 DAILY  EDITION   BY MAIL  FIVE  DOLLARS A YEAR  nnz  WEEKLY EDITION  BY MAIL  TWO DOLLARS A YEAR  EIGHTH YEAR  NELSON:  THUBSDAY MORNING, MARCH 1 1900.  PRICE EWE  CENTS.  EVERY FOOT OF THE WAY TO LADYSMITH BITTERLY  Contested by the Boers in Strong Positions.  \z  Loxnox, March 1. -A dispatch lo the Daily Mail fiom Pieters  Station tinted Sunday, February 25th, and describing the five days'  continuous fighting, of which the attack upon Railway Hill by the  Royal Inniskilling Fusileers was one of supreme moment, says : "The  Inniskillings joined the column with twenty-four officers. They have  five men lefb. That tells the tale. No map, no penned account can  give an idea of the difficulties of those hills and ridges which succeeded each other like waves in a heavy sea, one giving away only  for another.  "Each one can be enfiladed, aud uutil one is taken, ib is impossible  even for the keenest scouting to know what fortunes lie beyond. The  The military problem changes as the column advances, each kopje refusing to give up its secret until the advancing troops touched its  crest. To add to the difficulties the tropical rain set in today. For  .twelve hours the uniforms clung to the men like wet seaweed, mud  caught them tinder fool, mists closed down and shut out the position  of the enemy."  Couoxso, Fobruaiy 20.���Yesterday an armistice was agreed upon  and both sides removed their wounded and buried tlieir dead. The  Boers lost heavily in attacking .and many were killed among the  trees. Severe musketry fire'was resumed last-evening. It was started  by tho accidental discharge of a rille. It is reported that there are  400 Boers near Ennersdal.  London, March 1.���"Winston Churchill in a despatch from Colenso dated Tuesday says: "Tlio condition of the wounded who were  uutended on the hillsides on Sunday was so painful that general  Buller sent a Hag of truce to the enemy and it was arranged that  throughout Sunday military movements should continue on both  sides, but that there should be no shooting. This truce ended at  dark. The Boers then resumed a furious musket fire on the British.  The attack was repulsed. Fighting continues vigorously. We shall  see who can stand "bucketing" best, the British or the Boers."  Mr. Churchill then goes on to say there is abundant proof of the  Boers using a large proportion of illegal bullets. No fewer than five  different kinds of exploding or expanding bullets have been found.  Tie also asserts that the Boers are employing armed Kaffirs and adds:  "I have always tried to be fair toward the Boers, but after making  every allowance, ib must be said they show when in strength, a very  dark and cruel underside of charaeler.'N  London, March 1.���4.1o a. m.���General Buller's distinct success  in storming Pieter's hills brings the rescue of Ladysmith near, but  .the war office intimated last evening that an immediate announce-  men tof relief need not be expected. The goings to and fro at midnight of officials and messengers suggest that' important (news had  been received. If this were the case lord Lansdowue obviously desired to sleep on.it before taking the public into his confidence as his  message reveal*. " . _.  General Buller's successful attack came after the hard fighting of  Friday, and it was improvised'and its execution began during the  armistice of Sunday. In proposing an armistice the British commander stipulated that both sides should 'be free to move, but,  neither should do any shooting. He was therefore within his privileges iu immediately beginning to transfer his troops. <  ������ 'General Buller's tidings come weighted witli his long list of  casualties. His losses in four attempts to got general "White out  aggregate four thousand men.  L'ulysiuifeh is in the deepest straits. Mr. Charles "Williams, the  military expert, says he learns on very high authority, presumably  that of lord Wolseley, that general White's.force is almost afc its last  gasp. -"This, is not so much," says Mr. Williams, *'on account of any  lack of provisions or ammunition, neither of which is yet exhausted,  as because of tho poisonous waters of Klip river, and the evil effects  of tho heat. Tlio water of the river is not available for drinking,  and to boil it id impossible on account of the scarcity of fuel. It is  thick wifch-putiid animal matter;���Tea made of-it-has a suspended  fibre, something like beef ten. It is caused by the sewage from the  Boer camps."  Tho Boers, as it now appears, havo built a railway from Ilarris-  mith to Kroomstadb to facilitate the movement of their troops  between Natal aud the Free Stale. Mafeking was holding out ou  February 10th. At that time the Boers were showing unusual  activity and firing inflammable shells. Tho Boers who hold positions  south of Orange river have weakened.  M  fa  R  HER MAJESTY'S MESSAGE  ' To'Roberts'and His Troops.  London, Feb. 28.���In her despatch  to lord Roberts following the surrender of general Cronjo, the queen  said: "Accept for yourself and all  under your command, my warmest  congratulations on this splendid  news."    .  "��� Lord Roberts replied as follows:  "All under my command are grateful! for your majesty's most  gracious message. Congratulations  from their queen are an honor that  the soldiers dearly prize."  General Buller has- wired thanks  thanks to the queen for her telegram of "gracious bympathy and  encouragement."  Stoini in Illinois,  Chicago, Hi., Feb. 28,���Reports  i'edeived at the various railroad offices iu this city show that the  storm continues with unabated  fury throughout the west and  south. The snow in many places  in Illinois is reported from one to  three feet deep on the level and  has compelled the abandonment of  of many local freight trains. Passenger trains have been "double  headed" and are moving, though in  most cases considerably behind  time. High winds accompanying  tho storm have completely blocked  the harbor of Chicago and not a  steamer has attempted to leave here  today.-     , "  Kimberley Still Short.  Ki.mheri.ky, February 28.���The  Diamond Fields Advertiser draws  pointed attention to the fact that  although Kimberley was relieved  about two weeks ago there has  been no amelioration iu regard to  the food supply. It is still impossible, as it was during the investment, to procure a tin of condensed  milk or cocoa without -a medical  certificate.  Afrikander Intrigues.  London, Feb. 28.���The Brussels  coriespondent of the Daily Mail  says, as a result of special inquiries  in Boer circles here I am able to  corroborate fully the reported  danger from tho intrigues of the  Afrikander Bund.  PREMIER JOE HAS GOT .TWO  Obscure Ministers.  Victoria, February 28���[Special  to The Tribune].���Joseph Martin  has accepted the task of forming a  ministry, tind says he will have the  names of three colleagues to announce when the house meets today. The legislature will bo dissolved today aud Martin says the  elections will be held at the earliest  possible date.  Victoria, February 28���[Special  to The Tribune].���Contrary to arrangements the house was not dissolved today, orders to the ser-  geant-at-arms to prepare for the  visit of the lieutenant-governor  being countermanded a few minutes before the hour for assembly.  No message from his honor was  communicated to the house and  only after indignant protests from  several members did Joe Martin rise  to state that he had been called  upon to form a government, but  had not yet been sworn in, and,  therefore, Avas not in a position to  speak for his honor. The house  knew the fact from the newspapers,  therefore he did not think it necessary to speak.  The house adjourned at 3 o'clock  after some useless discussion. Martin makes no announcement of his  colleagues yet, but Brown of New  Westminster is here and is credited  with accepting the portfolio of finance, while young Mr. Mclnues arrived at noon today and is mentioned as a likely colleague.  Victoria,    February     28���11.80  p. m���[Special to The Tribune]���An  explanation of the  change of programme for the prorogation is now  forthcoming.    It is that shortly before   two  o'clock Brown   received  word from Ottawa to have nothing  to  do  with  Martin's cabinet,  and  Brown, being postmaster at Westminster, thought it advisable to decline   the   portfolio   he   had   previously accepted.   The other   colleague   Martin   had  ready to announce was Smith Curtis, of Grand  Forks, who has been in business in  this city for some time.    Curtis was  a law partner of Martin's in Manitoba.    It was prematuroly��reported  that Mclnues, junior, had arrived  with the intention of entering the  cabinet.   It seems the young mau  is.still at Ottawa, but well informed  quarters assert that a place will be  kept for   him.       The  Times   announces this as a sure thing.  The legislature today indulged in  a good deal of chaff at the expense  of the Mclnnes family. Irving offered as reason for the delay in the  proceedings that "my son Willie  has not yet arrived/' and later  when Martin was invited to sing  ���*He Never Came Back," Irving offering to follow with "Papa's Pants  will Soon Fit Little Willie."  Ambitious - local politicians are  leery of Martin's cabinet, and several are reported to have declined  invitations to -join;���There-seems  too, to be no prospect of Dunsmuir  being associated with it. The local  feeling is that if Martin does succeed in forming a ministry, it is  doomed to defeat.  Victoria, February 28. ��� Midnight.���[Special to the Tribune.] ���  Martin tonight announce** the acceptance of office by alderman  Jf. S. Yates of Victoria, as provincial  secretary, and Smith Curtis as minister of mines. lie has also issued  a manifesto of policy, which includes the government construction  of a railway ftom tho Coast to  Kootenay, and a continuance of the  eight-hour law with an effort to  find means to remove the friction  between owners and miners.  LADYSMITH   IS   RELIEVED  By General Buller.  LONDON, March 1���9 a. m.���  The War Office officially announces that Ladysmith was relieved this (Thursday) morning.  No .details of the fighting have  been as yet received.  The dispatch is as follows:  "Lyttleton's headquarters, March  1.���General Dundonald, with the  Natal Carbineers and a composite regiment, entered Ladysmith  this morning. The country between me and Ladysmith is reported clear of the enemy. I am  moving on Nelthorpe."  As Discussed by Germans.  Berlin, February 28.���General  Cronje's surrender continues to interest the German press. Nearly  all of the papers today admit the  importance of the ovent. The-offi-  eial Nord Deutsche Allgemeine  Zeitung, discussing the situation  says: "Its importance lies less in  the number of captured men than  in the revivifying of initiative  among the British generals. The  biggest military injury which it has  done in so far as the Boers are concerned is that hereafter and everywhere in the seat of the war the  British will dictate the law to the  Boers. It is impossible to estimate  now the degree of depression among  the Boers, but undoubtedly the depression is iu tense. The reports do  not tell whether the Boer losses  previous to the surrender were  large. If they were, then the total  injury is still greater."  Cronje's Miscalculation.  Paardeberg, February 20.���Yesterday was observed as  a  tacit armistice,  the Boers  freely showing  themselves   to  the  British.      This  correspondent has conversed  with  many Boer prisoners, who say that  the war  must end  iu British  victory.   They had never before believed tho British would be able to  advance except" by railway.   They  supposed the efforts to relieve Kimberley were due to the necessity of  securing   tho   Kimberley-Mafeking  line whence the advance into the  heart of the Transvaal would bo  easy.    General Cronje, it appeal's,  had refused to believe it possible  that the British would make a long  march away from the railway.    He  totally misconceived the object of  the   strategic   movement   of   lord  Roberts,   imagining   that   it    was  merely a change   of   direction in  order to attack  Magersfontein  by  way of Jacobsdal. Ail the prisoners  seemed-.convinced when the British  get to Pretoria some foreign power  will intervene.    It  becomes  more  evident that the great  necessity in  tho successful conduct v��f tho campaign  of  lord Roberts  are larger-  Supplies of horses.  Conservative Association's Officers. ^  The annual meeting of the Lib:  eral-Conservativo Association was  held last night in the board of  trade rooms. "A largo number  turned out, and the meeting was  quite enthusiastic. There was a  contest for the office of president.  The candidates were Fred Irvine  and John Elliot. The former was  successful. Frank Fletcher was  elected first vice-president aud John  Toye second vice-president. S. M.  Brydges was re-elected secretary-  treasurer, The_ following-named  are iu the executive: J. A. Kirkpatrick, D. M. Carlcy, Christopher  Morrison, W. A. Macdonald, J. K,  Amiable, John Elliot, Thorburu  Allen, J. II. Bowes, T. G. Proctor,  P. Lamont, D, McArthur, A. Ferland and II. R. Cameron, Dole-  gates were also elected to-attend-a  convention at a point, to bo hereafter named, to nominate a candidate to contest the constituency for  tho Dominion house of commons,  An attempt Avas made to commit  the association to run the coming  provincial election on party lines,  but it was dropped without a vote  being taken.  NORTH STAR MINE TO MAKE  Regular Shipments.  The North Star mine near Kimberley has entered the ranks of the  regular shippers. N. M. L. Curran,  the superintendent, passed through  Nelson yesterday on his way home  from Rossland. In conversation  with a TRIHUXI3 representative, he  said:  "The North Star branch of the  Crow's Nest Pass line has been completed, as has been the aerial tramway from the mine to the railroad.  This last has not yet been taken  over by the company, but it is  working very Avell for a new tramway. The mine had shipped two  carloads of ore up to the time I  left."  "How much ore do you expect to  ship regularly?"  "The capacity of the tramway is  100 tons per day, aud the directors'  orders are to keep the tramway going at its full capacity for a month  anyhow, ancl that rate of shipment  will likely be kept up. The ore  goes to Trail, but is to be smelted  at Omaha and Great Falls, as the  former has plenty of lead ore on  hand while the two latter are in  need of a wet ore to mix with their  dry ores."  -   "What wages do you  pay," was  tho next question.  "We pay  $3 in  dry places and  #3.50 in wet places and in  shafts.  All the work so far has been  hand  drilling.    Wo have machines on the  ground but they have  not started  up yet.    Wc employ between  CO  and 75 men right along aud  have  never had any trouble with them."  "When asked as to the amount of  ore in sight Mr Curran  would  not  give any exact   figures,  but said  that its value exceeded that of the  capitalization of the company. The  company is capitalized for  $1,500,-  000,   so   there   must   be - immense  reserves    of   'ore     blocked     out.  The s'fcock in the company is' practically all  owned  by ten   eastern  capitalists, Dan  Maun.-who owns  one third, W. Mackenzie, who has  only a small interest, Sir William  Van Home, Mr. Ross and others.  MINE-OWNERS' CONSPIRACY AGAINST UNION LABOR  What it Means to the Mining District of Kootenay.  Eoberts and Cronje Meet.  Paakdkkhkcj, February 27. -  Wheu Cronje was brought into the  British camp his face was absolutely  impassive, exhibiting no sign of his  inner feelings. 'Lord Roberts was  surrounded by his staff when general Pettyman, addressing the field  marshal I said: "Commandant  Cronjej sit I" The commandant  touched his hat in dilute and lord  Roberts saluted in return. The  whole group then dismounted and  lord Roberts stepped forward and  shook hands with the Boer commander. "You made a gallant defence, sir!" was the first salutation  of lord Roberts to tho vanquished  Boer leader.  Had to Kestram Canadians.  Loxnox, March t.���A dispatch to  the Morniyg Post from Paardeberg  says: "The Canadians weie only  prevented from carrying general  Cronje's laager with the point of  the bayonet by imperative orders  to the contrary. Their gallantry is  the universal theme of conversation. We captured 5000 small  arms. Our splendid shell fire had  scarcely any appreciable effect on  the Boer trenches. Their wounded  during the Aveek numbered eighty.  The number of dead Ave have not  I yet ascertained,"  Persia Arming.  New York, February 28.���A���dis-  patch to the'Herald fiom Teheran,'  Persia, says: "British influence and  prestige in Persia ha\'*e completely  vanished, Russia is victorious in  the diplomatic contest so long continued, and the shah, Avhose health  is now better than for some time; is  making hasty Avarlike preparations  in his anxiety to demonstrate his  antipathy fcoAA-ards Gicat Britain.  The grand sirdariat has oidered the  speedy completion of the recruiting  of soldiers* throughout Persia, according to plans, the' carrying out  of AA'hich has been delayed for  years. The resei'A'ists Avill also be  enrolled, and all officers and privates now on leave of absence Avill  be recalled.  Heavy Casualty List.'  Loxnox, Fob. 28.���The rapidly  growing casualty lists are being  classified as quickly as possible.  Thoy show that up to this morning  tho total number of casualties Avas  12,841, of which 2.310 avci'c added  during the fortnight. Ton out of  eleven Scotch regiments lost about  20.10 men and eight of the Irish  regiments 2000. Then come the  Gloucesters and Northumberlands,  Aviiile of jiearly 2000 colonials, the  the Royal Canadians lost 181t and  the Victoria .Mounted contingent  20. - The casualties are classed thus:  Killed 1093, Avounded 0838, missing  3173, disease 830.  Rejoicing in Cape Colony.'  C.wn Towx, Fobruat y 28. ���There  has been cxtiavagant lejoicing in  Cape Colony and Natal at the surrender of general Cronje. Crowds  oi" people li:iA-o been parading the  streets of the different tOAvns, singing and cheering. Flags have been  everywhere displayed' The Avar-  ships and merchantmen haA'e been  dressed Avilh bunting and salutes  havo been fired. At Durban, Natal,  the Stars and Stripes haA'e been flying alongside the Tnion Jack over  the toAvn hall.  Traitor Turned Down.  Loxnox, February 28. The result of the election Avhich took  place in South Mayo yesterday, for  a representative in parliament in  succession to Mr. Michael Davitt,  avIio resigned its a protest against  the Hocr AA'ar, was as follows : Air.  John O'Dounell (Nationalist) 2115),  major John McBride (Nationalist),  It is as clear as sunlight that the events transpiring in Rossland  are actuated by motives far different from those given out, and that  there is an organized conspiracy on foot. What has already happened gives a pretty clear indication, not only of the object of the conspiracy, but of the plan of campaign by Avhich its objects are to be  effected.  First, what are the actual facts? Shortly before Christmas a  meeting of mine-owners was held, attended by Messrs. Collins, Robert-  sou, Robbins, Hastings, Campbell and some others of less importance.  It Avas understood that matters of weight had been decided; what  they Avere Avas kept a careful secret.   That is fact number one.  Fact number tAvo is that joint action Avas taken in the War Eagle,  Center Star, Hall Mines, Le Roi, and Boundary properties controlled  by Messrs. Mackenzie and Mann, to reduce the number of men employed very materially, and to startle the business elements of the  community by a complete stoppage of production.  Fact number three is the circulation of reports intended to dim-  age the credit of the merchants in Rossland. These reports emanated from Toronto. They cast a wholly undeserved slur upon a body  of men doing business OA'er a territory almost as large as Great Britain.   That is merely a detail.  Fact number four_ is the binding together of the store keepers of  Rossland in an organization which, upon a given signal, would completely destroy the town forever as an outfitting and supply point.  Fact number'five is the patrolling of all the properties in operation by a corps of specially organized police, and the circulation  through the" editorial columns of the principaPnewspaper of a Avildly  improbable story of a deep aud dangerous conspiracy among the  Avorking men.  Fact number six is the sudden appearance in Rossland of large  bodies of the most undesirable class of aliens, avIio are being dealt  Avith, probably through an interpreter, in the miners' union hall.  These are the facts to go upon. They point clearly to a definite  conspiracy toAvards a definite end. What is that end? The mine-  oAvners Avish to free themselves from the dictation of union labor.  They say that Avhile the eight-hour laAV is bad, and increased the cost  of working mines considerably, the continual holdups they are subjected to on the part of the executives of the unions are Avorse; that  i their submission to reasonable demands only led to the immediate enforcement of unreasonable demands. Noav it Avould be taking au altogether partizan view of the "situation if it AA-ere not admitted, at once  and freely, that there is something iu the mine-OAA'iiers point of view.  Many friends of organized labor have been disgusted by the extravagance of talk and action indulged in iu Rossland;' There is always a  tendency in organizations, not only labor organizations, for the men  avIio constitute the back bone of them to pay their dues and alloAv  matters to drift Avithout tlieir personal supervision.' Policy is then  dictated by- the selfish, the discontented and the rapacious. This is  the analysis of every political party, no matter what the height of its  ideals may be, and labor organizations are not likely to be exempt  froin so common a vice. -  ' But that does not prevent the working men of Rossland from being, on the whole, a body of men possessed of common sense and the  best virtues of citizenship. If the mine-owners of Rosslaud had been  firm in marking the limits of the influence of unions, and had at the  same time freely acknowledged the beneficence of organizations within their proper limits, there Avould h;iAre been and could have been no  danger of trouble. If, in a word, they had used icason instead of attempting force they Avould havo found au answering reasonableness  on the part of the great majority of tho men. They have, however,  undertaken to fight the unions as such, and haA'e of course raised the  antagonism of the best men to whom unionism is a sacred principle ;  although they are prepared to do much also for their employers' interest, recognizing that steady work aud good feeling make'thd best  "guarantee of prosperity.  The end which the mine-owneis have in vieAV is plainly indicated  by the events Avhich have occurred. Uoav is their attack to effect  its purpose? There are Iaa'o or three thi tigs [AA'hich they expect to  happen. First a general strike .on the part of union labor. If this  occurs they have done their best to eut off supplies. Such a strike  AA'ould play right into their hands. itAvould demoralize the unions  through the drifting away of their members. Second, a resort to personal violence against the labor imported, or violence against the  mines themselves. This would realize their Avildest dreams. It  AA'ould break the poAver of unionism for all time in the Rossland district. Third, the gradual bankruptcy of.tlie unions through the having to look after the hordes of aliens they propose to dump on them.  It Avill require the greatest amount of self restraint and prudence oil  the part of the Avorking men to prevent the ruin of the community,  and a fearful bloAV to tho prosperity of the province.  The campaign inaugurated by the mining companies is apparently designed to haA'e any one of these results: either .a strike involving  thousands iu ruin, a labor Avar accompanied by violence, shattering  the basis of British Columbia's future for five years at least, or the  substitution for the present free white population, of a beastly mob  of garlic eating aliens from the slums of Europe. Granted that the  arrogance of official unionism required the curb, it could haA'e been  found, easily found, in the reasonableness of the great majority of  the men. It must be confessed that a campaign inaugurated, Avhich  is designed to have such disastrous and anarchical effects fills-anyone  avIio appreciates its true iiiAS'arduess Avith horror and dismay.

Nel-  gDhe \%xxbnnz+  Lieutexant-goverxor McIxxks  sprung a surprise upon the people  yesterday in  calling upon Joseph  Martin  to form  a ministry.    Just  Avhy his nonor  should have made  such a choice is probably known to  but Martin  and  himself.     But it  should   be   remembered   that   his  honor  reATels  iu   surprises.    When  Mr.  Semlin  was contending   Avith  premier Turner for the office of adviser to his honor it pleased the  lieutenant-governor   to   pass   over  the members of the legislature who  represented the electors and summons a man avIio had neither a seat  in the house or a political folloAving.  Iu vieAV of this former action the  present choice of Martin, Avho has a  seat but no following, other than  the Dunsmuir interest, should not  occasion Arery much Avon der.    It is  doubtful   if there is   anyone who  imagines, that Martin will be able  to control the next'legislature.    lie  is generally regarded as an impossible man, and it AA'ould not be surprising if his selection by his honor  should result in uniting the Semlin  and Turner followings throughout  tho province.    In such event there  would be no chance for any other  political combination.    It is fortunate that the house lias not granted  supply for the coining year.    This  will necessitate an immediate election aud thus cut short the reign of  Martin.           Joseph Martin has as yet failed  to tell the members of the legislature Avho he Avill summon to his assistance   in   the , work   of   advis-  %   ing   lieutenant-governor   Mclnues,  Something may be expected today,  however.   In the meantime it looks  "as if the new cabinet Avill be com-  .__ posed_ of_ political_soreheads. Mr._  BroAvn of KeAv "Westminster, has  already put  in an  appearance at  ��� the capital. Thh is taken to mean  that lie is uoav prepared to give up  his job of postmaster, at New "Westminster, for the oflicc of minister of  finance, the desire to retain Avhich  forced him out of provincial politics  some years ttgo. As everyone expected, "William Wallace J {nice Mc-  J nues, the lieutenant-governor's  eldest son, is ulso ou tho ground  again. The taking of the younger  Mclnnes into the cabinet is generally regarded as one of the condi-  -tions upon which Martin wits .summoned to form a ministry. The  lieutenant-governor has also another son, av-Iio acts as his private  secretary and Avrites political let-  terb to the noAVspapers: but his  name has not yet been connected  with a portfolio.   Tiik returns of the port of Nelson  for the month of February do not  bear out   the   statements   of the  croakers that business in Nelson is  stagnant.     The   A'alue of the imports entered through the poi t of  Nelson for the month was $44,751  as against $27,481   for tho corresponding month of 1890, an increase  of something over sixty ver  cent.  Of these the value of the dutiable  goods wa^> $11,400 as against $25,-  015, and the value of tho free goods  $3258 as against $1800.     The col  lections for the jiast month aggregated $11,818,50, AA'hich is rather  small for the port of Nelson, although it sIioavs an increase of  about sixty per cent over the collections for February, 1899.  The Trihune voices public sentiment in this section of Kootenay in  declaring that "Joe" Martin is not  wanted as a member of any government in British Columbia. He is  selfish, vindictive, mercenary, heartless, and above all a.turncoat. No  such man should haA'e a place in  public life in this province.  Public opinion is against the importation of the class of men that  the mine oAvners of the Slocan are  bringing in from Minnesota. Public  opinion often finds methods to  make itself felt.  COAL.

Cape Town, February 28.���The  governor of Cape Colony, sir Alfred  Milner, has further postponed the  Cape parliament to April 6th. He  has also issued a proclamation announcing that the military authorities are authorized to impress wagons, horses, oxen, pioA'isiou.s' and  o tl Tern ecessi ties in southern colonies, the articles thus taken to be  paid for at a fair A'alue.

London, Feb. 28.���S p. m.���The  Avar office has lecoivcd the following despatch from lord Roberta:  '���Paardeberg, Feb. 28.���Cronje with  his family left here in charge of  major-general Prettymau and under the escort of the "City Imperial  Volunteers aud Mounted Infantry."  Later in the day the remaining  prisoners Avent in charge of the earl  THE BANK OF  BRITISH   COLUMBIA  NELSON  Is now prepared to issue Drafts and  Letters of Credit on Skaguay," U. S.f  Atlin, B.

I understand  that great dissatisfaction was felt  by the Boers at Cronje's refusal to  accept iny offer of safe conduct to  tho women and children and medical care for the wounded, 170 of  whom are now in our hospital. Very  many of them are in a terrible  plight for want of care at an earlier stage. I inspected the Boers'  laager yesterday and was much  struck by the ingenuity and energy  with which the position was made  almost impregnable to assault."  United States Railway Matters.  New York, February 28.���It is  stated that the fact that the Erie  and Western Transportation Company (the Anchor line) which con-  tiols the largest fleet of freight  carriers on the great lakes, has val  uable terminals at  Buffalo  which  will   practically    pass   into   their  hands   tomorrow,   is    the   reason  given by Pennsylvania railroad officials for their proposed surveys to  Buffalo with a view to buildiug a  new line into that city.    The terminals   of   the   Erie   &    Western  cover .: some twelve   acres on the  lake front in Buffalo, biit they are  insignificant both in size and value  compared with those of the Western New York & Pennsylvania railroad, which the Pennsylvania could  buy   if   it   wished.   The Western  New York road is, however, burdened with tremendous capitalization, both in stock and bonds, and  this fact is given by the Pennsylvania people as their reason for not  wanting it, as they could never expect any return  on the  money invested for purposes of control.

IRON   KINGS   AT   WAR.  Pre&surc to settle H. C. Frick's  $21,000,000 claim before reaching  the courts, against Andrew Carnegie, the white-Avashed Scottish-  American multi-millionaire, having  failed, a battle royal will now, it is  believed, be fought out to a finish  in the courts of law of tlio United  Slates. Mr. Carnegie has offered  Mr. Frick the bum of $0,000,000, but  the latter desires $21,000,000 as a  settlement. The suit it is certain  will reveal the manner in which  the American protective tariff enabled the formation of a syndicate  or organization which practically  lobbed the American nation of hundreds of millions and defrauded  thousands of bread winners out of  a fair rate of wages for a fair day's  pay. Indeed the "sweating" process was indulged iu to such an extent that it became imperative upon the part of the employees to assert their rights in the matter of  the wages being paid them. Men  of the stamp of Carnegie, Rockefeller and others who pose as philanthropists in giving to charities,  libraries, universities and kindred  institutions of their means, much of  which they have no furthur use for,  arc not entitled to any credit or  public sympathy for their conduct,  as what they are giving back to the  public is theirs by right, for from  them millions upon millions have  been \\ hat might well be termed  feloniously extracted. Au American contemporary discussing the  lines of policy wliich Mr. Carnegie  lias of late years  been   following  says:  Mr. Carnegie's eulogy of poverty  is made the more intelligible by the  recent revelations  of liis partner,  Mr. liYick.   According to that gentleman Mr. Carnegie's own estimate  of tha net profits of the Carnegie  Steel Company for 1000 is $10,000,-  000.    As   Lhe Carnegie   interest is  58^ per cent the Carnegie share of  these profits would be $23,400,000,  and a man who has nn annual income  of that amount may safely  praise poverty without the fear of  being overtaken by an ironical fate.  He may even make gifts of millions  to librairies with perfect impunity.  The figures are-stupendous, inconceivable almost, and although it appears that the estimates are far in  excess    of   previous   returns,   still  there was a clear profit last year of  $21,000,000, of which Mr. Carnegie  was entitled to   $12,285,000.   The  revenues of Denmark, with its population of more than two millions,  did not much exceed the possible  dividends of this single industrial  concern.   Upon the  showing that  has been made it is evident that if  Mr. Carnegie really did yearn to die  poor he would have to work harder  for that purpose than ever he did  to build up his great business.    Mr,  Frick, indeed,  makes  light of hih  labors hitherto.   He intimates that  he had grown rich in spite of himself.    It was while he was living in  New York or coaching in Scotland  that the millions began to pile up  at an unprecedented rate.   All lie  had to do was to keep'hands off and  spend as much as he could, while  the serviceable Fiick went on doubling the value of the r>$\ per cent.  But even with all that lie has learned of'spendiug and of working too  it is, certain tliut <-o long as Lhe income of 23 oi of 12 millions K maintained it will be impossible for him  to impoverish  himself,  nor would  the prospects be much butt or it1 ho  should take out his pi iiu-ipal, which  is  calculated at $137,050,000^   For  he is now 01 years* old, and it is not  mere  waste that  he contemplates  or indisciiininato giving, but a well  considered    distiibution    in    sums  ranging from a few thousand to a  few  millions.     That   will   loqulre  much patience aud study.    .Supposing that the gift" aveiaged $100,000  each,  they would haA-e to be  bestowed upon moicthau i,TOO institutions, and to '-cek thorn out and  decide upon the  merits of  tlio respective   applicants   would    be   a  tremendous task.

FULL LIKES OF WINTER AND SPRING SUITINGS  "WEST RAKKB STREET' NELSON  OPPOSITE SILVER KINO HOTET  CITY LOCAL NEWS  J. H. Bowes has entered into  partnership with Davis <fc Ward  under the firm name of Davis,  Bowes & Ward, the individual  members being E. P. Davis, Q. C, of  Vancouver, J. H. Bowes, city, and  Cecil Ward, city. The firm have a  line suite of offices in the new Madden block.  The steam heating apparatus at  the general hospital Avas turned on  i'or the first time last night and is  woiking satisfactorily.  A. O. Campbell of Vancouver,  president of tho Vancouver Hardware Company, is in the city on a  business trip.  Parties coming in from Spokane  yesterday state that the smallpox  epidemic has apparently died out.  No new cases have been reported  for a week or ten days, aud the 23  patients at the pest house are well  on the way to recovery. The quarantine established at the infected  houses about the city has been  raised, and the citizens are pursuing their ordinary manner of life.  Dr. F. J. Ewing, who is the physician on the Balfour construction,  has returned to the city and will  make his headquarters here permanently until the work is completed.  He will build a hospital at Five-mile  point, 40 x 60 feet, capable of accommodating 50 patients. An  operating room and office will be located at one end, and the kitchen,  for which a separate biiildhitj will  be erected, at the other. Dr.  Ewing's staff of nurses and cooks  will be along in a day or so.  Chief Thompson, who has charge  of the work of renovating the  shack districts in his capacity of  sanitary inspector, will commence  his rounds shortly. He will notify  tho owners or occupants to have the  premises thoroughly cleaned up,  and if the order is not complied  witli. prosecutions will follow in  every case.  P.. L. T. Galbraith of Fort Steele,  Indian agent for Kootenay district,  arrived in Nelson last night. Ho  reports all the Indians in his charge  as immunes, and there is little dan-,  ger of smallpox spreading among  them. Mr. Galbraith says the tramway at the North Star mine, near  Kimberley, is in successful operation, and that regular shipments of  ore will be made from this time on  to one of the smelters in tho Cnited  States. Arrangements have also  been made to ship Crow's Nest Pass  coal and coke to mountain points  via the Crow's Ne&t Pass to Creston, thence over the Nelson k JBed-  lingtou to Bonner's Ferry, where,  connection is made with the Great  Northern railway. Before returning home, Mr. Galbraith may take a  run down_to.Victoria, _where he sat  for many years as Kootenay's only  member of the legislature.  Another ease 'has been added to  the county court list, that of Campbell vs Craig, an action on account.  Galliher k Wilson aro for the plaintiff and Macdonald & Johnson for  defendant.  Mrs. II. D. Hume, who has been  seriously ill, is doing better now  and is quite out of danger.  The building occupied by the  Miner developed a tendency yesterday to feink. The building settled  four or five inches, and would probably have boon going down yet  ,had not a force of men with heavy  timbers and jack screws put in adequate supports.  II. G. McCuIloch has returned  from Trail where he superintended  the sampling of a shipment of 80  ton& of ore from the Beatrice mine.  The shipments yielded returns of  $97 per ton. The ore is a galena,  and runs 40 per cent lead. *  r Four cars of plant havo arrived,  in the city for the Ontario Powder  Company and will bo shipped to  the works at Six Miie Point today  on a barge. These cars contain  the first installment of plant for  the works, and other shipments are  expected within the,next fortnight.  Daniel Smith, president of the  company, will remain in Nelson for  a couple of months.  F. W. Swannell of the inland  revenue department reports the  collections for February at $3916.77.  Of this amount spirits contributed  $2001.07, malt $374.7S, tobacco  $459.52, raw leaf $151.40, and cigars  $330.  G. D. Travis of Vancouver, high  chief ranger of the high court of  British Columbia, I.O.F., left for  Dawson City yesterday. During  his absence the duties of the high  chief ranger will be discharged by  F. W. Swannell, PoH.C.R., of this  city.  George Dah, the eight-year old  sou of the Galician family quarantined aboard the Moye, is critically  ill. ��� The little fellow is developing  pneumonia and his pulse and temperature are so .high as to cause  the physician in charge considerable  anxiety.  An alleged case of smallpox has  been discoved at Nakusp, the patient being Mrs. McCuIloch, wife of  the C. P. R. agent at that point.  Dr. LaBau, medical health officer,  went up last night to vaccinate the  C. P. 11. men. He was accompanied  by captain Gore, port captain of  the C. P. R. steamers.  The Ontario Powder Company  has leased the store on the Ward  street front of the Madden block  formerly occupied by the Montgomery Company. The firm will locate  their Nelson office in the premises,  and Hugh McPherson will be placed  in charge. i'  Edward Cole of Phoenix, has recorded the transfer of a sixth interest in the Friday mineral claim,  located on the Salmon river, adjoining the Porto Rico mine, to M. E.  Graham of Bode.  The Nelson chapter of the Royal  Arch degree A. F. and A. M., will  be instituted on Monday evening.  E. E. Chipman of Kaslo, grand su-  perintendendent of the degree, is  expected in the city to conduct the  ceremonies.  J. McDonald, of D. McArthur &  Co, goes to Kaslo today.      ,  The P. Burns' company'^ office  staff moved into their new quarters  in'the Burns block last night.  E. N. Chaumette of Vancouver,  who is installing the cold storage  plant in the Burns block, says that  lie can complete the work within a  month. Up to la^t evening a decision had not been arrived at as to  whether the plant would be operated by steam or gas.  The following telegram explains  itself: "London, "England, February 28, via Montreal, February 28.���  Mayor, Nelson: Cordial thanks for  your congratulations. Lansdownc."  The '"Pink Tea'" given by the Ladies' Aid Society of the Methodist  church at the parsonage last night  was a pleasant function. The interior of the pastor's home was  handsomely decorated in pink and  the ladies in attendance wore the  same color liberally about their persons Jn dainty bows, aprons, etc.  Little tables were arranged in the  dining room at which refreshments  were served during the evening,  and parlor games were in progress"  after tea. An excellent programme  was also given. The affair netted  the society a substantial sum.  The friends of II. TI. Bowden of  the Hall Mines' smelter staff" are  somewhat concerned about him.  He has been unwell lately, and at  his request ho was granted a short  leave of absence from his duties.  lie was noticed in town on Monday  last at about one o'clock in the  afternoon on Baker street, since  when his friends have not seen  him. He has not been to his house  and it is feared that he may have  been taken suddenly ill or has perhaps in an aberration of mind-wan-  dcied away. If" anyone has seen  Mr. Bowden since Monday or kuows  anything of his whereabouts, he  will be conferring a favor by communicating with J. J. Campbell at  the Hall Mines smelter.   -  Two men came to the police in  dire distress last night. One of the  two, Haskins by name, stated that  he had lost $300. He had been  drinking ancl suspicion fell on a  man who was seen in his company.  The other man, McDonald, had $800  B��im  Stoves   Stoves  We. have the finest line of COAI HEATERS ever displayed in the dis^,  trict.

The police are investigating.  'The plug in the tee at the end of  the six-inch main on Baker street  came out iu some manner last night,  and for a time the stream created  havoc in the neighborhood. Chief  Thompson shut off the water at the  corner of Stanley and Baker streets,  and the plug will be replaced today.  The collections at the city hall  for the month of February  amounted to over $4000, or twice  tho amount collected in February  last year.  Settling the District.
