London, April 15.-1:15 p. in.���Lord
Roberts has telegraphed the following
message to the War Office:
"Bloemfontein, April 25.���Dewetsdorp was oocupied by General Cherm-
aide.witbont opposition, at II :80 o'clock
this morning."
London, April 25.-4:47 p. ra.���The
War Office him received tbe following
despatch from Lord Roberts:
"Bloomfontein, April US.���General
Pule-Oarew'a division readied Roode-
kop yesterday without casualties lis
advanoe was ooverod by oavalry and
horse artillery, whioh drove back the
enemy with heavy loss, their dead being left on tbe ground. The monnted
troops baltod for the night nt t Irool
footein and at 7:30 'bin morning were
crossing the Modder River at Vals-
bank, in accordance with my instructions to General French to endeavor
to plaoe himself astride the enemy's
line of retreat. French's arrival near
the Moddei evidently, however, alarmed the Boors, for they evaouatei) their
strong position near Dewetsdorp during the night aud it was oconphd by
General Ohermside's division tbis
morning.
"The monnted infantry under General Ian Hamilton drove the enemy off
the kopjes in the neighborhood of the
waterworks without casualties on our
side.
"The Highland Brigade marched 24
miles yesterday to support General
Hamiltou and halted for the night at
Klip Kraal, four miles short of Sam-
mas Post. Geueral Brabant nnd Oeneral Hart are still a few miles short of
Wepener aud the numbers of the enemy appear to have somewhat increased
during tbe last few days. But it ia
not likely there will be mncb trouble
in the neighborhood of Wepeuer, onoe
Dewetsdorp is occupied by onr troops.
"I inspected the Oity Imperial Vol-
unteei battalion on their arrival at
Biomfontein yesterday. They ars in
line form and look very workmanlike.
I also inspected the First Company of
Imperial Yeomanry, whioh arrivad
here. Tbe men turn out smart and
their horses are in admirable condition."
advanoe upon Pretoria will be takm
up without any roeoneentration at
Bloemfontein. With more than half

rotard the accomplishment of Lord
Huberts' main objejctivo.
The arrival of Mafeking dispatches
has renewed interest and uuxiety in
regard to tho fate of its defenders.
Lady Sarah Wilson'B account of the
slaughter of 88 natives, who went out
from Mafeking last Friday to look for
some cattle which had been looted by
the Boom, aud who, while they wore
sleeping, were surrounded by the
BurgherB ami shot without quarter,
apparently harshly misrepresented the
action of tho Boers. A dispatch reoeived from Mafeking saya the natives
in question were unauthorized raiders,
tod that instead of being ruthlessly
slaughtered by the Boers while asleep,
they heat baok the Bnrgbers, who
were obliged to get reinforcements of
Maxims and Nordenfeldte. The dia-
patch adds : "There waa no question
of surreuder. Tho leader of the natives
rallied his men to the last and the
fight progressed from the rising to the
sinking of the ran, Until their ammunition was finished the nativos
fought, and then the Boera lulled all
but ono, who, biding in tbe trees, escaped." Tho correspondent concludes:
"Mafeking may be forgiven if it begins to prefer some attempt at relief
rather than empty congratulations for
its gallant stand. Though thore is only
sufficient to keep body and wm] together it will never dieam of surrender, but it is very woary of it all."

London,   April   25.���The  indooisivo
aotion  and  slow progress of  Generals
Hart and Brabant are relatively unimportant when comparod with the progress of General French.   It is now evident  thnt   Lord   Roberts  wishes   not
only  to doleat   the   Boers but to pen
them in as  at   Paardeberg.    For   this
end 4,1)00 British troops are concentrating iu the southeastern part ol Hie Orange Froe State and  operating according   to carefully   devised   plans so the
delay may be as much due lo  strategy
as to neoessity.    The   sno:oess of  this
important  movement   almost entirely
depends on Genernl French.   If lie can
sweep down from   the  north with the
rapidity   of   execution   which be displayed   at  Kimberley and   Paardeberg
be will   effeot the   same swift, sudden
transformation    which    followed   the
oavalry   evolutions  two   months  ago.
According  to   last  accounts   he   was
pushing  on   successfully.   Every  day
the Boers romain at Wepener improves
General Frenoh's ohance to   put a gir-
die round the 25,000  Boers  estimated
to  be io the  southeastern pait of  the
Grange  Free State, and   Lord Roberts
has evidently taken   the  chance.    The
British oritics differ regarding the result, some declaring   it   ia   imprasible
for   the   Boers to escape from the net.
On Tuesday night the quarterlv
meeting of the official board of the
Mebodist Church was held . All the
reports were deoidedly favorable and
tbe different fnnds showed substantial
increases over last year. The membership has iidviinccii to 127. The Snnrl����
Hohool 10^.1 was Highly favorable,
showing a total enrollment of 1412.
During the year the Ladies' Aid raised
|S20.
The second meeting of the Checker
Olub took place last evening, when
the aid-* were. J. Tuttle. J. Hardie,
.1. H.Wallace, D. Hardie and W. Lillie
vs. J. bmytbe, W. Martiu, J. Weir, J.
Watson and W. Irving. At the end of
the series the matoh waa n tie, being
nine wiiiB, three draws, three lost. An
extra gjme was played to deoide and
Mr. Tuttle's side won, the soore being
14 wins, three draws and 111 lost against
Mr. Smythe's score of 18 wins, three
draws and 14 lost.
The losses on ihe Burns blook and in-
tenor by the fire of Tuesdny bave not
yet been appraised. Insurance was
carried hy tbe following: Phoenix, of
London, A. R. Sherwood, agent, $10,-
000 on building and Borna' machinery ; Norwich Union, H. R. Cameron,
agent, $10,000 on bnilding, and the
following companiea represented by
Ward Bros., carried respectively $4,-
000. ��2,000, $2,000 and $2,000 on the
buildiug, Alliance, Caledonian, Scottish Union nnd National and Hartford,
of Hartfoid. This makes $25,000 on
the building and $5,000on the machinery. Ward Bros, had $0,000 on The
Tribune's plant aud Gamble & O'Reilly had $2,000 on the fixtures of the Imperial Bank. It is estimated tbat the
loas ou the building will be $7,000. K
the floors have to be replaced the loas
will be swelled to $15,000. The delay
in moving into the botcher shop will
not be ns great aa waa expected as the
new quarters will be taken possession
of in a few days. Tbey will also probably start operations with the cold
storage plant shortly.

A petition reoeived by tbe Governor-
General from British citizens in Yukon Territory, asking for repreaenta-
tion in Parliament, waa presented to
the Houbo today by the Premier. It
aets forth that the population last autumn waa 22,000 and nearly all of
them were over 21 yoarg of age. Tbe
revenue of the territory was over two
million dollars or one twenty-fifth of
the groas revenue of the Dominion. It
says tbat representation is essential to
prevent mistakes and improvident legislation, and, as the mining industry
is a permanent one, the population wil
inorease. According to tbe basis on
wbioh representation was fliat given to
Manitoba, North West Territories aud
Britiah Columbia, Yukon would be
entitled to from two to twelve members, but they would be satisfied with
two members for the present. They
esk that the right to elect membors
may be given during tho present session of Parliament.
In tho House today, in reply to Mr.
Kanlbaok, bir Wilfrid Lanrier said

ctB from the United States. It was a
matter is whioh Canada oould not interfere.
In answer to Mr. Ellie, Dr. Borden
said that tbere were 714 captains and
1,489 lieutenants in tho militia. Of
these 87 bad resigned tbeir oommis.
sion and enlisted aa privates to go to
South Afnca.
The oaao of tho Queen ve. Connolly and John Connora, was 8ettled
today, tbe Government suing for an
amount for binder twine, the ontpnt
of the Kingston penitentiary. The Bet
tlemeot was tbat the Government will
receive tbe amount shown outstanding
by their hooka and KiogBton. Thia
amounts to $8,820.
Mr. Fitzpatriok has given nrtioe of
a bill to aeenre uniform conditions of
polioiea of fire insuranoe.
Mr. Ratz followed and Mr. Craig
moved an adjournment of the debate,
after which tbe House adjourned.

wbo waa woundod at Karrefontein, is

Boera have everywhere retired at the
flr8t pressure of tbe British advance
and the hope that General Rundle
would be able to induce them to remain at Dewtsdorp until they hnd
been foroed to fight or surrender bas
been diaaprointed.
No  attempt waa made to pursue the
commandoes   retiring  from  Wepeuer.
Everything   now   depeuda    upon   tbe
progreaa  of  General French's oavalry
brigade, but they  are entering a very
difficult, billy and praolically unnkown
country. Tho oavalry have already had
a   long   maroh   over   heavy and sandy
roada, and nothing iB known regarding
the  oonditiou of  the   horaea.    In any
case it is now a raoe between the Federals and the forces of General Fionch
and General Hamilton.   The slowness
of the recent movementa of the British
infantry aud previous experience of the
ability of   tbe  Boera to  move rapidly
witb guna and baggago over their own
countiy,lead to a belief that Lord Roberta' enveloping  operations will  have
to be repeated  further north.   At  the
moat  he   will   perhaps   oapture some
Boer   guns  and   baggage   and   harass
the retreating Burgbers.    Considerable
results have been attained i.i the relief
of Wepener and in  tho clearing of  the
aoutheastern   corner of  the Free State
of   Boers, but tho  Hoers' army, whatever its strength, has still   to be dealt
witb.    Besides  the  cannaltiea  among
the  men.   the   Boer   bombardment of
Colonel Dalgety's    position   wrought
great   havoc   among   tbe   eattlo   and
horses.   The garrison oould   have held
out fnr another fortnight, but it ie  in
no condition to render much assistance
in pursuing the  Boers.   Thore is little
news from other quarters.   The inhabitants of   Mafeking   are on a daily ration   of  two   pints of   eonp   aud two
quarta of skilly.''
Warrenton, Wednesday Night, April

THK MUNICIPAL CONFLICT.
The Mayor defies the Oonnoil That
ii his simple, and ho fur very ellica-
oious, method of HettliiiK difference!
of opinion that may arise as tu the
power or authority of eaoh. If Iho
Mayor is right in his contention, nothing can bu clearer thun tbat tbe Council, in respect to muoh thu greater part
of its nnppoHtid funotinns, is outiiuly
superfluous. As Aid. Irvino put it, "if
the Council has no power to direot the
method of doing tbe City's work, ho
oould not see that there wus any use
for a Committee of Pnblio WoikB."
And if no uso for thn Committees,
tbere con be very little for the Council
that appoints tbem. Tlio Mayor does
uot say in words tbat tbe Council has
no authority to direot public
works, but be maintains that his authority is snpurior to that of the Council's, and that in ooucxriueuce he may
countermand any direotiou the Counoil
may give. Thia Ib merely a round-
. .�����1������ ,hat he ia the entire oorporate authority, and that nm
will is the law that must govern in
tbe conduct uf our civic affairs.
It ia possible the Mayur ia sincere in
hii belief. The Miner baa long been
persuaded that he is a muoh moro
ignorant persou than has been snppos-
ed. The wording of the statute may
be careless, or even stupid, in construction ; bnt no man who oan claim
to be in the least familiar with tbe
spirit uf municipal legislation and of
our municipal system iu Canada will
for a moment believe that any Canadian Legislature ever intendod tbnt the
Mayor should be superior to the Counoil and should bo clothed with authority to defy it. The statute Bays that it
ahall be the duly nf the Mayor to
"direot the method of mauagment of
the corporation business and affairs.''
Bead in tbo light of the whole scope
aud purpose of our municipal institutions, it ia impossible to believe that
tbia gives or wbb intended to give authority to the Mayor to nsurp tho
(nnotions of the Committees of the
Counoil, to countermand their directions, and to render them powerlesH in
the simplest mutters of municipal administration. To maintain thiB would
simply be to bold tbat there is no
effeotive municipal authority ezcept
the Mayor's own, nud that our Aldermen are mere figureheads. This is not
a reasonable construction to put upon
the statute, and uo intelligent persou
will give it that oonstruotion.
Nelson is fortunate in having a body
of Aldermen of good intelligence, zealous in tbe pi blio interest, nnd who
are oapablo of much useful service.
Tbey are anxious by their works to
show tbat they are deserving of the
oonfldence reposed in them by the
electors. ' But if their bands are tied
and their mouths gagged by the Mayor's interpretation of the law, they
may aa well resign and leave this new
fashioned Czar alone with his power.
Dr. Hall very properly Bays that if be
has no power as a member of the Committee of Public Works.he must be held
to no responsibility. Aid. Wilson has
had the breath knocked ont. of him by
the deoree ol thin autocrat, that no one
bnt chairmen of Committees bus a
right to discuss the business <if those
Committees. Ald.MoKillnp cannot understand tbat the general supervision
or direction of tho managomont of cor-
ooration affairs, vested in the Mayor,
deprives the Conncil of all authority
over them. Aid. Iriine is amazed at
the pretension that ihe Mayor has authority to oountermuud a legitimate
order of the Counoil. Pnt they can
have what opinions they please, it
wonld seem; the Mayor defies thorn
all, and tells them lo do their worst.
It is impossible to go on this way.
If tbe Mayor shall persist in his ignorant assumption of authority. It will
be necessary to accept his challenge
and put the matter to  the  test of  the
Courts. 	
One of the ablest of the Liberal
papers of tbo Province ia The Daily
TlmeB, of Greenwood. It thus dia-
ooHsos Mr. Smith Curtis and the Liberal party: "Hon. Smith Cnrtis ban
announced himself aa a oandidate in
tho Rowland Riding, A fow short,
wookH ago he was. amions that the
Liberals Hhould declare for party lines,
but now ho states thut tbey are stumping tho oonntry ub a party, and ha is
in the field simply aa a supporter of
the Martin Government. Mr. Ourtia'H
Statement Iuih at least tbo virtue of
being definite. In tho absence of a
straight Liberal candidate Liberals are
not bound to snppiirt Mr. Curtis. Thev
can remain loyal to the Liberal party
aud still voto against tho Mnrtin
aggregation,    Since Mr. Curtis  by his
netion has showed hie determination
not to bo bound by the decision of the
Liberal convention to be held in
Grand Fores on May Hnd, Liberal associations liuvo no right to attempt to
discipline memberB into voting for
Mr. CurtiR. Mr. Curtis hns oxpresied
his independence of the Liberal party.
Liberals ought to havo the right to be
equally independent. "
Mr. Mnrtin is   hard pressed.    He   if.
discovering, as ho novor did before,
the forco ol the old adage, Needs muHt
when the devil driveB. He dares not
forsake Vancouver, for that would be
too grent a risk, and unless he makes
tlio running for Mr. Yntes in Victoria
there is no hope of that gentleman's
olectlon. By ruuning in Victoria ho
diminishes bis own ohunoos in Vancouver, and these are uot considered
any too promising nt, tho best. He is
finding the way of the political transgressor very bard indeed. But in the
matter of sympathy and support, it
would be curious if the countiy should
give in compassion for his trials what
it refuses to his leputatiou as lirBt
Minister of the Provinoe.
Wo do not know whether the Mayor
of Knssliuid, Mr. Goodeve, knows anything about matters tbnt transpire in
that city, but some of the smart newspapers that caught ua up on tbe question will observe that he attributes a
good deal of the oredit for the settlement of the local labor troubles to Mr.
Mackintosh. He says: "When the
orisis oamo in Rossland, Governor
Mackintosh wrote to The Miuer urging
"--*   ���'">    miuora    and   mine owners
should   come   together, and   declaring
that the  latter should   not stand with
their bucks against   their money bags
A settlement was effeoted on the basis
of  the   lines  be recemmended, nnd is
proving satiHfactory."
We believe tho ratepayers of Nelson
will much prefer to entrust the management of corporation affairs to six
Aldermen like Dr. Arthur, Dr. Hall,
Mr. MoKillop, Mr. Irvine, Mr. Wilson, and Mr. Morrison, rather than to
one Mayor like Mr. Houston. We be
lieve, moreover, that it was fully in
tended to give expression to tbis preference when those six Aldermen were
eleoted last January.
There are twelve paragraphs in Mr.
I'Vinie's address to the electors of
Southeast Kooteuay, bnt tbe first line
of the first one is platform enough for
any honest oandidate to stand upon,
aud ought 11 be enough to insure bis
election. It reads thas: "I am opposed to the present Government."

note in(juimtiou was a one dollar silver
certlfloato which bad been railed to ten
ilolliiri hy having the (Inure "10" pelted oleveily over the "l" that appeared
in viirimis pmtl of tha note. Wher-
cvnr il wns not possible to paste liunriH
over theonei In tbe note tbey bad been
loratolied out. it see nm tbe note, which
linn (iiuisnd all the tronhle, hns rather n
curium" history. About six months
nan It wus bronght to Nelson by a
mini iiiiineil ('ii run, who   hud gotten
it in Bnokane, where it bed been poller] an lonie friend of his. Some tune
in January Cameron gave it tn Obarlen
Devoir, who al Ihe time worked in the
tingle bather shop on linker Street.
Far anile a while the note was in
tbnt Hliop, where it wns kept ns a onri-
oalt* nml iliown to many iinniile who
were In tlm habit of froqnentinR the
Hlinn. Sutherland wns it pnlrnn of the

him Hie inised note. After some talk
(Jntliarlniid ledored the note from De-
voir uud went nwiiy will) it. Those
facts ware elicited from Ibe testimony
ot Devoir, who was one of Ihe witnesses in the ones. H< said from that time,
which wus ulioiit three months uuti, he
bud nut "inee sein the note. Upon
bniiiK shewn the note alleged to have

of  Alien  Labor.
To the Kditor of tile Nelson Miuer,
Nelson, H. 0. :
Dear Hir���Permit me in your vnlm
hie coluiuiiH to give your iiunieroiix
readers an idea ot this camp, iiIouk
with tbe work now nnder construction
hy the Dominion Government. Thin
work ia superintended by a Mr. Gonr-
ley, u rancher from the Frnsnr Hiver
Valley. This Ih considered by many
here an injustice or An much uh to Hay
that brains bave to be brought hern to
put down brush, wire and a few rucks
(It is to be rouieiubercd when Hewitt
comes before tbo electors again,]
Much should be snid in fiivot of our
timekeeper, J. Methot, who bus been
clever enough to hold two positions,
one us checker lor the 0. 1J. K. Com-
pauv at Nakus]i,iind who him been able
to come to the woik once a week and
stop over night. Hut we noticed on
Saturday that he packed hn. hlaukcln
with him and tho supposition is that
he intends to stop ou tbo work until
finished, which w.i suppose will not lie
for a week yet.
For the benefit of yonr resders, ami
partonlnrly of tbe workiugmeii. I may
state thnt aliens are believed to be
employed on those works, coutrury to
Aot of Parliament, ii practice which
our present member, Mr. liostook, denounced wben stumping these districts
in 1896. Wo not only have them employed ou Dominion Government
work, but the shovels, picks, axes,
grinstonos ana even the frames, were
imported from across the lines. This
is as much as to say that there is a
scarcity of timber in British Colum
liiu.und not a mechanic capable enough
to make a frame I'm a grindstone, to
say nothing of tbo other tools.
Tbe writer dotios auy person to dis
pute a word of tbo above, and askH all
workingmen and moohnuios to remember the facts whon going to the polli,
either sooner or later.
