In the Attack of Mafeking.
London, October 20.—Tlie Mail's Capetown correspondent says : "It is reported here that news has reached Deer Junction that the Boer., attacked Mafeking in
foi'ce bjit were repulsed. The defenders
.seeing tho enemy, retreating pursued
them for some time. Then a feint w.as
make and they commenced to retire on
the town, allowing themselves to be
driven in by tho Boors, who, eager to ro-
trieve their position again advanced to
the attack and were drawn over the Lyddite niines laid for the defence ot the
town. Ib is reported that 1500 'were
killed by the explosion.
A i*efugee who has readied Grahams-
town from tho .Rand states that a train
arrived at .Johannesburg on Monday
from Klortnsdorp with 300 wounded
burghers. Every available 'conveyance
was called into requisition to take tlie
Avouuded men to the hospital. The
Daily Mail suggests that tliese wounded
were from Mafeking.
Vrysburg surrendered on Sunday.
Thursday night's dispatches from Kurt-
man, ninety miles west by south of Vrysburg, states that tlio police, having withdrawn from Vrysbuigtlic town surrendered to tho Boers, tlie inhabitants Hoeing in
all directions. When tlie police -withdrew, tlie Capo Boors notified tho enemy
thus inviting them to take possession.
There was a fearful panic. The British
are wildly indignant at this scuttling.

And Defends His Policy.
London,  October  19.—The   lloor   and
galleries were densely ciowdcd today in
. the house of commons in  anticipation of
the .speech by tho secretary  of state for
the colonies, Joseph Chamberlain, on the
government's   policy  in  South   African
ail airs.    During tho first hour of the sos-
- sion  the  fiist lord of  the  treasury and
government leader, Arthur  Balfour, pj-o-
mised to answer tomorrow the  question
whether   tho   government    had   agieed
upon a specific course of action  with reference  to  Jin  international commission
respecting the future  administration of
Samoa.    Tho secretary of state for India,
lord  George Hamilton,   replying  to tho
question  of expenditme  for  the Indian
troops  in  South  Africa, said tlie entire
charge is to be defrayed out of  the  Imperial exchequer.    Mr. Balfour, replying
-.to an interpolation as to whether the Imperial government  were now  reviewing
the  action  of  premier  W.  P. Sohreinor3
rand other members of the  Capo government, and"as to -whether tho governor of
Cape Colony, sir Alfred Milner, would be
allowed to  dismiss  the Schreiiier minis-,
try,  dissolve  tlie  Cape   legislature  and
temporarily assume full authoiity, said:
"This question, apparently founded upon
newspaper reports, for  which,  so far as
the Imperial government is  aware, there
are   no   foundation."    Mr.   Balfour   announced that the present sitting  of parliament should be regarded as a complete
session  and bo  tcuuinatcd  by prorogation, and not adjoin ued  until  Februaiv.
Mr.   Chamberlain,   *who    was    loudly
cheered upon rising, began with a severe
criticism of the action of the  opposition
nt the previous  mooting  of  pailiament.
Their  statements, lie said, calculated to
encourage pi esident Kruger's  resistance
and enibarras Fhe government. Referring
to Mr. Stanhope's demand yes tei day for
the production of his (Mi. ChambeiIain's)
letter to Mr. Ilawkesly, he said he would
gladly produce it if sir  William Vernon
Ilareoui't and  John  Morley, who_wcro_
" members of tlie South African committee,
demanded it. "The government welcomed all honest and honorable criticisms of their policy," said Mr. Chamberlain, "and I wish I could apply tliese epithets to the speech of the honorable member for Burnley."
Mr. Stanhope, leaping to his feet, cried :
"T rise to a point of order. I thought fit
yesterday to arraign the conduct of the
secretary of state for the colonies. Ho
speaks of my criticisms as dishonorable
and dishonest. Can such terms bo applied to the members of the house?" (Opposition cries of No ! Xo !)
The speaker, William Court Cully, intervened, saying the language of tlie colonial secretary was "beyond parliamentary bounds."
Mr. Chamberlain retorted that it "was
impossible to adequately describe Mr.
Stanhope's accusation tliat he (Mr. Chamberlain) and .sir Alfred Milner had fomented war. Dealing with the criticism
made upon the South African League, he
said he could not claim acquaintance
with a single member of it. The league
was one of the poorest pecuniarily, but
at the same time most representative political organization ever established.
With regard to the allegations respecting
his own association with Cecil Bhodes.he
declared that from the time of the Jameson raid he had had no communication,
either direct or indirecr, with Mr. Rhodes
on any subject connected with South
African policy. He had seen the gentleman with reference to tlie Cape-to-Cairo
railway project and with reference to
Rhodesia, but the conversations had
"never touched upon the subjects now under discussion, and he would remind the
liouse that Mr. Rhodes, although a millionaire, had gone to face danger at Kimberley.    (Cheers).
Proceeding to discuss the question of
supremacy, Mr. Chamberlain said : " The
whole object of the Boers has been to
roust the queen from her portion. Now
they have thrown oif the mask and declared themselves a sovereign independent st.ate. Her majesty's government
have had a suspicion amounting to knowledge that the mission of Dr. Leyds is
one continued scries of negotiations with
foreign powers, against Britain. (Loud
cheers). The Transvaal and the Orange
Free State have an ideal which is dangerous to Great Britain, and by the continuous accretion of arms the Transvaal
has become by far- the most powerful
military state in Africa. That was a
danger, and we have escaped one of the
greatest dangers we were ever subjected
to in Africa. The whole "point of
difference between tho opposition
and the government is as to the details
of the negotiations.
Justifying liis conduct of affairs, Mr.
Chamberlain denied that the question of
suzerainty had needlessly irritated the
Transvaal governmentorseriouslyaifected
the negotiations. As for the franchise
for the Uitlanders he declared that the
government have never shifted its ground,
jind that every point advanced at tlie
Bloomfontein conference by sir Alfred
Milner had remained on the paper until
the ultimatum, "and," he added, "I am
much more afraid of the charge of being
too moderate than of the charge of being
excessive." Continuing he said: "The
government's reply to the Transvaal
accepted the five years' franchise proposal, except in*respect of the pledge
that Great Biitain would never again
interfere in the Ti'ansvaal's internal
affairs, but they hoped that if tho five
year fianchise measure Avere carried into
effect, there would be no occasion for interference. I believe that influential
advisei s, 1 do not mean foreign poweis,
must havo intervened and influenced the
Tiansvaal government to withdraw their
offer. As for the last proposals formulated by the British government, I may
say that tho desire of the member for
West Monmouthshire, sir William Vernon
Ilarcourt, that they be published will
never be gratified. The ultimatum is
buried and is not likely to be resurrected."
On the Canadian Contingent.
Nclsoii has boon awarded the honor of
being ropiesontcd by one officer and
three men on the Canadian contingent
which will lie sent to the Transvaal.
There is gre;tt regret among the fifty
who volunteered for service that more of
them were not permitted to go, but on
the other hand there is genuine satisfaction among the membei s of the local
company of rifles over the selection of
captain A. E. Hodgins as one of the offi-
cets of the contingent.
Since captain Hodgins was authorized
on Sunday evening to accept -voluuteers
for service nothing further was heard
from the district officer commanding at
Victoria until about midnight on Wednesday, when he leeeived the following
telegram from lieutenant-colonel Peteis,
notifying him of his oavu selection as one
of tho contingent and instructing him to
enlist but three men :
— Captain—Ilodgius.-Nelson;— You- aie~
selected as an officer on the contingent.
Report at once in Vancouvei to major
Jones. Enlist three men. Contingent
leaves Vancouver on October 2ith. Arrange to connect. The following is the
oath: 1 swear that I will well and truly
serve our sovereign lady the queen in the
Canadian volunteers for active service
until lawfully discharged ; and that I
will resist her majesty's enemies and
cause her majesty's peace to be kept on
land and at sea, and that I will in all
matters pertaining to my .service faithfully discharge my duty according to hvvy,
so help me God.
Captain Hodgins immediately reported
by wire and asked if the matter could be
so arranged that ho could meet the contingent along the line of the Canadian
Pacific railway instead of reporting at
Vancouver. This lie considered necessary in order thatho might have a couple
of days in which to put his business in
shape, having at the time of the call four
large buildings in course of erection in
this city which could not be turned over
to anyone else without explanation.
Yestei'day afternoon captain Hodgins
and lieutenant Beer went over the list of
the volunteers who had been passed by
Dr. Symmonds for the purpose of selecting from the many who were anxious to
serve the three men whom the district
officer commanding authorized him to
enlist. It was au unsatisfactoiy position
for the captain of the company to be
placed in. From fifty men who had
volunteered within twenty-four hours
after the call but three men could be
drawn.. Sergeant W. J. G. Dickinson,
private A. S. Lee and private W. O.
Paterson were eventually .selected.
Of the men who will represent Nelson
in the Canadian contingent captain Hodgins is a graduate of the Royal Military
College of   Kingston, whieli  he left in
1SS2 after putting in a four year course.
After leaving the college captain Hodgins
•went on the reserve of engineer officers
as first lieutenant and upon the organization of the local company of Koot-
eiiiiy Rifles was promoted to a
captaincy. As p the Kingston college
has furnished a great many officers for
the British army it is more than probable that captain Hodgins will meet several former classmates in South Africa.
Sergeant W. J. G. Dickson, who has
been in the real estate business in Nelson
for several years, is the senior sergeant
in the local company of rifles. He has
not seen any service, but will doubtless
give a good account of himself "should the
opportunity be given him. Privates H.
S. Lee and W. O. Paterson arc both well
known. The fornier is a civil engineer
and came to Nelson during the construction of the Crow's Nest Pass road.
Paterson has an advantage over the other
three Nolson representatives in that he is
as much at home in South Africa as in
Nelson. He was a troop sergeant-major
in an irregular force in South Africa and
has a medal for service in Matabeleland.

party under Dr. Jameson, wliich came to
In the Flannigan Case.
The juroj's in the case of Regina vs.
.Flannigan, in which the prisoner was
charged with the Maslonka assault, disagreed after they had been out ten hours.
It is said that the jurors were about
evenly divided, and as their foreman
announced that there was no prospect of
au agreement they were discharged. It is
not known yet whether the crown will
proceed with a retrial of the case at the
present assize or not. The prisoner was
convicted upon the Frost case, the max-;
imiim penalty for which is two years'
imprisonment with whippings. If the. retrial is not proceeded with at the present
assize the prisoner will receive sentence
for the Frost assault today.
Mr. justice Martin yesterday disposed
of the application of deputy attoiuey-
general Maclean to estreat the bail of
Walter Turubull. who had failed to appear in answer to a charge of theft from
the person of a woman named Hanson.
The Turubull bail was fixed at $.500,

New Denver, October 19.—Another of
the lake mines is starting up with the
avowed intention of keeping a full force
employed all winter. It is the Chapleau,
the necessary orders for the operations of
wliich arrived from England on Saturday. J. Williams' went to Europe some
weeks ago to float a company to operate
the property, and he has been successful.
It is the intention to put in a sleigh road
up Lemon creek from the Kilo and ship
ore as soon as possible. The Chapleau
has made a record for itself in the past,
as smelter returns from several carloads
of ore shipped ran as high as $85 per ton
in gold. NeAV workings Avill be started
lower,down on the vein, proving it to a
great depth.
Word has been received that the
sleigh-road up Ten-mile creek, to the
summit of Kaslo from Aylwin, is to be
pushed through at once. There is it large
quantity of supplies to go in.
W. C. E. Koch Avill commence operations at once with his sawmill on Ten-
mile creek. Considerable lumber and
tiniber will be required so soon as the
Enterprise starts up.
Two carloads of ore has been shipped
this season by the Black Prince, Springer
eieek, the second car going out a few
days ago. The owners are Avorking the
property themselves Avith gratifying success. ScA'eti men are employed and they
are breaking down a lot of ore. The

than ever before, there being six feet of
clean ore in the breast. This, and other

that she leave the country, and that it

In consequence of the action of the
Hamilton Powder Company and the Giant
I Powder Company in removing the excess
of powder from their magazines on Magazine Point, the indictments against them
were Avithdrawn. The deputy attorney-
general explained to the court that true
bills liad been returned at the previous
assize against both companies. The
cases had not beeu, proceeded with, how-
evej', and in the interval the companies
had removed the powder. In vieAv of
this the croAvn A\ra& prepared to AAith-
draw the indictments.
S. S. Taylor, a. ho appeared on behalf
of the powder companies, explained tliat
while the excess of powder had been removed the companies claimed the right
to keep such quantities of powder there
as Avere permitted by the ExplosiA-es Act
of Bi'itish Columbia. In removing, the
companie$ had only iemo\'cd the excess
over the quantities mentioned in the Explosives Act so that their magazines could
no t_be regarded as_nuisances.	
The  deputy attorney-general   replied
tlnat this AA'as satisfactory, as in the event
of the quantity of powder stored in the
magazines exceeding the limits of the Explosives Act, neAv indictments could bo
prepared. The indictments Avere thereupon Avithdrawn.
The proceedings to quash tho conviction of police magistrate Ci'oaso, in the
police court case against tlie Hamilton
PoAvder Company, aviII come up this
morning. In this ca.se the powder company AA'as fined $200 for storing more

Britain Will Make a Display.
London, October 10.—In the house of
commons yesterday tho first Ioicl of the
trcasuiy and government leader, Mr.
Balfour, bi ought in the following message from the queen ; "Thustateof nflaiis
in Africa having constituted in the opinion of her majesty a case of emergency
Avithin the meaning of the act of parliament, her majesty deems it proper to
provide additional means for military
service. She h<'is, thctufoic, thought it
right to communicate to tho house that
her majesty is, by proclamation about to
oi'der the embodiment of the militia and
to call out the militia ivsoi've force, or
such pa11 iheicof as her majesty may
think necessary, for permanent  .service."
The calling out of the militia and military reserve has occasioned Avidospread
Avonderuieut. Old stories of preparation
against continental combinations are re-
vja'cu. It is freely rumored that the government is determined to dcmonstiatc to
Europe that tho British army i-^ not a
uegligable quantity.
IJoth the attitude of Europe aud that
of natives of South Aft ica liave something to do with this attitude and the
lavish display of force is intended, doubtless, not only to check the ill Avill apparent on both sides of tho Rhine and
beyond the Vistula, but .also to guard
against the Dlack peril.
According to statistics published this
year tho militia, including the poi inancnt
staff  mid   the  lesei'A-e, numbers 1*12,IDS.
It is not believed that the militia are
to bo sent to .South Africa. Piesumably
they Avill replenish the denuded British
garrison towns and thus permit the goA'-
urmncnt to send to the Capo all legnlars
rendered necessary by developments iu
.South Africa.
By the Mine Managers' Combine.
It AA'as thought strange  that. Roderick
Finlayson  Tolmie,   ex-clerk of the  land
registry office at Victoria, and ex-mining
recorder at Nelson,  and who. has been
a   resident   of   Seattle    since    quitting
office   at   Nelson,   should   be   sent   for
to act as   a mere clerk   for  the  bucking    mine    managers    of    the    Slocan.
There    Avas   a   nigger    in    the,  Avood-
pile somcAvhore, and  the discwery  has
just been made.     Mr. Tolmie is reckoned
as one of the smoothest political-Avorkers
that can be found in the  province.    For
years,  in  Victoria,- he  was  one  of  the
head push in all provincial elections, and
last year he AA'as no slouch right here  in
Kootenay.    He is a plausible  talker, and
Avhen  he  gets a "story" pat,  he  can, if
given  a  good  chance, -work  a Avorking
man to the queen's taste.    He-has a job
iioav where these qualities stand  him  in
good stead, and the mine  managers avIio
belong to the freeze-out combiue belieA'e
that  he  can,   single-handed,  smash the
miners' unions to smithereens.   He is employed as a three-dollar-a-day missionary,
to make proselytes among the men  avIio
folloAV   niining   for   a   living.      He  approaches a miner; giA-es him the "story;"
then induces him to sign an agreement
to go to AA-ork in the Slocan, Avhen  aa'anted, at   the   three-dollar-a-day   scale   of
AA'ages.    "Rod," you had better "go  back
to Seattle.    The boys think  pretty  Avell
of you, but their good opinion Avill change
if you remain long iu your present company. 	
Hundreds of Men are at Work.
New I.)eiiioi Ledge.
Much has been said and much has been
Avritten about the eight-hour laAV in the
Slocan. It is uoav OArer four months since
the mine managers stood pat and commenced to sip misery, Avhile they waited
for this great district to become a corpse.
It is still alive, although it has stood a lot
of jabbing from thel pens of literary
wild-cats, and a hurricane of Avind from
pleasant, but misguided, mine managers.'
Upon examination AA*e find that the camp
Avhich has made Kootenay famous is still
breathing and has OA'er 700 men Avorking
Avithin its borders at mining. AVe find
that the forces are being constantly increased, Avhich Avill be sad neAvs to those
Avho wish people to believe that wo would
have nothing - to live upon this winter
except blue-ruin and siioav. There is not
an empty stomach iu the camp, and tho
inhabitants still Avear clothes. If Thanksgiving had uot been sprung on us bo soon
this year Ave Avould all be eating turkey ■
today: Those birds are so scarce that
they cannot bo had for love or money.
AAre all have the price, and will haA'e other
luxuries in their stead.
Last Avoek aa-c ga%'e a partial list of the
properties Avorking and the number of
men employed. The opposition press
(those papeis that believe they can Avin
the contest against the miners by decrying the camp) stated the list AA'as incorrect, and attempted to prove there was
not tho activity going on that Ave reported. AVe can conceive of nothing
moie silly than this. It is to the interest of every man in the district to have
the camp go .ahead—e\'ery man but the
prospect buyer who A\'ants to buy at the
lowest ebb—and the general iclival now
noticeable should not bo checked by the
political clogs along the way. The list
avc gave last Aveek Avas, in the main, cor-
ject, so far as aa-o weio able to learn. It
Avas not claimed that it Avas absolutely
j eliable,"for this'is^soinefclTihg-tliafTabsQ-"7-
lute reliability cannot be attained in,
since the Avorking forces are liable to
change daily. Since last week avc have
learned of further additions to the Avorking forces, and give below a fairly correct summary of the number of properties working and the men employed :

The entire situation could not be better illustrated  than by the story told of Stephenson and  the coa\'. Tho peaceful bovine has been  unAvilling to move olT the road upon  which it took up the right to broAA'se, but  the locomotiA'o of progress is traveling  remorselessly that Avay and if ix collision  should occur, "so much the worse for the  cow.'  Mining Laws that Permit Dual O-wnership.  Serious difficulty is reported in some  districts of AVestorn Australia, arising  from tho provision of the local mining  laAV Avhich allows alluvial and quartz  niining claims to be located on tho same  ground; permitting, that is, a double  OAvnership of the same territory. The  question has been further complicated by  a recent decision of the Colonial supreme  court to the elfect that where a claim is  already held and Avorked as a quartz  claim, other parties can enter upon it and  search for alluvial gold, but are not entitled to remove any gold obtained in the  search. The chief difficulty, where a  double OAvnership is established, is to  draAV the line between the alluvial and  reef gold; and one can readily see that  this may gi\'o rise to endless litigation.  Tho surface areas of some of tho richest  mines in the Kalgoorlie district are iioav  being prospected for alluvial gold, not-  Avithstanding objection of their owners  and managers. A change in the laAV  would seem to be expedient, if good titles  and freedom from litigation are0to be  secured.  &&.^&e&&&&&&&  _, -%  Now on Display ^x.

That company has a traffic agent  in Kootenay who is a continuous blue  ruin shouter ab the mine managers'  ���mourner's bench.

' ..  '-  THE   BOVINE   IN   THE   PATH.  "With the approach of actual hostilities  in  South Africa interest in  the Orange  Free State -will be augmented.    Hitherto  that republic has always avoided any direct   collision   Avith   Great   Britain,   although the Boers of that state have priv-  itely assisted their  brethern across the  Vaal.    Jt Avas Avell  understood   by the  British  government that this Avould be  done,  but it A\'as  ignored as being  the  best policy not to take notice of little irregularities Avhich the government of the  Vvce State  Avas not powerful enough to  prevent, and would only provoke greater  resentment by attempting it.    The former president, Brand,  Avas a man of unusual sagacity,'   and   steered   his   little  country clear  of  all  difficulties.    Steyn  appears,to- be   more emotional,  and although he is no doubt- sincerely .patriotic  his sentiments  have run  aAvay Avith his  judgment.   He has as surely doomed the  Orange Free  State to annihilation jis an  independent organization as if he had deliberately surrendered' if* into the hands  ofthe British,    ft has  hitherto occuped  to .South   Africa  the    status   accorded  Switzerland  by  Europe.    Its  autonomy  has'becn acknowledged and its territory  respected.    As a friendly poAver  British  troops never stepped upon its soil, but its  contiguity to the more belligerent Boers  gave it an importance Avhich commanded  from  England very agreeable consideration.  President Steyn, by joining forces AA'ith  the Boers and making' the Free State a  party to the conflict;, has invited occupation, by British troops. Not only -will  this give an advantage to the English in  permitting them access to the Transvaal  through the Free State, but Avhen the  -Transvaal-has-been-eiitirely-subjiigated,-  tlie war Avill be continued against the  Free State, and at its close the British  flag Avill fly over all the territory iioav  covered by the tAvo republics.  The situation finds no butter comment  than that of the Turk���"kismet." It is  fate. President Steyn may not' kuoAv  Avhat it is he has brought upon his poo-  pie, but Kruger does rcali/.c tho gravity  of the situation. Ue knoAvs better than  his- people, but he owes his position entirely to his sympathy Avith Boer ideas.  His people have no idcii of Avhat a tremendous force they haA'e provoked, and  he has. probably been swept from the  moorings he attempted to hold on to for  his state and yields to a irresistible  demand.  Great Britain is seeking to establish a  commercial empire in .South Africa. The  Trims van I has been a vexatious obstacle.  Not only has trade been diverted from its  course in order; to-^pass .around* the  boundaries ��� of the state, but little con-  troversies have  been seized as an excuse  WHOLESALE  . Butter,  .

Few people have any adequate idea of  the vast stores of mineral and other  natural resources of Siberia, tho mighty,  undeveloped land which is now being  traversed by a railway for the first time.  The fastnesses of tliat' country, which  have hitherto beeu absolutely impregnable to colonists, contain mineral wealth  of immense extent, and some idea of  what that country will eventually produce may be gleaned from a recent letter  of consul Monaghan, writing to the state  department from Chcrmit/.. In part he  says:  "Siberia and the Amur lands are rich  beyond   belief.    Their  13,400,000  square  kilometers (5,213,050 square miles) are inhabited  by only  4,000,000 souls.    In recent years, however, the number of immigrants    (400,000    hist   year)   has    been  equaled  only by the tide  which poured  into the United States in the piist.    This  vast  territory,  loug  looked  upon  as   a  barren waste, is destined to be one of the  world's richest and most productive sections.    In Northern France wheat ripens  in  127  days;  in  Siberia in   107.    Even  strong  night frosts  do not   injure  the  young seed.    Under such conditions the  possibilities of agriculture are practically  unlimited,    I may add that oats require  ' in  Siberia, and the Amur country  only  ninety-six days, and in the regions of tlio  Yenisei oafy 107.    Tho.frost period lasts  only ninety-seven days in the Trktusk  country.     Transbaikalia   .lies    entirely  within  the agricultural  regions ; sp, too,  almost'the entire territory traversed by  the Amur as far north as  it ruiis.    Efforts are being made to obtain, along the  Amur, at least 300,000 square, kilometers'  (115,S35 kpiare    miles)  for. the   higher  "forms'of  nothern   agriculture. - Climati-  . cally, the  best of Northern Asia's territory, for planting pucposcs,Jis the Osuir  country, whieli, in spito of its vast tracts  of woods and grazing- lands, has 195,000  square kilometers'(75.292 square miles) of  arable   ground.

Notwithstanding the number of places in  which iron is located, there j.are only four  largo establishments for its production.  The ores tire rich���'J8 to 00 per cent of  raw iron.  "The industries of Siberi.a arc in their  infancy;  still they are growing  and are  bound   to grow, so rich  are the rewards  promised.     Chemical,  sugar and   paper  mills havo been mit in several places and  are paying   well.      I.ven   Manchuria,  a  province so vast that it might make an  empire, is looking to Russia for its future  development.    The wealth of this province, like that of Siberia aud all Eastern  Russia,    is   ripe   for   harvesting.     The  traffic  iu Siberia and Eastern  Russia is  increasing faster than even tlie advocates  of the great Transsiberian road anticipated.    The  Ob,   ono   of   the   world's   big  rivers, emptying through the gulf of Ob  into the Arctic  ocean, lias 102  steamers  and  200 tugs  running already.    On the  Yenisei  ten   steamers  carry the   mails  regularly.     The  months  of  both  these  rivers were .visited last summer by English and Russian ships.    This proves the  practicability of connecting Eastern and  Western  Siberia with Europe by water.  The mouth of the _Ob is to be  deepened  and wharves  are  to be  built.    On  the  coast of the Usuri country there is regular pos.tal communication between Nicola-  ���jevsk,     Vladivostok     and     intervening  places, as well as connection with Japanese ports and Port Arthur.    From Odessa  aud   St.  Petersburg  to   various  Asiatic  ports runs   the so-called  volunteer fleet,  established  in  1S7S.      It   has   fourteen  steamers, with 115,500 tons displacement.  In war they can be armed ; iu peace they  carry freight, travelers, immigrants and  troops.  The Dutch Dream and Hope.

A few of the  poorer Dutch, men who havo nothing to  lose, may go up to the Transvaal, but the  bulk will do nothing, bul will watch how  events turn. out. But the moment these  men heard we had any sort of a reverse,  they would think the hour had come to  sti'ike for the real, though unavowed, object of tho J3ond, a South African Dutch  republic. No responsible Dutchman in  the colony will shoulder his rifle to fight  for it purely Transvaal affair; but their  own dream is a whole and united republic of their own, with the EnglislTas their  subjects, a vast South African republic,  stretching from the Limpopo to Cape  Agulhas, a republic in which the Dutch,  and the Dutch only, shall reign supreme,  and the despised Englishman be treated  as half-caste, hardly better than the  Kaffirs. Rut few people in England  realize this. It is no mere question between the Imperial government and the  South African republic. It is a question  which  virtually affects  the relationship  FULL LINE OF  between Great Britain aud her South  African colonies. Every Afrikander,  evei'y Boer, does realizes this fully. The  time has come when England must decide  whether she will maintain her power in  South Africa, or give it up for ever."  Name to be Changed.  Kamloops Sentinel.  Major-general Ilutton, accompanied by  lieutenant-colonel Peters, D.O.C., and captain Bell, inspected the Kamloops rifle  corps, on the exhibition grounds, last  Friday evening. lie complimented the  men on their appearance, saying that  they were the smartest lot he had so far  seen in this province. The general stated  that the name of the corps Avas to be  changed to the Rocky Mountain Rangers.

C, consisting of the  "Ajax," "Gold Drop Fraction," and  "Lookout Fraction."  There are several ledges running  through the claims, on one of which a  large amount of development work has  been done on the "Ajax" claim. These  claims are credited with having the  Tamarac lead which, together with the  showings made upon the Ajax, should  make the shares of the company  desirable as an investment. The  directors have decided to offer a block  of 50,000 pooled treasury shares  for sale at one cent until Saturday,  October 21st, 1889, the proceeds to be  used in completing a crosscut tunnel  now being driven to cut the ledge.  There is a good opportunity to make a  ready turn in the purchase of these  shares at the price quoted. For further particulars apply to  Alex Stewart, Broker  P. Q. Box 69, Nelson, B.
