 DAILY EDITION   BY MAIL  FIVE DOLLARS A YEAR  yi  '- '<!  WEEKLY EDITION  BY MAIL  TWO DOLLARS A YEAR  NINTH YEAR.  NELSON:  SATURDAY MOANING DECEMBER 22 1900  PRICE FIVE CENTS  f  fi  I  HAD AN INTERVIEW WITH KRUGER  W. T. Stead Visits  the  Old  Man  at  The  Hague  and  Listens to  His  Tale  of Woe.  DISPATCH OF TROOPS TO SOUTH AFRICA-BOER ACTIVITY  London, December 21.���-William  T. Stead lias just returned from The  Hague, where  he  has  had  a  loug  conference   with   Mr.  Krngor and  lias ascertained afc first hand  the  views of Mr. Kruger and his  coun-  celors as  to  the  present situation  and future prospects.     Mr.  Stead  has written the Associated Press in  part as follows:  "First of all, nothing is decided about his  (Kruger's)  visit to America at present.   President Kruger has not .abandoned all  hope of securing the support of the  governments of the civilized  world  in.his demand for arbitration.   Until the last government refuses absolutely to say a word  in  support  of the principles which they solemnly laid down at The Hague  conference, Mr. Kruger will  not  partake  in    popular " demonstrations.     Mr.  Kruger is emphatic in  disclaiming  auy desire to involve other nations  in   war   on   behalf   of   the Boers.  What he asks is  that  the  governments which at The Hague declared  a determination to use their efforts  to secure an amicable settlement of  disputes   by   means  of   mediation  and    arbitration    should   make a  uuited effort to bring  the -verdict  of   the   world   to   bear ou   Great  Britain.  ,_i.T cannot put their ' position  better than in the words of One of  Mr. Kruger's counselors: England  is our accuser. England is the sole  witness against us. England is the  judge, Eugland  is the  executioner  - and.England hopes to profit byour  ��� death. AVe appealed for arbitration before the war. We are fighting for arbitration today. We have  'theright to expect the sympathy  of tho civilized world.' .He found  Mr. Ki'ii&er hale. His bearing is  not so good as it was. His mind  moves somewhat more slowly, but  every now and then the old fire  Hashes from his eyes and you hear  the deep voice which has so often  rallied the burghers in battle.  Queen Wilhehniua is kindness  itself. She has displayed pluck, in  lemarkable contrast to the timidity  of   many  of  her  official  advisers.  - The old man's spirit is unshaken by  his reverses. He disclaimed any  desire to humiliate England and  paid tho Boers only wanted their  rights.  " It may interest Americans to  know that Mr. Kruger's appeal to  the���eivilized"_world���would-be re~  ceived everywhere with unanimous  enthusiasm wore it not for the deep-  rooted distrust and jealousy of  tlie  .dynasties of Hapsburg and Hohen-  zollern against the president of a  republic. If ho were a kiug the  courts would have.been open everywhere. This feeling, it is well to  note, is not shared by Russia. The  Boers   will not listen to any pro-  * jjosals. for a com promise.   Failing  "independence or arbitration they  will prefer to die fighting."  Troops for South Africa.  London, December 21.���The war  " office makes tho following announcement last evening : In view of the  geueral position in South Africa the  following reinforcements of  mounted troops have been arranged:  Eight hundred will start next week.  The cavalry regiments have been  ordered to leave as soon as the  transports are ready. The colonial  police will he increased^ to 10,000.  Detachments will leave as fast as  they are formed. Further drafts  of cavalry will be despatched at  once. Australia and New Zealand  have been invited to send further  contingents. A dispatch from  Beuar, Capd Colony, says that the  yeomanry have driven the Boers  out of Houtkranl, the enemy retiring westward.  An Explanation.  London, December 22.���As the  outcome of statements made during  tlie recent session of parliament and  sLuce reiterated to the effect that  some of the colonial troops had refused to fight, the war office last  evening issued the following explain   ;on  from   lord Kitchener:   "A  number of men belonging to two of  the South African corps refused to  march on occasion owing to some  mistake to earny out their discharge at the expiration of 'their  terra of service. Lord Roberts, on  the ground that they had a grievance, overlooked the matter, simply  reprimanding them."  The Boer Activity.  Cape Town, December 21.���General Brabant, commander of the  newly raised colonial division, has  been ordered to the front and will  start tomorrow. At Thorndale  general French has routed 2500  Boers with four guns and a pompom.  London, December 21.���From  Cape Town tho Mail has received  the following: The second invading  force was designed to occupy Brits-  town, but being checked by the De  Aar troops, it has disappeared into  the Cedarsberg mountains. An  enormous coticentiation of troops  is being made up on the veldt country occupied by the invaders, but  it is not likely that the Boers, will  oiler battle in Large numbers.  There is a renewed demand for the  wholesale proclamation of martial  law.  Gape Colony in a Ferment.  Cape Town, December 21.���General Baden-Powell'will start for the  Transvaal tomorrow.  The Boers derailed a train today,  killing an inspector.and others.  London, December 22. ��� "We  understand that private reliable  advices have been received in  London," says the Daily Mail, "to  WcTeffect that virtually all the,districts of Cape Colony in the vicinity  of the Orange river arejn more or  less open revolt and there is likely  to be sharp fighting on a rather  large scale before the invasion is  crushed."  An Increase in Fay.  London, December 22.���The secretary of state for war, William St.  Johu Broderick, announces that in  view of the prolongation of  tho war in South Africa, members of the imperial yeomanry  will be " paid five shillings  instead of one shilling and two  pence per day. Militia men are  promised priority of return over  regulars.  ___,   A Mining Man's Experience.  A mining man who gained experience on the Comstock, fame in  th"e"Cceur���d'Alenes-and-fortune"in"  East Kootenay, tells a pretty good  story on himself. Since he gained  fortune, time at times hangs heavily on his hands, so he decided that  he would become a devotee of outdoor sports. He bought himself an  outfit of fishing tackle, a sporting  rifle and a dog. He taught the dog  to retrieve by throwing sticks into  a lake near where he lives. The  dog soon became an expert retriever. The mining man first  tried fishing, but had so little success on every expedition that he  had recourse to giant. He' procured a stick, attached a fuso and  threw it into tho lake. His retriever thought the time had arrived for his share of the work and  jumped in after it. The mining  man called on the dog to come  back, but the call was not heeded.  The fuse was caught, and the dog  started for the shore and the mining man started to get a safe distance from the dog. He succeeded  just as the stick of dynamite exploded. The remains of the poor  dog could not be found, and the  mining "man has ceased to be an  outdoor sport.  Miners Express Regret.  At the last meeting of the Nelson Miners' Union the following  resolution - of condolence was  adopted :  Whereas: It has pleased divine  providence to remove from our  midst brother Frank Plant, who  died in this city on December 14th.  And,  Whereas: In the death of  brother Plant this union sustains  the loss of a brother who was ever  true to his obligation and to the  duties and responsibilities expressed  aud implied therein.  Therefore be it resolved: That  we, the members of Nelson Miners'  Union, No. 90, W. F. M., hereby extend our heartfelt sympathy to the  bereaved relatives of our deceased  brother in this their hour of affliction. That the charter of this  union be draped for thirty days  aud that copies of those resolutions  be sent to the relatives of deceased  and published in the press.  The Sale Continues.

The Wrong George,  Wateutown, New York, December 21.���A peculiar pension case  has been brought to the attention  of the pension department by  attorney _ E. N. Fiton of this city.  During the war of the rebellion  George Carpenter, son of a physician  at Messina, New York, became  enamoured of a young woman, but  his parents opposed their marriage.  He went to sea and' was absent  several years. Upon his return he  married the woman.. He claimed  to his wife that he had been in the  army, but did not draw a pension.  He drifted around the country,  finally dying in a smallpox hospital  in St. Louis in 1872. Mrs. Carpenter  applied for a pension. She was  granted one, it being believed that  her husband was George Carpenter,  who served in a Vermont regiment.  It has now been discovered that  the George Carpenter whose pension  Mrs. Carpenter drew for several  years served in company I of tlie  14th Maine Infantry. The George  W. Carpenter of the Vermont regiment has now* made application for  a pension himself.  IN THE VARIOUS jCHURCHES OF  NELSON.

Yesterday was a busy day in tlie  local chambers sittings *t the court  house before, his honor judge Forin,  several matters of interest being  disposed of.  On behalf of Mrs. Luella Roberts,  Taylor & Hannington-moved for  judgment with reference to the  non-suit reserved by the judge at  the request of defendants in Robert's vs. Stewart. ��� J. II.-Bowes for.-  Stewart contended that the permission given to use the land on whieh  the Stewart camp was located was  simply a license and as such did not  carry any implied agreement to  pay a reasonable _ remuneration.  The non-suit was dismissed and  judgment entered for plaintiff for  .$100 and costs, tho amount of the  verdict given by the jury in the  case.  In LaBIanc vs. Lambert, which  involves tho title to the valuable  mineral claims on the south fork  of Kaslo creek, R. W. Hannington  moved for an order to serve the defendant in London, England, outside of the jurisdiction of this court.  Tho order was madei '  An interesting point came up in  connection with the action of  Mackenzie vs. Lode Star Mining  Company.       W.     A.    Macdonald  moved~tcThave his client, a wage-  earner, placed on an equality with  execution creditors' who wero .also  wage-earners, R. M. Macdonald  contra. The judge held that all  wage-earners were entitled to share  equally in the proceeds of the  amount realized by tho sheriff.  This, establishes the point that the  factof obtaining 'an execution does  not strengthen the position of one  wage-earner creditor at tlie expense  of another.  In Heddlo vs. Stamford, P. E.  Wilson, for defendant, applied, for  an order to sot aside thy judgment  and execution in the case aud for  leave to defend. The order was  made, R. M. Macdonald eo.ntra. The  effect of this will be to hidofinitely  postpone the sale of Venus stock  under seizure by the sheriff.  Work on the Alice.  T. G. Procter returned yesterday  from Creston, where he ie operating  the Alice mine. Twelve men are  employed underground and tlie  property is improving constantly.  A 508-foot crosscut is being driven  to tap the vein at a . further depth  of 250 feet, which will materially  increase the extent of the ore body  in sight. About a carload of clean,  high-grade shipping ore, estimated  to run 70 per cent in lead, is sacked  awaiting shipment, and tho dump  contains upwards of 500 tons of excellent concentrating ore. Shipments will be made as soon as tho  wagon road is completed. Good  progress is being made on the" road  under the direction of W. A. McLean, superintendent of roads and  bridges. About three-quarters of a  mile has been completed and the  work is going ahead rapidly.  Washington, December 21.���Senator Lodge, in charge of tho Ilay-  Pauncefote   treaty in the  senate,  made a statement which in part is  as follows:   "First,   say that the  amendments were not dictated by  hostility toward England,-still less  were they in any degree a reflection upon  the secretary of state,  whose   patriotism, purity   of  purpose, knowledge, accomplishments  and high  achievements  in  dealing  with our foreign relations, especially in China, are fully and entirely  recognized by men   of all parties  and of all shades of opinion  in  the  senate.   The    amendments     were  made by tho senate solely because,  in its opinion, they were necessary  for   the   interests   of   the   United  States  for   the   avoidance  of any  question as  to   the   control of the  canal aud consequently for the sake  of peaceful  and  harmonious  relations with the rest of the world on  that subject in  the future.     The  vote by which they  were  adopted  shows this.    The second, or Davis-  amendment, passed by a vote of 05  to 17 aud the other two were adopted without division.  , "The first amendment is simply a  declaration that the Clayton-Bulwer  treaty ceases to exist and is superseded by the Hay-Pauncefote treaty.  The object of the latter was to remove the former as an' obstacle to  the construction of the isthmian  canal. Some good judges thought  that the Hay-Pauncefote treaty did  this completely as it stood. Others  believed that certain portions, of'  the Clayton-Bulwer treaty still re-'  mained in force. Tho American  people . desired to get rid of the  Clayton-Bulwer treaty finally and  beyond question. Under .article 2  of the Hay-Pauncefoto treaty, as it  stood, we were clearly bound if engaged in war to permit a hostile  fleet, if it succeeded in getting inside the three mile zone, to pass unmolested through the canal. This  may or may not be a practical  question and it is of no consequence  whether it is or not. It Waas a  solemn promise to permit a hostile  fleet to seize the canal.  "That promise we either intended  to keep or else to make it known  that under stress of power wo  should break it. if we meant to  keep it, then it w.as n promise no  nation ought to make, if we knew  that we should not keep it iu time  of war, then it was only honest and  fair to relieve ourselves of the obligation in tho treaty itself. This  was tho purpose of the second or  Davis amendment, which entirely  disposes of any such promise and  which follows exactly in principle  and almost exactly in words article  10 of the Suez convention, which  reserved similar rights to Turkey,  whose interest in tlie Suez canal is  trivial compared to ours in that  proposed in Nicaragua.  "The third amendment strikes  article 3, by which we engaged to  invite other nations to adhere to  the treaty and thereby become  parties to it. Had there been no  Clayton-Bulwer treaty we would  havo negotiated with no one except  Costa Rica and Nicaragua as to  building the canal- AVith England,  .owing to the Clayton-Bulwer treaty,  wewere obliged to treat, but as we  expect Europe to keep out of this  hemisphere it seemed to the senate  unwise, however excellent and liberal the intention, to invite European nations to share in an American treaty and thus give them the  rights to meddle iu American affairs  at any point. Such are. the purposes of the three amend ment?,  which in no way derogate from the  intention of the United States that  this canal shall be a neutral highway for tho world's commerce."  "Do you think England will accept or reject these senate amendments," the senator was asked.  "That is a question i havo been  asked many times and upon which  I don't think it would be right or  proper for me to express an  opinion," was the reply. "But 1  think 1 can with propriety say a  word as to our view of the amend-  Ifc is well recognized in iii-i '"^fl  nail   invar  #-Tin *-.

We agree that all vessels of commerce and of war shall pass through  the canal on the same terms as our  own, and in war between other  powers we agree to preserve the  neutrality of the canal toward all  belligerents^ In deference to-fclie"  wishos of Nicaragua and Costa Rica  in regard to this treaty and not to  auy we may hereafter make with  them we.--relinquish.;"*the--right to  make permanent fortifications, and  although there is no need of such  fortifications the right to erect  them is an important right and its  relinquishment goes to the last  verge of concessiou.  'The vast expense of the canal i-j  ours, the maintenance and defence  of it is ours and the American people will never permit a canal there  which thoy do not control. Because the defence of the United  States overrides every other consideration, ln building and maintaining the canal we assume .a  great burden, by which the whole  world will benefit, and if we bear  the burden alone tho power and  the control must be ours also.  "We desire to dispose of the Bul-  wer-Clayton treaty in the most  friendly way possible. We aio  most averse to any other disposition of it. England does not intend to go to war with us to prevent our building the canal and if  it is physically possible to build it  we mean in any event to do so.  Under these circumstances we are  very clear that it is as much for  England's interest as ours to accept  the new propositions in the friendly spirit in which they are offered  and thus end a controversy over an  outworn treaty, whieh is only a  stumbling block to  both nations."

The  newspaper organ of tlie knockers  and backbiters and deadbeats in  Nelson is in sore - financial distress,  and its editors would have it appear  that the City-of Nelson is in alike  condition. The City of Nelson is  airriglit7because~ho one connected"  in auy way with the Nelson Evening Miner ' is in official position in  the city or ever likely to be..  Thr British Columbia Board of  Trade of Victoria has issued its annual report for 1000. Au attempt  is made to cover the whole province; but the task has proved too  big. The report says that the  smelters at Grand Forks-rand-Greenwood would soon be blown in. The  smelter at Grand Forks has not  only been blown in, but has been  shipping matte for weeks. Victoria  is a progressive town in some respects, but it should change the  name of its board of trade. The  name is too comprehensive.  Can the City of Nelson offer any  inducements itothe promoters of in  dust-rial enterprise."* to locate with  iu the city limits?   A low  rate  of  taxation can-be held out a3  au  inducement; low water rates can  be  promised,--and .-low   electric  light  rates given; but nothing else except  fie-bare statement that Nelson  is  the most centrally located town in  southeastern     British     Columbia.  Were the city in a position to offer  cheap power���and power is a factor  iu   all    industries��� an    additional  -clerk would be required in the city  offices   to   answer    inquiries   that  would be nixde by people wantii _*  to locate here.   There is but one  way that cheap power can be secured for the city, '.and that is from  water tha'it is now flowing in Kootenay river. No one corporation is  likely to secure a monopoly, of the  water in that river; but one corporation can secure all the land along  that river that would be suitable  for sites for power stations, and  that is just what the West Kootenay Power & Light Company is trying to do. For daring to even suggest that the City of Nelson should  hi placed iu as favorable a position  to secure water rights and powerhouse sites as the West Kootenay  Power & Light Company, the mayor  of Nelson is called - a fraud aud a  swindler by a newspaper that is  kept alive by the business men of  Nelson.  Ix regard to the fairness of the  2 per cent tax on the output of  metal mines, the following figures  are given as to'the value of Slocan  ore by Howard West of New Denver.    Mr. West says  the average  assay value of Slocan  ore is  105  ounces of silver and 47 per cent  lead per ton.    Smelters pay for 95  per cent of the silver values and 00  per cent of the lead values��� in the  ore.   This  would make the silver  worth, at 02 cents an ounce, $00.00,  and the load, at $'1.25 a hundred,  $35.05;   or a  total value of $90.S5  per ton.   The freight   arid  treatment charge is $20 a ton, the duty  on lead is $1*1.10, and the cost of  getting the oro from the dump to  rail or steamer $3.50 a ton; or a  total charge of $37.00 to be deducted  from  the value  of the ore before  the 2 per cent can be levied.   This  deduction   makes   the   ore   worth  $50.25 for taxation.    The  tax  is 2  per  cent, or  $1.18-V per  ton.    The  Slocan  mine owner has  $58.06i a  ton  left after paying all charges-  except mining.with which  to pay,  dividends.       Mr.   West  estimates  that one-third of the value of the  ore mined in  the  Slocan has  been  disbursed   in   dividends.      Taking  these figures  as  correct, the average man cannot see where the 2 per  cent tax works a great hardship ou  the mine owner.  Pride is  the fog that surrounds  insignificance.  Laurier Should Qo.  Toronto Telegram.  Australia is already a good cns-  1 o ner to Canada, and for trade reasons alone the Dominion under the  North Star should' be adequately  represented at the birth of the commonwealth under the .Southern  Cross. There are other and higher  reasons whicli should urge Canada  to figure as a party to one climax  in the development of the world-  wide"drama of imperial unity.  There is only one man who is in a  position to speak to the Australian  nation on behalf of the Canadian  nation. Wilfrid Laurier should go,  aud he should be attended by an  escort worthy of his position and  worthy of the country. Canada is  no poor relation, and the country is  well able to pay the expense of  ���Wilfrid Laurier'.** participation in  the family festival in Australia.  The strength of Wilfrid Laurier is  mainly oratorical, and the demands  of his mission would be mainly oratorical. He is a great and splendid  figure on the platform, and in Australia he could not fail to do.credit  to Canada and swell the echo of  this country's fame.  At the Silverton Boy*  The tunnel on the Silverton Boy  is now iu 250 feet .and excellent  headway is being made. Good ore  has been encountered in the tunnel  but'the main ore body has not been  located. The management have always estimated that from 300 to  350 feet of work will be required  to take their tunnel through the  broken formation under the iron  capping of the hill and into the  permanent formation where their  vein issituated.  T. THE ELECTORS Of KELSON:  At, the request of a number ot elector!*, I have  decided to oll'a-r myf c'f as a*eaiMidato for -mayor  at tho coming civic elections. I have served as  alderman two years of the four during  which the city* has ljeen conducting its own affairs, and my record while in the council en the  questions that arc now the most important issues  before the people of tha city is such as will bear  inspection.  lbelieve that the city has raluablo assets in the  wator and electric light systems, .and*while in  the council I did everything possible to safeguard  these assets-ami if elected- mayor no'act or voic  of mino wl'l be in favor of allowing nny outside"  corporate interest to become a competitor with  I h9 city in the business of electric lighting, a  business in which the cily has already invested  S70.00*>'. .  While in the council in 18P7,1 voted in favor of  incorporating a fair wage clause in all con'racts,  and that principle was carriod out in both letter  and spirit. I see no reason to change my views  on that question now. And I believe, further,  that with competent foremen and superintendence that the city can get as good value for the'  money spent by having the grcatbullt of its work  done by day's labor as by the contract system,  and no good reason can bo advanced Nwhy the  city should not pay lhe -same rate of wages and  work men tho tamo number of hours as prevails  in private enterprises-.  lam in favorof giving (hobusincs* and property interests every safeguard possible, and lo  that end I-believe tho lire department should be  made as efficient as possible, consistent wi'h the  revenues of the cily.

Nolson,"a western city, i-s as orderly and law  abiding as eastern cities. This is because the  people of Nelson are tolciant.

Greenwood, December 21.���|Special to Tlie Tribune].��� Tlie holiday  soiison   seems   to   luivo   been   lost  sight of by at least tlie majority of  the sterner  sex, who find little  to  talk of other than municipal polities and the opening of the  second  v-vudeville concert hall. , These two  subjects have since tlie first of the  week been the principal thenies of  discussion on street -corners and in  tho   downtown   resorts.       In   the  mayoralty contest Duncan Ross is  moving heaven and earth to get the  scant  majority  of  votes that will  place  him  in  the executive chair,  while tlie genial doctor, externally  at least, pursues the even  tenor of  his way in the practice of  his  profession, leaving  the  hard  work of.  securing  these same votes to .the  able gentlemen  who  were  responsible   for   bringing  him   out.    Dr.  Jakes, however, denies the soft impeachment that he is in any clique,  and in an open letter to  the  press  states that his position and excuse  for being in the contest lies  not in  tlie fact that mayor Hardy or his  friends   wished   him   to   take, an  active part, but merely out of. his  desire   to see  the-hatchet buried  and  all factionalism in  municipal  affairs consigned to an  everlasting  oblivion.    lie   gracefully   concedes  that  his  opponent  is  as  able and  conscientious a man  as could   be  found in the city to  discharge the  diities of mayGi*.  ."However, the doctor has not  issued any preelection address aud  what his policy- on civic affairs will  be is unknown except to a few of  his intimate supporters. Mr. Ross  has taken the electors into his confidence and is making a strong bid  for the support of the workers, believing that the strength of every  city, particularly such a, ono as  Greenwood, situated in the very  heart of .a large mining district,  lies in its workingmen and consequently to a great extent its future  depends upon them, therefore he is  iu favor of recognizing their claims  .to proper protection. He believes  that eight hours should constitute  a day's work and that this principle  should be adopted by tho municipality, and, as far as possible  day labor should be given preference  to contract, und in the event  of work being let by contract that  the contractors should be forced to  . pay current wages. He also goes  on record as being strongly opposed  to tho Chinese .and that all powers  granted to the corporation under  Is now prepared to issue Drafts and  Letters of Credit on Skaguay, U.

Free Variety Shows.  Next to politics ihterestis centered  in the variety show business.    Here  too a merry war, but with  more  serious   financial  results, is being  waged, and it came about this way:  A few weeks back Ola Lofstad,. the  proprietor of the Hotel Ladysmith,  took it into his head that business  down in his end of tlie city was a,  little slack and that with a proper  kind of entertainment to  all 'and  sundry who might be induced to  patronize him, it would pick up. So  with little more ado he takes a trip  to Spokane, returning shortly with  all the necessary human appliances  that   are   to be found   in a well  -regulated music hall.     His venture  succeeded, and money came pouring  into his coffers, at least so  thought  Mr. Branson, who  runs  the  Hotel  National, and he accordingly goes  out to the City of the Falls.     Immediately   after   his   return    the  announcement      is     made  - that  a    second     concert    hall     would  be   opened,   and   so the public is  privileged nightly  to  witness  two  really   first-rate    vaudeville    performances,  each trying to out-do  the   other,  hind  each  running   its  show free.    Now gossip hath it that  yet  a third  hotel  will'go into the  vaudeville business aud if. it keeps  up     Copper     avenue,    tho   ��� main  thoroughfare, will, during the winter months, assume once more that  lively aspect that was characteristic  a year since.    Greenwood has  certainly     in   the     interim   suffered  sufficiently     from      a      class     of  pessimistic individuals  who   have  been    detrimental   evidently,    in  one sense, to the natural advancement of,the city as a mining centre  to whicli all  the  miners  and  employees  are  attracted for   amusement.    That  the  two  resorts   are  appreciated is amply .demonstrated  by tho crowded houses  which  are  in evidence nightly.
