CRONJE SURRENDERS WITH  All His Troops.  . London, February 27.���The war  ollice lias received the following dispatch from lord Roberts: "Paardebcrg, February 27- 7: lo a.m.���Geueral Croujo aiul all of his force  capitulated unconditionally at daylight, and ho is now a. prisoner in  my camp. The strength of his  force will be communicated later.  I hope that Iter majesty's government will consider this event satisfactory, occurring as it does on the  anniversary of Majuba."  London. February 27.���The secretary of state for war announced in  >thc house of lords this afternoon  that the prisoners captured with  general Cronje numbered about  8000 men. General Cronje will be  sent to Cape Town. The officers  captured by Roberts besides Cronje  include the following well known  commanders: Chief commandant  Wolverans, member volksraad; field  cornet Frus, Scandinavian; major  Albrecht, the famous German artilleryman; major von Dewitz, a distinguished German officer, responsible for most of the splendid engineering works of the Boers since the  both tho house of lords and house  of commons today. Reference to  tho Canadians evoked immense and  prolonged cheering. Balfour, government leader in the house of  commons, said he had no information relative to Boer guns.  London, February 27���0.35 p.m.  ���It is announced that Roberts has  notified the war office that the  number of Boer prisoners approximates '1000, of which about 1500  are citizens of the Orange Free  State and the remainder citizens of  tho Transvaal.  BUSINESS IN THE SLOGAN  commencement of the war. Twenty-nine Transvaal officers were captured and eighteen Free State officers . made prisoners. The guns  captured from the Transvaal forces  were three 75-centimeter Krupps,'  nine one-pounders aud one Maxim-  gun. cFrom the Free Staters the  British captured one 75-centimeter  Krupp and one Maxim gun.  London, February 27.���Tho wa r  office  has  received  the   following  dispatch     from      lord      Roberts:  "Paardobeig,   February    27th.���11  o'clock   Tuesday    morning.���Prom  information furnished daily by the  intelligence department  it  became  apparent   that    general    Cronje's  " force was becoming more depressed  and  that   the   discontent   of   the  L, "troops " and   discord    among    the  leaders   weio    rapidly ^increasing.  ^ This feeling was doubtless accen-  ,   tuatcd    by    the'    disappointment  caused  when  the  Boer   rein forcemeats,    wliich    tticd    to    lelievc  Cronje, were defeated by our troops  on   February   23rd.       1   resolved,  therefore, to bring pressure to bear  upon   tho    enemy.       Each   night  trenches  were pushed forwaid to-  watd the enemy's  laager, ��o as to  gradually contract his position,and  at the same time  I bombarded  it  heavily  with  artillery,'-which  was  yesterday aided by the arrival of  four   six-inch  howit'/crs,  which   I  had ordered up from De Aar. - In  carrying  out   these   measures  tho  captive balloon gave great assistance, by keeping us informed of the  dispositions and movements of the  enemy.    At 3 a.m.  today a most  dashiug advance was made by 'the  Canadian regiment and some engineers supported by the First Gordon  Highlanders and tho Second Shrop-  bhires,  insulting in our   gaining a  ~poiiifc some O00"yard��"liearertlie cnT  einy, and within about SO yards of  his trenches,   where  our  men entrenched    themselves   and    maintained their positions  until  morning;.    A gallant deed worthy of our  colonial comiades, and  which lam  glad to say was attended by a comparatively slight loss.    This apparently clinched matters, for at day-  light the letter signed by general  Cronje, in which he stated that he  surrendered   unconditionally,   was  brought to our outposts -under a  flag of truce.  "Jn my reply, I told Cronje he  nuisfc present himself at my camp,  and that his forces must eomo out  of tlieir laager after laying down  their arms. By 7 a.m. J received  Cronje, and dispatched a telegram  to you announcing the fact. In the  course of a conversation, he asked  for kind treatment; at our hand*,  also that his wife, grandson, private secretary, adjutant and servants might accompany him where-  over he might be sent. I reassured  ,liim, and told him that his request  would be complied with. I informed him that a general officer would  be sent with him to Cape Town, to  insure his being treated with proper  respect; while enroute. He will  start tliis afternoon uudor charge  of major-general Prettyman, who  will hand him over to the general  commanding at Cupe Town."  "The piisoners, who numbered  about 8000, will be formed into commandos, under our own office! h.  They will also leave today, reaching  l\J_odder River tomorrow, when thoy  will be railed to Cape Town in detachments."  The above dispatch was read iu  Picking ud Quickly.  Nkw   Di:nvkr,   February   27.���  [Special  to  the  Tribune.]���If   the  presence of commercial men in the  camp presages good times and general prosperity,  stirely the fact is  realized,    for   regular    hordes    of  drummers are touring through the  Slocan.     No less than nine  were  here ou Sunday, and   every day  sees the procession  continuing in  volume.     General travel, too, has  greatly increased, as hotel men can  testify.    More strangers are seen in  the camp now than for a year past.  Sundry odd capitalists have put in  an appearance, aud talks of several  deals are iu  circulation.    Business  is  reviving   generally,   and many  new enterprises are being started,  particularly    at    Sandon.        This  change has been brought  about by  the settlement of the labor troubles  in. the camp two Aveeks ago, and the  indications  are  that   the    coming  season will be the best the camp  has yet experienced.  The Hartney group, on Silver  mountain, is just now .looking its  best, having a splendid showing of  ore in all the openings. In the  lower drift there is two v feet  of ore exposed, of1 which ten  inches is solid galena.* The  Hartney will make a great mine.  On May 1st the next payment falls  duo, amounting to 10 per cent,, and  there Js every ^probability that jib  will be met.  Ab the Fnterprise mine the force  has been doubled. Ore is being  sacked and shipped iu carload lots  to the smelter at Everett, Washington.  The Payne shipped out 300 tons  of ore la?t weelc by the Canadian  Pacific. Upwards of 100 men are  employed at the property.  The Noonday lead has,, been en-  epuntered on the Adela claim,  owned by Messrs. Tiiomlinson and  Bolander of this town.  It is expected the i Slocan Star  will soon be in full operation.  Store men are ^offering in the  camp than there is room for at  present.  Petitions have been circulated  throughout the district praying  the minister of justice to give an  intelligent interpretation of the  Dominion alien law, and if it does  not apply only to American citizens to have "it_so"amended-as~~to~  affect all foreign Countries. They  have been extensively signed.  Copies will be sent to the provincial  and Dominion governments anil to  sir Wilfred Laurier.  CONFUSION NOW REIGNS IN  Politics at Victoria.  Victoria, February 27.���[Special  to the Tribune.]���Lieutenant-governor Mclnnes today refused his  sanction to tho coalition deal which  was arranged last evening,, by  which five members of tho opposition were to desert Turner for the  government, and today dismissed  premier. Semlin. It was reported  that D. G. MacDonell of Vancouver,  had been called upon to form a ministry, but this has since been denied.  ' Victoria, February 27.���[Special  to the Tribune.]���When the legis  has no annpunceh..'3ut to make tonight. The gentlemen he has consulted have probably nob yet decided who will, head their combination.       ���  HOW THE EUROPEAN PRESS  When the  lature   met   at    2:30   o'clock   this  afternoon premier Semlin said that  he had last night advised the lieutenant    governor   that     arrangements had been completed whereby  the government were assured of an  efficient control of the house.    This  morning he had received a communication    from    his    honor   in  which he declined further to be advised by him   and   his colleagues  and stated that he was about forthwith to seek a new adviser. Semlin  offered a resolution declaring  the  regret of the house that his  honor  has seen fit to dismiss his advisers,  as they have an efficient control of  the house.   He asked the house to  divide upon this latter, in order to  make perfectly clear the position  of the government.   Tho resolution  sets forth that it is  undesirable at  this time to interfere with the legislation or the business of the house ;  and that the legislature therefore  regrets the action of his  honor in  dispensing with the services of his  advisers.  The debate is still in progress. In  the course of it Turner asked Semlin if the lieutenant governor had  signified who was advising him,  and when answered "No," Turner  said there was then no government  and that an extraordinary state of  affairs existed.  Victoria, February 27���[Special  to The Tribune].���The coroner's inquest occupied the legislature until  close on six o'clock, when a verdict  was returned against the lieutenant-governor by the adoption of  Semlin's resolution declaiing the  dismissed government to have the  confidence of the house. Three  members of the opposition voted  for it, these being Baker, Helmcken  and Irving. The debate was confined almost exclusively to the  opposition. Turner, Baker and Mc-  Bride made interesting revelations  and confessions of their share in  the overtures for a coalition which  have been in progress, and were  roasted by Martin for the abandonment of principle for the prospect of  office. Martin warmly resented the  attacks on the lieutenant governor  and held that his honor had taken  the only possible course in dismissing Semlin, He held that after the  defeat of Friday Semlin had only  two options, to resign or ask for a  dissolution, and that to attempt instead a deal with men_who _had  just voted no confidence in him  was simply intolerable.  Pooley scored the members of  the government for bringing in  such a resolution as  this when not  Depew in Form.  Washington, February 27.���Mr,  Depew of New York addressed the  senate today on the Philippine  question. His oration wtis beautiful iu thought aud diction. He  strongly uphold tho policy of the  administration and in conclusion  pictured so brilliantly commerce  and civilization jnoving hand in  hand for the happiness and uplifting of the people of the Philippines  as well ab those of this country  that tho galleries were swept by a  storm of applause.  Chinese Getting Ugly.  Pbkjn, February 27.���Tho anti-  foreign attitude of the government  grows more pronounced daily and  is regarded as extremely menacing  *to foreign enterprise. Never in bhe  last forty- years has bhe central  government been so intensely anti-  foreign- Several Chinese have been  impeached and imprisoned because  they assisted in obtaining concessions for foreigners.  Plagud Breaks Out Again.  San Francisco, February 27.���  The steamer Australia arrived  fiom Honolulu today. The Associated Press correspondent at Honolulu, writing under date of February 20th, says: "After twelve days  passing without sign of the plague,  three eases were discovered yesterday, and all ended fatally."  .one of them had been man enough  to enter a word of protest against  the governor's arbitrary course in  dismissing Turner, aud held  they  were   entitled    to    no   sympathy  whatever now that they had been  subjected to tho same treatment.  Higgins spoke to the same effect.  '  Repeated requests to Semlin  to  read tho lieutenant-governor's letter to the house brought  no response, and the premier could give  no information as to who had been  called in to replace him. "Prentice  offered light on this subject by raising a question of privilege with the  assertion that Dunsmuir and Martin had been called on and holding  that their   silence under the circumstances Avas an insult  to the  house.    The two members  named  were   called    to   the   government  house after Semlin's dismissal and  had   a long   interview   with   the  governor.  Dunsmuir took unusual interest  in the proceedings this afternoon  and, meeting Baker in bhe lobby  after Baker's speech in favor of the  Semlin motion, eluded him for his  course and applied the epithet  ���'turncoat," to which Baker made a  spirited response. The two were  about to come to blows when they  were separated.  Rumor has it that Dunsmuir is  the choice for premier, and au official announcement is expected tonight.  Victoria, Feb. 27.���Later���[Special to The TribuneJ���The governor  Views Cronje's Capture.  Amsterdam, February 27.���The  evening papers generally express  the opinion that general Cronje's  capitulation does not mean the end  of the war. The Algemein Handels-  blad says : "Ibis a long way between lord Roberts,and Pretoria."  The Nieuwerterdamsch Courant  says : "We awaits with confidence  the further course of events."  Berlin, February 27.���The German newspapers are disappointed  at the surrender of general Cronje.  They admit that lord Roberts has  shown real military ability and  dash, and that the Boers have lost  in Cronje their most skilful leader.  Vienna, Feb. 27.'���The Australian  press regards the;capture of general Cronje as the' most important  incident of the war thus far, and  the first decisive;: British success.  The Wiener Algemeine Zietung  says: " The Boers have now shown  that they are not strong enough to  maintain the offensive and the  British have struck a blow that  cannot fail to haVe. the greatest  possible eifecb upon the future  course of the war."  Rome, February 27.���The capitulation of general Cronje has produced a painful impression in Rome.  The Tribuna says: "The capitulation is undoubtedly important, but  it does not conclude the war."  The Sanfulia says: "General  Cronje attained the object he desired, namely, to enable a great  part of general Joubert's army to  reach Bloemfontein."  The Opinione Liberal, which  writes ironically of the Surrender,  says: "The British will do well to  make lord Roberts the duke of Paardeberg, and lord Kitchener' the earl  of Petrnsburg, b_tfci*hey will also do  well to make peace."  Paris, February 27.���The news  of the surrender of general Cronje  has made a considerable impression  in Paris, Tho Temps, in tin article  headed '"Honor to both combatants," appeals to Great Britain to  end the war, saying: "If England,  once unfortunately engaged in this  struggle; could nob emerge by ac-  cepting the humiliation of defeat, it1  appears to us that ^hc will do well,  and reconquer the sympathies of all  nations if, after having given proof  of her snpet ior strength, she knew  how to stop herself, and in so doing  stop the scenes of destruction and  carnage now unfolding themselves  in the Orange Fioe State."  Honor Where Honor is Due.  London, February 28 ���After advising tho continuance of the 'war  preparations the Times concludes  as follows,: "But if anything could  enhance the intense and widespread  satisfaction of the nation ab the  achievements of our .troops, it is  the knowledge that the Canadian  contingent played the principal  part in the decisive movement  which forced the stubborn Boer  leader to own that he was beaten."  The Daily News says: "To the  Canadians belongs tho honor of  having hastened the inevitable. It  would bo rash, however, to suppose  that the Boers will sue for peace or  that all our diffieultiesare removed,"  BRITAIN'S JECJPTION   OF  Roberts' Achievement.  LonAon, February 28���4.30 a. m.  From John O'Groat's to Land's End  there has been cheering today for  the queen, and a universal singing  of tho National Anthem. This,  with mutual congratulations, is the  Briton's way of celebrating the  most cheerful day of the war. Already he is taking stock of the situation and measuring the future.  There is no disposition to overestimate the success. - The government  entertains no illusions. As announced in the house of commons,  10,000 additional troops will immediately go out, and the effective  force will be kept near 200,000.  Lord Roberts has done more than  to capture 4000 Boers and a few  guns. He is within striking distance of one of the Boer capitals  .and is master of a large district of  the Free State. He has given a  shock to Boer confidence and has  immeasurably restored the spirit of  his' own troops. In capturing  Cronje he has taken a leader whose  presence alone was worth thousands to the Boer cause. The best  opinion here is that the Transvaalers are certain to continue the fight  with undiminished valor but it -is  not so certain about "the Free  Staters.  Lord Roberts has not allowed the  correspondents or descriptive writers with him to supplement his  plain narrative as yet and there  are some points in doubt. It is not  clear whether the 4000 prisoners include those taken in small parties  before the capitulation. What has  become of the rest of the Boers who  held the Magersfontein lines, and  where are the big guns? The small-  uess of Cronje's forces causes some  wonderment.  The morning papers without exception comment upon the achievement of the Boer leader and men  in holding off for ten days a force  six to eight times as large as theirs.  Bj itish opinion is far ihore generous  in victoryJihah in defeat.  Sir Redvers Buller is having a  hard time in Natal. It is evident  now after a fortnight's fighting  that he was misled when he wired  that there was only a week rear-  gum d between him and Ladysmith.  Apparently some of the hardest  fighting of the war took place "at  the end of iast week, as au armistice was agreed upon to allow of  attendance upon tha wounded and  the bin ial of the* dead. Both sides  must have lost heavily. At any  moment, however, news may come  of general Buller's success. Friday  will begin the fourth month of the  siege of the garrison, which is seemingly in a position Avhere it is unable to do anything to  help Buller.  Canadian Casualties.  London, February 27.���The.list  of casualties among the Canadian  non-commissioned officers and men  is as follows: Killed���Corporal S.  B. Whithey, privates F. C. Pape, G.  Ormon, F. AV.

London, February 2.S.���The Lorenzo Marquez con espomient of the  Times telegraphing Tuesday .says :  "Many foreigners are leaving the  Trannvaal and numerous government officials have started for Holland. Adelbei t Hay, United State1-  eonsul in Pretoria, is earning the  respect of both Boers and in blunders and proving himself tactful aud  assiduous,"  SCENES AND COMMENTS IN  ���    ��� London Last-Night,   London, February 28.--At all  the theatres and music halLs last  evening bhe wildcat enthusiasm was  displayed. Everywhere patriotic  pictures, songs and illusions were  applauded to the echo. When the  news arrived tit the house of lords,  there was a small attendance of  peers but the prince of Wales entered the chamber ju.*?t a* lord  Lansdowue was reading the message from lord Roberts. He immediately walked over apd ��at with  lord Salisbury, entering into a long  conversation with the premier.  The morning pa pert) are jubilant,  but they all warn the nation  against ovorconfidenoo. '  The Standard .-ays: "If lord Roberts had been allowed to prosecute  the campaign iu 1881 how different  the nfory would have been. But  the "nheel has run its full circle.  The errors and hesitations of the  Gladstonian era are nt length being  relieved.*'  The Times says: "The British  now- will do well to avoid illusions.  The effect of general Cronje's disaster is not to be calculated. It  may conceivably lead both the  Transvaal and the Free State to recognize that thoy are overmatched,  but a defeat of this kind, .serious  though ib ic, would not bring tlio  men of our lace to their knees, and  the Dutch are almost as stubborn  ancl tenacious."  addressing the volunteers at Guildford this evening, referred to the  "gratifying turn of the tide in  South Africa," and paid a high  tribute to the services of the colonial forces. He said that long  marches would . still have to be  undertaken and there might be  privations and further vicissitudes  in store, but the country would  never forget the deeds of her sous,  nor the great achievements of lord  Roberts.  WILKINSON  SUPPLIES   HIS  Valuable Suggestions.  London, -February 28.���Spencer  Wilkinson, reviewing the military  situation in the light-of general  Cronje's capitulation, says: "On a  moderate estimate one-tenth of the  Boer army has been taken out of  account by the capture of general  Cronje. The battle of Paardeberg  is a miniature Sedan.  "Tomorrow the whole of lord  Roberts' army, say 45,000 men, will  be ready-for a fresh advance, if, indeed,.the start be not made today.  The objective must be the next  Boer army of importance, which is  in Natal. The next i move, therefore, with a view-of drawing the  Boer army from Natal, implies an  advance on Bloemfontein or some  point on the railway" between  Bloemfontein and Wynberg, which  would sever the connection be-  bween bhe Boers in Natal and those  south of the Orange river.  "If th6 Boers make a stand west  of Bloemfontein so much the better.  AVith 45,000 men lord Roberts may  well be able to envelope and to destroy a respectable force. The effect of the Paardeberg victory .will  probably be a movement northward  of the Boer forces south of Orange  river.  "In Natal the effect will be moral  rather than strategical. The effect  of the elation on one side aud of  depression on the other will be  equal for the moment to the addition of a brigade to general Buller's  forces. The Boers in Natal have to  face a crisis, as, if they send troops  to the Free State, they will sa'eri-  fice the whole result of the long  campaign before Ladysmith. AVhile  not to send them will render probable a second aud still more important victory by lord Roberts a few  days hence."    ,  BULLER'S TERRIBLE  TASK  dis-  Pie-  do-  the  Pointed Out.  London,   February   28.���A  patch to the Daily Mail from  termarit/.burg dated   Monday  scribes at considerable length  enormous   difficulties    ot    geueral  Buller's task and says:    "The real  advance   began   last   AVednesday.-  The stupendous nature of the task  was only understood when, being  on the spot, one was able to r6alize  what ib means to hurl infantry at  positions aligned in every.direction  with carefully prepared   trenches  and with breastworks defended by  practically invisible riflemen armed,  with the most deadly rapid firing  weapons and aided by quick firing  guns which put all but our cannon  of   the   largest   calibre    into   tho  shade."  . London, February 28.���A special  dispatch from Colenso, dated Tuesday,   February   27th,   says:    "The  Boers are endeavoring to outflank  us, and severe  fighting  continues."  Coi.enso, February 25���(Sunday)  ���In the attempt of  the Inniskill-  ings on Friday evening to rush the  Boer position on  Pieter's  Hill, tho  Boer fire was so terrible  when the  infantry emerged from the cover of  the trees that almost every man in  the leadiug half of the company  fell wounded.  ^NELSON LOCAL .NEWS.  5Tefc Over.  27.-.Mr. Williiim  St. John Brodorick, undersecretary  of state for foreign  affairs, when  Work Not  London, Feb.  Ladysmith Heard From.  London, February 28.���The Daily  Mail has the following from Ladysmith dated Saturday, February  24th : "Yesterday the Boer retreat  continued. A party of about  seventy en route for the north  drew rein near Limit Hill. A battery of 15-pounders placed nob far  off, .suddenly opened fire and practically annihilated the party. A  Boer ambulance was later on seen  collecting the dead and wounded.  The Boers are trying to form a  biidge or drift across Klip river,  south of Umbulwana, evidently for  the purpose of permitting-the passage of wagons and artillery in  "their retirement from Colenso. Our  guns are preventing this work from  being carried on.  Correspondent Murdered.  London, February 28.���Mr. Par-  slow, the correspondent of the  Daily Chronicle at Mafeking, who  had previously been reported accidentally shot nnd killed on November 2nd was, it appears* from the  diary of i\ Morning Post correspondent and from a letter received  by tho Daily Chronicle, murdered  by lieutenant Murchison of the  British artillery, reputed to be a  man of fine persona! ability,  Koyal Congratulations.

Alit'NDKi.,  Feb.   20.--The  pressure,  Boers,  evacu-  undr British pressure, have  ated their positions in this neighborhood, retiring northward. In  the fighting hereabouts their loss  is thought to be considcrable,as 25  graves were found.  Traitors' Congress Postponed.  C.vi'i: Town, February 20.���The  Afrikander Bund congress lias been  postponed. The explanation given  is that owing to tho enforcement of  martial law in several districts the  members might possibly be unable  to attend.  H. E. Croasdaile, manager of the  Hall Mines, Limited, is in Toronto.  It is rumored that his mission to  the only wholesale city in Canada  that is unwilling to sell goods to  the merchants in the mining sections of British Columbia is "to dispose of the assets of the Hall Mines,  Limited, to Gooderham & Black-  stock, who are said to be willing to  -purchase a smelter.

The total receipts for the  month are ��3655 ($18,275); expense^ ��182$ ($0110). Deei ea?e -is  owing to a breakdown at flume."  Thin bihigs the total for the eight  months during which the 10-stamp  mill has been running to nearly  $200,000, of which $50,000 was distributed in a five per centdividend.  Talk of Peace.  London, February 2S.���.The Capo  Town correspondent of the Daily  Telegraph, telegraphing Monday,  say.��: "There is talk of peace in the  air. The English organ of tho  Afrikander Bund proposes the formation of a conciliation committee,  the object being, of course, to save  Boer independence."  "While lord Roberts was holding  Cronje at Paaideberg, ib is understood that general Frennh was  moving toward Bloemfontein."  Where are Cronje's Guns?  London, Feb, 28,���The military  critic of the Times suggests that  general Cronje probably buried  some of his big guns. AVith regard  to the large number, of prisoners,  the disposing of whom presents  some difficulty, the wiiler suggests  that they be sent to St. Helena, adding: "General Cronje, according  to a great precedent, might be accommodated with Hie large retinue  lie desires at Longwood."  Nelson's Congratulations,  AVhen the news of Cronje's surrender became generally known  yesterday, a committee of citizens  decided to send a cable of congratulations to tho war oflicc, and the  following telegram was despatched:  "Lansdowue, London.

Yesterday the province had  ��� no government; but the legislature  met and its members discussed the  action of his  honor  in  dismissing  premier Semlin and his colleagues.  According to the statement of Mr.  Semlin, his dismissal was received  after he had  given   an assuiance  that, by a coalition, his government  had again secured   control  of the  legislature.   This   would  make   it  appear that the dismissal was at  least   irregular,   though   probably  not more so than the dismissal of  the Turner administration before it  had an opportunity of meeting the  house.   Tho resolution introduced  in the legislature rby  Mr.  Semlin  yesterday, after his dismissal, was  virtually ^one of censure upon the  lieutenant - governor,     and      the  mere   fact   of   Mr.   Semlin's moving   it     suggests    that    he   has  some definite understanding  with  certain members of the opposition.  If thisr understanding goes  to  the  extent of these members easting iu  their lot with  the Semlin  party,  they can'make it rather unpleasant  for the lieutenant-governor's choice  as first minister.    Supply has not  been granted yet.   The legislature  may use this as a lever upon his  honor.   There is a persistent rumor  that Joseph  Martin will be called  upon to form a cabinet.    If supply  was granted it would  be possible  fpr him, in_the event of being called  upon, to administer the affairs  of  ��    the province until February  next  I    without calling the legislature toll    gether.    It is further hinted that it  r - was a prospect  of- this which reu^  1    dered the recent coalition possible.  |    Should his honor, in the event of a  I    show of strength in the legislature,  |    consent to a reconstruction of the  I    eabinel, a general election   will yet  \    be avoided; but in such an event  I    premier Semlin and every member  I   of his late cabinet who might again  J    accept office would havo to go back  ���    to his constituency.   The meie fact  of their dismissal would render this  j    necessary.    Fn the event of a satis-  I    factory coalition being effected the  j    present legislature   might  be   ad-  !   jounied   until   the new   ministers  ,  had  an opportunity to go before  their constituents and be again returned   as  member1,  of the legislature.       "  The Miner is attempting lo discredit the officials of the Dominion  government for selecting the lot at  the coz'ner of  Vernon and  Ward  streets for a site i'or a public building.    It is well known who inspires  the Miner's attacks.   The   parties  are interested in  real estate holdings at the corner of Victoria and  Ward   streets.      Every   wholesale  firm in Nelson i.s satisfied with the  site   selected.    No   complaints are  heard from three of tiie four banks  Ninety-five  per cent of the retail  merchants   are   well   pleased.     In  "fact,    a    Tmm'Nis    representative  found but one business man yester  day who expressed himself as opposed to locating the public building on the sito.selected. "'  The present mix-up in political  matters at Victoria has rendered it  easy for newspaper correspondents  to puff their respective favorites.  It matters little how absurd the  rumor may sound ; if the correspondent thinks the person to be served  would like to have his name connected with the ollice of premier,  why the connection is made. In  this way C. II. Mackintosh of Rossland, is set up as a strong man to  form a government; and Dr. Bowes,  also of Rossland, makes his appearance as an advance agent for the  strong man. Why should the place  go to a strong man? Every premier  the province has had has been advertised as a strong man ; why not  go in for a little variety and try a  fat man? If the conditions could  be changed in this respect Nelson  could put up a budding politician  who would put them all to shame ;  and he would not object to tho advertising cither.  ���The best solution which the Nelson Miner can suggest for tho present muddle at Victoria is the  'adoption of the system of party  government. While there is no immediate prospect of the adoption of  the Minor's suggestion, it would be  interesting to know where the  Miner would get off in such a contingency. Would the Miner continue to support the Conservative  party ? If so, would the Conservative party consent to reconsider its I  HARDWARE AND MINING SUPPLIES.

BOUNDARY   MINING   NOTES.  Within ten days tho steel on the  De.idwood ciimp spur of the 0. &  \V. railway should be laid to the  Mother Lode mine. The bridge  crews~~have~co~inpleted "tlieir "work"  on bhe last two trestles between the  Sunset ancl Mother Lode mines.  Seven to eight feet a day is being  made in cross-cutting the ore body  of the Mother Lode at' the 200-foot  level. The extent of the ore including the width of the drift opened  *by the crosscut is roughly 110 feet.  It is now being extended in an easterly dhection, as they aro out of  the ore m the west end.  Tlio crosscut from tho Old Iron-  bides into the Victoria, on tho :j00-  i'oot level, is now in .'518 feet, of  which 118 foot is in a, splendid  grade' of chalcopyrite ore. Tho  men are still going through the ore  body. Work will at once begin on  a crosscut in shaft No. 2 of the Old  Ironsides, at the 200-foot level.  When this has been driven about  40 or 50 feet an upraise will be  made to to the 100-foot level, thus  blocking out another immense reserve of ore. The upraise of ISO  feet on the Knob Hill, for an air  shaft, was completed several days  ago.  L. S. Afonlton-Barrett returned  to Greenwood from a trip to the  Golden Eagle in Brow n's camp. He  says that the new shaft to connect  with the winze at the GO-foot level  is all completed. This shaft and  the jwiu/.e gives a perpendicular  depth of 130 feet. The men are  now taking -water out of the same,  whuii work will be resumed in continuing the sinking.  Is now prepared to issue Drafts and  Letters of Credit on Skaguay, U. S.,  Atlin, B.C., and Dawson City, N. W. T.  who could appreciate their danger,  by the discovery of a well-defined  case of leprosy in the barge ollice  today. The victim of the dread  disease is Archibald Mandeville, 22  ycaiT. old, a native of Barbadoes,  AVest Indies. Mandeville had  plenty of money and said he had  come north in tho hope that the  cold weather would improve his  condition, lie will be deported at  once.    A   SWINDLER   AND   HIS   DUPES.  One    of   tho    most   remarkable  swindlers on recoid, AV. F. Miller,  whose bait of a promise of ten per  cent a week on all deposits made  ���with his so-called Franklin Syndicate, in Brooklyn, drew multitudes  to his net, is now in custody in New  Yoik, awaiting trial.    He absconded several months ago, when the inevitable   collapse   of   his   swindle  could be no longer staved off, leaving thousands to mourn their folly  in  having trusted him.    His press  agent, Cecil .Leslie, has published a  long 'confession in one of the New  York papers, which throws interesting  light on    Miller's  methods.  Starting out with his Sunday school  class  as  a nucleus, Miller,   who is  only twenty-three   years of   age,  rapidly extended his operations, until in a few months he had taken in  over a million dollars from people  of   all   sorts   and   conditions,   his  methods, now that they are exposed,  furnishing a  simple and sorry  commentary on the ease with which  an adroit humbug Avaxes fat upon  the  gullibility   of human   nature.  The  stroke of criminal  genius by  which    Miller  made   his   Franklin  Syndicate a veritable gold mine was  his  decision to pay depositors ten  per cent on the new business they  brought iu, in addition to their own  ten per cent a week on their own  deposits.   His press agent relates  that, among the deceptions he practiced was the calling up of imaginary brokers on the telephone, and  ordering largo purchases of stocks,  to impress the crowds of depositors  who flocked lo his offices.   After  Milleiv  had    absconded,   and    the  police were taking possession of his'  handsomely furnished   offices,  depositors actually fought with them  to get in with the new dupes they  weio -bringing, of whoso deposits  they were to be paid ten per cent  down.   Leslie states in his confession that 3iiller. a few days before  his flight, deposited $100,000 under  an assumed name with the AVells-  Fargo Exptcss Company, aud that  he lias an ample provision of money,  for his defence.   The Avide publicity which the case has been given  should have the effect of checking  the credulous fiom throwing away  their money, lured by auy form of  the   "get -licli    quickly" swindle.  But it is doubtful whether, so long  as human nature is what it is, a  swindling genius like Miller will fail  to find dupes.  Ho!

'    Josephine Street, Nelson B. O.  THE CITIZENS  CELEBRATE  lEoberts' Victory.  The news that Cronje and his  troops had at last surrendered to  lord Roberts was received in Nelson  between 11 and 12 o'clock yesterday morning, and excited great enthusiasm among the loyal Nelson-  ites, au enthusiasm that was accentuated by the fact that the  victory occurred ou the anniversary of the Majuba Hill disaster.  Nelson has sent many of her sons  to the war, and when it was known  that the Royal Canadian Regiment,  which includes four Nelson men,  took a leading part in the last and  decisive fighting, the enthusiasm  knew no bounds. Permission being  obtained from the mayor, the fire  department turned out in force in  helmets and uniforms and made a  triumphal run down Baker street  with a big Union Jack^ flying over  the truck.  A large number of citizens also  assembled on the open space where  the drilling contests are held, and  immense numbers of crackers and  bombs were let off in celebration of  the event. Flags were flying all  over town, and the loud cheering  aud mutual congratulations all over  town attested once more the fervent loyalty of all British Colum  bians. ���  HOTEL   ARRIVALS.  WAR   PRICES.  A Leper Deported.  New York, February 20. - Consternation was created among the  ofiieers and such of the immigrants  A newspaper correspondent who  escaped from Ladysmith gives some  facts regardiug~the~prietTof food in  the besieged   town.   Luxuries are  'beyond the means of the majority.  - Eggs aro 30s a dozen;   a   small  fowl is 18s Gd ; pumpkins, 12s each :  small vegetable marrow, Gs ;  a  tin  of jam, 12s Gd ; a tin of milk, 7.s Gd ;  a box of sai dines, 3s ; tobacco,  90s  a pound.   A case of whiskey was  rallied for ��HT>.   These prices show  tho effect of unnatural scarcity on  the value   of commodities.    Under  ordinary conditions when such  a  HcaiX'ity appears, or oven when it is  threatened by a combination of cir-  cumsttuiee-i, labor is diverted  from  other   occupations  to the production of the scarce commodity.   If  such ti   scarcity   should  suddenly  arise, the  immediate diverting of  labor   would   tend to  restore  the  equilibrium of values���that is,  the  values corresponding   to the labor  required in the production of each  commodity .   To make, say, chairs  worth six shillings each would  require vastly moio labor than   to  grow vegetable manows  now selling in Ladysmith  at that figure.  Such a disturbance of prices  under free conditions would in-  bnce chaii makers to undertake tho  growing vegetable mariows till the  equilibrium of prices would be re-  stoi ed. During a siege there is not  freedom to adopt the means of  meeting economic demands. The  ohstticles to production are reflected  in the pi ices.

This rule has had an exception in  thecase _of_ C5_P._IfiI],_wlio_ for_tho  past seven years has been deputy  collector of customs at Port Hili,  this county. Mr. Hill has tendered  his resignation to take effect at the  end of the present quarter, March 31,  and his decision in the mafcteris final.  Mr. Hill hag a business engagement  that may take him to Europe for a  few mouths, but we learn that he is  a candidate for legislative honors  in Kootenai county. While Charlie  has always been known as a "silver  democrat," these arc times of great  changes in Old Kootenai, and it is  not known at this office what party  the Port Hill man may align himself with.    Dufferin Compliments Canada.  London; February 27.���At a  meeting today of the British America Corporation the marquis of  Dufferin, who presided, referred to  the surrender of general Cronje,  and said that he could not refrain  from offering his tribute of admiration for the spirit of loyalty and  devotion which had induced that  great country Canada to despatch  across the Atlantic those noble battalions of gallant soldiers who were  risking their lives and shedding  their blood, as some 3iad aheady  done, in the cause of their queen  and in defence of the integrity of  their common empire.  Newfoundland Rejoices.  St. John's, Nild., Feb. 27.- The  colonial patriotic fund committee  far warded .$15,000 today to the  London Imperial fund as the first  installment of Newfoundland's subscriptions. The news of the capture of general Cronje was received  with every demonstration of popular enthusiasm. Newfoundland,  long suffering under the inconvenience of French fishing lights, is  especially glad that the Dutch problem is being solved in South Africa.  With Mafeking Relief Force.  Lorenzo Marquez, Monday, February 2G.���A despatch fiom Gaberones dated Thursday, February  22nd, says: "Chief Linchwe has  reported that he made reprisals upon the Boers near Sequani, killing a  few men and captiuing several  wagons and oxen. There were  some casualities on both sides. The  Boers at Crocodile pool notified colonel Plumer that, fearing the natives would attack the wounded,  they had placed their hospital within the laager. Colonel Plumer replied that the ambulance would of  course be respected, but the Boers,  he said, could not expect good behaviour from the natives while they  were invading the territoiy of the  natives."  v  Canadians Complimented.  Loudon, February 27. ���The prince  of Wales, who yesterday (Monday)  paid a visit to tho wounded who  had arrived at Southampton in the  ship Princess of Wales, singled out  the Canadians aud told them how  proud the empire was of them and  of their compatriots a\ ho had come  forward so loyally and spontaneously to make common cause with  the mother country'  A Quick Passage."

As very important business will be  transacted it is hoped that all members will make a point of attending, and also intending members.  J. Malliuson Williams left yesterday evening on a business trip to  London and Paris, accompanied by  Mrs." Williams. During his absence  the affairs of the Whitewater mine,  on Rover creek, now under bond to  the Mallinson West Kootenay Exploration Syndicate, Avill be looked  after by T. G. Proctor. Mr. Proctor expects to set men to work on  the property before long. Mr. Williams expects to be back in Nelson  inside of two months.  J. M. Williams, who went to Victoria with a petition asking for a  wagon road up Lemon creek from  Slocan City, has returned without  securing what he wanted. A meeting with the executive to discuss  the matter had been arranged, but  the defeat of the government iDost-  poned this indefinitely. As he had  been called to England on business,  he could not stay longer iu Victoria.  The matter has, however, been  placed before the prominent men at  the coast, and Mr. Williams hopes  that when things political resume  their normal shape it will receive  favorable consideration.  Crandon. Even with these improvements the . office is not what  it should be and the staff is  anxiously looking fonvard to moving into more commodious quarters.  At the mining recorder's office  yesterday the __ folloAving transfers  were recorded: Two-thirds in Leap  rear Pride mineral claim on the  north fork of Rover creek and two-  thirds in Leap Year Gem on west  fork of Rover creek, by G. J. Schlief  to J. J. Brown and C. J. Schlief.  Alan Forrester, provincial constable at Robson, was in the city  yesterday.  Tho sixth and last assembly under tho auspices of the Cinderella  club took place last night at Fraternity lntll. Herr Steiner's orchestra was in attendance aud the function was most successful.  When John Rodgers was acquitted on the charge of theft by  Mr. Justice Martin he was only  passing from the frying pan into  the fire. Since the trial he has  been drinking st'eadily, and yesterday chief Jarvis took him into custody on;the charge of vagrancy.  He was arraigned before magistrate  Crease, who sentenced him to six  months' imprisonment.  Judgment was entered yesterday  by the district registrar against the  Hall Mines, Limited, in favor of the  Bank of British Columbia for $202,-  3(58.92. No dispute was entered,  and it is understood that the bank  is fully secured. This is the largest  judgment ever entered in tho Nelson district.

The Tribune's correspondent at  Victoria wires that the Dickson, of  A company, who was wounded at  Modder River belongs to Victoiia,  and not Nelson as formerly supposed.  The annual meeting of the Nelson  Liberal - Conservative Association  will bo held in the board of trade  rooms this evening at 8 o'clock.  The secretary" announces that the  business to come before the meeting will be very important.  Tho city engineer is engaged in  the compilation of the contour  sketch of the district east of Ward  street and south of Latimer street.  It is proposed to lay sowcro in this  district, and tlio number of ravines  and gullies makes the proposition  somewhat difficult,  A. II. Finlay has been appointed  superintendent of the Okamigan  Free-Gold -Mines,���Limited, wliich-  are located on the Similkameen  river iu Okanagau. Mr. Finlay lias  had 20 years' experience as mining  and milling superintendent in Montana and Colorado, and was for a.  time in charge of the Dundee mine.  Several changes have been made  iii the arrangements at superintendent Troup's office on Stanley  street. One of the rooms formerly  devoted to filing old documents has  been neatly fitted up foi'Mr.Troup's  private u>,e, and the entrance thereto is guardud. by a clerk. Chief  clerk Craudon'fi desk has been  placed in the front office, and II. O.  Weir, of the rail department, is  also located in this apartment with  J*. Fleming, steamboat clerk. The  port steward will be found in tiie  office - formerly    occupied   by . Mr.  W. E. Hyndman, formerly assistant government engineer for Prince  Edward Island, is in the city for a  day or two, the guest of Fred E.  Beer. .,  Johu Petch was released from  the 'provincial jail yesterday morning on a writ of habeas corpus  granted by Mr. justice Martin in  chambers at Rossland. As has already been stated in The Tribune,  Petch was sentenced to one year's  imprisonment for theft by magistrate Boultbee of Rossland, and  brought to Nelson about a month  ago. W. A. Galliher applied for a  writ of habeas corpus on the ground  that tho convicting magistrate had  exceeded his jurisdiction iu making  Petch's sentence over six months.  Judge Martin upheld the contention, and Petch was set at liberty  yesterday. A. II. McNeil, Q. C.,,  represented the crown in the  matter.  The work of extending the outlet of ,the main sewer to deep  water will he commenced today.  City engineer McCuIloch, who is to  have charge of the work, will put  foreman John Mnnroe and four  men on the job. A coffer dam will  be built and used for the first 150  feet until deeper water is reached.  The remaining 225 feet is built byt  joining the pipes above water and  allowing them to sink: .The task  will take some two weeks, and as  the level of tho lake is now near  low water mark, the present is a  most advantageous juncture to  proceed.  E. A. Crease, police magistrate,  held a sitting of the small debts  court at the court house yesterday.'  McNeill Brothers stied John Hubbard for an account and defendant  oounterclaimed for wood. After  taking the evidence his worship  gave judgment in favor of plaintiff.  ���Tho Minor-seems-to -doubt-that  the daily edition of The Tiujsunb  is nearly double that of tho Miner.  Suppose the subscription books of  both papers are submitted to a  committee of advertisers for a decision. They will find that the circulation of Tun TmHi'NK i.s 1000  copies dtiily and that no copies are  sent out as "sample copies."  The undesirable citizens who are  given time to get out of town and  fail lo do so are certain to come to  grioJ", as has been evidenced several  times of late. The latest instance  is that of Martin O'Toolo who ' was  arrested a few weeks ago on suspicion of heing connected with a  robbery at the Lakeview hotel. He  was ordered out of town but came  back and was arrested. At yesterday's police-court a charge of va  grancy was registered opposite his  name and the magistrate sent him  to jail for four, months. O'Toole  was "touted" as a bad man with  whom the police did not wish to  interfere, but the sequel, does not  bear out this statement.  Since the Balfour extension contract was closed the C P. R. has  delivered 35 carloads of stock, plant  and supplies for J. W. Stewart,  and other consignments; are arriving dtiily. D. MeLeod, purchasing  agent for Mr. Stewart, has secured  prices from local wholesalers, and  states that almost in every line he  can do business more satisfactorily  in Nelson than in the East. He  anticipates placing several, large  orders within a short time. The  camps will not be in full blast for  ten days yet, and the stock in hand  will last only, a short time after  work begins in earnest.  The ico still holds good at the  rink and a couple of rinks of curlers  had a turn at the "roarin' game"  yesterday morniug. The players  were: C. E. AVilson, J. F. Weir,  P. Lamont, J. H.
