The Republican party, Avhich a few days* ago  Avas   A'aiuly, striving   to   hold   its.  members in   their seatb upon the  floor    of    the   house,   and   Avhbh  seemed almost poA\-erless, is tonight  in the -.addle strong aud vigorous,  and carrying  things Avith  a  high  hand..    The poAverlessness of   the  Republicans   of   two days ago   is  more than equalled by the ��� apparent helplessness of tho  Democrats  of today.

McMillan k Allen,who are packing the ore down from the Arlington, have four carloads rawhided  down to the "'main bridge o*ver  Springer creek. They are using  the sleighs from-there to the depot  at Slocan City.'" They report the  Arlington to be in fine shape, Avith  an abundance of ore in sight. Were  the snow deeper a carload of ore  per clay could be handled from the  mine. The grade of 'the .mineral  maintains its high values as demonstrated in former shipments. . More  men haA*e lately been added to the  force.  Forty tons of ore Avas sent out by  the Rambler last Aveek. On February 1st another dividend of one  cent per share AA'ill be paid, notice  of Avhich has already been served.  The chances' are vet y faA'orable for  similar treatment on 'March 1st.  The force Avas increased slightly-  last Aveek.        ,  The Bosun was among the shippers last Aveek, sending out a carload of its rich product.

DEBATE IN THE COMMONS  Attracts Little Attention:  Loxnox, January 31.���There Avas  aii utter lack of interest in the debate today in tho house of commons. At no time Avas the house  a\ ell filled. The speeches Avere  academic, travelling in deep worn  ruts, aud did not touch upon tho  future in which alone tho public is  so much interested. The only  sign of animation during the  whole session, Avas Avhen sir  Sir Robert Threshie Reid attacked  the South African committee,  draAving forth cries from the Irish  members of "Publish the Hawksley  letters." Mr. A. J. . Balfotr, replying to the suggestion of sir John  Henry KeunaAvay, ConservatiA*e  member for the HoritOn diA-ision of  Devonshire, said he regretted that  it AA'ould be contrary to precedent  to curtail the debate as the amendment Avas a A'ote of censure, upon  Avhich the fate of the govenment  depended.  Sir Robert Threshie Reid, Liberal  member for Dumfriesj  bitterly arraigned the government's "recklessness and duplicity," which  he  said  aroused the first misunderstanding  with tho Boers, Avhich fostered and  stimulated by the " Avickednes and  folly of a feAV men,'.' resulted in the  Avar.        Amidst   opposition cheers  and ministerial mumors, sir Robert  declared   that,  having  regard  for  the general discredit attaching to  Great   Britain    in   the   minds   of  foreigners by the events connected  with the Jameson raid, it was the  duty of the government to take up  tho broken thread and  pursue the  inquiry to its final end.    The parliamentary  committee of inquiry,  he further asserted, fwas a scandal  and  a dishonor to  the house, and  there     Avas     a     suspicion      that  the     raid    was     organized    Avith  the complicity of Mr. Chamberlain.  William    St.    John    Broderick,  under secretary of foreign  affairs,  closed the day's debate.    He traA--.  ersed generally the indictments  of.  the opposition, which he characterized a& immoral at such a* time as  tho present.     No  Conservative, he  added,   defended   the   raid,   from j  Avhich the government had suffered j  more than anybody, because Avhen  the raid had beeu precipitated, president Kruger had "almost reached  the end of his tether AA'ith his* OAvn  burghers, on account of his  treatment of the Uitlanders.   The house  then adjourned.  London, February 1.*���Spencer  Wilkinson, in the Morning Post,  describing tho military situation,  .takes ib for granted that general  Buller intends to make another  attempt to relieve Ladysmith. lie  seizes the occasion to express the  greatest admiration for the dauntless spirit of the British army, and  a regret that the main thing is  lacking, namely proper leadership.  He says: "The Avhole manhood of  the nation is moved by the same  spirit that stirs the troops ou the  Tugela. Cannot; the government  pluck up heart to lead like men, a  nation ; _to_ drop the���past-and to  plan on a proper scale for the arming of the empire for whatever  struggle may be in store."  Loxnox, January 31.���The Avar  office hati issued an additional casualty list of the battle of Spion Kop,  January 24th, and of the engagements at Venters Spruit, January  17th and 30th. The additional list  numbers 139 men killed, 391 wounded, and 05 missing, a total of 593.  With the 174 additional casualties  given for the fighting at Venters  Spruit, the total loss since the beginning of the Avar is placed at 9058  men.  BkriJx, January 31.���The German papers print long reports- of  the proceedings in the 'British parliament, but for the most part  Avithout comment. The Roersen  Courier, however says: " Tho attempt of the speech from the  throne to .saddle the Avar upon the  Boers Avillnot deceive anybody outside of England."'  perial goA'ernment to avoid a rupture until further reinforcements  had arrived. Five thousand;.-'seven  hundred men were ordered" from  India. The correspondence -sIioaa's  that sir William Penn Symons  thought 4000 men would bo enough  to secure the integrity of Natal,  and this view was apparently concurred iu by tho Natal authorities.  SPION KOP'S HEAV? LOSSES  They Were Forty per Cent  Loxnox,  February 1.���The supplemental lists fill  two columns in  nonpareil type in the morning papers,   making   1300 reported thus  far for general Buller's operations  north of the   Tugela.

Fully 5000 colonial Dutchmen haA'e joined the enemy. The  Boers, hoAvever, believed that this  number would be multiplied tenfold. Consequently the Afrikander  bund is now execrated at Pretoria  and Bloemfontein.  London, February 1.���A despatch  to the Times from Pietermaritz;-  burg,- dated Sunday -last;���says :  " Colonel Thorneycroft had a nar-  i'oav escape last Aveek. He went to  meet a Boer flag of truce Avhich  asked a parley, but having become  suspicious lie told the Boer commandant that he Avould not parley.  Both retired, and the Boers fired a  volley, the colonel only escaping in  consequence of the bad shooting."  London, February 1.- -Winston  Churchill, in a further despatch to  the Morning Post. Avhich describes  tho crossing of the Tugela says:  " The army is exasperated, not defeated. General Buller "will persevere, and all Avill conic right in  the end."  TO DREDGE KETTLE RIVER  As a Mining Venture.  Guano Forks, January 31.  -Col  onel Johnson of San Francisco, avIio  has been engaged in hydraulic mining on the Snake riyer in Idaho, i.s  here to investigate the possibilities  of work of a similar character in  the main Kettle river, in the vicinity of Grand Forks. This is his  second visit to the Boundary country. Colonel Johnson authorized  the statement that he Avould organize a company for the purpose  of extracting gold from the Kettle  river by means of the patent dredge;  now in successful use in Idaho. He  predicted that the grn/vel beds and  sand bars would yield at least from  Transvaal services are due to their  rashly exposing themselves, but  they have now adopted the tactics  required by the topography of the  land. Recently German, Dutch  and Scandinavian A*olunteers were  merged in Boer regiments so that  such losses in future Avill be impossible."  SULLIVAN GOT THE BULLET  FORESTERS   INSTALLATION  How They Blundered.  London, February I.���A blue  book has just beeu published containing a quantity of correspondence relating to the defence of  Natal. It contains urgent letters  and telegrams from the Natal government, from dates as early as  May last, up to the outbreak of hostilities, askingfor reinforcements. On  August 3rd, Mr, Chamberlain  Avired: "Arrangements to send 2000  troops are in progress." The Natal  ministry greAv more alarmed, and  on September Otli implored the Im-  Short Stories From Spion Kop.  Loxnox, February I.���Accounts  of the battle of Spion Kop continue  to filter in. All testify to the terrible Boer fire. Several e.-timato  that the total losses of general Buller's turning movement will amount  approximately to 1500, Whan the  reinforcements arrived the troops  were much cramped ou the top of  Spion Kop. Preparations Avere  made below to secure the position.  Guns Avere on the Avay, and engineers had beeu ordered up to  strengthen the entrenchments.  Colonel Thorneycroft Avas not  aAA'ure of this Avhen he ordered the  retirement, and he actually met the  artillery coming up.  General Woodgate Avas Avounded  about tAvo o'clock in the afternoon.  Even then he protested that he  Avas all right, and had to be held  down  on tho stretcher.  15 to 25 cents to the yard. This,  he added, Avould realize a handsome'  profit, after deducting all expenses.  The first dredge, he also intimated,  Avould be in operation Avithin three  months. ���_-,'-        ; :  The bed of Kettle  riverhas long  been known to carry flakey gold.  In   low  water miners,   using   the  most primitive, methods, haAre made  fairly good  wages.    This "has also  been their experience in the graA'el  benches   situated along the river  bank.'  It is well known that colors  can   be obtained from the gravel:  taken from   the streets of Grand  Forks' by panning.   The, gold do.  posits are not confined to the lower  end of the valley.   Placer mining  is still carried on every, summer on  Fourth of July creek, less than five  miles from the  city, Avhile further  west,   from  Rock   and   Boundary  creeks and other tributaries of the  Kettle river millions of dollars haA'e  been  yielded to the ndventureous  argonauts in the early- sixties.. The  decision of ��� colonel Johnson', to enr  gage in hydraulic   operations has  created great enthusiasm here.  ,  Sweden and Norway's Difficulties.  Stockholm, January 31.���Premier  Eric Gustav Boutrom  is distinctly  hopeful   that   the   differences   between   Sweden  and  Norway   will  soon be dispelled.   In an interview  witlrthe correspondent of the Associated Press  today, he' said   he  was fully convinced that the worst  Avas over, and that the Norwegians,  both the politieaus and the people,  weie beginning to realize that fcheir  demands   could   not   be granted if  the   union   was   to   be   maintained-.     He     knew     from     personal  experience    Avhile     travelling     in  Norway, that the Norwegians entertain  the friendliest feeling for  Sweden, and he _was positive, if a  political hothead should in the future propose anything ��� tending to-  Avards the dissolution jof the union,  a majority of the Norwegians Avould  oppose him.    Sweden,  the premier  added, Avas quite  Avilling  to meet  her partner half   AA-ay,  and  had a  treaty offered to settle the question  of a foreign minister on equal terms.  Regarding   the     alleged    Russian  spies,  reported   to have been  seen  about  Sweedish   fortification,   tho  premier declared   the government  had   thoroughly   investigated   the  matter, and found that the supposed spies -were-only- Russian-Avork  men.   Therefore there was no cause  for alarm.  Followed by a Banquet.  ���  The Nolson members of tho Canadian  Order  of   Foresters  held  a  pleasant reunion last  night.

Mr. Lodge said he preferred  accepting Dewey's word to that of  Aguinaldo and he Avas satisfied that  the American people Avould also.  Senator PettigieAV declared that  admiral Dewey had lccogni/.ed the  Filipino republic, and although afforded an opportunity heretofore,  to deny Aguinaldo's statements  had not done so. Mr. Hawlcy of  Connecticut, denounced Mr. Petti-  grew's action as treason, aud after  several senators had rebuked Mr.  Pettrgrew, the matter was dropped.  An Unfortunate Change.

The mystery of the LaBau robbery Avas solved yesterday in the  most surprising manner Avhen chief  Jarvis discovered that the burglars  had actually boon iu his hands for  a week, and that one of them carried between his shoulders a bullet  from Dr. LaBau's gun.  The two prisoners, Sullivan and  Gannon, Avere arrested on Saturday  last and charged with burglary.  When Dr. LaBau's  premises were  searched   by the  police   after  the  .���  burglary a hat Avas  found  bearing  the name of Kelly, a tough citizen  who had recently been discharged  from the provincial jail. The two  prisoners had been ?.een with Kelly  on the previous night, so they were  arrested on suspicion of being implicated AA'ith him in the affair.  The  police  Avent  on  the theory  that Kelly had been  in  the  burglary, and that  he  carried  one  or  more  of the  bullets -fired  by  Dr.  LaBau.    Accordingly they devoted  their   attention   to   searching  for  Kelly   to   no   aA'ail.      Then   chief  Jarvis learned that the hat bearing  Kelly's name originally belonged to  E. T. II. Simpkins, registrar, and on  taking it  to the  court  house' Mr.  Simpkins  identified  the  headgear,  .stating' that he   had  given  it  to  Gannon Avhile the latter Avas, with-  other prisoners front the jail, Avhite-  Avashing   the   court   house.     This  directed the chief's attention back  to tho pair in custody, and he determined to have them stripped and  searched.    This Avas done  and the  tell-tale bullet-wound aa-us promptly  found.    The ball had 'struck  Sulli-  A'au'as he stood endeaA'oring to open  the door leading from Dr. LaBau's  house.     It just touched tho  inside  edge of the left shoulder blade, and  glanced into his back near the spine.  Sullivan   stated   that   ib  had   not  given him any pain Avorth speaking  about.'  The two   men  confessed  to the  crime  and   told   the  Avhole story.

St root .suits for young men, the newest tiling out.  Baker Street,  Nelson, B. C.  J. F. WEIR, Men's Outfitter.  Tin-: steady  groAvth  that Nelson  is milking as  a   Avholesale center is  made  manifest  by the  returns of  the port  of  Nelson   for the month  ,-jusb closed.    January  is always an  ofF month  Avith   importer's,  bub by.  comparing January,   1900, with the  corresponding month of  the previous year, ib Avill  be seen just Avhat  progress avus  made   by Nelson's infant    Avholesale    trade.      For   the  month AA'hich closed  last night the  value of the  duitable imports wis  $ol,2l>5, as against $25,*15S for January, 1S9!),   or., an  increase  of OA'er  one'hundred per cent within twelve  mouths.    This is most encouraging,  bub the increase  in   the imports of  free goods has been even greater.  During January, 1000, the value of  the   free   imports   was  .$1.5,010,   as  against the   insignificanb  total  of  $1<J__S for January,. 1S99.-   Taken altogether the  total  imports show a  gain for   1900   over  1S99  of  over  one hundred and tAventy per cent.  Iu the matter of collections the increase  for the-past, month  maintains-.'about  the  same ��� ratio.    For  January, 1900, the collections  Avere  $15,002.07 as against  $7,848.03..   It  mxy be doubted  if any other  port  iu ..the   Dominion  can  show   such  highly  satisfactory  progress.    Encouraging as the record of the past  year has been ib is safe to say that  nothing   more  than a   commencement has as yet  been  made.    Nelson has the location, and Avholesale  merchants avIio haA'e enterprise sufficient to  make  the most of their  advantages. - They Avill not be content until Nelson is  the recognized  Avholesale  center  of  the Avhole of  southern Kootenay and Yale.  Avhen thoy were arrested, but as the  case developed it Avas shown that  the chief hud. the right men. The  Avork Avhich resulted in the capture  of the burglars AA'as done before the  offence AA'as committed. The men  had been spotted ; Avhen the offence  AA'as committed they AA'ere jailed on  suspicion. There AA'as more hard  work than good luck in their capture.    AFTER CHEAPER TREATMENT  By its action in"deciding  to pay  grand jurors for their services, the  Semlin government has given additional evidence that upon this issue,  as Avith many others, it is in touch  with  and  believes  in  meeting the  wishes of the great "majority of the  people of the province.     For years  other provinces have  been" paying  grand jurors for their services, bub,  despite requests from all sections of  the"*-   province,     it    was      impossible     to     get.     the    old    Bavie-  Ttirner government'to move in the  matter.    The  people  of  Kootenay  are nob now pub to tho same inconvenience Avith respect to jury duty  ���   us they Avere formerly.    It is not so  many years since men Avere brought  from liossl.ind, Kaslo, Ncav Denver  -and other-points-to serve on grand  juries iu Nelson. They Avere allowed  nothing either for their time or travelling expenses.    They protested;  but   their    complaints ' AA'ere   not  heard.     These' hardships    do   nob  now  exist   in   Nelson  or  vicinity;  but   it    may    be    that    in    other  sections   of    the    province' people  arc     still    "i.nt      to     tho  'same  inconvenience.     That such  an .injustice should have been  continued  for so 'many years  goes to shoAv,  that tho common people occupied a-  A'ery .small place in the  estimation  oi" thy   men  avIio wore   entrusted  Avith the administration of  provincial affairs.  Cim_F Jauvis of the city  police  department is  giving  evidence  of  the fact that he is the right man in  the right place.    Hi . capture of the  burglars avIio entered tho residence  of Dr.-LaBau on Saturday morning  may be regarded by some as tt piece  of     luck,     or     an    accident.      Ib  avus     neither.      Tlio     men      arrested   belonged   to   the   criminal  element/.    The chief of police makes  it his business   to keep such men  under surveillance.    "When he was.  informed that Dr. LaBau's residence  had 1 ecu  entered, he immediately  caused the arrest of Sullivan and  Gannou because l.e Icugav that they  belonged to the ciiminal class.   lie  had no direct evidence against them  For the Exchequer Ore.  II. W. Mussen, superintendent  and mining engineer for the Exchequer Gold Mining Company has  submitted a report to the officers  dealing wjth the Exchequer mine,  its development and possibilities.  The report deals Avith the condition  of the property- .up to December  31st, 1S99. Since this date development-has been carried on iu the  easb and west drifts from the 110-  foot leA'el, and superintendent Mussen supplements his report with  the statement that the past month's  Avork has sIioavii that in the east  drift much richer ore has been encountered than in any of the other  Avorkings of the .-property,'.while-in  the west drift the ore maintains  about the same values as that averaged from the shipments to .the  Hall Mines smelter. ���'.-'���...'  After'describing the work done  upon the property, superintendent  .Mussen'deals AA-ith the.value of the  Exchequer ore: The first three  shipments made from the mine  Avere sent to the Hall Mines smelter  in , October and November,  1899, and consisted of iirst  and second cla_,3 ore, sorted from  the matter taken out iu development, Avith some additions from  side.stopes from the shaft Jn cal-,  dilating, the value of this ore the  three shipments must be considered  as one lot. The returns aro ast fol-  Ioavs : " /  October lObh���29,138 pounds';  aebuul gross value, $1163.45; smelter gross A'alue, $1071.11.  November 0th ���34,129 pounds;  actual gross value, $302.24': smelter  gross value, $333.01.  'November 28bo.-28,200 pounds;  actual gross A'alue, $288.49 : smelter  gross value, $205.79.  Total���91,407 dry pounds ; actual  gross A-alue, $1811,18; gross smelter  value, $1670.51.  This gives an average gross value  to the ore of $39.00 per ton. - On  January 9bh a shipment of 11,802  pounds of ore from the stapes above  the 60-foot drift, avus sent to the  same smelter and it yielded returns  of gold, 1.25 ounces per ton, and  silver 2.7 ounces per ton; or a gross  value of $27.32 per ton. The ore in  tho .stopes from Avhich this shipment AA*as mined, AA*as below  the average, both iu thickness  -and~quulity,_so-thab_ib_cannob be  taken to represent the average  vein contents. *   ,        -  Considering the mine from a productive point of A'ieAA', superintendent Mussen says : " Wo aie at present Avorking . under most disadvantageous circumstances. Not  only does the lack of development  force us to use expensive methods  of mining, _ but - the amount of  handling necessary to sort, sack  and transport the ore to the -sinel-  ter, and the high smelting charges,  both direct and indirect, make the  marketing ��� of the orev under  present conditions, both costly and  wasteful. \The importance of the  reference to smelting charges will'  be more fully appreciated if refer-  once is made to the smelter returns  gi\'en. The Hall Mines make a  direct charge for transportation on  their tramway and for smelting of  $9 per ton. They pay, howevor, as  is .usual in customs smelters, only  $19 an ounce for gold, and only 95  per cent of the silver, so that they  thus make au indirect charge,  Avhich, in the case of the first three  shipment-., amounted to $3.13 per  ton, and in the caso of the fourth  shipment to $2.28.  In order to get OA'er these difii-  cultiob Ave Avill have to treat the  Avhole bulk of the vein matter, as  mined, by s-ome suitable procefts on  the ground. With a vioAV to deciding upon a suitable process Ave  have just sent a lob of 1000 pounds  of our aA'crage ore to Mr. I'ellew-  HarA'ey.of Vancouver, lie aviII report to us inthe course of a month  or six Aveeks a�� bo tho adaptability  of the ore to the cyanide process,  with or without preliminary amalgamation. If t his - process proves  satisfactory as to the extraction  and cos,b of application, and Ave do  .not ..yet see. any reason Avhy it  should not, tho A'alue of bhe company's property Avill bo greatly  enhanced.

LIFE   ON   A   BOER   FARM,  A.s no one travels .my distance on  foot in South Africa (���������ays a  writer  in   the  Nottingham ' Express) yon  mu_t   picture   yourself   as   riding  down a dusty road without boundary or definition beyondthc marks  of wheel rat.0, through an open and  unhedged country, without boundary wall or limit, so far as. the eye  can  reach.   Faraway on the horizon may  be seen the purple-brown  outlines of distant hills against the  sky, with  tlieir  flat  tops, and  occasional pyramid-shaped hills.   The  whole plain  before*you  appears to  be   an  unpeopled   desert, -without  signs   of  human   habitation.    The  atmosphere   is marvellously clear,  and experience has told  the rider,  that  the  mountains that  look   so  close at hand must be 20 or 25 miles  distant.    Out there on the plain by  a stony   hillock, there   appears to-  be a little  growth  of dark green  bushes,  and perhaps  a  glistening,  as   of   a     small   .pool     of   water.  As a rule such is  the  first glimpse  of a Boer farm.,   It is  still  four or  live miles off, although.it does;not  appear to be more  than a mile  in  tho clear morning atmosphere of "au  African day. ' Cantering down the  gentle   declivity   one   notices   the  dark green bushes begin  to  separate, and the forms of  these appeal-,  and     presently    a    thatched-roof  building,    surrounded    with    flat-  roofed outhouses, opens  into sight.  Two or three beehive-shaped structures  and   some  rough 'stone-wall  enclosures now become visible.  The  patch of vegetation  fir.-st observed  is' seen  to  be  enclosed by.a dry  stone wall five'feet high. - A* few-  poplar trees seem to separate" from'  the'muss of green,  and  as one approaches still closer a-canvas-coA*-  ered wagon and  a  long lumbering  vehicle, with four large wheels and  an   enormous' pole,  may   be   seen  close beside the  road, and near the  house.  A strange looking erection that  resemble-.- a gallows moio than  anything clse'cutches the eye, causing an Englishman to wonder if  this be put up as a warning, of the  fate, awaiting   him.      Surely   the  Dutchman cannot be so complete in  his domestic economy  as  to keep  his  own gallows!      Yet   it   looks  strangely similar.  There is a strong  iron hook in the centre of the crossbeam, nnd a large stone immediately beneath, on Avhich  the victim  might be made to stand before the  final   suspension.      For   such purposes, however, this  strange scaffold   has  not  been  erected.    It is  only   the   "briepaal,"   or   braying  poles, an absolutely 'necessary adjunct to  every  Boer farm.    Even  now  the,farmer  may. be seen approaching, it  accompanied by two  Kafir or   Hottentot  boys, who a're  dragging after them  loose  heavy-  looking  carpets.     Having already  been   introduced   to   our   host,   a  shake of the hand, and "Good morning,  uncle,"   suffice    on   this   occasion : whilst  we  watch the proceedings and fathom  the mystery  of the erection.  The   heavy-looking   carpets   are  two.bullock hides, which havo-beeu  soaking.in the dam  all night.   All  the hair is  still  on theni, they are  limp and elastic.    The boys (every  colored servant, of any age, is called  a boy)  trim  off   the legs  and the  thinner .portions of the hide at tiie  belly part until it assumes a rough  oval form.    Our Boer farmer then,  comfortably seated on   the heavy  block of stone  (pipe  in  mouth, of  course),   commences .with, a sharp  knife to cut the oval skin into one  long and  continuous ribbon, about  au inch in width, one boy drawing  away the  cut  rheim  or  raw hide  band, whilst  the other continually  turns the hide  round and round to  meet his"-master's  knife.    The hide  thus, decreases in  size,  whilst the  heap of raw hide ribbon becomes  higher  ��� and    higher.      Thus    the  whole     hide     is     cut     up  one long  band  an. inch   wide  about   70   yards   in   length,  next hide is similarly treated,  the   ends   of   botli   are    carefully  knotted together with the diamond  knot, which holds  the tighter  the  more it is pulled.     The  whole   MO  yards   of- raw vhide  strip .is  then  stretched out, and pulled by a boy  at "either  end,- and  looped   up  to  about   a   three yards length  loose end being firmly attached to  the neigh boring strands.    The hide  thus  looped nowreseiubles a  huge  hank,   as  of. knitting  wool  when  l_.eld._oit the two hands of a  person  ready for the housewife to wind up  into a ball for knitting.     One  end"  of   this   hank  is  passed ,over  the  large iron  hook  on  the  top crossbeam of the scaffold-like erection,  whilst the other end is attached by  means  of  raw  hide  ropes   to  the  heavy stone beneath..    The stone is  then    turned , round   and   round,  twisting tho hank of raw hide until  the strain becomes so great that it  can go no further, when' it is let go,  and away spins the stone, gradually  getting closer to the ground till it begins to wind up in theoppositc direction. The boys then wind it up again,  into  and  The  and  and again let it go, and; this .process  keeps on fdr several hbuijs. ���' After  this process* of ''braying,";*:the rawhide rope is j eventually^ cuiTiip into  si.ita.ble lengths, and. ,^l_eni greased  with muttbn fat fbi'ins:; tHe.;lBullock  rheim, or rawliicle rppei'J. wliibh is  the Dutchman's sheeti anc-K6i%- cable,  and attachment in the'ma^y difficulties of his isolated^exis't*Shce.  Accompanied by'one^Boei^ friend,  we find  that   the -beetiivei-lpoking  structu res  noticed- .from afar   a re  the   huts   of   hisr biaek   servants.  There may be seen tHe. black wives  and children of the farm servants���  perhaps "slaves" is a more correct  description.   The flittle black children,   potbellied   and  erect,   with  beady eyes and cannonball-shaped  heads,, with scanty g.row.th of curly  black wool hair' aii I inch [long*, tiro  totally   devoid    of    clothing,   and  scamper back into the  black.inter-  iors of the huts when   the Boer approaches.     The mothers,  scantily  clad with  a  rough petticoat  only,  naked     to     the    waist,    and   devoid of shoes and stockings, maybe  engaged in the few .domestic duties  of a black  man's  hut.    The  more  able-bodied  women   are   engaged,  under the control of "auntie"  (the  housewife"), in aud about the house,  doing   all   the   laborious  women's  work  that a  Dutchwoman  leaves  such "black scum" to perforin.  The stone Avail enclosures are  seen to be the cattle and sheep  kraals,, into which, the herds and  flocks aire driven every night, for  the double purpose of counting,  night and morning, and securing  the manure, which is'a\valuable  marketable commodity.' When  the accumulation, of manure  has reached a . depth of  eighteen inches or two . feet  within the boundary of these kraal  walls, after a wet day it is care:  fully cut into bricks three or four  inches thick, and stacked around on  the kraal walls to dry like peat. It  is then, perhaps, taken away for  forty miles to the nearest township, and sold for fuel. One can  imagine tluit the sheep's wool soon  becomes brown and dirty, but such  is the drying power of the African  sun that though it drys. up'", and  hardens the floor of the kraal into  a solid.mas, no decomposition takes  place, nor, indeed, is it ever as filthy  as are . the majority of English  farmyards.

Handling Our Little Army.  Toronto .Star.  As a people, We have reason to be  proud of the way in which the militia department handled the big job  ;imposed upon it in enrolling, mobilizing, equipping:aud transporting  Canadian Volunteers to South Africa. The whole thing has passed  off so smoothly that nothing but  praise has been bestowed upon "the  ' much-worried and hard-worked  branch of"the government that had  this new and most trying work to  .' perform.  It was both a new and a big duty.  To gather troops for home service  would    have    been   comparatively  easy, for the department necessarily always had in contemplation the  possibility that such a service might  some day be required of it. But  that two or three contingents, of all  arms, should be got together, and  sent off to service in Africa, tvas  not contemplated either by previous heads of the militia department, or by commanding officers.  Yet this work has-been so smoothly done that even the irritation  that is generally thought unavoidable, when big things are put  through in haste, has hero been  lacking.  It may bo proper to add that the  opponents of tho government have  been fair enough to refrain from  fault-finding in regard to this matter. Unless this is an oversight on  their part, which they will hasten  to catch up with  tion isdrawn to  docs them credit,  at a critical time  from even their  habits.    It shows  now that atten-  it, their attitude  for it shows that  they can abstain  most confirmed  also how well a  very difficult work was done.  AMERICAN  AND. .

Lighted by Electricity and  , ed with Hot Air. ,  Heat-  its imt-Hcipal revenues meet the required disbursements, and it has  been ascertained, according to tho  report of tho city collectors, that  there has been a heavy falling olT"  of the city's receipts from licenses,  averaging 1;> per cent iu over  twenty classes.  Discovered at a time when the  city ib confronted by a deficit in ils  general fund, the shortage of license  receipts is an occasion for surprise.  Chicago collects license fees from'  peddlers, owners of vehicles, plumbers, butchers, brewers and theatre  managers, as well as from auctioneers, bakers, boatmen, druggists,  keepers of table d'hote restaurants,  -gunpowder -stores -and���hospitals;  from hackmen, junk dealers, produce vendors, rimers, public scales,'  soap factories, street cars, wagons  and workshops. The diminution in  the revenues from thcse/$300,OOQ in  1890, has been $10,000,' the largest  item of Jailing off being in the case  of the plumbers, although the municipal reformers of Chicago, a loss  numerous class than iu New York,  discern no humorous significance to  this; neither do they offer any explanation of the fact that tho number of licensed express wagons in  the city has decreased 700 compared  with a year ago, notwithstanding  the fact that all retail as well as-  wholesale business has iu Chicago,  as elsewhere, been largely increasing.  Although twenty items of license  revenue in Chicago have decreased during the year, other  items of license revenue have  either remained stationary or  grown larger and the statement of the number of those shows  the extent to which municipal license is" carried on in , Chicago.  That city received last year $82,000  from the license on cigai ettes, $25,-  000 from milk peddlers, .$25,000  from "brokers, $10,000 from secondhand clothing dealers, $19,000 from  paAvnbrokers and $19,000 from milk  dealers iu stores. 'The largest separate item of license receipts in  Chicago is, of course, the one derived from saloons of which, there  are no dearth. The revenue from  this source last year Avas $3,127,000,  a trifling increase over the year before, but the other licenses named  fell off in the aggregate, so thafcde-  Corporation of the City' of Nelson  TENDERS   WANTED.

Prospectors and citizens interested in the mining industry aro  awaiting with considerable interest  the outcome of the action of Sloan  vs. Connelly, wliich involves an  important point". The plaintiff  claims an interest iu the Black  Prince and Dundas No. 2 properties at Slocan City by way of verbal agreement. Section 130 of the  Mineral Act provides that no free  miner shall have an interest in a  claim staked! by another free miner  unless the fact is shown in writing.  In this case ihe plaintiff claims a  part performance of the agreement  and argues that this should be accepted in lieu of writings as would  be the case tinder the statute of  frauds.

Mail Orders Promptly Forwarded  The Blundell-Muir Dispute.  Preliminary steps have beeu taken  in the ease of Blunclell vs. C. A. Muir,  which involves an extremely nice  point and one wliich will be of great  interest to mining men. Dick Blunclell located a claim between the  Athabasca and California properties, whiclf lie named the Speculator. He did not do the second  year's work on the claim, so the defendant A. C. Muir did the assessment and, when the year was up,  re&taked the property and named  it the Daphne. Blunclell recorded  the work done by Muir, and now  seeks to have the location of the  Daphne declared invalid. Galliher  <fc Wilson are for defendant and  Bowes k "Wragge for plaintiff.    '  A Lapsed Miner's Certificate.  Among the cases which will prob-,  ably come before the supreme court  on   the   13th   instant   is   that   of  Grutehfield vs. Harbottle.    The de-,  fendant is the recorded owner of  the May   Day   claim  near Salmo,  formerly   owned   by   one Beadles  who recorded it on May 1st,  1897.  Beadles   allowed  his   free  miner's  certificate to  lapse  in  July,  1897,  but prior to that had, the defence  claim, conveyed the  claim  to Harbottle,   who,   however,    fiiiled   to  record the transfer until April 28th,  189S.     The  plaintiff learned that  Beadles' license had lapsed, located  the Equalizer claim on top  of- the  May  Day on  October  30th,  1897,  and did the assessment work.    The  action is now  taken  to  determine  who owns the claim, and the point  involved is quite new.     Galliher &  Wilson are for plaintiff and Taylor  <fc Ilanningtou for defendant.  ' Moyie's Bifl. Concentrator.  According to_present_indications  the coming season promises to be  an exceptionally lively one for  Moyie.'
