 DAILY EDITION   BV MAIL  FIVE DOLLARS A YEAR  WEEKLY EDITION BY MML  TWO DOLLARS A YEAR   *  rJj&&:''  ri*��  jAv  "���   fit*.  *f**Vr  ** J-*.  EIGHTH TEAR  NELSON:1MONDA^MOR_p_TO DECEMBER 17 1900  PRICE FIVE CENTS  NELSON'S NEW POSTOFFICE  BUILDING   OPERATIONS  IN  THE  CITY  DURING 1900.  Nearly Three Hundred Thousand Dollars Has Been Expended During  the Year���General:Details.  Two excellent views of Nelson's  new postoflice are presented herewith. The cuts are reproductions  of the sketches prepared in the  office of the Dominion architect,  and give an accurate idea- of the  appearance which the building will  present when completed.. It has  been estimated that the new post-  office will cost from $70,000 to  $75,000.  The building operations in the  city of Nelson for the year 1900  aggregates over $300,000. In the  appended list Thr Tribune itemizes a number of buildings,.the cost  of whieh totals $27.5,000,. to which  must be added from $25,000 to  .$50,000 for buildings, not included  and regarding which it is difficult  to secure information readily. The  aggregate is up to last year's mark,  and this points to the fact that in  the building line the residential  district, lias far outgrown the  records of previous years. As a  matter of fact about twice as many  houses- have been built this year  than was the case last year, hence  the large total of the building operations.  . _ The Kirkpatrick - Wilson ��� Clements-block, at the corner of Baker  aud Ward streets, is by long odds  the year's most important addition  to Nelson's business blocks. It .was  commenced;��eaily^in*"~-the. summer  and^will be ready for occupation by  New, Year's. The plans for the  block were' prepared by E wart &  Carrie and the contract for its construction was taken by W. G.  Gillette,, From top to bottom the  new block- is neatly designed and  well built. All the stores and most  of the offices are rented iu advance,  and within a few weeks the building will be a hive pf industry.  TheC"P." It. buildings are next in  importance. These include the new  passenger depot, freight shed, locomotive house and other buildings  under construction, the cost of  which will not be less than $80,000.  The school board building, erected  by., the sisters of Joseph at the  corner.of Mill and Josephine streets,  is almost completed and will bo in  use when the school reopens after  the'holidays.. The plans for the  building were prepared by G. D.  Curtis and Martin Madden took the  contract. The. building is well  -adapted-for-the-purpose-to-which-  ic will be put and is a creditable  addition tot Nelson's schools.  The Emanuel Congregational  church is another valuable addition  to Nelson's public buildings. It is  centrally, located and decidedly attractive in appearance. .  In compiling the appended list of  building operations, This Tribune  received valuable assistance and information from Ewart & Carrie and*  Cane & McDonald, architects, .Tohn \  Toye, W. G.

Local Theatricals���Festivities  '   . for the Winter, Etc.  Greenwood, December 15.���  [Special to The Tribune.]���Municipal elections are-'abw eLsjrossing the  attention of the community, and  there promises to be a. pretty stiff  fight put up by the two candidates  in the field for the mayoralty. The  aspirants for the chief office in the  gift of the citizens are Dr. R. W.  Jakes, a pioneer physician, and  Duncan Ross, ,managing editor of  the Times. The present incumbent,  mayor Thomas-Hardy, has been in  "office for two'successive terms, and  "at first it was generally believed he  would _nin- again, but for several  months past'lf., most peculiar condition has existed here. .The mayor  is interested "hi-business both  Phoenix anil tyis city. Naturally  being at the "head of Greenwood's  civic administration he was more or  less in demaitcl to attend? to the  city's business.'jjbut instead.of living  here he has 'resided " at Phoenix,  only giving to the city a few-hours  of his time at the weekly council-  meetings. This rather curious  state of affairs has not met with  the appreciation,, of business men,  and knowing it .the mayor wisely  kept out of the contest." But two  of his staunch supporters, alderman  James Sutherland and commissioner  C J. McArthur, 'wishing, evident-  ally,   to   perpetuate   the methods lr  nex and had gained-great headway before, discovered, and only a  few effects were saved; James McNeil, the owner, was absent at  Eholt, where the reflection was  plainly visible, but before - he could  return home.everything was. gone.  At the time-of the fire J. R. Porter,  an insurance agent of this city, was  in the front part of the building,  staying, over, night. He was there  to get a renewal of a policy which  had only 12 more days to run, but  the fire put an end to his chances  of doing business. it is hardly  likely that Mr. McNeil will rebuild.  From tonight the Auditorium  will be dark until the evenings of  the 24th and 26th instant, when a  grand treble bill will be given by  local talent. The "Dude and the  Dame" and "The Cup of Tea," two  laughable comedies, and a musical  skit   entitled    "Crazed"    are   the |  16,250 shares in this company. His  interest in the tramway company  was a quarter of the $100,000 capital, or 25,000. shares. In connection with this last company it may  be stated, that A. J. McMillan of  v Rossland is now on his way to  England and a part of his mission  is to secure capital for thi*P undertaking.  In a social way the winter season  promises to be a lively one. Already several large card parties  have been given. Last night Dr.  George Foster and',A.'M. Whiteside  entertained a big house party at  their residence in honor of Miss  Whiteside who is visiting with her  brother. Cards occupied the attention of the fifty guests during the  early portion of the evening, and  after a recherche supper, dancing  was indulged in to a late hour.  This evening the members of the  A LONG LEAVE OF ABSENCES  REV.  ROBERT   FREW - WILL  ALLOWED A YEAR.  BB  %>.

New York, December 16.���The  six day bicycle racers were today  suffering severely from the effects  of their hard riding. So severe had  been the test upon their systems,  particularly their nerves, that  sleep was almost an impossibility  for some of them last night, after  the conclusion of the race.  promulgated    by    mayor   Hardy,  brought,  out   Dr.   R.   W.   Jakes.  Next came Duncan Ross into thei  field,   backed   by   a    petition    of  ratepayers.    Mr.   Ross   has . been  a     bitter   opponent     of    .mayor;  Hardy's.   administration.,    on   account    of   the.   latter'a   methods  of transacting the, city'a business.:  He and .his friendsclaim 'that municipal affairs were conducted  without any reference to the. Municipal  Act, and-as a resnlt the city] has-  been mulcted in several heavy damage suits.   Mr. Ross in his address  to the electors state9 that he expects to receive remuneration for  his services.  Fire last night destroyed- McNeill's hotel at Summit-City. It  was a substantial two story frame  building, plastered throughout, and;  with its contents was. valued at  $10,000. It was insured for $7,500,  divided among four companies.  The fire started iu the kitchen an-  attractions. Those taking part are.  Mr. and Mrs. J. E. Hooper, W. W.  Howe, G. N. T. Hill and N. Leese.  It will be Mr. Hooper's.first appearance in this city- the others, how-  every have already earned s-the mos t  favorable opinion of* local theatre!  goers; Their recent performances  duringthe church of England: ���.���'fair:*  ranked themfar above the average:  .amateur players.  A local deal;of; some importance,  in: which Nelson people are said .to-  be,interested,,is the disposal of the  interests of George B. Collins in the  Greenwood Electric Company; and  the Greenwood ��fc Phoenix Tramway Company. Mr. Collins declined:  to state the names of the Nelson  gentlemen to whom he sold when  asked tonight by the correspondent  of The Tribune. The Electric  Light Company, which supplies  both Phoenix and this city, is  capitalized for $75,000, in 75,000 one  dollar shares,    Mr. Collin? owned  Junior Whist  Club, to the number of foi ty, at e  holding a dance  at-tho���Windsor  hotel. The ladies  of; the" Skookum  Tillicum Qu.ad-  i ille Club have  sent out invitations for a masquerade ball to  be given at tho  Wiudsor hotel  onthe2Sth. The  members of the'  Greenwood Miners'- Union-, have  announced a big  dance for the last  day of the, year,  and withal; it  would seem that  Greenwood will  be lively.  A Record Breaking Court. !  Mr. Justice Walkem is still hold-!'  ing the/ supreme court sittings in;  Rossland;":   Court opened there oh  -November 12tii and has. continued;  steadily since.*' The action of .Sau-:  icier vs. Mackintosh is now  being:  heard,1 and it is thought the docket-  will -., be finished   tomorrow.     The  shit in question is brought bj* J. E.  Saucier, a. Rossland  mining man,  against   ex-governor    Charles    H.  Mackintosh   , to      recover     $3000.  alleged to be due him as commission on the sale of 75. acres of land,  an addition to the townsite of Rossland.    One.more case remains to be  heard before the adjournment.  The remains of the late Harry A.  Gevvan.'.who was killed in an explosion at the Ontario Powder  Works last spring, were disinterred  ou Saturday and shipped to  Ottawa, Ontario, yesterday morn-  of  continued ill  health.     In  the  course of the sermons, morning,and  evening,  various happy references  were_made _to���the���phenomenal  success     which     had      attended**  the work of tho denomination ia  past years, and tho forecast made _,  that   further     prosperity    would  attend the.work in the future   At  last night's service the music was  of a special nature.     Mr.  Grizzelle  contributed an admirable solo, and  the choir rendered* a couple' of'-an*- ���"-*"  thems, a feature of one being the  solo by Miss Sutcliffe in which  her  clear soprano voice was heard to  splendid advantage.   At-the close  of, the ������. service   a    congregational  meeting was held to consider Rev.  Mr. Frew's decision tliat his precarious  health ; would   absolutely  force him to relinquish his pulpit  work for an-extended period.    The  members united in an expression of  keen regret that   their   esteemed  pastor should be compelled to take  this stand and in the hope that- it  would not necessitate his severing his  connection: with the congregation.  In order, if possible, to; retain- Mr.  Frew's valued services it was unanimously   decided   to grant   him' a  year's leave of absence.   The managers of the church were authorized  to   arrange   for   suitable- supplies  during this period.  Mr. Frew leaves this week for  Kamloops, where he will spend  some time as the guest of a clerical  friend.     '__,   Return of Van Home.  Montreai,, December 10.���Sir W.  C.

The building to be erected here by  the Dominion government is only  in keeping with tho amount of  **���reverine-paid-by-the-people-who-  trade at Nelson. No town of the  same size in Canada contributes a  like amount of revenue, and no  town in Canada of the same size  ���will have a finer public building.  The Nelson Evening Miner will  .always blunder if a blunder is  possible.   It stated that because the  ���Arthur - Hall - Robertson - Duucan  combine had induced alderman Mc-  * Killop to run for mayor that the  people must accept the candidacy  .'without a protest; that these four  good and influential  men were so  .good   and   so   influential   that   it  * would be useless for the remainder  of the people of Nelson to oppose  their wishes. The people of Nelson  happen to be the most independent  . of any city in Canada, and they  - propose to have not only a voice iu  selecting their candidates for office,  but a vote in electing those thej--  .select. The Arthnr-Hall-Robertson-  Duncan. combine will be smashed to  smithereens on Thursday, January  17th, 1901.  Over one hundred electors signed  ' a requisition asking ,Tohn A. Turner  to become a candidate for mayor.  After giving the question due con-  * sideration, Mr. Turner decided that  ' he could not accept because of personal and business reasons. At  present Mr. Turner is government  agent at Nelson, a posi^-n of  Responsibility.     He has fjm?  the  office so satisfactorily, that his  friends - believed he ' would m.ake  equally as satisfactory a record as  mayor, at a time when the management of the city's affairs not only  need to bo directed by a levelheaded business man, but by a man  who had force of character. Mr.  Turner possesses both. But he' declined. The men who requested  Mr. Turner to make the race were  determined that Dr. Arthur and  Dr. Hall and J. Roderick Robertson  and captain Duncan had no legal  right to dispose of the first office  within tho gift of the people as  their free-will offering. The statement that the candidate of Dr.  Arthur and Dr. Hall and Mr.  Robertson and captain Duncan  should not be opposed because of  -their-having-brought-him-out-was-  resented by the people who believe  one man's vote is as good as another's, aud on election day they  will show these four worthy gentlemen that they cannot dispose of  the office of mayor as they can of  their personal effects. A largely  attended conference was held on  Saturday night, and the result of  that conference is an announcement  that appears on this page. Frank  Fletcher will lead tlie fight against  the Arthur-Hall-Robertsou-Duncan  combine. Mr. Fletcher is on record  on the Bonnington Falls Company's  attempt to gain an entrance into  tho eity, and that record will do  much to make him the next mayor  of Nelson. This is a fight of the  common people who believe in  equality of rights against a class  who believe the common people  should be seen but not heard.  The New Eoller Mill.  Montreal, December 16,���The  announcement made Saturday of  the establishment of a $5,000,000  plate aud roller mill at Sydney, C.  B., b'y the Dominion Iron and Steel  Company caused great interest in  Montreal and was increased by a  statement made by a gentleman  interested in the concern, that iu  the near future a big iron ship  building plant would bo located at  Halifax. Application for assistance  probably will be made at the next  session of the Dominion parliament  and Nova Scotia legislature.  TO THE ELECTORS Of KELSON:..  At the request of a number of electors, I have  decided to oJFer*niysolf as a candidate for: mayor  'at the coming civic elections. I have served as  alderman duriiiK two years of the four during  which the city has been conducting its own affairs, and my record while in the council on the  questions that arc now the most important issues  before the people of the city is such as will bear  inspection.  1 believe that the city has valuable assets in I he  water and electric light systems, and while in  the council I did everything possible to safeguard  thoso assoU; and if elected mayor no act or voto  of mine will be in favor of allowing any outside  corporato interest to become a competitor with  tho city fn the business of electric lighting, a  business in which tho city, has already invested  $70,000.  While in the council in 1S97, I voted in favor of  incorporating a fair wage clause in all contracts,  and that principle wascarriod out in both letter  and spirit. 1 see no reason to change my views  on that, question now. And I heliovc, further,  that with competent foremen and superintendence that the city can get as good value for the  money spent by having the grealbulU of its work  done by day's labor as by tho contract system,  and no good reason can bo advanced why the  city should not pay tho samo rato ot wages and  work men the same number of hours as prevails  iu private enterprises.  lam in favor of giving the business aud property interests overy safeguard possible, and to  that end I believe the fire department should be  made as efficient as possible, consistent with the  revenues of tho city.  Nelson should be kept in advance of its rivals  and overyth'ng possible must be done, to induce manufacturing enterprise* to loc_t.3 here,  for it is tho payrolls that build up the cities of  today.  Nelson, a western city, is as orderly and law  abiding as eastern cities. This is because the  people of Nelson are tolerant. L believe that this-  spirit of toleration.should be continued, and I  will if elected mayor do no act t o abridge or curtail the rights or piivileges of one class of our  citizens merely because another class may have  dill'erent views.  Tho city has mide a start in permanent street  improvements, and I am in favor of continuing  tnese improvements as fast as possible, with due  regard to tho rovennes of the city.  If elected mayor, 1 am in a position and will  pledge myself lo devote my timo lo the conduct  of the city'd bu'ines?.  FRANK  FLETCHR1"*..  Nelson. December loth, 1900.  WILL TEST THE PONTOON  An Interesting Experiment.  An interesting experiment will be  made at  Procter, this   week  when  the landing there will be tested to*  determine its practicability for.un-,  loading cars from the barges.   This"  slip has been under way for a couple  of, months and it now remains tojbe.  seen whether it will work perfectly."  An entirely new idea  is  involved,  and its feasibility is  of A'ery con-,  siderable importance, in addition to  which it may be stated that the innovation was evolved from, a' suggestion   made   by   captain   J.  W.  Troup, superintendent of Kootenay  and Boundary rail and steamboat  lines.   When a slip w.as needed at  Procter,     captain    Troup    figured  out a scheme  which  would   save  the      company     a      considerable  outlay      besides      being      much  more   readily    handled   than   the  slips   constructed   in the country  previously.   The scheme wai placed  before   the    company's   engineers,  who reduced  it  to data and were  convinced that it would work.   The  idea has been put into effect, aud in  a   few   days   it" will    be    known  whether or  not  the  innovation  is  practical.    In event of; this proving1  to be the case, a- revolution will be  introduced iuto.thc.system of shipbuilding.    The engineers are thoroughly satisfied that.the   scheme  will work satisfactorily, and .the  onlythingthey���fear-is-that-some-  slight   oversight   may  have   been  made   in   providing    against    the*  various   contingencies  to  be   met.  Such an oversight  could  probably,  be remedied with some slight alterations.  Briefly, captain Troup's idea is to  do away with the bridge which has  heretofore been a prominent feature  of all slips and to substitute therefor a floating pontoon.   The bridge  is constructed on the  seaward  end  of the movable slip.    It is,  iu- the  case of the Kuskonook slip for instance,  a  drawbridge   50  feet   in  length and weighing about 20 tons,  the   whole   being  moved   up   and,  down to correspond to the level  of  barges by means of winches  reinforced   by heavy   counterweights.  The pontoon does  away  with  the  bridge   and   all   its   cumbersome  apparatus.    It is a floating arrange- i  men.  about   50 feet long  with a  shovel-shaped   nose   pointing    out  into the   lake  and  conforming in  contour      to       the       prow       of  the      barge.        As      a      loaded  barge   approaches   the   slip,   it is  forced against the shovel prow of  the pontoon and a natural result of  application  of this pressure is to  cause the barge to climb as it were  on to the pontoon, thereby forcing;  the pontoon down   to its own level.  The couplings are then  made and  the unloading proceeds.    In  event  of a  few  inches  one  way  or  the  other remaining after the climbing  process is carried to its utmost  extent, a simple arrangement of jack  screws   effects the desired  result.  This is' the theory of the idea and  it remains  to be seen  whether it  works out perfectly in practice.  The pontoon idea ia a new thing  to  ���^' 00 ' 00' 00 ' 0*' 00 ' 0*' 00 * &**' 000 ' 00' 00 *  to  to  to  Holiday  Novelties  j   Arriving Daiiy..   |  txti*a-ax*__**__i*!_u*:x*:irz_r3___  FRED IRVINE & CO.

Ford    cables    this    morning's  Tribune-as  follows:    The  anniversary of the battle  of  Colenso was  celebrated by  the  departure  from  .Southampton of the  first  detaeh-  mont   recruited    in    England   for  v. Uaden-Poweirs police   and by arrangements  at Aldershofc for   the  dispatch of every available company  . of    mounted    infantry,- especially  trained for service in South Africa.  General   Kitchener  has  not asked  for   reinforcements, but lie   needs  mounted troops  lightly  equipped,  and   will   havo  them.    While  tho  cavalry    servico     will    be    more  arduous than infantry work during  the remainder of the war, it will be  s-afei*   and   less   irksome.     Colonel  IMackiunon,  who   commanded   the  London volunteers, has contrasted  the good fortune of troops like  his  own with the bad luck of battalions  of infantry and  militia   guarding  the lines of communication.  He has asserted that troops which  wero constantly marching and  operating .against tho enemy remained in health and good fighting  form, whereas, battalions con-  demned~t'o iimction for weeks and  mouths in garrison duty were exposed to outbreaks of fever and  wero incapacitated for service. According to McKinribn's view, the  worst that can befall a battalion iii  service is a loug halt with the  necessity *���" of sitting idle in, one  locality. The men become enfeebled  and dispirited and when caught off  their guard are in poor form for  resisting a vigorous attack. This is  the probable explanation of tlie  feeble defence made by the Northumberland Fusiliers at Magalies-  burg, and the reverse sustained by  it at Stormberg a year ago under  Gataere, wheu its reputation as tlie  '���Fighting Fifth" ought to have developed more'spirited conduct.  missing to the number of 573 officers and men. Their capture by.  the Boers is a considerable exploit,  which will prolong hostilities, and  it is attended by circumstances implying that the British camp was  not on its guard .and, moreover,  that colonel Broadwood's cavalry  on the northern side of the mountain had not done effective scouting  work in preventing*the approach of  a formidable hostile force. Old  soldiers shrugged their shoulders  wheu they read the summary of  losses and commented upon the  large proportion of officers in the  list of killed as an indication that  tho rank and file had wavered and  that ifc was necessary for those in  command to rally them. Lord  Kitchener's bulletin also contains  closing references to tho famous  fox hunt.  General Dewet has been followed  by Knox's troops to the Haba N'uhu  on the Ladybrand line, and in spite  of being hard pressed, constantly  harried and temporarily held   up  will probably succeed in running  tho gauntlet and  escaping northwards.    Part of his force has gone  through   and  there is  little hope  among military men that he would  be captured without a long and relentless chas.e.    The failure of. this  pursuit and the surprise of a British  camp forty miles "west of Pretoria,  meeting   with  great  reverses  like  the defeats  of   a   year   ago,    are  merely   stern  reminders  that the  war has not ended and that hosfcil-  ties will  continue as  loug  as  the  Boer ammunition holds  out.     The  repeated incursions of   Boer commandos in certain districts convince  some experts  that there are  secret  hiding places of  war material to  which they return for fresh supplies  of   powder aud  sh'ot.     This  course was indicated in a rem-irk-  able pamphlet on the Boer plan of-  campaign   published a   year   ago  with <a   series  of   other   forecasts  whicli have been fulfilled in detail.  These hiding places of ammunition  will have the effect of   creating a  series of centers.for.Boer operations  where the British forces will  repeatedly be engaged.

Speaking of .closing events in  parliament, Mr. Ford says: The  closing formalities of the session .of  parliament were witnessed -today  mainly by new .members, who considered their-presence indispensable  to air adjournment with proper  dignity. Mr. Chamberlain, "as  usual, comes out with flying colors  as the strongest man in the cabinet, one' who knows what the country wauts and also how to protect  himself against swarms of slanders.   The-tactic3_of_the_Liberal_side_have_  been admirable, with the exception  of a single break on the part of the  Little Englander group. Loid  ltosebery appeared at the opening  aud the closing of the proceedings  and confirmed tho impression that  he will not require protracted woo-  iug for a resumption of the Liberal  leadership.  Tho chief of his acrid strictures  was on lord Hard wick, who has boon  forced.to confess that the embarrassments of a mortgaged estate  drove him into the stook exchango  to make a living, since a career on  exchange was** more congenital to  him-than au easy .hunt after an heiress, foreign or domestic. Lord Hard-  wick did not consider it necessary  for a minister to give up a sleeping  partnership iu a city firm or to  abandon tho right of returning  eome'day and doing business ou  the stock exchange. Lord Salisbury  and the duke of Devonshire supported him on the point of honor,  but lord Rosebery stoutly maintained that no minister of the  crown should be a member of a  stock exchange firm. This session  of pai'liament has - bee*u ��� chiefly remarkable for debates on personal  questions and for the chilling effect  of all official references to the campaign in South Africa.  South African Matters.  In tho South African campaign  the correspondent ' says: Lord  Kitchener has confirmed this morning the fears expressed by military  experts last night. The companies  of the Northumberland Fusiliers  and the Yeomanry which were surprised by. Delary ou high ground  above Nooitgedeaeht are reported  England and the Canal!  ln discussing the sentiment, in  England regarding the Davis  amendment to the canal treaty Mr.  Ford says: Clearly there is less  excitement in England over wrecking the canal treaty than there is  in America. The Spectator proposed at the close of the Spanish  war the abrogation by the British  government of the Clayton-Bulwer  treaty, and now, perhaps, is" the  only journal that considers the  Davis amendment a matter of little  importance, since, in the improbable  event of war between England and  America the battle would be fought  on the sea, as captain M.-ihau has  declared, and tho victor would  dictate the terms concerning the  canal. The Spectator is the only  exception to tho general  trend of  -opinion The���English-���press-^-is-  against the acceptance of the mutilated treaty and in favor of falling  back upon the British rights under  the older treaty, which are guaranteed by the American constitution. Its lauguage is more temperate aud the importance of the whole  controversy is minimized as one  tl-at concerns tlio honor of the  McKinley administration more  closely than the dignity of the  Salisbury government.  The state department initiated  the negotiations, and lord Salisbury, in a spirit of accommodation,  granted every favor which was  asked. Tlie senato has now  affronted president McKinley a  month after he was armed by tho  electorate with fresh reserve  powers, and this has been done  apparently because the continental  railways are not willing to have  the canal constructed. This is the  English view, whether they be  right or wrong, and there is regret  that the American government in  proposing the settlement of a vexatious controversy has not known  what it wanted. There is no resentment over evidences of anti-  English feeling, if there are any  such evidences, and no English  journal is haunted by the idea that  the two countries will ever go to  war over the canal. As the whole  subject is summed up by many  journals, the canal will not be built  and the continental railways will  continue to carry all freight.  La*** ANmixras, California, December 10.���A strong fight is to be  made in congiess for tho admission  of Arizona as a state during this  session of congress.  Particulars of the Tight.  London, December 16.���The following dispatch lias been received  by the war office from  lord Kitchener:   Pretoria, December 15. ���Five  officers and  .310 men at Magalies-  berg, prisoners, have been released.  The Boors surrounded and captured  120 of Brabant's horse in a defile in  the     Z'astrou .    district.     Colonel  Bloemfield, moving . on   Varyheid,  defeated the Boers .with heavy loss,  driving them from Scheeper's Nek  and capturing a quantity of arms.  The Scheeper's Nek movement occurred on December 13.   The Boers  who attacked Varyheid on  December 13 lost 100 killed and  wounded  before they retired.   The fighting  lasted all day, the enemy drawing  off at   7:30   p.m.   The British loss  was six killed, IS wounded aud 30  missing.    Our     casualties   include  two   officers,   who  died    of  their  wounds.  The Magaliesberg "affair is described as follows iu a dispatch to  the .Standard, from Reitfontein:,  The scene' of the engagement was a  horseshoe-shaped depression. The  Northumberlands occupied the center. General Clements' camp was  pitched 1000 yards lower down at  -the eastern-point of the horseshoe  and colonel Legge's camp was  about 300 yards away. General  Delarey's 1000 men, against whom  general Clement had fought repeated actions, were suddenly, unknown to general Clement, reinforced by .3000 men from Warm  Baths under the command of  Uoyerp. At daybreak colonel  Legge's picket descried w"liat seemed  a fresh force of British "troops  eighty yards distant! ' The strangers were' challenged, but replied  ���with'a'volley," revealing 400" Boers  in khaki.'    _  , The firing became heavy and the  noise aroused _ colonel**, Legge's  troops, who arrived "just in time to  save'the outposts from capture. A  furious engagement ensued, artillery was brought up and- it compelled the Boers to retire. Colonel  Legge, following up the withdrawal,  was shot dead by ��i bullet through  his head. General Clements and  his staff soon arrived. The' staff  suffered severely, but general Clements 'appeared to bear a charmed  life. While mounted men were  driving the enemy back along a  slope covered thickly with Boer-  dead a deafening rifle fire suddenly  broke out on the plateau' above,  the signallers heliographed that  the Northumberlands wero being attacked. General Clements,  convinced that they would easily  hold their, own, disposed the remainder of his force on the flanks  and rear of his two camps. At  4:30 a.m. a heliograph from the  western peak announced that the  -Boers���were -aboufc-to���overwhelm-  the Fusiliers.  General Clements was unable to  send adequate help, but dispatched  yeomanry to climb the precipitous  hillside and create a diversion.. Before the'yeomanry could come into  action, the. Boers had overlapped  the Northumberlands and were in  possession of the entire horseshoe,  firing-down on the yeomanry entangled in the bushes and boulders.  The Northumberlands made a magnificent defense - so long as their  ammunition lasted. According to  the Boer accounts many even when  their chance was hopeless died  fighting. General Clements, now  left with 700 men, made a superhuman effort against the bullets the  Boers were pouring ov,er the peaks  and managed to save his guns  and the camp equipments. He  retired in splendid order, and at 4  p. m. started to march to Reitfontein, fighting a rear guard action  all the way and arriving the next  day at 4 a. m."  Newfoundland Prosperous.  St. .Tohn's, Newfoundland, December 10.���Mr. Bond, the premier,  in his negotiations with Mr. Reid,  the contractor,' is endeavoring to  effect an amicable*. - arrangement  whereby Mr. Reid will surrender  his right to the reversion of the  ownership of tho railroads, being  compensated for the purchase and  accepting a fifty year operating  lease instead.

The curtain will rise ��at 8:15.  NELSON MINESJND MINING  Force Reduced.  The underground crew- at the  May and Jennie property on Forty -  nine creek was laid off. on Saturday  with the exception of the men who  are driving No. 2 crosscut, a tunnel  to tap the ore body at a depth of  500 feet. On the-upper levels the  development has reached the stage  where nothing remains to be - done  but to stope- out the- ore,* and- the  management prefer-to leave-the  mineral in* the stopes until ,themill  begins to assume shape.- The-man-  ager of the property has not made  an announcement as yet, but the  report is current than an order was  placed recently for a ten-stamp mill  and a sawmill. At the* same time  work was started on a millsite and  a site for the flume to carry water  from the upper reaches of the  creek to the mill. Both are cleared  ���and graded, and the understanding  is that the sawmill will be on the  ground within a few weeks, the  wagon road having been completed  to the mill site.  "Men who havo worked at the  May and Jennie recently state that  the work on the property has shown  it to be one of the biggest properties in the district. The main  ledge is very wide, the figures  quoted being, in. fact-, almost \in-  precedented for free milling properties in the Kootenays. Tlie -paystreak is estimated at four to five  feet in width and on either side- is  vein matter carrying- profitable  values. Of the entire vein G5 per  cent is said to be free milling and  the balance can be shipped in the  shape of concentrates as is done at  the Ymir mine.  The Nolson and Derby.  ^"Tlre-Rossland"Propi*ietary-Cora~  pany of Nelson, now being formed  to take over  tlie Nelson No. 2 and  Derby claims in Rossland from  the  parent   organization,   the   Societe  d'Etudies de British Columbia, will  not develop their properties in the  immediate future.   The owners  of  the Spitzie churn, just below the  Nelson   and   Derby,   are   working  steadily   and   their   property   improves   with  every shot.   As the  iveiri on tlie Spitzie crosses the Nelson and Derby,' tho owners of the  latter are content to   have   their  neighbors do the work for the present.   The lead is said to be over HO  feet in width and, whilo the grade  of the ore is low, as is characteristic of the Rossland camp, the size  of the ore body makes the property  as promising a prospect as any in  the camp.   An unusual feature of  the Nelson and Derby is that they  are in the middle of a residential  portion,of Rossland.   The surface  is cut up into 127  building lots  intersected by Columbia avenue and  other thoroughfares ou which water  mains and  sewers are laid.     This  gives the claims a value apart from  the mineral they may contain.  A Big Undertaking. ,i<  An application will be made at  tho next sessiou of tho provincial  legislature for a charter for a company tliat has been formed to undertake the running of a tunnel  from a point on Four-Mile creek,  not far from Silverton, to a point  on tlio sou tli fork of Carpenter  erode not far from Sandon. The  tunnel will be about five miles  long, aud will prospect oue of the  richest mineralized mountains iu  the Slocan.  Laid, to Best.  The remains of the late Frank  Plante were laid to rest on Saturday. The Nelson Miners' Union  sent a strong delegation, headed; by  secretary Wilkes, .to attend the  funeral, which proceeded from Vernon street to the church of Mary  Immaculate. Here -. a solemn  requiem mass with choral service  was celebrated, Rev. Father Ferland officiating. The interment  was made at the Union- cemetery.  The pallbearers were-members of  the union, Damien Gauthier, John  Foulds, John Ryan and John Gillies.  A Hearty Send-Off.  The friends of F. W. Peters, who  leaves today for the coast to assume  the position of general freight agent  on-the C. P. R., accorded him a jolly  entertainment at the Hotel Hume  on Saturday night. The evening  was pleasantly passed in song,  speech and story. A'feature of the.  entertainment was the presentation  to Mr. Peters of a purse containing  a substantial sum in gold, together  with a couple of sets of candelabra  and a handsome silver tureen. The  gifts were gracefully acknowledged  by Mr. Peters amid enthusiastic  cheers from the* gathering.  Another Cup Defender.  Boston, 'December 10.���After a  conference-with Boston designers,  Bostotrbnilders and a number of  representative-Boston yachtsmen,  Thomas-W. Lawson,.the well-known  financier and horse fancier of this  city- announced;-tonight that he  would personally stand-tha-expenses  of building-anoither- yacht to compete-for the-hdn-oi* of defending the  America's cup, against sir Thomas  Upton's Shamrock ~II. The^ new  yacht, according to Mr. Lawson,  will be designed by B. B. Crownin-  shield of this city, who has already  .had much success with smaller boats,  while- George' Lawley of Boston,  the builder of-;the - former cup -defenders,-Puritan and Mayflower-and  the.outfitter of still another, the  Volunteer, will- probably construct  the new boat.  ' It is expected that, captain Nat  Watson, one of the best skippers in  the east, will act as sailing-master,  and Mr. Lawson. also states that an  opportunity will be given-to a number of Corinthian yachtsmen .to  assist in working the boat as part  of her crew. All matters pertaining  to the construction of the new boat  will be open at all times to any one  interested. In order to build the  new boat Mr. Lawley will have to  sublet one of his government contracts, and in case he is unable to  do so the boat vwill be built by . the  Fall River Engine Company of  Quincy Point. <  PERSONAL.
