 DAILY EDITION   BY MAIL  FIVE  DOLLARS A YEAR  i^f ���I'l^  WEEKLY EDITION BY MAIL  TWO  DOLLARS A YEAR  EIGHTH YEAR.  NELSON:   SATURDAY M0KKTE5TG, MAY 5 J 900.  PRICE FIVE CENTS  SANDON WIPED OUT BY FIRE  Half a Million Damages.  Among tlio two or three Nelson-  it es -who Avithesscd tlio destruction  ofSandon was J. C. Blandy, of the  <\ P. R. engineering department.  1 ly a curious twist of fortune Mr.  Blandy happened to be in Kaslo  a lid Kuskonook Avhen those towns  wero devastated by fire. He describes the Sandon conflagration as  far surpassing both, so far as the  extent of the damage and the ferocity of the flames is concerned.  In   referring   to   the    fire,    Mr.  Blandy said : "At  12:30  the alarm  ,l>oll sounded, and  the  department  turned   out  promptly.    Tho   blaze  was located  in the Spencer block  ,iust across tho road from  the fires'    hall.    A   theatrical   company presenting "A Better Atonement" had  occupied the block on the previous  -������vening, and it is supposed that a  ligarette   stub    caused    the    fire,  "\\ Inch began in the basement.    The  biigade had a spleudid pressure for  tlieir hose, and my impression Avas  t uit  the   firemen   were unusually  well   handled,   for   by the  time I  reached   the spot,  a few  minutes  afcer   the    alarm    sounded,   they  seemed  to  have water  playing ou  the fire from every direction.    The  building was of wood, dry as  tinder, and the  fiie had gained such  headway     that    it     could     not  bo controlled.    A light breeze blew  in a westerly direction and  carried  the flames down hill while tho natural  tendency of the ground was  sufficient to draw the fire  up  hill.  The block    was    solid    wood,  the  buildings being  packed  as  closely  together  as  possible,  so  that  the  flames spread quickly.     The  main  <-treet is only 30 feet wide and the  fiie soon .iumped across.    The  fire-  hall was the first building attacked  ���on the opposite side  of the  street  and from there  tho  fire  spread in  both directions.  '���The firemen finally resorted to  tho desperate expedient of dynamiting burning buildings in-order  t o enable them to play on the adjoining^ buildings.. _ Foui\times bags  * filled with clyuamite'Avere thrown  . into the fire and exploded with tremendous force. The expedient did  Lot prove a success, however, for  tii soon as ono building was levelled  1 he next blazed out furiously despite the floods of water." The fire  seemed to blazo np just as fiercely  oven when tho water wa-. playing  ditectly on, the spot.  '���The Eeco hotel A\as the last  building to burn. Twenty yards  bi'youd it, and intervening between  the business and the upper district,  ,was the O. P. Vi. depot. A heavy (  c'largoof dynamite was placed  under the passenger depot, after  the agent had loaded a couple of  cms with his belongings and backed  1 hem down the track through the  iLimes from the hotel. When the  charge was touched off the depot  went into the air and au effective  Rap was made round wliich the fire  did not succeed in passing. Tho  -C. P.-B-freightshed-and three ears  of freight wore wiped out.  The fire stopped afc Lane's stable  ju-it at 3:30 o'clock. Tho whole  pei foi'iuauce lasted but two hours,  but it was a costly affair.  "Meantime tho flames had spread  up the hill to a terrace on which  .si >od a fine row of residences.  These wero absolutely wiped out  and the fire ran up tho .slope for  half a mile.  -The destruction of the business  district was mos't complete. The  only stores remaining are tho Byers  and Gigerieh establishments, loci ted above the 0. P. It. depot.  One hotel only is standing and it  h id to food everybody iu town  y-slorday morning. The Bank of  Jji-itish Columbia's branch shared  the general fate and^ the skating  rink also .succumbed. A quantity  of goods were stored in the big  .stone cellar undor Atherton's store  and these ,escaped destruction  though considerably damaged by  water^ Every other * store and  business establishment is a heap of  ruins.  ���"It will doubt!3ss be a matter of  several days before the loss can bo  climated with any degree of accuracy. I should f,ay, however,  i lufc a conservative estimate of the  -damage would place the loss at not  Ic.-s> than half a million. When the  fiie broke out ifc was thought the  leave this morning for Sandon to  look after the company's interests  there.  Alderman Blake Wilson and Ii.  C. Riblet of Nelson were in Sandon  yesterday morning when the fire  broke out, Thoy were staying at  the Reco house, and wero roused by  tho alarm. When the blaze broke  through the roof of the Spencer  block Mr. Itiblet suggested that it  would be politic to got out. Accordingly they packed their grips  up the gulch and came back to  natch the progress of the fire.  Chief Sewell of the fire  brigade  and  mayor Pitts headed the   fire  fighters.    After the hose was  de-  stioyed     bucket     brigades     -were  formed to complete the conquest of  tho  flames.    It  is conceded  on  all  sides that the upper portion of the  town would undoubtedly have gone  up in flames had it not been for the  dynamiting  of the C. P. Si.  depot.  Tho  charge   of   powder used was  sufficient to  remove  every vestige  of the building, and the  blaze was  thus checked for want of material.  At   7   o'clock   in   the    morning  mayor   Pitts  called   a  meeting of  citizens and committees were formed to organize relief, extinguish the^  glowing embers and obtain protection   for   homeless   citizens.     The  members  of tho  committees were  piovided with tin  badges and immediately set to work.     The Denver House, which was the  only  remaining hotel, wasvseeured, a quantity of provisions put in stock and  a staff of cooks aud waiters put in  charge.    Half the town had-break-  fast there.  Messages were sent to Nelson and  Kaslo asking for tejnts in which to  house citizens. A-uumber of tents  were shipiiod from here yesterday  by H. Byers & Co. and Theo. Madson.  In the-evening prior to the general conflagration P. Burns & Co's.  slaughterhouse was burned to the  ground, and in the big "blaze the  firm lost two buildings. The company's total loss is placed at $6000,  with no insurance.  So'far as can bo learned the insurance carried try owners of buildings was comparatively small. In  a number of instances "large" blocks  which were completely destroyed  were not protected by a ^cent of  insurance.  Jlis a source of deep gratification that no lives Avere^lost in the  fire. Up to the present time no  fatalities have been reported. '  IMPORTANT POINT GAINED  IN AID OF THOSE BURNT OUT  fire brigade would be able to cope  ���v. jfch it, and whan the citizens realized that the town was iu jeopardy  it was too late to accomplish anything in tho direction of saving  ili eh* belongings."  Superintendent Troup and trainmaster Hamilton  of   the V. P. R.  Sandon lire Relief Fund.  The terrible fire at Sandon  has  excited widespread sympathy in  Nelson, and steps are being taken  to raise money for the relief of the  sufferers. As a move in this direction the Nelson, Amateur Operatic  Society has decided to give another performance of, Pinafore on  Monday evening in aid of those  who lost by the fire. So,thatas  large an a mount as possible may be  netted, the management of the  operarhouse-will-give "the- use of  their theatre, the performers, of  course, will charge nothing for  their services,, the orchestra will  play for a nominal consideration,  and all printing, advertising, etc.,  will be done gratis by tho local  printing offices.  Apart from the objects of the entertainment, all those who saw Pinafore played before were agreed  that it was well worth seeing again,  while those who missed it now have  an opportunity of retrieving their  hard luck and seeing tho best amateur performance over given in the  Kootenays. It is a first-class show  and for the worthiest of all  possible objeets,and should result in  the addition of a most substantial  sum to the relief fund. The good  heartedness of the Nelson people is  never appealed to in vain.  There is talk also of starting a  regular relief fund and Grange V.  Holt, manager of the Bank of  British Columbia, informs The  Tribune that he will be pleased to  receive contributions from citizens  toward the relief of residents of  Sandon who arc homeless and comparatively destitute through the  fire, which destroyed most of the  town yesterday morning.  Tho Bank of Montreal of Nelsou  was the fit sfc to head a subscription  list to aid the people of Sandon.  Manager Buchanan started the list  with $50.  Tho C. P. It. has volunteered to  forward al' contributions to the relief fund freo of charge provided  that such consignments are addressed to mayor Pitts or tho chairman of the relief eominitteo at Sandon.  Occupation of Brandfort.  London, May 4.���Lord Roberts  reports to tho war oflice as follows :  "Biiandkokt, May 3.���Occupied  Brandfort without much opposition and without, I hope, many  .casualties. The first brigade of  mounted infantry covered the left  flank of the fourteenth brigade of  the seventh division, aud tho right  flank was supported by the fifteenth  brigade. Pole-Carow's division advanced advanced directly on Brandfort.  '���The Boer army, which was under command of Delarey, retired in  a northeasterlyjdirection."  News of the occupation of Brandfort was published in the war office  at-10 o'clock this forenoon, confirming a dispatch previously received  by   the   Associated  Press.     It   is  generally considered the most important    communication    received  from the front since the capture of  general   Cronje and   the  relief of  Ladysmith.   The key to one of the  main roads leading to the Drakens-  berg passes, which possibly may be  tho   moans   of   co-operating   with  general    Buller    later    ou,    provides an advance base of supply,  and   at the   same   time   menaces  the Boers now surrounding Bloemfontein.    It is obviously the reason  for the importance attached by all  hands of the intelligence.  The Boer army at Brandfort was  commanded by general Delarey.   It  is presumably retiring on Winburg.  Brandfort,   35   miles    nearer    the  Transvaal camp,  is  now lord Roberts' headquarters.    What particularly gratifies the British public is  the evidence that the army of lord  Roberts in the Orange Free State  -has recovered its mobility and is  again capable of undertaking the  general advance, so long  retarded.  It is hardly expected the Boers  will make much of a stand south of  Kroonstadt, and possibly not there  if lord Roberts succeeds in capturing Winbuig, thus interposing between ,the main federal army and  the Boer forces in the neighborhood of Thaba Nehu and Hout Nek.  Iu this ease the latter would be  forced to move far to the eastward  and their mobility would probably  enable them to reach the Bethlehem  and Ilarrismith line in safety.   The  only opposition which the British  encountered at Brandfort seems to  have come from the Irish-American  command.,. ' _.  The central British army is now  in line with the extreme left at  Boshof under lord Methuen, and the  extreme light at Elandslaagte,  under general Buller, so that the  moving of these wings in co-operation with the main army, may  Shortly be expected.  Stopped   an   American   Ship.  London, May S.���It has beeu  learned by a representative of the  Avho is seeking 'release from the  state prison at- Stillwater on the  ground that Iron trial for murder by  a military court Was unlawful because, as an ^American citizen, he  was entitled to a tlial by jury.  WHY THEY WERE PUBLISHED  BULLER AND LORD ROBERTS  Correspondence Produced.  London, May 4.���-The telegraphic  cor  Associated Pres^thaUUnited States  Embassador Choate has asked lord  Salisbury for explanations as to  alleged abuse of international rights  in the case of the American ship  Sea Witch, which, according to the  statement of her commander, captain Howe, was boarded by the  British warship Wasp within  the three-mile limit of the Portuguese territory in East Africa.  Tho American ship Sea Witch left  Wallaroo December (ith and ai-  rived at Delagoa Bay February  12th. She sailed March 4th for  Port Natal (Durban) and arrived  there March Oth. The American  ambassador's communication to the  premier hardly amounts to a protest, and serious complications" are  not    likely     to      ensue. The  case, as transmitted by, secretary Hay to London, consists,  of tho captain's allegation that  while the Sea Witch was off Delagoa bay he signalled to the Wasp,  which was patrolling, and the Wasp  sent a boat to her. The captain of  the Sea Witch complains that the  visit resembled a warlike boarding  party, and that his manifest was  examined against his will when  palpably within neutral waters.  Porto Ricans Are Americans.  St. Paul, Minnesota, May 4.���  United States district judge Loch-  reu, in this country, has decided  that tho ratification of the treaty  of peace between the United States  and Spain made Porto Rico American territory and subject  to the consolidation with  the United States without  any    further   act    of     congress.  respondencu relating to the Spion  Kop dispatch'was issued to parliament just bef >ro midnight Thursday. Lord ('*insdowne, secretary  of state for a r, wired March 28th,  asking the ad'_ ice ,pf lord Roberts  about publishing' the dispatch,  saying: .  "We can no^publishallthe documents enclosed, with your dispatch  of February lgth," and suggesting  certain dispatches which in lord  ���Lansdowne's opinion might be published.     ,  Lord Lansdowue added:    '"But I  would   not feel  justified in   thus  editing the papers unless -you concur, and you may perhaps think ifc  well to refer to Buller.     I  suggest,  as an alternative, that we should  treat  your   dispatch  of February  13th and all its enclosures as confidential,   and   that Buller  should  send through you a full narrative of  the operations.    This you could forward to me with any observations  you desire to make for publication.''  Lord   Roberts   replied    to   loid  Lansdowne     in .a dispatch   dated  Bloemfontein, "March    31,  that he  had suggested to sir Redvers Buller  to prepare a full narrative, but sir  Redvers had answered as follows:  "I do not at all like the idea of  rewriting a dispatch for publication. I must prefer' to leave it in  the hands of the commander-in-  chief. Let him select for publication whatever he thinks proper."  To this lord Roberts appended  that he would nofc himself object  to publication of a'paper edited, as  lord Lansdowue had suggested, by  lord Lansdowne. -He asked lord  Lansdowne to wire a reply.  This reply fiom lord Lansdowne,  dated April 2,^ saic1^ '"In ;view of  Buller,s"'objeetioD~, *I abandon the.  proposal that the dispatch should  be re-written and I propose to publish the selection described in ray  dispatch of March 28."  Lord Roberts answered under  date of April 0th: "I agree to my  dispatch of February , 13 th being  published.*"  The correspondence also contains  two dispatches referred to in lord  Lansdowne's- dispatch of March  28th. The first is from lord Lansdowue to general Buller, dated  January 3rd, representing the impossibility of publishing his dispatches which "contain views of  the situation and forecasts of his  intentions," aud empliasizing the  advisability of sending dispatches  descriptive of the operations for  presentation to parliament. The  second is from lord - Wolseley to  lord Roberts, dated February Oth,  saying: _   '"You will, rfeel sure, agree with  me that Methuen's dispatch regarding Magersfontein could nofc be  published as sent. There are passages in ifc inappropriate to such  documents, and it also gives information of importance to the enemy.  If he likes 1 will revise the dispatch, but I prefer not to undertake this responsibility. I suggest  that you should ask him to cancel  this* dispatch and to write another."  The correspondence does not indicate whether loid Methuen rewrote the dispatch as suggested.  The Spion Kop dispatches published were the selections suggested in lord Lansdowne's dispatch of March 28th.  Spion Kop Dispatches.  London, May 4.���In the house of  commons today a variety of war  questions were asked. The parliamentary secretary of the war office,  George Wyndham, said no further  report had been received from lord  Roberts with reference to the  Koornspruit disaster.  The goA'ernment leader in the  house, A. J. Balfour, replying to  questions regarding the report of  the ill-treatment of British prisoners at Pretoria, said her majesty's  government was considering the  advisability of further representations on the subject through Washington aud through the United  States consul at Pretoria, Mr. Hay,  who has charge of British interests  in the Transvaal.  Continuing,  Mr.  Wyndham said  he   was   i^repared to   discuss   the  question of the  judgment  and discretion,  but  not of the  honor or  rectitude of  the  Marquis of Lansdowue.      Many misconceptions  in  regard   to  the  despatches had already, evaporated, including the belief that lord Roberts and general  Buller had criticized  general Methuen's operations, aud the criticisms  that they had been suppressed, as  supposed, by favoritism had beeu  eliminated.       The   only   point  at  issue was why the criticism of geueral Buller had  been  published if  tho goA'ernment intended to leave  him incommaud. Mr. Wyndham contended it was impossible to isolate  the Spion Kopdiselosuics and treat  them as no  other dispatches had  been treated in tho history  of the  last hundred years.   The Avar office,  he asserted, had  acted  entirely iu  accordance Avith the queen's  regulations.    Tt  Avas  said  the publication would shake the confidence -of  the troops in Natal in their com-  mauderv but   Mr.  Wyndham  said  that Avas nofc the view of  the government, nor the - view of general  Bulleiv.who wis.in the best, position to decide.  Afc this point John Dillon, Irish  Nationalist member for Kast Mayo,  interrupted saying he had never asserted that he wanted the dispatches published. *��� ���  .Mr. Wyndham continued: ."But  the gallant general has been applauded for saying he > would stick  to Avhat he had written, and would  havo made a great sIioav of candor  if he thought no one Avould know  what he had written."  This remark Avas greeted with  cries of "Oh, Oh." Mr. Wyndham  then said ho thought general Buller  had merely been unlucky, and that  general' Warren's services should  nofc be overlooked, adding that  Avhile in publishing the  dispatches, I  ,���_-__.  band   of  Mine.   Mnrio   Celli,   the  famous teacher of singing and former prima donna, who died April  10. After her death the count locked  himself in the room with his  dead  Avife and refused to allow the body  to be removed.   Afc length his iu'ti-,  mate   friends   had   to    use   force.  Later  he  was  removed to the insane   asylum   on    Ward's   Island,  where he made several attempts to  tako his own life.   He refused food,  and last night his dead body Avas  brought   back   to    the   city    for  burial.  BUSINESS CONTINUES GOOD  Boers Trekking North.  Thaba Nchu, May 8.���The Boers  haAre eA'acuated Thaba Nchu hill.  They are believed to be still trekking, though one gun has shelled the  camp indiscriminately.     Scouts report that some of the Boers retired  towards  Wepener.     They believe  the Boers evacuated the position  during the night,  trekking to the  northward in three directions. General Rundle is in command here.  It  ia expeeted that general Brabant  Avill effect a junction at any moment.  THE JUNIOR LACROSSE CLUB  Enthusiastic Meeting.

Individually     they    disclaim     all  knoAvledge   of   the  dirty  piece  of  political  trickery,  but the   odium  ^must attach lo the  association, for  it Avas the secretary of tho association av]io  procured the names  of  those 'who ha\-e  been objected to  from the  office of the collector of  votes.    Ifc is also a noteAVorthy fact  that the name of no man whose  application Avas made out  by the  syndicate of JaAvyers who control  the association was objected to.    A  large number of those  objected to  are staunch Conservatives and have  always helped  tho party by their  votes and  influence; but they  say  th�� party must purge itself of tli��  gang that uoav controls the organization iu Nelson before they Avill  again actively assisting in electing  any member of the local Conservative association to any. ollice.  What makes these-men the more  emphatic in their denunciations is  the fact that no single member of  the association has either openly or  publicly denounced the dirty Avork  or repudiated those avIio were actively connected with it. These  men are Avorse than the three men  Avho attached their names to the  papers prepared by the syndicate  of Conservative lawyers, for the  three men are mere instruments in  the hands of men Avho are suj^poscd  to be respectable and above reproach. The steps that have been  taken will, Avithout doubt, prevent  the consummation of the hope of  these political schemers, Avho haA-e  not yet been able to make either a  fair or a Avinning fight in Nelson.

An extra-ordinary geueral meeting of the shareholders of the Hall  Miues, Limited, was held at Winchester House, E. C, on Thursday,  for-the purpose of considering, and,  if thought fib, passing resolutions  for the reconstruction of the company. Mr. Robert Ward presided.  The secretary (Mr. A. E. Ashley)  lead the notice convening the  meeting.  The chairman said : Gentlemen,���  You will remember that on the 10th  of last   month    an   extraordinary  general  meeting  of the   company  was held, when a new board of directors was appointed, and charged  with the specific function of drawing up a scheme of reconstruction  to present to you for your consideration.     The labors   of the   board  since that date have been -.continuous, and today's meeting has been  called at the earliest possible moment, so that no time whatever has  been lost in endeavoring to give effect to your, wishes.'   The scheme���  the--particulars of which you will  Ho doubt have read in the circular  accompanying the notice convening  this meeting���is briefly as follows :  That the capital of the reconstructed  company���the new company���  shall be ��325,000, of which 250,000 -  oidiuary shares are to be given in  exchange    for    250,000     ordinary  shares held by shareholders in the^  existing company, credited with 15s'  paid   ti])  thereon;  25,000'ordinary  -"'hares" to be allotted  as fully paid  tn the holders of 25,000 preference  -hares in the present company, aud  .")'J,000 ordinary shares to be placed  t o reserve to satisfy the debenture  holders' right of conversion.  At the last meeting it was hinted  in the course Of the discussion that  the board would probably have'two  st lings to-its bow. Now, in connection with the - reconstruction  scheme, the directors wero most  anxious, in the interests of every  individual shareholder, both large  and small, to^give the closest attention to any .proposal that "might  come before them, -but I hardly  ' think it would bo desirable for me  l.) speak of the details of a counter  proposal .which was made to your  board, and subsequently withdrawn. However, X may tell you  {.hat the proposition which we place  .before you today with a view to rc-  fonsti'iiction has this distinct advantage���every shareholder iu the  Is''now prepared to issue Drafts and  Letters of Credit on Skaguay, U. S.,  Atlin, B. C, and Dawson City, N. W. T.  man's speech to which ho wished to  refer���namely, that dealing with  the counter proposal to the directors' scheme. Although that proposition was deemed not worthy of  acceptance by the board, it proved,  to his mind, that the company  possessed a valuable property when  mining men from the other side  were willing to put up from ��75,-  000 to ��SO,000 to work the undertaking, notwithstanding the fact  that thoy wanted to be paid interest for their money, and to have it  back again before the shareholders  participated in any profits. Such  evidence, he considered, justified  the shareholders in contributing 5s  per share to work the property.  Mr. P. Schweder said that as the  value of the scheme largely depended upon the Avay in which it was  carried out, he wished to, know if  the chairman could give him any  information as to the constitution  of the new board.  The chairman replied that he did  not thiuk he could entirely satisfy  the  last speaker.    Of course, they  were  quite aware that the future  direction of the company depended-  very largely  upon  the gentlemen  who constituted the board of directors, and   the  shareholders  might  rest assured that very great care  would  be taken in their selection.  Mr. Robert Harye5r,J who had been  long connected with the Hall Mines,  .had-consented  to join the  board,;  aud also Mr. Boulnois, a gentleman  of great experience.    He (the chairman) had been invited to join the  directorate, but up to the present  time he had given no definite reply.  He  was hot particularly keen in  complying with that invitation, but  he was assured  by his colleagues  that he would be of great assistance  to them On'account of his long connection with British/' Columbia and*  his  previous  connection  with  the  company, and he would give his reply in .the course of the next few,  days.    The board of the new company would be limited to live members, so that they would always  have a good working majority in  the city."  The     resolutions   were    carried  unanimously.

LAY, Maunder.  which, it is estimated, will cost $S,-  500,000, and the Herrera steamship  line, $1,500,000.  They will give a strong system of  roads over the whole island oxcept  that none run into Havana.    The  owners of the United railroad of  Havana, and the Regia Stores have  asked $15,000,000 for the two lines.  Tho  company   plans   to   get   into  Havana by building from Matanzas.  Full permission to make this improvement aud any other improve-,  ments necessary has been secured  from  senator Root.    In fact, it is  said   that    the   proposals    of   sir  Willian Van Home met with such  ready    encouragement   from    the  secretary of war that he found his  new company would ��� have greater  liabilities than lie had counted on.  As soon as the present lines are  workiug the company will make extensions   into   all    the   provinces  where agricultural or mineral developments-   are   promised.     The  Herrera line, of vessels, which has  also been secured, has a monopoly  of the northern coast trade;   Backers of the new syndicate are also interested, it is said, in the purchase  of the street railroads of Havana.  VAN   HORNE'S   SCHEME.  existing company will have the opportunity at an expenditure of 5s  _ pt-r sharcof rctainiug_aii iutere&t in  ti large property which we all hope  and believe is capable of producing  \ cry good results. The other proposition had this distinction���it proposed to absolutely acquire the in-  1 crests of all the shareholders of  this company, or in other words to  lake the juice of the orange and  give the peel to the shareholders.  We did not consider that scheme  Mould be acceptable to the shareholders, and I may say that ic was  Mibsoqueutly withdrawn by the  proposers on account of tho illness  ( f one of the gentlemen connected  with it.  Should the resolutions bo passed  loday for reconstruction, the company will be in a position to acquire  sufficient funds to pay off its liabilities, and we estimate that it will  have have, in addition, a working  < tipital of from ��40.000 to ��45,000  sterling to proceed with the work  of developing this great property  which has been so often urged by  experts employed by this company  stud by meu entitled to speak upon  the matter, for whose opinions not  o'lly tho late board, but; some of the  largest shareholders have the highest regard. After the resolutions  Ji ive been proposed and seconded S  s'mll ask the solicitor to explain the  a ?reement wliich Jias been drawn  i p between the Hall Mines, Limited,  and its liquidator, and ��� the new  company���which we propose to  name the Hall Mining aud Smelting  Company, Limited���indicating thab  the company has iu view very important operations in connection  with smelting in addition to-mining.  Mr. George Freeman, in seconding the resolutions, said that there  was only one point in the chair-  Sir William Van Home's great;  Cuban railway project has now  been fairly launched; and the official information which is now forthcoming shows that the earlier reports in no way exaggerated its  magnitude and importance. The  chairman of the Canadian Pacific  railway is at the head of the new  company, which has'been incorporated at Trenton. New Jersey. The  scope of its operations will embrace  practically the whole of the transportation work of the island.  r-Yom tho nucleus furnished by the  present line a complete network of  railways will be formed, which will  connect all towns of importance in  Cuba, aud affiliated with the rail-  _way _ will-be _ a line _of -steamships  which will run between Cuba and  the principal ports of the United  States.  Tho company is capitalized at a  nominal capital of $8,000,000, but  the actual amount which will shortly be forthcoming for this gigantic  undertaking will be many times that  amount. The organizing and controlling spirit of the enterprise is  sir William Van Home, and associated with him are several officers  of the Metropolitan street railway  of Now York,and several American  millionaire financiers.  Since his return from Cuba, less  than three months ago, sir William  has been a familiar figure in New  York and Washington. lie has  been in.consultation with senator  Root of the United States government, with regard to the concessions, and it is said that ample protection has been assured to the  capitalists by the federal authorities. This is a complete list of the  incorporators, of the new company:  sir William Van Home, Levi P.  Morton, John W. Maekay, James J.  Hill, general Samuel Thomas, W. C.  Whitney, Thomas F. Ryan, E.

Mining in Deadwood Camp. ������'������_.  The St. Lawrence claim in Dead-  wood camp, adjoining the Mother  Lode, operated by the  Deadwood  Gold-Copper Mining Compauy, has  closed down, but will resume just  as   soon   as the  necessary boiler,  hoist, pump, etc., have been procured and installed.   The work on  this property has been  done  principally upon a shaft whicli- has been  sunk   on   the ledge and. which is  now about 73 feet iii  depth.    The  last eight feet of the 'sinking has  improved foot by foot;   iron and  calcite well mixed with copper" pyrites have been come upon in considerable quantities. The ledge is on the"  surface, it is thought,  although  no  crosscut has yet been made, to be  100 feet in width, and  this* is supposed to be kept up as depth has  gained; in fact, it is  gathered from  certain indications that it litis actually  increased.   Assays have been  taken  which vary greatly, 'Nothing less than $3 have been obtained,  but some have run-*as high as $13(5,  the latter, of course, being a picked  sample. Afairestimateoftheavevage  value of the ore at the depth gained  would be in the neighborhood of $8,  which is ample, as is shown by the  late report issued by Jay P. Graves,  to   afford   shipping   values    on   a  dividend-paying basis,  J. Peterson,  the superintendent, is  now  on  his  way to Spokane, and is endeavoring  to pick up*some second hand, machinery with  which  to start  the  early ojocrations which it is confidently thought will amply justify  the  purchase  of newer and  more  powerful   machinery in, tho  near  future.   SHORT   WAR   STORIES.  disillusionment. "I know," says  Allen, "Rhodes and his crowd are  at the bottom of this war, and were  it not for the fear that Britain  would lose its prestige, I would  never take up arms to support  Rhodes and his crew."  Private Sach, of the Lancaster.*?,  writing to his  friends at  Macclesfield, describes the final struggles of  Buller's relieving force before Ladysmith was reached.    He says: "We  only had seven  oflicers,  and  three  wero wounded early in the engagement.    With no officers left to give  commands the troops went forward  with a rush.    The supports did not  like    being   left   behind,   so tiiey  jumped up aud joined the firing  line, and a great number of reserves  followed    suit.       We   got   right  amongst the Boers with our bayonets  aud fairly surprised them,  paying  back many an old debt.     My chum  noticed a couple of Boer wagons  upset in a   donga   lying   to our  left     front,     between     the     hill  we      had      captured     and     that  on which the 2nd Queen's were  advancing.'   We made our way across  to them in search of spoil, but suddenly came in view of a Boer trench  about 50 yards in front, flying the  white flag  and  firing at the same  time.   We lay down and commenced to knock them over, when about  50 of their men ranout, threw down  their rifles, and up with tlieir hands.  We ceased   firing,  and I partially  raised my body to see them come in  when  one   fellow   jumped up and  shot me through the right shoulder.  I shouted to my chum, ' Look out ;  I'm  wounded.'    He,  however,  was  coming   across   to, my   assistance,  when several Boers got up and shot  him dead, then threw down  their  arms and ran towards the  remainder  of the  prisoners.     I tried  to  shoot the dogs on the.run, but could  not get my rifle to my^shoulder."  SECT THAT HONORS JUDAS.  paralysed, and a whole battery retiring before about 50 sharpshooters.  It was an hour and a half befoie  our advance could be resumed. The  time gained for the enemy was perfectly invaluable, it Was just that  by which he got off his four guns  and the Vickers-Maxim, besides a  long lino of heavily-laden transport, and but for it we might even  have brought, the Avar to the  abruptest of conclusioiib by the  capture of the two presidents���for  both were in the camp.

Herbert of the  Welsh regiment, who, eight dyys  before the surrender of the Boer  leader, attempted to swim the river  with despatches from lord Kitchener, and was captured by the Boors.  Writing shortly after his release  to a relative���a Welsh member of  parliament���who lias just received  the letter, lieutenant Herbert  describes the Boer laager as a veritable inferno. "After we weie  caught," he says, "we were compelled, to suiter the indignity of being deprived of our uniforms, which  were at once annexed by two' of  Cronje's oflicers. Tney thrust, us  into a dark hole carved out of the  kopje at the back of Cronje's tent,  and wc were not supplied with  either food or water for two days.  Our sufferings wero horrible. . .  Cronje seemed to be sure of success  then, and did not give up till the  seventh day, when he and his wife  attempted to flee, but found that  the Canadians had cut off the only  means of escape."  One of the II. Company, Imperial  Light Infantry, named Allen, writes  to a Neath (Glam.) gentleman an  account of his experiences in South  Africa. The Lancashire - advance  man at Spion Ivop was, he .says,  challenged by the Boer sentry, who  shouted out in Dutch, "Stop- who  goes there?" The advance shouted  "Friends," and got closer. The  sentry saw the trick, and warned  his comrades that "the English  were on them." "It was hi.s last  shout, one of our chaps ran up and  put the bayonet right through his  heart." At daybreak the mist  lifted, and then eamo the British  In his latest report to the czar,  the procurator of the holy synod,  tells of a new sect discovered in the  government of Yakeutsk, eastern  Siberia, and originated by a peasant, Filip Likhacheff, who was exiled to that remote .region from the  Uumskaya government for belonging to the sect of the "Skopt/.i."  The Auglo-IUissian says that the  doctrines of the new sect are explained in the, MS. headed, "My  Profession," and its chief points  are:  * (1) The first real disciple of Christ  was Judas, for ho repented - of his  sin and hanged himself. The same  method of death is recommended to  the members of the sect who wish  to part from this sinful life. (2)  Reverence is duo only to God, that  shown to any man is idolatry, ' (3)  Man being sinful in his very nature  and inclined to induce others to sin,  he must not have any-authority  OA'er his fellow man.. (4) Hence no  obedience must be shown to any  secular or ecclesiastical autboiity.  (5) The powers that be are* from  the devil, officials of the state, as  well as p'riests of the church, ((i)  Property is a sin as the result of  greed, likewise family ties as the  result of the Inst of the flesh.  Likhacheff, On being arrested,  openly acknowledged himself to be  tho author of "My Profession." The  heresy was spreading among workingmen, especially among "Skopt-  ssts" exiled to Siberia from European Russia.   Caused by a Panic.

Accord-  -ing to his story the Boer general,  finding his line of retreats imperilled, sent out a small body of  sharpshooters, who, advancing out  of our sight, gained a small ridge  towards which French was ridiug;  thence they poured in a sharp fire.
