Ottawa, June 23.���The opposition  is still in the throes of .anxious uncertainty, casting about for a policy  upon which to appeal to the country,  but withlittlepromiseof a happy issue  out of all their afflictions. It is a  thankless and ^unpromising task, this  business of bucking up against a government which has established clean,  honest administration, restored confidence to a harassed business community, facilitated the development of  the natural wealth "of the country,  enabled all "classes of the people to  avail themselves to the full of the  exceptional era of good times which  has come to us, raised the Dominion  from an obscure, little-known and seldom-considered ' portion of the empLie  to the foremost place in the federation  of English-speaking nations, and in a  hundred other ways changed for the  better the whole course of Canadian  history, doing more for the country  and its people in four years than their  predecessors accomplished in five times  that- period. It is a " thankless task  to oppose a government with such  a record���would be discouraging under  any circumstances, but is particularly  -so.-filst-. now, when every desperate  effort to ferret out or concoct charges  of wrong-doing have utterly failed,  and even legitimate criticism upon  questions of policy which admit of  difference of opinion fall upon the uninterested ear of a satisfied and contented community. How eagerly the  Tories seize upon a rumor that the  general elections may not be held until  the spring, and how devotedly they  are praying that it may be so, for  something may turn up, they hope, in  the mean time.  The latest figures obtainable from  the department of trade and commerce  indicate that the present year, when  completed at the end of this month,  will once again make a new record in  our history. Thc total so far for eleven  months is $323,596,476, as against $312,-  000,000 for the previous full and completed year. We have become thoroughly accustomed to these stories of  rapid development, for each year since  the~ change-of ���governmentr~in -1896,  has been marked by phenomenal progress; but to fully appreciate the improvement, and to enable us to realize  how impossible and absurd it is to pretend that the change is simply a happy  coincidence and in no way attributable  to better methods of government, it is  necessary to look back over the past  and make one or two comparisons.  We began at confederation with a  trade of $131,000,000. There were various fluctations, but the general tendency was upward, and in 1883 the trade  was $230,340,000, or an increase of nearly a hundred millions in the first fifteen years of confederation. After  1883 there was a falling off until 1892,  when the figure of $241,369,000. was  reached. In 1896 the trade was $239.,-  025,000. From that time the increase  has been extraordinary. There has  been more growth in the last four  years than in the first fifteen years of  confederation. While the imports of  the country have been more than  doubled since confederation, the exports have been more than trebled.  That this record of unprecedented increase may be modified sooner or later  goes without saying���no reasonable  man can expect otherwise, but let the  future bring what it may, Canada can  never fall back to her old condition of  stagnation; Better methods and sounder principles of trade have been firmj  ly established, the old fallacies have  been thoroughly discredited, and the  ultra-protectionist policy of Tory  regime has now few adherents   save  in the ranks of those who were making  themselves rich under its fostering  care at the expense of the community  at large.  No better evidence of , the permanency of the improvement could be offered than it> given in the figures which  record the increase iu the acreage  under cultivation in Manitoba. In  1890 there we're 1,082 000 acres under  tillage for all crops, m 1895 the total  had risen to 1,887,796, while this y^ar  there are 2,612,134 acres, or an increase  iu ten years of 160 per cent. This is  in the 'oldest settled of the western  provinces, the progress in the territories is in like proportion, and it  means a permanent growth which no  future depression can' seriously effect,  though of course an occasional un-.  favorable season may modifiy it temporarily. There is healthy natural ad-'  vancement and not the artificial improvement which results from the'  forced growth of protection nurtured  industries.  KRUGER MOURTAIN CAMP.  Good reports of mining development on Kruger mountain, in Okanogan country, are brought lo the city  by W. H. Thomas, who has considerable interest there. Mr. Thomas yesterday gave the following news from  his district, illustrating it with a.number of handsome specimens of ore  from the properties:  " The camp is still a new one, and as  yet the"chief operators are prospectors  and the original claim owners. Kruger mountain is on the international  Hue and runs parallel to the Okanogan  river aud Osoyoos lake to Jthe  northeast of them. The best" prospects so far discovered are on the east  of Similkameen slope of the mouutain.  "Within the past year the Dividend, which is on the British Columbia side of the line, has gone down  180 feet into a heavy body of ore, and  has also from 150-to 175 feet of tunnel and crosscuts. Nearly all the  workings are in ore, the vein being at  least from 20 to 25 feet wide. The ore  is said to be a pyrotite, carrying arsenic, aud that on the dump is claimed  to average about $40 per ton.  '- On the American side is the Golden Chariot, which was recently  bonded to Rossland parties by its  owners, Farrer & Goddard. The shaft  is being cleaned out ready for regular  work. The shaft is down 60 feet,  showing an ore body from three to live  feet wide, the ore running from $40 to  $50 per ton. The ore carries gold and  copper, the latter predominating. ,  "On the Lakeview, owned by Ben  Anderson and Bowerman brothers, a  considerable amount of work has been  done, and there is a good showing.  About 400 feet of tunnelling has revealed a good-sized Ore body, carrying about 8 per cent copper and sevei al  dollars in gold.  " A discovery of considerable interest was made on the - mountain recently. A large piece of float was di_>-  covcred which ran $693 in tellurides  and free gold, with a little silver. The  float was traced to its source and the  Calumet claim s>taked,-but-so far-the  ore shown in the float has not been  found in place. This is* the only discovery of this kind of ore yet made in  the district, aud developments are-  being watched with interest.  "There are from 50 to 75 claims in  the camp with good showings, though  the work done so far is chiefly on the  suiface. Many of these claims were  staked seven or eight years ago, but  most of the work has been done in the  last year. The ore is chiefly copper-  gold, and is excellent looking stuff  near the surface. Those...who have  seen the showings say that they are  excellent as far j^s work . has gone.  The ore is certainly so good that, when  the continuance of the. veins with  depth and the* values is shown, the  camp will be of established import-  iice. There a is a good; deal of quiet  interest in the operations of the pres-  edt season, and I believe .some good  things will be heard from the camp  before next winter.���Spokesman-Review.  W..

McEntire ^returned last nighty  from   Bolster  and confirmed ..the re-"  port regarding the discovery of rich.  placer   ground   on   the   Lone    Star-'  ground.     Mr.  McEntire informed   a t  Times representative that the'discov-.'  ero was made while an upraise for'air   -  was being run from the Review tun- ' *  nel through the bed of a small. stream  ,  to the surface.   In turning this stream  so that it would not run down the up-  raise,   good  looking dirt was  uncov-/~  ered, and Mr. McEntire' washed sev-_.,  eral pans.   Coarse gold was' found and'. *  as high as 60 colors to  the pan was 7'"  taken qut.   The stream crosscuts the  Lone Star vein, whicli is an extension  of the famous-Reco vein, "from which"  so much rich gold was taken out'a few.  years ago.   The presumption" is  that    "  the creek bed down from this* vein is  rich   placer  and the ground* will be  *  prospected right awayl ''     "  The Review tunnel- is" in'-200  feet. ��� ,  The work   is in soft rock, similar to  that on the upper tunnel and five feet  a day is being made.    Th'e tunnel will''  be  mn  640  feet  giving _ a "depth bf  between 400 and 500feet.

P. R.  people.   Mrs. Egerton has been much  struck bythe scenery along the line of  the C. P. R., as well as with the service  which    the   company   rendered  across   the  cdntineiit, and' she determined   to -let "tlie- folk   in*-England  know something about both. -, For this  purpose she availed, herself of a fancy  ball at Covent Garden, to appear in a  costume  which   took   first  prize  for  originality, and which illustrated Canadian scenery'and the C*   P. R. in a  highly striking manner.     The lady's  hat  was   trimmed   in  a  rrtanner  to  show the C.  P. R. trains in motion;*  her cape set forth Lake Ontario, Lake  Superior  and the Roifty  Mountains,  while the front of her dress showed a  train rushing at "full speed  through"  thc wonderful ravines in thenar Northwest.

The; Boundary, vote  is thus larger even than New Westminster City, and there is this further  fact to be kept in mind, that population is increasing here, and with the  mines now entering upon the production stage, will increase still more  rapidly.  THE  RATION SCANDAL.  fi  i.  B  .   - I  3  -J  An enquiry is being made into the  merits or demerits of an emergency  "food that has been supplied the militia  'department for use in the South Af ri-  7,can campaign. An expert in the  -preparation of condensed food fur-  /nished the militia department early in  1899 with samples of his products. A  test was made, and it was found thai  the food sustained life for 30 days. It  bad in it 66 per cent of nutriment, and  was considered excellent for use in  cases of emergency. Several ship?  mentsi of this food was sent to South  Africa. According to the charges made  by Mr. Monk, who brought the matter  up ia the House of Commons, a sample  of the food sent to South Africa was  analyzed by an eminent scientist in  Montreal, and he declared that it contained a trifle over 17. per cent of nutri  ment. Aa a food, it was stated, it was  only worth a quarter of the value of  that originally tested, and that the  government had paid for it four times  what it w&s really worth.  Now there may be a good deal oj  truth in the statements of Mr.. Monk,  because no matter how careful the  militia department may be it is only  human, and is likely to be victimized  once in a while. There is no necessity,  however, for the great cry that the  Conservatives are making. They  even attempt to convince the public  that the Liberals are trying to burke  an investigation. But as Sir Richard  Cartwright pointed out in the house,  Dr. Borden, minister of militia, has a  son fighting in South Africa, he himself has a aim. It was not likely, therefore, that they would put any obstacles  ih the way of an investigation tending  to bring to justice those who manufactured spurious emergency food for  the use of Canadian soldiers in South  Africa. The militia department may  have "been swindled, but the Liberal  government will certainly do everything in its power to secure a thorough  investigation.  SIR HENRI JOLY.  The appointment of Sir Henri Joly  de Lotbinaire as lieutenant-governor  of British Columbia has given rise to  some adverse criticism. The gravja-  men of. the charge laid against the  Laurier administration for the appointment is that the highest office in the  province should be given to a resident  and not to an outsider... Under ordinary circumstances this point would be  Well taken, but when is is considered  that the province has been in a political turmoil for several months, and  that much of the trouble has been occasioned by the occupier of the gubernatorial chair, the federal government  has taken a wise precaution in appointing one! who is free from all political  entanglemeut so far as .this province  is concerned.  As to Sir Henri's fitness for the  position there cannot be any doubt.  In every way he is peculiarly fitted  for the position. He wil' make a dignified representative, and in a social  way will excei.all his predecessors.  ON   THE   WRONG   TRAIL.  The miners of  America are on the  wrong trail. If they continue to follow  it they will always have trouble.   We  find them, banded together in unions  strung all over the continent, and for  what purpose? To guard against being  worked to death for low wages.   Under  the present economic system they cannot exist without capital, and yet they  are constantly on the defensive against  it.   The.unions -must  advance   to   a  higher plane of  usefulness.   Instead  of standing off, fighting and wrangling, with capital, they should mix the  two together "and  become their own  capitalists.   They   furnish   the  labor  which makes the capital and might as  well get all there is in it.   Instead of  putting up money for leaders, delegates, strike and all other funds, why  not invest it, and the many thousands  that miners waste for whisky and other  enemies ten times worse than capital,  ia"buying,^developing���.and_iiworkingj  mines of their own.   Instead of pay  ing orators to fight their battles, why  not.employ competent   mining  managers and do the entire business?   No  reason in the world.   If they would do  something- like   this   labor, troubles  would become obsolete.   Come higher  up the right trail,   you  drill-hitters,  and look down upon the hole you are  now  floundering  in.    You  are  surrounded   by   knife-blade   politicians,  diamond-shirted gin-fizz mixers, windy  agitators, labor advocates and  other  human wolves, all seeking your votes  and money in order that  they may  wear the boiled shirt while you sweat  and take*chances, in the dark tunnels  and stopes of this great country.   You  think all these fellows are your friends.  Not a bit of it.   They are just playing  you for, suckers in order that they may  appease their appetites for fame and  easy, luxurious living.   Bo not be misled any longer.   Get in and be your  own capitalists, and do not stop until  every human leech between hell and  Frisco has been jarred loose and com*  pelled to make bis own living.   You  are surrounded and covered all over  with false lights, who will lead you  into destruction if you do not put them  out and, strike for the new trail we  point out,   Get to it even if you have  to stumble for a few miles in the dark.  After you have travelled it for a few  miles you will wonder why  you did  not find it sooner.   By doing so harmony will' prevail in western mining  TOB GE$S$WQ0D W8��8tT TIMli,.  85_H!Ss35��53S��E  THE)   PARIS   EXHIBITION.  camps,  and no man will hate  for   labor  Ledge..  reasons. ��� New  another  Denver  Accordiug to all accounts that are  reaching us from across the water,  Canada's exhibit at the Paris Exposition is one that reflects credit upon  those who are responsible for its preparation and arrangement; and what is  more important, one that will be of  immense value in advertising the vast  resources and opportunities of the  Domiuion. It is well calculated to  make the -Dominion better .known  abroad, attract the attention of foreign  capital to her natural wealth of 'mini,  eral and lumber, and to illustrate .the  fertility of her soil and her capabilities  for varied production. Two of.the  most important. exhibits in' this respect are those of forestry -ind mining.  The golden wealth of British Columbia  and the Klondike has given theDoinn-  io'n a prominence among the gold producing nations of the world which is  attracting all the greater interest .because of its recent origin. The nickel  deposits of Sudbury too, are ��� creating  a keen interest more particularly because the other great nickel deposits  of-the world���the mines of New Cali-  donia���are almost entirely in tlie hands  of French capitalists. The exhibit of  Canadian coal, too, is attracting much  attention, particularly as at the present  time the price of coal is very high in  Europe. Canada's forestry exhibit is  the largest and most varied" in the  entire exhibition and is divided into  three general groups: (1) section of  the principal Canadian trees, some in  the form of logs and- some polished on  one face; (2) six-foot .lengths of the  chief Canadian woods, one-third polished, one-third waxed and one-third  in their natural condition; (3) samples  of all the wood products of Canada  such as .pails, boxes, implements, etc.  NO WEAKNESS THERE.  Certain Conservative journals see iu  the defeat of Joseph Martin and the  dismissal of Mclnnes shadows of a  family quarrel that will weaken the  Liberal party. oThe wish is the father  of the thought. Conservatives forget  that Liberals in the past have never  followed in Conservative footsteps by  shielding those who did wrong, and  neither will Liberals in the future.  The strength of any party, does not lie  in defending those in error, but in  standing fast to those princioles which  has given it prestige. The defense bf  Martin's treachery or Mclnnes' blundering would have brought no strength  to the Liberal party, and the party does  well when it turns one down and dismisses the other.  ANOTHER JUDGE WANTED.  Today His Honor Judge Spinks left  for Grand Forks, although all the cases  on the docket were by no means disposed of. The learned judge's departure leaving the work here in an  unfinished state was occasioned by the  fact that he had advertised appointments.; in other cities, and in order to  fill these it was necessary for him to  leave today.. Whether it is wiser to  keep engagements elsewhere rather  than finish the court business here  need not be discussed, but we wish to  point out the very great hardship on  litigants under the existing order of  things.   An important case, in which  th"e7p^'ff"P*i^"atI^=vv^aesses -'are^frbm  a distance, has been twice adjourned,  insuring heavy law costs for the unsuccessful litigants. This is by no means  a singular example, but there are many  cases that have to be postponed because His Honor's engagements do  not permit his hearing them. The  truth is that the department of justice  has not kept pace with the development in the west and there are too few  judges for the work. There should be  at least one more judge appointed for  the interior. There was plenty of work  here at this sitting to keep a judge busy  for nearly a week and one day was all  the time he could give. Legal work increases with the rapid development of  the country and unless proper provision be made, serious hardship will  be worked on litigants.  Until another judge is appointed  some arrangement should be made  whereby sittings of the county court  may be held here at least once a  month.  GAMBLING IN THE CITY.  As one who is wrapt up in the future  of the city, I deem it my duty to protest against tho action of certain officials in countenancing the pernicious  and open sure-thing gambling in  vogue here. I do not think there will  be any difficulty for the citizens to  find out who was instrumental in  bringing a horde of disreputable  gamblers into our midst, and when the  guilty party is found let it be a matter  of public record, and thereby fix the  responsibility for this gross miscarriage of a public trust.   _Surely some  thing can be done and done at once*  Thanking you for the use of your valuable columns. s    Veritas.  THE   McINNES   FAMILY.  The Mclnnes family is irrepressible.  Neither the electors nor the federal  authorities can keep them down. They  establish their own precedents, make  political parties solely comprised of  the family, and fill the newspapers  with column after column of Mclnnes  wisdom. It is "unfortunate that J. C.  McLagan is away from Vancouver.  Had he been there, ten columns of the  World would never have been used to  inflict drivel upon a suffering public.  It is a rather striking commentary.on  the weakness of the Mclnnes cause  when it requires ten columns to prove  right what the electors and the federal  government very laconically proved,  wrong. Mclnnes pere, Billy the boy  orator and Thomas Jr., the family  cabinet-maker,"are altogether too much  and too many to turn loose ou a Province after a season of political turmoil.  It is rather a remarkable fact that  the Mclnnes family can get but a few  to agree with them. The Toronto  Globe sizes up the situation as follows:  "Liberals who object to a government by a moribund Senate cannot  stand in defense of rule by an autocratic governor. Mr.. Mclnnes appointed to the Premiership of British  Columbia a man who had practically  no. following in the legislature. He  dismissed a government that was able  to supply evidence that it could command a majority of the assembly. The  governor's action was condemned by an  almost unanimous vole of the.oldlegislature. The governor's nominee was  given weeks to form his government  and months to perfect his campaign in  the country, aud yet at the polls he  was overwhelmingly defeated. The  governor "has violated every tradition  and principle of popular government  and set the Canadian constitution at  defiance. He has wholly misunderstood his position and undertaken to  exercise functions which can only be  properly exercised by a free parliament. From every standpoint Mr.'  Mclnnes is condemned by all sound  constitutional precedent, and it is right  lhat his dismissal should be demanded  and necessary that the demand should  be granted."  EDITORIAL NOTES.  Word comes from the Coast that ex-  Lieutenant-Governor Mclnnes intends  to run in the Vancouver Island constituency made vacant by the resignation of his sou, William Wallace  Bruce Mclnnes. It will be interesting  to know what political mantle the  doughty governor will wear. He  started' life as a Liberal, turned Tory,  turned Liberal, turned Tory, turned  Liberal, and now it is more than probable he will go back to the Tory fold.  The governor is constitutionally better  adapted for a Tory than a Liberal.  A dog catcher should be appointed  to rid the town of all the untagged curs  in the city. If this was done at least  seventy-five per cent of the canines in  the-city would disappear.  COUNTY COURT.  A,Lar2e_Number__qf__CasesLWere on  the Docket���Speedy Trial.  j His Honor Judge Spiuks had more  cases than he could dispose of in the  time he allotted himself in Greenwood,  and consequently he left by train this  forenoon without hearing a number of  cases on thc docket.  This morning two speedy trials came  before His Honor. One Gascoigne, ar-.  rested in Greenwood a few months ago  for an unmentionable crime,-was found  guilty and sentenced to five years  imprisonment. James Smith and his  consort, "Bronco Liz," got quarrelling  in their tent near Keremeos last spring.  R. H. Parkinson, J. P., came along  and endeavored to restore peace.  Smith was handling a rifle. It weht  off, and the bullet passed through  " Bronco Liz's" leg. Smith today got  one year with hard labor.  The case which attracted the most  attention was that of McLeod vs.  Sutherland. Ths circumstances connected with the doing of .the assessments up the West Fork, and the paying therefor, have already figured in  in the courts. The jury awarded judgment in favor of McLeod for the bal-.  ance of assessment money, viz., $100.  The other cases were suits for unpaid  debts of small amounts, judgment for  the plaintiffs being given iu the majority of them.  LI'S   PROCLAMATION,  London.

I steady their forbears had hurled back  ' the chivalry of France and tamed the  sHeajassasassaB^^  ggaastagggsate^gasggggi'^fegsjgc'-y^  and beloved genet al who fell at  Magersfontein, is told graphically in  the London Daily News by A. G-. Hales,  the Australian correspondent for .that  paper.    Mr. Hales say._:  When,  a few  months ago, I stood  upon   the    veldt    almost   within   the  shadow   of   the    frowning    brow   of  Magersjfontein's    surly   heights,   and  looked  upwii  the cold, stern  faces of  Scotland's dead,  and listened  to  the  weird wailing of the bagpipes, whjlst  Cronje gazed triumphantly down from  his' inaccessible  mountain stronghold  upou his'haiuliwork, I knew in my soul  that a day would dawn when  Scotland  would demand an eye for an eye, blood  for  blood.   1 read it written  on   the  faces of the men who rode with martial  tread around the la-s.t sad resting-place  of   him  the*-**-, loved���their  chief,   the  dauntless General Wauchope.   Vengeance   spoke   in   the   sombre fire that  blazed in every Scotsman's eye.  --  That hour has come.   The men who  sleep   in soldiers'  graves   beside   the  willow-clad banks of the Modder river  have been avenged.   It was the first of  May.   We had the Boers hard pressed  " .in Thaba N'Chu in  a run of kopjes  that   reached    in   almost    unbroken  sequence   further   thaii   a man's   eye  might reach.   The flying French was  with us, chafing like a leashed' greyhound because he could not sweep all  before him with  one impetuous rush.  Rundle,   too,    was    here,    with    his  haughty, handsome face, as keen as  French, but with  a better grip on his.  feelings.  SIX THOUSAND OV THR FOB.  Under Louis Botha���cool, crafty, longheaded,   resourceful���have    held   the  kopjes.    Again   and   again   we   have  manoevred to trap them, but no wolf  in winter is more wary than Botha, no  weasels more watchful than the men  he commanded.   When  we   advanced  they fell back, when we fell back they  advanced, until the merest tyro in the  arl-of war could see that a frontal al-  ' '    tack, unless  made in almost hopeless  positions, was impossible.    So Hamilton swept round their right ilank, ten I  miles north of Thaba N'Chu, and gave*  them a taste of   his skill and daring,  whilst Rundle held their main body  here at Thaba N'Chu.   Rundle made a  feint oh  their center in strong force,  and they closed'in from both flanks to  resist him.   Then  he drew off   as if  fearing the issue. This drew the Boers  in, and they pounded our camp with  shells until one wondered whether the  German-made rubbish they used would  last- them   much   longer.     Then    we  threatenedtheir left���fiank-quickiy_aiid  sharply, giving Hamilton time to strike  on  their right, and he struck without  erring, whipping the enemy at every  point he touched, driving them  out of  their   positions,    and    holding   them  firmly himself, so   threatening ��� their  rear-and the  immense herds of sheep  and oxen they have with them, making  a footing for the  British  to move on  and cut Botha off   from  his base at  Kroonstad.      >    .  Whether "he ��� will    now: stand    his  ground and fight or make a break for  fhe main army of the Boers is hard to  *jf      calct}late,"for the  Boer generally does  ���jH8t what no onp expects   he will at-  "I'lX HAYONKTS,  Like   lightning   the   strong  a  x'*1.,teb^l,tQ do.  .<'     ".-'".

He is  ^ ���   _  ii  Muscovite pride, and they were soon  to pVove themselves men woithy of  their captain. ''  On the other side ro��>e superior numbers of the Boers.    A wild and   motley  crew tliey looked compared, to the gem  of the Britian's army.   Boys htuod side  by side   with ~old   men,   lads   braced  themselves shoulder to shouldciv with  men in their manhood's prime, ragged  beards fell on still   more ragged  shirt  front*.    But there were, many  hearts  behind those ragged garments,   hearts  that beat high with love of home and  country, hearts that seldom quailed   in  the hour oT peril.   Their ri flies lay  in  hands steady  and strong.     The  Boer  was face to face with   the  Briton;   the  number-, lay ou the  side of  the  Boer,  but the bayonet was with the Briton.  "Throw up your hands and surrender." The language was English, but  the accent was" Dutch; a moment, an  awful s_ec~ond of time, the rille barrels  gleamed coldly towards that little  group of men, who stood their ground  as pine trees stand ou their mountain  side in Bonny Scotland. Then out on  the African air there rang a voice,  proud, clear, and as high as. clarion  note:  GORDONS!"  hands  .gripped the ready steel; bayonets went  home to the barrel as the lips of \Lover  to lover. Rifles spoke from the Boer  lines, aud men reeled a pace from the  British and fell, and lay where they  fell. Agaiu that voice with the Scottish burr on .every note: "Charge,  Gordons! Charge!" and the dauntless Scotchman rushed bu.at .the head  of his fiery few.  The Boer's heart is a brave heart,  and he who calls them  cowards lies;  but never before had they  faced   so  grim a charge, never before had thej'  seen a torrent of steel advancing  on  their lines in front of a tornado of flesh  and blood.    On ruslied the Scots,  on  over fallen  comrades, on over rocks  and clefts, on to the ranks of the foe,  and onward through  them, sweeping  them down as I have seen wild horses  sweep through a field of ripening corn.  The bayonets hissed as they crashed  through   breastbone   and     backbone.  Vainly the Boer clubbed his rille and  smote back.    As well might the" wild  goat strike with puny hoofs when  the  tiger springs.   Nothing could stay the  fury of that desperate r.tsh.  MAGERSFONTEIN  REMEMBEKED.  Do .you sneer at the Boers ?   Then  sneer at the armies of Europe, for nev-  eryet have Scotland's sons-been driven  back when once Ihey reached a foe to  smite.  " How do   they   charge,   these  bare-legged sons of Scotia ?. Go ask  the hills of Afghanistan, and if there  be tongues within them they will   tell  you that they sweep like hosts from  hell.    Ask in sneering Paris,  and  the  red records of Waterloo will  give  you  answer.    Ask in St.  Petersburg,  and  from .Sevastopol   your .aus.vcr     will  come. -   They  thought of,.the  dreary  morning hours of Magersfontein,  and  they;   smote " the    steel     downwards  through the neck into the liver.   They  thought of the row of comrades iu  the  graves beside the Modder, and they J  gave the Boers the "haymaker's  lift,"  and tossed their dead body behind them  They   thought   of gallant Wauchope  riddled with lead,  and they sent the  cold steel with a horrible crash through  ���'.cull   and  brain,  leaving the face a  thing to make fields shudder.     They  was Hot stilled, but' a bullet missing  the brain had closed his eyes forever  to God's sunlight, leaving him to go  through life in darkness; and they  mourned for him as they had mourned  for noble, white-souled Wauchope,  whose prototype he was.

"THE CASE FOR THE " BOXERS,"  I  .'���|\  i      s'  $&Y:y ��� -:  i*S1* -'  #  f?*-* - .=-��� ���<:   ;  /,  * William E- Curtis, a well-kuown  "TO&shington, D. C, journalist, ventures to put in the following- plea of  extenuating circumstances on behalf  ' of the Chinese "Boxers," and certainly shows that there is something  ,to be said ior as well as much against  them:  " There are two sides to the story of  the 'Boxers' in China. You will notice  by the di*_p.ttches that there are railroad riots in the Shantung Province;  . that-the Belgian and German railway  en(;ineers,havp been assaulted and arc  afraid of assassination, and that work  has been suspended on certain portions of the line now under construction. ,1 have; alluded to this matter  before, and while no one can justify  thc assassination or approve the cowardly methods which the 'Boxers' have  adopted to revenge themselyes upon  thc 'foreign devils' that have invaded  their country, they can at least plead  extraordinary provocation, for the Germans and the Belgians who are constructing railroads in the Shantung  province have treated the natives in a  most abominable manner and have  provoked the riots of which they now  complain. That portion of China is  one of the most densely populated  sections of the earth, and the people  have a desperate struggle for existence. Every inch of ground is cultivated; every straw and every sprig of  vegetation is utilised in some way for  thc support of life. The country is  divided into little farms, which are  cultivated almost with a microscope,  one" might say, because it is necessary  for the subsistence -of some family,  and the dead are buried in the gravel  hills, where nothing can grow,  "Through   this country   and under  these conditions   railways   are being  constructed by German" and  Belgian  engineers, who show a most brutal indifference to the rights and the property - of the   people.   They   run  their  lines across the farms, they tear down  houses," burn down   villages,   destroy  crops, seize supplies, impress labor and  'treat the people in a most cruel and arbitrary manner.    If the same thing  should occur iu the United States or in  Europe   oi   in   any other part of the  ���world they would be attended by the  .-.ante results.   The " Boxers " were organized to resist   aud  revenge these  outrages, aud they use the only means  4*within their power to punish their op-  " pressors.   A Chinaman never gets any  jsympathy either in America or elsewhere, and the consciousness of that  fact compels him to carry on his operations with as great secrecy as possible.  ��� If the German  and   Belgian  railroad  people   would   treat   the  poor  coolie  farmers of the Shantung province in a  just and honorable manner aud give  them fair compensation for the property,  they   have taken   or   destroyed,  there   would  ht   no  need of sending  fleets to the Chinese waters or demanding   indemnity  at   the Tsung-t/i Ya-  nien."  The council decided that if the celebration committee thought it necessary the crossings on Copper street  would be taken up iu order to facilitate  horse racing.  Reports of the several committees  were received.  The clerk was instructed to write to  the city engineer asking him him to  notifv the Telephone and Electric  Light company re the moving of poles  oti Gold street to meet the requirements  of the new grade. The clerk was also  instructed to write to A. H. Sperry &  Co. re moving of warehouse on Boundary avenue.  A letter addressed to the city assessor-irom I. Ji. Hallett was placed  before the council. In his letter Mr.  Hallett claimed that his taxes were iu  excess aud not in accordance with the  assessment roll and enclosed a check  for what he thought right. His check  was refused.  By-law 48 was read a third time.  The clerk was authorized to draw a  check for $300 payable to the celebration committee.  MYERS CREEK MINING NEWS.  THE CITY COUNCIL  Si*-"*"  ���-i-twuy  V.

Mr. Alston's letter received  and filed.  J. W. Nelson and Miller Bros, asked  that the council take up the old flume  and lay a new sidewalk according to  street grades. This matter was left  to street committee. Referring to the  foregoing request, the city engineer  was instructed to make a profile of  that portion of Greenwood street between Government and Copper streets,  and that same be accepted by council  as the established grade.  W. G. McMynn asked for thc use of  the city hall for meeting of county  court.   His request was granted  A petition was read from the property-owners on hong IvJtke street asking that said street be opened up from  Greenwood street to Lincoln street;  also that the water works be extended  by laying pipes along the portion of  Long Lake street above mentioned.  The petition was received and filed.  Alderman Galloway gave notice that  at the next meeting of the council he  would introduce a by-law to alter  Government, Skylark, Long Lake and  Summit streets so as to conform with  Dundee street.  Alderman Galloway, referring to  refuse which had been dumped on  cemetery" grounds, reported" that F.  Clerff had dumped the refuse there.  The clerk was instructed to notify Mr.  Clerff that' unless refuse is buried  acUou will bs taken in the matter.  The past month has been rather an  indifferent one among the mines of  this district.

The principal  offenders were Theodore Faust and W.  Whealer. They were examined before  the justice who bound them over for  robbery. Faust 'and Whealer were  found guilty of robbing an Indian of  the proceeds of the sale of his horse  and saddle.  Mr. Baines. was subpoenaed as a  witness on the "Wilson horse stealing  case, but did not want to go, so a bench-  warrant was issued aud after an exciting scuffle, Deputy Sheriff Sanford  succeeded in getting his man, only to  have him break jail that night and get  across the line.  Some miscreant stole the blankets at  the Republic pest house and the result is that the quarantine is - once  more in force. As Chesaw has never  had a casev of sickness of any kind,  much b.ss smallpox, the quarantine is  a particular hardship.  of drifting on them and opening up  their ore bodies. This will be done as  soon as they get their water-right in  shape for transmitting power* for  running a large number of machine  drills.  Work on the water power will soon  begin, aud within a few months will  be so far along that development of  veins crossed can be begun in earnest.  MATRIMONIAL ROMANCE.

The names  on the hotel register are sufficiently  modest to not attract unusual attention, but behind them is a bit of romance that would bring joy to the  heart of the ubiquitous yellow journal  reporter. Mr. Matthcs felt lonely in  the quiet village of Midway, and believing that it it not good for man to  live alone, sought a wife through a  matrimonial paper published  in Chicago. Mis. H:lhnau felt  very        much as        did Mr  Matthes, and seeing the advertisement  a correspondence was started, which  culminated iu the arrival of Mrs.  Hillman yesterday. The final act in  the matrimonial drama will be played  tomorrow, when the two are to be made  man and wife. Who says that advertising does not pay?  GAMBLING AGAIN.  To the-Editor.  Tne p.iet assures us that thrice armed  is he who has his quarrel just. This  is in reference to the letter signed  "Vermis" which I read in your *issue  of yesterday relating to the gambling  in the city. I am pleased to see that  at least there are some people who are  not so far lost to all sense of honor  that they would be unwilling to take  up the cudgels on behalf of citizens.  Where are our officials? Cannot they  see the host ,of 'paresites fattening on  the honest labor of our people? Where  are those intellectual Colossus' the  skypilots? Usually they are not content upon the care of the spiritual welfare of man, but insist upon--usurping  functions of the legislators. How is it  they have not been heard on this subject? As one who is'interested in this  city I would suggest that all gambling  paraphernalia be thrown out, slot machines, roulette wheels and faro boxes.  Thanking you for the use of your  columns, I am  Merchant.  FROM PALMER MOUNTAIN.  Messrs. Hunter Bros. Returned from  Loontis��� Strike in Tunnel.  JrfsT Hunter and-Win.- Hunter-returned yesterday from a visit to thc  Palmer Mountain tunnel in which they  are interested." They report lively  times in that locality.  Recently in the Palmer Mountain  tunnel a little less than 3000 feet in,  a stringer of quartz one inch wide was  recently crossed. It was, however,  plainly visible in the roof and sides,,  and more from curiosity than anything  else Manager Boyd had it sampled all  round, The assay was a great surprise, being high in gold. This led  hint to have a shot put in on tne east  side of the tunnel. The first one  opened up a foot of quartz carding  the same high values as in the stringer  and each succeeding shot is proving  it still wider. Although two assays  only have been made, it has every  appearance, of being a most important  strike.  It might be unfair to thc property to  give out thc result of these two assays  until a sufficient distance has been run  on the vein to fully prove it. It may  be said, ho*wever, that a few hundred  feet of this quality of ore, with thc  present width of the quartz, would be  no small bonanza in any mine.  This strike is another illustration"of  the adage that it is the unexpected in  mining that generally happens. It  also brings the fact prominently to the  front that in a crosscut tunnel some of  of the largest ledges are cut in the  pinch, and some of the smallest in the  swell. Iu the case of the Palmer  Mountain tunnel, where 22 well-defined  veins have~been cut and a large number of stringers, it is simply a matter  la tlie Court of Yale Holden  /at Greenwood.
