 DAILY  EDITION   BY   MAIL  FIVE  DOLLARS A YEAR  WEEKLY EDITION  BY MAIL  TWO  DOLLARS A YEAR  EIGHTH YEAR.  NELSON:  MONDAY J\|9RNING, MARCH 19 1900.  PRICE FIVE  CENTS.  ARE ON QUARTER RATIONS  Natives Getting Angry.  Lorknzo Maiujuk>5, March 18.���  A despatch from Mafeking dated  Saturday, March 10th, says: "The  garrison is holding its own. AVe  have heard numerous rumors that  the siege will be raised, but so far  that is nob the case. We are pegging away on quarter rations  patiently supplemented by the occasional capture of cattle. Our  home-made gun erratically bombards the Boer trenches.  Rumors   are   current   that   the  Boers are in dieting nameless  tortures on  captured native runners.  (<-     These may not bo true,  but  they  :F are    tending    to    inflame    native  f-   passions to such au extent  that it  may soon be impossible to hold the  natives in check, owing to the Boers  "-���having deliberately bombarded the  .    native   staadt,    which   is   full   of  women     and     children.      Colonel  Baden-Powell has armed the natives,  ���;. . but he Las only allowed  them to  . act on the defensive, although they  ' ;  have clamored to be allowed to go  out and attack at the point of the  assegai.    They will be prevented as  .     long   as,, possible   from   inflicting  .;',... reprisals.on.the Boers."  EVERYTHING W0fMC WELL  In South Africa.  JjONdon,   March  19���4:30  a.m.���  ; The news from South Africa today  is highly satisfactory to the British  public. The relief of Mafeking is  not yet announced, but it is extremely probably that  this  is  al-  ��� ready accomplished by colonel  Plumer's advance. Lady Charles  Bentinek at Cape Town has received  a telegram from her husband in  'Mafeking, dated March 12fch, saying  . he expected to join her shottly.  The actual relief movements have  not been publicly -developed in detail, but it seems that loid Methuen  only started very recently, and is  rather engaged in dispensing the  Boeis of the district, than acting  for Mafeking1s actual relief. Colonel  Peckman has dispersed 500 Boers at  Fourteen Streams.  Loid llobeils probably ascertained from Mr. Fraser, the new  mayor of Bloemfontein, befoie despatch! nggeneral Pole-Carew soiith-  -waid..that, in all.likelihood.tlie.rail-  ���u ny was clear.

PATRICK'S DAY IN AFRICA  Kipling's Latest.  Cape Towx, March 18. ���' St.  Patrick's day was celebrated with  extraordinary enthusiasm throughout South Africa. In reply to a  message from the Irishmen of Cape  Town the queen sent the following:  "I have always felt confident  that the spirit, courage and allegiance which have distinguished the  Irish soldiers in the face of the  enemy would be shared by their  brethren in the colony, in support  of tho authority of my government."  On the initiative of lord Roberts  a newspaper has been started at  Bloemfontein for the education of  the troops. Rudyard Kipling contributed to the inaugural edition  yesterday the following lines :  "O Terence dcur, and did you hear  'Tbe news thiit'it going-round  Tlio Shamrock's Erin's badge by law,        ���  AVhoro'er her sons aro found.

The information   obtained from  some of the delegates from  Rossland who attended the Conservative  convention would make interesting  reading   were   it   only .published.  The information was not of politics,  but regarding the  management  of  the three big mines in that camp.  The information was in effect  that  the   eight-hour  law   had   nothing  whatever to do with the situation  there.    But,  instead, the  situation  was dheccly the result of gross mismanagement, in the War Eagle and  Center Star particularly/ At the  Le Roi much of the trouble has resulted fiom   the  incompetency of  Cailylo, yvho is now wiifciug  letters  from   Spain   making   comparisons  between   Spanish    and    Canadian  miners.      Catlyie   is   roundly   denounced   as an incompetent" mine  manager and snob.  J. Fred Hume, ex-minister of  mines, has announced his intentiou  of building himself a residence in  Nelson.  It. F. Green of Kaslo was in Nelson on Saturday. lie said he would  again be a candidate for member of  the legislature from Sloeau riding.  If he makes the race, he will be  elected.  The force at the Ymir mine is being reduced, as the addition to the  mill has been completed, although  the machinery has not been installed. It is said that changes are  likely to be made in tiie management at the mine before long.  Tho wage scale at the Athabasca^  "has been'raised.'sd-that-it is now  practically the same as that paid in  the Slocan. Why could this not  have been done without so mitch  hair splitting?  J|. ' Lonsdale Doupe, townsite  agent of the C. V. 11, is laying out  a townsite at Procter's Landing opposite Balfour. The now, town is  to be called Procter in honor of T.  G. Procter, the original owner, who  is, interested in the undertaking.  The location includes about 50 acres  and is admirably situated. ��� Sir.  Doupe has a \survoy party on' the  work, "and the first' parcel of lots,  SoO iu number,' will- be offered for  sale here ten days hence.   , *  The Young People's Society of  the First Baptist church will be at  home to their fi-iends tomorrow  evening at S o'clock. A service of  song will be followed by a social  hour, during which refreshments  will be served.  The Bank of Montreal has subscribed for $1,000,000 of the British  war loan, which draws 2'j per cent  interest'. The bank could have  loaned that million right here in  Nelson at twice the interest, but  then, that would not have been so  patriotic.  Miss  Murcutt,  provincial  organ-  Free State Pacified.  New York, March IS.���Isaac N.  Ford, London correspondent of tho  Tribune, cables the war conditions  at 1 a.m. as follows :   "The Orange  Free State is part of the queen's  dominions.     General   Gatacre has  occupied Springfontein and general  Pole-Carew   with the guards has  joined general Clements at Norvals  Pont.    The Free State commandoes  have disappeared in the south, and  their   guns   have   probably   been  buried or concealed.   No resistance  has   been   offered   to the  British  .columns  in   the  southern   district  and the burghers are everywhere  returning  to their homes.    There  are   many  press   dispatches from  Brabant's, Gatacre's and Clements'  columns,   but   there   is   only   one  story.   The Free State forces are  disbanding and the rebellion in the  Dutch districts of Cape  Colony is  at an end.  "Bloemfontein. is like a capital  which has been under siege and has  been relieved by a friendly army.  The British troops have been welcomed as allies, and not sullenly  as. _the enemy. The farmers are  supplying the .army with meat,  vegetables, milk and eggs, making  good bargains. "Bobs" is almost  as popular at Bloemfontein as he  would be in London. The Free  Staters are virtually out of the conflict.  "The advance of general Roberts'  army northward is now dependent  upon the establishment of a new  line of communications for supplies  from Norval's Pont, and this cannot  be deferred many days. Bridge  builders are at work at .Norval's  Pont and Bethulie and only a small  force will be required to guard the  line of communications.  "There is no definite information  respecting president Steyn's operations at Kioonstaadt, but it is  doubtful if he succeeds in rallying  his followers there. He will certainly fail to do this unless the  Boers cross the Vaal in force and  fortify Ventersburg lidge. They  are rumored to be entrenching on  the northern bank of the valley.  "The last stages of the campaign  promise to be short lived. The  military experts do not believe  that president Kruger will be able  to mass 10,000 men against lord  Roberts, and this will "leave  not more than five (thousand men  in front of general Buller. The relief of Blafeking will probably be  the next episode of the campaign.  The troops guarding the line of  communication south of Kiinbei ley  arc virtually released, and from  what ficsh reinforcements are landing at Cape Town there will be a  "strong column available for the deliverance of Baden-Powell. Secrecy  is maintained but the work is without doubt in progress.  "General Buller is reconnoitering  east and west of Ladysmith and is  in jboiieh. with the_enemy.   "The news is all of one color from  every quarter, and'it is khaki."  committee of; the board of trade  suggests that if the company can  be got to build the boat immediately and Kaslo could get the advantage of a day service from Kuskouook and also between Kaslo and  Duncan river points, the city might  do something in connection with  reducing the taxation of the company's property here.  TROUBLES IN PHILIPPINES  KILLED AT THE ENTERPRISE  A Miner the Victim.  SiiArBRTOX, March 17.���[Special  to The Tribune I;���An unfortunate  and fatal accident occurred this  morning at the .Enterprise mine on  Ten-mile creek whereby a man  named Kennedy lost his life through  a missed hole. ��� He is said to be  from Vancouver, with relatives  living in the east! There being no  coroner in the-i.district,'provincial  officer Black of New Denver went  down on tonight's boat to^ascertain  particulars on behalf of the attorney-general's .department. Charles  Baker, undertaker of New Denver,  accompanied him-to take charge of  the body.   -     .,'���';,  "POLITICAL pointers.  The;late Conservative convention  was hot without,' it's amusing inei-  dent8.^;Dr.;rB6we8^of Rossland made  a forcible  speech^pn  a resolution  which he moved himself which declared for "short hours'- and  good  wages," then the . convention adjourned for dingier.   On reassembling lawyer Elliot addressed "the  jury" against tlieshort-hours-and-  good-wages resolution, when  somebody who was in the secret shouted,  "Read the resolution  again."    The  resolution was read again, when it  was  discovered  that ib  had  been  changed   to   one    of   meaningless  phrases.    Lawyer Elliot sat down  delighted and Dr. Bowes appeared  disgusted.     "Jack"       Kirkpatrick  looked over at "Jalcie">Dover, smiled,  and replied, "We are doing business."  The men wh d' do'uot '"agree wi th  the genial old gentleman whom Hugh  Sutherland has hhed to edit the  pi'gan of the mine owners are to be  driven across the boundary line or  into the sea. The province will be  depopulated.   There is a three-cornered fight on  at Rossland for the Conservative  nomination. Dr. Bow es is an out-  and-out eight-hour man; mayor  Goodeve is an eight hour man to  the miner, an opponent of the eight-  hour law to the mine owner, and a  sttaddler to the business man; Alexander Dick is a practical politician.  If the nomination is made at amass  meeting, Bowes would sway the  crowd with his oiatory and get  there; bnt if the nomination is  made in a convention, Goodeve  would win, and Dick would be the  chairman of his campaign com  mittee.  Breaking Out Again.  Manila,   Match 18���9:30  p.m.���  General Otis  considers Manila tho  most   troublesome   center   in   the  situation today.     The insurgents  Junta here in conjunction with that  in Hong Kong  is  growing  active.  The military authorities have been  forced to .put a stop to Mabini's  intercourse with the public.    The  local and foreign press consider his  recent utterances calculated to incite the  Filipinos  to  a  continued  revolt and as prejudicial to American    control.      Flores,    who    has  just      arrived      here      says,     he  come      trusting      to      American  leniency   and  that  he woiild  not  have dared to come' to Manila if  Spain were yet.in control.   Louis  Spitzoll, head of the firm of Louis  Spitzell & Company, contractors to  the Chinese government, aud himself   a   suspected   filibuster,   came  from   Hong  Kong to  Manila   last  week and was temporarily detained  in custody on suspicion.  It is asserted on good authority  that three loads of arms and ammunition have recently been landed  on the east coast of Luzon; Captain  Taylor of the 89 th regiment recently captured 12 ne'w mausers -near  Calamba. It is reported that the  rebels are now organizing in the  province-'of Rambalee under Mas-  cardo.    ���'���,-'��� ;  '.'' ���'���.  Brigands are committing atrocities in the province of Nueva Reiga,  where they have murdered twenty  natives and 'Chinamen. Eight  other murders have been committed near Tarlac. The Nueva Reiga  insurgents aro heavily taxing loyal  traders and farmers, with the result that business is paralyzed aud  there is a general scarcity of food.  Tho funds for maintaining this  guerrilla waif are are collected from  the various towns of the island,  ���w hether occupied by the Americans  or not, even including Manila.  The'piesidentb of several towns  in Lepanto andthevtJnion provinces  have declined to continue* in their  positions saying that they do" not  desii'c further identification with  the Americans'. Spaniaids and  Filipinos who are oonveisant with  the Tagalog character unite in asserting that Aguinaldo's capture  ..would terminate the revolution.

The Russian  embassy insibts upon   Llie  otiginal  demands which  the Tiukish miii-  taiy   commission   strenuously   opposes.    The Si.   I'esotsburg correspondent of the  Neiieste  Nachnoh-  ten says:  "Russia, alfcliough tacitly^  "encouraging"the champions of Bulgarian independence,, does not consider the time  propitious  for any  action.    She hopes  to  bring  pressure to bear upon  Turkey^in the  railway questions,,but if she fail to  secure the required concessions, important events may   be expected in  the Balkans.

York, March   18.���In   his  cable review of the St.  Patrick's  day demonstration in  London, the  rejoicinjg over the hopeful aspect of  the South African war and his discussion of the bearing of late events  upon   the political and diplomatic  situations,   Issac   N. Ford- in  the  London   cable   to   this   morning's  Tribune, says : "John Bull having  eaten leeks and bitter herbs is now  iu the   promised  land feeding on  milk   and honey.     He   enjoys  his  triumph and resumes  his  natural  attitude   of  supreme  contentment  with his relations the human  race.  The pax britannica has been established at Bloemfontein and in due  course will be extended to Pretoria.  The queen is.:.the wisest and  most  gracious of sovereigns, and she has  accepted St. Patrick as her patron  saint    for     one      day    in     the  year. Roberts is the greatest general  living,      Kitchener      the      most  energetic of military organizers and  Tommy Atkins the best soldier in  tiie   world.   Lord' Salisbury is a  masterful; statesman who has commanded the neutrality of the continent, has summed up the history  of the war with presidents Kruger  and Steyn, and has proudly proclaimed that England does not pro-.,  pose to accept the  intervention  of  any power in  South Africa.    Now  that he has passed out of the valley of the  Shadow of' Death and  reached the crests of the Delectable  Mountains   which are not kopjes  bristling with rifles, John Bull looks  out upon a. united empire and<is  highly pleased with himself and his  surroundings.  "This good humor has colored  the comments of the English,press  upon the action of the 'United  States"in-taking notice of the despairing appeals of the Dutch presidents to neutral powers to assist  them in making peace. The friendly tone of secretary Ha5rs* dispatch  has been recognized, and there is no  bitterness in the icfiection that  England did not embarrass the  United States with*equally friendly-  overtures at the close of the war  with Spain.       ,  " Some mild references are made  to the political mo ti yes of presiden t  McKiniey in taking up piesident  Kruger's appeal when the European  powers were too wary and cautious  to do po, but these expressions are  not unkind to America.  "The queen has exerted  a strong  influence, in brief, about this cordial  acknowledgement of  English    obligations  to liish  valor and  fortitude, and the prince and the  princess of Wales have supported  her  by opening the Irish exhibition yesterday and honored Ireland at least  -for-one day-even-inthe metropolis^  where Gladstone was lampooned for  his home rule policy."  - He pays a graceful tribute to the  Irish generals and the Irish troops  serving in the  South African   war,  in  which  he  says, " the shamrock/  will be worn with sincerity or from  respect to'the queen's example.    It  is   certain    that   the    laurels   belong     to     the      Irish      generals  Roberts-,      French,      White     and  Kelly-Jvcnny are Irishmen by birth  or parentage, and even  Kitchener  was-born in Ireland., These are the  generals who have done' the best  work in the war.    The only  liish-  niaii   who   has   failed" to  make  a  reputation ih Clery.     Fifteen-Irish  infantry and  several1 cavalry regiments have been in service during  the war and  their gallantry  has  earned .-the fine tribute paid  today  throughout England in'the marked  observance of St. Patrick's day.    '-  Immense quantities of Shamrock  have been sent over from Ireland  and the green is worn generally today in Piccadilly, Pall Mall and- the  Strand. Thtore are also unusual displays of bunting in London. Royal  Windsor is  having an  Irish  gala  day and Dunne,  the little trumpeter,  is   the  hero  of   Portsmouth,  where    the   Dublin   Fusileers   are  holding high holiday.  BURGHERS GIVING UP ARMS  Despatch From Roberts.  London, March 18. ��� The war  office has received the following  dispatch from field marshal Roberts,  dated Bloemfontein, Sunday 18.���  "The Guards brigade returned yesterday from Norvals. Several  burghers have laid down their arms  to general Pole-Carew at Edinburgh  and elsewhere.  The officer commanding at Belmont reports that some deserters  have come iii������ with a maxim nine^  pounder, and another nine pounder  has beeii brought into Colesberg.  The   cavalry    brigade   has    gone,  to   Thahabanu    in   order    to   re-   *.  assure    the    inhabitants    of   the -  district and to distribute copies of  the proclamation to the people of  the Free State.    Tho proclamations  are   being   eagerly   sought   after.  Lord Methuen reached Warrenton  on March 10th." He was in time to  prevent the bridge from being completely destroyed and to. secure the  pont on the Vaal.  The English mail was dispatched  from here by rail yesterday and tomorrow, the regular mail service ���  with Cape Town will be reopened.  Mafeking reports that all was well  on March Oth. '  THE SMELTER MAY RESUME  Toronto Men Want It.  There are several rumors current  to the effect that the Hall Mines  smelter will shortly be in operation  .again as a purely customs smelter.  From what may be regarded as excellent   authority,    The   Tuihune  learns that Messrs. Gooderham and  Blaekstock, the Toronto^ capitalists  who  are    interested   in   the War  Eagle and' Center Star companies,  have started themselves for Lon-  don for the purpose of  acquit ing ,  the smelter.   It is generally conceded  that,  in * view  of the condition of the Hall Mines, Limited, the  mission  of the two   Toronto  capitalists   will   be    successful.    This,  cannot but be regarded as wcleomj  news to the people  of  Nelson and  probably accounts for the present  .visit of SI. E. Croasdaile to London.  Should the Toionto men .secure the  smelter they would be able to operate it to much  better advantage  than could the Hall  Mines, owing  to the steady supply of ore  which  they could receive fiom  their own  mines in Rossland.    At present all  of this ore is treated in  the Canadian   Pacific   Raihvay    Company's  smelter at Trail and the  switching  of it to Nelson for treatment would  probably work a genuine commencement in the recognition  of NelsJon  as   the   chief  smelting   point   for   '  Southern Kootenay.

ABERDEEN BLOCK  Don't Smoke a Cheap Pipe  us  :magS��^a.  See   THURMAN, Tobaeeonist.  Tub    Conservative    convention,  which met in Nelson on   Friday,  dealt with two matters relating to  mining.    The one, dealing with the  taxation upon mines, more closely  affected    the    mine    oAvncrs;  the  second was the eight-hour law, to  maintain which the working miners  have been straining every energy.  The Conservative party is  openly  pledged    to   the   eight-hour   law;  it is not openly   pledged  to the  mine-owners,     Jn   view   of    this  the    working    miners   had *evcry  reason   to~   expect,  some   consideration ;     but    what -   did     they  receive?     The   delegates    of   the  pledged party wrangled for several  hours over the measure of recognition which they would give the  working miners and then* disposed  of the matter by .saying that it  " dept ecates disputes between labor  " and capital, and that it will be the  " function of government to< earo-  " fully investigate tho working of  " the laws dealing with the indus-  " trial conditions."    It may therefore be fairly said that tbe Conservative party fell down on thecight-  * hour law, theifesuo which the working ' miners    had   most  at   heart.  Notice how differently they handled  the interests of the   mine-owners  with respect to taxation.   Not only  do they note that they have a claim  -wortliyof consideration;- but~they_  even  go tho length of suggesting  the remedy.    They advocate an important departure in the system of  mining   taxation.     They   suggest  that instead of taxing the net value  of the output, the tax should  be  shifted so as to fall upon nothing  but the net income of the companies  irrespective  of   the value   of   tho  property or the amount of money  invested.    The Conservative (party  was  not   openly   pledged   to   the  mine-owners,  bnt   the   manner in  which they dealt with their alleged  grievance, and   turned  down   the  cause of tho  mine-workers,  shows  that their sympathies are with the  mine-owners and not tho miners.  bers, it. is not entitled to the confidence of the electors.    It is idle for  the Conservative party of Kootenay  to attempt to ride both horses in  the   eight-hour   controversy.    The  eight-hour  law   is   either  a   good  or   a bad   thing.   The   people   of  Kootenay want men who have sufficient courage to take a stand upon  the question.    It would have been  bad  enough if the Kootenay Conservatives had come out openly and  championed the cause of the > mine-  owners.   Then they could at least  be credited with some courage; but  as  matters stand they are before  the people as a body of men who  either  lack the judgment to pass  upon the merits of an issue, or- the  courage-to take a stand once their  judgment has been arrived at.   It  matters little to the electors which  is the cafe. ,   Tine organ of' the mine owners is  much put out because the Irish Hag  did not float above the city offices  on St. Patrick's day. The city does  not happen td have an Irish flag, or  a Scotch flag, or an English flag.  But this will not appear as a reasonable excuse to a paper that'is lack-  ing in reason.   ' Hon. Smith Curtis, premier  Martin's minister of mines, has an  interview in the Rossland Miner in  which he intimates, that if premier  Martin is retained as his honor's  chief adviser, the general elections  end of  He  estimated that the output of the  gold diggings of that district this  year will exceed the value of $25,-  000,000 ; but the chances are that  the man who made the estimate has  mining claims to sell to anyone who  wishes to speculate.  Nelson's Vice Consul.  William Power Kenibbs, of Boston, who has been appointed consular  agent in this city is now iu  Vancouver,   the   guest  of   United  States consul Dudley.    Mr. Kenibbfi,  who  is a  young man  of 21 or  25  years of age, has already considerable distinguished himself.    In 1895  he went to Cuba and served for live  months in the insurgent army, and  found himself finally in Morro castle,  from which ho  was eventually  released through   the  good offices  of  consul-general Fitx.hugh Lee.    Mr.  Kenibbs was a singer by profession,  and at the outbreak of the Spanish  war he was singing at ono of the  opera companies iu Boston and also  acting  as   musical    and   dramatic  critic  for   the   Boston  Globe.     As  soon   as   war   was    declared, , Mr.  Kenibbs, then a member of a militia  organization, withdrew from that  and  enlisted   as a private in  the  regular army,  7th   U. S. Infantry.  His regiment was one of those that  accompanied    general    Shafter   to  Cuba, and in the fight at ElCaney,Mr.  Kenibbs was wounded seven times.  One    bullet   passed    through   his  throat, thereby destroying  his profession of a public singer.     During  the last year aud a half he has been  delivering a lecture upon the Spanish war, illustrated with  stereopti-  con   views,  which  is  very   highly  spoken of in the press in the United  States.   After a feAv days in Vancouver, during which ho  will be instructed by consul Dudley and vice-  consul Schofield, in  relation to  his  duties, he will proceed to this city  and establish his office.

INCORPORATED 1670.  Seville  Tiik Conservatives of Kootenay  have endorsed Charles Wilson of  Vancouver as the leader of the  provincial Conservatives, but they  refused to affirm the eight-hour  plank in the Wilson platform. The  only logical deduction which eiin be  l< \ made from this is that the Koote-  "\ nay Conservative's  do  nob regard  as sincere  their leader's advocacy  of the eight-hour law.    Jn this the  great majority of the electors will  i agree with them.  When   a   political party   is   so  divided  upon the  chief Lssuo in a  campaign, that it dare not publish j  the convention speeches ��fits mem- I  " Wu will never have good gov-  ment until we adopt party lines,"  ih tho cry of the party-line men. If  this is true, why is it that the government of   Ontario   has been .so  bad for a quarter of a century ?   Tt  has been bad, for have not such  good Conservatives as Meredith and  .Whitney so declared for years. The  government   of   Quebec   ha.s been  disgraceful at times, or the party  leaders have been untruthful.   The  government of Manitoba has been  bad, or Hugh John Macdonald would  not now be in office.     Yet all three  provinces have  been  governed ou  party lines.  If the above are statements of facts, what would likely  be the result in this province were  party  lines  adopted?    The party  that    gained    power     would    be  denounced as  tin fib to govern by  the party that failed iu securing  office, just as the Turner crowd has  denounced the Semlin crowd. Party  docs not make men either capable  or lion est, in or out of office.  World Wide Paragraphs.

T came where , the   Coldstrcnms  were hit the hardest, writes Charles  Shaw in   The   Toronto   Telegram.  There was a cluster of 20 or 00 dead  aud wounded.     "Look '  ere,   sir,"'  yelled a Coldstream,  bending over  a comrade, as I was hurrying forward, for the shots were  flying a  little hot.   The man was hard hit  in two places 'on   one   leg.    "Wot  d'ye think a' that?"   J didn't think  anything, except to  be sorry  for  the poor  beggar, who  never said  anything   more  than,  "I   wonder,  Townie,  wot   the   little   girl   will  think of me 'opping round on one  leg."     "Think,"   _auswered _ the  "townsman, '"Think7"Godsakes,  man.  it's> ashillin' a day pension for life."  -And as the blood, which couldn't be  btaunched,  gushed forth   anew,   1  wondered if the women of England,  yes, and'Canada, knew what Avar,  which   thoy   deemed   so   glorious,  really meant.    Six feet of manhood  going back on one leg to the little  girl in far off Kngland who was his  only thought Avhile bullets whistled  over him and the pain of his wounds  wrenched his eoul.

"A field cornet, after I had pointed   out   that   delay   in   removing  wounded men was a A'ery serious  matter, allowed the removal of the  Avounded in our immediate neighborhood.    A clerically-dressed Boer,  avIio said he was secretary to general Botha, then came up aud asked  me to go and speak Avith the general,  who Avas ou horseback at a short  distance.    In polite terms the general asked me Avho had given leaAro  for the removal of the avouu ded.    I  told him.    The general, then  said  that he was' in supreme command,  and that he had giA'en no permission.  'Besides,' he went on to say,''there  are several  reasons Avhy I should  not allow you to carry tnvay your  wounded, aiid bury your dead.    Wc  .are how in possession here.    I have  had    no  official   application made  either'to remove the Avounded or to  bury the dead.    I haA'e tilso to complain that a letter has been sent in  by    your   senior    medical   officer,  saying that avc do not alloAv your  pounded to be taken to your hospitals. t Such charges should nol/be  ���made.   They will embitter this conflict.    We wish nothing more than  iliat   after eveiy ' engagement   all  should be earned on in a, christian  Avay, but tliero mint bo^rcciproeity.  What can you pay to your keeping  general Jvock till ho, died in your  . hands ?   Again, Avhat has been the  behaviour of lord  Methuen ?     He  took four of my doctors prisoners  and my ambulance aud sent them  to Cape Town.    The four doctors ho  has since sent back, but the ambulances ho has kept.   Ib   that a  christian, or ovon a humane xvny of  acting ?     There is   general   Kpke-  >vieh.    Jle  has refused tiny longer  ��� to recognize the Ucileva Cross Avhen  mod by us.    Only the other day at  Acton Holmes you took   twenty-  three or twenty-five of our avouikI-  ed as prisoners.   Js all this to go  on ?   Now you Avaut mo to give up  all your wounded.' "  After the writer of the report  had    replied    explaining    certain  * points raised by the general, the  fatter gaA'e the permission desired,  and then said:   "Take bhiK mossagc~to your"gen~  oral. Tell him wo want to fight out  this quarrel in a christian way ; that  ib should bo clearly understood between us Avhat is to be done after a  fight and during the war. But  there must be reciprocity���there  must be reciprocity. Ask him to  .send Dion list of those of our people  who 'are in his hands. Theii' relations and friends want to knoAV  Whether they aro &Iivc oi' dead. I  myxclf will givo, at ajl Ihutw, the  fullest Information of those avo have  belonging  to you.   That he, may  , (iount upon. As ] give up your  wounded, ho should give up ours.  You   can   uoav   carry   away   the  ��� wounded and bury tho dead. There  are also hix. Avounded avIio are prisoners iu my hospital down there.  They can also bo taken away, or I  will give an order that one of our  jtnibulauceis convey them to nny  places decided, on by your medical  authorities, There is with us in  hospital a wounded superior officer.  He is'nob to be removpcl. J Avill  decide about him later on." Aftey  shaking hands AA'ith the general aud  Ms eecretary, and thanking the  former for the permission he had  granted, I withdrew.  The writer then resumes:  ''I venture to think ib a matter of  considerable importance to draAv  intention to the attitude of the  JJoers Avhom we met during tho  carrying; out of our duties on thesp  three days. There was a sadness,  iUmosb anguish, in ihe way in which  they referred to our fallen boldiprs.

What a sight!'    'I Avish politicians  could see their handiwork.'    'What  can  God   in  heaven think  of  this  sight?'    'What a cursed war, that  brings these poor fellows to such an  end!'     'Wc  hate  this   Avar.    This  A\'ar is accursed.    Every day on our  knees  Ave  all  pray that God  will  bring this AA'tir to au end.'    'It is  not  our AA'ar;. ib  is  a  Avar of the  millionares.     What   enmity   have  haA'e avc Avith these poor fellows?'  'Would that Chamberlain, Rhodes,  and .the millionares could see these  trenches and graves.'    'When will  this unjust AA'ar end T    'We hate all  Avar.   We arc men of peace.    We  want to go back to our homes aiid  farms,   to sow  our seed aud reap  out" fields, and  not to  make war.  Good God !    Wheu AA'ill it end ?' "  I do not hesittite to say that in  the three days I spoke Avith some  hundreds standing around us in  groups of from ten to twenty.  Apart from ; several foreigners,  chiefly SAviss aud Italians, the Boers  seemed to me to belong tor; the  farmer class, some dressed like English gentleman-fanners, and others,  Avho formed the majority, less well  dressed ; but with no signs of rag-;  gedncss about them, and with  scarcely any evidences of the wear  and tear of this campaign.

Wines and spirits on an English  man-of-warare laid in by the officers at their own cost. The quantity, howeA'er, is limited by the  Avauts of each mess. The orders to  the wine merchant must be . vised  by the captain, and he is supposed  to keep a careful eye on the  amount consumed. The officers no  longer receiA'O rations of rum,-but a  small allowance in money1 instead.  Nor is it issued to seamen under 20  years of age.1 " ������>'_"'  Before being scr\red out to-the  cr<*Av it is again diluted in the proportion of one part of rum to three  parts of water.

An occasional shot AA'as scut by a flying  Bocr_from_a-kopje a- feAV -hundred  3'ards in  the rear, and  I  reclined  quietly and uuoblnibively behind a  boulder.    You  see I AA'as tired and  there was a nico friendly   shade on  that   side   of   the   rock.   .Tommy  didn't. If is eyes were glistening and  ho AA'as looking for pot shots tit flying   Boers.   J   like   Tommy,    God  knoAA's that f have reasons to, but  his contempt for bullets is something   that 1   can nob admire.     It  sIioavs a  lack of intelligence.     If  there is any tiling 1 havo respect for  it is a flfiiiiser bullet with a, business move on.    It shouldn't bo  interfered with, btifc Tommy is such  an    "absent-minded,   begger."     A  chance shot went through tho helmet of tho fourth man from me and  he   bad'  the effrontory, the   cool,  calm effrontery to take it off, look  at it for a few seconds arid cheerfully quote the -.London,   popular  song, "Only a little bit off the top."

The new wing consists  of three comfortable rooms in wliich  five beds will be placed for the accommodation of the firemen who  sleep iu the building. The large  apartment now used as a sleeping  room is to be partitioned iuto an  office for the chief aud sleeping  quarters for himself aud the driver.  The other large room is to be used'  as a sitting and recreation room for  the'members of the brigade.  Nurse Hearle, who is at the detention hospital, is recovering nicely from her attack of chicken pox.  She will be quarantined in the  building for a couple of weeks.  Clayton, the small pox patient, is  practically well, though a couple of  spots not wholly healed, necessitate  his being quarantined for some  time yet.  Thorpe & Co., Limited, received a  shipment of bottles on Saturday.  The carload contained 10,000 bottles.  G. Lt. Lennox has purchased two  lots, 50 feet frontage, on Mill street  in block 4.4. from Walter Askew.  Mr. Lennox will build a residence on  the property.  A heavy slide occurred on Saturday night a short distance east of  Farron on the Columbia & Western. Several hours delay ensued  and the train ou the Rossland  branch was not held at Robson.  The Boundary passengers came  through to Robson and were given  staterooms aboard a steamer lying  at the dock there. Yesterday* a  train was sent out from Nelson to  bring them in.  Mrs.. G. W. Fairweather gave  birth to a son on Sunday. Both  are doing well.  Twelve men came down from the  Athabasca on Saturday. Tho Granite aud Poorman are shut down entirely. The labor trouble presents  no new'aspectst,  Hedley Sinclair, the engineer of  theXmir who' was badly scalded  last week is "improving, though  slowly. He suffers great pain at  times, and it is doubtful if ho ^will  be able to leave the hospital under  two months. The resident physician, Dr. Rose, states a that skin-  grafting operation may be necessary to make good some of" the  cuticles which was most severely  scalded. ^ >-  The late St. L. Brown, who was  fatally scalded aboard the tug  Ymir carried a life insurance of  $2000 in the Independent Foresters.  The documents necessary to secure  the payment of the policy have already been forwarded to the officials of Court Sherwood Forest in  Toronto to which deceased belonged  from where they go to the permanent officials who issue the check.  Above Pive'iiiile-poiutTtlicThand  of the railroad, builder is in evidence  on the north bank of the lake.  Hundreds of fires have been started  to burn timber on the right of way  and the smoke from these overhanging the lake in a dense cloud.  At Nine-mile, where John McMartin makes his headquarters blasts  are fired every few minutes. A  little town has sprung up at this  point, a telegraph office being  among the conveniences at tlio disposal of the residents.,  Tho fishing season is in full swing,  but up to iho present time fishermen have been more plentiful than  catches. On Saturday and Sunday  various parties were on tho lake,  the rapida being a favored distiiet.  The trout are not taking flies to  any extent yet but will attack bait  if it is of the right kind. On Saturday several fine trout were taken  off the city whatf with a fly.  Within a short time Cedar street  will blossom out as a residential  street, At the present time four  houses are being under way, and  Other lots have been disposed of to  parties who are desirous of building  during the present season. The  public works committee of the city  council has under consideration  certain improvements- to the street.  William Gooding comes before  police magistrate Crease this morning charged with the theft of  $15.00. It is alleged that when delivering goods for the Nelson Soda  Water factory Gooding collected  tlm amount iu question and ap- j  propriated it to his own use. He  has already pleaded guilty to a  charge of forgery, aud sentence was  deferred until this last charge is investigated.  Enthusiastic' cyclists who have  had their wheels out during the  last few days are wondering what  happened to the cycle path. Last  fall and during the winter the path  was used by teamsters, who quite  deserted the ordinary roadway,  with the result that the path has  vanished and a succession of deep  ruts occupies its place. Unless some  measure of protection can be  secured, the cyclists say it is useless  to spend more funds on tho cycle  path.  A. Lome Becher, a Rossland mining broker and at one time a resident of Nelson, has been ill with  smallpox and has been removed to  the pest house at Rossland.  The William Hunter Company,  Limited, recently disposed of its  mercantile interests at Phoenix, in  Boundary district.,.. The purchaser  was Michael McBean of Toronto.   ���  Owing to the closing down of the  three chief mines in the Rossland  camp, the miners for the past ten  days are said to have been leaving  that town at the rate of 35 a day.  Most of them arc going to the Montana, Idaho and Colorado camps,  while some are heading for other  centres of mining activity in this  province.  _  Over $70,000 in deposits were  withdrawn from the banks of Rossland in one day last week by miners  quitting that camp. But then this  exodus of men and money was offset by ' the transference of two  saloon licenses from Canadians to  Italians. This means, as a Rossland  man expresses, it, that "Columbia  avenue will soon be a street made  up of dagoes and other low-grade  foreigners."  Since the Gtli instant the level of  the lake has risen 15 inches. The  rise on Saturday was two inches.  These figures are obtained from a  thoroughly reliable source.  The rehearsals for the dramatic  entertainment being got up by E. P.  Whalley are * proceeding satisfactorily, and the various actors are  acquitting themselves exceedingly  ���well. W. H. Dowsing will also give  au exhibition of conjuring and  sleight of hand. The entertainment will be i given at the opera  house one day next week.   '  Captain Campbell of the Angerona  now owns a deer. On his Saturday  trip he saw the animal swimming  across the narrows, and, after backing aud tacking his little steamer  during nearly an * hour's chase, he  succeeded in roping the animal.  Captain Campbell says he intends'  to try and tame it.  The St. Patrick's day concert in  the opera house on Saturday in aid  of the building fund of the Roman  Catholic church was a great success,  ancl nearly all the leading local  amateurs took part. The instrumental part was furnished by Mill-  ward's orchestra.  According to a promise made last  year by Dr. Doolittle, a block of  stock in the Nelson Coke & Gas  Company, Limited, is offered to  citizens of -Nelson in today's issue.  As the works are now in operation,  citizens have an opportunity to investigate the merits of the business.  M. Lisbet Leon of Paris is  registered at the Phair. He is hez-e  to inspect tho Whitewater ~mine~on  Rover creek on behalf of some of  the Parisian stockholders in that  property. His stay in this country  will be very brief.  Between 150 and 175 members of  the Ymir Miners' Union are at work  in the neighborhood of that town  at the old scale of wages, namely,  $3 a clay for muckers and $3.50 a  day for miners. Yet never a word  of complaint is heard from the mine  owners employing them. All the  complaints come from the mine  owners who are employing the  $2.50 and $3 men.  Mrs. R, L. Brown, whoso husband  met his death by an* accident on  the tug Ymir, returns thanks to  the friends and members of the  fraternal societies who did the family so many acts of kindness during  her husband's short illness aud since  his death.  The members of the Ymir minez's'  union held their first annual ball  on Friday evening, the same being  largely attended* and 'thorxaigl'ily  enjoyed. The proceeds of the ball  were given iu aid of one of* Ymir's  citizens who was in needy circumstances, as the result of a long spell  of illness.  J. P. Swedbcrg, who has been a  year at his old homo in Sweden, is  back in Nelson looking none the  worse for his trip.  ���MSP  Stoves   Stoves  We have the finest line of COAL HEATERS ever displayed in the district.
