Beyond lord  Roberts' own dispatch, nothing  more lias been permitted to come  through. Doubtless lord Roberts  himself is fully employed with important military operations. The  dispatch from Capo Town saying  that "general French has arrived  at Bloemfontein," probably does  not mean that he lias entered the  city.  Lord Roberts' movement may  mean either that the Boers have cut  the raihvay to the north orthat the  British cavalry have done so,  former, then it may  that no rolling  seized, but the  If the  be assumed  stock has been  jcneral assumption  is that the latter interpretation is  con eel.

Loxnox, March 14.���The Times  commenting editorially this moi'ii-  ing upoii the reply of lord Salisbury to the message from the Boor  presidents says: "The government  has given the only eonceh'able  reply to the extraordinary Kruger-  Steyn telegram, a reply Avhich  Avill be hailed with profound satisfaction throughout " the empire.  Wc are sincerely glad to see the  attitude of tho United States in  transmitting the proposals. Washington's aorvices, of course, have  been declined, but avo need hardly  say in the .same cordial and friendly  spirit in which they AA'ere offered.  The news that general French commands Bloemfontein is an instructive comment ou the preposterous  character of the Boer pretensions."  Most of the papers express sentiments similar to those of the Times.  The Standard says: "It is hard  to treat AA'ith any seriousness an  appeal AA'hich ignores the palpable  realities of the situation. So far as  it is meant for diplomatic use  abroad, the appeal is sheer Avaste of  labor. Knowing our A'ieAvs, the  diplomatists of both hemispheres  Avill respect them."

Loxnox, March 13.���-A parliamentary paper containing the telegrams sent to the British government by the presidents of the South  African Republic and the Orange  Free State and Great Britain's re-  phr thereto was issued this afternoon. It first gives the telegram  seut by the two presidents to the  marquis of Salisbury as follows:  ."Br.oEAiFOXTEiN,  March 5.���The  blood and  the  tears  of thousands  who haA'e suffered by this AA'ar and  the prospect of all moral and  economic ruin AvhereAvith South Africa"  is rioAV threatened,  make it necessary for both  belligerents to ask  themselves dispassionately, and as  in  the   sight   of   the   living  God,  for     what    are      they     fighting  and   Avhether   the   Avill   of   each  justifies all  this  appalling misery  and deA'astation.    With this object,  and  in  view of the assertions  of  various British statesmen   to the  effect that this Avar AA'as begun and  is being carried ou AA'ith the set purpose of undermining her majesty's  authority in  South Africa,  ancl of  setting up an administration  OA'er  all of South Africa independent of  her majesty's, goA'ernment, Ave consider  it our duty to solemnly declare that this AA'ar was undertaken  solely   as a  defensive measure to  maintain the threatened independence of the South African Republic,  and is only continued in order to secure and maintain the incontestable  independence of   both republics as  sovereign international states,  and  to obtain the assurance that those  of her majesty's subjects avIio have  taken part Avith us in this AA'ar shall  suffer no harm Avhatever in person  or property.  "On these conditions, but on these  conditions alone, are aa'c now, as iu  the past", desirous of seeing peace  reestablished in South Africa.  While if her majesty's goA'ernment  is determined to destroy the independence of the lepublics, there is  nothing left to lis and our people  but to persevere in the second  course already begun.  ."Jn spite of the OA'erAvhelniing  prominence of the British empire  avc are confident'that',God, Avho  lighted thcunextinguishable fire of  the lovo of fieedom in tho hearts of  ourselves 'and of our fathers, avi'H  not forsake us and Avill accomplish  his Avork in us and in our dependents.

"In the beginning of October  las't, peace existed between her  majesty and the two republics  under conventions Avhich were'then  in existence. A discussion had  been proceeding for some mouths  between her majesty's goA'ernment  and the South African Republic, of  Avhich the object was to obtain retires* for certain very serious  grievances under Avhich the British  residents in South Africa were  suffering. In the course of these  negotiations the South African Republic had, to the knowledge of Jior  majesty's government, made considerable armament0, and the latter  had consequently taken steps to  provide corresponding reinforcements of the British garrison at  Cape Town and iu Natal.   No in  fringement of the rights guaranteed by the conventions had up to  that period taken place on tho British side.  "Suddenly on tAA'O days' notice  the South African Republic, after  issuing an insulting ultimatum, declared war upon her majesty, and  the Orange Free State, with'iyhom  there had uot eA'en been any discussion, took a similar step. Her.  majesty's dominions AA'ere immediately invaded by the tAvo republics.  Siege was laid to three towns  Avithin the British frontier, a large  portion of tAvo colonies AA'as overrun,  Avith great destruction of property  and life>-and-.the- republics claimed  the right to treao, the inhabitants  of extensive portions ot" -I��o.  majesty's dominions as if those dominions had been annexed to One or  the other of them.  "In anticipation of these operations, the South African republic  had been accumulating for many  past military stores'on an enormous  scale which, by their character,  could only haA'e been intended for  use against Great Britain. Your  honors make some observations of a  negative character upon the object  Avith which these preparations Avere  made. It do not think it necessary  to discuss the questions you haA'e  raised, but tho result of these preparations, carried on with great  secrecy, has been that the British  empire has been compelled to confront au invasion Avhich has entailed  upon the empii-3 a costly Avarfare,  and the loss of thousands of precious lives. This great calamity is  the penalty Great JBritain has suffered for having of recent years  acquiesced in the existence of the  two republics.  "In A'ieAv of the use to Avhich the  tAvo republics haA'e put the jiosition  Avhich j|A\'as given them, and the  calamities their unprovoked attack  has inflicted on her majesty's dominions, her majesty's government  can only answer your honors' telegram by sayingJ they are not prepared to assent to the independence  cither of the South "African Republic or of the Orange Free State."

A petition is being prepared and  will be circulated for the signature  of ratepayers asking ihe council to  submit a loan bykuv for $150,000,  the money to be used for providing  the cily with an up-to-date electric  power and light plant. There are  tAvo points on the river belo\v^ Nelson available for the installation of  such a plant.  Nelson is now the chief city in  the interior of the province, and if  she AA'as in a position to supply  poAver cheap to smelters anil other  largo industrial enterprises, it  Avould not be long before she AS'ould  be the loading city in tho province.

Tho city of Nelson should be in a  position ,to furnish all the poAver  required' at a nominal sum per  horse power.

ABERDEEN BLOCK  @he ggribmtcl  Win;x tho  tiamway   company'  bylaw was being considered by the  1S$M) council, an attempt Avas made  * by   the  promoters   to  smuggle   a  clnu*c into the charter Avhich would  enable  the   company  not   only to  carry on a tramway business but a  lighting and power business as well.  The trick, however, was discovered  in time, by alderman Fletcher, and  the scheme of the promoters frustrated.    This circumstance taken in  conjunction Avith subsequent eA'cnts  would go to sIioav that the so called  traimvay venture Avas not so much  a tramway scheme as it Avas a coti-  spiiacy on   the   part  of   the  promoters  of  the  tiamway  and   the  West  Kootenay Power  and Light  Company to secure an entrance,into  the  city unhampered  by  any  restrictions' AvhateA-er.    The city council, last year, refused to even submit  to the people, a bylaw authorizing  the tramAA'ay company to dispose of  poAA'cr, and the so-called tiamway  promoters Avere  forced  to  take   a  charter for tramway purposes only.  That they .are not satisfied with it  is shown by the fact that they haA'e  not operated   more   than   half of  'their   tAA'O-mile   tramway ^system,  and,, by their persistent effoits to  secure au amendment to their charter.    They not only ignore the conditions aa'IhcIi the  people imposed  upon    then   in   leturn   for'their  chatter,  but   in   the face  of   this  apply to the city,.council for new  and  special  privileges.    If il ever  comes   to a   vote   the   jatepayers  should   snow   the   tramway   company's proposition under so far that  it could never be presented again.  interior, and more especial.1 y jjjast  and lYfistJCo-'jc ~w ami Southern  i ale, ii the only section of the province in no Avay interested iu this  fight betAA'cen rival tOAAns. The  eight members that Avill be elected  to the next legislative from the  Kootenays and Yale should be men  able and willing to lead, and not  follow. They should compel the  factionists on the coast to follow,  and for a Avhile be hewers of AA'ood  and carriers of Avater for the people  avIio are making British Columbia  one of the most prosperous provinces in the Dominion.  Yesterday Morxing The Tiun-  uxi: AAas the only daily paper in  British Columbia that published  the iicaa's that general French had  captured the capital of the Orange  Free State. The news was procured  at enormous expense, but the Tribune Association, Limited, aud the  Canadian Pacific Telegraph Company Avere equal to tho occasion.  If the fears of the Minc-Man-  ageis' Combine aio grounded ton  facts, the Strathcona Horse should  be sent to Rossland instead of  South Africa.  TYftnx theicisan election pend-  - ing^Martin is moro considerate of  working niiucis than  ho is  otherwise.    While lie Avas attoi ney-general in premier Semlin's cabinet he  aliQAved   the bucking mine-o\A'ners  to secure all the special constables  they desired.

Circumstanced as he is  at present however, premier Mai-Liu  is very anxious to stand in aa ith the  Avorking  minors   rather  than   the  b.'icking   mine-manage-!��.

The statement1  so often made during the past few  months that mining is ,n hazardous  vocation has been most fatally  demonstrated ; Avhile life in a min-  -ii)g town has also beeu shown to be  not devoid of risk and danger. To  the miners' union the disasters have  come as a heavy bloAv, for the loss  of three bright members in so  short a time has caused much  sorrow. Tlieir fellow members here  are a unit iu extending their sympathies to the-sister lodge at Sandon, and to the families and friends  of the deceased brethren.  The Bosun has a carload of zine  ore ready for export to Belgium.  Mud slides have been frequent  the pa��t few days on_the_Nuku^p_<fc_  Slocan railway, delaying train ser-  A'ieo considerably.

Tho re are numerous enquil ies be-  for Now   Denver  realty  f  eottwge  known through here iioav that R.  F. Green, M. P. P. of Kaslo, Avill  stand for re-election in this con-'  stituency, and he is just as generally conceded to be a Avinner. He  will get the labor A'ote in its entirety, AA'ith a large majority of the  business men. Judging from appearances and A'oiced sentiments^  the feeling of the camp is strongly  against the introduction of party  linos. Mr. Green giA'es a flat denial  to the rumor that he contemplated  resigning in favor of the candidature of C. \V. McAnn, now mayor of  Kaslo.  Nelson may well be proud of its  aggregation    of    minstrels,  for  in  their performance here last evening  they  fully  earned  the  reputation  given them of being  first-class entertainers.    While the Bosun  hall  aviis not ci'OAVtled  yet  the  receipts  at the door  reached  three  figures,  and the audience AA'as in  sympathy  Avith the performers from the start.  The program Avent through Avithout  a hitch and was given Avith a snap  and   vim   seldom  witnessed   Avith  amateurs.      Tho  jokes  Avere  good  and  catchy,  though    peihaps   too  much  of the''an est" and "policeman"   variety;     the    music    and  choruses Avell executed and balanced;  the dances and specialties fully  up  to date, ancl the cake Avalk  simply  out   of   sight���the    Avhole    being  ��plendidly   staged    and   directed.  Charley Honey man,   one    of    the  "bone8," had to retire cm ly  in  the  game,  not   feeling   Avell,   and  his  presence  A\as much   missed.    It is  hard to  particularize, paiticulaily  AA'eieso many encores avcio gi\en,  but certain it is the rag-time melodies AA'ere the most enjoyed.    Eddie  McGinn. Harry Marshall and  W. J.  Caldwell Avere great f.ivoi itc-s,   aud  the  quartette,  Messrs.  Thompson,  Prosser, ITaidio  and  Caldwell Avon  No. 1 honors.

Iu response  to a  spirited    eucoie,  he   rerited  "Our  Bobs."    Mr. Hall has a mo=t pleasing   stage    piesence.       Marshall's  stump speech  AA'as  a  side-cracker,  the audience shrieking Avith  laughter.    In the lag-time quadrille and  cakewalk    a    happy   climax   AA'as  reached to a capital  CA'cning's entertainment.    God Save the Q-recn  AA'as given Avith a A'im, Avith  hearty  cheers for  her  majesty.     The orchestra AA'as excellently handled Jby  J.' IL  Millward, .the pianist,   Mr-,.  Millward,   being  the   mainstay of  tho singers throughout.    No better  entertainment  has  been  given   in  tho camp,  and  the    minstrels  do  themselves,and   their  city  credit.  The  management   appeal s��� to  be'  most capable and  painstaking, and  if OA'er they come back hero  agaur  they Avill havo a bumper house.  *>-fi*  00 . fi* .00 .00 .00 .00 .00  fi*.0*  <��Sy ���-*>��, 'Xfe. -^a*.

Mr. Ker, who had just returned  from Vancouver, 1 elated to the  meeting the losult of the deliberations of tlio executive of the association at Vancouver on Thursday.  A resolution, he said, had been  adopted favoring party lines, and  from what ho could gather a large  portion of the Mainland was in  favor of the idea.  Mr. Dewdney, who followed Mr.  Ker, also icported the result of the  meeting of the executive. Ho also  was of the opinion that the Mainland was strongly in favor of the  adoption of party Hues.  Messrs. Cuthberl, Boggs, Cassidy,  Heaven and Turner followed. Mr.  Turner did not think the time quite  lipe for the introduction of party  lines. As far as he himself was  concerned, he stood at all times for  tho good of the country regardless  of personal advantage. lie had no  desire to maintain the leadership of  the pr.rty behind him if it was considered advisable to have a change,  bub he would do all in his power ab  all times to lid the country of the  curse of Marbinism and restore a  proper condition of affairs.

James Croniu, managing director  of the St. Eugene Consolidated Mining Company has returned to  Moyie. Speaking of the company's  intentions for the future he said it  was their intention to start the  concentrator as soon as the work of  enlarging was completed, which  would be about the 15bh of April.  There are now 90 men on the payroll of bhe compan?/, bub as soon as  bhe mill is iu operation this number  .will be 'doubled.' Thera > is much  outside work in contemplation, and  ,peihaps between -10 and 50 men  will be-employed at this. A flume  will be built 'from Wilson cieek, to  connect with the St. J'htgene flume,  which" will mean several months  work, and the employment of quite  a number of men. The Lake Shore  compressor is being taken apart and  moved down to be set up again  near the one ab the St. Eugene.  A slight reduction has been made  in the scale of wages paid some of  tho miueM by the company. Machine men still got $3.50 and muck-  eva $3.00 per day", but hand men  have been reduced to the $3.25  scale,-the same as being paid in the  Slocan camps. Contract work has  been discontinued.  and Bros.  REAL ESTATE AND  INSURANCE AGENTS  rOHN CHOLDITCH & CO.-Front street, Nel-  "    son, -wholesale groccis.  PROVISIONS, PRODUCE AND FRUITS.

Tin's season will see great  developments in this vicinity as a large number of valuable claims were  located last summer. Prospectors will find a splendid field to work in.  Much of the mineral bearing belt has not yet beeu explored. The Simil-  kameen country is an ideal one for prospectors, water, feed, and fuel  being abundant. The winter climate is the mildest iu the interior.  Business men will find plenty of openings at Keremeos. There is a chance  for those with capital to get in on the ground door. The surrounding  land is of the richest, and best adapted for the production of high class  fruits and vegetables. The Columbia k Western railway is now being  located through Keremeos, and up the Similkameen river. Stages connect between Greenwood and Keremeos via Fairview; also between Pentieton and Keremeos.
