 7&&&M&  DAILY EDITION   BY MAIL  FIVE  DOLLARS A YEAR  WEEKLY EDITION BY MAIL  TWO DOLLARS A YEAR  EIGHTH YEAR.  NELSON:   FRIDAY MORNING NOVEMBER 9  1900  PRICE FIVE CENTS  fc*  ;<,&tg��:  WELCOMED HOME THE YETERAN  Nelson Does Honor to Her First Returning Hero From  ,   the South African War.  ALEXANDER S. LEE ARRIVES FROM THE SCENE OF ACTION  Alexander S. Lee, the lirst Nelson  volunteer to reach home from the  South African war, arrived here  yesterday afternoon on the steamer  .Moyie. His reception was enthusiastic if somewhat informal, but Lee  was made to understand that his  Kelson friends were glad to have  him home again and fully appreciated the fact of his having sacrificed  a year of his life in a service where  Mio rewards were few and thehard-  ships many, lie wore the active  service jacket and trousers, topped  off by a Scotch bonnet. The returned volunteer looked exceedingly well and is in perfect health,  lie came .'through': the'.: campaign  without a scratch aud was one of  the yery. few meu in the firsts contingent;- who never lost a day  through sickness. - -"a-  ��-  The Moyie arrived - here yesterday afternoon over an .hour., ahead  of time. This threw the arrangements for a reception all out of  kilter, and about the time, the  reception committee and the militia  company was preparing for the  proceedings the whistles along the  lake front announced the approach  of the steamer. A mile up the  lake the Moyie, which carried big  Hags at bow and stern in addition  to the ordinary burgee, opened  with a long blast from her whistles.  This was taken up, by the Kokanee  and International and by the mills  on the water front. The din drew  300 or 100 people to the wliai-f in a  few minutes, and when the steamer  tied up a ringing cheer went up for  the returned volunteer. > Lee shook  hands all round and was then taken  to the armory, where the militiamen of the cifcy held a reception.  Contrary to the usual rule among  the Canadian volunteers, Lee enjoyed his year in Africa. There  were numerous drawbacks of course,  but he was fortunate in escaping  wounds and illness, and after becoming hardened to campaigning,  the experience was pleasant for one  with a taste for soldiering. Lee  doesn't want any more service in  Africa but he is quite willing to go  to China or any other foreign  country should volunteers be asked  for. The Canadian regiment acquitted itself creditably and was  put into places where good stuff  was required, thereby indicating  the confidence reposed in them by  lord Roberts and lesser generals.  They achieved a lasting reputation  as~fora~gers~to~o7_3o7Dn~aft~er_tlfeir  ���fr-  arrival in Africa some wag called the  Canadians "The Thousand Thieves"  and the name stuck to them all  over Africa. If there had been  any loot in the country the Canadians would have brought back  most of it, but the vast majority  of Boers were,so poor that in nine  houses out of ten there was  nothing as valuable as a  pot of .jam. Apparently most  of the Boers seemed to live on  corn meal and milk with mutton.  The ordinary kitchen furniture  consisted largely of a three-legged  iron pot and few houses in the  rural districts had even sugar. Lee  sizes the Boer up as incorrigbly  la/.y and good for nothing. lie has  Been many fine farms which have  been in the one family for several -  generations and all the ground  under actual cultivation would be  a few acres under the homestead.  The balance of the land would be  used for grazing, farmers evidently  figuring oiit that this was less  trouble. All tho Boers seemed to  want was the actual necessities of  life and 'there were no signs about  any of the farmers' houses to indicate that they ever aspired to even  trifling luxuries. As the troops  passed through the country the  Boer women were willing to sell any  king of supplies they possessed to  the soldiers, aud so far as he saw  had but little of the antipathy to  the British as ascribed to them.  Lee was at Paardeburg when  Cronje capitulated. The Nelson  man was serving with the Maxim  gun squad under captain Hodgins,  aud they had their weapon ou an  eminence from which splendid prac- J  tice   could   be had.     During   the  siege of Cronje's laager the Maxim  disabled one Boer gnu  and played  with deadly effect on the trenches.  Some   of   the   troops    wanted   to  storm the laager with the bayonet,  but lord Roberts would  not permit  this because of the loss of life that  would be entailed needlessly, as he  had a cordon', of 70,000 men around  the   Boer entrenchment, and   the  latter must give in when they realized this fact.   A few days passed  around until on the evening of the  anniversary of Mnjuba Hill Roberts  sent a message to Cronje reminding  him   of   the state ot   affairs and  demandingsurrender on the following day.    Next morning the A$iole  line was awake to watch- developments.     When enough light* was  had   to   commence   firing   sniping  began along the British line and a  gun or two was fired to remind-the  Boers   that   tliem^were  60 or- 70  British   cannon   oi'itside  ready to  open     fire.       Then     the     white  Hag     went     up   and     a    couple  of       men       came      out       with  their hands in  the air.    When it  was seen that the white flag was  respected, for the British had been  fooled   so   many   times' that they  no longer ceased fire when the peace  signal was raised, the Boers came  trooping out of the laager.    "They  seemed to rise out of the earth;"  says Lee, "like the fairies coming  througlrthe floor in a pantomime.  The whole lot trooped out in front  of the trenches and lined up there  without arms.   It was really one of  the most remarkable spectacles of  the war.   When the troops started  in to loot the laager they discovered  that   the Canadians, had stolen. a  march.   At break of day 00 or 70 of  our men had crawled over into the  Boer camp and pillaged the wagons.  They were returning loaded with  sacks of provisions when the balance of the outfit were just starting in."  After Paardeburg Lee marched  to Bloemfontein, then to Johannesburg and Pretoria. Here he left  the regiment with major Hodgins  who has a snug berth on the railroad under construction to parallel  the Netherlands road. Major  Hodgins has' charge of a 70-mile  section and is not likely to return  to Nelson for some time at least,  as there will probably be considerable railroad building in the now  territory.  Lee states that niuch of the sickness aud discomfort of the campaign arose out of the provisions  _and���d ri nki n g~water. Wheir~th~e~  troops got ahead of the transports  they Avere in bad shape for food, on  one occasion the ration for three  days being a handful -of--ground  indian corn per day. All the men  carried the emergency ration issued  by the British commissariat, not  the bunkum article sent out  from Canada, and this came in  handy. One half of the bin  contained four ounces of meat extract .and meal and the other part  held a cakoof choclate prepared with  milk and sugar. It was a serious  offence to touch this ration without  special orders but Lee took chances  on it three times: The first occasion  was when the gun squad was left  on a kopje for the best part of 24  hours without provisions and when  the men were examined the chief  officer expressed the opinion that  they were justified. The other two  occasions when Lee bolted his emergency rations were on the long  march to Bloemfontein when the  men were expected to do 40 miles a  day on a handful of meal. He got  three and seven days C. 13. for these  offences and "confined to barracks"  on the march is not the joke it  would appear to be, for a deal of  dirty work while the balance of the  regiment sleeps is involved. Often  the food served put could not be  cooked because of a total lack of  fuel.  A Boer's farmhouse with wooden  floors or doors was a gilt-edged  snap for the soldiers, who carried  off anything which could be burned  and might be seen on the march all  next day packing bundles of sticks  with which to cook dinner at night.  Lee further believes that tlie ser  vice camp kettle was responsible  for a good share of the enteric  fever. It was so constructed that  each kettle had several seams  which caught grease. When fuel  was so scarce that the soldiers  could not get enough to more than  warm up a kettle for tea it was out  of the question to boil water with  which to cleanso the kettle properly, and many scores of them  became foul and disseminated  the corruption which bred fevers.  There was comparatively little  African or malarial fever in the  army.  The water was unusually bad  and Lee tells ' an amusing story in  connection with one camping  place. There was a tiny pond at  this spot and the brigade which  had preceded the Canadians had  bathed in it, washed' their clothes;  and the transport mules had wallowed in the pond until it was a  startling sight. The Canadians  came along next day however, did  their washing and took the water  for cooking purposes. While they  were-in camp the City Imperial  Volunteer?, a swagger volunteer,  corps from London came along, and  when Lee was at the pond- one of  the London swells walked down to  the pond with a shirt in one hand  and a piece of scented soap in the  other. As he looked at the turbid  water and saw the hoof marks, he  observed in tones of deepest disgust, "good gracious, . must "we  really wash our clothes in the  water those beastly tmules have  been drinking." 'The average English "volunteers were practically  useless, some of the Imperial Yeomanry being unable to saddle their  mounts.  The trip home was by no means  uneventful. An order had been  issued that the 330 or 400 men  could have no liquor, but the stewards"; of the Idaho had laid in  enough liquor ostensibly to supply  the officers' mess to keep the whole  outfit'gloriously drunk all the way  home. There was no difficulty  about procuring booze, tlie only  requisite being the price. . The  Idaho had 250 Boer prisoners to  discharge at St. Helena, and guards,  were kept till the steamer touched  there; After that-* the men did'as  they pleased and there was a genuine hot time aboard. The volunteers slept all. day in the sun on  deck and raised "Ned" all night  'tween decks. At Halifax the  whole outfit was dined by the city,  and then at the garrison barracks,  a feature of the latter entertainment being forty hogsheads of beer  ranged about the wall. Tlie contingent was fairly overwhelmed by  the citizens, buttons, straps and  rifles being taken from them right  and left.

P. Rism and not Blair-  ism or Tarteism that knocked out  George E. Poster in the city of St.  John. The people are aAA'akeuing  to tho fact that the Canadian  Pacific Railway Company Avields  altogether too much political  power in Canada, and they will  keep in office men like Andrew G.  Blair of NeAV BrunsAvick until railways like the Canadian Pacific  ' either go out of politics or into the  hands of the government.  Nelson claims  to be  the  third  town in  British  Columbia.     Vancouver easily ranks first, and  none  ean   dispute    Victoria's   place    as  second.    Rossland,  NeAV Westminster, Nanaimo, and Nelson are in a  bunch, but Nelson must be given  first   place among the four.    .She  not-only is third ip population, but  third in  everything that shows a  growing,  progressive town.      She  has more miles of passable roads,  sidewalks, sewers, and more blocks  of permanently improved streets ;  more water connections, more electric   light   connections,   and  more  sewer connections   than either of  the others above mentioned.   $he  Where avos the Rossland Miner  when the miners of Kootenay Avere  fighting for tho eight-hour day? It  was in tho camp of the enemy.  Whore Avas the same Rossland  Miner when the contest Avas on for  member of the legislature? Did it  support the candidate in the Rossland riding who was pledged against  the repeal of the eight-hour law ?  No; it .was again in the camp of  the enemy. , Its owners and editors  have not been changed....-if" they'.:  were not tiie friends of the miners  and laboring, inen of0.Koofcenay six  months and a year ago, it surely is  -not unfair to say.- that, their professed : friendship, now should be  taken ���.���with a grain of salt.  The report from Ottawa that sir  Charles'Tupper may be a candidate  in either * Burrard or Yale-Cariboo  may be true. ' If Burrard Avants  him, she can have him and welcome.  Yale-Cariboo does not want him,  and Avill not Jiave him. This is not  because of any personal feeling  against the veteran. There aro feAV  men iu this constituency but Avill  admit that sir Charles Tupper lias  been a power in Canada's political  life, probably not always for the  best,-but still a great power. None  will say"that he is lacking in either  courage or ability; and' he has  made a magnificent fight for a man  of his age. But Yale Cariboo has  within her limits her own sons able  and willing to battle for her  terests at Ottawa.  vaporing individuals who imagine  that party politics is the chief industry in this great but undeveloped  country.  The French-Canadians of Quebec  set-'in to imagine that they have the  same right as the people of other  sections of Canada have, that is, to  vote as they please. This is not at  all satisfactory to the people who  imagine that all people should think  and vote as they do.  There will bo just two Labor  party men iu the next parliament  of Canada, provided, of course,,  that the candidate of that party in  this-constituency is not successful.  It Avould be a fitting recognition of  the party' to offer a seat in the  cabinet to the leader of tho two,  that is, Ralph Smith, coal miner, of  Naiiaimo, British Columbia.  m-  So.aie of the Liberals of Nelson  are making threats of what they  will do to the workinginen hereafter, because the workinginen have  placed a candidate in the field for  member of parliament. This is on  a par with the threats made by  some of the Avorkingmen against  men who have the courage to:sup-  po'rt the candidate of their choice.  This is a free" country, and intolerant Liberals and intolerant Labor  party men will find that their  threats will'have little influence in  future elections.

Tlie ��one industry on which the prosperity of this constituency is  almost wholly dependent is mining; and we believe that our mining industries are as fairly entitled to protection, as the .manufacturing industries of Eastern Canada ; therefore, we advocate that the duties on lead  :and.leadLprodticts JbeJncreased. soJJiat Jihey shaU Jbe ag high as those now  imposed by tlie United .States on the same articles.  That the output of the precious metal mines is largely increasing,  therefore we favor the establishment of a mint, so that the specie in circulation shall be that of our own instead of that of a foreign country.  We advocate the restriction of the immigration of Chinese and Japanese, and all classes who cannot become good citizens of the Dominion  of Canada,- and suggest the adoption of the principles of the Natal Act.  British Columbia has not now the representation in the federal parliament tha t slio is entitled to: therefore we advocate that when the  redistribution of seats is made that this constituency shall be given representation, according to its population.  That it augurs well for the success of the party that Hugh John  Macdonald has decided to leave the field-of provincial politics to take  part in the larger one'-that affects the people of the whole of Canada.

LAY, Manager..  ��>.A  Alderman Green, the new lord  mayor.of London, is most proud of  the fact that he helped largely to  give London the Tower bridge. As  chairman-of'the-bridge house committee, he had charge of tlie report  which led _to the building . of the  finest bridge which has ever been  thrown acrpss the Thames. He  took an active part, too, in passing  tlie proposals for the electric lighting of the city.  o -���  The question whether William  Waldorf Astor, Junior, is an Englishman or an American has been  finally settled by the New York  courts. Young Astor, whose father  i-i nowaBritish subject, was selected  us executor and trustee of the will  (if .lohn Jacob Astor, and the surrogate lias sanctioned tho selection.  As only American citizens can-have  this privilege, young Aster's nationality is no longer in doubt.  Mr. Gosehen's retirement from  I lie British admiralty is attributed  h.y the German newspapers to his  having insisted that captain prince  I ,< .uis of Battenberg should repre-  .-cnc the admiralty at the funeral of  ciptnin the honorable Maurice  laiaiit-ke. The-prineo refused on tho  ground that lie was of royal rank,  and was backed by the queen. Mr.  (.'osehen insisted ami had his way,  on account of the approaching elec-  ��� ipn, but the queen demanded . that  ���'hi*-should-be-retired.    ;  The most independent literary  and political journal in Germany is  doubtless the Zukunft, edited by  Maximilian Harden, who never  hesitates to criticise the government. Recently he was again sentenced to six months'imprisonment  for an article entitled "The Struggle  with the Dragon," and the whole  i difcion containing this article was  ( r-unscated. Harden, who is a brilliant litterateur, had only recently  (ompleted six months' -imprisonment for an attack on* the kaiser  entitled "The Pudel Prince."  I'resident Loubet has just been  left a legacy of thirty thousand  dollars by a grateful old friend,  madame Ferret. For more than  forty-five years M. Loubet kept up  friendly relations with madame  ���Porreb's���husband,���who���was���his  neighbor at the president's native  place, Marsanne, and in his capacity  as lawyer had managed all M. Perret's legal affairs, drawn his business documents, and generally been  his life-long counselor and friend.  After the death of Perret's son, iu  1893, Mine. Perret devoted herself  to charitable work, and M. Loubet  was charged with putting the  ��� donations into legal form. These  .amounted to about six hundred  thousand dollars, one of them  going to found an orphanage at  Collonges, and another a hospital  for convalescents at Lyons. About  the same amount will remain after  the legacies named in Mme. Perret's  will are paid, and this also is to be  applied to charity.  Lady William Beresford, formerly  Lillian, duchess of Marlborough,  has brought action against the  young duke of Marlborough to recover the ��� money which she spent  in improving: Blenheim palace during the life-time of the last duke.  The matter came np originally  when the' present duke succeeded  to the title, ..but. owing to. the  friendly relations existing between  the duke and his step-mother, it  was temporarily arranged. Since  the duke's marriage to Consuelo  Vanderbilt, it is rumored an estrangement has grown up between  lady "Beresford and her step-sou.  On more than one occasion, it is  said, the young American duchess  snubbed her countrywoman (for  lady Beresford was formerly Mrs.  Louis Hammersley of New York)',  .until the latter determined she  could not submit to such treatment  any longer, and she now asks  the  law to compel her step-son to return the amounts she spent on  Blenheim. .  Oscar Hammerstein, the indefatigable New York theatrical manager, holds the American record for  building play-houses. Only a few  weeks ago his seventh theatre, the  Republic, was opened by James1 A.  Heme, in his play, "Sag Harbor,"  and now he announces that he will  crown his career by erecting a home  for melodrama which will eclipse  any theatre of its kind in the  United States. Two years ago, it  will be remembered, his costly  building, Olympia, including a  first-class theatre, a vaudeville  theatre, a concert hall and a roof-  garden, was taken aw.ay from him  by Jiis creditors, and he was left  practically penniless. But he had  plenty of friends who were willing  to give him a helping hand, and  since then he has erected the Victoria and the Republic, which have,  proved big financial successes.  Among the other theatres which  this intrepid manager has built in  New York are the Harlem Grand  Opera House., the Columbus, the  Harlem Music Hall, and Roster  &Bial*s.    LONDON'S   DOG   CEMETERY.  Laddie, the Scotch collie that  mourned himself to death for his  master, lord Airlie, who was killed  in a leading cavalry charge against  the Boers in South Africa, now  lies in London's dog cemetery, at  Hyde Park.  Laddie, who had long grieved  over his master's absence, seemed  to know the full meaning of the  bringing home of lord Airlio's remains iu a casket. Then the faithful dog lay down beside the Hag-  wrapped coffin, his. great brown  eyes filled with the grief he could  not speak. Laddie did not care to  live in a world without his master,  'and. in a way almost human seemed  to understand that death meant a  last'godd-bye. r  Lord Airlie's coolie was buried  amid a myriad of tiny tombstones  which mark the graves of dogs in  this unique cemetery. It is a tiny  place, merely the yard to the keeper's lodge, at Victoria Gate,' but  there must be at least three hundred graves here. The first one  was made nineteen years ago, and  now there is scarce space left to  bury a canary bird.  A good two hours' time may be  spent in reading the epitaphs. The  tiny slabs and monuments that are  here erected to the memory of de-  ipar��edybio\5^yjOLWs==iuepresentl==not^  alone a foible of the rich, but throw  light upon certain phases of human  nature not met with every day.  One bit of granite makes you smile,  it betrays ��� such frailty of mortal  mind; another wins your respect  through its very humanity.  Here are some of the most interesting epitaphs.

Whalebaek mountain, eleven  miles east of Nelson on Five-mile  creek, promises to become a free-  milling camp within the next year  or two. Charles Munroe and D. T.  Mowat have returned to the city  after spending several months on  the Orcadian group and brought in  samples whicli have been assayed  here. One sample went $19.27,  while two others claimed to be  fairly representative of the property went over $00. The group  includes the Orcadian, Viana, Denmark and Norsman' claims, and  there are but four other claims  staked on the hill. The Newsboy  property is two miles a.way. The  Orcadian group has a number of  veins, three of which are free-milling running east and west with a  dip .to tlie. north. One of these  shows-'2b';':fee".t; of :quart*7*near-dis-  covery, while the others ' on the  group average "-18= inches to four  feet. .Thei free 'milling quartz is  identical iu appearance with that  from Morning mountain. On intersecting -'yeins the quartz is charged  with galena; lint no assays have  been made to determine the merits  of this deposit.  Messrs Munroe and Mowat. went'  into the Whalebaek country this  summer and prospected much of  the hill. The actual work accomplished was confined to stripping  the large Vein, but the prospectors  are enthusiastic over their locations  and will-go back as soon as the  snow is off and work all summer on  the Orcadian.?,.
