 TENSION IN _JHE_ TRANSVAAL  Continues Unrelieved.  London,  September   1.���This  evening  the secretary  of  state   for the  colonies,  Mr. Joseph Chamberlain, issued the  text  of the despatches of August 19th and 21st,  cand of the reply of the Imperial   government on August 2(>th.    The publication is  accompanied by a note  emphasizing the  advisability of making the corrected versions known, owing to the  fact  that an  incorrect version' has  been   published in  Pretoria.     The   Transvaal   despatch    of  August 10th  contains  the  proposals   regarding the  franchise which go upon the  assumption that 'Great Britain will agree  that the present   intervention   does   not  constitute a precedent and will allow tho  suzerainty    question    to    drop    tacitly.  The       despatch        of       August     21st  makes the proposed concessions expressly  conditional   upon   Great   Britain   uiider-  . taking not to intei'fere'with future affairs  of the Transvaal nor insist   upon a  further  assertion   of   the  existence  of   tlie  suzerainty and   to agree to arbitration.  The reply  of  the   imperial   government  dated  August  28th declares that Great  Britain considers that the proposals pub  forward as alternative to  those  of July  21st, assume the adoption in principle of  a franchise which will not be hampered  by   conditions  impairing   its   usefulness  and wliich will insure immediate representation.    With.respect to intervention,  the imperial note says that the government   cannot   deliver  themselves   from  their rights under the  conventions, nor  deliver themselves from   the  obligations  of a civilized power  to  protect  its subjects abroad from injustice.  Tho note concludes by reminding the  Transvaal that'other matters exist which  the granting of a political franchise will  not settle and which are the proper subjects for arbitration. These, the note declares, it will be necessary to settle concurrently with the questions already under discussion, and they will form, with  the question .of arbitration, proper subjects for the proposed Capetown conference. '  The Pretoria vei'sion of the imperial  reply was that .'Mr. Chamberlain was unable to consider the Transvaal proposals  as to an alternative joint commission of  inquiry.  London, September 1.���The situation  in South Africa has become rather coni-  ''plicated. The strong feeling of the Dutch  element in Cape Colony evidently influences the secretary of state for tlie colonies, Mr.  Chamberlain,  to do everything  ^  m,  SATURDAY MORNING   SEPTEMBER 2,  181)9.

City engineer McCulloch returned on  Thursday evening from an inspection of  tho electric light flume which is being  completed by MeBeath <fc Peters. The  original contract is completed with the  exception of putting the cover upon the  flume. While the engineer .was upon  the ground he turned the entire flow of  the creek into the flume and decided that  it would be necessary to build another  hundred feet of flume to prevent' any  difficulty with the water on the Nelson  & Fort Shcppard railway track. This  extra piece of flume, together with the  covering of the whole, should be com;  pleted in about four days. The engineer  claims the contractors have done a first-  class job, and that while no measurements were taken last winter during extreme low water, Summit creek appears  to flow as much water as Cottonwood -  Smith creek. By connecting the next  large creek to the south the city will  have not less than one thousand miners'  inches of water,-wliich should be ample  for both household and power purposes  for a town of ten thousand population.  ������.,- -.Ontario; Pastures Are Drying.

Herr Fischer, the special envoy of the  Orange l^ree State, has arrived here, from  Bloeiufoutein, and is consulting with the  government ou the situation. Last  night's session of the volksraad was  short, as the reply to Great Britain was  not ready.:  London, September 2.���The Pretoria  correspondent of the Morning Post says :  President Kruger told a prominent Boer  yesterday (Wednesday) that war was  practically certain. Every Boer is now  armed with a mauser and has a hundred  rounds for practice. "I am convinced  that the reports of the Boers not being  prepared are only a pretense and they  will strike a blow when it is least expected." - '   .  Provisional Government Formed.

The  second resolution was an instruction' to  the members of the police force to hustle  all the idle men Out of the city* The'  third- resolution explains itself. It was  made by alderinan Hillyer, seconded by  commissioner Crease, and read: "Tliat  the chairman be instructed to obtain it  once it good .aiid .efficient patrolman.'' As  a means of securing kno^vledge of the  idle men the commissioners also passed a  resolution -i-equirhig the keepers of hotels  and saloons to report' daily to tlie police  all idle persons, and that if such is not  dope the attention of the license eomiiiis-  sionei'S will be drawn to such default..  yachtsmen Squabble Over the Clip.  Toronto, September I.���The Canada  cup is still in Toronto, although it was  presented to the Chicago Yacht Club on  Saturday last. There is a little trouble  over the engraving on the cup, and the  difficulty is between the Rochester club  and the Chicago club. The former waut  the inscription to read : " The Genesee of  Rochester," while the latter insist on the  wording : " Genesee of the Chicago Yacht  Club." It is expected the difficulty Avill  be adjusted satisfactorily to both the  American clubs.  Prize-Fight in New York.  New York, September 1.���At the  Broadway Athletic Club tonight Eugene  Benzinah was knocked out in the tenth  round by Joe Gaus. The time of the  tenth round was two minutes, twenty-  five secouds._   Senator Price Dead.  Qurciiisc, September 1.���Senator Price  died yesterday at about 10 o'clock.  PAYMENT MADE ON THE NOONDAY  And the Mine Never Looked Better.  Silvrhton, September 1.���The first  payment on the Noonday bond, which  fell due yesterday, was promptly met by  the lessees, who furthermore bought outright a one-quarter interest in the property. The mine has never looked better  or had niore ore in sight than at the present time. The main tunnel has been  driven ahead a distance of 210 feet, the  last fifteen feet having been drive��n into  the new ore shute, which shows itself to  be even bigger than that out of which all  the ore ..shipped has been stoped, A lower  tunnel is being driven to tap both ore  shutes at a good depth. It has now  reached, a point just below the mouth of  the upper tunnel, and a crosscut will be  run from this point to tho ore body exposed above.  Blanket-laden men are arriving here  almost daily from the south. They are  being brought in to work on the Emily  Edith wagon road, although at the present time there are enough local men to  do the Avork. It is reported on the  streets here that considerable dissatis^  faction prevails among the men on that  work and some have already quit work  and returned to Nelson.  The football match played here oh  Wednesday between Slocan City and Sil'f:  verton resulted in a win for the local  team, with four goals to nil.  The C.P.R repair gang are here repairing and enlarging the dock.'  Some-lumber for the Wakefield flume  was unloaded here on Monday and a  large order for the same mine will be  brought down next Tuesday.  Work on the ucw schoolhouse has commenced.

Tho Hall Mines, Limited, opened the  .present month with an old time .shipment  of copper matte and bulk copper. There  were all told just 271,117 pounds of  copper in the shipment which- was entered through the customs as being  valued at $l(),5l.'3. The copper was consigned to the refinery at Newark, New  Jersey, and will go forward over the  Crow's Nest branch of the Canadian  Pacific. Yesterday's shipment by the  Hall Minos represents in value more than  half the entire exports through the port  of Nelson for the former month. c  Does Not Like the Appointments.  Kaslo Ivoolcnaian.  Among recent Gazette notices we find  the appointment of D. C. Kurtz of Kaslo  to the office of collector of votes for the  Slocan riding. The duties of the position  are not only clerical but judicial. The  collector of votes presides at the court of  revision and is the judge in event of any  application being the subject of dispute.  Under the late administration W. J.  Goepel held the office .for the riding as  then constituted. In the other provinces  the sheriffs of the counties or barristers  duly admitted to practice are alone qualU  fled for appointment as revisers of voters*  lists. The lists of voters for Dominion purposes were formerly revised by j udges of the  county or supreme courts, judge Walkem  holding the appointment for this district.  Now the voters' lists prepared for provincial purposes (which in our case are  to be revised by Mr. Kurtz) will be the  lists for Dominion purposes as well. Mr.  Kurtz is a clerk in the office of John  Keen. He is ������. of youthful appearance,  probably not of age to have his own  name on the voters' list. He is a civil and  attentive young man and may iu good  time rise to be governor of the province.  But it appears strange that a man of ma--  turecyears and:vindependeut pbsitioii cannot be found to assume duties so respbn--  sible that they formerly required the  joint abilities of Mr. Goepel and Mr. jus-  ?ti&& WaJK&nfc ��� "iWtf 1& oh^ln^slibjeiiiS ^ev  ���alsosliote* piB���%iiiQihtinentulQf-^.::A:.'Mill^  ;*Simpkrnfc,aX-s^t,egi,warsof "--jj"--- -���>-*-��-^-��  ^<b [^nta   ���    7rrl'infl1Pn'       itch-    "Vi^o.^.11 .niln   ^n h  coiir t-at "Nelsdii k  know*  ��the^.lcoi  ilrSMlllsflfe;  ..aiidi, plnldr^iij .^  fain^niiii'^iCTl^ari^  'inhabwlwits... �� nCl'iSnbiVi"efJ...l,M''��is>vasse��i^  puftsufe&va\^aa*tiive - wlioLhad���'*$v6}fji&&(l'J,&e.l  ssoldier.:/.. ��pe>*ii}so^i!bu  ^ liay ing" losfc !:.six^" |neii:. dhf VaMeivgageihen-td'  r}nshi|d..a pillage 3and".p,aptin'edjtwenty��o��^  the inhabit.^tB, ��E wliich.::)ii}uib^r��"lie  Iviiiecl "tejn, plkcing "tlieir *hVads���bil;,piclc"s.

On December  81st last the mortgage loans of the company amounted to but $15,:]50 and the  assets to Jj? 10,753. These figures werj  swelled on July 10th to $45,000 in mortgage loans and $50,097.05 in assets. Much  of the new business which has come to  the company during the past few months  was secured in this city.  The management of the Nelson baseball team has decided to give a ball in  the theater on Thursday evening next.  Tho arrangements for the ball promise to  be of the first order.  Fred Cook of Ottawa, supreme grand  vice president of the Sons of England,  was given a nice reception last evening  by the local members of the society. The  guest of the evening gave a very intei--  e'sting speech upon the order and in  speaking of its growth announced that  two new'lodges wore to be organized in  the province, one of wliich would be  organized,, in Rossland. Following Mr.  Cook's address a programme of music  was presented. '  ALDERMEN WANT MORE BYLAWS  Than  They Can Enforce.  A notice has been posted calling for a  special meeting of the city council for  this afternoon at 4 o'clock. The business  which will come before the meeting will  consist of five liew bylaws. There is  one for the closing of barber shops on  Sunday, the penalty clause in which is  $100 fine for barbers who shave on Sunday. Due notice has been given of this  bylaw. It is doubtful if the other bylaws  can come up, jis insufficient notice is  alleged and at least one member of the  council will object to their consideration.  They provide for the numbering of the  houses throughout the city, for the collection of a road tax of two dollars froni  all males between the ages of 21 aud: 50  'years, for the regulation of wash-houses,  and for the prohibition'-of-'.the sale of  anything oil Sunday save milk; drugs and  medicine. The penalty clause in tliis bylaw is also $100 fine. ,  '^��&        "rB, <i\n.a& ^Ify     ftD��'<'      f^       "��*��     J.   ^0����   ^n      ���nCuDn  L'|The-.'Be.*l^  Inyestiga-tfng Parjby Seat.- -  St, MlCHAfet, Alaska, Aiigust 14 via  Seattle, Septeniber l.-^TDhe investigation  of the reported innrder Of tho .'members  of the Jessie expedition by iudiaus at  the nionth of the  KuSkmyim  river last  suiniuer has begun.

RknNMS, September 1.���M. -Godfrey  Cavignae, forinerly minister of Avar,  returned to Hennes this evening. There  is much speculation respecting tho motive  for his reappearance, here. The general  conjecture is that it implies a fresh  shuffling of the cards of the prosecution.  Symptoms of despondency have manifested themselves in Dreyfusard circles  during the last few days.

To do this they  have decided to move the $5000 bankrupt  stock, which they purchased from the  estate of Crawford' & McMillan, from  Sandon to Nelson. The bulk of the  stock is now on the way. It was purchased away below- the regular wholesale  price so there will be no fake in their  marking at cost. In another column will  be seen the firm's announcement that the  sale will commence on or before Saturday next dependent upon the arrival of  the goods in Nelson.

Ceaseless Activity.  TALE OF DEATH AND SUFFERING  In the frozen North.  Skattlr, September 1.���Two steamers  arrived   from   Alaska   today    bringing  about 500.miners fortunate and unfortunate.    The  Lauiada came  from St.'Michael and the Humboldt from  Skagway.  The   total   amount of   gold  dust   they  brought down is estimated at half a million.    The reports  from   the Cape Nome  districts are still conflicting, but the fact  remains that considerable  gold dust was  brought from there by passengers on the  Liiurada.    The dust is very  fine and had  to  be  amalgamated.    S.  A.  Warren   &  O.  II.  Roberts  of Denver  brought out  $50,000 from the "Ragle  City district,  J.  Dickinson, who has been iii that  district  six years had  .$25,000.    Prom  the  Klon-  dyke came J.-Y.  Ladd with  $20,000,   E.  McGrath with $50,000 and Charles Anderson   with  $10,000.    One  stalwart  miner  struggled  toward  the  assay office   this  morning with a sack of dust fifteen inches  long, and was asked where he came from:  "Eagle City, sir, and that on the -American side, and I am  an American  miner,  and don't you foiget it."    Ho seemed to  take as much pride in the  latter xiartfof  his statement as he did in his sack of dlist. ���  Many hard luck stories are also told.    T.  C. Martin of Chicago lies  in Providence .  hospital,  and   his   old  partner, Thomas %  Craigie of the same  city, is dead on the$i.'  barren and inhospitable  shore of Kotze- ,:  bue sound.    Martin  went  in  two years |  ago and is a physical wreck, glad to have   -  escaped with  his  life. "He says the ter-'���%  rors  they  experienced  were awfid  and ^  cannot   be   described.

The Millmen's Combine.  A meeting of the sawmill men was held  in the Phair hotel last evening, when the  proposed combine of all tlie mills in the  iuterior of southern British Columbia Wius  further discussed. At the meeting last  evening the following mills were repre-.  seuted : G. O. Buchanan, Nelson Saw and  Planing Mills, W. P. Say ward, P. Genelle  & Company, while Louis Blue of Rossland  represented the Trail, Rossland and  Boundary mills. Statements as to the  value of the plants and timber limits of  the several mills were then submitted  and discussed. The details of the several  valuations were withheld, but it is said  that in the aggregate they would amount  to at least $1,500,000. Another meeting  will be held this' morning when it will  be definitely decided whether or not the  mill, men aro to have a combine or not.  ba, and. it. m.eans�� .iij.Bli.ous.-f0r.-tlie-.a1m#t^  ers  -of   the'.We}^/^^^  .the whea't -,Qrop'.. iS.

If the council passes  any such bylaw, the city will have a  lively fight on   its  hands,  much   livelier  than a majority of the aldermen want.

The building is being elected by P. Burns & Co.,  and will be 700 feet long.  At present thai'C are only two aspiring  politicians in Nolson. One is a Conservative who aspires to be leader of the old  Turner crowd in Kootenay, and he would  like to be premier and minister of mines.  His name is J. Roderick Robertson. The  other is a Liberal, who aspires to a seat  in the legislature; but ho does not like  tho crowd that he has to train with. J lis  name is G. Frank Beer.  The Feeders of Greed.  Toronto Telegram.  In a country like Canada where the  tendency of a government is to grow  stronger and an opposition weaker at the  polls an independent .journal is more apt  to criticise the faults of prosperity than  to chide the weaknesses of adversity. A  government wliich is acting necessarily  does more to invite criticism than an  opposition which is talking. It is the  duty and privilege of an independent paper to. uphold certain ideals, to battle for  certain principles. The tendency of a  party in power is to conform to the so-  called law of political necessity. A journal which is seeking to exalt its ideals  and advance great public principles is inevitably separated from a government  which is ignoring these ideals aud outraging these principles. A sound public  opinion demands that the government  should not be too strong or the opposition too weak. English public affairs tire  ennobled by the* prevailing sympathy for  the under dog, and political strife in Canada is degraded for lack of that sympathy. Conditions must change materially  before independent journals -will have  any cause to rally to the support of Liberalism at. Ottawa and Toronto, where  governments which might be advancing  great principles have become the feeders  of greedy, corporations.   -  A Lying Telegram.  Truro (Nova Scotia) News.

It is possible sometimes in wln'st to  make a double play, as it were, a discard  showing your weak suit, and ab tlie same  time declaring foui; trumps. The old  mastei'S used to state it as it general rule  that when "strong in trumps" you should  . not ruIf- doubtful cards. It took some  time for the authorities to define  "strength in trumps,"- but they finally  agreed that it was four or more. Mpdei'ii  players dp not think it necessary to pass  a doubtful trick with five or more  trumps, because with so many they are  usually strong enough to riifl" and lead.  The exceptions are hands in which the  fifth trump looks as if it might be useful  as a card of reentry.  Discarding .when you. cannot win the  trick, or it is already your partner's, and  discarding second hand on doubtful  tricks, are two'different-tilings, In tlie  lirst case there is a good deal of judgment  to be used as-to the suit which you shall  select to discard from, but,in the second  there is usually nothing to decide, except  whether to ruff the trick or pass it.  There are times when it would doubtless  bo good policy to ruff a doubtful trick,  oven with four good trumps, but there  are others when-'if would be very foolish  to trump iii, even with three small ones.  This rule about trumping doubtful tricks,  just because you have less than four  trumps, should  be  made rather  elastic.  Is now prepared to issue Drafts and Letters  of Credit on Sk,aguay, U.

Philip  II'designed a coat of arms for the infant  capital���a star upon an azure  field over  three golden crowns..   The churches, convents and  monasteries of Lima wore the  finest  and most costly  in America, and  the records show that $!)0.00(),()()0 was invested in   such   means  of grace by  the  early authorities.     Several of  the most  imposing churches and twoa.i' three monasteries   have   been . preserved,    but  the  greater number have been' destroyed or  are badly out of repair.'   While most of  the piety is shown by the women of the  country,  they are not allowed to enter  churches with their bonnets on.    It is the  custom  to wear a niauta or mantilla to  church, and worshippers who enter with  a "gorra," as they call a bonnet in Spanish,  even  between the hours of service,  are  immediately   ordered    out   by   the  sacristan or some of the othei' attendants.'  The respect usually paid to the members'  of the diplomatic corps does not exempt  them from  this rule,  and  Mrs. Dudley,  wife-of the  American minister, who 4.S  herself a Catholic, says that before  she  learned   the fact she was turned out of  two churches because she had a hat upon  her head.  Steel Making   in Canada   Two great steel companies are going  into manufacturing in Canada upon so  enormous.a scale that when operations  are fairly got under way, there ought to  be an end of the steel famine which is  now delaying and paralyzing steel ship  building and similar industries in Europe.  The Whitney establishment now being  erected at Sydney in Nova Scotia is to be  eclipsed by other works to be established  at North Sydney' near by. It seems that  a deal had been made in England to  'merge the.Nova Scotia Steel Company-of  Glasgow and the General Mining Associa-  tibnn,.which latter is the oldest coal company in Cape Breton.    The concern will  come to a certain city to be present at a  secret political conference as the representative of a district boss. In other  Avoi'ds, he wasn't there in a professional  capacity, but merely as the boss' confidential friend. Well, I saw him in his  room at the hotel, and ho told ine curtly  that he had nothing to say.  " 'All right,' I replied, 'but I don't mind  telling you that we already have a pretty  full account of this affair from another  source. I leave it to you, as a journalist,  whether it wouldn't be better to give mo  a plain statement than to run the risk of  a garbled report.'  " 'My dear follow,' he exclaimed, slapping mo cordially on the back, 'let her  garble! Garble it thoroughly! Garble it  from all four corners and across the middle! This is a story you simply can't  garble too much!"  "I left him, somewhat puz/.lod .at his  confidence, and, not being able to find out  anything anywhere, we printed next to  nothing about the meeting. Next day I  happened to meet my man again and expressed some surprise at his sangfroid  overnight.  " 'You didn't seem to care how much  we knew,' I said.  ���' 'Oh, but I did,' he replied. 'I was iii  agonies of apprehension until you made  that remark about the danger of a garbled report. Then I knew you didn't  know a blamed thing. You see,' he added confidentially, 'I've told that lie myself exactly 719 times.' "  Light Fluid in Which Cork Sinks.  Now that hydrogen has been liquefied,  there seenis to be no more worlds to conquer in that special direction. It was a  remarkable coincidence that the first public exhibition of this latest wonder was  made in connection with the centenary  of the Royal Institution of Great Britain.  Professor Dewar, iii opening the exhibition, spoke of liquid hydrogen as a new  instrument.' of research, which it eminently is by virtue of the extremely  low temperature at which .alone it can  exist, and which low temperature it,  by its presence or contract, enables  other substances approximately to reach.  FULL LINE OF  The liquid was exhibited in a state of  gentle ebullition in a vacuum tube immersed in liquid air, the latter serving to impede the access of the heat. The hydrogen is a transparent liquid and. besides  being the coldest, is also the lightest liquid  known, a cork drops immediately to  the bottom of it. At the bottom of the  vessel containing the liquids there appeared a whitish substance, which Avas,  in fact, solid air, or air ice. It is impossible to avoid the air ice in the  bottom of tho vessel, as tho  air at the surface of the liquid is by  the intense cold, condensed, liquefied and  subsequently solidified, and, being so  much heavier than the hydrogen, it sinks  and accumulates at the bottom. To  show that the liquid was really hydrogen  .a light was applied to a small quantity,  which at once burst into, brilliant flame.  Solids immersed in the liquid long enough  to attain the same temperature were,  upon being taken out, covered with  liquid air, which would run down and  drop off.  An Unusual Admission.  Congressman Floss of Chicago has returned from an European tour and declared that the European nations are far  ahead of the United States in naval  methods and abilities. This is an unusual statement for a citizen of the  United States.to make, they seldom see  anything abroad better than they have  at home.  The Tremont Hotel  P. Barns c& Co.

There .*vve a great many deceptive dis-  liards, both in your own suits and those  l.f your' adversaries. These are made for  Ihe especial purpose of leading your ad-  liei'SaKes to misread the ha-mfe. A re-  Inarkablo example of such a play was  Ivhen a player who saw that both the  |vinnlng cards of his suit were on his  right, aud.discarded his own best of thy  f'nifc to make tlio player oil his left think  lie had the two above it, and. so. fooled  liim out of two tricks by getting him to  load another suit, which Was held by the  liaj'tnoi' of the gay deceiver. Such arti-  ji'ees are, of course, useless except against  [lie best players, because duffers do not  lead hands, and the only inference they  Ikuw from a discard is that you have ho  jt'timps or don't waut to ruff.  The discard, when you can trump, can  le made only when a plain suit is lead.  It therefore presupposes that yon have in  'rour hand some trumps aud at least one  ifoocl  suit,   and   that  the card  thrown  fl. way is the one youean best spare.   It is  ^ery seldom that such a discard will be  Suisteading, because it is not often that a  player will have to discard from his best  jiuit iu order to keep a singleton ace or an  junior guarded.    If such a case arises, and  ihe player is not averse to having trumps  pome out, it is better to discard some in-  perior card, perhaps as high as a nine, so  lis to give the 'hand the appearance of  ���strength,  and  so  invite   a  trump lead.  Che same tactics must be followed if you  (have only one plain suit iu your hand.  The City Founded by Pizarro.

John McAlman, who has been acting as  convict guard at the provincial jail, is  again in charge of provincial prisoners.  The frequency with which prisoners made  their escape from the chain gang-while  under McAlman led the warden to refuse  to turn the men over to him, but an arrangement has been arrived at whoreby  the number of prisoners in the gang will  be reduced to six...- Another amendment  which might well be made in prison rules  would be a regulation prohibiting prisoners from begging tobacco while passing  through "the city streets.  There woro throe changes yesterday in  the   firms   doing   business   upon  Baker  street.     The   Exchequer   saloon   passed  from tlie joint  ownership of A. IT.

Angus Shaw retired from  the grocery business, having sold his stock  to George Bell &  Co.  of llevelstokc and  Endoi'by, who will continue the business.

The  week's   suspension'   is   the   punishment  meted out to the'ex-attorney general for  the case of champerty which was proven  against him.  '���Joe" Paquette yesterday succeeded  A. H.

Joe was formerly local manager in Nelson for the Canadian Pacific  company, which position he resigned to  accept employment with the Spokane  Northern company at liossland. It is  understood that A. H. Fischer will cultivate literature in the future, his first  effort being devoted to his reminiscences  of four years in Kootenay.    ~,  City engineer McCulloch has been advised that Armstrong & Morrison of Vancouver have shipped three carloads of  water pipe for the main from Cottonwood-Smith creek to the reservoir.
