 $  'fe'?  \m  m,  m&  WHITE MEETS WITH DISASTER  Two Regiments and a Battery Surrender.  London, October 31.���Tlie following is  the text of general  White's  dispatch  to  the war office : "Ladysmith, Oetober 30,  1:35 p. m.���I have to report a disaster to  the column sent by me to take a position  on a hill  to guard  tho  left Hank  of the  troops.    In   theso  operations  today the  Boyal Irish  Fusileers,  No.  10  Mountain  buttery,   and   tho   Gloucestershire  regiment Avere  surrounded in  the hills,  and  after   losing heavily  had  to capitulate.  The casual Lies  liave not  yet been  ascertained.    A man of the Fusileers, employed as a hospital orderly, came in   under a  Hag of  truce with a letter from the survivors of the column, who asked for assistance to bury the dead.    I  fear  tliere  is no doubt  of  the truth  of the  report.  J formed  a plan, in the curry ing out of  which tlio  disaster  occurred, and   I   am  alone responsible for the plan.    Tliere  is  no blame whatever to  the troops, as  the  position was untenable."  General White in a subsequent dispatch  ,'* S-.--, ..  ^_K?w.  r*V����t;  OTw��3r*��-*<.

Several shells  have dropped into the town.  London, October 31.���A special dispatch from Ladysmith says: "ThcBoeis  suffered severely during the engagement.

RELIEF THAT COMMUNICATION  Has Been Cut Between Ladysmith and Durban.  Lonpon, November I.���An ominous  curtain has iigiiin descended upon affairs  iii" Nat ill. No dispatches except the  official telegram:*-* of general White liave  thus far been permitted to mention the  disaster, and no telegram from Ladysmith has been received in London since  the advices from the British commander.  This gives rise to fi belief that com-  mimication lias already been cut, in which  event some time must elapse before details regarding the British" losses aie  iieceived. If war office officials have  received information on this point, they  have icfrained*from publishing it. General White's estimate that the British  losses woro about ninety is evidently  quite separate from tlie probable losses  in killed and wounded among the captured  battalions, on this point there is the  greatest suspense among the relatives of  the prisoners.   Make But Brief Comments Editorially.  London, October 31.���The afternoon  papers made only brief editorial comments on the news from Ladysmith, but  their head lines voiced the feeling of  ���general dismay .-The tone of-tho editorials  can be summed up by the following from  the St. Jaines Gazette: '"It is evident  that the patriotism and fortitude of the  nation are to bo tested in real earnest by  these operations of ours iu Natal agJiiust  orders. Genei-al White had a difficult  task .set him, and we must take the  disaster with the dogged coolness whieli  Britons know how to display. We .shall  await the final result without appie-  heiision."  The Globe calls upon the British empire to receive this "bitter and unpala-  tJible dispatch" with the spirit of a groat  nation who relies ou its invincible ie-  .servos'of strength.  Much Depends on Buller.  London, October 31.���One asmounce-  ment today was received by the British  with unfeigned satisfaction, namely, the  arrival of general Buller at Capetown;  bub it is pointed out that Buller cannot  cud the war without an army oorps, and  some of the troops wliich are to compose  it have not even left Euglaud for South  Africa. Dispatches from Capetown show  that Buller's reception there m as most  enthusiastic. He was welcomed by gen-  ei'al sir Frederick Forester Walker, after  which both enteied ii carriage Jind drove  to Government House, escorted by mounted police and mounted volunteers. They  were wildly cheered by throngs of people  lining the route. There were cries of  "Avenge Majuba!" and wild cheers for the  general. Buller's face was impassive as  he returned military salutes for cheers.  Irish Papers Gleeful,  London, November 1.���The Irish  Nationalist papers are quite gleeful. The  Dublin Evening Telegraph, John Dillon's  paper, says: "A big bully triumphant is  no lovely spectacle, but a big bully beaten  is the very acme of disgrace."   The Dub-  Is Not Yet Acknowledged.  '  London, October 31.���While minor reverses were  not  wholly  unexpected, no  Englishman ever dreamed that anything  like the staggering blow general Joubert  delivered to general White's  foi'cos  yesterday threatened  tlie British  arms in  South Africa,  and,  apparently, the full  extent of the disaster is not yet acknowledged.     Enquiry at the war office seems  to indicate that tho  military  dispatches  contain  other    particulars,  which   it is  deemed inexpedient to publish  immediately, but the serious nature  of  which is  now distrusted.    The story as already  known, however, is sufficiently bad.   The  loss in effective men must beappjilling to  ji general who is  practically surrounded.  Two of the finest British regiments and si  mule battery deducted from  the Ladysmith garrison weakens it about ji fifth  of its total strength, and altei-s the whole  situation very mjitei ially in favor  of the  Boers,  who,   once    again,    have  shown  themselves  stern   fighters  and  military  strategists of superior order.    The disaster to the British is from   1100  to 2000  men and six 7-pounder  screw guns, and  as the Boer artillery is already  stronger  than imagined, the capture of these guns  will be ji great help to the Boers.  Apart from the immediate loss in effectives, which will seriously, cripple gpn-  eral White's operations, the Biitish defeat must have a depressing effect on tiie  balance" of the Ladysmith forces, while it  may be expected to liave much weight  with tho Boers who are wavering as to  which side to support, and immensely  raise the morale of the Boer forces and  bring crowds of j-ecruits to their standard. Further news must be a wjiited before it is attempted to attach blame  where it belongs., General White manfully accepts all discredit attaching to  the disaster, .which apparently was, at  least, partially due to the stampeding of  the mules with the guns. From the list,  it will be seen that 42 officer- were made  prisoners, besides a newspaper correspondent, named J. Hyde.  At the government office no effort was  made to conceal the feeling of dismay  prevailing. One official said to a representative of the Associated Press: "It is  inexplicable, and I am Sony to Siiy its  morjil effect is inestimable. We have lost  hetivily in many wars, jind have had J'egi-  ments almost wiped out, but to liave regiments captured, and by Boers, is humiliating."  The manliness of general White's avow-  al-that it-was his fault has awakened the  deepest sympathy. An official of the war  off ice said: 5,It is more than likely due  to the craze of our younger officers to  distinguish themselves, obtain mention  in the dispatches, and earn the Victoria  Ci-oss, than to the fault of that splendid  Indian veteran, general White, iu .spite of  his pitiful avowal."  Tliis sobering note is struck by all this  morning's papers, together with an expression of a determination to carry the  matter through at whatever cost.  The Daily Chronicle, referring editorially to tho situation, says: "In view of  the patent feature of the campaign and  of the terrible humiliation of the British  army, we can only vaguely hope that  general White, in the hard diiys that lie  before him, may be able to hold Ladysmith, Retreat; would be jm undertaking which the imagination fails to grasp.  If this war is to be ji Avar of vengeance,  we shall luive to wipe out a disaster be-  foi-e which the memory of Mjijuba fades  away. The empire is face to face with a  repulse comparably only to the surrender of Burgoyue to the embattled  formers of our American colonies. If  the catastrophe cjiIIs for something better than music hall parodism, we nuiy  come co reckon it jis a timely lesson, well  learned for the good of ourselves."  The Daily News says : "It is found impossible to move the stores. General  White will probably be ordered to withdraw upon Colenso. If the order is not  given it will be because a removal of tlie  stoies would be too risky.'"  May Retreat to Natal's Capital.  London, October 31.���Reports are current here tliat general White may retire  to Pietermaritjcburg, while the railway  is intact. There ib much divergence of  opinion in military cii-cles as to the advisability of such a step. ,'  Refrain From Harsh Criticism.  London, November 1.���There is no  general desire evinced on the part of today's morning papers to criticiy.e general  White harshly pending the arrival of  further details. On the contrary, the  disposition is to admire his manly courage in assuming full responsibility.  The Morning Post, -pointing out how  near the British were to a still greater  disastei*, says: "In capturing the column,  the Boers had the Devonshire regiment  practically at tlieir mercy, and a little  more daring would have made a bad business much worse; and seeeing that a force  strong enough to scoop a couple of infantry battalions could have put itself practically between general White and his  camp, we may be very thankful tlmt  things today are not more serious than  they are. The lesson has been a severe  one. It is humiliating to find a nation of  farmers beating soldiers at their own  game, but the sooner a proper respect is  luid for Boer strategy and tactics the bet-  ter for our forces in Natal."  The Morning Post calls attention to  general , White's use of the word  "capitulation," remarking that it suspects the word was used carelessly. It  says: " We prefer to assume that the  column fought until it was cut to pieces  and all the ammunition was gone.'  Capitulation is ji word of shame. Troops  in the field cannot capitulate without  disgrace, aud disaster is not necesarily  dishonor."  The Times says: "We have met with a  considerable reverse. It is for the nation  to show that i . c in bear ill-fortune with  courage and dignity."  CAMPAIGN SEVERELY CRITICIZED  By a British Army Officer.  London,   November   1.���The   disaster  has caused a feeling akin to,consternation  in Gloucester and  the north  of Ireland,  where   the    captured    regiments    were  leeruited.   The blackest gloom prevails,  families awaiting with beating hearts for  news of the killed and wounded, which  aro expected to reach ti very high figure.  Many homes are already ia mourning, in  consequence of the losses  sustained  by  these regi.jetits in previous engagements.  Public anxiety was increased by a special  dispatch from Ladysmith,  published  by  the late edition of the morning papers, to  the effect that before darkness yesterday  the   Boers  reoceupieel   the old position  held   by   their   heavy   battery,    which  general White had reported silenced by  the guns of the naval  brigside  from the  Powerful, and had opened fire again. The  dispatch further says:    "The enemy ai-e  again closing in, and the situation is one  of   great   anxiety.     Beyond  doubt the  Boer retirement yesterday was a ruse to  draw general White into the hilly country and away from the British camp."  Some scathing things are said in  military circles of the British  tactics  which  have made possible the ambush  of the  18th Hussars at Gleneoe and now the loss  of two fine regiments:���An-i n ter view ~is~  published with ji  Bi'itish  officer,  whose  name is withheld, but who is described as  a   well-known   general   with   a   distinguished record during the Indian mutiny.  Iu the course of the interview, he passed  severe criticism on  the  conduct  of the  campaign.    "Yesterday's  disaster,"  said  the officer in  question, "is  only another  proof of serious  blundering.     Although  general      White     is      a     good     regimental     commander,      ho      does      not  seem     to     excel       in      strategy     or  the management of a big division.     T regard  the  Gleneoe affair jis another example  of   blundering."      Proceeding   to  describe the battle of Gleneoe, he observed : " Some of the enemy  were allowed  to occupy and plant guns on  Talana hill.  Nothing was done to stop this until  the  Boers began   to shell Gleneoe on the  following   morning.      As    for   yesterday's  casuality, it seems inexcusable, that two  regiments should have been allowed to  separate themselves from the main body,  especially with a considerable  swarm  of  the enemy against them.    I know  I Jim  expressing the opinion of many military  officers.    General White's honest admissions of full responsibility are regarded in  some circles as virtually placing liis  cjise  in the hands of the home authorities, and  it is even rumored this evening that  the  war office has already decided to   supercede him."  It is supposed that the stampeding of  the mules meant the carrying away of  the reserves of ammunition, and that tlie  troops captured capitulated after firing  the rounds wliich each man carried. In  the absence of news, the morning papers  jire reduced to speculation as to how the  disaster occurted. The geueial opinion  is that a misuse of the csivab y was the  real reason for the fall into the Boer trap.  Apparently there was no cavalry to watch  over the .safety of the missing column,  NEW BUILDINGS TO BE ERECTED  At the Bosun Mine.  Nkw Dbnvkr, Oetober 31.���New buildings are about to be erected at the Bosun,  including a bunkhousc for the men and  general offices for the clerical staff. The  bunkhouse will accommodate forty men.  The owners of the Hai'tney group have  granted the bonders an extension of  time of 00 days for the initial payment.  In the meantime, development work i.s  being vigorously pushed. There are eight  oi- ten tons of oi-e on the dump, taken  from the main drift.  The force on the Ruby, close to New  Denver lias been increased for a time.  The crosscut tunnel, which has been  under way foi- some weeks, will cut the  pjiy chute this week, and satisfactory re-  sults are expected. In the breast of the  drift is ti conglomeration of quartz, spar  and ledge matter. Assays from surface  croppings gave over $20 in gold and 1340  ounces of silver. There are two claims  aud ji friiction in the group, lying to the  north of Fidelity bluff.  Hugh Cameron has expended the  government allowance of $..00 on the  WJigon road between New Denver and  Three Forks, and it is now in fairly good  condition for winter traffic.  The initial payment on the Marion  bond falls due tliis week. Development  on the property has proceeded in a most  satisfactory manner, there being no  break in the ore chute, and there is more  than sufficient mineral in sight to meet  the bond and pay the operating expenses.  At tho California the recent strike of  clean ore encountered in the raise from  No. 3 tunnel is continuing in width and  richness.  A FOOLISH  OFFICIAL REBUKED  Grand Trunk railway depot, this morning. The building was a total loss. The  origin of the fire was due to an overheated furnace.

Chicago, October 31.���The British consul in this city has addressed a communication to the Times-Herald siying that  the number of applicants who wish to  serve in tho British army is so great that  he is unable to answer them, and, for the  information of those still in ignorance of  the fact, he states that no volunteers  have been cjilled for. He also denies a  Minneapolis report that he advised two  men who wished to enlist to go to Canada, to join the Canadian regiment, which  sailed from Quebec yesterday.  News From Durban.

The case of Johnsen vs. Blakomore was  disposed  of  yesterdjiy.    In   this  action,  Max Johnsen, the plaintiff, was suing to  recover   damages  from  William  Blake-  more,    formerly    resident   manager   at  Fernie for   the  Crow's  Nest  Pass  Coal  Company.    The plaintiff claimed, all told,  $1800.     As  the  case  developed  it  was  shown  that  when   Johnsen  left Fernie  for England he transferred his business  to ji brother-in-law, named Watson.  The  latter afterwards assigned to Blakemore,  and it was by reason, of Blakemore's disposition of the Jissets of the estate that  the claim for damages arose.    Under the  cross-examination  of   Johnsen,  it  came  out that he had, on his return from England, signed releases to Watson, Blakemore and the Crow's Nest Pass Coal Company, and was paid .$115 iu  settlement.  Mr. justice Martin  found  that Johnsen  ratified   by his  subsequent fiction   and  letters   the   assignment  of   Watson  to  Blakemore  and   non-suited  him.      S. .S.  Taylor, Q.

Bkrjjn, October , 21.���Emperor William's farewell message to the British  Royjil Dragoons the regiment of wliich  lie is honorary colonel, on its departure  for South Africa, expi-essed his majesty's  hope that all of the men would return  "unscathed," jind was taken as a proof  of Germany's official neutrality. One of  the evening papers, referring to the dispatch, points out its high significance,  and says it is the best answer to " Pan-  Gcrmanic leagues, Anglophobia and predictions of foreign intervention in which  Germany is to play a leading part."  The Bourse says: " The i-epeated effoi ts  to inveigle Germany into interfering in a  question absolutely foreign to her  natiomU inteiests hjiv^paIpiibIy_the_soIe_  "object of discrediting her policy.

A meeting of the directors of the Summit-Ymir Mining Company wjis held last  evening in the company's  offices  in  the  Broken Hill  block, Nelson, when  it was  decided  to  resume  work upon the company's  property, known  as the Summit  mine, aud .situate about two miles above  the  Ymir  mine,  on   the  north  fork  of  Wild Horse creek.    John  Lindblad, one  of the original owners  of the property,  and a heavy stockholder  in  the  present  company, will have charge of the  work.  He will pick up a crew of miners iu  Nelson and get to work as soon  as  possible.  The miners will be paid the  union scale  of wages, $3.50 for the eight-hour shift.  Up to date there has been about $8000  spent in  developing  the  Summit property, which has disclosed a six-foot ledge  of free  milling quartz,  which  returned  fissays   ranging about   $30  to  the ton.  Nearly Jill this work, however, was done  bythe original owners and by a Vancouver  syndicate, which had au option upon the  property, some two years ago.    There is  one tunnel in 78 feet, at the end of which  ji shaft has been sunk 30 feet.    Some 300  feet above this tunnel, another shaft has  been sunk 47 feet,  from   the  bottom  of  which a crosscut was afterwards run by  the   owners,   cutting   a six-foot   ledge.  Where cut, this ledge  gave  an  average  assay of $5.50 in gold.  After the Vancouver syndicate's bond  expired, the owners of the property did  another $3000 wofth of work, chiefly in  running a long crosscut tunnel, which  cut the ledge some 225 feet from the  mouth of the tunnel, and at a depth of  140 feet. Some very high assays were  obtained at this depth.  A few days ago the present company  stat ted in to dispose of the stock for the  purpose of raising funds for development  purposes. So successful have their efforts  in this direction beeu, that the company  is now in a position to put a force of men  at work and continue development all  winter. The company has less than a  mile of road to build to connect the mine  with the main road to Ymir.  CUSTOMS BUSINESS HAS MORE  Than Doubled in a Year. 0  Owing to the press of business  in'1 the  customs house,  the full  leturns  of the  port of Nelson far the month  of October  are not yet to hand *, but the statement  of imports  shows  a,wonderful  growth  over that of the coi responding month for  '1898.    Por  the  month just   closed, the  value of the goods eutei'ed for import was  $107,251, as against $35,604 for  the corresponding month last year.    The  value  of the dutiable goods  was $78,025 and  that of the free goods $28,(529.   Tho duty,  collected   and    other    revenue   for   the  month was $21,798.73, as against. $10,-  233.71  for  the Siime  month    last year.  These figures show that, although  Eastern   Canadian   goods    are    supplanting  American products in Kootenay markets,  tho growth of Nelson's trade during  the"  present has beeu such tliat its merchants  have paid the Canadian customs over one  hundred per cent more in customs duties  than were paid during tlie corresponding  month in  the  previous year.    It is also  worthy of note that the  collections  for  the last month  are the  greatest  iu  the  histoiy of the port.     It nuiy   jilso be  noted that the staff' of the port of Nelson  is made up of three and a half men.  His Death Expected,  Pati:uson, New Jersey, October 31.--  It was stilted tliis evening by the physicians in attendance that the condition of  vice-president Hobart is such that ji fatal  result may ensue any moment, or his  pi'esent condition may be indefinitely  prolonged. It was also announced tliat  Mr. Hobart would not return to Washington, nor will ho again take part in  public affaii'-s, oven should he be restored  to perfect health.  M^klng the Molly Gibson a Mine.  The Molly Gibson Mining Company is  pushing the work on the construction of  the iiagon road which is to open communication between the irtine find the  west arm of Kootenay lake, jit a point  twelve miles fiom Nelson. There remains something over two miles of the  road to complete, and with a crew of  forty men at work, it i.s expected that  the road will bo through by the end of  Nm ember. In the mine itself a force of  twenty-two men is employed ou development. No ore is being taken out, save  such as is encountered in development,  but a shipment of some 200 toils is  -acked ivjidy for moving as soon as tho  road is completed.  Bonded on More Favorable Terms.  H. C. Campbell-Johnston, acting, it is  presumed, for the Nelson Copper Fields,  Limited, has secured a new bond upon  the Juno group, in place of the one which  cxpiied a few days ago. The now bond  is much more favorable to the company,  in that tlio money payments under it are  about one-quarter of the sum named in  the first bond, liy tho new arrangement  tho company pays $2000 in fifteen djiys,  and $12,000 in six months completes the  money payments, the balance being taken iu stock.  ** 11  I  Collections of Inland Revenue  For the  month   of October, tho  collec-  i  dons  of  inland revenue at  Nelson and  i  Rossland weie jis follows :  *  Rowland  XeKmi  Spirit-         ���             -                              $I.<U9 'iS  "Mult                                                              J.74 15  SJ.'il'" ,-��7  i  3.W l��  Tolut in                       ,                       .    ,        'il 411  s:�� a:.

An eiglit-liour law without a penalty clause is one of the things  that sounds nice but means nothing.  The Hour of Peril.  Toionto Teleginm.  Britain is  now at  its  worst in Soutli  Africa and the Boers  are  at their  best.  The republics have no reserve force.   The  British troops in pSouth Africa are a mere  handful.    The Salisbury government has  been playing between two lires.    Fear of  offending  the Cape  Dutch   by    landing  a sufficient force   in  South Africa has  been supplemented by��� a dread that the  Liberals iu England would shriek if anything was done to effectually safeguard  British  interests in  South   Africa.     If  tlie j Boers    had    been     dealing    -with  Germany or Russia, it would  have  been  different.     In     t,hc    Jirst     place,    the  Boers  would have never been 'tolerated  as  ti  semi-independent power.    And  if  Germany or  Russia had been  in fpsu- of  .trouble with a border state, troops would  have been rushed in  regardless of public  opinion.    The Salisbury govern men t was  afraid   to  protect   British   interests   in  South   Africa  by   landing   a force   big  enough to  give  the  Boors  a chance to  shout    that    their    independence    was  thieatened.    Tlie result is that Britain is  temporarily weak, and the most that can  be expected from the forces on the scene  is  a   sternly  defensive   campaign until  sir Bedvers Biillei* is ready  to  take  the  field.  Asks a Boer Sympathizer to Xesign.  London, October 31.���At a meeting of  the Caithness electoi-s yesterday evening  a   resolution was  unanimously iidopted  condemning the attitude of Gtivin Brown  _3.]ark,_Radie.il,_tlip_membci*_foi_.CiiithncE>s  in the house of commons, on the South  African question, jmd aiking him to resign. Mr. Clark was formerly consul-  general of the Transvaal in London,  agcr, E. .1. Chamberlain, Ottawa. Most  of the officers nvc connected with the Ca-  njula Atlantic Railway Company, whose  headquarters are at Ottawa and whose  president is J. It. Booth, the lumber king.  The company luis operated the Menominee fleet of six boats since early in 1S!>7  between Duluth and Parry Sound and  Chicago and Parry Sound. This fleet was  recently sold to the National Steel Conir  pany, and the Canada Atlantic Company  has purchased the George On* and Arthur  Orr. They will purchase more vessels.

Month kal, October 31.���Lord Minto,  governor-general of Canada, himself ji  Biitish soldier with a good record, spoke  at the Caledonian society concert this  evening, and amidst a, perfect hurricane  of applause made .a stirring speech in defense of general "White, who he declared  had won his Cross time after time, and  who deserved sympathy in his hour of  sorrow. The news from Ladysmith was  termed a disaster, but he considered it  merely ii reverse, a check Avhich would  only stimulate them for the work that is  to come.  A Toronto Preacher Preaches Woe.  Toronto, October 81.���There was an  exciting scene at St. James cathedral, at  the service in connection Avith the departure of the Canadian troops, as the  result of tlie disastrous news from South  Africa. Tho church was crowded. The  preacher, Bev. A. JI. Baldwin, said, if  Britain was defeated she would lose not  only South Africa, but the empire would  be weakened in other lands, liis remarks  caused fierce cries of "Never!'' which  startled the congregation. The women  present were much affected, and sobs  wore heard all over the church.  w  Z-(=*���(=>�����=>��� p3.c=>.c?. e^'S^'C^1  �� ShUf'S?

Liuderberg is said to know how "to gamble as -well as ,to mine. One of the  Cape Nome passengers toll of having  witnessed Liuderberg lose $11,000 in  five hours at roulette.  About 2000 Welsh miners are likely to  be thrown out of work by a threatened  strike of tlu surface engineers and* other  mechanics, who are claiming shorter  hours. The negotiations on the subject  have-failed, and the surface men announce  that a .strike will begin on bhe date mentioned. It will then be practically impossible for the miners to continue underground.  John M. Stewart of Hamilton, Ontario,  a buyer for Wood, Valla nee & Co., wholesale hardware merchants, is dead.

Fred Lindborg, who has  been packing lately to prospects near  Gladstone, has had to break a trail  through two feeb of snow over the, summit near Norway mountain.  -������ "I read a piece the other day," said an  old locomotive engineer, "in which a railroad man said that 150 miles an hour was  one of the possibilities of future travel.  I venture to disagree with him, and I'll  tell you why���he doesn't take into account the human machine in the cab. I  don't doubt but they will build engines  that can stand a \150-mile gait, but they  cjui't build the engineers.  "On a fairly good roadbed one notices  very little difference between twenty-five  Jind fifty miles an hour. I mean the  strain on the nerves isn't very materially  increased ; but anything above that limit  is the pace that kills. The sensation is  simply indescribable in words. It seems  to jar every separate fibre in the body,,  and the tension is so terrible that one is  apt to feel the effects for days. The  average man can't stand many spurts at  even sixty-five miles Jin hour, lot alone  120. He conies out of such an ordeal 'all  broke up," and jumps when he hoars unexpected noises, like a hysterical woman.  My own theory is that the effect is produced mainly through the sight. You  have to look straight ahead, but at the  sjime time you see the things whizzing  past on both sides out of the tail of your  eye, and it is as if something had hold of  the optic nerve and was pulling it out  like a rubber baud. That's fi pretty  clumsy explanation, but it's as -near as I  can come to it. Many's the time I have  staggered when I got up from the seat in  the cab.  "That thing of staring straight ahead,"  continued the engineer, "is bound to get  on any man's nerves in the course of  time, particularly dining night runs.  One sees queer things, and I've had some  scares in my life that would have turned  my hair as white as inilk if hair really  turned white that way. The Avorst  trouble is with shadows. It's no uncommon thing for ji bird to flit across the  headlight and throw a shadow down the  track as big as ji box car. Of course it is  gone in Jin instant, but in just that heartbeat the nerves have been given a shock  that they may not recover from for a  week. I've luid that happen to me  several times. I would be tearing along  at a fifty-five or sixty-mile clip when all  of a sudden something big and black  av ouid loom out of the dark night between the rails and not four telegraph  poles ahead. Next second I would know  it to be the shadow of a bird, but as far*  as I was concerned the mischief was al-  readydone. Iliad had ji vision of sudden  death and a .sledge hammei\bIow on every  nerve centre in my system. ^  "The new electric light headlights arc  worse than theL.others as spook produpcrs.  They cast such sharp shadows that; a bug  moving over the glass will' make .you  think ji cow is lying just in front of your  j>ilot. I owe electric.lighb bugs ji number  of grudges  for little" jokes of tliat kind,  FULL LINE OF  and my experience isn't iu the least unusual. All engineers go through the  same thing. Tlie man who was never  scared is a man who is careless of the  lives entrusted to his vigilance, and such  a fellow isn't fit to be in the business.  There sire things that make me doubt the  practicability of 100 miles an hour and  the possibility of. 150. God help the engineer of such a train! He would go  mad in a week."  A Professional Politician.  J. II. Hofmeyer, the first professional  politician in South Africa, is now sixty  years old, wears gold spectacles in pub-  lie, and is bland or saturnine as occasion  demands. For many years a member of  the Cape parliament, he luis never held  ollice, and rarely spoken. A superb poli-  cal agent,-he long ago converted ;i minority of Dutch voters into a majority of  Dutch representatives, and created the  Afrikander. Bund. Although he luis  rarely 'obtained the credit for the idea,  he was the author of the plan for the fiscal union of the Empire, of which so  much was heard sit the colonial conference convened by Edward Stanhope, and  held in London, in 1887.  w  iti)  iti)  \&  * p"_> !">* &* l^>-  ���:gig  Appreciation  The Tremont Hotel  WlALOfJE _ TREGILLUS  PROPRIETORS  \&  i&  iti)  iti)  iti)  iti)  iti)  iti),  iti)  iti)  To dispose of an entire car of high-class iron and  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.

THE LOCAL NEWS OF THE TOWN  Captured After a Long Chase.  Provincinl constable Allan Forrester  ari-ived in Nelson last evening with a  prisoner, named Milton O'Howell, who is  wanted in Fergus county, Montana, upon  the tharge of murdering a man, named  llosling, iu June, 1.S98. Constable Forrester was accompanied by a representative of the Thiel Detective Agency, who  has been following O'Howell for the past  five mouths. The detective first got  track of his man in Texas, a-nd. from  tliere he followed him through several  states to Ban If, Alberta, on the main line  of the Caiuidian Pacific. From Banff  O'Howell was traced to Quesnelle Forks,  where he was arrested. O'Howell has  waived exti-adition proceedings, and will  go out on the steamer Alberta on Tlmrs-  day. Constable Forrester will accompany him to the boundary, where he will  be turned over to the United States  authorities.  But One More Chance.  The payment of arrears of taxes,  licenses, and public utility rates kept city  clerk Strachan and city treasurer Wassou  busy until a late hour last evening.

In  yesterday's payments, sewer rentals were  credited with $141.10, water rates $274.00,  electric light rates $249, real estate taxes  $551.4!., road taxes $108, and licenses  $17.50.
