METHUEN'S ADVANCE BEGUN  Nothing Heard From Buller.  |r       London, February 7.���Lord Roberts has caused to bo distributed in  the   towns    bordering    upon    the  invaded colonial  territory,  an  invitation to Free Staters and Transvaalers    to   go   into    the    desert,  nITcring thorn good treatment, and  .    ti restoration tt  their farms 911 the,  Rritish  occupation  of   Republican  :,    territory. The manifestoguarantees  !-.    that those bringing horses can sell  them.    Foreigners will  have  their  ,.    passages paid to Europe.     Colonial  rebels are advised to surrender in  \    preference to being taken prisoners.  i>   .    Not a   word  has been  received  11   from the correspondents with gen-  ;__('fti'al Buller for three days.    It is as  _   ^though Natal' had  been- wiped oil'  map,    except   the. heliograin  L.idystnith, saying, that   the  ���:   the  [    from  Boers are cannonading and that  fighting is going on.  . General Mat-Donald, with 4000 infantry, cavalry and. artillery,  threatens the Boers'right at Mag-  ersfontein. > This is the first sign of  activity on the part of lord .Mefch-  ,-������ uen i'or some weeks, and doubtless  has relation to the movements of  British further east.  It appears that general French's  visit to Cape Town was to ask" lord  Roberts for 7000 more men.  Whether he got them, is not disclosed. Troops are no longer de-  1 tained at Cape'. Town. They proceed immediately to some point at  the front. Three thousand disembarked Monday and were quickly  seen elsewhere. No public reception was given to the arriving  volunteers tit Cape Town because  they had to leave immediately.  As lord.Roberts, since the battle  of Spion Kop, has had 20,000  fresh  troops to dispose of, it is  probable  that some  have   gone   to  general  I Buller.  The World says that it learns  that lord Mcthuen lias disbanded  the Remingtons scouts, one of "the  > most useful coloiiial commands, because he had ascertained that soipe  members of the corps Jiari been  communicating with the Boois.  Captain Congrove, who received  Lthe Victoria cross for gallantry in  endeavoring to save tho British  guns at Colenso, wi_.���__.: ' 1 never  sa.y. a Boer all day, and I don't  think anyone else did either, Tlious-  ' ands of bullets peppered and shells  .burst all over* the place, but the  Boers were invisible."  Oal'M' Town, February 0.���Five  Boer prisoners at Simons Town  -tried to escape last night. They  had firearms and wounded a prison  warden. Two of the fugitives were  wounded and all were rccaptiued.  Moni.i.i- Si'i-UiT, Monday, Februarys.��� On Saturday .the Pretoria  corps discovered a party of Bi itish,  from Ladysmith, entrenched at a  railroad bridge, protecting a number of coolies who wore cutting  grass. A party of Boors despatched  to the scene was attacked from the  "tru-Telies, ami a H're treated but four,"  who were hiding and were permitted to advance, to within fifty  yards,, when they fired a volley,  killing three men. This was seen  from the British fort, which fired a  shell and tout cavalry to assist the  "British. The Boers beat them back,  killing two men.  MoT.i.i-l-Si'iunr, February (3.-: A  message from Ladysmith, dated  February T.Ll_. says: "Continuous  cannonading litis been proceeding  ..since i> o'clock' this morning, with  the occasional roar of '"Long Tom."

Town, February 0.���President Steyn and president Kruger  communicated with field-marshal  lord Roberts, the British eom-  mander-ia-chief, protesting against  the destruction of farm houses and  the devastation of property. Lord  Roberts in replying, declared the  charges were not substantiated,  adding that wanton destruction of  property was contrary to J3iiti__.li  practices.  Will lie a Big Majority.  London, February 6.���There has  been a strong' effort among tlio  rank and file of the Liberals to serine the unanimous consent of the  -Regulations of Management.

Tt reads in effect that it is  agreed that tho canal can be constructed under the auspices of Ununited States government, which  shall enjoy all the rights of such  construction as-well as the exclusive right for providing for the  regulation and management of tho  canal. The following rules were  adopted as a basis of neutral i/a-  ;tion: :  First.���The canal shall be free,  and in time of war as in peace, to  the vessels of commerce and of war  ��� of all nations, on terms of entire  equality, so that there shall be no  discrimination against any nation  or its citizens or subjects in respect  of .the conditions of charges of  traffic or otherwise. -.  "'Second���The ctinal shall never  be blockaded, nor shall any right of  way if war be exercised, or any  act of hostility be committed within it.  Third���Vessels of war of a belligerent shall not take any stores in  the canal except so far as may be  sti icily necessary, and the transit  of such vessels through the canal  shall be effected with the least possible delay, in accordance with the  regulations in force, and with only  such intermit, sion ns may -result  from the necessities for the service.  Prizes shall be in all respects subject to the same rules as vessels of  war of the belligerent*.,  Fourth���No belligerent shall embark or .disembark troops, munitions of war or warlike materials in  the canal except in case of accidental hindrance of the transit, and  in such Lases the transit shall be  resumed with all possible dispatch.  Fifth- The provisions of this  article shall apply to .wateis adjacent to the canal, within three-  marine miles of cither end, and  vessels of war of a belligerent shall  not remain inside such waters longer  than 21 hours at any one time, except in case of distress, and in such  case shall depart as soon as possible;  but a vessel of war of one belligerent shall not depart within 21  hours from the departure of ' a  vessel of war of the other belligerent.  Sixth���The plant, establishments,  buildings and all works necessary  to tho construction, maintenance  and operation of the canal shall be  deemcd~to~be part thereof,-the-pu__=  poses of this construction, and iu  time of war, as in time of peace,  hhai 1 enjoy complete immunity  from attack or injury by belligerents, and from acts calculated to  impair their usefulness as part of  the canal.  Seventh.���No fortifications sliall  be erected commanding the canal or  the waters adjacent. The United  States, however, shall be at liberty  to maintain such military police  along the canal as may bo necessary  to protect it against lawlessness  and disorder.

Taffy Tor the Canadians.  KiN-fSTON, February 0.���Bruce  Camithers, stalT-sergeant iu charge  of the regiment signallers of the  Canadian first contingent at Belmont, writing says : "Lord Mel-  hucn told tho Canadians that they  were more likely to be attacked at  Belmont than if they Avere at Mod-  dor river, as they hold an important position.  About Sixty Names Enrolled.  The question of enlisting 40 men  in this district for lord Strathcona's  horse has narrowed. down to a  selection of the best men from  several score of applicants. Re:  cruiting was opened . at captain  -..{origins' ollice on Baker street  about U o'clock, and from that hour  to 0 o'clock last night major Leckie  whs kept busy attending to the  volunteers who desired to be  taken on.  Throughout tho day the recruiting   office   was    surrounded   with  eager volunteers, who seemed to be  imbibed with the idea that to secure the success of their plans it  was necessary to get within the  building immediately. An effort  was made to have the men come  in one at a time but the pressure  from without was too great, and  when -the door .was opened a dozen  pressed in crowding the interior.  This was the case throughout  the day, and many of the applicants  kicked their heels in the cold outside  for hours awaiting an opportunity  to interview tho recruiting oflieer.  Many of these came from Sandon,  Kaslo, Rossland, Hall's Siding, Ymir  and other, points in the district.  It was whispered that; major  Leckie had promised to take 20 men  from Rossland, but this is not confirmed.  When the volunteers had secured admission to. ; tho office  and reached the officer in  charge, they were required to  give particulars as to their age,  height, marksmanship, horsemanship, weight, former service, etc.  This having been taken down, the  likely looking men were provided  with a physician's blank form and  dispatched to Dr. Symonds for an  examination. Th'e medical test was  unusually severe, and it is .safe to  state that any man who passed  through Dr. Symond's hands successfully i�� indeed "sound ill wind1  and limb."  .. Lieutenant-colonel Morris of tho  Northwest Mounted Police arrived  from Regina by the .steamer Moyie  last night, and will participate in  the recruiting. When tho Nelson  quota��is complete colonel Morris^  will take command of the marcli-  ing-out parade. His experience at  police headquarters will be of great  value in the direction of choosing  the most promising men from  among the many who aro anxious  to enlist.,  The men who  applied  to  enlist  yesterday, with tlieir previous  experience, were ab follows:    William  11.

TO ADVANCE ON KIMBERLEY  : ���.     ������-:������ . :��.. .- ���  Macdonald's Brigade Moves.   ,'" "  London, February G.^-Tho- Standard has received the following dispatch, dated Monday, February 5th,  from Koppies Dam : "General Mud-'  ���dohald,"\vitii a brigade!;of infantry,  a regiment of lancers- and  one'bat-  tery.l^iis/'reacheri here from Modder  Rivtn^eamp, in what' isy regarded as  an   important .niovenient   to   the  right     of     the     Boer     position  at  Magorsfontein.

ADVANCE NOTJET BEGUN  Preparations Not Yet Completed.  London, February 0.���The impression that general Buller's forces  are fighting will not die out, iu  spito of the continuous assertion of  the war office that it has no news  to confirm that belief. From Cape  Town, under today's date, comes  the statement that up to this morning nothing has been heard there  regarding general Buller's reeross-  ing the Tugela river, while field-  marshall lord Roberts, in a despatch  .dated Monday, February 5th, reports ho change in tjie situation'..  In view of the latter's despatches  it seems hard to (-redit the circumstantial reports of the engagement-  of general Buller's troops. The  complete silence .from the front and  at home, may be significant as  the wiseacres aver, but it more probably represents that period of preparation which'"''.precedes - an important movement.  In other parts than tlio Tugela  the conditions of information ��� are  scarcely more satisfactory. There  is an inconclusive vagueness regarding general French's' reported intention to seize Norvalspont. with  .an overwhelming force of���'infantry/  While news of sharp fighting - in  the neighborhood of Colesburg can  ���.be"'fairly expected within a few  days, it is not likely that it will li's-"  sunie; greater proportions .than re-,  conhhissauce-. and skirmishes;; for  the purpose of holding the advanced positions of the forthcoming  main advance by way of Bloemfon-  tein. General French is strategically prohibited from running any  serious risks.  Lord Robert's reply to presidents  Kruger and Steyn creates an excellent impression here.  From Kimberley and Mafeking  there is nothing new, so that it can  be presumed that the intermittent  bombardment of these places continues.  C.U'H Town, February (..���Tho  Argus announces that ninety guns  have been dispatched from Pretoria  to the front, and that the,Pretoria  forts have been practically denuded  of artillery/  ing the chair returned his "thanks  for the honor conferred upon him,  and expressed the opinion that all  Nationalists in Ireland, America and  elsewhere would be rejoiced at the  day's work, which, ,. he declared,  bound all sections of the party for  for Ireland's good, which he hoped  would reunite Irishmen everywhere  in the fight for Ireland's rights. A  vote of thanks was then given to  Timothy Harrington for his success  in restoring 1 unity among the  Nationalists. Mr. Redmond was  the recipient of a multitude of con-,  gratulations.

This is incorrect. Mr. Rockfeller  has resigned the presidency of the  Ohio company meiely, and will be  succeeded by vice-president A. M.  McGregor of the New Jersey company.

Stewart,   who  has  the  contract  for  tho  Balfour  extension, was condemned unheard  by the Nelson   Minor, lie  does  not  propose  to  ignore  the  local  merchants in the purchase of supplies.  Tho merchants  of  Nelson   are   not  lacking iu  enterprise, and, iu  view  of   tho   assurances   already   given  some of them by  contractor  Stewart, they are  confident  that  they  will secure a Very considerable portion of the trade growing out of the  construction  work.     Probably the  first local industry to be benefitted  by the work is  that  controlled by  the Nelson  Saw  k  Planing  Mills,  Limited.    This firm has already received    aD   largo   order,   and   the  probabilities    arc     that    it     will  be     followed    by    others      when  the       construction        is        under  way.    Mr. Stewart  has also  given  another assurance which will mean  much to the  merchants  of Nelson.  He says that there will be  no time  checks issued on the work.    Wheu  the payday comes around men  employed on the work  will be paid in  cash.    This treatment of the  men  cannot but have   a   Arery  heal thy  effect upon the retail trade of the  local merchants.  The anuiial meeting of the  Canadian Press Associations ill be held  in Toronto on Thursday and Fiiday  next.      It is  to be  hoped that at  this  gathering  of pressmen    some  effort will be made to impioA'o  tho  news service  which  the  Canadian  Pacific Telegraph   Company  issues  to the pi ess of the Dominion as the  Associated Press report.   There ai o  sufficient  daily  papers  iu   Canada  now to entitle them to some  consideration from the news associations.      Thoy   should at least bo  a summary of the  principal  cities  in  They should ako  with      a      sinii-  l.roceedings     in  and       provincial  is  said   that  the  telegraph    corn-  education he learned the business  of a druggist, and when still quite  young went into business on his  own account, and met with marked  success. Even at this early age he  accumulated an immense fortune,  being now one of the wealthiest  men in Canada. Since ib became  known that he had been appointed  a senator he has been literally deluged with telegrams of congratulation. Mr. Ful ford was married in  1880 to Miss White of Fort Arkansas, Wisconsin, and they have a  family of two daughters, Misses  Dorothy and Martha, both of whom  arc now attending the Royal Victoria College, Montreal. Senator  Fulford is the maker of Dr. Williams' pink pills, and the principal  owner' in the Yellowstone mine  near Salmo.  r?~  Says Macrum Was a Coward.  London,   February    (��- ��� Canon  Farmer, who  was  forced to  leave  Pretoria with"' other British  clergymen, has arrived in London.    With  reference  to   Charles   E.  Macrum,  the former United States consul at  Pretoria, he said to  a  reporter  of  the Associated Press: "Mr. Macrum  was one of the last men  I  saw before leaving.    I  told  him   ho  was  taking the wrong side, and  did not  understand American feeling:    His  chief care seemed to be for his personal  safety, and I  think   it was  chiefly on that account that he left  in the midst of a crisis.    He is  not  a strong man, and  president Kruger may have t.iken  advantage of  this,   but   when   I   last   saw   Mr.  Macrum  he  was  a   patriotic   and  loyal   American.      In    regard   to  Blake'-,   so-called   A'olunteeis.  they  are, like Mr. Blake, mostly  burghers, who would have  been   obliged  to fight anyway.    Mr. Macrum told  me theie  were  5000  Americans in  tlio TransAaal, most of whom  the  United States was glad to  get  rid  of."    Pretoria, Cannon  Farmer added, was provisioned for two years.  5000; neutral Dutch, 5000; Cape  Colony D-jtoh, SOOO; total 04,000.  Regarding the Boers ability to hold  out, the World's informant siiid:  "There is not the least doubt of  their endurance and resistance for  months to come.

It  Canadian   Pacific  puny, which controls the Associated  Press in Canada, refrains from sending out all such for fear the people  ^should accuse it of meddling in  politics. This 'i~> the explanation  which is set np as an excuse for  keeping the papers of tho Dominion  bnt of the news which is news, and  which interests the people of the  country in A_hic.lt the papers aro  published. While it might not bo  advisable for the papers of-Canad.v  to discard tho Associated Pro->s  service altogether, the time his  certainly ariivod for the press of  tho Dominion to make some effort  to secure in their news service tho  important happenings in their own  country. The Canadian Press Association could not be bettor employed on Thursday and Fiidny  than in ascertaining how this object could bo attained.  THE   PINK   PILL   SENATOR.  Strength, of the Boer Army.

In the  course  of  his  tour round  ,��� the world  two  or  three' years ago  j Mr. Samuel L. demons visited 'Pre-,  ' -toriu.    As a military man he natur  ally  improved   the opportunity  in  his "More  Tramps  Abroad", to  air  his   views   on   the   subject  which  ') then,  as   now,  filled   the  air.    He  took     tho     precaution,    however,  ,X:      which  some  other military critics  might emulate with advantage, to  go into  some detail, to  explain his  right to spealc'with authority,    lie  said: "I have soon active  service in  the Held, and it was in  the actualities   of   war  that  I   acquired  my  training and my right to speak.    I  ,���       served two weeks in the beginning  of    the    civil    war,   and    during  all that time   commanded   a   battery of infantry composed of twelve  men.    General Grant knew the liis-  tdry of  my  campaign,  for  I  told  him.    I also told him the  principle  upon  which  I  had   conducted   it;  which was  to  tire  the  enemy.    I  '"*���  tired   out   and   disqualified  many  battalions, yet never had a casualty  myself  nor lost  a   man.    General  Grant  was   not  given  to   compli-  jnciits, yet he said frankly   that  if  I   had  conducted  the   whole   war  much bloodshed  Avould   have  been  spared, and   that  what   the  army  might have  lost through   the   inspiring result   of   collision   in   the  held would have  been amply made  up by the'liberalizing  influences of  '        travel.    Kurther indorsement  does  not seem to me to be necessary."  Notwithstanding his pre-eminence in the science,of war,,Mr.  demons discusses South African  affairs with as much sense as  though he were only an ordinary,  every-day -peraon. ��� '"If," he declared, "pluck were the only thing  'essential to battle winning, tho  English would lose no battles. Jiufc  discretion as well as pluck is necessary when one lights Boerti and  red Indians. Jn South Africa the  1-iiton Inus always insisted upon  standing - bravely up unsheltered  before the hidden Boer aud taking  the result."  In the pro-sent- war up to the  other day .Boor and Britisher have  each followed hi_> tiwn precedents.  In the early engagements the British officers wore even accommo  dating enough to label themselves  for the benefit of Boer sharpshooters. With this mode of fighting, every Biitish soldier is a target  for a Boer with a rock as a shelter  and rifle-i'est, and faking the casualty lists of both side? at Laiug's  Nok and Krugersdoip, Mr. Clemens,  by a simple mathematical calculation, reached the conclusion that  ~ tiie advai-tages"werc asBO to "1 in  favor of the Boer.  There is more than a, nest in Mr,  demons' figures, which wete not  intended to be "either complimentary to the Boer or uncomplimentary to the British soldier. A good  marksman with a modern rifle and  a bellful of cartiidgss, wholly hidden from sight and absolutely protected, could easily pick off a scoie  or two of men advancing on him  over half a mile of level ground be-  foie ho could be put out of action.  The British generals appear now to  have learned the lesson that to send  Biitish soldiers to kill Boers behind  rocks is simply to throw them  away.  With bows and arrows Leonidas  and his handful of Spartans'held  the'' pass against the Hordes of  Xerxes. Substitute Mausers "and  Maxims for bows and arrows, and  you have the problem before general Roberts. Xo such problem  ever coi-frontedAlexanderor Ca-.sar,  or Napoleon or Wellington. If  Ladysmith and Mafeking ami Kimberley were relieved, or could hold  out indefinitely, Mr. Clemens' tactics  would perhaps be tho proper thing.  But we cannot start to tiro out the  Boers without sacrificing the bc-  icague.ed towns. There's the rub,  though this difficulty grimly prom  *s:_  ises to settle itself before Jong  key to the riddle is not found.  THE   POET   LAUREATE,  if a  As a rule the rCnglish demand  the worth of their money, and i,hey  are very unhappy until thoy get it.  There is no more impressive specta  cle in the world than the  Britisher  who has arrived at  a realization of  robbery.    The fall  of  the Roman  Empire or the eruption of Vesuvius  is a dime show in  comparison with  it.    When  this  Britisher   suspects  extortion he can rise to a  point  of  grandeur; he storms  like a brigade  of   heroes,   and  the  neighborhood  quakes; but when he has  to  admit  defeat he is as a monarch dethroned.  In many respects he is  the  biggest national figure, and he  naturally wants big things���big diuners,  big functions, big navies,bigarmies,  big  victories, big  poems, for  after  all is said aiid  done a  really great  poem   that  celebrates a historical  event is about  tho  greatest thing  that mankind can offer   to  immortality; it is the  greatest greatness  built on a great  deed.    IIow many  today would   recall  the  charge  of  the   Light  Brigade���'magnificently  heroic its it was���if Tennyson  had  not   Avritten   his   undying    lines?  Tho British  nation  has  not retrograded; the British people are not  less brave or less noble; they  have  done some wonderful  things  since  tho Six Hundred stormed the  hills  at Balaklava.  In  the line  of   leadership, England instituted  the office  of  poet  laureate.    It  was  an evolution  of  the   court   singer.     At   first   this  gentleman received the  munificent  sum of   twenty-five dollars a year.  Then Chaucer held the post for  an  allowance  of  wine���judging   from  his spelling'he  must have  written  his  poems  after  absorbing  his income���and then, as tiie office went  on, the pay was  increased  to five  hundred   dollars  a   year   and   an  annual tierce of Canary wino  from  the  royal  cellars.    However  large  or small this may be, it is quite certain that 'Mr.  Alfred Austin, who  was put into the place  because  he  was a good Tory, is not earning his  salary.      It may  be because it is  not  the  same  kind   of  wine that  Tennyson drank.      Thoy may have  changed  the   cask  on him,   giving  him  tin  inferior   article.   At   any  rate, the British tax payers  do not  appear to  be getting the  worth of  their money. , It does  not seem  to  be   exactly   light   that    a   young-  gen t-oman from India���one Kipling  ��� Las to do al! the heroic versifying  for the nation  without a salary, or  even a glass of the .stimulant.    Yet  that is the  fact,     lie  is   wiiting  more  than his share of the English  poctt y that gains the world'.sattention,    ft is  true  his verses do not  wear court drc-,-., but as songs that  delight the people's souls and exalt  tho people's   pride they' have undoubtedly succeeded.  This is not all. Not only does  Mr. Kipling get no pay for this service, but where money is" given for  his pattiotie work he turns it over  to patriotic uses. For instance,  when he wiote those swinging  versos about the private soldiers,  calling on tins people to support  their families while they were fighting for the flag, the thousand and  odd dollars which the papers paid  him were at once turned over to  those for whom he plead, audthen^  other dollarsT followed swiftlyTrbm  the public until they have passed  the hundred thousand mark.  it docs not seem exactly right  for poet Austin to be failing, in his  clYoRs and drawing the wine and  the stipend while poet Kipling i.s  doiiig the real work. Still, the people do not complain, and as poet  Kipling is not in want of tho nece.,-  sitie* of life, and as his copyrights  are yielding more than a prime  ministei 's salary, it is quite certain  that he will not complain either.  Of couisc there are those who  would like 'to see him the poet  laureate���but     fancy      Mulvaney  would be comforts.    Men are born  with certain gifts; that  is, some of  them, and when the natureof aman's  brain is  such  that  he takes more  delight   in    accumulating    money  than   Milton   ever   enjoyed   when  writing "Paradise Lost," why such  a   man,   set   down   in  a   country  where other men have a greater or  less amount of money, will transfer  a  large  proportion  of  what   they  have in their pockets to his own  pocket, and he cannot comprehend  why men are ever bothered about  money matters.      With   Mr.  Carnegie  everything   was   propitious.  He  understood  a certain  business  which was simply in its  infancy in  this country.    He  engaged in that  business at a time when the demand  i'or what he could make  outran the  supply, which  enabled him  to increase his  works and bring to his  aid new facilities,  until  he  practically had a monopoly.    He  worked  the  Republican party to  secure a  tariff, on which lie proceeded until  he readied a point where the tariff  was inducing other  people to imitate   his    work.       And    just    at  thafetime his establishment turned  out a great many hundred thousand  dollars' worth of defective armor for  battleships.      He   went    down  to  Washington and had that adjusted,  and though  we,  of   course,  know  nothing of the terms, it is a singular  coincidence that immediately thereafter he began to decry the tariff as  absolutely unnecessary for the development of American industries.  That is, from the first he possessed  that   faculty   wliich   his   brother  Scotchmen call canny.    Through all  his  earlier  years   he  pursued the  wood rat's tactics  until he  had  so  many old nails and screws and bolts  and nuts heaped up that  they  began to be a burden to him      Then  he shook off his rat disposition and  became a philanthropist,  and  now  he never makes a killing of a million  dollars that he does  not. pay his  regular  tithing by establishing  a  library, or building  a hospital,  or  some other good Avork.    It is a race  with him now whether 'ho ���will die  before he administers on his estate  or not, and, looking  back  over his  career, no wonder he says poverty  is a good basis upon wliich to begin  life.

The demand'^fOT the product is  known, and the cost of production  can be calculated. The volume of  business and the profits obtainable  depend upon the ability and energy  of the management. If unsatisfactory, the management can be  changed with possibly beneficial results. But a mine either exists or  it does not. If the ore is not there  no reform in the office personnel can  save the investor's money.  Manifestly then there should be  ore in sight sufficient to warrant  the proposed expenditure for realizing upon it, before a company could  legitimately claim to be more than  a development concern. The distinction is real and important, and  considering that mining ventures  are habitually thrust upon an unsuspecting public by promoters who  either intend to swindle their victims, or else are so ignorant of mining that they do not realize the absurdity of their claims, it Avould  seem proper in the interests^of all  that laws should be enacted prohibiting the issuance of mining  stock, except for development purposes, when there was not ,pre in  Complete Hlectrlc Equipments for Bllectric Power TransmlBBlon and Lighting for  Mines, Towns Electric Fixtures, Lamps, Bolls, Telephones.

Mr. Carnegie observe-, that poverty is a good basis upon which to  begin life. It is for the wood Tab  who has thc'm.turolacquisitiveness  to steal small potatoes, spoons, rusty  nails or anything else that he can  pick up and to hoard them on the  principle apparently that they may  be of service to him after awhile.  It is all well enough for the eagle  or the hawk or the buy/z-ird to be  hatched without capital; it is a lifc-  Llc tough on the dove and the lark,  especially for the latter chap, because its disposition is to sing when  the sun shines, to get up with the  dawn and to mount and hail the  sun; to get a breakfast off a worm  and then sing for joy, because there  is that much done, without tiny  care for the winter that may come  on, or for the cold nights, when  downy   quilts   and   feather    beds  CHINESE   SECRET   SOCIETIES.  ' The.'growth; of the Boxer anti-  foreign movement in China, already  reported in the recent PeMn cable  dispatcher, indicates that up to  the present time foreign-influence  in China i had done but little to relieve theT coumtry of its lawless  secret societies.' These associations  are apparently maintaining their  power and wielding an influence  which to the mind of the ordinary  Caucasion is inexplicable.  Secret societies have been factors  in the internal life of China throughout modern history- Arising in  different centers of disaffection, the  organizations inoreaso and ramify  until, as in-the case of the "Kolao  llui,'' which two years ago number-,  ed more than 1,000,000 members,  they become terrors even to the  mandarin class. The'"Boxers," like  the '-White Lily Association," the  "Yellow Caps." "The Society of  Heaven, lilarth and Man," the "liung  league" aud the "'Kolao Ilni," exert  an influence too poweifnl for the  governing class'to antagonize with  impunity. In the case of'almost all  these societies the aims of the  founders are alleged to be philan-  _t]iropic^_ Some of the organizations  ���the least troublesome ���are partly  or very largely religious in character. The others are political, and  the opposition to foreigners, foreign  influence and innovations''is one of  their cardinal principles.  "Chiriji, with its vast stretches of  untra'vcled country and its inaccessible intoiior communities, affords  exceptional opportunities for such  societies. < Elaborately concealed  meeting places tire -elected, and  here the prospective members are  initiated with a careful observance  of rites. The aims alleged are almost always beneficent. One secret  society whose place of assembly  was discovered, had the Chinese  equivalents for "Kaith" and "llight-  eousncsb" carved above its temple  doors, but the purposes of tho conspirators are none the less lawless.  Murder, especially if the victim is a  foreigner, can be undertaken without any violation of the order's  philanthropic tends. Accumulating' au immense number of members  throughout various provinces, these  societies, by a system of haphazard  but effective organization, not infrequently attain a remarkable  power. There are instances of the  seizure of influential householders  and their forcible initiation into a  secret society in order to secure the  influence of their membership.  There have been other instances in  which one or the other of the  societies has grown so strong that  even the wi its and other orders of  the government officials could not  be unforced without the consent of  the society's members.  That the Boxer society may have  been able to exert a considerable  influence infringing about a change  in the succession to the dynasty is  by no means --improbable. The  sworn object of several of the  societies a few years ago was even  more ambitious, and had in view  the overturning .of the dynasty, in  order, as the .oath.of the members  affirmed, that the land might be  purified of.foreigners and existing  rulers, and "happiness have a place  to which to return."  RECKLESS MINING INVESTMENTS  Canadian-Mining; Review.  A direct result of the widespread  activity in all branches of business  during the past year has been to increase investments in mining properties, and Canada has enjoyed her  fair share of the improved conditions.    Many new  prospects  have  been  opened, up,  companies   haye  been   formed,   and'mills   erected.  Such  activity  has not been   witnessed  in a decade, and there has  never  been  a better   opportunity  presented for  establishing   a . permanently productive  gold mining  industry.    In tho face of this it may  seem ungracious to play the part of  a  pessimistic   critic, but one  fact  stands out so prominently that attention must be called to1 it; lest we  fail to profit as we should by the  present boom.     There' is nothing  more   hurtful   to   the   growth   of  legitimate  mining operations than  the reckless investilients made during   a   period   of   inflated   pi ices.  These occur as a -.orb of side issue in  connection with the"larger commercial movement of the time, and are  subject to the vicissitudes of trade  and of the stock market.    So far as  iron and copper are concerned this  close relationship is inevitable, but  tho_produetion__or_gold_should_not  be influenced by the status of ordinary iudusti ial enterprise.

Investments in gold mines should be attractive at all times, and but for  foolish ventures the growth of this  branch of mining would be continuous.  There is a large portion of central  Canada, lying mostly in Ontario,  "which can never hope to support  any considerable population unless  its mines become productive; The  whole Dominion is interested in  this result, for the existence of a  thousand miles of unproductive  territory midway between the east  and the west means that the lines  of communication through it are  charged with expenses which must  bo wholly borne by the population  on either side, and this is a permanent--disability of a rather serious  -.orb. Throughout this region are  occurrences of- gold and,, copper,  ���which have constituted the basis  for many mining companies, most  of which in the past have come to  grief, and the question arises  whether the new crop of companies  has been sown with wiser judgment  than in the past. In so iar as these  new enterprises are frankly engaged in development, work, we have  nothing but praise and encouragement to offer. Development, thorough, patient, prudent development, is needed above all things.  But wre have only ccii-_urc for those  who blossom out with crisp stock  and brilliant prospectuses as full-  fledged mining companies, in advance of proper preliminary safeguards in the form of exhaustive  development work.

The result would probably be to turn most of our 'mining  corporations into development companies, but this would be a distinct  gain. If men wish to take chances,  let them do so, but with a full  knowledge of the risk. Legitimate  mining is not risky. The element  of uncertainty is less than iu any  other form of en terprise.  A properly developed mine should  have ore reserves sufficient to constitute a basis for operations for  years ahead. It should at least  have enough in sight so that the  company may "come out even."  And let it be understood that "ore  in sight," means ore of which three  sides aro visible, so that accurate  measurements of quantity and estimates of value may be made.  In this sense the developed gold  mines of Ontario may be counted on  the lingers of one's hand. In view  of this, and the reckless speculation  in so-called mining shares, the need  of protective legislation is plain. 11  would beca step forward in the development of a permanent and profitable mining industry.

An initial shipment of ore is to  be made this week from the Golden  Crowu property near Greenwood, in  which local parties are interested.  .There is 1S00 tons of ore on the  dump at the mine, and shipments  are to be made regularly.  The forthcoming session of the  supreme court which opens in Nelson on Tuesday., nexb promises to  be unusually lengthy. The docket  now comprises some IS cases, several of which will be protracted.  The officiating judge is only slated  to remain iu Nelson a week, and it  is generally agreed that he will be  compelled to return to hear those  actions which cannot be concluded  during the regular sitting.  A. F. Procter, C. P. R. construction engineer, states that he observed half a dozen fine wild swans  flying near his camp ab Nino-mile  point yesterday morning. Such an  incident is rare during February.  Yesterday's snowfall was a source  of inconvenience on the Nelson k  Fort Sheppard road. The oveniug  train was eompe.lled to stop three  times between Yntir and the city  to permit of the road being cleared.  In each case a few minutes' work  .enabled the train to proceed.  Captain Sherwood of the Royal  Engineers is on a visit to his brother, A. R. Sherwood of this city.   -  There are no new developments  in regard to the Balfour extension.  J. H.

He says East Kootenay has  largo mines, flourishing towns, unequalled sc.ener,\.. but not a single  dentist.  Contractor Stewart says no time  checks will be issued in building  the Balfour extension ; that every  dollar due for wages will be paid in  cash.  The Nelson Coke & Gas Company  management claim they can put in  gas engines that are superior to  electric motors for steady power;  and that the cost of operating  them is less per horse power. The  people of Nelson should be willing  to give the local enterprise a fair  trial before compelling the city to  give the Bonuington Falls power  people an entrance.  James Murray, C. P. R. road-  master for the Pacific division, is in  the city enroute to Greenwood and  Boundary points.
