Tho Miner, in its Inst issuo, when
space wns so limited that but one fea-
ture of lust week's exclusion to the
Boundary Oountry���the social feature
���I'linld be presented, promised a further article on the trip whioh would

cannot lie learned of n'l.V eoiiiitry but
banquets at Grand Forks and Greenwood und a luncheon nt Phoenix, lie-
sides u visit to some of thn mines gave
the excursionists some ideu of the
country through which they traveled.
Tho thougblfulnoss of the Canadian
Paoiflo officials in allowing representatives of the loading business men to
visit this promising district under
suoh pleasant auspices was commented
on by all, both the guests of the company and tlm people of the Boundary
Country who thus hud an opportunity
to entertain an influential party and
who availed themselves to the full extent of tho opportunity.
To see the Boundary from the car
windows is to witness a succession ol
extremely beautiful views as ,i curve in
the splendidly constructed road opened a now vista of mountain, lake, nnd
river. As a rule the scenery, especially along the Kettle River Valley, is
more pastoral than in this district and
the sight of n large herd of cattle wan-
deimg tranquilly over au immense
plain through   which the Kettle River
citizens of other Kootenay towns. This
trade, which some day should reach
great dimensions, hns scarcely received
a thought as yet for it is the mines of
the Boundary that receives attention at
present. The population is pouring in
and the home market for produce is ol-
reaoy becoming a big one.
The main object of the trip was to
enable the business men of the Province to study tho means hy which the
trade of the country could be captured
and, of course, it was tho object of
the C. P. R, to introduce the buyer to
the sollev in order that trade relations
could be opened and tbe inrush of
freight, which the company is now
handling well, should continue to increase. It was necessary to expatiate
on the mines in older lo show the visitors that population must follow the
construction of the road and that the
market was one worth catering to.
At the banquets these points were
dwelt upon and all tho speeches were
filled with valuable information. In
Greenwood an address, teeming with
information, presented in extremely
g'.'od taste, was read. It is too long for
reproduction verbatim in Ibis short
sketch. Bnt a few selections must ue
made.
"it is not our intention" the report
said in pint, "to dwell upon the im-
pnrtanoe of Greenwood in oontra-dis-
tinotion to that of the othei towns in
the district. We recognize that yonr
visit i i to the Boundary ns a whole,
and it is as one of of the important
towns of the district. Hint we bid you
welcome. Onr merits and possible future as a city must be determined by
tho development of trade and industry
and as business men yon are well qunl-
ified to judge of the situtaion for yourselves. Greenwood is wide open for
your inspection. * * * Regarding
onr mines nud mineral resources, the
subject is too large for partionl��risiing
here. We believe, however, they are
destined to afford scope for tho greatest development yet witnessed on the
continent of America, with corresponding possibilities of oommeroial expansion; and that as representatives of
business interests in this Province you
will be slow to appreciate your opportunities. * * * No faot, we may be
permitted to observe, is morn significant nf what is contained in the
Boundary district thai mieh an undertaking should have been assumed,
largely on faith, by a corporation, the
management of which is noted for
grunt husiness capacity and wine foresight "
Mr. Peters responded biiefly, to the
address explaining thu object which
prompted the management of the C.'un-
Hilinn Pacilic Railway to run this excursion. On behalf of the management
of tue Canadian Paaifla Railway and
their excursionists, he til a liked Ihe
Greenwood people most heartily.
hoped the excursionists
with as high  opinion
and
would   return
;if   tho   bright
they bad seen and expressed tbeir de-p
sense of the hospitality of Greenwood
hy the magnificent banquet teuder.ni
ihem.
The hour beiug Inte, other subjects
were cut short, to enable the excur
sionists to get to bed so ns tn be up
early in the morning and visit tho
Phoenix camp, the Mother Lode, Midway and oilier points of interest. At
the Mother Lode they were shown
through the properly which the Miner
already ment killed. At Phoenix, the
deputation was received most hospitably by Mr. Heiiimeiiwnv. representing
flic Kim!, hill nnd Ironsides Company,
and after being shown through the
mine, were entertained at luioheon,
where those present were given an opportunity of expressing their surprise
and admiration of the mines in that
district.
The return to Greenwood was made
in ample time to allow tho exouision-
ists to see what a splendid town is
growing up there and to further ro
ceivo tiie hospitality of the citizens.
At 8.80 Greenwood was left aud Grand
Porks was the next stop. Here the
Board of Trade gave an excellent banquet in the splendid Vale Hotel. The
programme of speeches was slightly
different from that of the Greenwood
banquet in order to allow another
hatch of excursionists to express themselves.
The toast of tne Parliament w.is responded to by tho Hon. T. Mayne
Daly, Senator Reid and Thomas Ear).
M, P.. of Victoria.
Mr. Daly, who spoke first, made a
most eloquent speech, full of patriotism, mid expressing the greatest confidence in the future of tho Kootenays
and tbe Boundary district. He enlo-
gized the Parliament of Canada,which
hnd shown such sound stniemeuship
which resulted in the successful com
pi tion of the greatest railway corporation, under one management, on tho
continent, and he eulogized tic various
officials of the company. His remarks
were warmly applauded. He was followed by Senator Reid, who spoke in
the, same strain and spoke of tho old
Caribou days nud contrasted the difference of transportation in those days,
(when, as n free miner, ho packed his
blankets,) with the facilities now
afforded Southern British Columbia by
the railwaj construction.
Mr. Earl nlso made a very interesting speech, referring to business development in the Cjast cities and the
value of the trade of the Kootenays
and the Boundary district to them, and
Imped tho dny was not far distant
when a direct line, westbound, from
Grand Forks to tho Coast would -m
completed.
Sister Oitir.q and Boards of Trade
were responded to hy Mayor Goodeve,
of Kossland, Mr. J. 0. MoLagau, Pies-
iiient Vancouver Board; Mr. Mo-
Qundo, Vice-President Victoria Board.

Hoard aud W. A. Macdonald, y. C,
of Nelson. Mayor Goodavo made one
of his usual eloquent speeches, full of
enthusiasm and hope for the Kootenays
and Boundary distriot, which eleotri-
tied the party and brought forth rounds
of applause. Mr. MoLagau made a
most interesting anil able speech, which
was listened to with the utmost attention, etc. Mr. Harvey, nf Fort
.Strele, spoke ably of the railway extensions during the past year and his
Strong hopes for the futuio of Kust
Kootenay, and Mr. W. A Macdonald,
made a short hut very ablo speech.
The railway interests were then proposed and responded io by Messrs. F.
W. Peters. Cameron, Captain Troup
and Sullivan. Mr. Peters expressed his
iip,.recii,tion of the many kind things
Unit Imd been said nf * th" C. P. l-t.,
nud assured them that if the trip re
suited in a better knowledge oi: the
country being gained by the Coast, as
well as the Kootenay business men,
who were their guests, resulting in
greater confidence between the shippers and the business men of the
Boundary and if it assisted in doing
awny with any local jealousies that
might possibly exist between the
different cities, ho was assured his
company would lie amply repaid foi
any trouble they had been put to. It
was the first time that the Coast and
the Kootenay business men bad hnd an
opportunity of getting together and he
felt satisfied the result would he a benefit, not only to the merchants thom
selves, but to tho 0, P. li. The interests of tne business and mining men
of British Columbia were identical
with those of the Canadian Pacific
Railway, they needed each other and
the success of one meant the success of
the other. He hoped that business
men would not overlook this fact, because it was a fact lie appreciated
fully the kind things that had been
said of the company as a corporation
and of the officials Individually. If
the officials of the C. P. R, took interest in their work nnd showed a desire
to advance the company's interest, it

YAOIU RACING  LULES.
Royal St.   Lawrence   and   White Bear
Clubs Draw up Agreement.
Montreal, Dec. 11.���The agreement
made between the Royal St. Lavu'ence
and tho Whito Bear Yacht Club has
beeu sent back for the signature of the
St. Lawrence Clcb, the White Bear
club agreeing to all the suggestions
made. The articles of agreement call
for some ohanges, which will give
new designers something to think
about and put some difficulty in the
way of freak constructions.
Yachts shall not e xceed 23 feet racing length,measured undor tho following table: Load water line plus the
square root of sail area (not to exceed
ijOO feet) divided by two equal racing
lengths. There is a, slight difference
of BO pounds which relates to the coin-
position of the center hoard metal.
Fixed ballast aud crew weights remain
practically tho same as before. Full
particulars of bracing, floors, knees,
scantling, etc., nre elaborately gone in
to in the new agreement.
THE MOLINEUX TRAIL.
Case Now Looks Blacker Thau Ever
For Prisoner.
New York, Dec. 11.���At the trial
of Roland 15. Moliueux foi the murder
of Mr* Kate Adams, Miss Me'ando
testified she had been employed as fore
woman of Molinenx's Paris green department at his New York factory,
that she was accustomed to visit him
nt bit) private rooms on the second
floor, thut he frequently made her
presents of books and papers and that
while in bis room ouce during his absence, she helped herself to half a dozen sheets of the Robins egg-blue paper
with the crest of three interlaced crescents. The significance of this evidence is found in tho fact that Molineux in his testimony before the coroners' jury said thut lie never possessed
any paper of this character.
The attempt was made to prove that
sho was si ill receiving weekly checks
from the attorneys of Molineux, but
though the witnesses nodded an affirmative it was promptly ruled out by the
recorder. The remainder of the day
was taken up w'th *he routine of ex.
pert testimony and   medical  evidence.

Paris, Dec. 11.���The Senate, sitting
as a High Court, today resumed the
hearing of witnesses in the caso of the
Auteuil disturbances. Tho Count de
Dion insisted upon making a speech
before the taking of the oath to which
M. Failheres, President of tho Court'

hearing M. Faillieres read a decision
sentencing M. Cully to three months
Imprisonment and excluding him from
Court for a week and excluding M.

Loudon, Dec. 12.������(!>. a. m.)���No
further news has been received to
remove the mystery overhanging Genera] Gatacre's retreat from Stormborg.
He has not yet forwarded the promised additional message and the censorship has prevented the correspondents
from explaining the matter. Whilo it
appears to be generally admitted that
General Gatacre is inclined to overwork his men, Lord Durham's remarks
are considered as in rather bad taste.
Until General Gatacre has given his
explanation it is felt that considerable
allowance must be made for the extreme difficulty iu getting Intelligence
in a country whore the Inhabitants
are iu strong sympathy with the enemy. Stormberg is described as a
stronger position than Laing's Nek.
The ouly road winds through lofty
hills, and   Hanking is impossible.
Colesburg, is also said to be au almost impregnable position, aud us no
troops are available to reinforce the
columns acting iu those "directions, it
becomes confident that General Gut-
acre's misfortune or error will delay
the invasion of tho Free Stale for per-
haps some weeks. It is exceedingly
probable he will be compelled to retire
on Queenstown nud wait for reinforcements, wliich can hardly reach him
until Sir Charles Warren's division
arrives at the Cape. The first detach,

General French is not compelled to
retreat, ho will be obliged to pause in
his advance.
It now seems certain thnt the seventh

MASON'S GALLERY PLAY.
Washington, Dec. II. ���Mr. Mason,
of Illinois, addressed the Senate today
on his resolution expressing tbe sympathy of the Senate with the South
African Republio in their war with
Great Britain and extending lo them
the hopes of the Senate for the success
of their arms, saying that the war
with monarchy and republicanism
began iu earnest ou July-I, 1776, and
no treaty of pence bus ever I'i , i: 0011-
��� .nrli'ii or ever will be until im. question is settled right. The monarobial
trust company, though often quarreling
among themselves have always agreed
on one thing.thai a republic is a mistake.
Mr. Mason maintained thnt. nnder
the Monroe doctrine and on precedents
previously well established, the United StHtes had a right to extend its
sympathy and hopes fir BUCcess to thu
Boers in their >nu^r.ir.' tor liberty ns
it bail io interfere with Spa'ii in its
conduct of affaire in Cuba. He urged
that the interest of this country was
aroused by the fact that the South African    war   was   a    struggle   between
demoorauy aud royalty,between the divine right of kings unit the divine
right of man.
Referring to Mr. Chamberlain, be
said :
"Let the distinguished liliputian
statesman ranting around iu Glad
stone's shoos trying to undo his work
and break Ins promises be assured that
In- is deceiving no one, except possibly
himself.''
He declared that no nation except a
professed bully would make demands
upon another that Great Britain made
upon the Transvaal Republic and concluding said :
"They have nn tbougbi to excite prejudice by our pust diffeiences with
England.    Thev ate forgotten  and for-
given,but when th" colors ni n republic
nre struck and we sit silent, it would
s'oiu that wo are ashamed or tired cf
our institutions, anil b) our silence
consent to the distinction of self-government in Africa, If I am right,
this resolution will   help.    It win  say
to  the   World,    'Washington,    Monroe,
Weh-iei arc dead, but the American
policy still lives.' It may sting the
oppressor but n will be a message nt
affection and hope   to   the struggling
Republics. "
Mr.   Lodge,   after   expressing    the
wish thai Mr. Mason might have delivered his address in the British Parliament, snid tbere was a wide gulf
between private opinion and public
official expressions. The executive department of tbe Government, he said,
had assumed a neutral attitude towards the Siniih African war. The
passage of this resolution by us would
change Immediately that attitude.
"II we are to depart from tho position (,f neutrality," said Mr, Long*,
"it ought to be a  subject of the  most
serious consideration,''
He. moved, therefore, that the resolution be sent to the oommittoe on for*
eigu relations, ami it was so ordered.
LEMIEUX ARRESTED.

plication of the Smith African Republio through the medium of tho Nether-
hind's Government, the British Government has eonsotlto,' to supply the

WHAT DOES fi.  C  LACK?
P
The oulbreak of hostilities in   South
Africa hns caused   considerable uneasiness with cupitalists, not   only in   tbe
two  great English   sponking   nations,
lint throughout   the wliolo  of Europe.
Though in some   cases perhaps not vitally interested in the enurso uf events
and llie linnl outcome  of the fray, the
war has undoubtedly   given a   soare to
nil those interested   in  land  and mining corporations everywhere 111   South
Africa; consequently   we find on reading foreign exchanges, that   capitalists
ure seeking fresh   holds for the investment   of   their   means,   The   lirst   to
benefit by the   present war   havo been
Australia and New  Zealand, in which
Colonies vast amounts are today being
invested in  mines.    Notwithstnndins
that British Columbia   is only   twelve
or fourteen days'   journey   Irom   London, ngainst thirty days from the West
Australian Gold fields, and thirty-two
days to New Zealand, via  Sun  Francisco, it seems strange when the value
01 our mines arc taken   into   consideration, that   thin   Frovwco   should   be
neglected   by   those    seeking   investments,    There   must   be   some    causo
for this effect.    Wa   know that all  the
Australian  Colonijs   have    real   live
Agent-Generals  with  well  appointed
London ollices, where   every   information is imparted to those seeking news
as to the resources of the   several   Colonies    constituting   Australia,   while
the Government of each Colony spends
iiiniiey in a   liberal manner  in   advertising the   resources   of   tho   country.
Well written pamphlets are distributed
most piofusely in   the  direction  from
which the most benefit can be  obtained, and occasionally we  find   this or
that Agent-3enural speaking at a public meeting���or banquet, and in  every
case the colony for whom   he  acts,   is
brought   into favorable  notice  and if
opportunity occurs he displays the pro
duets of  his   Colony���not   only of   its
mineral section,   but   its agricultural
produce.    The   museum    attached    to
each   London   office,   is well  supplied
with the different classes of   ore   from
the  various   distliots,   together  with
clips of   wool   and   samples  of   grain
etc., whilst a classified pamphlet   got1
more into detail as to  probabilities  of
investment in this or that department.
All of which is  of  great  benefit, not
only to the Colonies in  question,   but
to those 111 England seeking homos beyond the seas, where fortune   is  more
likely to bo obtained, mid competition
iu every kind of business  is Ies;
Again   each   office   ih   supplied   with
good   limps,   and notes specifying  the
roads made and the means of reaching
almost any   point   of   their  territory.
This lust   item is very important, aud
if   now   districts   are  found   wherein
1 he preoions metal is  discovered,   the
first step of a Colonial Government   is
to borrow money at n   moderate interest, to build wagon roads���and in most
oases, railroads   into  the new   region,
and notwithstanding the heavy liabilities of the present Colonies in tho wny
of national   (louts,   tho   increasing   of
these does not seom to deter tliein from
accumulating more, that   is where the
welfare of their country warrants it.
Why should not British Columbia
be an attract ion for the English aud
European investor? Why are wo less
spoken of than the Australasian Colonies'; Whv should youth Africa���even
without thn war tioublo, be considered a better held for investment than
British Columbia'' Does the value of
Iho mineral wealth of their auriferous
districts outweigh unrs. Wo say decidedly 110. Tho average value of
the ores in lhe mines of Smith Africa
does not exceed |l*j per ton; in Ans
tralia the values do not exceed iJIN pes
(nn, whilst iho product from the Wai-
hi, Hie mine par excellence in New
Zealaud, does not average over $16 per
Inn. Vet all of these Colonies aie
meeting with the recognition of capitalists against the wonderful products
of British Columbia, especially the
West Kootenay portions of this great
auriferous Province. Ask mine managers of experience and they will tell
you that in Montana, U. S., they nie
treating ores exact ly similar to ours,
and although the value is only $7 per
ton, the corporations operntl ng the
works, give dividends to the shareholders, How many mines in Kootonay,
if properly equipped with efficient
working oapital, would if worked in
lhe same manner as those of the United iStatos be able to pay substantial
dividends to tbe shareholders? We do
liol euro to take the responsibility of
answering this question, but we know
for certain that many a valuable
prospect has lying on the dump thon-
smds of tons of ore that will yield a
higher bullion value por ton than is
extracted from the most prosperous
mines in Booth Africa, or from the
mines that pay regular dividends in
the U.iiti'd States to companies with
enormous capital. Yet capital does
not come onr way. We have interviewed tlm representatives of English
ami American capitalists and   uftet   a
careful study of tho remarks passed by
both, wo have come to the conclusion
that B. 0. is behind the times. If
wo want good companies to work
which   enn   spend hundreds   of   thou-
units nf dollars���like cupitalists in
other centres���in .>;n-uing un our mag-
lillcenl country by building wngon
roads nnd making iho transportation
of mining requisites sufficiently cheap
and. if necessary, the building of ruil-
roatls lor the shipping of cue extracted
from the mines being developed al reasonable cost, we must bring tho attention of tlio capitalists to the certain
dividends that will accrue from their
investments. The Government of the
Province should follow the example of
the Governments of the Antipodes and
spend money in advertising. Every
day we may be missing golden opportunities in Loudon on account of the
Unenterprising Government now conn-oiling the affairs at Victoria neglecting such a rich held. Wo should impress on onr members thut thoy must
appreciate the fact that it costs money
to do advertising that will reap profits. Every merchant on Baker .Street
already knows it but our legislators do
not seem to have discovered the fact.
Wa have, dallied long enough. The time
is ripe for a change of methods and
Iho electors shonld, at lhe lirst opportunity cast their votes for those who
will pledge themselves to a policy tbat
will bo calculated to advance the progress of our mineral districts and
leavo at home those who have already
done their best to ruin the country, or
who might continue the ruining process if they but had an opportunity,
THE SrSTERS' SCHOOL.
The news that the Sisters of St. Joseph of Peace have decided to open a
school here lias been received with
general satisfaction. As only boys
under ten can be taken, it will really
be a first class day school for girls, an
institution winch has long been needed in Southern British Columbia. As
the years go by, the fair sex is making
more frequent and determined incursions into various paths of life thnt at
one time were considred the exclusive
territory of their masculino rivals, so
an establishment where girls cau bo
giveu a thorough business education
and be well grounded in stenography,
bookkeeping, typewriting and kindred
subjects, supplies u want that is and
will be increasingly felt in a growing
and thriving oommeroial centre like
Nelson.
Protestant parents need have no fear
that their children will be inculcated
with ideas foreign to the faith in
whioh tbey have boon brought up.
Tho rules of the or ler are distinct oil
this poiut, and the teaching will be
wholly secular. The sisterhood, winch
enjoys a grant from the Educational
] Department   in   England,   has   many
     thriving  schools   in the Old Oountry,
and the way in which they are conducted should be a guarantee of * tbe
ellicient management of the Nelson
school.

NELSON DAILY MINER, TUESDAY,   DECEMBER 12,  1899
BOARD OF TRADE
THE  OITY WHARF QUESTION DISCUSSED AT LENGTH.
Postal aud Telephone Arrangeniocts Pronounced Unsatisfactory���Cuat of
Talking With Groenwood.
The monthly mooting' of tbe Board
of Trade was hold last evening, Aid.
Fletoher presiding in the absence of
President J. B. liobertson. There was
u gnoil attendanoe.
Beoretary Swanuell mad an unswor
to a letter addressed by him to the teln-
phoue ootnpsny complaining of the nn-
Kiitisfncloi". nervine wbioh obtains in
Nelson.    The communication set forth
that improvements were being made,
ami that there would be no grounds for
complaint as soon as theso were effeot-
ed. As to the rates charged, the company pointed out that they nre losing
money in Rossland where there i�� keen
competition, and that the Nelson
charges wn'n moderate. They hoped
to give n loug distance service in the
near future.
Mr. Bannerman suggested thnt it
woauld not ho a hud idea to induce a
rival company to oorae to Nelson.
He raug up Greenwood the other day
and it cost $8.40. On another occasion
ho spent from (1 o'clock until 9 nt
night trying to catch Grand Korku,
and while lie failed to do so,^he charge
was $2,50. Such a service as this could
not he considered satisfactory.
Several members gave unpleasant experiences of the service,
A letter was nlso read from J. 0.
McLeod, superintendent of the railway
mail service, stating that the subject
of the mail service was receiving the
attention of   the department.
A letter was read from Geo. McL.
Brown setting forth that the question
of cheap through rates to the ��nst
would have to be made a subject of
communication with the other transcontinental lines.
Tho Beoretary stated that he understood cut rates were being given from
Oranbrook on the Crow's Nest line.
A member suggested that Mr. Brown
should be telegraphed to, saying that
they wanted the rates reduced for
Christinas.
A communication was received fiom
the Loudon Chamber of Commerce
stating that they were making arrangements for a fourth congress to be
held about June next, nnilj asking tne
cn-operation of the Nelson board, also
outlining a variety of subjects to be
discussed at the conference.
A copy of the resolution adopted at
the joint meetings of the school hoard
und City Council (a report of which
will be found in another column) was
received from Or. Arthur.
The chairman said he considered the
subject most important, There was
no doubt that Nelson would be doclar-
el a separate school district, and it
was very desirable that it should also
have a high school. The City Council
had taken,the matter up and the Board
of Trade would doubtlesB lend their
influence to so commendable a cause.
After considerable favorable discussion a resolution was adopted endors
iug the sentiments of the School
Hour s and City Council calling npon
tho Government to deed block 49 for
high school purposes and vote "a sum
ot $10,000 or more" fur the building.
The question of the City wharf was
next taken up.
Mr. Chapman explained that there
win a meeting of shippers a few nights
ago, nt wbioh the subject of wharf ao-
commodiuiou was discussed. It was
then decided to enlist the support of
tho Board of Trade in getting tbe Ciiy
Council to take immediate action and
have the wharf put in proper repair.
It was further the opinion of the meeting in question that warehouse facilities should be provided on the wharf
without cost to shippers Mr. Chapman explained that competition was so
keen at present that Nelson merchants
could not afford any extra taxation in
tho way of wharfage dues. There
was a good deal of shipping done from
Nelson, and if the City was to maintain its position as a distributing and
trading point, every fair facility should
hi afforded its shippers. At present,
owing lo imperfect wbaif facilities,
goods were frequently sout down to the
boars which could not be put on board
in time. Winn they wanted wns good
wharfage accommodation, ami this
without extra cost.
The chairman explained that the
Citv Oonneil w.is anxious to raise $5,-
OOOto improve the wharf, but owing
lo the fact that the proposition was
mude at a suecial meeting, it could
not have been submitted to the rate-
pnyers at the same tune as tho recent
by'-laws. He thought #5,000 would be
ample to put the whaif in a satisfactory condition
Aid. Hillver differed in opinion as
to cost. He believed it would take
from $10,000 to $le,000 to do the work
satisfactorily. The wharf shonld be
raised about six feet at tlio City end.
and probably SO feet outside.
After a good deal of discussion a resolution wns niiuiiimonslv passed o II-
ing upon the City Council lo put the
wharf in proper shape, establish n warehouse on it, and this without any
charge to shippers

TROUBLE OVER THREE LETTERS
A gnllaut reservist serving in South
Africa, who was present at the looting of a Boer camp, wrote home to a
friend. It was a hurried letter, and
ought to have been accepted witb all
reserve, hut the friend's wife who has
no good opinion of any mau, told the
soldier's wife of it, and now there will
be trouble. The following is an extract from the letter:
' We stormed the heights ou which
the beggars thonght they could stick
like glue, and didn't we givo then
what for when we got among them.
We lost u lot of men bnt paid the hill
as soon hs we had the chnucc. There
wero all sorts of things a Boer travels
with in the camp, and we were allowed to loot it. I collared u lovely black
for my wife, very good aud warn,. "
The poor fellow had ouly left out the
word rug after black, and is in bliss-
full ignorance of what ho has done.
But Mrs. Soldier says if ho brings the
nasty black woman home, she will
sorntch her eyes out.

Uomuieroial Metropolis of tlie Kootenays
to Be the Site if the Government
Will Do the Right Thicg.
An important meeting was yesterday afternoon held in tho office of Dr.
E. C. Arthur, the result of which will
probably be to havo Nelson declared
a separate school district, and to secure
for the inland metropolis a high school,
whose educational facilities will be
available for the Kootenays generally.
There is, perhaps, no one town or city
in the Kootenays that can produce the
requisite number of eligiblo pupils to
entitle it to tho high school grant.
Yet that so populous and important a
section of the Province should be without a high school is generally conceded
to bo a serious reflection upon the educational department. Nelson, geographically situated as the city is, is
more available than any other place in
the Kootenays, nnd would be conveniently accessible for pupils from all
quarters, The school population of
Kootenay entitles it to a high school,
and the only matter to be decided is
as to what, quarter possesses the greater advantages. On this point there
can be no second opinion, so that it
ought to be a foregone conclusion that
the establishment will be located hero.
Yesterday's meeting was attended
by Dr. Arthur and Mr. Cieo Johnstone
representing the Board of School
Trustees, Aldermen Hillyer, Beer and
Fletcher, on tho part of the City
Council, and Messrs. E. A. Crease and
Williams as the representatives of tbe
Hume Addition.
Dr. Arthur was moved to the chair,
and Mr, Johnstone was elected seoie-
tary.
The subject matter was very fully
discussed, the prevailing opiuion being
that Nelson should bo made a separate
school district and that a high school
should He established here, available
lor all qualified pupils from the Koole-
iin}s. A resolution was unanimously
adopted calling upon the Board of
Trade and City Council to petition the
Government to deed Block 41) for high
sohool purposes and vote a sum of $10, ���
000 to carry out the project, the city
undertaking to support the high school
until such lime as a sufficient number of pupils are available to secure
the Government grant provided for by
the Publio School Act.
It was further decided to communicate with the several school boards
throughout the Kootenays asking their
cooperation in tho matter, and an
early reply.

Rossland, Doo. 8. ���The meeting of
the Mining Associations of Slooan,
Boundary, Nelson and Rossland, bi Id
last evening at rhe office of MeBsrs.
Daly and Hamilton was largely lit.
tended, over $80,000,000 capital actually invested, being -representor!, The
meeting was entirely a political one,
the Associations feeling that the action ol the Liberal -Conservative Convention at New Westuunster, had necessitated au expression from tlie Associations of the opinions hold by
then). After a long discussion it was
resolved,
"i'hat the drawing of parly lines in
Provinoial politics be strongly deprecated, and in view of the action
taken by tho Liberal-Oonsarvatives
that a British Columbia party be form-
ad whoso aim shall be the development of the resources of the Province." It was decided to t;tl;e im-
nie.liate steps for the organization of
snch a party, and preliminary thereto
the cooperation of all tho present mem-
l.ers of the opposition will be seonr-
e.l.. It was suggested that Mr. H. D.
Helnicken, y. C., at present M. P. V.
for Victuria, be olioson aa leader of the
new parly, but this will be finally decided upon only after consultation with
other centres. It^was pointed out that
the interests of the mining communities can only be advanced by a natural
alliance of the Vanaouver Island representatives and those from the Kootenay districts, and the meeting pledged
itself to effect this. A strong central
executive committee was elected to
carry the objects of tho meeting to a
success fu! conclusion,

San Francisco, Den, II.���It is generally believed (hat Waiter Rosser,
who shot, and mortally wounded Fied-
erick S. Slater on Saturday night, in
Madison Square Garden, is tha same
person who without cause killed Henry
Hildehrand one vear ago last September in tho Spreokels Market in this
city,    At his trial   be pleaded temper
sand dollars in money and although
offloers set at work immediately and
secrecy has heen maintained not a

is a small force of men in the oflice
at night to handle express of incoming

habit of looking th< offloe, This was
dono last nitiiit as usual and when tbe
expressmen returned 90 minutes lat6r
tbo north door or city entrance was
open, as was also the safe door. The
discovery was made that all of the
money contained in tho sufe was missing.
Ollicials of the express company refuse to slate the amount of money
taken, wbioh is reported to be between $5,000 and $35 000, It is reported tbat tbe safe contained a large
shipment of gold which was to have
gone to one of the bunks in centra]
Wyoming over ihe Cheyone _ Northern this morning hut ollicials will say
nothing about the matter. Indications
point to the faot, however, that tbe
loss is considerable, The entire express office force is under surveillance
and the robbery is being thoroughly

First-Class Line of
WOMEN WAGE EARNERS.
A   Menace   to    the   Future    of   the
Nation.
St. Paul, Dee. 11.-Rev. Dr. S. G.
Smith, pastor of the People's Church
iu this city, whose recent statements
in regard to the women wage earners
and their interferenece with men
workers have attracted wide attention
and criticism, tonight replied to his
critics in a sermon, Dr. Smith said in
part:
"It was in savage times that woman
was the slave and served hor master in
menial tasks. We are on tho road to
a new savagery. The problem began
when the discovery of machinery and
tho factory system took the place of
tho mau and tool. Greedy employers
bade the delicate lingers of woman and
the dimpled band of childhood to grasp
the fallen task. Economic conditions
have no chivalry and human'avarice
hns no sense of honor. The majority
of working women in this country,
four millions of them, aro between the
ages of 11 and 2.1. The grave fact of
the last decade, however, is the enormous increase among the numbir of
girls under 111 years of age.
"We me devouring tbe possible
strength of the nation by draining the
life of its future mothers. Forty-five
per ceut of the manufacturing iu the
United States is   now done by women.
"Make our women beasts of burden
and the doom of our strenath is at
band. No army is any more vigorous
than the mothers who bore them.
The tendency of the times for enormous increase of woman labor and of
immature young woman, is the economic, social, moral and physical evil
of our time and it is the most serious
menaoe to the nation's life."
