METHUEN'S CAPTURE.
London, March 11.—The text of
Lord Kitchener's dispatch announcing the capture of General Methuen is
as follows :
" Pretoria, Saturday. March 8, 1902.
—I greatly regret to have to send you
bad news of Methuen, He -vas moving with 900 mounted men under
Major Paris, 300 infantry and four
guns and pom pom from Wynburg to
Licit then burg, and was to meet Gren-
fell with 1200 mounted men at btovi-
rainesfontein today. Yesterday morning early he was attacked by
Delarey's force between Twehosch aud
and Palmietknill. The Boers charged
on three sides. Five hundred and
fifty men have come in at Maribogs
and Kraaipau. They were pursued by
the toers four miles from the see ie of
the action. Tbey report that Methuen
and Paris, with guns, baggage, etc.,
were captured by tbe Boers. Methuen,
when last seen, was a prts mer. I
have no details ol tbe casualties, and
suggest delaying publication until I
can send definite news. I think this
sudden revival of activity on the part
of Delarey is to draw off the troops
pressing De Wet."
A later dispatch says the killed include Lieuts. G.J. Venning and T. P.
W. Neshsm, of the Royal Artillery,
who were both killed while serving
their guns with case shot. As Lord
Kitchener announced that Major
Paris had surrendered and also telegraphed that he had reached Kraaipau
with the remainder of his men, it
would seem that tbe Beers subsequently released the major and his
companions. General Methuen was
wounded in the thigh. Three British
officers and 338 men were killed, aud
five officers and 72 men were wounded.
The Boers captured all the British
baggage. General Methuen is retained as a prisouer.
LONDON STREET RAILWAYS.
London, March 11.—-After many
months of negotiations, Charles T.
Yerkes has- concluded a deal witli the
Raker Stieet-Waterloo railway giving
hitu control of four different underground railways, Mr. Yerkes said
that the four roads would form a system in connection with the Metropolitan district.
ORE SENT TO TRAIL.
Ross'and, March II.—The Centre
Star and War Eagle mines are once
more on the shipping list. Yesterday
four ore cars weie loaded from the
mines aud sent down the hill, making the first installment of ore sent
out since the mines suspended shipments in the summer of last year.
The resumption of shipme nts from
the Centre Star and War Eagle will
probably bring about renewed activity
at the Trail Smelter. The copper furnaces at the Canadian Smelting Works
are dependent in a large measure
upen the Rossland mines for their ore
supplies, and it is for this reason that
the copper section ol the plant has
been closed down for several months.
! D, W. Moore, ore buyer for the smelter, vvas in Rossland yesterday, but he
was not iii a position to state when
the furnaces would be blown in, remarking that much depended on tbe
volume of shipments from this camp,
aud the speed developed in sending
out tbe ore.
Tbe lour cars sent down from tbe
mines yesterday represented a tonnage of something over 100 tons.
Without breaking down any more ore
this daily output could be maintained
for a cou; le of weeks at least, as it is
understood that tbe mines have' more
ti an iooo tons of ore broken down
ready to send out.
ROSEBERY AT GLASGOW.
Glasgow,  March  11.— Lord   Rose-
! hery spoke belore a crowded   meeting
I in St. Andrew's hall  tonight,    lie re-
j ferred to the   Irish demonstration  in
I tbe House of  Commons today, when
tbe reading ol Lord  Kitcheuer,s telegram announcing the capture of Lord
Methuen was greeted by Loud Irish
cheers, as a  fresh indication   of the
impossibility   of   home   rule.     Lord
Rosebery   said   that   Mr.   Gladstone
himself, if he returned from the dead,
could not dare to entrust an independent parliament  to men who openly
rejoiced at a British military disaster

WE WANT TWO MORE REPRESETAT1VES
TO BEGIN RUNNING OVER REPUBLIC
GRAND FORKS LINE.
To the Editor of The Evening Sun.
I was very much surprised to see
that at the meeting of the Associated
Boards of Trade at Kaslo a resolution
was passed asking that the Boundary
country be given but one representative in the local legisture
I have, ever since I have been in the
legislature, been advocating that the
Kettle River Mining Division, with
the possible addition of territory extending to Lake Okanagan, be given
a representative; also that the Grand
ForKS Mining Division be given a
representative.
There is no doubt at all that each of
these rapidly growing divisions should
have representation in the house when
a redistribution bill is brought down ;
and it is too bad that the delegates to
the Associated Boards ot Trade from
these divisions sho«ld have permitted
aiyBich resolution as that which
passed to come before the Associated
Biards. Smith Curtis.
Victoria, March 6,1902.
The resolution relerred to above was
to the effect that Rossland riding be
cut in two and the Boundary be given
immediate representation in the present provincial home. Our honorable
member may rest assured that the
ratepayers of the two mining div sions,
aud the Okanagan lake lerritory, most
heartily endorse his action regarding
his tight for two representatives; iu
fact, Mr. Curtis has been simply voicing the oft expressed wish ot his sup
porters in claims for increased representation. He has in a sense misunderstood the purpose of the Kaslo resolution. It was passed with an eye
single to the present imperative need,
one that should be attended te without
waiting for the outcome of redistribu-
tion legislation. It is fully understood
and believed that upon discussion and
mature consideration and fair conclu-1
sions, the two div.sions referred 10 by |
our honorable member will be accord
ed what is their due fr.nn standpoint
Beginning   tomorrow   morning   a
passenger and  baggage cars will be
run on   schedule  time   between this
city and  St.  Peter's creek, a   point
about twelve miles this   side of  Re-'
public. A stage line is to be established between that point and  Republic,;
to be maintained until such   time as
the railway line is completed into Republic.   This is a  matter worthy  of
mote than a passing note, and when
the line is completed to the terminal
city, there will be a celebration  com- ■
metisurate with the  accomplishment.
W. C. Morris,   the aasistant general
manager,   informs The  Sun  that on I
and after tomorrow, a passenger train
will leave Columbia and Grand Forks
at 7 in the morning, returning at 4 in
the afternoon.

Re^oi trees.
The'cjtv of Columbia is "situated
near the junction of the North Forks
of the Kettle river with the main Kettle river, and is distant about 800
miles east of Vancouver.
The natural situation of the city for
beauty Is not excelled in Ameriea. A
verdure-clad and flower-bespangled
rolling prairie, traversed bv a riverof
bright, sparkling: waier, fringed with
forest trees and surrounded by mountains, forming a charming combination of picturesnuesness and grandeur
The Columbia A Western railway,
which was constructed by the Oanii-
dinn Pacific Railwav company, has its
station, freight warehouse and yards
in the center   of  Columbia,  and the
Vancouver, Victora A Eastern 'Railway company, has located its depot,
freight sheds and yards along the east
line of the 'corporation, thus giving
the city con unctions with two transcontinental lines.
The Canadian Pacifie railway company has large interests in the city,
having selected the site on aooount of
the superior natural advantages as a
rnilwav centre.
The climate, taken all the year
around,'is the best in Canadn—part of
the summer is rather hot and dry, but
the rest of the year is enjovable.
Thr nr'ioiit ths Kittle IJive- vallev
there is an extent of fertile agricultural land, part of which is uow being cultivated.]
Apples, plums, pears, prunes, cherries and all the small fruits grow
abundantly. The valley surrounding
Columbia, divided into small f rnit and
vegetable farms, will sustain a large
population.
Building material is plentiful in the
district. Lumber can be procured at
fair prices, and brick lime and stone
of good finality can always be obtained when required,
The mining interests are of the first
importance to this country, aud will
do much to build up Columbia. Large
mineral lodes have been discovered
through the mountains adjacent to
the city, and what were mere prospects a short time since are now iarge
paying mines.
Water Is supplied the city by pumping from a beautiful spring of excep
tional purity, capable of supplying a
city of 50,000 inhabitants.
The Granby smelter and converter
—the most modern and perfect plant
of the kind in America—employing
hundreds of men, is contiguous to the
city,
Owing to the fine climate, the central situation, the beautible environments, the bright prospects for future
growth and prosperity, Columbia will
be an educational centre, a city of
homes, as well as a wholesale distributing point; and when finally allied
and wedded to her sister sister, will he
