MARTIN'S LOST CONFIDENCE  In the Seinlin Government.  VifToin.., January 20-[Special  to the Tribune].���This was a day of  routine in the legislature, good progress being miido -with many bills.  That to amend tlio Jurors Act provides for the, payment of giand  jurors, in accordance with many  representations made from all parts  of the province.  A question on the subject brought  out the information that the crown  grants issued for the British Columbia Southern land subsidy, already  stated to have been made under  pressure of threat to close down  the Crow's Nest colliery operations,  were for (51.1,533 acres.  The Vancouver electric and gas  companies are vigorously protesting  against the proposal to so amend  the city's charter as to abolish tlio  requirement of compensation in  the case the city undertakes similar enterprises on its own account,  and also the power sought to be  obtained to compel the placing of  all wires underground.  Joe Martin gives notice of a  want-of-eonfidenee resolution, based  on the, Deadman's Island affair.  Since he cannot hope for' the support of the opposition as a body on  this issue, the ex-attorney-general  no doubt brings ib up as'a peg upon  which to hang sin indictment of his  successful rival for tho; mastery of  the administration.  be increased from $2,000,000 to  $-1,000,000. ItisalsosaidthatMr.ConV  nors may be chosen president of tho  company, if he desires position. The  Canadian k Inland Transportation  Company was chartered a year ago  by the Canadian parliament, and  has a very extensive and sweeping  franchise, permitting the company  to maintain an international common carrier business, to carry passengers as well as grain and general  freight; also to erect warehouses,  elevators, docks and piers wherever  it may desire to do so, within tho  territory of the Dominion. It is  also permitted to sell or abandon  such properties at any time. The  company has leased offices in Montreal, und i.s quite likely to establish branch offices in Duluth, Chicago and Buffalo.  TALE OF WARREN'S DEFEAT  FORTY THOUSAND MORE MEN  Raised for Service.  January    29.���History  Want to Increase the Number.  Viotouia, January 21.���-Thecommittee of -citizens, appointed at the  public meeting last week in connection with the provincial offer of  troops for South Africa, met today  and decided to start a movement  to have private enterprise supplement the provincial government's  offer, so as to biing the total number of scouts to 2.")0 iu place of 100.  This would remove the objection  - raised   by   .Dominion    government  . that  there is no space available on  transports   already   arranged   for,  "* and that* 100 men .would bo too  small a contingent to jus. Sif y special  transport. It was resolved to undertake "to laise in Victoria fifty  men of ihe extra hundred and fifty  suggested. All other cities in the  province will be invited to cooperate. '   Two Miners Drowned.  VirT0i-i.\,  January 29.���Captain  IIan.-*en and James Moir  have, met  death by drowning near   Kyoquot,  on   the   West    Coast,   their   boat  swamping on the way to their mining camp  at  Capo  Cook, near  by.  Hansen was a ..ernian  who joined  the  ranks  of  the Victoria  sealers  after his schooner, under  tho  (_er-  man iiag, had got into serious trouble with   tho .Russians  for raiding  ���their  sealing  grounds.    He  had  a  weakness   for  this form  of  cuter-  prise, and  two  years after establishing in  Victoria  he was caught  red-handed raiding on   the  United  __Statos r_ookeries_oii__tlie  Bribyioff-"..-  To the sealing fleet he was known  as  the  "Flying   Dutchman"  from  the.mystery constantly  enveloping  Lis movements*.  Offer Will Bo Accepted.  VicToniA, January 2S.���The official acceptance of British Columbia's offer of a mounted troop ot  one hundred men for South Africa  is promised on Monday by Dr. Borden, federal minister of militia and  defence, in a telegram today to_pre-  liifor Seinlin. The acceptance wouhI  have been forwarded earlier but for  difficulty in arranging transport.  Recruiting will probably commence  next week, and be rushed as much  as possible.  Has" No Sympathy for Boers.  Victoria January 29.���Captain  Cliristensen, the well-known pilot  of this city, characterizes as an absolute fake the story appearing in  tho Montreal Star that he presided  at a meeting of Boer sympathizers  in Victoria, at which subscriptions  iu aid of the cause were made. He  says lie knows nothing of any such  meeting, and that his sympathies  are with the British side, as his  record during 3(5 years' residence in  Victoria would indicate.  To b<  .��������� Loxnox,  pause- for a time iu South Africa.  It is one of tho unsatisfactory  pauses that are nearly as trying to  British nerves as a sequence of reverses, and apparently it will terminate only when lord Roberts  gives the word for the movement  into the Free State, which, according to the most cheerful view, he  will be unable to do for a fortnight.  Whether he Avill permit geueral  Buller to make another attempt'to  relieve.Ladysmith is quite outside  the knowledge even of those closely  connected with the war office. With  the troops due to arrive next  month, ho may think himself strong  enough to.try two large operations.  Combining'the forces under general Methuen, French and Gatacre,  and adding to them the arriving  troops, lord Roberts would have  70,000 men for the invasion of the  Free State, with 10,000 to 50,000  guarding communications, and 10,-  000 trying to rescue Ladysmith.-  The public burns with impatience  that something should be done, but  there is nothing- done but  to wait on the preparation's.  The government's declaration in  parliament, the counter suggestions  of those outside the government,  and the consequent discussion in  the press and on the platform, will  immediately en thrall public interest.  The thing on wliich everybody  seems   agreed   is  that more   men  Driven Out By Boer Fire.  London, January 29.���A special  dispatch from Frere camp, dated  Friday, January 20th, says : "I have  just ridden in here, having left  geueral Buller's forces in the new  positions south of the Tugela, to  which they retired in consequence  of the reverse at Spion Kop. The  lighting both before and after the  occupation of the mountain Avas of  a" desperate character.  Spion Kop is a precipitous mountain, overtopping the whole line of  kopjes and the upper Tugela. On  the eastern side the mountain faces  Mount Alyo and Potgier's drift,  standing at right angles to the Boer  central position and Lyttleton's advanced position. The southern  point descends in abrupt steps to  the lower line of kopjes on the  western side, opposite the right  outposts of Warren's force, it is  steep to the point where the nek  joins the kop to the main range.

Twenty thousand, two  hundred and twenty-two men, and  155 guns'are at sea, and 11,000 infantry and 9000 cavalry, including  5000 yeomanry, are practically  ready to embark. Therefore, the  government, without" doing more,  can place at ihe disposal of lord  Roberts -10,000 additional men, aud  155 guns.  The further purposes of the, war  office are supposed to embrace  somewhere in the neighborhood of  -10.000 men. As tho indication is  that candidates will be rather  scarce, tlio war office will issue  .orders ibi-the reservist-ij-who-wcre  found unfit at the previous mobilization examinations to report for  fintlu_r examination. Applicants  for cavalry service are still freely  offering as yeomanry.  General Buller's operation-, has  cost 912 men so, far, officially reported within ten days.' Applying  to the 200 Spion Kop casualties reported today, the rule of proportion,  the loss of officers indicate probably  500 casualties yet to come. The  total casualties of the war, compiled from official reports are 9523,  nearly a division. Of these 2480  are killed, 1811 wounded, and the  rest prisoners. ,Thc aggregate  -British home trpops in South  Africa number 110,000, the Natal  T15S and Cape Colony 21,000.  Connors Makes Things Move.  . JirKFAho, January 29.���The Commercial today says : The American  A: Canadian syndicate, represented  by William B. Connors of Buffalo,  lias acquired the valuable franchise  owned by the Canadian k Inland  Transportation Company, and the  capital stock of the company  will  Fatal Boiler Explosion.  PiTTsT.t'l-.;, Januaiy 29. ��� The  steel department of Phillips, Ni-  mick <S_ Go's, rolling mill, on West  Carson street, was completely  wrecked, and a dozen men were injured by an explosion of a battery  of four large boilers this afternoon.  Five men were mutilated, almost  beyond recognition, and one or two  more deaths may result. The roof  of the boiler room was completely  lifted from the building, and the  flying iron and steel fell iu all  directions. The men were crushed  Lo the ground on the spot, where  they were attending to the rolls.,  and those beside the boilers were  scalded by the escaping steam.  The cause of the explosion cannot  be known until a thorough investigation is made. No estimate of the  property loss could lie made today.  allows easy access to the summit  The nek was strongly held by  the Boers, who also occupied a  heavy spur, parallel with the kop,  where the enemy was concealed in  no fewer than thirty-five rifle pits,  and was thus enabled to bring to  bear upon our men a damaging  cross fire, the only possible point  for a British attack being the south  side, with virtually a sheer precipice on the left and right.  A narrow footpath, admitting  men in single file only, to the summit opeiis into a perfectly flat  tableland, probably of 300 square  yards area, upon which the Boers  had hastily commenced to make a  traverse trench. Our men were  able to occupy the further end of  this table land, where the ridge descends to another flat, which was  again succeeded by a round stony  eminence, held by the Boers in  great strength.  Tho,ridge held by our men was'  faced by a number of strong little  kopjes, at all angles., whence the  Boers sent a concentrated fire from  their rifles, supported by a maxim,  Nordenfeldt, and a big long range  gun. What with the rifles.and the  machine guns, the bill-unit was converted Into, a perfect hell., The  shells exploded' continually in. our  ranks, and the rifle fire, from an absolutely unseen enemy, was perfectly appalling.  Reinforcements were hurried up  by general Warren, but they 'had  to cross a .stretch of fiat ground,  which was literally torn up by the  flying lead of the enemy. The unfinished trench on the summit gave  very questionable shelter, as tbe  enemy's machine guns were so accurately ranged upon the place  that often sixteen shells fell iu the  trench in a single miuYite. Mortal  man could not permanently hold  such a position. Our gallant fellows held it tenaciously for twenty  hours, and then, taking advantage^  ofT flarkiiesVabTindoirecl���if_to���the  enemy.

KRUCERS DEMANDS GROW  Will Require British Territory.  Berlin, January 29.���To the correspondent of the Associated Press,  who interviewed him today, Dr.  Leyds made; the following statement: "I know-nothing about the  reported' missions, of- either Macrum  or Webster Dnvi.*-. Nor, to the best  of my knowledge, is either the bearer of a message of peace.   There are  no movements under way on our  part to induce.president McKiniey  to intervene between Great Britain  arid-.the Transvaal. As I. do not  have at present* direct, communication with Pretoria, I do not kuow  what MontagheTWhite's mission is,  : except to establish diplomatic rela-  ?tions with the IJi.ited States.  "All thistaik; about peace is sadly premature. -JGreat Britain surely  .will not succumlXiVow, neither will  we. While we are talking here, it  may be that a-decisive battle is being fought there, for I presume lord  Roberts has withdrawn the troops  from around Ladysmith, and is  niassiug them. ,-for a formidable  coup." _ ' ��� " -,' ...,.y; '.".  Dr. Leyds repeated his former declaration, that the Boers when .conch-ding peaces would .want back  part at least ��� of the territories  which England,! "stole from the  Boers." c He rather expects also that a harbor south  of Mozambique will go to the  Transvaal. '"For-our legitimate extension," he added, "we need free  access to the sea." He asserted  .emphatically th.-Vt.Qne condition of  peace would'be the recognition of  the absolute independence of the  Tran s vaa I.   Hagler Was Committed.  Still-Ion l'.ty_troalr.  The case against William Hagler,  secretary of the Sandon Miners'  Union, had its hearing at Sandon  on Friday. W. A. Macdonald' defended Hagler, while I-1. L. Christie,  acting in the interest of the Payne  company, prosecuted,  Mr. Hand was  the first witness  called, and under  the  guidance of  Mr. Christie, brought put a story of  the proceedings of the  evening of  the 14th. when the unlawful assembly   i.s   purported   to have   taken  place.    The intention  of   his   evidence was  to prove   that   Hagler  used abusive and   threatening  language, both to himself and  others  present.    Cross-examined   by   Mr.  Macdonald, he  acknowledged  that  he was armedJiimself;_th_iLt_he_sa\v,  "no "armed   persons   in   the   party  vy'hich accompanied Mr. Hagler, and  that" outside   of   being    violently  abusive    the    language* was   not  threatening; iu fad, that   they did  not jostle or   threaten   him   with  bodily harm in any way.  > George Hughes was  next called.  His    evidence   .substantiated    21r.  Hand's in the main  features.      lie  also intimated  that the language  u*-ed toward Mr. Hand was nob the  kind   taught   by   the   missionary  societies, but he.nlsodisclainiedany  knowledge of  any   (brents  of per-'  -jonal violence.  John' Daly, bookkeeper for the  Payne, was also on the scene at thi.  time, and his evidence was re.juisi-  tioned by the prosecution. His  story was .-.inular to that of Messrs.  Hand and Hughes.  After cross-examing DaJy, 2Ir.  Macdonald called on Peter McDonald, Robert Morrison and it. G. McLean to give their version of the  affair. They are members of the  miners' union and consequently  presented the other side of* the case  but the substance was the same, i.e.  that Hand was called by some  rather unconventional epithets, but  no war dances were perpetrated or  flank movements indulged in.  After hearing all the evidence,  which took from 2 o'clock in the  afternoon until midnight, magistrate Lilly reserved bis decision  until 10:30 Saturday morning when  he committed the accused to stand  his trial at the next court of competent jurisdiction. The effect of  this will be that secretary Hagler  will probably be tried at the Nelson  assize court in May next.  At Last Evening's Council Meeting.  The city council met last night,  mayor Houston, aldermen Arthur,  McKillop, Hall and Wilson being in  attendance.  A communication was read from  Macdonald & Johnson regarding the  agreement between the city and  the C. P. R. It requested that the  city should take steps to remove  squatters from the land in issue  and expedite the transfer thereof.  The council authorized the mayor  to dispose of the shack now stand-;  on the property'used as a pound,  and that Macdonald & Johnson  draw up the necessary documents  for submission to the council.  Hon. J. Fred Hume wrote, acknowledging the receipt of suggested amendments to the water  clauses act.  Stutter & Etter applied for permission to cut ice on the city reservoir, which was refused.  L. A. Campbell wrote offering to  supply the city with electric power  from the Bonningtoii Falls plant.  As the matter had been dealt with  at a previous meeting of the council, the letter was filed.  The council proceeded to ballot  for the position of city solicitor.  The only application filed was from  P. E. Wilson, who was appointed  on a division of 4 votes to 1, the  other ballot being east in favor of  S. S..Taylor, Q. C.  Communications from the city  clerk.of New Westminster, and the  manager of the Electric Lighting  Company at Vancouver, with information regarding water meter  rates in operation at these points  were read and filed for future use.  Aldermen Arthur and Hall moved that assistant city clerk Wasson  be_ appointed city treasurer and  that he be required to furnish a  bond for the sum of $5000 in a  .guarantee company doing business  in British Columbia. Carried.  _ "Aldermen Hall and Wilson moved  that all city checks be^signed by  the'chairman of the finance committee and the mayor.    Carried. ���  Mayor -Houston put himself on  record as strongly of-opinion that  all officials who handled city money  should be required to give bonds.  The recommendation was favorably  received, and on motion of aldor-  men Arthur and McKillop it was  resolved that the mayor, city clerk  and collector of city rates and taxes  must furnish bonds of $5000 each.  Aldermen Wilson and Hall moved  that the advertisement for tenders  for macadamizing Baker street,  timber for wharf, supplies for same  and construction of same be inserted in the daily papers for three  insertions, and in the weekly paper  one insertion.    Carried.  Martin O'Jlielly requested the  city council to place a sidewalk on  the east side of Hall street from  Mill to Latimer, and also drew,the  council's attention to the fact that  .a.bhaek-wa-s standing- on-the roadway in front of his residence. The  matter was referred to the board of  ���works.   '  Alderman Hall reported on behalf of the .special committee named  by the mayor at last meeting, that  they had secured the Nelson, Coke  k Gas Company's recently vacated  office on Kootenay street at $15 per  month for the purpose of holding  police court sessions, and recommended that a portion of the reere-  litioii grounds be fenced for storing  .material belonging to tlio city, The  report was adopldd, nnd a resolution  passed authorizing the mayor to,  make .such arrangements a.-, are  ncces-ary to carry tiie report into  effect.  A check for $339.07 freight on a  shipment of wire via the C. P. R.  was authorized.  The mayor .suggested that ".oiuc  decision be arrived at in the matter  of water rates, as the end of the  month was close at hand and the  citizens would be anxious to know  definitely what was to be done.  His idea was that the original  schedule should be adopted, with a  should be compelled to  connect at  once.  While discussing the water rates  topic informally, alderman AVilson  remarked: "I know one thing, P.  Burns k Company get water much  cheaper in Nelson than at any other  point in the Kootenay."  In future all consumers will be  notified by the second day of each  month as to the amount of water  rates.  Alderman Arthur gave notice  that at the next meeting of council  he would introduce a bylaw to levy  a city road tax.    Carried.  The mayor was authorized to  purchase 500 dog tags.  It was resolved that for the present the old rate of electric light  rates would be adhered to, until  the injector's report came in.  SPENCER WILKINSON TALKS  On the Transvaal Situation.  London, January 30.���Spencer  Wilkinson, in the Morning Post,  says: "Defeat is bitter, but it is  right to face it, and to take reasonable means to turn it into victory.  It   is  wrong  to try to conceal  it  from ourselves. The initiative is  now again with the Boer commander, and.the question is what  will he do next. He will either act  against Ladysmith or against general Buller. In the hitter case pursuit would be useless, for when the  British force is once across the river  again, it will be impracticable for a  small rear guard could prevent pursuit. Much more probable would  be au attack oh Chieveley, before  the return of the main body. Either  that or a fresh assault on Ladysmith may be/recorded in a day  or two."  Mr. Wilkinson then proceeds to  point out the groundlessness of  fears that stragetie suggestions  made in England might be'useful to  the enemy. He says that the censorship stands in the wsiy of any  such benefit io the Boers, and that  moreover if the Boer generals want  .suggestions' tliey- ,ean ��� -easily get  them from the German'press." As  such matters are likely to come  under the attention pf parliament,  he discusses at length questions of  artillery and the like, concluding as  follows: "The measures now  urgently needed are the development of the military resources" of  the country by the initiative of the  government. With 100,000 men 'in  the field, and 50,000 to follow, the  moment has come to push on the.  training of all the troops left at  home, and to raise further troops to  supply the further needs of the  campaign."  LICENSED VITUALLERS DINE  At the Queen's Hotel.  The members of the Licensed  Vituallers' Association held! their  first annual banquet at tho Queen's  hotel last evening, when they  proved theniselve-* to be entertainers of the first order. The  vituallers' banquet differed fiom  most other affairs of the kind which  have taken place in Nelson, in that  there was more fun and less ceremonies in its arrangements. It  proved to be a. most enjoyable entertainment and the office! s of the  association who had its management in band should be thoroughly  satisfied with the result.  E.

In some  sections of the district the provincial police officers are recruiting  volunteers for service in South  Africa from the union miners who  have been thrown out of employment by the refusal of certain mine-  owners to recognize the laws of the  Iu  other "sections  mem-  lj|-?' country.  bers  of  tho  same  police force are  ior  m  Ik-.

P  Ij:  V"  Iti  I'!  \>f)  ���if  acting as convoys lor importations,  of aliens who are being brought into  the district to supplant Canadian  miners, whose offence consisted in  asking their employers  to  respect  ��� the laws of the province. It would  occur to most people that the government which calls for volunteers  for service in South Africa, from  the ranks of union miners should  concede to such miners, fair play in  their own country ; but it is not so.  The Semlin government has chosen  to assist union miners to the battlefields of South Africa, and at the  same time assist alien mine-owners  to fill their mines with aliens, to  the   exclusion   of   such   Canadian  'miner.*- as are not requited in South  Africa.  S_':c_-]_TAi-V HAOi-i-i- of the Sandon Miners' Union has been committed to stand trial upon'a charge  of unlawful assembly. It was conclusively proven that Hagler assembled, and that manager Hand of the  Payne mine also assembled. A'-ide  from this the evidence -was weak.  It was brought out that Hagler  used uncomplimentary language to  --lanager"Hand, and he was, there-  'Ve, committed to  ctr-ncl   his  trial  --.tpon acharge of unhiAN ful assembly.  Mauager'Hand admitted, during his  cross-examination, that he Avas himself armed, when seeietary Hagler  unlawfully  assembled, and it  was  _ also  hinted that lie used  uncomplimentary language to  the  sec. re-"  tary of theiriineis' union���but then  manager Hand was not being tried.  Tim aliens whom manager Hand  o_ the Payne mine _���_ bringing into  British Columbia are peculiar in  their method... The Dominion government's commissioner repoit*>  that they arc not brought into the  country cither under con ti act  oj promt, e of work, yet they  come in bunehe-* of thiity or forty.  They travel on special steamers and  special trains, and are billed  straight th rough t for the Payne  mine,- with ~proTiiieial-eoiist.ibles"  furnished in order that they may  not lose their way. The members  of the miners/ union think the  aliens are induced to come to the  Payne by promises of employment  ���but they must be mistaken because  commissioner Clute say.-, they are  not.

Tt has not yet been settled that  there will be a Muniner encampment, but in the event of such a  course being decided upon, the militia department will doubtless see  to it'that some more central point  than Kamloops ii*. selected.  HOGAJSTS   NEW   RULES.  Malachi Hogan. tlio Chicago sporting writer and referee, has undertaken to revise the boxing nil.-..  They are framed on the lines laid  down by the marquis of Queens-  berry. Few of tho old rules have  been inatcjhilly changed, but several bine been added and some enlarged. The incident of the  Sharkey-Corbett fight in 1808, when  the former champion lost when his  second jumped into the ring, is cov  ered iu the new rules. At that  time Con McVey simply climbed  through the ropes, but did not  touch either man. The new rules  specify that for such an offence a  fighter shall not be disqualified, but  that the second shall be ordered  from the ring and the fight continued. The ease of a glove bursting  or coming off, as in the Sharkey-  Je-Tries fight, is defined and the  referee instructed to send both men  to their corners- until the glove is  replaced. Other points, such as the  ringing of the gong by a timekeeper  before a round ended, is made explicit. There is also a rule against  the throwing up of the sponge by a  second when the principal concerned is plainly able to continue the  contest.    The rules are as follows:  Till'- RULES IN'  DICTA.J..  1. To be a fair stand-up boxing  match in a twenty-four foot ring,  or as near that size as practicable.  2. No wrestling, hugging, heeling,  butting or gouging allowed.  3. The rounds to be of three minutes' duration, and one minute between rounds.  4. If either man is knocked down  he must get up unassisted, inside often seconds, the other man meanwhile to move about teu feet away,  so as to give the man who is down  a fair chance to arise. When the  fallen man is on his feet the round  is to be resumed and continued until the three minutes have expired.  If the man who has been knocked  down fails to be on his feet inside  of ten seconds allowed the referee  shall give his decision in favor of  the other man. ,    ���  5. hanging on the ropes in  a helpless state with his toes off the  ground shall be considered down.  SBCOXllS MUST KEEP OUT.-  (5. No seconds or any other person  except the principals and referee  shall be allowed in the ring during  thc_~rounds. Any second or other  'person.outering the ring during the  rounds shall be' ejected, and the  content shall continue and no foul  allowed on that account.  ' 7. Should the contest be stopped  by any i in voidable interference the  referee has full power to render a  decision.  8. Five-ounce special gloves, furnished by the club, to be used iu all  contests.  , 9. Should a glove, burst or come  off the referee shall order both men  to their corners, where the glove or  gloves must be replaced to the satisfaction of the referee. The time  consumed in replacing such glove  or gloves shall not be counted as  part of the time of the round.  10. A man on one knee is considered down, and if struck i.-, entitled  to the stakes.  IL. Only boxing shoes, regulation  style, with either chamois, eelskin  or rubber soles, allowed.  12. Fighting iu clinches is allowed, and means that a man may hit  with one hand free, but must not  hold-hiss- opponent's _glove,_arm_oi_  neck. "���   _  lo. Hitting* in the breakaway i.s  permitted, without stepping back  by contestants.  .MUST   [SI-._AK OX   ..._.-'J.I---J_'S  OKI--.1-.  1 !. When the referee orders the  men to break they lnu-at obey in-  stantly" and release each other at  once.  lo. Lying orleaning on au opponent, although nolholding him, after  the referee has ordered the men to  break, is not allowed, and l.ofcli men  must push oft together.  "ili. The official timekeeper of  Llie club -shall only time the rounds  and the rests between the round-s  and the referee shall be the only  one to time and count on knock-:  downs, in any manner deemed best  by him.  11. If in the opinion of the referee  tlio conto-itauts in a bout are '"faking," he may declare the same "no  content,'' in which event the club  need not pay the pur*-*e or any part  of it.  18. If a contestant commit a foul  wliich iu the opinion of the referee  is* uuinteutioital, and does not incapacitate hi*, opponent from continuing, he shall be warned, but if  the foul incapacitate his opponent  from continuing the contest, or in  the opinion of the referee destroy  his chances of winning, he shall be  disqualified.  li). If a man commit a deliberate  foul lie immediately disqualified,, and is to receive no part  of the purse.  . 20. If, in-the opinion of the  referee, a bout becomes .dangerous  to one of the contestants, or an immediate knockout seems una void-.  able, he may stop the contest and  render his decision.  21. Soft bandages may be worn  by the contestants, unless otherwise stipulated in the article of  agreement. ....... . ....  l)l_l'*IXITION (11-1 "KXOCKOl'T."  22. If a man is disqualified, or his  seconds throw up the sponge, or the  referee stop the contest to save him  (as per rule 20), it shall be considered the same as a knockout in less  rounds than the number of the  rounds in which this occurred, but  the men in their records can state  the exact occurrence.  2:3." If a second throw np the  sponge when it is apparent to the  referee that the principal can continue, and have a winning chance,  the contest shall not be stopped,  but the second so'offending shall be  ejected from the building and not  allowed to act as second again at  any future time before any club. ...  2-I. The foregoing rules will be  considered part of the "articles of  agreement" between the contestants  with each other a_jid_with the club  before whom they" are to box.  Sir Charles Boss Desires Service.  Sir Charles Boss, who is well  known throughout Kootenay, is in  Montreal just now, and is awaiting  news from the war ollice regarding  a handsome offer he made some  time ago. Sir Charles is not only  an able man, but is exceedingly energetic and enterprising, and.when  the war first started he  equip a brigade of six field guns to  go to the 'front entirely at his own  expense. Of course sir Charles intended to go to the front, too, and  he is' start just as soon as  the acceptance of his offer arrives.  Sir Charles has with him the model  of an army rifle that he has been  working on for over ten years. It  is now perfected, and so thoroughly  has it been tested that he has opened negotiations with the British  government with a' A'iew of haying  it officially tried. One of the principal advantages of the weapon is  its absolute simplicity, and in almost ten minutes a man could learn  to clean, load and fire it. The rifle  will hold from one to five cartridges,  and. the empty shells arc discharged  from the rifle without.withdrawing:  it from the shoulder, as is necessary  in the majority of weapons of that  sort. Sir Charles is also in communication with the government at  Washington, and should the officials  there care to see it, sir Charles  would iu all probability accommodate them.  l.UDSON'8 BAY7  COMPANY.  4  -^_-'_______--J ^E__!^*^' <____?-���<_-_: ��� ^y "<__r ��� f!j "J-Jr ��� *y '*'<_ffi�� -'J-***���_?__��� -jST ���/*_*" 4��:-P*��r0& %0* ��� *__r -0^ ��� ._*_ ���/���y * ��_������* ^.^_j^^^^���-^*^���'^' <___: "���0Br * _<_r '��jy.��� 0Sr ���/__!* ��� z'-jf ���*<__y.  ;����''*_.. <** ������^���-������^ .^ . >���**, ���*__.. *���____��, -^ ��� >��_��. �����*^.>_h> i-^v ��� *_��_. .���*___.--. ^-������^S'^ -5j^ -5J ���'!____;��� ���*__ 'Sir* ^ ������Si.'JBj.'^k, ��� �����__,. ��������___��, ���^f-* ��������-__. ������**-���_. ��� >���_, ���^���^  ..LACE ".CURTAINS    j  "from  k  "1  ��  )�����>  3<5 BAKER STREET  FBEE MING  of Table Glottis, Sheets  Pillow Cases, Etc.  to  to  Annual January Sale  WHITEWEAR,   LINENS, COTTONS,   ETC  Commencing Monday, January 21st.  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  Haying received our complete stock of Ladies- and Children's Whitewear, Table Linens,  Sheetings, Toweling, Carpets, Floor Oil Cloths, etc., we are in a position to offer at exemely  low prices these lines.

The pastor of Sb Paul's  said in part:  The words of lord Rosebery,  spoken last October: "Gentlemen,  make no mistake; this is no little  war," are proving true. More so,  (perhaps, than even he thought. We  are beginning to see that this is the  most serious war in which the  nation has been engaged since the  Crimea. Sometimes people, ask, is  Avar ever justifiable-' We might  ask, was the American war for-the  abolition of slavery justifiable ?  Few Christiaus deny that that was  a justifiable war. Taking the-world  as it is, and not as it should be,  war is often the only means to right  wrong, war may sometimes be  justifiable till the golden rule is the  law of the world.  Is this war in'whicli we are now  engaged a just war ? Unfortunately*  _ there are differences of opinion  , j about this. Some people think we  /.j are wrong and that, therefore, God  ' is punishing us ; and that the Roers  aro right and that God is on their,  side. It requires but. little knowledge of human history or of the  .-Bible lo know how false such a  theory-is; Was God on the side of  Turkey?' Y-_-t Turkey triumphed  and' prospered. Christ warned  against this idea that penalty  meant sin when he remarked that  those eighteen on whom the tower  of Siloan fell were ' not sinners  above all men that dwelt^ in  Jerusalem. We must guard against  an ignorant interprotationof events.  Let-it be true that au individual or  nation that falls into sin will not go  Avithout punishment. This can be  seeil in the history of any nation in  the world.  Sometimes 0od punishes by lotting alone, and that nieans to iier-  ish.    We  need   nob  be  pessimists  Ward Bros.

T.  and avc need not be croakers to recognize that there is much truth in  what has been pointed out by some  of the   Avisest   of   our  time���that  there   was   great   need   that   God  would send something to make the  nation think.    Jt is not always re-  incmbered that the real strength of  a nation is neither gold, iron, trade  nor armies,  but  its  faithfulness to  justice, the moral  law, and to God.  Our reverses have made us think  on these things.    They are a greater  and more lasting benefit to the empire than any easily .won victories.  We have already learned  to be less  contemptuous:   the   swollen   jingo  spirit has  received  a rebuke that  will   last.    We   are   realizing that  we have met a foe in many ways  not inferior  to  ourselves;  not less  brave, itnd it'cannot be denied that  they know something about strategy.    They'have reminded us of one  thing that some  were beginning to  forget���that a  strong faith in God  brought into Avar adds an elemeut  that is  of a  \*ery practical value.  Religion is  profitable  to all things.  Our fathers know  that well.    The  wars of our nation ueA'er Avere better fought  than  Avhen men prayed  and  sang   psalms   iu  every camp.  It's hard to beat men like that.  While   this is true, it   is not said  in admiration of the religion of the  Boers  and  depreciation of  the religion of our own army.    Rut while  the Christianity   of the Boers  does  not seem to be the  Christianity  of  Christ;-.let us respect it and refrain  from calling them hypocrites.    But  our own army is not destitute of religion.      We   have   many   devout  men among her leaders.    The question   is    do   avo    not   want   more  national recognition of God  in the  a If airs   of   the   nation ?   With all  her faults  God has given  has given  to our empire a great Avork to do in  the spreading   of justice, freedom  and religion,ancl it cannot be denied  that  she    has   been   in    a   large  men-iire faithful to her trust.   But  special     privileges     mean    special  duties.    Our   fathers have handed  down to us a  splendid -heritage  of  love, of freedom * and j ustice. Wherever the flag is unfurled we  give that, and   we expect to get it  where,  avc  go.    And every   Briton  knows that hU country can  secure  that for him.    The energy and progress of the nation  Avould be at an  end if we failed iu this.    Wherever  any people in any part of the world  refuses tliat common justice, liberty  and human  rights,  thou  it is  our  duty to compel them.  That is what  Ave are lighting for in South Africa,  not, as lias been suggested, to compel a pastoral  people  to giA*e the  control of their country to  a handful   of   mine   owning millionaires,  The cause lies deeper���it is  a question of liberty and rights  Whatever differences of opinion  there may have been as to the cause  of the Avar���differences Avhich I believe will grow less with.the new  light that  Avill   yet come.    This  is  certain:, that those who. are supporting the ��va'i'$a-nd--who-believe it  to be' just, are;not the jingoes or  the millionaires; but.- the hard-  worked toilers of"'the-nation.' They  are tiie mothers and/wives-who have-  given tlieir sons ancl husbands to?  iigjit. , Thdjliglit of many a life has  gone but, and: many* a home has  been made desolate. Tragedies that  lie too deep for tears are being enacted every day as the bulletins at  the AA'ar oflicc tell the awful tale of  the father, or of the son, who "will  ne\rcr be seen again till that last  great day Avhen the grave shall give  up its dead. Many more are living  on in the awful agonies of suspense,,  and there are maiiy others who add  to that the pain of --want. To us it  is scarce believable how much silent  heroism ancl Avant aro being borne  for this Avar by those who believe  it right, aud they don't murmur.  Therefore we need the reminder of  Kipling:  Let ii*. manage so as later wc can look him in the  face  And tell him what he'd very much prefer  That while he saved the Empire his- employer  saved his place.  And hi.-i mates���that's you and me���looked after  her. *"'  He's an absent-minded beggar, and ho may forget-  it all,  Hut wc do not want his kiddies to remind him  That we sent 'em to the workhouse while their  daddy hamiicred Paul,  So we'll help tho homes our Tommy's left behind  him. i  One of the finest things in the  ���whole story of this Avar has been  the splendid loyalty of Britain's  sons. Our oavii Dominion has not  been behind in that. From her,  too, will go, not only the costliest,  but Avhat many believe will be the  best contribution in every sense,  "Strathcona's Own."  As to the progress of the AA'ar,  despite what has been said, Ave have  made A'ery substantial advances.  We haA'e in three months rolled  back the invaders Avho boasted that  they had but to rise and SAveep us  out of Africa. Let us be generous  to our generals, who have done  much more splendid service than  Ave sometimes give them credit for.  We have now to deal .with what is  practically, a besieged country.  They have put their last: man iu  the field, while our armies are increasing every day. Let us lose  neither heart nor head. Our country, our soldiers, need our prayers.  "31'orc things are wrought by  prayers than this world dreams of."  Let us pray that Ave may come out  of this warf through God's goodness, justified and strengthened,  Avith the* jingoism gone, and in its  place the best manhood of the nation. Realizing more clearly the  burden of our mission:  w  Well, rather. We received an entire car,  (1300) of chairs last Tuesday, containing  fancy diners (in suits or otherwise), fancy  rockers in cobbler seat or wood, cheaper  dining chairs finished in golden oak and  cheaper ones still suitable for either dining  room or kitchen.

Testing   operations are sometimes  conducted in a black papered room,  but the funeral aspect of this sombre color sometimes has a depressing effect on sensitive people, especially on -women and children, -which  greatly detracts from the accuracy  of tests.    Here are found numerous  instruments which convey no meaning to the unprofessional mind, but  Avhich in the  hands of the expert  optician becomes the tools 'whereby  the innermost secrets of the eye are  bare, to be read by him with ease.  For instance, there is the Opthal-  mometer, for measuring the lesser  ancl greater curA*atureof the corner  of  the  eye,  for  the   detection  of  astigmatism.     A  wonderful ��� little  instrument  is  tho Opthalmoscope,  used for examining the interior of  the eye and detecting any diseases  of the same.    Defects in the vision  are perceived and remedied by the  aid     of   the     Retinascope.      The  mother of all  the  optician's  aids  .may be said  to be the trial  case,  which contains innumerable prisms,  glasses, etc., Avhereby all defects of  vision are diagnosed and prescribed  for;    There is a saying extant that  the student- of optics must destroy  a bucketful of eyes before mastering the science, but the eyes used  are hog's eyes, because nearest resembling the human optic.

BUSK'S   PROTEST.  _To the Editor of the Trii$.'N-_:  I have justf seen an article on page  *L of your _5biio of tho 25fch inst. in  which it is stated that "a wharf-  ownor iii) t'ie river" refused to allow the tug Hercules to remove a  boom of piles which was tied to his  wharf, and implying that' thereby  McArthur <fc Co. had been delayed  in doing their work. It is further  stated that "a new cable was secured and de ..patched to the wharf-  owner, etc."       '  .   Though my nanu.  was not  men-*  Lioned, it is  perfectly  well known-  who tho ������wharf-owner" is,for I had  heard of   the   article,  erroneously  quoted, with my name iu   it/some  daysbet'ore I rcceiveda copyof jtr  I am anxious to - deny , both  those  statements, without any qualification whatever, as being absolutely  false. ,     ' -_  1 did not red-he to allow-the tug  Hercules, or any other tug, to-take  the boom, nor put any impediment  in tlieir way. No cable or rope has  been returned to m'e up to this  present time of writing.  Now F should like to trespass a  little further upon your hpaee and  bo allowed to state the real facts  about the rope aud why the tug  Hercules did not take the boom;  but as my own name was not mentioned, I will not introduce any  others.  A contractor and three or four  men and four mules, all strangers  to me landed here one morning  from the -Moyie about 2 o'clock  without notice to get out piles for  McArthur k Co. 1 sold him twenty  tree*, which were to be paid for before  they were cut down, aud sub-  Kootenay Electric Supply & Construction Co.

Between the  cabin and the stable is a wagon  shed and in that shed was a good  iiH.h-and-a-quarfcer manilla rope,  worth* in a Nelson store $20. This  rope they took away from the shed  without saying anything to mo  about it and used to help them to  haul the logs in the woods with by  means of a block. . I do not think 1  should have lent the rope for any  such purpose had I been n^ked. Before they had got through with tho  job they had succeeded in breaking  the rope into several pieces, a fact  of which ! was unaware'till two  days afterwards. The logs were  then in the water, and I immediately notified McArthur and sent in a  bill to the contractor, at the same  time I told _.IcArthur that J "proi  posed to keep the boom here till  the rope was replaced. The contract or was a perfect stranger to  me and J had no other hold over  him. '  The water in which the boom,  was moored' was too shallow , to  allow the Hercules or the Jhilys to  come within two hundred feet of it.  but it. was' left there though I  pointed but a suitable locality for  it. hi or two the Hercules  called for it, but though it would  have been poled-out' by the man  left in charge the captain of the  tug refused to, take hold of it because it was improperly boomed  ancl would have come to piece.-.. The  captain explained what was wrong  and went away. Three or four days'  afterwards the tug called again, hut  the boom was in the same condition, and there was no representative of the owners to attend to it:  so again the llercnlc-. left it. Thinking the people might want the logs,  I sent word to McAilhur that I  would-tow them down myself, but  he bent up word that he would only  pay half the price I asked, so 1 left  them where thoy were. Then it  was that the article 1 complain of  was composed and published. Two  days after the publication thellalys  came and asked for the boom, thinking there was trouble, I told the  captain that I had no objection at  all to his taking it, only 1 wanted  him not to deliver it till McArthur  had undertaken to replace my rope.  This the captain undertook to do,  and I presume had an understanding with McArthur to that effect.  Ah the matter stands to ditto, McArthur has  my  logs and my rope  and 1 have got nothing.  Now just a few words in conclusion. There seems to be a very  prevalent and growing idea that  the whole of these premises are pub-  lie property, and that our houses  are regularly established places of  public entertainment. 1 could fill  an entire issue of your paper with  anecdotes of what we have had to  put up with during the last two or  three years from white men whom  we have tried to accommodate aud  assist.' At all events I want it to  be fully understood that in future,  as long as 1, have any control over  this property, no white man, except  my own personal friends, will bo  allowed to camp anywhere on the  premises for any purpose 'whatever:  nor will they be able, by purchase  or otherwise, to pbtaiji_ c-pucosKions.  for cutting' timber, whether for  wood, logs or piles; nor will they be  accommodated with the use of any  of the buildings, implements or  tools.' Thi.- rope and pile bsisine.'-.s  was the last straw, and it has broken  the camel's back.  CifAitU-.s W.

The change from  the old stand in the Arcade, where  for three years Mr. Wil/.in&ki conducted his business, to the new and  commodious quarters at II.'.

Great care and taste has been displayed in tho decoration and equipment of the new parlors.
