 DAILY EDITION   BY MAIL  FIVE  DOLLARS A YEAR  WEEKLY EDITION  BY MAIL  TWO  DOLLARS A YEAR  EIGHTH  YEAR.  SALISBURY'S GREAT SPEECH  Britain's Foreign Policy.  London,    May   0.���Tho   annual  grand habitation  of  the  Primrose  League was held in Albert Hall this  afternoon.     Lord  Salisbury,   who  presided, commented on the remarkable change which had taken place  iu the latter half of the century in  views of the people  regarding the  empire. They had formerly repelled  ic as a burdeu,  and  that  doctrine  had been carried to such  extremes  by a man of splendid genius���Gladstone���that it had produced a strong  reaction,  which  started  after  the  disaster  of  Majuba   Hill  and the  death of geueral Gordon.  The death  of Gordon had  been  avenged.    Perhaps it was too  soon  to say the great humiliation ot Majuba Hill had been effaced, or  that  i he great wrong had beeu   righted,  but he felt they were on the road to  accomplish-that .thing.    Under the  b-illiant guidance of  lord Roberts,  200,000 soldiers, a larger army than  had ever been sent across  the same  expanse of sea,  were now  engaged  in   reducing   to   obedience   to the  queen those territories which ought  never to  have   been  released and  restoring to South Africa the  only  chance it has of peace and  development and tranquility.  The premier referred to the difficult y and intricate .Irish problem  and said:  '\Mi\  Gladstone,  in  an  evil  moment for the fame of the country  and for his party, attached himself  to  the idea of  the separation  of  England and   Ireland.    There . has  been  a  long  struggle, but  no  one  can  say the home rule cause presents any elements of sanguine anticipation for the future.   It might  be said that the Irish idea would be  realized and  that Mr.  Gladstone's  aspicatious would be fulfilled.'  But  J   do   not believe  that the causes  which have once been well  beaten,  h a v& reappeared to any pin pose in  English history.    Apart, however,  from the fate of former struggles, I  am still assured  that  there is  no  h.ope   of   the predominant  power  ever   consenting   to   give   Ireland  practical  independence.*   We have  learned something from  the  South  Aft ican war : how a disloyal govern-  > ment, in spite of warnings, should  uC'iinnilate arms against the most  powerful combatant, and  thus  se-  NELSOK:  THURSDAY MORNING  MAY 10 J 900.  creation of rifle clubs. If only the  feeling could be inculcated that it  is the duty of every man to make  himself competent to meet an invading enemy, we would have a  defensive force which would make  the chances of an assailant so bad  that no assailant would appear."  After a resolution urging British  subjects to prepare in times of  peace so as to be ready for war,  had been carried by acclamation,  the meeting adjourned.  ZAND RIVER IS ABANDONED  Another Church for Nelson.  Within' a couple of weeks an addition will be made to Nelson's list  of  religious  organizations -. in ��� the  ,shape of a branch  of the  Congregational Church of Canada.    There  are in the city a number of persons  who are properly members  of this  denomination and the Canada Congregational Missionary Society has  decided to institute a church  here  at  once under  their direct supervision.     Rev. William Munroe late  of Montreal will  be the pastor of  the Nelson Congregational  Church.  He is a native of Embro,  Ontario,  and   is   twenty-five years   of age.  A couple of weeks ago Mr. Munroe  was ordained at Emmanuel Church  in Montreal and was authorized to  proceed to Nelson for the purpose  of opening up work and founding a  church  under  the  auspices  of the  church  to  which  he  belongs.    As  there is no  Congregational  church  here now "the call-' and request for  ordination  came from   Emmanuel  Church, of which  Mr.  Munroe has  long been a consistent- and active  member.    He is expected in Nelson  in a few days.  cure a terrible advantage. We  now know better than we did ten  years ago, what a rock it would be  if we had a government disloyal,  in Ireland, with the power of the  , accumulation of forces against this  ci-untry.  fMr. Gladstone shattered his own  pa rty so, that for the moment they  ji l o erased and a powerless factor in  English politics. But ifc must not  bo imagined that the effacement is  likely to bo permanent."  "Hereafter external affairs   will  occupy a considerably larger place  among fche problems we  have to  _ pclve.    Not-necessarily -because���iu  themselves they are more important, but if we look around  we can  .see fche elements and causes of menace and perils accumulating,  and  they may  accumulate  to such   a  point   as   to require earnest   and  most active efforts to repel them.  I  am nervous afc using language of  Mich a kind, lest it should  bo eon-  hfcrued as pointing out a particular  danger.    But S wish emphatically  to say T have no idea of the kind."  The Pretoria remarks were greeted   with  cheers.    Continuing  lord  Salisbury said:  **A certain  section of   our .sub-  jpets',  nofc   I   hope,   a   very   large  though a very noisy one,   has at  tho  present moment a very great  prejudice against this country.    Ifc  docs not, however, follow that  wo  have no precautious to take.   Governments may come and may go,  and feelings may change, bufc there  is that root of bitterness  against  England with which later we may  , have to reckon.   There can *��� be no  securing tho feelings or sympathy  of other   nations,  except  through  the efficiency of our own  defence  and the strength of our own right  ai in.  "Everywhere the power   of offence is increasing, and who knows  but; that all  these  things  maybe  united in one great wave to dash  against our shores.    As to land defence, so far as I can see, anything  in the nature of conscription is nofc  a remedy which the country is pre-  paied   to   accept.     Therefore   we  jnusfc induce people to voluntarily  juifc themselves in a position to de-  IViid their homes.     The Primrose  League can do much to foster the J  Reception at Washington.  Washington, May 9.���A meeting  was held last night at the house of  congressman Sulzer to arrange for  the   reception  of   the Boer   peace  envoys, how on their  way to the  United States from Holland.    The  meeting    included   a    number   of  senators and congressmen as well  as    Washingtonians.     It   decided  that,the Boer delegates should be  accorded   a   reception    similar   to  those tendered Lafayette, Kossuth  and Parnell.     A big demonstration  is  to be organized in their honor.  The grand opera-house has been  secured for Sunday, May 20th, and'  public addresses of a non-partisan,  nature will be delivered by prominent men.  Advance Continued.  London, May   9.���Although the  British expect considerable opposition afc the  difficult; drift   of   the  Zand river, the latest advices from  Smaldeel indicate that the federals  are not yet  ready to make a determined   attempt   to    stem lord  Roberts'   advance.      The   hitter's  front, indeed* is so wide and overwhelming in numbers that it is difficult to see how the Boers can help  being ousted out of Virginia siding  as they, were out of Smaldeel, even  if they elect to give battle.   The  same considerations would probably affect at Kroonstadt, hence the  general belief that little real opposition will be encountered south  of the Vaal.  The repairs to the bridges over  the Vet river and the Vaal are expeeted to retard the general  march from Smaldeel and Fourteen Streams for three or  four days, when general Buller will also be ready.  The general idea is that lord Roberts will direct his right on Har-  rismith in order to get in touch  with the Natal army coming through  Van Reenen's pass.  A dispatch from Maseru, dated  May 8th, says the Boers have deserted both Ladybrand and Ficks-  burg in- panicky condition, owing  to reports that the British had  occupied Senekal, thus threatening  complaint is made that the price of  paper   in-the  United   States has  been nearly doubled, and whereas  the association of American papers  has appealed to the congress of the  United States for relief, claiming  that the increase in price has  been  occasioned by a combination'of the  paper  mills  and  factories   of  the  country:   Resolved that the committee on ways and means fix the  last   Wednesday   of  May for the  hearing   of   such   complaints, aud  meanwhile that the   secretary of  the committee is directed to give  notice to such association of American   papers   and   to   the   various  paper  companies   and   pulp   companies of such hearing, rtnd fchafc the  secretary      of     the      committee  [ be     directed     to     call \ on   such  paper   companies   and   pulp  panies    to    file    with   dum  stock and   bonds   issued; by  companies, the total amount  by such companies for interest  on  bonds, dividends or  wages, to be  classified according to the amount  paid, and also statements showing  the total receipts for paper sold and  expenses of operation  during the  year."

Hutton Was Driven Back.  Smalldeel,. May 9.���Yesterday  general Hutton attempted to seize  a Boer convoy that was leaving the  Zand river.     He advanced:towards  the river with his infantry. A long  line of wagons was plainly visible.  On    becoming   aware   of   general  Button's object the Boers stopped  and opened fire.     They seemed in  great force and did a great deal of  havoc.    Presently mounted Boers  were seen crossing the dry lands of  the river bed., They circled to the  right and began to enfold the West  Australians' whilemany of theBritish  were hit by shells.   The position  became,serious.   The Boers sent up  reinforcements,   placing   the   Australians iri danger of being cut off.  Thereon general Hutton ordered a  retirement to Welgelegen, where he  had left his own convoy.   A portion of the forces advanced and engaged the Boers to cover their retirement,   which   was successfully  done.   The Boers continued to shell  the retiring troops, but showed no  desire to press the attack further.  Meanwhile the Boers' trains steamed  away north, blowing up culverts as  j they went  London, May 9.���At the banquet  of the Iron and Steel institution,  given  this   evening  at 'the   Hotel  J Cecil, sir W.  C. Roberts presiding,  Mr. G. J. Goschen, first lord of the  admiralty, responding. to the toast  "Army and Navy," said the government fully recognized that the finer  the troops sent out to battle: for the  country the greater was the obligation   to   provide   for   them    the  best   means    of '* success    Therefore, he   said, they   had   not   forgotten the manufacturer's of armor  plate and of implements of war, and  other   scientists   whom they   had  pressed into the ranks to aid in  solving the problem.     "We have  admirable competitors," lie said, "in  JHerr Krupp and iu the works at  Le Crensote and fche United States,  bufc we may rely on the inventive  genius and the pertinacity* of English manufacturers andhpli-viiisus fco  secure results which are so valuable  to the British  empire."    Mr.  Gos-.  chen denied the^ statements made  in the French chamber of deputies  regarding   the quality   of British  guns,   declaring that these  would  hit harder and had a greater bursting power than the French guns  * A Useless Proclamation.  London, May 10.���A dispatch to  the Morning Post from Ladysmith,  dated Wednesday, says: "General  Buller has issued a proclamation to  fche Dutch rebels who are willing to  surrender, notifying them that he  will recommend all who are willing  to surrender voluntarily for greater  leniency than those who continued  fighting after this warning. This  appears a futile measure to  them to surrender."  get  Insurrection in Ghinchou.  Victoria, May 0.���The steamer  Daiuy vosfcoek has arrived from Yokohama, wifch 300 Japanese, half of  which   landed   here.     Her officers  bring news of a serious insurrection  in Chinehou, China, on the line of  one of fche northern railways being  builfc by the British.    The English  engineers were attacked by fche insurgents and forced to flee for their  lives.    Troops   were   sent   to   put  down the uprising. i ,  Free Staters Surrender.  SiMALDHKL, May 8.���Large number .of burghers have come in and  delivered their Mausers and horses  to the British. They affirm that  there is a bitter quarrel between  the Free Staters and the Transvaalers, which is likely to end in  the speedy surrender of the former.  General French has arrived here.  Ordered to Ashanti.  Kingston, Jamaica, May 9.���-The  railitaiy authorities here have received a cable from fche British war-  office ordering all the available officers of the West India regiment to  proceed immediately by the shortest  route to Cape Coast Castle to join  ihe expedition against the Ashaniis.  U. S. Eight-Hour Law.  Washington, May 9.���In view of  the   recent   eight-hour   movement  throughout the country the report  made  to the house of repre&enta-  tives by chairman���Gardner of���fche  committee on labor on the Gardner  eight-hour bill and fche general subject of eight-hour legislation, has a  timely interest.   The bill requires a  clause in all government contracts  that the labor under the contract  shall not exceed eight hours daily,  and says: "Economists who advocate   the   eight-hour day contend  with   great   plausibility thai;   the  shorter day results in an increase  of wages   without an  increase of  price, as greater consumption enlarges production, and the larger  fche scale of production the cheaper  the given article is produced."   The  report presents an elaborate review  of eight-hour legislation  in all the  states,   and    previous    eight-hour  statutes enacted by the federal gov-  ernmen fc.  ' Sea Witch to Blame. -  London,* May 9.���The admiralty  has not yefc received an official  report in regard to the boarding of  the American ship Sea Witch by a  British warship while in Portugese  waters in Delagoa Bay, bufc other  government dispatches from   Lorenzo Marquez, incidentally mention  that tbe Sea Witch was in' trouble,  which combined with the fact that  she signalled for a tug, leads the  British authorities to believe that  the onus for fche mistake in boarding chiefly lies with the Sea Witch.  Stern Measures Adopted.  Cape   Town, May   9.���Ifc is  believed here that on the arrival of  theBritish afc the Vaal river a proclamation will be issued annexing  the Orange Free State to the Dominion of   tho queen and demonstrating the determination of the  queen's forces to assert  British supremacy over the   annexed terri-J  tory.   TheBritish losses at Brand- '  fori; are now reported to have been  much heavier  than   was first reported.     After  fche battle British  patrols visited the farmhouses in  tho-snrrounding~districfcs~~aiTd~a.il  the   meu   were    taken   prisoners,  while the horses and guns were removed.      Lord    Roberts   is   thus  adopting   a sterner policy wifch a  view of preventing guerrilla  lighting   iu   the   rear   of   the British,  Horses are now commandered and  farmhouses where guns are found  are destroyed, while tho men aro  arrested.  General Hutton's Advance.  London, May 10.���General Hut-  ton's mounted infantry brigade, including the Canadians, with a part  of general French's cavalry crossed  Zand river on Tuesday, and began  to work their way cautiously along  the railway northward in the track  of the retiring Boers. About 8000  horsemen were engaged in this advance.  General Hutton before he was  joined by a part of general French's  force had a sharp fight. ��� This was  on Mondayc when he reached the  river, and saw the Boer convoys on  the other side and pressed forward  intending to cross and capture  them.  The Boers opened fire with eight  gnus, seemingly in thousands and  sought to envelop the British. General Hutton fell back, the Boers  following until other cavalry reinforcements arrived. During the  night the Boers retreated, not further contesting fche crossing.  Lord Roberts, according to a correspondent, left Smaldeel on Tuesday to consult one of the Hamil-  tons, fifteen miles distant.  The Boer attack on general Hutton does not indicate any such conditions as have been alleged to exist among them. Nevertheless the  British advance rolls on steadily.  Generals Broadwood and Bruce  Hamilton have penetrated fifteen  miles beyond Wynberg,'.where, according to Boer advices, sharp lighting is daily occurring. There was a  brisk rifle engagement;; oiitside  Winburg on Saturday.  From Boer sources comes the report that iu a skirmish out of Mafeking colonel Baden-Powell was  slightly wounded.  Pi esident Kruger after his formal  speech on Monday said the  British  Avere prepared for" war in  1896, as  documents which the burghers had  captured   showed,   but    that' the  Transvaal to avoid bloodshed offered a seven-year  franchise and  then a five-year franchise.   Greati  Britain still demanded that war be j  declared and the republic at length  accepted the challenge, even should  the   British  enter   Transvaal and  take Pretoria, the Boors  will still  remain a free people.     Our trust is  in God and  we may be  confident  that he  will defeat the  jjowerful  generals."  United States consul Hay of Pre-,  toria was present when this speech  was delivered.   The raad continues  in secret session.  A dispateli credited to a semiofficial source in Pretoria says:  " The neutral powei s have delivered  a collective note to president  Kruger informed him they will hold  him responsible for the safefcy of  the mines, and will support England in enforcing compensation in  the event of their destruction.  States that they would like a settlement on three points: the recognition of their concessions, the payment of last year's subsidy of��2000  due under the 1889 concession, and  the payment of tbe claim for ��8175  for damages sustained during the  Spanish-American war. He added  that the British foreign office and  the British parliamentary oflieer afc  Washington were assisting them,  and that president McKiniey favored tho payment of the claims.  Smallpox Quarantine.  The   Dominion  authorities   now  have taken the smallpox quarantine  into their   own   hands, and   it is  understood, will establish a quarantine along the entire international I  boundary line from fche Atlantic to  the Pacific.

Forty supporters of the  party have expressed a willingness  to allow their names to be used afc  the polls, and from that number ii  representative   delegation   can   be  -  selected.    The Provincial  Parfcy in  this   riding   stands   not   only  fot">  principles,  but for  the   industrial  and commercial supremacy of Nelson.   Every man  who intends to-1 -  support the party should turn '.'put*  today and vote" for delegates.  Hooley on Top.  London, May 9.��� The Daily Mail  this morning asserts that the concessionaire to whom emperor Nicholas has granted the right to work  goldfields 8000 square miles in area,  in the Neertschinsk region of Siberia, fields  which are the czar's  private property, and have hitherto  been worked under the direction of  his private cabinet, is  Mr. Ernest;  Terah Hooley, the London financial  company promoter and speculator,  who came to grief in  the summer  of 1898 under sensational circumstances and who: narrowly escaped  prosecution on the charge of fraud.

Colonel Deniii-'on,  former president of the Canadian  society,   responding   to the   toast  "The imperial Forces"  referred  to  the seriousness of the question of  the country's food supply.   He said  that Great Britain ought not to be  dependent for this on foreign countries.    Colonel Dennison advocated  giving Canada, the Cape and Australia a voice iu  the settlement of  ".he peace conditions in South Africa  and urged the calling of ariimperial  conference as soon as  the  war has  ceased.

General Hamilton last  week  was  continually   in   touch    wifch   Botha's-  guard.      The .enemy   manoeuvred  field     guns     skilfully     to   check  general        Hamilton's    '   advance.  While      captain      Balfour     was  negotiating    wifch     tho    Landrosfc  for tho surrender of Wynberg, general  Botha  misunderstanding   the  envoy's   language,    threatened   to  shoot him, but fche landrosfc, rightly  interpreting the words, and perceiving that the British were in a position to bombard the town,  decided  to surrender.    General Botha  then  retired.     Tho  town    contained   a  large   stock   of   ammunition    and  grain.        Ifc   is  impossible  to   say  whether the Boers will dispute the  passage of the Zand river, but ifc is  known fchafc Botha has ten guns in  front of Hamilton, and that general  Delarey   has   six in front of   the  main advance.

The   walls   are   well  defined, and  wheu  the   Miner's  informant   leffc'-  the ledge had been stripped  for a  distance  of   about  20   feet. , Ifc  is  thought to bo the  same ledge thafc  was recently found on the 300-foofc  level of fche Velvet.    The mauage-  jnenfe_is .greatly .pleased with, the ���  discovery, as ifc reveals that the ore  shoot is  one of considerable length  and thafc it is of a high grade wherever it has been uncovered.

Close Down Only Temporary.  The Birdseye mine lias beeu  clobed down temporarily owing to  fche influx of surface water into the  workings, which it is impossible to  cope wifch without pumps. In  about a month's time ifc is expected  fchafc the surface water will have  run off, and then operation*; will be  resumed. The mine never looked  better than ifc does now, and fche  last assay from the ledge afc the  bottom of the shaft, taken just before tho close down, gave returns of  $ id in gold to the ton. Specimens  of the ledge brought to town show,  visible gold. THE TPJBTTNE:  NELSON" B.

After, holding a conference with  Smith Curtis, minister  of mines in  the  Martin  government, who has  been   in    Nelson    two    days,   Dr.  George A. B. Hall  has  decided  to  announce himself as an Independent  Liberal  candidate for member of  the legislative assembly for Nelson  riding.    Dr. Hall is a member of  the city council.      He   is   popular  among his friends, and while The  Trihune cannot endorse his candidacy, he will be given fair treatment in its editorial columns.

Ten days  ago, fche opponents of  the Provincial Party in  thi a riding  held several conferences in an effort  to unite on a candidate that would  be acceptable to the Conservatives  and Liberals who in  former years  supported the Robson-Davie-Turner  governments.   Six names were submitted to the conference.    Two of  the six are now announced candidates, namely, Frank Fletcher, who  has accepted fche nomination of the  Wilson Conservatives, and Dr. Hall,  who   has   accepted   a   nomination  from   Srazfch    Curtis   as   an   Independent Liberal follower of Joseph  Martin.   These two men were willing to fight the common  enemy���  .the Provincial Party���as a unit ten  The Wilson Conservatives have  Frank Fletcher in the field in Nelson riding and the Martiuites have  induced Dr. Hall to offer himself in  then* interests. The Provincial  Parfcy will hold a convention on  Saturday, afc which there will be  fiffcy delegates, representing every  precinct in the riding, to nominate  a candidate. So by Monday there  will be three candidates and the  -i  fight will be for blood.  A report comes from New Westminster that George Kennedy, late  editor of the Columbian of thafc  town, is to be the Martin candidate  in Delta riding. . Mr. Kennedy engineered fche Westminster People's  Party convention that declared  opposition to Martin ��� bufc time  works wondous changes iuj men  ambitious to hold office.  Standard fraction claims, south of  the well known Washington-Tdaho  group near fieaverton. During the  winter he has been diligently opening up this group, mainly by surface cross-cutting, which has exposed the ledge for 3000 feet. The  ledge will average three feet eight  inches of quartz in width, from  which a value of $S0 is not too high  an average. Of this amount $72 is  in gold and the balance iu silver  and lead. Two prospecting shafts  have been sunk on theledge,2S and 42  feet respectively. Both are in ore  thafcisiich. Mr. Kennedy is half  owner in the group and AVilliam  Nelson of Greenwood and Gormon  West of Beaverton each own a  quarter interest. Development  will be continuous all summer,  with three shifts. A. D. MeLeod,  with barrister J. P. MeLeod of  Greenwood, are the owners of the  City of Paris group, consisting^ of  the City of Paris, Stemwinder,  Wellington and Aspen claims. The  property is being developed by a  ISO-foot crosscut tunnel, which is  already in 00 feet. The tunnel will  tap the ledge at an approximate  depth of 200 feet. The surface  prospecting proved the ledge to be  a big one, measuring nearly 10 feet  in width, carrying arsenical iron  wifch gold and copper values. The  group is considered one of the best  up the West Fork.  Fishing Season of 1900  We are selling the fishing tackle which entices  the fish.

Government Ownership of Patent Rights  Mining ami Scientific Pievs.  Some time ago the New Zealand  government bought���the���cyanide  patent right*-- of fche Cas&el Gold Extraction Company for $50,000 and  is charging user.*** thereof in that  colony 1) per cent royalty on their  gold output. The Victoria government now proi)t>.se-> to buy the same  rights for that colony from the  Australian Gold Recovery Company, for $100,000, recouping itself  by a royalty charge of 2 per cent.  With two exception?, the present  royalty charged by the Gold Extraction Company in the colony of  Victoria is .I per cent. The Victoria  minister of mines ligurcs that iu  five years the impost of 2 per cent  will be abrogated and the use of  the process be made free to all  therein. Jn a paternal way those  governments try to encourage the  mining industry. The South Australian government (OAvner of its  railways) allows a rebate of one-  thini the regular freight charges in  -���the transportation of machinery  for the ua*e of new mines, and makes  a similar reduction in freight  charges on the first fifty tons of ore  sent away from a new mine.

My last  I letter (to Beveus) was written be-  J fore reaching Singapore. We  ', -fayed there a little over 24 hours;  .). u fc long enough to get some  idea  * of what the tropics are like.'Singa-  j pore is an island at the  south  end  of the Malay Peninsula, and is the  , most southerly point we  reach  on  ' 1 he trip.    It is 77 miles north of the  Equator,       The     temperature    is  about the same all  the year.    The  thermometer   seldom   roaches   100  . degrees in the shade;   but the  ex-  ,; trcnie humidity of the atmosphere  ^ makes  it very oppressive.    About  '. the   first   thing  that    strikes  the  4 tenderfoot from   the   more frigid  j latitudes is the  limited nature of  j the natives' wardrobe.    The coolies  l] of laborers  usually  wear nothing  but a breech-cloth.     The women  aio somewhat better protected ; but  K'the children up to  seven  or  eight  ..;. cars old adopt the 'same _style of  h di ess wliich prevailed with our an-  Vi costors ' in   the   garden ' of Eden;  If omitting the fig leaf.     The natives  [Jaie a dark chocolate color, some belling almost black.    Cocoanuts, piue-  hiipples,  bananas,   mangoes ' and  a  II host of other tropical fruits  that I  i.e\ er heard  of  before, are every-  'where in evidence.    Nearly all  the  |'i|i'eight-hauling and draft work is  Irdono with oxen.  We left Singapore on  the 28rcl  |"*]*Vbruary and the next  day  called  'at Penangj situated on an island of  <��� the same name on the west coast  |,noith   of Singapore.     We   stayed  there six hours, long   enough  to  ih ive around and see the  principal-  places.   After four more days  of  monotonous sweltering we anived  a t Colombo on the 28th February.  Since   we entered  the   tropics we  [.have  l:adr uo winds.     The sea is  jUaiially lilco a mill-pond.   We spent  four days in Ceylon going as far as  Kandy, which is 7-1-miles in the in-  tt'iiorr - We   visited    the-famous"  'botanical  gardens  at   Peradeniya,  'ih.ee miles from Kandy, said to be  'the   finest   in   the   world.   Every  'tropical  flower, plant  or  tree  can  be found there.     All those spices  arranged on the shelf in the Tre-  ni'jnfc kitchen are to be seen grow-  ig in this garden.  There is a place  hout a mile from  Colombo called  Cinnamon Gardens, where yon can  pinell cinnamon in   the air, and if  you  break a twig off the bush ifc  Smells   Very   strong.      There   are  5omo very delightful drives around  Colombo.   One can drive for miles  through cocoanut groves^all sorts  of palm, banyan, mango and other  II ees which you don't see in Nelson.  We left Colombo on March 4 th per  .*���_������. Valetta for Calcutta, where we  anivedonthe 10th after another  ii ueventful sea voyage.  We found our brother at Khubua,  K-9 miles from Calcutta, and spent  i-it very pleasant days with him.  lie went one day to examine some  schools at a place 18 miles away  and  look us along.    We   had   to  , walk the last six miles, and a very  > hot  walk ifc was.     We drank the  'contents of 18 green eocoanuts during the day.   They cost 2 pice, or  ; one cent   each.    You can see by  'thafc that drinking is  nofc an  ex-  ; pensive luxury.   When we got dry  | a. o called afc the first; homestead,  1 and, after our brother had stated  ' our ease, one of 'them would walk  j u[> a   eocoanut   palm   and   throw  ' down  as   many as required.   My  ������other    reads   and   writes     and  preaches to  the natives   in their  own language, which in  that part  of India, is Bengali.  We  returned  to   Calcutta, and"  J.! I  then took a trip 379 miles north to  Darjecling, which is a British military station and a summer resort  where  the bloods of  Calcutta go  during  the  summer  to escape  the  terrible heat of the plains.   It is  situated   in   the   foothills   of  the  Himalayan mountains,   7000    feet  above sea level.   The climbing is all  done in tho last  45 miles, and it is  easily the most   enjoyable  ride 1  ever had.   The Darjeeling & Him-  alyau R. R. takes  you  the last  51  miles.   It has a 24 inch guage and  the engine and cars look like  toys.  One car is supposed to accomodate  12 persons.    In 51   hours, including  stoppages (two stops are made for  meals besides watering the engine  many times) you  travel 45  miles,  rise   to  an   attitude   of  7407 feet  dropping again to 7000  at  Darjeeling.    For loops and switchbacks ifc  beats   anything I  ever   heard  of.  Some of the loops have a diameter  of uot over 100 feet. Some very large  tea estates are passed on the way.  We got up afc four in the morning and rode' horseback to Tiger  Hill,  seven  miles from  Darjeeling  and 8300 feet above tho sea.    There  Ave saw the sun rise on the eternally  suoAvcapped Himalayas,   Kinchen-  juuga (28,150 feet) the second highest peak in the world,  lay 40 miles  from us  as  the  crow flies, in full  vieAv.    Mount Everest (29,002 feet)  the highest peak,  ou a  very  clear  day   can   be  seen  from  the  same  place, but Ave could not see it.   It  is about 70 degrees  to the Avest of  Kinchenjunga, that is, looking from  Tiger Hill, and is 109 miles distant  in a bee line.  The plague is raging in Calcutta.  The death rate is 200 a day or  more, and the plague is responsible  for a little over half. We visited  the burning ghats in Calcutta  Avhere the Hindoos burn their dead.  It is a walled enclosure about 25 by  50 feet, without a roof, situated  on the bank of the Hoogly  river. About 120 bodies arp burnt  there daily. Each body has a separate fire. They lay some kindling  and cordAvood on the ground over a  little hollow to give it draft/ plaeo  the body on ifc, and fchen more Avood  on top and touch ifc off. When I  was there tAvo bodies Avere brought  in and half a ' dozen others Ave re  laying smouldering in different  stages of cremation.  ' We started for Bombay on the  22nd and Ave visited all those places  historically" famous from the part  they played in the Indian mutiny  of 1857 and walked 'over many a  scene of massacre and bloodshed.  It would take a week to tell yon all  I saw in India. I am very sorry I  could not spare at leasb another  month. Ihad'iiot time to digest  what I saw.

What may be the result of mining  enterprises intelligently directed  and backed by Avilling capital cannot be measured at the present  time. If reports coming from that  country even approximate the  truth, the Avhole area of its partially  explored domain abounds in a mineral wealth, the value of wliich  reaches figures beyond the comprehension of the finite mind. Its copper alone would pay the debt of  every nation upon the globe, and  not a pound has yet been taken  from its vast storehouses of the red  metal.  Arizona is reputed to contain  stalwart mining propositions. It is  held that territory has the largest  and richest copper and gold mines  known in the country. It is certainly a land of vast mineral deposits Avhose extent and Avealth are  unmeasured. Noav Mexico has its  embryo bonanzas Avhose millions  are still sleeping beyond the vision  of mortal man, but Avhich have their  heralds who, like John the Baptist,  are crying aloud their virtues in  the most inaccessible wilderness  which surrounds them. Those  southern territories Avhich Avere  to be the undisturbed  places of Comanches,  gieasers and fleas, may  to the front with the  caves,   opened   by   the  GREAT MINES AND ENTERPRISES  Btltte Mining World.  The world abounds in magnificent  mining possibilities. The Avork of  developing the promising resources  supposed  resting  Apaches,  yefc   come  Aladdiu's  mystic   "sesenie"   spoken by   the  brawn and   muscle of   intelligent  labor.   The   possibilities of  those  two sparsely settled territories are  still unmeasured.  Coming nearer home, the great  states of Colorado and Utah hide a  mineral wealth, the extent of which  can-be surmised alone by the millions of treasure they have already  yielded,    but   which    are   simply  earnests of the uncounted volume  yet untouched.   Idaho, Oregon and  Washington abound, if we can believe what we hear, Avith mines, the  permanence, extent aud riches of  each of which, exeell those of the  famed   El j Dorados   of California,  But Montana, the first in mineral  output of the great west and north-  Avest,  speaks  for   itself.     Though  over the third*of a century of age,  its 146,000 square miles of mineral,  agricultural and grazing lands'have  been fretted by the miner's pick  and shovel in the slightest degree  alone.   It will require years krdis-  turb the lowest levels of its discovered and undiscovered mineral de'-  posits., The same may be said of  those of every other state and of  every territory named in thisv article.   When in the fullness of time  capital   shall "be j brought to bear  upon their hidden treasures, when  enterprise shall beineited by its sve-  Avard and Avhen labor and its appliances shall be skillfully directed,  then the world will see the underground cities throughout the land,  described by the British Columbia  exchange in the following excerpt:  "Under   the   eifcy   of    Calumet,  Jiich.,^ _says   the    Exchange, ���^is  another city, the underground Cal-  trmefc & Hecla,  which is truly as  much of a city as thafc on the surface.   From 3000 to 4000 men live  there half their time, and it is al-  Avays   inhabited.    Its   streets   are  called shafts,   and   its   lanes   and  boulevards are called "drifts" and  "stopes." During the day thousands of mineis are at work there.  They go down in the mine at early  dawn, and live a mile or so from the  surface for twelve hours. During  the night othor men, an equal number of them, take their places, and  all the time thousands of men are  constantly inhabiting the underground city. They take their meals  Avith them, and eat in the main  street or in a nook in one of the bystreets. Only on Sunday is the city  almost deserted, but even then the  police are on guard, and the pumpmen are on duty."  When enterprise shall have reached   its   full   stature, when underground mining shall be limited only  by the impossible, when the Creator  of this great universe shall interpose    a    barrier    containing   the  legend, "Thus far thou shalt go and  no farther," the earth Avill bo full  of people living Avithin its bowels,  delving and sending to the surface  the metals which the inhabitants of  the sunlit earth   Avill mould   and  fashion to the requirements of an  advanced civilization.   The  Avorld  is only in its babyhood in mining.  The earth is 8000 miles in diameter.  Its   inhabitants   haA'e   penetrated  only to the vestibule of its vast underground storehouses of treasures.  Our mining shafts and tunnels simply  creep   along   at the   surface.  They have not touched the sanctum  sanctorum of the underground temple of wealth.   When they do at  least one-third of our population  will abide underground as comfortably as they iioav do on its surface.  DON'TS  TOR ..DANCERS.  Don't imagine that you and your  partner are the only couple in the  room, bufc have some regard for the  toes and dresses of'others.  Don't romp. The habit is infectious and a ballroom will speedily  become a beer garden.  Don't Avaltz Avhen others are  dancing a polka, and don't indulge  in fancy steps when you should be  walzing.  Don't   dance   too   many dances  Avith the same partner, or yon Avill  become conspicious.  Don't dance only with your  fiance if you are an engaged girl���  unless he objects, of course. Engaged couple-, should be unselfish in  a reasonable degree.  Don't be deceitful. If you have  promised some one a dance and he  comes to claim it, fulfill your  promise.  Don't Avear too long a dress, or  you Avill be a source of discomfort  to yourself, your partner and the  company in general.  Don't; wear tight shoes, or you  will never dance gracefully.  Don't show off, but let your demeanor be quiet and ladylike.  Don't leave all the Avork to your  partner.   Adapt your style to his *  Don't get a reputation for "sitting  out" dances.   You will be put doAvn  as a flirt.  Don't criticise other people's  style of dancing when you are likely  to be heard, and take care to whom  you make such remarks, or you will  be certain to offend some one's sister  or brother.  Don'fc hum the air- the musicians  are playing.    It is bad form.  Don't SAA'ay to and fro before beginning fche first; steps of a Avaltz  Avhile the first bars of music are be  ing sounded.   Begin   decisively afc  once.  Don't dance after you begin to  feel giddy.  AMERICAN  AND  EUROPEAN  PLANS  Wholesale  Houses  NELSON  B.C.
