 HOSTILITIES   HAVE   ACTUALLY  Commenced in South Africa.  Capetown, October 18.-4:05 p. m.-~  Tho entire crew of the' armored train,  with the exception of the engineer, were  made prisoners by the Boers.  London, October 13.���Advices from  Johannesburg report tlie connnandering  by the Transvaal government of another  25,000 ounces of gold.  The duke of Marlborough last ovening  addressed a mass meeting at Oldham.  In his speech the duke justified the policy  of tlio government, which, he declared?  had not been driven into war by overexcited enthusiasm  or  unwise agitation.  Winston Churchill, who spoke at the  same meeting, said he felt no animosity  towards the Boers iii connection with  Majuba Hill. "We were worsted," said  Mr. Churchill, "in a fair fight, and I hope  now there Avill be an evening up. Tho  government throughout have displayed  admirable patience, but there is ample  evidence of the existence of a'deliberate  cousph'acy against British supremacy,  and Great Britain has been practicing  patience on the top of a powder magazine."  Hiram Stevens Maxim, chief engineer  and director of the Maxim-Nordeufeldt  Gun Company, Limited, in tlie course of  ai\ interview today .said: "So far as J  am aware, the Boei's possess thirty Maxims, but the British need not fear the  Boer artillery, whieli lias always proved  a source of weakness rather than strength  to the burgliers."  After warmly approving the armored  train, and pointing out how useful they  had beeu to the Americans in the Philippines, he went on to say:  "The Boers remind me of people  of the Southern- States of America.  They are excellent marksmen and as good  fighters as can be found anywheie in the  world; however," no one ever fought  better than the Southerners and yet they  lost. Just so will England vanquish the  Boers. If you wish to know what the  English speaking races can do, look across  tlie Atlantic and see -what America has  done."     ��  - Bi,ohmf*onti"in, Octobei* 13.���Martial  law"has been proclaimed, and the courts  tire closed. A proclamation has been  issued warning British subjects to leave  the Orange Free State before 0 o'clock  Saturday evening. Permits to remain  may be obtained from tho authorities, and the proclamation calls  upon the burgliers to respect those "who  secure such permits. President Stay it has  made a strong appeal to tlie burghers to  \ do their best to preserve", the independence of the republic. .  The original conventions have been  twisted and turned by Great Britain as  a means of exercising tyranny in the  Transvaal for which no return injustice  has been done in the past. No gratitude  has been shown-for indulgence to,British  residents who legally have forfeited their  lives ' and property. Compliance with  England's demands would be. equivalent  to the loss of independence, gained by  the loss of blood- and. tears of many  years. British troops are concentrating  on the borders of Transvaal to compel  by terrorizing compliance with the claims  and crafty plans of those whose motive  is love of gold. Realizing 'which, while  acknowledging the honor of thousands  of Englishmen who abhor deeds of robbery and violence, the Free State execrates the wrongful deeds of British  statesmen.  "Burghers of the Free State, stand up  as one man. against the oppression and  violation of right."  -The proclamation is signed "Steyn,"  _and_ is dated October 11th.   London  ,m��%0g&ky  miwd  SATURDAY MORNING, OCTOBER U,  1899.  PUBLISHED AT NELSON, BRITISH COLUMBIA,  DAILY (BY MAIL) $6 A YEAR; WEEKLY, $2.  The following telegrams liave been delayed iu transmission.  Capktown, October 12.���No news of  fighting has yet been received. An American citi/.en has sworn to an affidavit  before the American consul here, in which  he states that he has been subjected by  burghers of tho Free State to great ill-  treatment. His limbs bears marks showing the effects of the treatment he  received.  Simonstown, October 12.���The com-  jiiander-in-chief issued a general signal  for the fleet Inst evening. The Transvaal  brigade is ready to disembark,'and is now  busy with preparations for landing. A  baggage train was kept waiting all night  for the brigade. Admiral Harris h.is notified the inhabitants that 'shore boats,  approaching the warships at night, are  liable to be fired upon.  JoHANNB.s��URG, October 12.���War was  declared yesterday. The formal declaration occurred at 10 o'clock this morning.  Vryijurg, Cape Colony, October 12.��� ,  Afternoon.���A body  of Boers  have  cut"  the Border fence, advanced  to  the  rail-  w.ay and cut the telegraph wires.    Two  thousand Boers are now  occupying  the  railroad line.  Capetown, October 12. ��� President  Steyn of the Orange Free State has issued a proclamation to the Free State  burghers,'in which'he says: "Our sister  republic is about to be attacked by an  unscrupulous enemy, who has long looked  for a pretext to annihilate the Afrikanders. Our peopleare bound to the Trans-  vall by ties as well as by formal  treaty.  The expeiieuce of the past shows no  reliance can be placed upon the solemn  promises and obligations of Great Britain,  when an administration is at the helm  that is prepared to stamp treaties under,  foot.  THE WAR IN THE PHILIPPINES  Another American Success.  Manila, October 13.���Major Cheatham,  witli a scouting party, while marching  along tlie west shore of the hike, encountered a force of rebels, strongly entrenched at Muntinulupa. Major Cheatham reports that he drove the rebels from  their position, ami that in the engagement three Americans were killed and  two wounded.  Rumors are in circulation in Manila  tliat major Cheatham discovered thi-ee  American prisoners, who had been bound,  gagged, and shot to death. Tliese rumors, however, are not confirmed.  Reports "having reached the provost  marshall that arms were concealed at the  headquarters of .the Dominican friars, a  large building adjoining the palace, a detachment of soldiers made a search of the  building. They found a small stock of  mausers, revolvers and ammunition, which  was confiscated, despite the protests of  the friars that the arms were not intended for unlawful use. General Schwan  with infantry has reached Bacceer. The  troops are greatly exhausted, having had  one of the hardest marches of the campaign. From Malabon to Perese they  marched .through rice fields.  SHORT BITS OI* NELSON NEWS.  October 13.���A dispatch from  Durban dated Thursday, October 12th,  (morning), announce that the Boers  seized Albertiua station and demanded  the keys, which were delivered by the  station master, who reached Ladysmith  on a trolley car.  Albertiua is a station in the Orange  Free State on the line between Har-  risraith and Ladysmith.  The excitement at Ladysmith is in-  creasingj and the troops are ready to act  at a.moinent's notice. It is now definitely known that the British government  sent no final proposals to Pretoria. Tho  Transvaal's ultimatum forestalled that  intention.  London, October 13.-���Dispatches from  Capetown say tliat no doubt is felt as to  the loyalty of Lerothodi and other native  cjiiefs, and the Basutos are still well in  hand, but the resident commissioner has  decided to patrol the border in order to  prevent raids.  The Pall Mall Gazette publishes the  following* dispatch from Mafekiug, dated  Wednesday: "It is reported that the  younger burghers, dissatisfied With commandant Crojije for hot ��� attacking the  British position yesterday, have sent him  to the rear and appointed auother to  command." .  London, October 13:���-According to the  Kimberley correspondent of the Daily  Telegraph, Cecil Rhodes had a narrow  escape from capture while on his way  here, His train was delayed, and he  passed the Modder river three hours  after the expiration of the ultimatum,  when the Boers were only five miles distant, and some of their spies were actually on the platform. Mr. Rhodes laid  low ��� and was not:. recognized. Had he  been, his capture would have been easy,  as the line was not defended.  THE    CANADIAN   CONTINGENT  For South Africa.  Ottawa, October 13.���The cabinet is in  session today, and the premier informed  the Associated Press correspondent that  he expected to be able to make an official  announcement this evening. rThere appears to be ouly one opinion in the cab-  inetin regard to a Canadian contingent,  and that is that it should be sent. There  may be some difference ��of opinion - as to  details and the form that tlie contingent  will take. The imperialist" view is that  Canada ought to put in tlie front at the  Transvaal a regiment fully equipped and  paid for at the expense of the Canadian  people. That would involve millions and  necessitate the calling of parliament.  Britain does' uot ask for this, as already  pointed out in this correspondence/but  for a' small contingent, with no higher  officer than ..major; at the same time offers  to pay the cost, as was done for the Nile  contingent. When it is all arranged, it  will most probably take a .form somewhat  similar to what was done on that occasion.   No one will object to this.  Placed Under America's Protection.  Washington, October 13.���Notice came  to the state department in the shape of a  note from Mr. Tower, iu charge of the  embassy here, that the details of the  transfer of the British interests in case  of war had beeu previously arranged, so  allthatwas-necessary-wjis'the "despatch"  of a brief cablegram to Mi*. Maerum at  Pretoria. He, of course, is the superior  in rank to the other consular representatives of the United States, not only in  the Transvaal, but in the Orange Free  State, and he has been instructed to give  these officials the necessary directions.  Either Party Could Elect Dewey.  Moxtprmbr, Vermont, October 13.���  Senator Proctor, in an interview on the  candidacy of admiral Dewey for the  presidency, said that whatever party  nominated him would be almost sure to  elect him. "If Dewey weie a republican  candidate for president," said senator  Proctor, "I should vote for liim, as would  every other republican. If he were the  democratic candidate, I should not vote  for him."         Want- to Protect the Mines.  Berlin, October 13.���The German Foreign Office informs the Associated Press  that Germany would gladly co-operate in  a courteously, though urgently, worded  request to the Transvaal government to  permit the creation of an international  police force to protect the mines.  Telegraphic Dispatches Delayed,  Owing to the C, P. R. telegraph wires  being down near Revelstoke, tlie Associated Press telegrams* last night were  meagre, and consisted chiefly of South  African dispatches which had been delayed in transmission.  Glove Fight'in New York.  New York, October 13.���"Kid" Mc-  Partlaud of this city was given the decision, on points, over Owen Zeigler of  Philadelphia after twenty-five rounds of  hard and fast fighting before the Broadway Athletic Club tonight.  Thei'e is a small docket for the county  court on Monday, only thirteen cases being set down for hearing, of which several will be settled out of court. The  supreme court list is longer than usual,  tliere being sixteen suits entered^for  trial.  W. J. Goepel and Mrs. Goepel returned  to Nelson yesterday from Victoria, where  Mr. Goepel had been acting as auditor-  general for six weeks.  Dr. LaBau was .taken suddenly ill yesterday with heart trouble. Dr. Forin ordered him to bed, as an apoplectic seizure  was feared. However, later on iii the  afternoon, the doctor was well enough to  go out.  G. C. Hoclge says there is no kick coming between the telephone' company and  the city,as to the fixing'of the, poles." It  was on, his suggestion that one, of the  poles was removed further from the hydrant, on Baker street;, and the incident  referred to in yesterday's Miner is -incorrect. " The "Nelson Electric 'Tramway  Company are putting up the poles for the  telephone company, under tiie supervision of Mr. Hodge.  New Denver Ledge; "Ed Athertdu and  Bob McDonald live in adjoining houses in  Sandon. On Sunday their wives gave  birth to boys and both dads are confident  that they have tlie finest boy ever born  in the shadows of the Selkirks surrounding jSlocau's silvery Sandon."  The strike of the machinists on the  C. P. R. main line west of Winnipeg is  likely to end-within a few days, the men  getting what they asked, that is, recognition of their union and an adjustment  of the scale of wages.  The Phoenix News by J. W. Grier is the  latest newspaper ventureinthe Boundary.  The News is well printed and well edited,  and it is to bo hoped that ib will succeed  in choking off Eber C. Smith from inflicting one of his newspapers on the people  of that town.,  Ou~Sunday~the~ local~miiitia��� company  will attend the morning services at St.  Paul's Presbyterian church. In the evening, the first of a series of sermons to  young men will be delivered. Subject:  "Are Religion and Business Compatible?"  Although there is no money on hand,  the city might scuffle a few planks with  which to replace the broken ones in the  Hall-street wharf.  Owing to the change in the running  time of trains on the main line of the  Canadian' Pacific railway, there will bo  no train out of Nelson on Sunday morning. Passengers for Trail, Rossland, and  points on the main line can leave this afternoon at 3.45, or tomorrow ovening at  0 o'clock.  Judge Spinks of Vernon is registered  at tlie Phair.  Editor Lowery of the New Denver  Ledge is at the Royal.  J. H. Bowes, barrister, returned last  night from a trip to England. He also  visited Paris.  .  The Liberal 'Association should take up  the matter of inadequate postal facilities  in this section with Hon. Mr. Fisher and  Mi'. Bostock While they are here. From  reports, the service between Nelson Jind  outlying towns Is as bad now as it was  nine years ago.  Hereafter, The Tribune will be issued  on Mondays instead of Sundays. This is  because Kaslo, Sandon, New Denver,  Three Forks, Silverton, Slocan City, Cascade, and Grand Forks cannot be reached  on Sunday.   ______________  Gamblers Quit Vancouver.  Vancouver, October 13.���As a result  of the city police persecution and threatened 'further-proceedings, the professional  gamblers : who latterly infested Vancouver have hurriedly departed, en  masse, almost at a moment's'notice.  EXPORTS  OF  1899  COMPARED  With Exports of 1898,  : On Wednesday morning The Trihune  published a statement of the imports of  the port of Nelson for the quarter ending  September   30th,   which  showed  an  increase of over HO per cent in   tho collections of the port  as  against  the  corresponding quarter in 1808.  The statement  of the exports for the quarter was completed yesterday.    It gives an even more  emphatic denial to tlie blue-ruin stories  of. tho newspapers  published  in  the  interests of the mine owners' associations.  During  the  quarter   ending  September  30th, 1899, tlie value of the exports  was  $280,288,    Of this  total  the  product  of  the mine was valued at $280,439, which.  included gold bullion valued at $58,730.  The  other items  were:  the  forest  $34,  animals and their produce $102, agricultural  products   $23,   and manufactures  $5030.    For the corresponding quarter in  1898 the total value of the exports  was  $132,030, which shows the' value  of exports for   the quarter just closed to be  about 125 per cent greater than the value  :for the corresponding quarter in  1898.  Of the export  value  of $132,030, which  was   returned for   1898,  the mine contributed $128,423 as against $280,439 for  the quarter  just closed,  Avhile animals  and the products and manufactures contributed $3007 as against $5792 for 1899.  When the customs returns for a quarter  '.show an.increase.bf fifty per cent in the  value of the imports and an  increase of  about 125 per cent in the  value  of the  'exports,it will be difficult to make 'reason-/*  able men believe that the chief industry  of the district is at a standstill.  strengthen them and develop the country into a really more independent status  than it now enjoys. Canada and Australia are British colonies, yet tliey enjoy  as perfect self-government in all domestic affairs sis the Transvaal can hope for,  and they have not hesitated on occasion  to "talk back" to the mother country as  firmly as "Oom Paul" himself. In bi-icf,  there seems little reason to supposo that  at most the enfranchisement-of tlie Out-  landers would put the Transvaal Boers in  any worse plight than the Dutch of Cape  Colony have been in for many a year.  And there is no possible question that  the latter are a great deal better oil'in all  respects than the former.  Another Fizzle.  THE   OUTLANDERS.  New York Tribune.  On two or three points concerning the  Outlanders of the Transvaal confusion of  ideas seems  to exist and contradictory  statements  to be made.    Mr. Kruger  is  reported to have said l.ast week that the  British demand   for  Outlander   enfranchisement could not' be  granted, because  ;there were more Outlanders than Boers,-  and to enfranchise them would therefore  be to put the country under their control.    In that very statement he confess-  "ed^n the-clearest manner that the Transvaal-is not a republic, but an oligarchy;  in"which the minority rules the majority.  And then he added thatthe Outlanders  do not really want the franchise,   and  will not accept it'when it is offered  to  them.   In that case, what* danger is there  in  offering  it?     And' how   would   tlie  granting  of it imperil the, autonomy of  the  country?      Either the   Outlanders  want the franchise, and mean tp exercise  it*and become  citizens of the-Trausvaal,  or they do not.    If the former, then, according to Mr. Kruger's own admission,  they ought to have the franchise if the  Transvaal  is to  be a true republic.    If  tlie latter,  it surely would* do no harm to  offer them   what they   are   certain   to  decline.  It is also often said that the Outlanders, who were chiefly attracted thither  bythe discovery of gold, are mere adventurers, who have no lasting interest in  the country and mean to get out of it as  soon as they have "made tlieir pile." Tf  that were true we should scarcely think  -they-would-care-much-abou t-revolution���  iziug the political status of the country,  as the Boers fear they will do. If they  were not going to stay tliere it would not  matter to them whether the land were  made a British province or not. But  there is good ground for questioning that  estimate of them. Doubtless some of  them arc mere wanderers. But the history of California and of Australia  proves that the groat majority of gold-  seekers become permanent settlers, and  that mining camps grow into enduring  communities- of varied interests and industries. At least such is the rule whomever soil and climate favor such a course.  Assuredly thoy do favor it in the Transvaal. It does not seem reasonable to  suppose that the moment the output of  gold begins to lessen there will be a universal exodus from a country where the  soil is of unsurpassed productiveness and  the climate one of the most perfect in the  world...  Again, there is tlie theory that the  Outlanders ajt*e all snobs and toadies, who  Want' to aboHsh all republican institutions and have the country ruled by a  Czar, or at best by an antiquated {house  of lords. The best answer to that is offered by tlie examples already cited.  We know of no more truly republican or  democratic state in this union than California, which has been developed from a  series of mining camps. Nor in that vast  republic which is called the British Empire is there a more jealous and unwavering democracy than in the mining colonies of Australia. Indeed, because of their  very origin and nature, mining camps are  essentially and necessarily democratic.  The addition of the Outlanders to the  citizenship of the Transvaal would therefore not be likely to menace in the least  the integrity of republican institutions.  On  tho   contrary,   it    would   probably  New York, October 13.���The winds  asleep in the caves and a coverlet of fog  drawn over the bosom of the drowsy  ocean today, lengthened the unprecedented record of flukes in a cup contest,  number six. As on Tuesday, the yachts  ;did not le.ave tlieir anchorage .inside of  Sandy Hook. It was useless to make another attempt in such weather; so, at  tlie hour set for the start, the regatta  committee boat poked out to sea through  the dense vapor of fog and announced to  the group of vessels the same old monotonous story, that there would be no  race today. Everybody is , thoroughly  disgusted. The patience of the public is  almost exhausted. From 50,000 people,  who went out on the first day, the  crowds have dwindled down until it is  safe to say that less than 5000 people  were afloat today. Tlie repeated postponements have also worn the patience  of the committee and the owners of -the  two yachts to shreds.   .  BIG DEAL IN MINING SHARES  The Bonanza of Phoenix.  From Grand Forks comes the report  that the biggest deal ever made in the  shares of Old Ironsides, the bouanza mine  of Phoenix camp, lias just been closed.  Jay P. Graves, S. H. S. Miner, W.H. Robinson and A. L. White have bought 80,-  000 shares of stock, owned by S. E. Rigg  and D. Cook. Both Messrs. Rigg and  Cook live in Beatrice, Nebraska. The  present market price of Old Ironsides  stock is about $1.15. The exact price  paid to Messrs. Rigg and Cook is not  known, but Was, perhaps, not far from  the market quotation���certainly not less  than $1 por share./ The purchasers are  well known Ironsides people. Mi'. Graves  is the president and general manager of  the company; Mr. Miner is a director,  and was already a lai-ge stockholder, as  lie is in all the Graves mining properties;  Mr. Robinson is prominently connected  with ��� the "Eastern Townships Bank, and  Mi1. White is the head of the brokerage  firm of A. L. White & Co. of Montreal,  and is secretary of the Ironsides company.  Pink Pill Money in Kootenay Mines.  G. T. Fulford of Brockville, who is -re-:  puted to be the largest shareholder in the  Yellowstone mine, and also one of Canada's   most   enterprising business   men,  has returned    home  after  an  extended  trip to this province.    He is best known"  as the proprietor of Dr. Williams'Pink  Pills, a patent medicine of acknowledged  note.     Years, ago,  Mr.  Fulford    was a  druggist in Brockville, and he began selling patent medicines.     He appreciated  the  advantages  of   advertising,  and is  now the 'millionaire! proprietor.of .'several  nerve  tonics  and  medicines for 'general  debility, which have .'a:-world-wide-celebrity.    He spends a million dollars every,  year in advertising.  Sixty  Price.  LIBERAL  ASSOCIATION   MEETS  Hon. Fisher and H. Bostock's Visit.

Were  alderman Beer and Fletcher straightforward men, they would acknowledge that  they had'not the slightest idea as to how  the business of the city was being conducted. Tliey are the men that should  be held responsible, for they arrogated to  themselves the duties and responsibilities  of all their colleagues, the mayor included.  The membership of miners' unions  should be confined stiictly to men who  work at'mining for a livelihood. The recent annual meeting1 of the 'Canadian In-,  stitute of-Mining'Engineers at,Nelson  showed how tlje"standing and -usefulness  of a society can be impaired by admitting  as members men who have no special  training or fitness for the business which  the society is intended to foster and pro-  mole. The jniners' unions of Kootenay,  aud Yale cannot be too careful in admitting members.  It is claimed .that tlie mine owners of  the Slocan do not object to paying  miners $3.50 per day, but that they do  object to such sudden changes in the laws  that affect the mining industry. They  claim that laws that .aiTeefc existing  economic conditions should not be suddenly sprung; that intended legislation  in that direction should be made known  a month or two before the legislature  meets, so as to give the people a chance  to discuss and understand its bearings.  Most people will agree with the mine  owners in tliis. There is no cpiestion but  that-much-legisla_ion"rDoiiTiiiibii as~w_ll~  WHOLESALE  SASH AND DOORS.

Call and get your  eyes examined at  JACOB DOVER'S The Jeweler j  as provincial, is hastily passed; but once  it is passed it should be given a fair trial  before its repeal is demanded. Unjust  laws seldom remain long on the statute  books. If it is found that the eight-hour  law is injurious to the mining industry,  then it can be repealed. But the only  way to prove that it is injurious is to  work the mines. This the Slocan mine  owners, through their managers, refuse  to do. As long as they refuse, tliey have  no standing in coui't.  With the Slocan Star, one of the best  developed of the Slocan mines, working a  full force, it is not likely that the other  producing mines in that district will remain "dead" for any length of time. It  is not unlikely that the Slocan Star will  be shipping .$5000 worth of ore a day be-  fore snow Hies.  HUDSON'S BAY  COMPANY.  INCORPORATED 1670.  Just Received...

Thoro tire mon of whom it can be truly  said tliat they could be'eqnally  suecess-  full in some otliei' walk of life  than tluit  which they elected to follow.    Not so sir  Redvei's Duller.    A born soldier, it would  be   impossible  to  imagine   him   in   any  civilian profession, for although his qualities of head are  by no means  his least  gifts,  it  was -only on  active service he  could display that splendid bravery, that  willingness   to risk  his life for his comrades, whieli, coupled with  indomitable  determination and all   the other  characteristics    necessary to  produce  a great  soldier, have gained for him  the reputation  which   will  ever  liiake his name a  conspicuous one in British military annals.  In appearance sir Red vers i.r- a typical  leader of men.  with that massive,  yet  well-formed, figure which denotes great  physical  strength, and as  keen a pair of  eyes as ever shone in a human countenance���or   reviewed troops.    Nothing  escapes his notice; and   if  he says little,  ���possibly he thinks the more.    However,  lie is a regular martinet where his profession is concerned, as those who serve under him are well aware; but officers and  men who do their duty to the very best  of their ability can feel assured Duller is  mentally noting the fact, and that when  the  time comes to  push them  on, they  will  not  be   forgotten.    As  sir. lied vers  -has ascended the ladder of success, so too,  in  a lesser degree,   have several officers  with wjiom he served years ago, when he  promptly gauged their capability and devotion to duty.  . No soldier of the "fair and easy" type  finds favor with him. A very hard  worker himself, he has no interest in men  who are not as keen about work as,lie is.  -Sir Red vers began his career in-the  00th .Rifles, which he joined some forty  years ago, and his first campaign was  with that regiment in China, the time of  the sacking of the Summer palace at  Ppkin. Then came the Red [liver expedition, in wnich he took part with distinction ; while in '7*3 he accompanied lord  Wolselcy to the Gold Coast when the  Ashanteo war broke out, and it wtis then  that the name of Duller began to be a  familiar one to the goneral public.  By his own desire he wcut with the  advanced guard to .larbinbah. Knowing  danger was ahead, and although he was  wounded at the battle of Ordaheu���that  did not deter him from continuing iu'harness until the capture of Oooniassie.  Over and over again he was mentioned in  the despatches for plucky acts; however  _it_was_sevoraLyeai'sJater_before-he-could-  write after his name the two letters much  coveted by the British soldier. Sir lied-  vers, then major Duller, had been appointed depnty-adjutant-general at the  Horse (autii'ds; but immediately the Zulu  war ejiine on the tapis he voluiitecfed,  Hot being the kind: of inan to stay con'  tentedly in Whitehall when active service was to be had for tlie* asking. So to  Ziituhiiid lie went, find was given coiili  inand of the -cavalry rtt Zlpbiiiio nnd Ivain-  bula, the Fronte*!* Tuight Horse toeing liis  OWll -CQl'lSSi.  The ihemorable * dtiy when sit* Rddver.s  won the Viofcoi'ia Cross saw some ofthe  fiercest fighting during the campaign.  The Inhlobane Moniltaiu was tlio sceite  of the coil fl let, iind its precipitous -eastern  .side was by no nieans an ideal battlefield, nor a ploasi'ixt*' place from wliich to  ���retreat, as the surrounding country was  unknown to our troops, whom the enemy  greatly outnumbered. Om* men had to  ascend this mountain in the dim light of  early 'dawn-, and the man to lead the way  was Duller.    Later, iu the thick of.the  LODGE   MEETINGS.

But Huller, dashing into the midst  of the crowd, succeeded in rescuing him  ���though, alas! the unfortunane fellow  was killed before the day closed. However, this feat was only the beginning of  a. series of gallant acts, each in itself suHi-  cient to gain the bron/.e medal bearing  the simple words, "For Valour," which  sir Red vers" is privileged to wear.  Having fought for many hours, the order to "retreat" was given, and the difficulties attending its fulfilment "were soon  painfully evidenced, the only possible  wtiy of gaining-the plains being by the  dangerous goat-paths running along the  ledges of the rocks. Sir Red vers, finding  it was necessary to have the retreat covered, stationed lieutenant Kveritt with  seven men nev.v the top of the mountain,  where the little band succeeded in keeping back the'enemy until our troops were  within measurable distance of level  ground, [when tliey began their own  descent. The-Zulus, thirsting for their  blood, rapidly pursued them, and four  out of the eight men fell. By. this time  they had gone a considerable distance,  .and were not far behind the rear-guard,'-  where Buller, careless, of danger'as usual,  was conspicuous as the very last man.  Suddenly, lieutenant Everitt's horse  was killed, and the unfortunate officer  seemed fated to fall into the hands of the  Zulus; but sir Red vers, on the alert for  casualties, galloped back just in time to  pull "liim out of reach of the pursuers;  and bidding him run on as fast as he  could, and taking his carbine from him,  Buller tind tho three remaining soldiers  kept the Zulus at bay until lieutenant  I_voritt was safe. Then, while sir Red-  vers was riding after the troops, he found  n man whose tired horse refused to carry  him a step farther, and making him  mount behind, brought him to the front  after which Buller quickly rode back to  his former place iu the rear.    '        / *  Modest, almost to a,fault, neither de-'  siring nor receiving public applause, sir.  Red vers lias "found himself more than  once ou Jus return home, an object of  public attention, but, owing to his lack of  genialty, his "stand-offishness" (to coin a  word), and his utter disregard of things  ���often trivial in themselves���whieh insure popularity, he has never been, a  popular personage; though 'admiration,  respect, and trust are freely accorded to  him.  But, although sir Red vers uever desired to become a hero,.he could not fail  to be gratified at the spontaneous act of  the people of Devon (his native county)  who, on his return from one of his campaigns, presented him with a magnificent  piece of plate as a token of admiration  for their fellow-comiti-ymau. It is solid  silver, several feet in height, ajid was  specially designed for the occasion. Sir  Red vers, by-the-byc, who is a son of the  late John Weutworth Buller. M. P., is  lord of the manor of Crediton, and also  owns a considerable amount of landed  property near Exeter, and in Cornwall.  In fact, he is a wealthy man, and, it may  be added, comes of ti good family.   pSir^e"d-vers~\vtis~~giveii charge of the  intelligence department iu the Egyptian  war, and took a prominent part in  the  FOR SALE  BUSINESS AND RESIDENTIAL  PROPERTY  30 hy 120; Hakor street, between Josophtijd and  Ward streets  ..,.,���,... , ...$8000  50 by l20j Baker street, between Josephine and Hall  streets, corner.......................................  23 by 120 with imprdvomonts, south side of Vornoii  street.;.*. ...'.  ,.......,, ,.5000  30 by 120 With impifQvomohtA south sido pf Vernon  street............  -.. .....j.......%i..  6000  2i lots with cottage rented at $15 per month, Victoria  Street.............  3500  2 lots with eottago routed at #20 per month, Stanley  street  :  3000  OlotSin block 4JD, all cleared andfbiicedln. ., 2500  AGENTS POR  J. &, U.

It was when the news of the hitter's  death reached the headquarters staff  that Buller showed au emotion which  astonished his companions, for a display  of feeling was about the last thing expected from a man whom a Avar correspondent once described as "silent, saturnine and bloodthirsty!" But, between  Buller and the l'epresentatives of the  press accompanying our armies, there is  little love lost.  Yet once more did sir Red vers save a  comrade from death at the risk of his  own life. Captain D'Arey, having the misfortune to lose his horse during the retreat,  was endeavoring to out-run thoadvancing  Zulus, who, however, got to within a  hundred yards of him, when Buller giving  him a seat on his saddle, soon put a more  satisfactory distance between the pursuers and the pursued.  Truly a wonderful record this for a  man to accomplish in a few hours. That  night, Avhen the heroic little army was  encamped on the plains, news Avas  brought that several stragglers, fallen  out of the ranks through fatigue, were  some miles away, trying with difficulty  to reach the camp, and as the enemy Avas  not far off, their i^ositiou was decidedly  critical. Sir'Redvers instantly announced  his intention of going in quest of these  men, and accompanied by a few kindred  spirits, started ou his errand of mercy,  returning ere long Avith ten or twelve  troopers, Avho, left to their own devices,  must assuredly liave perished. Then  Buller took his Avell-earned repose. He  had been in the saddle, AA'ith only the  briefest intervals for refreshment, nearly  four days, and during that time taken  part in tAvo engagements and marched  over one hundred miles.  Naturally anything approaching cowardice would call forth his unmeasured  scorn, as was exemplified the day the  prince "imperial's death Avas reported to  sir Redvers by the unfortunate officer in  Avhose company the prince had been; the  query, "But how is it that you are still  FULL LINE OF  Front Doors  Inside Doors  Screen Doors  Windows  Inside Finish  local and coast.

A keen sportsman, sir Redvei-'s chief  recreations .are hunting, shooting and  fishing, though of late years he is often  too immersed in professional matters to  indulge in his favorite pastimes. During  the five years he was adjutant-general  at the War Oflice he devoted a A'ast  amount of time and thought to the  British army, its condition and needs.  He is essentially a soldier of the progressive type, and is supposed to be in  favor of conscription, though lie has not  actually expressed that opinion, and the  most hardened "interviewer" Avould  scarcely venture to jjut the question to  him direct.  Straightforwai'd, just and clear-sighted,  sir Redvers was eminently suited for the  special duty lie Avas asked to undertake  in the thick of the Irish hind agitation,  when the government sent him as "commissioner" to Kerry���then in a very dis-'  turbed state���to inquire into tlie grievances of the tenants and endeavor to  bring about an amicable settlement between then! and the landlords. It says  much for the kindness Avhich undoubtedly  exists beneath a stern exterior, that he  did all iu his power to prevent evictions;  and, though feeling ran far too high on  both sides for a pacification to haAre  much chance of succeeding, sir Redvers.  while in Ireland, never relaxed his efforts  towards restoring friendly relations.  Since he obtained his commission, Buller  has been in every notable AArar engaged  in by his countiy, while no man in the  service can boast a better array of  medals.

"Wo aie not -willing,under any circumstances, to even try to run shops in a  whisky town," writes president James J.  Hill of the Great Northein railway to  sheriff Cole of Spokane. Not only this,  but Mr. Hill further announces that if  the agitation for incorporation does not  cease, the shops will be moved away from  the town of Hillyard, which is a suburb  of Spokane.  A petition is being circulated pi'otest-  ing against the granting of a music-hall  license. The bylaw which is objected to  will come up for l-econsideration at the  next l'egular meeting of the council,  one week IVom Monday evening. It is  said that n. majority of the council will  bo in favoi- of postponing any further  action until a vote of the people has been  taken upon it.  City clerk Strachan has received word  from pi'emier Semlin to the effect that as  soon as the necessary forms ai-e made out  he will issue an order for the admission  of Heui'y Murton into the Old Men's  Home at Kamloops. Murton is at present an inmate of tlie Kootenay Lake  general hospital, as he is unable to do  any kind of work.  John Miles will come before mayor  Neelands this morning upon a charge of  assault preferred .against him by A. E.  Storey. The row Started in Tamblyn's  liquor store. The complainant's story is  that Miles struck him and ordered him  out of the premises, after which Storey  struck out and knocked Miles down.  Ian Coltart, business manager of  Hewitt Bostock's printing office in Victoria, was in Nelson yesterday on his  way home from an outing in Manitoba,  which he says is a very prosperous country this year, the crops being plentiful  and harvested in good condition. He  ^ays that Mackenzie'& Mann's Dauphin  railway runs through what is proving  to be a line countiy. Mr. Coltart also  says that the Doukhobors are not liked  by tlie English-speaking settlers in that  section, aud that there is a strong feeling  against them.  "Andy" Campbell, who for a year gave  the city good service in making streets,  but who is now a resident of Phoenix,  ono of the coming towns of the Boundary  country, came in last night to hear the  latest war news.    Mr. Campbell says the  BUSINESS   MENTION.  growth   of  Phoenix  is   retarded   by the  scarcity of lumber.  A. L. Knox, who for a time published  the Ymir Miner, has left for Soutli Africa,  to act as a war coiTespondent for one of  the leading London dailies���so it is said.  The six-foot water wheel, which was  ordered by the city council for the purpose of driving the 2500-light dynamo,  arrived in Nelson yesterday. The arrival  ol* this wheel will enable the city to im-  pi-ove the electric light service much  sooner than was at lirst expected. The  new power should be available in about  a week.
