 DAILY  EDITION   BY MAIL  FIVE  DOLLARS A YEAR  WEEKLY EDITION  BY MAiL  TWO DOLLARS A YEAR  EIGHTH YEAR  KELSON:  SATURDAY MORNING, APRIL 2L 1900.  PRICE FIVE CENTS  FIGHTING AT KAREE SIDING  Censorship is Strict.  , London, April 20.���A special dispatch from Bloemfontein dated  yesterday says firing is reported to  he in progress south of Karee siding, six miles 'north of Glen. Tho  strength of the Boers is not known.  Tho British infantry, supported hy  artillery, hold a strong position on  a large dam.  London, April 20.���The report of  tho lighting at Karee Siding, six  miles north of Glen, contained in  the special dispatches from Bloemfontein, may be the iirst news of  progress of the British advance on  Pretoria. But even were this only  an unimportant skirmish, there'are  many other indications that'lord  [���^Roberts is either starting or has already, started for the northern goal.  A dispatch from Cape Town under today's date says:  "The censorship restrictions have  been greatly increased, owing to  the.movements of the troop's'.". All  the dispatches bear traces of the  "strenuous efforts of the correspondents to give their papers an  inkling of what is afoot.  The Boers south of Bloemfontein  are reported to be retreating.  Large commands were seen April,  19th near Thabanchu moving to;  the north. The progress was slow,  owiug to the terrible condition of  the country.  .  By way of Pretoria comes a report that fever is decimating, the  Mafeking garrison, and a letter from  the mayor of Mafeking says lord  Roberts asked colonel Baden-Powell  to hold out until May 20th.  Cecil   Rhodes   returns   to   Capo  Town tomorrow, the announcement  of his  departure was  unexpected.  Never has a man  so  prominently  connected with the vital  questions  of the day paid such a quiet visit to  London.     It is   learned   that the  so-called  "empire-maker"  came  to  j England   purely  ou business  con-  hiected with the British  Chartered  I"South Africa Company and the De  "Beers Mining Company.     He has  I accomplished his objects and, hating  1 inaction and not wishing to meet  people1" or -free! y express  h is  views,  bias suddenly determined to return  [to   South   Africa,   where he   will  [wateh the interests of these two  {companies.  Mr. Rhodes has absolutely_ re-  Ifnsod to be interviewed, though  (privately he has expressed bcathing  [comments on several Of the geu-  Jertils still leading commands at the  ���front.  I .Lady Gatacie will be a feJlow  bassenger of Mr. Rhodes. She is  |?oing as far as Madeira to meet her  husband, the British' general who  has beeu sent back to England.  which almost equalled the prince of  Wales. All along the route similar  scenes occurred, the crowds round  Marlborough House being particularly large.  The spectators of the princess'  home going consisted of the well  dressed and respectable elements.  From their comments, ib was evident how genuine and heartfelt was  the gladness over the princess' return and escape from death. The  most common remark was ''How  well sho looks" from the women,  and "What a blessing she was not  killed." King Oscar's unexpected  appearance and democratically expressed enthusiasm created intense  delight, and made the ..monarch  quite the hero of the hour. ������..  LIBRARY IN NEW QUARTERS  Will be on Victoria Street.  The board of the Nelson' Public  Library Association   held   an important meeting yesterday afternoon, at which it was  decided to  remove the. library from the present premises which are altogether  too small for the large  number of  readers who. are daily to be found  there.    The special committee, consisting of R. R;'Hedley and II. Bird,  which have been appointed to look-  into the question of securing other  quarters, reported in  favor of engaging three  rooms, on 'the north  side   of   Victoria   street,   east   of  Stanley, iu the  building belonging  to H.   Selous.      This ��� report   "was  adopted and the   committee was  empowered to engage these rooms.  They face on Victoria street, and  doors will be put iu connecting the  three.     It was  thought th.at the  accommodation  thus  se'eured, will  be ample for present needs.  The committees in charge of the  arrangements for the forthcoming  ball iii aid of the free library, reported^ and thoir recommendations  were adopted.  Those present included the president, G. P. Beer, the secretary,  Mrs. McCuIloch, H. Bird, G. Kydd,  G. V.. Holt, R. R. Hedley, E. A.  Crease and mesdames H. Bird.jLang-  ford, Arthur," Lamont, J. R. Robertson and G. F. Beer.  BOERS LOST VERY HEAVILY  Fighting Near Wepener.  AmwaIi North, April 20.���Captain Little of Brabant's horse,  lieutenant Holbeckand Mr. Milner,  a Reuter correspondent, fell into  the hands of the enemy, while they  were trying" to'reach--Wepener a  week ago. Everything was taken  from the prisoners, who were sent  to Pretoria. '   ..  Their native servants, who escaped from the ., Boer . laager near  Wepener, say that there were four  guns disabled there and. that the,  Boers had lOst 100 in killed alone.  It is also ascertained that the Boers  made a night attack, on April 11th,  but were discovered while creeping-  along a deep ditch by the Cape  Mounted Rifles with maxims, who  fired into them at a distance of 200  yards, with the result that the  Boers lost five wagon loads.of killed and wounded. A simultaneous  attack in other quarters was repulsed by the British who used  tlieir bayonets. The Boers still  surround- Wepener, hut there has  been little firing lately.  Yourba country, in the neighborhood of the Dahomey frontier. Owing to the distance, however, this  can hardly be connected with the  troubles in Ashanti and Gaman.

F.: .Green  will issue  his election address in a few  days.  The board of trade will not endorse  'the'- ^resolution ��� of   bhe Vancouver  board in favor of the reduction of  the Yukon  royalty and the adoption of compulsory assaying.   They  feel that the people here would resent any interference from Yukon  with the laws that govern this pro:  viuce, aud they - do not want to  interfere with Yukon, especially as  they do not know enough about  the districb to warrant bhem in endorsing' the   memorial.     John   G.  Sullivan of Trail and A. E. Doucet  of Winnipeg, two C. P. R. engineers,  went up to the scene of the Lardo  railway operations  yesterday, accompanied by Gr. O. Buchanan, president of the Jboard of trade. While  here Mr/Sullivan was interviewed  and stated that he had been sent  to find out-the state 'of affairs'and  make a report. * On that report will  depend what the C. P. R. will do.  "If the O.

The   field   telegraph   ends  there. On Thursday the Boers  still had colonel Dalgetty closely  penned. '  ��� .The government's reasons for  publishing lord Roberts' Spion Kop  dispatches was explained last evening at Hull by Walter Hume-Long,  j>resident of the board of agriculture, who said that the' country  was entitled to receive all the information the government could  give."  "The government .-is told," said  Mr. Long, "bhat, having  published  jthe dispatches, it is bound to deal  immediately    with ' tiie.   generals  affected, but in  following such a  course, the government might have  bo    dismiss     every . general   the  moment he made a' mistake.     Had  such a policy been  pursued m  the  past,   many  most   glorious  deeds  would  nob   have been performed.  The government used its discretion  in publishing the dispatches.   From  the beginning of the campaign, her I  majesty'sministershavenotswerved J  from the rule of   leaving the conduct of the operations to the discretion and judgment of the commander in-chief.

London, April 21. -The J-*ady-  smith correspondent of the Standard says: "There is good reason  to believe that the Boer raids are  intended to cover the enemy's withdrawal from Natal, in order to help  the Boers in opposing the advance  of lord Roberts."

Constantinople, April 20.���The  firm attitude of the United States  government regarding tho claims of  Americans for losses during' the  massacres in Armenia is entirely  approved in political and commercial circle?, and it is hoped that  the United States will steadfastly  maintain its demand, such a course  being the only one likely to succeed.  It is thought that all the poAvers  should follow the same course, uot  only concerning indemnity, bub also wibh regard to any increase of  duty.  Negotiations regarding the  American indemuity are uowr being  conducted iu Washington, owing to  the presence of United States minister Strauss._ AYhen-the���prohibition against American pork was  issued, Mr. Lloyd C. Griscomb,  American charge d'affaires, addressed an energetic note to the  porte.  London, April 20.'--lb is intimated by diplomats familiar with  the situation that there are reasons  why the United States .should pro-  coed carefully in the matter of  forcing the payment by tho sultan  of Turkey of the claim for ��100,000.  There aie in the Philippines more  than ��5,500,000 Mohammedans  whoso devotion to their caiipha is  fanatical. The sultan would have  but to lift his finger and those  Malays and Moros would join forces  with tho Tagalos. The war in  Luzan would be extended throughout the islands and tho American  forces would necessarily havo to be  greatly increased.  Model Wholesale Warehouse.  J. Y. Griffin & Co., wholesale provision and produce merchants, are  now comfortably located in thoir  handsome new warehouse on Front  streeb. The building is unusually  well arranged for bhe business and  combines features which no other  business house in the Kootenays  possesses.  The warehouse is 45x100 in dimensions, has two stories, and is  attractively finished wibhin and  Avithout. Ou entering the front  streeb door. Roberb Roberbson,  manager of the firm, is found in his  private office to the .left, wibh the  clerks and-shippers close at hand.  To the righb is a space reserved for  goods inbended for immediate shipment.  The lower flat is equally divided  by a hallway from front to rear.  To the right are the apartments  devoted to the  handling of hams  and  bacons, Avhich  is  one  of  the  firm's specialties.     One is known  as the packing and Avashing room.  In this  apartment  the hams and  bacon are received in sweet pickle  and  stored.      When  required  the  meat  is  taken  from   the pickling  vats, thoroughly Avashed and passed  on  to  the smoking house, a brick  structure detached from the  rear  of   the   Avarehouse.      Tho   smokehouse has  the  capacity of half a  car   and   there  the  meat is  suspended in the smoke of a slow fire,  a peculiar species of Avood common  to the hills of the Kootenays being  used to generate the smoke Avhich  preserves and matures the flavor of  the ham. After this process the meat  goes to the cured meat room, Avhere  ib is carefully hung  uubil required  for   shipping.      By   having   bhese  facilibies ab hand the company ensures   to   the   trade    clean,   fresh  goods, particularly in the summer,  Avhen meats packed in the east aud  shipped here are liable to deterioration.  On the left hand side of the hall  the entire floor space* is devoted to  a cold storage room Avith a capacity  of 8 carloads of mixed produce.' Ib  is intended to handle cheese, butter  Jand eggs more extensiA'ely than  ever before, and the big refrigerator giA'es the firm exceptionally  good facilities. The icebox from  which chilled air is clraAvn contains  a tiifie of 300,000 pounds of ice,  and by au ingenious application of  a Avcli known natural law the air in  the chambers keeps circulating  through the icebox, thereby maintaining an even r temperature of 'J2  degiees no matter how torrid tbe  Aveather Avithout may be. -The firm  will bring produce from the Northwest aud other points in refi iger-  ator ears, Avhich run to the back  door of their warehouse, thus guaranteeing the preservation ��of the  freshness of their consignments.  The upper flat of the building is  utilized for storing such goods as  do not require refrigerating.  J. Y. Gnffiu & Co. is one of the  most reliable houses handling provisions in the west, and their trade  extends into eveiy districb and  tOAvn Avest of lake Superior. The  Nelson branch is doing much to  keep up Nelson's standing as a  wholesale center.  In this instance, however, there  AA'as no firing. NatiA-e deserbers  confirm previous statements Avith  respect to the fortifications aud  strength of   the Boers along   the  Biggarsberg range.

Hughes, manager of  the Idaho mine, Slocan districb, is  in Nelson. He says that the snow  in the high altitudes in the Slocan  seems to be as deep as in previous  years at this time, although tho  lower reaches Avere bare much earlier than in former year-s. Operations at the Idaho and other mines  in the Idaho basin cannot be carried  oa full force until the-snow goes off,  fts supplies have to be packed in by  men, and this can only be done in  the early morning Avhen the crust  is strong enough to hold a num'.s  weighb. M. Hughes has had men at  work on mines ab Paddy's Peak all  winter, and hopes that tho development work that is being dono  will prove the properties Avorth  something. Mr. Hughes is apt to  make a nice clean-up in the Slocan  some day. (  Must Organize This Time.  The Nelson baseball enthusiasts  are called upon to meet tonight at  8 o'clock in the hotel Hume to organize for the season or make such  arrangements as aviII start the ball  rolling.   A couple of meetings were  announced a week or two since, but  failed to  eventuate for lack of -attendance.

The United States goA'ernment  has decided to collect a 10 per cent  tax on Canadian notes circulating  in the cities along the boundary  line. Whatcom county, Washington, is principally affected, a large  amount of Canadian currency being  in circulation there. Some time  ago there was about a million in  Canadian money circulating in this  county, and as the tax is to be imposed every time tho money passes  through the banks, the revenue Avill  be large. The placing of Canadian  currency under tho head of taxable  notes is the result of an opinion of  the attorney-general, in which he  says: "A national bank paying out  on checks and otherwise notes of a  bank chartered in a foreign country  is subject to the tax of 10 per cent  upon the amount of tho notes so  circulated under paragraphs 19 and  20, Act of 1875." The Whatcom  banks may contest the matter or  may apply to congress for relief on  the grounds that no one has beon  injured by the use of the Canadian  currency in that secbion,' but that,  on the contrary, its circulation Avas  of great benefit to the community.

If the rattlesnake is justly called  the king of America's woods aud  rocks, yet his crown is not held  without danger, since lie is hunted  diligently, and successfully. => His  faugs are indeed deadly, and he  wears a fine suit of armor, but the  deer and the wild hog never fail to  attack him, and he has an enemy of  his own kind still more dangerous  to .him..  Snakes may be divided iuto three  classes. Those which are venomous, theconstrictors and those which  are neither. Unless the second of  these are wonderful for their size,  their secure little of- our attention,  and yet they are generally beautiful in colors, most graceful in action and often among our best  friends. In Florida we have two  constrictors especially noticeable���  the black racer, which grows to the  length of twelve feet and makes a  business of warring on rats and  other small deer the farmer hates;  and the king snake, whose mission  seems to be the extermination of  the rattler. '���...'  One day I was returning from a  day's ���hunt, at. peace with the world  and myself, when I heard a squirrel  scolding as if he were a ward politician the night before election.  The noise he made was so loud and  insistent that I turned out of my  "way to see what could be . the  matter. I found the little fellow  on the trunk of. a pine about ten  feet from the ground, jumping  -about as if in convulsions. He  would llouiish his tail wildly, scold  in anger, threaten an assault, run  back a little way up the trunk, and  then return>and scold again.  1 looked carefully and saw that  his anger was directed at a rattle-*  snake that-lay coiled at the foot of  the tree. The .snake was' compressed into ajball, from the middle  of which its'rattle sounded con-,  tiimously; its blazing little eyes  wore fixed unchangingly upou those  of the squirrel. Tho buzz,',buzz  'donod ou the summer air with a  "sleepy effect, but the squirrel  scolded in an ever-asoending key.  But for the hint of the squirrel's  eyes I could not have located the  rattler. His color and Ms variegated markings offered but little  contrast to his surroundings. His  monotone of noise was indefinite,  and to sight as well as iu sound he  'seemed only a blur on the background of the dark sand on which  he lay.  Was the squirrel only curious to  satisfy himself as to the character  of tliat strange object, or was he  hypnotized ? I have often amused  myself by exciting the violent  curiosity of"tllcTlittle" animal, but"  never did a waving or jumping object awaken'such intense and painful emotion as the rattler always  demands. I knew what lliust soon  follow; that the squirrel's-erica  would' grow weak, that he would  grow dizzy and finally tumble from  the tree,  hang a  moment  by  ono  claw and then drop into the jaws of  the living death that lay in wait.  I hod raised my rifle to save the  little fellow, when the tragedy was  interrupted from another quarter.  Swift as light, a form raced on  the stage. It was clothed in a  gleaming coat of beautiful white  and black spots; it shifted and  shone like a necklace of precious  stones, and I knew the king snake  claimed a victim. The newcomer  Avas smaller than the rattler; its  ground color was a greenish gray,  and the spots scintillated in the  sunlight which shifted down upon  the scene from the tangled branches  overhead.  At the first rustle of its approach  the rattler lost all  interest in the  squirrel,  which ran  back into the  tree.    The king snake held his head  high and raced around the  rattler  in a wide circle, while the rattler  tried   to   slink away.     The   king  darted forward as if to attack, and-  the   rattler threw himself into a  coil.   The king was again away and  racing around, with a swiftness the  "rattler   seemed   unable   to   follow  with   his   eye.     The   rattler was  cowed already; his crest was low-,  ered, his buzz, buzz was jerky and  uneven, and altogether he presented  a very different appearance  from  the   self-confident   arbiter  of   the:  woods which he had seemed  when  I first saw him.   I could think of  'nothing but some human bully suir  prised in  the act  of torturing his  helpless victim, and suddenly compelled'to face an adversary worthy  of his strength.    The  king snake  seemed to enjoy the situation  as a  cat does her cruel dallying with a  mouse.  Round and round went the king  snake, and the rattler followed the  movement till it neck was twisted.  Whenever it attempted to' turn the  king would spring forward, and it  was evident that the first failure of  the rattler in swiftness would be  the signal for muscle to close with  venom.- The king would race from  left Lo right and then reverse, and  if the rattler failed to follow that  would be tho end of him. This  happened, and I saw the king in  the air, but could not catch the  strike, so instantaneous was it.  There was a confusion of flying  pine needles in a cloud of white  dust, and I saw that two inches of  the king's coil was about the throat  of the rattler. Over and overtliev  went, the king*s head above that of  his enemy, and a curve of his body  acting as a buffer to keep up the  motion which enabled him to take  another turn and still another.  And so tiie struggle continued, till  the rattler did not writhe freely,  and he i\ as held as a - vine  wraps     a     tree. When     he  lay still the king snake  began to uncoil himself slowly, and  at every motion of the enemy the  constrictor's folds contracted and  crushed with killing effect. Even  wheu there wa.s only a quiver of  the tail, the king still gripped the  throat. It was plain that he had a  wholejaoino respect for tho^ fangs_  TnaTTwore-still terrible. As a last  precaution the king applied his  nostrils delicately to those of the  i attler, and repeated that several  times, as if to detect the faintest  breath. Satisfied at last, it released  its enemy, but still watched ready  to re&ume its hold at the slightest  sign of life.  Imperial Banlc of Canada  JIKAl)   OFFICE, TORONTO.

As I turned away,  the voice of the squirrel in tho tree  broke out again, saucy and defiant  as it always is, but no longer filled  with agony and terror, as at first.  Gold in a Forbidden Land.  The French Colonists in French  Guiana have been making more  trouble for Brazil over the large  territory that both countries claim.  The dispute arose many years ago  and'is not settled-yet, and as both  nations despaired of reaching an.  understanding they referred the  matter to arbitration. Meanwhile,  both agreed to keep out of the disputed territory, and this agreement  is the basis of Brazil's -new grievance against the colonists.  "  A while ago gold was discovered  in the disputed land and development gave-more promise of agreat  mining future than anything yett  found in French Guiana.     So the  colonists began to flock over into  the forbidden Jand, and they have  dug there for gold with so much  success that a good deal more than  half the  precious, metal exported  from French Guiana last year came  from the new mines,  which Brazil?  claims to be in her,territory. Brazil;  has protested against the; invasion, ���  but the minerssay they will remain.  Their success is,giving considerable  prosperity to -Cayenne,; where-the  del vers go to spend ;their' gold dust  after they haye acquired it.  It is hoped that;: arbitration ���will  soon settle the matter; The country which both countries- claim > is  100,000 square miles in extent; and  the miserable disputeVis ail due to  the fact that; nobody understands  the treaty of Utrecht, which declared iu 1714: that the Yapok or Vim  cent Pinzon river was the boundary  between the Portuguese and French  possessions. The long discussed,  but never answered question is ;  " Where the dickens is the Yapok'  river?" Brazil identifies it with  the Oyapok river, which is generally recognized, on the maps at least,  as the southern boundary of French  Guiana. ' France on the other hand,  says that the Yapok river of the  treaty of Utrecht is identical with  the Araguari, river, which is far  south and only a short distance  from the Amazon. Thus the whole  country between these two rivers is  in dispute, and, as the meaning of  the Utrecht treaty will never be  ascertained, the only solution-likely  to be reached will be to divide tho  disputed territory between the two  countries.  same-line-recently, and there are  frequent similar occurrences, as  where a $1 dog puppy ate up two-  thirds of a $5 note. 'The pup. was  of a-playful disposition,' wrote the  man who owned it, 'and, though  I saw him playing with the  note, I did not recognize it as  money. But he won't play any  more iu my back yard. Later on,  when the .puppy got tired, playing  with it, the owner discovered that  the dog had been amusing himself  with a note which had by accident  fallen on the floor. The affidavits  in the case were Arery amusing, but  the man got his remnant of a note  redeemed at its full value. The lamp  and gas flighting people are by great  odds in the majority. Out of a number of such cases the percentage of  women sufferers is so small that it  can almost be said they don't lose  money by using it as lighters.

" While it cannot be stated that  ifc is an American habit lo light  lamps and  gas with money," explained, an official of the redemption division of the  treasury department  to   a  Washington Star  reporter, " there are a number who  appear actually to have money to  burn, and who now and then burn  it.   There are more money burners,  too, than-come" to-the~~front and  demand a redemption of their partly    destroyed    money,   for   some  people - hesitate   before   they   are  willing to appear in such an indefensible position.   I don't want to  be understood   as  stating that it  occurs     every     day,      for     that  would   probably     be     stretching  ifc   somewhat,   but    it  is   a  fact  that it   occurs many more times  than would bo- supposed.   A case  of the kind came-to the division  last week, where a fellow lighted a  match at; the door to his room and  from- that lighted   what; he supposed was a piece of paper which  he had in his pocket.   lie started  with the lighted paper to find the  gas jet.

In his communication to  the secretary of the treasury, to  to whom he was advised to write,  he admitted that he was a fool and  deserved a kick instead of anything  else, but said as grass was rather  short with him he would have to  appeal   for   redemption.     He furnished    the     necessary   affidavits  which under the law have to be filed  in such cases and a new bill was  sent   to him for the  half-burned  notes which he sent in for redemption.     Lots  of times people burn  money but make no claim  for  redemption,    supposing    that    they  have no redress in the matter.   But  the treasury department does  not  as a rule hunt up trouble,<so unless  the claim is made none is suggested.  "I had a case somewhat in tho  Porto Rico LumberGo. Ltd.

Rizw York, April 20.���Two  masked robbers fought a duel with  Charles Mann, watchman of the  late Theodore Ilavemeyer's hunting  lodge near Mali wall, New Jersey,  early this morning. After shooting  down the man they gagged him,  then broke into the house and ransacked it, taking two sacks of guns  and valuables. On leaving they  forced the wounded man to accompany them. He was dragged for a  mile through the woods. The robbers finally bound him to a tree. He  was found after daylight almost  dead from loss of blood and exhaustion.  ��� j  AMERICAN  AND  EUROPEAN  PLANS  MEALS  25  Wholesale  Houses  NELSON  B.C.
