THE FIRE
The Latest Details of the Disaster. -List of Victims

Sympathy and Financial Aid
from All Parts of Dominion.
(SPECIAL TO TIIK MINHIt.)
Ottawa, Out., April 31.���The fire
area was witnessed hy hundreds of
people this afterLoon and evening.
tin.' nf tha niii.il roniurkable thingB
��l mil the sad soone was that no
smoke was to lio seen, Thore wore no
Imir liunu'il buildings or smouldering
logs anywhere. Everything tho flie
hnd touched was burned to ashes. It
was certainly the hottest fire that was
ever witnessed.
The general opinion hero is that it
wuh the most disastrous lire that has
ever vieitod Canada. Some think tbe
St. John Are of 1877 waB more disastrous, and this is probably noneet, but
the area in that caso was not so large,
and in this iuBtance there is a great
deal more destitution aud the sufferers
are of tbe pooier olass. Eveiyone admit! that it was the lumber piles,
which are located all mound the oity
and RoohaBteiville and surrounding the
oity of Hull, that wore the principal
oaDBe of the fire spreading. Especially
was tbis the oase as far as Ottawa is
concerned.
Mr. Fred Perry, a well known underwriter, had for years cautioned the
people of Ottawa against haying such
inflammable material in the heart of
the cit), and iudeed prediotod the very
course that a fire would take. He said
that if a large fire would start at Hull
that it would extend to Ottawa, taking In the Chaudiere district and
Roohesterville, and after going nround
the cliir ou the top of the hill, if a
strong was blowing In an easterly
diraotiou, the western pnrt of the city
would be Bwept away. The firo took
exaotly thia course, aud notwithstanding the fact that the wind was blowing away fiom the oity, ull of Hull's
prinoipal buildings, with the exception of the Onthodral, are things of the
past. The buildings aud land in tbo
place are valued at 12,700,000, and of
this amount over fl,000,000 may bo put
down as u loss. Then iu stocks, fix-
tares, equipments, limine etleots and
wearing apparel thero is a loss of nearly 13,000,000. The vast piles of lumber which went up in smoke may he
reckoned at $9,000,000 more. It is
bard to tell the exact amount of insurance.
The burned part of the city from
east to weBt, from Ottawa River to
Brewery Street, extends over Laurier
Avenue, and Alma, Inkerman Britannia, Main, Albion, Kent, Duke, Lake,
Cuurch, Chaudiere, Brewery and
Frout Streets. South to north, going
from Charles Street to Suspension
Bridge, the streets that were destroyed
are Charles, Albert, Fhilomen,
Wright, Wellington aud Main.
Among tha prinoipal buildings whioh
were destroyed, with their estimated
values, are: E. B. Eddy's paper mill
aud raatoh manufnotnry, fl,000,000, a
low ostiuiate; Hull Lunibor Co., fl,-
000,000; court house and jail, fWI.000;
the Faulkner, Oruham, Marston,
Fbarand, Ponlin, Aubrey, Goyelto and
Uuhainel business blocks, f 140,000; tbo
Pomp houae, maohinory, $115,000; pest
ollice, $25,000; E. B. Eddy, residence,
$35,000; Christian Brothers' rohool,
$15,000; St.Antoiues Couvent, $1H,000;
fire and polioo station, $12,000; St.
Joseph'a Hall, $11,000, and St. James
Anglioan Churob, fl 1,000. Tbe 1,000

GOL. OTTER
The  Canadian   Commander
Slightly Wounded at
Israelspoort
Hamilton Praises Canadians.
Warren Shunted Into a
Governorship
(SPECIALS TO THI''. M1NKR.)
Loudon, April 27.���A despatch from
Lord Roberta dated Bloemfontein,
April 27, gives General Ian Hamilton's report ot the British casualties
at Israelpoort, April 25th. Among
those slightly wounded ia Colonel W.
D. Otter, of Canada. General Hamilton repoits that the Canadians and
Marshall's Horse did splendidly and
oould not bave done better.
London, April 27���.11:15 p. ra.���Tbe
War Offloe has issned the following
from Lord Roberts, dated Bloemfontein, Friday, April 27:
"General French reached Thaba
N'chu this morning. He met General
Hamilton and General Smith-Dorien's
brigades tbere. The enemy are still
holding the eastern outlet of the town
where General Frenoh and General
Hamilton were prooeoding to turn
tbem ont. General Rundle's division
was eight miles south laat evening."
London, April 27.-2 p. m.���The following dispatoh baa been reoeived at
the Wat Office from Lord Roberts:
'Bloemfontein, April 26.���At the
reqnest of the High Commissioner,
General Warren bas been appointed
Military Governor of Griqualand
West, while tbat part of the conntry
is in a disturbed condition. "
At n Meeting Last Night Tbey Endorse Hon. Smith OurtiB.
Rossland, April 27.���The Liberal
Assoointlon, at its meeting tonight to
selsot delegates to the convention to
bring out a oandidate in this riding,
was very largely attended. It was resolved that a oonvention was not necessary and the meeting pledged itself
to support the oandidature of Hon.
Smith Curtis, the Government oandidate, only two opposing the motion to
that effeot. Mr. Curtis has now been
unanimously endorsed by all the other
associations throughout the riding ox-
oept Grand Forks, where a small numbor, only five, passed au equivocal
resolution some ten days ago. A large
meeting ban been oalled tbere and uo
doubt tbat oity, whieh regardless of
party ia very strongly in favor of Mr.
Curtis, and will endorse him.
(BY ASSOCIATED PRESS.)
Lord Roberta' referenoe to Sir Alfred Milner, over General Warren's
appointment, leads to the inference
tbat tbe Commander in Ohief of the
British forces in South Afrioa scarcely
approves of it and tbat tbe pieviouB
report tbat General Warren was recalled was correct, but that he was saved
from ooming home hy the aid of tbe
Biitieh High Commissioner.
London, April 28.-4:55 a. in.���In
Commanlant General Louis Botha, the
Boers appear to bave fonnd a oapable
successor to Joubert. As tbe result of
bis insight and quiok decision, it may
be assumed thnt the retreating oom-
mandoes bave gotten safely away witb
the transport.
It is true tbat Lord Roberta' despatch leaves muoh unsaid aa to tbe
whereabouts of other forces, than
those of General Frenoh and General
Rundle. Nothing is said about the
troops of General Brabant, Generals
Pole-Oarew, Hart and Ohermsides, bnt
the indications from Aliwal North
show that several small oommandoes
are still bovering in tbe vicinity of
Springfield, causing a certain amount
of danger, and the advioes from Dewetsdorp ontlining the duties of General
Ohermaide, justify the conclusion that
it will still be necessary to employ a
considerable body of troops to keep the
Free State dear of Boera. The significance of General Hunter's division going to Kimberley, where mounted
tooops are also arriving daily, is now
said to be a serious attempt to deal
with tbe strong Roer forces on the
Vaal River, now threatening to retake
Barkley, and then an endeavor to relieve Mafeking. It will be borne in
mind tbat General Hunter paid a hurried visit to Lord Roberts at Bloua-
fonteio. 	
London, April 28.���The Boemfontein
correspondent of the Dally Telegraph,
under Thursday's date, says:
"Tbe Boera who retreated from
Dewetsdorp kept well ahead of General
French's oavalry. Unleaa the enemy
should make a stand at Kroonetadt
Lord Roberts will rapidly cross the
Vaal River.' *
Other Bloemfontein despatches throw
interesting points of light upon the
Bitnatlon.   One speoial says:
"Seven hundred and fifty wagons of
a Boer heavy transport train have
reaohed Kroonstadt. The Boers have
oiganized  a specially monnted  oorpa
for foraging aud  other work requiring
speciul abilities."
Auothor deapatoh reports that before
the Boors were driven from Dewetsdorp, about 7,000 cf tbem had boon
slowly retiring towards Ladybrand
where largo supplies are stored. Immense corn fields nre ready for harvesting.
London, April 28.���The Bloouifon-
teln correspondent of the Dnily Cbron-
iole, telegraphing Thursday, says:
"The latest reports show that the
Boots parsed east of Thubu N'ohu
when going north. A prisoner reports
that a commando, wbioh doubled back
on the pursuing Hritish, -jn now making its way west in the direction of
Leeuw Kop.''
The Bloenifontoin correspondent of
the Morning Post, telegraphing Thursday, Bays:
"Most satisfactory progress bas been
made in the accumulation of stores
during the present work, the supply
park now presenting a respectable
appeuianco. The prospects of a general
advance are more favorable. "
Londou, April 28.���The Daily Ohroniole baB the following from Vaal Bank,
dated Wednesday, April 25th:
"For two days the Boors have been
fighting a series of rear guard actions.
Crossing tbe Modder River here and
hotly pursued by Geueral Alderson,
they got into the kopjes southeast of
the crossing aud narrowly missed being captured by General Rundle, who
was coining from tbat direction, but
on sighting his advance, tbey turned
eastward aud slipped away between
General Aldetson aud Geueral Rundle."
London, April 28.���The Ladysmith
correspondent of the Daily Telegraph
says:
"Tbe Boers are preparing to spend
the winter in Natal. They are bringing stock into Natal for winter grazing nnd they are demanding that the
Kalilrs pay the bnt tax to them instead
of the Natal Government. They also
deolare that unless the Kaffirs work for
tbem tbey (the Kaffiire) must move
south of Sunday River."
London. April 27.���Additional casualties tlins far repotted in General Ian
Hamilton's mounted infantry are:
Lieutenants Barry nnd Hill, wounded,
both of Marshall's Horse, the formei
severely, the latter slightly.
A patrol from Bethuli came across a
body of the enemy on Smithfleld
Road, April 25th. Private King, of
the Prince Alfred Guards, was killed
and two of the Royal SootB Servico
Corps were taken prisoner.
LETTER FROM THE PRINCE.

World Wide Congratulations.
London, April 27.���Tbe Ptince of
Wales acknowledges the sympathy and
congratulations from all parts of the
world in a letter just made pnblio as
follows:

numerous expressions of sympathy and

THE HULL. F1KK.
What dois Nelson propose to do in
tbe face of this awful calamity that
has befallen Hnll nnd Lower Ottawa?
Fifteen thousand of our fellow Canadian oitizons are rendered homeless, aud
many thousands of thorn, no doubt, ure
without food and clothing or the means
of obtaining them. In the extent of
it and tbo appalling misery of it, no
such calamity has befalleu our people
anywhere since the burning of St.
John many years ago. Relief iB needed
at once, aud on so large a scale that
all Canadians must contribute unless
the present distress is to be aggravated. Tbe usual method is by subscription, and if some one will but take tbe
lead the City of Nelsou, ever generous
in a good oanse, will no doubt nobly
respond. But this is necessarily slow,
and the omargeuey does not permit of
delay. If the Mayor aud Finance
Committee will take the responsibility
of a generous remittance at once, out
of the civic funds, there is little doubt
the Counoil will sustain tbem, and
The Miner has confidence enough to
vouch for the hearty approval of the
citizens. Afterwards, with such expedition as is possible, we cnn mnkn up a
fnnd by voluntary subscriptions. If
desired, Tbe Miner will gladly accept
contributions, make acknowledgment
through its columns, and forward
promptly.
small duty on foreign foodstuffs for the
benefit  of  Canada.    Or   it  might   lo
arranged   through   the    zollvoreiu   to
whioh Mr. Chnmberlaiu   made   reference tho other day���free  trnde  within
the Empire and a tariff against all the
rost of the world.   That was a   detail,
however, to  be considered.   Canada's
preseut differential in favor of Biitain
does  not  meet   the   oase, for we  get
nothing iu return ;  it is a jug-handled
arrangemeut.and tho proposed inoreaso
of   tbe differential   threatens our own
industries without offering auy recompense.   Sir Charles Toppor  objects   to
that, and so will   most Canadians who
give   the   qnestion   intelligent  study.
He also  objects  to putting  Canadians
in   Ihe   position of   being  obliged   to
share tho   burdens  of   liritnin's wars,
either in men or money  or  both.    He
always   mnde   thnt   objection, and   ao
doos   every   Canadian   worthy of   fie
Dame,    We desiro   to maintain our independence, our absolute, perfect independence, ns   a   self-goveruiug portion
of   the    Empire,   an   integral   nation
within a nation.   Tbat   is   the   great
beauty and strength of tbe British Imperial   system.     It   was   because   we
were   free   that  our   voice went np so
unanimously und enthusiastically for a
first   aniln   second and n third   contingent, a tenth   if   necessary, to   aid   iu
maintaining the Empire In   Sonth Africa.    To   be   compelled to furnish aid
is quite another  mutter, and so doubtful iu its expediency   that   the   statesmen   of   Great Britain   wonld   be the
first   to denounce the suggestion of  it.
In   declaring   against   it  Sir  Charles
Tupper  does  not depart au iota from
his former  attitude, either   in respect
to this phase of   the Imperial question
or any other.

They are discarding party lines in
Viotoria, and the Opposition are running tbe old tioket, Messrs. Turner,
Helincken, McPhillips. and Hall. Victoria is Conservative and Mr. Hall is
a Liberal. It will be to the everlasting
shame of Victoria if it does not see
that Mr. Hill is elected. Here in
Nelson, aud all oyer tbe Province, tbe
best Liberals are standing loyally witb
the Conservatives in their determination to defeat Martinism and put an
estoppel on Cottonism. The least return the Conservatives oan make is to
prove equally loyal to every Liberal
candidate who stands with them.

SIB CHARLES  TUPPER,   IMPERIALIST.
No one who reads, say, such creditable Liberal organs as Tbe Victoria
Times and The Vancouver Provinoe,
witb half the assiduity it is both the
duty and pleasure of The Miner to do,
would think of accusing them of stupidity. And,as honesty goes in political warfare, they have at least an average share of it; indeed, we should be
diaprsed to give them credit for the
possession of a somewhat larger share.
How, then, are we to account for their
persistent misrepresentation of Sir
Charles Topper's attitude in respect to
Imperial unity? They are not alone
in thiB. Ever since his recent Quebec
speech au endeavor hns boen made to
show that he bas changed from an ardent Imperialist to an unbeliever in
the consolidation of the Empire. The
Liberal newspapers all along the line
have assumed tbis, and there are some
Conservative papers that feel themselves uuder the necessity of oponly
deprecating his supposod change cf polioy. Tbe party cartoonists think they
And in his fall from Imperial grace a
rioh field for tho exploitation of their
peculiar methods.
Tbe truth is that all these attacks
���re founded on the most amazing
ignorance. There was not a line or
word in Sir Cbarlos Tupper's Quebec
speeoh that is ln the least inconsistent
with his fonnor professions. Kor 11
period of fifteen or sixteen years he
has been the chief Canadian champion
of closer Imp-rial relations. He is
the cbief today, although he has the
happiness to sen that Canadians of all
parties and classes are as enthusiastic
ImpeiahhiH as himself. He stood for
Imperial federation when it had few
advocates iu this country. He holievod
and steadfastly held that a system of
preferential trnde within the Empire
would Strengthen the bonds of union
between tha Mother Conntry and the
Colonies. We do not understand thnt
be bas shifted a hair's breadth from
the straight   line of  tins policy.
His idea of a preferential arrangement was and is that for concessions
on onr part we should get something
iu return. There might have been
morn or less haziness 11s lo details, as
tbere heretofore hap been in regard to
the whole scheme of federation ; but
that was the prlnolple. If we gave a
preference to British goods. Britain
ibould reciprooate by, say, imposing a
Hnll is most unfortunate. Twice before it has suffered from the scourge
of fire, once to its utter obliteration.
The Eddy Manufacturing Company,
whom we all know through tbeir
matches if in no other way, have now
gone throngh their third fire, with
nothing left on eaoh occasion to show
for tbeir enterprise but a heap of ash-
es. Across tbe river from Ottawa
there must be an unappeasable hoodoo
of the most malignant disposition. It
cannot be the sins of Parliament,
wbioh are many aud heavy, for in tbat
case it would be Ottawa, not Hull,
that was punished.

SUCCESSFUL MATINEE
Hundreds of Happy school Children En
joy the Splendid Production
of Plnuforo.
Four hundred happy, protty nnd
well-dressed children woro on a lark
at tlio OpetB. House yesterdny after-
noon, They weie nocompnnied hy
viuious mothers, fnthors nud nurses
who helped to swell tho imdieuoe to
such proportions thnt very fow sents
remained ujoooopted.
Pinafore, as prodnoed by the clover
Nelson nmateiiiH on tlio provions
evening, made such a decided hit that
everyone was anxious to see it, and
Dr. LaBan did not overlook tho nhil-
ilreu when thu niatinoe wns announced
lint   purchased   tickets for ahout three
hundred of tbem  and  that  number
want as his Roosts. Theso represented
the children of tho publio nnd Hume
addition schools. It was n strange an-
dleooe to attend n performance of Pinafore for the average oro of  the ohil-
dri'U could not have been more than
ten yenrs. It was "nwfnlly hot in
there,'1 as one   little Rirl said, yet the
youngsters bebaved themselves splendidly. If thev did nrt applaud at thn
right lime, and preferred "Dick Dead-
eye" 10 "Josephine" it wns their own
bnsiness and nobody's else. Thoy
seemed to enjoy it immensely nnd it
gnus without aoying thnt tho older
ones woro delighted with the meritorious work of the principals, orchestra
nnd chorus.
The performance wns ns smooth ns
thn one 011 tho pre\ ions evening and
the same biiooorsoh wore sooted, The
principals were in good voioe, the
ohoms an efficient nnd the orohestra ns
perfect.
Mrs. OtiH, whoso mnke-nn ns ono of
the nunts is very Rood, ndds considerably to the appearanoe nun; life of the
chorus. Tho ninrinos, SerRt. C. E.
Beiudey, Oorpornl Q, M. MoPhilllps,
Vrivate Victor Uoxhead nud Private

ers, ji�� one of tho fentnres of the nt-
tractive stnge netting. Thoy nre smartly uniformed nnd mount guard in n
very soldierly miinner. Thoro will bo
five of them on tho stage toniRht.
The concndinR performance will ho
given this ovening. Profiting by tho
experience of two appearances before
the pnblio. nil hands will bo prepnred
tn Rive the best production yet. All
tho little rough places hnvo been
smoothed over nnd the public cnn bo
assured of n trent. It would be woll if
tho ohoms kept Un eyes ou the conductor's bnton more sharply nnd not
ciowd so much to the front of the
stage when net engaged in singing, as
the back of tho stage presents n bare
appearance It might nlso be suggested
thnt tbs grand tableau at the conclusion ot tho performance would look
better if thn stage lights nnd must of
thoso in front were turned out while
thn red light wns hnrning. Tho audience needs to remember that there is a
tableau nnd thnt when tho curtain
falls ou the second act one of Ihe most
uttinctive features is yet to come.' It
is hoped none of tnniRht's anilionca
will leave tho (heater until the national niitheui is finished Also toniRht
whoever is responsible for it might
raise the curtain nt tho end nf the that
aot if tbe demand is ns enthusiastic ns
it has beeu nt tbe two peiforninncos
already Riven. The remarkably fine
work of the ohorus entitles tbem to
this compliment and a few bars from
the orchestra is nil thut is needed to
bring it abont.
Everything nsnnrei a lnrge nu.lionao
tonight and u rich treat is in storo for
all who nttoud. No Oltisen of Nelson
should miss this last opportunity to
hear Pinnfore.
Tho Miner has been requested to
