 If  re-  the  tlie  ALDERMAN HILLYER WANTS AN  Expression of Opinion "by the People.  Alderman Hillyer's music hall bylaw  was not reconsidered at last evening's  meeting of the city council. When the  bylaw was called alderman Hillyer made  a speech explaining his object iu introducing the bylaw, and added since  thei'e liad been considerable opposition  rjiiscd against its passage he would prefer  that the bylaw be submitted to the people  and their verdict taken as to whether  there should be a music hall in Nelson or  not.  Alderman McKillop called alderman  Hillyer's attention to the fact that it  would be impossible to conduct a music  hall under the terms of the proposed bylaw and make any money out of it. The  conditions imposed by the bylaw were  such that anyone who attempted to run  a music hall under them would luive to  evade its provisions to make any money.  Mayor Neelands welcomed the proposal  to submit the bylaw to the people jis a  happy way out of the difficulty, lie  said that he hud been in favor of the bylaAV but lie had found that from two-  thiids to thice-fqui tlis of the people of  the city were opposed to it. In view of  this the only vote he would give upon  the matter wouid be in favor of submitting the bylaw to the people.  This  was agreed  to  without dissent,  and those in charge of petitions  against  \/\ the bylaw filed cut of the chainbei agjiiu  ' without presenting.  Alderman Becj-'s bylaw for closing the  biuber shops on Sunday was then cjilled  for reconsideration aud final passage.  Aldeunan Hillyer, who fought the bylaw  jit every pievious stage, switched over  and moved the reconsideration and final  adoption, which was agi'eed to. The  effect of this will be that from now on it  will be an offence for jmy one to shave  or be shaved iu a barber shop in Nelson  on Sunday.  The reports of the finance and public  woiks committees were lejul and  adopted. The former lecommended the  payment of the current accounts. The  leport of the public woiks committee le-  commended (1) the construction of tv  sewer in the alley from Cedar street east  iu block 30 and through blocks S and 15  in Addition A; (2) that an estimate be  obtained as to the cost pf necessary sti'eet  lights on tho alternating system ; itnd (li)  that sewer connection be made fiom the  city hall and fireball, and lavatories be  placed in both buildings.  The belated communication of tlie Nelson Tramway Compar*y with iexpect to  the closing of the present roadway from  the .eastern limits of the city to Oak  street in the Hume addition wjis read.  Alderman Hillyer expressed the opinion  that the council should do something to  prevent the tramway company from  closing up the road. He moved that the  mayor appoint a committee to go into  tlie matter Jind see what arrangement"-  could be made. The mayor, however,  took the view that it, was a nuitter outside the province of the city council Jind  if the business men of the city were interested in keeping the load open they  could deal diiectly with either the tiam-  way company or the Nelson &Forb Shep-  pai'd Railway Company.  A sc'jond communication was read  from the tiamwtiy company protesting  against the manner in which the company's track ou Water street and at the  corner of Stanley street and Mines road  was being nndermined respectively by  the local gas company and the city waterworks extension. This matter was referred to the city engineer.  With respect to the employment of  provincial government prisoners hi the  breaking-of " stone-for- the-city~streets,~  mayor Neelands reported that government agent Turner stated that in the  event of the city paying for the services  of a guai d and supplying the tools, the  labor of the prisoners could be utilized  L;   Mie city for one month on trial.  Macdonald & Johnson wrote asking for  a settlement of Mrs. Gilbert's account  iigaiust tho city for hospital treatment.  The communication was laid over for two  weeks awaiting the action of tho provincial government.  Fred Elliot wrote jiskiug the city for  #5 spent in fixing up the recreation  ground after the use of the same by the  circus. -As the city had a, guarantee  from J. E. Amiable that the ground  would bte left in good shape, he "will bo  i.sked to pay the amount or stiind suit.  The Waterous Engine Company wrote  offering the city a discount of five per  c >ut off the list price for engines if the  machine was ordered by telegraph befoie  the company's annual stock taking. The  engine will not be ordered for the pi'esent.  0. F. Efcter wrote Jislcing the city for  compensation, through the road along the  pipe line from Cottonwood creek being  made impassjible. The matter was referred to the city engineer to report upon  the condition of the road.  The smelter band made a verbal  quest for financial assistance from  cify.    The matter  was referred to  city solicitor.  The bylaw amending bylaw No. 15  which imposes a tax upon fire insurance  companies wjis called for reconsideration  and filial adoption. The bylaw reduces  the annual tax, which tire insurance companies doing business in this city sluill  I jay, from $200 to $100. The reconsideration was moved by alderman Hillyer j  ^piis  PUBLISHED AT* NELSON, BRITISH COLUMBIA.  TUESDAY MOENING, NOVEMBER 7, 1899.  DAILY (BY MAIL) $5 A YEAR; WEEKLY, $2.  and seconded by aldermali McKillop, the  general opinion of the council being that  tho insurance companies had uot reduced  rates iu the business portion of the city  as gi-eatly as they should have done.  Alderman McKillop's bylaw amending  the waterworks bylaw so that it conforms to the provisions of tho Municipal  Clauses Act with respect to the installation and 'maintenance of service pipes  from the,city inaius to the side lines of  private property was put through its  several readings without dissent.  Baring in England.  London, November 6.���Ardor won the  Brownlow    nursery   stakes,    Rumbling  NEWS BY MAIL AND TELEGRAPH  A telegram has been received by superintendent Hussey at Victoria from police  officer .Tames Bain tit the 150-Mile House,  stating tluit McBi ide, the man who robbed  a safe in Cjiriboo of about $5000 some time  ago, has been captured. Officer Bain expresses no doubt as to his having the  right man.  The mines at Rossland shipped 0106  tons of ore last week from five mines,  namely, War Eagle 2550 tons, Le Roi  233(5 tons, Center Star 930 tons, Iron  Mtisk 270 tons, and the Virginia 20 tons.  The ore was worth in the neighborhood  of '$100,000.  II.M.S. Crescent will convoy the Sardinian to Capetown. At Sydney, Cape  Breton, the captain of the Sardinian wjill  receive instructions to this effect. The  Crescent is the flagship of the North  American squadron.  The Dodge telephones arc to be placed  in Toronto business houses for $2.50 a  month and in private residences for $9 a  year.  Vancouver is having a rather warm  time with the police, council, gamblers  tind the sky pilots. The chief of police,  according to resolutions passed at a special meeting of the council last week, will  either have to stop .all gambling in the  city or quit his job. The chief had better  quit.  Of the half hundred men imported  from Seattle and other places to work in  the Payne mine, only two have gone to  woik.    Both were Italians.  The Yiile Lumber Company of Greenwood has ceased to exist. It is understood tluit the Kootenay-Boundary lumber trust; so long talked of, will take over  the business next week.  Ten of the thirteen Ccour d'Alene  miners who were tried in tlie United  States court at Moscow, Idaho, for "obstructing the United States mails when  tlie Bunker Hill and Sullivan mills were  blown up last spring, weie found guilty.  The ten convicted men are Dennis  O'Rourke, Arthur Wallace, Henry Mar-  oni, John Lucinetti, C. R. Bnrres, Francis  Butler, Ed Abinola, P. F. O'Dounell, Mike  Mtilvoy, Louis Salla. Those not convicted wei'e F. W. Garrett, Fred Shaw  and W. V. Bundren. An appeal will be  taken to the circuit court.  State elections occur in Ohio, Nebraska,  Kentucky, and a number of other states  tomoriow. The indications point to a  decided Republican victory. The pros-  peiity of the country, coupled with the  unpopularity of the anti-expansion principles clnirapioned by Democratic leaders,  tells the story.  It is understood that a company has  about been formed in Greenwood for the  purpose of erecting and operating a $20,-  000 brewery in Eholt.���The favorable po--  sition of Eholt in relation to the various  mining camps and towTns of the Boundary  no doubt dictated the choice of Eholt.  The man Quigley, arrested Jit the Loop  lust week by provincial constable McLeod  on a charge of murder committed last  summer at Lacombo, Albei'ta, was let go  a few days ago, the authorities there having sent woul that there was not sufficient evidence to hold him on the charge.  Quigley's sister, wife of the murdered  man, has made a confession which alters  tho complexion of the case, hence the release of Quigley.  Fifteen people were injured by au explosion at the carbide works iu Ottawa  yesterday. Among the injured is chief  Provost of the firo brigade. The origin  of the explosion was due to fire.  The Farmers* Binder Twine Company  of Berlin, Outario, has declined a dividend of 100 per cent. Last year they de-  claied a dividend of 00 per cent.  D. C. Thomson, manager of the Mont-  retil Transportation Company, and well  known in transportation circles in Montreal,died last night. He .suffered a paralytic stroke on the Board of Trade on Saturday.  It is estimated that 8000 hunters are  now in northern Ontario searching for  dcer.  No word has been received at Ottawa  from the war office regarding the second  Canadian contingent, but a reliable  authority says the delay is no indication  tliat the offer will not be siccepted. Newfoundland's offer to send half her constables witJi the second contingent was  warmly z-eceived tit Ottawa.  MANY BUMOBS, BUT 10 NEWS  THE   BOERS   SEEM   TO   BE   GETTING   THE   BEST   OF   IT   IN   NATAL.  London, November 7.���Tho war office  announced .at midnight that no despatches had. been received beyond those  already made public, and that nothing  further, would be heard before noon today. Thus, not a solitary official item of  news has been posted for nearly forty-  eight hours. This luis given rise to a  crop of rumors: that Ltidysmith's ammunition is exhausted; that general White  is mortally wounded, and that both facts  are being concealed; and tluit other unlucky happenings have taken place. For  all of these reports there is absolutely no  foundation. At the same time the Britisher has had little to stimulate him  within the last twenty-four hours except  the news of the confident attitude of the  Ladysmith garrison and its slight successes last Thursday aud Friday.  Advices from other parts of South Africa Jire distinctly unpalatable, and everything points to a critical sitiuition in Natal and the northern portions of Cape  Colony, likely to grow more acute until  general White is either relieved or decisively defeats the Boers. Nobody dares  to think of capitulation. Rather than  that, he is exjaected as a last resort, if  Ladysmith becomes untenable, to make a  desperate effort to cut his Avay through  the Boers back into lower Natal and join  hands with the garrison there, which is  now almost certain to be reinforced by  the first arrivals of the army corps from  England, to be pressed forward to renew' touch with him. It is generally assumed, however, that general  White, with the aid of the naval guns,  will be able to cope with any bombardment, and the idea that the Boers could  take Ladysmith by assault is scouted as  absurd. The defense then depends on  the uninterrupted working of the naval  guns. Right here rises the important  question, upon which the dispatches have  thrown little light, whether the naval  guns, which themselves only arrived tit  the last moment, have with them sufficient ammunition to reply to a bombard  ment lasting possibly several weeks. If  not, it is hardly likely that works exist  in a small town like Ladysmith for easting the special shell needed for the 4.7  gun, and, moreover, there i.s no mention  of stores of lyddite at Ladysmith for recharging these shells.  Meanwhile* vague remarks in the dispatch pbintrto the impending' arrival 'of'  further big Boer guns from Johannesburg,  to be mounted among the hills within  range of Ladysmith. Such considerations  explain the anxiety felt regarding general  White's movements and position, not  only by the public, but in official circles.  The British retirement to Estcourt has  given the impression that it is intended  to make a stand there. Estcourt is the  last important town between the Boers  and the capital of Natal, and if the Boers  sweep past Estcourt, nothing can stop  them from laying siege to Pietermaritz-  burg, which cannot be expected to make  a protracted defence, while its fall would  be a tremendous blow to British prestige  throughout South Africa.  Already the British regiments out of  Colenzo have given the Boers au opportunity to make a bid for the active support of the disaffected Dutch in Natal by  proclaiming the annexation of the upper  Tugela section. Thus far, the Dutch  colonists seem to have confined their  sympathies with the inA'ading Boers to a  platonic emotion. Except for surreptitious assistance, there is no evidence that  they have yet joined the Boers in any  appreciable number.  The British newspapers publish a list  of the transports due to arr ive at Capetown from today. According to this,  some 20,000 men should l each the Cape  by the end of next Aveek; but the admiralty issued a warning last evening to the  effect that no disappointment must be  felt by the public if the transports should  not arrive at the dates mentioned, dates  which, the war office says, are " based in  many cases on too sanguine expectations."

Before the evacuation AA'as decided upon,  the enemy decided to cut off our outposts. The Durban light infantry tind a  forciTof Diiblin~firsileers~Aveire sent to the  relief of the outposts, and a brisk fight  ensued. The Boers Avere lepulsed, leaving thirteen dead. Twenty Boer horses  were killed and the others stampeded.  The chief motive of withdrawal, hoAvever,  Avas that the long range guns of the  Boers has made the position untenable.  No orders Avere received for retirement.  While retirement Avas in progress the  Natal volunteers of Fort Wyleh had  great difficulty iu getting JiAAtiy their  nine-pounder in the dark. They Aveie  advised to spike tlie gun, but a. ere exceedingly tuiAvilling to do this, ic-jolving  to make a determined effort to take it  Avith them. While they Ave re running  the gun on its carriage <1oavii a hill the  ropes broke, and tlie gun aud carriage  ran on, the latter being smashed at the  bottom of the incline. Nothing daunted,  the plucky fellow, undertook to ctmy  the Aveupon itself, Avhich had not been  damaged, and they got it here safely.  The Boers shelled Coienso camp at daAA n  today, being apparently luinAVtvre of tho  evacuation. They looted the stores,, but  did not harm the bridges, saying they  AA'ould Avant the railway themselves.  The Avomen and children here are  croAvding the trains bound for Pietermar-  itzburg and Durban.  Estcourt, Natal, November 4.���It i.s  reported that the Boeis lost 800 in killed,  wounded and captured in Thursday's battle on Tatham's farm, near Ladysmith.  Noon.���A reliable messenger has just  ai rived from Ladysmith, passing the  Boer lines during the night, avIio repoits  that hejiA-y fighting occurred on Thursday  around Ladysmith. The hottest engagement avjis ou George Tiithain's farm, on  the Orange Free State side of Besters.  The British drove the Boers back to their  camp.    Tho enemy suffered great loss,  and thirty mounted Boers were captured.  .The fighting a\ as rcbumed on Friday, the  Boei'S filing from Nosdwathsham, a hill  near Pepworth's farm. Again they were  diiven back Avith loss upon their camp.  A large force under John Wes&eis,  Avith artillery, has taken up a  position on the left of Beacon, locating on  the Woodhouse,,Picciones aud Langva-  racht farina, facing Besters, aud a small  command is now encamped on the soutli  side of Pieters station, commanding the  railway. The Boeis haA'e torn up the  culverts of the railway near Pieters  station and haA'e burned the Avooden  partitions. No damage has yet been  done at Coienso. The houses, stores, ra.il-  Avay and iron bridges remain intact. The  messenger says he heard that the Boers  Avould be in Coienso today (Saturday)  and that the volunteers AA'ere leaving.  Much regret is felt at the unnecessary  alarm being created at Maiitzburg, -when  there is no need for it. The Natal naval  corps Avith guns Avill return to Maritzburg  today-t3 reassure the inhabitants:   False in Every Kespect.  Berlin, November 7.���Commenting  upon a rumor from Amsterdam that Dr.  Leyds, the diplomatic representative of  the Transvaal in Europe, had declared  that the intervention of France, Russia  and Germany in the Ti'ansvaal avjis now  assured, the KolnizeheZeitung says: "We  do not know Avlnit Dr. Leyds may havo  said, but the matter of his supposed statement is false in every respect. Neither  France or Russia luis shown the slightest  inclination, either Avith or Avithout Germany, to settle tlie South African question on the oider of the day."  Awaiting Keinforcements.  London, November 7,���Tne Daily M.iil  litis received the follow ing despatch from  Strombcrg, dated Friday evening: "Au  Orange Free State force. 2000 strong, is  now at FcAvon's farm, halfway betAveen  tlie Orange i iver and Burghersdorp. Tho  Boers jire aw iii ting there for the arrival  of 3000 reinforcements from Rouxville  Bloemfontein, before moving on "Strom-  berg. There is a third Free State force  at Colesburg. The signalling in the Boer  camp avjis plainly visible fiom hero last  night."    Russian Designs on Afghanistan.  London**, November 7.���The .St. Peteio-  burg correspondent of the Times telegraphs that vtnious rumors arc afloat  there rcgai'ding Russian dc-igns upon  Afghanistan.  Afraid of Tar and Feathers.  Victoria, Novembei 0.���[Special to The  Tribune].���Alderman Kinsman made a  sensational .statement to the city council  tonight that the object of the residents of  Victoria West in inviting the mayor and  aldermen to a public meeting on Thursday next is to tar and feather them. If  not the Avhole board, he felt sure that  this treatment was in store for himself,  and he advised refusing the invitation.  This suggestion carried, though other  members repudiated any fear of tar.  Victoria West people are indignant at  the closing of the Craigfiower road,which  incidentally will improve alderman Kins-,  man's property.  SIFTON'S ASSISTED IMMIGRANTS  In a speech made in Winnipeg last  Aveek minister of the interior Sifton, in  extenuation of his policy of bringing in  pauper immigrants from Europe, had this  to say: " Up to tho time he took office he  never heard any objection to population.  Now, however, a certain section of the  press had objected to the immigrants and  had tried to find reasons against them.  As to the Doukhobors and Galicians, they  had only been brought here after careful  investigation by good men, and he AA'as  perfectly satisfied, and Avorrld stake his  reputation that they Avould make  good settlers. He Avanted it taken  down that he had said that in  five years there Avouid not be a Avholesale  man in Winnipeg who Avould say that the  policy of bringing in tliese people Avas a  mistake. There had come in 7303 Doukhobors at a cost of $7.01 per head; 15,909  Galacians at a cost of $4 91 per head;  Avhile all the immigrants of the last three  years cost on an average $9.03 per hejid,  so that they had spent more upon white  settlers than foreigners."  The sequel is furnished in the folloAV-  ing item from the Medicine Hat NeAVs of  the same date: "The coal miners at Leth-  bridge, according to the Macleod Gazette,  threatened to go on strike last week,  AA'anting an increase of Avages. Sixty  Doukhobors were ready to take up the  Avoi-k if the miners Avent out. Ten members of the Northwest Mounted Police  have been, since the first of the AA'eek,  under orders foi Lethbr idge service."  And further illustrated by the folIoAV-  ing from the Toronto Star: "The National Council of Women, at its closing  session in Hamilton, Ontario, yesterday,  decided *co raise a fund to loan to the  Doukhobors. Mrs. Fitzgibbon related  her experience on a recent visit to the  Doukhobor settlement, and said money  Ava.5 badjy needed to help them along."  "*  City's Financial Statement for  October.

In  this the Ptnis journals find in part an  explanation for the mobili/ation of the  iiuti-ih special service squadron. The  view ttiken by the Get in.m pi ess on the  same matter is interesting. The Herlin  journals treat the suggestion of privateering Avith skepticism.  THE MARION IS THE MAKINGS  Of a Good Mine.  Nj3\v Denver, November 6.���Saturday  last the first payment on the bond on the  Marion, one of the prominent properties  on  Silver mountain,   fell   due and  AA'as  promptly met. This deal Avas put tli rough  in the  interest of Toronto  people three  months ago by  D.  W. King, since Avhich  time the  claim  has  been steadily developed.    One tunnel  has been driven closo  on 200 feet, with  an  unbroken ore chute  from the surface, exposing more than sufficient mineral to pay the purchase price.  It is purposed to increase the force and  commence a new tunnel on the lead down  on the Merrimac,  Avhich avjis bonded by  the company a month or so later.    This  will give  much  greater depth and lend  additional value to Avhat is going to make  a shipping property.    J. K. Clark is now  superintendent,bf .the Marion, and everything is proceeding iir almost satisfactory  manner.    The owners of the Marion are  A. Sproat,  A.  Melnnes, J. Marino, NeAV  Denver;   and   G.  Alexander,   Kaslo���all  equal owners.    Several  tons  of supplies  for Avinter use Avill be packed up to the  Marion from here.  A party of experts went up to the Nee-  pawa, Ten-mile, on Saturday, Avhich property Avas thoroughly inspected and the  general situation surrounding the Enterprise sized up.  A steam-heating plant is being installed iu the Payne mine bunkhouse.  W. C. E. Koch will remove his saAvmill  on Ten-mile to the Half-Avay camp, and  Avill add a planer to his equipment. These  improvements portend to greater things  for the creek.  The Queen Bess is fhrming Avater from  Howson creek to drive tho three-drill  compressor being put in at the long  tunnel.  New ore houses are being erected at  the Madison and an ore crusher put iu at  the No. 5 tunnel. Considerable other  impr ivements are also to be effected, including an upraise, winze aud several  hundred feet of tunneling. The property  has an excellent shoAA'ing of ore, both  clean and concentrating. It Avill be a big  producer in a short time.  An effort is being made to have sir  Charles Tupper address the Conservatives in the Slocan Avhile on his Avestern  tour. His experience and sage advice are  sorely needed, if the adherents of the  true faith are to be kept firm to the standard. At piesent things are at sixes and  se\'cns, with the so-called and self-termed  leaders in secret, and sometimes open,  variance one with the other, Avhile the  rank and file among tho, laboring classes  profess faith in nothing short of* eight  hours ti day and $3.50���not principle, but  actual and'stei**i reality. *  Wedded.  James M. Bulger, of the Ctmadian Pacific shipyard, joined the ranks of the  benedicts yesterdjiy afternoon, avIich ho  was married to Mrs. L. M. Jameson. The  marriage ceremony avjis performed in tho  Carney block by Rev. Robert Frew in tho  presence of ii large circle of friends, the  bride being attended by Edith F, Leduc  and the gioom by James Mclvirnen, After  the ceremony the company sat down to a  very tasty supper. Mr, and Mrs. Bulger  AA'ere the recipients of several very handsome presents. The men employed in the  shipyard presented them Avibh a handsome oak sideboard, ti silver tea service,  and a set of carveis; G.

Why justifiable ?   The mine  managers of the   Slocan are disputing  Avith the mine Avorkers over ji question of  Avages,  tho workers demanding $3.50 a  day and tho managers willing to pay but  .$&   Surely tlie diU'ereiices  call  be  ad-  jvisted   without   bringing   an   undesirable class of   people into- the country.  Were a difference to arise betAveen the  managers and the dealers iu poAvder, or  the dealers in mining timbers,: or the  dealers in drill steel, over the price of any  of these articles, Avould the managers be  -justified in purchasing inferior poAvder,  or timbers, or steel ? They Avould not be,  find they ai'e not justified in importing  men into the country that do not make  laAv-abiding residents, and Avho seldom  become citizens.  The Tribune is of opinion tluit mayor  Neelands erred in stating that, the  city  was not concerned in the  closing  of the  road leading to the Nelson & Fort  Sheppard depot.    The   city   is   concerned- jn,  eA'eryroad and trail leading-to' aud from  the city, for it is  over these  roads and  ti'ails thatthe people of Nelson either do  .business themselves or got the business of,  '���men AA'ho Jire dcA'clopiug mines ^tributary  to Nelson.    The Nelson & Fort Sheppard  railway haf;'been an important factor in  the  upbuilding of the  town, and every  facility should be giA-en the people avIio  of necessity must transact business over  that   road.      The   ti'amway people,- no  doubt, are acting like hogs iu closing tlie  i*oad to the Nelson & Fort  Sheppard de-  pot���but they tire not acting in any  AATay  different   from    corporations   that    get  what they want from a city for  nothing.  The city should see to it that u road is  made, so that traffic Avill  not  be  interrupted betAveen the toAvn and the rail-  Avay depots and made at once.  The Greemvood Miner, in discussing  the threats of minijig-broker McCiuiig of  Monti'eal to test the constitutionality of  the eight-hour Ijiaa. is in error when it  States tluit the supreme court of the  United States has pjissed on a like issue  and has decided that eight-hour laws  ptissed by several, states were unconstitutional. W it is not an error, why  has not A. W. McCune of .Salt Lake,  Utah, who is a ptirtncr of mining-broker  McCuaig in -the Payne mine, in the  .Slocan, had the Utah eight.-hour law up.set  by the court of final resort iu the United  Slates? Tlie truth is that tho supreme  courts of the seA-erjil slates litive passed  on such laws; some of them declaring the  Ijiav to be constitutiontil, AVhilo others declared just the opposite.  Alderman JIillyior does not seem to  know his own mind on the music hall bylaw question. One day ho introduces  the bylaAV*; the next day he says he Avill  Avithdi'.'iAv it; Jind the next decides to  submit it to the people. The people of  Nelson are not losing sleep over the  music hall question and do not Avant to  be bothei-ed Avitli it���and some of them  tire beginning to lose faith in alderman  Hillyer.    He  is  too much of a "Hopper.''

Their masters  make an absurd statement, and they  take it up and repeat it so often that  they imagine they are making statements of fact.  Patriotism Used For Party Purposes.  Toionto .Star.  The reA'erses suffered by. sir George  White have already given rise to ji demand for a second Canadian *coi7tingent,  but it is just as Avell not to ovei'do tho  thing or the world may get the .idea that  Canadian patriotism i.s of the frothy A'ar-  iety. Tho proposal is a Conservative  trick, designtited to put the government  "into a hole." Of course the gOA'ern-  ment Avould justly refuse to raise a  second contingent at this stage of  eA-ents, and the opposition Avould  Avhoop it up for tho old flag and denounce  the Liberals as traitors. Contingents  fi'oin the colonies Avere not AAranted or 21c-  cepted by Britain merely as a matter of  of numbers; they Avere designed simply  to show the Avorld the loytilty of the colonies, aud jis a hint of Britain's vast re-  seiwe strength. Hawing sent contingents,  the ejnpjj-e's object has been accomplished.  It is pertinent in A'iew of this agitation  for a second contingent based on the  ejirly British defeats,- , to 'recall the  fact that the bulk ..of the Biitish forces  are still : Jit sea, and tluit long  Jigo it Avas admitted that early in the  Avar British reA-erses Avould be the J'ule.  The expected has happened, but there is  no use of ���groAving. hysterical over it. The  Boers hiiA-e 20,000 men at Ladysmith, tind  general White had 12,000, and it is nsit-  urjil that the British should not Avin a  A'ictory. But Biitain has euroute, Jibout  to start, over 7.5,000 troops, and they.Avill  be more than sufficient, according to present prospects, to cope Avitli- the Trans-  .vaal .forces. It is time to cease using  patriotism as a party dodge.  A Menace to the City's Existence.  Sandon Paystreak.  The latest phase of the sti'ike situation  ���the importation of Italian laborers���is  a menace to the existence of the city of  Sandon, and, for that'matter, to  the in-  dustrial- Avelfare  of   every   other   community in the Kootenay.    It is' fill very  well for the Mine Owners' Association to  take   Avhatevei"   stand   they choose on  inatters political, but a. hen they undertake to displace British subjects ������with  these  ignorant,   degenerate  Jiliens they  OA'erstep the mark and threaten the business    of    many    Avho    are    dependent  for their Arery-existence oii'the high-class  Avorkmen  who ., have   built,  the Slocan.  Such a programme Will not be quiescently accepted,by the citizens of- the Slocjtn,  and if the mine OAvners find, the affair jis-  sumihga national importance and theni-  .seh'cs held up to  execration  throughout  tho length and breadth ofthe land  they  may   sooth   .their  Avounded sensibilities  Avith the reflection  that  A\'hat"e*.er they  may suffer at the hands of an outraged,  public and ji disparaging press luive been  brought on by their own actions.

Nisw York, November (5.���Tlie consul-  general of the Orange Free State in tliis  city gave out today the full text of president Sfcoyn's proclamation culling on the  Orange Free State Boers to support the  Transvaal. The proclamation readh as  follows:  " Burghers of tlie  Orange Free  Slate :  Tiie time which we had so much desired  to avoid, the moment when we jis ft  nation ai'e compelled, with arms, to oppose  injustice  and  shameless   violence,  is Jtt  hand.    Our sister republic  to  the north  of the Vaal river is about to  be attacked  by an unscrupulous enemy, who for many  years litis  prepared himself and  sought  pretexts for the violence of  which  he is  now guilty, whose purpose it is to destroy  the   existence   of   tlie  Afrikander race.  "With our sister republic we are not only  bound by ties of blood, of sympathy and  of common interests, but also   by formal  treaty, which has  been  necessitated by  circumstances.       This   treaty   demands  of   us   that   we   assist,   if    she   should  be  un.-ju.stly  attacked, which  we  unfortunately for a  long time have had too  much  reason  to   expect.    We  therefore  passively look on  while injustice is done  her, tind while tilso our own dearly bought  freedom is endangered, but are called as  men  to  resist,   trusting   the Almighty,  t firmly believing  that  He will never permit injustice and unrighteousness to triumph.    Now that we thus resist a powerful enemy, with whom it has always beeu  our honest desire  to  live iii friendship,  notwithstanding    injustice    and   wrong  done by him to us in the past, we solemnly declare in the presence of Almighty God  that we Jire compelled thereto by the injustice done to our kinsmen, and by the consciousness  that  the  end  of  their independence will make our existence  as  an  independent sttite of no significance, and  that their fate, should they be obliged to  bend under an overwhelming power, will  goon afterward be our own ftxte.   Solemn  treaties havo not protected our sister republic agftinst annexation, against conspiracy, against the claim of tin abolished  suzerainty, against    continuous   oppression     and      intoi-fereuco,      and       now  against     a     renewed      attack     which  aims        only       at       her downfall.  Our own unfortunate experiences in  the past have also made it sufficiently  clear to us, that we cannot rely on the  most solemn promises and agreements of  Great Britain when she has at her helm  "a-government prepared- wr trample-oir  treaties, to look for feigned pretexts for  every violation of good faith by her committee. This is proved, among other  tilings, by tho unjust aud unlawful British convention, after we liad overcome an  armed and barbarous bltick tribe in our  eastern frontier, as also by the forcible  appropriation of the dominion over part  of our territory, where tlie discovery of  diamonds had cjuised the desire for this  appropriation, although contrary to existing treaties. The desire Jind intention  to trample on Our rights, as an independent and sovereign nation, notwithstanding a solemn convention existing  between this state and Great Brittiin,  have also been more than once, and are  now again shown by the present'government, by giving expressions to public  documents to an unfounded claim of parii-  mountey over the whole of South Africa,  and therefore overthis state. With regard to the South Africjin Republic,  Great Britain has moreover refused until  the present to allow her to regain her  original position iu respect to foreign affairs, a position wliich she liad lost iu no  sense by her own faults. The original intention of conventions to which the republic had consented under pressure of  circumstances had been perverted and  continually been used by tlie present  Bi'itish administration as a means for  the practice of tyranny and of injustice,  and among other things, for the support  of a revolutionary propogtinda within  the republic in favor of Great Britain.  And while no redress has been offered, jis  justice demands, for injustice done to the  South African Republic on the part of  bad British government, and while no  gratitude is exhibited for the magna-  mity shown at the request of the British  government to British subjects who had  Is qow prepared to issue Drafts and Letters  of Credit on Skaguay, U. S., Atlin,, B. C, and  Dawson City, Yul^or* District.  forfeited under the laws of the republic,  tlieir lives and property, yet no feeling of  shame litis prevented  tlie British government, now  that  gold  mines of immense  value have been  discovered in the country, to make claims  on the republic, the  consequence of which, if allowed, will be  tliat those who or whose forefathers have  saved the  country  from barbarism and  have won  it  for  civilization with their  blood and their tears  will lose their control over the interests of the country, to  which they are justly entitled according  to divine  and  human  love.    The consequence of these  claims  would be, moreover, that the greater  part of the power  will be placed in the hands of those who,  foreigners by birth, enjoy the privilege of  depriving the country of its chief treasure, while  they have  never shown any  loyalty  but to   a   foreign   government.  Besides,  the   inevitable   consequence  of  the  acceptance   of  tliese   claims  would  be that the  independence of the countiy as a self-governing independent sovereign republic  would  be irreparably lost.  For years  Bi'itish  troops  in great numbers have been placed on the frontiers of  our sister republic in order to compel her  by fear to accede  to the demands which  would be pressed  upon her, and in order  to encourage revolutionary disturbances  and the  cunning  plans  of  those whose  greed for gold is the cause of their shameless undertakings.   Those plans have now  reached their clinuix in the open violence  to whieli the present British government  now resorts.    While Ave readily acknowledge the  honorable  character of thousands   of   Englishmen   who   lotithe   such  deeds of  robbery and wrong, Ave cannot  but abhor   the   shameless  breakings  of  treaties,  the   friendly   pretexts for  the  transgression   of   law,  the   violation  of  international   hvw   tmd   of   justice,  and  the numerous right-rending deeds of the  Britisn  statesmen   Avho   Avill  iioav force  11 Avar upon the South African  Republic.  On their heads be the guilt of  the  blood  and may just providence award' as  they  deserve.

The vein matter is made up of  about 20 inches of clean ore, the remainder being composed chiefly of  concentrating ore which samples 60  ounces silver. From the main tunnel  level there has been shipped 520 tons  of clean ore, which netted the company,  after deducting freight and treatment  charges, over $1000 to the car of from  18 to 20 tons. From the main tunnel  an upraise has been driven for 100 feet  and a stope 75 feet long opened up.  About 150 feet below the main tunnel  a cross-cut is being run. This tunnel  is now in 125 feet and it is estimated  that the lead exposed in the main tunnel will be reached in another 30 feet.  A force of 18 men is at present employed upon the property, all but three  of whom are employed on development.  The company has another three cars of  clean ore ready for shipment.

Schreiner, premier of Cjipe Colony, will  not recognize that gentleman as ono  of the chief causes of the present  danger "to British power in Soutli  Africa. The loyalty of Mr. Schreiner  and his Afrikander government has  been open to question throughout the  earlier stages  of   the   present    trouble.  The Salisbury government had to consider the Schreiner ministry and its objections to the landing of an adequate  force in South Africa. Between the pro-  Boer in South Africa and the pro-Boer  Liberals iu London the hands of her  majesty's government were tied, and any  disaster due to the lack of adequate force  in South Africa will be a result of these  causes.
