 DAILY EDITION   BY  MAIL  FIVE  DOLLARS A YEAR  WEEKLY EDITION  BY MAIL  TWO DOLLARS A YEAR  EIGHTH YEAR  NELSON:  MONDAY" MORNING, APRIL 9 1900.  PRICE FIVE  CENTS.  REVIEW OF AFRICAN WAR BY  Isaac N. Ford.  Nkw York, April  S.���Isaac   N.  Ford, London correspondent of the  Tribune, files his review of tho day's  news from South Africa at 1 o'clock  this morning.    He says : "Press accounts of the surrender of the British   garrison   at  Reddersberg   are  still meager   aud    unsatisfactory.  General  Roberts  reports  that the  Boer force  was  3200 strong,  with  five guns, and that tho British garrison included 591 men, of whom 11  were   either   wounded   or    killed.  While  the  British  infantry   were  outnumbered, the losses do hot indicate desperate lighting.    The force  ly'        was without artillery, and was surrounded and exposed to  an enfilading fire.    It is clear that tho Boers  are  not in   great   force,   but ' are  bent upou moving rapidly from one  exposed   point    to    another    and  swooping   down   upon   defenceless  detachments.    Their tactics are excellent, and it is not easy for  general  Roberts  to  counteract them.  The   Boers   by    these    raids    can  threaten   the   British  communications and harass greatly the superior force, yet always be able  to retire to the  eastern  hills  and keep  the   door   open   for tlieir   retreat  northward   to   Senekal.      This   is  their best expedient  for  deferring  general Roberts' march northward.  "The original  plan of campaign  on the Boer side, as  explained last  October by sympathizers,  included  these tactics and described  the district from Wepener to  Ladybraud  and Senekal as highly favorable for  their employment.    The  view held  in unofficial circles is  that general  Roberts will not allow the Boers to  draw his forces away from the railway, line   toward  the  mountains,  but will send the bulk of his  army  northward   with   the   expectation  ^ythat in this way he will compel the  raiders to concentrate  directly in  front.  "Fresh details of general Meth-  , ueu's little victory indicate that  general, do -Villebois-Mareuil,' -with  tt small force, was scouting and re-  connoiteriug with a view to conducting raiding operations in the  Kimberley district. The repot t is  confirmed that the volley was fired  by the Boers after they had raided  the 'white flag/and that several  marksmen repeatedly used tlieir  rifles after suricndcring.  "The war office-gave out at midnight a small list of casualties in*  Methuen's engagement, but there  was nothing from geueral Roberts  respecting tho raiding operations  near Bloemfontein.   ,  "There is complete silence from  Natal and only a vague report of  daily artillery fire between the two  forces at Fourteen Streams. The  Reason assigned semi-official ly for  the inaction of Roberts and Buller  is the delay in receiving remounts,  but this difficulty is now said to  have been overcome by the arrival  at Cape Town and^ Durban_qf im-_  ihehse-shipments of horses from  Buenos Ayres aud elsewhere. It is  to be hoped that the armies will  not become stiff from their protracted rest."  Gatacre too Late.  Bethany, Orange Freo State,  - April 5.���The five companies of  British infantry which were surprised by the Reddersburg commando while marching across tho  country via Dewetsdorp in ado a  . plucky stand, but as the Boers had  'three field guns .and tho Biitish  , none,���the latter were com polled to  surrender. General Gatacre arrived  too late. Reddersburg was already  occupied by the Boers aud the enemy are now threatening the lines  to the south. General Gatacre's  forces have returned hero without  having found any trace of the British column captured by the Reddersburg commando. It is impossible to estimate the British loss,,  but as the men fought stubbornly  it is probable that "they were large.  A Fine Soldier.  London, April 9.���The Bloemfontein correspondent of tho Daily  Mail, telegraphing Fiiday, and referring to the death at Boshof of  general de Villebois-Mareuil, com-  mauder of the French legion iu the  Boer army, says; "lie was a fine  specimen of the French beau sa-  breur, brave, dashing, highly intelligent, loving war, yet a polished  gentleman at home and a scholaily  nnd almost brilliant writer. He  was of far too high a type to be understood by the Boers, who showed  utter contempt, for his advice and  disobedience to his orders. He it  was who warned general Cronje  that he was being flanked by lord  Roberts. Cronje replied angrily:  'The British will never leave the  railway.' The French officer persisted, saying it was obvious that  the British were trying to outflank  tho Boers. Then Cronje shouted:  'Boy, keep still, I was a soldier before you were born."  QUEEN'S SUNDAY IN DUBLIN  Children Remembered.  DuniJN, April 8.���This morning  queen Victoria attended service, in  the private chapel of the vice-regal  lodge accompanied by the duke and  duchess of Connaught, princess  Christian and princess Henry of  Battenburg. The archbishop of  Dublin preached. Only a portion  of the household present. The  chapel is a tiny building.  This afternoon, although the  weather was unfavorable, the queen  took her customary country drive,  passing through Cabra Finglas,  Kilashane, Coppagh and Blancliards-  town and through the beautiful  valley of the Tolka. Everywhere  she met with an enthusiastic reception. The rain to some extent  marred the beauty of the drive, but  larg crowds awaited "her majesty's  return to Dublin and heartily  cheered her.  Another incident is told of the  queen's kindliness of heart. It appears that owing to train delays a  party of children arrived yesterday  too late for the children's reception. The queen, hearing of their  disappointment through lady Mayo,  had them brought to the gates of  the vice-regal lodge and then drove  slowly through their ranks on her  way to the country, of course to  their keen delight. The queen today reiterated expressions of her  extreme pleasure at the attendance  yestorday^of so many children. It  is thought tha,t quite 52,000 were  present.   DISASf ER TO IRISH RIFLES  The Eegiment Captured.  Br.oiDMFQNTKiN, Apiil 5.--[Delayed in transmission.] -The Royal  Lrish Rifles had beeu marching in  the eastern part of the Free State  collecting arms and were returning  to Bethany' Tuesday when they  were intercepted by a Boer commando, wliich had placed three  guns in position. The Irish entrenched themselves while the  mounted ' infantry started 'along  both flanks, only to find escape impossible. The Boers opened with  gun,and rifle fire. The British replied sparingly with rifle fire, husbanding their cartridges, in the  hope that help would arrive. Gradually the Boers drew into closer  quarters. _They_firedJntermittently  during Tuesday night, but did not  attempt to rush the British position until Wednesday, when the  Irishmen, who had fought tenaciously, were suffering from want of  food and water. At this time also  the Rifles had expended their last  cartridges. Finding that there  was no sign of succor they surrendered, having fought for nearly  30 hours. They lost 10 killed and  many wounded. Among the captured is captain Tennant, general  Gatacre's chief intelligence oflieer.  DtmuN, April S.- On tho arrival  this morning at Tipperary of a  traiti of excursionisis from Dublin,  a large crowd which had gathered  at the railroad hotel hooted theex-  cursionists, who--many of them  girls���were roughly handled and  pelted with mud. Some .had their  clothes torn anil others were even  struck. Almost at the same time a  rack of hay, the property of a firm  who had given their employees a  holiday to go to Dublin, was set on  fire aud the rioters prevented any  attempt to extinguish the flames.  When the military brought the fire  hose to the scene they found it had  been out in twenty places.  ^De Villebois-Mareuil Buried.  Boshof, Orange Free State, April  0.���The prisoners captured by the  British yesterday and brought in  today include many Frenchmen.  They present a wet and bedraggled  appearance. Lord Methuen has  complimented his men on their behaviour. Captains Boyle and Williams of the yeomanry and general  de Villebois-Mareuil were buried today with military honors.  OUTBREAKS IN" SWASILAND  Famous Chief Killed.  Lorenzo Marquez, April G.���A  runner who has just arrived here  from Sobobo's Kraal, Swasiland,  says Sobobo has been killed and  his women have been tied up with  ropes. Unrest is increasing in the  country which is in. a.most unsettled state, bordering on a reign of  terror, in the. absence of "white  man's law." Many natives have  been threatened, and in one district  they have been completely killed  off. A messenger . from Bromers-  dorp, Swasiland, says the Boers are  making presents to the queen and  are seeking permission to pass  through Swasiland armed.  M. Quezi, the famous old Swasi  chief, and two women of his household with their infants have all  been assegaied at M. Quezi's kraal.  The kraal was sacked and burned  and the chief's son captured. Numerous bands are marching about,  and are marauding in every direction.  This correspondent found M.  Quezi's son in charge of two natives, who admitted the killing of  the chief, but said they had followed the orders of the Swasi  queen.  MANILA REBELS GET BOLD  i  Guerrilla Bands Swarm.  Manila, April 8.���Reports of encounters between the ..American  troops and the insurgents continue  to arrive from many points. On  Friday Captain Sturgis, while recon-  noitering, struck an insurgent outpost on Hovalinhs road, five miles  distant from Manila, killing two  and capturing ten. All were in  full uniform. Captain Sturgis*  force was not large enough to pursue the main body, A detachment  of the -42U.CI'vniauhvyr~*>iiiox-- won  scouting iu Laguna province, was  pursued by the 'insurgents and  obliged to take refuge in a- church  at Paeto, where the Americans repelled the. rebels until reinforcements arrived.    '  Lieutenant Gordon,' with a - company of the 10th ^infantry,,while  scouting near Aparri, Cayagan province, engaged 230 insurgents.  Lieutenant Gordon was wounded.  A sergeant and corporal of company L., 18th infantry,' were killed  in a severe fight in Capiz province,  island of Panay. The insurgents  made a night attack upon Calbayon,  island of Samar. They killed the  sentry, swarmed into the town and  searched the house of majpr Gil-  more of the 43rd infantry, who was  absent, They killed his cook. Ultimately the Americans drove them  out of the town, killing four and  capturing twelve.  General Young, commanding in  North Luzon, has made-several -requests for reinforcements representing that his force is inadequate,  that the .men are exhausted by the  necessity of constant vigilance,  that he is unable to garrison the  towns in his jurisdiction, and that  the insnrgents are returning to the  district and killing theamigoes and  that it is necessary for him to inflict punishment in several sections  before the rainy season begins.  General James Bell, who is in command in Southern Luzon, has made  similar representations.  Steyn's Address.  Lorenzo, Marquez, April 0. --  President Steyn in his address to  the Free State Volksraad at Kroon-  stadt, on Wednesday, April 4th,"  said the burghers were in a better  position than at the commencement  of hostilities. lie threatened those  who had surrendered to the British,  a$d announced that the Free States  had borrowed half a million* from  the Transvaal government for the  purposes of war. Referring to correspondence with lord Salisbury he  observed: "The destiny of the republic is in higher hands than those  of the British government, namely  in the hands of the people of France,  Russia and Germany, who are agitating for intej'vention. The war  will soon end. If it be true that  Boer prisoners have been sent to  St. Helena, we would be justified in  consigning the British prisoners to  the lowest depths of the Johannesburg mines."  A Contradictory Dispatch.  Amwal North, April 7,���-The  Royal Irish Rilles, which have been  Steyn's Brother Captured.  Bloemfontkin, April 7.���Another of Mr. Steyn's brothers was captured near Karee siding yesterday  aud arrived here today.  falling back fi-om Rouxville, arrived  here safely last night, Tlieir retirement was covered by a detachment  sent by general,Brabant, frustrating the Bpeis and interrupting  movements of the enemy from  Rouxville. Lieutenant Bonsey and  two men of Brabant's detachment  of the Border ;1 >rse, are missing.  Ten Boers were killed in the rear  guard action. _ A strong Boer commando is reported to be at Walse-  kop, fourteen miles west of Rouxville.  NEWS IS UNSATISFACTORY  Events in' the Free State.  London, Ap;>il 9.-4:50 a.m.���  There is little iu today's news to  bring satisfaction. Assurances that  nothing need be'feared even if the  railways and.-telegraphs are cut  and Bloemfontein isolated, together  with the news that the ladies and  other civilians'are being ordered  away, do not augur well.- There  are rumors from Cape Town that  the telegraph >vires were already  cut yesterday .(Sunday), and also  that the Hussars, who were sent to  the relief of the, Royal Irish Rifles,  aro also missing,, although probably,  those are the ot:fccome of Boer exaggerations designed to encourage  the burghers.  _VJ  The attempt!,pf general Colville  to catch the Bc'tsr leaders in conference at Reitfont'ein failed, probably  because of the lack of cavalry.    A  belated   Boer   dispatch says   that  bayonets were being made for the  foreign legion under the late general  de   Villebois-Mareuil.     The  Boers  are boasting that the Colesberg and  Stormberg'coumiandoes, numbering  6000 men, with ten cannon and 750  wagons, have gotten safely through.  A Boer account of the Bloemfon-  teiii waterworks  affair says: "Colonel Broadwood evacuated Thaba  Nehu owing to the advance of commandant   Oliviei*- from  the south.  The federal troops found the British camp in peaceful slumber.-  General Dewey inimdiiitciY-.niflc0''-' K~  -gunsanct the commandoes in such  positions as to surround the British,, who did not have time'to recover from their surprise."  The American scout, Burnham,  testifies to the terrific pace with  which the Boer commandoes covered the ground, aud the ease with  which they move their guns.  , The Boers aro displaying increased activity in Natal, but there  is no sign that general Buller is  moving.  Mafeking twas still besieged oh  April 1st.' The garrison was suffering severely from lack of bread,  and a mixture of oats, bran aud  'meal was' doing duty for that article, which is described as "eoai.se  in substance, of the color of ginger,  bread and of tho consistency of  Norwegian pie."  Outrage in Ohio.  Col.umhl'S, Ohio, April S,���- A special to the Ohio State Journal from  Barnesville, Ohio,-says: "Last night  two masked men entered the house  of Mrs. James Warrack, an aged  widow, five miles south of the  city. Living' with Mrs. Warrack  were her granddaughter aud  a youngJ lady, and her grandson,  Clarence Warrack. The women  were terrified,when wakened by  tho threats of the intruders, but  young Warrack, on hearing them,  ordered them to leave. A sen (lie  ensued, in which Warrack was  shot and killed. The burglars then  bound tho women and1 ransacked  the house, but secured only six  cents in money. It wtis daylight  before one of the women freed herself and gave the alarm. < Bloodhounds will bo placed on, tlio trail  of tho murderers.  Yacht Club in Trouble.  Nkw York, April 8.���The Tribune  this morning says: "About. $8000 of  tiie funds of the tteawanhaka Corinthian Yacht Club is missing, and  so is W. C. .Winslow, the stenographer of Frank S. Hastings, who  is treasurer of the club. The Bank  of America, where Mr. Hastings  kept the club's funds, paid out $8000  on four checks, which apparently  were signed by Mr. Hasting", but  which Mr. Hastings says were  forged. The young man has been  speculating heavily lately and has  met with ill luck. It is not thought  he had any of tho $8000 left when  he vauis hod."  REMOUNTS. ARE ARRVIINC  Ladies Havc to Leave, _  London, April 9.���The Bloemfontein correspondent of the Daily  Telegraph, in a dispatch dated Friday, April Oth, say��: "All is quiet  here. Remounts and reinforcements  are arriving, and, preparations -are  being made to deal with the euemy.  Last Tuesday many of tho historic  regiments, the Scots Greys, the In-  niskilling Dragoons and the Lancers  could not muster a hundred mounted-men,-while artillery horses-were  very scarce."  The Capetown correspondent of  tho Daily News, telegraphing Friday, says: "Owing to a lack of  horses and the suffering of the men  from pneumonia due to thin clothing, lord Roberts has decided not  to make a big move until the troops  aro provided with thicker clothing."  The Bloemfontein correspondent  of tho Morning Post, telegraphing  Friday, says: "No anxiety need  be felt as to tho security of Bloemfontein, although tho enemy may  Succeed in destroying telegraph  lines, and even in cutting the railway for a brief period. A number  of civilians, including lady Bentinek and lady Edward Cecil, who  arrived here recently from Cape  Town, loft today hr compliance  with a general order issued by the  authorities."  The Martin Liberals.  Vancouver, April 7.���(Special to  Tho Tribune.] After the Liberal  convention adjourned last evening  a mooting of premier Martin's supporters was held in the Vancouver  Liberal Association's rooms. A  resolution wiw passed endorsing  Martin's platform and tho stand  t:tken by governor Mclnnes in calling on Alartin. Another resolution  was also passed expressing confidence iu the Laurier administration. Premier Alartin leaves next  week on a tour through Kootenay  and Cariboo.  to  Minister Fielding's Surplus.  Ottawa,   April   7.���[Special  The Tribune,] - A statement of tho  finances of the Dominion for  tho  FOUR BURGLARIES SUNDAY  But Little Taken.  Four burglaries were committed  in Nelson on Sunday morning, but  an odd feature of the matter is that  nothing of value was stolen so far  as can be ascertained, save in one  case.  The premises selected by the burglars were those of the Nelson Hardware Company, the Athabasca Saloon, the Canada Book & Drug  Company and McDonald's confectionary store in the Madden block.  At the Nelson Hardware Company's  store a window in the rear was  opened. The cash drawer in the  office was forced open and torn  from the fastenings, but'as it was  absolutely enipty the- thieves secured nothing. The till iu the  front of the office was not tampered with nor, as far as can be  learned from a'brief inspection,  were any revolvers, cutlery or other  goods taken. Some time ago the  store was entered in a similar manner and a quantity of firearms abstracted. The thief was captured  and is now serving two years in the  penitentiary. i  At McDonald's store on Ward  street the front door was. opened,  apparently by picking the ' lock.  About 2 o'clock Sunday morning  one of the constables on duty tried  the door aud found it securely  locked. A few hours later it was  open and there were indications  that the premises had been searched.  Nothing was missing.  Entrance to the Athabasca saloon was secured through the Kootenay street door, which the proprietor declares was shut securely when  -he left the building. No money  had been left about.the saloon and  no goods are missing.   ~  The thieves cut a panel out of the  back door at the Canada Book &;  Drug Company's store, raised the  bar which secured the entrance and  shook the key out of the look.   The  which     was    taken.     Apparently  nothing els'e was interfered with.  The -police state, that Sunday  morning was exceptionally quiet,  only-half a dozen people being on  the streets after, 2 o'clock. There  is no clue to the identity of the  burglars.    nine months of the fiscal year, ending March 31st, appears in today's  Canada Gazette. The revenue for  that time was $30,850,078, compared  with $33,058,841 for the same nine  months last year, or a gain of $3,-  701,231. The expenditure was $20,-  051,536, an increase of .$893,030 over  1899, or a betterment of $2,807,591.  There was a capital expenditure of  $0,457,030. about half a million dollars lower than for the same period  the previous year. For the month  of March alone there is a gain of  $897,855 in revenue and a decrease  in expenditure of $490,517. The  surplus, minister Fielding an-_  nounced in the budget, will be more  than realized.  PRODUCT OF TWO SMELTERS  For the Year 1899.  The Tribune .has always maintained that British Columbia would  not have its full share of prosperity  until   every   ton   of ore from   its  metalliferous mines was smelted in  the province.      During   1899, the  Hall Mines smelter at Nelson pro  duced 5390 o#unces of gold, 672,706  ounces of silver, 1,508,768 pounds of  copper, and 2,090,550 pounds of lead.  The Canadian   Pacific   smelter at  Trail  ' produced   during   the same  time 52,218 ounces  of gold, 101,410  ounces    of    silver,    and   2,578,717  pounds  of copper.     The value of  this gold,  silver, copper  and  lead  was  approximately   $2,500,000,  or  about one- third of the total  value  of the gold, silver, copper and lead  ores mined in Kootenay and Yale  districts.    Had all the ores been  treated at local smelters, instead of  smelters   in   the    United    States,  British Columbia would today have  1000 more population, and  surely,  1000 people living here are of more  benefit to our merchants and real  estate owners than the same number living at points in Nebraska,'  Colorado,    Montana,   Washing^oo  of all of the many'leaders aipiring  to place British Columbia on a pedestal, with prosperity for a foundation, has any idea how prosperity-  can be brought about?  Fell Down Ymir Shaft,  N. Bordereau, an employee of the  Ymir mine was brought to the gen-  ez*al hospital on Saturday badly  battered up as the rosult of a fall  down the shaft at the mine. Bordereau had a remarkably narrow  escape from death, and his injuries  are about as numerous as a man  could sustain without losing his  life. When" brought out " of the  shaft his scalp was terribly lacerated, and as the man was unconscious it was thought his scull was  fractured. It was learned later'  that the skull was intact and the  injury confined to the scalp. His  collar-bone was fractured, both  arms broken at the wrists and the  left leg broken at the ankle. Dr.  Rose, house.physiciau at_the_ ho;:^  pital, went to the mine and dressed  the wounds and fractures, after  which Bordereau was brought into  tho eitjr, lie .suffered intensely  and was kept under the influence of  morphine for some hours. Yesterday ho became rational, but could  not give any explanation as to how  he came to fall down tiie shaft.  Bordereau is a short man of powerful physique.  Post Office Returns.'  The seven days ending on Saturday at midnight have been enumeration week'at the Nelson postofiice.  During this period a record has  been made of every piece of mail  handled by the office, of which the  following is tho statement, together  with the figures for tho two preceding years by way of comparison:  Kii itineration return of the Nelson pobt ollleo  for thu week ending April "tli;  Third Kourth  I'o=t   Cla>>s Class    Foreign Am't  Letters CanK llsui'r Mat t'c   1'iirocls  t'ost.  i'xio    r< to.     sr��     '.m      87 i    $nno 15  isifl, . i>:*n    r.<c>     ,vo      :��       ,. ���_'     ���i>n &i  lS'iS      7,138       1(1!       383    '   Si 2       '.'10 Itf  A glance at tho principal item's,  the letters handled and the postage totals, indicates a remarkable  increase, the percentage being about  90 in tho first and 50 in tho second.  Boers Near Bloemfontein.  Budkmkontein, April 7.--The  Boers are reported in force to the  south, threatening the railway,  wliich, however, is strongly protected. The British pickets at  Springfield, eight miles distant,  wore attacked today by Boors advancing from tho waterworks.  Remounts aro rapidly arriving.  Tho Britis.li are in high spirits and  anxious to advance.  DID NOT LONG ENJOY WEALTH  o      "Won in the Slocan.  Scott McDonald, the well known  mining man, is dead from consumption, and is buried at Spokane. He  had the tips and downs of many of  the men who follow mining. Born  in St. Charles county, Missouri, in  1851, he came to Butte, Montana,  where he had a married sister  living, in 1869. He worked iu the-  mines as a laborer, but was ambitious, and before leaving Butte  he filled the responsible position of-'  superintendent of the Lexington;  at one time one of Butte's famous  mines.  He was in the  first  rush  to  tiie  Coeur d'Aleues, in 1884, and  staked  the Poorman and acquired interests  in other claims, most of which  ho  lost through  litigation.,   He  quit  mining for awhile and engaged in  the livery business at Wallace, and  was still engaged in  that business  when he arrived at Ainsworth, in  the spring of 1891, as superiritend-  .eut'of the properties  owned by Ar  W. McCune of Salt Lake.   He did  some work on the Krao and abandoned it.    Tlfen he begau work on  the Skyline, aud it is generally believed he made that property pay.  His next operations were in the .  Slocan, where he and  McCune had  obtained interests along with Steve  Bailey in the fall of 1891, Bailey  worked the properties  until  1895,  when  a  disagreement   arose, over   '  ore  shipments.      Finally   Bailey's  interests   in    the   famous   Payne  group were purchased by McCune ,  and McDonald and their associates.  McDonald took charge of the Payne,  and it was under his  management  that the mine paid  over a million..,  dollars  in  dividends  in  loss  than  eighteeu months. - It was then incorporated and the control  of the  company passed into the  hadds of  Montreal operators.     McDonald, it'  is said, sold all his holdings in, the  it iu the Last Chance, which is now  almost-as valuable a property "as  the Payne.  When at" Ainsworth McDonald  met and married Miss Agnes Smith,  a niece of the late G. B. Wright,  and who, with two children, survives him.  Affecting Miners on Contract.  In the opening of tho *. county  court at Rossland on Saturday a  case of great interest to all minors  and others who work by the piece  aud not for days' wages, came up.  Tlio case, which was that of Baldwin -vs.. Slceman, turned' upou the  fact whether the issue was one of  wages or one of contract. The defendant, Sleeman, was cutting wood.,  for tho White Bear, and owed rent  to the plaintiff, Baldwin, who gar-  nisheed the White Boar for the  amount that company owed the defendant. Tho amount thus hold  was $40. The defendant claimed $40  exemption as a wage _worker.  The"counsel"for plaintiff, Mr. Hodge,  claimed that the cutting of wood  was done under contract and therefore the exemption claimed did not  hold. Counsel for the defendant,  J?. Armstrong, held and showed  rulings that whether the labor was  paid by day or per piece tlio money  thus earned wris wages, lie urged  that if tho contrary was ruled that  every miner in the camp under tho  contract system would not be able  to claim that exemption which tho  law had specially provided for the  wage earner. Judga Forin ruled  that the exemption applied to those  who labored with their hands, oven  in case they did employ an assistant. Tho exemption, therefore, was  sustained.        ___  Burnhani Captured, but Escapes. ���  Lonhon, April 8.���A special dispatch from Bloemfontein, .dated  April 5th, says tho American scout,  F. It. Burnham, was captured near  Thaba Nehu, but< made his escape  again. Ho wandered about Cor two  clays, finally roaching the camp of  the 12th Lancers in a weak state.  He says the Boors are determined,  but they realize that their eventual  defeat is inevitable.  A Boer Eumor.  Pretoria, April 0.���It is reported  that general Dewet attacked aud  defeated a largo force of British  cavalry at Dowot's Dorp, southeast  of Bloemfontein, capturing 150  prisoners and a large quantity of  ammunition and camp stores, and  indicting heavy loss. Tho federal  loss, it is stated, was two killed and  four wounded. All is quiet with  the other commandoes. THE TRIBUNE:  NELSON B. C MONDAY,  APRIL 9  1900  &-���  if  It  IP*  I*-'  1^.

'At tlio  request of a Mr.  Croascfciile "and a-  Mr. Robertson, both of JSTolson, the  institute passed a resolution strongly disapproving of and a&king  for  the repeal of the hnv that prevents  men  from   being   worked   underground in metalliferous mines for  ' more than eight hours in a day of  twenty-four hours.   The same Canadian Mining Institute met in Montreal last month, and iii a review of  the ininingjudustry_hi British .Columbia for the year 1S09, the secretary said:   "Jt may safely be said  " that, taken as a whole, tho results  " show that there has been  a  very  " material   and   real advance.    In  " certain  districts' and in   certain  " branches of the industry, the re-  " suits obtained have not been alto-  '��� gether satisfactory; but,, on  the  " other  hand,  other  districts  aud  " other branches have shown  such  " si remarkable growth, that, when  " a general average is  struck, it  is  " found that there is an ample mar-  " gin of progress and advancement  " to   the   credit   of the year.    So  " much has been   said   about the  " labor troubles, much of which is  " absolutely untrue, and such wide  " circulation has been given to these  'LtaIes,_thatJfc-is .probably.-best to  " give a summary of the conditions.1'  The summary follows, and it closes  with tho following words: "It looks  " as if a compromise [between  the'  " disputing mine owners and mine  " workers] would bo effected short-  " ly and sensibly, for as usual, the  " right is not all on one side." Surely the British Columbia that has  been maligned and blackened by  the mine owners and tlieir hired  newspapers for nearly a year cannot be the British Columbia referred  to by the members of the Canadian  Mining Institute that met in Montreal last March. Let another year  only pass, and not a single member  of the Canadian Mining Institute  will admit that he voted at Nelson  for tho resolution askiug that the  eight-hour law be repealed. Time  works changes.  Thk result of the Vancouver convention is a draw. While Martin  was not strong enough to obtain a  declaration that he was the party's  leader in this province, he was  strong enough to prevent his opponents from passing a resolution declaring he was not the party's leader. Martin had to fight the party  organization and the federal government, and were the convention  to be held over again, he would  surely carry it, for the average  man, be he Grit or Tory, likes to be  led by a lighter���by a man who can  give and take blows. It is within  bounds to say that no other man in  the province has today a larger  larger personal following than "Joe"  Martin, a man that is detested byv  the Conservatives and hated by the  Liberals.  The men whom "Joe" Martin  called "white-shirted hoboes" will  meet at Rossland tomorrow and  nominate the man whom the "white-  shirted hoboes" were honoring  when "Joe" let loose the phrase  that will stick to them as long as  they live.  The Lardeau's Biff Mine.  The Nettie L. force i.s being increased daily and four men are now  sacking ore. The ore houses, both  at the mine and Ferguson, are  nearly filled, awaiting transportation ��� Development is being pushed  m all the woi-Kiugh, auu-uui/ tuc'  ore directly encountered is put out.  The lower tunnel has so drained the  upper workings thdt a discontinuance of work will not ,be necessary  this spring, as last. The * Nettie L.  ���will employ over a hundred men a*  year, hence at the present rate, $3.50  per eight-hour shift. It might just  be, noted that manager Pool had  the eight-hour law in vogue before  there was any legislation of this  kind in tho province. Practical  managers, good minors, and unlimited ore bodies inakeaprofitablo  combination, and in the Nettie L,  this is the happy state of affairs.  *L'0^ ���  __* '0** ��� 0* '0^ ' 0** '00* ��� 0^ 't*? ��� 0* '0^ ' *_* '0*'''/���� '0_*'��� ____��� 1j& 1^^* ^"^ '^' ^^ * m1' SS^ 'mS** ^|^ * ^9*' ^< ��� ^^�� ^^ . >^. ^^ ��� "��^ .W  ^.^S^. ���'^���^.���^ ���*����. ���^.���^fc.'^.'W. ���>��*���>����. ���^���^���^.���^���^.

Tlio secret of the intention to  conduct an experiment in mobilization some time during this spring  and incidentally to serve notice on  such Fenians as may be disposed to  think seriously of again invading  (Canada, that the adventure would  be a somewhat dangerous one is  pretty well kept in Toronto, but  our neighbors across the line seem  to know all about it. The Buffalo  Sunday Express says:  "At some date within the next  few weeks (no notice will be given  of the day) an order will be wired  from Ottawa for ,a number of Ontario corps to defend the Niagara  frontier from an attack by Uncle  Sam's army.

Officers of regiments will be as much  in the dark as their men as to the  time the call Avill come and as to  the number of troops required.    It  will be a practical lesson in mobilization, and a practical test of the  Canadian militia officer's resourcefulness iii meeting an emergency.  The all-important matters of   immediate   transportation,   adequate  supplies and proper equipment will  be a part of the lesson to be well  learned and reports will be required  from all those taking part, so that  the militia department shall be informed as to the comparative capabilities of the officers, and as to the  success "or failure of the experiment.  "Most interesting to those along  the Niagara frontier wilHnean the  presence  of the British troops  on  ground,  made historic nearly  100  years ago.    Fort Erie is to be occupied again, and Luudy's Lane will  re-echo with the shouts of charging  soldiers  and the  roar of artillery.:  It will be made as realistic as mimic  war can be, and if the people ofi  Buffalo should be awakened some  fine April morning by the boom of  cannon across the river; they will  understand that it is not au army  of  invasion   at our   doors   but a  peaceful nation practising at war in  the interests of peace.

Now  that some one who evidently knows  all about the subject tells our neighbors, we in Toronto might as well  be warned also that the call of  bugles in the streets some night and  the rush of men to the armory does  not mean war, but only an experiment in getting ready hurriedly.  ALL    SORTS     OF    PARAGRAPHS.  o    Some of the British Columbian  Chinese seem to be making east, in  which movement many here will  wish them good speed, as the sooner  that Eastern Canada learns something practically of the Chinese  problem the bettei*. A party of 42  Chinamen is said to have been lately  at Toronto, hoping sometime to  cross over to the United States on  the quiet. Four of them were,  however, lately caught in the act at  Buffalo. .���  Ontario is.now receiving quite a  little immigration. Thus 4015 steerage passengers settled in the province during 1899, in addition to  others from the United States.  People are finding that there is still  ample opportunity for settlement  in the eastern province.  ��� It is stated that the Doukhobors  are working on .the Rainy River  railway in Manitoba for a dollar, a  day, a reduction by one-third of  the rate formerly paid to Canadian  railroaders. One result of this  state-aided immigration from continental Europe. -  A bill has been introduced into  the Ontario legislature to provide'  that in towns and municipal districts of that province, reeves and  councillors shall be elected for terms  of two years, instead of annually.  The bill is receiving considerable  support, but its further consideration has been deferred, and, it is  likely that it will not be pressed  this session.    -  Mr. Charlton, M. P., rightly declares that many of the speeches  delivered in the Dominion house of  commons, are so long as not only to  be unconvincing, but actual burdens  to the flesh. They aro prolix to ji  degree and are after rather of the  nature of dry and dreary essays,  than effective debate addresses.  One good result of tlio large number of members of the British house  of commons���though there aro  otherwise some strong objections to  be brought against the largeness of  its'membership���is that even the  best and brightest of its speakers,  never venture on an unduly long  speech. Nobody at Westminster  would listen to a five hour speech,  even if its utterer j>ossessed the  combined eloquence and incisive-  ness of a Gladstone and a Disraeli.  E. J.

Huffman    was    badly  hurt nt the Nelson Saw & Planing Mills on Saturday. He was operating a saw when the blade  struck bis left liu nil just where the lingers .join.  The thumb and index finger were mangled so  that amputation was necessary. Drs. Hall and  AIcLcniiiui performed the operation at the general hospital.  A. B. MacCallum lias been added  to the list of Nelson militiamen who will take  service with the new corps to garrison Ksqni-  ninlt. Unless some unforeseen contingency  arises the men will leave tonight for the Coast,  in charge of corporal While, who has just received his chevrons.  A resident of Nelson has discovered the champion method of repressing a small  boy who required .subduing if an}- youugstcr ever  did. The lad in question i.s only nine years old,  but ho has been before tho police and was generally pronounced incorrigible, finally the father  was struck by a happy thought. Ho took tho  lad's clothes and furnished him with a small  girl's outfit, informing the boy that he could not  get boys'clothes again until he earned sudioicnt  to pay for them. ��� The scheme worked like inigic.  That lad could not be tempted to go outdoors by  any inducement, and he works enthusiastically  to escape from the bondage of skirts. _  Commodore Gore left last night  on a tour of inspection up the Columbia. The  steamer Kossland, which has been tied up at Nakusp since January 18th for painting and repairs,  is now in the water again.  The   first   real  advance   in   the  direction of raising tho barge at tho CR.

The cost would he about  ��2000.  The people who have meters installed are beginning to learn what it i.s to economize in-the use of electric and gas light. One  lirm who has 1111 electric meter installed has al-  readv learned that they were burning SfH.nO  worth of light a month and only paying Slli 50 for  it. II, is safe to say that there are fully a hundred others who have been getting from the city  three and four times as much light us they wero  paying for.  Dr. Rose returned yesterday evening from Ymir, where he was detained a day  through an accident which befell William O.  Turner, mine foreman.
