 DAILY  EDITION   BY   MAIL  FIVE  DOLLARS A YEAR  WEEKLY EDITION BY MAIL  TWO DOLLARS A YEAR  EIGHTH YEAR  NELSOK:, MONDAY MORKIKG, APRIL 23 1900.  PRICE FIVE  CENTS  VERY RICH KOOTENAY MINE  Trip to the Molly Gibson.  There arc mining companies  which organize with a great flourish  of trumpets anil much advertisement, and there are others who  go to Avork quietly aud unobtrusively. The choice of methods is  one of taste and circumstances, but  tho Molly Gibson Company have  ��� adopted the latter. During the  recent labor troubles many mines  closed down. The Molly Gibson did  not, but went on paying $3.50 for  an eight hour shift, with the result  that now the Molly Gibson crew  are probably the finest set of  miners in the country.  A Tribune representative visited  the mine yesterday, and was  most  courteously shown  over the workings   by    the    foreman,    Thomas  O'Brien.   The richness of the Molly  Gibson ore is proverbialrand with  that  fact borne in  mind,  the  immense value of the ore disclosed in  the workings of the mine  is patent  so'the veriest tyro in' such matters.  The Molly Gibson veins  are true  fissures   cutting   across  a   granite  formation.   The gangue is a quartz  which  runs into a  lime at either  wall,  and  it is in the  mixture of  these two that the ruby silver, the  richest ore in   the mine, is found.  It is noteworthy that there is ore  in   all  the   workings  without  exception, and not the slightest- semblance of a horse or a fault has yet  been  encountered.    The ore  body  varies from six inches to five feet in  width and averages  100  ounces  in  silver to the ton right through, not  counting the gold and lead values.  The mine is developed  by four  tunnels.    The main working tunnel  is No. 4,  which  is  driven  from  a  point close to the  mine  buildings.  This tunnel is in  950  feet,  aud  is  connected with No. '.i by an upraise  of 250 feet.    This  upraise gives  a  very fair idea*of the value  of that  part of the mine,   ft is in ore all  the way, the vein .varying in width  from 10 inches to  live feet,  while,  i'or 150 feet of the distance, the vein  is no less than three feet iu width.  Tunnel -No, 3 is in 00 feet, and No.  2, 150 feet higher up, ib in 320 feet.  Tho upper tunnel  No.   I, ^which^ is  12S feet above No. 2, id in 100 feet.  Owing to tho difficulty of getting  up supplies at this  season  of  the  year, work in the' two  upper tunnels lias been suspended  recently.  They, have,   however,   an equally  good showing of. oro with tho two  lower ones,.   The  site for a fifth  Molly Gibson, La Plata Fraction,  Florence, Aspen, Little Duke and  Little Fraction mineral claims.  These properties are situated at the  head of Kokanee creek, immediately  southwest of the Kitchener glacier.  Last fall the company, of which  Bruce White is manager, built an  excellent wagon road with easy  grades from the landing on Kootenay lake at the mouth of Kokanee  creek, to a point 0300 feet from the  mine. This road is nearly 12 miles  long, and during the' past few  months the ore has beeu rawhided  down from the mine to the ore bins  at the terminus of the wagon road.  This summer, however, the company intends installing an aerial  tramway to that point, and the  work of construction will begin as  soon as the snow permits.  RUNDLE MAY BE FIGHTING  AMERICA'S TRIALS NOT OVER  tunnel, a crosscut, has been decided upon, and work will be com-  moneedfiipon it in the near future.  This* tunnel will be -100 feet in  length and will give- an additional  depth to the workings of 200 feet.  Tunnel No. 4 is driven in on what  is known as the Florence lead, and,  at a distance in of 250, a 50-foot  crosscut has been driven to tap a  parallel ledge known as the Aspen  vein. This vein has been drifted  on, so far, for 40 feet, and here the  "richest Ore-so" far Encountered has  beeu found. To give an idea of its  value, it may be stated that a cur-  load of this ore was shipped which  went $300 to the ton.  Oompatatively little stoping has  been done, though there is one  ntope 540 feet long in No. 4 tunnel.  The foreman stated that were  ho to increase the output of the  mine to its fullest extent, he could  employ a force of 300 men lo advantage. ' This will give an  idea of the resources of the mine.  Up till recently about 30 men have  been kept at work, though the  force nt work yesterday did not  exceed 20, and these will probably  be laid oil" for a week or two today  or tomorrow, as" the* existing state  , of the roads makes it impossible to  get in supplies.  Since starting hauling ore at the  end of January the Molly Gibson  has shipped 340 tons of high grade  'ore, and as much more is distributed ready sacked at various points  along the wagon road and is now  being hauled down to the lake.  Shipments have been considerably  interrupted by an immense slide of  snow, dirt, trees and boulders,  which came down on the wagon  road on March 10th. This slide  was 1000 feet wide and about 40  feet deep, ft has now, however,  largely disappeared. The ore, before being sacked, is roughly sorted,  but it is so uniform in character  that this does not have to bo so  inlnutely done as is the case in  many mines.  The Molly Gibson group, which  "la owned by the mining company  ol the .same name, consists of the  Bloody Fighting in Philippines.  Manila,   April   22.���Last   week  has been the bloodiest of the war.  since the first day's fighting around  Manila.   Authentic reports, mostly  official, show a total of 378 Filipinos  killed, 12 oflicers and 244 men  captured   aud many   more  wounded.'  The   number, of   them  is   hard to  guess.    Considering that the Filipinos entirely lack hospital facilities,  a  great  majority of the wounded  will die. . Probably the week's work  finished, 1000    insurgents.       The  Americans   total loss was 5 killed-  and  10'.' wounded.   Two sergeants  and one private were killed in ambushes   while   escorting provision  train.  The insurgents have been aggressive in almost every province of  Luzon. General Del Pilar's band,  numbering 300, which was out of  sight for three months the leader  being reported killed,, has reappeared in its old field about San  Miguel. Pilar i.s supposed to be  again in'command. He gave the  American garrison at San Miguel,  consisting of three'companics of the  35th infantry with a gatling, a three  hours' fight during a night attack.,  The loss of the insurgents iu this  engagement is not included in the  foregoing total as they removed  their dead and wounded, but presumably it waa considerable.  ���Twenty "Filipinos in the province  of < Batagan3 attacked lieutenant  Wondo, who with eight men was  scouting near San Jose. The lieutenant and five men were wounded  "and one private was killed. Sergeant Lodoius of the 35th infantry  was badly wounded in an ambush  near Baliuaug. Lieutenant Balch  of the 37th infantrywith 75 men,'  had a five hours' fight with 400 insurgents iu the Nueva Caeeres district. Twenty of the surgents were  killed. Colonel Smith of the 17th  infantry who captured general  Montejoand brought him to Manila,  is in the isolation hospital suffering  from smallpox, presumably caught  from     the    Filipinos. Colonel  Smith"s_ comm��Uid_cap_t_ured_180_  oflicers aud men with * Monfce-  jo, who was formerly one of  the most dapper officers iu the Filipino army, looks worn aud haggard. He .said he has led a terrible  life for montns, aud he has offered  to return to the north with Colonel  Smith to endeavor to persuade hi<5  former comrades of the uselessness  of opposition to the Americans.  One   hundred   escaped   Spanish  General War News.  London, April 23, 5 a. m,���It is  quite probable that by this time  geueral. sir Henry . Bundle has  fought a decisive battle with the  Boers. He entrenched himself on  Saturday to await the arrival of  general Campbell with the 16th,  brigade. That commander arrived  Saturday evening and news may  be . therefore expected at auy  moment.  It is still impossible to ascertain  the position of affairs at Bloemfontein or to learn where the long expected advance northward will  begin. The dispatches conflict regarding the state of the preparations. Present indications, however, point to still further delay.  Without attaching undue importance to the stories from Lorenzo  Marquez concerning the strength of  the Boer forces it would almost  seem that the former estimates of  30,000 were rather low.  During^ the last few days there  has been a renewal of Boer activity^,  in all parts of the theatre of war.  The tenacity of the enemy around  colonel Dalgety proves that considerable forces are still there. Lord  'Boberts has ordered lord Methuen  to retire from Boshof, probably for  the same reason. The presence of  a Boer force at Franfort looks like  an intention to endeavor to cut off  Methuen, who may now be heard  fr'om.as retiring upoii Kimberley.  The Boers are.said to half encircle  Bloemfontein to the eastward in a  crescent formation. There have  been several outpost affairs in that  vicinity. The eleventh division,  under general Pole-Carew, and the  fourth cavalry brigade are operating toward Saunas post.  In Natal there is no diminution  of Boer activity. It is reported  that sir Charles Warren is to be appointed governor of the Free State.  Nothing is known regarding sir  Redvers Buller, but. there is little  doubt regarding his removal, and  rumor has ifc that lord Kitchener  will get an important independent  command. The Boer peace commissioners- are understood to have  been disappointed by their visit to  The Hague. But they are determined to visit Berlin and Paris  before going to Washington.  strictures on officers in the field and  thereby rendering all the generals  timid and afraid of responsibility.  Those cavilling censors are quite  as ineffective as the ignorant small  bores who attacked the war oflice a  few months ago without measuring  ranges or ascertaining the real facts  of the case.   Lord Roberts is now  setting a  high standard  of work  and establishing a training school  in the field which will render British officers the best and most experienced iu the   world.   The reform     is     not     likely     to     end  with the campaign.; Lord   Kitchener   may   hot    be    destined   to  transform the   war-office and the  headquarters' staff,v!>hut Aldershot  methods are   doomed.,   The   influence of _ the smart insets   and   the  Guards officers, ia.undermined and  arrangements will be made for field  training   and 'battle*, tactics   over  large areas and on 'Comprehensive  lines."-   "'��� -v'^:'\:    '������ :.���'.-,  HOW THE BOER WAR STANDS  Keview of the Operations.  New Yomc, April  22.���Isaac  N.  GONFIDENGE   IN   ROBERTS  prisoners from the province Taya-  bas, southern Luzon, have arrived  at Manila. The iusurgents have  four hundred more Spaniards in  that district. Recently the Filipinos destroyed several rods of  railway line near Paniquo, in an  unsuccessful attempt to wreck a  train.  DEWET Sa1d~T01e KILLED  Pretoria News.  London, April 23.---The Daily  News has the following from Lorenzo Marquez, dated April 20th:  "It is reported here that general  Dewet has been killed.  "Other European ambulance  corps besides the Irish-Americans  are taking up arms in behalf of the  Boers.   The latter  are   unable to  obtain smokeless powder.  "Trenches aro being constructed  for eight miles round Pretoria.  There aro 62 guns in position at  Kroonstadt and seven French guns  at Pretoria. Twenty-five mines at  Johannesburg have been charged  with dynamite and the Johannesburg fort has been dismantled.  Everywhere Noticeable.  New York, April 22.���Isaac N.  Ford, in his cable letter to the  Tribune, discusses the South African  situation from the home standpoint  as follows: "The period of inaction  and expectancy has unnerved many  flighty and timorous souls, but the  ordinary man in the street goes  about his business quietly, and is  consoled by the reflection that the  British eonstitutioir~stands,~ that~_a~  wise queen reigns and that "Bobs"  is all right. Confidence in lord  Roberts has become in war times a  cardinal article of the nafcioual  faith, like respect for the constitution and reverence for tho queen.  It is unshaken and unassailable. Whether lord Boberts  be destined for a dukedom or not,  neither Marlborough nor Wellington, in the plenitude of their military prestige and political power,  ever exercised a more absolute dictatorship over the fortunes of British soldiers or the conditions of  public thought. There has not  been a whisper of censure of lord  Roberts foi* the censures which he  has passed upon generals who, six  months ago, commanded the confidence of the * nation, nor does any  journal in the United Kingdom  question tho expediency or necessity of a .protracted pause iu the  military operations in South Africa,  although the nation is weary of tho  war' and eager to have the campaign conducted with vigor aud inflexible determination.  " There is nothing in recent history more striking than the complete ascendancy of lord Roberts in  the political and military fortunes  of the empire. He has delivered  the government from political  anxieties, resorted the public faith  in the Anglo-Saxon military genius  and become the main rock of defence during the storm and stress of  war time. Lord Lansdowue, who  was exposed to a destructive fire of  criticism a few months ago respecting guns of inferior range, is now  assailed for publishing lord Boberts*  COLONEL DALOiTf ALL RIGHT  Interesting Developments.  Maseru, Basutoland, April 22.���  General Brabant's advanced guard  reached Bushman's "Kop last evening. The Boers held ',a strong position there with two, guns. The  engagement opened^ at sunrise with  heavy rifle fire. '=iAt 8:30, a in.  cannonading began^and continued  for several hours. .-'General Brab-  ant's forces are on' the plain ,and  have fairly opeii country all the  way to -Wepener. Four Boer  guns were hard at work all Saturday on Colonel Dalgety's position.  The British guns replied. at intervals.  Colonel Dalgety heliographs "All  well; Boers fired 300 shells yesterday without doing much damage."  The Boers are divided into three  divisions, two being in positions to  repeal the relief column, the distant  roar of whoso artillery is audible.  The Basutos are posted on the border for defensive purposes,, -They  are" behaving in orderly fashion,  but are showing the most intense  interest in the outcome of the developments of the next 24 hours.  , Premier Martin's Itinerary.  Kaslo, April 21���[Special to The  Tribune].���George Kane, who preempted Kaslo in the early days,  haspolitieal aspirations and is acting as premier Martin's advance  agent in the Slocan. Mr. Kane returned from Vancouver, via Nelson, last night and announced that  Martin'was to speak here on Friday  next instead of Wednesday. After  addressing tho electors of Nelson on  Monday, Mr. Martin, will go along  the Crow's Nest line, visiting Cran-  brooke, Moyie and Fort Steele. He  will get back on Friday, and if possible will address the electors of  Ainsworth - in the afternoon and  those of Kaslo at night. On Saturday he will take in Whitewater.  Three Forks and Sandon. Cody  and-Slocan City-will next-hear-him,-  aud then will come Rassland's turn.  The Yukon Telegraph.  Vancouver, April 22.���Mr. M.  W Crean, supeiiutendent of the  Yukon government telegraph, and  Mr. J. li. Charleson, supervisor of  Yukon public works, aro here on  route to QuesiieHe to inspect the  telegraph lino building northward  from Quesnelle to Atlin which,  when completed, will give the Klondike region direct communication  with Vancouver. A few old time  friends of Mr. Crean took advantage of his presence in Vancouver  to present him with a gold watcli  and chain, as a testimony of his  worth and the pleasantest associations of 25 years ago in tho days of  the old Dominion and Montreal  telegraph companies. Mr. Charleson says he will havc the gap between Quesnelle and Atlin spanned  by November.  Ploods in the Free State.  London, April 21.���The Bloemfontein correspondent of the Morn-  'ing Post, telegruphiug Thursday,  April 19th, says : ''There is already  a thirty foot flood of the Caledon  river which is reported to be still  rising. All the drifts on the Modder  are impassable. Traffic ia temporarily interrupted southward, the  water having washed tho ballast  from the line of the railway."  Second Contingent Man Dead.  Ottawa, April 21.--[Special to  The Tribune.]���The militia department is advised from Bloemfontein  that McMillan, artificer, Winnipeg,  has died.  Ford, reviewing the South African  war situation in a London cable to  the New York Tribune, filed at 1  a.m., says: "Light has been thrown  upon the mysterious operations in  the southeastern section of the Free  State. The Boers have been less  intent upon raiding the main British line of communications than  upon holding possession of the granaries between Wepener and Ficks-  burg and drawing off "general  Roberts', forces from. a direct advance north wards.- Theyjiave, from  Wepener; to Harrisniith, a base well  stocked with food supplies and well  suited for guerrilla-warfare.  Reports of the strength  of their  forces  in  these   mountainous  districts are exaggerated but with the  advantage of a'-hilly country and  roads impassable^ for British artillery, a few   commandoes   can do'  much to harrass  the flank of General Roberts' army.    It now seems  probable that General Roberts has  adapted himself to these   tactics,  and, without abandoning his direct  line  of advance, .may   sweep  the  eastern border as he goes aud carry  out   a   wide    turning   movement.  Otherwise,   the'relief "of Wepener  would have been ��� left  to Brabant  and Hart who are advancing northward    through    Rouxville.     Two  strong divisions  are   approaching  Weppner through Dewetsdorp, and  is conjectured  that  there may be  another one headed directly toward  Ladybraud.    The British, preparations are made on  so large a'scale  that the relief of the colonial force  at Weppner is likely to prove an incident ratherthan "the main motive.  When  the garrison has been rescued Ladybrand may be occupied  and   Ficksburg approached.     The  large  British force will be in the  right    Quarter   for    turning     the  Ventorsgurg-Senekal line * or lines,  audi or clearing theeasterh frontier. |  The   pres?    dispatches, = indicate'  that 'general Bundle  aud  general  rChermside,   with-  their   divisions,  were within a few miles of Dewetsdorp on Fi iday and' had a brush  with the enemy. ' There was rifle  firing   and    shelling    for    several  hours, and finally the  mounted infantry turned the Boers' intrenched  position and compelled 'them to fall  back two miles.     The fighting is  not described as serious, and  the  British are clearly superior in artillery   and   strength.    Bundle's  ad-  vance-was renewed yesterday and  fighting was in progress when  general Roberts sent his bulletin, Such  meagre     details     as    have   come  through point to a rear guard auction rather than a serious engagement. J  General Methuen's force at Bos-  bof'is compelled to remain active,  since his communications with Kimberley are menaced by small bands  of sharpshooters. There was a  -sharp skirmish-on Friday-in���which-  a British convoy was saved with  difficulty from assault by a considerable Boer foice. The convoy  in described as retiring from Swartz-  kopjesfoutein with a covering force  of the Kimberley mounted corps  and the Yorkshire Hussars, and the  enemy was beaten back after hard  fighting. The coveting force was  concealed and the Boers were them- '  selves taken by surpri.-e when Lhcy  attacked the convoy with three  guns.  There was a renewal of Boer ac-  activity yestewlay at Hlnndslaagtc,  where the Biitish positions wore  again shelled. It is not clear  whether these desultory attacks  and raiding operations southward  by small bauds are conducted seriously, or whether the Boers are  concealing the retreat of'their main  body from Biggarsbcrg, where-thoy  are described ns having constructed  twenty-live miles of intrenehments.  It is even more uncertain whether  general Buller is awaiting orders  from general Roberts, or whether  there has been a lack of co-operation between'the two commanders  which involves tho publication of  the reports' of the Spion Kop affair  and a possible change in the direction of the Natal field forces. The  war oflice is silent, and the secret  history of the campaign has not yet  been written.  jected to shelling and a heavy rifle  fire. The Boyal Irish rifles captured a Free State flag. The Boers  are well entrenched and hold their  ground tenaciously. The British  casualties have been'slight.  NELSON BASEBALL GLOB IS  In Full Swing Again.  The Nelson baseball club was reorganized for 1900 on Saturday  night and the indications all point  to the most successful season in the  history of the game in this city. A  representative gathering of base-  ��� bait enthusiasts met at the Hotel  Hume and proceeded to start the  ball rolling. Dr. Armstrong was  appointed chairman and Harry  Houston officiated as secretary. As  a matter of course the meeting decided to reorganize at once and the  election of officers resulted as follows: . ; ���'    :   :. '.';     '  John. Houston, president; James  Lawrence, patron; James Neelands,  manager; Harry Houston, secretary;  J. J. Malone, treasurer. Executive  committee: W. B. McLean, Charles  H. Ink, J. J. Malone and J.Neelands.  The meeting concluded that a  fund of $200 was necessary to manage the affairs of the club in a  thoroughly satisfactory manner  and the task of soliciting subscriptions was delegated to the executive. A further meeting is announced for Saturday next when  the subscription list will be presented. The gentlemen present  opened the campaign by'pledging  $25. The committee has no doubt  as to raising the sum indicated in  view of the popularity of the diamond game iu Nelson and the  unusually bright prospect for a  strong team.  An invitation from the Kalso  celebration committee for the team  to visit there on Queen's Birthday  and compete for a $75 purse  was laid before the meeting, but ifc  was decided to take no action thereon for a couple of weeks.  The' first club practice took place  yesterday-afternoon when "a number of players-worked out on le-  creation p.irk. Rockenfield /was out  in uniform and uncorked a selection  of swift curves for the entertainment of the men at bat. He has all  his last year's speed and with practice should be quite as capable if  not better than last year. Mills(  also came forth in uniform and  amused himself by spoiling most'of  the "good uns" which Rocky sent  his way. J. S. MeLeod of Calgary  was behind the bat. He played  four seasons with the St. John, New.  Brunswick, Roses, a fit st class team,  and is said to be crack-a-jaek. MeLeod will put in the season in Nelson and will get into the game  again. At present he is punching  cows at Calgary. A number of fans  occupied the bleacher and watched  the practice with interest.  ANOTHER JAILBIRD   FLITS  Kid McDonald's Record.  On Saturday afternoon Kid McDonald, a prisoner undergoing a six  months' sentence for vagrancy,  walked" out of the provincial jail  and scurried down the C.P.R.  track as fast as he could. Helms  not been seen .siuce, and the prospect of his getting clean away-  seems to be bright.  McDonald was arraigned before  F. B: C. Beer about a week ago aud  was sentenced to six months. His  record is bad and he has served  time at various jails in the province. Only a month or so ago the  Kid, as he is called, was run out of -  Nelson and transferred his stamping his ground to Bobson. He ���  ��� raised trouble there for a few weeks,  finally announcing his intention to  wipe out the resident constable  Alan Forrester. The officer went  after McDonald who tamely gave  up and was brought to Nelson.   -  Jailor Labby was on duty at the  jail on Saturday afternoon and  sot"  McDonald at s work scrubbing a cor^  ridor.   The Kid got a bucket and a  mop to do the work, while Labby ,  stood near at hand.    The job had'  not    progressed     far   when     the  keeper's duties called him away for  a few minute*--  On his- return Mc- , ^  Donald   was  not   to  be seen; and "  Labby     quickly   .  searched      the,  laundry    without     locating     the  prisoner!        Then  the     front     door  a     good    natured  oner was cutting grass,  a hurried question, the  he   rushed    to  near      which-  Siwash     pris-  Iu reply to  Indian said  McDonald had just gone around the  corner to get an armful of wood.'  The jailer went around the building  and was informed by a pedestrian  that a man wearing government'  clothes had Avent west on the C. P!  B. tracks and had passed him near  the Railway street crossing. This  was the last seen of McDonald.  The Kid changed his tellcale uniform at a shack down the track and  is supposed to havelieaded -toward-.  Robson.   .. ,  ' The jailors aro nob allowed to  j keep the front door of the institution locked,, a- fact in which contributed to McDonald's escape.  The escaped prisoner had manifested such anxiety to get into the  jail and was apparently so well satisfied with his lot that ifc was  thought he could hardly bo driven  away, and the officials would not  be surprised if he gave himself up.  At any rate jf McDonald crosses  the line aud stops there the authorities will consider themselves well  rid of him.  ms  NEW INDUSTRY FOR NELSON  UNITED STATES' DEMANDS  Fighting at   Walkerstroom.

CostiTAsrixoi'i.R, April 22.���The  Porte has replied to the American  demands stating that Turkey will  compensate American missionaries  under the same conditions as in the  case of other foreign subjects.  Washington, April 22.���Neither  secretary Hay nor the Turkish minister has been advised of tho reported action of the Porte in replying to the American demands. Jn  the absence of official information  and of the specific conditions of the  reply, officials here prefer not to  discus.-, the matter but express the  hope that a satisfactory and amicable settlement pi the differences  between the two countries will be  arrived at.  The United States legation joined  the other embassies iu protesting  against the increase of import  ditties in reply to the notification  of the Porte, asserting that the  United States government expects  to be previously consulted with regard to the changes. The Porte  has not yet replied to the last collective note, but the changed tone  of the Ottoman officials leads to a  belief that a settlement has- been  reached in conformity with the  demands of the foreign representatives. It is now fully expected that the Porte will invite the  embassies to discuss the proposed  changes.  There is the greatest interest in  political circles regarding the attitude of the United States in the indemnity claims, and ifc is- believed  that the powers having similar  claims will support A merican action.  -Another Brickyard Started.,  This  week  Nelson   will  boast of -  another  brickyard, centrally situated and yet not iu a position where  _ifc_wi_ll  cause-inconvenience The-  brickyard will be started by John  Lapoinfce and John Croft-, who ���>  obtained tho necessary permission  at a recent meeting of the city  council. They have got leave to  cut away the clay bank ou Josephine street between Front street  and the railroad track immediately  east of Burns ��fc Cos warehouse.  This hank will, ifc is estimated,  yield 10 million brick.  Mr.Lapoinfcehas purchased a Mascot brick making machine with a  capacity of 20,000 brick and went  up to Pilot Bay on Saturday to  arrange for its shipment to Nelson  where it is expected today. He  hopes to be turning out brick by  Wednesday or Thursday of this  week. He claims that the output  of his yard will be greater than the  combined output of the two local  yards already in existence, and that -  by reason of the location of his  yard he will be able to place brick  upon Baker street at a lower fignro  than his competitors.  ' The brick making machine, which  will be driven by steam, will be  placed on the northwest corner of  Josephine and Lake streets. Tlio  drying yard will bo ou Josephine  street between Lake and Trout  streets, and the kiln on Lake street  east of Josephine.  Dr. Talmage in England.  Manchk&tkk, England, April 22.  ���The Rev.

Bufc  in a sparsely populated country  like British Columbia, government  ownership of railways should not  be initiated by building railways  "that would be competitive roads in  districts where the total traffic is  , barely, sufficient to pay the fixed  charges and operating expenses for  existing    roads.     This   is   where  " premier Martin's policy is weak. He  '    would build roads that would compete with tho  Canadian " Pacific  in  the southern  portion of the prov-  t  ince, instead oi' in the northern por-  ��� tion of the-province-where-there-  are no road**. Martin's policy of  railway building is like candidate  Mackintosh's policy of road and  trail building. The one would spend  millions in building railways Avhere  r thoy aro not needed, and the other  would spend millions in gridironing  the mountain districts of the province with roads and trails that  would never be utilized. What the  people want U a government that  will conduct the affairs of the province ou business lines; they do not  want "plungers."  ' literally wiped the floor with them.  The meeting was called by the supporters of Mackintosh and it was  carried by Kerr against them, as  was also the meeting at Phoenix.  Mackintosh cannot carry a single  precinct in the Boundary end of  the riding.  The people do not want,a Martin  government, but in order to get  .what they want they must find  candidates -who can discuss the  issues that Mr. Martin has raised  without discussing Mr. Martin.,  Personal abuse will not defeat Mr.  Martin.

As  soon as the articles of Incorporation  of the company can be registered,  operations will be resumed, as advices from London are that the  "Scotch ci-owd," who are now in  control of the company, have ample  funds on hand and iu sight. This  is good news for Kootenay, and  especially for the Nelson district.  True Revelstoke Herald says : "A  " man'is needed who can dominate  " by intellectual superiority and  " force of will the Cottons and Mar-  " tins and their like." Candidate  Mackintosh can dominate his shout-  ers by paying them liberally for  their services, but no one ever  heard of him dominating anyone by  either intellectual superiority or  force bi will.  Lawvjsii Ki-:kr,  lately   of   New  Denver, but now of Phoenix, who  took an active part in tho election  in this tiding in 1S91, is more than  holding   even   the gang   of hired  shoutcrs   that   arc   spending candidate Mackintosh's money in the  Rossland   riding.      He    met   star  shouters Bowes, Goodeve and Tebo  at Greenwood the other night and  Ir is reported that the mine managers have already put up $1000  to elect a candidate in this riding  who will do their bidding. This  means that the riding is to be debauched; when the "better classes"  can be bought with the promise of  bestowal of honors, the mine managers believe that the "poorer classes"  will readily sell their honor for  money.    .

The  article   reprinted   in  Tuesday's issue of the News-Advertiser  from the Toronto "Word, as to the  ourly connection of Mr. Martin with  these valuable coal lields, although  substantially correct, is inaccurate  in some details and does not fully  show  the   numerous  relationships  which he has assumed in this niat-  ,ter.    The following are the actual  r facts:  In the year 1890, shortly after the  Liberals came into power at Ottawa,  it was understood that a proposal  to aid the construction of the Crow's  Nest Pass Raihvay was under the  consideration of the Dominion Government.    A lawyer   of   Victoria,  one of the most prominent barristers of the  provincial  bar, was in  Spokane, Washington, at the time.  This  gentleman  had acted professionally for  Mr. Corbin,   the  promoter    of   the   Nelson   and   Port  Sheppard   Railway   and   the   line  from     Northport      to     Itossland.  IIu   mentioned the subject of the  Crow's    Nest    Pass    Raihvay    to  Mr.  Corbin and asked  him  if he  could carry out the undertaking if  the government gave a subsidy and  some  arrangement  could be  made  with the parties who had tho charter for. the British Columbia Southern Railway, with its valuable land  grant.    The proposed railway could  be   connected   with   Mr.   Corbin's  load   and   form   a  very   valuable  feeder   for    traffic.       Mr.    Corbin  thought favorably of the suggestion, but intimated that he  had no  connections or influence at Ottawa.  The  lawyer  recommended  him  to  secure the services" of a legal gentle-  [-  man,    who    happened   to   be    in  Spokane at the time, as one who  Was   well    acquainted    with    the  Is now prepared to issue. Drafts and  Letters of Credit on Skaguay, U. S.,  Atlin, B. C, and Dawson City, N. W. T.  government and leading men among  its supporters iu parliament and  who being at that time rather  "down on his luck"���as the phrase  goes���from having lost both his seat  in parliament aud his expectation  of a place in the new cabinet, was  looking around i'or some way to  retrieve his fortunes. It is, perhaps, scarcely necessary .to say that  the individual referred to was Mr.  Joseph Martin.  Through tho introduction of the  lawyer from Victoria Mr. Mai tin  was brought into contact with Mr.  Corbin and made acquainted with  the proposition. He agreed to the  proposal that he should immediately proceed to Ottawa and do his  best to secure the subsidy and charter i'or Mr. Corbin. The latter accordingly provided him with transportation to Ottawa as the first  ->tep towards paying Mr. Martin for  his services, wliich, if they had a  successful result, were to be further remunerated on a very handsome scale.  Mr. Martin departed for Ottawa.  "Weeks passed and ran into months  but no word reached Mr. Corbin  from him. At last, to the utter  astonishment of both Mr. Corbin  and his Victoria lawyer, the news  came that the Canadian PaciGc  Railway Company had secured the  subsidy for the road and that Mr.  Martin was iu that company's employ.  But this was not all. Mr. Martin  has an excellent nose for any enterprise or speculation which promises  satisfactory returns. In connection  with his position as a solicitor for  the Canadian Pacific railway, he  was brought into contact with  Messrs. Cox and Jaffray and their  associates in the company, which  had been organized to open up the  great coal deposits in the Crow's  Nest Pass. Mr. Martin desired to  secure au interest in the coal company, but his wishes in this respect  were not gratified, and, from that  disappointment may be dated the  liostility. which he has since displayed to the company aud those  connected with it.

LAY, Manager.  THE   CAPE   TO   CAIRO.  In an outline sketch of African  railway building .The Railway Age  gives in detail the work accomplished and still remaining .to be done in  making   the   connection, between  Cairo and the Cape.   The line most  easily  established would be partly  by water and partly by railway existing and projected.   The southern  starting point would be Fort Salisbury,  to wliich place there is already raihvay connection with Cape  Town.     Work    on   the   extension  from Fort Salisbury through Mash-  onaland to the Zambesi river has  been already started.    There   are  two routes feasible from the Zambesi.    The railway can be built in a  straight line to the southern point  of the Tanganyika .Sea, or this sea  itself can be used for a length of 310  miles.    From the northern point of  the Nyassa Sea a railway connecting with the southern point (Aber-  korn) of the Tanganyika Sea would  then have to be constructed., Again  on the north end of the latter sea a  railway has to be laid down up to  the Albert Edward Sea and to the  Albert Nyanza.    From  that point  the Nile is used with the exception  of the sections with the cataracts,  which are to be avoided by a circuitous railway line.  On the line the railway from  Cape Town to Buluwayo, 1,350  miles, is already in operation. From  Buluwayo to Lake Nyassa the distance is 050 miles, and the line is  under construction, a part .being  now completed. There is then a  stretch of 310 miles by water over  the Nyassa Sea. The link to be  built from the north point of Nyassa to the south point of Tanganyika  is 180 miles, and that would reach  the Tanganyika Sea, navigable for  400 miles. From that sea to the  Albert Nyanza there is a line of 310  miles partly by rail and partly by  water, aud the waterway on the  Albert Nyanza is 185 miles. The  railway along the Nile cataracts to  Lado as 125 miles, and there is then  a navigable stretch of 1,000 "miles  o i the Nile and 1,180 miles of rail-,  way from Khartoum to Cairo, mak  ing a total length when completed  of 5,690 miles.. '  Of the required raihvay line to  connect, the Cape and Cairo, ._3,720  miles in round numbers, a little  oyer half (about 2,170 miles) is already in operation , or will be  shortly completed. About 1,550  miles,.are to bebuilt, the expenditure on wliich is estimated at from  $100,000,600 to $125,000,000. A  further scheme,is to connect Cairo  with Cape Town by an uninterrupted railway, line, for wliich purpose  an additional length of 3,480 miles  wouldhaye. to be.constructed, involving, an expenditure of more  than $250,000,000. The Raihvay  Age gives due credit to British enterprise iu opening up the dark  continent.,-It is British lines that  reach .toward the district of the inland seas, from the south by way of  Buluwayo, from the north by way  of Khartoum, v from the east by  way of Mombassa, aud from the  southeast by way of Quilimane.  effect..

If they  spent some of their time iu the  healthy discipline of a cadet corps  tlieir bodies and their minds would  both be-beneficially trained by the  drill and exercises.  Drilling m Schools.  -   The movement instituted by the  Nanaimo school trustees in favor of  giving all the children a thorough  course of drilling under a competent instructor, certainly has  the  support and approbation of the vast  majority of the people.   Lord Roberts is decidedly in favor of it.   He  recently said:     "Lads who   have  been efficiently trained would probably become quite as effective soldiers in an equally short, space of  time  as  would   the  Reserve   men  after they have been  away from  the��colors for three or four years."  Lord Wolseley, lord Wantage and  other distinguished soldiers are also  strong advocates of it, and in England a drill sergeant is an essential  iu every,well regulated school.   The  School  Cadet  Corps 'is one of vthe  most popular institutions in England  today.    At  Portsmouth   the  other day detachments of boys from  five   local   schools   went   through  their drill before sir James Fergus-  ,son,, sir Henry Craik, lord FrankT  fort, and others, and were admii'ed.  for the   smartness   and   precision,  with which they went through company   drill,   trooping   the   colors,,  march past, cutlass drill, and dumbbell exercises.    Sir James Fergus-  son is also urging the house of commons to favor compulsory drill in  schools,    It is regarded that, a part  from the   military ��� aspect  of the  question,  a 'system  of drill in all  schools and the-formation of cadet  corps would have an excellent social  Spending  Mackintosh Money.
