 PRESIDENT KRUGER SAYS THE  Issue Must be Left to God.  Pretoria, September 12.���"I have  given them my clothes," said president  Kruger, in concluding an impressive address to the volksraad this afternoon,  "given them when tliey have asked for  them; f have given my shirt when they  have asked it; but now they have asked  for my life���the independence of my  country! That cannot be. The issue  must be left to fJod."  All the speeches this afternoon were  more moderate in (one than in the morning, and president Kruger himself advised  calmness. In his address lie declared  that for many years the franchise had  been offered to British subjects resident  iu the Transvaal, and the fact that they  never had accepted it was proof that  they did not want the privileges demanded! that these demands, in fact,  were but a. subterfuge veiling designs on  the republic's independence.  The atmosphere of Pretoria today is  electric. The Boers will welcome peace  if peace may be had. They are calmly  awaiting war if war is inevitable, but  the burden of insuring peace or the onus  of provoking war they liave shifted to  the shoulders of the British colonial  secretary. The situation hangs now on  Mr. Chamberlain's reply to the latest  Boer communication, wliich amounts to  a reiteration of the demand for an abrogation' of the suzerainty claim, reinforced  by a withdrawal of the proposals which  have emanated from the .Pretoria government.

The Knglishman,  although forcing the pace at the outset,  was really never in it. McGoveru hatted  his opponent into partial insensibility.  The Brooklyn lad's arms worked like piston rods, and the punishment which he  meted out to Palmer was swift and terrible. The victory was clean cut and decisive. By mutual agreement the men  met at catch weights.  COME   EASY,   GO   EASY.  ��� .���.n:t"l*!rt'.��V"j  Shamrock Tries New Sails.  New. York, September 1.2.���The cup  challenger Shamrock took another spin  off the Jersey coast today. The winds  were light aud the yacht made a trial of  its sails rather than tests of its speed.  There was a moderate roll on the ocean  from the winds of the previous day; not  e tough to make the Shamrock pitch, but  only to show its general ease of motion.  Sir Thomas Lipton sailed on board the  challenger today. His first sail on it in  the tests in America. Five of the sails  used today were new. These were the  three headsails, the baloon jib and the  club-gaft topsail. Tho setting of these  canvasses was perfect. Tlie size, the cut,  the peculiar arrangement of the cloths  and the set of the big club topsail were  alone worth a trip to the hook to see, but  asya speed-testing performance yester'r.  day's sailing of the challenger was a disappointment for those -.who went to get  .���.;E^actsr:'j��'3 *r��;* ;fe"\*^.yf;4'��*.��>yy;���Sfl-Si,K.�� "v.*-?." ������":���*'^K'y-y  fIjiji'V'ElM  ���|^fc^i:il!.i:aite,i;  IgS!, ���>$? ���#?;  Untie Mining Worltl.  Men who get money easy, and without  mental or physical wear or friction do  not seem to place that value upon it  which others do who have gained theirs  by. hard knocks and pesristent labor. As  a rule miners arc not miserly, nor do tliey  hold on to'their earnings with that tenacity which distinguishes the close-fisted.  They are willing to give their money a  chance to double itself where they can do  so without cramping themselves or jeopardizing the comfort of those depending  upon them. This was particularly the  case with the early day placer miners  who cleaned up their rockers and sluices  for the ounces (not the dollars) in them.  Many of the old-time miners could not  stand  prosperity.    Some who were rich  one day would be prospecting for a stake  the next day.    Many could not or would  not go to work   Monday morning if they  had a dollar or two  of  their Saturday  afternoon's cleanup.    A few would "salt"  away their earnings till they liad enough  to join the old folks at home, or to marry  the "girl  they left behind them."    But  they were few who did this.    They formed the exception to the rule that the old-  time  placer   miner   Avas   a   spendthrift  when  he had money, but at all times a  free-hearted comrade and  a "hail fellow  well met."    The underground miners of  today, those who have families and children to educate aud provide for, are not  built Upon the lines which measured the  early day placer miners.    They are generally sober,  steady and hard  working,  ,kmowing.'just- ./what ...tlieir ��� cheek,���Y will  amouM���;to?afetho, ieiidyof ^^  ���1-tw]ia,c^lievi-:tnu's���my4bli,a;b.;"M  n-._pnrp..- comnno ?|-��t-TtMWrf-po<  REGULAR TRAINS ARE RUNNING  On the Boundary Road.

Local Government for Porto Rico.  Washington, September 12.���The cabinet meeting today was practically devoted to a discussion of a form of local  government for Porto Rico.

The1 people  there   have  been kicking for such facilities for over a  year, and they hope to get what  they  want  by continuing to kick.    The local  board of trade has the matter in charge.  On Tuesday last the board elected officers  for the ensuing  year,  and  as  the  president-elect is an old newspaper man  who  has   become  a  mine  manager  the  town  will  get  what   it   should  get   or  someone will know the reason Avhy.    The  board decided to draft a memorial and  forward it to president Shaughnessy of  the  Canadian Pacific, citing the urgent  need of placing a station and agent at  Moyie.    If president-elect   Drewry   will  only  take time  to draft  the memorial,  president Shaughnessy will  come down  off his high horse and telegraph orders to  his subordinates to   build  that   station  and appoint that agent, and Jdo- it within  thirty days.    Moyie is all  right, because  it  has  the  righb kind  of mines within  sight and the right kind of men developing them.  An Attempted Burglary. .  An attempt was made this morning to  break into bhe Lakeview hotel, bub bhe  burglars were inberrupbed. Gusb Erick-  sou, one of the proprietors, closed the bar  about 3 o'clock, but returning about ten  minutes to 4 o'clock he saw some one  turn off the electric light in the card  room of the bar. He enbered bhe bar in  bime bo see a man disappear from bhe  rear 'window, enbrauce bhrough which had  been effected by means of a 20-foot ladder. Before Erickson could get around  to the rear of the building the burglars  had made their escape. That the atbempb  to enter the hotel was ��)lanned early in  the evening was disclosed later when it  was found that the fastening of the rear  window had been tampered with so that  the lock would not /work.

Attempted Bank Burglary.  .Smith's Falls, Ontario, September 12.  ���.ft. Bairdj ,|unior clerk, and C Johnston,  cashier of the tJiiion bank here, wlio  both sleep in the bank, were awakened  by a noise at the front door. Both  clerks jumped up, and with revolvers  loaded went to the door and demanded  of those outside What they would have.  As no answer came, one of the clerks  threatened to shoot, when the intruders  took to their heels and made off. Some  iron crowbars, taken from Craine's shop,  had been used to pry open the door, and  bhe latter was pretty badly scraped and  splintered in the attempt. It was evident that there were two in the party.  Encourage the Home Manufacturers.  Nelson is becoming a manufacturing  town. Nearly everything that can be  made of wood and iron is manufactured,  and the work is creditably done. R. G.  Joy of bhe Star bakery is driving a bread  delivery wagon that was made in Nelson  by Johnston & Kinrade, and it will compare well with like wagons'manufactured-  in the East. One way to build up a town  is to encourage local industries, whether  it be the bread baker or the wagon  maker. ���- ���'; ....  ;.^h.0��4p*3^^^  h;|j^'i'|!^  :4vii^^i'es|)ect ;^|h ^11^ tliQ - \  ;jj0nip)iii^.a^id3th^  flJf^e: j^n;|i|ex;p%]jSiilt^bglfliij^cit,'' 'for" tji e4  .^���esei^ir-grle. ������ /^^sa^s'-thSifesfdb'of'-die';  fin t^^e^sjhag' .bp*Jl |^thajfe-^=b'a;$is;h^sy;b^��ny.  -.��ai"^i|;^.^#]'^V^ :  i ^is|iu_t%ini0: ll^al^lM��^^^'��^ SBfitte:-  inien^bilFthe':(^.pes.t^  :i:e|>outed:; to;t.heie  ���^��"1iijei!i^ will^bfii  ) '������ 3^shiii|r "Work? onf tlie, Streiet.

James Wilks, secretary of the Nelson  Miners'Union, left last night for Montreal, via the Crow's Nest Pass road, tb  attend the annual session of the Labor  Congress of Canada. Mr. Wilks goes as  a delegate of; the Rossland Trades and  Labor Council.  The Canadian Mining Institute should  change its name since it has become a  mere appendage of the Mine Managers'  Union.  Rev. Dr. Hamill of Belfast, Ireland, delivered an address in the Presbyterian-  church last night On his Impressions of  Canada. There was quite a large attendance, and the address was a good  one. Dr. Hamill goes from Nelson to  Chicago. ,  Ernest Menary of Orangeville, Ontario,  arrived in Nelson yesterday morning. He  is one of the best lacrosse players in  Canada.  There are people in Nelson who can,  even at this time of the year, eat green  peas grown iii their own garden, live oii  potatoes grown in their own potato  patch, and luxuriate on spring chickens  raised in their own barnyard.  At the open meeting of the Presbytery  of Kootenay at 8 o'clock tonight, in the  Presbyterian church, addresses will be  delivered on the subject of "The Relations  ofthe Church bo Social Quesbions" and  "The Century Fund," by the Rev. Messrs.  Gaudier of Rossland, McCoy of Cascade,  Ferguson of Whitewater, Judge Forin  and others. .The public .are'cordially.in-.  THE SOUTH AFRICAN REPUBLIC  Will Probably Accept a Conference;  London, September 13.���Owing to the  understanding' that Mr. Chamberlain's  note is to be published simultaneously iu  London and Pretoria, only a summary  has been telegraphed. The London  papers are inclined to withhold comment  until the text is available. Despite the  fact that the note is described as an ultimatum, the balance of opinion tends to  regard it as a rather moderate document  since, apparently, it does not fix a defi-  nate time limit, and leaves the real crux  of the dispute for the proposed conference, and does not raise the question of  su/.erainty. In a word, the note seems  to leave the way open to farther negotiations.  Tho Times, which  considers  the  summary obviously imperfect, says:    "It is  incredible that all mention of suzerainty  of the other matters in controversy'have-  been pa-ssed over and ignored."    It proposes a five year franchise and a greaber  rejiresenbiabion for bhe gold fields in bhe  volksraad, equaliby for bhe Bribish and  Dutch in the volksraad and equaliby for  bhe    old   and    new    burghers    in y regard    to   presidential   and   other   elec--  tions.-'���������'If the  conditions  are"'��� accepted,  a conference between  representatives of  the two governments shall follow for the  purpose of drafting the necessary  mens-.y  it res, and of avoiding the introduction of  unnecessary conditions by bhe Transvaal  governmeiib or bhe possibiliby of bhe passage of any bills calculated to defeat tlie  reforms.    In   view of the  fact the note  goes on to say that the present  sbabe of y  affairs in  South Africa  cannot be  prolonged.    The definite acceptance  of this /  proposal   is   demanded    without jdelay,  other wise her majesty's government will /.-'-  immediately   take  the  whole   situation  under consideration and will act so as to  bring about a settlement, o The situation /  is acute." y    /  A speciiil dispatch from Pietermaritz-  burg, capital of -Natal, says:     "President  Kruger, it is asserted in.reliable, quarters,;?.,  is x_repared to attend the proposed conference at Capetown provided that he is  assured that Mr. Chamberlain's latest dispatch   represents   all   bhab* will  be de-   ���  manded  by Greab  Britain.'

Tlie contest will take place  next Saturday either for a purse or gate  receipts, tlie purse to be not loss than  $200. Ail four men have competed in  drilling contests at Nelson.  Encouraging Damage Suits.  If bhe ciby council does nob repair the  holes in the city wliarf it will run an excellent chance of a heavy damage suit.  The wharf has been in a dangerous condition since the city took it over. A few  dollars would make it safe until some  plan of improvement for the wliarf  could be decided upon. It would be  money well spent.  May Go to the Penitentiary.

Hatred of Cromwell's Memory.

The protest is  unlikely to have  tho slighest effect, as the statue is not  erected by the   government, but is the  gift of some one who remains anonymous. THE TRIBUNE: NELSON. K C.

Whitney of Boston has offered the mayor of  Sydney, Cape Ih'eton, to contribute $2;"),-  000 towards the erection of a general  hospital in Sydney, provided he is one of  the board of management. It is the intention to include the surrounding municipalities in the scheme, it being a county  affair, and it is expected that in this-.way  over $."30,000 could be raised for the support of the institution. It has been suggested bhab tho county give the present  courthouse for the purpose. Mr. Whitney made his offer through the Cape  Breton Medical Society.  The Pope's Prayer.

CURRKNT RATK OF INTKRKST PAID  WESTMINSTER'S   RED   LETTER    DAY.  New Westminster Columbian.  The trembling light of tho Sabbath  morning beheld tlie battle over, the fire  fiend satiated-Avith his terrible victory,  and looked down upon a blackened, .still  sullenly glowing, Avaste of grotesque and  shapeless ruins, where, but a few hours  before, had stood as Avell built and handsome a town, business and residential, as  one would care to see. It was a sorrowful Sunday, that which followed the Saturday night, a year ago, of the fearful  scourge of fire. Feelings of regret, and  Avell-nigh despair, strove Avith the inability al most, to grasp and realize the calamity Avhicli had happened in a night,  . and the comparatively few, living in the  more distant portions ofthe town, wlio  knew nothing of the terrible experiences  of the night, Avere, as may be imagined,  dismayed beyond measure, Avhen they  "came down town."  But  even  such   an   apparently   over-  Avhelming disaster  was not Avithout its  silver lining, in the  very darkest hour.  Even  the first poignant pangs of grief  and despair were lightened aud  relieved  by the kindly expressions of sympathy,  accompanied by practical manifestations  ' of the same, which  poured in from near  and far, Avithout any limitations of race,  creed, or nationality, and many kind dor.-  oi'_,   on both sides  of the international  .boundary    liner    nctcd  'on>   the    wise  -apothegm, that "lie gives twice'avIio.givesJ  ��� quickly," thus obviating any immediate  suffering  from  the'effects   of  the   (ire,  which  would have been* serious but for  this  timely  and   welcomed   relief.    The  more permanent relief, which continued  to flow in for some time afterwards, Avas  not less welco.re and beneficent.  ' Recovered from the-first .shock of the  U";'amity, the pluck and courage, and invincible determination and energy, niaiii-  Ifested, as if Avith one consent, by the poo-  jpie of the burned  town, were, in tlicni-  I selves,   a   largo    compensation   for   the  loerrible disaster Avhich  drew  forth the  jxercise    of   those    admirable    virtues,  .which, in turn, have reaped their reward,  u ther splendid achievement of a twulvu-  liionth, towards restoring the town, that  lve have before   our eyes,   today,   and  Jvhich  AAre   have    endeavored,   in   those  pages, to set forth and sum up, for the  lienefit of our own citi/.ens and the oufr-  |ide world.    The showing is certainly a  | lost creditable, and gratifying one, and  j'C may Avell call the anniversary of the  lreat   fire,   "Westminster's    Bed-Letter  j 'ay," an d the day, if we mistake not, of  I io opening of a iioav and better civic era.  [I'lefHTIlfcr   THE   SOCIAL  INSTINGT,  ��� Ilitjdilton Koralrf.  ��� Every iioav aiid then you hear of an  Jiti-treati-iig society springing into ex-  jjteiiCe. being enthusiastically acC'ltiiilied,  |!iun$hiii;g and growing:; then .^iiddonly  (ietflines and soon you hear nothing  JiOfe of it because it lias ceased to exist.  l/itat has become of tlie greet aiiti-trea t-  \g movement started in Ghic/tgOft few  iionths ago���the movement tixiXb liad a  itton for its badge? Evidoiit)ly it lias  [lone glimmering through the gloom of  (tings that wore." But now Ave hear of  li Other movement of the same kind  [arted iu Balliinore, where a society litis  ['en organized called the Aiiti-Treatiiig  Irele, Although a circle is supposed to  live no end, we do not hesitate to pre-  2t thafc this circle Avill prove 'Mi ex-  Jption,  (The Baltimore eirclo hopes to grow un-  |! it embraces the whole North Ameri-  vu continent.   Its methods   are   some-  jliat more elaborate than those   of its  I'-edecessors.     Its   founders   believe   in  j'tiial as a means of solemni/.ing the vow  (.posed upon tlie man who has decided  shun the evil of treating and being  leated.    Here is part of the initiation  .'���oceedings, as described by a Baltimore  [iper:    "The circle holds regular nieet-  gs once a Aveek, and since the sign has  ���sen put out a number of applications  Jive been received.    Tlie membership at  Jreseiit  is  twenty-eight.      To join   the  tub,  a  person  pledges  himself   not  to  ���eat.    He appears at a regular meeting  ixd   is   initiated.      The    president   au-  Jounces his name and then orders him to  F-eat for the last time.    A keg of beer is  J't'i hand, and, as the new member turns  ['je spigot to draw the beer, he receives  an electric shock violent enough to make  him jump. A pen is handed to him with  which he is to sign his name to the roll,  lie finds, when lie takes the pen, it is  charged with electricity." .For each violation of the obligation a lino of 2ii cents  is imposed.  All this may be good fun for the boys:  but it won't last long. In fact, these an-  ti-treating societies should not be necessary. If a man really wants to stop  treating other folks 'and having other  .folks treat him, can easily have his way  liy just exerting his will. He can just  decide to 'say no, and stick to it. But  this tendency of men to associate together to oppose the treating habit is in  itself evidence of the tremendous power  of the social instinct which is at the root  of the evil that they are fighting.  -A Japanese Dinner.  He who does not like the Avay the  Japanese cook fish must be hard to  please. They are better fish cooks than  the French. The .Japanese waters are  very prolific, and the natives seem to  have learned in cooking to preserve the  inherent flavor of the fish, while their  sauces are very simple. And as for eels,  as they are cooked at the kandagaAva, a  teahouse in Tokio, he who has tasted  them-lias established a standard iu his  mind by which to judge other eels.  Seaweed Ave had, too, thin as paper,  and crisp; i't is the weed of tho sea that  is left oil the rooks, aud scraped from  them by the iisherAvoinaii with shells,  and then dried in the sun. It is eaten as  a relish, and litis a delicate flavor suggesting cinnamon.  Rice avc had in abundance; it Avas  served from a bucket (not unlike ours,  but not quite so deep) of uu pain ted Avhite  pine, with a little Avooden shovel sonie-  Avhat like those our children use iu playing at the seashore. Our rice bowls were  filled again and yet again, and when Ave  covered our boAvIs it meant avc had finished,dinner. I have soon the Japanese  look witli indifference' at a.fish cooked in  a Avay that made, my mouth fairly Avater  with desire, but when they are ^ervocl  with rice' it receives, their immediate  attention.   "  With our dinner snake AA'as served. It  is the national spirituous drink, and has  been described as looking like sherry, and  is served Avarm. It is made from rice,  and is not sparkling, neither is it strong,  and its effect is very gentle and agreeable. I do not knoAV just Avhat AAre drink  in America that has a like effect; it does  not give that happy exhilaration that  champagne does, nor that feeling of rosy  respectability of Burgundy, it has not  the stolidity of lager beer, nor the concentration that our cordials have.  Only Way to Win.  Toronto Telegram.  The Ottawa Free Press brackets Joseph  Martin and  \V.   AV.   B.  Melnnes  in its  sneer at "impracticable" politicians.  The  career   of Joseph   Martin  has   been   so  rich in practical results to the party and  the country that it needs no explanation.  And Avhat  act  in   the*  career of Mr. Melnnes suggests  that  he  is  "impracticable?"    When little more than a boy, Mr.  Melnnes was practical enough to take advantage of divisions in an overwhelmingly  Conservative constituency and Avork his  own  way  to  parliament.    Neither Wilfrid   Laurier    nor    the    Liberal    party  could     do     anything     to     help     Mr.  Junes     in     Nanaimo,     and     yet     the  man    Avhose-  skill    and    strength   won  a  Conservative   seat   for   the   party  is  sneered at as impracticable.    Every pub-  blic man who is not content to  cling to  jhis seat in parliament and fool the people  'is apt to be denounced as  impracticable  :by the Ottawa'Free Press and other at-  ��� torneys  for  Ontario  Liberalism.    As   a  Canadian,  Mr. Melnnes  is  right in  declaring  war  to  the  death    ou  oriental  j labor.    Wilfrid Laurier has not hesitated  'to perpetuate conditions-Avhich Avill make  it uncomfortable for the  Avhite  laborers  of British Columbia, and Avhy should Mr.  FULL LINE OF  Melnnes hesitate to create conditions  Avhich Avill make it uncomfortable  for sir Wilfrid at Ott.wa ?  British Columbia has no right to  blame eastern public opinion for the Dominion government's failure to enact  laws against Oriental labor. The milk-  and-water tactics of Hewitt Bostock and  Aulay Morrison encourage the govern -  ment to trifle Avith the question, and if  the one strong man in the whole British  Columbia delegation acts so as to persuade Eastern Canada that the Canadians  on the Coast are in earnest on this question the Laurier government Avill no  longer be permitted to refuse protection  to Avhite labor on the Pacific slope.  The Better Class Can't Blush.  One can buy American beef in London  cheaper than in New York. AVhy the  latter city should bo so oxpcnsi\*c a place  to live in is not clear to any one avIio has  not investigated the conditions there.  The municipal government is still such  as to call the blush to the faces of tho  better class of its citizens.
