 DAILY EDITION   BY  MAIL  FIVE  DOLLARS A YEAR  WEEKLY EDITION  BY MAIL'  TWO  DOLLARS A YEAR  EIGHTH YEAR  NELSOK:  FRIDAY MOOTING   JUNE 8 J900.  PRICE FIVE  CENTS  f  INTERVIEW WITH OOM PAUL  '.>t    Safe in a Railway Car.  London, Juno 7.���The executive  oflicers of the Transvaal government are in a railway carj shunted  on a switch at Machador station.  President Kruger caused the interior of the coach to be reconstructed  Eomc time ago with a view to contingencies that might arrive. The  correspondent of the Daily Express  who went from Lorenzo Marquez;  to see president Kruger was received yesterday. The president  sat smoking a pipe. He looked  worried, but his bearing was quiet  and-determined. He did not make  Hie least objection to an interview.  r / Tiie correspondent was equipped  *-������ for the interview by cable from  London.  '���Fes," said president Kruger, "it  is quite true that the British have  occupied Pretoria. This, however,  does not end the war. The burghers are fully determined to fight  to the last. They will never surrender so long a^> 500 armed men  leinain. 1 feel deeply encouraged  by the fine work president Steyn  and general Dewet aro doing in the  Free State."  The correspondent suggested  that the war a\u& over, inasmuch as  the capital was takeu.  "The capital." exclaimed Kruger,  Avith energy, "what is a capital? It  dot-s not consist of any particular  collection of bricks and mortar, any  fool can make a capital of bricks  itnd mortar. The, capital of the  lepublic, the seat of the government, is here in this car. There is  no magic about auy special site.  Our country is invaded, it is true,  but it is not conquered. The government is still effective."  deferring to the reasons why he  left Pretoria, president Kruger said;  "I was not foolish enough to be  taken prisoner. I provided this  means of locomotion for ��� the same  reason as" our" burghers supply  themselves with horses when they  take the field. -It is necessary 1  should be able to move quickly  from place to place, that is all. By  And'by this car will take me back  to, Pretoria. For the present it  enables me to keep away fiom Pretoria, where I could bo of no service, and where I could only play  iuto the hands of my enemies."  "They say, Mr. Kruger," remarked  tho correspondent, "'that you have  1)fought with you gold valued at  ��e^000,000."  '���It is not true,'' replied tho president. "Whatever monetary resources I may havo with me are  simply those which we require for  st ite purposes. Atthe same time,  I" am not going to tell where our  treasure is. Let lord Roberts find  it, if ho can."  ���'Thoy say that you will take refuge iu ' a Dutch man-of-war at  Lorenzo Marquez."  '���That again is a lie," retorted the  president. "'JL know of no Dutch  man-of-war. I iim not going to  t?ike~refuge any"place. Fsha.ll not"  leave my country, there is no need  of my doing so."  The correspondent then sajd:  '���There is much surprise at you  having left Mrs. Kruger behind."  "Mrs. Kruger is quite safe in Pre-  toiia. She would only be put to  p-jrsonal inconvenience here. All  communication between us is stopped, of course, but sho will await  my return with calmness aud courage. She is a brave woman. lam  here waiting further information.  We are surrounded by faithful  burghers and are quite calm. You  may depend on it, the war is not  over."  "Guerrilla warfare will continue,"  remarked "secretary Reitz, "we intend tp fight to the bitter end and  shall probably retire on Lydenburg  where we can hold out for many  months."  '���Yes," observed Kruger, "it is  only now that the real struggle  has begun. I fear there will be  much bloodshed, but tho fault is  that of the British government."  Then, raising his voice to an almost passionate height, Kruger exclaimed :  "The time has passed for us to  talk. We have done plenty of  that, but it has done us no good.  There is nothing left for us to do  but keep on fighting."'  The correspondent who secured  flic interview telegraphed it from  Machadorp station where the wires  were working as usual to Lorenzo  Marquez.  The Daily Express, in commenting on the interview refers to the  nabated defiance of the chief of  hundred  prisoners arrived Tuesday at Nooit-  gedacht. They are penned in a  barbed Avire enclosure of four acres  ou the open veldt.  According to a dispatch from Lorenzo Marquez, dated yesterday,  lord Roberts is reported to have intercepted two trains leaving the  vicinity of Pretoria. Telegrams  from the British side say that Mrs.  Kruger is still occupying the presidency, and that a number of engines and cars have been secured.  The British captured a. machine  gun and caused the Boers heavy  loss. The British casualties Avere  slight.  Boor officials removed ��300 in  gold from the National- bank on  Jnne 4th, .but did not touch the  cash holdings of the other banks.  Some of the Boers are surrendering  voluntarily and the townspeople of  Pretoria are described as showing  considerable enthusiasm over the  British arrival.  The British officers at Daaspoort  refused to leave their quarters and  made the Boer commandant a prisoner, releasing him at midnight, on  condition that he Avould cancel the  order for removal of prisoners. The  Pretoria forts were found without  guns. All the artillery had been  got away.  A dispatch says : "Sixteen hundred British prisoners were removed. After the government had  taken aAvay most of the stores, the  burghers Avere given a free hand to  help themselves. All the British  found Avas a few hundred bags of  coffee and sugar."  CHINESE SOLDIERS AFRAID f  British Land a Strong Force.  London, June 8.���A special dispatch from Shanghai dated 7:30  p.m. today says the dowager empress has ordered general Neih Si  Chong with 3000 men to protect the  railroad at Pekin. A severe fight,  it is added, had occurred with the  Boxers Avhose ranks include many  soldiers from other general commanders. When the battle was  ended -200 dead were left on the  field. The dispatch goes on to say  ISO British, marines Avith a machine  gunare about to force a passage  from Tien Tsin to Pekin. Altogether about 900 British have been  landed' from the fleet, a greater  number than have lauded from the  combined vessels of the other  powers. This evidence of Great  Britain's intention to assert her  position strongly gives great satisfaction here.  Kruger's New Home.  Elmira, NeAV York, June 7.���It is  reported by the Canton, Pennsylvania, Sentinel that president  Kruger, if he succeeds in evading  the British, will locate in or near  BroAvnlee, Pennsylvania. Henry  Malle, who is a relative of Kruger,  lives in Brownlee, and he wrote  Kruger at the breaking out of the  AArar inviting him to locate there in  ease eventualities made it necessary  for him to leave the Transvaal.  Malle recently received a letter  from Kruger accepting the invitation, _and representatives of the  Transvaal have made inquiries concerning the prices of farms ia the  vicinity of Brownlee, which has  large number of Dutch residents.  Kefuse to Tight.  London,   June   7.���Telegraphing  from Tien Tsin, under date of June  Oth, a correspondent says :  "I left Tien Tsin by the rail route  for Pekin, accompanied by general  Nieha, supposed to be one of the  best Chinese generals; with sixty  troops.   'We proceeded to Iofa, a  distance of 31 miles. We found the  platelayers' cabins  in flames   and  telegraph poles cut and men engaged in destroying others in villages near: the railway, where the  flags Ayere seen bearing the inscripr  tion :   ������.-���''.���      _��� ���  " 'Kill all foreigners.'  "I'"saw   smoke,   evidently   from  burning houses, in the distance, but  general -Nieha refused to proceed  further, being in mortal fear of the  Boxers,,   though     the     foreigners  tried to persuade him to disentrain  his   troops,   who   are firmly   convinced that it is useless to fight the  Boxers, as other Chinese say they  have seen Boxers  hit Avith  bullets  rise and run away.  "There seems little prospect of a  resumption of traffic to Pekin, unless the foreign powers assume control of the railway, until the Chinese government proves itself capable of making communication  with its capital."  Neav York, June 7.���Senator Depew, in an intervieAv concerning  the position of the United States  toward China, says in the World  today:  "The European nations may encounter acute diplomatic conditions in China, growing out of Russia furnishing an army.toput down  the present revolution, if it may be  called such, in China because the  Russian army never leaves any  place where it once seizes a foothold. The United States is^iot interested, excepting iu so iar as the  pi'otection of its missionaries and  merchants is concerned. ' It is .immaterial to us whether Russia or  Great Britain or Germany, or all  thi ee with ourselves, put doAvn this  effort to drive out foreigners and  thus isolate China'. Thfe . understanding which we have with all  European nations secures us all we  desire, which is not territory, but  the open door."  vaal from Southampton on Saturday. Cannot a public notification  be issued warning the people  against a premature return here ?  They will be delayed at Cape ports  and will only increase the numbers  supported by charity. It must be  a couple of months at least before  the bulk of'those now in the colony  and Natal can be alloAved to return  or work generally can be resumed."  RUMORS FROM SEAT OF WAR  SPORTS ON DOMINION DAY  LeRoi Compressor Plant.  Rossland,   June   7.---Before  compressor has  a  Town Wiped Out hf Fire.  Duxutii, Minn., June 7.���A fire,  Avhich started in the Moon & Kerr  Lumber Company's mill at Virginia, Minnesota, at noon today,  spread rapidly and it was reported  at 2 p.m. that the town had been  entirely burned out. Virginia Avas  a settlement on the Mesaba Iron  range., The business portion which  was entirely destroyed before the  Avires failed consisted of eight  blocks of substantial brick buildings. All communication Avith the  place has been cut off by the destruction of the telegraph office,  and it is impossible to 'say whether  any liveb have beon lost.  German Marines for Tien Tsin.  Ber rjn, June 7.���The officer commanding the German squadron at  Chet'oo has been directed by cable  to send a detachment of sailors and  marines to Tien Tsin, and, after  conferring with tbe German minister at Pekin, to arrange with the  commanders of the other squadrons  regarding further measures to be  taken for the protection of Europeans.    u  lhe  Transvaalers.     Nine  Congress Adjourns.  Washington, June 7.���Congress  adjourned sine dio at 5 o'clock this  afternoon. The conclusion of the  work of the senate was quiet and  perfunctory, and was attended by  no exciting scenes such as are often  incident to the close of a session  when the gavel fell.  its  second 40-drill compressor has all  arrived from Sherbrooke the LeRoi  Mining Company is calling for tenders for a third compressor of the  same    capacity,   which    will   be  needed as soon as the contract can  be let and the machine built and  installed.   There are  now in   use  one dO-drill and one 12-drill compressor,   and   the   second   40-drill  machine   is   now   on' the ^ ground  being installed.   Two carloads of it  haA7e not arrived, but as they include   the   parts   which    will   be  needed last, they Avill not delay the  work of installation. "When tho now  compressor is in   operation   there  will_ be   capacity    for    92    drills  but it is proposed  to .then lay off  the   12-drill   machine,    except   in  emergencies, on account of the high  cost of operating it compared with  the   larger   machines.      This Avill  leave SO drills which will be about  enough to operate tho Le Roi mine  to its full capacity when the new  hoist is in operation  and at the  same time to carry on the development of the Josio No.  1" and the  Nickel Plate.    It Avill not be very  long before all three of these mines  are sufficiently developed to  Avar-  rant their  beginning   to   produce  ore;   in fact  they could produce  now    if    they    had   the   proper  railroad    connections.   Additional  power for drills Avill then be needed  in the stopes   of the   three   mines.  ���Forty more drills  Avill not be   too  many if the Le Roi is to be kept up  to its full producing capacity and a  safe reserve of poAver is to be provided.   The   B. A.  C.   mines   avi'II  then   have   compressors   for    120  drills, leaving out of consideration  the 12-drill machine, which Avill be  held in reserve.   The neAV machine  Avill give the B. A.   0. the   largest  air   compressing plant   in   Canada  and there will be feAV larger in the  United States.  Provisional Program.  The   general committee   of.the  Dominion    Day _  .celebration    had  ���several complaints.before them at  their yesterday afternoon's session  from parties whose special sports  had received no appropriation. The  committee   decided   that    if   the  organizations referred to will raise  some extra money themselves, the  committee will help them out,, if  they have to dig up themselves.  The Nelson Rifle company is doing  this, and will contribute $80, and  this amount Avill be supplemented  -by the committee so that both the  Rossland and Kaslo companies may  be   entertained.      The  committee  hopes that when all the money is  in, there Avill bo plenty to go round.  The general program of the celebration Avas also provisionally decided upon.    The Iirst event Avill he  the baseball game at the r.eereation  ground at 11   o'clock ou Monday  morning.   The regatta will begin  at 2 p. m., when all aquatic events  will be pulled off except the finals  of the local fours and the Vancouver-Victoria-Winnipeg   race.       In  the evening at  7 o'clock the hose  reel race and Avet test will take  place, and after that,  at 8:30, the  ilium inated trades ^procession.  On Tuesday morning will be the  bicycle races and Caledonian sports,,  and at 2 p. in. the remaining Jboat  races will be rowed. The next  event will be bhe final ball game  for the championship of the Kootenays at 3:30, and at 7:30' there Avill  be a tug-of-war. The celebration  closes the same evening with a  grand Avater carnival, with illuminated boats, fireworks, etc.. a sight  Avhich will be even lovelier than  last year's.  No provision has, apparently, yet  been made for a drilling contest'.  This has been a feature of all former celebration*, and one in wliich  many take great interest, especially  the miners. It is to be hoped that  room Avill yet be found foi\this  eA'ent.  Wolseley and Lansdowne.  London, June 7.���In the absence  of anything from Biitish sources  regarding the Boer statement that  general Buller requested a three  days' armistice, the military experts here are inclined to believe  that a revised version of the story  will show that general Buller summoned the federals to surrender or  evacuate their positions within  three days, failing Avhich he would  attack them.    ,.'.'.,'.  According'to a dispatch from Lorenzo Marquez, under date today,  the Boers under -General Botha are  recohceutrating in the neighborhood of Hatherly, 15 miles eastward  of Pretoria.  Prom the same source it is reported that the British prisoners  are being removed to Nooitgedacht,  an unhealthy spot in Langs Valley.  About 300 men arrived there June  5th, and 700 reached the place June  Oth. These probably constitute the  portion of prisoners, Avhich lord  Roberts reports, had been shifted  from Watervaal.  The strained relations between  the secretary of state for war, the  marquis of Lansdowne, and the  British commander-in-chief, lord  Wolseley, appear to haA'e reached  such a pitch that, but for the exigencies of the situation, lord  Wolseley would haA'e resigned. It  seems that lord Lansdowne attempted to usurp authority always  heretofore held by the commander-  in-chief, and tho latter is iioav said  to have laid the whole matter before lord Salisbury.  The Birmingham Post, the organ  of Joseph Chamberlain, the secretary of state for the colonies, says  it hears from an official source at  The Hague that a serious question concerning president Kruger  is now before the Netherlands ministry. The paper adds that the  president, up to last Friday, had  decided to seek refuge-on board the  cruiser Frieslaud, now off Lorenzo  Marquez, and asserts that beyond  doubt there if. good reason to be-  lieA'e that instructions anent thereto  have been cabled to the commander  of the Avarship.  Martin was the only Moses capable  of leading the country out of the  difficulty. He believed the Semlin-  Cotton government Avere just as  earnest in their desire to get rid of  tho Mongolians. The Semlin government had a Avritten promise  from sir Wilfrid Laurier that he  would introduce in the Dominion  parliament an act similar to the  Natal Act which will exclude many  Chinese and Japanese from this  province.

Mr. and  Mrs. White Avere presented to a  number of the members of the congregation who united in extending  them a hearty welcome.

Yokohama, June 7.���Reports  from Seoul state that the action of  the Japanese minister to Corea  Avith reference to the alleged case  of torture of prisoners has awakened the resentment of the government, Avhich declines to grant him  an audience Avith the king and lias  also addressed a telegram on the  subject direct to the Japanese government.  All Loyal But,One. -  Ottawa, June 7.���[Special to The  Tribune.]���There Avas a scene in the  house'of   commons   today.   When  the house met Laurier moA'ed an  address to her majesty, the queen,  congratulating   her  majesty  upon  the early termination of the Avar in  South   Africa.     The   premier1,   m  moving this address, made  a' very  eloquent speech, in which he spoke  of the justice of the* Avar, and the  bravery of the British and colonial  troops. If ever there Avas a righteous  Avar this Avas one, in  the opinion  oi" the  premier.    Ho  hoped,  however, that before the queen died  she wonld see the Dutch residents ���  of South Africa loyal and  devoted  Britibh subjects.-Sir "Charles Tup-  per seconded the address  in an eloquent   and  patriotic speech.      He  .said   that   all   that   Laurier   said  about the troops Avas true, and predicted that there avouIq  soon  be a  loyal   and    united    population   in  South Africa.   Boura&sa dissented  from   botli   speakers.       He    said  that     Britain     could     not' claim  one   ounce   of   glory   for   a    Avar  against a Sew  peasants  in   South  Africa.     There   AA'as   hissing   and  cries of ''shame*' from all  over  the  house.   Bourassa held that the Avar  Avas forced  upon  tho   queen   and  that it was brought about by some  ambitious   men   and   financiers in  South   Africa, who  wanted  larger  dividends, (renewed yells of shame).  John Charlton  administered  a  severe castigabion  to Bourassa,  and  sir Wilfred  repudiated  the  vieAvs  enunciated by him,   The   address  Avas adopted, there   being only one  A'ote raised against it.  Campaign in the Slocan.  Kaslo, June 7.���[Special to The  Tribune.]���George Kane is a wise  man. lie can't speak Avell himself  so Jimmy MeGroer of Vancouver  and F. C. Potts of Fernie are doing  all his oratory this election. They  Avere present last night with Kane  at the meeting here. Green and  Keen Avere also on the platform.  Green was loudly cheered and  noted thai Potts tried to make out  that Joe Martin had a monopoly in  his love for tho working man and in  his hatred for the Chinese and  Japanese. They all kncAV that the  Chinese and Japanese A\-ere a  menace to British Columbia, but,  he, Green, failed   to  see that  Mr.  Chinese Situation Unchanged.  London, June 8.���The situation  in China, as measured by abundant  unofficial telegrams, continues full  of interesting possibilities, but apparently it has not grown  worse  during the last 24  hours, although  the faA'orite adjectives of London  and     continental     commentators  are      "perilous,"      ''grave"     and  "dangerous."       The    naval   commanders     in       Chinese      waters  have received identical instructions  as to their procedure,'the question  of an emergency being left to their  discretion.    No fear is entertained  of the safety of the legations at  Pekin.   European residents,   however, are escaping from the capital  to the coast.   Pekin is still under  control.    Six hundred  international troops are at Tien Tsin with six  guns.   ��  Says Smith Will Win.  R. B.  Kerr of   Phoenix   passed  through Nelson yesterday  on his  way home, after campaigning   in  Southeast Kootenay in the interest  of E. C. Smith.   Mr. Kerr says that  J. R. Costigan is out of the  contest  and that the race will be between  Mr. Smith and Mr. Fernie  with the  chances in favor of the former.  Mr.  Kerr is an old campaigner in Kootenay, and  in   1894  put  up a good  fight on the stump against the late  chief justice Davie.    Mr. Kerr says  that   candidate   Smith   is   not   so  much a Martin man as he is an  opponent of Turnerism.     He also  stands Avell with the" miners and  the people of Fort Steele,    In the  southern   portion   of    tho - Nelson  riding, along the Crow's Nest railway, Mr. Kerr says that candidates  Fletcher and Hall are practically  unknown and  Avithout supporters.  Irish Yeomanry Losses.  London, June. ��� The 'list of  casualties now coming through indicates that there ,Avas severe fighting before the Thirteenth Yeomanry  surrendered. Already the names of  19 men killed, and 18 Avounded  have been issued. The killed in-  ' elude sir John Elliott, and sir Cecil  PoAver, and among the wounded is  the earl of Longford.

A seventy-foot houseboat is in  course of construction at the C, P.  R. shipyards here, and will shortly  be added to the company's fleet.  The idea is that the craft will be  utilized by tourists avIio may desire  to spend a few days or a week on  the river or lake instead of passing  through hurriedly as is the rule at  present. The houseboat -will be  fitted Avith every convenience. Tho  scheme is not new, but this is its  introduction into British Columbia.  An Unexpected Visit.  London, June 8. ���The Lorenzo  Marquez . correspondent of the  Times, telegraphing yesterday, says:  "United States consul Hollis returned today from tho Transvaal  by a special train.

Dr. Doolittle expected to land the  machinery for the Venus mill at  the site yesterday. The log superstructure of the mill is nearly completed, and the mill should be in  ojienition by July 1st.  Martin Denies It.  Vancouver, June 7.���[Special to  The Tribune.]���A political sensation  was sprung today iu  the publication by local papers of an affidavit  declaring that premier Martin is receiving $50,000 of campaign'money  from the Great Northern railway.  The transaction is alleged to have  beeu put through by.R. A. Dickson,  lawyer of Grand Forks, the affidavit  . being made by a personal friend of  Dickson's,   Edwin   A.   Gardner of  Seattle.    Gardner states that Dickson,   Avho   visited   Seattle   a   feAv  weeks ago, told him that he  was  entrusted   by    Martin    to     raise  funds for the campaign.   This was  on May 4th.   Dickson stated that  he had already raised a few thousand dollars, but that this was not  nearly enough.    He  said  that he  (Dickson) had letters froui Martin.'  to   president   Hill   of    the    Great  Northern railway and Mr. Kendrick  of the   Northern   Pacific, both of  Avhich letters   affiant   read.     The  letters Avere   worded  very nearly  alike and Avere   addressed  to  the",  gentlemen named above and stated  that the bearer came to them on  matters of importance to the  province which he Avould explain, and  were signed by Joseph Martin.  Mr.  Dickson explained   that he  was authorized by  Mr.  Martin  to  enter into an  agreement Avith  Mr.  Hill or Mr. Kendrick by which they  or their company should be granted  valuable franchises in  British  Columbia, and that in the event of his  succeeding in the coming  election,  Mr.-Martin would  cause a  proA'in-  cial.bond to issue and  Avould build  a line of raihvay from a point in  British  Columbia  near  the  international boundary near the town of ,  Republic to VancouA'er, Avhich after  completion  Avould be leased  foi- a  long period of years Avithout charge  or compensation, and in return for  the advance of the money received,  which * sum Dickson stated would  be $100,000 or more.    ���  The .affiant adv-ised Dickson to  shoAA' the letters of introduction referred to above to E.  E. Hughes, of  Seattle.    Sir. Hughes  replied that  he did not think the Northern Pacific railway company would entertain the matter, but did not know  Avhat the Great Northern  raihvay  Avould do.    Dickson left Seattle for  St. Paul May 5th 1900.    He returned to Seattle about  May 14th and  called on affiint and stated that he  had been successful  in raising  the  money   required,    the     president,  J.     J.    Hill,       had >   met      thCm    ,  cordially   aud   had    already   sent _,  $23,000 forwaid, and would send  another  $25,000 as  soon as it was  requested, and if more was necessary he AA-ould furnish that.  He stated that it avus nofc necessary to see the Northern Pacific ���  people as Mr, Hill was ready.to���  meet all requirements. Mr. Dickson stated to affiant that Mr. Hill  had ^vohihtarily~snggested���that he  (Mr. Dickson) should have transportation over the Great Northern  system, and iu proof Mr. Dickson  took from his pocket aud handed  to affiant an annual pass.  Premier Martin Avas seen today  just before leaA'ing for Victoria,  and denied that there Avas anything  in the story. He said he only Avish-  ed it Avere true that lie had got  $25,000, and said he was prepared  to accept auy campaign funds so  long as no strings Avero attached.  D. G. McDonnell and premier  Martin had a falling out today on  the Deadman's Island question,  Martin refused to remove the injunction against the mill Avork being started, and amid high Avords  McDonnell declared that he" Avould  transfer his support to the local  candidates.  Victoria, June 1.���[Special to  The Tribune.]-���A political sensation has been caused by affidavits ,  that Martin received a campaign  fund of $25,000 from J. J.

The new No. 5 tunnel has run into two feet of clean  shipping ore, Avhere the same chute  has been encountered in the face of  No 4 tunnel below.    These tunnels  are   both   in the Fidelity claims.  The different drives and stopes in  the Bosun continue to produce ore  in  sufficient quantity to keep up  the steady shipments, for Avhieh this  mine has been noted from the start.  The Avagon road has been  continued from the main camp up  to. the  neAV ore house at No.  4.

I am  assured  that the following   version is   the  correct one regarding the queen's  decision to A'isit  Ireland.   Early in  March her majesty and her granddaughter, ���   princess   Victoria     of  Schleswig-Holstein, were   seated in  one of the drawing rooms at Windsor, Avhen the queen, who had-been  thoughtful arid silent for some minutes, suddenly said:    ''I have the  wildest   idea."    The   princess   expressed   her curiositj*.    ,:You will  think,".   answered     her    majesty,  "that   there    never  was    such   a  Avild   idea.     I ���   should     like     to  Ireland,    but     I    much      afraid  that    they    Avill    never    let   me  do it." By "they" the queen meant,  of   course, her   constitutional  advisers.   "Let us talk to aunt Beatrice about it," suggested  princess  Victoria;   aud   princess  Henry of  Battenberg coming in, the idea was  placed before her.    She warmly approved, and it was thereupon decided among the three illustrious  ladies that the queen should go to  Ireland   if  her ministers  did  not  offer any serious objection.   They  offered none; on the contrary, they  expressed pleasure that the. sovereign had decided to visit the sister  kingdom, their only anxiety being  lest she should find the experience  too fatiguing.   "T do not mind tho  fatigue," her majesty is reported to.  have said, Avhen this consideration  was put before her. *  (VIINING STOCKS  BOUGHT :AND SOLD  Itufcrcmlutn Treasury Stock  Kxchcquer, 1000  Big Horn, ,j��(l<l  Peoiia, jCWIMO'  Richelieu, 1000  WANTED  Rambler CariUoo~~alid Ciatit- ~~  Vor sale-0-rooai hoiiho.

EIOH   JOHANNESBURG.  \  Johannesburg has sprung up  aviMi that tremendous rapidity  which Americans know so well in  tlio history of their own gold and  silver distiicts. As a consequence  oF the importauce of the town from  a purely monetary standpoint, it  was natural that tho Boers should  hive used much cash and ingenuity  ^iu fortifying the place, but now at  iho crucial moment they have  abandoned it. The principal fort is  a mighty piece of military engiu-  ceiing, and has been held by the  IJocr^ to be practically impregnable.  On this fortification searchlights of  great power were mounted to guard  against auy surpii&e in the night.  The auriferous tract of country  of which Johannesburg stands as  the centre is known as the Wit-  watersrand. This range is about  ."5000 feet above bea level. The city,  at the lti-L census iu IS9G, had a  population of 100.000 within a three-  mile radius. The population was  about equally divided between  whites and blacks. The distance to  Kimberley is 298 miles, aud to  Ladysmith ^50 miles.  Considering the fact that the city  is only a dozen years old, it possesses  some really fine buildings. The  chamber of mines has been char-  actetized as the best specimen of  architecture in the town. The  Jlank of Africa is also a striking  structure, a& are the buildings of  tiie ltobinson Banking Corporation.  Commencing at "The Springs,"  thirty miles to the east of Johannesburg, there is a succession of  enormously valuable mining properties as one returns to bhe city.  First there are the Railway Colliery,  the Cassel and the Clydesdale.  Tlion, in a sort of detached district,  is the1'plant of tho Rand Central  Electrical Works.  A little "west of "Boksburg, the  next station on the "tram" line of  the Nethei'land railroad, are the  mines of tho East Rand Proprietory  gioup. These are live properties  connected with that association, the  Angclo, the Dreifontein, tho New  Comet, the Agues Munro aud the  Cinderella, extendingovermore than  four miles of outcrop, in 1898 the  Augelo, with forty stamps, turned  out piofits in three mouths of  ijioOjOOO, The Ginsberg mine iu the  "���ainc year, wifch forty stamps, made  SjWO.OOO to $35,000 a month, >'ear  by, are Knight's, the Glencairn,  filon Deep and Rose Deep. The  Rose Deep was one of the mines  commandeered by the Boer government after the commencement of  hostilities.  The Simmer and Jack is one of  _tho largest mines_on the_Rand. _Jt_  has 280 stamps in operation. The  (jeldcuhuis estate in 1808 produced  for its owners $180,000 a month. In  this district are the Geldeuhuis  Deep, the Xew Ileriot, the Henry  NOnrse, the JSTourse Deep, the Bonanza, the Johannesburg Pioneer,  the George, Coeb, the Wolhuter,  ihe Bezuidenville, the Meyer aud  and Charlton and the Gity and Suburban. The Jubilee, Salisbury,  and Wemmei1 are all mines of great  i iclmepf.. The Perriera mine, also  one of those commandeered by the  JJoerrf, showed iu 1S08 profits of  $150,000 monthly. Kaud'sPremier,  South Reef and Main Reef Leader  are in this belt. The Champ d'Or  and llandsfonteiu are close to the  cily. ^  It is worthy of note that among  the mining machinery in uso on the  Rand, Chicago-made machines have  ;t large place. The mine owners in  the gold bearing district have found  that Chicago ingenuity has brought  foi th apparatus for the saving of  gold that is better than anything  that can be boiyjht on the continent.  Ifc is interesting, also, to know  thafc an American was the first to  iel! the Rand miucrs how to save  the gold they dug out of the earth.  ji'or a long time hundreds of thousands of dollars went to waste in  the tailings. An American came  along and showed the miners what  was known as the cyanide process  of gold extraction. Since then the  proprietors have been getting much  larger profits.  Some idea of fche tremendous  value of tho mining properties  which, from tiie outset; fii the war,  Is now prepared to issue Drafts and  Letters of Credit on Skaguay, IT. S.,  Atlin, B. C, and Dawson City, N. W. T.  the Boers threatened to destroy in  the event of Johannesburg being  invested by the British, may be obtained from the statement that as  far back as 185)8 the gold-bearing  Held was putting out $0,000,000 a  month and more, and the value of  the produce for that year was fully  $7o,000,000. In the year intervening between that time and the outbreak of the war the facilities for  production were largely increased.  Of course the Boers were powerless  to destroy the gold-bearing reef,  but the threat to Avreck the shafts  and tunnels and hoisting and reduction works gave a shiver to all  financially interested in England.  The chief fortification of Johannesburg is the great fort completed  in 1897 as a consequence of the  Jameson raid. The fort is rectangular iu form, with two bastions at  opposing corners. On each bastion  is mounted a 23-centimeter, quick-  firing gun, with two flanking Maxims for enfilade fire. On the side  looking toward Barnato park are  four small quick-firers. On the  opposite side toward Johannesburg  is the entrance which traverses the  rampart tit au angle of 45 degrees.  Right and left of this, within the  fort, arc stables. Under the bastion on the right are barracks and  a magazine, the corresponding position beneath the other bastion  being occupied by officers' quarters  and another magazine.

Every ten or twenty  miles on fche Karoo are to be found  wells, with flocks of Angora goats  or South African sheep.  "On the way oufc to Cape Town I  was instructor in musketry, and am  now one of the senior corporals of  the battalion."  THE METHODIST   ITINERACY.  ACROSS   THE   KAROO   RIVER.  Corporal Thomas Brown of Troop  3, D squadron, 2nd battalion, CM.  R., writes a very good description  of the pilgrimage across the Karoo  desert in South Africa. The letter  is to his father, Mr, James Brown,  1038 St. Lawrence street. Corporal  Brown is very well qualified as a  soldier, lie has Ijecn a battalion  sergeant-major of engineers, and  holds two first-class certificates of  engineering from the Royal' Military 'college, and one first from Sfc.  Johns school. Prior to going to  South Aft'ioa he was drill instructor'  in Xelson, B. C.1, company. He  writes:  Victoria West, Cape Colony,  April ]9bh,, 1900.���Upon our arrival  afc Cape Town the guns were booming their salutes for the relief of  Ladysmith and ' the capture of  Cronje. 'We stayed a week at  Greenpoint, when a rebellion broke  out' in the north of Cape Colony.  We came up by train to this place,  and, with a Heavy transport, started on our long inarch of over 230  miles across the Karoo desert. We  numbered aboufc (500, including six  twelve-pounder Canadian field artillery, two maxims and a couple of  troops of Xew 'Zealand mounted infantry. For a -week we toiled  across the Karoo sands; parched and  hungry, for our meat and biscuit  soon gave out. Then came the  winter rains,- which delayed us for  three days and nights at a time,  while, without tents or shelter of  any kind, we cooked our bread and  muttoLi-Over tiny_bush,fires or_used  the dried sheep's manure. My overcoat must have weighed aboufc 100  pounds after the big storm, so you  can imagine standing up and walking three days and nights in ifc.  "The weather broke a little, and  we were oft" again, half pushing on  while the remainder continued in  camp. Squadron D, to which I am  attached, pushed on wifch three  guns, two field guns and a maxim.  We had a gay time hauling our  baggage through the flooded parts  of the country ; one place in particular���over a mile and a half���where  we stood all day up to our waists in  mud and water helping the transport through. We came to Van  Wyk's Vlei, whore the rebels had  broken up the telegraph and government offices, bufc no sign of them  was to be had. Then, ou we pressed to Kenhardt". As we approached  the town,' a number of rebels gave  themselves up with their arms.  We entered without opposition, and  made many more prisoners and  took over sixty rifles with about  eighteen thousand rounds of ammunition.  "On the strength of information  gathered 'from spies and loyalists,  we gathered in all the leading rebel  farmers for forty miles around, I  happened to he in charge of the  guard on tho general's quarters,  and handled all the prisoners, many  of whom are to be tried for high  treason; some for poisoning the  wells, which we discovered in time  to prevent injurious consequences.  We burnt down his farm houses  for him.  "As soon as the other column  from the north arrived we started,  Australian War Preparations.  Another contingent of Australian  bushmen, several hundred strong,  has   just   left   Sydney   for  South  Africa, and within the next   few  days the contingents from the other  colonies will be on their way thither,  says an Australian  dispatch.    The  total   strength    of   the    Imperial  Bushmen's Regiments will be over  2500, which could easily have been  increased to 10,000.   In fact, a reserve force of nearly 2000 men has  been   formed    from   the   mass  of  disappointed      volunteers.       The  troops     will     land      at     Beira,  and,   under   the   command  of  sir  Frederick Carrington, form a kind  of armed police on the northern  and northwestern borders of the  Transvaal.   Most of the officers are  Australian born, many being well-  to-do professional men, and not a  few celebrities in the colonial world  of sport. All are good bushmen and  excellent riders.   The rapidity with  which   they   become  transformed  into    a   regular    military    force  constitutes   another   argument   in  favor   of  a    citizen   soldier    system.     The   khaki    uniforms    are  of      a      darker      shade       than  those   of  previous    contingencies,  and consequently less conspicuous^  at a distance.    Ifc look& as if ifc were  destined to seal the fate of scarlet  and other brilliantly colored uniforms, save for official or - parade  purposes, a change which lias taken  the imperial authorities over a century to effect. ' The growth of the  military * spirit   in   Australia   has  largely affected fche national sports,  many    of   the     leading     colonial  turfmen,       cricketers,   ���   football  players -and     experts     afc     ofch-  er   sporfcs   being    now  in    South  Africa.   There has, however, been  a largo increase in fche number of  rifle clubs, and ifc is estimated that  by the 'end of the year the number  of men capable of bearing arms in  the seven   colonies   will   be   over  100,000, exclusive of school cadets.  The   experiment of   training   the  senior cadefcs as mounted infantry  has proved successful, and it is proposed, after the return of the various   colonial   troops from   South  Africa, to have periodical exercises  in fche art of defending hills, mountain passes and other natural obstacles to the inland advance of an  invader. ""  Alien Labor Law Enforced.  Commissioner Powderly of the  United States immigration bureau,  has no consideration for fche feelings  of the apologists of the Laurier government. In spifce of the earnest  and of fc-repeated assertion fchafc the  United States alien contract labor  law is nol enforced against Canadians, commissioner Powderly refuses to believe it. Perhaps ho is  under the impression that he knows  the business of his department  better than others know. Here is  an extract from his latest utterance on this matter: The truth is  that our inspectors along the Canadian line are spurred to renewed  diligence by instructions issued  from this office, and tha laws are  more strictly enforced today, and  have been during the recent labor  troubles than ever before. I challenge anyone to show thafc the  strict letter of the law has been  violated. We are keeping a close  watch to prevent contract laborers  coming over from Ganada, but, on  the other hand, we are powerless to  prevent laborers going from this  side into Canada. If the officials  of the Ottawa goA'ernment are nofc  enforcing their laws, we are nofc responsible.    Lotteries Stopped.  Washington, June (5.���The posfc-  mastev-general has issued an order  ordering oufcof the mails "'TheCredit  General du Canada" of Montreal  and "The Credit de rEpargne" of  Paris, France. Ifc is alleged that  both concerns are conducting lotteries.  One of the distinctive features of  the  Methodist church  system  has  been the itinerant ministry.   Time  has disclosed weaknesses as well as  advantages in   fche   itineracy.    In  the early, simpler days of Methodism the weaknesses wore not conspicuous,    for    there    were    few  wealthy churches and not such wido  diversities   in   talents and attainments among the ministers.     As  wealth   accumulated   and   concentrated     and     culture     increased,  wealthy and cultured congregations  grew more fastidious, and demanded preachers  of a different   type  from   the   old-time   circuit-riders,  who, rich as they may have been in  spiritual  endowments,   lacked the  graces of culture and refinement.  It is natural that the members of a  church which pays a higher stipend  than others will claim the right to  have some voice in the appointment  of a pastor; and thus the exclusive,  arbitrary power of the stationing  committee has been gradually undermined, and the, "call" system has  been introduced and is now common.  In the states the new conditions  operated some years ago to extend  the length of the Methodist pastorate from three to  five years.   In  Canada the time was recently extended to four or five years, under  certain conditions.  But even the five-year limit has  proved irksome to Methodists in the  states, and a movement was recently started for its abolition. This  movement has been practically successful. The Methodist general  conference, iu session at Coicago,  abolished the five-year limit and  fixed the time limit of- a pastorate  at one year; but the-new rule is  that if pastor and people are satisfied to continue their relations, they  may do so from year to year for an  indefinite period.  This will probably be generally  accepted as a wise and satisfactory  compromise. If a church is dissatisfied with its pastor all it has to do  to get rid of him is to refuse to reengage him afc the end of the year.  By this plan a great deal of trouble  and bitterness will be avoided, and  pastors will be saved the humiliation of being forced upon congregations which do not want them.  But the - new rule practically  abolishes the time-honored' Methodist itineracy system". Methodism  throve under it, for "it was well  suited to the conditions of tho first  half of the century; but church  conditions, as well as all other  things here below, undergo change,  and ifc is always'prudent to take  note of changes and adapt institutions to new conditions. The probability is that the Methodist itiner-* Lot  acy in Canada will nofc long survive Lot  the abolition of the system in the Lot  states.

NELSON   RIDING  To inn Electors of iih.Nkh.son Hiding :  Gentlemen���As the unanimous choice of a duly  constituted convention of the supporters of the  PioMiioial Party in the Nelson tiding, I am bo-  foiP)onas a candidate for representative of tho  Nelson nding in the next- prownunl legislature.  In this connection I dos|so to solicit >our votes  and Influence in jsiy Uehalf, Believing tnat  c\ ery mnn aspiring for membership should place  himself oi< record on tiie main issues I take fhis  oppoi tiiintj of stating that I am in favor of legislation upon the following lines:  1. Representation in the legislntho assembly  should be based on population, w ith such mottiu-  cations as will gn e sparely settled distiicts pro-  poi tionatel) larger i cpresentation than oities and  thickl) settled fanning distqetS.  2. All legislation should he general, and not  special. A begijurng li^s been \na_e m this  collection by theenastmeiit of lav��sunder which  oities can be inco!pointed, comjiames formed,  and water records obtained. These should bo  added to by the passago of a general railway m-  coiporatioji act, and one giving municipalities  the same powers to acquire water recordb as are  now accorded pmatc corpoiations,  3 Pubhclands should be kept foractual sottlc-  ment, and land subsidies should not be granted  to aid the building of'iailways that when built  aie owned by corporations.  i. Government ownership of railway* Is no  more a theory than mmupipft) ownotship of  public utilities. Bo(.h hftvo linen tiled and found  to worfofoy tho public j;ood when capably and  HQiioslly managed ; but m making a oonintonco-  nienl in eovornniciit ownership of i ail ways in  tins }tro\inco, a seetioi' should bo soleoted m  which the government would have a free hand,  and hot In Motions whose competition w ould bo  not.  fi. Pievention of the landingJu this province  of Chinese and Japanese laborers, and the discouragement of the cmplo) ment ot those already  hcie by e\eiy fair means possible.  (t. Positive, not negative, laws should only he  passed. If the pnnciple of a law is KOtwl, the  law should be clfoctlve. The eight houi day for  men woi king undes^rpunri hi utotalliforousmines  is how generally aeooptacl .is legislation in the  jlglitdiieohon. 1 would oppose any legislation  that would ropoal tlio penalty clause, or in anj  othor wny Impair tho oHcctiveness of the law as  It now stands.  7.
