 w  ALL ARRANGEMENTS HAVE BEEN  Made to Render Assistance.  Ottawa, October 11.���The government  ���programme in  regard  to sending a contingent to  the Transvaal  Avill be made  public as soon as premier Laurier returns  to the city.    It turns out that the minister of militia and one or two heads of the  militia department have been at work for  more than two months making all necessary arrangements  to send a contingent,  should occasion arise that such should be  necessary.    Contracts were given out for  clothing and t-uch  things as would be ie-*  qui red by tho officers and men sent to the  front.    What the officials, who are thus  engaged, have had  to contend against is  ���that ;us soon as any action Avas taken in  the direction mentioned it was misrepresented   and   given   to   tlie   press.    They  wanted     to     move     qui tei y,     but     as  soon    <as     an     enquiry    was    made    iu  Toronto     from     Ottawa,    it     was    at'  once made public.    Some weeks  ago colonel  Foster  Avrote  to  the  commanding  officer  of the  12th  battalion  in  regard  to  the   number    of    men    and    officers  available.    The letter found   its  way to  the press.    Last  evening, it  is  said, the  minister of militia telegraphed from Montreal'to one of the  Toronto   regiments  making a similar  inquiry, and  an   hour  afterwards the contents of the  telegram  were being sent all  over  the  Dominion.  Tlie Military Gazette, a week ago, gave  was an official governmentprogrammc.  It  manufactured in the way described, and  was consequently incorrect.   \ Tlie report  that  general  Herbert or general Hutton  was to command was entirely erroneous.  . One of the first things decided upon was  that a  Canadian  should  command.    Tn  fact, the name of colonel Otter of Toronto  was selected.     Great  Britain  does nob  Avant a large contingent.    The latest information from  the war office is that a  couple     of     units,     or     500     in     all,"  will     suffice.'     In     other     words,     it  is   sentiment   .and   not    strength   that  is   required.     No   officer   higher    than  major will be required to go, which goes  to   show otliat  the  contingent  will    be  attached to an imperial corps.. Whenever  the imperial authorities  decide upon  it,  the contingent  will be  able to  sail,  as  there   is   little  doubt  that, as   soon  as  premier Laurier returns, final details will  be decided upon, and the public duly advised of the same.     Dr. Borden, who has  been busy  in his  department  for  some  days past, took a run down to Montreal  last night and returned tliis evening from  Montreal.      lie refuses,to be interviewed  concerning the Canadian contingent.   -  Iselin Wants More Support for Columbia. -  New. Yohic,  October 11.���Apropos  of"  tho  comments   on  the   management   of  Columbia,"Mr.   Iselin  this  evening said:  , "One of the matters which impressed me  this year iu comparison with other years  is the lax support which is being given  the-American boat. To me the ethics of  the ease seem very plain indeed.    On one  - side we have an English boat striving  for the eiip; on the other, an American boat trying to defend ,it. I  think Columbia will prove the abler  boat in any. weather, once we have a  race. The hopes of the defense of the  cup rest on Columbia and the American  people have given proof time and again  of how highly they regard that silver  trophy, Surely if any words are to be  said at this time, they should be ones of  encouragement. Yet what do we find?  For some, the particular task seems to be  to find flaws and muster discontent. My  own belief iu the craft cannot bo shaken  by any such side lights,i but remember  that wo have men wlio perhaps are not  in the position to weigh all the facts.  Now I will not say that these men have  Jbeen-affeeted by- thistalk-or���what-thoy-  have  read, but yet  1  can sec where it  might destroy part of their energy.   Jf it  reaches them at all, in that way, there is  a loss of enthusiasm bo us."  Everyone is now firmly settled in the  conviction that when tho struggle conies,  it will bo a grand ono, for Shamrock has  not lost anything in the expert opinion  during the last two days of waiting. On  the contrary she has shown a tendency  to gain. A well known sporting man  has $.5000 to place on Shamrock for the  first race. Further than that he makes  no proposition. On the series he will not  wager a penny. Except in cases whero a  man wishes to back his  patriotism, the  betting is almost on even terms.  ^"4 .  -->./  THUKSDAY MORKING, OCTOBER 12, 1899.

London, October 12.���A dispatch to  the Daily Telegraph from Ladysmith,  dated Wednesday, alone among the  specials received, declares that war has  been begun by the Boers in Natal. The  correspondent says: "Free State burghers liave secured a train at Ladysmith',  which was the property of the Natal  government. Last' night a mounted  patrol was stoned by the Boers. The  mens' orders were not to fire unless they  were fired upon."  London, October 11.���On Tuesday  cvening*-Mr. Chamberlain made public a  dispatch received from F. W. licit/., state  secretary of the South African Republic,  which contained a definite ultimatum to  Great Britain. (For some unexplicable  reason, the Associated Press telegrams on  Tuesday night contained no report of  this dispatch). The ultimatum .. ends  with the following final demands :  1. All points of mutual difference to be  settled by arbitration.  2. All British troops ou the Transvaal  border to be at once removed.  3. All reinforcements landed by Great  Britain in South Africa since June 1st,  1S90, to be withdrawn within a stated  time.  4. British troops uoav on the high seas  not to be lauded in South Africa.  A reply to' this ultimatum was demanded by secretary of state Iieitz: not  later than 5 p.m. yesterday. An unfavorable reply or further movements of  British troops "on the bordei, would be  taken as ta'taniouut to a formal declaration of.war. -   p    * ' - ," '  The news was received calmly here.  There was not a trace of the excitement  ^attendant upon the'announcement of the  result'on.the night after the first,race for  the America's cup". It is a fact that the  enthusiasm in London signally refuses  to compare with that shown in the  smallest American city upon the announcement of <bhe war with Spain.  This must not be interpreted to  mean that England is not alive to the  realities of the situation. The audacity  of the Transvaal momentarily stunned  the public and it was when under the  glare of music, lights, and listening to  the stirring bars of the national anthem  and other patriotic'airs, that the effects of  the momentary rebuff were lost in the  demonstrations that shook the rafters.  Ab the Alhambra, general sir Red vers  Bui lor was present. The first bars of  "Rule Britannia" brought the entire  audience to its feet and for a quarter of  au hour the house resounded with the  choruses of national airs and with cheers.  The Army and  Navy Club, familiarly  known as "The Rag,"  has  n_at_for_niany_  Mules for the British Forces.  New Orleans, October II.���The British steamship Prah, pf the Elder-Dempster company's line, now under charter  by the admiralty, sailed for Capetown at  daylight this morning with (571 mules.  Thirty men were employed to make the  trip and feed and tend the animals while  in transit,       Weather Forecast for Today's Eace.  New York, October 11.���Tlie weather  outlook tonight is still doubtful, and the  doubt does not clear up any more than  the fog, for there is little promise of  wind. The only thing that can be said  now is that it looks like a calm morning  with prospects of increasing breeze in the  afternoon.  Would Pay Four Dollars a Day.  John M. Harris of Sandon, who is one  of the leading members of the Silver-Lead  Mines Association, is reported as saying  that he is willing to start up his mines  and pay $4 a day for good miners, but  tliat it would be useless to   make the  a day seen such a gathering of campaign  ers as there was last night. Nor was the  slowly aroused enthusiasm confined to  the officers. At Wellington barracks,  where a battalion of Grenadiers, which  forms a portion of the first army corps,  had just returned from sixteen months'  service at Gibraltar, the enthusiasm knew  no bounds. Seldom does Tommy Atkins  allow himself the luxury of enthusiasm,  bat the regiment had liad a long spell of  dreary garrison duty, and hailed the call  to active service with schoolboy delight.  Underneath all, however, soldiers  aud civilians recognize the fact  that the Transvaal war will not be a  picnic, and the sober reality of this gives  a sterner note to London life than anything that has occurred since the day of  Gordon and Khartoum.  The first minister to speak publicly regarding the ultimatum was lord James of  Hereford, chancellor of the duchy of  Lancashire, who at Aberdeen said: "The  government had done everything in their  power to preserve peace. Apparently,  however, diplomacy is ended and the  hopes of peace are virtually destroyed, and  that not by the action of the queen's government but by theTrausvaal government.  President Kruger has sent an ultimatum.  If we were to withdraw our troops at his  bidding we should suffer the greatest  humiliation, and thegovernment deserve;  to be hunted from office as -craven*  cowards."  Lord James said he liad intended, before the news of the ultimatum came, t<i  take a different view of the position, but  now "nothing remains but to commend  our cause to the God of battle and arms,  and to implore his blessing upon the engagement about to be entered upon."  London, October 11.���Mr. Montague  White, consul general of the South Afri  can Republic in London, closed the consulate this evening and immediately left  for the continent.  Mr. AVhite's departure is not attended  by any excitement. Before shaking off  tho dust of England, he said to the representatives of the Associated Press:  "The expected has happened. I only  hope the hellishness of this premeditated  crushing out of a hardy republic is now  apparent. Let me remind America that  the onus of war lies not upon those Avho  fire the first shot, but upon those who  compel ib to be fired. Technically we  have temporarily put ourselves in an attitude of an aggressor, but who  would - not liave done so when  he believed the existence of his country  was at stake. I think we must look far  ahead to see the consequences of this  .war. Instead of thfi pacification of South  Africa, which is. the alleged aim of England, we shall have perpetual unrest.  These very people for whom England is  now fighting, will turn against her in  time to come and protest against her rule  as bitterly as they are now protesting  against ours.  For weeks I had seen England's, or  rather Mr. Chamberlain's, determination  to force hostile issues. I am sure he is  the only member of the cabinet whoso  mind was thoroughly made up throughout the negotiations. What his intentions were is evident from the situation  today. Had the franchise been the chief  grievance, our five-year proposition would  certainly have been accepted. I have  reason to believe that England enters  upon her warlike course by no means'a  unit. Opposition to Mr. Chamberlain's  policy exists to a greater extent than is  generally credited. Our evident desire  to conciliate has been appreciated^ and  our refusal to allow our household -affairs  to be ordered by another nation has excited no genuine indignation here or in  other quarters of the globe. However,  Mr. Chamberlain has accomplished his  purpose aud all hope is gone.  I believe, nevertheless, that a considerable reverse in British opinion would be  effected by any serious defeat, for most  of those now supporting the government  are doing so with a light heart and on  general principles, not stopping to count  the cost of Avar."  Mr. White cited thelsandleAvhana massacre as an instance of such a change iii  British opinion., He then went on to  .say:. "I suppose-there can be. only one  ultimate result of hostilities* As to the  duration of the Avar I am not able to say.  It seems to'me a matter of greatest uncertainty. I hear that Great Britain  will not begin the Aviphig out process  until December. In the meantime Ave  shall see Avhat Ave shall see. I have  received no special instructions or neAVS  from the Transvaal during the last forty-  eight hours, and' T expect none, having  long ago received directions as to the  course for me to take when matters  readied this stage. I shall remain on the  continent,-and if anything fur Cher can  be done in the interest of my gOA'ernmeut  I shall endeavor to do it, though there  seems nothing left but to fight it out to  the bitter, unjust end."  Mr. White seemed much distressed over  the rupture. He said the Transvaal  agency in Brussels avouIcI be continued as  the European headquarters of the government.  the   Transvaal  to represent British interests there during tho hostilities.  London, October 11.���The continental  opinion, so far as it can be ascertained  from today's dispatches, remains anti-  British. Popular sympathy AA'ith the  Boers is being shoAvn in ararious Avays in  Germany Avhere, however, officialdom  maintains an absolutely correct attitude.  French opinion is Avell known. The  boulevard'papers arc especially virulent  in their attacks upon Great Britain since  the ultimatum was announced and they  gleefully anticipate a long and difficult  Avar.  Neav York, October 11.���The London  correspondent of the Tribune says:  Kruger, finding it impossible to hold back  his peasant Ayarriors, has determined to  bring on a Avar without delay. Failing to  draiv Mr. Chamberlain into a premature  disclosure of fresh demands, Avhich could  be denounced as contrary to the convention of London, 1884, he has ordered his  secret array of state to send an ultimatum for the immediate withdrawal of  troops and for the suspension of military  preparations. The dispatch closes with a  clumsy attempt to construe a refusal  to comply Avith the demand  as a formal declaration of Avar  by the British government.  T Tliis news is receiA'ed here AArith considerable, amusement by the imperial officials, avIio perceive that Kruger has delivered . himself into their hands, since  the responsibility for war must rest on  the government Avhich gives out such a  summons to evacuate Soutli Africa and  then sets its oavu soldiers in motion. .'  This despatch is Avell calculated, by its  contemptuous terms and its lack of reason, to unite the British nation. There  can be no more peace talk in any quarter, aud the Liberals will join forces Avith  the Unionists in supporting active Avar  measures.  A great stir of military preparations  liave already been begun. An enormous  fleet of transports is in readiness to sail,  and the departure of sir Redvers Buller  Avith an army corps -\vil 1 be hastened.  ' The favorite theory among military officials is that sir Redvers Bailer's advance  Avill be through the  Orange  Free  State,  Pretoria, October 11.��� The Official  Gazette today contains the confiscation  laAV approved by the Volksraad, September 29bh, readopting the mining article,  AA'hich was eliminated last year, empoAver-  ing the government to confiscate tho  claims and mines belonging to persons  convicted of treason or conspiracy against  the state.  London, October 11.���A curious story  is in circulation regarding lord Ilosebery's  silence, unbroken until today. Ibis said  the real object of his silence Avas to lead  president Kruger to believe that ho (lord  Rosebery) and his followers might come  to the asssistance of the Transvaal, thus  stiffening president Kruger's back to'  ..resist. According to this explanation,  lord Rosebery's fear had been that president Kruger would yieid.whieh, from his  lordship's point of view, would, have been  fatal, as he is fully convinced that the  only road to permanent peace is the defeat of the Boers.  Kingston, Jamaica, October 11.���The  colonial government has received a cablegram from the British Avar office declining the offer for service of the Jamaica  militia in South Africa, but ordering the  regular Jamaica army reserve to report i  and to rejoin the colors on October 14th.  Lorenzo. Marques, October 11.���The  British third class cruiser Philomel has returned, after .following the French  steamer Enti'e Rios, captain Connan,  from Havre, August 24th for South  Africa. The cruiser found no ammunition on board. It is asserted that all  French ships Avere stopped when the  German cargoes Avere seized.  London, October II.���The foreign  office confirms the report froihyWashing-  toil that' Great. Britain has asked the  United Stiites government to empoAver  the United States consular authorities in  that the Boer army Avill be ultimately  draAVu into tliat. quarter, and that the  Natril forces Avill cut off its retreat. The  ultimate plan "* of the campaign is now  less important than the earlier stage of  hostile ,operations,; Avlien the British  forces'Avill be outnumbered by the Dutch  allies, and in danger of meeting Avith a  serious reverse.' Kruger, hoAvever, AA'ith  his perverse talent for inertia, seems to  have waited too long before striking-the  first Woav."  **   -  Neav York, October 11.���Referring  editorially to the Transvaal ultimatum,  the Tribune today says: , "A hackneyed  proverb springs to the mind at reading  the ama/.iug document sent from Pretoria  to London -AA*hom God would destroy, He  first makes mad.' We Avould notsay that  the destruction' of the Trausvaal is the  diA'ine will, but assuredly there could be  no greater act of madness thau the dispatch of such a defiau t and virtual declaration of Avar. The ultimatum, assuming the cabled reports of it to be correct,  comes as an unwelcome shock to the  peaceful and moral sensibilities of the  Avorld, because, within the last few clays,  it, AA-as_becoming��� more-evident- that-an-  amieable settlement of all matters in dispute betAveen Great Britain and the  Transvaal Avas easily within reach."  The utterances of such men as Mr.  Morley on the one side and the duke of  Devonshire on the other, havo indicated  a spirit of justice and conciliation AA'Orthy  of triumph. Nor have similar manifestations of good Avill in South Africa been  lacking. Yesterday morning, there av.-is  cause to reckon peace decidedly in ascendency. This morning tlie creaking of  tho gates of the Temple of Janus may bo  heard.  The Avorld Avill look upon the catastrophe of the Avar iu South Africa Avith inexpressible regret, and Avill regard it as a  needless and wanton Av-roivg upon humanity. But it Avill not charge the responsibility therefore against the great power  Avhich has wrought justice to the Boer  and Briton alike in its own domain, and  has demanded nothing more than justice  for Briton and Boer alike in the domain  of its dependent."  London, October 11.���The military authorities in South Africa haA'e instituted  a censorship over all telegrams, in order  to prevent information regarding British  movements from reaching the Boers.  Pretoria, October IL���Experiments  made here have shoAvn that an armored  train can be pierced like tissue paper by  Creusot guns.  London, October II.���Ib is rumored  that Conynghoni Greene, the British  diplomatic agent at Pretoria, has been  assassinated there. -  Blobm-fontein, October 11.��� ThcOrango  Free State and the Transvaal officials  held a conference regarding the time  limit of the Boer ultimatum. The Transvaal wanted to alloAV only tAventy-four  hours, but tho Free State suggested a  compromise of forty-eight hours. .   It is  not belieA'ed  here  that any formal  declaration of war Avill bo made.  Pietermaritziiuhg, October 10. The  Boers are rapidly reinforcing on the borders and becoming more Avarlike. It is  announced that general Priusloo has  been formally appointed commander-  general of the Orange Free State forces,  and has established ilieadquartez's at Al-  bertina. Yesterday afternoon the governor of Natal, sir Walter Francis Hely-  Hutchinson, Avith general sir George  White and general Symoiis, received a  deputation of Uitlanders, Avho offered to  enroll 3000 volunteers among the refugees. The authorities promised to assist the undertaking.  WILL BE AWAY IN THE HOLE  At the End of the Year.  At the meeting of the city council this  afternoon the aldermen Avill endeavor to  find out Avhere they, are at financially,  and estimate the size of the deficit which  they Avill bequeath to their successors.  The overdraft has not been occasioned by  any loss in the estimated revenue, but  rather by excess of expenditures upon  debenture accounts. The estimated revenue for the year Avas $55,000. That this  total Avill be reached is likely. Up to the  end of *che third quarter the receipts  under the head of general account  amounted to $44,855.15, and AA'ith the tax  upon the nickle-in-the-slot' machines  Avhich now amounts to a. considerable  sum, the light and Avater rates, AA'hich exceed $1700 per month, and the receipts  from the road tax, it is safe to say that  the first estimate Avill be surpassed. The  expenditures upon .public,works, however, have not only used up".the proceeds  of their several debenture issues, but  have cut into the general revenue as Avell.  So inucli so has this been the case that  after adding the proceeds of the debenture issues to the general receipts, tliere  remained after Monday evening's meeting  but $12,500 to the credit of the city to  complete the present heavy Avater and  light contracts, Avhich are now in hand  and meet the current expenses of the  corporation for the remainder of the  year. Assuming that the receipts of the  corporation for the remainder of the  year Avill be sufficient'to realize, the estimated revenue for the year there will be  a deficit Avhich at present is variously  estimated at from $S000 to $15,000. There  Avill probably "be a good deal- of dodging  at this "afternoon's meeting to escape  responsibility.  SHORT BITS OF NELSON*.

"W*RF KLt JSpITlONi.    first Ykak, No. Uio  ....SkvSnth Yjeab, No. 38  ���>��� THB people who patronize tlie organs  of the iniue nnuiagers' associations,  Burely cannot be in .sympathy with the  utterances of.- these papers. Men .who  have mej'chaudise and prospects and mines  and real estate to sell surely "must know  t'liat there can be no market ii* the conn-  try is at a standstill, and haAre not tliese  organs been publishing statements to  that effect for months? Day before yesterday the organ in Nelson of the local  mine managers' association stated that  tlie mines in Slocan district were all  "shut doAvn indefinitely." This statement  will no doubt be copied in eastern papers,  and what will be the effect? Men avIio  are looking for investments Avill not seek  the Slocan as. ah investing field, and  as Nelson gets a share of its trade from  the Slocan, it AA'ill likewise be given the goby. These alarmist reports are untruthful,  but the eastern man is not awai-e of it.  The business men oi' -, Kootenay can  effectually .stop such reports iby withdrawing tlieir patronage from the papers  making them.    ,  TriJ3 mines in the Slocan are not all  closed down indefinitely. There, is not a  single mine in the Slocan closed down.  It is true, several of the large shipping  mines are not working full forces; but  all have a few men at woi'k., There are  over a thousand' men at Avork in and  around mines in the district bounded on  the east by Kootenay lake, on the south  by Kootenay river, on tlie Avest by Slocan  river and lake, and on the north by "Wilson and Schroeder creeks. This is the  territory usually designated as the Slocan, although it includes the mines at  -Alirisworlh. This number  creased, for the. winter  the most ��� favorable for  and shipments of ore are  the mare go."  ___3Y_Eni,__tho_dry_goods_and_grocery_and  drug stores in Nelson each to put in from  one to three nickel-in-the-slot machines  tlieir "profits Avould bo increased from  $100 to $500 per month, and tlie city  would obtain an increased revenue. There  is no reason AA'hy the cigar and liquor  stores should have a monopoly of a good  tiling. Then, too, the "push" Avould be  all the stronger on election day.  It is current rumor that the city authorities recently closed a poker room  in wliich men who played poker arc said  to have got the worst of it. It is also  current rumor that they refuse to close  a nickel-in-the-slot machine that robs  every man Avho plays against it. Why  this discrimination ?   David Mark GahliSy of the Economist is looked upon ass a staid and cmi-,  nently repSpectable old gentleman. The  staid and respectable element in Nelson  is aAvare that there is one place of amuse-,  meat in the city���the Nelson opera house.  But it seems that David Mark knOAVs the  Avheroabouts in Nelson of several places  of amusement "that give sIioavs that  Avould," to use his own language, "bring  "a blush of shame to the cheeks of even  " the frequenters of dive music halls."

SAVINGS BANK BRANCH.  CURRENT RATE OK INTEREST PAID  LETTEES   THAT   MISLEAD.  Tlie following is a fair sample of the  misleading and untruthful letters that  appear in tlie English papers :  BRITISH   COLUMBIA.  [Special to the People.]  There  tire  excellent  prospects  in the  colony of British Columbia for any young  man who wishes to go abroad and is not  afraid of work.   The country is as yet in  its  infancy.    Tlie principal  industry  is  mining,  and fresh  mines  are being discovered  and developed every day.    The  wages in tho in iiiing camps ai'e 12s. per  day  (formerly  Ms.).    That was for ten  .hours' work, but since the ..miners' union  have  decided that the day   was  to be  eight hours the pay was reduced to 12s.  The climate  is very  mild and* healthy,  and living'very.-cheap.    The   principal  centres to-make for are Rossland, Nelson,  and Greenwood, where  there is always  plenty  of  work.    The  Canadian Pacific  Tiaihvay Company have "just completed  the Crow's   Nest railway,- 'which   runs  tluough the Kootenay countiy, in connection  "with a  splendid steamboat c**ci-  vice on theiiveis    The hue fiom London is about JC14 10s.    Domestic sei v.vnts  can eain good "wages  in Vancouvei  and  the colony of Victona, wheie most of the  lesidents aie English     A nuisemaid gets  �����3  poi  mouth tnul  a good geneial and  cook about ��6, which is \eiy good,  as  clothing and other necessnues aie almost  ab cheap us in London, but up till now  tin's   countiy has been  oveilooked, and  consequently   many   good   tilings   h.wc  been picked up and wot ked by Aiuei icaii  capital.     This  has   changed   now,   and  Butifah capitalists aio coming in, and in  vitiiig    mechanics   ���   ie,    bucklayeio,  plumbeis,  caipenteis,  an<l   blacksmiths,  who can al way _ find woik in the punci-  pal towns, and eai ti thiee to four tloijais  per  day.    It is not a good countiy ior  -.Mining,  as it has been tned.    Tiie government  spent,1 lot of money on some  expemnental fauns, but they weie not a  gieat success      In  suminei   it   is  Aery  warm, but notnneomfoi table, and in wni-  toi, which is the 1 ��ny season, it is nevei  veiycold, except up in the mountainous  legions,    like    C.mboo    and    Omenica.  Bulbs  There is a great deal of gold dredging on  the Fraser river, and the Chinamen still  intike a good living by panning and washing dirt along its-banks. In the sunn nor  the salmon canneries tire in full swing for  three months. The fish swarm so in the  river in the narrows that it overflows its  hanks, antl hundreds of fine fish are left  high and dry. Anyone thinking of  changing their country, .and going to a  younger one to grow up with it, which,  by the way, is the only road to success in  those places, "will do.well to give British  Columbia a trial. The Canadian Pacific  railway, (JI, King William street, Loni-  don, E.C., will give all information, and  book free on the subject. ;  Where the Shamrock Gains. '  Now York Tribune. )  It is Uot known Avhether the lead ofthe  Shamrock weighs more than the Columbia's, but from the testing of the vessel  it is evident that it is sufficient for the  vessel's stability, and when it is known  that this lead is so much, lower iu the  .water  than the Columbia's  it  must be  seen that a great advantage has been acquired in this way.    In other words, the  Shamrock can get  the same amount of  stability at a less expense by having her.  lead low down.    Again, in the. matter of  beam power Fife has the advantage.    It  is not known how much -wider the Sham-:  rock is than the Columbia, but the differ-;  ence is apparent to the eye.    In the matter of support  to be  derived from the  sides,"the.Shamrock again has an advantage in having a great deal of freeboard  to   lie  down   on if necessary.    Thus iu  'draught, ballasting and lateral 'support'  the   Shamiock   has the advantage.   In  sail aiea she has anothei advantage m  hiving a  much  largei   spiead  than the  Columbia, aud the cleverness of Mr. Fife  has been shown in the fact that Ins evtia  sail aiea costs him nothing in the meas-  uiement.    As is well known, sail aiea and  watei hue length aie both calculated to  asceitpiin tho lacing length of the yachts,  and Fife has" so designed the Shamiock  that she measiues on the  watei line one'  foot and nine inches less th.m the Coliini-,  bia.    So tli.it it may be said that none of  his advantages cost him anything.    The  d> aught ib not me.isui ed, and neither is  the beam powet, and the whole of the ex-,  cess of sail aiea is moie than paid for by.  the shoi tcned water line.    These tacts of  themsehes suggest a gieat deal as to the  supeiiouty, as a whole, of the designing.  Th.it a slim boat AA'ith neither gi eat depth  1101 beam poA\er, nor excessiA*"e sail aiea,  should actually giA e time to a huge boat  like the Shamiock Avould seem absuid if  it weie not indeed too tine, aud  the results, as a Avhole, seem to suggest that  the  Shamiock  is physically entitled to  Avin in btee/es that haA'e any poAvei in  them. This does not mean that she Avill  take tho cup, as there are innumerable  reasons Avhy a boat may not Avin, but,  considering the amount of-forethought  and subtlety that has been put into the  challenger, she seems to "have the call"  on structural points.  That Sutherland Mystery.  Woodstock Express.  The entrance of James Sutherland to  the cabinet must have been a momentous  event, judging by the expressions of opinion it has called forth. It's a snub to  tho. old Liberals; it's an evidence that  the government is tottering to its fall ;  it's ti sop to Otttuva; it's a sure sign of an  early election; it means the-dethronement of sir Richard Cartwright; it's a  concession to machine politics���and  goodness only knows what it is or isn't,  according to esteemed contemporaries.  Up here in Oxford people Avill accept the  appointment simply as a recognition of  real worth and good service.  A Sentimental Tiirf Episode.  Jessie Flanegan, an'Iowa miss of fourteen years, and the thoroughbred horse  Jim McCleevy are the central figures in a  turf episode that carries Avith it  more  sentiment than usually goes with the ordinary events that transpire on a race  track..   The little girl is an orphan, and  until a few days ago the race horse AAras  her school fund.   He Avas claimed from  her  possession in a .selling race  at the  Hawthorne track, and his record to date  shows that he has not ay on a race in the  many starts he has made this year except  during the time he -was. the property of  Miss   Flanegan.     Turfmen    are   superstitious, and many of them at the Chicago tracks can be found who Avill say that  the horse cannot win for the reason that  the girl prays he never will.    The money  that Avas received for Jim McCleevy is  sufficient to buy another good horse, but  Miss Flanegan likes the name and none  but an Irish horse will do.   The incident  began in August, when H. Robinson,, the  girl's uncle,  bought  Jim  McCleevy   for  $760.    He Avas able and Avilliug to school  his niece, but she was independent, and all  her capital was invested   in the horse,'  Former owners'of Jim McCleevy had been  unable to make him Avin, but when ho  AA-as lacing to give a gul au education he  could show great  speed.    Within thiee  Aveeks he Avon $670 tor his young owner.  The story Avas told iu every stable at the  Hailem and Hawthorne tiacks, and the  trainer, thinking no one Avould evet  interfere, took thehbeity of en tei ing the  hoise in selling 1 aces, wheie his chances  of Avimiiug Aveie much better.    He counted Avrongly, however, and the horse Avas  claimed  foi $800 last  month by a supposed friend of Robinson.    When Mis*--  Flanegan,  Avho  is   at school in Council  Bluffs,  A\as told  that   her suppoit had  FULL LINE OF  been taken away she Avas indignant.  Another horse AA'as purchased and offered  to her,- but she refused to accept it. The  name of the proffered horse is Yuba Dam,  and it seemed too suggestive to the mind  of the girl. Mr. Robinson is now looking  for a horse with a pure Irish name, and  if Jim McClecA'y should ever be inadvertently entered in a selling race ho would  likely be returned to his former owner  speedily.

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 ofthe Rockies.  m  ��?-  fa  fa  fa  M,  D.

Joseph Jackson, the newly appointed  weighinaster for the city, is demonstrating the wisdom of the city's regulation  requiring the weighing of coal. Since  tho weighing of coal has been insisted  upon, it has developed that in nearly  every instance ton weights aro from 150  to 200 pounds short, while half-ton  weights almost invariably show an excess. A certificate of weight is given  with every load of coal weighed upon the  scales, wliich should be demanded by the  purchasers of the coal from tho teamsters  making tlie delivery.
