At the meeting  of the  Liberal-  Conservative Association  on   Wednesday    evening   a   telegram   was  handed to the  Rev.   Mr.   Stephen-  soul    Being    war   news    business  was  suspended   and  the  reverend  gentleman requested to  read  aloud  the  contents, which   proved  to   be  an account of the action at Sunny-  side, in which   the  Canadians  ar.d  ���Australians routed  the  Boers  and  "captured their trenches.    Great enthusiasm  ensued and three rousing  cheers given for our brave boys ar.ci  three   more  for1 the   Antipodeans.  "F'or they are jolly good  fellows,"  given with a vim,   closed  the'joyous episode  and .business  was 'resumed.      ' -  ��� Thomas A. Edison has just completed'an electric machine designed  for the separation of the gold- from  the ruby and black sand as fourd  on the Cape Nome beaches.- Two  sacks of this auriferous sand were  sent to the wizard at Menlo Park,  aud treated by his new machine.  The result was $65 in gold. After  the treatment the sand was submitted to'the usual analysis ar.d not a  ' trace of gold found, thus - proving  - the complete success of the machine.  The cost is said to be very little,  and the ' earnings of ��� the beach  miners using the machine will be  more than quadrupled. By the  present crude method of sluicing  with plate and blankets two-thirds  'of the gold has been' lost hithertu.  All this will be ob\iated by the  new invention and its beneficial ef  fects to the beach miners will be in  calculable.  It is a matter of congratulation  to the residents of the district that  the Postmaster-General has ordered  the transmission of newspapers  to-Atlin and outwards by the mails.  It appears the Hon. Mr. Mulock  had no idea our district was so  closely connected with a railway,  and on the facts of the case being  presented ro him, at o::ce granted  the desired b~o:i. It is not likely  much benefit will be derived from  this change this year. The present  contract with the Canadian Development Company will have to bj  enlarged and preliminaries arranged  for the new older of things  takes time, and as the season is  well on to the three quarters, it is  not likely paper - mail will arrive  before the middle of February.  Tt.would be interesting in this  connection to know who furnished  the department with mail advices  of so derogatory a nature to the  northern portion of British Columbia. , We have post-office inspectors   with    princely   salaries,   and  As there is ho likelihood of there  being  auothei   election   before  another session o." t'ie Doml'.i'.o'i Pai-  liament is held,   arrangements * will  require to be   made   very   soon   for  the issuing of wr.ls .'or a number of  by-elections.    There  are at present  six vacancies iu the Ho use of Commons aud six in   the   Senate.    The  defeat of the -Liberals' in   Manitoba  has 'brought  the   mailer*-horns  to  the Federal government   with   considerable  force    and    ere    another  short   period  passes   overhead   the  writs   will   have  been  issued.     In  the   popular chamber there are four  vacant seats in Quebec, ore in Manitoba and one in Ontario.    In Ontario the  constituency of West On -  tario   became  vacant  through   the  death of Sir James Edgar,, who was  speaker in the present  Parliament.  Winnipeg    was    unrepresented all  last    session,      Mr.   Jameson,   the  member, having died just  previous  to the meeting of Parliament.    The  Hon. A. C. Geoffaon   who   sat  for  Chambly and Vercliers i'.i   Quebec,  Hon. W. B.   Ives who  represented  Sherbrooke, make two vacancies in  Quebec. In ��� addition ' to  these   Dr.  Rinfret, of Lotbiniere,'was appointed to office and   Mr.   P.  Bourassa,  of Labslle, resigned, baciase of-the  sending of the contingent to South  Africa Without calli ^g Parliament to  sanction it.    It is  understood  that  ali the by-election' will  be  held  on  the same day.    In the ^Senate  the  death of Mr. Sutherland and 'Major  Bw'iilton leaves    two  vacancies   for  Manitoba.    In  Ontario  the seat of  the late Senator San ford,  who  was  drowned in Muskoka last summer,  is vaca it,  and  in  the  province  of  Quebec two vacancies were  created  by the death of Senators  Bellerose  and Price.    There is,  as is  always  the, case, a very lively  scramble for  the: positions in the Upper Chamber  and  ir  would not be safe to predict  who  of the   numerous    applicants  will be successful.  It it reported"that a young American woman who will soon be worth  $20,000,000, has agreed to marry a  young English viscount if he will  win the Victoria Cross in South  Africa. The cross and thermillions  are worth winning, but the value of  the . girl who would make such  terms is not up   to  the -average.  .while Lady de .Ramsey, and Lady  Georgin4 Curzon have each, achieved  their owii social success.  ' NEWS OF THE WORLP.  French .statistics of the' past year  show that, the number of deaths  has increased by 59,054, while the  number of births has decreased by  15,174. This is a striking confirmation of Zola's strictures on  the nation, .made in his latest book  Here are' three items "of- interest  from the San Francisco Mining &  Scientific Press: The' "Alaska-  Treadwell mine of Alaska pays dividends amounting to about $1,060  daily. The' Homestake'mine,, of  South Dakota pays $3/500 daily in  divic ends.    Both are low grade.''  An effort is being made by German capitalists to consolidate the  nitrate interests of Chile. ; The mines  are valued $80,000,05x5. The present output is about ,3.000,000 tons  annually'.

Lady Sarah should not have been  in Mafeking at all. Her husband  is Captain Gordon Chesney Wilson  of the Royal Horse guards and was  one of the little band of officers on  the staff of Colonel Baden-Powell  whose corps" of rough riders were  -penned in Mafeking by the Boer  forces under Commandant Cronje.  Lady Sarah followed her husband  to Mafeking much against his  wishes and stayed so long that she  was trapped with the rest. The  Boers gallantly allowed her to ride  through their lines with her maid.  The youngest of the large family of  the seventh Duke of Marlborough  (there were five sons and six daughters).

Mr. Foley freely ex;:rpsses the opinion that Nome  is the centre of the richest mining  region on the earth. He visited  the creek diggings and is satisfied  that they are rich, but is inclined to  think the beach workings will be  the backstay of the country. He  says tlie placer ground of known  or unknown value was all staked.  Most of it, however, was expected  to bs thrown open for relocation, as  it was officially announced' that  the vahdity of only  one  power  of  all those who have remained: have  an opportunity of locating 'one or  more claims, but that'there'.will' be  locations open for main:'' who gc>  this'whiter or early i-nV..th'e.
