FEATS OFTHE NAVAL BRIGADE  In South Africa.  London, March 80.���Tho Gazette  this evening contains dispatches  from rear admiral Harris, commanding the British South African  station, reporting the proceedings  of the naval brigades at Belmont,  Gras Pan and Colenso.  They throw but little light on the  battles, but show that the courage  and determination of the naval  men were beyond praise, and that  their assistance to the military  authorities was 'invaluable.' Lieutenant Archibald Deas of the third  class cruiser Pinion, 1', iu the report  with tlio four  Pan, where he  debate on the budget today. He  concluded by moving the following  ameudment: "That this house is of  opinion that a system of mutual  trade preference between Great  Britain aud Ireland aud the colonies would greatly stimulate an increased production in the commerce  between these countries, and would  thus promote and maintain the  unity of the empire, and that nothing which falls short of the complete realization of such a policy  should be considered as final or satisfactory." Patterson, minister of  customs replied, and Prior moved  the adjournment of the debate.  PARTY   LINES   DISCUSSED  QUESTIONS   ASKED ABOUT  Disturbances in China.  London, March 30.��� The partialis detailed to attack two strong j hl0,?ttlry FCc,etary of the foreign  of his  proceedings  naval guns at Gras  kopjes on either side of the railroad  relates how after two hours' shelling he received orders to retire.  He  continues:  "The Royal Artillery on the  right had already moved off when  I got the order, and tho Boers,  having got our range accurately,  ���wore pouring in on us such an effective shrapnel lire that I judged  it to be impossible to carry out the  order, without leaving the guns or  suffering veiy heavy losses. I  therefore continued to Tire on the  Boer guns .with such effect as to  put them out of action, first., one  and then another. For 15 to 20  minutes at a time their shells burst  with the utmost accuracy. Our  guns and ammunition trolley were  splattered all over "with shrapnel  balls, but owing to my system of  making all hands lie down when  the Boer guns flashed, we had only  six wounded, when, after an hour  rind a half, the Boers abandoned  ���,ii��ieir position."  Admit al Ilanis expresses great  pride in the conspicuous gallantry  of lioth the sailors and the marines.  Snow" Shoe Eond Taken Up.

Ottawa, March 30���[Special to  The Tribune].���The Dominion government has decided not to permit  trap fibbing in Canadian waters.  This was pressed for by certain  parties in British Columbia.  ofiice,: William St. John Broderick,  replying to a question in the house  of commons confirmed the  reports  that disturbances had  occurred  in  in  the   neighborhood  of Tientsin,  saying that they were apparently  caused by the secret societies.   He  added that tho foreign  representatives had called on China to remedy  the  matter^ and the  governor of  the province in'which the disturbances occurred had been  recalled,  aud a newjjovernor had  been  appointed.   The under secretary also  said that two British warships had  gone  to  Taku  to   protect  British  lives and'property. Joseph Walton,  Liberal,    complained    that   Great  Britain had failed to  uphold  British commercial aud political interests aud demanded. a more vigorous and  defiuite policy, if it was  proposed to^meet Russia's energetic  progress.  Mr. "William St. John Broderick,  under-secretary of state for foreign affairs, denied that the government had been backward in  pushing concessions in China. He  said that it should' bo borne in  mind that Great Britain could not  force concessions. As to the suggestion of cooperation on the part  of the powers in securing wide administrative reforms in China, Mr.  Broderick pointed out that' this  would mean an assumption of the  government of China. He declared  that, thus far, British trade had not  suffered in a single instance, and as  an Illustration of this, he announced  that the murderers of missionary  Brookes had' been brought to  justice.  Sir diaries Dilke, Radical, said  the debate had shown that the  weakest point in Gi'eat Britain's  foreign policy was tiie story of her  dealings with China.  Sir Edward Grey, Liberal^ said  that Great Britain ought to be  gratified by the favorable response  given to the circular note of the  United States government. The  United States had adhered strictly  to the principle of non-interference  in foreign affairs generally, and  this circular was a departure from  their old practice.  ��� After further discussiou7the~sub-  jeet was dropped and the house  went into committee of supply.  In Kaslo.  Kaslo, March 30.���Politicians  are getting to be fairly thick in  Kaslo. William Hunter has been  here counting up his chances of  beating "Bob" Green. Shall ib be  party lines, is a question he and  others have to face, and it will be  discussed on Saturday when tho  local Liberals meet to elect four  delegates to the Vancouver convention, to be held on April oth.  Several leading citizens havo been  interviewed on the party lines  matter. Mayor McAnn, G. E.  Martin, E. P. Stephenson, D. C.  Macgregor, A. T. Garland and Dr.  Hartin favor party lines being  draAvn. Alex Smith of the Surprise  mine is strongly against any such  action. To the interviewer mayor  McAnn returned an answer that  may surprise many people. He  said: "I do not expect to take any  active part in the general elections,  but.I am iir favor of. party lines  being drawn."  G. Gerrard, manager of the Bank  of British North America, remarked:  "As a bank manager, I do not believe in taking up party lines at all,  either one side or the other; As a  business man*, I think -"something  should be done to amend the condition of affairs which has existed  in the Slocan for the past nine  months. One does not require to  be a politician to see that the prevailing condition of things is most  unfortunate and tends to keep the  country back."  A pronounced advocate of party  lines is Mr. Martin, of the firm of  Whealler & Martin, solicitors. His  answer was : "Responsible government and .party lines go hand in  hand; wherever you find the one  you find the other throughout the  world. Party lines make responsible government, the leaders,are  selected by the party and "only the  best, brainiest and safest men are  seleeted^by'-the party-ias pleaders.  Without party lines the province  must of necessity be governed by  cliques, whose hope of retaining  power provokes legislation' for  vote3 rather than provincial advancement. I think that the ap-  pi caching election should be run on  party finest but the whole province  must come' into it to be of auy  effect."  Ore shipments were small last  week totalling only eight tons, of  which six were sent by the Last  Chance to the Kaslo Ore Company  and two tons by the Rambler to,  Everett. Four carloads of ore came  over the K. & S. yesterday.  W. J. Twiss, the well-known  local insurance agent, believes that  the Slocan will easily beat the  Boundary.

London, March 30, 9:20 a. m.���  The war office has issued the following from lord Roberts to the secretary of Avar: " Bloemfontein, March  30, 2;25 p. in. Owing to the activity  of the enemy on our immediate  front aud their hostile action to-  wimU the burghers who surrendered under the terms of,my proclamation, 1 found it necessary to drive  them from some kopjes they had  occupied near the Karoo Siding  station a few miles south of  Brandfort. The'operatiou was successfully carried out by the seventh  (Tucker's) division, assisted by the  iirst and third cavalry brigades,  under goueral French, and Le Gal-  lais' regiment of mounted infantry.  The enemy retreated to Brandfort  and our troops now hold the kopjes.  Our casualties were: Scottish Borderers, killed ��� Captain Going;  Avounded���captains Sellar, Luard,  Peebles, Curgem-en and EdAvards;  lieutenants Coulson and French and  about 100 rank and file."

I intended to open an  office in Greenwood and I took  down the necessaries. I brought  them back.

It oceupko  a cluster  of  hills, won  from the 'Boers after a  stiff fight, in' AArhich the British lost  seven officers and one hundred men.  The Boers  had -been  using  those  kopjes   as   a   base jfor   marauding  bauds that have been beating up  the country adjapeut to Bloemfontein, driving off cattle and forcing  non-resident Free' "Staters into the  ranks again. Theenemy must have  been in considerable force,'as lord  Roberts sent 8000 ihfantry and 3000  infantry against thein.  Lord Roberts' progress to Pretoria Avill probably consist of a  series of such fonvafd movements,  in Avhich the Boer positions Avill be  attacked by a portion of the army  advancing rapidrly Avith Avheel  transports, the main army coming  up as the railway is repaired. Lord  Roberts is stripping the forces, iu  the minor spheres of operations, of  their Avagons and transport animals, iu order to^ hasten the advance. This is understood to be  the reason why he recalled lord  Methuen 'from 'Batkly West to  Kimberley. Lord Roberts had to  haA-e lord Methuen's transport.  The reason AA'hy a hot chase Avas  not made after commandant Olivier  is that lord Roberts did not Avish to  wear out the cavalry transport.  General French lost 3000 horses in  the relief tof Kimberley. and in the  pursuit of general Cronje loid  Roberts lost 3000"transport cattle  at Watervaal Drift, - & r.d it is  estimated that he has lost 4000  other animals since the forward  movement began ou February, 13th.  The advance beyond Bloemfontein  is through a bare countiy, and the  supply officers forsee an increasing  difficulty in providing for a gieat  army moving along a single line of  raihvay, even when the latter is  working smoothly and has ample  rolling stock.

Taylor, one   of the  original owners of the Joker mineral  claim, in   Caihp  Mansfield, returned to Nolson yesterday from a  trip of inspection to the Joker property.    He reports  that the property is developing Avell and tho indications are that it Avill make one  "of the richest mines in Kootenay.  In speaking  of  the   development  that has been done upon the Joker,  Mr. Taylor explained that the property has been opened up bjy a 75-  foot shaft   sunk   upon  the" lodge,.  A\rhich Avas in ore for the ent'ire''9?s-  tance.    From  the  bottom  of   this  shaft a tunnel is being driven on  the Arein.v  The Joker ledge has been  traced ou the surface into the Mona  Fraction and the company's plan  of development is to driA'e the tunnel right through into the Mona  ground.    This, when accomplished,  Avill  give a vertical depth  of 200  feet on the Joker's end line.   So'  far the tunnel has  been i driven iu  S00 feet ou the side of the rich paystreak.    This paystreak is very rich  and has  steadily  widened  as  the  tunnel has  advanced."   When  first  encountered it Avas about 18 inches  in Avidth, but, when  crosscut  some  220 feet-iu from  the shaft it Avas  found to be almost six feet thick,  and near the breast of the  tunnel,  about 300 feet in, it is over six feet..  As to the values of the paystreak,^  Mr. Taylor says  it has  sampled on  an average $70 in  gold;-with about  25 ounces silver.    It is a quartz formation, and fully 00 per cent of the  gold values are free.    The  ledge in  Avhich the paystreak .occurs is very'  strong.    It has been crosscut about  225   feet   in   from   the shaft and  shows a Avidth of thirty-three feet.  The ledge matter carries  good values, and, exciusiA'e of the paystreak,  giA^es assay returns of $10 in gold.  Iu addition to the shaft and tunnel referred - to a ��� Avinzie has~ been  sunk from the tunnel level for  sixty-five feet and is in ore all tho  way. Some fifteen men are employed on the property in driving  ahead the tunnel and in putting in  an uprais-e, 250 feet in from the  shaft for ventilation purposes. This  is uoav up (50 feet and has ore showing the entire distance.  The Joker Avas staked by Mr.  Taylor in the fall of 1S07. He disposed of Jiis interest- to E. Mansfield, acting for Rene Laudi, and  the property Avas J afterwards  stocked by the Excelsior Gold Mining Company with a capital of  ��200,000. Of this amount ��40,000  represent preference shares and the  balance ordinary shares. Tho stock  commands a good price, bnt when  the A'alue of the property becomes  Jcnown it avj'U no doubt go higher.  The latent quotations on Excelsior  were $7 for tho preference ��1  .shares and $2.S5 for the ordinary  ��1  shares.    J.  J.

It has seemed to me that avo had  gained that position among the nations of the world that Avould make  it appropriate for us, in accordance  Avith the spirit of our institutions,  to make such a contribution. This,  of course, means the absolute neutralization of the Nicaragua construction, and since the Hay-Pauncefote treaty is directly in line with  this sentiment, I am, of course,  strongly in favor of its ratification."

This demand is  unobjectionable. At the same  time, however, ho insisted upon the  uon alienation of Kojedo.

Thj-jhe is no more likelihood of  Jltilpli Smith, M.P.P., of Nanaimo,  joining the Martin cabinet than  there is of Ms being offered tho  managership of any of tlio mines  whose owners are bucking the  _eight-liour law.    Nimstv days from now there  a\ ill not be a miner idle in JCootc-  nay; there will not be a single politician in the district; and theeight-  honr law will not be a 'subject of  ��� discussion. This will be the ono  result of an election in whk'lithe  people will declare that they, are  tired of tho methods of heif-seeking  politicians and ��rc content to give  t'xisting Iawb a fair trial before repealing them.  Tiik Liberals of Nelson will plnce  themselves   on   record   tonight   as  being opposed to both   party  lines  and Martinism.   A delegation will  be sent to  the  Vancouver  convention   instructed' to   vote    agairibt  adopting party lines in the coming  provincial contest and against Martinism.    Nelson is the one tiding in  the province  in which Martin  has  few   admirers   and    no   followers.  They are not all of the one  way of  thinking on political questions; but  they all abominate men  who turn  their coats, as Martin has done.  Ifew" Philippine Commission.  WASiiisu-ros, March 30. -Tho  cabinet was in session today for an  hour longer than usual and tho  leading topic of discussion was the  instructions to be given the new  Philippine commission. Jt is known  that it is the purpose of the presi  dent to make bhe civil government  of the Philippines represented in  the commission, superior to the  military in ail matters pertaining  to the government of the island  which are not strictly military in  character. From the time the  commission arrives iu Manila its  authority will be supreme, under  the president's, in nil matters of  government. ���.Secretary _Gage~"was~  of the opinion that the present rate  of taxation might safely be reduced  to some extent, and it was with a  view to a possible recommendation  to congress by the president on the  subject that the secretary made  his statement.        _      London Copper Market.

Pi ior to tlittl Linio gambling  litul   been   licensed and   tlioro  hud been fimv play.    Nob only "wore  biire-thing games running in in,my  gambling   houses   but    along   tho  sidewalks of Main street  for several blocks games  of all kinds were  in full   blast.    Tho    streets    -were  crowded nightly and  every game  fiom the old-time shell to the photograph sale were reaping a, rich harvest.    In   one   gambling   house   a  short faro game had been staited  and attracted it great  deal  of attention  It was run by a couple of Frenchmen. In playing short faro the  denier u?es a dealing box somewhat  similar to the regulation faro box,  the difference being that the sides  anil eiuls and toi) are put away until there remains only the frame of  box exposing the cartU from every  ilircction with just enough of a  frame to hold them in place compactly. In short faro the cards aio  placed in ;i box backs upward, instead of ftivo upward, as in regular  faro. Theie are no cards pasted ou  the table upon wliich to place bets.  In tho middle of the table i.s a glittering heap of gold and silver with  greenbacks of till denominations |  lying carelessly around.  j/'Jic    dealer     having    carefully  .-.bullied tho cards  places  them  in  the  box  backs upward.    He  then  slowly  and  with many  flourishes  deals out six  cards,  placing  them  face ilownwaul in  a semi-circle on  the table.    He then invites bpts.  A  player.can bet on  any  one of the  "six cards lying face down upon the  table.    Anil as many as care to do  so can pl.iy.    "When all bets have  been  made tho dealer pulls from  tiie box'the seventh caul and turns-  it face upwaril.    Then  he turns up  each of the six cards on  which  he  had invited bets.     If the( dealer's  card   is   higher than   tho   bettor's  card tho bank wins.    IT tho befctoi's  .card is higher than the ono turned  by the dealer the bettor wins.     If,  however,  there is  n tie, i. e,,  the  dealer turns the same can! that the  bettor  had  placed  his  money on,  the bank wins.   ' But iu such a case  tho player has the option of losing  Ids money, or ho can have  another  chance the next band around  if he  will double his  bet.     This .process  can   be  continued as  long  as the  bettor   is   willing   (o    double   his  stakes.    If he wins he gets paid in  full, if he  lo^ea  the  bank gets all.  In the regular game of faro when  the dealer turns out two  cards  of  tho same denomination it is  called  a split and the bank takes oao-half  _of_thc amount of the bet._     ���   ���  It is this option of doubling a bet  to'savc a loss that fascinates'- players of short  f?iro.    Of course,  professional   gamblers   did'   not   play  short faro, because it was known us  a   crooked  game.     The  dealer,  iu  placing the iirst fix cards upon the  table, docs it with many 'flourishes  and in such  a way as to enable a  player to see just what each card ia  before it lies face down upon the  t table.    If   tho   game    was   to   be  played   on   tlio   square   the' odds  would be against tlio bank (5  to 1.  I3ut it is  played  with  fixed   cards,  and the dealer is able lo hold in tho  "box and on the top of tho dock all  of the high cards, so that he can at  any time beat or tie a player  who  seems to have money.    Cappers are  always used, and wheu a  stranger  appears - they play and win large  sums,  which  they  turn   in   afterward.     "When   a   man  is  playing  high, doubling his bet each time, it  is ijossible for a man  making small  bets  on  other  cards to  win  with  ease.    The high player may be on a  comparatively low card,  and   the  dealer, in order to tie him anil make  him double his slakes, will have to  turn  the  same card.    So that all  the   small player has  to  do  is to  watch for an  ace  or a king, plaeo  his  bet upon  it.  anil  pick up his  money   each   time   the cards   arc  turned.  ft was while playing at this game  that Dave King lost his life in June,  !SS7. King had been living in the  ���mining camps of Marysville and  Wiekes for a couple of years. He  was one of the best gamblers iu the  west.   Hp looked, Iipwevpr, like a  bill to  dealer  to the  black-  leaned  typical   miner   as, wearing a  soft  gray hat,blue flannel shirt, trousers  tucked in hi.s  boots, he strolled  in  where this short faro game was being played.    Ho was spotted at once  and the cappers began to  play for  high  stakes.    After   watching the  game for a few minutes King began  to   play,  placing   one   dollar  bills  rolled into a ball on tho cards.     He  Avon almost every time and  always  called   for his  pay in   bills.    Noav,  however, another player at the  opposite end of the table  had  begun  to double his ^lakes, and the dealer  was giving his attention to the high  bettor.    King   didn't   get   excited,  but conlinueil to make au occasional  bet, always Avith  a  one-dollar  bill  rolled into  :i wad.    The  dealer in  paying A\oiild pick up  a  one-dollar  bill and pass it across to King. This  had been going on for perhaps half  an   hour   avIicc   the   dealer   again  tos=ed  a   soiled  one-dollar  King   in   payment,  as   the  thought, of a one dollar bet.  "Come again,"  said King  dealer.    " Look at that bet."  The dealer, a slight-built,  eyed,  nervous   Frenchman,  over and unrolled  King's bet.    As  he did so he saw that he  had  been  tricked.    A crisp, yellow, thousand-  dollar note rolled out of the  dirty  one-dollar   bill.       King   had   won  $100.1.    Tho dealer Avas white with  rage.     There  was  no limit to the  game and  King had   won fairly.  The  dealer, instead  of paying" the  bet,   leaned    back    in   his   chair,  reached his hand  under  the  table  and sprang  forward  and over the  table.    In his right hand gleamed a  long stiletto.    In an iustant he had  buried it in Kings  neck, pulled it  out and buried it again.  The place AA*as in an uproar in au  instant. The visitois broke for the  door, and tho cappers anil bouncers  pulled their guns and jumped upon  King. He was harmless, however,  for the Frenchman's aim Avas true.  He had killed King with the first  stab.  There AA'as a great to-do about  this crime. The Frenchman managed to get out,of town, and was  never caught, anil it was given out  by the ,owners ' of the gambling  house that King had been killed iu  a row of his-'own making. But the  shoit faro game AA-as closed and  never icoponed. Shortly siffcer-  wartls an anti-gambling   law was  passed in Montana, and all "sure-  thing" games were closed, much to  the satisfaction of the square  gamblers.  STOBYETTES.  An Irish servant-girl, avIio had a  very hard mistress, one day became  angry aud threatened to commit  suicide. "If you do," said her mistress, "you will surely go to hell."  "Well," said the girl, "if it isn't a  better place than this I won't Stay  there."    There was a time when SAveariug  was almost considered a gentlemanly accomplishment. An arch-  bishop of Canterbury of the day,  however, objected to the habit, ancl  calling on lord Melbourne to discuss  some business, thus apostrophized  him: "Noav, my lord.it will save  time if, before we begin, we assume  that everybody and everything is  damned."  Professor Simon J. BroAvn, the  neAV astronomical director of the  Naval"observatory at Washington,  occasionally indulges in a bit of  humor. On one occasion a colleague  came into his office, and, finding the  professor standing, said: "Is it  possible you AA'ork that way? I  cannot staud standing." "That's  peculiar," replied professor Brown,-  quickly ; " now, do you know, I can  not staud sitting ? "  The duke of "Wellington used to  tell a story of a Frenchman Avho, to  enforce his contention that wo are  mere creatures of habit, exclaimed :  " For example, avo wash our hands,  but never our feet." The "Iron  Duke " probably had not heard of  the English duchess of a century  before, Avho, when some one remarked Iioav dirty her hands were,  said : " Lord that's nothing; you  should see my feet!"  one brother said to the other:  "Did you see what was in the bed  last night?" "Yes, brother," was  the reply. They had both seen a  corpse.  Lord John Russell was not tactful. On one occasion he took the  duchess of Iverness down to dinner,  and, after he had. sat down for a  minute, he jumped up and Avent to  the opposite side of the table, and  sat down by the duchess of St. Albans. His Avifo asked him afterward AA'hy he had done it. "I should  have beeu ill if I had sat Avith my  back to that great fire." "I hope,"  said lady John, "you gave your  reason to the duchess of Iverness."  "No," he said, "I didn't; but I told  the duchess of St. Albans!"
