Jan. 15.���������A special despatch  from Cape Town dated Jan. ,12. announces that Gen, Warren has crossed  the Tugel-i River.  _.LoNuoy. Jan. 15���������Th e .tenor . of .the  news driblileofiii from South Africa in  last 4S hours indicates that a combined forward 'movement- of a comprehensive character is proceeding.  Credible information from many different sources also points indisputably  lo momentous changes in the dispositions of tlie Boer foices.  Advices from Pielermaritzburg  dated Jan. 13 says that since their  defeat on Jan. 0th. the Boers have  been removing guns from the position  south of Lailyninith. The same despatch confirms the report that the  13th Hussars have reached Groblers-  kloof without meeting the Boers.  Groblerskloof is perhaps the strongest  position held by the Burghers and its  evacuation astonished the British.  Altogether there is a more hopeful  feeling in official circles.  Gen. French's forces have succeeded  in dragging a fifteen pounder to the  summit, of the steep and rocky Ooles-  kop. a thousand feet above the surrounding plain, and on Jan. 12, successful lp routed the Boers in camp on  'the plain three miles away from  Slerksti'oom.  London, . Jan. 13���������The Standard  gives prominence lo the following,  dated Jan. 13: A man has just arrived  from Springfield and says that the  British column proceeding to the relief of Ladysmith has crossed the.  Little Tugela". When he left, it was  facing the Boer position on the Big  Tugela, and a howitzer was shelling  the Boer trenches. It also says that  270 wagons full of stores for Ladysmith have left Frere Camp, and it  was expected that the column would  join hands with General White on  Monday evening.  Ihe British patrols have discovered  parlies of Boers in the. direction of  Ennersdale between Frere and Est  court.  London, Jan. 10���������A Saturday's do**  patch   to   the   Times   from    .Lorenzo  jNIaiques says:    The Free Slate is now  culling, out; every available,    man  including'tlie trading merchants.  Capetown,- Jan. 15���������There is good  reason to believe that the report thai  Sir Chas. Warren with-11.000 men has  gone towards Weenen is correct and  we may expect some important news  shortly.  S. Smith of Revelstok Station, has  recently purchased the estate of the  late John Iletherington, across the  railroad track near the Big Eddy.  Mr. Smith intends having the property improved next, summer and a fruit  orchard etc. plumed.

Silt: I would have answered your  more than kind telegram of the 8th  before this, but was obliged to leave  town immediately after the election to  take part in the contests decided on  the 14th and 15th respectively, and  from these I did not return until late  Friday night. I wish now., to lhauk  you and ask you to thank the staff of  the ItEVKLHTOKE Heuaid for their  congratulations on the victory which'  the Conservative party gained here.  It was more than kind of you to think  of us, and I can assure you that all  the Conservatives in -Winnipeg lo  whom I showed your telegram were  intenselygratilled by it. I shall now  try lo show them what good government is.  With kind regards  to you and the  other members of the staff, I remain,  Yours faithfully,  Hugh John Macdonald.  ���������   Winnipeg, Dec. 18. 1890.  John D. Sibdald, Fsq.,  Sec. Lib.-Uonservative Association  Revelstoke. B.C.  Sir: Your telegram of ihe 9lh tilt.,  arrived here in due course, but as I  was absent from town attending to  thr parly's interests in other parts of  the province, I did not receive it until  a much later date. My being away is  the only reason why there has been  such along delay in replying lo it, for  1 can assure yoii that I was immensely,  gratified by the kind congratulatioi s  of your Association on the victor>  which our party gained here on tlie  7th all. It was due to the excellent-  organization which we hit, I established  throughout the province, and to tlie  zeal, enthusiasm and energy shown  by our supporters, which carried all  before them and rendered of no effect  the influence and the money of both  the Dominion - and the Provincial  goveruments. Will you kindly thank  the Conservatives of "your flourishing  town on behalf of the" Manitoba Conservatives, and yourself for remembering us in the hour of our victory, and  tell them from us that we trust when  the opportunity arises thev will follow  our example, and carry the Conservative flag again lo the front.  Wishing you arid them the compliments of tlie season.  J remain, yours faithfully.  Hugh John Macdonald.  LADYSMITH    RELIEVED1  So Says a Cablegram to  York Newspapers.  New  DETAILS   NOT   YET   RECEIVED  TROUT LAKE CITY  A Few Little  tal Services-  Eccentricities of the Pos-  -License Commissioners  , Trout Lake Cjty, .Jan. 9���������1 don't  know what the post office department is trying to do with the "mail  service" into this district, ils always  heen bad. even when old timers sent  their mail by anyone going or coming  from Revelstoke, they says they got  it more regularly than now, and at  that time one expected little. But in  the year of grace 1900 we loot*, for  something better than chaos. We  look for a regular service, a time for'  arrival and departure specified, not so  here. It may come or it may not, it  may go or it may not. It may pet-adventure go as far .as Batey's Paik  Hotel lo wait si more convenient season, or it may come to Batey's in the  same way. Its not registering a kick  by any means by writing this, but it  shows how apathetic, even humble we  can become for small blessings bestowed.  Trout Lake is a splendid place to live  in sometimes that is when \\e can get  fresh beef and other luxuries of a like  kind necessary, hut when we have to  wait say three oi* four weeks for such  luxuries the place is not so good to live  in. The last thing I have heard of is  the formation of a resident co-opera-  .tive_combine,-whoare^shipping_lheir_  own beef, mutton, lamb, pork, eggs  and butter from the territories, at a  big saving all round.  I see a paragraph in your issue of the  3rd inst. that T, J. Graliame, J. Kerna-  ghan and A. McRne returned ou Saturday from Trout Lake City where  they held a sitting as the district board  of license commissioners. This is not  quite, correct. A. McRae was in aud  did his work o. k. Messrs. Grahame  and ICcrnaghan were enroute for Trout.  Lake, but met A. McRae about half  w a j' to Thomson's Landing, and returned with him. Give A. McRae the  credit he deserves. A sitting of the  coinmiss*ionei*s was expected and all  the hotel proprietors were on the  ground, but were disappointed as to  the sil ting. What is the use of edging tlie granting of licenses with so  many penalties, so much red tape, and  other lollies, if the. commissioners do  not keep faith with ihe holelkeepers  iu meeting them; and the law strictly  enforced regarding ihe working of  such necessary places. Either keep  the law in ils entirety or let it go, as  we've been'used to it. I don't know  and I don't care who's to blame "for  ihe commissioners not sitting as arranged. It plainly shows,to me how  unnecessary whereas all hotels have  their license and are running as if the  commissioners met. Somebody has lo  pay the piper for these seemingly unnecessary trips.; If ohr commissioners  as in this case can do the business,  why take the others out. seemingly  unwillingly from their business, and  at the public expense '-*  Everything at the  mines  going   on  Terrible Havoc Among: the Boers in the  Assault at Ladysmith on the 6th.��������� The  Free Staters Want to Go Home.,���������  Our Two Big: Railways Come Down  Handsomely.���������Boers Repulsed in a  Skirmish Near Rensberg:.

Despite    misleading,  statements    lo    the    contrary    continually  published   in   Canada and   Great Britain,   public sentiment  here  heretofore  has always been    on the side    of    the  Boers,  both  because    they, constituted  a  so-called  republic,  and  because  of  the  disproportionate size of  the combatants.      Bui this fueling*    has    been  somewhat like that of a man who sees  his  brother    engaged   in    a  fight . of  which  he does  not approve. He would  not be sorry if the   brother got Pretty  well punched    to teach him not to be  so hasty the next time, but he would  also feel much disposed   to take oft his  coat and go in, if there seemed to be  any danger of the brother getting the  worst: of it.

The close relationship,   between this  country and England    was shown  His Personal Autobiography.  "Edgar   "Wilson   Nyo  was    horn   in  Maine, in 1860, August 25, hut at two  years of ago he took his parents by  the hand, and, telling them that Piscataquis  county  was    no    place for  thorn,  ho  boldly   struck    out for  St.  Croix  county,   Wisconsin,   where  the  hardy  young pioneer    soon    made a  home for his paronts.   The flrat year  ho drove the Indians out of St. Croix  valley,  and  suggested  to the Northwestern railroad that it would be   a  good idea to build to St. Paul as soon  as  the company could    get a grant  which would pay them two or three  times tho coat of construction.     The  following   year   he   adopted   trousers,  and made $175 from the sale of wolf  scalps.    Me also cleared 27  acres of  land   and   raised   some   watermelons.  In   1S51   ho established  and  endowed  a school   district in  Pleasant Valley.  It was at this time that ho began to  turn his attention to tho abolition of  shivery  in thu  south,   and    to write  articles for the press, signed Veritas,  in  which  ho advocated    tho war of  IISCO,  or  as  soon   as  the  government  could get around to it.  In 1S55 ho graduated from the  farm and began to study law. Tie did  not advance very rapidly in Ula profession, failing several times In his  examination, and giving bonds for  his appearance at the next term of  court. lie was, however, a close  student ot political economy, and  Istu(lied personal economy at tho  samo time, till ho found that lie could  easily live on 10 cents a day and  his relatives.  Mr. Nyo then began to look around  him   for a new country  to  build  up  and  foster,   and,   as    Wisconsin   had  grown to be so thickly settled in   tho  northwestern part  ot the  state that  neighbors were frequently found less  than five miles apart, he broko loose  from   restraint   and   took     emigrant  rates for  Cheyenne,  Wyoming.  Here  he engaged board at the Inter-Ocean  hotel/and began to look around him  for  a position in a bank.    Not succeeding in  this, he tried    journalism  and law.    He did not succeed in getting a job for some time, but finally  was    hired    as   associate    editor and  janitor of the Ijaramie Sentinel.    The  salary was small, but Mr. Nye's latitude great, and he was permitted to  write anything that he thought would  please the people, whether    it     was  news  or not.  By and by he won every heart by  his gentle, patient poverty and his  delightful parsimony in regard to  facts.

"The Boers had every  advantage in men, munitions and position at ihe outset, and they have, won  a few battles. But Britain's' sea  power will enable her to win in the  end.

A large number of citizen.'' attended  the Hawkins and Uolloway smoker  in the Alexander Hall on Tueseay  evening last, and enjoyed themselves  immensely. Some excellent .singing  was indulged in. and it was with the  greatest ditlieulty that the'audience  kept their seats during the rendering  of a pathetic little ballad entitled "He  Wore a Worried Look."

'He proposes a policy of the  gradual absoi-btion of Canadian railways into the hands of the government  and as a starl he advocates that it  shall "at the earliest, possible moment  obtain possession of and operate a  sufficient proportion of the existing  lines and construct on its own account  such additional railways, as shall be  necessary to give it a determining  voice in the standard of rates and service throughout Canada."

You can call it  radicalism, socialism or an other ism  you like, but it is simple straight business for all that. The people of Canada and its various provinces are til-  ways being promised a business government. What does "business" in  connection with a government mean.  Of course in the first place it is business for a government to expend its  revenues honestly and economically,  meaning by tha latter expression that  value is received for the money,  whether the amount expended be large  or small and that it is not wasted or  lavished on useless projects for party  purposes. This is the very ABC of  government business. But outside of  the actual speeding departments,  what should be the policy of a business  government. It should open up mid  develope the resources of the country.  Here is just where tlie hitch comes in.  Because the sole idea possessed by the  average Dominion or Provincial government politician hitherto has been to  effect this quite sensible and correct  idea by "attracting capital" or in other  words by giving up part of tbe possessions or revenues of tlie nation to  business concerns in order to induce  them to build railways or establish  factories .or start some industry or  other, which will create work and  stimulate activity.

Now this policy is supposed, to add  to the general prosperity of the people. If it did it is 11 curious thing that  the muss of the people are constantly  opposed to it. This is the very feeling which is constantly taken advantage nf by Ihe opponents of the irov-  urnincnt lor the time being by assertions that the ���������-nemhei'S of the  pcoverutnent are standing in with  the monopolies, which they have  fostered mid that even if not  personally benefitted, at nil events  they look to them to supply funds for  the next election campaign. I'eople  that tire discontented are always suspicions. These charges aie believed.  The opposition goes in. But. however  many changes are made, the practical  result remains the'sann'.  Tlie old system of subsidies continues.  Work is provided for the people, it is  true, but.at the lowest terms at which  they can be induced to do it. Transportation facilities are provided, but  the freight rates are Used on no other  intelligible principle except the very  highest rate at which the produce can  he conveyed lo the market and leave a  bare living for tlie producer. The few  are made rich; the mass is left to  struggle on as best it can. And this is  called government on business principles. But calling it business does not  make it business. It is a wasteful,  futile, misdirected system of government, and can never lie any thing else.  The l>u-iinc-&s of the government is not  to ci-i'iil e and foster methods of accumulating wealth for the few, but to  dilTiiM? n.general comfort, contentment  and prosperity among the whole.
