 The Boers Fooled by a Night Attack.  Cape Town, November 15.���Advices received from Mafeking, via Magalaye, state  THE MEN DEFENDING MAFEKING  Are Real British Soldiers.  London, November 10.���A dispatch to  the Daily Mail  from  Mafeking, sent by  way of Magalapye  because  the  runners  sent southward were unable to traverse  the Boer lines, gives  an  interesting account of the  fighting  during   the  last  week  in   October.      The   correspondent  says:     General Cronge had  recourse to  making an  advance to  the  town by a  succession of trenches in echelon.    Such  a move had been  anticipated  by us for  sonic time, and foi- that reason there has  been sent out parties to worry tlio Boers  incessantly by night attacks.    These tactics the enemy disliked, but he contented  himself with a daily shelling  fire, which  exposed him to little personal risk.  Then  colonel Baden-Powell played  the  trump  card by sending outFitz-Clarence's party  to worry the occupants of the trenches.  The little force stole out silently  in the  darkness.    Not a shot was fired ; and the  men fixed bayonets, creeping rather than  walking along  the  veldt, gradually  approached  the  chief  Boer  position, near  the race course.    Then as they closed in,  there was a * shrill  screech, it was  Fibz-  Clarcnce's signal  for  the  onslaught.    A  ringing British cheer, wliich the listeners  back in the  camp  caught up, when  the  daring party dashed  into the  trenches,  M       There was a fearful struggle, the attacking    force    catching    and    bayoneting  the     Boers     under      the     tarpaulins,  where they crouched, crying for  mercy.  At  least  fifty  bayonets  got to  work  and the havoc they wrought was terrible.  For just a moment there was no  systematic return fire: but then a perfect storm  of bullets poured in from the trenches to  the rear.     Again  Fibz-Clareuce's whistle  sounded.    It was " Cease fire, and scatter  forward."    The  British  forces scattered  silently, crossing back under the  furious  fire  in  the  darkness  to   the  appointed  rendezvous, where the roll was called.  Colonel   Baden-Powell  met   and  congratulated captain Fit/.-Clarence and his  , men  on  tlieir splendid work, saying  it  was a heavy price to pay,  but  that  the  Boers  had  to  be  stopped  making  rifle  trenches within the range of  the  town.  The members of the party are  now the  envy and pride  of  the  garrison.     Even  the  Boer commander,  Botha,  expressed  admiration of the attack, and added that  he would take  Mafeking ere long, for  he  meant   to do   one  thing   or  the  other.  Sunday passed  quietly, the volunteer  baud playing in the women's laager.    All  Sunday night the Boers  poured a rifle  fire into the town.   "It was set going after  dinner.on Sunday evening, when colonel  ^ Baden-Powell hoisted a red lamp on the  conning tower,  which was  the signal of  captain Pita-Clarence's night attack. The  ruse answered  spendidly.    The moment  tlie light appeared the Boers opened fire,  and tlieir fusiiade lasted the whole night  through.   There' has   been a tremendous  waste of ammunition.    Indeed it is estimated that  30,000  rounds  of ball cartridges were wasted on the occasion of the  night attack on the Boer trenches.  Double rations have been served out to  the men, who are under shelter, so as to  be ou the safe side if the Boers should  sweep the town by a long-range rifie fire.  The garrison is hanging on finely. Colonel  Baden-Powell has, the fullest confidence  in everybody, and especially in the matter of implicit obedience to the order to  hold the fire until the Boers get to close  range.  The shelling continued all Sunday at  intervals. About four o'clock in the  afternoon, general Cronjo sent in a flag  of truces giving "Mafeking a~last-chance  to surrender at the eleventh homv While  the flag was receiving attention, the  heavy bombardment continued.  The dispatch "then describes greneral  Crouje's great attack of Monday, the details of which have already been cabled  from colonel Baden-Powell's official dispatches. "The end came," says the correspondent, "after five hours' fighting,  The enemy retired, being heavily beaten  for all time, so far as Mafeking is concerned.. It was the hottest day of the  seige; the Boers evidensly recognizing  that the way into Mafeking, if any*, was  by a kopje, which was gallantly defended  by colonel Walford's men. The garrison  is jubilant, while the Boers have beeu  hurled back in disorder to their laager,  and will have to content themselves with  a loug range bombardment unless they  are stibngly reinforced. The enemy lost  heavily.- ^  Five'hours after the fighting line had  been rolled back, two wagons went slowly aloeg,*their position, picking up the  dead aud"wounded. The kopje resembled a shambles after the fight. All the  men were killed by bullets or shells. The  lookout .toAver was shot to pieces, while  eveu the saddles of horses were fearfully  battered. The whole place was simply  smashed up by the concentrated lire of  seven guns and a thousand rifles. The  Boers at first held on their advance  pluckily, but they could not live when  they came to a short range, the men being shot down at 300 yards. The enemy  is expected to withdraw early in order to  Pretoria. There is still no news from the  south. As I send this message off, (500  Boers liave gone south with wagons and  have commenced shelling.  THURSDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER .16,  1899.  PUBLISHED AT NELSON. BRITISH COLUMBIA.  DAILY (BY MAIL) $5 A YEAR; WEEKLY. $2.  that only 55 men of D squadron were engaged in the night attack on the Boers,  though they were assisted by the flanking fire of the guns of the Cape police.  The Boers made a desperate attempt to  drive back the British, and their entrenchments opened a terrific fire in every direction, the flash of rifles lighting up the  entire position. A hail of bullets rattled  on the roofs of the houses. Upon completing the circuit of the Boer front and  the line of trenches, tiie British withdrew  in independent lines of retreat, covered  by the flank tire from the Cape police.  The Boers continued to fire volleys at intervals during the night. The Boer loss  is estimated at one hundred killed and  wounded. The Boer commander informed  au officer in charge of a flag of truce that  he estimated the attacking squadron at  1000, and he added he was not aware that  the British forces .at Mafeking was so  large. The Boers were observed from  Mafeking burying the  dead all day long.  Another Report.  Cape Town, November 15.���An undated dispatch from Mafeking, received  by a runner via Magalnpye, Wednesday,  November 8th, says: "Today all quiet.  Have been bombarded pretty heavily all  week. Friday night captain Fit/.Clarence  and lieutenant Swinburn, with D squadron Protectorate regiment, made a magnificent bayonet charge upon the Boer  entrenchments, driving them from their  positions and bayoneting a number. . The  Boers lost heavily. The charge was  most gallant and determined. The  party could not hold the trenches and  lost six men killed, two prisoners and  nine wounded iu their retirement. AVe  expect a general attack tomorrow. The  bombardment has been most ineffectual.  Every one remains under shell-proof  cover. So far, shells have only wounded  one man. The enemy are using one 94-  pounder howitzer and six other guns,  from 7 to 1--pounders. The town is most  cheerful and determined to resist attack  to the utmost.  NEWS FROM THE NORTH COUNTRY  THE LATEST FBOM SOUTH AFRICA  Destruction,   Disaster, Death.  Victoria, November 15.--The steamer  Danube of this city, which arrived from  the nortli today, brought news that the  town of Port Essington narrowly escaped  destractiou on Friday last. Fire broke  out iu the laundry next to tlie Port Es~  siugtou hotel, and the hotel and two  stores and a number of cabins and shacks  were destroyed, with all their contents.  The loss will amount to between $60,000  and $70,000. The cannery of Robert  Cunningham, a warehouse*-and the-wharf  were the only structures that escaped.  The Danube had a number of Dawson  passengers, including J. S. Cape, the representative of English capitalists who are  largely interested in many of the northern gold fields; T. Price, who brought out  $11,000 in gold, and It. Jackson, who had  $C000.  According to news from Dawson, reports of good pay have reached there from  Indian river.  The Skagway Daily   Alaskan  tells a  thrilling story of starvation aud death in  the wilds of northern Alaska.   The victims were M. C.���Daly of-Bostonandtwo-  Frenchmen,    whose   names    could   not  be   learned.      Tlie   story   was   brought  to    Skagway      by     William    Lawlor,  an   old-time   Arizona   miner.     Late  in  the fall of 1808 it appears   Lawler, together with the men  mentioned and a  fif^h named J. Smithson,  started out to  prospect on the headwaters of the  Mosquito   river.      About    Christmas    they  went across the range and began to stake  ground on  Bonanza   river.    A blizzard  came on and  Daly and  the  Frenchmen  became  separated   from  the  other  two  men and  wandered away without provisions   and   with   scant   clothing   and  blankets and a single tent.   After the  storm   Lawler   and   Smithson   followed  their footsteps through the snow.    They  found messages written  on trees telling  the sad story of privation  and suffering.  After a time  the little  searching  party  came upon the  camp of  their  comrades.  Death   had   '.been    there   before them.  On   the   ground, rolled in his blankets,  his form wasted to a mere  skeleton, was  the corpse of one of the Frenchmen.    On  a camp stove was a kettle  containing a  frozen mass that told its own  story.    It  was   filled  with  the  rawhide thongs of  snowshoes, which the starving men had  attempted   to   boil   for food.      A short  distance from the  tent, close  beside the  trail, was found the body of  the  other  Frenchman.       The      wolverines       had  stripped       every     particle      of     flesh  from the   bones.    A little   further   on  Daly's      body      was       found      in      a  similar condition.     Buckled  around  the  hollow ribs, in mockery   at   its  supreme  helplessness in   that   solitude   of death,  was a buckskin belt containing $1000 in  gold dust.      The   bodies  Were buried as  best th ey could  be,   and   a   well-known  prospector took charge of the gold dust  and other effects to send them, if he can,  to the relatives of the deceased.  London,   November   16,   5   a.m.���The  most interesting, and   in fact the only,  news of  the  war  now comes from  the  western frontier.      The  accounts of colonel Baden-Powell's brilliant  exploits at  Mafeking forming quite  lively  and  encouraging    reading.      Trench    work    is  quite novel  in-Boer   tactics,  and  some  curiosity is evinced as to who may be  directing and astowhatisstill to be shown.  Nevertheless, at both Mafeking and Kimberley, conditions seem favorable.    So far  as NataMs concerned, the Britisher must  possess his soul  in  patience and trust to  general Buller.   Belated dispatches from  Ladysmith, dated November 7th, tell of a  languid bombardment and a native rumor  that the  Basutos   are  on  the warpath,  which is  supposed,  according to the cor-  repondent, to have  had the effect of inducing some of the Orange Free State  troops to abandon the siege aud to return  to their own territory, and also to be accountable for the slackness of the attempts  on the Ladysmith defences.   Another dis-  pa'tch says it is  reported that in the attack on  Free State troops at Dewdorp,  the Boers had 300 iu killed and wounded.  If the reports ihat the Free State burghers are tired of the  affair and are going  home should prove true,  the fact would  be most important, as their retirement  would probably compel general Joubert  to withdraw  northward.   The Boers entrenched so closely to Ladysmith is held  in some quarters to indicate that they are  running short of ammunition for their  guns.    All general Buller's arrangements  for the advance  from  Durban  it is rumored are practically completed, and reports say it may be expected in a few  days.  The war office received several dispatches relating to military details, but  it is not likely that they will be published. Tne whereabouts of geueral Buller is not publicly known, but* he is believed to be up country somewhere. Colonel Plummer, it is thought, has abandoned the attempt to relieve Mafeking.  The admiralty' has engaged the fast-  steamers Gaul, Norman, Donneeastle, and  Avondale Castle to embark the greater  part of the fifth division of 10,000 troops  at Southampton for the'Gape.  London, November 10.���A dispatch to  the Daily Mail, dated Kimberley, Friday,  November 10th, by way of Cape Town,  Sunday, November 12th, reports an exchange of artillery lire with the Boers  that morning. No damage was done to  the town. Subsequently au armored  train went toward Dronfield, where it  was fired upon.by the Boers, after which  it returned to Kimberley in safety.  London, November 15.���The troopship  Harw arden Castle, with the second  battalion of the  Royal  Irish Fusileers, has  arrived at Durban, bringing the number of  reinforcements that have landed there up  to 5227.    Five of the troopships are now  enroute from Capetown to Durban.    The  total reinforcements that have arrived in  South Africa since Friday are 19,000 men  (chiefly infantry), nearly   13,000   horses  and- mules,  three  batteries  of field artillery,   and   a   number  of quick-firing  Maxim guns.    The fact that the  Britannic has proceeded  for  East London   is  taken to mean that general Buller is satisfied that the troops which have already  landed, [or "are on  the way  to  Durban,  will  be sufficient to carry out  his  plans  for the relief of Ladysmith.  ���   Cape Town, November    16.���General  Methuu of the first division, accompanied by his staff, went north this evening  by train.  London, November 16.���The Times  publishes the following despatch from  Buluwayo, dated Thursday the 9th:  " The Boers attacked the Bechuna chief  Khama at Selika Kop,con our side of Crocodile river .yesterday, and were repulsed.  Khama is confident and is working heartily with us. He is supported by 100 men  from here. Chief Lichwe, who was at  first loyal, is thought to be wavering."  London, November 15.���The losses suffered by general White's forces have  only helped to swell the continuous procession of regular, volunteer and ex-army  officers who have importuned the war  office to' send them out. Such enthusiasm, however, does not seem to have  spread to Ireland, for it is said that the  families of some of the soldiers of the  Irish regiments recently engaged have  refused them permission to return to  their homes. - Such bitterness seems almost incredible, but it is vouched for by  a'n ftishiiigh sheriff.    *  ceived dispatches from both points regarding the progress of the war in South  Africa, the wreck of the United States  cruiser Charleston, and other important  events. This intelligence was published  in the Trans-Atlantic Times, printed on  board ship. The paper was selling at a  dollar a copy, the proceeds being devoted  to the seaman's fund. The passengers also availed themselves ofthe opportunity  to send '- wireless greetings" to friends in  England; oue actually arranging for a  party in town on his arrival in Loudon.  Six of signor Marconi's assistants have  gone to the Cape, at the request of the  government, witli sets of instruments.  He says that he has sent no plant either  direct or indirectly to the Transvaal.  PROCEEDINGS  COMMENCED TO  Drive Chinese From the Coal Mines.  Victoria, November 15.��� [Special  to The Tribune.]���Proceedings having important bearing upon the em��  ployment of Chinese and Japanese in the  coal mines of this province were opened  at Nanaimo today, being arbitration on  the special rule promulgated by the provincial government after anti-Chinese  legislation had been declared invalid by  the privy council. This rule would ex-  elude all persons not competent to read  and understand  the mining regulations  printed in the English language. The  Union and Wellington colliery companies  demanded an arbitration, as provided for  by the act, as to the fairness of the new  rule, and the arbitrators areT. T. Wynne  and W. J. McAllen, with F. W. McCready  as umpire. Attorney-general Henderson  appeared today for the minister of mines  and lawyers Cassidy and Davey for the  objecting collieries. The question of the  competence of the Chinese and Japanese  already employed at Union and Wellington having been raised also, it was decided that both matters should be dealt  with together. At Cassidy's request the  arbitrators decided that the official stenographer in attendance should take a full  report of all the"proceedings, though the  attorney-general objected to this vast  undertaking. The arbitrators decided to  sit only at Nanaimo and Wellington, refusing request to hold sessions at Comox,  though coupled with the promise that  the Dunsmuirs would transport all the  parties concerned free of charge. They  promised, however, to view the Union  mines if thought necessary. Having arranged preliminaries the arbitrators adjourned until tomorrow, when the taking  of evidence will commence.  Predicts an Increase in War Eagle Dividends,  Toronto, November 15.���George Good-  erham, interviewed by the Toronto  World regarding the War Eagle mine at  Rossland, says that at the rate of the  output of the first two weeks of  November the net profits will be about  $56,000 a month, or double the amount  required to pay the monthly dividends.  He further states that with the new  machinery that is going in, the present  output ea*n be largely increased. The  750-foot level has some of the finest ore  yet encountered. He added that this  would mean an increase in the dividends  in the near future.  THE BICCEST SILVER-LEAD MINES  in British Columbia Consolidated.  Toronto, November 15.���[Special to  The Tribune.]���For some days past there  have been persistent rumors regarding  the consolidation of the Lake Shore group  of mines at Moyie, in East Kootenay,  British Columbia, owned by the Canadian  Goldfields Syndicate, Limited, and the  Moyie and Queen of the Hills claims,  which adjoin tlie Lake Shore group, a  controlling .interest of which J. C.  Drewry recently purchased. The deal  was actually consummated today, and is  one of the largest mi_ning_deals_e_ver made  in Canada, The consolidation actually  embraces the famous St. Eugene group at  Moyie, as well as the properties above referred to. ,  The Consolidated company will thus  own nine full claims and five large fractions. The deal was arranged by George  Gooderham, T. G. Blackstock, J. C. Drewry  and James Cronin, and the agreements  were signed this afternoon, Mr. Gooderham has purchased over a million shares  of the stock of the Canadian Goldfields  Syndicate, Limited, and is now the largest individual shareholder in that company. Tlie new company will be  known as the St. Eugene Consolidated,  and will be capitalized at $3,500,000,  in $1 shares, 300,000 shares to remain in  the treasury. Mr. Gooderham will be  president of the new company, and the  personnel of the board of directors while  not yet definitely arranged will include  the following gentlemen: T. G. Black-  stock, George Sumner, K. P. Heaton, J. C.  Drewry, John A. Pinch of Spokane, and  James Cronin of Moyie.  The properties are all silver-lead, and  the Lake Shore and St. Eugene mine's are  well-known shippers. Together they will  make the biggest silver-lead mining company in British Columbia.  Given a Practical Test.  Southampton, November 15.���The  American line steamer St. Paul, captain  Jamieson, from New York,November 8th,  passed Hurst Castle at 5:15 p.m. today.  Signor Marconi, who was a passenger cai  the St. Paul, telegraphed from her when  forty-five miles outside The Needles to  land to say that all was well and that it  was expected that the steamer would  arrive at seven o'clock. .Signor Marconi,  from a wire attached to the main mast,  established communication with wireless  installations at Lumbay and Pool, and re-  Want   the  Naturalization   Law  Amended.  Grand Forks. November  15.--During  his visit here today a memorial was  presented to Hon. J. Fred Hume, minister of  mines,  on  behalf of a number of alien  miners who wish to become British  subjects.   They request that the provincial  legislature at its next session amend the  law governing the admission of foreigners to citizenship. It was pointed out that  the statute as a present enacted required  all applicants to make their  declarations  before the county court judge.     ft  was  alleged that the transfer of the allegiance  of thousands of aliens,  including  hundreds   of   Americans, would   be accomplished   more   expeditiously   and  on   a  more extensive scale if authority to take  affidavits was conferred on justices of the  peace   or   mining  recorders.     Scores of  prospective citizens, it  was  represented,  spent most of-their time in the hills, and  through ignorance of the precise date of  the visit of the county court judge, were  unable to come to town to fulfil  the  requirements.    Hon. Mr. Hume replied that  the matter was wholly within the jurisdiction of the Dominion government, and  it would afford  him  great   pleasure  to  make   representations    to   Hon.   David  Mills, minister of justice at Ottawa, with  a view to having the law amended in the  sense desired by the petitioners.  LOUIS BLUE OF ROSSLAND GIVES  Facts Begarding the Lumber Combine.  The big lumber combine which is to  control the milling interests of Kooteuay  and the Boundary country has just been  iacorpv;ated.with a capital'of $500,000.  It will include eight mills, having a daily  capacity of over 500,000' feet, and the  timber reserves behind it are estimated  at 500,000,000 feet. Louis Blue, P. Gen-  elle, James Poupore and A. Fisher are the  backers of the new corporation, which  will be* known as the Yale-Columbia  Lumber Company, Limited. The head  offices will be at Greenwood.  "There will be no raise in the price  of lumber," said Mr. Blue in discussing  the situation with a Rossland Record reporter. "The consolidation is chiefly to  perfect our facilities for supplying tlie  public aud also to secure economy in  management. With the mills operated  separately it is often a difficult matter to  maintain supplies. With the combination, each mill will be in a position to  help any ol the others in a pinch and the  result will be great ad van cagesali around."  The mills include P. Genelle k Co.'s at  Nakusp, capacity 150,000 feet every 24  hours, Genelle <fc Co.'s plant at liobson,  capacity 150,000 feet, my plant here with  a capacity of 70,000 feet, and my plant at  Ymir of 35,000 feet. They will also include the four mills owned by my.self and  A. Fisher in the Boundary. Tlieir location and capacity is: Phoenix 30,000 feet,  Kholt 50,000 foot, Ilock Creek -10,000 feet,  and Long Lake 30,000 feet. In addition  to these the company Will erect four  mills over the Boundary at points not  yet settled.  "Our reserves are located all over the [  Arrow lakes and through the Boundary  district. We have timber lands under  Dominion and provincial grant.**-, as well  as by virtue of lease from claim owners  and the railway companies. I .should  say that .the amount of timber now  .standing on our territory is- close, to half  a billion feet. It was at first proposed to  liave the head offices in Rossland, but as  so many small mills will be located  around Greenwood, that place was chosen  instead. The officer.**, of the company  have not yet been chosen and 1 cannot,  say who tliey will be. Tlie whole of our  capital stock, amounting to $500,000,  will be held by P. Genelle, J. Poupore.  J. Genelle, A. Fisher, and myself. None  will be offered to the public."  Hardware Men in Convention.  Pittsm/rg, November 15.���Three bundled delegates, representing 250 companies with a capital of $175,000,000, are attending the fifth annual convention of  the National Hardware Association, which  opened at the Monongahela house in this  city today. The feature of the first session was the introduction of the fraternal delegates from the National Hardware Associations of Great Britain and  Canada.  THE RAIL-WAV PEOgLE HATE TO  Part With the Becreation Grounds.  The members of thecity council had a  conference at the Hotel Phair yesterday  afternoon with the officials of the Canadian Pacific Railway Company, when  the concessions to be made by the city to  the railway company, in return for establishing a division point at Nelson,  were discussed. The meeting was of a  private nature, but sufficient has leaked  out to give the people of the city a very  fair idea of what the railway company  will ask.  The railway company was represented  by George McL. Brown, executive agent,  superintendent Marpole, and  H. E. Beasley, division superintendent.    Their proposition followed along  with   that  outlined by president  Shaughnessy, save in  the case of the recreation grounds.     The  railway officials want to hold the recreation  grounds  and   play   the  divisional  shops and  offices against them.     They  asked that the company's shops and other  improvements be exempted  from municipal  taxation  for such  period  as  was  limited by statute,  the  inference being  that the exemption would be for a period  of ten years.    They also asked  that  the  blind   ends of Vernon,  Baker,  Victoria  and Slocan streets to  the west of Railway  street  be  condemned   and   turned  over  to the company.     From  the conversation upon this point, it was inferred  that the company did not intend to close  Baker street at the intersection of  Railway street, but to grade the street from  this point and use it as the  approach  to  the new depot aud freight shed.  The deal with respect to the recreation  ground wastheonly unpalatable portion of  the company's programme to the members  of the city council.     The company's suggestion was that instead of taking a deed  to the present recreation grounds that a  five years' lease of the grounds should be  taken, in return for which  the  company  should give the city an absolute  deed to  forty acres of land to be selected from the  land of the company  adjoining  addition  A.    Iu support of this the  railway  officials urged, that in any event there would  be a string tied tp the deed of the present  recreation   grounds.      Whatever understanding there might have been  with respect to this land they said it was understood all the time that the land was to be  used for recreation purposes and if a deed  were given for the land  it  would  be  so  specified.    The railway company in short  would not convey the land io the city so  that the corporation could speculate with  it.    In reply to a question as to the probable extent   of   the division  shops  at  Nelson,the railway oflicials stated that in  the natural order of things Nelson would  be a larger division point than Kamloops.  The company had established  a division  point at GrahbrooJk "aridthe other  point *  to  the west  of Nelson   would  be somewhere iii ihe Boundary district, so  that  when the company's system in the south-*  ern portion of the district is connected up  Nelson would be a very important center.  As to  the amount of money which the  company would spend in erecting division  facilities at Nelson, the raihvay men stated that at present it  could only  be conjectured.    The company intended, in the  first  place   to  flume  Cottonwood  creek  from  where it crossed   the yard to  the  lake and it would aIso,have  to raise the  level of the yard.   As to tlie cost of the  buildings which the  company  proposed  to  put  uj),  the   details   had   not    been    "*  settled, but a start  would  be  made immediately  upon   the acceptance by   the  city  of the railway company's proposals.  A meeting of the  city council will  be  held thiVmorning "when the railway com~ ���  panj-b   proposals   will be   submitted in  writing.  Working Forty Men.  T. G.

With the War Eagle mine at Rossland  increasing its output, Avhich will increase  the size or the frequency of its dividends,  and the Payne mine at Sandon standing  idle, its owners hunting for lawyers to  attack the validity of the law under  which the War Eagle is being so successfully worked, is an object lesson well  .worth the consideration of thinking people.

The proposition  Sole agents I is that the recreation ground be leased  to the city for five or six years and a  deed be given for thirty or forty acres of  wild land   that is now valueless.     The  recreation ground is not an attractive spot  at pi'esent, and is likely to i emain as it is if  the city council accepts a five years' lease  of the ground, for no council"with sense  would  spend   a  dollar to improve-the  ground under such conditions.   A forty-  acre  tract   in   an   out-of-the-way place  would be valueless, for there is no laud  near Nelson tliat could be made suitable  for recreation purposes Avithout the expenditure of a large sum of money.   The  company can Avell afford to Vive up to its  agreement in this  matter, because, Avhen  made, the land in question was of little  value.   The people were led to believe that if  the city Avould clobe the streets on the flat  and exempt the company's improvements  from taxation for a term of years, Nelson  would be made a division point with all  that the term implies. Had this proposition Ijcen made, it Avould have been accepted. But in making it, the raihvay  officials have coupled it AA'ith one that is  not liked by half a dozen people in the  town.

The facts in connection Avilh the deportation of the-Hamilton Avorkman, Duncan  Robertson, from the United State's, as related in the Herald yesterday, make it  plain that the United States alien labor  Iiiav is in active operation against Canadians. In this case it would be idle for sir  Wilfrid Laurier's Washington friend;-, to  throw the blame upon the over-zeal of  Bouncer DeBarry. The real bouncing act  was not done by DeBarry.  Mr. Robertson had succeeded in evading DeBarry at Buffalo, had gone ou to  the town ill Massachusetts whither he  was bound, and had started to w-o-i-fc tor  the firm which had engaged him. Tlie  firm received a notification that if it retained him in its service it Avould be liable  to tiie penalty for violation of the alien  labor law. And Robertson was dismissed.  Who notified that firm. DeBarry  would have no right to do so. Massachusetts is not within his jurisdiction.  There- is little doubt the notification  came direct from Washington, the  authorities there having been informed  of the facts by DeBarry.

District.  friends have made to him thatthe United  States alien labor laAA' Avould not be enforced against Canadians if the Canadian  alien   labor   law   AA'ere   suspended,   the  United .States alien  labor laAV is still in  active operation against Canadians, that  not only have DeBarry and the other inspectors received no instructions to relax  the United States laAV against Canadians,  but the Washington   authorities   have  never had  any intention of relaxing the  enforcement of the law in any particular.  a    We fear  that sir    Wilfrid  has  been  made the victim of a buuco game on the  part of his  Washington   friends.    This  might easily be forgiven him as evidence  of his open  and  generous   nature���too  honorable in himself to suspect dishonorable dealing in others.    But the unpleasant and  irritating feature of the  Avhole  business is that tliere is too much reason  to believe that sir Wilfrid AA'as a Avilling  victim    of  the   bunco    game���that   he  neither  expected that the  Washington  people Avould carry out tlieir pledge nor  cared Avhether they did or not, but seized  npon their pledge and paraded it as good;  excuse for  the su.spension of the Dominion alien contract labor kv\v.  Canadian workmen are as rigorously  excluded from tJie United States as ever  they were. In the meantime United  States Avorkmen are being, imported into  Canada uuder contract every day���cheap  foreign workmen brought here to displace Canadian labor. Canadian miners  by the hundreds are being driven out of  employment in British Columbia by the  cheap labor imported under contract to  displace them. .'  The situation is intolerable. It Avould  have been less intolerable if no Dominion  alien labor law had been passed. But to  pa.ss it, aud then to suspend it, before it  Avas ever put into force, on the false plea  that the United States alien labor law  had been suspended as against Canadians,  is little short of an insult to Canadian  wage-earners.  The Laurier government had better  look to it. A continuation of its present  shortsighted and -unpatriotic policy may  result iu disaster. Let the United-States  alien labor Uvw be enforced as rigidly as  the Washington authorities may see fit;  that is their business. But let*there be  reciprocity iu this matter ' let the Drimin-  alien labor laAV be also put in force; that  is the business of the Dominion government.    Will Uot Fight Again Till August,  Billy Brady, who manages pugilist  Jeffries, has answered Sharkey's forfeit  by declaring that Jeffries will not fight  before August of next year, anyAvay, and  then he probably will be seen in a mill  to be decided in or near Paris. Brady  has his eye on the World's Exposition in  Paris in 1900, and thinks a mill there  -will swell his oavii bank account and the  bank account of Jeffries as well. And  when  Jeffries enters the ring in Paris it  Cut Prices is the  Order of the. Day   is  no]b likely that Sharkey  will be the  man iii the other corner.  "I don't see why Jeffries should fight  Sharkey again," manager Brady said.  "Jeffries has defeated him twice," he continued, "and I should think that Avould  be enough for any man. Jeffries has  earned a right to a good long rest, and I  intend that lie shall have it. He has  many engagements ahead, and I think he  will leave the fighters to themselves for  awhile.  "Let the other felloAvs thresh it out  among themselves. Wheu one of them  proves himself good enough for a try  against the champion���well, it Avill be  time enough to talk business then.  Within six mouths of the time he avou  the championship he defended it successfully. .... Noav he's going to haA'e a holiday.  Sharkey had his chance. Now he can  challenge all he Avants to, but that Avon't  affect us."  "I  thought so," Avas Tom O'Rourke's  comment   Avhen   he    learned  that   the  champion proposed to take a long holiday.    "He needs a long holiday," he continued.    "He doesn't Avant any more of  Sharkey's game.     He'll dodge   Tom as  long as he can, but we'll laud him yet,  and this time there'll be no chance for an  unfair decision���all the referee will have  to do*' will be to  count Jeffries out and  prevent him from resorting to foul tactics.  "If I was the only one Avho was dissatisfied with Siler's decision I wouldn't expect Jeffries' to  give  us  another fight.  But at least one-half of the men  who  witnessed the contest Avere dissatisfied  with the decision, and I thought Jeffries  would fight rather tiian go around wearing  half of the championship feathers  while Sharkey Avore the other half.    But  I guess   he counts  himself   lucky,  and  there   is   no  doubt   that   he is lucky.  Sharkey beat him out of the championship, but Siler handed it back to him on a  silver tray.   iMaybe that ain't luck!  "All I've got to say is that any time  Jeffries thinks he is a better man than  Sharkey Ave're ready to make a match.  Jeffries' statements of a few weeks ago  don't seem to go. Then he was going to  fight everybody off the reel. Noav he  wants a long holiday. Well, he's wise.  Sharkey punct?tred another of Jeffries'  bluffs when he met him in the ring.  Jeffries wanted r small ring, so that  Sharkey couldn't run away from him.  Who did the running? Ask. anybody  Avho was at the fight. Why, if the ring  had been a ten-acre lot it Avouldn't have  been big enough for Jeffries."  which would ha\Te died in infancy but for  his strength and skill.    A failure, and he  created  the  issue   in  Dominion  politics  which   put    the   Conservatives   out   of  office   and    brought    the    Liberals    in.  All   these   results   have   benefited   the  party Avhicli Joseph  Martin had  served,  but from the public standpoint the  man  who Avas denounced as a failure  must be  admired on  his  record as  the enemy of  abuses  and   the   promoter   of   reforms.  The  facts show that Joseph Martin  was  identified   Avitli   the   doAvnfall   of    one  Dominion   and  tAvo   provincial   governments.    The facts will show also that no  other Canadian politician  ever achieved  so    many     reforms     during     such    a  short   time in office.    The partisans, Avho  thanks " to    him,   have    risen    on    the  ruins  of opposing governments, have no  reason    to   call   Joseph   Martin   a failure.   The people avIio benefited by his  assaults on corporate  influence, have no  reason to call him a failure.   Joseph Martin may have  reason  to call   himself  a  failure, because he has secured   no   long  lease of office  by benefiting   the  people  with reforms or supplying his party with  winning issues.     If  a man like Joseph  Martin, Avho benefits the party and the  country without benefiting himself, is a  failure, the man   avIio   benefits   himself  Avithout benefiting   either  the  party or  the country is a success.     It would be  better for the people if there Avere more of  such failures in Canadian politics.

The local agents for the fire insurance  companies doing business in Nelson were  yesterday served with a notice that the  tax of $100 imposed by the city council  upou all companies doing business, in'Nelson was due and payable. The insurance  men have not decided what action they  will take. They appear to be generally  agreed that the imposition of the tax will  drive all of the small companies out of the  city, and those who pay the tax will  either add a proportion of the tax to their  rates, or make a slight change to cover  the same in all policies.
