"Lord Beaconsfield," continued  the speaker, " was one of the first  to appreciate the advantage of an  empire. Imperial federation is a  delightful dream and it may be:  come more, but we must uot attempt to force the pace.

"As to what the results of the  war will he to South Africa, none  can say, but the war bids fair to  have the greatest results for the  empire.

London, April 20���4:15 a. m.���A  deluge of rain histing ten days has  brought operations in the southeastern part of tho Free State  about to a standstill.

A singular message dated Bloemfontein, April 19th, and beginning  "Via press censor at Bloemfontein,"  reports an exchange of shots in the  direction of Dewetsdorp, where the  Boers are said to be in force after  their withdrawal from Wepener.  There is nothing to indicate that  the investment of Wepener has  been announced by tbe Boers.

Carter      maintained  that      mere      denunciation       of  the     men     was     not      sufficient  to   destroy their rights.   The injured parties ought to be permitted  to go into the courts to contest for  the claims.   Mr.  Rawlins of Utah  asked if it were notafactthat United  States army officer had dispersed at  the point of the bayonet a regularly organized miners meeting in the  Cape Nome   district.     Mr.  Carter  replied that he had been  informed  that the   soldiers   of  the   United  States had dispersed a meeting of  American  citizens  called  together  to make rules and regulations for  the  government of mining in  the  district, and subsequently he said  some of these had been taken toSf.  Michaels and lodged in jail.  " That this action on the part of  United States army will be subject  to a rigid investigation there can be  little doubt," said- Mr. Carter.  "And the investigation must be  searching and final. The names  will come out in time, and, if guilt  exists, the guilty men may well  tremble."

Y��� April  19. ���This was by far the most important day in and around Croton  Valley since the strike began seventeen days ago.

Only Sixty Millions.  New York, April 19.���The appraised valuation of the estate of  Cornelius Vanderbilt amounts to  about $00,000,000, says tlio Woild  toda3f. The estate was supposed to  be worth at least $125,000,000 at  tho time' of Cornelius Vanderbilt's  death last September, Chauncey  M.

Fell From a Sleeping Car.  Huntingdon, Pennsylvania, April  19.���R. II. 0. Hill of Baltimore, representing the II. G.

The Turko-Amencan Dispute.  Washington, April 19.���Among  the  callers  upon  acting secretary  Hill today was Ali Ferrouh Bey, the  Turkish   minister  to  Washington.  Though   this  was diplomatic day  rand the minister had been a rather  frequent visitor to the  department  on such days,  it was pretty well  understood that the occasion for  this particular call was the publication of the intention of the United  States government to bring to an  immediate   issue   the negotiations  with Turkey relative to tho payment of tho American missionary  and other claims., It is understood  that the purpose of the minister  was primarily ��� to gather  information on this subject,  of 'which' he  was ignorant owing to the fact that  the   negotiations   have   been  conducted    exclusively   in    Constantinople.  What Wilkinson Thinks.  London, April 20.���Spencer Wilkinson, dealing with.the probabilities of the military situation in the  Morning Post, says: "Probably the  silence after what has beeu published concerning the movements of  generals Brabant, Barton and Bundle, as well as sir Herbert Cherm-  side, indicates that operations are  in full progress, but- ihat precautious aro being taken to prevent  tho enemy learning of the British  movements."  Another Ashantee War Coming.  Accra, Gold Coast Colony, April  19.���Tlio governor, sir Frederick  Mitchell Hodgson, wires from Kumassie that the otFier tribes are rising again and he asks for assistance.  Tho loyal Bekus have been attacked by the Ashantees and 500  have been killed, it is feared that  this will compel them to join the  rebellion. Evidently the matter i.s  extremely serious and was hushed  up until it was too late.  An  Afro-American's  Bishop's   Views.  London, April 20.���Bishop Htirt-  zel, of the American Methodist  Episcopal church in South Africa,  who will sail'for the United States  on Saturday by the St. Louis, says  that ho considers Great Britain lias  been entirely right in the South  African trouble from the outset,  and he expresses tho hope that  Dutch South Africa will bo converted  into British South  Africa.

A couple of cases involving unusually nice points of mining law  will come up for trial at the sitting  of the supreme court to be held iri  Nelson on the 8th proximo under the  style of Braden vs. American Boy  Alining Company.  The American Boy miue is a well  known property situated near  Cody. It is operated from Spokane,  but among the large stockholders is  P. Burns. A large amount of money'  has been expended on the property  ���and it has been shipjnng ore for  some time.  - William Braden, the plaintiff in  the actions, is of Helena, Montana.  He owns the Ajax and Treasure  Vault properties, adjoining the  Ameiican Boy, and has clone some  work on the claims.  Air. Braden has entered suit in  the first place to set aside the crown  grant issued to the American Boy  company for the American Boy mineral claim, alleging that the crown  graut was obtained by fraud  on the part of defendants by sup-.,  pressing from the government"  officials the fact that the Ajax and  Treasure Vault were prior locations.  The defendants contend that the  Ajax and Treasure Vault- had expired before they applied for the  crown grant for the American Boy,  and further that plaintiff, not  having taken adverse proceedings  under section 37 of the Aliueral Act,  is now barred from attacking the  grant.  In the  second  case, Air.  Braden  ���  claims that he is  entitled,  as  the  lawful holder of the Treasure Vault _  mineral claim, to all  the veins  or  lodes of mineral   through their entire depth the top or apex of which  -  lie inside the suifaco lines of the  Treasure/Vault, although such veins  may depart from,a perpendicular  in their course downward so as to  extend   "outside   the    vertical sirlo  lines of the surface location.     This-  would involve a  rich  vein, in   tho  ?,  American Boy, nnd is strongly  opposed by defendants.    The American Boy company denies that  the  apex    of    the    vein    is   oil    tho  Treasure Vault aud contend that iu  any event as the Treasure Vault is  triangular - shaped    and    without  patallel  end  lines  Braden has  no  right under tho Mineral Act of 1S91  to follow any vein or  lode  outside ,  the surface boundaiies.

No Liberal will vote  for him, and the workingmen aro  not hankering to elevate to office a  mere mining company promoter,  who less than six months ago was  willing to transfer his field of  operations from British Columbia  to Oregon and California. These  are facts that the men who reside  in Rossland and the Boundary  towns are aware of, and they do  not care to support a man who is  so willing to cpiit a country that  has honored him and raised him  from poverty to ailluence merely  because of the passage of a law  that does not suit him.

Existing conditions    are    not    likely    to    be  changed."      Such    can     admission  should  have   weight   with  people  who are shouting  for the repeal of  the eight-hour  law.    It is safe  to  say that few business  men  can be  found in any town iu East or West  Kootenay that favor the reopening  of the question.    If mine managers  are satisfied to let things go as they  lay, why should officious politicians  and cheap-labor shouters be  given  any    consideration?

A few  of the men in question came to Nelson. They were without means,  and-applied to-fcluTchief of "police  Jor tho privilege of remaining over  night in the city lockup. That permission was given them by the  chief, and the next morning he informed the mayor of their condition. Four of the party were given  work on the streets for four,or live  days. If the Miner was inclined to  be fair, il could have obtained the  above facts from either the chief of  police or the mayor.  No ono will  accuse David  Mark  Carley, editor of the   Economist, of  friendliness,  political   or persona!,'  for Joseph "Mar tin, premier of British Columbia, who is announced to  address   the  electors of  Nelson  at  the opera  house  on Monday night  next.    Yet, in, discussing the street  rumor that no ono appeared willing  to act as chairman  of Mi'. Martin's  meeting, Mr. Carley said: "I would  " have no hesitation  iu  acting as  " chairman   of   the   meeting,   nor  " should   any   other good   citizen,  " Acting as  chairman of a public  " meeting    does    not    necessarily  " imply that  the chair is  in sym-  " pa thy with either tho speakers or  " the objects of the meeting.   Mr.  " Martin is premier of the province,  " and he should be given a respect-  " i'nl and fair hearing by the people  " of Nelson.    This is  not  only fair  " uniform courtesy with which all  " public men have been treated in  '��� Nelson. No town in the province  " has a better reputation than Nel-  " son in this respect." The Tribune is thoroughly in -accord witli  the views of Mr. Carley.  A NUMiiEE of conferences havo  been lield between the head push  of the Conservative and Liberal associations with the view of uniting  ou a candidate for the legislative  assembly. The candidate is to  stand upon 0110 plank, and that is  opposition to "Joe" Martin. It  should not be difficult to find a  candidate on so narrow a platform,  for, _while-_!lJoe"_has__ admirers, in  Nelson, he has no supporter who  would care to sacrifice himself as a  candidate in his interest. But tho  action of the two associations goes  to show how little they are at a  time when when broadminded bigness is required. The candidate of  the two associations -will probably  be G. Frank Beer, of Beer Brothers,  financial agents. lie is a Liberal,  is popular, has money to burn, and  is a practical politician.  The Miner takes occasion to lecture alderman Wilson because of  his having voted against the Arthur  resolution to make the mayor the  subordinate of the city engineer.  No alderman that agrees with the  mayor on any question can expect  other than abuse from the organ of  the peddlers.  1st an outburst of frenzy the  Miner called for a special meeting  of the city council to reinstate a  subordinate city official to a posi-,  tion from which he had not been  suspended. After a while the people  will believe that the organ of tho  peddlers is not only unreliable, but  a chronic mischief maker and disturber of the peace.

The probabilities are that the  Rritish Columbia Amateur Lacrosse  Association ���will bo ono team short  in its circuit this season. At the  annual meeting of the association  which was hold in iVow Westminster, the secretary reported that  Nanaimo had been obliged to drop  out of tlio1 senior circuit. The Victoria organization, which was rather  .shaky last year, has been strength-  ed, and the prospects aro that the  three cities���Victoria, Vancouver,  aud New Westminster will battle  for the championship.  Only    one    playiug    rule    was  changed, or rather added.    It is distinctly   stated   that uo  ball   shot  through goal posts from within the  crease  will  be  allowed  as  scored.  This is to prevent the growing practice of the home player  rushing in  and   nailing tho   goal-keeper.      It  would seem though that they might  have added  some  directions as  to  how tho ball should be taken out if  it does  go through unlawfully  in  this   way  and  where  tlio  face-off  shall be.    The rule though was unanimously   adopted.      A   question  came   up   which  is  causing  much  trouble among the Vancouver players today, and from  the ���way thoy  "expressed themselves it is likely to  cause more later on, unless settled.  -There aro two players of lat>t year's  New Westminster team,  the Pcele  brothers, who are now resident  in  Vancouver, and the Vancouver tle-  J legates on their own motion wished  ��� to   'allow   them   to   play for   the  .Royal City "team.    Any  .such permission   as  this "though ifc  is  distinctly contrary to the constitution,  and it is hard  to sec how it can be  done without amending section 1 of  rule iv., which slates " that players  -shall  bo regular members  in   good  standing of tiie club they represent  i'or at least twenty-one days before  being eligible to play in a match for  their  club  and Tinusfc be bona  iide  residents of tho city."  ' Among the officers  elected were:  W. H. Quaim, honorary president;  A. W. Ross, president; D. A. Smith,  iirst vice-president; W.  Si.  Ditch-  burn,   secretary - treasurer.      The  refereca from Vancouver are Messrs.  J). A. Smith and J. II, Senkler.  Greenwood's Ball Team.  Greenwood is organizing a ball  team which it is predicted will be  able to worst any organization in  the interior. An attempt will be  made to organise a league composed  of Nelson, JRossland, Grand Forks  Imd"GreeITwdod^  A  NOVEL   EXHIBITION.  An Ameiiean who proposes to  have a novel exhibition at the Paris  exposition this year is "Tom"  Crahan, one time gambler and  saloon keeper of Helena, Montana.  '���Tom"  ran  his>  course  in   Helena,  wont for gold in the Klondike  country, aud finally concluded that  there could not be a better moneymaker than a moving-picture exhibition of a Klondikcr's experiences from start to finish, to be  presented at the Paris exposition.  Ho had $10,000 when everything  was cleaned up, and he proposed to  risk this in the venture, says the  New Vork Herald.  He had little education, no experience in tho work, and no acquaintance in the east. The first  man he thought of was Edison, and  he went straight from the Klon-"  dike to Menlo Park. There he was  admitted, and fearful that Mr. Edison would pass out without recognizing him, he asked who owned  a coat lying on a chair near him.  He was told it was Mr. Edison's.  After a long time a man came from  an inner room and picked up the  coat.  "xlre you Mr. Edison?" inquired  Crahan, not knowing of Mr. Edison's  deafness.  No answer from the man putting  on the coat.  "Are you Mr. Edison?" Crahan inquired again.  The man was into the coat without answering, and Crahan became  angry and desperate. Catching  him by the arm he almost shouted  at him:  "If you are Mr. Edison. I've come  seven thousand miles to see you,  and I want to see you."  This vigorous appeal brought a  response, and Crahan hauled a lot  of nuggets out of his pockets and  began to ask questions. Mr. Edison at once became interested. Crahan unfolded his scheme. Mr. Edison at once "turned it down,"  because, as he said, there were  already too many moving-picture  shows and the Edison people had  quit making kinctoscopes. But  Crahan was not to be turned from  his purpose, and he forthwith  told Mr. Edison that he wanted two  machines, and he would pay the  money for them himself. Mr. Edison  was willing io make them on such  terms, and he not only agreed to "do  so, but he went a little further aud  took stock in the enterprise. This  was an endorsement good enough  for anybody, and Crahan went to  New ,Y"ork and Chicago, and before  many weeks he had pledges for subscriptions enough to warrant him  iu pushing his plan for all it was  worth, and getting ready for actual  business.   '  The American 'preliminaries -being completed, he went tO' Paris,  where he met director-general Peck  of the American exhibit, to whom  he stated his ease, and he was sent  to see the French authorities. They  asked $00,000 for the privilege he  sought; But Crahan was not giving  up e\ erything, and he got them  down to $20,000, at which figure he  closed with them, putting up a part  of the money in cash ou the spot.  Tho Parib business concluded, he returned to New York, employed a  photographer, aud beginning in that  city, he went to lhe_Pacific,_taking_  pictures all along the route of im  Imperial Bank of Canada  IIKA11   OFFICE, 'lORONTO.

He is  flying back and forth between the  two oceans, with occasional trips to  Paris, and when the exposition  opens in the French capital '"Tom"  Crahan will be there.  the number of deaths and cases  have dwindled to nothing. Now  that the disease has vanished, the  determination is to keep the disease  out of England by keeping foreign  dogs out, except for breeding purposes, when they may be brought  in subject to three months' quarantine, or as pets, provided they are  brought for peimanent residence,  in which case they will be admitted  subject to three months' quarantine. Owners of pet dogs must depose that the dog has been healthy  for three months.  THE   DAWSON   TELEGRAPH.  J.  B.  Charleson,  superintendent  for   Dominion   government  public  works  in   the   Yukon,   arrived in  Vancouver on Sunday, having come  down   from    the   North   by   the  steamer, Amur, which got into Victoria on Saturday night.    He was  accompanied by his private secretary, Mr. Gobell, and Mr. Hardy, the  accountant  for   the  works  in  his  charge.    Mr.   Charleson has   come  down for the purpose of inspecting  the work done at the Quesnelle end  of the new telegraph line that is to  connect with the Dawson line built  last year, and which is to form a  complete line to the Klondike.    Mr.  Charleson has about  50 men work-  ine at the Atlin end of the line,  making 120 in all who are engaged  now  on the  telegraph line  work.  Another party of men has lately  been at work on the construction of  the  new postoffice   at Atlin,   and  which  is said by Mr. Charleson to  be a creditable piece of work.    The  new line will be over 800 miles in  length.   It has been built noAV from  Atlin to the head of Pike river, a  distance of 50miles, anda fine little  telegraph  office  has  been   erected  there for the agent of the first relay  station.   The trail is cut through  twelve feet in width to the head of  the Silver Salmon river, and there  are still 80 miles of wire to lay before Telegraph   creek.    When the  work will be finished   depends   a  great deal on the progress made in  this  district,  for  it is  said to  be  swampy, and will probably be very  difficult to wotk through.    If thc<  weather is good and snow does not  interfere too much, Mr. Charleson  hopes to be through to Telegraph  by May 15 th or June 1st.    Hazel ton  is ^considered to be^about the halfway point of the line, the Quesnelle  party,  under Mr. James  Clodden,  working up to Hazelton.    They had  25 miles of wire strung on Saturday  night    last,    and    were    pushing  through the work ,very well.   The  principal difficulty So far has beeu  in  getting  provisions  in  over the  snow.    The deep siiow there does  not pack, like ifc does in the east,  Mr. Chatleson says, and the getting  ia of 300 tons of suj>plies has been  a very heavy part of "the work so  far.    This has been   accomplished  with double teams  of horses and  Avithout any particular accidents.  Boers May Save Her Trouble.  A firm in Liverpool, being delighted at the idea that one of its  employees was called upon to join  the reserves, at once volunteered to  pay half his wages to his wife in  his absence, says the Post. At the  end of the month the woman appeared, and the money was at once  given her.  A FULL LINE OF  Front Doors  Inside Doors  Screen Doors  Windows  Inside Finish  local and coast.

How time wings its way onwards  to eternity. Last Thursday it was  41 years since the world and mother  first looked at us and said,   "What  a line child I" And yet it does not  seem over 40, so rapidly has one  event after another tangled us up  in its meshes. In our' early days  mother used to took into our soft  blue optics and say that we were  the best boy in the world. After  all these years she has not  changed her opinion. Notwithstanding that for years we have been  addicted to the newspaper habit  we are still the same sweet boy to  mother that we were in the days  when we ' robbed orchards and  thrashed all the other boys in the  neighborhood. She has never  changed. She loved us when we  first met and she loves us yet. Her  love, and we presume all mothers  are alike, is the kind that lasts until the end of this life and is carried  over to the next page. A mother's  love rises supreme to all the passions that torment the soul, and we  regret that so many sons in the  west so soon forget their best  friend.   No Dogs Admitted.  London, April 19.���American  tourists, who usually take their  dogs with them, can't bring them  into England this year.
