London, March 7.���The text of Lord  Roberts' dispatch is as follows:  "Osfontein, March 7, 4:20 p. m.���Our  operations today promise to be a great  success.'The enemy occupied a position four miles north and.eleven miles  south of. the Modder river. I sent  General Collies down on the north  bank and General Kelly-Kenny' s and  Tucker's! division with the cavalry on  the south bank. The cavalry division  succeeded in beating the enemy's  flank from the road of the Sixth division, which is 'advancing without  having .been obliged to fire a shot up  to the present time. The enemy are  in full retreat towards the north and  east; They are being closely followed  by the /cavalry,- horse artillery and  mounted infantry,".. while '-';��� Tucker's  Seventh .division, Colonel Villes'  Ninth division arid the Guards'  brigade, tinder Pole Carew. are making their way across the river at Poplar Drift, where I propose to make my  headquarters this evening. Our  casualties will, I trust, be few, as the  enemy were quite unprepared . for  being attacked by the flank' and having  their connection with , Blooriifontein  threatened."  A special: dispatch from Durban  says: : A flying column of British  troops from Zululand has entered the  Transvaal and will : daily skirmish  with all parties of. Boers.

A Large Congregation Fallow tlie Remains to  the Grave.  The funeral of the late Alice Palmer  took place from the family residence  and later from the Episcopal church  yesterday afternoon, Rev. W. A. Robins, M. A., officiating. There was a  large attendance of friends and  acquaintances. The pall bearers were  Charles Dunn, Vibert G. Young-  husband, H. Cannon, William Wart-  man, F. B. Holmes and William Wilson. The service was held in accordance with tne rites of the Church of  England, of which the deceased was a  member. The first part was conducted in Mrs. Foreman's hall, the  building which serves temporarily for  the services of the Church of England  in this city, and where but a few Sundays since she herself was a worshipper in the congregation. The body  was met at the door by the Rev. W. A.  Robins, who read the opening sentences of the burial servicers it passed  up to the center of the room to rest in  front of the altar. Hymn 265,"Thy  Way Not Mine, O Lord," was sung before the Lesson, and No. 264, "My  God, My Father/WhileT Stay" after,  by a large and reverent congregation.  The minister thence preceded the body  to the door,* whence it was taken to the  cemetery, and there in the brilliant  sunshine of an almost spring day the  service was concluded.  FRIENDLY   AMERICANS.  Handsome Donation From Dr. Steward Wett  for Canadian Patriotic Fund.  Mr. Thos. Tait of the C. P. R. has in  his possession a letter that voices the  sentiment of the best element in the  United States towards Britain and  Canada. It was written by Dr Sieward.  Webb, the well known railway magnate, and enclosed therewith was a.  check for $500. Dr. Webb later augmented this hansome donation, by a  further $500. Dr. Webb voices the  the true American feeling when he  says: "My Dear Tait: I enclose you  a check, for $500 for your patriotic fund  from Mrs. Webb and myself. We both,  like very many other Americans, admire the bravery and loyalty of the  ' Canadian troops, and I am sure that  there are very many hearts in the U.  S. tonight that ueat in sympathy for  England and her colonies. Please  give our check to the fund with our  best wishes for English and Canadian  success, and a speedy termination of  the war."  Given Before a Large Audience in Miller's  Hail.  The entertainment given in Miller's  hall Thursday by the ladies of the  Presbyterian church was one of unusual merit and was., enjoyed by a  large audience. The success of the  evening was largely due to the efforts  of Mrs. McKinney, who had charge of.  the children, and did much to arrange  the programme. A piano solo, "Ro-  solla," (Lust) given by Mr. Paul  Kauffman, was excellent. A solo by  Miss Brotherhood was heartily encored.  The operatta by the children, entitled  " Grandpa's Birthday," was very beautiful and reflected credit on their instructor and themselves. The character of Grandpa, taken by Mr. Mundi  on a few hours' noi ice, was admirably  well given.. The second part of the  programme opened with God Save the  Queen. A tableau with songs by Miss  Bessie Evans was very pretty. Al. V.  Uhls rendered " El Troubadore" in  excellent form and responded to an encore- Paul Kauffman delighted the  audience with another piano solo. A  solo, " Answer." was beautifully ren-  dved by Mrs. Traves and encored.  " Dream of the Alps," (Koelling), on  the violin by Mr. Kauffman was muq��;  appreciated and encored by the au^  dience. The Canadian national anthem, " The Maple Leaf," which might  be often er sung at our entertainments,  was well sung by F. H. McKenzie,  the audience joining , in the chorus.  A second tableau "Joan of Arc," with  colored lights, by Miss Thomson,  made a be-tutiful conclusion to the  evening's entertainment. .. It was a  'disappointment to many that Miss  WaC.son was too tin well to sing. Greenwood is; :���-*��� be congratulated  Political Pointers.  . A meeting of the Greenwood Liberal  Association was held in ��� Odd Fellows'  hall last evening, with Vice-President  A. K. Stuart in the chair. A' resolution was passed to the effect that the  association deemed it inadvisable to  hold a district convention for the purpose of nominating a Liberal candidate to contest the constituency at the  approaching^general__electi6n._,_Later!_  on another resolution was passed  stating that in the event of a properly  constituted convention being called  and a candidate nominated, the Greenwood Liberal Association would give  him their support.  A Liberal Association has been  organized at Grand Forks. This association decided to oppose the holding  of a convention for the purpose of  nominating a Liberal candidate. The  Liberals there, like those of Greenwood, prefer to wait for further developments.  Rossland and Nelson Conservatives  have been reasoning together, and it  is stated they are anxious to run the  approaching election on party lines.

Duxcak Ross Editor.  SATURDAY, MARCH 10, 1900.  CONSTITUTIONAL" PRACTICE.  * Attention is drawn by the Victoria  Colonist to the value of the precedent  established last week by the legislature when it protested  against the action   of   the lieutenant-governor   and  declared that it had been  treated with  scant courtesy by his honor,   This is  as it should be.   The legislature has a  right to be jealous of its prerogatives.  If it allows the lieutenant-governor to  assume its functions,  there will soon  be an end to responsible government.  The precedent set by Lord Aberdeen  in his dismissal of the  Tupper government in 1896, has been made by Governor Mclnnes the pretext for  the dismissal of both the Turner and Semlin  governments.     It was  contended; by  constitutional lawyers and writers that  that Lord Aberdeen had overstepped,  the mark and gone beyond the limits  of constitutional practice.   And it is  ext emely probable that in consequence  of the discussion which followed the  dismissal of the Tupper government,  no future governor-general of Canada  well, ever assume to exercise his 'undoubted right of'dismissal7under like  circumstances.     But    Governor    Mclnnes has gone further."; In. the case: of  the Tupper government there was a  clear adverse vote of the electors.  The  then ministry was  certainly  not in a  position to command a majority vote  in the house.   When the Turner government was dismissed this was riot at  all clear, and. when the Semlin government was dismissed, it was promptly  able to pass a resolution declaring that  it had effective control of the house.  We aire pleased to see that the members  of the legislature were so outspoken in  their denunciation   of  the conduct of  the governor.   It is gratifying to observe a determination on the part of  the elected representatives 'to put the  governor in his proper place.    This is  a matter in which party or personal  politics has no place.,   Opposition and  government' members alike are only  doing their duty when they join hands  to prevent any usurpation of authority  by the queen's representative.  of the more enthusiastic have already  selected their leaders and are busy regaling their friends with glowing descriptions of their merits. There are  a few Liberals whose course is, to say  the least, remarkably inconsistent.  They can see no fault in the Ottawa  government; they are even prepared  to defend all the details of departmental work, many of which are proper  subjects for fair criticism ; but these  same Liberals are found supporting  Joe Martin because he is a Liberal.  They could not more effectively show  their disloyalty to the Liberal party.  Joe. Martin is persona non grata  at Ottawa. He has been a  "thorn in the flesh" of the Ottawa  government. He has been treated as  an enemy in the camp. When the  Liberals of Winnipeg were so hopelessly divided that the regular nominee  was forced to retire from the contest,  Joe Martin was there, to feed the fires  of discard. No sooner does he become  the. adviser of the lieutenant-governor  than he announces as one of the main  planks of his platform a fight for  what he is pleased to call provincial  rights against the Laurier government.  Consistency, thou art a jewel! Liberals  so loyal to the Ottawa government  that no fair criticism will be tolerated  are yet Liberals so partisan that they  fall down and worship the arch-enemy  of the Ottawa government because he  calls himself a Liberal.  grand prizes of politics, the career of  Joseph Martin has been a failure.  Judged by its public influence and  by his own personal desire for excitement, the career of Joseph has been a  dazzling success.  G There has not been a dull minute in  Mr. Martin's public life.  The average politician deems it a  great honor to serve in one government for twenty years. In that historic period Joseph Martin has served  in the Greenway and Semlin governments and contributed to the defeat of  the Norquay government, the Tupper  government, the Greenway government, and now the Semlin government.���Toronto Telegram.  THE SIMILKAMEEN.  J. NEA.I,.  J. WATT  EDITORIAL NOTES.  A PEOPLE'S PARTY.  Lord Landsdowne, secretary of war,  sent out some very happy telegraphic  answers to the congratulations of the  mayors of Canadian cities after the  capture of General Cronje. There is a  singular appropriateness in these replies coming from a former governor-  general of the Dominion.  POLITICAL  TRAITORS:  The history of Britain and her  colonies^ furnishes no parallel for the  days of treachery that the British  Columbia politicians , have just gone  through. Since the inception of party  politics, party men have at .least  shown some regard- for the principles  of the party to' which they belonged  and for the rights of their colleagues;  but in Victoria party men were ready  to!acrifice"t_feir" pfiriciples^and-desert  their colleagues for office. Both sides  were equally to blame. Cotton and  Semlin, who for years used every  effort to defeat Tunnerism, to maintain office were ready to take in the  very men they opposed. On the other  hand the deal was still worse. Turner  and his colleagues asserted that the  policy of the Semlin government had  closed our mines, frightened capital,  ruined the credit of the Province and  brought everything to a standstill;  but when an opportunity presents  itself we find Turner and his lieutenants ready to perpetuate the government which they stoutly maintained  brought nothing but ruin.  Martin is sufficiently astute a politician to take advantage of this double  dealing and he rode into office with a  strong denunciation of those sacrificing principle for office. But Joe's professions while out of office and his practices while in office do not harmonize.  Today's dispatches show that he was  ready to hold power by securing support from the Turner faction, and  when this was refused he threw himself on the mercy of the Vancouver  Liberals, who received him with open  arms. Party lines have their faults,  but none like those described. With  party lines, vacillating politicians  could not revel in a saturnalia of  treachery and deceit.  The New Westminister Columbian  has called an emergency convention  of delegates representing the Lower  Fraser constituencies to discuss the  most extraordinary and unprecedented  political crisis. The convention is to  be held next Tuesday at New Westminster. The Columbian is Liberal in  federal politics and was a supporter of  the Semlin government. In giving  its reasons for calling the convention,  the Columbian is not afraid to criti-'  cize the actions of those responsible  for the -present unfortunate political  conditions. It says:  ."And the lieutenant-governor has  prostituted his high position by entrusting with' the task of forming a  new government, an unprincipled and  dangerous politician, Mr. Joseph  Martin, who is now The Government  of : British .Columbia, and who  will shortly appeal to the people  to approve of the governor's choice.  The late session, as stated, has been  productive of only disgraceful scenes���  a veritable political saturnalia. Principles have been bought and sold, cabinet  positions made the subject of barter  and traffic. The sacred position of the  representative of the^ Queen has been  dragged in the dirt and subjected to  obloquy and insult.  Three or four self-seeking and, practically, principleless factions will  struggle for supremacy at the forthcoming election, which will probably  be sprung within six weeks.  If the people are to have1 any effective voice in the next Legislature, a*.  against the politicians, they must take  steps at once to elect a party of their  own, which may hold the balance of  power between the warring factions  arid1 "demaridrand-enforce -respect  the people's wishes and interests.  In arguing an appeal in England a  short time ago, a Mr. Foa, counsel for  the appellant, startled the court by  giving as authority for the proposition  that the word "bedding" includes also  a bedstead, some ��� passages from Chaucer, Shakespeare and Dryden, and a  passage from'Rudyard Kipling'slastest  poem, '* The Absent-Minded Beggar :"  '��� They put their sticks and bedding up  the spout." The court finally decided  that bedding includes a bedstead if it  was part of the sleeping accommodation of the person in question.    -  GEO. AI.DOUS.  J. C.

THOMAS  One of the straightest pointers we  have seen in this whole political business comes from Colonel Gregory of  Victoria, a life-long Liberal, and as  stalwart a worker in the interests of  that party as there is in the Province.  He says in a letter to the Victoria  Times: "Mr. Martin as an independent Liberal has no right to make  this call, and he has'no mandate from  the Liberals of the Province to form  a Liberal administration, and if is  to be sincerely hoped that the  Liberals will not countenance his  action.' I am thoroughly satisfied  that it is not the good of his, country  1hat he has at heart so much as the  desire to gain power, partly to satisfy  his ambition, and partly to whip and  trounce his political opponents. For  my part I distrust him as a leader and  will not support him no , matter what  his policy may be. Policy with him  represents not his real sentiments, but  his view of the best  means to an end.  Hauling and Packing  To Mining Gamps���  A Specialty , . .  Best Accommodation.  Vft  PRINCETON, B.

If the situation were not so serious,  if the outcome of the present political  crisis had not a direct bearing on the  future p_Asperity of the province, th  attitude these- ds'tix  men on both sid  of amusement,  wondering wheth  Wilson, Cotton or  erals are doubtf i  Uom of followin  If the lieutenant-governor does not  learn-some constitutional law even, at  this late date, it will not be because  the   newspapers have not done their  duty.   From one end of the province  to the other, .the press has been outspoken in its arraignment of his honor,  and not content with,merely rapping  him   over   the knuckles for  his outrageous   conduct,   has been at   some  pains to point out to him the reasons  why he has done wrong. The Mclnnes  family would do well to learn the lesson  well.   The two sons  who have such  high   political  ambitions will find it  extremely useful later on in life should  they by any happy chance succeed in  realizing their expectations.   As   for  the Province of British Columbia, we  will now get back to a form of constitutional  government,  and woe   unto  the   governor or   premier   who   shall  hereafter deparj: from the beaten path :  '���The office of lieutenant-governor, '  says  the Colonist, "must be kept out  of politics." This is succinctly stating  the principle for which we have been  contending.   It   is   the   principle   the  breech of which has caused so much  trouble, and we   trust that  the next  governor, whoever   he   may   be,  will  profit  by the   experience which   Mr.  Mclnnes has had. As for Mr. Mclnnes,  when   he   shall  retire, or be retired,  from the gubernatorial chair, he will  be a dead horse politically.   Whate.rti  political .nfluence he may once "nave  ed   to   have, is nov/gone,  and  ever.   No political party can  nize him as a leader or as  Another Town.

This presumably refers to the Paul Myers'  ranch, which was purchased by Mr.  Stewart of Nelson last fall for town-  site purposes.

Presbytery Meetine  At the meeting of the Kootenay  Presbytery at Kaslo, tlie report on  Church Life and Work was presented  by Rev. Robert Frew on Wednesday  evening. It was - accompanied by an  address, delivered in Mr. Frew's own  inimitable style, bubbling over with  humor and containing many practical  and pointed suggestions. Addresses  were also delivered by Rev. J. McCoy  and Rev. Mr.Gandier ;, the former making a strong plea in favor of the homeless.men of our land, the latter referring to the value of the Sabbath as the  foundation of home and the church.  Refreshments were 'then served  by the * ladies, of Kaslo and  a pleasant hour spent by all  Thursday morning attention was  given to the assembly's report concerning "A Manual of Aids to Social Worship," and the Presbytery was almost  unanimous in opposing the manual  suggested, as not fitted to meet the  requirements of the Presbyterian people. The report on statistics and  finances showed a gratifying increase  in both membership and contributions.  After the transaction of further routine  business, hearty votes of thanks were  passed to the minister and people of  Kaslo for their warm-hearted hospitality, and to the .Canadian Pacific railway, Kootenay Navigation and Railway compauy, and Spokane Falls and  Northern railway for their continrffd  kindness to all the ministers and  sionaries of Kootenay.

ALSTON RECOMMENDS DELAY  Until  Necessary   Iratrovements   Are   Made.  "Streets Must Be Graded���A Rough  Estimate of iCost.  The regular meeting of the city  council was held last evening.  The most important matter to be  considered was a report from'Chas. F.  Alston, city engineer, in reference to  sewerage.   Mr. Alston said in part:  "In laying these vjews before you, I  think it right to state that at present  it is not possible to give anything like  an exact estimate for this reason, the  time occupied in making proper and  complete surveys and levelings would  involve a preliminary expenditure,  which naturally it would be be well to  postpone until it is decided to go on  with the work and lay the pipes, When  that time comes, it will be necessary  to take sections of all the streets in the  city except the few that have already  been put down to grade. "  Mr. Alston,' after describing the details of the work necessary in this  connection, says: " I take it as a foregone conclusion that the pipes must be  laid with a view to discharging into  tanks of some sort. There are various  systems of sewage purification, but  without entering into their merits I  will merely say that my rough estimates are based upon the assumption  that one or the other of the systems  will be adopted. * * * It would not  be necessary to hatfe two installations,  one at the north and one at the south  end- of the city, because there is  sufficient fall for the mam sewer to  ��drain the whole area.   *   *   * "  Mr. Alston suggests the lower end of  Anaconda as the most advantageous  point for the works, but in the event  of the limits -of Anaconda not being  included in. the city, he bases his  estimates on location of purification  works at the lower end of Gold street.  He then describes the line of the main  . sewer and suggests-three routes, to the  ��� south' of Deadwood street, the main  sewer north of that running along  Boundary avenue. After describing  the different routes suggested, Mr.  Alston submits the "following rough  estimate of the main sewer from Providence street to block Q, Garland's addition, 4,300 feet; diameter of pipe 30  inches; .estimated cost of digging  trenches, $8,000; estimated cost of  pipe not given, as full details regarding  prices are not to hand. For street  sewers 20,000 foot of glazed earthenware of various diameters will be required, the digging of trenches,  roughly estimated, for these would  cost $6,000.  Mr. Alston continues : " Without a  system of water supply extending to  cover every house that is to be served;  by a sewage system, the system would  be useless, as the pipes would- not be  of any service," and suggests postponement until the water question is  settled, and advises making improvements in the following order: "A  water scheme for supplying the whole  city; T(2) Boundary avenue brought  down to grade at points mentioned in  block 97, and (3) afterwards the sewage  might be extensively dealt with."   >  Mr. Alston closes by referring 1o  capacity of Lind creek. He examined  - -the creeH but. delayed actual, measure  ment on account of the severity of the  weather, but he has put in a measuring  flume and will be in ,a position in a  few days to state what quantity the  creek will afford.  ' The report was referred to a committee to consult with the engineer.  City Assessor Hallett presented the  assessment roll for 19007 It shows the  value of real estate at $967,020 and  improvements at $339,188, making a  total of $1,307,208.  Rendell & Co.'s ". bill for removing  earth off alleyway was ordered paid.  Jack Mitchell was appointed driver  of the team recently purchased for the  fire department.  A largely signed petition was presented from business men against the  - low-licenses paid by hawkers/peddlers  _  and auctioneers.

A crosscut has been run on the left side of  this tunnel which shows the ledge to  be 46 feet in width in that direction.  A winze has been sunk near the face  of the tunnel for a depth of 65 feet  down to the second level, which is  about 130 feet long. The depth at the  face of this level is about 200 feet and  the ore is richer than that of the upper  level, although the vein is not quite so  wide. At the bottom of the winze  they have a ten-foot sump, but the  water can still be handled by windlass  and buckets. The winze is four by  eight in the clear and carefully timbered with double compartments and  is to be used as a working shaft. It  was sunk at first more as a prospect  to determine the extent of the ore  vein.  ' Two shifts are working regularly,  and they have just completed sacking  about five and one-half tons of ore,  part of which is now at Midway, B. C.  This ore is to be shipped to different  mills ro determine the cheapest and  best process of treating it.  The mine is fortunate in having a  natural dump. There is at least 1000  tons of ore on this dump which will  average $19.42.  No survey has yet been made, but a  tough estimate places the ore in sight  in the mine at about 50,000 tons.  A mill will be erected on the hill  near the boarding house and a tram  can carry the ore' from the mine to the  mill without any otherhandling except  the loading, which will be a great saying of time and labor.  The Review is about a mile and a  quarter from. Chesaw and only three-  quarters , of a mile from Bolster. It  was located in 1867 by Robert Allison,  but to Mr-McEntire belongs the credit  of having made a mine of it.  The company was incorporated for  1,500,000 shares of a par value of $1,  with 500,000 shares .in the treasury.  The chief office is in Spokane and the  officers are James Fitzpatrick, president; George Leyson, vice-prsident;  R. M. McEntire, treasurer and manager; Patrick Shine, secretary.  Little Monster Shipping-  A property on the east side of the  Columbia, situated near Al McKenney's  ranch, about four miles south of Boss-  burg, which has quietly developed into  a shipper is the Little Monster that  ���It. R. Phillips, J. H. Stone and associates have been operating, says the  Journal. The ore is being sacked and  will be shipped from the Bonanza spur.  This is a bromide-chloride silver proposition, with a vein four feet wide  which averages from $30 to $40 to the  ton in silver with traces of gold and  copper. Picked samples .assayed as  high as 500 ounces in silvei^snd $18 in  gold. The claim parallels the Oro  Grande. A car of ore is now being  loaded at the spur.  RAILWAYJAGMTESl  C. P. R. Officials Were Visitors to  the City Yesterday.  THE EASTERN DIVISION MANAGER,  Mr. Thomas Tait, Sees Greenwood for the  ���''���:. First Time and Is Well Pleased-Mr.  Peters' Freight Worries.  Description of the Myers Creek Property in  Which Greenwood Is Interested.  The Chesaw correspondent of the  Spokesmen Review recently sent this  interesting report of the Review mine:  Through the courtesy bf Mr. McEntire, manager of the Review mine,  the Spokesman-Review correspondent  was enabled to inspect that property.  The feature that most impresses one  is the fact that there is not a foot of  dead work. Every dollar of the thousands that have been expended seems  to have been used to the best advantage.  The property consists of two full  claims, the Review and the Bird and  two fractions.  The ledge runs southeast and northwest. The tunnel has been driven in  on  the ledge and has never  left it.  |  LATEST NEWS OF THE MINES.  %  �� *  S. F. Parrish, M. BJ., superintendent  of the B. C. mine, was in the city  yesterday. Mr. Parrish stated that  regular shipments to the Trail smelter  were being maintained. The values  from the smelter are keeping remart-  ably even and are entirely satisfactory  to those interested in the property.  The big compressor plant for the mine  is being placed in position. It consists of twc. 80-horse-power boilers and  half of a 20-drill compressor.  R. W. Nesbitt of the Columbia Review was in the city this week. He  reports a strike of rich galena made  last we��k by the English and French  company ou their North Fork property. The City of Paris, in Central  camp, is maintaining a steady shipment to the Granby smelter, the ore  being hauled in wagons., It is expected that the smelter will be blown  in about May 1st. In the mean time  .ore will be roasted in the open air.  Hank Snibley, one of the owners of  the J. S. claim, in Summit camp, was  in the city this week. But little work  has been done on the J. S. this winter  on account of water, but a company is  being organized to p it in a plant and  develop the property. Snibley and  Budhow have been developing the  Quartz claim, in the same camp', and  they have a splendid showing of ore  in the shaft.  ���'  Working Night and Day.

A page of the register of the Hotel'  Armstrong was dedicated to the Canadian Pacific Railway company last  evening. A big party of the company's officials came in on. the private-  car Ernscliffe and secured quarters at  the Armstrong. The party included  Wm. Whyte, D. F. Coyle, Winnipeg ;  Thos. Tait, W. J. Cullen, and J. L.  Doube, Montreal; Geo. S.  Cambie, A.  E. Armsted, H. J. Cambie and R.  Marpole, Vancouver ; J. W. Troup and  F. W. Peters, Nelson ; A. B. McKen-  zie, Rossland; F. P. Gutellius, F. E.  Hobbs and J. Lawrence, Trail,  At the head of the party was Thomas  Tait, general manager of the Eastern  Disvision of the big railway. Visiting  Boundary for the fiTst time, Mr. Tait  was astonished to find a city like  Greenwood. He expected a rough  mining town and found ah up-to-date  city. He predicts a wonderful future  for the city and district. William  Whyte, the Western, manager, and R.  Marpole, as well as other members of  the party, are old friends in Greenwood. Each visit only strengthens  their opinion that Greenwood is going  to be the city of the interior.  The only member of the party who  seemed to be worried was F. W.  Peters, the general freight agent.  Like all railway men, Mr. Peters is  not worried when he officially does  those those things, he ought not to do,  and is severely criticized, but he hates  to be roasted when he. feels convinced  that there is no justification. A short  time ago the Canadian Pacific Railway  company issued a formidable looking  array of figures which they called the  new tariff sheet for the Boundary  branch of the Columbia and Western  railway. Figures don't lie, but���  well, certain newspapers found in  them food for editorial thought, and  the thoughts were not nice ones so far  as Mr. Peters' department is ,con:  cerned. Hence his worried look. He  was eloquent in his defense of the new  tariff. He showed conclusively that  the freight rates were exceptionally  low and Greenwood was of all points  the most highly favored by the big  company, Merchants felt that the  heavy drains on their bank accounts  because of contributions to the  C. P. R. freight department were  only ug-ly nightmares and that  their worries about through rates and  local rates were occasioned by dreams  of Joe Martin and the eight-hour law.  . The party were the guests of F. J.  Finucane, manager of the Bank of  Montreal, and in the evening he gave  a dinner at the Clarendon. As the  dinner was given at the Clarendon, it  is needless to say that the visitors had  another opportunity of assuring themselves that Greenwood is an up-to-date  city. The dinner was an informal one  without any dry speeches, but plenty  of wit and humor.  This morning the party visited  Phoenix. They leave this afternoon  for Nelson, where they spend tomorrow. Mr. Tait will go east via St.  Paul, examining the Soo line en route.  1*7 A D  - -tt r%..\-  notes   ��� At Orange River the cunning Boers  try to trap our men by driving cattle  into an open space near hills in which  their marksmen are hidden, or by  tethering ponies in the same place;  but the artifice is too transparent and  meets with no success.

SHORT RATIONS AND NO LUXURIES  Children Dying Daily���Fever and Dysentery,  Soldiers Remain at Post Father Than  Work Up an Appetite.  London, March 8.���The following  dispatch, dela3red in transmission, was  received this morning:  Ma PEKING, Feb. 19.���Horse meat  now composes a considerable part of  our rations. There is little grumbling.  The first pitch of the siege is over,  and the town has settled down grimly  to stay it out. What may be typhoid  fever has broken out in the women's  laager, and dysentery, due to the absence of vegetables, is rife among the  garrison.  "We are thrown upon our own resources. Such luxuries as we had are  exhausted, or have been commandered  for the hospitals, which are filled to  overflowing.'  The children's 'graveyard, close to  the women's laager, grows weekly-as  the young lives are cut short prematurely by shell and fever. We look  with hope deferred for relief. The  cheerfulness which was characteristic  of the". early days of the siege has  almost deserted us, the-men. preferring to remain at their posts rather  than move about and work up an appetite which cannot be satisfied.  The natives are in the worse "plight.  Those who are unable to obtain work  are allowed a small handful of meal  Many braving the danger wander  about the town with hungry. faces... If  the}- find work they are generally too  weak to perform it. From their advanced positions the Boers rake the  streets and the market square. It is  impossible to dodge their shells. Even  the headquarters mess fare scantily.  Two hundred and ninety-two persons  have been killed, wounded or died of  disease. The garrison is - so small  that it would be criminal to make its  weakness public, but. there is never' so  much as a whisper. If no one has  suggested the possibility of surrender  it is because we clo not mean to get  bea/ten, and we are cheerfully enduring the hardships of today rather than  to make a surrender in any degree possible tomorrow.     7      *  VICTORIA NEWS.

Today brings no developments. Martin casually intimates  that thereis no hurry for dissolution,  as the government can be carried on  by the governor's warrants after supply runs out, but this is probably only  to throw his opponents off the scent,  as the governor's speech at prorogation announced that there would be  another session before the end of  June. ���  ROBERTS' OFFICIAL DISPATCH.

London, March 9.���The morning-  newspapers admit that yesterday's  demonstrations were quite without  precedent, and they teem with patriotic  expression of gratification of the  Queen's opportune and tactful contribution toward the xinity of empire.  The Times says: " The Queen has  had many royal greetings, but it is  doubtful whether the exuberant enthusiasm of yesterday has ever been  equalled. There was no pageant, but  there was a constant exhibition and  genuine popular demonstration, which  is itself., the most impressive of all  pageants."  Commenting on the Queen's visit to  Ireland and the speech of Mr. John  Redmond in the house of commons,  the Times says: "Mr. Redmond performed his difficult task with excellent  judgment and tact."  The Daily News, which describes the  demonstration as an "improvised  jubilee," in some ways even more  impressive than the diamond jubilee,  says.: "Its significancce is beyond  question. Nor can it be doubted that  Her Majesty's visit to Ireland will also  be a great success, providing care is  taken that it is not excited for political  purposes. Mr. Redmond's remarks in  the house were well conceived and well  expressed."  The Daily Telegraph says : " The  demonstration has never been equalled  in the annals of. any other nation.  Not even the Queen herself has ever  known a demonstration of love and  loyalty so deep: The bonds between  the empire and the Queen today are  those of living, breathing, chivalrous  devotion.'7  All the papers express commendation  of Mr. Redmond's attitude.

London, March 8.-���The Queen's  entry into London, the commencement  of her visit to the metropolis, _ was  marked by scenes of enthusiasm unparalleled since the Jubilee celebration.  Throughout the demon��trations there  predominated a note of triumph, and  cheers that made the murky streets  ring were almost as much in honor of  the British victories in South Africa  as they. were vociferous tributes of a  loyal people to a monarch whose  womanly sympathy have been strikingly shown since tfle war began. The  royal parties' departure was marked.by  more than usual interest. For hours  before, the Queen even started for  London, crowds were in the streets  which had been announced as the route  through the metropolis and. which  were decorated with flags. It was  fog'gry. and cold, but no.one seemed to  care. At Paddington the railway station had been cleared of the genera]  public, but outside thousands of people  waited patiently. When the' train from  "Windsor arrived, at 12:30 o'clock, a  tremendous cheer went up. Her  Majesty came down the station platform leaning on the arm of a turbaned  Indian attendant and entered an open  ladean, in which also sat Princess  Henry of Battenburg and Princess  Victoria of Schleswig-Holstein. The  streets were packed. But it was around  the palace itself that the throng gathered. By noon it was estimated that.  50,000 had"gathered about t_ie Queen's  town residence.  Soon after noon the Duke and Duchess of York drove into the courtyard and received an ovation. Mr.  Joseph Chamberlain, the secretary of  state for. the colonies, joined unnoticed the distinguished throng in the  courtyard. Later the Duke and Duchess of York appeared on a D*alcony  in front of the palace. Then from  Constitution Hill came the dull roar  of distant'eheers, and the cry, " She is  coming," was passed from mouth to  mouth.  A patrol of police went by followed  by a flash of steel, as the Life  Guardsmen and outriders trotted  through the gates and all hats 'flew in  the air, a mighty cheer arose and  slowly there passed a carriage, on the  back seat of which sat a little black  figure, heavily veiled and nodding  right and left. Suddenly for the first  time in the day the sun came out from  behind the clouds and shone over the  shouting thousands and pierced the  fog. . It showed happy smiles lighting  up the aged monarch's face. It was a  repetition .of scenes of1 the Jubilee,  and there was Queen's weather in the  truest sense.  A Night of Terror.  "Awful anxiety was felt for the  widow of the brave General Burnham  of Mahias, Me., when the doctors said  she would die from pneumonia before  morning," writes Mrs. S. H. Lincoln,  who attended her that fearful night,  but she begged for Dr. King's New  Discovery, which had more than once  saved her-life-and cured-her of Consumption. After taking she slept all  night. Further use entirely cured her.  This marvelous medicine is guaranteed  to cure all Throat, Chest and Lung  Diseases. Only 50c. and $1. Trial  bottles free at Miller Bros.' drug store.
