 THOUSANDS OF BRITISH TROOPS  Are Arriving at Cape Town.  London, November 12.���A cable to the  New York Tribune says there Avere signs  of uneasiness among the Avar office staff  over the situation both at Ladysmith and  Kimberley.    I took measures yesterday  for jiscertaiuing definitely Avhether tliese  apprehensions Avere shared by the  commander in chief, and can state positively  that lord Wolseley  is  not  anxious  respecting the condition of affairs in South  Africa; but is  most confident that  the  worst is over, and  that  Ladysmith Av:ill  hold   out   until   reinforcements    enable  general White to-take the offensive,    lie  has   been   anxious,   but   not  since  the  troopships have begun to arriAre at Cape  Town.*    He can be quoted as saying that  general White only  needs  to  keep  still  aud remain on the defensive until relief  comes   from  Durban,  and  that  he  luis  already succeeded  in  holding  back  the  Boers from lower-Natal.   As a practical  proof that lord Wolseley is satisfied with  the outlook in South Africa, and is not in  dread of Jiny reverse of the Bi'itish arms,  .is the fact that he has gone out of London  for over Sunday..  Four troopships, conveying over  4700  men, arrived  at Cape  Toavu  yesterday,  and two of them Avith 2000  troops were-  dispatched for Durban.    If the  Aurania,  as reported, has landed 1000 men-at Cape  Town, it is a sign that Kimberley, as Avell  jis Ladysmith,.Avill be  speedily  relieved,  and that general Buller is determined to  iiA'crt a possibility of defeat on the Avestern border.   Tho best informed military  writers Jire not disposed to disbelieve.the  British garrison  at  De  Aar and Orange  River   Junction   will   be strongly  reinforced   until   Natjil   is    cleared   of   the  enemy.    The voyage from Cape Toavu to  Durban Avill require three days for making the distance, and it will  be fully two  Aveeks before lord  Methucn's  division of  10,000 men is ready to advance from Estcourt.    While  general  White is  closely  invested, lie understands the art of defensive Avarfarc,  Avhich   he learned   under  lord  Roberts  Avhen  he  avus shut up in  Cabul tAventy years ago. General White's  friends in London  assert that  he is not  only secure against long  range lire and  unscientific siege operations, but he Jilso  serves a useful purpose  in  holding  bjick  the Boer forces from raiding lower Njitjil,  Avhere the Bi'itish garrisons  cannot now  exceed  5000  men,  even   Avith  the ntiA'iil  brigade from  the  cruisers Terrible and  other ships.

It is evident that the  feeling of over-confidence prevailing" in  Kimberley is not shared by general Buller, for he 1ms ordered ji reconnoitering  force from De Aar to feel the enemy aud  find out Iioav difficult it will be to relieve  the garrison. This force had a brisk  skirmish on Friday Avith Free .State-  troops about 70 miles or so from Kim-'  beiley, aud lost tAvo officers, including colonel Keith-Falconer of the  Northumberland Fusileers, a brilliant  officer and popular in the army, avIio did  fine Avork under Kitchener up the Nile  three years agO. A midnight bulletin  from general Buller reported that the  troops were engaged hotly for several  hours. .  . ���  THE SITUATION AT LADYSMITH  Determined to Capture t Kimberley.  'London, Novembei* 12.���The AA'ar office  issued the following dispatch this afternoon from Buller, dated CapetoAvn, November 11, 11:10 p.m. : "Colonel Kekovvich,  British commander' at Kimberley, reports that'the enemy AA'ere very active on  November 4th. principally with tho object of driving oft" cattle.. The Orange  Free State troops retired rapidly before  colonel Turner without .firing. At 12:30  p.m. the Transvaal troops advanced  oii Kenilworth (a suburb of Kimberley).  Major Peakman Avith a squadron- Tof the  Khnberly liglit horse wasi hidin'g in the  "bush, aud gave the enemy a warm reception. The Boers retired firing. Colonel Turner reinforced major Peakman,  and at 12:40 the-*enetuy opened fire Avith  one piece of artillery at nearly 400 yards.  Two'-guns of tlie Diamond Field artillery  Avere then sent in to support colonel  Turner, but tlje enemy's guns had cejised  firing after the fifth round, consequently  our gnus did not come into action." The  enemy's artillery fire was not djimaging  aud its shooting Avas bad. Our casual-  ties'm the Kenihvorth engagement AA'ere  - -limited���lo���major- -Alford," of " the Cape"  police, Avho A\-as Avounded iu the  neck.   He is expected to recover.  Later in the day our pickets say the  Boei'S carried off six dead, probably  killed by our maxim. The total Boer loss  was probably, heavy, but had not been  estimated by colonel Kekowieh.  About 5:30 p. in. colonel Turner avjis  again in contact Avith ii new body of the  enemy on" Schrin's Drift road. From the  conning tower a largo number could be  plainly seen ivbout two miles to the north  of tho Kimberley reservoir and others  held-a Availed enclosure on their oavu  right flank. Colonel Turner opened with  a maxim and tAvo guns of the Diamond  Fiekl artillery sent in support. He came  to action at 5:47 p.m. jmd continued firing  until dusk,  Oftr further casualties there were:  Private Tubbe of the Cape police, who  was shot through the head and avIio died  ou his arrival at the hospital, aud sergeant Watermage of the Kimberley division "of the Cape police, who avjis  wounded, but who is doing well.  Colonel KekoAvich is unable to estimate the enemy's losses, but believes it  must iiave been severe, judging from the  precipitate retreat of the Boers.  At 0.10 p. m. the enemy opened fire  AA'ith a piece of artillery from Kapper's  dam ou Otto's kopje, the latter being  held by the Cape police. The enemy  inflicted no damage.  The news received from the seas of  Avar during the last twenty-four hours  has indicated, that the Dutch allies Avere  making a detei'iniued sittack on Kimberley at two points. General Cronje, who  commands the Boers investing Kimberley,  is one or their coolest and most energetic  generals, and is likely to make a desperate effort to effect the capture of the  Diagnosed by a Military Expert.  London, November 12.���Reviewing the  military situation as it stands, the military expert of the Westminster Gazette  says: "It is hardly too much to say that  tlie attention of the ciA'ilized Avorld is  uoav fixed on the situation at Ladysmith.  Ou the developments of that situation in  the immediate future rests our hope of a  speedy conclusion of the Avar. If general  White can maintain his position up to  1 November 26th, or perhaps a day or tAvo  longer, the danger in Natal AA'ill be ended.  Should he fail to do so, he will be  compelled to abandon his arms and  stoics and retire with heavy loss to the  southward, only to be brought up by  broken bridges Jind Boer forces in position on the Tugelacriver. It is impossible to predict Avhat may happen in con-  sidering the situation, to put it shortly.  The Aveak point in White's position is  that our men and-horses must be enduring daily jui ordeal Avhich cannot improve their fighting efficiency. Though  avc are told provisions are . in  plenty, yet there is danger that  ammunition, especially ammunition for  his big guns, may run short.  Under these circumstances it is iioav clear  that general Buller luis determined to  send lord Methuen's division, consisting  of the Guards brigade under general Col-  ville and the English brigade under general Hildeyard, ,io Durban, with orders to  break '"through -".he Boev southern-outposts at Coienso, and join hands with  general White. Unfortunately, the  assembly of this division jit Durban Avill  be a matter of some little time."  In discussing the reported accounts of treachery on the part of the  Boei-s, the Westminster Gay-ette's military  expert proceeds : " When an action  Avhich must necessarily brand the perpetration with infamy, is deliberatly  committed, with, no possible excuse of  hot blood or turmoil or confusion of a  great battle, AAre are entitled to assume  that such obloquy Avould not be incurred  Avithout some prospect of great and immediate advantage. What possible nd-  vantage could the Boers gain from the  destruction by artillery fire of a number  of refugees, Avhom they had just handed over to our charge, doubtless  Avith the object of embarrassing  White Avith a .number of additional  mouths tojteed. It must also be remem_.  beredthiit the outrage avus committed by  gunners, and not by riflemen. As the  guns are mounted at a great distance,  probably three or four miles f rojn our  pickets, do not all tliese considerations  point to the fact that the shots Avere  fired through a- misunderstanding, such  as might equally Avell havo occurred on  our side. So that Avithout further evidence  we ought not to convict the Boers of  wilful inhumanity and gross violence of  of the laAVs of Avar."  Lieutenant-colonel sir Wolf Barry of  the Engineer and Raihvay volunteer staff,  says: "In military matters Great Britain  is trading Avith insufficient capital. She  ought to add 100,000 men to her army."  Estcourt, Thursday, November 9.���  Heavy firing is now proceeding in the  direction of Ladysmith. It began at  daybreak. Some reports are so much  heavier than ever previously heard jis to  lead to the belief that the British naval  guns are again active.  The arrival from Ladysmith of lieutenant Hooper of the Fifth Lancers shoAVS  that communication with the garrison is  possible. He avjis anxious to rejoin his  regiment and started hence, accompanied  by a Natal policeman. They succeeded  in triurersing the Boer lines.  Dun ban, Wednesdjty, November 8.���  Captain Derby Scott of the first-class  protected cruiser Terrible has been appointed cammaudant here in jilace of  major Bethune, avIio "will assume active  command of the mounted Outlanders'  corps.  The march of the naval brigade ivith  tAventy guns through the toAA'n Avas an  inspiring scene. The band of the Terrible, stationed outside the town hall,  played popular airs, aud tlie croAvds along  tho line of march exhibited intense en-  tlmsiasm.  HOW GENERAL SYMONS MET HIS  Death at Gleneoe.  The true story of Iioav general Symons  received  his mortal   Avound    is   known  at the Avar office, but has not yet been  told to the Euglish press.    It is an  open  secret iu official circles, however.     The  extreme vagueness of the accounts  published plainly suggested that full information   had   been kept back.    General  Symonsr  in   command   of    the   British  forces at Gleneoe, Avas trying to drive  the Boers from the hills they had seized,  and Avas. accompanied by his staff, watching the action from the shelter of a clump.,  of trees, a target such as Boer sharpshooters delight in, but the-'bullets'fell-.-  short.     As    the      action     grew   j hot  the    British   forces     suffered     badly.  Syinons    ordered     the     Dublin   Fusil-  ers and the King's Royal Rifles to; advance oii the main position of the Boers.  The burgher marksmen met them with a  galling fire ; the lines  wavered ; the officers rallied their men, and again they  rushed forward to face the withering, hail  of bullets ; again the lines Avavered, three  of their gallant leaders being shot.   Once  more tlie undaunted officers got their men  to attack. On they went, pressing sturdily forward ; here aud there men dropped  by the Avay.   Once more the gallant fel-  Ioavs Avere so seriously checked that  rout  seemed impending.    Symons saAV  everything and instantly ordered the staff to  remain where it Avas, and alone galloped  out toward his men to lead them himself  to victory.    When he had gone half a  mile ��� he  reeled in his  saddle and   fell,  wounded, from his horse.    Major Ster-  bon, of .his staff, galloped up, and had  just reached the body of the commander  Avhen he himself Avas shot dead.    Symons  had preferred deatli  to  living AA'ith the  responsibility of what seemed destined to  be auother Majuba Hill.  General Symons, mortally wounded,  Avas borne fi'om the battlefield. He received the ghid tidings that the attacking infantry battalions ** had* once more  rallied and .carried the Boer position by  storm, though with a terrible loss. This  is how the brave old Indian fighter met  his dea,th. "   '  A Roman Paper Changes Front. . c .-  Rome, November 12.���All Rome is talking of an apparent change in the Vatican's  vieAvs of the war iu Soutli Africa. On  .Tuesday the organ of the government in  the course of am article^ observed that  Italian public opinion aa.is virtually  unanimous in supporting England, to  .whom Italy oAved her very existence. On  Wednesday the Roman * Observator, the  Avell-knoAvn Vatican organ, retorted Avith  a fiery editorial. It Avas quite true, it  said, that the Italian Liberals had reason  to be anglophile, because it Avas England  they had to thank for the triumph of free  masonry and the fall of the pope's temporal power, but England Avould sooner  or later find to her cost that she had  assisted iu the triumph of the devil in  Italy and Soutli Africa. Only the other  day, the same paper Avas expressing the  earnest hope for the success of the  British arms.   TWElVElOHANMESBUBtTMINES^  WorkiD/r Fall Forces.  Cai**e Toavn, November 8.���[Dehiyed].  ���A dispatch from Pretoria, dated yes-  terday, says that the foreign consuls  hold weekly meetings at the residence of  the Italian diplomatic agent to discuss  inattei'sof international interest. According to the same correspondent, the Rose  Deep and Fereiera Deep, Avith ten other  mines, are Avorking. White and black  labor is plentiful and the mills are busy  turning out gold.  A Foolish Resolution.  London, November 12.���The folloAving  ironical resolution Avas adopted by acclamation at a recent meeting in East  Mayo, Ireland, presided over by Michael  Davitt: "Resolved, that we cannot refrain from expressing our approval ofthe  conduct of some thousand British mules,  iu the neighborhood of Ladysmith, nor  express the sincere hope that some fitting testimonial be made to the common  .sense of those intelligent animals in fol-  loAving the example of British soldier*-* in  running into the camp of the victorious  Boers."    Mines at Argenta.  White <fc Ottis, owners of the Lost  Mountain mine, have commenced packing  provisions to the property and intend  keeping a force of men Avorking sill  Avinter. The Levina mine, wliich is also  tributary to this point, will do likeAvise.  Auother season will, no doubt, see many  more mines being worked, as there has  been some fine prospects located so near  Argenta that the town Avill reap the  whole benefit of their working.  Fernie Astonished Him,  Hon. J. Fi'ed Hume, minister of mines,  returned from Fernie yesterday and left  this morning for Boundary points. He  will probably be in Nelson for a day on  his return. Mr. Hume aa'jis much surprised at what he ,saAV and heard Jit  Fernie. The coal company has 000 men on  the payroll, unci orders are coming iu .-o  fast for both coal find coke that they  cannot bo filled. .Sixty men have commenced Avork on the company's mines at  Michel creek. As at all properties managed by Toronto* jneii, the Avorkers at  Fernie are Avell treated and are Avell  satisfied. __   Woman Doctors Not Wanted.  London, November 12.���The Marquis  of LansdoAvne, .secretary of state for Avar,  has Avritten a letter to Miss Ward, M D.,  avIio volunteered to go to Soutli Africa as  a physician, in AA'hich he says that while  he appreciates her offer, he is not prepared at pi'esent to allow Avonian doctors to  join the force in the field.  A First Payment Made.  J. A. Dewar and his associate'! have  given a bond on the Good Hope group of  claims, on Wild Horse creek, and received a first cash payment. Work Avill  be commenced at once.  Treason in Ireland.  London, November 3 2.���Notices have  been sent/ throughout North Cork calling  upon the people "to remember 1790 and  prevent enlisting in the Knglish army,  Avhich is trojison to Ireland." The documents set forth that "Irishmen in the  English .service Avho have been sent to  Africa   .vill have to   fire  against Irish  A TOWN DEFENDED BY SANDBACS  ' And a Soldier.  A feAv facts about the toAvn of Mafeking,   on   the   AA'estern   border   of  the  Transvaal, which has been beleagured by  the Boers almost since  the  opening of  the Avar, may* be interesting.    It  is  not,  perhaps, altogether tair to call Mafeking  defenceless; ^ for,  during the  past   feAV  Aveeks of tension,  the  place   has   been  more or less protected by sandbags and  -hastily   thrown   up   earthworks.      But  -.'Mafeking lies  entirely in the open, bare  on the veldt, Avhich is jis flat as a pancake.  vyA few isolated kopjes, an ant-heap every  ;here and there, a clump of bushes under  three "feet high���-these are the only things  that break the monotony of the landscape.  The veldt runs right aAvay to the far distant sky-line'*, and only a few scattered  tiu shanties mark the liue of railway.  If -the traveler Avere adventurous  enough to. traVel by the through express  from Cape Town to Buliuvayo, aAvay up  in far Rhodesia, he Avould find Mafeking  '���practically-half* Avay betAveen the two.  To be exact, it is 870 miles from the  former, and 804 miles from the latter.  Kimberley is 144 miles soutli. This railway, by the Avay, is the main Cape to  Cairo route, and Avill one day carry the  unavoidable globe-trotter right through  Africa from end to eud.  There is nothing palatial about Mafe-  king. . Norinallj. it is a simple little  township of a few hundred r souls. Primarily, it is a trading station Avith the far  north, aud there are many stores of greater  or less importance. Grain stores, forage,  stores, tinned'goods, saddles, rifles, ammunition, even furniture, can, or could, be  bought there!. In the center of the main  street is the market-place, surrounded by  galvanized iron houses and stores, each  Avith its little raised veranda before it,  painted green and Avhite, and many of  the more miscellaneous shops bearing  Aveird Indian names. For the enterprising Mohammedan trader has found his  Avay throughout South'Africa, and competes A7ei-y keenly and successfully AA'ith  the white men.  Colonel Baden-Powell, that veteran  South African Avari-ior, is iu command of  an irregular, but Avholly reliable force  of some 600 men, encamped near Mafe-  king." He"is an excellent officer, a  good sportsman, an inimitable, entertainer, and a bit of a literary SAvell to  boot. /He went through the Matebele  wars, and gained experience, honors, and  ���no Avounds. In some way he seems to  bear a charmed life, because he is a l-eek-  less sort of a felloAV, and fears no amount  of danger. He also has a quite remarkable gift of loejility. That is to say, he  is able by some extraordinary instinct, to  find his way about a totally unexplored  country,' and always to turn up just  where he Avished���or therejiboutS. The  natives think he is "uncanny." He  played polo in Malta, Avhen he av as A.  D, C. to his uncle, geueral Smythe,  and nearly got killed. He lias shot  big game, Avherever big game avjis to  be shot, and then came home quietly  and written books about it. His great  work on pig-sticking is a classic.

The Boers are making a brave fight  against the. tyranny and oppression of  England. Let no,Irishman dare raise a  hand against them. In all the Irish  towns jmd villages recruiting-sergeants'  are trying to entrap thoughtless Irish  boys to join the Biitish army." The  document emanates from the Irish Transvaal committee and the government is  urged by the ministerial press to prosecute its authors. The manifestation of  sympathy AA'ith the Boers through public meetings and the press in Ireland is  bitterly resented here.

From the information Avhich has come to  the policgjt appears that Wainewright  succeeded in   victimizing close upon a  dozen merchants by the issuing of checks  upon the Bank of Montreal, in which he  had   Ub;  funds.   In   net"irly ��� every   ease  Wainewright    post-dated     the    checks  Avhich he issued, the  date of the checks  iiirinost' instances  being November  8th.

The present programme  calls for driving along the-lead in the No.  1 tunnel, sinking a shaft from the le\'elof  the No. 2 tunnel, aud the driving of a  crosscut below the loAver tunnel. The ,  contract for the performance of 100 feet  of Avork is merely in the nature of a  guarantee, as the syndicate proposes .to  push development as rapidly as possible  during the life of the bond. ,A creAv of  from ten to tAvelve men will be employed.  There are comfortable cabins on the  property. The standard rate of Avages  will be paid by the contractors.  Rossland's Ore Shipments.

Last  week the War Eagle and (/'enter Star  mine-5 shipped 'IISO tons of ore to the  .-smelters at Trail and Nelson, as against  _*1'M1 From the Le Roi asul Iron Mask  mine.'-, shipped to the smeltei' at North-  port. The total of the Rossland ore  .shipment.*"* amounted tO"..*>"3(5 tons, of the  approximate value of $7.*5,000.  Two Aro Kept at Work.  All the foreigners introduced into the  Payne mine, Slocan district, luive quit  work excepting tAvo. Avhom the union  prefer to haA'e remain as evidence of the  contract entered into by the management. Several neAA' arriAvils haA-e put in  appearance during the Aveek, but as last  as tliey come and the situation is explained to them they lift their packs and  depart. The mine oAA-ners arc considerably out of pocket by this their latest  move to re-start their properties.  Four Miners" Unions in the Slocan.

WEIR  Why don't they do the proper thing,  as large OAvners in BogustoAvn, and subscribe liberally to opening a rojid to their  oavu property?  With regard to the treatment of the  traniAvay company by the city council.  All that the city asks of the tramway  compauy is to honestly carry out their  contract in letter and spirit, and to  recognize the fact, that although their  charter gives them certain privileges, free  of cost and taxation, it does not altogether destroy the rights of every taxpayer to .the uninterrupted use of the  streets. The city council recognizes no  individuals in the traniAA'Jiy company;  they are a corporation, eArery dolhir of  Avhich is foreign capital. They are not  here for philanthropy, and Jit the same  time tluit Ave Avelcome them, Ave do it entirely on a business bjisis of mutual interests. There can be no question of  spite, they haA'e a Avritten contract.  At the inception, some corporations al-  Avays suffer from the "big head." It is the  old story of those who acquire something  for nothing, but" time generally cures  this trouble. Disputes will ahvays arise  and will be settled on their oavu merits.

It would be unfair to attack the tramway company for the condition of its  track until tlie l'oad is completed, yet  an inspection of a portion of the track ab  laid on Front street would Icjid the average observer to the opinion that the company did not intend to live up to the spirit  of its agreement with the city.

The BoKustown Road Imbroglio/  To tub Editor op Tiir Trhjunk : Referring Lo the di&pute ovei- the closing of  the Bogustown  road by   the   tnnuAA'ay  company and au editorial of the Miner on  the subject, I aaouM like to make public  a few facts.  In the first place, the first official notice  received by the council  was on  Monday  evening, Novembei Oth, when the letters  from  the  tramway  company were first  laid before them.   This AVas several houi's  tifter the rojid hud been closed.   On Tuesday the mayor, city engineer and myself  visited- the-scene���of���the- trouble,-and-  fouud the road blocked.   The mayor decided that no money could be expended  by the city, and that it Avas an  affair for  the citizens and the l'liihA-ay company to  adjust.   The same evening I met captain  Duncan   and  discussed  the question  at  length.    I tusked him to have the matter  left open for tAventy-four hours, as it Avas  putting the merchants and public generally to expense and great inconvenience.  He emphatieallj** declared he would not  open the road   unless  $800 avus  paid.    I  tried to explain that this action Avas only  injuring the citizens of the town, aa'Iio  had dealt very liberally Avith them.    The  only  ausAver   1  got  avus  that somebody  had  to pay  for it,  and   that  delay  of  freight, etc.,  cut no figure,    Mr. Peters  Avas of the same opinion.  Wednesday morning 1 met a number  of merchants, and we intervieAved the  representatives of the government and  raihvay company, Avhen it was decided  to open the new road at a cost of $450,  and the contract avjis let on tho understanding that, provided the council did  not assist, the citizens would pass around  the hat for the necessary funds.  There is no getting around the fact  tluit the action of the trainAA'jiy company  Avas taken Avith a vieAV to force somebody to pay. They blamed the council  because nobody else did anything, but  they kneAv that the council only met  once every tAvo Aveeks, unless ctilled together by the mayor. Personally, I  never sjiav their letters tmttl today, as I  did not attend the hist meeting. If the  traniAvay company could open the road  on Friday, Avhy did they keep it closed  Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday?   It  simply   means   public   censure and the J ^^^^"hichVmte&^^  opening of the new road changed  their   .y_* NEU5QN SAW & pLAMNft MJLm ^^  meas. J.

I arrived safely jit Nelson, and halting  a�� the gate of an inn that made a tolerable appearance, I hadno sooner alighted  than'the landlady "came out and received  lue with  great; civility."    My experience  on  rejiching the go-ahead! little ���city, of  Nelson was much the same as that of Gil  Bias in his famous adventures at Penna-  flor, but instead  of ji mule to convey me  thither I had "all the comforts of a home"  in  a Camidiau  Pacific raihvay carriage.  There's a degree of depravity about that  C. P. R. It goes everywhere.    It has wiggled its way into the hearts of Canada,  and now,  having encompassed the earth  in a zone of boats by .water-way- and-car,,  by land, it proceeds to run, '��� vein, like,  through the whole system of our country.  It waxes ftit, too, onus.    Its directors jue  wealthy men, Jind are styled nabobs by  those of us wlio dependupon them.for. a  "lift"  in  our journeys  here  and thei-e.  "They're, making money  out of us," we  cry and-*we run to this little Screamer,  and  that little published Screecher, and-  Ave show forth  the   "earnings"  of this  great corporation, and we place our hands  on our wind-filled bellies Jind shout, "the  couutry is  being, devoured."    Its  gross  'earnings  are blue  pills to  swallow ;  its  dividends  are  nauseating  to  know; its  gross profits give us waking nightmares,  ' and we make political soups off its savors,  whereat  we dine and damn tuid djiuce  hornpipes of "rebellous   rage.   ' But - the  * giant arms aro  growing tipace ; they are  reaching out to illimitable distances, they  are bearing the burden of our resources,  _ in grain, in ore, iu wji ter wealth ; they are  carrying our timbei's; our immense horse  and cjitfcle aud sheep ranches pour their  living freight into its open pjilms, and the  thunderous thud of its iron hoof is heard  even  to  the furthermost  parts  of   the  earth.    A great corporation ?    Aye, verily!    Go west and see its interesting"lines  like the fine network of veius throughout  the land.    Go north aud note its hunuin  .freight.    Go east and watch its branching  chaunels of trade through which pours  our Canadian harvest of hopes.     Aye,  truly a great corporation !    A great brain  center, Jit its head whence flows thought,  thought for tomorrow.    Its wealth is being showered like manna throughout the  land,, it is a great labor-born idea, that  railway; it is the vein in the Canadian  Maple Leaf; it gives to the present life,  hope, energy, wealth and occupation, and  to the future it gives the gauntlet of de-  fhiuce to failure���aye, does it not ensure  success ?   "Come." said.my hostess, "look out up-  ou the hills under ji September sunrise."  I looked out and there lay before my eyes  a, glad little burst of the glory of a newborn day. Down, far down, ci'adled the  embryo city whence rose Jin hundred  spirals of smoke. The many colored  homes scattered in that little bowl-shaped  vtilley looked slumberous under the rising  sun. The loug lines of streets leading  town-wards were empty of life, but tlie  stir of humanity wjis on the air in the  echoing puff from mill and steamboat, in  the clang of a drill Jit work somewhere  out of sight, in the hoarse roar of departing locomotives, dragging ji chain of  freight laden cars down ji sloping path, in  the ceaseless breathings of a dark, smoke  enveloped smelter, sending out gushing,  of its inexhaustive breath; iu the up-  lieavjil of earth where human ants toiled  -till day loug from sunrise until sunset; in  the rumbling rush of iron buckets, each  bearing its double ton of rock down the  di7,Ky heights and in the force of nature  flowing in white crystals adown the  mountain side, andonruslriiig to the river  below. Newness, newness, everywhere.  J was standing by the side of, and under  the sheltering roof of a great-grand-neice  of lord Macau lay. My lady hostess was  the neice of a baronet, and also of an  authoress of repute. She busied about  her little cottage with a quiet grace that  showed her nobility of blood, but she  took up the burden of pioneei'hood with a  strength of woman's will that betrayed.  jret more her nobility of mind and heart.  It brouisJit thoughts to the surface of the  mind;, thjit little quiet scene within the  cottage.at Nelson, aiid that great pulsing  life, the new birth of the new world without; what a prospect for the generations  unborn; What themes for historian and  singer!

It was born a giant,  and its sister tpwns, much older and more  spoiled and petted by the hand of fate,  now look up at baby Nelson :and wonder  why prince Charming, surhamed Luck,  has borne Nelson tiwjiy, leaving them behind.    I believe the people of a town can  mjtke or mar its future.    The people of  Nelson are a happy human blending of  good heart, good nature aud good breeding.    There's a refinement about the environs of the little city that wakes  the  best .instincts in  you    on  touching its  threshold.    There's a glow of humanity  abroad, and they meet you Avith outstretched  hand  and  give you greeting,  not as strangers, not as. passers-by, but as  one of themselves..   The business men ot  Nelson "stand to their guns," so to speak.  They have faith in their future, and they  watch the interests of. little things. They  have  civic head.s  with brains, Jind they  salary their civic heads well.   Brain has  its equivalent  cash vjilue in Nelson, and  I believe it is not saying too much to add  that   its newspapers -are' brighter,- its  churches better filled, its markets better  stocked,    its    revenues   (comparatively)  larger, its navigation returns: greater and  showing in black and white figures larger  numerals than any other town of its size  in Canada.    Nelson is the terminus ofthe  Crow's Nest line of railway; it is the commercial pivot   of the   whole  Kootenay  country; it holds the termini of the Nelson  & Fort "Sheppard:   railway, "of  the  Kootenay & Columbia railway, and of the,  Slocan River railway.     It   is provided  with public buildings,*'land registry office,,  court   house,   etc     The   new   business  blocks, now in y course pf   construction,  show grand faces of'native granite and  white marble, veined by the  glittering  dust   of metal   that   rajikes   men  mad.  This stone, when polished, equals in appearance the purest of marble,  and is, I  am informed,  found in  grejit quantities  jit a short distance from the city.    Other  buildings, public in nature, are being considered.    They don't ask much of mamma,  those good Nelson folk, but they ask that  what they do  get shall be of the  best.  ���When I visited the gay little city, its  thoroughfares weie uptorn by reason of  water  aud  gjis and sewer  mains being  laid down throughout the city.   The city  owns  its own  water and  electric light  services,  and a power unrivalled  is at  their    door���pretty   Bonnington   Falls.  Property had jit no   time reached the  boom liinit, but a steady advance on the-  market is shown and nearly every householder there is owner of his own roof-  tree.   Such pretty homes as are to be  seen iu Nelson; no great architectural attempts, it is tine, iu general, but a neatness, a daiutyuess, a  refinement of surroundings, a freshness and sense of beauty in all.   There is the well kept lawn,  the small patch of garden, the nurtured  vine, the sheltering tree, and neat fences  through ,which you see   hammock and  swing, and everywhere children, children.  On Stanley street���a decline almost impossible for prairie-bred feet to manage���  you can see rows of flower gardens,, each  one being"witlrthe other"in__riendly"con"-  trast.    At one place I saw pears growing,  and ripe upon the branch.   It was really  almost beyond belief.   But you find that  tho cold registered in January���the coldest month in the year���seldom touches  below zero, and the winter lasts scarcely  three mouths.   At the door the Koote-  nay river flows, and on its bosom ugly  btirges, lumber laden, are towed by busy  little tugs that   go about   like   living  things/    There, too, great steamboats lie  at pier and  wharf, jmd whirling wheels  of mill and smelter,   combined, give a  never ending coming and going message.  It luts the short-cut route to the seaboard,  too.   The Crow's   Nest railway   curves  Nelsonwai'ds, and taps the old main line  of the Canadian   Pacific, aud  now the  branching lines of minor railroad hopes  intersect- like the lines upon the palm of  your hand.  Everybody in Nelson is occupied.    It is  a human hive, jmd the drone has no place  to lay, his. head, and: labor is paid tl.e  highest price.  There jire-~churches in Nelson, and  newspapers. The one acts as an antidote  ron the other, perhaps. Thei'e are  good; preachers in both lines, and as a  musical center, Nelson is rich in tone. I  heard beautiful singing there, a madame  Brougham, a retired operatic artist who  holds classes���and a more magnificent  mezzo-soprano exists not in Western  Canada.  " By. the courtesy of Mr. Snowden, ofthe  Htill Mines, your correspondent was allowed to go through the great smelter, to  watch the tons of ore being thrown into  the crucible of flame, to see it come forth  molten lava below from the heart of the  devouring furnace, a stream of living fire;  to see the   violet flame consume itself,  lead coming forth a red stream and copper pouring a lava tide; out of that hell,  of flame it came iu a seething tide, pouring its wealth a molten mass into moulds  that wei-e whirled;away on mimic earsj  The Silver King mine is one of the famous  mines of Kootenay.   It lies five   miles  from the city, and 500 feet down in, its  bowels, two hundred men are ; digging,  digging, day by day.   Throughout the  smelter   a small  army of   men,  sw.eat-  'yisaged, bore the great charges of rock;  and a shaking of rafter and: trembling of:  floor answei'ed to the deep roar of that  womb ;of flame.   Tons of ore lay cradled  in the furnace as I looked, and no more  .magnificent sight is to be seen than the  bare-armed,   bare-breasted   workers below, with"their javelins of iron thrusting  at the'flaming,'fiery, monster, touching  the glowing heart, and then throwing  open tlie   sluice-gates    of  wealth   aiid  watching the magic tide come down a  mighty gush of flame in a fascinating  ��� glow that makes your heart leap at the  sight.   They're a  grimy lot of fellows  down there in  that workroom, but as  happy as larks in their work, well paid,  well pleased with themselves,"well sjitis-  fied with their new western home,' and  : handling with a careless touch that metal  for which men's anid women's souls have  been lost.      _r __  Manipulating Copper Shares.  : Of late, however, a disastrous change  has come over the copper share market.  Stocks have been tumbling' in dire confusion,* aud the great Amalgamation itself  has not been able to maintain the dignity  it ventured to assume in the eyes of the  investing world. The general shrinkage  in copper values has been something enormous, and, if we pjiy heed to the quidnuncs of the street, the end is not yet.  Now, in the real copper situation there is  nothing to justify this rapid decline  in values, that is, if former prices were  based upon actual conditions rather  than upon deliberate manipulation. All  traders in the metal are agreed that  this yeai-'s production cannot have-  any marked influence on the price. They  understand that the projected combination of the leading copper companies failed to realize its proclaimed object. - The  output of the, mines does not keep pace  with the demand, and while consumers  may have fair supplies on hand, the time  is approaching when their orders must  be increased.    Consequently, it is fair to  FULL LINE OF  assume, as; John Stanton says, that all  the facts are favoi'able to a bull market.  Taking this for granted, what is the  matter with coppers? Conditions point  to a steady, market, and yet copper, stocks  are either naturally gravitating ' or being  'forced to a, lower level. The American  Mining .News learns from a reliable source  that the combine which boomed coppers  early in tne year is now using its vast  machinations to suppress them.. Our in-  formjmt writes: "The combine intends to  reduce the price of copper, if .possible,  demoralize copper shares, make it difficult to carry Amalgamated on loans, and  rjiise sheol generally with the mining  stock market. While this is going on,  the combine will load up at its own  prices. Then about January-1st Anialga-  mated and'Anaconda will come forward  with dividends that will send their stocks  booming, and the combine will unload  and make;money both ways."

Robert Kerr wjis fined $50 by stipendiary magistrate Turner on Saturday  for a breach of tlie Water Clauses Act.  Kerr applied to the city foi* a. permit to  connect with the city's Avater mains, but  the permit was refused until Kerr paid  arrears due for water supplied him as a  contractor. Kerr then made the coiinec-  tion'without the consent of the city, and  was fined $50 and costs in consequence.  S. S. Taylor 'appeared for Kerr and W. A.  Galliher for the prosecution.  Albert Jeffries, who accitlently shot  himself several days ago, had an arm  amputated on Saturday night by ; Dr.  LaBau. Jeffries has a -wife and several  small children, and they are "said to be  almost destitute.  A pleasant party, followed by a dance,  was given at the residence of Miss May  Keefe at Ymir, it being the occasion of  her 19th birthday. She was "the ,: recipient of ii number of beautiful presents from her many friends.
