London, Feh. 15.��������� 4:_0 a.m.���������For the  Ill-si time since lhe war began the  British army is now inside tlie Boer  frontier. Lord * Roberts with 40,000  infaiitiy, 7,000 cavalry and 150 guns,  itirued the enemy's hues al Magei-b-  t'oiilein and is already operating on the  Orange Free Stale territory. But so  far only u. small engagement has been  entered into, but u large tactical  advantage has- been gained to lhe  relief of Kimberley which is within  a measurable teach aud the way to  Bloeml'oiileiu is also opened up aud  made much easier. * -  ��������� London, Feb. 14.���������The war office  has issued the following furlber  message from Loid Uoheits was  received this evening: Dekil's Drifl,  Feb. 14.���������General French left this  morning with three brigades of cavalry, artillery and mounted inf*inlry,  i eluding several colonial contingent.,  in order to seize a crossing of thu  Modder river, aboul 25 miles-distant,  and tepot'ls by a despatch dated 5:30  p.m.. that, he has forced a passage at  Clip Drift and occupied the hills north  of the river, capturing three of the  enemy's laagers with their supplies.

French's performance was brilliant,  and Lieut. Johnson, of the Inniskilling  Dragoons, is the only officer reported  seriously wounded. The Sixth Division was straight on the bank of the  Kieta Watervaal Drift and is moving  to support Ihe cavalry. The Seventh  Division is here and will go on this  afternoon. Four officers and 53 men  had to be sent last evening in the  returning'out wagons to the railway  line prostrated by the intense heat and  exhaustion.  Lord Roberts has evidently; ordered  General Macdonald's reconnuisance to  Knndoi-berg in order to draw the  enemy's -attention westward away  from their contemplated movement  through the Orange Free State. The  Boer's army is barred from the direct  route to Bloemfoulein and even on the  road by Hoshkof It would be ex  posed to a flank attack during the  march. Gen. Cionje, on learning of  Lord Roberts' disposition on Tuesday  and Wednesday, must have had an  interesting problem to solve. He had  to consider whether to hold on  to his  iiositiunt at Jacobsdale and Magers-  ontein and to seize Kimbeiley, or to  raise the siege and move oil, and, if so,  what direction, whether lo Bloemfon-  tein or northward'across the vaal.  The events form the brilliant opening  of a new campaign, which is being  marked hy concentration of purpose,  and by an energy that augurs well for  the future, -The public must wait  patiently for the result of these operation-, remembering that tbe distance  to be covered is considerable and the  heat intense. It is possible there may  be 110 general action until Friday.  A despatch from Mafeking said the  garrison could hold out there until  next June.  KIMBERLEY IS RELIEY%  Gen.

Wedding Bella.  The Scott-Brown nuptials took place  at St. Peter's church on   Wednesday  last at 2:30 p.m.   The sanctuary of the  sacred edifice had been prettily decorated for the occasion" with  Californian  vine and palms.    The choir  were  iu  their plaiW* and  sang  the   wedding  hymn "The Voice that breathed o'er  Eden" as the wedding party entered  the church and the marriage  psalm.  '.-Blessed are all  they   that   fear  the  Lord. " as the newly  married couple  proceeded from  the ehancel steps to  the altar.   The service   was  read  by  the vicar. Dr. Paget.   The bride*, "who  looked  charming in   white   Duches<-  satiu with silk chiffon trimmings, and  lace veil, was attended  by  Miss May  Bourne   as    maid   of    honor.     Her  bouquet was.composed of .roses and  smilax-and she wore on   tart'   dress, a  sunburst of  pearl  and' emeralds, the  gift of tbe bridegroom -nnd   a.  hand-  sotb'e _gdId-'J>racelet,'t__ -gift-*-of.- the  groom's mother. .-Miss .Bourne -wore  ���������pink silk and a large* picture I hat  of  white chiffon and carried a bouquet'of  carnations and  dahlias.     The  groom  was supported by Mr. 'R.   H.  Mayne.  as best man.   Mr. H. A.   Brown gave  the bride away.   After the service the  happy couple followed  by the wedding party passed down the aisle of the  crowded  church -and 'drove 'to   the  residence of   the   bride's   parents   on  Douglas St., where an   elegant collation wns served.   The   newly  married  pair left on the No. 1 for a"visit to the.  coast cities,  which-will* last about a  fortnight.   The bride's travelling dress  was a tailor made suit of  fawn  ladies'  cloth.     The   wedding   presents were  numeroii8and costly and came from  friends in  Revelstoke,   Eastern   Canada. Scotland and India.   The Hkrald  extender * its   heartiest   congratulations.  _  How Santa -Ct_uS  Came to Ladysmith.  ' The correspondent of the London  Standard, writing of-the Christmas  celebration in the gloomy surroundings of the besieged garrison at Ladysmith says:  "Only in one room was the illusion  complete. .There are in this town no  fewer than 200 childseu of European  parentage . Why they were permitted  lo run the risk of bombardment is a  question that may some day demand  an answer. Here, however, they are  and it was determined that they, at  any cost, must have something to  remind them nf a siege Chribtiii-ti.  . :' Col Dardnell,__of_the national  mounted police, a veteran whose  services date to the mutiny���������Colonel  Frank Rhodes, and Major Davis, the  Johannesburg leforuier who underwent, imniisonmenl lather than pay  the Hue impo-ed after Dr. Jameson's  raid, organized a Christinas tree.

Three* of these Santa Clans  tiees were ranged along the centre of  the hall, Great Britain mid South  Africa in the middle, with Canada und  Australia on each side,  "���������Upon the walls were such mottoes  as 'Advance, Natal,' and *-May the  New Yi'hi* Bring Happiness.' , Cotton  j wool artfully disposed* ainong green  leaves was suggestive of snow and  and the happy faces of the children  carried one's thought.- over many  leagues of laud and sea to our English  homes."

The * following article from thc- pen  oTHsit Konni Ziiliacus, one of the  Finnish delegates who visited Alberta  last summer is reproduced from the  the columns of the Swedish "Atc-  _e_m." It is of no little interest to  _s ,a. it gives the report or the  delegates to their fellow countrymen  on the suitability of Northern Alberta tor the establishment of n, large  Finnish colony. The article ivas  translated by Mr. C. P. "Marker, superintendent of creameries, to whom  the Kerald desires to express its acknowledgments:  Last --inter, on February 1.1th, thc  Royal Ukase wao as wc know promulgated, containing the final decision  i on matters of law alfecting at the  same time the interests of Finland  and Russia, and expressing clearly  the view ot our supreme ruler notwithstanding the will of the Finnish  people . It was no secret that the  "Ukase appeared with th***' ostensible  object of satisfying the'demands of  these representatives who had made  certain demands with  regard  to    thc  - passing of a new conscription law  ia Finland which was put before  the legislature. The protests which  the Ukase called forth.' are already  known, a protest from the Finnish  senate, from the whole Finnish people, in the press ot the civilized  world.   _r.d finally from the most im-  -portant men in the world nf science,  literature and art throughout Huiope.  and it is equally well known that all  these Protests were ignored and met  with  deaf ears.  The   result    was     naturally   .made  known  at  once  to  all  classes  in  Fin-  -iand."   There  was  no  doubt   whatever  *., but   that  the  czar  submitted   this law  - with the deliberate intention of forc-  the people to the Inchest- degree, but  able or not to the people or Finland. It is not necessary here to  touch upon the other possibilities  which the Ukase might "nave had in  view. A five year military service  outside the country under foreign  commanders was enough to excite  the people to the highest degree, but  if thi* were not sufficient some of the  Russian official organs wont so far  as plainly to state what the practical   result."-   would   be   for   the   Fin-  ������������������ni-h s_t_i_____ho   would   be     *ao_ called   _pop.  to  serve.    They would  in  no  _?__   rac-ive   treatment'   different   to  the   Ru==i_ns   themselves,   nor   should  they be spared from  the indignity  of  the lash.which is in certain  cases inflicted   on   th_    Russian   soldiery.   No  better  means  could  have  been  devised   to   add   to   the   antipathy     which  from   th ���������   f-rst   has    .been   shown   all  over  -Finland   to     this     conscription  l_-,v.

Fine---   February,   1S53,- the   number   of  emigrants   began   to   increase     to    an  alar_ilng d'-gree.    The steamers which  ply   weekly     between     ITango     and  Hull  -..ere  crowded   on   (.very  trip   to  their  -tmost capacity   with  emigrants  who   if   as-k.d   theh*   reasons   for  leaving   ivferred   to   tho   new   political   regime  which   was  in  a. fair  way  to   ._*.���������  introduce, "i   into  their count!*..

All th:otic_. the v.inter and spring  emigration proceeded in ".his w;,y. '..:.���������  boats fror.. I-Jango carried away every  trip as many emigrants as they  could accommodate, till tho number  increased to about 2000 per month.  It became clear that the totai for  the year IS. fi would be far i _ excess  of any preceding- year, and conse-  <l_ently some attempt had ��������� to be  made to find some other home for  these multitudes of people, so as in  .some way to seek to lessen  thc effect  of the loss ���������which, tho country would  sustuin by reason of their departure,  and at the same time to effect Rome  practical good to the emigrnnlM themselves. The reports from Hango nnd  fivni further north show that an  enormous number of young men who  l.ad not as yet reached tlio age of  military service had loft Finland, and  tin.- desire to prevent this .iiain naturally  arose.  U  ivuk thought advisable to bum an  iirgiLiils-Ulou   in   a   colony   whore���������mutatis   mutandis���������they   mi.hl   live     as  nearly   as   possible   u.  lite   similar     to  lh.it  in  their own country,  where ie-  lalions   with     the     mother     country  could  he  maintained,   inUUi-i tually as  well     as   materially,     so     that    they  might ikiL be entirely lost  to Finland.  When   individuals   become -   scattered  over  such  an   enormous  area   as   the  continent   of America it is easily tin-  best    derstood   that   thoy   soon   become   absorbed   in    the   prevailing   nationality  .around    them,   but   under   conditions  which  did   not  seem   lo  be  impossible  ot   attainment   it   was    though I    that  this    might,   to   a.     great     extent   be  avoided,   and  a possibility  created  for  thc'lr eventual  return  ui  their  mother  country,    in    th.    event    of   a    change'  in   the  conditions   which   led   In   their  departure.    Finally   it   was  considered  that   :i   colony     of     this   kind    .oilId  form  as  it were a  moral  -iipporl for  those  wild   remained   at   home.

This  matter was  the subject ot lively  discussion  in several circles, and created   such   interest   that a  number  of  persons  advanced   suflieient.   funds  for  an   investigation   as   lo   the   possibilities   ut   a   colony   of     this   kind,   ni-.d  commissioners were  appointed  to look  into the matter.  The commissioners" hlar'o.l in July  and first steered their cow-re to  Newfoundland of which an extremely  favorable report had been leeeived  by one of them. Jf une ���������. j.:id Ivl'.cvc  even half of the semi-oiHci.il statements concerning it. Newfoundland  should he a veritable panic*so for  the people of Northern Europe, who  might-be desirous of forming new  homes. Such" is not, however, by any  means the case. Newfoundland is in  every way unsnitfible for Ei-repean  emigration. The fisheries are __-ns  exploited to such an extent *.-'j.: litre  is no room available for new i-ompeli-  tors. and tor agricultur ili-its I lie soil  is unsuitable and the vli-Tvi'e Is severe. Here and there. nlor;s the  banks of the rivers, ihere Is a'.'uvial  soil but to a very small osier'., the  ground being generally cvn.yi.ly. All  over, except near the coa-.t,, . be corn-  try is a primeval forest, consisting  largely of spruce. The limber is  however very heavy, prnbii.ly owing  to the soii being waterlogged. As  soon as a tree reaches a certi: 3.eight  the top dries out, and one could i ev,-  nnd again see large tracts of this  timber, devastated by fire, as carfr-  less a. landscape as one coulu well  imagine. At the same time the moisture of the soil causes a luxuriant  growth of small shrubs, which together with spruce saplings form an  impenetrable thickness. The commission were unanimously of the opinion that although the mountains ot  the island were rapidly disintegrating and there might be soil enough  in a century or two to justify farming on a Iaige scale, such a scheme  was   out   of   the   question  at   present.  From Newfoundland the comnii-  sioners Proceeded to Ottawa, the capital ur Canada, situated in the heart  of the country. In the eastern provinces, near the Atlantic coast, it is.  altogether out ot the question to seem e large tracts of land, and any  .__i might be got is far from being  the best.' Nova Scotia, New lSruns-  wick and Quebec, belong to that part  of Canada which has been colonized  irom early days and are therefore not  ���������suitable for immigrants coming in  large numbers. It is true that the  eommisoKvn whose arrival the Press  did not neglect'to record, 'had an  offer of land from more than one  source, and it was thought that the  Finns, coming as they did from a  country situa-ted in the far north,  would be pleased with the conditions  climatic and otherwise of a district  which is considered as specially favored. A glance at the map. how-  a\cr. showed that tho area was alto-  -gerher -loo���������limitcd-_.o_acc__L.t__ ate_  immigration on a. large scale and the  commissioners proceeded to Ottawa,  where reliable information concerning Canada might be had and where  they might see how far the government was prepared to go in assisting  the   project.  The commi.-sioners would naturally  look at the Pacific coast seeing 'hat  tlv re was nothing available on the  Atlantic; coast.

Kimberley, 20 miles away from tho

straits. Details of the December rate
show that in a population, of .11,000
whites and 10,000 blacks, the mortality was 110 whiter and K1S blacks per

G71 per 1000 among the whites and 012

fever   prevails.
Thu frightful state of things In
December cannot have improved
much, if at all ���incc, and tho fighting power of tho garrison must have

the Boers has increased and there is

to dredging for gold in the hottoui ut
rivej-s.
B. R, Atkins has written a letter to
tbe hoard of tiade and J. M, Kellie has
signed his name to it. This joint
effusion of two great minds is badly
afllicted with the Atkins disease of
writing a column and a half of stuff to
express a two line idea. Briefly boiled
down it merely amounts to this that
J. M. Kellie has resigned more in
sji'i'ow than anger from the board of
trade because it has become a mere
political body. Presumably the letter
is Keltic's idea of a complete answer to
the board's two recent resolutions of
censure upon him for his interference
in the canyon wagon road and his
Impudent disregard of a recent recommendation of the city council. Kellie
is quite mistaken. It is no answer at
all. us can easily be shown.
In the first place it has always been
a feature in the history of the council
of the board of trade here thnt. no
matter what its composition, and no
matter what party or leader in provincial politics Kellie has for tbe time
being been supporting, he and tbey
have always been at logger heads. The
history of the protection of the river
bank here was one long story of effort
on the part of the board to get the
government, to do something, disregarded, neglected, blocked by
Kellie, because with his usual
self sufficiency he bad formed the
opinion that the work should be done
entirely by the Dominion. What has
been done was done in the teeth of
Kellie's opposition. He objected to the
work being done by the province at
all. He objected to the particular
scheme which was adopted. He would
have liked to get the work, which was
done, condemned, together with the
official who planned and superintended
it.- That is Kellie's record on that
question. A record of stupidity,
neglect and bull-headed obstinacy
to a work which has saved the town-
site now' for two years and will do
so indefinitely with a little annual care
and expenditure. Was the board's
opposition to Kellie on that question
political? He was for most of the time
supporting the men in the house
against whom he is now opposed. The
complexion of the council of tbe board
has heen totally changed since then.
Yet it is on record that they were
continually fighting Kellie, urging
him to do something and practically
censuring his wooden-beaded indifference to the crying need of tbe town
for protection' against the annual
enrroachments of the river. . It is no
new experience then for Kellie to find
himself in opposition to the board.
How is it that be has only just discovered, that this opposition is of a
political nature?
But how dees this plea look even
now, when examined. The pref-ident
and vice president of the board are
both supporters of the party to which
Kellie is doing so much injury in this
district because he also styles himself
its supporter. The gentleman, who
moved the resolution censuring
Kellie's interference with the recommendations of the city council, supported Kellie in every possible way at
the last election and is still a supporter
of Mr. Semlin's government. What
then can there be of apolitical nature
about the present complexion of the
council of the board ? How -it-Hint tlie
city co'incil ? Is that a mere political
body? Because they unanimously
endorsed- the-fesol ut ion-of-t he-board
which practically censured Kellie's
interference with the' wagon road
grant last ye*vr. II. is no good, Kellie,
There is no political issue here. The
only issue is this. You have been
found out at last. Your own,conduct
has convinced even men who supported you heartily eighteen months
ago that voir are unworthy of their
confidence. You have betrayed your
trust. Yon stand convicted at the
bar of public opinion ns incompetent
to ever, understand the best inteiest
of this constituency, and as being a
hindrance instead of a help to its
development. And every iinin in the
const fluency ot common sense, pro-
gie-sive ideas and independence, ro-
gHidles of 'political creed, has made
up hi- mind that you have GOT TO
GO. That is lhe isHiie Mr. Kellie,

only waiting a fitting season to shower
upon him a rich rewind. This is a
tempting line of thought, but still a
digression from the main subject,
which was the blank and total disregard of the communications of the

It Heenis to he a very remarkable
method of doing hiiNineKH which is ir.
vogue in the office of the- provincial
secretary, who in also thr. premier, of
the province. A fortnight, ago last
Friday the city council here lecom-
m>*nded J. D. Sibbald ns a ht and
proper person to be appointed police
magistrate in the absence of T. L.
Haig. So far no notice whatever has
been taken of this comiininic.itiori, and
that in spite of the fact that a second
letter was ordered to he written by
Ihe city clerk on the following Friday,
inquiring whether or no the premier
had yet received the recommendation
of the previous week. The only indication that has so far reached Revelstoke that Mr.  Semlin   is  even  aware
iF��
