 MET THE ENEMY FOR THE THIRD  Time and Whipped Them.  London, November 29.���The expected  great battle at  Modder  River has been  fotight, and general  Methuen has  added  added another victory to  his   achievements of the past week.    That the Boers  defended  their  positions with all  their  old gallantry is amply proved by general  Methuen's dispatch, and it will  probably  be further testified  to  when  the heavy  British casualties shall be made known.  Tliere appears to bo no doubt that  general  Methuen  gained  a real advantage,  though the details must be  awaited before the full effect of his ten hours'  desperate fighting cau be  gauged.    Presum-  * ably the burgher army was on the south  bank of the river: but whether when the  Boers  retreated  they crossed  the river  ". northward or retired in an easterly direction into the Orange Free State  remains  unexplained.    The British appear to have  surmounted  tho difficulties  of   crossing  the river, and to have seized for themselves a position nortli of the stream.  This  success of the British clears another stage  ofthe  road  to   Kimberley,  the siege of  which general  Cronje  must have partially raised in order to give battle to general Methuen.    The  burghers are understood to have a strong laager at Spytfon-  tein,  fourteen   miles   north   of   Modder  River,  so  another  engagement possibly J  awaits the British  before  they can commence the last stage of eleven miles from  Spytfontein  to  Kimberley,  though general Cronje would  thereby run a great  risk of   being   caught   between  general  Metheun and colonel Kekewich, the British commander at Kimberley.  Meagre Details of the Fight.  Modder Rivi.k, November 28.���Re-  conuoitered at 5 a.m. the enemy's position  ou the river .Modder aud found them  strongly entrenched antl concealed. No  means of outflanking, river being full.  Action commenced with artillery, mounted  infantry and cavalry at 5:30. Guards on  the right, Ninth brigade on the left. Attacked position in widely extended formation at 0:30, and supported by the  artillery found itself in front of the whole  Boer force, 8000 strong, with two large  guns, four Krupps, etc.  The naval brigade rendered great  assistance from the railway. After desperate hard fighting, which lasted ten  hours, our meu, without water or food,  and in. the burning sun, made the enemy  quit his position.  General -Pole Care was successful in  getting a small party across the river,  gallantly assisted by ."WO sappers. 1 speak  in terms of high praise of the conduct of  all who were engaged in one of the  hardest and most, trying fight*-, hf the  annuls of the British .army. If, I can  mention one arm particularly, it is the  two batteries of artillery.  ���"���J.  *-*.*_.  *S-'Aff*<p-s,  -*Sivfe*..  THURSDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER 30,  1899.

The British shelled the enemy out of the trenches and then  charged.    The result was terrible."  %  m  m  m  m  m  m  ��  m  m  m  **  ���_.  �����  m  &���  More British Troops Embark.  London, November 29.���Enthusiastic  scenes marked the departure today of  the first composite detachment of the  battalion of Household cavalry going to  South Africa. Crowds thronged Windsor, cheering and singing, and similar  scenes were witnessed in London in spite  of the dense fog. Lord Wolseley bade  the Horse Guards (the Blues) farewell at  Knight's Bridge barracks. He made a  speech reminding the men of the grand  military deeds of the Blues, saying  he was assured that they would  do their utmost to add to the  glory of the regiment of which they  were so justly proud, and wishing them  God speed, good, luck and a safe return.  Cannonading Ladysmith Daily.  LonixTn, "Novemb"eiT307^Th^Stancl ai-d  publishes the following dispatch from  Ladysmith, dated Tuesday, November  21st: "Last Sunday 1 had a whole sack-  full of "my correspondence returned to  me, showing the difficulty of communication with the outside world. The Boers  cannonade us almost daily, but there  have been few casualties. Evidently the  object of the enemy is to exhaust the  spirits of the British troops bv incessant  harrassing. The prospects of the British  advance from the soutli impelled them to  redouble their efforts. They are mounting more guns and drawing the lines of  investment closer."  Startling Information,  London, November 80.���The Daily  Chronicle this morning publishes what it  calls "startling information."1 It says  Russia has decided to establish a permanent diplomatic agency in Cabul next  spring. The ameer's consent has been  obtained, and pour parlers have been exchanged between count Muravioff and  Great Britain, who is not likely to oppose  the step. ���   An American Will Help the British.  Newport N'rws, Virginia, November  29.���Colonel G. P. Austin, who fought in  the Mexican and civil wars, applied to  the British war office several days ago  for an appointment in the British army  in the Transvaal. Today he received orders from Lansdowne to report to lord  Pauncefote at Washington. He started  tonight for that city.  A Beiiuiem Mass Ceieta-ated.  Rome, November 29.���A requiem mass  was celebrated in the English Catholic  church here today for the repose of the  Increased Because of Brief News.  London, November 30���4.30 a. '111.���  Twelve hours' reflection upoui geueral  Methuen's brief dispatch has only served  to increase public anxiety and suspense.  All kinds of speculation is indulged in  over the absence of any indication as to  whether the Boers occupied the north or  south bank of Modder river. The best  opinion inclines to the latter theory, and  it is pointed out that the British must  have been utterly exhausted if they  could not follow up the fleeing Boers and  crush them, asthe enemy crowded over  the bridge, their compulsory line of retreat.   -  The Morning Post's military correspondent, 'who has "usually shown great ability, suggests that the Boers are still on  the south side of the river, and that the  bridge is in their hands. He points out  the great danger to the small British  force that crossed on pontoons. The importance attached to this pontooning operation is proved by the fact that general  Pole-Care was one of the only two brigadier-generals who were selected to superintend it. No word has since arrived  either from general Methuen noryfroni  Natal.   Speculation therefore is useless.  It Is believed that general Methuen  will be instantly reinforced from Cape  Town by two battalions of infantry, a  detachment of cavalry, and a battery of  artillery.   ,.  Colonel Albreeht, who is directing the  work of the Boers iu opposing general  Methuen, was originally an officer in the  Austrian army. He entered the Free  State army, and soon brought its artillery to a high state of efficiency. He is  known as_<__n able a_rtilleryist_and_strate__  gist.  Some surprise is expressed at the fact  that general Methuen's troops had to  fight without food or water. It seems,  however, that he is not using tinned rations. He seizes and pays for fresh food.  Usually he begins a march about 3 in the  morning, after a breakfast of cocoa.  Then he does his fighting or marching,  and afterwards pitches his camp near the  best water, dining when his transport arrives. The afternoons arc given over to  resting. Only bare necessities are allowed.  As one correspondent, describes it, the  British are fighting an omnipresent, but  almost invisible foe. Unstinted admiration is everywhere expressed for the  splendid work of general Methuen's column. Witli a force really inadequate, he  he has marched fifty-three miles and  fought three battles within seven days.  While no credence is given to the rumor that Ladysmith has fallen, the scare  serves to impress the public with the  danger of what is still within the bounds  of possibility. Such a misfortune would  probably produce a formidable revolt  among the Cape Dutch.  The Daily News .says: "Whatever  comes we must brace our nerves to meet  it. Certainly today it looks as if we had  before us a very stern and earnest struggle, before we see our way clear to final  victory."          Revised List of the Killed and Wounded.  London, November 29.���A revised list  of the British casualties at Belnioht  shows: Officers killed 4, wounded 22?  non-commissioned officers and privates  killed 46, wounded 225, of which number  the Guards had 35 killed aud 150  wounded,  POLITICIANS  ARE  EXCHANCINQ  Letters.Yards Long.  Victoria, November 29.���[Special   to  The Tribune.]���One evidence of the poli-  titians' belief in |the proximity of a general provincial election is an  acrimonous  discussion now in progress in the columns  of the Colonist on. the attitude of that  paper   against    dividing    on   Dominion  party lines. _ McPhillips, one of the members for Victoria, has somewhat pointedly  challenged  the  right of'this long-recognized organ of the party to speak  for  them in this matter, and classes it with  many distinguished, but disaffected Liberals, who on .street corners waylay Conservative members with advice as to the  course   they   should   , pursue.      Gordon  Hunter,   who   comes   under   the   latter  class, has taken up the cause against McPhillips, and they are exchanging  open  letters   yards   long.     In   the meantime  there is evidence of departure from the  radical policy characteristic of the  government   under Joe Mat-tin's .direction.  One instance now attracting attentiou is  that of the Fernie townsite title, which-  has lateiy been issued by the provincial  government, though Martin had advised  to the contrary,  and  was  prepared to  contend  in  the courts that the  British  Columbia   Southern   Railway  Company  had forfeited their provincial land grant  by the act of taking a Dominion charter,  which he held superseded the  provincial  charter, of which the land grant  was an  attachment.  ONE MONTH'S^ PROFITS WERE  Over Four Hundred Thousand Dollars.  New York, November 29.���The police  authorities today permitted the newspaper men to glance over the books of the  Franklin Syndicate at the Vernon avenue  police station, Brooklyn. The records<  show that almost until the last flourish  bf William E. Miller's trumpet, there was  public confidence;.iu the concern to the  extent of thousands of dollars. There  were a dozen ledgers, journals and cash  books. For the most part these account  books were blank, but there were figures  in. plenty to show what an enormous  business: was carried on. There were  probably 2000 names entered altogether,  almost every section of the United States  and Canada having representation in the  ciientle in amounts ranging from $10 to  $1000. These figures are interesting reading: October 27 th and 28th, total paid  out $3485,.total received $59,370; November 3rd, received $03,355, paid out $4224;  November 16th";-paid out $14,569, taken  in $50,897. Oneof the ledgers shows this  balance for the period from October 11th  to November 17th: Total paid out $219,-  650, total received $620,545, balance $404,-  880.    Finance Minister Banqueted.

He delivered a speech dealing with the policy  of the government and replying to the  criticism of the opposition.  ployed. The staff now numbers ten men.  Work has been resumed on the Standard group, under contract. It was recently bonded by G. Dean of Three  Forks.    The Hay Not Up to Grade.  Boston, November 29.���The sailing of  the steamer Montauk, which has been  loading hay for South Africa, has been  delayed a number of days, as much of  the hay has failed to pass inspection.  This delay is not only unsatisfactory to  the British government, as the hay is  greatly needed by the cavalry in South  Africa, but it is also a matter of no small  expense to the government, as the demurrage on the steamer is $150 a day.  The Canadian oflicials acting for the  British government have agreed to get  the .steamer Montauk at Cape Town by  the 1st day of January, however.  Protesting Against Military Rule in Idaho.  New York, November 28.���At a meeting to protest against the treatment of  the Coeur d'Alene miners at Wardner,  Idaho, held at Cooper Union tonight under the auspices of the Central Federated  Unions, resolutions were adopted protesting against the action of the Wardner authorities in imprisoning the miners  and the inaction of the authorities at  Washington, and demanding of the president of the United States that those  incarcerated miners receive a speedy trial  by jury.

London, November 29.���Addressing a  meeting of 7000 this evening, Joseph  Chamberlain devoted the main part of  his speech to a justification of the government's policy in South Africa, and to  a refutation of the arguments of the  earl of Kimberley, sir Henry Campbell-  Bannerman and others. "According to  sir Henry Campbell-Bannerman," said  Mr. Chamberlain, "we ought to have  skulked back to our holes when Kruger  refused to listen to our peaceful representations. That would have lost us  South Africa, weakened our hold upon  India, and earned us the contempt of  mankind." He reiterated that war was  inevitable, although doubtless Mr. Kruger would have preferred to wait until  England was involved with some other  power.  Referring to the conditions under wliich  the Gladstone government granted the  convention of J 888, he denied that the  grant was made because Mr. Gladstone  feared a general Dutch rising. "The real  reason," he asserted, "was because the  Gladstone government believed the annexation of the Transvaal in 1877 occurred under a misapprehension by lord  Beaconsfield that a majority of the Boers  desired annexation. It was afterwards  proved that this was not their desire, and  the annexation was cancelled."  Referring to the basis and conditions  of .settlement after the war, Mr. Chamberlain said: "J do not like to divide the  skin before I have caught the bear, but I  must insist that the Boers by their own  action have created a clean .sheet upon  which we can write what we please; and  I feel convinced that our loyal fellow-  subjects iu Gape Colony and Natal would  regard no solution as durable, which did  not provide beyond the shadow of a  doubt for the supremacy of the British  flag, the only guarantee of settled peace  and the only security for the just treatment of al! the races of South Africa."  MORE OR LESS ACTIVITY IN THE  Gamps Around Slocan Lake.  New Denver, November 29.���The Calumet and Hecla group, situated on the  Dayton creek divide, has been bonded to  J. C.

Clement, Nelson and Mulvey are the owners of the group, which  is looked upon as a big proposition, the  ledge being upwards of 40 feet in width,  A crosscut tunnel has been driven upwards of 200 feet, cutting the ledge at  good depth. The bonders put a small  force of men to work this -week, and they  will continue developing throughout tlie  winter. It is thought a mill will bo  erected later on to reduce the ore for  shipment.  The Mollie Hughes is making a 30-ton  shipment of ore to the Trail smelter this  week. Ore i.s still being taken out of tho  workings, though the bulk of the shipment was sortings from previous operations.  Twenty men were put to work Monday  building a wagon road from Slocan City  to Lemon creek, iu the interests of the  Warner-Miller syndicate.  Morris Davis and Charles Heinze purpose developing the Mollie, on Ten-mile,  this winter, They have finished a cabin  and blacksmith shop and got things in  good shape, hi the upper workings a  four-inch streak of promising ore, carrying copper, was struck during the summer.  The Oregon City, Ten-mile, was exported this week by J. K. Clark of this  town.  The Payne has commenced a new crosscut tunnel to tap the ledge. Four men  are employed under contract.  Dr. Gomm, who recently pnrchesed almost all of the Get-There-KIi group on  Twelve-mile creek from 0, W. Harrington, will stock the property through  Vancouver parties.  Several improvements are being  effected at the Miller Creek mine, and  when completed three shifts will be em- :  Discourses on Prices of Provisions.  J. McMartin, agent of the Lake' of the  Woods Milling Company for the Kootenay country, is in town for a* few days.  Speaking of the exceptionally low price  for wheat and other cereal products, he  said: "The reason for the low price of  farm grains at the present time is the  shortness of time required to produce a  crop. When the recent impetus came to  all lines of industry, none of the industrial occupations offered a quicker return than the ceieals of the faim.  Where two to thiee years aie required  to produce and place on the roaiketa*  beef steer, floui may 1 each the consumer-  in six months. The price of all products  is iuprh*"- -"''an it has been for years,-a"-."  is certain to temam high for some time  to come.  "Manitoba f.uineis are being paid 50  to 5,> cents for their wheat, while in comparison to beef and pork, wheat ought to  be worth close to one dollar a bushel.  Wheat in tlie Palouse country is selling  as low as 36 cents per bushel, 'while- the  price of cattle, hogs and sheep for stock  purposes is simply prohibitory.  ''The Lake of the Woods Milling Gom-  pany paid an 8 per cent dividend on Septembei' 1st, and are now about to increase tlieir capital stock $1,000,000. The  company operates two mills, one at Kee-  watin, Ontario, better known as the Lake  of the Woods, and the other at Portage  la Prairie, Manitoba. The former has a  capacity of 3000 barrels per day and the  latter a capacity of 1000 barrel*?."  Quick Mail Service.  Greenwood, one of the chief towns in  Boundary district, is distant 118 miles  from-Nelson.���The two- towns-are-eon-  nected by a railway, over which trains  run daily. Letters dated at Greenwood  on the 26th and postmarked the 27th  reached Nelson on the 29th. These letters should reach Nelson the day un  which they are mailed ; but the postoffice  officials prefer to send nil letters that are  mailed at Greenwood for Nelson to Rossland first, where they are held up for sixteen hours and then forwarded on to  their destination.  A LATE ARRIVAL FROM DAWSON  Says that City is Booming.  G. M. Dyer, whose arrival from Dawsori  was mentioned in Thk Tribun.: yesterday, reports having  left  Dawson on October 29th.   The river  closed up first 011  the 17th and opened  again  on the 29th.  The weather was quite cold, with considerable snow.    Mr.  Dyer thinks Dawsori  will see the best year  of its history the  coming summer.    Labor  is scarce on account of the surplus population going to  Cape Nome.    Wages are $1 to $1.25 per  hour,  and  provisions  reasonably cheap  The Klondike wage-earner ought to make  a good stake from the opening of operations  this  fall   until  the  clean-up next  June.  Dawsoii is having a boom. An electric  street railway is being built .through the  city, which will cross the Klondike river  and connect Dawson City and Klondike  City. The rails are partially laid and  construction is being pushed. It is proposed to exteud this line up the Klondike  river to the mouth of Bonanza creek and  thence to Grand Porks, at the forks of  Bonanza and Eldorado. The line will be  constructed if a charter can be secured  from parliament.  Mr. Dyer has been in the Yukon country since 189(5. Ho is interested in  Hunker and Dominion creek claims, aiid  thinks that the Dominion is the greatest  creek in the Klondike district. The pay-  streak on that creek, which is a very  wide one, is being Avorked for fifteen  miles. When asked what the output for  next season would be, he replied: "I do  not see how it can fall below $2*5,000,000.  The production for this past season,  according to the royalties receipted for  by the government, was over $17,000,000.  The revenue to the government being  something over $800,000. With the enormous amount of improved machinery  being u-**ed this winter, such as steam  thawers, engines, 'pumps,- hoisters, etc.,  together with the increased number of  mines being operated over that of .-last  year, 1 hardly see how it is possible-for  my estimate of $25,000,000 to be far  wrong, at least to be wrong on the short  side."

It favors the candidacy of  alderman Fletcher for mayor on tlio  ground that lie is not a chronic office-  seeker. Mr. Fletcher sought office in  1S97, in 1898, and in 1899, and according  to the Economist will seek office in 1900.  Thin is a fairly steady hunt for office,  seeing that the first civic election was  held in Nelson in April, 1S97.  Rossland a Five-Cent Beer Town.  Advices from Rossland are that the  two breweries there liave raised the price  of beer from $8 to $10 per barrel, claiming that there was no money in it for  them at the former price. They say that  if the salooninen do not like it, they can  raise the price of beer from 5 cents to 10  cents. The salooninen do not like the  idea, as they say people who have been  used to drinking 5 cent beer do not like  the 10-cent brand.  Banks Fifth.  Although Nelson has a population considerably under 10,000, it has a jewelry  store that is only excelled by four others  in Canada, Jacob Dover's jewelry store  is classed as the fifth largest ill the whole  of the Dominion.  The Application Withdrawn.  A meeting of the public works commit-  I tee w as held yesterday afternoon, when  it was announced by alderman Hillyer  that P. Burns & Co. had withdiawn their  request for permission to make n con-  tractrwith the'Wes^Kootenay "Power &"*"*  Light Company for a supply of power.  Tliis disposed of the question with 10-  spect to the entrance into the city of the  West Kootenay Power & Light Company.  An informal discussion took place as to  what the tramway company should do to  put it- tails in a shape to satisfy tlie city  engineer, but the consideration of the  matter was deferred until the regular  meeting   of    the    council     on   Monday  City Wharf Bylaw is Dropped.  Present indications aie that the bylaw  to rai-u Js'.IOOQ for the icpair of tiie city  wharf will not be submitted to the ratepayers on Tuesday, December .".th, with  the other bylaws. The tioublc appears  to bo th.tt the city council bungled the  niattoi and intioducod tlie bylaw at a  special meeting of the council instead of  at a i egular meeting, as it is held it should  have been intioduced. It is held that  the business tiaiiaaeted at tho special  meeting has no force or effect and that,  therefore, tho voting upon the other bylaws will proceed as if the special meeting h.id never been held, the bylaw for  the lepair of the whaif being dropped.  The Other Side.  "What are you jumping on the express  companies* for?" was a question that was  asked the writer on Josephine street  yesterday by the manager of a largo  wholesale house doing business in Nelson,  and the answer given was not ut all satisfactory. The manager warming up ��aid:  "Both express companies doing business  at Nelson are a great help to business  men, and never come in competition with  our business houses. Often when we get  stuck, the express companies help us out."  Apparently, there are two sides to even  the Express Question.  ~-9sJ THE  TRIBUTE:  NELSON, B. C. THURSDAY NOVEMBER 30  1899.

At  the age of  22  lie  met  Sir Charles Lyell,  and accompanied him on a scientific tour  of Nova  .Scotia,  giving special attention  to the carboniferous  rocks and such vestiges of life as were to be found in them.  In   1840  he   was   in   Scotland   studying  chemistry at   the   University of   Edinburgh, and on his return to Nova Scotia  in 1850, lie applied  his  knowledge to investigating the natural  history of Nova  Scotia and New Brunswick.    The results  of   these   investigations   appear   in   his  "Acadian Geology."    Iu  1850 he was appointed superintendent  of education for  Nova Scotia, and was associated with the  first normal school there.    In 1855, he became principal  and  professor of natural  history at McGill University at Montreal,  which positions  he  held till his resigna-  ii&n in 1803.    His fame tis a*8.-"_direator  is connected inseparably with the growth  and influence of this institution.  Sir William's reputation ab a geologist  rests upon .his investigations of the fossil  remains contained in the pal.i-o._oic rocks  of Eastern Canada, and iu this field he i.s  recognized as an authority  both  in this  country and in  Europe.   While his opposition   to  the* origin  of   species  that  were promulgated  by Darwin  and  the  Darwinian school of geologists, kept him  from being regarded as a leader, he made  many discoveries of importance, and his  writings cover  many  subjects.    He discovered the first fossil reptile in the coal  formation of America, and also the first  known paheozoic* laud-snail.    In 1803, sir  William issued his "Air Breathers of the  Coal Period," an account  of the reptiles  and other land animals found in the Nova  Scotia coal-beds.     Some years  later  he  claimed to have found in a pre-Cambrian  limestone   the   oldest   known   form  of  animal life, the Eozoon Canadense.    This  discovery created widespread discussion,  and the~fossil"-"iiature of the-so-called ve~  mains is still doubted.    .Sir William published also two volumes on the "Devonian  and Carboniferous Flora of Eastern North  America,"   one  of   the most important  contributions ever made to our knowledge  of the plant life of the carboniferous era.  Among   his other  work*-  are  a "Handbook of Geography and Natural IlisLory  in Nova Scotia," "Areiea or Sfcudie*.   of  Creation in Geuesis,"  "The Origin of bhe  World," "Foshi! Men  and  Their Modern  Representatives,"   "The Change of  Life  in Geological Timet*," and "The  Story of  Earth and Man."    lie travelled in Egypt  and Syria in  1884, and after hi*,  return  wrote "Modern Science in   Bible  Lands,"  and "Modern Ideas  of   Evolution."    J lis  last work was on the "Canadian Ico Age,"  whieh   appeared   iu   1893.   Beside-* the  writings enumerated, he was'  a contributor to  the "Proceedings of tiie London  Geological Society," and to many  scientific, educational  and  religious  publications iu Canada, the  United  States  and  Great Britain.    He held degrees and honors from  various  universities, including  that   of L.L.D. from  the  University of  Edinburgh, and from Columbia.    In 1882  he received the Lyell medal of the Geological   Societj**   of   London, was   made a  And Good Britons All.  General Buller, whose whereabouts is  keeping the world guessing, is English ;  while general White, the undismayed  and manly defender of Ladysmith, is  Irish.

To enlighten those who are eagerly  following the descriptive'reports of the  battles in South Africa some brief  account of tlie varieties of artillery fire,  and peculiar conditions suitable to the  employment of each, may not come  amiss, says the Daily Graphic. It may be  stated at.once that with one solitary exception���the* spherical star shell made  for the 6.3-inch howitzer���all modern  artillery projectiles are, of _ elongated  conoid.il form, and that forged steel has  superseded cast-iron in their construction,  for the very simple reason that the  former material gives a longer projectile  with thinner Avails, and that, consequently, a larger bursting charge and  space for more destructive factors can be  obtained with the sitme total weight.  Common shell have been described as  "locomotive mines," and are intended  principally for the destruction of material and for rauge-finding purposes,  though they are sometimes used, at  both short and long ranges, against  troops in mass or against troops iu line.  It is desirable that a common shell should  contain as powerful a bursting charge as  possible, and efficiency in this respect has  been much increased by the adoption of  lyddite in lieu of powder. Except for  range-finding purposes, common shell are  rarely fired by field batteries, and never  by horse batteries. They are pre-eminently the projectiles for field howitzers,  and in the new 5 inch variety of this  weapon, which is to supersede all others,  they weigh when full fifty pound*-*, aud  contain a lyddite bursting charge of five  pounds and one ounce. An incendiary  .star, consisting of a brown paper cylinder about two inches long, paraffined  and filled with incendiary composition,  and primed "at each end with a quick  match, is inserted in tlie plug-hole when  the object i.s to desuoy buildings or  stockades. Common shell are exploded  by means of percussion fuses, which ignite on striking the object or ground.  Tho limit for error permissable in the  ease of common -.hell is very small; it  must burst at or close to the object to be  pffective. Common shell are painted  black. Double shell, a moie powerful  variety, are distinguished by a blue  point.  FULL LINE OF  Front Doors  Inside Doors  Screen Doors   Windows  Inside Finish  local and coast.

C, and  Dawson City, Yuk,or( District.  Shrapnel���This projectile i.s used  against troops in all formations. It contains a bursting charge, placed either in  the base or in the head���the latter is the  latest pattern���just sufficient to open  the shell, aud a number of bullets,  which are thus liberated in their  flight at the proper moment, rain  down over nearly an acre of ground.  The shrapnel shell used by the 12-  pounder Horse Artillery gun contains  102 bullets, those by the 15-pounder field  gun 210 bullets, and those by the 5-inch  field howitzer from 318 to 350. bullets.  The striking effect of the bullets is dependent upon the remaining velocity of  the shell at burst, aud upon the exact  timing of the explosion, so as to inflict  the most destructiAre consequence on the  objects aimed at: Case shot will be found  with all guns on field service. It consists  of a thin metal cylinder, packed with  balls. The case breaking by the discharge, the balls are all liberated by the  time they reach the muzzle, and spread  over a considerable space.  Shell fire does not cause much damage  in actual loss of life, but the moral effect  is great, troops under shell fire not being  able to stand the strain which the terrifying influences the fire creates.

The ease of Thurston vs Tattersall et  al has been occupying the attention of  judge Forin since eleven o'clock yesterday morning and will likely continue  through today's session of the court.  Thurston claims to have secured the sale  of the Chapleau mine, near Slocan City,  for Benjamin Robertson, J. E. Tattersall,  J. E. Gwillim, and F. Dick for $30,000.  The property was sold to J. M. Williams,  who has made a payment of $1500.  Thurston as broker claims $.3000 as commission on the sale. The present action  is to secure the payment of $150 as commission on the $1500 payment. A payment of $8000 is to be made on the property on December 1st.  Judge Forin reserved judgment in the  case of Cornelius Murphy against W. H.  Brandon, wherein the former asked $150  damages for the detainer of a house at  Slocan City. Murphy was attempting to  move the building from tlie" old Brandon  townsite, and was prevented from doing  so by a temporary injunction taken out  by Brandon.  The K. of P. held an election of officers  on Tuesday night, which resulted as follows : L. Scott, chancellor commander;  K. J. Bradley, vice-chancellor; A. H. Clements, prelate; R. G.
