Lonilon, April !).���Tlio War Oilloo
lniH posted n dispatch from Lord Robert!, reading aa follows!
"Bloemfontein, April 2.���(10:110
p. 111.).���In continuation of my telegram at Maroh 111. There lias been
considerable delay in getting aooorate
returns of the disunities, us the action took place twenty-two miles from
here, hence the telegraph cablo has
been interrupted several times. Cloudy
weather has niterferred with Blgnall-
ing and although thore has beeu no
engagement since, the foroe conl 11111
ully iu touch with the enemy.
"There were many acts of conspicuous gallantry displayed during the
dny. A battery remained in notion
uuder a cross lire at 125 ynrds. For
some hours the oflloors were sorvng the
guns as tbe casnaltios reduced tho de-
taohniouts. Several gallant attempts
were made to bring iu two guns, the
tennis of which bad been killed, but at
eaeh attempt, the horses were shot
down. The Essex, Munstor, Shropshire, North Cumberland Mounted In-
fiut'y and Roberts' Horse covered the
retirement of tbo guns from thnt position to the crossing of the diift found
by the oavalry, two miles fnither
south, und withstood the determined
nttnek uf the enemy who in somo ciibcs
advanced within n hundred yards.
"U" Battery of thu Royal Horse Artillery, was suddenly anrroundnd in the
drift,aud the oflieers and men weie all
made prisoners without a shot boing
tired. But Mnjor Taylor nud a ser-
geaut-major snuceeded in escaping iu
the confusion. Five guns wero ^enp.
turod at the same time. Further details will be sent tomorrow."
Lord Roberts' dispatoh seems to
fiually dispose of the earlier icport ot
the recovery ot the guns, aud thn fact
thnt thu Boers remain in oconpntiou of
the waterworks is tukeu as an indication that thoy intend tn make a stund
snflloiently long to cover thn withdrawal of the guns and wagons, to a
plaoeof Bafsty. Tho absence of dofl-
nite information regarding the movements of General Fienoh's cavalry
makes it difUonlt to estimate their
chances of success.
A dispatch Irom Musem, Bastoland,
dated Monday, April 2, snys: "The
Karl of Rossdiu, who is acting as war
correspondent for The Daily Mail in
South Africa, aud who left theie April
1 on bis way to Tabauohn, has probably fallen into tho hands of tbe
lioers."
niaiidniit John H. Blake was present
with the Irish brigade and othor foreigners.
Tho light was marked by many acts
of individual courage. Tho llrBt muu
to warn the British of the umbiiHh
wns a sergunnt of the Army Service
Corps, wbo shot u Boer dead witb his
revolvor. A Household Cavalryman
who was summoned to surrender threw
his rifle in his nnptor'B fuoe, knooking
him ovor and eBoaped. The Boers undoubtedly shot some of the prisoners
and also hilled some of their own men,
Who advanced to demand tlio British
surrender.
LONDON
Bushman's Kop, April 2.���Lator,
according to the testimony of oyo witnesses the Boor shot some of the prisoners ; but thn confnsiou was so great,
tho lire pronoeding from all directions
and tho Boers firing upon the oonvoy,
in which their own men wore killed,
that it ia possible to Bay exactly what
happened. Explosive bulletB have been
found in the bnuolinrs of somo of the
Boers who were captured.
Ihe enemy pursued the British for
miles, killing, wounding nud taking
prisoners one squadron of the Sixth
Umgoous, which when first in tbe
action were 140 strong hut mustered nt
the en.l only ten mounted men. The
Boors seemed to be in grent strength
throughout tho district and are signalling on all sides. A large body is
reported moving southwest of Bloemfontein in the direction of themilwny.
I lupin .de machinery iB available to replace that whioh tho Boeis destroyed
at the waterworks. The British
troops are iu urgent need of remounts.
Bushman Kop, Monday, April 2.���
The Boers are still oooupying tbe waterworks which tho British shelled yea-
toiday ufttrnoon, the  Boors   replying.
Prctorin, Saturday, March 81.���Thero
Iibh been heavy fighting between
Hramlfoit aud Bloemfontein. Tbe
Wakkerstroom and Eiumolo Commandos ttoked 7,000 British and drove
them back with heavy lots. According to the reports of tho wounded who
hnvo arrived hore, fighting oconrrud
nil along the line. The Federal troops
bud positions on the side and top of the
mountain while the British positions
wore on the opposite side. The British
charged repeatedly but were repulsed.
The latest reports say that the Federals
were holding their own, but the final
result of the fighting is not known
bere. The Federal loss was nine killed
nnd wounded. Reports from Brand-
tort received later stale tbat 2,000 Fed-
er.ils attacked 11,000 British success-
fiiliy. Imt thnt 13,000 British reinforcements arrived and tbo Federals were
compelled to retire. Tho Federal loss,
aocording to theso reports waa   slight.

Bushman's Kop, Monday, April 2.
Hearing tbat the waterworks were deserted, the correspondent of tho Reu-
tei's Telegraph Agency rode forward
today. Arriving at the crest of a hill,
a volley wbb Bred at him aud n moment later a man appeared at the top
of the crest. Galling on him to stop
���iring, and saying he was unarmed,
sui desiring to talk with him, the
correspondent discovered thnt this man
wis nn American who declared that
be aooompnnied the Boers only as a
"iglit seer. Ho said that uever during
'us whole life had he witnessed snoh
''munificent plnok as that shown by
Iho British Saturday, nud he asuerted
���bat not only himself, but the whole
liner army were profoundly touched
with admiration at their gallant behavior.
It appenrs tbat the Boers never
doubted thoir ability to enpture the
whole British foroo and werj dnm-
loDinled nt tbe coorngo displayed nnd
the masterly way in' which the force
was able to escape from the death

foice wns detached from Kroonstant,

Colonel Broadwood's retreating foroe.
Ihe burghers engaged consisted of

London, April 3.���The War Office
informs the Associated Press that it
bas no information as to who commanded the Boers in tbe affair leading
to the capture ol tbe British gouB, bnt
it "laces uo reliance whatever in tbe
supposition tbat a United States at-
taohe or auy one connected with the
United States Government took part
in it.
London, April 3.���Tbe dispatoh
from Lorenzo Marquez dated yeater-
iiay, anncunoiug tbe arrival there of
Capt. Haldaue, of the Gordon High
landers, and Lieutenant LeiiioHurii r.of
thu Dublin FuBiliers,.who made tbeir
escape from Pretoria, iB followed todny by further details of tbeir perilous
adventures after getting over the railings nnd reaching the street. "Tbe
moou was full," continues the narrative, "and our untimely nppoarnnco
nttrncted the attention of tbe police,
hut we managed to olear the town aud
to strike tbe Dulagoa Bay Railroad. We
followed the line, hiding hy day in
ditches. Many narrow escapee we
hnd from the Boer patrols. In one
instance we wero compelled tu take to
the river and swim some distance after having alarmed a patrol wbioh
was soarobing for un along the bank.
Wo spent a miserable night in a clump
of bracken. The morning sun brought
life to our chilled bodies,but we fonnd

ou we left tho railway track as being

(BY ASSOCIATED PRESS.)
London, April !!.���Mr. Thomas
Charles Hodderwiok, Liberal Member
for tho Northern Burgs moved that in
tho opinion of tho House it was desir-
able in the interest of tho Empire thnt
the Colonies rhould bo admitted to
some representation in Parliament.
He said this Government wns particularly popular in Canada. Mr. Oharlos
Phillips Troveleyau,Liberal Member for
the Ellun Division, West Riding York,
suggested that the Agonts-Gunornl of
the Colouiea lie allowed it voioa in Parliament but not a vote.
Mr. Chamberlain snid thnt, if tbe
object of the promoters of tho resolution wna to make olonor the union of
the Colonies with tho Mother Country, they oonld huve no more strenuous
supporter than himself. Ho doubted,
however, whether this objeot would
be promoted by nu abstract resolution
upou a questiou of the groatest complexity.
''8ooh a ohnngo," continued tho Colonial Seoretary, "must oomo gradually with tbe full consont of tho Colon-
ios No praise could be too high for
Colonial patriotism. Tho Colonies
did not wait for a call, but voluntarily offered their assistance which wns
gladly aocepted. Great as has boon
tiiis assistance nud great au bits been
the saoritroe, if under any stress we
should Onll upon the Colonies, their
offers would be immensely greater
still. And if uuy demand upon the
Mother Country wero made by the
Colonies, nothing would be surer than
the favorable reply of Parliament.
We are not going tn interfere in tho
domestio affairs of the Colonies. Nor
are they going to interfere in ours. 1
have never advocated, as has been reported, tbo formation of an Imperial
Sovereignty, bnt I have pointed ou*
tbat if there were to be any kind of
official arrangement with the Colonies,
I believe the only form thnt would
meet with the slightest favor would be
nn Imperinl Sovereignty, in which
there would be free trade between the
portions of the Empire and duties ub
against Btrangers. At any rate, the
snggestion most originate with tho Colonies."
London, April 3.���The Seleot Com-
raitieo, of tho House of Lords, on the
copyright bill, met todny and Mr.
Samuel Clemens (Mark Twin) was examined. He oxpressed tho opinion
tbat the oopyright laws of Groat Britain and the United States were so
uearly what they had ought to he that
tbey only needed one compartively
trifling but morally gigantio amendment iu order to beoome perfect. Mr.
Clemens explained that the amendment would be the revival of the forty
two years limit and a return to perpetual oopyright.
London, April 3.���In tbo House of
Lords today Lord Kinninrd nBkod the
Governmont to support tbe United
States in the opposition to displny on
Sunday at tho Exposition iu Paris.
Lord Salisub/y repliod that tho Government wns fully nwnre of tho feeling in the matter but had [no shadow
of authority to deal with the subject.
It was entirely a question for tbo
authorities of tho exposition.
nitier in coiisequonoe of thu present
war, whicli has been shown by all
ehisses of my subjects,has boon a groat
oonsulntion to me during the timu of
suspense nnd anxiety through which
we nro passing. I join in anr heart
prayers that peaoe may soon bo restored nnd thnt the other blossingu of Heaven bo long oontluued to my Empire,
and I wish all prosperity to the country you represent."
The Queen then walked across the
platform, lenning ou the arm of an
Indian attendant, to the Royal yacht
Viotoria and Albert, which, piloted by
the Irene, and escorted by the Royal
yacht Osborne and the cruisers Galatea
mid Austrulin, then steamed out of
the harbor for Kingntou.
Kingston,  Ireland,   April A.���Queen
Viotoria arrived here at 2 o'clook.
Dublin, April 4.���(12 :20 a. m.)���In
spite of the rain that was falling and
tho huge puddles of water under foot,
the ar. ival of Queen Viotoria in tbe
Roynl yaoht Victoria and Albert, off
Kingston, wub the oocasion for mnoh
enthusiasm nlthongh. this did not tnkn
nu orgnnized form, owing to tho fact
that Hor Majesty came several lrours
ahend of sohodnle time. The passage
of the chaiinnel waa smooth and the
Qneon suffered uo discomfort, although she expressed regret at the premature departure from Holyhead, owing to the threatening weather oonditious, should sans - her Irish subjects
disappointment It had been officially
announced that she would reaoh
Kingstown at fi :30 p. m. Tuesdny, instead of 2 p. m. But at the latter
hour, the V ieturia nnd Albert loomed
up through the haze and rain, and
was greeted by the tbnnder of twenty-
one guns from each ship of the British
Channel Sqnadron, Thousands had
poured iuto Kingstown regardless of
tbe peltiug rain, which luckily oensed
about 5 o'clock aud they braved the
cold winds aud mud until midnight.
The culehration wbb confined to an illumination nud to a few fireworks bere
nnd tbere. A shining shamrock stood
out against the blackness of Dn'-liu
Hay nud from the Jaokies olustered
nn the decks of tbe squadron, came
the strains of "God Save the Qn3en,"
whicb were taksn up with a will by
tbo crowd, and when "Soldiers of the
Queen, "floated across the quiet water,
tho spectators on Kingstown pier
joined in with equal fervor. Although
all pulii ical conditions are represented
iu KingBtown tbere waB no attempt
at a counter demonstration. In fact
the evening's fireworks or singing and
cheering were not marred by any hostile note, and the entry of the Queen
iuto Dublin today (Wednesday) will
probably he a repetition of a similar
friendly celebration.

(SPECIALS TO thu MINER.)
Viotoria, B. C, April II.���Cory
Sponcor Kider, of Cumberland, wus
this afternoon sworn ill ns Finance
Minister, iu Martin's Cabinet. Victoria is unking who iu the name of
Heaven is Cory Spencer Rider. Nobody ever hoard of him before,
Victorin, B, C, April 3.-"Is Martin crazy" "Whnt aro wo coming
lor" "How muoh more of this kind
of tonifoolory is Biitish Columbia going to bo called upon to beat?" Such
were the questions Vicloriuus found
themselves asking when tho announcement wan made this morning that O.
S. Rider, of Cumberland, had been
sworn iu as Finance Minister in Mr
Martin's Cabinet. Tbo first surprise
over and vent being given to tho gen
eral feeling of Indignation aroused nt
Martin's unmitigated gall in foisting
into the importnnt post of finance
Minister n country nincompoop from
no obsoure village, the genernl omiseu
sus of opinion was that the limit has
been reached. Such strong protests
will go to Ottawa from Libeials all
iver tho Proviuco that Lnurier will be
forced to act and cut oil' nt oncn tbe
offlcinl hends of Lieut. -Governor Mc
limes aud Premier Martin and ring the
curtain down on n t'aice which makes
British Columbin stink in thu nostrils
of all who bear her   numo   mentioned.
But of O. S. Rider���he wns born al
Kingston,Ontnrio.iu !K(I5,where he engaged in funning. He cainii here iu
iHSil and workud as clerk in tlio whole
lale grocery store of Simon, Locieser
& Co., aud a few yours ago ho wont
to the little country village of Cumberland, north of Nuuaiiuo, and engaged in business on his own hunk. Tht
place was booh closed np hy his creditors and ho has Inttorly been employed
as clork in u small general store.
There Mr. Mnrtin found him���found
this jewel who is now to shine resplendent iu the chair at tho Finance
Minister's office. Mr. Ridor came down
from the coal city ou the noon train iu
company with Mr. Gordon, of Nanaimo, and almost immediately entered a
back and drove to the Government
buildings. Later in tbe day he drove
to Government House iu oompnuy
with the Premier und Mr. Campbell
Reddie and was sworn in by His
Honor as Minister of Finance and Agriculture.
The Liberals of Sonth Nanaimo have
held a caucus and decided that they
do not want party lines. At a meeting a resolution wns pnssed similnr to
the one passed at tho Liberal Association oaucus in Nanaimo city. Ten
delegates were elected to attend the
convention to be hold iu Vancouver
on Thursday and thoy were instructed
to opposo Joseph Martin or any movement with whicli ho was connceted.
The Premier eeomed in the best of
spirits when spoken to this nfteinoou
and did not hesitate to pronounce the
latest addition to his administration
as "a smart fellow." He laughed
heartily, however, as he added:
"Never henrd of him,   I suppose."
It is thought in soino quarters that
bb Martin's latest addition to his Cabinet iB a Liberal this will havo offoct
iu bringing about pnrty lines.
A protest is being entered by H.
Dallas Helmcken, M. P., against the
transfer of the marine hospilnl lo the
authorities of tho Department of Militia and Defence for the purposes of a
barracks for the Provisional Company
raised iu British Columbia, and which
has been ordered into quarters hero.
Ottawa, April B.���Col, Prior brought
up it   motion   to   adjourn tho   case   of
Lient.-Col, White, of Gnelph, who had
boon selected for   a few   mouths   staff
course at Kingston   Military   College.
His   appointment   was   caucelled   and
tho reason stated   hy   General   Hutton
for tuking this course was   that Whito
had been a   poll I ical   partisan.    Prior
mnde a long speech ahout tho   matter,
assuming that the   slatiiient   mnde   by
Hutton with regard to Colonel White's
removal from the staff course was oor-
root, although   H   hud   linen denied hy
Iho   Minister  of Militin.    Afterwards
the gonoral withdrew his letter to Colonel White and stated that the reasons
for his removal were that he   was   not
in active command, was ovei ago, nnd
was physically   inenpnoitntod.    Lieut.-
Colonel   White   wns   burn   iu   October
1K43.    His physical incapacity consisted of the loss   of   pa> i   of   one   of   his
blinds.    His tenure of service   hud   expired although   It had   bom   extended
two yanra by the Ministor   of   Militia.
Hon. Mr. Borden denied that he bud
introduced politics  into   Militin.    He
cited tho   officering of thu   contingent
now in South Africa as a proof of this.
As for the   reason   givon   by   General
Hutton for Colonel While's  dismissal,
there wns not n   word   of truth in   the
statement tbnt it was duo   to   politioal
reasons.    The   list of men seleoted  by
General Hnttou   for   tho   staff   course
hud not   been   submitted   to   him.    It
wns    publiibed   in   his   absence.    Ho
struck   out   tbe   names    of    Colouel
White and Viuoe from   tho list.    Both
theso   mon were too old aud   tho  ataff
lourse was limited to   men   under 35.
i'he lirst intimation ho had of General
Hutton'B letter   was a copy   ns handed
to him by Mr. MoMullen.    Ho iuimed-
uiieiv sent for his  secretary   and  sent
him to Lieut. -Col. Foster, Chief   Staff
Ollioer, asking for the original   letter.
He .wns   refused a sight of the letter,
mil Lieut.-Colonel Foster also   refustid
to come to him,   slating   thnt he oonld
not do so without the General's orders.
He then learned thut the General   bad
.'.iven him uu order not to see tbe Minister of Militia without his knowledge
r to   show tbo   Minister any military
correspondence, aud   that if he or Col-
niel   Ayliner  bad uu   iuteiviow witb
the   Minister  they   must   report what
occurred   to   him.    He  wns   prepared
to   justify    his reasons   lor   removing
White's   name   from   the   lists.     Recently be hns discovered   Hint  Colonel
White had   nttcred   sentiments   which
no militin olllcor ought   to   state.    He
laid thut they hud a disloyal    element
iu Canada in the French   whom   thoy
might some   duy   have   to   light.    No
man ought to bo allowed to remain an
ifficer who would sny  such   a   thing.
Ho resd letters  to  show �� that  Hutton
hnd inaugurated a statu   of   despotism
mil terrorism in the   Militia   Department.

There will be a fumigating station
where tho nursery stock will be admitted in Manitoba and another in
British Ooiumbia. The House nd-

In conclusion Borden said that bo
would not be prevented from doing
justice to his political friends. Mo-
Mullen corroborated what Dr. Borden
had said about the interview with
Foster. The debate was continued by
Tisdale, Foster Davis, McNeil, Suthor

IiiuesMarlin regime, tin' eiitlf affairs
of tbe Province must coma to ti standstill If the lists are a third ol (hat age.
Iu tho Dominion, however, keen a-
pnrty feeling may be, it is not thought
safe to trifle with tbo affairs of the
public; in British Columbia Ihe public
interests are made to bend to the Got-
eruor aud his new Premier. Thut is
the uufortunate difference, as we are
being made to reuliso whether we like
it or uot.     	
KUUM PRICKS.
4*11 Idiv attention is so completely ale
���ofbud in coi.tonipliiting the local political situation, and in endeavoring to
make head or tail of it, tbat we nre
likely to overlook the fact thnt there
ia a Federal Parliament, that it is
now in session, and that there ia a
widely prevailing belief that it ^iJl
be dissolved within thu no;-, fir.ee or
fonr months. The sessicn jfself, is not
creating an inconvenient amount of
interest. Tln-r. wa-. a budget deliver-
auce a few duys ago, but aside fit.m
the fact that a large surplua was disclosed, due to an almost unexampled
commercial prosrerfty flint ie running
its' course ull over1 tbe world,thoro waa
nothing in It to excite either wonder
ot admiration. A few tariff ohaiio"rfa
there were, but not one il* a hundred
oK'tlJe population VI atfected hy them,
'ihe Senate threw out tf��� Redistribution, Pill, bot as th*'j W���H fully eipeot-
���d thn event itself hardly provoked remark. Th', atreani of talk is as cease.-
Ie8i as ever, bnt only the professionals
h����^. it It Is more interesting to die-
toss the probabilities ofj 4��jf��iotion,
and that ib what tho viaija. of spectators appear to bu do,tig. n \g though*
the session mav bo hurried, and a general eleotion Urdogbt oji before Juua is
quite speu).    Tbis ia ou the oards.
Whether in Juno, or even as late apl clearness
September, the elections will he haW
on the old liBts-that is, on lista from
six months lo a year old, and in some
oases even older. Whon Pailiamont
adopted tho Provincial lv��t��,iprnv,irviJ0D,
was made for a rsvtstfin io,rji��se��,. 0f ex
treme antiquity. ,:.nsr w>at) lt \0 n���
regarded aa un.Viqnat��d in riot quite
o|epr. Time, was, wheat three years
were considered a�� tt fjt||) 0jjRn,,e age,
but it ia possiblu tb.at ao protracted a
period would not rmtn meet witb pub-
tit) favor. At Uttuwa, however, as we
bee, a year ia not considered as fatal
to an election. The people of the Dominion will ho qoite witinflori to have
tbeir next Parliament elected en lists
varying from six or eight moutba to a
year old, and thero will be nr> anoasy
suspicion that it floes uot reprrseut tlm
actual sentiment of the country nt
large, neither nights of remorse over
tho thought thnt some have pemaiued
diefrnnnhisHd to whom a later revision
wonld give the right to vote.
If tbo constitutional practice in snch
cases bad beeu oaserveri when the
Lieutenant-Governor of Hiitinh Columbia oalled ou Mr. Martiu to form a
Government, there would hate heen n
dissolution of thn Legislature a month
ago and the ballots of a dew election
counted hy this time. But the tender
and scrupulous Mr. Mnrtin could not
think of such ti thing. Tbo lista wero
aotuslly four months old, end to think
of< disfranchising tbe few score or
Hundreds who.have beoome eligiblo in,
the meantime was a conception of
cruelty so absolutely appalling that
hla heart is still in a violent tiornor
over it. There may be neither injustice nor impropriety in a Do'nitiion
election on   lists   a   yeer  old, but   in J
A Canadian l.ile Insurance Company
became curious a   short   time   ago���or
was it anxious?���and   s.int   out bu in-
ouiry to  financial   authorities   to  get
their opinion as   to tha   ptobabb  ��ate
ol   interest   ou   money   for   the   next
twenty-five years.    It   was   undeistood
thut the rate was to beon securities in
which Life Companies ure allowed to
InvSSt.    Answers   were   obtained fiom
such men as the two SZ-Tlnanos   Miu-
i-tors,Sir Richard Cartwright and Mr.
Foster,   and   Bunk    Mauugers   among
who n were Mr. Oloustou, Mr. Walker,
aud Mr. Wilkie.    There   were   others,
all eminent as financiers.    The   replies
are published   in   The   Kconomist, Toronto.    Three   per   cent,    is the   level
witb moBt of them, but   some   vary to
.l'4   aud   UJM.    Money   is   cheap   now,
iml in tbo opinion of these   men   will
be cheaper.    That is, it   is   cheap  out
iu tbo world, here, iu   tbo   mountains
uf British Columbia, it is   dear.    Why
the difference?   It   costs   nothing,   or
next to nothiug, to   transport   money,
and security is security, whether  here
or elsewhere.    Tbe Rank that   :s   glad
to get five per cent, on  ordinary   com
mercial seourity in Toionto wants nine
in   Nelson;     the    house  owner  who
thinks himself lucky if he can   realise
a net five  or six per  ceut.  In, Toronto
will not be satisfied with   less than fifteen in Nelson, often gets twenty, and
not seldom   thirty.    These   aro   fancy
values,   nnd   fancy   values   iu   ru\#vy
help to   keep   hack   dovoloru,t;y��|,    \u
new places like Kootenay   it   i��.   taken
for granted tiiat any price t)lllt onu  !,���
obtained for  anything  ia   legitimate,
and there at3 uot  a   few   people   who
believe that the higher Ihe   prima  rjU
around the greater tbe  prosperity,,.   Ih
it so cocksure that these views am u',t
mistaken ones?   Thero   is   v.uiy   grave
doubt iu the   minds of -iiAUy   -whether
boom prices ure a  h'juuug,    y0T years
after the Wiuu\p^5   bow* exploded Ihe
place remained, s"tansv����'._m fact,   de-
reroirated,, but ail tb-j time boom prievs
ware ^aintaivewi,    when   prices  went
down, to something like norma) conditions, the   city  rucovored   itself,   and
Its   growth   since    has    neve*    boen
equanVd iu Canada.    This was  not nil
due to normal  prices, bnt  there is no
d'oubt it was largely  atre��*>d by them,
and ha* been, indeed th..- principal factor in. tho, 0KCmt��din,��y   prosperity cf
that   aUou    Every   oh,i'.d can make the
.apwiwation for itself.

Interesting Throughout from Cover to Cover.  British-Boer "War
Pictures.   Yiews of South Africa.   Splendidly
Described by a Noted Author.
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
scenes throughout South Africa by aid of camera, pencil and pen, presenting a pictorial
history of the
British-Boer War and Countries from the Cape to the Front

good hln/.e wus soon in progroso. The
2!l cars were completely destroyed,
b'onr trnnips were stealing a ride nu

bnt escaped without an injury. One of
the train hands, however, wns severely injnred. The train from Spokane wns throo hours lute lust uight
nu account of the uooidont as thu pas-
Bongors and baggage had to be transferred over tho gulch which the trestle
spanned.
Some mnn, with n bolliw place in
bis head where his brains ought to be,
huudod into Tlio Minor ollice on Moodily night a notion hearing the inline of
William Sutherlnnd nud amiounoing
the marriage ol thut gentleman tn u
Mrs. 15. Hudson. Thu truth ot tho
statement contained iii tho notice wns
not <|iiostionod by Tbo Miner and an
uniiniiiicemeut of the ulleged mnrringo
was made. It appears tbat there wns
a wedding at the home of Mrs. Hnd-.
son, but tbat tho contrnctmg parties
wore Mr. Carver Lawrence and Mrs.
H.iiinah Onion. The person who wrote
the notice which was handed into The
Minor office evidently thought he was
perpetrating a prootioal joke. He
was doing more thnn this, however.
He wns demonstrating himself to be a
fool of a vory high calibre ; one of that
olasB ol fools whoao proper plaoe is in
an insiiuo nsylum.
Glimpses of South Africa,
The Minor now has on sale tho
second portfolio of "Glimpses of South
Africa." If anything, it is more ele-
gaut than tho lirst number and not one
book shonld be left nt the beginning
of next week when Portfolio No. !!
will be olferod. Tho Miner will make
a speoial offer, in that it will give for
at) cents and one oonpon ont from a
nopy of this paper, Portfolio No. 1 and
1. The oonpon will be found nt tho
head of tbe editorial column. Cut it
nut of this paper and put it in yonr
pocket so tbat you mny get tbe Portfolio when yon pass The Miuer  office.
Things uro moving ngnin nt tho

tilled for woik there yesterday and
Monday. On Thursday the stnmp mill

mines will he clear enough of water
foi woik tu bo done on the lower levels. When the White tunnel,on whioh
work is uow being done is completed
and connects with the Drnmmond
shaft the Poornian mine will druin
itself to tto fourth level.
Chief Thompson, ol tbo Piro Department, is noxious that tho merchants
in town will use grout caution in milking tiros of viastepapor in thn vicinity
ol their warehouses. Lust night bo
put out several of theso lires which
hnd been left burniug close to the roar
of buildings. Thoy wore evidently
started to consume rnbbish and, without anyono to wutnh their progress,
were a dooided menace to the adjao-
��� iii buildings. Serious lires have been
started by similar ourelessnoss.
Contributions to the India Famine
Pund aro not ooming in as rapidly us
the promoters of tho fuud would desire. Mr.Geo. Kydd, who will receive
contributions at the Bunk of Halifax,
desires to aokowledge the receipt of fu
from Mrs.J. Rodetica Robertson. Also
several answers to the chain letter sys-
tum started by tbe son of Mr. J. J.
I'mnbpell. It is especially asked Hint
all those receiving those letters will
promptly comply with the request iu
lini.e letters. Ten cents is the smnll
i ni asked for aud those who receive the letter aro asked to remember
thnt tl will keep one person in the
famine strioken country, from storva-

II. H. Bowden pleadod guilty yesterday to a charge of stealing $2,300 from
the Hall Mines nud wus sentenced to
Berve two years in the pentitentiary at
New Westminster. Bowden Bhowed
no signs of boing at all pnt out by his
senteum. Clayborn, who wan charged

d to serve two yours. Sanderson,
who was charged with stealing $ln0

A cheok for $12.H5, purporting to be
signet by the Nelson lion Works, waB
cashed yesterday by tho proprietors of
the Lake View Hotel. It was drawn r.n
