Hume & Co,  The vote of th'i city council on  Monday brought the project of the  purchase of the plant of the Revelsloke Water, Light & Power Co. once  more within the range of practical  politics. Tbe Hkiiald is of the opinion  lhat lhe council has acted wisely in  laying the matter before the property  owners without any further delay, lt  is practically almost a.certainty that  the vole will be in favor of the  purchase anil although the council is  not yet in a, position to present the  further bylaw, which will he necessary  iu order lo raise a, sum sufficient to  make the necessary extension of the  waterworks system fur lire protection,  yet in voting on the bylaw lo purchase  the plant us it now stands, every voter  does so wilh a perfect knowledge lli.it  it will shortly be necessary to borrow  such a timber sum and even Unit lhe  amount will be somewhere between  thirty and forty thousand dolluis. lu  the. meanwhile lhe city may as weli  own Che plant, which it has fully made  up its mind lo ov\ u ami be il rawing lhe  monthly prolils. of which as il is, lhe  delay h.is aheady made a present to  the company to lhe amount ot some  ten thousand doUciis.  The Hkbalu doea not know if it is  woilhi while lo recapitulate the  arguments, for what is already a  ton-gone conclusion Hul if there still  remains a single pi operly .owner iu  town, who h.is not'got them ui his  fiiigelsenils htie tliey are: -lu the  Krat, place We have j^ol In uliiain mi  uicieased wnluL* siippiy'ior liie piulei-  trou purposes ..uineliov,'.

The city could  liovlow the monev leqlined atul put in  if-wuierwoiUs"system for liie protection purposes itself, lu has the power  lo do so, hue mil lo put in a systeiu li r  domestic sei vke in older lo compete  with lhe company. The cuy cwiild  bori-ow iiiouey to no this lint as there  would In* mi re*, emie coming in horn  a systeni.'put iii^'(iiil\v,for^tiiv'iiiio>.iic-  tioii,.Lhe inteiest und siuking tuinl  would i.ave lo come out nf tile pucki-l-  ol the lax payers and would amount, Lo  a yearly sum ot between f*j:������cU:j* and  $SU<!0 I'ors.iy 23 years, when the system  Mould be fiee of debt and ihe piopeiiy  ol the cily.  Or we could let the company put iu  the required extension of the system.  They ask for 10 per cent on their  outlay, whiih would amount to $3500  a year or more, and would also have  to comedhectlv out of tho pockets of  llie ralepaycrs, with nothing to shew  for it at lhe end of 23 or any other  term of years.  Or we can ^o to law with the com.  puny to try and make lliem give up  their waterworks and rights, nnd keep  their elect! ic liirht plant. This is a  course which has'from time to time  found a -few endorsers. But a very  slight reflection ' will* convince any  reasonable man th.it, it is quite  untenable'. The Revelstoke Water,  Light & Power company's charter was  one?���������under���������th'e^teriiis-of -which- they,  were empowered to inst'il both a  water system and an electric light  system. They were not as u nuitler of  fact allowed Io dissever the one from  Ihe other themselves but were compelled by the expiess terms of the  charter to have hoth running within  two years, from the granting of il.  The company bus lived up^to the exact  terms of ils charter. Although the  supplying of water to the town is by  far the most inexpensive and rein-  lively profitable department of its  business, it, made no attempt toshiik  its obligations in the way of furnishing  electric light well within the prescribed time limit. And it seems to  the Herald that it is extremely  unlikely that uny court would take the  view that this municipality can compel the company to yield up part of its  plant and part of its privileges against  its will because it happened to suit the  ideas of this citv that it should be  compelled-to do so.' To attempt tn  force the company to do this would  mean a long course of litigation. And  litigation would not .furnish us with  our required water for fire protection  purposes in the first, place and would  in the second soon run up into  big money. The city of Nanainio  only recently found thnt it took no  time to run up a hill of costs, of some  $23,000 over a. water rights suit. And  nt tlie end of all this time nnd expenditure we might very easily nnd  probably find ourselves exactly where  we are today, minus a proper water  supply nncl plus a big lawyer's bill.  The fourth course, which cnn be  adopted is llie one, which the Herald  feels assured will he adopted nnd thnt  is the purchase ofthe company's plnnt.  What that would mean to the municipality thc Hkrald will proceed to  discuss in ils next issue.  The Associated Boards of Trade of  Easteun British Columbia Vote for  Free Trade in Railways.���������A Strongly  Worded Resolution.  Greenwood, B. C, March 1.���������The  Associated Boards of Trade of Eastei n  British Columbia by an overwhelming  majority declined for free trade in  railways. A vote of 33 to 5 passed the  following resolution moved by Duncan  RosS, oF Greenwood, and J. B. Henderson. Grand Folks. Three of those  opposed represented Trail. Mr. Ross  in a strong speech urged that neither  the Coal Co. nor Ihe 0. P. R, should he  considered, but. the association declare  for an open door for all railways.  Whereas, several applications have  been made to lhe Dominion parliament  and" provincial legislature for nets  incorporating railway companies to  build lines of railway into the province  of BVitish Columbia fiom the United  States;  And whereas interested parties .ire  strenuously endeavoring to create the  impression that such railways,- if  const meted, would be inimical to the  mining and smelling interests of this  province:  -And whereas in furtherance of their  designs the opponents of the competitive 'railways have proclaimed thai  those interested in .the mining und  smelting in . British Columbia are  opposed to I he granting of said railway chattels:  Theiefore, tie it resolved that the  Associated Boards of Tiade of Eastern  British Columbia, l-epieseiiting every  lown in the met'illilt'i'ous portion of  I3i'"tPi'ii Br.ti-h Columbia./ and every  enterprise *���������"��������� ho-e success depend* upon  I lie-,development of lis niinei.-il  I', siinree*., emphatically (ler).ire for  "Fiee Trade in Railways," .mil-believe  I hat every bon.ilide railway company,  ilesiioiis of building , railways in the  piovince, ������-hoiild be allowed to do so:  And be if furlliei icsolved - Unit" the  ,is-o'e',.-((ion .is .strongly of the opinion  chat cheiip/freiji'iil rates aie. essential  io building up lhe mining and smelting  industries, aud in tlie .absence of  government owned railways, these can  be'seeured only by competition nnd  lhe contiol nf rules through ;*. railway  coiiiinission or other effective instrument :  And he it further resolved lh.it. this  association pctiliim - the , Dominion  parliament and provincial legislature  tu grant, the'iharter applied.for.by/the-  Crow'sKe.st Pass Coal OC and-those  applied' for 'by other.coiiip.-inics, .who  ask feii- nothing'beyond lhe piiviiegc.  of constructing railways inlo the province.  And be it fn'ilher resolved that  copies of this resolution he printed and  forwarded to the iriemlieiK of the  Dominion and provincial governments,  and the members of the House of  Commons. Senate and provincial  legisldluie.  any certainly of a return for the  money and time expended, and it is  fair to assume that perhaps only one  claim out of forly or fifty ever proves  marketable. -  "The owner then begins to develop  his mine. If he uses a water power  there is an annual fee for that'. For .ill  the limber he uses from his claim the  government churges hitn 50 cents per  cord. -  '  '���������All this, it must be remembered, is  in addition to the heavy customs lux  the miner, in common with all the  rest of t.he population, has ,to pay on  tools, clothing and food; and the  heavy expense he is put to to get nil  these things to the scene of his lahoi s,  which usually-lies in a more or less  in accessible - place nncl thousands of  miles from the manufacturing centres.  So much for initial expenses iu the  shape of taxes and transportation  charges nnd so on.' I mty also sny  incidentally, as additional evidence of  the exceptional difficulties and expenses the miner has to-face, that the  wages he. pays aro higher ancl the  hours of work shorter, limited ns the  latter are by statute to eight hours per  day, than in almost any other industry.  Besides, you must remember, nil this  time he is helping to bring into existence some little, town near his  property, thus creating for the couutry  additional means of taxation uud  revenue. , -  "The last straw to the camel's load is  in the shnpe of n roynlty of two per  cent, ou the gross profits realized on  lhe ore without making anyallowance  for the expenses of mining.1- There is  no such tax on the output of.any other  industry.*. There is no such tax on ore  in the United Statps, nor as j'far as we  know in any civilized'*��������� country.  Then there is ji land tax qi 2Sc. per  acre on every crown granted claim.  The government exact nn income tax  which is in udditiou to all the other  taxes."  Mr. Kirby herp intervened nnd  expressed the opinion that once this  state of affairs ,.was brought prominently lo the attention ot the legislature  surely an equitable adjustment of the  biudens of taxation would be made.  Nothing appeared to him as .more  shortsighted -and impolitic than to  unfairly tax the industry upon which  the future of British Columbia depended, especially as kindred enterprises  an oss the border were encouraged in  every possible way." Mi*. Kirby added:  "Tliere are millions of 'money "in Eng-  Irind awaiting investment and now  that there is every probability of a  large amount of it beingdivei ted to B.  C it. would seem to an' outside, observer that the legislators of the province  ciniiol. too ��������� cncfully consider the  mipolicv-of'burdening the" mining  indnstiy and alaiining investors." .  THE CHOW'S NEST COAL.  In the Hands of the American Smelting  [& Refining Company.  Definite announcement was made  here today of the closing of the deal  for the sale ofthe Crow's Nest Coal  Co.'s mines and business to American  smeller interests. The amount of  slock' secured was the contioiling  interest and the amount that is understood to have been paid the Canadian  owners of the great coal fields was $00  pershave. This is the culmination of a  big deal hy which .Tallies J. Hill,* of the  Great Northern Railway, and .associated wilh him two other prominent  ("tphalisls, .1. Pierpont Morgan and .1.  D. Rockefeller, have become, the  owners of the highest grade coal mines  in Western Canada.  It, will be of gieat advantage to the  American smelters, who will-be able to  use the coke produced.) This move is  viewed with much apprehension by  the British Columbia smelter interests  the Crow's Nest field being their onlv  source of coke supply. SO THAT THE  AMERICAN TRUST IS TO BE CONGRATULATED ON A ' VERY  TACTFUL MOVE, AS THE BRITISH  COLUMBIA SMELTERS ARE DEPRIVED OF, A VERY GREAT  ESSENTIAL IN TIIE DEVELOPMENT -'OF THEIR INDUSTRY.  Application has already been made to  the Dominion parliament for a charter  for a line of railway from tlie coal  mines in Crow's Nest Pass to connect  with the Great Northern system, so  that transportation to the American  smelters will thus he nbsolntely controlled.  The coke and other products from  the mines is of a very high gtade and  ir. great demand by (he American  smelters. The coke will be distributed throughout Montana-and ns far  south as Omaha and the advantage to  American mining, interests will he  very'great. Several weeks ago, when  the permanent shipment of coke to the  American side was first suggested, the  Canadian Pacific Railway people put  up a very strong fight in an endeavor  to head off: the Gi eat Nor! hern in, any  arrangement, they' might ,attempt,  although the deal, as consummated,  has been under negotiation and prattle illy settled for some time.  The. opposition of the Canadian  railway was based on the shortage of  coke that -would result, lo the Kootenay smelters in which the Canadian  Pacific Railway was interested.' if  large shipments eon! inued to lie. made  to the American side of the line,' Bul  the opposition of the- Canadian Pacific  Railway was futile, and the announcement of the deal is made on the hest  authority.  The Special Meeting.  A special meeting of the council was  held ou Monday night, all the members present.  The bylaw authorising (he city to  purchase the plant of the Revelstoke  Water. Light & Power Co. for the .sum  of $89,075 was read three times and  the date on whicli it will bepie-senled  lo the propel ty owners lo be voted on  was set for March 20lh.  A deputation consisting of Rev. C.  A. Procnnier. B. R. Atkins. C. H.  Temple, XV, B. Pool, K. llowson. F.  G. Fauquier and I.T. Brewster waited  on the council and asked them to  guarantee the interest and sinking  fund on a loan of SIOOO which the  hospital trustees intend lo make for  building purposes. After considerable'  discussion Iho matter was referred to  the fintnii e committee of the council lo  report on.nt their next .meeting. .The  council then adjourned but before the  mayor and aldermen had left the  council chamber the very respectable  sum of $023 was subscribed among  themselves towards the erection ofthe  proposed hospital.  .

Complain of  Taxation   on  the   Idming^  _In'dustry_in.British CoJumbjaJL^ASignifij;  cant Interview.  A Herald representative obtained  an interview last week with Mr. J.  Douglas Walker, K. C. and Mr. A. O.  ICirby, the two reptesentatives ot h  group of London, Eng.. capitalists  who recently came out prepared to  invest hugely in L.irdeau milling  properties.  Both gentlemen expressed _ themselves enthusiatically in regard to the  marvellous resources of the province  generally ana the undoubted mineral  wealth of the' Lardeau pnrticu-  l.iry. Mr. Kirby, who has ulrendy in  company with Mr. Herbert Godsal,of  London, visited the Nettie L, May Bee  und other mines in the district, is  therefore fully qualified to give an  opinion. He said I here was no question iu the mind of himself unci his  associates that'the Lardeau offers a  most promising Held lor lhe investment of English capital on a huge  scale, line, theie undoubtedly existed  some alarm at the amount and incidence of the Luxation imposed by t.he  provincial government on the mining  industry.  "As, the mining industry is  beginning , to take a foremost place  among lhe industries of the country."  said Mr. Walker, "and is really at the  foundation of all the other industries,  building up towns aud cilies and  furni-hing a market imt only" for tln-  goods of the wholesale merchants, but  for lhe products of thu three other  most important, industries of, the  piovinCe, viz., lumbering, furiniu.! nnd  fishing, it seems that Lhe time has  couie* when llie taxation on mining  should lie revised. Miners, in common with traders, are called on to pay  an annual license fee, and in regard to  this there is perhaps no ground for  complaint, except (hut in the. mining  states to the south and in Ontario and  Quebec no such fee is imposed. He  next has to pay for recording a claim  a fee of $2 50* and for recoi ding his  outlay, which has been' for the ulti-  m-ite benefit of the state, he has to  p-iy :i fee of S2.50 each year for five,  ye.-us. After doing his five years  work nnd paying the fees 1 have, men  tinned it costs him several hundred  dollars to secure a crown grant, .All I  this must be expended betore there is  Where will you Buy the Materials?

TOM  TAYLOR'S SPEECH.  Very Much   to   the   Point   on   School'  Matters, Government Ownership,   the  Mini::.? and  Smelting Industries. and-  the Two Per Gent Tax.  In the debate on lhe   address  Thos.  Taylor M. P, P. made a   very   sensible  and     practical     speech     which     tile  .  Colonist thought    good    enough    to-  lepioduce in full and from   which   \ve-  roproduce the nios*t   important   utter-"  ances, all our  limited   space  permits.  .Mr. Taylor said:  It is- intimated in the Speech that  a  measure will he introduced to  amend  the   School   Act.   and   certainly   one  piovince nas reached that state when"  r-nmelhing in that direction is   necess-'  ary.   The expendituie   iu  connection  with this department of   the   government now amounts to about  $300,000;  and has been   constantly  and rapidly  increasing���������so much so,   fndeed;   iliac  some ways and  means   must   now   he'  provided for the carrying out of  our'  educational system tons high   a   state  of perfection as it is possible for   it   lo"  attain.  The speech intimates that a measure"  will he bionght down with a  view   to  aiding the construction   of  a   line   of  railway   from   the   Kootenay   to   the  Coast; and also to   the   north   end   of  Vancouver Island: and also   from   the'*  Coast to the northern confines  of   the-  province: and. while 1 fully recognize  the necessity for the extension of rail-'  ways in these  directions���������particularly"  the one from the Coast to  Kootenay���������   '-  vet I feel a dread of coming evil to the  province in the system   of  constantly  bonusing railroads���������in fact paying  foe"  their construction in   some  instances,-  and   having   no   control    over   their  freight  and*  passenger   rates���������and   1"  -incerely   hope,   if   the     government  can ies through this measure, that the" -  rights of the public will  be fully  safe-  gti.nded in this connection.    I do   not  think   that   wc     could    expect     our'  province to  nuclei take   such   gigantic  operations.'entailingas they will many'  millions of dollars: but 1 do   think" tlie"  government ownership of all' railways",  is a matter which the federal   govern-"  ment-should and   will" be, obliged   to"  take into consideration'before   uianV"  years.  A gieat deal of   useful^ information- ,  ha-s been given as lo the   farming   and'  dairying interests  and   cither I'lntur.-tl ,,.-  products of the soil, but IHielicvu; Lhe" :'  government has not lost eight', of 'the'  fact that the mining  inda\try   is   the  backbone of o'ur  provincial 'revenue':  and,    while    several     matters     have  occured in recent years to   retard- the  development of tliis industry���������  partly  by legislative  enactments���������I     would'  caution the   government  to   exercise'  the very wisest caution before" making,  nny amendments to the act, or   enact-'  ing any laws which will   in   a'ny   way  retard or   cripple   this   fast*  growing'  industry.   The imposition lust  session"  of a 2 p". C. l.-ix on ore values, -less "costV  of freight and treatment, is  felt very  seriously indeed   by   the   lower-grade'  producers,*-and the principal and great -  objection is that it bears most   heavily  ,  on   the   propel ties   which  can'    least  afford it. ' I therefore   hope   that   the1",  government can see their way clear to'. ,-  take into   consideration   the" co-,ts. of.'.  mining, say jjg~ftn S3 oer ton,"as well as"  the freight and ti-e:il,i"iienLch'aiges, and'  thus have the tax effect only   Lhe   net ���������  proceeds of oie.    I am   sure"  it" would  relieve thesituation very.ccmsideiably,  and at the same time   I   am  confident-  the increased output would soon make  up for the slight loss that would ohlaiii'-  for a short time in the levcuue of 'the'  province.  . 1 wasniu.ch pleased to   hear   the re  marks \vKit'lrfri"y"frien"d"^lh"e-^Tiicmbc"r*���������  fnrSloc-m. made   in   connection   with  the smelting industry in   the   interior  on the floorof this house   a  few   days-  ago.- Iain   happy   in   being .able   ii)^  corrohoi ate .ill   he   said,   aud   I   "can-  assure this house   that   the   situation  of thc  lead-producing  mines   in   the  inteiior is imperilled today  owing   to  the action of the gigantic octopu.-. that,  monopoly   known   as   the    American"  Smell mg & Rclining   Co.

Although they  may not he engaged in actual fighting their work will be on occasions  of a hazardous nature. They will  have little chance of engaging in  actual warfare- but it to them that  will be entrusted the work of pacify-  ine the country and many a shot in  dark and outpost attack will be  their portion.  We do not grudge them to the cause  but we wish them "God speed", preservation from tho perils that may  beset them and a safe and speedy return.

E. .H Cudahy is in receipt of a lei-  tor bearing Crowe's signature. The  hand writing has been tested by comparison and It is the opinion of the  Pinkertons, Chief Donahue nnd other  authorities that the signature Is genuine. The letter is dated South Omaha,  February 15, but the envelope indicated that It had heen mailed in  Omaha.  Owing to the fact that the letter la  now in the Pinkerton office. Chicago,  ancl that no ������copy was retained here,  Mr. Cudahy Is unable to repeat it  verbally. Chief Donahue and Mr.  Cudahy have made its contents known  however. Crowe explains that he had  heard the Omaha police are looking  for him. and believe him to be one  of the kidnappers of Edward Cudahy jr.  He maintainse he is Innocent, ancl  says he has no knowledge of thn  affair, with the exception of what he  has- read in the newspapers. Ho  says he will drop into Omaha somp  day and prove himself innocent, and  that he would have done so long ago  had he not been afraid that he might  suffer the fate ofthe negro who was  lynched  at  Leavenworth.  Crowe says Omaha "people must  have cooled off' by this time, and, expresses the opinion that he will.soon  he able to come here with safety.  ,He makes an appeal to the "chief of  police and Mr. Cudahy for protection,  and says he will expect them to  stand between him and violence.  In conclusion he says he Is much  hurt to think that Mr. Catidahy suspects hm of being guilty of the kidnapping, and expresses his appreciation of the kindness Mr. Cudahy has  shown him in the past.  "When 1 received this letter.'" says  Mr. Cudahy, "1 was determined not  to take too much for granted, so I  sent it to Chicago, as I knew Mr-  Pinkerton had samples o������ Crowe's  handwriting, and could be able to  identify it without difficulty.  "A few days later I heard from Mr,  Pinkerton. Ho said he had compared  tho writing with a sample nf Crowe's  chirograph}- and that they were the  same beyond question.  "I would not be surprised if Crowe  should show himself almost at once.  I believe the "letter was written in  good faith. I don't think the letter  was written in either Omaha or South  Omaha. It bore the* date line. 'SouLl:  Omaha.  Neb-.

It will certainly be a very  exclusive one.v  Ia a very careful editorial the  Farmers' Sun comments somewhat  adversely upon the Manitoba railway  deal. ft says that it seems that the  Manitoba government has got itself  into a difficult position by assuming  the bonded indebtedness of the Canada Northern. It voices a fear that  the liabilities will become too  heavy for thc local governmeat and  that the  Dominion  will  be .asked  to  take it over. This it points out from  an Ontario standpoint will be the  most serious feature of the affair. The  Sua is right. There are many other  considerations in the matter than  those purely local to Manitoba.

Chief of Police  Newton received a telephone message  from Peterboro to arrest a young  man named William Paterson 22  years of age. who would arrive on  the 11:10 train from Peterboro. Paterson was charged with havins lu  his possession a dead body, the same  being in a trunk. The chief found  his man and arrestc-d him. The trunk  was placed in charge of thn authorities. This afternoon Chief Roszel.  of Peterboro. arrived here, and took  the prisoner back to Peterboro.  The charge against Paterson .Is  that he did improperly interfere with,  and offer indignity to a dead human  body, the same not heing buried. The  maximum penalty in a proven offense  by section 20C of the Criminal Code  is five years' imprisonment. The  prisoner refus-d to talk. He has  been recognized as a former resident  of Peterboro. who has of late been In  attendance at Queen's college, KI'*gs-  tor..  The corpse in the trunk Is that of a  man in a fair state of preservation,  ws-iching about 130 pounds. It is  believed to have been stolen from  some graveyard not far from Peterboro.

Some of  the burghers replied that thoy did  not see how they could fight much  longer as the British were destroying  all tbe crops and capturing all the  cattle and sheep, while the ammunition was nearly exhausted, save  about six rounds. When this is gone,  they said, where shall we get more.  General Botha said that the Lord  would provide them with means ol  lighting.

Randolph said. "I have  never tried to run your house," at the  ���������same time stepping toward Sullivan.  Sullivan drew h revolver and ordered  him out of the house. Randolph  said: "I will go," and went out and  closed the door. He shortly returned witha shot gun, held it. in one  hand by his side, with the muzzle on  the fioor.

That his explanation was not satisfactory was evidenced .that a jeering,  howling mob of 500 people followed  him to the street car and were only  prevented from violence from the fact  that they had no leader.  His appearance in the crowd called  forth a number of suggestions, none  of which were executed.

Interesting Interview with  Mr.  W. A  Griesbach, Just Returned.  "Billy" Griesbach tells some funny  stories about campaigning in South  Africa. The other day he regaled  half a dozen auditors in the office ot  the Post for a couple of hours with  amusing recollections of the war,  says the Edmonton Post.  "What became of Charlie Ross who  used to be at Battleford and went out  with the Mounted Rifles," asked Jack  Mercer.  "Charlie is one of the greatest  characters ln Africa," answered  "Billy." He is a typica western man  taxi ha conducted himself out there  with an abandon worthy of the west.  You know he was a lieutenant, and  he was one of the best officers we  had, a perfect dare-devil and brave.  Near Nudoleburg he came into possession of a- small band of horses.  They had belonged to Boers but now  they were Charlie's, and being somewhat run down, he put them out to  pasture on a nearby abandoned  farm. One day a general of another  corps went along that way and see  Ing the horses and thinking them to  be Boer horses commandeered them  and had them driven oft tn his camp.  Charlie discovered his loss and finding where his horses had gone, wrote  to the general demanding ihe return  of his property. Not getting a  reply, he wrote again,' threatening  if the horses were not returned he  would go over to the general's camp  and horsewhip him. This roused the  general and he reported Charlie's offensive' correspondence to General  Hutton, commander of -the brigade in  which the Mounted "Rifles were.  General Hutton summoned Charlie  and explained to him the gravity of  the offence' he had committed. "But  why didn't this man answer my letters?"-, queried  Charlie.      "You  must  not  speak  of   General as  'this man' you know" was Hutton's  reproof. "Why didn't this man answer my letters" persisted Charlie,  who was very much hurt at tb������ lack  of courtesy on - General    :���������'s  part. Everything" could have been  fixed if the general, 'this man' had  answered his letters..,;.-He ciuns to  that position "wiHi doggednessl: and  Hutton could do nothing uut "reprimand him. '!I'm going." .iesponded  Ch-irlie. "Gim'me my time," vz\i. be  wp-e working b7 the cay. This" wai  always the conclusion or any difference he had with General Hutton to  demand "hi3 time." When ixeneral  Hutton left Charlie left also. ' We all  wondered what he intended, doin^. Kc  astounded all of us by commandeering a Boer farm noar .Pretoria, all  the waggons and steel, thereon and  setting up as a farmer. He dug up  :i!l the vegetables' on thc place and  Uking them to Pretoria sold tnem at  war prices to the inhaoitarts. Then  he got together a." band of horses and  turned them out on his ranche. He  j'ortifie'd the place and he removed all  obstaces round about 'so that he  should not ne taken by surnnso in  the evening. There he lives alone  nave for nis Kaffir retinue-' * He  always goes about - armed with two  Mauser revolvers and his Mauser  rifle is always handy and" he' is loaded with ammunition to .meet" emergencies. Before we left, the Boers  ran off three of his horses and Charlie  was very indignant. He started out  and rounding about 50 head of Boer  cattle, drove .them to Pretoria and  sold them by way of reprisal, for  Charlie is a thoroughly practical man.
