 /  THE VASTNESS OF THE EMPIRE  Is a Source of Strength.  London, .September 27.���India's contribution of reinforcements to Natal is another illustration of the truth of the saying that the vastness of the empire is a  source of strength. Not only does India  lend troops to .South Africa, but she gives  valuable experience in the tactics of  guerilla "warfare. Lessons painfully  learnt .amid tho hills and glens of tlie  northwest frontier in 1.S97 may possibly,  in this year of grace, bo applied with  much advantage antl in tlie economy of  both life and treasure on tho uplands of  the Transvaal.  If war ensues, then may it truthfully,  be said never has a campaign been entered upon in a better spirit. Many a  defeat has been suffered from a foolish  contempt of tho enemy. The liners are  not despised; indeed, the sentiment they  inspire is in danger of going to the opposite extreme. The reputation for marksmanship gained by them in 1.SSI has not  faded by lapse of time; the intervening  years have magnified it, for they have  obliterated from the public mind tlie  diminutiveness of the British force, and  the fact tliat the fatal.mistake was made,  as it has been made both before and  since, of playing into the enemy's hands.  Our tactics were all in favor of the Boer  sharpshooters, and dead against masses  of disciplined troops.  But if tlie Boer shouts straight, the  Afridi shoots deadlier, and for pure personal courage the . tribesman' is the  superior of the Dopper. The Boer is  hampered by no transport; no more is  the Afridi. The Boer.moves rapidly over  . the ground; the Afridi descends on the'  rearguard from hill and ravine, like an  avalanche. The Boer for tho most part  is a volunteer; tlie Afridi is rather, more  .wanting in discipline. A Transvaal campaign would resemble an Indian frontier  expedition, with this notable difference,  the enemy would be 'civilized, aud not  barbarian.  And this question of civilization is a  decided point in favor of the British  army. Thomas Atkins Avill sleep sounder  at night on the veldt than ever he did on  the Pathan hillside. There will be no  risk of an enemy armed with ugly three-  foot knives rushing iu between pickets,  cutting tent-ropes, aud sticking the entangled men like pigs through the canvas  in the chill darkness before dawn. Sniping at nights will bo rare, even if ic is  ever indulged in. And if disaster should  ensue, there need not bo that particular  care for the .wounded which encumbers  ' the fighting line in all frontier actions,  aiid increases the casualty list so enormously. '  ' One great lesson Thomas Atkins learned  on thcludiau frontier was hot to "bunch."  The smaller'the target the legs tne number of hits. The 1st Gordon Highlanders  -are only known in England for the assault of Dargai ;* in Anglo-Indian military  circles they are better known for the actions they fought during the retirement  down tho Bara valley. They had then  ���mastered the great principle of guerilla  -'warfare���reach man to fight for himself.  Their losses were light compared with  the regiments who had not gaiucd this  . knowledge. The Gordon Highlanders  were not the only batallion "to master  the lesson, but I mention them as an  example.  A regiment does not at once master  tho art of scattering���of sharp-shooting  each man for himself. Their whole education in barracks has taught them to  cling together.  It will have been noticed that the  troops at Ladysmith have recently been  practised in guerilla tactics. The general  commanding in Natal is sir Penn Symons,  -K.-C.-B.,-who���was���in���command���of-the  first division of the Tirah Expeditionary  force, and who had previously commanded mounted infantry in the desultory fighting in the jungles of Upper  Burma. The lessons which general Symons learned iu the east will now be  taught to the troops under his command,  and he is the better able to adapt* them  to South Africa, since he took part in the  Zulu war, being then a regimental officer  iu the ill-fitted 24tli.

Agujnaldo has issued a statement saying  tlio warlike activity of the Americans  litis prevented the concentration of the  prisoners as intended hut that tliey  would bo delivered up. The Tagals of  the island of Mindanao have expressed  their readiness to accept American sovereignty in exchange for protection  against the harassing Moros. A native  officer has offered major general Otis-  1000 Maccabebe tribesmen to fight the  Tagals of Laguna de Bay district.  Victorian Transcontinental Railway Scheme.  Special to the Tribune.  Victoria, September 27.���A public  meeting tonight, mayor Redfern presiding, declared unanimously iu favor of  the citizens committee's scheme for connection with three trans-contiutental  railways by means of a ferry from  Sydney to Point Roberts and by railway  thenee to Chilliwack, to be built and  operated by the co-operation of the Dominion, the province and Victoria city.  The scheme, however, is yet in embryo,  as the -committee neglected to supply any  assurance of its financial praetibility.  The citizens, however, realized tliat it  would be a good thing for the territory  to be secured and seemed ..willing to  ���undertake a large part of the burden,  which it is intended that they shall bear.  Spanish Prisoners m the Philippines.  Manila, September 27.���The American  authorities have declined the request of  general Jaranullo, the Spanish officer who  is settling Spain's military affairs in the  Philippine Islands, to send a vessel under  the Spanish flag to collect the Spanish  prisoners at the Insurgent ports, as stipulated by the Filipinos, on the ground that  the ports are closed, that such a step,  therefore, will be unlawful aud because  they declined  to accept the Philippine  TRANSVAAL AFFAIRS UNCHANGED  Kruger's Reply Expected.  London, September 27.���The Transvaal  situation remains uchanged though a  feeling of gloom has deepened. Cablegrams from Pretoria and Capetown show  that the general impression prevails there  that the Boers will not recede from their  position and that the feeling of unrest at  Pretoria has been intensified. Despatches  today announce that the Transvaal government has begun to appoint officers to  go to the front incase of hostilities. The  executive council of the Transvaal had a.  prolonged sitting yesterday aud has been  in constant telegraphic communication  with the Orange Free State. No decision,  it is now said, regarding the attitude of  the Free State has yet been reached.  The Transvaal's reply to Chamberlain's  dispatch will be drafted today and submitted to the raad iu secret session. The  mem bers appear convinced that Great  Britain is determined on Avar. Being  anxious not to force Great Britain's hand  the Boers will not take any definite steps  until the draft of their reply is considered, but notice lias been issued to the  Burghers to be in readiness for command-  eriug, Avhich "will commence shortly. The  Orange Free State raad continues in  secret session.  A telegram from Johannesburg says an  American -named Blake is raising an  American corpspli 500 men for the Boers.  On.uhe.Gapo side, despatches show great  .military activity in the direction of tho  frontier. The camp at Dundee now consists of two regiments of infantry, a  hussar regiment, two field batteries, one  mountain battery and- a detachment*- r.f  engineers. Tlie King's Royal Rifles are  now encamped at Ladysmith and the  Fifth Lancers arc ' arriving there. An  armored train left Capetown at midnight'  for Ladysmith. This train is looped for  rifles and machine gunsand is capable of  carrying 120 men. The Bechuanaland  bprder is closely patrolled day aud night.  It is reported that the Boer agents  liave made large purchases of grain at  Durban. The war office lias ordered tho  whole transport and supply for the army  corps to prepare to proceed to the Cape.  This is a very important order and means  the early despatch of an army corps-  Men of twenty-five companies are being  medically examined at Aldershot today.  In spite of these warlike preparations  South African circles still believe that  there will be no war, and that the Boers  will filially concede the British demands.  LOST BOTH JFOOT  AND  CASE  An Overdue Merchantman.  Vancouver, September 27.���Sir Henri  and lady Joly de Lotbiniere loft for the  east by today's Imperial Limited. They  will proceed as far as Revelstoke, thence  south through the Kootenay country,  visiting Rossland and Nelson, thence proceeding east over the Crow's Nest Pass  railway, and on to Winnipeg.  By this afternoon's Imperial Limited  the mortal remains of the late Emile La-  fontaine, C. ]_., of Ottawa, are being conveyed homeward for interment. The deceased was the assistant chief engineer of  the public works department.  T. Robinson of the Dominion Fisheries  office has returned from prosjjectmg up  the Thompson river, Shuswap lake and  Sicamous in company with W. W. Stumbles of the Marine aud Fisheries department, Ottawa. The object of the trip  was to inspect various proposed sites for  the location of a new salmon hatchery.  Several spawning grounds were also inspected with a view to the collection of  spawn in future. There are serious dififi-"  culties to be met with in this respect.  The arrival at Victoria has to be noted  of the British ship Lady Isabella, captain  Mc'Kinley. The Isabella is 136 days out  from Cardiff, Wales. She heard nothing  of the overdue ship Drumlanrig, now 131  days out from Montevideo, five days less  than the Isabella took to come  from       England. Shipping       men:  are iioav -getting anxious for, the  tardy vessel which" is bringing a full  cargo of general merchandise to Vancouver and Victoria. She put into Monte-5  A'ideo dismasted and Avas repaired at a  cost' of ,$12,500. As the passage from  Montevideo is usually made iu about 90"  days' the ship is now abovt 40 days  overdue.  A commercial traveler named Fleish-.  manu, Avho sued the C. P. R. for $20,000  because of the loss of oue of his feet at  Cassels, N. W. T., lost his case today. The  "jury found that the accident Avas not  caused by any act of commission or  omission on'the part of the company Or  its servants. y .        -   -  RAILWAY   AND    STEAMBOAT   NOTES.   Is Not Driving-A way-Capital.   B. Mansfield, Avho formerly Avas consulting engineer for the Excelsior Gold  Mines, Limited ��� the French com-  pany operating tho Joker mine���has returned to Nelson from Europe. He is  now representing a Loudon syndicate  Avith many thousands of dollars capital  Avhich it is intended to invest in gold-  copper properties in British Columbia.  Mr. Mansfield says that tho confidence in  London mining circles in British Columbia mines has been steadily increasing.  The nonsense wliich had been published  in some of the niining revieAVsand papers  printed in London, about the eight-hour  legislation need not be regarded as the  view of London mining men. It AA'as a  well-known fact in London that the  eight-hour day in mines Avas bound to  eome, as in Australia and NeAV Zealand.  Some people in the old country thought  that miners1 wages ought to eolne down,  but they did not realize the expense of  living in tliis province. Ia his opinion,  wages Avould, AA'ith prices, fall as the  country was further developed.  American Prisoners Well Cared For.  Manila, .September 27.���Two Englishmen Avho have arrived here from Tarlae  report that the Americans are treated  more like guests than prisoners. They  are fed on the best that tlie country  affords and everything is done to gain  tlieir favor. A Filipino paper says that  on the occasion of a recent fete at Vit-  toria in celebration of the mythical Fili-  piuo victory, the American prisoners  there Avere given the freedom of the camp  and fiA-e pesos each, Avith Avhich to celebrate the victory. The Englishmen also  say the Filipinos have offered all the  Americans commissions in the army, and  that three of them accepted, but this is  not believed.        ....  , Four carloads of copper matte were  earned, out on the^ steamer Nelson last,  night. Two,cars of the matte,came from  the Hall Mines smelter and the other two  from tlie Canadian Pacific smelter at  Trail. The Avhole is consigned to New  York.  Four of Nelson's wholesale houses made'  up a carload shipment of fruit, butter,  eggs, and hams and bacons to Boundary  points yesterday. The shipping firms  Avere the Parsons Produce Company, F. R.  Stewart <fc Co., J. Y. Griffin & Co., and  the Manitoba Produce Company.  W. P. Tierney & Co. announce that  they Avill commence work upon their uoav  contract on the Columbia & Kootenay  branch within the next tAvo days. It  will furnish employment for at least  75 men.  C. W. West & Go. yesterday received  tAvo cars of anthracite coal from Anthracite, Alberta.   Imported Men Will Not Work.  Five"nien_arme"d_Avith~lieAv rifles arrived  in Sandon yesterday. Upon enquiry it  Avas found that they had been engaged  by the OAvners of the Payne mine as  miners, their travelling expenses having  been paid from Montreal to Sandon by  McQuaig, the manager of the Payne mine.  They had been told that the rifles Avere  necessary for the killing of bears and  deer. The men had�� entered into contracts for Avork similar to those upon  Avhich J. K. Mitchell engaged the Sudbury  miners. They Avere enlightened tit Sandon as to the law of this province Avhich  makes A'oidable contracts for labor entered into outside of the province, and it  is more than probable that the Payne  mine Avill receive but little value in labor  return   for   the   transportation and  ROAD TAX WILL BE COLLECTED  The Traves Case Again.  At the meeting of the city council yesterday afternoon tho bylaw levying a  road tax of two dollars per head upon all  the male residents between the ages of 21  and 50 years was reconsidered and finally  -passed and adopted. The question as to  the collection of tho tax Avas then taken  ���up. Alderman Hillyer expressed the'  opinion that it Avould pay the city to  haA'e a special collector appointed, so that  the tax Avould reach those Avho paid no  other taxes at all, Avhom the council-specially desired to get at. This opinion  was shared by alderman McKillop, and  on motion R. J. Steele was appointed  collector.  .'; With respect to the litigation betAveen  the city and E. C. Traves over the breach  of the city fire limits bylaAV Avhich .Avill  come to triahat the approaching assize it  ���was decided to entrust the city's case to  Messrs. Tupper, Peters & Potts. -On  motion of alderman Fletcher, seconded  by alderman-Kirkpatrick, the city clerk  Avas requested to instruct the city solicitor  to prepare the brief iu the case and forward it to the Victoria laAvyers. The  opinion of the council Avas that as Messrs.  Tupper, Peters & Potts had but recently  revised the bylaAv-which has been attacked  they Avould be.the best persons to defend  their own Avork in the courts.  ���As the city scales are noAV in shape the  question came up as to what arrangements should be made for the collection  -.of fees and the services of a weigh clerk.  It Avas finally decided to refer the matter  to the mayor Avith poAve'rto act.  The city clerk called the attention of  the council to the circumstance that under the municipal act the.council had no  pbAA'er to enforce the measurement of  Avood, or to regulate the lighting of bon-  "fires in the backyards, of the city. He  suggested that the council should go into  the municipal act and see what amendments are desired Avith a view to securing their introduction at the next session  of the legislature. This suggestion Avill  probably be acted upon. *���',���.  *. .With respect to the complaint of Dr.  Hall about seAvage accumulating in his"  basement on Baker street, the sanitary  inspector Avas instructed to notify those  Avho are responsible for it that if the inii-  ��� sauce is not abated at once proceedings Avill be taken against them.  The city engineer AA'as instructed to  have the Avater main on Josephine street  betAveen Victoria,and Baker streets taken  up, and that a four-inch pipe be laid Ioav  enough so as to prevent freezing.  The question of the Hall Mines' water  supply from the electric light station Avas  taken up, and the public Avorks committee Avas entrusted Avith arranging the  rate which the company is to pay for its  future supply of Avater, as Avell as for the  water which it has used this yeai",  panics of the Sixteenth infantry, but on  account of the need of all tho available  men at the front, his force has been reduced to 70 men. They now remain near  tho big church where they aro quartered,  being too few in numbers, to attempt to  patrol the town. The armed uniformed  parties of insurgents recently disembarked during the night collected money  for the insurrection and preached revolt.  MINING AROUND NEW DENVER  Working Forces Increased.  Nkav Denver, September 27."���It is expected that senator Warner Miller aud  other members of the syndicate operating  through Percy Dickenson of Slocan City  will be in the Slocan tomorroAv. This  syndicate has iioav under bond about  twelve or fourteen claims at the head of  Ten-mile creek, totaling in value $00,000,  or thereabouts. The properties aie to be  Avorked during tho winter, and to aid in  this it is the intention to construct a  sleigh road up Ten-mile, connecting Avith  the Enterprise Avagon road. This Avill be  used during the season. Two representatives of the company are now examining  properties in this vicinity, Avith a view to  bonding.  J. Moore of Kaslo, government inspector of roads and trails, Avas 'here yesterday examining, into the needs of the  vicinity. The Silverton road, upon Avhich  money Avas spent -some Aveeks ago, was  found in good shape. On the Carpenter  creek road the government has allotted  $500 to put it in shape for the Avinter,  Avhile next spring the sum of $6000 Avill  be expended in cribbing and general permanent improvements. J. Moore states  that the proposed road up Silver mountain Avill depend upon the shoAving made  by the properties. If the government is  convinced of the need of assistance they  Avill not be at all backAvard in lending  aid."-' '.'���-.   :*" .;"'.  There has been a decided increase in  travel this Aveek and the hotels all report  an improvement. Several inquiries for  men Avere made here this Aveek.

King has been tendered and accepted theposition of ore buyer for the  big smelter trust of the United States.  His district covers the states of Idaho  .and Washington, with headquarters at  Spokane. He leaves for the south next  month.  Eight men are iioav employed on the  Fidelity-Bosun.  THE STATUTE IS DISREGARDED  By Nelson License Commissioners.  The license commissioners for the Nelson license district yesterday granted the  application of Mrs. Alice Perry for an hotel license at FiA'e-mile Point. The  application Avas granted in the face of  the license inspector's statement that he  did not consider a license necessary, that  ho did not consider the applicant a fit  and proper person, and that he believed  that the husband of the applicant was  interested in the license, a condition  Avhich is prohibited in set terms by the  Liquor Licenso Act. There Avas also the  further evidence before the commissioners that R. F. Perry, the husband of the  applicant, had been fined $75 tho previous Aveek for disposing of liquor Avithout a license.  Just how tho commissioners got around  the point that R. F. Perry litis an interest iu the license Avhich they granted, it  is difficult to see. The evidence of Perry  Avas taken. It was in effect that he had y  virtually no means of support, that he  AA'as,a judgment debtor, and that he had  nothing Avhich the holders of the judgments could realize upoiVyupoJi... The  premises for '.-which the license Avas applied for Avere owned by his AA'ife, and if  the license Avere granted he Avas to be t  manager of the hotel business for his  wife.  The license inspector called the attention of the commissioners to the thirty-  fourth section of the license act, Avhich  reads: "No license shall be granted to  any married Avonian unless she be the  OAvner or0tenant in her mvn ..'right of the  premises for AA'hich a license is' sought,  and she shall satisfy the commissioners -  that the business to be carried ou is for  her OAvn use and benefit irrespective of  her husband."  In the face of. this Dr. Arthur said : " I��.  think some accommodation is requiredat  that, point. Whether or not these lire  the proper people to have the license, I  am going to make a motion tliat ythisjy  license be granted when the papers are in  proper order." y   ..   .   "'  P. E. Wilson said: "1  second the motion for! this reason : We have been very  lenient in the granting of licenses in this I  district, but we will warn the applicants y  that if there is any transgression" agamsty -  the license act in any respect the license y  will be cancelled forthwith."    y _       .

Tho fears  entertained for the .Scotsman are enhanced by the known presence of ice in  unusual quantities both outside ami inside tho straits, and hy the great storms  reported on the Newfoundland coast.  The only fallible feature is the fact that,  the .Scotsman had, by reason of the strike,  a green crew in the fire room, but this it;  hardly sufficient to account for the delay,  as the Scotsman, Avhile not up to her  scheduled time avIiuii pasn-d by the Dominion on the 21st, was uut so far behind  but that she should have been reported  at one of the gulf ports long ago.

The report of the ways and  means committee stated after considering  tho linancial questions of the congress  from all .standpoints it would recommend  that the i>er capita tax for the ensuing  year be eight cents per annum, payable  quarterly, for affiliated bodies and for  bodies holding charters from the congress  the per capita tax be twenty cents per  annum, payable quarterly.  The election of officers resulted as follows: president, Ralph Smith, M.P.P.,  Nanaimo; vice president, John A.Allen,  Hamilton; secretary-treasurer, G. A.

Cold well, Victoi*ia;  delegate to American Federation'of Labor, D.- A. Carey, Toronto. It was decided to meet next year in^Ottawa.  Tlio following* resolution was adopted :  "Whereas in the Dominion political campaign of IS99 sir Wilfrid Lauricr-pledged  liis government to be guided by the advice of-western Liberals-in respect to  legislating against Chinese immigration ;  and whereas western members of parliament, both Conservative and Liberal  alike, are unanimous in tlieir expression  of opinion that unrestricted immigration  of Orientals must inevitably result in  permanent and incalculable injury to the  labor and business interests of the country ; and whereas Mr. GT'R. Maxwell, M.  P., of Vancouver, introduced in the session of 1S97 and 1S9S iu the Dominion  parliament legislation to increase the  head tax on Chinese coming .into Canada  from $50 to $500, but without avail, as  the same, instead of being passed to a  final issue, has been held in abeyance; and  the reasons submitted therefore are extremely unsatisfactory to this body;  therefore, be it resolved this congress expresses its hearty endorsation of the  aforesaid legislation, and demands that  ithc government of the day s2njiJort_the_  rsamertlreTeby redeeming tlieir ante-election pledges in regard to this, question  solemnly made to and accepted in good  [faith by the people of western Canada.  lite' it further resolved, that in the opinion  |of this congress, Chinese iinniigration is  lone of suiHicieut importance to justify  jiinifced and detefiuined effort on the part  iof organised labor throughout tlie entire  rooniinion to defeat any party or politie-  jian engaged in federal elections wlio op-  jposes this much needed and desired law  Ifroili being placed on the statute book of  lOauada."  A resolution Was also adopted expfess-  nng sympathy With the London street car  J strikers, and calling for financial as-  Isistsuieo.        ^ _^___  Stirtrey That Fixes a Boundary Line.  By October 1st, the work of perman-  lenfcly   establishing   tho   Montana-Idaho  [.boundary line, from   the   international  [boundary- Hue south to the Bitter Root  [mountains,   will   be   completed   by the  JUinted States geological survey.   .For a  [number of years this line has been in dispute and various mining properties situated in the Yank mining district have  been alternately claimed by Montana and  Idaho.   An attempt' was made some four  years ago to liave the line established by  a survey commission appointed for the  purpose  by both states,  but for   some  reason tlie task was after a time abandoned and the old disputes remained unsettled*   About two years ago the work  of locating the. boundary line was begun  by the United States geological survey,  the work then being in charge of professor Perkins.    The line, which is the BOth  meridian   west   from   Washington,  was  located by triangulation from the astronomical post established, near -the., court-_  house at Spokane. . The preliminary work  occupied a part of 1S97 and 1S!)S aud was  completed  about n year ago.    The work  of ���permanently establishing the line by  monuments was commenced early in June  of the present year, being conducted by  professor Reoburn  of the United .States  geological  survey.     Running   from   the  Canada boundary  south   to   the Bitter  Root mountains, the  line extends along  the  meridian   for  about   seventy.miles..  Might miles and a. lisi.IT south of the Canada line it intersects the Buckhorn group  of mines: eighteen miles farther south it  passes barely ten feet east ofthe depot  at Leoniii,  thereby  placing   that  town  within the limits of Idaho.    Twelve miles  south of Leonia it crosses Callahan creek,  one mile west of the B. & B. mine, which  locates that property in Montana.    The  line,    throughout   its  entire   le*ngth,   is  desired of sill timber and underbrush for  a  space  of six feet.   It is   marked by  eighty-six .'government"monuments, consisting of iron posts four inches in diameter and six feet long, flanged  on the  lower end .and set sibout four feet in the  ground.    The posts are set at a maximum  distance  of one mile apart; each post is  capped with brass and each cap stamped  with the distance in miles aud decimals  of a'mile froni the''Canada line.    In addition to these there are also four granite  monolithic monuments, one sit each end  of the line, and one at the intersection of  the line witn the Great Northern and  Northern Psicific railroads. The whole  work when completed will cost in the  neighborhood of $9000 and Avill forever  settle all controversies regarding the  state boundary line.  Charged With Stealing at Fernie.  Philip Lsifond (or Dufond) was brought  to Nelson yesterday from Fernie. He  had been charged before William Fernie,  J.P., with stealing a $20 note from  Rubiartl Oliver at Fernie on September  20th and hsul been committed for trial.  The depositions state that the prisoner  had been having a drink with Oliver, and  the latter, feeling the prisoners hand in  his pocket, suspected something was  wrong, and having examined his pocket  found that a note book containing a $20  bill hsul disappeared. He notified constable A. McLeod, who arrested the prisoner. The accused denied the charge  and said he had but $-1 and some small  change in his pocket. On being searched,  however, a $20 bill was found in one of  his socks.    This avsis identified by Oliver,  FULL LINE OF  as it had a hole in it. The missing pocket book wsis also found lying on the  track where the prisoner had parted  company with Oliver. The prisoner has  elected to take a speedy "'trial, the date of  same to be fixed when a Avitness he requires can arrive from Cosil Creek.  The Tremont Hotel  Wool Carpets Art Squares!
