NELSON:  TUESDAY MORNING SEPTEMBER 11 J900  PRICE FIVE CENTS  DEVASTATION OFCALVESTON  Loss of Life Unknown.  Houston, Texas, September 10.���  7 tLichard   Spillane,   a* well   known  Galveston newspaper man, aud cor-  , respondent of the Associatod Press  in that eity, reached Houston today after a terrible experience. He  ' gives the following account of the  disaster at Galveston: "One of  the most awful tragedies of modern  times visited Galveston. The.city  is in ruins aud the dead will number probably 1000. I am just from  the city, having been commissioned  by the mayor and citizens' committee to get in touch with the outside world, and appeal for help.  Houston was the nearest point at  which working telegraph instruments could be found, the wires as  well as nearly all the buildings between here and the gulf of Mexico  being wrecked.  " When I leffc Galveston, shortly  before noon yesterday, the people  were organizing for the prompt  burial of the dead, distribution of  food, and necessary work after a  period of disaster. The wreck of  Galveston was brought about by a  tempest, so terrible tli at no words  can adequately describe its intensity, and by a flood which turned  the city into a raging sea. The  weather bureau shows thafc the  wind attained a velocity of 84 miles  per hour, when the measuring instrument blew away, so fchat ifc is  impossible to tell what was the  maximum.  "The storm began at 2 o'clock  Sunday morning. Previous to that  a great storm had been raging in  the gulf, and the tide was very  high. The wind afc first came from  the north, aud was in direct opposition to the force from the gulf.  While the storm in the gulf piled  water np on the beach side of the  cifcy, the north wind piled the  water from the . bay on the bay  part, of the cifcy. Aboufc noon it  became evident that the city was  going to be visited with disaster.  Hundreds of residences along the  beach front were hurriedly abandoned, the families fleeing to dwellings in higher portions of the city.  * Every home was opened to the  rcfugess, black or white. The  winds were rising constantly, and it  rained iu torrents. The wind rose  so fierco - that the rain cut like a  knife. In the meantime the, wind  had veered to the southeast. Very  few if any, buildings escap'ed injury. There is hardly a habitable  dry house iu the cifcy. Then the  people who had escaped death went  out at daylight to see the work of  the tempest and Hoods, aud they  saw the most horrible sight imagi-  able.  "In three blocks, from Avenue N  to Avenue P on Tremont street, I  saw eight bodies, four corpses  being in one yard. The whole of  the business front; for three blocks  =on=fche-Gulf=front=is=stripped=-of=alU  vestige of habitation, the dwellings,  the great bathing establishments  the Olympia and every structure  having been either carried oufc to  sea or its ruins piled in a pyramid  far into the town, according to the  vagaries of the tempest.  "The first glance over the cifcy  showed that the largest structures  suffered the greatest.. The Orphans  Home fell. How many dead children and refugees are in the ruins  could not be ascertained. Of the  sick in St. Mary's Infirmary, together with the attendants, only  eight are understood to have been  saved. The Old Woman's home ou  Rosenburg avenue collapsed and  the Rosenburg schoolbouse is a  mass of wreckage. The Ball high  school is but an empty shell,  crushed and broken. Every church  iu the city with possibly one or two  exceptions is in ruins.  "By three o'clock the waters of  the gulf and bay met, and by dark  the entire city was submerged. The  flooding of the electric light plant  and the gas plants left the city in  darkness. To go up on the streets  was to court death. The wind was  then at a cyclone velocity, roofs,  cisterns, portion of buildings, telegraph poles and Avails were falling,  and the noise of the wind and the  crashing of the buildings were  terrifying in the extreme. The wind  and water rose steadily from dark  till 1:45 o'clock Sunday morning.  During all this time, the people of  Galveston were like rats in a trap.  The highest portion of the city was  four to five feet under water, while  in the great majority of cases the  streets were submerged to a depth  of ten feet. To leave a house was  to drown. To remain was to court  death in the wreckage.  Such a nighfc of agony has seldom  been equalled. Afc 1:45 a. m., within twenty minutes the water had  gone down two feet and before  daylight the streets were practically  freed of the flood waters. At the  forts nearly all the soldiers aro reported dead. Tliey having been in  temporary quarters which gave  them no protection against the  tempest or the flood. No word has  yefc been received from the Catholic  orphan asylum- down the island,  but it seems impossible that it  could have withstood the hurricane.  If it fell ali the inmates were no  doubt lost, for there was no aid  within a mile. The bay front fiom  eud to end is in ruins. Nothing but  the piling and the wreck of great  warehouses remain. The elevators  lost all their super-works and their  stocks are damaged by water.  "The life saving station at Fort  Poinfc was carried away, the crew  being swept; across the bay fourteen miles to Texas City. I saw  captain Haines yesterday and he  told me thafc h is wife and one of  the crew were drowned. The  shores of Texas City contain enough  wreckage to rebuild a city. Eight  persons who were swept across the  bay during the storm were picked  up there alive. Five corpses were  also picked up. There were three  fatalities iu Texas-City. In addition to the living and dead which  the storm cast up at Texas Cifcy,  caskets and coffins from one of the  ceraetries at Galveston were being  fished oufc of the water there yesterday. In the business portion of  the city, two large brick buildings,  one occupied by Kuapp Bros., and  the other by the Cotton Exchange  saloon, collapsed. Up to the time I  leffc Galveston three dead had been  taken-from the ruins. How many  more corpses there are will not be  known until the search is finished.  The cotton mills, bagging factory,  gas works, electric light works and  nearly all industrial establishments  of the city are wrecked or crippled.  The flood leffc a slime about one  inch deep over the whole city, and  unless fast progress is made in  burying corpses and carcases of  .animals there is a danger of pestilence.  "Eight ocean steamers were torn  from tlieir moorings and stranded  in the bay. The Kendall Castle  was carried over the flats to Texas  City. The Norwegian steamer  Gyller is stranded bofcweeu Texas  City and Virginia Point. An oceau  liner was whirled around through  -tho west bay, crushed through the  bay bridges and is now lying in a  few feet of water near the wreckage  of the railroad bridges. The  steamer Tauntin was carried across  Pelican Point, aud is sfcrauded about  ten miles up the coast. The Mallory  steamer Alamo was torn from her  wharf and dashed upon Pelican  flats' and against the bow of the  British steamer Red Cross, which  had beeu hurled there. The stern  of the Alamo is stoved iu and the  Jbow of the Red Cross is crushed.   "Down the channel to the jetties,  two other ocean steamers lie  grounded. Some schooners, barges  and smaller craft are strewn bottom side up along the slips of the  piers. The tug Louise of the Houston Direct Navigation Company, is  a wreck. Ifc will take a week to  tabulate the dead aud approximate  the monetary loss. It is safe to assume that one-half of the property  of the city is wiped out, and that  one-half of the residents have to  face absolute poverty. For ten  miles inland from the shore ib is a  common sight to see a small craffc,  such as steam launches, schooners  and oyster sloops. The life boats  of the life saving station were carried half a mile inland, while a vessel that was anchored in Moses Bay  lies high aud dry five miles up from  Lamarque.  Two Failures Reported.  New York, Sept. 10.���Two failures were announced on the cotton  exchange shortly after noon today.  One was that of Gay R. Schiffer,  and the other that of his father, L.  G. Schiffer, one of the oldest men  in the cotton trade in this city.  The failure of L. G. Schiffer is supposed to have been due to his efforts to help his son who has been  a very heavy trader for some time.  The failures produced no material  effect on the market.  Using American Coal.  Bbriiaven, Ireland, Sept. 10.���  The ships of the British channel  squadron are now here filling their  bunkers with American coal, from  colliers chartered by the admiralty.  I VICTIMS WILL NUMBER 5000  Searching for the Bodies.  Dallas, Texas, Sept.  10.���From  Virginia   Point, north   and south  along the bay front, at such places  as Texas City,   Dickinson, Hitchcock, Seabrook, Alvin, and a dozen  small intermediate points, the number of dead bodies gathered up by  rescuers had reached at noon  more  than seven hundred.    This is only  a small scope of the country devastated, and it is feared the death  list from the storm will ultimately  show not less than 5000 victims.  Hundreds have been swept out to  sea.   Two mass meetings were held  today and many thousands of dollars were subscribed tor the  relief  of the Texas Gulf storm  sufferers.  Railroad and cotton  men  estimate  the loss of all kinds  of property,  including the cotton  crop, at from  .$15,000,000 to $20,000,000.  Chicago, Sept. 10.���According to-  board of trade statistics, the damaged grain elevators at Galveston  contained     2,223,000     bushels    of  wheat.  Washington, Sept. 10.���Governor Sayres; of Texas, has applied to  the war department for 10,000 tents  and 50,000 rations for immediate  use for the suffers from Saturday's  storm. Acting secretary Meikle-  john issued an order granting the  request. The tents will be sent  from Sau Antonio and" Jefferson  barracks. It is expected that a  large portion of the rations can be  procured at San Antonio. If not  they will be sent from Kansas City.  ROBERT GRAHAM IS KILLED  In the Cariboo Mine.  Greenwood, September 10.���Information has been received here  that Robert Graham was killed iu  .the well-known Cariboo mine at  Camp McKinney yesterday (Sun-'  day). Particulars are as yet very  meagre, but ifc is stated that he  was coming up An the cage, on  whicli there was as well a heavy  mine bucket, and when the station  at the 200-foot level was reached  by some unexplained means the  cage tipped, man aud bucket, falling  down the shaft to the 400-foot level.  The unfortunate man was killed  instantly. He was a brother of  Thomas and Patrick Graham, the  former being the manager of the  Waterloo mine, Camp McKinney,  the family having been actively  connected with the camp for many  years. They are from Colville,  Washington, and are nephews of  James Monaghan, Spokane, formerly president and controlling  shareholder in the Cariboo mine,  which during his direction of its  affairs became, and has ever since  continued to be, a dividend payer.  The sad occurrence was yesterday _reported_to���chief- provincial"  constable McMynn of Greenwood.  Camp McKinney being outside the  jurisdiction of the district coroner,  Dr. R. W. Jakes, of Greenwood, Mr.  McMynn at once telegraphed particulars te the attorney-general,  and is now awaiting instructions.  It is very probable though that a  coronial enquiry will be held into  the circumstances attending his  untimely death.  JURY AWARDED DAMAGES  ___i  *        m,   ���  /   '.  Case of Wilson vs C. P. B.  At the county court yesterday  the jury in the suit of Wilson vs.  C. P. R., awarded the plaintiff $75  damages. The case was of more  than passing interest inasmuch as  the point was involved as to  whether a steamer on the lake  made a proper landing where the  craft was not tied up. In this instance the Moyie touched at Procter to take on the plaintiff. The  boat was not tied up, and- drifted a  few feet away from the float before  plaintiff boarded her. As the boat  moved off the gang plank knocked  over some timber which fell on  plaintiff's ankle. Judge Forin submitted a list of questions to the  jury, among them being "was the  defendant company's steamboat responsible for the accident," and  "was' there carelessness in the  handling of the boat." The answer  to the first query was "yes, indirectly," and the second was also  answered in the affirmative.   The  damages were placed at $75, which  was $25 more thar the disbursements claimed by plaintiff as a direct; result of the'iujury.  During the day 'the action of  Klavano vs. McDermid was disposed  of, judgment being given the plaintiff for $328.  In Sanford vs Tardington it  Craig, the defendant Craig did not  appear and ^judgment was given  against him.  TREACHERY QF ThToHINESE  Legations Saved in Time.  London,- September 11.���Dr.  Morrison, the Pekin correspondent  of the Times, wiring August 31st,  confirms the reports'of the treachery of the Chinese government, and  the issuance of imperial decrees ordering ' the extermination of foreigners. "The imperial troops," he  says, "mined the British legation,  and probably in another day there  would have been a terrible explosion. A similar mine made by the  Chinese imperial troops exploded in  the Pai Ting cathedral, and engulfed two hundred native Christians."  The Shang-Hai correspondent of  the Times, wiring September 9fch,  says: "The Chinese minister at Sfc.  Petersburg has telegraphed to Li  Hung Chang that, the proposal to  evacuate Pekin presumes that satisfactory assurances ;will be giveu'ou  the return of the imperial court; to  the capital at once. - A later message urges earl ��� Li to endeavor  earnestly to bripg the powers to  agree to evacuate, since if Russia is  obliged to reconsider her decision, a  loss of prestige is inevitable. Li  Hung Chang has memorialized the  throne urging the immediate return  of the court to Pekin."  London, Sept. 11.���Lord Salisbury will return to London on Friday, when some fresh developments  in the Chinese situation is expected.  Beyond Japan's reply, showing.her  intention to continue': to occupy  Pekin, there is little to throw further light.      - , ,. ..  From Shang-IIai comes a .jreport  that Li Hung Chang has despatched  au urgent telegram to the dowager  empress, at Tai Yuen Fu, announc-  ing-the purpose of fche allies to advance to Pao Ting Fu, and perhaps  even further. Tho Tien-Tsin- correspondent of the Daily Mail asserts  that everybody in Pekin is living  on "bully beef" and hard tack.  London, September 11.���The Tokio correspondent of the Times,  wiring September Sth, . says:  "Japan has replied that she will  not object; to the withdrawal of her  army from Pekin, and the other  measures recommended by the concert of powers, and since her geographical position enables the  prompt addition of necesssary military measures, she is willing to  withdraw her troops."  THE CAPTAIN SHOT HIMSELF  CHANGES IN MINERAL ACT  Bather Than be Captured.  Kumassi, September 7.���News  has been received here that a body  of 3000 native levies, under captain  Benson, attacked Ojesu,,the famous  fetish town, ten miles east of Kumassi, on August 29th, instead of  waiting to co-operate as ordered  with lieutenant-colonel Brake's column, consisting of the Central  African regiment, which reached  Ojesu on August 31st. As soon as  they were v.uder fire the levies  turned and fled. Captain Benson,  who had only one white man with  him, is reported to have shot' himself in order to avoid falling iuto  the hands of the Ashantis.  Minto at Eossland.  Rossland, September 10.-^-Lord  Minto, governor-general of Canada,  and party arrived here this evening. They were received with all  honors, the Rocky Mountain Rangers, the miners, carpenters and  other unions met the party at the  depot, with two brass bands, and  they were escorted through the  streets, which were in gala day attire, to the residence of C. H. Mackintosh, where they had supper.  After supper a reception was held  in Miners' Union hall, which was  attended by hundreds of enthusiastic citizens. Tomorrow the party  will visit the leading mines, and in  the evening a banquet will be given  at the Kootenay hotel. The viceregal party leaves here on Wednesday morning for Nelson.

SWITCHING THINcTaROUND  The Minto Beception.  An important change was made  last night in the program for the  governor-general's reception, when  it was decided to cut out the proposed banquet at the Hotel Hume.  This was done at the request of the  earl and countess of Minto. ���  Captain J. W. Troup met the  vice-regal parfcy at Robson yesterday afternoon and accompanied  them to Rossland. He laid the proposed program of the Nelson reception before their excellencies and  telegraphed the result to the city  last night. G. V. Holt received the  message and placed the information before the city council at last  night's session.  The governor-general and party,  captain Troup said;- would reach  Nelson at 2:30 o'clock on Wednesday afternoon. To save time they  would partake of luncheon in their  car en route, and would be afc the  disposal of the reception committee  on their arrival for the presentation  of addresses, or any other purpose  up to 6 p. m. They "begged to be  excused from the banquet in the  evening, pleading that-the party  , would be very much fatigued after  the Rossland banquet, and the late  hour at which the- invitation to  Nelson? arrived having prevented  their arranging for a day's rest between. In lieu of the dinner they  would hold a reception at 8:30  o'clock. It     was     particularly  pointed out in regard to dresses  for this function that while their  excellencies would dress for the  occasion as a compliment to the  city, they were most anxious that  no one should remain away from  the reception on the score of costume.  Lord and lady Minto also expressed the desire to remain in their  car at the depot rather than go to  a hotel, lady Minto pointing out  that as the ladies' dresses were all  at the car it would entail a great  saving of time and be no slight  personal convenience. The report  of the vice-regal party is that they  are very pleasant indeed and appar-  ently anxious to please .all  The information was received by  the committee, and the banquet  sub-committee discharged. The  program will be modified to meet  the new conditions.  PLENIPOTENTIARIES NAMED  By the Chinese Government.  London, September 10.���The  Chinese minister in London, sir  Chih Chen Lo Feng Luh is understood to have received from Li  Hung Chang a copy cf tha occdoa-  tials emanating from the imperial  household, appointing the plenipotentiaries to conduct the negotiations for peace, and laying down  the conditions in relations thereto.  It is intimated that similar documents have been transmitted to the  Chinese ministers at other capitals,  and that the credentials are such  as will satisfy the American and  European governments.  The Chinese minister here is in  conference with the foreign office  officials this afternoon, when, it is  understood, he handed in the credentials referred to.  Democratic Gains in Maine,  Portland, Maine, September 10.  ���Returns from 120 towns and  plantations out of 512 in fche state  give Hill (Republican) 28,332, and  Lord (Democratic) 10,181. Compared with four years ago this  shows a Republican loss, of 12 per  cent, and a Democratic gaiu of 23  per cent. On this basis it is estimated that the Republican plurality this year will be about 30,335.  .f:  %m  if.'C'  '~'t HI  :-*���"��_  THE MISSING MISSIONARIES  About 100 Murders Proven."  Shang-Hai,. September 10.���John  Goodnow, tho United States consul-  general   here,   after    inquiries   in-  every possible source, learns that  the number of British and American   missionaries    probably    murdered during the uprising in China  has been 93, while 170 others, sta- '���  tioned in Chi Li and Chan  Si provinces, are   unaccounf   "   "or, and.  there is reason for the        lef that -  they inave met the san.-    -ate.

There are some important changes -' ���  pending among the 14 Catholic sees jt  of"thiscountryrwliiclTrifc~is"learnedrTS  may be officially announced after V,  archbishop Kane's return from ''���  Europe. For the first time since J  the Vatican council assembled at f~-  Rome in 1809 the influx of American b  prelates has been steady during the7g  present year, aud it is authorita- -'|  tively stated that pope Leo is deeply _ S  impressed with the reports which ���;  all of them have made concerning'7  tlieir sees. In fact, the pope has y_  never before met so many members 7  of the hierarchy from this country  during a single year since his accession to the papacy. On this  account he has been xcnaibly tou._-  ed by their proofs of devotion to  him, and it is said he intends to eni-  phasi/.e his appreciation of their  loyalty by conferring further religious favors upon the United  States.  The creation  of   Omaha   as   an  archdiocese will be definitely announced soon, when the indications  are that there will be further found-1  ations of episcopal sees in California,  New York and Pennsylvania.    It is  expected  that archbishop Riordan  of San Francisco is to be given a  coadjutor bishop afc an early date.  The    probable    appointee   is   Dr.  George Montgomery of Los Angeles,  who has been acting head of the St.  Louis archdiocese during   the ab-7  sence of its incumbent, Dr. Kane, in  Europe.   A number of monsignors  or domestic papal   legates of the";  pope likewise will be appointed in7  various parts of the country soon.%  A Job on the Police Force.       7;  Pretoria, Sept. 10.���General  Baden-Powell has been appointed  chief of Transvaal police.  ���' 7 7777;:ilM?$s=$ivH r ���jK_��s.ar?��>p_5S,,,tf  W*S^^^B_^��!^7^^  /'  t^raaasa?Bgggs<a~5  THE TEIBTOTE: KELSON B.

Poster and Hugh John Macdonald  met in Montreal yesterday. The  first   two   reported  the   Maritime  provinces as solid for the Conserva-  "' tive party, and Hugh John evened  things up by assuring, them that  the Conservatives will carry every  seat west of the Great Lakes. Hugh  John should be careful.   Predictions  ^of this kind should not be sent out  broadcast.   They weaken the effect  of what eminent men may say when  they discuss matters  with which  . they are familiar.   In the last general elections the Conservatives secured but two  of the half dozen  Rritish Columbia seats.    Since that  time there has been no phenominal  growth in Conservative sentiment;  nor is the party more homogeneous  now than it was in 1890.   The lessons of the last contest have evidently been lost upon those who  should guide the party    Instead of  co-operation, jn some sections of the  province at least, there is almost  open rebellion.    This is a condition  which does not promise well, and  it is so generally understood that  people will smile   when they see  Hugh John's   prediction  that the  Conservatives will carry everything  west of the Great Lakes.  The cifcy council last evening took  advantage of the recent amendment to the Municipal Act which  enables municipal councils to prac-  mi-  six  tically shut out pedlers and transient traders. The act as amended  permits the municipalities to  pose a tax of $250 tor every  months in the case of pedlers, and'  of $500 for every six months in the  case of transient traders. The city  council last evening very wisely  decided to give them the limit, and  if the other municipalities will follow Nelson's lead the interior will  soon be rid of this very undesirable  class of traders.  considered fully entitled to an increase, and have been willing to  grant it all through." Grand chief  conductor Morrissey haFleft for his  home thoroughly satisfied. One of  the oldest passenger conductors in  the employ of the C. P. R. said :  "TJie fight was really for the freight  conductors, and I think we impressed both Mr. McNicoll and Mr.  Taifc with the reasonableness of our  claim. It was merely a matter of  wages. There was no difficulty iu  adjusting the other issues.  A   TALK   AT   PEETORIA.  There are about 4S9 good reasons  why the local Conservative organization in Nelson is in disfavor.  The banquet in connection with  the reception to lord Minto is off.  His excellency says he has a meal  ticket of his own.  The Nelson Conservatives will  meet shortly for organization purposes. The majority of them have  decided either to change their officers or to change the name of their  association.  C.   P.   E.   EMPLOYEES   WON.  The differences between the Canadian Pacific Railway Company and  the Order of Railway Conductors  and Brotherhood of Railway Trainmen have been adjusted to the satisfaction of the company and this  branch of its employees.   The good  services rendered by grand master  Morrissey of the   Brotherhood of  Railway Trainmen and grand chief  conductor Clark   of the Order of  Railway Conductors, and the general moderation aiid good sense of  the members of the joint committee,   made   a statement comparatively easy.   The  outcome of the  negotiations has been a slight increase in the wages of freight conductors and an advance in the yardmen's remuneration.   These organizations asked for a flat scale of two  cents a mile for trainmen,   three  cents a   mile for   conductors, the  abolition of the junior scale, aud  where over 40 cars are handled on  a train the employment of three  brakemen instead of two.    Mr. Tait,  the manager of the eastern lines of-  the C. P. R., in discussing the settlement, said:     "The difficulty   has  been settled.    We have given the  senior freight conductors   on   the  Ontario ��fc Quebec division an increase of from $2.58 to $2.70 per 100  miles.   We have given our yardmen ��� on that division an increase  which will amount to about 15 per  cent on their old wages.   The passenger conductors, the brakemen and  other trainmen all asked for an increase, but we were unable to accede  to   their   demands.     The   ground  upon which the freight conductors-  asked for an increase was that they  had to look after larger trains now  than formerly, owing to our using  heavier engines.

SIMPKINS,  District Registrar Supremo  Court   of .British  Columbia.  Cameras  AND AMATEUR  PHOTOGRAPHERS'  SUPPLIES OF  ALL KINDS.  Those who have predicted that  it would be impossible for the British to pacify the Transvaal because  of the unconquerable hatred of the  Boers to the English, have overlooked the important fact���that  many of the Boers hate their own  late rulers moro intensely than  they hate the English. Indeed, the  conditions grow more favorable  for British rule every day, for the  Boer prejudice against the English  was founded chiefly upon ignorance;  and as the people of the country  come to know the English well and  learn the true character of British  institutions, the old prejudice will  gradually disappear. And more,  as the Boers learn how grossly they  have been deceived, misgoverned  and robbed by their own leaders,  they will the more easily become  reconciled to British rule,  Mr. Barnes, the New York Outlook's correspondent in South  Africa, has something interesting  to say on this subject in his latest  war article, published last week.  He writes of conditions and incidents at Pretoria shortly after its  occupation by the British. The  following conversation which he  had with an intelligent Boer throws  a side-light upon the situation,  showing that the difficulty of inducing the burghers to settle down  contentedly under British rule may  not be as great as it has been  represented:  Said a prominent burgher to me :  "For months we have spoken  quietly among ourselves, 'When  the English come,' and talked so. of  the future. Our officials were saying, 'The English will never reach  liere ��� they are starving ��� they  mutiny���they will not face, bur  burghers���their officers drive them  to fight Avith whips,' and our  papers, under orders, printed stories  of Victories that never happened,  till we smiled among ourselves.  Only the very ignorant were deceived. Oh, yes, I fought. I was  wounded at Colenso. I came back  to. fight no more. I knew. But,  see here���"  He pulled a newspaper clipping  from his pocket. It was from the  Volkstim of a recent issue. It detailed a number of British reverses  that I could not recall having ever  heard of, which, seeing I had been  on the spot, was nofc a strange  thing; but they were in the form  of official dispatches, giving them,  on paper at least, an air of authenticity. The editor, out of a sense  of humor or disgust, had added a  little paragraph of his own.  "We are also informed," wrote  he, "chat lord Kitchener and lord  Methuen are wounded, lord Roberts  is a prisoner, and the rest of the  English army have committed suicide!"  "How about Kruger and his advisers?"     I   asked.

General Chi'istaiu De Wet is so
strong in his hatred of England and
all things P^nglish that he has
brought np his family almost without education, and has strictly for-
) bidden the use of English in his
household. His own education was
'completed within a few short
months, and if he knows English,
like many other Boers he is most
careful to conceal his knowledge.
But,   all   uneducated   as    he is
De   Wet   has    proved    himself a
shrewd man of business. He gained
a   fair   fortune   from   his   skillful
working of his farm, and this he
has increased by speculation.     Nor
did he fail to live upon the enemy,
for though he hated English folk
and English ways, he had a keen
desire for English gold, and in his
efforts to acquire it has been known
to help in  driving  400  pigs from
Bloemfontein   into   Johannesburg.
As a member of the volksraad he
has been best known for his strenuous efforts to undermine British influence   and "verdomde Engelsch-
mann,"   that   pet phrase of Boer
abuse, was frequently upon his lips.
He    is    no     orator,    though    he
proved himself a capable agitator at
the time of the election for the presidentship of the Free State in 1896.
In   the volksraad his efforts were

way to secure the independence of
both the Dutch republics was to
cement an alliance between them.
This desire to see his blood spurt
was frequently on his lips, and on
one occasion lie would see this take
place for his beloved taal. But his
blood was heated then by the appointment of an Englishman as
teacher of English at the Grey college, Bloemfontein; where French
was taught by a Hollander, and
De Wet considered it would be.
more logical to have English taught
by a German.
Before the outbreak of the -war
De Wet had had but little military
experience.    He was a mere boy at
the time of the great war between
the   Free   Staters   and    Basutos,
though he was one of many of his
countrymen who, despite president
Brand's proclamation of neutrality,
fought side by side with the Transvaalers in the war they love to call
the   "War of Independence."    In
that conflict he took part in the
fights at Laing's Nek and at Schuin's
Hoogte, called by the British the
Ingogo river.   He was, moreover,
one of the half hundred burghers
from the Free State who volunteered
to storm   Majuba   Hill.     On that
occasion a Highlander leaped from
the sheer cliff, and, catching a tree,
fell an easy victim to De Wet's unerring   rifle.     That  Highlanders^
uniform is to this day one of the
Boer     general's     most   treasured
If it were not that De Wet is
known to be no scholar it might
have been thought that he had
been studying the history of the
exploits of some of the dashing
leaders  of  irregulars   during the

in     any.    case     he    has    practiced   their  principles cwith great

Sanna's    posfc,    and    immediately
jifterward he .performedjwhat_was,
probably the greatest   of his exploits in the capture af the Royal;
Irish Rifles   and   Northumberland
Fusileers  at Reddersburg.    When
this composite force started from
Dewetsdorp it had 30 miles to march
before completing its mission, and
there was absolutely no trace of
the enemy.  Three hours after they
had left, De Wet returned from his
success at Sanna's post, and when
he learned their strength he sent oif
to.that place for men aud guns and
gathered together the burghers in
the neighborhood.   AVith these he
fetched a compass and headed the
Royal Irish Rifles when they were
within twelve miles of the railway,

which they had occupied until reinforcements came. His arrangements proved successful, and before long, he had four.guns .playing
on the luckless British soldiers.
Aud, by the irony of fate, those
were the British guns, taken from
the Horse artillery at Sanna's post,
and British wagons and supplies
were brought on there as well. Goneral De Wet has, it is clear, a master
military mind.
Hamilton's Refining Work.
Hamilton Herald,   o
It is yet too soon to say positively that Mr. Frasch's process of treating nicker and copper ore and matte
is   an   assured   success;   but most
share the high hopes that the directors of the Nickel-Copper Company
have formed with  regard to the
process.    Before a large representative company of citizens and visitors from other places, a practical
demonstration of the process was
given yesterday at the Hoepfner
Refining Works, and the general
opinion of those present seems to
be that the demonstration was satisfactory.   The works were erected
mainly for the treatment of zinc
oro.   This, however, has been found
impracticable,   and   the   company
will utilize the building and plant
for the treatment of copper and
nickel ores and matte.   To judge
from remarks made by the company's guests at the banquet last
night, the inception of this enterprise means the establishment of
an industry which will very soon
grow to enormous proportions.

SINGLE TAX FOR PEDLERS  Designed to Shut Them Out.  The city council held a brief  session last night in course of which  the routine business of the week  was dispatched. The members  present were mayor Houston, aldermen Irvine, Arthur and Morrison.  The bylaw relating to licenses  for hawkers, pedlers and transient  traders was amended so that in  future the hawkers and pedlers will  require to pay $250 for each six  .months and transient traders $500  for each six months. This will not  apply to parties selling fruit, fish  and vegetables. ~ '  Further attention was drawn to  the dangerous proximity of gas  pipes and electric light wires in a  number of buildings. Aldermen  Arthur and Morrison moved that  the city electrician be instructed to  inspect all buildings having gas and  electric light and cut off the electrical current where danger is apprehended until the source of such  danger is removed. This was carried.  John Elliot forwarded a $6 account for sewer work at his block  claiming that the city should pay  Bankrupt Stock  FOR SALE BY TENDER.

An application from the Nelson  rifle company for a prize to be shot  for at the company shoot on October 6th was referred to the finance  committee.  It was resolved that the chief of  police should be instructed to enforce the streets bylaw and notify  all parties occupying the city streets  to vacate.  Alderman Irvine drew the attention of the council to the fact that  cabmen and teamsters have their  teams stand on the macadamized  roadway where the horses toro up  the pavement. He moved, seconded  by alderman Arthur, that teamsters be required to stand on Ward  streets between Baker aud Vernon  streets.   This was carried.  Alderman'-.Arthur stated that the  special committee on tho rifle association trophy recommended the  council to purchase a $05 pair of  field glasses to be awarded to the  person winning them twice out of  three consecutive matches or three  times in all. This was carried.  "The residents of block 01, 92 and  93, fronting on Victoria street,  asked to have Victoria street  graded from Kootenay street west.

Campbell, T. Houston, J. Fox  and H. Burnett.  R. S. Lennie was called to the  "chair and D. Rutherford was appointed secretary.  In a general discussion of the  matter it was suggested that even  should it so happen that the whole  team did not come home together,  those who did return together  should be-.invited to visit Nelson,  and if possible put up something in  the way of an exhibition game, so  that the Nelsonites could have a  chance of seeing* the world's champions.  On motion of Frank Tamblyn,  seconded.by John Bunyon, ifc was  resolved that an invitation be extended to the members of the Westminster team to visit Nelson as the  guests of the local lacrosse club and  the citizens.
