Bloismkontein, October 3.���The land-  drost of Boshof telegraphs that the British troops have crossed tlie border from  Kimberley.  London, October 3.���Mr, Montague  White, consul-general for the South  Africau republic in London, told the Associated Press tliis morning that he telegraphed president Kruger yesterday,  urging him to make a personal appeal to  lord Salisbury, dwelling upon the iniquity  of the war and proposing a scheme as a  basis of further negotiations. He said ho  was momentarily expecting to hear that  the Transvaal government Avas sending  an ultimatum, favoring the despatch of  troops, which would be a casus belli; in  tliis event he would be compelled to close  his offices. Mr. White added a curious  statement to the effect that a representative of the largest capitalists of  tiie Rand has called upon him this  morning and .asserted that it was known  in capitalist circles that lord .Salisbury  had determined that there should not be  war, and "liad instructed secretary  Chamberlain to Avire. to South Africa  further assurance that the British desire  to respect tlie complete independence' of  the Transvaal. No com Urination of this  is obtainable in official circles.  Advices from Newcastle, Natal, report  telegraphic communication is interrupted  beyond Charleston, where^ stores have  been looted by natives since the departure of the whites.  London, October 3.���Stories of the  movements of the Boers and British, of  .hurried muster and dispatch of troops on  both sides havo come from other points.  A telegram from Ladysmith, Natal, says  tlio Orange Freo State troops have occupied and closed Bothas pass on the  Free State border. "  ���;���. The latest news from Johannesburg,  .filed there yesterday, indicates that the  ��� last rush of Europeans to leave town has  occurred. They crowded the trains like  sardines, occupying every possible inch  on the cars. '���'..' There is considerable  anxiety with regard to the few who are  behind as communication seems to be  cut off.  'The mining commissioner stated- officially that the proclamation of September  20th relative to the protection of .miners.  ' had been withdrawn and he therefore  . advised all Britishers to leave as soon as  'possible.  'Last Friday's, mail was sent back from  the frontier to Bloemf onteiii.

It is considered  in the nature of a compromise rather  than favoring Vene/.uela.

They pointed out that Great  Britain, up to the time of the intervention of tlio United States, distinctly refused to arbitrate as to any portion of j  the territory east of the Schomberg linej  alleging that its title Avaa unassailable.  Tlie aAvjitrd* coil tinned Mr. Harrison, gives  Point Barinia, Avith a strip of land fifty  miles long to VanezUela, she tixot'ob'y obtaining eontrol, of the ti'voir Orinoco,  TJii'ee thousand s^uarG miles in the interior are also aAVarded to Venezxiela.  Thiis, by a decision in Avhich the British  arbitrators coiicitrred to the position  taken up by Great Britain in 1805 is  shown to be unfounded.  This, howeveiv in noAvise expresses the  full extent of Venezuela's victory. Great  Britain had claimed 80,000 square; miles  of territory Avest of the Schomberg line  and this she AA'as disposed to arbitrate on  in 1S00, Every foot of that section is  now awarded to Venezuela.  Venezuela has gained innch, but Avas  entitled to inucli more, and in the judgment of the joint counsel for Venezuela,  if tlie arbitrators Avere unanimous, it.  must be becauso their failure to agree  would have confirmed Great Britain iii  the possession of even more territory.  To sum up, the aw.ard means that of  00,000 square miles claimed by Venezuela, the latter obtains only 100,  formed partly of marsh land near the  river Baiima, and a portion in the interior, Avhile Great Britain retains all the  forest couutryv   New Westminster Defeats Toronto.

New Denver, October *3.���A. E.  Fauquier, the duly appointed delegate of tho  ���Conservatives, left  hero today to attend  the   convention  of   tho  party  at    New  Westminster.    Last night a  meeting  of  the  followers Avas   held  in  RashdaJl  &  Fauquier's  office, and  instructions Avere  given the delegate to A'ote for  tho introduction   of   Dominion  party   lines  into  proA'incialnolitics.    On   the  Question  of  the  eight-hour laAV, it  Avas   decided  to  leaAre it in abeyance as much as  possible*,  in order to keep the party Arote intact  in  this vicinity.     Though Mr. Fauquier is a  bitter opponent ofthe  law aiid .-miner's'  unions, he will have free  action  to  express    his    opinions     in . the    interests:  of  his   association.      As   now   orgnniz-r  ed,    the    ConerA'atiA'cs   have    as     president    here     W.     Mitchell,     and    II.;  Thompson as secretary.    It is  proposed-  later on to more fully  organize and  get  the association into shape for  action in:  both federal and  provincial  arenas.    In  this, connection, it may  be  stated  that  the affairs of the ConservatiA'o party'will;  haAre to be handled in a tactful  manner  in the Slocan, if the leaders hope to keep  the vote intact.    The  leaders  are all in  sympathy Avith the mine oAAmers, but no  juggling Avith the eight-hour hvw willybe  endorsed by the rank and file, and party  fealty Avill avail nothing if the  rights of  the  mine Avorkers  are trifled .with', no  matter Avhether it be be Liberal or Coh-  servatiS'e-    Sandon's  delegate  has  gone  to the convention Avith'a  decisive  stand  in view.    There will bean eilort made to  embarass premier Semlin,  minister  Cotton, and others Avith respect to the eight-  hour laAV, and there are undoubted signs  that the influence of the  Mine  OAvners'  Association  is  being  used to  this  end.  The Slocan is to be  advanced  as  an illustration  of the direful  effects  of the  laAV.     Also    the    contention   has   been  raised and Avill be advanced.to the leaders  that the. laAV is  not  being enforced, and  that it is  nothing  more nor less  than  class legislation in favor  of the miners'!  unions in detrimenttotheAvell-being of the  ShinLS-rb^ne1'S;3i}_t"Ife^     ^a^c"e"d��th&&;thc*��  'jaiid-i^o^i&y^fe^  . ;fe4rt;a^g]it'j|a:^  ^be.'di'dV'^ei^fe'o^  all" ;HCw^ap"ers-: ��out" -of 'e^lWtenCe. foi'- aix;  . month^.^ndf:-*<b.y^h^ijacterizeyot'gani^.tlyi  hibypifcits; a'"''j|i,@b;;;p^  yare'4i3��i^g,^'A!"t3i^lfe   oi-t^eycdiih^i'y. b%"  ytJicte��action4'' wiltiiot tend ^6.. hold.'tlie  /��� ti"vcr*a;^&V:6te> tO'tli^Cfrh:s;^# Sbaiiij Ci',';  a*nd will intt Cohrt'*iisa^teK at th&ypQlls..

The work of  laying the pipe between the flume and  the Pelton waterwheel is progressing  f.'worably.

Just as long as human nature is  as it is, tliere will be societies and associations and unions. The wise man is the,  one who is .willing to concede his neighbor the same privileges as he himself  eujoj'S.     The   mine maiiagers and  the  Wk believp a majority of the people of  Canada, if they understood the question,  would favor tho establishment of a mint  in Canada; but tho bankers arc opposed to  it, and not long since met in Montreal and  resolved that it Avon Id not be for the best  interests of Canada to mint her oavh gold  and silver coins. The people of Canada  did not go on strike against the banks  for their action ; they simply accepted  the situation. But then the people of  Canada have common sense, and that is  where tliey differ from the men who  manage mines* in some of the districts in  Kootenay.      '  Why do the bank managers of Canada  and: the United States meet in  annual  con ven tion ?   Is it not because  tliey believe that the banking interests can best  be   protected  by "collective action?    If  tho managers of banks are permitted to  form associations for mutual protection,  surely the men Avho Avork underground  in .mines,  whose, only capital is   their  day's pay, should not be deprived of the  right to organize unions, so as to protect  themselves by collective action.  The Tuppers are Dead Politically.  Pielou (Nova Scotia) Advocate.  We have it upon good authority that  sir Hibbert Tupper has notified his party  friends in Pictou county that he cannot accept the nomination recently tendered him. What's the odds? It is  tiresome hearing about the nominations, perfunctory or prospective, of  the political parties Avhom the Halifax  Tory organ flippantly designated " the  tAvo Tuppers." We do not look at it  that either is apt to figure in any nominations at general elections in Nova  Scotia, and that but for themselves they  Avould be very little in evidence at this  day, in "Canada's growing time." This  little game of shuttle-cock, between themselves and an interested few, with their  names is played out. They have liad a  political past, but there is ho political  future looming up.

SAVINGS BANK BRANCH.  CURRENT RATE OK INTERE.ST PAID  THE   FRENCH   IN   CANADA.  Replying to a- recent article in the  Toronto News, tlie Montreal Herald contends tliat tliere is no aggressive  national spirit in the province of Quebec,  and further, " there is no political signi-  cance in the national, wholesome and  creditable pride of raceonrfellow-citizens  of French extraction take every *5j)poiv-  tunityof/proclaiming^" Tli.at" there is  not tho least trace of politics in French-  Canadian racial sentiment."  It is difficult to believe that the Herald  really means what it says. It has been  agreed by nearly every person who had  opportunity to ."nidge���and admitted by  Frenchmen themselves���that the success  of the late Hon. Mr. Mereier Avas due to  tlio fact that his campaign was conducted upon national lines and thatthe keynote of it was the solidarity of the French  race in Canada, with the ultimate  prospect of separation, from the  English-speaking provinces. His ambition was publicy stated to be to establish a now nation on the banks of the St.  Lawrence. From the days of Mereier to  tlie present time those Frenchmen who  appeal to the national sentiment and excite the ambition toestablisha New France  have been able to win their support. Even  the Herald will hardly deny that in voting for the lion. Mr. Laurier's candidates  "in'the last election they were not voting,  * for Liberalism, but for a Frenchman. ,It  was not consideration for the government  of the country that, weighed with thorn,  - but rather tlie fact tliat one of their-own  j-oople might be placed in the chief position of the Dominion  By pursuing a systematic policy they  ���-havo pushed- tho French language into  tlie province of Ontario, so tliat in districts where formerly the French tongue  was never heard,'little else isuiow spoken.

IJut that they arc satisfied with their  present condition and look upon tlieir  colonial relation to England as a finality,  we do not think tho Herald believes.  The most admirable thing in a Fronch-  Cauadian is his loyalty to his religion.

Hinckley Will Fight Extradition.  Itosslaiid Minor. ���  Charles II. Hinckley, who is charged  with stealing $97,000 from the West Side  Bank of New York City, and avIio was  arrested nt Princeton,* Yale district, is  still in the custody ot constable Darragh  in this city. "It.was-learned yesterday  that judge Forin of the .county court, before whom the preliminary proceedings  relating to the extradition of Hinckley  are to be brought, could not be located  at Nelson, and it .was not known when  the,proceedings could be had before him.  This will probably delay the matter for a  couple of clays. - It is understood that  Hinckley will light extradition to the last.  A    novel    point    has   been   raised    in  this connection. This is, as the  crime with which he is charged  was committed at a time when  such offenses wore not extraditable, that  ho cannot be extradited, because the  treaty is not retroactive, and therefore  no action can be taken for crimes committed prior to the ratification of the extradition treaty between Canada and tho  United States. It is within tho range of  probabilities that the case will be appealed to Ottawa before it is finally adjudicated. This will of necessity consume  considerable time. It has been stated  that there was a probability of a  compromise between the officials of  the West Side Dank, who are  here, and Hinckley. The bank officials  were questioned as to this, and they positively denied that any such steps wore  ever contemplated. Their object, they  stated, was to take Hinckley to New  York, so that-lie might bo tried there foiv  the offense charged against him. They  were not here for the purpose of compounding a felony, but in order that a  man whom they declare to be a criminal  may be punished for his offense. The  bank officials are reticent as to their  plans aud as to. the details of how they  learned of the 'whereabouts of Hinckley.  They promise, however, to make thorn  public before their departure for the east.

An important development of the  Transvaal situation is reported on the  best information from Boer sources. Tlie  latest scheme "which may soon be announced at Bloemfontein and Pretoria is  the consolidation of tlie two republics, or,  rather tlie annexation of the Transvaal  to the Orange Free St.ate. It is this  scheme which lias occupied the attention  of the volksraad of the Orange Free  State in mysterious session for the last  four days, ft is advanced on the belief  that it will checkmate the British policy  by enabling the Boers to concede without  any danger Mr. Chamberlnin's demands  in regards to (he suffrage. That is to say,  the foreign elementof the Uitlanders could  not outvote the Boers in the Transvaal  and the Orange Free State, if this proposition does not make for peace it will  postpone war. As the Orange Free  State enjoys a greater degree of inde-  pendancc, it is argued that if a consolidation was effected in the shape'of the  annexation of the Transvaal to the  Orange Free State, all the hitter's freedom and privileges would be enjoyed by  tiie combination. The second part of  the plan is said to bo that president  Kruger of-the Transvaal should-resign in  f* _vor of president Steyn of tho Orange  Free State. It is understood that Kruger is willing to do this, .although he  would decline to give place to commanding-general and vice-president Joubert.  , A Ragrettable Feature.

Yet so  great has been the.demand for these goods, we have  found it necessary to wire for another car, which will  reach Nelson this week.
