 DAILY EDITION   BY  MAiL  FIVE   DOLLARS A YEAR  WEEKLY EDITION   BY MAIL  TWO  DOLLARS A YEAR  EIGHTH  YEAR  NELSON:  THURSDAY MORNING, JANUARY 18,  1900.  PRICE  FIVE  CENTS.  MINE-OWNERS' PROTEST IN  Against tiie Eight-Hour Law.  '      Vi'TomA, .January  17.���[Special  to The Tribune.]���hi the legislature  today Mru-tin of llossland presented  the petition signed by twenty-three  of the principal mine-owners of his  district     protesting    against    the  ,  eight-hour    law.       This   petition,  nearly a column long, sets out how  thoy   were  taken by  surprise  by  tliis legislation, when  they should  have been allowed to  bo  heard on  the subject before its  passage, and  that it was a great surprise to  the  working miners.     The  petitioners  narrate the pleasant and profitable  relations hitherto existing between  owners and workers, and continue:  "Speaking in the light of experience  I-*"- during the months that tho law has  been in operation, your petitioners  state as a fact that  it  will  be impossible for all mine-owners to continue     to      pay     the      rate     of  wages      for      eight      hours      of  labor     that      they   " have     been  paying for ten hours.    The expense  of   carrying  on   the  work  in   the  mines   that are  at present  being  operated is so great that the  same  has   become  burdensome  and  un-  ' remunerative. Thenecessaryaltern-  ative will be a reduction of wages,  and upon such reduction, speaking  ���in  the   light   of   experience,  your  petitioners-arc afraid consequences  will ensue that will greatly retard  the progress of mining in the 'Kootenays.'  _    --Your     petitioners     desire    to  emphasize tlio fact that large sums  of British  and  Eastern  Canadian  capital were invested in the mines  and mineral claims throughout the  Kootenays before the passage of the  law   in   question,   and  your  petitioners submit that it is  unfair  to  those   who  invested  their   money  that they should be discriminated  against, as they have been  by  tho  passing of the eight-hour law.  "Your   petitioners   submit' that  'the law. complained of is unconstitutional, as  the  same is imposing  "Tin unwarrantable" restriction upon  the right to contract; that the privilege of contracting is both a liberty  and'a right wliich has been enjoyed  by British 'subjects  from time immemorial, and  that any legislation  such as  that complained of, which  ���prevents the 'making  of contracts,  is an interference with the freedom  qf   contracting between' workmen  ���and'employer; and further, that the  passing of the law in question is an  unfair  discrimination   against  the  industry" of   metalliferous   mining,  aud deprives  persons  employed in  metalliferous mining  of tho privileges allowed  to  and, enjoyed  by-  other persons under like conditions  in other mines.  "Tho petitioners, therefore, ask  that such action be taken by the  legislature of British Columbia as  will grant a restoration of their  rights by* ei their tho repeal or  amendment of. the section complained of."  THE DAY AT THE CAPITAL  Very little Fighting.  *  Vktohia, .January 17���[Special  to the Tribune].-���-The debate onthc  address occupied the house all after-,  noon, but the members of tho opposition did nearly all the talking, it  evidently having been arranged on  the government side not to reply.  Two members of tho ' opposition  were absent today, one being D, W.  Iliggiiis, who has for several days  been confined to his house with an  attack of bronchi ti.*-. A division  would therefore have given the  government a substantial majority.*  Tho standing committee.- for the  session were struck today. As customary the leader of tho government named his choice of supporters for tho majority of each, aud  the leader of the opposition named  the remaining members. When  this process was completed H. D.  Jlolnicken innocently remarked that  some members of the house seemed  to have escaped duty altogether,  and ho suggested that the proper  way would be to find places for all  the members, so as to divide the  work as evenly as* possible. Mr.  Semlin replied, however, that he  had no change to suggest, and  there the matter ended for the present.  A scrutiny of the list reveals the  fact that Messrs. Higgins and Martin do not figure on any of the  committees.     Semlin,    of   course, '  could not name them, and Turner  in a sense considered them as members outside the government ranks  and evidently would not. Thus the  two most experienced parliamentarians in the legislature become  political.outcasts. What form their  resentment will take is an interesting subject for speculation.  CLOSING IN ON THE BOERS  Crossing of tho Tugela.  Loxdo.v, January IS.���The Times  publishes the following dispatch  from Spcarsina.ns farm, dated January ��� 17th :������ "By a forced march  westward on January 10th lord  Dundonald by a dashing movement  occupied the hills above Potgiesters  drift, fifteen miles west of Colenso,  taking the Boers completely by  surprise. The same evening the infantry followed.  "General Lyttleton's brigade  crossed tho river yesterday, and today shelled the Boer trenches beyond with howitzers.  "General Warren's force is now  crossing at Trichardie drift, five  miles above. lie is not opposed,  although the Boers are holding a  position five miles from the river.  Loxi.ox, January IS.���Tho other  morning papers are out with extra  editions, confirming the dispatches  from Spearman's farm to the Times.  The Daily Telegraph's, correspondent under yesterday's" date says :  "I am permitted to wire from  Spearman's farm that general  Lyttloton yesterday afternoon  ferried and forded Potgiester's  drift, and seized'with little opposition, a line of low ridges a mile  from there. During, the night ar  Howitzer battery -was- carried  across. Today from Mount Alice  near Swartz Kop, naval guns and  Howitzers effectively shelled the  Boer position, which is strong.  General Warren also today crossed  the Tugela six miles farther to tho  west, near Wagondrift, with 'all  arms 'in the face of a heavy fiie  from Boor cannon and rifles*. He  lias effected .a most satisfactory  lodgment two miles further on  toward Sproen Kop."  BATTLES   AT   LADYSMITH  Were Serious Affairs.  London, January IS.���The Standard publishes the following dispatch from Ladysniith, dated January Oth, by way of Frere, January  17: "The enemy today made a determined effort to capture two  positions, GYesar's camp and Wagon  hill. C.-esar's camp was held by  the first battalion of the Manchester regiment. In the early hours  of the morning the Heidelburg  command succeeded in evading our  pickets, making their  way through  IWETHUEN HAS A SKIRMISH  With Boers Near Kimberley.  _ Moi-Di-it. Rivi.i., Capo Colony,  January 17.���There was a demonstration in force yesterday under  general Methiien, a division being  engaged with the object of ascertaining the strength and disposition of tho Boer force, and also in  order to try to withdraw the  Boots from Kimbcrlej', where  they have been active lately.  Tho British discovered the Boers hi  great force, and being reinforced  from the direction of Jacobsdale.

Firing *was continued until sunset, mostly with artillery, although tho Guards on the  right fired sonic long range volleys.  The Boers reserved their fire until  tho British were returning to camp  in the darkness, when six .-.hells  followed them. There' were no  casualties among the British troops.  Mining Company Elect Officers.  JvAsi.o, .January 17.���At a meet-  -ing of tho directors of the Lodestar  (.old Mining <.". Development Company, hold in- Kaslo, .J. C. Blythe  was elected president and treasurer,  I "rank Conruyt vice-president and  S, S. Connauton ' manager and  secretary. A resolution was adopted transferring the head office from  Kaslo to -London, 1'ugland, and  James F. Smith and James D.  Cailyle retire from the -board. A  statement; of accounts was .submitted and passed unanimously and a  report was presented respecting the  development of the mine", which  was of a most satisfactory and encouraging character, the main lead  at a depth of 37 feet, being Ki feet  wide, containing an ore shute of l.'_  feet high grade concentrating rock,  Mr. Connauton having been much  complimented on the able manner  in which he had carried on the  work.

The alarm was raised by our sentries, but before the full extent of  the danger could be realized the  outlying Saugars had been rushed  and their defenders slain.  On hearing the firing two companies of the Gordon Highlanders  went to the assistance of the Man-  chesters. At first it was thought  that tho Boers were concentrating  on the southern slope, where they  had already secured a footing on  the pleateau. Here, however, their  advance was checked by the steady  volleys of our infantry and the  deadly fire of an automatic gun.  Lieutenant Grubb went out to  see if any aid were needed by the  troops stationed on the i-idge near  the town. He was not" aware that  the enemy had already-captured  the breastworks and called out to  the sergeant. He received the received the reply, "Here"I; am sir,"  and then he suddenly disappeared  from sight. Captain Carnegie suspected a ruse and ordered the Gordons to fire a volley and to charge.  The enemy, thereupon fell back  precipitated!y, leaving behind the  oflieer whom they had captured  with so much presence of mind.  The lieutenant was quite unhurt.  "By daybreak reinforcements of  Gordon Highlanders and the rifle  brigade had been hurried up to the  fighting line. . -Lieutenant-colonel  Diek-Cunyng, who was leading the  Gordons out of cam']), fell mortally  wounded, being hit'-by a stray bullet, while still close to .them. Tho  iltlrd battery of field artillery, under  major Abbey, crossed the Klip river  ��� and shelled the ridge and the reverse slope of the front position,  where the enemy were lying among  the bushes. In their efforts to escape lumbers of the enemy flung  themselves into the current and  were swept away. The struggled in  their part of tho field was now ended, and tho finale was a terrificfusi-  lade all along the line, the crash of  which almost drowned tho incessant  thunder above.  "Meanwhile a more exciting contest was in progress in the direction  of Wagonhill. At two o'clock a  storming party furnished by the  llarrismitli commando crept slowly  and cautiously along a donga in the  valley which divides our posts from  their cam]). At the same time the  Hussars j and the Fifth Lancers  _cl.ee__ed__the _nio_vemenb__from _the  spruit on our right flank. Nevertheless our position at this point  had become'critical. Major Bowen  rallied a few rifles, but "fell while  lead ing,them to charge. His exam-  *plo was at once followed by lieutenant Todd, but .the latter met tho*  auiii' fate.  Tho enemy were making good the  footing, they had already secured in  the emplacement, when major Miller Walnutt, calling the scattered  Gordons together, charged in and  drove them back. Having thus  cleared the ground he joined lieutenant IJigby-Joi.es in .-_ newly prepared emplacement on the western  shoulder. A" pause ensued for' a  time, but the Boers were not yet  finally beaten. Taking advantage  of the storm now raging, they  essayed to capture the position by  another rush. Three of their leaders  reached the parapet, but were shot  down by lieutenant Digby Jones  and major Walnut', the latter  of whom also fell.  will reach Halifax!about the 25th  instant, aud will be ready to start  for South Africa a week later.

With the exception of  some odds and ends, all equipment  and outfitting have been forwarded  to Halifax.

AN   EDUCATIONAL  CENTER  MACERSFONTEIN DISASTER  To Transport the Canadians.  Ottawa, January 17.���It has  been as good as settled that the  steamer Milwaukee, of the Elder-  Dempster line, will replace the  Montezuma. Tiie Milwaukee is now  on its way to Buenos Ayres for a-  load of mules for the imperial government, in South Africa. The  steamer has been gone some days,  but as it is calling at a port on its  way south for coal, communication  can be had with it, and it will  be brought back to Halifax. The  Montezuma will be sent for mules,  it is expected that the Milwaukee  Graphically{Described.  London, January 17.���The Daily  Mail correspondent"';has giveil the  most graphic account of the slaughter of general "Wauchope's Highlanders at Magersfonteiu. He  writes: "During; the night it was  considered expedient that the Highland brigade, about 400 strong, under geneaal' Wauehope, should get  close enough to tiie lines' of the foe  to make -it possible to charge the  heights. At midnight the gallant  but ill-fated men moved cautiously  through the darkness, toward  the kopje where* the Boers were  most strongly entrenched. They  were led by a guide, who .was -'sup-  posed to -know., every inch of the  country, out intO;.the darkness of  an African night.; So* onward until  three o'clock on Monday, then out  of the darkness a rifle, rang, sharp  and clear, a herald _of disaster, a  soldier had tripped*in the darkness  over the hidden wires laid down by  the enemy. In a .second, in a;',  twinkling of ah eye the searchlights'  of the Boers fell broad and clear as  the noonday sun on the ranks of  the doomed Highlanders, though it  left the euemy concealed in the  shadows of the frowning mass of  hills behind them.  For one brief moment the Scots  seemed paralyzed by the suddenness of their discovery, for they  knew that they were 'huddled to-  ^gothe'r like sheep within fifty yards  of the trenches or the foe.- Then,  clear above the confusion rolled the  voice of the general, "steady men,.  steady " and like an echo to , the  veteran's cry out,came the crash of  nearly a -thousand rifles, not fifty  paces from them. The Highlanders  reeled befoie the shock like trees  before the tempest. Their best,  their bravest fell in that wild hail  of lead. General Wauehope was  down, riddled with bullets, yet,  gushing; dying, bleeding from every  vein, the Highland chief raised  himself on his hands aud knees and  cheered his men forward.  Men and officers fell in heaps together. The Black Watch charged  and the Gordons and Seaforths,  with a yell that stirred the British  camp below, rushed onward, onward to death or disaster. The ac-  cussed wires caught them around  the legs until they floundered like  trapped wolves, and all the time  the-rifles- of-the-foe -sang the  song of death iu their ears.  Then they foil back, broken  and beaten, leaving' nearly 1300  dead and wounded, just where the  broad breast of the grassy veldt  melts into tho embrace of the rugged African hills, aiid an hour later  the dawning came of the doariest  day, that Scotland has known for  generations past. ' Of her, oflieer,-.,  the flower of hcrchivalry, the pride  of her breeding, but few remained  to tell the tale, a sad tale truly, but  one -.Mutinied with dishonor or  smirched with disgrncp, for up  those heights under similar circumstances, even a brigade of devils  could scarce have hoped to pass'.  All that morla! men could do, the  Scots did. They tried, they failed.  They fell and there is nothing left  us now but to mourn for them and  avenge them.  London'. January 17.���A relative  of general Buller is reported to have  received a cablegram from the general yesterday to the effect that his  force was occupying a strong position. It is nothing but a rumor,  however.  London, January 17.-*-A special  dispatch from Cape Town, dated today, says general G-itaero has protested to the Boer commandant at  Stormberg against allowing wives  and daughters of Boer soldier.*, to  reside iu or near the camp.  Loi-iiNJ-OMA��qt:JM, January 15.���  A dispatch by way of Beira, dated  Thursday, January lith, announces  that colonel Plum met- has arrived  near Mochudi, about one luuidicd  miles north of Mafeking with a  portion of his forces from Tutli.  Is What Nelson Is.  One of tho important features in  the   growth   and  progress  of  the  city of Nelson  during the  present  year promises to be its development  along educational lines.    The queen  city of the Kootenays has an undisputed  right  to  boast  of material  prosperity, fine business blocks, important industrial enterprises, modern municipal arrangements and a  rapidly growiug residential district,  to which must now be added  first-  class   facilities   for  educating  the  rising generation, on  whose shoulders  the  task  of maintaining the  city's integrity will eventually rest.  The public schools are naturally"  closer to the hearts of citizens than  any other of tho educational  institutions.   Nelson   has   the   Central  and the Hume Addition schools for  its-children, with  a  high school as  one of the gifts which  the near future holds" in  hand.    The  Central  school is familiar  to all  readers of  The Tribunk.    When  built a few  years   since   it  comprised    but   a  couple   of   rooms.     The  structure  was, speedily overcrowded, and its  capacity was  doubled.    Once more  the  rising  tide of school  children  overtook the capacity,of the school,  and two  rooms  were lidded.    This  was  repeated  last  year  until  the  school now has eight rooms and an  actual attendance of 350 scholars;  Principal J. tt. Soady is surrounded  by a capable staff  of teachers, the  personnel   being   as  follows:   Miss  Campbell,   assistant  principal;   G.  W.   Clark,  second  assistant;   Miss  Nora  O'Reilly, Miss MeLeod,  Miss  Wickliahi  and   Mrs; Pearcy.    The  school ranks high iii theTestimation  of citizens and has achieved ah excellent;   reputation    for   efficiency.  Alderman Hall is  chairman of  the  board of trustees,  the other  members  being  alderman   Arthur  and  George Johnstone.  The Hume addition*public school  will shortly be opened for pupils.  Its erection was the outcome of a  demand on the part of citizens  residents in Fair view for school  facilities nearer home -than the  central. A comfortable building is  practically'completed and on ' February 1st it will be opened to  pupils.  The Nelson'high school is in embryo as yet,* but citizens,are familiar with the fact that the city  council, and other influential ,organizations have taken tho initial  steps toward securing tho high  school.  A new educational element was  introduced into Nelson a short time  since when Miss A. M.. Palmer  opened her kindergarten classes* in  St. Saviour's school. Miss Palmer  is a certified graduate of the kindergarten ti a ining school at Victoria,  and has had a practical training in  tho schools of the capital. At the  present time she has a class' of  thirty bright little ones who seem  to thoroughly enjoy their exercises*  and classes which arc carried on  -daily. ,- Miss -Nicholson -is--, ssistant  directress. A visit to the kindergarten will repay any ].arent for  the time expended.      * ���   *  Another new educational enterprise is that shortly to be inaugurated by the sisters of St. Joseph of  Peace on Josephine street. A temporary building is now under way  and will be ready for occupation  by February 1st.* In the spring  a commodious *.<-hool building will  be erected at the corner of Josephine and Mill streets, and the  building now under way will be relegated to gymnasium purpose,*..  The school, will be operated on the  same line.*, adopted in similar institutions in i'nghiud, the sisters in  charge having been trained in  England and sent direct to Nelson.  It was originally intended-to defer  the opening until the school proper  was* erected in tho spring, but the  sisters were urged to take immediate action and have done so.  The course of instruction will comprise all the. usual branches of a  thorough J'-iiglish education, while  younger pupils will have special  studies suited to their age, due  attention being given to physical  drill and deportment. Sisters possessing certificates from the educational department, Whitehall, London, and who have a wide experience  iu preparing pupils for Oxford,  Cambridge, and other great ecu tics,  will take charge of the classes. At  present the sisters have accommodation for a limited number of  boarding pupils aud have arranged  for special instruction to adult  pupils.  Among institutions which  have  recently sprung into prominence in  Nelson, none has been received with  greater enthusiasm than the Nelson  Business College,  which  began  its  career with the new year, and has  already outgrown its  first habitation, a commodious house on Victoria  street.   The proprietors are  looking about for larger and more  convenient quarters.     It is not unlikely that in  the near future  a  building will  be  erected  specially  designed for col lege purposes though  no definite plans have as yet been  formulated.    -Larger premises are,  however, imperative.    The college  is unique inasmuch as its proprietors  and   principals   are   ladies.      Mrs.  Rattray, the principal, is one of the  oldest business educators in Canada,  her   experience   extending  over  a  period    of    twenty .years.      The  methods taught in the college are  of the most practical  and  modern  nature, graduating students  being  fitted for business, life by actual ex_  perience in  business   transactions.  The night school has proven highly  successful and constantly growing  in attendance.    The proprietors are  delighted  with  their reception   in  Nelson and are looking forward to  the development of a business school  second   to   none  in  the  province.  It is the features referred to  in  the foregoing  wliich  are  to  make  Nelson the educational  as  well  as  the commercial centre of the Kootenays. ;',.,--    .- -.-������...��� -'  SONS OF ENGLAND DINNER  Proved a Pleasant Affair.

London-,   January   17.���Some of  the most brilliant work in the way  of descriptive writing ever done by  war  correspondents   has  been appearing in the  Loudon papers during the  last  few days.    After tracing  tho  terrible loss  suffered by  the Highland brigade at Magersfonteiu, the Daily News correspondent  thus writes of the burial of general  Wauehope:    "Three hundred yards  to the rear of the little township of  Modeler river, just as the sun was  sinking in a blaze of African splendor on the evening of -Tuesday, the  12th of December,  a  long, shallow  grave lay exposed  in the breast of  the veldt.   To the westward a broad  river, fringed with trees; runs niur-  muringly   to   the   eastward;    the  heights   still   held   by the  enemy  scowled menacingly north and south'.  A few paces  to the .northward'of  that grave fifty dead Highlanders  lay dressed as  they had fallen  on  the field of battle.    They had foi- '  lowed their chief to the field, and  they were to follow him to the grave.  How   grim   and stern   those  men  looked as they lay face upward to  the sky,with great hands clenched in  their   last agony,  and  brows still  (  knit   with  the   stern lust  of   the  strife   in  which   they had  fallen.  The plaids, dear to every  Highland  clan, were represented there, and as  I looked."out of the  distance   came  the .'sound  of pipes.     It  was  the  general coming to join.his men.  There right under the eyes of the  enemy moved with slow and solemn  tread-all that remained of the nigh-.  land brigade. In front walked the  chaplain with bared head, dressed  iii his robes of ollice. Then came  the pipers Avith their pipes, sixteen  in all, and behind them with arms  reversed, moved the Highlanders,  dressed in all the regalia of their  regiments, and in the midst of the  dead general, borne by four of his  comrades.    ' "  Right*,up   to    tho    grave"  they  marched, then broke away in  companies until the general lay  in  the  shallow grave with a Scottishsquare  of armed jnen   around  him. , Only  -the dead  man's son   and  a small  remnant of his officers, stood with  the.chaplaiuaiid pipers while the  solemn service  of the church was.  spoken. ' Then^onco again the pipes /  pealed    out    and   "Loch Aber  Na ���  Mare" cut through the stillness like  a cry of pain, until   one could  al- ,  most hear the widow iu   her  Highland horn... moaning for.the'soldier '���  she would welcome back  no more.  Then, as if touched by tho magic of  one  thought,   the   soldiers  turned  their  tenr-daiupcd   eyes  from the  still form in the shallow  grave toward  the  height*-   where   Cronje,  '���The Lion  of Africa" and  his  soldiers stood.

Mr. llcckmnnu was asked by  recorder Golf if he had ever been  promised anything or offered any  inducementslo testify as ho had,  but the denial of the witness was  clear and emphatic.

WEIR, Men's Outfitter.  3bhc Sfribmte*  Tiik organ of the mine-owners  association yesterday took it upon  itself to discus the little unpleasantness which cropped out for  the .members of the (Hall Mines)  smelter band after the recent municipal-election.     The Miner  stated:  (1) that the leader of  tho  band���I.  H. Millward���had  been  dismissed ;  (2) that the band was no longer iu  existence; and (.'3) that the former  band would be reorganized as a  city band with vhtually-the same  membership. The usual objection  must be taken to those, as to most  other statements appearing in tho  Minor, which is that thoy are not  true. J. II. Millward, the loader of  the band, denies that he has been  dismissed. True, he has received  an intimation to the effect that his  salary as leader of the band has  been discontinued on account of the  band's participation in the Houston election procession, but he has  not been dismissed. With regard  to the Miner's second statement,  Mr. Millward says that the smelter  band' is still in existence ; that it  has regular practices and that he is  still leader, whether with salary or  without. As to reorganization,  such was talked of as a consequence  of Mr. Millward severing his connection with the band, but nothing  definite has been arrived at.  Til.". Miner always makes a mess  of everything that it undertakes to  champion. It is now championing  the cause of the local contractors  in their efforts to obtain the work  " it       ^  - of building  the Balfour" extension  - of the- Crow's  Nest  Pass "railway.  In doing  so  it is  not actuated by  '  any love  for the local .contractors,  ��� for no-longer  than  last summer it  lent its columns to bolster up the  alien contractors who built tho Nelson & Bed Iington railway.  <<Now it  is roundly denouncing the same con-  *   traclois.  Tho Canadian Pacific railway management is not'infiuoncc'd,  ' in  tho  least,   by mere  sentiment,  '   ,and in letting  the contract for the  building, pi'   the twenty  miles  of  railway between Nelson and Balfour  Imt two things will  be considered,  that is, price and reponsibility.

'  "  Wants an Old Law Tested.  Wahuixiji'o.v, January 17.���A record and brief have been  received  by tho clerk of the supremo court of  tho L'nitod States in a ease from the  supremo  court   of   .Michigan   that  may have a bearing on the linancial  question.    It is the case of Baker  vs. Baldwin, in which F. A. Baker,  a Michigan lawyer, soc-ks to test the  constitutionality of tlio Bland-Allison act, making tiie silver dollar of  371.2-5  grains of pure silver a full  and unlimited legal  tender in tho  payment  ot  all  iiobt*_,   public ai d  private.     Mr.  J_..kor    claims   tin t  "the  act of LS7.'J, establishing  tl e  gold dollar of 2.'_,_.__ grains* of pine  gold as tho standard of value is tl e  only valid act in existence making  coined  money ti  full  legal   tender  and that all contracts since entered  into   payable   in   money   without  stipulation as to tho kind of mrney,  can be settled only in gold dollars  oi in United States notes redeem  able in gold. Ho contends that the  Bland-Allison act is unconstitutional because tho bullion value of the  silver dollar at the dale of the pass-  ago of that act and over since then  has boon less than tho value of the  gold dollar and that congress has  "no right under tlio power to coin  money to issue a debased coin and  to make it an unlimited tender,  where no provision is made for its  redemption in coin of full value."  Mr. Baker is an advocate of silver  and in 180(5 was chairman of the  Democratic state central committee  of Michigan, but he believes that  tho new standard of A*alue which  would result from the restoration  of bimetalism should be adopted for  future contracts only and that all  existing public and private debts  contracted since 1S73 should be  paid iu gold, unless the contract  specifically provides for the payment of some other kind of money.  Steamer Refused a Landing.  Sax Fiiaxcisco, January 15.���The  steamer Ke An Hon arrived this  morning from Honolulu without  having been able to approach any  wharf. There, were deputy sheriffs  with shotguns at every landing  place, and they shouted the order  to keep away. The result  was that the steamer returned  to Honolulu absolutely empty.  The reports from Honolulu say that  since the 1st iustant nine cases of  plague have developed, making 22  cases to date. The board of health  has adopted heroic measures, and it  is believed the *.\ ork now in progress  will stamp out the scourge in a  short time. Thus far but one European has been attacked. On the  .'Jrd instant the board of health declared tho entire judicial district of  Honolulu under quarantine. The  council of state has appropriated  $273,000 with which to light tho  plague and place the city in a proper sanitary condition.  Canadian Steamer Keleased.  - Washington, January  17.-���The'  United States supreme court today  decided another of the naval  prize  money cases   growing   out  of the  capture of vessels.during the blockade of Havana" in   the    war with  Spain.  Tho case was appealed from  the decision of the circuit court of  South Carolina, the A-ossel involved  being the Newfoundland.    Tho decision  of the lower court was reversed, tho supreme  court holding  that the actions of the  Newfoundland" were    .suspicious   enough to  justify seizure, but nob to warrant  forfeiture.    Tiie restoration of the  vessel to its  owner   was   therefore  ordered, but without  damages  or  costs.    The Newfoundland is owned  at Halifax.  HOTEL ARRIVALS,  At tiik Piiaii-.���Mrs. T. E.

Loving Cup for Dewey.  Washington,    January    17th.���  Tho loving cup of silver made from  the  molted  dimes    collected  from  over  70,000 American citizens, the  majority  of  whom  were children,  was  presented   to admiral  Dewey  today.   The cup stands nearly six  feet iu height'and is appropriate inscribed.    At one side  was a large  silver-bound volume containing the  names  of the  contributors of the  dimes who had subscribed to to the  token through the instrumentality  of tho New York Journal.    Senator  Depew acted as spokesman.    In accepting the tribute, admiral Dewey  thanked    senator   Depew  for    his'  gracious  words,  and said that he  was overpowered by this new proof  of the gratitude of his countrymen.  To him  tho  most  pleasant   thing  about it, and one that would make  him cherish it all tho more was the  fact that tho children of the coun-  tro were so largely represented in  the  giving.    The gratitude  of tho  little one*, he said, pleased him im-  . men sol y��� and ho spoke feelingly of  tho way they surround-him on the  streets and lisp out their pretty .little compliments.    At the conclusion  of admiral    Dewey's  remarks tho  health of those who gave and him'  who received were drunk.  ���^���ar.^.^-ar.<-_r-^-g,-<___r./g> ^���^���.--���^���^���^���^���^���^���^^.^���^���^���-y'i-,-^.g|'g'-g>----g-g|'^'i-,'''>.^>.<>'.��  r    ~___P*   ~M__v -fl___V ^___*-�� ^-b-' ^____B* <______-_��� ^___K~i^~D^4l___r ^___D-'4_____^ -^___p-* ^____V <_____V ^____V <______V 4_____c ^_____k 4______r ^^___-�� 4^___^ <^_______p 4^fer -~___h^ 4______r> 4____>r -~~>r <fte" <____->��' �����������* ^____r���� 4_->- ���t^te-" 4______>r 4B___* ^_E_>_>* 4~___r  ^k_. *  ��� "_C^ *^. *BT *__T. *^ ��� ����� ��� ^^ *^ ��^ S^ *^-"��� "ST-"ST��� "ET-"?��� *~^  00  o  W  CD  CO  o  CO  o  Ul  CD  13-  K-la  CD  Ul  hi  CD  0  e-  Ul  Shades  In all  Colors and  Sizes from  50c each  Up  Uf  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  ift  to  to  ift  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  ift  to  to  to  ift  to  to ___���____________  to  ^   LACE CURTAINS, per pair, from $1.00  to   CHENILE TAPESTRY PORTIERS, per  to pair, from $2.75 tip.  to   OAK  JE mings, 35c.  to   WINDOW SHADES, in good colors, per  to yard, 50c.  &   CHENILE TABLE COVERS, per  yard,  Jjy     "-;. from 75c up.  \fc   FLOOR OILCLOTHS,   4-4 8-4, per yard  to from 35c up.

Could the city  perfect a plan to do street work ?  For instance, if a man were out of  work and empty in pur.se he could  be put breaking *-tone and lilling in  the streets, and tin- city could furnish meals and .-.looping quarters  and pay him a small sum of money,  so tlui-i lie may be able to change  hi.*, place. J_y this means the city  would profit largely, besides helping  men who aro honest iu getting a  living.  Lob these men come and go at  their will. (Jive them piece-work,  so much to constitute a day's labor,  or put a good mm in charge and  > sec that they do not get something  for nothing. This will, I think,  keep many a man from sleeping all  night in a chair, and then asking  someone in the morning to give him  __;"> or :")0 cents to get his breakfast.  A man who has not got a marble  heart does not wish .to turn away  from one in need, if he can in any  way help him; neither does he  wish to give 25 or ."50 cents away  fifteen or twenty times a week. If  the city could carry out some such  plan as above lhentioned, when  one was accosted by a man in  hard luck he could send  him to the place where he  would be cared for, a'nd in return  he could invest some of his energy  in making Nelson oik* of the nicest  little cities that J.iitish Columbia  or Canada could boast of.  Such a plan I believe has been  tried in (Jermany and New 'Zealand  and found to work to the advantage of the corpoiation, and the less  fortunate of the woiking class arc  saved from a certain amount of suffering.' J would like to hear a few  suggestions as to such a plan from  the taxpayers of Nelson. Will  someone express themselves in  the columns of the Tribune? Yours  truly, "     N   WalT-.k Smith.    ,  NeLon, January 17bh.  high that the trade papers refrain  from publishing the usual column  of market prices. Large quantities  of gold, em-outo to seaporls in this  colony for shipment to England,  have been taken by the Boers.  "Representatives here of export  comiiiU.--.inn   hou**es  of the    Fnited  State.*, are con.*.tantly  booking and  cabling large orders, particularly of  food stuff.-, but   word   comes  from  the   large concerns   in   the United  State.      and       they      have     all  they   can    do    to    take    care    of  the home demand   and   are  many  weeks   or    mouths  behind   orders.  '���I ,'mdge alr-o that manufacturers  intend   to  withhold  shipments   to  thi.-   country,   the  fear  being   ex-  pie-sed    that   war   will   intcirupt  business for a  time.

"I believe that when the paralysis of trade is at an end, and the  vast sums of money locked up in  bank coffers in South Africa, as  well as those in America, which are  ready to be launched as soon as  reasonable _.ccuritic*. are visible,  will lubricate the wheels of a rebound of trade, which will quickly  change the complexion of things.  South Africa has before now successfully tided over worse times  than these, and there is no reason  to suppose that she will nob do so  again."  scraped until several layers are frozen, the desired thickness is secured, and the final surface of the  necessary smoothness. The number of contestants should be limited  to four players on a side, including  a "skip." The "skip" is the captain of the team and the absolute  ruler of the rink. He is also supposed to be the best player, and  directs the work of his side when  the stones are in a position to demand scientific work.  The object of the game is to slide  the curling-stone as neat- as possible to the "tee" at the opposite  end of tho rink from where the  player delivers it.  The curling stone, which   originally  had  finger-holes   on   top  like  ton-pin balls, and a finished bottom,  is  generally of   granite    imported  from Scotland.    It  is  spherical  in  form.     The  modern  stone is provided with a handle for  throwing,  on  the  upper  side,  and  is   finely  polished on the lower side, so as to  run smoothly and not cut the  ice.  The weight is from 3.'_ to 50 pounds.  The rink is laid out on  specially  prepared ice, about  i.0  yards long  and seven yards wide.     "Tees" are  laid out at the opposite ends of the  rink, 3S yards from centre to centre.  Around the "tee" circles 14 feet in  diameter  are  outlined  on the ice,  and two smaller  rings  are drawn  inside in order to make  the  measurement distance from  the  centre  easier.

She was  the largest commercial centre  in South Africa. Tho bone and  sinew of her strength were the  mining population, three month's  ago, IX ow everything is dead.  "The L'itlanders have iled: Their  exodus, from the Transvaal and the  Orange Free State has, 1 believe,  l_ecn unprecedented in history. The.  mines aro .without* men to turn a'  wheel, or build a ,fire, or raise a  pick. The backbone of the republics  has been broken, and the- parts  .scattered over the Avorld.  "Wore the weather severe it  wouid be a repetition of the Yukon  and Skaguay .retreat- i'rom the  Klondike. Numbers of those miners  have escaped by steamer. Still  more,-too poor to get out of the  country, are subjects of charity in  the cities of Cape Colony and Natal  and have to be fed. Others have  funds for a few days or weeks, but  will in time have to be supported  by the public. This is a country  Avhich does not produce enough food  stuffs foi' its own people. Add to  the natives the number of miners,  and feeding becomes a serious question. Add to these the arniy, which  is increasing daily, and the situation  of supplying food becomes acute.  "Up to this time goods have  readied the Transvaal via Delagoa  Bay, but ib is not supposed that  they will long be permitted to  enter. The two republics must  then live on their own resources.  Their crops are ready for the sickle,  but as the men aro all off to war  they cannot be cut.   Prices are so  S..tuid.i>* I'.oning Post.  Curling, the national game of  Scotland, promi.-es to become equally as popular a winter amusement  in the United States as its sister  sport, golf, the royal and ancient  'pastime, is in summer.  The origin of the game is shrouded in the"same cloud of uncertainty  that encompasses the birth of golf.  Many persons claim that the game  originated iu the Low Countries;  but though dating from a distant  era, there is* no tangible evidence in  Flanders today that the game ever  existed there. Coif is also said to  have first been played in Holland ;  but it certainly remamaincd for the  Caledonians to develop both games,  and it is nob improbable that both  alike had their origin in Scofcland.  Tradition is responsible for the  statement that James 1Y, who was  killed ab Flodden Field in 1 Ml, was  an enthusiastic curler, and presented a silver curling���stone to the parishes in the Carsc o' Gowie for annual competition. It is known that  curling was played at that time in  Scotland, for about fifty years ago  a curling-stone bearing the date  ];*..���>I was found iu a pond near Dunblane, and since then stones of  .divers Jat_er_ dates _ have_"becn re-*_  covered.  * A game similar to - curling is  known today in Holland as calluiten.  and in Germany as eiskugeln. The  name curling is applied to the game  on, account of the "English," ' or  twist, given to the stone in delivery.  In the early part of the present  century curling was first played in  America ut Montreal, but.it was  not until 1807 that the organization known as the Grand National  ��� Curling. Club* of America was  formed. David Foulis," of 200-WesL  One Hundred and Fifteenth street,  Now York, is the secretary.  In 1805, on Lake Erie, near Buffalo, the first international bonspiel  iu America was played. Bonspiols  arc matches between curling clubs,  but tho term is more particularly  applied to the annual championship  nieeting of the different curling  associations. Twenty-three rinks  representing the United States  opposed the Canadians, who won  the contest. Nearly all the matches  with Canada since that year lutA'e  been played at Toronto.  Chicago ii- the most important  center of the game in the west, although Milwaukee is famous in  curling annals for the high-class  players sent to the annual bonspiel*.  of the Northwestern Curling Association.  Curling is a very inexpensive  game, and may be played on any  sheet of smooth ice having the required dimensions. The rink is  prepared by first allowing the do  sired sheet of water to freeze. The  surface of the ice is. then carefully  scraped and additional water run  over it.. This in turii freezes" and is  end" of the rink  resembles a target placed horizontally, the tec representing the  bull's-eye and the rings the distances from it. Twelve feet behind  each "tee" is the line at wliich the  player stands. A "hack'* is cut in  the ice here in which the player inserts his foot to keep from slipping  when driving the stone. This  makes the whole playing distance  10 yards.  The "hog" score is seven yards in  front of each "tee," and is indicated  by a line. If any stone fails to  slide over this line ib is called a  "hog" and is removed.  The stone is slightly elevated at  the start of the delivery and slides  toward the opposite "tee." The  next player endeavors to get as  near the "tee" as possible with his  shot and at the same time knock  away his opponent's stone. As the  game is decided in favor of the side  having the greater number of stones  nearest the "tee" at the finish, the  excitement is naturally at its height  when there arc several stones  played. Each player tries to guard  liis own side from being knocked  out, besides using his endeavors to  drive his opponent's stone away  from the "tee.-" This leads to a  scientific feature of the game known  as "guarding."  The term "imviok" is used when  a stone strikes the inside of another  and glides towards the "tee," and  the opposite movement is called the  "outwick." When a stone is on or  near the "tee" the object of the side  to whom the stone belongs is to  place their stones so as to guard it  from attacks by their opponents.  After the various stones have  been played, their distances from  the "tee'' are measured and the  scores determined, and then play  begins toward the opposite "tee" in  the same order. The game usually  goes to the side scoring the. most  shots in 1(5 or 21 "ends.'.  The fine points of the -game are :  drawing to'the *^tee," then ^guarding,'' -subsequently removing the  guard : hitting the winning stone  direct, so as to knock it out; "iu-  wicking" and "oubwicking." Drawing requires the most scientific calculation, as, where it is often  impracticable to remove the winning stoneby a direct shot, owing'  to full guarding, it is often possible  to gain the-desired advantage by  drawing.'"     - "  The broom is a very important  adjunct to the'game, and is used to  sweep the" surface of the ice, which  is supposed to be perfectly smooth.  To-a spectator tli is action seenis ludicrous, but the curlers maintain  that it polishes the ice and "coaxes"  the stone .along, When the stone  reaches a point where there seems  to be an absence of power, the players apply their brooms as energetically as if their existence depended  on their exertions in reply to the  injunction of tho "skip" to "soop  her oop,"  Jn the past few years curling has  become the winter sport of many  golfing organizations. At Wheat-  on, near Chicago, where the amateur golf championship was held in  18J.7, several rinks have been in use  for the past few years, and such  well-known golfers as former amateur champion Charles \i. Macdonald aud D. II. Eorgan, the western  champion, and a host of other less  prominent players, are among the  most enthusiastic curlers. The rinks  aro inclosed, electrically righted,  and elaborated fitted up. The Washington Park golfers also Jit up a series of rinks annually, under the  race track stand, and in many other  western golf clubs rinks are regard- j  el as a necessary winter adjunct.  Like golf, curling has a language  of its own, although simi'iar terms  are used in both games, bub applied  differently. For instance, the "tee"  is the starting point in golf, while  in curling it denotes the goal or  finishing point. Tiie expressions  "up" and "down" are similarly applied in both games to express the  margin of victory or defeat. A  curling contest of the regulation  number of " ends " or innings takes  the same time to play as an eigh-  teen-hole golf match���generally  three hour.-?. To appreciate curling it must be played, for, like golf,  it is devoid of spectacular features.  As in golf, the game may be played by persons of all ages. Ib is  really surprising to see elderly players shout and work their brooms  until perspiration rolls from their  faces in a temperature usually below zero.  A   HIGHER   MORALITY.  Tho l-'orinn.  As there is a higher criticism,  which to some is a stumbling-block,  but to the intelligent is a rock giving a wider and truer view, so there  is a higher morality.  The course of ordinary ethical  teaching is indeed nob always clear.  To illustrate: There is a natural  untruthfulness which no one regards as sinful. Every weak animal that escapes death by deceiving  the pursuer acts the lie God has  taught it. So little children in  their Aveakness are natural liars.  We do not stigmatize the baby as a  .sinner. Wc teach him that his is  an offense, and that he will sin if,  knowing the offense, he lies again.  For the adult the question in its  simplest form appears in the old  query: Is it right to tell a lie to  save a human life? The problem  becomes more Complicated when  self-interest enters as a factor, as iu  the story of the traveler who to  save himself from pillage betrayed  his companion. But after the robbers were gone he reimbursed the  sufferer twice over; remarking that  while the latter had only ten pounds  to lose he himself would have lost  ten times that sum had he been  searched.  Wc call this, not quite rightly,  Jesuitical. But to take up now the  real position of the Jesuit, his error  lies in the assumption that the good  -of his sect represents the highest  good.- In so far as he errs in this  his moral code lacks a broad support. If instead'of one church party we put the l___m_an._ra_ce,*a-,c we  not justified in saying that 'what  without a doubt; conduces to the advantage of the race cannot be essentially.sinful?  Of course, there must be no doubt:  and since human fallibility is augmented by selfish considerations, no  one man can be an unbiased arbiter  of his own rectitude. Nor may any  one people plume itself on doing  evil that good may conic of it; for  it may err in interpreting the work  it accomplishes. Bub if by general  consent the result is good, as far as  it is humanly' possible to decide,  what then?  Certainly, as science has taught  us, the great principle which has  been carried out in the advancement of humanity has always been  that of the greatest good of the  greatest  number.-    Whatever   has  opposed this has had to yield. This  is not an entirely new doctrine. It  is in truth a curious historical accident that the same principle *\.as  enunciated in India more than tv o  thousand years ago. And this, I  believe, is not generally known.  Canadian News Briefs.  The Barrie Tanning Company  have asked the town to guarantee  on reasonable security their debentures for $30,000, to be used in  erecting a new tannery equipped  with all the latest machinery. The  present premises would in that  event bo discarded for the new  building, which will give employment for 75 to 100 men.  A new industry which will  greatly benefit Walkerville, Ontario, is fast reaching its completion. Large and adequate buildings are in course of construction,  and the finest machinery is already  on the way from Sweden for the  manufacture of matches.  At a meeting of the stonemason's  union, Toronto, tho masons decided  to apply for an advance iu their  present scale of wages, which, under a two years' agreement, now  expired, had been fixed at 30 cents  an hour. The union will apply for  a rate of from 30 to 10 cents per  hour, and expect that the increase  will be readily granted.  Australia's Second Contingent.  Sydney, January 17.���The departure of the second Australian  contingent for South Africa took  place among unprecedented scenes  today.

At  the United States consulate there  was a streamer bearing the Avords :  "America wishes the Australian  patriots God-speed."  Votes to Norweigian Officers.

Ward Bros.  REAL, ESTATE AND  GENERAL INSURANCE  AGENTS  A   CHANGE   OP   FRONT.  New York -.veiling Post.  Englishmen have, on the whole,  taken their unexpected disasters in  the South African  war in  manly  fashion.     One   can   imagine   what  would have happened in Franco in  similar circumstances; the government  could  scarce  have lived the  week out.    England has, to be sure,  what she calls her ���'yellow press."  Compared .with our own jaundiced  article,  hers is of only the  palest  saffron hue ; but, such as it is, it has  done the usual shrieking and clamoring for the head of this or that  minister.   The country in genera',  however, has taken very much the  tone of the leader of the opposition  in the house, whose last speech was,  in effect,  "Let us all strain every  nerve  to see  the end of this war  first, and then won't we go for the  government!    The lines of the attack which will be made upon the  Avar office are already indicated.    It  Avill be accused of ignorance and incompetence, both in  whole anil  in  detail.    A peculiarly deadly parallel  has been made of the first reply and  its  last  to  the   colonial  offers  of  troops:  October ,-ird��� |December Kith-  "In  .lew ot number-..   "Mount cd    men    pre-  already   ._v.iil.ible,   in- forrcd.   Men should  be  fun!ry   ino_?l.   ravnlr.. 'trained and good -hots;  least, sor.iccublo."        !-*iipplyinjj     their    own  morses."  There could not Avell be a cleaner  confession of having entirely misunderstood the military problem at  first. It is also said that the British officers had only inadequate  maps of Natal or Cape Colony.  They were supplied Avith beautiful  maps of the Transvaal and Orange  Free State, but have had no use for  them as yet. This recalls the experience of the French Avar office in  1S70, AA'hich furnished the army admirable maps of Germany, but only  Avretched ones of the French territory, Avhere the Avar was actually  fought. There are also afloat gross  charges of favoritism in the selection of officers by the British war  oflicc; but all these things are, for  the most part, held in reserve uutil  the final political reckoning is made  after the fighting is over.

KASLO  SANHON  HOSPITAL FINANCES.  The last monthly statement of  the Kootenay Lake General Hospital Society, which was submitted  to the directors this week, shows  tho finances of the society to be in  a very satisfactory condition, and  once the addition to the institution  is completed and ready for occupancy it bids fair to become very  nearly self-supporting. As matters  stand there is at present a credit  balance of over $S00 on the general  account. It is the building fund  account, however, which is causing  the directors uneasiness. There  was raised upon this account by  subscriptions $2,202.10, which was  supplemented by $1000 taken from  the society's general fund. Of this  sum, however, $3084.2Vt has been  expended, leaving a credit balance  of but $17S.1I to complete the payments upon building and heating  contracts, which are estimated at  $2750.  As to the furnishing of the addition to the hospital, the St. Andrew's Society .has set an example  which might well be followed by  the other fraternal and benefit societies of the city. This society has  handed the directors of the hospital  a cheek for $50, to be expended in  the furnishing of a' ward, to be  known as St. .Andrew's ward. The  other societies could not employ  their funds to greater advantage  than in following this lead. So  small a, sum would not be missed by  any of them, and would result in  relieving the hospital directors entirely in the matter of furnishing  and enable them to devote their entire energies to the building account. The statement of the hospital society's general fund up to  the 15th instant is as follows ;  l-oeuuibcr llth--     i:i.ri H-K-j.
