Several large sales of properties'on White Fisli creek and  that vicinity has attracted the  attention of mining to the possibilities of that section. It 'is  not alonen on "White ,Fish 'creek  but on other tributaries of the  St. Mary's there are deposits of  mineral vast.in extent, this mineral is said to, be of low-grade  find can only, be > made available  when <t railroad penetrates.

No doubt it has hit a' good  many speculators in margins; but  it has never been demonstrated  successfully that speculators in  margins are a great source of  stronsth to any industry.'  Shipping Ore From tlie North Star.  Harry Drew came in from  Kimberley on Wednesday. Mr.  Drew says that trains are arriving every day and-talcing out ore  from the North Star.' On -Tuesday three ^cars of ore were shipped out, and as soon as the Iram-  -way is 'running smoothly 100  tons of ore'.will be shipped daily.

While no assays have  been taken during this work, Ihe  appearance of the quartz is  better   than^ that  from  which  the  former assays of $40, !j\>0 and $70  were returned.

The claims   were   located  last May.  There is considerable work  planned for the further development of the big properties on  Boulder creek. It is> rumored  that the machinery has been  purchased and will be on the  ground in the course of a few  weeks. This means thai the  Dupont a'hd Big Chief will be  worked this summer for till there  is in them.

The company will build ore  bins at the siding in Kimberley,  and soon as they aro completed  ore shipments will - commence.  There is a large amount of ore  of shipping grade now, ou the  dump, and there will be nothing  to inlerfcre with continuous  shipments.

March I .--By  heliograph to (Jolenso.���A portion of the forces of General  Duller, headed by Dundonald  Horse, a full force of Natal carbineers, and seven companies of  other regiments, among them a  few Dublin fusileers, and Lancashires reached this city and  raised the siege.  They came via Ihe road across  the Klip river and' ea.->t of Coa-  sar's Hill. Rumors yesterday  morninir brought in the infor-  matioii'lhat General Buller expected lo relieve the garrison  within twenty -four ��� hours, , and  consequently the rejoicing ./was  great. ; General White made  preparations to salley out and  aid the advance of the British  troops if necessary."'  Dundonald'with his troop of  horse was sent out on a scouting  expedition to the west, and rec-  onilered all .night. On 'Wednesday morning he reported that he  could reach Ladysmith. , A few  Fusileers aud .Lancashires. with  several' other' companies were  placed under his command; They,  had little- difficulty in making  their way through ravines,  around-hills to the south west of  city.      , *  Their arrival was hailed \\.itlr  joy by the b'esioged.r   ���'" '<' 7" .  At first it was thought,, that  they we're'the advance guard of  General Bullcr's main force, but  this', wits "-not so, it is-expec'tecl  that' Buller"s main column will  reach herd tonight or lomorrow.  London, March ' 1.���General  Bulleri-wir'es from'.Ne'thrope, un-  der"today's date that he has just  returned from Ladysmith. The  whole country around that place  is cleared.of the Boers.  ' The Boers have not made any  demonstration from Buhvanathis  morning and il is doubtful if  they arc aware of the entrance  of Dundonald into Ladysmith.  Dundonald came first in line.  We were in desperate straits I'or  water to drink, and fevers of  various kinds were making sad  havoc among the members of our  brave garrison, who have stood  so gallantly against the Boers  for four months, less onerday.  The Boers have retired in  gr^eat numbers from the country  surrounding Ladysmith, for according lo Dundonald's report,  the hills that were occupied by  the enemy to the southwest were'  bare of Boers yesterday.  Dundonald reports that when  the Lancashires charged Pielers  Hill Tuesday they overtook the  Boers Hying from their trenches  and bayonettod thenr. Sixteen  of the lleeing mon were killed and  twenty-three wounded.' - The  Boers after the capture of Piel-  or\s Hill by Barton with the Dublin fusileers and two ball aliens of  the sixth division, seem to have  faded away, there was no general retiring observable, but they  simply disappeared as the British advanced.  Grobler's kloof was abandoned  by the Boers, and Lyttleton  pushed forward his men. and  their road seems to be lairly  clear.  Ladysmith Relieved.  SlM-l-Ull Ml TllK I'KIISPKOTOK.  London, March 1 .���The war  office has received the following  dispatch from General Buller:  -'Lytton's Headquarters, Gen  eral Dundonald with the Natal  carbineers, and a composite regiment entered Ladysmith last  night.

Buller's success came] after  hard fighting of Friday; and its  mprovision and execution began  during the" armistice of Sunday.  In preparing the'armistice the'  British commander stipulated  that both sides should be.free'to  niove.ubut that'neither should do  any shooting, he was therefore  within his privilege in immediately beginning to transfer his  troops., General Buller's tidings  came weighed with his long list  ctoualities.?...'His Josses .iu ,lhe  four aftemp'ts to get General  W h i 1 e o u I 'agg,rega l'e .-1.000.

' The Boers  then resumed a-furious musket  fire on thc British left.' Thc attack was repulsed.  Fighting continued vigorously, and we shall see who can  stand --bucketing" best, the Briton or the Boer. Mr. Churchill  goes on lo say that there is  abundant proof of the Boers  using a 'large proportion of illegal bullets, no fewer than five  kinds of - exploding ^ and  expanding bullets having  been found. He also asserts  that the Boers are employing  armed Kaffirs.

''  Melbourne, Victoria, March  1.���Mr. Chamberlain cable.s Aus-  tralian government asking if  they would be able to send additional troops to South Africa  in event of Imperial troops be  ing requirecljelsewhere.   ��  London, March 1.���Lord Roberts' stragetic combination has  involved the i;elief of Ladysmith  as ultimate result after the siege  of Kimberley had been raised  and Cronje's army captured.'  His campaign was a . masterly  study of the dynmatics of war.  His army corps of 50,000 men,  was massed where it -was not expected and where; the enemy was  weakest.  , The ell'ect of  this   manoeuver  was' to draw off a portion ot  the  Dutch(forces from   Natal  where  they   were strongest   and  were  paralyzing the  activities' of 'the  two    British  armies.   '  General  Buller was 'enabled to' clear i'lho  southern .bank of the Tngola and  after   hard   fighting    to .'break  through     tlio      Dutch    ' defensive lines and relieve Ladysmith.  Meanwhile    General    Clement's  forces, after falling back  before  a large Dutch army,  .which  had  concentrated in the wrofig quarter,   has   reoccupied iRenesberg  and taken Colesberg.     The  entire situation has been   transferred in the course of three weeks  by scientific strategy based upon  the distribution of forces against  the lines of least resistance. The  energy  with    which    Clement's  column was pushed forward from  Arundel seems to corroborate the  report that  Kitchener' has   been  senl south with,  special  instructions.  There is no further news from  Paardeberg.  In Nebraska L000 rough riders  want fo serve with the British  in SoutU Africa.

President   Steyu   and   Commandant  Botha Urging- Kruger to Sue  I for Peace.  ' London,' Feb. :!().���The war  office publishes tlie following  from General Roberts: ���  ,  Paardeberg-, Feb. i'l.���Parties  of Boers recently arrived from  Natal attacked our outposts in  force again yesterday.  They lost a good  many   killed  zMMl/wouuded,   and   nearly   iDO  f>.i-.iso.uers. including' a command-  anl and tliree field cornets.'   Our  carnalities    are     four     officers  wounded and two   men  missing.  On the -Island il'nd one  officer  and thirteen men were wounded.  The Lorenzo Marque/',  correspondent of the  Times  says   the  feeling iu official circles at   Pre-  foria borders  on  consternation.  '    /Commandant   Botha  and   President   Steyu    are    botli    urging  President   Kruger   to   sue   for  peace.    At BioemfonteinCronjes  position is regarded as hopeless.  The Times publishes  the  following from Colenso dated Saturday:      "Tlie    British ' are, now  within   two  miles   of   being   in  touch with Ladysmith.  but  the  s��round still to b<' covered is the  .Fiardest part and severe fighting  ���  muni be expected.  Paardeberg. Orange Free  , Slate, Feb/i!:-5.��� The British are  gradually closing in upon General Cronje from all sides and making the position more impossible  fJran ever. ' During the course of  last' night British artillery pour-  ��d infscveral rounds.1' A terrible  rain and thunder storm'raged in  idle evening. The British toolc  eighty prisoners as- a result of  ..today's engagement.  A   balloon  ascended and   dis-  ,     covered several new works which  1   'the British guns  shelled  today.  General Cronje is  reported  to  �� .   have good cover from tlie British  artillery; 'lire and  has consider-  ..   able provisions  but   is  running  short of ammunition    -  -The ofourth '��� day', of   General  Cronje's   tine  defence  began - in  startling fashion soon afterdawn.  ,A rattle of rifle tire wakened the  sleeping camp.    Il soon developed that the  Gloucester'and  Es-  sexs  regiments  had   lost,,their  ���way  and  bivouacked, . in  error,  close to the Boer laager .-on   the  north side of the river. The enemy  i'usiladed.   but  the   British, casualties  were   practically   noiie.  General  French   advanced   in  a  far    easterly   direction   near   a  kopje held by Cronje's   men   reinforced by a Ladysmith contingent, at the same  time General  Broadwood's   brigade,    with    a  battery   of    artillery    took    up  1 position     to      the       left     and  rear    of     same      kopje.     , the  ��� front of the hill was thoroughly"  searched by a raking tire.    Sud-  >   denly   the < Boers    bolted    from  wither     side    towards    General  .French, who headed towards the  drift, shelling vigorously. Many  were  killed   by'  shrapnel,   and  about forty'were  captured'.      A  '   .British' doctor   who   visited   the  Jioer line  to  see   the  wounded,  found    the   trenches   along   the  river, full of wounded, and   saw'  many dead.    Tlie position today  Ts practically unchanged.  The Boer prisoners are all depressed .at the present course of  ��Jie war, and they comment bitterly on 'General Cronje's persistence which they call murder.  It is stated' Cronje refuses to  allow Hie women and children in  his laager a safe conduct. -  All efforts made by Boers from  Natal   to   relieve  have ended in  failure.

The crowds  in the gallery shouted and cheered,    the    Opposition    'members  pounded their desks and,, cheered  wildly, and the  beaten  Government members shouted all' manner of questions and   statements  across the  Jloor  of  the  House,'  groups of six or seven speaking  at once.     Pandemonium reigned  supreme. ' Then when the latter  day   Tower  of  Babel   was  in a  measure nearing a calmer  state,  the Premier moved  an  adjournment until   Tuesday  next, when  the   Government  will   make   an  announcement    of   their   in ten-.,  tions,���and'   what    intention    is  left open tp them?   ��� _ -  Thus ended  the  noisiest  and  morst*disgraceful  sitting.of  the  session,,for before the  fatal   de'-  bate began,' there was an uproar  such as was seldom seen'^in, any  such deliberative body.     It was  when   Mr.' Neil,', (Alberni,). called JD. H.'Eberts,  (South   Victor;  ia,) "a liar", that the uproarious  scene came to a focus.  ', The addressed   member   promptly   invited   the  big man from  Alber-  ni ' 'to come  outside and  repeat  it if he dare", and then there was  a wild period.  The row was   the  outcome  of  that, of yesterday  between   the  two   in ember.     Neil  rose   to   a  question of  privilege  immediately after prayers, and cpioling a  report of the proceedings in  reference to his alleged disloyal utterances, said he did   not object  to his private utterances  being  made public if they were not distorted.     He was willing to take  oath that neither directly or  in-  directly had he used the  reiiiark  attributed to him. ' He moreover  had not been a lip-loyal   patriot,  but being practical, had given to  patriotic funds,  and  in   by-gone  years had been a soldier himself.  Concluding, he asked  Eberl.s   to  take his remark back.  Eberts in reply, said:      "Take  nothing back."  the hon. gentleman     was    continuing    in    untruth."     Neil   then   asked   the  Speaker   to   lake   down   those  words.   Eberts continued drowning what the Speaker and a number of other members were  saying.      He reaffirmed  his   statements  that  Neil  had  made the  disloyal   remark  complained   of  "that   the    loss    of "-"Canadians  would lake  some  of  the  heady  patriotism out oftheni:, "Eberts  said lie told him Tie ought  to  be  ashamed of himself. .      :  '   ��� "���You'rea liar," shouted Neil,  half rising.  .   ".'Just.come outside and.���repeat-  that," yelled Eberts, "I dareyon  to'V .' . "A :���'    .  The Speaker then   asked  Mr.  Neil   to   withdraw  the remark.  deference to the official' position  of the Speaker, he would do  so.  Then there was another   uproar,  and  when  able  to  make  themselves       heard,       , Mr.        Neil  asked that Mr.  Eberts be   made  to   withdraw   the  -remark  'that,  ���'he was,continuing in, untruth'".'  Eberts said that he would apologize to the House  with  the  exception   of  Mr.   Neil.,'   Several  other  speakers  then  addressed  the House on the  matter.   Prentice holding that the apology of  Eberts was sufficient,' aud Martin'  calling on the Speaker t'o make a  ruling.    In the  interim' 'several  members of the ,Opposition   had  gathered 'around ��� Mr. :<��� Eberts  deslr'to pacifv him.  , Th'ey'vore  successful i'or he soon- rose   and  asked-leave to withdraw his   remarks.     .Thus the incident clos.-'  ed, and the debate on lhe"redis-  tribution. bill'began which ended  the Government's life.'  ,  After  a  number  of' members  had spoken, Hall moved the previous question a"nd on division the  Government were defeated by a I  straight yote of 10 to IS.   Then a\  wild demonstration ensued.  that made Great Britain victorious in the Crimea, India and  Afghanistan had' passed away  from her.  ��� The circumstances of his hurried departure, when he subordinated the greatest ��� personal  sorrow to the needs,of the country, his feats on the , battlefield  of old. his tremendous personal  magnetism, and his surpassing  kindliness and simplicity, are all  brought into rapid 'review by  means of conversation, or '"the  newspapers before the average  Emrlishinah.

Mines.  Mines are tlie .subterranean  treasuries of nature in which thc  Oi'niniscient Uoing lias deposited  ;i portion of his bounties to be  developed und u^ed by intelligent men. Mining, improved to  its utmost extent, is , an art iu  which all.the lights of sciences,  all the capacity and diligence of  ,iiian Iind their application. Jn  the Dominion of Canada, mining  operations are of too recent0 an  origin lo present any of the  master-pieces, in the art. Lt requires ages, tin: lapse Of centuries to develop such subterranean  structures as.can be found in the  old world, in Mexico and the  United States.  An extensive subterranean  mine is a grand and curious  structure, and possesses many  beauties which are understood  only by the initiated. These  cannot be made tlie subject of!  panoramic views like the lerre.s- >  Fort Steele as a Pleasure Resort  With the, completion of the new  hotel their will be a rush of tourists to Port Steele this summer.  There is no spot in the Rocky  Mountain region so favored.  Now mountain climbers can exercise themselves in attempting  to reach the summit of Mount  Fisher. It i.s only '.IlTiO above  the level of the sea. and it is  said the foot of man has never  trod its summit. There are 'no  more beautiful drives than in the  vicinity of Fort Steele. There  is a navigable river llowing past  the town., and this summer a  boat will be built for excursion  parties. Strangers who have  never visited mining camps will  have in this vicinity a chance to  see active work in quartz, and  placer mines within a few miles  of town. Fort Steele is the oldest town in the district, and in  the early (ids there were thousands of people here taking.gold  from the bod of Wild Horse  creek.  Fort Steele is   an   ideal   spot.  This Steel is guaranteed to be equal to Jessop's or,, Firths in all  Hard "Rock -Work. {      ".? -      ; ~ -t ^ \ ' ' .: : ~ ���.:      '    ���   '���'  sox.E As��� Grow's Nest Goal- company ...
