Tenth Year
Nothing Has Yet Been Heard
of the Transports-
the bombardment today but no damage
has been done.''
FEELING   IN   LONDON
Germany   Observing   Strict   Neutrality.
Another Aimy Corps���At the
Guildhall Banquet.
London, Nov. fl.- The War Olllce has
reoeived the following dispatoh from
General Buller, dated Capetown, Wednesday evening, November ti:
"Colonel Kekewioh telegraphs from
Kimberley, Nov. ti, that all is well and
there have.been no serious attacks as
yet. A slight bombardment did no
damage. Information from Mafeking
shows that place was   safe October 27.
Colonel Plumer bad n successful en-
gagement near Fort Tuli, Oct. 27.
(leneial White reports by pigeon post
that Ihe wounded ttutl some civilians
Irom Ladysmith have been removed
four miles down tho railroad by arrangement with Genera] Joubert, to a
neutral place to save them from bombardment. Ninety nine wounded from
Dundee have been sent in under a flat;
of truce. They are all doing well. The
bombardment was discontinued November 4, and 5, and it is expected to
recommence November fi."
Tbe absence of stirring war news
and the rehabilitation in tbe estimation
of the public of General White, who
since bis revctsn ut Nicholson's Nek
certainly appears to have used his
central position to successfully strike
at different points of the circle of investment thus restoring confidence in
Ins ability to bold tbe Boers in check,
have permitted public attention to
momentarily revert to the political
features of ihe South African conflict.
Lord Salisbury at the Lord Mayor's
banquet tonight will outline the Government policy in regard to the future
government of the Transvaal and
Orange Free States, and explain that
tho references iu the Queen's speech
to "military operations" (not "war")
and restoring peace and good government to thttt portion of "my Empire"
meant nothing more or less than
that, in the opinion of the Govern
ment, President Kruger, by making
war on the Quetn, bad destroyed nil
claims to independence granted by the
conventions >.l 1^81 and 1N8-1, and consequently the country had reverted to
ils previous status and is theoretically
part of the Queen's dominions. The
Associated Press pointed out at the
time, that the phraseology of the
(,ii pen's -������. . ��� ,   .       ,    . .  . ; , ;. .

had already ceaspfl to exist as sspi rate
nations. But if Salisbury Is prepared
at this tarn stage of th< operations to
rtefinitl ly announce the policy of the
luture when nppureutly so many problems remain to be solver), both during
and after thn war, h�� must have already reached more definite understandings with several of the Powers
thon tbe public is aware of. Tbe
Premier's speech, therefore, is awaited
With unusual interest, and it seems
certain lie will at lesist he able to announce that the talk of European intervention is groundless.
Orange River, Caps Colony, Monday,
Nov. (S._The Boers investing Kimberley have been rcintorced by 2,000
'"en and have succeeded in coralling
about ��5,000 worth of stock belonging
to Kimberley merchants, which was
intended for sustenance of the town.
London, Nov, 9.-The Colonial Office
nus received a telegram from the Governor of Natal giving ��� copy of the
piReon post message received hy the
remier from the commandant of vol-
���"iteers.   It is as iollows:

London, Nov. I).���General Joubert,
the latest advices would indicate, drew
in his horns after Friday's engagement
and has since withdrawn the southern
Boer contingent leaving only ourposts
on the line from Ladysmith to Colenso. The Boers who occupied Colenso
about the middle of last week retired
without damaging Bulwer bridge oyer
the Tugela river or tbo railroad as far
north as tbe village of Nelthorpe, seven miles south of Ladysmith. Evidently they nurse a hope of eventually
utilizing both in their descent on Pietermaritzburg. Meuawhilo the British
are able to use both, as tbey have done
in running up an armored train which
may at the prosent moment be covering the advance of the Estcourt forces.
At Estcourt and Pietermaritzburg
tho defensive works have been greatly
strengthened within the last few days
mid tbey are now believed capable of
holding (heir own against any Botr
force which General Joubert wonld at
tbe present juncture send against
either town. Both are likely to be
strengthened before tbo week is out by
a further naval force and even by the
first detachment of General Buller's
army corps.
NO TRANSPORTS ARRIVE.
None of the troop ships have arrived. The one whi :h it was predicted
might reach Capetown at the earliest
on Monday is as vet unannounced and
even when it does arrive there it will
have three days steaming to reach
Durban. As many as six transports
with 4,n00 troops were expected to be
iu Capetown harbor by this time, but
the War Olllce last evening issued a
statement to the effect that tbo only
arrivals at Capetown wera the Sumatra
from Durban, with wounded, the
Southern Cross from Gibraltar with
mules end the collier Wenwoe.
Of course it is possible that dispatch
boats have been sent to meet the troop
ships witn instructions to proceed direct to Durban and jn that event the
War Office statement that not oue had
arrived at Capetown would he literally accurate, even though several
should be half way between Capetown
and Durban.
AT   MAFEKING.
Tbe situation looks brighter at Mafeking, where Boers are apparently disheartened at the unexpected resistance,
a large body of their force having been
detached to the south to assist in the
investment of Kimberley around
which the cordon is drawing tighter.
Evidently the Boers intend to make
a concentrated effort to capture Kim-
beriey and their arch enemy, Cecil
Rhodes.
The reported departure of a Boer
contingent from Pretoria with Ger-
iiiiui artillery gunners moving in it
southerly direction is taken to.mean
co-operation in the invasion of tbe
nnrih part of Cape Colony, an undertaking whioh has thns far not progressed very rapidly.

GERMAN NEUTRALITY.
Berlin, Nov. 9.���As a result of instructions from the Emperor, a military order has been issued to commanders of distri ts, in which Mis Majesty expresses his wish that no Prussian officers be granted leave to go to
Scuth Africa. Tbo order adds that
everything is to be done to prevent former Prussian officers from taking part
in the conflict in Sonth Africa, his
purpose being to avoid every appearance of a violation on tho part of Germany of that striot neutrality which
the Emperor  says  shonld be observed.
THE GUILDHALL BANQUET.
London, Nov. 9.���At tha Guildhall
banquet the Marquis of Salisbury,Lord
Wolseley, Mr. Ritchie, Lord George
Hamilton, Lord Halsbury, the Lord
Chief Justice, the Duke of Marlborough and a few minor diplomats wero
present. Mr. Chamberlain was absent.
Lord Salisbury and Lord Wolseley
wero warmly cheered as they passed
from the reception in the library into
the banqueting hall. The Lord Mayor
proposed "The Ministers" in a speech,
and denounced the "ignorant arrogance of tho invader," dwelling on
tho fact that Sir Alfred Milner, in
spite of herculean efforts was unable
to "prevail with the overbearing, corrupt oligarchy, therefore, others of our
ohampijus havo tho business In band. "
Contlnuedon   Fourth Page.
New York, Nov.   9.���The Tribune's
Paiis correspondent writes:
"The Anglo-phobia epidemic raging
in the French press is daily beoomiug
more acute. The Nationalist, Jew-
baiting, and clerical press���tbe same
papers that constituted themselves the
champions of tbe general, staff during
the DTeyfus affair���are straining every
none so as to stir public opinion so as
to arrive at war with England. In
reading tho Patrie and Croix, one
might suppose that France and England were already at w>u. The editorial language aud epithets are now
more violout than any that appeared
in either the American or Spanish
newspapers during the Spanish war,
and probably exceod in malignity and
abuse all past achievements of the
French in criticizing tbe conduct of a
nation witb whioh France is at peace.
Too much weight should not ho attached to their frantic ravings, but it
is impossible to gnago correctly the
trend of national feeling in France,
without taking in consideration the
stormy elements which are constantly
at work like (ho Bonlungiso* of the last
decade, to adroitly enlist and concentrate all the floating units of discontent.
"One or two passages taken at raL
dom from tbe Patrie may enuuio observing Americans to form a idea of
tho foroign policy the Nationalists
aro urging on the Government. "Help
the Boers nnd avenge Fashoda," is tho
advice of that Millevoy, who says:
" 'The British foreign office has deliberately falsified all the dispatches from
tbe seat of war where in spite of all
official accounts matters are going very
badly for England. Thousands of
Frenchmen are burning to join the
Boers and fight against England. We
don't care at present to furnish further
details beoause we still havo hopes
that we may be able to send to the
South African Boers more substantial
aid than mere good wishes. Ah I
Bravo Boers don't waste your cartridges, aim carefully and hit the officers. England should be made to suffer
and expiate. British hatred has never
missed an opportunity yet to strike at
French   breasts.    Examples   of    such

when Frenchmen may kill Englishmen is now open. Notico is hereby

sport a most tempting one?'
"Insulting caricatures of Queen Victoria appear in the Boulevard newspapers accompanied by libellous and indecent legends.
"The Patrie publishes almost overy
day extracts from alleged conversations
with Mr. Chamberlain who is represented as declaring that 'it is tbo policy of the British Cabinet to suppress
the Dutch in South Africa and afterwards the French in Canada and Mauritius. '
"The morning papers have long accounts of an interview with Dr.Leyds,
tbo special representative in Europe
of tho Transvaal, who argues that the
Transvaal baa every thing to gain by
remaining independent and tbat ber
mining laws are the most liberal of
any in tbe world and prevent capitalists from obtaining monopolies. Iu the

for them which will astound the world.

LORD MAYOR   INDUCTED.
Germany  Will  Also Demand  the Open |
Door  There���The  Emperor's
Visit to England.
New (fork, Nov. 9.���A dispatoh to
The Tribune from London says:
"Tbe Gorman Emperor has again
ucceeded in commanding the attention
of Europe and increasing his personal
prestige and influence. He has enter-
taiued tbe Czar and Czarina of Russia,
who had been visiting their relations
in Hesse, and tnere were conferences
between Count Muravieff and the
German Chancellor and other high
dignitaries of State. These courtesies
were a concession to the old school of
dink many, wliich, ns trained hy Bi?-
mnrck. believed that the highest interests of Gremanj were promoted by
a good understanding and secret agreements with Rus-ia.
"The day fixed for the meeting of
the two sovereigns was also chosen for
the official announcement of various
3ecrel agreements made with England
in advance of the German Emperor's
visit to the Queen. These include the
renunciation of English rights iu Samoa in favor of Germany. Compensations for England were found in the
cessation of two easterly islands of the
S domon group nnd the abandonment
��� ' German rights in the Tonga group
��� id Savage islands,   the  abolition   of
pruian consular jurisdiction in Zanzibar and an arrangement for the delimitation of British and German
frontiers in the Hinterland of Togo-
land. These exohanges of territory
and jurisdiction aro too intricate to bo
understood except by experts of the
Royal Geographical Society, although
the leader writers make a brave attempt to explain them in today's London journals. What is of the highest
significance is the evidence that England and Germany are entirely in accord and are standing by each other.
No diplomatist believes that the Berlin
announcement, confirmed by the foreign offices here, is a complete disclosure ot the secret agreement between
England and Germany.
"The deepest things are still unre-
vealed, but enough is laid bare to
prove that Lord Salisbury has secured
a tree hand in South Africa and tbe
co-operation of Germany in preventing
European intrigue or intervention,
whih tin- i.ri ish army is righting a
great battle in a re aote qunr'er of n.e
hmpiro. Bismarck's secret understanding was with Russia. The German Emperor has become England's
ally, and he allows the world to know
it on the day when be embraces the
Czur aud drinks bis health. He also
justifies the preparations of the Royal
family for welcoming him to England
with the Duke of Conuaught and tho
Duko of York to salUe him at Sheer-
ness, with the Prince of Wales to meet
him at the station at Windsor, with
the Queen herself to stand at the head
Of tho grand staircase with the portraits of his grandfather and father to
look downward upon him from the
walls of the famous tapestry room ttud
with all England outsl le ready to proclaim him u Royal fiiend.
"Another coincidence which does
not escape observation bore is that the
revelation to diplomatic ciroles is made
the day after the Ameiicati elections,
in which tho party in power has secured a geueral verdict, of popular approval. Diplomatists hero assume with
confidence that England has uot sacrificed American friendship or interests
in tho Sanioau settlement and that the
partition of territory between tho
United StateH and Germany has received tho sanctiou of tbe three powers
concerned iu tho tripartite convention
which has ceased to be a practical
method of governing the group. Leading writers for the press take this view
and also forecast a hearty Germany
co-operation in the Stato Department's
new policy requiring European guarantees for an open door in the far East.

Louisville, Ky., Nov. 9. ���10 a. m.���
As the returns and corrected reports
from belated counties come in, the
situation in Kentucky is unchanged.
Both tho Democrats and Republicans
aro claiming the election this morning. Charges of attempted fraud are
being made by both parties, and especially so at the Republican headquarters iu this city.
Senator Doboo and several prominent
Republicans were at headquarters onrly
this morning. They received returns
from every county in the state and say
Taylor's majority will not fall below
5,000. Private advices from ex-Senator Blackburn, at Frankfort, tiro of an
encouraging nature to the Democrats,
for they say Goobol has carried the
state by four thousand plurality, aud
that the figures wheu thoy are completed will show his election and tbe
the eleotion of the Detnooiaitc ticket
by that plurality. It will take an irti-
cial count to decide, and thero are already many contests in sight.

Washington, Nov. 9.���Admiral
Dewey nnd Mrs. Mildred Hazen
wore married quietly at tbe rectory of
St. Paul's Catholic Church, this citv,
shortly before 10 o'clock this morning.
Tlm ceremony wus performed by Rev.
James F. MoKitn, pastor of the
church. Tho ceremony was of the simplest character according to the riles
of tho Catholic Chtueh, and the only
witnesses besides the officiating clergy
man were Mrs. Washington McLean
and Mrs. Ludlow, wife of Admiral
Ludlow, mother nnd sister of the
bride, and Lieutenant Callowell,
Dewey's secretary. Arrangements for
the wedding weie made with all the
secrecy which hns attended the whole
affaii. As Dewcv is not a Catholic, al
special dispensation was required for
the performance of tho ceremony. Admiral and Mrs. Dewey left at 12 :46 p.
ni. for New York.
A dispatch from Victoria to Seattle,
dated Nov. 8, says:
Although the naval officials will not
say so officially, some do not hesitate
to say in the course of conversation
that tho depot at Esquimalt is being
placed in readiness for any possible
emergency.
The first class cruiser Amphion,
which left for England some months
ago, has been intercepted, nnd ordered
to return here. The Aiethusa will also
shortly leave England to join this
squadron. The fleet is being put in
the best of condition, thn repair work
being most huriicdly made. Two vessels are in the dock togeiher, the
Phaeton and Iearus, and the others
will follow, the flagship going in last.
For some time past the sappers and
engineers havo been working at Fort
Maoaulay and at Red Hill on the bluff
opposite to the entrance, of the harbor,
constructing submarine mines.
Special orders nre being received���
all in cipher���by the admiral daily.and
tho whole station is in consequence
one of activity, preparing for some
thing.    But what?
Some of the officers say that there is
nothing in the talk of intervention in
the present war by the Powers. Tho
bustle is not so much occasioned by
that trouble as by the threatened olash
between Japan and Russia in the far

The Times from Montreal says:
England does not intend to bo taken
unawares in any move that may be
made in the Pacifio as a result of a
possible combination of two or more
hostile powers against her interests in
that quarter of the globo. It is learned
that a strong detachment of marines,
whose sailing fr. m England was uot
announced, will arrive at Halifax tomorrow- or tbo day after en route to
Bsqnimult, the strongest British
Stronghold ami . aval base in the Pacific Ocean. The fortifications at Esquimau are -ilso undergoing considerable strengthening and enlargement
and a large number Ol heavy guns have
recently beon shipped across the continent to be mounted at tbat fortress.
The reason for the hurried strengthening of Esquimalt lies in the apprehension of the Imperial Government
that Russia may seize tho opportunity
of the Boer war to attack England in
the Bust. Recent concerted action of
the Russian and French fleets iu the
Mediterranean, which drew oot a protest from Great Britain, taken in conjunction witb significant utterances by
the  Russian   and   French press,   may

A WICKED SUGGESTION.
Tho reputed editor of llio Inland
Sentinel, published at Kamloops, is a
member of the Legislature who desires
it to be understood that he stands close
to the Government and enjoys its confidence. We do uot know that much
significance would be attached to any
statement or opinion to which expression is given in that paper but for the
fact of this pretension, whioh, for all
we know,may be a perfectly valid oue.
It has been known to echo Ministerial
sentiment, aud by faithful service has
earned the right to be regarded as an
organ. It may be, therefore, that iu
respeot to all matters of important
public policy it speaks by inspiration.
In a reoent issue it had much to say
of the report that tho mine operators
of tho Slocan are importing foreign la-
hoi, in the course of which occurs the
following :
"The Silver-Lead Mine Owners' Association consists of a few represents,
fives of alien mine owners, who are de
termined to set the Eight-Hour law
at defiance, and any other law for that
matter that affects their pockets, if at
all possible."
It remarks on tho situation, and
says among other things that although
110 disturbance is anticipated, "the
miners make frequent mention of the
belief that the imported laborers ar"'
brought in for the purpose of inciting
them to violence.'' Such observations,
from such a quarter, are calculated tc
excite a feeling of very grave uneasiness, because under the circumstances
they are unavoidably associated with
the Government. And what they suggest is that the Government is inclined
rather than otherwise to provoke tho
sharpest kind of conflict between capital and labor in tbe mining regions of
British Columbia. We shonld be glao
if such a conclusion were impossible,
but unfortunately it is tbe most natural ono that presents itseli'.
It is to the discredit of the members
of the Association, so it is intimated,
that they are alieu mine owners, and
because of that the public are invited
to regard them with disfavor. For
many years mining in this Province
languished for the want of capital. We
did everything that was possible to
induce it to come. We pleaded to it
and prayed for it, and assured capitalists iu the United States and Great
Britain that if they would only put
money into the mines hero they would
be rewarded with rich returns. Om
eutreatios and persuasions had their
effect, and a few years ago capital began to come in, minos were developed,
the industry became a prosperous one,
and the situation altogether was full of
unbounded promise, Tho capitalists
naturally followed their capital and
became mine owners, and now tbat
we huve them we hoap contu.aely ou
their heads, say thoy are aliens who
defy the laws, aud suggest to the public that their presence is au evil that
ought not to be tolerated. This is
the encouragement wo are now giving
to capital.
A prejudice of this kind is a fitting
introduction to tho physical violence
that is suggested in conuoction with
it. Why should the miners suppose the
purpose iB to incite them to violence?
Are they obliged to fly into a passion
because other men are willing to engage in the work they refuse to do?
What right have thoy to complain, or
where is
hint thrown out by tho oigan.but Canadian miners who have had respect for
law and order instilled into them have
too much regard for themselves and
for the public reputation to be moved
by it.
Citizens of Nelson have a personal
regard for Mr. Hume, and for that reason will always take an interest in
anything lie may have to say on matters of public policy. He has given
The Miner a short interview, the only
important statement in which is that
he desired, in connection with the
Eight-Hour law, to oxclude Italians as
Well as Mongolians from working in
our mines. In matters of this kind
Mr. Hume is entitled to hold any
views he pleases; but Nolson is not
flattered by the knowledge that its
member, who is a Minister of the
Crown, could display such ignorance
of international law and the comity
of nations as to make a statement ol
this kind. Italy is a civilised Power,
having intimate and friendly relations
with Great Britain, and would have
just cause to piotest against such discrimination as Mr. Hume would make.
It Is high time he knew that he
would not be permitted to put such a
law on tbe Statute book. It would
not hurt him, either, if he remembered with some evidence of . gratitude
that of all the countries of Europe.Italy
is the only oue whose sympathy and
moral support go out to Great Britain
in her quarrel with the Boers.

The trial of joung  Anderson for the
Molsou's   Bank   robbery,   which  has
just ended in  an   acqoittal, has  more
surprising features ihan any connected
with the Ponton  affair.    An  amateur
detective   from  Chicago  went  up to
Wiunipeg to earn the reward, and  by
association wilh Anderson, so he says,
wormed out of him the  secret   of  the
robbery. This may not be true, but the
curious thing connected with it is that
the  stolen   money   was   found.    How
could Davis find the money if   he  had
not discovered   the secret from Anderson?   To declare Anderson innocent is
to say that  Davis  was either  himself
the burglar, or that he was afterwards
taken into  the  confidence of the  real
culprit,who repented his crime and desired to restore  the  money.    The case
was mysterious enough before, but the
lesult of  the trial leaves  it  more  so
than ever.
Mr. Hume professes to be confident
tbat the Government will have a working majority throughout the next session of the Legislature, We are afraid
Mr. Hume's confidence is not as genu-
ine as he would havo it appeur. There
were only five at the best. Two of
those, Mr Martin and Mr. Higgins.
have revolted beyond doubt; they will
vote want of confidence as often as desired. A change of two votes will
leave a majority cf cue, and if Mr.
Hume's Parliamentary knowledge and
experience were not of the scantiest he
would know that Governments in Canada have never been able to get along
with that.

CLOSING THE ROAD
A HEW THOROUGHFARE 18 TO BE
OPENED UP.
Contract Has Been Ltt, So That Heavy
Traffic May Be Resumed in
a Pew Days.
In
yesterday's; Minor mention was
niatlo of theolosiugup of tho tliorough-
fiive whioh for so long lias been considered public property, leacliug from
tho city boundary to the Nelson &
Fort hheppurfl Railway station and
BognstoVfn. As already stated this
roadway was renll> private property,
tlio iialits in whioh have been acquired
by the Nelson Tramway Oo. The faot
of tho company asset!ing their rights
and refusing to allow traffic to pass
over the strip of land, which extends
for about rive blocks eastward of the
liiiuiicipnl limits, caused considerable
inconvenience to tho merchants ot tho
city, some of ���whom in order to get
their goods from the railway terminus
were obliged to ship them to Five Mile
Point, and then have them brought iu
by water. Traffic was practically sue-
paneled between the railway station
and tho City, but it is satisfactory to
learn that arrangements have been
made which will obviate the existing
trouble and that within a few days
freighting can bo resumed.
There appears to he considerable misunderstanding as to the true state of
the case Homo are disposed to blame
the tramway people for over-hasty action in tho matter, aud for lack of iu-
terest in the trade of the city. That
thoy had tho right to clnso the ioid-
way, having acquired it by purchase
for their system or tramway, is very
freely conceded. But a general impression seems to prevail that the eoni'
pany took action without giving an
opportunity to those interested to secure a right-of-way or *o provide another route.
A representative of Tho Minor yesterday proceeded to investigate. Going down to tho scat of tionhlo he
found the old thoroughfare blocked up
by llio tramway people t.t both ends,
and observed a few half-loads of merchandise being freighted around by
way of tlio Hume Addition and Bogus
town. Hon. J. Fred Homo, Minister
of Miues, nud Mr. J. A. Turner, Gold
Commissioner, had   been on the scene.
Mr, Turner was subsequently seen
and said : " I think we havo got over the
diffloulty. We have lot a contract for
the opening up of a piece of road from
Muir's old stables to the Nolson & Fort
Sheppard road, a couple of blocks, that
will give an excellent roatl. Men are
at work on it now, I think,and it will
bo finished iu a couple nf days, the
contractor expects. Tho cost will bo
under $600. The tramway people
wanted $1,000 in tho first it stunoe,
theu they came down to $800, and I
now understand that tbey are anxious
lo make some other arrangement, hut
they are too Into. Towards the new
piece of loud tho Government contri-
bntes $150, and tho railway company
aud oily people makt un the balance.
I think this will I e u Rati if cton '-
��� m
asked to state his views said: "i
think there is a great deal of misunderstanding   on   this    subject,      llie
���hem tbat a contract  bad alreadv been
l*t for  the  building   of another road
winch   1   understand   is thn case."
Aid. Fletcher when seen said: "We
have let n contract for the building of
a road that won't coBt much over $400,
and it will be ready for traffic in a
couple of days. I think the Tramway
people noted very hoggish in this matter. Tf they had given us nine or ten
day's notice of their intention to close
the road, wo might have been able to
make some arrangement, but they take
and elose up the road, leaving some
thirteen cars of stuff at the station,
which could not bo brought iu. The
fact is that they must open up a roadway there themselves, and it wonld
have been no inconvenience to them to
have left it open. "
Aid. Hillyer when spoken to on the
point said: "Of course the Tramway
Company wero virtually entitled to
close the road if they wished to do so,
but what 1 object to is that they did
u il give ns fair notice, that we might
make some arrangement. I believe
they had the road closed up when we
got their letter at the Council telling
us that they were about to close it."
Aid. McKillop was seen, and while
ho regretted that the thoroughfare had
been closed, ho said that theie was uo
doubt the ComfJtiuy had a legal right to
close it.
Aid. Kirkpatrick said that the merchants of the City had suffered considerable inconvenience by reason of
tho closing up of the roadway.and believed that the Tramway Company
might have left it open without retarding their work or sustaining any
loss. "Before they took such a step,"
said the Alderman, "they should have
given timely warning. No doubt they
have the legal right to close up the
road, but I think it very bad policy on
their part to have done so.''
Woik wbb yesterday begun ou the
now piece of road, which runs from
Muir's stables, a little above the brew
cry, to the old main road, connecting
at a poiut where the Tramway Company's proprietory interests cease.

have aeiou very fairly, Ton days before
the closing of tbe road they wrote a
letter to tho Otty Council stating that
thoy were about to do so, and that
they were prepared to entertain any
reasonable offer for the keeping opea
of tho roatl. I wont down and saw
Mr. C. Halifax Hall, by whom Ihe letter had been written to the board. 1
pointed out to him that the City had
no power to expend money on streets
outside the corporate limits. He said
he did not think we had, hut that be
considered it his duty to notify the
City Council that it. was intended to
close the road, as he had slated in
his letter the company were willing to
entertain any reasonable proposition on
the suhjoet Then there was a second
letter written to tho Council asking
if anything could be done. I saw Mr.
Hall again after this, and explained
that tho City could do nothing, but
that as private citizens some arrange*
ment might be arrived at, and that if
a subscription list wore to be opened
up I would contribute $26. This was
the lust conversation I had vt itli him
until yesterday. Yesterday 1 asked
Oapt. Duncan if ghis company would
meet ine and go over the matter. Wo
met, and I askotl what wo could do to
secure the right-of-way. Thoy said
that they had asked $800 for it, but
that they weie still open to entertain
any reasonable olTor. 1 asked if they
wonld consider un offer of $0110. Thoy
said they would, and asked me if I
could arrange a meeting of tbe citizens
for today. I thought I could, and fixed uiioii II o'clock. I next wenttu see
Mr. Roderick Robertson, who 1 understood wns looking after this business.
He referred mo to Mr. Jus. Lawrence.
I saw him, and ho said they would
have nothing to do with tho Street Car
company that thoy would open up a

of some  fifty-three cords of wood.
In yesterday's Miner it was stated
that considerable rock was being encountered in the excavation for the
water service ou Josephine street.
Whilo blasting last forenoon, an extra
heavy charge of powder or a badly protected ground work, had the effect; of
producing a shower rock that did a lot
of harm. Several windows were broken in the immediate vicinity, and
some of the boarding of the Clarke
House was smashed in. Luckily no
nun was seriously hurt.
Tho bear .lilfleulty at the Last
Chance mine on Toad Mountain has
been only partially got over. The bear
which has been riposiug at the end of
the 20i|.foot tunnel, is reposing yet,
but his companion which hud got into
the habit of wandering round tho camp
has come lo nn untimely end. The
men were coming up the hill the other
day after spending pay day in town,
got within 16 feet of the bear, IIret 1
and missed. Yesterday they had better
success as they despatched the marauder alter pumping twenty shots into
him.
Hon. J. Fred Hume is back again in
Nelson for a brief stay. He reports
business brisk at the Coast cities, and
says that they do not hear much nf the
Eight-Hour law down there. Asked
if he had heard about the introduction
of Italian labor in the Slocan he replied : "Yes, I road about it in one of
your papers. Inn it is uot my fault
that a clause was not inserted in the
Bill precluding Italians as well as Chinese from working in mines." Mr.
Hume said there was nothing new
in the political situation.
The case of Robert Kerr, a contractor, charged wi.'h a hreaoh of the
Water Clauses Act, was called before
the Mayor yesterday afternoon, but ns
His Worship considered that it being
a cause iu which the City was interested, he should not adjudicate, he referred it to Mr. J. A. Tnrner. Ken is
charged with making a water connection without, permission, ho having
been refused consent in consequence of
failing to pay for water previously supplied. Mr. W. A. Galliher appeared
for tho prosecntfon on nehalf of the
City, and Mr. S. S. Taylor for the defense. The case was adjourned until
Saturday.

!     MINING NEWS.     |
X+i+m++++i ������������+��������� �����������������
Quite a number of miners returned
yesterday morning from the Whitewater mine on Rover Creek, whither they
bad Rune to examine the ground with
a view to bidding on tho work to be
done on the pronerty. They all expressed themselves as surprised at the
width of the lode and the amount ot
ore already in sight.
The Whitewater was one of the
first mines operated in this district,
and at that time tho gold returns, i.
e., tit) per ton, obtained from the
Huntingdon mill, were not considered
good enough to justify the erection of
a stamp mill,although the value of tlm
tailings showed that tho full value of
the ore run through was $27 per ton.
Mr. Williams is again to he congratulated on having seemed a property of
which practical miners as well as
engineers speak so highly.
��� *   ���
Below will he found tbe oflioial results of the smelting operations of the
Hall Minns Company for the four weeks
ending October 27:
Copper smelting: In Iii days. 19
hours of actual suiBltiug, 2,919 tons of
Silver King ore were treated, containing, (approximately), 64 tous of copper, and 33,930 ounces of silver.
Lead smelting : In 20 days, 22 hours
oi actual smelting, 192 tons of Silver
King ore (containing 2.040 ounces
of silver) and 457 tons of purchased ores were treated, aud 149 tons of
lead^bullion were produced, containing
(approximately), 145 tons of lead, 15,-
770 ounces of silver  and 082 ounoes  of
gold.
��� *   ���
Nicholas Tregear,\vho is in charge of
the development work on the Giant,
declares that he has discovered the real
main vein well above the old workings, where it dips into the hill, says
tbe Spokesman Review. Mr. Tregear
is positive that the shaft which was
sunkou the property last summer was
started in a slide and that the real
ledge is farther up towards the summit of Red Mountain.
It is an interesting fact, although
one that is almost unknown, thut the
Giant was worked long before either
the War Eagle or the Le Roi was
staked. Colonel Topping, of Trail,
was iu town todav. "When I first saw
the Le Roi immediately after it was
located," snid he, "I found an old
prospect hole containing a rusty spade
on the ground which is now covered
by the Giant. The work on it bad evidently been dune long before either
Honrgeoise or Morris ever saw the
Trail Creek district.
��� *   *
Mr. T. J. McNally, representing
the William-Hamilton Company, of
Peterborough, Out., has come in from
Granite, where the Grauite, Royal
Canadian aud Foorman mines are situated. The 20-stamp mill, which he
has been erecting for the company operating the properties named, is uow
completed i.nd in running order. The
stamps started dropping yesterday
morning.everything working smoothly.
Mr. McNally leaves Nelson today for
tbe Yellowstone mine where he will
take charge of the erection of the Yellowstone stamp mill under the superintendence of Mr. H. E. T. Haultain.
Mr. McNally has been actively engaged
in mill construction for over ten years
in the western mining States, and he
says that he has never seen liner mill
machinery than thut at the Granite
mill, which was manufactured by an
exclusively Cauadiau firm.
�� * *
The greatest curse to the Pioviuco of
British Colnmbia today is that clause
Of the Mining Act which permits indirectly the re-staking of claims, instead
of OQmpelling the original locators to
either perform the necessary assessment work or else relinquish the
claims absolutely. There is no doubt
that Kreat consideration should bo extended to the pioneer prospectors in
these and other camps in British Columbia, because of the hardships and
difficulties met with in carrying on exploration. But at tliv same time, these
men would be immensely bettor off if
they were compelled to perform actual work on their prospects, which
would enable capitalists to determine
their value. Instead of this, the average prospector performs as little work
as possible, and asks a man an exorbitant prioo for tliocluimshe has staked, invariably insisting ou u cash payment before an investor has an opportunity to determine by development
work whether the prospect possesses
any value whatever.
An incident which has occurred
lately in the Windermere division of
East Kootenay should carry with it a
lesson which should receive very serious consideration. In the Spring of
181)1) a promoting syndicate took u bond
on the Red Line mineral claim on
Boulder Creek, a triuhtarv to Horse
Thief Croek, for $50,000. A veiy limited amount nf work was done on the
claim, and U wus during the summer
re-bonded by this syndicate to ox-Governor Mackintosh, tho representative of
Loudon capital, for $1,000,0(11), with
$5,000 cash forfeit. The cash payment
was mule, nnd subsequently nn engi-
U3er wus sent to report on the property.    As    a  result    of
the bond held by Mr. Mackintosh was
abandoned and 1 am reliably informed suit was commenced against the
promoting syndicate for rhe return of
the cash payment, together with $10,-
000 in damages.
Such transactions as there are sufficient to give any mining district a
very serious set-back, and there is no
doubt at all but that, many of tbe dis
tricts in British Columbia todav owe
their lack of prosperity to the faot that
capitalists have absolutely no confidence
in ihe representations made by promoters.���Engineering and Mining

BUT LITTLE NEWS
FROM SOUTH AFRICA
iConlinncil From Klrsl Page.)
During the course of the banquet,
Lord Wolieley announced that orders
had beeu given to mobilize another
division for South Africa, and that the
Government was quite prepared to
mobilize a second army corps.
NONSENSE FROM CARNEGIE.
New York, Nov. I).���Andrew Carnegie and Mrs Carnegie were passengers
ou tbe White Star steamer Oceanio
which arrived today from Liverpool.
Mr. Carnegie appears in good health.
He said to a reporter that the reports
that he intended to become a subject
of Great Britain were without foundation, for, he said: "Whore a man's
treasure is, there his heart is also."
Speaking of Ihe present war between
Great Britain and the Boers, Mr. Carnegie said: 'The war against the
Boers is most infamous and unjust,
and it is brought abont by England's
lust for domains, and is on a par with
our attack ou the poor.JTilipinos. These
two attacks are a disgrace to both
branches of our race. The paople in
tbe Transvaal aud Orange Free State,
have a right to iule themselves. One
war is an attack on an existing and
the other on au embryonic Republic.
It is worse for us to attack the Filipinos than for England to attack the
Boeis for we fall from a greater height
as we believed in government by ;on-
sent of the governed.
"The best men in England have spoken against the war in the Transvaal,
and everywhere it is deplored except
by those whose interests are served by
it. Tney are a small clique of Jingoes,
beaded by a statesman, I am sorry to
say, who sees in the war a chance to
fortify his position. "
Mr. Carnegie entertained decidedly
optimistic views of tho business out
look and tho prosperity of the ooun-
try. He said: "I oan only look at
the- business outlook from a broad,
which is sometimes a good, point of
view. But I believe nothing oan stop
11)00 from being a year of great prosperity, always provided, that in view
of the present existing state of the
world and the danger oi war begetting war, the United States keeps out
of the-struggle. Now that this country has foreign possessions there is
more danger than ever.""
a polo ta be used as a taiget. Between
the two ends of the mile were poles so
that tha board could note the adherence
to the course or any deviation from it.
The course was by compass due north
and sooth, the starting point being
the south end
When all was ready the Holland sank
to the depth of 10 feet, while going
at full speed, which was attained almost immediately. This left the tipB
of the flag poles on her deck exposed.
But for these it would have been im-
possble to have traced the boat.ns while
submerged she mude no disturbance
upon the surface.
She travelled at the rate ot eight
knots an hour, making the distance
from start to turning point in nine
and one-half   minutes.
Arriving at the end of the mile she
shot to the surface, her turret coming
into view. Ten seconds later she had
again J disappeared. Within the ten
seconds she corrected ber courso, hav
ing deviated only 10 feet from the true
conrse and tired a regulation Whitehead torpedo, weighing 14 pounds,
which went spinning off toward the
target 800 yards away. Meanwhile as
the deadly missile whirled through on
its course the Holland swung about
and started back, dhe turned iu a radius of 75 feet or about one-and-one-half
times her owii^length. She wss flying
back to the starting point, before tho
missile had run its course. The return
trip was made in about the sume time
as the outward run and was equally
successful.
Commander Emory aud Captain
Lowe tben left the Holland and Commander Capps and Lieutenant Henderson entered the boat and another trip
was taken. 'J he results were tho same
except that instead of rising to the
surfuce the Holland fired it while submerged. Almost before the torpedo
reached the surface the Holland had
turned partially about and by the
time tho missile was well on its journey the Holland was on its way   back.
The missile was well thrown and
came so close to the boat used as a target it was evident no vessel gotlld have
escaped if in the path of the torpedo.
The boat shot to the surface between
the flags. At no time was there auy
roar.
The Holland then ran a quarter of a
mile on the surface as a speed test.
The rate attained was eight knots, but
it was claimed she would have passed
this speed had the whole mile been
run. The object of the short test,
however, was to seo how quickly she
got under way. The Holland then
headed for the New Suffolk, where she
was tied up She will remain at that
place uutil next week when she will he
taken to Washington. The trials were
had today with a fair sea running,
though this, of course, did not affect
the Holland while under water.

The probabilities are in favor of Taylor. Complete returns for counties
only partially reported may make ma
terial change in figures.

prices ranging from 00 to (iOJsj and a snle
of 50,000 ounces at (it). The regular

SUBMARINE BOAT.
The Holland Has Successfully Passed
All Tests.
New York, Nov. 9.���The submarine
torpedo boat Holland wus successfully
tested iu Peconic Bav.L. I., yesterday,
At the closo of tho test tho mem
hers of the board of inspection, Rear
Admiial Rodgers, Commanders William H. Emory nnd Charles II. Roi
licker and Naval Constructor Washington V. Capps, shook hands with
John P. Holland, tho iuveulor, and
congratulated him on his success. He
had waited 25 years for victory, Tears
streamed down his cheeks when the
naval officers greeted him. The Hoi
land ran out to the course and then
Oaptain Lowe and Commander Emory
descended into tbe light round turret
qn the top of tho Holland. Tho enp
was closed und the Holland prepared to
uittko the liist trip along   tho measured
mile.	
The beginning   of   tbe   course   was
marked by two red and white pnlos)set

A UNIQUE RECORD.
Sam Ad'rer, who crossed Thompson
River on his way down from Cariboo
10 years ago this fall, having gone up
via Lillooet and the Fraser, spent a
night in town this week. Mr. Adler
has, within the past two years, visited
Atlin, Dawson, and the Northwest
generally. He has done probably what
no other man alive ever did. Forty
vears ago he rooked out oi Cariboo the
gold to uake a wedding ring for the
lady he aftfrwurds married. Twenty
ye rs later, in Granite Creek, he rocked out the gold that was made into his
daughter's wedding ring. This season,
at Atlin, ho again set to work wit!: a
rocker und rocked ont enough gold lo
niuko .i wedding ring fur bin granddaughter and presented it to her at
her recent marriage, Can anyone
equal this record ?���Ashoroft Journal.
