 Isfifi'"'-  JIY;  JOHANNESBURG   DESERTED  BY  Its Entire Outlander Population.  New    Yoijk,    Noveinbor    7.���Gustav  Selilnelit arrived  in  tliis city yesterday  on  tlie steamer  St. Paul,  liaving  come  through     from     Johannesburg,    Soutli  Africa, without  -stopping.    Mr. Schlacht  wns tho publisher of a paper in Johannesburg called The African Jewish Gazette.  In talking of the  position  prior  to  his  departure, Mr. Sehlacht said:   "I never  saw such a mixed  up and  lawless place  jis  was Johannesburg when 1 left there.  Before  this  war  tho  city  had an Outlander  population  of   about   00,000,   of  which tho greater part was English, with  the Gei'inans next, while 1 doubt if there  were  over  100  Boers  in the place.    Of  course, the  city goveriiiuent and  police  were  iu  the  hands  of   the  Boers,   but  few Boers  cared   to  live thei'e, because  the city contained so many Outlanders,  whom    they   hate.      The   week   before  I    left    Johannesburg,    30,000    foreign  residents left the city, and 1 understand  that 30,000 made their exodus during the  week    immediately   following    my    departure.    They iiiado  straight for Cape  Colony, and the'trains  were jammed  to  suffocation.    In one small ear  I  saw  50  men nnd women;   both  were  forced  to  travel in cattle curs.    Meanwhile n verit-  able reign of terror prevailed  in Johannesburg.     The Boer soldiers, which were  stationed there in force, simply laid their  hands on everything that  was  possible  and   carried  it  off   without   ceremony.  Flour,  oats,  potatoes,  and  all  sorts  of  provisions   Avere   seized   by  them,   jmd  horses they made especial prey of for use  in the army.    One foreigner wjis held up  Avhile  driving  in  the  streets, his horse  taken from the slnifts and led away, and  he   was   jeeringly   informed   that    the  walking   was   good.     The  Boei-s looted  everything without mercy and it will be  a pretty state of affairs that we foreigners  -will find if Ave  ever  get  back  there.    I  left my partner in charge of my printing  office, but I never expect to see it again.  I   do   not   think   that   the   Boers   can  accurately be  called a  civilized  nation.  They still have  savage  traits  and  they  are uniformly testy and quick-tempered."  '^fti  WEDNESDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER 8,  1899.  POBLISHKD AT NELSON. BRITISH COLUMBIA.  DAILY (BY MAIL) $6 A YEAR: "WEEKLY, $2.  . Boers Asked for an Armistice.  London, November H.���According to  .special dispatches from Estcourt, the  Boers on Thursday asked a day's armistice. General White agreed to this*on  condition that they would make no movement. The British military balloon,  however, detected the Boei-s massing to  the south and general .White thereupon  renewed the attack.'  Boer reports have reached Capetown  to the effect that on the arrival at  Johannesburg of the news of the Boor  reveise at Eland's Laagte, the whole  Rand speci.il police force was sent to the  front with guns fi'oin Johannesburg fort,  the fort being left without a, gun and the  garrison with only thirty men.  The men of the Eighteenth. Hussars  who were captured as Dundee first took  refuge in a Kaffir kraal, wheie they  fought stubbornly, only surrendering  after four shells, liad exploded in the  kraal.    Mafeking Still Holding Out.  London, November 8.���News has -just  arrived from  Mafeking  showing that up  to October 25tii-the  Boei'S continued the  bombardment, firing as *��any as 300 shells  in thirty-six  hours,  though'causing but  little  damage  smd  wounding  only four  men.   That day they closed in all Jiround  _the town and made a determined attempt-  to rush it.   The garrison turned out to ji  man, and   delivei-ed   a  terrifie  rifle jmd'  Maxim iiro, whieli speedily stampeded the  Boers, who were driven over mines which  exploded and scattered them in all directions.    It is believed at Mafeking that the  enojny suffered severely and is not likely  to make another attempt to storm the  town. ______  Watching the Conflict With. Profound Interest.  Washinuton, November 7.- Tho Russian ambassador, count Cas&ino, wlio is  ���just back from a long visit to Europe, was  seen at the Itussian embassy today, and  talked on international questions which  luive engaged public iitteution recently.  As to the European sentiment concerning  the South African war, count Cassino  s-tiid: "Of course, all Em-ope is watching  this conflict with profound interest and  concern, but it is the interest of observance, juid there is no suggestion or thought  of any intervention or inove of any kind  from outside quarters. The loss of life  whieli is occurring is regrettable, and it  is to the interest of Jill that peace should  be speedily restored."  A State Pawnshop.  Chicago, November 7.���If present predictions are fulfilled, the new pawnshop  wliich opened this morning under the aus  pices of the State Pawners' Society, will  have a demoralizing effect oil the business of those pawnbrokers who have been  accustomed to charging several hundred  per cent interest on smsill loans. The  new shop is to be managed on philanthropic principles for the benefit of the poor  and needy who desire to relieve their  wants by temporarily placing their chattels or personal effects in pawn.   A rate  of ono pei" cent interest and one-half per  cent a inonth for .storage and insurance  will be charged.  Knows   Nothing   of Arbitration   Proposals.  Beulin, Novomber 7.���Regarding the  alleged scheme for arbitrating the Transvaal question, a semi-official dispatch has  been issued as follows: "Nothing whatever is known hei'o of a common plan of  action upon the part of Russia, France,  or Spain in the Tran.svtial question. In  any case, it may be positively stated that  no such plans have been brought to the  knowledge of the German government  from any quarter whatever, aud therefore it has never been in the position to  reject jiny such or similar pioposals."

London, November 7.���An official dispatch from Ladysmith, dated Monday,  November 0th, says: ''There has been a  cessation of hostilities since Friday. Only  one Kaffir was killed by the Boer bombardment. The total British loss wjis  eight killed, including captain Knapp and  lieutenant Brabant, and twenty wounded,  in Thursday's and Friday's engagements.  The town is well provisioned and it is believed is entirely safe."  It is announced in a special dispatch  from Capetown, dated Sunday November  5th, morning, that the Bi'itish have been  victoiious in an engagement at Ladysmith, and that the Boer loss was very  heavy, including 2000 prisoners.  Pibtbrmaritzburg, November 4 ���  Afternoon.��� The general commanding  says the line of communication north'of  Estcourt is entirely stopped.  Later���Evening.���The British forces  at Ladysmith, it now appears, were engaged twice successfully on Thursday  jmd Friday. It is reported that the  cavalry scored heavily, and that the infantry did great execution with bayonets, the Gordon Highlanders carrying  the principal Boer position at the point  of the bayonet. The Boers lost heavily  in killed aud wounded jmd a number  surrendered.          Thursday's Battle.  Durban, Natal, November 5.-5 p.m.���  A native eye witness of Thursday's battle near Ladysmith says the Boers were  caught on the open ground and raised  several white flags. The British then advanced, without firing, to accept the surrender of the Boers, but were received  aa ith a volley at close range. Enraged at  this treachery, the lancers, hussars and  dragoons, followed by the infantry with  fixed bayonets, charged through the  enemy and did great execution. A lot of  prisoners and loot were captured. Another battle on Friday with the Boers was  proceeding, according to the native, in  the south, with a similar result.  Friday Nfeht's Fight.  Estcourt, Natal, November 5.���A reliable -native has brought confirmation of  Friday night's fight south of Ladysmith.  A reconnaissance in force was made by a  British division near the Coienso column  which had been attacked 'by the Boers.  The .British infantry charged the Boers,  who were strongly posted on Globlers-  kloof hill, and drove them down on the  plain toward the Tugela river, when the  British cavalry, executing a fine flank  movement, charged the Boers and almost  annihilated them. The plain avjis strewn  Avith slain Boers. An armored train left  for Coienso with a company of Dublin  Fusileers and a railroad engine carrying  a staff to repair the track. This is supposed to have occurred Saturday, as no  firing avjis heard today (Sunday).  Estcourt, Niital, November 5���Evening.���It is now possible *co furnish official  details of Friday's fighting around Ladysmith. The Boer artillery fire Avas accurate and Avell sustained, but ineffective.  The British cavalry avus constantly out,  tlie~inviEistm^t~lK)t~b"eii*rg"close ehougirto  prevent this. Cavalry and artillery under colonel Broe]clcliui'Srt, about noon,  drove the enemy from all their positions  with great slaughter. This attack avjis  directed against a reported move of the  enemy toward Maritxburg. Our artillery  shelled three of the enemy's guns into  The British casualties Ave re  The Boers are now shelling the  Their artillery was handled well,  doing little damage. The Boers  profited by a flag of truce on Thursday  to send in a Transvaal artillery officer,  disguised as an ambulance driver, with  the wounded, to observe tho action of  the Boer artillery lire  silence,  slight,  toAvn.  but  lb  London, November 7.���Tonight's Avel-  como despatches from the front have rent  the A-eil of gloom enveloping Ladysmith,  showing the British garrison not merely  standing on the dogged defensive, but  executing a series of brilliant sorties. Accounts fi-om different sources agi-ee that  the official declaration of Thursday's engagement, as "an effective shelling of the  Boers' laager," Avas unduly modest. It  appears that general White sent a strong  force of ca\Talry and infantry to attack  the Boers at Tatham's farm, about ten  miles to the iiorthivest, nejir Bester's, and  apparently achieved a surprise, the Boers  being caught on the open veldt and cut  to pieces and tlieir camp captured. Encouraged by this success, general White  decided to risk an even more important  engagement on the following day, Avhich  avjis justified becjiuse it has been successful.  Ladysmithr has been isolated, and a  Boer force had intercepted the railway  between Ladysmith and Coienso. This  force on Friday had descended upon  Coienso, and, as shoAvn by the dispatches  jroiii Estcourt, had compelled a hurried  abandonment of Coienso and a retirement of the Bi-itish to Estcourt. General  White had ascertained that the Boers  Avere attacking Coienso, but Avas not  aware of the British retirement. Ho  had determined, therefore, to attack the  Boers in the rear, thus hoping to achieve  the double object of drawing off an  attack upon the garrison of Coienso and  possibly of reopening communication  southward.  The Boers had advanced soutlnvard until they lwid occupied the hills north of  Tugela river, which command Coienso, on  the other side of the stream. The hills  slope to a plain, that reaches to the banks  of the Tugela. General White's division  caught the Boers in the rear, and after  they had been shelled the British  infantry stormed the position. Meanwhile the British cavalry SAvept  around the hills, and as the  retreating enemy descended into the  plain, Avith-British biiyonets behind them  and the liver in front of them, they Avere  charged by the cavalry and seemed to  perish, almost to ji man. The British  then returned to Ladysmith Avithout  coming into touch with the Coienso  garrison, Avhich had retired to Estcourt.  Sunday's dispatch from Estcourt, Iioav-  ever, showed- that an armored train lmd  been sent back to Coienso to repair the  line, and the next neAVS may possibly be  the restoration of communication Avith  Ladysmith. While the Bi'itish troops  are thus engaged in successful endeavors  to Avipe out the Nicholson's Nek disaster,  the situation inside Ladysmith, as shoAvn  by an official dispatch from the government aud dispatches from Estcourt, is  -satisfactory, with a hope that general  White may yet completely retrieve his  reputation and his force may emerge  trium phjuit from the ordeal through  which it is now passing.  London, November 8.���Evidently more  detailed reports of general White's doings  at Ladysmith will be received before the  publitTwill- b"e"able"~to���form" an-idea~of  Avhat has happened. Reports from various sources show that another impor-  ant reconnaissance or engagement occurred on Saturday to the south of  Ladysmith, and a Capetown newspaper  reports that 2000 Boers Avere captmed  there. The suggestion of sir Red vers  Buller, in his dispatch to the Avar office  on Sunday, that the name of general  French had beeu given in mistake foi'  that of colonel Rrocklehur-l in advices  to him by pigeon post from Durban, i.s  now explained bya dispatch from Pietcr-  marit/burg, Avhich says that geueral  French has left Durban for Cape Colony.  Evidently general Buller knew thi.s.  ANOTHER DIVISION TO BE SENT  To South Africa.  London, November 7.���It is iioav virtually decided to send another division of  10,000 men to South Africa as speedily as  possible. For this purpose, a second and  third army corps Avill be mobilized. The  The second Avill consist of 40,000 men, of  -which 10,000 will go to Africa, the rest  being concentrated at Aldeishot in rejidi-  ness for emergencies. The third army  corps, a nominal affair, Avill number  25,000 men, and Avill be used for garrison  purposes at. home. Thus, the entire British army Avill virtually be mobilized,  Avhich Avill be an unprecedented occurrence.    Durham, Natal, November 5���Evening.���The Boei-s have invaded Ingwayu-  niji, Zululand, and looted ajul burned the  public buildings aud stores. The magistrate, police and other inhabitants fied  toward Eshowe.  BOERS MAKING NO ATTEMPT TO  Go South From Coienso.  London, November 8.���Tlie Daily Telegraph publishes the following from  Pietermaritzburg, dated Saturday evening: "Since the occupation of Coienso  the Boers lnwe attempted no advance  further south. Estcourt is now becoming a strong and growing camp. Major  Wolfe Murray is iu temporary command.  The enemy bombarded Coienso on Thursday until sunset at the extreme range of  his nine-centimetre Krupp guns Confirmation has been obtained of repoi'ts that  general Schalk has been commander of  Vryburg. A general Boer advnnce is not  thought probable. Means have bcesi  taken to protect Pietermaritzburg against  any attacks, and also to relieve Ladysmith before the enemy can come further,  Capetown, November 5���3:1.") a. m.���  Advices from tlie Orange river say it is  reported that the Boers have taken one  of the piers of Modder river bridge, and  thei-e are rumors emanating from Hope-  town that an attack Avill be made on the  Orange river camp.  Montreal Infested With Safe Blowers.  Montreal., November 7.���George Edwards, oue of the four safe blowers captured by the police here, Avas identified  today by means of a photograph as a  man wanted in Bristol, Maine. The Bristol authorities have been advised of his  arrest, but it will be a long time before  they Avill be able to lay hands on him, as  the police have a straight case against  Edwards and his pals, and the general  expectation is that they will get about  fourteen years. Montreal is infested by  a bad gang of safe crackers at present,  and an example Avill be made of the men  under arrest.  THE RESOIT OF THE EJECTIONS  Neav York, November 7.���Generally  speaking the election in New York state  is a Republican victory.

All of these are accessible, close to civilization, Avithin reach of  cubital, and there is room for many more  than can find place to drive a stsike in  the already crowded Cape Nome camp.  Hope to Capture Aguinaldo,  With forces aggregating more than  30,000 fighting men, generals Lawton,  McArthur and Whcaton are now closing  in on Aguinaldo's ai'jiiy. Gcucrid Otis  set November 5th Jind 0th jis the dates  for commencing the campaign "all along  the line," and the Avar department has  information that the program is  being carried out. General Otis' dispatches are optimistic in the highest degree, and the officials are predicting that  the rebellion will he crushed before the  end of the present mouth, and that important victories will be announced within a few days.    Nelson an Open Market.  P. Genelle ��fc Co. Jire moving their lumber yard from Nolson to Greenwood. The  market for lumber iu the Boundary is  much better than in Nelson, jmd in addition to this the Boundary market Avill be  controlled by the lumber trust which is  being engineered by T. Mayne Daly of  Rossland. The refusjil of the Nelson Siiav  As Planing Mills to go into the combine  has had the effect of making Nckon au  open market, and this, coupled with the  facilities for getting lumber into Nelson,  luis made the commodity cheaper in Nel-  .son than in any other point in Kootenay.  THE CLOSING OF A ROAD WORKS  An Injury to the City.  The effect of the dosing by the tram-  Avay company of the Avagon road to the  Nelson <fc Fort Sheppard depot  is being  keenly felt by the merchants of Nelson  already.    The  closing  of the  road  has  added to the cost of shipping goodsPoA'er  the  Nelson   <fc   Fort   Sheppard  raihvay  from Nolson, and lias caused unnecessary  inconvenience   in  tho receipt of  goods  consigned    to   Nelson    over   tho   road.  Turner, Beeton & Co.  yesterday had a  carload of Milwaukee beer at the depot  Avhich they desired to get to Nelson.    To  accomplish this thoy had to load the beer  upon   cars  and   return   it  to  Five-mile  point, and then  bring  it  to  Nelson  by  steamer.    Another caso  in   point  is  tho  Nelson SaAV and Planing Mills Company.  It has three  carloads  of   brick  for  the  Burns block, Avhich it AA'ill be impossible  to   get  to  their destination unless  the  brick are sent  back  to  Five-mile  point  and returned to Nelson by steamer. This  extra handling of goods, if permitted to  continue, must be borne by the business  men of Nelson,  Avho Avill probably disagree Avith mayor Neelands  iu   his  contention  that  the  keeping  open   of tho  road to the Nelson & Fort Sheppard depot is no concern of the city couucil.  A Promising Section of Country.  Daniel Whitley, avIio is known throughout Kootenay as "Red Paddy," has made  a great strike on the nortli foi-k of tho-  Kettle river, near Mouashee mountain.  He has several claims in this district  which is now receiving a great deal of  attention. One ledge which he is working  on appears to be 30 feet Avide. He has  sunk 15 feet in soft quartz and apparently has struck it A'ery rich, having  brought out about 50 pounds of samples,  which are too rich to require assaying,  the gold being A'isible in every piece.  There are several Nelson men interested  in the district, including W. F. Teetzel,  Robert Shiell, George Doyle and Fred  Williamson, and, Jiccording to Whitley's  opinion, some of them Avill strike it rich,,  as Arery large gold assays have been received from properties all around him.  Besents the Imputation.  Alderman Fletcher  resents  the  inference of   alderman  Hillyer  that  he  deserted him at Monday evening's meeting  of the city council and  shirked the vote  upon  the  music hall bylaAV.' Alderman  Fletcher's version of the matter  is  that  at the meeting of the public Avorks committee, Avhich aa'jis held on Monday Jifter-  noon, it Avas clearly understood, that the  music hall bylavv would not be rec m-  sidered, but that, in deference to public;  opinion, it should first be  submitted to  .the electors for  their approval or rejection.    This being so, he did not consider "  it necessary for him to attend the meeting of" the  council  in   the  evening;   although he did intend to be pi'esent, but'  neglected to do so.  A Promising Soldier.  The most prominent mime on the latest  list of casualties is thatfaf major Pitcairii  Campbell of the King's Royal Rifles, avIio  was wounded at Dundee and only reported last night. Major Campbell is re- -  garded as a soldier of marked capacity  and promise. He served through the  Egyptian Avar and the first Soudan campaigns, lie has been some years in South  Africa, first at CapetoAvn, and latterly in  Natal, and knows the ground thoroughly.  It avjis thought likely that he Avould  succeed colonel Greenwood, A.ho avjis  killed iu the first action at Gleneoe, but  majoi' Gore Browne was promoted, major  Campbell's knowledge of the country  being utilizedron the staff. "~~  After the Whole Hill.  *Mojne Lculcr.  It is reported on good authority that  J. C. Drewry and his syndicate have purchased a (SO per cent interest iu the St.  Eugene mine at Moyie. That is, the ssune  interest which the Cooderham-Blackstoek  syndicate purchased last spring from  Me-M's. Finch, Croiiin. Campbell, and  others. Mr, Drewry Avill return from  Toronto about the 10th, If the information recciA'ed is authentic, it mwiiis tluit  the Canadian Gold Fields syndicate control the thi'eo largest mines iu the Moyio  camp.    Nothin? Definite Known in Nelson.  Although nothing authentic luis, been  received in Nelson Avith respect to tho  building of the Nelson end of the Crow'a  Nest Pass as far as Balfoiu', it is generally understood tluit engineer Maclood,  who is now in charge of construction on '  the branch from Cranbrook to Kimberley,  a\ ill have charge of the Balfour extension  as well. The line is between 20 and 22  miles in length, and unless further changes  in the location are decided upon, it is in  such shape that tenders for its construction could be called for jit once.

The people of  Yale-Cariboo care little for the traditions  of party and less for the old-time political  hacks that held office under "Sjindy" Mac-,  lcenzie and ".Sir John." They want new  issues and neAV blood, and the people  usually.get what they want.  There' is trouble at the coal niines at  Lethbridge, Alberta, and tlie local agents  in Nelson will be unable to make de-  liveiies to fill orders.

Alderman Fletcher says Greenwood is to  luive ji music luill. We can imagine  froutier towns clamoring for such, but  not Nelson. Our city must Remain queen  of the Kooteniiys, and take up only with  what is consistent in our lives as true  citi/.eus. Alderman Fletcher Avill please  take another trip to Greenwood six  months hence and let us know if their  music hall continues to be pure. Instead  of any further agitation over the above  bylaw, it would be bettor for alderman  Hillyer to set about the removal of present existing nuisancjss which should not  luive been so long allowed to flourish on  our main business .streets. ltemove  everything which might cause our town  to be scoffed at by outsiders and their  press, and leave Nelson a (it and proper  place to live in. Mrs.. Dacky*.  . Nelson, November 7th.  The Revolt in the West.  Toronto Star.  Revolt and disorder,'.'wliich Mr. Sifton  has, in various way's, tried to stifle, iioav  rears its ugly head  in  the West against  the   administration   at   Ottawa.    So  at  least reads the Mail  and  Empire iu the  speech 'delivered by Mr. Joseph Martin in  Winnipeg.    No  such  slashing   criticism  was ever  administered to a government  from within its   own   party,  says   the  Mail.   Mr. Sifton, it appears,, has seized  control of a section of the press, with a  view  to  creating public  opinion of the  ''new Liberal" type; and hisemissaries.the  majority of whom jire. paid officials, luive  been turned;into the Liberal associations  to convert them into "Sifton machines'."  Meanwhile, Mi'. Martin has  appeared on  the scene, and confounded all  the machinations of' the  "Young Napoleon."    Mr.  Martin''triumphantly convicts the government of going back on all its pledges.    It  has thrown overboard its free,trade principles, and litis broken its promises to reduce railway rates.    For all this slashing  arraignment the Mail encouragingly pjits  the rebellious Martin on the back.  ���rn^m^&m  mm  m  mmt  w  id  x&  m  w  ���^  BARGAINS IN  CHILDREN'S  GUM BOOTS  c  LOSING OUT  BARGAINS IN  MEN'S  GUM BOOTS  SALE OF  Boots and Shoes  Rubbers and Overshoes  B  ��  &  ito  75 pairs of Men's Shoes, worth $4,  $5, and $6, sale price, $3  15 pairs of Women's Shoes, worth  $g.50 and $3, sale pricey, $1.25  40 pair Misses'Shoes, worth $1.50,  $1.75, and $2, sale price, $1  W      37 pair  Women's.

It was  in sheets of ��$i00* of 20 notes each, and I  prevailed upon him to lot me have one  -just as it was.

"And shall wc be behind  When the banner's in the wind,  And the old game is playing once again ?  We're for the Hag,  ��� The red cross flag.  We're for the flag that is our own.  Do you ask a heart to care for it,  A hand lo do and claro for it?  God save the red cross flag!"  Who's that calling?  The old sea-mother cills,  (n her pride at the children Dial she bore.

They died in day*1' gme by for it,  Aim wc will gladly die for it,  God save the red cross Hag!"  Japan Eager to. Block Russia.  ' , Judging from tlie  tone of the native  press iu commenting upon the Masampho  aiTjiii*, it would not be at all difficult just  now to*ai'Ouse against Russia the latent  war spirit which has beeu gathering force  and depth' every since the retrocession of  the Liao Tung peninsula.  At every stage  of tlie rapid progress of her naval armament program, the consciousness of her  growth iu strength is affecting the nation,  while Jit the same time  the conviction  that with the completion of the Siberian  railway the hour for successful revenge  will luive passed, m:ikes Japan morbidly  sensitive at the news  of any fresh  en:  croaehments  of tlie  Russian   in  north-  casterii  Asia   and especifilly   in Korea.  Just at the  present juncture  the belief  that Russia will surely take Jidvantage of  England's absorption in  the Transvaal  struggle to carry things  iu  these  parts  with a  high  hand  puts  theiiatiou  on  the    qui    vive   of    apprehension.      On  the other  hand, there  are ,f>igns  of   a  growing   coulideuce    in   her   power   to  checkmate   Muscovite  ambitions.   Very  little doubt-now exists that some sort of  jm understanding has heen  arrived  at  between Japan, China and Korea.    The  extraordinarily���curt-reply ofthe -hitter  government to  the Russian demand for  the Masampho site, demands which were  nlinost an   ultimatum, simply   referred  , the   applicant,  to   the    Japanese    for  whatever   - arrangements      were      desired.     In   ��� addition     tp    tliis    comes  the report that Yaquino, the late Japanese minister at Pck'm, resigned because of  having been appointed  the Japanese advisor of the Tsung Li Yamen, and the inception of a triple Jillisince which may  hereafter become a factor to be reckoned  witli in far eastern matters, clearly is indicated.

Supporters of sir Wilfrid Laurier never  tire of telling how he iniide Canada a lia-  tion.    If that be true the Dominion lmi'st  luive  changed its  status  in the empire  from that of a dependency to a partner  in tlie grert federation  of British states  With the change has come added responsibilities,  which the   people of Canada  have been much quicker to recognize and  'acknowledge than their government. Owing to the fact that only the French-  Canadian    members     of     the    cabinet  and   of   parliament     Avere   opposed   to  Canada fulfilling those obligtitious in a  generous   spirit,    the    English-speaking  people of the Dominion  concluded  that  behind  their'weak attempt   to   find  a  prohibition  in   the  constitution  of  the  MilitiJi Act tliere Avas a traditional dislike  of   the   British.     The   conviction was  strengthened by the foot that the French  press of Quebec Avere perfectly harmonious on the subject.  Journals which have  cursed oue auother on  every other conceivable   topic   Avere    agreed   in   their  opposition    to    Caiuida     taking      part  in    tlie   South   African   struggle.     Additional    evidence     to     support    this  vieAv aviis supplied by the forced abandonment of the attempt to -form a Freucli-  Canadian unit ,at  Quebec, because* only  eleven volunteers were forthcoming. And  A SNAP IN  "'T  MINING SHARES  further proof is found in the fact that  the Montreal unit were alloAved to leave  that city as if they had been strangers.  Thus while Canada���like New Zealand  and Australia���has attained the dignity  of partners in the empire, one important  section of our population declines to al-  Ioav us to bejir the burden that such advancement in the political scale imposes.  That Mule Stampede.  ��� The London Times finds it difficult to  believe in the story of the mule stampede. It declares tluit 'trained battery  -mules Avere never known to stampede.  They have repeatedly made night  marches in India without mishap. It assumes that colonel Carleton's mules were,  under native care. It recjills the recently-'  reported .mutiny of native muleteers,  and suggests that the Boers, or their  sympathizers, tampered with tlie-drivers,,  and that the rolling of the boulders wjis  the signal for them to desert.

The work done upon the property consists, of a main tunnel, which  has, been run in on the vein for 225  feet, and the vein where cross-cut  shows an average width of from-8 to 10  feet. 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, ail but three  of whom are employed on development.  The company has another three cars of  clean ore ready for shipment.

Compliant lias been made at tlie city  hall with respect to the grade of the  tramway company's line on Kootenay  .street. Although the matter has not yet  been looked into, it is said that the track  i.s fully eighteen inches above the grade  furnished by tlie city engineer, ami the  result is that at the intersection of Robson street the track is so high that vehicles ciinnot cross it.  o .Superintendent Marpole and chief engineer Ctunbie of the Canadian Pjxeific  are expected to arrive in Nelson during  the latter pai't of the -week, when the  company's proposal to the city council  with respect to the establishment of  divisional facilities tit Nelson will be submitted.  Passengers over the Crow's Nest line  beat the Canadian Pacific Telegraph  Company out in the transmission of news  from Calgary. They bring news of the  shooting iu Calgary on Saturday evening  of George Gouin by a, man named Harris.  Gouin is said to have been mortally  wounded. Harris suspected Gouin of undue intimacy with his wife. Harris made  good his escaiJe.  Mrs. Siuchtir, whose husband is serving  time for being concerned in the embezzlement of funds from the Canadian Pacilic  railway at Trail, is circulating tv petition  .praying that the minister of justice oi'der his release. The petition is being  numerously signed.  Good progress, is being made on the  several brick blocks in Nelson now under-  construction. They will all be occupied  by January 1st, 1900.  The new barge which the Canadian  Pacific is building in the Nelson shipyard  will be launched Jibout the eiid of the  week. It will have a capacity of fifteen  cars, and will be used in the transfer  service from Kootenay Landing to .Nelson.  W. P. Brougham has .sold his residence  on Stanley street to engineer Woakes of  the Duncan syndicate.  P. J. Butler will take charge of the  C. P. It. shipyard during the absence in  Spokane of J. M. Bulger.  Word comes from Victoria that Hon."  J. Fred Hume is to arrive in Nelson in a  day or two. The object of his visit is to  inquire into the popularity of some of  his recent appointments in this district.  The-telephone service in Nelson, of late,  is very bad.    Too many cheap operators.  C. P. Efcter qlaims that he - spent" considerable, time and money last summer in  building a road from Giyeout creek to the  city;* that had he not built the roofd, - the  city or the contractors would have been  put to the expense of .building one oyer  wliich to haul the  jnnes' foi" the  water  WE ARE SCORING  ANOTHER GREAT SUCCESS  in the sale of the stock of goods  ���    ;which    we' purchased   from   the  * stores of Messrs. Foley Brothers  & Larsen at- their construction  camp at Creston. -The reductions  which we advertise are genuine.  We can afford to make them be-  -- cause we purchased the greater  part of the-stock at  TWENTY-FIVE CENTS  ON THE DOLLAR  The same is true in a measure  with the bankrupt stock* of Crawford & McMillan, which we have  been v/orking off for some time,  week  works. Now that it has served the purpose of the city or the contractors, they  have used it for_Jong distances as the  easiest place in Tvhich to lay the pipe.  Mr. Etter built the road in order to be  able to haul wood to the city; now he  will be compelled to wait until snowfalls.  The city or the contractors-should repair  the road, in all I'uirness.  The electric light service is slowly, but  perceptibly, improving. The two large  direct current machines aie yet carrying  too heavy a load, and in order to make  the service bettei-, the loads on these machines must be reduced.

She was down for three songs,  but the audience insisted each time upon  an encore. Her first song was spoilt by  the accompanist, who seemed to have  lost his place.
