(Signed)  ] )orby."  ^  Ottawa,- April '29.���Ottawa is  just beginning to recover from the  ���-hock of the' great fire. The -relief  nf the unfortunates is proceeding,  and from distant points evidences  of sympathy are pouring in. Cable-  gtams have been received from lord  Strathcona and loid Mount Stephen  donating $25,000 and $10,000 respectively. The relief committee  Jkis. ample use for all the money  it can get. < Jn many instances 'the  destitution is complete, even the  ordinary means of livelihood being  cut off. The Eddy company will  lebuild on a smaller scale than before. Its losses were $1,500,000. A  careful estimate by a prominent  lumberman places the value of lumber destroyed at $8,500,000. The  O, X'. R. loss is placed at only  $.300,000.   Ottawa Fhe Losses.  Ottawa, 'April 28.���[Special to  The/Pribune. J��� Although two clear  days have passed since the conflagration which' practically wiped  J he cityi_of_ If nil _oilfc.of_ existence  and devastated a large part of the  d by of Ottawa, there is* yet uo ae-  urate means of knowing the exact  amount of the losses of insurance.  A few facts have been gleaned here  and there, and the press and eor-  icspondents, like everybody eke,  had to make tho most of these  and speculate on what remained.  There is reason to change the  amount of total loss given in this  correspondence Iirst, when it was  put at about $15,000,000. E.B. Eddy  id t-LiU the heaviest loser in property, and has only $050,000 in insurance. One estimate of tiie insurance  gives the British companies' losses  at $2,000,000, American companies  $1,350,000 and Canadian companies  at $1,250,000, making $5,000,000 in  ai!, but it will bo some days before  miy reliable figures can be had.  Hundreds of people from the surrounding districts and many from a  distance visited Ottawa to see the  ruins today. The death list remains the same as yesterday, being  .seven in all.  Martin Springs a Sensation,  Kaslo, April 28.���[Special to  The Tribune.]���Premier Martin  sprang a mild sensation at his  meeting here last night. Discussing the recent disallowance of legislation passed by tho Semlin government in 189S to [restrict Oriental  immigration, he noted that the  Liquor License Act had been disallowed at Ottawa because it provided that no license to sell liquor  should be given to any Jap or Chinaman. "By that disallowance,"  ���said Mr. Martin," "all our affairs are  thrown into most absolute confusion.   There are no liquor licenses  in this province outside of city municipal ties. Every person who is  selling liquor in unincorporated localities, under proper form issued  by the province, is liable to a fine  under tho old laws, which are revived, because he has really got no  license, and there is no way of  giving the owners of hotels throughout the province any protection  whatever until the legislature meets  on July 5th."  LESS LENIENCY FOR REBELS  All Supplies  Commandered.  Blok.-ikoxtjj.in, April 29.���It is  understood that the British will  continue to hold Thaba N'Chu  owing to its strategic importance,  and also with view to checking  future'raids. The commandos that  had recently been operating in the  direction of Thaba N'Chu are getting away, the burghers quietly  returning to their farms and many  of them taking the oath of allegiance. Experience has shown,  however, in many cases, that this is  only a pretense to enable the Boers  to create disturbances on the rear  of the British, and vigorous methods will probably be necessary to  force real disarmament.  The recent operations have  tended to clear the military situation. General Pole-Carew's progress through the country has  brought home to the .Free Staters  the fact that the policy of leniency  has been abandoned. Besides seizing the stocks of farmers, who after  having given their submission were  found fightiug, he commandered all  the available supplies, giving receipts for the same, and this will  prevent tho Boers using the resources of the country.  The Boers are now evidently returning in order to concentrate for  opposing the British advance. Now  that Thaba N'Chu, as well as the  approaches is strongly held, Ladybrand, with the unfriendly Basutos  lining the order, is rendered a position of extreme danger ,-for the  Boors, the "gravity of which"-will be  accentuated from the moment the  British advance begins.  Maseru, April 29,���Firing was  heard in the direction of Thaba  N'Chu for some hours yesterday.  Many Boers are retreating from  Wepener and Dewetsdorp, proceeding by cross roads instead of by  the main road near the Basutoland  border. It is reported that they  aro in a miserable condition, disorganized and depressed. Many have  deserted and are hiding on farms.  The main body was in camp last  night near Leeuw river mills. They  were unhampered by wagons, using  pack horses mostly for purposes of  transportation. It ib believed that  most of the Transvaalers have gone  north. They told the natives that  they had been called away by president Kruger.  Thaba N'Chu, Saturday, April  28.���The adjacent country is now  clear, _the_Boers having -retired  towards Ladybrand. There are interesting developments ahead.  Admiral Dewey in Chicago.  WAbinxoTox, April 29.���Admiral J  Dewey, accompanied by Mrs. Dewey  and his private secretary Mr. Caldwell, left hero today for Chicago to  participate in the celebration of tho  second anniversary of the battle of  Manila. Admital Dewey just before leaving was abked if he had  any statement to make regarding  the presidency, "No," said he. "I  think it would be in bad taste for  me to say anything cf a political  nature just this time. As tho ad;  mi rnl of the navy, I accepted the  invitations to visit * Chicago, Jacksonville, St. Louis, Memphis, Nashville and Knoxville, which cities  had asked me to bo their guest, aud  I don't wish anything political to  enter into the trip."  Will Try McKiniey Now.  The IlAOl'E, April 29.���The members of the Boer peace mission will  sail from Rotterdam for the United  States next Thursday, by the Holland-American line steamship Moas-  dam. Dr. Leyds and Dr. Muelles  will not accompany the delegates.  The delegates will visit Amsterdam  tomorrow.  axxxxc  XXZXZZZXZZZZZZZXZXZXZZXXXZXXXX  inmimmmt  _*>���izi__xxxz_xxxxzxxxxxzxzzxzzzzzxxxz___xxxxxxxxzzxxxzzzxzzxxzxzxz_-{xzz:ax���:xxx_uxzxxj  TO THE ELECTORS OF NELSON RIDING  To Aid the Fire Sufferers.  London*, April 29.���The lord  mayor of London has opened a  Mansion House fund for the relief  of the victims of the Ottawa fire.  Yesterday Mr. Chamberlain, secretary for the colonies, wrote the lord  mayor and communicated to him  dispatches exchanged with the earl  of Minto, governor-general of Can-  As a candidate for the nomination of the Provincial Party, at the convention to be held iu Nelson  on May 12th, it is only fair to my supporters and the electors of the riding generally, that I should  state my views on questions that are of more than local interest. The best government that the great  province of Ontario has had was ono that received active support from many electors who were political  opponents of the men who formed the government, and it is noteworthy that that province won many  signal victories for provincial rights against the Dominion government. The fight for provincial rights  in Manitoba was commenced by a man who was an ardent supporter of the political party then in power  at Ottawa; but the stand that he took on the railway disallowance question did not meet with the approval of the leaders of his party, and he was driven from ollice. I refer, in_ this instance, to  the late John Norquay. So, iu this province, I believe that the best government for the people will be  one in which party is made secondary to provincial rights. The business affairs of the people and legislation affecting the development of the resources of the province should not be placed in the hands of  men would merely do the bidding of the leaders^of either of the political parties that arc striving for  control of the affairs of the Dominion. If nominated at the Provincial Party convention and elected to  the assembly, my vote and influence will be agaiust party-line government, and in favor of one that  will stand up for provincial rights, that is, the management of the internal affairs of the province by the  province.  Each riding has local requirements, and a member of tho legislative assembly should be able and  willing to contend for what he knows his riding is fairly entitled to; but every man aspiring for membership should place himself on record on questions that he believes are for the general good. I am in favor  of legislation on the following lines:  1. Representation in the legislative assembly should be based on population, with such modifications as will give sparsely settled districts proportionately larger representation than cities and thickly  !  settled farming districts. " -*'  2. All legislation should be general, and not special.    A beginning has been made in this direction  by the enactment of laws under which cities can be incorporated, companies formed, and water records  obtained. -These should be added to by the passage of a general railway incorporation act, and one giving  -*-__���*��  municipalities the same powers to acquire water records^as are now accorded private corporations.  3. Public lands should be kept for actual settlement, and land subsidies should not be granted to *V  aid the building of railways that when built are owned by corporations. j  4. Government ownership of railways is no more a theory than municipal ownership of public j  utilities. Both have been tried and found to work for the public good when capably and honestly man- j  aged; but in making a commencement in government ownership of railways in this province, a section I  should be selected in which the government would bav�� a free hand, and not in sections where competi- j  tion would be met.                                                               ' j  5. Prevention of the landing in this province of Chinese and Japanese laborers, and the discourage- I  ment of the employment of those already here by every fair means possible.                                       , :  0.   Positive, not negative, laws should only be passed.   If the principle of the law is good, the law I  should be made effective.   The eight-hour day for men .working underground in metalliferous mines is I  now generally accepted as legislation in the right direction.   I would oppose any legislation that would t  repeal the penalty clause, or in any other way impair the effectiveness of the law as it now stands.             - [  7. To give immediate effect, by legislation, to a resolution similar to that known as-the Muloch F  resolution, recently passed by the Dominion House of Commons, which provides for the payment of fair f  wages on public works or. works aided by ��ovoi_mo}*fc-SiTb**iia"es.. All-contractors doing  -w-ork foi- oithot- ��  'the province or for municipalities should be required to pay labor the rate of wages ruling in the t  municipality or neighborhood in which the woik is to be done, the number of hours to constitute a day on h  all such w��rk to be fixed by statute. ,. jj  8. Courts have been established in which individuals and corporations are compelled to settle jj  disputes, however trivial, disputes that seldom have any bearing on the general prosperity of =the jj  community in which the disputants reside; and courts should be established for the compulsory jj  settlement of disputes between the representatives of capital and labor, disputes that too often are far j jj  reaching in their damaging effects on the general prosperity of whole communities aud districts.     ' jj  9. Mining for the precious metals is the one industry which is benefiting, directly or indirectly, jj  every community in the province, and legislation affecting the industry, in the way of taxation, should be a  based on the treatment and manufacture within the province of the product of the mines, rather than on g  the output of the mines as at present. ~|j  10. The establishment of a bureau, with headquarters in British 'Columbia and not Jn Great ��  Britain, to systematically advertise all the natural resources and scenic attractions of the province. S  JI.   Organized municipalities should,be given the control  of their public schools, leaving to the g  province the care   of public   schools in  unorganized districts and the maintenance of normal   and B  technical schools. 4 R  12. Trunk roads" and trails should - be built and maintained at public expense, aud tho cost of k  roads and trails to isolated mines and communities should be borne in part by the province. |  13. General hospitals should be under government control, and tho government should help jj  maintain physiciansJnsparsely settled sections of-tho province.  a  14. The government in power should make official announcement, for a reasonable time before the ��  legislative assembly meets, of all proposed legislation. Were this done there would be fewer hastily ��  passed laws, laws which arc too often against the public interest. jj  AH of which is respectfully submitted for your consideration. ��  Nelson, April 28th, 1900. JOHN HOUSTON jj  S  :xzsscz-��__i_��x*-:xx_��xxxxx__izxzxxzxx___ix__jnrxixx.K  (j  II  a  W  H  ada, showing tho extent of the disaster and also that the Canadian  premier, sir Wilfrid Laurier, had  assured lord Minto that Mr. Chamberlain's suggestion that the mother  country would like to contribute  was appreciated. Mr. Chamberlain  wrote: "In these circumstances,  my lord, 1 would ask you, with your  usual kindness, to consider the desirability of oponing a fund. I am  confident that at a time when Canada is making, in South A f riea, such  sacrifices for the common interests  of the empire, an appeal to the  generosity of the British public will  meet with a ready response."  High School Scholars Here.  'Principal Soady of the Central  "school Avill take up high school  work with an advanced class of  scholars after the summer holidays.  The trustees have decided on this  course as a means of affording  students the opportunity of taking  high school work without going to  the Coast or to the East. When  the number of pupils taking the  work is sufficiently large a high  school can be secured in Nelson. In  the interim scholars may obtain  exactly the same instruction. A  number of scholars will take the  high school entrance examination in  June and from these a class of probably ten will be formed for the advanced studies.  BOER CHASE IS ABANDONED  Eoberts' Plan Failed.  London, April .*J0.���The dispatches from lord Roberts, published yesterday, were the usual list  of deaths and sickness. The flood  of newspaper dispatches today describing recent operations throws  no light whatever upon the present  position of affairs or upon the great  question as to when the main advance is to begin. The Standard's  announcement that French's cavalry are returning to Bloemfontein  is clear proof that there is no further hope of catching the retreating Boers, and the London papers  are beginning to display impatience  at the practical failure of the  elaborate operations of last week.  The Daily Mail publishes a statement from colonel Long*, who was  blamed for the loss of the guns at  Colenso, that in advancing the guns  as ho did, he merely obeyed orders,  and that the staff was quite ignorant of the proximity of the Boer  2iosition.  The sudden decision of the Boer  peace delegates to go to America is  attributed to the fact that tbe government of the Netherlands, after  sounding all the Europeau capitals,  told them they had nothing to hope  from Europe.  Colonel Dalgety's force at Wepener numbered 1700. " His losses  during the siege*- -were .'30 killed and  11!) wounded, it is reported that  .there was an artillery engagement  yesterday at Kurce Hiding, but no  details have been received yet.  Amvvai- Noimr, April 29.���It is  reported iiere that commandant  Olivier was wounded at Wepener,  last Monday. Six New 'Zealanders  while scouting fought .six Boers,  killing three and wounding three.  One New Zealander was wounded.  Tho inhabitants of Rouxville do  not know to what government they  belong as there is uo civil administration there.  Fear an Indian  Uprising.  >Sbattm-i, April 29. ���Residents of  Haines Mission, eighteen miles below Skagway, on the Lynu canal,  have ntade an appeal to the army  officers at Skagway for troops to  protect them against the feared  Indian -uprising. The trouble arose  over the imprisonment of Indians  arrested for murder last fall.  Soers Were Too Quick.  Loxnox, April 20.���The war office  gave out the casualty list of Wepener opemtiorib yesterday, but closed  at midnight without announcing  the    result   of   Friday's battle at  Thaba N'Chu. The inference drawn  by military men from General Roberts' silence was that Dewet's  forces had passed through Thaba  N'Chu before Colville, French and  Rundle had came, and that a rear  guard alone remained in an entrenched position. Tho press dispatches were meagre and the censor did not allow any details of the  British concentrations to ��� pass  through.  The news was light from Natal,  Cape Town and Kimberley. The  most important matter was an account of a meeting of the South  African league at Cape Town, at  which the Afrikander bund was denounced as a malign political force,  ! and the influence of the Dutch reformed church was deplored.  The success of the Boers in eluding pursuit while menaced with  attack by a superior force directed  by generals like Roberts and  French is respected. If they had  waited at Dewetsdorp another half  day there would have been another  Paardeberg. Cronje's disaster  warned them that they could not  offer resistance to the combined  force of four divisions of infantry,  and they retreated in time to avoid  disaster.  The Boers have shown remarkable flexibility throughout the campaign in adapting themselves to  British tactics. They learned how  to take advantage of general Methuen's frontal attacks and general  Buller's method of warfare,  aud have profited by general Robert's object lessons. They  have contrived to quicken the  mobility of their own commandoes,  and in this have outstripped Roberts' cavalry and infantry, and have  retreated safely although^exposed  to a brilliant and well ordered  strategy.    BRIDGE HORROR IN PARIS  Six Persons Killed.  ' Paris, April,29.���An accident today within the exposition  grounds  oau _>r*l* the   dost,li "of   fit   looot   <__'  persons.    About 40 others wero'injured. * A temporary bridge, unable  Lo withstand   the Sunday crowd,  broke.   The accident threw a pall  over the happiness of an immense  throng which had profited .by the  magnificent weather to visit the exposition.     Today's  was   probably  the record attendance.   Not merely  the interior of the grounds but the  precincts   also were crowded,  the  course was particularly great along  the'avenue de Suffron, which forms  the   northern   boundary ��� of   the  grounds.    Here is situated a  big  side show, the  Celestial  Globe.   A  "foot-bridge, on which the finishing  touches   were   being   put   today,  crosses the avenue de Suifron,.connecting the side --how with the'ex-  hibition.    it   was   constructed   of  wood, with  a stucco facade,  aud  with ajMloster made kwerat the  "ends." Strangely enough the bridge  had   been    condemned   only   this  morning as unsafe by the exhibition  authorities.    The public was, therefore, not allowed to go  upon tho  structure and in this way, a, disaster  even more terrible than that which  occuricd was averted.  The gay crowd was passing along  the avenue, and some hundred or  more persons were walking beneath the bridge when suddenly an  ominous crash was heard. Before  those underneath could turn aside,  the structure foil with a fearful  crash burying nearly fifty people.  A shout of horror rose from the  spectators, mingled with cries of  tho victims. For a moment nothing  could be distinguished but a cloud  of dust and plaster. A scene of the  greatest excitement and confusion  foIIoAved. But this was only a few  seconds. Almost immediately the  crowd attacked the debris in an  effort to release those lying  beneath. The workmen within the  grounds who had witnessed the  accident summoned the police, and  the republican guards, together  with quite a number of soldiers,  joined in the rescue work.  to  The  the  Tewfik  Pasha, the  May Patch Matters Up.

Nkw Yokk, April  29.���The Australian federation, iustead of being  a stumbling block for the Salisbury  ministry is likely to prove a stepping  stone to some comprehensive scheme  of imperial federation, which will  be   the   natural   goal   of   British  statesmanship after a costly war in  defence of the empire.    The question has taken a new turn, involving a contest between the principles^  of imperialism and colonial autoh-"  omy, but it is evident  that there  will be a compromise by which the  controversy will  be settled.     The.  Australian commonwealth  will be  altered, not as a concession to the  mother country, but as a safeguard  for the empire, since the confederation in the south seas must be kept  in touch with the confederation in  Canada, and the confederation  in  South Africa which will be brought  about iu the near future.     The re-,  ten tion   of   the power   of appeal  willbeaffectedunderacoustitutional  change which will satisfy Australia.^  The judicial committee of the privy  council   will   be   disarmed, and -a  new court of appeal established for  the empire.     The details are not  worked out, but it is  believed that  the court will include two lords of  appeal from England, and one each  for     Canada,     Australia,     South  Africa   and  India.    Mr.  Chamberlain is throwing himself with his  usual  energy into the subject, and'  may produce a measure  which will  be the most important legislation  work of the session of parliament. '  The settlement of Australian con-t  federation   with   the  close of the *.  war in South Africa will enable tho  unionist   party   to   appeal  to" the  country with confidence.    Veterans  in parliament now assert that the  general elections are likely,to  be  deferred until next year, since lord. *  Salisbury canuot be convinced  by*'  Mr. Chamberlain that it was  wiw%_  to bring tJJem on   with  premature  haste, the duke of 'Devonshire and  Mr. Balfnur being strougly in favor  of delay,' and insisting that to the  ministry ample time must be allowed in which to formulate terras  of settlement and to complete restoration to order in South Africa,  and that the turmoil and-distraction of a general election would iu*  tcrfere seriously with the most arduous undertaking for which the  government is held responsible by  tho nation.  Lord Roseberry has made so  many statements that his friends  arc beginning to forecast his. resumption of the Liberal leadership, *  but he discredits their prophecies  by a new proof of his inability to  make up his mind on an independent question. His speech at tho  dinner of the City Liberal Club last  night disclosed his usual charm of  delivery, and phrasing, but he de- -  clined to tell his Australian delegates whether the right of appeal  to the privy council should be man-  taiued or abrogated, and contents  himself with an expiession of re-  grot that there should bo any  points of difference between Australia and England.  He had an embarrassing tark in  presiding tonight at the dinner  given by the Reform Club to sir  William MaeCormack and Dr.  Trove-., tho two eminent wirgeonsi  who have returned from South  Africa. Next week he will take up  liis Australian problem anew at the  dinner of the National Liberal Club,  with all the leaders of the party  around him except hir William  Harcourt and Mr, Morley, and he,  will disappoint his friends if he  speaks with so much caution and  indecision. Ho is also expected to  support tho prince of Wales at tho '  dinner of the British Empire  ���League at the Hotel Cecil on Monday night. The Australian delegates, especially Messrs.. Barton  and Deakin, are admit able speakers, with a bread tli of thought and  grace of delivery, and their presence in London i.s the signal for  public dinners on all sides.

New   York,   April   29.���In   his  cable letter  to  this morning's Tribune Mr. Isaac N. Ford, the London  correspondent,   discusses   the   war  situation from the home standpoint  as   follows:    "'There   has  been   no  second Paardeberg, but there have  been many signs of better thiugs in  reserve for the empire.    The moral  of the  British  army  has  been  restored, and  tho  rank and  file  are  now all led  by oflicers  who  study  the tactics of the army.    Aldershot  was uppermost when the campaign  opened, and it was unequal to the  emergency.    Lord Roberts has  reorganized the army and brought to  the. front generals who follow  the  traditions   of   the   Indian   service  rather .than the   formulas of   the  staff college and the training man-  CBuvers of  sham  battles.    Another  reassuring sign is the warmth of  the  German   emperor's   friendship  for England.    He has never faltered  since the outbreak of the war, but  he had domestic policies of his own  to work out, and for political  reasons  would  not express   his  good  will  too  quickly.    If he has  now  thrown off all restraint and allowed  the world to know where he stands  in his relations with England, it is  because he is convinced that the  German people are with him.    lie is  a German sovereign first and  last,  and has a remarkable power of forecasting the forms of opinion in the  fatherland.    Ho has virtually pio-  claimed   that   in future  Germany  and England will stand on common  lines of industiial progress equally  together."   Thirty Thousand Dollar Payment.

Martix  has a.nuinber  of political  supporters in the  city  ���   council of Vancouver.-The  premier.  is said' to be a warm and steadfast-  friend of the workingraan, but his  supporters in ��� the city  council do  . not live up to his profession.   They  will-not require contractors on city  work   to either pay the scale of  ' wages paid by the city   or   work  their men the  hours that the city  established for a day's work; they  will  not do public work,  such as  constructing sewers, by day's labor.  Alderman McQueen led the Martin  forces in the recent Liberal convention   held,  at Vancouver,   and he  leads the  Martin adherents in the  city council. They claim that the  ratepayers of Vancouver have beeu  asked to vote $150,000 for the building of sewers, and that if contractors are not given a free hand in  the 'employment of labor, the  money asked for will not be sufficient by $20,000 to complete the  proposed work.     :  POLITICAL  POINTERS.  The representative of a Winnipeg house, who recently returned  to Nelson from a trip through  Slocan riding, is reported as saying  that,- in his- opinion,-Rt "Fr-Green-  would win out against any combination that could be made against  him.  There is strong talk in Rossland  of pulling Mackintosh off aud putting up a candidate that could beat  ���Smith Curtis. Mayor Hardy of  Greenwood or alderman Lalondo of  Rossland could do it.

Capital Authorized  Capital Paid up  Rest  $2,500,000  $2,391,863  $1,554,710  The first lien that England obtained on Egypt was a most dishonorable one. A most extravagant ruler of that coun try wanted  money, no end of money, and was  willing to agree to stand any  amount of discount and to pay any  amount of interest to obtain it.  Some sharp English capitalists advanced the money and took the  Pasha's obligations for payment.  For the obligations they had advanced  perhaps 20 per cent.    But  they next proceeded  to   do some  judicious  advertising.    Egypt was  to be redeemed.    A great modern  ruler   was at the   helm  and   the  ancient  splendor  of   Egypt  when  the  valley   of the  Nile    was  the  world's granary, was to be restored.  Then  the   timid,  capitalist,   those  who are content with steady interest on their investments, began "to  nibble,    and  the   worthless  bonds  were unloaded at par or nearly at  par. and the speculators were made  rich.    But it was not long until the  ''dupes found   that there    was  no  probability of their ever receiving  either principal or interest on their  investment.     Then  they appealed  to  the  government.    The  government assumed the indebtedness r it  .purchased- the control of the Suez  < anal, paying in part with these obligations,   aud,   occupying   Egypt,  held the rest of tho indebtedness a  lien  upon that distressed country.  This was under tho bharp management of Disraeli.    But since then  some changes have been wrought.  (Gordon  went to  Khartoum.    And"  /1.)��e"!4I)ervishes, rising under a new  Mahdi,   besieged   him   there,     lie  j scut'to England for help.    In the  meantime  Mr./GIadstone  had   become   premier, and   ho  hesitated.  At last lie sent a relief force, but it  was  only one-half what it should  have   been,   and it   was too late.  The force  sent   was met  on   the  ik-bcrt and fearfully punished," Almost overthrown, and in the meantime   general    Gordon   was   slain.'  Then the force, without winning  anything like a victory, was withdraw n, and all over Upper Egypt  the word was sent out that the  J*]i)glish were no longer invincible.  Jhit Kitchener was detailed to organize and "put in fighting form the  ^((.���moralized Egyptian' army.     He  Mient eight years iu the work, and  ^vuen he moved he pushed a railroad ahead of him across the desert,  1 uid steamers built and sent in sec-  iJ��ns for use on the Upper Nile,  and finally, after fighting two preliminary  battles, when  ready for  the final struggle, sent to England  - for some regiments of trained Brifc-  5ah  soldieis and,  beiug  all ready,  struck  tho  final blow  which  was  annihilation to the enemy.   That  oppned  to him all Upper Egypt.  Then the work of regeneration be-  ��'.ui and now,  at tremendous expense, sotuo   dams nnd   reservoirs  aio beiug built ou the Tipper Nile  w hich, when completed, will make  ���possible    the restoration   of   that  country   even   ab   it   was   wheu  Joseph's brethren went down into  Egj-pt for bread.   On these works  iho sum of $7800is beiug daily paid  to Kgyptian laborers., and for a long  time has been, and for a- long time  in the future will be.   And fcchool-  houses   are   being   opened;   lord  Kitchener was planning a uuiver-  j-ity for Khartoum when ordered to  Kolith Africa, and fiftv years hence,  t he world will say that it was fate  that sent the paleface to Egypt to  restore it. ,   The Transition of Cuba.  General Ludlow, iu the Independent, describes the transition of  Cuba. It is a wonderful story.  "When the Americans took possession of Havana there wero 17,000  Spanish soldiers gartered in the  eity; there were thousands of  triumphant Cubans shouting "Cuba  Libre'.'; there was a vicious and incendiary press seeking to make  trouble. Then there was disease  nnd starvation everywhere. The  i cconcentrados "lay dead in the  streets and in their noisome quar-  tei_" Worse still was the filth of  Sour hundred years to breed and  ���quicken the pestilence, and all the  demoralization which follows closely in the footsteps of war. That  was less than a year and a half ago.  Now there is perfect order ; the city  is as healthy as any. city on the  southern coast; the great scourge,  yellow feArer, is nearer extinct than  it has been before for a century;  the city is splendidly policed by  native policemen under a native  captain (it was made up from a  division of the Cuban army); courts  havo been established which are  all performing their functions ably  aud without restraint, and two  thousand schools have been opened.  The world has no other such a  record ; nothing to compare with it,  and the work performed in the city  of Havana alone places the United  States in the very forefront of  nations.  D. It.

Once when general Butler was in  congress he arose in his place and  and gently insinuated that the  member who was. occupying the  floor was transgressing the limit of  debate. " Why, general," said the  member iii reproachful tones, "you  divided your time with me." "I  know I did." rejoined the grim old  warrior, "but I did not divide  eternity with you."  But perhaps Butler's most savage  retort was made in a political convention, in Avhich a distinguished  Unitarian diviue, I think it. was  James Freeman Clarke, sat as 'a  delegate. While the subject of  candidates was being discussed this  clergyman announced that if a certain nomination was made he would  bolt the convention.  "Very likely," Butler blurted out.  "You are good at bolting ; in your  religion you bolt two-thirds of the  Trinity." "    ...  The convention broke into a roar  of laughter, in which the clergyman joined.  During the civil war the law  school at Cambridge was presided  over by professors Parous, Parker  aud Washburn. They were divided'  in their political views and* each  did his best to maintain hi3 opinion.  Prof. Parker was one day asked:  ���' How do you get along on politics  at the school?" - " Nicely," he said,  "we are equally divided." "But  how can that be," [continued the  enquirer, "since there are three of  you? " " Easy enough,", replied the  professor ; "Parsons writes on one  side aud I on the other, and Wash-  bum���he speaks on one side and  votes on the other."  The Irishman was painting his  barn, and he was hurrying his work  with all his strength and speed.  "What are you in such a hurry for  Murphy ?V asked a spectator. "Sure,  I want to get through before me  paint runs out," was the reply.  Compressor for the Sullivan.  That the Sullivan mine in East  Kootenay is to be furnished with a  10-drill compressor within six or  seven weeks is the news announced  by Charles JL Wolf, manager of  the company, says the Spokesnian-  lleview. The order for the plant  Avas placed with the Canadian Rand  Drill Company Tuesday. The Rand  company agrees to have the  plant on the ground in 30 days, and  it will take a fortnight 'or three  weeks to set it up and get it running.  "We expect to begin shipping in  a few days," said Mr. Wolf yesterday. ''The only thing that delays  us is the aiding at Kimberley, which  is not quite completed. There are  20 cat loads of ore sorted and ready  for shipment. When the compressor is installed we expect to bo able  to ship 50 or 00 tons a day from the  start. The ore being produced now  is that 'got out in the course  of development, and as Sloping ground is opened up the tonnage will be largely. incteased.  "There is au impression abroad  that the Sullivan output is purely  a concentrating pre. This is incorrect. While we will probably ultimately need a concentrator to  make a shipping product out of a  considerable portion of our ores,  tho main ore bodies are of such  q uality that the raw ore will bear  shipment. The average values in  the north diift in the past month  were 55 per cent lead and 20 ounces  of silver, and on the crosscut, upraise and south drift of 4.5 per cent  lead and 25 ounces of silver has  been the average."

London, April 28,���The Bloemfontein correspondent of the Daily  Chronicle, telegraphing Thursday,  says: "The latest reports show that  the Boers passed east, of Thaba  Nehu when going north.

Fifty-fiye men are on the payroll  of the. smelter department of the  British Columbia Copper Company^  This will be about the'force necessary to carry on the building of the  smelter for some weeks: to come.  'Large quantities -. of timber, briek  :a_xl lime is being hauled'to the  smelter site for immediate use.  Carpenters are framing timbers for  the sampler and also for the  upper and lower * ore bins.

The flue is 600 feet in  length and it will take time to finish  this work. Instead of erecting a  brick smokestack a metal one 75  feet iu height will be used. Work  has also started on the construction  of the upper trestle from the railroad spur extending over the ore  bins, of which there are six, each  being 25x50 feet in size.

Provincial Party Convention.  Ferguson Eagle.  1 On Wednesday evening last a  meeting of those opposed to the  Liberal-Conservative party was  held in S. Shaunon's assay office.  About thirty voters were present.  A. J. Gordon was voted to the chair  and Frank Holten appointed secretary. ' A general discussion of the  political situation took place in  which several took part. All the  speakers expressed great personal  respect for Thomas Taylor, but  showed great distrust of several of  the other candidates of that party.  The meeting seemed unanimous in  their belief that the Conservative  party was insincere and had no in-  tention_ of carrying jmfr the JVVest-  minster platform" if elected. JT M.

CANADIANS LED THE WAY  At Israel's Poort Fight.  London, April 30.���A special dispatch   from   Thaba   N'Chu,  dated  Thursday, describing the fight at  Israel's poort, which is about seven  miles west of Thaba N'Chu, says:  "Three hundred Boers Avere strongly  intrenched  on two   kopjes.     The  place of honor Avas given the Canadians, who advanced Arery cleA'erly  under   their   dashing   commander,  colonel Otter.    The Boors reserved  their  fire   until  the  Canucks  had  readied the wire entanglement, then  they opened with a hail of bullets.  The    Canadians,     however,     had  taken     good     cover    and    they  were      not      greatly      damaged.  They were ably supported by thev  ..Grahamstown -Horse.-     Successive  rushes brought them right up to  the kopjes, AArhen Colonel Otter was  struck twice, one bullet inflicting a  nasty but not dangerous Avound in  the neck, and the other tearing the  badges from  his shoulder,  but he  still cheered his men along until  the   kopjes    Avere    carried.     The  Boers  bolted.   The   British   losses  were 20 iu killed and wounded.  A  despatch   to the  Daily   Mail  from Thaba N'Chu, describing the  same engagement, says: "The British artillery shelled the kopjes all  day   from   three   positions.     The  Boer positions were extremely well  chosen, consisting of a long range  or very precipitous hills with nar-  i'Oav. bases between, and- commanding a ATast extent of country.    The  mounted   infantry   made   a   Avide  turning movement while the foot  infantry    advanced   Avithin     two  thousand yards, under good shelter.  During the afternoon the   battle  became   general,    and     extended  o\'er   a   frontage   of   ten   miles.  The rifle, maxim and artillery firing Avas deafening.    At 8 o'clock  the Canadians adA'anced   in - open  order, but meeting Avith a terrible  fire they took 'shelter in a donga,  but   they    finally    captured,   the  kopjes.     The Boers were seen retiring north and east Avith wagons,  and subsequently Avhen thp infantry made a dash   the rest of   the  enemy fired a few shots and cleared  out.    On occupying Thaba N'Chu  we found the stores and hotels all  looted.   Natives complain  of having their horses and cattle stolen  and of cruel treatment.   The English   residents    are    subjected   to  taunts   and    insults.       Yesterday  Boer reinforcements   from-Brandfort came too lato to assist   their  comrades.     We found~a heliogra*-"  pliic message from president Steyn  to general Botha, saying it Avas uu-  advisableto send more troops  to  Fourteen   Streams as the federals  Avere   already   too weak  between  Bloemfontein and Kroonstadt, and  because there Avere 50,000 British  ESTABLISHED 1892  H.
