 KRUCER'S REPLY IS RECEIVED  Anxious Time in Britain.  London, Septeniber 10.���Sunday Avill  be an anxious day for Great Britain. Tho  reply of the Transvaal government it is  known tonight has been formulated, and  is in the hands of the British agent at  Pretoria. Furthermore, the wires at the  foreign ollico are busy with a long dispatch from the British high commissioner  in South Africa, sir Alfred .Milner, to the  secretary of state for the colonies, Joseph  Chamberlain, which is being rapidly repeated to the hitter's Birmingham home,  so that the.contents of the Boer reply  will probably rest tonight with Great  Britain's colonial secretary.  Unless South Africa is peopled with  false prophets, the Boers have either'  evaded or delied what practically  amounted to an ultimatum from the  British cabinet. From the tenor of their  recent communications to Mr. Chamberlain the Hoers could hardly be expected  to do otherwise. However, as frequently  ]iointed out, this presumed action upon  the part of the Boers does not make war  a certainty, though it docs place the  British cabinet in a position whore it  must take steps so aggressive that war,  or an ignominious submission, will be the  SUNDAY MORNING, SEPTEMBER 17, 1899.  PUBLISHED AT NELSON, BRITISH COLUMBIA.  DAILY (BY MAIL) $5 A YEAR;  WEEKLY, $2.  only alternative remaining to the Transvaal.  This now serious phase of the crisis also  gravely increases the probability, that  the Boers would take time and diplomacy  by the forelock and confiscate the mines,  arrest the Uitlanders for high treason,  and otherwise resent, while the British  troops are in mid-ocean, what they believe is an attempt to rob them of their  inheritance. If the course of diplomacy  is not fore-shortened the British cabinet  will meet again and formulate specific  demands far more sweeping than the  recent ones. These will be transmitted  to president Kruger in the shape of an  ultimatum.  As the members of the cabinet are  scattered throughout the country it is  improbable that a council could be  gathered until Monday night at the  earliest, and there is every reason to believe the British government will exhibit  no undue haste in forcing Kriigcr's hand,  for it is nioro important to have tht reinforcements on the scene of action thau  gain the gratitude of the importunate  Uitlanders who .for weeks have been  crying for immediate aggressive action.  The logic of such a policy must be equally patent to president Kruger. It is  *ns jh a^dl^gqu^eiyg^  son ted with an address, and grand master  Thrift handed him a handsome gold-  mounted walking stick, which he asked  him to accept as a souvenir of his visit to  the Pacific Coast and as a token of the  moral and physical support that he would  always receive- as head of the association  from the Orangemen of Vancouver and  British Columbia as a whole. In replying  to the address and acknowledging the  handsome souvenir, Mr. Wallace dwelt  upon the progress and development of  Canada, of its vast resources and loyal  people; loyal and energetic alike in peace  or war, as illustrated by tho Dominion's  present prosperity and by tlie successful  termination of the warlike scenes and  events of IS.tf'.iT-Ot* and of IS 12-13.  A Famous Swindler Recaptured.  'Washington, September   10.���An  accomplished swindler,  shrewd  confidence  man,  and   a.   fugitive   from   justice  for  years, IJ.ov. Dr. G. T. Howard, was captured today by post office  inspectors  Baird  and Gould at .Jackson, Michigan. Howard  escaped from the penitentiary at Columbus, Ohio, about two years ago after having served less than three years of a nine  years   sentence   for   using   the   United  States   mails   for   fraudulent   purposes.  Howard  is. a  doctor  of divinity and a  a     lawyer,    and    was    the    editor    of  two    or   three   "religious     publications.  His  conviction   necessitated    two   long  trials,       both       of      which      resulted  in    a   "jury   disagreement.      Witnesses  were subpoenaed  from  all 'parts of the  country and Europe, among-, them  being  being the Hon. Robert T. Lincoln, United  States minister,   to  Great Britain,  and  Hon.   Jolrn    Carew,   consul   geneial   to  London.    By sending broadcast over this  country circulars representing that the  recipient's were the  heirs  to estates  iu  various places in Bur-ope, Howard under,  the  name  of E.  Ross,  manager  of  the  European   Claims Agency,  obtained  remittances from many of".'his  victims  on  the pretext that he would prosecute their  claims to the estate.

A PACKTRAIN THAT IS STILL IN  Competition With a Railway.  Away back  in   1SJX),  when  the  then  president of the  Canadian  Pacific   Hail-  way Company  hadn't a handle   to  his  name, a railway was being built between  the Columbia river and navigable water  on tho west arm  of Kootenay  lake,    it  was being built as  cheaply as possible,  and the reason given   for  so  doing  was  that as long as trains ran over it as fast  as ".Toe" Wilson's pack train  covered the  same distance it would fill the bill.     The  road was completed and "Joe,' Wilson's  pack train was sent to grass in the Kettle  River country.      That  was nearly  ten  years  ago.    The  then  president  of the  Canadian Pacific Railway Company has  retired from active business pursuits, but  that old packtrain is still doing duty, and  competing with the Canadian Pacific, as  the following will go to show:     The contractors who are running the big tunnel  on the Columbia <fc Western  railway,  a  few miles" from Brooklyn, use a good deal  of beef, and draw tlieir supplies from P;  Burns & CY>. at Nelson.     The rate ou the'  beef by express is two cents a  pound  if:  deli vered at the tunnel; but the old pack-  train,  running  in  connection   with  the  railway, delivers  it  on  the  ground for  $1.1.5 a hundred.  Meeting of Coal Miners at Fernie.  A mass meeting of coal miners and  mine laborers was held at Fernie on  Wednesday under the auspices of the  local union of the Western Federation-'of  Miners. Ralph Smith, M.P.P., aud James  Wilks made addresses. The coal company gave their employees ii half holiday  to allow them to attend[ the meeting. The  next day Messrs. Smith and Wilks inspected the mines at the invitation of  Mr. Jaffray and the officials of the coal  company. This would.<go to show that  the officials of the Crow's Nest Pass Coal  Company believe that the employees of  the company are entitled to some consideration. ,The chances are, every  such evidence of .good will will be repaid  witliybetterywQrk -��� andlinoEe ^iirterestjinj  ;&^rg'^m|t!|J  nitteiuli*-4Ue."a."m:tt^^  SSonl^l&f^  ..p*"*"1"^' D-ri^Po-   ,������- .".--'"ft.nn �����%-"%>la,= 4fl'V^-_ v*Jfv--V"-F'��'1^ u- ���toli.-'Vi.?--"  '"rr-     J"-   - "  RAILWAY AND STEAMBOAT NEWS  ,   New Bates For Nelson Jobbers.  The new rate issued by the Canadian  Pacific. Railway company to Nelson jobbers was received here yesterday and  goes into effect at once. The issii.tnee of  this rate to the jobbers of Nelson is an  admission by the^railway company of  Nelson's claim to being the distributing  center for all that section of country  from Fernie on the Crow's Nest branch  to Greenwood on tho Robson-Peuticton  branch and south of Arrowhead. Tlie  reductions made to the jobhers amount  to something better than a cut of,, 25 per  cent under those which formerly obtained. For Crow's Nest Pass points, between  Fernie and Nelson a. common rate of 42  cents if fixed for straight or mixed carloads. This rate applies to canned goods  of all kinds, which- includes the bulk of  Nelson's jobbing trade. For Arrowhead,  Slocan points, Trail and Rossland the  carload rates for'the same class of goods  is reduced to 28 cents and the rate for  less than carloads is reduced to 40 cents.  These jobbers rates will probably be applied to, the Boundary district as soon as  the Boundary bronch is taken over from  the construction company.  Crick and H.Christie became known as  being good for any reasonable'' amount.  Two days after the men had left for the  north a Scotland Yard detective arrived  in. town, and did not want to hear anything about any one but the two gentlemen named. He said that one of them  hud stolen government bonds worth  .$57,000 from a house in London and that  the other had arranged their negotiation. Tho detective was just preparing  to make chase along the trail for them,  when Christie came back to town for  some things they had forgotton in the  hurry of departure, and he was promptly  arrested. Arrangements are now being  carried out to capture the other man.  NEWS OF TOWN AND DISTRICT  Tackled the Wrong Man.  Constable Allan Forrester of Robsoit  last evening brought George McDonald to  Nelson upon a charge of having broken  into and damaged the house of a woman  named Cailyle. McDonald was around  Robson for- several days and. became a  nuisance by begging money. He announced that he was a prize lighter and  that he had an engagement in this city.  When constable Forrester went to arrest  him ho said that he might as well commence work upon the constable. The  result was that Forrester knocked him  out in a few minutes. When he was  brought before stipendiary magistrate  Crease McDonald pleaded guilty to a  charge of vagrancy and was sentenced to  three mouths' imprisonment at hard  labor. It will take him about this time  to recover from the effects"of his mill  with constable Forrester.  |tjj]|$||��m  landi���^Ilcs''IaBe^^  NELSON.

A Slanderous Simile.  Toronto ToloKrimi.  Lack of intimate acquaintance with  the conditions governing the northern  half of this continent to which we belong  can alone excuse the extreme wildness of  lord Rosebery's recent assertion that railway presidents in America in power and  influence are equivalent to English dukes.  The earl of Rosebery has not been a close  student of railway presidents' performances in Canada, or he would hesitate to  thus slander the names of Van Home and  Shaughnessy by conceding them the  simple sphere of influence controlled by  a titled aristocrat of England. In this  matter of power a British duke is a bare  office-boy at Downing street, London,  compared with a C. P. R. president on  Parliament Hill, Ottawa, Ontario. A  British duke is uoav the supreme head of  the empire; neither does he .aspire to  ownership of the English navy as a  means of perfecting a fast Atlantic service. Yet here in Canada we have a  railway magnate -whose., modest ambitions tend'' towards the absorption of  our national railway, and Avhose simple  request is apparently as much the law at  ���Ottawa as the command of Abdul Ham id  at Constantinople. If lord Rosebery is  looking for individuals to illustrate the  power of the American railway presidents, let him seek emperor Bill of Germany and czar Alexander of Russia.

To  thecai'pet knights whoso dancing  days  came  to  an  end  a  generation  or  more ago the announcement of the danc-  .   ing masters at their convention last week  ._(. that the wait/, is no longer popular, must  ���'���  have come both as a surprise and shock.  -All the statistics, however,- seem to justify the declaration ofthe masters and to  indicate that the good old waltz that became popular.a  hundred years ago, and  was danced iii Germany no one knows  how  many years before that, is giving  way to .the quicker two-step.    The dance  ��� 'that-pur grandfathers and grandmothers,  learned  only after patient practice has  been  succeeded  by the two-step that a.  girl or boy can learn in two minutes of  sidewalk dancing to the music of a hurdy-  gurdy.  It is not with any pleasure that the  dancing masters make their semi-official  announcement of tho change, for to them  the transition means loss of business.  Of all the round dances the wait/, is the  most difficult to learn, and that fact  alone has always made it profitable for  the teachers. Nowadays when knowledge of the two-step is all that is required to enable a person to go through fully  half of the list of dances at any function,  there isn't apt to be such a demand for  professional instruction. So tlie masters  protest and it will bo no fault of theirs if  the decline of the wait/ is anything moie  than temporary.  ' Dealers in sheet music have the same  .Story to toll. They declare that the de-  maud for waltz music has been steadily  decreasing for several yeans and that the  sales of music written in two-fourths,  four-fouvths, and six-eighthb time suitable for the two-step have increased in  proportion.  There are almost as many theories advanced to explain the decline of the  wait/, as there are myths and legends relative to the origin of dancing. All are  agreed, hoAvever, that the ease and quickness with which the two-step may be  learned is the principal reason for its  present popularity. Some of the old-  tiinert, wlio were iu their ballroom prime  ten years ago declare that the recent  death of Strauss has had something to  do with the case. But the yonng folks  laugh at this, and say that Strauss was a  back-number in this city long before he  died, that his music was seldom played  at dunces, especially at fashionable ones,  and that if there is any one now who  should be called the "wait/ king," it is  ^Waldteufel Another explanation    is  that the wait/ has suffered the fate of  the bicycle, only by a slower process. It  became too popular-:,, arid ttiien prizes  were given for the best "lady and. gent  "walt/ers" at Bowery festivities, it 'hurt  that particular* dance iu other parts of  the town.  But this talk about the deeline of the  waltz rule, applies to the large cities aiid  to certain .pai'ts of tliGin. Tlier'e are  some Ifffeli avenue anthor-ities who do not  itgree with the aVei-age dancing master  tliat tire waltz is going out. They a<!uiit,c  however, that tlie tw'ovsfcep is just its  popular as the waltz eveii in their own  iiiuited ciiX'les. The dalieing niariager  fyr .Sherry's said yesterday tliat it was a  ease of half aiid half. "I am sure," lie  COlitiimed, "that I have found plenty of  waltzing at all the summer places this  season. Of course the city season liasii't  opened yet and we can't tell what will  happen when it does."
