 DAILY  EDITION   BY  MAIL  FIVE  DOLLARS A YEAR  WEEKLY EDITION  BY MAIL  TWO  DOLLARS A YEAR  EIGHTH  YEAR  NELSON:  TUESDAY MORNING, FEBRUARY 20, 1900.  PRICE FIVE CENTS.  KOOTENAY  RECEIVES T  Moro Members.  Vktokia, February 10.- [Special  to tlio Tribune.]--Tho redistribution bill was laid on the table this  afternoon. The changes ib proposes  are as follows:  West Kootenay is  to   have  six  members  in place of four, the  ridings   being    Revelstoke,   Lardcau,  Slocan,   Kaslo,   Nelson   and   Ross-  laud.      Boundary    district   is   ic-  moved   from   Kootonay  for   electoral   purpose^    and    attached     to  Yale, which '-will   have   four mem-  bet!-in place   oi'  thieo, the   tidings  being north, west, south  and  east  respectively.   The -whole of Lillooet  ..'.vill return one member- instead  of  one for east and west as at present.  Cariboo is divided into   north and  ��� south   riding?, each   returning  one,  i member, instead of tho  'whole  dis-  . trict  returning two.      Tho   above  are "the only changes on  the  mainland.    On  the  Island a member is  taken  -from   Esquimalt,  and    the  three constituencies  of North and  South Victoria and  Cowichan  are  rearranged as only two constituencies,   Samuel,   and   Cowich.in   i es-  pcctively.  ' Apart from the merits or otherwise of the new airangenicnt, it is  |.interesting to note that each uf the  two constituencies of Lillooet and  l_.-rniiiii.il-, depi ivod of a member,  is represented by a bolter, while  I'tlio tiuce Island constituencies, now  made into two, each returned an  opposition member.  ner's motion as a bluff he refused  to be bluffed. Semlin and Henderson  both contended that McKechuie  had not violated the spirit of  the law, a significant indication  tion that they are not prepared to  hold that he has obeyed the letter.  Turner's motion for adjournment  based ou this was voted down, for  of course Joe Martin as a party to  McKechnie's proceedings, would  not vote agaiust him, and Prentice,  since the house voted him out of  his scrape, could not round on another member. The house sat only  two hours today. Tomorrow the  governor's message transmitting  the Redistribution Bill comes up  the first thing. Irving has a notice  of motion to indemnify McKechnie  against any penalty he may have  incurred.  Turner brings; forward another  want of confidence on a motion  based on the cancellation of only  two of the four electoral lists authorized by last session's act to be  cancelled in the leccss.

He  spent most of tho time in England,  having been summoned there by  the illness of Mrs. Milburn, who is  spending the winter near'their two  sons at Oxford.  In speaking of the attitude of the  English people in tho present war,  Mr. Milburn says :   "I do not know  that I ever  felt  such  respect for  people as was caused by the way in  which    the    whole 'matter   was  'taken     by     the     people     there.  There  was  no  attempt to  belittle  the reverses in  South  Africa.    All  you could see on every side was a  quiet, glim determination that the  matter should  be carried  through  to a .succc_?ful  i^suo.     Over   and  over again 1 heard it said r by  men  that, harrow ing as the  experience  wa.s,   ihoy   believed    the    results,  ap.ut from South Africa, would be  of tiie greatest lasting benefit.  One  reason named was the drawing together of the mother country  and  tho colonies, and the consciousness  growing out of ifc^of an  imperial  unity. There was little doubt with  the military authorities that it was  a groat event that the men  from  the army  and  men  from   Canada,  Now Zealand  and Australia  wore'  all comprised in the same army and  fighting side by side.  "What was impressive was the  utter absence of any attempt to  minimize or explain away what had  happened. From my observation  there is simply an unlimited supply  of men who have served in the  vohinteeis and who are anxious to  go. There is not the least doubt  thai if the war takes 250,000 moro  men they can bo had. and that it  will be carried through to a finish.  '��� There is no jippi'clionsion of  Ehropban intervention with reference to South African matters.  The only apprehension heard expressed at all was that Russia  might take the opportunity to  draw into close relations with  Afghanistan and near to tho Indian  frontier, but that was not felt very  seriously, 'j do not think that  European intervention would be  tolerated for a moment even if intervention wan broached. England  feels imincihle with  hor (loot and  Important News.  LONDON, February 20.���3:45 a.m.  ���A member of the cabinet told II.  TV. Lucy touight that the war office  had received a telegram announcing  that general Cronje was hopelessly  surrounded.     Mr.   Wyndham was  beset by anxious members of the  house, but would only reply that  the   government's   news   was   extremely satisfactory.     The sole explanation of the government withholding the good uows is that con-  firmation    and    moro   details   are  awaited.    The situation as disclosed  by   correspondents  over  the Free  State border is tantalizing to  the  public expectation. The elementary  facts are that the Boers are trekking eastward towards Bloemfon-  fontein with slow moving baggage  trains and that they a re pursued by  lord Kitchener with general Kelly-  Kenny's division.  General MacDonald with the  Highlanders made a forced inarch  to Koodoosberg Rand ford and on  Sunday marched twenty miles eastward. General French left Kimberley Saturday going east along  the Modder river. Lord Kitchener  is trying to outmarch and to outflank'the Boers, thus checking their  retreat if possible, and driving  them back into the hands of MacDonald and .French.  The war ollice message communicated to Mr. Lucy seems to indicate  that lord Kitchener has either got  ahead of the Boers or is about to  realize his plan and  that  the  war  oflico waits to announce a decisive  result.      Meanwhile    commandant  Delarey with the Boers from Colesburg is hanging on  tho .right flank  of   the   British   pursuing columns  seeking to delay their move, and so  to assist tho wagon trains to escape.  A Daily Mail  correspondent who  was with the British convoy attacked by the Boers  at Reit river ford,  wires:,    "Ultimately   the   Biitish  abandoned   the   convoy, in   order  not to check the advance.    This 200  wagons and 000_tons of stoics falls  into tho hands of the Boors, though  its doubtful if they will be able  to  carry them away."  General Buller has achieved a  real success, seemingly, in capturing the range of hills south of the  Tugela. It makes more feasible  another attempt to relieve Ladysmith. The queen lias sent a direct  message to lord Roberts congratulating him and his troops. General  French and colonel Kekewich have  been acquainted with their pi-o-  motions.  Dr. Leyds at Brussels says the  Freo State troops who were besieging Ladysmith have withdrawn  in order to defend their homes. Tn  this way he accounts for general  Buller's success against the weakened forces. Ho will forego his  projected trip to Rome, ho says, because of "decisive events now taking  place in the theatre of war."  General Roberts' generalship was  couducted-with such secrecy, says a-  telegram from Modder river, that  even the senior officers who took  the sixth division through the preliminaries of the operation, did not  know what they would finally have  to do.  orious services. It recognizes  both length and special fitness , of service, and its  author  claims  that, its provisions  FIREMAN JEFFS' ACCIDENT  are so guarded that only the most  deserving shall receive special recognition, and iu no case be the  creatures of personal or political intervention. The bill gives the  president control of the tenure of  office of heads of staff departments,  and he can by and with the advice  and consent of the senate, make a  new head of a department at any  time when in his opinion the appointment would increase tho efficiency of the department, the officer  relieved being transferred to the  retired list.  HOW THE WILTSHIRES WERE  Lost at Bern-burg.  Lorenzo Mai.qui_.z_, February 19.  ���A correspondent who was with  the Boer forces in the attack on  Rensburg gives further particulars  regarding the capture of the Wilt-  shires. He says: ������Commandant  Petter who arrived first, found two  companies of the Wiltshires and  began attacking theni in the open.  Soon after'he was joined by a body  of Free Staters and together they  drove, the British 'back from the  neighboring kopjes capturing all  but three. It is impossible to say  exactly how many of!the British  were killed and wounded,-but of  the 200 Wiltshiies 142 were captured and of these II were  wounded.  The sufferings of the wounded  from heat and thirst were intense.  The burghers did- their best to  alleviate this and many of _. the  wounded were carried in blankets  to Rensburg. At Rietsfontein the  British rearguard began* shelling,  thus' compelling the (federals to  leave the wounded in order to repulse the attack. A federalKrupp  gun replied effectively to the  British eannonacl<\ _ Tho Boers lost  two killed and four1 wounded. They  now occupy all the Re_?sburg positions formerly occupied by the  British, whose rearguard is nt Rietsfontein with tho federals close  up."  buller breaks Through  The Boer Lines..  Gni--V._i._-V,    Monday    morning,  February 19.���The Boers   lino   of  fortresses is  broken.    The British  have "achieved a decided success in  *_  capturing the enemy's pobitiou on  Monte Cristo. The Boers" however  effectively executed a retreat removing their guns- rind convoy;  wagons. The British had compara-'  tively few casualties.  London, February 20.���-The Chieveley correspondent of tho Daily  News, telegraphing yesterday say*.:  "We now occupy all tho hills  to the right of Colenso, on  this side of the ��� Tugela, including IIlangwau_e,L_whjoh _ the  Bocrft'evacuated last iright(Sunday).  A successful advance and the recapture of the railway may be  expected."    f  An Opportunity Missed.  ( Victoria, February 11).-- [Special  (n (heTribune.]��� There was a full  liouao when the legislature motto-  lay and tho opposition had the  long wis'hod for opportunity of de-  eating tho government, but failed  to u*c their chance. Turner eho.-c  io prcs-Mil amotion attacking ihc  validity of Dr. McKechnie's position  leeaus'j ho hah drawn expenses of  ufiveling between Xanaimo and  Vict iria on duty as president of the  council. McKechnie answered that  no profit has come to him from  these payments and regarding Tur-  tho forces that could bo raised and  made available for home defense.  Tho general feeling among informed  people is* that there is a good understanding between the ruling poweis  in Germany and IJugkind that any  ;-uch intervention shall be discountenanced. Theie are strong  indications, too, that after this ex-  norienee, a thorough investigation  of the military conditions of the  empire will be demanded, and there  will not only be a large increase of  the regular fighting power, both  naval and military, but they will  bo brought np to the highest  efficiency."   Elephants Run Amuck.  London, February 1CJ.���An exciting scene took place at the Crystal Palace, Sydenham, this afternoon. Two largo elephants belonging to the circus lan amuck, killed  their keeper and gored another  man. There was a terrible panic  in the audience attending the concur t in the palace. One animal  was captured after great damago  to property. The other escaped  through the grounds but was captured later. '  *   The Maine Does Good Work.  Nnw York, February If).--Lady  Randolph Churchill has cabled to  Mrs. Cornelia Adair, now in this  city, saying that the American hospital .ship Maine, now at Durban,  Natal, its nearly full of sick and  wounded. Tho cable says that the  most difficult cases are sent to the  hospital ship, owing to tho excellency of her arrangements. The  ship has many .Irish soldiers on  board from the Dublin Fusileers,  and also men from tho 13th, 1-ith  and 18th Hussars, the Rifle Brigade,  the West Yorks and the Fifth  Lancers and among the stretcher  bearers. Lady Churchill says the  staff are all hard at work aud that  all is satisfactory on board the  ship.    Military Promotion Bill.  Washington, February 10.���The  secretary of war has sent to tho  senate and house military committees a draft of a bill'thafc the  department claims greatly strength ens the military system and  remedies the defects developed during the Spanish-American Avar.  The bill was introduced in the  house today by chairman Hull. The  feature of the legislation asked for  provides for one third of the promotions to be made' by selection.  This is to enable the president to  reward specially gallant and merit-  Nothing But Rumors.  London, February 20.���12:30a.m.  ���The war office at midnight announced that it had nothing further  for the public from South Africa.  In the lobbies of the hou��e of com-  moiib last evening, however, it was  rumored that genet nl Ui on jo's army  was surrounded, that general  French had got between the Boer  forces and Bloemfontein. and that  he was only waiting reinforcements  to close in on tho enemy. No confirmation of this iiiinoi is obtainable, although the general idea is  that tho government htm received  important despatches.  Queer Boer Yarn.  Loni-N/.o MaiiqU-J-, February 10.  ���It appears from advices received  here that the loot captured by the  burghers* yesterday near Koffyfon-  tein included over 3000 head of cattle and a number of wagons, eighteen of which were loaded with  provisions intended for the relief of  Kimberley. A number of prisoners  were also taken aud heavy fighting  is reported to day around Kimbcriey  where general Cronje is i-aid to be  holding his own.

Is Remembered. ���  The city fathers performed a decidedly neat act last night by granting fireman Alfred Jeffs, who was  seriously injured a week or two ago  during a brigade practice, the sum  of $150. The grant was made as an  evidence of the city's appreciation  of the department's services and as  an expression of the principle that  the men should not be losers if hurt  in the performance of duty.  Alderman Arthur broached the  subject and mayor Houston heartily  seconded the suggestion, remarking  that a vote of' $15 per week for ��� 10  weeks would fill the bill.  Alderman Hall and Arthur moved that the grant be a lump sum of  $150, which will be tendered Jeffs  as a recompense for the injuries  received by him in the performance  of his duties as a fireman. Alderman McKillop, Wilson and Morrison,  with the mayor supported the  resolution, making its adoption  unanimous.  The Nelson Tramway Company  submitted a lengthy communication  in regard to their  offer to supply  electrical power in the city.     Their  proposition    was   to    deliver   the  power at the municipality's  power  house or at central points throughout the city.   After pointing out  that the  first option  would  necessitate the city putting in motors at  a heavy outlay, the company  pro- j  posed to run a primary line through  the city  replacing the city's poles  with permanent poles, which would  be used by the tramway  company  as well, thereby not increasing  the  number   of   poles   on   the  streets.  From this line they  would be prepared to furnish consumers throughout  the city or to the city.    For  motor power prices would  be made  as low as possible, subject to the  consent of the council.    They could  not     furnish     prices     until > the  next   day and "suggested    a committee to suggest terms. -   _  Alderman Arthur moved that the  letter be received and filed and that  a .special  committee  consisting of  aldermen McKillop,  Morrison  and  the mayor interview the tramway  company.     Mayor Houston begged  to be excused whereupon alderman  Aithur.substituted his  own  name  for that of the mayor.     Alderman  JIall  seconded the  motion and  it  was carried.  W. Hawley offered the city 100  yards of broken rock delivered ou  Baker &tieot at $1.75 per yard. The  letter was received and filed.  Tenders for a roadmaking plant  were received from the Waterous  Engine Works Company, Brantford; Sawyer-Mas'SOy Company,  Hamilton, through II. J. Evans k  Co., agents ; and II. J. Evans k Co.  Aldermen Hall and Morrison  moved that mayor Houston, alder-  M-m McKillop and Arthur boa committee to report on the tenders,  with power to act.  On motion of uldermen_IIall and  McKillop an a^es^ment was authorised and the return of the rolls  fixed for April 30th.  Aldermen Wilson and Arthur  moved that the^as.scssor be requited  to take a census, and ascertain how  many children there are between  the ages of .-in: and 10 years.  The further consideration of bylaw 03, to determine the fire limits,  building regulation-, etc., was gone-J  into. Tho council resolved into  commit lee of the whole with alderman Morrison in the chair, Tho  committee started tit clause 17 and  after an hour's .struggle worked  through to the concluding clause,  No. 30. The bylaw' will be taken  up at the next meeting of the  council.  Tho council adjourned lo Thursday night.  CITY   LOCAL   NEWS.  Tho (J. P.

There has been for some years past a considerable disputation in progress in Ottawa as lo  whether day labor or contract labor is the most  -i-lv..ii.a_feuiis to the city. During the past year  a considerable quantity of work was done upon  the streets, and all by day labor, and it has been  demonstrated that the day labor system is the  most economic il for the taxpayers. The wages  paid for nine hours' work was IS cents per hour,  while those working under the contract s.stem  were paid but ]_���_ coats per day of ten hours.  Much credit for tliis state of allairs was given to  the retiring chairman of;the boanlj of works,  -'tiiics Davidson,and assistant city engineer ICer,  .on of ill*. ICer, formerly of Brantford, Ontario,  and for some lime a resident of this city; but now  in tho upper country, and a nephew, by marriage, of chief enginoorPoterson, of tho C. P. It.  The above appears in the Vancouver World, of Saturday, February 17th, and is of interest in view  of the difference of opinion which  exists among the members of the  city council upon the subject of performing municipal work. It goes  to show that there is at least room  for an honest difference of opinion ;  that because one-half of the present  council are opposed to building the  city wharf by contract it does hot  follow that they are dishonest.  The experience of the city of Ottawa, which is probably as extensive as that of Nelson, is that day  labor is the most economical; that  under it, after paying a higher rate  of wages for a shorter day's work  thau required under contracts, better results were obtained. So far  it has not been .suggested that the  demonstration of this economic fact  has laid the mayor and aldermen of  the city of Ottawa open to the  charge of dishonesty; nor has it  been shown that the contractors of  Ottawa aro less capable than the  contractors of Nelson. What hidden stores of ^knowledge does the  _ Nelson Miner possess?      " ��� '���  CuAiUiES Hii-IA'RK, president of  Nelson Saw ..& Planing .Mills, has  found it necessary to raise a protest  against the,Nelson Miner's slanders.  Mr. Hillyer may protest, but if he  expects    auy  modification    in  the  Miner'.*, vilification he will bodisap-  pointed.    The writer of the insinuations in the Miner knows they are  nob true; but by persistently repeating them he hopes to deceive  some   people -into   believing.   No  amount of reasoning or explanation  will restrain a dog from returning  to its vomit.  but it declines to send it unless under a special rate. No single newspaper is able to effectively protest;  bub collectively they could make  their inlluence felb and force tho  telegraph company into delivering  the goods which it agrees to deliver  in an Associated Press news service.  Surely this is common ground for  the pressmen of the province.  The Settlement Postponed.  St. Johns, Newfoundland, February 18.���The speech of the governor, sir Hugh McCallam, at the  opening of the Newfoundlad legislature tomorrow, will intimate that  the session lias been called at the  request of the Imperial government, to renew the modus vivendi  on the treaty coast so that French  fishermen may be enabled to prepare for the summer's operations  without delay. The reply of the  legislature will declare the colony's  loyalty, and its readiness to assist  the mother country in the present  crisis by enactiug the desired measure. At the same time it will express a hope that the near future  will see a final settlement of the  long standing controversy.  An American Steamer Seized.  Port Elizabeth, February 17.���  The British steamer Sabine,.captain  Taylor, from New York, January  4th, with a miscellaneous cargo, has  been seized by the British gunboat  Thrush, and brought to Delagoa  bay, on suspicion of having on  board articles contraband of war.  Before the Sabine sailed from New  York it was rumored that she had  on board a large quantity of provisions, arms, ammunition, army  blankets, arid general supplies, but  no confirmation of the rumor could  be obtained.  with ��8700. The business of the  bank has huproved, and whereas on  December 31st, 1S0S, ,the securities  held* were valued at ��1S2,000, they  are now worth nearly ��219,000, but,  of course, as* there is more doing,  the specie at branches, and cash are  somewhat less. The amount, viz.,  ��GS3,000, in proportion to liabilities,  is in tho ratio of over 25 per cent,  and is another favorable feature.  Australian Heroes.

All   that  is  noce.sf.ary is to draw tlio newspaper  men together.   J f this could be done  it is safe to say that much advan-  *  tage  would   accrue  to   tho  newspaper men as well as to their readers.    There  is  no reason why the  newspaper men of British Columbia  should continue to prey.upon each  other.    This weakens all, aud makes  them less able to resist the pi-easuro  of the political machine.   The remedy is for newspaper men to make a  common  cause  againsc  their common enemy.
