 VOLKSRAAD INJECRET SESSION  Sympathy For the Boers.  Br.oi-iM contain, September 21.���The  volksraad met today Avith a full attendance. President M. Steyn read a carefully prepared speech. After welcoming  the burghers lie expressed regret that  the relations between the Transvaal,  Great Britain and the Uitlanders had  become strained. Members ho said, were  aware of the meeting of sir Alfred Milner  and president Kruger at Bloemfontain,  when president Kruger made proposals  which, although refused by the British  high commissioner, avoi-o unanimously  considered throughout the Orange Free  State as exceediugly fair.  Proceeding to review tho negotiations,  president .Steyn said the TransA-aal had  been deceived by the British diplomatic  agent at Pretoria, Conyngliam Greene,  and he practically accused the Imperial  government of a breach of faith, lie  Avas disinclined to advise the Transvaal  government Avith 'respect to the latest  British demands. The present critical  state of affairs could not be a, matter of  indilTerenco to the Transvaal, and he had  therefore convened tho A-olksraad to decide Avhat attitude should bo taken.  "There is nothing," declared the president, " that warrants Avar or an attack  on the Transvaal. Such differences can  be soh'ccl by arbitration. Jt would be an  insult to religion and civilization."  In conclusion president Steyn said he  Avould take this opportunity to ...lay certain grant laws before the AroIksraad,  praying God to give the members strength  to pass resolutions not only conducive to  peace and prosperity, but also in the interest of their beloved state. Immediately  after tho speech president .Steyn .asked  the volksraad to go into secret session  . wliich was agreed to unanimously.  Londox, September 21.���While the  precise reason of the secret session of the  raad of the Orange Free .State is not yet  known here, president Steyn's speech at  the opening of the session is regarded as  an almost infallible indication of tlie  .attitude Avhich the Free State Avill take.  Commenting from this point of view, the  Loudon morning papers are all impressed  Avith the added gravity of tho situation.  .London, .September 21.���The Morning  Post contained a despatch from Pieter-  lnarit/.burg, Natal, dated September 10,  saying: "I have never known the situation to be graver.

TRADE   AND   COMMERCE.  fe*&_M^*&l-f$^  ^.{ipruuda'M^  .^���*ay.s?61 to ^Orange; #i*e]��feSiate>:othe^*s;  A business that is being centered in  Nelson is that of .'issayers' supplies. W.  F. Tcefeel started in a few years ago to  furnish local assayers Avith crucibles,  scorifiers, acids, and chemically pure lead,  and now tho firm furnishes complete  assay outfits, from the most expensive  balances down, on <a day's notice. The  only competitor the firm has in this  province is a house in Vancouver, but  VaneouA'er is not on the ground, and  Nelson is. Yesterday manager Campbell sold a complete outfit to the Granite  Gold Mines, Limited.  Shipments Avere made yesterday by  Nelson manufacturers and Avholosale  dealers to the folloAving points: Rossland, Robson, Greenwood, Phoenix, Grand  Forks, Nakusp, Duncan City, Ymir, Erie,  Slocan City, Silverton, Sandon, Kaslo,  AinsAvorth, Creston and Moyie. The  shipments included eggs, canned goods,  sugar, cigars, Avhisky, beer, aerated  waters, hams, coal oil, boots and shoes,  sheeting, blankets, ore cars, and printed  stationery.  Manager Sims of the Kootenay Cigar  Manufacturing Company reports that his  company is building up a good  trade in the ��� Boundary country. The  cigars made by the company are the  equal of any made in the province.  In making mention of the manufacturing concerns of Nelson, the smaller ones  should not be overlooked. About a year  ago the Kootenay Coffee Company  started business, and today it has quite  an extensive local trade as dealers iu  roast aud ground coffees put up in  attractive packages.  A.

HAD BETTER BEGIN A CAMPAIGN  Of Hard Work in Their Mines.  The campaign of education by the Nelson  District  Mine  Owners' Association,  through  their  Nelson  organ  under the  disguise of a real estate  edition of that  sheet, is not likely to result in any great  number of petitions being signed by mine  Workers for the repeal of the eight-hour  I.-iav.    The real   estate men do  not take  kindly to the scheme ; they do  not want  to  appear as  mere  catspaws   for mine  OAvners  or   anybody  else.     If there   is  activity in Nelson real estate, they argue  that it Avill be brought  about by a de-  maud created by men AA'ho AArork in mines  and shops, and not by men Avho Avork as  mine  managers.    More,  the   real  estate  men do not Avant to boom Nelson at present ; they prefer a gradual  groAvth  for  awhile.    The  mine managers   have  the  pull on one or two  real  estate men like  alderman   Beer,  but  they  do not cut a���  wide swath Avith the real estate  dealers  as   a   body.      It   is   Avell   known   that  Beer     is     ambitious     politically,    and  it is also Avell knoAvn  that  he  is  not in  sympathy  Avith  the  eight-hour  laAV  or  any organization that aims to keep AA'ages  above the   level   prevailing in  Eastern  Canada.    Ho  avus  a  mine  manager  for  awhile, but he is not uoav engaged in the  mining business to any great extent. The  mine managers, now that they can workmen by contract, Avill probably begin a  campaign of Avork instead of a campaign  of education, and the result AA'ill befar  more beneficial to both the country and  themselves.

Capetown,   September  21.���Sir   John  Gordon Sprigg, leader of the opposition  in tho Cape house of assembly, and former  premier and treasurer of Cape Colony, in  the course of an inteiwiew  today,  said:  "I JiaA-e no doubt that a  portion  of tho  population of the colony Avould be actively  an ti-British   in  the  eA-ent  of war Avith  the Transvaal.    I do not anticipate any  rising, but some of the  young  and   impulsive Afrikanders Avould probably sIioav  their   sympathy   bjr   "joining    the  Boer  forces.      In     my   judgment    the    proceedings     today's     meeting     of     the  Afrikander    members     of     the     Cape  parliament  Avere  most   injudicious.    No  mention   Avas   made  of   any  sympathy  Avith those avIio avouUI suffer Avhile fighting for the British side.    It is impossible  that  those avIio aro doing their best to  uphold British authority should conceive  anything in the nature of a  retirement  from the position adopted by the British  government.    Any such weakness Avould  be     fatal     to     the     future    maintenance   of   British   authority  in   Africa.  Referring to the  speech  of sir  William  Vernon Harcourt,  last  evening  in  New  Treadgare, sir John said he considered it  ill advised and injudicious, especially at  the present juncture.    In his opinion  sir  William's assertion  that  Great  Britain  could not claim  general sovereignty in  the Transvaal, Avhen she had only partial  suzerainty,  Avould   do  more  than  anything else to eueourage dissatisfaction.

"Vanderbilt Was an Exemplary Citizen.  The death of Cornelius Vanderbilt, the  head of the wealthiest family in America,  gives the public an opportunity to learn  something of a man who in real life Avas  little known to the masses of the people.  Instead of being the patron of the turf,  the promoter of yacht races, or the host  of million-dollar balls, this man of money  did his daily work, enjoyed his own lire-  side, had a I'ew friends, and contributed  quietly to charitable objects. In his case  it seems to have been a good name as  avcII as riches. It is not now possible,  says a New York Avriter, to recall any  other man of great Avealth, certainly none  Avhose name ty pi lies some of the momentous commercial undertakings of the  time, who has been privileged to receive  nothing but kindly words, nothing but  the tributes of respect and esteem, OA-en  from those avIio profess to detest society  as it is now constituted, and to believe  that no man has a right to bo richer than  any other man. Mr. Vanderbilt shared  with Miss Helen GJould an unusual esteem  from that clement of tho community  which is presumed to be arrayed against  the other element that possesses wealth.  In all of the severe criticisms that haAre  been made by that part of the press tliat  denounces plutocracy no mention has  been made of Cornelius Vanderbilt, and  it has often been said that if very rich  men used their riches as he did and conducted themselves in their public and  private relations as Avas always his custom, much of the discontent and envy  that sometimes dangerously prevail  would disappear. 0  HUDSON'S BAY  COMPANY.  ���. & ��Zz <S"_ c��S.<^  _^g��-��������?*��-: S?

Lioiifcoii.-infc-ttoloiiel Walker, a retired  ollicor of the Black W:iteli, lias eont;H-  lui(,<-<! to a rcconfc issue of .lie London  Times the following intercsMng letter 11ji���  on Llie Lactics pursued by the Boors:  I [living  recently spent a considera.ble  time   in   Pretoria,   where  I   became acquainted with many of the Boer military  hierarchy, and so  far gained tlieir confi  deuce that I was made cogni/.aut of some  of  their   plans   of   operations,   it   nitty  therefore not be an inopportune moment,  when powder is smelt in the air, to weigh  the situation and ponder  over the probable initial acts of  the militant drama,  should'hostilitics ensue.    The  Transvaal  has  <-i  military  organization   somewhat  crude and  patriarchal,  but'it   possesses  in  degree an  intelligence and secret service   department,   its   field   artillery   is  decidedly good,  officered   by   European  Dutch army officers, and tlio potentiality  of all three arms is not to be despised.  The different alternatives of action have  been weighed and considered, and the advantage of the   inner   line   which   they  possess* is known and appreciated ;   but  they  have elected to make Natal their  chief   line   of   operations,   partly   from  necessity, partly from choice, their former   triumphs   being  in   that   direction.  Details   o��- numbers   htive"   been   given  elsewhere,-but there  seems  _o be a discrepancy as regards the number of.their,  mounted    infantry,- and   these   arc   all  mounted  with, the exception  of-a  few  defenders' of   Pretoria.     Possibly 35,000  "may bo about their strength, as I was informed that that number of rifles   had  been issued after the Jameson   raid, and  as these presumably are  in  the hands of  individuals, either inside  or  outside tlie  republic, we  may  conclude  on   this hypothesis that tit  present the numbers of  their mounted fighting unit are npproxi-  mately that quantity of rifles.  Boer tactics tiro unique; one has'to  witness it to credit its feasibility. Their  horses are so trained that when the reins  are thrown over their necks they remain  immovable; and their fighting is based  on this fact, combined with tho dictates  of common sense, and. their empirical yet  successful method of encountering us in  the Gladsfconian war. Each commando  of 100 is tlieir unit; these arc concentrated iu scattered groups in rear of their  outpost line, and on the " Red Cheeks "  being signalled in force they canter away  oxcentrically. endeavoring to encircle as  far as possible the adversary, dismount-  |-in"g"iu���a" fold~of grouiKlireaTsomo coighTof  vantage, the horses never moving, whilst  they skirmish, utilizing all cover, and  concentrating a fire into the brown of the  English, scarcely visible by them. As in  peace so in war, and the Boers have every  confidence in the issue. J laving been  over the battlefields in Natal and ou the  top of Majitba Hill, and having liad talks  with Boors who wore there, it was apparent that these tactics obtained. At  Laing's Nek they galloped up and outflanked us; at Jngogo they formed threo  parts of a circle round the force,, which  only escaped, by a noiseless hight march,  leaving the wounded behind; lit Mijjubti  tlie same tiling oectii'red, andj under cover  of tho concentrating firi?, a small party of  Boers, hardly perceived, crawled up  and  caused the panic.  They do not intend to construct to any  great extent lines of defence for two reasons���the   configuration   of  the country  lends   itself   to   these   being  turned,  as  might easily enough   have  been  done at  fining's  Nek,  and   if   driven   out   tliey  might not have time to reach their horses  and mount, in which case they would be  at   a   greater   disadvantage    than'  dismounted infantry.     They moan to abide  by their time-honored'' system, their  old  tactics wliich succeeded so  well, possessing such mobility, rapid   powers  of  concentration on vulnerable points, as rapid  retreats therefrom if seriously threatened  but   before   this   eventuates  hoping  to  achieve a victory,.and   most certainly indicting great losses, and if not most careful they .vill.     This  offensive action resembles  a man attacked by a swarm of  bees; he wastes his vigor iii driving off a  few   of   the   swarm, doing   them   small  harm, returning to the attack tis soon as  the other bees attract his offensive action  from  another  direction,    This poAver of  rapid   movement incidental to till being  mounted is the crux of tho whole tactical  question,    increasing    materially    their  powers of offence and indirectly, defence.  They .mean, so  they informed nie, to  invade find raid Natal along  the line  of  rail, and if eventually stopped and   com  pelled to retreat, to destroy the line.     If  at the present  moment.,all  the infantry  and cavalry that can  be spared are sent  to Laing's Nek, unless  they entrenched  themselves and have an available supply-  of water and provisions  until  the  main  army arrives, tliey will be surrounded as  before, and may, most of them, find their  way to Pretoria, as  prisoners instead of  conquerors.     Moreover, this  celerity  of  movement confers on  the Boers  further  advantages.    Each carries  on  his  horse  100 rounds  of ammunition  and ration.-"-,  biltong, or dried beef, for four days, the  horses feeding on the veldt.    They say  they can cover  200  miles  in that time;  assuming  that, say, 20,000 mounted men  can  cover one-half  the  distance, or say  100 miles, what risks do we not run about  communications?    Our cavalry out there  have    been     principally    instructed   in  mounted infantry drill, but as such they  aro at a great disadvantage  compared to  the Boers, who have a weapon of superior  range.    These considerations enhance the  difficulties of our .offense and decrease the  numbers in line of battle, requiring as we  shall to protect about 100 miles  of communications.     I do not mean to be pessimistic;  if we go to war we can and must  defeat   them,  but   we   must   encounter  them''somewhat  in   their .own.'fashion.  We  cannot  mount  all  our men, but we  must have a strong mounted  local force,  accompanied  by artillery and  infantry  well   on  our  flanks, the infantry whenever  a  halt is  made entrenching itself.  These, if the united Boers concentrate on  our  flanks, Avill  retard  them   until the  main body can reinforce.    At all events,  there could .bo no outflanking  and  firing  into 'comparatively immobile masses, los  ing some 40 men for each Boer killed, as  in the former campaign.    The main body  must be considerably extended also, as it  ���will not encounter much  frontal  opposition, with   the reserves  likewise correspondingly  posted,   and,   above   all, the  most drastic measures to  prevent  encircling tactics  are  imperative.    Above all  things tin  adequate force must bo sent  out.    The Boers  say  that  if we employ  less than 80,000 men they are safe.  If we  gain one big victory at  first  the  bubble  will soon burst, as they arc attached to  their homes ami soon get despondent.   If,  on the other  hand, we sustain  a check,  there are  numbers  of wavering Dutchmen in .South Africa who would throw in  their   lot   with  the enemy.     The forts  round Pretoria are of no  great strength,  but   there   are   some    minor    questions  worth considering.     We must be careful  not to enlist Boers as spies, many of them  speaking English perfectly.    What is  to  become of some '.000 English Transvaal  burghers who  by  law  htive  to  take up  arms   against   us?    If   they   are  to  be  hanged if caught they should be informed  of   the   circumstance.      Finally,  should  measures not be taken to obtain the exit  of   all  the  Uitlanders, many  of   wJjoni  would take up arms on our side?

Although the executive oi" the Mainland board of fire underwriters consented  to the readjustment of insurance rates in  Nelson, it is not likely that the desired  adjustment will be made for some time.  The executive appointed the work of readjusting to Tudor.T. A. Tiedniann of San  I'Yanci.sco, who was in Nelson representing the Scottish Union, and to James S.  Jteed of Portland, representing the Connecticut company. The latter is now in  Grand Forks, and owing to a heavy loss  along the Fraser will be unable to return  to Nelson for sonic time. Mr. Tiedniann  waited in Nelson for a couple of days For  Mr. Heed's return, and now ho will also  return homo. Tliis will mean that the  much coveted readjustment will not be  made until some other arrangement can  be arrived at by the Mainland board of  underwriters at Vancouver.
