Virtually that is.   to increase their divi-  dends they claim   the right to enslave  their fellow subjects���������this enslavement  of the natives being the very head and  front of thu quarrel which the Empire  has hud with the Boers.   It is nothing  to these wretched creatures that men,  whose hoots they are not lit to lick,  are dying by scores In South Africa in  a quarrel which is so largely or their  own making that were it not for the  ultimate benefits to all the inhabitants  of   tho  Transvaal,   white    or    black,  which  we'.know  will follow the Hug,  there are plenty of nf loyal Britishers  who hoped to the   last   that   the war  would never bo begun and would now  wish that it had  never been  entered  upon.   The only idea which the campaign   presents   to  them  is that they  should   put in a claim   in   the   sacred  name of their god. mammon, to stain  by greed and oppression the flag which  is now undergoing iv fresh'baptism of  and consecration   of * blood and tears.  One can hardly wonder that Oom Paul  hates and despises Englishmen, seeing  how large a proportion  of his experience or our nation  is made up from  contact with such specimens as   these.  He bled them for all they were worth  and they deserved to be bled.   Had he  only spent what he wrung out of them  wisely in the interests of good p-ovei n-  ment and freedom  and the education  and welfare of his people,   instead   os  putting it all on  one desperate throw  for the Empire of  South   Africa,   the  whole pack of stock jobbing coyotes  could never have howled loud enough  to drive the Empire to war with  him.

It is somewhat dangeious for any  one to espouse the cause of the Boers  within hearing of Canadian ears.  When the Australian liner, Miowera,  was at Honolulu one of the sailors was  severely handled for expressing sympathy with the enemies of the British  Empire and us a consequence had to  be placed iu the doctor's care.  Only the other day a man riding on  the footboard of an overcrowded street  car in this city made some remarks detrimental to the Queen and country  und commenced to extol the Boers. As  a result he suddenly found himself on  tho street while the car travelled on  totally oblivious of the fact that a pa������-  sennei* had "fallen" off. ������������������  On Sunday morning n citizen while  passing a group of. sailors on Hastings  street, heard what he took to be a remark detrimental to the cause of Great  Britain. Withouta moment's thought  he turned and landed a resounding  fiathanded smack on the cheek of the  speaker. A tight insued. followed by  explanations in which it was discov-  ei-ed that the rem.nk had been  entirely mistaken, the. speaker heinK a.  loyal Britisher. Although' Sunday  morning a convenient "side-door  was found the matter was settled by  toasting the "Queen."  A Texada miner was not so fortunate  however. Mr. A. M. Burnes, m-ci**-*-  tarv to the Mable Bay Mining Co. was  in the city yesterday and staled that  on Saturday last a miner who espoused  the cause of the Boers "to .cause  a little diversion," so effectually succeeded in his object that had not.some  of the officials interfered on his behalf  his case might have heen a critical one.  He had, entered the general room of  the boarding house and hearing everyone upholding Tommy Atkir.s had,  for fun, remarked that he favored the  Boers and called for three cheers for  Kruger. In a moment- half-a-dozen  lists were threatening him and one  quicker to action than the rest, had  laid the offender low.���������News-Adver-  ti-������r<  Tinware.

'*.'"���������  The following is an extract from the* .  letter of a Canadian girl in CapeTownV  South Africa, to a  Canadian   girl   at',  home: *��������� ���������-._.-  Dear Blanche,���������Tour short note-- to*,  hand.   The mail does not go -out for--  uearly a week, but I am so excited  I>  must write to tell you  all about- it.*.  "It" is the Canadian contingent 1 They"-  cuiiie in on Thursday and departed for'-  the front on Friday.   As the Sardinian-  sailed into  the bay. the  hundreds *of"  ships anch'ored all  saluted them   by-  means of  their steam  siiens,   and . as_  they   neared   the quay  singing ."The*-  Maple Leaf, and God Save the Queen,"''  the  enthusiasm   was    intense.   They'  pitched   their   tents on   Green  Point  Cemmon, and   we- went down  to see*  Canadian faces and hear their voices.  "_Tgirll������^i*^me"_'_iked*~thefii*st"one-she*;-  talked   with,    what    "grandmamma"  sent her front   Canada.     The  soldier  very gallantly detached his maple, leaf"  badge from his helmet   and   left  her  :w*ww������_-4iww*rw  Seeing that a resolution  censuring  J.  M.  Kellie's   interference with  the  canyon wagon road grant was unanimously adopted lata Thursday by  the  council   of   the   board   of   trade and  unanimously endorsed last Friday by  the city  council.  Air. Kellie can  con  siller   himself   as   having   received   a  fairly straight local pointer as to the  opinion nntertained nf him by the very  large majority of the business men of  this place.       The   gentlemen   of  the  board of trade and city council  who  voted   for  this   resolution,    i-mnpiise  members of  both  sides   of  provincial  politics, men,  who iu   the   past have  supported Mr. Kellie henrtily. as  well  as men who have consistently opposed  him.   Any    attempt     to   make  out  this vole of censure as a  mere piece  of political tactics must necessarily be  a lailure.   Most men would feel such  an expression of   the   feeling of  the  business pnition of the principal  town  in their constituency keenly.   But the  Herald does not suppose it will "fizz"  on  Mr. Kellie lo  any extent.   Little  things   like  that do   not   annoy   Mr.  Kellie.   One might as well try to tickle  a  hippopotamus    with    a   peacock's  feather.  happy In the belief that grandmamma-  had   sent   it.

Colonel   Ungues   seemingly    lacked     tlie  smallest   perception   of.   discipline,   it  was  to  him   apparently  an   unknown  quantity."

Even  if  Co'.onel  Hughes  in  his    desire  to  defend   his   Queen,'   proposed   to   tho  Imperial      authorities     directly     to  raise a regiment without first having  sent  his   request     through     General  Jlutton,  it is  a  breach  of  discipline  which should not involve total  annihilation   as   an   ollicer   in   Her   Majesty's service.    To  tbe  ordinary  lay  mind,     to       have     refused    Colonel  Hughes   any   position     whatever   in!  ranks  of his own countrymen would  have   been a sufficiently   severe   sentence,   but to   follow   him   to    South  Africa and   to  ensure his being  boy-  col ted iu every other branch of Her  -Majesty's  service   looks   very   like a  systematic*   persecution.     The   colonel  has   many   friends     throughout   tho  Dominion  and   thc   so-called   explanation   of  General   Huttoii   will   certainly   increase   their  number.

The district is one of thc  most promising in the province, and  its immense bodies of fair grade oi-e  will sensiby swell the gold-output in  tho near future. Although no statistics are as yet available concerning  the output of tho precious -metal for  the year, it is at least gratifying to  note that, so far as Rossland is concerned, great activity is being era-  oioycd. in opening up the mines. Happily, the labor troubles, rampant in  other camps, have not. spread to Rossland, and we find that the total quantity of ore shipped from the mines  around that town for the 11 months  and *i0 days, ending November 20th,  was 155,000 tons, valued at about  $2,n6:'i,O0U. Of this.output the Le'Roi  has shipped about .SI,000 tonS, the  War Eagle 5f>,500 tons, the Centre  Star 12,000 tons, and the /Iron Mask  5.000 tons. The total shipments for  tho year will probably amount to  about 1S5.000 tons.

At a Small Gost to lhe Government.  To The Editor of The Herald:  Sir: In a recent article In an eastern  paper, written hy a -military critic,  tho writer criticized the government's  policy of handling the militia department. ���������' He. stated that Canada had  about 110,000 badly drilled and badly  equipped volunteers; that the present  14 day's drill in each year is altogether  Inadequate" to make our young men  eincient In tho art of war. Ho also insisted on the expenditure of large  sum's of money for drilling the whole  force* an nu ally.  Now I do not wish to criticize tho  .���������TO\*eru:--.ient for not spending more  money on the Canadian militia, for J  believe there is too much money  spent for the benefits received, noi  do I wish to find fault with their  svstcm" of management, a's practically th" same has been In force ever  since tho Hrst volunteer company was  raised In the "Dominion. As the  whole htylo of lighting has been  changed since thc introduction of the  new Ions lango (piiclc firing rifle, the  llnio h.ui imived ���������>.'.*.!.*.-. I;.' my op:*.*.Uiii  this old obsolete system should be  abolished. Now that f'anadn Is sending irnops to South Afrlen to ulil the  mother country in her present struggle with llio l-'.ners, nnd may be further called on to mix up In Britain's  wars, we should give our young men  a practical training so that when'they  go abroad they would be able to do  honor tn tho premhr colony of the  British empire. The all Important  thlnir In the present style of lighting  is to bo able to shout straight al long  rtingos. To do effective work every  ono of our volunteers should therefore  lie  a  sharpshooter.  My object in writing this article is  to point out how this can lie done at  very much less cost than the present  almost useless system In vogue. 1  will give my own experience as a  Canadian volunteer, which will be  the experience of the majority of volunteers. I joined about the time of  the first Fenian troubles and after  our company luid been drilled until  wu cuuld go through the various evolutions and were able to keep slep  and march shoulder to shoulder, etc.  we- were marched off to the targets  in have rifle practice, small prizes  being given to get up a little enthusiasm. The result of that shooting  match was that a few of the older  shots took all the prizes and the balance of the men could not hit the targets, so when we.got through shooting we knew just as little about sighting a rifle, allowing for wind, bright  -lights, dull weather, and many other  things known only to a good shot,  as we did before the practice.

A false alarm from No 6 box brought  the No. 1 brigade up town yesterday.  An examination of the box in question  showed that the alarm must have been  due to some , mysterious electrical  combination. It happened exactly at  the time when the electric light came  on and a crossed wire may have had  >Eometbing to do with it. But the  -snow around the box itself was sufficient evidence that nobody had been  "monkeying" with it, as w������a the first  not unreasonable xuppoaition.

P. R. WATCH INSPECTOR-  Service of Intercession at St. Peter's.  The service in St.!Peter's church on  Sunday, evening was attended liy large  numbers. Throughout it partook of  an intercessory form for the soldiei-s  and others on active service in South  Africa. At evensong special lessons  were read and the psalms simp; in St.  Paul's on a like occasion were chanted,  121, 122, 130. 138. The sermon by Dr.  Paget was ������. profound and deeply interesting discourse on the subject of  prayer, which he defined to be a.  divinely appointed means for man to  do God's will. The subject was handled  iu a most masterly fashion with  particular reference throughout to the  expediency of special intercession for  the success of our arms in South  Africa. After: the sermon 'i special  form of intercession put forth by the  Bishop of Salisbury was said and  formed a deeply moving and impressive portion of the -service. During the  collection the grand old hymn "O God  our help in ages past" was sung, and  after the blessing the large congregation joined, as one man, in singing the  lirst verse.of the national anthem.
