PRICE FIVE CENTS.  GOVERNMENT^ DEFEATED  On -Redistribution.  Victoria, February 23.���[.Special  to the Tribune].���The defeat of the  provincial govern men b  came as a  sensational surprise this afternoon.  The debate on the  second  reading  of the Redistribution bill had been  proceeding in orthodox fashion and  five or six members on either  side  had-been heard from.    Then Hall of  Victoria rose with   the suggestion  of closure, in tho motion "that the  previous   question   be   now   put."  There was  a  full  house,  and  the  three bolters, Martin, Higgins and  Prentice held up their  hands   with  the straight'opposition.     The resolution was carried  by nineteen, to  ��������� eighteen.    The "previous question,"  being tho motion for second reading,  ���was put accordingly.    The government had still a forlorn  hope  that  .Too Martin's course in  urging  tli is  redistribution  and   his  promise to  support any fair  measure   would  swing his vote to tlieir side at  this  crisis.    But during  a cross Jire in  the house a few days  ago, Martin's  successor as  attorney-general   had  somewhat cavalierly  released him  from the promise, and since his assistance had been  spurned, M_irtin  felt free"to  seize  the  long  sought  for opportunity and again held  up  his baud with  the  opposition, this  time against  the  second   reading.  To assure himself that his eyes  did  nob  deceive, him,  speaker Forster  inquired "How docs the honorable  third member for Vancouver vote."  .Tbe  quickly    and    formally    pronounced  the   ministers'   doom,  "I  vote against the. resolution," he declared.  "The bill is lost", observed'Mr.  speaker aiul the opposition sent up  a shout of triumph in which the  galleries joined with a will. When  order was restored, Seinlin dubiously remarked: "1 suppose the  house ab its.risiiig should stand adjourned to Monday." "Make it  Tuesday," said Turner, and ' with  "very well, J move Tuesday," , the  premier acquiesced and it was so  resolved,,  Mr. Turner suggested that the  private bills on tlio order paper  might be put through before any  interruption of the session to follow the..turn of events, aud Seinlin  accepting tliis suggestion also* the  proceeding.*- terminated. Whether  the ministers will resign forthwith  or ask for a dissolution and election  is not'yct disclosed.  berley discovered the Boers concentrating, Avhethor for offense or  defence is conjecture.  The Boors seem to be retiring  from general Gatacroat Stcrkstrom  in order to reinforce the Freo  Staters.  Ludysmith had not been relieved  when the latest news came from  Natal two days ago. The Boers  had been retired half way between  Ladysmith and Colenso. If only  0000 went to the Free State as both  Boer and- British accounts assert,  the 12,000 who are left may purpose  to maintain the siege and to resist  general Buller with contracted  lines, although the impression at  general Buller's headquarters is  that the Boers are merely covering  a retreat.  [HOW ATTACK ON LADYSMITH  WAR EAGLE DIRECTORS ARE  At the opening of the session today", Neill got in his explanation of  the incident rcfericd to by Eberts  yesterday.     lie said that when he  -spoke of the death of* the Canadians  putting au end to'"heady patriotism'' ho spoke not of the patriotism  of the volunteers but of. the "frothy  mouthings" of tho opposition,  Eberts contradicted this, saying  that no such construction could be  pub'upon the words.

Lo.NM.ox, February 21.���1:15 a.m.  ,.lr. Balfour announced in the house  if commons at half past   twelve  his morning that no further news  egarding general Cronje had been  cecived  by the government.   He  ad sent to tho  war  ofiieo  during  ho hour and he asserted 1 hat uoth-  ig had conic to lmnd there.    Gen-  ral Cronje therefore is presumably  ..ill unbeaten.    No other consfcruc-  on is placed upon the three days'  lence of lord Roberts.   Vet no one  m sec how it is humanly possible,  idgingfrom  the  descriptions  of  s situation on Wednesday  morn-  g, for him to resist so long.  "Englishmen feel something like  ide in Cronje, even as a foe," says  e Daily  News.     "In  a position  vering only a squaremile, hemmed  on all sides, circled with a chain  lire from maxim  and  howitzer,  .yed on by deadly lyddite bnrst-  *in its  own  sickly green   light,  hastily built trenches en ti laded  a stream of lead sweeping down  river from the north bank, gen-  Cronje still elects to fight.

Contrary to expectations, everything passed off quietly, and no adverse comments Avere made regarding the action of the directors in  closing down the mine. There was  a large attendance of shareholders,  in fact, the room was not large  enough to accommodate all of  them, and several went away much  displeased with everybody. The  election of directors resulted as follows :  Messrs. George Gooderham, T. G.  Blaekstock, Hon. Senator Cox, W.  H. Beatty, W. G. Gooderham, C. H.  Gooderham, A. E. Gooderham of  Toronto, aud C. 11. Hosmer of Montreal. Messrs 0. II. Gooderham  and Hosmer are the new members  of the board. Subsequently George  Gooderham'. and Mr. Blaekstock  wore reelected president and vice-  president.  Mr. Blaekstock read the directors'  report, and took occasion to repudiate any imputations made  against the board. They had  adopted what they considered was  a wise policy, and were -confident  that it would not be' long before  War Eagle stock would be selling  ab a higher rate than ib ever reached  before. They did not feel inclined  to disclose their reason for closing  down,1 but intimated that it. was  due, in a measure, to excessive  smelter charges. , They submitted a  report of an .unprejudiced mining  engineer, Wayne Darlington, to  show that the mine was" not  "worked out."  Manager E. B.Kirby advised the  closing down of the works. The  cost of mining and developing the  War Eagle mine is given as $11S,-  001, and net proceeds from the sales  $270,097, Divide-ids 18, 19 and 20  called for $78,750. .  Boers Giving- Way.  Loxdon", February 24.���A dispatch from Chieveley dated Thursday, February 22nd to the Daily  -Chrouicle-tay.-'.���At dawnon Tues=~  day we found that the' Boers had  vae.. ted their position south of the  Tugela and, were in positions  among the high hills midway between Ladysmith and the river and  making a-determined stand,.

Al^  the British naval and other heavy  guns were brought to bear upon  tho new positions and wo believe  that this show of Boor strength  was only intended to cover a retreat. Yesterday (Wednesday) tho  Boers were retiring all day, General Buller continued to harass  them, "compelling them to give  way.'"      - '  Provisioning Kimberley.

London, February 24.���A dispatch to tiie Daily Telegram from  Pietermaritzberg dated Thursday  says: "Fighting is proceeding in  the A'icinity of Pieters this morning. General Buller's advance is  being opposed by both big guns  aud rifle lire."  Was Repulsed.  London, February 24.���Few more  brilliant stories have been  written  than the three column  account  iu  the Standard from Ladysmith of the  terrific assault upon that camp by  the Boers on January 0th.     Many  of the details told by the Standard  correspondent are intensely interesting. First of all he gives a lucid explanation of the mysterious way in  which the Boers managed to get so  close before they were  discovered.  "At 7 o'clock Friday night", he  writes,    "500   picked   Boers   rode  from  the laager behind  Bulwana  and  fording the  river  came  to a  kopje     south     of   Caesar's   camp  Then    they     bivoacked     until    1  o'clock    in    the    morning    when  they crept cautiously along the ravine and across Fourtiers  Spruit.  Avoiding .our-pickets  and patrols  one section moved up the ravine to  the eastern shoulder and  climbed  silently up the slope in the fold of  the hill.    Another company moved  along the boulder strewn ascent toward the   plateau   on   the south,  while three or four thousand  were  iu  reserve among, the kopjes and  broken ground.    They were  ready  to assist the storming parties  and  to occupy the hills in force as soon  as their comrades secured a footing.  I     "In the attack upon Caesar's camp  one "party of fifty Boers seeking to  make good their retreat were overtaken by the Border Mounted Rifles  and escaped for the momemt by declaring that they  were the /town  guard.     This trick  had, however,  become   too stale aud every "man  was shot  doAvn  as/soon   as   they  came into the open.   The Boers, as  I have  repeatedly said, appear to  think    that    the    white    flag   is  a legitimate   weapon    of    offense  and may be used as a cloak for any  treachery.   A Boer officer with a  dozen armed "followers advanced up  the   hill   with  a   white   flag   and  shouted that they xs ere coming to  surrender when called upon to drop  their weapons they made it clear  that what they, intended  was not  surrender but treachery.  "Vyiien after many hours.of fierce  fighting, the'Boers were almost repulsed from C-Osar's camp, a'storm  came to their aid iu  their  dire ex-,  tremity.    The volleying musketry  of  hail  and  the  roar  of thunder  added a dreadful note  to  the cannonade and sheets of flooding rain  turned   the   spruits   into   raging  torrents and the plains into lakes.  To  see   fifty   yards   through   this  blinding   shower   was   impossible.  Seizing    the   moment,   the   Bbers  pushed forward,another force from  behind Bulwana.   But they did not  get   behind   the    kopje   east   of  C/esar's camp before our naval gun  threw a few shells into their midst.  The storming party made a dash  down  the hillside hoping to  find  protection in   the   storm.     Many  "were "shot ~ iu ~ th~cir~Higlfb   while  others iluug   thenselves   into the  river and were swept out  of sight:  This   rush   brought   the   fight  at  Caesar's" camp  to a close amid a  fusilade .that almost drowned the  thunder."  But it was at Wagon lull, where  the most dramatic features of the  assault occurred. Of this the Standard's correspondent says: "Colonel  Edwards was leading hi> men into  position on the east of Wagon Kill  when a bullet struck him in the  shoulder. Though robbed of their  leader at a. critical moment the  Light Horse never wavered.  Creeping . forward to points  that seemed least exposed  to the devastating lire from the  .front of the hill they fought manfully often to within 20 and even 10  yards of their enemy. This duel  went on for hours without auy  manifest sign of advantage on  either side, though men were falling  on every hand. Major Bowon called  for volunteers among the 00th  Rifles. Only half a dozen came for-  Avard, and with this handful of  gallant heroes, the brave officer  dashed at a strong position held by  the enemy. Not a man lived to tell  the story of their valor. Lieutenant  Todd with 25 men, made another  gallant charge. Thus the fight  went through the long and anxious  hours of the morning.  At   noon   the   Devons   came to  their rescue, the Gordons having no  officer, were again falling back, but  rallied to the call of major  Miller- j  Wahmtt whose gigantic figure -was  secu   at the head of a desperate j  charge.   The enemy left  the   em- I  placements   and    rushing   tip the I  western ascent took cover among  the   rocks.     Their   presence   here  was nob less dangerous and another  effort was made to dislodge  them.  A   subaltern  was  in  charge of a  working party of sappers, Lieutenant Digby-Jones, a youth of 22 who  had already won fame by the destruction  of the   howitzer  on Surprise hill.    When   the enemy  first  appeared on  the crest of  Wagon  hill,  Lieutenant   Digby-Jones   engaged the storming  party  from  a  saugar on the west front.     Driven  from that position he had been conspicuous   throughout the engagement for acts of heroism  that attracted the notice of colonel Hamilton, who had decided to reeomeud  him for.the Victoria Cross.K--;r  "Collecting a mixed company of  Sappers, Rifles and Highlanders, he  led them against the new'-.'position'  held   by    the    enemy.    As   they  dashed  up  the  narrow path,  the  Boers, not imagining that men could  display such reckless courage, called  upon   them   to   throw    up    their  bauds.      The  bullet and   bayonet  convinced them of their  error  and  the  position  was  ours.     But fate  was   holding the  shears  over the  head of a heroic life.     An  hour or  two af tenyards, when we had at a  great    sacrifice    reconquered   the  western limit of the hill, lieutenant  Digby-Jones  was  in the gun emplacement with  major Aliller-Wal-  uutt   aud   one  or  two men.    The  enemy had been  driven back, yet  .maintained  a  searching   fire,  and  having  received strong   reinforcements, was preparing for  another  advance.    Suddenly three  or four  great dark shadows were cast over  the parapet, in which there were no  loopholes.     Van  WjTck,  leader  of  the- Harrismith    commando,   field  cornet Revilliers and another brave  Boer'were making their last desperate charge."   Major Hiller-Wal-  nutt  shot his man and fell  himself  from a bullet aimed at the back of  his head. A corporal of the Sappers  slew   Revilliers,   whose    bandolier  was   almost   filled  with explosive  bullets.     Lieutenant   Digby-Jones  running,out   of the  emplacement  shot their commandant Van Wyck  before   he  himself ended a short  heroe's career with a mauscr^ bullet  through the throat.  His young aud  brave comrade, lieutenant Deuui-%  fell   a   moment   afterward   while  going to the aid of the,wounded.'  -"The   hard    fought    fight    was  nearly over.   Our men  avc re again  on the summit of the  hill and the  -hotchkiss gun of the naval  volunteers  was no   longer  in jeopardy.  But there remained a small aud gallant band of Boers who either would  not or could nob retire.    They were  hidden among some rocks about 50  yards from  the ,brow of the hill,  Their fire was deadly in its searching accuracy.     One man  alone is  credited with having shot no fewer  than five officers.    Colonel Hamilton  asked  colonel  Parke   whether  anything'eould be done to remove,  thorn.    "A charge"'  suggested   the  commander  of the Devons.     The  order was gi ven and the three cora-  panies went forward with  a  cheer  ~aerdss~tir.roj.eu shot swept ground.

Lorenzo Marquez, February 23.  ���The Transvaal government is reported to be seriously alarmed at  the defeat of the Boers at Kimberley and the retreat of their famous  general,  Cronje.    The  newspapers  are most reticent, but the Standard  and    Digger    News    claims   that  Crouje's movement is beneficial, as  "ib  increases  the  mobility of the  burghers army, enabling it to conduct niore effecti.velybeneficial operations on a carefully prepared plan."  There are persistent reports that  the seat of the Free State government is being moved to Wynburg.  It is said that G000 burghers have  been    sent   from    Ladysmith    to  Bloemfontein.  CojjEnso, Wednesday.���The Brib-  ish have crossed bhe Tugela over a  pontoon bridge to the north of  Hlaugwane and now occupy Fort  Wylie. The naval brigade was  bombarding Grobler's kloof yesterday, the Boers using their Creusot  gun in replying.  After the occupation of Colenso  a small party of Thornycrof b's  horse crossed bhe ' river, bub were  driven back by the fire from the  trenches. The Boer guns are still  shelling the relieving force from  the hills south of Ladysmith, but  the impression is spreading that  they are merely covering the retreat of the entire Boer force.

They gob  close to the Boers in the hills and  were fired ou. They quickly got  .their gnus in posibiou and shelled  bhe hills. Eventually the Boers  were driven out, retiring northward, when" they came under the.  fire of two other guns, _. supported  by a.company of Australians, near  the British western post on Dragoon  hill.

WEIR, Men's Outfitter.  gpite ffiribmte*  lti-Ci-XT reports received by the Canadian  ���wholesale trade of condition of business in the  mining centres of British Columbia are not reassuring. Jobbers who have made large shipments to leading mining centres some months  ago say that more request-, were received from  British Columbia mining towns for renewals  than from any other part of tho Dominion, and  that, in fact, the payments were, with (hose exceptions generally satisfactory, j It will be an  unfortunate matter for business concerns in  . Canada, if they have to undergo the same experience as witnessed in Lcndvillc, Colorado,  some years ago. In that city a prolonged strike  took place at the inception of which the mer.  chants continue 1 to give credit to miners, und  to hotoCand bearding house keepers; with whom  the miners lodged, but in the absence of nny  wages being earned, many merchants were  loaded with bad debts, and wore unable to discharge their indebtedness to the wholesale firms,  large losses being made in consequence. Al-  t hough the Canadian wholesale trade have no  direct interest in Iho merits of the labor  troubles in the west, thoy arc largely interested  in an indirect way iu connection with the discharge by retailers of their obligations for  goods supplied, and there is no doubt that  they will see the wisdom of taking such stops as  will sccute thorn against lhe serious disasters  that overtook Lcadvillc business men in the  miners' strike in that city.  The above bears a Toronto  date  and was printed  in  the Montreal  Star.    It is strange that the Avholesale houses of Toronto  should see  fit to publish broadcast that  they  have formed a  combine  with the  mine owners' associations of Kootenay to help lower the  wages  of  mine workers.   No more cowardly  and   contemptible   a   combination  Avas ever  formed in  any country.  It is cowardly because  those  who  engage in it are so far distant that  they take  no  chances  in    getting  hit, and contemptible   because it  shows that the managers of Toronto  Avholesale    houses   are   willing  to  slander     a     section    of    country  whose    people    haA'C    been   their  liberal   customers,   for   a' decade.  Since 1S90 the people,of  Kootenay  >    have purchased millions of dollars'  worth of goods from Toronto merchants, for AA'hich one hundred cents  on the dollar  haA'e  been  paid'.!   In  return for this, the whole country  i.s now being defamed,  .-imply because   a   feAV   speculating   mining  operators   ��� cannot     coerce     mine  "'   Avorkers into taking Avages that are  below the standard that haslongpre-  A-ailed on.'the Pacific Coast.   Jvoot-  enay was a good country long before  the   Gooderhams   and   the  Black-  btocks* and the lUackenxies and the  Manns commeuced their  questionable imuin'g operations at Rossland  aud   in   the Boundary,  and  it 'is  likely to be a  good  country  long  after those worthies iill dishonored  graves,    if the met chants of any  towns in Kootenay fall iu line aud  help these Toronto wholesale mer-  --chant:. do_ame_J__oo_enay._t_ien_in.iy_  they never be allowed to show their  fciecs   among    honorable    business  men.  Kvi.i.y business hon>e i'n the  mining districts of Kootonay and  Yale that 1hwc placed orders Avith  Toronto Avholesale houses should  cancel them by wire. When the  Avholesale houses of a city like  Toronto combine to.help Gooderham and Blackstock and Macken/.ie  and Mann to reduce the wages, of  mine worker., in British Columbia,  and in doing it show a willingness  to defame the Avhole country, ib is  high time to .show tho cowardly  whelps they must look elsewhere  for trade.   Tin*:   British   Columbia   Review  makes  the announcement that an  association has been formed in London Avhich include*- practically all  the British companies OAvning mines  iu the Slocan.   The avowed object  of    this     new   association    is    to  strengthen the hands of, and act in  concert Avith the Silver-Lead Mines  Association  of   tho   Slocan.     The  Record then endeavor*, to show that  tiie new organization Avill have an  important bearing upon the labor  situation  by presenting a   strong  front to the unions.    Then follow.s  a list of the companies Avhicli have  entered  the mme-ownei'-. union in  London :   Tho Queen Bess Proprietary Company,  Bosun  Gold mine,  Whitewater mines, Ruth mines,  Enterprise mines, Scottish Colonial  Goldfields, and the London k B. C.  Gold fields. It is a formidable list  of names ; but as one becomes acquainted Avith the several compiiu-  ies mentioned, one Avell-known personality shines through more than  half of the seemingly separate companies. Tho action of the companies in organising may therefore  be taken as indicative of tho gentle-  niens' A*iews upon the advantages of  organization. To this exfeut it will  bo Avelc'ome news indeed, for if in  practice he countenances the unifying of his companies, he cannot consistently refuse to accord the same  privilege to his AA'orking miners.  Then there is also the questionoof  the recognition of the- respective  unions. The new-born London  union will insist upon recognition  from the members of the labor unions, and in turn its representati\'o  iu Nelson will no doubt reciprocate  by recognizing the miners' unions.  Though startling at iirst, the new  association seemingly comes not to  destroy, but to save. It is assistance from an unexpected quarter,  but it is none the less welcome.

Tho Philippine islands are  situated  on the (uitfkiits of Asia  and may he said to be.at the  very  door of that  continent.    If it was  necessary for pivsidenl  Monroe to  decliro   any  attempt  to  encroach  upon any portions of the American  "continents extending over six thou-  , .sand wiles   from  Alaska  to  Patagonia as  dangerous to your pence  ;.nd safety, what shall  you  _-ay to  this     when   you   find   .that    the  ! mainland     of      Asia     is     nearer  , to     Manila      than     Porto     Rico  to Florida V 1 do not apprehend any  encroachment will take  phuo, but  the Monroe doctrine being Lhe fixed  policy   of   your   government,    the  natural  logic is that ib should be  uppliod to that part of llio woild  where this countryjias possessions.  This policy is by no means a sellisli  one, but is founded on justice and  and self protection and, if persistently carried on I, it will add gicat  !y  to   the   preservation   of   peace  wherever it. is on foi cod.    I  am  far  from milking light of the sci vices of  the army and navy of thi�� country,  whose bravery has recently excited  ["tho admiration  of tho  woild  aud  whoso   deeds   have   won   undying  fame, but the  dictum   of  Mendus,  one  of  our  ancient *-ag-\*-,  is  still  true, '�� king can conquer the woild  by brute foico; but lie cannot keep  it without justice and righteousness.' "   HOW A CROSS  WAS  WON.  Captain "Walter Norris Congreve,  V. C, rillo biigade, in a letter to a,  li iend at Ncwpoi I,(Monmouthshire)  gives a graphic description of the  battle of Colenso, tho loss and sub-  ��� .oquont ftttemped recovery of the  gnus., and the acts of bravery for  which he and the officers by whom  jie was assisted luu e beeu decor-  uted.    lie says:  "I was galloper to General Clery,  who rode all day with Sir Redvers.  Ruller. My first experience was  my stick being knoeked out of my  hand by a bullet. Then a horse bo-  &ide me was killed by a shell.  About jO o'clock two battric-.  which had advanced much too  close,  Is now prepared to issue Drafts and  Letters of Credit on Skaguay, TJ. S.,  Atlin, B. C, and Dawson City, N. W. T.  most of the men got into the nullah  again.   General   Clery  and   Buller  stood out in it and said:'Some of  you go and help.' Schofield, A.D.C.,  Roberts (lord Roberts' son), myself,  and two or three others went to the  wagons, and we three, helped by a  corporal and six gunners,  got  two  wagons horsed.   I have never seen,  even at field firing,  the bullets fly  thicker. All one could see were  little tufts of dust all over the ground,  a ivhistling noise, 'phut' where they  hit, and an increasing rattle of musketry -somewheie in front. My fiist  bullet went through my left sleeve,  and just made the joint of my elbow  bleed, next a clod of  earth  caught  me  smack ou the right aim, then  my hoise got one,   then  my   right  leg one. my horse another, and that  settled us i'oi" he plunged, and 1 fell  about 100 yards short of  the guns  wc weie going to.  "A little nullah w.as close by, and  into that 1 hobbled and sat  down.  it wa. not much shelter,  however,  and I had not been in a minute before another  bullet  hit my boot,  went  into  tho  welt,  travelled np,  and came out  at  the  toe-cap, two  inches fiom the end of the  toe.    It  did   not   even   scratch  me,  but I  shifted my quarters pietty quickly  to a  better place,   w here  I   found  colonels  Hunt and  Long,  R. A., a  dozen  or  so  Avounded   gunners, a  doctor, colonel Bullock  and  about  fifteen men of his regiment, all that  was left of the escort and two batteries.      The   bank of tho   nullah  was not more than three feet high,  so   we  had   to   lie   down,   bullets  whistling over one's  head   directly  it appeared.     About eleven o'clock  the lire slackened, so I went  out to  see if I could  see  anything  of the  rest of  our  party.    1   found  poor  Roberts badly wounded,  and  w ith  the doctor, a  gunner and a subaltern got  him  into the nullah, and  there  he lay from  11 to  4.80; no  water, not a breath of air,  no  particle of shade  and  a  sun  which I  have never felt hotter even in India.  A knife could  not  be held  in the  bare hand.  It was the most beastly  day I ever spent, and seemed interminable; what it must have been  for  the badly wounded   I  hardly  like to think.    Some of my time  was spent in dressing wounds under  Baptie's direction.    My jacket Avas  taken to shade Roberts' head,  and  what AA'ith blood and dirt, I  AA'as a  pretty object by the time I got out.  "About 4:30 the Boers rode up  and asked us to surrender or  they  would shoot us all.  Colonel Bullock  was the senior unAvoundcd  oflieer,  and had perhaps  twenty  rifles all  told.   He refused, and the Boers at  once  began  a  fusilade from  fifty  yards distance and  our  people returned it.    It was unpleasant, and  only a question of minutes  before  they enfiladed our trench and  bagged the lot.  Bullock's men knocked  over two, and they put up  a Avhite  (lag  and  parleyed, said  Ave  might  A. R. BARROW, A.M.I.C.E.  remove our wounded and the remainder either be taken prisoners  or fight it out. However, while Ave  Avere talking, 100 or so crept round  us, we found loaded rifles at every  man's head, and Ave .vere forced to  give iu. One of our ambulances  came up and avc were gradually  collected at one spot."  PROVINCIAL  ,LAND SURVEYOR  Corner Victoria and Kootonay Streets.  P. O. Box 55<_. "TELEPHONE NO. 9..

PATTON & EN-MAN  CITY LOCAL NEWS  At yesterday's police court a  drunk was assessed $10 by magistrate Crease. The man made a  nuisance of himself and might havo  been arraigned on a more serious  charge.  The Associated Charities Organization has on its hands five men  recently discharged from the hospital and unfit for work, three men  who are ready and willing to do  work of any kind but who are unable to find employment and are  "stony broke," and two destitute  families. These cases are known to  be thoroughly deserving and the  organization is anxious to see them  through tlieir difficulties. Small  contributions, will help the work  along greatly.  E. T. H. Simpkins, registrar of  the supreme court, is rejoicing over  the addition of an infant daughter  to his family. Mother aud child  are doing well.
