ALL, SETTLED NOW.
WAR SITUATION STILL UNCHANGED.
The Sorties, Skirmishes and Bombardments of the Week

London, Den. 81.-(4:80 11. m. )-The
War Offloe, when communicating at
about midnight rooieR ot thn mess-
aged from the Inhabitants of Kimberley. to tho Queen, and rf the Queen's
reply which was signed by Sii Arthur
John Biggs, Her Majesty's private
secretary, stated that no further news
had beon received up to that hour aud
nothing of importance has come fiom
other sources during the night.
The week's sorties, skirmishes, rec-
conuaisnnees aud bombardments, at
various points, where Ihe Britisli and
oers confront each other, so far ns can
be judged, bave had no effect upon the
genei-Hl   situation   at tbe   seat of war.
Ohieveley and Ladysmith are in full
communication. While the signalling
was in progress tlie Boers attempted
to muddle the messages with flashlights
from each extremity of theii long entrenched lines. The naval brigade took
advantage of tin opuortunity to shell
the Bofr positions, which were plainly
revealed by the crown lights. The
naval battery resumed tho shelling of
the Bner trenches on the morning of
December 29 bnt their, fire failed to
elicit any sign of life.
A dispatch from Capetown, dated
Wednesday, December 27, announces

herg.
that was necessary for the protection
of the German trade in that part of the
world. German commerce, he asserted, bad already suffered detriment
through the war in South Africa, and
now news oame of tbe seizure of a Ger-
man steamer by a British warship.
Herr Woermanu replied that the
Chamber hns already conside'ed the
question of representations with a
view of actiou in the matter. The
Ohamher, he continued, has been informed that the Btoamship company
owning the seized vessel, had telegraphed to Prince llohenlohe, the Imperial Uhanoellor, asking for Government intervention and it was declared
that nothing whatever had heen done
by the company which could in nny
way be regarded as a broach of neutrality.

the Attorney-General says:
"If the testimony submitted showed
a combination among railroad companies to restrniu commerce among the
several states I would not hesitnte to
invoke the temedy provided by the
anti-trust law, but to tako suoh action
upon the facts submitted would not
only ne futile, but absurd. If there be
\ remedy for the complaining shippers

Sandon Mine Owners' Com
promise is Rejected.
QRArHTE  MEN STRIKE
Bj High Handed Methods the Union is
Losing Whatever Public Sympathy
it Once Possessed.
The Sandon Miners' Union has
effectually stultified itself and has lost
what little claim it over had to pnblic
sympathy in the present unfortunate
labor trouble. There were some who,
in tbe earlier stages of the difficulty,
criticized the mine owners for taking
too high banded a stand iu the matter
and for infusing to think of a compromise. The Mine Owners' Association
has effectually answered these accusations and turned the tables on its opponents.
Somo little time back tin: Slocnn
Mine Owner's Association offered the
Miners' Union a compromise by stating their willingness to paying ham-
mersmen $8.25 for au eight-hour day.
This was splitting the difference between the mine owners aud tlie man
and showed that the former, nt nny
rate, were nctiug in good faith. The
Miners' Union made tlie following
counter proposition. They said they
would accept $8.25 for men working io
tbe stopes, but wanted $8.50 fur men
engaged in development work, and to
this added conditicns which as they
must hare known were tantamount to
a refusal to compromise at all. Thev
wanted an official recognition of the
Uuion ns representative of the men
nnd also nn undertaking to employ
none but union men with leave for the
union officials to visit the mines from
time to time to satisfy themselves that
this undertaking was lived np to.
These last two conditions were, of
course, impossihle unless the mine
owners weie willing to allow tho union to run their mines for them. Tins
arbitrary action of tho union is losing
them what little public sympathy they
possessed ns fast as it  lecnn.es known.
From tbe Granite mine also comes
an instance of the unreasonableness of
tbe union. Up till a comparatively
short time ago the Drumninnd shaft on
that property was being sunk by means
of a steam drill, ^the men receiving
$8 50 for an eight hour day. At the
depth of 250 feet the working with a
steam drill heenme unpleasant and was
suspended until the compressor plant
arrived This was installed and tho
other day the drill was started np
again with compressed air the men I
being given the same wages rs before
when the conditions of work were
more trying. The men struck for $4 a
dav whieh was mitutully refused and
they and their sympaihi/.ors tn the
number of about 80 went down tin
hill on Friday N edless to sny these
men will not be rceived hack nt the
��� Ira'nite even if ihey should �� ant to re-
'urnwhile such unreasonableness makes
the breach between the mine owners
and the union men wider than ever.
THE WEEK IN KOSSLAND.
News of the Mines���Sir   Charles Topper Speaks   There.
Rossland, B. C. Dec. 80.���The holidays and the closing of the Le Hoi for
five days have cut down the ore shipments fnr the week. In addition the

they displayed weakness. Their defense, especially Wilson at goal, was

would he embodied in a report to Congress, lint in other qunrti i- thoroughly reliable, and in a position to
have trustworthy and accurate information it is learned that favorable responses have b.eii made by (iieai Britain,Germany, France, Russia and Japan. There ih no doubt, it is thought
here, that Italy, the remaining cojn-
try addressed will make a favorable
answer, if it has not already done so.
According to information, the Brit-

hut the contents reached the other powers and great irritation was felt on account of the position Great Britain
took.show ing that the United StateB
and Great Britain were winking in

According to the information already
referred to. the German answer was
rnlber more vague Ihan the one which

being that an arrangement as tn free

The local event of the week, it not
0I ,l,e season, was the politic..! meeting on Friday night. There was a
pr-at gathering of Conservatives, demonstrating that the party is strong iu
Kelson, -.hat it is enthusiastic for the
veteran who leads it iu Federal affairs,
and that its principles are popular
Local Conservatives hava much reason
to be gratified at tbe welcome extended
to Sir Chares Tnpper.
He 1 sine as tlm appointed and ncceut-
,,l |e(,der of the parly, in view ol an
uarly general election, it is a duty
in, nmhenl on a leader to mako himself
known lo iln peoplo, [or he is oxpecl
,,1 i,, iii'gl.-i't no preparation necessary
to prosecute n successful campaign.  In
I 11 game oi politics tha prize is to
carry an election. It was as a preparation to win this prize that Sir
Charles Tnpper visited Nelson, and
ordinarily iu such c.ises the visited are
under less complimant than the visitor.
There was unusual and very genuine
cordiality, however, in the welcomi
extended to the leader on this occasion,
and iu respect to the compliment of it
the ordinary position was reversed. Sir
Charles has grown old in the service of
the country. Of all our living statesmen his name is the most widely
known. More than any of the others
he stands for the greater glory of the
Dominion and for the integrity of the
Empire. He is Before all else a Can id-
:an and a Briton. His patriotism is
most delightful in the fervor of its sincerity. It was natural that patriotic
citizens such as we have in Nelson
should b" anxious to meet such a man,
and whether of his paity or not to
show by their reception of him that
they knew how to appreciate his loyalty and devotion to the highest interests of the Empire as a whole.
Bill of more practical significance
was ihe visit of Mr. Charles Wilson,
the leader in embryo of a Provincial
Conservative    party.    He  came  with
II message that was entirely new in its
nature. For the first time a direct appeal has been made to the people of
Nelsou to divide on Federal party
lines in Provincial as well as Dominion affairs, tt was none the lest novel
because expected, and it will he surprising if the occasion does not mark a
p***v departure in local politics. Con
servative leaders iu convention assembled have declared for such a division,
nnd Mr. Wilson is appealing to the
party all over the Province to support
the movement. It was bound to
come. Nothing could well be more unsatisfactory than tbe political situation
us it exists today, nnd the wisest heads
cannot imagine any possible permanent improvement until the people divide on clearly marked and intelligible lines. The invitation to do this
that was extended to electors in all
sections of the Province will make a
stir, we shall he quite safe in assuming, that is bound to introduce new
conditions into our local political
methods.
in   the   Proviuce.    Tho   climate
aro  uot favorable
in its spread   here, bnt  it is none  the
99a imperative to tight it off.
***���     ' 	
''It is to be noted, " says Th: New
Westminster Columbian," that in the
Manitoba elections all the seats showing less than 20 majority went to the
Cons6i vatives." It is also to be noted
that all those seats were formerly held
by the Liberals. To wrest six seats
from the enemy is achievement enough
for one party, without bothering their
heads about majorities. Men who are
sensible of the serious affairs of politi-
il life have not time to waste over
-nch childi'h considerations.
Among the slaughtered Bills of tho
last session of tbe Dominion Parliament, which are to be revived in the
next, it is worthy of notice that Otta-
\vn rumor does not Include tbe Bill to
mend or ond the Senate. Probahly the
Premier hns discovered that the Upper
chain ber is giving general satisfaction as it is, tbe discovery being hastened by the increased app.,intmenfs of
Liberals to that branch of the Federal
Legislature.
The Minor wishes all its readers a
Ilaopy New Year. This includes the
editor of Mr. Houston's paper, who is
cue of the most diligent of them. May
he live long to fight his mud batteries.
Today we are taking leave of tbe
year only, not of the century. There is
a course of the seasons yet to complete
before we can celebrute the double
event.    May we all be alive to do it.

On Wednesday last The Vancouver
World published some political rumors
winch a correspondent at Nairn i nm
snid wire onrrent tbere. Ono was to
tbe effect that Lieutenant-3ovumoi
Molnnes was about to enter the Cuhi-
net nt Ottawa,taking the seat which his
sun was snid to have resigned or was
going to resign several months ago. A
doable purpose would be seived by
tliis: His Honor would reasliso his
longing for Cabinet distinction, and
the Government would strengthen itself in the Province by giving it representation. It will be reasonably sa'e
nut to attach too much credence to
Uns story, Mr. Mclnnes is supposed
to know as well as the next man on
which side Ins bread is buttered. He
will soarcel) throw up the Governorship for the dubious honor of being
defeated as a Minister a few months
hence, And although Sir Wilfrid
Laurier may be shallow enough to im-
iiuine thai such �� transparent net may
be safely Bpread In the sight of the
British Columbia bird, he has colleagues who know it would be a vain
experiment at this late day, It sincere
in tlie desire to give this Province
Cabinet representation, they would
not have postponed action until it be-
oama so obvious to all closo observers
that their term of offloe wns nearing

MAYORALTY    CONTEST.
To the i litizens of Nelson :
In response to numerous requests
from business men. property '.wneis
and ratepayers, I oiler myself as a candidate for Mayor of thu ('ity of Nelson
'it the approaching Municipal Elcc-
tions.
Briefly stntpd. my platform is as follows :
If elected it will be my earliest endeavor to nssist in more firmly establishing Nelson as the wholesale distributing centre of the Kootenay Conntry
���the position for which she has been
so admirably designed by nature,
In fnrtherun e of this idea, I will
continue my consistent advocacy of the
construction of a wharf which will
meet present and future requirement"
i f the wholesale and other business interests.
I believe that the City has leached
thnt stage when permanent street improvements hnve become nu absolute
nenessitv and that the cost should he
net, as fur ns feasible, from current
ii venue and should the Citiztns see fit
to entru-f nie with the oflice of Mayor.
it will he my aim to carry onl u well
devised system of street improvements,
II will be my uilii y to oppose lhe
borrowing of money unless the sumo be
used for the increase or establishment
of Puhlio Works producing n I. venue
to the Taxpsy. rs.
I am opposed to nny increase in the
alary of Mayor, which would necessarily involve n reduction in salaries
now paid an efficient stall' of ollicials,
or au increased burden to the taxpayers.
1 mu strongly in favor of maintaining the Fire Department in a position
of thorough efficiency aud wonld advise the adoption of modern equipments including a Fire Alarm System
and the purchase of a chemical engine
which would effect a reduction in all
Fire Insuraiice.
It will he mv consistent policy to
safeguard the taxpayers against any
attempts on the part of corporate bodies, carrying on business in Nelson, to
encroach upon the rights of the Citizens.
In my opinion a sufficient amount
nf money should be expended upon the
Pnrks of the City so that they will provide the Citizens with recreation
grounds and opportunities for healthful
enjoyment.
On all municipal works mv policy
will be to employ bona-flderesidents of
Nelson and to maintain the public
standard rate of wages
I believe that the Public Schools in
Nelson should he under the control of
the City and that every effort should
be m nl'e to establish a High School in
our midst.
In concluding I wish to say that in
the event of my election I will consider it my duty to share with the
Council tile responsibility of the Civio
administration believing, us I do, that
the assumption of entire authoiity bv
one individual is subversive of all const, tut iouiil Governmenti whether
Municinal or otherwise, Yours respectfully,
FRANK PLETOHER.

chief promoters of the liberties of this
country, that has laid them open at

barristers a lae who is one of the
heads of an aimed and active opposition to the power and the interests of
Great. Britain. It is Martinus Theusis

have alluded.
