FIVE  CENTS.  JAMIESON   RAID   ENQUIRY  Brought  Up  Again.  London, Kob. 20.���Tlio house oi'  commons today was crowded evei y-  AvhoioAvhen    Mr.    David     Aided  Thomas, Liberal member for  I.I01-  thior-Tydvil rose  to  move  the reopening  of  the   enquiry   into  the  origin   and   circumstances   of the  Jiunioson   raid.    lUr.   Tliointis   disclaimed   any    personal    animosity  against Mr. Chamberlain, the secretary of .state for the colonies, but,  lie  continued, tho inconclusive  nature of tho first cnquiiy had created     widespread     dissatisfaction  wliich, Mr.  Ihomas  asseitcd,  had  .deepened   the   indignation  at  the  disclosures of the continental newspapers, impugning the impartiality  ���| of the committee.  {     Continuing,  he said it v.as in the  ,| intercut    of    the   nation   and  the  '1 character    and   reputation  of the  ��� house of commons  and  Mr.   Cham-  \ berlain   that there  be  a full  and  ,' searching   inquiry,    Mr.     Thomas  ! further asserted that tho previous  inquiry  was  a farce  and that the  fiesh facts adduced  in   the corres-  1 pondence   published by  the Iudo-  depondeiica   Beige    were     .strong  grounds for a fresh inquiiy.  Mr. Samuel Thomas Evans, liberal member for the middle di\ is-  iou of Glamoiganshiie seconded the  motion. In doing so he argued  that theie were strong grounds for  suspecting that the colonial office  aud Mr. Chambeilain had piior  knowledge of the e\cnts leading up  to the raid. Mr. Evans said ib was  a question whether the authors of  the raid had sufficient power or influence to prevent a majoiity of the  house of commons of having the  hope of getting a committee of inquiry appointee..  Hero Mr. Chamberlain interjected: "I do not understand what  the  member   means  by  tho  last   sentence."  - Mr. Evans.rcpiicd that he thought  everyone else in   the house,  understood that the suggestion was ,that  tiiOiO/      '-were      influence.-     which  might     be     worked    to    prevent  the     government     from      asking  i'or  the  loappointment of a   committee.    (Miinstenal orios of '"what  influences'.'" followed these remarks.  Mr. Chamberlain, amid  profound  attention, said there was alsolutely  nothing   in   what    had   happened  since 1897 which  could  possibly be  raised  as ground for ra second inquiry.    He proceeded to .review the  ���whole history of the committee and  repeated  his previous  declaration,  especially referring to tho lL.iv.k_,-  loy   telegrams.     Mr.   Chamberlain  ridiculed the grounds advanced foi  anew  inquiiy and explained Unit  Mr. Rhode.6- was  charged with two  di&t'tnct offenses.    Jlu  was accused  iirst of canspiiing  to bring about  the raid,  on   which ho a. as  found  guilty and condemned in the strongest terms by the committee.    The  colonial, seci'etary Jbltuuod   him____s  bevoroly as  anybody.     The  other  charge* was that he acted from sordid motives with the object of promoting speculation and  raising the  values' of his property. Thi> iva- an  abominable   charge   wliich  should  not luivc-bcen made and of which  Mr. Rhodes a\ as absolutely guiltless.  Another ground upon v. hich an enquiry AVas asked, was an account of  and country.    The  attack will  recoil upon those who made it."  lie confessed that at one time he  felt bitterly against such insinuations "which those lcpeating them  did not daro assert they believed  should be brought against me after  21 years.' membership iu the house  of commons."  Continuing he said he was not  hopeful that anything that he or the  house said would silence his foreign  critics, but no one iu Great Britain  w hose good opinion he cared for  would be affected by the charges.  The manner of conducting this  busine*.-. of the committee and the  closing of the inquiry, he declared,  wci o both can ied out as suggested  by Sir AVilliam Vernon Harcourt,  who coitainly did not desire to  shield anyone in the colonial office.  At the conclusion of his remarks,  Mr. Chamberlain was heartily  cheered by the ministerialists.  London, Febrniu y 20.-*-Mr Chamberlain in his defence also declared  as to the telegrams exchanged between Mr. Rhodes and his agent  that they were sent confidentially,  that he returned them saying he  had no objection to their publication. Since June 1S9G he had not  seen the telegrams which were produced and examined by the committee. As to the letters, Mr.  Chamberlain said they were stolen  from Mr. Ilawksley's desk and Dr.  Leyds offered to pay ��100 for them.  They contained nothing unknown  to tho committee.  THE REDISTRIBUTION Bltf  Sir   AVilliam   Vernon   Harcourt,  tho ''precious collodion of docu  mentfa" published by the independence Beige, which had been offered  for sale to various London papers  who " would not touch them with  tongs," and ab last they found '�����..  customer in n "friend of tho Boers,  who contrived to transmit them to  Dr. Leyds who paid or promised to  pay ��100 sterling therefor and they  were then communicated to the Independence Beige. There v\ as nothing in these documents from first to  jast" said the colonial secretaiy,  who then dissected most of the  documents, pointing out that they  afforded no ground for charges  against the colonial office. He then  said:  "li this matter had not been complicated by party matters and personal animosities no man in the  house would have said theie was a  shadow of ground for such an en-  quiiy. The objects of these pergonal attacks is to prevent me from  participating in the Transvaal settlement."  Mi. Chamberlain i'uithcr said  that the honorable members oppo-  '-.site did not want an inquiry.  "They want an execution/' he said;  "let them do their worst, I am perfectly ready. 1 rest upon the good  tense and generosity of the house  who was a member of the parliamentary committee which enquired  into tho Jamieson raid, followed Mr,  Chamberlain. lie said on the very  face of it the committee's report  did not find that there had beeu a  full enquiry, as indeed there had  not been. Tho suspicions agaiust  the colonial office were not the  work of political adversaries, but  rather of men who for their own  ends stuck at nothing in tho way of  mendacity, forgery and fraud. The  authors of these suspicions were  the agents of Cecil Rhodes. They  sought to assert the complicity of  tho colonial* office to cover their  own guilt. _. Dr. Jamieson told sir'  John "Willoughby, a man of unquestioned honor, that the government  was behind the raid and Dr. Jamieson had not denied it.  *,   Mr. Chamberlain.���" Yes, he was."  Sir William Vernon Harcourt.���  ���'The insurrection was promoted by  the foulest frauds. Was there ever  anything so abominable ,as the  Rhodes telegram to Jamieson two  days before the raid, putting it into  his mouth to lie about the objects  of the raid. When tho colonial  sceiotary after tho"laid asked for  an inspection of the telegrams,  JIawksley wrote back that this was  unnecessary as the colonial secretary knew all. Therefore suspicions  were sot afloat by the agents of  Rhodes but then there was no suggestion that they were covered by  tl o complicity of the colonial ollice.  That is what I waut to have shown  up. 1 want the transactions of  these men brought to light. Rhodes  ha., deceived everybody. _Tho_rai__]_  was made by gold and lies."  Sir Henry Campbell-Baunerman  w ho defended the committee's proceeding!- said ho "feared the speech  of the colonial secretary would not  tend io lesson public suspicion. He  appealed to the government to  allow the inquiry to be reopened  declaring that it would be a great  relief to show to the world that the  Biiti_.li government and people had  no.part iu the "iniquitous folly of  1803." Mr. Arthur J. Balfour, the  government leader stigmatised the  motion of Mr. Thomas as "a personal attack on the colonial secretary will recoil on his own opponents,"  The house rejected tho motion to  reopen the inquiry by a vote of 280  against 159.  Boer Tactics Criticised,  Bi-RUN, Feb. 20.--The jMilitaire  Wct'cheublatt in the course of an  at tide 1_3' a high officer of the general stair attempting to* disprove  the view that the Boer successes  have been due to their tactical defensive, says: "On the contrary,  the recent Boer successes prove the  inefficiency of their defensive, since  an energetic offensive would in like  circumstances released the Boer  corps guarding the defeated corps  of general Buller, lord Methuen and  general White for delivering a  crushing blow to the Biitish. Without such a bold offensive, the Boers  will never again win a decisive victory or accomplish more than a half  measure. The writer then reviews  in detail the engagements in South  Africa, and makes out a strong ease  foi his contentions.  Is Bead a First Time.  Victoria, February 20���[Special  to   tho Tribune].���The   legislature  today considered the message transmitting    the    Redistribution   bill,  which   received   its   first   reading  without any form of attack by the  opposition developing.   The session  today lasted only two hours, and  the government, without   making  any formal announcement, encourages the  belief that no important  measures are  to  be  pressed before  the  Redistribution   bill,  that   private   bills   and   contentious    public     measures     will     after     that  be      proceeded      with,     and      if  defeat occurs on the disputed measures to follow  that, the  ministers  will be quite prepared to go to the  country.  Higgins read to the house  today a telegram from Kaslo  stat ���  ing that the memorial of the associated boards of trade of Kootenay  was not included  in the return of  correspondence  on   the eight-hour  law  recently presented.    He   intimated that he  had  a  mind  to impeach  Hume for contempt of the  house in the omission of such important   documents    in    the    return.  Henderson came to  Hume's  rescue  with the statement that ho believed  the Kaslo  petition  was in his  department, not  Hume's,  and would  be produced forthwith.  A friendly elector of Nanimo has  brought suit against McKechnie for  for thirty three thousand dollars  for penalties incurred iu sitting  ancl voting since, as alleged, his  election became invalid. This will  bi inga judicial decision if necessary,  but in the meantime McKechnie  sticks to his place/  McPhillips gives notice of these  questions:  Whatii the ecplaua ion o" the  change of proceedings in the Slocan  that followed the action of constable Kelly in arresting the secretary of the Miners union?

HOW  CRONJE  RETREATED  BOERS ABANDON Alt THEIR  Winnipeg and Golden Grown.  Greenwood, February 20.���Tho  Times today says: "Another important consolidation of two Boundary  Creek mining companies is in process of consummation. Last night  the-following brief telegram was  sent to the presidents of each of  the_.raining stock exchanges in Montreal, Toronto aud Rossland rby  Duncan Mcintosh, president ancl  general manager of the Winnipeg  Mining k Smelting Company:  ��� Winnipeg mine. closed down  today pending consolidation  with the Brandon and Golden  Crown/ By the" same gentleman tbe Times was informed  that while all the details of the  consolidation have not yet been per-  -fectcd, -Montreal _and��� Toronto  capital were behind the new  company. The idea of consolidating the two mines has beeu on the  tapis for some time, It is proposed to use the niaiu shafts of the  Brandon and Golden Crown company for tho output of the two  properties. Both mines are developed by shafts to a depth of 300  feet. Within the. past three weeks  the Winnipeg mine has shipped  nine carloads of ore to the Trail  smelter, and the returns from the  earlier shipments have beeu most  satisfactory. A fraction over $20  to the ton wore the net profits.  By the consolidation of the companies both properties can bo  worked on a much more economical  scale.  Boundary Ore for Trail.  Greenwood, February IS.���The  Winnipeg mine, in Wellington  camp, is still maintaining its record  for ore shipments. Yesterday two  more cars left Hartford Junction  for the Trail smelter. The total  number of cars shipped to date is  ten. As long as cars aro available  at the junction ore will be ready for  loading.  Marcel-Habert Trial.  Paris, February 20.���The senate,  sitting as a high court, resumed  today the trial of Marcel-Habert,  charged with inciting troops to  inarch upon the Elysee palace at  the time of the funeral of president  Fanre: Replying to the interrogatory of the president of the court,  M. Marcel-Habert protested that he  had already been judged and acquitted on the same charges.   He  Advanced Positions.  London, February 21.���The Boers  are leaving all the positions held  by them on British territory and  are concentratingl for the defence  of their own. Sir Redvers Buller  thinks they are about to raise the  siege of Ladysmith and this is the  last news of the day.  General Clements reports that  the force confronting him has  greatly diminished. Ten thousand  men are estimated to have gone  from the Colesburg-district alone.  The Boers aie also retracing their  steps from Zululand. Thus they  are relaxing their hold on all sides  iu order to assemble to oppose Lord  Roberts. He is pressing on  steadily towards Bloemfontein.  This is shown by i^is inconsequential telegram from j_Mardeberg fifty  or sixty miles away. Doubtless he  is miles behind the column that is  pursuing the Boers, ancl the next  important news may be the occupation of Bloemfontein.  Nothing had been heard from the  chase of Cronje for two days. Although the last words of the war  office tonight wore that there was  no news for publication, there is a  strong disposition to believe that  favorable information has been received, but is being withheld until  the operations culminate in something more conclusive. There is an  equally strong disposition to  think that general prouje has  got away. Owing to^tho lack of  transports, the Biitioh are not'hke-  ly to invade Boer territory except  where lord Roberts is operating.  General Buller will have to stop at  the Drakensberg mountains. Probably a part of his 40,000 men will  ultimately join the legions of loici  Roberts. Jf. as general Buller  avers, the Boers are retreating from  him, theh the new s on every side is  favorable to the British.  Nevertheless troops continue to  go tip. The war_ office thinks that  the call to veterans to rejoin iJieir  colors together with the bounty will  bring 4000 men to the home defence. The urgency with which the  home defence is pressed excites  some wonder. With, tho casualties  just reported the British losses in  killed, wounded and captured now-  aggregate 11,102.  With Mafeking Belief Force.  Boluwavo, February 12.���Colonel Plumer sent major Bird with  two hundred colonials to attempt  the capture of tlio Boers' twelve-  pounder on a kopje near Crocodile  pool. Major Bird met with such a  ten ific rifle and shell fire that he  considered the position too strong  and ordered a retirement. Colonel  the Hon. F. W. AVhite was slightly  wounded, major Straker was severely wounded, nineteen privates  were wounded, and captain Samson  French and nine men are missing.  How the Wagons Were Lost.  CrADdock, Cape Colony,, February 20.���Details have arrived  here with respect to the character  of the British convoy at Reit river.  It appears that wagons Were  laagered near the drift and that  the convoy was attacked by 1S00  Boers Avith four guns. The shelling was continued all day.

From Magersfontein.  London, Feb. 1.���A correspondent of the Daily Chronicle telegraphing Sunday thus describes  general Cronje's retreat with the  Boers at Magersfontein, on learning  of general French's success:  "On     Thursday     at    midnight,  headed   by    general    Cronje,   five  thousand Boers with their  heavy  guns and ox Avagons evacuated the  Magersfontein lines.   At dawn on  Friday the  retreating  Boer army  was  seen from  the  British  naval  gun  station  of   Klip  Drift  kopje,  trekking eastward across the British front at a distance of 500 yards.  Our    guns     opened    upon     them  aud a  force of mounted infantry,  crossing the river, made a dashing  charge in the attempt to cut off the  head of the enemy's column.   But  in half an  hour their whole force  had gained shelter under  a  line of  kopjes.    Meanwhile two of our batteries  here came  up and  also the  Oxfords, Buffs, AVest Ridings and  Gloucesters.    Our infantry crossed  the drift and for three  hours  were  engaged with the enemy while out-  batteries shelled his position.    The  mounted   infantry   kept   hard   at  work.  Unable to withstand our  galling  shell fire, the enemy retired, disputing every inch of the way, and took  up a second position on  the  kopjes  t~> the eastward.    It was a magnificent spectacle to sec the Boer army  thus   at   bay.     Tlieir  rear  guard,  2000' strong,  fought  us while the  main   body   trekked  further   east  and then  brought  their guns into  action, while the rearguard retired.  The action continued most   of   the  day.    Our infantry fought splendidly but the enemy held his ground  under the continued bombardment.  Later on the Boer commander ventured on a bold 'stroke.     Leaving  2000 of  his   men   tinder   cover  he  wicboVew Jus nieu from  his main  position and headed for Klip Kraal  diift. six miles to the  east.     This  movement* was    soon   discovered.  Our mounted  infantry  came  back  across the drift and marched along  the  south bank  in an endeavor to  head     oil'     the   enemy.        When  Ave     reached    the     neighborhood  of Klip Kraal drift, night  had  already fallen   and 'half  the  Boers  A\oie already across  to the south  side.    Our  mounted infantry har-  rassed    their    movements.    Mean-  Avhilo the Boer rear- guard, having  covered  the crossing of the  main  body, retired sloA\'!y and  successfully  passed  the  drift.    The  rear  guard fought desperately and as it  fell back to the river, It Avas har-  rasscd on the flank and the tear by  the British.  Having thus passed under cover  of darkness* tho Boers trekked  throughout the night in the direction of Bloemfontein. General  Kelly-Kenny-Avith the sixth-division then pursued thorn at daylight.  Genet ill MacDonald with the High*  hinder-, following him.  MacDonald reached Klip Kraal  drift by'forced marches on Sunday.  General Kelly-Kenny/moving from  Klip Kraal drift, was endeavoring  Lo outflank the enemy and to cut  them oil from Bloemfontein so as  to dii\o them back into general  Mac-Donald's hands.

Recent reports from Camp Mansfield sIioav that the development  work there is proceeding with the  most satisfactory results. The tunnel on the Tony is now in 130 feet,  and besides encountering the ledge  as chronicled in The Tribune not  long since, it has just struck a small  vein of high grade ore 8 inches.  The ore sIioavs native silver and  goes $30.50 in gold to the ton.    The  Twin Lakes tunnel is in 145 feet  and has just struck the hanging  wall of the A'ein towards which it  AA'as being driven. The Marguerite  and Bertha tunnels AA'hich are being  driven to tap the Joker vein at  depth, are iioav in 105 feet and 100  feet respectively. As soon as tho  Aveather permits a tunnel  ���will also be started ou tho  Crescent, on which there is a  big ledge of quart-, of good  grade. All the claims above mentioned belong to Reni Laudi of London, England, and, during the absence of Ernest Mansfield, the mining operations are being looked  after by AV. E. Boie. A force of 30  men is kept steadily at work.  Ou the Lost Boy, a claim in the  same district belonging to the Pae-  tolus Gold Mining Company, development Avork is also proving most  satisfactory. A tunnel is being  driven in on the ledge Avhich, in the  last 20 feet, has Avidened out from  15 inches to fiA-e feet.  But little is gi\en to the public  about the Joker group, but a long  tunnel has just been started aboA*e  Bertha lake, Avhich Avill tap tho  A'ein at a depth of 050 feet. The  tunnel Avill be nearly 1000 feet long.

TiiKrcdistributionmeasure, which  was introduced in the legislature on  Monday, has not yet been  received  in Nelson, but from  the  press reports it can scarcely be regarded as  anything more than an expedient.  It does not treat Avith the representation of the  Avholo  province, but  deals Avith some of the most glaring  inequalities.    While   the   bill   Avill  not accomplish all that could be desired, it Avill neA"ei theless be an improvement upon the present allotment   of   representation,   and   fortius  reason  it should be  well  received.   Upon this measure the fate  of the government uoav hangs, and  incidentally premier Semlin has put  it'in the power of Joseph Martin to  wreck the goA'ernment if he so desires.   Martin has repeatedly stated  that he Avould support a fair 1 cdis-  tribution measure, brrt Avhether the  present bill is acceptable to him remains to be seen.   If Martin votes  against the measure in a full house  it will mean a  goA'ernment defeat,  since   Higgins   and   Prentice   may  both   be  counted against it as  it  cuts out their seats.    In a full house  there are just 37 votes upon the  floor and Avith Martin, Higgins and  Prentice counted  out  the  government  can  muster  but  IS, so that  there is a chance irr a full house of  the measure being defeated by one  vote.    This Avould mean a dissolution and a general election.  funeral of the late president Fanre.  Comparatively little interest was  taken in the proceedings. There  Avas a small audience present and  only a few of the general public assembled outside the chamber. In  the chamber of deputies today, tho  session was devoted to a discussion  of the senate's competence to try  the case of M. Marcel-Habert, Avhich  the latter contests.  HUDSON'S BAY  COMPANY.

The Canadians  were brigaded with the Ninth Division,  and,   in    the   march   from  _, '  "Wegcdraal to Jacobsdal, several of  them succumbed. They are now  among the missing. Among them  is private Cordon B. Corbould, &on  of Gordon E. Corbould, police magistrate at NeAV Westminster, aaIio  quit a laAV office to serve Avith the  first contingent.  IF half of what the Calgary  ranchers say is true, the Strathcona  Horse Avill not be of such assistance  to the British army as lord Strathcona intended. Such poor judgment was exercised, in the puiclm-sD  of stock around Calgaiy, that the  Calgary board of tio.de- and city  council have considered it necessary  to  meet   ancl   repudiate   the   ,stock purchased  al ropreventative  of the Calgary ranches. This is  much to be regretted. There was a  ehauco to make tho Strathcona  Horse the flu est body of mounted  men in South Aftica: but it now  looks as if the men Avere to have  discarded plugs instead of horses.

CITY LOG/U NEWS  The mining recorders at Nelson  and Rossland arc busily engaged in  arranging for the exchange of  claims under tlieir jurisdiction necessitated by the recent redistribution of districts. Mr. Wright's list  of claims to be handed over to the  Rossland recorder is quite lengths',  but it is not a circumstance to tho  Rossland list, which includes 1000  claims. As all the records relating  to these claims have to be transferred from one office to the other,  the proposition is decidedly complicated.  Charles Lindemann has sold an  eighth interest in the "Minnie"  claim on Hall creek to W. S. Doyle  of Hall.  The transfer is recorded of a half  interest in the "Surprise" claim on  the north fork ot Kokanee creek by  T. Mornn to AV. IT. Purdy. The  consideration was $275.  Joseph Sturgeon of the Sherbrooke hotel has been acquiring  several new mining interests. The  transfer was recorded yesterday of  a third interest in the North Star,  Morning Star and Alterato claims  on Fern mountain by John II.  Schenk of Waneta to Mr. Sturgeon.  W. S. Doyle of Hall also transferred  an eighth of the Minnie claim on  Hall creek to Sturgeon. In both  records the consideration named  was nominal.  Ah intensely exciting match was  curled at the rink yesterday afternoon between the Richardson and  Bradley rinks. At the end of 14.  ends the Richardson quartette led  by five points, but an arrangement  was made whereby two moie ends  were played iu the course of which  Bradley evened up the score. Then  an end was curled to break the  deadlock and Richardson scored a  point, making the total 12 to 11.  The players on llie winning rink  were: Dr. Armstrong, P. B, Wilson,  H. D. Hume and W. Richardson,  skip; while the losing rink was:  J. Thompson, J. Huston, G. Steele  and J. H. Bradley.  R. B. McCammon, C. P. JI. agent  at Rosebery is in tho city visiting  his brother _J. McCainmou who is  convalescing at the general hospital  after an attack of ts'phoid fever.  The annual meeting of the Free  Library Association take.,, place at  the St. Saviour's Sunday school to-  uighfc., The year's reports and the  election of directors aro the leading  features on the programme.  A rather exciting incident trans-  piicd yesterday morning iu Frod,  Irvine k Co.'s store. A huge icicle  which had formed on the firewall  above the store became detached  during tho thaw, and fell. It  crashed through a skylight carrying a deluge of broken glass and ice  into the store. Fortunately no  damage was done be5-ond_t__.e_I0.ss_  of the glass, nor was any person  injured.  Born iu Nelson yesterday, to the  wife of A. F. McCuIloch, the  well-  known C. P. R. engineer, a daughter.  William Hunter, one of the  pioneer merchants of the Slocan, is  now on his way to the capital in  charge of a petition which seeks  the incorporation of Phnoeix as a  municipality. Should the prayer  of the petition bo granted, Phoenix  will in all respects be the sroungost  eity in the province. A s-ear ago  ago Phoenix was merely a name for  a townsite.  Superintendent Troup has placed  himself on record as a -strong supporter of "the movement for new C.  P. 11. Buildings in Nelson. Prior to  the recent change he Avas satisfied  with the quarters he had, but with  doubled duties und stall: on his  hands, the new superintendent  states that there will be no sttonger  pusher i'or new O. P. R. buildings  than himself.  The level of the lake yesterday  was four inches below the level on  the same day last year. Had the  cold snap continued it is probable  tho water would have fallen to low  water mark, but in view of the soft  weather the water is more likely to  rise than to fall.  The Balfour extension will be  policed   by    the   provincial force  maintaining order, this being the  authorities' experience at other  poiuts iu the province. An oflieer  will be despatched as soon as active  operations commence.  11. Lillie of this eit$r, father-of the  Lillie Brothers, received his medal  yesterday for servk|^Hfche Fenian  raid. Mr. Lillie <mB^ffrprivate in  the Perth rifle company of the 42nd  Battalion, which did frontier duty  for six months between Brockville  and Preseott, aud of Avhich the late  colonel Crawford was in command.  Greenwood's electric light plant,  which is owned by a private company composed of local men, was  given a test on Saturday evening  with very satisfactory results. W.  P. Dickson of the Kootenay Electric Supply & Construction Company of this city, had charge of the  construction work for the Greenwood company, and the Times Of  that city speaks highly of the  maimer in' which the Nelson man  did tho work. The rates in Greenwood for electric lighting are higher  than in Nelson.  Beyond a message from E..; C.  Wragge and H. M; T. Pym, stating'  that the Nelson boys serving in the  Strathcona horse are all Avell, nothing has been heard from the contingent. Citizens interested in the  corps are anxious to learn whether  any of the temporary promotions  made here prior to leaving were  continued by lieutenant-colonel  Steele at Ottawa. It is agreed that  the long service of Percy Routh as  non-commissioned officer in the  mounted police will undoubtedly  win him a chevron in the Strathcona Horse.  T. G. Procter has been confined to  his bed for two or three days with  a slight attack of bronchitis. He  hopes to be able to be out this  afternoon. .    #  J. McMartin, who has the eon-  tract for two miles of rock work on  the western end of the Balfour extension, hopes to have his plant ou  the ground and begin work tomorrow.   He will employ over 120 men.  The C. R. is bringing several conductors from Manitoba and the  east to run- on the Crow's Nest  road. Volunteers were called for  and several conductors forwarded  their names to J. A. Cameron, superintendent at Cranbrook, from  among whom he will select the men  he wants.  II. _S. Beasley, formerly superintendent} of the C. P. li. lines in  Kootenay, arrived hi Toronto yesterday. He is to stay i'n the queeii  city a few das's before leaving for  the scene of his-future duties in  Montreal,  Mrs. iv. C. Beaton left on Monday  on a fortnight's visit to friends in  Seattle.  The city officials renewed their  efforts'yesterday to clear out the  outlet of the main sewer, which  emptier into the lake near the  C. P. It. docks. A few days ago a  strong volume of water was pumped  through with good results, but the  effort had to be temporal ily abandoned owing to severe weather.  Yesterday a line of hose was laid  from the hydraut at Vernon and  Ward streets and*more water sent  through, A clearance will probably be effected.'  Brown & Company are to open a  clothing and men's furnishing establishment shortly in one of Malone &)-Tregillus-new stores.-   The work of disinfecting and fumigating the Moyie was continued  yestetday under the direction of  Dr. LaBau. The clothing of the  passengers was included in the process, and the gaibs worn by them  while tlieir clothes were in the  smoking process caused much  amusement. Tiie men wore overalls and blue jumper?, while the ladies were attired in clothing borrowed for the occasion. The decks  of a couple of barges which had  beeu used for exercising by the  passengers were also scrubbed with  disinfectants.  The C. P. R. takes over the Boundary extensions on March 1st, and  after that date construction rates  wille be replaced by the regular C.  P. R. tariffs/ The announcement  will bo received with pleasure by  citizens and business men who have  occasion to know by experience how  much the change means.  Alf Jeffs leave, on Thursday for  his home in Paris, where he will remain until his injured leg is strong.
