March on Kiniberley.  lliET River, Orange Free State,  February 11���[Special to the Tribune].���General French, with a cav-  tilry division aiid a strong artillery  detachment, left Sunday morning  for Rambain, 12 miles east of Ens-  lin,.where tlio whole division concentrated. /The next day lie made  a rapid march to the Riet river,  where a party of Boers contested  his passage at Delcil aud Waterfall  drifts. After some hours of shelling French drove the Boers away  and crossed the river.  Yesterday (Tuesday) the column  continued its march to Klip and  sRomdaval drifts on tho Hodder.  fez river, where again a' short engage-  ��� ment ensued, French shelling the  Boers vigorously and forcing a passage. The Boers 'precipitately'" retired,-leaving five laagers  hands of the British,  great quantity of cattle  sheep. The rapidity  march  and  tho  in  the  besides  a  and 2000  of  French's  overwhelming na  ture of his force enabled him, in  in spite of the difficulty of water  j transportation, to thoroughly outwit and bitriiri.se tlio Boers. The  British casualties were Might.  Colonel lianna3r, while on his  ' way to Rambain, encountered 500  Boers with two guns holding a  kopje commanding the valley leading to tho drift. Fighting Listed  : all day, the Boers disappearing  during the night. Thiitecu nieu,  including one officer, were made  prisoners. They were captured  treacherously during the fight.  London, February Ki.���7:1-1 p.m.  ���[Special to the Tribune.)���The  war office makes public a dispatch  from lord Roberts, saying:  .LvconsDALiJ,  Februiiiy 1(5.���The  following was received from French  this  morning: "J  have  completely  dispersed   the    enemy    from    the  southern  side  of Kimberley from  Alexanders-foiltcin to Olipliantsfon-  tein, and am now going' to  occupy  ..their   grounds.      1   have  captured  the enemy's laager and large  supplies of ammunition.    Our  casualties were about twenty of all ranks.  Kimberley is chceiful and well.''  -  London",   February   Ki:���General  Roberts also sent Iho following dispatch: "JacobaC-i-Ie, February 10. ���.  1 have good reason to believe  that  the  Magersfontein    trencher  have  .been abandoned aud that" the Boers  are endeavoiiug  to  escape.     General French is scouring the country,  north of Kimberley.    One  of general Kelly-Kenny's brigades  of infantry is in pursuit of a Marge Boer  convoy   moving    toward    Bloeni-  t'ontciii.  Outside .IA-'oiisdaI-!-, Orange  Free State, February 13.-���The road  between Modder river and Jaeobs-  dtile is now open. The distance is  only nine miles. The road is available for sending reinforcements and  supplier When the" Boers "evacuated Jacobsdale they weie obliged  io pass over a lidgo where they  afforded  a  splendid  mark for tho  Biitish guns, which_  showered  shrapnel upon the retreating army.  Tho convoy which was attacked at  Riet river had been countermanded,  but the order did not arrive iu time  and the .experience "vvas a very  warm one, though the Boers did  little material damage. As general  French, with tho strengthened  divibion, pushed forward toward  Kimberley, he found the beleaguering Boers deserting tlieir position  at Alexandersfontoin, thus allowing a portion of tho Kimberley garrison to occupy and entrench the  place,  London*, February JT.���The Standard publishes the following dispatch from i)e Aar, dated Thursday at midnight: ''Official news has  been received hero that general  French arrived al Kimberley todoy  nnd dined at the club this evening."  goons was surrounded by some five  hundred Boers and gallantly cut its  way through without losing a man,  but a company of New South Wales  mounted infantry was unfortunately annihilated, most of the  men's bayonets, however, bearing  tho imprint of a sanguinary conflict  with their foes. Colonel Conyng-  ham was shot through the heart at  the outset of the engagement. The  enemy chose the time of the moon's  setting for their onslaught. Out of  five colonial officers only one returned to camp.  "A strategic and concentrative  .move back to Arundel has been decided upon. Our guns from Koles  Kop ha,yo been safely removed, one  maxim having beeu . destroyed to  prevent its falling into the, hands...  of tiie enemy. Nino wounded officers and -thirty-five men were  brought into .the Naauwpoort field  hospital. Our death roll at present  is not known." '  MORE DETAILS OF ADVANCE  WHILE GRONJE  RETREATS  Eoberts May Rest.  London, February 17.���4:15 a.m.  ���Geueral Cronje with a start of a  day or two, is seemingly in full retreat while the cavalry stayed over  night in Kimberley and then pushed  on to get in touch with the retreating enemy. A long Boer wagon  train is moving toward Bloemfontein, followed, presumably, by a  large force of British infantry. In  their hasty departure the Boers  lost quantities of supplies and ammunition.  Military opinion hero is that lord  Roberts will not push far after the  Boois immediately because of the  transport problems and the need-of  rest for the troops. He has to feed  70,000 persons in his army and the  whole Kimberley population. He  must rebuild the railway from  Modeler river down to Kimberley  and re-victual the, latter. General  French lost a few men only in ac-.  tion but the forced inarches and  heat have probably nfade many ill,  and numbers of lemounts must be  provided. Lord Roberts has  wrought a genuine preliminary success and the^ impression is that he  h.is done enough for the present.  lie will need to prepare for another  .stroke.  All  over England tonight there  have been evidences of public joy,  those   who   read    the    news  Sent by Roberts.  London, February. 10���9.30 p. m.  ���The following dispatch from general Roberts fills the gap in the earlier dispatches:  " Modder River, February 10.���  The sixth division left Waterfall  drift early yesterday morning and  marched here, going on the same  evening to Rondevaldre to hold the  crossing of the Modder river and  leave general French free to act.  Shortly after arriving here the  mounted infantry! visited Jacobs-  dale and found it full of women  and children, with four of our  wounded men doing well. On the  way back the mounted infantry  was attacked and nine men were  wounded. Colonel Henry aud major Mitchell and ten men were missing. Both officers were subsequently found . at Jacobsdale  slightly wounded.  "The cavalry division is moving in  a northerly direction and has apparently reduced the pressure on  Kimberley, as Kekewich signals the  enemy has abandoned Alexanders-  fontein aud that he has occupied it.  French has advanced as far as  Abonsdam with slight losses and is  pushing on the posts which are being held by mounted infantry."  "' General Roberts adds: "Clements,  having been pressed by the Boers,  has retired to Arundel to cover  Naauwport."  The war office points out that  the word "hero" in the above despatch means some point of the  Modder river other than the Modder  river station.  London, February 10.���11 p.m.���  The war office has just issued the  following from lord Roberts:  "Jacobsdale, February >10.���7 p.m.���  Much gratified ou arriving here to  find admirable hospital arrangements made by the German ambulance corps under doctors Kaettner  aud Hildebrand, who with their  staffs 'have shown the greatest  kindness to our wounded, as they  have to the Boer wounded.

London, February 17.���The Daily  Telegraph has the following dispatch from Naauwpoort dated February 13th and delayed in transmission: "Very severe fighting occurred on both our flanks near  Rensburg. The enemy gieatly outnumbered our troops, being about  four thousand in number. They  attacked the Worcestershire regiment on their hill and with desperate determination charged home,  only to experience such a heavy  Maxim and liflo fire from our men  that the death roll of the enemy  must have been considerable.  "A patrol of the InniskilHng Dm-  By the British.  Outside Jac.obsda.-I_, Orange  Free State, Thursday, Feb. 13.���  (Special to Tho Tribune.)���Jacobs-  dale is now in possession of tho  British. Yesterday a small cavalry  patrol entered the place and found  it full ofjwounded, including several  British from Rensburg. The place  was occupied by only a small force,  which fell back before tlio patrol,  after a series of small skirmishes.  A battery of artillery shelled  tho environs and drove out the last  of the Boers.  Early this morning a large force of  Boors from Colesburg with ten  guns attacked a convoy of 200  wagons at Riet River, shelling vigorously and doing damage, but a  strong reinforcement has been sent  hence and it is hoped they will  bring the whole convoy in safely.  French's division seized three  drifts on Modder river. ��� At the  third drift the Boers were quite  strongly entrenched. French bombarded them and drove them off.  Today he moved rapidly in the  direction of Kimberley. The Boers  have left Alexandersfontem which  i he British occupy. Roberts is iu  excellent health and spirits. Hardship and rapid marching appear to  agree with the whole army, who  are iu splendid spirits under the  leadership of "Bobs."  If Disappointed.  London,   Feb/ 10.���The   correspondent of the Associated Press at  Ladysmith, from   which   place lie  escaped February 10th' and arrived  at  Durban   February  lith, sends  the following written before he left  Ladysmith:     "Since    ihe    furious  cannonade in the early part of the  week quietness has reigned.   The  hills on which the  relief column's  lyddite shells wore bursting in hundreds a few days   previously are  now only occupied by grazing cattle.    Much  disapx-bintmout is  felt  at-the  non-appearance  of  geueral  Buller as from the severity of the  fight every heart was glowing with  hope      aud      anxiety      at      the  prospect of immediate relief,  not  that   we     are     at     all    in    the  bines,   for   everyone, capable    of  shouldering a rifle is confident of  our   ability    to    hold    the   town  against   any force  the Boers are  capable of putting in tho field. The  continued diet of horse and mule  flesh,is getting somewhat monotonous, although .the lical th  of the  camp, taking everything into consideration, is better  than   it  could  be expected.  The escape of the Associated  Press correspondent wa?. most adventurous and arduous. Leaving  Ladysmith on.the night* of February 1st guided by a native, he soon  encountered a Boer xiatrol, who  fired upon him. Escajiing the*  patrol, he crawled 22 miles over  the roughest and stoniest paths,  hiding in native huts and kraals  during the day and proceeding at night. Once a Boer  patrol came to the door of the hut  where he was hiding under blankets. He swam tho Tugela and  reached Chieveley the morning of  February 13th, where he took a  train for Durban.  The correspondent says that except for two slight attacks of fever,  which never incax.acitated him, sir  George White, the British commander in Ladysmith, has been in  excellent health throughout the  siege. The number of people  within the British lines, including  the entombed camp, is 17,000, all of  them troops cxeex_t 3000 civilians  Hockey Matches.  Rossland, February 10.���[Special  to the Tribune.]���The hockey match  between the Nelson Lacrosse-  Hockey Club and the Victorias of  Rossland was won by the latter by  4 games to-3 after a very fiercely  contested game.

At 11 o'clock this forenoon a  match iu the junior championship  competition was xjlayed between  the I. X. L.'s of Rossland fand the  Nelson Juniors and was won easily  by the former by'a score of 7 to 3.  The match between the Revelstoke and Boundary hockey teams  (seniors) was a stubbornly contested  aud fast game, resulting in a victory for Boundary by a score of 0  to 1. It was played this afternoon  commencing at 3:30.  The prospector's 200-yard race  was.won by R. S. Lyon wi��h Henry  Jacobson second.  The fancy skating for amateurs  was won by George A.

The Smallpox Situation,  The smallpox situation' in Nelson  is   unaltered  today.     D.^ Clayton,  the patient, is,under the care of Dr.  McLennan, who has been appointed  quarantine officer.    The  physician,  who has had considerable experience of the disease in   Montreal,  states that the case is an average  one, inclining to be mild.    A pest  house was erected yesterday on the  new city-iiark by- the���Nolson���Saw-  & Planing  Mills   Company.     The  building is 21x40 aud contains two  apartments.    The passengers who  came in  on  the   Moyie Thursday  night   were   taken, back    to   tho  steamer   next    morning,'  and   the  rooms   they   had    occupied   were  thoroughly  fumigated   under    the  direction of Dr. McLennan.   Clayton was taken  to  tho  pest  house,  and every precaution taken to disinfect    his  quarters   aboard  ship,  The Moyic's passengers are  closely  quarantined, and  have   submitted,  quietly to  the   ordeal    though  a  strong   protest was   ruined   when  Clayton aviis left aboard all day, on  the ground that they  Avere  needlessly exposed  to infection.   Two  officers are doing  sentry  duty  on  the wharf to see  that  none  of the  passengers leave tbe boat.  Tried Yesterday.  Three cases of exceptional interest to prospectors aud  mining men  were   tried   yesterday ��� before  Mr.  Justice   Martin.     In   the   case   of  Sloan   a*s.   Gormley    the   plaintiff  brought   action for a   declaration  that  he  had a xiartncrship in the  defendant's  interest in  the  Black  Prince aud Dundas No. 2,  two Avell  knoAvn claims near Slocan City.    It  appears that  Gormley  had a grubstake agreement AArith a  x>rosx_ector  named  Sehomberg,  and   that  this  agreement ran out on October 25th,  1S95.    Sloan claimed that he  AA'as  in with Gormley on this agreement,  though  the latter   denies  he had  any share in it.    It transpired that  while this agreement was in force  Sehomberg  discovered the  ground  noAV covered  by the Black Prince,  but it was already staked.    Subsequently   the   claim   ran   out,  and  Sehomberg   restaked   it    under   a  fresh agreement with Gormley. The  judge     held      that     Schomberg's  discovery of the ground which was  was   afterwards   included   iu   the  Black  Prince, but  which  AA-as  not  vacant at the time of its discovery,  was not the discoA'ery of a mineral  claim as contemplated by the agreement.    Judgment  Avas accordingly  entered for the  defendant.    BoAves  & Stuart appeared for the x>laintiff  aud Galliher k Wilsou for the defendant.  The case of Blundell ,v. Muir fol-  loAA'ed and this involved a x>oint of  mining huv which Avas brought before tiie courts for the first time.  Blunclell Avas the recorded owner of  the Sx>eculator< claim on Morning  mountain, but did no work on it  last year, and Muir staked it as the  Daphne Avhen it ran out. It also  api.ears that Muir did an assessment AA'ork on it ou his oavii account,  and Blundell recorded this as his  own and got a certificate' of-Avoik.  - Blundellj brought an'action for  trespass and for ^declaration that  .the .-Speculator A\Tas a good claim,as  against the Daphne, lie Avas, how-'  ever, nonsuited. BoAA'es & Stuart  ax-i-caied for the lilaintiff and Galliher k Wilson for tiie defendant.  Another case of interest to pros-  pectois Avas Crutchfleld a*s Ilar-  botftle. The evidence showed that  W. T. Beadles located the May Day  ,mineral claim on May 1st, 1897,  ainLou May 0th transferred it to  G.'F. Harbottle, Avho, however, did  not record his bill of sale until  April 20tb, 181)8. - On July 23i-d,  1807, Beadles' license lapsed, and  on October 30th, 1897, the lilaintiff  restaked the claim as the Equaliser,  and is now asking for a declaration  that his location is good as against  the May Day.  The arguments of counsel lasted  ���until after 0 p. m., his lordship resetting judgment. Galliher k Wilson Avere for the plaintiff and Taylor k Hannington i'or defendant.  placed on the same footing as the  wholesalers. In view of this he  states that he Avill purchase through  local houses, which will be welcome  news indeed.  The first installment of the Stewart plant has ariived at the C.P.R.  depot. It consists of one car of  horses, and six cars of scrapers,  xalows, pi��.'ks, sho\Tels, cami_ outfits,  tents, etc. Mr. Stewart states that  there will be twenty more cars in  during the next seven days.  Asked as to the probable date of  starting Avork Mr. SteAvart remarked, "I ani endeavoring to con-  elude arrangements to have several  camps started on the line of the  road by Monday night. This will  ..practically be the commencement  of operations AArhieh will be continued without further delay.  A. F. Proctor, C. P. R. engineer,  Avent OA'er the line yesterday Avith  Mr..SteAArart and spent the day betAveen here and Balfour. Returning they had decided to take the  Moyie but gave-up the idea" at the  last moment, and are now thanking  XJrovidence for the latter, fact. One  of the men from Holden's camp at  Nine Mile came doAvn in the Moyie,  and is now settling doAvn to a fourteen days' sojourn in close quarantine.  WHOLESALERS ARE HOPING  WORK TO BE RESUMED ON  FIRST SUB-CONTRACT HAS  Two Companies Missing.  London, February 17.--The correspondent of the Mail at Naamy-  X-Oort, telegraphing Wednesday and  describing the evacuation of Rensburg, says: "Two eomx-anies of the  Wiltshire regiment in Avithdrawing  from Kloof camp lost their Avay nnd  are missing. Their Avhoicabouts,  however, is x>rofcty welt knoAvn ami  they AA'ill probably be relieved tonight. The Boer lo-se.s around  Colesburg on Monday aro reported  to have been extremely heavy."  Offers to Settle.  Mr. Stinson, xn'opriotor of tiie defunct private bank of Hamilton, has  offered dex_o.sitors all of his American real estate as security and urges  them not to press for settlement.  Been Awarded.  - John McMartin is the first of the  local contractors' to secure a slice of  the work ou the Balfour extension.  Last night he concluded arrangements Avith J, W. Stewart to construct the two miles of the road  from Five mile Point east. Other  -.iib'i'ontract.-. Avill doubtless be let  in a day or two, although Mr.  Stewart anticipates doing a portion of the Avork himself. The section Avhich Mr. McMartin has secured i.s , rock Avork throughout.  The fii.st six miles of the road at  the Balfour end is earth-Avork only  and this Mr. Stewart reserves for  himself.  An imxiortalit member of the  Stew-art staff arrived in Nelson  ye . terday in the person of D. MeLeod of Trail, i-urchasiiig agent.  His department include.* all the  buying of supplies for men and  animals, and is perhaps the most  important of all from a local stand-  X>oint. Air. MeLeod AA'ill buy during  construction axiproximately $75,000  Avorth of of goods Avhich can bo  supplied by Nelson Avholesale men,  and the prospect is that thcA' Avill  get the bulk of it. The C. P. It. has  made ib a practice heretofore of  granting a sjjecial rate to contractor., as a result of Avhich they Avere  in a xiositiou to purchase at a distance to better advantage than  local men, owing to the concession  in freight rate.-. At the present  juncture no special rate has been  conceded to Mr, Stewart and he is  The Whitewater Group.  J. F. C.

The syndicate  now   controls  four  prox>er-  ties,     namely     the     Whitewater,  Midas, Columbia  and Victoria, and  the total  purchase price  is  nearly  $75,000.    A "substantial  cash  payment- is   to be   made today, "and  other-payments fall due in -March,,  April and May, the final  amount  being  payable  on  July   9th.1   The  Whitewater vein Jias been traced  through  the  Midas and  Columbia  claims but shows up richest ou  the  former.  The Victoria claim, though  it xx-sscsses promising surface sIioav-  ings, AA'as acquired chiefly for a mill  ,site and on account of the excellent  timber  Avith AA'hich  it is  covered,.  Work on the property Avill be commenced  on Monday, aiid development Avill be vigorously prosecuted.  An   order for   machinery Avill  be  X_ laced shortly, and by July  there  will be a 10- stamp mill on the pro-  X.erty unless something very uufor-  seen occurs.  The vendors of the WJhitcAvater  are W. J. Goepel and M. S. Davys,  of the Columbia, W. J. Goexiel and  A. J. Marks, of the Midas, W. J.  Goepel, M. S.

After another two hours '  of hard fighting it is "reported that  the British retired, Avith colonel  Hemy dangerously wounded. , Colonel Henry Avith his servant, A\ras  taken to Jacobsdale."

The Miner further adds:    "This one act entitles  *' them to the respect and admira-  " tion  of the  entire   community."  This is getting round a rather sharp  Corner.    When the trouble between  the  miners  and mine-OAvners  first  came \xp, there Avas a difference of  fifty cents   per day between  the  men  and   the  mine-OAvners.     The  mine-owners, acting in concert, and  without, any attentat compromising the mafcteiy posted notices in all  their mines to the effect that, when  the  eight-hour law  came in force,  they would pay Dut three dollars  for the short shift.    It AA'as in the  form of an ultimatum and precipi-  tated the trouble, during the course  of which the Nelson Miner never  lost an opx>ortunity in its systematic attempt to discredit and slander  the members of the miners' unions^  and   tlieir   officers.      During   the  progress of the Avhole light it Avas  never mooted for a moment that  the miners had the slightest claim  for  consideration.     But,   after   a  wasteful conflict,   extending over  several mouths, the leaders of the  opposing forces got together  and  agreed to compromise by meeting  each other half way.   Surely if the  men are now found to be entitled to  " -$8.25 for a shift of eight hours, they  Avere' justified in refusing to perform the same work for $3.    If they  were justified, Iioav does tiie Miner  reconcile its present views with the  execrations, AA'hich day after day it  heaped ux>ou the heads of tho mem-"  bers of the miners' uuions and their  leaders.     So   long as    the ^Nelson  '    Miner could do the Avorking miners  any harm, it did it.   Now, that it is  poweiless  to harm,  it pays them  homage., ^   More or less mystery appears to  surround the resignation of general  -TJutton.

The connection between tho east drift from the bottom of the main shaft to the No. 2  ^/tunnel is completed. Besides giving ample ventilation for the mine  the connection has opened up a fcc-  .ioii of stopiug ground fully 100  feet in length.  It was learned Wednesday that  the deal on the Mountain Chief, in  Myers Creek camp, -was closed.  The representative of tho Montreal  syndicate which purchased the controlling interest in the stock will  shortly be in Greenwood to wind up  matters. Tiie Mountain Chief is  owned by a (Jroenwood company.  The annual meeting of the Cariboo Consolidated Gold Mining and  Milling Company was held iu Toronto on the 7th instant. The directors recommended that an addition  of 10 stamps be added to the mill,  and stated that there was ore  enough already blocked out to keep  the mill going for several years.  They decided to change the name of  the corporation to the Cariboo-Mc-  Kinney Milling and Milling Company. Total dividends paid to December 31st, 1899, $109,337.52.  The shaft on the War Eagle, in  Greenwood camp, has reached a  depth of -15 feet. The ore now being taken out is a black hematite  and copper. Captain Shields, the  suuorinteudent,has a force of 12  meii a_ the mine, and is working  three eight hour shifts in the shaft.  The shaft on the Marie claim, the  south extension of the Ruck horn  mine in Deadwood camp, is down a  depth of eighteen feet. The ore encountered is a calcite with iron  pyrites and copper. Harry Shallen-  berger is the owner.  Eight car loads of ore have already been sent from the Winnipeg  mine, in Wellington camp, to the  Trail smelter. A ninth is now being loaded at Hartford Junction.  Duncan Mcintosh, president of the  Winnipeg Mining; .Company says  that the smelter returns were most  satisfactory.

These  messages were repeated from post  to post, and reached the Boer headquarters on the Tugela river in two  or three days, and this had been going on for some time since the outbreak of the war. The keeper  eventually confessed that' he Was  paid $300 for each telegram and before beginning his operations had  received $3500 on account. His  guilt was proved by an examination  of his account at the Transvaal  National Bank, which has a branch  at Durban, and: which paid him the  money. He was a full-bred Eng-  lishmani'sixty years old, and- had  been employed in the'lighthouse for  a long time.

Captain Reynolds recognised him.  ��*'He turned in surprise and looked at me when I spoke to him," says  the officer. " Do you know me ? " I  asked of Miller.  "'I am captain Reynolds of  Brooklyn," I told him.  "He did not seem much to care.  'I'm willing to go back,' he said.  'I'm tired of being away aud want  to see my wife and babies.'"

Mail Orders Promptly Forwarded  CITY LOCAL NEWS  W. II. Warren of Nelson has  transferred to J. T. Holden also of  Nelson, a half interest in the Blue  J_iy and Humming Bird mineral  claims. The properties are located  on the west slope of Morning mountain, adjoining Sandy creek. The  consideration stipulated in the  transfer was $200.  The remains of the late Mrs.  William G. Hanna, the victim of  the fatality on the Athabasca road,  were taken by the bereaved husband to Cold Springs, Minnesota,  by the Nelson and Fort Sheppard  road this morning. Interment will  be made at Cold Springs, where  Mrs. Hanna was born aud from  whence she came to Nelson four  years ago on their marriage.  Considerable friendly rivalry exists between the curling rinks skipped by W. Richardson and G.  Steele, the players being most  evenly balanced. A test match  was curled the other evening for a  box of "Royal Seals" donated for  the event by T.J. Sims and the  outcome was as-follows : Dr. Armstrong, P.. E. Wilson, H.D.Hume,  W. Richardson,skip���9; Joe-Thompson, J. F. Bradley, T. W. Huston,  G. Steele, skip���7; II. D. Hume has  offered another; box of cigars for  competition and the rinks will meet  again ou Monday night.  Nelson may have a new hospital  iii the immediate future if Dr.  Frank Ewing concludes to build  one to accommodate possible  patients among the workmen on  the Balfour extension. When in  charge of the Nelson & Bedlington  road Dr. Ewing had five hospitals  in operation along the line, and  while acting in a similar capacity  on construction of tho Robson &  Pentieton, he established three hospitals along the line. Dr. Ewing is  going into the matter now and will  disclose his intentions shortly."  Sullivan, Gannon and Burns,'the  three men ticketed for the penitentiary at New Westminster, will  probably bo taken away from the  provincial jail ou Monday by chief  Bullock-Webster. Sullivan's wound  is healing nicely and he can travel  without danger. He will carry the  leaden pellet away as a souvenir of  his experiences in Nelson.  Nelson wholesale men are inore  than pleased over the settlement of  the labor troubles at Sandon, and  the effect of the adjustment has already been felt hero by various  wholesale houses in the shape of unexpected and substantial orders.  The influx of,miners to the district  has started in good shape and the  C. P. R. has reaped its share of the  harvest iu fares.  In the case of Jones vs. Davenport in the supreme court yesterday, the plaintiff was seeking to re-  _cover_ on_a_ jndgment _grantod_in_  Minnesota. The case chiefly turned  on the point whether the 13. C. or  Minnesota statute of limitations  applied, and his lordship reserved  judgment, li. M. Macdonald appeared for the plaintiff and A.  Whealler of Kaslo for defendant.  The cold snap has caused considerable trouble at the Athabasca.  The water conduit froze aud rendered it impossible to supply air to  Iho drills- now working in the drifts.  Twelve or fifteen men were laid oft  yesterday and ab many more are  expected down the hill today.    It  was rumored that a permanent  shut-down, such as several of the  mines in the district have inaugu-  ��� rated, was on the tapis, but E. Nelson Fell, manager of the property,  informs The Tribune that nothing  of the kind is intended and that  the whole crew will recommence  work as soon as the weather moderates sufficiently to thaw out the  pipes.  An interesting point has arisen  in connection with the policing of  the Balfour extension while construction is in progress. When the  Crow's Nest road was under way  members of the mounted police  were stationed at the various  camps, aud the opinion is expressed  in some quarters that a similar  course will be adopted on the Balfour road. On the other hand it is  argued that no mounted police were  on duty on the Robson & Pentieton  construction, aud that as the Balfour road is comparatively short  the police work will be left in the  hands of the provincial force, which  is amply equipped to handle the  business.  '  A crust of ice four inches thick  was the proposition which the  navigation officials had to face yesterday'morning.- Tho ice breaker  was requisitioned and with- the  steamer Kokanee supplying the  motive power, a channel was  opened through which the boats  passed without difficulty. Navigation was delayed somewhat as the  steamers required to exercise considerable caution in threading the  chaunel.  Dr. McGuigani one of Vancouver's  best known aldermen, has been  spending a few days in Nelson with  his brother-in-law, Mr. Fife.  The case of Bigelow a*s. LaBau  was postponed yesterday morning  as the doctor was called away on  professional busines:'  <  F. R. Stewart returned to the  coast yesterday, but is expected  back .hi Nelson shortly. He has assumed the management of F. R.  Stewart k Co.'s business at this  point aud will make his headquarters here permanently.  T. J. Sims, secretary United Charities organization, has "requested  The Tribune to acknowledge the  receipt by him of checks from J. H.  Bowes aud Beer Brothers to be devoted to the work of tho organization: _ As has already been stated,  the society has under its care several men whose cases arc really deserving and contributions to the  funds can be placed where they will  accomplish the maximum amount  good.  * The Nelson ladies' hoekoy team is  to play at Rossland today if nothing arises to disturb tho arrangements concluded.' The te..m will  lack the assistance of Miss MeDer-  mid, who sprained her ankle while  skating at the rink tho other night.  Dr. Simon J. Tunstall of Vancouver, was in the city yesterday.  He is a prominent member of the  masonic order, and was en-route to  Rossland to attend a meeting of  the brethren at that point.  Any persons disposed to contribute literature to the passengers  and crew of .the steamer Moyie, can  leave the same at the C.P.R. ticket  office. There are all told about  twenty-five passengers, in addition  to the crew, on board the steamer,  and as they are likely to remain in  "qnarantine_for_ten "days they will-  appreciate reading matter.  Conductor Archie Leitch, who has  the passenger run on tho Canadian  Pacific between Brandon and Moose  Jaw, is among those quarantined on  the steamer Moyie.  F. W. Cameron, of the C. P. R.  telegraph staff, is the patentee of a  most iugenious fountain pen nib,  on which he lias secured a patent  in tho United States, aud for which  a Canadian patent is pending.

Although the school was  started so recently, there are already 80 pupils on the school roll.  The average daily attendance during this week has been GO.  W. H. Bullock-Webster, chief of  the provincial police, arrived, in  Nelson last week after a two  mouths vacation in Somersetshire,  England. He1 was accompanied by  his brother, Edward Bullock-Webster of Keremer, B. C. Mr. Webster states that'''half the people one  meets in London are in mourning,  and that the Avar is taken far more  seriously in England than is the  case on this side of the water. The  British troops march down to the  transports with grim, set faces,  while the Canadian contingent  went off with a smile* aud a jest.  This he attributes to the fact that  the realities of war aro better  understood iu England than here.  A meeting.of the directors of the  general hospital took place yesterday, at which routine business only  was transacted. On March 13th  the annual meeting of the hospital  society takes place. . The feature of  this meeting will be the election of  six directors to take, the places of  the gentlemen who. retire after  completing their two years' term at  the board. The retiring members  are W. A. Jowett, John Hamilton,  D. McArthur, A. G. Shaw, C. E.  Miller and F. W.*Swannell.
