 m  CHAMBERLAIN GAINS HIS POINT  Time Secured for Keinforcement.  PiKTrcRMARrmun.fi, Natal, September  20.���The troops that were yesterday  moved from Ladysmith to Dundee, including the Leicestershire regiment, the  Royal Dublin Fusilecrs, 200 mounted infantry, and the Eighteenth hussars, ���will  form ti new camp at Gloncoo, their places  being filled by others en route fiom  India. The movement was executed so  smartly stud unexpectedly that the Boers  were unaware of it, until it was actually  accomplished.  London,  .September  2fi.���The  general  feeling, including that of the  pro-Boers,  as indicated by articles in  the afternoon  newspapers today, is  that the published  despatch of the secretary of state for the  colonies to the British high commissioner  in .South Africa, sir Alfred Milner, clears  the way for peace if the  Moors desire it.  IU any event, it is pointed out,  it .affords  further delay, which in the case of Great  Britain is certainly advantageous,  as   it  gives time for the  reinforcement  of  the  garrison at the  Cape.    The  papers generally, however,  express  the  hope  that  president Kruger will see  his   way clear  to meet Great  Britain's  views,  and  tho  Westminster Gazette,  which   is  not  an  an ti-Boor paper, says: "President Kruger  and his advisers still liave  a  chance  of  securing peace  with   independence."    In  the meanwhile, the despatch of troops to  South Africa  proceeds ������uninterruptedly.  Three held batteries  arrived  .at Birkenhead today and will-embark for Durban,  Natal. A cablegram from Capetown says:  "Quantities of stores and ammunition arj  leaving hero  daily.     The  movement  of  troops to Natal is merely a precautionary  measure to secure the coal mines, and in ���  no wise in tho nature of a menace. There  are no-imperial troops on the immediate  border.    Rumors of collisions   should bo  received with caution."

Thei'tv is feverish activity lu-.all the departments, and tlie dispatch of riders  carrying instructions to towns removed  from the telegraph lines is continuous,  Windermere District News.  WiNiM-iRMERi*:, September 22.���R. R.  Bruce has returned from a short trip to  Nelson, and is now at the Sitting Bull,  arranging for a winter camp.. The fine  weather of the past two weeks has sent  the prospectors back to the bills. The  last few days has witnessed a rush to No.  2 creek. Joe Lassord brought In some  very fine, specimens of gray copper-galena  ore. This is the first find on the creek,  aud it proves to be iu the same mineral  belt as Horse Thief. J. Whittier and J.  . Miller of the Trail smelter are visiting  different properties of the district.  Bower, the New York expert, is here  again; this time looking at the Frasier-  Powers property ou Toby creek.  More Trouble Brewing in Samoa.  Auckland, New Zealand, September  20.���Advices from Samoa, under date of  September 20, received here, today, say.  quiet prevails there, but the feeling  among tho whites is that, there is trouble  ahead.. It is added that Voii Buelow, the  former lieutenant, in. the Gorman army  P. Angrignori will build an ore house  and stables on the Queen CityHat, so as  to better handle the supplies to and the  ore from the Marion anil Hartney during  the winter. His pack train will make  two trips a day'to the mines, while his  teams will haul the supplies and ore to  and from the Hat and the town.  It is a most encouraging sight to witness the heavily loaded pack train going  out every morning from town to near-by  properties. Quite a contrast to the order of things obtaining hero in past years.  The travel on the Carpenter creek wagon  road is increasing materially.  Among tho properties around the town  that will be worked this winter aro:  Tho Lost Tiger, Hartney, Marion, Home  Run, Anglo-Saxon, Neglected, Bosun and  Lake Shore,' on Silver mountain; and the  Mollie Hughes and Capella. on Goat  mountain.  .1. C. Bolander and -partners arc erecting a camp on the Adlai, close to the  Noonday mine, and will work the claim  during the winter.  ��� O. J. Marino and- wife left this afternoon, to take up their residence in  Pueblo, Colorado.  The Minnesota Silver Company, operating the Ivanhoe, have at last secured a  site for their concentrator, wliich will be  erected just below Sandon, and close to  the C.P.R. track.  The Marion looked better Saturday  than at any time since work commenced  under the new management. An ore car  jind the necessary T rails have arrived  for the Marion and they will be packed  up and put into place at once. There is  little doubt of the bond being lifted, on0  the property.

Chadbourn returned to Nelson  last evening  from  the  Windermere district, where he has been in  the  interests  of the Hall Mines, Limited.    He  reports  that the miiiiug industry in that district  is yet in its primary stages, but there are  two or three properties sufficiently developed to ship ore, and arrangements  will  lie made with them for shipments to the  local smelter.    During the early  part of  the  present  month   Mr,  Chadbourn  secured a bond on behalf of the Hall Mines  on the.Black Prince  group  of claims on  Boulder creek, a tributary of Horse Thief  creek.    As there had been but two assessments done upon the  property, the bond  was seen red upon exceptionally good terms,  being for $11,000, with a very small payment down and no substantial payment  for one year. Mr. Chadbourn started a tunnel in upon the property and broke  into  good ore after he had gone two feet. The  tunnel was continued for forty-five  feet.  and  disclosed  a  very  lino body of ore.;  The ledge  appears  to be about ten feet  wide.    The  tunnel  has  boon  driven  in  along the footwall, upon which there is a  two  and  a  half foot body of bornite, or  as it is locally known  ruby copper.    No  assays  have  been   made, siiice the work  was started, but the croppings gave very  high returns in copper, and there is  also  the  likelihood  that the  ore will  carry  good values in silver.    With the showing:  on  the property at present it would be  impossible to bond it  for  $50,090,-which  is  rather  encouraging for  three weeks'  work.'   A short time prior to the securing of the bond by Mr. Chadbourn one of  the locators of the property sold his'half-  interest for $50.  Sold for Forty Thousand Dollars.  The well known Lardeau property, the  Towser, the next location to the famous  Silver Cup mine, owned by D. Ferguson  of Ferguson and J.

The public works committee liad a  lengthy session yesterday, when several  matters which had been referred to the  'committee from the council wore disposed  of. No action was taken by the committee with respect to the .purchase of the  land in the vicinity of the electric light  dam. The committee some time ago  offered F. C. limes $1200 for the land in  dispute as well as some additional land  which the corporation thought it would  require, but as no response had been received from Mr. limes the committee  could make no finding.  The matter of wharfage dues for the  use of the city wliarf was again discussed, but action was deferred until the  committee could make some arrangement  with the transportation companies using  the same. Tlie committee, while desirous  of making the wharf self-sustaining, does  not relish the idea of charging a fee upon  every one who travels over the wharf  with a handbag. The present idea is to  secure sufficient from the tr.arisportation  comptinies in a lump sum to keep the  wharf in repair, and then throw it open  for general use.  A. Pfeiffer's communication calling  attention to the necessity of repairing  Carbonate street in front of his property  Wits again laid over. To make the repairs  requested to advantage the city wouldalso  require to do certain other work around  the schoolhouse, and just at present tliere  is-some doubt as to whether the committee has the necessary funds.  George Ritchie's request fora sidewalk  on Ward street, from the corner of Latimer to Mill, street, was granted. The  city engineer will be instructed to lay a  three-plank walk, and at the same time  remove his owii fence, wliich encroaches  some four feet upon the street.  The petition asking for the grading of  a roadway on Baker street from Railway  to Slocan streets''was'.thrown out upon  the ground that there was no money  available for the work. "  ���  ^Jey-aiidiQthep,;  or make other arrangements satisfactory  to the council.  Action was deferred upon the application of A. E. Ifodgins for permission to  put an area into the basement of the  Madden bloek. The chairman of the committee will take the matter up with Mr.  Ifodgins and ascertain just what the intentions of the owner of the building aro  with respect to tho area.  The committee decided to recommend  that a handrail be placed upon the sidewalk on the south sido of Silica street  from Hendryx to Cedar street.  NELSON.  Ttis reported that thelocal telophon company will on October 1st increase its usefulness by giving subscribers the benefit of  an all-night service. In this event the  city council will endeavor to make some  arrangement with the company and the  users, of telephones in different sections  of the city whereby the telephones may  "be used for sending in fire alarms during  the night.  .Taoeb Dover and Dr. Hall have evidently decided to get the rock bluff, off  the corner of Silica and Hall streets  Avhether tho city council assists or not.  The former removed all the loose earth  for the purpose of "making a lawn in  front of his Silica street residence, and  yesterday the doctor commenced quarrying the stone out for the business block  which he is building on Baker street.

' !f?j?]_|l  Fbiiroi., Spain, September 20.-^There  has been renewed rioting here. The  strikers, women and children, attacked  the men at work in the 'arsenal. Stones  were thrown and revolver shots fired.  The gendarmes charged and dispersed the  mob. A number of persons wereinjured,  including the commander of the ironclad  Cardinal Cisneros. Troops are now  picketed along the leading streets.  A Fito Thousand Dollar Fire.  Rossland, September 20.���A;t 7.55 tonight a fire started just below Nickel  Plate flat, on the west of Center Star  gulch and south of the Second avenue  bridge. A very strong north wind prevailed, and hi a few moments five or sis  buildings were in flames. Owing to tlie  prompt action of tlie fire brigade the fire  was confined to a, comparatively small  area, about nine building.s being entirely  Consumed; For ����� time it looked as if the  whole western portion of the city was  doomed, if not the entire business section, and people weue greatly alarmed.  This is the first real fire with a gale blowing and the buildings hard to get at tliat  Rossland has experienced. There was  plenty of water and good pressure. The  loss is about $-5000.

Chief Thompson added  that tliere wasAilreitdy more or less difficulty ih raising fire ladders against Baker:  street bttildiiigs by reason of the tolc-  phane and other wires. The result was  that the mayor and alderman Fletcher  were appointed a committee to interview  tlie telephone company and see what arrangement could, be made respecting the  placing of poles in the alleyways,  The committee decided to proceed at  once with the construction of the first  section of the sewer in Addition A. Tlie  sower will run up Kootenay street from  the Mines road and up the alleyways in  blocks 15 and 23- from Kootenay street to  Stanley street., Tlie total distance is  about 18-65 feet. .

The water is only six feet deep on  the  bar  at  the  mouth of  the river.

A   TBUE   GHOST   STORY.
Is it not strange that a man forty-fh'c
years of age, with fair intelligence, sober,
and who liave knocked over this world n
great deal and have always boon skeptical, and .abhorred the idea of such things
as ghosts, to be made to believe in such
supernatural agencies this  late in  life?
Such is  our  case,  and   we   are   almost
ashamed to own it, but  nevertheless  it's
true.    We will state right here tliat Ave
are looked upon as a sober, truthful, honorable man by those who-know me (aiid
their name is legion), and what we relate
below, my wife, children aud self are all
willing to make sworn aflidavits, if necessary, that  queer things happen around
our home just as stated.    We reside in
Florida in a small new town, right on the
main  line of the Plant System railroad
leading from Waycross, Georgia, to Tampa,  Florida.    Our  residence   is   a. nine-
room, two-story structure, with barn and
stables, situated about one. quarter of a
mile  from the heart of town.    The first
indication  Ave had  that strange  things
happen around the place was about three
months ago.    About cleA-en o'clock in the
forenoon we came up home on our bicycle
and just before Ave got to tlie lot gate avc
heard a terrible hammering in the buggy
shelter.    Wc made sure that it was one
of our little boys out there, and avc called
to him to come and open the gate for us.
.lie heeded   lis not| and  avc called twice
more in a very loud tone, to come and
Open  the gate.,   lie failed, to come and
we got mad and intended to correct him
for,, not-coming .when Ave called' him to
open  the gate  for  us.    We opened the
gate ourself, gathered up a switch,  and
made for the buggy shelter Ayith the full
intention  of switching him.    When aa-c
got to the buggy she! tor we found no boy
there.    We Avent into the house and tolcl-
our   Avife  about   it.    "Why,"   she   said,
".Johnnie, nor any of - the children have
booh about the stables today."
We havo a small outhouse situated out
about forty yards from the" residence and
the door is hard to open. That door -will
open and shut twenty-five times a day
Avithout any human being near it, and it
is awful hard to open with your hands.
The other morning about eleven o'clock
my Avife Avas sitting in the dining room
near tlie table pealing some peaches.
We were sitting opposite her. Our
pointer dog AA'as in the room, picking up
crumbs from around the table,' and all at
once Ave heard him hallowing aud looking
in the direction where he was at the time
avo saAV him getting up from the lioor.
"lle~got"out""of"that_roonrin a ilurry; My"
wife says that she'wits looking right at
liim and heard the lick that knocked hinl
doAvn, The first thought struck us was
that a stray 'bullet* had coine in the Avin-
cToav and struck him. But after an examination of the canine, ivbaudoned that
idea. "
' A couple of Saturdays ago our little
boy brought a peek of Irish potatoes froiu
town and sot them on the dining table.
My wife A\ras iii the kitchen when tlie boy
came in, and avc were sitting iu tlie back
pia'/syl . opposite the table, reading.
Pi'etty soon i,ny Avife came into the dining room, took the potatoes and placed
•"heiii further on, tlie table—about two
feet. She had no more than returned to
tlie kitchen, when I heitrd soinething fall
to the floor. On looking around tliere
Was the bag of potatoes laying on the
floor. There were "no children about
the house nor, nothing apparently to
thrOAV them off. Tliere .Avas plenty of
rooiu for them to have caught upon the
table—but they didn't.
A, few nights ago, after the children
had all gone up stairs and retired and
everything Avas as still as death, my Avife
and self Avere sitting by the centre table
reading, wlien all at once Ave heard a
loose stream of water pouring from sonie-
Avhere, and it sounded like it AA'as up
stairs. We hallooed and asked the children who Avas that pouring water up
there. By that time they Avere all out of
bed, coming down stairs. They said that
it AA'as none of them, and that it sounded
like it AA'as down stairs. It Avent like you
Avere pouring a stream as large around as
your leg into a barrel about half full of
■■.water. Finally, after we quieted the
:■.children and .they.went back.to bed,.the
Avaterpouriiig started up again—and this,
time it seemed to be in the parlor. .We
looked that night, and we looked next

morning, and avc haA'e not been able to
find out Avhere that Avater came from, nor
Avhere it Avent to yet.
Night after night you can hear somebody walking up stairs and down stairs
with an old slip-shod pair of shoes on.
We Avill venture the assertion, that Avithin the past three months that A\ralking
has caused us to search the house fifty
times, Avith pistol in hand looking for
burglars. The walking at night is get'r
ting to be so common that our children
don't pay any attention to it.
A few nights ago, after my wife and I
had retired, and everything Avas still, I
Avas laying in bed fanning the mosquitoes
oil' Avith a. newspaper , as it is my custom
at nights. Pretty soon I heard something fall iu the next room like a large
folded newspaper. Pretty soon I heard
one fall in the hallway, then one fell at
our chamber door, then one fell behind
our door. My wife got up and looked
and sure enough there Avere the papers.
In the meantime, avo had ceased to fan
mosquitoes aiid had laid the paper Ave had
over on the bed. When my Avife retired
again she put her right foot over the
newspaper'that I had been using. She
had not been in bed more than tAvo
minutes the second time, when "slap'!
Avent the paper right down by our bed!
My wife raised up in the bed and looked
on the floor, and remarked, "that it Avas*
identically, the same paper Ave had."
And sure enough it Avas, for aa'c got out of
bed, picked the paper up, and carried it
to a lamp that AA'as burning low iu tho
room, and looked at the date. The reason
that  avc are so positiA'e that it Avas the

liave visited several places during our
life that was said to liave been haunted,
but as we 'were an unbeliever in such
things, never saw nor heard anything
until lately that made us believe in
ghosts. AVe tried a long time to make
ourself believe that these voices and

The former company lias readied  Grand Forks and established a 2:.-cent  rate for ten-word messages from Nelson  and announces that when the line gets  through to Greenwood this rate will apply  to Greenwood as well. The Spokane  Northern Company is already in Greenwood and is now building into Grand  Forks as rapidly as possible. It announces  tliat.it will meet every cut wliich the  Canadian Pacific makes in the rates, so  the prospect is good for a cheap telegraph  service from "Nelson to Boundary points.
