 TEXT OF THE BOER REPLY TO  The British Government.  London, October 10.���Late this evening  the colonial ollice gave��out the text of  the following telegram, transmitted by sir  Alfred Milner, British high commissioner  to South Africa, to tho secretary of state  for the colonies, Joseph Chamberlain, and  recei veil today:  Sir���The government of the .South African Republic   feels  ilself  compelled to  refer tlie  government",   of   her  majesty,  queen of Great Britain aud Ireland, once  more to  tlio   convention   of   188-1,  con  eluded   between   tliis   republic   and   the  United Kingdom,and which in article XI V  secures   certain   specified   rights   to   the  .white     population-    of    tliis     republic.  A  violation   of these  rights  only  could  give her majesty's government this right  of   diplomatic   representation   or   intervention; while tlie regulation of all other  questions  affecting   the  position of  the  rights of tho Uitlanders, under tlie above  mentioned convention, is handed over to  the  government   and   representative  of  the people of the .South African republic.  Among the questions, the regulation of  which falls exclusively  within   the  competence of this government, are  included  those of franchises and representation of  the people in this republic, and  although  this exclusive right  of  this  government  and of the volksraad   for   the regulation  of the franchise and the representation of  the  people  is -indisputable, yet the government has found occasion to discuss, in  friendly fashion, the franchise and representation of the people with her majesty's  government, without, however, recognizing any right thereto on the part of   her  majesty's government.   This government  has also, by the formulation of the new  existing franchise law, and by a  resolution   with   regard    to    tho   representation,   constantly,   held   these   friendly  discussions before its eyes.     On the part  of her  majesty's  government, however,  ,the friendly  nature of these discussions  has assumed more and more  a threatening tone, and the minds of the people of  this   republic   and the  whole  of Soutli  Africa have been excited, aud a position  of extreme tension been  created,  owing  to the fact that her majesty's government  could no longer agree to  the legislation  respecting the franchise and the resolution   lespecting   representation   in  this  lepubhe, and,  finally,  by  your  note  of  September 25bh, 1S9!), wliich broke off all  f i iondly correspondence on the subject,  and intimated that her majesty's government hifts'tlfij*^  their owii^rppM^  Tliis" SgovgSnm'ei^  .���^myy��A  tttt��  WEDNESDAY MORNING, OCTOBER 11, 1899.

Tlie Washington correspondent of the  Sun says: Reginald Tower, the charge  d'aliaires of (float "Britain in Washington, liad an interview with Dr. Hall, the  acting secretary of state today, lb is  said that the purpose of his visit was to  ask the state department to designate  Charles E. Maeeruin, of Ohio, United  States consul at Pretoria, as the representative of British interests in the  Transvaal in the event of war between  that country and Britain. This is a eus-  tonuiry proceeding and an entirely  natural instance, as tlie diplomatic and  consular departments of Great Britain, in  Spain and her possessions, looked out for  the interests of Americans in the Spanish  territory during the war between Spain  and the-United States. If Mi', Tower  made the request and hostilities should  begin there, Mr. Macerum, of course, will  be designated.  In fact it has been understood by the  government, ever since the Transvaal  question assumed an acute stage, tliat  such an arrangement would be requested  by Great Britain. The officials of the  state department have undertaken the  question of the propriety of receiving a  diplomatic representative of tlie South  African Republic. It is not likely, however, that any agent of the South African Republic will be received by the  state department in any official capacity.  In the convention of 188'i between Great  Britain and the Transvaal it was., expressly stipulated that the Transvaal  should not make any treaties with foreign  governments, except the Orange Free  State, without approval of the British  government, and a. treaty between the  Transvaal and the Orange Free State,  was to be declared void if Great Britain  considered its provisions .detrimental to  her interests. *  This convention will probably be followed by the United States in answering  a request from the South African Republic for the recognition of a diplomatic  agent.

Niow Yon ic, October 10.���The Tribune  today says: Plans are being perfected  for the construction of a short railway  in C.ape Breton island, Nova Scotia, the  completion of which, it is said, will make  possible a saving of IS hours in the time  required for bringing mail from Europe  to this port.  The lino is to built by the Cape Breton  Railway Extension Company, Limited,  which was incorporated under a special  act of the Nova Scotia legislature, passed  March 30th, 1899, and was organized for  business. Those of the corporation who  are resident in the United States, are  John Crump, of this city, Charles Corfield,  of Philadelphia, Joseph Shute, of Atlantic  City, New Jersey, and Lorenzo Shute and  Herbert Dix, of Stanwick, Ncav Jersey.  It is understood that the interests behind the enterprise are the Vanderbilts,  Dr. .Seward Webb being mentioned as its  principal promoter, and it is said that  one of the Vanderbilt private cars only a  day or two ago carried a party from this  city to Nova Scotia on business connected  with the building of fhe new road.  Louisburg, on the east coast of Cape  Breton, 2240 nautical miles from Liverpool, has an excellent harbor never icebound, and a pier, having a depth for admitting the largest vessels at low water.  It is proposed by the company just organized to build a railway from this port,  which may be made the western terminus of a line of fast mail carrying British  steamships, to Hawkesbury, on the straits  of Cansou, a distance of 80 miles from  Hawkesbury.  Existing railways would carry the international mails to all parts of the Dominion of Canada and the United States,  the lines on this side of the border, by  which the mail would reach /New York  City, being, con trolled by, or in close relations with the Vanderbilt roads. The  new road is to be constructed and operated in two sections, the raihvay section,  and the bridge or ferry section, over the  ���i'ip��tU0Y0i;��$^  l&'p^o^eiWiv'i^  ���tfS^f pah^iSp-i'^t; of-I|^;^ta|ii^'|^:  ^ecQipftfitiotf^  ii&Of British^Hzei"*��)JiMyv;    .

Haying regard to occurrences in the  history of this republic, which it is unnecessary here to call to mind, this republic felt obliged to regard this military  force iii the neighborhood of its borders  tis tij threat agtiinst the independence of  the Sooth African republic, since it was  aware of no circumstances which would  justify the presence of such a military  foi'e'e'iii South Africa and iu tlie neigh-  b< i'l'iqod of its borders.  In an  answef  to an  inquiry with respect thereto, addressed to his excellency  tlie Mgh co'iimissioner, this goverjimeut  ree* ived to its great astonishment, in an-  ��� swer, a veiled intimation  that from the  side of the republic an attack was being  made ou  her majesty's colonies,  and at  the same time a mysterious reference to  , the possibilities, whereby this government  i was strengthened in its suspicion that the  ; independence of this' republic was being  ��� threatened.   As a defensive measure, this  , government was therefore obliged to send  ; a ���portion of the burghers of this republic  in order to offer requisite resistance to  similar possibilities."

Chicago, October 10.���Sir Wilfrid  Laurier, premier of Canada, aud other  distinguished Canadians in the premier's  party, were guests of the Canadian-  Americans today, at an informal luncheon  at the Groat Northern hotel. Over a  hundred guests were present.  The guests began by drinking the  healthof presidentMcKinley and followed  by doing likewise for queen Victoria,  with appropriate toasts. Sir Wilfrid  Laurier responded to the toast, "Canada"  and was frequently interrupted by  applause.  Mayor Prefontaine, of Montreal, spoke  , on the intimate commercial relations be-  .. twoen Canada and the United States, and  urged even closer union along the line of  trade.  The premier and his party visited the  Board of Trade shortly before noon and  were given a decidedly lively welcome by  the bulls and bears in the grain pits. The  Canadian premier, after being welcomed  by president P. S. Lyon, secretary Stone  and others, was escorted to the private  gallery. His entrance was the signal for  a temporary cessation of business, and  the traders, climbing on chairs, tables  and even on each others' backs, yelled  their greetings to' the visiting Canadians.  In response to calls for a speech, Premier  Laurier responded briefly. He said that  as his effort to obtain better social and  commercial relations Avith the United  States had been partially successful, he  was happy. He also said that Canada  was the best purchaser the United States  had, man for man. This.evening the Canadians were driven through the streets  and over the boulevards.  Decided Against the Bank.  Mr. justice Martin has handed down  his decision in-;the Merchants Bank of  Halifax vs John Houston et al case. The  action was brought by the bank to recover possession of about 400,000 feet of  logs and 200,000 feet of lumber  in-the  ���i���*iBl^Wid*^  from the rest of the crew. The Press continues: "These stokers must be terrible  felloAvs to inspire officers, sailors and  male passengers of the' Scotsman witli  such terror that they did not even attempt to rid the women of bad treatment, of lewd songs, and the heart-breaking companionshionship of a few dozen  brutes. As to the pillage, we shall nob  speak of it, English justice having not  taken the thing seriously, since it was  satisfied to condemn to a $10 line the famous stokers of the Scotsman, brought  back to their country by the Monterey  and found in possession of jewclery stolen  from the passengers."  "Paralysis" That the Country Can Stand.  That the niining industry of Kootenay  is a rather lively corpse is borne out by  tlie customs returns of the port of Nelson  for the quarter ending September 30bh.  During this period the value of the goods  entered for import was $213,145, of  which $172,9S4 represented the value of  the dutiable and $40,101 the value of the  free goods. The duty collected aggregated $4S,S5.*3.4S. In the corresponding  quarter of 189S the value of the imports  was but $123,0*37, of which sum $109,S94  represented the value of the dutiable  goods, while $13,743 represented the  Value of the free goods. During this  quarter the collections aggregated $31,-  S90.33. These figures show that during  the last three months, while thccliief industry of the district was reported as  paralyzed, the collections of the port of  Nelson were more than 50 per cent  greater than during, the corresponding  quarter of 1S9S.  4il>on*  ilxtt*.  $Jte>3prl0pe^^  B_n ^ -���..���.._.  ne^i*'"ea^*0^:'��:a"del*-"the  tleineii of Philadelphia made a miserable  showing in the last match against prince  Ranjitsinji's' English cricketei's.

The match was  begun on Saturday last./ The Englishmen scored 3(53 in their first innings, of  which the prince himself contribiited 08,  the top score 74, being .inade by Stoddart.

Press Censorship at Manila Abolished.  WApSMINOTON, October 10.���Adjutant-  general Corbin announced today that the  censorship at Manila had not existed for  a month, general Otis having abolished.it  on September 9th. There has never been,  any occasion for announcing tlie fact  until today, when, some question arose as  to the restriction that might prevail, full  reports about the fall campaign reaching  American newspapers. It then developed  that there was no restriction. Any description can be sent by a reputable correspondent to a newspaper, although,  under the new regulations, information  of value to the enemy, or untruthful reports,  will  destroy  the  sender's future  usefulness.

On the three days last week,  when the yachts made attempts to sail,  light, flukey winds left them stranded on  the course when the time limit expired.  Today a-fog bank prevented them from  even leaving their  mooring  buoy  iuside  the spit of land wliich forms Sandy Hook  at the entrance to the lower bay.    Tliis  was by far the most  dismal  day  of all.  There was  gloom  on  board  the  yachts  this morning Avhen   the  crcAvs Avoke up.  "Nothing    doing   on   the   ocean,"    Avas  their     verdict.       But      tlie      AA'eather  bureau had predicted   fair weather with  shifting Avinds for today, and a few clung  A'ainly to the hope  that the prognostications would turn out true. The poor, misguided  public   Avent   like  Iambs  to  the  slaughter.    Meanwhile the racers laid tied  to tlieir  big  buoys  inside the horseshoe.  The circle of their vision through the fog  Avas barely two  hundred  yards in diameter. The sun bored a Avay into the gloom  but could not ponetrate it.  There Avas no-wind to lift the cloud of  mist that literally settled on the water.  If anything the curtain seemed to groAV  denser as the time for getting under way  approached. The danger of being run  down alone Avould haAre deterred them  from putting to sea. SirThonias and Mr.  Iselin had agreed at nine o'clock not to  sail unless the fog lifted and there Avas a  suitable breeze. So the big sloops dtUA-d-  led idly at the moorings.  The crews loafed Jibout the decks. The  prospect of a race Avas never at any time  good enough to justify them in removing  the eoA-ers from the mainsails. About  them lay the flotilla of bottle-holders,  avIio attend upon these gladiators of the  deep, namely tenders, tugs, barges,  launches, and eA'cn steamers.  It is a A'ery luxurious establishment  that a competitor in an international  yacht race maiutains, and it Avas an eye-  opener for some of the sightseers, avIio  subsequently had au opportunity to see  and realize just Iioav tenderly these  fragile racing machines are eared for.

Great changes have taken place in the  Transvaal since Majuba Hill. Then the  ]ioer army was simply a collection of  patriotic farmers, organized only for the  defence of their hearths "and homes.  Such a tiling'as fighting according to the  European .method ..was' not thought of,  and neither was it necessary, as the  crushing defeat of the British regulars  proved. The wily Boer, however, realized that it would hardly be possible to  repeat the victory of Ma]uba Hill. The  present crisis finds the Boer with his new  tactics learned and everything as much  in readiness for a coup in 1809 as it was  in 1SS1. Now the Transvaal is fortified  with modern strongholds that are  crammed with amtuunition and bristling  with ordnance. The soldiers are organized and trained in the art of war; every  branch of tlie service, and especially the  artillery, is. thoroughly equipped.  To form a correct idea; of tlie formidable nature of this tinny, imagine a. force  made up of 45,000 'men of the caliber of  our rough riders, fighting to the death on  ���'their., native soil. Could any array of  . European makeup force passes guarded  by such a body of men as tliese? Gunners toiling up the passes to place tlieir  pieces would be picked "bit tit long range  like deer on a hillside. To increase tlie  attacking force "would only add to the  slaughter. .  , '  Should tho sharpshooters" fail to keep  back the storining'-iirmy that must force  Laing's'Neck to get to the Transvaal, tho  British will 'find they have to cope witli  as line "a body of artillery as the' world's  , armies possess. The guns tire of the very  newest pattern, 'tlie -gunners trained  marksmen*. Tliis maguilicent artillery  comprises the second line that the British must face after forcing back skirmish-"  ers who have never yet been beaten at  their own particular style of fighting.  ' After the forcing of tho passes into the  Transvaal, what? Why the British  must win their way step by step, for the  Boers will only allow the invaders to gain  ground over-their dead bodies. Should  the lirst line of defence be killed to a  man,  the British must still capture the  FOR-FALL-PL ANTTING -  tada Ilriig ami look Oo.,  i_ii^i__j_3_3  Corner of Baker and Stanley Scoots.

On the road to Johannesburg tho British will encounter a fort that has been  declared to be little short of impregnable.  On the other hand there" aro many who  predict that the Boers will take the initiative and, with a quick dash across the  border, before the bulk of the British caii:  arrive, havo Capo Colony tit tlieir'mercy.  Here the mistake is made of supposing  liliat the British have not taken warning  by the signs of the coming storm. Never!  were the troops of the queen in bettor  shape at Cape Colony than at present.  Tho'map gives an idea of the .strategical positions af the two forces. On the  cast and southeast of the Transvaal audi  to the east of the Orange Free state lies  the colony of Natal, of; which Zululand is  .now a province. It has three military  stations��� Pietermaritzjburg, Ladysmith;  and Eshowe. A railway runs up from;  Durban or Port Natal, through Pieter-;  inarit'/.burg and Ladysmith, to the border,  township of Charlestown, whence it isl  continued through Transvaal, territory  to-.Johannesburg.' The angle formed by;  the Newcastle district,., which juts out  between the South African republic and!  the Orange Free state, is a position of;  great importance, a "fact clearly recognized by the British military authorities:  in the formation of a camp at Laing's:  Neck.  Of the   British    regiments   in   South  Africa at  the present  time several  are  fully educated in the guerrilla style  of  warfare that the Boers would, practice in  the  event   of   war   breaking   out.    The  ���most efficient and best equipped troops;  are  the body  of Natal. mounted  police,  550 strong,  composed  of men who are-  ready  for immediate service, know tlie  country thoroughly and are fully train-,  ed to the requirements of Soutli African;  warfare. ;  "The  Cape Mounted -Rifles - is another -  force that will bo able to cope with the,  Boers on.terms of equality by reason of  the fact''.'that they know as. much about  the Boer, style of fighting as the Boei\  does.'  These Rifles .-were . reorganized in'  IS7S from  tho Frontier mounted police!  Their strength is now a little over 1000.,  Like the Natal police, the Cape mounted  Rifles possess artillery aud are ready to.  go to tho front at an hour's notice.  Of the various volunteer organizations  that aro composed of Cape Colonists who  know- how to use the rille aud take part  in a "sniping" warfare, are the Transkei  mounted rides, commanded by captain'  St. John Henley, This corps is made up  of trained sharpshooters, hunters of  game .and expert marksmen.

The body of. men who would probably  be called upon to throw themselves into  the breach to stop a Boer raid is known  as the Diamond Fields Horse. Tliis is  ��� one of the most noted military organizations in Soutli Africa and forms the right  wing of the Griqualand West brigade,  which also comprises the Diamond Fields  artillery and tho Kimberley rilles. Had  these crack military organizations of  Soutli Af.iica been among the defenders  of Majuba Hill it is certain that a different tale would have been told on the day  when general Colley thought to end the  war by his unfortunate (lank movement.  Any rush of the Boers will, therefore,  meet a barrier that will be strong  enough to hold back tho tide of sharpshooters from the Transvaal until the reinforcements arrive from England and:  India.  ...  A Lesson in Economics.  The 'difficulty of changing an established standard of coinage is far greater thani  appears  at first  sight.    Our  dollar is of I  such a weight that $1.8(5 2-3 cents shall be  equal to one pound sterling.    That is an  awkward ratio, as awkward as could be"  devised.    Our  dollar, too, contains 23.22*  grains    of   gold,   an   awkward   weight,  neither a measure nor a multiple of any;  weight  used in trade..   But these awkward weights and ratios exist on account*  of the difficulty  of making alterations.,  When people grow accustomed to the use  of a coin they learn to estimate its value-  in all the articles of trade.    They know  how much wheat, how much labor, how  iriucli bread,  butter,  cloth and lumber,  how much of all articles and all lines of  service it  will   buy.    For   that   reason;  when the weights and measures ofordinary commodities are adjusted and regu-;  lated,  the weights of coins, with which.1  people have grown familiar, are not dis-1  turbed.    Thus the weights of coins bearj  no   easily   measurable   relation   to   the;  weights  used  in trade.    To  change the j  Canadian  dollar to the fifth of a pound'  sterling   would   create  great  confusion.;  The   purchasing 'power'' of   the   dollar!  would be changed and all quoted prices *  would be'upset.    Wages as expressed in.  dollars would fall, although really as high  as before, and every price list would re-'  qtiire readjustment.  Craft and Subtlety.  Justice  has  never  been  done  to   the,  craft and subtlety with which this gov-.  eminent  conducts negotiations.      Take, 5  for example, that bit of roguishness, or  'verueukerij,' atBloemfontein..  The wily*  Oom Paul told sir Alfred Milner.that the  Uitlanders could 'easily become electors:  for the Second Raad, and "you know,"- he  added, with "bland*" persuasiveness, "they,  have then" the right to serve as jurymen*;  and select the local officials, such as field  cornet,     commandant   and    landroost."  Was .it a slip ofthe memory of. the old  man that caused him to forget to tell sir  Alfred that every one of these privileges  had been taken away from . the gold;  fields? The high commissioner, not having been-to-Johannesburg, was probably  not aware that the town, which contains  a larger European population than, all  Oom Paul's burghers put together, could  not, if every man of them were a second  ' raad voter, elect a single official. Every  other part of the Transvaal did choose  its magistrate, but not Johannesburg.  And now, when there is a possibility of  the Uitlander getting the franchise, the  volksraad has rushed through a new  amendment to the constitution, providing tliat henceforth the landroosts shall  all be appointed by the president.  The Old Man's Occupation.  "It's a queer world," said the old man,  "when you come to think it over. You  know, 1 eddicated Jim for a lawyer.  "Yes."  "An'Bill fer a preacher ?"  "Exactly."  "An' Tom fer oneo' them tliere literary  fellers?"    '  "I've heard so."  '    "An' Dick fer a doctor ?"  :    "Yes." ," ''   :  "Well,.now, what do you reckon I'm a1  doin'of?"  "Cau'tsay."

B-^-KidE'iR  S!_?*REl*__'i,1   3STfe_i.S.O._SF  ,;0  Si  For Winter  THE LOCAL NEWS OF THE TOWN  A Nuisance That Should Be Abated.  Fraser & Broderick, the dairymen, will  come before mayor Neelands this morning upon tlie charge of allowing four cows  to run at large within tho city limits.  The dairymen in question follow the  practice, which is common in Nelson, of  pasturing their ca.tt.le on tlie streets of  the city. They have something over  twenty cows, and one man is assigned to  the work ol' herding the bunch. On Monday four cows got away from the herder,  and the poundkeeper proceeded to drive  them to the pound. They escaped back  to the herd, when the herder refused to  allow the poiindkccpci* to take possession  of them. It is said that the city bylaw  is defective, in that there is no clause  prohibiting the pasturing of cattle on the  public streets so long as they are in the  care of a herder. Whether this is so or  not, it appears to be the .practice of  dairymen to pasture their cattle on the  streets, to the great annoyance of the  citizens. Now that this 'matter is before  the court, it should be thoroughly gone  into. If the present bylaw does not provide for the abatement of the nuisance,  another should be passed, .and passed at  once. The Municipal Clauses Act gives  the council power to pass bylaws regulating the keeping of cows. Sub-section  1(50 of section 50 of this act empowers  the passing of bylaws "for preventing or  regulating the keeping of cows, goats,  pigs, and other animals and defining  limits within which the same may. be  kept." This should be broad enough to  secure the abatement of the nuisance.  Local actuaries have figured out that  the education of Nelson's children costs  the province less per capita than in any  other city in the interior. Upon the per  capita basis, education in Nelson costs  costs $18.70, Rossland $17.00, Kaslo $14.71,  Kamloops $25, and Barkerville $100.52.  Frederick Flannigan will receive his  preliminary, hearing this morning upon a  charge of assault. W. A. Galliher will  appear for the prosecution.  BUSINESS   MENTION.  Furnished rooms to let.
