 W-  _$��.**.**.** ��� -���M-w*l-f_v-  y:��d  DAILY EDITION   BY MAIL  FIVE  DOLLARS A YEAR  WEEKLY EDITION BY MAIL  TWO DOLLARS A YEAR  EIGHTH YEAB.  NELSON:  FRIDAY MORNING SEPTEMBER 7 J900  PRICE FIVE CENTS  NELSON MEN ARE IN LUCK  ���;v  In Their Mining Venture.  If  W  H  Kaslo, September 6.���[Special to  TJie Tribmie.1���A property in which  Nelsou people are likely to become  interested is that of the Valparaiso  Mining Company, about the operations of wliich The Trihunb had  something to say a short time since.  A good deal of development work  has been done on tbe company's  property, which is situated on Goat  creek, which runs into Kootenay  lake. Many men bu the Canadian  Pacific Railway and Kootenay Railway <fc Navigation Company's  steamships have shares in the company, and they recently organized  a sort of shareholders excursion to  the property. Several of the  stockholders brought rock back  and had independent assays made,  the results'of'.whicli have recently  been made public and are highly  satisfactory. The assays ran all  the way from $40 to $130 in gold,  and tlio stock at once took a jump.  Local parties asked the company to  give them a twenty days' option on  ���100,000 shares, at four cents a share,  but the offer was not accepted. The  imperial Mining Compauy has also  been formed to work claims on the  same mountain.  A. K. Stuart, formerly of Vancouver, lias taken charge of the  Whitewater Deep property as en-  gineei aud work has been restarted.  The Planet Mining Company,  which was stocked chiefly in Nelson,  is doing a large amount of work on  Campbell creek, opposite the city.  .Tames Sproule, of Spioules, had a  contract to pack a large quantity  of supplies to the property. He  has just finished the job. Much  interest is taken in the operations  of the company, but very little  news is being given out at present.  Alderman Archer, who"is one of  the chief owners of the Comstoek-  Virgiuia, on the south fork of Kaslo  river, has returned from a hasty  trip to Torouto iu the interests of  the property. He stated to The  TmiuvNE that he had put through  quite satisfactorily the business  that took him east. He also says  that he has been able to interest  people in the matter of a pulp  mill.  Good progress is being made with  the erection of cabins, bunkhouse,  etc., at the Cork miue on the south  fork. The French people who aro  interested in this property intend  to develop it for all its worth.  BIC MINING SUirSETTLED  ���-.-.?-   By a Compromise. 7  Rossland, September 0. ��� The  suit of the Centre Star vs. the Iron  Mask, which has been pending before the courts for the past two  years, and which was partially  tried at considerable cost for_ex_.  ftey  | perts,    etc.,    before    Mr.    justice  I Walkem   of   the   supreme   court  about a year since, was settled tonight.    The parties to tlio suit are  most reticient as to the terms of  the settlement. The suit was caused  the claim on  the part of the  [if Centre Star, that one of the veins  kwhich the Iron Mask was working,  \ had its apex on the ground of the  I Centre Star, in other words it was  I a   claim^.for extra lateral rights.  I This was denied by the Iron Mask  I people and experts from all over  S the continent were summoned to  I testify in the ease and among these  ? was   Clarence King, the   eminent  | American mining expert, who witli  I the others gave some very inter-  jfesting   testimony.     The case was  J,< adjourned   so   that   certain work  ��� could, be done   to   determine   on  which of the two mines the vein  really   did   have   its   apex.      The  litigation so far has been very expensive.       The    settlement     was  arrived at late this evening.  A Fleet of New Boats.  |   Pittsburg,   September    0.���The  ICommercial Gazette tomorrow will  isay. "Pittsburg and associate inter-  fests have taken costly and. deter-  lltaiined steps to insure the develop-  l|monfc of an export business in iron  Ijfand steel.   For them a hurried or-  jfder has been placed for the eon-  jfstruction of a fleet  of ten  great  IJfreighters that will ply from Lake  Ipjrie points, via the Welland  canal  fand Gulf of St. Lawrence, across  |the Atlantic.    The fleet will cost  Something like $3,500,000.    Orders  ffor  the fleet  have been  divided  among the Globe, Cleveland and  Detroit shipbuilding companies,  and the work of construction has  been begun at tho yards of these  companies. Several interests have  placed the orders, but the notable  purchasers are the Carnegie and  the Rockefeller interests."  COLD BRICK FROM THE VENUS  Getting Things in Shape.  Dr. P. E. Doolittle, .manager of  the Venus mine, came down the  hill yesterday with a $1000 gold  brick, the result of the run at the  mine since the last clean-up. The  Venus is rapidly getting into first-  class shape, and the mill has been  doing good work of late. During  the i>ast few weeks some difficulty  has been encountered owing to the  unusually scant supply of water.  TJie company built a ditch to tap  Sandy creek, and 'when this is  ready the supply will be abundant.  Thirty men are employed at the  Venus, about half of whom are,  however, engaged in getting things  shipshape above ground, the balance being in tiie miue where stoping and development are under  way.  TJie buildings at the Venus are  now complete and comprise quite a  little village. Near tiie mill, which  is a large aud substantial building,  are the superintendent's residence  and tiie assay office, the latter  being iu charge of Walter A. Segs-  worth, and equipped with a complete outfit of instruments. TJie  buildings at the camp include the  cookhouse, storehouse, bunkhouse,  reading room, stables, etc.  The tailings from the dam are  being collected in a seep-dam just  below the mill building. The compauy purpose introducing a cyanide process when the collection of  tailings warrants the outlay.  During the.mon tli of August the  Granite mill crushed 1265 tons of  ore, which produced 593 ounces of  gold and 30 tons of concentrates, of  a gross value of $11,074.  Tiie shipmonts of the Queen Bess  mine to the Nelson, smelter during  August amounted to 115 tons, tJie  returns upon which aggregated  about $6000.     .  Men are being engaged for the  Juuo property on Morning moiin-.  tail). Development will be started  onVthe IL. ,'under the direction of  Charles Parker. From 15 to 20 men  will be put to work.  Henry Roy of Rossland, general  manager of .the' London Consol-,  idated and Richelieu properties,  was in the city yesterday. He says  the wagon road is well under way  and will be pushed ahead rapidly.  The first load of wire for the  Molly Gibson tramway was shipped  from the lauding to the mine  .y___j____ln.y''' "      ���~������"~  Certificates of improvement were  issued yesterday on the May and  Jennie and Red Top claims on  Sandy creek recently acquired by  A. H. Kelly. Applications for  crown grants will be made at once.  Dividend Passed Over.  Montreal, September 0.���The  Republic Gold Mining Company  have passed the quarterly dividend, which was due on September  15th. It cannot be said that this is  a surprise, as the stock was quite  strong today. In February last  the Republic issued a circular to the  effect that the September dividend  would be provided for from  the output of the mine, but the delay iu completing the new mill has  rendered this impossible. It was  then supposed that the 200-ton mill  would be ready in July, but the  non-arrival of the machiuery will  bring the completion up to the 15th  of this month. The decision was  reached at a meeting of the directors and a circular to this effect  will be issued.  Big Coal Miners Strike.  Indianapolis, September 6.���  John Mitchell, president of the  United Mine Workers, has returned  from Ottestown, Ohio. The board  attending tomorrow will be the  most important held since, a  general strike was ordered on  July 4th, 1898, when 110,000  men were called out of the mines  for several weeks. The strike now  imminent invoices 143,000 men. Mr.  Mitchell expects the board to declare without hesitation for a general anthracite strike.  RUSSIA .WILL BE WORSTED  In the Chinese Game.  Washington, September 6.���The  latest expression as to the attitude  of the powers on the evacuation of  Pekiu comes from the United States  ambassador at Pekin, general Horace Porter, who has advised the  authorities here that the attitude  of the French government is favorable to the position taken by Russia. Almost' simultaneously with  this dispatch from general Porter  came another from the American  charge d'affaires at Berlin, giving  tJie attitude of Germany on Russia's proposal. This in substance  states that Germany, while anxious  to avoid any friction between the  powers, regards the conditions at  Pekiu such as to. require the continued presence of German forces  there.  Neither general Porter nor Mr.  Jackson give the text of the answer, but only the substance of the  positions taken by the two governments. These two ..highly important communication's bring the  Chinese negotiations to a very advanced stage, though they are not,  yet concluded, as all of the answers  are not yet in. Tho German and  French answers, however, clearly  indicate the alignment of the  powers. It is generally accepted  that Germany's attitude in favor of  remaining at Pokin will be concurred in by Italy and Austria, as  these two countries act with Germany on political questions of a  general nature. Moreover, definite  word has been received here which  clearly foreshadows Austria's posi?  tion in favor of remaining at Pekin.  As to the purposes of Great Britain  there is an absolute lack of official  information though there is little  doubt entertained that since Germany has taken the initiative Great  Britain will follow suit in favor of  remaining at Pekin.  Tiie position of Japan, likewise,  is lacking.in definitness, although it  . is believed in the best posted quarters that if other nations remain at  Pekin, Japan will deem it expedient  to remain there also. It would  seem from this that ��� France is the  only government to give concurrence to the Russian proposition,  although the United States has expressed a purpose of following  Russia's course, unless the other  powers brought about a modification of Russia's position. Thus  far Russia has not expressed any  purpose of modifying Of her original position. It was stated authoritatively today that Russia has  not ordered the departure of her  minister or troops from Pekin up  to this time, so far as the United  States government is advised.  The receipt of the communications from Berlin and Paris brought  about numerous conferences, between the president, secretary  Root and acting secretary of  =state^=_Hill.=s=It=was=gathered=  from these meetings that  another note was being prepared by  the United States, but the authorities did not feel disposed, to give  any inkling as to its nature. Aside  from tiie general question the  French government is again considering the status of Li Hung  Chang, and this subject was also  brought to the attention of the  authorities here today. There lias  been reports of prospective detention of Li Hung Chang iu case he  proceeded north, but the communications just in hand indicate  there will be no interference with  his movements. His acceptability  as peace commissioner also continues to be a subject of discussion,  there being a strong desire in certain quarters not to include him in  the arrangements.  H. Thiebault, French charge  d'affaires, and baron Speck von  Sternberg had a long conference at  the state department today, but  the purposes of their calls was not  disclosed, although they are understood to have related to the Chinese  situation. The military situation  at Pekin remains unchanged.  General Cliaffee's message makes  it clear that he for one is proceeding upon the understanding that  the American troops are to winter  in Cliina, and that he and general  Barry speak of comfortable arrangements that haAre been made for the  soldiers. The American contingent  in the parade through the imperial  palace was small, probably in conformity with an arrangement between the various commanders in  Pekin, that the force selected to  make the demonstration should be  limited in numbers in order to re  duce the chance of looting.  It is supposed here that tiie  demonstration was made to impress  the Chinese people as a whole, and  not from any. present military  necessity. Some action of this kind  appears to have been necessary, in  order to offset the stories which  were afloat in the southern Chinese  ports to the effect that the allies  had been completely overthrown by  the imperial troops and the Boxers,  which stories calculate to cause  further uprisings. Beside?, the  demonstration at the palace today  reduces the effects of any .-withdrawals. Of troops-from Pekin as a  result of the present negotiations.  BRITAInIJS TO GERMANY  Firmness; Demanded.  LoNDON.September 7.���Germany's  polite refusal to depart from Pekin  is commented upon 'with keen satisfaction in London, and the hope is  expressed that lord Salisbury will  show similar firmness. .The British  reply has not yet been formulated.  Lord Salisbury desires to consult  with his colleagues, and has notified the foreign office of his intention to return to London from the  continent early. There is little  doubt that Germany's reply is the  outcome of the discussion carried on  during the last few days between  the European cabinets, and that  the compromise policy of maintain;  ing the occupation of the capital,  but withdrawing the greater" part  of the troops to Tien-Tsin will be  found to have met with general  oencurreuce.  From Shang-Hai-it-is .'reported  that Japan has notified the powers  of her willingness to withdraw her  troops provided an "adequate guard  is left at the legations, and on condition that China formally requests  evacuations, and opens genuine negotiations for peace. Altogether appearances are more hopeful and it  is likely that when field marshal  count von Waldersee arrives, a  fortnight heuce,(at.- Taku, .lie will  find the allies agreed upon "common  policy.  .Shang-Hai is full of conflicting  rumors regarding tiie movements  of Li Hung Chang. It is asserted  that marquis Isneg and thirty officials remaining in Pekin have. ap ���  pealed to Li Hung Chang to repair  immediately to the capital to save  the situation since nobody is there  to assume authority, prince Ching  being detained in the province of  Shang Su by illness.  Boer Sympathy Out of Place.  Bar Haruor, Maine, September  6.���There was a splendid naval dis-.  play here today when five British  warsliips steamed into the inner  harbor and fired a national salute,  which was returned by the United  States flagship New York. The  British ships were H. M. S. Crescent, flying the flag of vice-admiral  -Bedford;=the=PsycherTribuner=Iu=  defatigable and the torpedo boat  destroyer Quail. After an exchange of salutes, rear admiral  Farquhar with his staff made a  formal visit to vice-admiral  Bedford on the Crescent and  at its conclusion a return call  was made by the Britisli officers,  added by their vice-admiral. This  afternoon a reception was given to  the officers of both squadrons. Just  after the British ships dropped  anchor in the Jiarbor this morning  an incident of more than ordinary  interest occurred. Near the sliore  path Edward Van Ness of New  York swung to the breeze from a  staff on his lawn a large Boer flag  and addressed liis friends in denunciation of the British. The flag-  raising made the people angry, and  a dozen volunteered to cut the pole  down without further ceremony.  Hanna Will Not Stump.  Chicago, September 6.���Senator  Mark Hanna today wired secretary  Perry S. Heath of tiie republican  national committee as follows: " It is  out of the question for me to accept  any invitations to speak." Secretary Heath said Mr. Hanna may  make a few speeches in Ohio, but  that he would positively not speak  in other states.  ALLIED FORCES  AT TAKU  Vienna Forgers Caught.  London, September 6.���The police of Buda Pesth have, according  to a dispatcli from Vienna to the  Daily Mail, captured a gang of  wholesale note forgers, including a  political lawyer named Takata and  Frau Kovacz, the well known  painter. Takata tried to shoot  himself.  Assume Respectable Proportions.  Berlin, September 0.���It is reported that the dowager empress  fled from Pekin on August loth.  Captain Pohl, under date of August  31st says the second marine battalion has arrived there.   After handing over the command to major-  general Hoeppner it will march to  Tien-Tsin with the landing force,  which   is   much/'in' need of rest.  Companies of seamen will be posted  at the halting places to protect the  water, and   land  communications.  The German admiral further reports  that the   allied   forces landed at  Taku up to August 25th were as  follows:   German, 91 officers, 3550  men, 544   horses;   Americans, 181  officers, 5437 men,  17  guns,   1230  horses; Great Britain, 718 officers,  0740 -men,   1897   horses, 23  guns;  France,  192 officers, 51S6 men, 67  guns, 570 horses; Italy, 26 officers,  552 men, 4 guns, 10 horses," Austria  16   officers,   272   men, 2  guns, 80  horses.   TJie details of the Russian  and Japanese forces landed were  not  available when the   dispatch  was sent.   A dispatch received in  Berlin from Shang-Hai, under current date, says that two companies  of Germans landed today were received by a French guard of honor  and a British band  of music, and  marched through the foreign concessions to their quarters,  Hill's Steamship Line.  St. Paul, September 6.���The  first annual election of the Great  Northern Steamship Company resulted in the election of the officers  named in the incorporation articles,  whicli are the Hill family. J. J.  Hill talked freely concerning the  plans of the company, the first  time he has done so.- The Great  JSTorthern Steamship ^'Company is  organized to build and operate  upon the Pacific ocean a line of  freight and, passenger vessels,  though . under the articles ,these  vessels may engage in any field of  commerce.. The company is now  constructing two mammoth vessels  at New London, Connecticut,  which will ply between Seattle  and Japanese and Chinese ports.  Two others will be added every  two years until eiglit such vessels  Jiave been placed in this trade. The  size aud dimensions of these vessels  will be alike, unless, as president  Hill sa.d today, it sliall be found  that even larger ships may be operated with profit. In that case the  six to follow tliose already building will be increased iu size.  The company will build at once four  smaller vessels for trade with the  Sandwich islands and coast trade.  While these vessels will be smaller  than those now building they will  be larger than any now in the  Pacific trade, so far as freight-carrying capacity goes.  .������ Big Catholic Federation.   Washington, September 6.���Advices received here indicate that  one of the most important meetings  of the Catholic priests and laymen  ever held in this country will convene at Pliiladelpliia under arcli-  bishop Ryan's auspices on September 17th. This meeting will be  attended by delegates representing  every section of the United States,  and from all the Catholic benevolent  and fraternal societies under the  guidance of episcopal authority,  wliich it is estimated embraces a  membership of fully 150,000 souls.  The object and view is to form a  federation of all the associations if  possible. Ifc was understood that  the order known as Catholic  Knights of America has initiated  the movement looking to the amalgamation, in this respect following  the suggestions recently given by  bishop MacPaul of Trenton, N. J.  Sentenced to Life Imprisonment.  Georgetown, Kentucky, September 6.���Judge Cantrill yesterday  overruled the bill of exceptions in  the case of ex-secretary of state  Caleb Powers, convicted as an accessory before the fact to the assassination of William Goebel, and he  sentenced the prisoner for life.  Judge Cantrill made an order suspending execution of tiie sentence  60 days in order to enable the defendant to procure a transcript of  the record to be filed in the court  of appeals, and an appeal was allowed.  The Parade Through the City.  London,  September   5.���General  sir  Alfred  Gaselee. commander  of  the British  Indian  troops  at  the  Cliiuese   capital,  wires as follows  from Pekin, August 29tb, to lord  George Hamilton, secretary of state  for India: "The allies marched  through the forbidden city yesterday (August 28th). The British  had third place in the procession,  the Russians and Japanese being in  greater strength."  THERE WAS NO CONTEST  In the Liberal Convention.  James Bannerman, who was one  of the Nelson delegates to the  Liberal convention at Revelstoke,  reached home last evening, ,He  says the convention was representative of the entire constituency,  with the exception of Cariboo.  When the convention got down to  business . it was decided to offer  Hewitt Bostock, the present member, a second nomination and a  telegram was dispatched to  him at Vancouver, but Mr. Bostock  replied that for personal considerations he could not accept.  The convention was then declared  open for nominations. Mr. Gregor  of Rossland proposed W. A. Galliher.  The nomination was received with  cheers. S. S. Taylor, Q.C., seconded  the nominotion in a good speech.  No other nominations being made  the chairman declared Mr. Galliher  the unanimous choice of the convention.  Addresses were delivered by the  candidate, senator Templeman, J.  C. McLagan and Rev. G. R. Maxwell, the present member for Bur-  rard.           Will Be Larger Than Ever.  New York, September 6.���A  special to the Herald from Washington says : The new estimates, for  the uaA^y to be submitted to con-'  gress will be the largest estimates  in the history of the new naval  establishment. Chiefs of the naval  bureaus are preparing items for the  fiscal year ending June 30th,  1902.  The estimates of the navy department for the present, fiscal year  amounted to $74,245,500. .Though  congress failed to appropriate the entire amount  asked for, the chiefs of the  bureaus have determined to make  another effort to obtain the sum  deemed necessary. The indications  are that the estimates to be submitted to secretary Long will  reach $80,000,000. Orders will be  issued to naval constructor Hobson,  now ill in Japan, to return to the  United States. Before being  assigned to duty he will probably  be granted leave.  Fire in a Hospital.  Portland, September 0.���Shortly  after 11 o'clock yesterday fire was  discovered in the roof of the Good  Samaritan hospital directly over  the kitchen, which is on the top  floor. The structure is a large  three-storey frame building. For a  ,time=after==the=discovery=of"=the=  flames there threatened to be a  serious loss of life. Owing, however, to the perfect discipline and  courage displayed by the nurses  and other hospital employes, assisted  by many persons who were in the  vicinity, the patients, of whom  there was a large number, were all  removed to the grounds surrounding the hospital and laid on the  grass, pending their removal to  other places. Meanwhile the firemen had gained control of the  flames, and those patients who had  already been taken to other hospitals and residences were returned  to their rooms.  The Chinese Give In.  St. Petersburg, September 6.���  Telegrams received here from Bla-  govetschensk, capital of Amur, confirm the previous reports from general Grodekoff, commander of the  Amur government, announcing that  the Chinese sent a messenger with  a flag of truce to general Rennenkampf. This occurred August. 22nd  and August 24th. The Chinese declared they would cease hostilities,  and in no case would make a f ur-  tlier attack. General Reneukampff  replied that he had no authority to  negotiate, and would push on to  Tsitsikar. He called on the Chinese  to retire without offering any resistance.    Mine Workers Strike.  Hazelton, Pennsylvania, September 0.���L. D. Nichols, of Scranton,  and Thomas Murphy, of Macadoo,  representing the United Mine  Workers, called a meeting tonight looking toward the bringing about of a settlement of the  difficulties.  GERMAN PRESS IS SEVERE  On Bussia's Proposal.  Berlin,  September   6.���Several ,  dispatches    have    arrived    from  Washington during the last   few  days which have met with various  interpretations here.   One of theset  is that the United States govern-"1  ment   intended   to   withdraw   its.  troops from Pekin if Russia did the  same.    Official circles were slow to -  believe this, however, although a>  short   Washington    dispatch    re-',  ceived here today seems   to con-'"  firm it. , .  The withdrawal of the  Russian  and American   forces from Pekin-  would, of course, upset Germany's  programme, as outlined by von Bue- ;  low's circular of July 3rd.     The  ���  press continues a lively discussion of  the Russian proposal.   The centrist,  organ, the Cologne Velks Zeitung, ,  says:    "Russia's purpose is to get ,  all foreign troops, quickly as possi- r  ble out of China, and then lay aside,  the mask and seize the empire for  herself.     Her proposal is. an  unfriendly act toward Germany, since ',  count von Waldersee announced he  would never give an "order to re- ~  treat."     '  .   - :;,-  The     Vissiche    Zeitung     says: ���  "Russia is trying to establish a pro- ���,'  tectorate over the celestial empire, - -  in doing which it makes no differ- '  ence to her. if she vexes emperor' :  William and thwarts the policy of "  Germany.''  ���������_,  Pinning Bockhill Down. }'  Shang-Haj, September 6.���Wil- -  liam   Woodville   Rockhill,   United   *:  States   special    commissioner     in"*y  China, when   questioned today re-',"'."  garding his denial of  statements --'.  made by him to a correspondent of  the Associated Press, and cabled to-;  the United States from Shang-Hai^  last Sunday,.said the state depart-"  ment had cabled him regarding the .  interview,     and   as    he     consid-'  ered    the    conversation   personal;,  he     had   felt    justified    in   ' re-,-  plying     that     he      had     given',  no   interview.   The..correspondent/  of the Associated Press on the occasion in question visited Mr.  Rock-  hill as correspondent, and  for the  purpose of inquiring   wJiether   in  Mr. Rockhill's opinion Russia would  withdraw   from 'Pekin.      As  Mr.  Rockhill did not;request the corre- -  spondent to refrain froni publishing ���  the views he expressed during the '  conversation,    the    correspondent  thought he desired them to be made_  known.

Taku, September Oth, via Shang-  Hai, August 30.���An intercepted  letter written by the viceroy of Pao  Ting Fu, who commanded at Tien-  Tsin during tlio fighting there, complains that the Boxers are overrunning the country south-west of  Tien-Tsin, particularly the cities on  the Grand Canal, despising the  officials who at first countenanced  them, and looting and killing the  enemies of their organization and  fighting the imperial troops. The  gates of Pao Ting Fu are kept  closed, and the people inside are  suffering, the Boxers practically besieging the place.  Fashionable Wedding in Hamilton.  Hamilton, September 6.���-Harry  Ledyard, son of the president of  the Michigan Central railroad, Detroit, was married today to Miss  Maud Hendrie. daughter of W. Hen-  drie of this city.

What is wanted is protective  duties   against   imports of   white  lead, litharge and other articles of  which lead is the base.   There is no  excuse in a country possessed of  the    mineral    resources . of   the  Dominion for the annual imports of  lead products which appear in the  blue   books.    There is no   reason  why the 7000 tons of   white lead  which   represents the  Dominion's  yearly purchase in Germany should  not be manufactured in Canada.  stituency of Yale-Cariboo would  endorse W.

HOW    THE    CANADIANS     FELL.  In a letter from South Africa,  hospital sergeant A. E. Ross, C. M.  R., gives some details of the battle  in which lieutenants Borden and  Birch lost their lives. The battle  took place on July 10 th and is thus  described:  "The kopje had a most peculiar  formation. The side on which the  British fought was smooth and  level, while the opposite side on  wliich the Boers were entrenched,  was thickly covered with huge  boulders, forming a natural and  almost impregnable fortress. Lieutenants Borden and Birch led two  of our troops around the end of the  kopje, so as to enfilade the Boer  trenches. That part of the kopje  which lieutenant Borden went over  was almost twelve feet high and  almost perpendicular. Before reaching the steepest portion of the hill,  trooper Brown fell, shot through  the lung. Lieutenant Borden and  the.remainder of his troop climbed  the steep hill and foundthemselves  face to face with the Boers. Lieutenant Birch and his men continued  on around the side of the kopje,  almost at its base. Boers and Canadians now held peculiar and critical positions. Some of the Boers  managed to get around behind the  -Canadians, placing the last named  in a most dangerous position. Almost as soon as he charged the top  of the kopje poor Borden fell, a  Mauser bullet piercing his heart.  "Lieutenant Birch and four  troopers found themselves in advance of the remainder of the troop,  with Boers, in front and behind  them. The Boers called to the five  Canadians to surrender, but the  plucky fellows refused to do so and  kept the forty Boers at bay. Two  rifles plugged up and were rendered  useless, and the three remaining  rifles continued to keep the Boers  back. . -  of raising his rifle when he received  a bullet wound in the side which  proved fatal. One of the remaining  four men���Mulloy of Ottawa���  raised his head, and immediately a  bullet carried away one eye and  part of his nose; poor fellow, he  may lose the sight of both eyes.  "Corporal Price was just an instant too late in firing to save Mulloy his wound, but the Boer who  fired the shot never fired again.  "Finally the Canadians cleared  the kopje, but it was a sorrowful  procession that wended its way  back to camp. Peculiar circumstances surrounded the death of  these two young and popular oflicers. Lieutenant Borden had returned to camp only the night  before. Lieutenant Birch had been  on outpost duty for two days and  was on the point of being relieved,  wheu, seeing the preparations for  the battle, he joined his troop to see  tho fray. A slight turn in tho  current of events would have kept  both of them but of the fight."  Of the conduct of the Canadian  Mounted Infantry on that day when  they relieved two companies of the  Royal Irish Fusiliers from a tight  corner in which the Boers had  placed them, lieutenant-colonel J.  Reeve, commanding the Second  Battalion, Royal Irish Fusiliers,  wrote his thanks to lieutenant-colonel Lessard in these words:  "In the few words I spoke to you  tonight at the funeral of your two  gallant officers, lieutenants Birch  and Borden, I am afraid I failed  to convey the deep gratitude my  regiment owes to the First Battalion of Canadian Mounted Rifles for  their great gallantry in going so  nobly and fearlessly to the rescue  of our beleaguered detachment at  the Wet-Poort yesterday. The  counter attack your regiment made  occurred at the most critical moment, and it doubtless saved many  of the lives of our own detachment.

"Seen the   doctor?"  lie shouted,.as he Hew past.   I had  not.    "Seven men hit down there���  two    officers���want   water."     He  added something, but was already  out of earshot.    It so happened"that  I had a large water bottle full, with  a small flask of brandy.   I went  very gingerly.     Seven   casualities  seemed sufficient,   and   I   had   no  fancy to make an eighth.   Fortunately, the railway cutting at this  point was very deep, and afforded  ample shelter.   I could see  for. a  mile in front of me in either direction, and there was no one there.  One   learns   some   things   by   experience.  I found the wounded where they  had fallen by the side of the rails.  The two first were already dead���  one hit in half a dozen places. The  third was an officer���lef t arm badly  fractured. He would not take more  than a mouthful of water.  "Others want it more���I'm all  right," he remarked, quite cheerfully.  The sixth man was bleeding profusely, and I helped him to tie his  field service dressing. After that I  went on more boldly���it was ob  vious that the Boers had gone, quite  obvious.  Where could that. seventh man  be?   I had come another hundred  yards at least, and he was not to be  seen.    I stood, right up, and took  my glasses out of my pocket to have  ^^gpiLdJ^ok^round.^^And.then^the,  Boers stood up, too.    Where ��� they  . had been lying, heaven only knows.  Half a dozen seemed to spring out  of the ground, as many more seemed  to project themselves like Mahat-  mas out of empty space.   Above,  below, behind, in front���they were  all round me.   We looked at each  other curiously for a moment.   I  was wondering vacantly whether I  should be sent to Pretoria or Lydenburg ; Pretoria, I hoped, Lydenburg I feared.  Suddenly a bright thought struck  me. I had a field service dressing  in my hand; my coat I had put  under the head of that man with  the bullet in his neck. They must  have seen me bandaging, and might  think I was a doctor.  "Have you any wounded men ?" I  asked as casually as might be. An  old man, with a long grey beard,  answered in fluent English, "My  son is hit in the head, but he has  been taken into the town. Will  you come with me and attend to  liiin.?"  I went along, through, streets  filled with armed burghers, right  into the middle of Germiston. The  wounded man was not badly hurt,  and I bandaged him with, little  difficulty.  After that my host, with grave  courtesy, brought coffee and bread  and fat. I think J felt a little mean,  sitting there and eating and drinking of this old man's best under  false pretences. I know I felt curiously thankful that his son had no  need of a more skilful surgeon.  Sol sat and ate and drank, and  through the windows I could see  the bustle and confusion  in   the  streets as the burghers rushed  about making their preparations to  retreat. Surely this was a strange  experience! It. was as though I  were sitting in the stalls of a theatre  and watching a mimic fight on the  stage.  .7^Only^this_fighting=was^reaLfight-^  ing. I coiild see shells bursting 'on  the hill, opposite, and the little  spurts of sand thrown up by the  rifle bullets as.they fell..  And the climax was still to come.  A man entered the room and said  a few words hurriedly in Dutch to  my host, pointing towards me as he  spoke.     My heart,  sank into   my  boots.   I was discovered.   The old  mau turned to me.   "This gentleman's brother was killed yesterday,  and he wants to bury him.   Will  you see the body and. give a certificate of death ?   Our law "requires  that a doctor's certificate shall be  obtained   before  burial."    I   hesitated a moment.   I have   a very  proper respect for law,   and this  thing   looked   uncommonly   like a  felony.   But, on the other hand���  We went   out into   the  sunny  streets   again, past   more   armed  burghers.   Some of them stared at  my khaki, but none stopped us.    So  I .viewed the body and signed the  certificate.  I had no difficulty in getting back  later to our lines, for the town by  this was nearly empty. Over the  kopjes behind, the rails the great  solid masses of the main column  could be seen advancing. Elands-  fontein Station was ours, and the  little township of Germiston, which  is in reality a suburb of Johannesburg.  New Batch of Pension Hunters.  Already more pensions have been  applied for on account of the war  with Spain than the number of men  who saw actual fighting service in  that war.   Such is the record of  brought up. to July 1st of this year.  In 1899 the pensions - allowed were  125 to invalids and 178 to widows.  Up to July of this year the numbers allowed were 926 .to invalids  and 888 to widows, making a total  of 1814 in two years. In the 30,981  pensions that have been-applied  for a great number are for the  widows whose husbands died of  disease in-unhealthy camps or from  eating bad beef or other food.  Black Eye Tor C. P. R.  Toronto Telegram.  By a majority of one or two votes  the British Columbia legislature has  decided to charter, the Kettle River  Valley railway despite the opposi-  =tion=of-the GrPf=Rt=^The=chartering  of an independent line to Grand  Forks is the first black eye which  the  C. P. R. has received at the  hands   of a   Canadian   legislative  body for many a long day.   An opposition which stood by the people  seems to have been the foundation  of a successful attack on the C. P.  R. monopoly.   The opposition was  recruited by a suflicient number of,  government supporters to pass the  charter    for    a   competing    line.  When the corporations do not own  both government  atad opposition,  as at Ottawa and Toronto, the fight  for public rights is not always a  losing battle.

CITY LOCAL NEWS  A   couple   of   miners   who quit  work at the Queen Bess mine because of the indifferent food provided were in the city yesterday.  They state that the company was  not responsible for the difficulty,  except that no improvement was  noticeable    after    repeated    complaints.    The supplies provided for  the cookhouse were firs .class, but  the cooking was so vile that the  men simply could not eat what was  served to them.  The Rossland Stars are after another game with the Nelson intermediate team and have proposed  to rome here to play for fche gate  ^receipts and a side bet of $100. The  local team has not yet liquidated  all the expenses of the last game,  however, and are not in shape to  put up the wager.  An accident is reported from the  Crow's Nest road. An east bound  extra freight in charge of engineer  Harry Cooper ran past a signal put  out by a work train and ploughed  into a sand bank until the locomotive was buried to her smokestack.

S.  track is also progressing satisfactorily, 120 men being employed on  the grade. The appropriation for  the latter work is $40,000.  Three prisoners were brought  before judge Forin yesterday for  election. John Manderson, charged  with fraud chose a speedy trial but  asked for time to consider his plea.-  George Mitchell, charged with theft  at Kaslo on the 1st inst, chose a  speedy trial, pleaded hot guilty,  aud secured time to prepare a  defence.

Farewell to the Australians.  Last night the Australian Comedy  Company gave their final performance in the Nelson opera house,  "His Night Out," being the bill.  The company as hitherto, gave a  most interesting and artistic presentation of the comedy. Without  doubt this is by far, the best company that has visited Nelson, their  work throughout having been meritorious, and first class in every respect. Whether in comedy, burlesque, or high class drama they  have proved themselves artists of  the first water. Jf more companies  similar to the Australians could be  induced to play here, thus cutting  out some of the rag-time outfits  that occasionally happen in, Nelson  would be able to go to its theatre  in safety and without the fear of  being disgusted. Speaking individually of the Australian Comedy  Company special mention should be  made of the work of Miss George  Elliott, Alec Cochrane, Miss Madge  Corcoran, Miss Girard, Miss Stand-  ish, and Messrs. Townsend, Percy  Ward and Jones.  quarter interest in the Transvaal  on Toad mountain by R. W. Day to  Percy Chapman; the Rainy Day at  the head of Forty-nine creek by D.  J. Steele to John Love.

Morrow has reversed the  recently appointed' district judge,  A. H. Noyes; has;reversed the receiver, Alexander McKenzie, appointed by Mr. Noyes; has granted  an appeal from the order appointing the receiver, and has directed  that until the matters at issue are  decided there shall be no interference  on the part of the court in Alaska  or its appointees. The attorneys  representing the men who applied  to judge Morrow for these orders  make charges to the effect that a  big political conspiracy has been  formed, with McKenzie as the  center, to gain control of valuable  mining property at Nome.
