 DAILY  EDITION   BY  MAIL  FIVE  DOLLARS A YEAR  WEEKLY EDITION  BY MAIL  TWO DOLLARS A YEAR  EIGHTH YEAR  -NELSON":  THURSDAY MORNING, MARCH 2?  1900.  TRICE FIVE  CENTS.  GERMAN TRIBUTE PAID TO  British Imperialism.  Bkrlix, March 21.���The Krcu/.e  Zui Cnng, in u remarkable article  dealing with tlio .South African war,  says : "Tlio war has demonstrated  tho unanimity of fooling among  tho English. Thoy arc all standing  together throughout good or evil  report, and tire compelling the admiration of the world. It also lias  .shown, in a most amusing manner,  the strength of tho imperialist idea,  liaA-ing done much in welding the  colonies into a A'oritable empire."  The article, however, disapproves  of the plan of lord Roberts to treat  , the Boers as rebels and it censures  llndyard Kipling for encouraging  the British to deal with them still  more harshly, despite the fact that  England never fought a moic  gallant foe. Jn conclusion, it declares that Cecil Rhodes, after his  an ival in London, will decide the  i'ate of the Boers.  The question xif damages for delaying and searching German vessels in South African waters is still  pending between England aud Ger-  ma'ny. The precise amounts to be  awarded each vessel hits not yet  been settled, excepting in the case  of the Bans Wagner, whose owners  will receive 150,000 marks, but the  negotiations are being carried on iu  the best spirit by both sides and  will soon come to a satisfactory  ending.  Dr. Krummachcr and Dr. Sim-  mard, military surgeons, who havo  just returned from the British  camps in South Africa, speak in  commendation of the sauitaiy arrangements there. They deny that  dum dum or other torturing bullets  are used by tho British, and assert  they did not witness a single instance of the actual breach of a rule  of the Red Cross Society. They  Wui'-mako a report to the German  war office. _  be in times of disturbances in  China. Similarly the warships of  the European powers have looked  after the protection of the Americans as well as of their own people  dining the operations of any of the  Chinese secret societies. But in  each case the rule has been observed, that the United States was  acting on its own motion, and  therefore it can be stated that in  tho present instance the commander  of the "Wheeling will act on directions from his own government  without being a party to any international demonstration.  PREPARING  THE  ADVANCE  BOERS FORCED TO RETREAT  Fighting at  Warrenton.  Loxnox, March 21.���The only  news from South Africa showing  activity on either side comes from  Warrenton, north of Kimberley,  where desultory firing occurred all  day Sunday, resulting in the retreat of the Boers towards Christi-  ania under shell fire. The progress  of this column towards Mafeking  has either almost entirely ceased or  is forbidden .to be mentioned in the  dispatches. Nothing new comes  from colonel Plumer, and Mafeking  apparently still awaits relief.  Embezzler Arrested.  Victoria^ March 21.2-JTaiues God-  dard, i'or sonic time past  employed  ��h clerk at  tho  Central  hotel, was  arrested  yesterday   afternoon   by  detectives Palmei and  Perdue on a  warrant issued  in ' Hamilton,  Ontario, for embe/.jdoment in that city  to the   extent *oJ" $5500.

The  chief   and  local  detectives located a man answeriug  the   description, but aaIioso name  was supposed to be Goddaid. ' The  Hamilton chief of police  was uoti-  ged  of this,  and ' yesterday  chief  Langley received a warrant for the  arrest.    When  accosted "by the detectives as CulJ he denied such was  his name.    lie denied that he wtis  ever in Hamilton aud averred that  -lie _was~ fronriiifstralia��� Finally,  however, he admitted that lie had  engaged  in   business  in Hamilton  under the name  of James Cull, although   ho   maintained    that   his  name was Goddaid.  agree-  Base-  Ilart,  Baseball Agreement,  CufCAOO, March 21.���The  ment between the American  ball League and James A.  president Of tho Chicago National  League team, whereby tho American league is allowed to place a  team in Chicago without opposition from the national league, will  not be foinially signed by president  Hart for ��overal daysvthough there  appears uoav to be no doubt that  an American league team will bo  seen hero this summer.

German Naval Arrangements.  Bgrmx, March 21.���From the  _coming_ siimmer German y__will_in-  ciease the number of her vessels  stationed abroad from' 10 to 21,  China getting 9 instead of 6, and  tho United Scates coast getting  three instead of one. The new arrangement Avill also involve sending  three warships to South Africa.  Military Situation Unchanged.  Loxnox, March 22.-4:12 a.m.���  Several telegrams have passed between president Kruger and the  British government in addition to  tho Salisbury-Kruger correspondence already published. The foreign office received a di&patch from  Pretoria yesterday. The contents  of these communications cannot yet  be obtained.  So far as the military situation is  concerned there is practically no  change. Lord Roberts is quietly  making preparations for the next  move. As necessary to a beginning,  generals Gatacre and Brabant are  swiftly moving from a point in the  southern districts of the Free  State, dispersing or accepting  the surrender of any remaining  Boers, thus insuring the safety of  lord Roberts' communications before starting towards Pretoria. A  correspondent of the Daily News at  Springfontein, describing the movements, says:  "General Gatacre is sweeping  through the country like a cyclone,  Avith flying columns in all directions. His SAvif tness and strategy  have proved, of inestimable value to  lord Roberts. The rebuilding of  the railway bridge at Norval's Pont  will occupy tAvo months. The temporary bridge Avill be completed in  about ten days. Meanwhile supplies are transported by an aerial  tramway across the gap. These  ���works necessarily delay the providing of supplies for the adA'auco."  Lord Methuen's movements north  of Kimberley are bolieA'ed. to be a  prelude to the gathering of a column of 20,000 men, Avith Kimberley  as a base, to strike eastward from  Fourteen Streams into the Transvaal.  The long and anxiously awaited  neAvs of the relief of Mafeking has  not yet been received. Mr. Schreiner, the Cape premier, has .-.granted  the request of the mayor of Cape  Town that a public holiday' be proclaimed throughout the colony on  the relief of Mafeking.  Mausers for the Boers."  'New York, March 21.���Two gun  dealers in this city have completed  arrangements for Jthe shipment  from the armory at ��� Springfield,  Massachusetts, of ten thousand  Mauser rifles and 5,000,000 rounds  of Mauser ammunition, bought  from tho Avar department last week.  A large part of tho Mansers, it is  said, Avill be shipped to Antwerp or  Amsterdam, which are the tAvo  largest markets in the Avorld for  munitions of Avar. Some of the  rifles will find their way into South  Africa, where arms are greatly  wanted in the various rebellions.  Playing Their Own Hand.  Washington, March 21.���The  fact that the state department has  consistently, throughout the many  uprisings in China necessitating the  presence of foreigu warships adhered to its policy of acting alone  is quoted here as sufficient to indicate the error in the statement connecting the presence of the gunboat  Wheeling Avith an international demonstration. It is pointed out that  "in the past United States warships  have undertaken to protect all Caucasians,  European and   American,  Cecil Rhodes Sails.  _������..,    r     ,       Cape   Toavx,    March   21.���Cecil  rear the port iu which they might I Rhodes sailed for England today.

Washington, March 21.���Lieutenant-commander Seaton Sehroe-  der, secretary of the naval inspection -board,���has-been- selected- to  succeed captain Leary as naval  governor of the island of Guam.  Commander Schroeder had applied  foi and had been promised governorship of the island of Tutuili, but  the administration of affairs of  Guam is believed to be more desirable, and many of the difficulties  have already boon removed through  captain Leary. The navy department expects a great future for  Guam in a commercial Avay.  Afraid of the Censor.  CrJDVKi.AXP, Ohio, March 21.���As  a result of the movement recently  inaugurated in the city against the  presentation of certain plays, the  engagement of Mrs. Langtry, Avho  Avas billed to open -at the Euclid  avenue opera house on April 2nd in  "The Degenerates" has beou cancelled.

Loxnox, March 22.���The Melbourne correspondent of the Times  says: "Tho governor of South  Australia has received from Mr.  Chamberlain a . ?tclegram to the  effect that the -British Avar office  ivill offer 111 commissions to Australians in the infantry and Royal  Horso Artillery.  The Times, commenting upon the  Melbourne dispatch, says : "This  important and'wise decision to give  commissions iu the army to Australians Avill naturally be extended  to the other * colonies who  have ' so nobly and generously helped us in the AA'ar.  It cannot be doubted that the  government's action- Avill be highly  appreciated. It is a graceful recognition of splendid services freely  done to the cor/ynon cause under  the common flag The offer of commissions is only a^ step, and not a  very great one, to a consummation  which all loyal British subjects ardently desire, but it is a significant  step Avhich may be pregnant Avith  consequences of the utmost moment  to us all."  Steyn Kruger's Tool.  London, March 22.���A Daily  Chronicle correspondent at Bloemfontein, telegraphing Tuesday,  March 20th, says:-"The civil government has been reorganized. J.  A.

I failed to  ascertain the nature of the negotiations, or whether sir Alfred Mil-  ner's departure from Cape Toavii is  connected with them, but I should  not be surpiised il* tho war* collapsed."  THE OUTLOOK FOR THE YEAR  Is Most Encouraging.  The outlook for the year is most  encouraging,   as far as Nelson  is  concerned.    A concerted attempt is  being made, for political purposes  only, to make  it appear that the  country is likely to be ruined, all  because a few mine managers and  political wire-pullers arc opposing  the men avIio belieA'e that the eight-  hour day has come to stay as far as  underground work in mines is concerned.0   Inquiries  among business  men, avIio are not of the Conseiwa-  tiAre persuasion, elicit the information that business is good in Nelson.  The manager of one large concern  said one day this Aveek :    "Business  is good ; far better than I expected  it  Avould   be."    Builders   say  the  outlook is fully aS good as it Avas at  this time last  year      Yet,  at this  time last year, the eight-hour law  for underground workers in mines  AA'as  not a subject of   discussion.  Real estate dealers claim that there  is   a   fair   business   in  tlieir  line.  When the situation is summed up,  it is in brief :    The  man  avIio has  faith in the country aud iu themselves   knoAV that   the  eight-hour  question would  havo  beeu  settled  six months ago had it not been for  a half dozen  political mine  managers at Nelson and Kaslo.     Byron  N. White, manager  of  the Slocan  Star mine, says politics and not the  eight-hour day, is at the bottom of  the   trouble  in   the  Slocau.     The  Mining Record of Ottawa, the organ  of the Canadian Institute of Mining   Engineers,    saj'S   that    overcapitalization     and     incompetent  management,  and  not   the  eight-  hour laAV, caused the suspension of  Avork at  the War  Eagle  mine at  Rossland.    The  Mining  Review of  London, the organ of the promoting  class of mine operators,  says  that  tho   eight-hour   law   had  nothing  whatever'to' do with  the closing  down of. the Hall Mines, Limited,  at' Nelson. . NotAA'ithstauding  the  opinions of these eminent authorities, there are  people avIio believe i  the country has gone to the dogs; I  yet   today there are more mines  actually being worked in this pio\r-  inee than ovei before in its history.  .

In  convention the Conservatives of Kootenay  declared for party linos; that   is  they declared for Avhat they termed Liberal-Conservative principles,  whether hold by professed Liberals  or professed   Conservatives.     The  resolution committing them to this  course Avas moved by D. B. Bogle of  -    liossland, and its preamble set out  that the organization of the present  Liberal-Conservative   party   could  ���   foa traced to a crisis in the  history  of the Dominion Avhich called for  .the union oi* the best men of both  parties.      The     resolution     we,nt  through Avith a rush, and none appeared to notice that it did   not  harmonize Avith the admitted vieAvs  of-the delegates for a straight party  division.    The next heard   of the  "resolution is at Vancouver -where  F.  C. Cotton ,Avas endeavoring to  dissuade the Conservatives of that  .  city from dividing upon party lines.  It  Avill    appear  strange  that   the  same subject-matter should be used  for advancing* clirectly antagonistic  view's. - JYfr.   Cotton   agreed   Avith  them that there existed a provincial  crisis at present.    It vras such that  they should accept the cooperation  of Liberals wlso agreed Avith them.  Was  iiot  their name Liberal-Conservative, and had not their great  '   leader,~~sir"~Jolui'^Iaccloiraldj^iveir  ', them their precedent in the formation of the present party?   It cannot be denied that from the premises Mr. Cotton Avas  moro logical  than were tho ConsorA'ativesin convention in this city, but they turn-  '   ed his proposition doAvn aud at the  v same time endorsed the Netaon convention's action in.passing virtually  tho same resolution.  Tiik editor of the iMiucr is a man  of resource in the manufacture of  s'a-ider.    He alone, of all the citizens  of  XHhon,  has  discoveied   a  sinister  plot on   the part of mayor  Houston    in   the    failure   of    Mr.  Mini roe, Mr. Kelly aud Mr. If or ton  to secure corporation Avork.    Overlooking  the  fact  that'there  AA'ero  luoro men offering than there Avere  places to fill, aud that charity organizations and others solicited employment Tor  deserving cases, the  Miner seized upon the circumstance,  that Mr. Munroo, Mr. Kelly and Mr.  Horton  failed   to   secure   employment, as conclusive  evidence that  mayor Houston gave transients employment for the sole purpose of  Avay of his ambition. This is Avhat  a disappointed man considers fair  criticism of a public man in municipal affairs.  It    would   bo    idle    for   mayor  Houston to expect to please everybody.    A feAV days ago he AA'as approached by one of D. J. Beaton's  sons, Avho  requested him  to   give  employment to  a   man   avIio   had  tramped  over the  city in a  vain  search  for  work.    The   mayor accepted  Mr. Beaton's  story that it  Avas a deserving case and the desired  employment  was  sound.    It   may'  have been that the man who secured the privilege of earning a =m'eal  AA'as a transient, but this did not  reflect discredit upon Mr. Beaton in  endeavoi ingto secure work for him,  or upon mayor Houston in furnishing it.    Even a transcient must eat.  But, it appears that Mr. Beaton's  father,    Avhose   bile 'discolors   the  Miner, sees.in such actions a hideous  plot on the part of mayor Houston  to stuff a voters' list.    In such an  event lie must count" his sou as a  <party to tho plot. ���  Tub Liberal leaders of Victoria  appear to'be almost a unit iu their  opposition to the introduction of  party lines. Among those who  have come out openly in opposition-  to the scheme are E. V. Bodwell,  Gordon Hunter, colonel Gregory  and Dr. Milne. The Conservatives  do not appear to be so pronounced,  blftainong tliein are Charles Liigrin  of the Colonist and ox-speaker IX  \V. Higgins,  Thr Vancouver World is meeting  Avith more or less difficulty in keeping out of the political rut of former  years. It has SAvallowed Joseph  Martin and his platform, eight-hour  hnv aud all, but it still remains for  tho World to sandbag F. C. Carter-  Cotton. To do this the World  charges Cotton AVith incompetency,  and^ cites the eight-hour law as  among tho things for which Cotton  iinust be ansAverable, No paper but  the World could denounce Cotton  for enacting the eight-hour laav, aud  at the same time applaud Martin  for defending it.  ity of the marriages Avhich his  minister licensed. Ontario has had  party goA'ernment for OA'er a quarter of a century, yet the other day  Avithin three of half the members  of Ontario's legislature, by their  votes, declared that tho government  of thb day secured and AA'as maintaining oflicc by election frauds.  Iv the  officers  and  members of  the    miners'    unions    throughout  Kootenay Avere as much at fault as  the  Nelson   Miner AA'ould   haA'e its  readers  believe,  it   Avould  not   be  necessary   for   tho   editor  of   the  Miner to daily publish falso statements  concerning the unions, and  from    these   premises   sIioav   just  Avhere the unions are at fault.    The  Miner   says   that   the   miners    of  Kootenay are the slaves of union  officers in Butte.    The local officers  have repeatedly denied this.    They  manage their oavii affairs as completely as any other local union of  an  international  order.    It  therefore becomes a matter of veracity  betAA'een the officers of the local unions and the editor of the Miner as  to whether the miners know more  concerning the   working   of their  own union than does the subsidized  editor of the mine managers.  &  <H* - i* ���** -** ���<** - ** ���** - 2* -** ��� & ���**  KV'^v'H.'V'V'V-V-'V^ .NsKt ���*��>*.  ��� fi*' fi*  =!!&���  Mr   ����*��***���*��������:��*&  iff  SEND  FOR  SAMPLES  *S53.33:53 *3:-3*33 &  tty  m  i��  f  it  !��>  if  **^^S& *Z8��35&. -*33��-<��85* ^��5��>��a5j�� ^S5*-*sgs> -��s&-^�� ���*&!_ <&  ��� 00- fS����- 00' 00- 00- 00- fi*- 00 ��� fi*- fi*- 00- fi*' 00'fiB/,  sfeeeeeseese  Ladies'  Mackintoshes  Latest Styles  %S:-533333:-33:-3  m  m  w  iff  Hi  iff  Hi  NEW   SPRINQ    GOODS  We have opened this week a large shipment of import goods direct  from English manufacturers, therefore we are able to sell  goods much cheaper than buying from eastern houses  Vi/  If the men in high authority have any doubt  as to tbe serious condition ol* affairs in the Kooto-  na\s a \ isit to Xelson and the neighboring towns  ju&t now would afl'oul an opportunity of securing  the most com in< ing pioof.

Everything points to tin immediate extention of the nickel industry  in Canada.    In spiLe oi the Canada  Copper  Company's   plea that   the  cost of chemicals and coal in Ontario is so great, compared with the  cost  in  the United  States,  as   to  make the establishment of a nickel  refinery here out of tiie question,  we shall, nevertheless, see the business of refining staitcd in this province  in  a  very short time.     The  Ontario government has finally decided on  a nickel policy.    Last fall  the government passed an ordcr-in-  council     prohibiting     the    export  of   nickel    mutlc   produced   from  crown   lands  patented  subsequent  to the date of tho order.    This was  the iirst installment of the government's nickel policy.    Now we have  the proposal to encourage the refining of nickel iu Ontario by placing  a tax on nickel ore, the tax to be  remitted on such of the product as  is icfmecl in Ontario.    Finally, the  commissioner of crown  lands proposes to petition the Dominion parliament not to  revive the  Or ford  Copper Company's patent for refining nickel.    The object is to make  this company's process public ptop-  crty. so that their plant and process  in New Jersey may be duplicated in  Ontario.    The government arc undoubtedly in earnest, and by some  means or another they ���will' foice  the refining of nickel to be done hi  Canada.  It is  a circumstance "worthy of  notice that this aggressive policy is  adopted by the government at the  ' very time when the Cataract Power  Company of J h�� mil ton is in a  position to .supply th(j current iipces-nry  to  operate the  Uoepfncr Refining  'Company's    nickel   plant.      It   is  stuted  that #000  electrical  horsepower    will   bo' required   by   the  Uoepfncr   company.      Hon.   .7.  M.  Gibson, attorney-general in the Ontario government, is the head of the  Cataract Power Company and a cii-  l'octor  of tho  Uoepfncr  company.  Wo don't aassorb that there is   a  direct [connection btlween the announcement of   the   government's  policy and the completion of the  Hoopfner refining"'plant, but wc do  say that  the  sequence  of   events  ���has   a,   suspicious   look' about   it.  When the attorney-general started  the Cataract PoAver Company two  or three years  ago, did ho know  that  the  government  intended to  -adopt a���policy-compelling-the re--  fining of nickel to be done in  the  province?   Whether he did or did  not he seems to have struck it jusL  right.       The    Canadian   engineer  states that tholfoopfner company's  plant will be ready J'or bn.sinc.v5 in  the coming spring,and as .soon as it  is started work will bo begun on a  iiicjccl-stcol  plant wliich, with the  nepospary buildings, will cost about  $0,000,000,   Tho true inwardness of  the    Cataract   Power    Company's  operations since Its Incorporation is  now -coming to  tlio surface.   The  people of Hamilton (with tho exception of a few fortunate insiders)  didn't know what to make out of  the  conceit.    But   the   gentleman  Who organised  the   company was  able to pee further into the future  than  any   of   his   fellow-citizens.  {Ion.  Mr. Gibson  is an  up-to-date  politician and a keen business man.  We prophecy that lie will give up  polities before long, if politics don't  give him up the sooner.   \TIe is already a made man.   The Cataract  Slower Company obtained valuable  concussions 'from the  government.  There is  money   in  tlio   Cataract  company and its half-dozen subsidiary electric interests.    The IJoep-  i'tusj. Refining Company comes into  existence in the nick of time.   It  plarfcs in the nickel business under  the most   favorable   auspices.     It  ought to be a monoy-jntiker.    If the  attorney-general does not rapidly  develop   into a  millionaire  it  will  not be for hick of his prophetic intuition and shrewd business ability.

T.  how in marching from  Estcourt at  H o'clock in the morning in a heavy  downpour   of   rain,   his   regiment  came to a  river  which  they  were  ordered  to  ford.      "We  had,"  ho  states, "no pontoons or material for  bridging, so we avc re forced to  get  through by first sending a mounted  scout oa'oi* to ascertain  the  depth,  Avhich   look   u��  up  to  our chests.  Then the horse came back again and  a chain of men, holding on to one au-  other'.s straps, tho first man clinging  to the horse. A\as the way the trick  Avas done,    it Avas laughable then,  but miserable after, for Ave  had to  stand seven hours in the rain until  the pontoons came from  Estcourt.  Ilou ever, one of the colonial scouts,  getting impatient, shoAved  the engineers a dodge. lie made a team of  bullocks swim the liver and drag a  big wagon to the  other  side,  half  A\ay up the bank;   then  another,  and another, until they formed  a  bridge, by Avhich the transport AA'as  brought over."  Lokal Anzeiger telegraphs that the  minister of foreign affairs has prepared an official communique .which  will be published within the next  day or tAvo. It con tain's Russia's  answer to president Kruger's request for ''intervention.- The communique has been drawn up witli  the knoAvledge and consent of  France and Germany and has received the full approval of the czar.  As regards its contents, all that the  correspondent has been able to  learn is that the note is directed  Avith due precautions against England, and its tone is very serious  and Avill certainly not fail to make  a deep impression.  .\K0-  ; ^* aft*- ��$>< .fiStr <es"-��sa��' ��g&' ��*���  ���.Hfc, ���***, ������*-ja, .Vn,'^ .^v ���>** ��� ^fc.  fi*. fi* .fi*. 0* .0*. fi*  fi* ��� fi*- fi* ' fi*- 00 ��� 00' fi* ' fi*' fi* ��� fi*- fi* ��� fi*' 00- **��� 00.  lf*'0��.
