 DAILY  EDITION   BY  MAiL  FIVE   DOLLARS A YEAR  WEEKLY EDITION  BY MAIL  TWO  DOLLARS A YEAR  EIGHTH YEAR.  NELSON":  FRIDAY MORNING, MARCH  1) 1900.  PRICE FIVE CENTS.  BURIED   IN   HiS   TUNNEL  May Be Dick Boetciicr's Fate.  Kaslo, March 7.���It is  rare indeed that a season goes by without  a miner losing his life in the Slocan.  Snowslides arc the chief danger to  be feared at this time of the year,  but  sometimes a  fall  of rock  will  add  to  the  casualty roll.    Miners  here  are  very   much  afraid   that  Richard  O.  Boetcher has   died   a  horrible    death,   away    from    all  friends,  miles from  all  assistance.  It is several  days since anything'  has  beeu  heard of Boetcher.    He  .went up to his claim on the south  fork of Kaslo creek some time siuce.  ���}IIo had  driven a tuunel over  100  ��-, feet and was starting to crosscut.  The man who is working a near-by  claim, being surprised at seeing nothing  of Boetcher  for  some time  went over to find out'what had become    of   him.      He   found   some  tracks, but thoy were several days  old.    He  went up  to  the miners'  shack aud saw that it had not been  inhabited for several days.    Then  he went   into   the   tunnel.    Some  way in he found that the roof had  caved in, aud that a carload of rock  was "partly buried.    Prom appearances it seems that Boetchei' must  have been Avorking near the ore car  and  may have been buried   when  the rock fell.    There  is some hope,  however, that lie may have escaped,   as   a   short   distance   beyond  where  the   cave-in  occurred   it  is  open overhead, and if ho had boon  in that special part of the tunnel he  could have crawled out.  As soon as the news of tho feared  fatality was brought to Kaslo^ a  party of experienced miners left for  the scene, which is near the Black  Fox mine. They will get out all  tho fallen rock and will be able to  make known tomorrow whether  Boetcher has perished or not.  HYPOCRITICAL  SPEECH BY  who retired. Thereupon commandant De Kokwe arrived with a flag  of truce. A magistrate who went  from Kenhardt to meet him was  immediately made prisoner, and the  rebels then poured into the town,  hoisted the white flag, proclaimed  the district to be Free State territory, sang the Volkslied and began  commandering. The magistrate  was detained for trial at Bloemfontein. The refugee says the natives  are severely treated.  THE QUEEN DRIVES THROUCH  Oom Paul.  L'ltreTOWA, March C.���A special  dispatch from Bloemfontein says  that piesident Kruger, while ad-  , dressing a crowd of people daid:  "Although God is testing our people, my peisonal opinion io that the  limit of the test i.s nearly reached.  [f the people are sustained by  faith in the time of adversity, God  will soon turn the tide in our favor.  Jf we have strong faith in God, He  will surely deliver us. Tho God of  ^'deliverance of the olden' times is  the same God now."    '  The speech of "the venerable president brought tears to, the eyes of  jnen and women alike. The Free  State Tolkslied' (notional anthem)  was then sung.

SERVICES OF PAUNCEFOTE  N Are Eulogized.  London, March S.���Iu the house  of lords today lord Newton advocated the retention of lord Pauucefote as British ambassador at  Washington, and asked whether, in  view of the valuable services of lord  Pauucefote, the advisability of prolonging his tenure of office would  not be considered, adding:  "The task of maintaining our relations on their present happy footing is not likely to prove less difficult in the immediate future. In  addition to the questions of great  delicacy uoav pending, we have to  look forward to the presidential  election, which is productive of political eccentricities unknown in less  enterprising countries."  The speaker also said ho thought  the present moment was not a  happy one for a change.  Lord Salisbury said  lord Newton  had done  what  the French  called  "breaking in an open door," for the  measure which he had recommended  had been taken some days ago. The  premier added:   "1  entirely agree  with any   eulogy passed   on  lord  Pauucefote, and I have shown  this  in the course taken in extending his  tenure of office.    The only observation which I have to make  is  that  the   question    implies    that    this  extension     is      a'     reward      for  valuable    services.       1    think     it  is   rather   the    other    way.       It  is to lord Pauucefote that we have  to express our thanks  that lie  has  been kind enough to undertake the  work for another period.   We have  every   cause    to   express  to   lord  Pauucefote our gratitude that at a  critical time, and when his remarkable experience iiud singular aiiti-  tude for the peculiar duties  of  his  -office render it-desirable  that  he  should continue in it. he has consented to do so..  Lord Kimberley, the Liberal  leader in the house of lords, associated himself with the eulogy  passed on loid Pauucefote".  THOUSAJsIf BOERS ARE  Now in Full Flight.  Osfontein, March 7.���[Wednesday.] ���Lord Roberts' movement to-  day again thoroughly surprised,  outwitted and outmaucouvered tho  Boci _ who fled a jmost withoutiiring  a. shot. The plan of battle was as  follows: General Colville's division  extended along the north, bank,  general Tucker held the centre reserve and the Guards brigade had  the centre advance.' General Kelly-  Kenny's division was ordered to  make a huge flanking movement on  the Boers' left, following general  French who was instructed to move  southeast until opposite the Boer  flank a nd then swi ng around tho rear.  Every movement was admirably  executed and entirely successful.  The Boers wore surprised, as was  e\ ident from the state of the deserted camp. Twice the British  cavalry were almost in a position  to charge, bnt they admit that they  were foiled by the inaweuvring of  the Boers.  When' last seen general French  was pursuing the enemy vigorously. He was "between them and  Bloemfontein, about eleven miles  from the right wing. General Colville merely demonstrated against a  high mountain occupied by the  Transvaal troops, who are fleeing in  consequence of the Free Staters  retiring from south of the river. It  is impossible at present to give the  Boers' numbers but it is estimated  that they reach 14,000 all of whom  are now in flight.  Another Boer Lie.  Pretoria, March (5���Via Lorenzo  Marque/., March 8.���It is olTfieinlly  stated here that on Sunday last  there wa? heavy fighting at Dordrecht, that the British were repulsed with great loss, and that the  London's Streets.  London, March 8.���A quaint  ceremony occurred when the  queen's carriage stopped at the  Temple step, when the lord mayor,  Mr. A. A. N. Newton, solemnly  handed her majesty the sword of  state. With a smile the queen  touched it and returned it to the  chief executive, saying: "Thaukyou  for all that my city has done." To  this the mayor replied: ."Your gracious majesty's words will forever  be treasured in my heart."  When the Life Guards trotted on,  the purple and ermine and gorgeous  uniforms of the marshall aiid sheriffs and aldermen with the gold  laced flunkeys and lumbering state  coaches were left behind, and the  queen drove quickly along the embankment which was black with  cheering ' people. . Accompanying  her majesty was the princess (T/hrist-  ian of Scleswig Holstein and princess Henry of Battenburg. The  Life Guards trotted on through the  great streets of the city which  were everywhere thronged. So  quickly were the horses driven,  that the crowds scarcely had a  chance to cheer before the constantly bowing monarch had passed  out of sight.  By five o'clock the queen, going  by way of Holboriie and Oxford  street had returned to Buckingham  Palace. The drive had been so  hastily planned that no organized  attempts at decoration had been  carried out, but considering the  short space of time it was astonishing to see the number of flags which  appeared along the route followed  by her majesty. Many American  flags were displayed by American  concerns and Americans on the  street.  London, March S.���The queens'  entry into London on the .commencement of her visit^ to the  metropolis was marked by scenes  of great enthusiasm, unparalleled  since "the" jubilee" celebration, and  ^tho cheers that made -the miry  streets ring were almost as much  in honor of the British victories iu  South Africa as they were vociferous tributes of a loyal people to a  monarch whose womanly sympathy  lias been strikingly shown since the  war began.  For hours before the queen even  started for London crowds gathered in the streets '.which had been  announced as her route through  the metropolis, and which were decorated with flags. It was foggy  and cold, but none seemed to care.  At Paddington the railway station  had been cleared of the geueral  public, but, outside the lines, the  people "waited. W_h.cn the train  from Windsor arrived at 12.30 a  tremendous cheer went up. Her  majesty came down the station  platform leaning on the arm of a  turbaued Indian attendant, and entered an open landau, in  which~-also~~sat " princess Henry  of Battenbery ancl princess  Victoria of Sehleswig-Holstein.  There was a continuous roar of  cheers and windows where hundreds were jammed, waving flags all  the way to Buckingham Palace.  In the house of. commons today,  John Redmond, the Irish nationalist leader, declared the Irish people  have received with gratification tlio  announcement that her majesty  has directed that the Shamrock be  worn' by .the Irish regiments  on St. Patrick's day, adding that  the Irish people would welcome this  graceful recognition of tho valor of  the Irish race Avherever exhibited,  and would treat with respect the  venerable sovereign about to visit  the Irish shore, well knowing that  on this occasion no attempt would  be made to give the visit auy party  significance, and ,that the chivalrous hospitality would not be taken  to mean any abatement of their demands for national rights, which  they would continue to press until  conceded. Mr. Redmond was loudly  cheered.  his paper dated Pretoria jail, March  2nd, via Lorenzo Marquez, describing the misleading news given to  to the Boers by their .officials regarding the course of the war. He  adds that great dissatisfaction exists among tho Boers, as supplies of  food, especially meats coffee and  sugar, are very irregular, and many  threaten to return to  their farms.  OPENING OF THE HUDSON'S  GARRISON iN MAFEKING IS  Having a Hard Time.  Mafeking, February 19.���Horse  meat now composesv a considerable  part of our rations, '^here is little  grumbling. The first pinch of the  siege is over aiid the town has settled grimly to stay it, out. What  may be typhoid malaria has broken  out iu the women's laager, and dysentry, due to the absence of vegetables, is rife among the garrison.  We are thrown upon our own resources. Such luxuries as we had  are exhausted, or have been 'com-,  mandered for the hospitals, which  are filled to overflowing. The children's graveyard, close to the women's laager, grows weekly as the  young lives are cut short prematurely by shell and fever.  We look with hope deferred for  relief. The cheerfulness which was  characteristic of the early days of  the siege has almost deserted us,  the men preferring to remain at  their posts rather than move about  and work up an appetite, which  cannot be satisfied.  The natives are' in the worst  plight. Those who are unable to  obtain work are allowed a small  handful of meal daily. Many, braving the danger, wander about tho  town with hungry faces. If they  find work they arc generally too  weak to perform it.  From their advanced positions  the Boers rake the streets aud the  market square. It is impossible to  dodge their shells. FiVen the headquarters moss' fures'Steuutily. Two  hundred and'ninety -persons have  been killed, wounded or died of  disease. The garrison is so small  that it would be criminal to make  its weakness public, but there is  never as much as a whimper. If no  one has suggested the possibility of  surrender, it is because we do not  -mean to get beaten-, and we are  cheerfully enduring the hardships  of today rather than to make a*  surrender in auy degree possible  tomorrow. '  French's Movement.  London, March 9.���The Standard  publishes the following dispatch  from Poplar Grove dated March  8 th: "The movements of the  mounted men were somewhat too  rapid for the supporting infantry,  and as a result the Boer position  was turned before the main body  could strike effectively. The Boers  fell back precipitately and extending���to- the -' Southeast, - fchey-  ehecked the advance of the Britibh  cavalry with a heavy rifle fire at  300 yards' range.- - Accordingly  general French moved southward  and outflanked them again, but the  Boers repeated their tactics."  Kruger's Efforts Vain.  Poplar. Gkovb, Thursday, March  8.���-President Kruger, who i.s far in  tho rear at present, yestorday tried  to stop thi' reti eating Boer.c, who  refused to stay. The Blocinfonfein  police tried tu stop the retreat of  the Free Staters, but thoy declared  that they were not willing to fight  any longer, and they blamed president Stej'n. The Russian and  Dutch military attaches arrived at  tho British camp yostoiday.  Bay Company's Store.  The opening of the Hudson's Bay  new stores yesterday was tho success the management hoped and the  public expected. The handsome  exterior was not belied by the appearance of the interior, which was  very handsomely fitted up aud was  crowded with visitors.  On the ground floor are the dry  goods, grocery, cigar aud crockery  departments, and upstairs are the  carpet and , millinery departments  and more crockery. In the basement is a liquor cellar of large  dimensions, probably the largest  and best appointed in southern  British Cdlumbia. On the right  hand sidfe is the retail department,  iu the centre the bonded warehouse and on the left the large furnace which warms the entire  building.  Light refreshments were served  upstairs, and very many people, especially ladies, partook- of  the company's hospitality, aud  Ilerr Steiner's orchestra discoursed  excellent music the while.  The Nelson branch of the Hudson's Bay Company appears to  carry a large and well assorted  stock of all descriptions, and is said  by those who knoAV the Coast to  compare favorably with the Vancouver institution. The whole was  lit by incandescent gas jets, and  presented a very fine appearance as  the evening came on. The new  store is distinctly an acquisition to  the town and is well worthy of  Nelson and the big company of  which it is a branch.  NELSON  LOCAL NEWS.  Miss E. Dairevau, _ milliner for  Fred Irvine & Co., arrived home  yesterday from a three months'  visit to Montreal;'Toronto, New  York and Boston, where she attended all the great millinery open-  for the purpose of gleaning all the  latest modes and ideas.

Ciiief  Jarvis goes down this morning to  bring Gooding back.  wlien he received a telegram from  special constable Beer stating that  he was leaving Spokane with Bowden for Nelson ou yesterday morning's train. Bowden apparently  thought better of his determination  not to come back, and waived extradition. He and his captor arrived ou the delayed train this  morning.  The mud slide, at the Seven  Devils on the Spokane Falls <fe  Northern line proved a greater obstacle than was expected. There  was no train from the South on  Wednesday, and no train left for  Northport yesterday morning. The  long delayed train with two days'  passengers and mails arrived however about three o'clock this  morning.  W. GOODING FORCES A CHECK  And is Arrested.  William Gooding, a young man  who is well known about the city,  has got himself into trouble through  forging his employer's signature to  a check for $39, and passing the  ���worthless note at Brown's clothing,  store on Baker street. Gooding  lef t town in a hurry, but was arrested yesterday at Northport,  where he will be held uutil chief  Jarvis brings him back.  Gooding will be remembered by  everyone who saw the show given  by McEwen the hypnotist as the  little fellow who was on the stage  nightly and made a particularly  good subject. He was employed by  the Nelson Sodawater Company as  driver of their delivery wagon.  On Tuesday night he received his  pay, and the same night  forged Norman Cummin's name  to a check and passed it. Gooding  had done business at the store, and  was well acquainted there, so the  cheek was not questioned. He took  the train on Wednesday morning  for Northport, and when the forgery  was detected and reported to chief  Jarvis, a mespage was sent to H. ���C.  Cummins, the quarantine officer,  who is a brother of Gooding's employer.    He located the young fel  on  Lead Burns,  Lead, South Dakota, March 8. ���  A fire which broke out this morning  in the Dalkenburg saloon consumed  forty buildings before it was extinguished and caused a loss which  i.s estimated at $500,000.

An interesting incident .transpired at yesterday's session of the  license commissioners for the Nelson district. An application- for a  hotel license was made by J. A.  Bellefeuille, tho point designated  being Mountain View, near Ymir.  The application was opposed by the  Ymir Gold Mines, Limited, the  Black Cock Gold' -Mines, Limited,  and the owners of the Roanoke  mines. Mr. Fraser, of the Ymir  company, appeared to urge the objections raised, and the commissioners finally decided to refuse the  application.  F. W.

Paws, March 8.���The celebrated  Theatre Francais burned down today, and is practically a total loss.  Tho lack of steam fire engines wa.s  largely responsible for the rapid  spread of the fire.

Queen to Visit Ireland,  London, March 7.���8:10 p.m.- It  has been decided that queen Victoria will visit Ireland next month,  staying at the vice regal lodge in  Dublin, which has been placed at  her majesty's disposal by the viceroy, the earl of Cadogan.  THE SITE OF THE NEW DEPOT  Is Decided Upon."  The party of visiting C. P. R.  officials left last night over tho  Crow's Nest road for the east.  During the day they went over tho  ground about the C. P. R. depot  and determined on the program for  the immediate future.  William Whyte, manager of lines  west of Fort William, said last  night in regard to the afternoon's  conference: "We have decided to  proceed with the improvements to  the company's property'" in Nelson  at once. The plans for the work  are _almost completed, and ground  will be broken as soon as these are  finished. At any rate, the whole  work is to be completed within tho  year. The new depot will be located at the intersection of Baker  and Slocan streets, and in the rearrangement of the yards the main  line track will be run around just  in front of the building. On the  rising ground west of the present  depot the new freight sheds will  be located, a building amply  sufficient. to meet all demands  for spme years hence being contemplated. Further toward the  lake will be a round house and  machine house, with coal bunkers  in the immediate vicinity. The rearranged yards will contain some  three miles of track, and the estimated outlay for grading is $30,-  000. It is impossible to say just at  the moment what amount will bo  expended on the new depot, but it  will be modern in every respect.  "Superintendent Troup and  his  staff, and Mr. Gutelius, the recently  appointed engineer for the Koote-  na3's, are to be located in  the new  depot,  but  until  it  is    completed  their offices will be  located  in the  residence formerly occupied by Mr.  Beasley on Baker street.     The city  ticket, freight and'telegraph offices  are to be centrally located up tow u, -  and  negotiations  are   pending for  premises.    Obvious reasons prevent  my divulging further information on  -tlio   last   mentioned   point.-'   You ,  may expect further and'practical  *  developments in a month from the  preseno time, as. I anticipate that  active   operations    will     be   com- .  menced within that period."  HONOR TO BE GIVEN WHERE  Honor is Due.  London, March 8.���The government leader in the house" of commons, Mr. A. J, Balfour, replying to  a question today, said tlio recommendation for tlio formation for a  regiment of Royal Irish Guards, of  which the first colonelcy \yould be  given to lord Roberts, would be  submitted to the queen and undoubtedly would be favorably considered.  The afternoon < press comments  on the same _]iuq_as_that_of__the _ .  morning papers in pointing out the  great significance of tiie queen'1*  visit to Ireland and of her order iu  regard to the soldiers wearing tlio  shamrock on 4St. Patrick's day.  The following from the Times and  from the Radical-Liberal Chronicle  may be taken as examples of llio  whole trend of the > London editorials.    The Times says:  "The queen, it is evident, has  been deeply moved by the courage  and devotion of her Irish troops,  and has been thinking of the means  by which sho can brvst convey to  them and their fellow countrymen  the gratitude "she feels for their  service* so generously and so loyally rendered to her throne.* We  cannot doubt the .masses of Irish  people will cordially appreciate the  spirit in which the royal visit will  be made. The queen goes among  them as .the representative of no  party and no political cause. She  goca to pay nn honor and a compliment to the Jiishineu of the  nation."  The Chronicle says: "Tho motive  which prompted the visit doubtless  is a desire to see and be seen by the  Irishmen in their homes and to contribute directly to that final rccon,-  ciliation \\ Inch both nations equally  desire, but which tho Nationalists ���  seem to strenuously resist. Another reason, more political, though  scarcely stronger, exists in the wish  of her majesty to do special honor  to that part of her dominions which *  ha�� furnished so many of her most  gallant and devoted soldier*. Nothing could bo bettor inspired aud  more auspicious than this two-fold  message to Ireland of the queen's  consideration aud esteem." THE TRIBUNE:  NELSON B. C  FRIDAY, MARCH 9 1900  ,1  15  I *.

Soft, pliable,  but strong uppers at prices  ranging from $1.25, $1.50  and up to $4.50  Lillie Brothers  ��to f&xibxxnz.  It is rather amusing to  hear the  talk of the politicians.     The  generalissimo of the Rossland  contingent, when in Nelson, wanted to  know who   would   likely   be the.  choice of the people of this  riding,  and if Bob Green could be downed  in the Slocan.    For the benefit  of  the generalissimo aud the men who  are paying his expenses, it  can  be  stated that all the money tho mine  owners  can  raise  will not change  the ����� ill of the people in the Slocan  and Nelson ridings of West  Kootenay.   Bob Green can  be  elected in  Sloca^i over any man that  can be  pitted against him, simply because  he  is  one  of the people.    He has  lived long enough in  Kootenay to  know the calibre of most of the  .mine owners and mine managers of  his  district,  and   he  knows   that  they were all round good fellows  when they had to rub  up  against  poor men or go to the wall;   but  since they have become managers  with a cap M, most  of  them have  become  snobs  with  a  big S.     In  Nelson district, what is the matter  with electing either Frank Fletcher  or John Elliot or  G. Frank Beer?  They are  all comparatively   poor  men, and have not hesitated to side  with the mine workers  as  against  the mine managers.    There is one  rthiug   the   Rossland   wire  pullers  will  have  learned after .the next  election, and 'that is, that the people  of Kootenay do not  hanker to  be  vassals   of   tho   men   that   would  dominate  their    workmen 'as  the  Dunsmuirs do theirs on  Vancouver  Island.     ' t.  Disym'i MuiiPiiv of Ashcroft, who  desiics to succeed Charles A. Sum-  ^lin as West Yale's representative iu  the legislature, is probably the first  candidate to formally enter tho  ���field. I"poii the assurance that Mr.  Semlin would not again seek reelection the electors of Ashcroft  got out an extensively signed re-  quisitiou'in favor of Murphy, with  the result that the choice- of the  electors consented to accept a nomination. Dennis Murphy is a native  born British Columbian, is about  thirty years old, aud makes a living  in Ashcroft as a lawyer. lie will  "oppose "Joe-Martin "unci "probably  follow*'. C. Cotton.  that of the entire legislature. The  task which Martin has set himself  on the Island may therefore be  summarized by saying that he purposes invading a section already  hostile to him personally, and in addition to this encountering the active opposition of the two political  parties, the Dunsmuirs and that  section of the labor party .which is  led by Ralph Smith. It is not likely  in view of such a combination,  that Martin will carry a single scat  on the Island, save possibly one of  the Victoria districts, in the event  of Yates and Eberts coming together. The Island was [Mr. Turner's stronghold, and it may be  counted upon remaining so. Martin's outlook on the Mainland is not  over hopeful. It is the late government's stronghold. Leaving Cassiar  out of the matter, what is now the  Cotton party rep resents sixteen out  of the twenty-two seats. It is going back to the country as a party,  and to secure anything like a following Martin would have to capture the entire row of seats. It is  too great a change even for Martin  to effect.    When The Tiwhune 'announced  that it was opposed to the introduction of federal party linos   in  provincial  politics, the  genial  old  gentleman who conducts the Miner  said it was because mayor Houston  favored a system by _which adventurers and shysters could come to  the top.   As the Conservative leaders are divided upon this same ques*  tion,  and the Liberal organization  has  unanimously   decided  against  the introduction of party liucs,;the  province.must be full of adventurers  and shysters.    That is if everyone  who disagrees, with  the aforesaid  genial old  gentleman thereby be  conies an adventurer or a shyster.  Wholesale  Houses  NELSON  B.C.  GROCERIES.

Portland harbor,  two weeks ago, today made public  its decision, which is  to  the  effect  that while the master committed  an error  in judgment,-it. was  not  sufficient to justify the  suspension  of his certificate.    The error was in  not making sufficient'-'allowance for  the combined action  of  tide, wind  and sea-'   The court  finds  that the  pilot should not have left the A^essel  when  ho  did,  and  commends  the  officers and crew of the  California  i'or   their  conduct  after   the  accident.

Justice i^ursman took the  papers and  said he  would hand down  his decision soon.  in  tho   formation  of   an   international commission to examine and  report  upon  the diversion  of  the  waters that tiro the boundaries of  I Canada and the United States.    It  appeared  from  the   papers before  tho  committees, comprising copies  of    correspondence    between   the  president  of the  commiisioneis of  the New York state reservation at  Niagara and tho secretary of state,  and between the governor of New  York and   the secretary of state,  that by reason of the diversion of  tlio waters of tho lakes through the  Welland canal and the proposed diversion of waters iu great volume  to be taken under grants for  the  construction of the Chicago drainage canal, the proposed canal from  Georgian lake to the Ottawa river  and other projected waterways, together   with    like   diversions    of  waters  in  considerable   quantities  from  the Niagara river above the  falls of Niagara for the generation  of mechanical power under grants  from the state of New York and the  province    of   Ontario,    the   water  levels of the several lakes forming  a portion of the boundary between  the United States and Canada are  reduced, and will be in future, under like grants, so greatly diminished as to constitute a serious menace  to   navigation   on    these   waters.  Under these circumstances the committee decided that the commission  should  be  authorized,  and reeom- ,  mended tho  passage of the  resol  ution.  scribed   by   the   peopi-;    of    the  country.

FERLAND & CO.  ���CSf  CITY LOCAL HEWS  The lot of the vagrant who is suspected of more serious offenses is  not a happy one in Nelson. Yesterday morning James Broughan and  James Sherran, the two men arrested after the thefb at the Lakeview  hotel, were brought before magistrate Crease again and sentenced to  four and six months respectively,  Sherran's sentence being the limit  provided by the code.  A horse and dump-cart belonging  to Hawley, the contractor who is  working on Gilkcr's store, went over  the embankment on Ward street  just outside the Ontario Powder  Company's office at noon yesterday.  A big crowd of spectators gathered  in a few minutes. No damage was  done beyond the breaking of several of the posts which carry the  sidewalk.  A marriage license was issued  yesterday to William Franklin  Sage and Ressa Del Glaudon. ''  A. B. Mackenzie, of Rossland, and  E. J. Coyle, of Vancouver, two of  the Canadian Pacific's most, popular passenger agents, spent yesterday in Nelson wondering where  they were at. Having easily passed  Rossland in the race, Nelson is now  running Vancouver for first place  on the Mainland.  Manager Burnett of the gas company last night pointed with pride  to the illuminating power of the  gas manufactured by his company  as evidenced by the effect in the  Hudson's Bay Company's stores.  Nelson has:more fine plate glass  show windows than any other city  in the province���for its size.  H. R. Bellamy is in Kamloops, accompanied by E. C. Kingsmill, the  New Zealand cyanide expert, who  has also had considerable experience in dredging in that country.  They intend making an inspection  of the Thompson river, north of  Kamloops,, with a view to making  arrangements for tho building of  two, gold dredges to work the river  tied, " *  Au order was made _ yesterday  for discovery in the action of Kaslo  & Slocan Railway vs.A.

The call was signed by nearly all of  the voters, and Mr. Murphy informed the committee that he  would accept a nomination coming  as this did.

Mr. Murphy, is a graduate  of Ottawa University of the class  of '92 and is 30 years of age. He is  a brother of James Murphy, barrister, late of Revelstoke.
