The Great Mica Deposits to the Norjh  of Revelstoke.���������An Extensive Area of  High Grade Crystals, Which Produce  Mica Sheets-, of Large Size. Great  Transparency and High Heat Resis-  ance.  Across   through   fine    valleys   and  magnificent  scenery,   the   trail    continues   to   the    old    historic   Indian  village   of  Tete   Jaiine  Cache.     The  glory of this old trapping and  Hudson  Bay  centre   has   long   departed,  but  attention is returning to it, by reason  I of the discovery of large deposits of  the finest mien, known by the Indians  and trappers for many  years to  exist  in the mountains,  bub the extent  of  which is undetermined.    Exploration;,  recently,    undertaken     through    the  'energy, in the first place of the late  Victor   Gtiillaume,  and subsequently  through Mr. John T. Smith, show they  embx*ace   an   area   of   some   20 miles  running in a southeasterly to a. northwesterly direction, with a dip to the  west.      Development work  has also  been prosecuted with a view  to   the  qualitytind size ol" the crystals.-    This  work has proven  highly  satisfactory,  and     crystals   in   blocks   have    been  secured,     weighing   from   25   to'   SOD  pounds, - This   being   surface,  work.  however,     the   percentage   of    clean  crystals  was   not  as   high   as   what  might   be   reasonably   expected  at a  greater depth.    The yield can be fairly  set down1 as one in eight.     Eight tons  of rough mica will priiduce one  ton  of  clear    merchantable     mineral,    Last  'summer four men mined three  tons in  eleven working days, from  which 050  pounds of mineral,  split and  cut to  sizes  were,  shipped   tint,  ranging  in  size from 2x4 to 10x15 inches..   As the  demand for this mineral is increasing  with the advance in* electricity.' these  deposits bid fair to  beconis tin  active  factor     in   the   mica   market.-   Tests  made of the mica a few  months  back  showed   that   -it     contained  greater  transparency with higher ..heat  r'esist-  'ance than tiny mica on  tlio  market.���������  Province. - '  Is Still Unknown and No Official  News Has Been Published  NOTHINC NEW AT COLESBERG  Report of the Bombardment of Lady- -  smith Denied By the Daily Chronicle -  Correspondent.���������Orange, Free State  Officials Preparing to Evacuate Bloem-  fontein.���������Reported Attack on a Dutch  Cruiser By a British Warship in  Delagoa Bay.

London, Jan 8���������The   first  account  giving any explanation of Bullet-'-* defeat at Tugela lust  month   comes'by  mail from Betinet, the Daily Telegraph  correspondent.     It appears  that  the  battle orders were drawn   up by  Gen.  Clery, who provided for an   effective  support  of  tlie  artillery  hy   Hart's,  Barton's  and   Dundonald's    brigades.  These orders were   never  completed.  Hart missed his way, Dundonald failed to support unci Barton  got part of  his force in   an    untenahle   position.  Col. Long with tho artillery outpaced  the escort ot his guns and  they  were  lost.    Briefly   that 'seems   to   be   the  story'of Tugela Kiver.   The ' correspondent s-iys that at 0:25   there  suddenly burst an awful   cuish   of   Boer  musketry upon the batteries and, infantry.   Tlie   rattle   of   the   Mausers  swelled and  was   maintained   as  one  continuous roar.   From the buildiniss |  unci the line of trenches sooth   of the'  river and from the  river bank   itself  the Boers fired at our  gunners and  footmen and from the ..trenches on the  northern side of the Tugela Kiver and  from  Fort Wilie and elsewhere sent  out ii hurricane of leaden hail and the  bullets  venomously rained  upon  the  ground iu all directions,  raising puffs  of dust and  tearing through  the air  with   shrill   sounds.   Few   have ever  seen no heavy unci deadly  a fusilnde.  The  cannon    wheeled   into position  although many horses and men  were  shot, ere the iiiimneuvi-es were r.tiui-  "pleted.

', ^Nominations" for City Council.   .  Proceedings at the city clerk's office  on   Monday during   the   nomination  were quiet but interesting.      It looked  at first as if the  whole council   would  be elected  by acclamation   and    the  only, contest will he, between  F.  Mc-  Carty and A. N. Smith for the mayoralty.* -But a hitch occurred in Wajd 3.  John   Ahriiha'mson  and   S. Needham  were, duly nominated for the ward;  but  the. city , solicitor decla"red that  Mr. Needham could not qualify.   ,_The  only    piece  . of   registered  property  owned hy him being assessed at S000  and,there being a, registered   encim-  byatice against it.sufficient to bring  the value of-his .unencumbered registered property, below the $500 mark,  Mr.   Needham   could   not   run.   This  being explained to the re.sidents*of No.  3 ward present, and us time was drawing short, it was a case  of hustle  to  get a man.    Some  of them went, for  C, Holten, others ran in search . of Mr.  Needham,   and   iu  the   meanwhile it  was arranged hy those  remaining in  the   office that T. J. .Graham  should  leave Ward 2 to  'W. S. Needham  and  come out for Wnrd 3.    Time drew on.  Mr. Needham appeared and was h'ud  to convince.    Mr. Holten  came in  at  the last  minute  too late  to   get the  necessary   papers nia"de-"ouK-r"At^the  very last Mr. Needham  refused  point  blank to withdraw,  the consequence  being that a contest will be required in  Ward 3, us well as for the mayoralty.

Already more than      0000  men  havo  been  heard  from, and .the minister's  mail   gots    heavier    every    day.     It  may   he   that   many  who   went  Willi  tho first expedition did not expect u>  fight.    But  Uiose who now  apply   do  so with the lull knowledge that they  are ottering- thoir lives tor the maintenance  of  the  power  o������  Britain   in  South   Africa.       Tho     minister   who  fists,  "What has Canada to  do with  the   affairs   of  Africa?"  has  his   answer in bushels and bushels of letters  which  are  accumulating    in  the  department  of   militia  and  overflowing  into the corridors and threatening to  bury the clerks    under    a mound of  stationery.      They  come from  Canadians who think they have everything  to do with every part of the empire  which needs assistance.    Mr. Tarte is  not  quite  so   profuse  with  his rhetorical  questions as he has been.  He  also is learning his lesson.   But he is  still  ablo  to   explain  to  his compatriots that  the  Canadian  government  waited   until   the   last   of  the   other  colonies were- to the front,  and  that  while  sho  is   doing something,  it  is  relatively   less   than   the  others,   and  much less than tho .English speaking  Canadians  wanted lo do.  made Bpecial arrangements for Mr.  Healy's arrival. When the train rolled into the station bands of music  were waiting, and an escort headed  by Parnell himself waited on tho  platform. After a moment's delay the  train started again, but among the  passengers, who alighted Mr. ileaiy  could not be found. Just as the delegation headed back for the town, a  tall, fresh-faced man rushed up to  Parnell and grasped  his hand.  "I'm here,' he said. "You've hold  the meeting off for me, I suppose?  "We postponed the meeting," returned the Irish leader wiiu frigid  politeness, "for Mr. Timothy Michael  Healy, of the County-of Louth.''  "That's all right. I'm not '.liin  Healy. Im only Bill Healy of the Irisn  Time3,. If I'd got beaten, on this  Parnell meeting I'd been fired, so 1  wired. I suppose,' he added, 'you're  a bit annoyed because I'm not a  member of Parliament?"  "Well, Healy," returned Parnell,  ���������'I am ������ little, but 1 must admit mat  if you were a member you would  make a good one.' .  COMPANY.  H^art pflice, Toronto.

The minister of the interior has  only one explanation t������ offer for the  collapse of his party and his cause  in Manitoba. He says it was due to  lack of organization. If Mr. S-'iflon  means that it was due to disorganization and general disaffection lie is  probably right. If be refers to want  of ordinary campaign  ments he admits  own part. Mr. Sifton spent wesks in  Manitoba preparing the people for  the contest. It was only when he  and the local government had satis-  fled themselves that all was ready  that they issued the writs giving the  shortest possible notice to the other  Bide. Mr. Sifton' statement is al30 a  confession of weakness in his department. A brigade of the officers  of the interior department operated  in the campaign as electioneers. They  canvassed: They made election cr-  rangements. They performed the  duties assigned in Ontario to Mr.  Preston's threshing machine. One of  them was arrested for bribing electors. Whether they can be connected  with the alleged attempt to "switch"  votes remains to be seen. The general impression is that Mr. Sifton is  too modest. His organizaion work  waa up to the highest machine standard. Only the people of Manitoba ic-  fused to be organized according to instructions.  Sir Wilfrid seems also to have contributed an organizer. About the  time that Mr. Itussell, the London,  solicitor for the Dominion, went to  Rome and made his representations  to Cardinal Rampolla, papal secretary  of state, on behalf of the premier, Sir  Wilfrid sent a political friend to Manitoba from Quebec. Sir Wilfrid caused his counsel to inform the Vatican  that only the first instalment of justice had been rendered to the Roman  Cahollcs In Manitoba, but that others  would be paid. It seems that the  ' political gentleman from Quebec was  instructed to make a payment; for  Mr. Greenway at once gave hint a  position as superintendent or inspector with power to deal with schools  in the French and Roman Catholic  districts.  It  is  said  that  the school  law has  been   virtually   set aside in some of  those  places.      When   the  late  campaign began the duties   of   this   officer  became  entirely  political.      He  went  around the French speaking districts,  and    ignoring    Greenway    altogather,  told the people they    must vote   for  Laurier, and he would  gee that they  had   their    own  schools.      It  is said  that as election day approached he invited the teachers of those schools to  take a holiday and go around the i-is-  tricts explaining to the people that It  was necessary for them    to    etipport  Mr.   Laurier.  Those efforts are said to  be rather effective.   At all events the  Quebec     organizer    of    Sir     Wilfrid  boasts thst not  10  per    cent of    tho  French  people    in    Manitoba    voted  Conservative.    It  will  be  remembered  that the election in the riding of  Dauphin   was  deferred     for   a   week.  The  educational  official  from  Quebec  'i-UBhednntc^D-auphin and   spent   the  interval   in   that   constituency,  where  there is a considerable voto.whlch he  was  expected   to   influence,  and  with  which he was apparently    successful.  But in spile of all Greenway must go.  He is said to be packing up previous  to bis departure for Ottawa ���������vhero he  will engage in the work of reforming  the Senate.  OUR SOLDIERS PAY.  When Parliament assembles next  month Sir Charles Tuppor will without delay move that the members of  the Canadian contingent who arc  now serving in South Africa as well  as tho men who are now leaving for  tho front shall be maintained and  paid by Canada, and not, as they ar*;  at present, bo chargeable to the  home government. Tho leader of the  opposition has already announced his  intention, but the present indication.-;  are that the government will endeavor  to rehabilitate themselves in the eyes  of the country by anticipating his  action.  The policy of Sir Charles has already been adopted with regard to  the offering of the first coniingent.  Sir Wilfrid was forced to artopt il  again in the offering of a second  contingent, 'so that it is not at ail  unlikely that he will go a step further and humbly aiuept the advice  of Sir Charles with regard to the payment of the men. He has already  gone so far as to agree that t^e pay  of the regulars and Mounted Police  shall be continued at the current rales  while they are serving abroad, 'ihe  Canadian rate of pay being higner  than the Imperial rate, it is mnounc-  ed that the men are to be continued  on the higher scale, the home government contributing a shilling a day,  and the Canadian government tue balance.  The government, is therefore today  committed to the partial payment .,r  a part of the Canadian forces whiic  serving in South Africa. Every self-  respecting Canadian however fecls  that Canada should not only supply  the men, and help to pay some of  them, but that she should undertake  to pay them all.  This is a matter which Sir Wilfrid  will have to decide between Air.  Tarte and his disciples on the one  side and the loyal and patriotic  peopleof Canada on the other.  Tho report that Mr. Tarto and Sir  llonry Joly  aro about to retire from  the cabinet is given in some journals  friendly to the government. There is  reason to believe that Sir Henry will  bo  crowded   out.    He  is  a  line   old  gentleman   who   was   never  suspected of a disposition towards ooociling.  For this  reason,  perhaps, he has no  influence and no pull.   Ho is French,  but he is not a Roman Catholic, and  Mr. Tarte, when he speaks in Quebec  of   the   French   element   in  the   cabinet always omits the name of Joly.  It is suggested  that Sir Henry Joly  may be made speaker of the -senate,  and that his place will be filled by  ihe appointment of a Tarte man.   Mr.  Tarte is in bad health.    If he steps  out it will be because he Is not physically  strong    enough    to    stand  the  strain.   But   in   any   case  his   retirement will only be temporary, in case  he regains strength.      It  is possible  that he  may go to France  as high  commissioner,  or  chief  commissioner  ���������lor Canada at the exposition returning next summer in time to organize  the  campaign.    Sir Wilfrid will   not  go to the country without Mr. Tarie  if he can help it.   The next best man  is Mr.  Pacaud   of  Baie dos    Chaleur  railway   famet,   the     man    who   got  5100,000 in cold  cash  for the use of  hia influence  with   the  Mercier   government in securing the payment to  Mr.   Armstrong   of   a  $175,000   claim.  A man who can get    a 57 per cent  commission   for   collecting   an   non-  est  debt  from    a  government  musi  have rare gifts.   Hitherto Mr. Pacaud  has been a party organizer for Quebec  city   and   district  only.      If  Mr.  Tarte retires he will be promoted.  .NCORPO RATED 16TO.

Feed and Sale Stable of the Lardeau unci Trout Lake  ROBERT SAMSON  -T-KIZT^RTNG-  Oneo more the ministers havo  yielded to the patriotic demand of  the Canadian people, and are preparing for the dwpatch of the second contingent to Africa. Yet the  government does not allow Itself to  be carried away by" over enthusiasm.  In response to the demand that S0������0  Canadians shall be allowed to go the  government decides to organize a  force of 1050." Tho" -tame old conditions are made as to pay. From the  date of the arrival of the corps in  Africa, the soldiers are to bo paid by  the^horne government. Until 'they,  arrive the Canadian government will  pay them the rate allowed to the permanent force. In other words the  C.O.D. arrangement under which the  first, corps was shipped is repeated.  It is understood that Mr. Tarte has  renewed bis fight against Canadian  interference in the foreign wars of  England. Ho seems to have failed in  so far as he attempted to prevont the  organization of a second corps, but  he has been successful in the effort  to stop the payment of the men of  Canada at tho moment of their landing in Africa. Mr. Tarte- and those  who agree with him. were also able  to cause tho finance minister to withdraw from the arrangement about to  bo mode for tho insurance of the  lives of the men at the expense of  the government By this achiove-  jnent the relatives of two volunteors,  who have died since the corps went  *way, have been deprived of the sum  of $1000, which would,have been payable In each case.  While Mr. Tarte allows the second corpe to be raised, ho may find  Borne satlEfaction in the fact that  Australia, with less population than  Canada, aria a third less military establishment. Is sendinc more thin  double the force that Canada sends.  ���������_"Of course," says a .wxttnr, in ihr,.  Ladles' .Home Journal, "everybody  knows that tho 20th cunttiry: will begin on Tuesday, January 1st, lPul."  No, everybody does not know that  though everybody Khotild.

The feminine world of Hamilton has  been shaken from centre to foundation, says the Hamilton Spectator,  and all because of oiie poor son of  Adam, who Is afflicted with a propensity to snore. Poor fellow! He .has  Oeen discussed at every social club of  which his wife is a member, and, indeed, lie has not escaped the prayerful consideration of the home and foreign missionary society. A sorrowing  young wife complained to her sisurs  in confidence that her life's happitit-ss  ivas being wrecked, and that for many  ���������one and weary nights her eyeg had  aot known , siumber. Her husband  anorud in his sleep, and he was so  Perverse in nature that he denmd  the soft impeachment, and even hurled back at her the baseless charge  that it was her own nasal bugle that  mounded "lights out."

And the worst  of it was that when he came home  into from the lodge ho would snore the  loudedt and mutter in his sleep about  "kittles" and "Jackpots," "full-houses"  and "straights," till sho becmiio alarmed  lent  he  was losing  his  mind.

When sweet little cherubs  would come to bless their home, how  would it be possible to hush them  to sleep when the paternal nasal bugle  would be sounding loud "enough to  blow down the walls of Jericho. .

The demand for the Ferguson edition  of the Revelstoke.

Dr. Paget announced last Sunday  that the bishop of the diocese has  named P-tlrn Smiday, April 8. as the  date of his visitiatinn of St. Peter's. He  will administer the rite of c'onflrnia-  t.ion on that date.

The Kootenay teachers convention  . for 1900, which was to have heen held  in Rossland early this month has heen  postponed until April and will be held  at the same time as the provincial  teachers' association is in session at  Victoria.

At the opening of his  speech the Lieutenant-Governor referred in glowing terms to the outburst of Imperial patriotism which  the present war has evoked in every  portion of the Empire and further  transmitted a note, for the consideration of the house proposing that  British Columbia otter a company of  mounted men with transportation to  the point of embarkation for service  with the Canadian contingent in the  Transvaal. This message was put in  the form of a motion hy the premier  and seconded by the leader of the  opposition and carried unanimously.  This is the first offer of the kind made  by any province and in making it  British Columbia has set an example  to her sister provinces, which is likely  to he followed. The Dominion authorities, though they have done  excellent work in organizing the two  Canadian contingents, are likely to  find the enthusiasm of the province  outstrip their somewhat limited ideas  of the duty of the Dominion in this  great struggle for empire.

Among the unexpended items in the  public accounts for this year the sum  of ,$3918.23 figures opposite the item of  Road���������Revelstoke to canyon of Columbia river. This is the amount which  should have been spent on the completion of the canyon wagon road and  which owing to Mr. Kellie's efforts  was not spent. It wns not spent because Mr. Kellie professed to think  that it would be better for the. district  if the amount was utilized to build  trails in the Big Bend. He persuaded  a number of people in town to vote  against havingthnt money put into the  completion of the wagon road on this  very plea. He, pledged himself that if  the wagon road was not completed  this money should he spent on building and .extending -trails in the. Big  Bend district. He told the board of  trade that he had received a distinct  promise from Mr. Cotton that if this  appropriation was not expended on  completing the wagon road it, should  be expended on the trails. It is impossible to get at the facts of the case  from the public works report, whether  this was done or not. But considering  to what an extent Mr. Kellie has  pledged hoth himself and the government, which he supports, that it  should bedone, it seems to the Herald  that it would be now in order for him  to make :i statement throwing some  light on the matter. The columns of  the IIf.ka.ld are always open to Mr.  Kellie whenever lie. wishes to give his  constituents any information on this  subject.
