 S-g-S^a^-awwaw  STRIKE AT THE YELLOWSTONE  May Be Declared Off.  Another mine closed down yesterday  owing to a difference between the manager and the miners. This time it was  the Yellowstone, near Salmo. H. E. T.  Haul-aii)., engineer in charge, came into  town yesterday and gave a TkiiutN'K reporter an account of what had happened,  lie stated that with the exception of two  or three weeks tlie mine has been worked  with three eight-hour shifts right along.  The miners were being paid $3.50 in the  tunnels and $1 in the winze. The muckers were paid $3 for a ten-hour shift.  "The conditions in the Yellowstone  are such." Mr. Haultaiu went on," that  the muckers are seldom underground for  more than eight hours a day. Accordingly, on the night of the 11 th 1 told the  foreman that things would go on as before, and instructed him- not to ask the  muckers to work underground for more  than eight hours. The next day, Monday, the four muckers refused to work,and  I discharged them for not obeying orders.  This morning all the miners, sixteen all  told, came and asked me for their time.  I said to them 'you are going out because  you sympathize with four men who Ave re  fired because they Avouldn't do Avhat  they were told.'  '"If they had done that," the men replied, 'they would have been called scabs  from one end of the country to the other.  They are ;jnst as good men as Ave arc, and  Ave are going to stay by them.' The foreman also asked for his time."  "Mr Haul tain added that the men  Avere perfectly orderly and respectful in  tlieir demeanor, and thereAvas no display  of feeling Avhatever. They Avere evidently acting on behalf of a principle.  There are thirty men still at the mine,  employed in surface Avork.building Humes,  etc. The date of the resumption of underground Avork is uncertain.      .  Strike Not Authorized.  .Tames Wilks, one of the leading officials  of the Miners' Union, caine in yesterday  from Ymir. Speaking of the strike at the  YelloAvstone Mr. Wilks said that the men  had informed him that the manager,  after dismissing the four muckers avIio  had refused to' Avork as ordered, instructed the foreman to engage four  more, muckers to work on a straight  eight-hour shift. .Therefore he thought  the men were ill-advised to go down the  hill next morning. He also intimated  that the Miners' Union avou Id take the  .ijnisj.fc|ec' xxp. ;���  >*;*#*,���-  PUBLISHED  AT  NELSON,  BRITISH  COLUMBIA.  WEDNESDAY MORNING, JUNE H, 181)9.

Manila, June 13.���Fighting at Las  Pinas continued all flay. General Law ton  called out the whole force of .'5(100 men,  and at live o'clock he was only able to  push the insurgents back HOO yards to  the Zeapote river, where they wore entrenched. The insurgents resisted desperately and aggressively and attempted  to turn the left Hank oi the American  troops. The American loss is estimated  at sixty.  The only means of crossing the Zapote  Avas by a small bridge, Avhieh the Filipinos commanded with trenches spreading V-shaped, whence they could concentrate their fire on the bridge. They also  had the advantage of the trees and "jungle, so the Americans could hardly see  ahead. When'the battle Avas resumed at  one o'clock the reinforcements of the  Americans waded waist-deep in the mud  flats, and pouring steady volleys of musketry at the rebels, drove them beyond  the river.  Then the two armies lay facing each  other across the dee]) stream, the enemy  practically out of sight, Avhilethe men in  blue for three hours, Avithout a moment's  cessation, poured bullets at the enemy as  fast as they could load.  General LaAvton summoned the reserves  from Las Pi nas until only enough troops  Avere left in the toAvn to prevent the  Filipinos from attacking the Americans  in the rear, which Avas feared, as they  Avere creeping around the left through  the woods, ��� delivering ��� a flanking fire  which put a great strain upon the endurance of the Americans who were floundering in the mud across the river.  At four o'clock there was an hour's lull  in the fighting. It is impossible at present, to estimate the number of Filipinos  killed.    There were man v dead bodies in  TRYING TO MAKE ENDS MEET  The    chairman    of    each    corn-  was      also      notified      as     to  aithe fields, Avlnch.tlie Aniei,'icaus traversed*"  8 Sb^cause^tliey'cfeolnied.to, obey .orders:,  n^C'C^n"  V7  oS"^n     ��.     _ o   ,, .   ^       ..'..^"n- n      n_,_���.,.___*" "       7     D'  (^ ],,?2y :&"Wy:lE^|.e'i''uBYLa;stY0ance. ��'��^   '    ;  _   YL^N;iia^fj,.Jnh.e'Vl,3���^Alb^|t:l^^bo^k: issued,;  " ,-tffJ.lph'Jb. -fc^MfisTfiftsi n,ply, 20f "."Ma $ikki-;  " ^p!0;{l1yV.feV_9-fe pe'tfticlu .pf -j-he/ 'Sitjahd-hi'S :  '���"��to:1leV' ^%j-c"*4_^^ =K-*V-'e'-* ^lls  ���" jiuaiiGjiy^ t���0tli, ��� The-  " ,&eci_fetiU'-y* .of "the^otonieiS :f reefer ���jdinits,  _tlVat theses, a_:__ sttbSt.iut3aJ;gr0>inds_ for the  _;<mipf?iints ''iRft'UftcT-i-ed. in. jshp petition,  Wdi'ibli he l.roceedg to _|i:_eu._s  ii,t length, eiiipM _jzi.ij^ tii-ISe afl'ect-  itig' blip pei.'sonu_ o ?.%h_ts Pi the  Uitjanders, which" n,l#ihge the spirit,  lve.'in-5% x�� hot illp letter of tlie Loudon ;  cOirventlou..

The fact  that immediately after the receipt of a  cablegram from general Otis this morning tlie department ordered two battalions each of the Twenty-Fourth and  Twenty-Fifth, colored troops, iioav stationed at the presidio and at Fort Logan  to proceed at once to tlie Philippines, indicates that the situation is .regarded as  somewhat serious. It is generally understood in Avar department circles that the  Fifth infantry now in Cuba and possibly  the Fifteenth, also on that island, will be  forwarded to Manila immediately, and  the chances are that the Tenth Avill proceed to reinforce general Otis;  Tired of the English Duke.

The action wus brought to restrain the defendants from taking up more than a certain amount of land for the right-of-way  on Avhieh their-tramway is constructed.

A meeting of the police commissioners  was held yesterday afternoon at Avhieh  mayor Neelands and commissioner Hillyer  were present. The lirst business transacted Avas the appointment of" Charles  French as policeman. The appointment  is only for one month but should French  give satisfaction he Avill probably be permanently appointed.  The question of the powder magazines  on Magazine point, across from the city,  was discussed and the commissioners decided to instruct the police officers to  enforce compliance Avith the provincial  statute which prohibits the maintenance  of a magazine Avithin tAvo miles of the  city. The poAvder companies maintaining  magazines on the point Avere indicted by  the last grand .iury but as aii adjournment was granted until the next assize  the commissioners feared thatthe menace  might be permitted to continue for some  time and they determined to take action  themselves. As there is a heavy penalty  for the infraction of the statute regarding powder magazines the commissioners  think that by shoAving an intention of  securing its enforcement they will force  tlie powder-.companies to store their  powder at a greater distance from tlie  city.,-' '������'������; , - yy ,..-��� - ������  '42Mih 4��i#i^io1.p_;_"*a^  ^W^^^^^^^^M^^^&''  'hi?

There is more trouble between the  Crow's Nest Pass road and the Kootenay  Valleys railway, formerly known as the  Nelson-Bedlington, and construction on  one end of the latter line has consequently been suspended. On Saturday  last a notice Avas put up at the point  Avhere the Crow's Nest Pass track joins  the trestle at Sirdar aiid Avhere the  Kootenay 'Valleys road would either have  crossed or joined the former line, forbidding anyone to trespass on the  right-of-way.  This has had the effect of stopping  the proposed connection between the two  lines at-that point. G. Carlson has the  contract for the construction of the line  from Kuskonook to the point mentioned,  and he has the road graded to within 100  feet ofthe Crow's Nest Pass right-of-Avay,  but there ho is blocked and the line can  go no further.  Maynard Cowan has the contract for  constructing'three miles of line up to  where the Kootenay Valleys road joins  the Crow's Nest Pass right-of-way on the  south; and the grading up to that point  is practically completed. No one JciioaVs  what is to be done Avith the last mile of  CoAvau's contract, which, if completed.  Avould parallel the Crow's Nest Pass line  for that distance. Work on this mile of  track has not been commenced yet. If (  the Avork is not interrupted another six  Aveeks 'would see the road ready for track  laying, but differences between the rival  companies may delay "matters indefinitely.

Traced back for two-thirds of a cen  tury,. .the origiiial exciting cause of the  present, tliniculty in -the Transvaal was  the passing of the act of parliament of  1S33 which put tin,end to negro slavery���  so strange and unforeseen are the results  of human actions. It is no neAV thing  that Transvaal Boeus and' British should  be at odds; before the gold discoveries  brought in.the Uitlanders along record  of disagreements had been piled up, and  the ancient rock upon AvJiich good feeling  between the men of the South African  republic,and.tho British authorities made  shipwreck was the native question.  Permanent officialdom had a great deal  to do with the trouble which precipitated  the Great Trek. . The Boers of Cape'C&l-  ��� ony were slaveholders, but had not qui_e  come.' to their.���bea_irigs with,,.regard to  the negro "problem. Early iu tlie History,  of the colony the Dutch government,.had.  effusively approved of the actual inter-  Y marriage of the white-and black races.  That, day had gone, and the farmers -had.  little respect for negro rights, but _he_r  Avere in many cases awake to the economic CA'ils of slavery and were uot indisposed to accept a scheme of. gradual en-  franchisement.

In   addition   they  made much  use of a system of forced  labor, ordering  native villages to furnish   it certain number of hands toAVork their fields.    On the  border tliere was constant raiding.    Any  attempt to educate, elevate or christianize the  natives they   resented   furiously,  and   there   avjis   ji standing  quarrel  betAA'een   them tind  the missionaries.    Livingstone,   the greatest  ofthe  missionaries, detested them, and '/with good reason,  for tliey  interfered constantly, with his  efforts to-improve the natives, iind in the  end raided his station, at Kolbbehg, killing or   dispersing his .flock and   utterly  sticking and destroying  his   house.    He  avjis  absent at the time of the raid, iind  there is a good reason to belieAre that the  raiders Avere ordered  to kill  him.    Four  other missionary stations AA'ere clestroyed  in like manner.    It is interesting to note  tluit Paul  Kruger rode in this cruel and  unprovoked .mid.    Forced domestic serA'ice,   by Avhatever name . it is called, the  Boers have  .always insisted upou, and ji  considerable;, body    of   evidence   exists  AA'hich goes  to prove, that they actiuilly  engaged more or less in a traffic in.slaves.'  It Avas OA'er this question tliat tilmost all  their   troubles   Avith   Great Britain   occurred, for the paramount power, urged  by public opinion at home and influenced  not ji little by the .missionttries, was constantly trying to make the lot of the natives'lighter.  '���'"- This   constant   raiding   and   counter-  raiding kept South Africa unquiet.    The  British     government    avjis     constantly  drawn into difficulties with the Boers by  . their bickerings  Avith tribes Avith Avhoni  ,the.,.British colonies   were  dw*elliug   iii  . comparative peace.    On the spot the diffi!-  culties were accentuated  by the  differences of temperament betAveen the British 'soldier .or .official and the rough pioneer.
