Boer Methods of
Warfare.
The Geneva Cross and White
Flag are Frequently
Violated.
(SPECIALS TO TUB MINER.)
London, Murch llil.���The most serious
Indictment of the Boer method of war-
faiu which has yet appeared in England oomes from Mr. Julian Ralph,
the American war correspond ant, in a
letter from Kiniberly, published in
this morning's Daily Mail. Iu part it
in bb follows: "It is a wnr steadily
aud stealthily planned hy the Queen's
Hatch subjects and tho Dutch Republics, lor fully twenty years. Kor bo
twbtui four and six yours they have
been equipped for it. They began
purchasing at times, and planning de-
fences hefore the Jameson rnid. Let
no ono fool you with the fulso report
shout that. Finally President Steyn
ooniehted, Next rid your mind of the
notion that you nre crushing two firmer Republics, There Is not a farmer
iu the two countries nnd only one, the
Free State was a Republic in any way
except niisiimiiiig. Theso people ore
'rienlers of cattle, sheep aud goals, liko
the Isiaelitios of old and tho Afridis,
Turku and Balkan peoples of today.
His (the Boer's) so-oalled arms aie
as nature made them, merely tiacts of
veldt whereon his cattle graze. On
ench 0110 ho has put up a homo but its
surruundiugs ure almost invariably
moio repcllaut and disorderly thun any
house I ever saw except the cabins of
the freed slaves in the Statos. Tbeir
camps and strongholds from which
we have ousted them lire tho filthiest
places I hnve known men ot any sorl
to live in aud I have seen Indinn,
Chinese and Turkish onnips, and thu
camps of many sorts of blnokmen. As
to their bravery and honor, I have seen
aud heard sullioient to 1111 a page of
The Daily Mail with aooouuts of their
cowaidice and dastardly behaviour before I came to Kimberley and 1 find
they are guilty of different and original enormities. Here they killed cur
wounded and laid their bodies in a
row after one of the forays out ol
town. Here they armed many blacks
to tight against us, bhowing all tho
world how scandalously fraudulent
were their exclamations of horror at
the idea of our employing native Indian troops. There has hardly been
a battle in whioh the Boera have not
abused either the White Flag or the
Geneva Cress or both. At Spion Kop
our people saw them loading Maxims
in ambulances iu order to get tbem
lately away. This we saw them do at
the Modder River also, and Kimberley
where the Boers shelled tho funeral
of George L. Abraham, an American.
At many flaoeB they havo fired on our
ambnlances.
successes necessitate a great expenditure of horse power. Here and in
Natnl wo shnll move on the commencement of the South Africau winter aud
must he prepared to face the effeots of
the first frost upon suoh animals ns
may be affected with horso sickness. It
would be suicidal to push troops forward as they are equipped to meet tbe
exposure of winter, horBeB, clothing
and food we must have."
The correspondent adds that the
Boer forcos have been re-equipped snd
bo says he is fully convinced that 50,-
000 foreign troops have been landed to
aid the Republics A deputation of
Dutch Ohuroh ministers today had an
audience with Premier Schreiner at
Cape Town. The ministers urged the
separation of tho sink and. well Boer
prisoners aud asked that the siok be
not sent to St. Helena. Mr. Sohreiner
replied thnt he had no power in such
matters, bnt would use his friendly
offices. He added that be had made
strong representations to the Imperial
Government against sending nny of
the prisonors to St. Helena, hut, without success. It is reported thnt tbe
prison transports will sail for St. Helena nt end of this.week.
At Cholson Barraoks this morning
tho Prinos of Wales inspected a battalion of sharpshooters organized by Lord
Dnnraven for tho Imporial Yoomeury.
He complimeuted them on their ap-
pearanoo, and said: "I sincerely hop*
that you may shoot straight when the
neoessity ariseB."
London, March 29.���The War Office
has received tbe following diBpatch
fiom Lord Roberts dated Boemfontein,
Maroh 28. : "General Clements occupied Fauresmith today without opposition. One nine-pounder and one Mar-
tiui-Maxim were disooversd in a prospecting shaft of a mine, where a large
quantity of ammunition was buried.
Arms are being surrendered gradually
and thu inhabitants are Bottling down.
Colonel Pilcber visited Lady Biand
on March 20. On leaving the town he
wns attacked by a pints- of the enemy
and one of his force was wounded and
live are missing. During the skirmish
north of the Modder River, on March
26, five men were wounded. Captain
Slonu m .nib y, of the Sixteenth Lancers, nnd five men of that legiment
were taken prisoners.

London, Maroh 21).���Speculation ub
to Loid RobertB' advance from Bloomfontein is the topio of tho day and
piobably will continna to be if the
British Commaudor-iu-Ohief in South
Afiica shall conceal his movements as
carefully as ho has done in the  past.
April 2nd is set Hy various critics as
the probable date of the departure of
the mail army from Bloomfnntoin.
The movements of the cavalry force
and part ot the infantry toward   Gleu-
00 can scarooly be construed nB nn actual advance, though they undoubtedly
point to tho imminence of such a atop.
But only a small part of Genor-1 Gat-
acre's foroes has yet arrived at Bloemfontein and until that movement shall
have been completed it iB not likely
Lord Boborts will Btart for Pretoiia.
The last news from Bloemfontein contained in a dispatoh published in the
second edition of The Tine, dated
Wednesday, March 2H, dwells upon the
necessity of not mnking a premature
advance. The correspondent who, on
several occasions bns Boemed tn have
l>een chosen uh the mouthpiece of Lord
Huberts' cables: "It Bhould bo clearly
understood that the present hnlt in
the vicinity of Bloenifontoiu is absolutely neoessnry as a military precaution. It should bo borne in mind tbat
we are about to enter  on  a new phase
01 the operations with thn mnin communication through a rocently occupied hostile oountry and that the recent
Londou, Maroh 80.���(4 a. m.)���The
Boors are concentrating iu force about
15 miles nortb ot Bloemfontein in tbe
rear of Glen, and Lord Roberta is
sending forward troops to engage
them. The Seventh Infantry Division
and part of General French's cavalry
has been sent to join the 14th Brigade
and the two cavalry regiments that
are holding Glen and its environs. It
does not seom probable tbat the Boers
will give serious battle iu the country
north of Glen. Btill the evident
strength indicates more than a corps ot
tihseivutiiiii. In small affairs the Boera
are daringly aggresaive in all parts of
the field of war. The Johannesburg
Mounted Polioe esteemed by tho Boera
to be their best mounted command, are
laiding tbe country near Bloemfontein,
harassing farmeis wbo have given up
arms to the British and carrying off
cattle. There is a repoit from Natal
that a Russian soldier of Fontaine,Colonel Qanetildx, with a hundred horsemen in operating olose to tbe British
I outposts on tbe western border. The
Boers have reoocupled Campbell and
are in strength neai Kings and Berkley West. Tbey shelled tbo British
camp ot Wnrrenton Wednesday, but
moved out of range that night. Yesterday two lb itinb guna enfiladed the
Boer trenchos quieting theit Mausors.
Lord Methuen aud tbe foroos that had
been operating iu the Barkley district
have been retailed to Kimberley by
Lr.rd RobertB. No explanation has
been giveu for this but the mounted
troops ure dissatisfied at having been
ordered baok. The Boers und disloyalists at Kenhardt have beeu dispersed
and caused to retreat. General Parsons is about to outer the town unopposed, Aocoiding to Pretoria advioee,
Mufekiug was bombarded for seven
hours Tuesday. It is reported in London, that Lord Kitoheuor will be offered the post of Oommander-ln-Ohief iu

have been obtained in Transvaal, and

(11Y ASSOCIATED PRESS.)
London, Maroh 20. ���Fever have tbe
mailed acoonnts from tho war been so
interesting. Within the last f^w dnyB
some fifty columns of these have appeared iu Loudon papers and for the
flr*t time Great Britain hns learned the
dotails that marked the ride of General Frenoh into Kimberley, tho ad-
vouce of Lord Roborts into the Orange
Free Stnte, tho corrnling of Genernl
Cronje, tbe advance to the rolief of
LadyBmith nnd terrors of the seiges of
Kimberley and Mnfeking.
From this interesting account the
most vivid is perhaps the detailed account of General French's ride to Kim-
herley. It is said that since six hundred oavalry oharged fruitlessly at Ba-
laklavn, uo such spectacular sight hns
been recorded iu tho annals of war.
In this oase thero were 1,000 and with
them wore some 400 gnus. The correspondent of the London Times describes these things as follows: "From
Moddor River, fiom Reusburg and
from DeAnr, tho Cavalry, Mounted Infantry nud Horse Artillery came in
long lines silently. On Monday the
march began. Ram Dam, eight miles
to the south, wns soon passed aud a
sharp skirmish secured Debiel's Drift
on the Reit. After a halt of a dny they
moved on. Dny after day the cuvalry
moved at higli pressure over the shado-
less veldt during the hottest hours of
the day. On Thursday the 15th, at 10
o'clock the critical advunoe was made
and the shelling and capture of two
laagers, a few miles out of Klip Diift
on tho northern side of the river.clear-
ed the way for a junotion with the
forces encamped on tho Modder River,
some five miles cast of the border.
This body was composed ot Kitohon-
er's and Robert's Horso and two more
regiments of Mounted Infantry. Before tbey entered the great plain of
Alexandersfontein, tbe coutingents
from Modder River, the Scots Greys,
Household Cavalry and two Lancer
regiments also joined the force, which
now numbered 10,000 men, seven batteries of Horse Artillery and throe
Field batteries. Their entry into the
plain was the signal for tbe great
event of the day. The plain is perhaps 95 miles in width nnd five in
length, converging slightly to the
north and fringed with kopjes. At
Devilier's Farm, at the north end of
plain the column halted and reformed
after watering tbe horses. They bud
come ten miles and broken thu ring
around the besieged town. The pace
at which the' advance had been mado
had both miminized the casualties and
prevented Cronje from appealing with
10,000 men to line tho kopjes on the
plain. Meanwhile tho cavalry pushed
on ; the pace began to toll; horso after
horse fell dead from wounds unnoticed
in tbe heat of light. Thero was not
timetopauw and at Inst some three
miles on, the first sight of Kimberley
burst upon our sight. The long weary
weekB of anxiety, the disappointment
of Mngersfonteiu nnd heart aches of
deleired hopo were aliko forgotten.
Kimberley wnB relieved and tho remainder of tho march might ns well
huve been n reivow. The Boon on the
north of towns at intermediate station
and Knmpherdam were firing their last
shots from their great gun in ignorance of their failure on the south, but
those booh stopped nnd Genernl French
entered the town within a moment
and had put out his Hugs nnd deelnrn-
tions. Cronje lying in insolout security aoioss tho kopjes of Kimberley
heard that nn army hnd broken nt five
points into the State and wns moving
no oue knew whole. Accustomed to
the dragging Impotence of our advances when unaided by the railways
he aont hiH outposts to stop us nt Modder River nnd the Reit, but tbe men
to whom the task has beeu entrusted
either found our scouts before tbem or
awaited them in too leisurely a mood.
Genernl Frenoh swept tho Drifts with
his cavalry and his guns and nun who
behold them fled.   Then   during   suo-

Winnipeg, Maich 29.���The ceremonies attending the opening of the first
session of tbe Tenth Legislnture took
place this afternoon. The event attracted more interest than for many
sessions owing to it being the first
Conservative Government of the Proviuoo in twelve years. The mild weather aud bright sunlight nlBO tended to
bring out thn orowd. Mr. W.Hespler,
M. P. P., for Rosenfeldt, was electod
Speaker. The House adjourned until
Monday.
Winnipeg, March 29.���The Speeoh
from tbo Throne nt the opening of tbo
Manitoba Legielatuie toduy makes a
lengthy referenco to the South Afrioan
War and tbe bravery of tbe Canadian
troops. The Speech continnea: "During the reeess I appointed a Royal
CommisBiou to examine into and report
upou the finauoial position of the
Provinoe. The report will be laid before you ns early in the present session
as possible. Legislation will be asked
with a view to restoring that equilib-
Hum in finances, whicb I regret to
say has not been maintained iu tbe
past nnd will be of a charaoter, which
will I believe, accomplish this dlfiionlt
task. In pursuance of this object a
bill will be introduced reduoing the
number of Ministers rceiving salaries,
to three. I regret to Bay tbat my
Government is under the necessity of
refnsiug to submit for you ratification
certain ordersiu-Oounoil, grunting
aid to certain railways and also of refusing to endorse promises of aid made
to tbe said railway companies. You
will be asked to repeal tbe present
nisi iv and unsntisfactoiy Eleotion Aot
and to enact in its stead one muoh simpler and less expensive. Tbe people of
Manitoba having on two oocasions de
clared themselves by theii votes, in favor of prohibition of liquor traffic, my
Government has decided to give effect
to their views, in so far as the powers of
the Provincial Legislature will permit
them to do so and a bill dealing witb
IhiB iraportunt subject will be submitted to you at tbe present session."

Ottawa, March 29.-Sir Richard
Oartwrigbt resumed his speoch on tbe
Budget in reply to Mr. Foster. Mr.
Cartwright snid tbat he hnd read 55
pages of Hansard, which had beeu filled by Foster nnd oauld not got five
new ideas in tbem. These pages woro
filled with scraps from scrap books and
siiatlings aud badinages tbnt people
did not want to bear, thnt what they
did want to know was what Fielding
told thero, namely, seven million and
a half surplus, aud that trade hud been
increased to au enoimous and unpre-
condented degree Lnurier hnd done
more in three years for Canada, snid
CattWright, thnu the Conservatives
could bave dono in lit. Sir Richard
mads an analysis of Foster's figures,
showing his percentage and avenge
were entirely misleading.that r
hnd been left off in some iimiaiir.es
to suit Mr. Foster's political ends.
Dealing with the question of preferential tariff, Mr. Caitwright said that it
would uovor have beon greatei by Conservatives uud that Canada was now
enjoying substantial preferenoe from
Britain in return. The valoo of the
admission of Canada to the trustee lists
in Britain was nltngother underrated
by Mr. Fieldiug aud aa for thu sending
of tbo  oontlngonts,   although   he  did
not want to moution tbem in a commercial Bense, Canada bad already
beon moio than repaid.
Sir Chnrlos Tupper, who wns received with cheers by the opposition, at-
tacked Sir Richard In n personal way.
Sir Charles snid that Oartwrigbt
would very soon sink out nf eight nnd
thnt at present he was reudoriug no
value for tbo seveu thousand dollars he
was drawing oach your. In 1869 he
snid, tbat Sir Riobnrd had written a
letter to Sir John MaoDonald iu ISO!',
threatening to leave the Conservative
party, if he were not made Finance
Minister, and when Sir Francis
Hinoks wns taken in Cartwright loft
the party forever. Sir Richard said
that Sir Chuiles stated n deliberate
falsehood in speaking about his having
written any such letter, and he know
thnt it was a falsehood. Sir Charles
retoitod that he saw tho letter. Both
hnd to withdraw their statements ns
unparliamentary, Sir Charles went on
to Bay that Ciirtwnght wns humiliated
by having to take an inferior positiou
in the Cabinet.
Mr. Dymout introduced n bill respecting tho Lake Superior nnd IludHon
Buy Ruilway.
In the Senate the C. P. R. bill was
rend a third time and i nsi tad. Mr.
Perloy asked if the preseut School Law
of Manitoba is n sutistoctury sottle-
meut of the Bcbool question of that
Provinoe as has beeu stated by the Secretary of State. Also, in what particular does the present School Act of
Manitoba differ from tho last act. Mr.
Mills said Mr. Perley was nskiug the
question iu the wrong qunrter. It was
a matter within tbo jurisdiction of
the Province. He could uot say whether thre School Luw was satisfactorily
settled or not. The question whb one
which came botoro this Parliament
only under certain circumstnnpees. It
oame before tbe Parliament once, and
was dealt witb. As to the seoond
question Mr. Perley hid tbe Statute of
Manitoba beforo him, aud could judge
as he would.
He reccgnisod no public neoessity
far bis giving nn Opinion on this point
and did not propose to givo a gratuitous one. Mr. McSwoenoy rend a cutting about the closing of tbo Catholic
Schools iu Winnipeg. Ho thought the
fact that Catholic sections of Manitoba
had supported the Greenway Government was sullioient answer. (Crios of
noi) Mr. Beraier regretted seoing Mr.
McSweeuey, a gentleman of Catholic
faith, Biding with the enemies of that
faith iu tho House. Mr. Mills' answer
was an evasive one. Mr. Mills supposed tho MacDonald Government
would give the Catholics relief. Mr.
Beruier hoped so. He snid it was
poverty that made tbem close the
schools. A lengthy debate on the
school question followed. Sir W. Bo-
well, in the Senate, cnlled attention to
two telegrams, ono from New York
and one from Sidney, N. S. W., containing the alleged consulting of the
Colonies in the South Africau settlement. He would aak whether any
such communications bad beon received, if so, could ho take tho House into
his coulidonoe. Had tho Premier of
Cauada joined in the representations
of Australian Pioruiers, and what was
the polioy of the Government, lu his
opinion tho Australian Premiers having helped Great Britain In the struggle wero following nut their policy and
were entitled to give such advice. He
hoped Canada would do the same, but
regretted that ns in tho matter of the
contingents, Cauada should follow instead of leading the lesser Colonies,
tie hoped tbe Government would follow the same policy, inn', oppose any
������ciilenient short nf iieiinipietn annexation. Hon. D. Mills conld answer
neither question. He did not recognise
that there could be any question as tn
what the duty of the Empire was.
There was none iu bis mind. There
bud beeu a timo when people thnuglit
the Empire big enough. England bad
granted them Republics and their independence on certain condltioni, Tbe
Orange Freo Stute bad kept those conditions fairly well till this wnr. Tin
Trnnsvnnl never bad. They hnd regarded the condiious as only obligatory ou < ne side. The matter had end-
od in wnr. That war must end in
peace, but penco on such terms iih
should leave no doubt that there wonld
be uo repetition of the times before the
war. (Hear, hear.) The Imperial
members know their duty.    The peace
must be no compromise, which wonld
disappoint the hopes oi Canada nnd tbe
other Colonics.    Hon. Mr. Henry asked
would Mi. Mills' sentiments be submitted to tbo House. Hon. D. Mills
oonld sny no more. Thoy had nnani-

DISCORD IN THE CAMP.
i-lioutere" bf (he Opposition, for "proclaiming the fart far aud near that it
would be impossible for Hon. Joserh
Martin to form a Cabinet." Hut he
"pureued the even tenor of bis way,"
and disappointed them.
We do not kuow that uuyone has
thought,and certainly uo one has said,
tbat Mr. Martiu could not form n Cabinet, if by that is meant that he would
bo unable to persuade four or five others to accept portfolios under him.
Any man could do that. We doubt very
much if tbe editor of The World
would experience the slightest difficulty in Retting five men to join a Cabinet, without Btepping outside of his
own office. Mr. Wilka, of the Miners'
Union,sould form a Government within twenty-four hours. So could any
sectiou boas on any railway in the
Proviuce. There is not a man in a
British Columbia who could not, with
tbe Governor's commission in his
pocket, readily obtuin the consent of
half a dozen others to accept a salary
of foui thousand a year and the title of
"Hon." while the game lasted. There
is no trouble in getting meu to fill up
Cabinet positions; they are lying
around nu plentiful as blackberries in
June.
It may have been said that Mr. Mnr
tin would bo unable to get men of repute to join bim in a Cabinet, and if
it wero the result has abundantly justified the prediction. At this writing
he bas succeeded in installing foui colleagues. Not one of them has ever
been in public life in this Proviuoo or
elsewhere, and a month age not one
mun iu four in British Columbiu ever
heard of them. They may be very
worthy, respectable gentlemen, nevertheless; but if Tbe World knows its political a, b, c, it knows that the unfailing custom iu such cases is to select men who are kuo^m to tbe publio
and whe have had some experienc-3 in
publio affairs. An uuknown man now
and again muy have been dragged from
his obscurity and elevated to the position of a Cabinet Minister, but this
is tho only instance on record in which
any entire Cabinet, with tho single
exception of tbe Premier, bas beeu
made up of individuals whoso names
even are beard for the first time by
nine-tenths of the people of the Pro\-
ince. If The World oan discover iu this
anything to boa9t of, it can boast further of a monstrouBly peculiar perception of things.

with a sense
Lieutenant-Governor has been gnilty
of outrageous conduct, nud if the people did uot persist in burpiug on it
they would make very conspicuous rtis-
pliy of a servility thnt would stamp
them as little better than serfs. We
are supposed to have lesponslble government in Ilntish Columbia, and if
possible we want to livo up to it. Just
now there is no such thing. A Uov-
ernor has his prerogatives, but tbey
are expeuted to be kept within limits.
Her Majesty may do almost anything, but sbo would nover think of
flying iu tbe face of Parliament, or of
picking up a favorite wbo was distasteful to tne people and giving him
bu entire seusou or two to scheme aud
twist in the hope of making his posi-
tion secure. Thut is what the Governor has done in our case, witb the result that the entire control of our Provincial affairs is iu tho bands of a
net of untriod nnd unknown men. It
iu a most Bcnudulons abuse of authority, and unless the people ate prepared
to surrender their liberties they do
well to harp on it.
In some respects a Lieutenant-Governor iB subjeot to no control except that
of reason and common sense. Mr. Mo-
linn's has neither, which leaves the
Provinoe in a very bad way. Tho superior authority ut Ottawa may intervene, but tbis it will not do exoopt in
oxtretne canes. We think the extremity bun beeu reached in tbis instance.
Mr. Martiu and his Government accept responsiblity for the Governors
art urn Thnt is aceordiug to the
constitution, end is quite proper. But
it in nlso ucoording to constitutional practice thut the people.either
directly or through tho Legislature,
shall be Kiven the earliest possible opportunity to pronounce upon the Government. Tbis the Governor refuses to
do, and we think the time has come
that the Federal authority shall intimate to him that ho must either 00m-
ply or retire. Thnt, we imagine, is
the veiw taken by Mr. Ilostook. But
if a political game ull ainund, it may
bo that Henator Templeman is endeavoring to 1 ilec-i n reconciliation between
the Ottawa Government and Mr. Martin, with the object of making the
latter the Liberal leader in British Colombia in plueo of Mr. Bostouk, Tho
Premier's reply will shod light ou tbis
dnik spot.	
A SIMPLE UKOAN.
lngton Beebe is an American or Canadian citizen. Some years ago be signified his intention to become a British
subjeot, which is taken as evidence
that during his sojourn ncross the bolder he took tbe oath of allegiauco to
the Uuited States; and it is not
known tbat ho evei rounded off bis re-
patirution by formally discaiding his
Amerioan citizenship. It is not so
long ago tbat Mr. Martin was a rauk
annexationist, uud it may be tbat he
ooUBlders it unnecessary to distinguish
botwsen American ��� and Canadians iu
filling up his Cabinet. At the same
time it would be well to ascertain definitely whether ono of Ilia Honor's latest udvisors is an American subject.

It must be presumed thut Mr. Kollie,
member for Revelstoke, is a man of
some intelligence, otherwise tho electors of tho constituency would hardly
send bim to the Legislature. Ho hus issued au address to tbe Liberals there
warning them against Mr. Marl in and
the Vancouver convention. Ha also opposes the introduction of party linos.
Tbe Federal pnrtios, ho says, havo to
do with national affairs; our affairs
are mainly municipnl. Then he process to enunciate a list of tho various
matters that come within the regulation and control of tho Dominion Parliament, such M tbe tariff, postal service, militia, trade and commerce!
ana as tho Provincial jurisdiction is
not permitted to extend to these, ho
insists that there "cun bo no occasion
to introduce tho political issues of the
one iuto the other." One almost de-
spuirs of Intelligent, stable government
in British Columbia,with men in control of its affairs who can suppose that
a division into Liberuls and Conservatives must mean our intrusion iuto the
domain of Federal polities. Is it possible that Mr. Kellie is unable to understand that a person run) bo u Liberal in Provincial affairs without con-
coiving it to be bis duty to regulnto
tho tariff for the entire Dominion? If
he cannot ho should hnvo tho gruco to
retire into private life, and mnke
room for some oni who hns intelligence enough to know that it is not
necessary the two jurisdictions should

The developments of the war in South Africa, its serious conflicts, the deeds of heroism of its participants, the great massing of Boer Armies and the unprecedented forward
movement of British troops to the Cape, coupled with a universal desire for information
concerning a country cf which very little is known, have intensified public interest in the
subject to an extent hitherto unequalled. With characteristic enterprise, this paper will
supply the demand for South African Literature that present conditions have created. To
this end we now offer our readers the first number of a magnificent art series to be issued
in weekly parts under the title of "Glimpses of South Africa in Peace and War." Illustrating and describing the current military events of the day and the sights and the

and South America. He was a rattling
good soldier, ii clean, spick ami span man
who had in his ditty box a degree that
ho had taken at the University of Dublin. He hnd but one apparent fault���
the one thnt doubtless worked him into
a government Btraiffbt uniform ns n soldier of the sen���which was un abiding
love for hot and rebellious liquors. He
kept this rum passion down while on
board ship, but whenever he 'hit the
bench' he drank five glasses of liijuor to
tbe one glass tossed off by nny of hip
companions, murines or soldiers.
"From a quiet, reserved man he
changed into a lighting maniac when
drunk. Corrlgan didn't go ashore from
the time he joined the ship until we
pulled into the harbor of Acapulco. Then
he went over thu side, and within 20
minutes after he put his foot on the
bench he was fighting drunk on mescal
nnd knocking down Cireasers iu sets of
fours. He didn't show up aboard for
four dnys, breaking his liberty three
days. lie was still drunk ami ugly when
ho reported himself to tho ofiicer of the
deck. The ofiicer of the deck said to
him, 'Well, CorrignOi you've mnde a mess
of it this time���three days overdue aud
still In your potations.' And Corrlgan
made for him.
"It means ihytth In Some of the world's
navies even In time of peace for an enlisted man to raise his hand to an olficer,
but the punishment is a bit less severe iu
our outfit. Corrignn was beaten down
and overcomo after a terrific struggle.
He was put in double irons in thu brig,
aud general court martial charges were
Immediately preferred against him. Ho
was to be shipped up to Mure Island,
with an escort, on ono of tho up going
I':��� t 1:in 1; 1 boats, for his general court ninitial, nud the least he could expect WOS
dishonorable discharge uud three yenrs
at the smullest calculation at hard labor
In the Maru Island naval prison. There
wasn't to be a bont up bound for Sun
Francisco for ten dnys or so, und we
were booked to remain at Acapulco for a
couple of weeks,
"Corrignn was quiet and Incidentally
pretty sore in more ways than one when
he came out of his mescal trance. Inasmuch us the temperature of the brig was
about VJO degrees and tho steamer would
not be along for ten days, he was given
the liberty of tho ship during the day
aud only confined in the brig after 'pipe
down.' Tho top sergeant of the marine
guard and myself were ordered to watch
him closely to see thnt bu didn't go over
thu side.
"Corrignn's only chum and confidant
aboard wns another marine, nlso an
irishman���call him Mike Gallagher���
who, like Mulvnney, had often been 're-
Jooced' from the corporal's rate. He was
then n private. Corrigan aud Gallagher
were noticed to hnve their heads together
a good deal while tha former wns waiting for the steamer to come along and
take him up to the navy yard for trial,
but I didn't suspect anything.
"Oue afternoon Gallagher 'put In' for
liberty. Liberty parties used to leave
the ship In that port shortly before 8
o'clock in the evening. On the afternoon
before Gallagher put his name down for
liberty a young ensign had joined the
ship, arriving on a south bound Panama
boat. When the new ensign, who was
the officer of the deck, started to call off
the names of the men In the liberty party, among the first was that of Michael
Gallagher. When Gallagher's name was
called off, Jim Corrignn, spick and span
In his best uniform, stepped forward, su-
luted, said 'Here, sir,' nnd walked down
the Indder to the launch, The ensign
didn't know his face from Gallagher's,
having just joined the ship the day before. The 18 men in the liberty party
knew, though, nnd the audacity of Corrignn's move stunned them. They understood it instantly, however, and it wasn't
up to tbem to say anything.
"Tbe liberty party was checked ofT on
the hook, and nway went the cutter to
the shore, Corrignn sitting in the stern
sheets ns cool ss a cucumber. The other
meu in the cutter didn't say anything to
him, Men-o'-war's men nre not tulkn-
tlve under such circumstances. Corrignn
stepped off the cutter, made straight for
a place where he knew he could hire a
horse, and within hulf an hour after he
left the ship he was striking into the interior for the railroad. He had $1100 in
gold, the savings of a former enlistment,
along with him, He has never been heart)
of since.
"When the liberty pnrty left the ship,
Gallagher was hiding under a tarpaulin
on the to'gnllnnt fo'c'slc. When darkness fell with tropical suddenness, he let
himself down the anchor chains, swam
ashore, and the next morning he returned
with his liberty party, clean nnd sober.
I had missed Coriigau when I hunted for
him nt 'pipe down* to put him iu the brig
for the night I was responsible for him,
but I never suspected how the trick had
been turned until the day Gallairher wns
paid off, when he told tne about it in a
burst of rummy confidence. I never
'peached/ although the job came within
an nee of getting me 'busted' to the rate
of nn ordinary seaman*" ��� Washington

SHE  MATCHES BUTTONS.
Peculiar und Paying- nimtncm-i of Old
Nnrnli  Cohen.
In a little house just off Hester street,
says tho New York Herald, dwells nn old
woman who carries ou a most peculiar
trade. She is Sarah, or "Old Sal," as
she is more familiarly called, aud east
side residents know her well, aud most ot
them patronise her.
On the window pane of her little shop
is a sign which reads: ''Buttons Sold Inside, Any Hutton Matched, From Oue
Cent to a Nickel." Her stock in trade
is stored up in thousands of buttons iu
little heaps���pearl, glass, bone, jet, shell,
brass, cloth, silk, horn and every other
variety of button made.
It is snid thu old woman's business In
profitable and that she has managed to
save nbout $5,000 out of her curious occupation.
"You see," she said to me, "it is often
the case thnt a woman buys only enough
buttons for a dress, nml then, when b!i��
loses one, it is difficult to get it matched
ut a notion store. Those who know me
come along here, and I cun always do it
from my stock.
"I huve my regular customers, foi
most storekeepers around hero kuow me
and send their customers to me when
they are unable to suit them, and they
seldom go away without tho very tiling
they are after.
"Where do I get them from? Many ot
them come from juukshops, where ou tho
rags sold nre buttons. All tho rag dealers know I pay a fair price for buttons,
and they save them until they hnve n sufficient quantity, uud then they come to
me.
"Another way I obtain them is by visiting tho dressmakers, who often have
buttons left over, nnd their customers
seldom nsk fur them. These 1 can btiy
up very cheap. Although my little board
outside snys thnt the highest price 1
charge is 5 cents, my better clnss of customers do not hesitate to offer me a
quarter, or even 50 cents, for n button
that they hnve lost, In order to males
their garments look neat aud complete."

One morning, in the summer of 180(1. I

halted on the prnlrie. They were SOU
strong, and ninny of them were veternns

the muttering of distant thunder, sturthd
them.
Soon n scout enme In and reported thnt
an immense herd of budalo wus sweeping toward tho camp. The roar heard hy
tbe soldiers was the rattling of the herd's
hoofs. Soon a black mass wns seen hearing down, nnd behind It a cnvnlcade of
pursuing Indiana, 500 strong. They hnd
maddened the buffalo, hoping to capture
the (lain by stampeding the frightened
animals and causiug them to overrun the
soldiers.
Something caused the herd to open he-
fore it reached the aoldiers. it paigcd in
two columns, leaving the infantry, their
wagons, mules nud borses betweeu and
not 1100 feet from cither mass of the maddened beasts.
When the snvuges saw thnt their tnc-

suppression failed to prevent nn exhibition of their rage. They rode off In sullen

TWO DEAD
Fatal Explosion at the Ontario  Powder Co.
Mill.
Harry Gervan and William
Way  are  Instantly
Killed.
Hurry A. Gorvan mid William Wny,
both employees of tlm Ontiirio Powder
rjo,, at the factory opposite Five Mile
Point, ware Instantly killed hy an explosion yesterday aftewoon which also
toinlly destroyed the nowtlor 00111-
jniny'H piioaiuK linnse.
Thn aooldont ooimrred nt 11 O'olook,
Gerviin and Way wero packing cart-
ndges In the paoklna; bonse, They bad
been working steadily Hincn the noon
hour and hud in the honse with them
shout BOO pounds of dynamite, No
other employees worn with them, In
the other bntloing! Hevornl mnn weie
st work and in tho main nitrating
building Mr. Dan Smith, genera] malinger of the  powdor  company'8 plants,
wnH engaged with  several  workmen,
Suddenly thorn eaino an awful ronr
unci every experienced powder man in
the plnco know what had happened
Ibe workmen rushed from tho linild-
niKS and where only R moment liofoie
the packing house bad stood there was
bnt a vacant space,   Not a vestige ot
the bidding remained. Kvory particle of it had been wipod out an clearly
ns though lifted bodily nnd curried
away. Here and thoro wero pnrticlcH
of llesh scattered abont tho ground and
iu the nearby tioes bung hIiciIm of skin
nnd llesh. Abont 60 yards from tlio
snot where tlio building stood the
larger portion ol Hurry (lervnii's body
was fonnd. This consisted of the
buck portion of the trunk, thn nook nnd
the back of tho bead. The fuco nud
the front poition of tho body hnd heen
completely torn away. Tbe leg* woio
torn olf and tho nuns severed nt the
shoulders. Tho feet were found some
distance from tbe body, nnd on one of
these the sock had ronmined, tlio only
portion of tho clothing found.
Way was mutilated even more than
Gervau.    The only poition of his body
which still retained n lemblanoe ot
humanity was a leg from the hip down
to juBt below the knee. Tbis bad been
blown into the lnko and wns recovered
by the null employees. The reimiindoi
of tho body wus picked up in smnll
pieces.
At tbo timo of tho uccideut Ihe Ko-
kstioe was but a short distance from
Five Mllo Point. As soon us she could
get about sho crossed in tlio powder
mill and was boarded by Genernl Manager Smith who was brov.-ht to Nolson. In the absenoe of Gorou Arthur,
Dr. G. A. B. Hall was notified nud
airaiigeuients to visit tho sceno of til"
accident were at ouoo mode. Qeorge
Boer's stoam launch was secured and
two plain coIHuh placed aboard by D.
McAithnr oi Co. Iu the party which
the launch carried woro Thomas Mo-
Oammou, a cousin of Harry Gervau ;
Charles Premier, Will Lilly,. M. J.
Boble, J. Bnnyun aud Georgo Bell.
When the launch arrived at the mill
the mill employees bad gathered together nearly all of the piecos of the
bodies. Further search was mado,
however, and when this wns completed Iho remains were plaoed iu tho casket and bronght to Nelsou,whero they
were plaood iu tho undertaking rooms
of D.   MoArthnr & Oo.
How tbe acoident occurod it is impossible to state. About two ininin������
before the explosion one of the employes ol another building had visited
the packing boues aud had spoken
with Gervau about a fishing trip which
they weie to make. Gervau and Way
wine tneu employed iu puckiug cartridges as thoy bad been since uiomiug.
The third man had scarcoly entered
the building in whicli he worked,
when the explosion camo. A delay of
two minutes wonld have added his
name to tho death roll.
General Mauugor Smith wns seen
hy The Minor man shortly after his
return to Nelson.
"It is terrible," he said, "terrible,
indeed. Tho loss of the property is
uothing. Tho loss of the entire plant,
of evorythina I own, oould not hnve
alteeted ma as this has. I do not know
what caused the explosion and no ono

changing over from the packing of ono
size of cnrtritlge to a different size. A
little carelessuess nt that time might
have been responsible for the awful
accident,. Both meu 1 knew well and
respected highly."
Harry Gervau was well known in
Nelsou. Ho oame here two yenrsj ago
and has been employed in Capt.
Troup's olllcco and in the store of the
Nelson Hnrdwnre Oo. His parents,
Mr. and Mrs. H. A. Gervau, roBido in
Ottawa, nnd have beeu ooiumuniciitcd
*'"'. Harry was prominent in tho
Nelson  Minstrel ciroles.   Those  who
do not know him personally uml who
attended  the minstrel show  in tho
OperA House lust Friday night will recall bim as tbe end mini on tho left
side of the stage. To him more than
to Hiiyino was due the sucoess of the
Nelson Minstrels. He hnd many
friends in Nelson especially among the
young men of the town nnd wnshighlj
respected as uu honest aud upright
mini.
William Way had boen in NoIhoii
only a month. Ho oamo here fiom
Tweed! Out., where he was employed
in tlio Ontario factory of the Ontario
Powder Co. His parents, reside in
Tweed nnd a brother, Thomas Way,
wuh witli him at th.' powder mill burn.
Hi. parents have also been communicated with.
The news ol the aanidniit was rooeiv-
od in Nelson about II :1I0 o'olock. It
was only n few moments in spreading
and everywhere were heard expressions
of sorrow. The friends of Harry Gervau wero loath to believe that his life
bad beeu blotted out so suddenly. Only
a day or two ago ho had boeu in Nelsou, happy, ns he always was, and
with n pleasant greeting for everyone.
He had spoken with more than ono
about his position at the powder mill
and on several ooensious had jukingly
remarked that he expeoted to bo blown
sky high at any moment. "If I am,"
lie said to Charlie Prosser only a few
days ago, "I want you to"come to my
funeral wearing your white minstrel
hats."
"Ho little thought then," said Mr.
Prosser in sneaking to Tlm Miner man
last night, "that his oud waB so very
near. Harry was n splendid fellow
and all who knew him liked him. He
wus tho life of tho Minstrol Oompnuy
and of those witli whom he associated.
1 can't believe that tbe human flesh we
picked up this nfteruoou is thut of
Hurry Gerviin."
The powder mill began operation
three days ago and only a small
amount of dynamite was in the packing house. Thu building was a smnll
fraino avail, about 111x24 foot. Gervau and Way bad boon working in it
only since Wednesday morning. Way
was an experienced hand, while Gervau was new a': the work. He was a
nephew of Alex McGibbon, superintendent of the mill, and wns working
witli Wny in order to familiarize himself with the business.
