TUPPER SWITCHING ROUND  Political Rumors-  Vanx'OUVKK, April 13.���[Special  to The Tribune.]���Sir Hibbert Tupper addressed six hundred residents  of Chilliwack on Saturday night.  Ho modified his previous statement  against party lines being drawn by  agreeing to that course generally,  but in some constituencies where an  anti-Martin Liberal was running  and would necessarily poll a large  voto,/he thought the Conservatives  should work in with him to defeat  Martin's candidates.  The latest political rumor has it  that justice Walkem will resign  shortly on account of old age and  W will be succeeded on the bench by  | Aulay Morrison, M. P. for New  Westminster. Then George Adams,  a strong Martin supporter, and D.  J. Munu, Conservative, are to contest Morrison's federal seat.  Publicity is given by the local  papers to the statement that Yates,  Beebe aud Ryder are to be replaced  in Martin's cabinet by Percy Mills,  a Victoria lawyer, ex-aldcrman Gilmour of Vancouver, aud probably  alderman McQueen.  J. B. Charlsou, superintendent of  public works in the Yukon, arrived  here today. Seventy-five miles of  new wire between Quesuello and  Atlin on the through Hue to Dawson have been strung, and the work  is progressing rapidly.  The Boer Delegates.  Nkw York, April 15.���S. N. Ford  cables the Tribune from Londou  this moiniug regarding the Boer  delegates as follows: "Mr. Fischer  ]ij;,o been reproaching the Portuguese Avith a betrayal of the interests of the Boers under the pretence of supporting them. He assumed that the British Avill speedily be allowed to land at Delagoa  Bay and occupy Lorenzo Marquez,  aud that the  consent of Portugal  'Jias been already obtained. His  reproaches are .accepted _by_ the  principal diplomatists as- evidence  that the transfer and partition of  Portuguese East"Africa are impending, and. that the German emperor  will not be forced to wait until lhe  close of the commission befbro convincing  his  subjects   that ho has  , made excellent   business   arrange  j incuts with lord "Salisbury. The  Boer delegates are on their way  to The Hague.' There arc no signs  of a willingness on the parfc of any  government to  receive them, even  jif   they   havo   terms  of peace to  [suggest.   Cigar Men Locked Out,   .  Montreal, April 15.���The li'ou-  jble between the cigar manufact-  lurersaud their employers is spread-  ling and now threatens the closing  [of almost all the factories ju Can-  jada. The trouble originated iu the  Ifactories of J. Ilirsch, Sons & Go.  land L. (). Grothe, over non-adherence to the union rules regarding the  employment of apprentices. The  j union ~~ ordered a" striker "The  [manufacturers havo a strong  {association, and had promised  (Messrs. Hirsch & Grothe assistance.  I On Siituulay night an evidence of  this came when Harris, Youugheart  )&Co. and Gonllet Brothers locked  [out their men until such time as  'the union eame'to terms with tho  other firms. Tho statement is made  I tiiat if a settlement is not speedily  I effected other largo factories will  [also lock out their employees.  of duty or business. I am sure this  would not bo the case if it were  realized at home that visitors who,  in ordinary times, would be most  welcome, under existing conditions  become a serious source of  inconvenience, interfering with  the work of military and civil officers and putting a strain on our  limited means of accommodation,  which are greatly required for  those who have duty to perform  here or who aro invalided from the  front. A considerable increase in  the expense of living, at all times  very high, is caused by the influx  of visitors, and this is a hardship to  persons of the latter class." After  saying that there is no place less  suitable for recreation than South  Africa tit present, sir Alfred Milner  concludes as follows: "Lord  Roberts, to whom I have submitted  tliis message, authorizes me to add  that he fully concurs iu it."  A    BRAVE    INDIAN    BOY  Rescued a White Companion.  Trail, April 15.���[Special to The  Tribune.]���In what bid fair to be a  hotly contested game of Association  football on the grounds across the  river, between the railroad boys  and the Trail town team, two men  got a kick at the ball at the same  time, and both are now iu the hospital. Ian McGladdery had a leg  broken in three places and a player  named Mortimer also had a leg  broken.    No other score.  In crossing the i iver in a cauoe  on the return from the game, a son  of Mr. Atkinson, the liveryman, and  a young Indian lad named "Jo,"  both about 13 years of age, were  upset, aud both narrowly escaped  drowning. The young Indian  pluckily assisted the Atkinson boy  into the canoe, but in climbing in  himself upset the canoe again, and  the swift water was carrying both  into the whirlpool rapids, young  Atkinson going under. The Indian  lad heroically dived after but'lost  him,1 then -diving the second time  fished him up again, and after a  severe struggle managed to right  the canoe, place his comrade within,  and swimming against it, lauded  him. safely, himself completely exhausted, and had to be helped out  of the water.  A number of citizens who witnessed the brave act made up quite  a purse and handed it to the young  hero before he had yet fidly recovered.  BOER WAR AND DIPLOMACY  By Isaac Ford.  Nkw York, April 15.���I. N. Ford's  cable letter to this morning's Tribune is largely devoted to a thoughtful discussion of tho South African  war situation in its relation to  diplomacy, commerce, industries  and finance. Ho says iu this connection : The military situation is  full of promise with lord Roberts'  army massed in irresistible strength  for the march of 300 miles to Pretoria, and tho long line of 700 miles  from Bloemfontein to Cape Town  securely guarded. The Boer raiders  have failed to break hi? line of communication by a counter attack,  and the Dutch armies are powerless  to check the advance of Roberts'  soldiers when they receive marching  orders.  The   diplomatic situation   could  not be better for England, since her  relations   with   both   France   and  Russia have improved.    The German   government  is friendly and  helpful, and foreign intervention in  South  Africa is  utterly impracticable.    The  British  policy,  as expressed by sir Alfred Milner  in his  sagacious  speech  with the significant motto "Never again," has behind it" a united empire and it prohibits any settlement  or compromise by which opportunities will be  offered for another such campaign.  Ireland plays an important and  "honorable part in  the united empire, providing the bravest soldiers  and  the only generals capable of  winning victories, and Dublin, temporarily, is appropriately the capital with a populace loyal and devoted to the queen  The United Kingdom, moreover,  continues to show signs of marvellous prosperity even under the  storm and stress of war. Almost  evci'y industry has received au impetus from the war, notably the  iron and textile trades. There has  been a great increase of production  and' employment, and with the  temporary"withdrawal of a largo  body of workers in Khaki to the  seat of war skilled labor has been  in demand and commands higher  wages.  Lettridge is well known in Buffalo  and was born in Fort Erie, Ontario,  just over the Niagara river from  this eity.. Her maiden name was  Bachus. She married about twenty  years ago and for a time lived at  Black Rock. Her husband was a  railroad man. But little is remembered concerning him, and nothing  is known of the divorce said to  have been 'granted. During the  Christmas holidays she wa.s at Foit  Erie to attend the funeral of her  mother.  ITALIAN STRIKER? DEFIANT  THE C. P. R.'S LATEST RIVAL I f"i*fL jsfft  DEATH OF A MILLIONAIRE  A Brutal Crime.  Torino. Ohio, April 15.���Shortly  Iboforo midnight last night two  jt ramps with handkerchiefs , tied  (over their faces stopped at the  jhouso of two sisters, Kate and  ���Johanna Sullivan, living four miles  jwest of "West Toledo, knocked at  jthe door and as Johanna opened  Jthe door one of the men struck her  [across the head with a club knock-  ling her down. Kate sprang to the  jasfistance of her sister when* the  [second  tramp felled her  with an  axe helve.    They were then bound  and gagged and the house robbed.  Johanna died in a short time and  [Kate  is  a raving  maniac   as  the  result of hei''injuries.    The tramps  [escaped with #200 in money.  Unwelcome Visitors.  Loxnox, April 14.���Joseph Chamberlain, secretary of state i'or the  colonies, has teceived this dispatch  from sir Alfred Milner, British high  (commissioner in South Africa: "Tho  .number of visitors to Routh Africa  'is, constantly increasing and includes many���especially ladies���  wiio seem to have no particular call  BOERS MISUS^PRISONERS  Lord Roberts' Protest.  B/jOKMfoktbin, April 14.���Lord  Roberts, in his telegram of protest  to president Kruger regarding the  treatment to which the colonial officers and troops who are now prisoners at Pretoria havo been subjected, complains that the Boers  have treated them as-if- they- were  ci iinitials confined iu jail. He  points out that there are not a few  cases of fever and dysentry in tho  prisoners' camp at Watervaal, that  tho Transvaal government failed to  supply on the demand of the doctor  tine necessary medicines aiul medical  comforts, that the prisoner were  forced to bivouack on the open veldt,  that the sick were placed ou'au  open .shed with an iron roof, and  that it was only when tho now doctor threatened to resign that medicine and mattresses were supplied,  lie invites president Kruger to  remedy this stale of things, and  contrasts it with the treatment the  British government gives to the  Boer prisoners, sick and wounded,  who, as lord Roberts says, "receive  the same treatment that our own  soldiers do."  Fanners who had taken the oath  to abstain from further co-operation with the queen's enemies were  found signalling to the Boers at  Karce siding and have been  brought here.  Boer Tried to Escape.  St. Helena, April 15.���Colonel  Schniel and two other Boer prisoners were landed today and sent  to the citadel in consequence of an  attempt to escape. It appears that  colonel Schniel bribed a boatman to  take a letter to the Dutch cruiser,  but the boatman, by mistake took it  to the British cruiser Niobe, A  large knife wao found in the possession of one of the three. Colonel  Schniel walked to the citadel declining a carriage that was placed  at his disposal. I  A Mysterious Affair.  Chicago, April 15. ��� Rufus  Wright, the' millionaire manufacturer of rubber tires, who was shot  during a scuffle for the possession  of a revolver in the apartments of  Mrs. Louis Lettridge at tho Leland  hotel, died today from the effects  of the wound. Wright died with  words of exculpation on his lips for  the woman whose revolver was responsible for his death, saying that  the woman was not to blame for  -liia condition and that he had the  revolver iu his .baud when it-was  discharged.  Mrs. Lettridge, iu a statement at  the police headquarters, said : "I  cannot remember what led up to  the production of the revolver. I  was talking to Mr. "Wright when he  asked me to show liim a revolver of  which he had spoken previously.' I  refused and we talked on other  matters for a while. I remember  that 1 finally went to my valise and  took out my weapon, and when he  saw it Mr. Wright begged me to  throw ifc away, and S remember he  tried to take the weapon from, my  hand and wo scuffled. T stood up,  and he was sitting on the couch. 1  had hold of the weapon when,  with a sudden movement, lie  -tore the " revolver from iny  grasp. lie fell backward and I followed him. I managed to get hold  of the butt of the weapon, he holding the guard. As we struggled  the weapon was discharged, and  bad as I felt from the liquor I had  drunk; I could not help crying out  when I saw he was wounded. He  fell back on the sofa and gasped  that he was shot. I laughed hysterically and told him he was all  right, He insisted he had been  wounded and begged rae to call a  doctor.  "The otory that Mr. Wright came  to my room iu the interests of a  friend is false. He came to see me  at my request. We drank together  and talked of matters wliich concerned ourselves. Wo had a pleasant conversation until the revolver  was introduced by chance and the  struggle came which ended in his  death."  BukfaIiO, April 15.���Mrs. Louisa  Militia Orders/. Out.  Crontox Landing, New York,  April 15.���While everything is  quiet and peaceful in the neighborhood of the Cornell dam tonight,  nearly 300 armed deputies are  guarding the works and each of  them is guessing as to what to-  morroAV may bring' forth. The  striker's are very determined in  their demands, and swear that if  outside labor is brought here, they  will fight tooth and nail to prevent  it. Angelo Rotelli, who is the recognized leader of tiie strikers, said  this afternoon :  "This is a fight to a finish. If  the bosses attempt^ to "bring in  other laborers, wesliall>preventany  work lieing done, and if .the militia  come to help them,r their we will  fight the soldiers. The bosses will  have to give us our rights and until  they do, not'another stroke will be  put in the big dam.")  The strikers are. all armed with  guns and pistols, aud in this regard  they have a decided advantage  over the sheriff's deputies, who  have only long night.sticks and 32-  calibre revolvers. ~A meeting of  the strikers has been called for 4  o'clock' tomoi row morning.  New York, April 15.���General  Roe announced today that lie had  received a formal"written demand  from sheriff Molley of Westchester  county this morning tg'call out 500  troops to go immediately to the  ,sceuo of .the Italian'laborers' strike  'at- Crotou Dam. lie said sheriff  Molley came down from Westchester and gave him the demand in  person.

The men will be  ordered out early tomorrow morning. The troops will number 3 50  infantry and 350 cavalry. Squadron "A" will furnish 200 men aud  troop "C" will have 150.  International Tramway.  Greenwood, April 14.���Work  started today on what promises to  be the biggest local enterprise in  Boundary district, an undertaking  that tho Canadian Pacific has good  reason to fear when the mines  start outputting ores to the smelters. This morning a party of engineer commenced making preliminary surveys for the line of the  Greenwood & Phoenix Tramway  Company, from this town to Phoenix, a distance of seven miles.  George II. Collins, secretary of  the company said:  "The approximate cost of seven  miles is $150,000. Wo shall build  branches into Greenwood, Dead-  wood, Wellington and Summit  camps, and between here and Midway on the international boundary  line to connect with the Great  Northern. Over half a million dollars is required and the money is  being invested by prominent American railroad men who aie shareholders in the local company. We  will push the work to speedy completion. Arrangements have been  completed with the Cascade Light  & Power Company for a supply of  electricity by long distance transmission. Duncan Mcintosh, president of the company, is now east  purchasing material for the tramway.  "The undertaking has been kept  quiet until a charter was obtained  from the provincial government,  and we havc stolen a march on the  Canadian Pacific, who have beeu  too busy defeating a Grand Forks  .scheme for a railroad to watch us.  This road means competition for  Boundary and we have the funds  to build it."  No reason was  assigned for the shutdown, .but the  cigarmakers believe they have been  locked out to prevent them from  contributing to the support of the  2200 strikers in Kerbs, Wortheim  <fc Schiller's factory, who have been  out six weeks.  BASUTOS GUARD FRONTIER  Patt ick Welch, the Spokane railroad contractor, arrived hero today  and is preparing to submit bids for  construction. " The promoters "are  Duncan Mcintosh, George H.

At least 100 members of  parliament have gone to Paris, the  Riviera or Rome for a fortnight.  "There is a projnise of seeing the  king of Sweden next week, and the  queen is believed to be willing to  make special efforts to start the  season iu May with several splendid  functions, The opera will bo -well  patronized, as there will be fewer  balls and parties this year and less  entertaining in the great houses  than for many years."

The  orders of the resident are that the  Basutos are not to be allowed to  cross the Free State frontier on any  pretext   whatever.      Two   natives  who crossed and looted an abandoned Boer farm  are  now  in custody.    Colonel Dalgetty's position  is strong and well chosen, but he is  completely surrounded.    The Boers  have  their backs against Basutoland and if they stay much  longer  they will be hemmed in.    The British operations are  keenly watched  from the neighborhood  Shelling ancl sniping have been  going on steadily during the last  six days. Colonel Dalgetty's guns  are admirably served, and there is  no waste of ammunition. The j  Boers, when they see the flash of J  the cordite, bolt into their holes or  behind walls. The ambulances are  close to the border, but the killed  and wounded are not removed until  nightfall in order to conceal the  number of casualties. The Boera  are fatigued and their horses are  tired and footsore.  The Boers attacked fiercely the  British northern position on Monday, April Oth, but they were  beaten, back at daybieak. Nothing  is known here of the casualties of  either side.

Five hundred Boers, under commandant Swanpeel, forced .the Bi it-  isJi rifles to evacuate Rouxville.

New York, April 15 Tho brutality of "red tape" in the United  States navy department is emphasized by I��aae N. Ford in a London  cable to this morning's Tribune in  regard to the physical breakdown  of commander Colwcll. Mr. Ford  says: "Mr. Colwell closed his accounts and settled up his business  with his naval successor at the American embassy on Thursday, but  was ordered by his physician into a  hospital for the next week and forbidden to sail by today's steamer  for New York. He has been suffering from overwoik and complete  nervous breakdown, and is not in  condition to carry out the orders of  the navy department and report in "  San Francisco early in May and sail  for the China squadron.  "Dr. Lennox Browne, his London  physician, had warned him that he  was unfit for work aud in absolute  need of rest. Two medical letters  were sent to Washington with an  alarming account of his condition  and application was made for three  months leave on waiting orders.  The navy department, through -  assistant secretary Allan, cabled to  him yesterday its refusal of his  application.  "This is a curious illustration  of  the  thoughtless  brutality  of "red  tape" ; the navy department seems  I to be unwilling  to accept medical  I certificates    of    eminent   English  physicians   respecting   commander  Col well's   physical   condition,  and  .  will not be convinced by anything  short of a coroner's inquest  that a  faithful officer is incapacitated  for  a long journey and  immediate sea  service."  Do Not Want Wages Eeduced.  A  meeting   of   the^ journeymen   -  jewellers and watchmakers resident  in Nelson took pl.ice  on  Saturday  night, nine out of a *otal of eleven  tradesmen   being   present.      ,!.   II.  jS"ii-kci>on presided, and in opening  drew attention to the object of tho  meeting,   wliich    was    to   protest  ag,un.sb the cut-rates announced by  one dealer who has  inaugurated  a  scale of prices  50  per cent  below  the   former   charges,   which  were  adopted    by    tho   trade   here   as  reasonable in view of  the  cost of  living, etc.     The employing firms  a'ssert  lhat  with  cut  prices  thoy  cannot possibly pay tho wages they  now   pay   to their    watchmakers.  After  discussing   the   question  at    *  some length the meeting concluded  to have Mr. Niekerson  call  on and  remonstrate with  tho dealer  who .  has cut the rates.   If this fails they  state   that   other, means   will  bo  adopted.    Tho jewellers and watchmakers propose to organize to^main-  tain the present rate of wages.  Another Stamp Mill,  new  10*stamp   mill on  H  0  The new 10*stamp mill on the  Biinkor__Hill_ mine- has -boen-com-  pleted. This property is situated  On Sixteen-mile creek, off the Pond  d'OreiPo river just this side of the  international boundary line. J, J.  Warren, the manager of the property, was in Nelson on Saturday on  the business of his company and informed a representative of TilK  Tiuiu'ne that he expected that the  mill would be started upon Wednesday of this week. Ho has engaged Mr.  Harvey, formerly superintendent  of the Poorman, and professor Garvin, now in charge of tho Granite  mill, to run the mine and mill.  Messrs. Warren and Harvey left  for the Bunker hill on yesterday  morning's train.  Trap Shooting Scores.  Saturday's shooting at the gun  club's traps was hardly up to the  mark, although tho fact that rain  fell steadily while tlio firing cou- ,  tinned accounts in a measure for  tho comparatively low scores of tho  majority.

Ford  in a London cable to this morning's  Tribune, says that outside of Paris  and  its  exposition   they  are  dull.  "The Ashantee  outbreak," he  continued, "is picturesque  rather than  serious.    It has been caused by sir  Frederick Hodgson's indiscreet /.cal  in attempting to discover and seize  a   big   nugget  which  was   hidden  away when king Prempeh was  defeated.    This nugget was  once the  gold stool of royalty in  Coomassie,  but   it   is   also    a    native    fetish  which  the  governor  of   the   Gold  Coast   ought   to   have  allowed  to  remain in its hiding place.    French  intrigues continue in Morroeco and  covert advances aro constantly being made in the far interior.  There  will be a series of court ceremonials  in Berlin early in   May when  the  crown prince will come of age  and  the emperor of Austria will be received    with    exceptional    honor.  The generosity  of the king of the  Belgians in making over to the na-.  tion a series of valuable properties,  contrasts strangely with his closeness aud parsimony in dealing with  his daughter Stephanie^ with whose  middle-aged romance lie has beeu  entirely out of sympathy.

The Prevailing Note.  New York, April 15.���Isaac JNT.  Ford; the London correspondent of  tho New York Tribune, cables his  paper at 1 o'clock this morning, reviewing the war situation' as follows: "Optimism is the note of the  meagre dispatches received -from  the front during the last 24 iioiuV.  The long halt is nearly ended and  preparations are making for an irresistible march northward. It is intimated that geueral Roberts can  leave 20,000 men to guard the railway- behind- him "and" still" lutve"  80,000 men available foi\an advance  to the Vaal river.  The colonial garrison is not only  holding its ground, but is punishing tho Boers, whoso retreat will  be cut off by the force advancing  across the country from Reddersburg. Ono military writer assumes  that tho Boer raiders are already  entrapped and will never succeed  in rejoining tho main body in the  north.  The dispatches indicate a marked  return of confidence which is, without doubt, well founded on the  overwhelming strength of general  Robert's forces. Bnt there was no  definite information at midnight of  any fres3i Miccess of the - British  amis. This optimism even takes a  brighter line at Cape Town than in  London. It is reported that a feeling  of eoniidence in the speedy relief of  Mafeking is entertained there, aud  that good news will be received before the end of April, The ways  and means arc not stated. General  Methuen is active at Boshof, but  Mafeking is dependent upon its  own resources unless a mysterious  column has been sent north by a  long detour from Kimberly, while  the AVarrenton garrison has been  bombarding Fourteen Streams.  One reason for the British confidence is the lack of pasturage on  the veldt which will deprive the  Boers of the use of their wiry,  hardy ponies-. General Roberts' inaction has brought nature into the  field as an ally against the Boeis.  The high veldt leading toward the  Transvaal will  be   without grass  INCORPORATED 1670.

Tho first annual general meeting  of the 'Ymir Gold Mines, Limited,  was  held  on  March  22nd,  at the  Cannon Street Hotel, Loudon, under  tho-presidency" of Mr. Montagu F.  Armstrong.    The chairman, in proposing the adoption of the report  and accounts, expressed the gratification of the board at being able to  lay before the shareholders such a  satisfactory statement of accounts,  showing not only the soundness of  the  present  position   of  the  company, but the prosperous career it  had    before  it.     They  -would    be  aware that the company purchased  its property from the London and  British Columbia Goldfields, Limited,  the  purchase  price  being  the  whole of its share capital?that company agreeing to provide the property with- the  necessary 40-staiiip~  mill, and its assessories erected and  complete  and  ready for working.  As at the time of talcing the property over there was a considerable  amount  of   ore  blocked^   out  and  ready for  treatment,  it naturally  followed that the'Ymir Gold Mines,  'Limited, would be able to run alone  Avithout working1 capital: iu other  iirords, the working capital which  was generally required  for equipping a mine of this character was  provided by tho vendor company in  the form of development work done  and machinery   on  the   property.  Under those circumstances, no pub-  lie issue oi' the shares was  made.  - The company was incorporated on  Aug  29th, 1S9S,  and entered iuto  possession of tho pioperty on September l&t following; but, owing to  unavoidable delays, regular milling  work did not take place until June.  After  thatv date  the mill was not  worked in .August nor for half of  September, 0\\ ing to an unfortunate  accident iii the driving gear, necessitating considerable alteration.    Tt  would   therefore be  seen that,  although the expenses continued from  August,   1S0S, to  the  end   of  last  year���a period of sixteen months���  the  mill  only  worked   1721-   days,  thus  limiting the  revenue-earning  capacity  of the mine  during  the  ���period    covered  by    the accounts  down  to  about six  months;   and  when they considered that during  those six  mouths'  woik the mine  produced a profit of ��20,000, after  writing  down    the  vaiious   items  shown in tho accounts, he was sure  they would agree "with him that the  result of last year's operations was  exceedingly satisfactory.    Mr. Fow  . lerls_report_ and_drawings_attache_d  to the accounts would have provided the shareholders with considerable information witiiregaid to the  present condition oF the miue and  the result of the woik carried out.  and  ho thought  ho would  be expressing the opinion of the shareholders in saying that it also showed the careful, thoughtful and able  manner in which every delail connected with the nndeitaking was  being followed by Mr. Fowler and  tho  company's   lepresentativos  in,  British Columbia.    From Mr. Fowler's report it would be noticed that  at the end of last year 570!) feet of  tunnels  and   other  workings   had  been driven, opening up above tlio  '300-foot level the largo' quantity of  139,122 tons of payable ore in one  chute alone.    They would doubtless  be struck with such a large amount  of ore being opened up at such a  shallow^ depth; but  this  was  ex:  plained "by the fact that their roof  was lenticular in form, in one place  leaching a width of over .'JO feet,  and Us narrowest width being not  less  than  six feet.     In  that  reef  they had three classes of ore���carbonates, galena Ore, and milling ore,  the two former being particularly  rich,  running as  high as ��So per  ton.    This did not pass through the  juill at all ; but was sacked at the  mine   and  shipped   direct  to   the  smelters.    The milling ore was of  lower    grade,    aud    was    pas��ed  through tho mill, the amalgamating  plates   producing  bullion   and the  concentrating machinery producing  concentrates, which, like the richer  ore, was sacked and shipped to the  smelters.    Having  three classes of  ore to deal with, shareholders would  understand how difficult it was to  prevent the returns varying somewhat month by month; consequently the yearly profits must not be  calculated from the return of any  single month. However, the accounts distinctly showed from the  six months period of Avorking what  the real average was likely to be,  although, for his part, he should not  be surprised if at auy time, owing  to the enormous width of the vein,  they came across an exceedingly  largo body of the richer class of ore,  which would naturally raise the  average.  The report told them that they  had produced from the ore as met  with a net profit of ��1 2s. 10jd. per  ton,    after   making    all    possible  charges against the revenue.    The  vein might, he thought,,safely be  said  to   continue  throughout   the  full length of their property, and it  was only reasonable to hope that  upon    the   westward  continuation  of developments, othey pay chutes  would be encountered ; and, again,  Mr. Fowler, in his report, held out a  certain  amouunt of hope  that  in  driving the new No. 10 tunnel there  was every chance of encountering  another vein altogether.    That be-  iug so, the directors did not hesitate, in October last, to increase the  milling  capacity of the mine from  35,000 tons^tp 70,000 tons ;perjjaii4  num.    Iu order to  carry out that  arrangement,    it    was    necessary  either to increase the capital of the  company or to raise a loan, aud he  thought there could be no two opinions as to the course adopted having been the better one in the interests of the shareholders. Whereas  the mine had. proved itself by  last year's Work capable of producing a profit of something like ��40,-  000 per annum, by the introduction  of the extra machinery that profit  would be doubled, and would thus  afford ample opportunity of repaying the loan, and they would stand  with an unimpaired capital of ��200,-  000 and an earning-capacity of ��S0,-  000  per annum.    He hoped shareholders, would not feel disappointed  that  the* directors had decided to  withhold a further dividend just at  present; but they felt it wiser to  delay doing so until the' extra 40  stamps  were running and the revenue- increased.      lie   wished1 to  point  out  that although   the   accounts showed a present available  profit  of   ��10.000,   some   of that  amount had been  expended  upon  development aud   machinery, mid  was consequently not available at  rtho present time.    When the time  came���and he   thought At   would  come very shortly���it  would "give  the directors the utmost pleasure  to  recommend regular half-yearly  dividends. They were all aware that  a    very    serious    strike    existed  throughout a large part of British  Columbia  from  June  of last year  until the middle of last month; but  he \va& pleased to be able to report  that, Owing in a great measure to  the large quantity of ore there was  available on the dumps, ifc did not  -affect- this com pa ny-sa -proper ty-iu-  any appreciable   degree.    It   was,  however,    highly   satisfactory   to  know that the strike was ended,  'and he did not think it was likely  to be repeated for a very long time  to  come. , In  conclusion,  he must  express,  on  behalf of himself and  follow ditoctors, tho high appreciation which  their administration in  British Columbia deserved at their  hand".    The   Ymir   property   had  not been one fraught with no difficulties, but these had been overcome,  to a large exteufc, by the ability and  account of delays.    The cost of forwarding the  men, the horses and  their  outfits  from their points of  enlistment  to the. ports of departure, Quebec and Halifax, and their  maintenance   until    the    steamers  sailed   was   $91,250.       A  sum   of  $14,745 was paid out in allowances  to officers apd nurses for their outfits.    Clothing for the first contingent cost $20,744, and for the second  $86,077,  a  total  of $146,821.    For  arms   aud  ammunition there -was  spent on behalf of the first contingent the sum of. $54,294, and on behalf of the second contingent $461,-  SS7.60.        All   these    expenditures  make     a     total    of     $718,479.21;  and     the      remaining      $175,000  is the . estimated difference in six  months pay of the. Canadian and  Imperial soldiers.    It cost $25 each,  or $30,250, to carry 1210  horses  to  Halifax, $20,000 to take first contingent to  Quebec; $39,000  to ..transport the men of the second contingent   to Halifax, and   $50,000 to  move the artillery to Halifax.    The  sum of $25,000 was spent on  rifles,;  swords and scabbards for the  first  contingent and $18,050 for second.  The   field artillery of the second  contingent cost $200,000, the  Maxims $16,667,  while "the-Maxims  of  the first contingent were purchased  for $8333.    Revolvers for the  first  contingent were bought for  $775,  while for the second they cost $14,-  900.    Artillery ammunition  necessitated an expenditure  of $75,000.  The small ammunition for the first  contingent was bought for  $4015  and   the   second     for    $14,382.50.  Saddles     for     the     mounted   infantry     regiment,     required     an  of      $24,375.     For     the  contingent        the       sum  of $1600 was spent on axletrees aiid  for the second the outlay on this  article was $4240.    Many articles  such as blankets, tents, ammunition  boxes,    transport   wagons,    spare  wheels and axles, telescopes, rubber  sheets,    axes,   picks,    bags,    belts,  brushes,   water   bottles,   buckles,  blacking,   horse   collars,   lanterns,  mess tins, pitch forks,  etc.,  added  thousands upon  thousands to  the  expenditure.     The figures showing  what it cost Canada to  equip 2000  men are interesting in themselves,  and doubly so in giving an idea of  what outlay must be entailed in  forwarding   and keeping 'fed, and  supplied in every way an army of  200,000 men.  samples.from the vaiious  outcrop-  pingsis given.    These, range from  $30.10 to $9.54, and average about  $16.    Mr. Wakers  states  that  although the ore body has been broken  into at intervals throughout about  250 feet  in  width,  it is   believed  that the best ores are still ahead,  toward the hanging wall.  The gold  values' are also increasing as the  hanging wall is approached.  - The  exploration of the Mammoth Bluff  outcrop is said to show up  a  body  of ore fully as  large as  was expected.    So far  the investigations  have   been   confined to the   Jane  claim on account of the snow  on  the hills.    This, however, is rapidly  disappearing, and the company intends to at once begin the examination of the Clifton  and  Fairview  claims, which are higher up   the  mountain.  LABOR   PARAGRAPHS.  In the Transvaal the miner's  working, day, as fixed' by law, is  eight hours for six days in the  \yeek, while in the Kimberley mines,  in British territory, the miners/  who are contract laborers, are re- I  quired to work tAvelve hours a day,  seven days in the week.  . Senator Gear of Iowa has introduced an amendment to the post-  office appropriation bill fixing eight  hours as the length of a working  day for clerks iri postoffices in the  United States, and providing for  extra pay for additional hours.  The boss carpenters, contractors  and builders in Cincinnati, Ohio,  came to an agreement with the carpenters and joiners last week to  establish an eight-hour day, at  $2.40 on the 1st June. The present  rule is nine hours at $2.50 per day.  This is an increase'of five cents an  hour. This ends a struggle Avhich  began fifteen years ;.ago.  The ordinance of the eity of Seattle, which makes it unlawful for  any contractor or sub-con tractor  ufion any public work of the said  city to permit any day laborer to  Avork more than eight hours has  been declared to be unconstitutional by the supreme court.  After May 1st tho Bakers' Union  of Denver, Colorado, will hot alloAv  its members to work during the  night. The workmen have decided  that the natural conditiori is to  work during the day and sleep at  night, and this rule Avill be followed  in the future.  Celebration of the establishment  of an eight-hour Avorking day by  the coal miners brought about almost complete idleness'in the Pittsburg district ou Saturday of last  week.  Carpenters at Victor, Colorado,  are now getting $4 a day for eight  hours.  AMERICAN  AND  EUROPEAN  PLANS5  Wholesale  Houses  NELSON  B.C.

The members of Kootenay Lodgo
No. Mi, I. O. O. V., have decided to take their
annual 21th of May Kxcursion to Kaslo this year.
Tlio steamer International has been chartered to
take the excursionists, which will have a scow in
tow-for (lancing. The excursionists will be accompanied hv a band and orchestra.
John A. Turner writes a friend at
Nelson, from Liverpool on March 2Slh, that
he intended sailing the next day on the steamer
Dominion for Halifax. Heroic going to Liverpool
ho spent two days in Leeds, Hradford and Manchester, and snow fell most of the time while in
these three great manufacturing centers. Mr.
Turner expected to stay a week or ton days at
Stonewall. Manitoba, visiting his father, before
returning to Nelson.
The reports    of the  ton of ore
from the Venus sent to Southern California a''
couple of months ago were received'Saturday
night, and proved most satisfactory. Tiik Thi-
bvsh is informed that the company will get out'
plans for a mill towards the end of this month
and flguro on having the buildings complete and
in operation by July.
N. Bordeiui, the Ymir miner who
was badly hurt by falling down tho shaft at tho
mine, is getting along nicely at the hospital.
\it When first brought to the institution he suH'orcd
"' so terribly from the various fractured bones that
ho insisted on tearing the splints from his wrists.
Since then plaster casts were placed on his arms
and leg and tho bones are knitting nicely.
John MeLeod, the man  who died
at the hospital on Thursday was buried Saturday afternoon at the Union cemetery. Another
C. I\ It. steamer employee is confined to the hospital with typhoid, and his casa is regarded as
serious. It said that when the C, P. R. steamers
tie up at the docks here they use the lake water
for drinking purposes, a dangerous practice, as
the water in the neighborhood of the docks is
...     anything but healthful.
w       The steamer Red Star is tied up
Vi/ at the city dock undergoing alterations.    She is
??. to be used principally for delivering powder at
\§i lake points, and it is of course necossary to re-
.7. model the interior so that there will be, no dan-
\tl f»or of explosion.    Captain   Campbell is quite
-"7. proud Of his trim little craft.
Xvf       The offices of the mining recorder
\ti a,,(l "le elerk of the supremo court will be closed
.7. today.   The latter will not reopen until Thurs-
\§f daj-, the intervening period, being   the Easter
.7. vacation.  -S.
W The electrical fire alarm apparatus at the Are hall is now working satisfactorily.
?T' It is an attachment ™hoi cby the linging ot the
\§i telephone bell after I o'clock  a in. causes  the
.7. gong in the hallw ay at the new addition to sound
11/ vigorously.   The result is that the men aro in-
•7. btnntl} awakened, and should the telephone call
\§i prove to be an alarm mm} valuable minutes are
•_.. sa\cd.   Later it ii proposed to attach another
If/ continance to   the telephone by which every
• v. electric light in the building will be turned on
