NELSON:  TUESDAY MORNING DECEMBER ^5  1900  PRICE FIVE CENTS  STREETS IT PAYED WITH GOLD  The Sensational Story of the New  York Journal Had  No  Foundation.  WORK ON LEXINGTON MOUNTAIN-OTHER MINING NEWS  A story was  recently published  in the New   York   Journal which  went on to describe a bommV.a strike  of free milling ore in tlie streets of  Camborne.    The     Journal     stated  that the strike had created wild excitement   among   the   miners  and  prospectors  who were   flocking to  Camborne in hundreds to secure a  slice of the millions lying open on  the   front    street    of    Oa'mborne,  which was referred to as the  "City  of Gold."   The story was a yellow  journal yarn of the  yellowest hue.  Camborne,as most people are aware,  is located at the foot of Lexington  mountain  on  which the Imperial  Development Syndicate of Nelson  has a number of  unusually  promising   free   milling    prospects.   Jn  one of.the tunnels now being driven  a streak of ore  was  encountered  which carried considerable free gold  and it was doubtless on the strength  of   this   that   the   highly   colored  story    was     forwarded     to    the  New York  paper.    A quart/,  vein  in     the      townsite   -  of      Cani-  borrie      is      practically      impossible, as the   townsite   is   platted  on   a heavily   timbered  bench  of  black loam with gravel- subsoil ex-  tendiiij; an  indefinite distance to  . bedrock. ���* Any vein which might  exist in Camborne would be in bed  rock and possibly a thousand feet  down. The work on the Lexington  mountain' properties has drawn  attention to the. section, but, there  is practically" no one in Camborne  at this 'season c�� tho'ye-ar and.-out-.  side of the Nelson syndicate's crew  of 15 or'20 men, no operations of  any/magnitude are being carried on.  The work on the Imperial syndicate's properties is progressing  smoothly. A. H. Gracey, the engineer in charge, states that the  propositions are still In the prospect stage, and that until further  work is done it will be difficult to  give an. estimate of their merit  with any degree of accuracy. "Our  claims are the best looking prospects I have ever seen, but in the  mining, industry it often proves  that bright prospects peter out,  hence we are conservative in speaking of the properties as yet," is the  way Mr. Gracey puts the matter.  A depth of over 80 feet has been  reached on the tunnel now under  way and the showing is excellent.  .On the Criterion and Oyster groups  b*a   Lexington   mountain work   is  ybeing carriM"orrb~y~the prospectors*  Who own the ground, and it is reported that they have struck rich  roreon both.  i _���      . ��� ���*  Mining Suit. Ended.  Word was received here yesterday that Mr. justice Walkem" had  handed down his written judgment  in tho action of Manley vs. Collom,  an action tried here at the November sittings of the supreme court involving the title to valuable mineral  land adjoining the Arlington property and having the big vein which  passes through the Arlington  ground. The plaintiff, Mark Mauley  of Slocan City, secures a verdict  with costs whicli finally clears up  his title to the ground in dispute.  The judgment was foreshadowed  in judge Walkem's remarks at the  conclusion of the trial here aud  given at length in The Tribune.  It is understood that Mr. Manley  will put a crew of men at work at  ah early date.  <. The Scott Macdonald Estate.  The final Chapter" iii the legal  fight over the" estate of the late  Scott Macdonald was closed at Rossland on Saturday, when the judge  of the supreme court sustained the  award made by the registrar of  the court in the matter of succession dues. This having been settled, the estate, valued at three-  quarters of a million, will be finally distributed among the heirs. All  the old-timers in the Kootenays  knew and respected the late Scott  Macdonald and were familiar with  the pathetic story of his life. He  was one of the first.men in the  country and became interested in a  large number of mining properties.  For years he was hard up financially and then his luck took a turn,  and shortly he became wealthy.  Just as the tide of fortune turned,  however, Mr. Macdonald contracted  consumption and died before he had  an opportunity to enjoy the riches  which came after years of hard  labor.  Crawford Creek Road.  John McVeigh came in yesterday  ���from Crawford Bay to spend  Christmas in the city. Mr. McVeigh lias the contract for. the  handling of ore from the Silver Hill  mine to the lake front and has had  his stock and plant on the ground  for some time waiting for the  weather to take a turn. The lasc  frost stiffened, up the road somewhat, and with snow the teaming  would be excellent. At present  operations are confined to hauling  supplies up to the mine and bringing down small quantities of ore.  Tho crew at the mine is being increased.  - Bonded the New Victor.  11 is reported that the New Victor group in the Ymir camp has  been bonded by the owners, the  Now Victor Mining Company comprising Vancouver and Victoria  capitalists, to a syndicate whieh includes several local men. The New  Victor is "located0 on Wild Horse  creek above the Black Cock property aud is stated to be among the  most promising properties in .that  sectiou. It was acquired three  years ago by the present owners  who have put-in $2000 .to .$3000 in  development. - The.proposition is__a  free'mining gold ore carrying silver  values which are recovered through  concentrating. It is asserted that  the work to date has uncovered an  ore body four feet in width which  will average $20. The bondholders  havo a representative on the ground  at the present time arranging to  start work on the group.  Work on the Viking.  T. L. Dunbar of Spokane is spending the day in the city. He is the  British Columbia representative of  the Portland, Oregon, syndicate  which is operating the Viking  group on Ten-mile creek, a couple  of miles above Slocan City and a  mile and a half from -the Tamarac  property. The syndicate took hold  of the group, which comprises two.  claims, the Viking and Phoenix, a  couple of months.ago and have been  working steadily for some weeks^  ���with a small crew. The work-is"  confined to the Viking claim, where  some. fiue_ore running well up in  the hundreds has been found. The  formation is disrupted, however,  and up to the preseut it has been  impossible to/locate the vein in  place at any depth. A crosscut  tunnel designed to locate the ore  body is under way aiid was in 55  feet when the crew knocked off,  yesterday for a couple of days holiday. The management estimates  that the vein should be encountered  within the next fifteen days.  Will Soon Occupy New Offices.  TheC.P.R. officials state that  they will be in their new offices iu  the passenger depot' next week.  They desire to get out of the old  quarters as early, as possible, and  will move the dispatchers,' trainmaster's, baggage and ticket offices  on the date.arranged for the building to be completed. Other officials  will follow as desired. The building is not.completed- nor will it be  next week, but the work is far  enough advanced to . allow the  rooms to be used. A temporary  steam plane was attached to the  heating apparatus and the artificial  heat thus obtained, the plaster on  the walls was quickly dried.  Successful Assayers.  ,, The results of the recent examinations for proficiency iu assaying  under the direction of the provincial  assayer have been issued, and it is  announced that certificates of  efficiency have been issued to the  following assayers iu the Nelson  district: George B.

Washington, December 21. ���  General Davis when seen at the  war' department concerning the report by Dr. Williams, a contract  surgeon in the department of Porto  Rico, setting forth an appalling  state of affairs among the coffee  planters of the island, told that  from his knowledge of affairs in  that section of Porto Rico he should  characterize Dr. Williams' statement as much overdrawn. That  there was suffering in tho coffee  planting section of the country the  general said he had no doubt, for  the Iossps of planters incurred by  the big hurricane had amounted to  $12,000,000.

At the same time the  Christinas editorials found little  cause for extreme satisfaction. All  express regret that the nation is  still at Avar, and some take tho  trouble to remiud their readers that  there are four times as many troops  in South Africa now as there was  twelve months sxgo, all engaged iu  monotonous duty against an ever  evasive foe and needing the sympathy of friends at home at this  festive season. The Standard says  that Christmas finds the British  people in a chastened mood, but  confesses tliat everything has long  since been done that could be  possible to end the war.  Situation Serious in Cape Colony.  "^London,-���December���25:=-" We-  learn," says the Daily Mail, "that  the reports of the serious situation  in Cape Colony are fully confirmed.  The invading Boers are receiving  much assistance from the Cape  Dutch. Railway communication,  between Cape Town and the north  is almost entirely suspended, partly  by Boer operations and partly by  rains." '  Kruger Gets Stiff Necked.  London, December 25.���"Since  the Nooitegadecht affair," says the  correspondent of the Daily Mail at  The Hague, "Mr.., Kruger lms become stiff necked. He now scornfully rejects all private suggestions  in the nature of peace overtures.  Kitchener at Dewar.

Bermuda, December  24.���The British torpedo- boat destroyer Quail, lieutenant Rymer  commander, left for Jamaica yesterday without an escort. It is the  first time such an.attenipt has been  made. The Quail can carry only a  little coal and her plates are very  slight. The result is awaited here  with extreme anxiety. If the destroyer succeeds in reaching port it  will mean a feather in the cap of  her plucky commander.  Beresford Improving.  London, December 21.���It is announced that lord William Beresford's condition last evening showed  considerable improvement.  'Rome,  December  24.���The  pope  performed today the]'ceremony  of  closing the holy door;'of St. Peter's  cathedral with tho  gorgeous  ceremonies usual to a great function of  this  kind.    It  was   a   magnificent  spectacle. There was a great gathering of the princes of the church who  participated in the ceremonies. The  spectacle inside  the 'great  basilica  was   superb.     The -pillars  of  the  central nave were draped with gold  embroidery,' scarlet cloth  aud  the  porch,   under   which   tho  function  took place, was * transferred  into a  magnificently   decorated  hall.    On  the left of the holy door  was  erected the pontifical   throne,  covered  witli red and gold. . On  the  right  hand side of the door stood tribunes  for     royal     personages,     princes,  knights of Malta, "pi-elates and close  relatives of the nobility aiid  other,  distinguished   persons,    inside  the  church every inch of space was. occupied by n. throng!'.which gathered  early in the morning.  A strong detachment of troops  was stationed in th'e square in front  ot' the cathedral to.deeep the crowds  in1 check. ; The pope-left his apartments at 11,'15 a.-iii., borne in the  E-a-'red chair, preceded by a choir  with lighted torches, archbishops,  aud escorted by tire pontifical noble  guards. On his arrival at the-por-  tul of St. Peter's; he alighted and  entered the church through the  holy door..

Borne on the sedia  gostatoria to tho .high altar he  stepped -to the ground and knelt  before the most precious, relics of  the Catholic church, which were  displayed on the altar.  Then the procession reformed  and proceeded to the chapel of the  .Sacrament, where the pontiff again  knelt for some time while the choir  of the Sistino chapel chanted  psalms. The pope was then borne  to the holy door, where he alighted  from the sedia gostatoria and  awaited until the entire procession  had passed ont through the door,  he leaving the church last . aud  walking to the throne where the  "papal-clToil*" was, after-which lie"  arose and blessed all the material  employed in closing the door. Then  he descended from the throne,  knelt before the door and laid with  the golden trowela layer of cement  on which lie placed three gilt bricks  bearing commemorative inscriptions. Beside the bricks he placed  a casket containing gold, silver and  bronze medallions bearing the head  of-Leo iii.nl an inscription-record ing  the opening and closing of the holy  door.  The pope having reascended the  th'-one, cardinal bishop Serufino  Varumtemi, grand plenipotentiary,  and four other cardinals performed  a similar ceremony ..of. laying cement and three bricks, after which  the masons employed- by tho Vatican closed the doorway with a canvas screen', painted to represent  marble, with a cross in tho center.  The candles borne by the clergy  were extinguished, the Te Deuni  was Sung, ,'i.nd the pontiff, having  given a solemn beiied.lc.tion, was  immediately carried ' bYiek ' to his  apartments. It is estimated that  S0,000 persons were spectators of  the ceremony.  An Eight-Ycar-Old Murderer.  Nhw Youk, December 2*1.���Eight-  year-old Joseph -Bunsby is a prisoner at police headquarters, Jersey  City, accused of the murder of the  five-year-old Maggie Faleray.

German Newspapers Comment on the  American Senate's Action on  the Canal Treaty.-  The  tiny  parents  at  (Berlin, December 24.���Emperor  William's bestowal upon count von  Buelow, imperial .chancellor, of the  highest decoration, the Order of  the Black Eagle,- is interpreted to  signify imperial'.approval of his recent utterances in the reichstag,  particularly of his successful management of the Chinese debate, as  well as the Kruger incident as  against the Pan-American agitation. It is understood that his majesty regards the chancellor's present tour in South Germany as a  great success in cementing adherence of other German princes to the  emperor's foreign policy.  The National Zeitung, a journal  usually friendly to the United  States, discussing the rejection of  the Hay-Pauncefote treaty in its  original form, says: "The incident  means such a slap at the executive  as can scarcely be found not .only  i n~tlie~his tor y of Till e U hi ted_S tat_s~  but in the parliamentary history of  the world. Presumably the treaty  is not now acceptable to Great  Britain."    Attached the Exhibits.  Paris, December 24.���Thirty cars  forming part of the United States  government exhibit at the recent  exposition were suddenly laid under  embargo today at Havre, the railroad company declining to surrender them pending payment of a  claim of 5100 francs. This extraordinary action is seriously detaining the departure of the United  States cruiser Prairie from Havre  for New York with the government  exhibits, and was made the subject  of a formal protest to the French  government by United States  ambassador Porter. The company  bases its claim ou demurrage  charges on freight on the cars when  the goods were brought to the ex-  posi tiou last fall.  Fishing Disasters.  London, December 24.���The reports that" several fishing boats.-  were in great peril from the storm  and had probably been lost are  confirmed. Only one boat out of  five has been found and it is known  that no fewer than 22 fishermen  have perished.  Pole-Carew to Marry.  London, December 24.���General  R..

Typhoid was subsiding. Smallpox  had almost disappeared, there being  but two cases iu the district. Five  thousand vacinne points reached  Dawson December 18th and compulsory vaccination was started.  David Morain, a miner on Last  Chance creek fell down a shaft on  the 14 th and was killed.  Dawson prices went down on the  14th on all commodities to a lower  figure than summer prices.  Discoveries of rich quartz mines  have been made on.Bonauza and  elsewhere in the Klondyke district,  some assaying over .$50��to the ton,  none less than $10 and one $690.  Dawson papers print the news  that .Joseph S. Lancaster is believed  there to have been murdered at  Seattle. He disappeared there some  months ago and Mrs. Wylie, now at  Dawson, says that Mrs. McNamee  told* her that the latter woman's  brother said he would kill Lancaster.

The  facts were that the rock was quite  bare when the vessel struck, and  passing the line ashore was made  with comparative ease.

A most exciting incident is reported from the Transvaal in which  Jack Simmons, an old cow-puncher  of Macleod, figures conspicuously.  The story goes that Simmons, who  is a sergeant iu Strathcona's Horse,  was out in charge of a scouting  party and on approaching a farm  house,, observed the white Hag flying. The party accordingly rode  right up, but were saluted by a hail  of bullets that' emptied several  saddles. The Strathconas retreated  in good order and then surrounded  the farmhouse and after a stubborn  resistance, the Boers were compelled  to surrender at discretion. There  were seventeen of theni, and Simmons said, "We will teach a lesson  to those brutes who fire under  the     white     flag. String      up  sixteen of them aud we will let one  go to tell the others of the manner  in which Strathcona's Horse treat  wretches that fire from behind a  .���'white flag." So ropes were  brought and seven of the Boers  were hanged to trees, and the work  was going on merrily when a British officer rode up and put a stop  to it to the unspeakable relief of  the Boers, who were yet awaiting  their turn.���Macleod Gazette.  Exciting Maihe Man-Hunt.  The most exciting man hunt that  has been undertaken iu northern  Maine since the United States marshals went to storm the* fortress of  George Nadeau away up the St.  John river, is now iu progress.  Game warden Herman Templeton  aud guide Ben Woodward of Kineo  have started for Baker lake to capture "Old Pete" Fountaine, the  king of all poachers. For 40 years  "Old Pete" has set the laws and the,  wardens at defiance, and in that  time any officer 'of any reputation  has tried to bring him to Bangor  for trial. Some have found his  camp in the deep woods, but somehow or other wheu they got there  the old mau had disappeared.  Many offences are charged against  "Pete," including smuggling, and  the result of the hunt for him is  awaited with great interest and  considerable apprehension. The  orders are to bring him in dead or  alive.  An Insane New Yorker.  London, December 24.---.

There was not* that prodigality  ���in-thergiving;o_7Christmas.:presents  this year as. has been the custom in  former years. Is_ this .because.our  people, are less generous or less  neighborly, or because they are  more wise ?  would ask for them, was accepted by  less than, half. a. dozen people in all.  In addition,.he firm sent out a number to those whom they- knew to  be deserving poor. This speaks  well for Nelson, a town of over  seven thousand population, and it  sneaks well for the country on  which these seven thousand people  depend for a living.  " A resident of Swansea, in East  Kootenay, writes The Tribune and  censures it for publishing W. T.  Stead's .views on. the . situation in  South Africa. The Tribune is a  newspaper, and has not time or  space to comment on all the news  that it prints. Mr. Stead is more  or less a sensationalist, and like all  such writers goes.to extremes.  New Zealand, socialistic as it is  in its tendencies, sent more volunteers to help outrthe mother country  in South Africa, than any other  colony, according to population  and wealth. Canada did not- do  half as well as Australia.  The TijUBUNE doffs its hat to the  Salvation Army Band, .ind wishes  its members a Merry Christmas, as  they have earned it, for they have  given Nelson more genuine evidences of: being: a .lively .town than  all other, organizations her,e: put  together.      *-' . . !  The press of-:the, province is de-.  voting' considerable attention, to  the utterances of a Rev. Spear,  who is said to .have libeled the.  people of British. Columbig. The.,  trouble with:too many- reverend  gentlemen is that they do notprac-  tice what they preach,, and then  condemn people for following ..in,  their footsteps.  One of the evidences that the  people.of Nelson are in good cirr  Icumstances is   the   fact   that the  nnd offer of P.

One was born in New Jersey, the  other in North Carolina.  Through the Suez Canal.  Tacoma, December 2*1.���The British ship den Lochie now in the  harbor, is to establish a precedent  in the exportation of Pacific coast  wheat. She is to load with 221,100  bushels in sacks and will sail for  Liverpool via the Suez canal, being  the first steam vessel to go from  Tacoma to Europe over that route  with wheat. There is a difference  in favor of the Cape Horn route of  1800 miles, but the price of fuel at  the ports in South America is so  much higher that it is believed it  will be economy to steam the additional 1S0O miles. Tlie den Lochie  will coal iu .Japan and at Port .Said,  which it expects to reach in 05 days  or less.        Kerrigan Held.  Philadelphia, December 24.���  The coroner today investigated the  death of lid ward San ford, professionally known as Joe Barr, who  died in a hospital Saturd.ay night,  after a boxing bout with Joseph  Iverrigau at the Athletic Club of  Philadelphia. The jury rendered a  verdict that Sanford's death- was  due to hemorrhage of the,brain.  Kerrigan was held to await the  action of the grand jury.  TO THB ELECTORS OF NELSON:  At tlio ronuestof i*. number of electors, l-h:*.Vf>  decided to oil'er myself ns a candidate for mayor  at, tho con ling civic elections., I have served as  aldei-jnan two years of the , four (lining  which the cit.v has been conducting its own affairs, and my record while in 1 lie council on the  questions that arc now the most important issues  before the people of the city, is.suclt as .will bear  inspection.    .  -  1 believe that, the city, has valuable assets in the.  water and electric light systems, and -while in  the council I did everything possible to safeguard  these asset,-*: and if elected mayor no act or vote  of mine-wi'l be in favor of allowing any oulhide  corporate interest to become a competitor with  the city in the business of electric.lighting, a  business in which Ihe city has already invested  SiO.O-Ki.  While in the council in 1897, T voted in favor of  incorporating a fair wage clause in all contracts,  and that principle was carried out in both letter  and spirit. I see no reason lo change my .views  on that question now. A nd I beliovo,- further,  that with competent foremen-and1 superintendence that the city can get as good value for the  money spent by having the great bulk of its work  done by day's labor as by the contract system,  and no good reason can be advanced why the  city should not pay the same rate, of wages.and  work men tho same number of hours as prevails  in private entorpri&es.  I am in favor of giving lhe busines3 and property interests every safeguard possible, and to  that end I believe the fire department should be  made as efficient as possible, consistent with tlio  revonues of tho cily.  Nelaon should be kept in advance. of its rivals,  and everything possible must be done to induce manufacturing enterprise? to locate here,  for it is the payrolls that build up the cities of  today.  Nelson, a western city, is as orderly and-law  abiding as oastern cities. This is becauso the.  people of Nelson aro tolerant. I believe that this  spirit of toleration should be continued, and I  will If elcsted mayor do no act to abridge or curtail the rights or piivileges of one olassof our  citizens merely because another class may have  difl'eront views.  The ci'y has made a start in permanent street  improvements, and I am in favor of continuing  these improvements ns fast as possible, with due  recrard lo the revenues of the city.  If elected mayor, I am in a position and will  pledge uiyself-to devote-my-tinie to-the-coniuct-  of the city's bufinesj.  FRANK FLETCHER.  Nelson, Decomber 15th, 1900.  A  CARD.

It appears from the  testimony that two of the prisoners  wei-o responsible for the death of  the wife of one of their neighbors.  .Witli seven or eight other men  they went to the house of a native  named'../Victor Pero and forcibly  took him and his wife, to the.Panay  riyer, where they bound their hands  behind them and" told them their  last:!day had come. The woman  was struck with a bolo and her  dead-body thrown into the river.  Hei'vhusband witnessed her murder  and anticipating similar treatment,  notwithstanding his arms were  pinioned, managed to reach^ the  opposite shore. According to the  witness' the motive for the crime  was,a superstitious belief that the  murdered woman Wais a witch possessed of occult powers, whereby  she had in some mysterious way  brought about the death of a.neighbor's child. The two mon were  sentenced to be hanged, but general  McArthur > mitigated the sentence  to' confinement at hard labor for  twenty'years ont of consideration  for the exceedingly low order of  intelligence and blind superstition  of, the accused.

I give her backl No  use was ��� she to me." Thus spoke  an angry Frenchman, bounding  into the naturalization bureau of  the supreme court in New York recently, and throwing a certificate  of naturalization upon the desk of  clerk .John > W. Loos. "This country were not free," he shouted.  "Everywhere I get some of those  insults. I join him on the guarantee he was a republic. He wasn't.  No freedom do I discover here."  Then he handed in a paper on  which he had written:  "Gentlemen���I, undersigned, respectfully return that paper of  naturalization. From the time I  received ifc, instead of getting the  protection like a citizen, I have received only those insults, perse-��  cutions, tortures and spoliations. I  beg to inform j'ou that for receiving such treatments I would prefer,  never to be your citizen, and beg  you gentlemen give the due information and never consider me  any more like such.

It is understood, however,  that he can renounce it by. returning to France and going through a  ceremony there. "None of -this  country do f wish,'.' Guinet insisted.  "I am fatigued of it!"

The midnight mass at the church  of Mary Immaculate was largely  attended. The ceremony was of a  deeply impressive nature and the  music contributed by the choir  admirable.  Among the best decorated show  windows on Baker street were*those  of Theodore Madson, the clothing  merchant. Decorating windows is  an art, and Mr. Madson and his  clerks are artists.  ��� The annual Sunday school entertainment of tlie Methodist church  will be held tomorrow evening at 8  o'clock...     The   program   includes  songs, dialogues, etc., by the children of the school. '*   '  In order to allow the fourteen  men and five boys  who  are employed   on  The Tribune to   eat  Christmas   turkey   in   peace   and  _    quietness, no paper will be issued  tfjjj    from this office tomorrow morning.  James    Wilks, secretary Nelson  Miners' Union, was advised by letter  from Fernie yesterday that John  Faller, a member of the local union,  had been severely burnt by an explosion in the coal mines at Fernie. _  Reilly & Benoy, the Hail-..street  jt^l blacksmiths, have received -the contract to supply the pile' shoes for  the piles to be used on the C. P. R.  bridge at Robson.   About 150 shoes  .,.    are required to complete the con-  1%    tract.  /^l John R. Chisholm was sentenced  to six months' imprisonment yesterday by ' magistrate Crease for  theft. Chisholm stole some goods  from the Home Temperance hotel  aud left for Rossland, where he was  arrested by chief of police Jarvis.  The prisoners at the jail will  have a respite from hard labor today in honor of the day. The dinner menu will be varied for' the  occasion by the addition of a plum  duff prepared with due reverence  by the jail cook. A religious .service will also be held at the institution during the day.  For several hours Baker street  was crowded last night and the  ^n^rchants^idl^"tlirivin^~biisiness7  The Christmas trade was comparatively quiet for a couple of weeks,  largely because of excessively bad  weather, but on Saturday and Mori-  day nights the stores were filled  with shoppers and all the merchants  consulted were well pleased with  the volume of business.  The east window in P. Burns '&  Company's store was dressed;last  night and the front is complete.  The second window represents a  farmyard scene, and includes frozen  sheep, geese, chickens and ducks,  the whole being finished off by one  of the mammoth turkeys imported  from Missouri. The stuffed and  lifelike figure of a typical tiller of  the soil stands behind keeping  ward over the frozen stock.  J. W. Thompson, for whose benefit 0the smoker was given in the  opera house on Thursday, was dis-  ���reharged from the Kootenay Lake  General Hospital on Monday. He  desires The Tribune to thank  those who contributed to the successful issue of'the benefit, as well  as the physician arid staff of the  hospital from whose hands he received every attention, during his  stay in that institution.  The only people in Nelson who  have cause to regret the Christmas  season are the employees of the  postoffice. For several days past  the office has been literally overwhelmed by the rush of parcels  containing Christmas gifts. The  office was piled waist deep with  bundles of every size and one clerk  'was kept busy handing out the  articles. The same condition of  affairs obtained, though in a milder  degree, at the customs office,  ATTACKED AT EARLY DAWN  How Canadians-Fought Boers.  1 ".'���*���._"  A feature of the British forces'  experience in South.Africa has been  the sudden attacks made by the  Boers, some of which have resulted  disastrously to the British arms. In  a letter to R. R. - Hedley, manager  of the Hall Mines smelter, corporal  Tom Brown, a popular Nelson man  now' on service in the Canadian  Mounted Rifles, tells., of one of these  attacks in which the enemy failed  to get   away   with   the   Canucks.  With his squadron of 100 men corporal Brown was. encamped in a  grove of -trees covering about an  acre   of   ground.. .He   says:   "We  were attacked just before dawn by  a strong force of Boers numbering  about 600 with two Krupp guns  and a pom pom. ��� I was just putting on my boots when I heard the  sentry a hundred-yards   away on  a Maxim gun challenge .and then  fire.   Immediately /a., hot .fire was  poured in from three sides, a stream  bf Mauser bullets .coming in from  close range. We could see the Boers  within   our    lines    standing   arid  firing    into-   the -fcariip.      About  the edge of the grov;e shelter trenches    had    been -..��� .dug .by    us  and  at,  guard    mount   .on    the  previous evening the-'men had been  told off to positiohs.in the trenches,  so that when the firing started we  seized   rifles   and c-bandoliers   and  rushed to our,,trenches, . We succeeded in driving back ���,the Boers  from the bush 'by a tremendouely  heavy fire.    The .enemy took cover  400 to 500 yards away-, and poured  in a continuous and'.heavy fire from  three .sides.. ..Dawn ..showed their  artillery and tlie Krupps and pom  pom started, to speak. *   Meantime  our outposts or Cossack posts had  been either captured... or driven in.  The. Boers kept: up; their fire for  nearly three hours.   At. times the  firing died away to_ft-iwhisper, only  to reopen after- a few minutes in a  furious crackling of. musketry., and  pom   pom. .  The ^ enemy* was evidently waiting for us to mount and  hit the trail and made no attempt  to rush our defences. *. Not a man  on our side stirred ' save to assist  their wounded comrades or horses  and   to  -bring   up    the - ammunition    from   the' y reserve.   . Finally    a    long   period   of    silence  ensued, and we sent .out a mounted  _pa_rbl_of,a.dozen.men,_who.returned_  with   the   report .-that  the-Boers  were retiring to their own laager  in the hills.   Then,' we. counted up  our losses, which included four- men  wounded,  six   captured   by    the  enemy, a dozen horses wounded, of  which seven had to be shot at once.  This was.pretty lucky:for us, considering we had no. artillery.   The  'first shot fired bytour sentry struck  the Boer he aimed, at fair in the  head, as we ascertained from his  hat, which was found 'after.   The  enemy: lost eight killed and thirty-  one wounded���not sobad when the  odds were 100 against 600."  After the engagement referred to  in the foregoing, corporal Brown  contracted enteric fever and went  to the hospital for 35 days. 3BLe  pulled through, however, and has  doubtless done many days' service  with his squadron, since.  District Messeiiper Service.  Sargent & Bram well, who until  lately ran a district messenger service in Vancouver, are applying for  a franchise from the city council.  They claim they-will put in .an.up-  to-date system, but want the exclusive right to do so for fifteen years,  which they are not likely to get.  No Session of the City Council.  There was no session of the city  council last night, the only members putting in an appearance were  mayor Houston * and aldermen  Arthur and Hall.- There will be a  special meeting of the council on  Thursday afternoon at 4 o'clock for  the transaction of general business.  ��� imb_p.*6_*>_i_~>r��* _*i. i mm 11  -aw  hi. _B-_z-:E_:e,s <&  -STELSOlSr  KASLO  S-A.*_*TX)0_Sr  STOVES!
