 /**&* CT -  4*3.  PLAIN DUTY OF THE BRITISH  To Resist Boer Aggression.  London,  October  17.���A  large crowd  waited in the precincts  of St. Stephen's  for  the  reassembling  of the  lords  and  commoners,  and  heartily welcomed the  favorites, especially Joseph Chamberlain,  secretory of state for the  colonies.    Tlie  Prince   of   Wales   was    loudly   cheered  while   driving   to   the  house   of   lords.  Within   the   house    cordial    receptions  marked  the  arrival of  Mr. Hal four and  the  other  members of the government.  The  house  listened   impatiently   to  the  usual   protest   by   Mr.  .Tames   Lowther  against the alleged interference  of peers  in elections, but Mr. Chamberlain's coming  put everybody in humor and was the signnl  f i r iv i inmense outburst of applause.   l.c  entered carrying ji big dispatch box.   Mr.  Balfour g.ivo notice of a,  motion   tomorrow that no  private  business  should be  taken up during the autumn session. The  speaker  then   read   the   queen's speech,  shortly after which sir Alfred Fuller Ac-  land   Hood,   Conservative   member   for  Wost .Somerset, rose to move the address  in reply.    He Avore the scarlet aud gold  uniform of a captain of the grenadiers.  Sir Alexander Hood said they had  never met in graver council, not only for  Soutli Africa, but for the whole empire.  Dwelling on the horrors of Avar, he declared that Avar should not be under-  ctaken except from absolute necessity, but  that, in this cfise, all other means had  failed, Avar had become necessary "to establish equal rights for the Avhite races  in South Africa and to remove the grievances of the Uitlanders." After reviewing the course of negotiations between  the British government and the Transvaal, he said that president Kruger by  his own act had removed all chance of  peace. After dwelling on the "splendid  offers of assistance made by the colonies,"  and " the necessity of maintaining Great  Britain paramount," he animadverted on  the defiant language of president Steyn  of the Orange Free State, declaring that  unless the question of British supremacy  Avas settled now. British, rule iu South  Africa would go. He asserted that the  British goA'erument, under exceptional  provocation, had shown great patience  and forbearance, and that Great Britain  had now ho option but to repel the  attack.    (Loud cheers).  Clement Molyneux Rhodes, Conservative member for- Richdale, seconded the  address. y  Sir Henry Campbell-Bjinuerman, Liberal leader iu the house of commons, avIio  3/  WEDNESDAY MORNING, OCTOBER 18, 1899.

A corps of experienced contineiital en-  gineers has left Pretoria for the borders  accompanied by a command of pickeel  Boer shots. It is probably intended for  large dynamiting operations. A big engagement is expected shortly in the vicinity of Ladysmith.  Capetoavn, October 17.��� A special eles-  - patch from Mafeking- says that- Jill  Avas  intact there up  to Saturday  night.

Professor  Cliuinley,    now a  scientist,  formerly  a barber, has just returned to  Pittsburg, Pennsylvania, from England,  where he'Satisfied his curiosity regarding  a literary matter tliat had  long puzzled  him.    He came  to America when a little  boy,  and   learned   the    barber's   trade.-  Like John A'. Bra-hear, who was formerly  a carpenter, and is now an astronomer  and expert maker of astronomical instruments, he was ambitious.    His shop lay  iu    a district   filled  with   Italian    and  Slavonic immigrants, who, on their -arrival, brought their own and their children's  heads to barber Ohuinley-for inspection  and  correction.    Chumley cast  about for the drugs suited to cure the ills  .that a HUcted tlieir scalps, and was thereby led to the study of chemistry; and insect life.   The wonderful construction of  hair cells and an accidentally overhead  'mention ,of the phrase "capillary attraction" induced  him to devote some of his  spare  time to acqiurihg  a knowledge  of.  .physics..   The search for a cure for bald-  ��� liess, carried him on. to the study of the  ��� human -scalp,   the   construction   of the  .head and then that of the 'body, so that  .lie became, an anatomist.    He learned all  about zoology iii seeking a connection between .��� mange   oii  animals   aiid   human  .'baldness.      In iisliprt,   when .- Ghumley's  ^'gi'audfatheri^  Is now prepared -to issue Drafts and Letters  of Credit on Sl^aguay, U. S., Atlin,, B. C, and  Dawson City, Yin\on, District.  whiskers are rather slow in coining. Yet  if you read Thackeray attentively you  will observe that the whiskers with  which he endows his heroes while they  are yet -children .are'invariably red or  reddish. It seems to me that-our author  is deserving of severe animadversion  for his want of tlie knowledge of the 'nature of the beard. And not only his  heroes are abnormally gifted Svitli hir-  sutene.ss; countless boys, particularly  lordlings, strut in their teens through his ���  pages, with whiskers dripping macassar  oil.  ������  MEXICO'S   GREAT   RULER.  ^. *^ecid^d 3 ^er-^t"y  sSffeilS&feii'-^  y^jl} tei-^tti rfiS: o^^liqn^  ^"^o^ji? ^--oraisV ��'; ���;���" ��� ysy:~ y'yy -i :i-;��v-y; i. ��������� ��� ����� y';.".';��-.

Yet  one may sometimes be pardoned for silent  incredulity. "Subtracting} 1880 from 1899  one. gets 69; yet few persons could see  president Porfi'rio Diaz of Mexico without running^ oyer the figures again to  make sure there is no mistake. It seems  incredible tliat he should be ou the verges  of three-score and ten. Yet he was born  in 1830, appropriately enough on the eve  of the birthday of Mexican independence;  September Kith. A man of fifty-five, with  speech as compelling, capillaries as ifreei  eyes as eagle-clear as Porfirio Diaz, is to  be envied. ;  A sti'angely romantic mixture, surely,'  is the career Of this soldierly figure who  has wrought such miracles in Mexico.}  An orphan nobody in a backwoods corner  of Mexico; a callow theologue; a green  law student, earning his -way througli a1  little Mexican instituto civil; a boyj  mayor of an Indian hamlet, wheedling  his aboriginal constituents into drilling  for fun, and then drilling them for busi-|  ness enough. to capture the capi tal of the;  the state .when an usurper' held at; a:  guerrilla chief inthe wasting wars of the  Eeforma, when stolid, stubborn, sound  but tactless Juarez "was trying to put-  the church between fences and keep it  $t-he��eS?tli^'B^  sthroiigtethat: iw^^  teo&pi-'ote.'-ited-'Saga  apoletiunttpoto  the friend and patron, the great Indian  pi-esident; and for nineteen years himself  ���president, ������of--the country he first gave  fair title to call itself a republic ; a field  officer as dashing as Funston, and of as  phenomenal exploits, but in fifty battles;  a man as self-made as our -rail-splitter���  here is certainly enough -'material for a  hero.  With a good deal of the Napoleonic in  sight, there is no suspicion of the selfishness, the coldness, or that certain atrophy  ���of humanity which marked Napoleon.  Ditiz is always human, always of that untranslatable quality his people call sim-  patico, for which we have no nearer approach than winning and magnetic. A  cool egoist might have whipped the  armies of Maximilian, but he never could  have fused Mexico into the .nation it is  today, and it is doubtful if he could even  have made the same record in war. It is  always to.be remembered as a sheer  historic truth that no man ever before on  any considerable scale conquered disciplined armies with so small and so nn--  licked an array of peons. Lexington is  not parallel, nor tiny other battle wherein  the raw recruits were Americans. Diaz  won his campaigns with material at  which the most sanguine of American*  frontier campaigners would simply gasp;  And while the Mexican rural is a fighter  of serious  accountability, there  were no  FULL LINE OF  rurales till Diaz made them, out of next  to nothing. A man is judged in win* and  state-cra.f__by the"materal with which he  has to work as well as by the gi'oss result. In relatively modern history the  only parallels of Diaz's military career  are furnished by Cortez and Pizarro.  Splendid as personal heroism is, it is  also, luckily for humanity, uncommon.  It is significant here particularly, because  without it and the direct hero-worship it  aroused, Diaz very certainly could not  have done his Larger work. The man  who led so many forlorn hopes against  superior numbers, discipline and arms;  who was brevetted with so many scars;  who could not only plan a eomolicated  campaign but win it inch by inch at the  head of his tatterdemalions, wlio spiked  the enemy's battery with his own hands,  in the heat of the battle; who served his  own guns when the last gunner had  fallen or run away; who dazzled his men  and his people as well by his personal in  fighting as by the endless ingenuity and  the inspiration by which he deceived or  shattered the enemy���that sort of man,  among any men who love red blood and  a steady hand, can get listeners after the  fight when he speaks quietly to citizens,  telling them of national righteousness,  mercy and a judgment to come.  To dispose of an entire car of high-class iron arid  brass beds in a western mining town in less than two  months is certainly a record to be proud of, and one  seldom equalled in the large eastern cities. 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 of the Rockies.  si^y  lu'ijl.  1   Front Doors  Inside Doors  Screen Doors  Windows  Inside Finish  local and coast.

Mine managers who imagine that they  ean successfully work union and nonunion men underground in their mines  should take a half day off and interview  some of the contractors in Nelson.

The  presentation was made at the Hotel  Phair.  Tho Avater-wheel which the city has  ordered to drive the big dynamo at the  electric light station is creating more or  less unpleasantness by reason of its failure to arrive. Several days ago The Tm-  ijunk announced its arrival. Yesterday  the Miner nailed "another Tribune lie,"  aud stittcd that as a matter of fact the  wheel had only turned up on Monday.  As the Avayward wheel has not even yet  aiTivcd, the Miner, man must liave mistaken a Avhii'riug nickel-in-the-slot machine for the water-wheel.  A Jap AA'as fined $2.5 yesterday by  mayor Neelands for disorderly conduct  on Baker street. He was mixed up in  the fight with a white man, for av hich  the latter was assessed $5 and costs.  There are one or two-Japs in Nelson that  would not be missed.  The Trujune- has added close on to  two hundred names to its daily and  weekly edition subscription lists in the  last mouth.
