbo
ballot box is our best defence. We are
happy and free under British institutions, but France is always my dear
country." And the flag of France-is
his dear flag.
Mr. Tartejives np to his sentiment
When it was proposed to send a Canadian regiment to South Africa ho op-
osed it with all his influence, and to
such purpose at first that he induced
the Premier to announce through the
chief organ that it could not be done.
"What have we to do with England's
war in South Africa?" asked the indignant Mr. Tarte, who is French before he is British. Ho hns since discovered that tho Canadian people are of
the opinion that tbey have much to do
with the wars of tho nation, wherever
waged. They are British. They form
a portion of tho Empire, whose intcg
rity they deem it their duty to maintain as fur as lies in thoir power. Mr.
Tarte wonld have the St. Lawrence
Valley reveit to his dear country,
France Between his patriotism and
Lord Rosebery'e there is quite a per-
coptible difference. Tho Miner has no
apologies to make for its frequent references to Mr. Tarte. The subject of sn-
premo moment in the Dominion today
is the retention ot Mr. Tarte us a Cabinet Minister. The Premier who hesitates to dismiss him is not deserving
the oenfidunce of loyal Canadians.
It is said that private advices have
been received nt Vancouver to the
effect that there will be an early session of the Federal Parliament. In
that case the intention to dissolve and
go to the country some time during
the coming winter has been abandoned. The party managers have probably
discovered thnt Mr. Tnite's attitude
with respect to ibe South African contingent wns a great mistake. It has
enabled him to make appeals to the racial prejudices of Quebec, but something more than the Quebec vote is required to gi-e the Government 11 majority. It is not sure that he is meeting with any great degree ol sympathy
from his own countrymen, while there
would appear to bo no doubt that English-speaking Canadians aio highly indignant. Mr. Tarte has spoiled the
game of an early dissolution, which it
was the intention to spring upon the
country.	
The new Minister of Public Works
in the reconstructed Ontario Government, tbe heretofore unknown Mr.
I.atchford of Ottawa, carries South
Roufrow by a handsome majority. But
there is not much iu the figures to give
the highest quality of comfort to tho
new Premier. At tho last previous
election the Liberal candidate bed a
large majority over the combined
votes cast for two opponents. South
Renfrew is about as safe a constituency for a Liberal Government as any
in tho Province, nnd for that reason
was chosen to insure the safe introduction of Mr. Hardy's successor.
There wns a "Pay, Pay, Pay," concert given in Victoria a few nights
ago,at which five hundred dollars were
realized as a contribution tn the Mansion House War Fund. Now Vancouver is following suit. Kipling's war
ballad is, of course, the principal feature. We do not "know why Nelson cannot have a similar concert. Certainly
onr people are not less loyal than those
of the Coast, and we have more than
one lady who could give a fitting, rendering tn KipliiiH's latest. The "absent-minded beggar's" kids deserve
looking after.

Conference Between Railway Officials and
the Board of Aldermen Which
Promises Good Results.
As announced in yesterday's Miner,
General Superintendent Marpole and
Executive Agent G. MoL. Brown are in
the Oity for tlio purpose of conferring
with the City Council as to certain ex-
tensions of the system wliich the Company propose to niako conditional upon
coming to terms with the City iter speo-
ifh'd concessions. In the forenoon the
railway mill with the mayor and a
couple of tlio aldermen, wont over the
ground forming the subject of consideration and informally discussed the
various points at issue. Thu map of
the City was consulted, and it was
found that should the streets outlined
be constructed there would not he
much of the recreation ground left.
However, on tho part of thu 0. P. K.
it was intimated that there would be
no objection to giving the Oity a lease
of the recreation grounds, such as they
are, for a term of years, In exchange
foi i hose, the company propose to deed
the City a plot of forty acres of good
land, to the south west of the oity for
park purnosos,. The plot in question
is capable of being made an excellent
park, reoreation ground and race
course, and is convenient to the city.
This proposition wns very fa vol ably received, As to the closing of the streets
at the west end of the City, it it conceded that tliis would be no public inconvenience, as these thoroughfares
only practically exist on the man.
One roadway would be secured in that
suction of the Oity, which it, is considered would be ample for all possible
traffic in that direction.
Iu the afternoon there was a conference between Mr. Marpole. Mr. Brown,
and tbe mayor and aldermen, at the
Pliair Hotel, at which thu whole question was discussed. On the part of the
railway a formulated stalement was
submitted setting forth what the company desired in tho way of concessions,
und what thoy were prepared to offer
in consideration therefor. The principal foatuio was the guarantee to make
Nelson a divisional point. The matter
was very freely and fully discussed,
bnt no dclinite arrangement was arrived at. However, it was decided that
certain alterations shonld be made, and
that au amended statement ire prepared
and submitted to a special meeting of
the City Council to be held at 10
o'clock this morning. Mr. W, A. Mao-
douiild, Q. C. ,wns present, on behalf of
Hie railway CO in pa uy. The mayor, all
tb%aldenuen and City Clerk Straohan
looked after the City's interests. T ie
best of good feeling was manifested
throughout tho discussion, and there
is every hope that, a satisfactory nnd
amicable arrangement will be arrived
nt. 	
ODD TALKS   WITH  OLD TIMERS.
Mother Foster the Friend of the Pioneer and Prospector.
" You've got yo r hospitals aud ladies aid societies in Nelson now," snid
un old timer the other day, "bur when
I first struck the place in ISHti, we had
neither,and the poor fellow that wanted care or nursing had a pretty hard
timo of it. There were not many of
us, fortunately, on Ihe sick list, and
when anything went wrong the handiest and possibly tho most agreeable
medicine, was whiskey. You've
heard of tho Irishman's cure: 'Put a
broom handle at the foot of your bed
and drink whiskey punch until you
distinctly see two policemen; then
turn in, ami your cold turns out.' Not
until 1881) did wo have a unrso amongst,
us. Sue was u big hearted old soul
that wns known throughout the whole
district as Mother Foster. Many a
poor fellow she nursed through. I
have often seen her in tho depth of
winter riding up to tbe Silver King-
not side saddle either���or off towards
Ymir to attend to some urgent cuso.
Mother Foster afterwards oeened np a
lauudiy aud bathroom, where Hurry's
bakery now stands ou Baker street. It
was the only bath iu the country then,
nnd it was kept pretty busy, for the
boys were not given to u plunge in the
lake. The laundry was a great Godsend to ns, too, for when it comes to
a follow washing his own shirt ho is
likely to put off tho job too long tor
health or comfort snke. Poor old Mother
Foster died in 98, und every one for
miles around attended the funeral. We
loat a good friend when we lost her.
There wns $70 subscribed in as many
minutes to give thn old womiin a do-
cent burial. Dr. LnBan was in camp
in I nose dAys.
"Were thero many people here
then?" was asked.
"Not in '8(1. There were not more
thau iweiily of us all told. But the
iiext year was tho yoar of the Silver
King excitement, and quite n uuniber
come in. Joo Wilson came in with a
pack train of mules from tho Siiuilka-
moon oountry. It wus on mule back
The Minor plant was packed in. Then
wo had throu steamers plying on t,1()
lake���the little Mndhen, with Cupt.
Davis, at the helm; the Galena; and th
Nelson. Tbere were nim, or tea people
drowned then, but in the early days
we used lo think the Galen,, was the
_ reat Eastern of the Kootenay Lakes.
She used to ply between hero and Bon-
iers' Ferry. The Mndhen was a little
raft that used to carry a few passengers or any little freight that wns going, and drop them any place along
the lake that was wanted. When I
think of those old craft and consider
the fine fleet of steamers now sailing
the waters I cannot help thinking that
there is no place in the country that
has grown us rapidly as this old Nelson
of ours."
COMMUNICVIIONS.
WHOLESALE   OR   RETAIL.
Editor Miner;
Sir���I rend your article in this
morning's paper ro eastern wholesale
houses selling direct to tho mine.,, here,
and think it should commend itself to
the retail merchants of tho City of Nelson, and also the surrounding towns.
The writer, for oue, is heartily in accord with the suggestion you made us
to boycotting tho offenders, but as it
is not a good principle to advocate,
namely "making fish of one and flesh
of another," it seems to me tho proper place to oommenoe a boycott for
this offence is in Nelson, before starting in Hamilton, as there are sufficient grounds to show where certain Nelson wholesale houses sell to the mines
autl other camps,not in car lots, but in
amounts us small as one dollar aud upwards, according to tha extent of tho
order given, and at lower prices in
some cases than they quote tho retail
merchants of the town. This to my
mind is a much graver offence than
selling in car lots, as they not only
militate against themselves but nlso
against the retail trade of the town
wliich they expect to patronize them,
aud which does.
It is a matter the retail merchants
of Nelsou must sooner or later take up
in order to protect the trade, nnd that
is the wholesalo merchants infringing
on the retail trade. It is a common
occurrence to bo told after figuring ou
a hill of goods or quoting prices that
they can buy the goods cheaper at one
of tho wholesale houses. This state of
affairs I do not think productive of
profitable business for wholesale or retail trade, and if it cannot be stopped
in any other way the rotail merchants
would surely be justified in boycotting
any wholesale firm, either in Hamilton
or Nelsou or any other place, who
commits the offonce.
RETAIL MERCHANT.
(Of what offences tho local wholesalo merchants mny he guilty we do

themselves against the charge of im

as to the article which has provoked
this correspondence, we are glad on
farther inquiry to be able to state that
it was written under au entire misapprehension of the essential fact in the
case. The mining company referred

entitled to purchase from wholesalers

Mr. C. W. Busk's fine St. Bernard
wis poisoned yesterday moining. The
animal was a noblo specimen of his
species, and seemed to be much attached to Mr. Busk and his family. The
dog, as wns his custom, accompanied
tho children to school yesterday morning, but no sooner had ho entered the
playground than ho was seized with
what was thought a lit Chief .larvis
was sent for,but before heurrived with
a veterinary surgeon the poor brute
was bren'hiug his last. It is unfortU'
nate that when dog poisoners set to
work their deadly morsels fall to really
good animals, while   the   canny  curs
escape. There are scores of dogs iu
Nelson whose departure from this life
few would regret, but the St. Bernard
in qnestion was not nno of these.
Among the brutes that pester the public few are adorned w ith the regulation

The arc lights at tho corner of Josephine and Bakar, and Stanley and
Baker streets have been inoperative for

A fatal accident was narrowly averted at the new building of P. Bums &
Co., yesterday forenoon, The derriufc

and rafters, swung ont of position
while a heavy iron cross piece was being lifted. Half a dozen mon were
working underneath the lift, and how
they escaped is a mystery. The agility
displayed under the circumstances was
worthy the emergency.
At police court on Tuesday morning
Charles Johnson was fined $5 and costs
for drunkenness. He paid the fine, and
ar, once proceeded to load up again,
with the result that he found himself
full and in tho lock-up in the evening.
Yesterday morning he was lined flO

that ho had already been fined for the

he protested, but the jag end, of the
previous day's debauch. Magistrate

Tho Latest News From Dawson City
and   Alaska.
Victoria, B. O., Nov. 15.���The
steamer Danube of this city, which arrived from the north today, brought
nows that the town of Port Essington
narrowly escaped destruction ou Friday last, File broke out iu tbe laundry next to the] hotel, and the Port
Essington Hotel, the two stores and a
number of cabins and shacks were destroyed, with all their contents. The
loss will amount toj between $00,000
and |?0,000. The cannery of Kobert
Cunningham, a waiobonso and the
wharf were the only structures that
escaped.
The Danube had a number of Dawson passengers, including J. S. Cape,
the representative of English capitalists
who are largely interested in many of
the northern gold fields, Price, who
brought out $11,000 in gold and R.
Jackson who had $0,000.
According to news from Dawson reports of good pay diggings have reached theve from Indian River.

subscribed ��2,000 to the Transvaal war
fund. The president cabled the result to business friends in Chicago,
who have now replied that $5,000 has
been subscribed there and tbat more is

VATICAN IS NEUTRAL.
London, Nov. 15.���Cardinal Vaugh-
an's letter to tbe Pope pointing out the
evil effect which the attacks upon England appearing in the Vatican organs
are having upon British opinion has
already borne fruit. The Osservatore
Romano publishes a paragraph stating
that it is the official organ of the
Holy Seo in the announcement of
tacts only, and that its comments npon the war in South Africa are not inspired by the Vatican. It says that
the Holy See will not take the side of
cither party in the hostilities.
CRIME OF THE CENTURY.
FROZEN  AND STARVED.
Boers Convicted   of   Supplying   Arms
to the Matabele Warriors.
A Capetown dispatch says:
Au interesting pamphlet has been
published here under the title of "The
Crime of the Century, " giving a circumstantial account of the supply of
arms to the Matabele by the Transvaal
Government just before and during
their insurrection. The chief agent in
this iufanious work was one Ferriera,
who was once colonel of a corps in the
Zulu War. and was made C. M. G.,
but for many years has been a Trans-
vaaler and an enemy (o England. The
first transaction was the removal under
Ferreira's supervision, of two wagons
of rifles from the Government magazine at Middlebnrg on December 25,
1805, three months before the rebellion. It was given out that the magazine had been broken into by burglars.
Early iu March, 1895, Ferreira departed from Pretoria. Several wagons
of arms and military saddles marked
"Z. A. R." had been taken from the
niagazino at Pretoria, which everybody who has been to Pretoria knows
it is impossible for any burglars to
break into. He was escort6d on the
way by mounted police. On a number of other occasions, between January nud August 18!)0,similar things occurred.
One of the most important witnesses
is a Cane boy, who wns with Ferreira
on all these gun-running trips. He
swears that he himself saw Fereira dis
tributing rifles to the chiefs. There
are several white witnesses also. Another attempt wns made in August,
1897,perhaps with a view to fomenting
n new rebellion On this occasion a
Capo boy, who accidentally smashed a
box, revealing the contents was shot to
prevent his talking.
The pamphlet also contains a letter
from Mr. Campbell, formerly a principal Rhodesian detective, since bought
by the Transvaal. In it tho following
interesting passage occurs: "I have
no hesitation in stating that when
Ferreira is confronted by theso witnesses, their evidenco will convict ,I.m-
bert, Preforious, (late commandant of
artillery,) Wolmarans, and probably
Eloff, Kruger's son-in law."
It is evident that tbe Transvaal,even
before the raid, was plotting anil in-
stigating tho native rebellion, which
resulted in a massaoro of hundre s of
men, women and children, in comparison with which tho raid was insig
nifloant and almost venial.
Terrible End of Tbreo Fortune Hunters in tbe Alaskan Wilds.
Victoria, Nov. 15.���The Skagway-
Alaskan, brought down by the Danube,
tells a thrilling s'ory of starvation and
death in the wilds of Northern Alaska.
The victims were M. C. Daly, of
Boston, Mass., aud two Freuchmeu,
whoso names could not be learned.
Tho story was brought to Skagway hy
William Lawlor, an old time Arizona
miner. Late in the fall of 1808 it appears Lawlor, together with tho men
mentioned aud a fifth named J. Smith-
son, slarted out lo prospect on the head
waters of the Mosquito River. About
Christmas they went ncross the rnnse
and began to stake ground on Bonanza
River. A blizzard came on nnd Daly
and the French men became separated
from the other two men and wandered
away without pro/isions, and with
scant clothing and blankets and a single tent. After the slorm Lin lor and
Smithson followed their footsteps in
tho snow. They found messages written un trees telling tie srr' story of
privation and suffering,
After a time tie little eeurohing
party enmo upon the camp of their former comrades. Death had been tbere
uefore them. On the ground, rolled in
his blankets, his form wasted to a
mere skelc'on, was the jorpae of one of
the Frenchmen. On a camp stove was
a kettle containing a frozen mass that
told its own story, it was filled wilh
the rawhide thongs of snowshoes
which tbe starving men had attempted
to boil for food. A short distance from
tho tent, close beside the trail was
found the body of (he other Frenchman. The wolverines had stripped
every particle of flesh from tho bones.
A little further on Daly's budy was
found iu a similar condition. Buckled
around the hollow ribs in mockery ut
its supreme helplessness in that solitude ol death, was a buckskin belt containing $1,000 in gold dust. The bodies were buried ns best they could be,
and a well known prospector took
charge of the gold dust and other
effects to send them, if ho can, to tho
relatives of the deceased.
Following is the official statement of
the October inn of the Athabasca 10-

NATURALIZATION   OF    ALIENS.
Request That Affidavits Therefor Be
Sworn Before J. P., or Recorder.
Grand Forks, B.. O, Nov. 15.���During his visit hero today a memorial was
preseutod to Hon. J. Fred. Hume,
Minister of Mines, on behalf of a number of alien miners who contemplate
becoming British subjects, requestiug
that the Provincial Legislature at its
next session amend the law governing
the admission of foioigners to citizenship. It was pointed out that the statutes at present enacted required all applicants to make their declarations before the county court judge. It was
alleged that the transfer of thousands
of aliens, including hundreds of Americans, would be accomplished more expeditiously and on a more extensive
scale if authority to take affidavits were
conferred ou Justices of the Peace or
mining recorders. Scores of prospective citizens, it was represented, spent
most of their time in thi' hills, and
through ignorance of the precise date
of the visit of the country court judges
were unable to come to town to fulfill
the requirements
Hon. Mi. Hume replied that the
matter was wholly within ihe jurisdiction of the Dominion Government, and it wonld afford him great
nleisur in make repres ntatious to ihe
Hon. David Mi s Mi ste of Justice, in Ottawa, witli ,, ��� , to
ing the statute amended in tne sense
desired by tho petitioners.
The customs collections at. this port
last mouth exceeded $40,600. bring
nearly double the figures for the corresponding period of last year.
The report whioh has been given
widespread publicity, to the effect that
the sawmill owners of the Boundary
country hnvo formed a combine with a
capital of $1,000,000, is a pure fabrication and has no foundation in faot. K
Bpraggett a prorainsnt local mill owner is authority for the statement that
neither he or any other lumber manufacturers iu this section have joined
the alleged trust. He says he is unaware of the existence of any combination of Boundary mills having for its
object the raising of prices of lumber
products.
