BULLER FORCES REPORTED WITHIN STRIKING DISTANCE  Of Ladysmith, and Fighting Over Difficult Ground.  London, February 2(5.���Tho Times publishes tho following dispatch from Colenso, dated Sunday:    "Tho  British  are  now  within  two miles of being in touch with Ladysmith, but the ground still to"  be  covered   is  tho  hardest part nnd very severe fighting must be  expeeted."  Coi.i-N-M., Saturday, I'Vbiuary 21.���The lloers who been reinforced made a stand on Thursday at Groblor's Kloof and on a range  of hills running east. Thoy had been forced from their positions on  the right. General Lyttleton's division on Thursday advanced under  court" of the kopjes. The Boers fired a cruesoto and "Long Tom."  The British artillery Avas well shellered in'the action at daybreak  and until late iu the afternoon when a heavy rifle firo on both sides  developed. The British infantry had advanced n mile and a half and  a continuous lire was kept up until after dark. Tho Boers stuck to  their position. Tho Bi itish ai tillery fiie was irregular. A few salvos  were sent toward the thickly wooded spots and ravines from which  the Boer fire was the heaviest. The Boers sent shells into the headquarters, close to the hospital, but no material damage was done.  General Wynne was slightly wounded.  The Boer positions are not considered strong, with the exception  of Groblor's Kloof. The lulls eastward are not so high and cannot  be entrenched as well as the mountains which the British have taken.  The Somersets were the first across tho position on Wednesday and  they were subjected to a heavy firo for five hours in au isolated  position. It was the fir-at time they had been under fire and they  behaved excellently.  On Friday a severe rifle fire was resumed on the right and front  from the positions held over night by both sides. The British naval  guns, howitzers, mountain and field batteries shelled the Boer trenches  incessantly. The Boers replied with two heavy guns, some of their  shells bursting over the hospital. As a result tho British wounded  were removed. During the afternoon the fifth brigade, the Iniskill-  ings and Dublins leading, began to advance up the hills. In spite of  the constant shelling the Boers stood up in their trenches aiming deliberately down the hills. The infantry advance aviis further covered  by parties on the right and left firing A*olleys. It AA-as slow, the  British taking advantage of every bit of natural cover. The Boers  on the crests of the hills as Avell as from the trenches part of the way  down, poured lead among the advancing line. At dark the British  infantry had reached Avithin a few hundred yards of the first line of  < Boer trenchos. ' " )  / DENOUNCED AS    UNTRUE  A Political Board of Trade.  Tho Kaslo Board of Trade is  sonu-Avhut noted for sending broadcast opinions and petitions on all  manner of questions, and recently  it fired a long-winded petition to  the provincial legislature on the  evil effects of the eight-hour law.  It contained so many statements  that were untrue that the miners of  Slocan City haA'e seen fit to issue a  circular to counteract its effects.  The Slocan City miners need not  have gone to the trouble, for the  Kaslo Board of Trade is not taken  seriously by any one acquainted  Avith the manner in which it is run.  The Slocan City circular reads as  follows:  CRONJE STILL KEEPS UP A  .  CRONJE'S. POSITION MORE  Hopeless Than Ever.  Pa.u.i.-'-I.I'-I-G, February 23.���General Crouje's position is more hopeless than ever. Our guns dominate  the sloping ascents from the river  "on all sides and by the rush of- the  Shropshire; on Wednesday night up  the liver bed the Boers lost 200  yards space in their cover. The deserters say the British fire has been  very deadly and affirm that general  Cronje himself is Avilling to surrender, but is overborne by the  young Boers from the TransA'aal.  There are women and children Avith  the force. Gencial Roberts proposed to let them pass out of  danger, but this suggestion, as Avell  as the proffer  of medical  aid, has  ���been rejectee^���The kopje captured  by   the   British   last  Wednesday,  * Avhen 50 prisoners weie taken, is a  most important strategical position.  Its possession should enable us to  repulse any Boer reinforcement..;  from the eastward. _  London", Sunday, February 24.���  The Avar office publishes the follow-  . ing despatch from Lord Roberts:  Paardebcrg, February" 2_.--l__.30  p.m. Parties of Boers recently arrived from Natal attacked our outposts iu force again yesterday.  Thoy Io.it a good many, killed and  wounded and nearly a hundred  prisoners,  including a commandant  , nhd three field cornets. Our casualties Avero four officers wounded,  nine men killed, 23 men Avoundecl  and two men missing. On the 2lst  and 22nd one oflieer and 13 men  were Avounded, and six men Avere  Avounded yesterday by hollow  nosed Mauser bullets. Tho nickel  case is slit Avith four slits making  the projectile of bhe most;expansive  and explosive nature possible. A  wounded Boer brought to our hospital yesterday had (50 of these bullets in his pockets. During the advance to and at Kimberley the  casualties Avere, officers two killed  and 13 Avounded; men four killed,  78 wounded (the officers casualties  had previously been leportecl.)  Barkly West Occupied.  London, February 20���3.53 a.m.���  Lord Roberts has sent the following additional advices to the AA'ar  office: "Paardebcrg, Saturday, February 21.- Methuen reports that  Barkly "West was occupied by our  troops on February 22nd. The  loyal inhabitants displayed great  jpufchnsiasm.   The country svesfc of J  the railway from Capo Town to  Kimberley is gradually settling  down. A detachment has "started  from DcAar for Britishtojvn, aud  Douglas and Prieska Avill shortly be  A'isited by our troops. Methuen'*;  a-jcouut of the admirable manner in  which the Khnberley hospital is  managed makes one desire to send  some of our sick and Avounded  there."  POSTOFFICE sifTsELEOTED  The Choice a Good One.  The   Dominion   goA'ernment has  selected the ground at the  southeast corner of Vernon and 'Ward  streets for the .site for tho proposed  public building at Nelson. No other  location AA'ould be more acceptable  to the people who have business to  -transact-with the Dominion government.    The si'/e of the plot is 75 by  120 feet, Avhich is sufficiently large  for   the   purposes   required.    The  property is owned by T. J I. Griffin,  avIio foi'  many years avsis mining  recorder   and   court   registrar   at  Nelson, and avIio now resides on a  farm nearMaitlaud, Ontario. When  the portion of tho town suiweyed  in IS}-,, was offered aft public auction,  the lots in question were awarded  to John F. Ward at the upset price,  because of his having started the  first hotel in the camp,    lie erected  a log building on the ground during  the fall and  Avinter of that year  and conducted a hotel therein for a  year, Avhen ho caught tho Belling-,  ham Bay fever and  left for Fair-  haven, Washington,    lie leased tho  hotel to Ed Stewart and   Maurice  McDougall, and  they ran  it until  the spring of 1890,  when  it avus  turned over to John  Johnson and  M. 1). Mahoney.     They ran it for a  year, or until they built the Silver  King   hotel.     Shortly   after they  vacated it the building Avas pulled  down.      John   F.  Ward   returned  from Fairhaven, and Avas caught in  the Kaslo boom in IS93-1, and the  ground passed into the possession  of tho Hudson's Bay Company,    A  year or so afterward*? the company  sold it  to   Mr.  Griffin  for a  consideration of $1750, so ib is said.  Mr. Griffin now sells it to the government for $11,000, Avhich is a fair  profit for holding it for less than  five years.   Train into Kimberley.  KiAini3Kr__nr, Friday,February 23.  ���October's mail arrived today by  the first passenger train from tbe  south.  Whereas, a lengthy petition fiom  a body known as the Kaslo Board  of Trade to the provincial legislature, praying for the repeal of the  penalty clause in the eight-hour  law, aud as such repeal could only  result in nullifying the said law and  enable the mine owners to again enforce ten hours as a day's Avork in  opposition to the expressed Avishes  of the united labor element and a  large .proportion of the business  men of British Columbia; and as  the substance of the said petition is  almost entirely composed of the  most glaring falsehoods and misrepresentations, so mischievously  arranged as to menace the good reputation now justly enjoyed by  organized labor in the Slocan and  other Kootenay divisions; therefore, be it  Resolved, that the computation  AA'orked out in section   5, comparing  the output of the mines while Avorking to that of  the same  length of  time during  strike  and lockout  is  unfair, as it is  impossible to  make  an honest computation on the eight-  hour laAV Avithout a fair Avorking  test of the two standards: Further,  that sections 12, 13 and  li are simply1 fe'f}g^5)f special pleading against  the  righi lo^ miners  to an  eight-  hour laAV���an impudent assumption  of right to define  what is good or  otherwise for the Avorking man and  to  instruct  the  government as to  Avhether his request is really Avorthy  of consideration.   Further,  the insinuation  that  the strike  and organization of the  miners  has been  caused by   alien influence is altogether untrue, as the various unions  comprise   all the  British  subjects"  avIio are Avorking miners in the district, and  they  haAre always been  among  the  foremost  advocates of  the maintenance of the  eight-hour  law: and, further, Ave strenuously  object and protest against the  imputation that intimidation,  misrepresentation or coercion is iioav, or  has been, resorted to by the miners  in   the   unfortunate   struggle   betAveen labor and capital, and point  Avith pride to  tho  general obser\r-  ~ance~of~the  peace" throughout the  Slocan  district  for  the last  seven  months as au indication of the desire and ability of tho unions  to  preserve order in a trying crisis,  and   astonishment   must    be    expressed  at the spectacle of a  respectable   body   of   business   men  lending their name and reputation  to a document composed of misrepresentation, slander and   lies; and  proof to   the   contrary is  hereby  challenged.   Semlin May Go to London.  Victoria, February 25���[Special  to The Tribune].���Premier Seinlin,  after a consultation Avith the lieutenant governor on Saturday evening, was given until Monday" evening to make a proposition, and thus  the situation stands for the present.  There seems a- probability that  reconstruction under Cotton Avill be  attempted, but a Aving of the opposition party are directing their mud  batteries ou tho finance minister in  the hope of thwarting this scheme.  In any event, premier Semlin  stands a good chance of having the  London office if he Avants it, as the  members on both sides are well disposed towards him, thus lecogni'/.-  ing his long and disinterested services in the legislature.  Cape Dutch Threaten Treason.  London, February 20���1.35 a. m.  --The campaign is iioav approaching a most interesting phase, in  about a fortnight the congress of  the Afrikander bund will meet, and  it (is rumored that Mr. Iiofmeyer  will then propose peace terms on  the basis of the republics retaining  absolute independence, but offering'  to disarm.  Hopeless Struggle.  PaardbiiI'-KGi, Orange Fi;eo State,  Wednesday,     February    21.���The  fourth day of general  Crouje's fino  defence opened in startling fashion.  Soon  after   dawn   a most  terrific  rifle   firo   broke   out,  Avaking   the  sleeping camp.    It soon  de\-elopcd  that the Gloucesters and Essex had  lost tlieir Avay and had bivouacked,  in error, close to the Boer laager on  the north  sido  of the river.    Tho  enemy  fusilladed,  but the British  casualties   were   practically   none.  There Avas desultory Vi'ing all day  long~on both the  north  aud south  banks,    general     Knox's     brigade  pushing forward the line  south of  the   river,   Avhile    general   Smith-  Dorrien on the north  side  Avorked  toAvaid    the    laager.      Meanwhile  general French advanced  in  a far  easterly direction near a kopje held  by a strong force  of  Crouje's  men  reinforced by a  Ladysmith contingent.     At the same  time general  Broadwood's  brigade with   a battery of horse  artillery  took up a  position to the left and rear of the  same  kopje.     The front of the hill  Avas thoroughly searched by a  raking     fire.      Suddenly    the   Boers  bolted  from   every   side'  toAvards  general  French   who ��� .headed    to-  Avards tho drift, shelling vigorously.  Many Avere killed'by shrapnel and  about 10 were captured.*  Our first contact A\ith the Ladysmith Boers was singularly unfortunate for them. A, great deal of-'  forage, provisions and equipment  Avas captured-and the kopje Avas  frequently dotted Avith blood showing that many Avounded had been  removed.  A British doctor, Avho A'isited the  Boer lines to see the Avounded.-.  found the trenches along the river:  full of Avounded and saw many  dead.  The position today is practically  the same. The Boers aro .strengthening tlieir entrenchments around  the laager, but their case is hopeless. The capture of tte kopje today' has given the British a splendid position and Avill prevent a  Boer relieving force from reaching  Cronje.  Everybody admires the splendid  stand of the burghers, but, from a  humanitarian point of view, it is  considered that further resistance  on the part of general Cronje AA'ould  be criminal.  Today general Roberts sent general Cronje an offer for a" safe conduct for the women and children,  together with a free pass to any  point for them, and also an offer of  doctors and medicine. Crouje's reply Avas a curt refusal, and shelling  was resumed.  London, February 20.���A dispatch to the Morning Post from  Kimberley, dated Friday, says:  "General Cronje is reported to haA'e  plenty of provisions, but to be running short of ammunition. Mr.  Rhodes-is- extremely-hopeful-that  the Avar has icached its concluding  stage."  The Lorenzo Marque/, correspondent of the Times says: "The  feeling in official ciiclbs in Pretoria  borders on consternation. General  Louis Botha and piesident Steyn  aro both urging president, Kruger  to sue for peace. At, Bloemfontein  general Crouje's position is regarded  as hopeless.  Londox, February 20, ��� The  Times publishes tho following from  Paardeberg dated .Wednesday, February 25th : "General Crouje's  force have good cover from the  British artillery fire and have considerable stores of provisions."  PaaiU)i;i:i:R(!, Orange Free State,  February 23.���The British aro gradually closing in upon general Cronje  from all sides and making his position more impossible than ever.  During the course of last night the  British artillery poured in several  rounds. There was a terrible rain  and thunder storm early in the  evening. The Canadian*, avoi'o  heaA'ily engaged in Sunday's fight,  behaving most gallantly.  Paakdkumhw, Orange Free State,  Saturday, Febnury 21.--The British took SO prisoners as the Jesuit  of yesterday's engagement. A  balloon ascended and discovered  several new works, Avhich the British guns shelled yesterday.  A REVIEW OF CONFLICTING  Reports From Africa.  Nkw.Yokk, February 25.���In a  lengthy cable dispatch to the  Tribune, filed at London at 1 o'clock  this morning, Isaac N.Ford reviews  for his paper the varied and conflicting reports that Ave re received  yesterday from the two great news  centres of the South African war.  No says:  "The air was filled yesterday with  rumors of tho surrender of general  Cronje and the relief of Ladysmith.  One South African story supplied  definite figures and seA'eial decorative touches. The Boer force of  S000 Avas described as surrendering  after 1700 men had been killed or  wounded. General Cronje was reported as Avounded aud also lord  Kitchener. Another bulletin from  Cape Town stated that general  Cronje had been shot and that his  force had surrendered.  c'Equally elastic rumors were current both in Natal and London respecting the relief of Ladysmith,  where general Buller and general  White were reported to have come  into touch Avithout opposition. This  story Avas contradicted by a fresh  casualty list from general Buller,  Avith the names of three officers  killed and fourteen AA'ounded, aud  an addendum that owing to the  continuous fighting on Thursday, it  Avas impossible to estimate the  losses of the rank and file. The  lists represented seven battalions iu  Ilildyard's, Lyttleton's and the Lancashire brigades, and proved that  there had been something more  than a rear guard action on the  Avay to Ladysmith. This fighting  Avas described by special correspondents as occurring near Pieters.  the railway station about nine  miles from Ladysmith. General  Wynne, a popular stall' officer, Avas,  Avounded.  "The preps dispatches were  meagre from the two lival centres  of interest. These "brought the  story, of Cronje's defense up Jfco^.

Supplies had come up  from general Roberts' army, and  general French had taken over one  Boers North, of Kimberley.  Kimiikrlka', February 2*1. It ii  reported that the Boer;.

The guns had  beeu Avorking hour after hour on  Thursday and there Avore no signs  that Cronje Avas piepared to abandon the fight as hopeless. His only  hope lay in the arrival of a large  body of Dutch reinforcements; and  there Avere camp rumors that two  thousand Boers were close at hand  in the north.  '���Another despatch described the  bombardment of a Boer laager as  -lerrific-and the escape_of the-entrapped force as impossible. General Roberts was stated to be entirely lire pa red on Thursday to  deal with the Dutch commandos  Avhich Avon* seeking to break  through the cordon drawn tightly  around the river bed whore Crouje's forces were fighting to the  death. The war office was reticent  except Avium fiesh lists of casualties were posted, and the infci-  encc to be drawn from its .silence  was that Cronje had persisted in  his defence tinoughout Friday and  piobably Saturday.  "Press despatches from Natal  were even lnoiu meagre than from  Koodoosrand and the Boer reports  were unintelligible.  "Tiie effect of Cronje's rctrcat-and  'the retirement of general Joubert's  forces from Coleino upon the disloyal Dutch of Capo Colony wa^  shown in dispatches printed in the  afternoon edition of the Times.  General Brabant had opened negotiations with rebel Boer commanders at Dordrecht who had expressed a desire to know the condition', of submission. General  Clements had taken Lhe offensive  against the Dutch forces north of  Arundel and opened a heavy artillery fire upon their position on Friday with a prospect of capturing it  by     us-aulL An     unsuccessful  attempt hh.. made on the same day  near Capo Town to Avreck a train  carrying a detachment of London  Imperial Volunteers to the front.  "Theie Avere belated reports of a  successful attack by colonel Plumcr-  upon the Boer camp and rumors  that he had succeeded in forcing  his Avay to Mafeking. It Ava.s  understood when  the,  Avar    ollice  THE FIRST FAIR STATEMENT THAT HAS BEEN MADE  .Regarding Actual Operations Under the Eight-Hour Law.  The figures given in the War Eagle report just published are interesting in themselves and also in relation to the Avorking of the  eight-hour laAV.    They give, in a most careful and presumably correct  Avay, the various costs of Avork of different departments of the mine,  and form the only reliable basis of calculation Avhich has been published since the eight-hour law came into force.    Three periods are  available, namely, period one, from October 1st, 1897, to September  30th, 1898, period two, from October 1st, 1898, to September 30th,  1899, and period three, from October 1st, 1899, to December 30th, 1S99.  It Avill be easier to refer to these as periods one, two and three, than  to repeat the dates.    It Avill be noticed that in period  one the eight-  hour laAV had not come in force at all     In period two, it was in force  one-third of the time, and in period three all the time.    In the various  classes of Avork scheduled only tAvo are valuable for tho purpose in  hand, the investigation of the effect of the eight-hour law, namely,  drifting, which includes cost of hoisting aud superintendence in its  proper proportion, and cost of ore extraction per ton of ore sold,  which includes stoping, hoisting and superintendence in  its proper  proportion.    Sinking,   raising  and  general Avork, Avhile  the  figures  would  show more favorably for tho eight-hour Jaw than tho two  classes  chosen, cannot fairly be  included because  the schedule  of  Avages and hours in these departments A'tiries according to the nature  of the ground and character of the Avork, and in sinking, at least, the  number of hours worked A\ras always eight, even before the Jaw came  into force.    In period one the cost of drifting Avas $21.5*1. in period  two $22.78, and in period three $2(5.10 per foot.    TJie difference in  "cost betAA'een period one arid pel iod two is $1.24 per foot.    Suppose  Ave admit that that difference Avas caused exclusively by the eight-  hour laAV during the four months it was in operation, then the difference OArer the whole period AA'ould have been $3.72 per foot or 11 per  cent, as nearly as possible.    If Ave "compare period three with period  two, eA'en alloAving for the fullest extent of influence which the eight-  hour law would haA-e had, in period two Ave still find an increase in  cost of SI cents per foot, Avhich sIioavs there AA*as some factor causing  a progressive increase of cost apart from the operation of the law.  Temporarily assuming the law to be responsible for it all, Ave find an  increase of Avorking expenses under this head of If  percent.    Turn  uoav to the cost of ore extraction per ton of ore sold.    Dining period  one it was $2.98 per ton, during period two it Avas $3.58 per ton, and  during period three it Avas���$3.42 per ton.    Jf Ave followed the same  line of .argument as before, the cost due to the operation of the eight-  hour law would have increased from $2.08 to $ US'in period two, and  then fallen to $3.42 in period three. Which if it proved anything at all,  Avould go" to'shoAvthat the law had nothing to.do Avit.li the figures.  ftytt ris a matter of fact the heavy cost under this head in period two  'was due to the fact that ib was  the lean .and hungry level No. 4  Avhich was being mainly worked, AvJiile in period three stoping was  largely confined to the more normal levels 5 and 0.    1 f period two be  neglected and periods one and three contrasted, the difference in cost  Avill be found to amount to an increase of between 14 and 15 percent.  Now  an increase  of 14 per cent under the two head.s  considered,  means an increase of about 12 per cent on'the total Avorking expenses  of the mine.    Twelve percent upon the operating expenses fora year  on the basis of the necessary expenditure  to produce 50,000 tons of  ore means an annual sum of $32,500 or ljj per cent upon the nominal  capital of the War Eagle company.    Upon tiie market" price of the,  stock last summer it meant a possible decrease iu dividends of less  than one per cent, and of just one per cent upon its market price to_-  daj\   But everyone knows perfectly Avell that this increase of cost is  by no means due entirely to the operation of the eight-hour daw.  There is first the natural increase observable in every mine as tho  Avorkings become deeper.    And tbis is accentuated in tho case of the  War Eagle by the enormous direct loss the company has  sustained  -through-thV-occasional-stoppage and general -insufficiency of compressed air, as well as the later expense of maintaining subsidiary  steam plants* to supplement the electric compressor, not to mention  .the eccentricities of the hoist.    The figures quoted, howeA'cr they be  looked at, only go to prove Avhat a fuss has been made over nothing in  connection Avith the operation of tiie eight-hour hnv.   It has probably  increased the cost of working mines to a small extent, or has pre- ]  vented as great a decrease as might, otherwise have  been possible.  <  I "Bub there arc no indications visible iu the War Kagle report at least $  Lthat it is driving the mining industry into bankruptcy.  closed at midnight that no direct  word had been received frou either  general Roberts or general Buller,  ami the silence Avas interpreted as  meaning that neither had accomplished >hK purpose, although,both  were in a fair way to do so.  "General Bullet has clearly met  with stouter resistance than had  been anticipated and, while the relief of Ladysmith had been deferred  and rendered more difficult by the  Boer forces* in that quarter, it implied that the reinforcements sent  to tho Free State were Aveaker aud  less capable of breaking up general Roberts attack on general  Cronje. General Roberts, consequently, Avas stronger for the Avork  immediately in hand at Koodoos-  rand, and the Dutch reinforcements  hovering about cither fiank--north,  south and Avest���would be more  easily dealt Avith. The Dutch  allies Avere attempting at the la.^t  moment to rescue general Cronje  Avith a portion of their force, while  retaining their grip upon Lady-  sinith. Whereas, the only hope of  resisting general Roberts' onset lay  in the concentration of all their  commandos in the Free State.  The conditions under which  the  new campaign wu-. planned in  South Africa by general Roberts  and general Kitchener on the voyage to the Cape are described in a  letter from an officer on general  Kelly-Kenny's staff which.

'Here, sir,' was always on  hand, and the next moment the  conqueror of Kandahar and the  conqueror of Omdurman Avould disappear from tho deck and not be  seen again until the next morning  at the same early hour. A lai*go  cabin had been reserved for general  Roberts' use, and there lie remained  busy day after day with his chief  of staff until midnight, Avith no interruption except at short intervals  for meals, and no visitors unless a  member of his staff were summoned.

J'os-fc I'll Martin exacted his pound  of Cesh on Friday, upon the second  leading of the redistribution  bill,  and had the satisfaction of defeating his former colleagues.    It A\'as  not unexpected ; nor can it be regarded as   altogether   unwelcome.  The condition Avhich existed at the  capital for seA'eral weeks has been  most unsatisfactory.    The govern-  ment has been alternately at the  mercy of one member of the house  after another.    The result will be  that all the politicians Avill be again  put into the scales and AAreighed up.  In this process the Semlin administration should haA'e little to fear.  Its policy has been distinctive from  that of any former government in  the history of the province. Tiie men  who composed it took the proviii-  cial administration out of the rut of  many years, and, as it is reasonable  to suppose that the majority of the  electors are in favor of progression,  they will doubtless receiA'e the approbation they deserve at the polls.  Aside from the redistribution measure  upon   which  the   government  failed, the issue of the campaign  ���will   no   doubt be the eight-hour  laAV.    It has been asserted that the  wage-earners do not Avant an eight-  hour day.    The approaching contest AA'ill give them a chance to say  "whether they do or uot.    Even to  this extent a contest should not be  unAvelcome, as it will give a quietus  to "a few political mine managers  who presume to do the thinking for  the men whom they employ.  During the week a number of  representatives of eastern Canadian  Avliolesale houses   were  in Nelson,  They   all emphatically condemned  the attempt that is being made in  Toronto to destroy the credit of  the lousiness men in the mining districts of this province.    They are  all also equally emphatic in declaring that the mining sections of this  province have been most profitable  to the AA'holesale houses of Toronto  and Montreal, more profitable than  any other part   of the Dominion.  They could not see Avhat bearing a  strike at a mining tOAvnin Colorado,  Wliich occurred some years ago, has  on    the    situation    liere,   where  there has been no general suspension  of mining  operations  in any  locality from any cause Avhateyer.  ..The more this question  is   looked  into,   the more clear it is that tiie  action of tho Toronto   wholesalers  ���is the " result "of ~ tlTe~ Underhand"  methods of the one or tAvo mining  .    syndicates that make their headquarters in that city.   One of these  syndicates has had to partly  sus-  ���pend work at its mines iu Eosslaud  because   of    defective  machinery  and   mismanagement.     The  ofclier  suspended Avork at its mines in the  Boundary district in the hope that  the  other mines   iu   that district  Avould do likewise so as to discredit  the eight-hour law; but no other  mines folloAved  the lead, hence the  fine A\'ork in Toronto.   Tho business  men  in  Rossland to the number of  sixty have already succumbed to  the   pressure  brought  to bear on  them by these eastern Avholesalers,  Avliich goes to show that the business  men    of Rossland Avho have  succumbed are not deserving of the  patronage of a single man in that  city who Avorks for wages.    Jt is  safe to say  that the business men  of no other in Canada Avould be so  abject.1   A sifARKiio/.oiiit of the Bank of  British  Columbia,  at the   general  annual meeting of the bank, Avanfced  to knoAV why the bank Avas unable  to pay 10 per cent dividends as in  former years.    Ten years ago there  Avere but   three   chartered   banks  doing   business   in   the   province,  namely, the Bank of British Columbia, with branches at Victoria,  Vancouver, Nanaimo, New   West".:  minster and  Kamloops; the Bank  of   British   North   America,   Avith  branches at Victoria and Vancou-  A'er, and   the   Bank  of   Montreal,  Avith branches at Vancouver and  New Westminster, or nine branches  in all.    Now the following named  chartered banks are doing business  in the province  through forty-odd  branches: Bank of British Columbia, Bank of British North America,   Bank   of   Montreal,   Imperial  Bank, Bank of Commerce,  Bank of  Toronto, Merchants  Bank of Halifax, Molson's Bank and  the Bank  of Hamilton.    Ten years ago  the  rate of discount ranged from 8 to 12  per cent, and interest charges were  the same.   Noav the rates are as  Ioav as 5, and seldom  exceed 8 per  cent.    The banking business iu this  province is overdone,  and as a result the  shareholders in the   one  bank Avhose business is almost exclusively   in   the   province   (there  being but   two   outside branches,  one at San Francisco and the other  at Portland) are accordingly in the  receipt   of   small diA-ideuds.     The  business of some of the other banks  may not be profitable, but as the  bulk   of   their   business is in the  older established towns and cities  of Eastern  Canada, the  effect  on  tlieir total business is not so noticeable.     But   British  Columbia has  only started to grow, and its continued growth can but bring larger  dividends to the shareholders of its  pioneer chartered bank.  Of tub 438 men reported at work  in the mines in the neighborhood of  the town of Ymir, 145 are employed  at theTmir mine and mill, the only  one of the twenty-two properties at  which men are employed that refused to recognize the miners' right  to organize for self-protection, and  the only property that refused to  pay ��the standard scale of Avages  and that refused to even pay the  compromise scale of Avages recently  agreed on. This goes to show that  the tail sometimes tries to Avag the  dog.    Tub statement issued by ex-con-  nals that Macrum's statement is not  in accordance with fact; that in  short it avus framed~iis a campaign  document for the Democratic party.  This probably explains why so  little notice was taken of the statement at Washington and in London, and leaves the . ex-consul in  utter nakedness as an arrant  coAvard. Noav that the story is all  out it looks as if Macrum made a  mistake in returning to the United  States. He Avill carry the brand of  coAA'ardice to his grave.  0__*0* ' *_* -0* * 0Jf--00*m 0^ '00** 0* '00?* 0__ -0* - 0^ '00*' *��''0^*0*r* * ^____. **gk. ^_^ * ^*^. *^a^ ��� _!ll^* __^ * ^^* ^^ * ^^* ^!^ * _B^* ^"^ * ____V ^^ * ^^ ��^_  f_f.'m<Z ���^���k'* *���* *^k. *>K"*^bk ���>^*^k.*'^k, *W. ��� ^. ���5P>*. ��^__-��^_f"��K�� wT* .

BANK OF BRITISH COLUMBIA
Statement of Condition.
At the last general meeting of
the  shareholders  of the -Bank of
British Columbia, in  Loudon, England, Sir Robert Gillespie, chairman,
said:     "Gentlemen, the report and
statement of accounts made up for
the half-year ending 31st of December,  1899, have been in your hands
for the last few days, and, I have
no doubt, have received your attentive perusal, and I trust they prove
satisfactory  to  you,    showing    as
they do  an improvement on those
of the  two    preceding half-years.
The   successful   progress of trade
and  other  interests in British Columbia have proved important during the year  1809,  and while the
ibauk has benefited by it, the result
.hasjiardly been so marked' as   Ave
had hoped for, but I am pleased to
be able to state at the same time,
that  in  the face  of keen competition    we  hold  our own, notwithstanding the persuasive powers of
some of our competitors.    I would
also remind you that we have-now
to    compete     with    nine    banks, •
whereas for some years after our
establishment    in   the   colony  we
were  the  only bunk, with the exception   of   the   Bank   of   British
North  America,   L  believe,  in  the
province of British  Columbia.      I
have  already referred generally to
i>ho__successful  progress making in
British Coliimbia, and in corrobora-
- tiou    of   that   fact   I venture'to
trouble you with a few interesting
figuies.     The expoits, the produce
of and* from  British  Columbia,  including the mine?, fisheries, lumber,
agricultural products,  &c,  in   tho
year 1872 gave a total   value $1,
858,000, while last year, ending in
Juno, they represented a value of
$14,7 IS,OO0, of which amount $10,-
407,t)0O    were  derived   from    the
mines.      In     reviewing   the vast
natural resources of British [Columbia and their initial  stage  of   development, one cannot fail to be
favorably impressed with the xjos-
.Vibilities of the future.   These resources   are   gradually    becoming
better 'known, and capital for their
de\elopment   is   coming    in more
freely, while the trade is extending
to many parts of the woild, eo that
we  may fairly  expect    increasing
banking facilities will be  requited,
and    I   trust   that   the   Bank   of
British Columbia  may   participate
fully in. this im|n"oving condition of
"things7"to FecuHTwhieh no~ef_.oT't~on
the pait of your directors  shall be
wanting."
A shareholder asked how it avus
that the banking business on the
Pacific Coast was so unprofitable.
The chairman had told him that
there were nine other banks competing with the Bank of British
Columbia, but with the constant increase of business there surely
ought to be ample room for quite
that number of banks in addition
to their own. In the city of London
there were a great many banks,
and they managed to pay dn idends
langing fiom 18 per cent downwards, Avhemis this bank only
seemed capable of paying a dividend
equally to about 1 per cent on its
paid-up capital and reserve. There
surely must be something intrinsically rotten in a system of banking business Avhich did not produce
a better than that. He did not
refer merely to this bank, but also
to other London banks Avhich did
business on the Coast. lie felt
there ought to be some mutual
understanding by wliich the banks
engaged in business, there did not
cut each other's throats and render
tlieir business so exceedingly unprofitable.
The chairman, in reply, said that
since the establishment of the banks
to which he had referied tho competition had been extremely keen.
The rates of interest, which formerly
i anged from 6 to 8 per cent, now
ranged from 4 to 0 per cent, winch
was very strong proof of the difficulty of making good returns. Until
the last three years the bank did
pay handsome dividends, and it was
only owing to the calamity which
Is now prepared to issue Drafts and
Letters of Credit on Skaguay, U. S.,
Atlin, B. C, and Dawson City, _5T. W. T.
then came upon them in the Avay of
bad debts that the dividend was
reduced. They were now doing
tlieir best to recoup their loss, and
to got clear of all those responsibilities. The closest attention of
the directors AA'as given to the interests of the bank, and they were
endeavoring to control, to the best
of thoir ability aud power, the
Avorking of tho bank through its
different branches. He hoped yet
to live to see the bank return to its
former dividends.

THE   BOER   ARTILLERY."
The correspondent of a news
agency AVi-ibing from Durban,
speaks with apparent knowledge of
the Boer armament, and the way it
was obtained as follows .
"The expenditure of the Transvaal government for artillery during the past four years is shown
with startling bluntness in a document that has been brought here
from Pretoria and was issued some
time before the opening of the war
for" the private information of the
members of the Volksraad.
"In 1891 the Boers gave their first
order for a quantity of heavy guns,
aud then they expended _£10G,000
with Krnpp of Germany, and about
£100,000 wich an Austrian firm for
small arms. " The~Ki"iipp~g"uns were"
delivered in 1S05, and included two
of what was then the largest
pattern for a gun in the world.
These guns are forty-eight feet in
length, weigh 120 tons, throw a
shell \\ oighiug 2300 pounds and require 00. pounds of powder for each
discharge. One of these enormous
wcapoiib has beeu dragged to the
hill_. overlooking Ladysmith, the
labor necessary to accomplish this
feat having been prodigious. The
other is on the fortifications defending Pretoria, where it awaits
the approach of tho British in their
coming attack on the capital. Both
are amply provided with ammitnit-,
ion, which in addition to the great
steel and iron shells, consist of
shrapnel, holding .'-000 balls weighing three and one-half ounces each.
Its bore is 16.88 inches, and all these
attributes have enabled this gun to
make Ladysmith a most uncomfortable spot during the past several
weeks.
"In 1895 another .8100,000 was expended with Krnpp, and a number
of field guns of long range were obtained, as were also several mountain and bush guns, these being especially adapted to the hilly country aud the hot climate of the
Transvaal.
"But it was in 1896 that the
Boers contracted for the guns that
have thus far in the war done them
the most effective service. It was
at this time tiiat they made their
first purchase of six cannon manufactured at Greusot, and so satisfied
were the Boer oliicers with them
that eighteen have been added to
the Transvaal arnamont since that
date.   One of the many effective
features of this gun is the clever
arrangement of springs or brakes
that lessens the recoil materially,
and brings the gun back to its
former position within two seconds
after being discharged. This gives
greater velocity to the. projectile
and increases the range. The velocity is oyer 1800 feet per second at
the muzzle, and' the carrying distance is a trifle under five miles,
this remarkable result being,obtained from a charge of less than two
pounds of'powder, and from a gun
weighing, only 3400 pounds. Eight
shots, may be fired each minute
without heating the metal and
every gun goes into action provided
with 144 rounds of ammunition.
There is a sufficient quantity- of
ammunition for these' particular
guns .to..keep' them in active service -
for the.next two years.
"During 1807-98 and aportion of
1899, the Boers continued to
.strengthen.-their,, artillery;arm and
also to fortify many of the hills
along the frontier. In this period
they bought forty-eight rapidr fire
Schneider-Capet fourteen-and-one-
half-pounders, that throw shrapnel
containing 234 bullets.
"Five batteries of eight rapid-fire;
Maxims are each being used against
Mafeking and Ladysmith. The
Boers also proA'ided themselves
with four batteries of twelve-pound
quick-firing Vickers-Maxim guns
with a range of 12,000 yards. Two
of these are said to be mounted on
the hills at either side of a narrow
pass that leads from Natal into the
Transvaal, another is overlooking
Ladysmith and the fourth protects
Pretoria.
••In all the Boers have between
220 and 230 heavy guns and field
pieces, every individual gun being
of the latest design 'and with the
latest improvements,, and the entiie
number supeiior in nearly every
way to those possessed by tho
British." ^	
A   TOAST   TO   BANKERS.
The Bankers' Association of New
York city, a great mutual admiration society, entertained themselves
with a grand banquet at the Waldorf-Astoria the other evening.
Most of the speeches' lauded the
greatness and sanctity of Maunnom
and the gold standard. One speech,
however, broke the monotony of
the occasion. A newspaper man
named Simeon Ford spoke aud
furnished a good deal of amusement
at the expense of his hosts._ "As L"
"sivt__-_ere_fcIIi-—ieven_hg","~_i_ began,
"listening to the strains of that fine
old banker's anthem entitled When
You Ain't Got No Money, Why,
You Needn't Come Around, I was
thinking what a grand idea it was
for you magnates to get together
and settle among yourselves what
shall be done, and who shall be
done ancl how you will do them. 1
have observed," continued Mr.
Ford, "that one's reception at a
bank varies somewhat with the
condition of the money market.
Go in when money is easy and tho
president falls on your neck, calls
you by your first name, and cheerfully loans you large sums of money
on your Baloon Common "and your
Smoke Preferred, and you go on
your way rejoicing. The next diiy,
news having arrived that a Gordon
Highlander has strained a tendon
in his leg while sprinting away
from a Dutchman near Ladysmith,
or an Irish lady chef has .sent home
two pounds sterling to her family,
money goes up to 180 per cent a
minute, and you get a note requesting you to remove your Baloon
Common and your Smoke Preferred
and substitute government bonds
therefor. And still you wonder at
crime. Bankers are too prone to
judge a man by iiis appearance, so
that the very men that need the
money most have the hardest woik
to get it. They are apt, especially
at the City Bank, to discriminate
against the feller who looks like
Rocky, in favor of the Roekyfeller.
Clothes do not make the man! If
they did Hetty Green wouldn't be
where she is. and Russell Sage would
bo in the Old Ladies' Home. If
Uncle liusselj had to travel on his
shape he never would see much of
the world. Yet beneath that
ragged coat there beats a heart
which as a beater can't be beat—a
heart as true (so the Standard Gas
people say) as truo as steal. But,
after all, banks and trust companies
do.a lot of good in a quiet way, especially to their directors in a quiet
way. It would sometimes be mortifying for these directors to have to
attempt to borrow money on certain securities, in institutions'with-
which they were not connected, because, instead of getting the money,
they might get six mouths."
What Killed Sir John.
St. John Telegram.
In his speech the other day sir
Charles Tupper declared,  with his
tremole stop pulled out, that sir
John Macdonald had worn himself
to death in resisting the disloyalty
of Liberals.    This was not the first
time that the leader of the opposition had made the statement; but
reiteration does not 'make it any
the less au empty fable.   Grit disloyalty never hurt sir John.    What
killed sir John, if political matters
had anything to do with his. death,
was.the rottenness of, his. own party.    He  died  in the early part of
the session in 1S91. just when the
exposures  that   drove  sir    Hector
Langevin, his light hand, into the
obscurity   of     private   life,    and
Thomas McGreevy to piisou, were
taking shape.   Sir John knew what
was coming.   The" f.ieL had been
laid before him.    Ho saw the cloud
of doom gathering over the Conservative pai'ty, and wa, enduring the
shame that came upon all the people of Canada as the corruption of
his colleagues was later exposed to
the world.   The dread and humiliation was too much for the veteran
leader and lie gave v_ iiy under tho
strain.    Sir Charles' story,might be
accepted in some foreign land : but
not here iu Canada where tho facts
are still fresh in the miblic mind.
The London newspapers are at
present devoting much attention to
the facts which prove the existence
. of a Boer conspiracy against British power in South Africa, long before the Jameson raid.   The Chronicle publishesan in terview Avith Canon
Farmer, jvho lived for five years in
Pretoria, and who is now in England.   He declares that arming* was
going on among the Transvaalers
long before   Jameson   crossed the
border, and that president Kruger
welcomed the raid as an excuse tor
go on more openly with the preparations for Avar.    For more than a
year before the raid,' says Canon
Farmer, arms and ammunition were
being poured iuto Pretoria.   Directly afterwards the forts around Pretoria were started, and within two
years six were erected. . In 1898 a
neAV fort Avas built at Bloemfontein,
showing that the Free State was
also preparing   for   war.     Canon
Farmer says that he spoke to Mr.
Conyngham Greene about the guns
and arms which were arriving continually, and AA'as giAren to understand    that   "the   government   at
home were aAArare of the condition
of things."   That the Boer strength
and resourcefulness were  no   less
underestimated   in   London   than
they were   overestimated by the
Boers, themselves, is evident from
one of .the last remarks made by
general Jou.bert before leaving for.
the   front,  as   related   by  Canon
Farmer:    "Chamberlain will be.sur-
prised  at this,  as he  thought we
Avere merely bluffing."    On the eve
of Canon Farmer's departure from
Pretoria, chief justice Gregorovsky,
said to him:    "Is it really necessary
for you to go, as the war will be.
over in a fortnight?   Weshall /first
take Kimberley and Mafeking, and
give the English such abeating in
Natal that they will sue for peace."
This   was   the   Boer   programme,
wliich has not been carried out, and
..never.'will be.   In - regnrd to  the
numerical strength -of the  Boers,
Canon   Farmer states   that Boer
officials, with whom he was friend-,
ly. told him that they would put
between"90,000 and 120,000 men iu
the  field, ' and  that    they   AA'ould
"completely   smash   the   Biitish."
Admitting the difficulty of judging,
Canon Farmer thinks that the estimates of tho numbers of foreigners
Avith the Boers are excessive.

Miner's Lamp Using Acetylene.
K.iK.nc.ting and aiming Jouin.il,
Some trials' lmve lately been
made in the Ncn-Diepcnbrock IIP.
mine owned by the Selbeclc Mining
Company, of a miner's lamp fed
with acetylene, designed by the
Velo Company of Dresden-Lobkau,
Germany; and the results were
satisfactory, although a few modifications in the direction of greater
strength are recommended. The
lamp is described in a note by Mi.
Kuhn in the Echo des Mines of
Pdi is.
This lamp, an open one, can be
.i=ed conveniently and without
danger in the roads and working
places ; and its illuminating power
is ten times greater than that of an
ordinary lamp, while it better
withstands damp and air __uiTent£.
The illuminating power of an acetylene lamp is not diminished in bad
air; but the Ilame of an oil lamp on
the contrary becomes reduced ap-
pieciably in a foul ciu'ienl. Moreover, while water falling from the
roof eaaily extinguishes" the-flanfe"
of an acetylene lamp, it can be
relighted more icadily than can
an oil lamp. The dear light given
by the acetylene (lame facilitates
inspection of the a\oikings by tlio
foreman; and an acetylene lamp
placed 'i m. from the point wheie
men are working gives M.fiicient
light for them to sec exactly what
they aie about, including the management of rock drill... Tho cleaning of this lamp i*. a very hiinple
matter; but it should be carefully
overhauled before use, because a
crack or a joint not perfectly tight
might bring about an accident.

The patient Clayton is recovering rapidly, but lias not been  taken out of the dark room. Dr.  Me Lennan is making a close study  of the case, which lie pronounces as  of average severity, rather inclining to mild.  The Nelson Gas and Coke company propose to place on exhibition  iu tlieir Raker street oflice a two  horse power gas motor. Tho apparatus will bo in running order, and  will be utilized to demonstrate to  possible users of power, the advantages of the gas engine over other  methods of generating power.  The Nelson Saw k Planing Mills  company is getting out tlio timbers  for the frame of a new C. 1*. R. tug,  which the company figures on  launching 30 days hence. cShe will  be 00 feet in length and equipped  with the engines from the old  Kaslo. This tug is entirely distinct  from.the boat in which the Palsons  of Toronto are building engines.  F. A. Tamblyn left on Saturday  night for RIythe, Ontario, having  been summoned to the bedside of  his mother who is critically ill.  The quartette of prisoners for  the penitentary from Nelson have  been delivered to the authorities of  New Westminister. Provincial  constable Forrester returned home  at once. C. IX Jarvis is spending  the balance of fourteen days' |sick  leave at Victoria, aud special oflieer  Drinkwater remained in Vancouver.  D. Macgregor, pound keeper, is  on the trail of citizens, who have  neglected to pay tlieir dog taxes.1  The period of grace ha,s- expired  and the authorities 'propose prosecuting those who have neglected  sundry warnings. Macgregor will  get out witJi the dogcatehers net.  The tug Angcrona is now plying  out of Nelson having been brought  down here a day or two ago. She  will be sailed by captain Campbell  and will be utilised for handling  freight to the railroad camps along  the line of the Balfour extension.  The mines under contract to ship  to the JIall Mines smelter are holding theii shipments for tho present.  ���The smeller people have advised  them that within a few days they  anticipate receiving a cablegram  which will determine whether or  not operations are to bo resumed.  In the meantime they have requested their shippers to hold the  consignments ready for forwarding.  E. J. Fisher* of Winnipeg has  arrived in the city to take charge of  the carpet department in the Hudson 's_Ri.y__Company_s_ stores.__ This,  department is located on the second  flat, and a portion of the stock has  already been i eecived, while further  consignments are- en route.  The Boundary team has formally  dropped out of the Kootenay  hockey league, after having defaulted all they games thoy were  scheduled to play in Nelson. Tlio  local men will see the league through  tho season if there is any ice.  The work of completing the heating .system at tho general iiospital  has not progressed as nipidly as was  anticipated. Tho new wing will  therefor*, not be occupied for some  time. Tho present directorate is  not taking" action regarding the  establishment of a training school  for mir_-cs preferring to leave the  matter to tho new directors who  take hold about the middle of  March.  Daniel Smith of tho Ontario  Powder Company arrived in Nelson  Saturday night fiom Kingston,  Ontario, with five men who are to  take executive positions in tho new  works at Six-mile point. The paity  included H, A. MacPherson, who is  to be the manager of the city office ;  A. J. Gibbon, superintendent at the  ���works; A. Laiuey, who will be  nitrator; W. A. Way, packer, and  Thomas Way, shellmaker. Several  carloads of plant are on the way  from tho east and may arrive in a  day or two. The construction of  an engine house and chemical building is to be commenced today.  The chorus in the Pinafore will  practice this evening in the lecture  room of St. Saviour's church at 8  o'clock p.m.  The patriotic concert given at  the opera house on Saturday evening by the Rossland Dandy Coons  was a great success, and nearly $500  was realized which will go to swell  Nelson'scontribution to the Mansion  House fund. The performance, was  clean and clever, the jokes were  funnier than "usual, and Frank  Oliver's and Arthur Salvini's singing were especially meritorious.  James V. AVelch has secured a  portion of tho work on tho Balfour  extension. He was identified with  Mr. Stewart in the construction of  tho Boundary spur lines and has an  extensive plant at Trail, the first  installment of which is expecteel  here today. Mr. Welch wont over  the new line yesterday.  The .circulation of tho daily  edition of Tins Ti.ii.UNi. has reached  1000, which is almost double that of  its contemporary.  Louis Blue's sawmill at Rossland  burned down last night. The mill  is situated about two miles out of  town past the Centre Star mine.  The mill is .above the water tank  so the fiie department was unable  to get the hose in play. A bucket  brigade was formed but at midnight the flames were still raging,  and it is understood that the mill  is a total loss.  J. A. Cameron, of the C. P. R.  telegraph office leaves tonight foi*  Winnipeg where he will take a key  in the company's office there. He  will be accompanied by W. T. Williamson who has beeu transferred  from Grand Forks to AVinnipeg.  Mr. Cameron's successor is D. O'Con-  nel, late of AVinnipeg, who enters  the local office today,  THE EIGHT HOUR IAW SUITS  Jay~ P. Graves.  Jay P. Graves, .manager of the  Old Ironsides and Knob Hill mines,  in Phoenix cailip. is in Montreal  and was there interviewed by a'  newspaper reporter as to the probable action* of his company in re-  regard . to the enforcement of the  eight-hour law, says tho Grand  Forks Gazzette. -    ..  It had been rumored in Montreal  and eastern Canada, as it was here,  that the big properties of the company would be closed down in company with those of the syndicate  of mine owners who havo determined on the repeal of tho obnoxious law.  Mr, Graves' answer to the question of whether or not those properties will close down is unequivocal aud admits of no miseoustiuc-  tiou. He stated positively that the  mines of his company would be operated in strict accordance with  the law, and that there Intel been  no intention of .shutting down.   Regarding this "matter he said:  "AVe discussed that question last  April, and concluded to make the  best of the act. AVe continued operations on these lines, and we  havo adapted our work to conform  with the law in question, AVe expect te> continue our operations and  have never given tho question any  further consideration. We announced at the time our decision to  the other mine owners, and wo also  advised them to do likewise."

Sunday. February  25.���A reconnaissance yesterday in  force under general Gatacre with  eight guns found the Boers occupying a ridge thiee miles beyond  Molteno in Stormberg division.  Montmorency scouts charged tho  Boers who crept around the scouts  flank, pouring in a deadly fire. The  scouts were linally compelled to retire, having lost four killed, seven  wounded and 14 missing. Captain  Montmorency and lieutenant-colonel J. II. Iloskiu were among the  killed.
