II  ���At ti meeting of  tonight tlio fol-  [J 11  ��  jj VicTuuiA, March 7.���[Special to The Tribune. 1-  li tlic executive oi' the Provincial Liberal Association  H  ti lowing resolutions were adopted unanimously : E  ij Resolved that this executive is emphatically of the  opinion that jj  I! to conduct the coining provincial elections  upon  party lines  would E  |j be most injurious to the best interests of the province. jj  jj Resolved, that iu answer to the  request of the Rossland Liberal _  Association to call a provincial Liberal convention, the president be R  authorized to Avire that in view of the decision of the executive jj  against conducting the coming provincial election on party lines, and jj  having regard to the peculiar eirucmslances attending the existing jj  condition of affairs, it is not expedient to call a provincial convention ��  I] of the Liberal party at the present time. a  Owing to the detention of the Vancouver steamer and other ��  ij causes, a number of the members of the executive were unable to be jj  jj present, but those who were at the meeting, together with those who jj  li had expressed their views by letter and telegram, constituted a ma- M  a jority of the whole executive. jj  m a  _ixxxx_.xxiiixxxixxxixixiiixixrizxixxxxxxxiirxn___:rx:nxxiixixixixxxxxxzxxixiixxixxxixix_ixxxxxixxxxxxxij:x_ tzxzzti  fan try and wounded men went by  rail. When the last had leftElauds-  laagte a workmen's train followed,  carefully blowing up eyery bridge  and culvert between Ladysmith ancl  Glencoe, and, when this had been  done, setting firo to the collieries.  .Thus the British with Natal's  southernmost collieries in their  hands were unable to draw a supply therefrom. Under cover of  night and with collieries sending  flames to heaven, the bullock  wagons wound over the hills making roads where none before existed and the four months' siege of  Ladysmith was raised. It is impossible to give the burgher casualties owing to the disorganization of  the ambulance and circumstances  of the retreat.  GAS FOR NELSON AND HOW  for  It is Manufactured.  Gas will be used for lighting  the fit st time in Nelson tod-iy unless somethingalLogether unforeseen  arises to prevent the arrangements  made by the Nelson Coke <fc Gas  Company being carried into effect.  The event may be said to mark the  passing of another milestone in the  progress of the queen city of the  Kootenays, and will be watched  with keen interest by every citi-  c  zen.  The art of manufacturing gas is  a sealed book to perhaps. 9S per  cent of the citizens, aud iu view of  this fact Tin-: Titiiiuxb has secured  a brief resume of the process from  L. L. Merrifield of Toronto, chief  i,-'\Jiginei.v of .the Economical Gas  Construction Company. Mr. Mciri-  tfield says:  ''Five buildings are included iu  (the gas works, and they are described respectively as the retort  [honse, scrubbing and condensing  iroom, purifying house, meter aud  (governor house and the gas holder.  ���The process by which coal from the  ICi-ow's Neat mines enters the first  |jf these buildings? and emerges in  Jtlie form of coke, and then gas, is  Idecidcdly interesting,  A car of coal is shunted into the  fcompany's coal shed by a 0. P. IL  li witch engine and from there the  |_jas company's employee* carry tho  black diamonds in trucks to the retort house. This building is equipped with twelve retorts, each of  Ivhich will handle a ton of coal in  IM hours! Tho retort, which re-  rambles a baker's oven more than  imything else, is heated from a fur-  Jiacc to temperature of 1S00 degrees  mTarenheit. and is then charged with  jjoal, about 350 pounds being suffi-  hiont for a single _charge. For four  |rours"this_edal is maintained at the  jfegree of heat specified above, the  hyen ..being constructed in such a  jiiauner that no air can  reach the  I'litoriot'  while   the   coal   is   being  f.akpd.   The result of this process  |-i gas and coke.   The latter is in  "}>��? form  in   which   it   is   placed,  fo��   the  maiket,   and requires no  Icurther treatment.   Tho gas, how-  .vcr/as it leaves the retorts, con-  ���jdiifi  tar and animoniaeil vapors  md passes info a hydraulic main  .vhoro a portion of the tar and am-  iiouincal g��M is extracted,  "The gas is brought from  the re-  ort bouse to tho second   building  ��y nn exhauster, or rotary pump.  rom this pump it is forced through  Jjo     condensers,   ,tar    extractor,  ivafajjcr and scrubber.   The conden-  er Is oin ployed to reduce the tem-  erature of tho gas to 00 degrees  Fahrenheit, which changes'the tar  row a vapor to a liquid.    The next  H'ocess is, of course, the extractor,  u which all the tar is eliminated  uid  goes to form  a valuable by-  5,-ofluet.   The compound now con-  kitits of #as auc* ammonia  vapors,  nd   la  passed  through  a  washer  .vhich extwicts a portion of the am-  jionia by biinghig   it in   contact  ith  water.     Whatever ammonia  em.iins in removed in two  sciub-  )crs and  forms another valuable  by-product.  ���"The next building is the purify-  ug house, which takes its name  rom the fact that it contains two  unifiers.  from  pure.  ,v  Aca in tJl��  *>ii��P<?  These extract all impuri-  bhape of sulphuretted  livdrogcn and carbonic acid.  1'iiis is done by charging the  )Ariflers with hydrate of  ime and oxide of   iron through  which the gas passes, and  which it emerges absolutely  In this connection it may be remarked, that for some time after  the purifying compound is removed  from the tanks it gives off a pungent odor which has a marked remedial effect on bronchial troubles,  whooping cough in particular.  "The, pure gas passes to the  meter house, where it is measured  in a station meter and piped to the  gas holder. The latter has a capacity of 00,000 cubic feet, and the  holder floats in a steel tank containing about 550,000 gallons of  water. The pressure of the holder  forces the gas into the distributing  main leading from the works, from  where it is piped to all points in  tho city.  "The capacity of the works is 120,-  000 cubic feet per diem, and as this  is considerably, iu excess of the de-  maud the pressure on the mains is  adjusted by a governor."  The, gentlemen who have been  connected with the construction- of  the works are: L. L. Merrifield, D.  Morris, construction -engineei, and  George MeFarland, foreman.  The officials of tlio Nelson Coke &  Gas Works are: , Fred Burnett,  manager, and William Moss superintendent. The regular employees  include four gas makers and two  laborers.  CANADIANS BARRED OUT OF  Cape Nome Trade.  Washington, March. 7,���The attention of the treasury department  has been called to the advertisements of Canadian steamship lines  soliciting freight to be shipped during the coming season from Seattle  to Cape Nome, Alaska.  This was done upon the erroneous  assumption that Cape Nome would  be-made a-sub-port of" eutry~of tH"e  United States.  The route of these shipments, it  was intended, should be from Seattle to Vancouver by rail, a distance  of fifty or sixty miles, thence to  Cape Nome by steamer, thus evading, according to the officials, our  laws which prohibit foreign vessels  from carrying goods from one port;  in the United States to another.  The department, iu view of this  fact, has decided for the present at  least, not to make Cape Nome a  Subport of entry, leaving St.  Michael the" nearest port to tiie  new goklfields. The effect of this  action will be to preserve the trade  with Cape Nome to American  vessels.    _  '   Buller Advancing.  London, March 7.���-For lack of all  news from field marshal Roberts  public attention turns to Natal. It  is reported that general Buller has  pushed forward a force along the  Harrismith railroad line. It appears that the Boers intend to take  up a strong position in theBiggars-  burg range and contest the Glencoe  passes, although it hardly seems  likely that general Buller will attempt to force these for the present. But his plans are kept almost  as secret as those of lord Roberts.  THE NEWCJ^R. DEPOT  Will be Built Forthwith.  The decision regarding the location and cost of Nelson's new C. P.  R.  depot will be known  today, a  party of C. P. R. officials having arrived here last night .for the purpose of going into the matter finally. Others will ariive on the regular Rossland train   this   morning  and the subject, wliich is fraught  with considerable interest 'to citizens, is to be finally disposed of.  Thomas Tait, manager of lines east  of Winnipeg, his  secretary, W. F.  Culleu, and  G. S. Ceutler,  superintendent of the C. P. R. car service,  remained in-Mr. Tait's car  "Earns-  clift'e" at Robson and will arrive in  Nelson this   morning.   The   party  which came in last night included  the following:  William Whyte, superintendent of lines west of Winnipeg;  D.  F-.   Coyle,  secretary; R.  Marpole, superintendent Pacific division; A. F. Armistcad, secretary;  J.   Cambie,   resident   engineer   at  Vancouver; F. P.  Gutelius,  recently appointed  engineer of lines  in  the Kootenays; T. E. Hobbs, Revel-  Stoke^ master mechanic, and E. J.  Coylq'of Vancouver, assistant general jjassengcr agent.  Mr. Whyte remarked to a Titi-  iiune representative: "Our mission  in Nelson is to determine as to the  location of the new depot,- which is  to be built at once. The proposed  arrangement of the station yard is  also to be under consideration and  we will probably arrive at a decision on these points tomorrow. It  is impossible for me to state Avhat  amount will be expended in station  buildings, as this depends to a cer  tain extent  select,  on   tho   locations we  Uow the Siege Was Raised.  Borcit Ca.w, BiOGAttsyERG, Saturday. March 8.���In tho retreat from  Ladysmith tho Boers were independent of the railway, as is shown  by the fact that none of 2000 wagons went by rail. All travelled by  road, together witli tiie field batteries.   Only the heaver guns, tho iu-  Conservatives Consult.  A   delegation   of    Conservative  politicians from Rossland have beeu  in Nelson for two days holding consultations with Conservative politicians   of Nelson.     The Rossland  men are John McKane, A lexandGr  Dick  and  C. E. Race.     They first  met   W.   A.    Macdonald,    Prank  -Fletcher,-T��� G.���Proctei,-and_Fre~d  Irvine at the Phair hotel on Tuesday night, and as the result of that  conference, a meeting of the executive of the Conservative, Association   of' Nelson   was   held in the  board   of   trade    room   yesterday  afternoon.   The result of these conferences and meetings is:    A convention of Conservatives of all the  ridings of Kootenay is .to bo held  at Nelson at an early date.   If the  convention is a representative one,  the decision arrived at, is to bind  the party.   The Rossland men are  for making the fight on party lines.  Revelstoke Conservatives have already nominated Charles Wilson,  Q. C, of Vancouver, tho leader of  the party   line   Conservatives, as  their candidate.   It is known  that  the "machine" Conservatives of the  Slocan are all in favor of a party-  line fight.   East Kootenay is Liberal, anal a Conservative has little  show of election there if a party  fight is   made.     Nelson   riding is  against a party-line   contest, but  "machine men" liko W. A. Macdonald and PI. R. Cameron are working  hard to have the fight made on  party lines.   They are both astute  politicians and they may be able to  whip the rank and file into line.  HOW ROBERTS SUCCEEDED  In Outflanking the Eoers.  London, March 7.���Lord Roberts  telegraphs from Osfontein:  "Advanced March 7th, enemy in  full retreat, followed by our troops.  Casualties few."  London, March 7.���The text of  lord Roberts' dispatch it, as follows:  "Osfontein, March 7���4.20 p. m.  ���Our operations today promise to  be a great success. The enemy  occupied a position 11 miles south  of the Modder river. I placed general Colville's division ou the north  bank and generals Kel'y-Keuny and  Tucker's division with the cavalry  on the south bank.  "The cavalry division succeeded  in beating the enemy's flank, opening the road for the sixth division,  which is advancing without having  been obliged to fire a shot up to the  present time. The enemy are in  full retreat toward the north and  and east.  "They are being closely followed  by the cavalry, horse artillery and  mounted infantry, while Tucker's  seventh division, Colville's ninth  division and the Guards brigade  under Pole-Carew are making their  way across, the liver at Poplar's  drift, where I propose to place my  headquarters this evening.  ���"Our casualties will, I trust, be  few, as the enemy were quite unprepared for being attacked on the  flank and having their' communications with Bloemfontein threatened."

Bjnghampton, New York, March  7.���A brush and felting company  of Lestershire today shipped to  Southampton, England, a large con-  signmentof saddle cloths and panels  to be used by the British army in  South Africa. Two additional orders have been received, one for  2000 panels for saddle trappings,  and another i'or 5000 saddles for  -artillery regiments.  A big mud slide took place about  noon yesteiday at Seven Devils on  the Nelson & Fort Sheppard road  just beyond Northport. The track*  was covered seven feet deep with  mud for a quarter of a mile. Tho  evening train from Spokane was  delayed 12 hours by the slide.  It will bo of interest to local  military enthusiasts to learn that a  message was received in the city  yesterday from major Benson, district officer commanding at Victoria, which read, "Men not wanted  for South Africa, only provisional  officers for garrison at Halifax."  Tins is not taken as_ meaning that-  mon may not be^ taken from here  for the proposed gari i%on at Halifax.  Mrs. A. E. Hodgius gave birth to  a daughter yesteiday evening.  Both mother and child are doing  well.  II. Bowden, the absconding JIall  Mines clerk, is now in prison in  Spokane. Chief of provincial  police Bullock-Webster goes down  to Spokane to see him on this morning's train.' If Bowden declines to  comeback without raising any  trouble, it is probable that he will  not be extradited, but Mr, Webber  will prosecute him in Spokane for  bringing stolen goods into the  United States. lie has, no doubt of  being able'to obtain a conviction on  this charge, the penally for which  is a heavy one.  Mining recorder Harry Wright is  looking for a shack which was  taken from a lot belonging to him,  and located at the cast end of Victoria street. The building was  there a few days ago, and tho occupant paid his rent to date, but now  the building and tenant have vanished.  W. E. Boie, who is superintending the development of the Rene  Latidi group of claims in (/'amp  Mansfield, returned to the camp  yesterday. lie stud that he expected that the Twin Lakes tunnel  would have crosscut the Joker load  on that claim by the time he got  back.

Shipments  of ore continue light, but a marked  improvement iu  thi,s direction  is  for   within- the next  few  Merchandise is going  into  the district in largely   increasing  quantities.  Two men, Shannon and Brown,  were brought before magistrate  Crease yesterday, charged with vagrancy. A gun and some other articles were stolen from the Lake-  view hotel on Tuesday, and it is  suspected that the men were mixed  up in the theft. The stolen articles  were found cached in a snowbank  near the C. P. R. depot. The men  were remanded.  Arthur Butt was arraigned before magistrate Crease yesterday  morning and remanded for three  days until it is determined  whether or not he is mentally normal. The young man came down  from Balfour on the steamer An-  gerona Tuesday, and could not be  kept away from the boat. He tells  astonishing stories, but acts in such  a manner that the authorities believe that his trouble will only be  temporary.  Joe Sturgeon, of the Sherbrooke  hotel, says that he has had his first  lawsuit, and that he will never have  another one if he can helj) it. He  says he boarded a number of work-  ingmen until his bill against them  amounted to over $400, ou an understanding with the employer of  the workii_ig:men that he would be  responsible for their board; but  when it came to a show-down the  contractor denied making any such  an agreement. Hereafter Mr. Sturgeon says that all such agreements  with him for boarding men will be  in black and white, duly witnessed.  Information was laid yesterday  before stipendiary magistrate  Crease against Fauquier aud three  others by the owner of the Brooklyn townsite for endeavoring to remove a building which they had  erected. The magistrate took the  view that the defendants thought  they were acting within _ their  right?, aud so imposed no penalty,  but dismissed "the eases.

The fighting was practically confined to the cavalry division,  which, as usual, did exceedingly well, and general French reports  that the horse artillery batteries did great execution among the  enemy.

The dissolution of the present  legislature may result in deferring  i'or some time the control of the  Nelson school by tho municipality.  Had the legislature been permitted  to complete its unfinished business  the city/would no doubt haA-e taken  over the school at the end of the  present liscal year ; but as matters  stand iioav, the tiansfer may be delayed for another six or even twelve  months.   -  When the   Semlin   government  excluded aliens from staking placer  claims    in  the   Atlin  district, the  United States government lodged a  protest  AA'ith  the Ottawa authorities.      The    Laurier    government  heeded   the   protest   and  brought  such pressure to bear upon the Semlin government that the objectionable statute was repealed.    It could  not be shown  that the  American  miners    had   any    rights   in   the  premises Avhich Avere infiinged upon ; but the mere  fact that   they  wished to take up placer ground iu  British Columbia AA-as sufficient to  cause the  Laurier  government to  take  exceptiou  to   the  legislation.  Noav the boot is on the other foot.  The United Scales goA-ernincut has  so  framed   tilings  that   Canadian  A'essels aviII not bo able to engage in  the cairying trade to Cape Nome,  AA'hich thoy had  figured on.    The  1 Canadians    have    just   the   stun a  ground ..for   complaint    that   tho  American miners had in Atlin ; but  is   there  anyone in   Canada   aaIio  imagines that, by filing a protest in  Washington, the United Stages government. aaIU amend its regulations  to suit the Canadians ?   When will  tho  government  at  OttaAva cease  throwing up both bauds every time  they* get   a  protest   from   Wtish-  ington?      When the spring rush to the  Capo Nome gold Holds sots in there  AA*ilI probably be another cry for ro-  ,__i aliation_agoiiist_tho JJnited_Si:itcs  from the merchants of Vancouver  aud    Victoiia.     They    havo   been  building high hopes on thu carrying  trade to the now gold distiict; but  these hopes havo been shattered by  the announcement from Washington that the Unite.] States will refuse to make Cape Nome .a sub-port  of entry.    The effect of this will bo  to shut out ^Canadian vessels and  preserve  tho  trade  for   American  bottoms.    It Avas a somewhat similar discrimination, u;ith  icapect to  the United States customs regulations, Avhich started the agitation  for the exclusion of aliens from the  Atlin district in this province.    Tiie  Semlin government listened to the  clamor and enacted tho legislation  ti c:->i tod;    and     inside    of   twelve  months was denounced for so doing  by   the press and people avIio had  advocated it. ��  do not make their profits out of the  men avIio own or manage themiues.  Some of the large mining companies are no more profitable to banks  here than tire some of the small  tradesmen. It is safe to say that  the account of a daily newspaper is  more profitable to a bank than the  accounts of 50 per cent of the companies operating mines in Kootenay. The banks are the balance  wheels of the engines that run the  business enterprises of the country,  and the men who manage them are  the engineers. It is A'ery rarely  that.the engineers are asleep Avhen  on duty, and it is just as rarely that  they allow their engines to get out  of order. To take sides in a political contest AA'ould be worse than being cither asleep or neglectful.  Ex-alderman Beer is doAvn at the  Coast scheming to aecuie a nomination for the legislative assembly.  The man Avho will be elected is  right here in Nelson saAving wood.  The ConserA-ativcs of Rossland  have selected their political manager. At picsent ho is penning  editorials for the afternoon paper  in that town, but he sighs for  broader empire, and he wants to'  manage the campaign in every riding in Kootenay. The last political  Avotk he cugagad in AA'as tiie setting  of a trap that caught an ex-mayor  of Rowland.  Porto Rieo Lumber Co.  (LIMITED)  Successors to ,  J. A. .CrgWAR & CO.

TWO   HEROES  Two men concentrate the world's  attention today, says Stuart  I'ren-  lte'-i   in   tho   Wave���general    loid  lloberLs and   eoinniandant  Cronje.  One is trapped in a river bed  with  eight   thousand   men,   surrounded  by a  British  army  of* four  times  that  number.     lb  was the other's  strategy  that set him   there.    At  writing the Boer Ibadcr  holds  out  against ti bombardment  of lyddite  and shrapnel, his courage and fortitude in   facing  an  implacable  foe  rousing   the    admiration    of   the  world.     Call  his  stand what you  will���murder or suicide���it is heroism of the  highest  type, however  mistaken or ill directed.    It  is  the  spirit of him who, confronted  with  the pistol of the  highwayman, re-  J'ttocs to turn out  his  pockets, pre-  'ferring.death to surrender.     Brave  but indiscreet tho average man will  tell you, but history is full of such  glorious  indiscretions, and  in  tho  I'^iglUh army they reward it  with  the Victoria cross.  1 met the other day a man who  had recently come from South  Africa, and naturally the conversation turned on Cronje. I was inclined to rate his skill higher than  that of Joubert, but my friend  would not have it so. The commandant at bay in the Modder  river is a militaiy farmer and owns  some 12,000 acres of veldt close to  Potchcfritrootn. His homo is a stone  structure one story in height, the  inevitable stoop iu front, containing half a dozen dirty looms, the  tho contents^of which might bo replaced forjplOO. Here he lives in"  patriarchal style, with his wife and  children aud native 'servants, and  julct, them with a rod^-of it on and a  THE BANK OF  BRITISH   COLUMBIA  NELSON  Is now prepared to issue Drafts and  Letters of Credit on Skaguay, U. S.,  Atlin, B. 0., and Dawson City, N. W. T.  hide sjambok. A hard, rough man  is Cronje, ruder than the average  Boor���oven more cruel and relentless, cunning and unscrupulous.  Ho led Trimsvaaliuns in tho campaign of 1S80 and was guilty of acts  contrary to the usages of civilized  warfare, lie executed several British subjects on suspicion of participation in the movement against  him, and on another occasion he  placed prisoners of war in tho forefront of besieging operations, compelling them to work in the trenches  in exposed positions, so that they  should be���-aud actually were���shot  by their friends.  Nor is this  all.    Wheu  Jameson  Surrendered, Cronje   was  conducting operations against an  isolated  British force which held out agaiust  tlio Boor.-..     Instead   of notifying  the garrison that an  armistice had  been arranged between  the forces,  he continued   the   siege  uutil  the  British weie compelled to surrender  in order to save the  lives  of  their  wounded and women  and  children  refugees.    Then  this amiable  hero  proposed to shoot all the   English  oflieers of the garrison and was persuaded to mercy on  the plea that  they would be worth  more  to  the  Transvaal alive than dead.  Those who would depict Cronje���  by the Avay, my South African  friend pronounces it as though spelt  Crony���as the ideal hero of romance  should not forget how Baden-Powell  handled him at Mafeking. Several  thousand Boers, Cronje leading, set  forth to conquer the odd thousand  Britishers at Mafeking. A messenger was sent to the colonel summoning him to surrender.  "Why surrender?" queried Baden-  Powell.  "To avoid further bloodshed,"  wtis the reply.  "Ah! really?" said Baden-Powell.  "Will you be so good as to let me  know when tho bloodshed is going  to begin ? Haven't had any in horc  yet, don't you know. Awful sorry  if any of your men got hurt/  Baden-Powell he went back to  Cronje, reporting that he could do  nothing with the "rooinek.*' AVhere-  upon Cronje, with his 4000 Boers,  gave up the siege of Mafeking and  trekked for Kimberley.  My friend told me of meeting this  uncompromising hero at Pretoria.  Cronje was sojourning for a week  at the Transvaal hotel and was evi  deutly enjoying himself.   He looks  like a tramp on the rampage���is of  medium   height,   thickly   bearded,  strongly featured and dirty.    His  watery blue eyes have an unpleasant leer and ho is not in the habit  of looking men in the   face.    At  dinner, one heard  him all over the  hotel, bragging in the most bombastic fashion.    However, even his enemies credit him with a species of  blind courage and tell how splendidly lie fought in the Kaffir wars.  But they remember also how he  and   his  valiant   brothcrs-in-arms  blew up with dynamite the caves  containing the native women and  children.   A thorougly characteristic Boer trick this.    I cannot conclude this record of the latest international reputation without quoting my friend's comment on American sympathy and its generous expression in the yellow journals.  "My, my," he said; "before going  to South Africa I read a great deal  in   our   press   about  the   Russian  knout, the cruelties of Siberia, and  noted with fine admiration how our  peopled  writhed with  indignation  over the 'paddling' some small boys  had been given at the Elmira reformatory.    The  small  boys   were  spanked with a bit of wood.   In  the Journal the punishment was described as of blood-curdling  severity.    Well, I had to  spend a  week  or two on a Boer ranch, and  saw a  couple of Kaffirs���one a woman���  "sjamboked."      It's   a   memory   I  don't revive save wheu my nerves  go wrong.    Well, the  Kaffirs  died.  I was told they were rather fortunate  Kaffirs.    But  I'm  prejudiced  against Boers.    They're as cruel as  Apaches���even  Mrs. Schreiner admits as much���and as  ignorant as  Huns.    One might hope  for  better  things if it were not that they justify cutting the hide off a Kaffir by  Bible texts, and really believe them-  selves a superior race.    It's funny,"  he  added,  "this  sympathy  of the  Irish.    They  hate  the English, do  the   Boers,   but   they  regard   the  Irish as a  species  of white Kaffir.  For Catholics they have as  much  Indeed, they like  A -few days Jafcer Cronje sent a | use as for Jews,  similar message, and after the en- j only   Boers, but   that is   because  ���voy had  had a cup of tea with j they are a unit against foreigners.  If they ever get tho country to  themselves they'll split,into a dozen  pieces in half a decade, and there  will be no more business in South  Africa."  The other i.s a tiny smart little  Irishman, with a head full of  brains, as brave as a terrier, cool,  sagacious   and   lucky. Roberts  started his career in the Bengal artillery, and was then a  small delicate-looking despondent youngster,  who,  however,  had a tremendous  amount of ambition and tho grit of  the  devil.    He was iu the mutiny  and wdn the V. C, campaigned in  Abyssinia, and. saw service  Avher-  ever  there  was   fighting  in   England's little wars.    AVhen  the opportunity was given he showed he  could  organize and direct a grctft  movement.    He has never yet been  beaten, although there were some  close  shaves in  his second Afghan  campaign,  as  when  the  rising en  masse of the tribes about Cabul obliged him to evacuate the city, and  Bala-IIissar, to take refuge in the  Sherpur cantonments.   This was a  very near thing, for quite one hundred thousand Afghans surrounded  his small force of^ten thousand, not  half of them British; and wheu they  made their great attack on December 23rd, 1879, but for Roberts' excellent dispositions and the  pluck  of his mon he must have been overwhelmed.  I have seen Roberts a dozen times  in the house of lords���once I saw  him   there- with   Kitchener,   with  whom he is quite friendly.    Sometimes he talks���he has a thin voice  and a hesitant manner, but his sentences are clear cut and his manner  very firm.    I remember once seeing  this little, great man in the outer  lobby at Westminster waiting for  his son.    Lord Salisbury just then  came up to enter .the house of lords.  Lord Roberts did uot approach lord  Salisbury���indeed, it looked almost  as  if he  were not personally acquainted    with   him;    though,   of  course,   that   is   impossible.     The  great little soldier took off his hat  most ceremoniously, as if he were  saluting a sujjerior officer, and as if  he himself were the humblest nobody.
