PRICE 'FIVE CENTS  BIG FIRE INjNEW YORK CITY  Barges and Pier Destroyed.  Nkw Yohk, May 0.���A five that  {-tufted at the river edge of the  Mallory Line Steamship Company's  pier at the foot of." Maiden lane and  the East river early this morning  completely destroyed the pier and  its valuable contents. The police  place the loss at $1,000,000. Sev-  ci al barges which were moored at  Uie pier wero destroyed and many  l cscues of tlieir captains and of the  members of the families on board  were made. Only one life was lost,  the nine months' old daughter of  captain Charles Lochs, of the Barge  ���Sherwood, being drowned.  The Mallory line  pier  was   200  feet long and  50 feet wide.   The  pier shed v\ as filled  with  valuable  freight of miscellaneous character,  mostly cotton.    On the north  side  of tho pier were moored a  number  of coal  and   cotton barges, while  on the south side was   the  steamer  San Marcos, aud a number of barges.  No sooner had the work of fighting  tho flames begun, than the  firemen  and citizens turned their  attention  to the work of saving the  lives of  those  ou  the  barges,  which were  lying   within   the  line of  danger.,  Nearest to the pier was  the  barge  Stephen Belkin, her captain Frank  Fox,     and     his   wife,    his   three  months'     old     daughter    and    a  1 aby      were      on      board     and  sleeping.    A skid was run from the  pier  to   the barge,  the  occupants,  wore  awakened  and were hurried  fiom   their  bunks  to a   place   of  .safety     before -the    flames     had  reached them.    On board the barge  Sherwood were Charles  Lochs, the  captain. 30 years old, his wife Lena  IS   and   their   daughter    Itosie,   nine  mouths old.    The Lochs family was  ��� awakened   by the flames.      Their  Large was  already on  fire at the  \ fme that they were aroused from  ��!eep.    The   father   cook  the  nine  ^months' old baby iu his aims, aud  with his wife jumped into the river.  Captain Timothy* Boylen, formerly  of the barge New Brunswick, whose  home' is at Rondeau,., New York,  plunged into the water to save tho  u oinai), who had become exhausted.  Jltr   husband,   who still   held the  baby in his arms, saw his  wife was  on the point of going down  and  ifc  Leeame   a question   to him as  to  which he should save, his  wife or  the  baby.      Tfe therefore   lot the  baby go in the hope that she would  be picked up, by some one else and  went to the assistance of his wife.  3 Jo managed to hold her head above  ���water  till   Boylen   reached  them.  All three were then lauded by the  ] fe    lines. The     half-drowned  v tptain and his wife were removed  io the Hudson street hospital where  11 ter they recovered. On the coa{  barge S. II. Hand, which lay alongside the other burning barges, were  the captain, Joshua H. Lumb, his  wife and two children, all of whom  ���u ere r_escuejLbyi the_police. .Michael Sheldon of that boat was compelled to jump into the river from  ���>\ here he was rescued. Three large  -vessels were lying so near the blazing pier that their safety was en-  (Uugeied, the steamer Sanmurios,  ihe steamer Nueces, which were  towed out into mid stream, aud the  barge St. James, the rigging of  ' wliich was burned before she could  be towed out of harm's way.  The scene on the water was a  most exciting one, for the river was  filled with craft, nearly all of which  wci e engaged in towing the various  v o^els and barges, to safety from  their dangerous positious. Four  cotton barges, others laden with  corn meal, and some loaded with  t oal caught fire and were destroyed.  Rome of them were also sunk to  prevent the further spread of the  J lames,  A number of buildings on South  street were scorched and several  weie emptied of their tenants who  feared that the buildings would be  burned.  Henry Mallory said of the fire. "I  have no idea how the fire started  and I can form no idea of the loss.  J f the entire pier is destroyed together with the offices and other  buildings on the pier head. T cannot tell what, our plans will be or  when wo will begin to build. Books  and other documents were destroyed, and I cannot say anything  ���ibout the insurance at present."  tributed $25,000 to the relief fund  of the fire sufferers. New Zealand  was among the first to send sympathy to the cities of Ottawa and  Hull and now it sends practical  sympathy.  BOERS ARE DRIVEN NORTH  Bundle in Pursuit.  Tjiaha Nchu, 3Iay 5.���Geueral  Bundle litis pursued the Boers,  with the 17th brigade, two batteries, and contingents of the yeomanry and mounted infantry, and  has succeeded in reaching them  with artillery, forcing them to leave  their position. The yeomanry are  making a long detour in pursuing  them. The result is not known  heic.  AUSTRALIAN     FEDERATION  Privy Council in the Way.  Nkw Yonrc, May G.--Isaac N.  Ford cables fiom London to this  morning's Tribune in regard to the  Australian question and the doings  of the delegation as follows: " Mr.  Chamberlain was silent last night  but the Australian question has  kept him too busy to take up points  of military etiquette and policy.  The Australian delegates have been  dining nightly with Liberal and  Conservative clubs and associations,  and have not missed an opportunity  of stating their case briefly.  "Ifc comes  to this, that  if Australians allowed to make its constitution and organize  a confederation it must have the privilege of  interpreting the law of the commonwealth through a high court of  its own, only those questions affecting  the public  interests  of  other  portions of the  empire being reserved for the imperial court   of  appeal.   The Australian delegates  are able men and fluent orators and  are carrying the country with them.  Ifc is a strange conflict between the  traditions and   precedents of   the  privy council,  a body of 250 advisers of the  crown who .never meet  and the progressive democracy' of  tlio" colonies with tlio referendum  principle behind them. >   Mr. Chain-  borlain will probably arrange a settlement   and   allow the   commonwealth bill to pass without amendment.  "The Australian delegates are  men of iron constitutions to endure  a strain of hospitality which would  break down -ordinary Britons.  Their engagements next week include banquets atthe Constitutional,  the Stephen?, Devonshire and other  clubs."   REIGN OF TERROR EXISTS  In the  Philippines.  York,    May    6.v  Jfew Zealand's Munificence.  Ottawa, May 6.���[Special to The  Tiibune.]���Premier Seddon of New  Zealand, sends a cable to sir Wilfrid Laurier informing him that the  j\ nw Zealand government has con-  New York, May 6.-���Edwin  Wiklexnan, former vice consul at  Hong Kong, contributes an article  on the reign of terror iu the Philippines to Frank Leslie's-Weekly  of which tho following is an abstract: "r Although, general Otis  would have us. belieye that tho war  in the Philippines is over, I learn  from pi ivate sources of information  of the highest authority that there  exists a veritable roign of terror in  most parts of the archipelago within gunshot from our army posts.  " Either general Otis is blind to  the situation or he is keeping tho  real facts from the American people.  Agninaldo's forces havo scattered  into marauding bands and are  leaguing themselves with the  mountain Tuilsannes and Ladrones.  They are terrorizing the country  and effectually checking the cultivation of crops and the sale of  marketable products. The few  ports that have been opened have  shipped away what little supply  they contained and the tons upon  tons of hemp, sugar and ryo that  are stored iu the interior are beyond the reach of tho buyers.  "The money paid for the thousands of bales of hemp shipped from  garrisoned ports has found its way  into the insurgent coffers, and the  revolutionary agent at Hong Kong  is making extensive purchases of  arms, preparatory to a renewed  season of filibustei ing and general  hostilities as soon as the rainy season is over.  "Scattered bands of insurgents  wage war against us who do not  acknowledge the Aguinaldo government, and the inhabitants are in a  state of terror that prevents honest  industry or business with the merchant. The islands will be perfectly useless unless life and property are made safe."'  British Everywhere Successful.  London, May (J.���The Avar office  has published the following despatch from lord Roberts, dated  Vet River, Saturday, May 5, 7:15  p. m.���I marched here today with  Pole-Carew's division. Headquar-  tois and Wavells brigade of the tenth  division are two miles in the rear.-  Maxwell's brigade of the same division is the same distance to our  right. The enemy are in strength  on the opposite bank of the river.  Our guns engaged theirs for three  hours without our ��� being able to  force a passage of the river, but  shortly before dusk the mounted  infantry under general Hutton  turned the enemy's right flank in a  very dashing manner pushing them  across the river under heavy shelling. We are now bivouacking for  the night within three miles of Vefc  river. Our casualties, I hope, are  nofc numerous.  Hamilton was in action yesterday  and succeeded in preventing a  junction of two Boer forces by a  well executed movement by some  of the household cavalry, the  Twelfth Lancers and Kitchener's  Horse, who charged a body of the  enemy and inflicted serious loss.  Tho enemy fled, leaving their dead  on the field and their wounded to  be tended by our doctors. Mac-  Donald's Highland brigade dislodged the enemy on the right  flank under cover of the naval guns,  in which operation the Black Watch  distinguished themselves and were  very skilfully led.  Hamilton was advancing this  morning to a difficult drift over the  Klein Vet river.   '  Hunter reports that Barton's brigade was engaged this morning  within two miles of Roodian. The  enemy's position was quite four  miles long ond strongly held. He  states that our men marched magnificently and carried ridge after  ridge in grand style. Casualties in  this'-force and in Hamilton's encounters will be reported as soon as  possible.  Captain Miller, who was taken  prisoner near Thaba Nchu, has been  sent to Ruddle's camp by the enemy  wifch a severe wound in the abdomen.  Brabant reports that one sergeaut  and three men were captured on  May 2nd while on patrol, and that  one of them, who had been brutally  illtreafced and leffc for dead by the  Boers was found the following day.  Wauebnton. Sunday May G.���  Yesterday general Barton drove  from 2000 to 3000 Boers from their  positions at Roordian where they  awaited them. They retreated  after stiff fighting, leaving a number of dead on the field. The British casualties were slight, general  Barton is pursuing. Windsorton  and Klip Dam have been evacuated.  �� General Fagefe's brigade is attacking the "Boer "positionHat Warren ton.  Vet River, Sunday, May 0.���  Yesterday the British, after a long  march, encountered the Boeis holding Vet River, wifch six guns, two  being of long range, and an artillery duel ensued. Meanwhile geueral Hutton, after a sharp engagement, crossed the river on the lef fc  just before .sunset. The Boers retreated during the night,  Tho engagement yesterday was  strong and lasted from 0 in tho  morning until 4 p. m. More than  once the British infantry were  obliged to engage the Boers at close  quarters, and the Boers only retired when their retreat was nearly  cut off. The British losses were 5  killed and 25 wounded, mostly  Welsh Fusileers. The British took  a batch of prisoneers including the  Swedish ambulance, which they  allowed to return. The Boers iu  their hurry, left 13 dead. General  Paget made a strong demonstration  against the Boer position ea&t of  the bridge, thereby preventing Boer  reinforcements going to the assistance of their comrade1? in checking  general Barton's advance.  Vet Rivkr, May 6.-���General  Pole-Carew started afc daybreak  yesterday on a 19 mile march. He  first came into contact witJi the  Boers holding fche river afc 1 p. m.  Tbe British soon had two batteries  in action, and later they added two  naval nine-pounders, two seven and  two nine-inch siege guns. The  Boers fired wibh great accuracy. Ifc  is marvelous that no one on the  British side was hurt.  The British speedily engaged fche  Boers who enfiladed the dismounted |  men firing with maxims, but  eral Hutton pushed forward his  own porn-poin and .a galloping  maxim and forced ::,'the Boers to  leave the river bed. The encounter  was terribly hot. Later the whole  British force crossed the river  threatening fche Boer right.  WHAT THE GENERALS ARE AT  Nothing but Good News.  London, May 6, 7:04 a. m.���Lord  Roberts is making better progress'  than any one had dared to hope,  and is meeting with success at all  points. The only news of Winberg  is the incidental reference to it in  the dispatches from Vefc river describing general Pole-Carew's ojjer-  ations, but as tho latest news of  general Hamilton's operations on  Saturday morning was that ho  was then preparing to force the  difficult passage over the little Vet  river on the Bloemfontein-Winberg  road, there need be no doubt that  the news of the occupation is accurate.  The Boers, following their customary practice, had evacuated their  positions on the Vot river during  Saturday night. As lord .Roberts  is advancing along the railway and  general Hamilton, 20 miles to the  east, is threatening the* two wings  of the Boor forces, it would nofc be  surprising to hear that they had  also evacuated Winberg.' Gencial  Hamilton's advance will prevent  the Boer forces in the direction of  Thaba Nchu reinforcing their main  army near Winberg. General  Rundle on Saturday had arrived in  pursuit of the Boers seven miles  north of Thaba Nchu, compelling  the Boers to retire.  A Boer account of the capture of  Brandfoit says: "The federals, although weak.in numbers, offered a  strong'resistance, but they were  forced by the overwhelming numbers opposed to them, to evacuate  the town." * --._"��_.  General Hunter's progressT though  slow, is satisfactory. The idea that  the relief of Mafeking is in sight,  however, appears to have been premature, as the Boers in" that quarter are still stoutly resisting the  British advance. According to a  dispatch to the Daily Mail from  Cape Town, a special expedition to  the westward lefb Kimberley a few  days ago, and will endeavor to  reach Mafeking while general Hunter and lord Methuen are operating  on both sides of the Vaal river in  connection wifch lord Roberts.  From Lorenzo Marquez; come vaiious rumors that Plumer has been  reinforced and is again advancing  towards Mafeking. Another report  says that Mafeking .has been relieved, and general Lommer wifch  3000 Boers captured at^Fourfceen  streams  Women have been placed in fche  govei-nmentofjQccs in _the Transvaal  in order to relieve fche burghers for  active service.

SOUTH AFRICAN SITUATION  Review of the War.  Nkw Yohk, May 0.���In his cable  review of the South African war  situation, to this morning's Tribune,  filed at 1 a. m , Isaac X. Ford says:  " The advance of the British army  toward Winburg has been continued in two columns. Goneral  Hamilton with a mounted force was  twenty miles north of Hout Nek on  Thursday night after being engaged  with the Boers throughout the day.  The Thaba Nchu district has been  virtually emptied of Boers, only a  small rearguard with a single gun  being reported there today.  "General Roberts' forecast that  the Boer forces would be drawn  off from Thaba Nchu by a northward movement has been fulfilled  and he is acting under the same  theory respecting Olivier's commandoes at Ladybi*andt, persevering in his advance without wasting time in operating eastward at a  remote distance from his base of  supplies, and assuming that they  will ultimately be called to reinforce Delarey. Meantime the  mounted infantry, supported by  several infantry battalions, has  pushed on from Brandfort towards  the Vet river. ~'  "There was no official iiews afc  midnight. The Boers are nofc  likely to make a strong staud at  Winburg, although the ground is  favorable for defence. There is a  high line of kopjes between Ven-  terberg and Senekal, where South  "Africans familiar with the country  believe there will be no serious resistance. Roberts," with a broad  front of forty miles, will be able to  hold the railway to Smaldeel station and cut off the communications of Winbuig and Ladybrandfc  and Fickburg.  "The concentrations on the British side are uot fully known, but  the third division, Hart's brigade  and--Brabant's force, have remained  in the southern district of,the Free  State and the sixth division is apparently iu reserve "at Kilofonfceiu."  "Details of the operations in the  noithare still lacking. The Boer  forces retreating from Brandfort  did not exeeed four thousand, but  were probably doubled at Winburg,  where Dewet's commandoes were  massed.  "One British gun was disabled because of the bursting of a Boer  shell under the carriage, but otherwise there was little damage done  by tlie'artillery fiie afc Brandfort.  The Boors did nofc wait for the  British .infantry, bufc abandoned  their lines wifch little resistance.  "The Boers are described as despondent; and bewildered by the  xapidity and secrecy of general  Roberts' movements, bufc this is a  twice told Laic which is hardly  credible.  "The casualties in Hamilton's  division are very light and indicate  the caution _wifch _which_the _Boer  positions are approached. The  bulk of the work is done by the  cavalry and mounted infantry.  *' General Boberts takes pains to  compliment the conduct of Broadwood's eavahy brigade dining the  march northward from Hout Xek.  Broadwood's brigade was caught  afc ICooru Spi'uifc when seven guns  Avere lost, but the commander has  nofc been removed nor lias his force  been discredited. General Jioborts,  from motive-*--of his own, has overlooked Broadwood's responsibility  for that 10verse and has marked  him otib for favor.  " No details of Hunter's advance  are allowed to pa's the censor."  official quarters this morning that  on his arrival here that officer will  be appointed major-general commanding the forces. Major Drummond will, it is said, be promoted  to the rank of lieutenant-colonel  whilst in England on his way from  South Africa. The appointment  to the command is never made till  the officer selected has arrived in  Canada. The selected officer leaves  England merely "seconded for the  service. A curious light will, it is  claimed, be thrown on the. explanations in the house if a full return  of the correspondence between his  excellency lord Minto and Hon.  Dr. Borden is brought down to the  house. It is the general opinion  that the suggestion of the appointment, even to pressure, came from  government house.  AUSTRALIANSJO THE FORE  A Dashing Exploit.  Vet River, May 6.���The Boers  must have received about the same  time the news of general Hamilton's occupation of Winberg. About  sunset a detachment of 26 Australians, who had crept unseen towards  the liver bed, found themselves  near a kopje occupied by the Boers.  After firing, they fixed bayonets  capturing the kopje,  on tlieir own initia-  night fell. Early  it    was   discovered  and charged,  All was done  tive. Then  this   morning  that the whole Boer force liad fled.  The British discovered at every  hundred yards along the railway  small packets of high explosives  concealed. The Boers had destroyed  three bridges over the river  between here and Brandfort, but  in every case it was possible to  make a detour.  The Boers appear to be fighting  with much less t,pirit. It is reported that they are commanded by  general Lucas Merier.  The bridge over tho Vet river is  completely destroyed. General  Button has captured a maxim gun.  New Tug Launched.  The new C. P. R. tug builfc to replace the Kaslo was launched informally on Saturday. The craft  has nofc been named bufc she will be  christened within a day or so as the  officials have beon casting about for  a week or so to .secure an appropriate name. The tug is a staunch  and tidy little steamer and looks  particularly well just now while her  paint and varnish aie unsullied. The  master and crew will be selected ou  cuptain Troup's return and it is  probable that slie will be placed in  commission this week. She will be  u&ed as a "handy tug" around the  port and wifch the repairs and improvements to her engines, which  went through fire when the  was destroyed, av ill be a very  addition to the fleet.

London, May G. -The ' colonial  office, has received tho following  dispatch from sir Frederick Mitchell Hodgson, governor and commander-in-chief of the Gold Coast  Colony, dated Kumas&i, April 27th :  '���The situation, f regret to inform  you, 'has changed for fche worse.  On April 23rd, a force vuis .sent to  -.clear the rebel forces to the eastward. Four members of the constabulary were killed and a large  number of rebels were killed  or wounded. On April 15 the  Ashanfcis surrounded fche town in  great force, probably 10,000. and  made a determined attack. The  Houssas were obliged to evacuate  the cantonment and to concentrate  around the-fort. ���The -engagement  lasted four hours. Twenty of our  native allies and two horses were  killed. The present occupants of  the foifc number 548, inclusive of  18 Europeans, some of whom are  missionaries.  Sir Frederick Hodgson* under  date of April SOfcb, telegraphed:  "Yesterday a serious attack was  made on the fort by the rebels, bufc  thoy were routed on all sides with  great loss. Two members of the  constabulary were killed and ten  wounded.  "A contingent of Lago? constabulary, under inspector general Apliu  has arrived after two days' severe  lighting. The column was attacked  at Asagu which was taken with  the loss of one kil'ed and 23  wounded, among them Apliu,  slightly. On the following day the  contingent was attacked two miles  from Kumassi by 8000 rebels  and there was great loss  in taking the stockade across the  road. After desperate fighting the  Ashantis fled. Two members of  the constabulary were killed and  133 wounded, including assistant  inspector Head.

Kaslo, May 0.--[Special   to the  Tribune.]���The   fifteen   or twenty  houses and stores whicli are all that  remain of fire-swept Sandon had a  narrow shave from being destroyed  last night.   The niins of the C.P.R.  station  blazed  up.    Fanned  by a  strong wind, which came furiously  whistling up the gulch, some of the  half burinvd material got strongly  alight.    The firemen, who had been  working almost without break for  forty-eight hours, had to turn  out  again iu full force.    They had a  hard fight to save the buildings in  the upper end of the town, in wliich  were   huddled   scores of  families.  Prompt action  was  all that saved  the remainder   of the city.   Miles  Ram ban gh    of   South  Finch,   Ontario,  who  was  burned  to death,  was buried in the Sandon cemetery  this   afternoon.     Premier  Martin,  who was   speaking   in Greenwood*  the night of the fire, wired for full  details   and   today  the  provincial  government deposited $500 in the  Bank of Montreal, New Denver, for  the relief of Sandon.     The prompt  and   large-hearted   way in   whicli  outside towns   have rendered aid  has enabled the relief committee to  meet the emergency fully.  Stay Away.  Sandon, May 6.���To the Editor!  of The Tribune: Please insert an  advertisement for one week asking  mechanics, laborers, and all people  looking for business openings to  stay away from Sandon, as there is "  not accommodation or work for  those already here.  H. H. Pitts, Mayor.  Provide for Women and Children.  -  Hamilton  Byers, who" is at Sandon, telegraphs that the women and  children are badly in need of clothing, and that all donations, if left  at his  store in  Nelson, will be forwarded promptly.     The'ladies  of  the city are interesting them&clvc-*,  and a house-to-honee canvas  is being   made fdr   donations.     Mayor  Pifcfcs, in.auswer to a telegram fiom  mayor  Houston   stating  tJiafc  the  cifcy and  the people could be depended on  to contribute cash and  isiippJies.and asking what was need-" *  ed most urgently, returned thanks  for the kind offer and said'to forward  donations  afc discretion.    Ju  addition to the lisfc   published An  yesterday's - Miner,   fche   following ���  donations of cash and supplies have  been made:   Bank of Montreal $^50,  J. A.

Much of fche prosperity  with which Nelson has been Ijle^ed  in late years is due to the people of  the Slocan, and now that the people  of ono of  the  towns in the  Slocan  are in  distress  Nelson  must bbaw   that-she-is as" generous" a.s she  i��  prosperous,    Pinafore Tonight.

There should  be a thousand-dollar house, every  dollar ol which will go to .swell the  the relief fund.  The Nelson mint-trels will meet  at the opera house ou Tuesday  night for the purpose of organizing  an entertainment in aid of the  Sandon relief fund. A full turnout of all members of the company  is* particularly desired.

The Miner  thus adds insult; to injury. It is almost needless to say that the editor  of the Miner, in stating that mayor  Houston attempted to stuff the  voters' list, is simply maintaining  his reputation as a liar and slanderer, but even were the statement  true it is a poor defence for the  Miner to offer for the attempt to  disfranchise honest voters.

In the  Revelstoke riding, Tom Taylor is  said to be the accepted candidate of  the".Wilson Conservatives.   .When  t   he first announced his candidacy he  favored   amending the eight-hour'  law so that there would be freedom  of   contract; in   other    words,   he  favored   making the   law   a dead  letter.    He announces  now that he  has made an  investigation, and is  ���^convinced   that- the    law~ should-  stand in its entirety.     Sudden conversions are to be distrusted.    If  elected, Mr. Taylor, would be bound  by the decision of the  majority of  his  party.     if   his   party   gained  _, office, and a  majority decided   to  repeal the eight-hour law, he would  either vote  to keep his party in  office and  power  or   vote to turn  them   out   of   office   and    power.  Whicli would Mr.  Taylor be .likely  to do ?   Kootenay should elect six  men   to   tho   legislative   assembly  who would  vote as a unit,    it is  only by doing so that she can have  that influence that her interests aro  entitled to.  was without any of those vices  usually attributed to the mayor by  the editor of the Miner. In this  connection, it is worthy of note  that neither history nor fiction  supply an exact counterpart of the  time-serving "editor of the Mincer.  lie is something of a combination  of "Eugene Aram ancl Uriah Heap,  with all the redeeming qualities of  both eliminated. If he had served  his country one-half as faithfully as  he has done mammon, it would, be  better with him in this the hour of  his great extremity.  Tn_ Miner states that the 489  men whom George R. G. O'DriseolI  and���Robert���Corlett- and Charles  Henry Palmer have objected to are  no more entitled to exercise the  rights of British subjects than are  Mr. West's horses.  "Tin__rci3 was no intention, weare  sure,  to attack  the  name of   a  single   voter    that   was    legally  qualified, and as a matter of fact  they did not, for the qualification  was faulty   through   neglect to  " register within the time specified  " by   law."     So   said   yesterday's  Miner,  and   as  a   combination   of  gross ignorance and impudent misrepresentation   the    statement   is  hard to beat.   The names of hundreds   of   legally   qualified   voters  were attacked, but  in no case  on  the ground that  their  names had  not beeu registered " within the time  specified by law," for they were so  registered.    There   is no intention  to  seriously dispute  the right of  these men to havo a vote, but the  schemers hope, by taking advantage of a badly drafted amendment  to the Provincial Elections Act, to  postpone the trial of the objections  until it is too late for these names  to  go on the present voters' list.  The scheme will not succeed, but it  is a plot to prevent nearly 500  citizens from voting in one of the most  important general elections iu the  history of the province.  HUDSON'S BAY  COMPANY.

Is one issue the Minor, as -the  organ of the peddlers, says that  mayor Houston has no authority to  direct the city's business allairs,  and in the next issue, as the organ  of candidate Fletcher, says mayor  Houston is neglecting the city's  business in endeavoring to secure  to British subjects the right to  vote.   Th_ Miner lias departed from its  usual custom of likening mayor  Houston to Jack Shepherd aud  other celebrated highwaymen, and  now compares His Worship to that  harmless creation of Cervantes' imagination, Don Quixote.   The Don  Thomas FobTion, 'ex-speaker of  the legislative assembly, returned  to Nelson yesterday from a trip to  East Kootenay. Ho addressed  meeting* at Purine and Cranbrook.  So far there is little interest manifested in local politics, ami it appeared to Mr. Foster that there  would not be any great interest  until opposing candidates were io  the field.

Tub editor of the Miner, the organ of candidate Fletcher, says that  tho scheme by whicli ib is hoped to  cheat 489 voters out of their votes  is "a legitimate weapon of party  warfare."

SOME NOTES FROM LONDON  Tired of the War.  New York, May 0.���-Speaking of  foreign affairs in his London  cable  letter to   this   morning's  Tribune,  Isaac  N.   Ford,   says :      " Foreign  affairs escape observation when the  y>,  public is distracted with  questions  of  imperial   interest,     The  Berlin  fetes   are   welcomed   with  hearty  tributes from the English press  to  the  German emperor and the crown  prince.  Not only is there sympathy  for    the   emperor's   naval   policy,  Avhich lias beeu carried with a com-  ipromise that secures a great  fighting'fleet, but he is regarded as Eng-  ila ud's most useful friend abroad.  Little   is   said   iu    print   about  American    affairs,    but     without  doubt there is  a feeling  of disappointment over the divided public  opinion   in the  United   States  re-  ||     speetiug the war.     The  feeling of  ������''     discontent is reflected by the  public here.    Weariness of the  war  is  '���shown by the eagerness with wliich  fresh  interests  of   il  more  pacific  nature are sought.     Smart  society  how considers it almost as bad form  to talk about the Avar as to be dogmatic or deeply iu earnest.  The archbishop's decision on the  reservation of the elements of the  sacrament is regarded by the religious press as a turning point iu the  history of the English church. The  judgment utteily disallows a practice whicli ritualists consideis of  �����"itftl ituportauce, and this is done  on legal grounds because the matter was settled at the time of the  reformation and the decision has  never been reverted, it is uot yot  < lcar whether a stiong minority of  iireeoneiloble extremists will nofc  decline to obey the archbishop, but  the great majority of high church  clergy vv ill be bound by the decision whether with or without constraint of conscience.

The British auny has brought to  s nne of the most skilful generals a  ci op of dignities, wealth, and glory  for which no other profession has  any parallel.  Iu actual money the duke of Wellington's brilliant generalship yielded considerably over J?5,000,000 for  himself and his descendants, in addition to dignities and princely  presents almost beyond number.  After the great victory of A&saye,  in which ho crushed the Mahrafcta  power, gifts poured on him in lavish  prolusion, including a sword of  honor valued at $3000," tlio gift" of  the inhabitants of Calcutta; and a  b 10,100 service of plate, the tiibute  .of his army. .After the greater  .battle of Talavera- he received a  ' peerage and a pension *of $10,000 a  year for two generations..'"  Salamanca,    brought   him "  the  .thanks of parliament, a inartjuisate.  aiiid. a sum of .'������500.000, and a little  later the Commons   voted   him   a  further sum of $2,000,000 to inain-  _xaiir his  dignity-as a" peer.   The  crowning victory of Waterloo was  rewarded by an additional grant of  $1,000,000,    and   among   countless  other   rewards   were $300,000   in  prize money, a silver plateau, worth  "pyO.OOO from tho king of Portugal,  a statue in Hyde Park- which cost  another $50,000,'and a magnificent  sword from,the city of London.   In  addition  to these   substantial* rewards tWellington won within the  short space of live years a vi comity,  itii earldom, a marquisate, and a  dukedom, in addition to seven foreign titles, including one of prince.  The great duko of Marlborough,  . lie victor of .Blenheim and Ranii-  ].'__-*, reaped a rich harvest from his  .-oldicring.     Of diguitics   he  won  wi chhis sword a barony, earldom,  marquisate, a dukedom, iu addition  to  two titles of prince, all within  the  space  of seventeen  years.    A  pension of $20,000 a year was conferred on him and. his descendants,  llie manor of Woodstock was presented  to him by parliament, and  ihe  palace of Blenheim was built  for him by the queen's direction at  a cost  of a  quarter of a million  pounds.    As the duke's pension was  continued to   his descendants for  177 years^ his skill and valor, like  that of the duke of Wellington,  yielded more than a million pounds  Cable sterling.  Credits, But these two generals, the military geniuses of this and the last  century, stand absolutely alone in  the wealth of money their swords  won for them. To find a rival we  must look to the navy and lord  Nelson, who, in addition to large  parliamentary grants, won for his  descendants a perpettial pension of  $25,000 a. year.  Viscount Gough, the victor of the  Sikhs, thrice received the thanks of  both houses of . parliament, was  'made baron and viscount, knight of  St. Patrick, G.C.S.I., and privy  councillor ; and received in addition  to these honors, a pension of $10,000  a year from the government, and a  similar pension from the East India  Company.  Few soldiers, however, of any  country or century have reaped a  richer crop of rewards than the  present commander-in-chief, lord  Wplseley, or have croAvded so many  honors into a smaller compass of  time. In lS70'he was a plain colonel of infantry, with a distinguished record, ifc is true, but with little  to show for it beyond a fairly rapid  promotion in army rank.  Within eight years he had become a general, a Grand Cross of  St. Michael and St. George, and a  K.C.B.; he has been thanked by  parliament for"his "courage, energy  and perseverence" in the conduct  of the Ashanti war, and had received a grant of $125,000 and a sword  of honor.  Since then he has twice received  the thanks of both houses of jxirlia-  ment, was created: a viscount in  1SS5, and has since blossomed into  a knight of St. Patrick, a privy  councillor, a G.C.B., a commander-  in-chief, in addition to receiving  several honorary degrees from our  leading universities.  Even this astonishing record of  distinction has been rivalled, if not  eclipsed by lord Roberts. , The hero  of Kandahar has beeu mentioned  twenty-three times in dispatches  and has twice been thanked by  both houses of parliament, and on  many occasions by the government  of India. He lias won the Grand  Cross of three oiders of knighthood  ���the Bath, the Star of India and  the Indian empire . is a privy councillor and a knight of St. Patrick  and a baron ; has received doctor's  degrees from the four leading uni-  A'eisities in the United Kingdom  and the freedom of a dozen cities  and royal boroughs.  Ifc is quite possible that lord Kitchener may yet rival even such  marvellous records as these ; for a  man who at forty-eight has won a  peerage, a G.C.B., K.C.M.G. the  thanks of parliament and a grant  of $150,000, may reasonably be  expected to reap a A'ery lichcrop of  laurels  Imperial Bank of Canada  HEAD   OFFICE, TOUONTO.

In style, he, like Schaefer at billiards, is inimitable. Left-handed,  and having but slight use of a partially deformed right arm, De Oro  is the best bridge player in the  world. Unlike others���Slosson, for  i nstance���Avho use the instrument  well, he uses only the lower- notch  of the bridge, claiming thus to have  the advantage of more accurately  ciiing the ball.  Highly nervous, he talks almost  incessantly to some f riend .when his  opijonent is at play, but-never, does  he do a wrong thing in the line of  hampering an adversary. Better  for money than for fun, he tries  ahvays to have the championship  contests for more cash than the  rules provide for���$150 a side.  "Combinations'*   are   his   forte,  and  in  the   championship . match  with Peyton in 1S99 he gained.over  150   balls  through   smashing: the  bunch on what looked to be 10 to 1  shots.   When a player finds   five  straggling * balls  almost in  a row,  bangs across. the table, hits:" the  first,  and  drives   the   last    onto  the    "eight   ball,"   which. he has.  "called'' for end: pocket, and, after  all, the "eight ball", has to go nearly -"full" onto another ball several  inches from the pocket and- carom  slowly before finding  the hole, he  may be said to be a man who takes  long, chances.    Yet this De Oro did  when behind Peyton  on  the   first  night's play, and the successful execution  of the    shot : helped  him  along 42 balls.    In ways of ma'king  balls do strange things with this or  that tAvist pool has improved wonderfully.   Recently, De Oro showed  to an expert Avho was- nearly first  class  20  years ago  17 things that  tho latter never dreamed of.    In  tho   days    of     Wahlstrom,   "the  Swede,"  no one e\*er   thought   of  playing "15 or no count" for money,  and yet today some players nearly  up to such performances are easily  defeated by Grant Loy, who uses  only his light hand and is  barred  from any kind of rest whatever, and  the best amateurs are 40 balls in  100 behind Do Oro, according to hi^  oavu statement.   The Cuban "says,  hoAvever, that maybe Wahlstrom.  had , ho   continued    playing   pool,  might have been the best player  Avho   eA*er   lived,  as   lie   certainly  could do things with, the cue ball  impossible to any billiardist or pool  expert, barring none. It is interesting to note that both Wahlstrom  and De Oro learned to play pool on  a 0 -c 12 table.     The Cuban says he  has   seen a table 7 x 14, and two  and a half inch balls were used.   Sn  be the outcome of the Avar���important though that may be for the  peace of the Avorld and the prosperity of South Africa���sinks into  minor significance.  ORO   DENORO   MINE.  Rossland. Record.  Ross Thompson, who has just returned from a trip to the Oro De-  nqro mine in Summit camp, brings  news that a parallel ledge to the  one already developed has beeu uncovered on that property.  "We knew this vein ran through  our ground, for it showed in an  open cut on the railroad and Ave  have uoav stripped it at a point 300  feet west of the shaft. It has 20  feet of good copper ore and AAre are  now making an open -cut along it.  Work Avill. be started immediately  to extend the lower tunnel for a  distance of about 300 feet, where  we expect to tap this new ledge at  a distance of about 200 feet.  "Things are very quiet in the  Boundary country and are likely to  continue so until after the election.  The Knob Hill, Ironsides and B. C.  are still running full blast, but  most of the other mines are shut  down. The Grand Forks smelter will  be in operation as soon as the dam  is completed,-,but. ..this-has-been delayed by high AA'ater. They are  roasting ore and are connecting up  the AA'ater jackets of the furnapes."  TURNER AN   INQRATE.  Toronto Telegram.  It was good Canadian gold whicli  gave senator George Turner of  Washington the power to try and  embitter the relationship between  Great Britain and the United  States. The Le Roi gold mine  made Hon. George Turner a senator.  He might still have been struggling  to live ou his rank of brevet "jedge"  if the magic of British gold had.not  put him in the race for the United  States senatorship.  Tho personal experiences of senator Turner must testify- to the  liberality of British laAvs. Spokane,  the city which claims him as her  oavu, has been boomed by her contact with the mineral resources of  British Columbia. Yet senator  Turner cannot miss a chance to join  the other demagogues in an attempt  to sympathise with the Boers  against an empire which is the best  friend of his nation, and under  whose liberal laws he'.acquired-the-  wealth which dishonored the United  States senate Avith his presence.

The  CHAMPION   POOL   PLAYER.  Alfredo Do Oro, the champion 15-  ballpbol player, is now a man of  ;37ye;us ot" age, a handsome, well-  droo-iod fellow, carrying the clear,  oHa*c complexion of the Cuban race,  and endowed with the manner of a  gentleman descended from the dons,  ile is beyond doubt the best educated of all men known as "first-  class at anything played on a - billiard table, as he AA'as schooled in a  college in Xow York city.  It is now some J 5 years since, at  the games of 15-baIl pool played in  the public room*?, there was noticed,  tho figure of a trim young Cuban,  who1 was always ready' to bet the  coin, of which he had a pocketful.'  As no one knew his name he was  given the nickname of "Balbo," a  noted Italian murderer of the time,  and today De Oro is . so' called  by - many, of his, down-town  'friends. Always ready to play  at" anything for money, the sharks  led the Cuban a merry pace, and  before he received his education at  pool and poker he had exhausted a  couple of small fortunes. Turning  professional, much against the  wishes of his people, he has ever  since been tho foremost expert at  lo-ball pool, and eveiy medal for  the championship except ono held  by the late Albert Fvey, has died  on his hands.  Pool players do not last like billiard players, as an oagle eye is indispensable to the execution of the  long shot by which the game is  opened, and De Oro is probably the  oldest of the pool champions, unless  Cyril Dion, the first champion, oufe-  aged him. When De Oro is too old  to play pool there AA'ill most likely  be an end of professional matches,  as he is the one expert ahvays hav-  this connection it may be stated  that Ives always gave credit to  English billiards for his improvement at our stylo of game, and that  Schaefer advis.es amateur and professional to practice this style of  game.    POLITICAL RESULTS OF THE WAR.  Cuiient Histoiy.  -  Some of the political results of  the Avar��� in South Africa maybe  seen even while the struggle is still-  in progress.   Among them the most  important is the restored and augmented prestige" of the British empire   as a   military   -world-power."  The resources and energy displayed  in transporting 7000 miles over sea  a dozen army divisions Avithin a feAV  months, the bravery and  determination of the imperial and colonial  troops in the face of discouraging  difficulties and repeated   reverses;  the development of a great body of  veterans schooled in the realities of  war under tho most modern conditions���these are facts AA'hich have  ���dispelled the  rumors of   Britain's  retrogression to second rank, and  which make for her greater influence as a  poAA'er to be  reckoned  with in  the settlement of the important diplomatic issues uoav involving   the   nations    in    various  quarters of the globe.   Bub a far  more significant lesulb even than  these   is   the    revelation    to    the  world thai the British empire is a  unit.   Strong as had  been the ties  of loyal affection which bound the  colonies to the mother land,  and  througlrhcr to  one another,  these  ties h.ive been further cemented by  the blood Avhich has reddened veldt  and kopje, and have been idealized  and transformed  into unbreakable  bonds by the sympathy and fellowship of a common sacrifice. Compared with this rcsul&thc mere annexation of the Orange Free Stateand the  Transvaal to the indisputable sovereign domain of Britain, should that  new styles are very  strong" on checks, and the  young" chaps that cannot  be perfectly suited in these  goods are few indeed.

At the 200 yard range  the marksmen found tho target in good style, and  the day's scores would undoubtedly have been  large hud it not been for tho heavy rainstorm  which fell after firing at 500 yards was commenced. When the riflemen reached lhe liOO yard  butt the rain fell in such torrents as to hide the  target, rendering further practice out of tho  question.
