TERRIBLE DESTRUCTION

Calcutta, Sept. 28.���Following yesterday's dispatches from the scenes of
the landslides and earthquakes in the
Himalayas comes the storv of the destruction of the Ida Villa, a branch of
the Calcutta Girls' school, supported
liy th�� American Methodists, nstelnted
by Miss Stahl, who saved many of the
children. A landslide compelled 'he
occupantB to leave the buildings, and
Miss Stahl, gnidinsr the children, commenced a perilous climb, finally gain
ing tbe road. All the time rain was
pouring down in torrents, the earth
was shaking, and the children were
terrified. Tbe blackness of night,
falling boulders, the crashing of trees,
and fears of tbe earthquake, finally
compelled the party to return to the
Ida Villa. Even then Miss Stahl had n
struggle with the children, who, fearing the coilaps.- of the house, sought to
Hy into the night. Misses Reid and
Sonndry finally made another attempt
to escape with the children. They
were, however, overwhelmed by sleet.
Thi teachers escaped but many of the
children perished. In the meantime
the Ida Villa bad been also destroyed.
Will Burbeo, the solo survivor, says
that when it was seen that escape was
impossible a sister made them all kneel
in prayer,and while kneeling the house
was swept away. it is estimated that
the loss to the tea garden propiretors
alone is about 16,000,000.

HOSTILITIES   IMMINENT
War Regarded as Inevitable.���Arms  and
Ammunition For Transvaal.
GOVERNMENT CHARTERS STEAMSHIPS
The Orange Free State, by Resolution Passed in the Volks-
raad Decide to Support Transvaal in Case of
War.���Troops from New Zealand.
London, Sept. 28. ���A cable dispatch
to The Times from Capetown says:
"The Boers would have taken tbe
initiative by now but for the scarcity
of water,there nor. being yer sufficient.
There will be great difficulty in providing food supplies for people remaining at Johannesburg wheu hostilit'es
commence."
Several responsible persons wbo have
clung to the belief in an ultimate
peaceful settlement, no.v regaid war
as inevitable. The Birmingham Post
says two cars of arms leave Hamburg
Friday for the Tursavaal, comprising
50,000 improved Mausers, 500,000 cartridges and several mortars for djna-
mite cartridges.
Halifax, N. S., Sept. 28.���Sir Cbas.
Tupper, leader of the Canadian Parliamentary Opposition, speaking at
Maritime fair to an audience of sev-
eral thousand people, referred to the
present Transvaal crisis. He said if
Great Britain became involved in war,
the Canadian Government should send
a regiment of troops to England, fully
equipped, and place them at the disposal of the Imperial Government.
The statement provoked great enthusiasm. Major Borden, Commander of
the Queen's Nova Scotia Hussars, has
offered the services of his troops tc
Joseph Chamberlain, Secretary of State
for the Colonies, for duty in the Transvaal
London, Sept. 28.���The D*i]y Chronicle's Capetown correspondent says:
"I have leceived information of
highest importance as to the possibility of n peaceful solution of the difficulty. Complete estrangement exists between Sir Alfred Miluer and Mr. Hof-
meyer and Afrikander leaders. Persons enjoying the confidence of the
Transvaal Government, however, are
convinced that if the Imperial Government empowers Hofmeyer to assure
tbe Transvaal that five years franchise
will seouie peace, other questions being dealt with by tbe reformed Republic gradually or by arbitration, all existing differences will disappear.
New Orleans, La , Sept. 28.���The
British Government chartered two
steamships yesterday in Liverpool of
the Elder Dempster lino to sail to New
Orleans and load mules, supplies, forage and teamsters for some South
African port. The first of the vessels
will be dno in that port October 4th
and 5th and tbe second a few days
later. One will carry 700 and tho
other 1200 mules.
London, Sept. 28.���The decision of
the Volksraad of tbo Orange Free
State to join with the Transvaal in
the ovent of hostilities, although fully
expooted, is the leading news today,
and will naturally stiffen tte Boers'
independent attitude. The Rand's resolution has made the brotherhood of
arms between the Transvaal and the
Orange Free State, <f which hitherto
there was only a Strong probability, an
absolute certainty, and tho British
will have to face ihe situation.
The Volksraad's resoution was as
follows:
"The Raad, having read paragraph
2 of tho President's speech, and the
official documents and correspondence
submitted therewith, having regard
for the strained state of affairs
thoughout the whole of South Africa,
which has arisen in consequence of
the difference between tho Imperial
Government and the Government < f
the Transvaal which threatens to lead
to hostilities, a calamitous consequence
which to white inhabitants will be
immeasurable.
"Being otnnocted with the Transvaal by the closest confederacy, and
standing in friendliest   relntious possi
ble with the Imperial Government
fearing that, should war break out be
twecn them, a hatred between the
Europpan race would be born which
will arrest and retard peaceful development in tbe states and colonies of
Africa, and develop a distrust of the
futnre.
"Feeling that a solemu duty rests
upon it of toing everything possible to
avoid shedding of blood,
"Considering that tbe Transvaal
Government, during its negotiations
with the Imperial Government, wliich
have extended over several months, has
made every endeavor to arrive at a
peaceful solution of the difference raised hy allies of the Transvaal and taken
nn by the Imperial Government as its
own cause, which endeavors have, unfortunately, had only this result: That
British troops were concentrated on
the border of the Transvaal, and are
! still being strengthened.
"Resolved, That we instruct tbe
Government to'still use every means to
maintain and insure peace, and in a
peaceful manner contribute towards
the solution of existing difficulties,
provided it be deemed not violating
honor and principles of the Free State
and Transvaal and wished the ministry to make known its opinion that
there exists no cause for war, and that
war against the Transvaal, ns now undertaken or occasioned by the Imperial
Government, will morally be war
against the whole white population of
Africa, and in its consequences criminal, for come what may,the Free State
will honestly and faithfully fulfill its
obligations towards the Transvaal, by
virtue of a political alliance .between
the two Republics.''
Intense excitement continues to prevail at Pretoria, where apparently it is
believed there is no escape from war.
The Field hornet at Pretoria is again
scving out rifles. Commandering is
a itively proceeding and all preparations are being made to take the field.
The Burghers are getting uneasy at
the concentration of British troops between Ladysrnith and l.aings Neck,
especially at Gletohon and Dundee.
The nominal reason for concentration
is protection of Dundee ooal fields, but
the Boers do not intend to be caught
napping, and are now massing around
Vriyhead, not however, merely as a
protective measure, but to be prepared,
unless British reinforcements across
the bordor prevent, to make a dash in
force through a portion of Zululand,
crossing Buffalo river at a point below
Rorkes drift and then seizing the railroad, cut off British garrisons at Dundee and Ladysrnith from the south,
which would not only interrupt British lines of communication, but wonld
seriously interfere with the forward
movement In order to watch this
portion of the lailroad exposed to Boer
incursion the British post will be established at Rorkes drift.
The Daily News, wliich appeals to
tho Government to await President
Kroger's reply before sending a second
despatoh, says: "If, as has been asserted on behalf of the Transvaal, all
trouble would have been asserted on
behalf of the Transvnul, all trouble
would Bave been avoided had Mr.
Chamberlain's last despatch last Friday said convention instead of convention", we do no bolievo a British Cabinet would decline to clear the matter
up. It is for President Kruger to
speak. It is, indeed, only a matter of a
consonant; for wo are convinocd that
it is in his power to get the consonant
cut off.
The Pretoria correspondent of the
Daily Telegraph says: "Tho Transvaal
executive is absorbed in war preparations. Many Boers oppose aggressive
action on religious grounds. There
1 have   been   local   thunderstorms   and
ruins at Johannesburg   and  in various
parts of the Orange Free State."
London, Sept. 28.���Tho Daily Citron-
iole suvs:
"We understand, ou the best authority, that the delay attending tbe Boer
reply is due to hopes still entertained
by the Transvaal of a peaceful settlement The Boers distrust Mr. Chamberlain. They tear that if they made
concesssions, he will onlv increase bis
demands, therefore they have been
trying to to approach Lord Salisbury
directly.
"They trust the Prettier as much as
th<y distrust tbe Colonial Secretary.
If Lord Salisbury would give a pledge
that the Golden bridge was meant seriously, they would venture npou it.
We regret to say that this last desperate effort has broken down, since Lord
Salisbury cannot go behind Mr. Chamberlain without creating a Cabinet
crisis. It is deplorable, nevertheless
that state etiquette should be strong
enough to obtruct tbe path of peace
We hope it is not true that Mr. Cham
berlain intends to demand disarmament, a heavy indemnity and the
withrawal of Dr. Leyds, which could
only result iu war.''
The paper suggests that the Orange
Free State should appeal for arbitration under the arrangement concluded
at the Hague.
Dundee, Scotland, Sept. 28.���On
receiving the freedom of tbe city of
Dundee today, Mr. A. J. Balfour, the
Fiut Lord of tbe Treasury uud Government leader in the House of Commons, said the Government nad longed
for and striven for a peaceful and honorable solution of the narenni.il South
African difficulty. "If tluit honorable
solution doe* not prove a peaceful solution, the fault rests on other heads
than ours." Mr. Balfour would not
say that he had given up all hopes, but
he now spoke in a very different tone
from what he should have done a
month or even a 'ortnight ago. Tlr.iy
had reached a point, he added, when,
if he judged aright, those responsibb
for the policy of the Dutch Republic
refused to give way; a point on which
"we could not and would not give
way." This statement caused an outburst of cheering. Continuing, Mr
Balfour remarked : "The interests of
the South Africans, civilization and
national honor have all marie such a
course impossible for us." This called
for renewed cheers.
Wellington, N. Z., Sept. 28.���Tbe
Government of this colony decided te-
day to equip and send 200 men to tin
Transvaal. Tbe House sang the National antbem when this step was decided upon.

The Silver King mine was the scene
cf a very pleasant incident yesterday,
pleasing not only to the net ho participants on both sides, but to all those
who appreciate what it 'meatus to the

of tho working miners.
Mr. M. S. Daws, the popular superintendent of the Silver King, is about
to revisit hiB home on a prolonged visit, after an absence of many years, and
has in consequence Deigned his posi-
ioi, and it was in view of this approaching departure tnat the employes
at the mine, in an address read by the
Assistant Superintendent, Mr. Hey
land, expressed their feelings so warmly, and to keep the occasion bright in
Mr.Davyb'memory presented him with
a ban isomc gold watch and chain ami a
solid gold match box, ami Mrs. Davys,
whose kindly interest in the men made
all feel her their (riend, and whoso
gracious hospitality so many have enjoyed, with a very handsome diamond
and pearl ting. Mr. Davys replied
with much feeling, and his remarks
were received with enthusiastic cheers.

the rules and regulations of the course
during the com.ng yacht races, which
were submitted by the regatta committee of the New York Yacht (inn.
There ure nine rules providing for the
position of Ihe patrol fleet, in every
possible contingency and insuring a
clear course. A clear space of half a
mile about the stinting line will be
maintained until the race has started.
After crossing the line, the torpedo
fleet will form a column and stand on
a course parallel with the yachts. The
revenue cutters will form a line astern.
This formation will insure a clear
space one mile astern of and to windward of tho competing yacht". Provision is made for maintaining the
space under all conditions. Elaborate
rules are laid down for the triangular
races. On the run in all vessels will
be kept front crossing the sailing lino
of the yachts,but must keep to leeward
of the patrol. Violations of these rules
will entail the same penalty as violation of tho navigation laws of tho
United States. Offending vessels will

and most persistently repeated is that

GROWING SERIOUS.
Day by day the industrial situation
in Kootonay grows worse. The managers and the miners get no nearer together; iu fact, they are farther apart.
And the effect is that every branch of

the City were never so extensive.
Canadian Paoiflo Company havo expended large sums in improving tbe

in Lardeau is proceeding actively. Tho
tramway and gasworks furnish employment to large numbers of men.
There have been large expenditures on
corporation improvements. All thes^
are in addition to the regular legitimate business, and they havo made
money plentiful  and trade active.
Through it all, however, is felt the
effect of the Eight-Hour law ; aud in
another month or two, when these temporary aids to prosperity have taken
their leave, us they will, that effect
will be experienced with greatly increased force. What ihe condition of
Nelson will bo then is tbe general condition throughout Kootcnay today. Is
it impossible to impress upon the
Government tho extreme gravity of
the situation and the supreme necessity of relieving it, if this entire section
of the Province is not to be given a set-bucK from which it will
take years, instead of month, to
recover? Mr. Cotton was through
here the other day and gave no hope ol
relief. Latest advices from the Capital
are to the effect that the Government
will not recomme d the repeal of the

that the interests of everybody are

The Legislature must lake action. 11
Will never do to permit the present
situation to continue indefinitely. If
the Government of today will not take
the load in smoothing tho rough
places, they must, give place to other
men who have a higher sense of public
duty am! public responsibility. It may
not be necessary to go the length of repealing Ihe Eight Hour law, although
that would he the short way out of the
difll ulty. It might be possible to compromise on the repeal of the penalties,
which would leave the minors free to
act on what they considered best in
their own interests. To refuse this
liberty is, we have no doubt, beyond
the competence of any Legislature; but
us no one shows a disposition to test
the constitutionality of ihe Aot, the
members themselves should repair the
error,and thus afford an opportunity for
the miners and the mine managers to
come together.

A writer in the October Munsey re-
relates the Peiho incident of 185!),
when the American Admiral Tattnall,
declaring that "blond was thicker than
water,'' violated the laws of neutrality
and turned in to help tbe British. It
was very natural, and, therefore, very
fine. But Admiral Tattnall was not, as
claimed, the first to use the "famous
phrase" that "has become historical."
It is older than 1859. If the writer
will read the 27th chapter of "Guv
Mannering", a not unknown novel by
a not unknown author named Sir Walter Scott, lie will find the expression,
"blood is thicker than water."

The Order in Flourishing Oonntion.-Mr.
Welsh Makes a Criticism on the
Eight Hour Law-
M. D. Welsh, Grand Master of the
Independent Order of Old Fellows for
British Columbia, is making an extended trip Ibrougbont the whole mining region of British Columbia. Mr.
Welsh was seen last night by a representative of Tho Miner, to whom he
gave some idea what such n trip menus
to him.
"This is the most wonderful country I oversaw," said Mr. Welsh, "I
am astounded at what I have seen I
knew through reading the papers and
conservations ot acquaintances that
this nnnntrv \va�� of importance, but T
ha I uo adequate conception of it. I
can scarcely realize yet, that what I
have seen can be true, that it is not all
a dream. I have travelled extensively
throughout North America, in Canada,
and in nineteen different state- of our
sister country adjoining, but 1 have
never seen anything before in my life
to equil this K'i enny country Ten

its geographical position, wonld hi the
central or distribnti g roint for the
interior, end tort.iv I so my OTPdic-
tion veveiied I can l<>oi( into tie
future and see Nelson one of the most
imoortant cities in tho Dominion of
Canada. I paid a visit to tbe Athabasca mine yesterday, in company with
seme of the business men of Nelson.
We drove to the mine in a hack, over
one of the most 'twisty' roads I ever
saw. It is so crooked I don't see how
it stays there. Naturally it ought to
wriggle away. I entered the mine and
examined some of the workings, and
saw a fine quality of ore. The mill
also was visited, and I was very much
interested in what 1 saw. From here
we bad a view of the Silver ICing
mine and sawmill. From the Athabasca we had a splendid view of tho City
and Lake."
Mr. Welsh is making this trip in bis
offioinl capacity as Grand Master, and
is visiting the different lodges under
his jurisdiction.
"I left my home, New Westminster,
continued Mr. Welsh, "on the 17th cf
this month, and came to Rossland,
where I found  the Rosdattd lodge in a
fine condition, three new members be-
" ing taken into fellowship while I was
there. I saw the famous mines of that
place, and wus surprised nnd interested
in everything in connection with
them, Rosslnud is a very busy, pro-
grcssive placf. From Rossland I came
to Tr.il, accompanied by a delegation
of the Rossland lodge I was met
there by another delegation of twelve
from Nelson, and a new lodge was instituted at Trail with n membership of
thirty-six, and fifteen applications for
membership for tho ncx1; meeting.
From Trail I came to Nelson. Last
week I visited the lodges at Slocan
City and Sandon, where I found both
lodges in a healthy, flourishing condition. At Sandon I was tendered a
banquet. Mr. A. H. Clements, of this
City, grand chaplain of the order for
B. C. attended me to Sandon and Slocan City. Last Monday night, I met
tbe Nelson lodge, which I find to be
in a first class condition. One of the
fittest banquets I 'ver nt-tended in my

Slocan country business is at a standstill It is tho insult of the passage of
this li\y; and while not sufficiently
familiar with all conditions relating

to convince me that tho Eight Hour

(���oast could be brought to realize tbe
exact nature of things here, how business and industries are paralyzed, and
how the Kootonay country is bottled
up and progress retarded by tho Eight-
Hour law, a howl would go up from
the people there which would he

Mr. Welsh snys that ho has been

leaves for Oranbrook tonight, whore bo

"You are commanded to appear at

"The Eight-Hour law is suspended.
Hostilities begin in the morning, and
a seat has been reserved for you on the

a banquet such as the old Romans never dreamed of will be spread at Davenport's. Eating, drinking, singing and
short sneeches are tho order of the

struggling up the hill through intermittent rock bluffs, has come to a hard

The statement may be a little surprising, but it is none the less true,
that ripe wild strawberries were picked within tbe City limits of Nelson
yesterday, This streak of good weather seems to have fooled nature, but the
fact that it is good enough to ripen
strawberries speaks volumes for the
Huh fall weather that we are now enjoying.
The Lacrosse mutch which takes

per ton, while ores io British Colombia tween Jim PendergrJBt,of Sacramento,
are far above that amount.    The great and Chas. Hosklns, of  this   place, the
bulk of the Province is still iu tho experimental stage,but so far indications
1 latter is dead.    Hoskins
out in   the tenth   round
warrant the outlay of capital to treat
the ores, and at present British capital
seem* to be inclined to come to this
sootion.
Mr. Mansfield  came   to   British t'o-
Ininbia  a year ago  and   secured   the
.Inker Kmup, on the north fork of Kaslo Creek, for a Loudon syndicate.   The
properties were almost inaccessible,and
in spite of the discouraging prognostications   of   ninny experienced  miners
Mr. Mansfield went to work   to develop the properties, took supplies over the
glacier, ten   thousand   feet  above  sea
level, on men's backs, built his cabins
in three feet of snow, and developed the
mine iu such a way  that   it   gave  remarkable results. Theie were the usual
drawbacks iu this work, on account of
the excessive cold, but these difficulties
only stimulated Mr.Mansfield to greater efforts, and every obstacle was overcome as   it   presented   itself.    Having
made a success of   a   property  against
such  odds, Mr. Mansfield   gained   the
confidence  not   only of his principals
but other large capitalists, who, when
he went to Europe, approached him to
secure properties for them.    He is now
here  representing  some  of   the  most
prominent   corporations   of   England,
and   will   secure  properties which   he
deems to be the milking of mines. Mr.
Mansfield does   not seem to  have been
liiiirh bothered  hy   his extremely busy
three  months in the old  world, for he
returned   with   every   evidence ot  bis
old-time energy still  being   np to the
concert pitch.    When asked   if, in the
event of   war in the Transvaal, capital
would be Reared away   fiom properties
there, to the benefit of  British Columbia. Mr. Mansfield said that for the first
few   months we would   feel the result
of an outbreak, for the money for mining   investment   generally   would   be
tighter, but ultimately it would   draw
capitnl   to   British   Columbia,  whore
there   is no danger of such a trouble
ever breaking out.
Regarding the effect of the Eight-
Hour law. Mr. Mansfield said that
every mining country will come sooner or later to tho eight hour day for
underground work, but that the wages
would have to be reduced. When the
wagps are reduced tho cost of living
will also bo reduced, aud consequently
the miner will find that he is just as
well off so earing high wages when
living is as excessively high,as ho is at
present. Among London capitalists
the Eight-Hour law is not disonssed as
much as the wages question, for it is
considered over there that we now give
too high wages.
Mr. Mansfield leaves shortly for Australia and New Zealand to look after
his mining interests there, but his chief
attention will be hereafter devoted to
British Columbia, which he consideis
as a country wondrously rich in miner-
ids. Early next year he will develop
and open up many properties iu various districts of the Kootenay, and will
hand them over ro large companies to
work them.
���   ���   ���
Mr .Tas. Poupore went to Lardo yes
terday afternoon, He says that there
is no place in British Columbia that
can equal the Lardo-Duncan for a mining oonntry. "Sell everything yon
have, and invest it in Ihe Lardo country," says Mr. Poupore.

iu the City |n the interests of that
company. Mr. YonRe is endeavoring
to get the peopit of Nelson Interested
In having n balloon ascension in tbin
Oity. Tho balloon is (If) feet high, 84
feet in diameter, and has J8U0 yards of
cloth in it. A drop from a parachute
at an elevation of 6,000 feet will be
made. Mr. Youge wants a guarantee
from the people of Nelson to the
amount of $100. He says : "The balloon is in Rossland, where we give an
aseeusion on Oct. I. It will cost us
$75 to conic to Nelson, and as there is
no place hero inclosed from which we
can make an ascension and be enabled
to receive any consideration in the
way of gate receipts, we desire to have
a guarantee from tho citizens here in
the sum of $100. Wo will bring an excursion from Kaslo and from Ymir,
and will not ask that any money be
paid to us until the ascension has been
satisfactorily made as advertisod."
Mr. Yonge was around tho Oity last
evening in company with Mr. Amiable, aud $af) iu subscriptions was scoured iu a short time. He will interview the citizens today further in this
