 DAILY  EDITION   BY  MAIL  FIVE  DOLLARS A YEAR  WEEKLY EDITION BY MAIL  TWO DOLLARS A YEAR  EIGHTH YEAR  KELSON":  WEDNESDAY MOKNTOG, APRIL 4  1900.  PRICE FIVE  CENTS.  i  CONSPICUOUS    GALLANTRY  Shown by Britishers.  Lon'don, April -i.���Tiie war offico  has   posted  :i  dispatch  from  lord  Roberts reading as follows :  Bi.okmkoxtuIiV, April 2.   -2:30 p.m.  ���In continuation  of my  telegram  of March .'Usfc, there has been considerable delay in getting accurate  returns  of   the casualties,  its  tho  action took  place  22  miles  hence.  The telegraph cable  has  been  interrupted    several    times,    doudy  weather has intcifsired with signalling and although there has been no  engagement since, the force is continually iu touch with the  enemy.  "There were  many acts of conspicuous gallantry displayed during  the day.    *Q'  battery  remained in  action  under a cross-fire   at  1300  yards for  some  hours, the  officers  serving the guns  as  the casualties  reduced the detachments.    Several  gallant   attempts   were    made   to  bring  in  two  guns, the  teams  of  Avhich had been killed,  but at each  attempt the horses were shot down.  The Essex, Minister, Shropshire and  Northumberland mounted infantry  and Roberts' Horse covered tho retirement  of  the   guns   fiom   that  position to the oiossing of the drift  found by the cavalry two miles further south, and  withstood  the  determined attack of the enemy, who,  in some  cases,  advanced 'within  a  hundred yards.  '���'U' battery of the Royal Horse  artillery was suddenly surrounded  in the drift, and the officers and  men were all made prisoners without a shot being fired. Rut major  Taylor and a sergeant-major succeeded in escaping in the confusion.  Five guns were captured at the  ' Sji%Jic time. Further details tomorrow."  Lord Robei ts' dispatch seems to  linally dispose of the earlier le-  port of the guns, and the fact that  the Beers remain in occupation of  the watei'woiks is taken as an indication that they intend to make  a stand sufficiently long to cover  -the withdrawal oi" the guns .and  wagons to a place of safety, although the absence of definite information regarding the movements,  of general French's* cavalry makes"  it difficult to estimate the chances  of their recapture.  intelligent young Puerto Ricau, arrived today on the Caracas, and  wtis arrested on the charge of a violation of the contract labor law on  complaint of an organizer of the  American Federation of Labor.  Kruz came here under contract  with au American firm who declare  their intention of fighting the case.  BOER VERSIfW OF BATTLE  Their Casualties.  Pumtoria, March 31.���There has  been heavy fighting between Brandfort aud Rloeinfoutein. The Wak-  kerstroom and Emmelo commandos  attacked   7000   Biitish  and  drove  ' them back with heavy loss. According to the ,icpOrts of the  wounded who have arrived here,  lighting occnri'ed all along the line.  The federal troops had positions on  the side and top of  tho mountain,  " while the~British positions were-on  opposite side of the hill. The Biitish  charged repeatedly, but Were repulsed. The latest reports say that  tho federals Mere holding their  own, but the final result of the  ^fighting is not known hero. The  federal loss was nine killed and  wounded.  Reports from Brandfort received  later state that 2000 fedeials attacked 3000 British successfully,  but that 13,000 British reinforcements arrived and the federals, were  compelled to retire. The* federal  loss, according to tiiese reports, was  slight.         Flour Trust Eeceivers.  Nbw i'oiuc, April 3.���Au order  was filed in court of chancery in  Jersey City, New Jersey, making  permanent tiie appointment of  geueral Samuel Thomas of New  York, Albert C. Toring of Minneapolis and Charles K Kimball of  Summit, New Jersey, as receivers of  the United States Flour &,Milling  Company, otherwise known as the  Flour Trust.  BRITISHERS' CREAT PLUCK  Boer Brutalities.  Bushman's Kop, April: 2.���Hearing that, the waterworks were deserted, the correspondent of the  Renter's Telegraph Agency rode  forward today. Arriving at the  crest of the hill, a volley was fired  at him and a moment later a man  appeared at the top of the crest.  Calling on hini to stop firing, and  saying he wa's unarmed and desiring to talk with him, the correspondent discovered that this man  was an American who declared that  he accompanied the Boers only as a  sightseer. He said that never during his whole life had he witnessed  such magnificent pluck as that  shown by the British on Saturday,  and he asserted that not only himself, but the Avhole Boer army were  profoundly touched with . admiration at their gallant behaviour.  It appears that the  Boers  never  doubted  their  ability   to   capture  the whole British force, aind were  dumbfounded at the courage  displayed and at tho masterly way in  which the force was able  to escape  from the death  trap.    The correspondent's   informant    refused    to  give any information regarding the  Boer   forces   or  their movements,  ���but   it   appears   that the  present  force   was   detached from Kroonstaadt, joined the Ladybrand force,  and  again  went  north   to   Thaba  Nehu,   one   portion following   the  other and meeting colonel Broadwood's retreating force.   The burghers engaged consisted of Sehoe-  man's commando, which was accompanied by many foreigners.   Coni-  fnatulant John  II.  Blake Avas  present  with   the Irish   brigade and  other foreigners.  The fight was marked by many  acts of  individual courage.     The  QUEEN IS IN IRISH WATERS  first man to warn the British of  the ambush" was a sergeant of the  army service corps, who shot a Boer  dead with his revolver. A Household cavalry man, who was sum-  monded to surrender, threw his rifle  in"his captor's face, knocking him  over, and escaped.  The Boeif, undoubtedly shot sev-���  oral of the prisoners and also killed  some of their own meu, who advanced to demand the British surrender.  Bushman's Kop, April 2.���Later  -' According to the testimony of  eye witnesses the Boers shot some  of the prisoners; but the confusion  was" so great, the fire proceeding  from all directions and the Boers  firing upou the convoy, in which  their own men were killed, that it  is impossible to say exactly what  happened.- -Explosive bullets-have-  been found in the bandoliers of  some of tho Boers who were captured.  The enemy pursued the British  for mile", killing, wounding and  taking prisoners. One squadron of  tho Sixth Dragoons, which Avas the  first in the action 110 strong, mustered at the end only ten mounted.  The Boers seemed to be in great  strength throughout the district  and are signalling ou al! sides. A  large body is reported moving  houbhwest of Bloemfontein in the  direction of the raihvay.  Duplicate machinery is aA'ailabJe  to replace that which the Boers  dostioyed tit the Avafeerworks.  The British troops are in urgent  need of remounts.  Enthusiastic Reception.  Duiimn, April 4.-12:20 a.iu.���In  spite of the rain that was falling  aud the huge puddles of Avater  under foot, the arrival of queen  Victoria in the Royal yacht,Victoria  and Albert, off KingstoAvn was the  occasion for much enthusiasm, although this did not take an organized form oAying to the fact that  her majesty came several hours  ahead of schedule tiine.  The passage of the channel  was  smooth and the queen  suffered no  discomfort, although she expressed  regret at the premature departure  from Holyhead, wliich was OAving to  a fear that the threatening Aveather  conditions   might cause her Irish  subjects disappointment.     It  had  beeu officially announced that she  Avould reach-Kingstown at 5:30 p.m.  Tuesday, instead of 2 p.m., but at  the latter hour, the Victoria and  Albert loomed up through the haze  and rain and Avas greeted by the  thunder of 21 guns from each ship  of the British channel   squadron.  Thousands had poured into Kingstown regardless of the pelting rain,  "which luckily ceased about 5 o'clock,  and  they  braA'ed  the  cold  winds  and mud until midnight.   The celebration  was   confined   to  an illumination   aijd to a few fireAvorks  here aud there.    A shining, shaui-  rock stood out against the blackness of Dublin bay, and from the  Jackies clustered on the decks of  the squadron came strains of "God  Save the Queen," which were taken  up Avith a Avill  by the crowd, and  Avhen   "Soldiers    of    the    Queen"  floated across the quiet water, the  spectators on-Kingstown pier joined  in with c qual fervor.  Although all political conditions  are represented in KingstoAvn there  AAras no attempt at a counter demonstration. In fact, the evening's  fireworks, singing and cheering  AA'ere 'not marred by any ^hostile  note, and the entry of the queen  'into Dublin today (Wednesday) Avill  probably bes a. repetition of a similar friendly celebration.  Mrs. Catherine ^leyers,. aged 32,  Avife of a coal driver liA'ing in this  city, this afternoon killed her two  children, a daughter three years  old and a son one year old, by  throwing them into a cistern under  the flooor in the kitchen. Sho  threw herself into the cistern, where  the bodies were found at 3 o'clock  this afternoon. Mrs. Meyer left a  note addressed to her relatives,  .which AA'as Avritten rather hastily,  but said in substance that she owed  a grocery bill.of one dollar and that  the grocer had refused to trust her  for any more supplies. . The letter  said nothing about committing  suicidef and it is supposed that she  was temporarily insane and brooding over her f:\ilurp/to obtain credit  at the grocery Avhen she committed  the shocking tragedy.  RYDER FINANCE MINISTER  In Martin's Cabinet.  Victoria, April 3.---[Special to  The Tribune.] ���C. S.

London, April 4���0.40 a. m.-~No  news has yet been received of the  expected battle between general  French and the Boers. There is  now but a remote prospect of the  recapture of the guns. The Daily  Chronicle, whose Cape Town correspondent joyfully predicts that  the Avar Avill be1 over in  three months, says: "in order to re-establish our position in  the Fiee State Ave need a brilliant  success won on the scene of our  latest reverse." It is announced  from Springfontein that the censorship has again curtailed the dispatches, therefore important de-  opments must be impending. There  is little neAA's from other points,  Mafeking was still besieged on  March 20th and there are rumors  that_general-Buller-is preparing to  advance.   Sunday Closing in Paris.

Killed Herself and Children.  Rochester, New York, April 3.���  get no more  grocery store,  Hutton an Autocrat.  Ottaava, April 3���[Special to The  Tribune].���Colonel Prior  asked in  the house today for the correspondence shoAving^ why colonel  Vince,  New Brunswick, and colonekWhite,  Guelph, were left out of the staff  corps by the minister of militia, although selected by general  Hutton  for the same.   The'reasons given  by Hutton were that they   Avere  dabbling in  politics.    This  reason  was afterwards countermanded by  Hutton on  instructions fiom Borden, who said ibab they  AA'ere  too  old and had been on the retired list  and in the case of colonel White he  had lost part of one hand and AA'as  maimed. Borden gaA'e these reasons  again today, stating  that Hutton  had no authority from him   to pay  that  politics  had  anything to do  with it.    Besides this Boi den  read  two letters, one from colonel   Ayl-  mer who is uoav in  command, and  one from colonel Foster s-tating that  Hutton had instinctcd them not to  go to Borden's office if the minister asked them, aud if lie (Hutton)  gave them permission at any time  to do so they Avould be required to  go to hiinjind_tcll_whatever Borden  said.    In this Avay Button acted as  a despot and had instituted a reign  of terror  in   his  military branch.  After the matter diopped, Clarke  Wallace took up the budget debate.  San Jose Scale Bill.

Ottawa-,   Apiil   3.���[Special  RAILWAY CIRCULAR WHICH  Affects Nelson Jobbers.  The following joint circular has  been issued by the Canadian Pacific,  Great Northern,  Northern Pacific,  aud Spokane   Falls    &   Northern  railways:     Agents  at  destination  Avill  not distribute   carload   shipments of property among two or  more consignees.    Ageuts will not  send notice of arrival to more than  one party, and-will make only one  expense bill for the charges on the  entire carload.    In case one party  will not accept notice of the arrival     as     consignee     and     pay  the    charges      on      the      entire  carload   and     take    delivery    of  same,       agents       are      required  to  make separate notices and expense bills, and correct the way bill  and collect on each shipment at the  less-than-carload      rates. The  carload rates under this classification are not applicable:-on freight  consigned to railway agents, or to  company's cartage agents for delivery to various parties."  The enforcement of this rule by  the raihvays means a great deal to  local jobbers, preventing, as it does,  the distributing of carload lots  among the smaller consumers, a  custom which prevailed until recently, and admitted eastern jobbers into direct competition Avith  the local: firms. This reform was  promised several months ago by  the raihvays concerned. The circular, "which is quoted from above,  Avas receiA'ed yesterday by the local  agents, giving them more precise  instructions in the matter.  NELSON LOCAL  NEWS.

The forger who victimized Nelson  merchants Several months ago, by  forging the signature of J. A. Hon-  oyiaan   to   checks    for    different  amounts, was in Nelson, again last  Aveek and repeated his previous performance.   This forger is probably  tho cheekiest crook that has  operated in Kootenay.     Upon the  occasion of his  first visit he forged  the signature of J. A. Honey man of  the local foundry to sevcral_eheeks,~  induced   local   merchants  to  cash  them, and before  the  forgery Avas  discovered got out of toAvn.     Most  crooks are satisfied Avith victimizing  the people of a city once, but this  one   apparently   is   not.     lie evidently considers the people of Nelson easy game, for he not only  returns to defraud them by forgeries,  but even duplicates his performance  by forging the same signature that  he used upon  the previous occasions.    So  far, three  forged  checks  haA-e been reported  to the police,  all for small amounts.    The  latest  issues are in the same handwriting  as the firs-t the chief difference being that the forger used  the  name  of George Murray  last    Aveek  instead of George Burbank as before.  Of the three checks reported so far,  ono Avas cashed at the  Athabasca  saloon and another at tho Lakeview  hotel.    Not one of tho  three persons avIio cashed the forger's checks  have anything like a distinct  remembrance of him,  so  the police  are rather much at  sea.    On  both  occasions the checks  were cashed  on Saturday night, aud this  time  the thief netted nearly $10.  One of the victims avIio is a friend  of the chief of police, told the chief  he thought Mr. Honeyman had  made a mistake, as the check AA-as  drawn on tho Avrong bank. The  chief glanced at the check, and  then expressed the opinion that it  Avas the victim Avho had made tho  mistake.  Horton Law Repealed.  Ai.hanv. Ncav York, April  2.���  Governor Roosevelt has  signed  assemblyman Loomis'  bill   repealing  the Horton laAV.  Two Other Cases.  Judge Forin presided at a criminal sitting in the court house yesterday, disposing of three cases in  which the defendants had applied  for a speedy trial. II. II. BoAvden  Avas sentenced to tAA'o years' imprisonment, EdAvard Clayburn received a similar term and Thomas  Sanderson was discharged.  The first case taken  up Avas that  of Bowden,. who was brought into  court by chief of provincial police  Webster and acting officer Beer/by  Avhom Bowden was arrested in Spo-���  kane. - After   the  charge, that of.  stealing $600 from the Hall Mines  smelter, was read, Bowden pleaded  guilty.   W. A.  Galliher, the prisoner's  counsel,  made an   eloquent  appeal on his client's behalf, placing stress on the fact that Bowden's  record Avas clean, and soliciting the  clemency of the courb.   Judge Forin  remarked briefly on the serious nature of the crime to Avhich Bowden,���  had pleaded  guilty, and  then  imposed the sentence of two yairs'  imprisonment in the  penitentiary.  The prisoner received  the sentence  stoically.   S.   S. Taylor, Q. C, re- %  presented the crown.  Sanderson Avas thpn arraigned -  and pleaded not guilty. The charge  against him. was that on the day  folloAving the accident in February  last on the CroAv's Nest road, east  of Creston, he stole a money packet  containing $150 intended for the  agent at Creston. C. P. R. detective Jansen sat beside S. S. Taylor,  Q. C, who conducted the prosecution, and W. A. Galliher & P. E.  Wilson appeared for the defence.  The.express messenger to whom the  package of currency had been com  mitted, and other members of the  "ereAV of the wrecked train gave  evidence. His honor decided that  the evidence did not AVarrant a conviction " aud discharged the prisoner.  Clayburn, the last of  the trio,  was,placedjin the dock and pleaded  not guilty to the charge of stealing  a sum'of money supposed to be,  about $170 from  a  roomer at  the  Clarke hotel.    It Avas demonstrated  in evidence that the informer had  indulged  freely  in  liquor   on  the  28th of February and had  gone to  his room at night Avith the  money  on his person.    Clayburn �� AA'as seen  in his room during the eA'cning and  about midnight went to a sporting  house and Avas flush of money, although up to that tinie.he had been  broke.     When  arrested  he threw  several bills into the gutter aud "at -  the police station said:    "I did not  steal that man's money," although  nothing had been said to him"about  the charge on which he Avas arrested..   These suspicious facts A\-ere   '  dAvelfc on by judge Forin   in  his review of the evidence.      The sentence of tAA'o years' imprisonment in  _the_penitentiary was then passed   The police authorities state that '  the offence of "'rolling" men, that is  relieving them of their money Avhile  helpless from drink, is more common than is generally understood,  and expresses the hope that the  sentence meted to Clayburn may  have a salutary effect,  Mark Twain on  Copyrights.  London, April 3.~~The select  committee qf tho house of lords on  the copyright bill mnc today, and  Samuel L. Clemens (Maik Twain)  Avas examined. He expressed the  opinion that the copyright laA\'s of  Great Britain and the United  States were uoav so nearly Avhat  they ought to be that they only  needed one, commercially trifling,  but morally gigantic, amendment  in order to become perfect. Mr.  Clemens explained that the amendment would be the revival of tho  42 years' limit and a return to perpetual copyright.  Inland Revenue Collections.

To make the province of British  Columbia    prosperous,    something  must be  created Avithin   the   pro-  A'ince.    Fifteen years ago all southern British Columbia Avas a Avilder-  ���ne.ss.    A railway has  peopled  that  wilderness,   and   the   people have  created something.   What has been  done in tho southern jiortion of the  province can be done in the north-  eru'portion, for the  northern  portion is less a wilderness today than  the  southern  portion   was  fifteen  years ago.     The  Canadian  Pacific  Kail way AA'as built largely by money  advanced by  the  goA'ernment, but  it is owned today by the company's  shareholders, the government having no proprietary interest in it. No  bettor opportunity could   be  had  ', than has the province of British Gol-  urabui today to make a beginning in  ���  goA'ernment OAvnership of railways.  Immense undeveloped stretches of  country, known  to be rich in natural resources, without any roads  of "any kind, extend from the Pacific Ocean eastward to  the western  boundary of the Northwest Territories.     Through   it   are   feasible  routes    i'or   >a     trunk     raihvay,  %A'hieh      could       be       fed      by  branch roads.   Such a road Avould  be to the'North Avhat the Canadian  Pacific is uoav to the South,    Each  Avould have its oavh territory, and  there could be no conflict or compc-  -���ti tion.���The building of-such a road-  by the pro\Tince would attract more  attention   and   capital   to   British  Columbia than  a  thousand  Earl's  Court Exhibits, and, Avhat is of far  greater   importance, it  would de-  A'elop resources that Avould sustain a  large permanent population, Avith-  o it which the province can have no  lasting  prosperity.   The   province  has   a   number   of   men   aspiring  to leadership, but none of them can  -sec beyond  the  limits of their respective ridings; all arc either engrossed  with  issues  that are sectional or factional.  What is Avanted  is a man  with   biains to  lead  and  daring  to  execute.    Has   the province such a man?    It had one, but  ho is dead.    Theodore Davie Avould  havo   dared, and   he  would   have  found   means   to   execute   such  a  work; a Avork that Avlien completed  would go far to place British Columbia in the front rank of Canada's great provinces.  to a couple of Johnnies as they discussed the political .situation on  Baker street, yesterday. That o. I. c.  talked sense.  In Nelson riding the politicians  are all at sea. The paity-line Conservatives haA'e several men anxious  to make the race; so haA'e the party-  line Liberals; but the bulk of the  voters of both parties do not Avant  to make a party-line fight AA'ith the  material offering. The Independents are sawing Avood.  AT THE PARIS EXHIBITION  POLITICAL   POINTERS.  "Theie n?'e enough independent  men in Biitish Columbia to defeat  any combination that can be made  by party politicians if only they  are led by men who mean business,"  rcttiailced an old-line Conservative  Buildings Not Ready.  Paris, April  3.���Noav   that   the  exposition buildings are practically  completed,   it   is   found   that the  tower of the Turkish  pavilion  Avill  so obstruct the vieAV of  the adjoining    American   national    pavilion  that commissioner Peck has deemed  it   imperative   to   make    another  strong effort to secure its removal.  He   AA'rote    ioday    a    A'igorously  worded protest to the director-general of the exposition, in AA'hich  he  said ��� that' the , Turkish    pavilion  would seriously impair, not  only  our own building in Avhich \A'e take  great pride, but the effect of the  Avhole embankment of the" Seine on  AA'hich are erected the pavilions of  other nations.  Regarding the Sunday opening  question, commissioner Peck has received a petition signed by a mass  of American exhibitors, Avhose exhibits are situated in the' park of  "Viueennes, requesting permission to  remain open ou Sundays,' Sunday  being the only day in the week on.  which they expect a large attendance, owing to the park being out  of the AA'ay for most Parisians.  They therefore Avish to show the  machinery in motion on that day.  Commissioner Peck has decided to  clo^C- the _ national _paviliou_ on  Sundays.  Although it is less than a fortnight from the dtite of the opening  of the exposition the grounds are  covered with fragments of Avood  Avork, stones and other rubbish and  the authorities haA'e lighted upon a  novel scavengering scheme. Tho  minister of Avar is to send  ten thousand soldier^, Avho are  iioav being drilled for the purpose,  to SAveep like an army through the  grounds and buildings on April 12th  for tiie purpose of cleaning up till  debris. The state of unprepared-  ness of the exposition was brought  up iu the chamber of deputies this  afternoon, Avhen 31. Gustav Chapuis,  Radical-Republican, introduced a  resolution inviting the government  to postpone the opening. He said  that in view of the present state  of the AAorks, the inauguration on  April 11 th avjis simply a bait'to  draw provincials and foreigners to  see palaces which Avould not be  ready until a month later. The  minister of commerce, M. Millerand,  replied that the organizers had met  with all sorts of difficulties Avhich  had delayed the progress of the  work. Nevertheless, he said, no  exposition had ever beeu so ready  as this one at a similar period. Continuing, M. Millerand said:  "I affirm that ou the evening of  tho 13th all the palacc�� will be  ready and that the majority of tho  exhibits will also be ready. The  inauguration has been decreed for  April J 1th, and France cannot at  this hour withdraw from its signed  engagements. The   imitations  have been sent out, and it would  not be understood Avhy the exposition, Avhich is ready, should not  be opened on time."  M. Milleraud's statements elicited  loud applause from the Socialists  aud Radicals, aud the resolution of  M. Chapuis AA'as rejected by- a vote  of 357 to 5S.  Canal Legislation.  Nkw Fork, April 3.-���The most  important canal legislation of the  session passed the senate today. It  Avas senator Ford's bill removing  the limit of $50,000 for which corporations are permitted to capitalize for operation on the canals.  This bill has been earnestly urged  by Erastus Winian and other capitalists, in the interests of the large  steel canal boats, and as vigorously  opposed by the smaller boat oavii-  ers. A final effort AA'as made today  to save from defeat the bill appropriating $200,000 for a survey of  the canal, but it is believed that no  pressure can bring it about.  Commander Unknown.  London, April 3.���The Avar office  informs the Associated Press that  it has no information as to avIio  commanded the Boers in the affair  leading to the capture of the British  guns, but it places no reliance whatever in the supposition that a  United States attache, or any one  connected Avith the United States  government, took part in it.

THE BANK OF  BRITISH   COLUMBIA  NELSON  Savings Bank Branch  OUKHK.NT KATI! Oh'  1NTKKKST 1'AID.  MEN  OF THE  DAY.  Following  is  a short  sketch   of  Cecil Rhodes : Cecil .1. Rhodes, British South African financier and Imperialist, was born ab Bishop Stort-  f'ord; July oth, 1S53: son of au English clergyman.   He entered Oxford  University, but  in  1S73,   following  medical  advice   in  a  serious  lung  trouble, went to the Cape and made,  his abode in Natal.   There  he continued his studies, returning to Oxford and taking-his  degree at Oriel  College.    The great rush to the diamond mines had begun in 1S70; the  next year  10,000 miners  encamped  in Kimberley, where nine-tenths of  all the diamonds have been  found  in  an  area  less  than  four   miles.  'Rhodes  staked  the  little  that  he  had  in  a  few  claims   most fortunately selected, plodded laboriously  at the  head of his  little  gang  of  Kafiirs, and soon had  such  success  (his gains are reported  at  millions  of pounds before 1809) that he was  able to turn his immense ability, as  nh organizer to the combination of  all  interests  in  four   chief mines  into   the   consolidated    De   Beers  Mining Company.     Ia  IS99, when  he   had   finally    accomplished  his  great work, he had  united  the interests of -12 companies and 50  private  owners.    The   capital  of the  DeBeers    is    ��20,000,000;'   annual  output ��3,000,000, of   which  one-,  third is clear  profit;   annual  divi-  " fclkid, 25 per cent. When the  great' Transvaal gold fields were  opened soon afterward, the firm of  Rhodes Sc Co. was prominent in  their exploitation. As an ardent  Britibh imperialist, he laid plans  wliich led to the "formation of the  British South Africa Company for  opening and  administering Ma-ah-  "onaland and , other Bccliuana  countries.  Entering   political    life,  he   was  Is now prepared to issue Drafts and  Letters of Credit on Skaguay, U. S.,  Atlin, B. C, and Dawson City, N. W. T.  elected to the Cape parliament aud  in 1890 was  made prime minister,  Mr. Schreiner, the present premier,  being   his   most    trusted    helper.  When  Rhodes  was  very credibly  charged���though the charge never  gained   full   legal   evidence���with  complicity in   the   Jamieson raid,  and even with being its  organizer,  his premiership ended.    He is popularly   supposed   to   possess   vast  wealth.   His intimate friends doubt  this,  saying, that  he  has no love  for possessing money,  but, instead,  a   contempt   for   meu   who make  wealth their chief object.    His  delight, they say, is great in  making  money, and then  equally  great  in  .spending   it.    He   has    announced  theories wliich even savor of socialism, to the effect that a man's large  wealth is not chiefly his,  nor  even  his family'0; it should all go to the  public service���to the state in some  form or another.    What is  wealth  to the individual who inherits it?  A burden too great to be  borne."-1  He is probably tho most ardent of  living British imperialists, ready to  pour out mouey like water to bring  all South Africa under British sway,  inasmuch as he regards  "the English-speaking race as the chosen instrument for bringing in a state of  society based upon justice, liberty  and peace."
