REVOLUTIONISTS RECOGNIZED.

United States Government bus ollici-

Loudon, Nov. 21.���o a. in.���The reports of heavy fighting at Ladysmith
last Wednesday have not been continued. Ou the contrary, the most re
liable advices from Estcomt indicate
that thore was nothing more than a
desultory cannonade. Probably the
rumor of a serious engagement grew
out of the fact that the Boers threw a
few harmless shellb late on Tuesday
night, leading to the supposition that
an attack was imminent,
Nothing,however, happened on Wednesday. Beyond tbo faot that the
Boers are daily recoiviug fresh reinforcements, and supplies, there is prao-
tioallv nothing new from tho front,
Tlm invasion of Cape Colony continues
steadily, and rapidly. There are 1,600
Boers at Colesburg, and news has
reached East London that Ladygrey,
near Aliwal North, has been desortod
ny tbe British and is now in tho. Land.-
of the enemy. A Pretoria dispatoh
announces the arrival there among the
British prisoners of Major Haldanc,
Lieutenant Brockie and Lieutenant
Hallway, It also declares that the
British on Sunday made two unsuccessful attempts to oust tho Bustenburg
commando from n position neni
king and that severe fightin
place.
From Delagoa Bay come reports of
the ariival of many Gornirn officers
and artillerymen, who have volunteered to serve with tbo Transvaal   forces.
The Wnr oflice semi-officially reports
that all war news received from South
Afriei has been pu.dished with the
exception of demands for renewal of
stores, war m.lenal nnd the like.     ��
There is an unconfirmed rnmoi that
moie troops have been ordered from
India to the Cape.
Tbo plan of opoiat'ons on both sides
is slowly unfolding itself. General
Joubert is evidently moving south to
prevent,if possible, the junction of thu
British relieving force with the forces
at Estcourt and Ladysmith. While
on the Orange Rivn border, the Boers
arc believed to be concentrated at Don-
kerpoort to oppose General Buller's
advance, It is s'lid that 6,000 Boers
have already laagered at Donkorpoort.
The British movement seems to bo a
threefold advance from Durbau to
Ladysmith, from Oraiiffo River to
Kimberley, und (mm East London by

Capetown is proceeding ill tho mo-it

eight hundred and fiftv railway cars
have been collected for the conveyance of troops northward, and thero is
talk of suspending the suburban traffic so as to accelerate military work.
Tho Daily Chroniclo in its "war
dairy" says this morning: "Hitherto
wn have hesitated to speak of tho quality of the tinned meats supplied to our
troops, much of which has Dad to bo
thrown overboard, but we havo made
inquiries unlikely to be influenced by
mere rumor, and we suppose the suspicion is that some of tbe meat supplied tn the Government for use ou
Britisli transports was meat which had
been rejected hy tho United States
during the hostilities in Cuba, which
is picturesquely know u as "embalmed
beef," aud restamped with the murk of
the current year. Whatever blunder
there may hnve beeu most be laid, not
at the door of tho War Officii, but at
the door of the Admiralty which bus
undertaken to feed tho troops. Not a
single complaint regarding the quality
of the stores has come to hnnd.''
A RUSSO-GERMAN TREATY.
Berlin, Nov. 80.���While tbo Czar
was at Potsdam recently the general
lines of a prospective oommeroial
treaty between Germany and Russia
were reached. The whnlo situation,
including the financial crisis in Russia
which is largely duo to the numberless
industrial enierprises stinted under
the Russian high tariff policy l>��ing
obliged to curtail their output owing
to insufficient coal supply from the
South Russian mines, wns thoroughly
discussed. When the workshops closed for luck of coal, prices rose enormously, and tho Minister of Finance,
M Do Witt, therefore arbitrarily fixed
the orloe of railroad material required
hy the suite railroads at about fifty per
cent below the price demanded. .-)s
many of these enterprises started expressly to supply the Siberian railroad,
tho result was disastrous.
Berliu financial circles regard the
crisis as only temporary, and are inclined to further Russia's financial and
industrial expansion on the ground
that they will thus be subscribing to
their own interests in drawing apart
Russia and France, and in heightening
Russia's powers of purchasing German products.

Manila, Nov. 20. -There has beeu
a revival of insurgent activity south of

scattered the enemy from tho districts
around Imus aud in the direction of
Heroes das Marinas. The Americans
could not pursue the retreating insurgents because their ammunition was

confidonce tho Governor is "ooond to
consider bis request for a dissolution.
A defeat in the House proves nothing.
Ho may suffer that, and still retain
tbe confidence of tbe country.
What the Governor may do under
these or any other circumstances is
quite another matter. No one disputes
his untrammelled porogativo in the
premises. He may grant or refuse dissolution to Mr. Semlin in the event of
defeat, and from his past conduct he
would be a rash prophot who would
venture to predict with certainty what
he would do iu any given case.
THE ABSENT-MINDED BEGGARS.
A writer in The Victoria Province,
who contributes comments on the war
which evince good judgment and a
thorough knowledge of his subject,
said in a recent article : "Of all those
who will suffer by this war no clasp
is so severely triu.l as that of the reservist. Three-fourths of these mon are
in civil employ; most are married and
quits one-half of these will have families. Yet 99 per cent, of these Tommies have answered already to the call
to join their colors and are on their
way to tbe seat of the war, leaving the
wife aud kiddies to the tender mercy
of the world. Tommy is light-hearted to the out-side folk, but he is as
tender to his MiBsis and those kids as
you and I can be; be sure that his
gayety covers a very sorrowful spirit
and that be will long remember the
tear stained faces of those ho left bo-
hind. He will not be one whit the
loss forward because he has so many
feeble ones to depend upon his life, but
he will indeed rejoice when he hears
tbat the good folk at home have made
a purse that will relieve the wants of
those who are nearest and dearest to
him until the day of his return."
This is quoted by The Inland Sentinel with the view of stirring the people of Kamloops into the activo benevolence that gives. Victoria has sot the
example by giving a concert which
uettod a handsome amount ns a con--
tribution to the Mansion House Fund
for the support of the wives and kids of
the Tommies who have gone to the
front. There are signs that Vancouver will soon do likewise, and as it
is never happy unless it oan outdo Victoria wo may expect to heai of an increased contribution. Tbo Royal City
can scarcely do less than fall into line
with tbe others. We see thnt The
Sentinel is trying to awaken Kamloops, and The Miner is only too
happy to take pattern by it nnd to urge
that, in so good a cause, Kelson will
not be behind tho others. Canadians
made themsevles one with the Empire
in sending that contingent; let ns
make tin union .nore perfect still by
sharing in the cure of tho helpless
Whom loyalty and devotion to (jueen
and Country huve robbed of their support. It' a concert is thought not to tie
feasible, The Miner, in absence of
anything better to set the ball rolling,
will receive contributions and forward
thera to the Treasurer of the Mansion
House Fund.
"Tho more Canadian capital that
goes into th.- Republic eump," says
the Spoh.isman-Roview, "the better
for the oamp, the better for Spokane,
the bettor for the mining industry in
the Inland Krnpire." No doubt;
bni it is not better for Canada, and
the best patriotism will say that Canada should be the first object of Canadian capital. If thero were not opportunities for it in our own country,
there soulil be no complaint if it
sought profitable investment outside.
He is a poor sort of a Canadian, however, who does not know that Kootenny
is licher than Republic iu mining resources, and i:i so many times larger
that there is room and to spare for
every dollar of Canadian capital that
can be scraped up.
The Norwegian and Swedish Consul
at Victoria, Mr. W. A. Ward, writes to
The Miner to recall the recent terrible
disaster off tho coast of Norway, by
which several hundred persons engaged in tho fisheries lost their lives. The
Government at once took steps to relieve the distress of the bereaved families, and subscriptions have been solicited all over the United Kingdom.
Mr. Ward desires that The Miner shall
make an appeal for assistance to the
Norwegians in this district, which we
gladly do, The suffering is very gleat,
and oontrihutions will be welcomed.
The Miner will acknowledge any
sums sent in, large or small, and forward them as requested   to Mr. Ward.

AS TO DISSOLUTION.
As The Vancouver Province has taken np tne cudgels against The Colonist
in u dispute over a constitutional point
advanced by the latter a short time
ago, Tho Miner can afford to draw oui
and leave it to theso combatants. Before doing so, however, it will endeavor to make its position in respect to
the matter clear beyond question,
It thinks, in the event of bis ilcfent
in the I.egislutuie, that Mr. Semlin
would be entitled to ask for a dissolution. The Colonist disputes this, and
The Proivnco supports The Miner. After tho last general election tho Governor assumed that Mr. Turner was
defeated at the polls, and insisted on
bis resignation. We do not think the
Governor wiih justified in his course,
but he exeroised his prerogative, got
rid of tho Turner Government, and
called upon Mr. Semlin to form a new-
one. This Mr. Semlin did, and be-
ievlng thnt he could depend on u
steady support from the House as then
constituted ho deolincd to avail himself of his right to a dissolution and
at once undertook the duti���H pertaining
to the Government, He in defeated,
say, early in the second session. Tbat
is the act of the Houso, not of the
people. Assuming that ho had the
eonttdiiuoe of the country throughout
tho (list session, as we are bound to
du, the mere (act that the House has
changed doiiH not prove that Mr. Semlin has lost it. Tho Governor cannot
assume that, for be has nothing on
Which to base a supposition of the
kind. So far as he is permitted to
know,Mr. Semlin still enjoys the public oonlideiico, aud beyond all doubt
Mr. Semlin can claim that ho docs.
With this profession of faith in their
mipport, we believe tho prnotioe will
Uphold him Is iV.*v-.,\v<ling that he shall
bo allowed to appeirl frotn the House
to tbo people. Ah Premier he has
never made such appeal, and unless it
in perfectly clear ho bus lost the public

NELSON DAILY MINER, TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 21,  1899.
THE CITY COUNCIL
DEBENTURE   BYLAWS   TO   EAISE
$15,000 TO BE SUBMITTED.
TI19 Agreement Between tbe 0. P. E, and
tlie Oity to Be Laid Before the
Ratepayers for Approval-
The regular 111 jeting of tlio City Coun-
oil was held last night, the Mpyjr pre.
siding. There were also present, Aid.
Hillyer, MoKillop, Kirkpatriok, and
Beer; Oity Solicitor Gullil.er imd City
Engineer McCulloch.
Tenders were opened for the mukinu
of water oonueotious, The Vanoonvur
Hardware Co., offered to niiikr- the
oiiiino.'iions, the Citv to supply all material mid do the excavations und back,
tilling, for Irlpuoh oonneotion. Straohan
Bros.' tender for like work whs 60
cents cell. It. was decided to accept
the lower tender.
The Finance Committee reported in
favoi Of raising $8,000 for waterworks
purposes and $7,000 for electric light,
same to lio raised by debentures repayable in 80 yeurs at 4% per cent.
The report was adopted as was also
the recommendation of same committee tbat accounts amounting to $6,419
be paid.
The City Ei gineer reported the contract fur hiving watermiiins complete.
He explained that tbe trench made the
roadway vory hard for teams to puss
over.
Aid. Beer asked if Mr. Childs had
any claim for damages for the injury
to the road.
The Clerk read a lottcr from Mr.
Ettei asking for some compensation.
Mr, Qalllher pointed ont that the road
was not built by the City and that
they were not responsible.
Aid. lioer suggested that tlie Mayor
be authorized to settle with Ktter.
Tlie Mayor said he believed $50
would be a fair compensation.
Aid. Beer proposed thnt the claim
be settled on this basis, and tbe proposal was adopted.
The City Engineer reported that the
cost of material for tho addition to the
Fire Hull would be about, $200.
Aid. Kirkpatrick snid thnt under existing circumstances the men had to
sleep in the same apartment as tbe
horses. He thought that the amount
should he granted,
Aid. Hillyer as a member of the Fire
Committee favored the proposition.
Aid. Beer th night that in view of
the building of a new Oity Hal], it
would not be iesirable to incur any
expense on the present building.
Aid. Hillyer���If there is a City Hall
built it will never be on this site; it
will be some place down town.
The proposition was adopted,and the
amount voted.
Be Mr. Traves application to put a
boulevard on Cedar street, the Oity
Engineer said he would not advise
Mr. Traves to put a boulevard ns the
grade would havo to he altered.
Mr. T. Madden wrote asking the
Council to put down n sidewalk at his
new building on Ward Street, and to
allow him to put in stops to Ihe bu.se-
nient from said sidewalk, he undertaking to place railings around the
steps   for   pu lio   prote t.o-..
Till   '���.' :;      ,   ���;' ; illl' w.i(.
six-foot sidewalk on the pcuIIi side of
Silica Street between the Episcopal
Church and Josephine Street.
The petition was granted. It was
agreed to extend the cleetiic light system from Hennryx to Silica.
A letter was read from Secretary
Brown explaining what he termed an
erroneous statement by Aid. Beer, as
to tbe Smelter Bund. The letter stated
that the band on celebration day received just what the committee donated, $S each, but had not asked for anything.
Aid. Beer said he understood thnt
the band had asked au exorbitant sum
for the oelebration, During the summer months when the band could give
open air concerts, be would not object
to tne Oouooil contributing to then
fuiins, but under present conditions lie
did object.
Tho Mayor reported that the caretaker at the cemetery had asked for nn
increase of salary. He was at
receiving but $25 per month.
It was agreed to make the salary in
future $35.
The Council then proceeded to consider tho by-law closing up certain

Col. Peters, D. O. C., on Sunday
morning visited ihe rifle range in
company with T.ieut. Beer, and was
not at all favorably impressed with the
place. He considered it too much uphill, and not close enough to tbo City.
The Colonel commissioned Lieut.
Beer to try and make arrangements
with the property holders ot Bogus-
town for ti rifle range there. Col Peters nlso interviewed some of the aldermen with the object of securing room
for nn armory aud storage for tbo Maxim gun. Au understanding was arrived nt that this accommodation might
be provided in the additional wing to
be put up at the fire hall. On tbe previous evening Col. Peters inspected the
local volunteers al the rink. There
were thirty volunteers present, whioh
wns a full muster, exclusive of the
men who volunteered for service in
Africa and those on leave, of absence.
Lieut. Beer, who was being examined
for his commission, wus called upon to
put tbo men through company formations and exorcise, which elicited from
the inspecting officer the wannest
praise. Second Lieutenant Day next
took the company in baud and put tlio'

On several of the thoroughfares on
which numerous trenches havo had tn

the condition of the surface ground is
such that wagons sink almost to the
hubs. It takes a couple of men all
their time t. keep the street crossings
passable. There is a general feeling
that the City Council ought to do
something towards paving or raacad-
nmi/.iiig the street.
There is no recognized time in Nelson, which is a great public inconvenience. There are not a dozen clocks
oi watches in the City which agree,
the difference being all tbe way fiom
five to fifteen minutes It is bad
enough to have this wide range for
guess work, and it would ho some consolation if mutters were not getting
worse. However, since the Australian
Salesman distributed a couple of score
of watches on Saturday night, tbo confusion which heretofore prevailed has
been intensified. Nono of those timepieces agree, and worse still, tbey are
not likely to. When they "stnp short,
never to go again," like Grandfather's
Clock, there will be some chance of a
return to the fifteen minute limit.

A very good looking property, whion
lies at the suminit of the bill near the
King Solomon Group, is known us the
Paymaster, says Mr. F. L,. T). Smith. I
miniiif: editor of the Toronto World.
This property, in which Mr. Robert
Wood, of Greenwood, owns a half interest, is controlled by tbe Vancouver &
Boundary Creek Development aud
Mining Company. This corporation
by the way. is one of the largost inter -
��sted iu the West Fork District and it
controls some of the most promising
properties around Heaverton. This
company, which 1 have mentioned in
previous letters as owning property in
Him Boundary Creek ami Peutioton Districts, is an organization formed upon
lines similar to those upon wliich the
Toronto ic Western Company, of Toronto, was incorporated. It owns or
controls a long list of mining claims,
which it promises to float as subsidiary companies, it' ou development, tbey
take the status of mines. The corporation was organized by Mr. Robert j
Wood, tho pioneer aud father of Greenwood, and oue of tbo best known, most
successful aud most highly respected
citizens of British Columbia. It has
a capitalization of $500,000, divided
into 2,000,000 shares ol the par value
of 25 cents each, aud so far hardly any
stock has been sold, the original members of the company   having  found   it
Iof the plot now in use, and which will
I be available for seven years  to come.
We have the   assurance of Mr.   Cotton
that we will get the old cemetery site
j as a park and also the promise of Mr.
; Marpole, on the part of the O. P. R.
Another point to be taken into oousid-
eration is that the citizens sometime
ago would have been willing to give
the 0. F R a bonus of $20,000 for the
purpose of induoing them to come in
with their machine shops ana make
this a divisional point, and us we are
now getting all this without auy cash
bonus. I believe the ratepayers will
vote solidly for tho_by-law about to be

KEPT HIS CONTRACT.
A Chinese Coolie Sets But a Low Price
on His Life.
Mr. Donald D. Mann was interviewed last week in Montreal on his return
from China, where he had boon successful in obtaining some railroad concessions. Speaking of Chinese railroads in general and the Imperial Chinese Railway in particular, Mr. Mann
said:
"This last road has a curious history.
Years ago, when it had been completed, the tinti-railroad element gave
a poor coolie $70 to   allow   himself  to
possible to carry on their development I be ru" over by tho hTate? forPlpu '"j

1 hiB entire satisfaction he placed him-
of tbe corporation are that no promoters' stock was issued and that tho properties acquired were secured at actual
market values. The Vancouver and
Boundary Creek Company, as already
noted,has numerous properties in other
districts than  the West Fork.
The Paymaster, whi :h is  controlled
by this company, has heen bonded   for
$20,000 to au  English   Company, who
are carrying on  development work upon it.   I visited the locution and found
a ledge of quartz   three   or   four   feot
wide ou   the   surface, opened  up by a
slmft and test pits for  u   considerable
distance.    Tbe   shaft   is  down 85 feet
and at tho  bottom   tbe   ledgo is  well
mineralised with iron   pyrites and galena, with good gold values.

The latest advices from Toronto show
a decided   improvement   in tho   stocli
market   there,   the    market    closing

INFLEXIBLE AS FATE.
Mr. Alfred Aus'in, poet laureate  of
England,   perpetrated   the    following
lines ou the occasion   of the  breaking
out of the present war  in   the   Trans
vaal:
"When  for   a   passing   hour   Rome's
manly sway
Felt the sharp   shock   of Cannae's adverse day,
Forum, and   field,   and   Senate-House
wero rent
With cries   of   cor   misgiving nor lament,
Only of  men   contending   then who
should
Purchase the spot on which tho Victor
stood.
Legion   on legion sprang up from   the
ground,
Gleamed through   the   land, then over
ocean wound,
Till Scipio's eagles swarmed on Afric's
shore,
And Carthage   perished, to   insult  no
more.
Not less resolved than Rome,now England stands,
Facing  foul   fortune with unfaltering
hands,
Through her   vast Realms   is   neither
fear nor fend
But, culm in strength, and   steeled   in
fortitude,
She fills tho gaps of death wilh  eager
life,
That will nor lag nor  haggle   iu   the
strife,
Till, having backward   rolled the law
less tide
Of   trusted     treason,     tyranny,    and
pride,
Her Hug hath   brought,   inflexible a
Fate,
Charter  of   Freedom     to   a   fettered
State.''
A F.MR EXCHANGE.
AW, Beer is Satisfied That the Deal
With C. P. R, is a Desirable One.
At th.. recni interview between ihe
O P. It Officials and the City Council, Aid Beer appeared to be the only
member of the Council who expressed
himself as anxious to insist on better
terms than those outlined by tho railway company. He was seen by a
Miner reporter yesterday and asked if
he has since concluded that the bargain
was a fuir one.
"As a property holder in this City
and representative of the West Ward,''
said Aid. Boer, "I believe tho people
would bo better satisfied to buy the
forty acres the railway company offer
to give snd get the old cemetery sito
in addition for park purposes, but
rather than throw uny obstacle in the
way of the O. P. R. making this a divisional point, I strongly support the
exchange rot that I consider it an
equivalent for what wo are giving
them, but the importance to the City
of being made u divisional point is so
Rroat that it quite outweighs ull minor
Considerations. I understand the land
selected hy the City E-gineer is admirably suited for patk purposes. The
portion of tho recreation grounds under City control exchanged for these
forty acres, is but 1100 by 806, less two
lots already sold, ami throngh this a
street, is mapped   out.     I  am not sure
