 DAILY  EDITION   BY  MAIL-  FIVE   DOLLARS A YEAR  une  WEEKLY EDITION BY MAIL  TWO  DOLLARS A YEAR-  EIGHTH YEAR  NELSOK:   SATURDAY MOJRNTNG, APRTL 14 1900.  PRICE FIVE  CENTS.  BRAOSTREET'S STATEMENT  Trade Satisfactory.  Nkw Yomc, April 13.���Tomorrow morning Bradstreots will say:  Backward spring weather conditions have figured considerably in  distributive trade reports this week,  and in connection with some weakness in tho prices of loading staples  they havc imparted an appearance  of irregularity to the general situation. Another of those downward  swings in the prices in agricultural  and staples is exhibited this week  in slightly lowered prices for the  recalls, partly because of the  bearish position of immediate supplies, and partly because of the  better than expected government  crop report which is taken to indicate a possible winter wheat yield  in excess of all records. The crops'  outlook, as a whole, favors the expectation of large yields of wheat,  Corn and cotton.  : Evidences accumulate that active  missionary work iu favor of lower  prices for iron and steel is at last  bearing fruit. Pig iron is no lower  and stocks as a whole are claimed  to be uo larger, than a month ago.  The increasing foreign interest in  iron and steel is still an encouraging  feature'of the trade just now, the  strength of iron abroad, and particularly iu ��� Great' Britain, being  most marked.  Net earnings' .returns for February make a satisfactory showing,  aggregating for ninety roads $59,-  214,073 in gross and $19,0!)1.07S'in  net, being gains respectively of 21  and 27 per cent over the same  month a year ago.  Bank clearings note some reduction, due possibly to the subsidence  ofwnpeculatioii in an aggregate of  $1,S75,4 25,005, a decreaso of 3 per  cent from those of last week and  of 11.2 per cent from this week a  year ago, but a gain of 72 per cent  over 1S0S and of 05 per cent over  1S97. Relatively the best trade reports cOme from the Pacific coast,  where business is generally* active  and the cr.op outlook is, a very satisfactory one, comparing favorably,  as thoy do, with the same month a  year ago, when railway traffic was  quite heavy.- "Increases iu gross receipts for March are not relatively  as largo as tho^o reported in February,- but. still the showing iri' an excellent one, and one which, if maintained throughout the year, would  result'iu enormous profits to the  transportation interest.  Largo Argentine   shipments   in  March   were   responsible   for   the  heavy gain iu European -wheat sup  plies in that month, Avhich  ims, ou Monday morning. , They  gallantly withstood, eveiy attack  on Monday and agaiust a night  attack on Tuesday. Thursday there  was a continuous shelling and rifle  fire. "AVe are confident of being  able to repulse any attack. Food  is plentiful. Our casualties in the  circumstances aro small. The  brunt of the fighting, as also of the  loss, has. been borne by tho Cape  Mounted .Riflemen."  BOER ADVANCE IS CHECKED  almost  balanced decreases shown iu American and Australian stocks, the result being an aggregate world's  supply in April of 17."5,0S5,000 bushels, a decrease of only "one million  bushels during March or about the  same decrease as was noted in  Mardi a year ago.  While railroad stocks are strong  in New York, securities are marked  {-and ia some cas-cs-havc -scored-ad-,"  vancos. Industrials are weak, and  the steel group in particular has  declined on the apparent liquidation by disappointed holders of the  common stocks of such companies.  The speculation has been narrow  and the "holidays abroad, with a  two days* recess at the end, of the  week on the stock, exchange1 at  New York- and other American  cities, tended to diminish public  interest.  London has continued to buy  Americans to some extent, and the  hiarket here disregards the strength  of tho exchange and tiie possibility  of gold exports in the near future.  Wheat, including Hour shipments  for the week, aggregates? 2S,JW5,(Jj3  bushels against 3,S30,903 bushels  hibt week, J,903,'1S9 bushels in the  corresponding week of 1899 and  4.125,322 bushels in 1898.  Canadian trade is ropoited as  'fairly healthy and a littb bettor  than last year at some markets.  Montreal reports orders for spring  delivery nearly all slapped, and  that navigation will open in about  ten days. Prices aro firm, but buyers arc acting with caution owing  to the great advances shown as  compared with a yoar ago. An improved jobbing distribution is reported in the Maritime provinces,  bat collections are still slow.  PROPOSED FARMERS' TRUST  International Conference.  .Minneapolis,. April 13. ��� The  Journal says: "All the farmers of  the world in a sort of international  trust to restrict the production of  3 wheat and raise prices, is the plan  wliich ifc is hoped to carry into  effect at the International Agricultural Conference in Paris, July  Ofcli, 1900. It is proposed to ask the  farmers of the world to reduce the  wheat output by 20 per cent and  not to sell a bushel for less than a  dollar.  "J. C. Hanley of St. Paul, executive agent of the Farmers' Alliance  and Industrial Union, "the National  Cotton Growers' Association of the  Mississippi Valley and the National  Grain Growers' Association, is the  chief promoter of .the international  agricultural trust:in America. Professor Rutland of the.University of  Fribourg is the chief promoter of  the plan in Europe. The idea;.was  conceived by these two men independently.  "Mr. Mauley has been interested in  many 'hold your wheat' sphemes,  and is prominently associated with  the farmers, elevator and ~ various  co-operative undertakings."  New Division Formed.  Bloe.mkonti-hn, April 13.���A now  division consisting of two brigades  has been formed under general Ian  Hamilton. General'Huttou's brigade is composed, of Canadians,  New Zealanders and till the Australians except1 tlio. cavalry.

General Ridley's brigade comprises  all the South African troops.  General War News.  Lonijon. April 14.���4:15 a. m.���  "The forward movement of the  Boers is checked," says lord Roberts. This is taken to mean not by  fighting, but by dispositions to head  off their advance and bar their way  to vulnerable points in the lines of  British communications. Relief is  on the way to Wepener. The Boers  iu Natal appear incapable of developing an aggressive movement  at Elandslaagte. -Lord Methuen is  at Zwartkopfontein, twelve miles  east of Boshof,, and is sending small  swift eolunius through the adjacent  country. Lord Chesham, commanding one of these, encountered a  small commando ten miles southeast of Zwartkopfontein. He found  most of; the farms occupied by  women and children only.  An editorial note in tho Daily  Mail says Mafeking is in a very bad  way, and hope of relief is far off as  no "force is advancing from the  south.

After  M. Loubet's visit tomorrow these  scaffoldings will be rebui and the  interrupted work of installation  will be lesumed. M. Loubet has decided to celebrate the inauguration  by pardoning all army and navy  prisoners who were undergoing sentences for minor offence.  EASTER SUNDAY SERVICES  Daily  dated  News of the Enemy.

EVERYTHING SATISEACTORY  CannotxRattle 'Bobs.'  Loxnox, April 14.���Tho Bloemfontein correspondent of the Times,  telegraphing Friday, says ; "Everything is going on satisfactorily.  Owing to the enemy's enterprise,  necessity has arisen for a movement in the southeastern division  of the Free State, and for strategic  reasons, troop trains have monopolized the raihvay, but the Boer  raids are only what was anticipated as a result 'of the halt in our  advance.  "We, in Bloemfontein, are full of  admiration at the- calmness with  wliich headquarters , has received  these~incidehts.'*HalffOf the object  of the enemy has failed, since lord  Roberts has refused to be drawn  into complications, but has ,frustrated the enterprise by making  preparations to checkmate it, almost without Bloemfontein being  aware that movements of troops  had taken place."    ,;v  Wilkinson's Platitudes.  London, April 14.���Spencer Wilkinson, discusbing-the military situation in the Morning^Post, says:  "The objective of tho 9000 Boers  south <, of Dewet's Dorp is either  colonel Dalgetty's force, the bridge  at Bethulie or the country south of  tiie Orange river. Whatever is tho  object, lord-Roberts,lias apparently  checked it, and if so tiie' equipment"  and reorganization of the- British  force can proceed uninterruptedly,  and the new campaign will murcly  begin on the initiative of lord  Roberts. * -  *  The Queen's Good Friday.

At the  morning service several infant? will  be baptized and the choir will render a choice xerogram of music, including solos and duets.  The services throughout the week  at the church of Mary Immaculate  have been  of unsual interest and  havo been very largely attended.  Thursday night  was   Holy night,  commemorating the institution  of  the noly Eucharist.   A beautiful  side altar called the Repository was  erected and was vhited by many of  the faithful.    Between  11  and  12  o'clock p.m. the church was lit with  colored lights and the holy hour  was spent in meditation.in memory  of Christ's experiences in  the  Garden of Olives.    On Friday morning  the cross, which had been veiled for  a couple of weeks, was unveiled and  venerated.     In  the evening Rev.  father   Ferland   preached  on   the  "Passion of Christ."

The Boer coluins are thus  enabled to move about almost as  quickly as cavalry. It is reported  that 9000 Boers are to the south  of Dewet's Dorp, the force extending from that point to Odenhal.  The burghers who had returned to  their farms are undoubtedly rejoining the enemy. Lord Roberts  has appointed the duke of Marlborough assistant military secretary at  headquarters."  DEADLY BOER RIFLE FIRE  Two Illustrations.  Loxnox, April 13.���(Correspondence of the Associated Press.)���As  an example of the deadliness of rifle  fire from behind entreuchmeuts at  short ranges, a Standard correspondent writing from Osfontein, March  7th, of the siege of general Cronje,  says:  "Colonel Ilannay made an extraordinary charge with mounted infantry, riding his men at a gallop  right up to the Boer trenches, but  all were disabled or killed before  they got within 50 yards. Colonel'  Hannay himself was killed."  Duiing the Paardeberg battle,  the same correspondent relates, a  party of Kitchener's Horse rode up-  to Osfontein farm house. A man  in khaki told the cavalrymen that  British troops with ,guns occupied  the kopjes near by.  "The men off-saddled," the correspondent says,' "and  were resting  Avhen the alarm suddenly arose that  the Boers were,on them. The house  was surrounded'by the enemy, who  fired into  the  horses,  stampeding  them.      Lieutenant   Watermeyeiy  who had   run for his   horse,  was  in the act of mounting when a Boor  came   around   the   corner   of   the  house and fired point blank at him.  The     bullet     struck     his     arm  and grazed along his left, shoulder.    He let fall  the  rein?, raised  his "rifle-and1 shot" the-Bder,.deRd.  'His horse-having bolted, he crossed  the farm yard and gained  the garden ar?d thence leaping  the  wall,  escaped across  the   plain.    Forty-  three officers and men  were killed,  wounded or taken prisoners by the  evening."  '   Heavy ^ Damages.

Committed Suicide.  * Nkw York, April 13,���Longing  for her old home, sorrowing at the  absence of a girl friend and distressed by the prophecy of a fortune teller that sho soon -would_die,  IIattie~Schimer,~a 'pretty young  German girl, killed herself in the  homo of her employer in Jersey  City early thin morning. She  was employed as a ' servant in  .the home of Henry Billert.iigrocer.  The tiagedy was enacted in the  kitchen. She stood on a chair,  fastened one end of a rope to a  hook in the ceiling, adjusted tho  noose around her" neck and kicked  lkor chair from under her. Dangling in (His fashion, Mr, Jlillort  found her. He also found a pathetic letter addressed,to ,him, which  .said : "Lifu Is too bitter i'or a lonesome, forgotten soui like me without the protection of father or  mother and in a faraway country."

New York, April 13.���This was  the 13th day of the strike of the  800 Italians employed on the new  Cornell dam and quart ies, and they  signalised it by refusing to allow  anyone to work. Contractors Coleman, Brush and Coleman telegraphed- to the West Chester  county sheriff'!?' office at AVhite  Plains for a hundred deputy sheriffs,  to be sent here to protect the property and men. The deputy'sheriff  attempted to parley with them, but  they would not hear him. The  strikers were all armed, not only  with clubs but with revolvers.  .They assumed, a dictatorial _air,  "saying Brush could not bo allowed  to do this, .so the sheriff, seeing that  his little squad would not be able  to cope with several hundred enraged strikers, whose numbers were  constantly increasing, ordered his  deputies back. Sheriff Moilery  arrived on tho scene about 7 o'clock.  fie came away determined to have  a big force on tho ground tomorrow  and if that force is not adequate he  will appeal to the government to  call out the militia. It looks as if  there would be a clash between the  strikers and the representatives of  the law tomorrow, as the former  are hot headed and very bitter and  say they will never give in to the  contractors,  The Week's Eusiness Good.  Yesterday being Good Friday, the  wholesalo-merchants of Nelson did  no business, and The' Tkihcxjg is  without its usual list of shipments  for the day.

The members of the Young  ..Canada Club inaugurated the lacrosse season yesterday morning on  the recreation grounds. The players were divided into the north  and south side according to their  seats in tho dining room at the  clubhouse, and it was announced in  starting that the game was to be  for blood or some "other liquid. The  result of. the match will be announced next week. At present  there are at least three versions of  the score, both parties claiming tho  victory and the spectators main-  ing the result to be a tie.  The players were as follows :  North South  ArtPoole    goal J. Ko-s  Dave Hutherford point   W.ltokH  I). MeN'ichol  co\er Kied Lynch  K. G Smith. .

Bcnslcj Kirst Hume. .Tom Henderson  Referee���Jack Vanstone. ���, .Umpires���J. J. Chambers, Harry How-  den and J. Doyle.  A number of tho players had not  touched^a lacrosse stick for  years, .  -but all their cunning came back  to  them after a few minutes practice.  Jack'Itoss, who played goal for the*  north only made one  mistake and"  that was excusable.   Just as a hot  shot came on goal someone shouted  "30," which means to a telegraph  operator   what   the    five    o'clock  whistle   does to a  corporation  laborer.    Of course Jack dropped his  stick and made a start for home  which lost his side  a goal.    "Doc"  Beasley played a great game.    He  went after .the Jball- with the  same  enthusiasm  he  manifests   when  a  prospective purchaser of along trip  ticket isin sight, and such a  spirit,  coidd ~ not    be    held    in     check.  Art   Poole   and    Harry     Bradfey  had  "   a ���" ��� distinct .    advantage  oyer the rest of the crowd.    Handling pills  is  their daily avoentior,  and it required no effort ;it all  to  manipulate' a.-.bolus, tho si^u  of %.a  lacrosse ball.    Bill Ko-s in ordinary  life is a  jeweler,   and   it   was   only  natural tli.it he attempted to make  "i ingo"   around   the    whole   field*  Tom   Henderson   played    a   great  game.    Some  one   intimated   that   '  before the game was over he manifested a disposition ,to lie down like  a light engine trying .to take fifteen  loads over  the  Slocan  divide,  but ,  Tom deniod the imputation,and de-  'elared that if he had the bunch on,  the C. P, It, he .would  tie them up  at Slocan  Junction  or some other  point   in, tho   woods   over   night.  Teddy   Smith   covered   a   lot    of  ground, but his training  iu collecting monthly accounts for telegrams   .  stood him in  splendid stead.   Jack  Hogg also demonstrated his ability  to rustle.    If the ball had been a  .five car consignment to a competing point he could not havo worked  harder to corral  it.    S)ave Rutherford's work "stamped"  and  "registered'���him-as   a   clever    player.-  Wadda cut his mark on  the game,  wliich is not surprising iu  view of  the fact  that lie  is  an  engraver..  The hand of Tom  McCammon was  manifest in tho arrangement of his  team.   They were so disposed as to  catch the eye and attract attention  at all stages.    Fred  Lynch   wore a  green wrapper, but  the filler  was  selected stock, as was evidenced at  Various   critical   point��.       in   the  opening    rounds    of    the    match  (ieorge Phillips got over the ground  as though ho carried a keg of cut  nails  in  each  pocket, but after a  time he got iuto the game and did  yeoman   service.     Jack   Vanstone  was a success as referee, principally  because ho observed the old saw  "silence is golden."   J. J. Chambers   ,  was relieved of his duties as umpire  for alleged malpractice in awarding  goals, but the fact was that he was  right and the bunch was wrong.  After tho match the players  dined at the club and spent a jolly  hour together.  Boiling Stock Scarce.

Every man iii Kaslo is  a politician, and a majority of them  have been for nearly a year  advertising that Kaslo is ou the decline;  that her trade is  falling  oil"; that  miniug men no longer make  their  ��� headquarters  there;   that her industrial enterprises are at a standstill ;   and    that    the   world   has  turned   its   back   on   their   town.  People do not take kindly to calamity howlersr _IIad~ tiie people" of  Kaslo quietly suppressed their political board of trade, and  offered  tlieir one   newspaper a new   subscriber for every item of live mining news it published, Kasio  today  would be getting her share of the  new   people   that   are   coming to  Kootenay,   her    customs    returns  would  not show   a   decrease,   her  sawmills would bo cutting lumber  for new buildings,  her  merchants  would    Ise    driving     close      bargains      with       mine       managers,  and   her     politicians     would    be  wearing .smiles instead   of  scowls.  There is nothing like keeping a stiff  upper lip.    The men who placed  Kaslo on the map in 1801, and kept  her there in 1S92 and 1803 and 180-1  were not weak-kneed  in times  of  adversity.    They did uot sit down  and tell the world that the country  and their town were going to  ruin  because lival towns were attempting to get a share of the Slocan  trade; they   hustled   to   keep the  trade aud spent their money  free-  -Iy jn advertising Kaslo as the chief  town in Biitish  Columbia.    While  half the newspapers in the province  have, for political purposes only,  been crying that the  mining districts of Kootenay and  Yale were  becoming bankrupt all  because of  the passage of a law that said  men  wot king   underground    in    mines j  should not work more than eight  hours iu twenty-four, a few papers  have   stood   up   for   the   country  and maintained that ifc  was 'not  only having the, average of prosperity,   but   clearly   showed   that  more capital than ever before was  being spent in the development of  mines; that for every mine that refused   to   ship   ore,   another   was  being   developed into  a   shipping  property; that  while some of tho  towns   were   not  growing, others  were   having   a   healthy   growth,  Now which of these  two classes of  newspapers  have worked foi' the  bestf"interests" of Kootenay?   Calamity howlers, like the Kootenaian  of Kaslo, the Miner of Nelson, the  Mining Review of Sandon, and the  Miner and tho Ilecord of Rossland ?  Or those who said that prosperity  and progress were not meaningless  phrasei?   Today there is no more  prosperous town in  British Columbia than Nelson, and that prosperity is not likely to be interrupted,  for its business men ignore politics  and do uot know how to spell "calamity"   or   "ruin,"   and" her   one  newspaper that has been  shouting  "iuin" has ho limited a circulation  that ifc can do no harm.  of Vancouver, for minister of finance; A.-E.

The following  stories  appear  in  Mr. Hobson's book about the Transvaal war, published yesterday by  Nisbet & Co.:  "A few years ago he was induced  to take part in  the opening  ceremony at a Jewish  synagogue.    On  entering  and  taking  his  place he  removed hio hat, and paid  no need  whatever to the  suggestion  of his  secretary, who explained the Jewish  custom of covering the head. When  the time came for  the  president's  address, he ejaculated a few brief  sentences and amazed his congregation  by  concluding  thus :     'I declare thissynagogueopenin the name  of our Lord Jesus Christ.' On another  occasion, shortly before he had presented  on   behalf of   the  state a  piece of land (an erf) for  the building of a Dutch Reformed church, he  was  approached  by an  influential  Jew,  who tendered  a  similar   request on behalf of a Jewish congregation.    The president promised to  consider   the   request,    and    soon  afterward announced that he had  granted   it.     Shortly   after,  however, he was waited on by his Jewish friend, who complained that the  piece of land they had received was  only half the size of that given for  the Dutch Reformed church. 'Well,'  retorted Kruger,  'what fault have  you   to   find?     They believe  the  whole Bible, so they get an erf; you  only believe half the Bible, and you  get half an erf.'

The shareholders of the Klondyke  & (Johrtnbiau Gold Fields, LiiniLed,  met on Marc-li 21st, at tiie Ilolborn  Jtcstaurant,   London,   to   select   a  liquidator to act under Iho-winding-  up order recently made against the  company.    Mr. G. S. Barnes, official  receiver, reported that his investigation was as yet incomplete, bnt  it showed that there seldom was a  W     case in which a thorough investigation was more necessary, and the  shareholders  might  rely  that the  whole of the circumstances attaching to the dotation and transactions  of the company would be sifted to  the bottom.    The accounts showed  unsecured  debts  ��5737, debenture  bonds  ��4183,  and   that out   of a  public subscription of upwards of  ��34,000 to the share capital, there  now  only  remained  assets valued  by   tho   directors   at ��2808.    The  company was rcgistcied in August,  1897, as a general exploration company, for the working of mines in  the Klondike goldfields.    The nominal capital of ��100,000"was divided  in 95,000 ordinary and 5000 deferred  shares.    The whole of the deferred  shares  were  issued  to   Mr.   C.   R  Flack, a clerk, and nominee of Mr.  John Mortis Cation, the promoter  of the company, in consideration of  tho payment of the j^'omotion expenses, and although no provision  was made in the agreement filed at  ^Somerset House, the directors, in  addition to allotting these deferred  shares, paid ��3007 in lespect of certain of the promotion charges.    Mr.  Catton had issued to him  3054 de-  feried  shares,  and  the  remainder  were largely distributed among the  directors.    lie was informed by Mr.  Catton-that the English directors  "paid for their shaves  at par,  and  that the Canadian directors teeeiv-  ed theirs as a present.    Mr. Catton  .-joined the boaid four days after the  registration of the company, so that  ���he concealed his identity with the  promoter by entering into the con-  . tract through  his nominee  Flack,  and kept his name off the prospectus  by becoming a  director after  the  formation.     Jn    response   to   the  prospectus 27.100 ordinal y and 107  deferred  shared  were applied for,  the arrangement being  that each  subscriber  of 100 oidinary shares  should be allowed to subscribe for  one deferred share at par.    Practically the only business done by the  company in England was tiie notation of three other companies���the  New Golden Twins, Ontario, Limited, the Dawson City, Klondike <S:  Dominion'    Trading     Corporation  Limited,  and the Rainy River &,  Ontario Rxplonltion Company, Limited.    Communications   passed  between the directors aud-thcir brokers for  the  purpose of making a  market for the shares, aud put and  call    options  were    given   to   the  brokers,    iu  November, when 10s.  per share had been called  up,   a  dividend of 20-per cent on the subscribed capital  was declared, and  the money -with  wliich  that dividend was paid was obtained partly  by calling np  the other  10s.  per-  share, and  partly by the sale of  5500 New Golden Twins, Ontario,  Limited, shares to the company's  brokers for ��2150.   The company  still held 11,515 shares of the New  Golden   Twins Company,  but   no  value was placed on them in the  statement of affairs.    The only conclusion to which he could come was  that the sale was an ai rangement  fraudulently made by the directors  with the sole object of declaring  the dividend.     It was   extremely  improbable that the  shareholders  would  we any  further   return of  their money, because although vciy  large sums might lie claimed from  the directors for misfeasance, the  money would have to go  first iu  payment    of the  debentures,  and  then to settle  with tho  creditors.  The question would bo whether any  shareholder under   those   circumstances  would   provide  funds   for  pursuing the directors, and making  them pay up their liabilities.    It  was his experience "that when directors   had    acted improperly   and  fraudulently they very often escaped   punishment   hy   draining   the  company entirely dry of funds, so  that proceedings could not be taken  unless the victims were prepared to  find tiie costs of the proceedings.  They could test assured, howevetv  Is now prepared to issue Drafts and  Letters of Credit on Skaguay, U. S.,  Atlin, B. 0., and Dawson City, N. W. T.  that he would thoroughly investigate the case, and if he found that  a criminal offence had been committed the papers would be laid before  the public prosecutor.  A resolution was unanimously  passed for the oilicial receiver to  act as liquidator and wind up the  company in the usual manner.  At a meeting of creditors held at  the Carey street offices of the board  of tiade a similar resolution was  passed.  WHY   MANY   MINES   FAIL.  Imperial Bank of Canada  HEAD  OFFICE, TORONTO.

In a word, if you want to build a  frame house you employ a carpenter ; if it is a brick 'house you get  a mason ; if you have a $10 lawsuit  you get an attorney; if yon are  sick you send for a -doctor. But  many investors think that anything  that wears pants is good enough to  rim a mine or .hold office.  Colorado has scored a great many  successes in mining in tho last 10  years  but truth  compels  tho admission  that in  the last 20 years  tlio faihues involving the loss of  millions of dollars far outnumbered  the successes    In connection with  these facts there is one point that  would be of great advantage if carefully considered by eastern investors.    Look at the big pay mines in  Colorado today, who opened them,  who owns them or controls them ?  Four great mines of Colorado, the  Little  Johnny, the Campbird, the  Portland    and   the    Independence  were all opened and placed on the  bonanza list by poor Colorado miners who had no money except what  they  got  out  of the  ground,  but  they did have experience and knew  what to do and Iioav to do it.    The  average eastern investor in mining  thinks that a man who has made a  failure in every other calling in life  ought  to be a mine manager.    So  you can travel through the mountains  and see monuments of folly  and if you travel on foot you will  have plenty of time to count up the  cost of the ruins you see and examine into the merit of the properties.    You will generally find that  the  property is all right and that  there has been from three to ten or  perhaps  100  times enough money  fooled away on it to have made a  good paying proposition.   The failure has often stopped tho entire  development of what would otherwise havc been a ilourishing'minmg  camp.    You will generally find that  the manager vsas a nice old man  who had failed at  everything  he  had ever touched, that he was-a  friend of the owners aud that he  had a pull.    Of course he did not  know a steam engine from a hydraulic ram.    lie may-havc built a  100-horse power mill which he tried  to run with a 20 horse power engine  and drive drifts at an expense of  JjUOO a foot that he could have contracted for $8 a foot.    Years ago a  i ifk New Yorker put $800,000 into  a mine enterprise to make a position  for a dissipated son whom he sent  out west to reform.' The first thing  the young man did was to buy a  barrel of old Kentucky whisky, the  next thing was to build a reduction  NELSON OPERA HOUSE  WAR   STORIES.  A wounded Connaught Ranger related the following to a nurse while  lying in Pietermaritzburg- hospital.  He was wounded in the Colenso  battle, and being parched with  thirst went to the river. To use  his own words: "I bent over the  river side and was just lowering  my bottle into the river- when I  started back aghast. What did I  see? From the bottom of the river,  looking up, his eyed fixed upon  me, gleamed up the dead face  of my old comrade. We had been  boys together, we had joined the  regiment together, in the early part  of that very day we had fought  side by side, and now, after the  long day's awful work, I found my  comrade once more.
