LQCAL   MEN  PREFERRED.
Al tho Bosun mine there are already
27 tnen employed, nearly all of whom
ure local minera from New Denver and
Bilverton. Thus tlie Bosun management
is securing the rr"ara of our miners,
while other managers who are giving
preference to outside men, in the face o.
their declaration to j_rive local miners
a chance, are taking on strangers ti cy
know iM.itl.in__ about.
NO TuOUBLE TO GET MINERS.
Tho Wakefield Mir.es aro now employing ahout 80 men and is adding to its
force daily. Contrary to their expectation none of our mines nre having any
trou' In iu picking up a full crew oi
miners and as yit many of our heal
miners arc out of Motif, 6o that there ia
no excuse fur any ol opr mines heiug
short handed. Thu only exception isthe
Enterprise mino on Ten Mile, who keep
aiuni.eron the boat tu -i of the time
looking for scabs, and r.s no union men
need apply they aie having difficulty in
golfing miners. The Enterprise is to-day
a good mine fallen into poor hands ami
with the scrubbiest ae» of miners ever
gatheied together in tbe Sloean, but the
suckers in England are paying for It and
can afford ij loan money to gratify petty
spite against tho unions. We suppose it
ia ull right.
A  GOOD ASSAY.

Someone suid thnt nun fir .t works f.n
bread, then lor butter on liis broad und
will exhauat himself lo get sugar on lhe

the remark ; at least as far us minera are
concerned, 'ihey want the best when
ii,cy have tlie price. Tbey i re not exacting so far aa ll iwers und perfumes go.
They are not aesthetic in their t.i-i. s
and inclinations, but they want goo<l
clothing, mood board, nood ui.ignz'iies
and books and good, comfortable homes
or lodgings. Thev can rough it when
necessary, take iheir bacon and beans pp.
iheir every-dav diet, sleep where night
overtakes thero and never whimper,
growl or grumble at their fare. Thev
are miners and take life ns tl.ey find it,
not as they would wish it to ho. Of
course, tbey enjoy their bread, will take
butter on it if they can net it and will
have the sugar if it do-m't cast too much.
But a miner's life, and his cus'om and
habila do not had hiui in thn direction
of aesiheticism. Ho is a gentleman but

THE NEW SLOCAN RIDING.
The Hewett mino la working along
steadily giving employment to ten men
and ore is being tacked daily.
On Red Mountain work is bejng
pushed on the Rockland tunnel that is
being driven to cut tho big ore shute on
that property.
Tuesday iho Wakefield concentrator
was started up for the first time and it is
expected to run continuously from now
on; in eou-eqnenco it is ofl with the
redlish crop this season.
A party of mining men were here on
Monday, making nn examination of the
Noonday mine, in view of securing the
controlling interest jn ihe Noonday-
Curley stock. The party consisted of
Messrs. J. Elliott and H. G. Neelands of
Nelson, L E. Mernfleld, Toronto, and
Fred. Barrett, Brum lord.
On tho Adela claim near town the
Noonday ledgo has been discovert d,
thus completing ihe chain of claims
having this ledge, from the lake to the
Noonday property. There oie four of
these claims, the Queen Fraction", ou
the lake shore, Adela, Freddy aud
Noonday, nil of which ure now at work
on the same ledge. These properties
would make a fine tunnel proposition, if
combined, as a tunnel could be driven
directly on the vein through nil of these
claims and over 1000 feet io depth could
lie gained.

Emily Edith Group of iniues, arrived

IS AFTER CRONJE
Kelly-Kenny Captures His Supplies
and Bombard*! His Gamp.
London, Feb. 17.—With Gener-
eral Cronje in full retreat and General Kelly-Kenny harassing his
rear, hopes run high that a decisive action will occur, if it has
not already been fought. The dispatches from Jacobsdal confirm
this belief, saying General Cronje
has been oblidged to"outspan," in
other words, form a laager or
camp, in order to rest his oxen.
This explains General Kellv-Kenny's
latest dispatch referring to shelling
the laager, which also brought the
long-expected word of General
Kitchener's whereabouts. The
general who relentlessly pursued
the Khalifa to his doom is supervising the pursuit of General Cronje.
General Tucker, with the seventh
division, is able to effect the projected junction with the forces of
General Kelly-Kenny, while the
ninth diyision under General Colville is rapidly coming up from the
rear. Thus the hero of Khartoum
should have a sufficient force to decisively engage General Cronje and
prevent him from reaching Bloemfontein with an effective force.
Cronje In Full Flight.
Jacobsdal, Feb. 16 via Modder
River.—General Cronje, with 10,-
000 men, is in full retreat towards
Bloemfontein. General Kelly-Kenny is fighting the rear guard and
harrassing the retreat.
The Boers are' reported to be
leaving Spyfontein, going northwesterly direction.
The Boers captured a large convoy as a result of yesterday's fighting at Riet River. The British
casualties were comparatively slight
in view of the tremendous bombardment. Less than thirty men were
wounded and but one killed.
Bnthn*la*ni al Kimberly.
General French's division was enthusiastically welcomed at Kimberly. The officers dined at the club
last evening. The news of the entry into Kimberly has greatly-
cheered the troops and they are
working splendidly.
Ureal Capture ofNuppllc*.
London, Feb. 17.—Following is
the test of Lord Robert,s dispatch.
Jacobsdal Feb. 17.—General
Kelly-Kenny's bi igade captured
yesterday seventyjeight wagons
laden with stores, two wagons of
Mauser rifles, eight boxes of shelN,
ten barrels of explosive, and a
large quantity of stores, all belonging to Cronje's laager, which was
being shelled by our artillery when
Kitchener dispatched his messenger."
Jacobsdal, Feb. 16.—General
Cronje is in full retreat with Kelly
Kenny harrassing him.
Invading the Free State.
London, Feb. 17.—The Chronicle, in a second edition this morning, has the following dispatch
from Watervaal drift, Friday, Feb.
16, morning:
"Lord Roberts, with the sixth and
seventh divisions and the cavalry
division, is marching toward the
Free State. The sixth division
crossed the Riet river and Watervaal drift and marched along the
right bank. The Boers showed
fight and we had several casualties.
The cavalry captund Brown's drift
on the lett flank of the Boers' main
position. Both columns are now
marching north,   parallel with each
ther.    The British  captured many
prisoners but theii casualties were
slight.
The Enemy   Driven From jaeob*dal
The Chronicle also has the following dispatch from Wcgcdlics,
undated, via Modder river, Feb,
16, morning.
"Gen. Kelly-Kenny, with the
sixth division, has entered Jacobsdal. The Boers made a feeble attempt to hold the eastern ridges,
but were outflanked by the mounted
infantry and retired. There were
few British casualties. The division then evacuated Jacobsdal,
marching north in the track of
French's cavalry, which crossed the
Modder river and engaged the
enemy, who retired with heavy
losses.
Drove the Boers Before Them.
"The seventh division crossed the
Riet river east ot Koffyfontein and
drove the enemy before them. Gen.
Tucker is now on Gen. Kelly-
Kenny's right and probably will
effect a junction with his force.
The enemy is retiring north. The
ninth division, under Gen. Golville,
is in the rear of the sixth divisiou.
The enemy so far has made no determined stand.
"We have captured thousands of
stock."
Boera Attach Molteno.
London, Feb. 17.-2:37 p. m.—-
A special dispatch from Sterkstroom
dated today, says the Boers, with
artillery, commenced an attack this
morning on Molteno, near that
place, occupied by troops commanded by General Gatacre.
French Promptly Rewarded.
London, Feb , 17.—The queen
has promoted General French to be
a major-general. General French
heretofore had only ranked as a colonel in the army, with the local
rank of lieutenant-general. Lieutenant-colonel Kekewich has been
prompted to colonel for services in
the defence of Kimberly.

AFTER THE BOERS
Buller Captures Monte  Cristo and
Drives them Over the Tugela.
London, Fe*.   19.— 3:3" p. m.—
The war office has received the fol-
HURRAH FOR    FRENCH!
At last a bright light has shone
through the South African gloom,
and it has come from French, the
Canadian general who gained his
vigor, readiness of resource and
quickness of execution in the northwest. Roberts, the man who made
the bold, swift dash to the relief of
Candahar, doubtless planned the
equally bold, swift dash to the relief ot Kimberly and he chose the
right man to execute it. To Roberts is due the credit for the conception; to French the credit tor the
brilliant carrying into effect of that
conception.
At last the Boers have found their
match; at last they can no longer
wait for the British to attack them
on their chosen fighting ground, but
find the British pouncing upon them
unawares. At last the Brtiish
forces have acquired that mobility
which the Boers have hitherto used
with such bewildering success. The
genius of Kitchener for organization alone could have brought about
this change.
For months the British forces
under French, Gatacre and'Methuen
have been glued to the vicinity of
Colesberg, Stormberg aud Magers-
fontein, trying to smoke and blast
the Boers out of their trenches as a
ferret might pursue a rabbit into
his burrow. They could not drive
out the Boers, nor would the Boers
come out to fight in the open.
Kimberly, with its enfeebled garrison and hosts of sick, lay waiting
wearily for relief, as the daily torrent of shells laid men low and carried devastation through the town.
But no relief came, for the generals
feared to leave a hostile force in
possession • of the country in their
rear.
But Roberts changed all this.
With fresh forces and new ideas,
he cut loose from Stormbtrg, Colesberg and Rensburg, leaving the
Boers to hold them if they chose.
He dashed through the heart of the
enemy's country, went wide of
Cronje's lines at Magersfontein
while the latter was occupied in
watching Methuen, and then sent
French, with a flying column, off to
Kimberly. The Boers were caught
unawares all along the line. They
had no time to fortify the drifts of
the Riet and Modder rivers before
the cavalry were upon them, capturing camps, cattle, everything
Right to the very city of diamonds
tbe triumphant advance continued
and again the Boers seem to hav
been taken by surprise, for their
depots, supplies and amunition were
captured. Then the long leaguer
of Kimberly was raised and a hurrah went up from every British
heart the world over.
Hurrah for Frcnchl Hurrah for

finished to the 900-foot level in two
months, that being the deepest
working from the old shaft. The
upraise from the 350-foot level is
now at the Black Bear tunnel level,
from which it will be continued to
jhe surface, When this shaft is
completed, all ore and waste will be
hoisted through it and the men will
go to and from work through it.
The foundation for the compressor
is finished and is now awaiting the
arrival of the machinery which is
understood to have been shipped by
by this time. The development
work of extending the levels is
proceeding as usual, the intention
being to fully develop the vein to
the limits of the property, 3000 feet
along the vein. Contracts have
been let for 3000 to 4000 feet of
diamond drill work, by which it is

A We»fnilu*ter Soldier Blaring
Victoria, B. C. Feb. 19.—Private
Corbould, one of the Westminster
men with the Canadian contingent,
is missing. He fell out of column,
together with several other Canadians on the march to Jacobsdal
and has not since returned. The
news is contained in a special wire
from Ottawa, being a copy of a
dispatch from Col. Otter.
WHAT THE MILITIA NEEDS.
The Vancouver Ne#s Advertiser
expresses the hope that meetings
like those recently held in the
British Columbia cities will make
the government understand the
feelings of the people in regard to
imperial defense aad continues:
"Militiamen will be delighted to
see civilians take such a united
stand, as it means that public attention will be directed to the
short-comings of the Militia Department,and to the unprepared ness
of the Canadian military units to
take . the field. Canada in spite
of the efforts of successive major-
generals has no 'army' properly
equipped. When the second contingent was being organized it was
found that there were not sufficient
saddles in store to equip a paltry
700 men and 500 had to be purchased in the United States to the
humiliation of the Dominion. No
transport wagons were in stores and
a rush order for fourteen was given
and fortunately executed in time.
When the militia battalions go into
camp in the east during thesummer
it is necessary to arrange the dates
so that the tents, blankeU, etc.
can be sent from camp to camp,
as there are not enough in stores
for mobilization in larger bodies.
The committee appointed on Friday
night last should be a permanent
one, in the nature of a defence committee, to bring pressure to bear on
the government to induce that body
to place the home defence force on
a proper footing on the lines laid
down by Major-Gene ml Mutton."

"Chieveley Carrip, Feb. 19.—I
yesterday moved and found the enemy's flank. The Queens, who had
bivouaced on this northern slope of
Cingolo, crossed the Nek and, supported by the rest of the second
brigade under Hillyard, assaulted
and took the southern end of Monte
Christo. The fourth brigade on
the left or western slope and the
Welsh fusiliers, Supported by the
rest of the sixth brigade, assaulted
the western flank of enemyV position, while the second brigade of
cavalry Oil the extreme right
watched the eastern slopes of Monte
Christo and drove back those of the
enemy who attempted to escape
there from the artillery fire.
"Assaulted by heavy artillery fire
on their front and flank, and attacked on their flank and rear, the
enemy made but slight resistance
and abandoned their strong positions, and were driven across the
Tugela.
"I have taken several camps, a
wagon load Of ammunition, several
wagons of stores and supplies, and
prisoners.
"The weather Was intensely hot
and the ground traversed was exceedingly difficult, but the energetic
dash of the troops has been very
pleasant to see. They have done
splendidly. The work of the irregular cavalry, the Queens, the Scots,
the Fusiliers and the rifle brigade
was perhaps the most notable,while
the excellent practice of the artillery
and naval guns and gunners at all
times very accurate fire was remarkable. The accurate fire of the
naval guns from Chieveley was of
great assistance. Our casualties
are not, I think, many."
BombArdlng Hlawana Bill.

Jdethuen Coea to Kimberly
London, Feb. ao.—The war office has issued a dispatch from Lord
Roberts, the main importance of
which is the fact that it is dated
Paadeberg, 7:30 p. m., Monday.
Paadeberg is 30 miles east of
Jacobsdal. The dispatch announces
that the railroad to Kimberly is
open and that General Methuen will
proceed there with reinforcements
forthwith, and that large supplies
will be forwarded to the town.

An Ottawa dispatch to the Toronto World says:
One of the indications of the

party is that ex-Governor Mackintosh has responded to the call of
Sir Charles Tupper and will run

ex-Governor lives, is the constituency he proposes to contest, and
it is already conceded that he will

Ureal Tax un Horace
London, Feb. 20.—The Standard's correspondent at Modder
river under date of Sunday, February 18, wires as follows:
"The magnificent successes of
the plan of campaign of Lord Roberts must be ascribed in great part,
after full credit has been given for
careful and brilliant strategy, to the
extreme mobility of the newly organized forces employed; but this
mobility has to be paid for. It involves a great expenditure in
horses. Those of the Boers, for instance, are nearly finished. If we
are to retain our advantage, there
must be an unstinted drawing upon
every possible source of supply
throughout the empire. Otherwise
we shall soon be without sufficient
horses of the suitable kind to furnish the necessary remounts. The
infantry under Lord Roberts have
done some marvellous marching,
mostly at night. Their pluck and
endurance have gone very far toward ensuring the safety and success of the cavalry operations."        ,
How ih.. Boer flank «n« Turned.
Ne*' York, Feb. 22.—Winston
Churchill sends from Chieveley
camp a long dispatch which is
printed in the World and in which
he says: "Thc late success should
not induce the government to relax its military preparations. The
first object before everyone is to
bring this horrible war to an end,
and the shortest way is to pour a
continuous stream of men and guns
and supplies into the Cape. Meanwhile there are many encouraging
signs that the Boers are weakening.
The sky already brightens with
promise of victory and   peace.
"Our losses in the fight for Hussar Hill were about fifty. All the
fighting was conducted at long
rifle range. At last, for the first
time during these operations, we
had found the Boer flank and had
placed a strong force at right angles to his rfiain position. The
fruits of this were plucked on the
18th (Sunday) when General Hild-
yard began an attack across the
Nek on Mo.ite Cristo. The guns
and the other brigades assisted,
The Boers commenced a rearguard
action, which degenerated rapidly
into flight. The whole line of
abandoned trenches, two miles long,
were captured wilh a loss to the
assaulting brigade of three men.
The Boers then fled across the
river at great speed with disorder, but bravely covered their artillery. The British loss was comparatively small, chiefly in General
Hildyard's brigade, which gallantly
stormed the key of the position.
"fhe Boer fl.ink has been completely turned, strong defensive positions have been captured, and
valuable positions for future ad-
vanee secured. The Boers have
been put to fligh t tor the first time
in Natal since Klandslaa gte. British soldiers slept last night in Boer
tents on top of thc captured hills,
from which they can see right into
Ladysmith. All ranks are encouraged and now perhaps, with God's
help,*we shall succeed."
Paanlebeig Drift, Feb. SI.—
General Kelly-Kenny, in his pursuit of (ieneral Cronje, caught his
rear guard at Klip drift and foi-
lowed the burghers to the Boers'
laager at Koodoosrund. The drift
action began at daybreak, the
mounted infantry driving the Boer
rear guard up the river towards the
main body, while another body of
mounted infantry manouevered on
the right front and flank of the
Boers. The British main body advanced to outflank the Boers'
laager on the north bank of the
river,
The first consequence ef this
change, so far as the public is concerned, will be a great reduction in
both freight and passenger tariffs.
The construction department has
charged an arbitrary tariff, not
being in a position to regularly
handle busii.ess. The regular tariffs
of the C. P. R. system will now be
extended to the new line, and
through rates will be made fiom all
points. This will mean a reduction
of about 50% in freight rates and
from 8 cents to 5 cents a mile in
passenger rates.
The road has nowcaught up with
the arrears of traffic which accumulated when it was first put in operation, and all business is now going
through ih good shape. The Rossland merchants are building up a
good jobbing business in the Boundary country under the improved
conditions.

o'clock, while removing the laager
near Scholtznek, we were attacked
by the British. The fight lasted until 7:30 in the evening. Although,
on the whole, the British were

British must have been considerable.
Thus far the Boers' loss has been

Lorenzo Marquez, Feb. 20.—An
official report received from Colonel
Baden-Powell, of the occurrences in
Mafeking up to February 3rd, concludes as follows:
"General Snyman, in reply to a
letter complaining of the deliberate
shelling of the women's and children's laager, offered no excuse or
apology and, by a transparent falsehood, admitted that- he ordered the
shelling. I have told him that I
have now established premises for
prisoners in the women's laager and
hospital."

Who Bought Hawkealey Letter*.
London, Feb. 21.—The St. James
Gazette says this afternoon that the
stolen Hawkesley letters, which
Mr. Chamberlain referred to yesterday evening, in the house of commons as having beep sold to Dr.
Leyds for £100, "were purchased
from the thief, tor what sum we do
not know, by no less a personage
than Dr. Clarke." The St. James
Gazette then says it presumes Dr.
Clarke transferred the letters to Dr.
Leyds. Brown Clarke, Radical, is
a member of parliament from Caithness. He was consul general of
the South African republic prior to
1891.
Boera Foiled at Arundel.

mineral Output ol' B.C. In 1000.
B. C. Review.
A rough estimate  of output   for
the year 1900 would place the   output from lode  mines  at  something
like the following figures:
Rossland $6,000,000
Nelson   2,000,000
Slocan   2,000,000
Boundary   2,000,000
Other districts    1,500,000
$13,500,000
This estimate is subject to two
possible modifying factors, first the
continuance or settlement of the
labor troubles, which are affecting
the Slocan, East Kootenay and
Nelson districts, and second the
possibility of much larger returns
from the Boundary and other districts. Quartz milling is making
such strides in B' C. that it is impossible to forecast what a year
may or may not bring forth in this
connection.

London, Feb. 21.—At a meeting
of the town council this morning, it
was announced that news had
reached Windsor castle that Ladysmith had been relieved. The announcement was received with immense enthusiasm and shouts of
"Bravo Buller."
Paris, Feb. 21.—The London
correspondent of the Debats telegraphs that a dispatch has been received at Windsor announcing that
Ladysmith has been relieved.
London, Feb. at,—The rumor of
the relief of Ladysmith has been
current on the Berlin and London
bourses. Though it is quite possible the report is true, there is no
news corroborative of the rumor.
(Government Han No New*.
London, Feb. 21.—The president
of the board of trade, Right. Hon.
C. T. Ritchie, of the cabinet, announced in the house of commons
at 6 o'clock this evening that the
government had ao news of the relief of Ladysmith.
Acro*a the Tugela Again.
London, Feb. 21—4:27 p. m.—
The war office has received the following from Gen. Buller:
"Chieveley Camp, Feb. 21.—The
fifth division crossed the Tugela
river today by pontoons."
Churchill |« Hopeful.
New York, Feb. at,—Winston
Churchill's account of General
Buller's tourth attempt to reach
Ladysmith is printed in the Woild.
Mr. Churchill says:
"At last we have got on their
flank and, although fierce fighting
lies before us, it will give us considerable strategical advantage
and the relief of I. ivdsiiiitli looks a
great deal more hopeful."
London, Feb. 21.—The war office declares it is unable to substantiate the reports of the relief of
Ladysmith. Official confirmation is
eagerly twaited, especially as General Buller's dispatch of yesterday
is very generally regarded as foreshadowing a juncture of his and
General White's forces some time
today. Puhlic interest, expectation
and anxiety therefore sway unceasingly between Ladysmith and
Blomfontein. The practical relief
of the former place is regarded as
due more to Field Marshal Roberts
brilliant strategy in drawing off the
Boers than to General Buller s numerous asaults, and news of the result of the battle between General
Kitchener and General Cronje, reinforced by the forces thus drawn
off from Ladysmith, is expected to
almost synchronize with the announcement that General Buller has
reached his objective point. The
war office announced this afternoon
that it had no news from either
force. There is yet nothing to
throw light on the main issues.
Pluoier -fleet* a Repulse.
Further details of the attack made
by Colonel Plumer's forces on the
Boer position defended by a 12-
pounder near Crocodile pools, not
far from Gaberones, show that as
the British were struggling up the
hill in the dark through a net of
barbed wire, they alarmed the Boer
watchdogs, who gave tongue. The
Boers opened lire and the British
charged, but the Boers exploded
dynamite mines, doing much damage.    The British retreated.

Brother Lowery ot the Ledgo complains that nvery little town in B. U.
thinks it should have a newspaper,
and puts down his lack of patronage
to this. That's where ho gets off
wrong. The real trouble is that some
newspaper men cannot keep sober long
enough to realize that a dead little
town can't support them. Now, brother, if you don't like your place, throw
your feet out, move to some other locality and hoodoo it for a while. What
you need is brain food with a water
diet, a change of air and sense enough
to know that the Slocan will not give
you support unless you get out and
earn it.

The Redistribution Bill just brought
down by Premier Semlin, whether it
passes or not, is a just recognition of
tbe importance of the Slocan, a recognition which its voting strength and
population justifies. The Bill, whicli
may or may not be one of expediency,
is baped upon the principle of representation by population, which, altho
it may leave out some Opposition members and wiil assuredly add to the
Government ranks, is what representative government is popularly supposed to be. It would be hard to oppose this as a gerrymander while attempting to Uphold the last move
made in the way of a redistribution of
the constituencies.
The anomaly of 28fi votes in West
Lillooet or 342 in East Llllooet equaling over 900 Slocan votes will be done
away with. Esquimau's 714 voters
will no longer have twice the representation in the House that the Slocan-
Knslo Riding had.
The number of voters in what ia
at present Mr. Green's constituency
has steadily increased since the last
election, there being now about 600
in each of the two Ridings being
formed out of it.
In any event, voters are assured of
an early opportunity of exuressing
themselves at the polls. The Victoria
Times, the official Government organ,
in speaking of the Bill says: "We believe that it is no secret that the members on the Government side of .the
j House are weary of tbe present coudi-
