Ottawa, April 5.���[Special to  TheTiibune.]���The Canadian Pacific raihvay put up a red hot fight  against the Kettle River Valley  railway and the result was that it  was knocked out in the railway  committee on a vote of 39 for to S2  against, a majority against of 43.  The fight which the C. P. R. put up  was uot in committee but beforehand. On the other hand there  was no pressure behind the Kettle  River scheme, except what was  done by its advocates in parliament.  B^fock, who has never faltered in  looking after the interests of his  constituents, showed today plainly  that it was iu the interests of his  constituents that tho bill should  push,    lie gave  statistics to- sliow   the   increase    which   was   taking  .place in exports, .and pointed out  that both the Canadian Pacific railway and the Kettle River road  were wanted in the Boundary Creek  region. Walter JBarwiek, Toronto,  made a strong speech for the road,  stating that the company would  accept the clause prohibiting the  export of ores from Canada and  also prohibiting the sale or leasing  of the road to tho Canadian'Pacific  railway. "Ross Robertson strongly  endorsed the bill.  T. G. Shauglmessy, C. P. 11., after  pointing out what his company had  done already, said he did not object  to this road on tlio grounds of competition but because lie wanted a  free hand in those districts so that  he would be able to treat the mine  owners liberally and reduce freight  intes. He could not do so if another,  raihvay were let in there, as he-  would have to make terms with it  as to rates. Tupper opposed the  bill on the grounds that the Canadian Pacific raihvay should be considered." ""  Blair made a strong speech in  favor of the bill, lie said that the  time had arrived when the committee should say whether it was going  ' to refuse any charters southward.  If ever it was intended to give railway connection to tho south, there  would never be au occasion Avhen  a more cogent reason for doing so  would be given than today. He  was amused at Shaughnessy's cry  for a free hand, if there was anything in that argument it was that  tho Canadian Pacific railway  should never havo been allowed to  exist, but that a freo hand should  havo been given to the Grand  Trunk raihvay. What Shangh-  nessy feared from this road was  competition, and ho might as Avell  admit it.  Despite this strong appeal, the  bill was defeated. Theie were  thirty .Liberals, six Conservatives  and three Independents who voted  for the bill. The Independents  were McCarthy, Robertson and  Puttee.   Strike m Vancouver.  Vancouver, April 4.-���The painters, bricklayers, stonemasons and  carpenters in this city wore on  strike today. The building contractors acceded to the demands of  the   carpenters   aud    allowed   the  ' boss painters to patch matters up  with the painters' union, but declared war with tho bricklayers'  and   stonemasons'   union,  and  de-  _ elded to go on as well as they could  bv turning to work themselves  _Ad getting all those available  outside   the   union to help them. I  The carpenters, who were getting  30 cents an hour, demanded 33]  cents and a day of nine hours, with  a half-holiday on Saturday. Tho  painters demanded $3 a day; they  have been getting $2.50. The  stonemasons aud bricklayers demanded $4.50 foi" a day of eight  hours ; they have been getting $4.50  for nine hours a day. The contractors say they have been crowded  to the extreme every year and cannot make any further concession.  The Provincial Gazette.

Colonel Plumer's Losses.  , Pretoria, Tuesday/April 3,���In  tho fight of Ramathlama, March  31st, the following were taken prisoners : Captains Crewe, Duncan-  Robertson and McLaren, (Crewe  aud Duncan-Robertson have since  died), staff officers Cecil and Granville and nine soldiers, of whom six  were Avounded. Tho prisoners all  belonged to colonel Plumer's Rhode-  sian force.  Loxooy, April 5.���-It is thought  that the officer named Cecil captured  by the Boers at Ramathlama Js not  lord Salisbury's son, lord Cecil, as  the dispatch says he belonged to  colonel Plumer's force, and also if  the Boers had captured the  premier's son they would assuredly  herald the fact.  How They Were Captured.  Brandkort, April 2.���Burghers  who are returning from south of  the Samasport ambush, furnish interesting details of the occurrence.  It appears that when the first retreating British wagon entered the  drift, the ambuscaders shouted  "hands up," removed the officers  and let the carts through. This  ��� process was repeated several times  until the wagons arrived in a bunch.  When the ruse was discovered a  disordered flight followed. In one  cart were two officers to whom commandant Dewet shouted ".hands  up. One of them obeyed while the  other refused to surrender and was  shot. The burghers who were previously short of food now have  plenty. Commandant Dewet sent  the British guns, wagons and prisoners to Winburg.  The burghers lost three men  killed and ten wounded, including a  field cornet.  Among the wounded was the  Dutch military attache, Nix," who  received a bullet in his chest. Altogether the Boers captured 390  prisoners throughout the day. The  significance of the battle must not  be underestimated. It was fought  by a force of Free Staters on fiat  plains and. without shelters. The  Free Staters are now desirous of  marching on Bloemfontein, aiid the  Transvaalers are anxious to emulate the task of their allies. All  the southern Boer forces have now  formed junctures with the main  Boer army.  Perhaps of greater importance  than the victory was the capture  of British secretary papers including maps and plans of 1897, 1898  and 1899, outlining schemes for the  invasion of the Orange Free State  and the Transvaal, and giving a  plan for reaching Johannesburg  from Mafeking along Dr. Jameson's  route, amended so as to avoid mistakes. Another gives a plan for  the- march from Bloomfoutein to  Kroonstaadt via,Brandfort. Advices from Winburg, Ventersburg,'  Prieska and Kenhardt show the  colony is full of Boers. ,Tho Kenhardt rebels are marching on Cal-  vinia and others are on their way  towards Fourteen Streams. A dispatch box was found at -Samasport  containing oaths* signed by Free  Staters who surrendered. The  signers have been sent for iu order  that the general may explain the  invalidity of oaths taken under  compulsion.       t  BELGIUM DENOUNCES GRIME  Speeches in the House.  Brussels, April 5.���The minister  of foreign affairs, M. de Favereaux,  said that yesterday he forwarded  to the  prince  of Wales  and   the  queen an expression of the indignation to which so odious an outrage  had  given  rise.    Blood   called for  blood, said M. Vaudeled, the leader  of   the  Socialists,  but   this  called  forth  protests from  the  Rightists  who  recalled  the fact that Great  Britain  had always  been the best  guarantee of Belgium's neutrality.  The minister of foreign  affairs said  the Leftists ought to observe that  i-eserve which was the most elementary  of the  rules which  courtesy  rendered   incumbent   upon    them.  After hearing interchanges of remarks during  wliich  M.   Vandeled  repudiated the rightist insinuation  that his remarks at Tuesday's  Socialist meeting in' any way instigated the commission of the outrage, the president of the house declared the incident-closed.  In the senate, the president, the  duke of Urzel, expressed his reprobation and indignation of the attempt on the life of the prince of  Wales. He said:;, "I give thanks  to Heaven that the heir to the British throne has escaped the bullets  of an irresponsible boy." The ic-  marks of the president were greeted  with applause. Tile premier, M. De  Smeldenayer, endorsed this speech  and thanked Providence that the  prince escaped "the criminal attempt of a hair-brained boy."  NELSON LOCAL NEWS.  EXAMINATION   OF   SIPIOO  Steyn Lies and Prays.  ��� Pretoria, April 5,���After paying a tribute to the memory of general Joubert. president Steyn said  that the British were violating the  flag of truce and red cross, and that  bo had been compelled to report  tho matter to the neutral powers.  The president said that the attempt  to create dissensions among the  burghers by issuing proclamations  had failed. After saying that the  government had raised a temporary loan with the Transvaal, president Steyn concluded with a prayer  that the Free State be preserved  from being forced to give up its  deal ly loved independence.  Irish Guards Formed.  London, April 5���7.50 p. m.���The  army orders today contain the following: "The queen, having deemed  it desirable to commemorate the  bravery shown by tho Irish regiments in the recent operations in  South Africa, has been graciously  pleased to command that an Irish  regiment of Foot Guards, be formed  under the designation of the Irish  Guards."

Bourassa told his sister, who  lives next door at noon today, that  hit- wife was dead. She summoned  a doctor and ho at ouco saw that  the woman had been strangled to  death. The marks of the sTangier's fingers were still visible on the  woman's neck. Bourassa was an  inmate of the St. Jean de Dieu hospital for insane about four, years  ago for ��� three months. He was  then discharged as cured, but lately he has been drinking heavily.  Sipido's Crime Disclaimed.  Paris, April 3.���PresidentLoubet  today sent an officer of his house to  the British ambassador, sir Edmund  J. Moiison, to express his keen indignation at the attempt on tho  life of the prince of'Wales, and to  ask the ambassador to transmit to  the prince the president's congratulations on the happy escape of his  royal highness. The French papers  declare that Englishmen must not  hold "Europe's feeling of indignation against Britain's policy in  South Africa responsible for the  cowardly act of a demented anarchist."  William P. Kenibbs, United  States consular agent, has an interesting document on the Avail of his  oflice. It is the original draft of  casualties in his cbmpany of the  Seventh" United States regulais,  made by the first sergeant of the  compauy on the battlefield of El  Cxney just after the action. Mr.  Kenibbs' name is insctibed among'  the list of killed, but a correction is  made describing -him-"- as" Avounded.  At the moment when the list Avas  made up Mr. Kenibbs was in the  hands of the Red .Cross corps, suffering from seven bullet wound3.  The Beatrice mine is shut down  until tho snoAv goes off sufficiently  to allow supplies to be packed into  the camp, which Avill probably be  in June. The trail is now impassable, and the camp ran out of pip-  visions.  The employees of the Columbia Sc  Kootenay steamers have contributed $170 to the Canadian Patriotic Fund as a result of the appeal  to grant a half day's pay per man  to the fund.  Since he left Nolson for England  last January, Ernest Mansfield has  been instrumental in the investment of no less than $35,000 in cash  in this country, exelush'e of the  sums paid out for the A\ages of the  men he employs.

The B, C, company which is being  raised to help garrison Esquimalt  Avill be given the marine hospital  on the Indian reserve for barracks.  The new barracks aro said to be  suitable in every way and are handy  to Esquimalt.

Brussels,   April   5. ��� Late this  afternoon tlio examining magistrate  decided to confront Sipido Avith his  father and a touching scene ensued,  but Sipido paid no attention to his  father's   appeals,   maintaining  his  previous declarations.     It appears  that Sipido sent the following letter  to his father excusing  his  absence  on the ground that he had obtained  a situation at the Maison du Peuple :  "To  citizen Jean  Baptiste Sipido,  Saint Gilles, Brussels. Citizen���The  position of assistant cashier is Araeant  at the Maison  du Peuple.     There  are no further explanations to  be  given you on  the subject.    Be at  the Maison du Peuple,  room 19, tomorrow, Wednesday, betAveen 1:30  aud 2 in the afternoon."  The document is purported to be  signed by three names "Van Daert,  Vanloo and Defuet." Sipido declared today he did not know anything of the latter, but had met  him at meetings in the Maison du  Peuple. The police are continuing  the investigation iuto the affair.  The police have made a thorough  search of Sipido's home, but nothing new has beeu discovered. ' They  haA'e failed to associate him Avitli  any any anarchist association.  They belieA'e, however, that he had  an accomplice, Avho sent the bogus  letter to Sipido's father. They decline to give the name of the suspect uutil he has been arrested.  Brussels, April 5.���Jean Baptiste Sipido, the Belgian youth Avho  attempted the life of the prince of  Wales yesterday, AA'as not submitted  to any further examination today.  His attitude is dejected and he appears very tired, having had little  sleep. lie continues not to express  regret at his crime, but has repeatedly requested permission to see his  mother. No -intervieAV between  them, however, Avill be alloAved for  soihe days.  Brussels, April 5.���One of Sipido's accomplices has been arrested  and interrogated by the commissary  of-police. Sipido seems inclined to  make" a confession, and, judging  from his latest statement, the outrage Avas the outcome' of a plot.  The names of three of hisassoeiates  are now known to thepolice.  SHOT TIME IN THE VANCOUVER LIBERAL CONVENTION1  Martin's Chairman is Turned Down.  B Vancouver, April 5���[Special u> The Tribune].���The provincial  H Liberal convention adjourned this evening until 9 o'clock tomorrow  jj morning without transacting any business. The afternoon session  s lasted an hour and was the hottest political meeting ever held in  g Vancouver. Ex-attorney-general Henderson moved that Fred Peters  be temporary chairman, and Martin opposed the appointment of a  chairman at all until the committee had passed 'on the credentials.  Alderman McQueen, president of the Vancouver Association, then  laid doAvn the rules which had been formed by the Vancouver Asso-  M  jj ciation for the conduct of the convention's business.    The different  | delegations were to meet iu different place0 around town to elect the  9 members of the credentials committee, and tbe committee thus formed ;  jj AA'ould meet before the evening session, so that then everything  9 would be in shape for business.  |j E.  P.  Davis, Avho is Martin's  strongest opponent, objected to  Vancouver dictating to a convention representing the province,  Avhich provoked an attack from Martin on the "eminently fitting  remarks of the solicitor of the Canadian Pacific railway." Martin  was groaned at, aud could not proceed, until several minutes later  Davis asked for a hearing on his behalf. Finally, after a season  during AA'hich the lips of the standing delegates could be seen moving  but not a word of Avhat they said could be heard, Peters Avas elected  chairman Avith a majority over alderman McQueen.  On Martin's motion the meeting adjourned to hear the report of  the credentials committeee. Tonight the committee announced its  labors would'not be concluded until midnight. Difficulty has arisen  Avith two delegations being present from Esquimalt, one for and one  against Martin, and too many from Cariboo and Cassiar. It is said  that forty-six delegates are threatened Avith being turned out.  TTTTTTTTTTTTTrTTTTTTTTTTTTTrTTT,   [XXXXZ]  Canadian Patriotic Tand.  To the Editor of The Tribune.  Dear Sir: Why does the local  Canadian Patiiotic Fund, remain  stationary? The banks heie have  opened .subset iption lists, and  everyone has the opportunity of  adding his little quota. The fund  is a very deserving one and should  be Avell supported. During the  short time I have been in Nelson  A-cry little has been dono to" help  the fund along. 1 am glad to see  through today's Tribune that Mr  Whalley and others are getting up  an entertaiument in aid of this  fund, i sincerely trust that all  -those avIio are at all patriotic AVtll  take this opportunity to assist, by  influence and otherAvise, in making  this entertainment the success it  certainly deserves.

London, April ().���5 am.���The  Avar office issued no news yesterday  and little wan allowed to come  through from the eorrespondejits  at Bloeiiifontcin. According to the  Standard's representative there is  no sign that tho Boers intend taking the offensive, and general Clements is disposing of his forces so  as to guard against any surprise  attack, which, although improbable,  is evidently not regarded as impossible, judging from the preparations of lord Roberts.  in the visitor's book, including those  of the ambassadors of almost all  the countries of the AA'orld, as Avell  as the leading representatives of the  bench, bar, pulpit and parliament.  It is a striking testimony to the  Avidespread popularity of the prince  of AVales. Many of the foreign envoys also paid personal visits to the  foreign office, although lord Salisbury is rarely present there on  .Thursday and AA'as not there today.  Aside from visitors, telegrams from  numerous points deluged the officials of Marlborough house. The  most important AA'ere immediately  forwarded to the prince at Copenhagen. Not since the accident to  his'knee has there been such a manifestation of world-Avide sympathy.  Prince Congratulated.

Tho papers  are full of comments, and the foreign press is unanimously voicing  the profound indignation of the  British at the mudnoas of such an  act.  New Zealand Pleased With Irish.  Duulin, April 5,���The following  cable AA'as received today by a prominent citizen of Dublin from Richard  J. Seddon, premier of Now Zealand :  "New Zealanders, especially Irishmen here, are delighted at the  splendid reception given to our  good sovereign." The Independent,  commenting upon the suggestion of  the London Daily Mail that tiie  time is ripe for the goverment to  seek to "make Irish sentiment  a great bulwark of the empire,"  says "past experience would lead us  to expect that nothing particularly advantageous to the Irish Avill  result from the visit of her majesty,  but this Impenalistic_organJs right  in indicating that British statesmen have an opportunity to make  Irish sentiment a bulwark of the  empire. It is an opportunity they  have always had, but thoy have  never had the political .sagacity to  realize it."    Safe in Denmark.

Here is an extract from  a  letter  from Cape Town wliich reveals lord  Kitchener in a very characteristic  light: "The di (Terence sinco Roberts  and Kitchener arrived here is something stupendous.    Kitchener  toddles about, walks into  hotels, sniffs  after   young   subalterns   strutting  about in stall uniform, and  makes  himself generally 'unpleasant.'  The  other day he presented himself before one of these peacocky  gentlemen who was   lolling  about  in the  grounds  of  the  chief   hotel  here,  surrounded by a crowd  of female  admirers, and  abruptly  asked  the  young  gentleman  what  his  name  was.    The young gentleman sprang  up, stood to attention, and informed  him.    'And   what   are   you 'doing  here?'  said Kitchener.    'Haw !' replied the beaiiteous youth.    'I have  just   come   down    from    Moddah  Rivah!'       'Oh!'     said    Kitchener,  'Well, perhaps you  had better  go  back to Moddah Rivah.    The train  starts  at  9  o'clock   tonight!'  and  then he went in search of the  next  staff oflieer.    He is a holy terror to  the gilded  youth  who have come  out here to play at picnics."  British Sovereigns   in Ireland.  The visit of the queen to Ireland  may render,it of interest to know  that since the Norman conquest  only six other English sovereigns  have been in Ireland. Henry II.  went to Ireland iu 1171 and remained till the next year. John  was in Ireland iu 1210. After the  lapse of nearly two centuries another English monarch, Richard  II., visited Ireland in 1391 and again  in 1399. For nearly 300 years subsequently Ireland was unvisited  by any English king till 10SS,  when James II. ai rived in Ireland, from which he was expelled  by William III. in 1090. Then, after a lapse of 130 years, ��� royalty  came to Ireland in the person of  George IV., whose visit lasted .from  August 5th to September 3rd, 1821:  The queen has on three other occa-  ._*._*._*._*.  i ^*y4 ��� ^gy ��� "^jfcfr ��� ^p^,  ilf  ilf  SO   Baker   Street  iif  ilf  ilf  ilf  ilf  ilf  iti  xlf  ilf  ilf  ilf  ilf  ilf  ilf  &C0.

"Tom" Taylor, the candidate of  the   party-Jine    Conservatives    in  Revelstoke tiding has made a declaration on the eight-hour  law for  men working underground in mines  that places   him   on   record   as  a  straddler.    lie favors the principle  of the eight-hour law, but he does  not want to see anyone required to  Jive up to the  principle.    "Tom" is  a good deal like a pawnbroker who  believes in the principle of the law  that says that he .shall  charge one  per cent a month for money loaned  on  pledges,  but who nevertheless  manages to charge ten per cent because of tho fact that his  patrons  must have money.

The JIall Mines. Limited, it. being  reconstructed and there is a probability of a largo interest being acquired by Canadian capitalists.  The first steps were taken at a general meeting of the shareholders  '/ held in London March Kith. Here  | Ms a report of the meeting from the  London Financial News:  "A special general meeting of the  Hall Minos, Limited, A\*as held yesterday at Winchcrfter House, Old  Hi'oad street, E. C. Sir Joseph  Trutch presided and stated that the  meeting had been called at the request of a committee of the shareholders, to appoint a now board.  He added that since the circular  convening the meeting had been  sent to the shareholders a proposal  had been laid before tho board froin  responsible gentlemen in Canada  offering to assist in the reconstruction of the company on terms Avhich  the directors considered of a very  favorable character.  "Frederick Walker (chairman of  the shareholders' committee) then  moved: 'That the present board  bo asked to retire and to co-opt the  following gentlemen in tlieir place:  S. Boulnois, Chailes Harvey, D. II.  Gibband Robert Ward." He explained that tho committee were  influenced by one motive, which  was to do the best they could for  the shareholder?, and they had  been met by the utmost frankness  ami courtesy by the directors. The  oomniitteo was appointed tu confer  -with the boaid, and if thought advisable to prepare a scheme of reconstruction to place before the  shareholder^. The new board it was  Xjroposed to appoint were not to^bo  regarded as "permanent directors,  but they had come forward to promote a rcconstmeUon scheme. The  committee wore gioatly encouraged  in their task when the directors  "communicated to them that they  had received a proposal from" certain gentlemen wiio were coming  over here to ascertain on what  terms they could acquire the company's assets. Such a proposal he  regarded as very encouraging. The  committee did not think the best  hud been matte of the property,  and they believed that under now  management and -better auspices  . there would bo a future i'or the  JJ shareholders of the company.  "John Patten seconded the motion, which A\as carried unanimously. Votes of thanks were  then given to the committee and  djrectors, and _tlm_]jroceedJngs:_ter^  initiated."          STB0IBS   OF_'JHE   WAB.  Corporal L. Lomae, of the 01st  Howitzer Battery, iu'a letter to his  parents says: "I captured a Boer  spy the other day while out recou-  noitoring. I got separated from  the others, and as I was riding  Hhrough a drift I, came on him  suddenly, petting on his horse with  his glasses on our camp. J charged  at him at once, and before he could  get his riilo out I got him by the  back of tho neck,'and tore him out  'of hid saddle. lie fell flatoi^ his  stomach, and before he could rise J  was out of the saddle and on top of  him. He was a huge follow, but he  was of no use in my hands.

"But that bullet didn't stop me,"  adds Field, "for although it hit me  in the arm, went under the shoulder blade and out in the centre of  my back, it did not touch a bone.  I gavG-a shout to my gee-gee, and  uway I came as hard as he could  travel. But I didn't come alone,  for those Boers sent enough bullets  after me to make a jolly big cistern,  but    they    can't    shoot   if  if     they    get    excited   My dear old horse I shall  never forget, for he acted grandly.  lie fairly flew over stones as big as  himself and without a stumble or a  false step. He did his utmost to  get away, and by God's blessing he  did, without a single shot touching  him."  Signaller Bennett of the 12th  Lancers, writiug to his parents at  Hoddesdon, says that after the battle of Magersfontein he found the  body of a major of the Coldstream  Guards, who had been missing after  30 hours' fighting. In the major's  hands was clenched a photo of a  beautiful lady Avell known iu society, to whom, the troop officer  said, he was engaged to be married.  Mrs. R. Page of High Wycombe,  Bucks-, received a lotter from her  husband, private Page, of tho 1st  Oxfoidshire Light Infantry. Writing from Modder River, he said :  "As we are likely to go iuto action  every day there is no telling which  letter Avill bo the last, as it is a sure  thing some of us most go, but11  hope and trust it will not be my  lot. The Boers have got some good  trenches, aud every one has barbed  Avire in front of it. If avc were in  those trenches we should want some  shifting." The same morning that  Mrs. Page received this letter she  Avas also the recipient of an official  communication from the Avar oflice  informing her that her husband  had been killed in action.  Describing the hardships of a  forced march private Neliganof the  5th Lancashire Regiment, states  that at the end of four days'marching, whilst he was,employed making a fire, an officer came up and  offeied him Is. for a piece of 'chip.  Xeljgan adds, "I laughed at him  and told him I did 'not mind giving  him a piece, as we wdro to help  each other. He thanked me and  went off to make his breakfast. Another; officer, captain , "Upporton,  asked me for a match, and Avhen I  gave him a box with about a dozen  in il, he insisted on mo accepting  sixpence for them. One of tho men  found a crust of bread on the veldt,-  and Avhen ho' brought it in you  should ha\*c seen the troops gaze at~  it as though it were a curiosity iu a  museum."  Sergeant Bert Gould, of Brabant's Horse, writing to his mother  in Newport from Dordrecht, says:  "The photo I sent you includes the  occupants of our tent.' The reason  of my scarcity of uniform is that  it happened to be iny day to cook,.  Avhich accounts for the unpleasant  expression on some of the fellows'  .faces. _By_the AA'ay, you might send-  jne a receipt for a good plum pudding. I made what I thought to be  a A*ery excellent one on that particular day, and whether it was  that J omitted to put in the flour or  the suet I am not quite sure, bub  anyhoAV the fellows havo not spoken to me since, except that they  have christened 'me 'Lyddite.' I  would have sent you a sample wore  it not that freights lire rather high  and payday rather far off."  A Field Artillery reservist, writing to his wife at Barton, England,  says that at Spion Kop the battle  was so terrible that he thought he  should not come out alive, Ha was  only 100 yards away from general  Woodgate when he was wounded,  and he adds : "It was nearly a case  with sir Charles Warren.

He says: "Three follows ancl myself  Avero scouting about three miles  from the main body, AA'hen we came  upon a party of the enemy in ambush on a kopje.
