 DAILY   EDITION   BY   MAIL  FIVE   DOLLARS A YEAR  WEEKLY EDITION  BY MAIL  TWO  DOLLARS A YEAR  EIGHTH  YEAR.  NELSON:  SATURDAY MORNING, MARCH 24 If03.  PRICE FIVE  CENTS.  THE POLITICIANS IN KASLO  Are Getting Ready.  Kaslo,  March   23.���There   have  been  many   candidates   talked of  here as likely to urn against "Bob"  Green.    "Bill Hunter oi' Alamo and  Silverton,    mayor    McAnn,   G.   O.  Buchanan, and John Keen of Kaslo,  are    mostly   spoken    of.     G.   O.  Buchanan, when interviewed, said  there  was nothing iu the reports,  published    principally   in   Nelson,  that_he was looking for the nomination.    "Let the people choose their  candidate," was his way of putting  it.    "I am very anxious that Mr.  Green should not be returned, but  I am  not talking of running.    If  the circumstances arise I "\\ ould just  as soon bo a candidate as not.    As  to the report that 1 am looking for  the nomination, there is nothing in  it."    Mr. Buchanan added that he  wanted to see a stable government,  one that would restore confidence,  and he was willing to sink all party  feeling to attain that end.  It does not seem to be generally  known that the Kaslo Conservatives have passed a motion in favor  of party lines. They sent the resolution to the Nelson convention,  but that body did not let the public  know half the business that came  before it. The motion as passed,  reads :  "Whereas the government of this  province has for some time been in  tho hands of men responsible to  themselves only for the actions of  the government; and whereas the  members of the legislative assembly  are split up into several different  factions inimical to tho best interests of the province, and it is believed that in order to establish  good government it is necessary  that party lines, usual under responsible government, obtain in this  piV'ince:  "Be it, therefore, resolved,* that  this meeting recommend that a con-  |- vention   of Conservatives   of   the  province be called .at an early date,  atacenttal point, for the purpose  of considering the present political  situation 'in the province."to decide  upon tt Conservative leader for the  province as a whole, and to elect' a  leader for the party in local affairs."  A miners' union has been formed  here.    It starts with 93 members.  Richard'Hardy  of   Lardo  City,  ' has been muiriidto Nettie May Mc-  Kee of this place.  Mr. Stephenson contemplates extending the telephone service.  Otto Augustine was having a  friendly wrestling1 match today  with John Bjoru, when he fell and  broke his leg.  II. Byers & Co. of Kaslo, Nelson  and Sandon, in competition with  Eastern and Coast firms, have received the contract for supplying  the hardware for the Kootenay  .Railway &'Navigation Company's  .new steamer.  Kaslo expects to get a good crowd  from Nelson on May 2J.th. There's  -nothing like starting early, and the  citizens-aro already talking of how  they shall celebrate tho queen's  birthday. _      Sharkey a Coward.  Nkw    York,   March   23.���Tom  Sharkey will   soon   be Avithout a  manager.   Tom O'ltourke is paving  tho way,   and   on  September  1st  actual severing of relations,   business,   diplomatic   and   social,   will  take place.    For several weeks past  sporting men have been predicting  tho   rupture.     The   challenge   of  Ruhliu was the direct cause  of it  becoming known.    It was reported  today   O'Rourko   had   decided   to  make a match with Kuhlin, so a reporter ealled at the Iiotel Delavau  to have the report verilicd.  "Yes,  I'll match  Sharkey against  him," said O'Rourke.  "He will fight  Ruhliu and a good many others before I get through with him." "You  don't  mean  that you are  to  give  him up?"    "Yes, I do.   His contract  with me will expire September  ] st,  and then ho will have to; get another manager.    Ho is  the biggest  coward I have evt r had anything to  do with.    He talks about meeting  any man in  the world, and whenever he is  pitted  against anybody  who can fight iie tiies to dodge the  issue.    He dodged Fitzsimnions on  Thursday. If Sharkey had come to  time and   acted  like   a  man  that  fight would not havo been declared  off.     Ho saw Fitasimnions meant  business, and tint was enough for  him.    The public does not know it,  but there came near being no fight  between Sharkey and Jeffries.     At  the last moment Tom declared he  would   not  leave   Sfcateu   Island,  giving the cheapest sort of excuses.  I pleaded with him, begged him and  then threatened to make little  Walcott take his place. A sense  of disgrace resulting from such an  act shamed him into fighting."  Plumer Reported in Trouble.  Loxnox, Match 23.���A dispatch  to tho Daily News from Lorenzo  Marquez, dated Friday, says : "It is  reported here from Pretoria that  commandant Eloff is isolating colonel Plumer's force near Gaberones.  FOUND DEAD ON THE TRAIL  BOER  HONESTY IMPUGNED  In Belgian Courts.  Nkw Yokk, March 23.���A criminal case which will attract the  greatest in America and in all  countries where the struggle between Great Britain and the Boers  is exciting attention, will be  heard on June 11th before tiie  Brussels tribunal, says a Brussels  cable to the Herald. It is a trial  which will put to the test the accusation of corruption brought by  the English government against the  Boer officials in general and president Kruger in particular.  The parties concerned are the  well known financiers, the baron  Oppenheimer, of the firm of Oppenheimer Freres, Louis and Henry  Waranl, Belgian barristers; M.  Braconier, a wealthy Belgian capitalist, of Liege, aud another Belgian, M. Terwange, all of whom  were assoociated for some years as  lessees of the Transvaal railway,  which was to connect Komati port  with Selati.  Tho Transvaal government complains that, by producing false  accounts, the company claimed from  them an amount of interest largely  in excess of* the capital subscribed  or required. According to information given out, the company's  directors, who are being prosecuted  on tliis charge, allege that they  werc'eompelled to make the charge  higher, in order to conceal the  bribes which they had topay'presi-  dent'Kruger and his familiars^and  most of the members of the Pretoria volksraad, including some of  the generals now engaged in tho  wa r.  A Miner's End.  C.   P. Hill,  customs collector at  Port Hill, Idaho, reports the sad  end of a Canadian miner.     James  Hawkins, who had worked for Mr.  Hill for a considerable time on his  mine,   the    Crack-a-Jack, situated  about seven miles above Kitchener,  wtis found dead ou the trail several  miles from Kitchener last Monday.  When    found    he    was    covered  with   about   two    feet   of   snow,  and   was   lying   face    downwards  with his face on his arm.'  He had  no money on him when found, nor  were there any marks of violence.  Au inquest, presided   over by E.  Mallandaine of Creston,  was held  over the body and a verdict was  returned of death from causes unknown.    It transpired  during  the  inquest   that   the    deceased   had  been     paid     !j$0     on    February  the   2nd,   and   $78 on   Tuesday,  the Oth instant.   He had, however,  been drinking in Kitchener and is  thought to have  spent his  money  there.     He   had  apparently been  dead several days when found.  Hawkins is understood to have  been a "Canadian, but nothing is  known of his birthplace. Any  information as to his relatives or  birthplace will be received and forwarded to the .proper quarters by  C. P. Hill, Port Hill, Idaho, or by E.  Mallandaine of Creston.  May Divine providence shower its  gifts upon our province and cause  peace and harmony to reign therein.  One More Step.  Washington, March 22.r��� The  senate today in executive session  ratified the treaty between the  United States and Great Britain  relative to tho estates of citizens of  one country who die in the other,  which has been under consideration  for the past two days. There wtis  no debate today, but several amendments were adopted.  FATE OF MAFEKING HANCS  NELSON MINSTRELS GIVE A  NELSON LOCAL NEWS.  PLUMER IS NO NEARER TO  Besieged Mafeking.  Loxr.ov, March' 23. ��� Colonel  Plumer has apparently retired to^  Crocodile Pool and Mafeking seems  further off than ever from lelief.  This news wt^s contained iu a dispatch from Buluwayo, dated Monday, March 19th, and published in  the seecnl edition of lhe Times.'  These advices add, that the base  hospital has been brought back to  Gaberones, though the correspondent further says it is thought the  object of the Boers'demonstration  of March 13th and 16th was to  cover���the removal - of tho "siege-  guns from Mafeking.  General French's activity in the  Orange Free State may well be a  preliminary to a forward movement  by lord Roberts with the main  army.  *  Waiting for Clute.  Since the return of Chris Foley  from Butte, where ho went to consti It the officers of the Western  Federation of Miners on the contract system, says the Rossland  Record, the miners* union lias received a telegram from It. C. Clute,  Dominion commissioner, who investigated the Kootenay labor troubles, asking that no decision be  reached until he arrives. He will  arrive about Monday, and meanwhile a decision is held in abeyance.  Workingmen's Risks.  Pjlattsuuro, New York, March  28.���Alexander Leelaire, a miner,  was killed by a cave-in in the iron  mine at Lyon mountain today. His  home was formerly in Montreal.  MuNcie, Indiana, March 23.���  Three men, Clifford Van Kirk,  Marile Barney and Thomas Sullivan,  were instantly killed, one fatally  injured and two seriously injured  by the explosion of a saw mill  boiler near Anthony, seven miles  from here today.  For Boer Consumption Only.  London, March 23,���A dispatch  from Bloemfontein, dated Thursday, March 22nd. says president  Kruger is reported to have issued a  proclamation declaring Great Britain to be in dire straits, and that  the Russians have occupied London.  Excellent progress is being made  with the planking of Fiont street.  Sixteen men are at work, half being  on the planking gang and the remainder on the grade.  Frank McCauna, pressman on The  Tkihune, returned yesterday from  Greenwood where he was putting  the Greenwood Times' press in  running ,order. He reports that  another "case 'of smallpox has been  discovered in Greenwood.  M. Leori Lisbet, whose departure  fOr-Franee was heralded in yesterday's Tribune, was detained at the  last moment by a cablegram. He  'expects, .however, to leave for  Fiance today or tomorrow.  F. J. Finucanc, manager of the  Bank ���of Montreal at Greenwood,  came in on last night's train. ' He  reports his town and country prospering.         FigMing at Lobatsi.,  London, March 23.-9:21 p. ra.���  The war office has issued  the following:     "From   the   general   at  Cape Town to the secretary of war.  The following telegram has arrived  from Nicholson, Buluwayo, March  16th:      'The   following    is   from  Plumer, Lobatsi, March 14th : The  Boers advanced from the south in  considerable" force   this   morning.  They also advanced from Goddes'  Siding.     After a sharp little engagement, lieutenant-Colonel Bod-  lo's advanced "post "was- compelled  to      retreat.       The      retirement  was     excellently      carried      out  to     our     main     position.      The  casualties     included       lieutenant  lieutenant   Chapman   and   a   corporal, prisoners, and two missing,  probably prisoners.    Five troopers  were  wounded.    Chapman's   horse  fell with him  closo to the enemy,  who immediately surrounded him.  Tho exact Boor casualties arc unknown,  but several were shot at  short range.   In  the afternoon the  Boers advanced further north and  shelled our position from a*ridge on  the left.    Our \2\ pounder replied,  the artillery duel continuing until  sunset.   Lieutenant A. J. Riley has  since died of his wounds.   One native was killed.' "  Still in the 'Balance.  London, March 24.���4:15 a. m.���  Lord Roberts' main army continues  waiting at Bloemfontein. The  sensational interest .in the fate of  Mafeking has intensified with colonel Plumer's forced retirement to  Crocodile Pool, where he was two  months ago. Relief from the  north now dwindles to an improbability. Lord Methuen is skirmishing with the Boers at Warren-  ton, 16 miles away. Although  seemingly iu force sufficient to do  pretty much as he likes, he has not  advanced these five days. It is  hoped that his military administration has a pleasant surprise in  preparation for Britishers by raising the siege with a strong column  of cavalry and artillery detouring  to Mafeking.  General   French's    cavalry   and  mounted infantry, it is   rumored,  are   fighting   somewhere    east   of  Bloemfontein.   This. suggests more  Boer  bad   news,   as   commandant  Olivier's commando, with two thousand   wagons, is   reported on  the  Basutoland frontier,  toiling northward towards Kroonstnadt via Lady-  brand.        This    enormous    wagon  train   is   supposed   to be   moving  twenty   miles   a    day.       General  French's cavalry posts stretch from  Bloemfontein    eastward    to    the  mountains.  General "Buller lifts? not nTovetViii  Natal. The eighth division will go  direct to- Bloemfontein. Lord  Roberts' effective force at the  front ten days hence ^ ill be, it is  estimated, 70,000 men with the easy  possibility of moving eastward,  forcing the Boers to evacuate the  Biggarsberg range and joining  hands with general Buller before  continuing the promenade to Pretoria.  The Delagoa Bay railway arbitration award is editorially considered  in the morning papers. The approaching declaration of the findings of the arbitrators is welcomed  s coining at an appropriate  moment, and is bringing the acquisition of-Delagoa" Bay appreciably nearer.  FREE STATERS VERY FOXY  Proroguing Quebec Legislature.  Quebec, March 23.���Honorable  Gentlemen of the Legislative Council, Gentlemen, of the Legislative  Assembly:  You have just completed the  labors of a long session and I highly  appreciate the zeal aud intelligence  which you have displayed in the  performance. 1 have sanctioned  with great satisfaction the numerous aud important acts that yon  have passed during the session. The  necessary appropriations for the  administration of public affairs  have been liberally voted by you  and my government will take the  necessary steps to ensure their being expended with due economy  and in accordance with their object. In proroguing this legislature,  in her majesty's name, I pray for  the happiness and prosperity of  both yourselves aud your families.  Keep Their Good Eifles.  Lon��on7 March 23.���A Springfontein dispatch published in the  second edition of the Times says :  "The apparent submissive attitude of tho Free Staters should be  accepted with caution. The large  proportion of obsolete, inferior  weapons being turned,in by them  to the British is giving the impression that large stores of modern  muuscrs are being concealed,"  The Outlook's special correspondent at Cape Town says :  "Fueling is running ntrong against  the leniency with which the Boers  are being treated by the British  authorities."  ' Good Show.  A large and appreciative audience  greeted the Nelson minstrels when  they held the boards at the opera  house last night. Judging from the  applause with which the entertainers were received their performance made a decided hit. The  company gave a good show, replete  with bright songs aud witty sayings. The programme was lengthy,  but interest was maintained from  start to finish. Tiie performance  was the best heard in Nelson for  many months, and was quite up to  the high standard already established by the Nelson minstrels.  When the curtain rose after a  dashing selection by the Millward  orchestra which accompanied splendidly during the evening, the company was disclosed arranged in a  semi-circle with Fred J. Lynch in  the interlocutor's chair. The balance of the company was  as follows: Mascot, Lance  Gilcrist; bones, 11. A. Gervan and  Charles Honey man : tambos, Harry  Marshall and Eddie McGinn; circle,  R. li. Thompson, >W, Martin, W.  H. Smyth, W. J. Hall, C. A. Prosser,  D. Hardie, W. Ross, J. White, G. M.  Berry, and I. G. Nelson.  The opening selection was "Down  on the Ohio," which  was rendered  with spirit by the company.    R. E.  Thompson followed in "Stories that  Mother told me," a good song and  well  sung.      Harry   Gervan  sang  "It's a hot Combination," in which  he was assisted by one of the company who impersonated  a  colored  belle.    Charles Prosser made a  hit  iu his song "What Right have you  to Judge Her," which  he gave  in  splendid  style.      An   enthusiastic  encore was accorded him, but ho  was unable   to  respond  owing to  hoarseness.     Eddie   McGinn came  next     with     "I'll      make   r that  Black      Gal      Mine,"       working  a few ragtime steps into the chorus.  "Uafi-yTVItirsliair rendered "I Ddtrt"  Unrterstund Ragtime" iu'ii   breezy  manner,  eliciting a hearty recall.  W. J. Caldwell followed with "King  O'er Laud  and Sea," which selection he handled  iu pleasing style.  Mr. Caldwell has an  exceptionally  clean-cut low note, which  he handled with  good  effect.    "My  Hannah  Lady," a popular" coon song,  was taken  by Charlie lloncymati,  who   pleased    the    audience    immensely.   The first part concluded  AVith "Dar's a Jubilee" by the company, Harry Marshall leading.  The olio consisted of a variety of  clover turns. George Berry's roller  skating act was first-class in every  ���respect, aud his entree \vti< quite  sensational, being made from a  platform at the rear of the stage.  Marshall and Thompson's musical  tuin was well received and proved  to be one of the artistic features of  the program.  Tho_ witty dialogues several of  which were devoted to the recent  fiost which the minstrels  received  home in response to a telegram  from representative Wheeler of  Kentucky, bidding him to appear  before the house committee on foreign affairs. He saw representative Taylor of Ohio, who had secured him his appointment as consul at Pretoria, and Mr. Wheeler*.  The latter arranged to see chairman Hitt of the foreign affairs committee and have the evidence of  Mr. Macrum taken early next ���week.  Mr. Wheeler says he will urge that  the inquiry take place before the  full committee.  WHY THE SUIT WAS SETTLED  Between Frick and Carnegie.  Nkw York, March 23.���Referring  to the settlement of the differences  between Andrew Carnegie and H.  C. Frick, the Press today says:  "As is known to all Great Britain  and to the newspaper-reading public of the  United States, the one  pet scheme of Cecil Rhodes, 'the  South African Colossus,' is his Cape-  to-Cairo railroad project.   This one  idea has far more to do with the  Boer war than ever has been. told.  As all England knows of his great  project, so does all Pittsburg, which  means the steel manufacturing  industry of the United States.    It is  known that the Carnegie Steel Company always has expected to obtain  the contract for furnishing the steel  rails, bridge building material and  other construction   work   for   the  great railroad.   The Carnegie Steel  company went so far last fall as  to  form a prospecting party of rival  engineers, draughtsmen nnd others  versed in surveying and  engineering, to go over the  proposed route  of the Cape to Cairo railroad.   The  prospecting jmrty  expected  to. be  in Central Africa for two years  at  least, and it was to'start from Pittsburg to Cape Town next month.  "Had the bitter feud continued  between these two millionaire iron  and steel kings, the affairs of the  Carnegie Steel Company, possibly,  *would.have been tied.up.by litigation, the numerous mills closed by  injunctions obtained by Frick, and  all the possibility of this company  getting the enormous contract fora  steel rails for the Cape "to Cairo,  road would have been off."  NELSON AND HER PEOPLE  Thanked for Prompt Assistance;  Boers in Good Shape.  London, Maich 24.���A Bloemfontein correspondent of the Daily  News, telegraphing Thursday, says :  "A letter from Mr. Ponlteney, an  interpreter in the Free State courts,  has been received by his wife here,  in which the writer declares that  general Joubert is commanding the  combined forces at Kroonstaadt,  where there are plenty of men,  guns and food stuffs for a determined resistance.  at Sandon, were sandwiched in between the selections in the first  part of the program,  "The Abscnt-Minded Beggar," by  W.

Don't Smoke a Cheap Pipe  See  THURMAN, Tobacconist.  ��fe tffirttmn^  Ik  pass a  thk Liberal party Avill  only  laAV on  the   lines   of   the  speech made by postmaster-general  Mulock in the house of commons,  they Avill have done something that  Avill earn them the gratitude of all  laboring  men.     In  brief,  the  law  Avould be that on work done by  contract for Canada, or for corporations   aided   by   subsidies   from  Canada, a provision  Avould be inserted in   the   contract  requiring  that the mimiraum rate of Avages  paid   laborers Avould be the rate  Ijrcvailing in the district in AA'hich  the  work AA'as to bo done.   -Were  there such a law, men Avorking ou  roads like that uoav being buiit east  from Nelson Avould receive the rate  of wages prevailing iu the neighborhood,  and eastern  contractors,  like those who secured the contract  to rebuild tho public buildings at  NeAV Westminster, A\*ould be compelled to pay the rate of Avages prevailing in the towns in Avhich they  contract to do Avork, instead'of the  rates prevailing at the tOAvns from  whence they bi ing their Avorkmen.  WfiRR the eight-hour law .repealed tomorrow, the agitation for  its re-enactment ' AA'ould recommence, and ic Avould be continued  until the point was gained, for the  adoption  of a general   eight-hour  1 Avorkdtiy is only a question of time.  Thenjwhy continue_the_Hgitation?  Why not allow what is  bound to  ' cJine, remain a finalty, uoav that it  lias come? It is safe to say that if  the agitators Avho am clamoring  for the repeal of the eight-hour  law AA'ere to remain quiet, the law  -would not even be a question of  .   discussion six: months hence.  Tnfirus are other issues   of fat*  moro importance to the public as a  Avhole than the repeal of tho eight-  hour law.    One of tho issues should  bo   a   policy   that   Avould    induce  people   to   make   their   homes   in  British  Columbia.    The  people of  British1 Columbia should  be  made  self-supporting.    Every natural resource of  the  province should be  made bring to her people the maximum of leinfit, uot the minimum,  as at present.   The raw material of  our   mines and forests   should  be  made into manufactured products ;  the products of the farm, tho orchard, a-id tJ e range should take  tli9 place of like products from, for-  eign countries.    Is there one man  seeking office in the province today  sufficiently broad-minded  to make  such an issue?   If there if, let him  lead, and  the people  will do the  rest. _^   Over at the little town of Moyie,  in East Kootenay, where there are .  over �� Itnndred wiion miners  at'  work, the mine managers had no  trouble in adopting the Slocan Compromise Standard of Wages. Although the men had been receiving  the old rate of wages, that is, $3  and $3.50 a day, they accepted "the  neAV rate Avithout dissent, saying  that they Avere Avilling to do their  share to bring about harmony in an  industry in Avhich all the people of  the district are interested. This is  the right spirit, and Avere a like  spirit manifested at Nelson and  Rossland, no folloAver of "Joe" Margin would haA'e a folloAver in Southern Kootenay. And strange as it  may appear, a majority of the  miner's at Moyie are from the Cceur  d'AIenes.     '  Tni3 Rossland  Record, which is  the official organ of the little clique  of Conservative politicians at Rossland who have,appoInted themselves  the saviours of British Columbia,  sneeringly remarks that "Mormon  Utah'^ is the only state in the Union  that has a compulsory eight-hour  laAV for men Avorking in mine's. The  people of British Columbia can take  many lessons from "Mormon Utah."  They can take a lesson that if well  learned will make them the ;most  prosperous and contented people in  Canada.     The lesson is, give employment to only those Avho come  to British Columbia to make homes  here.    That less"ou has been Avell  learned by the people of "Mormon  Utah. - - "Mormon Utah"-has-tried-  the   eight-hour   law   for   several  years, and the men Avho opposed it  are now its strongest supporters,  because they have found that its  effect has been good.   The people  of British Columbia Avill (ind like-  Avise if they Avill only Jet the law be  given a fair working trial. Already  in the Slocan all parties arc united  in    saying    that    they    do    not ;  want the agitation against the laAV  kept up auy longer.    Business is  becoming settled,  mine   managers  ant! mine workers are allowing time  to> heal  their differences, and the  country  Avill  boon  be all  right if  only the party politicians can he  kept quiet.    The best Avay to keep  them quiet is to snow  them  under  at the polls.  Therm are .slight differences at  present between  captain   Duncan,  manager of the Granite  and   other  mines on Eagle creek, aud tho men  formerly employed at  the  mines.  Why not settle  the differences by  arbitration ?   All those Avho know  captaii) Duncan believe him a well-  meaniug mine manager, and those  avIio know the men believe them to  be honest in their  efforts  to make  the Slocan standard of wages the  uniform   standard   for   Kootenay.  Lot  each  side  appoint   an   arbi- i  iralcuv and Jet the two thus se-j  Toronto Globe.  At present Canada's money is  being spent upon needlessly expen-  sive peace-time uniforms, and it has  proved difficult to provide the Avar  uniforms, cheap as they are, for  eA'en one battalion.  When the Queensland Mounted  Infantry camped beside us here at  Belmont it Avas impossible not to  observe Iioav well uniformed the  men Avere. Our men Avere at that  time wearing the Avhite helmets of  the Canadian sei'A'ice, dyed in sorry  style by coffee, and faded and  Aveather-stained iuto hideous caricatures of helmets. Beside them the  emu-plumed felt hats of the Queenslanders showed as a graceful,  light and serviceable head-dress.  The khaki jackets of the Queenslanders fitted easily aud 'well; their  their cord riding breeches Avere  ���strong and comfortable; their long  leather leggings, though of the  wrong color, AA'ere otherwise serviceable. In a word, the Queenslanders weie accustomed to the use  of the khaki uniforms, and Avere  outfitted Avith incomparably less  difficulty than attended the*equipping.of our contingent.  Wealthy Britain, AA'ith an  army  which may be called upon to servo  in any quarter of the  world, has so  far kept tliat army clad, at great  expense, in a peace uniform entirely  different from  what is worn in the  field, and vastly .more costly.    Her  reasons for sticking to. the red are  partly conservatism, "partly sentiment   aud   partly   the   fact   that  a    large    voluntary    army    must  attract   recruits    by    means    of  gay uniforms.    Canada, with an infinitely shorter purse, Avith an a_>  propriation   for military  purposes  AA'hich is painfully inadequate, goes  on  spending  no  small  portion   of  that inadequate appropriation for  peace uniforms Avhich in Avar Avould  be Avorse  than  useless and Avould  cost fully twice  as  much as   the  active service unifoims.    Is it Avise?  The experience of this  campaign  goes to sIioav one the immeasurable  superiority of khaki.    For  drill  in  our Juno camps it Avould prove far  more comfortable than tlunmiforms  now worn there.

Kcpublieiui.  all forms of self-eoneeifc per  haps the most monstrous is that of  trying to put one's self in tho place  of Christ, and to decide olf-hacd for  tho  world  just what  his   infinite  goodness and wisdom would dictate  in  all the affairs of modern   life.  Rev.  0.  M. Sheldon, author of "In  His Steps," who is now trying his  hand at conducting a newspaper as  Jesus  Avould  conduct it,  seems to  have his hands more than full  at  the  very  outset of his enterprise.  A recent newspaper dispatch from  Topeka,  the  scene   of the  experiment, says that he spent the previous  day  in  passing judgment ou  the advertisements submitted.    He  is to have supreme authority during  the coming week,- and all contracts  for advertisements contain the proviso that the advertisement must  be accepted by him.  :The statement of the lines drawn  by his censorship suggests that om-  .. niscience must be added to godliness to accomplish what he has set  out to do. Some limitations he  frankly recognizes and admits. All  advertisements of patent medicines  he has canceled,; not because they  are all bad, but because ho has not  the time to sift out the bad ones  from the good. Ancl, indeed, if au  editor personally tested all such  wares his experiment in applied  Christianity would be brought to a  sad and sud.den ending. But how  ajjift'it the vendors of worthy specifics?   Have they no reason to feel  - that they are being punished unjustly for the sins of others? Mr.  Sheldon also rejects-all" adveruse  nients of corsets, because, lie disapproves of that article of attire. If  he   were    a   Jaegerifcc,    he  would  ,doubtless feel constrained also to  keep"0ut all advertisements of non-  sanitary underwear.  '-    AU  adA'ei'Usemcnta  of   alcoholic  drinks and tobacco are, of course,  iabooed, because Rev. Mr. Sheldon  disapproves      of.    those    .articles.  .Whether he includes tea and coffee  in his diet is not stated.   They are  .probably  at 'least  as  injurious  as  corsets.    But the reformer goes further than to reject advertisements  of articles which seem to him objectionable.    He will not advertise  a  unigawue which coutains advertisements of lit j nor or tobacco, or  which displays 'advertising pictures  of which he disapproAres.    It will be  seen that this branch of censorship  is enough    to   occupy    one   man's  time, Avithout the incidental trifle  of editing a newspaper.    Mr. Sheldon, for instance, disapproves   of  -fcho theatres.���Plow-can he-mention  the name of a magazine Avhich vcli-  tures  to publish an article on the  p.tage, perhaps illustrated (horrible  'supposition) with pictures of pretty  "actresses?   The editor's programme-  oven transcends the field of,morals.  lie refuses, for-instance, to  accept  advertisements  from  Kansas  City  fetail houses, because he thinks itis-  the duty of a newspaper to stand  by  home merchant*.    With equal  juKtice ho might decline to receive  advertisements   from    department  stores, because of the detrimental  effect they havo upon the smaller  dealers.  In fact, AA'hen a man has the  colossal egotism to make himself  Christ'* mouthpiece on subjects  concerning Avhich Christ Avas silent,  there "is lio limit to thcabsurdities  involved, The spectacle is both  ridiculous and repulsive. To prostitute the great truths of Christianity to a Aveek's flamboyant self-advertising is a degradation of religion.         A   VAST   LABtm   STRIKE.  New VorklOngineciing and Mining .Journal.  One of tho most important and  obstinate strikes ever knoAvn in  Europe is that of the Austrian coal  miners, which has uoav lasted over  two months, o\-er 70,000 men being  idle. Nearly all the coal mines in  Austria and Bohemia are clo.=ed,  and serious difficulty lias resulted,  many factories being elosod down  for want of fuel, while the railroads  have difficulty in keeping up their  train servhe The questions at  issue include the rate of wages, the  hours of labor and soma other  points, such as the store system and  Is now prepared to issue Drafts and  Letters of Credit on Skaguay, U. S.,  Atlin, B. C, and Dawson City, N. W. T.  lodging of the men and tlieir families. The goA'ernment has intervened and attempted to settle the controversy, but without success, and  the best that it has been able to do  i.s to promise to submit a laAV to the  reichsrath, Avhich is now in session,  proA'iding for the protection of the  miners. It is admitted that the  men haA-e substantial grieA'ances,  that their condition has been A'ery  bad, and that they have been treated unjustly and oppressively by  many mine-owners.  At first the coal miners in Hungary took no part in the movement  but recently, the meu in the important mines of the Hungarian state  railroads struck also, aud their example  is likely to be followed by  'others.'   Moreover, the latest news  is that some 5000 miners in the district of Zwickau in Saxony haA'e refused to Avork because coal from  the mines Avas shipped to Austria.  Should   this  movement   extend  in  Germany it Avill produce some serious embarrassment.  The only supplies of which Austrian consumers can readily avail  themselves are from Germany. But  Germany has no coal to spare, and  there are many complaints of the  scarcity and high price of fuel.  Moreover, Germany ustially takes a  large part of the brown coal mined  in Bohemia, and this supply is uoav  cut off, causing a further call upou  the German mines. At present the  Austrian miners seem to -have a  strong position, aud it looks as if  the mine-OAvners. must make some  concessions.  Outside of NeAV York city the  clearances were $57'1,9S4,809, a decrease of 5.3 per cent.  A Reform Movement Spreading.

S. Kinghoru, who recently left  for the coast.  The staff of men working on the  Balfour extension has now increased to 800. B. Procter has his outfit  at Balfour and expects to start  driving piles for the new slip today.  Frank Fletcher has been appointed agent for the C. P. Si. section of  the new Procter townsite, and lots  are now on sale. The plan of the  town shows Second street east,  Second street, First, Third and  Fourth streets running north and  south, and Lakeview, Woodside and  Railway avenues running east and  west. The townsite includes 10  blocks.  Carlo Deceista settled the five dollars and costs imposed on him for  failing to pay the city road tax.  At the county court held at  Kaslo this week, judge Forin presided, the following Nelson men made  application for naturalization:���  Ingold C. Schema erhoru, Soi'en  Nelson and John A. Jviunau.  As far as can be ascertained with  any accuracy, the miners are likely  to come to an understanding with  their employei's at an eai'ly date,  says the Rossland Miner. The feeling seems to be that the question  will wear itself out without making  too much of a pother anent the  contract system. There was an  important meeting on AVednesday  night but as the matters over which  the trouble has arisen were only informally discussed, no conclusions  can be said to have been arrived at.  Each day seems to work for peace,  and it is openly stated that the  solution of the problem can only be  delayed a few days lougei.  The system of police 'patrolling  has been slightly rearranged so  that constable Hardie now goes'oii  duty earlier in "the evening and  patrols until 5 o'clock a. m. Constable Kerr commences work at 10  p. in., and remains on duty until 8  o'clock a. in.  The executive of the Nelson Curling Club mee^s shortly to wind up  the club's affairs for the season.  The building season will shortly  be in full swing and local architects  and builders state that the outlook  for a busy summer is much brighter  than was the 'case at this time last  year.  P. M. Allan, teller of the Rossland  branch of the Bank of Halifax, has  been arrested on the charge of embezzlement. It is alleged that he is  several hundred dollars short in his  accounts.  The Imperial Bank, now comfortably housed in their new quarters  in the Burns' block, have heralded  the~sam"e bya Ifaioclsome sign board,  tho handiwork of F. J. Bradley &  Co., who also had charge of all the  interior painting and finishing  work.  The Le Roi company has let a  contract for a new 700 horse power  hoist for their main Avorking .shaft.  Fraser Sc Chalners of Chicago and  London are the successful bidders.  Frank Summers was brought before magistrate Crease yesterday  morning ou the .charge of stealing  a purse from the Model restaurant.  He was discharged, there being no  evidence to support bhe prosecution.  James Dunn was arrested .on  Thursday night charged with .vagrancy. He was arraigned at yesterday's police court and ordered to  leave town before night.  R. J. Steele, who is engaged in  taking a census of the city, has  made good progress with his task.  Up to yesterday ho had enrolled  1400 names.  The break iu the sewer near the  Methodist church has been repaired  and precautions taken to prevent a  recurrence of the trouble with the  quicksands at this point. A quantity of broken stone was dropped  in to make a foundation for the  new   section of   pipe.  Chief  Thompson   is   showing   a  sample   belt    of   the    description  which he will secure f>  the lire department,  j heavy leather, stoutly fastened, so  j that a man can suspend .himself by  hi,  not showy,  but has the virtue  of  being extremely practical.  A new set of Scotch marine boilers is being placed in the steam  launch Vidette, owned by AV. R.  McLean aud G.tW. Hale. The Vidette  is constructed oh speedy lines, and  with her new machinery will show  a clean pair of: heels to anything of  her size sailing out of Nelson.  The Hudson's Bay Stores, Kerr &  Co., Fred Irvine & Co., and Martin  O'Reilly make displays iu their  show windows that cause a poor  man to wish ho was out of civilization.  James A. Gilker of the Nelson  Clothing House will have 400 square  feet of plate glass behind which to  display tho finest stock of clothing  ever brought to Nelson.  The Kootenay Coffee Company  claim their business was never  better than it is today. A like  declaration was made by J. A. Irving & Co., retail grocers. These  are only straws that indicate that  no one is ruined in Nelson except  the mine managers who are out of  jobs through mismanagement.  George Hale's new gasoline  launch has been placed in the  water. She is a trim craft and has  double the seating capacity of any  similar boat on the lake. Mr. Hale  has built a boat house adjoining his  workshop for the accommodation  of the now launch.  Several prominent baseball men  have examined the recreation  grounds with a view to reporting  on the probable outlay necessary  to put them in shape for playing.  Their report will be that an outlay of $35 to $50 will make the  grounds better than ever before.  F. M. MacCrae of the Bank of  Montreal has been nominated  treasurer of the dramatic entertainment which E. P. Whalley is  getting up on behalf of the Canadian Patriotic Fund.  The Imperial Bank will do business today in its new and commodious offices in the Burns' block. The  growth of this bank at Nelson is  indicative of the growth of the  town.
