PRICE  FIVE CENTS.  B  THE YEAR  LIKELY TO BE  A Very Prosperous One.  Notwithstanding the  suspension  of operations at tho mines in charge  of managing director Hugh Sutherland, the year .1000 will be tho most  prosperous that Kootenay and Yale  have experienced.    Work  is  being  pushed on  many promising properties in the Slocan and Lard can, and  they   will   be  shippers  this  year.  I'.veryone of the old shippers in the  Slocan will  surpass  the  shipments  made in 1899.    The mines at Moyio  and Kimborloy  in   Fast   Kootenay  will   be  worked   as    regular  producers for the   first  time  in  their  history.  .No mine in Nelson district  will remain mi worked   unless  it  is  the Silver King, and its working in  'the'past  has  not  tended  to. give  outsiders any  great  confidence  in  our  mines.     Boundary  this    year  will  begin  its  record    as   a   producer,    and    its"   output . should  offset    any    decrease  by     the     temporary  of    work    at    lloss-  Tho chances arc that  the output of the  mines  at  Rossland even will be greater in the aggregate for the year 1900 than for  the year 1S99.    The  coal .mines at  Fernie will increase  their  output,  and the bullion yield  of  the  gold  mines around Ymir will be double  . that of 1800..'" ������  It is safo to predict, that the  country that is directly tributary,  to Nelson'will make a record during 1900 -that will surprise the  croakers \who have predicted that  the world, niusfc come to a standstill beciiuse their oft-expressed  opinions are not followed by the  men who must work in order to  live.  more   than  o.casionod  suspension  land's mines.  to, be performed in the future, not  only to perform it at the time  specified but at no time to disavow  his liabilities, otherwise commercial  relations would not be on a business  basis. The moment tho contract  was disavowed or broken the right  of action arose. Actual and prospective damages may be claimed as  all must be assessed in the suit, no  further suits being allowed to avoid  multiplicity of actions. Fourthly,  no largo quantities of hay had been  bought near Chewelah, as alleged,  but only one car from a dealer  named Kholt. Moreover Oppenheimer should have provided against  such a contingency in his contract.  Speaking to the question of damages,'-.! r.TaylorcIaiinednotoiily general damages arising from the higher  price of _the hay which had to be  bought to replace that ordered from  Oppenheimer, but also special damages suffered by the loss of profit  wliich otherwise could have been  made. ....-���-���'  Mr. justice Martin reserved judgment.  HOW   PILCHER  SURPRISED  REV. C. W.ROSE'S FAREWELL  INTERESTING  COMMERCIAL  Case Argued.  On the resumption of the pitting  of the supreme court yesterday  morning, Frank Gibbs, manager for  the Nelson branch of Brackman &  Ker again took the bland. W. It.  Bride, bookkeeper for Mr. Uibbs, F.  D. Fortin,1 hay-dealer of Jlossland,  and Iho plaintiff, Mr. Opponheiiner  -were also examined. As slated in  yesterday V. Ti.ii!uxi_, when an out-  lino of the case was given, the case  chiefly turns on Brackman _v. Ivor's'  counter claim for, damages for  breach of contract. The ca=e is  exciting considoiablo interest in  commercial circles in Nelson, and a  brief summary of the chief points  raised by counsel is appended.  Charles   Wilson,   Q.  0.t for   the  plaintiff,   Oppenheimer,  contended  that in the iirst place Brackman  k  Ker   had    fiiofc     accepted   Oppou-  heiinor'f. offer because in tlieir letter  of   acceptance  they "specified that  the shipments should   bo made in a  certain  manner,   which   amounted  ���to thc-imposing oi new conditions.-  Socondly,   that   on Noven.ber  0th,  Brackman   k   Ker   wrote   Oppenheimer extending the time for shipment   -until   November   15th,   and  thereby waiving the breach of eon-  tract,  if any  breach   had   in  fact  been committed ; and  further that  in   accordance    with    that   lcttur  Oppenheimer had placed a car on  the track and offered fo start delivery.     Thiidly, that Brackman &  Ker  wore   premature   in biinging  their action as the six month-,  during wliich the hay was to be delivered   had   not  expired.       Fourthly,  that    Brackman   <fc   Ker    waived  their   rights   under   the    contract  by buying large quantities of  hay  round  Chewelah,   thus  preventing  Oppenheimer from filling  i/he contract. _    *  S. S. Taylor, Q.C.; for Brackman  k Ker contended in reply that that  firm's acceptance of Qppenheimer's  offer was unqualified, and that the  paragraphs following were merely  requests made with the object of  facilitating shipments, but did not  impose fresh .teims or conditions,  and further that in all his letters  Oppenheimer had spoken of it as an  acceptance. Secondly, the letter of  tlio 0th was admitted, but counsel  contended that it was not binding  as it was made after the breach,  without consideration, but merely  as a matter of good gi ace. Moreover Oppenheimer refused to comply with its terms, so if it was a  waiver of llie iirst breach this refusal served to set the waiver aside.  Thirdly, the  action  was not pie-  To His Congregation.  Rev. Charles Rose took formal  leave of the congregation of, the  Baptist church last night, after a  pastorate of fifteen months. Failing health necessitated his withdrawal from the active work of the  ministry and his resignation-.was  announced in; Till. Tribune several  ���week's ago. Last evening the members of the church gathered iq  strong force to bid farewell to the  retiring pastor. .  Robeit Robeitson occupied the  chair, and on the platform with  him were Revs. C. W. Rose, J. Robson of the Methodist church and AV.  Stackhouse of the Rossland Baptist  church. The officer.- and band of  tho Salvation Army were in attendance, and contributed several numbers to the program.  The Rev. J. Robson expressed the  real regret he felt that the congregation was compelled to accept  Mr. Rose's resignation. He trusted  Ihe retiiing pastor would regain his  stiength rapidly and that he might  bo speedily restored to his'beloved  woik. In concluding he remarked  that he hoped Mr. Rose's successor  would receive- a hearty welcome,  and Rev. Mr, Stackhouse contributed a neat speech, in which lie  deplored the illness which had compelled tho retiring pastor to withdraw from a congregation whose  hearts^ and affections 'he had so  thoroughly attached to himself.  A purae containing $100 in  gold  was   then   then  presented  to Mr.  Rose by the Ladies' Aid Society, as  a mark of their esteem' and regard.  In response  Mr. Rose expressed  his warm thanks for the kindly references   made regarding   himself,  and for the tangible evidence of the  congregation's    good    will.       The  memory   of   the   months   he   had  spent in Nelson would bo cherished  _by him as_aniong_ lhe_ happiest__of  of his life, and the members of the  Baptist church would ever have a  warm spot in his  heart.    It  was a  source   of   genuine  ivgret to  him  that failing health rendered it impossible for him to retain his active  connection with'the church, but he  hoped to return at some time in the  near future to return to  the  work.  The   remarks    of    the    various  .speakers   were    punctuated    with  applause, arid at  the conclusion a  general himd&linkiut took place.  Porto Rico Goods Taxed.  Ni_w> YoK.iv,' February  11,-  The  board of classifications of the United  States general appraisers announced  today a decision in the ease testing  tho right of the government to  assess duties on merchandise im-  poi ted from Porto Rico. The board  overrules the protest of importers  who claim that Porto Rico is a part  of the United States and that no  duty could be imposed. The board,  in an opinion by judge Somcrvilie,  holds that while the island is under  military control, tho government  has the right to assess such duties.

A Boer Laager.  Loxnox, .February 7.���The part  taken by tho Canadian and Australian contingents at Sunnyside i.s  thus described by a correspondent  of the Times:  "On  tho day   before  Christmas,  colonel   Pilcher    at   Belmont   got  wind of the assemblage of a considerable   Boer   force   at  a   point  thirty miles away, called Sunnyside  farm, and he determined to try to  take it before the enemy could get  wind of his intentions.    To this end  he secured  every nigger, for some  miles  around, which    proved   his  good sense, as the niggers  are all in  the pay of the Boers,. no matter  how    loyal     they   may    pretend  to. be    to    the    British,   a    fact  which the'British would do well to  take heed of, for it has cost them  pretty dearly already.     On Christmas   eve he   started   out   taking  two   guns   of   the   Royal   Navy  artillery,0 a couple of maxims, all  the Queenslanders and a few hundred Canadians.     Colonel Pitcher's  force   numbered in all about 600  men.    He marched swiftly all night  and got to Sunnyside farm in good  time on Christmas day.   The Boers  had not a ghost of an idea that our  men were near them and were completely beaten at their own game,  the surprise party being complete.  "The enemy   were   found   in   a  laager in a strong position on some  rather steep kopjes, and it was at  once  evident  that they were  expecting strong reinforcements from  surrounding farms.   Colonel Pilcher  at once extended  his force so as  to  try   and  surround the kopjes.  Whilst     this     was      going     on,  Lieutenant Aide, with four Queensland troopers, was sent to the far  left of what was supposed to be the  Boer position.    His orders were to  give notice of any attempt at re-  . treat on the part of the enemy. He  'did his work well. - Getting close  into the kopje/he saw a number of  the enemy blinking off, and at once  challenged them.   As he did so a  dozen   Boers   darted   out   of   the  kopjes,  and   Aide  opened   fire on  them, which caused the Boers to  fire a volley at him. ,Lieutenant  Aide fell from  his horse with two  bullets   in   his   body.     One   went  through the fleshy part of his stomach, entering his body sideways.  The other went into his  thigh.    A  trooper named  MeLeod wras   shot  through  tho  heart and fell dead.  Bothr the    other    troopers    were  wounded.   Trooper Rose caught a  horse  and   hoisted  his   lieutenant  into the saddle and sent him out of  danger.  Meantime the R. II. Battery taking advantage of the fire, opened  ou the enemy. Their guns put a  great fear into the Boers, and a  general bolt set iu. Tho Boers fired  as they cleared, and if our fellows  had been formed up in the style  usual to the British army in action  -Wo_would_have -.suffered���heavily,  but the Queensland bushmeu had  dropped behind cover and soon had  complete possession of the kopjes.  Another trooper named Victor  Jones was shot through the brain  and fourteen others were more or  less badly wounded. The Boers  then surrendered.  We took 40 prisoners and found  about 14 dead Boers on the ground  besides a dozen wounded. They  were all Cape Dutch, no Transvaal-  lers being found in the ranks.. We  secured 10,000 rounds of their ammunition, 300 Martini rifles and  only one Mauser rifle, which was in  the possession of the Boer commandeer.  After destroying all we took, we  moved on anil had a look at some of  the farms nearby, as from some of  the documents found in camp it  was certain that the whole district  was a perfect nest of rebellion.  Quite a little store of arms and ammunition was discovered by this  means and the occupants of the  farms were therefore transported  to Belmont. Our fellows carried  the little children and babies in  their arms all the way and marched  into Belmont singing with the little  ones on their shoulders.  Every respect was shown to the  women, old aud young, and to old  mpu, but the young fellows were  closely guarded all the time. The  Canadians did not lose a siugle  man, neither did any of the others  except the Queenslanders."  January 29th: "The Boers shelled  the women's laager for two hours  ou Saturday, January 27th. Boer  women, warned by spies evidently,  went into the trenches, clapped  their hands and hurrahed when the  shells fell near the English women.  Lady Sarah AVilson was slightly  Avounded. Major Gould Adams and  captain Wilson received concussions  from shell fragments."  BRITISH   POSITION   GIVEN  Boer Women Spiteful.  Loxnox, February 15.���The Daily  Chronicle publishes the following  dispatch    from   Mafeking,    dated  Up With Slight Loss.-  Rexsiiurg, Tuesday, February 13.  ���Before dawn yesterday the enemy  opened an attack upon Slingers.  fontein assaulting with musketry  the hills on the northeast held by  three companies of th<j.7 Worcesters  tinder captain Hovell. The artillery  attack began at sunrise'r- The Boers  approached in numbers estimated  at seven to one. The British under  good cover snstained the attack  throughout tho day.  Meanwhile two big guns on the  west opened  upon the   British at  daylight and fired for half'an hour,  when the British howitzer  silenced  them with lyddite, the .British  artillery filing with precibion.    Then  another   Boer   gun   td^ tW^'north  opened on the Royal Irish Rifles,  but   rather    ineffectually, -as   the  Rifles had  good cover. - _The shelling continued all day andlast evening the Boeis brought up  a forty  pounder in order  to bombard the  camp from a hill to the north.   The  attempt   was    plainly    visible   as  the   guns    could    bo   seen -being  drawn     up     by    eighteen    oxen  With the Boers  surrounding the  British  in  overwhelming' numbers  and having  ar tiller y,  it  then  became evident that it would  be impossible  to retain  Slingersfontein,  wliich the British evacuated under  cover of darkness, falliug back upon  Rensburg.

Stewart, the Balfour extension contractor, returned to Nelson  last night to resume control of the  local end of the undertaking. Mr.  Stewart has had his plant loaded  ou the carsat Greenwood and expects the shipment along shortly.  The first lot of supplies will be received as soon as the storehouse at  the depot is completed, lie states  that the .subcontracts for the work  will be announced in a couple of  days.  Constable Alan Forrester of Robson brought in a crazy Frenchman  named Joe Chandilet last night and  lodged him in the provincial jail  over night. Chandilet had been  running wild in the mountains a  few miles from Robson, and was  tied up in a shanty by some section  men on the Columbia & Western  road in order that he would not  freeze to death. He will be brought  before.magistrate Crease this raorn--  ing and will probably be committed  to an asylum.  A resident of Slocan Junction  complains of the depredations  which have beeu committed in that  district recently by a band of Colville Indians." This band < has  slaughtered no less than 120 deer  already this season.  A meeting will be held this evening in St. Paul's PieSbytorian  church under the auspices of the  Ladies' Missionary Society.

BRILLIANT    PERFORMANCE  By General French.  Loxnox, February 11..���11:35 p.m.  ���The war office has issued the following message from lord Roberts,  received this evening.  "Deckeils drift, February 11,8:15  a. m., general French left this point  at 11:30 yesterday morning with  the three brigades of cavalry, horse  artillery and mounted infantry,-including several colonial contingents,  in order to seize a crossing of the  Modder river . about 25 miles dis-  ,tinit. He reports by a despatch  dated 5:35. p.;._m. ��� that he has  forced a passage at Clip  drift and occupied the hills  north of the'_ river, capturing three  of the enemy's laagers with their  supplies, while general Gordon" of  the 15th Hussars with his brigade,  who has made a feint at Rondoval  drift four miles west, has seized it  and a second .drift"between-.'-.that  and Clip drift, together with two  more laagers.  "Geueral French's performance is  brilliant, considering the excessive  heat and a blinding dust storm  which raged during the latter part  of the day. ;-.;:~;:..-.., . ���;.-    ;.'-. .'"  "Owing .to the rapidity of; his  movements,; general .-French' met  with but slight opposition and his  losses were small. Lieutenant Johnson of the Inniskillen Dragoons is  the billy officer reported seriously  injured. The sixth division was  last night on the north bank of the  river at Watervaal drift and is  moving to support the cay_dry.  Four officers and.53 men had to be  sent back last evening in the returning ox wagons to the railway line  prostrated by heat and exhaustion."  LARGE BRITISH ARMY NOW  incidents at  Rensburg have   been  seen out of all proportions.   Merely  a   skeleton   line was   maintained  there,   while    troops   were   being  secretly and rapidly concentrated  on the Modder river.   The facility  with which 30,000 men ha veal ready  been sent beyond the rail terminus  shows that general Kitchener has  be fully   successful in   organizing  transports.   He is now supposed to  be    down      the      line,', sending  forward    more    troops   and   getting    together    more    transports.  About     five    miles     of   ox    and  mule wagon trains are estimated  for   each   division,   so    that   lord  Kitchener has immense labors  in  hand.  The London morning papers take  rather sober views of the situation,  but are.greatly pleased and hopeful  of what is to come. - ���   ".  In the Free State.  Loxnox, February 15.���The British a'rmy for the first time since  the'war began is inside the Boer  frontier.^ Lord Roberts with at  least 40,000 infantry, 7000 cavalry  arid 150 guns has turned the? Mag-  ersfontein lines, before which the  British forces have encamped for  ten w'eeks and, with half ^of his  corps, he. is already operating on  Free State territory, A battle has  not yet been fought, but large  tactical advantages have been  gained. The relief of Kimberley is  within measurable reach and the  way to Bloemfontein is appreciably,  easier. L    ,  The dispatches of lord Roberts  sketch three days' work. The forward movement began on Sunday,  when colonel Hannay set out with  a biigade of mounted infantry for  Ramah, on the Riet, eight miles  Jacobs-dale, one of the Boer supply  bases. On Monday geueral French,  with the' cavalry division, seized  the crossing of the Riet river at  Dekii's Drift, south _of_Jacob��daIe,  and IS inile,s east of Honeynest  Kloof. He skirmished with the  Boers and cleared the way for  20,000 infantry, who followed  across-.  On Tuesday with his three cavalry  brigades and the horse artillery,  general French rode to the Modder river, a distance of 25 miles and  NELSON CURLERS CAME OUT  On Top Yesterday.  Rossi-AXD, B.

He had a few casualties in brushes with the Boer horse.  General French has now fixed himself on general Cronje'1- main line of  communication with Bloemfontein  and 20,000 infantry with 72 guns  are being pushed up to support him  there.  Lord Roberts' despatches wired  from inside the Free State and on  the Riet river left him AVednesday  morning. His advance had not  been opposed by the Boers in force.  Their patrols melted away as the  British moved forward. The Boer  army is likely to be felt iu a day  or two and a battle is consequently  imminent. As to what force general Cronje has now at his disposal,  aud a_> to whore he purposes making a stand against the invader.1', no  one here connected with the war  office knows anything.  The data for conceptions are  wholly wanting. The forces immediately at the disposal of lord Roberts are placed at 50,000 in a general way. These figures are re-  venled by the commands mentioned  in the dispatches, as having been  added to tho division known to be  with lord Methuen. Quite possibly  lord Roberta has 10,000 or 20,000  more.   Now it is realized that tho  BOERS  ARE  ENTRENCHING  On the Tugela.  ~ LbxiioNrFebruary 1 sr���ThcTIJaily"  Telegraph has received the following dated Tuesday from its special  correspondent at Frere : "On Sunday the Boers advanced down the  Ladysmith road, toward Fotgietor's  Drift, and 300 nieu on horseback  with others proceeded to a point  where they began to construct new  rows of trencher at right angles to  the road. This was about two miles  north of the Drift.  - A party of Boers also crossed tho  Tugela about .six miles below Pot-  gicteifs Drift, where they spied the  South African Light Horse, who repulsed them. Several other skirmishes have taken place, and the  Boers are evidently anxious about  their positions. They have been  throwing up defensive works from  Trichard's Drift, and the Spion Kop  range eastward to the Illwangawa  and Monte Christo hills, both on  this side of the Tugela. They also  have two, if not three wooden  bridges spanning the Tugela iu the  bend and a w ire rope apparatus for  the conveyance of food and ammunition aerot-S the river.  YESTERDAY'S DEBATES IN  Provincial House.  Victoria, February 14.���-[Special  to The Tribune.]���Higgins made  complaint in the house today that  iu the return of the correspondence  on the eight-hour law there was  ���not included a letter sent by Hume  on the fifth of June to the secretary  of the Nelson District Mining Association. Thi" letter, Higgins  held, was of particular importance  because of its declaration that the  government did not caie to open  the matter then because it would  "be gone into thoroughly at the  next session of the legislative assembly."  Higgins, later gave notice of a  motion declaring this omission to  be a deliberate violation of the  privileges of the house, and an attempt to evade compliance with its  order, also conveying censure on  the government for its failure to  introduce legislation to deal with  the evil resulting in Kootenay from  operation of the eight hour law\  Martin's motion to investigate  Cotton was called, but stood over at  the request of Joe, who said he had  understood the redistribution would  occupy today, and therefore had  not his material" at hand. Cotton  pressed him to proceed, but finally  consented to the motion standing  "until tomoi row.  Kellie continued tho debate on  redistribution, favoring the immediate introduction of a measure  Semlin followed, declaring that circumstances and pressure of administrative duties had prevented the  government from bringing in a bill  so far, and moving an amendment  to Martin's motion striking out his  implied censure, and declaring it  expedient to submit a fair aud  equitable redistribution measure  during the present session.  Dealing with the argument that  the government cannot with propriety propose any legislation-so -  important because of the recent  loss of support in the house, Semlin  observed simply that "Circumstances aro certainly different in  in the house, but I am not aware -  that they are iu the country."  Turner, in the debate following,  insisted that a government in 'ao  precarious a condition could not  hope to pass a fair measure. The  debate was to have been continued  this evening but the reporters refused to stay on duty, and at Joe  Martin's request it was adjourned  until Friday to enable them to  write out their reports of this afternoon's proceedings. The rest -of  the evening was spent ou private  bills. -     - '  Boers Occupy Our Camps.  London, February 15.- A despatch to the Morning Post from  Chieveley dated Tuesday con fir ins  the report that parties of Boers  have occupied the old British camps  on Spearman's farm, and the correspondent who identified the  wounded lieutenant Churchill, the  brother of Mr. Winston Churchill,  says ho was shot through the right  leg.  STEAMER AMUR BRINGS THE  Klondike News.  Victoria, February ! 1.���Tho  steamer Amur of thi^ city arrived  from Skagway tim morning with  37 passengei-!-including fivu-members of the Northwest -Mounted  Police, nearly all time expired men ,  who came down to endeavor to enlist in Strathcona's Horac. They  were disappointed when they learned that the detachment had gone  from here, but will go to Calgary to  do what they can to secure enlistment.  Among other passengers was  Turner Thompson of thiVcity, who  made the trip from Dawson over  the ice with a dog team of five animals. It was (58 degrees below '/.era  when he left Dawson.  News was. brought of the suicide  of Mrs. Grace Tcnny, wife of the  deputy collector of customs of Ju- '  noau. She was preparing to come  down to Seattle wheu she committed the deed. Her husband had  ju.st started dowu town to secure  an expressman to take her baggage  to the steamer when she took a revolver and shot herself through the  heart.  The Yukon Sun of January .'.0th  received by the Amur says.: "Mr.  Varicle who came to Dawson from  Paris last year will go to Vancouver  in the spring aud return here by  balloon. The balloon to be used is a  fine one and was brought from  Paris to Vancouver by Mr. Varicle.  This gentleman intends later to  visit the lower Yukon country by  the same means..''

Although the labo:- livniblc iu  tie  Slocan   has  not yet been  adjusted, there is now overy reason to  believe that a satisfactory arrangement  Avill  be  reached  within  the  next day or. two, and that by  the  end of the  Aveek  every mine nuui-  ���ager who  desires  to resume  work  will be enabled to do so.    That the  lockout  Avas  not lifted some time  ago is, in a very great "measure, the  fault   of   the  mine  owners  themselves;    and   it is not  outside  the  bounds of probability that had the  mine   owners  made  their   present,  concession .when  the   trouble  was  Iirst precipitated, there AA'ould have  .   remained no  necessity for a lockout.    Now that the end of the contest appears to  be  in  sight it Avill  generally   be   conceded   that   the  miners, through  tlieir union,-have  shown good  generalship and  good  sense.    They have  committed none  of the breaches of the peace which  the Nelson Miner aud other  opponents of organized labor predicted  for  them.      For this  reason  they  will coiue out of the present struggle  stronger  than  they  were  Avhen it  commenced, and -will have disarmed  many of tlieir critics.    In a labor  trouble of any proportions it Avould  bo strange indeed if there Avere not  some little   unpleasantness.    When  men are contending for a principle,  it is very hard for them to staud  by and say nothing Avhile foreigners  are  imported,  in violation of the  law, to take their places and defeat  their object.    It avus this condition  which  called  forth such little bad  feeling   as    innrkbd    the    present  struggle.    Ifut then it is .safe to say  that the miners did not offend more  than any other similar body of men  would under similar circumstances,  hud,  AVhen   all  is said and   done,,  there   Ava.s,  less"   bad    feeling   for  greater   cause   displayed    by   the  miners than has been shown in the  legislature during the past Aveek.  -5.0_.fi_; complaint is heard from  men who frequent the reading room  of the Nelson Library Association  with ie-peet to the treatment they  receive. M.uiy^persons make use of  the as-Oeiation'a reading i oom iu the  belief that it is a public institution,  so far as the leading room is con-  - corned. If this presumption on  their part isnot correct, theoflicers  of the association should post a  notice in the reading room stating  that it is not'open to the public. If  the room is open to the public the  of-icor1- of the association should see  to it that citizens who take advantage of the reading room receive  due courtcf-y from the attendants.  Another necessity to the enjoyment  of a reading room during the winter  is a fire.  Jt should not be necessary  for frequenters, of a libraiy to  muffle u p like arctic explorer:, before  proceeding to look over tho magazines. It is said that thia is sometimes necessary in the reading room  of tho Nelson Library Association.

It should not be difficult for the city  council  to determine whether or not the work could  be undertaken by the corporation,  and a considerable saving effected.  Contractors for work of this kind  should not be able to arrive at the  probable cost any closer  than  the j  city engineer, and their tenders are  always based upon the actual cost,  with a round percentage added for  their own profit. There is no  reason Avhy the corporation with  good superintendence should not do  the work as cheaply as any of the  contractors who haA'e tendered  upon it. If the corporation can, it  is likely that at least ten per cent  upon the cost of the wharf will'be  saved to the city. But there are  other advantages which attend the  performance of such Avork by day  labor. Theie is no inducement for  anyone to skimp, and when the job  is finished thecity has eA'ery assurance that it has beeu performed in  a workmanlike manner. There is  also the additional advantage with  respect to day labor, that it enables the corporation to give residents and taxpayers a chance for  employment in preference. to out-  sideis avIio may be less deserving.  The city council would do Avell to  carefully Aveigh the Economist's  suggestion before dealing with the  wharf proposal.  The spoils system is bem^ i iwridly enforced bj  the .Macdonald go\ eminent in Maniloba The  \crj cfllu-Cii. public sei..ints who h.ul been in  tlio sorwee of the Gicenway government, lire  spectne of their party bias, have been dismissed  right and left, the political axe beheading men  who had been in the employ of the Manitoba  go. ernment for periods extending fiom 10 to 20  yc.ais. Men, in fact, who had giov-ii up m the  public service, who took no pari in tho elections,  and with families sjiowing up, weie not consid-  ei ed for a moment.  The above is from the Vancouver  World. Had the Semlin goA'ernment done likeAvise, it would be in a  better position politically today.  It is not good politics to keep your  enemies in positions where they  can stab you in the back at every  opportunity. Hugh John Macdonald is a practical politician aud he  is turning his enemies out of office.  IIis fiiends are just as capable of  carrying on the public business as  were the fiieucl1- of Thomas Green-  wny. _A ny way,"if the people select  a man to cany on their business  affairs he should be alloAved to  select the men who must of necessity help him to do the work.  , Tins Rossland Miner is  much  in-'  * -- ���_!  censed because tho people enroute  from the East to Rossland are  sometimes compelled to remain over  one night at Nelson. Well, since  the closing down of the mines at  I-OPsland, even the people of Rossland may prefer lo pass one night  in a live city like Nelsou.

The Dragoons  pic-fcd   on.   galloped   through   the  seventy-four   advanced    guns     of  Noy's, sabred the gunners,  cut the  artillery   hordes'   throats, and  rendered those batteries  entirely useless.

A dospora.e hand-to-  hand   fight  ensued,   but  the thick  grey coats of the Russians made it  almost   impossible   to   get   cut or  tfuust home.     Owing to tlio  suddenness Avith which the charge had  been started,  :i certain  amount of  Confusion had got into the ranks of  HieJioyaU, so colonel   Yorke A\i.,ely  mllied his men,    The regiment Avas  consequently halted  and refoimed.  Major   Wardlaw,    afterwards     in  cotninnnd of tho regiment, tooki>art  in this action. 1 le had been suffering  severely from illuc?s for some time;  butr whilst lying "down" outside-iiis"  tent-door,   ho  saw   our   Dragoons  Avith the eneniy in   front of them.  Instantly   mounting   his    charger,  Avhich Avas always kept ready not-  AviLhstanding his illness, he reached  the scene of action just as his regiment Avas   reforming.     A  gallant  deed Avas performed  by  troop-sergeant-major Morris on this ot cation.  lie had got rather  too far afield  during tho ehaige, and, ou healing  the   ri-ll$r, hastened   back   to the  regiment.   Ho wasoppo-cd on open  ground "by four  Kii^ian   Hussars.  Nothing daunted, ho went for the  nearest of them, killed him. drove  off   the   resl,   and   captured   the  charger of tho slain man as Avell.  blue trimmings. Under James II.  tho regiment fought at Sedge-  moor, and were on duty on  ToAver Hill Avhen Monmouth  Avas executed. When James II  abdicated, the regiment transferred  its loyalty aud services to William  HI., and were conspicuous for their  valor in many engagements in Ireland and Scotland. The Royals  were the first regiment to cross the  pontoon-bridge over the Shannon,  ��� and found themselves opposed by  au old commander of theirs, colonel  Clifford, avIio had been raised to  the rank of general by James II.  The year 1702 found the Royals  engaged in covering the sieges of  Venloo, Ruremonde, Bonn, and Li hi-  buig. Their expedition to Portugal was not a success, owing to the  folly and criminal parsimony of  the Portuguese authorities, avIio  supplied horses that were so inferior that only twenty men per  troop could be mounted. At the  relief of S. Muttheo, two hundred  of the regiment formed the caAraly  of a force that routed five times  their number of the enemy.  At Dettingen, their first honor,  the Royals captured the standard  of the famous Mousquetaires Noire.  The standard was white, emblazoned with gold and silver. It was  blood-red before a sergeant of the  lloyals claimed it as his.  In 1700 we find the Royals abroad  again, actively engaged at Warburg, in which action they took 21  officers and 200 men of the Swiss  regiment of Plauta prisoners.  The Peninsula 'was a grand field  .of-'Operation for the British Dragoons, and here Ave find our gallant  1st Royals conspicuous for their  bravery, and for the. number of  prisoners they took. Charging  threatening masses of French at  Fuentes d'Onoro, two squadrons of  1st Royals released a party of our  Foot Guards, avIio had be_en taken  prisoners, and also captured their  captori.  South Africa offers splendid  opportunities for our bold Diagoons,  and avo are confidently awaiting  the succo-.sos of those of the strong  arm and firm seat avIiosp efforts are  directed agaiust those that seek to  undermine the vast empire their  foi bears helped to build up.   -  McCOY   QUITS   THE   EINQ.  band so long as he remained in  what they termed a disreputable  business. .        '      '  But McCoy turned a deaf ear to  all entreaties and Avent on carving  out fame aud dollars with his strong  arms and fists. The roasting he received in connection Avith the  Choynski go rather soured the Kid,  and when he recently had an offer  to take part of a brokerage business  he said he would give the matter  serious consideration.  Mrs. McCoy recently Avon a suit  involving many thousand dollais.  Her victory brought her quite a  fortune. This she ..offered to turn  over in its entirety to her husband  on condition that he quit the ring  forever. Then came an offer from  the Avife's folks, who said they were  Avilling to extend a helping hand  and do everything in their power  for McCoy provided he' would agree  to quit.  McCoy weakened. He consulted  his broker friend again, and the upshot was that McCoy is to go into  the firm as a silent partner. It is  said that McCoy has $100,000 cash  at his command and can raise as  much more !if necessary.  In McCoy the ring loses one of its  cleverest fighters. McCoy Avas intensely ambitious and hoped some  day to be the champion heavyweight. His build Avas against him  him and he did'not'have, the physical makeup to beat men of the  Jeffries and Sharkey type. He  probably realized that lie., would  never get to the top, and so.listened  to tho earnest appeals of his wife  and friends and has turned to legitimate businesss for a livelihood.  m  CHAIRS (?)

Lfris rather a startling metamorphosis for a'pugilist to  undergo, bu t i fc is nevertheless a fact.

He has  leeeived an excellent offer from a  fiieud iu Wall street, and has decided  to become a  partner in tho  brokerage firm.   McCoy'.- rise was meteoric. He  started as boxing companion to  Tommy Ryan. Ho constantly studied fighting, as a doctor does his  anatomical specimens. He soon  realized that, Avhile strong arms and  good hard fists Avere important factors, tho science of footwork aud  ring generalship Avon the battles.

A young man called at the news  office yesterday to characterize  London as a "dead town." "I have  hunted all over the city," he said,  "for a job as bookkeeper and stenographer, and I can't get it. Occasionally, I strike a place" where they  want a bookkeeper or stenographer,  but they tell me they see no reason  why they should pay me six or seven  dollars a'.week'.when they can get  girls to do it for half that figure."  We fancy our friend is a trifle hasty  in characterizing London as .'a .dead  toAvn, for the reason specified.

Among the most recent arrivals  in South Africa is the 1st Battalion  Oxfordshire Light Infantry, once  the 13rd Monmouthshire Light infantry of glorious memory. Though  it boasts neither a "royal" title nor  the lacings worn by regiments so  designated, the 'l.'.rd has won distinction enough to be able to dispense with an honor that does not  al\vay_< mean a great /leal, for it i.s  one of the three regiments which  formed the famous "Light Division'*  with Wellington iu the Peninsular  war, its present 2nd Battalion (the  old 52nd Oxfordshire Light Infantry) having also been one of the  three, the other being what was  then the 95th Regiment, now the  '���Rifle Brigade."  Its first war-service was in Canada, and it was with Wolfe at  Quebec. But, after much more  fighting in America, the West Indies, and at Copenhagen, also with  Sir John Moore at Corunna, the  43rd covered itself with glory in the  Peninsula, fighting iu almost every  action. Indeed, the Oxfords, besides "Corunna," "Peninsula," and  "Waterloo," bear no loss than eleven  of Wellington's victories on their  colors, and it must be remembered  that these should really count twice  over, as both battalions. fought in  the battles. Since then," in South  Africa, the mutiny, ''Avhen the  regiment marched 1,300 miles  in the "hot weather," aud  New Zealand, the 43rd has always distinguished itself, and it  will undoubtedly do its best to  maintain its grand,traditions.  Some year or so ago there arose  ah agitation both in Canada and  in this country anent the repatriation of the Royal Canadians, the  one-time 100 Foot. The events of  the past feAV months, however, have  given the gallant Canadians another  and a very different'opportunity of  showing their attachment to the  mother country, which they have  gladly availed.themselves of.  The government, in pursuance of  the scheme, when the 2nd battalion  were leaving Canada for Barbados,  ordered the 1st battalion to Canada.  Now, the old 100th is coming home,  and will in all .-probability���.������.from  part of the 8th division. The 100th  was formed in Canada in 1858, and  has seen no war-service, its "honor"  of "Niagara" being acquired from a  former "100th." Its other "honor!'  of "Central India" was won by its  2nd battalion, the "109th Bombay  Infantry'' an old "John Company"  regiment. Surely one of the  strangest transformations of the  territorial system was that which  coupled a Canadian regiment with  another of Indian origin, under the  title of "The Prince of Wales' Lein-  ster Regiment (Royal Canadians)."  Made Volunteers Foresters.  Acting upon orders from Dr.  Orondyatekha, city clerk Denmau  of Kingston, D.H.C.R. of the I.O.F., v  made, at sight, foresters of twenty-  seven inembers of "C" Field Battery. These men belonged to St.  Catherines, Orillia, Niagara Falls  and Kingston: twelve belong to the  first named place, two, Orillia,  three, Niagara Falls, and ten, Kingston. People of these places are  placing insurance on the lives of  these men, hence the orders to make  them Foresters without the formality of initiation.  Wholesale  Houses  NELSON  B.C.  GROCERIES.

Colonel Jarvis was in command of  brigades at Sarnia and at Windsor,  his experience in the regular service being of inestimable value to  the militia authorities during thc  exciting period when a Fenian invasion was feared.  The ladies' hockey team is practising diligently for the tournament at the Rossland carnival, and  are confident of carrying off the  honors. The players"will be: Goal,  Miss Harvey; point, Miss Stella  Tamblyn; cover point, Miss Lillie-  white; forwards, Misses Tamblyn,  MeDonnid, Hudson and Johnston.  Tlio officers of the club are: J.  Lawrence, president; A. A. Perrier,  vice-president; C, E. Beasley, manager; Miss Tamblyn, captain; Miss  Hudson, secretary-treasurer. The  team leaves on  Saturday morning.  A number of deserving cases have  come under the attention of the  Charitable Societies organization,  recently, the extreme cold weather  of the past few days having developed several instances where relief  should bo extended. Tho organization is hampered," unfortunately,  through lack of funds, and it is  hoped that this v. ill be overcome  shortly.  Joe Sullivan and Tom Gannon,  tho convicted burglars, will be  taken to the penitentiary this week  by the chief of provincial police.  The men are not cast down over  their sentence, which, it is stated,  can bo substantially shortened bv  good behavior. Sullivan aiid Gannon had only been released *i few  days after the completion of six  mouths' terms when they entered  Dr. LaBau's residence.  W. IL Bullock-Webster, chief of  provincial constables, is expeeted  to ariive in Nelson tonight after  his vacation in England. Since the,  departure of constable Kelly, who  was in charge of the office during  "Mr. "Webster's absence, government  agent Goepel has attended to matters arising in connection with the  ollice.  The health authorities receive  word daily from Beaver creek  where twelve men are quarantined  in a section house, one of the number having developed smallpox in a  mild form. No more cases have occurred and the quarantined men  protest vigorously against the regulations. They are anxious to  know who is going to reimburse  them for tho time they are losing,  and tin eaten suit against the province. Meanwhile the quarantine  i.s observed more strictly than ever.  The strong breeze wliich prevailed here yesterday was not a circumstance to the gale which blew  on fche lake. Towing was a decidedly difficult proposition, and wheu  the Moyie brought in her barges  yesterday she could not laud them  for several hours.  A ton and a half of ore from the  Venn*, mine on Morning mountain  whs- brought down today iu 100-  pound Kicks. Thusc will be shipped  to various sampling ' works iu  Southern California, where extensive tests will be made to determine  the most profitable process of hand  ling the  ore.     The  system  which  produces   most    favorable   results  will be adopted and a mill  erected  on the company's property.  The handsome pulpit which Free  man & Curtis, Victoria street, are  building for St. Saviour's church is  progressing rapidly toward completion. Mr. Freeman is now carving the eight panels which are to  be placed just beneath the railing.  They figure on having the pulpit  erected in the church for Easter  Sunday.  The construction of J. IT. Stewart's storehouse at tho C. I'. 11.  depot will be delayed for a few  days until the weather moderates.  The Nelson Saw & Pinning Mills  Company, who have the contract  for the building, were compelled to  take tlieir men off yesterday owing  to the excessive cold.  The board of health regulation  regarding vaccination of school  children goes into effect today.  City clerk Strachan, who is secretary of the board, has notified the  principals of-the public and private  schools-that-the, regulation must lie  enforced strictly. During the past  few days a very' large number of  children have been vaccinated, but  it is probable that a few will be  fquijd today who have not complied  with the regulation.  The attendance of scholars at tho  Hume addition school has risen to  35, an increase of 10 since the first  roster was published in Thi. Triij-  itnb. Principal Clayton has the  school program running smoothly,  and the indications are that the  classes are about as large a�� they  are likely to become this term.  The C. P. R. circular officially announcing the changes in the district superintendeney, etc., was received here today. The contents  are practically identical with the  announcement made some time ago.  The members of Nelsou lodge No.  25, K. of P., will attend for divine  service in St. Paul's church on Sunday afternoon. Members of the  lodge, and any visiting members of  the order are requested to meet at  the lodge room at 3 o'clock.  The management of tho skating  rink will have a band in attendance  this evening. The ice is in good  shape.  F. J. Bradley & Co. have completed their painting .contract of  the Hall block, on Baker street, and  the building is now ready for occupancy. ���   r  James Turner pleaded guilty  j'cstcrday afternoon to the charge  of having burglarized Ebbs' sjhoe  _>tot'e,'Rud was sentenced to three  years and a half' imprisonment by  justice Martin. The prisoner threw  himself on the mercy of the -court,  aud _>a id that he alone was guilty  and that Rogers and Bowes had  -nothing to do with the robbery,  though he had asked them to  peddle the stolen shoes.  The ease of Thurston vs Tatter-  sall was begun at a late hour yesterday afternoon and will be continued at 10:30 this morning. The  plaintiff is suing for 10 .per cent  commission on the sale of the Chapleau mine near Slocan City. Charles  Wilson, Q. C, and F. Elliott appear  for the plaintiff and Macdonald &  Johnson for the defendant. The  next case on the peremptory list is  Bigelow vs LaBau, an action ari.-*-  -ing out -of the administration- of  the Willis estate.  William C.Lacy, an employee of  D. MeArthur & Company, was in-  jiued yesterday afternoon while at  work. He was carrying furniture  from a dray to the warehouse and  in doing so fell, breaking a rib.  Lacy lives on Victoria street.  The contract for curbing Baker  street lias been prepared by tho  city engineer and feigned by the  successful contractor.-., William  Shackleton aud John Laidlaw. Mr.  Sln'ickleton's tender  for  the work  Stoves   Stoves  We have the finest line of COAI HEATERS ever displayed in the district. We are sole agents for the famous COLE'S HOT BLAST HEATER  Our claims for this heater is that it is adapted to any kind of coal.  CROW'S NEST, LETHBRIDGE, or ANTHRACITE, burning all kinds  equally well. Not requiring the attention of an ordinary coal heater.  Economical, durable and simple in construction. See our Steel Ranges  for hard and soft coal or wood.  H. BYERS & CO.  NELSON  KASLO  SANDON  Time  was accepted and he has associated  Mr. Laidlaw with him. The specifications call for the completion of  the curbing by May 1, or such other  date as the city engineer may specify in order to correspond with the  macadamizing of Baker street. The  contractors will start taking out  rock immediately.  o  The Burns building has been  turned over to the company by the  Nelson Saw & Planing Mills who  had the contract. A force of men  are now engaged in putting on the  finishing toucher, and preparing the  unoccupied portions for the tenants.  The Burns officials will probably ue  in their new quarters in the east  half of the second story next week.  The Bank of Montreal's new  building is now in the hands of the  plasterers. When they have finished their woik, a start will be  made on the mosaic tile floor which  i* to be one of the features nf the  building. It will be upwards of a  month before the premises are taken  off the contractor.-' hands, but already an excellent idea of the  appearance of the building -when  completed can be gained.  E. B. Bradon of Helena, Montana,  was in the city yesterday. He was  interested in the Pilot Bay smelter  when that institution was in operation, and is now representative in  this distiict for the American  Smelting and Refining Company.  Mr. Bradon is not shipping any ore  from this'district as a result of his  present trip, but expects to handle  considerable silver-lead in the near  future.  The effort to clear the outlet of  the sewer has been quite successful.  A quantity of debris was forced out  out and the work would have been  completed yesterday had it not been  for the extremely cold weather.  When the temperature rises a line  of hose will be placed in the nearest  manhole and the full pressure let  loose for several hours until it is  absolutely certain that the pipe is  clear.  At 11:30 last night the temperature registered .7 degrees below,  zero.  City clerk Strachan has commenced the task of preparing the  assessment. During hiV house to  house inspection he will secure the  number of children in each household of school age, and the nationality of each resident, both of which  queries are an innovation.  ' The steamer Moyie was replaced  on her regular passenger run last  night after being used for towing  purposes for several weeks. The  Nelson will take the barges in  future, and tho Moyie made the  trip to the Landing with passengers  last higirti  A shipment of goods arrived for  the Hudson's Bay Company yesterday comprising a portion of the  dry goods stock and the fittings  for the dry goods department,  which are now being placed in position.
