New York, Aug. 21.���Whipped  into insensibility in less thau two  rounds is the story in brief of Tom  Sharkey's meeting with Bob Fifcz-  simmous nt tho Coney Island Sporting club tonight. Fifcz was the  victor, Sharkey the loser. Fits-  said all along that wheu the opportunity presented he would show  conclusively that he was Sharke3r's  superior and settle accouuts for the  injustice done him when he met  Sharkey in California four years  ago. Sharkey was equally confident that he would prove to be  Fitzsiinraons' master in the ring.  Fitz was a decided favorite in the  betting, owing to his showing with  Ruhliu a short time ago.  When the men'met tonight, both  of them declared  themselves  to be  in first class condition,' and they  certainly looked it.   Pit/, had taken  " on a few  pounds  in  weight since  his meofcing with Ruhlin.    Neither  lie  nor  Sharkey, would  tell  what  they actually weighed, but Sharkey  looked     about     twenty      pounds  heavier.    Wheu the  men came together Sharkey became the agressor,  rushing     fiercely    and     swinging  wildly.    Fifczsimmous had no difficulty in stepping  out of the way.  Bob soon began feinting Sharkey  into leads, and when the sailor tried  his round arm blows he left himself  open, and Fit/, was  quick to  take  advantage, as he stepped inside and  put powerful right and lef t smashes  on the sailor's body and neck.    He  stabbed   Sharkey    with    his   left  making the sailor  lose his temper.  Tom  Sharkey rushed more wildly  than   before missing the   swings,  while Fitz was getting to him with  great force aud  with  both  hands.  At the close of the round Sharkey,  with  a terrific   left swing, which  landed, on the shoulder and  neck,  put Fit/, down on the floor  of the  ling and fell over him in  his  mad  rush. Tom regained his feet quickly  bub the bell rang with Fit/, still on  the   floor.     Tho   spectators   were  cheering  like wild  men, aud when  Fit/^got to his feet the men shaped  to go for each other, evidently not  having heard tho bell.    The referee  sent them to their corners, and this  is  where  Sharkey  says  lie  would  have finished Fitz had he had ten  seconds more.  In the second round Sharkey,  haviug gained confidence from his  knocking Fitz down in the preceding round, went for his man as if  to annihilate him, but Fitz, having  the cooler head and better judgment, outgeneraled the younger  man, who seemed to lose all control  of himself in this frantic endeavor  to land ou Fitz. Fitz stepped in  with a crushing right to the body  and left to the jaw, while the best  Sharkey could do was to swing a  left, which lauded in the middle of  Fitz's back. Fitz's coolness never  forsook him, and he watched Sharkers   wild   efforts   with    evident.  satisfaction, as the sailor was leaving himself very open.  Fitz stepped into him and literally battered Sharkey down with  right on the body and leffc and  rights on the head. Sharkey took  the count and came up groggy. Ho  staggered back to the ropes, with  Fitz after him. Sharkey was then  unable to protect himself and Fitz  sent that fearful right once more to  the body, following up with right  and left to the body. Sharkey wabbled, but still had strength enough  to keep on his feet. Fit/, stepped  in again wibh another right ou the  body, following twice wifch rights  and lefts on the head, aud finished  his work and tho fight wifch a stinging left hook on the jaw, which  sent Sharkey down and out. It was  a short but hard fight, in which  Fitz proved his superiority.  About six thousand people saw  the bout, but if they had uot been  extra good natured they would have  left the clubhouse long before the  fight was put on. The management was in bad order for three  hours, during which time the six  thousand penned up sports weltered  and fumed in the heated clubhouse,  where there was little or no ventilation. -  The following is an account of  the fight by rounds:  Round 1���Sharkey rushed and  swung his left for body, but Fitz  jumped out of reach. Sharkey  rushed again, but Fitz jumped  %way. Sharkey rushed again, but  Fitz met him with a heavy right on  the body. Sharkey missed a right  swing. Fitz easily got out of reach  And laughed,   Sharkey swung his  left, but Fitz got inside the blow  and lauded on his back. Fitz tried  right and leffc for head, but Sharkey  ducked and then Fitz landed a leffc  hook on the neck. Sharkey swung  wildly for tho head, but Fitz ducked  them and sent his right to Sharkey's jaw. Sharkey clinched. 'Shark-  oy swung neavy left for the head,  bufc Fitz blocked it. Sharkey rushed  wildly, landing a leffc on the shoulder. Fitz sent a leffc and right to  the face, and then Sharkey smashed  again, swinging his leffc on the  shoulder and Fitz wont down,  Sharkey falling over him with his  rush.  Round 2���Sharkey came to close  quarters, swinging left aud right  without landing. Fitzrushed,sending his right to body and left to  neck. Both swung wildly with right.  Fitz senfc a right to body and right  to head. Sharkey was wild but  Fitz sent him to the floor after a  succession of rights and lefts on the  face and body. Sharkey took the  count and got tip groggy and  staggered back to the ropes. Fitz  went after him and hooked his left  to the jaw. Then he sent right and  leffc to head and Sharkey was unable to protect himself. Then Fitz  seut a hard right to the body and  hooked him to the jaw, sending  Tom down the second time. Sharkey struggled to regain his feet,  but fell over on his hands and face.  He struggled, attempting to get up,  but the right on body and left on  jaw had done their work and Sharkey was counted out by the referee,  who declared Fitz the winner.  LETTER FROM SOUTH AFRICA  NO CHANGE FOR EARLY PEACE  If Russia Declares War.  Washington, August 24. ��� The  cabinet was in session today until  nearly 2 o'clock. At its close the  members were more reticent than  usual as to what transpired, lt can  be stated, however, that the government has so far received no  official or authenticated information that the Russian government  has declared war on China or that  it is her immediate purpose to do  so. The published report that she  has actually taken this step undoubtedly is disturbing to the administration, "inasmuch as such  action would greatly complicate  the situation and would probably paralyze the president's  efforts to bring about an early  peace. This complication is somewhat intensified by the, fear that  Germany also may contemplate a  declaration of war. What action  this government would take under  these circumstances is not known,  bufc ifc has been suggested that the  president may. at once ask for a  conference of the powers with a  view of arriving at some basis for  a settlement of the question involved, without resorting to war.  This subject of an extra session of  congress, it was said, Svas not mentioned at the meeting, and it can  be stated on the authority of a  member oi the cabinet that under  =present=conditions=such=a=sessionns  altogether improbable.  From the Capital.  Victoria, August 24.���Garden,  senior member for Vancouver, today on a technicality, secured the  restoration of the Grand Forks &  Kettle River railway bill. This is  J. R. Stratton's enterprise, and a  strenuous effort will be made to  secure the passage of the bill. The  assessment act, today, before the  house, doubles the rate of taxation  upon the mineral output ot the  provinco.   Storm in Michigan.  St. Joseph, Michigan, August  24.���The worst storm of years  struck here early today. The  steeple of the Lutheran church was  splintered by lightning and much  grain was destroyed and barns  burned to the ground. A huge  wave like that which recently  visited Chicago advanced ten feet  up the shore, washing away a number of small boats and thousands of  feet of lumber.    Dewet Headed Off.  London, August 25.���General  Baden-Powell, according to a dispatch to the Standard from Pretoria, dated August 23rd, has headed  off general Dewet, preventing his  juncture with the main body of the  enemy.      _^  Fought Twenty Rounds.  Buffalo, August 24.���Harry  Johnson of Pittsburg and George  (Kid) Bush of this city, fought  twenty rounds to a draw tonight  before the Olympic Athletic club.  They fought at 125 pounds.  By Sergeant Kelly.  The following interesting and instructive letter was received by W.  H. Bullock-Webster, chief of the  provincial police, from sergeant S.  A. Kelly of Strathcona's Horse, now  in South Africa. Mr. Kelly, who  was a member of the provincial  police force, enlisted in Nelson, and  is well known throughout Kootenay. The letter, written at Gray-  linstat, is as follows:  AVe have done lots of knocking  about since we came out, but have  done nothing to cause any great  comment in the papers, as the sort  of work we are doing now���-the  most hazardous, dangerous and  arduous in a campaign���never gets  any notice from the newspapers.  Well, after we landed we camped  at Green Point, Cape Town, for a  month, as our horses were all  quarantined owing to glanders.  "C " squadron was then moved out  to Maitland, five miles from Cape  Town, to get remounts. We were  there three weeks, in which time  we broke 400 Argentine ponies and  drilled them. On 24th May we  sailed for Durban, and from there  we went by train toTugela, on the  Lower Tugela river, in Zululand.  We camped, therefore, a couple of  weeks and theu marched to Eshowe,  in Zululand.  Zululand is the most lovely  country I ever saw and the Zulus  the most perfect people * from a  physical standpoint. We stayed  at Eshowe One day and then got a  sudden order to hurry back and  join general Buller in Natal. We  were going to make a rapid march  across Zululand and try to cut off  the Boers' retreat north, but they  were too strong"for us, so we were  ordered back. , We made the 110  miles to Durban with all our transport in- less than three daj^s which  was pretty good considering the  condition of our horses. We took  the train, or rather three trains to  Newcastle, and passed through all  the historic battlefields in Natal.  We saw Winston Churchill's  wrecked armored train at Estcourt;  then the famous - Colenso, where  'general Buller had all his trouble,  and Spion Kop in the distance.  How he ever got through is a mystery, for I dont suppose there was  ever such a position fought against  before in the world's history.  Range after range of rocky hills  with trenches and sangars (loose  rock walls) for sixteen miles front.  If a like number of British had  had that position, no army in the  world could have shifted them. All  along the railway the bridges, culverts and in some places the road  itself were blown up, but the Royal  Engineers have built round or over  or under all obstructions.  The next place of interest was  Elandslaagte,another splendid position, but there is a lot of open  ground around, which gave our  _cayaIryLa_chance.^Ladysmith came,  next, and really, all we have read  of the siege was not exaggerated.  The town lies at the side of a large  plain, about five miles in diameter  and almost circular. The famous  Wagon Hill, which was the scene of  so many night attacks and hard  fights, lies directly behind. Bulwana Hill is directly southeast,  about five miles off, and there is  where "Long Tom" was posted. Our  little force there must have done  most wonderful work to hold out so  long.  Next came Glencoe, the first big  fight, where goneral Symonds was  killed. We saw the very spot, Tal-  wana Hill, almost a mile north of  the town. Dundee we did not see,  as it is on a branch line. We landed  at Newcastle, Buller's base, and  from there marched next morning  to Charlestown. Then through  Volksrust to Ingogo, where we  joined the brigade���lord Dundonald's. It is composed of the South  African Light Horse, Bethuen's  Horse, Thorneycroft's Mounted Infantry, "A" battery of the Royal  Horse Artillery and Strathcona's  Horse. We were then, and we are  now, right in the very front seats,  and have been pretty well on the  go ever since. I forgot to say that  before joining the brigade we  marched round the base of Majuba  Hill and through Lang's Nek, another wonderful position. Shortly  before we came up the Boers had  made or tried to make a stand at  Laing's Nek, but the Royal Horse  Artillery and the rest made it so  hot for them that they bolted. Beyond the Nek there is a long stretch  of rolling prairie, or rather veldt,  and the artillery chased them, the  Boers, for neari*;'* fourteen miles.  They would gallop about half a  mile; unlimber arid pound away,  then limber up again and so on.  They did this twenty times and  completely disorganized the whole  Boer force. Of course the mounted  corps had their. share of the fun.  We would have* been there if we  had not been sent fooling around iu  Zululand.  The marvellous thing about the  Royal Horse Artillery  battery is  that they have been through every  battle that Buller has had and not  had a man hit and only one horse  shot.     We   marched   steadily   on  until Sunday, July 1st.   We were  halted at Washcpiit Spruit for noon  and were having' something to eat  when our -flanking patrol ran into  some Boers in a farm house flying a  white flag.   They fired on our men,  killing the first Strathcona, a man  named Jenkins, of "A" squadron,  arid killing, the horse of the sergeant.   The   sergeant   took   cover  behind his'horse arid stood them off  until the other   scouts   came   up,  when the ' Boers ran.   We sent out  two troops, and the Royal Horse  Artillery sent a gun.    Our men located a large party of Boers in a  donga (coulee), and the gun dropped  a shell into the middle of them and  cleared them out.   That was the  Strathcona Horse's  first   smell of  powder.    We   then   kept  moving  until we got here, Graylinstat. The  day after we got here "C" squadron  was sent out on patrol for forage,  etc.   We got about,, six miles out  when troops 2 and 8 (by the way I  have been promoted from second  sergeant of troop 2' to senior sergeant" of  troop 4) were fired   on  from a kopje.   The scouts came in  and'they had a ..very nice little long-  range fight, and althoughthe bullets came thick and the cover was  bad, no one ' was -hit.. They drove  the Boers back and moved ou.   My  troop was a mile back, guarding the  .heliograph   party   on- a hill.     On  hearing the firing.we moved for-  ,ward and joined the rest.   A few  .minutes   after,   the   scouts ��� came  trotting round a small hill followed  by a heavy'fire from another hill.  We   galloped .over  tp them   and  opened out across the open ground.  That was" my first experience of being under fire.'    We sat there for  about ten minutes and the bullets  were singing all around aud over  us.   I counted seven bullets that  hit the ground within a couple of  feet of my horse's hoofs. Not a man  so much as winked;   They behaved  splendidly in   what was rather a  trying situation, as we had to wait  for orders and could see nothing, as  the Boers we're 1000 yards off on a  high hill.   They had the range to a  dot, and it is a wonder that some  of us did nob get hit.   The man  next me had a splinter chopped off  the stock of his rifle, but he merely  laughed. In fact we were all laughing and talking as aif nothing was  happening   out   of  the   usual.     I  really thought   that .I   should be  scared when I got under fire, but  really   one    seems    to    take    it  as=^a==mere==matter===Of===courser  As   we   were   only patrolling and  not     out     to     fight     we     loft  SICNAL DEFEAT OF BOXERS  the Boers severely alone, and after  awhile went back to camp. We  Avere sniped at several times on the  way but took no notice. One of  our scouts on the flank, was riding  near a farm which had a white flag  up when a man came out and fired  at him. He merely reined up and  and took a snap shot at him aud  drilled him clean through the  shoulder, and Mr. Boer fell.  Three Boers the day before yesterday fired from a house on one of  our patrols. They wero taken  prisoners and proved to be three  men who had come in and surrendered, given up old antiquated  rifles and taken the oath to fight  no more. Yesterday morning they  dug their own graves and were  then politely and quietly shot.  Four days ago "A." arid "B." squadrons with most of the brigade ("C."  was left to guard a pass with some  infantry, the Boers being expected  to break back) pulled out for a  spot ten miles off. On the way  they struck a big lot of Boers and  had a pretty hot fight. We lost  one killed aud six missing, and the  Royal Horse Artillery lost their  first man, killed by a pom-pom  shell.  One of our Maxims had a race  with a big party of Boers for the  railway station. The Maxim got to  the back door first, was pulled  through to the front and opened  up through the door. The Boers  stood their ground well, but the  little Maxim was too much for them  and they broke back after losing  Continued on Pago Two.)  Outside Tien-Tsin.  London, August 25.-3:45 a. m.���  Five hundred American troops participated in a signal defeat of  the Boxers outside Tien-Tsin on  August 19th. The fact was briefly  reported from Vienna, details of the  engagement having been sent by  the Reuter agent at Tien-Tsin jn a  dispatch dated August 20th. In  addition to the Americans, the force  consisted of 375 British and 200  Japanese, all under the British  general Dorward. The fight took  place at a village six miles from  Tien-Tsin, where the allied forces  found a considerable number of  Boxers, whom they engaged, killing  over 300 and taking (54 wounded  prisoners, who were sent to the  hospitals of the allies. The village  was burned. The Americans had  five wounded, the Japanese six and  the British none. Hundreds of  Boxer flags, spears and swords were  captured.  From Shang-Hai comes a report,  qualified by the assertion that it is  from ...purely Chinese sources, that  the empress dowager,after proceeding on a day's journey from Pekin,  became terrified at the looting by  general   Tung   Full's   troops   and  went back to Pekin.     A Chinese  telegram from Tsian-Fu says that  prince Tuan has been captured by  a detachment of the allies.y Other  Chinese messages record the formation of a provisional government in  Pekin by the allies; but this appears  to   be a   purely military measure,  and   merely an   elaboration of the  scheme for dividing this  city into  sections   for   police   purposes.    Li  Hung Chang has received word that  the allies entered Pekin easily, because   the troops of   general Tung  Fuh Siang utterly refused to face  them.    According   to   the   Shang-  ,'Hai correspondent of the Daily Express,  general   Li, recognizing the  futility of an attempt to drh*e the  foreigners   from China, 'now   professes   conversion to   reform principles.  Shang-Hai advices announce the  receipt there of an official dispatch  asserting thafc emperor Kwang Su  has been found and rescued by the  Japanese.  Messages from Tien-Tsin report  serious mortality among the American horses owing to the heat. Delayed advices to Reuter, dated  August 14th, reiterate the statements regarding the treachery of  the Chinese on the night before the  relief. They had informed the  members of the legations that  orders had been issued to cease  firing. This was followed by a  desperate attack, and it was only  the welcome sound of the cannon  of the relieving force in the morning that renewed the courage of the  foreigners. The correspondent adds:  The Chinese admiral lost 3000 men  at various, attacks upon the^lega-  tions. Our rations dwindled to one  =pojintLjL=day,^consisting=^of=horse  flesh and rice.  Wheu the American detachment  attacked the whole Chinese force  concentrated against them, the  Shah gate was left unwatched,  whereupon the British entered the  city without tho loss of a man.  shipping purposes. They are shipping at present from the east end  of the main ledge near the Poor-  man. This ore chute is 300 to 400  feet long, 15 to 25 feet wide and  proved for 600 feet in depth. The  ore is very clean, only one sorter  being needed.; Other pay chutes  are untouched for the present. The  ore chute at the west end on the  Annie is the richest in camp. It is  seven feet wide at 150 feet depth  and runs an average value of over  $50. Picked assays running into  the hundreds of dollars have been  obtained.

WRECK NEAR THE JUNCTION  Two Men Hurt.  A bad wreck occurred yesterday  morning.on the C."P. R, three miles  this side of Slocan Junction. The  regular morning freight from Robson collided with a work train,  doing considerable damage to the  company's rolling stock. Only two  trainmen were hurt. Howard Guest,  a brakeman, dislocated his back, an  injury which may prove serious,  and brakeman W. Clary had his  collar bone broken.  The accident was caused through  a misunderstanding   about orders,  by which the   freight was allowed  to'pass the junction before the work  train   returned  and   cleared   the  line.   The company will investigate  the matter.     The   regular was in  charge   of   conductor J. G. Irving,  engineer McNabb, fireman Peebles  and brakemen   Clary and English.  She was cleared at Slocan Junction,  and was   proceeding   to N'elson at  from fifteen to   twenty miles   per  hour. The work trainwas in charge  of conductor D. Laugh ton, engineer  James Skene, fireman B. Arthur arid  brakemen H. Guest and J. Cameron.  The   work . train   had .twenty . or  twenty rfive flat. cars, with a sand  plow, and was proceeding .toward  the junction at a rate of about six  or   eight  .miles   an    hour.*  -The  trains   pulled    around    a   curve,  and     when    the    engine    crews  saw each other theyjumped without  doing  more than   reversing   their  locomotives.   Guest leaped into a  cutting - and the flat cars piled up  around   him..  Clary  was   thrown  down and the broken collar bone  was   the   result. '.

San Fhaxgisco, August 24���  [Seattle special to Tho Bulletin].���  A terrific storm rnged at Capo  Nome on August 7th. There was  heavy loss of life. Tho waterfront  is littered wifch wreckage and  stranded vessels of all descriptions.  Out of sixty-eight steam launches  it is reported that only five remained afloat, and of seventy-two  barges all but seven drifted ashore.  Twenty dead bodies were washed  ashore and taken to the morgue for  identification.  A tale of disease, death and suffering among the miners is reported  by Guy Stocklager, who has been  directing a relief expedition sent  out by the government. He has  just returned from York, and reports natives dying by wholesale.  At Teller City the natives killed  the medicine man of the tribe in  the vain hope that the act would  appease the evil spirit.  Le Roi No. 2 a Shipper.  Rossland, August 24.���Le Roi  No. 2 is now shipping regularly.  The mine will ship for tho first  mouth 3500 tons. Later the output  will approximate 10,000 tons  monthly. Delay was caused by  widening the development.shaft for J  engine, No. 88, had a tender ahead,  and the shock drove the tender into  the cab with tremendous force.  Engineer Skene barely escaped, and  in the fall he was cut about the  face and head. His dog, "Smokey,"  which has been a familiar figure  about the C. P. R. engines for some  time, followed at his heels, but was  crushed. Guest suffered greatly and  was removed to the van of the  freight train.  A   relief train ^a^T^made^up^  "qTIickly=lJt==the~depofc; "Superintendent Troup, trainmaster Hamilton and other officials, with doctors  Hall, Doherty, Rose, Arthur, Ewing  and Reinhard, were aboard. They  went to the scene of the accident,  looked after the wounded men, left  the wrecking apparatus and returned to the city at 2:30 o'clock.  On the urrival of the relief traiu  here Howard Guest was removed to  the general hospital, where the  physicians made a further examination. They decided that the  spinal column was slightly dislocated and the ligaments of the  spine injured. He will be laid up  for a month.  The Rossland and Slocan trains  were delayed for a short time last  night while passengers and luggage  were transferred around the scene  of the wreck. A large gang of men  were at work clearing the line  within an hour of the accident and  it was expected that the task would  be completed during the night.  q       Gaselee Short of Food.  London, August 24.���General  Gaselee, the commander of the British force at Pekin, telegraphing  from that place August 14th, via  Che Foo, August 23rd, gives details  of how he is disposing of his troops  there. He says the British losses  were extremelysmall,and announces  that he is very short of food; that  he was arranging for convoys, and  that he hoped to assault the imperial city that day when the men  had been fed. The general also  says the good spirits and endurance  of the troops were beyond praise,  and refers to the extremely arduous  march, owing to the heat and heavy  roads.  list of shipments;  Starkey & Co., commission mer  chants���Sandon, Thompson's Land-'--$  ing, Slocan, New Denver, White-'.-"'-*  water, Rossland, Kaslo, Moyie anil 40  Creston. *-'  -������������    ,.r|j  Turner, Beeton & Co., liquors and M  dry goods���Slocan City,Kaslo,Trout'^  Lake, Enterprise, Moyie, Fire"-Y_v_l.M  ley, Slocan Junction, Whitewater,*^"  Procter and Salmo.

Company.. _  Next Wednesday night "Sapho"  will be presented for the first time,  in this city. "Sapho" is certainly "  the most talked-of play in many  years, and probably no other play'  has had the booming which its  prosecution by the New York  authorities obtained for it. But  apart from the boom and puff,  "Sapho"* has much to recommend it.  It is well written, its dialogue being particularly bright and crisp.  It is pretty and effective, its  scenery and costuming being elegant and its situations clearly defined. It is witty, its comedy being funny without being tiresome.  It is true to human nature, its story  being that of every day life in the  vortex of the great fashionable  world of Paris. The version used  by this company is entirely respectable, free from vulgarity, true to  the story, replete with interest  from the rise to the fall of the curtain, and played by one of the most  capable companies touring the Pacific coast. Miss George Elliot plays  "Sapho," Mr. Alec Cochrane will  essay the part of Jean, Miss Maude  Corcoran will appear as Divonne,  Miss Annie Girard as Mme Hettema,  Miss Hepner as Fefi, Miss May  Evans as Julie, and 31iss Rose Stan- >  dish as Alice, W.

IF YOU WANT  Pure  Groceries  at Honest  Prices  The   opposing   political   organizations of Nelson are lining up for  the contest which is now conceded  to be but a few months off.   The  Conservatives have, appointed delegates to a*provincial convention to  be   held   on   the   Coast,   and   the  Liberals   last   evening   appointed  delegates to attend a nominating  convention for the   riding,' to  be  held   at    Revelstoke    early   next  month.   While the outcome of the  struggle may be a matter of speculation it must be conceded that the  Liberals in this portion of the riding have made great strides.    This  is no doubt due in a great measure  :to the tact displayed by its officers.  They have kept their party off the |  breakers of public opinion, and are  in a position to solicit for if the  support of the wage earners.   It is  not so long ago since the Liberal  party in Nelson, in view of its numbers, was treated as a joke, but it  has profited by the mistakes of the  local Conservative leaders, and  has gained steadily in public  opinion. Whatever charges; may  be laid at the door of the Liberal party in this section  of the riding it cannot be said that  its officers have made it the tool of  any particular class, nor have they  antagonized any considerable section of the electorate by challenging their votes, as a party, in a contest in whicli party lines were not  drawn. From a Conservative point  of view the present outlook is not  (Continued From Page Ono.)  heavily. The Maxim gunner threw  his base clamps loose and used the  gnu like a garden hose and did a  lot of damage. The Boers retired  at last pretty badly done up. General Buller was there and said that  the Strathconas behaved splendidly  but were too rash in the way they  rushed the enemy. I was out of  that, as of course we had to hold  our position, and the Boers went  the other way.  We are really doing very hard  ���work and dangerous, too; because  when we are scouting and patrolling  we are continually getting sniped  at, and can seldom see anything to  shoot back at*. A few days ago four  of troop 3 ,were scouting and were  chased by fifteen Boers. They raced  them for a kopje, got there first and  took cover. They then opened fire,  killing four Boers and capturing  two and driving the rest off. Sad  to relate we have lost one of our  corporals, Lee of Rossland. He and  one man were scouting and poor  Lee got sniped from a hill, shot  through the arm and stomach with  an explosive bullet. The man with  him got seven bullets in his horse's:  head and was taken prisoner. They  stripped him and sent him back to  camp. I am at present acting quartermaster sergeant of "C" squadron, and am, kept pretty busy. I  hope you will excuse my pencil,  paper and dirt. I am horribly dirty.  I have not washed my face for  three days or my hands for two.  They, my hands, are simply black.  The cause is the scarcity of water  for other than drinking purposes.  I have slept in my boots for the  last three nights, because we expected a night attack, which, however, never came.   I tell you campaigning is not all beer and skittles,  though, to tell the truth, it is not  as bad as I expected.   The grub is  good of   its   kind, though  rather  monotonous.   But the dirt, that is  the dusty dirt, is awful.   I really  have forgotten what a  bed feels  like; I have slept on the ground for  four months now.   The weather is  beautiful, though  very frosty   at  .night.    This is the winter, remember, and we are the only outfit in,  the field that have not got warm  underclothes and woollen khaki.   I  have been in splendid health ever |  since I left Canada, except for a  touch of fever at Maitland.   I long  for a bath room.   Wragge is well  and "away with troop 2 now.   We  are all stony broke, as we have not  been paid for over   two   months.  We expect another night   attack  tonight, but my boots are coming  off just the same.    "Lights out!"  will go in.a minute, so I must stop.  Remember me to all my friends.  S. A. Kelly.  Graylinstat, South Africa.

Lloyd's Weekly Newspaper,  In   copies   of   the   Cape  Times,  [vhich-came to hand by Saturday's  (nail, we find most   serious   complaints of   the   treatment  experi-  I'nced in several hospitals.   A few  Extracts from the narrative of  a  Volunteer from one of our distant  polonies will throw fresh light on  ���ihe distressing subject.  At the out-  Tot  he   sings   the   praises of  the  Nearer corps, who did their best to  lase the sufferings of those they  tarried.    On reaching the hospital  It   Bloemfontein   things  changed,  Jnd the R. A. M. 0. sergeant is described   as   "an   uucouth,   uncivil  ^rute." When his palm was greased  dth a sovereign a little attention  l'as given, but "wines and spirits  li'dered for a patient that had no  fioney rarely reached him, as, if  Rie orderly could not sell them, he  Irank   them   himself,    and   often  jhen   medicine    was    ordered   a  iatient the orderly saved himself  trouble of administering it by  femarking that it was no (adjec-  }ve) good giving the man medicine,  he (the patient) would be dead  |i an hour or so."  The   following   gives   a ghastly  Sicture of the scenes witnessed:  'The medicine glass was a broken  jjieasure glass, and I am- sure had  lot been washed for weeks, for all  found the outside edge there was a  (hick rim of dried saliva, and the  discharge from sore lips, etc., mak-  |ig it a disgusting thing to take in  jne's hands, let alone one's lips. All  Sorts of  medicines   were adminis-  Is now prepared to issue Drafts and  Letters of Credit on Skaguay, U. S.,  Atlin, B. C, and Dawson City, N. W. T.  tered out of the same glass, and  even the thought of it made.me  sick. Patients were allowed to lie  all day, from the doctor's morning  visit until his evening inspection,  without seeing the orderly, and had  to look after each other. This neglect, no doubt, proved fatal more,  "tliaTxTonceT"Disgusting cases lay  side by side with bad cases of fever,  dysentery, etc., and men suffering  from rheumatism were left to lie  without blankets or oil sheets between them and the ground. The  men at night would nearly always  spend most of the night awake, for  the cold was often intense, and the  savage attacks made by the vermin  would keep men on the verge of  death. Every man was literally  crawling. To give relief from this  curse would have been a very easy  matter for the authorities���a little  kerosene or camphor would have  done it���but tliey took no notice  of it."  The authorities ask why don't  you make a complaint. Here is  the answer:  " No man makes a complaint a  second time. I have seen men start  to make a complaint to the visiting  surgeon, who, of course, has a sergeant with him in his rounds, but before he could say sufficient to attract the doctor's attention, the sergeant would lean down, and in an  undertone threaten the man in insulting and obscene language that  lie would make it worse for him if  he said a word. I have seen men  down with dysentery make a complaint, and in return the orderly  has kicked the man���a man mind  you, who had no strength to stand  up. A patient who an orderly can  make nothing out of is told straight  ont that he is a nuisance, and  the sooner he dies the better."  That these are not isolated cases  is shown by similar complaints being brought forward about the  Itosebank, Maitland, and Green  Point hospitals.

It will answer  all alarms, while the present wagon  will only be brought out for emergencies. - j  Joseph   Read  reported  to   con- j  stable Hardy on  Thursday night  the loss of a roll of blankets.   A  short time later the officer located  the blankets in a vacant lot and  held vigil for several hours to capture the thief when he returned for  the swag.   No one appeared, how  ever, and the pack was returned to  Read.  The gun club shoot did not take  place yesterday owing to rain. A  postponement was made to this  afternoon at 3 o'clock.  The Nelson Boat Club's regatta  will take place this afternoon, rain  orshine. Competitors are requested  to be on hand in good time for their  races, as the length of the program  requires the races to be brought off  sharp on time.  The city band will play tonight  at 7.30 p. m. on the corner of Baker  and Kootenay streets.  The quoiters will begin their banquet tournament on Monday night.  Sides have been chosen as follows:  The I.X.L. team���G. Munn, J. H.  Wallace, D. S. Hardy, E. G. Smyth,  J. Watson, J. E. Annabele, J. P.  Weir, captain 3IcMoms and A. M.  Snyder.

It is probable  that one or two churches will not  have electric lights for the Sunday  services.  The Indian motto of the Rocky  Mountain Rangers, "Kloshe Nan-  itch," has been interpreted to mean  "look out" or "look sharp.". It is a  common expression in the Chinook  tongue, and is generally considered  quite apt for a regimental motto.  The Rangers is the only regiment  in the Canadian service to have an  Indian expression on the regimental  badge.  Rev. P. H.

NELSON    LIBERALS   MEET  Oppose Non-Resident Candidates.  The Nelson Liberal Association  met last night at the Board of  Trade rooms to consider the matter  of sending a delegation to the  Revelstoke convention on September 5th. W. A. Galliher, president,  occupied the chair.  -  In opening the point was raised  that the Nelson Electoral district  should be represented on' the basis  of voters rather than as a district  only. This would make a' material  difference -in-'the i-epresentation,  and it was contended that by this  means only could justice be secured.  The meeting concluded, however,  to waive the point and it was decided to attend the convention.  The matter of a candidate in the  next election was raised through a  communication from'-Hewitt Bostock, M. P., read by the chairman.  Mr. Bostock: stated that after giving the question of contesting the  constituency again long and careful  consideration he was compelled,  wifch very great regret, to adhere  to the determination he had already  announced, that of retiring from  the field. The association expressed  the hope that Mr. Bostock might  even yet be induced to carry the  Liberal standard once again. On  the point as, to Mr. Bostock's successor as a candidate there seemed  to be perfect unanimity on the sentiment that, the nominee of the  convention must be a man residing  within the constituency.  The election of delegates was proceeded with, resulting as follows:  W. A. Galliher, John Bannerman, J.  H. Matheson, J. A., Gibson, S. S.  Taylor, T. Madden, W. A. Maclean  and James McPhee; alternates, A.  M. Johnson^R. Hurry, W. A. Martyn, Dr. Arthur and H. J. Macdonald.  Two members of the delegation  were left to. be appointed by the  Ymir association. The only instructions issued to the delegation was  the wish expressed by the meeting  that they should vote as a unit.  The association adopted a resolution instructing the delegates to  oppose the. nomination of any nonresident,' * and another motion instructing the secretary to notify  other associations of this action.  Ernest'Mansfield Returns.  Ernest Mansfield and Charles  Plowman returned to Nelson yesterday morning after the former's absence for seven months. Mr. Mansfield spent only a few hours, leaving by the afternoon boat for Kaslo  to visit Camp Mansfield, where the  work on the properties controlled  by him is to be actively carried on,  particularly in view of the recent  strike iu the camp. His travelling  companion, Mr. Plowman, has been  successful in placing various Camp  Mansfield properties and will commence operations shortly. Mr.  Mansfield did not state when he  would commence the erection of  his projected Baker street block.
