 IT LOOKS NOW MORE LIKE WAR  Orange Free Sttvte "Will Join Transvaal.  London, September 2iS.���The decision  of the volksraad of tho Orange Free  Sttite to .join with the Transvaal in the  event of hostilities, although fully ex-  peeted, is the leading news today aud  will naturally stiffen the Boers independent attitude. The raad's resolution has  made the brotherhood of arms between  the TransAraal and the Orange Free .State,  of which hitherto there avjis only a strong  probability, an absolute certainty and  the British will htive to lace the situation.  The volksriuid's resolution was as follows: "The raad, having read paragraph  2 of the president's speech and the official  documents, lias had tlie correspondence  submitted therewith.  j Having regard for the strained state of  affairs   throughout  the  whole   of .South  Africa, which has .arisen in   consequence  of  the  difference between   the   Imperial  goveriiiuent      and       the      government  of     the    Transvaal,    which     threatens  to    load     to    hostilities,    the    calamitous   consequences of   which   to   white  inhabitants     will      be     immeasurable:  being connected with   tho  Transvaal   by  the closest confederacy  and   standing in  the friendliest relations possible with the  imperial government, fearing tluit should  war break out between them  a, hatred  between European races would be  born,  which will arrest and  retard   the   peaceful development in the states and  colonies of Africa, and develop  a-distrust  of  the future, feeling   that  a solemn  duty  rests upon the raad of doing  everything  possible   to   avoid   shedding   of   blood:  Considering that  the Transvaal government, during  its   negotiations  with tho  imperial   government,   which   have extended  over  several  months,  has made  every endeavor to-arrive at a  peaceful  solution of tlie differences raised by aliens  of the -Transvaal and taken up  by  the  imperial   government  as  it  own  cause,  which endeavors htive unfortunately had  only this result, that British troops'were  concentrated on the border of the Trans-  " vaal aud are still being strengthened.  Resolved, that we instruct the government to still use every means to maintain and disburse peace, and in a peaceful milliner contribute towards the solution of existing difficulties, provided it  be deemed not violating the honor  and principles of the Free State and the  Transvaal, and wish the ministry to  make known its opinion that  there exists no cause for Avar,  sand that war against  tlie  Transvaal, as  r *  V,  **     v.       *��  FETDAY MORNING, SEPTEMBER 29, 1899.

London, Septembei' 2S.<���As, the second  battalion of Grenadiers enibarked on a  transport at Gibfaltai? fbr Lpndoii this  o afteihioon, they received a "hurry call'*  ordering them to proceed to tlie Cape, for  Which place they start tPinorroAV. Tlie  secretary of state- for the colonies, Joseph  Oluviiiberlaiu, arrived at the foreign ollice  this afternoon. The cabinet council is  summoned to meet at 10:30 tomorrow  morn ing. The speaker ofthe House of coni-  nioiis, William Court Gully, is returning  to London, and sir Henry Campbell-  Bnnnerman, the Liberal leader in the  House, and Herbert Gladstone, the chief  Liberal whip, will arrive here Monday.  A cable dispatch to the Times from  Capetown says: "The Boers would have  taken the initiative by now but for the  scarcity of water, there not being yet  sufficient. There Avill be great .difficulty  in providing food supplies for people remaining at Johannesburg when hostilities commence.  Several responsible persons Avho have  clung to the belief m an ultimate peaceful settlement, iioav regard Avar as inevitable. The Birmingham Post says two  cars of arms leave Hamburg Friday for  the Transvaal, comprising 50,000 improved. Mausers, 500,000 cartridges and  several mortars for dynamite'charges.  The Daily Chronicle's Capetown correspondent says : " I liave received information of the highest importance as to the  .'^possibility oi'.a peaceful solution of tlie  Transvaal difficulty. Complete estrangement exists between sir Alfred Milner,  Mr. Hofmoyer and the Afrikander leaders. Persons enjoying the confidence of  the Transvaal government, however, arc  convinced that if the Imperial government empowers Mr. Hofmeyer to assure  the Transvaal that a five years' franchise  will secure peace, other questions being  dealt Avith by the reformed republic  gradually or hy arbitration, all existing  differences will disappear.  Wki.i.inc.ton, New Zealand, .September  2S.���The goA'orninent of this colony decided today to equip and send a force of  200 men to the Transvaal. The house  sang tho national anthem Avhen this step  was decided upon.  London, September 2S.���A dispatch to  the Daily Mail from CharlestoAvn says':'  " Commandering is proceeding is proceeding in the Wakkerstroom district, and  probably throughout the Transvaal. Two  thousand burghers are assembled at  Wakkerstroom, Avhich is eight miles from  the Natal border and eleven from Laing's  .Neck. Twelve hundred luwe been ordered to Sandispet, fifteen miles A\rest of  the Natal boundary, Avhere they Avill  meet the Orange Free State artillery,  which has been lying low in this neighborhood for a fortnight."  London, September 2S.���Tlie Daily  Chronicle says: "We understand on the  best of authority that the delay attending the Boer reply is due to hopes still  entertained by the Transvaal of a peaceful settlement. The Boers distrust Mr.  Chamberlain; they fear that if tliey make  concessions lie Avill only increase his  demands, therefore they have been trying  to approach lord Salisbury directly.  They trust the premier as much as they  distrust the colonial secretary, and if lord  Salisbury would give a pledge that the  golden bridge was meant seriously they  a void d venture upon ib. We regret to  say thst this last desperate effort has  broken down, since lord Salisbury cannot  go behind Mr. Chamberlain Avithout  creating a cabinet crisis.  It is deplorable, ��� nevertheless, that state  etiquette should be strong enough to obstruct the -path-to peace.    We  hope it is  THE LOYALTY OF THE DOMINION  Canadian Troops for Africa.  Ton onto, September 28.���The latest  reports in military circles is that the  Dominion government has completed all  necessary plans for despatching a Canadian contingent of troops to .South Africa  to co-operate Avith the British forces in  the eA'ent of Avar breaking out with the  Boers. The contingent, it is stated, will  number about 1300 men and Avill consist  of infantry, cavalry and artillery. Colonel  Otter, D. O. C, it is said, Avill command  one contingent and a separate commander  Aviil be appointed for each of the other  three branches.  Halifax, Nova Scotia, Septeniber 2S.  sir Charles Tupper, leader of the Canar  dian parliamentary opposition, speaking  at the Maritime Fair to an audience of  several thousand people, referred to the  present Transvaal crisis. He said that if  Great Britain became involved in Avar,  the Canadian government should send a  regiment of troops to England fully  equipped and place them .'it the disposal  of the imperial government. The statement provoked great enthusiasm. Major  Borden, commander of the Queen's Nova  Scotia Hussars, has offiered the services  of his troops to Joseph Chamberlain,'  secretary of state for the colonies, for  duty in the Tr.ansvaal.

COMBINES HAVE BEEN BENEFICIAL  To Iron, Steel and Tin Workers.  Washington, Septeniber 28.���Theodore Schaffer of Pittsburg, president of  the Amalgamated Association of Iron and  Steel Workers, Avas the first Avitness before the industrial commission today. Ho  said that about 70 per cent of the iron,  steel and tin Avorkers Avere organized.  After 1S92 the iromvorkers suffered a 30  per cent reduction of Avages, the steel  Avorkers 10 per cent and tho tin Avorkers  25 per cent; but since the recent prosperity began the Avages have been almost  leveled up by advances. The trade Avas  now more prosperous than it had eA'er  been, but the Avages A\-ere not quite as  high as in 1S02. The Avorkers in iron,  steel and tin Avere not getting the advantage under the sliding scale of the recent  increase iii prices. This AA'as due to the  fact that mills Avere filling contracts  made some months ago, and in some eases  a year ago.  Many of the mills A\rere non-union, OA\r-  ing to personal difficulties between employers and employed, rather than to  direct hostility of the employer toward  organized labor or the union scale. Mr.  Schaffer said his association never called  upon state boards of arbitration in cases  of 'strikes. The incorporation, of labor  organizations Avould be advantageous.  The obstacle to incorporation at present  was that the Avorkers Avere not educated  up to and prepared for it. He Avas opposed to compulsory arbitration. He  felt that the A\rorkers could not get  justice from state or government.boards.'  This opinion awis based upon" the interpretation phaced by the courts upon laAvs  passed in the interest of labor.  He protested against the employment  of women in mills, declaring it to be injurious morally aud physically. He also  expressed the opinion that the sanitary  conditions in the mills Avere not good. He  explained the campaign against Sunday  Avork, Jind said much progress had been  made in the steel mills,! tin mills nnd  finishing mills. He f.-wored a restriction  of emigration. "The Huns, Polanders,  Russians and Italians Avere the mosb  objectionable.  ..Asked about trusts, Mr. Schaffer said '  he had much i-especb for them. He Avould  not call them "trusts." Their effect thus  far had been beneficial to the iron, steel,  and tin Avorkers.

A  wide-open town means that the unwary  .shall be plucked by men wlio are too  worthless to make a living by legitimate  methods.    Nickkl-in-tiie-pSLOT machines that-pay  their owners twenty and thirty, and forty  .dollars, a day are one of the results of a  wide-open town. They are merely me-  _ehanieal_devices-to-rob-people-who are  willing to bestow their patronage on the  saloons and cigar stands in which they  are operated. A square gambler will  give heaily an even break to, those who  patronize him ; but the man who takes  one chance in nine of losing a nickel is no  better than a thief.  If gambling is to be allowed in Nelson,  let it be of the square kind. Better pass  a by-law 'authorizing a license to be issiied  to anyone who will maintain a strictly  on the square gambling house than allow  things to be rim as they are atpresent.  Turku are resorts on Baker- .street  where men are robbed systematically, in  poker games and with niekle-in-the-slot  .machines. The police know the location  of these resorts, yet no effort is made to  suppress them. The chief of police  imagines that all the crime committed in  Nelson is directly the result of the enforcement of the eight-hour law.  Oi\rc honest laboring man and his family is worth more to a town than a dozen  tin-horn gamblers and sure-thing fakirs.  Hudson's Bay Stores  West Baker Street.     Telephone 13.

Not only those who follow fads,  those who are subject to superstitions,  those who suffer fancied ailments, and  those who are healed by faith, but .all the  rest of tlie world, even the most matter-  of-fact men and Avomen, owe their progress or their degradation, aud the main  portion of their joys and sorrows, to their  imaginative faculty., The ideal moulds  us all.  The best of life is its illusions.    Tf we  could only see what is to be seen, if our  love and desire had no food but facts, if  the rainbows of the ideal did not always  hover over the dull  actuality, no soldier  would enlist, no man would labor a lifetime to la3r up a competence, no mother  could" endure to  rear  her children,   no  lover would be enamored of his mistress'  face; indeed, the race would sink in the  despair  of   drudgery,  and  the lamp  of  human joy would be extinguished.  ,    The ideal is the best part of our work.  No sermon is so good as the one that escaped  the   preacher  in   his  study.    No  painting  is  so  fine   as  the   one   whose  evanescent colors the artist could never  catch upon   his   canvass,   though   they  swung as ghosts of clouds in the sky of  his mind.    Every great musical composition  is  but a  compromise between the  ravishing sounds that flood tho compos-  ' er's  soul  and the stubborn instruments  that*fret under the harness of metal and  wood and   string.     The   sweetest, - the  grandest thing in our life, is the illusion  -which hangs constantly before us, which  we never can seize, and which, as avc die.  Ave still look toward and sigh for, trusting that in another world Ave can roach it.  In taking an inventory of our age avo  should    reckon     our   dreams,   and   the  dreamers of th^m, as our best possession;  for they are tho sureties of the future.  What the age to come Avill be is determined by Avhat this age dreams.    The institutions of today are the fruit of the  aspirations of yesterday." The ebullient  writers of the days of the French revolution  did  not  put forth   their  brilliant  theories in vain, nor AArere those theories  quenched  by the violence of their time  nor  smothered  by  the  age of  reaction  that followed ; but now a hundred years  afterward the civilized world has quietly  moved up, attempting to occupy, by institutional    and   governmental    reality,  Avhat AA'as onee deemed  the cloudland of  "liberty, equality and fraternity."    liad  the young Galilean not gone about doing  -good;"had���Hc"iVdt"spok"en~those parables  and apothegms  that idealize fraternity,  altruism and   sanctity of   human   life,  there would be no vast churchy beilevo-  leuces, no missions, no   democracy,  no  christian civilization.   ���  Every optimist belongs to the assets of  the race; every pessimist is a dead loss.  '; All honor to those who in siveat and pain  of Jabot' build the walls of our eiviliza-  rion; but let us not forget those who  sing songs to them as they toil; for where  thei'Ois no song, labor is cursed.    "Where  there is no vision  the poople   perish.."  Orpheus built the walls of Thebes witli  ���the music of his lute, it is said ; and it is  I true oertaiuly that ho   great work of  society has over risen in glory aiid majes-  I ty  .except   the   poet atitl   the   prophet  |'brought down fire from heaven to warm  i the hearts of the workers.  He Resented tlie Imputation.  If one may judge from, the number of  j stories appearing in English papers, the  j faculty for making "Irish bulls" is growing in that country. At a recent  temperance gathering the chairman  thought it desirable to reply to an  attack, recently made upon him in  the local press. "My opponent," said;  he, "calls rne an ascetic. 1 hurl the  accusation back iu his teeth. I have  been a total abstainer from my birth."  A still more humorous lapsus lingtue was  that of the London vestryman avIio, in  referring to the financial condition of tlie  baths in his district, described them as  "a*millstone hanging around the necks  of the ratepayers like a Avhite elephant."  The Prince Rebuked Him.  They are telling on the other side of  the water the-following story concerning  the prince of Wales and a Aveal thy American who AA'as much to the fore at Oowes.  The prince is fond of telling stories,  some of them, alas! no longer new, and  being aAva.ro of this fact the transatlantic  visitor considered that it would be a good  method of winning the good will of the  arbiter of English society to show a warm  appreciation of the royal anecdotes.  The prince, says the Washington Post,  wlio is no fool, was quick to detect this,  .and determined to avail himself of the  first opportunity to show .that he understood the little game. The occasion soon  arrived. Tho prince was telling a story,  and happened to pause before he reached  the point, Avlioreupon the millionaire, in  his anxiety to please, exclaimed, with a  hearty, though not altogether natural  laugh, "Sir, that story just hit me."  "Yes," slowly replied the prince. "I  thought it had missed fire."  Will Not  Take Office Again.  The Loudon correspondent of the  News-Advertiser says he understands  that Mr. Turner has promised his business partners not to take office again in  a British Columbia government, but to  confine his attention strictly to business.  AVe have no information whatever upon  the subject beyond Avhat the correspondent saj^s, but every one knows that Mr.  Turner has given his attention to public  affairs at the expense of his business.  At  a  time Avhen the  large  commercial  concern which he had built up needed his  closest personal supervision because of  the rapidly changing conditions of the  province, Mr. Turner AAras devoting his  best energies to public business. While  avo should greatly regret if Mr. Turner  has reached the conclusion referred to,  avc feel that no one Avould have any right  to complain.  Wasted Effort.  Stratford Deacon.  According to the Conservative press  the speech of George E. Foster in replying to sir Richard CartAvright at Toronto  Avas " the effort of his life." Strange that  a Conservative leader should haA'e to  make the effort of his life to ansAver a  speech which the Conservative press said  had nothing in it.  The Way to Popularity.  OtUiwa Journal.  Toronto Conservative papers are talking of "the popularity Mr. Whitney gains  every time he appears before an audience."  If Mr. Whitney Avants popularity which  FULL LINE OF  will win at the polls, let him get up iu  the legislature to talk and vote against  free raihvay subsidies and general coi*-  poratc aggression upon municipal interests.
