 NO  TELEGRAMS  FROM  NATAL  British Reply to Kruger's Ultimatum.  London, October 12.���The following is  the text of the British reply to tlie Boer  ultimatum: Chamberlain to Milner, high  commissioner, sent 10:15 p. m., October  10th, 181)9. Her majesty's government  received with groat regret the peremptory demands of the South African republic, conveyed in your telegram of  October 0th. You will inform the government of tho Soutli African republic,  in reply, that tho conditions demanded  by the government of the South African  republic are such as her majesty's government deem it impossible to discuss.  London, October 12.���A Pretoria dis-  p.ateh, dated October 11th, sent from  Lorenzo Marque/, (as telegraphic communication between the Cape and Natal  is undoubtedly interutpted) says: Mr.  Conyghani Green this afternoon said  good-bye to president Kruger and his  officers in his private capacity. He and  his stall' will leave tomorrow by two  special trains. Martial law was proclaimed at five o'clock this afternoon, and  British residents without permits must  leave the Transvaal within eight days.  Vor.KSitusT, October 11, 3.40 p.m.���(Delayed in transmission)���President Kruger's son and grandson, as well its half  the members of tlie Transvaal legislature,  are now at the front. Men who are arriving here report that the Boers are still  .���Streaming in from different directions and  districts to the Natal frontier, many who  have been refused by the enlisting officers  going on foot.  London, October 13.���The morning  papers tire discussing at some length the  authorship of the documents which have  recently emanated from president  Kruger's*-. government. Dr. Leyds, the  European, representative of the South  African republic, is generally, credited  with the authorship of the ultimatum.  The government has arranged for the safe  conduct of Mr. Greene through the Transvaal and Orango Free State to Natal.  President Kruger is credited with declining to quit Pretoria, deciding that "like a  faithful captain, he Avill remain on the  bridge Avhether the ship rides safely into  the harbor or goes down into the deep."  It.is now definitely known that the  British government sent-.'no' final'proposals to Pretoria. The Transvaal's ultimatum forestalled that intention... So  far as news received thus far shows.':no  shot has been fired.  New YoiMv, October 12.���The  London  correspondent    of    the    Tribune. says:  j'_||0?l|$ir&5^  "'"'''Stli'rQuglip'u^  |Ehe_M"i%o:i.��'l��OW  mm ,. ^  PUBLISHED AT NELSON, BRITISH COLUMBIA.

That is the great, salient' fundamental  fact, which is likely, as it seems to us, to  determine the direction in wliich the overwhelming mass of American sympathy  will bo given.  Just as Great Britain stood loyally  with the United States in sympathy and  in moral influence in our light with Spain,  because avo were contending for the  rights of man to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, so will the sympathy  and moral influence of America be given  in this Avay to England, not only because  she is our kin .and friend, but because in  this fight she stands for the same fights  of man, and because, in the words bf the  Canadian prime minister, already quoted  in these columns, she stands "in defense  of a holy cause, in defense of a holy  justice, for the defense of tho oppressed,  for the enfranchisement of the down  trodden, and for the advancement of  liberty, progress and ciA'ilization."  London, October 12.���All kinds of  rumors are telegraphed from South Africa  regarding Boer movements. Apart from  the advance of the Volksrust and Van-  reenan commanders, reports have been  received of the concentration of the  Utrecht and Vreiheid commanders to-  Avards the drifts along the Buffalo river,  east of Dundee. One special correspondent at Ladysmith expresses the  opinion that a Boer command of some 200  men visited Newcastle on Tuesday, made  'purchases and then AvithdreAv. This suggestion may have given rise to the reports regarding the occupation of Laings  Nek. .  According to a. dispatch from Capetown, it is asserted that the Boers haA'e  arranged AA'ith chief Liuelnve, the prominent chief of the northwestern border, to  take ,up arms' against Britain.  A dispatch from Durban says that aiv  rangemehts for forming a<Ui-lander'.regiment haA'e been completed.  ������Leonard Courtney, Liberal member of  parliament'for Bodmin'division of Gorn-  Avall, addressing his constituents in "Lis-"  keard, was frequently interrupted.

He went up  by Slocan City and came down the south  fork to Kaslo, being exactly a week on  the trip. He reports that winter is coming on apace in the higher regions, where  the camp is situated, quite six inches of  snow covering the ground, and in some  places over a foot.  A large force of men are at Avork making a trail up the Ten-mile at the end of  the Enterprise road in order to tap this  division, and supplies are going up e\rery  day from Slocan City to Percy Dickenson's property, the Smuggler group, which  is to be vigorously Avorked throughout  the Avinter. There is .a splendid showing  of high grade silver-lead ore on these  properties, and big results Avill be attained immediately the properties arc  worked, for they can start shipping valuable ore from the surface.  Mr. Mansfield has also to get fi f ty or  sixty pack loads up from Slocan City to  supply the men he is about to put on to  develop several of the properties for Rene  Laudi of London, for Avhom he acts as  agent. Supplies Avill also be taken up  from Kaslo.  While in camp Mr. Mansfield purchased  the "Charleton" outright from W. E.  Boie of Slocan City, and took a bond on  the Green- Lake Fraction mineral claim  from Burt Pearson of the same place for  $4500, $500 being paid doAvn. It is presumed that the Joker lead runs through  the Treadwell, John A. and Green Lake  Fraction, and Avork will shortly be commenced on these properties, in addition  to the ones already being opened up.  Men are at present erecting buildings to  accomodate the workmen avIio Avill  shortly be put on to develop tliese latter  claims.        y .���.-.���...  In addition to securing the tAvo prop-'  er ties'- mentioned above, Mr. Mansfield  staked off a new claim called the Philo-  niene, AA'hieh, strange to say, adjoins the  Joker.    This  property^had  escaped  the  A MEETING OF THE CITY 00UN0IL  jrriug editorially to the South  ���African .war, the .Tribune Siiys; "Now  that Avar has actiTitlly been forceel by the  Tr'Misvaal upon Great iJiitain, the question arises, on which side ar0 American  sympathies.? They avOI not in the first  place, be misled by the proton eo that the  Transvaal is a republic and Great Brifcjvin  an effete monarchy, and that, therefore,  Americans should synipathize with tlie  former. They have only to compare the  restricted franchise and corrupted courts  of the Transvaal with the universal suffrage and free, strong judiciary of the  Cape Colony to disabuse themselves of  such notions.  The fact is that the Transvaal, with  citizenship restricted to a minority, Avitli,  not only religious, but sectarian tests  and lingual shibboleths hedging ia real  authority, is not a republic, but a particularly narrow and despotic oligarchy."  On the other hand, the nominal mon-  al'chy of the British empire, Avhether in  Great Britain itself, or iu the self-governed colonies, such as Cape Colony and  Canada, is one of the most complete democracies the Avorld has ever known. On  the general ground of forin of government, therefore, American sympathies  Avill naturally turn to the British side.  In brief then, Great Britain is acting  precisely as the United States would act  in her place, precisely as this country  would   have to act if it did not wish to.  y A��l0i'--^ili^pechi^iill;^ ']<&ffi\iiffiif^',��;>$M  ji'eeMe^*'-^ ' -?Thev  teif!?'tbm&ry ^efe-bf icb^d^ce: w^jS' 'nibvedp  'but.

A J?ioneer Bevisifcs Nelsoii.  John McDonald, of Oolville valley, is in  Nelson taking a look at the property of  tlie Hall Mines, Limited, in which- he is a  large owner. Mr. McDonald was the  business manager of the Silver King  properties when the ownership Avas vested  iu the original locators. He made Nelson  his home until the property Avas taken  over by the Hall Mines, Limited, but since  then has lived on one of the finest ranches  in Colville valley. Mr. McDonald Avill go  up to the Silver King tomorrow,, having  taken in the smelter yesterday.  The Venus Group Develops Well.  The Venus group, which is being de-  veloped by Dr. Doolittle, is showing up  Avell. There are about thirteen men Avorking on the property at present. The tunnel, Avhich is uoav in over 200 feet, gives  a depth of about 75 feet on the A'ein.  During the past week the ledge upon  which the tunnel is being ..driven maintained an average width of 2i feet, and  assays upon the ore averaged $00 to the  ton. . . - -i  .catf-'M-tt^  ?a��sa^��pl^  ^J%^^al^^'iMb^5(iher^ ."'.;���"*��� '  That Was a Strictly Business One.  The members of the city council met  yesterday afternoon to consider the  finances of the corporation, and incidentally to decide what should be done with  their estimated deficit of $18,309.-7,  Avhich the city clerk assured them would  mark the close of tlieir careers as aldermen for the current year. Before going  into the question of the finances, city  clerk Strachan asked the members of the  council Avhether they Avould prefer to  consider the statements Avhich he had  prepared in council or in committee. No  one appeared Avilling to moA'e the council  into committee, so the clerk began his  recital of the causes a. hich led up to the  deficit. To begin with, he informed tlie  council that the receipts of the corporation from all sources, exclusive of the  proceeds of debentures, to September'  30th AA'as $44,855.15, Avhich Avould probably be increased at the end of the year  to $5S,S70.15. This Increase was arrived  at by estimating the re\renue of the corporation for the remaining three months  of the year, Avhich the clerk phiced at  .$14,015, under the following heads:  Electric light rates S 'i.200  AViilerrates -..'   2,000  Sewer rentals.  1.000  Ilosul tax  "....'..*..'.  2.000  Ite.al estate taxes  I.(KX)  Jjiuonscs ...:.... -  300  l-'olico court fines'.

Alderman Fletcher's view of it Avas that a great mistake had been made in not asking for  $75,000 from the ratepayers instead of  $00,000. He knew it Avould cost $75,000  all the time.  Alderman Beer's Ariew Avas that the  great mistake had been made by alderman Fletcher in preventing him from increasing the people's taxes, as he proposed  doing.  Alderman Hillyer's opinion w.as that  the finance'coinmitteeshould haA'e checked  up the expenditures of the public works  committee. His solution Avas that the  receipts from miscellaneous sources should  be increased.  Enquiry Avas made as to the receipts  from the electric light service, and the  city clerk.'.replied, that they Avere not  quite $1400 a month. He Avas asked Avhy,  AA'ith the extensions made to the Avater-  Avorks system, that the Avater receipts  Avere not greater. His reply AA'as that the  action of the council in cutting the rate  in two had naturally diminished the  revenue. .-'������.-���'  Alderman Beer expressed the opinion  that the deficit could be overcome by a  bookkeeping device, if the city.

There is sin,  immense body of ore al ready in sight,  and the monthly shipments contracted  for can tliorefoi'e be eontiiiued iudeft  ui'  MERCHANTS BANK V. HOUSTON  Judgment of Mr. Justice Martin.  What the plaintiff alleges is substantially and briefly that the defendant  Houston is wrongfully in possession of  certain logs aiid lumber, Avhich are or  were at the time of the said defendant's  alleged Avrongful taking the property of  one L. C. Lawford, the plaintiff's predecessor in title. Apart from the question raised as to the applicability of the  Bank Act to the transaction now. under  review, the said issue of fact must be  disposed of, and the onus is on the plaintiff. A good deal of evidence Avas given  on the.point, and there is not a little conflict of testimony.  It is urged on behalf of tho defendants,  that the evidence of the plaintiff's manager alone is sufficient to  show  that the  transaction cannot stand, in that it shows  he Avas merely going through a form  in  introducing LaAvford, Gray's bookkeeper,  into the matter.    Without going so far  as this, it is nevertheless true tliat the  evidence of the manager, as a Avhole, does  not sufficiently support the case sought  to be niade out.    His ansAvers, to take a  few examples, to question 84 on page 22  of the evidence, questions 94 and 05 on  page 23,  question  100  on  page 24, aiid  cmestions 111 and 113 on page 25, are hot  consistent with the alleged ownership of  LaAvford.      As  to   LaAvford's   evidence,  it is still less satisfactory; and, further,  his demeanor in the Avitness box did not  impress me  favorably.     The  manager's  evidence    Avas    also,    in    my    opinion;  given   at times  Avith a certain amount  of   reluctance���the   not    unnatural    reluctance, of a m.an avIio realizes too late  that a mistake  has  been  made;  at the  same time, it is iiot to be understood that  I think there Avas  anything  underhand  about his conduct; J;ar from it.    I regard  it--, in- the  nature of a risky 'translation,'.,  with the otherwise laudable intention oil  the manager's part of increasing his bank's  business.   '.Even if tliere Avere no further  evidence  than  that of  these   two Avitnesses, I should hesitate to find the facts  in the plaintiff's favor.    But, for the  defence, Gray's testimony is important, and  satisfies me, if I had any doubt, that the  use of La wf ord's name in the -matter was,  but  a  form.    It  is  true  that he, Gray,  Avas, iua business way, lax and careless;  but T  believe  he  nevertheless told the  truth in the witness box.     The evidence\  of Thompson,  the mill foreman, which  AAras given in a straightforward  manner,  Avas analyzed at length by counsel on tliey:  recent argument.and Avliile tliere may be  y-mMtKSpine^^  -myn-ppmion, after a pcrnsal;S'0j���:'ii��l:M  "peMot sufficient to impai'tfltsllsKb^^  ja^rady.      .

It  was even repriuted in yesterday's Nelson  Minor as coming from that source.-   The  Spokane Chi'onicle publishes the article  with headlines that are glaringly false.  Hei-e they are:    "Trouble is  Brewing."  "Miners  iu   the  Kootenay Distiict Expected to Strike." "Don't Like the Wage."  "Have     Demanded     au     Increase      of  Fifty    Cents . per    Day   for   all *, Kinds  of   Labor."     "Mine  Owners   Say   They  -Will  Close   Down  Rather   Thau  Grant  ��� Further Concessions."    It is safe to say  that no more misleading -words could be  put into type.    The miners at Rossland  aud in  the Boundary  camps  liave   not  made a demand for an increase of wages,  and they do not intend to make any such  demand.    They are  being paid the same  wages for the  eight-hour day that they  received for the  ten-hour  day, and'tliey-  are content.*   It is men  like Hugh Sutherland, and newspapers  like the Nelson  Miner (which he controls), that are hurting this  country.    But as long as business men see  fit to support  them, they  imagine they have the backing and sympathy of the country, and will continue  to send  out  misleading and untruthful  reports.    This merchants of Nelson are doing a  large business with the merchants in  Cascade, Grand Forks, Greenwood,  Phoenix, and other towns in the Bound-  ary countiy, and the trade will increase;  yet some of them help to. keep alive a  newspaper in Nelson (the Miner) that is  sending out reports daily that tend to  create uncei'tainty as to the future of  that section.

The utilization of'the gases produced  in the blast furnace foi' the production of  power through tho medium of the gas engine lias now passed through the experimental stage in Belgium and Germany.  Engineers there are accepting it as an established fact, and are planning and  erecting plants on a large scale. At the  great works of tho John Cockerill Company at Seraing, in Belgium, 'where the  first experiments in this direction were  inade, a plant rated at 3000 II.-P. is nearly coinpleted, and installations of equal  or. greater size are under construction at  the blast furnaces at Hoerde and DifTer-  dange in Germany. That furnace owners  and managers are .ready'''to.invest their  money in such plants is evidence of the  confidence which they feel in the j'esults.  Some account of these plants will, be  found on auother page. ������..'���  The latest contribution to tlie.literature on this subject is found in a paper  published in the "Revue Universelle des  Minesj" written'by Mr. II. Savage, engineer of tlie Cockerill Company, who speaks  with authority, since the earliest experiments in the use of blast furnace gases  were conducted under his charge. At  Seraing the little experimental engine  running a small dynamo has been succeeded by a motor of 2*50 It.-P., which is  now in successful operation; and chu  plant of SOOO-H'.-P., above referred to,  will soon "be at work. The statements  presented in Mr. Savage's paper are based  ��� on results1 obtained in actual practice,  * and should be accepted accordingly.  Tho theoretical objections to the use Of  blast furnace gases -whieli have been  urged by some British and Gentian engineers, liave been found, in actual work,  to have but little weight. Tiie first and  most important of these wtis the large  quantity of dust in suspension carried  over by tlio gases as they leave the stack.  This seemed, at first sight, a serious difficulty; JbutV experience has shown thatthe  heavier particles tiro quickly deposited,  and the gases can be freed from them by  a very simple arrangement of passages  and collecting chambers. There is left  only tho very light, impalpable dust, and  the rapid movement and quick explosive  action in the gag. engine cylinders carries  this forward with such force that in the  2;*50-H.-P. engine at Seraing it has not  been necessary to use any special precautions,  and   there  has not   been  deposit  enough in tho cylinders or passages to  cause the slightest trouble. In fact, loss  clearing has been required than in engines using ordinary illuminating gas, in  which the parts often become clogged by  the 'deposit of particles of bituminous  matter. -  At some of tho new German plants it  has been thought best to provide purifiers  for the gas. The usual form adopted is  the dry purifier, in whieli the gas is passed through cylinders filled with coke. In  a few instances water is used in a fine  spray for the purpose of separating the  dust. It is not, however, considered  necessary to use an elaborate purifier  plant by those who have had the most  experience.  Auother objection, which was at first  very strongly urged against the use of  blast furnace gases, was their comparative poverty. This has uot, however,  been found au obstacle of any importance. With the proper degree of compression the working ofthe engines has  been thoroughly satisfactory. In reality,  a certain advantage is given to the designer, since there is, with the poorer gas,  a less violent explosion, and the cylinders  and Aralves wear better. In the size of  the engine little difference need be made  since with leaner gas a lesser quantity of  air is mixed, and the total volume passed  into the cylinder is not increased.  The gas engine heretofore has been  considered especially adapted to running  dynamos, owing to the high speed at  Avhich it is usually operated, and to the  advantages obtained by continuous running. At both Seraing and Differdange,  however, the new plants include gas engines to run the blast cylinders. In these  plants the cylinders are of large size, and  are directly connected to the air cylinders.    A fly-wheel is .necessary, of course-  but iu the Seraing plant this is not of excessive size, Aveighing only tAventy-five  tons for the 500-1I.-P. motors. It is expected that the engines Avill run at  eighty revolutions a minute, and the  blowing cylinders will be supplied with  Riedler .valves. At DifTerdange the  motors are of the Oechelhauser type, but  at Seraing they are of well known "Simplex" pattern. The operation of these  blast engines Avill bo Avatchcd Avith  interest.  It has been suggested that if the power  available in blast furnace gases is all utilized, there would be at most plants a  surplus. This is most certainly not an  objection. Where there tiro other works  in connection Avith a blast furnace, the  power supplied could, in most cases, be  utilized. In others the transmission  could be effected either in-the form of  electricity or by piping the gas itself,  Avhich is a very simple operation..-  As Ave have said abovo, the use of the  gas engine at blast furnaces is now past  the experimental stage. We believe that  by this means a reduction in the cost of  producing pig iron can be effected Avhich  is not to be despised, even in this period  of high prices; and ��our .iron-makers  should certainly look carefully into this  matter.   Torontonian Has  Confidence  m  Shamrock.  Francis G. Nelson, sporting editor of  the Toronto Globe, makes this prediction:  "While it is true that the two abortive  attemps to bring off a 1 ace for the America Cup produced nothing conclusive as to  the ultimate result of the series, it Avas  not altogether accidental that on both  occasions the Shamrock Avas the leading  bo.at Avhen the contests Avere declared off.  The more that is learned of the detailed  dimensions and construction of contending craft, the greater reason is there to  believe that Mr. Fife has out-designed  the product of the Herreshoff yard. It  Avas a decided surprise to those avIio had  accepted the guesses and imaginary  descriptions of the alleged experts Avhen  FULL LINE OF  the fact became known that the Fife  boat, Avith more power and greater sail  spread, had nevertheless the advantage,  if only a slight one, in the matter of time  allowance. Yachtsmen of the great lakes  have had all along a far greater faith-  founded on their own experience���in Mr,  Fife than in Mr. Watson as a designer of  racing craft. The latter has turned out  for the lakes fine, able vessels, but they  lacked tho speed of the Fife yachts, and  as compared Avith the Thistle and the  Valkyries, the Shamrock, like the Fife  boats on Lake Ontario, is the thoroughbred against the coach horse. Allowing  due consideration for Avhat little there is  to go on, it is not a rash prediction that  the Shamrock Avill beat the Columbia  throe straight races, beginning today."  Thirty Years After.  Toronto Telegram.  It Avas the advice of Hon. Edward  Blake Avhich brought Oliver Mowat off  tho bence to serve as attorney general of  Ontario in 1S72. It Avould be one of the  strangest of the changes Avhich the  Avhirlgig of time makes if the summons  of Oliver Mowat should now take Ed-  Avard Blake out of the Imperial parlia-  liamnnt to serve as the -attorney-general  of Ontario. The idea of Blake to the  rescue is utterly lacking in the element  of probability, but there are dramatic  possibilities in the suggestion, Avhich appeal to the imagination of cveiy political  student.

President Shaughnessy of the Canadian  Pacific Railway Company, is expected to  arrive in Nelson on the .Sth instant, on  his trip of inspection.  Passengers on the morning train from  Robson had to be transferred yesterday  at the sixty-fourth trestle. W. P. Tierney & Co. are at work at this point improving the roadway for tlie purpose of  cutting out this trestle, but in shooting  rock out of the hillside, they carried two  bents out of the trestle, whieli necessitated the transferring of passengers.  On Sunday next the new time table  will go into effect on the Canadian Pacific's railway and steamboat systems. No  change will be made in the Kaslo service,  but the steamers plying between Nelson  and Kootenay Landing will leave at 11  o'clock in the evening, instead of .10:30  o'clock ,'vs formerly, and on the return  trip will arrive at 1:30 o'clock in tlie  afternoon, iustead of 2:30 in the morning.  On the Boundary road, trains will leave  ���West Robson at 0 a. m., reaching Grand  Porks shortly after 2 p.m.; returning, instead of leaving Grand Porks at 7 a.m.,  the train Avill le;we at 12:20 p.m.  Believed to "be a Case of Small-pox.  Nisw Drnvi<:r, October 11.-���The Slocan  has what is supposed to be a well-defined  case of small-pox. 11. McTaggart, employed at the Silver Bell mine, near Sandon, came down the hill yesterday a  pretty sick man. The Sandon physicians,  when called in, diagnosed his case as  small-pox. He has since been put in a  shack and strictly quarantined. This  morning the Silver Bell camp was also  quarantined, the whole force (fifteen  men) being enjoined from coming down  the hill. The trouble is believed to be  due to the Chinese cooks employed, and  this has more than ever embittered the  camp against Chinese labor.  Yacht Race Again Postponed. .  New York, October 12.���A blanket of  fog over the course, and a lack of wind  caused another fizzle of the race of the  single stickers today. The yachts will  try again tomorrow, but the failures  have had a discouraging effect on the  general public, and tliere was a great  falling off in the number of excursion  boats. *   BUSINESS   MENTION.
