CHAMPERTY BILL DEFEATED  Lawyers Disagreed Upon It.  Victoria, l^ebrnary 8.���[Special  to the Tribune.]���Joseph Martin's  bill to leguji/.e champerty was the  feature of today's session. It was  defeated by 13 for to 23 against,  both sides of the house being represented in the bill's support. The  lawyers were also divided in opinion. Martin, in advocating the bill,  s lid the practice al ready secretly  prevails, aiid had been the means  of lawyers'-- acquiring interests in  .some of the most valuable mining  properties in the province.  Premier Semlin led the opposition  to the bill with characteristic  directness and simplicity of lan-  gimge, declaring that it would encourage shyster, lawyers and claint-  ��� A .iumpers to enter upon litigation  harassing; to honest holders of  claims.  . Helmcken and Pooley, two lawyers'on the opposition side of the  house, strongly opposed legalizing  champerty.. Ex-attorney-general  Eberts favored the scheme, and so  did attorney-general Henderson,  r Avho evidently did not share in  Semlin's distrust of the black sheep  of the profession.  The Sandon relief bill, to alter  the qualification for mayor and  aldermen so as to obviate the''difficulty of'securing these officials, got  its second reading.  Tlio house is having -light sessions,  discussing geueral business,  .Semlin at last has leccived a reply from London, via Ottawa, to  the -/provincial offer of one hundred  men from South Africa, but received it only tonight and says ho  cannot communicate, its contents  before consulting his colleagues.

Is Now Assured.  Grand Forks, February 8.���The  - municipal authorities have received  a cnminnijicaliou from Harry Gager,  ^ at Denver, Colorado, setting at i est  the question of the  location of tho  pyritic   smeltei   in   Grand   Forks,  with a daily capacity of 230 tons.  The  machinery   for   the proposed  .smelter, Mr.  Gager intimated, was  now being  built in Denver.    Construction *A.ork   on   the   buildings  will   begin  next month.    The special merit  claimed for .the  pyritic  system of smelting is that it treats  ote at a considerably reduced figure  as compared with old-time methods.  Mr. Gager is associated  with  _<_-.  T.  Bradford, president"of the Southern Smelter Company, which operates plants  by this system  at Atlanta,   Georgia,   and   Ward,   California.  It is understood that ores can be  treated profitably by this process  for $2.50 per ton. Mr. Gager made  the statement that the Boundary  country, according to present indications, would require at least  twenty smelters within five years.  Pyritic ores aro-thoso carrying an-  excess of sulphur. This i.s the prevailing mineral of the Boundary  country.  The definite location of the second  smelter in Grand Forks fully establishes the contention that this city,  with its abundant watcf supply, is  the natural .smelting point of the  r*'ores of both Republic and tho Boundary. Furthermore tho Gran by  ti inciter, as well as thn B. 0. mine,  contemplate establishing refineries  for tho treatment of matte hero in  the near future.  SWINDLER MILLER CAUCHT  Photographed For Rogue's Gallery.  Ni3 w Yoi. K, February S. ���William  F. Miller, head   of   the   notorious  Franklin ��� Syndicato   in   Brooklyn,  wliich promised to pay.and did .pay  to'many persons 520 per cent on investments, was today brought back  to this city.    He has eluded capture  since last November. HeWas in the  custody of captain Reynolds, formerly   of   the   Brooklyn    detective  bureau, who lost his place through  his failure to prevent Miller from  leaving the city.    Miller Avas arrested in Canada ou clues picked up  a few days ago.    Captain Reynolds  and his prisoner arrived from Canada   at    2:30   o'clock   today,   and  at once Avent to police-headquarters  Avhere  Miller  aviis    introduced . to  chief of police DeA'ery.    Chief DeA'ery was anxious to find  out something  of  Miller's doings   since  he  left the city,' but Miller  positively  declined to say a Avord in  that  direction.    After being measured, according  to   the   Bertillon  system,  and photographed  for the  rogues  gallery, he avus taken  to Brooklyn  to bo placed in the custody of the  Kings county distict attorney.   According to  a  statement made  by  chief of police Dcvery, captain Reynolds found Miller in Montreal.    In  following up clues, he ran  across a  man Avho knew Miller and followed  his movements^and the, latter and  Miller met.  Millei AA'as taken from police  lieadquarter.; to Brooklyn and arraigned before judge Hind in the  county court, and held in $12,500  bail, which he Avas unable to furnish, lie AA-as then transferred to  the Raymond street* jail. Three  indictment-, had been found against  Miller, charging him Avith. grand  larceny iu the first degree, and one  Avith grand larceny in the second  degree.

Scott Gallo-  Avay, president of the board of trade,  he Avill lay before the provincial  authorities the claims of Greenwood  to have the supreme court registry  office located here. Biiefly the  city's claims for the office are: that  it'is the most centrally situated  town in tho Boundary Creek district; that it is the most populous,  and that there aro more practicing  barristers here than in any other  toAvn in the district. Besides the  city AA'ill shortly be connected with  Phoenix by an electric tramway  service, thus enabling Ph.cnix solicitors having business with the registry office to come aud go Avith little  inconvenience, as against a longer  journey to any other point.

London,   February    0.���Spencer  Wilkinson, discussing  general Buller's latest movement in  the Morning  Post, says: "The advantage of  this line of action is that it offers  the   shortest   road to Ladysmith.  The disiuh'antagc is that Avith modern weapons the operation of piercing tho enemy's front is one  of the  utmost difficulty.   At   the   beginning each side can concentrate on  one point of the enemy's lines the  fire of the long portion of its  own  front,   of   all   the   riflemen   along  the  front  of   a: mile and  a   half,-  and of all the guns along a front of  three or four miles. As the assailant,  choosing his point of attack, he can  at the outset gain a  superiority  of  fire against that  point,  but, as  he  advances and pushes  back  part of  the enemy's line, the enemy can  pour on his troops the converging  fire  of   a  great semi-circle,  Avhile  the    assailants     fire     from     this  convex front is   devergent rather  than converged.     If -however, the  assailant can find cover-forhis leading party, he has a converging fire  against the the t\A-o ends of the defending semi-circle, and   he may,  therefore, ��� hope  to   drive   his  opponent back to Aviden  the  gap he  has made, and then  as die pushes  fresh troops into it, and holds the  enemy along the rest of his front, to  roll up either wing of the  defence  This  task,  hard  in any case, is  rendered harder Avhen a river must  first be crossed, for a riA'er between  two armies preA'ents  the. assailant  from engaging the defender along  his Avhole  front,  except with  tho  artillery and, therefore a defender  as soon as  he  recognizes  the  real  point of attack  can  hurry troops  from   both   Avings   to   his   centre.  A liver also limits  the  number  of  troops that au assailant can bring  to bear, for they must all  cross  a  bridge or bridges by defile. General  Buller has made a"good start.     In  order to be able to advance he will  probably have to diivo the Boers  from Doom Kloof, to seperate the  two Boer  Avings  and  then  Avhile  holding one of them to attack and  crush the  other.    That  cannot be  an easy matter, for they can move  troops   faster   than Ave,   aud will  probably   pour   a  coirverging  fire  from the   north   and  Avest  if not I  from  the  uortlnvest and  east on  Vaalkrants..  We hear from Ladysmith that  the Boer heavy baggage has gone  toward the passage. The Boers  are well aware that defeat means  for them the raising of the siege of  Ladysmith, and their retreat from  the district. It is to be hoped that  general Buller will pi ess the attack  and not tire, even if the engagement lasts seA'eral days.  The case resembles that of general Grant, at Fort Donaldson,  when he first realized that it Avas a  question as to Avhich of the two  armies, both tired fighting, could  first renew the attack. But general Buller cannot relieve Ladysmith ~exce~pt by lefeating andUriv-  ing aAA'ay the Boer army and thus  raising the seige. He cannot cut  his way through the Boers and  march on Ladysmith, leaving the  Boers undestroyed on his flank.  That Avould only lead to the loss of  hia army.  Shoit of breaking the Boer resistance he might, however, by a  sufficiently vigorous and prolonged  attack, compel them to call up reinforcements from the investing lines  at Ladysmith, and thus make it  possible for sir George White to  break through the lines and inarch  on Skits Drift. That movement  Avould bo costly. It Avould begin  with tho sacrifice of tho heavy guns  aud Avith a heaA'y loss in the sortie.  There Avould then be great pressure  on the rear guard, heaA'y loss in the  ten-mile march, and further loss in  the attack on the rear of the Boers  at Brakfontein, or Doom Kloof, but  it would be an honorable Avay out  of what had been called the Ladysmith entanglement."  hay apiece.

London, February 8.���In the  house of commons today George  Wyndham, parliamentary secretary  of tho Avar office, answering a question said that 2285 officers and men  of tho British army are missing,  but it was uncertain how many of  them Avere at Pretoria. As to their  protection in case the British bc-  seiged Pretoria, Mr. Wyndham said  the government left that to the.discretion of lord Roberts.  AnsAverihg another, question, Mr.'  Wyndham said .that in., addition to  to the 180,000 troops in ; South  Africa,- recently '''mentioned'--in his  speech, the government had decided  to send .seventeen more battalions  of militia, and 3000 yeomanry, making a total for the militia "of over  20,000 inch, and for. the yeomanry  S000.

The Daily  Chronicle publishes tod-iy a long  disqui'-itjon upon South African  affairs from S. (', Cronweight  Schreiner, Avho advocates peace  overtures   by   Great   Britain.   He  .;' His Position is Desperate,  London;   February   9.^-All ' the  message's 'from  the observers with  general Buller -throw in a phrase  or two about  the strength of tho  Boer positions aud the difficulties  of. the work, but they do not carry  events   beyond   Tuesday   evening.  Their last slender narratives leave  the British advance at Vaalkrant/.,  in the centre of a semi-circle, where  the troops are  exposed to the Boer  artillery 911  both' sides  and in the  centre.   The fighting continued until 9 o'clock Tuesday evening, and  also Avithout doubt continued Wednesday,   as    the    Boers   certainly  AA'ould not leave this Avedge into  their lines unmolested.  It is also inferred that general  Buller, must either continue his ad-  vance or retire. The ^heaviest  fighting appears to haA'e been on  Tuesday. General Buller's 233  casualties are mentioned as having  occurred before Tuesday noon.  Largo lists are consequently expected for the rest of the day. The  casualties already reported bring  the total British losses to. 10,244  killed, Avounded and captured.^.The  disposition-here is rather jto^jiiin-  imixe the'iriiportance bf tlie'figntiiig  in Natalj and to suggest that this is  only an incident auywav, placing  hope upon the expeeted decisive engagements in northern Cape Colony  and upon the invasion of the Free  State by lord Roberts.  At all eA'ents this is the official  view. The public 'does not like  these new waits, and there i.s sharp  anxiety for further ucaa's. In Cape  Colony general Macdonald has had  a skirmish.Avith a thousand Boers  at Koodoorg. This was on Monday.  The Boers have been taking the  offensive against general French,  near Lonsburg, aft Avell as against  general Gatacre in the Stormberg  hills.  Since the  war  has  strained the  resources  of the  military  system,  Englishmen ha\'e been troubled by  the   possibility  that   sea   fighting  might sboAv   naval   defects  Avhich  Avould weaken  the  first line of defence  in   Avhich   the   count.y  has  placed such  complete  trust.    This  apprehension has   suddenly found  expression.    During the last two or  -three days., in-half the newspapers  in  England,  the  government's attention   has     been     specially   directed     to     tho     muzzle-loading  gnus.    Even public men' have been  painfully surpiiscd   to  learn  that  sixteen battleships and eight armored cruisers depend  upon  mu/.zle  loaders,    Tliis 1110.111,1  that smaller  but faster ships, with modern guns  Avould be able to lay one thousand  or tAA'o thousand yards out of tango,  and to disable in   leisurely  fashion  about one-third of the A'essels Avhich  appear  in   the  naval  list  as  first  class.    The admiralty is understood  to be preparing to remedy this defect, and to propose ul&o considerable  additions  that   will   preserve  the present ratio of Great Bii tain's  naval strength to  that  of France  and Germany.  A supplementary army estimate  to March 31st Avas laid pro forma  before the house of commons yesterday, but was not made public.  It is tcported that the call is for  ��20,000,000, which will make the  cost of the Avar up'to that dale  ��30,000,000. The maintenance of  200,000 men at the front, it is estimated, costs between i.8,000,000  and ��10,000,000 per mouth.  HEAVY FIGHTING CONTINUES  But Particulars Are Lacking.  London, February 9.���The Daily  Telegraph has received the folloAving dispatch, dated February 0th,  from Spearman's  Camp'':    "This  is  the second day of the  battle, and  the fighting has been fiercer than it  was yesterday.

Senator Vest,  Avho  recently announced his intention to retire from  politics at the end  of his  present  term, became a resident of Missouri  under peculiar circumstances.     Jn  I8aJ_, after being admitted  to  the  bar, he left Kentucky  on a  Avagon  traiii    for    California.      Jlecoming  snow-bound at  Georgeto\Arn,  Missouri,   he   decided  to  practice  Iiiav  there for the balance of the Aviuter,  and prospered so that  he  did not  resume his journey in   the  spring.  His first court ease AA'as the defense  of a negro slave accused of a capital  offense.     He undertopk the case at  the request of the  slave's  master,  and    remained   in   it   despite  the  threat of a A'igilance  committee to  lynch him for  so  far  disregarding  the    proprieties    as   to   defend   a  "nigger."  Quite a sensational story has been  going the rounds of  a  rebuke  administered to Mrs. Arthur Paget by  Swinburne, the poet.    Lady Paget,  and M. "Bertie"  Stopford,   aa'Iio is  the crack cotillion leader of London,  went to call/on  Swinburne  to ask  him to Avrite  the  masque for  the  forthcoming   charity   benefit over  Avhich Mrs. Paget  has supervision.  The poet received them in  a dirty  dressing-gown,  and   berated  them  .���ind the charity schemes in general  in so A'igorous a manner that Mrs.  Paget   and   Mr.  Stopford ��� made a  hurried   escape   from    the    house.  Theie  seems  to be  a   reaction  in  London   concerning   these charity  entertainments for  the  benefit of  the   orphans  and   Avidows of   tho  soldiers killed in the Transvaal war,  -especially those arranged by Americans.    They .uive boon attacked its  schemes simply to force an entrance  into society.     Not one of the great  South African millionaires has contributed a penny to them.  Camillo Antona Travcrsi, tho  dramatkt and literary historian,  avIio is a leader among tho younger  ���writers of Italy, has' been condemned to eight; year's imprisonment at Bologna for forgery.

When the gco-_e arc found  to be very heavy they aro killed,  aud their craws emptied of the gold  contained therein. A flock of geese  is sometimes worth a good deal of  money, but geese dressed ready for  eating are very cheap, indeed -  from fifteen to twenty cents each.  ^THE  LEASING   OF   MINES,  Butle Mining AVoiId.  A mining exchange says: "Lack  of funds to carry on a mine property often obliges owners to let to  lessees," and adds, "there are many  ad\'antages as Avell as disadvantages  iu this system." That depends. If  owners of a mining property cannot  develop it, and wish to retain ib in-  laet'and can find a party or parties  Avho have tho faith and means to  expend the necessary amount to  make a mine or a failure, the oavu-  er_> can lose nothing by leasing it.  But if they knoAV Avhat the property contains they aie simply foolish  to transfer to others Avhat they can  gain for themselves.  Mines are leased for one of tAvo  reasons. In the first place, oAvncrs  avJio Avibh to lease their mining  property rather than Avork it themselves have little or no faith in their  holding.   Others may haA'e, but it  is seldom such parties haA'e   any  great amount of money to iuA'est in  another's   prospect.      The   lessees  may  "gopher"  about it, get Avhat  they can and leiwe it in Avorse shape  than they found it.    In the second  place,    owners  of   an  extons.A'ely  Avorked mine find a greater accruing interest in leasing to tributors  than   to  Avork it themselves.    Tho  mine  has,   probably,  outlived   its  bonanza days, but has many paying  spots, Avhich lessees find, and out of  which thoy make a little, Avhile the  owners are paid an interest ou the  values extracted.    Lessees are generally  those avIio are pretty Avell  acquainted   Avith  the    locatian  of  these  paying   columns,   shoots  or  spots,  and can make more out of  them i'or-the owners than can the  owners  by    Avorking    them    with  niontlily paid laborers.  Tho  old Whitlach Union died a  lingering  death under the leasing  system.    Over $5,000,000 AA'as taken  from  tho mine, the little town of  Union ville was filled Avith 400 voters  and a goodly number of AA'omen and  children,  and  Helena at  the time  made a very pretty penny by their  trade.    Tho Park  City  lodes  kept  pace Avith the Whitlach.Union, and  died with it and  under the same  system.    In tlieir eases the tributor,  as  a rule, did Avell, .and the  mine  managers gained Avhat they never  ������would  have    gotten    by  Avorking  them themselves.    These  AA'ere old  mines, supposed to be Avorn out aiid  exhausted, and the old miners avIio  had spent years in  their Avorkings,  made a little out of them as lessees.  But each Avorked Avhere he kneAV a  little pay rock had been left.  While    owners   of   Avell-worked  mine.: property   may  get a   little  tribute  money,- at  the  same time  they   see . their  old   prod ucer   of  wealth AA'qbble upon  its  last legs,  and finally fall Avith no hope of regaining its worth.    It has gone the  Avay of exhausted mines.    Owners,  of virgin mining ground face a different  condition  of things.    They  haA'e three propositions to consider  ���Avork tho mine themselves, sell it  to those Avho are able to take it, or  lease ib to partic. a\ho are Avilling  to���develope it.    The first two may  be done, each party taking it1-' own  chance1., the last proposition is quite  a different one.   Tiie owners may  advance  Avhat is  known as  "footage;"  that  is,  give to les-sees   an  amount equal to, say, one-quarter  or one-thiid of Avhat may be agreed  upon  as a'fair contract  price for  sinking a certain distance, or doing  a certain amount of work upou the  claim.     The footage   enables   the  miners without capital to pay, at  least, for their supplies and board,  if nothing else, Avhile the ground is  being*Avorked.    Such arrangements  may.be made,  but unless it is good  property it is alosiug one all round.  Old dumps are frequently leased  to parties avIio Avant to AA'oik them.  Neither party  can  lose  much  by  such disposition of them,  proposition AA'hich is fail  both     Theio^can  be  no  ing," no slighting A\'ork, nor no occasion  for  Avatching.    But   in too  _many_instances, miles'* every__condi__  tion be draAvn in black and Avhite,  tho  leasing  system   produces  disagreements, misunderstandings and  ill-feoling.    lb  amounts   simply to  this:   If the mine be a good one the  OAvners will not lease it; if it be an  exhausted one, old miners will take  it only upon their oavh terms, and  if it be an  undeveloped property  miners care nob to assume all the  cost of development Avork, and but  I'oav OAvners care to share ib Avith  privilege of dropping into a favorite  resort and hobnobbing Avith friends  ���a custom Avhich is dear to eATery  Swiss���must be foregone. The law  is effective for several reasons. The  military exemption tax is small���  it is generally paid���and the ordinary peasant does not like to see his  name publicly printed.  UNDEKQROUND RAILWAYS.  That is a  fly before  "gopher-  In making provision  for an underground   street   railway  system  the construction of Avhich "will cost  $35,000,000   New   York   is   by   no  means a pioneer.   It is but folloAV-  iug the example of other great cities that haA'e demonstrated the Avis-  dom and practicability of this form  of rapid   transit.   Boston  led the  Avay among   American  cities, and  now has underground transit in successful operation.    London has long  had underground  railways,  but as  the system   Avas introduced there  when steam was the only,motive  poAver the  underground lines Avere  unsatisfactory ,> because     of    the  smoke.   Now that   electricity has  replaced steam as the motive poAA'er,  this objection, is entirely overcome  and  London  has  recently gone in  for more underground railways.   In  preparation for the coming exposition  the    local   transit system  of  Paris is  being  radically improved.  Among   other    things   an   under-,  ground system,  now Hearing completion, is  being built  at a.cost of  $.37,000,000.    Before the exposition  of lSQCt in Budapest au underground  road Avas built under the Andrassy  strasse   from    the    heart   of   the  city on  the  Danube  front  to  the  exhibition grounds.    The Andrassy  strasse is a beautiful avenue from  the surface of which the people desired to  exclude street  cars.   The  ambitious  plans  of Vienna  for  a  progressive system of local  transit  provide for underground construction in the  business  center of the  city.      Berlin   has   a Very   small  amount of-underground road at the  present time, but the future plans  for that city call for subAvays in the  central districts.  -Undoubtedly underground roads,  in the crowded sections at least,  are to constitute a feature of the  local transit systems in most of the  larger cities, of': the world in the  near future. Chicago is much in  need of such underground roads or  subways in the downtoAvn district,  and the soil there is well adapted to  their easy construction. If all the  street cars were removed from the  surface in the heart of the city life  Avould be rendeiod safer and much  more pleasant to the dense thiongs  of pedestrians. The, speed of. the  cars Avould be increased, too, and  the annoying interference with  traffic from fires, processions and  tho like Avould be done away AAith.  Subways built primarily for the accomodation of street cars could  aho be made to do service for conduits carrying pipes and Avires,  thus helping to solve the problem  of providing a conduit system that  will render unnecessary the continual tearing up of streets.  CHAIRS (?)  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 arid  cheaper ones still suitable for either dining  ���room or kitchen. There are a few office tilt-  ers in the lot. So you can'tstick us on  chairs, either in design, quantity or price.  m  sion, ship subsidies and other subjects that they believe will be useful in the approaching campaign.  It is part of their purpose to bring  about as much unanimity as possible in the several state conventions   on   these -'''"-subjects',"' leaving ���_  _ ,  each state to deal with ihe silver   until the plague is over.

To punish a man for non-payment of a certain tax by foi bidding  him to enter a' restaurant is a  rather singular act of government,  yet in the canton of Bern such a  laAV is in effect. Every man in  Switzerland must serve iu the Swiss  army if he be physically capable,  and if he be not physically capable  he must pay what is called the"  military exemption tax. In the  canton of Bern a rigidly enforced  law is in effect which prohibits -a  person Avho has not paid this tax  from entering any of the various  sUoons until the tax is paid. This  laAV is called the "wirtshau&verpot."  The government-says that if a man  has money to spend for coffee, beer  or liquor he must also have money  enough Avith which to pay his debt  to the state. At intervals one may  read iu the local official paper the  list of names of those avIio must  stay aAvay from the gardens The  law cannot prohibit a person fiom  obtaining liquor through the intervention or help or a friend, but the  The Next Antarctic Expedition.

Whatever doubts there wore as to the  financial success of the project have  uoav beeu removed, and the money  at tho disposal of the committee is  more than adequate, Mr. L, W.  Longstulf of Wimbledon has given  $25,000, and the government and  many scientific societies have promised liberal aid. - In addition, arrangements have been made for the  cooperation of the German expedition, so that the three years' voyage i*_ likely to result iu the accumulation of very complete in-  foi mation.  distributes   - a     layer     of     from  ten     to     fou rteej-ij, inches    along  stretches    of     thef- beach,    river  banks      and      creeks,     extend ing  all  told   for   miles.'

During   that   time   the*sea  takes advantage and piles in on the  beach its layer  of   ten  or twelve  inches  of Avhite  saiid.

A recent meeting at the house of  prince Konoye, where plans Avere  plans AA'ere said to have been made  to check the progress of Christianity in Japan, has already been reported. The anti-Christian attitude of the department of education also has been 'mentioned.  Prince Konoye, however, on his le-  turn from a trip abroad, has expressed some sentiments which  show that he is ' at least appreciative of the products of Christianity.  The prince affirms that he discovered that when persons in Europe  spoke of "gentlemen" they referred  to a man's moral quilidcations,  rather than to his material condition. A ���'gentleman" Avas a man of  honor who scrupulously fulfilled nil  his   engagements,   and   avIio   avIiq  ���  Ground by the Glacier.

In the summer season the glacier thaAV9 and commences its slow, irresistible grinding toward the sea.

The  prince  thinks that an  immense  reform i.s  needed in this  country, and, Avhile  he disclaims any desire to introduce  Christianity into  Japan, does not  hesitate to say that the  gentleman  ���the man of honor���is  a product  of  Christianity.     The Japan Mail  Avonders why, if this is the impression created by occidental  civilization upon the  Japanese  mind,tho  prince shrinks from achrocating the  planting   of   Christianity   on  this  country's soil.
