 WAITING FOR BOERS TO BEGIN  Hostilities on the Border.  London, October 7.���Judging from the  reports from Soutli Africa, a state of  war practically exists between Great  Britain and the Transvaal. It seems almost paradoxical in conjunction with the  fact that the British diplomatic agent,  Mr. Conynghau Greene, still remains at  Pretoria and the further fact that tho  negotiations continue.  A reason for the paradox probably lies  in au understanding of the curious relations between the two governments. As  has already been cabled, Great Britain is  not likely to make a formal declaration  of war against what she considers a dependant nation, the process being a mere  issue of orders to tlio�� military forces to  restore the state of sovereignty which she  alleges originally existed. We're England  similarly at loggerheads witli a power  recognized by her as her equal, pride and  precedent would, some time ago, have  compelled her to break off diplomatic  relations.  Ib is tliis legend of suzerainty that enables her to palaver without loss of .self  respect and, at the same time, to run a  good chance of placing tlie onus of tlie  beginning of hostilities upon the Boers,  or failing in that, to delay hostilities until she has in the field a sufficient force to  overturn the Transvaal. Tliis is the only  ground upon which it is possible to reconcile the government' snttorances with  its passive reception of palpably  hostile  SUNDAY MORNING, OCTOBER 8,  1899.

Thus war appears to be the only pos  sible outcome. Tlie Boers are determined  to precipitate it, and hostilities are only  a question of days. If England is allowed to take her own time, then two  months may'elapse before the first blow  is struck. Needless to say, all signs indicate that the Boers will not tamely Avait  for the arrival of a British army corps.  Although the diplomatic negotiations  are well nigh forgotten in the present  exciting developments, they are in a  peculiar stage and deserve recapitulation.  After the last cabinet council it'; was.  officially sta.ted that the Boers had not  replied to the latest despatch, and that  the foreign office,'while deciding to consider the question, expected an answer  from the Boers. Tlie papers duly reported the arrival of tlie reply, but none came.

The reserves now blocked out will keep  the mill constantly supplied for over five  years.     Meanwhile energetic exploration  continues.     Erom the lirst the sinews of  war for the undertaking have been furnished by captain  De  La  Mar,  likewise  the energy and courage to  strive  anew.  The future of not only the Mercnr region  but the Pacific Coast  will  be benefitted  by his success, which often seemed doubtful. .  Shipments for September.  The best refutation of the statement  that the niining industry is in a fair way  of being permanently crippled through  the enforcement of the eight-hour law���  a statement that has been repeatedly  made by the organs of the mine - managers' associations ��� is furnished by  the returns of the customs offices  at Rossland, Nelson and Kaslo.  During the month of September  the exports of ore and matte from the  port of Rossland were valued at $380,000,  from the port of Nelson $175,000, and  from the port of Kaslo $75,000; or a total  of $030,000. The bulk of this was in the  shape of matte and bullion, which goes  to-.show that the output of the mines of  Kootenay is smelted in Kootenay. If  the mines and smelters continue to export $030,000 a month, there is not much  likelihood of anyone in Kootenay going  either hungry or broke.   .  .  A Slocan Bear Story.  , JCaslo itootoimian.

New York, October 0.���There was a  spanking breeze from the northwest and  a heavy swell from tho eastward when  the yacht Columbia, under mainsail and-  jib, flitted nwny from a point oil' Southwest ,Spit at 0.20 o'clock today and, with  sheets eased a trifle, headed for the  Sandy Hook lightship ab a twelve-knot  clip.  Besides manager-owner Isolin and Mrs.  Iselih there were on boiird Herbert Leed,  captain Nat HerresholT, who, when the  yacht passed the Associated Press boat,  was lying on the weather side of the deck,  watching the sky through a-pair of green  goggles, captain Woodbury Kane, Newbury Thorne and Hugh Kelly, the last  named representing the Royal Ulster  Yacht Club. ..Captain Barr held the  wheel to windward, one of the crew  assisting on the lee side. The rest of the  crew were distributed along the weathcr  rail. Columbia was carrying the same  mainsail as on Thursday.  Shamrock made an early start from  Sandy Hook. She passed out by the  point of the hook at 9.05, carrying the  same sail as Columbia, arriving off the  lightship a few minutes before 1 o'clock.  Captains Ben Parker, Hogarth and  Wringe were on the deck. At 10.20  Columbia sent up her Avorking topsail in.  stops, the wind., being strong enough at  that time to warrant the setting of that  sail; but even while they were hoisting  it, the wind lightened off considerably,  and fifteen minutes later the No. 2,club  topsail was bent on. Shamrock also bent  ou a No. 2 club topsail, and both yachts  set tlieir sails at almost the same time.  At 10.30 the tug which was to drop the  outer .mark started to log off the course  at fifteen miles to leeward. Four minutes later down came Shamrock's club  topsail, and in just nine minutes her  biggest; jack-yarder was mastheaded and  shook out. Columbia kept her No. 2 topsail, Captain Barr probably hoping that  it would be more desirableiu ths wind-  cent interest per annum, payable quarterly till 1003> when the rate will fall to  ^A^pei:kcent.^JfedempMon-mav be effecj-edL  at par after 1923. The interest on this  line of stock determines its value, and as  the rate paid has been highoi: than  Could be obtained from other lines of  ijivestmen t equally safe and convenient  tliey have been selling above par. A  change in the rate of interest on money  affects the relative advantage of interesfc-  beariiig securities. With the advances  in the rate of intef est the consols witli a  fixed rate became relatively less desirable.  Investors look for a higher rate of interest, and to-secure it they must .obtain  the consols at a relatively lower price.  As the returns yielded, by tlie eon-  sols are definite there is no other  basis         for          determining their  value. But it is a mistake to rely on  similar calculations in estimating the  value of stocks that represent an interest  in any enterprise. That should be estimated according to the value of tho  goods, machinery and other things actually possessed. Dividends resulting  from temporary advantages are no basis  for valuation.    SHORT BITS OF NELSON NEWS.  Frederick Flaniiigau, who was arrested  on Friday upon a charge of assault, was  remanded for eight days by mayor  Neelands yesterday. If the prosecution  is ready before that date the preliminary  hearing will be proceeded with.  The city clerk has issued the accounts  for sewer rentals for Baker and Vernon  street property. The rental charges for  this section of the city .amount to $450.  A laborer named Blossom had a narrow escape yesterday when digging a  trench to connect the sewer on Baker  street with a building in course of erection. The sides of the trench caved in,  burying him almost to the neck. Fully  an hour elapsed before he. was dug. out.  He suffered no serious' injury.

Finally, at  11:41, Shamrock  kept square off on  the  course, breaking  out  her spinnaker,  Columbia   following  suit.    For   some  minutes   the   head   of  Shamrock's spinnaker  would  not break  out, while  its  foot  was tiuiling  in   the  water.    Her balloon jib-topsail liad been  set a few minutes,  and  both  sails  were  pulling   splendidly. # .Sometimes   Columbia's bows showed out ahead and some-,  time^ Shamrock's, looking  at them from  a point on the  starboard  beam  of both  boats.    Columbia   finally   pulled   out   a  length to the good, and  in  ten  minutes  she gained another length.    At 12:15 she  was fully half a dozen lengths in the lead.  The    yachts    had   been    sailing   down  along the Jersey beach and  within three  miles of it.    They were so far  off their  course that it soon became evident  they  must jibe to fetch  the  outer mark.    As  soon as Hogarth saw  the  mark at 12.52  he took in Shamrock's  spinnaker, jibbed  her and trimmed down  the balloon jib  topsail in just five minutes.    Before  Columbia's crew had realized what he was  up to, the  green  boat, with  everything  drawing  splendidly^ was  lifting up towards the American  boat.    In  just  six  minutes she had passed her.  Then captain  Barr and his crew woke up, took  in  the  spinnaker, jibbed Columbia smartly but  were slow in trimming down the balloon  sheet.    Shamrock was then  well  out to  windward of Columbia.    Hogarth set the  spinnaker for five  minutes,  which  gave  her an additional lead of several lengths.  Columbia did not set hers until'1:20. and  took it in a few minutes later.    The outer  mark was now in  plain  sight and  both  yachts were approaching it with booms  spread off to the starboard.    At  1:33, in  came  Shamrock's   balloon    jib    topsail,  Columbia's two .-minutes  later and  both  yachts jibbed at 1.36.20.  Columbia had gained so much during  the past 15 minutes that it was evident  there was going to be some close work at  the outer mark. Then Shamrock's  crew., trimmed down sheets as the  yachts luffed around the mark.  Columbia's  bowsprit was right over her:  ^jteatl:yi'taXlih'^|^  'secOUds^^leafny?  Both yachts were riiiiiiing parallel to the  line,,neither daring' to keep off till the  Signal, They were about the centre of  the line at gun fire, (.nick as a flash,  skipper Hogarth put his helm down,  shot Shamrock across Columbia's wake  aiid, as lie straightened her up again, her  bowsprit Overlapped Oohimbia's weather  quarter. He was able to accomplish this  by reason of the Irish boat having better  headway than "Columbia.  Captain Barr held, his course .almost"  over to the lightship lit the weather end  of the line before keeping off, thus trying to force Hogarth out of tlie commanding position '���which ' he liad so.  cleverly obtained, but in vain._ .Shamrock not only held her position* but  began to overhaul the other and blanket  her. The official, time of the nice was:  Columbia, 11:21:02; Shamrock, 11:21:10,  As in one of the previous races, Hogarth did not set his balloon jib-topsail,  being better prepared with No, 2 jib-  topsail for the luffing match wliich he  felt sure to come. It came with a vengeance, for Columbia, in order to prevent  the green boat from blanketing her,  was obliged to hi If fully half a  dozen     points     out    of     her     course.  As it was, in five minutes* her mainsail  was blanketed by Shamrock, the only  sail drawing on Columbia being the  balloon jib top sail for a few minutes^. So  far out of their courses were they luffing,  that all the excursion fleet, 011 the west  side of the course, had to get out of tlio  way at full speed. Ten minutes after  the start, Shamrock ��� liad the weather  berth, Columbia being a.couple ol* lougtlis  under her lee bow. Five minutes, later,  Shamrock took in her.small staysail and  and set a balloon staysail.  In spite of all she. could do, Shamrock  was not* able this, time to .outfoob Columbia sufficiently to pass clear ahead of  y:^Aft����^;"\v|is^2^  wJitfe:;Co;h^^  p.' s%Ohd-S,. ������'"tM'i-'.-V^v^  :fi.!v^K'ofr:ih!5i^  .'fa*W!'i/uh%i��^  "y .';��^i.n/hfc^  ' se'eouo^''i@Ugenr^theiT-*iiia ���  Tlieh ijacjh, ��� -"tacketl ytpur'' tihies ^ia.:..Jthree..;  ruitUiies} andl ^.'hai!, ^IJy JJiri ro<|I^-|5f||M g ;&i^-v  ed^fooub^tyvv'iicte V_-3i|^i��_/_$y|Tiij_|^  was ^rbytvihg;;h'ghitiir%ii ��� the;- "Mni|*,iy'.iVj&V.  ���the' ioug- ieasteily-: swells^::^oth^ihg^. th^  boats;, epusid^aijly; :wh;e.ii;:von 'tlie'���.p^rt;  tack, makiiig/thein splash ���:a'_'__.gfto"|;'-"<3._t:*il',.';:  Whicli: d^d-enect'^^thetr JieadAvfayp Afe-2:Mj  Coliiiilbia..sll.lit tack With Shainroek andy:  went off siiore breeise hviiitiug on they  port tack, When, at .5;l(.i4|l S^luwiiroek;  tacked to ppi% aiid <3ohimbia ten. iiiinutes  1 a tTJr "to^WrboW  opposite -tafik..., It was a question of by  how Much Shamrock could pass the  Columbia's how, Golnwibia, however,,  tacked before the other reached her,:  it 'being evident tluit Columbia  Was now to leeward and Shami'oek  in lead.

Slowly they uindo their way to  windwart,! during the next half liotvr,  each being in the lead at tiiiles for Several minutes.  They .split tacks at 3:10, when Cohiinbia went off shore again looking lor the  wind, and ��wheu next they came together  it was 4:10. Frojil some positions to lea-  ward it looked as if Shamrock would  cross Colunibia's bow by quite a  large margin, Cohnubia being on starboard tack and having right of way.  However, Shamrock was forced about liy  Columbia, which yacht, when Shamrock  had gone about, was on the hitter's  weather beam about a length away.  Some idea of the close sailing of the  two yachts on the same tack may be  gathered from the fact that froni -1:15 to  4:31 when the race was declared off, the  shadow of Shamrock's club topsail remained almost in one spot on the Ico side  of Columbia's mainsail. If today's race  had been continued to the finish, some  five miles away, it would be exceedingly  hard to predict the winner. The handling  of both boats was excellent, bub  the balance was probably in favor of  Shamrock's skipper and crew.  . Had the race in reality ended when  the event' was declared off, .Shamrock  would have: won by seven-seconds actual  time and by 12 seconds corrected time,  supposing of course .Columbia allowed  her 5 seconds for 25 miles, instead of 0.31  seconds for 30 miles.  .

The chaplain and several died of disease.  ���   Auginaldo, in a proclamation announcing the release of the American prisoners  and authorizing tho  Filipino  soldiers  in  northern   provinces  to  1 etui 11   to  their  homes, says: "In America there is a great  party  that   insists  on   the  government  recognizing    our    independence.      That  party will, in all probability, compel the  United States to fulfill the promise made  to us in good faith,  though  not  put in  writing.

He calls the world to witness -tliat the Filipinos have not broken  the alliance made with the Americans  through admiral Dewey and the United  Sbates consuls at Hongkong and Singapore.   .  The people, on seeing the American  prisoners,!cried out: "We do not war  against the Unibed .Sbatesl We only  defend our independence against the  Imperialists; the sons of that mighty  nation are our fiiends and brethren!"

DAny tlniTlOK   Wbeklv JSDmow    FrBST Ykak, No. 2.17   SeVbnth Ykak, No. 37  Tins Conservative party of tlieprovince  of'British Columbia, in convention assembled, lias placed itself on record on the  eight-hour law. Was the action ono of  principle or one of expediency? Tun  Tribune is inclined to believe that it was  one of expediency.    The men who control  the Conservative party in this province  are not noted for their love of Jiien .who  labor for a day's wage in or out of mines.  On the contrary, they are known to bo  controlled by the interests that are  antagonistic to labor and labor ��� organizations. A political party that is forced to  adopt a principlecis not likely to make  that principle effective, once they gain  office. It would be so with the Conser-  vatiAre party, were that party to gain  control of the provincial government.  Adoj^ting the principle of the eight-hour  law is mere political buncombe.".- Were,  the statute books���filled with eight-hour  laws, with the penalty clauses omitted, of  what- value would the laws bo to the  laboring classes?       , ;  Oni" of the predecessors of the Semlin  government passed a Ia\v prohibiting the  employment of Chinese .underground in  mines. The law was all right in principle;  but how did it work ? Ask I). M. Eberts,  late attorney-general iu the Turner  government? The law interfered with  the right of contract; it. deprived free  citizens, like the Dunsmuirs, of the right  to hire whom they pleased ? It was legislation passed in tlie interest of the  laboring classes, at their request. It was  passed by a government that was not  friendly to the men who secured its passage, and the result was that the law  was a nullity. It was a mere husk, ft  contained no penalty clause. It could bo  disregarded with impunity. Kvery opponent of the eight-hour ltvw is now  shrieking himself hoaj'se-in-favor-of���tiio-  principle of the eight-hour law; but  they all want the penalty clause repealed. What a job lot of political tricksters  and time-servers they are, to be sure.  Tile law as it stands means something ;  ���repeal the penalty clause and the law  would hot mean anything.  I*r IpS said that the price of  beef . has  been advanced, or "sV'il] be advancec,1,fruni  one to two cents a pound.   This should  cause the closing down of every work on  which   beef-eating   men.   tire, employed.  What -right has .Pat Burns, or any other  cattle king, to arbitrarily raise tlio price  of a coMunodity used by mine managers ?  It is not fair play,     It is an outrage.    It  is as gross an interference with tlie rights  of individuals as is. that damnable piece  of legislation, the eight-hour law.    What  a pity the affairs of this world were not  so arranged that men could be prevented  from taking  advantage  of their  opportunities.   Then the mine managers would  not be allowed to work a property tliat  was stocked for ten tinies its real Value,  and mine ownership would be confined to  nien -who paid actual cash for their holdings.    Everything would   be  on  a  dead  square basis.   :_   The majority of the people of this province will not bo fooled by specious promises, even though the promises are inade  by the leaders of the political party with  whom they affiliate. The majority of the  people know that the leader.-") of tho Conservative party in this province are not  acting on the square when they declare  themselves to be in favor of the eight-hour  law. The leaders of the Conservative  party in British Columbia.arc pronounced  opponents of any legislation that effectually shortens the hours that men can be  compelled to work underground in metalliferous mines, or that prevents the employment of Chinese in the coal mines.  Coxskrvativks like .1. Boderiek  Bobertson, and AV. A. Macdonald, and  T. Mayne Daly and David Mark Carley  can all be depended on to vote the  straight Conservative ticket ; but were  either the one or the other of those politicians elected to the legislature,, could  they be depended on to vote against the  repeal of the penalty clause of the eight-  hour law?

"There is no pleasure in stolen money,"
is tlie testimony of Charles O. Somers,
tlio noted express robber, who has just
voluntarily .surrendered to the Mississippi
authorities, aiid has asked to be allowed
to serve,but his term in the penitentiary.
.Somers has travelled widely in the last
five years, has visited Europe and lived
extravagantly there ; but his crime has
weighed on him all the time and made
liis money valueless ; and tlio Tact that
tliat he was an escaped convict, liable to
be arrested at any .moment, has, like the
death's head tit the Persian i'casb, always
stared at him and destroyed all   pleasure.
Tlie story of Soulier's crime is full of
incident antl would point a dozen morals.
No one would "make a stronger missionary
against crime than he, for no one can
better tell how "it biteth like an adder."
Somers was only 20 when he came to
Louisiana and Mississippi as a Pinkerton
detective to assist the railroads and express companies in hunting down the
gang of train robbers wlio, under the
leadersjiip of the famous Ben Bunch, had
made three or four big hauls near Duck
Hill,,Miss., and  Buckalunna, Beulen, La.,
without any danger of immediate detection. It was, he said, a momentary
temptation which he could not resist; he
took the money and walked out, and as
he was a good detective and know just
what detectives would do, he knew how
to escape and got away without the
slightest difficulty. There is every reason
to believe Somers' story that he yielded to a sudden temptation. His former
life had been blameless. There is nothing to show that he had conceived apian
of robbing. It Avas a simple case, where
he had $(>0,000 before him, saw a chance
to get away with if;, and yielded to it.
H(_ opened the safe, got the money and
escaped. .        «
Well planned as Somers'escape was, he
was not destined to enjoy his liberty
long. A few months afterwards he was
captured, brought back..to Meridian and
tried, convicted and sentenced to five
years' imprisonment at hard labor in
the penitentiary. Somers felt the disgrace very keenly as he was a man of
good family. He was confined in the
penitentiary in Jackson, but ho lived in
mental terror lest he should be sent to
one of the state convict farms, then under contract labor, and where the life
was very hard aud severe. As he subsequently wrote to governor McLaurin, no
man of the slightest.intelligence need remain in the Mississippi penitentiary who
does not care to stay there. Fearing
that he would fall into the hands of the
lie.slid down a small rope and escaped.
He was well provided with money, for he
had "salted away" the $00,000 he had
stolen, and he made at once for the Pacific Coast, intending to go to China or
Somers found a serious difficulty iu his
way. He was too well known, for as a
detective he had met 'hundreds  of  per^
and   at   other   places.      The   campaigu    SOiis, and the Pinkertpn men were all oti
a  lookout, for  their  former   companion.
One'"[of .them   recognizetT him   irr San
ngainst the robbers was very hot, and  m

brought back to Mississippi and again
placed in the penitentiary. He served
sixteen months this time, but in April,
1aS!)4, he escaped and has been a free man
until he voluntarily surrendered himself
this week.
convict  contractors, Somers  planned to
escape.    He  had  been  in  prison only a
few   months "when   he left   it.     Ho had
stained   his   convict   clothes  so   that "it
would not give him away" and altered it
so that it could easily pass muster.    This
he wore under tho  ordinary prison garb.
He   waited   until   a   green   guard   was
placed in  charge  and stationed at   the
northeast tower of the penitentiary.    He
persuaded   the  guard  that  the  warden
wanted him and that ho was a "trusty,"
and when the man went to  the warden,
Somers'    second    escape    was   simple
enough.  -.No bribed one  of  the  guards,
French by name.  The two came together
to  New   Orleans,    whore   .Somers    paid
French, and they separated,    fie took the
steamer to Europe, where, under the name
of Nelson, he  has  resided  most  of  the
time since.    lie had plenty of money; he
was fortunate and increased the $00,000,
and enjoyed every  luxury,  but  his  life
abroad wjis none tlie less tx  bore  to  him
and full  of regrets.   The money taken
from the express company was paid back,
but even this did not satisfy Somers' conscience or quiet his fears.     Last year he
returned from Europe, spent some  time
in Canada, and  finally  Avandcred  off'''to'
the Klondike  Avhere  he  Avent into  the
mining business, and Avas again successful.
But all this time he Avas suffering mental torture, and neA'er once enjoyed petice.
He Avas constantly in fear that he would
"be arrested, sent back to  the  Mississippi
penitentiary and be punished as a tAA'ice
escaped criminal.    He Avas so avoII known
that he Avas always on  the  edge  of dis-.
coArery, and liis arrest .at San Francisco
convinced him that he would be identified
by any detective avIio saw him. Naturally
of au  extremely  neiwous  temperament,
this constant dread preyed upon his mind
and eA'en affected his health.
In short, Somers had made up his mind
to surrender aud serve out his term. He
had for more than tAvo years thought of.
surrender, but the idea of the striped
suit and going bitck to the hardships of
penitentiary life from the comforts he
Avas enjoying dissuaded him. What
seemed to have finally turned the scale
Avas the fact that he AAras only thirty-
three years of age. If ho did not surrender, he Avould have to endure the
present agony—his constant dread of
capture—for the, remainder of. his" life,
thirty years or'more:    If, he surrendered,-
he Avould haA'e, at the Avorst iess than
four years to servo. This finally decided him. On his return from the Klondike ho Avent to Now York, from Avhich
city ho wrote to Governor McLauren, on
September 10th, informing him that lio
inlendcd to surrender, explaining his
crime and his two escapes from tho penitentiary and asking clemency. He loft
soon after for Jackson, stopped over to
Memphis on September 15th, where lie
telegraphed the governor that lie would
reach .Jackson the next day. This he
did, and ho is now in the penitentiary
a waiting tho decision of the governor as
to what should be done with him.
Somers made good the amount he took
from the express company, and also deposited Avith governor McLaureii'.s private secretary $'500 to. repay the state of
Mississippi the amount it had expended
in recapturing him. Ho litis settled up
the financial part of his 'crime, i\m\ expresses a willingness to suffer the penalty
and punishment Avhich his crime calls
for—but ho asks clemency.
Somers is prepossessing iii manners and
appearance. He has boon successful and
made his way in the world, and lie lias
probably seen wild life in tho last few
years during Avhich he has boon free—an
escaped convict. His case lias aroused
much sympathy. There can bo no doubt
as to liis repentance, .although he has-
made few professions on this score, and
has said that ho surrendered because the
danger of arrest, continually overhanging him, made his' life less free than in

To dispose of an entire car of high-class iron and
brass beds in a western mining town in less than two
months is certainly a record to be proud of, and one
seldom equalled in the large eastern cities. 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. We would ask the citizens
of Nelson to continue in showing their appreciation of
our efforts to give them the opportunity of enjoying*
the luxurious furnishings of an eastern home in the
midst of the Rockies.

For tiie next two or three Aveeks the  city's electric light service may be more  or less unsatisfactory. Tliis will be occasioned by the shifting of the dynamos,  preparatory to tlie installation of the  new machinery, anil ib is likely tliat, until the new six-foot wheel is called into  use, tlie lights in the upper portion  of the city may be cut off. The now  wheel was supposed to h'-ivebeen shipped  from San Francisco on Tuesday last, in  wliich event it should reach Nelson about  the end of the present week. The secondhand dynamo, which the council purchased, has been overhauled at liossland  and is reported to be in good condition,  but it will he useless until tho wheel is in  position to drive it.  No More Work Will Be Undertaken.  "With the exception of completing a  number of sewers that have been decided upon, there will be no more public  work undertaken by the corporation this  year. Tliere is work enough in hand  now to overrun both the waterworks  and electric-light debenture accounts.  With respect to the sewer debenture account the finance committee reported an  available balance of $3000 when the  Kootenay street sower was commenced,  and this, with other small pieces of sewer  which have yet to be completed, will  probably overrun this account as well.  At present there is something like 3500  eet of sewer to be laid.  Chief justice Tuck of St. John, N.

It is needness to add  that the addresses will be on politics, not  agriculture.  The collections of the port of Nelson  for the first week of the current month  have averaged $1000 per day.
