Jan. 18.-Gen. Buller has  completely surprised the Boers and  occupied the hills beyond Potgiesters  drift, 15 miles west of Colenso. He  shelled the Boer trenches. This completely disposes of the statement that  Wait-en's forces went in the direction  of Weenen. The news greatly restores  confidence in Buller's tactic'H.

London, Jan. 18.���������The Standards  ���������iccount of the assault upon Ladysmith  shows that the garrison .were surprised, and that several times the  situation was critical. Out of 30  Gordon Highlanders, who surrendered,  every man was wounded. This is the  first"mention of the capture of any  Highlanders. The Boer repulse at  Ladysmith was the heaviest counter-  stroke of the war. '  London. Jan. 18.���������A despatch, dated  Ladysmith, ,Ian. 16. by way of Frere,  Jan. 17th, say.-: The enemy today  made a determined effort to capture  our two positions at Caesar's Camp,  and the wagon hill. Caesar's Camp  was held hy the first battalion of the  Manchester regiment. In the early  hours of the morning the Heidelberg  commando succeeded in evading our  pickets and making thuir way tluough  the thorn bush, reaching tbe foot of  the slope tit half past two. The alarm  was raised hy our sentries, but before  the danger was realized, our outlying  pickets' had been rushed and the  defenders slain. On hearing the firing  two companies of tlie Gordon Highlanders went to the assistance of the  Manclu'slers. At lirst it was thought  that the. Boers were, concentrating on  the southern slope, hut their advance*  were stopped by the ste-idy volleys of  our. infantry and the deadly tire of our  automatic guns. '     .

The Boers Hied two shots and then retreated their fotces to the trenches,  the passage of the river being uninterrupted. -        The British advanced in skirmishing  order and tlie small kopjes on the summits were occupied by 0:30 p. in. During the night it rained heavily. Yes-  tt-rday the Buer trenches were vigorously shelled in front of Mount Alice  while the British remained iu possession of the  kopjes and plains.    Heavy  mists-en veloped^t he hills    but ..the  naval guns and howitzer battery made  good practice, thoroughly searching  the trenches. On the Boer right 11  breach was inadu in the sand bank  emplacements, where it is 'supposed  the Boer guns had been placed. The  cannonading was heavy and continuous. The Boers were observed leaving  thu trenches in small parties. The  hill facing the British* position was  shelled next.  Gen. Warren forced the .passage or  the Tugela, seven miles to the left.

A few miles  outside of Frere, Dundonald passed  targets erected by the Boers to represent a force advancing in skirmishing  order. Kvidently the Boers had been  firing at these from the adjacent hills.  Dundonald pushed on and as the  main column advanced it was noticed  that all were confident.

Mr.  Uummings,  who  has  charge of the drafting of the map, has  been     unable     to   complete   it.    We  woulcLstrongly recommend the carrying out of this work to our successors.  * Id the opinion  of your council the  large   bodies   of   ore   discovered  and  being opened tip  on Keystone  Mountain,   Standard    Basin, Catties Creek  and other p.uts of the  Big Bend district point  to the  need   in   the   near  future of a smelter at  or  near Revelstoke,   and   we   have   requested    the  Dominion Government to  set aside  a  parcel of land north of the townsite for  this purpose.  Our attention was largely taken up  this year endeavoring to interest-  different pal-ties in the opening up ot  the Big Bend by means of a steamer.  Our efforts were frustrated through  the noncompletion of the wagon road  through the Canyon. We have the  promise from the Minister of Public  Works that this much needed work  will the at ouce be completed on  assurance that a boat will be put on  the upper river. We would recommend to the incoming Council their  earnest prosecution of the work, as we  are convinced -nothing ctn so fat-  advance the interests of our city as the  opening up of the rich mineral district  north of us,        ,;  We are sorry to have to report that  though the general meeting called for  the purpose strongly endorsed your  Council's opinion that it would be  conducive to the best interests of the  Board to hold a general meeting once  a month, not one.of your meetings  have'been-attended by any but your  Council. ' " " "', "'" ' ". '. " ,  During the year the hrst meeting of  the Associated Boards of Trade was  held at Rossland and .we were represented by Messrs. Brewster <fc Haig."  We consider the inauguration of those  associated meetings of great interest  to the district and trust they will be  continued. A report of the proceedings of the first meeting is on fyle with  the secretary.  Since the incorporation of the city,  the City Council have taken the  burden of a lot of .work off our  shouldurs, and except when the Dominion or Provincial Governments  were in session we have not found it  necessury to meet regularly.  Numerous matters of minor importance engaged tho attention of your  council from time to time, a report of  which will be found in the minutes.  Commending this short report of  your year's proceedings to your favorable consideration,  We, are Sirs, for the Council.  H. A. BROWN. Pres.  C. E. SHAW.

Two  British were killed and two wounded.  Messages from tbe front appear, to-  confirm the  general   impression   that  events in Natal will now move quick--  ly.   There is nothing up to the present  to support the miner.that  Ladysmith  has been relieved, but it is, learned  on  excellent authority that the situation'  is now regarded at the war office  with  entire confidence.

The men of the first Canadian contingent now serving in South Africa  have had the "baptism of fire," and  their coolness and discipline has already heen the subject of favorable  comment by the London press.  The Standard, which cannot he  said to be an emotional journal, says:  "The" Canadians and Australians had  been spoiling for a fight. Now they  have had the opportunity, and have  greatly distinguished themselves hy  their coolness and discipline. From  the view point of Imperial unity, the  little fight may fairly be described  as one of the most gratifying events  recorded in the recent history of the  British race.'  It is more than gratifying, it is an  event of great historic interest, being  the rirsti occasion on which, an auxiliary force from each of the two leading colonies of Great Britain fought  alongside, or in immediate touch  with, a section of the regular army.  The scene of this incident was near  Belmont. An attack of the Boer position was determined upon by Colonel Pitcher. The Canadians and Australians were ordered to share in this  dangerous movement, which was carried out with great gallantry and  complete success. The London Times  says of it: "The mother country will  share with the Canadians and Australians in the pride and gratification \  they must feel'."at. the fine qualities  displayed by their troops in this  dashing little  engagement."  The officers of the Toronto company  who would probably be engaged  in the operations, are Captain R. K.  Barker, Q.O.R., Lieutenant "vV. R.  Marshall, 3th (Hamilton), Lieutenant  C. S. "Wilkie, 10th R.G., and Lieutenant Frank D. Lafferty, R. C. A.,  of tii.-; city. They and their friends  and their comrades have our con-  ' gratulations.  "It -was perfectly justifiable," tne  "organ of the Liberal party" says,  "to denounce in 1896 the acts of  which the consequences becoming inevitable in 1900 ought to he cheerfully accepted." This seems to mean  that the despatch of Canadian contingents is a sad consequence of the  unjustifiable course of the Tupper  government in 1896. With tnis light  -we turn again to the language of the  campaign pamphlet} circulated by  hundreds of thousands in Quebec in  1S9G and used editorially in tne Laurier  press at the time.  Here are tho charges made against  Sir Charles Tupper and his associates  "One of the blunders of old Tupper  is imperial federation, -which signifies a more intimate alliance between  England and her colonies in general,  and Canada in particular.  "As England is always at war with  somebody, wo will have to continually tax ourselves to find tne money  and to' draw lots to furnish men.  "In return England will create these  droll baronets, knights of this and  commanders of that.  "But the people will remain food  for tho cannon.  "Why  all   these   armaments   it   we  ���������were not to have war?  "And   why   fight for  England?  "It is the electors who will have to  use these carbines and  these cannon  "We   are    considered     quite    good     __  enough to furnish food for caunon.    j she calls a halt to  thi  "The Tuppers, the Angers, the   i^feat for'  "md  ministerial -      *     ������������������-���������-  in  ruined   ,   .. _. -Huso.

It is; not surprising  that the leader*;  in whose . name and interest this lit  erature was used  should fail  to appear on the stump against Mr.  Bour-  assa.    Above all  it is  not surprising \  that  in view of  the  last clause : in  the appeal quoted, Sir Wilfrid Laurier  should   have   said   what   he  did ���������'.'���������'; in  October,   and that  Mr.   Tarte   should  have spoken as he did at St. Vincent  de Paul.

It l������ strange, to say the least of it.  that   Sir  Wilfrid   has   not   even   attempted  to check  the spread  of  Mr.  Hourassa's   sentiments     among     tne  people -wnom the latter has been addressing.    Unless  something  is done  soon by the premier it will be clear  to all that he is    willing    or    mori*  than willing that Labelle should vote  condemnation on tne ioyai course of  hie own  government.  And why should he not do so? Mr.  Bourassa being free,  takes the exact  ground that Sir Wilfrid took himself  before he was coerced into a patriotic course by the irresistible Influence  of the loyal people of Canada led by  Sir Charles Tupper.    Thero ia    every  reason to suppose that    the  premier  spoke In October as he thought, i-il-i  actions have changed,  but if he had  been as free as Mr.Bourassa he might  have continued to speak as Mr. Bourassa    speaks.       Perhaps      had       he  remained in opposition he might even  have repeated his musket speech, substituting  the Tugela    or  tho  Modder  river  for   the   Saskatchewan.     Attention ia again called to tho anti-British manifesto issued in Quebec in the  last  general   election   campaign.     It  appears  that  the  pamphlet  was  circulated  extensively.and   that extracts  from it -were printed ia Le Solid,   the  party organ   in  Sir    Wilfrid's'    own  city.    Le  Soleil   now    explains  that  these articles were printed amid the  excitement of the'campaign and that  1     "times  have since  changed."    It  declares   that  it   was   then     protesting  Against the expenditure of three millions   to   purchase    arms,   but   now,  ���������since  the   arms   were     bought,     tne  ���������government may asf well  use them.  Since the frost came between the  Boers and English we have discovered that in the Slocan there are  over 100 men who can give Buller  pointers ou military tactics, says the  New Denver Ledge. It is just like  the newspaper business. Every fellow looking on thinks he could do  better than the man behind the gun  or pen.

SOME LESSONS OF THE WAR  To the Editor of the  Herald:  Sir: During the whole course of  the present war in South Africa the  all absorbing topic, nothing but the  most gloomy and depressing intelligence nas been received. Day after  day we have eagerly sought -for a  turn of the tide of war, but .disaster  after disaster to our gallant men is  all we have got, te take with out-  ward-ealm-but-inv.-ard-groanj.ns  Thoroughly Up-To-Date In  Everij Particular  George Ham of the advertising  department of the Canadian Pacific  railway, accidentally, slipped while  emerging from a bath tub at his residence, Western, avenue, Montreal, a  week ago Sunday,, and broke a couple  of ribs. Mr. Ham will be confined to  bed for a few weeks inconsequence.  Referring to his mishap, George said:  "It's not as bad"a smash as the  Villa Marie hank. I am in plaster,  and never felt so stuck up in my  life.1' it would appear from his description of the matter that his injuries are not altogether fatal, but  for the future ho should bo very care-  baths.  Day after day the newspaper heading   tells  us  the  dismal   tale  of  im*  'success.   First   o������   ali   General   Gatacre fell   into  a  trap   and   lost  over  1000  men  in    killed    and    wounded.  Then Lord Methuen  was  repulsed -on  tha  western   border.

Gieat bravery was displayed  on both sides. After 10 o'clock the  British artillery lire . slackened and  a, terrible individual contest ensued  among the riflemen. At noon a heavy  ��������� thunder storm interrupted the battle,  lasting for two hours. The burghers  succeeded in gaining possession ot  most of the British positions* on thc  .western side of the platrand, *hut  they were soon obliged fo"retlre from"  most of: the ground they occupied.  Tho British were strongly entrenched  their redoubts being skilfully loop-  holed and the combat was so close  that the rifles were frequently fired  at arms length. Men on both sides  fought like demons and the bewilderment of the scene could scarcely be  paralleled. The operations continued  next day on a smaller 6cale, but it  Is reported as the result ot a forlorn  hopes. One gun and four ammunition  wagons were captured.  ���������������������������o   BOERS DEPRESSED  By Their Heavy Losses in the Attack  on Ladysmith.  London, Jan. 15.���������jV corespondent of  the Dally Telegraph in a despatch,  dated Frere Camp, January 10th, after  describing the situation as already  known ' says: "You may not hear  from me for the next two d&ys or so,  but believe me all is well."  The Standard publishes: Lady-  s-mith. January 11th. by heliograph,  via Weenen: The Boers are fortifying tlieir positions north and west  doubtless with a. view of securing a  safe line of retreat should the opposition to General Buller's advance fail.  They surround Ladysmith In large  numbers and may be contemplating  another attack. It is known, however, that they are greatly depressed  by their heavy .losses. Prior to Satin day they were confident of their ability to defeat the Garrison and take  possession of the town."  Beseigers Quiet.  Ladysmith, Jan. 12.���������The besiegers  have been quiet for two days, but can  be seen in active movement on the  distant hills. We have perceived two  small bodies galloping with two machine guns. More Boer dead were  found at the base of Caeser's Camp.  All well here.  o-  GREAT BATTLE  Montezuma will be sent for the  mules.

They were  sighted by a patrol of the enemy.  The Boers fled, abandoning rifles and  ammunition.   o   BRITISH TROOPS  Expected Within the Next Few Days.  Pretoria, Jan.-12.���������Everything points  to a great battle within the next few  days. Ladysmith for the - last two  nights has 'been firing rockets, the object of which is not known here. Reports from Colesburg- represent the  position there as favorable to the  Boers.-but the British are concentrating for operation on a lar*re scale. The  embargo at Delagoa Bay upon Transvaal imports is the question of the  hour with the burchers. If this be not  renewed it is asserted that steps will  be taken prejudicial to the prisoners  ard their rations.  Greatly Outnumbered by the Boers in  Natal.  London, Dec. 16.���������(4 a.m.)���������General  Buller's latest authentic word as to  what he and his 110,000 men are doing  was wired from Springfield after his  lirst step forward and the critics are  tryiinf to think out the unknown.London is confused uy surmises and rumors and is disquieted by the s*us-  i.-unsc. Mr. Spencer Wilkins, the lucid military expert of the Morning  Font, assorts that the Boer force in  northern Natal is larger than General  Buller's and General White's together,  so that thu Boers are able to leave u  force around Ladysmith lartrer than  that within the town and yet to oppose General Buller with a force superior to his own. Reports from the  Boer camps affirm that the circle o������  investment around Ladysmith has  been drawn closer by the occupation  of some hills nearer thu town, thus  liberating reinforcements to oppoBe  General Buller.  The Dally News suggests that the  multitude of rumors that originate in  South Africa and London are given  currency by the English military authorities in order to mislead the Boers.  The war panes of the great dailies this  morning are almost barren, nevertheless the instruments on the loops connecting thewar office with the cables  continue to click. Among the minor  perplexities of the war office is the  strike among the military tailoru  which causes a delay in the uniforms  of the recruits.  The Birmingham Mail, the organ of  Mr. Chamberlain, says: "We understand, on the highest authority that  if the government is defeated in  parliament on the question of the way  the war is being carried on, the  cabinet will immediately appeal to  the country, all the ministers having  decided to stand together and not to  permit any individual minister to be  made a scapegoat."   o   EVERYTHING  POINTS  SIEGE OF LADYSMITH.  HOW THE INHABITANTS  MEET BOM  BARDMENT. - LIVE IN HOLES  AND CAVES.  WAR OFFICE  Remains Silent on   General   Buller's  ' Turning Movement.  New York, Jan. 15.���������Reviewing the  ���������war situation under Sunday morning's date the London correspondent  of the Tribune says: The war office  was prolific in issuing the casualty  lists yesterday from Mafeking, Stormberg and Cclosberg and other camps,  but was silent hour after hour respecting Buller's turning movement.  .Comments made' on -the movement  24 hours earlier still held good at a  late hour last night. There were no  new facta. The theories of experts  ���������were of no value because there was  an utter lack of information on which  to base them. ' It is evident that  General Buller's advance to Poagiet-  er's Drift, if not a feint for a real  attack on Colenso, 17 miles below on  the "Weenan road, is a manoeuvre in  a series directed against the enemy's  flank and rear aud that time must  W_be.-_allowed for, the- working, of the  entire plan of operations.  The  passage    of   Tugela  river   by  a strong column with flat bottomed  scows or a floating bridge worked by  . a single  rope  ai the only  means of  transit,  would  require time, even  if  the enemy did not molest the invaders and possibly it could only he undertaken   under cover    of   darkness.  Military writers heve have succeeded  in  locating  the  Drift  here  with'  a  fair degree of accuracy, but dittle   is  known about the district of the main  road.   The grazing region is occupied  mainly by Dutch farmers.   Springfield  is "a 'little village of a few houses and  two stores.    The journey    by    post  cart  from   Ladysmith   to   Springfield  via  the  drift  occupied  seven and  a  half hours.    These are the only ob-  atinable facts respecting the  quarter  where General Buller is known to be  .operating.  To   the" Early   Relief   of   Ladysmith.  London, Jan. 16.���������Up to the present  the reported crossing of the Tugela  river by Sir Charles Warren's division  remains but a rumor; nevertheless  the whole tenor of* such news as has  dribbled in from South Africa during  the last 48 hours , indicates that a.  combined forward movement of a  comprehensive character is proceeding.  It is not necessary to believe the unconfirmed stories of the Boers being  in full retreat from Colenso because  it has been learned that the column  la proceeding via Weenen to cut off  their retreat. At the same time creditable information from many different sources, indisputably point to the  momentous changes in the disposition  of the republican forces. .  Advices from Pletermaritzburg,  dated January 13th, say: "Since  their defeat on January the Cth the  Boers have been removing their euns  from a position south of Ladysmith."  The same despatch confirms the report that the Thirteenth Hussars  reached Grobble without meeting the  Boers. The trenches were perhaps  the strongest portion held by the  burghers . and their vacation has considerably astonished  the British.  The merchants of Pietermaritzburg  received a message from Ladysmith  saying: . "Bring up jam and other  good things," indicating that Ladysmith anticipated an immediate opening of communications. Ladysmith  also hellographed that the belief was  prevalent there on January 13th that  the Boers were moving and concentrating their forces elsewhere.   o   HUDSON'S BAY  COMPANY.  00M PAUL  ALBERTA'S FIRST LOSS  An Innisfail Man Killed While Fighting  At Ladysmith.

He quotes psalm~XXXIII,  verse 7 as  an indication that God had given instructions  to  the  burghers   and   says  that the British--Have fixed their faith  in    psalm    XXXIII    1:80.   -   He    also  quotes psalm XXXIX,  13:14,  and asserts  that he has, searched the Bible  without being able to find any other  mode  which can   be followed  by  the  Boers, who must fight in the name.of  the Lord.     Commandering is proceeding busily at Pretoria, where the town  guard    is    exchanging    Mausers    for  Martinis,   as  the   former    are    badly  needed at the front.

Some Curious  Incidents Told  by  the  Times Correspondent.  The special correspondent of the  London TimeB at Ladysmith sends  a journal of the siege from which thc  following extracts are taken.  Wednesday, November   1.���������Although  the communications with    the    south  are still    uninterrupted    today,    the  town is practically in a state ot siege.  The    commissariat    department    has  been      busy     commandeering    foodstuffs from all  the stores, the hanks  arc closed  and bread has risen to    Is  a loaf.   The   unofheial   armistice   has  continued   as   the   ambulance   parties  of both forces are still searching for  wounded.    One battalion   (tho Dublin  Fusiliers) was despatched, to Colenso  with   thc   Natal   Field   battery,   as   it  was  reported   that  the   'enemy   were  moving  down  upon  thc  Tugela   river  in force.    The situation has proceeded  so far that in Ladysmith  it was accepted   that  the  closing  of  all   communication could only he a matter of  hours.    The   situation    in   which  Sir  Georgo   White     found    himself   was  this.    Ho had  at his  disposal  to  defend Ladysmith a force of 0000 men,  3G field guns, and a naval contingent  with  two  heavy  position  guns.       Of  foodstuffs  and  small    arm    ammunition   lie   possessed    a   supply    which  would   not,   under   ordinary    circumstances,   become   exhausted   in   turee  months.    But the  artillery  were not  so well  placed.    The  supply of shell  worked out to a little oyer 300 rounds  per gun  for the  field    batteries and,  even with   the   naval     guns,   it   was  evident that expenditure  would  have  to  be made  with    a    sparing    hand.  Ladysmith does not lend itself readily to'defence.    Roughly the town lies  in  the   bend' of   the  horseshoe.    But  the hills  which  make  this  formation  are disconnected, and the ranges and  spurs straggle over a large area. Not  only are they uneven, but their continuation stretches away in every direction,  and form  positions which in  the  majority  of  cases   actually  command   the  town.    With the  force  at  his disposal,  it was of course,  absolutely   impossible  to  hold  every hill,  and,   even   contracting   his   front   so  as   to   hold   the   majority   of"   strategical points,  Sir George White found  his 9000 men, of which only 5000 odd  were infantry, holding.a line of posts  extending over 11 mlies. Against this  the enemy   have    brought    at    least  -20,000 men,  this being the very lowest figure at which the estimate can  he placed, there being every reason to  suppose  the  combined    force    under  Joubert,  now  occupying Natal,  to be  between 2'5,000 and 30,000 men. \  Boers Have Better Guns  But this is not all;  the experience  of  the   last   three  weeks  has   shown  the enemy  not  only  to bo  numerically   superior,   but  also   possessed   of  arms " which   outrange   anything  that  we can bring against them.   If it had  not been for the timely arrival of the  naval  guns it is  impossible    to conjecture  what the consequences would  have heen.    Take| for    instance,  the  most  important    arm���������the    artillery.  We have 36 guns of the best-manned  artillery in the world, hut at the very  outside," nowever" "well     served  " our  guns   may  be, they have not an effective    range    above      4500    yards.  Against this the Boers have brought  into action "guns' fitted with  the latest telescopic    sights,    and    have   a  range of 7000 to 8000' yards.    However  devotedly our gunners  may  manoeuvre  their  weapons,  they  cannot  dislodge   an   enemy   in   action     against  them whom they cannot see.' This of  the field  artillery;   and while I write  a 6-inch position gun is shelling/ thc  town and  defences from    about 8000  yards.     If  the  naval   guns    had  not  arrived,   if   the   Boers   had   cut   the  communication three days earlier, we  would have been powerless to reply.  As it  is  we are forced to take most  of their   bombardment   sitting.   With  regard to the infantry arm, the discrepancy is not  so  great.      But the  Mauser  rifle  with  which    the  Boers  are  armed  is   a  better  weapon,   and  has a greater range.      With    a good  pair  of   glasses  and  a  Mauser  it  is  possible     to make  tolerable  practice  at 3000 yards.    No British infantry is  trained  to these ranges.      Our    men  know nothing    of    glasses;    yet the  farmer-soldier,  our enemy,  would not  think of taking the field unless    one  man in four possessed powerful binoculars.    Thus, at first sight, the task  =strGen~e'rarWhite~and"his'Tttle force  seemed   stupendous.     But   there   are  saving  contingencies,- the, first being  the dislike which the Boer has ever  shown to take the offensive.    He will  defend a position stoutly, but unless  he is absolutely certain of thc success  of a forward movement he is loth to  undertake it. This was proved in the  engagement on Monday  (October 30)  and  at. Reitfontein,  when  opportunities   were   given   to   the    enemy    to  follow up a retreating foe. It has heen  proved iff the half  dozen  outpost affairs which have taken place through  out  the  campaign.        Moreover    the  South African republic has been badly  served  by  its agents,  for if their  ammunition  had  been as serviceable  as  their  guns our  casualties    would  have   been   three' times   as   heavy as  they have been.    Their shrapnel    is  poor.    On  Monday,   when     thc   42nd  Field  Battery   moved  up    to   within  3000   yards   of   the   enemy's   position,'  well-fused shrapnel  burst in  front of  the battery time after time.    If those  missiles  had been from  our own arsenals it would have been impossible  for the men to have faced them and  worked the guns.    As it was.though  they    lost    severely,      they      made  the enemy's position untenable. Since  the bombardment shells    have    been  picked up filled with extraneous matter, proving the duplicity of the contractors who  supplied    the war  material.  IMPERIAL   IMW    .

The B ifhelor's of Revelstoke scored  another success at llieir ball last night,  but a report is unavoidably held over  till our next.  An interesting account of the recent  entertainment nt Arrowhead from  our special correspondent is unavoidably* held over to our next issue.  Tlie Gazette contains notice of the  appointment of T, J. Graham mid XV.  JSi. Lawrence of ltevelsloke ' to be  license commissioners for this district.  Mr. S.J. C.

NOTE AND COMMENT  r ��������������������������� .  The icusnn why Jos. Martin flopped  md why Mr. Higglns said ditto, Dr.  AIcKechnie'.s and Ituiph Smith's opinion of them fur doing it and the various oilier, personal matters now  occupying the sole and undivided  attention of our provincial legislature,  are doubtless of supreme importance  in the eyes of the gentlemen in question, in a lesser, though still considerable degree they live of interest to their  constituents, the people of Vancouver,  Rsqiiiiiin.lt and Nanaiuio, nnd they  probably afford, while in the process  of being threshed out in discussion,  one can (hardly ��������� call it debute, vast  amusement to the spectators in the  gallery nt Victoria, But the rest of  tlie province takes but little stock in  these questions. It wants to see some  business done. The house has now  heen in session over a fortnight and so  far they have not even got tho reply  to the speech from the throne settled.  If the Seitilin government cannot get  the business of the country taken in  hand by the house, what is the use of  their clinging to office?  As is apparent from it pnraginph  clipped from the Trout Lake Topic,  which appears in another column, the  gerrymander of the Trout Lake raining division in favor of Kaslo lias not  been interfered with in any way. The  records in the Trout Lake office, which  have reference to the district now  belonging to Ainsworth are being  forwarded to Kaslo, at which point nil  business connected with them will in  future have to lie transacted. Mr.  Kellie has done nothing, or if ho has,  the government has taken no notice of  him. It seems to be quite useless to  attempt to do anything through him.  The Herald's advice to the Lardeau  people is to place the grievance in the  hands of some live member of the  opposition and get it brought, up in  the house. In that case the question  would be thoroughly thrashed out and  the ins und outs of it made clear.  Beatrice.  Considerable activity is manifested  by the management of thc Beatrice  niine of the unfile district. This property is situated at the npex of a mountain and access was very difficult. A j  rawhide trail has been built and today  the mine is shipping high grade ore  nvw the Government waggon road  from Camborne to Arrow lake, seven  miles distant, nnd will most likely  have ore enough shipped at the beginning of the summer to pay out of  this winter's proceeds the sum of  $200,000, which sum was thu purchase  price, to he paid hy the present owners  of Chicago, Ills.

There was a lively time on the little  steamer Lirdeaii on Monday last.  Thiee Swedes, all very much the  worse for benzine, practically terrorized I lie liciat. which was carrying a  good I- a I of passmgers. One of them  had the engineer covered with a  loaded rifle for fully a couple of  minutes until he wns overpowered. In  ;he struggle one of his compatriots fell  into the lake and had to be fished out.  Things were so had in the narrow  space of the engine room of the little  hoat that tlie engineer finally stopped  his engines and declared he would not  go no further. Ultimately the boat  leached Comaplix, where the three  were taken in charge and next morning brought back lo Arrowhead.where  Geo. Newman. J, P., sat on the case,  and fined one innn ������2(1 and the other  two 810 apiece. They were let. off  pretty easy, but their previous good  i haiMcter and the fact that they were  badly scared and very repentant, no  doubt stood for them considerably.  The City Council.

Mr. Needham refused, to  say anything, except to say that lie  considered the two communications as  almost synonymous.

Kach Individual effort In this  direction appears small, but, in the. ne-rrEKHic  ,of all organized labor concentralart |n the  effort, thc power Is more than even monopoly  can withstand.  We therefore earnestly request that yourselves and members of your families when  maklnx purchases, keep a sharp lookout for  thc Union Label, and endeavor to make it.  known  to the ���������merchants  that  this   class of  f'oods arc desired. If this policy Is carried out  >y thc labor element, it will soon be known  which merchants are most favorable to tho  Interests of labor by kccpln*? stocks of union-  goods as far as possible.  Wo have noticed from time- to time that  when a railroad order desired to boycott a  road for unfair treatment, thc Federation of  Labor has always published the fact to Its  membership through representative papers  Mid by circulars to Its unions. Vou can do  much in cooperating with tho federation as  above sot forth.  Youre Fratornally.  OSCAR STKAUSS,  Secretary Union Label Committee.
