 DAiLY   EDITION   BY  MAIL  FIVE   DOLLARS  A YEAR  WEEKLY EDITION   BY MAIL  TWO   DOLLARS A  YEAR  EIGHTH  YEAR  NELSON:  MONDAY MORNING, JANUARY 15,  1900.  PBTCE FIVE  CENTS.  T-  -r  K  SOCIETIES JAKE A   HAND  In the Raising of Funds.  Ni.av   York,    January   IJ.-���The  British   societies    throughout   the  United States have determined to  demonstrate  their, loyalty   to  the  mother country as far as possible  by raising as large a fund as they  can to supplement that being raised  at the Mansion House for the widows  and orphans of soldiers lost iu tlio  Transvaal   war.    The  St.  George's  ���society, the oldest organization of  persons of English birth and descent  in this country, has issued through  its president, George Gray Ward, a  circular letter to the -various lodges  and societies embraced in its affiiii-  ations, including tho St.  Andrew's  and St. David's  societies and  the  Sons of St. George, a fraternal and  benevolent association,whose lodges  are scattered throughout the United  States.    In response to this letter a  sum  of  $51,000  has  already  been  raised iu Chicago and forwarded to  the Mansion House. The St. George's  lodges of New Jersey have collected  thus   far about $10,000,  and   this  amount will be equalled, if not exceeded, by that of Now York.  The St. David's society has informed the St. George's society of  its willingness*- to co-operate, and  Mr. Fvans, its secretary, has stilted  that patriotism among tho Welsh  is just about ab white heat. The  St. Andrew's society has taken no  ,'on for fear that a call issued to  j.Jhombers, some of whom are  v 'h; might be construed as manda-  Jy. Scotchmen "will do all thcy  ean individually, but indicate a desire to have a distinctive fund  started for subscriptions. Ibis estimated that the responses, which  will be received through the various channel*., particularly through  the lodges of the Sons of St.  George, will amount to a total of at  least  $250,000.    Mr.   Hayward,  se  cretary of 'Nelson lodge, said yesterday that he expected to see a  great deal of rivalry among the  lodges to reach  the .highest 'figure.  Frenchman Defends Britain.  Pa ii is, .January I I.���M. Yves  Guyot.a former cabinet minister,  and now editor of the Siecle, who  is the only prominent writer in  France, ancl perhaps on the continent of F.urope, "who honestly takes  the British side in the South African tioublc**, still has tho courage of  hi**- convictions, and in a forcible  editorial in today's Steele describes  the BiTers.as the Chinee of Africa,  and asks'" if the world can allow  lil'ty thousand or a hundred thousand Outlauders to be treated as  pariahs by 30,000 Boers. M. Guyot  contrasts Boer pig-headed cxelu-  sivenebs with "tho true civilization  of the United States, where the  Puritans of New England and the  Quakers of 1'eunsylvauia. opened  -.vide their doors to Irish, German  and other foreigners, and accorded  -them - tho���franchise.-- - M--l.uyot-  pks whether president Kruger -will  consent honestly to give the franchise to the Outlauders. "If not,  England's only course is to fight tho  war to the bitter end, and in the  interest of humanity to establish,  peace, liberty and equality in South  Africa." *   Anti-Boer Me sting in Chicago.  CiiitJAtJt), -January 1*!.���Since the  .beginning of the present war between the British and Boers there  have been.numerous meetings and  demonstrations of Boer sympathizers in Chicago as well as in  other American cities. The iirst  pro-British demonstration to be  held iu Chicago,-and the first-of  any note to bo held in, the entire  country, took place .last night in  Central Mn*_tc J hill. The affair was  under the auspices-of the Sons and  Daughters of the British Empire,  and in aid of "the fun"d for the benefit of the soldiers aud sailors who  may fall, or who have fallen in the  South Af i lean war." General John  A. Walker presided and the list of  speakers included several men and  women of wide prominence.  Greenwood Happenings.  Guei-NAVOod, January II.���A  number of musically inclined young  gentlemen of the city have formed  a club to be known as the Mendelssohn Male Chorus Club. The members are arranging for a, concert at  an early date. The officers elected  were 11. J. Strong, president. D. A.  Cameron and F. II. McKcitztc, vice-  presidents; and B. F. Petch. secretary.  Tonight, at the Alhambra theater,  a crowded house witnessed one of  the cleanest and swiftest boxing  matches ever seen in the Boundary  district. Ib was a six-round go, in  which Charles Dockman, a vaudeville artist, agreed to put out Dannie Dean in six rounds or forfeit  $100. Both men are lightweights  and well up in the manly art. Dock-  man, however, was unable to carry  out his share of the programme,  and the purse and honors went to  I., can. At the close of the performance Dean was challenged to a 15-  round go by "Kid." Thomas. The  challenge was promptly accepted,  and before many days another  .match will be"pulled off.  Seven I y-five' cars of freight are  arriving here weekly; and the congestion at the West Robson^end has  been relieved temporarily. The balance of the branch between here  and Midway will bo completed by  the middle of next week. The local  depot is nearly finished, aud will be  ready to be occupied within a few  days.   THE FREE STATE INVADED  By the Canadian Troops.  London'. January 14. ��� Lloyds  Weekly newspaper prints tho following dispatch, dated Belmont,  Cape Colony, January 10th: "Colonel Pilcher with 400 Canadians,  200 Australians and a battery of  Royal Horse Artillery, made a re-  connaisauce yesterday, and advanced ten miles into the Free  State. They sighted a patrol of  the enemy at Karriellgate. The  Boers fled, abandoning their rifles  and ammunition."  Moi.Di.i". Bivei., January 10.���  Heavy cannonading was heard in  the direction of Kimberley between  five and seven o'clock this morning.  Two British prisoners who arrived  yesterday report that they endured  severe hardships after escaping  from the 13 loemfoutein jail. _ Their  clothes were in rags when they arrived here. . '  *  London, January 15..���The war  of/ice issued at midnight ii dispatch  from field-marshal! Roberts, dated  Capo Town, Sunday, January 14th,  ��>aynig : '���Thcie is no change in the  situation." The war office simultaneously issued the following from  lord Roberts, dated Cape Town,  January 13th: "Metlmcn's cavalry  leeonnaissancc returned on January  11th. It went 25 miles into the  Free State. Tho country is"clear of  the enemy except patrols. All is  quiet at at Moddor liiver. French  reconnoitercd around the enemy's  left flank on January 10th. He advanced from Slitnaugers farm on  January 11th with cavalry and  horse artillery, to bombard a Boer  laager oast of Colesburg Junction,  bub was unable to outflank the  enemy. The reconnaissance of cavalry and mounted iu fan try pushed  north of Bustard's Nek and examined the country north of the  lidge.     Gatacre reports no change.  All well _on   December _20bh    at  .Mafeking."  'London, January 15.-���Tho Associated Presa learns that lord Luiis-  downc, secretary of state for war,  accepted on Saturday tho offer of  lord* Strati-cona, Canadian high  commissioner in. London, to provide, .distinct from the Canadian  contingent, a force of at least 000  mounted men from Manitoba, the  Northwest Territories and British  .Columbia, and to arm, equip and  convey them to South Africa at his  own expense. All will be expert  marksmen, rough lidcrs and scout*-*.  16 i*- estimated that the offer.will  involve an expenditure of "-��200.000.  The war office regards Strathcona's  oiler as an extraordinary proof of  colonial patriotism.  Caim: Towx, January 10.���The  proceedings for treason against'the  Dutch colonials, who were taken in  arms at Sunnyside, are being pressed. Witnesses ha/vc been interrogated today. The preliminary  examination before the magistrate  will be held later, and the trial will  be conducted by the supreme court.  DrKiiAX, Natal, January 10.���  There is a. Boer command in the  Seabans country, Zululand, within  a day's! march of the sea with  wagons, lb is believed to be wilting for supplies and ammunition  secretly landed near St. Lucia bay.  The Boors have looted all the stores  and miners in Swasiland, and the  ruined natives are completing the  woik of destruction.  London, January 1 i.���The latent  army older provide?* for the formation of a volunteer engineer  corps of 500 men for service in  South Africa.  ITALY ALONE IS FRIENDLY  Portugal Checked Up.  Niow Yoi.ic, January 11.���The  London correspondent of the Sun  says: "The Portuguese minister  called by appointment at the foreign ollice last Saturday, aud since  then Portugal has declared her intention of being more careful in the  observation of the Dutch as a neutral power at Delagoa bay. Almost the entire personnel of the  administration at Lorenzo Marquez  will probably bechauged shortly.  There is considerable irritation  here over Holland's attitude, which  may result in the foreign office  making another appointment. . The  young queen is intensely pro-Boer,  and has written to the Pope, the  kaiser and the king of Italy, boggiug  them to take the diplomatic initiative to stop the cruel fratricidal  Avar. She has also shown marks of  favor to Dr. Leyds, the Transvaal  representative, who with his agents  has bought and shipped munitions  of Avar, and enlisted officers without hindrance since the war commenced.  Jn Europe, England's only real  friend is Italy, aud she is proving  a friend in need. From the first  the Italian government has put  every facility at the disposal of the  British officers engaged in buying  mules and other things, while  strictly enforcing the neutrality  principle against the Boer agents.  Moreover, according to a correspondent, it was made known  that when the Creusotc Company  had refused to sell guns to England  on any tenns, word was wired to  London from Rome that the famous  Italian gun makers, tho Acieries  company, fortunately had ready  for shipment a battery of big quick-  firers, in every respect the equal to  any weapon. A bargain was struck  for them and there is good reason  to believe that the Italian guns are.  being shipped from Genoa., today.  Dr. Leyds, the special Transvaal  envoys to Europe, then suspected  the Italian good faith, and sent a  writ of protest to Rome. No notice  was taken of it beyond'a formal  acknowledgement of its arrival.  and Iloneynest Kloof, under major Byrne, advanced toward Ja-  cobsdale. General       Babington  penetrated twelve miles and his  scouts twenty. /They saw no  signs of command of Boors. The  farm houses wore empty, the occupants having had -news of the advance and gone further into the interior. The British bivouacked at  Ramlen. They burned three farm  houses, the property of Lubbe, one  of the Boer leaders.: Yesterday  they swept around southward, returning here today. Nothing was  accomplished except a reconnaissance.- Colonel Pilcher came into  touch with general; Babington, and  they returned to Belmont. Major  Byrne reconnoitred 'the hills about  four miles from Jafobsdale and saw  seven hundred Boers.  GETTING NEAR LADYSMITH  CRITICS WAIT-FOR  NEWS  BRITAIN'S  AFRICAN  FORCE  Numbers 100,000 Men.  Lokdox, January 11.���The Daily  Chronicle publishes today a detailed statement showing that 104,-  !375 men, with 280 guns, are now defiled to South Africa, and that with  the troops now at sea or preparing  to sail, there will be an aggregate  strength of 1(50,000 men, 32,000  horses and 440 guns in the course  of a few-weeks. This will be done  without stripping India, England  or Ireland of their battalions.  Capk Towx, January 12.���It is  -reportecLthat-Mr.J-loffman, a_mem-.  ber of the Cape assembly, who  joined the Boers as a surgeon, is a  prisoner at * DeAar and probably  a\ ill be court-martialed.  London, January 14.���The Associated Press learns that lord Salisbury believes tho salvation of'Great  Britain's military system depends  -on general Kitchener, in whom he  has long had implicit; faith. - It has  already been planned that if lords  Roberts and Kitchener bring the  campaign to a successful termination, the latter will- be brought  home to honors almost equal  to those of the duke of Wellington. He Avill be put into the  war office -> and Avill be given a  free hand to brush away the cobwebs AA'hich clog the British army.  Lord Roberts, of course, will not be  neglected, but then he would be old  for such AA'ork as is outlined for lord  Kitchener. Perhaps before this can  be accomplished lord Salisbury Avill  bo out of power and lord Kitchener  Avill be discredited, but upon such  rehabilitation by means of a young  and brilliant agent has the heart of  the British premier beeu set. It  remains to be seen whether fate  Avill enable him to carry it out.  MoniH... I.ivi_u, January 11.���  General Babington, Avith tAvo regiments of Lancaster?, tho Victorian  mounted rifles and a battery of  horse artillery. left here on the evening of January 7th aud crossed  tho Free State border Tuesday  morning. Simultaneously other  movements AA'ere made. A column  under colonel Pilcher Aveut from  Belmont to the south of general  Babingfon's route, while a portion  of  the  garrisons   of   K-lokefontein  Of Buller's Movements.  New York, January 14.���The  London correspondent of the Tribune cables at length today regarding the political side of the Avar  situation, and the criticism wliich  the government and the Avar office  is subjected to. He says: "There  is a momentary lull in the storm of  criticism, while the nation is waiting Avith feverish anxety for the results of general Buller's turning  movement on the Tugela, bub when  the suspense is over it will break  with undiminished force upon the  heads of her majesty's ministers.  Mr. Balfour, the most amiable and  popular member of the cabinet, has  been lampooned, abused and carica-  turedfor a Aveek,because he accepted  the mishaps and disappointments  of war Avitli dreamy fatalism. The  Unionist press has condemned tho  gentlest and most loA-able leader  the house of commons has known  as a feeble apologist, conspicuous  for liis.,inaplitiide in defending a  cabinet of old men and mediocrities.'- Ordinarily it is the opposition  press that subjects the government  ^of the day to destructive ciiticism,  but iu the hurly burly of an unsuccessful war it is the. candid ftiend  who aims the stiletto. If the government Avill not only turn on parliamentary eloquence, but alno relax the military censorship tho  ncAvspapors will make less trouble.  No great Avar has ever been so inadequately described by correspondents in'the'fieid from day to day.  Pretoria, a ia Lorenzo Marque/,  January 12.���Everything points to  a great,battle within the next few  days. Ladysmith for the last two  nights has been firing rockets, the  .object of which is not known hcio.  Lai.ysahtii, January 12.���.The besiegers have been quiet for two  days, but can be seen in active  movement ou the distant hills. We  have perceived two small bodies of  the enemy galloping Avith two machine guns. The Boer heavy piece  on Buh.Avan hill ha.*, not been fired  _for tAvo _diiy_s.__M<*i_e_lloer_dead_h_aye_  been found at the base of Caesar s  camp.    All is aa*cH here.  London, January 11.���Reports  from Colesburg*represent the position there asfavoiable to the Boers,  but that the Biitish arc concentrating for operations on a largo  scale. Tho official list of the Boer  casualties in the attack upon Ladysmith shows 2(5 Jdllod and 77  wounded. These figures are described as the "first, returns" at  Pretoria. The embargo ab Delagoa  Bay, upon Transvaal imports, is the  'question of the hour Avith tho burghers. If this be not removed, it is  asserted that steps will 'be taken  prejudicial to "the Briti-.li piisoher.  and their ration*,.  London, January 11.���To find instances of the appalling impracticability distinguishing the formation  of Great Britain's irregular corps,  it is only necessity to read the list  of the kit being taken out by the  City of London volunteers. The  officers of this body carry to the  plains of South Africa an air pillow, cork inattrnss, canvas basin,  bath bucket, a tin box of candle-., a  lantern, a filter and a host of other  impediments that an American officer would burn before stinting on a  ten-mile march, Avhilo the men are  laden doAvn AA'ith four pair of pants,  four pair of shoe-*, three caps, pajamas, two largo Turki'li tuAvel**. a  filter, a clothes bnt*-h, and a writing  portfolio and other articles-.  London-, January IS.���A dispatch  fo the Time*, from Lorenzo Marque/, f-ays: "A leading Transvaaler  say.*, the Boers a\ ill make another  desperate attempt to ieduce Ladysmith."  Guessing at Buller's Plans.  New York, January 14.���RevieAV-  ing the Avar situation, under Sunday  morning's date, the London correspondent of the Tribune says: The  Avar office was prolific in casualty  lists yesterday from Mafeking,  Stormberg, Colesburg and other  camps, but Avas silent hour after  hour respecting general Buller's  turning movement. The comments  upon that movement made twenty-'  four hours earlier still held good at  a late hour tonight. There AA*cre no  neAA* facts, and the theories, of experts AA'ere of no value because there  Avas an utter lack of information  upon Avhich to base them. It was  evident that general Buller's advance to Potgieter's drift, if not a  feint for disguising a real attack on  Colenso of seAren miles below on the  Weenen road, AA'as the first maneuver in a series directed against the  enemy's flank and rear, and that  time must be alio .ved for working  out the entire plan of operations.  The passage of the Tugela river  by a strong column, when a flat-  bottomed scoav or rough floating  bridge, A\*oikcd by a single rope,  AA'as the only means of transit,  Avould require time, ca'ch if the  enemy did not molest the invaders,  and possibly it could only be taken  under cover of darkness. Military  writers here have succeeded in locating the drift Avith a fair degree  of certainty, but tho district is off  the main road and little is known  about it. It is a grazing region,  occupied mainly by Dutch farmers.  Springfield, AA'hich is uoav occupied  by general Buller, is an insignificant  village, Avith a feAV houses and tAvo  Kaffir stores. The journey by post-  cart from Springfield to Ladysmith,  via. Potgieters drift, occupies seven  and one-half JiOHrs. . These are the  Only obtainable facts respecting the  quarter where general Buller is  knoAvn to be operating.  "The croakers wore inclined to suspect at midnight that the AA*ar office.  was holding back bad ubaa's.    Their  complaints * merely   indicate   their  oavii   nervousness.      The    officials  themselves asserted that they AA'ere  as completely in  the dark  as  the  correspondents clamoring for neAvy.  The opinion iu Avell informed military circles is hopeful, ' The danger  oi' a  counter  attack  is not  overlooked, especially whon  there  are  icports that eight Boer camps Avere  discovered  by   the  British  scouts  earlier in the  week  on   the  south  bank of the Tugela.    Tt is assumed  -with confidence, hoAvever, that general Waireu's division is proA'ided  Avith   a   mule  train,    and    carries  its    own   supplies   so    that    cutting     its  L communication      Avith  the rear \\ ilj notbe ascrious accident.  The most sanguine  experts  expect,  him to push on to Ladysmith after  crossing     the     Tugela,    breaking  through or turning  the  Boer  lino,  _a'nd_wh..n_ reinforced __by__general.  White to move south  tOAvard  Colenso. ��� Theories like these, however,  are trifles, light as air.     What the  Rnglishmen want "is positive information about Avhat  general  Buller  has*"done, not Avhat optimists  hope  he may do.   In the opinion of many,  hoAA'CA'er,   this   turning  movement  oilers a better chance for the speedy  deliverance  of   Ladysmith,  and  a  crushing defeat of the Dutch forces  than tt direct  frontal  attack upon  Colenso. ���    "  The occupation of the south bank  of the'Tugela at" Potgietors drift"  by "the British could not hiiA-e been  a surprise to the Boors. Tho drift  is at the apex of a long bend or :  loop, and back of it are low ranges |  Of kopjes, Avith broken country all  the way to Ladysmith. A turning  movement east of Colenso would  woidd have threatened the main  line of the Boer communication*.  nortliAvard, but would have left the  Free State troops' free to retire  westward to their own frontier. A  turning movement Avest of Colciw*  by Potgicter*- drift, if . uvcessful,  would cub oil" the direct line of retreat of the Free Slate burgher.** to  their mountain passes but Would  not block their way nortlnvard unless general White should attack in  the rear.  The iiOAVs from other sections of  t he field of operations U al-*o meagre.  Reports from Rents burg *-pcak of  the advance of a strong foice under general French'.*, command,  under cover of artillery fire, and its  encampment on tho c-a-lern Hank  of the enemy. This maiiu'iivre  probably threatens the Dutch line  of   retreat    toAVards    the   Orange  river. The enemy has been clearly  disturbed by it, for an unsuccessful  attempt has been made to take the  British position. This seems to be  the promise of a successful close of  general French's ingenious manoeuvres around Colesburg, in Avhich his  chief object has been not to capture  the town, but the cutting of the  enemy's communications. Avith the  bridges over the Orange river.  ANOTHER RAILWAY^ SMASH  On the Crow's Nest Pass.  A   C.   P.   R.   train    was ' badly  ���wrecked  on  the  CroAv's Nest road  about noon yesterday.    By ��a miracle  no  lives  AA'ere lost,  but  three  men ."were-more or less injured. The  loss to the company Avill be heaA*y,  as several  cars  were damaged beyond hope of repair.    The cause of  the wreck has not been determined,  but the only tenable  theory  seems  to be  that a rail spread, allowing  the baggage car to jump the track.  The accident happened at a point  one   mile   east   of   Creston.      The  train  comprised  a locomotive and  tender,  baggage  car, colonist  car.  first-class  coach  and Pullman car.  The train was running at an ordinary rate of speed and Avas rounding  a curve when the crash came.    The  locomotive kept  the  rails, and the  tender,  baggage  car, colonist and  fust-class coaches AA*ere hurled some  distance from the track.  The scene after the passengers  extricated themselves AA'as startling,  and on every side Avonder AA*as expressed that half a dozen or more  lives had not been lost. The baggage car A\*as at a right angle to the  track. The trucks, floor and one  side of the colonist had been torn  up, and the remainder of the car  crumpled up as though the material  had been tin. The first class car  was thrown OA*er tAA'o great stumps  fifteen feet from track -and was  buckled up and . generally" dismantled. Tho 'Pullman escaped  lightly, the front end being' telescoped and thrown from the track,  while the rear trucks kept to the  rails.  There were some fifteen passengers aboard the wrecked traiii.  among them being J. C. Drury of  Rossland; aud T. G.,Procter of Nelson. Mr. Drury tells' a graphic  story of the wreck in part as fol-  Ioaa's : "Mr. Procter and myself  were the only occupants of the .  Pullman, and Avere seated hi the  smoking compartment Avhen the  crash occurred. We were thrown  about the compartment roughly,  but escaped without a scratch. On  recovering our feet Ave rushed out  and at first glance concluded that  everyone in the cars ahead imi".  have been killed. in a moment,  however, passengers began to climb  out of Avhidrnvs, and Ave forced the  door of the first class coach to allow  tluwe Avithin to escape. No one in  this coach Avas injured. In the  coIonist-car-tAvo passengers received-  sx-alp AA'ound*"-, but only one of them  wa. at all seriously hurt.  "The baggageman Avas quite badly hurt, lie was . crushed about  the shoulders and hips. When the  accident happened he was placing a  quarter of beef -and a package of  money near die door to be put off  at Creston, and when avc pulled  htm from'the shattered car his only  thought was for the money. Nothing would satisfy him until the  brakeman crawled into the wreck  and secured the valuable parcel.  The brakeman dNco. eied the car  Co be on fire Avhich avu -AVorked for  .-amo time to extinguish. Meaji-  Avhilc the conductor had.*-i_nt a man  into Creston with AVord of the accident and within a short time an  engine and van arrived fiom Fiirdar  to take the pa^engess on to the  lauding, f am quite at a loss to  underotand Iioav half the passengers  aboard tho wrecked train escaped  without the lo*-*; of life or limbs."  ,Me.-!-rs Drury and Proctor arm*-  ed in Nelson at S o'clock last night,  being delayed only three and a half  hours.

The tug Kaslo Avas burned to the  AA'ater's edge on Sunday morning at  her moorings off the C. P. R. dock.  The origin of the fire is not'known.  Tho Kaslo had beeu working along  the water front on Saturday and at  night Avas tied up as usual, fires  being extinguished and lights pnt  out. About 3:30 o'clock Sunday  morning engineer Walker was  aroused from sleep by the crackling  of flames, and promptly shouted an  alarm. Captain Lean was sound  asleep, but aajis dressed in a trice  and assumed command. Deckhands  Donnelly, Boyle and Tibaulb, also  turned out in a hurry, and efforts .  wrere taken to check the advance of  the flames. The tug. however, was  so constructed as to cause a strong  draft from stern to stern, and the  captain and his crew AA'ere speedily  forced to abandon her.  The tug Ymir was tied up nearby, but her steam was down and  the crew could only assist by joining the bucket brigade. The Kaslo  Avas moored between two ore barges,  and one of these began to smoke in  a fashion which indicated that slie  would speedily be in flames unless  the burning craft \A*as removed. A  C. P. R. switch engine, operating in  the yard, A\*as run down to the dock  and a line fastened to the Kaslo,  and she was towed up to the dock.  The syphon of the locomotive Avas  set to AA-ork and a strong stream of  water thrown on the fire. The flames  were raging fiercely through the  tinder-like timbers, and water did  not appear to have the slightest effect.  Captain Lean determined to  scuttle the craft, and procured an  axe aud a-rowboat. Sculling alongside he chopped a hole amidships  through which the water poured in  a tori cut and the Kaslo quickly  sank in four feet of Avater.  'Much of the hull still remained  above Avater and a stream' was  thrown on the blazing uppei-AVorks  for some tithe longer. The city fire  department was called out, and  went as far as the C. P. R. freight  sheds. Their apparatus Avas useless  as there is no hydrant nearer than  the Sherbrooke hotel." Steam was  raised on the Ymir and one of the  threatened barges was tOAved to a  point of safety.  Scores of citizens visited ' the  scene of the fire on Sunday .morning.'  The wreck presented a dismal appearance and was still smoking at 2  o'clock in the afternoon. Nothiug  remained of the hull save a few  charred timbers. The boiler is intact aiitl etui be used again at small  co.st. The machinery is buried  under a pile of debris, and may bo ,  Avorth something when repaired.  Tho Kaslo A\*a,s built in 1891 for  i^uili & Buchanan, the engines being  ;i Doty_ compound, (J and 18-inch  cylinders with 10 normal horse-  poAAer. The original cost was  ijjJ0,000. . She AA*as purchased by the  Pilot Bay smelter and used for some  time for towing,ore barges between  the smelter and the Blue Bell mine.  When the smelter avjis transferred  to the Bank of Montreal, the Kaslo  was tied up for* several months.  The craft Avas chartered by the  <_'. P.

WEIR, Men's Outfitter.  �����he QKritame*  Tin*- new city  council  Avill  meet  for  the  first  time  today  at    tAvo  o'clock.     They Avill  find  that the  council  that   preceded    them  Avas  not only a  trifle  extravagant, but  that they spent  $5000  more  than  they had a right  to spend.     This  deficit must be met.    It is not likely the present council will be a popular one, for it must  manage the  city's business very economical to  make any kind  of a  showing, and  economy in the expenditure of public money is seldom appreciated and  never   popular.       It   Avill   require  fully $10,000 to make any kind of a  ��� ���showing iu the way  of street im-  provements   and   wharf   building,  and there is not to  exceed  $15,000  in sight Avith which to do  it.    The  issue of debentures for the purpose  would not be advisable, for the interest and sinking fund  charges on  debentures already issued  is more  than can be raised from real estate  taxes, provided the present rate is  not increased.  A protest has been filed in Toronto by the firm of Bristol & CaAV-  thra against the return of Hon.  John Dryden in South Ontario.  The usual charges of bribery and  corruption are alleged.  OttaAva printers want an increase  in Avages. The Ottawa Typographical Union has decided to ask that  wages, both in the government  printing bureau and in the other  local printing establishments be  raised from $12 to $15 per Aveek on  hand composition. c  Rev. Donald McNeill, one of the  oldest Baptist ministers iu Canada,  died in Toronto.  William Newsome, of Wyeville,  an octogenarian, is iu jail at Barrie  for trying to cut his  Avife's  throat.  Tm_ Miner's contention that the  city cannot afford to lose the  revenue heretofore derived fiom  the nickle-in-the-slot machines is  absurd. Were the city authorities  to pass the word that square  gambling would be permitted for  the year 1900, fh-e times the estimated revenue from the nickle-  in-thc-slot machines could leadily  be obtained from men who folloAV  gambling much the same as legitimate pursuits are folio Aved.  But there'will be no public gambl-  ingii- Nelson during 1900, revenue  or no reA'enue.  "-"Tin. Rossland Miner uoav -snp-  < ports the Semlin government. This  gives the government'three independent morning papers in the  southeastern portion of the province, AA'hich means -a good deal.  Greemvood, Rossland and Nelson  are centers of population, aud iu a  general election -the three hcavs-  papers in question Avould have considerable influence, Opposed to  the government is a,morning paper  at Nelson and an evening  paper at  Rossland. _________  Tub Semlin government, not-  Avithstanding all reports of its early  defeat, seems to be getting along  fairly A\*ell���much better than when  it had the support of the turbulent  "Joe Martin. Were it to pass the  - estimates and-adjourn -it would-be.  doiug the people of the province a  lasting serA-ioe.  Grti-I-Nwoon has a morning paper  in the Times * that it should be  proud of. It is Avell edited and  well printed. Duncan Ross is its  manager.  Takes the Miner Seriously.  Ki-.Toit of Tin. Ti.ii-i'Ni.. We  were not aware Kootenay journalism held anything in its editorial  chairs so innocent of .-.tatistics as  the Nelson -.���.liner. In no uncertain  tarms it- denies that "theoccupation  of mining is particularly hazardous  and unhealthy,'' a denial avc fear  it can in nowise substantiate: and  we therefore venture it shamefully  presumes on the credulity of its  readers. "The claim is not true,"  says the Miner. It may never before haA*e occured to that journal  that the people have a right to expect at its hands common civility  at least, even if courtesy is unknoAvn  in its ethics. For his informrtiou  AA*e may state, the chum of the  miners above quoted AA'ere not, put  forAvard particularly to &upport  their demands for fair wages, nor  even to induce in the editor of the  Miticr any apoplectic disorders. He  is so good, hoAvever, to .suggest  another excellent argument, Avhy  the men aie entitled to their demands. K. P. Bl_i_.MNI_K.  Weapons of the Boers.  The Aveapou Avith Avhich many of  the Boers are armed is the sporting  model of the German Mannlieher,  knoAvn as the Haenel model. Its  calibre is .30 for the rifle and .24 for  the carbine. It AA-eighs abqut eight  pounds. The bullet for aa*ju' is full-  mantled, with a fine outer skin of  copper or nickel. That for game  shooting is only half-mantled,- leaving the lead point exposed so that  it opens back or mushrooms when  it-strikes. At less than 1000 yards  it bores a hole right through a bone  without splintering. But when it  upsets the shock is terrible. The  bullet literally smashes the flesh  and bone into fragments. It has  been charged that the Boers are  using the soft-pointed bullet in  their deadly Maenel-Mannlichers.  The majority of the Boers are arm  cd Avith Mausers.  {?a_iactiatt Slews Briefs.  A. P. Lowe and E. R. Faribault  of the  geological  survey,  Ottawa,  have been  appointed in charge of  the mineral exhibit ut Paris.  The Pacific Cable Scheme.  Washington, January 11.���Official reports received by rear-admiral Bradford, chief of the bureau  of equipment, from lieutenant commander II. M. Hodges, commander  of. the Nero, announce the feasibility of a cable route across the Pacific, connecting San Francisco, Honolulu, MidAvay Islands, Guam, Luzon  and Yokohama. The Nero surveyed betAAreeii Guam and Luzon  and then ran back to Guam, pursuing a zig-zag course in order to  sound along the route selected Avith  a view to obtaining tho best possible location for the cable. Then  she ran a straight course to Yokohama. She returned zig-zag'ging to  Guam and Avill zig-zag across the  line to the Midway Islands, and to  Honolulu, when her work Avill be  completed.  TJio.Nero has found a depth of  less than 3000 fathoms betAvecn Yokohama and Guam and Luzon and  Guam. Three thousand fathoms is  the extreme depth the authorities  AA'ere willing to lay the cable. The  cable between Honolulu aud Dongo-  la bay, which i.-. the Luzon terminus  of the line, will be US knots. Only  two offsets from the project in the  great circle route between the Mid-  Avay islands and Guam Avere found  necessary to avoid obstacles to suc-  "eeVsful laying" and "opeijatibn'of the  cable. The first was a submarine  mountain a short distance AA'est of  the Midway .--lands, and the second-  .in aby.ss more than 1000 fathoms  deep, found about 500 miles east of  Guam.       . ,, -  Will Protect Pulpwood,  To��onto, January M.���It is understood that the goA'ornmenb have  under consideration an amendment  to the regulations respecting pulp-  wood Avhich provides for the application of the manufacturing clause  -to spruce logs, thus practically putting them on tho same basis as saAV-  logs. The ordcr-iu-council will take  efl'eeb at the close of the present  license year, viz., April 30th, and  after that date no pulpAVood  cut on any timber limits sold  by the government can be exported from Canada. A A'ery small  quantity of pulp \Arood is uoav exported from lands on which the  settlers hold the patent. The total  amount thus exported in 180S was  about 5000 cords, but from figures  now available the export for 1S90  Avill be *-omething less. This order  in council is another illustration of  the government's desire to retain  for the people of Ontario the full  profits resulting from the products  of the forest, and Avill doubtless  meet Avith the same appro \*akis> the  orders relating to nickel and cop  I.er, Avhich were passed some Avc'-ks  since.  Unsuccessful Jail Breaking.  Br.r_i_.-Vii.i_.., Illinois, January 14.  ���The  city  prisoners  at St,   Clair  county jail made a break for liberty  yesterday.    One of them was- mor  tally wounded. The sheriff was also Avounded. Turnkey Phillips  opened the door to tho cage to give  the prisoners their supper. A  trusty pinioned his arms and the  others rushed out of the cage. The  turnkey AA'as forced into a corner and handcuffed and his  revolver and keys were taken from him. The cries  for belli were heard by sheriff Bar-  niskal, aa'Iio Avas at supper. Ashe  ran up the stairs Ed ReAreilly, a  prisoner, fired at him. He thrcAA'  his left arm over his head and re-  ceiA'ed the bullet in his forearm.  The sheriff then shot the prisoner  tAvice. One bullet entered his abdomen and he is dying. When the  police arrived, in ansAver to a riot  call, the officers could not get into  the jail until the doors had been  broken doAvn Avith a sledge hammer.  The prisoners AA'ere then driAren back  into their cells.  Sailing of the Second Contingent.  Halifax, January 11.���A telegram received at the brigade office  states that the Toronto company  Avill arrive here on Monday and the  Montreal and Quebec contingents  on Tuesday. Lieutenant-colonel  Burney, transport agent at Halifax,  has been asked by wire if it will be  possible to -have the troops embark  on the 17th aud sail on the 18th,  but the difficulty arising OArer the  outbreak of fever ou the Montezuma may alter the dates fixed for  departure. The commission of  medical men to consider the Montezuma's case began work this morning. They Avill superintend the  disinfection of the ship and report  upon the advisability of making  use of her.  A Canadian on the Climate.  Tohonto, January 11.���Private  Brettingham, of the Canadian contingent, writing from De Aar to his  father, says the climate of South  Africa is not A^ery enjoyable as far  as he has gone. At De Aar the sand  bloAA-s all day like a mist, and it is a  hundred in the shade. lie continues : "The Boers are only about  tAventy miles from here, and as AAre  leaA'e for the front in a feA\r days Ave  ���will soon meet them. The hospitals  here are full of wounded soldiers.  The men from the front say the  Boers are very cruel, and they kill  wounded men AA'hen they are Avith  the Red Cross AA'agons. It may be  some time before I write again, as  we do not take any kit with, us  when we move to the front."'  CO  O  CO  td  P-f  CD  JO  -P.

Thn government expert ,-it Washington, aa'Iio   handles   tho   dr.nlk.st
modern     explosives    as    a    clerk
handles   groceries,   laughed   \vlien
■I   asked    Iiiin   about   tho   terrible
and barbarru. effect of the lyddite
shells   Che  British are  popping at
their  Boer   brethren   in   front of
Ludy.sinith    and   tlio   more unpronounceable points in  South Africa.
"Tell   me,"   he   said,   "had   yon
rather bo choked off suddenly and
almost painlessly by a shock to your
entire system AAdiich left your body
unscathed i'ora respectable funeral,
or AA'ould you rather be torn, mutilated,   and . generally  chewed up?
Well,  loaA'ing humanitarian sentiment  altogether  out of  the question,    that  is  the   sole  and   only
practical difference between lyddite
shells   and the  old   gunpoAver affair.*..    If   one   falls   close   to you,
there is a  big  noise  and   a  shock,
aud it  is   all over,   Avhercas, with
the ancient shell  you  avci'o  either
blown  to pieces by  the explosion,
or, Avhat is more likely, cut up by a
Hying piece of  the ease.    That is
AA*hy lyddite was not barred at the
peace conference.    It is really more
effective in killing its numbers, and
if you   look at  it  from the right
standard,it is a sight more hitmaue."
Then ho permitted  mo  to  sit at
his feet and learn something of the
explosive Avith AA'hich' the Briton is
now   tearing lo pieces  the hostile
Boer.    Just what lyddite is, no one

not there to see, but, in experimenting here, at home, Avith thorite, Ave
have tried the matter on animals.
Not long ago, Ave set off such a
shell in the middle of a Hock of
chickens. Those who Avere not hit
by pieces of tlio shell Avere picked
up stone dead, just the same. There
Avas not a scratch on their skins,
but Avhen a\*c dissected them Ave
found that their blood A'essels were
choked ' with blood clots. The
point is that detonation stops the
action of the heart and the blood
vascular system at once.
This i-i not taking in account the
elVect of the fragments, which are
smaller than those of an old-fashioned shell, but have also a much
higher velocity. They penetrate in
much tiie same fashion as a small
bullet, and 'produce wounds .just as
effective for putting people hors
de combat, and not half so horrible.
"That is the whole story of this
humanitarian business. The lyddite shell-kills more people in the
same number of round?, and does it
much less barbarously. You have
to kill just about so many to end
any given Avar, so what is the difference Avhether you kill them in a
bunch or a few at a time? On a
humanitarian basis, the advantage
is Avith the lyddite shells, in my
humble opinion."

"It will only be necessary for j^ou
to drop about hnlf a teaspoouful of
the mixture into this cup of coffee
each morning," the circular said,
'and the taste for tobacco Avill gradually depart from him. He may
not cease the.nsoof tobacco immediately,^ but Avithin a A\*eek lie will
begin ito abhor tobacco if the mixture is giA-en to him faithfully every
And so the young Avife sent her
little 82 on and got a flagon of the
tobacco cure.
"Pretty bum coffee this morning,"
he remarked dryly the first time
she dropped the half-teaspoonful
of the mixture into the cup.
"it's the same as avc'vc been using rightalong," she replied crafbily.
Noav, lo and behold! he was a
pretty smooth proposition himself,
and he had, unbeknoAA'st to her,
seen the package holding the flagon
of agin tobacco mixture when it
Avas deliA'ered.
So after dinner that evening he
produced a large bulky package of
fine-cut tobacco from his pocket and
took therefrom a plenteous cheAV of
tobacco., It Avas the first cheAA' lie
had c/ver taken in her presence, add
she marA'elled greatly thereat, but
she determined to persist with the
"Dead rank chicory again this
morning, isn't it?" he inquired at
breakfast the next morning.
"I'm sure it tastes the same to
me," she replied.
That evening after dinner he produced a short, black clay pipe and
a package of a neAV kind of tobacco
that AAras as black as the ground
work of a Jolly -Roger.
"Thought I'd bring this old
dudeen up from the office," he explained cheerfully. "It's as SAA'eet
as a. nut."
Whereupon he filled the house
with the aroma of punk that AA*as
strong enough to break rock.
"This grocery person Avho gets all
my AArages is certainly doing us on
the coffee game," he remarked AA'heu
he tasted his cup next morning.
"Really," she said, gazing innocently at the ten-cent bunch of
asters in the middle of the table, "I
can't detect any difference."

TlrefoUoAving from tho Railway
Age beats the record; for an old railroader, given. a few days ago by a
Campbell-ton, N". I.., exchange : A
great raihA*ay builder lias just died,
Avho Avas nearly .".0 years older tin. 11
the oldest railway in America, lie
was 4.8 when  our railway system
numbered 0000 miles, and he Avas
58 and the railway mileage of the
country Avasoiily 30.000 miles, when
he began the career of railway
building and financing in the west,
AA'hich made the name of John 1.
Blair conspicuous for nearly 40
years more. Since lie reached the
age of 70 there has been 121,000
mile.-, of road built in the United
States, and Avhen he died the rail-
Avays of the country aggregated
about 100,000 miles, all built after
he had passed nearly half of the
allotted three-score years and ten.
in his long life of 1)7] years the
science of transportation Avas en-
A*olved from the loAA*estto the highest order, and to Mr. Blair is due
some share of the honor for this
AA'onderful eA'olution.

.Editor    oi**   This   Thujitxk:     I
read a few- days ago a pretty warm
attack on the idea of sending out
to  Africa a  body of English yeomanry, and a lively article  on the
subject by sir Charles Dilke.  GraA*c
mistakes have been made by all the
generals in the AA-ar at present raging in Africa.     General -White lias
nobly   aud   handsomely   taken   on
himself the blame of the only mistake by his corps,  and in  addition
has most  certainly redeemed himself by his gallant defence of Ladysmith against an almost overwhelming army of Boers, led by European
officers and general .Toubert, a man
of very  little  less  pretensions   to
rank or braAery than those  of our
or any European  army.    Generals
Methiien, French and Buller  haA*e
yet to so act in  order to convince
Englishmen   that    they    are    not
machine-made,    as     many     think
them. - General   French,   eA'idently
acting under the idea that it is not
alone British bulldog courage  that
is going  to  defeiit the enemy, but
from   what,  in   iny 02_inion,  is   a
A-astly truer and better plan, gained
from his  frontier  experience Avith
the   Canadian   mounted  police,  of
AA'hich  he   Avas   the  first   commissioner.    He  belieA*cs  that   bulldog
courage,  backed  by superior  generalship, by AA'hich he  can outflank
the  enemy and  get  them   in  the
open, Avill certainly and surely lead
to a quick and decisive A'ictory, by
AA'hich the Boers will be so disorganized that it will quickly decide the
.Avar.in a.manuei-,„ej'editable to .him:

GiA-e  mo  one thousand  Nortlnvest
frontiersmen, such as this  country
can boast of, men Avho are  Avilling
and ready to   fight  as   their  comrades in arms are uoav doing at the
front, and  I will   guarantee   that
any English general  would  gladly
lead  them,  not only against   the
Boers, but against any body of men
in arms in any country.     No  men
arc so naturally adapted for roughing and fighting a guerilla AA*arfare,
such as will be in vogue  in  South
Africa as  the  colonial  police and
frontiersmen.     Ex-mounted police
and prospectors and  coAvboys  are
much more to be desired than   men
from the  larger cities  of Canada,
and from what I can see and haA*e
seen since I came to this country, a
finer body of men does not exist in
the Avorld, and  with  them  I  class
the Australian  and  A'eAV  Zealand
contingents, both in regard to physique and fighting ability.
In addition I Avould avisIi to  say
that there are also in Canada thousands of Britain's braA*est and  best
AA'ho  are   principally    ex-mounted
police  and  men of marked riding
and shooting ability, Avho  like  the
celebrated ConnaughtRaugerscould
be.    led    not    only     against    the
Boers, but against the gates of hell.
I   know   some   hundreds    of  men
among these different classes  aa*1io
are magnificent men in the saddle,
good packers and men who are first-
class shots both with  rifle and  revolver   and   able    to    stand any
amount of fatigue Avithout shoAving
ill effects afterwards.     Here again
a difference  must  and  does, exist
betAyeen them and the English yeomanry, Avho   have no training, no
roughing and no riding or shooting
to qualify them for Africa with its
dangers and Boers.
Again, no men outside of the
States, except Canada, are everyone and all moderate, -much less
good re\7olver shots, and here again
is a point strongly in favor of a
third Canadian contingent AA'hich I
trust may be sent out, picked as I
suggest, and I -will be only too
honestly glad to take my part Avi th
them, and come out with so good a
record.    I am, sir, yours,

RATTRAY & MERRILL  CITY LOCIU NEWS  The C. P. It. location party expected in Nelson for several clays  lias arrived and will go out on the  lino of the Balfour extension today.  J. Holden is the transit man in  charge, and the party is working  mider the direction of Mr. Procter,  construction engineer.  Judge Form will sit in chambers  this morning at 10 o'clock to determine as to the validity of the disputed ballot cast in the East ward.  The point is of considerable interest,  as in the event of the ballot being  counted the vote for Chris Morrison  and J. A. Irving will be a tie.  The trustees of the general hospital did not meet last week, as  enough members did not atteud to  form a quorum. The meeting is  adjourned till tomorrow.  Fifteen patients are undergoing  treatment at the general hospital.  The house physician has been compelled to refuse several eases during the past week through lack of  accommodation. The new wing of  the hospital is badly needed,  though, fortunately, the cases under treatment are not of a dangerous nature, with the exception of  that of Sidney Watson, Avho is in a  precarious condition, and will probably have to submit to a delicate  operation.  When moving from the 0. P. It.  dock to the city wharf on Sunday  morning the steamer Moyie ran into the new slip in front of the Mirror Lake Ice Company,s warehouse.  The Moyie was not damaged.  The prospects for skating at the  rink are brighter than they have  been for some time. Upon the hill  the temperature is considerably  ' lower than it is down town, anil  the snow is not melting. The rink  management is hopeful of opening  at an early date.  A carload of purifiers, the last of  the lot for tho gas works, is'expect-  ccl today. Work: is progressing rapidly on the buildings, and the management is sanguine of being able  to supply gas to consumers within  a month or six weeks. The rivet-  ters are busy on the gas holder, aud  the clang of their hammers is incessant .during the day, resembling  nothing so much MS a boiler shop in  full swing.  Mr. Amos has purchased G. A.  Hunter's new house on Carbonate  street.  The oilice of the public school inspector for Kootenay and Yale will  be located in future at the Central  school on Stanley street. Inspector  Burns is making tho necessary ar  rangements to open an office in one  of the teacher's rooms, where lie  maybe found by those having busi-  nes.s to tranact with hs department.  D. IJ. Bogle, who edited Tiik Trii.-  uni-_ during the city campaign,leaves  for Rossland today, lie expects to  make a month's trip through the  Boundary country.  John O. Began, one of the best  known miners in the Slocan, will  take a trip to the Sumpter, Oregon,  country, to look the held over for  mining A*entures.

Mr. Crosby has labored  for 38, years among the aboriginies  of this province, and is a most entertaining speaker. This is his first  visit to Nelson, his field being on  the north coast of the Pacific.  The C. P. R. location party which  is here in connection with the Balfour extension includes the following members: J. C. Holden, L.  Thomson, O. Thomson, J. MeCul-  lough, A. Harrington, A. Linualson,  W.

The project of establishing a high  school in Nelson will have a strong  supporter in the person of inspector  William Burns, who has returned  from a lengthy trip through his  northern district. Mr. Burns says:  "I shall be very much pleased to  see aliigh school in Nelson, and one  in Rossland as well. The nearest  school of the kind is at New Westminster, and parents who desire  their children to take the highest  branch of education frequently  send them to the East, where fees  and living expenses are much lower  than in this province.  Victoria's New City Council.  Thursday's election created  several changes in the make up of  Victoria's city council for the ensuing year. Charles Hayward who  sat in the council last year has replaced Charles E. Redfern as  mayor. The new alclarmanic board  is made up of Kiusman.Biydonand  Beckworth from the North ward,  Williams, Stewart and Yates from  the Center ward, and Cameron,  Cooley and Hall from the South  ward.    May Cut the Cable.  Ni_\v York, January 14.���Tho report that Russia and France have  addressed representations to England respecting interference with  private and official dispatches over  the eastern cables is entirely without foundation. , Tt would have  been strange had"they doiie so, be-  _cause nothing is "clearer than that*  the international telegraph conventions do not apply jn the time of  war. As a matter of fact, the'Brit-  ish government asserts that its undeniable rights have beeu exercised  with extreme moderation, and the'  tenderest regard of foreigners. If  any government should attempt to  make a difficulty it would be the  easiest thing in tho world for the  British admiralty to give the hint,  aud within a few days the cable  would be accidentally cut. in the  neighborhood of Delagoa bay. Be  fore lie loft London general Buller  suggested this very course, on the  ground that it was evident that, in  spite of the Care exercised by military censors, the enemy was getting valuable information. But the  government preferred to go on the  principle of giving the smallest provocation possible.
