 u  JAPAN MUST FIGHT RUSSIA NOW,,  If She Would Win.  London,   November   13.���Careful   inquiries made by the Associated Press reveal nothing extant in diplomatic circles  here to justify the alarmist views takeu  by this section of the press regarding the  situation in the Far East.    That a  serious denouement is close at hand, .is  is  indicated by advices from Shanghai during  the last  twenty-four hours,  is  regarded as incredible.    For a long time it  has  been  known  here  that China and  Japan  were closely   allied,  but  neither  Biitish   nor   American   diplomatists   in  Loudon    believed    that     tliis     alliance  is      of     an      offensive      nature.       At  any  rate, it   can be asserted  positively  that if Japan and China contemplate aggressive action against Russia, lord  Salisbury is  not aware of their intention,  and  it  is scarcely probable  that these  powers would  decide upon any definite  course Avithout at least.consulting Great  Britain, .wlio in   the nature of things,  AA'ould  be their ally, Avhether active  or  2)pissive.      HoAvever,   Avhile   tlie  foreign  office, officials haA'e no information tending to confirm'recent sensational reports,  they haA'e come to regard the Eastern problem as- so difficult in respect of getting  information that they Avould be surprised  at  nothing.    They have  endeavored  to  take precautions against everything.    In  the Avords  of a . British "officer : " While  reports of a rupture of Russia aud Japan  are easy of creation, and  AA'hile they are  liable to constant reiteration, so long as  the diplomatists of the press continue to  vieAV  the' Far   East Avith  such  serious  attention, it is certainly palpable that if  Japan  really means  to  strike a serious  , blow   at   Russian    control,    she    must  do      it      quickly,      for       very     soon  Russia       Avill       be        far       stronger  than    she     is    iioav."    Discussing     the  bearings   of   Russia's    i*uwal   estimates  upon       this      question,      the     official  asserted    that    it    certainly   indicated  the intention of the czar to  increase the  Russian fleet in  Chinese  Avater, Avhich if  done on the scope outlined in  the  estimates   Avould   leave   Japan    but   little  chance.    "Another phase of these reports  which has astonished me," said  the official, "is the suggestion   of   Chinese cooperation.   Thus far no nation has been  able     to     arouse     the     Chinese   sufficiently     to *' get     them     to    combine  in  military enterprises.     If Japan  has  done this, or even  believes she has, then  she has accomplished more  than Great  Britain, or Russia, has  in a  century of  effort.  'The action of the United States government in requesting tlie assurance from  foreign governments regarding tiie "open  door" policy in China has created intense  satisfaction in official circles. "Lord  Salisbury," according to the official quoted  above, "has gladly acquiesced in this step  on the part of the United States, AA'hich  i.s regarded as most potent evidence that  the United States have recognised the  im possibility* of conducting their foreign  affairs Avithout the co-operation of  other nations, and is the first practical  earnest of their desire to conduct  eastern negotiations- in concert with  European governments.  **%&��*;  <-***���"���  TUESDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER H, 1899.

He pays a high tribute to the surprising  intelligence and confidence of the American soldiers in their officers, and the  patience and bravery the soldiers have  sIioavii to a high degree. He says "They  avou Id be more efficacious, if instead  of being collected in comparatively enormous numbers, they Avere divided into  smaller forces, moving more rapidly and  living on the country instead of requiring  A'ast quantities of potted luxuries. Moreover, they look tired, as if they wanted  something to do. Except for an occasional game of baseball there is nothing  for the soldier to do but drink. Now if  they Avere British soldiers, they would  be diverted by all sorts of sports."

London, November 13. ���Sir Michael  Hicks-Beach, chancellor of the exchequer,  speaking this evening at Bristol said:  "The Avar in South Africa has destroyed  both conventions Avith tho Transvaal.  We must establish there a pure and  honest government, on the basis of equal  rights and on something more enduring  than paper safeguards. Subject to this,  Ave should give whatever government  may-be possible iu South Africa. No one  desires that great country to be governed  permanently from DoAvniug street.

London, November 13, ��� A. British  naval officer, aat1io has just returned from  a tour in the Philippines, has been inter-  vieAved regarding the situation there, of  whieli he takes a somewhat pessimistic  view.   According to the published hitcr-  Blunder of a Subordinate.  Lorenzo   Marqukz,   November  Father Matthews, chaplain of the  Fusileers, captured at the battle of  holson's Nek, has arrived here.    He com  plains that general Joubert promised he  would   be   permitted   to return to the  British camp, but instead he AAras taken  to'-Pretoria.     The  secretary  of Avar released him tAvo days after his arrival,  and he was permitted to  leave.'   He reports the prisoners Avell  cared for.   He  says the troops were sent out from Ladysmith   to occupy a position   with   the  object      of      preventing     tAAro      Boer,  forces      from     joining.     We     started  at half-past  eight  on  Sunday evening,  marched  ten  miles  and  got to the hill  about one  o'clock on Monday morning.  The first mishap Avas that the mountain  battery   stampeded   and   scattered   the  Avhole   lot   of   mules.      We" formed   up  again, and gained the top of the hill. The  guns AA'ere gone, but  not all the ammunition.   I do not knoAV what stampeded  the mules.   They knocked me   doAvn.   It  Avas     pitch   , dark.      We      had     one  hour's   sleep.     The   firing    began   just  after       daybreak,       being      someAvhat  slack--for.    a-   time;     -but   . finally  the Boers crept around, and then the firing became furious.    Our  men made a  breast/work  of   stones."    Soon   after 12  o'clock noon there Avas a general cry of  " cease fire," but our fclIoAvs would  not  stop firing.    Major Adye  came up and  confirmed the order, and then the bugle  sounded  "cease  fire."     In   our locality  tliere was a rumor that a white flag Avas  raised by a youug officer avIio thought his  batch of ten men Avere the sole survi vors;  but there Avere 900alh'e, avc having started Avith perhaps 1000.   I think many of  the   batterymen  escaped.     Our officers  and men were furious at the surrender.  The Boers did not seem  to be in great  numbers on the spot, but I heard that the  main body had galloped  off.     Our  men  had to give up their arms and the officers  were sent to commandantSteenekamp. The  officers then ordered the men  to fall in.  The officers AA'ere taken away from  the  meii_ a_nd_sent__to_general_ Joubert���the-  same day, traveling iu mule wagons and  sleeping at night in stores  on the  way.  The next morning they took a train at  Waschbank for Pretoria.    They are very  Avell treated, and  so  I have heard  are  the men.   There has been no unpleasantness in Pretoria.    The officers are in a  school building, and are alloAved to Avalk  as they pleased in the grounds.     Tho  surrender, in my judgment, Avas a great  blunder   caused   by   a   misunderstanding.       Major    Adye    AA'as   much    put  out.   The Avhite flag was not hoisted by  the Irish Fusileers.  A Change in the Cabinet.  Ottawa, November 13.-���The early  retirement of Hon. Dr. Borden as minister of militia i.s not improbable. He has  not been enjoying the best of health recently. In fact, he Avas unable to join  the other members of the government in  giving a finai farewell to our force for  South Africa at Quebec. In many respects he has taken a more intelligent  interest in the militia than any of his  predecessors, and where he has failed it  has been because of political influence.  It is said that he desires to be appointed director-general of the medical  service. The present officer, colonel  Neilson, has grown gray in the  service, aud, haA'ing ample private means,  is ready to retire at any time. The present intention is to give Dr. Borden's portfolio to Hon, James Sutherland, M.P.,  and it was Avith this object in view that  he was taken into the cabinet. There is  no member of the liouse more popular  among the militia generally than major  Sutherland, who has been for many years  paymaster of the 22nd Oxford Rifles. Dr.  Borden's place in the cabinet as a Nova  Seotian representative Avill, iu all probability, be taken by D. C. Fraseiy the  member for Guy shorn:      '/'--'���''   '���  London, November 14���4.50 a. m.���The  paucity of news from the front still  leaves the chief interest center in the  arrival of the reinforcements.

Estcourt, Natal, November 9���Evening.���An armored-train company of the  Royal Dublin Fusileers started at half**  past one this.afternoon and readied the  break in the raihvay line about half a  mile from Coienso without incident.  Captain * Hensley, with several , men,  reconnoitered and met a native, who said  the Boers were occupying the town.  While this conversation Avas in progress the Boers opened fire from  Fort Wylie, but did no injury. Captain  Hensley thereupon retired on the train,  after Avhich the Fusileers volleyed- on the  fort. As there Avas no response, the presumption was that the Boers had retreated.

IF DONE BY LOCAL CONTRACTORS  Nelson Would be Benefited.  It is expected that something definite  Avill be learned this Aveek from Montreal  Avith respect to the Canadian Pacific's intentions in connection with the buildiug  of the extension to Balfour. The local  contractors avIio tendered on the Avork  expect to know before the end of the  Aveek Avhether their tender has been accepted or rejected, and from the circumstance that their tender has not been returned, they conclude that their chances  are good for securing the work. The  only thing they fear is the influence of  the big contractors of the East. As far  as their finances go they are prepared to  post a guarantee of $100,000 for the due  completion of the contract.  Just what advantage it Avould be to  Nelson to have the work done by local  contractors may be estimated from their  e tperience Avith the AA'ork now being  done by Tierney <fc Co. on the line betAveen Nelson aud Robson. Up to date  this Avork has only involved an expenditure of some $37,000, but the contractors,  by placing all their orders Avith local  merchants, have placed in circulation  during the past six months for hardware,  meats, groceries and other supplies just  $9490. This is a large sum of money, but  the contractors say that the purchase of  the whole amount of supplies -iu Nelson  has not cost them $100 more than if the  goods had been purchased in the East.  The line from Nelson to - Balfour is 22  miles long, and fair estimates for the AA'ork  of the kind AArould range from $2.5,000 to  $28,000 per mile. Taking the former  figures, the cost for the Avhole work  Avould aggregate over half a million dollars. The cost of supplies will form a  considerable amount of th iti, and if the  AA'oik is secured by local contractors the  bulk of supplies Avill be purchased from  local merchants. Where there is so much  at stake, it Avould not be amiss for the  board of trade aud the city council to  throAV Avhatever influence they may  possess Avith the railway company into  tlie scale in favor of the local men.

The meeting of the members of the  South Kootenay Boaid of Trade  Avas Avell attended last evening.  The question of the mail service came up  in the form of a letter from H. AV. C.  Jackson, secretary roi the associated  boards of trade, and on motion of J. M.  Lay, seconded by T. G. Procter, a committee composed of Messrs. Gamble,  Bannerman and Swannell Avas appointed  to look into the matter of the present  mail service and report to the board.  A letter Avas read from the Kootenay  Supply Company suggesting that the  board admit to membership firms doing  business in Nelson, instead of individual  members of such firms, but no action AA'as  taken.  J. Roderick Robertson called attention  to the dangerous state of the city Avharf,  and a resolution Avas passed suggesting  that in the event of the city couucil submitting other loan bylaAvs for the assent  of the ratepayers, that a bylaw be submitted asking for the raising of sufficient  money to put the city wliarf in a safe  condition.  On the motion of James LaAvrence, a  resolution Avas moved in Avhich the board  noted Avith .pleasure the proposal of the  Canadian Pacific Rail\Aray Company to  establish machine shops and make Nelson  a divisional point, and trusted that the  city council and the railway company  Avouldrbe able to arrive at a satisfactory  agreement with respect to the same.  The service of the local telephone company Avas also touched up, and upon motion of James Bannerman, seconded by  James LaAvrence, the secretary of tho  board Avas instructed to write to the  manager of the company, calling attention to the unsatisfactory nature of the  company's service in this city, and also to h  the fact that merchants in Nelson are  charged tAvice as much for the service as  are merchants iu Rossland and Grand  Forks.  On motion of A. Ferland, seconded by  James Bannerman, the secretary Avas instructed to Avrite to the general passenger  agent of the Canadian Pacific Raihvay  Company, and request that during the  approaching holiday season that special  passenger rates be issued from Nelson to  Eastern points, the same as is done from  other points on the company's main line, *  and that a similar request be forAA'ardecl  to the agents of the Nelson & Fort Sheppard, the Great Northern and the Northern Pacific raihvay companies. ,  C.

William Chase, who has been in the  Yukon district for the past t\A'o years,  arrived in Nelson on "Sunday evening.  He AA'as among, the first Avho left DaAV-  son City for the Cape Nome diggings last  spring, and Jus opinion of it is that Cape  Nome is a much better place for an individual miner than the Klondike, The  most remarkable thing about the" new .  district is the beach'diggings. There  Avas a stretch of beach some fourteen  miles iu length which it is estimated  yielded from $30,000 to $00,000 per day.  All along this beach fine gold was found  from six inches to four feet beloAA' the  surface, and it paid not less than $10 per  day for every man Avon.king on it.  Chase says that there AA'ere fully  1500 rockers Avorking Avith two men  on each, and the ground AA'as so  rich that it Avas decided among the  miners themselves that each man should  hold ouly so much gr<_und_as_h.e could  "cover with a long-handled shovel. The  creek digging- in the Came Nome district  AA'ere also vevy rich. Wheu Mr. Chase  left DaAvson City all the Kootenay men  Jm tho Yukon Avere in good health and  .spirits,. Ife left Cape Nome about the  middle of Oetober. The .season was then  closed, and the miners were dying off like  sheep from the effects of a typhoid epidemic. He aviII return to Cape Nome in  the .spring.       No Lethbridge Coal to be Had.  The strike of the miners at the Gattlt  Coal Company's mines at Lethbiidge,  Alberta, has virtually put that company  out of the coal business in tliis city, The  coal aya-> very popular in Nelson and up-  AA'tuds of fifty cars woro disposed of in  tin"*-, city during October, but since the  strike luis been on it has been impossible  Lo secure any coal from the local agents.  As the local agents expected to haA'e a  market for fully 500 cars this Avintor  the> suggested that the miners demand  for an increase in AA-agea be met by adding  50 cents per ton upon the retail pi ice of  the coal. This the company evidently  declined to do,aud the result is that there  is no Gain It coal on the market.  Licuior Dealers Organize.

Today  forty-nine men are employed at the mine  and seven at the mill. At the mine and  mill under the management of the Nelson'  man about the same number of  men are said to be employed.  They were secured by sending agents all  over the country, and were taken to the  neighborhood of the mine in special trains  and afterwards guarded by special constables, and are now paid what is considered unfair wages. The contrast is all  the more striking, as ifc is generally admitted that the mine managed by the Nelson man is by far the richer property. '  / Former congressman, .lames Hamilton-Lewis did hob  ifiako liis {rip in vain to England. He has suoceeded in  getting the claims of the Atlin miners before the joint/  -high commission, with the prospect that Americans injured by harsh Canadian regulations will obtain damages.,  The above is from the Spokane Review.  , Tlie harsh Canadian regulation was the  changing by the legislature of Bi'itish  Columbia of a provincial law. The law  as it now stands debars aliens from locating placer ground in this province. If  we are not mistaken, aliens are not allowed to locate either placer or quartz claims  in the United States. Yet James Hamilton Lewis of Seattle and the Review of  Spokane are not making any great effort  to have the law changed.

The general passenger agent of the  New York Central railway is taking the  initiative in a movement to abolish the  practice of tipping on dining and sleeping  cars, and the movement has already received the support of the oflicials of  several trunk lines. The tipping practice  is a source of much annoyance to the  travelling public. Courtesy of treatment  should be expected f roin a Avaiter if he  has not been tipped, but as the great  majority of the travelling public cannot  afford to be lavish in their incidental expenditures, the waiters iu the cars devote themselves almost exclusively to  the services of those whom they regard  as being of some wealth. A railroad, line  wliich abolishes the tipping system, by  forbidding waiters to receive tips, will  secure a uniform treatment for their  passeugers and advertise their line to the  vast majority of the travelling public.  The Canadian railways might well arrange to bring about the desirable reform.  HUDSON'S BAY  COMPANY.  INCORPORATED 1670.

DRAFTS ISSUED   COLLECTIONS MADE; ETC.  SAVINGS. BANK BRANCH.  -   CURRENT RATE OF INTEREST PAID  A SCOTCHMAN WHO REPRESENTS  Great Britain in the Par East.  The British empire has  entrusted  its  interests in the Far East to a tall,  thin,  red-headed Scotchman.   He is described  as-a man so dignified that it is painful to  be near him.   He is not a pleasant person  either to know or,to talk with, but he is  described as a man who can take a heathen  colony and civilize it quicker  than  any  one   in  the  queen's  service.    He is sir  Claude McDonald, new British ambassador  to  China.-'    He was promoted  to  that  place because in Africa he about fulfilled  the ideal of a colonial governor.    He was  heard from last wheii the Germans were  in Kiao-Chou  Bay and the  empress  of  China was accused of trying to  kill  oif  the young emperor. The report went out  that the lad was dying.   The dowager  empress is hostile to the English,  who  have   championed the emperor's cause.  The reports contiuued to grow alarming  until one day a note came to the dowager  empress from the British ambassador.   It  said simply:    "Time for the  emperor to  get better," and the cables soon announced  his   recovery.      Sir Claude's  reputation  had    preceded   him.     And   though his  methods   are  incisive  and  effectual  his  name does not inspire the dislike, even  terror, that attaches to sir Redvers Buller.  ''Buller kills; just kill's," the colonial  Englishman will tell you.   "Sir Claude is  most cousidei'iite and even kind.    But  woe to the person who tries to trick  Mini" "      " - ���   -     --*  ,  Sir Claude's method is to bring about  results gradually and let the native develop himself, "You cannot transplant  a civilization of twenty centuries on a  tribe of savages* and expect them to  "breathe it in," is liis contention. At the  same time sir Claude believes in being  obeyed and in stringent measures when  they are required. One practice of the  West Coast Africans which he thought  should be abruptly stopped was that of  sacrificing human life. On feast days or  when entertaining a guest it has been  the custom along the banks of the Niger  for a chief to have several prisoners put  to death. In Central Africa there is still  a great deal of this done,  McDonald put a stop to it on the Gold  Coast by one move.    He had been away  waking a vacation to England, and 011 returning found a native uprising caused  by   several   chiefs    slaughtering    some  prisoners.    There were fourteen^ guilty_  1 chiefs_in ail lincl'sir Claude had thorn  I bs ought before him early in the morning,  Banging ten iu front of him he said :  'Now you havo never been here before  |[t is justice that you should be  warned.  3o away and nover come back.     You  j wo have beeu here before.   You know  Jie law.   To the chains.   But you two  j ire incorrigible.   There's no good in you.  'm going to hang you.    Sergeant, take  1 hem away and hang them.   Orderly, is  I ny breakfast ready ?"  While sir Claude's methods are so in-  1'j-iive, ho is not devoid of geniality and  jciudiiess and the natives were actually  'ond of him in Africa. This was true  I Aso of his subordinate officers. A party  if them were living for a time on a war-  | hip at the mouth of the Niger and sir  Claude came there to take dinner.  "By the way," he said, when champagne was brought ou, "I ordered some  1 ue Burgundy from an English firm to be  hnthere.   Did it arrive?"  The  officers looked at one another in  bnfusion and finally plucked up courage  p explain tlutt the wine had arrived aud  ad been consumed.    "We did not-know,  I ii whom it belonged," they hastened to  a concession than might be supposed for  a person who commands in his particular  sphere the respect of a king. It shows  him thoughtful of others.  While sir Claude is not a military man,  he possesses a coolness in time of danger  that would make him a warrior if his aspirations lay in that direction.    He took  command personally of an expedition up  the Niger   to quell   an  uprising once,  travelling on  a big tugboat armed with  rapid-fire guns.    When ninety miles up  the river a fusillade of bullets and arrows  came from the banks and every man on,  the boat;suddeuly discovered that he had  business   below,    excepting sir   Claude.  He stood   leaning against  a stanchion  smoking a long cigar, aud when the storm  burst never   moved.      Casting   his   eye  about he noted where the fire came from  and then gave Orders to train a Maxim  on the bushes.   The attack soon ceased  and sir Claude looked about for his cigar.  It had been shot away by a bullet.  - McDonald had the native Africans so  completely under his control that  they,  would obey him to the death.   Oh one  occasion  he was out hunting elephants  and the party suddenly found themselves  in the heart of a stampede.   Those who  have been in  such a predicament   say  there,   is   nothing,   else   so    terrifying.  Kuowing the danger in this instance, sir  Claude shouted out for everyone to stand  perfectly still and only leap to the side  when ah elephant   charged upon   him.  The entire party obeyed as one man with  the result that not a person received any  injury.    Such actions gave   sir Claude a  wonderful reputation in West Africa.  With the natives of the Houssa district  McDonald was held in adoration. He  was the first governor who did not make  an attempt to abolish Mohammedanism,  the followers of which are numerous on  the West Coast. The Houssa natives  were allowed to build mosques and not  required to drill in the early morning and  evening, the best time of day for work in  that country. This gave opportunity for  the prayers, and sir Claude's thoughtful-  ness was so much appreciated that the  Houssa troops became the best and most  loyal on the coast.  He did not interfere with polygamy,  either, and with' witchcraft only when  asked to. Witchcraft is practised all  through Central and South Africa, and  the person accused of being a witch is required to go through some ordeal to disprove it, such as holding the hand in boiling water, drinking poison, and being  thrown in the river with the hands tied.  Oftentimes the accused one demanded  snoh a trial, and then sir Claude did not  interfere. If appealed to he gave protection.  In all his administration his aim was  to give the negro civilization only so fast  as lie could digest it. He did not abolish  slavery at a swoop, but made laws whereby those in bondage could gradually buy  their freedom. lie imposed no custom  duties on the native to hamper trade until they demanded them. He made them  observe no sanitary laws until the  negroes took example from the cleanliness of tlie^whitesjbnd_began_to_follow_it.-  He"didliot~believe in missionaries spending thousauds of dollars to establish  schools, but waited for the jiative gradually to develop them himself as he saw  their advantage iu the whites.  from vast areas, and the further works  projected by him show that lie means to  build a monument for himself in the  moulding of that region into a glorified  state. His watchword from the first has  seemed to be progress, and he does not  not believe that it can ever be except  under British soArereignty, and for the  progress and for the dream of removing  all clouds from the sovereignty, the Boers  thirst for his life.  He offends the inertia which ruled  there for a century. He has made a  great fortune, but that with him has  been, but an incident; his thoughts have  always been higher than a mere dream of  piling up money. An idea of him may  be obtained by an anecdote which is told  of him. Away back Chinese Gordon  asked him to go with him, as his secretary to Khartoum, which Rhodes declined, whereupon Gordon half-angrily  said: "You are one of those men that  never approve of anything that you do  not organize yourself." At this Rhodes  was lost in thought for a moment, and  then replied: "I'm inclined to think  you are right." -  It is only twenty-six years since he left,  Oxford, England, a .sickly boy, and went  to South Africa for his health. Since  then he has organized the diamond mines  on a safe basis; he has been premier of  Cape Colony.'; he has fought and conquered savage tribes; he has obtained  concessions from dusky kings for mining  lands; formed the British South African  Company;. opened the Transvaal gold  mines; has built and is building railroads,  and is,how pushing a telegraph line.to  meet Kitchener's in North Africa, and  has accumulated a fortune of $00,000,000.  He was a clergyman's son and was born  at Bishop's Stradford forty-six years ago.  He is liable to own all South Africa if he  lives twenty years longer.  Wear Coats of Mail.  Improvement in guns, says an exchange, has created a demand for coats  of mail for members of invading armies.  Many now avail themselves of this protection, though all are not ready to admit it. Hundreds of vests of mail, it is  said, are sold annually to officers in the  British army. The mail is enclosed in  leather casing, which is sewn inside the  tunic, so as to be invisible, unless the  garment is picked to pieces. And the  same with helmets���a similar device is  fixed as lining, so as to give additional  protection in case of need. Some officers  are not above wearing mail vests underneath tlieir tunics, where they are= unseen by their comrades, wlio, although  they may scoff in time of peace, would  be only too glad to don one themselves  "when in the middle of hostilities.  The majority of mail-wearers are officers, because the suits are very expensive, costing about $50. Some enlisted  men are prepared to spend that amount  in order to insure themselves, to a certain  extent,'against the enemy's spent bullets.  Against a modern bullet fired at short  distance, ,of course, these suits of armor  are next to useless, although they may  be instrumental iu turning, its course or  stopping its penetrating power. During  the Chhio-Japauese Avar of 1895, several  hundred, suits of armor were sent from*  London % to the-Orient, where they were  eagerly bought up by the combatants at  a heavy ijrice.  During the American war of last year,  a London trader, according to a London  paper, did the same thing, but it was  not nearly so successful, for he found he  had been forestalled by American firms,  and such officers in the American army  as had intended going in for a suit of  mail had already obtained them. He  then offered his goods to the Spaniards,  who proved to be good customers, and  were prepared to pay a good price for the  luxury. '"  A notable instance is cited by the paper  of the value of mail, as occurring during  the battle pf Omdurman, September, 1898.  One officer got into the thick of the  fight, and was slashed on all sides by the  dervishes. His men were surprised to see  that he had. escaped all the force of the  blows, expecting every minute, to see him  fall from his horse, a mass of wounds.  After the battle was over, however, he  appeared pei'fectly unscathed, save for a,  few slight wounds on his chest. Then he  revealed the suit of mail, which covei'ed  him, and to which he owed his life.

It is stud that the Boers htive offered a  reward of $25,000 for tho head of .Cecil  Rhodes. Still the friends of Rhodes declare that he is "the man who made  South Africa." If this is not quite true  it is true that lie has made a transformation there. He organized mining on an  enlightened plan ; he has covered South  Africa with a network of railroads, the  extreme northern end of whieh is well  on the way to meet the other road coming down from Cairo; lie has subdued  savage tribes; has introduced scientific  farming, festered manufactures, and  been an inspiration to all that region.

Tho prisoners Meltobbio and Grant,  who escaped from custody at Moyie after  being sentenced to six mouths' imprisonment for assault, were brought before  judge Forin yesterday to elect upon the  new charge of escaping from custody.  They elected .speedy trial, and will probably be tried today. They made their  escape from tho constable at Moyie by  cutting tlieir handcuffs, but were recaptured shortly afterwards by constable  Wilson at Creston.   O. Fit/.patriek, the man who was  caught in the Neelands Avarehouse, was  again remanded yesterday morning upon  a charge of vagrancy. So far, the police  have been unable to connect Fitzpatriek  with the theft of any of the goods taken  from the warehouse, but he will bo  charged with the theft of an overcoat  from George Key, superintendent of construction ou the Bank of Montreal  building.    Superintendent Michaels of the Spokane Northern Telegraph Company is in  Nelson. He is a special war correspondent located at Spokane for the people of  Nelson interested in the South African  war.    At the next regular session of the council an application will be made by local  parties for a telephone franchise for a  period of twenty-five years.  Freight for local merchants is beginning  to pour into Nelsou in a most unprecedented manner. On Sunday the barges  brought in 41 carloads, yesterday they  brought in 30 cars, and there are 45  more cars expected today. This will  give a total of 120 cars for the first three  days of the present week. Of this incoming freight fully 60 cars are consigned to local merchants and much of tlie  balance ie distributed from Nelson to  Kootenay points.  Superintendent Marpole left the Coast  yesterday on his way to this city and is  expected to arrive this evening or Wednesday. A special meeting of the city  council will probably be held after Mr.  Marpole's arrival to consider the proposals of the raihvay company with respect to making a divisional point of  Nelson.    Hon. William Paterson, minister of  customs, is expected to arrive in Nelson  on Wednesday. His secretary (John  Bain) left Ottawa"for Nelson on tho 10th.
