Modder River, Dee. 12.—The naval four
aeven-ineh battery again took up a position north of the camp, while the Howitzer battery waa posted to the southeast
on the left of the Boers. Both opened a
hot tire with Lyddite ahella and shrapnel,
to whieh the Boers sharply re-ponded with
a dozen guns, thus unmasking their position, which was tlie object of the Hritish
maneuver. After an hour's fighting th.}
Boer Rims were silenced. Tiie howitzers

New York, Dec. 12.—A special from
Washington says:
Considerable concern has been felt in official circles for some time respecting the
fate of the American prironers atill held
by the Filipino insurgents. Thia is due
tn an intimation made l.y Aguinaldo in a
note to General Otis, delivered a month
ago, that, grave injury might befall the
prisoners if recognition of the so-culled
Filipino republic by the United States
were longer delayed.
lt was in answer to this threat that the
president sent a message to General Otis
for transmission to 'Aguinaldo announcing
that if the prisoners were maltreated iu
any manner he aud his subordinates
would bo held personally responsible. At
thai lime Aguinaldo was hclievcd to be
within the cordon established by the
American troops reat-hing from San Fabian
to Isidro.
Considerable concern has been caused
by the fact thnt although a great many
Spanish prisoners have been allowed to
escape, uot a single American has come
through the lines.

Controversy as to Which Won Santiago Victory Still Unsettle*.
New Vork, Dec. 12.—'A special from
Washington says:
lt is said that the president will soon
send to congress a special message regarding rewards for otlicers and men from the
Atlantic licet who distinguished themselves during the war with Spain and
whose gallantry has not yet been recognized.
President McKinley has the same Snmp-
son-Schley mutter under serious consideration. He is understood to be willing that
a hill should lie passed authorizing the revival of the grade of vice admiral for the
benefit of Rear Admirals Sampson and
Sc'' >y, tne former to be given seniority
of tlie other. It is believed Secretary
I-on;: will join in indorsing this solution
of the controversy.
What will probably canst, considerable
criticism among Rear Admiral {Schley's
friends is the determination of Secretary
lii.ng to name Admiral Simpson in thc
measure    he  is    preparing,    giving    the
thanks of congress to the commander-in-
chief of the north Atlantic squadron and
the ollieeis and men under his r >nii»aiul.
lt is not believed, however, that tho
president, will transmit such a resolution
to eongre-s, knowing what dc.teiminetl op-
Itosition it will meet and the probability
that friends of Schley would have his name
substituted for that t»f Sampson and pass
the resolution in that form.

him lose sight of details and to hug

It was a game between a team which in

The  Best!
Although the Slocan country has
heen comparatively quiet during the
post season, owing to most of our big
mines being closed through labor
troubles, yet a large amount of im- \
provements has been effected around
our various mines. New properties
have been discoyered and opeued up
and all of our mines are in better
shape than before the strike, the
country as a whole having advanced.
Taking it all together the past season
has its bright as well as dark side.
