PRICE  FIVE CENTS.  I  !  SLOGAN OUTLOOK IMPROVES  More Miaes Resume Work.  Nkw Dion ver, February 13���[Special to the Tribune].���Tho labor  trouble is not yet at an end, though  there is, apparently, but a small  obstacle to overcome, and this, it is  hoped, Avill be accomplished this  week. As it stands, the mine owners are Avilling to pay the compromise schedule of $3.:.5,Avhile the  men are just as Avilling to accept  that iigure. It is stated, however,  that the OAvners refuse to sign the  schedule for aiiy length of time,  asserting that their properties are  open to all mi tiers, the old hands  preferred. "On the other hand, tho  _ men feel that a guarantee should  '',be given that the schedule of wages  abrogated    abruptly  be   not  ind  Avit'ho'ut due- notice. This, is the  situation so far as the public Aric\vs  things.  Six more men from the Coast  came in on Sunday's train for the  Enterprise. They remained over  night at Rosebery, and took the  morning boat Monday for Enterprise Landing, and proceeded up to  the mine. It is expected shipments  will commence from thai property  at an early date, when it "will push  tiie Payne A'ery .closely for fiist  place.  More men avc re added to the force  at  the  Bosun  yesterday, and  the  mine is getting into thorough Avorking shape.    As room is  made more  men will bo taken on till the  stall'  is  i'ull-handed.    Ore  is  being broken down and the management Avill  make   large   shipments.      Reports  from   the annual  meeting, hold in  'Sandon   on   the   23rd  ultimo,  are  most   complimentary.       The   7500  shares   allotted    i'or    development  purpo��es were taken up at  once, so  highly is the property  thought  of.  With a small capital and  excellent  economical management, the Bosun  is  looked  upon  as one of tho best  things on the London market.  Ore from the Ifarcney is now bo-  *iiig rawhided  into town  for  shipment, being the first to come down  from that  property, and  makes it  the  third   shipper   on   the   upper  '-{-lopes  ot" Silver - mountain.    -Two  carloads will be shipped, and  s.ttis-  iaetory returns are looked for.  The  mine  is  in  capital shape, A\ith an  excellent showing of ore.    Manager  Blucnienatier has had his  av.H'o and  family take  up  their  residence in  town.  In the lower workings ou the  Marion the ore chute avus tapped  seA'eral days ago. This, greatly enhances the A-aluo of tho property  , and places it on a funi basis, as a  producci. Incidentally it means  much to Silver mountain.  Ore shipments last Aveek AA'ere 330  tons, of a\ Inch the Payne sent out  310 tons and tiie Vancouver 20.  The latter is the fii-st the Yaucou-  A'er has made this year.  It is giA'on out that the Last  Chance will start up at once with a  full force of men.   Part of the contract work on-the  Idaho has been completed nnd the  men arc down from the mine.  Eight men are Avorking. The No. 1  level broke into a fine -showing of  ore a few days ago. No more contracts will be let on the property,  Avhich is now open for men at- the  $3.23 figure.  Several citizens avIio have been  Avintering ou the outside are returning to town, Avhich, with new families coining in, is making an im-  proA'cmont in business.  A new boiler and engine have arrived for the steam pinnace Alert.  New Denver Avill give a patriotic  concert on Thursday night in aid  of the Canadian Patriotic Fund.  Several good subsetiptions have  been seemed, in addition.  who are drawing salaries practically without the support of either  the country or the house."

Proceedings haA'e beeu instituted  as promised agaiust C.

The connection between  hero   tind   Phoenix   is   also   being  pushed.    All  the poles haA'e  been  erected and the men are uoav engaged in  stringing the  Avires.    It  Avill  not be long after the local service is  working that Phoenix will also be  getting lights.    The city has agreed  to   take half a   dozen   2000 candle  power are lamps and  more Avill  be  installed   after   these    have, been  tested.

TWO BURGLARS SENTENCED  As They Deserved.  The last scene in the LaBau burglary case AA-as enacted yesterday  at the court house Avhen Mr. justice  Martin sentenced Joe Sullivan and  Tom Gannon, the confessed burglars, to seven years each in the  penitentiary. It AA'as believed that  his lordship would grasp the opportunity to make an example of  the men in order to discourage  crooks Avho might have similar  deeds in contemplation, so that the  long sentences did" not surprise  those in attendance on the court.  The prisoners were brought up at  5.o'clock immediately on the adjournment 'Of the regular sittings.  Sullivan and Gannon AA'ere handcuffed together, and Fred Bowes, Joe  Rogers and James Turner were included, the cliarge against the latter trio being that of robbing Ebbs'  shoe store last week.  Sullivan Avent into the prisoner's  box first.   He asked for a speedy  trial and pleaded-guilty.    His lord-'  ship asked him if he had a lawyer  or friend Avho might bring forward  any extenuating  circumstances, to  Avhich  he responded in  the  negative.    The sheriff Avas then asked if  he had anything  to bring  before  the court, whereupon the prisoner's  record Avas produced and handed in.  Turning to Sullivan his lordship remarked  that the offence   charged  Avas one of the most serious on  the  criminal     calendar,       and      that  so   far    as    he  could    see,    there  AA'ere no  mitigating  circumstances.  The  laAV provided  that a life sentence might be given for the offence  in question and he felt it incumbent  upon him to deal with the  matter  in such  a manner  as to afford  a  practical object lesson to those av.Iio  might be   benefitted  thereby.     A  man's home Avas his castle  and  to  A'iolate   that   castle    in   the   'way  adopted by the prisoner 'called for  strong measures on the' part of the  laAV.    He had no desire to harrow  tho prisoner'-, feelings but felt that  the case called for some such comment as he had made.  In conclusion ho would sentence,  the prisoner to seA'en years confinement in the penitentiary," The  sentence had no apparent effect on  Sullivan, Avho had doubtless expected a long term. _ ,  Gannon Avas then placed iu "the  box and passed through a similar  ordeal, saA'e that his lordship did  not refer to his ease at any length.  Bowes and Rogers Avere ararign-  ed in connection with the Ebbs  burglary. They elected for a speedy  trial and pleaded not guilty. Turner pleaded guilty and a vas remanded to this afternoon for sentence.  at Colesburg, wherea Boer A'ictory  A\Tould threaten the British communications tietAveen Cape Toavii and  Modder river." �����������~  ��� Developing this thought he remarks : "British strategy must be  to ..rush iu succession each of the  principal Boer forces near Kimberley, Colesberg and Stormberg by  bringing against them greatly su-  peiior numbers. % Much depends  upon Avhat happens'in Natal. General Joubert is not likely to abandon his presejit enterprise agaiust  Ladysmith until disaster to the"  other Boer armies (compels him."  THE CAPE NOMiTdIGCINCS  Better T_^ Klondike..;;  "' FORT Pil,Ai3S^;Ne;^rYOrk, February 13.���The following is a portion  of a letter received.'here by Erviri  Miller, a returned s Kloiidiker, from  the postmaster, at; "Nome, Alaska,  the latest gold producing field:  .  "Imagine a strip of sandy beach-  whicli will pan frqln $25 to $500  per day. The water ���from the ocean  is used to wash oui.-i.the auriferous  particles and-'there >is a chance for  everyone. Of course,: there is a  strip along the bqaeh about 100  feet wide that belongs to the government for a roadway. But this  can be leased from'.the interior department and is being worked by  those who are in need of ready  money for the necessaries of life.  'About eight mouths ago a crowd of  2000 miners came' in dead broke.  They had lost everything they had  in the Copper river^fcountry and to  them the free gold on the beach  was a God send.  "I have never see anyone who  AA'anted to Avork clean up less than  $25 a day. There are times Avhen  rich pockets would be struck and  the labor of a feAV hours woilld pay  $500.- The best time to work is in  tho winter Avhen the ground is  frozen, but even then the climate is  not so severe as in the Klondike  and the miners work to better ad-  A'antage. * Up in the hills mines  have been discovered and have been  worked for seA'eral seasons.* Qne'of  them employs eight men and has  turned out over $250,000 net."  DOERS GET THE DETTER OF  West Indian Eeciprocity.  Kingston, Jamaica, February 13.  ���Adopting the cabled advice of  the British ambassador at Washington, lord Pauucefote, the government has determined to bring forward 'the reciprocity measure as  tho first legislative business next  week, for .Jamaica must ratify it  ihst. Guinea desires to withdraw  from the agreement and Trinidad  i-_ urgent for a further modification.        Fighting in South Africa.  Kingston, Jamaica, February 13,  ���The British steamer Tagus Avhich  has arrh'cd here from Colon reports  heavy fighting la*t Aveek around  Barranquilla while the insurgent  forces pressing Carthagena for the  purpose of cutting off Bogota from  mail communication. Rodriguez.,  it is further asserted, has escaped  from Pioho Avith 200 fellow ptison-  crs and has a quantity of arms.  Some Severe Fighting.  London, February 14.���A dispatch to the Daily Mail from Rensburg dated yesterday^ says: "There  has been hard fighting for tAvo days  near Colesburg. The Boers are  making strenuous efforts to outflank the British left. The enemy  occupies a strong position from  Achtertang through Potfontein to  a point five miles south of Jas>-  fontein.  Tiie fighting at the outpost camps  has been A'ery severe during the  last few days. Yesterday the Boers  attacked the position of the Worcester's to the southeast of Colesburg. Tho fighting continued all  day aud after dark it was considered necessary to withdraw to  Rensburg. Our loss is not known.  On the left the West Australians,  Wiltshires and Berkshires had hot  fighting but held their own agaiust  long odds. The Boer loss was considerable. Owing to the growing  difficulty experienced by the con-  A'oys in marching to the camps, all  of the latter Avere A'acated last  night and the troops Avithdrow to  Rensburg.  The Boers are burning the farms  of the loyalists, but the latter haAT,  contrived to get aAvay  their  stock.  Spencer Wilkinson, in the Morning Post, discussing the news from  Rensburg, says: "This neAvs is the  natural price paid for a bloAV olse-  Avhore. Tiie concentration at Modder river is apparently accompanied by a Awakening of the force at  Colesburg, and of this tho Boers  have taken advantage to assume  the offensive. Meamvhile it looks  as though the enemy has about  Avitlidrawn his force from Magers-  fontein in order to reinforce those  Nicaraguan Treaties.-  AVashington, February 13.���Referring to the statement that Belgium and France Avould unite in a  protest against the American control of the Nicaraguan canal, based  on their treaties AA'ith Nicaragua,  Mr. Correa, minister from Nicaragua, said rtoday; "The _ statement  is manifestly in error inasmuch as  it refers to Belgium, as 1 cannot recall that Nicaragua _ has  eArer made - a - treaty Avith  Belgium in reference to the canal."  Mr. Correa said that the treaty between France and Nicaragua Avas  negotiated in Washiugtou in 1859  betAveen the French- and the Nicaraguan ministers stationed here and  its article referring to the canal is  as follows:  __"Article 27���The Republic of_N_i-_  caragua by the present treaty  grants France and French subjects the right of transit between the Atlantic and  Pacific oceans through the territory  of this republic by all routes or  means of communication on land or  sea, which exist or may exist or be  constructed under tho authority of  the public of Nicaragua to bo enjoyed or to. be used " in tho same  manner by both parties and their  subjects."*  Nicaragua made a treaty Avith  Great Britain in 18(50 with an article similar to that with .France.  The_treaty which Nicaragua made  Avith Spain is also similar in plan  aud scope.    Trinidad and the United States,  Washington, February 13.���Another reciprocity treaty aviis signed  at the state department today by  lord Pauucefote and Mr. Masson,  conferring upon the island of Tiin-  idad, West Indies, privileges in the  matter of reduced import duties on  goods sent into the United States,  similar to those granted to the  Windward and other islands of the  British West indies. ' The concessions made to the United States on  our goods going into Trinidad are  also generally similar to those contained in the other treaties.  POOR MEN TO HAVE ACHANCE  To Enter the Army.  . London, February 13.���In the  house of commons today, Mr.  Thomas HedderAvick, advanced  Liberal, gave notice of a resolution  calling attention to the fact that  the colonies are Avithout representatives in the imperial parliament.  The resolution AA'as set doAA'n for a  month hence, but it is not likely  that time, will be.found for its discussion.  ������.- TheMinder secretary of state for  .the foreign'.'office, Mr. William St.  John Brodei'ick, Avas asked Avhether  the goA'ernment had -received any  communication from . Germany,  modifying the declaration made in  1895 by the then minister of foreign  affairs, baroil von Bieberstein, to  the effect that Germany's only policy  Avas the maintenance of the Transvaal as an independent state hr accordance with the treaty of 1884. He  replied that no communication had  been received. from the German  government relative to the con-  iveiition of 1S84 AA'hich, he added, as  a matter of fact, Avas terminated  by the state of war.  The under secretary of state for  the Avar office, George Wyndham,  definitely set at rest all fears of  government interference in the prerogative of the commander-in-chief,  field marshal lord Wolseley, to  select the generals commanding in  South Africa. Replying to a question, Mr. Wyndham said the  commanders in the field Avere  selected by lord Wolseley subject to the approval of the  secretary of state for Avar, aud added that every selection put for-  Avard had been approA'ed.  When the bill on the army supplementary list was taken up, Mr.  Wyndham, during the course of a  speech, again intimated that an attempt Avould be made to democratize the army, which he said ho  thought ought not to be, closed to  officers who did hot enjoy an income  of from ��150 to ��500 a year. Mr.  Wyndham also said it Avas a sean-  dal and a danger to the empire that  young men could not enter the caA'alry unless-their fathers were able  to give them ��500 a 'year. The under secretary further stated that it  was not intended to rahe volunteers in Ireland.  Avho cannot for A'arious reasons  fight at their country's call. All  the braA'est of Great Britain's sons  will shortly be at the front. We  desire their absent comrades to  prove by their liberality that they  are mindful of the sufferings of  those who fall in bravely keeping  up the traditions of British soldiers."

In speaking of the appeal to a representative    of    the    Assorted  Press, lady Curzon, who is an aunt  of .the duke of Marlborough,  said :  "I do hope it Avill be clearly understood that Ave Avould not ask for  financial aid from Americans.

London, February 13.���As * the  conviction grows in Great Britain  that the Avar will be long, efforts  for proA'iding i'or the sick and  wounded "and tho families of the  soldiers at the front are redoubled.  There is scarcely a woman in England avIio, in addition to making  clothing for the men, is not AA'orking  for and contributing to some special  fund. Mrs.���Arthur���Pagct's- euter-  ment tonight brought in over ��5000  for the families of the Household  troops iu. which her husband is  colonel of the Scots. Guards.

The equipment for the Yeomanry  hospital has just left England for  the Cape, and the ladies-at tho  head of this charity have now concluded to raise funds to kpep the  hospital going for six months, and  have issued the following appeal to  British residents of -the United  States.  ���'We are venturing to address an  appeal to our fellow countrymen  who, although absent from their  native land, are Avrapped up heart  andsoul in its, prospeiity.

Thus at a time when lord Roberts  is. apparently about to push an  army into the Free State, the Boers  make a counter stroke in au unknown but seemingly great force  not far from the vital line of rail-  Avay connecting De Aar and Orange  river. Military observers do not  regard this as more than a menace,  nevertheless the news produces an  unpleasant impression here.  General French manoeuvered the  Boers out of Rensburg in December.  On January 1st it Avas reported  that he could take Colesburg in tAvo  days Avith reinforcements. These  were sent, but the Boers also Avere  reinforced. Since then the British  lines haA'e been extended east aud  Avest, so at the opening of this Aveek  they constituted a great horseshoe  twenty-five miles in length. The  lines Avere not continuous, but * all  the - strong positions were held.  General French, Avhen he joined  lord Robert", presumably took most  of his cavalry, and general Clements  Avas left Avith' the infantry -to hold  the Boers in check, but commandant  Delarey with a double turning  movement has compelled the Biitish  to concentrate at Rensburg besides  threatening lord Roberts communications.   '  The indications as to general  Buller's late intentions are contradictory. One informant Avho has  intimate relations with > the war  office predicts a movement Avithin  the next two days. A number of  correspondents who have been Avith  general Buller, however, have "gone  to Durban for a few days' .rest  under the impression that nothing  is to be done immediately.  The Avar office has directed the  tenth division of 10,000 men to prepare to go out.   Session Excites Interest.   VictoriA.February 13. -Crowded  galleries throughout the continu  ance of the sittings have become  the rule at the parliamentary chamber for it is now agreed that the  most unsuspicious appearing routine may at any moment produce a  government defeat. The peculiar  turn taken by events night  AvJien, but for Helmcken, the government Avould have been forced to  carry so important a measure of  policy as the Coal Mines Regulation  bill on the hpeaker's vote, continues  the main topic of consideration in  the lobbies, Avhere it is agreed that  tho measure is not yet to be classed  a.s carried.

LECAL PROCEEDINGS AT THE  Court House.  The sitting of the supreme court  opened yesterday morning before  Mr. justice Martin Avith the case of  Alexander vs. Kaslo & Slocan railway. Galliher k Wilson for the  plaintiff made application for an  adjournment until Saturday Avhich  was granted. E. P. Davis, Q. C,  and A. Whealler of Kaslo appeared  for the defendant company.  The ease of Lawrence ats. the Hall  Mines was struck off the list OAving  to the non-appearance of the plaintiff.  , The next ease called /was -that of  Oppenheimer a's. the Brackman &  Ker Milling Company, and it occupied the, rest of the day. The  plaintiff is suing for $1025 for hay  ordered, Avhich amount the defence  accepted as correct and paid into  court, Avith the exception of $29 on ,  account of shortage iu Aveight and  over charges on freight. The contest principally centers on the defendants' counter claim, and the  facts are briefly as follows:  The plaintiff by letter offered 30  cars of hay to the defendants to bo  delivered Avithin six months, and also 7 cars Avhich Avere to be delivered  at once. The price quoted aviis  $10.50 and $10.00 per ton respectively, f. o. b. Chewolah,acceptance to be made Avithin five days.  The acceptance Avassent on October  5th last, and received in Chewelah  October 7th, or the last day of the  term specified. The plaintiff claims  lie did not receiA'e the acceptance  in time'and refused to deliver the  hay, Avhich has since risen iu price  and is uoav worth $18 per ton. The  defendants are suing for $2995 for  damages sustained by the non-delivery of the hay, and the consequent loss of profit between the  quoted price for the hay and the  present market price.  The  plaintiff   admitted  the $29.  shortage aboA'e referred to, and consequently the defendants  immedi-'  ately   started"  on    their    counter  claim.

Mr. Reay  arrived at the camp blindfolded just  as the church-jorvice Avas commencing. He sat blindfolded throughout '  the service. When he was taken  before commandant Delarey his  eyes Avere unbandaged. Delarey  was most Courteous to tho correspondent. He said he deeply regretted that a correspondent had  been killed, and expressed his sympathy with Mr. Lambie's Avidow.  Mr. Reay Avas then escorted to Mr.  Lambie's grave, and the hitter's  watch and other -personal effects  Aveto handed oA-or to him. The escort informed Mr. Reay that the  two republics hud 120,000 men  lighting and were- able to continue  the Avar indefinitely.  Yesterday's retirement of the  western outposts included theAVith-  draAval from Coles Kop and  till the surrounding posts.

The   circumstance   that   mining  does, not il ways realize stock gamblers, hopes is being made manifest  in Toronto and Montreal.    As is invariably the case tho mining industry  alone  is  being  blamed.     The  action of  the management of the  War  E.iglo  mine in  discontinuing  shipment?,  and  thus  shutting  off  dividends, naturally caused a slump  i.i War Eagle stock, and a good deal  is being  said  about  the  losses  in  War Eagle.    There have been gambling losses.    But Avhat about the  gambling   profits   iu   War Eagle?  On  Wednesday  last   War   Eagles  closed in Toronto and Montreal at  something OA'er $1.00.     This does,  not show any actual loss in War  Eagle stock.   It is still sixty cents  above, par, and still maintains an  advance of one hundred  per cent  over Avhat it AA'as put on the market  for.   Up  to date tho War Eagle  mine does not oAve the Eastern investors  one  cent.     To charge the  War Eagle np with gambling losses  on the stock exchange is about as  foolish as  to  holil the eight-hour  laAV responsible for the exhaustion  of its ore reserves.    Yet there are  people foolish enough to do both.  Since Hugh  Sutherland's   newspaper in Nelson has been unable to  secure the repeal of the eight-hour  law, Hugh   Sutherland's mine   in  Boundary has been closed down as  a protest.    Hugh Sutherland might  .haA'e closed down his paper, and  kept the   mine miming,   but this  would be no punishment to the people of Kootenay; so the mines will  e.o=e and the paper Avill continue to  be published, aud thcwhole district  Avill suffer AA'ith'Hugh Sutherland.  Although this is indeed a flight ful  'measure of revenge it is not so far  reaching  as one Avould suppose at  first .sight.   Hugh Sutherland does  not oWn all the niines in Boundary.  . Thorp arc others: they Avill not be  closed  down.     Then   again   Hugh  Sutherland  may   go away    for   a  while.    He might cea^o to read his  Nelson paper.    Then cease to think  that he ])tit the gold into the mountains of Kootenay, or that Kootenay is dependent upon him.   And,  if he has more gold in his  mines  than it Avill cost to take out, he may  come back, or send some one else,  and take it out.  JosErir Maktin seems   bound to  alienate what feAV fi lends ho  has  -   left-by his  spiteful  attacks upon  iinance-mini.'-ter Cotton.    The matters referred to by Joseph   Martin  AA-ere thoroughly A-eiitilatcd in Vancouver many year-, before Martin  came to  thi--   province.    On  three  occasions, since being in  of all the facts-, the people of Vancouver have returned Mr. Cotton as  their  representative.     in   view of  this most people haA'e been content  to drop the matter.    They reason,  that, if there ww* any grave charge  Avhich could be proven tho  flnjinw-inj iiislor,    tho   elector.-,    of  Vancouver   avoiiUI   not-have   continued   to    toturii    him    as   (heir  representative. It may be; true that  Mr. Cotton got into debt  in  Colorado; it may be  true  that  he  avus  eapiased ; it is true that ho  was in  jail in New We->tniUlster  i'or  contempt of court; but all these things  might happen to a man Avithout it  being necessary to submit him  to  the persecution  of every  political  adventurer who happens to find out  AA-hat the majority of the electors  have known  for years.     Tho ex.-  attorney-general  is  evidently embittered against all mankind.     He  knows no chars fcy.    He reasons t hu t  because a man may have taken one  false step ho should forever be denied the right to redeem himself, it  is fortunate that the other member.,  of the legislature diller from  Mr.  Martin iu this respect, aud it is to  bo hoped that they Avill go on  record Avhen the gentleman from  Manitoba presents tho next opportunity.         Mavoh TebtzI-I- of Hamilton, has  been  giving  his   attention   to  the  subject   of   municipal    reform  for  some time back, and, as a result, his  finance committee lias made certain  recommendations Avhich Avill go before the  provincial   legislature   as  proposed amendments to the Municipal   Act.       Strange  to   say the  Hamilton council does not advocate  the  aloli'ion of tho ward  system.  It proposes, to secure  municipal re  form  by lengthening the term of  office for both mayor and aldermen,  the idea being that if the  tennis  lengthened a better class of candidates Avill be secured than is  available under  existing  circumstances.  The   policy   is  to   do   away Avith  ticket',  as  much   as possible, and  foice OA'ery candidate for municipal  honors to stand upon his oavh  bottom.     Should  the  legislature eon-  sent to the proposed change, the  members  of   the  next aldermanic  botird AA'ould  be elected  for three,  tAA'o and one years respectively.  At  the end of  the  first  year the  one  year members Avould be'replaced by  three year men, so that there would  be but a  thiid   of  the  council  to  retire  each   year,   A\ith  every alternate year an off one so far as the  mayoral ty is concerned.  The change  is being favorably commented  upon,  and   it   is   just   possible  that  Hamilton Avill be permitted to give  it a trial  in  the  hope of shutting  out   Aveak   and    undesirable   candidates, ,__   TiiK   sentence  passed   upon  the  burgl-U'-S Sullivan and  Gannon, by  Mr. justice Martin, should' have a  salutorj'   effect    upon   the    other  criminals who are at  present making   Nelson     their    headquarters.  Seven years is a considerable portion   of   one's life  to  spend   in  a  Dominion   prison,   and,   AA'ith   tiie  experience of SulliA'an and  Gannon  staring them iu the face, the crooks  that   iufe.-t   Nelson will   probably  seek a new field of operution.,  Fits Wants to Fiffht.

The correspondent of tlio Montreal Daily Herald gives an aeeount  of (l*e engagement at -3.-iiiiy._ide, in  which colonel I'itchpr, a\ itli a force  of Canadians and Qnoenslanders  ca|>tnrcd a Boor laager.    He f-ays :  IL is very diflicttlL to make a successful surprise attack, for as soon  as our ti Oops move tlio Boers tire  informed of the movement by (he  natives. In order to obviate thi%  colonel Pilcher left Belmont yesterday, making a forced march of  twenty-two miles. Guards were  placed upon the native kraals, with  instructions to see that no one left  farmhouses or native huts, while  several times during the night a roll  was called to see that all of the natives    were  still   in  tlieir    proper  place;  Tim  morning, (January  1st) about _.i\: o'clock, colonel Pil-  cher's force arrived abreast of tlio  enemy's position, wliich is called  Bed Sitnnyside, kopjes running west  and south, and some fifteen mile,  from Cook's farm, where we spent  the night.  Cautioned  by their officers,  the  men  kept  the strictest silence  as  they marched towards the west in  the line  of  the kopjes.    "When at  last  they  entered   the   plain they  were    only   four  miles   from    the  enemy.    When  the  kopje  was   in  full view, colonel Pilcher halted his  Hying column.    Captain Barker and  his  company  (Toronto),  with   the  maxims, and the Mounted Infantry,  under captain J.yan, with our maxims,  were   under  captain   Itougo-  mont,nnd wet e to form au independent column, converging upon tho  " enemy':, laager, wliich was situated  at tiie end of the northern spur of  the hill, and to shell him thoroughly,  while the Qiic..i__._aiidc>rs. '-A" com-  pally, under captain  (JhaurcL, "B"  company, under captain   Pin nock,  tho whole under major liicardo and  acting under  colonel   Pilcher,   ad-  ,  vanoed  from   the   south,   sending  strong patrol-, of mounled infantey  to the east.    Our first contact with  the enemy was in the shape of J t  J Joins, who suddenly opened firo upon one of our patrols, under lieutenant   Adie  (Qiuscii-ilnndors.)     Adie  and two men were Avounded by the  Boer  fite.      Butler  (Pte.),   of  the  Qucc_i->lau_lc-!_i, seeing Adie wound  cd, gave up his his horse in order to  carry the lieutenant oat of action.  Another private, whose lior&e had  bolted, came up to help,  but was  shot in the leg, and Butler's horse  was killed.  Meanwhile captain lvjran, who did  splendidly during the diiy, reported  that the veldt lo the right of the  enemy-was eleir, and the guns were  brought within 1500 yards of the  laager, planting two shells within  the laager and among the Boer tents  in five minutes. Tho enemy appeared to bo quite unaware of our  presence until the shells fell among  tliem, and then they lined the kopjes  and opened a hot, well-directed fire  upon the guns, which, however,  proved ineffective.  Then the order was given for captain Barker's men to advance to the  iicLiou. They had behaved splendidly, standing a galling fire with  admirable- patience, and never wasting a single shot. They rushed forward, coming within a thousand  yards of the kopje, and from there  they opened a heavy fire that  that of the enemy was completely  subdued.  Not a shot was thrown away.  Now the practice tit the jbulfcs at  Long Branch, in far away Canada,  came into play, aud tho little tricks  of quick and accurate firing were  tried with great success.  ' There faeemed to be a f-avage glee  running through tiie ranks, and our  nieu were laughing and chaffing  each other under firo. The guns  under captain Atkinson shelled the  Boer position with great accuracy,  -while Ryan and his mounted infantrymen worked completely round  and opened fire upon a few Boots x\eie hidden among the trees.  Meanwhile Pilcher and the Queens-  landers were working steadily up-  upwaidb towards tho position,  adopting Boer tactics and taking  adv.Mituge of everyplace of shelter.  'J'ho-ie taelics disconcerted the  Boers, for they could not see anyone to fire at.   Nevertheless, they  Is now prepared to issue Drafts and  Letters of Credit on., Skaguay, U. S.,  Atlin, B. C, and Dawson City, N. W. T.  kept up a hot fusilade until about  two o'clock, when "B" company, of  the Queenslanders, had .worked  round behind the position, while  "A" company advanced along the  top of the ridge. While they were  advancing tho Boer fire ceased, and  at a few minutes past three o'clock  the enemy hoisted a white flag as a  signal of surrender, and the position  was taken.  Half "C" company (Toronto) moved across the veldt in front of the  guns nnd entered the laager, they  being the first to enter. The enemy  had left in the hands of our men  fourteen tents, three wagons, stores  of rifles, ammunition, saddles and  bt idles, forage and camp equipment. Papers incriminating many  Dutch colonists were found, among  those being some envelopes marked  on Her Majesty's service, which the  newly appointed Landdrost of  Douglas had had the affrontery to  use in absence of his own officially  marked envelopes.  Tlfb whole affair was a complete  success, and reflects credit upon all  concerned. Needless to say, captain Barker feels proud of his Tor-  ontonians, for their staadiness was  equal to that of battle tried  veterans.  Our casualties were: Adie wounded, Jones and MacLeod killed  (Queenslander.s), and two others  killed.  The Boers lost six killed and  twelve wounded.  AN   IMMENSE   EMPIRE.  Pe irson's Weekly.  John Bull's Island home being  rigidly limited, his expansive nature  was forced to expand over the sea,  in far-off lands, wherever his bold  adventiuers could gain a foothold.  And so, bit by bit, our huge Indian  and colonial empire was built up,  until it now covers nearly a fourth  of the earth's sui face, aud includes  probably a fourth of its entire  population. The actual figures are:  Area, 11,200,000 square miles ; population, '100,000,000.'" These figures  aro absolutely without parallel in  the history of the world.  John Bull's commands, then, are  more or less willingly obeyed by a  vast hosi no fewer than 330,000,000  subject people, and this host includes nations aud tribes of almost  every known race on the globe.  Let us take India as the most  conspicuous, and numerically, the  most iniport-iut example. A small  but fit British army of 75,000 men,  aided by a native force under British officers of about twice that uuni-  ' bor, keeps in admirable" order a  teeming population of 300,000,000, a  population equal lo that of all  h.uropo, exclusive of our own 40,-  000,000. India is iu fact a continent  in itself. It contains many districts,  nations and races. The census returns divide tho people on the  basis of language into no less than  1 IS groups., and even then there  were some hundreds of peoples  speaking an "unrecogui-Mible" lan-  gua<rc.  Out of-the 300,000,000-Euglish is  tho customary language of barely  250,000. and the British-born population of India is less than half that  number. There are about 95,000,-  000 speaking Hindi, 30,000,000 Bengali, 25,000,000 Teluga, 20,000,000  Mt.hratti, 18,000,000 Punjabi, and  10,000,000 Tamil. Ou the basis of  religion, considerably over 200,000,-  aro Hindoos, (50,000,000 Mohammedans, 7,000,000 or 8,000,000 Buddhists, aud only 2,500,000 or 3,000,000  Christians, and as such more favorably disposed toward their Christian rulers than the rest.  In the Straits Settlements a few  Britons keep tlieir eye on 250,000  Malay., the same number of Chinese  and some 55,000 Kast Indians. In  Hongkong and Kowluuover 250,000  Chiiiepe are British subjects. The  ''spicy breezes" of Ceylon are inhaled  in settled peace and comfort by  Mr. Thomas Atkins--the 2,000,000  Cingalese, 1,000,000 Tamils, 250,000  Moor.-, aud some 10,000 Malays never  disturb his serenity. In Borneo  the Dyaks and other warlike Malays  have been and may be troublesome,  but tho unrivalled tact aud calm  courage of British colonial administration may be entrusted to  smooth down any and every disturbance of the peace.  The famous bay of the south side  of the Gulf of Peohili, responsible  for the feeble-st and most widely  spread diplomacy of modern times  -Woi-IIai-Wei���is to be garrisoned  by a British officered Chinese regiment, who -"tin at any rate be  trusted to keep their fellow pigtails  in order.  The African command of John  Bull is a particularly heavy burden,  and has cost him millions in money  and thousands in men. Besides  1,500,000 blacks in Cape Colony and  its dependencies, there are nearly  740,000 Zulu Kaffirs iu Natal: 250,-  000 Basutos, about 500,000 Mata-  beles and Mashonas, with perhaps  200,000 Bechuanas, in Southern.  Rhodesia; 050,000 Barotses and  other Bantus in Northern Rhodesia,  besides the 850,000 negroes of the  Nyassaland or . British Central  Africa Protectorate. Between the  Zambesi and Tanganyika less than  300 British, about the same number  of Sikh soldiers, and a small native  force under British officers "administer" tho homeland of 1,500,000  blacks.  South of the Zambesi and including the Boers of the Transvaal and  Free State, the entire white  population is A'ery small  in  comparison  with the  number  of blacks.    Farther north,  on  the east coast, in  British  East Africa  and  Uganda.  John has to keep the peace among  2,500,000 truculent tribes; and  on  the other side of the  continent his  Niger coast protectorate  and territories on the east side of the great  river put upon his  broad shoulders  the  immensely  heavier  burden of  controlling some 30,000,000 negroes,  mostly    warlike      Mohammedans,  trained   fighters,  with   a military  organization of high efficiency.  British governors���not long lived  in those "white men's graves"���  have also the care of 1,500,000 negroes on the Gold Coast, 3,000,000 in  Lagos, some 50,000 on the Gambia,  and 75,000 in Sierra Leone.  What a task the destruction of  the daring dervishes of the Soudan  was! With less skill or valor  Omdurman might have been another  Adowa. In Egypt itself, Englishmen have done wondei s, and, above  all, have made men of timorous  serfs. Besides the Soudanese, our  officers have also to keep well in  hand the Somali coast and the Aden  CHAIRS (?)  Well, rather.

Press Agent Will Surrender.  New York, February 12.���District attorney Clark of Brooklyn  tonight authorized the statement  that Cecil Leslie, press agent for  the Franklin syndicate, would surrender to the authorities and give  evidence for the state. Leslie was  indicted jointly with Miller in November for conspiracy. He disappeared, and since then his whereabouts have been a mystery. Since  Miller's arrest district attorney  Clark has been in communication  with Mrs. Leslie and this has Anally  resulted in Leslie's agreeing to surrender. "I am convinced," said Mr.  Clark, "that Leslie was not an accomplice, but merely an employee  of the Franklin syndicate. He will  surrender and turn state's evidence.  In consideration of this, the prosecution of him. if any at all be made,  will be slight."  Martinique Officials Upheld.

Minister for the  colonies, M. Decrais, said that when  full particulars had  been  received  the question of the  reorganization  of the administration would  be examined.    M.

Two  great speeches, one in favor of the  pending senate substitute measure  and the other in opposition to it,  were delivered, and both were listened to by the senators with close  attention. The lir&t was-delivered  by Mr. Allison of Iowa, the ranking  member of the financial comiuittee.  Ho had been an attentive listener to  _tho_ _sp_e_yches   delivered on jtlio^  other side of the chamber and in  course of his argument presented  his ant-wer to the points laised  against the ponding senate hill. Mr.  Jones of Nevada declared tlio bill  was vicious and unwarranted as  conferring too great power upon  the national banks and fastening  the country to a gold currency. He  discust-ed the question from an  historical and philosophical point of  view. Tomorrow the senate will  begin tho consideration of the bill  and amendment.- thereto, under the  ten minute rule.
