Official circles here regarded tho propositions as merely a ruse  for the Boors Lo gain time ancl did not consider that president Kruger Avas yet ready to consider the demands which Great Britain  would make as a reimbursement for tho loss of life and great expenditure.  ,'i It was understood that  president  Krugci's  advances had  met  i with an emphatic rejection at the hands of loid Salisbury, who was  !) believed to have said that no such attempt to retain the independence  1 of the Tiansvaal should be considered i'oi" a  moment by tho  British  i  I government.  tXZZZIZXIXZZZIlZZiZXZX'ZiXTZZZnZ-ZZZIIZZZXZZJZZZZlZZZlZXlZZZZXZXXZZZZZZXZZZXZXXXZZlZXZZZZZZZZZZIZZZIZ) .Iini-EX  EXTRADITION WAS WAIVED  Eowdea in Provincial Jail.

Special constable Beer had  also, made  up his  |mind to take that* train  if he did  [not find him, so tho capture was  [inevitable.    Mr. Beer,got  track of  [hiin the night before and was fol-  Jlowing him  up, and  deserves con-  Isiderable credit for a good  piece of  Ivoik.

He  is delighted with the results which  have beeu obtained at the Moyie  and Lake Shore mine, one of the  St. Eugene Consolidated group.  There are now S4 men working cn  tho property and a tunnel is being  driven on the 800-foot level, which  has crosscut twelvo feet of solid ore  with no hanging wall in sight. The  mine has fifteen levels with ore in  each one. Messrs. Whyte and Tait  visited the property a day or so  ago and took away samples of the  ore.  As the Rev. R.

They show in  Sandon, New Denver, and Kaslo on  Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday,  nights respectively.  GOOD BUSINESS THIS WEEK  Wholesalers Satisfied.  The Nelson wholesalers report a  good week's business, with every  prospect of trade being brisk from  now on. During the latter part of  the week the tie-up on the Nelson  & Fort Sheppard road rather disorganized trade along the line, but as  the road is now open the dealers  will make up for lost time.

Loxnox, March 9.���A Times dispatch from Poplar Grove, under  yesterday's date, goes so far as to  assert that the Boer rout was complete, that the submission of the  Free State is being demanded by  the burghers from their unwilling  president, and it is expected that  its submission will be made within  a  week.   The correspondent adds:  "Probably tho - Boers' wisest  course was flight, but it was most  undignified and is certain to produce consternation at Bloemfontein. There is a growing outcry  against any further identification  of the Free State with the Transvaal's interests."  Dispatches from the Boer camp  at Glencoe, via Lorenzo Marquez, depict president Kruger as donning  a bandolier, seizing a rifle, and inviting volunteers to accompany  him, as he wishe'd to have a shot at  the enemy himself. President Kruger is quoted as having declared iu  his address to the troops that he  "did not know whether arbitration or intervention would end the  struggle, but that it would end  quickly within the next month he  strongly believed."  Norval's Pont Occupied.  Loxdox,   March   9.-2:05  p.m.���  r  BOERS WERE COMPLETELY ROUTED AT POPLAR GROVE  Artillery and Cavalry the Cause.  London, March 9.���The war office has received the following  dispatch from lord Roberts:  Poplar Grove, Friday morning.���Presidents Kruger and Sleyn  were both present at the fight of March 7th, and did all in their  power to rally their troops. The rout, however, was complete, tho  men declaring that they could not stand against the British artillery  and such a formidable force of cavalry."  London, March 10.���The correspondent of the Daily News says:  "The Boers were seized with a panic, thus spoiling, the "whole plan  which had been beautifully calculated to destroy them utterly. As  the sixth division emerged from a hiddeu position and appeared on  the crest with the mounted infantry in skirmishing order, the Boers  thought the whole earth was covered with soldiers, in their front  and rear and ou their flanks. They did not wait to verify their*suppositions, but fled, seized apparently with a dread that they might  share the fate of Cronje."  All the special dispatches from Poplar Grove confirm the reports  of the panic of the Boers.    The Morning Post's correspondent says:  "President Kruger shed tears at his ineffectual attempt to rally  tl the Boers who were completely paralyzed by lord Roberts' masterly-  �� tactics.   They were too demoralized to heed his expostulations, and t  �� declared that the British cannon were everywhere." g  .-ZXXX-ti  iiximc  TTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT-  The war office has issued the following dispatch from lord Roberts:  "Clements has occiqned Norval's  Pont and the adjacent drifb.

His.scouts  ���are reporting that large numbers of  rebels in the neighborhood are  anxious to surrender."  great victory, since the enemy was  not punished and no great strategical advantage was gained. It  cannot be denied that the Boers  have pursued a wise course in defiance of the A*ery bad tactical and  and strategical advice of president  Kruger and president Steyn. From  the Biitish point of view it is a pity  that the advance was not followed  up, for in that case, lord Roberts  would probably have captured the  whole force."

Montreal, March 9,���-The  3000  Bird  lead,  min-  pro-  posal among some of the western  members of the Canadian Mining  Association to have the annual  mooting held permanently in Ottawa meets with strong opposition  from Montreal members, who contend that the argument that Ottawa is more central is not in accord with the facts. They declare  that the excellent train service to  Montreal makes the metropolis  more central.  A Famous Bridge.

BOER POWER IS COLLAPSING  No More Guns Wanted.  London, March  10���4.15 a. m.���  Sir Michael Hicks-Beach, chancellor  of the exchequer, when  explaining  to the bankers the terms of the new  loan, gave them an intimation that  the government considered the end  of the war near.    "Since the estimates   were   prepared,"   he    said,  "events have taken place that have  changed the situation, and probably  not all the money will be required."  Whatever the  government may  know or intend, unofficial  opinion -  seems to think that the Boer power  is collapsing.    The eighth  division  has been under orders to- embai k  for several weeks, but these order.-?,  so far as the artillery contingent ia  concerned, have been recalled, lord  Roberts having reported  that no  artillery from home is necessary.  This ds the .first pause in reinforcements since the war began.  Sir Redvers Buller, second in command in the field, and lord Wolseley  are understood alSo to cqpisider  that no more artillery is needed. >  Lord Roberts' has altogether GJ2  guns, including siege pieces.  Jfis quite clear that general Buller will not try anything  large in  the   future, as   he   is to lose sir  Charles   Warren   and  the  latter'*  10,000 men, who have been ordered  to join lord Roberts.    It is the expectation of the war office that lord  Roberts,  notwithstanding  th6  necessity of garrisoning his  depots,  will be able to operate a constantly.  increasing force,  so   that   by tho .  time    tho   Transvaal     frontier   is  -.reached he_will have-70,000-troops.  His telegrams dealing with nonessentials are taken  to moan  that  he is up  to some  mischief, as his  apparent   inactivity usually spells  uncommon activity.  Mafeking, as a beleaguered town,  attracts some Sentiment and sympathy. Nothing has- been heard  from there since February 19th.  There is a rumor this morning that  colonel Baden-Powell has- boon relieved r but this cannot be traced to  any reliable source.  Britain to be Supreme.  London, March 10.���The Standard, which is in closer touch with  the policy of the government than  any other ministerial organ, says:  "We have reason to believe that an  authoritative statement will shortly  be made by tho government reaffirming tho impossibility* of conceding any terms of peace to tho  Boer republics which would involve  a perpetuation of the political and  military independence that led to  the present costly and sanguinary  conflict."   Vidal Will Command.

Manitoba has a new sensation.  It is not a very pleasant one, however, and may be summed up as au  insinuation that none of the marriages which haA'e taken place in the  province, since the Macdonald government assumed power, are legal.  As might be supposed the report is  circulated by the political opponents  of premier Macdonald, with a view  to convincing the people that he is  a bungler.    As usual legal opinions  are trotted out to bolster up the  story.    It is shown that the statute  requires   marriago  licenses   to   be  signed by the minister of agriculture and immigration ; that no such  minister has yet been appointed;  that the provincial   treasurer has  been signing licenses; that therefore  thoy are not in accord x\ ith  the statute and that marriages presumed to be authorized by them are  illegal.

NELSON  Should Charles Wilson of Vancouver x>ersist in his   attempt to  force  party* lines in   the pending  provincial elections it can have but  one effect:   the   widening   of   the  breach   which   already exists  between the.Mainland and the Island  _   Conservatives, and the undoing of  much of thfi work  of organization  that has been carried on during the  past year.    It is easy to understand  the change of front of some Conservatives 'bince they in convention de-  * cided to make a bcraight Conservative   fight.   Thoy   were   not  then  confronted   with    tho    immediate  prospect of .1 oseph Martin for premier,   and   the    right-about    which  ���   many of them havo taken  may be  accounted for in the  changed  conditions which they meet upou what  most people consider the eve of an  election." Charles Wilson is not any  too firm in the saddle as leader of  .the Conservatives, and���in -view- of-  this it might be dangerous for him  to push the members of the  party  too far in a policy which is repugnant to them.    It is  not necessary  to go outside of  Vancouver to secure first-class evidence of open revolt from the resolution of the Conservative convention at New Westminster.    No loss than three of the  most prominent   Conservatives of  that city having expre^ed their determination    of    breaking    away.  They aio F. C. Cotton, tho leadei of  the late  Semlin   party, Charles   I'].  Tisdall and  mayor  Garden, whoso  popukuity  with   the party  is not  second to that of the  present leader.    In addition to  these  may  be  added every Conservative member  of the late government party.    Be-  fore they can be whipped into lino  the tail will have to wag the dog.  Kootenay   Coffee   Co.

Cool,    daring,   resourceful    ancl  possessed of a wonderful power of  self-restraint, lord Kitchener is the  very maii for the position he fills in  South Africa.   He is not the soldiers'  idol  that  lord  Roberts,  his. great  chief, is,  because Kitchener never  spares    his   men;   nor,    for   that  ��� matter,    does   he    spare    himself.  Once a project is afoot, oucc a goal  is to be readied, 'Kitchener means  to  get  there.   -It is'.hardly to be  wondered  at that a  man of this  hard, cold, calculating disposition is  not loved; and "Tommy" will never  make a pet of lord Kitchener.    But  he admires him and phices implicit  faith  in his judgment, and avouIcI  follow him wherever he chose to go.  And what more would a commander  have?    Every  soldier hopes for a  'chance,'  and many hope in  vain.  Kitchener's   chance  came in 1SS2,  when  the rising tide of Mahdism  threatened  to sweep from  end to  end of the Soudan.    But it was expected that the false prophet's successes were being exaggerated, and  young Kitchener was  deputed  to  make   investigations    and   report.  He  dressed   himself   as   an   Arab  trader and entered Omdurman, taking his life in his hands.    He went  among   the    wild   Kababish    and  treacherous pashas,.'who, had they  ouce penetrated his disguise, would  havo shown him little mercy.    One  day he witnessed the execution of a  supposed-spy  in  the  town.     The  poor wretch was subjected to such ���  torture  that Kitchener procured" a  tiny ��� phial of cyanide of potassium,  I,  which he concealed about his person.  'As'ho subsequently remarked Lo a  bi other pHiccr:    "Death  at   thqir  ha*ute f did nob fear: iu fact/I ox -  } ectud it.   J3utMich Mvdt'athf    For  two  3'ears  Kitchener lived  under  these   conditions,   never   knowing  when lie might be brought face to  face with a violent death; but all  tho  while   communicating  to   the  heads of the Egyptian intelligence  department information of the utmost    importance    regarding   the  Mahdi   aiid   his   movements.     So  strictly was his identity preserved  that the British troops did not know  him,   and   a 'Tommy'  on  one  occasion flung a brickbat at the brave  young oflieer, whom he mistook for  a 'blooming negro.'    The blow inflicted a rather nasty scalp wound,  and  had  the  additional  result of  creating   a .-.-.proverb:      'Throw   a  brick at a negro and you'll hit the  Sirdar.'.   Adventures  by the score  happened to Kitchener in the excit-  iug role of detective of spies.   On  one occasion two suspected Arabs  were brought into the British camp  and   confined in   the   guard, tent.  Shortly'afterward they were joined  by a third.    The trio held an animated conversation for some minutes, aud then, much to the .astonishment of the sentry,  the latest  arrival stepped forward and said in  indisputable English:    "All  right,  sentry;  I'm going to the general."

Then he  said : "Ah, I am glad." Lord Kitchener does not claim to be a ladies'  man. Such then is lord Roberts'  right hand man iu the present campaign. The subjugation of the  Boers will afford lord Kitchener  ample scope for the exercise of those  sterling qualities which he possesses  in such an eminent degree.

Perhaps the most striking trait in  lord  Kitchener's   character is   his  disinclination to put a married man  in a position of responsibility under  him.    He appears to hold the opinion that matrimony interferes with  busiuess.    He backs up'his precept  by   example,   for,    as   everybody  knows, lord Kitchener is a bachelor.  Like many a notable, personage before him, lie does not shine in the  society of ladies.    It is related"that  on one occasion he was presented to  a  certain'well-known  countess  of  Cairo, and evened the conveisation  by,asking:    "Do you   find   Cairo  nice at  this:  season of the year?"
