PRICE FIVE CENTS  ROBERTS' GIRDLE OF STEEL  not only to  to pen them  For this end,  A Critical Moment.  London, April 25.���Tho indecisive  actions and slow progress of  generals, Hart and Urn bant are relatively unimportant, when compared with the progress of general  French. It is now evident that  lord Roberts wishes  defeat the Boers, but  in, as at Paardeberg.  40,000 British troops are concentrating in tlio* southeastern part of  the Orange Free State and are op-  orating according to carefully devised plans, in which delay may be  as 'much due to strategy as to  necessity.  Tlic; success of this important  movement almost" entirely depends  on general French. If he can sweep  down from tho north with the rapidity of execution which ho displayed at Kimberley and Paardeberg, ho will eifecfc the same swift,  sudden transformation which followed the cavalry evolutions two  months ago. According to the last  accounts he was pushing on successfully. Every day the Boers remain  nt Wepener improves general  French's chance of success.  To put a girdle round the twenty-  five thousand Boers estimated to be  in the southeastern part of the  Orange Free State, lord Roberts has  evidently taken large chances. The  British critics differ regarding the  result, some declaring that it is al-  1 eady impossible for the Boers to  escape from the not. There is a  general impression that the advance  upon Pretoria will be taken up without any recou centra tion at Bloemfontein. With more than half the  British army stretched in echelon  across the Orange Free State such  a change in directions would indefinitely delay the accomplishment of  Roberts' objective move. News  received today has little bearing  upon the question of the hour.  V ����� Vancouver Conservative Ticket.  Vancouver, April 2o.���[Special  to The Tribune.]���-Charles Wilson,  mayor Garden, O. E. Tisdall and  alderman W. SS. Woods were nominated tonight at the Liberal- Conservative lino convention for Vancouver city. Wilson, as leader of  the party, was elected unanimously  and on the iirst'ballot mayor Garden received 00 votes, Tisdall 02,  captain Tatlow -10, J. H. Young 27,  alderman Wood 24, G. I. B. Perry  12 and major Bennett _>S. Tatlow  declined on the ground that should  ho accept, the wliole ticket- would  be from the west end. On second  ballot Wood iceeived 39, being  majority of two over  Perry.    Boy  liament was presented in the house  today. It sets forth that the population last fall was 22,000, nearly  all of whom were over 21 years of  ago. The revenue of the territory  is over $2,000,000 it says, and representation is essential to prevent  misunderstandings and improvident  legislation, as tho mining industry  is permanent and the population  will increase. Yukon would be entitled to from two to twelve members, but would be satisfied with  two. They ask that the right to  elect members be given during the  present session of parliament.  DISPATCH FROM  ROBERTS  m.���  Young  a  and  r  Orator  Non-Oonimittal. ,  Vancouver, April 25���[Special  fo The Tribune].���W. W, B. Mclnues, M. P., who arrived , today  from Ottawa, failed to elucidate the  feeling of doubt as to whatliis next  action will be. He said he thought  .premier Martin's�����>alicy, acceding  to his published platform, was a  good one. He thought he .should  <arry the country on it. He refused to state definitely whether he  would resign to support Martin or  not. He then branched off iuto the  .Japanese immigration-question, and  thought that the, province should  lake some action to preserve labor  interests if the Dominion would not  tlo anything iu the matter.  After the Eambler-Cariboo.  KAsr.0, April 2.1���[Special to The  Tribune].���It is reported that big  capitalists are figuring on buying a  controlling interest in the Rambler-  Cariboo, Within the past few days  ���several mining experts have examined the property. At the miue itself tliey have stopped sorting ore  until the deal goes through. The  principal owners of the mine are  L'ooley of Colfax, Washington, and  banking interests there; J. B. McArthur of Rossland and Maclean  .Brothers of Palouse.  Dewetsdorp Evacuated.  London, April 25.���4:37 p  The war office has received the following dispatch from Lord Roberts:  "BrjOEMFONTEiN, April 25.���Pole-  Carcw's division reached Roodekop  yesterday without casualties.     Its  advance   was  covered by  cavalry  and   hoisc artillery,  which   drove  back the enemy with  heavy loss,  their dead beiug left on the ground.  The mounted troops halted for the  night  at Grootfouteiu and at 7:30  this   morning   were    crossing   the  Modder  liver at  Valsbank, iu  accordance with  my instructions  to  French to endeavor to place himself astride  the   enemy's   lines  of  retreat.    French's arrival near the  Modder  river  evidently,  however,  alarmed     the     Boers,   for     they  evacuated   their    strong   position  near Dewetsdorp during the night  aud it Avas occupied by Chermside's  division this morning.  "The mounted infantry under  Ian Hamilton drove the enemy off  the kopjes in the neighborhood of  tho waterworks without casualties  to our -side.  "The Highland brigade marched  24 miles yesterday to support  general Hamilton, and halted for  the night at Klip kraal, four miles  from Sanaa's post.  "Biahant aud Hart are still a  few miles short of Wepener, and  the numbers of the enemy appear  to have been somewhat increased  during the last few days. But it is,  not likely that there will be much  trouble in the neighborhood of  Wepener, once Dewetsdorp is occupied by our troops.  "I inspected the 'City Imperial  Volunteers battalion on their arrival at Bloemfontein yesterday.  They are in fine form and look  vei y workmanlike. I also inspected  the first company of the Imperial  Yeomanry, which have arrived  here. The men turned out smart,  and their horses are in admirable  condition."  Slocan Business Men's Candidate.  Kaslo, April 25.���[Special to The  Tribune.]���Business men from Kaslo, Sandon and Slocan lake points  met in an informal convention at  Sandon today to talk over the  bringing out of a business men's  candidate for the legislature,  Keen will probably receive  support.

Pittsuukg, April 25.���One man,  name unknown, was blown to atoms,  two meu received fatal injuries and  eight men and a girl were badly injured by an explosion of dynamite  at Laiimer, Pennsylvania,last night.  The_ seriousl y_ in j tired are John  Nicholick, aged 50, injured fatally;  George Stonewick, aged 21, John  Johns, aged 27, John Stonewick,  aged IS. The disaster occurred in  a large frame house, which was  wrecked, nothing remaining but the  back wall and a portion' of a side  wall. It is thought the dynamite,  which had been stored in the house  by miners, was ignited by tho explosion of a lamp.  ���   Sioux Indians' Complaints.  Fort Yates, North Dakota, April  25.���Then1 is great uneasiness and  bitterness of feeling among Sioux  Indians here over the policy of the  Indian bureau. They claim that  suddenly aud without explanation  their rations have been cut in half  and that money from the" sale of  hides and the annual interest money  has not been paid. They hold this  to be directly iu violation of the  treaty. Letters are being received  by the Sioux here from the Pine  Ridge Sioux urging, that if peaceable means fail to secure their  treaty rights, their rights must be  gained by urgent demands of force.  Fight at Nueva Caceras.  Manila, April 25.���Officers who  have arrived here from Nueva  Caceras, province of South Camar-  iua, bring details of a fight on  April 10th, in which eighty Filipino's were killed. The American  outposts reported 300 natives  assembled three miles from town,  and general Bell sent three detachments of the 45th regiment with  two Maxims, who nearly surrounded  them, the majority of whom were  armed with bolas.  KAFFIRS  FOUGHT BRAVELY  Unreliable Lady Journalist.  London, April   25.���The arrival  of  Mafeking   dispatches   has   reduced   the interest   aud   anxiety  in  regard to the fate of   its defenders.   Lady Sarah Wilson's account of the slaughter of 33  natives who went out from Mafeking  .last. Friday to recover some cattle  which had been looted by the Boers  and who, while they were sleeping,.  were surrounded *by the burghers  and shot without quarter,  apparently   harshly misrepresented  the  action of the  Boers.     A  dispatch  received by the Associated Press  from Mafeking says the natives  in  question were unauthorized raiders,,  and that, instead  of being "ruthlessly   slaughtered by   the   Boers  while     asleep,    they    beat    back  fiie    burghers,    who     were     obliged     to      get      reinforcements  of Maxims and Nordenfeldts.   The  dispatch   adds:    "There    was    no  question of surrender.   The leader  of the natives rallied his men to  the last, and the fight progressed  from the rising to the setting of the  sun.    Until their ammunition was  finished   the   natives   fought,  and  then the Boers  killed all but one,  who. hiding in the reeds, escaped."  BOERS ARE IN FULL RETREAT  Moving Northeastwards.  London, April 25.���The war office  has issued the following from lord  Roberts, dated Bloemfontein, April  25th: "The enemy retired from in  front of Wepener last night, and  this morning are moving northeastwards along the Ladybrand road.  Their number was between 4000  and 5000.  /  Three Successive Victories.  London, April 26.-���The Times'  has tho following from a special  correspondent, dated ��� Mafeking,  Basutoland,1 April 25th: "I rode  from Janimersburg, skirting Wepener, and I met general Brabant's  advance guard four miles south of  Wepener. They report three successful fights on Saturday, Sunday  and Tuesday, with ' twenty-two  casualties. The siege was raised,  and 5000 of the enemy are going  along the Ladybrand road within  our sight and unpursued. Colonel  Dalgety's casualties ai e 33 . killed  and 132 wounded," '  necessary to.give them a lesson and  to ascertain their strength. On  Monday night colonel Paget placed  several guns on the river bank,  under coyer of the darkness, within  a thousand yards of the Boer  trenches across the:-river. The  horses and carriages'.,;were withdrawn beyontlifango. ;At daybreak  the British opened a "heavy bombardment with shrapueland lyddite.  The Boers were taken completely by  surprise, but they replied with five  guns, including a forty pounder,  and a rifle fire was opened at the  same time. The diiel continued  many hours, tho Boers finally evacuating the position with great loss.  There were ho casualties on the  British side. During the eveuiug  the guns wero safely withdrawn.  The sniping today showed that the  Boer laager had been removed far  back to the eastward.  Britain in no Hurry.  London,     April     25.���Inquiries  made at the British foreign  office  confirm the despatch from Constantinople to the Associated Press saying that in view of  the steps taken  by the United States regarding the  claims arising out of the Armenian  massacre, the   embassies of Great  Britain, Germany, France, Austria  and  Italy  have; asked their  governments to instruct  them as to  their similar, claims.    It, is  learned  .that tho British   government has  hot yet answered the ambassador's  requestforinstructions, and contemplates no individual 'action:   While  theattitude of her majesty's government is one of regret that the British claims have? come to this stage,  it will co-operate in any plan decided upon by "the other powers.  It  is not believed 'at the  British foreign office, however, that joint action will take the form . of an ultimatum in anything except  the renewal  of   useless protestations to  the Turkish   government.    Should  the continental powers agree on insisting that they be treated on the  same basis as the United States,  they will only havo  a  lukewarm  follower in  Great Britain, as lord  Salisbury desires .no further .troubles of war at present. "" '"*  Last Day in Ireland.  Dublin, April 25.���The queen  spent her last day in Ireland very  quietly. Though she drove out  this afternoon, she did not visit any  institutions.

BOER STORY OF THE BATTLE  Ridiculously Small Loss.  Dewetsdorp, Sunday, April 21.���  When general Dewet's scouts announced on Thursday that general  Kelly-Kenny's and Ruudle'scolumns  wero advancing on Dewetsdorp he-  ordered "up saddle" and moved with  the Fricksburg command and generals Cronje, Olivier and Wessels to  intercept them. This was done on  Friday morning, while the British  occupied the grass hills at Taljard's  farm and Dewetsdorp, those immediately south of Dewetsdorp  fighting the British. Cronje delayed  occupying an important hill, while  the British took at noon the. same  position. At 9 o'clock yesterday  guns were heard briskly.  The British had made trenches  and had thrown up schauzes. At  11' o'clock the Free State cannon  and maxim guns opened fire, and  the former constantly dropped  shells into the British camp. Darkness stopped the fight until 11  o'clock, when the Bethlehem men  on the extreme light heard some  British in the immediate vicinity  and fired.

CAN FRENCH CATCH THEM?  A Difficult Country,  London, April 20.���5 a.m.���Tho  Boers have everywhere retired at  the first pressure of the British advance, and the hope that general  Bundle would be able to induce  them to remain at Dewetsdorp until they had been forced to fight or  surrender has been "disappointed.  No attempt was made to pursue  the commandoes retiriugfrom Wepener, and everything  now depends"  upon the progress of general French's '  cavalry brigade, but they are enter--  ing a'very'difficult, hilly and practically    unknown    country.     The  cavalry have already had a long-  march over heavy and sandy roads,  and  nothing   is  known  regarding .  the condition of the horses.   Iu any,  case it is now a  race  between  the  federals and the forces  of general  French and general Hamilton.  The slowness of the recent movements of the British  infantry aud  previous experience of the ability"  of the Boers to move rapidly with  guns and  baggage over their own  country lead to  a belief  that lord  Roberts' enveloping operations will  have to be repeated further north. __  At the most  he  will perhaps cap- ~  ture some Boer guns and baggage '  and   harrass   the   retreating   burghers.  Considerable results have been  attained in the relief of Wepener  and in the clearing of the south- .,  eastern portion of the Free State of  the Boers, but tho Boer army,  whatever its strength, has still to  be dealt wibh.  Besides the casualties among tho  men, the Boer bombardment of  colouel Dalgety's position wrought  great havoc among the cattle j and  horses. The garrison could have  held out for another fortnight, but ��  it is iu no condition to render much  assistance in pursuing the Boers. *  There is little news from  other  quarters.

THE BOERS' LAST EFFORT  Repelled by Dalgety.  "Masicki;, Basutoland, Apiil 2L-���  On the breaking up of the bivouac  this morning', general Brabant discovered that the Boers, who fell  back towards "Wepener yesterday, '  had advanced during the night several miles nearer to Straiuss' farm,  which is a favorable position "for  icsistancc.  Colonel Dalgety's garrison was  severely attacked with six guns  this morning, probably with a view  of preventing him from assisting  the relief column. It seemed yesterday that Dalgety had practically been relieved, but the offensive attitude assumed by the Boers  _this_morning shows-this-idea to  have been erroneous.  General Hart is now a few miles  behind general Brabant's division, l  which is waiting for the former to  come up.  Thirteen British wounded were  removed to Mafeking at midnight  and placed in the English church. -  Cape Ministry May Collapse.

Such, however, according to the Naval and  Military Record, is the fact, and Mr.  Goschen has recently discovered in  the archives of the admiralty,  the original letter in which the  request is made by Bonaparte,  then a student at Brienne. He  was, as everyone knows, then preparing for a military career, but  the school inspectors reported that  he would make au excellent naval  oflieer, and sir William Fraser relates that his application to the  British admiralty was due to the  influence of his fellow student,  Lawley, afterward lord Wenlock.  Our contemporary adds: "Bonaparte,   when   sending    the   letter,  expressed  his belief that  the  application would not be successful,  because, though not religious-himself, he came of a fanatically Roman  Catholic family, and  at that  time  Roman Catholics were not welcome  on British warships.     As   we all  know,   Bonaparte   proved   a   true  prophet.   Singularly enough, it was  only chance which, at a later date,  ]:>revented  him  from entering the  British  army.    Paoli, the Corsicau  'patriot,' strongly urged him  to do  so.    Paoli at the time had some influence in  British  military  circles  and would have procured Napoleon  a commission. The latter considered  the   offer  seriously   and  then declined it  on  the  ground  that the  French revolution offered brilliant  opportunities  for   a  young  officer  just   starting   his   career.     So  he  placed his sword at the disposal of  his adopted country."  HUDSON'S BAY  COMPANY.  '.   . 0^J- 0* . 0*..00.. 00 .00 . 0*_.0^ ��� <��_!*_ fS!'^* "d? '**f * f? '**!' )0f'��� 1__3!__!

Pit km i isn  Martin   would  center  all tho business of tho province at  "Vancouver, the town   in  which he  has his law office.    He would build  a railway with the people's money  that would divert all trade from  Kootenay to the Coast.    He would  have uo rivals either in commerce  or politics.     Vancouver must   be  the   commercial   center,    and.    all  political power must be centred in  Joseph Martin of Vancouver.   The  people of   Kootenay  havc aspirations, both politically and commercially, and they will see to it that  no candidate that supports Joseph  Martin will be elected to the legis-  . lativo assembly from  either one of  the sis  ridings of East and West  Kootenay.   Tim Rossland Record aud other  class organs are persistently circulating the report that the members  of the miners* unions in British  Columbia   have   received   iastruc- i  tions   from   Butte,  Montana,   that  they mu.st support Joseph Martin in  his efforts to retain  power in this  province,       .No   person" in  Butte,  Montana,   has   any    authority   to  issue political orders toBritis-h subjects resident in British Columbia.  The members of the miners' unions  in British. Columbia are just as free  to exercise all tlieir political rights  and privileges as are the members  of other  non-political societies  or  organizations.   AU such reports are  for the purpose of discrediting the  miners' unions, and it is safe to say  that  the   newspapers    circulating  them   know   that  they  are false.

London Financial Now-..  "Words of   customary  eulogy or  gratitude are  quite inadequate  to  express   the  emotions  aroused   in  this country  by the budget  statement of the Canadian finance minister.    It seems strange that a budget, statement���which  is  generally  commonplace and frequently sordid  Lr   ���should  inspire such feelings, but  Mr. Fielding's  speech  undoubtedly  does.    AVe arc not grateful  merely  for what  Canada  is doing  for the  mother country in the field, or in  the   less   glorious  sphere  of commerce. What     appeals     most  strongly   to   our   instincts  is   the  t-pleudid example which Canada, the  elder  daughter   of  the   empire, is  giving to her younger  sisters.    Let  Australasia note Avell that the financial   prosperity   and  the   political  vigor which show in every sentence  of Mr.  Fielding's speech could be  attained only by a federated  Canada.    Let the Australian colonies  dwell  on  the  fiscal  policy  of the  Dominion,  and   let   thorn  emulate  the course of Canadian  statesmen.  Australasia is not one  whit behind  Canada  in   the  generous   impulse  which has rallied tho over-sea Britons   round   the   imperial    flag   in  South    Africa,    but   the    various  colonies of the southern  seas have  not yet attained the same sense of  political and financial responsibility  vhich is so conspicuous  in federal  L'aHftfhi-     That   will  como in  due  course, and meantime the example  of what Canada has been able to  achieve foi JiGr own,financial credit  Fhould   give a   {strong  impetus to  Australian longings to make federation real aud unimpaired by local  itnd colonial jealousies.   The privil-  vgts so fully earned by Canada of-  Is now prepared to issue Drafts and  Letters of Credit on Skaguay, U. S.,  Atlin, B. C, and Dawson City, N. W. T.  0  having her national debt recognized  as a trustee security is one that the  Australian colonies greatly desire,  and they have now a pretty good  idea of what they must do ere it is  conceded.  WAR   STORIES.  T. King, of Brabant's Horse, writ-'  iug to his friends  at Preston, tells  of   his   adventures   as  a dispatch  rider.        Cn   one    expedition   five  Boers  galloped up.     King's  horse  was struck iu the flank.    "Just as I  was going  to dismount," he adds,  "they all  fired  again, and I got a  bullet through my  leg.    It  passed  right   through,   and    caught    the  horse  just  behind  the oar.      The  animal fell on top of my  leg, and S  was  helpless.    The  Boers were all  very  chary, and  I  could not  help  laughing when I saw them  coming  up  so  gingerly."    King   concludes  by saying that the  Boers took  his  money,  but   he  did  not mind, as  they could not find  his  dispatches.  Bombardier II.  Brooks,  4th Battery SI. F. A., writing to his mother  at  Commercial  Quay,  from Colesberg, says :    " The major sent me  with  a  message  to  the  telegraph  office, and as soon as  I  got  out of  cover  of the hill  they sent a *10-  pouuder shell at our gun.    I  heard  it burst about 20  yards in rear of  me, and a piece of the shell  weighing about  12 pounds,  came flying  past my  light arm  and burst  the  dust up all round me.     At iirst the  chaps thought I was hit, but  when  the dust cleared away they could  see me galloping away for my life.  On the same day we had to fetch  our guns down from Coles Kop, and  as we let the second one  down  the  rope broke and  the  gun fell from  top to bottom and was smashed  to  pieces.    AVe did not  have  time to  get all  our ammunition down, so  we had to bury it under the rocks."  Adding a postscript, Brooks says:  "I was in charge of the stable guard  the other night.    Iliad posted  my  2  o'clock   sentries Tabout" twenty  minutes- when  I  hoard one  of the  sentries calling1 to   me.

AVe went  round the lines together and found  him. I stopped him, and saw that  he was dressed like an infantryman, helmet and all. I asked him  what he wanted. He said he was  a militiaman and had lost his way.  But I did not like the look of him,  and as he could not answer, I shoved  him in the "clink. In the morning  when he was taken before the major he acted daft, and would not  answer auy questions, so they  packed him off to the hospital to  see what was the matter with him.  AVhen he got there the doctor  chased him, and said he was only  putting it on. So they made enquiries of the militia battalion, and  found he did not belong to them.  The finish of it was they found him  to be a Boer spy, and packed him  off to Cape Town.

The informant added that the government  despatched troops to David and  it was reported that these had  been defeated by the. filibusters.

Mr. Sullivan made a close examination of the Lardeiui-  Diincan railroad and found that the Krado constructed last yea** is in excellent condition, practically as good as before the winter. Asked as to  whether any work would be done on the road this  summer, Mr. Sullivan said he did not know, the  matter being in the hands of the Montreal management.  Miss Eva Booth and party were  in the city again yesterday. Tho commissioner's  visit was of a quiet nature, and the only meeting  at which she was present was held last night exclusively for the members of the Nelson corps.  Among tho visitors were major*and Mrs. Har-  greaves, major Smcaton, ensign Griffiths, captain Gooding and treasurer Howes of Rossland.

E. Sutherland was brought  before magistrate Crease 3*estcrday afternoon  charged with uttering a $1 bank note raised to  $10. The nolo in question was a United States  bill, and the raising was done rathei neatly by  pasting numerals from a genuine note over the  original ligure. Tho case occupied the court the  most of the afternoon, a large number of-witnesses being examined. P. K Wilson, who appeared for Sutherland, applied for a remand until  tod.ij to pioduce evidence to establish an alibi.
