SOME HARD FIGHTING WITH  Boers at Lobatsi.       "  ��� Lobatsi,  March  10.���-The  Boers  und or   commandant   Snyman    are  advancing in force from Mafeking  towards Lobatsi.  Colonel Bixllc made a reconnaissance on Morch 13th and found  Pitsani and Pothlugo occupied by  the Boers. He returned to Goode  Siding and made a demonstration  on March 1 Ith. lie found the Boers  in strength at a sharp curve on the  tailway. They had mounted a gun  on the line and weie lying in wait  for the construction train.  A brisk filing occurred a feAV  miles south of Lobatsi on themorn-  J iug of the loth. The Boers' Maxim  was freely used. Colonel Bodle  came in touch with the Boers just  in time to prevent the camp being  surprised. The Boers attacked the  advance party and captured a few  boxes of ammunition and nearly  secured a Maxim. Lieutenant  Tyler was killed and lieutenant  Chapman captured. Colonel Bodle,  coming up, put the Boers to flight  with heavy loss.  The Boers yesterday were within  a few miles of Lobatsi.  Yesterday afternoon the Boers  pressed closely on colonel Plumer's  main camp and kept up a hot lire  with a maxim, killing one white  man and one native. They placed  the maxim and a twelve-and-a-half  pounder on the hill on the east side  of the line, -J000 yards from the  camp. The British right is protected by chief Bathen. who has  warned the Boers not to enter his  territory.  Colonel Plumer's pi esen t endeavor  is to insure the safety of the railway north of Lobatsi ancl to watch  ^vell the left Hank. It is probable  V'biiat, before the Boers retire towards  Pretoria, they ^ ill tackle the Rho-  desians in force.  It is reported that the burghcis  are abandoning tho enviions of Ma-  . feking, leaving only a sufficient  number of artillerists to man the  big guns. There are none rat Ram-  , atalabama, where they were snp"-  posed to have their base. iQpIonol  Plumer's scouts were at R-imatala-  bama yesterday. The usual Mafe-  king dispatches arc overdue, but no  anxiety is felt ou that score. Dy-,  namite explosions Avrecking the  railway are proceeding south of  Lobatsi. i  -  under the laws of New Jersey. The  eifect of the projjosed reorganization will be to terminate all the  equity proceeding now pending.  The stocks and bonds of the new  corporation are to be taken by*thc  present owners themselves and not  offered to the public as once contemplated. Mr. Schwab will continue as the executive head of the  company.  A BOER FAKE VICTORY IS  Announced in Pretoria.  Iyiioonstaadt, Orange Free State,  Mai oli 20.���-Via Pretoria, March 22.  ���The Boots, commanded by general Olivier, have engaged the Britibh troops under geueral Gatacre in  the vicinity of Bethulie, repulsing  the Biitish with heavy loss and  capturing many of them. Burghers are arriving here in great  numbers. General DeWet arrived  today.  Loxnox, March 22.���The report  from Kroonstaadt, Orange Free  State, via Pretoria, that the Boers  under command of general Olivier  had defeated the British troops  under command of general Gatacre  in the vicinity of Bethulie, is not  believed heie. A dispatch to the  Daily News from Springfontein,  dated Tuesday, Maich 20th, says  general Gatacre was "all well" and  adds that he and general Brabant  had not lost a dozen men in a  fortnight.  The latest advices placed general  Gatacre about 30 miles north of  Bethulie, where the Boer report  says the defeat was inflicted. This,  combined with the fact that no  mention of the affair was made by  lord Roberts in hi.s dispatch of  March 21st, confirms the belief that  the Kroonstaadt reports are erroneous.  ROSSLAND   LIBERALS  SHY  '     /  ^  Smith Curtis at Meeting.  BosbJ.AXi), March 23���[Special to  -ThcTtibune].���A largely attended  meeting of the Liberal Association  was held last evening to meet the  ITon. Smith Curtis, minister of  mines, and discuss the political situation with him. Tho meeting  lasted uutil after midnight, but resulted in no definite action. The  members- individually endorscd-the  candidature of the IXon. Smith Curtis, should he stand for this constituency, but they did not either  as individuals or as au association  approve of the lion. Joseph Martin,  no motion having been submitted  in regard to his government.  A resolution was adopted calling  upon the provincial Liberal executive to summon a convention of the  Liberals* of British Columbia for the  purpose of deciding what attitude  .should bo taken by the party. Nothing was said whatsoever regarding party lines, Mr. Curtis addressed the meeting and was most  cordially received. A vote of thanks  was voted him for his attendance.  In Basutoland,  MazijTo, Basutoland, Wednesday,  March 21.��� Everybody in Basutoland rejoices in the restoration of  telegraphic communication with  Aliwal North. The proclamation  of lord Roberts is apparently effective, as the Free Staters aro surrendering to the Basutoland officials.  The occupation of Neiiu and Roux-  ville by the British has produced  an excellent impression, convincing  the Basutos that the authority of  Uic queen is paramount,  Frick-Carnegie Suit Settled.  PriTbBL'iia, Pennsylvania, Maich  22. -The differences between II. C.  Flick and Andrew Carnegie have  been settled. This announcement  was made officially by the Carnegie  Steel Company late this afternoon.  The parties interested havo agreed  upon a plan of reorganization, the  new  concern  fco  be incorporated  France and Morocco.  Paris, March 22.���It is said that  the   government   of   Morocco   has  vigorously protested   against ,the  lecent, French occupation   of _ the  Oasis of Iiisalah, wliich it is churned  on   behalf of   Morocco,   is ail  encroachment upon the territory of  that   country.     Tiie two  governments have been in negotiation on  the subject, and France has decided  to send a .special plenipotentiary to  Tangiers with   the   object    of arranging the matter.     According to  the  Patrie,  the situation  has  become so grave that the government  on Tuesday resolved that M. Revoil  should start immediately on  board  the cruiser Du Chala of 3052 tons  which will remain at Tangiers  in  order to protect French   citizens.  Further serious news received yesterday decided the French government   to   dispatch to   Tangiers a  second  cruiser,  tlio Latouche-Tre-  ville, which yesterdaynvas ordered  to sail for Tangiers.  Connaught in Belfast.  Belfast, March 22.���For the first  time in years, the duke of Con-  naught, commander of the forces in  Ireland,-visitell Belfast today on a  tour of military inspection. He  was enthusiastically received. The  earl of Dufferin and Ava proposed  the health of his'royal highness at  luncheon. The duke in his response  referred to the wonderful development of Belfast, alluding to* the  forthcoming visit of the queen. He  said that all understood that it was  entirely by the queen's own will  that she was planning to revisit the  country of which she had always  cherished the warmest recollections.  He paid a high tribute to the  gallantry of tho Irish regiments in  South Africa, where, he said, Irish?  men, wide by side witli soldiers from  the colonies and the United Kingdom, were proving their devotion  to their sovereign.  Gatacre is Strict.  London-, March 23.���A dispatch  to the Daily News from Springfontein dated Wednesday morning,  March 21st, says: "General Gat-  act e and his staff are still here. He  is most strict regaiding the private  property of the Boors. Some officers who had looted Boer farms  havo beeu tiied and punished, to  the great astonishment and gratification of the Roors."  ONLY RUMORS IN LONDON  None Are Believed.  London, March 23���4 a. m.���  Again there is a persistent rumor  that Mafeking has been relieved. It  is even asserted that the war office  has received a dispatch positively  announcing the relief, but that publication of it is held back because  the form of the message admits of  the possibility of a mistake. The  war office, however, declares that  there is no confirmation of the rumor, and that no further news on  the subject is at hand.  No attention is paid in any quarter to the wild Boer rumors of commandant Oliver's victory over general Gatacre, which are only designed to relieve the drooping  spirits of the burghers. It seems  certain that Mafeking's only chance  lies iu relief by the columns supposed to be advancing from the  south, or in the possibility that  colonel Baden-Powell is strong  enough to attempt a sortie with a  view of capturing the Boer guns at  the time when commandant Symons  withdrew his men to oppose colonel  Plumer's advance.  All the reports 1-egarding the  British operations in the Free State  continue to be satisfactory. Nothing has developed regarding  general Buller's intentions, but it  seems hard to believe that he is  again embarking general Warren's  division.  It is reported from Lorenzo Marquez that Pretoria is prepared to  stand a siege of two years and that  the Boer women, frantic at the reverses to the Boer arms, are entreating to be allowed to shoot the  British officers imprisoned at Pretoria. It is also announced from  the Transvaal capital that the Italian government has declined to interfere.  No Traitors - Need Apply.  t London, .March 22.���At a meeting  today  of   the% constituents of Dr.  Gavin Brown Clarke,,Liberal member for Caithness aud formerly consul-general of  the South African  Republic, hi& resignation was again  demanded.        A    resolution   was  adopted drawing the attention of  the house of commons to the grave  charges made agaiust Dr. Clark in  connection with the [letters  stolen  from Mr. Bouchier A. Hawkeley, solicitor to the British South African  Compauy, in regard to the Jameson'  laid.   Dr. Clarke  was consul-general of tho South African Republic  prior   to   JS91,   and, has   wiitten  pamphlets, on the land question in  South Africa, India, and on some  special questions.    He was born in  Scotland  in  Scotland in 1810  and  was educated at the University of  Glasgow and Edinburgh and Kings  College, London.  presidents Steyn and Kruger regretting that it is unable to comply with their requests for intervention in tho South African war  after the formal declaration of the  British government that intervention would not be accepted. It was  added, however, that the government of Netherlands would always  be ready to support steps tending  to the restoration of peace.  DIVING FOR A LOST BARGE  COMPLAINTSJF METHUEN  No Peace Overtures.  London. March 22.���Replying in  the house of commo is today to a  series of questions oa the subject of  general   lord    Methuen   and    his  alleged   disagreements    with   the  officers of his column which  have  caused considerable comment,  the  parliamentary   secretary   for   the  war office, George W3rndham, declared that no  charges  had  been  brought  against  general Methuen  by   colonel   Gough   or   any other  officer.    Colonel Gough,  he  added,  has been informed that an inquiry  would be held iu his case.   Colonel  Gough   is   alleged , to   have    been  ordered homo by general Methuen  after declining to obey a command  issued by the latter, and the colonel  demanded a trial by court martial.  It has been learned that no peace  overtures have been made to lord  Salisbury, nor are any expected at  present by Great Britain. The  telegraphic correspondence has  been confined to the treatment of  piisoners. Loid Salisbury, as already cabled, is holding the presidents of the South African Republics responsible for the welfare of  the British prisoners. The question of the safety of Johannesburg  and the gold mines there has not  been raised. The correspondence  exchanged between lord Salisbury  and president Kruger will .shortly  be given to parliament.  Boers Clear Out.  Warrentox, ''March  Boers haA'e vacated Klip  Windsorton, which are almost  deserted.

Loxnox, March 23.���A special  correspondent of the Times at  Bloemfontein telegraphing Thursday .says: "Yesterday Mr. Kruger  issued a proclamation annexing the  Free State to the Transvaal. Mr.  Steyn immediately issued a counter  proclamation declaring the Freo  State intact."  British Boer Soldiers.  London, March 23.���The Standard in its principal editorial-today-  indulges the hope that many Boers  may yet become British soldiers.  It says: "The Boers are proved to  have a remarkable turn for soldiering, and there must be many young  Boers who will be reluctant to return to a dull pastoial life after  tho excitements of the campaign.  If they arc willing to adopt a military career, we can find room for  them iu safer and more satisfactory  enterprises than armed rebellion.  We may yet hope to see some  future Cronje or Joubert leading  British troops on tho battlefield,  side by side with generals of Irish,  Canadian and Australian origin."  An Artillery Duel.  Kimukrwsy, March 22.���There  was a smart artillery duel near  "Warrenton yesterday morning. A  battery under major Blowitt, supported by the Kimberley Light  Horse, located the Boers who employed four guns, two of which  used cordite, but ineffectively. The  British battery replied with effect  and silenced the Boer fiie. The  Boers sent two shells near the railway station which was notdamaged.  A Deserter's Report.  London, Maich 23.���A dispatch  to the Morning Post from Bloemfontein, dated Wednesday,says: "A  deserter icports that the enemy  after repeated dissensions have  withdrawn from Brandfort northwards?."

He only  succeeded" in inducing about 150  meu to accompany him. mostly insurgents colonists. The 1'Vcc Statei s  refused to go with him and are returning to their farms.  Eival Burghers at Outs.  London, March 22.���The Daily  News has the following from Bloemfontein, dated Wednesday: "It is  rumored thut-Mr.���Kruger and'MiC  Steyn will meet at Kroonstaadt, in  the Orange Freo State on April Ibh,  to discuss the future programme.  The feeling between the Transvaal  and the Free State is> very bitter,"  Don't Want Boers.  Berlin, March 22.���In German  colonial circles ic is feared that  after Great Britain annexes the  Transvaal tho Boers will tick into  German Southwest Africa. Several  newspapers have referred to this  possibility dm ing the last few days,  plainly intimating that the Boers  are not wanted.  Show Clemency.  London, March 23.���Winston  Churchill, telegraphing from Ladysmith on Thursday, pleads for  mercy in dealing with rebel". He  says: "'We must not try for our  pound of flesh. No real conqueror  over lost by clemency either in this  world or in the next."  DouMed on His  Track.  .London, March 23.���The Singapore correspondent of tiie Times  says: "Ku Yei Wei, the Chinese reformer who wtis reported a month  ago to have sailed for London, returned here secretly in a pilot boat  and has lived in Singapore ever  since."

The famoiii Turkish general  hab been sick for a few weeks, but  his healfch-is now improving. ��  Box Car Also Located.  The efforts to raise the Kaslo &  Slocan barge sunk off the C. P. R.  docks   were   resumed   yesterday,  wheu a couple of divers from  tho  Coast were  brought  in  to  search  the bottom of the hike for the missing craft    Their efforts were successful inasmuch as the position  of  the   barge   was   ascertained    and  buoyed.    Today another series  of  descents will be made for the purpose of attaching the tackle  necessary to raise the hull.    The barge  in question was  lost  in  November  last during one of the heavy blows  wliich occurred toward the end  of  the month.    She was  loaded  with  lime rock for the Hall  Mines  smelter.      The   craft   was   05   feet iu  length  and  valued at  $2400.     In  February a couple   of   futile attempts Avere made to raise her with  giant grapnels   fashioned   out   of  steel rails.  The divers brought in yesterday  were James Moore and A. K. McDonald, both of Vancouver. They  are old navy men, Moore having  been a warrant officer aboard  II. M. S. Iron Duke when his time  expired. The divers brought complete outfits, including an air pump  which weighs several hundred  pounds.  Woi k was started yesterday at  noon, a small barge being utilized  to take the divers out to  the point near which the  barge was supposed to lie.  Commodore Gore of the C. P. R.  fleet was in charge of the party.  Moore, who does the submarine  work, donned the regulation shoes,  weighing 35 pounds apiece, helmet  and water proof clothing. The air-  pump was got in shape and at a  signal from McDonald, who takes  charge of i the life line and pump,  Moore jumped Iirst into the lake  with ti tremendous splash and shot  to the bottom. Sixty-four feet of  line was payed out before .his -feet  touched ground,' ,au<l he- immediately began to work around, his  course being indicated by the air  bubbles from tho escape valve.  After being iti the water 29 minutes Moore came up, and reported  that he could not find the barge,  bub leported tho discovery of a box  car resting on the bottom., lie  stated that the car was in good condition, and volunteered to raise it  today. This car went over the end  of the slip about a year ago.  Having   icstec!   a   few  minutes  while the scow was moved to a new  position, Moore dropped again and  after ten minutes  or  so  gave the  .signal to haul up.   This time,ho reported having struck the sunken  barge.    She wa.s lying' right side up  in G5 feet of water with her lotid of  rock       apparently      undisturbed.  jMoore then made another descent,  but   failed   to   discover   anything  new.   He will go down again today  shortly after !) o'clock.  -  In conversation with���a-Tin hunk  reporter Moore stated  that  he had  never  gone  into water so  cold  as  that in the lake.    His  hands were  not  protected,  and  on coming  up  they   were   benumbed   with   cold.  The bottom   of  the  lake, ho "said,  was six inches deep in mud or .sediment, and every step he took raised  ti cloud of mud iu front of him.    Jt  was quite imposbible to see, mo e  particularly  as   the  day  was dull,  and in moving tound he had to find  to.Jinrl hifc way  by  guesswork.    A  Hiiall slate attached   to the life line  was urfed   for communicating with  tho   surface.    In   none of   his descents did Moore see a .single fish, a  fact which ho reuiaikcd   on   immediately after boiug drawn up.  The operation is decidedly interesting and attracted a couple of  score of .spectators."  farce; which form part of the  dramatic entertainment being got  up by E. P.

Leon Lisbet and Gennevoise,  representing the French stockholders in the Whitewater mine on  Rover creek, have returned from an  inspection of the mine. M. Lisbet  is a French mining engineer of  large experience, whose experience  in the new world has hitherto been  confined to Mexico and Bolivia,  where he has conducted extensive  mining operations.  When questioned as to his opinion of the Whitewater, M. Lisbet  was somewhat non-committal,  though by no means pessimistic.  There is now from four to eight  feet of snow on the Whitewater  group, and so he was precluded  from making an exhaustive examination of the property. He says  he knows nothing of the surface indications of the property or of its  geological conditions. He was,  however, able to thoroughly examine the underground workings  of the mine with which he is satisfied.  M. Lisbet authorizes the statement for publication that, from  what he has seen, the Whitewater  mine should, under careful management, be capable of being made a  dividend paying property. This,  from an extremely careful and conservative engineer, is high praise  and goes far to bear out the opinion  wliich has been locally entertained  of thejmine, and there is practically  no doubt but that the bond will be  taken up in due course.  . M. ^Lisbet left for France on last  night's boat, but exipeots to be back  here in a few months'  time  Gennevoise will  for a while.  M.  remain  in Nelson  NELSON MEN'S NEW TOWN  Named After General Wauehope.  F. S. Clements of the local firm of  Green & Clements,    has  returned  from a trip into the now mining  district at the  headwaters of the  Kettle  River,  where  he  surveyed  the   new  townsite   of Wauehope.  The townsite of Wauehope is situated about ��o miles up Fire yalley,  almost where it catches the Kettle  river, and it promises to be a very  busy  point this spring.    It is the  center of a new district in wliich  over 150> locations were made last  summer and upon which considerable development work will be per-^  formed this season.    Tho townsite  has been named after the late general Wauehope of the Black Watch,  who fell in the South African campaign, and is owned by Fred Williamson, P. E. AVilson and George  Doyle of this city, and E. Strickland of New Denver.   The work of  building  has   been   already   commenced.    Bert  Lambert,   who ran  the hotel at Slocan Junction, is at  work upon Wauchope's first hotel; ,  the Thomas    Brothers  of   Cherry  Creek are taking in a packing outfit;  O. Watson of Vernon, is putting up  an assay office; aud a general store  will  be opened about the  first of  May.     Of the   townsite some   10  acres have been surveyed into lots  30x 120, with 75-foot streets and 20-  foot lanes, and the management' of  the townsite interests will be looked  after by Fred Williamson.  A trail will be built at once from  Wauehope to the Eureka, up Eight-  mile creek, and about four miles  distant. On this property a 45-foot  tunnel has been driven across the  ledge, and another will be started  about 50 feet lower. The present  indications are that woik will be '  carried on continuously all summer  upon at least six of the properties, ������  and as uniformly high gold values  are received a very^ lively season  may be expected.  KERR &~C0MPANY  OPEN  POLITICAL   POINTERS.-  David Mai'k Carley has become  ono of the Mine Owners' Own, after  fighting shy for several months.  The Hall Mines, Limited, will not  bo able to make any contribution  to the campaign fund at this  election.  It is reported that the Liberals of  Ivuslo are sizing up secretary Sutherland of the Kaslo Board of Trade  as a political possibility.

Kerr & Company formally opened  their handsome store in the Madden  block yesterday, thereby adding au  important business enterprise to  Nelson's growing list of up-to-date  establishments. Throughout the  day 'the premises were thronged  with visitors, who examined and  admired the splendidly assorted  stock of dry goods, ladies' ready-  made clothing and millinery.

Shoe Store  Don't Smoke a Cheap Pipe  y  See  THURMAN, Tobacconist;  Whatever, faults may be laid at  the door of the Ross government of  Ontario, it cannot be said that it is  lacking in progressiveness.   Ontario  cannot be classed with British Columbia as a mining province, but it  has a government which is determined to make the most of its possibilities.    For this reason, with infinitely less to go upon, the province of Ontario bids fair to realize  more advantage from such mineral  wealth as it possesses   than does  British Columbia, from what is generally termed its illimitable mineial  resources.    What an  example Ontario  has  set in its policy of en-  - eouragiug  the development  of its  base minerals, and their reduction  in the province. , British Columbia  has iron  deposits, equal to if not  .superior to those of Ontaiio, but  who ever heard of a public man hv  British Columbia seriously advocating government assistance for their  development?   The result is Ontario  * has thriving  industrial  communities,  to  mark  the preseuco of its  iron mines, while those of British  Columbia a re unheard of until some  newspaperman stumbles   over the  fact '  of    their     existence,    and  dilates upon their wealth producing  possibilities.   Then in  the matter  of the Ontario government's nickel  policy.     Like tho-public   men   in  British Columbia those of Ontario  recognized that it would be to the  advantage  of the province if the  nickel of tho province was refined  in    the   province instead   of in  Newark, New Jersey. Theie was  one difference between tho public  men of the two provinces however.  When difficulties were encountered  in British Columbia the project was  dropped ; but when they were encountered in Ontario the public men  set themselves to overcome them,  nnd they did. The result will be  that in Ontario the nickel of the  province will be refined in the province, and by an output tax upon,the  nickel mines, with rebates for home  refining, the government will have  a measure of control over the entire  process of mining and refining;  while in this province not only will  the refining be done in the Tnited  States, but the chief industry of the  province will continue to be at the  mercy,of the smelter trust. This  contrast marks the difference- in  having a province administered by  statesmen and in having it administered by politicians.   ��fc  " labor unions." The only thing  worthy.-of notice in the above circular is that the. settlement arrived  at in the Slocan was satisfactory to  the London & British Columbia  Goldfields. This being so there no  longer exists any excuse for the  London & B. C. Goldfields, and its  kindred companies, refusing to  recognize in the Nelson district a  wage scale which it has recognized  in the Slocan, and which it assures  its London stockholders is satisfactory.      It is announced in London that  the Loudon 6c British Columbia  Goldfields will shortly declare a  dividend of twenty per cent. It is  safe to say that the stockholders iu  the London & British Columbia  Goldfields will receive a forty per  cent dividend when the compauy  forsakes politics and gives its undivided attention to mining.  ATTORN-EY-GRNKRAf.,     QjHSON��   is  being abused by a section of the  Conservative press because   of his  connection with the capitalists who  propose to establish a nickel refinery and steel plant iu Ontario.   It  is insinuated that the attorney-general's connection with, the scheme,  and  the government's   subsequent  determination to encourage nickel  refining, " is    in ����� itself   suspicious.  Suppose 4t is admitted that attorney-general   Gibson  realized   that  the Ontario legislature could be induced   to   foster   the   refining   of  nickel,  and  upon  the  strength of  this induced capitalists to embark  the_n_ec_essary__capital iu _the -enterprise, in what way has the province  of Ontario suffered?   A man who  has head enough on him  to see an  opening^for a great industrial enterprise and induces capitalists to  take it up is surely of greater service to the piovince than the man  who devotes his entire energies to  squabbling in   the legislature.    If  British  Columbia  had  a few men  like    attorney-general     Gibson,   it  would see more progress and less  politico,   feomctliing   of   which   it  stands very "much in need.  side with the men from England,  Ireland, Scotland and the colonic?,  so- should the fallen remain side by  side in the land0where they securely  planted the flag. Distinguished  British generals ask no better burial  services than the battlefields where  they fall, and, new as the present  experience is to us, we should appreciate the sentiment of our race  aud deem it fitting that our soldiers  should be buried at or near the  place where by tlieir high courage  they contributed so much to a  signal victory. When the war is  over and Avon���when a new system  of government is established in all  South Africa under which all men  will be free and equal���and our  men come home and the calling of  the roll reveals the total losses, it  will then bo possible to make some  fitting recognition of their sacrifices  and our regard. Instead of being  brought home for burial across the  thousands of miles of this country's  width, at far-scattered points, they  will rest in comradeship where they  fell, and on the spot Canada could  aud should erect a granite shaft engraved with their names, and the  particulars of the part they bore in  the battle fought there, so well and  briefly expressed in the despatch  from lord Roberts'to the war office.  >��* -^asv ��^ ���**.��>^ ���**����, ���>����������>����. ��>BK '^s -Vv^k ��>*^ ���,*BK  w  w  iff  iff  iff  Hi  ��r'S-  00 .fi* . 00 .  _SSir_^'&&~-  00. /  4**  Hi  Hi  Hi  SEND  9��  Hi  Hi  Hi  FOR  <1��  <l>  Hi  Hi  SAMPLES  m  Hi  %9  0* ��� fi* ���___[���_*!'0s* ��� 0* 'fi*'. fi*  ���"^ ��� ,!��S^ . ^ft. .

Camp McKinnky, March 11.-  -To  the Editor of the Victoria Colonist:  In j'oxti' issue of March 10th I see  nn interesting interview- witli J.  Roderick Robertson of Nelson on  how the miners live in the great  miniug districts of the Kootenay,  and I would be much obliged if  you would allow me to attempt to  present the facts from a miner's  point of view.  From September 19th, 1S9S to  June 1st, 1S99, I worked ��� at the  "Whitewater, amine iu the Siocan  "which is partly owned by the Lcm-  ' don & Biitish Columbia GJoldfields  Company, and under the management of Mr. Robertson. During  1898 he generally came up to the  mine on pay-clay, and T saw him  different times though I never saw  him go underground, and his information about bunk-houses and  bath-rooms seemed to be obtained  secondhand.  If the ladies of the Coast supply  literature to the mines I can assure  them it never gets past the company offices. At the Whitewater  we got the old numbers of the  magazines. They came from Lamont ��fc ,-;Young of Kaslo, and wo  always understood that we got  ivthem through the kindness of Mr.  Hill, the company's clerk.  I do not know who was responsible for the board at the AVhito-  water, but 1 am glad to say .that it'  was - first-class, though on fresh  milk and other delicacies Mr. Robertson's imagination gets the better  of him.      _ ,  For $l-a day any mine in this  country near a railroad can afford  - to give .first-class board. The Slocan'Star at 'Sandon <once sublet  their boarding contract for SO  cents a day, and the contractor  made a profit. ���  At the he Roi ami War Etigle  mines at llossltiud,1 and "lately at  the Payne mine, near Sandon, bedding is furnished, but at the others  a miner must supply his own mattress and blankets, ile finds his  own towels, sometiiiies his soap,  and has to pay for getting his  clothes washed, besides an occasional bath for himself,  Boots cannot be bought in these  towns for from $2.50 to $4; such  shoos are very little used underground. Outside of Itosshmd the  average price for miners' shoes is  $ft, while long rubber boots cost $7,  #S and $ 10,  | These mino_mauagers have  a-pc���  culiar way of looking at the sunny  side of wages. They talk of the  high wages for machine men and  forget to say that there are very  few machines used in the Slocan  Alines. J think Mr. Robertson was  thinking of i}io Montezuma mine  near Kaslo when he spoke of men  working for s  men  worked  money. It is needless to add that  today the shares are practically  ���worthless. Men working in the  Payne or other big dividend payers  get few chances to take shares in  payiuoiifc.  '- It is nonsense to talk about a  youug man working eight or ton  years in one, of these mines and  tluih acquiring a, capital of from  $5000 to $8000. Men can not .stand  it. Outside of the isolation of their  lives and tho monotony of their  daily routine, tho work in wet  Xilaces. in bad air and dangerous  ground is so detrimental to their  health that out of an average of  one hundred men Charlie Starr and  myself were the only ones who lost  lio time through sickness or other  can&es during that eight, months  and a half. As the boys say, the  trail was kept warm with men coming to and leaving that mine.  If these men wonder why the  best miners leave this country the  joason is not far to seek. In the  Cucur d'Aleuos the wages are $3.50  per day. In Butte, Montana, every  man underground is paid $.'5.50 for  dight hours, aud the same wages  are paid iu the Republic mine in  "Washington. It seems strange that  ihe Canadian owners of the Republic mine are content to pay that' tdtef/bom,  wage there, while in their own  country their great ambition is to  cut the wages of the miners.  Personally, I feel sure that'if the  Whitewater management had met  tlieir meu in a reasonable spirit the  men would have worked right  along. But nothing was said to the  men. Notices were posted announcing the reduction in wages, and to  crown all, George Alexander of  Kaslo, who had been appointed  Slocan manager for the mines in  which t!ie London & British Columbia Goldfields Compauy were interested, commenced to issue time-  checks, payable in Kaslo, and  notified the Whitewater merchants  not to cash those time-checks.  Time-check No. 1 was a peach. It  was for two dollars and some cents.  We figured that it would take the  man two days and cost him,over $5  to get it cashed. Then we organized.  Mr. Robertson speaks in very  general terms. He gives no in-"  stances. He forgets about the deep  snow and the loneliness of those  steep mountain sides. He says nothing of the snowslides. On the  11th of last June he did not see a  man's body dug out of the Noble  Five snowslide, where it had lain  six months. ��� The other day a slide  in the same place caught three men,  two of them being killed and the  other badly injured. Every winter  since the Slocan was settled the  snowslides have claimed their victims. There may be sunshine, but  there are also shadows in a miner's  life, and while I think the miners  and the miners' unions of this country have made mistakes, I cannot  see why the mine owners should  have acted as high handed as they  have for the last year.  I hope, Mr. Editor, that you will  haA'e the fairness to publish this,  and thank you in advance for anticipated space.        William Letts.  The Queen at Herbert Hospital.

J  The "William Gooding case was  finally concluded yesterday when  the young man waa sentenced to six  months' imprisonment in the provincial jail by judge Forin.' There  were charges of forgery and theft  against Gooding, and on each the  sentence was six months to run concurrently. The young man pleaded  guilty on both charges.  Judge Forin had several criminal  cases before him in chambers yesterday. Sanderson, the C. P. It.  porter, elected for a speedy trial  and pleaded not guilty. His trial  was fixed for April 3rd. .* Judd, the  Kimberley man charged with theft,  pleaded not guilty and his trial will  take place at Fort Steele on a date  to be named. H. H. Bowden did  not come up, his solicitors, Galliher  & Wilson, having a��ked for an adjournment which was granted.  At the mining recorder's office  the following matters were recorded  yesterday: Gilbert Peoueof Ymir,  transfers a half interest in the Apex  claim on the divide between Hidden  and Porcupine creeks, to Owen  Boyer and John Stinson of Ymir;  and Samuel Brisbois of Xmir, sold  a quarter interest in the Smuggler  Fraction claim on "Wild Horse creek,  to Thomas Moriarty.  J. F. Holden has transferred his  interest in the Bradford mineral  claim located on the north slope of  Morning mountain to L. L. Merrifield. Mr. Merrifield is a director  of the gas works and largely interested iu the Venus property.  Through the efforts of the provincial organizer Miss Murcutt, a  branch of the "Women's Christian  Temperance Union has again been  organized iu Nelson. The society  starts Avith a membership of 20  ladies and 14 gentlemen, the latter  being-honorary members. At the  -initial meeting Miss M. Cross was  appointed president, and the balance of the officers will be appointed on Thursday next.  A meeting of tho executive of the  Nelson Liberal Association will be  held in Dr. Arthur's office, on Saturday, March 24th, at S o'clock p.m.  . Carlo Deeeista, the Italian who  left town rather than appear in the  police court for not settling his  road tax, was brought "before  magistrate Ciease yesterday. He  was fined S5 and costs, tl e latter  amounting to $0,  A gang of Kalians who were at  work on a mudslide on the Slocan  River branch of the Canadian  Pacific have a grievance against the  loadmaster on that road. They  claim thoy weie hired as emergency  men at $1.60 a day and board, and  that siflsr working seven days in  clearing the road they were paid  off' at the rate of $1.00 a day, from  which $1 a day Was deducted as  boaid. Even Italians do nofcJikc.  such treatment.  //"The Nelson rifle company has  suspended drill for the present.  Regular parades will be resumed  when the instructor ou the Maxim  gun puts in an appearance. Up to  date nothing fiuthor has been  heard in this matter since the telegram ^\as received from district  headquarters asking when tlje instructor Avas wanted.  The mcmbois of tho firo department opened their bachelors" mess  with a jolly little banquet lasc  night. The fire fighters turned out  to a man and partook of an inviting dinner, well cooked and well  served. The success of the mess  was enthusiastically toasted, and  the evening spent in song, speech  and story. Captains Chambers and  Steele and lieutenants Bradley and  Campbell were the speakers of the  evening.  Frank Summers, who was alleged  lo have skipped out of Town with a  purse containing $2.) and an unpaid  board bill, came back yesterday to  face tho music. He denies any  knowledge of tlio money alleged to  be missing and wants to have the  matter cleared up so that no suspicion .shall rest upon him. Summers  admits laxity iu the matter of  settling liis board bill and gives  this as his reason for leaving the  city quietly and quickly. On the  train yesterday morning, en route  to Slocan City, he pi eked up Tny  TiuiiUSE containing the paragraph  regarding the swearing out of ��  warrant against him.   The young  man immediately came back and  gave himself up, confident that he  can clear himself.  It, F. Green, M.P.P., of-Kaslo, was  in Nelson yesterday on his way to  the Slocan Lake section of his riding. When here he had an interview with John Andrew Mara, who  is a strong party-line Conservative,  although up ito a month or two he  has been against party lines in this  province.  A small boy was found weeping  copiously near the Sherbrooke hotel  yesterday afternoon. Tho youngster would not tell his name or even  speak, and a kind-hearted Frenchman, who had bought sweets for  tho lad, brought him to tho police  ollice. Finally he was claimed by a  citizen. This is perhaps the first  real "lost boy" case on record in  Nelson.  A neat and useful arrangement  has been devised at the fire hall  whereby the ringing of the telephone bell at night sounds a large  gong in the how-addition aud lights  all the incandescent lamps. The  practical utility of the device can  readily be grasped.  The Nelson Minstrels will give  their postponed performance this  evening, and the curtain Avill ring  -up at S.30 sharp. It has been decided to denote the proceeds of the  concert to the relief of those rendered destitute by the fire at Kuskonook, instead of to the Canadian  Patriotic''Fund, as originally intended.  Joseph Podvin was brought in  from Slocan City yesterday charged  with assault.  The baseball meeting did not  materialize last night, owing to the  fireball being in use for other purposes. The meeting will be held on  Tuesday night next and a full turnout of enthusiasts is desired, as the  election of officers and other important business is ou  the docket.
